The railway people have been getting- a move on during' the past week  and ore is going* out more freely.  Slides on the .road still continue to  worry thenr somewhat, but the work  train just put on will enable the company to keep the. cuts clear. <��� The  roads from the mines have broken up  and several of the properties have  stopped shipping1. About 1,500: tons  of oM is at the upper eiid,*> which will  keep the trammer busy for three  weeks. Two hundred and fifty-two  tons.in all went out over the railway  last week, valued at $25,200. It was  consigned to Omaha, except 20 tons  from the Reco, which went to Tacoma.  The Pilot Bay smelter ships 20 tons  of bullion daily to Aurora, 111.  From the initial shipment on September 13, 1894, till January 1, 1895,  the Slocan mines sent out over the  Nakusp & Slocan Railway.���  $ 77,125  9,125  103,150  ��� 4,775  8,700  1,500  4,225  6,000  1,500"  Total 2,151 $215,100  Since the first of the year the list by  the same route shows:���  NAKUSP ASSAYED.

Capt. Moore and John Vallance are  seeking incorporation under the laws  of the province as the Slocan Tramway Company. The object of the  company is to build a trunk tramway  up H-owson creek, connecting the  concentrator at New Daluth with the  Idaho and Alamo group of mines, for  the purpose of getting out ore. This  will be the first company incorporated under Mr. Kellie's famous bill.  Interest in the Dominion elections  is dead.  A jeweler is the latest addition to  the town.  A deed for the schoolhouse site will  be furthcoming in a few days. [  The ball given by the Quadrille  Club on Friday was a success.  It is rumored that some of our business men will build residences this  summer.  Mrs. Geo. Graham, wife ol Conductor Graham, has been quite ill during  the week.  Mayor Parker, of Burton City, was  in town this week. He says business  is reviving. '     ��������� "    ., A  The sawmill resumes operations on  April 1. A large number; of orders  are on hand.       ,;^ ::       <a  An extensive addition, in the shape  of a sample room, has been added to  the Hotel Nakusp.  Robert Madden and T. Hyland are-  building an hotel at Nugget City, in"  the Cariboo creek camp.  ��� D. A. McDougald has arrived at;  Vancouver from Honolulu, but he will  not return here for some time.  J. D. Devlin is building an hotel on  his pre-emption on Cariboo creek.  His townsite will" be known as New  Galway.  .-'. ",;'-: ';������" ,  A number of venturesome spirits,  who left here for Cariboo creek, have  returned, as there is too much snow  yet on the hills for prospecting..  J. McDonald has had a busy winter  building boats to be put in commission  on the bay this summer. He has  enough orders in to keep him busy  till June.     ���'���'~v*; a  The increase in travel is quite noticeable, and the arrival of the boat  gives the town a busy appearance.  The C. & K. people claim that business has opened up four weeks earlier  than usual.  first Appearance  Of the New Denver Brass Band Before  tli'o Public.'--.  Concentrator at the Alpha.  Gold In Lardeau.  During the winter 48 men have  been washing the banks of the Lardeau for gold. Two men took out  lf3,0C0 in dust and nuggets between  them, and all have made good wages.  Some of the nuggets taken out were  worth |25 each. A large quantity of  float, carrying gold, was found in the  creek, -and the miners will combine  and prospect the mountains wiuh the  intention of discovering the ledge  xro'm whence came this quartz.  Eraser & Chalmers, of Chicago, have  received an order from the Alpha  people for a large concentrating plant  to be erected at their property on  Four Mile. It is thought the capacity  of the plant will be 80 tons daily.  Mr. Owens, who represents the Chicago outfit and vho superintended the  building of the concentrator at New  Duluth, went down to the Alpha on  Tuesday and looked over the ground.  He will meet Alex. McKenzie, the  principal owner of the mine, ac St.  Paul and make final arrangements  with him. This will make the forty-  second concentrating plant Mr.Owens  will have set up.  Friday evening the members of the  New Denver Brass Band held their  first public gathering  in Shannon's  hall, and theattendance 'far exceeded  anticipations. The hall was crowded,  each domicile sending a representative. The gathering took the form  of a house party, numerous tables and  games being provided for the guests.  While this recreation was in progress  a capital programing was.car ried but  under Jho direction of W Tbomlin-  son, president of the band; Following  is the programme:���  Selection by band, march; instrumental, Messrs. Webb and Brindle  and Miss Estabrooks, on violin, cornet, and organ; trio, Mrs. Shannon,  Messrs. Taylor and Brindle; recitation, Mrs. Reider; sold, C. E, Smitheringale, encored; instrumental, organ, Miss Estabrooks;^duett, Messrs.  Brindle "and Smitheringale; violin  solo, Miv Reider, * encored; solo, C. E.  Smitheringale,encored; instrumental,  violin,cornet and organ, Messrs. Webb  and Brindle and Miss Estabrooks;  selection by band, encored.  At this juncture the l efreshments,  -which had been, kindly provided by  the . ladies, were ' served*; " Next "in"  order was an impromptu concert, in  which Messrs. Reider, Smitheringale,  Gates, and Delaney and the band  took part, the proceedings terminating with the National Anthem. Miss  Estabrooks acted as accom panist  during the evening in an acceptable  manner. Throughout the programme  was of exceptional merit and highly  appreciated. The band boys came  in for the lion's share of the praise for  their selections, as the progress shown  by three weeks' practice surprised  all. Thanks are due the ladies of the  town and those contributing to the  programme for their valuable assistance. No admission was charged,  vet the voluntary contributions were  sufficient to place the band out of debt  and put something in the treasury.  A dance followed.  MINING NOTES,  Happenings    of    Interest   Among   the  Treasure Vaults.  Claim jumpers infest,- the Trail  creek camp.  More men are being put on at the  Ainsworth camp.  The force at the Pilot Bay smelter  is being increased.  Up to last night silver had advanced in price to 64 cents.  J. M. Harris, of the Reco, will visit  his relatives -in Virginia.  The Reco closed down Saturday till  next July.    Bad roads the cause. '  The last loads of ore were brought  down to the concentrator Tuesday,  the roads having broken up.  Jap King is doing some work on  his claims on Goat river. He will  return to the Slocan next month.  The   Trail   Mining  Company,   of  Chicago, with a capital of $250,000, '  has been registered under the provincial laws.   The company will operate  on Trail creek.  A Fancy Document.  E. Hesketh, of Nakusp, has purchased two lots from A. McGilliverv,  on Slocan avenue, just beyond Union  street. He will erect a cottage and  move his family here.  Recorder Sproat has received for  record one of the most fancv documents yet seen here. It is a deed of  conveyance of a quarter interest in  the Alpha and Black Bear mineral  claims on Four Mile, made . by'��� Aiex."  McKenzie in favor of H.-..C. Hens-  braugh, of Devil's Lake, for the sum  of $11, G30.52i. On the document are  the seals and signatures of Secretary  of State Gresham and Attorney-General Olney, of the American Government, besides those of sundry notaries  public; while hanging therefrom are  enough variegated ribbons to stock a  milliner's shop.  Capt. Moore went out this morning  to Calgary and Duluth, to be gone  two weeks.  The Dominion Parliament has been  summoned to meet on April 18, so the  elections will not take place for a  while yet.  During the week a representative  of the Pilot Bay smelter has been interviewing a number of the principal  Slocan mine owners relative to securing their output.  Wm. Roberts has been appointed  superintendent of the Blue Bell mine.  He is well qualified to fill the position  having had many years' experience  in practical mining.  One stack is running at the Pilot  Bay smelter, turning out 20 tons of  bullion daily. It will be increased  to 100 tons a day when the men get  accustomed to their work.  Development work is being done  on the King Solomon, a claim adjoining the suburbs of Kaslo. The ore  resembles that of Trail creek and  there is a large body of it.  By the railway's delay in getting  out the ore from Three Forks, the  mine owners have gained over iir5  per ton more profit, by the rise in silver.    It's an ill wind," etc.  Work on the tram way to the Idaho  and Alamo mines is .to commence almost immediately.    It will  be com  pleted in a month.    Capt, Moore will  get thtT rails in Calgary-  The Gertrude claim, an extension  of the No. 1, at Trail, has been purchased by John Murphy, A, B. Rail-  ton, Frank Gibbs, C. P. Oud in and  H. W. Bonne. Development work  will be begun on a large scale.  E. H. Tomlinson's property, the  Last Chance, near the Noble Five, is  turning out a beauty. Last week a  second vein, paralleling"the. first, was  uncovered in a crosscut, about 50 feet  from the incline shaft. The vein is  10 inches wide and high grade.  Hon. James Baker, the Minister of  Mines, advertises a denial in the Spokane papers of the report which is  current that aliens are prohibited  from acquiring: mineral claims in  British Columbia,except by purchase.  The law has not been altered in that  respect.  ir'-. I S     Vi     f'  t"Y*"  V i    \     -fc* \  <i     -t.  tSj,- Page 2.  THE   LEDGE.  Second Year  ��tie  g^Jr0^  Published every Thursday.

SLIGHTLY INCONGRUOUS.  pell ed to sink them and turn his attention to affairs of public weal. Mr.  Bostock is not the man to represent  this constituencv.  That Mr. Bostock's candidature in  the Yale-Cariboo district against Mr.  , Mara is slightly incongruous has become patent to many. It is even so  with his platform. In the first place  Mr. Bostock had had his mind made  up to run in the citv of Victoria, but  his services were ueclined. Then  our good Grit friends of the capital,  took it upon themselves to voice public opinion of this district, and sent  him. hither, with scarcely a recommendation and scant prospect of success.  In Mr. Mara the Conservatives have  a candidate who has been identified  with the progress of the country for  the past twenty years, and his course  in the Dominion House has been of  material assistance to his constituency.  He is respected in the Commons and  commands influence. His money has  been freely invested in enterprises  that have served to open up the country. Can anything like this be said  of Mr. Bostock? No; not a word.  Beyond, his properties at Kamloops  and Ducks, he has no interest here  and is known to but few.  Mr. Bostock does not' profess, any  knowledge on general affairs of the  Dominion, and will content himself  with purely local issues. He acknowledges allegiance to, the Liberal  party under Hon. Mr. Laurier, and  yet brings out a platform of his own,  and In'it-says "-practically nothing  about Federa 1 questions. Mr. Laurier  wants free trade as in England, but  Mr. Bostock says that is not possible,  as situations are different. The latter  wants economy in public expenditures, and in the same breath asks  for money to open up the rivers to  navigation. He wants free trade for  the province, and yet wishes to protect the agriculturists. He desires to  have mining machinery entered free  and Government works thrown open  to public tender���-issues that have  been accompl ished facts for years.  But a still more important factor to  us in West Kootenay is, that Mr.  Bostock, a mono-metallist, comes to  ask our suffrages when, if called on  in Parliament, he would vote against  silver���our main industry. If elected  his local cries would avail him nothing at Ottawa, and he would be com-  ,."-.Turn the rascals out" is a cry frequently raised by our Grit friends;  We did. In 1879 we fired bodily the  whole   nest   of them,   with   Dickv  ��� *  Cart\yright at their head, and have  kept them out ever since. Nothing  could prevail upon the electorate to  let them in again.  The Liberals of Victoria in convention assembled rejected Mr. Bostock  as a candidate for that city, but delegated him to Yale-Cariboo. The  people of this constituency feel flattered by the gratuitous compliment paid  their intelligence, and they will elect  Mr. Bostock by a handsome majority  ���to stav at home.  Messrs. Prior and Earle have been  unanimously chosen by the Conservatives of Victoria to again contest that  dual constituency. With Mr.Haslam  for the Nanaimo���or Vancouver Island  ���riding, a trio has been formed that  ensures a complete victory for the  Government from the Island. The  Mainland will be heard from in due  time.  Eastern Liberals have received another severe shock, in that A. F. Mc-  Intyre, Q.C., of Ottawa, has repudiated the policy of his party and joined  forces with the Conservatives. Mr.  Mclntyre has been one of the foremost  Liberals in the Capital City since  1882, and his desertion has caused his  old party much uneasiness. As rats  hustle out of a sinking ship, even so  are Lauder's followers deserting him.  This is the way our neighbors to  the south look at it, as per the Chicago Tribune:���"There is no part of  the Enfiflish-speaking world that has  stood the depression so well as Canada, and consequently no government  in the English speaking world is in  better form to ask the people for a renewal of confidence." And yet the  Grits have the. gall to ask us to re-  adopt the ruinous policy of the Mackenzie regime.   Never.   ;  Apropos of the Grit platform of free  trade for, the Dominion similar to  that in vogue in the Mother Land, the  trade unions of London, England, report 36,000 skilled workmen out of  employment, with scores of thousands  of laborers. In Glasgow, Scotland, no  1 ess than 40,00(3 people are being.fed  daily at the soup kitchens. The Grits  want Canada to be similar!y situated.  We give Mr. Bostock credit for more  humanity than that, but would advise,  him to quit the company he is in, for  it is bad, very bad.  The vacancies in the Local Legislature, caused bv the elevation of  Hon. Mr. Davie to the Bench and Mr.  Eberts to the attorney-generalship of  the province, will be re-occupied by  Government supporters. Hon. Mr.  Eberts has been re-elected for South  Victoria by acclamation, making the  third time he has been honored by  that constituency. In Chief Justice  Davie's eld riding, Cowicha .-Alberni,  F. A. Wood has received the nomination and the Opposition will not put  up a rival. The Opposition have  shown great courtesy in both instances. '-. "������'���'���'" '''���'       "���''-  f~W. BRUNER, M.

Deceased had  ..suffered great agony for eight months  as the result of an accident received  in the Sierra Nevada mine.  There are now 22 men at work in  the shaft commenced from the Last  Chance tunnel a few weeks ago.  Drifting has been com menced at a  depth of 35 feet, and has already been  extended 25 feet on either side of the  shaft. There are 12 feet of concentrating ore, with a streak of the solid  article that does not require concentrating. The lessees are working  three, eight-hour shifts. Machines are  used for drill ing: ancl��� the outlook is  very promising. The concentrator  , started, running on Tuesday, but only  the day shift fur the present.

Thursday the notice of sheriffs sale  of the Hunter mine was posted: The  date of the sale was fixed for March  30, the amount at issue aggregating  nearly 19,000.  Austin Wilson, who was severely  injured by a fall in the Morning mine  on Thanksgiving day, will go to  Wallace, to have an operation performed on his foot by Dr. Sims.  Giis Renkert, J. EL Foss and H. J.  Rice went up to the Military group of  mines on Monday, to make preparations for the season's work. The properties are located at Fish lake, five  miles from here,and are in an elevated region. Six men prospected the  group last fall, until checked by cold  weather. The ore is of exceptionally  high grade, and the properties are of  great promise.  ' WALLACE.  Dr. W. S. Sims has leased the Holland hospital, on the west end of  Cedar street, and is having it put in  thorough repair.  Winfield Ervin, of ihe First National hank of this place, has been  married at Garfield, Wash.,to Miss J.  Shannon, of Murray.  Mrs. G. Rossi died last Wednesday,  of dropsy, after an illness of several  months. Her body Was taken to San  Francisco for interment.  The dwelling house next door to  Mrs. Kane's lodging house took fire  in one of the rooms Wednesday night.  The blaze was extinguished before  much damage had been done.  A. shaft is being sunk on the Granite mine, 500 or 600 feet from the  mouth of the tunnel. The men are  now down 65 feet. At the depth of  100 feet they will commence to drill.  Six men are 'working:..on the property  at present. .'  . .  On Friday George Clark and Fred  Shears met with a painful accident,  while drilling in the shaft of the  Granite mine.

" ��� a  I am opposed to the policy of protection which,  has been pursued for the" last sixteen years, as being unfitted to the requirements of the country  and benefiting the few at the expense of the many  I join in the condemnation of the corrupt man-  ne i in which' the administration of the affairs oi  this country has been carried on during the time  that the present party has been in'office.  I consider:���  1. That a- customs tariff, if imposed at all,  should only be for the purpose of raising a revenue, not for the purpose of protection:  2. .That freer trade relations with Great Britain and the United States would immediately  benefit this country:  3. That under existing circumstances and the  peculiar nature of.'the country mining machinery should be allowed to come in free of duty:  4. That the-natural resources of the country  should be the first to be developed:  5. That in order to accomplish "this end the  conn try'.should be opened up, the rivers made  navigable, and increased facilities for communi  cation and -transportstion afforded:  6. That the mail and other contracts let by  , the government should be put up to public teii-  ��� der:, -    - .,'' .  7. That the .strictest economy should be observe fl in the admin .titration of tiie public service; and all unnecessary expenditure should be  stopped:     ' ��� , a   . .  .  8. That* all complaints in regard to the disposal of government lands and issuing of  titles  should be inquired into' and any grievances re  divssod,-.and the surveys in  the railway   belt  completed as quickly as possible.  As this district comprises so large an extent of  country it will be 'impossible for me to visit every  polling division and become acquainted with, the  vlcctors, but :1. shall make, a point of visiting as  many aspos-ihlc and holding meetings for the purpose of placing my views on public matters before  you, and learning from you the local requirements  of each "district.
