Mr. and Mrs. John Hector arrived  in town on the night of the 10th from  Revelstoke. The citizens were all in  attendance at a surprise party in their  honor, the same evening, at the Columbia House. The party was an enjoyable one.  -OF-  -AT-  Sg-BTW     r>E3ST"V"EPl,    IB.   G  Wilson Cx*eek Properties.  Wm. Thomlinson. went up Wilson  creek Thursday to look at some mineral claims in which F.

It is a wet ore proposition, with a narrow but well denned streak of galena  The development on it is an open cut  in about nine feec. There are two or  three tons of ore on the dump.

About four miles from Three Forks  on the north fork of Carpenter creek  work ds being done on several claims.  The Phoenix is being worked by Gib  son, Smith & Bruner.    They have 18  inches of concentrating,   and five of  clean ore.   Cress,  Wall ,& Ross will  make a mine out of the Roulette, and  Mitchell is developing his property.  These claims are in the dry pre belt.*  and a trail from Three Forks would  enable the Dolly Varden,   Alturas,  and many others' to do business.  Take in the Leland.  James Delaney, who has been 11  years in Kootenay and can be classed  with the oldest pioneers has charge  of the Leland House in Kaslo. He  has recently, with the aid of J. W.  Seaman, painted and decorated the  Leland until it looks as fresh and  sweet as the flowers in Mav. The  "rooms are the best in the city. In  the bar the largest and coolest glasses  of beer in the country are obtainable  for the usual fee. James has three  pumps in the bar, while the largest  mirror in the mountains enables  each customer to get a ��� life view of  himself, and sip the soothing cocktail,  at the same time.

Holdich, of Revelstoke, is doing some assay work at the Silver  King, on Toad Mountain.  E. Shannon and his partners will  endeavor to locate the ledge on the  Lydia, on a line with that of the  Currie.  T. Duffy and partners are working  the Noonday, down on the Galena  Farm, with every prospect of striking  the-solid ledge.  J.  M.   Harris  is   applying  for   a  Crown grant on the Loudoun, situat  ed near the confluence of Sandon and  Carpenter creeks.  A. D. Coplen, of Murray, Idaho, is  in t] e district. He owns the Cube  and Chicago, two claims in the vicinity of the Freddie Lee.  Jim Warclner, the hero of a hundred booms,is in Philadelphia, organizing a company to buy mining -property around Leadville.  A body of high grade ore has been  encountered in the lo wer tunnel of  the Reco. It runs between 3,0*00 and  4,000 bunces to the ton.  All the ore at Three Forks, with  the exception of abcut four carloads  of Reco ore,, has been shipped to the  smelters. The Reco ore will be sent  out in July.  This week there has been a constant stream of prospectors outfitting  for the foot of the lake, many coming  from the Forks. The town is well  nigh deserted.  Another uiinnel is being run on the  Last Chance, .-��tb tap the ledge, 150  feet lower than the present tunnel.  An ore shed is being constructed, and  when it is finished a night shift will  be put on.   ____________  Bonded The Kootenay.  A. E. Humphreys, president of the  Duluth concern that "is operating so  heavily in the Slocan, is getting his  finger into the Trail creek pie, tho'  he has to pay for it. Last week he  bonded a trio of claims headed by the  Monte Cristo, for$()5,000. This week  he has taken hold of the Kootenay  property, on a bond of 175,000, a  tenth being paid down, the balance  in one year. Phil Aspinwali was  the lucky seller, and still retains a  tenth interest. The Kootenay is  about two miles east of the Le Roi,  and is supposed to be on the same  ledge. Page 2.  THE   LEDGE.

The revenue of Canada last year  was |36,374,693, and the expenditure  $37,585,025. The anticipated revenue  this year is $33,800,000, and the expenditure $38,300,000, net deficit of  $4,500,000. To meet the deficit  changes will be made, in the tariff,  especially upon liquor and sugar.  Some of the' changes in the tariff are  as follows: Alcoholic liquors and  spirituous extracts, $2.25 a gallon;  and 30 per cent. ad. valorem; condensed milk, 3| cents per can; condensed coffee, 35 per cent; biscuits,  not svveefcened, 25 per cent.; sweetened^ 27| per cent.; canned fruit, 2|  cents per lb,; fruits in spirits,' 82-; per  gallon; jams and jelliesand preserves  3| cents per lb,; paints and colors,-  ground/ in spirits, fL 12^ per gallon;  sugar, over "No. 16, Dutch standard,  1 14-100 cents per lb.; glucose and  grape sugar, .1J cents per lb.; sugar  candy, peels, etc., | cent per lb. and  35 per cent.; syrup and molasses, f  centner lb.; molasses, not. further  manufactured than to be extracted  from the cane, free. There will be  a bounty of .75 cents ::per .100 lbs. on  beet root sugar manufactured in Canada, and if over 70 degrees of polar-  iscope test, 11 per 100 lbs.  The min era 1 production of Ontario  during 1894 was valued at $6,088,758,  a slight decrease from the previous  year. Petroleum, brick and nickel  were the most prominent. Only |B2, -  776 worth of gold was : produced and  not an ounce of silver.  The Provincial Government borrowed, in London,last week,��425,000  The loan was floated at 95, and is  payable in 1941. , This large amount  should enable the Government to expend more money 911 Kootenay improvements than is being done at the  present time.  The Players' Club in New York,  which was founded by Edwin Booth  and remains one of his most striking  monuments, throws its doors open to  its friends only once a year, on a sort  of "ladies' day," , and the latest observance of this custom is made the  subject of a highly interesting letter  irom "Flaneur" in the Argonaut of  May 18th.  Many mines in Kootenay are .becoming dangerous to work, and steps  shojild be taken by the Government  to render the miner's life as free from  danger as possible. An inspector  should be appointed, whose duty it  would be to see that each 'mine had  piroper exits and sufficient timbering  to reduce the risks of underground  work to a minimum.  The Sentinel, of Kamioops, recently stated that there was small pox in  New Denver. Where it obtained the  information frbm we cannot say No  other paper contained it, and as the  Kamioops paper is edited principally  by the paste^pot and stolen news, from  exchanges, the item must have been  horn in the office. It was base lie,  as small pox does not exist0in New  Denver or any part of the Slocan, and  boiler plated journals should exercise  caution in circulating damaging reports about healthy towns.  The cry raised by many eastern:  papers of the Indian outbreak oh the  Kootenay river is all bosh. The  managers of the reclamation works  showed poor business judgment in  becoming alarmed about a common  assault case, If they wish to sell their  lands to settlers, they had better suppress the false rumors about warlike  redskins We found the Indians all  right. They are, harmless and are  too lazy to do anything except steal  a plug of tobacco or"^a cake of soap  when an opportunity . presents itself.  There are only about two dozen of  them all told, and it is not necessary  to send a detachment of mounted  police to the scene, for everything is  quiet on the Kootenay.     ,,  Oil Springer Creek.  Con Fielding and his partner, Bob  Cooper, have a claim called the Arlington, on Springer creek, seven  miles from the foot of the lake. The  ledge is 10 feet wide and carries native silver and grey copper. Last  week Thompson, Mervin, Long and  Tucker made two locations on the  same ledge. They named the claims  the Silver Leaf and Portland.  Fabulously Ricli.  A. Harrison has the satisfaction of  knowing that he has set the town wild  today. Last summer he located a  claim on Eight: Mile creek, about  three miles from the lake, and on the  high range of mountains, one mile  from the Daisy, lie has done a smal 1  amount of work and opened up 26  inches of a paystreak. He has had  two assays made by O. Benedum,and  showed the result this morning. They  reached the fabulous figures of $2,-  699.50 and $2,877.25 per ton in gold  respectively, being the highest ever  obtained in this district. Harrison  asserts that he will have recorded in  a day or two another location of gold  rock," 26 feet width of ledge, running  .$40 to the ton. These figures have  set everyone on the jump, and Eight  Mile properties are booming.

Second Year  GO   D PROSPECTS.  East Kootenay Has   Some Rich Quartz  Showings,  The secretary of the Fort Steele  Mining' Association states that the  country in the vicinity of the placer  diggings on Wild Horse creek promises to develop into a Quartz mining  camp in the near future. Within the  last year a number of new locations  have been made, which have every  appearance of turning out well when  capital can be brought in to bear on  their .development.��� The following  description of some of the claims will  give a fair idea of the result that may  be expected when mining operations  are commenced.  r Starting with the claims called the  Dardanelles and Motherwell, which  are located on the mountain side  about 2,000 feet above the creek and  about three miles above the old placer,  camp, a good trail of about two miles-  has been made up to the property  from the wagon road that follows up  the Wild Horse. The ledge is four  feet in w'dth and can be traced for  over 2,000 feet, the country rock being ^late, porphyry and granite. It  'isjin the slate and" porphyry that the  ledge crops out, the foot wall being  slate and the hanging wall porphyry.  An incline has been run up in on the  property for 80 feet, showing it up to  advantage. Numerous assays have  been made, some of the returns being  very high, but the average is about  $22rn gold. These/claims were discovered by Messrs. Banks and  Young, the present owners, in the  summer of 18 J3.'  About a mile farther up the strea m,  on the same side, N. S. A. Wallinger  has a good property, the ledge being  three feet wide, the ore being black  sulphurets, assaying ��25 in gold and  4 ounces in silver.  Then a mile or so farther up the  creek there is the Golden Five group,  consisting.of eight claims located by  Charles Mlwood and partners in June  1894. There are four ledges about  300 feet apart, cutting the formation  (which is porphyrinic slate) at about  45 degrees, the dip being about 30  degrees; they crop out for about 8C0  feet on the surface, covered at each  end by slides. At the point of discovery on the Queen of Sheba, the ore  chute is 2�� feet in width; on the King  Solomon it is six feet, but not so high  grade; the assay returns show $113  in gold with a few ounces in silver.  An open cut 45 feet in length has  been run along the ledge, showing  up an , ore body 2^ feet in width of  black sulphurets. Then about 1.00J.  teet higher up the mountain, behind  the Banks & Young location, there is  the Lillie May, owned by Chas. Lentz  and B. W. Jones, assaying |22 in  gold, two ledges crossing each other  one running north and south 115 feet  wide, the crop ledge being about 18  inches in width; t!ie large ledge is  traceable for 300 feet, (in the west  side of the creek at the head of Victoria Gulch, an ofrshoot from the  Wild Horse, Wm. Voss has a claim  which he.'loca e:i in 18^7, being the  first quartz' location on the creek.  The ledge is about ('0 feet wide and  will concentrate from 2�� tons to 1. A  tunnel has been run in 75 feet, cutting the ledge, showing a fiue body  of ore which averages 20 oz. in silver,  35 per cent, lead, and S3 in gold.  There is plenty of water for mining  and concentrating purposes.  There are other claims on the creek  which show up well.  CHARLES W. McANN,  BARRISTER, &c,  MINING LAWS  A  SPECIALTY.
