They intend ;to -farm on a more extensive  scale next season, and prove to the  Slocan people that something in addition to silver and lead can be raised  ' in this section. They also combined  fishiDg with their agricultural pursuits, and during the warm 'weather  shipped over $300 worth of fish, principally trout, to, Three Forks.  MINTS TO PROSPECTORS.  (Written specially for the Ledge by Howard  West As-eoc. R.S.M. (London )  * It has been mv aim and -intention  in writing these few articles.on minerals especially to prospectors to  stimulate if possible that thirst for  knowledge which always characterizes the man who has his whole heart-  in his work,, ho matter what it may  be, and, although, it" must be admitted that it is a long drop from the  mysteries of science to that of everyday prospecting. I trust I have in a  measure overcome this obstacle by  the adoption of the simplest language  which is compatible with the greatness and depth of the subject and by  seeking to explain only those essential  , parts -vyhich a man of but limited  education can readily understand and  digest.  If in consequencejrf the descriptions  which have been given from time to  time in the Ledge, but one of the  many industrious prospectors in our  midst is thereby enabled to make a  strike which he could not^have done  without the information so gained,  the mission which I had in view  when writing them will be fulfilled  and I shall feel more than repaid for  any little trouble', which I may have  been put to in their compilation.  Before concluding, however, I  should like to give a word or two of  advice, which, if the prospector is not  above accepting may at some time or  another prove useful.  Practical work and scientific knowledge must ever go hand in hand,  therefore never neglect an opportunity or improving your knowledge of  minerals or geology when it inay  come in-your way. Specimens of all  the minerals which have been here  described and many more besides  may be seen at any time at my office  here in town ; come up and examine  them at your leisure, it may be the  turning point in your career and give  you information.which you know not  how soon mav \e your fortune.  Don't try to prospect three or four  mountains in one day, remember the  smallest indications are worth looking after. Trail creek was prospected a dozen times before it was,  considered any good.  If you find anything which excites  ���your curiosity or which you do not  understand or cannot properly account  for bring it to town and have it examined, it wont cost 3'ou anything  and will add a pound or two at most  to your pack. It may be that you  will strike something in this way that  the world at large-knows not of.  ��� Make full use of any natural advantages which the country you are  prospecting in^ may- offer in the way  of open cuts, beds of creeks, out-crop:  ping rocks, change of formation,  uprooted -*trees, - displaced bouldersT:  etc., to examine the ground more  closeiyi  Don't be led like a flock of sheep  because one man happens to make a  strike in any particular locality ; the  country is larger than most people  imagine and the part at present un-  prospected, may yield more in the  future than all that at present being  worked.  Don't think that aspeck offree gold  necessarily means a gold mine, it is  often the case that specimen mines do  not even pay expenses whilst others  of lower grade bat more, uniform in  production pay millions in dividends.  Don't try to wildcat anybody, for  even if you succeed in your object  you arc doing an injustice to your  fellow prospectors and laying the  foundation for a compulsory detention  in one of Her Majesty's boarnding  houses.  Don't go back on your mining  camp, if you have a good opinion of  any part of the country stay with it  through thick and thin and when the  inevitable awakening of the investing public to the demands Of the  Province comes, jrou will be sure of  your share of the spoils.  Don't begrudge a few dollars spent  in assaying, it is one of the expenses  necessary to successful prospecting.'  Don't grumble at the assayer when  the results are rather lower than you  expected, but be a man and go out  determined to find something better  next time or, as the novelist has it,  perish in the attempt. The assayer  is your best friend, not ?your *mortal  enemy ; he can probably tell you a  great deal more about the rock than  yon know yourself. Your success  means his success; therefore he would  much rather give you a high assay  than a low one, if he could do so consistent with truth.  Don't try and delude yourself as to  the value of your claim by picking-  out a specimen piece for assay, and  then trying to make yourself believe  that the,whole of your ledge is of the  same kind, it has sent many a man  to the lunatic asylum trying to sell a  claim on these grounds, when the reaction has set in and he finds there is  not another piece like it in the whole  country; but learn -all' you possibly1  can about the real value of your  ledge.  Don't get melancholy over your  apparent want of success or envious  at the success of others, prospecting  is full of good chances and there are  treasures in Natures store house for  everyone who seeks carefully and  intelligently.;  ,, Don't hold more claims than you  can -.possibly attend to, one good claim  is worth ten^poor. oneis and1 only requires one-tenth the assessment work.  If you are convinced you have a  good claim stay with it, it will treble  its value when properly opened up.  ; Don't hold your property at an  absurdly high price to outsiders, this  does more to retard fie development  of the country than many other seemingly important things.  When you make a sale become a  church member at once, it will save  you many an anxious and may be  exciting time later on.  MINING NOTES.  Hfo-ppenLngre*    of    Interest   Among-   the  Treasure Vaults.  ' The Black Diamond, at Ainsworth,  will work this winter.  W. IL Potter is working,a claim at  the head of Spring creek.  Bob Williams has a deal on for his  interest in the Lucky Jini;  The recent rain has had a bad  effect upon the rawhiding of ore.  The Gibson, on the south fork of  Kaslo creek, has 20 tons ready for  shipment.  A Seattle company has two experts  in the Slocan looking upr desirable  investments.  Work will be commenced on the  Corinth when A.  C.  Behue returns f  from Spokane. j  ; Valentine is working the Little  Daisy, on Eight Mile creek.  The first car load of ore from Sandon was shipped from the Ruth mine  over the K. & S. Ey.  The Enterprise, on Ten Mile creek,  is progressing favorably, and winter  supplies are being taken in.  A chute of ore > has been struck in  the Skyline, at Ainsworth, that  shows 700 ounces of silver to the ton.  The owners of claims in the Slocan  are receiving their tax notices. The"  'tax on most of the properties is 50  cents.  Prospecting is over for the season  in the Slocan. Many prospectors will  spend the winter trapping at the foot  of the lake. ' .  -The shaft on the"Currie' is down 65  feet and drifting has commenced to  tap the ledge, an event that may.  occur next week.  Marcus Daly has purchased the  Winnipeg in Wellington camp. . It is  a gold and copper claim,- and the  price paid was $60,000.  Ten tons of ore from the Exchanged  a nd Ho wa rd Fractions are stored at  Slocan City.   It' will be shipped ; to  Pilot Bay within a few days;  ���' Senator'Ra'msdel, of:Montana, has  bonded the Copper King group on  White Grouse mountain, and will  commence work next spring.    -  Upwards of 2,000 sacks of ore are  ready for shipment at the Dardanelles, This property will be worked  as soon as the water is pumped out.  The Silver Key is a wet ore proposition on the north fork of Carpenter  creek. It will be worked this winter:  aud 100.0C0 shares of stock will be  sold at 10 cents on the dollar.  J. R. Jamieson and his partners  own a galena proposition on Canyon  creek, near the Snow creek divide  that is very promising. m Several  offers have been made to bond it, but.  the owners will develop it themselves.  Five outfits are working on Springer creek and will do so all winter.  The Exchange has four men, Howard  Fraction eight, Silver King No. 3  two, Two Friends two and the same  number at Tamarac.  The Ivanhoe camp had a narrow  escape from fire on Wednesday last,  and had it not been for the promptitude with which the emergency was  met by the boys under the efilcient  captancy of foreman J. W. Giliis ihey  would have been roofless for 0Het  night at least. The fire caught from  some shavirgs which a rat had deposited under the roof of the stove  pipe, but fortunately only about ten  feet of the roof was demolished.  s  S*:  ' r>  T~   "      '   -  '   '"' ���'!'.>/�����>  ,*   ��� .. ���*������;*$���  ���-���'���,.  .-:'W  ���'    X \  ,  "fsxif  m> ?:~j$  ��� '���'   -���-   ,'.���/��-  X  ���!  �� ��� --s-V'-r  .-.-..v'-'j?  ���' ^ M  :-    '* . ������"*.���*���$  *-'' ',*"'&  ���' - :VH  v.       ������ 7^,1  *    -   ���Si"  *  c    7\. ���">���  ���.. - ���;?  ':x# Third Year.  THE LEDGE.  MONTANA'S GitEAT MINE.  ! *'   i  The Anaconda and St. Lawrence  Mines were originally opened up as  silver mines.    The surface ore was  silver,   but as  the  company   went  deeper they found veins of copper ore  heavily sulphurated, carrying twenty  to thirty-five per cent, of silver to the  ton.    Marcus Daly, the present manager, induced Sena cor George Hearst  and James B. Haggin to go in with,  .him and purchase the Anaconda and  St. Lawrence Mines.   When��they had  "purchased  these,  they investigated  the surrounding coumry,  and as a  result purchased the Chambers'Syndicate   Mines,   adjoining   their  own  ground.    About four ' years ago, the  Ground Squirrel Mine, below the St.  Lawrence, was added to their holdings. . This last mine is said to be  the richest copper mine In the world.  ���In addition to the mines I have mentioned, the Anaconda Company own  the Mountain Consolidated, the High-  Ore, the Green Mountain, the Wake-  up-Jim, and the Modoc.   In addition  - to the mines, the Anaconda Company.  - owns much other valuable property,  '.among1'which- is the refining and  .smelting works att Anaconda.    This  represents an investment of about  ;' |9,C03,000. The plant at Anaconda  ,is admittedly the finest in the world.  The company practically owns" the  city of Anaconda, twenty-eight miles  from -Butte, City. It js one of the  , handsomest cicies in the West It  ��� was. built to order, and is handsomelv  laid out. It has well-paved streets,  electric r-treet railways, is lighted by  electricity, and its spacious streets are  lined with handsome buildings. It is  sometimes called "Marcus Daly's  "town," but it belongs to the Anaconda  Company, although Marcus Daly  holds it in the hollow of his hand. It  is only about a year since the redoubtable Daly tried to make Anaconda the capital of Montana, and he  nearly succeeded, too.  It, is owing to the overweening  ; energy of Marcus Daly that the Anaconda Company has practically paid  no dividends. All of the immense  output of the mines has been devoted  by Daly * to the acquisition of other  mines, to the erection of refineries  and smelting'plants, to the acquisition of railways, to the founding of  newspapers, arid to the building of  towns. But the stockholders, not  having the personal pleasure of ruling  Montana, have slightly- wearied of  this, and it is in consequence of their  desire for some ready money from  the mines thatt a orie-fourth interest  has been sold. It is said that with  the sale there goes an implied con  tract that Marcus Daly will now  devote himself to taking money out  of the mine instead of putting ii; back  into the ground.  The owners of the Anaconda include  James, B. Hag-gin, the Estate of  Senator Hearst, Lloyd Tevis, of Cali  fornia, and Marcus Daly, of Montana.  When the company was organized,  the holdings were divided as follows:  Senator George Hearst, 39 per cent.;  James B. Haggin, 26 per cent.; Marcus Daly,   25 per cent. ; and Lloyd  Tevis, 10 per cent. The organization  remained the same until the death of  Senator George Hearst, when James  B. Haggin acquired a controlling interest in the management.    Whether  this   was   by   actual   purchase,   or  whether ,Mrs.    Hearst  simply   put  enough stock in his name to'give him  the control,   is not known.   It is believed,    however,   that   the   latter  * hyhothesis is correct.    Mrs. Hearst is  currently reported still to own 39 per  cent, of this vast property, of which  one-fourth has been sold at a total  valuation of $30,030,000.  , The sale which has just been consummated is the result of negotiations  extending over a. period of six years-  Four different times the Rothschilds  have attempted to purchase the Anaconda mines.   Each time the Roths.  childs have refused to pay the price,  and each time the price has been  raised on'them.   Now they have purchased it on the recommendation of  Hamilton Smith, the famous mining  expert.    By this last deal the Rothschild syndicate has purchased one-  fourth of the company's stock.   The  stock is capitalized at 130,000.000, at  a par value of 825 for 120,000 shares.  The shares  sold to the Rothschild  s.yndicate were put at par.    On this  basis the value of the Anaconda mines  amounts to' about $30,000,000.    Their  one-fourth   interest  lias   cost   them  $7,500,000.    If they place the ' stock  on  the  London market   at $30,   of  which there seems to be no doubt,  they will make a profit of $1,500,000'  Mining Broker,  SANDON, B C  *?  x,  Application for Ligour  License  GK PALO  Sandon, B.

Dell Hughes and wife arrived from  Walla Walia recently with the intention of remaining" here.  A. M. Strode, president of the Mul-  lan Electric Light company, was" in  town last week after an absence of  several months on the north side.  Several new saloons have thrown  their doors open to the public recently. There are now eight in .Mullan  and the end is not yet. Two months  ago the water company was the only  thirst slaking institution in the camp.  i  J. W. Conrad and family from  Cataldo are counted among Mullan's  latest permanent arrivals. Mr.. Conrad is the manager for the Mullan  Electric Liglit: company. The resumption of work at the mines has  made a, radical improvement in the  business of the electric light company.  Corporal M. J. Conliff, of Company  G, Fourth United States infantry,  arrived in the town on Tuesday morn  ing for the purpose of drilling the  members of .the militia company re:  cently organized in Mullan. Many  of the boys are working in the minesj  so that they will be obliged to go  through the manual of arms in the  evening. They have a good building for the purpose, however, and  . will doubtless soon become proficient  in the use of their arms.  WARDNER.  Ed Clough returned on Tuesday  from Moscow, where he has been  for several weeks  Hacker & Lund will shortly enlarge  their present saloon accommodations  by taking in the next building adjoining them.  . P Hyde is putting up a room forty  feet long to accommodate his growing  trade. This will be used jrincipally  for storing hay and grain.  There are said to be about sixty  teams in daily use in Wardner and  vicinity. Anyone making the trip  from the Junction to Wardner will  readily believe this.  Jim Lyle, Tom Jenkins and Dan  McDonald went out on Pine creek  hunting a couple of days last week.  They secured one deer, a lynx and  some smaller game.  Billie Taylor, the barber, is putting  up a 24x14 feet addition to his shop in  the rear. A portion of this will be  partitioned off into two bath rooms,  which will be neatly and apropriately  furnished.  Owing to a delay in receipt of the  doors and windows for the new hos  pital, it will not be ready for business  quite as soon as was expected;. The  plastering has been hindered considerably by the cold weather.  B. Presley is erecting another  building opposite the American hotel  to be used as a barber shop.  WALLACE.  Judge Pott and wife, of Mullan,  were in the city Tuesday.  Alfred J. Dunn started to Pierce  City Friday to be gone several weeks.  John A. Finch came in from Trail  creek on Thursday.  Wm. Wolf, the well-known traveling salesman from Spokane, was in  the citv this week.  Rev. W. H. Selleck is engaged in  holding* revival services this week at  Gem with good prospects.  . J. K. Waite, deputy United States  marshal for Montana, was here this  week on official business.  President Elder Howard, of the M.  E. church south, will preach at the  Methodist church next Sunday.  The Oregon Railway and Navigation company commenced to handle  the dump cars from the Standard  mine on Thursday.  District Attorney C. W. Beale has  been quite ill from tonsilitis. He is  now able to sit up; but is still confined  to his room at the Carter house.  .

Miss Jennie Christopher;, who has  been visiting her sister Mrs. R. N.  Dunn, left Friday for her home in  Warrensburg, Mo.  Frederickson Bros, have put a  partition in their fruit store and made  other improvements to their place  which indicate prosperity and permanence.  Mrs. Joseph Richott is seriously ill  at the hospital in Missoula. Mr.  Richott was sent for and went Friday  to Missoula. The lady has been sick  a number of months.  W. M.

The  iirst bank to be established in New  Denver, or some other part of the  district will do an immense business.  The lack of banking facilities is felt  very much, and is of great disadvantage to all business men.  It is probably a fact that the devil  is not as E  pian in appearance as  he is painted.

THE CALIFS RSI A MILLIONAIRES.  It is , a romance of- millions���the  Miller-Lux contest.    Bat, at the same  time, it is another lesson to California  millionaires.   We have the record in  this state of the most desperate fights  tor fortunes that have ever occurred  in history.   Men may work and labor  for years for hard earned gold, only  to leave the sTiiell of it behind them  to tempt, the jackals^ of .foreign countries to tlie carrion.    The very name  of Californian  is  syonymous   with  Ophir,   Golconda���with  ^qld !. ��� The  traditions   of  1849   linger   in   the  memory of all the .ojgV.,wives from  New York to Belgrade.   The   "last?  .will and testament" has entirely lost  . its meaning.    Our courts are turned  too    frequently   into   a ^disordered  clearing-house, where there is a general   scramble for  among relations  whom- trie  testator never, heard of  during his, life.   In the early days,  a manYi word "was almost always as  good,as his bond.    Even' as late as  .1875 Maurice Dore came forward with  ;��� naif a million * of. dollars,' which he  said'the late W.. C Ralston, left with.  ,7 him on a speculation.   Hearst, Hag-  giri and Tevis conducted their vast  mining and ranch interests for years  ���under an open partnership which was  - unquestioning-    The tale of the old  .' Highland' Chief in';.Scotland,   who  1 loaned a hundred, pounds to a neigh-  , ,bor,  and ,. scorned a note of hand on  the ground that he would not loan  ���  the money if he didn't, think the  neighbor was honest,  is "thoroughly  characteristic of the golden age in  California..   And so it was that Henry  Miller and the late Charles Lux trusted each other implicity, with a faith  that neither ever had any reason to  question.     Both   upright,    steadfast  ;-business men, they, did,not even need  a book-keeping department.    They  married  sisters,   and   lived   happy  lives.    Finally Lux died   and was  mourned sincerely bv his old comrade  and partner,   Henry Miller.     Mrs.  Lux, the sister-in-law of Miller, urged  her husband, in making his will,   to  \ leave half his estate to his rela tives in  ��� Germany���relatives   that   were   in  humble  circumstances.   It may be  incidentally explained that Lux had  already settled a sum upon his brother Henry in San Jose,  providing a  ' fixed income of $200 a month for life  and for his heirs after death.   In his  ...will Mr.  Lux also made a special  request to his widow not to withdraw  her community property   from   tlie  firm of Miller & Lux.   -His. was a  natural request, for so vast; air estate,  consisting',' as it does,   of fifteen million acres, is not to be disturbed with  impunity.   For thirty years Lux and  Miller toiled and strove to accumulate  their fortune, and,  in all that time,  the two never kept an account between them.    Miller knew the Coast  bv   heart,   and   had   a   wonderful  capacity for lucky investments.   Lux  staid at home and ran the business  here, while'Miller traveled far and  wide with indefatigable energy,  going without sleep, and often exposed to the fury of. the wintry  elements. A generous man and a  kind one, he has a rugged sense of  right and justice. He feels keenly  the attempt on the part of the Ger  man heirs to destroy the magnificent  fortune which he and his old partner  worked so hard and long to build up.  Besides, if his partner trusted him, so  implicitly through life and in his last  will and testament, whv should this  horde of foreign heirs in'greedy thirst  for unearned gold, seek to jeopardize  Mr. Miller's own interests. However,  Mr. Miller himself is anxious for a  division. Over sixty years of age, he  wants peace and quiet. But,. nevertheless, he realizes the monstrous  injustice of the German-heirs endeavor to sacrifice the property at any  cost, ,so long as they get their several  pittances. ���San Francisco News Let:  ter.

GOOD THINGS.  Archbishop Trench was a victim of  absent-mindedness. Dining at home  one evening, he found fault with the  flavor of the soup. Next evening he  dined out at a large dinner party.  Forgetting for the moment that he  was not in his own house but a guest,  he observes across the table to Mrs.  Trench: "This soup is, my,dear,,  again a failure."  While traveling in a country  village in Northern England, Mr.  Blank left one of his shirts behind in  a small tavern. Upon finding his  loss,, he wrote at once to the chambermaid asking for its return. She  answered as follows: "Dear Sir:  Your letter came too late. I have  made your shirt into a shift, so now  youwijl have to shift for a shirt.  Your humble servant, Mary Jones. "  Dr. Belman a well-known Suffolk  doctor, had a great contempt for  homoepathy. An old lady who pinned  her faith to Hahnemann one day took  five globules by mistake for' three,  and her own doctor being absent,  D��\ Belman was sent for post-haste.  He came, looked grave, shook his  head, said if people would med,dle  with dangerous drugs they muse take  the consequences.. "But, madam,"  he added, "I will die with vou,"and  lifting the bottle of globules to his  mouth, he swallowed its entire contents.  President Lincoln was attracted to  Governor Tod, of Ohio, on first meet  ing him by, his name, and took an  early occasion to say:. "I never  could understand how you come to  spell your name with { only one d.  Now, I married a Todd, and she  spells her name with two* d's, and I  believe she knows how to spell.  What is your authority for using only  one?" "Well," drawled Governor  Tod, "my authority for it is in part  the fact that God spells His name with  only one d, and it seems I should be  satisfied if He is."   x  One cold, blustering morning in  December, 1864, the late General  Mahone's tent was pitched on a bleak  Viriginia hill side. He was indulging in a morning nap, when Uncle  Davy, his negro body-servant, tiptoed  in, and, stumbling over something,  knocked down the general's cot and  spilled him on the ground. Springing to his feet, the irate officer seized  a sword and gave chase to the flying  Davy. The darkey jumped a fence,  and feeling safe, turned back toward  JOI ff. GRAIAI & Co..
