 Volume VI.   No. 3.  NEW DENVER, B. C, OCTOBER 20, 1898.  Price, $2 00 Year  TR0UT LAKE TOWNS 1  The citizens of Trout Lake City and  mine owners and prospect holders of  that and adjoining- towns of the Trout  Lake and Lardeau mining- districts are  to be commended upon the excellent  pamphlet just issued, descriptive of the  mining" and other resources of that  . division. There is so much of general  interest in it, correctly stating-as it does  the relative possitions of the several  towns, the distance to them and how to  g-et there, that we quote below from it .-  TROUT LAKE CITY.  Few towns are possessed of greater  promise or of finer natural advantages  than Trout Lake City.   This thriving i  town from its location in the mining-  division of Trout Lake is bound to be  the headquarters for the various companies which will in the future operate  the rich gold and silver mines  which  have been discovered in   the district  during the past four or five years.   It  is located at the northern extremity of  Trout lake and   will command the supply trade of all the country'bounding  its shores, and which recent exploration  has demonstrated to be second to none  in British Columbia as regards the richness of its ore bodies.   It is connected  by trail and wagon   road with all  the  principal mines of the district.    Then,  too, Lardeau creek  empties into   the  lake on the eastern side of the town,  and a large share of the trade resulting  from the operation of the mines which  are dotted here and there on the mountains on either sides of the valley will  find its way to the merchants of Trout  Lake City."  . It is further expected that before  many months a line of railroad will be  constructed from tlie head of Kootenay  lake to Trout Lake City, and thence  to Arrowhead, with branch lines up  the north and south forks of Lardeau  creek to the rich mining- properties of  that neighborhood. And iu this event  all the ore from these mines would have j  to pass through Trout Lake City, making of this town a railroad centre and j  the chief distributing point for the district.  Already the initial step has been taken  towards solving the problem of transportation and' it will be only a few  weeks until a steamer is in the course  of construction to operate on the lake  and carry supplies to the several points  thereon nearest, and connected by trail  with the scene of mining operations.  To reach Trout Lake City from the  mainline of the C.P.R., cars will have to  be changed at Revelstoke and the train  running to Arrowhead boarded. Arrowhead is some 28 miles distant from  Revelstokeand is situated at the upper  end of Arrow lake. From this point a  short trip by water lands the traveller  at Thomson's Landing, whence a  stage line runs to Trout Lake City,  the whole journey occupying- a littie  over six hours and interesting throughout for the beauty and grandeur of the  mountain scenery through which the  route passes. At all points along the  journey the very best accommodation  is available, and when Trout Lake City  is reached, the choice of four hotels,  each equipped in first-class style, is  presented to the traveller, aud no matter which one of these lie selects for his  temporary home, his comfort will be  carefully "looked after.  After haying finally settled himself to  his satisfaction he  will  find  on inspection that the town  is possessed of four  stores in addition to the hotels mentioned, a saw mill, a post office, a telephone  service with   outside   points,  a school  house, a meat market, a printing offices,  barber   shop,   blacksmith  shop,  three  livery   stables, government  buildings, j  drug* store   and   assay   ollico.     If hej  decides on settling in the  district  he  will find that as  the townsite of Trout  Lake City has  been crown granted Ins  will be able to  procure a clear title  to  any lots which  he  may chance to purchase.    If he is fond of sport and would  fish or shoot   he  will lind'tins lake and  creeks   emptying'   into    it abundantly  stocked with the'speckled beauties, and  the  mountain  slopes .surrounding-  the  lake present the very best opportunities  for the use of the rifle.   Game  of every  description   abounds,   and  among the  different  varities   may  be  mentioned:  Caribou, mountain goat,  bear, wolves,  cougar, lynx, grouse aud duck :  in fact  to the practiced  sportsman  this part of  the district  presents innumerable advantages   for .the   indulgence   of    his  favorite pastime.  If he haslcome in with the intention  of investing in mining properties, or for  purposes of exploration,he will find that  this point is the very best one he could  select as his headquarters. It is centrally situated and from here he can  operate, in every direction. His position at this point commads the whole  lower hike section and the Lardo-  Duncan country. It is within two hours  ride of the north and south forks of  Lardeau creek, and is the terminus of  the stage line from Thomson's Landing. | blacksmith sin-  Last summer  some   wonderfully   rich I and  received  propertiesWere located within a very  short distance of Trout Lake City, and  just as soon as the season is sufficiently  advanced they will be worked, and it  is confidently"expected by their owners  that before snow flies next fall, they  will be shipping ore. These properties  are situated on Humphries, Glacier,  Five Mile, Canyon, and Haley creeks.  Taking all things into consideration,  then, it will not be'an exaggeration, in  view of the exceeding- richness of Trout  Dakeores, and the remarkable progress  that has been made during the past  year, that Trout Lake City will develop  into one of the largest "and liveliest  towns in West Kootenay.  FERGUSON'.  To reach the above town from the  main line the directions are the same  as those for reacliing Trout Lake City,  only, when the forks of the road, about  a mile from Trout Lake City, is reached the left branch is taken. After a  ride of four miles you will arrive at  what is believed by many to be the  coming Butte of British Columbia.  From its position at the junction of the  North Fork aud Lardeau cieek, Fergu  son is bound to command a large  patronage from the mines now being-  operated a few miles from its centre.  At a distance of a little over seven  miles the Silver Cup is in full operation  and the product of the mine passes  through the town on its way to the  Landing. Then, further on "up the  south fork, there are several good properties, extensively developed, which  will next fall be shipping their products  and employing large forces of men  Among these properties may be mentioned such .well-known names as the  Silver Cup, Bad Shot, Black , Prince,  Silver Chief and Lade Group. |  The town is possessed of all the necessaries for completelyemtfittingany prospectors who may decide on making" this  point their headquarters. It has four  good hotels, three general stores, two  livery stables, a good saw mill, and is  the headquarters for a large transportation company The mail arrives here  semi-weekly, and next summer the service will be increased to three times a  week.  No matter how large the demand for  building material may be Ferguson can  supply it, for it has one of the most completely equipped sawmills in the district. ' A large supply of good lumber  is on hand, and it. is expected that before many days the mill will commence  sawing, so as to provide, in case of  emergencies, lumber sufficient to sup- j  ply demands even larger than those ex-1  pected at the present time  service connects this place with the  interior and outside points. It is an  excellent place from which to prosecute  inquiries into the values of either Fish  Creek or Trout Lake ore bodies.  TEX  .MILE   CITV.  About six miles above Ferguson and  near the head of the South' Fork of  Lardeau creek is Ten Mile City This  place, although it is as yet in embryo,  is likely to prove quite as lively a point  as there is in the Trout Lake district,  from the fact that several rich prospects, the hope of that section, are  situated on the mountains surrounding  this little town. At present it is possessed of but one store, one hotel and a  livery stable. But as the pi'operties  before mentioned will be vigorously  developed this coining season, it is confidently expected by many fully competent'to judge, that Ten Mile City will  keep pace with the section of the country with which its interests are immediately identified. It will he connected  by wagon road with the main road to  Thomsons Landing as soon as the season is sufficiently advanced to permit of  the work being" done.  Comaplix and Eight  Mile Camp are  also towns of much promise.  JOTTINGS   FROM WHITEWATER.  Tenders are asked for putting in two  100-foot tunnels on properties iu the  Jackson basin by the Jackson Mines,  Ltd., and the Echo Mining Co.  There is an excellent opening here for  a good physician, providing of course  that'a hospital for the accommodation  of the miners would be erected, as it is  really a necessity in a camp like this  where so many miners are employed.  At the present time they have to go  either to Kaslo or Sandon, and there'is  a good quantity of kicking- in consequence.     __ ."   Ho    Hits    Keen    There.  third being retained by his partner, Mr.  John L. Retallack, and Major J. M.  Montgomery. Mr. Eaton is now opening  up the Madison group, one mile above  Sandon, which he says is only a prospect. Y"  In telling of the prosperity that has  come to that section he made a striking  contrast between the conditions when  he first went there and those existing  now.  "I have just come out of the Slocan,"  said he, "and the  mines are  producing  more than ever.   The , advance in   the  price of silver has made mines pay to  work which did not pay before.   The  silver-lead portion of the Kootenay country is producing a great deal more than  the gold portion; in  fact,  more money  will come out of that district  than will  come out of the Klondike this year. The  Payne is   shipping   $100,000 a  month, |  having shipped'a few dollars less than  $600,000 ;n the first six  months of this  year.   The Whitewater is putting in  a  new  mill.   On   the   Whitewater Deep  Mr. R. E. iBrown is  putting in  a new  compressor plant, and is starting a large  tunnel from the Kaslo creek level.    I  should  think it  would  strike ore at a  depth of 700 feet vertically below  the  present workings.   The Last Chance is  putting in a  new tram, which  strikes  the  railroad a mile and a half above  Sandon,  and has become a wonderful  producer.    Mr.  Brown is   building  up  the town of Whitewater, and has put up  a house of 16 rooms at the mine.    When  I went to see him the other day he asked me if I wanted to take a bath, saying  he had two bath rooms.   Why,  I  built  that trail to  Whitewater with my own  hands when  I had   only one shirt."���  Rossland Leader.  L0GAL TAILINGS  John L. Retallack is seriously ill with  typhoid fever at Spokane.  The Wakefield Mines will ship -probably 75 car loads of ore this winter.  Services will be held in the Methodist."  church next Sunday at 11 a.m. and 7:15 j  p.m. Everbody welcome.  R. N. Powell.  Work on the Fisher Maiden, Four  Mile, was resumed last week. Preparations are being made for an early shipment.  Twelve inches of clean galena ore has  has been encountered on the  situated on the south fork  creek.  "16tol,"  of   Kaslo  Mils'INI*   PROSPECTS.  A great deal has been said about the  maladminstrationof affairs in Klondike,  much of which has been branded as  false and much has not. We quote from  a letter just received from a former New  Denverite who has been in the Klondike  and ought to know what he is talking  about.    Says he :  ���'The Klondike is not all gold as some  people would have us believe. The  government want all a man can make.  Such robbery! It is a. disgrace to  Canada. They all have their hand out  for their share of the steal. I am  ashamed to let people know that 1 am a  Canadian after what I saw in that  country."  Good    For   Twenty   Years.  This town is most advantageously  located, not only as regards its natural  advantages, but from'the fact that it  is in the very heart of the mines located  on the Lardeau river audits tributaries.  Everything- goes to indicate that tlie  coining season will be one of exceptional'activity in mining circles, and  the citizens and business men of the  town are making the most complete  preparations to accommodate the rush  of people expected in there when, the  season is sufficiently advanced. It is  also expected that a greater increase in  the sales of mining properties this season will result from the development  operations which have taken place during- last fall and winter, and if such  expectations culminate in realities, then  Ferguson will enjoy an enviable position'among the mining towns of West  Kootenay.  THOMSONS   LANDING.  Thomsons Landing is situated at the  head of navigation on the Northeast  Arm of Upper Arrow hike, and it is at  this point, that transhipment of freight  and baggage; for Trout Lake City, Ferguson aud Ven Mile City takes' place.  This town is a most important ones, from  tlie fact that in addition to its'being* at  the,head of navigation on the Arm, and  therefore the point at which all freight  is transferred for .shipment to the interior of the district, ami from the fact  that sill ore from the mines on Lardeau  ereisk and Trout Lake will bo hauled  there prior to shipment, it is also important because it will to a great extent  Iks the centre of supply for the Fish  (..'reek district. Up Fish Creek many  valuable prospects have boon discovered, suiel as the result of late develop-  mi'.nt; operations have exceeded the  ex peseta tions of persons holding* property in this district, it goes without  saying* that this cresek will receive; a  considerable* share of attention from the  many moneyed inisn who ares expee-tesd  in to look ovesr properties in this ami  ne'.ig'hboring districts during* the com ing  season  Thomsons Laneling is possessed of a  couple of completely equipped hotels,  and it is pretty safe to s;iy that no-  wheiein the country will the comfort  of travellers be more sedulously looked  after than at cither one of these hotels.  It is the; headquartesrs for the stage line  and a strong f.rsmsporfation company,  .-Hid has a gvneral .store,   post offices and  J. B Tyrrell, Dominion Government  surveyor, has returned from the north.  He says his report to the Government  upon the Yukon country will be very  favorable. He argues that there is no  mother lo-^e, as is popularly supposed,  in the Yukon country. Ages ago the  country was full ofgold-bearingquartz.  The gold, in the course of centuries,  from Various causes has been separated  from the rock and concentrated in the  creeks and valleys. There in no quartz  of any value in" the country now he  thinks. The Yukon is good for 20  years to come, and the next year will  see twice the amount of gold recovered  that has come out this season.  Four   Thousand    Ounces   Silver.  In stripping the upper vein on the  Sligo Fraction, one of the claims in the  Capella group, on Goat mountain, about  a mile up from the New Denver Siding,  A. Thompson ran into a nine-inch  streak of fine decomposed sulphide ore  showing shades of blue and green carbonates of copper. A small hanelful  was taken out ami handed to Mr. Mc-  Naught, of Silverton, for assay, who  sent'up the reply: "The fine stuff you  sesnt up wesnt .1,100 oz. silver." Feirinesr  assays have given 800, 415, 1,4'-'J and  3,100 ozs.           Marriage    l-'elieity.  Indications are that the bulk of the  capital coming into Kootenay for the  next   year   will  be   American.     The  American    mining   man    understands  Kootenay   properties    and    Kootenay  methods in a way, that the Englishman  don't.   The average British capitalist  who comes out here to go into mining  expects to pick up War Eagle's and Le  Roi's on every street corner.   He wants  a dividend paying mine, for which he is  prepared to pay a quarter or half a  million, ignoring the fact that he could'  take a few   likely   prospects and in  a  short time convert them  into profitable  shippers for less than a quarter of the  amount.    The shrewd American, however, knows the ropes, buys claims for  a few thousand dollars,  throws some  development   work   into   them,    and  stands good chances of quadrupling his  investment the next time an English  investor comes along.  There is no reason why our own  prospectors and claim owners should  not make this profit themselves, as  many of them have. The man who has  one good claim and puts a couple of  years"intelligent hard work into it has  better chances of making his pile than  the prospector who ties himself up |  with half a dozen prospects which  keeps his nose to the ground doing assessment work. Under the British Columbia laws claims are big enough to  satisfy everybody. So many hundred  claims are "now staked in' Kootenay  that only the best of them have a  chance to" sell at all, and those which  are opened up on common sense principles, and not merely by a few gopher  holes are the ones that will fetch the  best prices.  The Condor group, lately bonded by  the Northwest Syndicate is showing up  well with-work. The property is being  surveyed.  The ore shipments from Sandon last  week amounted to 558 tons, as follows:  Payne 330, Slocan Star 1*20, Ruth 68.  Last Chance 40.  The Blue Bird, lately purchased by  Messrs. McDonald fend Corbin, is showing up well with development Stoping  was commenced'last week.  Sir William Van Horn and staff passed  down the lake the past week, which  accounts for the rapid rise and fall of  this beautiful body of water.  The   .Stove   Was   Loaded.  TheElkton Record reports that a man  named Rouse married a girl named Nix-  corn, in Missouri, and now his wife is  bringing a suit for elivorce. She alleges  that it was hard enough to have the  papers anm-iunee the wedding- as the  Nixcoui-Kouse nuptials, but it is more  than she can bear tei have her husband  insist on naming her son Xixcoine A.  Rouse.    That's a parallel case with one  J. P. Paxton aud Neil Beaton, while  doing assessment work on the Editor  mineral claim, in Ymir district, had a  very narrow escape from sudden death.  Near their camp they found a sheet iron  stove and used it. After starting the  lire Beaton opening tiie enel door discovered several sticks of dynamite in a I  burning paper. Me hastily threw the I  parcel as far down the; hill as he could !  an el ran in the opposite direction. Pax-  ton, who was in the tent, saw that part!  of the pruiscisdings" ami crawling undesr'  the tent side followed Beaton. They  had not gone far when a terrillic explosion occurreel which made a hole about  four feet deep in the soil anel stripped I  the shrubbery of leaves anel bark lorj  several feet around. IJael the esxplosion j  occurred when the explosive was in the \  oven both of them would have been in-1  stantly killed. Beaton, who has been1  mining 2u years, said he never had so  narrow an escape. L. S. Lyon, the thirel j  partner, had gone for water to a spring :  and was in no danger. ;  The Silver mountain wagon road is  the all absorbing topic of conversation  now. More than talk is necessary to  build it or even to start the thing moving-  Nine men are employed on the Essex  group, above Silverton, and the development work is putting this property  in the front ranks of the big Four Mile  ore producers.  T. G. Proctor.-presumably acting for  ! the   Hall   smelter,  last  week   paid to  Archie and  Joe Fletcher ��1,500 for a  lime quarry, on the shores of Kootenay  lake, opposite Kaslo.  Operations on the Congo group,where  the big gold strike was made on Red  mountain, have been suspended for the  season. Preparations have not been  made for winter work.  An 1Sx24 cabin has been erected on  the Lost Tiger. Another is going- up  on the Eclipse, the Marion, Mowich,  Anglo-Saxon, Marrimac and the other  properties that are to push work this  winter.  A big strike was made lately on the  Tsis, in the Lucky Jim neighborhood,  Bear lake, consisting of three feet of  clejan ore. W. S." Drewry, Hugh  Fletcher, Gust Botcher, Bob' Williams  and the Black Bros, own the Isis group.  W. J. Kirkwood returned this week  from the Peace River country where he  ���spent the summer Mr. Kirkwood was  not over successful in his efforts to find  the yellow stuff, but says he is going  back in the spring* to prosecute his  search from where he left off.  The Bosun is making* regular ship-  mem ts of 20 tons. The property is  developing satisfactorily in every sense,  and more men are beung added to the  working force. Sixty tons have been  shipped so far this month and this will  be increased to 120 tons for the month.  There is no doubt that the Government will appropriate funds for the  completion of the,Springer crcesk road,  in whiesh case;, when the roael is built,  the mining interests in that section  will be; worked with renewed vigor and  Slocan City will feed the; g-ood e-ffescts  Of it.  towns from Nelson this way, and of  them all the representative had selected  New Denver as the one town in which  to make investments, and he will place  what capital he has to invest into New  Denver realty.  Revelstoke will have a new saw mill  that will be in operation early in the  spring. It will be a one circular mill of  a daily capacity of from 25 to 35 thousand feet and will have planer and all  other finishing appliances for turning  out lumber of all kinds needed in the  building market.  It is reported from Ottawa that Major  Walsh has recommended in his report  an entire abandonment of the royalty  in the Yukon and also that one-half of  the Yukon Council be elected, instead  of all being appointed as at present.  The Government is hot likely to concede the former but it is more than  probable that the Yukon Bill will be  amended this session, making half of  the Council elective.  Chas. F. Nelson returned from Calgary Monday, after spending two  months there. He reports the old  prairie town greatly improved in every  way, and it is fast "forging ahead since  theC.P.R. has made it a division town.  But with all the improvements and  promising* indications for business elsewhere Charlie is well satisfied to stay  with New Denver and share in its  bright and promising future.  The first and only apple grown in the  Slocan was carefully plucked by C. W.  Aylwin a few days ago. Tt grew on one  of the young trees planted by him last  year. This' historical apple, which has  no connection with the disreputable  apple which grew long* time ago, will be  carefully preserved, "in alcohol, and  placed in the honorable company of  such articles as Eli Carpenters-pick and  rifle, a piece of the first cabin erected  in this camp, the pioneer grindstone,  and subscription list having the original  signatures of the pilgrim"fathers who  came up the Slocan river in 1891..  ���R-assi^vxn  mtntxg  news.  in Oregon City.

TEUKSDAF,-OCTOBER 20. 1898.  PUSH   DEVELOPMEXT   wokk.  Unless all indications fail the Slocan  will experience a great influx  of capital with the opening of next  spring-, and the wise thing for claim  holders to do is to put in the winter  on such properties as have a promising showing, so   that they   can  be  turned off at a good figure.     Each  and every one of  the  Slocan lake  towns have good properties behind  them.     Some  are   developed   into  shipping mines,'  others,   not  so far  advanced,   can only be classed as  prospects, hut it makes little difference just now how they are classed,  the fact is that all will  soon be shippers on an extensive scale,   and the  towns that have been in a state of  collapse for the past year from the  effects of the boom,  will be revived  and business will proceed on a more  extensive and firmer basis.    The outlook is indeed bright.     The upward  tendency of business has been noticeable for   some   months.     In   some  localities, and especially Slocan City,  the revival has been wretchedly slow  but it is now being felt and a better  spirit pervades the business and mining circles.     The   gold,   silver and  copper properties tributary to it are  being slowly.developed, and in every  instance the showing is most satisfactory.    All that is needed is to attract  moneyed meii to this locality,   and  the putting in operation one or two of  the big Springer   or  Lemon creek,  properties.   This might require some  months, owing to the tardiness experienced in getting wagon roads to  those localities, but that section will  not long remain inactive.   New Denver and Silverton are somewhat more  fortunate than Slocan City,   though  both   have   suffered some from the  effects of the general collapse in the  mining  business.     The   rich   Four  Mile properties have contributed regularly to the business institutions of  Silverton and strengthened the general confidence of its citizens.   The  coming winter promises to see scenes  of great activity there.    New Denver  has suffered the least of any of the  lake towns and is forging ahead at a  rapid rate.    The fact that it has and  ever will be the banking centre and  government seat, gives it a standing  that can never be shaken.     In addition to this it has shipping mines and  developing properties close at hand  that ensure its permanent prosperity.  With the future so promising, the  policy of  every  holder   of mineral  property should be to push development   work   without   ceasing,   and  bring their properties to that stage of  development   where   expert buyers  can see them and buy them.  ant it was that the people of Canada,  and especially those of this province,  should worship at the shrine of  ' 'patriotism," and contribute tithes to  support this false god set up in the  land by that illustrious American, Sir  William. Speaking* of this great  American president of the Canadian  railroad, and referring to his hugh  patriotic heart and how it bubbles  over, the Tribune of Nelson says  some good things:  "Sir William  has a  habit of confusing the interests of the railway  company, with the   interests of the  people of the dominion,  and appears  to be under the  impression that so  long as the interests of the railway  | company are conserved the patriotism  j of the people of Canada should pre-  iveiit them from  making any com-  I plaint.   One evening   of last week  i Sir William was tendered a banquet  I by the   Winnipeg   board   of trade,  | when  he undertook to make some  i capital for his company.     He, called  j upon all Canadians to keep the trade  of southern British Columbia for Canada, which is another  way of saying  for  the  Canadian   Pacific Railway  Company.    This remark paved the  way for a reference to the Boundary  creek railway question.   Sir William  then informed  his entertainers that  the Corbin railway systems had been  turned over to the Great Norf hern  Railway Company, and that the new  owners would be at. Ottawa next session for the purpose   of securing a  charter for the Kettle river railroad.  The president of the C. P. R.   which  desires to  perpetuate   its monopoly  over the whole of British Columbia,  then declared that it will be a national shame if the federal government  allows a railway company, devoid of  patriotism, to give Boundary Creek a  railway service free of charge, for  which the patriotic Canadian Pacific  is charging several millions of dollar's.  It is safe to say that Sir William Van  Home would have some difficulty in  convincing the people of Boundary  creek that patriotism  requires them  to subordinate the interests ot their  promising   district to    those   of his  state-aided   railway   company,   yet  that is exactly the argument he   is  using."   With the building up of New Denver, and the erection of so mans'' substantial frame buildings, it is the  most unwise policy���penny wise  pound foolish���for, our citizens to rest  until there is erected a fire hall, supplied with all the apparatus for fire  fighting. One good blaze, helped by  a strong wind, would wipe out most  of the town of New Denver before  you could say jack pot.  The matter should not be allowed  to rest at agitation. It must be kept  prominently before the public mind  and brought to the notice of the  authorities at Victoria by petition or  representative sent from here. The  cost ot the road would not be great,  but it would be of inestimable value  when built It would lessen the  freight charges on ore shipped out  and supplies taken in more than two-  thirds, besides opening a section unexcelled in richness in the Slocan.  ' 'A white sailor hat with wings," is  the way a foreign paper describes  the traveling costume worn by a  bride of Jamaica. The dear loving  thing would not go far dressed in that  style of gown out here.  WHITE    ST.AVKKY.  WAGON ROAD UP SILVER MOUNTAIN  With the extensive development  of the properties on Silver mountain,  the need of a wagon road up its  northwestern slope is becoming more  apparent, and already the question  is being agitated by the mine owners  and our citizens generally.  The late strikes made in this locality have demonstrated that there is  mineral wealth enough in Silver  mountain, when the properties are  properly developed and shipping commences, to support a city of one  hundred times the population of New  Denver. It is no idle dream about  the wealth deposited in this mountain. It is there and enough has  already been clone to show it up in  sufficient quantities to warrant the  citizens of New Denver, and the Provincial Government, too, in lending  every aid possible to the efforts of the  owners of properties there, towards  building a wagon road up the mountain, starting from the New Denver-  Three Forks road at some convenient  point near the Mountain Chief.  A wagon road will have to be built  to these mines before the ore can be  taken out and shipped as conveniently and cheaply as from other localities. At present the California mine  is paying an exhorbitant figure for  having its ore packed to the wharf.  The trail is a hard one and the packing made difficult. The same com  plaint can be made by the owners of  business pay we would rather throw adjoining claims that are of such  our press into the hike and chop wood : great promise, and as the permanency  for a living than advertise any white'of the ore bodies has been demon-  slave shop.

By buying their  goods cheaper than other retail merchants, and the employment of white  slaves, they are enabled to ship goods  all over the Dominion. People save  a little in many cases by dealing  with them but in the end such a  course must be disastrous. In this  Province wages are higher, and  goods dearer than in any other part  of Canada. If people earning high  .wages buy all or most of their goods  from these big cheap white slave  shops, we, in B.C., will have to come  down to the level of things in the  east. If we want to keep even with  them goods must be sold cheaper and  $3 a week clerks employed. All  other labor will have to conform to  the circumstances and God help - a  country when it is filled with white  slaves like the great stores of Toronto employ. If every merchant  paid the same for his goods, and a  law was passed making a certain  standard for wages the departmental  store would become obsolete and the  country as a whole more prosperous.  auk of Montreal  Established  181?.

Stories  oFtfrie.war  Nobody would recognize Private Hansen���pretty Gust, they used to call him,  because he had such a pink and white  complexion���in the blonde-bearded hero,  whose brick colored skin has lately lost  some of its fiery redness* in' hospital  quarters. Private Hansen has changed  a good deal. He has lost about 55  pounds of weight to begin with, and  there is an expression in his eyes that  speaks eloquently oi' some fearfully hard  experience in the Santiago campaign.  There is a nervous, jerky something  about the man that wasn't there eight  or nine months ago. Now lie starts apprehensively v, hen the guns of the guard  are grounded. Then he would not have  been perturbed had an earthquake occurred in his vicinity. The man looked at  me stolidly, after the manner of his  kind, when I asked him what he knew  about the fighting over yonder, but he  had a story to tell in broken English  that differs only in detail from those told  by Ids comrades about tlie slaughter at  San Juan.  "Ven es ban commancet shoot," said  Private Hansen, "aye ban 'fraid es von  of dis har Krag-Jorgensen bulet younta  etraik ma.

There are all sorts of contrasts in the  regular army. Cheek by jowl with a  man who never knew whether the earth  was round or square, and who cares not  a jot about the matter, one finds young  men educated in the universities east  nnd went, seeking commissions by the  route of practical experience. I ran  across one of these chaps a day or two  ago. He has earned his commission, too,  if three months' hard fever on top of  three days' hard fighting entitle a man  to consideration. I suppose Private  Fred Gerlach could pass all his examinations to-morrow if called upon to do so.  He is a "gentleman ranker," a son of  Captain Gerlach of the Third,; and "a  man wid eyes in th' fhront av him," as  Red McDonnell puts it.  Young Gerlach belongs to Troop K,  Sixth Cavalry, and he fought all through  the Santiago campaign. A more modest  soldier need not be sought in Uncle  Sam's army.    He  went through all the  a flash and somethin' hits me all over at  onct. My right hand man gives a queer  sort of a yelp an' goes down head first.

Any one who has known what it is to  woit day after day in some out-of-the-  world nook for letters which Were all the  time safely reposing in some neglected  coroner of a sleepy post office can appreciate the story that is told of Lord  Wolseley by Mr. Nourse, who was with  Her Majesty's forces through tlie Soudan  campaign.  At Korti Nourse went into the post  office to look after some letters. The  postmaster was a native and not mucli  used to handwriting. He made a superficial examination of a big pile of letters,  and while he was looking them over a  man with nothing to designate bis rank  came into the office. He took in the  situation at a glance.  "Let's clear this thing out," he said.  They jumped on the counter and proceeded to "clear it out" by first bundling  out the postmaster. Then they began  a careful examination of the post office  and found it congested with mail for the  army. They searched every nook and  cranny, throwing the letters for each  regiment into a different pile, and heaping up all the newspapers in the centre  of the room. Then they went'through  each pile and separated it into companies. Before night every letter was in  camp and distributed and the next day  Ihe papers were out.  Nourse did not know the name of his  companion in the benevolent deed, and  when he asked the answer was, "They  call me Charlie."  Some time after Nourse found it necessary to see the commandant, and, sitting  under the tent to which he had been  directed, he saw his companion of the  post office.  "Hello, Charlie?" he said, "I'm looking for the Commandant. Where shall  I find him?"  "Well,"' said Charlie, "you won't  have to look far. I'm the commandant.  Come inside and have a bit to eat and  drink."  It was Lord Wolseley.���The Buffalo  Inquirer.  THE    PSALM.

" 'Tis a haythenlantmidge that same,"  remarked "Red" McConnell, who had  been listening with an agonized expression of countenance to Private Hansen's  remarks*.

"Ay hay ban , yust so good soldier es  you hay ban, ay tank sib," responded  Private Hansen, with some show of indignation, and threw a clod of dirt at  his fiery-headed traducer to emphasize  his opinion, but the effort was rather  more than he had bargained for, and he  curled up in the sun to sleep.  " 'Tis the solemn trut' the man's  tellin'," continued McConnell, reflectively, "fer th' sowl av me, I cannot onder-  sthand thim Shwade min at all.

The Sixth  Cavalry did business at San Juan, and  did it up brown, according to thearticles  of war. Gerlach went where his troop  went, yellow skinned, big-eyed, ready to  d��-op dead when the last shot had been  fired, but not until then. When I saw  him tottering around the post a couple  of days ago he looked like a ghost of  his former self, but he told me, in a  voice that sounded sepulchral by contrast with the one he owned a year ago,  that in a week or two he would be as  good as ever.  "All the troops fought well down  there," said Private Gerlach. "There  were mistakes made in some instances,  but in no case that I know of did a  soldier wearing tlie uniform of the United States do anything of which he has  need to be ashamed. L found out for a  certainty that which I had previous  believed to be true, viz., that to get the  best out of your men you must show  them the enemy. In this matter the  Spaniards had all the best of it, using  smokeless powder against our cloud producing mixture. They could see us all  the time, and we could not see them  more than a third of the time. Just the  same, our fellows had the stuff in them  that overcomes disadvantages, and I  believe if given the word, they would  have taken Santiago with baseball bats.  Did I say I believed they would? I  should have said 1 know they would.  "Do you know what the sort of feeling  is that comes over a man when lie has  waited days and days for orders to move  up���when every nerve in his body is  screwed to the highest possible tension,  ancl to top off everything, there is a  touch of fever in his bones? Well, it is  a feeling that would prompt him to  charge tiie whole, Spanish army single  handed. Our fellows in the trenches  out there didn't care a continental for  expediency. From their point of view  anything on earth, even a fight to the  death, would have been better than  waiting, wet and miserable, for orders to  advance. I knew what the temper of  the men was, and that is why I say that  if the order had come to advance on  Santiago with clubbed rifles they would  have yelled with delight, If course, the  officers know  what they  are doing, and  4  i  i-  4  ���e Palace Gafe,  IN SAftt>oH  <s*^<s*-<s--<s>iS>  Eastern  Oyster=*,   Tender  Chickens   and    everything*  4  4  4 the   Market   affords in  the  4 ~  4 wav of delicious and ,  t  4~  4 at  palatable food can be found  t  Ths Palace  hunger torments their inter-  4    Strangers and others are  4      : :  4 requested to call on us when  4 ~~  4  4 nal anatomy.

Trooper Fred Poe, of Grigsby's cavalry,  Troop F, sat on the edge of the bank  whittling away at a Mauser cartridge  case, which by an ingenious process bade  fair to become in due time a pocket  toothpick holder. A man lay asleep  beside him, and whenever a fly lit on  the man Poe would brush it off, and go  on whittling. When I asked Poe for a  yarn about the war he owned up promptly that he had never traveled further  than Chickamauga, but indicating the  sleeping man, remarked that there was  a story in him worth hearing. After a  time the sleeper yawned a time or two,  cursed the flies genially and rolled over  on one elbow. Then for the first time I  noticed that he was shy an ear, that one  eye had collapsed, and that his face bore  scars such as might have been inflicted  by repeated applications of a red hot  iron.  "He's McPherson of Rooseveldt's outfit," said l'oe, "and he got hurt down  yonder with a shell bursting about three  or four yards from his head."  "What are you making, Fred ?" inquired the invalid, yawning again and  kicking at the turf lazily.  "Toothpick," responded Trooper Poe,  laconically.  ������Gal ?"  "Yep."  "Glad I hain't got one," went on the  injured trooper, emphatically. "El" I  had, d'you 'spose I'd cut much ice with  her when I git back to Taylor's Crick?  Reckon-I'd get the dirty shake, pard."  "You must have had a close call, McPherson," I ventured.  "Kinder," responded the cowpuneher.  "Feller ez fired thet shell orter hev a  medal. I'd decorate him elegant if I'd  the ghost of a chance. A free pass  through the golden gate hain't none too  good for thet feller, you kin bet your  life. A man's got to hev the luck of all  outdoors when he gits punched with a  shell in nine places and comes out with  a good appetite."  "Tell how the thing happened."  "Eh?

The most imaginative writer of fiction  seems unable to conjure up any vision  of .vealth, however dazzling-, which is  not excelled by fact; and- if any daring-  novelist were to weave into a story the  facts which have just come to our  knowledge from an unimpeachable  source, he would be scouted as a dream,  er of impossible dreams.  But let us tell the story in the words  of a California correspondent:���  A miner of the name of Wm. Rogers,  who has just died here, claimed before  his death to have discovered an Eldorado richer than any in history or fiction, and his story is supported by a  sackful of g-olden "nuggets' which'the  man dragged for   hundreds of wearv  OCT *r  miles.  This is the story as I heard it from  his lips : In 1890' Rogers formed one  of a party of four who went prospecting- for gold in the North-West���some  years before the Klondike, disclosed its  treasures.  They took along- with .them a wagon,  drawn by mules, with a full equipment  of tools, guns, ammunition, and pro  visions,   and   set out   on   their  and. in fact, even" line of business, he  adds/ is owned by stock companies, one  interwoven with the other.  G-. A. Pounder, of .Seattle, says the only  chanch for Americans lies in the establishment of. a new town, such as Pearl  City. The principal drawback to the  progress of Honolulu is the reason that  the whole island is oAvned by a few men.  Commercially, the town is very much  overrated. The Chinese do most of the  retail business. Americans can not hope  to compete with them.  Gold lias been found in all the eastern  States, but in quantities so small that it  would not pay to work the deposits.  Across the line in Nova Scotia there are  well known gold-bearing- deposits which  have been worked ������successfully for a  number of years, aiid there is a steady  production' in that province, chiefly  from small, rich mines. Gold has also  been found in the  Province of Quebec.  Sons  -DEALERS IN  H. H.

"Speaking of land crabs," said Ser-  geat Major Young, "they very nearly  frightened the wits out of meat Baiquiri,  and, come to think of it, there were  others who didn't like their looks. AVe  landed at Baiquiri that first night, companies A and B, and a part of Company  PI had only dog tents for shelter, and  after we got them'up there wasn't much  to do except throw out a picket and then  turn in.

The trees are different, the shrubs are different; in fact,  everything is different from what a  man's used to at home. Well, my tent  mate and I crawled into our blankets  and tried to sleep. He succeeded and I  didn't���at least not for a long time. I  was lying there watching the moon come  up through a crack in the canvas, when  suddenly I felt something tug at the  bottom of my blanket. I peered over  my toes trying to locate the joker, at the  same time filled with awful reflections  on centipedes, tarantulas, nigger killers  and other deadly things. At first I  could see nothing, but as the moon rose  a little higher and its dim light shone  through the tent, 1 became conscious of  two hideous-looking arms with oneer-  ous'hands at the end of them, waving  backwark and forward just inside the  Opening.  "You know what a man's imagination  will do, given a pair of llesliless sinus  and immense paws to work on. .Why, I  saw a death's head with grinning jaws,  wagging prophetically between those  waving anus.

There it perched and wig-wagged sit me some more.  At that instant I found my tongue, and  the yell 1 gave brought my tent mate to  his knees with a knife in his teeth and j  an army revolver in esich fist.

Our asinine contemporary of the Midnight Sun, strikes  pay dirt  whe-i  he  says of Judge McGuire:   "He had the  respect of the bar and the confidence of  the people."  Words cannot express our  contempt  for   the  Midnight Sun,   the  subsidized organ of the govt., tlie slave  of    monopolies,     the   mouthpiece    of  tyranny.   The editor is a poor, weak,  red-eyed    creature,    with    a   quensy  stomach for our virile brands of whiskey  and a sneaking regard  for cigarettes'  We ourselves have seen him gag at a  strong pipe, and as for chewing tobacco,  he idbes it so   half-heartedly   that  he  swallows the juice.    He is ahvays complaining- of Red Mike's table d'hote, and  says that salt pork makes him bilUous.  His greatest 'dissipation is to wear a  clean shirt,   and  as   for cards he will  never venture beyond casino  and old  maid.  It is rumored that he plays "authors"  with his one compositor, drinks tea and  likes oats.  When we came to this God-forsaken  country the very inhospitality of the  climate provoked all our'fighting; qualities at once. We developed all those  manly qualities which have made us a  prime favorite at the saloon, the dance  hall and poker table. We have never  failed to bluff on a four flush, even if it  took the Washington press. AVe have  put more whiskey down than any two  men in Dawson. We have tried to put  ourselves in touch with the people, also  we think that it may be said of us, also,  that we have "the respect of the bar  (Red Mike's) and the confidence of the  people." When we came to Dawson  the first question we asked w.-is, "Is  then; a government here?" Thev told  us, "Yes."  "Then," said wis. "we're agin it."  Here is where our unfettered proletarian son! showed itself at the first jump.  Such being our manly code, it is not  surprising tiiat we didn't cotton to the  idiot who edits the, Midnight Sun. It is  surprising,'however, to find tlie aforesaid idiot on the same side of the fence  with us with respect to Judge McGuire.  who is to leave us soon for the effete  east. Judge McGuire is an honest  judge. He is not looking for a'rake-off  and in a cold cold country he, lists given  us what .Mr. Hardy' calls "warm  justice." The Judge, we may remark,  is a man with a big M. We have seen  the .lodge take his liquor, and he does  it in a judicial and appreciative way,  something slow coins sure, but effective.  Fhe Judge is near the heart of the peo-  stnd  we know that  uid mack broadcloth  sacrifices to the dignity  ("���nnd-byc.   Judge.

For three months they had no luck  whatever, aud had begun to despair of  success, when they came across gold-  bearing rock, which was too poor, however, to work;  From this period they began to experience such a mixture of good and  bad fortune as has rarely, if ever, fallen  to the lot of man. Their mules died,  and the miners had to abandon their  wagon and the bulk of their tools and  provisions. Laden with as much as  they could cany, thej7' prosecuted their  search on foot, over high mountains,  through deep ravines, and across  treacherous marshes.  When their supply of food Avas exhausted and they were almost dead  from constant fatigue' and exposure,  they struck the lanaua river, and with  it the gold they had so lon��- sought.  Here they camped, and while one  member of the party hunted moose and  cariboo to keep body and soul together,  the remaining three panned out gold  nuggets witli such effect that within  three weeks, to use Rogers' words, they  had got enough ��� gold to "fill a full-  sized whiskey barrel"���much more, in  fact, than their combind strength could  move-  But, meanwhile, though they had in  three weeks won sufficeiit gold to make  them all rich men for life, they were  starving; so they buried their gold and  wandered on in search of food.  Within a few" days they reached such  a treasure-house of gold" as man's eyes  had probably never seen. The gold was  lying in huge nuggets, heavier than  any of them could lift. Many of the  nuggets weighed 200 pounds, and each  of them, as it was almost pure gold,  represented a value ot at least ��1.0,000.  But the men were dying of starvation, and a hundred such nugjrets could  not procure them a loaf of bread. Louis  Cavanaugh was the first to fall and  die. They nursed him for a-few days,  and when' he died he was buried under  a pile of "rock of gold," the most costly  tomb that ever "covered a man's remains.  "To carry away the gold that was  simply lying exposed on the surface  at that one spot, the edge of a creek,  would take 50 wagons and hundreds of  horses," Rogers declared, as he lay on  his death-bed.  The three survivors wandered hundreds of miles in the hope of meeting-  some Alaskan Indians who would help  them to transport the gold, or, at any  rate, give them food ; for game was so  scarce that it was hopeless to remain in  the district  It was Campbell who died next of  malarial fever;' and his death struck  the remaining two men with panic  Though they had followed the gold for  80 miles without coming to the end of  it, and though they were, lords of scores  of millions of pounds, thev fled from it  all.  Then came a terrible journey back  to civilization���and bread. The horrors of that journey haunted Rogers  like a nightmare to the last, and killed  Stokes before a quarter of the "tale"  was told.  After a month of terrible privations  and fatigues, stumbling blindly along  day after day. and hugging his sack of  nuggets, Rogers, the pitiful survivor of  the party, met ;i friendly tribe of Indians, who gave him food and nursed  him back to health again.  He never fully recovered, however,  and died within a short time of reaching" his home. He left behind him a  full account of his journey aud a rough  map of the region where his millions  sire lying.
