Co.  is finished, and work on the ice-  break scow will commence next  week.  , Gcnelle's mill has enough of orders  on hand ahead to keep them busy all  winter. They are milling all the  timber foivthe Arrow Lake Railway.  Geo. Graham had one of his hands  severely bruised on Monday evening,  while coupling cars.  It is rumoured that another, steamboat will be built here for theC &K.  S, N. Co. ���     ���  The Alpine Group.  W. K. Richmond returned to New  Denver last week, and reported that  in company with Max Heckmann he  had made four locations, which they  called the Alpine group, about seven  miles from Kootenay lake, and hi an  airJine^ with the. Pilot Bay smelter.  They;,could see the Silver Kingtram--  way.frbm their discovery post. Three  of the claims are in the Nelson, and  the other in,the, Slocanai)ih'ing,di.vijfc-  ibh. The ledge is;.56 inches wide on  tlie discovery? and carries .free gold.  Other prospectors are now trying to  reae'i the locality, but the snow will  likely shut them out until next season.

A party of prospectors, grubstaked  by some ' steamboat men,   went into  the country opposite Fire Valley, on  the lower Arrow lake, in September.  In a short time one of the party recorded eight claims at Nakusp, and a  few  days later   eleven more were  recorded.    This  caused a nutter of  excitement amongst the Nakusp people, -and in a short time fourteen of  them were on their way to the scene  of the strikes.    It had been reported  that rock had  been found carrying  from $8 to $48 in gold.    The Nakusp  prospectors  found  a   party  of men  working on a claini near the lake,  The ledge on this claim was 15 feet  wide and consisted of talcy serpentine  between walls of granite.    The Nakusp   prospectors  picked specimens  from this property, several of which  were assayed and found to contain no  gold or silver.   Several other ledges  were discouvered   in   the   vicinity.  The rock from these has been assayed  and found to be  barren of mineral.  It is too bad that excitements of this  kind should be created, without good  foundation.    They   benefit   no  one,  and have a tendency to make green  mining speculators weary of business.  .The/ production of gold is being  well maintained throughout the Australasian . colonies.    The  two mints  (at Sydney-and Melbourne) have re-1  ceived for coinage during the first  seven months of the year, 1,079,836  -ounces*,*agahrst' 1;1��(J1825"dunces fo.iT  the corresponding period last year.  'There is a decrease of.40,989 ounces,  but this is more than made up by ah  increase in the direct shipments of  bullion.     The   Western   Australian  mines are not as yet producing freely,  the output being at the rate of only  about 20,000 ounces per month.    But  the fields are only just being opened, j  and it is anticipated that eventually  the output will be exceedingly large.  But of the British capital  put into  Western   Australian mines   without  discrimination, the larger proportion  is bound to be lost.  ���   The great Broken Hill silver mine,  that  is owned by  the Broken Hill  Proprietary   Company,    has   nearly  finished its course unless the immense  quantities of sulphide ores which  t  contains can  be 'profitably treated.  For the rich carbonate ores are nearly  exhausted, and a few more months  will probably  see the end of them.  The directors refer to the subject in  their report for the  half vear ended  31st May last in the following terns:  *' Your director*2,   together with the  acting general manager,   have gone  most fully into the question of tl e  future working of the propert}-, hav*  ing regard to the estimated quantity  of the oxidized ores still remaining in  the mine and available for present  methods of treatmen*, and they feel  that every effort  must be made to  economize the  higher grades of this  class of ore to such an extent as will  prevent any burden or excessive cost  being imposed upon the ore of a lower  grade. The matter is one of the  greatest importance, and your directors have given it their most careful  consideration, with the result that  acting upon the recommendation of  the acting general manager, they  have decided* to reduce the present  weekly yields to such limits as will  allow the maximum economy in  treatment to be secured, and, in  addition, enable the necessary output  of ore to be extracted at the lowest  possible cost."      ���;  The outlook is that before twelve  months are over the dividend (at present at the rate, of. 150 per cent, per  annum) will be, reduced to ,one third  for a short time, and that the shareholders will then have to elect whether  The American Boy is making a  shipment over the K. & S. Ry.  The Rambler has shipped 7 tons of  high grade ore to the Pilot Bay  smelter.  Work has been stopped on the  Mountain Chief until the new management take hold of it.  The application of the Omega for a  crown grant has been aclversed by  the owners of the A. B. mineral claim.  Two men went to work on the  Sapphire this week. They will run  a tunnel on the McGuigan lake slope.  There are 200 tons of ore sacked at  the Payne awaiting   the rawhider.  This mine will probably ship 500 tons .  this winter.

The  lessening of tlie profitableness ot the  mine will be gathered from the state-  orient thatjin 1891 the profit per ton of  ore treated exceeded ��6 5s. 0d., and  that the dividend was at the rate of  300 per cent., while the profit is now  only ��1 2s. lid. per ton tlie ability to  pay 150 per cent, being furnished by  the larger quantities of ore trjated.

Tom Jefferson did not conclude the  deal for the Monitor, at Three Fork?,  and Geo. Petty, the owner, commenced to work it himself last Monday.  The deals in progress lor the purchase of the Noble Five and Arlington  groups are awaiting the arrival of an  expert from the east. He will probably be in this week.  The 'Phoenix,  on the north fork of  Carpenter creek, has been leased for  one   year  to  Utlev  and   McGintv  Th<**y have commenced to work it,  and will make a shipment in January. '  The Last Chance has about 100 tons  on hand produced from development  work. Under the able management  of John O'Regan this property looks  better than most of the properties in  the country.  Lane Gilliam has sold his pack  train to Faas and McDonald. He is  now ore buyer for tlie Globe smelter  of Denver, and expects to go to  Mexico shortly in connection with a  patent for some kind of mining  machinery.  T.

THE LEDGE.  GOOD THINGS.  .. The late Frank Buckland, the English naturalist, was once walking  near Tenby, and met a boy carrying  a basket of poisonous fungi. In rcpl y  to a question, the boy said they were  for his own and his grandmother's  supper.. Buckland told him that  whoever ate them would be likely to  die, and advised him to,throw them  away. ,* * No," said the boy, '' 1 won't  do that; I can sell them to the hocel."  One of the smaller New England  colleges has for janitor (says the  Youth's Companion) a colored man,  ,who is possessed of wit. One autumn  day, just after the college year had  begun, -when, he was overseeing the  burning over of part of the campus, a  . * freshman coming along cried: -'Well,  Sam, -that's, 'most as black as you  '-are!". "Yes, sah," promptly replied  Sam; and next spring it' will' be  'most as green as you are ?"  In one of the leading journals of  Montevideo the following advertisement appeared recently: "A very  rich young woman, would like to  marry a young man of 'good family.  If necessary, she will pay the debts  . of her "future husband.- Send answer,  with photograph, to I.P,, at the office  of the journal.''' The inserter of this  ' announcement was no other than one  Isaac*Meierstein, a merchant tailor,  who had just set up an establishment  *  in Montevideo:    By this plan he, procured photographs of many unclesir:  ' able customers. *  An'amusing'instancc of an orator  unable to resist making a neat paradox was presented in a speech made  at a banquet given when President  Hayes and his Cabinet were in  Omaha. Evarcs was making a most  eloquent eulogy of the West, and  concluded one of his famous interminable sentences in these words: "I  like the Wdst���I like her self-made  men���and the more I travel West���  the more I meet will! her public men,  the more I am satisfied of the truth-  . fulness of the Bible statement that  the���wise���men���came���from���the���  East!-"  The question of bloomer;? is becoming more discussed   every day.    It  seems to be largely   a question ol  geography.    In   Paris,  bloomers or  knickerbockers seem to be generally  worn; in London, bloomers are rarely  seen  and do not nic^t' with  favor -  while in America there are all van-  ties of bicycling costumes, from tight-  fitting knickerbockers to the  Tjng,  full skirt.   Under these circumstances  tlie following declaration may be considered authoritative,   as  it is  from  that    leading   fashion    paper,    the  Baz-xr:    "' Recent observation of both  city and suburban cyclers has led to  the conclusion that   at   present thc  style most commonly seen consists of  a skirt of what may be called three  quarter   -lengthr-that   is,    reaching  about one-half way between the knee  and the ground.   Under these, bloom-,  ers are worn,   and leggings extend  from the knee to the ankle.    A skirt  of this length,  will not   catch anywhere, and if'it vis. made heavy and  rather scant; it will not blow about in  the wind."   There ;are  many   who  have predicted that in a Couple of  years the'bloomer for bicycling would,  be supreme.   From the foregoing and  man v other declarations in fash ion  papers it would seem doubtful.    The  gist of .the matter is- that women look  better in skirts than in bloomers, and  they will always wear that which  best becomes them-  R. S.

New Discovery on Lake Superior^  The Port Arthur correspondent of  the Winnipeg Free Press writes to  that paper of the discovery of a rich  gold deposit on the corth  shore of  Lake Superior. The locality in which  the discovery has been made is in the  mountains near. Jackfish bay, about  five miles from the C.P.R. where it  skirts the shore at that point. The  vein on the ledge has been traced for  one and one-third miles, it having1 a  width of from 16 to 25 feet, and conservative estimates are that it carries  from S8 to $10 per ton in free gold,  besides the sulphurets; in addition to  this, in places on the vein, quartz may  be broken out which is literally spat  tered with the precious metal, and  would easily go $20,000to $30,000 pel-  ton. This is t\ie richest and most important gold discovery so far made in  the Algoma district. ��� *   ,  ���^3*"  A CHRISTMAS LEDGE.  H.   T.   TWIGG,  NEW DENVER, B. C.  Provincial  Land Surveyor.

WHO OWNS IT?  j Keep Your Eye On  Don't, forget to put an ad.   in the  . Xmas:  edition of this paper.    It is  ;' likely that an illustrated and pathetic  story of the Slocan will appear, that  no one who reads it will forget as long  as their memory is convalescent.  The Omega mineral claim adjoins  the   Noble  Five  and is owned by  Harris and Kelly.    They have recently advertised for a certificate of  improvements in order to obtain a  crown grant,  and their application  has been adversed bv the owners of  the A. B. mineral claim upon the following grounds-    When the Omega  was staked it joined the 'Navajoe,  and was short of the usual size of a  mineral claim.    In   other words   it  was a fraction.    The Navajoe lapsed  for want of assessment work and the  Omega people then claimed that their  property filled to the number of feet  given by law with a portion of the  Navajoe ground,  without them re-  staking    the    abandoned    Navajoe  ground.   The A. B. people re-staked  the Navajoe, and now assert that the  Omega is upon part of their ground.

BLASTED HOPES.  HAVE OPENED AT  The roar of the great mining boom  that is coming,to the Sloean can. now  be heard, and when it is at its height  thousands of good Canadians will be  sorry that they did not invest.- a'.few.  dollars in  this' great silver country.  9  With a Complete  Stock of Gesits' Furnishings,  We have many things to be thankful for in New Denver. It is true that  our electric lights are not the brightest in the land, but at the same time  our trolley cars have never killed any  "person. < The bicycle fiend does not  run over any unfortunate pedestrian,  and the girl in bloomers never mars  our beautiful scenery. No green  traveler has ever been suffocated by  blowing out the gas in his room, - or  been robbek by a bunco man. We  have a town that is moral, surrounded by the grandest scenery in  Canada, and with a great future  before it.. Searchers for homes should  think of this before settling down  elsewhere.  Traveling tailors have been taking  orders in the Kootenay for several  years and have done well. Many of  them shipped ready-made goods instead of making the suits as ordered,  and the honest miners knew not the  difference. They still come and by  holding out inducements in price and  other ways obtain orders. One of  them conducts a raffle in connection  with his business. There is no  necessity of patronizing these outside  houses. We have plenty of tailors in  the district who live and spend their  money here, and upon the whole will  give better satisfaction than the  traveler who is here to-dav and.gone  to-morrow.  , Information gathered from seventy  preachers, in various parts of the  world in regard to the time that this  earth would pinch out is very discouraging to our. hopes. . Many of; the  clerical 'gentlemen placed the date  that the universe, will be crushed as  1904, while, others think it may linger  until.'1950. Just think of it! Only  nine years until the crash comes.   It  is enough to paralyze anyone to think HatS, OapS, .JB-OOtS &.Sh6eS,"'''Etc.' '"  of it. We had hoped for a long time  that by 1950 we would be put of debt;  and able to get married. For many  years we have dreamed about those  two happy events, and now the wise  and truthful theologians have crushed  and broken our heart. To think that  in nine years this beautiful world  will be nothing is terrifying. Only a  few short years and all the rich mines  of the Slocan will be in space, and the  blue atmosphere will fill the place of  rocks. The subject is to sad a one  for us to dwell upon. It should be a  warning to all who owe for this paper  to settle up before the assignment of  this moundane sphere takes place, and  they are cut off f.-om us forever. In  order to do all the business we can  before 1904 we will offer this paper  from now until the world peters out  for $50 in front, of any kind of cashable material.  ?  NEW- DENVER, B. C.

Mr. Townsend of Hong Kong states  that the silver ordered two months  ago has only just been delivered.  The silver smelters are said to be sold  ahead for two months.  The recent advance in the price of  silver caused by the sharp demand  on account of China and Japan has  established a scarcity of metal. Mr.  Townsend of the Hong Kong and  Shanghai banking corporation, expresses the belief that the accumulation of silver .at London has already  foundemployment. London statistics  show that there has been a decrease  this year in the importations of silver  into England of 8,000,000 ounces,  equivalent to ��1,000,000. This year  also there will be a decrease in the  importations of silver into Washington of 54,000, COO ounces, as a .result  of the appeal of r the Sherman law.  This indicates a decrease in the production of the white metal this year  of about 62,000,000 ounces.  A  Sandon, B. C.  |>OOTS and Shoes made to order.   First-class  work.

Salisbury,    Mashonaland,    South  Africa. ���To any of our readers who  are meditating a trip to South Africa  the infoi mation contained in this letter  may be of some benefit.    There are  two distinct seasons, viz., a wet and a  dry season.   The latter extends from  the beginning of December to the end  of March or first week in April.    So  as not to mislead your readers I must  here   state  that "the  mornings are  bright and fine; the rain generally  commences about .3 p.m. and lasts till  near  morning.   The dry season of  course  is from April to December,  with perhaps an occasional shower in  October and November.   This only  applies to the interior, as the nearer  you get to the coast the climate gets  moister   and   vegetation pioportion-  atelv ranker.    Along the Puiigwtc  river and for about 45 miles inland  the' grass grows from six to ten feet  high and abounds with all kinds of  large game, buffalo,   antelope of all  sizes, called springbok, etc., ranging  in size from about the size of a setter  v-og to a yearling calf.   This; part, of  the country is the home of the lion.  The   Pungwee   river   abounds   in  crocodiles  and   hippotami,   and all  along the banks are to be found all  kinds of game birds from a partridge-  to a guinea fowl.   The country, also  abounds in   all kinds  of venomous  snakes and serpents.   To grow vegetables  or  fruit the- land has cto be  irrigated,  otherwise there would be  little.or no crop; in fact I have been  told that nothing will grow without  it, and if I may judge irem what I  have/seen in the vegetable line, I  should "say it was true.; Ofthe:differ-  cnt kinds of fruits,, there are none  grown in/MashonalamV though wild  lemons  grow  to perfection.   There  are few wild fruits here, and what do  fifrow are eaten up by the ants or  monkeys before they are ripe.    All  vegetablrs  and lruits. are  sold by  auction twice a week all over South  Africa,  and of course prices   vary.  Potatoes   lun  from   $25 to J-,35 I-er  hundred pounds, and other vegetables  are equallv dear; butter brings from  $1.25 to $L75 per pound, and eggs $1  to  ��2  } er  dozen.    All ' the  native  animals are very small,  but hardy.  A {eculiar kind of sickness attacks  all imported stock, and they die off  wholesale.    Out of 200 horses brought  here about two months'ago there are  not five alive to-day.    No one seems  to know the nature of the disease:  the animals get the shivers and refuse all  food and drink,  gradually  line away and die,   leaving   their  bones on the velt to be picked by the  lions and jackals.  The climate of Mashonaland is all  that could be desired by anyone, with  one exception, that is malarial fever.  Wry,few escape it unless they are  very careful, but it is not of a serious  natuie and unless they are addicted  to drink and then it tak< s them off  very quickly. There is still another  drawl ack 'to the country. Vast  ���tordes of locusts overrun the country  every year, eating everything before  them. "They are very'much larger  than their American bretherrn being  at least 2$ inches long. I have seen  them so numerous that it was next to  impossible to see the leaves of the  trees on which they had settled : on  another occasion they seemed like a  *siowstonn in thc d'stance, flying  along the mountain side. The principal drawback to the development  of the resources of Mashonaland is the  are extending the railroad from Beira  to Massa-Kessi, that being as far as  their territory extends inland. ' They  charge $6 per ton for freight to the  present terminus, Chimoio; .from  there to Salisbury everything has to  be hauled by wagons drawn by from  eight to nine yoke of oxen, "which  takes from a month to six weeks on  account of the feed being so scarce in  the dry season and the muddy state  of the roads in the wet season. Tlie  cost of transportation from Chimoio to  Salisbury varies according to the  amount of feed to be found oh the  way, as they have to. trust entirely to  the natural grass of the country, all  other kinds being too expensive. In  May it was $3 per hundred pounds for  freight, now it is up as high as $5 per  hundred pounds. All this tends to  make everything very expensive.  The development of the golpl mines  is steadily progressing, and everything looks bright for the future of  the country. 1 here are some very  rich mines around Salisbury ; one  assay of ore from one of the mines  showed 400 ounces of gold-to the ton,  and they, claim that it- wasv_ some of  the poorest of the ore taken but of the  mine. It was enough to make* one  wish one owned that particular mine.  That is perhaps, the richest of all the  mines in this part of the country, but  last month's Official Gazette shows an  output of 220,000 ounces of gold from  the mines of Johannesberg, which is  almost as much as the whole output  of Western Australia in the same  length of time, and the country is not  half prospected yet. There "is also  any amount of iron ore in this part of  the country, and coal has been found  about 90 miles from here, so that all  that is wanted to make this place one  of the busiest places in South Africa  is railroad communication and capital  to work the mines. Up to the present  time' Chinamen have been refused  admittance to the country, but how  long it will remain so I caunot say.  1 have not seen any timber for anything but firewood, and that is not  very plentiful either. I have been  told there is some pretty gtod timber  around Bulwayo,. about 300 miles  southwest of here, but there is absolutely no timber fit for building purposes grows in any part of South  Africa. The" buildings in the town  are nearly all of brick and roofed  with corrugated galvanized iron,  mostly one story high, ths floors being  made of brick or cement. The bricks  are very soft and are laid in a kind  of clay called daga and pointed with  ordinary mortar. Lumber cost 36  cents per superficial foot, which would  make a wood building a very costly  affair, Of course the buildings are  all one story with a few exceptions  on account of the  ber.  high  price of lam  Wages run pretty high, but are  counter-balanced by living being so  expensive and everything one requires costs two or "three times as  much as it does in British Columbia ;  therefore a man has to. do a little  speculating if he wants to make anything more than he would at home.  I could give you some pretty tall lion  stories, but your readers would perhaps discredit them, sol will forbear.  During the late Matabele trouble a  fort was erected on the top of the  Kopje at the bac�� of the twon fitted  out with quick firing guns and a  powerful search light. The lattei  used to scare the niggers out of their  wits at night, and a nigger could not  be found  within thirty  miles of the  dilatory way in which the Portuguese, [place after dark.  At'an auction sale of property in  Salisbury and Umtali, ��41,000,worth  of property was sold in three days.  Although the.climate is as near perfect as possible I cannot say I would  like to live here altogether,it takes too  llong to hear from the rest of thc world.  It takes from three to six months to  get goods from England, and all of  three months to get anything from  Natal, a few hundred miles down the  coast from Beir, at the mouth of the  .Pungwee river. ���Victoria Times.
