SANDON.  Mr. David has opened a tailor shop.  Sandon wants a bank, a church and  level streets.  Three more hotels are underway  for this rising* town.  J. S. Reeder is doing* a fine business at his new laundry.  Nick Palorcia is here with his shoe  shop from New Denver.  Mrs. Benoy is building a bath house  in addition to her laundry.'  A Nelson firm have opened a  butcher shop here, which is a' great  blessmg*.  TheSlocc'cn Store Co. will soon have  a fine building ready to accommodate  their large business.  Genelie & Co., of Nakusp are supplying large-quantities of lumber to  people in this town.  Brown & Clair have bought a stock  of gents furnishings and will open out  as soon as the building is ready.  No doubt but Mrs. Mailoy's new  boy will have a town lot given him.,  He was the first child, born in Sandon.  SILVER ORES.  BLUE BELL TROUBLE.  H. M. Martin has a position with  D. MeGilivery on the Arrow Lake Ry.  Mr. Owens, who has had -11 year��  of mining experience will spend a  few weeks in Chicago this fall.  Belofsky has gone to Japan, and  Hepner .& Hartley now have charge  of the dining room at tlie Brunswick.  Ira Black has bought Wrong's interest in the hotel at Sandon, and his  brother and Moore will run it in the  future.  The Miner's Exchange will be the  name of Weaver's new hotel. It will  contain bath rooms, something rare  in the Slocan up to date.  Hunter &  McKinnon's   new  store  The Bine Bell mine, on Kootenay  lake, was the scene of an unfortunate  affair a week ago, which resulted in  throwing thirty-five men out of employment, and the closing down of  the mine.  It seems that there has for some  time been   more or   less   complaint  among the men about the boarding  house,    Early this week a petition  asking for a change in that department.'and'headed with the names of  Prof. J. J. Liddy and Pat Murray,  was forwarded to Manager Hendryx.  On receipt of the petition Hendryx  went to the mine and immediately  discharged  Prof. Liddy, whereupon  there avis a general walkout, with  the result that the entire crew,, with  the exception of half a dozen married  men   who . have.'their  own homes,  were  discharged.    The crew   have  already scattered.    What is the plan  of the company as regards the resumption of work cannot be learned  as   yet.    Some say   the   mine   will  remain closed because the company's  smelter at Pilot Bay  will b^. taxed to  its full capacity  in treating outside  ores,   while others claim that a new  force will be put on at once.  There are all sorts of rumors as to  the causes, leading up to the walkout. It is said that another man  wanted control of the boarding house  and induced the men to send in tie  petition. It is also said by the men  when finished will be the finest in [that the mine is very dangerous on  town. It is on the lot formerly oc- j account of no timbering having been  cupied by R. E. Lemon. I done, but this is denkd.  (Written specially for [the Lkdgk.)  We have already seen that galena  frequently and in fact almost invariably carries silver in quantities  sufficient to pay for its extraction,  and it is from this mineral that most of  the silver production of this country,is  derived. But the recent discoveries at  tlie fooc of the lake and elsewhere show  that silver actually exists here in  payable quantities in ores which  carry no galena at all and are known  as dry ores in contra- listincfcicn to  ores carrying galena which are termed wet ores.  Now let us examine .a little further  into the com position of t hese d ry ores  and see in what manner the silver  which,is found in them exists.  To begin with many claims carry  silver in its natural elementary state,  that is to say uncombined chemically  with any other element, and is called  in consequence native sil* e���.  It is rarely found perfectly pure  but frequentijr contains also gold,  copper, bismuth, platinum, antimony,  mercury or other rarer metals in  large or smaller quantity.  It occurs in several different forms  as follows .: ���  1. Laminated or in thin sheets or  plates, an example of which can be  seen at any time in the Arlington.  2. In filamentous masses, that is to  say in small stringers, such as can be  observed in the Dalhousie claim on  Ten Mile.  3. Capillary or hair like, sometimes  called wire silver.    This form is not  so frequently  met  with as those we  have just mentioned, but is neverthe  less a very valuable ore when found.  4 In minute specks or grains dis-  seminated through various rocks and  minerals. This form is well represented by several claims at the foot of  the lake.  5. Massive. It is also found in the  form of nuggets sometimes weighing  as much as. half a ton.  Native silver is frequently associated with native copper and galena but  is often so finely disseminated as .to  be invisible to the naked eye. It is  found in eruptive or volcanic rocks  and also in rocks formed by dept sl-  tion, usually in veins or stringers.  I suppose every body is acquair. ted  with the appearance and physical  uroperties of native silver, so I will  not tire the readers' patience by going  into, a lengthy description of them,  but will pass on at once to the next  silver ore of importance, which ��� is  found in this district, namely, sul-  phuret of silver or silver glance.  It is as its name indicates a chemical combination of silver and sulphur  the mineralogical  name of which U  Argentite. It isofa blackish lead grey  color and sometimes occurs beautifully crystallized in cubes or otahedrons,  but more, frequently in the massive  state.     It   possesses  a   metallic   or  glassy lustre and can  be readily cut  with; a.knife, it is fusible at the temperature of an ordinary flame and is  very nearly as heavy as galena, having a sped lie gravity of abodt 7.��.  When pure it contains 87.1 per cent,  of silver, but it is nearly, always associated with the,sulphides of lead,  copper, iron, zinc, antimony, arsonic,  etc.   so that the ore containing this  mineral yields much less silver -than  the pure, sulphide.    It constitutes one  of the  richest  and  most abundant  sources of silver, occurring in veins  and occasionally in large masses, in  Germany, Norway, Hungary, Mexico,  Chili, Peru, Nevada and/British Columbia..  MINING NOTES.  Happenings    of   Interest   Among   the  Treasure Vaults.  The Kalispell wilLwork all winter.  Twenty men are working on the  Antoine.  The Monitor is reported bonded to  Tom Jefferson.  The Rambler will ship a car load  of ore in a few days.  '���'V' '   ���  " ,.  The force on the Alpha has been  reduced to two men.  Gilliam's pack train is packing ore  rom the Surprise to the railroad near  B ar lake.  Several important, mining items  from Springer creek are crowded out  this week.  A description of the L. H. and  several other promising properties  will appear in our next.  Ore is being packed from the Mountain Chief for shipment via. Nakusp.  Work has never ceased on this property for three years.  The concentrator at the Washing-  r.oa will be finished in 1)3 days. It  will be on the west side of the Great  Western Slope. Tom Mitchei :s  erecting it, and the capacity will be  5J tons daily.  J. L. Drumheller, of Spokane, has  sued'Mcf-srs. Bolander, Van Dorn and  MeClement for $10,000. He charges  them with entering on the grounds ot  the S.evenson mineral claim and cut-  tirg timber. A defense has been put  in and the case will be heard in the  Supreme Court some time this fall.  This case promises to be an interest-  iug one as both sides claim to be able  to prove their right to the property  bv the mining records. *'\*W:'rt^-^'^��->.*W->w��."*  rtW>Whtawiij.^j.W!i��ii��i.��'l���aifafa-iVJ -f �����  ���k^a^.>iiW.iii,--��f,^to.7j.rtlgg.^  &:^^>:i-^^i.^ attiu&JZ&Z  * ��M*axxKiinij: ���� .-i  :--;;���^".nr^m^^^^^  Second Year.

YVi.nsiow says this fact is known to
tlie doctors, but they hushed up the
l'aets. Dr. W inslow says he is a modi
cal student suffering from suicidal
mania. The .doctor has come to New
York to attend the niedical congress
which will be held this month, lie
will be chairman of the department
oi"'insanity and mental medicine, and
has.prepared,'a paper on suicide considered as -a.mentalepidemic. The
story tokl by Dr. Winslow is as follows : —
".Tack the Ripper'-'was a medical
student of good family. He was a
young man of slight build, with .light
hair and blue eyes. He studied very.
hard, and his mind, being naturally
weak, gave way., He became a
religious enthusiast and attended
early service every morning at St.
'Paul's. His religious fervor resulted-
in,homicidal mania towards the women of the street and impelled him
to murder them. He lodged.-with-a
man whom I knew,-and suspicion was
first- directed toward hihi by reason
of the fact that, he returned to Ins
lodging at unreasonable hours, and
that he had' innumerable coats and
hats stained with blood.

The ilk*viele and the Corset.
The .Paris correspondent of the London Truth says that the king, vexed
question of the corset is in a way to
be settled once and for all. Neither
doctors nor rational dress 'reformers
will earn the credit of the change,
thanks being due to the cycle only.
Cycle tailors and trainers' in Paris
are dead set against the corset.
"There's no answering  for  your
safety,   madame," says the trainer,
"if you  must go on  keeping your
conventional figure,   You need every
muscle   in   your    body   arid   every
muscle free.    A eeintiirc just deep
'■enough .to .sustain  the  waistband of
your   knieks "(knickerbockers,- . pro

you.    Indeed  the  knieks should be
so light as  hardly  to  weigh on the
hips.    The cycling' dress should be so

to-day. Since his incarceration there
has beeir no repetition of the horrible
murders that lie .perpetrated. These
facts arc all known, to the English
authorities, and it is conceded that
the-man now.in the asylum is Jack
the Ripper. It was deemed desirable, however, to hush the matter up.
The details were too horrible to be

A showman in England, Clarke by
name, has succeeded in training a.
large number of cats to perform remarkable tricks. One of these is to
walk over a long line of living--rats,
mice and -canaries, -stepping-, very
carefully between the fluttering little
bodies of birds and mice and harming none of them. Another cat dimbs
by a rope to the roof,'seizes thehandle

bears, lions, leopards, tigers and oilier

with cats. The cat indeed can never
be" so far conquered .that her performances may be depended on.-""Mr.
Clarke's entertainment 'includes.only

have substitutes for those that: will
not perform..
He calls the cat a "hopeless bundle
of sensibilities." Strike' her once,
though only by accident, and she will
never perform, again. Kindness is
not only politic, but absolutely, necessary....-' Some of his cats it took him
four years of ceaseless effort to train.
Mr.. Clarke's cats arc extremely

The difficulty in the cat's training
does not lie in the animal's intelligence, but in her disposition. She. is
as clever in.her tricks, if she likes to
do them, as "a clog, but. she; does no!

The Judge of a western court, in  order to, secure a safer and more  civilized condition of affairs in the  court room, asked the twelve jurymen and the ten attorneys present to  place their pistols in a pile in the  corner of tlie room, says the New  York Sun, but there seemed to be  some hesitancy in complying with  the request, and the judge insisted.  "If your Honor will put his down  first," suggested the foreman of the  jury, " I guess the balance of us will  follow suit,"  '���Certahily, gents," replied his  Honor, and laid his gun clown in the  corner.

To the lulitor of The Ledge :''.'���  Dear Sir,���.Will  you  allow   me  space to 'reply   to   "A Suggestion,"  ���.which appeared in your Issue of .the  . ;"th inst.  above tlie lionde plume of  "Algebra."  I think we must all agree with him  in   his   statement   that   "we   have  enough prospects of execptiona 1 ricli-  ness as far as assays -are concerned  but that these assays  have not yet  been backed up by actual shipments."  If only his reinedy could be carried  out to the letter, we could do away  with  our want  of outside capital;  keep all the  output among ourselves  and   live  happily  ever afterwards.  His   imaginative, article  from   the  Ledge regarding tlie meeting of the  Lemon  Creek Exploit-ion Co; would  certainly make fiaereading, but how  'much finer and of how much more  infinite value would a similar article  be in  the Montreal,   Chicago,   New  York or London papers.    I fear the  remedy suggested is out of the question.    Have the people of New Denver  ever shown an  inkling of that  public spirit and eo operation, necessary  to carry out such a- scheme,  or  does anyone in  his right, senses imagine that the maiiy factions,- each  pulling  for some separate locality,  could unite : on any one prospect on  which to demonstrate the feasibility  of this   suggestion  of Algebra's?   I  fear not: nibre's. the pity.    No,   Algebra, we cannot do much permanent  good  in the way  you suggest.    Of  course   we must   help ourselves as  much as possible,   but no real devel-  opement can be done without outside  help, and our experience is only a  repetition of the experience of every  other mining -country.    Let us arouse  the interest of men  to. whom a few  thousand dollars spent in developing  a prospect is a mere bagatelle.    A  development fund created  by local  enthuiasts would do little permanent  good. and   the   subscribers   thereto  would in all probability be financially crippled" before the property operated: could  be  placed  on a paying  basis.    To anyone who   has had  to  make   trails,   build  cabins and . go  through -the necessary preliminaries  to work  a few hundred dollars look  very   small  indeed.     We must   be  aggressive and make our resources  known, and to my mind the only way  to accomplish .this'end on a. permanent, basis is to invoke the aid of the  press.  1 think, Sir, we-must all agree that  your paper covers this internal section  very thoroughly considering tlie sup  port accorded yon,   audi also know ]  that an increase of support would soon  have its effect.    There is  of yourjinnd. Two dollars a month  subscribed by one hundred people,  who, like myself, have the country,  at heart, would allow the. establishment of a really representative .paper  that would herald our resources to the  world at large. With such reserve  to draw upon you could soon place  ���your..property on a paying,'basis,;,  This is only a crude idea open to improvement and enlargement, but it  is. at least, advanced by one who has  interests here and who has the welfare of the country deeply at heart.  It is advanced with all due -humility/  for perhaps Algebra has had more  experience in these matters than I  have, but I am ready to show my  sincerity by subscribingoheerfully to<  any fund, of the kind, and if others  can .���convince; me that the scheme is  impractical-.I will bow to the majority  and still do all in my power to further  the plan decided upon as the best.

YESTERDAY'S  -SPORTS.  Yesterday was quite a day in New  Denver, and. it would' have been  greater if the rain and other reasons  had not wiped, the ball game off the  programme. The 100 yard foot race  between J. Long, of Kaslo, and TV  Henderson, of this city, for a"purse of  $75 did not suit all parties. It was to  have been started by a pistol shot  being fired, but the twol mgspr'mters  got away before J. C. Ryan let the  cannon roar and ran to the string  where Long was a few inches --a head.  The judges said it was no race but  Long would not run^ again, and just  how the matter will end no one  knows. The ball in the eveaing was  well attended and the visitors from  Three Forks and other places were  well satisfied with their visit to the  metropolis yesterday.  MINING   FLOAT.
