The question of a dry ore supply with
which to mix the high grade lead ores
of British Columbia is attracting much
attention with the recent turn of the
smelter situation, and we see almost
daily something in the Kootenay prints
relating to the question. The dry ore
belt extending from New Denver northwards along the lake shore and from
Rosebery up Wilson creek> and north
of this again for several miles, is at-
is the prospect of many claims being
restaked and worked in this locality
this spring and summer. .i
..Early;in the history„oithe,Slocan the ,
principal attention of prospectors and
miniug men wus directed to this dry
ore belt, and hundreds of promising
claims were staked. But the drop in
the price of silver that occurred in 1898
in a great measure retarded development of siliciouB silver ores when there
were no local smelters to use the product. All, or nearly all, of the claims
wero allowed to run out and since that
time interest in the dry ore section has
been only half-hearted and spasmodic.
With the exception of the Mollie
Hughes and other Goat Mountain properties, very few claims in tho dry oro
belt have bad any development work
put upon them in recent years. But
where the north fork of Carpenter creek
penetrates tho cone a few miles from
Throe Forks there are locations almost
without number and many of these are
in advanced stages of development.
This Is equally true of a vast region
north of Bsar lake and of Goat creek,
between that point and the town of
Whitewater. There is little question
that hundreds of miners will bo em*
ployed on these slllcious ore properties
and there will be a great tonnage produced from these areas when the local
smelters fully realize the magnitude of
ore deposits.

are also requested to be present.
It is a matter for congratulation that
the news prints of Canada, and particularly of the Slocan, are not given an
excuse to go into mourning more frequently.   The agony that some of them
gave evidence of, and the typographical
horrors that some of them turned out In
their misguided efforts to look mournful,
were enough to make the last sweet
sleep of the Good Queen one long nightmare.

Supt. Parker evidently believes in the
theory that the top expenses are no
more for 100 or 150 men than for 50, and
is;acting accordingly.
This week the raise from the 150 foot
level, in the south drift of the Brooklyn,
to the surface, broke through, the distance being about 85 feet. This shaft
is a short distance to the rear of the
company's office, and will be of no
small utility in working the property,
as it will provide fresh air in that part
of the mine.
On the Stem winder tbe force has
gradually been added to, and that well-
known mine is also being thoroughly
exploited. This week the old 200 foot
tunnel, the portal of which ia just above
the old stage road, was opened up for
the first time in many months,and some
exploratory work will be done there.
A draw bridge ha. been built to carry
the waste over the roadway. A raise
from this tunnel comes up directly
under the assay office. The tunnel was
used for a time as a powder magazine,
but a new log building waB erected this
week, far back on the upper part of the
hill, for thisjpurpose.
This week' a small force of men has
also beeu at work on the Idaho claim,
owned by the company, which will
doubtless be the scene of active development operations in a shorttime. Many
of the old time prospectors had a better
opinion of the Idaho than of any claim
ensl surface showing.
For several days past a force of workmen has been in charge of the old
fctfooUlyn bunkhoUao, and in a short
time the improvements will have been
completed. Accommodations are being
made ready tor 65 men, with separate
bunks, sparing beds, etc. At the eas
end of the building a reading and smoking room is being fitted up, and two
bath tubs will be put in. The building
will bo lighted and put in good shape

There is at lasl~soine show for the
Fisher Maiden. Here is a property that
has suffered as much if not more than
any in the camp through the evil effects
of litigation. Its history is well known
in the Slocan, and it is recognized as a
property of great promise—one that
will make a record for itself when systematically worked. The trouble has
never been with the property/but with
the owners. For many months it has
received no attention and little has been
known about what "was transpiring, but
last Thursday there was enacted at Nelson what will perhaps prove to be the
closing chapter of litigation, and the
preface to one of the brightest mining
ventures in the camp.
Some days ago there was filed in the
Record Office here by Sheriff Tuck a
notice that on Thursday, the 24th, he
would offer at public auction the mineral claims Troy and St. Helena, relocations of the Fisher Maiden and Sil-
veitoh, restaked in July, 1900, to satisfy
claims aggregating $15,597.50. The sale
cams-offj-when, accordlng.to.theJtelson,
Miner, the ground was sold to John
Elliott, barrister, who is understood to
have represented the Bank of Montreal.
It was bid in at 115,000,, Bids of.$IQ,OQO
and $12,000 were offered respectively by
A. J. Marks of Nelson, and Henry Roy
manager of the London Consolidated
Mining Co. The effect oi the sale of the
property by the sheriff will clear up the
title to the property and enable Its being worked afresh with a clean sheet.
It is understood that operations will be
resumed early this summer.
The history of the Fisher Maiden is
interesting. The claims were staked iu
1894 by John Popham and A. A. Webb,
and with a little work they proved their
property to be one of great promise. It
was soon bonded to George Hughes and
Ed. Mann, and operations were started
on an extensive scale. Buildings were
erected for the accommodation ofthe
men aud everything made ready for
the continuous working ofthe property.
A shipment of 87 tons was made, net*
ting $5,500. Over this disposition of
this sum the dispute aioso which made
the property known throughout the
country. The parties could not agree
as to whether the money should heap
plied on the bond or go to Hughes and
Mann. The courts decided that the
proceeds from the ore should be divided
equally among the litigants. While the
first legal fight was in progress Frank
Waton stepped in and managed to get
hold of the propertv on a $10,000 bond,
and turned it Into a stock proposition.
The result was favorable for a time and
everything went along i.wluiiitiiigly,
financial complications arose, the Anal
closing down of the property coming
some months ago.

any other working on the shoot the result is considered of much importance.
If this pay shoot is found as large and
rich as it was higher up tbe value of
the mine will at once be greatly increased. There is ore in all the upper
workings, and a large amount of stoping ground is blocked out, and even if
the ore shoot should not extend to the
No. 6 level, a contingency that seems
improbable, the amount of ore already
in sight would probably mean large
profits for several years.
The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining
divisions for the year 1900 was, approximate, 85,000 tons. Since January 1
to January 25,1901, the shipments have
been as follows:

Many years ago
a great man said,
In Qrhnnlc "Theschoolmas-
III OUiyuia ter lights a torch
in every village, and the priest
blows it out." Canada has had
much trouble over religion jin
schools, and now the report comes
from Manitoba that the Protestant
ministers of that province are agitating for bible teaching in schools.
The parsons seem determined to
create trouble in order that their
creeds will have nourishment to
sustain them, but they should let
the children alone, and seek support for their theories among adults.
Let the young have an opportunity
to enjoy this life without being told
that they are born full of sin, and
will be surely damned if they are
not baptised in the TDord. Much
of the bible is not fit for children
to read. Teach them knowledge
without religion. Teach them the
proper use of the body. Teach
them to keep off the trail blazed by
Onan, and to avoid all habits that
degenerate the flesh and damn the
intellect. Teach them the value of
love, of mercy, of justice.of charity
and kindness, but for the sake of
coming generations do not allow

Somebody pays > the public prints
ought not to publish such a horrible
story as this. VWhy not? When hundreds of innocent girls go from the small
towns to our large cities every year who
are lost to purity because they aro too
innocent to protect themselves*from the
ghouls that abdund in every large city,
why not? When parents shrink from a
duty that should be religiously performed in every family, and allow their
children to go from their homes unwarned of the danger in which every
young man and woman is placed. Why
not? When honest girls by the thousands in Toronto, according to the Citizen and Country, are compelled to
mingle in shops and factories with girls
who were once innocent, but who have
been preyed upon and are now the
brazen-faced tempters alike bf men and
other girls. Why not? When married'
members of civilized and Christianized
communities are more brutal and less
fruitful than the brutes iu the fields,
and when society is outraged and disgraced by the worse than barbarous
occurrences that are seldom revealed,
but that sometimes shock those who
have not allowed themselves to be controlled by lust and violence within the
marriage relations.   Why not?
Wo would not use so sorrowful a tale
as that told above for the purpose of
tickling the indecent fancies of a class
of selfish male and female readers, but
do so to educate the people and to warn
them of the existence of the numerous
pitfalls in every community. Will those
who are not yet convinced that the
story ought to*be told think for a moment of a million parents weeping because they have neglected important
duties to their children, in consequence
of which their sons and daughters are
herded together seeking pleasures that
are never satisfying because they are
hrutaljand unnatural? To the pure, all
things are pure. Then let the story be
told. ■■ These victims "■ of lust, whose
name is legion, and whom we all meet
every day, are somebody's sisters or
brothers—somebody's sonR and daughters. Then why should we be silent if
hell is here, as It is?

Give their elastic brains a chance
to harden without scaring them
with stories of spirits and demons,
and when they become men and

They have been on the wrong trail

find it out. If they would do more
thinking and less following, the
thin streak of reason in their upper

though he was practically penniless
—for he gave most of his income to
the poor—they saw to it that the

and then said:

workings remain to be uncovered and
what there is in and beyond them no
one knows. Record keeping and chart

fashion by the old Mexican miners. As

The Sirena is the first of the old mines
in the district to be unwatered. The
project is carried out by a New York
company; and it indicates the new
channel in which modern mining
methods in the old districts run The
company counts on making an immediate profit by going over the old workings and treating the ore out of which
the Mexican miners with tneir mule
power and hand labor could obtain no
paying results. Electricity is being
used where mule power failed, and
when the water is all out of the mine
the workings will be driven deeper than
the Mexicans could ever have dreamed
of operating them. The same method
is now being undertaken in other parts
of the district A German syndicate
has acquired the famous Valenciana
mine in the same vein, out of which
many millions have been taken by the
Mexicans Another mine in the Veta
Madre vein, which runs through the
district, yielded the King of Spain 117,*
000,000 in royalties. The unwatering
of the mines has been discussed since
the time of Humboldt, who had a project for doing it by driving a tunnel 12
mileH long into the vein, but it is only
now that American enterprise has
given a start to the work. ,
A west coast paper says it is astonishing the advancement made in the.business of mining during the past year in
lower California. It asserts that during
1900 over 1800,000 worth of machinery
has been sold to owners of gold and
copper mines, and •150,000 more has
been spent in*expenses incidental to
the setting up and transportation of the
same. This does not include machinery
for mines of other metals. It is simply
a new capital investment in these two
kinds of mines during the present year.

Composite photographs- combining
many pictures so as to get a type face,

face. Two portraits, for example,8how

proves to be an act involving the whole
face instead of a few muscles—a discovery that will doubtless be followed
by others as this art of analyzing expression develops.

district can be imagined from the following- statistics:
The Crow's Nest Coal Company are
paying* taxes at the rate of $25 per acre
on 10,209 acres of coal land.
They are working on a block of 480
acres which will yield 400,000,000 tons
of coal, at 3,000 tons per day the output
will last 40 years, or an average of
■1,000,000 tons per year.
It is estimated that the 10,2C9 acres
will, with scientific mining, produce
90,000 tons per acre, or a grand total of
718,810,000 tons, having a valuation of
$1,887,620,000 less cost of mining- and
interest of capital invested.
When it is considered that the coal
supply of B. C. at the present time is
greatly exceeded by the dem'and and
that there is a great scarcity of coal in
all populous centres on the American
continent to-day, the value of our coal
deposits cannot be overworked. With
two first-class markets, the Boundary
country and the Pacific coast cities, the
Similkameen coal fields will, as soon as
railroad facilities are afforded the district, become the most important producers in the province. The most important point to be considered in the
working of coal mines is the distance
from the mine to the consumer.
With adequate transportation the
coal mines around Princeton will be
situated at an equal distance from the
smelting points in the Boundary and
the cities of Vancouver and New Westminster. The haul to any of these
points will not exceed 150 miles and
will place our mines in such a position
that they will be able to compete successfully with any of the coal producing
centres in British Columbia.—Similkameen Star. A
The mineral industry of Canada has
become of such importance that The
Engineer and Mining Journal of New
York has started the publication of a
supplement to be issued monthly, and
to be devoted especially to the mining
and metallurgical interests of Canada.

Samuel Hill, son-in-law of JamoR J.
Hill, and prominent in railroad circles
in Minnesota, has juNt returned from
abroad In reference to the now railroad being constructed in Northern
Sweden under the Arctic circle, he
lays: There have been extensive discoveries of iron oro in that region and
the new road now extends 2fi0 mile*
from tho iron range to the Baltic ica.
In the other direction a railroad is being
graded and will be finished within a
year that will enable this ore to he
•hipped to Atlantic tide water. Mr.
Hill lays that, unlike the Minnesota
ore, which is an coarse as gravel, the
Bwediih ore li as tine as sand. "It
aeema strange," he continued, "that the
bent railroad in Europe, from a tonnage
■tandpoint, should he laid under thu

"The progress of Canada in this respect
has been marked during recent years,"
says the E. & M. Journal. "The value
and variety of its mineral production
has gained rapidly and steadily. In
the far West and North the mines of
British Columbia and of the Yukon
have made Canada a fold producer of
great importance, its total output of
$26,000,000 in 1900 exceeding that of
Russia and falling below those of the
United States and Australasia only.
British Columbia also contributes its
production of silver, copper and lead,
that of copper especially growing in importance. Western Ontario in the
centre and Nova Scotia on the east add
to the gold output.
"In coal and mineral fuel Canada has
extensive resources on both the Atlantic
and Pacific coasts, while both have valuable deposits of iron ore, to which
must be added the great deposits of the
Michipicoton and Atlkokan ranges in
Ontario, the development of which has
only just been begun. Nor must we
forget the nickel ores of Sudbury district, the most valuable of the kind in
the world.
"Canadians in the past have not fully
realized the value of tlieir minerals, but
they are now doing ■more to develop
and utilize them than ever before. This
is especially the case, with the iron ores.
The great works of the Dominion Steel
Company in Cape Breton; the Hamilton
and Midland furnaces in Ontario; and
other works projected and in progress
will help to give Canada the important
place as an iron and steel making country to which her resources in fuel and
ores entitle her.
All persons are hereby warned against trespassing on the "Marlon" mineral claim, on
Silver Mountain, In the Slocan Mining Division,
or f rom interferrlng with or removing any ore
from the same.

Dear Sir.—It gives me great pleasure to
testify to the success which has attended your
system of testing and prescribing for defective
eye sight in my case and to tbe relief I have obtained since using the glasses which you supplied. The particular trouble with my eyes was
considered serious by an eminent eye specialist
In Toronto, but with the aid of your glasses I am
enabled to attend to clerical work, and reading
for three and four hours at a stretch without the
slightest inconvenience In my opinion it is
unnecessary for anyone to go to outside points
in order to secure a thorough and scientific test
ft»r defective vision.
I am very truly yours,_
My optical department is now rieht up-to-date.
I test night or day. Come in on the train and
be fitted the same evening. My stock is also
very complete. j _-======'
