for the work of man and spreads
his home like a new-born hot cake

easy as a Nelson man sinks a dollar. The snowslide when in action
is mightier than the government.
It puts railroads out of business,

(Continued from last week.)
Ae to deposits of zmc ore, we will
commence at Sandon, where there is to
be found a considerable tonnage of zinc
ores blocked out in nearly all die noted
silver-lead properties.
Tho Payne —This mine has for a number of years been the leading silver-lead
producer of the camp, and was also the
lirst property to take steps in tho
matter of the" economic treatment of
ziuu. The first zinc shipment of 1,000
tons was made to the Lanyon Zinc Co ,
of Iola, Kansas, in 1902, and averaged
about 41 per cent ainc, with nine ounces
iimilver. .In order to improvo the grade
the Payne company during11903 added a
magnetic separating plant (the first one
of its kjnd iu the country) whereby the
iron is eliminated to about 5'per cant.,
wnile other impurities in the ore are
very low, inaKing it a much sought
after product for spelter mai.ufactuie.
Zinc deposits of considerable size are
known to exist in this mine iu association with silver-lead ores. Altogether
1,800 totid of zinc have so far been shipped. At the present timeshipmentsare
being made at the rate of 200 to 300 tons
por moi th to Antwerp, Belgium, under
contract with European zinc smelters
The yearly output is estimated at 3,000
tons of 52 to 55 per cent, zinc-blende
concentrates containing about 10 ounces
of silver per ton
Tlio Lucky Jim.— Tnis mine, located
at Bear Lake, is, in my estimation, the
most important zinc property in the
Slocan The silver values contained in
the ore are low, being only about G oz ,
but the blende is of high grade. The
vein or Uer.osit, is very wide and can be
conveniently mined. 'Besides the zinc
ores a largo tonnage of lead is aiso
bucked out. lu 1899 an experimental
sliipment of 1,800 tons of zinc-blende
averaging 50 per cent, zinc, 3 per cent,
lead, aud W oz silver was shipped to a
zmc Mnelter near Manchester, England,
but through the untimely death of the
promoter, Mr. Brown, the enterprise
cane to xviel and the mine was shut
down. Keceiitly the property has been
bought by local* parties who intend to
work it during ihe coming season, with
undoubted prospects of success.

The Whitewater Deep Mine—This
oroper**y, which is an extension of the
Whitewater, has a zinc ore pirn.liar to
the Whitewater. !No shipments have
been made, but I understand that a con-
fiderable tonnage of good concentrating
materia, is available and that under
favorableconditions steps mny betaken
to erect a suitable plant for treating
The Ruth.—Quite a large tonnage of
zinc-blende is exposed at this property,
on winch a concentrator for silver lead
ores was erected several years ago A
zinc by-product assaying 40 per cent,
zinc, 10oz. silver, 2 per cent, lead, 1(5 per
cent, iron and 5 per cent, silica has been
made during the past year, and approximately 700 tons are at present on hand
awaiting disposal.
The Reco and Goodenough.—This
mine is noted for its exceptionally high
grade silver-lead ore shipments, and
produced in 1898 07 tons of 50 per cent.
zinc biciuie which assayed 99.5 oz in
silver to the ton, which Vas shipped to
Vivian & Sons, Hafod smelter, Swansea,
England. For the zinc contents in this
lot the smelters paid at the rate of $12.41
per ton net, with spelter quotations in
London at £12 10s, but they refused to
pay anything for the high silver values
in the ore. The smelters were, however, generouB enough to allow the
owners an advance of five shillings in
the market quotation from date of shipment until arrival It is hardly neces
sary to add that the above preposterous
transaction was so unsatisfactory that
no further efforts were made to continue
shipments to them, the above furnishes
an excellent exampleof the shortsighted
policy exhibited by Great Britain smelters towards encouraging shipments
from a new camp. It will be reuvem
bered that the high c()8t of transportation, which in this case amounted to
S28 17 per ton, had to be borne by the
shipper and was deducted irom the gross
returns. In consequence the owners
have found that in order to recover the
the silver values it pays them to mix
the blende with the clean galena shipments, whereby, of course, the zinc
values are lost." The Reco mine has not
a very large tonnage but a desirable
grade of zinc ore running high in silver.
The Goodenough mine, adjoining the
Reco, is worked in conjunction with
same, and has approximately 800 tons
of concentrating material on the dump
which will produce a concentrate with
values similiar to the one quoted above.
The Bosun—This mine which is loeat
ed near Slocau lake, offers in several
respects au interesting study. Close to
the surface, the vein was narrow and
the early shipments consisted entirely
of galena As depth was attained zinc
made its appearance, and at the piesent
time tiie mine produces three times as
much zinc as lead The total zinc ship
ments from this pro|'iTt-\ represents
1,440 tons, averaging 41 8 percent zinc,
71.3 oz. in silver, 1 8 per cent lead, and
0.4 per cent iron. Th" highest smelter
returns received for an individual lot of
40 tons was 51 7 per cent zinc, llloz.
silver, 12 per cent lead and (i per cent
iron On an average this ore carries
13 per cent silica, 3 per cent lime and
20 per cent sulphur When considering
that more than 1,400 tons have been
shipped since 1S99 this property holds
the record for high silver values in the
ore Six hundred and twenty tons were
shipped to Antwerp, 200 tons to the
Lanyon Zinc Co and 020 tons to the
Canadian Smelting Works. Aside from
tho zinc product this mine has shipped
approximately 2,000 tons of high grade
silver-lead ore to local smelters. The
management has been at a disadvantage
in several respects. Although tho vein
is wider on the lower levels close hand
sorting is required in order to prevent
penalties on the two minerals. The best
offers that can be obtained from the zinc
smelters is 75 per cent of the silver
values. While the mine was.shipping
to Europe the freight rates to Antwerp
were §21 These ha^e since been reduced to S13 Consi lerable ore is iu

close proximity to the Bosun, has a similar grade of ore, and could be worked
in conjunction with the Bosun to advantage, which may possibly be done.

desirable product for reduction work's

On the ear-t side of Kootenay lake, the
Blue Bell mine has been known for
many years. An unusually large ton
nage ol Uny grade zinc is available, hut
1 am larkiiia sufficient data to give further paiticulars This also pertains to
the Silver Hill mines, above Crawford
bay, where large deposits of zinc ore
are reported to exist.
In the e;»8t Kootenay district more or
less zinc is found in the St. Eugene
mine,but very closely disseminated with
the lead and iron, so that the marketable
product under present conditions has
not been fouuci profitable.
Further west, we find extensive surface showings of zinc on the Arrow
lakes opposite Halycon Hot Springs.
Along the main lino of the C.P R.
zinc has been found in a number of
places in the Illecillewaet, Revelsloke
and Golden Mining divisions All of
these ores are as a rule heavily mixed
with iron or lead or both, aud'some of
them must be classed withcomplex ores
Their silver values are also low.
The Monarch mine, at Field, situated
on mount Stephen, produced in the early
days 2,000 tons of lead ore which was
mixed with zinc-blende. This feature
made the ore difficult for the ordinary
lead smelter.   With a separating plant
at the mine and smelting works at the
coast conditions would be materially
North of Vancouver, on Lynn creek,
some very interesting prospects have
been located and samples of zinc-blende
assaying up to 50 per cent zinc have
been taken from the surface Further
along the Pacific coast and as far as
Queen Charlotte island finds of zinc-
blende have been reported, also on
Vancouver island of which I have no
further particulars.
From none of the above mentioned
properties to my knowledge have any
zinc shipments been made, and a great
many of them are still in the prospecting "stage and will probably remain so
until capital has been invested for
treating these ores at home Under present conditions they would uot stand the
high freight rates either to Europe or
the United States, and the owners have
either not the necessary capital or sufficient confidence in being able to make
the propositions pay. to carry on development work.

mill feed assays on an average 14 per

shipments have been made to the Lanyon Zinc Co , Iola, Kansas. The com
pany expects to produce at least three
times as' much zinc during the coming
season, as their concentrator has been
modified to suit the conditions. The
property is reported to have a large
body of" ore in the mine.
The Rambler-Cariboo (McGuigan
Basin.)—In this mine more or less zinc
is found scattered through the high
grade silver ores, part of which is concentrated and saved as a by-product in
the concentrator, with the view of making a finished ziuc product at some
future date Approximately 30,000 tons
of this material averaging about 13 per
cent zinc, together with a considerable
percentage of argentiferous galena, is
now on hand It is stated that an addi
tional 20 000 tons will be made this season, wheu tho mill is running.
The Antolno (McGuigan Basin )—The
Antoine is reported to have quite a tonnage of zine'running high in silver. Recently a carload was sorted out averaging 40 per cent, zinc, 75 oz silver, and2
per cent, lead, but up to the present time
no shipments have heen made.
The Jackson (Jackson Basin )—Extensive deposits of zinc and galena exist
in this miue. The ziuc ore which will
coiiceutnito something .like 5 into 1 is
in many respects similiar to the Ruth
ore. In former years this property
shipped several thousand tons of silver-
lead ore nnd concentrates The present
concentrator is now being remodelled iu
order to save the zinc by-product. During the course of the summer, this pjo-
purty is expected to ho reonened, and a
considerable tonnage of both galena and
zinc concentrates produced.

ou erecting a concentrating plant al
Rosebery for the treatment of above material, together with anv other zinc ores
mined in thu future It is also the intention to equip above plant with a
magnetic separator, and it is expected
that thereby a good grade of ziuc concentrates can bo produced.
The Idaho-Alamo.-—This group, located just below Three Forks, has been
idlo for a number of years. In thu earner days the Alamo whs well know n n*
a heavy producer of
lead concentrates mar
mine, which is close to the Wakefield,
has also a large body of ore blocked out
from  which milling   tests  have   been
made showing that a desirable grade of
zinc concentrates can be produced.   No
shipments have been made with the exception of a few carloads of hand sorted
ore, merely for its silver contents, but
the chances for a large output of zinc
are considered fair with the near future
when probably a mill will be erected on
the pioperty."  1 lie ore sent from the
mine will average about 12 per cent
The Galena Farm (Silverton).—This
property, located in the same vicinity,
is reported to have a similar proposition
lo tho Hewitt, out the only work done
on the property was for tho purpose of
exploring silver-lead ores.   During the
past few years no work has been done
on it.
The Noonday.—The remarks rnaue in
rsfereiice to the Galena Farm also pertain to ti.is property.
The  Enterprise—This property   is
located considerably above Slocan lake,
approximately half way between Silver-
ton and Slocan city.   Since 1003 about
1,000 tontf of high grade silver-lcad-ziue
ores havo been mined and shipped to
local smelters.   Average assays went
157.Ho/.. silver, 17 5 per cent lend and
23,0 pur cent zinc.   It will remlily be
seen that tho shipments wero mado for
the silvor-lead values nnd that a penalty of 50 cents per unit or $7 per ton
hud to he paid ou the zinc, which of
course acted as a drawback.   Some two
vents ago un attempt was made to concentrate the zinc from thu lead, but it
did not prove a success as thu lenses in
silver and gray copper proved excessive.
At thu present time thu mino is leased
and the ore sorted hy hand to bring thu
tenor of ziuc down"as low as possible.

George Aylard has a fruit farm at New
Denver, and ordered many trees in Ontario This is the reply he received
from the nursery company:
Dear Sir:—
We regret very much to notify you that the recent passage ofthe
Bill amending the Horticultural Board
Act will prevent our filling the order
for nursery stock which you placed with
us for delivery the coming Spring. The
provisions of the Act, as far aB the bond
and license are concerned are of small
consequence, and we would have no objections to complying to the new regulations on these points; but thegexieral
looBe wording of the Act, together with
the hostile attitude assumed by the Horticultural Board towards all Eastern
Nurserymen make it extremely difficult
lor any outside lirms to continue their
business in your Province, and the result
will likely he, that you will no longer
have the opportunity of buying nursery
stock where you want to, but must do
business with a few, small local linns
We supposed that we could iilliyour order this Spring, even if we did not continue selling there, and we wrote the
Deputy Minister of Agriculture as follows:
"We have on hand quite a number of
orders to be shipped this Spring, on
which we have already advanced tlie
the commission to our agents, and we
suppose, that we shall liave the privilege of filling tnese orders under the old
law, as the uld law was in force at the
time of their being accepted "
He has refused, point-blank, to answer
thisqucstion, and while competent legal
authority assured us, that, we have the
right to (ill your own and other orders
referred to,'the attitude of the Board
leads us to expect that they would throw
every obstacle in the way of our getting
the stock through to you in good condition, bv delaying their inspection etc.,
hence we have decided to notify you as

Once again the treasure of the Peruvian Incas has been found and tliis time
hy American and English engineers.
The buried treasure of the Incas has
been variously estimated from a few
million to several hundred million dollars and the present reported find
amounts to but $16,000,000 Search for
this treashie has extended through almost 400 years. The legend is that
about 370 years ago, at the time ol the
Spanish conquest, the gold was buried
by the Indians for the Peruvian Incas
to be paid over to the Spaniards as a
ransom for the liberation of Emperor
Atahualpa, but that the money Avas re
fused by the Spaniards, who killed the
Peruvian emperor. The treasure remained hidden. Since then innumer-
ablo exploring parties, native and
foreign, have made fruitless search for
the gold. It was by a mere accident
that the lucky finders came upon the
ancient treasure. While making surveys and driving stakes they discovered
the fortune. A dispute has now arisen
among them as to its division, in which
the Bolivian government has also interested itself. The government has
taken charge of the find, announcing
that on account of the difference in the
the nationalities of the engineers it will
act as guardian and supervise its distribution.
The Red Jacket shaft of the Calumet
& Hecla copper mine, Michigan, is the
deepest in the world. It has taken nine
years of day and night work to sink and
has cost $2,500,000. This shaft is vertical, but all of the other shafts of the
Calumet & Hecla follow the dip of the
lode. Work on it was started in 1889,
immediately after the last of the three
great iindcrirruind fires in the older
workings of the mine, which did damage
of more than §1,000 000 Work has been
continued upon it since Mint time, and
tho shaft stands without a parallel in
mining. It contains six compartments,
each eqaul m size to an ordinary mining
shaft, four of which are used for hoisting rock and lowering timber One
shaft is utilized for tho ladder ways, and
the sixth compartment carries the wires
and pipes for telephones, light, power,
water and com pressed air,

Fume, idea of the Comstock, Nevada,
mines may be had from tho following:
In I860 tlie vield was: Gold, §550,000;
silver, 5200,000. In 1861: Gold, $2,300,
000; silver, $l,u00.000 By 18(11 the pro
dilution had readied: Gold. $o,t00,0o0;
silver. $9,600,000 By 18G9 the output of
gold and silver-had dropped to §7,105,-
578. From 1870 to 1877 there was a
steady and rapidly increased product—
in the last named year, that of the
greatest output, 814,520,0*14.08 being
/old and §21,780 922 02 being silver
The total output of the Comstock mines
in gold and silver to the end of 1902 is
probably very close to §371,000,000. Oi
this sum there was about 00 per cent,
silver, the remaining do percent, being
cold. These values were recovered ;
tlie losses are estimate at between
$1.0,000,000 aid §80,000,000; of this loss
modern methods would have saved 7<>
per cent.
