Commenting on a proposal which  recently appeared in Tun Herald's  editorial column that the government  should establish a rigid system of in-  spi'etion eif claims ,-inil publish an annual or hcmi-itnnuiil report for lhe  guidance of the public, the Slocan City  News says:  "A measure of this sort would serve  as a protection to the outside public  ���������igainst any wildcat scheme's, as property whie-I* did not show tlie government stamp or mark would be branded as a fake. The development of property is very essential to attract capital, anil legislation should tenil to lhat  end. The aliove system would act as  a government gi.iile to investors, and  woulel give confidence to people -seeking investments.  ��������� The main object of incorporation  would be to obtain sidewalks, graded  streets and sewers. In the present-  state of this place it would be, utterly  impossible to start any scheme sufficiently comprehensive to give satisfaction.without raising money, and a  ge'od deal of money at that, by 'de:-  hentures. But until there is a clear  title to the townsite the debentures  could not be floated.

Another.Rich Claim on the Lardeau that  , will be a Shipper Next Summer.  This group of claims lies on Gainer  Creek, a tributary of the south fork of  Lardeau river, m the vicinity of (lie  well-known Badshot group. The  character of Lho ore is similar to that  funnel.in the Badshot. consisting of  grey copper and galena. A sample of  this nro assayeil the highest of any  assav yet niiule. of ore from tlie Liir-  clc.tu. There are several claims on the  group, the only ono ein wh'ch any ele-  velupnient lias been clone, being the  Black Prince claim under the diri'ction  eif Mr. Yawkey. an old miner and a  thoroughly practical man, who is fully  convinced ol tho-value of the property.  So far a, shaft has been sunk 'JO feet on  a good body of high grade ore, aflt-r  which a tunnel was run to (ap the  ledge at a depth of 21)0 feet. Work  was abandoned in the fall, but is to be  commenced again on this rich claim  as soon its supplies can lie got to the  mine, that is almost iiumceliately.  The Black Prince has shipping ore on  the clump now,, and will m I he-opinion ot competent mcii, develope into  one eif the best, mining properties in  Wcit'Koejten.iy.

Carlyle,  ���������  Provincial Mineralogist���������The Reco,  Slocan Star,  Wonderful and Others  There arc four distinct kinds of on-  veins iu the Slocan, says Mr. W. A,  (,'iirlyle, in his recently issued report.  Of these the principal is Ilm  argentiferous galena, with zinc blend,  which/contains a little gold and greiil  quantities of silver and lead. Most or  i no veins are narrow, ranging from  two to three to twenty inches, wilh  occasional widenings to" three or four  leet of more solid ore. The Reco mini-  has produced 730 ounces ot silver to  t he ton, and the Last Chance Inis  leached 75 per cent of lead. One ton  nt ore hearing 730 ounces of silver  would be worth almost JjiijOO. The.  Slocan Star, which has paid upwards  of $300,(100 in dividends, has produml  a' body of ore ranging from K'J told  ounces of silver per ton. and froin 7(1  In-73 per cent lead. On October 17,  1S01, Mr. Bruce White, who with  some other prospectors were workmi;  up Sandon creek, discovered in t.liej  bed of the creek a vein 13 feet wide1.  Prospecling to the. west through u  a dense forest the vein was found  again with a large surface exposure*.  From this point this foremost of  British ' Columbia mines, which tliu  Le   Roi  gold   mine   has   just   lately  ��������� ���������quailed as a dividend payer, was  developed. A steep wagon road runs  lo' tho three upper tunnels, but the  lower grade ore is taken lo a concentrating mill by a gravity tiaimvav  1.000 -feet long. The null has ii  capacitv of 150 tons in 21 hours. It  cost $30,000. There are Si tni'ii  employed altogether, of whom ten are  at the mill. The concentrates and tlio  better class of oies are then shipped  to-the smelter.  RARE GOOD  FORTUNE.  Last October a two-thirds interest  was sold in another mine half a mile  away, trom the Slocan Star mine, for  $100,000 to-Mr. II. Foster-of England,  After the discovery of the Slocan St-iir  prospecting went on vigorotislv. A  part, of prospectors had been working;  carefully and nersistcnfly, but strtig-  gling against innumerable hurdshins  and disappointments, when one ilny  a couple of small pieces of iron stained  rock were noticed clinging to the rools  of a tree that had fallen with thu  wind. Going to the point on the  ledge from which the tree had fallen  a little further work sufheed to locale'  the vein. One thousand five hundred  tons.'ranging from 100 to 120 ounces  of silver have been sent lo the  smelters.  The Wonderful group has also an  unique history. Extensive work h'lel  l-ec -carried on with unsatisfactcirr  ri'sulls until, in 1S03, two car lei.-id's  e-f ore were shipped. A good deal of  ore being found in unexpected places  it was determined to bring water froin,  n neighbouring stream anil let it. nil  tts way to the. rock. The result of tlie  experiment w.-is the discovery of pieces  i.f galena in tho tunnels and lhe  substitution of hydraulic mining, the  waterjieing allowed to rim*"for sever.il  hours, after which several tons of  high-grade ore were taken up. More  i ban $25,000 were thus won. Eventually the thickuc-ss of mineral hearing  debris was found to be not very great,  nnd   as   the   surface   washings   were  ��������� leared away boulders of galena weic  eeiiiie upon, one of which weighed lit  e-wt: 100 tons of good ote' were recovered from the debris before lho main  tich vein was come upon.

The  Surprise has been shipping since ISM,  and IheAnloine shipped 00 carloads  i'f ore last year.  Of the Whitewater property Mr.  Carlyle says: "This propertv has also  paid for itself since its discovery, hif.li  grade silver ore having been mined  from the grass roots without ever u  demand for money being made upon  the owners, and this vear -i dividend  will be paid of $25,000." -This seems tn  justify the oft repeated assertion that  the Slotan is the Eldorado of the poor  man. -  A Victory for the Archbishop���������More  Fighting in Crete--Public Meeting  in Rossland Sends Advice to Grover  ���������The   Hammond  Jury   Discharged  Montiieal, February 22.���������The  rumour that Hugh John Maedonald  will retire from Federal politics to  iiccept the leadership of the Conservative parly in ihu Manitoba legislature is revived by the presence here of  Sir Charles Tapper and Mr. Itoherl  Rogers, who had a conference last  nighb at the Windsor Hotel.

Brigbt's disease and diabetes,  opposite conditions, have their  cause in the kidneys.  Catarrh and other diseases of the  bladder are caused- by the kidneys  doing defective work, leaving the  urine in an iuflammatory state.  Gravel, weak ankles, hands and  feet always wet with perspiration,  and many cases where there is a  lack of perspiration, are abnormal  conditions caused by abnormal  kidneys.  Varicocele, varicose veins and  milk leg originate in defective  kidneys.  Curvature cf the 3pine, in old or  youup, and gout are caused by  deposits from the fluids of the body,  which should be carried away by  the kidneys.   '  A cough or a lever may come  from congested kidneys. ' " Constipation and female troubles may  arise from the same source.  Paraplegia-is often the result of  weak kidneys. Paralysis of half or  the whole body may have its firit  cause in. the kieineys.

Interesting and  Piquant Style���������Some Pointers for  Alberta Farmers and Dealers.  The Edmonton Bulletin is in receipt  of a very interesting Ictti'r from CM.  Woodworth. ���������'barrister, late of Edmonton, now of Brandon, a new citv  iu the Slocan District, under date of  January 30.-. -Mr.  Woodworth   says:  I have at lust ended my travels in  British Columbia and am sullied hero.  This is a larger .place than Slocan City  at. present aiui they arc about a  eptarter of a mile apart. As Slocan  Citv has the lai'sur silc I think it will  have thu larger boom. The place is  inoro'talked of in Kootenay than any  cither. At present, however, it is  very dull.  I have been in Hovels! oko, Nakusp,  New Denver. Sandon, Kaslo. Nelson.  Northport, Salmon Sidinu, itusslaud  and Trail, and found all thriving.  Itevelstoke has a great future.  Sandon is in the centre ot more rich  mines than any town in the Dominion.  No one will" ever make it their  residence except for business An  enormous amount of Edmonton  produce will continue to be tisctl there.  It will bo a mining ramp, not a city.  New Denver is prosperous and  progressive. It. is not over domain  any line. It may become a city. The  railway and bonis have sidetracked it  so far. I doubt if they can continue*  to do so. It is the seat of Ooverumeub  offices for Slocan.  Kaslo cannot fail to be prosperous.  Up the Kaslo and Slocan Hailway to  Sandon, a large string of rich mines  look to ib for supplies. The stores are  much finer, numerous and bolter  supplied than those of any other  Slocan town.   Morally it is a sink.  Nelson is steadily prosperous. There  duos not seem to be so much of lhe  iiootn and gouge element as elsewhere*.  Geographically ��������� I cannot see why it  should be so" important. But lhe  Government nnd the Canadian Pacific  Hailwav make it their Kootenav  lieadeiunrters. The Nelson and fort  Sheppard road made straight for it.  No one dreams of the Crow's Nest  road sidetracking il. Loan companies  .���������in* willing to invest in it, wholesale  houses locate there, nnd men who  wish a sure thing invest there. Why:-1  Numerous other sites would seem  .more convenient, more suitable for  junctions and more certainly in the  line of travel.  Salmon Sidmg is booming. Rich  prospects are reported near. Lots are  selling high. Trail and Kossland  parties are engineering the deals. At  present only' a few barn looking  shacks are "standing there. It may  lie all right.  No working man should go to  Rossland. Men are there asking for  meals. Besides it is swarmed from  "Washington. All around lie immense  eiuantities of low grade me. But few  tif the mines can at present stand  transportation and smelter charges.  In my opinion Rossl-inci's future hangs  on the Crow's Nest Railway and coal,  fa-^ii_t-_-<i_^f*-'t'i*^^  the general cheapening of transportation and Miiollorcharges, and the  continued influx of capital for  development. The terrible hardness  of the rock and tlio low grade- of most  ores makes this no poor man's camp.  Some specialists 'praise the Kossland  district very" highly, while others  condemn unsparingly. Throughout  the. rest of Kiwiteiuiv, Rossland and  Spokane boom niel.liods bear the taint  of suspicion. I fear that many an  eastern investor will remember the  inline "Hossluiiel" with sadness. This  much is certain. The few great mines  iirounel it probably secure ib from  retrogression, and the great number  of prospects anil low grades probably  assure it. progress. At present it is a  llnanc-ial centre, wheiu stocks are llrst  to he had in Ivoiitenay, and thu Mecca  of every iielveiituror into the  Kootenay. However, nn a stock  market it is outdone by Spokane, even  for Kootenay stocks.  Trail has a great smeller. Ilcimu-,  the C P. B. and others think it will  have* more. One railway now laps it  and tho Columbia Hows past it. Other  railways seem probable. Asiisini-lt-  iog, commercial and railway town  I am inclined to place it high for the  future.  Edmonton seems to have captured  the oat market, eir to be al least ,-t,  very successful competitor, as far  south as Trail.  P. Burns does tho largest beef trade  in the Kootenay. Southern Alberta  is sure of this trade. It also will supply a great number of horses, and, perhaps nearly all, if present duty is kept  on and transportation lowered.  Edmonton vegetables do not have  the market. They cannot, hope to, not  because thev are. not high class, not  because of 'the 0. P. R., bub because  the exporters do not understand their  business and won't learn.  Regarding Edmonton bacon and  hams. These two facts are spoken of  everywhere: Edmonton packers do  not understand curing. Their meat  appears shrunken. It is too salt.  Miners do not wish to parboil.  Edmonton prairie, hay is not wanted,  or only at a reduced price. Blue joint  will be taken at a higher prives, but  timothy is what is needed.  My remarks on vegetables will, perhaps, apply with variations to dairy  products.    But   Manitoba  and North  West Territories  creamery seems to  have a good foothold.  In general the miner and prospector  who pack their supplies up mountains  for miles, know what they want and  will not forgive a dealer who gives  them something else. Price is no object. The local dealers' understand  this. Edmonton dealers do not, and  perhaps are surprised that the first  order from Kootenay has been the  last. Hael that one order been satisfactory other orders would have followed" and prices would not now have  been bantered about. Study the Kootenay trade. Kill each order exactly.  Nov'er substitute; it will not be forgiven. Organize, and continue to supply the exact article required at short  notice without fail. Variation in the  prices at Edmonton amounts to a  small percentage of the cost when the  goods aru landed live or six miles up  the mountains from the nearest railway.  MR. LINEHAM'S VIEWS  -Some  -High  On the Mines of Trail Creek  Advice on "Wild- Catting"  Price for Fuel  Toronto'Globe: A representative of  the Globe had a pleasant conversation  for a fow minutes yesterelay afternoon  with Mr. John Lineham, of Kossland,  who is spending a, couple of days in  the city at the Walker house. Mr.  Linehain is a member of the Legislative Assembly of Lhe North West  Territories, anel wont to live in Kossland lust March, where he bought out  some mining claims which he has  since then been developing. He now  has ii shaft down about 120 feet, and  says that he is satisfied that it will  turn out all right. When asked if he  was here to put any stock on the market he replied: "I" am not here to sell  stock, and have never yet offered a  dollar's worth for sale." This led up  to the sullied of "wild-catting,''and  Mr. Lineham at once admitted that  some of this would in all probability  be done, but. he asked, "How arc we  going to lind out, when a property is  put on the market, whether it is a  wild-cat scheme or not, form a country where there is so much good iron  capping it is yery hard to say which  will be a good mine and which a fail-'  ure?"  Mr.   Lineham   went   on  to explain  that  all   this   iron    capping,    which  ranges from 10 to 30 feet deep, shows  gold in the assay, but not in sufficient  quantity to pay; but il is this very iron  capping which indicates that good pay  ore, or good paying chutes, as they are  called, are lying underneath. In  some cases a shaft sunk through the  iron capping will strike one of these  chutes and it then becomes a good  mine. In another- instance a shaft  may be sunk down perhaps 101) or 12U  leet and crots cuts made, and still no  paying chute, found, yet a bonanza  might be lying within a fow feet of  wheroLhey quit working. '"It is all a  matter of development." said Mr.  Linehain, "and the people down east  who want to make money thiough  mining will have to be governed by  their own judgment to n very largo  extent."  "One of the main things to look  for," he said, "is honest handling with  competent men in charge of the development work, and if the public endeavour to get this honest handling,  which is (jiute possible, they will elo  considerable towards diminishing  wild-catting.'1  Mr. Lineham then went on to say  that there was considerable development work going on tins winter, and  he had no doubt but thai Rosslutid  would contain 10,000 souls before summer came. He also said that he believed another smelter would be built  this year within n, very few miles of  the mines. Coal is now selling for $12  per ton, and soft wood at about ijiu per  cord, but Air. Lineham expects that  when the Crow's Nest Pass Railway is  built, which he says would open up  another country, rich in all kinds of  minerals, the price of fuel will be  about cut in half.  flerchant's Hotel  lllecillewaet, B.
