 Ef ��M^MMi����(lCU/M  A  Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  <=%  Has  Three  Smelters  in   Successful  Operation,  ancl  Enough   Ore   in Sight to   Run  Several   More.  FIFTH   YEAR.���NO.  ID.  NELSON,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY,  APRIL 3,  189/.'.'  TWO   DOLLARS A YEAR.  TOWN   OP   QUARTZ   CREEK.  Profitable, If Slow.  A mine is not made  in a  day.    It i.s a  long   distance     between     prospect   and  mine, and  the distance must be bridged  The New  Mining Camp   Expects a  Biff  Boom  This Spring.  The new town of Quart/. Creek lias built  up rapidly and has now about forty buildings. Many men are going in every day  seeking investment", and the hotel accommodations are insufficient. The government has practically decided upon building two bridges across Salmon river: one  south of.' Quart'/ Creel' and the other a  mile and a half north, which would better  suit the purposes of Wild Horse creek.  There is already sufficient ore in sight to  justify the building of eight or ten miles  of wagon road up Wild Horse creek, and  it seems probable that construction w.ill  be commenced during the coming spring.  The entire district, all of which lies in the  Nelson mining district, is literally plastered with claims, many of which show  free gold on the surface, and much'of the  ore is suitable for concentrating.  The excitement is considerable and  there is sure to be a, big boom when tho  snow disappears. Like the famous Slocan district, these properties are showing  up well from the start, and the consensus  of opinion is that the camp will be fully  as rich as any other district in the Kootenay. Much development work i.s being  done, and a number of mines are making  preparations to ship.  Paid $-1,000,000 In Dividends.  The famous Silver Islet mine on Lake  Superior, wliich closed down in IS70, may  , be opened up again. Yp to the time when  it was abandoned it had paid $1,000,000 iu  dividends, and produced the richest ore  in the world, but it had to be given up  on account of the water which got in, and  which gained headway through a peculiar  stroke of fortune. The Canadian Pacific  railway was not built in those days, and  the coal necessary to run the pumps had  to be brought iu by boat from Cleveland.  The Consort., bound I'or the mine with the  winter supply of coal: was frozen in in the  south shore, and when the coal was exhausted the pumps were stopped and the  mine filled up. Then misfortune struck  the directors in many ways. The managing director died, the secretary fell ill,  and the stockholders lost faith, with the  result that the enterprise was abandoned.  Peculiar Find in the Curlew District.  A curious ore wa.s recently brought  , down from the Anchor, uiiuc. in the Curlew district. 10 miles southeast of Nelson's  store, says the Spokane Review. The ore  is peculiar in that there is an association  of minerals rarely if ever found together.  It carries nickel, cinnabar, copper, gold,  some'silver and' cobalt. From the samples taken from the face of the tunnel  several assays have beeu made, but the  existence of nickel was not thought of  until returns from a sample of surface  rock were received from St. Louis recently. This return gave''$'kS in nickel,  Subsequent assays gave a value of from  $-iS to .$(10, and at present prices of cobalt  a value on that mineral of $n(), and 2 per  cent copper.  Luck in "Wild Horse District. '  One of the greatest strikes in the Wild  ���Horse district was made a few days  ago in the Tennessee., This mine was  located last June by Bob Turnbull,  aud sold in January to J. McCreath for a  snug little fortune. Mr. McCreath is a  mail that knows a good thing when he  sees it, and as soon as he came into possession he commenced development by  driving a tunnel, and now a solid wall of  ore six feet across is in sight, carrying  gold, silver and copper.  Preparing For the Rush.  The Grand Trunk railway, the Great  Northern and the Northern Pacific are  extremely anxious to obtain an agreement with the Chicago-St. Paul lines with  the object of meeting the cut in rates  made by the C. P. R. on traffic to the  Kootenay district, so as to enable them  to obtain a fair share of business when  the spring rush begins. A conference has  been held, but the other lines hesitate,  fearing a rate war in their territory.  "In On It" Means a Half.  The full bench of the supreme court has  given judgment iu. the celebrated Wells  vs. Petty appeal case in- which the plaintiff claimed an interest in the Monitor No.  "2 at Three Forks, on account of the defendant promising he should be "in on  it." The full court held that the plaintiff  should be entitled to half an interest and  to an equal share with him in the extension. Chief Justice Davie and Justices  McCreight and Drake all agreed.  Mongolian Miners.  The Chinamen who were engaged in  placer mining near the mouth of Boundary Creek last season are now making  preparations for this year's work. A considerable' amount of gold has been obtained from these workings since they  were found in the early 00's.  The Irrepressible Jim Wardnei'.  The earl of Norbury and Jim Wardner  have secured IfiO acres of land on the west  bank of the Kootenay river at the point  whore the Crow's Nest Pass railway is to  cross that river and will lay out a town  there, to be called "Wardner.  by skill, energy, hard work and capital.  This is repaid many times over. ��� Good  judgment and experience is' required to  tell when the prospect may be properly  developed into a mine. Mining is safe  and profitable when carried on with the  same amount of judgment as is used in  other successful business enterprises.  ROSSLAND   MINING   NOTES.    ���  Miner: it appears to be settled beyond  any reasonable doubt that the silicious  ores of Itossland are free-milling, and that  at least To per cent of the values can be  saved on the plates and in the concentrates. The official report of the last Le  ltoi test seems to be conclusive. Captain  Hall, superintendent of the Ho ltoi, i.s so  well satisfied that he recommends the'immediate construction by his company of a  200-ton milling plant. The success of this  test is the beginning of a new era in tfie  history of the camp. It settles the question of the profitable treatment of all  silicious ores which run above $J3 a ton.  Of these ores there is an inexhaustible  supply. The War Fugle mine alone has  .'JO.OOO to '10,000 tons of ore which will run  from $."> to $1"> in its waste dumps.  Western Mining World: It is now definitely stated by those who seem to be in  a position to know what they are talking  about, that an agreement has been made  between an Knglish syndicate and the Le  Roi Mining company for the Le ltoi mine,  at a price which is said to aggregate $5,-  000,000. Jf this deal is finally consummated at $5,000,000 it "will be the largest  nuning deal closed in the west for many  years, excepting, of course, the recent sale  of a portion of the Anaconda at Butte,  Montana.  Iteview: The Center Star is now in  possession of one of the largest bodies of  high grade ore in the camp. The average  assays from the first work done in ore on  the Center Star did not go over $8 per ton.  The Miner: An assay of the ore found  in the Iron Horse shaft gave $07.20 in gold.  This was in the nature of a surprise.  While the ore has a good appearance it  was not expected to run so high. Further  developments as to the extent of the ore  body will be watched with much interest.  What wa.s a. streak only two or three  inches wide has already widened to eight  inches.  At- a meeting of the directors of the Le  ltoi Mining tt Smelting company on Saturday night, a dividend of $2.~>,000 was declared, makingthe-total of $#>(>.(X10 paid  up to date.   ON NORTH FORK OF THE LARDO.  Quite a number,of locations have been  ..made up this creek, chief amongst which  are,the Cascade, Big Five, Bed Plume and  other groups. Some previous locations  '.have remained unopened with the exception of the Pilot Knob group, which lias  had a ���! (30-foot tunnel run. This has exposed a clear ore vein 18 inches wide and  assaying 1")0 ounces silver with some  copper.  The Morn ledge, one of the main ledges,  has thirteen old locations on it and several  recent ones. The lead is heavily..capped  with iron aud is traceable for miles. It  must remain largely undeveloped until a  railway goes into the country.  Oue of the best of the new locations on  this fork is the Big Five, in which some  rich copper glance has been found on the  surface. This property has-been bonded  to an Knglish. syndicate for a big price.  There are several other most promising  groups and properties such as the Black  Eagle,'Molly Mack, Silver Tip and others,  but space will uot allow any mention of  them. Trout Lake district has au abundance of good mineral proper ties,'and the  fingers of both hands cannot count the  number of prospects that will soon be,  mines. Old prospectors say it is a great  district, and one that before '07 will have  closed, will be as widely and favorably  known as any in West Kootenay.  SLOCAN   MINING   NEWS.  AROUND   SLOCAN   LAKE.  The owners of the Goodenougli mine in  the Slocan have, since the first of January, 180"), shipped ore, the net value of  which, according to the smelter returns,  was $lil,ri!)l.7(i.  The .Reco Mining and Milling .company,  limited, who are operating the famous  Reco mine, oue and one-half miles from  Sandon. are intending to put up'a double  rope aerial tramway and an 120-ton concentrator. In 1891 with six men, ore to  the value of $7,500 was taken out. of this  mine, in ISO.") with from eight to twenty  men, $11,787; last year with 50 men. $02,-  018, and up to date this year, $121,000.  They ship a carload, or 20 tons, every two  days, which brings in $-1,000 net profit.  One carload cleared $10,000. The ore is  produced from a lead which does not average more than four inches of clear ore.  Ainsworth Getting Another Innings.  Toronto Telgram : Since the discovery  of the-Slocan, the Lardo-Duncan and  Trail, and the booms that followed each  in succession, Ainsworth, the pioneer  camp of West Kootenay, was we'll  nigh forgotten. Scarcely a capitalist, surveying party, or an expert visited the  camp from 1802 until the fall of 1800. Several were in during August, September  and October, but nothing was done until  N. Clarke Wallace bonded the Little Phil.  Since that time the place has been  crowded with moneyed men and their experts. Mines are selling, claims are being  bonded and new development i.s being  started every day.  Kugincer Perry, of the Canadian Pacific,  has started work on the new wharves  and buildings to be constructed on the  lake at Roseberry, New Denver, Slocan  City. Silverfou find Ten Mile. Gangs of  men are to start workr.at Roseberry and  New Denver at once, and when these  places are provided with suitable wharfage accommodation for the big boat then  the other points will receive their attention. The wharves at Roseberry and  Slocan City will be about 70 feet long by  ���SO or 10 in width, and will be provided  with an apron two feet below low water  to permit of the landing of the large  transfer barges that are to transport  eight passenger coaches between the two  points. Work on the barges has not yet  begun, but as soon as the new boat is set  afloat work on them will be started. Engineer Perry says there will be no Jet up  until all the proposed improvements on  the lake are finished, and that the C. P. R.  contemplates making things lively in the  Slocan lake distriet.  The provincial parliament has made an  appropriation of $-1,000 for a road up Four  Mile creek from Silverton, to accommodate the shipping mines in that vicinity.  Should this amount prove insufficient the  mine owners will complete the road at  their own expense. There are a number  of mines on Four Mile sufficiently developed to ship ore when the road is completed. Several of them have already  made shipments. The mines to be directly  benefited are the Prescott, Wakefield,  Iteed & Robinson, Jenny Lind, Vancouver  Group, Fisher Maiden, Thompson and  Flower Queen, and a number of other  prospects.  The prospectors of Brandon, Slocan  City and vicinity held a meeting last  week in Brandon, the purpose of which  was the establishment of a bureau of information for the use of capitalists who  desire to make investments in the surrounding country. Samples from the various properties will be secured and the  bureau placed in charge of some well informed person.  News from New -Denver is that the  frozen body of Francisco de Michelli, an  Italian miner, -15 years.old, was found on  Tuesday on the Trail up Ten Mile creek.  He was packing provisions to his claim,  and had got within 200 yards of his cabin.  His pack was still attached to his back-  and weighed 150 pounds.  The Payne mine is looking remarkably  well. l:p to the 20th of the present  month 800 tons of ore had been shipped  from the property. In this group there  are 800 feet of continuous ore in the two  tunnels, drifts and upraises.- On the 23d  hist, 'the showing in the Maid of Erin  tunnel was three feet of ore and the vein  was widening rapidly. The crusher i.s  working in good shape and has made a  saving of $1,000 a month. Kighty men  are employed.      '  The Slocan Boy has been purchased by  a Winnipeg syndicate, and all work now  being done is on the main or Washington  lead. On Thursday last a hoisting plant  was ordered which, when installed, 'will  be capable of hoisting 1,500 pounds at a  load when the 500-foot level is reached.  The Noble Five is only running about  one-half capacity, owing to scarcity ot  water, but the soft weather melting the  snow will enable them, to run to better  advantage.  Lack of water is interfering somewhat  with the running of the Slocan Star mill.  The mine, however, is'being .worked, to  nearly its full capacity. \  The syndicate operating the Galena  Farm has ordered a four-drill compressor.  The Washington mine will in all probability start up within a month. The  Best is looking well,'and the late work  has shown up a large body of high grade  ore. At present only sample carloads of  ore are being shipped.  About 80 tons of ore is being shipped  from the Ruth, mine daily. The owners  are building a bin alongside the track to  enable them to ship ore in bulk instead of  sacking. A gravity tramway will be installed this spring. It is 1500 feet from  the mine to the track.  The Ttobin. Humming Bird and Wild  Swan, three mineral claims in Whitewater basin, have been sold, it is reported,  to Vancouver parties, but the terms have  not been announced.  Herbert Cuthbert has transferred to  the British Canadian Gold Fields .Exploration and Development company, of  which he is the western manager, the  mineral claim Voyageur, situated about  three miles north of the Ten Mile house.  It is a re-location of the Trapper ground,  and said to be promising.  William Clinstre, Thomas Shotboltand  Laurence Goodacre, well known residents  of 'Victoria, have become interested in a  group of claims on the south side of Kaslo  creek, about (me mile from what was  known as the Ten Mile house. A. I).  Williams, of Sandon, seems to have negotiated the transaction.  .lames C. Ryan, manager of the Antonio mine, has bonded from Edward  Jameson a three-quarter interest in the  mineral claim, Gicat Northern, on the  east side of White Grouse mounjain. He  gets an option to purchase for $7,00U, paying $800 cash, and the balance spread over  nearly two years, or until the Mth December, 1808." He will begin work upon  the property as soon as  possible in   the  spiing.    It is said to' be very promising,  and likely to repay developing.  The London If ill company has acquired  the final interest in the Bullion and .Mayflower, near the London mineral claim,  from  W. H. Cain, through  the manager.  F. Steele has arranged for the purchase  of Matt Oledo's, Matt Erickson's and Chris  Bjerkness' claims in the Whitewater, viz:  Maky, Empy, Stockholm,' Ceala, Acme,  Ampy, Mountain Goat and Ewala, but  whether for the "Ibex" Co. or the "Florence" Co. is not known.    .  The president of the Silver Bear Mining  and Concentrating Co. and a provincial  land surveyor recently surveyed their  claim Silver Bear. ' In so doing they  staked two fractional claims between others. They recorded them, Silver Bear  fraction and Bear's Paw fraction, transferring one to the other, and finally  bonded one.to 0. G. Labaree.  Certificates oi improvement have been  granted to Josiah Thompson, Jr., on  the  Nicolot and Snelling, in the Hot Springs  camp.  o Dr. Livers and L. A. Lemon have made  a sale of the mineral claims Lotus and  Duplex, located on the North Fork of  Woodbury creek, about a mile from Kootenay lake. .1. Cinch Flanders, of Portland, Oregon, was the purchaser and the  consideration $8,000 for each claim. They  are said to be of considerable promise, and  the sale an advantageous one for the parties interested.  The Liberal mineral claim, which is situated in .Jackson basin and next to the  Northern Belle group, formerly owned  by Robert Jackson, has been sold by Andrew Jardine, of this city, to lien Norman, of Spokane. The claim is well situated and said to be promising.  Several well known business men of  Victoria have lately been acquiring mining interests in Hie Slocan. AVilliam  Christie. Lawrence Goodacre and Thomas  Shotbolt have acquired the Eva May  mineral claim from A. D. Williams, of  Nanaimo, and the flattie L. from W. K.  Leighton, of Nanaimo. The claims are  located about a mile from what, was formerly known as .McDonald's ten mile  house, on the south side of Jvaslo creek,  adjoining the Black hiils.  SHORT   BITS   OF   NEWS   FROM   KASLO.  The- estimates, brought dowu. by ,thn  provincial government show a grant of  $-1000 to build and equip a new school  house in the city. The present edifice is  overcrowded, and the new building will  come none too soon. The city council will  contribute an acre and a half of ground  for a site, and it is hopedthat the citizens  ���will contribute sufficient funds to level  and prepare the ground so that it may  serve as recreation ground for the children and leave the entire vote to be devoted to the structure.  W: S. Drewry. recently in charge of the  phototopographieal survey, has severed  his connection with the lands and works  department and opened an oflice as a provincial land surveyor. /'  The improvement of the Lardo-Duncan  river between Kootenay lake and Mauser  Jake, is being stead ily pushed by the crew,  of which R. S. Gallop is the foreman.  Gallop was in the "city on Thursday and  reports that about half the distance between the lakes has been covered. The  sweepers have been removed and the  'shags, blown off by dynamite at a considerable depth below low water mark. The  concave bank of the river has "also been  cleared for a distance of ten feet so as, to  prevent timber from falling into the river  by the attrition of the bank. The whole  work, when .-'efficiently 'performed, will  greatly facilitate the movements of miners and prospectors going into the Duncan river country- -and there is likely to  be a considerable movement in that direction during the coming suiumer.'  Thomas Garvie, who has, for several  years been well and favorably known iu  the Ainsworth and Slocan .mining camps,  left for Minneapolis on Wednesday morning last, and i.s likely to remain.  Robert Strathern and Miss Bell have let  a contract to 1). C. McGregor for the'construction of a large building upon the lot  owned by them on Fourth street, adjoining the Olympia. It will have two stores  on the ground floors, while the upper  story will be divided into rooms and lias  already been leased to the proprietor of  the adjoining lodging house. The owners  will themselves occupy the stores.  Judge Forin was to have held a session  of the small debt court in Kaslo on Thursday last, but enquiries did not elicit the  fact- that any preparations had been made  for the session. Certainly no intimation  had been given at the city offices that the  council chamber would be needed for the  purpose. ' .   i.  The mild weather and rains towards  the close of last week was the cause of  many slides iu the mountains. One slide  in an unusual place in the timber on tho  Surprise trail, wa.s attended by a fatal  result. J.'imos Edwards and Tingley Anderson were conducting a pack train, and  when they got into tiie timber thought  themselves safe from the dangers which  had threatened them. But suddenly the  slide came upon thorn, bearing them  down. Anderson was hurled beneath tho  snow anrl smothered, while Edwards was  borne against a tree and had his thigh  bone dislocated and ankle badly sprained.  Injured as he was, his indomitable  pluck  and determination were , equal to the  effort of dragging himself back to the  trail. ��� He was found by the rescuing  pirly, thoroughly . benumbed, but con-  s..'ious. His dislocated thigh has been set  and he is said to be resting easily; Anderson's relatives live in Minneapolis, and  in response to a telegram his father, wires  that he will come on to take charge of the  body. , , ' .  It appears that'because of some informality the action in which city clerk Chip-  man was summoned to appear before  Judge Forin at Nelson upon thecomplaint  of Alderman Buchanan, lapsed. A new  information has, therefore, been laid by  the alderman, and the clerk has been  summoned to appear today,(Friday) at  the council chamber by justice of the  peace Stone. The ease will doubtless be  heard by Judge Forin and hotly contested, as a rigorous defense will be made.  intelligence has been received here  from the relatives of Charles L. Arnold  that he has been very seriously ill at the  home of his parents near Manchester.  He will return to British Columbia as  soon as his health will permit.  Major Montgomery, president of the  Washington Mining company, left for  Spokane on Friday morning. He goes'  out to secure ��� further treatment for a  trouble in one eye. which he had hoped  had been cured by a slight surgical operation performed while last in that city.  The board of revision for hearing and  determining appeals against the assessment roll, as recently prepared and promulgated, will sit on Wednesday, the  5th day of May next, and thence from  time to time until all the appeals are disposed of. The council has not yet determined upon the members of the board,  which must be chosen from amongst  themselves.  The older hotels of the city are receiving a general overhauling and refurnishing. The Slocan is being repapered, the  Ottawa is getting a new coat of paint,  and the Leland is being papered, recti r-  peted, and generally overhauled from top  to bottom. Thus is the city being made  to present a new and  fresh  appearance  A variety entertainment, ball and supper will be given at an early day by the  fire brigade, which the boys propose to  make successful, it dilligent application  and practice can bring about so desired a  result.    - - STEADILY   INCREASING.  TWO   FULL   TICKETS.  * Backed  The Mineral Exports For April  May Exceed  Those of March.  During the past week there was entered  at the 'port of Nelson for export ore and  matte of the value of $200,330, of which  $212,-:!85 was entered during the first three  days of the present month. The value of  the mineral exports for the month of  March .is given by collector Johnstone as  $077,081, wliich is the highest in the history of West Kootenay. These figures  do not include the ore exported from the  Slocan via Revelstoke during the month.  For the first seventeen days of 'March the  Sloean ore entered at Revelstoke was valued at $51,702. This amount will bring  West Kootenay's mineral exports for  March up to $732/173, with the Revelstoke  entries for the remainder of March to be  added, ft may be taken that the complete returns will show a grand total of  $800,000.

A. lively rate war is now on between the  Canadian Pacific, Great Northern, Northern' I'acific, and incidentally the Grand  Trunk railway, for possession of the passenger business in Kootenay district. The  situation at present is that all the lines  are now cutting on the western business.  The Grand Trunk nominally is notcutting,  but through connection with the Great  Northern, which, it is claimed, is doing  the cutting, the result is tho same. The  rates of the Canadian I'acific have been  met by the other three lines.  Plowing Up Minos.  Prospecting with plows is the latest innovation in mining, and was introduced a  few days ago in what is known as the  "Stringer" district, near Randsburg, Cal.  They use a large plow with eight horses,  and plow furrows across the claim. The  soil is a decomposed granite, and by crossing two or three times in each place several stringers were uncovered.  Mining by Queensberry Rules.  Lord Sholto Douglas, Lady Ross and  the Marchoness of Stafford have purchased free; miner's licenses at New Westminster. The first named eccentric, like  Ids famous lather, (he Marquis of Queens-  berry, litis been Hitting from camp to  camp with a dingy blanket and kit on his  aristocratic shoulders.  Each of the Mayoralty Candidates is.  By an Aldermanic Slate. . .  Provided no changes are made there  will be two mayoralty candidates in the  field on Thursday next, and twelve aspirants for aldermanic honors. The candidates for tho oflice of chief magistrate  are John Houston and John A. Turner.  Both of them are old residents of Nelson  and each may be given tho credit for having done what he could in the past to  further the interests of the town. Tin-:  Thihuvk inclines to the candidature of  John Houston, for the reason that he is  the older resident of the two, and in its ,  opinion has done more for the city of Nelson than has his opponent. It is not necessary to say anything concerning the  record of John Houston. It is known to  almost every man who will be called upon  to cast his ballot on April loth.  On that day the electors will pass upon  the merits and claims of the rival candidates to the office, and The Tnim/xi"  has too great a respect for the intelligence  of the electors of the city of Nelson to imagine that it could help the cause of the  candidate of its choice by pelting mud at  or impugning the honesty of his rival.  The Trihu.ve would like to see John  'Houston returned as first mayor of tiie  city of Nelson, but'to bring about such a  thing it does not intend to advance the  argument that if John A. Turner should  be chosen that he will steal the court  house or swindle the corporation on a  water-works or electric light deal. The  interests of the corporation will be safe  in the hands of either man so far as his  honesty or foresight goes.  Each candidate will go to the poll with ���  a full aldermanic slate behind him. The  slate behind John Houston is composed of  Frank Teetzel. James A. Gilker, John J.  Malone, Frank Fletcher, Charles Hillyer  and Alex Dow. That behind John A.'  Turner will doubtless be composed of Dr.  Arthur, A. C. Buchanan, F. A. Farley,  Ed Traves, C. W. West ancl P. J. Russell.  There are good men on both tickets, but  as compared the one with the other, Tiifi  Tkiul'XIS has no hesitancy in declaring for  the former. It may be taken that the  majority of the electors will vote a  straight ticket one way or the other, but  every elector has the option if he so  wishes of voting for any six aldermanic  candidates. In any event Nelson will  have a good mayor, and with the candidates offering it should have an excellent  council.   A   GROWING   COUNTRY.

Although the tendency  has been to develop better trade relations with eastern Canada the trade with  the I'nited States has more than doubled.  From the Sublime to the Ridiculous.  Last week The Miner, in discussing the  coming civic election,-attempted to be  sublime: this week, no doubt, it will be  ridiculous. Last week its candidates-  were the unanimous choice of the property owners, who were working with but  one object���-to save the city from spoilia-  tion. This week, the candidates that are  really supported by three-fifths of the  property owners will be charged with all  manner of ridiculous shortcomings. Pity  'tis that Jowett and his man Friday can  not have their own way in all matters  that pertain to municipal, provincial and  dominion affairs.  Timber on Dominion Lands.  An order-in-council has been passed at  Ottawa, increasing the quantity of green  timber which may be cut by settlors under permit from 800 to .'i,000 lineal feet  and providing that no restriction be made  as to the diameter of burnt or fallen timber which may be used for building purposes, but that the diameter of this class  of timber to be used for timber and fencing shall not exceed seven inches inclusive.  This is on account of reports from the  crown timber agents in British Columbia, the Northwest and'Manitoba.  Australia Wants In, Too.  Whiie British Columbia's mines are  gaining headway among the people of  Canada, the I'nited States and Great  Britain, they are also securing a firm hold  upon the attention of the capitalists of  continental Fttrope, says the Toronto  World. The French government has an  agent in the Kootenays, aud the moneyed  men of Paris and Berlin are investing in  Slocan and Trail Creek properties, and  now even the far away Australian capitalists are being drawn into the boom.

It attempts to convey the impression that John Houston,  when elected, will endeavor to force the  purchase of the water and electric light  systems upon the city.    Such allegations  or insinuations are ridiculous in the face  of the fact that during the passage of the  incorporation   bill   Houston   strenuously  opposed overtures to the government of  the  water company for an enlargement  of   their   franchise   in   order   that  they  might have control of all sources of supply and thereby possess a grinding cinch  upon the citizens.    Happily the people of  Nelson had sent a  man  wilh  brains, energy and   backbone   to   represent   them  while the incorporation measure, was under consideration. Houston and the member for ihe district,  Mr. Hume, were too  smart for  the grasping  outfit, and they  frustrated these designs.    By this means  they   saved   to   the   city   the   right  to  control its own  water supply sources, besides preventing prospective rate-payers  from being robbed of many a dollar.   As  to the electric light  works, The  Miner's  candidate for mayor is a stockholder in  the company.    Is he in on the deal to sell  to the city'?   The Miner will have to follow some other lead  in order to strike a  better assay than  the above  arguments  show.    However, "such  childish and  unscrupulous methods to injure an honorable opponent would only be employed on  a paper that has had .'itch a  precarious  existence for the past'few years that it  has no standing or reputation to lose, and  is therefore utterly reckless in its assertions.   It.ma.y not be generally known to the  government, its local officials and others  interested iu mining that, prospectors are  sometimes in the habit of forming a "combine" to evade certain,of the mining regulations   and   escape   assessment   work.  The  means  resorted  to are very simple,  though  none the less effective.    A prospector stakes out a chum aud duly records  it.    He holds ib until tho lime arrives for  doing assessment work, when an abandonment is filed.    By an arrangement previously made with another party the latter  takes  up  the abandoned  claim  and  gives a bill of sale to the original'holder.  Thus  the same mineral  properties have  been held by parties for years without a  day's assessment  work   being  done.or a  dollar expended  in   development.     This  pernicious, practice should be checked at  once, ami it is the duty of the government  to.devise some means to prevent-'its continuance.. It is detrimental to the interests  of the  mineral  regions,  as  well  as  manifestly unfair to those who are willing to prosecute the business of prospecting and mining as the laws demand.    It  would  certainly  seem   that   the  mining.,  laws of British Columbia"  are sufficiently  easy forany well meaning person tocomply  with, instead of resorting  to subterfuge  and   questionable  tricks  to defeat  legal  provisions.   Tin: spectacle of the premier of Hritish  Columbia almost crying before the legislature over an item in one of the Victoria  papers, severely criticising a certain deal  he had. made, is a sad commentary on the  worldly weakness ot the great. Men in  his position are supposed to be so complacently conscious of great and wise deeds  accomplished   that   the    shafts   of    the  watchful scribe cannot find a vulnerable  spot in the armor of their serenity. The  Victoria paper has much to answer for in  thus casting aspersions upon the record  and wounding the vanity of a remarkable  statesman. The premier and. his coterie  of rare advisers may have erred at some  time in their careers. It has. in fact, been  hinted by envious or malignant'parties  that they have at different, times blundered. But why hurt their sensitive feelings by referring to those little affairs in  the public press? Although Tin-: TniRi'M*  did not see the unfeeling paragraph that  creaf ed such sobful distress in the mind  of Premier Turner, nevertheless we feel it  our duty to severely reprimand our Victoria contemporary for its thoughtless  and altogether reprehensible conduct.  In the lace of the fact that our'government is just now putting down a new  crossing at Stanley street on Baker, simple, heartfelt and enduring gratitude suggests that we should defend it against ad  comers. Carping critics will, therefore,  please take notice that this journal, considers the government of British Columbia an extraordinary aggregation of intellectual giants !  ."Tiikim* is" more- mining activity in the  " D.miiuion at the present moment than  " ever before. Finer actual results ha\e  ���' been realized in the past season than the  " most sanguine miners dared to hope for.  " In half a dozen widely separated dis-  " tricts���the Seine ftiver, the Luke of the  ���'' Woods, Sudbury, the Cariboo, the Yu-  " Icon River, and, above all, in the Koot-  " enay���mining has been carried beyond  " the experimental stage. Kacli of these  " districts has its bonanza mine, proper-  " ties of indisputable value, making large  "and regular returns to their owners.  " Any one of them may be safely capital-  " ized for the London market at millions  " of dollars. ' 1 am uot recommending  " them for that purpose, and have no  " idea of such thing being contemplated,  " but if it were, they could, I believe, shew  "as good a record as the original divi-  " dend-payers on the Rand." The London, ling., .Journal of Commerce, from  which this paragraph is taken, is one of  the most reliable publications of its class  in the world, and it is certainly gratifying to note that it can conscientiously  make a flattering discrimination in favor  of the Kootenay in summing up the richer  mineral regions.  Tin-: statement is ventured that Hero  .Jim Hemsworth was not nearly as much  hurt by the grinding of his arm in tho  windlass as he was by the poetry recently  published about him in the Rossland  Miner.     ���"',-,     '    ,' ��� :' '��� '   '  ���AccoKD.'NG to Mr. Carlyle, companies  with.a capitalization of over $700,000,000  have already been organized and registered for operating mines in British Columbia, aud this enormous sum is being  increased at the rate of $50,000,000 per  week. '' c  Harold Siclous has returned from  Victoria minus the gold commissionership  appointmeut. Probably there \vas nobody in the district except'.-Harold Selous  who imagined for a moment that the government would entertain his application  seriously.        '..---'  .. .. .  Tin-: women who are petitioning the  provincial legislature for female suffrage  should enlist the co-operation of Mrs.  Bob Fitzsimmons. She would doubtless  advise punching the members in the  wind, which would be a meritorious operation even if it didn't secure the object of  the dear old girls.  Wi'nxrcsuAV's Rossland Miner says editorially: "It should not'be forgotten that  "Xelson is in the throes of a, municipal,  "campaign as well as Rossland. One of  " the candidates for the mayoralty of our  "sister city is John Houston. All old  " timers in Kootenay will hope to see his  " faith in Xelson rewarded by his eleva-  " tion to the office he seeks. I^ew men  " indeed have done so much for Koote-  " nay as John Houston."  With the building of the Crow's Nest  Bass raihvay, the Victoria, Vancouver 6c  Kastern, and the Hedliugton 6c Nelson,  together with the railways we already  have running into this city. Nelson will  become more than ever the railway centre  and distributing point for the whole  Kootenay country. The new city starts  out with exceedingly bright prospects,  ancl another year is almost sure to see it  doubled in population.  Tin' putting down of a new plank cross-  Tug at. Stanley street by the government  is a stroke of foresight and statesmanship  that the people of Xelson are not slow to  recognize and applaud. Now that we are  about to assume self-government, our  thoughtful and ever considerate legislators tender us a street crossing in order  that wc may hereafter hold thorn in grateful remembrance, ft is a master stroke  and one sure to bring'a fitting reward to  tho superior body by whom it was conceived. Do not let us show that we lack  in a. proper appreciation of the good things  showered upon us, but rather let us walk  over this latest gift,every day and try to  feel as our beneficient government would  have lis feel," namely,- that we can be  pleased with a rattle and tickled  with a  straw.   PROSPECTS   FOR   SILVER.  Very little is being heard just now of  the political aspects of silver, which, four  months ago, were agitating the whole  world. The tariff is taking up the beginning, but the silver question will ocJ  cupy the middle'and end of the McKinley  administration in the United States. The  following from the Stilt Lake Tribune  shows pretty clearly what a hard nut the  silver question still presents for the statesmen in power to crack :  "Some of the silver papers of the east,  especially the.Philadelphia American, despair of anything being done for silver.  It cites the nature of President MeKin-  ley's cabinet appointments and thinks he  would iiot have made those appointments  had he any special interest in silver, and  looks for only a perfunctory performance  to satisfy the requirements of the republican platform. We do not fake that-  view yet, ancl shall not until we see the  kind of men appointed as embassadors to  the chief powers of Furope. If they, like  the cabinet, are made up of furious opponents to silver, we shall think the prospect is very bad. In the meantime the  project is being sneered at by the gold  press, and there seems to be a deliberate  attempt to force silver down to the lowest possible notch. If that proves the  case it is safe to say that Mr. McKinley  can never succeed himself, and that it  will be doubtful if the republican party  survives another national campaign. We  have more faith in Senator Hanna than  till the rest of them. He is a clear-headed  business man. He knows what the fight  was last year, and we do not believe he  wants any more scraps of that kind: Just  now Europe is in a fever of fear. Just  now a war is imminent there, and just  now is the time to strike: to outline an  aggressive policy, and ask France and  Germany, and England and Russia, and  Austria, to subscribe to it. There would  be no trouble with the continental  powers, only Fnghind stands in the way.  That being the case, the tariff law, when  passed, ought to be followed immediately  by a silver bill, and that silver bill ought  to include in its provisions a rebate of  tariff to all nations which will agree with  the United States in the restoration of  the white metal. Wo think Senator Wol-  cott understands this, and just now we  have more faith in what he'and Senator  Hanna will do than we have in all the  rest of those who are in the confidence of  the present administration.

The New Westminster Columbian deplores the frequent duplication of mining  nomenclature in this wise :  "In regard to the names of mines, there  ought, for the protection of mine owners,  as well a.s the public, to be some provision  to absolutely prevent the duplication of  names. For obvious reasons, lhe name of  a mine ought to be as strictly guarded  against infringement as is tho trade mark  or copyright of other concerns. Such  does not appear to be the ease, however.  For instance, there are,-we believe, in different parts of the Kootenay, two mines  with the satisfying appellation of'Good-  enough,' and two more having the frisky  name of the 'Ibex.' One I 'Goodenougli'  and one 'Ibex' are shipping mines. It is  hardly necessary to point out that the  confusion resultant from such a state of  things leaves the public, at least, open to  Canadian General Electric Company, Ltd.  Capital $1,500,000.

Tiie coincidence  may be accidental in the cases mentioned,  but Piich coincidences should be made impossible, else serious frauds will be perpetrated by unscrupulous persons deliberately duplicating names for that purpose."  If I lie Columbian was aware that these  different properties bearing the same  names are recorded in separate mining  divisions it would probably understand  the "coincidence." There are never two  properties of the same name recorded in  one mining division unless by error or  oversight, when a change of title for the  last one entered is insisted upon. It would  be almost impossible to prevent tin: same  names being used in the different record  offices unless, indeed, the government  should engage a "memory freak," with a  head like an encyclopedia to remember  them all.                    _  GRAND   OLD   MAN   OP   CRETE.  Cojta VelouclakeK. the   KaUier  of the Present  Cretan War.  Costa Yeloudakes is the grand old man  of Crete and the father of the present  revolution. He is regarded by the Cretans with boundless confidence, and in his,  capacity as president of tiie revolutionary  assembly, has been a good guide and a  great comforter to the,patriots. Yeloudakes is 00 years old, but his faculties are  as clear and his head as strong as a man  half his age. lie comes of the Ii nest Cretan families, and lias done more than any  one man to keep alive the revolutionary  feeling that has at last triumphed. lie  has taken part in all of the Cretan 1 evolutions. As long ago as 182L he was the  head of a strong force, of rebels and distinguished himself by liberating US Cretan  women who were kept prisoners in a  Turkish fortress. He has the courage of  a lion. At the battle of the Fountains in  18(i(', he was fighting at the side of his two  sous, when a bullet came along and killed  oue of them. The father did not flinch,  but ordered that the body be taken from  the field, and then resumed the battle. In  the revolution of 1878 Veloudakes was  made commander-in-chief of all the revolutionary forces on the island, and did  very weil in that capacity. He was one  of the three Cretans who went to Berlin  to be present at the drawing of the.Berlin  treaty and to represent .the side of the  Cretans iti the issues at,stake. ; ������     ��� .

Pereira Blendes of New York Writes  Forcibly in the Journal.  li' ever (Jhristianity received an undeserved slai) in tiie face, it was at the meeting nt Cooper l:nion lti.st Tliur.-jday evening, when to aii audience assembled iii the  sacied interests ol* peace and good will'  a man preached hostility and ill will, and  tried to lead thoughtless minds to follow  him. I'Yom a hungry press scribbler, or  starved' literary hack, to whom a few  of more importance than cour-  religion, such a course might,  be expected. But American  is of too sterling a <|ualicy to  allow such conduct to direct American  action. If one nation is to cherish animosity against another which once has  wronged it, or which twice or any number of times has wronged it, and bliall  cherish that animosity forever, when will  ���peace universal dawn? To what end i.s  the religion of "Peace and Good Will ?"  (Jan a nation, any more tlian tin individual, live its life without thinking or perpetrating  sonie   wrong ?   A   wrong   may  the less worthy aspect, the commercial  aspect, it i.s very poor policy for America  to foster ill will against one of her best  customers. The federation of the Anglo-  Saxon races maybe a long way oil', but  come it must, and to the advantage of  each. , Ifrmesty is the best policy and  jealousy is the worst. The common sense  of the American people will welcome any  tre'aty that can remove even one possibility of tt disturbing element in the development of its peace and prosperity. Ami  to not a few thinkers it i.s evident that  the I'nited States litis nioru to gain by an  arbitration treaty with lOngland than  lihigland has. For we are certain not to  trouble Kngland in any of her possesions.  And such a treaty will arm us against  England's aggressiveness, if she should  wi.-h to be aggressive. l>ut we live in  days when self-respecting nations do ic-  specfc treaties. And the object lesson tt)  the world wliich the arbitration treaty  will present is worth more in the interests of honor, peace and good will, right  tind religion, than all the memories of  hate tind ill-will which misguided people  urn v attempt to revive.  Ves, if Christianity, religion, is not a  failure, let tlie arbitration treaty be ratified wilh a mighty shout that shall compel the world to listen, and, witli the  blessing of heaven, to imitate.

Speak 'not.of. 1812 ! What is-1812compared  with-121"), when lOuglaud from the field of  Ruunyuiede taught the world that the  people is king, and gave to the world the  war-cry of the -Anglo-Saxon. races, the  .watchword,' "Liberty." Speak not of  , 1810. Speak, rather, of 1360, and. the score-  of years that followed, when the Englishman, WickIiff,, began the light which  gained the victory for liberty in religious  thought. , What has England done, do  you ask ? 11 was England who struck the  blow ou the block with her mighty axe  in KM9, and whose children, the .Puritans,  then wrote their first sentence in their  wonderful chapter in the world's history.  Those Puritans, how much our United  States owes them ! The echo of that axe-  stroke walked the nations. The arm and  heart that helped her to wield that axe  helped her to win little more than half a  century later, an Oudenarde, and a Ilam-  illies, a Blenlieim and a Maplaquet, by  which Europe was the gainer, as later  she brought Napoleon to the dust, he who  would'have yoked Europe to the juggernaut of his ambition ! Think what Erance,  what Europe, what the world would be  today if England had not fought France  with the swords of Marlborough and Wellington, as centuries befoie she fought  priest chains with the words of Wickliff  and the energy of Henry! Speak not of  France aud her assistance_ to us in our  moment of need when this, our nation,  wa.s born. It was not because she loved  us. .11 was because she' loved more to see  England humiliated and England' weakened. Think, also, how that England  fought the blood lust of French revolution, blood lust most unholy! Think, I  say again, how she bridled Napoleon's  aims and rescued Europe then ! Do not  we, does not the world, owe something to  her for this? What if we did arise in  J771) in the sacred name of Liberty? Who  taught us to speak that word?. It was  England���  Mother England, one in faith,  In language, ancestry, iu common much.  Of history and heritage from pens  Which have immortalized thu English tongue!  Shame, crimson shame, upon our flag if  we hesitate to make the voice of America  heard, and heard on lhe side of peace and  good will. O manliness! O religion! Are  these crushed in American hearts beneath  the pressure- of unworthy and selfish  thoughts?  I know of no words strong enough to  do justice to the theme of ueaee between  two gi eat nations, peace assured by reason and hallowed by religion.    Even from  A year or so ago, says the editor of the  London Tiuth, I took up the matter of  the royal buckhounds, i'or I always  thought that anything with less of the redeeming feature of sport than to carta  tame deer to some spot, turn it out, hunt  it down, and, having hunted it down, put  it back iu its cart for another day's  "sport" cannot well be conceived. When  1 was engaged in this crusade, I received  many lelters'assuring me that the deer  like being pursued by dogs, although how  the animals conveyed their singular idea  of pleasure to the writers of the letters  was not explained to nie. Now that the  bi.-hops have joined the crusade, we may  hope that the cruel tomfoolery of this  roya! hunt will soon cease.  The country pays the costs. The salary  of the master of the buckhounds (��1200  per annum) is always enjoyed by a nobleman, the occupant of the post chauging  with a change of ministers. Besides this  there are salaries to huntsmen, whips and  others, the purchase and keep of horses  and hounds, etc. I should suppose that  the total outlay must be about ��3000 per  annum. This is defrayed, it is true, from  the civil list. But when the amount  needed to maintain the sovereign was in-  vestigated in order to arrive at the total  necessary, this expenditure was included  in the estimate.  11. i.s suggested by the bishops that the  quarry should cease to be deer and should  henceforward be red herring. But this  ironical idea of the sovereign keeping a  lot of dogs to run after red herring does  not strike the obtuse British mind as be-  ing at all funny.  ���-. Couldn't Stick-the Old Sailor. :  Some men in a public house were inventing stories to pass the- time away.  They 'had. all had a turn at it except an  old sailor, who had remained silent all  lhe time, until pressed by the others to  spin them a yarn,    lie began:���  "I was once in a dreadful storm. All  the. provisions were washed overboard.  1 was very ill, and ate nothing for four  days; at the end of that time 1 began to  feel hungry, and the ��� steward--gave me  beef, chicken, port wine and eggs."  "But you said all  the provisions were  .washed-overboard.    Where did  the beef  come from?"  '-'".From' the   bullocks"  the old sailor.  "And where did you  from?"  "From the hatch."  "And the port wine?"  "From the port-hole." (.  "And the eggs?"  '"Eggs?" said   the sailor,  eggs, did I?"  "Oh, yes, you did," said the men  have caughtyou now."  The old sailor thought he was caught,  and had to consider.    At fast he said:  "Oh, yes; I did have eggs. The captain  ordered the ship to lay to, and he gave  me one."   -  Reflections of a Bachelor.  Ayhen a girl really doesn't believe a  thing a man says she never tells him so.  A woman does the most flirting before  she gets married, and a man does the  most afterward.  After a girl has once been told that she  has an intellectual expression she always  feels abused when he has to darn stockings.  When a gill wants to know how she  looks she stands in front of the looking  glass at tho angle that makes her neck  seem prettiest.  The woman who carries a volume of  Emerson in the street car is generally the  one who reads herself to sleep with one  of Ouida\s novels.

London, the great linancial center of  the world, for some years past has had  one of the wildest and most unreasoning  of mining eraz.es that has ever visited  that curiously gullible constituency, and  it has offered such an exceptionally profitable occasion for the shrewd and conscienceless promoter that all kinds of people, high aud low, became promoters or  "tooters" of mining companies. So great,  indeed, was the temptation to become  rich by simply gathering in the money of  fools that ti great number of ������eminently  respectable" and "conservative" individuals easily allowed the use of their names  in doubtful and sometimes in actually dishonest enterprises. While the boom wa.s  on and all were growing richer clay by  day by the simple process of marking up  the.quotations of mining stocks everything was lovely, and reputations and the  morality of business ways, especially  those that had brought fortunes, were  unquestioned. Xow, for nearly a year,,  there has been an ebb in the tide of the  Londou mining craz.e, and the strand is  found to be littered �� with wrecks, both  moral and financial. The ebb of the tide  has by no means ceased yet: indeed, it  has still a long way to fall, so that the  wrecks exposed to view today a  number compared witli what  found later on.  le few m  will    be  Mine Instead of a Well.  The owners of a Colorado sawmill  started a well to supply water for their  engine, and at a depth of Hi feet struck  pav ore and will have a mine instead of a  we'll.

The Goldendale, <>()<) feet south ol' the  Silver Kiii�� on Totul liiottntain, bids fair  to retili/.y the be^t hopes of its owncr��.  On I'Viday a vein of three feet of ore was  struck. The ore is yellow and grey copper, carrying a rich proportion of silver.  A petition to the k'KL-dature from Lhe  people of Trail, asking for roads, bridges,  and other public works was ruled out ol*  order, as calling for expenditures of public funds.  The War Kaglc is shipping to the Nelson smelter.

'  I lurry Smedley, 'a prospector, was run  over ami killed by a fieigliL train on the  Nelson 6c Fort Sheppard railway on Tuesday. In company with another young  man named Sidney II. liernard,,he was  walking on the railroad from North Fork  to Quart/ Greek, and when within tt mile  of the latter 'place, they were overtaken  about noon by lhe northbound freight.  Smedley made a grab to catch the bidder  of the lirst box car, but was knocked to  one side in the snow, wliich is so deep at  that point that he could not prevent himself from rolling back under Lhe following  cars, five of which passed over the body,  mangling it horribly. In his evidence tit  the inquest, Bernard stated that the unfortunate man was perfectly sober tit the  time, and that his impulse to catch the  train was taken so rjuickly it was itnpos- \  sible to render him tiny assistance. Harry  Smedley was well known among men of  his class in Kootenay. lie was about _8  years of age, and came to this district from  Chilliwack, where his parents reside. The  jury returned a veidict'in accordance  with the facts.  A special excursion will leave St. Louis,  Mo., for the Kootenay country on May I.  A fully cfiuipped mining and general information bureau will be on board the  train, with a special tourist to accompany  the party and explain points of interest  en route.  \V. S.

Sidney S. Taylor, Q. C, of this city, has  been gazetted a notary public.  The next assi/.c court for Nelson will be  held June 21.  Cory Menhenick of Lardeau, Ceorge T.  'Newman of Arrowhead, and Hugh Mc-  l'herson of Trout Luke, have been appointed just ices of the peace of the county  of Kootenay.  A Spokane dispatch says the No. 2 passenger on the Northern Pacific i'roni the  west arrived on time to a dot under the  new schedule Tuesday morning, reaching  Spokane at 0:30. It required but a few  minutes to transfer the passengers for the  north over to the Spokane 6c Northern  depot iu plenty of time to catch the train  for Rossland and Nelson. The passengers  were quite numerous and were well  pleased to find out that they could get  through,in one day. The Northern Pacilic.  i.s now trying to 'make arrangements with  the Spokane 6c Northern to have its  sleeper run right through to Kootenay,  points.
