THE   GROWTH   OF   THE   TOWNS  IN  THE     MINING  KOOTENAY  CAMPS  DURING  OF     SOUTH  1892.  K.3.3I0 Heads the List "With $109,300 Expended  in New Buildings and Improvements; Nelson Comes Next With $94,150; Pilot Bay  Comes Third, Ainsworth Fourth, New-  Denver    Fifth,   and   Nakusp   Sixth.  More money was expended in building  up towns in South Kootenay during JN92  than was expended iu actual mine  development. At first thought this may  appear to the district's disadvantage; but  it tlie conditions existing during the year  are carefully inquired into, it will be  found that the towns are nob growing at  the expense of the mines. If the mines  are worked, tlie people who work them  must bo housed and furnished witli supplies, and today there are lew empty  ' business houses or dwellings in either of  tlie towns in the district. While mining  operations in Toad Mountain district were  at a standstill awaiting the completion of  the Silver King sale. Nelson has steadily  progressed, because of its being a central  location for business and a desirable place  Ior residence. Kaslo's growth was owing  entirely to its favorable location to the  mines in Slocan district, and today it has  not enough buildings to accommodate the  people expected there in the early spring.  The money expended at Pilot Bay was on  account of the reduction works being  built there, tind should, in part, be credited to mine development. The growth  of New Denver and Nakusp, like that of  Kaslo, was brought about by the Slocan  mines. Ainsworth. Balfour, Trail Creek;  and Robson did not make great progress,  but neither did the mining districts back  of them.    Kaslo.  The first day of last April the "'city" of  Kaslo consisted of one house, which by a  stretch of the facts may be said to have  been completed. This structure was the  buildingknownas Kano'shotel. The front  portion of Green Brothers' store and the  frame for a small portion of the Grand  Central hotel were s artod.' During the  summer building operations ceased for  several weeks, yet the following descriptions and array of figures show that  the building record of Ktislo is not to  be sneezed at from the first of April,  JS92, until .Januarv 1st, 1893.

VIEWS   OP   A   PROSPECTOR  TheiTracle of South Kootenay is in the Hands  of Canadians.  On his return to the coast from Slocan  distric';, whore he is interested in mining  property, 13dward Mahon of Vancouver  was interviewed. In speaking of the  trade of the mining cant]).-, in South Kootenay, he.sttited that "at present it is all iu  the hands, of merchants on the other side  of the line [meaning the" United States]:  or, at all events, the bul'c of it.'"  Tiik  Tkibunk,  in   refuting statements  made by the  Vancouver press in the in-  .terost of the Canadian   Pacific   railway,  lias stated that the merchants  Kootenay  purchased   the  bulk  goorls in eastern',Canada,  and  communication   the   year   round   would  make (.0 per cent of   their purchases   in  Canada.   On the completion of tlie Nelson  &  I<Y>rt   Sheppard   railway,   tho   mining  camps in South Kootenay will have direct  rail  connection  with Montreal. Toronto.  Hamilton, and Winnipeg, in the east, and  Victoria, Vancouver, anel Sew Westminster, in the west, and for every carload of  merchandise    landed    from    the   United  St.tes there will be twenty landed from  Canada.   But newspaper statements are  110 more worthy of belief than the statements of individuals unless backed up by  evidence.   The following is the evidence  on which Tin-:   Tiiii.uxh. bases its statements:  chants in South Kootenay are nearly all  Canadians, and naturally buy iu Canada  where'they are acquainted; but those  who are Americans find tluit goods must  be bought in Canada to be sold ata profit.

Shay, dwelling  10<l  As to the Changes Needed in the Mineral  Act. ���  From the many complaints that J have  heard from prospectors, it would seem  "that the present way of staking-mineral  claims does not give satisfaction. Many  prospectors are not in favor of such large  claims, while, on the other hand, a few  think that the 52-acre claims woulel be all  right were the stakes placed on the ledge  instead of away to one side. If the present law with regard to the size of the  claims should remain unaltered then some  other form of slaking would be necessary  in order to avoid trouble and confusion.  For it has already been proved that the  present way of staking leads to litigation  and trouble, as everyone knows that the  Anderson-Hayes dispute at Slocan. last  spring, had to be decided in court at Nelson.  .Prospectors who arein favor of the 1500-  foot square claim maintain that everything would be right if the stakes were  placed on the supposed course of the ledge,  with a blazed line between (if in timber)',  and a statement on each stake as to how  far the side boundaries of the claim were  from the staked or blazed line. Even this  system admits of much abuse, for a locator can suppose a ledge to run most anywhere. The majorityof prospectors, however, are still in favor of the old way of  staking claims, as in the law of 1S91, viz.,  1500 feet long by 000 feet wide, with the  .privilege to follow the ledge in all its  spurs,'clips, and angles.  The average prospector isneitherapubl.c  speaker nor a newspaper correspondent,  and is very seldom heard from in either  capacity, as.an advocate'of reforms, much  preferring to .leave such matters to our  wise legislators, who never seem to tire of  mixing and mincing our minera.l anel land  .laws. It'would seem as though our law  makers needed some practical assistane in  the framing of suitable mining laws.' If  our legislators are not able'in.themselves  to formulate a code of mining laws that  will not need changing from year to year,  then they had better call in the assistance  of the practical prospector not the man  who calls himself one because he is the  happy possessor of a free .miner's certificate, but the man who follows prospecting  for a living. Let thee .be a commission  of practical pros ectors appointed to  assist our legislators in remodeling and  framing a- suitable code of mining laws;  let these men be selected without fear or  favor from the different mining camps of  the province; and let the report and decisions of this commission be accepted as  final. It would be much better, however,  if our legislators could formulate a suitable code of mining laws without the  assistance of any outsiders, but it seems  that they cannot do so.  The New Denver Townsite.  Advices received from Victoria, are in  effect that the commissioner of lands and  works is in tt dilemma over the Sew Denver townsite. He believes the McGillivray  wtis the first locator, but he is also a'ware  that Far-well is it friend of the "government;" hence the dilemma. The long  delay iu arriving at a decision is a. great  injustice to the residents of New Ucnver  and to the people who purchased lots at  the govennment stile, and the commissioner, as an upright official, which he  undoubtedly i.s, owes it to himself to  speedily put an end -to the present suspense.  The Nakusp Sleigh Road.  Hugh Madden came down from Nakusp  last Friday, and reports the sleigh road  from that place to the head of Slocan  lake in good condition. There is but one  team on it, hauling goods for Bourne  Bro.'s of Sew Denvev. Ilngh Mann's outfit of twelve horses arrived at Slocan  Crossing from Winnipeg on Tuesday.  They will lie taken up the trail to the  lower end of the lake, aud thence by  steamer to Four Mile and the head of the  hike. Mr. Mann has a. contract to haul  several hundred tons of ore from mines  on Four Mile to Nakusp.  ? 10,500 W. V.

If the books of the navigation  company were a I. Nelson, the aggregate  tonnage of the shipments originating in  Canada, as against the aggregate originating in flic United States, could be  given.

In commenting on the slowness of Canadians totaketid vantage of the opportunity  offered them to get in ou the ground floor  iu the mines in 'West Kootenay and  the apparent unwillingness of the Canadian Pacific to tap the mining-districts  with bi-jwiches, the Revelstoke Starsjiys:  "If Vancouver had had the least bit of  common sense it would mouths ago lut-ve  reached for the trade of West Kootenay.  which in less than three yetirs time will  be of enormous proportions, and will build  up the terminal city far gre.-tter than the  railwav thev have decided to present with  $;.()0,0( .(land which will only take I heir trade  away.

There is undoubtedly  great wealth in the mines of tho district,  and just as undoubtedly will great danger be incurred in working these mines.  The  sides of the  mountains   nearly all  ���  slope at an angle of -15 degrees, and as  long as snow falls there  will   be  snow-  slides.     Last   week  several  came down,'  one of them  killing two men aud doing  much  damage to  property, another came  within  an ace of killing a  man at Bear  Lake City, and the creek bottoms from "a- '  point on  Cody creek  down to within a -..  mile  tind'a half of Sandon creek are covered  in places to a depth of 100 feet with  debris  from slides  that came  down   the '  Noble Five. Bico, anrl other gulches.  On Tuesday of hist week superintendent  Springer of the Freddy Lee warned his  outside men that slides were likely to  come down at iiny time because of the  snow thawing, but the warning was not  heeded by the two men that were hurled  into eternity ;i few hours afte'rwarcls. ���  They were sack ing cjre between the mouth  of the tunnel and the blacksmith shop,  jind weve advised to go into the tunnel  anrl sack ore there. . One of the men cm-  ployed in the tunnel when in the blacksmith shop after tools heard the slide  coming, and with the blacksmith ran  back to the funnel, warning the.two men  that were killed of their danger. They  evidently were afraid of being buried in  the tunnel, as they apparently made no  effort to follow the other two.' The slide  carried away part of the blacksmith shop,  part of thestorehou.se. aud damaged the,  tramway. Several hundred tons of ore  jind four carcasses of beef were carried  down in the snow, anrl in the spring "float"  will be found scattered from the tunnel  mouth to the south side of Cody creek, a  distil nco of ii mile.  Jaines   F.    Wardner.    manager of   the  property, was   in   Kaslo  when  the news  reached   there.    He was much  distressed  over the untimely death, of two of his employees.

The commission, that revised the mining law of this province in 1890 endeavored  tc. make the law so plain that litigation  would be reduced to the minimum, even  if tlie legal fraternity suffered, lhe mining committee at tlie ast session of the  house also had the same object in view  when they recommended tlie change  from the obi. ng to the sqi are location,  confining the owner of ground to only  the mineral found within lines vertically  extended downwards. But it seems  neith.r the com mission nor the committee foresaw the harvest that lawyers  would reap through section 89, a section  tluit should never have been incorporated  in the law. The section may have been  necessary in the settlement of disputes  arising in the working of placer claims by  "companies" or '"���partnerships," but is  unnecessary and unworkable in quartz  claims. Aside from doing the annual assessment work, no co-owner in a claim  should be forced into doing development  work, for it is dif'/ictt t to determine  whether the work done by the majority  owners in a claim is really development  work or work to force the minority own-  crs to sell at the majority owner.,' fig... ve.  It often happens tluit minority owners  are "���hoggish" in their demands when a  sale is in prospective, but that is no reason why they should be "froze" out o'"  their interests'altogether by their equally  "hoggish" partners. Thr Thiiu'nk takes  the stand that litigation retards the development of a count y. anrl it would  chronicle with pleasure the advent of the  day when ex'evy lawyer in West Kootenay district would be forced by plainly  worded statutes to seek a livelihood at  some calling other than one that engen  dors bad blood letween neighbors.

Ore can be shipped from New Denver to  Nakusp for $15 a ton, and Lhe steamboat  company will carry all the ore that is  placed at the latter point during the  winter. Owners of mines��� who have not  already entered into contracts to ship via  Kaslo had better consider these figures,  especially when it is remembered that  ore from the Freddy Lee could be brought  here on raw hides for !j.7.'">0 per ton.

The Alpha group, the Reid & Robinson group, the Mahan  claims, the Anderson group, the Grover & Stevenson group, and more than fifty single  locations are in the camp, all carrying ore that assays up in the hundreds of ounces per ton.  At the mouth of Four Mile creek is a splendid site for reduction works, where, if erected, a  smelter would be within easy distance of all the mines in Slocan district. The owners#of the  land at the mouth of the creek have had a part of it surveyed for a townsite, and as an  inducement for the erection of reduction works will place in trust, as a bonus, one-half of all  sums received from the sale of lots up to $50,000.

HATK OI'* INTKItKST (at present) FOUit I'erCent.  THE   SAVINGS   OP   WORKINGMEN.  Management  of   Loan    Associations,   Savings  Banks, Etc.  It is reported  that in   many  parts oi'  - England and AVales worldnginen's institutions,- which  combine banking and building operations, are becoming bankrupt,  chiefly through   mismanagement or dishonesty.   In England there are 2700 building societies,  the liabilities off which exceed ��30,000,000, many of which are known  to be insolvent.  - By the side of those fallen institutions  .should be placed the cooperative societies  \n distribution and production in Great  "Britain  whicli are managed entirely by  the workingmen themselves.    These have  been  eminently successful,   and   a  xev\,  . large  proportion  of  the earnings of the  working classes of Great Britain are now  invested in this manner.  In New York, New England, Ohio, and  Michigan, and many other States, savings  banks have been the principal institutions'  'for the savings, of the working classes.  These institut ons, as a whole, have had a  splendid history. The directors arc  usually persons who have a sincere regard  for the working classes, and anxious only  for the proper management of the institutions under their control.  In making loans, security rather than the  largest profits'has-been'the ruling idea.  In a few cases directors .have betrayed  their trust by lending the funds of the  institution to their friends or utilizing  them for their Own personal ends, but  examples of this kind have been,-happily,,  rare. Several laws have been enacted to  restrain them from wrong doing, and, so,  in spite of their numbers failures have  bggii very rare. The annual interest is  low, but it is' paid with great regularity,  j\nc}, iii thp long run, sayings bank depo.si-  tpi'.i liayp, pprliaps, gViiiipd'as much from  tlu.ii''investments asordinary investors.  In Pennsylvania building and loan associations liave largely taken the place of  savings banks. It is true tluit a few  banks of this character exist in the State,  and have been managed with great  prudence and success. But building and  loan associations have had a singularly  successful history. Seyenty million dollars or more are at present invested in  them, and they have been made the subT  -ject of careful legislation.  In other States such institutions have.  had quite a different history. Too often  they have proved a failure, .and one reason' is, ��� as\in the case of.the building societies of Great Britain, they have not  been' maiihged by the workingmen in  their own interests.  One lesson to be drawn from these facts  is that investors should be slow in adopting new methods. Especially should  those who have acquired the experience  necessary to the profitable management  of their own funds be wary about committing them to the management of  others. ...  AuQtlier lesson to be clrtiwn from these  facts js~ that the selection of honest and  c{i.pable men is of far more consequence  tjiiW'the 'liatun) of the- mechanism employ pel for nu|k jng money. The miserable  r'pcoi'cl ()f the g<.)t-rich-quick associations  that have been launched in such large  numbers in this country in the last few  years, to float a few weeks or months and  then disappear, shows that thoy were designed by bold, bad men, who make as  much out of them as possible and then  sink them.  Good machinery and good legislation  counts for s .met'.iing ii busi ew,'as it  does in government, but not for all. _ It is  never so important as honest and efficient  men. Nevertheless, evary effort should  be made to surround our savings banks,  building and loan associations, and all  other banking institutions which every  safeguard of legislation can provide.

It is  stated that on  a sheep  run of (.0,000 to  .0,000 acres,. 10,000 kangaroos were killed  mnually for six consecutive years,  and  vet their number remained   very formidable in the locality,    in the colony of  South Australia hundreds of thousands of  kangaroos are slaughtered  annually  for  "jheir skins and the bonus offered by the  iiithorities.   The'number of these niar-  ���upials in New South Wales in 1880 was  jstimated   to  be over 4,000,000,  and yet  about  a.   million   kangaroos   and 050,000  -vallabies were destroyed  in  the colony  in  that year.    A bonus of   10 cents  for  _ach kangaroo  killed   is offered  in Aus-  .ralia; hence the colonists are gradually  exterminating     these     native    animals.  )ver half a- million skins are annually exported to England, and a large number to  North   America,   to    be   converted    into  eather.

It seems to have come to her knowledge  that the project was being pushed forward with an excess of zeal that caused  its promoters to demand subscriptions  almost as a. right,' and that some not unnatural discontent had thereby been  aroused. All soreness caused by the.too  effusive loyalty of the leaders of the movement has, however, been allayed by the  graceful letter in .which the- princess has  begged that any money collected should  be devoted to "some purpose beneficial to  the country, that country whose weal and  woe will now be also mine." Pier suggestion . that the offering should take the  shape of "some charitable institution  ministering to the necessities of the time"  will doubtless be carried out, and the  Roumanian people could not possibly  offer, nor could the young princess accept  ii. worthier or a better tribute.

Extensive Improvements  Now Completed.  ___   Pennsylvania    Family    Which    Runs    to  Justices of the Peace.  New York Sun: In Bedford county,One  of the old agricultural counties of Pennsylvania, there is a family' which for a continuous record in officeholding it would be  hard to surpass. It is doubtful if even  Ltlngland, where the county oflices are  handed down in many cases from father  to son, there is a record which beats the  record of the Adams family in Bedford  county.  A few years after the revolutionary  war, in 1791, the first Adams was elected  justice of peace of Southampton township, Bedford county. He served without interruption from 1.704 to -1830. He  retired then tind was succeeded by his son  William Adams,--who died last month at  his home near Chaneysville, Bedford  county, at the age of 87.  William Adams served as justice of the  peace from 18*30 to 1885, except one term,  when he was defeated by James Elder.  He retired in 1.885, and he was succeeded  by his son, John H. P. Adams, who was'1  reelected in 1890, and will serve until 1890  if he lives. This will make a service as  a justice of the peace'of Southampton  township, Bedford county, of ninety-six  years, continuous except for one break.  The office was handed cIoavii from grandfather to father and son.  The people of the toAvnship take pride  in this record, and they want to keep on  reelecting'one of the Adamses as long as  the family lasts. Any other candidate is  rarely mentioned, and the ollice i.s kept  out of politics. Most of the people regret  that there was a break at all and that the  service of justice of peace of this family  could not run to a. hundred years without  interruption, it is doubtful if there is anything approaching this record anywhere  else in the United States. Thepopulation  of Bedford county is composed chiefly of  the lineal descendents of the people who  settled it in the last century. There have  been a great many changes through descendents of the old settlers moving from  the country; but, while there has been  some immigration, there has notbeena corresponding influx of people to take their  places. In Southampton township there  are people who have lived under the justice of the peace administration of the  .three Adamses.   The Legend of Thorhatten.  Thorhatten, the famous Norwegian  mountain, has a hole ext tiding entirely  through from one side to the other.  According to a Norwegian legend this  same Mount Thorhatten was once a hat  and belonged to Thorg, hence the name  Thorghatten. Itseeins that in the mythical ages a giant and giantess fell violently  in love with each other. They were forced  to part for a. time, but vowed that they  would marry in the near future. Soon  after, however, the fickle woman pledged  troth to another. This angered her giant  lover to a degree unknown to modern men  of smaller stature. He was seventy miles  from her when the ell's brought the news,  but selecting a god arrow he shot it in  her direction.   Now, it*happened that the  Perils of Logging in the Rockbound Streams  of the Northwest.  Sioux City Journal:   Tragic deaths are  not uncommon on the rivers of the northern woods.    A dramatic one was that of  Donald Monroe,  the foreman of a "driving"   crow  ou the Michigaumcc,  only a  year   ago.    "Driving"   on   these    small,  rocky   streams   is   a   terribly dangerous  business when the floodgates are let loose  in the spring.   At that season the river  becomes a roaring torrent, hemmed in by  steep, rocky banks, and the jams that the  men have to break would make the ordinary man gray-haired on the first night  he had to pick out the key logs, knowing  the whole weight of the river lay dammed  up   above   the  jam,   which  the floating  bark and driftwood had made into a thoroughly impervious barrier.'   It  was jam  after jam from   the   headwaters   down,  and by the middle of May there wasn't a  man in the crew but said he'd never go on  the   river   again.    Half   way down  the  river and -within twelve miles of Pembina  was   a  fall  of something like sixty-five  feet at a straight drop.   The logs became  lodged  iu the rocks on the crest of the  fall and an ugly jam piled up behind. Our  boss ordered all the married men ashore,  and led us youngsters out on the crest of  the fall to break the jam.    While he was  up iu front the logs began to move and,  with  a sudden shock,  both he and  the  crew   were   swamped  beneath the  falls.  Five of us got out all right,  but Monroe  was picked up dead on the rocks  below,  shoul-  his head torn completely from hi  dors by the rushing logs, A young  woman to whom he was engaged came  up from Marinette. About the first thing  she saw was Monroe's head where it had  stranded among the stones. She threw  herself down upon..it. and was instantly  killed. The crew carried both her body  aud that of her lover down in the "bat-  tea'u, and to this day you will hear the  story sung around the campfire at night  to one of those weird tunes of which the  lumbermen are so. fond.

Mr. Martin was determined that in tweh-e mouths tt more suitable and permanent house of worship  should take its place. There are no serious  doubts but what his plans will mature.
