 East an6 lilest Kootenay  Have   Better Showings   for Mines  than   any  other Sections on  the Continent  of America.  FIRST   YUAR.-XO.---  (Dapital anu Brains '  Can   Both   be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining Camps of East and  West  Kootenay.  XHLKON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,  THURSDAY,  JULY  2).  S!)  PRICE  TEN  CENTS.  THERE   IS   HOPE   AHEAD.  Many of the Mines of Slocan Will Pny Should  Prices Not Advance.

Suppose the ore is-si Ivor mid lend Lie.ar-  ing. avernges 100 ounces in si Ivor and 70  per cent lend. The smelter deducts ~>  per cent of the I'ornier. iind 10 percent  of the littler metal to make np for mechanical loss. .Seventy per cent load would  equal I-HJO pounds to the ton. less 10 per  <-..';nt, loaves I2t;0 pounds, at a market price  say of $."..,V) -tin.' latest quotation ,-it Inind  ��� equals $-1-1.7.'). Ninety-live ounces silver  at. 72 eenlsaniounts to $0S.-I0, which added  to the lead value make a total of $1 b'i.lo  pur ton in the ore when laid down at lhe  smelter.  Now for the expenses: Suppose the ore  was from lhe Slocan district. The following figures ai e given as approximate:  Slicking of ore, per tun    .   - Si :">'j  Ti.iii.s|>.irliilii_iil to K_i-.li>, |ht Inn    ii Ki  'r.'ititaporl.il ion to -mclii-r. |u-r ton    H W  liuty on lit)i leml. per ton       i\ (m  Smell iiitjeh.-irsfi's. per Ion I- (It)  bor Dry gulch, side by side, which in the  aggregate have produced at least $20,0(10,-  000. prove this   fact..    Nol lung in the way  of quartz was over found at the head of or  uir (he  sidi-s  of Dry-gulch, while at the  upper end of Lust Chance uuleh Whitlach  I'nion, a quart/, vein produced upwards of  four million dollars iu free gold. Tho Penobscot mine. located on t he summit of the  main   range, of  the   Hocky   mountains. 21  miles west, of Helena, contained one chimney of gold-bearing rock from which $101.-  (KKJ was taken   while sinking a shaft sixty  feet in  depth.    This  body or'chimney of  ore  came clour up to the. grass-roots, yet  below it no placers were   ever  found iind  not    even    any    Moat   quart/.,   although  parties sunk   to mid drifted on bedrock to  find both.    The same can be said of other  substances' outside of  placer gold.    They  are  distributed  over the earth's sin face,  and the source from which they originally  came can not be determined.    Tho theory  usually advanced is. that it, is either from  glacial action or icebergs which have gone  to pieces while Ihe surface of the earth at  such   particular   points   was covered   by  w.-iler.  MAKING    DIAMONDS.  A French Scientist Succeeds in CouiHer_t'ullln.f  Nature."  Henri .Moissun of Lhe I'Veiich academy  of science, has just succeeded in solving a  problem which litis occupied llteal icntion  of scientific men for more t 1i.mii a century ���  he   has  succeeded   iu making a   diamond.  WHEN   THE    AUTUMN   COMES  Then Life. Bustle, Excitement, and Speculation Will Take Possession.  It- is almost universally the rule that  mining camps are dull during the summer  months. The Kootenay bake country i.s  no exception, in fact since the first work  of development begun on our mines this  Ins been noticeable.    But iii the fall, for  A   GLOOMY   OUTLOOK.  Tuliil Si�� ���''!���  This amount, deducted from sjiliy. I.'J  leaves a difference of i_S-l.">.0-2 per ton from  "which the cost of mining must bo subtracted. Allowing, handsomely lor this  expense, there is,-in apparent profit, of $-10  per ton on such a grade of oreat the present low prices of the metals.  With railway transportation [o and  i'rom the near vicinity of the mines, it appears as though there are many claims in  the Slocan belt which would pay fairly  well should the prices of silver and lead  not advance.  Were we to admit that silver remains  as a commodity, and is only worth what il  will bring, the very fact of so many low-  grade silver minus being compelled to  close, shuts oil" the supply of load to such  an extent. Unit, in the nature of things,  tliatmolal is bound to advance in price.  This" fact alone will have <-i tendency to  cause the Knifed States lo repeal the lead  clause in the AleKinley bill.  It is now a settled fact that a railway  will penetrate tho .heart of the Slocan district in the next few months': the saving  in transportation will then he quite sin  item, iind would he, added to the mine  owners profit. Surely if there is any hope  ahead for the silver-lead miner of the  west, the West. Kootenay producer has  nmnyehmicos.in his favor not possessed  by those of other sections. The extraordinary grade i.s si great boon to makeup  for inanv obstacles.  A Small-Potato Administration.  The Cleveland administration is earning  for itself a reputation that is not.at .-ill  en visible. The Salt Lake Tribune says:  "The lamest, flattest, and withal one .of  the dirtiest notices that has boon'sent to  this Western country for a longtime was  tho quibble in yesterday morning's dispatches to the effect tlisit the sccrelsiry of  the treasury can, in his discretion, directly  violate a plain law, sis plain a law sis over  appesired in the statute books, if. in tho  discretion of the director of tho mint, the  oilers of silver seem to -be above the  market price. The marker, price is fixed  in London, is'cabled every day, and that  is given to every banker who buys silver  bullion. It absolutely regulates, or did  regulate, the price of silver in this country  until the treasury officials of the present  administration wont into tho old junk  business to break it down a half cent.  The result has been that during the two  last weeks they have managed to buy  some silver at half a penny less than the  real market value. Probably an aggregate ill the end of the year will be published as oneof the economies which the  present administration has deemed it wise  lo practice. But if there is an.American  citizen outside of I ho treasury oflicisils  who approves of (hat, kind of work and  thinks il. befitting either the dignity or  integrity of great oflicisils. that gent lei nan  is careful lo suppress his name."  Theories on Gold Formation.  A party of mining inch were recently  congregated iu Nelson discussing the distribution of placer gold throughout the  rich auriferous deposits of the west that  have been worked since the days of'111. A  Tijiiii'nio reporter listened to lhe conversation and gleaned ninny facts, which, as  liirtis he is aw tire, hereby for the lirst  time, appear in print. The existence of  ��� vast quantities ol gold iu the creeks, listrs.  and benches in placer milling-countries do  not pi ove I hat veins of high grade quart/.  are there by any means, mid t hosnnie rule  applies lowsii d placer deposits, as extraordinary rich quartz, veins have been found  where no placers could be struck below  although t lu.usiiuds msiy have been spent  in the search. Take, for instance, Alder  gulch, in .Montana. Kroin seventy to one  bum I red millions in gold have been washed  out. yet no qua Hz, to si mount to anything  was ever found iu any of t he surrounding  hills. Tho same can Lie said of the prolific Conl'edeisilo, aud many other gulches.  J_;tsf Chsiuie gulch and its  nearest ncigh-  i   moiidsciit rubies, they sink when plunged  :  iitlfi iod id oof mel hy lone, t he spec die grsi v-  j  ity of which is one-tenth les^. than that of  j diamonds., and   I hey   turn   into  carbonic  j acid when burnt iu pure oxygen- all conclusive tests.    The  discovery is  of no use  from a coinniercisd point of view, because  the diamonds obtained by M. Moi.ssan .are  loo small to be of value, and have cost fsir  more than   they could bo  sold for if they  could Lie combined iutoone gem.    Hut c-he  discovery is of very great importance front  the scientific  standpoint,  showing, as   it-  does, that  it is possible to produce all the  minerals of mature:   the diamond was the  most   (liflicult, iind    that   litis  now   been  overcome.  Kverybody knows that diamonds are  only crystallized carbon. Carbon is found  in three stales���ordinary carbon (as in  charcoal, co'vo. coal), grsiphite. and diamond. Chemists have done sill they could  to effect the crystallization of ordinary  csirbou. but without success. The origin  of the diamond is a disputed point, some  people believing that, the crysttilization  takes place iu si very high temperature,  others being of the opinion that the carbon  crystallizes stfc'si very low temperature  while immersed in liquids like sulphuret  of csirbou or in certain gases, while a'third  theory is that the process tsike.s place deep  down in the esirth, -where both temperature iind pressure sire enormous. Ksich  theory is supported by relisiblo evidence,  ami tiie discovery of the truth is very important- in the interests of science. M.  Aloisssin made his diamonds by the- aid of  | high temperature sind pressure. Ho inside  ! use of the electric are, which he. has nisui-  ipulated in such, a wsiy.sis. to .obtain..the  (.mormons heat of 1000 degrees, sind  for high pressure.ho turned to account the  natural property of-certain.substances to  increase in volume as they solidify. I f a  liquid metal is;thrown quickly into wsiter  its molecules dilate, sind are subjected to a  very great 'pressure. M. Moissan. therefore, oLitained si. mass of molten metal sit  a temperature'of -1000 degrees, in which  csirbou was dissolved like sugar in water,  then he precipitsited the mass in water  and the carbon erysi.silliz.ed under the  pressure. He was .aLilo to produce some  grsiphite and some atoms of another form  of ciirlion, which, when clestned and  placed under a microscope, proved to Lie  diamonds, some resembling the blackish  disunonds (carbonados) which have been  dug up at the Capo, and others identical  with the kind with which we are familiar.  Gold Pi-ospects on Beaver Creek.  Northport News. 20th: -'William Keo-  ney's gold prospect, three miles above the  mouth of Beaver creek, is showing up  finely. ;is shown by recent developments  in assessment work.     Mr. Koeucy is quite  sanguine of the'worl h of this claim, and  expects ;i showing of betterment as (lie  work progresses. Mr. O'Neill has located  ti claim similar in worth sind kind to I bid  of Koeney's, which isoulya mile a nil a hsilf  from the nioiilh of the creek, while Mr.  B.arLlellc. superintendent, for Hull Brolh-  ers. who have the beef contract on the  Nelson A: Kort Sheppard rsiilwsiy. has  located ;i promising prospect only a half  mile from the nioiilh of the creek. As  B.artlelt is an experienced miner hesilso  knows what he has round .and has excavated and sent some line specimens to  Nelson for (.he handsel" the sissayer there.  The result I hereof will be duly reported  in this column sis soon sts known."  the past five years, something has transpired in si mining way which has renewed  the courage of the residents and kept the  bsill si rolling.  Those who are posted clsiini that (he  approaching autumn will bring with it sis  much or more life than any preceding  one. Without discussing the now almost  threadbare depression of silver, fheoiitr  look, when it comes to lie studied, is not-  so blsic.k sis it might bo. and the people  hsive no reason to believe that they are,  abandoned by hope.  Many mines now working will keep,  right on, sind others that hsive recently  closed will start up. while the ch.-inces are  very favorable for sin unusual stir being  commenced on the noted bonanzas of  Toad mountain, which stands a t the back  door of the town of Nelson.  Two rsiilwiiys sire being construcled in  the country, mid it is not among tins impossibilities that si third may begin the  work of construction in the nesir future.  While no one feels inclined to paint the  prospects of the future with very rosy  tinted hues, yet there' is an uudereitrrenl of  fooling that all will Lie well.

The race, sis first arranged, wsis fur $500  a side, but for some reason tho backers of  the mare only-put up $200. On the first attempt to score, the riders, laboring under,  the "belief that the stsirt was to be mside  in the same way as at the Dominion Dsiy  races, sent, their ..horses, through to the  wire under the whip, the horse winning by. ii neck, although tho mare  had si length the best of" it at the  start. ��� The :'starter, however, declared  he had not given the word, therefore the race had to be run over. Instead  of csilling the horses up immedisitely to  -score <is i.s customary, nearly sin hour was  wasted in "jockeying" the. horse, who i.s of  a nervous, excitable disposition. On the  next attempt to score, they got off well together, but tlie horse could not be controlled by the rider, and the mare won the  race by a length. The edges, after "hearing a good deal of wrangling, gave the  race to the mare, and the stakeholder, alter being notified not to do so, handed the  winners the stake money. On the whole,  the race was very unsatisfactory, 'not  only becsiuseof the bad blood engendered,  but bccsiuse the onlookers did not consider  it ii fair trial of the speed of the ma re and  the horse. It is not likely that another  race can be arranged, .although bsickers of  the horse sire; willing to place $1000 Id $."S00  thsil he can beat the mare.  Came Very Close to It.

Let eastern men read (his:  consider that hundnd of good towns are  similarly alloc fed: then lot (belli ssiy if  the government can silforil todrop silver  sis si money metal? The West lias started  upon a pilgrimage. It may be si long or si  short, one. as nesi ring events will de ten nine  but il is si pilgrint.age wherein silver is the  object of our faith .and sub.joctol' our pr.a.v-  ers and songs. If we end the journey sind  our prayers sire heard, we shall see sacred  homes blessed with untold prosperity. If  our mission is not siccoinplished. our  beautiful state, iu sill her glory sind  power, with mines, commerce, nianufsic-  (tires, .agriculture, sind all her mighty  system of exchange, backed by segregations of capital aud brstins, of muscular  skill and force, will sit onco relapse into a  state of lethargy or go "glimmering with  the things that wei e iind are nol." Her  thriving masses will have to migrate, and  the reinsiining \'ew will be bound toa fate  so cruel as practically to have no promise  of relief.  The situation for Lhe West i.s abject,  gloomy, de-niorsite. If within six months  silver is not restored to its place as money,  it is doubtful if it will be done in as many  years. And to what course can our population turn? We buy from the Mast. II  the Last does not tsike our present products, we must look for others upon which  to continue the exchsinge system, or we J  inusl'seek other Holds, where bread can |  bo earned and bodily wants satisfied. In- !  evitably the hitter must be our choice, for  our own section is distinctively si silver  producer. -While silver is prosperous the  valley will support thoussinds. 'With  silver debased, it is doubtful if fifteen can  remain to gusird the path of desolation.  No one can live in Neihsirt without si  msirket for silver. Other rich and prosperous districts of Montana are in the  ssiine strait. The result of a continued  depression of silver will* not only depopulate the greater portion of a grand sind  noble stsite, but will bring the aljlest and  wealthiest to penury, privation and wstnt.

Curious combinations of circumstances  sometimes   come   about   which   makes a  mining district  valuable and   causes   its-  towns  sind villsiges to   teem with population, sind wesillh   pours into the coffers of  citizens. Tsike. for instance, the low grsido  siJver-Jesid   mines  of  the   C.eur d'Alenea.  After concontrstting from four to ten tons  of raw ore   into one, this   product  rsinges  in value I'rom sixteen to fifty ounces in silver sind   from   fifty lo sixty-live per cent  lead. The 111:1111 bulk of these concentrsites  sire then shipped 1500 miles south Lo   Denver.  Colorado, or  Oniahsi.   Nelir.aska. for  treatment.     It i.s the fact of them finding  si market at those distsint smelling phaces  that nisikes them  vsilusible.    The smelters  heretofore   have boon  compelled'to  have  these ores, high grade in lead, to mix with  iind Ilux   the dry ores which   meet  them  there, coining from New Mexico. Arizonsi,  and Colorado.    The Slocan ores, however,  are bound   to si   groat extent, to   tsike lhe  plsice   of Cieiir  d'Alene ores.    As  si   rule  they   sire   perfectly   clean    when   mined,  needing  no expensive ni.aehinery to sop-  si rate   the   worthless   from   the   valuable,  and besides they contain such a high percentage of the white niotsil. The .very fact  of tlie mines of Sloean being so high grade  establishes   the cortsiinity that, they will  be   worked, and worked to  si profit, even  if many of the lower grade camps become  eonipsirsitively deserted.    There sire people who follow the business of mining- entirely, iind mine for silver and lestd alone.  These will tsike hold of the Slocan properties for  the reason that   they  will pay  under sidverso circumstances when many  others in  more favored and   better developed localities would bocompelled to close.

A scare 11 'was inside of the  entire boat and no trace of the missing  boy could be found.except the hat before  spoken of. The boat then put back for  Lardo and a most thorough search wsis  made of the entire town .and surrounding  bush, about every citizen of the plsiee  turning out to assist.  The boat crew peered into the water of  the bay .around where tho steamer lsiy  inooiod the night before, and felt with a  long polo, but no evidences of si body  were found. A sudden rise of the Ltu-do  river the night before hsid muddied the  waters of the bay so thai an object could  not bo seen sit the bottom in the usually  clear wsiter.  When the news of Harry's mysterious  disjippoaranee became known on the arrival of the bosit tit Nelson, the intelligence iippesired to cast si gloom over the  community, as he wsis well .and fsivorstbly  known hero.  IL K. Lemon iind G. A. Bigelow sit once  inside prep.arsilions to begin si systematic  search, never to quit until the mystery  was solved. They left on the Ainsworth  yesterday morning provided with grap-  Mng irons, etc.. so sis to thoroughly drsig  the bottom of Lardo bay.  At Kaslo, Messrs. Lemon and Bigelow  wi;re joined by Boil Crane sind James Ale-  Donald. Inside of an hour .after sirriving  at L.ardo (ieorge A. Bigelow and James  AlcDonsild found the body in sibout six  feet, of water and brought it to the surface. The boat then returned to Kaslo  whore st physician mside an exam ina tion  of the remsiiiis. A bruise wsis found over  the right eye sind smother on the right  shoulder near the bsise of the neck. This,  gives rea.sonsfuloiio.ss to the theory that  Harry sat, down on the guard rail  of the boat, -fell sisleep and .dropped  over 'backward.- in falling lie turned'  over iind struck "tlie' lower 'guard,,.,  thou mi rostching .'the wsiter he so  far recovered as' to try sind .save himself by .swimming, and in this act came  in contact with the boat, causing the  bruise.on the shoulder, but by this time  being so chilled sind exhausted, he sank in  the chill waters of Kootenay hike, which,  like old ocean,'so seldom gives up its dead.  The body arrived hero on the Ainsworth ���  sit 1:-S0 ]). 111. t.oday. At Ainsworth and Bsil-  four. whore the people hsid been notified  of the ssid. occurrence, ladies met the boat  .and brought lender offerings of besiutiful  flowers lo be Istid on "the. casket of the  young man ''who had been so popular  among' his ncquaintsinee.s for the past  three years. The funeral .took plsice at l  p. in. today, .livery one who hsis over  beeu iissocisited with ll.arry Ilebort spesik  in the highest terms of him. On liis body  when found wore letters he hsid the night  of hi.s death written for Lardo people to  firms in Nelson, which would disprove siny  theory' that drink caused his (loath. In  speaking of the deceased. John I'siterson.  oneof the owners of the A ins worth, stilted  that Harry had attended to his duties-as  purser on the trip up on Monday and thsil  iiis books sind siccounts were perfect, .as  they always were.

A   POSITIVE   SOURCE   OP   REVENUE.  hS!).S  ALL   ARE   "FREE   MINERS.'  Once in si while some crunk drifts into  West Kootenay district from south of: the  interusitional boundary line who glories  in telling what this country would be "if  it wsis only on the other side." It is time  that such rot, used sis an sirgiunent to upbuild one government by decrying: sin-  other, "was stopped. There i.s no essence  of patriotism in such ignorant babbling.  A psitriot in one country has. and shows  his respeel for a foreign government while  under the protection of its laws. Tho  foundation of every business interest in  this portion of Mritish Columbia i.s mining. To' become a "free miner" the government imposes a small tax, the insignil-  ic.aut sum of $ii, per year. It matters not  whether tho persons engaging in the business are native-born British Columbians,  Americans, or citi/.ens of any other nation,  no lines are drawn sind all, if interested in  .mining shsill pay this small amount. The  revenue derived from this source is expended in roads or trails for the benefit of  all. Should ti prospector be contented  with si mining claim located tit the waters  edge, on lhe wave washed shores of Kootenay hike, he would probably never sisk  the government to expend si dollar for a  road or trail. But if his claim or claims  were situated in:some comparsilively inaccessible part of the country, it i.s not improbable but what thoussinds of dollars  would be intelligently expended ou roads  or trails for the lionelit of such claims cli-  roollysind the public indirectly. Again,  outside of Creede, in Colorsido, where is  there another niiningseclion on tho North  American continent thai litis made such  rapid strides in advancement in the psist  four years sis West Koolontiy ? Four  years ago such sin article sis a board, if il  existed here was the product of whipssiw  labor. A trille over two years si go sistoru-  Avhoel steamer on this fresh wsiter sesi was  si curiosity. In this brief lime cities smd  towns have grown like-magic, and four  statelystoaniers.with till modern improvements, touch at their fine wharves almost  daily.  . These, sind countless other innovalions  of modern thought smd modern energy  have been brought sibout by what, not  the person who acknowledges Croat Brit-  siin as his country, not by citi/.ens of the  Lrniled Stsilos alone, the German. Scotch,  Iris hi mi n or sm y other list ti una lily entirely,  but the grsind army of "free miners"  whose birthplace ever remains unquestioned whether ho makes si million or a  bare living while pursuing a peaceful vocation in one of the best governed countries in the world. There hsis boon enough  said about the "slow" Csinadisin and tho  '"fast" Yankee, whsit we want is the "free  miners" to got tho ore out of the hills. If  silver becomes simply si commodity, we  hsive mountains of lead, should that metal  decline in price we hsive plenty of copper,  and no small, moiety of that noble yellow  metal, gold. West Kootenay i.s, now, iind  for sill limes will hold her plsice sis si inetsd  producer. She has vast reserves of four  different kinds of metals useful to the  world, iind should one prove valueless,  there sire the others to fall back upon.  SOME   MODERN   METHODS.  What i.s to interfere with the South  Kootenay Board of Trade, at their next  mooting, discussing the (piostion of making the Kootenay country si .Mooesi for  tourists, sis suggested in the last issue  of Tiik Thiui'nk?  A little attention devoted to this subject, and a small amount of energy ex-  ponded, would prove LomII the importance  of adding to our resources the large  amount of revenue which would annually  come our way. AW we hsive to do is to let  the sighl-seer and pleasure-seeker of the  world know what csin hero be found that  itdds to their enjoyment, and they will  flock in upon us a,t the proper season,  swelling the dividends of transportation  linos, crowding oitv well furnished modern  hotels, smd in fact benefitting tho resident  population as an entirety.  Heretofore tlie local press and the  ubiquitous newspaper correspondent for  distsint journals, have csilled attention to  the many attractions of this attractive  sind favored conn try. Sow if the Board  of Trsido, which i.s the mouth-piece of the  country at large, will only devote some  attention to tho msitter, the rest will be  plain sailing. The trsinsportsition companies, there i.s no fear of doubt, will  moot the Board of Trade more than half  way in the matter, smd, if the proper phin  is adopted smd carried out, next sesison  would witness a wonderful change for the  bettor in every branch of business iind sill  would be enriched, from the wealthy  president of a railway or steamboat corporation to the impecunious man of all  work.  This subject should be brought up sit  the next mooting and  it i.s si smsill matter  ti) appoint a committee to inquire into its  merits.   THE    SILVER   QUESTION.  of silver each month.. The law reads:  "'The secretary of the treasury is hereby  directed to purchase from time to time  silvoi* bullion losiggregato -1.5()0,00()ounces,  or so much thereof as may bo offered, in  each month at the market price thereof,"  etc. Under this construction, if the price  does nol suit the department, it is hold  that purchases need not bo made in any  special mouth, so long sis the aggregate i.s  maintained. The decision sis to what i.s  the nisirket price is mside b.v the director  of the mint, who makes tho purchase. Tho  acting director of the mint expects to got  liis full quota for tho month of July.  What an Editor Has to Contend With.  This is si queer world, a person linds it-  out iu running a newspaper more than in  any other branch of business. You may  ex toll a man's virtues, make a reputation  for him. iind place him in a position where  ho enjoys the plaudits and emoluments of  the world, but, allow one word derogatory  lo him, or one single typographical error  creeii into the paper, and you lose his  friendship for life.

Many modern improvements are eoin-  pletoly revolutionizing various branches  o f business in the largo cities of the L'nitod  H tiitos. which the people sire beginning to  consider seriously.

In ii speech at Spokane, Washington,  William II. Clagett, a prominent Republican, said in psirt: ''The silver question  is but si part of the great financial problem. I can give but a few suggestions this  evening. When in the olden dsiys .Joseph  gsithered corn in the years of plenty sind  sold it to the people in years of famine,  tho good book tells us tlisit he lirst took  sill their money, then their cattle, then  their hinds, and at last their bodies in  shivery, for bread thsit they might live.  This is precisely what our modern usurers  are doing. Rome fell because a few men  gathered all the peoples' money in their  hands. .Babylon's history tells the ssiine  story. Tlie emergency today is infinitely  gresiler, inlinitely harder than that we  I'sinciod in IStil."  Charles S. Thomas, Democratic national  coininitteoniiin from Colorsido. in a .speech  at Denver, remarked: "We arc face to  fsioo with a crisis which hsis hsid but few  parallels in the history of this country: it  is so deep, so broad, so far reaching, that  it does not involve exasperation to predict  thsil it moans smother phase of the old  question of slavery over again. It means  stagnation of business and psiralysis of  commerce."  At the Denver meeting governor \Ysiito.  Populist, expressed tho following ideas,  which a re upheld by some and condemned  by others: ''If Ihe money powers shall  attempt to sustain their usurpation by a  strong hand, wo will meet that issue when  it i.s lorcod upon us. for it i.s bettor inlinitely that blood should flow to our  horses" bridles rather that our national  liberties bo destroyed. If it is true that  the L'nitod States is unable to carry out  its governmental policy without the dio-  tation or consent of foreign powers, if wo  are a province of European monarchies  then we need another revolution, another  appeal to sinus, and we have won thsit  battle. .11" war is forced upon us. wo will  send to Mali lax for sin army, and estab-  fish armies according to our population  larger than our forefathers soul these  after the revolutionary war. The war  hsis begun. It is the .same war which  must always be waged against oppression  iind tyranny to preserve the liberties of  man."   Now is the Time for Mining Men to Invest.  There sire two classes of persons in the  mining regions of the west who now have  a splendid opportunity to make untold  millions. One i.s the class who can produce the white metal at si profit for -10 or  .")() cents per ounce, sind the other the psir-  tios who have such inimen.se (piniitities of  tlie yellow metal in sight in auriferous'  veins, or'between the grass-roots and bedrock in gravel deposits. .Fortune and sill  tlie other blessings now await tlie above  clsiss of miners .should they but got to  w-ork and demonstrate what they so long  have claimed to bo facts.

A Short Story From New York's Chinese  Quarter.  Ilu was rather tall for a (J1iiiiiiiiia.ii. live  feet iind six inches, perhaps, but otherwise, from his soft, black felt hat, with ti  yard of slender queue coiled up under it.  to the eork soles of his blue and white  shoes that made no sound as he walked  over the wet bricks nl" the pavement, ho  looked like any one ol'the hundreds of  other Chinamen that slouched through  .Motf. street at eleven o'clock atni^ht. His  lace wti.s utterly expressionless, and his  hands were as far out ol' sight under the  (lowing sleeves, of hisblack blouse, as we're  any of the other Chinamen's.  lie had come over alone on a- .Jersey  City ferry-boat, walked as rapidly as. a  Chinaman can be expected to walk.across  deserted .Broadway, and City Mall park  to the Brooklyn Bridge, up through l.'ark  Bow to the Bowery- where nothing is  ever clean, or ever quiet, or ever commonplace. Just below the elevated railroad  station, perched on its forestof steel posts  over Chatham Square, he'entered into  Mott street, and was in Chinatown, and  that acre of quaint viciousness that hasn't  its like in the wide world.  Some 200 old tenement houses filled with  Chinamen, at the rate of six to each of the  little rooms, and more if there is room for  them to lie down���that is Chinatown.  Now at eleven o'clock, iu every room  there is a. faii-ta.n game'oraii opium joint,  except in the apartments occupied by the  Chinamen who can 'afford independent  establishments and young white girl  wives.  Quong Fin,-our tall Chinaman, walked  along dejectedly. He looked tip to where  the red and yellow lanterns swung in Lhe  bamboo balconies that projected from the  upper stories of the houses, where ten  foot square restaurants were located high  above the narrow.strip of wet. slimy cobblestones that separated the equally wet  and slimy brick foot pavements. Dim  lights shown from the cellarways where  the cheaper dens of evil were, and the aii;  was hcitvy with the undescribable odor of  cooking opium and the Chinese tobacco  smoked in thousands of little brass pipes,  "Let's go sinoke."siiid a girl of nineteen,  whose lace was like a mask with its coating of rice powder ami rouge, putting her  iii-iii through Quong Fin's.  ".Me no got money." Quong sail I. sha king  her oil'. A few steps fartherou lie stopped  just opposite where the. great green lantern swung in front of the joss bouse, and  forcing his way through the knotof frowsy  girls at the doorway, entered one of the  old tenements whose upper windows were  dotted with rod and yellow lanterns.  Down a narrow hallway that led back from  the street he reached a stairway in which,  two Mights up, lhired ;i giisjef. Tho stairway Wits crowded with Chinamen passing  up and down, all chattering in Chinese,  but none of them spoke to the stranger.  Coing through the green door beside the  gas jet tit the third landing, Quong entered oneof the better class of Chinese  restaurants, and sat down ou a soiled  cushion at one of the little, low, round  tables that crowded tho floor of the narrow room, ('ailing for dinner, he leaned  back on his cushion, iind stared gloomily  iit the grotesque paper dragons a ml bright  colored banners that hid the low ceiling.  lie would oat his dinner, lie mused, iind  by that time the shallow-piirsey Chinamen would have been cleared out of the  fan-tail rooms, and he would play, just as  he had been doing for nearly a month. I le  had now won what; would lie a fortune to  most Chinamen, iind had played in every  fan-tan place in Chinatown. But his  good luck angered him. To liissuspicious  mind it meant ill luck to the one project  that filled his mind.  As he Wits finishing his sixteon-eourse  dinner, and gulping down his fortieth little cult of tea, he almost wished his luck  would   change, and   that   ho  could  lose  money that night.  Li/.. Not Sam Moy'>  Liz. nor Tu Tin's Li/..  Li/.--ho had seen al  one false scent after  Liz of  Von   Lip, tho  Then he could find  ��� Liz; nor Cliee Ling's  nor yet Chung Sin's  of them, misled by  another.    It was the  luckiest  gambler in  Chicago, who had won sill his   money and  stolen his  pretty white girl wife, that ho  wanted   to find.    Liz had told him befoie  she went away with Veil Lip. he remembered, that she could   not- love him unless  he had lots of money.    Now he had lots of  money, a silk   bag full of ten. twenty and  one hundred  dollar bills iind gold  pieces  hanging close under hi.s left arm  pit, and  he. couldn't find Liz.    As it was too early  for the fan-tan games to be at their best,  when he got through with his dinner. Fin  went, around   to a   Chinese   theatre  in a  Doyor's street cellar, where   the'famous  Hop Chin  Lung was  beginning the third  night of his great monologue in the tenth  net of  the ���'Dragon's Breath."   Once inside the '"theatre. Quong Fin   was almost  tempted   to   abandon  his ��� weary'search,  curl   up   on one  of   the bunks that  surrounded the square stage in the center of  the cellar, aud   spend tlie night smoking  opium.    If  he only  had  Liz  to cook the  'brown   "dub" . over ��� the   tiny   peanut   oii  flame  for  him.   'His eyes dimmed as he  thought of what  had   been ���of what. he.  had lost.   As he forced  the starting tears  back into his heathen  lieart, and iooked  across the theatre   to  the 'double-priced,  bunks, each enclosed with a pair of short,  red curtains across its front that allowed  the occupants to listen   to the play without being seen, he  reeled  and   fell back  against a   vacant  bunk  behind  him.    A  waiter had pulled back the red curtainsof  one of  the  bunks on   the other side   to  hand in another "toy", full of  the  "dub"  Through the opening Kuong Fin'saw Liz's  face, fairer than   ever, with   its crown of  'golden  curls.    She laid on   her side. One  white hand hidden iu her yellow cm Is as  she leaned ,on  her. elbow, while with the  other she held  a   ball of opium over  the  . peanut oil lamp in thecenter of thesqtiare  bunk, and  twirled   the silver wire, sit the  end  of   which   the opium  sputtered, 'between   her slender, white lingers so that  the "dub" could lie well cooked  through.  Ven Lip was'curled up on  the other side  of the lamp, and   when   the pill of'opium  was cooked to.a dark golden color in  the  beat of the smokeless and  odorous Maine.  Liz deftly moulded   it into  round hole in  the flat bowl of his pipe.    Then, as he lit  it over the lamp, and  inhaled  tho heavy,  velvety smoke deep into his lungs, a. look  of heavenly satisfaction  spread over his  fat yellow face.    Quong  Fin noticed tlutt  Lizs hand was ���laden with jewels, and his  heart contracted with, pain as he thought  that she was  probably happy.    Ven   Lip'  seemed to lie sleeker and richer than over.  Quong Fin  motioned  for it   waiter, and  engaged the bunk   next  to the one where  Liz was. the drawn-back curtains of which  showed  it to lie unoccupied.    Once in  it  but an inch of flimsy pine  partition separated him from   Liz.    He heard  her soft,  purring voice as she coaxed Yen Lip for a  necklace of  pearls.   The same  Liz still,  thought Quong Fin.    Liz had a low. sweet  voice that made the pigeon  Fnglish she  talked sweetest music to him.  "You no give mo pearls I go way," Liz  was saying, as she cooked another pill of  opium for Ven Lip's pipe. "All light, to-  mollow," Ven answered drowsily, in the  midst of the rosy dreams that were gathering in his brain with his eighth pipe*.  In the heavy air Quong Fin could distinguish the odor of the cigarettes Liz was  smoking its she cooked Von's "dull." ami  ho wsis glad because he knew that she  would not begin to smoke the pipe till  Von Lip was fast asleep. He cooked iind  smoked a pill of opium tho waiter had  brought him to steady his quivering  nerves, iind blew the smoke out without  inhaling it so that, he should not feel its  drowsy charms. It was no time for  drowsy ness.  Finally Liz coughed. The first pipe  a.lways made Liz cough a little. Quong remembered, lie sat up, and thrusting his  hand under his voluminous blouse, drew  the silk bag from under his arm. I'nl'as-  toning it, he took from one corner an off-  colour diamond of considerable size sot in  a handsome ring.    It was the handsomest  Liz seeing the jewel, dropped her little  land into the Chinaman's, then putting  her face close, to the opening she asked.  "Who there." ''Quong Fin." was the answer. "How, Quong Fin, much thanks."  whispered Liz. Quong rapturously kissed  the pink palm a.nd said, "come in and see  me lil' gal." "No can. wake up Von Lip."  ���"Yon no likee Ven Lip?" asked Quong.  "Oh, he good, give me everything,"  evaded Liz. "No likee me?" "Vou no  got money." "Me got fifteen thousand  dollii." whispered Quong impressively.  ."Oh. Quong." replied Liz. and again the  little white hand was thrust through the  opening, and Quong kissed it ecstatically.  " Whore you live?" Quong asked. "Four  Poll stleet. thlee stairs Mont." whispered  Liz. "JMe come toinoilow when Ven Lip  go." "Show me money. Quong." "Toinoilow night, then we go way. anywhere,  evlywhere." "All light Quong. Go  Chicago first." "All light, you be leady  tomollow night?" " Vox." answered Li/..  putting her hand through the opening  again.    "Me  �����<>   now."  said    Quong   Fin.  ���away  "(iood-bye, Quong." said Liz.  Quong Fin stowed his treasure ba  under liis left arm again, and slipping  quietly out of his bunk, left the theatre.  It was raining, but he did not notice it as  he hurried down Parle Bow iind across  City Mall Park. At tho Broad way side of  tho park he stopped beside the line of  cabs that wailed in the rain for Into lares.  Quong took tt silver dollar out of his  clothes and approached tho nearest cabman. "Here dolla." he said. "Vou go  four Poll stleet eleven o'clock tomollow  night, takee lil' gal lido, then me gov you  five dollii."  '"That Chink's crazy," said the hackinan  to the others. "No he .-tint," said one.  "he's hiving his pipes to steal some other  chink's girl. But she must be a beauty  for ti heathen tor give up six dollars for a  cab for her."  Quong Fiii continued (in his way:to tho  Court-land street ��� ferry. Approaching a  clerk in a Pullman sleeping car. office he  .inquired:. "What time last tlain start  Chicago tomollow night?"  "Twelve  fifteen," answered    the chirk.  "IIow   much   sleep car for  lady?"   .Five  dollars for one  berth, ten dollars   for section."    "Give mo section." said Quong Fin  handing the clerk a ten dollar bill.   Then  he bought  two  through  tickets for Chicago and hurried back to the Chinese theatre so as  to shadow Liz and Yen Lip to.  their home.    Quong Fin went back to Jersey City and spent tho day with his happy  thoughts, not  wishing to expose himself  iu  Chinatown.    At   nine  o'clock   in   the  evening he  wont over  tlie ferry to New  Vork, iind half an hour'later'.stood inaii  .opposite doorway   watching  No. -I,    Poll,  street.    About ten  o'clock Von   Lip came  out and started   for Mott street.    At the  same time tho  dim light in one of the'upper  windows  of  No. I   brightened a.  bit.  and showed   a delicate oval face  crowned  by ;t wreath of golden curls looking down  into   the   street.    As   soon   as    Ven   Lip  turned.the corner'Quong  Fin  crossed the  street and felt   his way. up the dark stairway to the   third story.    The door to one  of the front rooms was open  half an inch,  and   Liz  was   peering out  into   the dark  hallway.    In   an Instant  Quong   Fin   was  madly kissing her hands, her round white  neck iind her sunny curls.  "Don't   make   noise   Quong,"   said Liz.  ���'Where is tho money?"  Quong took out the silk bag filled with  gold it ii( I bills, Liz's eyes da need as she saw  the contents. As rapidly as lit.1 could  Quong Fin told Liz of his plan. They  must make haste, he explained, and get  away before Von Lip should come back.  ''Ven Lip gone to play big fan-tan." ���  said Liz. "lie no come back fill tomorrow.  W'e go now. ea Ilia go here."  Liz was thinking how much Quong must  love her to starve  and save  and steal for  her these four years since she had left him  in   Chicago.    "Vou  do  anything I   say?"  she asked him looking into his eyes.  ��� Yes  sure."    "Cut off pigtail ?"    "Vou no mean, j  Liz," ill most  sobbed   Quong Fin.     "Ves, ���  mo  no  likee  you, you ha ve  pigtail."   Si- |  lently   Quong   Fin   uncoiled  the shining ;  braid.    There   were tears in  his eyes and ;  he shut them.    With a   quick jerk  and a  sound like the tearing of  tough paper, ho ;  tore out by the roots the hundred hairs in  tho center of his shaved   crown  on  which .  hung the long queue. j  ".Mo itII siiinee monkey now," be said, its i  he laid the longslender'braid of jetty hair j  that typified hissoul across Liz's lap.    Liz ;  did nut speak. She was watching Von Lip.  who had crept iu noiselessly, according to |  Liz's  pliin. iind was just   raising a loaded j  cane over Quong Fin's head.    Liz had told j  him everything-, and planned Quong Fin's <  murder   for  his   money.    The   blow  only  dazed  Quong   Fin. who suddenly turned  and grappled with his assaihiut. before he  could strike again.     Ho quickly   had Ven  on his back, and held his hands so hecoiild  not.  use. his  deadly   knife.    Liz   had   not  spoken,   but    soon   saw    that   something  must be done.     Noiselessly she crept over  to where Quong's   pigtail   had  been   laid. ;  As she stepped behind  her husband with  the snake-like rope of his hair in her hand, i  he turned his   head   and asked:    "No kill!  him?"    "Ves, kill him," answered Liz.        |  But before Quong Fin could move Liz  had thrown the pig tail he had just sacrificed'to her around his nock and pulled it  tight under the chin. In an instant Von's  knife was iu Quong's neck, but with what  remaining strength he possessed was used  to deal ii crashing blow with the loaded  cane, which ended Ven's existence.  "He  kill   mo���I   kill.him���for you, Liz"  he giisped.    Liz   was busy   picking up the  money scattered over this floorcluring.the  struggle, and   said   nothing.    "Kiss  me���  lil   gid" he pleaded, his   voice thick   with  the hoarseness of death.  "I'gh ! you pig !"  was 'all Li/, said.    Liz's course,  was  now  plain. She took from tho body of Ven Lip  a Chinese key, unlocking a strongbox, the  property of  that dead   worthy, she   for a  while gloated,over the contents.    Twenty  thousand   dollars,   she   mitrmui-cd,   then  einpl ying I he contents of Quong Fin's silk  sack  jnto  the   same   traveling   bag,  she  made ready for her depart lire.   The hack  was in waiting-, its Quong Fin said it would  bo.    She locked the door as she passed out,  putting  the  key in   her   pocket.    "Cotirt-  iandt street ferry," she said to the driver.  When the haekninn opened the door for  her. she had just fifteen   minutes to catch  tho Chicago   train.    "I was   promised live  dollars" the hackinan said, as she handed  him a dollar.  "Well go and get it front him," she said.  "1 gets live dollars or  1 keeps the bag,  see ?"  "What's he doing. Miss? Trying to overcharge you. is he?" asked a. policeman.      ,  "Ves,  sir." answered   Liz,   "lit!  says he  will not give me   my satchel unless I give  him live dollars."  Of course tlioguardian of the peace took  the bag from the driver and threatened  him with arrest, placed Liz on the ferry  boat, wishing her a. pleasant journey etc.  Liz stood onion the opon dec-kas the boat  crossed ihe dark North river. Halfway  across she dropped the door key iiito,i:he  water. "The police won't lind them for a  week." she mused. "How good and heavy  the bag fools. They'll never think of frying to find mo. fiii tired of being gay,"  her thoughts ran on. "I'll go homo to  mamma, lei! her my husband i.s dead, and  live like a. lady from now on.', Quoim's  sleeping oar tickets come in just right.  Now 1 won't have ony trouble, and lean  go right, on the car and sloop.  Not an Extensive G-old Mining- Country.

LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  No one who litis tried it.'denies but, ult.i L  this is a splcmliil country lo live in, and since, tin. report  wan circulated Mint, a popular youn^ man was drowned,  il turns out. it. is nol a had country in which to shullit' oil'  lliis tiioi'lal coil, as his friends arc -pitri.i}_f neither lime  nor expense lo tiuil liis; rem.mis. even when they arc  under no obligation to do so.  It appears tlutt the Bio-, liertlia mineral  eliiiiu on t,ho west, side of .laeUson creek, ahout- ci^htx-un  miles west, of Kaslo, is mi mixed upin letfiilcomplications  that iL will take every lawyer in the province of iirit.ish  Coluinliia lo untangle tin- woo nl" lili^alionlikcly lo finiv  " out. of il. All adverse claimants are sanguine of success  in lliu cud. In the meantime quite .a shipment of valuable ore lies at Kaslo mil il such time as the owner-hip is  decided. ,,  Nelson   may be quiet.-, but. (here is quite  an amount of huildiuK Koinpc on. A walk around the  uul-kirls of the town will convince any one ol this fact.  Near the center, Ihe new courl house is la <;iiiiiiiiK In present, a slatejv aud line appi aiiuiee, and ynod huuiway is  hcinn Hindu on a new luo-.-loi y hiisiacss laualiiiK on Vernon street.  A.   II.   Kelly,  one of   Toad   inoiiiilain's  earliest pioneers, one nil lie ow ners of the Dandy mine  nnd of Hit; town-He of Kifdi'i'iclon, n turned a few days  .since from a tour of inspection to the Hall Creek mini's.  He reports many of the placer mines doitiK fairly well  and lhe discovery of quite a nninhcroftcold (|iuirl._ Icdtfos  on the surrounding mountain .-ides.  John   Hendry,   president- ol'  Lhe   Kaslo-  Sloean railway, with hi.- wife anil Mule chin^hlcr. passed  through Nelson this week on lhe way home lo New Westminster. As Tim: Timuuni: man asked for no information regarding lhe railway, we can tfive nunc from that  .-ourci; this week.  From all  reports the late strike in   the  l.ucky.lim mine ronlinues to improve, addiiiK value lo  the property every day. Dr. Kilhourne. lhe principal  owner, and whelms a hiuid on the reinuiiiiiitf interests, is  deserviiiK of all the good fort line that may come his way,  as he lint, teen one of the most, nervy and daring of outside investors yet-to try their chances iu I his counlry.  He hail expended ahout $1 l.'.HMl uu the properly when lhe  strike was made. c  It is claimed tlutt the steamers on the  Columbia river will not. land on ihel'nited Slates side  of lhe boundary line after the first of August. Hy thai  lime trains will be eros.sing the I'end d'Oreille river  bridge connect ing with boats on Lhe Hrilish side.  Postmaster Jay .Arthur. Shaw of Spokane has reliirncd lo fhal city from a trip through lhe  Sloean. According to his theory silver should be worth  ��1 an mince, and a man who locales and develops a mini;  is entitled to all lln; reward he can get. lie says the Sloean i.s the roughest euuntry he et'er traveled over.  Two   mails   from   Spokane,   instead   of  throe, isalllhal will be. received for sometime to come.  The fact that thesleainer Lytlon has been laid nil'on Hie.  Coluinliia is assigned as the cause.  The. steel railway,brid#uof the Nelson 6c  Kort Sheppard acro-s the'l'eiid d'Oreille river al the  boundary line is now coiupleled. The lirst, man lourn.3S  the structure was engineer \\ liite un Saturday evening  last,.  A private telegram received tit Nelson  yesterday slates that the Kirsl National Hunk of Spokane had cloned ils doors, not, being able lo slant! Lhe li-  nancial strain any longer. The suspension of ibis particular bank had been expected for -oine time and it is supposed there were ntiL many deposits in the inslitutiuii 10  be lost.  The Cu'iir d'AIeiie .Miner says "a. good  paying gold mine is a neces.-ary adjunct lo a priming ofliee Ihc.-e degenerate days." Hence the editor and proprietors of that paper have gone ]iro.-peeling fur auriferous veins and gravel beds, leaving the devil ami janitor  lo rim the sheet.  A crazy Scotchman.'by name John Ale-  Arthur, who had been guilty of more cu.-sedness, and lias  through his idiosyncracie.- been of sonic henclil In lii_.f_.l-  low-nian. for the past three years, has skipped from Spokane on account of the cli.efof police havinga warrant  isMtcd for liim tin the charge of insanity. IL was Ibis  same Mi-Arthur who, a couple of yearsago, predicted lhe  failure of the Kir-st National Hank of Spokane, and for liis  public statement, to this atlect made on lhe streets was  thrown into the .Spokane county jail for a Lime. He was  finally liberated, and commenced a suit for damages  against Hit; concern on which judgment was filially obtained by default. "MeArthur tht; universal broker, " it  is now claimed, is in hilling near .Mount Ciirroltun on the  ranch of a friend.  Jt is reported that a contract hits been  let to (.Ieorge Hughes by the Noble Kive owners to transport 10(1 tons of ore from the mines lo ICaslo.  J. II. Heward. formerly superintendent  of lhe Helena and Kriscu mine.- at Oem. Idaho, has returned to Wallace fron) lhe Slocan counlry and  reports Hint he was traveling nearly all the lime  for a."month, and took in a large .-.cope of country.  Kven aL this season of the year he traveled for  hours al a Lime over snow many feet deep. He describes the mining resources as something wonderful,  both as to the great number anil large size of the veins  and the general high grade of the ore. Jle brings .numerous specimens with him. some of which will assay as  high as 70 per cent ill silver.  Manager Huntley, whoa couple of years  ago was superintendent of the I'oorman gold mine near  Nelson, but lately manager of the .Morning mini; at .M11I-  lan, Idaho, says he considers it likely that the; Morning  mine will be run with a force of one man for a number of  years to come, and that man will be ihe watchman.  A letter from Kaslo to the Spokane He-  view states thai Dr. W. A. Hendryx and captain George  K. Hayward have commenced an action against the llen-  ne-sy brothers for half of their interests in lhe Noble  Five group of mines.  Tlie Lardo-Reporter has followed   the  example of a grcal many other worthy institutions and  has suspended, busted. (licit. Tlie last issue came out on  the commonest kind of wrapping paper and contained  Ihe terse announcement'* We Have Spoken." This is the  lirst newspaper failure in the Kootenay Hake country.  The latest metal quotations at hand are  that on the ���'I'tli instant, silver was worth (ill cents per  ounce and lead tJr't.aO.  A number of. capitalists have recently  come from Chicago Lo inspect, the mica mines near Voll-  mcr. Idaho. These mines have produced large (|imntilies  of this useful mineral in times past which cut in sheets  a- large as S by IU inches. If is of the wine color variety.  Hrilish Columbia has mines of the purely transparent  k nd, and much more valuable for commercial purposes  and electrical uses. It now behooves prospectors to keep  an eye out for this valuable substance.  A few 'days since a large she bear was  killed on the wagon road about one and a half miles west  of Kaslo. The brute and two cubs were up a tree and attracted about. 211 persons who were passing along Lhe  road. A rifle was procured at Kemp's .springs and Frank  flute brought the animal lo the ground the lirst shot.  The cubs were allowed to escape.  The prevailing hard times should  have  the effect of thinning out. the horde of bums, tin-horns,  and camp followers that, have infested this conn try since  I he wild excitement at Kaslo last spring.  John Sucksmith. who proposed starting  a sawmill al l.ardo, lias abandoned the scheme and gone  back to East Kootenay. .Mrs. .-'ueksmit h is at present  stopping with friends at. (.'oat river.  There will be a necktiesocialatthe Hotel  Slocan, Kaslo, tomorrow night. The lirst feature of (he  kind ever given in that city when,'all kinds of amusements are indulged in.  The Idaho saloon, in the Noble Five hotel building at Kii-lo, clo-cd on I j 1 -1 Friday night. Dull  time-the cause.  The Le  .Martel  brothers ha ve slarled a  new stage line on Ihewaguii road from Kaslo to Watson.  Judging   front  all  accounts, a trail will  al last be built up Crau fold'scn-ck. which empties into  the head of Crawford s hay. The (inkle brothers, who  have 11 line ranch al lhe north end ol lhe buy, ha ve for  several years endeavored to liiive ,-uch a trail const riicted  leading into East Kootenay, and now extensive mineral  discoveries between thc-c points i- liable locaiiscthe  construction of this thoroughfare.  .Dave  .Black, a   veteran   prospector, has  located a ranch at the inoiilh of I be llr.-l creek south of  l.al'ranec's woodyard ou Ihe ea.-l shore of Kooletmy  lakc. Him-claims Hint b.v way of hi- ranch is I he shortest route into the St. .Mary's section.and In; hopes in  time that his land will develop into a townsite.  Peter de Yillc. tlie original discovererof  tin; famous Tread well gold mini-, located on Douglasis-  liinil. Alaska, is now a resident of Kaslo, and i.s trying  his fortune in the mineral regions surrounding Kootennv  lake.  Marcus  Oppeiiheiincr.   who  for   thirty  years lias transacted business al the old boundary line  fort on the Columbia river, has at last accumulated sufficient of this world's goods to ret ire Ina life of ease. He  still resides, however, at I.he place which bears hi* given  name.  Lake D.   W'olford. one of the capitalists  who own the liiirdnucllcs mine in Sloean district, will  be married at Tacoma. Wash., on the llth of August.  "Hake" is authority for I hi; slat en icnt that this mine will  pay well with silver at, ;".D cent.- per ounce, and lie can  Well all'onl to take chances on mat riniouy.  The   body   of   Martin   Flaherty, swept  away b.v the Freddy l.ee snovvslide on January llli last,  had been carried down the steep mountain side at least,  ItfifJfM'cot.. There was al least I1" feet of snow under tin;  body and it had been covered fully'JO feet. The corpse  when taken from its icy louih, wasiialural us the instant  when the iinforiunalc young man lost his lift;, but exposure to I be air soon made a change which necessitated  burial at, once. It was supposed that Flaherty's and  Swilzcr's bodies had been ground to a pulp.  The presence of the untutored Si wash is  not so noticeable in the lake counlry now so much as iu  former years. Il must, he the encroachment of civilization and ils influences arc driving these nomads to the  solitudes not reached b.v the energetic and progressive  while man.  Many of the young men rustlers of Nelson ami other neighboring towns are taking iidvantage  ol the dull season and are out improving their ������undies,  thus acquiring a home, where tlicy eaii sit under their  own vine and tig trees and let the storm of adversity roll.  The best remedy for bard times is bard work, and it is  commendable iu tin: younger generation lo appreciate  this fact.  Claude , llitmber is putting in his spare  hours during the dull season 111 clearing up and improving his ranch seven miles up (.'ot ion wood Smith creek,  lie expects to have a line crop of hay this season.

If lie made 11 "lind," he is playing "vvildhog" on  the boys, and won't give it, away. ���"Hen" Thomas ami  "Jim" Townsend, who went along with Mr. Feehan are  still over there hunting for nometliiiig.  ��� Three  Forks  has  now four stores and  one hotel. The storekeepers are beginning to wonder  ..why lliey are there, as there is hardly enough business  'for one.  The First National, the oldest bank in  Montana, and the Molilalia National (the liroadwater)  hank have both succumbed lo the pressure caused b.v llie  debasement of silver. Hotb these depositories of wealth  were located in the city of I leluna, always considered  the richest town of its size, per capita, in the United  Stales, if not in the world.  The wagon road across the summit from  Hear lake 1.0 New Denver is making good progress under  the superintendence of Mr. Cameron. It will he up to  Hughes's headquarters camp (,'U miles east of Three  Forks) by Lhe end of nexL week. About lift.y men are at.  work, their pay being; ��2.;'i0 a day.  "Dick" Gallop of Balfour says that the  engineer party who la.-l week look a look at, lhe pass  from Crawford's bay to the St. Mary's river decided the  roiile impracticable for a railway unless a tunnel a mile  long was run at the siiuimit.  Thomas M.

While traveling  for pleasure and recreation mainly. Mr. Daly does nut  appear as a man who would snub a delegation of citizens  wishing lo interview him on business in the interests of  any section of the province.  J. A. Mara a.nd  F. S. Rarnard are both  at Nelson looking after their steamboat, and other interest.
