AN   INTEREST    IN   VALUABLE   SLOCAN  MINING PROPERTY CLAIMED UNDER  Tlie Terms of a Verbal Prospecting Agreement���The Trial'-Lasted--Six Days, and  Much Conflicting Evidence Was Given.  TIii.s cn.se i.s an action by Dr. VV. A.  Hendryx and captain G. F. Hayward to  recover a ono-lifth interest iii the Noble  Five group of claims in the Slocan, under  an alleged prospecting agreement;. Lust  week's issue of This Thiijuni. the full examination of W. A. Hendryx and the examination in chief of G. F. Hayward,  whose cross-examination now follows.  The case opened on Friday, the Uth instant, and occupied six days in trial.  G. l<\ Hayward, cross-examined by Mr.  Taylor: Got $100 for his share in the Last  k Chance; it was staked in his name and lie  deeded four-lifths of it to the boys. Did  not remember telling S. S. Bailey that the  boys had staked, two claims for him, nor  telling McGuigan, Bailey,'- or Hennessys  thtit he had to give tlie doctor half his  share of the Last Chance; will not swear  that he told anyone of his interest iu the  claims before this action. Knew of Olson's  suit against tho boys, but did not know  the merits of it. Did not pay anythingon  development work. Did not recollect telling D. P. Kane that the boys had located  two claims for him, nor saying to William  Hennessy that he did not wish to be in  the claim with the doctor. Paid the boys  altogether $225; $125 in small amounts  and $100 at one time; $12. was paid before  the $100, the latter was paid at the hotel  at Ainsworth.  Re-examined by Mr. Wilson: Asked  William Hennessy if he wanted money.  He said, "No; .1 have some of my own tit  Hume's-store antl prefer to use that at  jiresent." Knew they were going to do  assessment work for the doctor. Vvillia'ni  Hennessy said so, and that if anything  cropped up worth looking after "they  could Ily at any time." Did not get ;m  .assignment.of his interest because he had  confidence in the boys and was content to  ���leave it as it stood; other property stood  in the same way. Did not believe Hennessys would repudiate-'until a.mouth or  six weeks before he brought suit. Last  night Al person reminded him of a conversation, that took place on the steamer  Galena, when .Al person asked why he did  not get tin assignment.-of his interest,  adding, "I think the boys are going to  beat you out of it." Replied, "you attend  to your business and I will attend to mine.  I think the boys tire straight." That was  in the fall of 1802.  James B. [.step, examined by Mr. Wilson: William Hennessy came to.him and  asked him if lie wanted to go prospecting. He said that he-antl the doctor and  captain George, Harmon, McLeod, 'and  Kloch were together in it. They went  out and found nothing. Lii September,  William Hennessy told him he wa.s going  to the Slocan country, as he thought he  had a gootl thing there, and if he did not-  go the doctor would not like it. William  Hennessy then had charge of the doctor's  assessment work.  Charles Sodergren, examined by Mr.  Wilson:' Am a miner. Worked for Wil-'  lia.ni Hennessy iii August, 1801, who was  working for the doctor. He said he was  going to the Slocan a.s he iiad a. pretty  sure thing, and if he did not go the doctor  would hod like it. Said he was prospecting for the doctor and the captain.  Cross-examination by Mr. Taylor was to  provedefective nieinoryon part of witness.  William Pearse, examined by Mr. Wilson: Am a miner. Was working for the  doctor under William Hennessy on assessment work, which was completed September 22nd, 1801. William Hennessy left on  September 2lst, and said that parties had  been in to Slocan and had found something good and on return to Ainsworth  one of the parties had given tin untrue  statement as to the results of the assays  of the ore; that he had got hold of the  right information and was going to take a.  party of men in by way of Kaslo, while  the other party he was trying to head off  was going in by the Slocan river. He took  witness's boat to Ainsworth that evening,  telling us he would salute our camp on  hi.s way up. Said that he must go tis he  thought it was pretty good tind doctor  and the captain would not be pleased if  lie tailed to go. Said he would send boat  back by Jack, but if he didn't, he [Pearse]  was to get the tools back to the Bine Bell  tlie best way he could. John went in the  boat with William.  Josiah Fletcher, examined by attorney-  general: Wtis in Kaslo in 1801'. Saw William Hennessy before the .Slocan strike;  lie said Hendryx would as soon have him  prospecting as doing assessment work.  Saw William again after his return ou  steamer Galena; William said this was  the last season Hayward would have to  do any steamboating, tis they had plenty  of prospects.  George 1.. Harmon, examined by Mr.  Davie: In September, 1S!)I, wa.s watchman at the Blue Bell mine; knew  both the Hennessys; William Hennessy was doing assessment work for Dr.  Hendryx; in August, arranged with William Hennessy to send two men prospecting into the Slocan country. It wtis understood that Dr. Hendryx, captain Hayward, William Pearse, ami others were  interested with the Hennessys.  Mr. Taylor objected to this evidence re-  ., ferring to other agreements about other  claims.    The judge overruled the objection, but noted it.  Witness said William Hennessy stated  he and his brother had been prospecting  for Hendryx and Hayward all the season.  Mr. Taylor  asked  if   William's   state-  . incuts made in the absence of John are to  be evidence against John, and vice versa.  Mr.   Davie   said    that    they .alleged  there    was   a    partnership,    and    any  .statement.made-oy one of tlie. partners is  binding on the other.   William and John  tire parties to "anything either might say.  The judge ruled against.Mr. Taylor.'  Witness  said   Estep  and   McLeod  returned from prospecting iii a week or ten  flays; Williani Hennessy wa.s in charge of  the assessment   work   when   they came  back; they said  they did  not find any-,  thing. -William and John left the Blue  Bell, went to Ainsworth, and he lost track  of thoni. ���������''.-���'.'���������-.'-������  Cross-examined  by Mr. Taylor:-'John  was away for some time. Everyone working at the Blue Bell was in on this prospecting trip; Wiiliam did not go, he was  doing assessment work.  James Blanchard, examined by Mr.  Davie: Am an engineer. Wtis working on  the steamer Galena in October, 1801. Saw  Williani Hennessy at that time on board  the steamer one day at dinner; Sweet,  Alperson, captain Hayward, and Jenkins  wei'e present; William Hennessy came in  while'they were at dinner; Play ward invited him-to .have some dinner, Williani  said he had made a great strike in the  Slocan, a group he called the Noble Five;  he said there was enough in it for all; we  are all. right. Alperson said, who are we?  Will iti m Hennessy said, cajitain Hay ward,  Dr. Hendryx, his brother Jack, and himself.  Cross-examined by Mr.-Taylor: William  Hennessy said the Noble Five grouj) was  struck up there, pointing in a certain  direction. This was the first witness had  heard about Dhe strike; did not remember  date; it was about six o'clock in the evening; did not hear the caj)taiu say anything; remembered nothing else.  James Delaney, examined by Mr.  Davie: Knows William Hennessy; saw  him on the wharf at the Blue . Bell  mine in August, 1891; it was the first  week iu August; he knew that because he  was emj.loyed doing some upholstering  work on board the steamer Nelson on her  first excursion. .--William- said he was  l.rospecting for the doctor and 'captain  and had been prospecting for them all  summer; was going out again in a few  days |)ros])ecting for them.  In cross-examination. Mr. Taylor tried  to get the witness to fix the exact date,  but failed.  Ira Jenkins, examined by Mr. Wilson:  Was purser on steamer Galena in October,  1801. Saw William Hennessy on the  steamer in October on more than one occasion; saw him between the lirst and  tenth; it was after his return from the  Slocan. .'Later.iu the month he came on  board at dinner time; the crew of the  boat and Alperson were present. On this  occasion he remembered a conversation at  dinner. William Hennessy told Hayward  that he would not have, to do any more  steamboating; the mine was rich enough  for all; the Noble Five was mentioned.  Was jjurser on the Galena in the spring of  1801; William Hennessy paid his|iassage  on the first trip; on instructions from  -���Hayward he collected no fares afterwards  from Williani or John Hennessy. He saw  Jack in the spring of 1802; told him that  Hendryx and Hayward were claiming au  interest in the Noble Five. Jack replied  that he had a good thing and meant to  hold on to it, but did not deny the doctor's or the captain's interest. Witness  did not mention this to either of them.  Cross-examined by Mr. Taylor: Witness said that Jack j.aid his fare on the  occasion of this conversation. He relied  on the fare book for hi.s memory of dates.  He was in the habit of giving the cajitain  the money at the end of every week and  making up accounts with him at the end  of every month, but also gave the captain  money whenever he asked for it. He wtis  instructed to give the Hennessys money  but did not actually give them any, nor  did he see tlie captain give them any an  undated reecijit for $125 (put in by counsel) was made out in his presence; has not  seen any other receijit; all he knows is  that the-captain told him he had given  the Hennessys money; does not remember  giving the cajitain money for the Hennessys; could not fix elate' of receijit,  which was for all money uji to tlate.  .Re-examined: Ke|it a record of jiay-  ments made by the captain and charged  uj) $100 to him; could fix date if he referred to ti book. Witness wa.s allowed to  see the book (Mr. Taylor objecting) and  fixed the daieas July 'Kith, I.SOi.  Angus McKinnon, examined by Mr.  Davie: In May, .1801* wtis part owner  in the Suunyside claim, about one and  one-half miles I'roni Ainsworth. The  Maid wa.s located alongside it by Jack  Hennessy on May 22nd. Jack and William worked on the Maid after it was  located; was there while they were working; had a conversation with them about  the time of the excitement on Goat river;  they were both present: sjioke to William  iu Jack's presence; Williani said they  were jirosjiecting for Hendryx; this wtis  between 27th and .'JOthof May; no one else  jiresent. Lynch was his jiartner in the  Suunyside claim when he discovered it  and the claim wascommon jirojierty; this  wtis ti grub-stake contract.  Cross-examined by Mr. Taylor: William was working oil the Maid on tlie day  he went ii|), between May 27th and .'50th;  Jack Hennessy was there doing assessment work; there was an open cut; Jack  was drilling', Wiiliam was shoveling rock;  the cut wa.s iu 17 or 18 feet; the work did  uot make much noise. Williani said they  were jirospectingat the same time as they  woro doing assessment work; the Maid  was staked in Jack's name.  George Andrews, examined by Mr.  Davie: Was cook at the Noble Five  about October 1st, 180*5; he cut his  foot and was laid up in a bunk in the  cook-house; Jack Hennessy did the cooking; had several talks with him; Jack  and Bill came back from Nelson, where  they had been about the case, Jack was  very much-ruffled because the doctor and  ca|)tain Hayward were trying to claim a  share in the Noble Five to whicli ihey had  no right, as Jack said; he said the Noble  Five was discovered after the exjjiry of  the grub stake contract, though 'they,  might have had some of the grub still loft.  Cross-examined by Mr. Taylor: He believed that Mr. Glass had drawn uj) his  de|Kisition; it was written in the Nelson  hotel; Glass had heard him talking about  the case at Bonner's Ferry; lie was arguing then that Jack had said the agreement iiad expired before the discovery of  the Noble Five; Jack did positively say  they might possibly. have used some of  the grub at the time.  Re-examined: Understood Jack to say  there had been a contract before the location of the Noble Five and that they  might have had some of the grub left.  William Aljiersou, examined by Mr.  Davie: Saw William tieiinessy on  steamer Galena in cap ain Hayward's  presence. He slajjped captain George on  .lie back and said, " You don't want io  run aiiy more .steamboats, unless you run  one of your own." Then turning: to.', me  he saidj " We have got the jjrojjerties for  you to handle." YVitness asked, "Who  the devil are we?" He replied, "Captain.  Hayward,' Dr. Hendryx, Sea toil, McGuigan, myself and Jack." Witness asked  what and where his claims were. He replied, in the 'Slocan country and named  Che Noble Five, Kuoxville, Bonanza King,  World's Fair, and Maud L, and he asked  witness to sell them for him. lie said he  had made. 2. locations altogether. He  took the up and showed me tue ore iii-Ale-'  Guigan's and Martin's house acAinswor.h  and said 1 could have all the ore except  one sack, which was for the doctor, as lie  was interested. Saw the Hennessys in  Sejitember, Jack pointed to the mountains,  and.said it was a pretty good country and  thought; they would go pros|jeeting there.  Said they had located some claims in the  Krab camp for themselves, Hendryx and  Hayward.. Prospecting agreements are  generally verbal.  Cross-examined by Mr. Taylor: Witness  said he-had told Hayward that it lookeel  as if tlie boys were going to beat hini out  of the claims, and-Hay ward told him  to ��� mind hi.s own business. Had not  himself had any dealings with the Hennessey boys, but had heard of tlieir dealings ou the o.her side witli a i_.au named  Bull.  Plain tiffs' counsel then put in various  jiapers relating to the Last Chance and"  Reciprocity claims, also the free miner's  eertillcate of Dr. Hendryx and cap.ain  Hayward from 1800 to 1_.3, ali of which  were objected to by Mr. Taylor.  James Estep recalled and examined by  Mr. Davie: Went out jirosjiecting witn  William and John Hennessy ou August 10th or 20th, 1801, working for Dr.  Hendryx, captain Hayward, G. Harmon,  Kloch, McLeod and witness. William  Hennessy mentioned those names and got  a free miner's certificate for witness August 10th, 1801. The license was jjut in aud  objected to by Mr. Taylor. Witness said  they all went to the Jardine caniji.  This ended the plain tills'case. Mr. Taylor then moved lor a non-suit on the following grounds: That if a comract for  j.rosjiecung existed it was done away  with by the assessment contract, that no  contractor agency had been 'proved.  That if trusteeship existed, no proof had  been given that defendants acquired or  obtained means of acquiring the jirojierty  either in course of emjiiOyinoiit as such  agent or through the means of: such  agency; that no proof hail been given  that the defendants either jirospected for,  claimed or loca.ed any mineral claims tis  alleged. If the foregoing be overruled,  counsel argued that the leaches on the  part of the jilaintills are sul'ticieiit to disentitle them to relief, even if the original  agreement existed. Counsel referred at  length to cases bearing ou this point.  Mr. Davie argued that the cases-  cited, referring as they did to parties  who had allowed several years to elap.-,e  before pressing their claims, did not meet  the jiresent circumstances; anil after dealing fully with the other points raised, the  judge disallowed the non-suit, a.s the subject matter of'the action had been sul'li-  ciently jiroved to go to the jury.  Mr. Taylor then ojiened his case and addressed the jury on behalf of the defendants' |)leas. John James Hennessy, examined Oy Mr. Taylor: Arrived at Ainsworth I'roni Kootenai, Idaho, on April 7th,  1801. Prospected for hiniself around Ainsworth ou his own money until end of  June. Middle of July went to southeast  end of Kootenay hike with William Hennessy and Williani Lynch. Returned to  Ainsworth; made trips to Balfour tit own  ex|iense. Went with Al Beebee tintl  Andy Whalon to north fork of Kaslo  creek, returned to Aims worth August 10th,  witness and Whalon furnished the money.  Then to Bine Bell worked for his brother  Bill on assessment. Then on contract  work for Dr. Hendryx with Esteji until  Se|iteiiiber 11th. Then two and a half  days mining on the Number One mine  when he located fractional extension of  Number One, named Rainy Day. Came  to Ainsworth 20th or 21st Sejitember. Heard rumors a.s to a siriKO in  Slocan, and thtit William was going.  Stiid he would go too, but William jiositively refused to allow him. Asked McGuigan to go with him. lie consented  and they started about 10 ji.in. lauding on  on Kaslo beach. William and his jiarty  followed and jiassed them going into the  bay. Witness joined them next niorning.  They were kicking about witness going  in, but having provisions they started in  find were away 10 or 12 days. Met Hendryx on October 1st, at Ainsworth, Conversed with him on the grade of the ore,  assays, etc. Also saw Hayward, talked of  the grade of the ore and told him t hat the  boys had staked him iu the Last Chance.  Thoy wanted him to deed them four-fifth  interest  in   it.   William   said   he would  stand out of that claim find give captain  his share in it, and 'captain..'was to deed  back to McGuigan, Seaton, Flint, and witness one-fifth each.   He said it was all  right, and "it was so afterwards deeded.  After   a   day  or   two    went   back    to  the Slocan  with S. S. Bailley and ME.  Fletcher.   Bailley looked over the Payne  grouj:). Three claims- were located for Fletcher, Bailley and witness.   Then went to  Sjxikane.   Returned  to British Columbia  spring of 1802.   First met Di: Hendryx on  July 4th at Nelson, came therewith William for the sports. In front of the Nelson  hotelWilliani introduced him to the doctor, A. B.  Hendryx and F. -[farrel, and  William also introduced  Hanson to those  gentlemen.   First met Hayward on the  evening of April 8th, 1801, at Ainsworth.-  Never made any agreement either witli  him or Hendryx, nor ever had any con-  versacion with   thein   as  to -agreement.  Received $25 from Hayward which William asked him to ajiply for.   Hayward  said it was a wonder that the doctor did  not leave money for Bill.   Received '.from  Hendryx $S0 for assessment work, $7 for  work at the Blue Bell, and $800i'or his interest in the Last Chance.   That was all  that was due, never had a dollar from him  besides. Between October, 1801, and May,  1802,-had .-no' communication- with either  Hayward or Hendryx.   Met Hendryx towards the fall of 1802 at Kaslo.   .Hecame  with  Parke, witness went with.'them  to  the claims, doctor and witness returned  to Kaslo.   The doctor bought Flint's and  Seatons' interest in the Last Chance. Went  to Pilot Bay at request of the doctor who  offered to buy the mines for $500,000, $20,-  0.0 cash, and to jiut up a concentrator at  the Noble Five.   Witness and his partners  did not agree to that.   The doctor did not.  s j leak of any interest he had in the mines.  Witness said he was going to sell half ofthe Last Chance, and Hay ward had asked  him to sell his share too as he did not  wish to be left hi with  the doctor,   He  said   the   doctor  was   bellyaching  and  chewing the rag about the Last Chance  and he had had to deed him half his share.  This was on the boat in the spring of 1802.  He and his jiartners sold out their interests  in the Last Chance.   The same day at  Hayward's    house,   Hayward  again   re-  jieated what  the  doctor  had  said.   No  mention was made of any interest in the  claim.  Never had any talk with Hendryx  as to a settlement,   lie'never made any  claims.    No such conversation with Hendryx occurred on the way to Kaslo on  October 3rd, 1802, as he states.   He never  spoke of it. He never talked with Jenkins  or Andrews as to the doctor's or Hayward's interest in the claim, nor said he  might have had some of their grub left.  Cross-examined by Mr. Davie:    Came  to   Ainsworth  on   the  steamer  Galena;  might have seen Hayward, but knew no.  one. Met his brotherat Ainsworth, April  Sth, 1801, and was introduced  by liini to  Hayward.   Latter did not make prosjieeting projiosal in his jiresence.   Could  not  have been such a conversation as Hayward states.   Did not meet William with  Hayward and Hendryx on Mayyth; Hayward's statement that they all four went,  to the steamer Galena, and  made a contract  i.s   untrue.    The statements  that  Hendryx asked them not to run uji heavy  bills, anil 'that he arranged to give them  $200; that they were  to have free grub  and transjiortation on the boat were pure  invention.   Denied Hayward's statement  to  same   effect.   Staked   a  claim called  Leadvilie, in May or June, in name of  self, brother, Hendryx, and Hayward;  it  was afterwards called Four ils.   Ou trip  to southeast of Kootenay lake with William and Lynch, was jjartner with Lynch  but not with his brother.   Denies going to  Colfee creek with William and Al  Beebe.  His brother led him  to sujijiose he  wtis  prosjieeting for Hendiyx and  Hayward.  Witness   was  on    hi.s   own   hook,   they  camped together but were ajitirt in   Lhe  daytime.   On   August  8th  or 0th, 1801,  Hendryx  came into tlie  cabin tit Ainsworth with William and told William to  quit pros|iectitig and   that he Imd some  assessment work for him to do; William  agreed but said he wa.s afraid  he had not  done much  good  for   Hendryx. who said  he   was   satislied.     Witness  understood  William   had   been   jirospecting for  the  doctor u|i to that time.  Never prusjicctcd  with l.ste|i in Jardine camp or elsewhere.  Denied   talking   to   Hayward   as   to   rearranging interests in  claim, or that he  had    said    that   "what   William    says,  goes."    Did notsjieak to Hendryx on October Ith.    Remember jitiying fares ou the  steamer Galena several   times; only once  did he not pay when  he was crossing to  the Blue Bell' to  work.    Did   not   know  AI|ierson till the return from Slocan; did  no. tell him locations near  Krao were I'or  Hendryx and   Hayward; never saw him  tit the time Aljicrsnn says this occurred.  Had $200 or $2.0 when he landed at Ainsworth.    Mostly jiaid cash   I'or jirovisions  he bought.   Got $25 I'roni  Hayward  I'or  William, got the money in the pilot-house  ol* the boat; Hay ward's statement about  witness saying he was "busted" i.s ptisi-  tively wrong.    Sevev divided with   Bill  any money latter got from   Hendryx or  Hayward; there were  no money transactions between him and  Bill that year, cx-  cejit temjiorary loans  which were repaid.  Witness gave in detail  order of location  of their various claims, by whom staked  and on whose account.  Williani Hanson, examined by Mr. Taylor: Wa.s in Nelson between July 1st and  5th, I.SOI. Walked with Jack and William  Hennessy past the Nelson hotel. William stop|ied ioshnkc hands with Dr. Hendryx who was .standing there,and William  then introduced his brother -lohn and  witness to A. B. Hendryx find F. Parrel,  wlio were standing then! with the doctor,  who wa.s then also introduced to John.  Cross-examined by Mr. Davie: Knew  .lack   and    William    Hennessy   at    the  time. Both stopjjed tit his hotel, never  sjioke of this introduction to anyone till  McGuigan two or three weeks ago asked  him if he remembered it. Never talked  to William or John about it.  On re-examination said he remembered  the occasion as Franklin- -Farref was said  to be in treaty about the Hall mines, and  there was great interest in- Nelson on the  subject.  Robert Francis Green, examined by Mr.  Taylor: is a general'merchant at Kaslo.  Knowsplaintill'sanddefendants. In April,  1802, met Hendryx on the steamer Galena.  Referring to Olsen's action against the  Hennessys he -said,''"!' think I have as  good a claim or better than Olsen's, but  if the boys wait till 1 bother them they  will wait a long time." Witness understood the doctor to mean that, although  he thought he was entitled to an interest,  he was not going to law to enforce it.  Stephen Samuel Bailley, examined by  Mr. Taylor: Met Hayward at Ainswortli.  Told ii it ti he had purchased a 'half interest  in the Payne grouj) and wished to purchase the other half, and would be glad if  Hayward would purchase Carjienter's interest and write witness, who was going  to S|iokaue. Hayward said he would  be glad to do so. Talked with Hendryx  as to the jiurchase of the Noble Five, lie  said he had offered $500,000 for the grouj),  $20,000 cash. This .'about Christmas, 1802.  ri Cross-examined by Mr. Davie: Paid  ''���$5000 for the Payne group;, to the  whole crowd. Took a $1.0,000 working  bond on the Last'Chance and a $5000 bond  satisfaction for jiroperty in full. Then  bonded the Last Chance with three other  projierties to H. G. Bond of Seattle for  $40,000. G. B.Wright had some interest  both with witness and Bond in the matter.  Wright gave no consideration, but was to  assist in making the sale. $7500 was to be  paid in cash, of which H. G. Bond jiaid  witness a check for $5000, aud G. B. Wright  paid a check for $2500. Witness did not  instigate the suit which Olsen was talking  about bringing against tlie Hennessys.  ,Ou. re-examination,', witness said that  G. B. Wright made a commission out of  him on that deal, but did not know much  11. G. Bond pa id him.  To the jury, witness rejilied that he understood the Last Chance was turning out  a good '-and valuable jiroperty and that  Mr. Bond would have had-good-value for  his$10,000.  John George McGuigan, examined by  Mr. Taylor: On Sejitember 21st, I80l\  Jack Hennessy asked witness to go fora  tri|i with him to follow up his brother into  the Slocan. He said no one was in with  him on it. Started the same night and  got to Kaslo. 'William Hennessy, Flint,  and Seaton came along at 2 a.m. Saw  them next niorning and they kicked  about witness and Jack going in witli  them, witness and Jack agreeed not to  stake anything until they had staked the  extensions of tlio Payne. They had au  understanding among themselves as to  how they should stake. All arrived at  McGuigan basin on Sejitember 21th. Next  day while Bill Hennessy, Seaton, and  Flint were staking the north and south  extensions of the Pti3rne, he and Jack  Hennessy discovered that the ledge ran  crosswise of the Payne, and when they  returned lie was engaged in staking the  Maid of Erin, which was the west extension of the Payne ledge. Other claims  were then staked as extensions, and it  wa.s agreed that the jiarty have  equal interests -in all claims located.  The other claims were located  as agreed. Returned to Ainsworth  Sejitember 30th. Martin had got assays  and found the ore run pretty good. Sent  sain|)les to Dr. Hendryx to the Blue Bell,  (witness identified as his own handwriting  the jiap-or which was enclosed in tne bag,  tind whicli was jiroduccd by the |ilaintiffs  early in the case.) On October 1st, 1.801.  met Dr. Hendryx and Jack. Witness  drew a diagram, on the ground showing  locations. The doctor said that the two  Hennessys find witness had better record  the tliree claims in their separate names  so tis to avoid transfers. Saw Hendryx at  Pilot Bay in October or November.'' J 802.  Hendryx said lie wished to buy the Noble  Five. 'They asked $500,000, imd $50.(XX)  cash. The doctor did not say that he had  any interests in the claims, nor ever fit any  other time. In November, 1802, went to  Pilot Bay with Jack ami Williani to sell  their interest in the Last Chance. Hendryx then olfered $10,000 cash on the  Noble Five deal, but did not say anything  as to buying a |��nrtion of the Noble Five.  lie said nothing as to his having any interest in the claims. Thatday Hayward,  in his own house, said they weve to do  the same with his interest in the Last.  Chance, as Ihey did with their own. as lie  did not wish to stay in with the doctor  who had been chewing the rag about it.  Cross-examined by Mr. Davie: In an  fiction brought against witness iu the  matter of the Ruby Silver claim he  Iiad to refund the de|)osit which had been  |ifiid. Hendryx never suggested that it  would be better for them to have the  claims in their own names sons to easily  settle with Williani.  Williani Hennessy, examined by Mr.  Taylor: Saw Hendryx on May 5th; said  he was going to send him $100 by the eaji-  tuin, find if witness saw anything worth  bonding he was to secure it; also .said if  witness wanted any money at anytime  lie was to go find get it. Ciider that, arrangement witness worked till August.  20t.h. Made three locations and recorded  theitiMfiylll.h. Then prospected Colfee  crook, and near Krao camp. In June, I'or  two weeks prospected near the Highland  mine. There was no meeting between  May ls(. Mini ..th, on the sleniner as to  |iros|ii'cting, with witness and Jack, as  Hendryx and Hayward state, Returned  to Ainsworth July 1st, got no money from  Hendryx or Hayward up to that time.  First got money from Hayward. $50 for  bonding Reciprocity claim, about August  1st. The cajitain also jiaid him .$25 through  Jack, also $100_after the settlement with  the doctor in October.   No other money  was received from the captain.   On me to  Nelson July 3rd, and stayed  to, July 5th  or (5th ; saw Hendryx on  the -Ith; he' was  with A. B. Hendryx and ���Franklin' Farrel;  was with John and Willliam  Hanson; introduced Jiiiin to the doctor, A. B. Hendryx and Franklin Farrel, iind Hanson to  the last two named.   John never met Dr.  Hendryx before that clay.-.'Made a triji  with   Jonn  and   William   Lynch   to the  south end of the hike early in July.   Returned about July 25th.   Met  Hendryx  again   on  August  0th, went  to  Olsen's  cabin witli him. His brotherand Kenneth  McLeod were there. '..The.-doctor .said, "J  don't want you to jirospeet any more this  season.'   I want, you to go .'and  work for  'wage's on assessment work.   1 want you  to put Kenneth McLeod to work, and will  send yon two more men from Kootenai.  Idaho, James Esteii and  Charles Soder-  green."   The doctor also "named. William  Pearce.   He said,  "I want you  to "show  Parke the-.different jiropyrties at"Ainsworth, and at the same time not to let it  interfere with your going on with your  ���assessment-, work."     The  doctor named  four or five properties witness was to start  on, and told him to go to the gold cominis-  sioner ami ask 'permission to do the assessment work for two adjoining-claims ou  one claim.   Began August "Uth.    Parke  came    and   witness    went    with    him  many times over   the  claims. : Kept  ou  till Se|iteinber 21st, when he quit working  on the Black II iwk, leaving two or three  days work . luiinlshed.   Gave tinie book  to J. M. ���Martin to be given to Hendryx  who��� was out of the country.   AVent to  Ainsworth aud met Seaton, Olsen, and  Flint.   They had agreed to make a trip to  the Slocan, and left that night:(execpt  Olsen) about 10:30 or  II  p.m.:  Told Jack  he did not wauthimgoalongashehadbecu  knocking about find foundnothing. 'Witness said he did  not know exactly where  he was going, and refused to take Jack iu  his boat as he had agreed to go in with  the other three men.    Olsen backed out  anci won Id-not go.   J. L. Seaton was one ?���  of the first discoverers of the Payne mine  with Eli   Carjienter.   Saw  some  galena  which 'Seaton.'had   brought down  and  which looked good,   it ran  175 ounces in  silver.   On  the  strength   of  this, hired  Seaton   to  show  him   the   Payne mine.  They reached Kaslo  that night, and  in  the niorning Jack and   McGuigan came  into their camjj.'  Witness still objected  to their coming withhim, but it was afterwards agreed thtit witness should stake  one extension of the Payne grouji, and  Seaton the other, after that it was to be  every man for himself.  After staking the  extensions, the}'till five staked the Northern Belle, and thtit night agreed   that all  should be equal jiartners.    Staked several  claims, and returned to Kaslo about October 1st.    All five returned to Ainsworth.  Witness gave ore to Bryan to be assayed,  and it turned out good.  The doctor asked  Witness to give him samjilesof all the ore  for A. B. Hendryx and   Franklin Farrel.  Thinks    McGuigan   got   the    returns   of  the assays, one of which ran 750 ounces.  Talked with Hendryx the day hecame iu  as to tiie ore and all about  it.   Thought  lie  had  made a great strike.   Also met  Hayward, told him of the triji and the  richness of  the  ore,  find   that  we.had  staked the .Last Chance in his name, and  the Galena, iu his and ilendryx's name. In  the talk, of May 5th, 1801, with the doctor;  does not remember the doctor saying he  was too busy to audit accounts, nor discussion a.s to names on stakes.    Does not  remember.saying that he would not go iu  with Hendryx  unless Hayward   went iu  ���too.   Jack  wa.s not jiresent at  this talk  with Hayward find Hendryx.   At dinner  ou the boat, Aljierson anil  all  the crew  were jiresent aud witness was invited to   ,  join.   Thinks he  did   tell   Hayward   he  would be till right, as he was located ou  the Last Chance find Galena, the former  running over 300 ounces in silver.    At the  meeting at the Blue Bell on October 5th,  I.SOI,  where witness met  the doctor, Al  Beebe, Kloch, and Parkes in the doctor's   .  office, Hendryx said nothing as to his interest   in   the   other   claims.    He   never  asked for any interest iii these claims nor  talked of  it.   The doctor settled up balance then due I'or assessment or jiros|)ect-  ing  work.    Then   went  to  Spokane and  Miniie;t|)olis and was away fill the winter.  Retui ned in April. 1,802, and met Hendryx  about May Ith.    lie then said he lhoiig.it  he could lix a deal I'or the sale of the Noble  Five,   'ihe doctor did not then claim any  interest in the mines.    Nothing was stud  about it nor as to a division of-interests.  It is untrue that Hendiyx said they were  to kee|i the claims in their own mimes and  not divide up with  Flint and Seaton: no  such conversation  took jilfice.   Saw Hendryx in fall of l>S02: he said he would handle  the jiro|)erties and   wrote witness a  letter  | produced |  dated   November 7th,  1802.   Ou   that  went to  Pilot Bay  with  Jack  and   McGuigan.     Hendryx  said  he  could make the deal I'or the Noble Five on  the basis of a jirice of $500,000, $10,000 cash.  McGuigan, witness, and his brother to retain onc-twenty-fourt h each,or one-eighth  iu all.   Came to no conclusion.    Met Hendryx again in S|)okane in   February, 1803.  The doctor said lit: could consummate the  deal, iiaying1.20,000 cash  find $100,000 for  .Flint's find .Scaton's interest.  Cross-examined by Mr. Davie: First  talked to Hendryx about coining in  next season to jirospeet fit Blue Bell. Said  he would work with the doctor iu jirospecting; did not say he would, bring iu  Jack to go into joint arrangenieni; it  might have been so but be did not remember it. He wrote Hendryx September  Uth find November Kith and 21st. iutciid-  iu to work jointly with bini.

Remembers meeting John April Sth,  at Ainsworth; then introduced him to  Hayward; there was no talk of prospect--  ing. Met Hendryx April hlth, and talked  of jirosjiecting; Jack not present; made  bargain with -Hendryx. Had no joint -arrangement with his brother while jiros-  jiecting round Ainsworth.; Told.Hendryx  he would not work for less than $100 a  month, which he had,been paid by others.  Witness now thinks conversation was  after his-April pros|iecting .trip, though  he said before'the'examiner that it was  before. Bought grub from Nelson while  camjied at Krao: got no goods i'roni  Fletcher, at Ainsworth, between 1st and  15th of May, though he may have sent for  .some. Did not share grub.-expenses witli  John. Conversation with Hendryx took  place Ajiril Hth, being about a week after  his brother's arrival. Jack and Beebe  cooked iu turn at Krao. .Jack was not  without money; be did uot jiay .hick's  bills; did not remember paying $5 on  Jack's account on bill iiroduce'd, showing  receipt of that amount from witness.  Gave receipt for $125 to captain Hayward.  along about August at Ainsworth on the  boat. ���'Did''not go through the books before giving it; did not receive .small sums  up to $100 before July Kith from Hayward.  Did not work on the Maid on May 22nd.  Did not tell McKinnon me and Jack were  working for Hendryx tmd Hayward.  Never did'any prosjjecting work I'or them  with his brother. Signed the receijit for  ft 125 '���Hennessy Brothers." but could not.  explain Avhy. On July .4th, went with  Jack to Nelson on boat. Don't think Jack-  got $25 that clay from Hayward. Think  Jack paid his fare to Nelson, as he had  company with him. McKinnon did not  tell the truth if he said he came uji when  witness and Jack were working together  on the Maid. Early in August lleudryx  told him at Ainsworth to quit jirosjiecting for the season, and asked nie to show  Parks over the claims, saying that need  not interfere with the assessment work;  he did not mention this before the examiner because he was not asked. Denied  saying that he could go back and forth  and could get Jack and fly at any time.  Never jirospected any more for Hendryx  or Hayward; considered he was discharged. Does not know that Jack did  any prospecting for them. Did not send  l.s'tep prospecting for them, but sent McLeod for himself. He bought license for  Estep and latter went with McLeod, but  on his own account. Told McLeod if he  found anything good he could put the  boys' names in, and Hendryx's and Hayward's names.might have been on the list  lie gave him. if Estep said witness sent  him out lie said what wtis untrue. The  Four H's was located late in July or early  in August, and Jack had testified that it  was recorded the clay after it was staked.  Did not tell Harmon he had been prospecting for the doctor aud captain all summer. Before starting for Slocan on the  2lst Sejitember, Hayward asked him if lie  had any money. Did not say he would  give the Indians orders on Hayward for  packing; said he was going to pay the Indians hiniself. Staked claim for Hayward because he thought he was out half  witness's salary for prospecting. Hayward never told him to quit jirosjiecting,  but witness told him what the doctor said  about it, and Hayward said it was all  right.  Did not see Jack and McGuigan start  for Kaslo. They went about an hour and  a half before witness. Objected to Jack's  going with them because witness had  agreed to jiay these men to show him into  the country. It was about twenty minutes before witness started that he told  Jack he was going, though witness pre-  -viously said that Jack had started an hour  or an hour an a half before him. Could  not exjilain this discrepancy. Hendryx  asked for samples of the ore and witness  sent him some. Put it on the steamer to  go to the Blue Bell. If Alperson says that  witness told him he could have all the ore  except one sack, which was the doctor's,  he says what is untrue. When he met  Hayward on board steamer, witness -said  they had all they wanted and Hayward  would have to do no more steamboating.  Said it because Hayward was located on  two claims as good as any in the country  and would be likely to make lots of money  out of them. Swore before the examiner:  "I did not tell Hayward that we had all  we wanted and that he would not have to  do any more steamboating. I swear positively to this." Could not explain contradiction. If he swore it, it wtis untrue.  Never conteinjilated thtit Hayward would  be in with him on any other claims than  those they located iu his name. Never  thought Hayward would be in with him  after he returned from the Slocan, but a  letter of January Kith, 1802. witness writing to Hayward said: "Old Mac and I  will make a triji this season; you will be  in it." Hendryx did not ask as to locating  claims to avoid defiling back and forth,  and denied telling Hendryx there wa.s an  agreement between hiniself and jiartners  to that effect. But said before the examiner, "I might have said this to him; I  will uot swear I did not;so tell him." Will  now swear he has no recollection. Does  not remember telling lleudryx witness  had slick jiartners find had work to get his  name on the stakes; will not swear he did  not so tell him. Had $210 from Hendryx  for prosjieeting. Settled with Hendryx  on October 4th finally, but. did not record  assessments till October 15th. Quit working on the Black Hawk before assessment  was finished because of the information  he heard as to the Slocan. It was not  agreed with Hendryx that he could quit  at any time, but he said before the examiner that he had a right to quit when he  jileased. Was superintending work and  did not give over charge to anyone else.  He-examined by Mr. Taylor: Got the  $25 from Hayward through Jack in order  to bond fi claim; did not do it, but sjicnt  money on |iowder, fuse find ca|is.  David Prosser Kane, examined by Mr.  Taylor: Lives at Kaslo. Talked with  Haywood in October or November, I8!)L  lie said the boys had staked a coti|ile of  claims for him'and (lie doctor, and named  the Last Chance. Talked of the Noble  Five and Payne groups, but Hayward did  not say that he had any interest iu them.  JI. F. Green, re-examined by Mr. Taylor:  Produced a journal in which under dale  Sejitember 2Jst, JH0I, were entries against  (John Hennessy for $5, and agianst Wil  liam Hennessy and Flint jointly .$6./o.  The latter bill, was passed to Flints account because William Hennessy had no  account, and it was paid on October 7th.  John's account for $5 was also paid about  the same date. . _  Albert Smith Beebe, examined by Mr.  Taylor: Went with Aljiersou to the Crescent and Eden mines. Do not know the  time, but was in June or July.  John Madden Martin, examined by Mr.  Taylor: On Septembtr ��� 21st, Williani,  Hennessy gave witness a book to give to  McLeod; did not look inside it, does not  recognise the book produced, but it looks  like the one handed him by ..Hennessy.  John Hennessy, cross-examined by Mr.  Davie:-Bought rubber.coat from Fletcher  ic Co. of Ainsworth, in May, 1801, cost $5;  it was charged.���' ��� Book produced and  it was found to be $1.50.  By Mr. Taylor: Gave money to his  brother to jiay for it.  .'William Hennessy, re-called and cross-  examined by Mr. Davie: McLeod and  Estep had to go up the lake in a boat fifteen miles, when they went out prosjieeting. Harmon and Kloch went with them  to bring back the boat. Pearce wanted to  go. Did not tell Pearce that McLeod and  Fstep were going on behalf of the doctor  and the captain, nor that Harmon would  be in it too, as he had found part of the  grub.  William Pearce, re-called in rebuttal  and examined by Mr. Davie: McLeod  tind Estep went from the Blue Bell in a  boat with Sodergren, Kloch and Harmon.  Harmon was watchman at the Blue'Bell,  find Kloch an assayer.. Saw William when  he told witness of the strike in the Bren-  nan camp. He wanted some men to go  unci chose Estep and McLeod. Asked him  how the men were going out, whether for  himself or i'or the doctor. He said he was  sending them out for the doctor. Witness  said if there was a chance to get anything  he was willing to pay his share of. the  expenses. William said that Harmon,  Kloch and Parks were all in it. That the  doctor would pay for the men going out,  but gave no encouragement to witness  as being in if a strike was made.  George Harmon, recalled and examined  in rebuttal by Mr. Davie: Rowed McLeod  and Estep up the lake with Kloch and  Sodergren. No deduction in his wages  whilstTaway.   Furnished all the grub.  By Mr. Taylor: All were in alike to  share expense and profits.  W. A. Hendryx, recalled and examined  in rebuttal by Mr. Davie: Went east  March 17th, 1801. was in Chicago on April  lith, 1891, aud returned to Kootenai,  Idaho, on April 19th. Arrived at Nelson  on April'28.li ; was at Ainsworth on May  5th.  Dr. Labau, examined by Mr. Davie: On  July "3rd, 1891, there was an excursion  from Nelson to Ainsworth.: Fares were  charged and tickets issued. Was on the  boat with Williani and John Hennessy,  on the return trip. Saw John Hennessy  get money from Charlie Cole by instruction of captain Hayward; the money was  paid in the jiilot-house.  To Mr. Taylor: Witness said he remembered the circumstance because he was  one of the excursion committee, anc^ was  in the jiilot-house jiayiug the hire of the  steamer when he heard Hayward tell  Cole to give Jack $25.  Charles Albert Wright, examined by  Mr. Davie: Identified counter blotter of  Fletcher <fc Co., i'roni March Sth, 1891, to  May 24th, 1801. Ou May 5th, one rubber  coat, $4.50, is entered against Hennessy.  Egbert Tangier Steele, examined by Mr.  Wifson: Grub-staked William Hennessy  in 1889. Agreement was in writing, but  it was probably burnt in the Spokane fire  as I have been unable to find it. Was to  find money to keep him in the mountains  during the season. He was to give witness half of all he found. Gave him supplies and $100 in cash when he started  out. Not true that he agreed to give  William $100 a month, as stated by the  latter in his evidence before the examiner.  He afterwards got $50 and $100 and was  out two or three months. He returned to  Sjiokane find asked for money, which witness refused, as he considered that lie had  already paid enough to keep him out for  the season. He located two or three  claims, but they were of no account.  Ira Jenkins, re-called and examined in  rebuttal by Mr. Davie: On October 2(5th,  1801. neither John nor Williani Hennessy  jiaid any fares while on the boat.  Cross-examined by Mr. Taylor: Produced fare book showing that John and  Bill did not pay fares on date named.  Besides them, he had orders to jiass Beebe,  Aljiersou, and some others on the boat.  The arrangement between Hendryx and  captain Gray of the Sjiokane, for a $5 fare  between Bonner's Ferry and the lake, did  not come into eil'ect until the s|iring of  1802.  Mr. Taylor then addressed the jury for  the defendants, occujiying about au hour  and a quarter, find wtis followed by Mr.  Davie for the jilaintilfs, speaking about  two hours. Mr. justice Urease then summed uji. Mr. Davie moved for sjiecilic  questions to be jmt to the jury, which was  done. Mr. Taylor handed in directions,  which he suggested should be given the  jury, but they were not acted on. The  jury retired and after an, interval of two  hours, on the reassembling of the court,  brought in the following verdict:  1. That there was a prosjieeting agreement made between tlie plaintiffs and  William Hennessy during the month of  May, 1,801.  2. That there was no prosjieeting agreement made between tlie jilaintilfs and  John Hennessy during the month of May,  1891, or fit any other time during the year  1801.  ii. That by the jirosjiecting agreement  entered into' between the plaintiffs and  William Hennessy, the plaintiffs were entitled to an equitable share in all interests  in mineral claims acquired by William  Hennessy while |)ros|>ecting during the  year I.SOI, subsequent to tho time the  agreement was made, and that an equitable share is one-half of such interests.  I.   That each party pay their own costs.  Whether the verdict of the jury will be  acco|ited by the parties is not known.  There i.s talk on the street that both  parties fire dissatisfied, and that an ap-  jieal will be taken. The costs amount to  over $5000.  PUBLISHERS' NOTICE.

ADDRESS all communications to  THE TRIBUNE, Nelson, IV C.  ��te ��ribmu\  SATURDAY MORNING.........SEPTKMBER 22, 1891  OPPOSITION   PLATFORM.  The opposition -members of the legislature, .-with the exception of Mr. Graham  of East Yale and Mr. Hume of South  Kootenay, met at Vancouver on Monday  and organized by choosing Mr. Semlin of  West Yale as their leader. They also  adopted the following platform:  1. That the distribution of parliamentary representation throughout the province be established and maintained on a  uniformly'equitable basis, giving a larger  proportion of representation to the more  thinly settled districts, no distinction being made between Island and Mainland.  2. That the secrecy of the ballot shall  be absolutely secure in every instance and  and no means be afforded���by numberiifg  of the ballot or otherwise���of ascertaining how any vote has been recorded. '  3. That the linancial and general policy  of provincial governments shall be closely  scrutinized. ���  4. The ordinary expenditure of the  province shall be so regulated as to avoid  annual deficits.  5. That all provincial or ordinary expenditures shall be made solely under the  sanction of the legislative assembly.  G. That any infringement of the constitutional rights of the people by the executive council shall be jealously guarded  against.  7. That candidates for election to the  legislative assembly be not required to  furnish other qualifications than that they  are bona fide electors.  8. That the land laws shall prevent  land monopoly, and encourage a numerous  settleuientof bona fide cultivating owners.  9. That the agricultural and industrial  resources of the province shall be developed by the making of trunk roads and  trails and the building of bridges, and by  other works necessary for such development.  10. That the mining laws be reformed  so as to develop the mineral resources of  the province and give encouragement to  prospectors.  11. That no royalty be levied on the  timber coining off preemption claims of  bona fide cultivating settlers.  12. That periodical open meetings of  electors be called and addressed by nieni-  .bers of the legislature and other speakers  conversant with the political affairs of  the day.  13. That during sessions of the legislature full information shall be furnished  by this association to local committees as  to the progress of measures and all other  matters interesting to electors.  14. That all election clays be declared  legal holidays.  15. That provincial aid granted to railways or other profit earning undertakings shall carry with it, as a general rule,  corresponding value interest in such undertakings.  Hi. That the employment of alien labor  on provincial public works shall be practically prohibited, find that every reasonable legislative endeavor be made to  further restrict the importation of coolie  contract labor.  17. That no guarantee of interest or  principal on the bonds of the British Pacific railway be given until approval by  a majority of tho votes of the electors of  the province.  The choice of leader was the best that  could be made, to avoid friction in the  house. The platform is not one on which  a light can be made before the people. It  reads more like the work of country  school teachers than the work of business  men and practical politicians. If the opposition leaders cannot do better work,  they stand a poor show of ousting the  Davie government from power.  Napoleon Fitzstubbs, who holds a  responsible ollice in West Kootenay, was  asked last week if he had carried a "dead  man " on the Nakusp & Slocan payroll for  the month of June, 1892, but he has failed  to answer the question. When he was  asked a similar question, for a like offence  in August, 1892, it took him six months in  which to make answer. Will it take him  six months to answer the second charge?  If so, the pationce of the people may be  strained a trifle.   Mining a Safe Pursuit.  In commercial enterprises it is estimated  that over eighty per cent of the persons  engaged make failures at one time or  another. It is frequently said that mining is a purely speculative undertaking,  attended with such risks as no prudent  man would take, yet we doubt even with  all the misfortunes that befall the improvident, the thriftless, the worthless, and  the intemperate, who engage in it, the  percentage of loss in mining operations is  greater than that in ordinary business.  At any rate the census statistics show  that tho.mining, states of the northwest  have a greater wealth per capita than  any other states in the union. Mining in  recent years has been reduced to a science  and the element of luck in it has been  very small. Tlie yield of our mines has  steadily increased; each succeeding-year  has witnessed the introduction of labor-  saving (levices and closer economies. Men  trained in the best methods and schools  have taken the place of the unskilled and  extravagant, and properties that once  could not bo'worked because of low-grade  ores are now payers of handsome dividends. Experienced men now go into  mining with as much certainty oi" return  as men who go into other occupations.  Of course the greenhorn and the tenderfoot are still plucked by the unscrupulous,  but not more so than tuey are in commercial enterprises iu older sections of the  country.

Rumors have been current ever since  the election that the record office at  Ainsworth would be removed to Kaslo, in  accordance with the terms of a deal that  had been arranged, previous to the election, between the government and its  chief henchmen at Kaslo. Little credence  'was given to the rumors, as the removal  of. the office from Ainsworth was  lookeel on as an event not likely to take  place, even if the removal had been made  an ante-election pledge. But all rumors,  in which the present government is in any  way involved, are likely to turnout true.  The office .was this week removed from  Ainsworth to Kaslo, the record books and  papers being transferred on Monday by  acting recorder ilashdall to John Keen,  who is acting as recorder at Kaslo, and  who, no doubt, will be the recorder. There  was no necessity for the change, and the  removal will work a hardship on the owners of mineral claims around Ainsworth,  where fully half the locations in the  Ainsworth mining division are situate, if  the government had wished to accommodate all the claim owners in the division,  it would long since have established a  record office at Kaslo, the recorder being  paid by a commission on the receipts of  the office, as is done in several other mining divisions in YVest Kootenay. There is  no question but that the establishment of  a record office at Kaslo will be to the advantage of the owners of claims on Kaslo  river and its tributaries; but there is also  no question that the closing of the office at  Ainsworth will work to the disadvantage  of the owners of claims in what is locally  known as Hot Springs camp, if the government will act on a suggestion that is  prompted solely for the good of the people  of Ainsworth division, it will at once  order the record books and papers back  to Ainsworth, where there is a commodious government building, and appoint a  local man recorder on commission; then  establish a new division with Kaslo as the  record office, and appoint a local man as  recorder on commission. The expense  will, in the aggregate, be less than has  been previously paid, and the people will  be better served.  It is to be Hoped the Deal is Made.  U. W. McVicar of Nova Scotia, who is  working the Mamie claim, in Ainsworth  district, has made a careful examination of the Skyline mine, in the same district, and is said to be very auxious to  purchase it. The Skyline is owned by A.  W. McCune of Salt Lake, Utah, and is  developed by a 200-foot shaft, from the  bottom of whicli a crosscut taps the ledge,  on which drifts were run both ways.  There are other workings, from which  considerable high-grade ore was shipped.  The ore is classed as dry. No work has  been done on the mine for two years, and  none is likely to be done on it in 'the near  future unless it changes ownership. It is  said that the price offered and accepted is  $100,000 cash. Mr. McVicar is now at Nelson and will leave for Nova Scotia tomorrow.   The Reco.  Considerable activity is shown at the  Reco mine, in the Slocan district. The  second-class dump of last winter's work is  being assorted and sacked. A winze is  being sunk below the upper tunnel level,  125 feet from the entrance, and is in 2 feet  of solid ISO-ounce galena, besides carbonates. A new vein of galena one foot in  width, was found a few days since near  the east side line and on the Reco claim,  which runs entirely through the ground.  Engineer Perry and assistants are making  surveys of the remainder of the Reco  group for crown grants, two claims of the  group having been surveyed before. Five  hundred tons will be the Reco's contribution to the world's wealth from the Slocan  tlie coming winter.  Will Make a Sleigh Road.  Several tenders were put in for building  the wagon road from Three Forks to the  mouth of Cody creek, but it is said that  only one was accompanied by a certified  check, as was required by the notice calling for the tenders. It is also said that  the tenders are all considered too high, or  are in excess of the amount available for  the work. The amount available for the  work Wfis surely known before tenders  were called for���and the probable cost  was also known���then why were tenders  called i'or at all? It is now said that a  wagon road will not be built, but that  enough work will be done this fall to make  the jiresent trail a good sleigh road.  A Bank of Good Gravel.  For the last two weeks the Nelson Hydraulic Mining Company, on Forty-nine  creek, has been pipingon a bank of gravel  that gives good returns. About 100yards  a day are run through the sluice-boxes,  and the bank is of considerable extent.  There is not enough water, however, in  the creek to work to good advantage.

To the Editor of The Trihuxj.: I  have just got back from Hunter creek,  where I went to see the Cleveland mine the  Colville Index was blowing so much about.  Well it is a big showing for the amount of  development work. They liave stripped  the vein, or deposit as J would call it, 21  feet wide 10 feet deep and 15 feet long.  There are about 150 tons of clean 01 eon the  dump. The vein is solid ore of argentiferous galena, antimony, zinc blend, copper  and gold; the ore assays from 20 to 100  ounces of silver per ton. It is a blind deposit aud cannot be traced over .(X) feet.  There is a strata of 10 feet of galena in  the center of the vein that assays 80  ounces silver, and 00 per cent lead per ton.  I think theantimonyand zinc will finally  give out as they sink down. The mine is  at the head of 'Hunter creek, a tributary  of the Columbia river, seventy miles west  of Sjiokane and seventeen miles from  Springdale, which will be the shipping  point. It is in a spur of the Huckleberry  range of mountains, on the south end, in  doliniteormagnesian limestone, and may  be a contact with slate���not enough work  clone yet to tell. The mine is bonded to  some Denver parties for three years on  tlie following terms and stipulations:  They pay the owners lof the mine $2500  clown, and bind themselves to take out  and ship 100 tons per day, with ten days  grace, for tliree years, and pay the owners  of the mine $1 per ton for every ton taken  out and shipped!; to commence work on  the mine October 1st, and have the wagon  road surveyed to Springdale road, whieh  i.s only six miles and a clown grade. The  ore will be hauled in wagons to that place  and shipped tothe.smelterovertheSpokane  & Northern railway. The price they pay  for the mine at the expiration of three  years is $.150,000, or they throw up the  contract and the mine reverts back to the  original owners. 1 may go buck there,  but will know in a few days. I think it  will be a good district in time.   There  were about forty men in the camp when ���&  I was there, not miners or prospectors,-but  hayseeders from Davenport and the Big  Bend country.: The country is staked off  for five miles in all directions, regardless  of mineral. 1 never saw anything like it.  I did not see anything outside of the  Cleveland mine that promised any merit,  still 1 think there are other prospects that  will be found as good as the Cleveland or  better, for the formation looks well for  mineral. This is all I know about the  Hunter Creek mines.   John W. Bi.adh.  Summit Mine, Stevens county,  Washington, September 17th, IStU.  What is There For Our Women to Do?

A remarkable story,'touched with niys-  ' story, tragic in detail and filled with the  pathos of a remorseless fate, came the  other day from the Utah penitentiary.  Enoch Davis, under sentence of death for  wife murder, to save himself from the  gallows, had broken a silence of years and  told a singular tale of a lost mine of i'abu-'  lous richness hidden in one of the deep  canyons of the Wasatch niountains, as to  whose whereabouts he among the living  alone possesses the secret. Years ago,  when Brighaiu Voting was still all-powerful in Utah, he was informed by an old  California miner, named hid ward Rhodes,  of a rich mine which the latter had discovered and which he craved permission  to work. However, it was the unswerving policy of Young to prevent the opening of; mines within the domains of the  Saints,-and Rhodes was ordered by his  leader not to attempt to work his claim  or divulge the secret to any one. Being a  devout Mormon, he faithfully obeyed this  command until his last illness, when ho  told the story to his son. .Twenty  years ago this son, John lihodes, resolved to visit the mine, lie never returned and was supposed to have been  killed by Indians. Sow Davis, the wife  murderer, discloses that he accompanied  the younger Rhodes to the mine and  found that it confirmed in every way the  description of its discoverer. On the return journey Rhodes was killed by a band  of wandering' Indians, and Davis escaping kept silent as to the fate of his companion through fear that he would be  charged with his death. Davis has offered,  if his life is spared, to guide a jjarty to the  mine. His story has caused great excitement in Utah, where many old miners  are settled and several parties have already set out to find and work the mine.  Tlie manner iu which Davis's story has  been received iu Utah strikingly illustrates  one of the most remarkable features of  mining life. Wherever miners congregate  in these latter clays, mines'of great richness, which have been discovered only  . to be speedily lost, is a subject sure  sooner or later to come up for discussion,  and scores of hardy and resolute men have  worn out their lives in weary and fruitless  searches for these golden will o' the wisps.  No story of this kind is more thrilling or  familiar to miners than that of the famous  Lost Cabin mine. .Many lives have been  lost and years wasted in searching for it,  but its mystery, after a lapse of thirty  years, remains as baffling aud perplexing  as ever. In the spring of ISO., Allen Ilurlbert, a miner who had gained much experience but small profit in the gold fields  of California, found himself in Walla  Walla, where he feil in with two miners  bearing, respectively, the names of Jones  and Cox. The trio secured an outfit tind  provisions for an exploring trip to the  eastern slope of the Rockies, and after a  long and difficult journey, reached the  banks of the Yellowstone. Here they built  a raft on which they floated down to the  Big Horn river. As the country through  which they were moving swarmed with  hostile Indians, they were compelled to  travel principally at night, a precaution  which prevented them from getting au  accurate idea of the country, and so they  weve ignorant of both the name and location ofthe range of mountains which one  morning they found looming up in front  of them. They landed and set to work in  a gulch in tlie side of the mountain. Almost the first stroke of the pick revealed  a rich vein of pay. A shaft was sunk to  the bedrock a lew feet below, gold  boing found all the way down, llulbert  and his companions resolved to spend the  winter in developing their claim. A jiortion of the provisions, which they had  brought from Walla Walla, still remained  and game was' plentiful. They fulled  trees, threw a dam across the creek which  ran through the ravine, erected sluice  ways and daily worked their claim with  feverish eagerness from early dawn until  nightfall. When the approach of cold  weather forced them to suspend operations, they had gathered nearly two  bushels of nuggets and gold dust.  The fortunate miners now built a cabin,  fortifying it with stockades, in which  they passed the winter months. When  tlie spring sun unlocked the waters of the  creek, they hurried back to tlieir sluice  boxes and worked harder than ever. One  day Ilurlbert left the sluices to go to tlie  cabin on some errand, lie had barely hist  sight of his companions before he hoard  the sharp report of a number of rides, and  Jones and Cox lay dead on the ground.  From the top of "the tree in whicli he  sought refuge, Ilurlbert saw the Indians,  who had discovered the miners' rotroat,  sculp and mutilate his companions and  then rifle their cabin of everything in  sight.  After the Indians had gone Ilurlbert left his hiding place,' hastily collected  a small supply of food, filled his knapsack  with gold, buried the remainder, and'then  set off on foot in a direction opposite to  that taken by tho Indians. He wandered  for days through a strange, wild country,  which he had never seen before, and  finally, from a. lofty precipice, espied the  wide stretch of ojien prairie. Ho struck  boldly, out over the prairie and. tliree  weeks later reached the North Platte  river a short distance from Fort Laramie,  where he fell in with a band of gold-  hunters hastening to the newly discovered  mines of Montana. He told his story to  Ids new found friends and they persuaded  him to lead them, if possible, to the claim  from which he had lied in fear of Ins life  a few weeks before.' The, jiarty which  numbered several hundred souls, including women and children, wandered from  place to place until winter came on, but  no trace or sign of the Lost Cabin mine  was over discovered, and iu the end Ilurlbert narrowly escaped.-'lynching at the  hands, of those who regarded themselves  as his victims. He was last seen in Virginia City, Montana, iii the autumn of  ISO!. Hardly a. year" has since' passed'  ���without some new band of prospectors  setting but to find the Lost Cabin mine,  but its location is still a mystery and may  remain so for many a year to come.  I .finally strange and tragic is the story  of the Lost Gunsight ledge.   In the .summer of 185-1 a party of immigrants reached  Salt Lake City on their way to California.  Here they were persuaded to follow what  was known as tlie southern route, across  the Colorado river and into the terrible  and then little known desert of the same  name.    Their  stock   was   so   worn  and  wasted that it was with serious misgivings the immigrants essayed to cross the  desert, and  in a few days reached the  dreary waste of Death valley.   One by  one as they went ou their worn horses  and oxen they fell by the wayside to rise  no more, aud one by one they were forced  to abandon   their  wagons.   Then death  and famine stole in among tho little band,  and  the weaker ones, perishing in quick  succession, were buried  where they fell.  Finally tho survivors'scant stores were  exhausted and no water could be found.  Within a mouth the party was reduced to  four moii.   But there was no chance for  retreat, and though dying by inches, the  survivors pressed on  toward the southwest.   One night while camping near a  rocky ledge, one of the men discovered  that the sight on the muzzle of his rifle  had been in some way loosened aud lost.  Searching for something with which to  rejilace it, he noticed a whitish metallic  substance in the rock close at hand, and  securing a piece of it he speedily whittled  out antl fitted into his rifle a clumsy substitute for the lost sight.   The "following  morning without particularly npticiug the  locality.of the  camp, the. four men  resumed their journey.   Two of them, falling by the way, died during the following  week, and only two survivors of a jjarty  numbering several hundred souls finally,  reached a settlement in the Los Angeles.:  valley.   Here the sight which the amateur gunsmith had carved   in the desert  attracted theattentionof.au old  miner,  who at once pronounced it jjure native  silver, and eagerly inquired where it had  been found.   The man told  how it had  come into his possession, but aside from  the fact,that there seemed to be an abundance of the ore, could give only scanty  information as to the locality of the ledge  from which it had been taken.   A careful  ���computation of the number of miles probably covered by the unfortunate men, together with a reckoning of the number of  flays thoy had wandered after leaving the  camp, enabled a general idea to be formed  of the probable location of the ledge.   A  jirosjiecting party was at once organized  and a careful search made for what has  ever since been known as theGuns.ight  lode, but failure attended this first ef'fort  as well as the numerous ones which have  since been made to locate the rich deposit,  and  the mystery surrounding the Gun-  sight lode is still as close and inscrutable  as that of the Lost Cabin mine. ;.  A more ancient and still more perplexing mystery is thatof the Three Hills of  Gold. Some sixty years ago a jiarty of  hunters led by a nian bearing the name of  "Peg-leg" Smith woro trapping on the  headwaters of the Colorado river. They  made their way down the Colorado to the  mouth of the Gila and then struck westward over the Colorado desert, hoping to  reach" Los Angeles. On the third night  after leaving the Gila, the hunters pitched  tlieir camji near three small hills. Accident or idle curosity induced one of the  hunters to mount the summit of one of  the hills. He found its top covered with  a mass of dark-colored, broken rock, pleu-  tifully s|irinkled with shining yellow particles' of varying size. The presence of  gold in that section had not then been  dreamed of, but because of its singular  appearance, several pieces of the rock  were carried away by the hunters. After  the discovery of gold in 1818, those specimens were examined by uii expert who  pronounced the yellow particles to be  pure gold. Smith at once-organized an  expedition and attempted to rediscover  the hill at the base of whicli he and hi.  companions had camped so many years  before. Before reaching the desert, however, the horses belonging to the prospectors were stolen by Indians and Smith  gave up'the quest in disgust.  A dozen years later the Hills of Gold  wore discovered by another white man,  only to bo lost again. A soldier stationed  at Fort Yuma was discharged in the  spring of 18(i0, his term of service having  expired. One day an Indian, with whom  he was on friendly terms, told the soldier  that he knew of a place in the desert  ���where plenty of gold was to be found, and  olfered to guide him to the spot. The soldier hastily collected a small outfit, and  with the Indian tis his only companion,  set out for the desert. They returned  within a fortnight, and the soldier soon  after left for Sn.ii I'Vancisco. In the latter  city ho fell in with a number of old millers', to whom he exhibited a nugget worth  several hundred dollars and a certificate  of deposit I'or $ 121',000, which he informed  his astonished auditors were the results  of his visit with his Indian friend to the  rich mine iu the desert. ThoCalifornians  instantly offered to lit out un expedition  ami to rbwni'd the soldier handsomely I'or  guiding them to the spot. Their offer  was accepted and the party soon set out,  but tho desert soon swallowed it, and  none of, its members were ever'again seen  alive. ���_ few years ago an old wagon, surrounded by the skeletons of several men  and horses, was found on the desert some  distance from Fort Yuma, and this i.s the  only clew to the fate of the party that has  ever been secured.  ���To still   another jirosjiector  have   the  Three Hills of Gold yielded uji tlieir secret.  In 1870a minor who had been working for  some years in Arizona, left Yuma for Los  Angeles.   He followed the old stage road  for a time but in the end resolved to lessen  his journey by taking a "shortcut." Soon  after leaving the road he found  himself  in the Bad Lands, a succession of steop  hills cut by deep canyons whicli  so confused him'that he finally lost hi.s Way.  After wandering aimlessly for a time he  reached a group of throe small  hills and-  rode to the top of one of them to get his  bearings.    While taking a brief rest before resuming his journey, he chanced to  glance at the rock  upon which he was  sitting, and to his great surprise speedily  discovered that the entire hill was a mass  of decomposed quart'/ mingled with nuggets of gold.    He emptied his saddle bags  of their contents and filled them with the  precious ore, after which he .struck out  for a. gap in  the mountains and after a  hard journey, which nearly jiroved fatal,  succeeded in reaching Los Angeles.   The  journey ended, he was stricken with fever  and lay for weeks tit the point of death.  When  finally   pronounced convalescent,  he called for his saddle bags and told the  story of'his surprising discovery in  the  desert.   The ore he brought with him was  found to be worth $7000 and the details of  his story made it clear that Smith's lost  mine had again been  found.   The doctor  who.attended upon the sick man induced  him to agree to guide a jjarty to the Three  Hills of Gold, and preparations were making for the trip when the minor was taken  with a rela|jse and died two days later.  The  doctor    has  repeatedly   fitted   out  parties to search the region in which the  hills are supposed to be, but the search  has thus far been in vain.  The Lost Vein of Colorado still eludes  the eager prospector. Behind it ranges  the incidents of one of the most touching  love stories ever written. In the early  'GOs Amos Albright wont to Colorado to  seek his fortune, leaving his wife and  children on an Illinois farm, flis health  began 'to fail soon after his arrival in Colorado, and to make matters worse came  distressing news from home, and to make  the journey to the gold lielcls he had borrowed money from a rich neighbor, in  former days au unsuccessful suitor for his  wife's hand, and'the wife wrote that their-  creditor now threatened to foreclose his  loau and drive her and her children from  their home. The news made Albright desperate; he sold a.portion of his scanty belongings, exchanged the money for.pro'-'  visions and set out alone for theinoun-.  tains. He was sick unto death, but des-i  peration nerved him on. He reached the  mountains, turned from the trail and be-'  ���'gun'"prospecting' on unbroken ground, but',  day after day disappointment alone attended his efforts. In a fortnight his provisions were gone and he now saw that  only sta'rvation;or retreat lay before him.  One weary day sundown found him sitting  on a heap of dirt at the base of a great  rock. He was fearfully hungry and weakness aud the cold winds of the mountains  bitterly oppressed him. Then came discovery such as is seldom heard of outside the  pages of'old romance. What was it that  he saw in the rock upon which he was  sitting? Silver! Not quartz,nor glance,  but virgin ore. The vein was as broad as  hi.s hand in the uiiddleand dwindled away  in wavering line a yard in length.  Albright sprang up .and sot to work  with feverish energy and the unimpaired  strength of a giant. It was a bright moonlight night, and he labored without pause  until sunrise. When morning came he  hud mined more ore than he could carry  away with him. He saw clearly that the  veiii"he had discovered was a true one, and  probably extended a great distance.  Within his grasp lay a fortune of millions.  He made a careful reckoning of his bearing, staked his claim, concealed all traces  of his labor, and collecting as much of the  ore as he could carry away with him, set  out for Denver, which city he reached late  that night. Next niorning he purchased  an outfit, an abundance of provisions and  a nude, and again set out for his claim.  Within a month he had mined enough  silver to load a train. Moreover, he had  traced the fissure to its origin in the hills,  and satisfied himself that he was the  owner of one of the richest claims iu Colorado. Then a hemorrhage struck him  down, and it was by a miracle that blind  and staggering he reached Denver alive.  As soon as he hud gained sufficient  strength ho sot out for his home in Illinois.  As yet, though eagerly importuned to thi  so, he had revealed to no one the locution  of his claim. He reached homo only to  lind that his wife and children had been  driven fi'oin their home by his creditors,  and to die in his wife's arms. The money  he had brought with him from Colorado  served to recover .the home I'roni which  his family had been driven, but the secret  of the "Lost Vein" died with him. So  one of the hundreds who have sinceat-  tempted the search have been able to find  it. Western mining history contains no  more pathetic history than that which  relates to Amos Albright and tho Lost  Vein.  0  I  The Mines of the  Great Slocan District  are all within  ���   a few   ���  miles of New Denver,  the celebrated  Mountain Chief being  less than  two miles distant.  The townsite is  acknowledged to be the  prettiest  in the whole  Kootenay Country.  Investors, and Speculators should  examine the property  offered.  Ill  To allow Prospectors, Miners, and  Mining9 Men to acquire ground on  which to build homes, lots will be sold  in Blocks 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 74, 78, 79,  and 83, in the townsite of NEW DENVER, until October 1st next, at the low  price of One Dollar a Front Foot ($25  a Lot).   Terms cash.   Title warranted.  _.i.m Junction, Utah, September I5th.  - l.noch Davis, the wife murderer, died  yesterday with rifle balls iu his breast.  At 10:10 ho was placed in a chair with  a plunk at the back. The peniten-  tiury doctor pinned a blank with a  black mark over the heart. Davis  was given liquor and strapped down.  Ife protested as he said he wanted  tlie sharpshooters out 'in plain sight instead of in the tent as they were, and he  said he did not want to die like a "d d  Indian." At IO:!.. the marshal cried,  "Make ready! take aim! lire!" and six  shots rang out and Davis moved slightly,  and 10: l"> gasped faintly. The doctor said  it was only a contraction of the muscles.  Death was practically instantaneous.  Knur bulls pierced the paper, two were  wide and one pierced this black mark.  Prospectors do Not Make the Money.  Dan De Quille, who has spent almost a  lifetime on the great Comstock lode at  Virginia City, Nevada, writes: "Prospectors are not the men who make money  out of mines. The men who make the  great fortunes are those who buy out the  jirosjiector after he has found and to some  extent developed a mine. Mackay, Fair,  Jones, Sharon and all other Nevada millionaires bought mines after they wore  discovered. To get a mine any other way  would require a man to spend months and  perhaps years as a-wanderer in the mountains, sleeping ujion the ground, feeding  upon beans, bacon and slapjacks, suffering from heat and thirst, enduring all  kinds of hardships and encountering all  manner of dangers. I.von then a paying  liiine might not be found. All these dangers, dojirivations, toils and desperate  chances fall to the lot of the |irospector,  and tit last he is alile to offer to the capitalist his "finished |jioduct" in the shape  of a discovered and partially developed  mine. Not a millionaire is to be found in  the grand army of jirospoctors, the scouts  and jiioneersoi' the great industry of mining. The pros|iector is nearly always a  poor man, or a man of limited means, lie  is not able to |iurcliase and erect the  machinery required I'or ex|>loring amine  at depth. About all he can do after he  has found his mine is to define and o|ien  ii|j hi.s lode at and near the surface. He  lacks money with whicli to erect any kind  of works for the reduction of the ore he  extracts, and unless he has a gold vein so  rich that he can |ioiind the metal out in u  hunt! mortar, lie gets nothing from his  mine on which to live. He is probably  far away from lines of travel and transportation, but he knows he has a good  mine and he holds on to it in the hope  that at no distant day a railroad will  come his way and he may be able to sell  his lind for a snug little |>ile, and so end  his days in ease and comfort. In all the  Pacific coast states and territoiies are to  be found men who have thus been holding on to mines for yours and years, until  they have grown wrinkled and grey in  holding on."   Fatal Accident at the Silver King.  The first fatal accident at the Silver  King mine occurred (his niorning at 7  o'clock. Peter Campbell, who had but  recently been employed at the mine, fell  into u shaft partly lllled with water and  wa.s drowned. .Mr. Campbell canie^ fo  Nelson last year from Inveriicss-shire,  Scotland, where lie was born in IS..").
