LONDON, November 4.���What is re-  rgarded as an important announcement  preparing the people of Great Britain  for new taxes and frpsh loans was mado  tonight by the chancellor of the exchequer, sir Michael Hicks-Beach, in a  speech at Bristol. After alluding to the  Northport People Will Retaliate.  NORTHPORT, Novcmbei 4.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Business in North-  port is generally very poor. Merchants  have reduced their stocks as much as  possible, hotels'have discharged part of  their help and those who were m a position to do so have sold ont and gone  elsewhere. This condition of affairs id  caused laigely by the' 'action ,of the  Northpoit Smelting & Refining Company m building a town of its own on  land purchased b> them adjoining the  smelter. A store, hotel, boarding houses,  bunk-houses and cottages have boon  built and e<cuupied The company claim  they do not compel the mon to patron-  i7e theso business places, but it ,is an  open ���eperet that it they do not do _o  they* will lose their positions as soon  es tho company can convenientlyidispense with tlieir sei vices;. The management claim that it was driven to  build this new town by tbo action of tho  city authonties, who they, ray refused  protection to lhe' non-union men  bi ought m to ������ take the 'place of the  striking srnelteimen last sun.mei. On  the other side it-is pretty generally  claimed thatvthe eomranv had all plaus  laid for a new town, before the labor  tioublcs carro up, at all.'.There is very  good evidence that all of the new fea-  tuics had been decided on two months  oefore the strike and lockout and that  the lockout was merely an excuse for  the building of.the town.   ,  % - i  A rum bor of Noithport' busines.  people propose > to fight 1hc smelter  company in the couits if these boarding houros, stoies etc, aro continued  by them and the lcf,al battle will probably b��gii' as soon as the i ew management trkes charge, providing that, they  evince a. disposition of building' and  operating the smelter - town. Among  the points which the city expect to  make against the company' arc the following, any one of which it is said will  bring more expense and trouble to" the  'company than they can derive profit  fiom  their town and store.   -  First.���The company granulates its  slag amounting to several hundred tons  per day and' washes it down the river,  whore it is carried away by river currents. It is claimed that this practice  is in violation ot the law and that the  company can be compelled to desist  .and dispose of its slag in" some other  .way_and  at  a  much, greater  expense.  "Second.���The company roartp its ores  in an open yard covering about ten  acres. The .sulphur and several poisonous gases from tbe ore aie freed and  carried intc the air, rendering the atmosphere impure and unhealthful and  destroying vegetation for miles around.  In many parts of the country smoltors  have been compelled to build expensive  flues to carry Iheir smoke long distances snd in one instance to build a  smoke-consuming plant and it is said  the Northport Smelting- & Refining  Company can be made do the same horn,  Third.--It is claimed lhat the North-  port Smelting & Refining Company Is"  really an alien corporation and not on-  titled to hold real estate in* the United  States and that an action could he  brought against them on that ground  Fointh.--It is asserted that they arc  paying taxes on a very rmall percentage of the 51.000.000* their pjant Is  really v/cith and that their taxation  can be increased by assessing their  plant at its real value.  Fifth.���That lhe legislature can p:is3  an  eight-hour  law  which  will  greatly  ^increase their expense for wages.  Sixth.���That thev can also bo prohibited by law from owning and operating a company store or buMness of  any kind at which its t-mployees are  compelled to trade. '  There is also indisputable authority  for tha -ritj.tei..ent that director R. T.  Freeh, ville and Henrv Bratnober havo  expressed unqualified disapproval of  the store and town enterprise, whieh  they ndiibute solely to Mr. Kadish and  that they -have given positive assurance  that theso new features will be discontinued soon after Mv- Jfadish's successor takes charge. v  electric power will mean a Vubs'tantlal  saving ir the operation e>f the smelter.  The motcrs required for the operation  of the smelter are- One 100 hoisepower  motors for the operation of two blow-  eis; one CO for the rock breaker; ono  50 for tho sampling mill; one 50 for the  mecl-arical roaster; and ono v15 hoi so  power motor for the new hoist which  the company intends installing. The  local smelter will also ihave the second  electric plant .ever Installed for tho  running of its assay office. This plant  ���will fro comprised'of the "following apparatus: 3 1200-wats emersion coils  for tho heating of water in tubes; 4 12  by 13 enameled plates for evaporating  solutions and for ,dryeis; 2 12 by IS  enameled plates for bringing solutions  up to and maintaining a gentle boll;  and 8 12 by 12 enameled plates for drying boths.

FOR A BY-LAW AUTHORIZING THB  EXPENDITURE OF $125,000 FOR  '     ' A LIGHTING fcLANT.  ST  The city lighting problem was the  chief topic at the meeting of the *city  council last evening. The������ question was  given another phase by tho reading' of  a length> r��"tition from James A. Gilker  and others, representing "the owners of  more than one-tenth in value of the'real  pioperty o-f-the^ciiy, who petitioned'tbe  council lo< submit .to a vote of the.rate-  payors a "byla\vf authorizing the expenditure of ?150,000 to be used in the erection  of a,power  plant  on Kootenay  riverJL ��������*toTetThe change go'anTVrwas  There <was evidently no desire on the  part of the council to ignore the petition,'  which was in every respect a representative one and the discussion soon, drifted  "tb the erection of a* power srtatibn on the  river. >".Even the oft lepeatoa objection  that the city could not borrow the money  necessary for'such a purpose'was tor{  gotten,' and even the price set* as the  outside amount necessary appeared to  commend itself- to the majority of the  members of the'council.   J V   '"  Alderman Irving waa tne first to refer  to tho petition direct. He said ho agreed  with the ,prayer- of tlie petition' and  thought lhat the sooner iho city started"  upon the^vork^of installing its own plant  the better,it would <be for the city. As to  .the-*1 cost"*"Of the "work mayor * Fletcher  said he was of the t opinion that the city  engineer had made'an estimate,of .the  cosCof the work at $125,000, and the city  rengmcei replied that this vas, correct. ')_  --' Alderman Selous said there were soma*  preliminaries .which should not be lost  sight of.,,.The first requisite vias the se?-  curing of,the site. ^,This was,nec-^ssajy  in order to base any o&umato as to the  cost. He suggested that the council it*j  once ronew,fits*Jeltorts to secure the site  at present in,dispute In this connection  the mayor said he had been moving hnn--  self in the matter of the site and he had  hoped 'to, be' in a position** to give th9  coimcil some lnformation-asito the position of a/fairs, but the infoimation he  was looking for had hot arrived. Alderman Irving asked the city engineer wnat  site he had based his-estimate of cost  upon and received a reply to the effecv  that it was the site at nresent in dispute.  Mayer'Fletcher asked the members of  the council how they felt upon the point  of authorizing further .work upon the  site m the way of securing confirmation  ot the estimate of cost. He said he was  of the opinion that the city would get  the site. He also was of the opinion  that if it was decided to go ahead with  the woik of installing the plant, there  was much of it that would have to J3  dene at the low stage of water To this  eity engineer McCulloch replied that the  bulk of the work could be performed at  any time.  On motion of aldeiman Sejous, seconded by alderman Gillett, it was decided to receue  the  petition  ar.d   the.  of ?48 per annum per horse power worked out about the same as the 45 per cent  basis for power. In any event he was  of the opinion that the city would require 200 horse power, so that the prico  per month would be reduced to ?3.75.  With an efficient service he was convinced that the city light business would  be run up to 6000 lights, Since tho city's  alternating system had been supplied oy  his company the average horse power  had been 117, with a slight advance on  Saturday evenings. This horse power  was supplying 1&00 lights, so that it waa  an easy matter for the council -to figure  out how the $48'and. the 45! per-cent  rates woiked out. The trouble with tho  city's plant was that jthe ,machines 'in  the power house were not efficient. The  efficiency of the-Edison'machines was  but 84 per cont and that'of tho West-  inghouse machine but'70 per cent. Mr.  Campbell also gave the ;council* his'  opinion as to the cost t of Installing a  power plant on Kootenay, river to compete with his own company. .His figure^  was $350 rer horse power for a 1030  horse power plant. . -%  Alderman/ Selous remarked/to Mr-  Campbell that in his opinion-it w,ould  not cost the company anything toiinake  fhe concession asked for''by alderman  Gillett, as the city" would require about  200 in a few weeks after the arrangement wont Into effect IJo &Jso thought  the" change would make the by-law more,  popular   at' the  polls.

in the neighborhood of four cents.-Today silver is quoted at 58 cents and lo..d'
is worth about 3%. cents. It is trup, it
costs less to market .and smelt the product now than ih "the early days, but it
is doubtful if the general expenses of
.,.    minin":  are  much   less.   In   the  early
' jff\   stages   of   development   of   alj * these
.mines, the ore was fairly clean, and the
percentage ^that   could   be   shipped  in
that  state w;ib  large.  As depth,  however, is gained, the ore bodies become
larger,  but the   grade -is  lower,     and
little of it can be sHipped without concentration or' hand sorting. As in the
early days, mines that, are sow 'in the
first  stiges 'of development, are making money by shipping clear ore;  but
those that  are in the -more' advanced
stages  Have  to  figure  pretty  close to
play, expenses  and "Regular' dividends.
Thesp mines must have a market that
can-be depended 'on in**order to worlc
contiruously, and markets that aro created by acts of parliament tre almost
ns'uncertain as those controlled by the
Trusts. The province 'of British "Columbia owes much to the silver-lead mines
of Kootenay, much more than it owes
to any other-one industry,'and the province, now that the Industry needs assistance, caii assist it"'without taking any
chances of making-a-losing.'The s'ilver-
lead., mines  of-.Kootenay'are v between
the devil and Ihe-dep'sea^Withoiit a refinery" they are dependent on Jhe American 'Smeitei- Trust/Jf they bind themselves M:o a ^refinery "to  bo 'erected In
Canada   by  private '^capital,, ihey  will'
constantly be; in, danger; of-shut-downs
without   notice; or "combinations-\hat
will ^practically . eliminate  competition.
iWithViuier a shut-down or a combination, 'they would again be at the mercy
of  the 'American 'Smelter   Trust.   The
province is big enousrh and rich enough
and  inderendont   enough   to   purchase
■thevgold"dust of the-'northern miners!
Is-it big enough Zand lich enough 'and
independent   enough   to   purchase   the
silver-lead.ore and  silver-lead  bullion
of Kootenay's mines and smelters? The'
Tribuno  believes  It, is.  Were one-half
the departmental .energy that is wasted
devising railway policiesi used in' developing a policy that-would make'busl-

the    province    of, 'British    Columbia

in   many   cases   became  well-to-do   on
selling them to the meu who developed

them  could  Le  classed  as  capitalists;

both of whom reside at Ferguson—a map
which, by the way, is an excellent one
ana one that should be in the possession
■of every porson who is seeking investments  in  that  district—every  mineral
claim in all lhe section of country known
as tho Lardo-Duncan country is situated
on streams that flow into 3-Cootenay lake.
There are hundreds of mineral "claims
on   Silver   Tip,   McDonald, "Porcupine,
Cariboo, and Hall crooks, all of which
aie   tributaries   of Duncan   river   and
which flow into it from tho west. Duncan
rh er has Its outlet in Kootenay lake at
a point about fourteen miles north of
Kaslo.   Over the divide in which these
creeks rise are Gainer, Haskins, Triune,
Brown, Ottawa, Eight-mile, Seven-mile,
North Fork, Hallaway,   Trout,   Glacier,'
Five-mile. Rock, Abrahamson, Canyon,
Tenderfoot,  Rapid,   Poplar,  Hope,  and
Lake creeks, all of wliich flow either into
Trout lake or Trout lake's outlet, the
Lardo   river, which   empties   into   the
Duncan river at a point three miles from
Kootenay   lake.     The   tnifflc from all
these claims must he down hill, and by
following  the  trails   down  nill,   every
trail ends at the head of Kootenay lake
There is no more commurity of interest
between Trout Lake mining uivislon and
Lardeau mining dnislon thaii there is
between   Trout  Lake   mining   division
and Ainsworth mining division, or as
much.   All the mineral claims in Lardeau mining division are on creeks that
flow into the Northwest Arm of UDDer
Arrow lake, and in order to reach any

For duri'i;.' th3  threo months he has oniy been aUnved  tlueo leiteis a week, and the allowa-nce  has been monopolized by Icily Riis&'oll  herself in the days between the litre-"J  weekly visits which she was allowed to'1  mnko.  There were letters and telegrams ol  ���congratulation-on-his release-both-from-  tha continent and this country, epistles  of sympathy from various offenders who  had at one time or another experienced  the hospitality of the governor of Holloway, and who evidently hoped xhat a  "fellow-feelfng"' would make his lordship  "wondrous kind."  A clergyman in tbo north of England  wroto a vigorous letter of sympathy and  protest against the outrageous sentenc?  passed by tho houso of lords; and there  were anonymous screeds of abuse, too  malignant to he anything but funny.  "What about your food?"  "Oh, I ordered it myself. Thero is a  placo called "The Cottage" near by.  where a contractor lives who is allowed  to send in food to those prisoners who  can order their own���the first-class nii.-  ���demoanants and the remand prisoners.''  "Had vou many visitors?"  "No, verv few. I really did not mind  that. For visitors unsettle mo and make  the time seem long. It goes all the mor2  quickly through the monotony when one  is undisturbed."  "What do you intend to do now?"  "To rest for a few days, and thon resume mv ordinary avocations. L suppose," added his lordship laughing, "the  public will think that n.cans going  about committing bigamy."  "Will vou marry again in this country?"  "As I said to the houso of loids, I  am only waiting for my release bv the  divorce court to make my man iage lcgd.1.  I look on a second marriage in this country as purely legal formality, like the  signing of a deed But of course, if it is  ���necessary I must do it. The divorce and.  marriage in Nevada were and are abr  solutely valid, and cannot'bo upset notwithstanding, what was said at the trial.  I ought never to have been prosecuted at  all, and they did -not allow me time to  get my evidence." . .  Asked about t.he report that he had  gained three stones in prison, lord Russell gave a comical look of horror a.  the possibility of appearing fat. Upon  being assured that he did not show it  '��� lie said: ���''... .,    ������      _ ,.',  "I was afraid I was showing it. I did  gain three stones, because the only exercise I got was tw:o hours walking  and none at all when it rained. But  lately I have been dieting, and. now J  am only half a stone heavier than be-  ��� jej-e." ��� -  "What do you think of the sentence?"  "They tell me*it was to.have been six  "������'���-'       "-" ---  "in the house  of lords. But thi-^e months seems to be  the standard sentence for everything just  now. .VVe had one man in Holloway for  three months for a serious offense und^r  Stead's Act.and another who had been  charged -with murder and convicted of  manslaughter. So whetner it is a techni.  cal mistake' or a .serious crime, three"  mouths'seems to bo the fashion."  "How do ynu like liberty'.'"  "I can hardly realize it yet. As *I sit  ,here and talk I cannot help feeling as  if it is still prison, and the. warder will  come in at the door in a minute to stop  us. Things are much stricter now. Ten  years ago visitors were allowed in the  same room with a first-class misdemeanant. But I was only allowed to bo visited three times a week, in a room divided into two by crossed'wires, so^flne  that a lead pencil could have been pushed through.  "The prisoner is locked in on one side,  and the visitor on the other, and a warder walks hack and forward outside looking in at a glass door. The room being  quite bare of furniture, all conversation,  echoes and reverberates most horridly,  so that it is difficult to talk.' It is?im-  p.ossiblo to keep on looking through the  wli cs. It made my eyes so bad that in  a QhOrt time Fcould not see."  "Yes " added lady Russell, "and when,  I ��*ot home, if I went to my birds,'the  very   sight   ot   their   cages   mads' me  *siiiv��r "  "Happily",   s^d   his   lordship,   "the  -lwyms-offic'e-allowcd the-griIl_to_be abol__  .shod for one of my three v'eekly viBlts-  hut l hough* this was done on account of  the injury to ray sight, they insisted on  the wire grill being kept up tho other  two days."       -  .  Causp of the Delay.  NEW YORK, November 4.���The hitch  in the negotiations for Miss Stone's release arises from two causes: First, the  fierce antagonism between United States  diplomatic agent Dickinson and Russisn  minister Bakherateff; second, tha missionary and diplomatic disinclinations to  accede to the brigands' terms, though  moderated, says the Samakov correspondent of tho Journal and Advertiser. Tho  relations between M. Bakheteff and Mr.  nickinson are strained to the breaking  point. The former, being friendly to  Bulgaria, does not want his agont to finish tho final transaction on Bulgarian  soil. Mr. Berth, a Macedonian student  at the American Institute al Samakov,  ono of the agents sent to negotiate with  the brigands, has returned to Raalog.  lie reports that- the brigands consider  Mr. Dickinson's money offer too (.mall.  They say they do not want to agree to  terms -that would disgi.acc them with  their brethren. Discussing the amount  of ransom, mis&ionaiy Baird, of Samakov institute says- "It the brlgand3  get a quarter of what thoy still ask  banas will spiing up like mushrooms.  Samakov itself will furnish malny and  Bulgaria will be ruined. The brigands  begun negotiations with us by asking  twice Miss Stone's weight in gold. Even  a fourth of this sum is preposterous; If  tho Bulgarians ��� had oather: trackers-' or  bloodhounds, Miss Stone, would not now  be spending her sixty-first day with the  brigands."   ���*. :*".*.* J . * :'*-'* *.' * '*** "i  War OiSce Intentions.  ' NEW YORK, November 4. ���Commenting upon the South African military situation, the London correspondent of the Tribune today eays: It is  understood to be the intention of the  war office to send 5000 more mounted  men out to South Africa during the  next six weeks. There are only 7000  mounted men at home, so that the military authorities are faced with ;the  problem of.;training soldiers minus tha  necessary, accompaniment of a,cavalry  arm-   To meet this, if ottier means fail,  it is proposed that .several composite  regiments of yeomanry will be voluntarily^ embodied'efor-home service. A  move will soon be made to bring home  from South Africa men who^have served,  over two years m the' war and their  places may he. taken by the.British cavalry'division of seven regiments,now in  .India. -���After-'the-conclusion of hostilities" it is expected that 'the permanent  garrison at the Cape^will consist of 50!-  000 men. -    /, .   ���   ���     >,      .

'NEW YORK, November 4.���At ths  service clubs it is rumored that lord  Robeits is anxious to retire. He has  never intended to remain the full period in the war office and he is credited  with a desire to pass the winter of his  days in quiet retirement in India.

In lhe real estate suit of Gamble vs.  Stocks, an application of the defendant  for discovery wab refused by judge  Forin yesterday.  In the case of the' bank of Montreal  vs tho Noonday-Curley Mining Company, an application was made yesterday before judge Forin for a salo of  lands under the judgment act lo satisfy  a judgment for ?$fif>0. The order will  not be enforced until Monday.  Work was resumed on the postoffice  building yesterday after a shut-down  of several days on account of the bad  weather. It is likely that work upon  the building will be continued all winter in an iiilermittent way, tho men going to work as often as the weather will  Dermit.  Messrs. Charles A. Waterman &  Company have received word from Mrs.  H. A. Langford to sell lhe whole  of her household furniture and effects,  as well as a number ot paintings and  artist's materials. The sale will take  place on tho promises on Victoria  streot, near Kootenay, on Wednesday  afternoon at 2 o'clock.  In the case of Morgues vs the Chapleau Mining Company -argument was  heard by judge Forin yesterday upon  a motion for .judgment for three  months', srlary by reason of breach of  contract.' The argument was adjourned  until Thursday for further argument  vpon tho facts disclosed. The amount  involved is close upon ?1500.  The trpirway for the London Consolidated Company will be completed,by  Christmas. That this company has f.  .good thinj, in the Silver Hill and Richelieu may be gathered from* the fact that  a careful sampling of the ore indicates  that the run ot the mine wih gc 820 to  the ton arid against this tnere is a  cost of, $11 for mining and treatment.  The men who have hart the contract  for the driving ot a 100 foot tunnel on  the Juno have completed their work  and came down the hill testerday. It is  thought tho crosscut will have to be  driven another '300 feet before it wlil  tap the ledge for -which it is being  driven. A new, contract will be let within the iiext few days* for the completion  of the crosscut.

In the-case "of Smith vs. the Stewart  Brothers and t the Noonday-Curley Mining Company/'afsuit to,enforce a* mechanic's lien for, wages, lhe argument  upon a motion,for judgment was heard  yesterday before judge Forin and judgment reserved. The case against (the  Stewarts' was , dismished last - week at  a special sitting'aud the only point in  the case' at, present is whether the  Noonday-Curley company is entitled to  a'non-sult upon the evidence submitted  by the plaintifl. at the trial of the case.  rosits was very -much decompesed, indicating the presence of considerable  iron, and tho other was a quartzite too  hard to permit of its being used in tho  building.

While it is still low  the prico has been more steady of late,  a condition which has been very;welcome to the local smelters. It is how  thought that the smelters have come  to the end of their difficulties iri buying  ores upon' a 'ffilling market and a  change for. the better is expected., Iu  ores running high in silver the losses  Incurred by, the smelters in the fallim?  market ard much heavier than a casual reader would imagine.           will be iii attendance.

The recent difficulty, with the Nelson Saw &  Planing,Mills over the apron which tha  mill' has laid' upon the wharf to connect it with its property has led to the  discovery that the city's title is not as  clear as it vmight be, the city, according  to the Gazette, having jurisdiction over  but 75 feet'of. the continuation of Hall  street between high and low water. An  effort will be "made to have the oitys  jurisdiction extended over this width  to. the end of the wharf. At iho same  time the' effort to secure title to the  foreshore in front of the c'ly will be  again taken up.

Spearing, E. Todd and Neil McLennan,  an application was made yesterday before' judge Forn to have the case as  against Spearing dismissed for lack of/  prosecution. The application was laid  over to come up upon notice. So far as  Spearing is' concerned the case is one  for a declaration to have the plaintiff  declared the owner of a eixth Interest  in the Penobscot, Mount Verde and  Chilliwack Belle mineral claims in the  Simllkcmcen mining district, in which  Spearing is the recorded owner of "a  third it terest. *  Government ngent Turner has received  instructions from the acting minister  of mines to transfer the recorder's office  of Goat River mining division from Kuskonook to Cieston. The orfice at Kuskonook will be closed on Saturday, November 16th, and the ofllce at Creston  opened on Monday, November 18th. At  Creston the recorder's olflee will occupy  a building erected for the purpose of the  government. The member for the Nelson riding has recommended that Samuel  B. Wright, a merchant at Kuskonook, he  given authority to issue miners' lie-,  enses and take affidavits under the Mineral Act, so that prospectors and others  whose claims are on Kootenay Lake will  not be put to any groat inconvenience  through the removal of the recording  office.  The contractors* for tho Nelson post-  office are meeting with some trouble  in getting out marble from the Mansfield marble quarry. It appears that they  have now got into a solid formation,  and althcugh holes have been drilled  for a distance of eighteen feet there  does not aprear to be any seam in the  atone. This makes the working of the  yuarry very expensive. JrVith a view to  seeing whether some other stone could  not be substituted ai-onitect McDonald  recently made a trip to the marble  deposits at Salmo and in the Crawforil  Bay district. The Salmo marble is said  to be superior to the Mansfield marble  in that it is much easier worked,, but  thero.ere transportation difficulties in  the way so, that it would not be avail*  able until sleighing came. Two objections were met with in respect to the  Crawford Bay artfcJg.

Jeffrey,-who is interested In  the smelter project to which the people of Ksslo have pinned their hopes,  was in Nelson yesterday. He says the  money for the erection of the smelter  Is ready, but that everything now depends upon securing satisfactory rates  from tho railways for the removing of  the bullion to the refineries In the east.  Another requisite to the successful operation of a smelter is an assured supply of ores. This, in the opinion of Mr.  Jeffrey, can be best secured by the investment by the smelter company in  tho producing mines of lhe dlfctrict and  he says efforts in thiB direction aro  row beng made. The location of the refinery, according to Mr. Jeffrey, has  not been Anally decided. It may go up  at Kaslo, oi it may go up at Five-mile  point, or it may go up at Kuskonook.  As a starter the smelter Is to hive a  capacity of 100 tons per days.  MINING IN SLOGAN DISTRICT  Many Men Now Employed.  J. C. Ryan, of the So Ho group of  claims was in Nelson yesterday. He  says there are more men at work at  present in the Slocan than there have  been for many months past' and the  feeling throughout the camp is much  better than it waa The only discouraging feature for the outlook in the low  price of silver and lead. The mines are  shipping freely just at present, but it  is a question as to whether they will  feel justified in keeping their shipments  up unless the. market for lead and silver improves. There are several of the  shippers that are very close to the. line,  there being a very small margin over  working expenses, especially in the  cases where penalties are imposed for  excess of zinc. The oreI tonna&e from  the mines is making good business for  ments   now   aggregating   about   seven  cars per day.  ��� Ot the properties in the camp the  Last Chance continues to excite no small  degree of interest in view of the long  .tunnel which is being driven to tap the  vein at great depth. This tunnel is now  considerably overdue, but the company  is confluent of coming across the ledge  with a little more work. As this tunnel, is designed to strike the vein at a  depth of^1000 feet from its apex it is  not discouraging' that the estimate of  the engineers should be 100 or even 200'  feet out. /    ' *" ,  Although the Noble Five company is  in financial'difficulties it Ms said the  property "never- lokcd better. Recent  work^ has disclosed the' fact that the  Noble Five company nas -several hundred feet of the Surprise1 ledge, fro?__  which1'seven cars "of high grade ore  were taken "this summer from an outcrop. 'The ledge has been stripped on the  'NrUe Five; for something-like SOO feet  and there are several openings in which  .there is good'ore showing. On the Surprise litself a_ long tunnel" has been  started to set under - the sensational'  outcrop vhich made such a stir in the  Slocan during the summer. The ledge?  upon which thi3 outcrop occurred is-a.  parallel cne' to that upon which 'the  previous- work on the Surprise had been  done and a' crosscut from the old tothe new ledge has been started. .  Work upon the WashingtoL. is being-  prosecuted with good 'results, and since  resuming some sixty' tons'of ore have-  been shipped to the Nelson smelter.  The Washington vein has been traced-  on the surface from the old workings  down the hill in the direction of what  is known as the No. 3 tunnel. This  treeing has fhown the vein to be W  feet to the east of-the point, at which  the tunnel was started. Tho ownc-s  now have a very fine showing cf oi e ar.d  if the market warrants shipments e-_R  continue all winter. /' . i -  On the So Ho group, in which ha is  interested, Mr. Ryan says work is going ahead on a crosscut which is being run to get in 200 feet below th?  present wcrkings. There are some sixteen claims in this group, which extends from a point EOO feet from the  No. 8 tunnel on the Payne mine to the  Antoine mine, and tho group ir sur-  poted to catch a considerable rlec. of  the Rambler vein. The workings on  the propei ty there aro several goo-i  Ghowir.gs.-The-work-done-upon-u_e pro***-  perty consists of a No. 2 tnuuel, which  has been driven in for 800 feet. Tho  flrst 250 or 300 feet of this is a crosscut,  but the rest of it is driven along the  vein. No. 3 tunnel has been driven in  froir the south side of the hill and is  connected wilh No. 2 by a 120 foot  ���vin7e. The crosscut which is 7iow in  hand will strike the vein 200 feet, below  this level and will be the chief working  le.el for the property.  The Rambler is now conceded to be  the big proporty of tho Slocan. It is  shipping- eteadily aud has a large crew  of men at work. 'An idea of tho showing  in tJ_o property may be gathered from  the conparlson that in Its palmiest  days the showing in the Payne mine  was not equal to tho showing in the  Rambler.^ It is. likely that work will  be returned on the Silver Belle property  this winter. .This property io in the  Best basin and has been idle for some  timo past Work is also going ahead  steadily on the Dardanelles, upon which  a crew of nine or ten men at work.  On the Payne good progress is bein;;  made with the electric drills in the No.  8 tunnel. .This tunnel wap run in for a  considerable distance when difficulty  was ei countered with bad air. This difficulty Is now being overcome with the  use of electric fans.  What is probably regarded as the  most een.ational development for recent rror.ths is that which ha3 characterized the opening up of the Sunset in  Jackson batin, a property chiefly  owned by George Hughes. The property, it is said, was purchased for $10,-  000, and since has returned its owners  in ore leceipts tho sum of $(50,000 in  round figures  AUCTION SALE  HOUSEHOLD  FURNITURE  55i ARTISTS'  MATERIALS  Acting under instructions from Mrs.  H.
