The following estimate of the expenditure in Ymir mines have been
prepared to support the wagon r«»ad
petition which has been forwarded to
the government. Trie) were prepared by Mr. Dean, of Smith, Dean &
Co.. to whose courtesy we'are indebted for their publication.
The following represents the total
actual expenditure in this vicinity by
mining companies and private mine or
claim owners, ft covers the area embraced by Porcupine, Bear, Quartz,
Wild Horse and Barrett creeks. On
the properties situated on these creeks
there have been done
5,375 feet of •tunneling at $15
per foot:.   . $80,650
1,354 feet sinking at $20 per
foot   .' ....     27,080
Private expenditures on roads,
trails, buildings and machinery,      ..     25,000
Assessment work, other than
above     30,000
Total $102,705
This  large  total  represents money
actually expended by private individuals and companies in the development of the Ymir district. So far the
government have contributed nothing
towards the development of the district, and not an inch of trail or road
is paid for by government funds.
The work Is distributed as under :
Tunnels,   Shafts'   Men.  Mines.
Wild Horse ok.      3,815 575        104 13
Barrett ok. 995 88 33 5
Porcupine ok. 340 334        39 10
Bear ok. 175 279 18 2
Quartz ok.        -50 78        H 2
5,375       1,354      204 33
Wild Horse creek, it will be seen, is
far ahead of the others, a fact principally due to the situation up-m it of
some of the most developed mines of
the district, such as the Ymir, Wren,
Blackcock and Wilcox. The Porto,
Rico mine represents nearly all the development work done on Barrett
creek. Both of these creeks, however,
have already had wagon roads put in
by private ejrterprico, and the next on
the list is the Porcupine creek. It
will be seen  that the  Porcnpme ranks
next to Wild Horse in respect of developed properties, and these properties all seem to be far above the average in newness. The highest assays
obtained anywhere in the Nelson district have come from Porcupine creek
properties, and the ore bodies there
bid fair to out rival anything yet discovered in British Columbia.
The total number of men employed
in the mines is seen to be 204. which
is equivalant to a pay-roll of $21,420
peu month, taking the miners wage3
at $3.50 per day. This, however, does
not include men doing assessment
work on their as yet undeveloped
claims*
That tnese figures afford ample jus-
tificdtion for considerable government
expenditure, is very evident. The estimates have been laid before the Commissioner of Lauds and Works, together with a map showing the number and position of the principal
mines. We have but little doubt that
these documents will have their desired effect and that the spring will see
the commencement of construction.
ANOTHER  SNOWSLIDE
The men working on the New Brun-
swick claim on Wild Horse Creek, were
nearly the victims of another snowslide
on Saturday last. Happily no very
serious results ensued, although the
men were for some time in imminent
danger of being suffocated. As it was
they escaped with a few bruises.
It appeals that two men, Henderson
and Harrison were working, in the tun
nel, when a snowslide came down and
blocked up the entrance as far as the
second set of timbers. The men being
supplied with spades easily dug a way
out, and ma le their way down to their
cabin, where they were joined by the
third man, Pollack. They had not been
in the cabin more than live minutes,
when another snowslide, much larger
than the last, started and completely
carried away the cabin, men and all
being carried down the hill. Mr. Hen-
derson was happily able to extricate
himself fiom the snow without much
difficulty, and at once set to work to
di<r out the others.    Harrison who was 2

THE YMIR MINER.
A   STARTLING  RUMOR.
A rumour is reported in Nelson,
which if true, will have an incalculable
effect upon the future of this town, and
of the other towns near us. It is said
that the C* P. R. have altered their plans
as regards the route of the Crow1* Nest
Pass Line, and are now thinking of
bringing it up Summit Creek from the
Kootenay Lake, and then down Sheep
creek to the Salmon river. It is said
that this route is quite as practicable
as the other route along the shores of
the Kootenay Lake.
If, as we surmise, it is the intention
of the C. P. R. to endeavour to buy out
Mr.Corbin, then it is of course highly
probable that the line passing here
will be utilized. It is hardly likely indeed if the rumour above mentioned is
true that a line would be built round
in the direction stated, if the present
line passing here could be secured, as
the effect would only dp to cause a loop.
It is therefore just within the bounds
of possibility that tne Crow's Nest Pass
Road may come through on the line of
the Nelson and Fort Sheppard Ry. from
Salnio to Nelson. It is perhaps too
early to speculate much on the advantages or disadvantages to be derived
from such an event, as up till now,
we have only the merest rumour to go
upon.

A Landslide on the Railway.
The train from Northport last Satur-
was delayed for several hours by a bad
landslide about two and a half miles
above Sayward.
A large mass of frozen earth had
been loosened by the thaw, and fell
down from the embankment covering
about 40 yards of the track. Amongst
it was about 30 tons of slab rock which
had to be blasted before it could be removed. Fortunately a large squad of
men were on board the train, and these
got to work without delay, otherwise
the train could not have reached Nelson
until the following day. *
The same, embankment hasgivfn trouble before, and at the piestnt there is
another large portion of earth almost
detached, which will almost be sure to
come down with the next thaw,

There is a geod ledge on this property

of which $10,000 is paid down. About
$6,000 has already been spent in developing the property and Mr. Corbould's
company intend to open in a systematic manner. J. E. Wise who was here
a good while during the summer is
one of the sellers.
The dance in the Stanley hall last
Friday night was fairly well attended
and the festive danoers all had a good
time. A first-class supper was supplied by the Palace hotel, to which
about thirty couples sat down. The
fare was such that the dancing continued till a very late hour. Shorty
Higgins certainly seems to be a capital
organizer and when he takes in hand a
dance it generally  turns out a success.
We have had two alarms of fire lately, both in the north end of the town.
In each case however they were quickly
got under before any considerable damage had been done.    It is curious that
tne first fire owed its extinction to the
heroic effort of the Presbyterian minister, while the Methodist minister was
one of the foremost in extinguishing
the stc n I.

-nsnErw—
We are constantly   receiving  letters
from distant parts, enquiring as to   the
sort of town Ymir is and as to  its im
mediate prospects.   We cannot answer
all these enquiries by  separate  letters
and we therefore print   below a few of
the leading features connected with this
town and district, which  may serve  to
give some idea of   the  place  to those
far distant
Ymir is situated on the   line  of the
Nelson and Fort Sheppard Railroad1  at
a point nineteen miles south of Nelson*
The railway line runs through the valley of the Salmon River, and Ymir lies
on both sides of the   river,   from   Bear
Creak to Wild Horse Creek.     Quartz
Creek flows through the centre  of the
older portion of the town.     All  these
three creeks are well  known  as  running thruogh valleys extremely rich in
mineral deposits.    The town itself pre-
esnts a long front to the railway  and
river, and  stretches   a long   distance
between the two main residential   portions.    The older and  more  southerly
portion was mainly built in the winter
of 1896, while the newer or north portion was built subsequent to the survey
of the townsite in the spring   of  1897.
In December 1897, about 170 meu were
employed in the mines with a  pay-rol
of about$17500.
Ymir has telegraphic communication
and two passenger trains daily, the
morning train connecting with Ross-
land and Spokane, and the afternoon
train with Nelson and C' P. R. points.
One freight train runs through per day
alternately passing south from Nelson,
and noith from Northport.
At the present moment there are
eight hotels and five general ston s running, while many other businesses  are
represented.    The Presbyterian denom- J' H> VANSTONE,
