SAM  WASHINGTON'S   VINDICATION.
He stood before tlie church committee
n calm, complacent bravery,
Though charged with many heinous Crimea
And various kinds of knavery.
" Now, Sambo Washington," they said,
" You're ohargod with great obliquities
With sundry crimes at various times
Ami many grave iniquities,"
" Yes, sar," snid Sambo Washington,
" Isc done some frauds pordigioUft,
But, brew de Lawd! for ebory fraud
Was pious and religious,"
" Ise done kcrinittcd vnr'ous Crimea
An'sins er great variety,
ltut obory fin thai 1 hat dono
I dono for troof an* piety."
"But how about John (Jray's gold pen!
Also hi*gold penholder?"
Then SombO grew the rIk of two
And amtworod tank and bolder:
" A pious foolill' luk rue, .ledge,
An' I could not control it.
Wirdul pen, .ledge, 1 fjtgtiod de pledge,
An'dat was why I stole it,"
"But Enoch Hardy s watch and chalnl"
" I Hlolc um, Jndge fum Hardy,

To Bliuday-Boliool an' tardy.
But, bresa do Lawd, dat ar gol' watch

In His great sanctuary.
I roach in time de house ob pra'r,
No mo' is 1 belated,
An'.bress my soul, dat watch I stole
To troof iuu consecrated.
"But how about that suit of clothes f"
" Dat wot," said Sambo, rising,
" I stole dat soot to serve de Lawd
An' wear at my bnptizin'."
" But how about those two fnt fowls f"
"I Ink dem fowls, yo'Honah,

PnoUAIlLK   ERECTION  OP   BMBLTEB8.
It is authoritatively slated Hint
smelters are shortly to lie luiilt both at
Spokane und Northport. Mr. Breen,
of Unite, bus contracted with the proprietors of the Le Roi, that the latter
shall deliver 37,000 tons of ore at their
bins to he trailed by him, Mr.
Breen undertaking to treat the ore for
$11 per tun, a saving to the mine owners of $.1,50 per ton is thus insured.
OKB SHIPMENTS PHOM MINING DISTRICTS.
Tbe ore shipments from Trail creek
average daily 125 tons, about half of
which goes liy way of the Northport
road. Those from the Slocan have
come to a stand-still, but from thu
Ainsworth district a large quantity of
ore is being shipped to the Pilot Bay
smelter,
AN ENGLISH  HYDRAULIC COMPANY.
Mr. Campbell-Johnston, civil engineer of Vancouver, B. 0„ returned
Monday last from it trip to London,
England, where, without any trouble,
be floated a hydraulic proposition ou
llie Fraser river at Lillooet. Mr, Johnston wus not in a position to give details, but the new company wiil ut
once commence putting In a plant to
cost nol far from $50,000.
A MAUVKLLOU8 FIND.
A marvellously rich discovery of
gold has been discovered by Oapt, Bur*
bridge on the, British side of llio international boundary line, between Trail
creek and Northport. To the present
time ten claims have been located.
In these claim J, so far as now known,
thero are nine gold-bearing ledges running north-west uml south-east, wilh
two cross veins running nearly at right
angles to thein. These ledges, with
the exception of one of the cross veins,
are free-milling, gold-bearing rock,
averaging in width from three to fourteen feet, and, so far ns known, assay-
lug from $11.00 to $11.00 in gold to Union.
Many samples of the ore wei'u
Ill-ought down by Oaptain Blirhl'ltlge
for further tests. It is clear, crystallno
quartst, showing free gold plainly visible to the naked oye,  In prospecting,
by pulverizing tho ore, I hi' gold can lm
freely washed out, showing Ilia metal
to be free milling and amalgamating
gold.
These ledges are all true Assures In
porphyrltlc syenite formation, lhey
are undoubtedly plulonic veins Injected
fruln below, and will beyond  a doiibl
Improve in slzo, regularity <>f course
nud value as depth is gained,

TIlO Wur-it That Gould lllipiK'll.
Tin1 London Statist, une nf tin- leading llnuncliil Journals of the world,
supports President Olevolands monetary policy, but it bus the perception
and the frankness to stale the case
with a degree of clearness, vigor nnd
knowledge never Indulged in by the
gold standard journals of the United
States. It will be observed that the
Statist reasons fnnn two hypotheses
one the demonetization of gold by the
United Stales, the oilier the free coinage of bulb gold and silvr. In the
other it predicts tho consequences of
free coinage to both metals at into I.
The Statist says:
" If gold is demonetized it is perfect
ly clear that there will be a greater
transfer of property front the capitalist and lending classes to llie producing and burrowing classes. This would
be of immense advantage to the west
and south, und would prove a serious
loss to the Eastern Stales and to Europe.
' Of course a great country like the
United States adopting ,-t silver standard would have great Influence on the
rest of the world, and silver would undoubtedly rise, but it would be long
before it reached 60 pence. The great
iductlon of debts all over tbo United
States liy n fall to silver would give
the farming and producing classes generally a sense of ft'i'i'doin and prosperity which they have not bad for many
years, and would probably give a great
stimulus to production, If silver did
not rise much for a while American
wheat, cotton, pork, etc., would compete with the produce of other countries at a very gicul advantage, and
there would be probably a very rapid
and great growth of exportsand at tbe
beginning un era of great prosperity.
"On tbe ot bet- band, the lending and
creditor classes would suffer, but their
losses would not affect production to
anything like, the same extent as the
gains of the debtors and producers
would do, Further, there would bu a
very serious fall in securities, which
would injure the capitalists and lenders both iii the United States nnd in
Europe,
" If the mints were opened for free
coinage, which would lend to make
tbe gold premium higher still, the premium would nut be very high, and the
reduction of the debt and lbe losses of
capitalists would be small compared
with the demonetization of gold."
This is a fair, t bought fui statement
of the worst that could come from the
free and unlimited coinage of silver at
1(1 to 1, Even if the worst should come
to pass, ns outlined by thu Statist it
would bring with it beneficent conditions for tbe masses of the connliy.
It would lift the existing depressing
burden of the dishonest appreciated
dollar—tlm dollar which made the recent panic virulent, which wiped out
equities, refused to do service when
most needed, threw millions out of employment, and reduced values of
staples below the actual cost of production. It would send the farmer to the
Held wilh a cheery song of hope. It
would carry tidings of safety to homes
threatened with foreclosure. It would
stimulate export*, encourage production, and be the means of creating
additional wealth and calling out additional industry, and these would in the
end enable the country to carry with
ease the capitalistic classes who ate
now so short-sighted Unit they will not
come down from the wagon and walk
up the bill, even when they see that
the patient beast of burden Ib no longer
able to pull the Increasing load.
To save the ship the wise master jettisons a part of the cargo, and he performs this duty regardless nf the protests of lhe owner. It is this duty
whicn is now demanded of the men
entrusted wilh lhe affairs of state.—

NEW LOCATIONS.
A glance at the column in which is
printed a list of the new locations
made iii our Boundary creek and other
blimps for the month of May, will convey, not only to mining men, but to
outsiders generally, a true idea of how
desirable a section of country this is in
which to carry on the business of prou-
pectlng. Great as has been tbe manlier of claims recorded in the past, we
do not hesitate, knowing ibe large extent of territory not yiit hroiighl under tbe close scrutiny of tbe vlgilent
seeker for cropping^ and float, to pre*
diet that many vera valuable locations
will be added before the summer is
oviji, Ic'j those already taken up. Some
may lie tempted to put the question:
Why, in a country where ipinrtz ledges
and mineral claims are so plentiful
Is there not inore evident activity?
We can answer Ihis question by asserting that all the money, at present being expended by capitalists, miners
and prospectors, in the development of
llieir several properties is. as it were,
being sunk in tlie ground. A line
appreciation of the value and extent
iif our district will not be made evident
imtil the question of transportation
has been solved, and a, cheaper and
:nore available means furnished for
he carriage of our ore (the greater
Sitirt of which now lies upon the
.tuiips) to smelting centres, than the
crude and expensive method now being pursued, of freighting iiy team and
pack horse,

QUEEN'S  BIRTHDAY.
The 24th af May Suitably Celebrated
at Kelowna.
Not so many people gathered this
year as last to witness the spurt s and
to join in celebrating the birthday of
our sovereign Queen; yet, what the
gathering lacked in numbers, was certainly counterbalanced by the enthusiastic manner in which those
present entered into the programme of
theday. Many were nodoubt debarred
from taking advantage of the steamboat excursion on the lake, owing to
the unsettled state of the weather.
The event, of the day was the cricket
match between the Kelowna and Vernon teams, out. of which the boys of
the valley once again emerged victorious. The heavy state of the ground,
prevented any very large scores being
made, yet those given below will furnish nn indication of good work being
done. At intervals the proceedings
were enlivened by splendid selections of
music rendered by tbe Kelowna band.
A severe criticism nf the game would
he unjust, ns sonic who took part have
only gained this. suniit|er's experience,
hut lhe performance of a few deserves
mention,
B. Cricliton's bowling was lirst class,
i specially in the second innings, having
a grand average of },1. overs 12.2,
maiden overs 3, runs 0, wickets 8.
A Cricliton was also in guod form,
his bowling being safe, and very few
runs were Ilia tip. off him. The balance
of the team played well, and it turned
out they overmatched Vernon,
R. Swift and Caesar wielded the willow as Julius Oeasar did of old the
sceptre, with a firm hand and steady
eye, T, Swift was very smart behind
the stumps, and evidently has been
there before.
There will very likely be a return
match some tin-p in July at Vernon, to
give tho Vernons a chance to redeem
the pennon and duNgc Again.

BENVOULIN  NOTES.
(From our own uprrcspondcnt.l
Bexvoulin, May, 28.—Last week,
whilst practicing Ibe game of football,
one of our worthiest residents, Mr,
Lysons, met witli uu accident which
has since caused him to be confined to his bed. During the
progress of the game be fell between
two other players, and in the rough
and tumble which ensued he was unfortunate enough to strain his buck.
Iain pleased to say that, under the
good treatment of Dr. Boyce, our resident physician, he is progressing favorably.
Mission creek has again overflown its
hanks, uni| has done considerable damage to the potid between the Benvoulin
Hotel and B. Leqitiine's residence,
Some of the settlers have sulfereil
severely, owing to the Hooding of their
hop yards, orchards, etc., und it is
feared the stream has not yet done its
worst,
Four and a half acres of hop roots
were ploughed out of Ihe ground this
spring by Messrs. Hobson and Lysons,
This was iniiile necessary, owing to the
foots (which were imported from California) being affected with disease,

Owiyoos.^th Jiumary, 1»>5. MJ The following suggestion may be of
uiuch practical utility bo those wl|o an*
|n the habit of tethering their horses,
|n order to miniuiise the danger that
|Iiit-iii,-to- lia' animal ill becoming entangled, and perhaps injured by the
rope. A stout iron or wooden bar is
driven into the ground, and over this
is slipped a stout piece of piping, gas*
p:pe preferably, and tlie rope tied
about il. No matter if the rope be-
ponies wound about tlm piping, it will
unwind itself as soon as the rope is
pulled by the animal. Ifgiaplpeis not
pbtuinable, a substitute can easily be
found hy taking arnpnd blpck of wood
and holing a hole through it large enough to admit of ils revolving freely
on the liar. Willi such a contrivance
and a swivel In the pope, pol only will
tlio animal be enabled tu obtain all tin-
feed within Ihi' circle, but its safely
lyhlle tethered is insured.
l'r.-u-tical I'nulti-y Raising,
Aimnt Midway there is a limited
area of agricultural liiudi the proprietors of I|u1dlug8 therefore should not
|iave any ilill'a-ulty in nbliiiulng the
t'OI'j' hlghcsl uiui-ki'l prices fm- whal
(hoy can p|iiiliu-c. There are, how*
ever, certain rnniinodltit-s which
||i (|i'inii|iil lbe year  I'OIIIld,  could be
provided hy |he raritinr at the enst of
little nini-o attention than is now devoted to other branches of husbandry,
which would yield still more lucrative
returns. Aninig these, egg and pnul*
|ry production are not tbe least Important, The following advice i» poultry
raisers, published in the Breeders' Guz-
I'tte, may thus prove timely :
"Fifteen years ago I Irieil fancy
poultry-raising, and, like all beginners,
I wanted too many kinds, and kept
adding to my stock until I bad twelve
yiiiieties, nnd almost made a failure, as
t did not then understand how. Some
kind and experienced friend said to me -.
I'Quit all but two kinds; give them nil
|he attention yoo have given the
twelve and scatter iheill. Have the
small ones in lots to themselves and
the old ones away from the young,
Feed them separate, make them roost
in separate places, have all roosting
•places moveable, and once a week liii-n
the musts over and coal oil tboni; clean
up the bouses and boxes pRce \\ week
the year through, (live a variety of
food—corn, wheat, oats, barley, buckwheat, and table crumbs; also fresh
grave|, crushed bone and green feed
fhe year through; goni| plover bay
pnee a week jn, the houses in the
winter. Quit the soft, fancy feeding,
(ind give them sensible care, and make
|i Biiccess of tbe business."
A Prospective Industry,
A company has been forined |n Port-
laud, Oregon, for the canning of horseflesh, The company is paying a very
fair dividend to shareholders, and, lbe
enterprise is no longer un an expert*
mental basis, It is stated that thi
flesh of the horse can scarcely be distinguished from excellent l.ccf, while
the hides and bones fetch good prices
pn the market.
The problem anent thp disposal of
tbe bands of wild horses of the Interior
has long been a vexed question, the introduction of the horse-canning industry, therefore, promises to afford a
piost satisfactory solution.

Epochs of Gold Formation.
It useil to be supposed tl\at gold was
ponflned to rocks of certain ages almost like coal, and that there was one
fra in which almost all lbe gold was
deposited. The researches nf the past
fifty years have shown thai thero is
really no such rule, and that the deposition of this nil-till is really dependent
pn a combination of chemical and physical conditions which htta come about
in different areas at different limes,
^be conditions may also be repeated in
(be saioii ;\i-ea at different epochs with
varying intensity. Gnld deposits nre
scattered along the Appalachians,
fi'ooi Canada to Alabama, aud most of
this gold seems io have been precipitated wilh quarts in veins of an ex-
lieinely early period, somewhat before
the Palezoic, Hut there is little question that a small part of those, deposits
were formed much later, dining or
even after the coal period, The somewhat scanty supply of gold in the eastern portion of the couo|i;y is, perhaps,
in part attributable lo the extent to
which the auriferous veins have been
put away by millions of years of ot'O-
flnn,
It would seem, geologically speaking, thnt the quantity of gold near the
exterior of the earth bus Increased

Ki'pin'atlng n^lil from ill nli Sainl.
Iii Idaho, Washington, and Oregon
peilain rivet'beds contain inlltllto particles of gold, associated with a peculiar black sand, The latter, hpwpvei-.
forms only a small portion, say one*,
pighth or one-tenth of the material in
which lbe gold is distributed. Two
difficulties are experienced in trying lo
polled the precious metal by washing
this in sluices. Tbe black sand litis
(ibnut the sauic sppeillc gravity us gold,
and settles down when the refuse is
parried off. And the gold is so coaled
with oxide ihal it will not amalgamate
with mercury, its iu qiiarl/.-ininiug processes, The "concentrate," therefore,
pollUlnssui'li an amount of bulky und
ftllUWt' WOl'l.tl'*?8!! H'tdeiiul  that soiiie-
to be smelted. This process must often
be conducted at a considerable distance, owing to the cost of appropriate fluxes. The iron will perhaps pay
the sinellrr's charges, but those of the
railroad and the express companies for
freight nre much more formidable
The deposits of gold mixed with black
sand, however, are believed lo be enormous, One little island in Snake
river, at Boise Oily, Idaho, is supposed
to have $12,000,000 thus stored away in
it. Hence, I he sepai ation of t|)0 inm
from the gold of these iiiiii Bloillar concentrates is a work to which many lu*
venters have addressed themselves.
A simple machine for performing
this work Ini* a eenl ly been patented
by Henry Anion, at one lime in the
employ of llu Sl indard Oil Company,
hut now a resident of Boise (lily.
From a hoppei no top of an upright
box he lots the mixture fall lu a small
stream past one or more electromagnets, These are place one above another with their poles projecting hori-
/.imally toward the falling sand, Iiiii
iiiii. quite touching il. Tlie magnets
attract and draw t<> one side thu iron
particles, so that when Ibe hitter are
released lhey fall Into a dllferunl set of
spouts from Ihe undiverted grains of
Kind, ."he current which energizes the
magnets is switched no and olf automatically hy a cummillntor, and, of
course, when it Is cut olf the magnets
release the iron nud nre then ready lo
be energized afresh for renewed service.
Tlie river and sand varies ill richness,
but Mr. Arden has found specimens
that yield a Ion of concentrates to
forty of sand, apd these concentrates
are worth $P7B nr $100 a ton, As yet
the new system has not heen put into
practice on a commercial scale, but Mr.
Arden claims that a $1,000 plant em*
liodying his ideas would he capable of
separating gold worth $100 fnnn black
sand every day. This machine lias
been carefully tested and publicly exhibited in Boise for several weeks, and
is beginning lo attract attention ill the
East, It.seems to be adapted also to
use with unmanageable sulphurets
found in quartz mines. Hence be is
hopeful that his invent inn will In time
materially add to thp poonlry's output
of precious metals,

A Woman's Version of tin- lllble.
It is Impossible to foresee what the
new woman movement will lead to-
and the prospects at present are somewhat appalling, To produce a revised
version of the Uilile is one of tin latest
ideas of the movers, and tbe Philadelphia Inquirer reports progress as follows: "The London Sisterhood of
Advanced Women, which has been organized'to einanicipale tho feminine
sex.' claims that the Bible has always
given women a subordinate and subservient position, and it has, therefore,
begun the task of revising llie hook,
and making a version ' for women on
ly.1 It has already gut through the
book of Genesis, and the other books
will be taken up iu due order. In llle
new story of the creation, Eve is vlndi,
ciiteil for eating the apple, and is plac.
ed ou an even fooling with Adam, the
whole responsibility lieing placed on
tlie serpent.
