KASLO, B. C., FRIDAY, SEPT. 10.1897.
NO. 10.
Figures that Demonstrate Their Val-
Siipt. E. ,1. Field on the Present and Future Prospects of the Slocan.
"The fact that the mines continue
shipping is prima fade evidence that
thoy are making money," snid Supt. E.
J. Field of the Wonderful mine,recently to a News representative while the
price of silver was several points lower
than at present.
"How much lower a price on silver
can the Slocan mines a Stand?" was
"Considerably lower, especially if
load continues to advance as it is do
ing," was the reply. "Take, for in
stance, the ore shipments of the Won
derful for the past 11! months and apply present market quotations lo them.
Wo have shipped 636 tons, or .'14 car
loads of ore to Tacoma, Everett, Pueblo and Kaslo. From this we have received 62,171 ounces of silver valued at
$40,020 and 7.12,(504 !bs. of lead valued
at 120,641, making a total of 961,161
The moan or average price that produced these figures were $11 per cwt
for lead and (Hi cents per ounce for silvor. The mean or average values of
all Slocan ores will probably nearly
correspond with ours, which run 111.20
ozs. silvor to the ton and 00.40 per cent
load, giving a value at these ligures of
$111.26 per ton of 3hipping ore. It
should bo borne in mind also that these
dollars are gold dollars: for unnocos
sary as that statement may seem to
most people, certain easterners are
found who want to scale down tho ligures of the output of a silver mine by
the por cent of difference in tin- metal
value of a silvor dollar and a gold
"If this mass of silvor and lead metal
were thrown on the market today (September 3rd) with silver at 52 cents per
ounce and lead at $3.85 per cwt., thero
would be a loss on tho silvor from last
year's average of 6(( cents per ounce, of
$8,703; while there would bo a gain on
lead of $0,228, which would nearly
oij utilize each other at the present figures. But with the certainty of the
advance in lead and the strong probability of the advance in silvor, tho coming year *b apt to be a much more prosperous one for the Slocan miners than
the last one was.
, "If dry ore silvor mines in tho United
Slates close, that will almost certainly
bring up the price of silver by curtailing the supply, and our silver lead
mines can run right, along. This country has, so far, developed Itself from its
own resources. Without an exception,
the oro bearing veins of the district
have steadily improved with development. No real mine in the S'ocan district has as yet shown any docreaso in
ore producing capacity, On tho contrary, they either remain stable or improve with depth.
"Other features that make this district appeal strongly to any business
man seeking legitimate enterprise, are
these: No costly machinory Is needed
for the development of these minos.
Nearly all the mines so far discovered
can be developed by tunnels from the
surface driven on tho vein, at an average expense of less than $8 por foot.
Tlie only tools required for the exploitation of these mines are common tunnel cars,or wheel-barrows, picks, shovels and hand drills. The ores extracted
go as direct to market as do tho products of the farm.
"Our ores are high grade. If millions
can bo made out of low grado mines,
why should any ono be apprehensive of
tho future of this district? The Rossland ores taken as they run throughout
the district will not average over $20
per ton, and are costly to work. The
famous Treadwell mine near Juneau,
Alaska, has an average ore valuo of
less than $5 per ton. The Homestake
In tho Black Hills, Dakota, has an average ore value of less than $4 per ton,
and yet has declared $9,000,000 in dividends.     ,   ,.      .
. ' 'The man wlio owns a gold mine generally needs one or two good silver
mines to pay its expenses until it begins to pay dividends; while with comparatively little development a silver-
lead mine like the Payne will net its
owners $100,000 per month." 1

Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 5.���A special
to the Journal from Sedalia says that
G. W. Corking, a capitalist, and Leo
Cloud, an expert mining engineer of
Cincinnati, representatives of a St.
Louis andiCincinnati syndicate, loavos
here tomorrow for tho west coast of
Mexico to practically verify the value
of gold placer and quartz mineB which
have recently been secured by the syndicate through concessions and mineral
land grants from the republic of
Messrs. Corkins and Cloud will go
direct to Ilermosillo and from there to
the gold fields in the now Kldorado, located in the Yaqui Indian country,
which has just beenViponod to entry to
white men.
This part of Mexico has been explored but little by the whites, but if
the reports of the syndicate prospectors
aro true the mountain ranges alopg the
west coast of Mexico are richer even
than those of tho Klondike.
The placer mines are said to be mar-
velously rich in scale and nugget gold,
while the quartz rock in the upper
ledges contains veins of free milling
ore which assays from $50 to $200 pet-
The syndicate succeeded in keeping
the discovery a secret while securing
its mining patents and concessions, and
If the reports received here are substantially correct the syndicate will be
able to turn the tide of fortune hunters
from the gold fields of Alaska to the
Eldorado of Mexico.

The above schedule shows silver today to be one and three-quarter cents
higher than last Friday and two and
one-half cents higher than its low record of September 1st. Last Tuesday
it rose to 54J, aocording to Spokane
papers, but our wires here gavo it 54J.
Lead also continues to rise, having
gone up 15 cents per cwt, during the
week. As noted in our metal quotations elsewhere, its price today is,
brokers, $4: exchange. $4.40. The relations of exchange prices and brokers
prices aro discussed further on. Yesterday's first wire gave lead at 86.80
accompanied by rumors that this was
for future delivery and none offered,
on a wild market. This seems to have
been a mistake, however, its a subsequent wire gave the same figures as
The. Lead Industry Booms,
A dispatch from St. Louis says that
prosperity has struck the lead industry
and the market is on the boom. Prices
aro higher than they have been for
the past live years with the prospect of
attaining the highest point in the history of the metal. Missouri mines,
which were on the point of closing
down, have resumed operations full
blast, aud will produce ��a larger tonnage than ever before. Since August,
1896, when the price of lead reached
tho lowest, it has boen gradually climbing. It is confidently predicted by
competent authority that the price will
reach $4.50 before the close of the year.
Exchange Price vs. Brokt-r'H rrlee.
"Lead was quoted at $4.25 and $4.35
in Now York last Friday, that being
the highest price attained in over live
years. I confidently expect it to reach
$4.50 and possibly higher,"said John A.
Finch to a Spokesman-Review reporter last Saturday.
"You refer to the exchange quotation
and not the brokers', do you not?" he
was asked.
"Tho exchange [quotation is the real
price," answered Mr. Finch. "The
brokers have ^ot together and fixed up
a method of naming a 'brokers' price',
which is really no price at all. If you
ask a broker about it, he will toll you
it is tho price for a largo quantity. If
you offer to buy at that price, he will
tell you it is not the car load figure,
but tho price for large lots, and if ho is
pinned down closely ho will refuse to
sell at the price quoted. The exchange
price tells the true stale of the
Continuing Mr, Finch said: "Load
is a luxury. Statistics prove that a
largo por cent goes into the manufacture of white lead, which is used in
painting. When times aro hard,houses
go uupalntod, and when prosperity
returns there is a general desire to
brighten the home with a fresh coat of
paint, and so the demand for white lead
is strengthened. I am told that at
presont tho sale of that product is immense, and of course that strengthens
the market for lead. When you stop
to consider it, there are many more
ways in which lead is a luxury than in
which It is a necosslty. A large per
cent of tho annual output goes into ammunition, and another liberal portion
is usod in plumbing. Whon times are
close, men do less hunting and not so i
many houses ��re fitted with water |
pipes. It will lie readily understood,!
therefore, that the return of more
prosperous conditions jtbroughout tho
country must havo a tondency to make
the price of load go higher."
Remarkable Letter From Moreton Frewcn.
,'Moroton Frowen, the eminent writer J
on political economy, ha^ sent a very
interesting lettor to Judge Goodwin of
the Salt Lake Tribune, upon the subject of bimetallism and the advancement which tho American eoraniission-
.ors havo made and are making with
the European powers. When the commissioners started upon their mission.
Frowen did not attach much importance to tlieir mission. For this reason
the tone of his lettor is :he moro significant.    He says:
You see, our people hnve never hHii any practical respect for your financial methods: Indeed, why should they? Thus the movement
of a great nation: the bimetallism of Hryau.tlic
bimetallismoi McKinloy had quite failed to
impress us. Hut this quite unexpected movement toward free coinage in France has come
as a bolt from the blue.*  _��
French finance has always appeared to us
wholly admirable. That thrifty conservative
France should adopt the attitude that the two
great republics could safely "go it alone," if
our Indian mints reopened, and if Berlin would
agree to take a little silver annually, and sell
none���it is hardly possible to overrate the moral effect of such a development as this. It is not
America, then, that ta dragging forward an unwilling France; it is rather France that is about
lo become the target of the gold press!
When Woleott returned from France last February and declared that Meline, the French
prime minister, was in a likely mood, he said
very little more, and the thing seemed to us
wholly improbable. But here is liaron t'our-
ccl, the French ambassador, collaborating with
your men at every step, and Meline declared to
a friend the other day, "If we (the government)
arc put out because of our support of silver,
we shall not be out long."
You can then imagine tlie surprise of our
people at the attitude ol the French ministry
Ilryan. we were told, was a low fellow; he was
a "repudiatoi"-a "lifty-cent dollar" mini; but
here is a French government working quietly
for a forty-flve-ceiit dollar,for a r.atio of 1 tol."i},a
and our press, in dumb surprise, has not yet
found any adjectives,
It is strange tlint the member of this cabinet
from whom the least was hoped, Sir Michael
Beach, the chancellor of the exchequer, is apparently the most anxious of all to help tilings
forward to a speedy settlement; while on the
other hand thai member whose ipeochesln the
past have done the most to arouse public opinion hes*e, to the great dangers Impending, is today making all the trouble within the cabinet.
I refer to Goschen, who was tlie chancellor of
the exchequer in Lord Salisbury's former government. It was this same Mr. llosehen who,
when representing this government at the
���i. netary eonlerenee in 1'aris in 187K, snid;
"'Hi general effect whicii would be made on
every hi "d to get rid of tlie white metal might
Occasion t ��� greatest disorders in tlie economic
world and pi,, luce a crisis more disastrous
than any within Ihe memory of nian,"
It was he also who described the gold mono-
metallic theory as "mischievous" and "I'topi-
an." Is it not amazing thstwhen by consent
of other nations, we ate to have gold here, if
we rigidly demonetize gold in India, making
India still the free silver "sink"���Is it not
amazing that Mr. Gosolien, who has brought
us all to recognize the shoals we are running
on, should now be npprenlly unnerved and
vacillating; determined In discover imaginary
ilifliculties and to invent dangers?
Bimetallism atl to 16341 I'bnt Is rupee exchange at ten to the sovereign; the tnel and
the yen nnd nil the exchanges with sho.OOU.ixki
of Asiatics deprived of the present gold premium of 1110 per cent. This seems too good to be
true. Commercially it means a new heaven
and a new earth ; a far better world tomorrow
for all the white races. It is better not to anticipate such blessings as near at. hand; but 1
do feel, after a period of despondency, thnt perhaps the very lasl chapters of tliis strange liis-
inrv of financial anarchy, which dates back to
187:i, are even now being written.
Silver liecoming Scarce In India
The New York  Evening Host's London correspondent cabled last Friday
as follows:
I have just learned that, following tlie recent
decision of tlie India government to suspend
council drafts, it is now decided thnt the Indian
government will receive nexl Tuesday tenders
for drafls for rupees amounting to about 18,000,-
U00; that is to say, instead .of selling drafts.
their balances In India are so low' that they
want to buy remittances. This fact, which
will probably not bo known to tlie London
iilnrket nnlil tomorrow, Is of utmost interest,
as It will nt once bring into prominence the
-ilvcr position in India and tlie scarcity oi silver currency on asloned by requirements connected with the war operations of tlie frontier.
War is probable iii India and remittances of
the kind wanted by the Indian government are
believed to In- scarce.
I .mill.>n Smtlnt  Predicts ii Sharp lteioverj
Various reasons are given for the full
in the price of silver, tho chief being
tho absence of buyers, but wo believe
the real reason to bo tho desire of
American speculators to sell a large
block which they had been holding as
a hedge against a fall in stocks, says
London Statist. Apparently, speculators, seeing tho improvement in trade
in tho United States, and witnessing
tho rapid rise in prices of Amorican
railway securities, were anxious to participate in the improvement, and consequently sold their silver at whatever
price it would fetch, with the result
that buyers largely stood aloof, and tbe
price fell to an unprecedented figure.
There are, however, signs that the
selling has reached its limit, and that
the accumulated stocks havo boen disposed of. We may consequently witness a sharp recovery in tho price of
silver, as India, and the Continent also,
are merely waiting for indications that
no further fall is likely to occur before
they again buy freely. The fact that
China still refuses to buy, and that a
considerable quantity of yen is being
shipped to Japan, rendering tho prospect, of Japanese sales of silver not improbable, nave also been factors in inducing speculators to hold on to their
stocks no longer. When the price
touched 264d a good many purchases
were made for India, but when it. was
seen that sales continued to be pressed
buyers again stood aloof. '
er Ore Dumps.
Pioneers Heading for New Southwestern Oregon
Gold Fields.
Ainsworth, Sept. !).���This camp hab
always been considered a silver-lead
camp. The indications, however, are
that in the near future, its gold output
will nearly if not quite equal its other
oro shipments. On the dumps of the
Highland and Highlander mines, which
have beer, accumulating for some time
past, preparatory- to shipping, some
samples were picked up that showed
gold signs so strongly that assays wore
made which indicated the proximity of
a large gold, ore body. Investigating
further, Maxwell Stevenson, manager
of the Highlander, took p large piece
of the same kind of rock from tho Highlander tunnel and sent it to the U. S.
assay office at Charlotte, North Carolina. Returns have just been received
showing that it runs $20.70 in gold.
Preparations aro being made to have
all ore testod for gold hereafter before
it leaves the camp.
C. F. Olson of the Hot Springs hotel
also reports a good gold assay from his
property, the Annie, on the divide between Coffee creek and Woodbury
creek, where over 20 other claims arc
already staked. The returns gave $21
in gold and -45(1 ozs. of silver. On the
Olson, another claim near, he got an
assay of 100 ozs. of silver and tio per
cent lead. These claims are about 6
miles back of the Skyline and are in
granite and porphyry.
OIT for Oregon (.old  l'lclils.
Di F. Strobock and I. N. Knight, pioneers of the camp, have had their
blood fired by reports coming in private letters of very rich gold finds in
southwestern Oregon, near the California line, and will start to investigate
tho same next MOnday.' They say that
no newspaper publication has y'ot been
made of these finds that they have
hoard of. They were made by some
members of tho U. S. Geological Survey who have kept it quiet for themselves and their friends. Reports state
that from $1,000 to #5,000 per month,
has been cleared up per man.

Will It Ik removed from New Denver
to Sandon?
A. curding to tho Saiuiim Mining He-
view; Col. Itfrkor,* Minister of Mines, is
quoted as saying, "Wo may havo to remove the New Denver record office to
SiuuUm." The Mining Review further
remarks: "Every mau who knows anything of the situation is fully awaro
that to the present two-thirds of the i
silver mining of tho country li done
within three miles of Sandon. and sev-
on-eighths of the whole shipping, if ire
except the Halls Mines at Nelson. It
is also an acknowledged fact that the
hills round aboul Sandon are literally
full of ore, whieh will call for untold
entries, transfers, development, improvement, etc., all of which call for
official records from time to time. Then
why should those interested be forced
to trudge distances away to make registrations, when they could just as
readily be made at home? The Review .
is not called ou to say whether or not
the removal of the office from New
Denver WouWibe better than the establishment of a new one here. This is
a point on which the government must
express its own opinion, after considering local needs and administrative
economy. All we have to deal with are
the facts as we Hnd them, and they are
that Sandon demands a record office,
and if the government is impelled by a
desire m properly servo the public interests, as we think it is, it will not
longer withhold a record office from
thi. place." Ml 11M M CI    AM n OU A CT '"" nU thc way down m" to tllB narrow

More men are said to he prospecting in
the Natural Bridge district of Sweet
Clrass county in Montana, than ever he-
fore and that some exceedingly promising finds have been made. On the Oregon group of mines, a half interest in
which was recently purchased hy John
M. Smith of the Smith Hros. Sheep Company, uhout 20 men arc at present employed. A few days ago a contract wus
let for the driving of a 200-foot tunnel
and when this is finished there will he
in all about 700 feet of tunnels in the
Oregon mine alone. It is a free-milling
gold proposition which runs about $15 to
the ton. Three hundred tons of the ore
have been taken out and a five-stamp
mill will lie at work upon it by Novem
mine. The ore is handled by the John
S. George, the new 40 ton engine bought
last year, and it would seem Impossible
to handle more ore than one engine can
deliver, as on a truck only three miles
long two trains can not he worked to
advantage, and the line is too crooked
to work long double-header trains. Hut
the old 25 ton engine is used as a switch
engine, hauling all the timbers from thc
lower yards up to the third leg of the
switchback, where tlie loaded cars ure
turned over to the ore train.

Valdare saw his opportunity of venturing on an absolutely new field.    The
difficulties are so much greater than on
an ordinary that no comparison can bo
made. Both the Vahlares practice two
or three hours a day to keep proficient
In their work. But ln spite of everything they can never be sure that all
their tricks will be successful.
As ls nearly always the case with performances such as the Valdares give, n
comparatively eusy trick ls quite as
likely to appeal to the public n�� one to
which they have devoted week after
���6Sk of practice to accomplish. The
most difficult performance that Vnldare
takes part ln Is riding Ms machine with
the front wheel taken off altogether. He
does this standing on the pedals, stooping slightly to ,hold tbe steortag-hend
tube In Iwth hands, the body thrown
forward nt an angle of nt least 10 degrees In front of au Imaginary Hue
drawn from the axle upwards. In this
position lies the secret which it took the

THE bullet-proof cloth invented by Brother Caslmir Zeglen of the Catholic
Order of the Resurrectionists was successfully tested in Chicago the other
afternoon on the roof of a building nt West Twelfth street and Ogden
avenue. Brother Zeglen stood behind a framework of wood, iron and armor
plate, with nn opening in it big enough to expose Mb ehest. He placed the bulletproof coat over his chest, and then Lieut. Sarnecki of the Austrian army fired
several shots from a revolver from a distance of ten paces. The bullet-proof cloth
did the work. Tho bullets barely entered the cloth, nnd could be picked out
easily. On the other side of the cloth there was only a small mark to show for
the shot. One shot wns fired from a 50-caliber revolver. Zeglen's chest was free
from any abrasion. There wns n corps of physicians present to see the test. After
several shots hail heen fired nt the inventor's protected chest, Dr. F. S. Wester-
chulte put on the urmor nnd hnd thc lieutenant tire nt him. He snid when the
bullet struck it felt ns if he hnd been gently patted by a child. All those present
declared the test a complete success.
strength from the ground and rides
along gaily with his machine pawing
the air, like a rearing horse.
Once In Cincinnati he rode one-third
of a mile in this extraordinary position
in 1 minute 17 3-5 seconds. Until he
dismounted he had no Idea what the
strain had been. The moment his feet
touched the ground they gave way as
if every muscle had been paralyzed.
To climb through the diamond frame
of his machine Is another amusement
In which Valdare Indulges. It can be
done by any one who cares to imitate
his movements, provided they possess
the Heaven-sent gift of patience.
Valdare commences by standing on
the left pedal with the left foot, and,
swinging the right leg to the same side,
he thrusts it through the frame, sink-
lug tlowu till head and shoulders are
even with the front wheel on the left
side. Then, with both bands grasping
the tire of the front wheel, wlilch Is
turned nt right nugles, he swings the
head and body back on a level with the
frame. Now the head Is put through,
and the easier half of thc trick Is accomplished.
He has still to come up on the farther
side, und to do this must shift his hands
from the wheel to the handle-bars.
Thrusting the right shoulder well forward, he grasps the left handle with
the left hand from the right side of the
machine, keeping the right hand still
on the front wheel. Then he lies well
forward anil straightens up, swinging
the left foot over the saddle, and taking
care the wldle not to put too much
weight on the right-hand pedal, since
there is uothlng to prevent the machine
starting backwards and throwing out
the balance. What could be more simple?
There are several pretty exhibitions
which Mrs. Valdare gives alone. In
one she mounts her machine with her
back turned to the handle-bars and
rides It thus round nnd round, sometimes steering with one hand, sometimes folding both anus before her.
In another, keeping her left foot on
Its pednl the whole time, she swings
her right leg over, nnd placing It on tho
brim of tho wheel, lowers the machine
till it rests on the right pednl. Prom
this posture, and without even touching
the ground herself, she throws the machine to nn upright position and starts
off as If there had been no Interruption
When riding at full speed she will
now and then spin her front wheel
round like a teetotum, without wavering an Inch out of her course.
More showy even than this, however, ls tlie way In which she rides,
standing first on one pedal and then on
the other, keeping both legs always on
the same side of the machine; or another trick, ln which she and her bus-
band swing round and round each other, changing from one side of the machine to the other, while, as if by
magic. It continues to run diligently
about the stage.
Whenever a woman asks for safety

Unique Little Work by Lady Jephson
Which la the Talk of London.
Lady Jephson, wife of Sir Alfred
Joplison, has brought out her "Canadian Serapbook," and the unique little
work is the talk of London. The scrap-
book fashion is winning Its way well
Into the affections of the women In
England, and Lady Jephson's book has
given U additional charm. It ls a pretty book, put together in the style of the
old, extinct commonplace book, which,
by the way, seems lo be reviving If
London gossip tells the truth. The
author of the "Canadian Serapbook" ls
a native of Canada, but has lived
abroad and In England since her marriage. She hns not only a talent for
letters, but ls adept at art, and spends
most of her time ln Italy. With French
blood ln her veins, and with a perfect
knowledge of German and Italian,
Lady Jephson Is a most chnrmlng type
of cosmopolitan. Although her love of
art ties her to Italy for the greater part
of the year, Lady Jephson has managed
to travel very much In other countries.
At present she Is established In a pretty
new house in Bolton street, London,
where she and ber husband will spend
all of tbe summer. An evidence of her
nblllty In art is seen In the beautiful
drawings Illustrating the "serapbook"
and In some of the drawings she recently sent to Prince Charles of Denmark
as a wedding gift.
��� An Electric Hansom.
The new electric hansom which Is
now piling In New York has some
advantages over the ordinnry hansom
ns well us over the motor car. The render will see from the Idea thnt a "fare"
can easily step in and out, while his
view ls unobstructed by the horse. A
speaking tul>e enables him to speak
with the driver, and an electric lamp
to read by night. Tliere ls no vibration, and the motor is noiseless in action. The electricity Is carried ln ne-
.'umulators tinder the seat of the driver, who couitrols the starting, stopping, and brake mechanism by hand
levers. The vehicle runs on pneumatic
tires, and a bell warns people of Its approach. It can attain a speed of tweu-
ty-flve miles an hour on a level road,
but fifteen miles an hour 1b regarded as
the most suitable rate.
For Indigestion.
Among the many remedies for Indigestion ls the agveeable one of the
rocking chair. An excellent medical
authority declares that the slow, re dicing motion after meals stimulates the
digestive functions and gives marked
relief. The patient ought to be placed
In aa almost horizontal position.

The "auri sacra fames," or holy
thirst for gold, as the classics aptly put
[ti is on tbe increase all over tho country. Moral writers frequently take a
perverted view of this natural instinct
and fall in with tho popular misquotation from the biblo that"Money [instead
uf tbo love of money] is the root of all
evil." Generally this view is followed
by a tirade against wealth and gold in
It is this natural desire, however, on
the part of man to better his condition,
t bat has developed tbe resources of the
'world, "The divine discontent" that
urges us on to butter things, even
: bough material ones,is a prompting of
Nature that is neither to bo condemned
nor ignored. In the slow procoss of
evolution this condition may carry with
it unpleasant features which man can-
nut shake himself loose from at once,
hut the general tendency is upward.

intense interest exhibited in the now

A insworth coi respoudence this week,
and last, but not by any means least,
because of its nearness to us, tho free
gold and telluride gold discoveries in
the Lardeau, just to the north of us,
all show that tho thirst for gold is
just as great and as powerful as in tbe
days of '.5 and '50,
Still, discretion needs to be exercised
if possible, regarding all of these fields.
The bohemian or gipsy Inclinations of
i in- iivi-rago prospector lead him to
believe that richer Holds are always just,
over the divide, and to neglect those
nearer home. The silver-load mines of
the Slocan, produce indirectly gold dollars just as surely as do Klondike plu-
ret's. Tbo wonderful advance recently
occurring in lead, the general upward
tendency Of silver once more, and tho
-tiling probability of still better things
in the future for both of these metal?,
incline one to ask if bo bad better not
be sine before lpavitig tht Slocan that
be is not about to leave better things
for poorer ones.
Mayor Green thinks that it must
have been an American paper published in Klondike, that, according to
Ihe Province, wanted to know who was
president of this country���Mr. Buttock
or Mr. Laurier.
These arp great days tor newspaper
changes. ,On the heels Of the pur-
rhtise of the Rossland Miner has
come tho Wardner (B. C.) International with the statoment that W. H.
Cowles, proprietor, of the Spokesman-
Review of Spokane, has purchased the
Spokane Evening Chronicle and will
run the two papers a la the Portland
Morning Oregonian and Evening Telegram.
As Alderman Buchanan remarked
Ihe other evening, after listening to
the letters regardine the Monto/.urpa
concentrator and the city water supply,
"When the doctors'disagree, who shall
decide?"  These letters quoted largely
in our city council proceedings published last week, make very ��interesting reading, and almost if not quite
justify tho council's notion to pursue a
policy of inaction, and Micawber-like,
"wait for something to turn up."
Tbe old adage that "a lie will travel
seven leagues while truth is putting on
its boots," receives an illustration this
week in the absurd reports abotit cholera in Sandon. The report conspicuously displayed in tho San Francisco
Examiner will be read all over the continent, and perhaps the world, before
the comparatively quiet denial of it
will be received, ln many cases, of
course, the denial will never be heard.
The penny-a-liner newspaper correspondent who will deliberately libel any
section of country in this way should
be suppressed with much otnphasis. If
tho Examiner had taken the trouble to
wire to Sandon or Kaslo before publishing this, it might have gotten the
truth, even if it had DSpoiled1 a sensational newspaper yarn.

The Lade Brothers Make Rich Discoveries Tributary to Kaslo.
Three Nova Scotia preacher's sons
are feeling quite well those days over a
gold strike made by them 8,000 foot
above sea level near Ac summit which
divides the drainage of tho Lardo and
Duncan rivers. They aro the Lado
brothers-���Vincent, .lames and William. They also have a fourth partner,
A. E. Gunn. Vincent and James Lade
havo been in Kaslo this week superintending a mill test of two tons of the
ore, which they brought down with
them. The figures on this mill test,
they aro not yet ready to give out, although it is understood that they run
high. The oro is partly free gold and
partly gold in tellurium. Tho pockot-
sampleB that they showed contained
specks of free gold, plainly visible, as
big as a pin head. A large telluride
sample was taken to Nelson, which was
pronounced very remarkable by all
who saw it.
These discoveries are generally
spoken of as at the head of Gainer
creek, but are ss.id to bo really just
over the divide half a mile above timber line on the Duncan river slope and
at the head of the west fork of tho
Duncan river. This being the case
they are really tributary to Kaslo
through its water connections with the
Duncan river and Howsor lake. Tho
Bad Shot mine is about 000 foot below
tho Lade group and about one-half
mile south. The distance from hero to
tho head of Hall oreek, or to the main
Duncan river, is about eight miles.
The proposed Kaslo and Duncan River
Ry. would thus pass within eight mlleB
of their claims. The tind will doubtless stimulate the building of the
talked of wagon road to the Hall croek
and Duncan mines. Tho outlet le
much easier this way. The distance to
Ferguson from tho Lado group, is 15
miles southwesterly, 11 of which Is
trail. To Trout Lake City is 20 miles.
The two tons of oro brought to Kaslo
for a mill test were packed out in (10
sacks, on horses, and shipped via the
Arrow lakes and Sandon. It has the
distinction of being the first ore
shipped out of the Lardoau region.
Other properties, like the Silver Cup,
are, so far, piling up their ore waiting
for better transportation facilities.
The Lade brothers have had gold
mining experience in Nova Scotia. In
prospecting this region July 29th of
this year, their practiced eyes saw
gold signs and they proceeded immediately to locate their claims. Other
gold .signs had been noted thereabouts
before. Neil McFadden had found
free gold float on Hall creek this year.
The Bannockburn group has produced
ore running $8 in gold besides from
50 to ��0 ounces in silver and 8. per
cent, lead.
Development work began on the
Lade group, August 10, twelve days
after location. The claims are llvo���
the Olive Mabel, Little Fred, Foundation, Goldenv;ile and Annie L. The
ore Bhipped Is from the Olive Mabel.
Both this claim and the Little Fred
show free gold on the surface. Various
assays on this shipment made by J. M.
M. Benedum, assay or at Silverton, ran
from $97 to J2,98ll to the ton. Grab
samples taken as they ran from each
sack gave assay results that justiiiod
an estimate of $-480 per ton on this
shipment. An assay made in Kaslo of
a rich specimen gavo $11,340 per ton.
Tho formation of the claims Is gray
slate aud seems to Indicate .a blanket
load under numerous small leads, cross
veins and fissures. Tho vein on tho
Olive Mabel is a loot wide and yielded
five tons from un eight foot shaft, out
of which tho two tons aforesaid wore
selected and Bhipped. This vein
runs under a glacier a short distance
from tbe shaft.
The Lade brothers are preparing to
return to thoir claims soon and hope to
do about a month'B further wor]_ before
the winter of that high altitude
sets in. Their discoveries have
created great excitement from
Revelstoko to Calgary and tho region
is already called the Lardeau Klondike. Prospectors are said to have
staked claims for miles around ln tho
snow, which is already some inches
deep at that height, and a boom is
looked for in the mining record office
at Trout Lake City.

John Taylor, Cook at thc Selkirk Mine,
in thc Toils.
An "eyo that never sleeps" from the
western states has been hovering
around Sandon for some timo past, and
the arrest of John Taylor, cook in the
Selkirk about two miles from town, explains matters, says the Sandon Mining Review. Constable Mountain
passed through Kaslo with his prisoner Friday evening on route for Nol-
son with extradition papers, where he
was surrendered to United States officers. Taylor is a man about 36 yoars
��� of age, with rather a light complexion
but black moustache and grey eyes.
Ho stands about 6 feet 7 inches high
and weighs probably 146 pounds. He
has worked around Sandon for some
months past, tho latter fout.being cook
at the Selkirk mine where he was
when arrested by Constables Mountain
and Callin about noon on Thursday.
Constable Mountain was away at
Kamloops with a prisoner for some
days and on his return Thursday
among his mail matter was a warrant
endorsed by Judge McAdam of Nelson,
asking bIm to arrest John Taylor for
shooting a sheriff in Arkansas some
four years ago who was going to arrest
him for cattle stealing. But very little was learned of Taylor's history
while hero. Ho put in his time the
same as other men of his class, and
said but little about himself, but generally gave out ho was tho owner of a
ranch in Idaho, and on one occasion
said he had been in Arkansas.
Coining down, however, he made the
damaging admission that he had expected to be arrested but not for murder. Another damaging feature in his
case is that he is alleged to havo several aliases, tno last one being "John
Taylor." He took his arrest very coolly, howover, and wont with the officers
without a murmur.
Tho detective sent here to locate his
man, had about given up the job after
a most diligent search, when ho was
advised from headquarters that Taylor
had written a letter on one of tho letter
heads of the Selkirk mine. This was
the clue that led to his location and ur-
rest. But for this the detective would
have gone home satisfied that Taylor
was not In tho vicinity of Sandon.
further Detail* from NiiUon.
Nelson, B. C, Sept. 6.���Jesse B. Roper, alias James Hardy, alias J. Taylor, charged with tho murder of Sheriff
A. G. Beylor of DoWitt, Baxter county, Arkansas, haB waived extradition.
He will be taken to tho boundary line
today by Constable Inee, where ho will
be turned over to Louis Cass Smith,
present sherilT of Baxter county, Ark.
The murder occurred in June, 1892,
and ever sinco the officers of the state
havo been on his track. If thoy havo the
right man, his correct name is Joseph
Hardy. The accused man had been
caught ln a serious breach of the
peace in Arkansas, and a possee was
sent out with a warrant to capture him.
They ran him into a barn and from its
shelter he fired on the officers, killing
Sheriff Beyler. He made his oscape
from the barn* and when pursued by
tho officers bent on avenging the
'vleath of their chiof, he fired several
times, killing a valuable hope and
badly wounding another officer.

Mr. and Mrs. John S. Holland Receive
a Tleasant Surprise.
The fifth or wooden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. John S. Holland was pleasantly observed last Sunday evening at the residence of their
brother I. D. Holland. Mr. and Mrs.
J. S. Holland were invited in to spend
tho evening and on arriving, found to
their surprise, about twenty guests assembled, with a number of appropriate
presents for them, chief among which
were a very handsome combination
book case and writing desk, with an
elegant office lamp, a beautiful rocking chair and a medicine chest. These
were presented with appropriate remarks by tho donors, and as appropriately responded to by Mr. J. S. Holland. After this, all were seated at a
banquet that would have been good
enough for an original wedding. The
evening was then spent in listening to
vocal and instrumental music of a high
quality and social conversation which
continued until shortly after midnight.
Mr. Holland's friends assured him that
this party would have to serve also for
his birth day celebration which was
then only five days distant.
The rains of the past week have given away to beautiful weather both here
and la the wheat fields of the Palouse.
The tug Kaslo, Captain Angus Cameron, towed in two barges from Bonner's Ferry, arriving here Sunday afternoon, loaded with new rolling stock
for the Kaslo & Slocan railway. The
stock was manufactured in St, Louis
and shipped over the Burlington and
Great Northern to Bonner's Ferry. It
consists of two coaches and fifteen flat
oars. Box coverings will be built here
for most of the flat cars, to convert
them into ore cars. Tho increase of
travel and freight shipments-on the K.
& S. and the early prospect of a still
greater increase, make the new stock
necessary. The cars, costing about
$",000, are of superior workmanship
and will reflect credit on both the company and the manufacturers.
The pauicky feeling which prevailed
here for a couple weeks is about over
and confidence is increasing with each
day, says the Sandon correspondent of
the Rossland Miner. More mines are
packing down ore and taking up supplies than ever before Now work Is
commencing on every hand, experienced men are taking advantage of the
prevailing conditions and getting hold
of new propositions. The prospects for
fall business are splendid."

received here today by Mrs. John W.

B. C, that the people are fleeing for
their lives from that town on account
of cholera. Sandon is situated on a
narrow gulch leading to Bear lake,
about 150 miles to the eaBt and north of
Rossland, The houses are built upon-
piles and posts over the small and sluggish stream which runs down the
gulch, the stream acting as the sewer
for the ontiro camp. With the subsidence of tho Bpring freshets and partial
drying up of the stream the serious
conditions began to create alarm and
life became almost unbearable. Doors
wero kept closed and all means possible
wore taken to lessen the evil, but to no
purpose. A short time ago cholera
broke out, gathering its victims at an:
alarming rate. Sandon is the center
of a rich silver-beariog country, and it
is looked upon as one of the most promising silver camps in the entire Rossland field. LaBt year a great rush of
miners and speculators made Sandon a
lively mining camp, and claims on the
narrow gulch sold for fabulous prices.
Now many of the richest claims have
been abandoned on account of the scarcity of miners. No estimate of the
number of deaths has been received."

An Interview with David M. Hyman
of Denver.
A. J. McLellan, manager and president of tho Kimberly mine, says that
the property is looking very well. A
rich ore stringer has been encountered
recently 50 feet below the surface in
the lower or No. 2 tunnel. Lumps of
solid galena ore me also found thickly
interspersed in the gangue. Develop*
ment work was begun on the Kimberly
last August and now consists of two
tunnels���upper and lower. No. 1 tunnel is in 120 feet and No. 2, 100 feet.
The ore in general runs about 65 ozs. of
silver and 75 per eent. lead. The property is 9$ miles from Kaslo and 5 miles
from tho K. & S. Ry. Manager McLellan has recently brought his family
to Kaslo. Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney, who was here last week, is also a
shareholder in the Kimberly.
A Pretty Wedding.
The First Presbyterian church at
Vancouver, B, C, was the scene of a
very pretty event on tho 2nd inst.,
when Wm. O. Robinson, of the firm of
Keenan & Robinson of this city, and
Miss Jessie Black of Vancouver were
united in marriage. The ceremony
was performed at 8:30 p. m. by Rev.
Wm. Meikle, pastor of the church, in
the presence of the relatives and
friends of the contracting parties. The
bride was supported by her sister Miss
Ellen, while the groom was attended
by his brother David. After the congratulations and the usual accompaniment of showers of rice, the young
couple drove to the residence of Walter
Black, father of the bride. The presents were costly and numerous. Mr.
and Mrs. Robinson left Vancouver on
Thursday arriving in this city Saturday last where they will in future reside. The News extends its bearty

him, he is going to havo some of that

inspection of his Kootenay properties.
He has visited his St. Eugene property
near Fort Steele, tho Keystone in the
Yahk, and after returning from his En-
prise visit will inspect the Standard in
tho Coeur d'Alenes, in which he has
large interests. Mr. Hyman is also one
of the leading mine owners of Colorado,
intrrmitii.iiiii iiiiiii-t.-itiisiii Coming,
Mr. Hyman has recently returned
from Europe and was asked about the
outlook for international bimetallism, '
"When I was in England a short
time age," said he, "single gold standard advocates as well as bimetal'iists
admitted that the closing of the Indian
mints against silver was a great mistake. England will have to do something for India, and that something
looks very much as if it would have to.
be the re-opening of the Indian mints.
This will bo a greater step toward the
restoration of silver than England's
participation in an international monetary coMerence, although that step also
is not unlikely now."
Further KvHIciicen of Silver Manipulation.
Beiug asked if ho could explain tho
rise this week in silver, Mr. Hyman
. "I attribute it to something under
cover as yet in India. A short time
ago the Bank of England posted notices
that it would sell no more council bills
for 10 weeks. Council bills are a medium of exchange between the home and
Indian governments, and the Bank of
England had been in the habit of offering them every week. On that, silver dropped to 51 1-4. Two days after
that, government interests went into
the market with an announcement that
they would buy $5,000,000 worth of silver to ship to India. About the same
time it was announced by English papers that there was a shortage of silver
in'India, and they would have to have
it. At the timo ol tho suspension of
council bills, English papers said financial interests would try to oxport gold
to India, and put that country on u gold
baBis. But it is the belief of well informed persons that it would be impossible to do that, on account of the
nativos' strong prejudices in favor of
silver. Silver is the only money thoy
knew anything about. A mutiny is
now in progress in that country, arising from the government's well-directed efforts for the suppression of the
plague. Still these sanitary stops infringe upon the habits and traditions
of tho people, and they aro in rebellion.
Now, if England attempts further to
interfere with tho prejudices of tlio
people, by destroying or discrediting
thoir money, she will have very serious trouble on her hands. For tho
present however tho government must
have silver for the payment of its
soldiers and the oxpensos of the campaign against tho natives, It looks us
If gold would not do, and that England
will be forced to that conviction."

Fifty Years Ago Brlsham Younsr, the
Mormon Prophet, Led His People
Into the "Promised Land" nnd Laid
the Foundation of a State.
Found ins n State.
The people of the State of Utah recently completed their big celebration
of the semi-centennial anniversary of
the arrival of Brigham Young and his
band of 1,100 pioneers iu the valley of
the Great Salt Lake. Almost a full
week was required to fittingly observe
the great etnpire-bulldlng work of Brlg-
liiun Young.
It was on July 24, 1847, that the pioneers emerged from the rugged defile
now known us Emigration Canyon and
faced a broad aud sunny valley, which
eloped gently to the shores of :m inland sea. On the east, the Wasatch
���Mountains, and on the south .'ind west
the Oquirrh range made grim walls
about the desert. Wheu the pilgrims
Iimi proceeded a little further they saw
ii large fresh lake a few miles to the
south, emptying its surplus waters into
the Inland sea through it slender river.
These odd conditions suggested a striking comparison to Brigham Young, who
felt that he was a Moses lending a new
tribe of Israel to a new promised hind.
The fresh lake was- the sea of Tiberias,
the suit one the Dead Sea, tlio river
was, of course, the Jordan, This, then,
was the new Palestine; and here the
leader and his followers would build n
new Jerusalem. Advancing n few miles
Into tbe valley, and halting near the
bunks of a roaring brook, Brigham
Young Struck his stuff upon the ground
of its resources In the future, the broad
foundation of its economic life is in its
Irrigated soil. There nre some remarkable facts to be recorded about Its 19,-
810 Carma. In the lirst place, 17,(184 of
them nre absolutely free of all Incumbrance. The average size of these
farms Is twenty-seven acres, but as
some large ranches are Included In this
estimate, the figure given for the average Is rather too high. The typical
farms range from three to twenty acres
the people, nnd Is usually more vigor
ously defended by the women than by
the men. There nre occasional arrests
under the Edmunds-Tucker law, but
there seems m> reason to doubt Ihe
good faith of the church Ln discountenancing the practice.
The older generation of Mormons
rule the church, but tlie younger generation rule'the State. The Governor,
the two Senators and one uopre��entn-
tive are natives nnd of Mormon parentage, though Senator Rawlins is snid to
be nn a postal e. Contrary to general expectations, this fact has not deprived
nilK.IIAM   YOUNfl.
nnd exclaimed: "Here we will rear our
temple in holiness to the Lord!"
The small party of emigrants who
ended their tiresome anil dangerous pilgrimage in the Utah desert fifty years
ago gave but the slightest promise of
founding an enduring State. They
bad come lo un arid laud, and possessed
neither canals nor the slighest knowl-
���the smallest of any State In the
Union. They are universally devoted
to diversified agriculture, nnd thus render their unmortgaged proprietors absolutely self-sustaining.
In another Important respect these
farms differ from those elsewhere.
Their owners do not live, ns a rule,
upon the farm acreage, but Lu villages
or home centers. These are located tit
central points In bodies of 5,000 to 10,-
000 acres. The farmers have their
homes ou acre lots in these villages,
getting from Mils small area many of
the things they consume, nnd having
the social advantages of town life to a
Considerable degree. The church Is
also the dance hall, and in tlie remotest
hamlet there Is a Sunday night dance
led by the bishop. These social arrangements have contributed much to
the contentment of the forming population. There hits been less tuinptn-
tlon for the boys and girls to leave the
soil and go to the large towns than
elsewhere. The people live under such
conditions that neither panics, strikes
nor wars rouhl seriously menace their
three menls n dny.
The Mormons are admittedly the
founders of irrigation among Anglo-
Saxons. Until they made their lirst
rude canal from City Creek on thnt
July dny. in 1847. men of their race had
never dealt seriously with this indus-
liitn of strong supiiort among the members of the church, not even wlieu he
vigorously attacked tho leaders for
"using the lively of heaven to serve the
devil iu," ns he once did lu the bent of
the campaign, The first Representative
chosen to Congress, C. E. Allen, hnd
been for yenrs a powerful nud uncompromising opponent of the church. Hut
he was elected with the aid of Mormon
votes. The twelve apostles are divided
between the two great parties. The
division which has come after forty
yenrs of political solidarity appears to
Ik; genuine, and the people carry on
their discussions with the proverbial
zeal of new converts.
While the Mormons nre domlnnnt In
Utah, nnd are likely to bo for a long
time in the future, the gentiles exert
a powerful Influence. They have made
an indelible Impression upon the institutions of the new State. Chief among
their works are Ihe splendid schools
and city buildings and modern public

Patient Endurance.
Jinny think patient endurance Is n
virtue thnt outweighs nil others In value.  There never wns a greater error.
Endurance is often so contemptible
ns to ruiik wiith cowardice. Evil Is
the enemy of progress in manners and
morals. The endurance which tolerates
evil ls a defect worthy of the strongest
effort to overcome It.
It takes courage, time, patience, faith
to take a stand ami make n fight
against evil; whether the evil is threatening the nation's prosperity or Individual rights and comforts.
We have In all communities laws

of life and property, but of comfort, of
health, of morals.
The laws are for the whole community, for all ages anil each sex. They
nre constantly violated. Why? Because
endurance, not in the guise of virtue,
but In Its common overy-dny garb of
weakness. Indifference and laziness,
permits these violations, refusing to
sw tho moral degradation that ensues.
Righteous wrath that would express
Itself openly would put down many
evils lu their llrst stages, which, endured, create nud strengthen themselves and allied evils, compelling the
expenditure of men, mono; and years
of time to overcome.

Emily's parents were willing to risk
any danger or peril to save the little
The doctor told them what a fearful
risk it would be. The child might die
under the operation. The operation
might possibly be of no benefit to her
nml on the other hand the olinnoes
were greatly In favor of her brain
growing to Us normal size. The skull
lifted, the Imprisoned brnln might grow
nnd expand until It reached the size
that an adult's brain should be.
After the Woodruffs hud thoroughly
considered the matter, they decided to
take the chanced nnd have tlie Opera-
tion performed. A day was appointed
nud little Emily wns carried down to
1 St. Joseph's Infirmary by her father.
I They out off the locks, shaved her head
| closely and then put her under the Influence of chloroform. It was a delicate operation which the doctors then
performed. Ait the temple they cot
into the skull nnd on either sl(U> they
cut out of the skull a round piece nbout
the size of a ndckel. Beginning at these
openings at tho temple they cut the
skull open, running back to a point at
the very top of the head. The cut was
eleven Inches long and formed a perfect V, with the sharp points at the
crown of the head and the other points
at the two temples. The ekull was
lifted slightly and after all the necessary surgical work the wound was
bandaged up. The little girl was left
in her bed and the next morning when
the physicians called was playing with
hex doll, all unconscious of the fearful
opening In her head.
After ten days at the Infirmary she
was sufficiently recovered to be taken
home. She showed no signs of the terrible ordeal except an Increased nervousness. Her parents declare she is
Improving every day and they have
great hopes of ber mind growing Into
normal proportions. The doctors say
that Improvement must be slow, that
growth will be a gradual process, and
tl wttl be six months at least before
any perceptible change for the better
can lie noted. Atlanta pnysicians hnve
beeu roused Into deep Interest over the
case, and the scientific world waits
with anxious scientific Interest.
Rev, Dr. Randall Recently Celebrated
His Ninetieth Birthday.
Rev. Dr. Dnnlel B. Randall of Portland, Me., who celebrated the ninetieth
anniversary of his birth the other day,
ls tbe oldest nnd most widely kiwwn
Methodist minister In Maine. For more

In a log cabin at Hnrdwlck, Vt., ln 1807.
He wns converted In 182G, joined the
Methodist Episcopal Church at once
and began to preach In 1827. In 1828

Randall joined the conference three
years after Its orgniilzntlon. and he has
seen every day of its growth In size and
Importance. His tall, spare form has

It Is doubtful Is another dumb animal
ever caused greater mischief than a
goose did recently In I.anesboro, N. Y.
That goose stole a dozen valuable articles and brought about the discharge
of a servant. Eor a long time the family of Mr. Albert Jenks has been missing Valuables, and charged their disappearance to Miss Annie Coognn, a
domestic. The girl was threatened with
arrest to make her confess nnd when
she protested her Innocence she was
discharged. As articles continued to
disappear the family was In a quandary. A pet goose had a l rick of knocking nt the door In quest of dnlntles. nnd
on being admitted would go all about
the house. One afternoon recently Mrs.
Jenks wns nmazed to see the goose tnko

and go outdoors. She followed nnd saw
It hide the timepiece In Its nest. Thus
the mystery of the missing articles was
explained. Among the dozen articles
