The Washington and Orego;i Slate I'r.-ss
Associations united in holding their annual conventions in Spokane last week.
There were in the city more than 200
visiting editors and publishers, and as
many of them were accompanied by members of their families, the total attendance was nearly 400. In the absence of
President Scobey of the Washington Association, First Vice President Brant of
Vancouver presided. President George ll.
Small of Baker City presided at the meeting of the Oregon Association The Oregon association selected Astoria as the
next place of meeting, und the Washington association will meet at Scuttle next
The associations were entertained by a
musicale for the ladies, trolley ride and
reception for all. At the reception in the
Auditorium Thursday evening, Mayor
Olmsted of Spokane welcomed the visitors, which wus responded to by J. A. C.
Brant of Vancouver, Wash., and 1). M, C.
Gault of Hillshoro, Or. A. P. Tugwoll of
Tacoma delivered thc oration and a poem,
written for the occasion by Mrs. Ella Hig-
ginson, was read. Historian Charles Prosch
reported that in Washington nine new
newspapers had been started during the
year, and four had died. There are about
250 papers now published in Washington.
Tlie E-ccuralon.
Friday was occupied by an excursion
on Coeur d'Alene lake and a sumptuous
luncheon in a grove on Coeur d'Alene
river. During the trip N. W. Durham, editor of the Spokesman-Review, made a
telling address on "Popular Misconceptions -\hout the Press," pointedly treating
of questions which confronted every
owner and publisher of a newspaper. Ho
The public has a notion that the editor
should know everything, but docs not
know Anything. Kvery newspaper man
knows much he is never given credit for
knowing. Of chief importance in his art
is the knack of knowing what not to
print. If the newspapers of Spokane should
publish some summer morning all the
shocking facts and secrets they had gathered in a single day, there would he trouble the next morning on the raging Spokane. There would be heard what Bnpi
Hart has styled the "petulant pop of the
Another mistaken notion is that Horace
Greeley was the only great American
journalist; that since his forceful hand
and great bruin ceased to direct the New
York Tribune, the newspaper field has suffered irreparable loss, If you will take the
pains to find and examine a copy of the
New York Tribune of 30 years ago, you
will bc impressed with the vast advance
made in the American daily newspapev
since Greeley died. The New York Tribune of 30 years ago would not stand up
with daily papers printed now in cities of
50,0110 population or less. The Tribune
was loosely edited, poky in its news service, annoyingly opinionated, and lacked
snap and enterprise. Horace was an able
man, and he wus smart. He knew when
to die.
Another popular delusion is that the
newspaper worker has an easy and pleasing task; that, like the gilded youth of
Athens, his only concern is to learn and
tell the truth. This popular conception is a long cry from the
truth. Tho work of writing for
and editing thc modern daily paper has
become a task of enormous detail. The
daily paper is put out under whip and
spur, and from one year's end to another
the whip is ever singing through the air
and the spur is always in motion. In peace
and ill war, in summer and winter, on
Sundays and holidays, the daily paper
must and does make its appearance with
all but unflagging regularity of the sun.
Trains may run slow and jump their
schedule entirely, the pastor may close
his church, the lawyer lock his olliee and
(*o fishing, thc judges tttke their long summer vacations, and the merchant may
close his store on Sundays and holidays,
but the vast machine which prints our
daily papers—half of blood and half of
steel, and all of driving impulse—must
yncver cease its grinding motion. When thc
morning paper is brought in before breakfast on tliese cool and fragrant summer
mornings, small heed the reader takes of
the little army that toiled through the
nighttime, working in close rooms and
Btraining nerve and eyesight beneath tho
electric light that the world's news might
lie gathered and weighed and Bitted, written out in correct form for the printer
and condensed so closely in clear-cut headlines that the hurried business man may
even read aB he runs to catch his car.
But the chief of all delusions is thc
almost settled conviction that the newspaper owes something to the town which
is not owed by other business enterprises.
You are struggling, all, against the crying injustice of that belief.
A Fourth of July celebration, let us
say, has been settled upon by the enterprising business men of the town. A band
•will bc wanted to provide the music. Its
members will expect to be paid. Lumber
will be needed for the platform and the
seats. The committee will figure on that
expense. Bunting will be required to
make a gay and patriotic scene. The
merchant will Bend in his bill for that.
The carpenters must be paid for putting
up the platform, and tlie teamster for
hauling water to the grounds. ■
"Now," will say the committee with
an air of satisfaction with itB labors, "it's
all arranged but the crowd. The local
paper must boom our glorious celebration, and that will bring the crowd."
Then this enterprising committee.which
in usually made up of business men who
will profit from the crowd gathered to
•hare  in  the  celebration,  calls  on   the
struggling editor and publisher to use his
types and presses, his paper and ink,, und
pay liis printer and pressman to boom
the celebration for the good of tlie town.
It seems not to occur to it that he is
subject to nil the multifarious items of
expense which enter into other lines of
business; that he has his capital invested,
'is giving his labor to his chosen calling,
and therefore ought to he paid for every
service performed for others uml the town.
Ho is expected to provide bis income iu
some mysterious way, put in a large part
of his time, and devote a great deal of his
resources to booming the town aud "d. uiu-
nting*' up business for the other business
houses in the place, Aud if he is not
cheerful about it, there are hints of a boycott, and a nitiriiiur for an opposition paper, and unless he yields to this pressure,
perhaps some inexperienced person will be
tempted to come in and start a second
paper in a town which could not give
decent support to one.
For tliese unsatisfactory conditions the
fraternity has itself to blame. You ean
not change human nature. It is pretty
much the same in every town. Free service from newspapers the public has had
so long that it has come to a belief thut
the town or the county has a proprietary
interest in them. It plays one paper
against another, and too often rival editors or publishers lend themselves with
eager spirit to the game, giving away
much of their valuable space, cutting
their subscription rates to a price whieh
hardly meets the bare cost of white paper,
and bidding down the public printing to
rates which arc preposterously low and
It is a part of our system of government tliat the people shall be advised of
the acts of tlieir officials. To that end
the ' various states have made wise provision for the publication of certain matters of pubiie interest. The compensation
is fixed by law. Usually it is fair and
reasonable, and when the newspaper performs the service contemplated by law,
it ought to receive the compensation
named by law; and would receive it if
editors and publishers would drop their
rivalries and regard each otlier as brothers
In a noble guild rather than as unyielding
If these gatherings of newspaper men
of the northwest shall serve no other purpose than the ultimate abolishment of
the ruinous practice of doing county' and
city printing for a tithe of thc just rates
fixed hy law, they will be worth many
times over all they have cost in time and
elTort. If the various papers represented
here today could have, during the coming
years, that which the law allows them for
honest service, the financial condition of
those here today would be tremendously
improved, and their noble calling take on
new dignity and power.

New York, Aug. 20.—A special dispatch
from Hong Kong says:
A serious insurrection has broken out
at Nadao in the interior of Hainan island. The American missionaries and native converts have sought refuge in safe
territory. On August 14 the rebels foughl
the soldiers, who used the American Presbyterian property as defenses and repelled
the attack.
Nadao is 90 miles from Hoisow, one of
the richest valleys in the island. Unless
the revolt is speedily suppressed the insurgents will be probably reinforced by
refugees from Kwang Si, where the officials are coping with the recent rebellion. Should it not be suppressed there
is an opportunity for French interference.
The French are using vigorous measures
to protect the native Christians near
Kwang Chow Wan, and are extending
their intluenee in southern China, which
at present is very disturbed.

It is slated tliat the Chinese minister
nt St. Petersburg has reported to his gov*
eminent that in his opinion the Chuie-e
question will precipitate u conflict between Great  Britain and Kusslu.
This state of affairs, he says, is brought
about by the British ambassador presenting a note lo St. Petersburg of sueh a
peremptory nature, demanding free access
of enterprise in regions where Hussian iniiuence is supposed to predominate, that
Count Muruviell ean not accept it.
'ihe Chinese minister expects that a

London, Aug. 29.—The Manila correspondent of tlie Times says:

a final settlement. Aguinaldo proposes
to remove his headquarters immediately
to the town of Munolos, province of Bal-
acan, 20 miles north of Manila, There he
will shortly assemble a confess chosen

sirategic point, covering a rice and tobacco district, beside the route to Filacna-
bato, where the Spaniards were formerly
obliged to mnke a treaty by which they
purchased a suspension of hostilities.
The movement was probably necessary,
partly because Apulnaldo was fast losing
his influence in the province of Cavite,
where the fnsurgt-uts evidently expected
to bo permitted to occupy Manila conjointly with the Americans. Considerable dissatisfaction Is apparent among the
insurgent troops and a frank expression

An Investigation into the facts concerning the dismissal of the Turner

The request of Alderman O'Connor

that he has legal advice to the effect
that it can be done, while there are
others who are equally as positive
that it can not be done. In tho meantime the question comes up what use

How About This?
There still remains unpaid between
$500 and $600 in bills for material and
labor in building the bridge across Kettle river at First street this spring.
One thousand dollars was contributed
by residents of this place and vicinity
and an additional Si,000 by the government. L. A. Manly, who had charge of
the collecting of subscriptions and pay-
ment of bills, for a long time staved tbe
bills off by claiming that the money contributed by the government had never
bee* paid.
It has been definitely ascertained that
all of this money, excepting about
)ti;o, which was held back to insure the
filling in of the piers witb rock,
was turned over to him at the
time the bridge was completed and
Mr. Manly now claims that it bas a|l been
spent and several hundred dollars out of
his own pocket besides, but produces
nothing better than his own word to
substantiate his claim. Meanwhile tbe
unlucky creditors are out their money
and attempts are being made to saddle
the unpaid bills onto tbe city.
Charges of crooked work in connection wjtb the manner that gentleman
handled the building of the bridge have
been freely made and in justice to both
the government and Mr. Manly, Leonard
Norris, the government agent, should
make an investigation at once and get
the matter straightened out.

Council Meeting Took More
Than Usual Time.
Aod Railroaded Through Some Pet
Schemes, Then Coppered Them
and  Adjourned.
The city council met in regular session last Friday evening with all the
aldermen present, and in tbe absence of
Mayor Davis Alderman O'Connor assisted by Alderman Jones moved Alderman
Manly to tCe cbair.
The minutes of the meeting of the
19th of August were read and on motion
of Alderman O'Connor, seconded by
Alderman Jones were adopted.
The minutes of the special meeting
were then read and on motion of Alderman O'Connor seconded by Alderman
Knight were ordered approved.
On motion of Alderman McCallum
seconded by Alderman O'Connor tbe
chairman of the water and light committee was authorized to sign the application blank for registering the electric
light plant and the clerk to issue a
warrant for the government fee of $10.
A number of small bills was presented
and referred to the finance commute e
for Investigation.
Alderman O'Connor reported that the
electric light plant had been compelled
to close down a part of one nigbt on account ot the breaking of a belt and moved that the water And light committee
be instructed to purchase a new one at
once.   This motion was carried.
City Clerk Johnson was instructed, on
motion of Alderman McCallum to confer with the city treasurer in reference
toW.K. C. Manly's taxes and have the
matter adjusted, there having been a
double assessment.
The proposition of adding four feet to
the width ot tbe sidewalk on tbe west
side of Riverside avenue from the White
House to Main street, the city to pay
half tbe cost, was the next matter under
•consideration and after considerable
-discussion was referred to the board of
public works to investigate and report
at thc next regular meeting of the council.
On motion of Alderman Knight seconded by Alderman Jones, the city
clerk was instructed to notify the city
treasurer, in writing, toiold all money
paid by the Grand Forks Townsite
company and Chas. Cumings on account of taxes and apply the same on
,the warrants issued by the oity, in payment for labor performed in filling in
the sloughs.
Contractor Cumings rewwated a copy
of the contract existing between himself
and tbe city for filling in the Bridge
Street and Riverside avenue sloughs.
On motion of Alderman Jones, the clerk
was instructed to procure a copy of the
rame from City Solicitor Sutton for Mr.
tCumings. .
Tbe question of raising the sidewalk
-on the east side of Riverside to the
grade established by Mr. Thomas for
the filling in of the sloughs, was then
taken up for consideration and after a
lengthy discussion the matter was settled by Alderman Jones moving that the
city employ some one to do the work
under tbe direction of Alderman O'Connor.   Carried.
The suspension of City Treasurer Hay-
ward, by tbe mayor, was next taken up.
Alderman McCallum stated that at the
last m eeting he had made a motion to
the effect tbat tbe treasurer stand suspended until he apologized to His Worship, the mayor, but on investigation be
had found that It was unconstitutional
and therefore ineffective. The statement was made that tbe mayor and
treasurer, while they had not got together yet were in a fair way to settle
up their differences and as tbere were a
great many people who wanted to pay
their taxes before the first of September, the time set for allowing a rebate,
some steps should be taken to have the
treasurer reinstated at once.
Alderman Jones moved that the treasurer be reinstated and that the clerk be
instructed to inform him of tbe action of
the council in writing. This motion was
seconded by Alderman' O'Connor and
was carried.
The question of fuel for the water »nd
light plant was brought up by Clerk
Johnson, wbo stated that there was only
about 75 cords of wood left, and that in
.order to have a supply of good seasoned wood on hand it would be necessary
to take some steps to procure some at
Moved by Alderman Jones seconded
by Alderman O'Connor, tbat the clerk
be instructed to advertise for tenders,
for delivery at the power house, of 100
cords ot 4-foot wood, fir and tamarack,
bids to be received until tbe iotb day of
September next.   Carried,
The pet scheme of Alderman McCallum, of forcing the city to construct a
sidewalk between Upper and bower
Grand Forks was sprung by that gentleman, be seeing a possible chance to
railway it through the council, the
mayor being absent, Alderman Manly
being in the cbair, Alderman White having been excused and leaving Jones
tbe only one opposed to the scheme
Alderman McCallum argued tbat according to tbe assessment roll, the Van
Ness addition was entitled to 81,500 of
the $15,000 borrowed and that they were
entitled U sidewalk connections. Aldermen O'Connor and Knight, were of tbe
opinion that Peter had the thing
sized up about. right, while Alderman
Manly, who was presiding during the
absence of the mayor and was therefor
in a position that he did not have to go
record, looked wise and'said nothing,
but shewed that he vas strictly against
the proposition.
Alderman Knight moved that tenders
be called for the building of a four foot
sidewalk on Bridge street to the top of
the grade in Van Ness addition, tbe
same to be done out of the {15,000 to be
borrowed by the city. Alderman O'Connor seconded tbe motion, which was
modified en the suggestion of Alderman Jones, to read that instead of calling lor tenders, thc matter of letting the contract be referred to the
board of public works for investigation
as to cost, with instructions to report the
same back to the council before tendete
were called for,
The question of employing Alderman
(3'Connoi* to suoerlntend the fijling in pf
the slougbs at a salary of $3 50 a day
wus brought before the council by Alderman McCallum.
This question caused quite e discussion
during which a point of law was raised
as to whether or not the council had authority to employ one of its own number to superintend a contract.
Alderman O'Connor stated tbat he
bad had tbe matter looked up by an attorney a*-d that it was perfectly legal
and could be done. After canvassing
the situation pretty thoroughly it was
decided that Alderman O'Connor look
after the work, and the matter of compensation be left to the future action of
the council, it being agreed that the
council bad a right to compensate him
for his services by voting him a salary
as an alderman.
On motion of Alderman Knight the
clerk was instructed to write the
city clerk of Kosslan-1 relative to procuring a copy of the last city bond issued by the city of Rossland.
Alderman McCallum moved tbat tbe
board of public works bave a petition
drawn up, addressed to the commissioner of lands and works, praying that the
bridge across the main Kettle river, on
First street, be raised three feet and that
a number of other improvements be
made in it for protection against high
water, Tb's motion was seconded by
Alderman Jones and was carried.
On motion of Alderman Knight the
council adjourned,
In conversation with Alderman Jones
after the council meeting was over tbat
gentleman slated that be was opposed
to the building of the sidewalk because
it was an injustice to tbe residents of
tbe lower town to be compelled to pay
taxes for tbe building of a sidewalk between the two places, a distance of
nearly a mile, in tbe face of the fact that
every foot of sidewalk so far built in
Grand Forks bad been done by tbe
property owners, without cost to the
city. If those who owned property
along the proposed line of tbe walk
wanted a sidewalk they had a perfect
right to build it. That was their privilege. But for the city to contribute
$1,200 or $1,500 for the construction of a
side walk, a distance of a mile, for the
sole accommodation of Alderman McCallum and a half dozen people who
had the misfortune to reside outside of
Ihe city limits, he considered a rank injustice and would fight it to the bitter
That gentleman also said that he was
opposed to the proposition of employing Alderman O'Conner on the ground
that the work was not sufficient to keep
a person employed an hour or two a day,
besides it would look as if all the aldermen were trying to get a finger in the "city
pie." Both McCallum and Knight had
teams working on the grade and to pul
O'Connor in as superintendent of the
works on a salary would be the means
of placing the council in a position
where it would  be open   to   censure.
The Name   of  the New  Town  to
Laid Out at Christina  Lake.
Mr. H. L. Moody of Spokane was in
tbe city last Saturday and mado arrangements with Provincial Land Surveyor
Wollaslon for the surveying of a town-
site for bim on his land situated at the
foot of Christina lake of which he bas
640 acres. At first only forty acres will
be platted, which will make about 250
lots. Tbe first tier of lots fronting on
tbe lake will be 30x120 feet and tbe balance are to be 50x120 feet. The sale of
the lots will be commenced as soon as
the work of surveying and platting is
completed which will be as soon as Mr.
Wollaston can do the work.
As an incentative tq parties to erect
bouses there Mr. Moody will give a lot
free to apy person who will construct a
house that will cost over $300 within
thirty days from tbe time of signing the
Mr. Moody left in the afternoon for
Loon Lake wbere,he went for the put-
pose of buying the naptha launch owned by li. C. Corbin una at present used
as a pleasure boat at lhat popular resort. Besides tbe launch be also expects to buy a number of small row
boats wbich be will put on tbe lake at
once. On his return, wbich will be in
about ten days it is bis intention to immediately commence the erection of a
large hotel and livery barn for the accommodation of those who may desire
to spend a few days at the lake, and enjoy the hunting and fishing to be found
there at nearly all seasons of the year.
Heretofore there bas been no accommodation for either man or beast at the
lake and for tbat reason but few go
there for a day's sport.
Tbe argument jn favor of this point as
a place fpr a good town is, that besides
being a desirable summer resort, it iB
situated at the foot ot the lake which is
surrounded by a large and rich mineral
belt, tbe output of which is bound to
come to transportation through force of
circumstances by a system of barges
and steamboats, and being the only
available site at the foot of the lake tor
the building of docks and wharves the
railway naturally must come to it in order to get the mineral to haul to market.
Mr. Moody is an old time real estate
man from Spokane and while he has
very little to say relative to the prospects of bis proposed town it is a safe
proposition to predict from the manner
which he is taking hold of it tbat he is
fully satisfied there is something in it
for himself aod those wbo pin their faith
on bis judgment. Already a number ot
lots have been spoken for and when the
opening sale day comes, notice of wbich
will be given later, you may look for a
general rush for property in the new
town of Moodyville.

Falling Tree Brings Death to Gust Erlcsoo
Near Graham's Ferry.
A fatal accident occurred about 6
o'clock last Tuesday evening at the rail,
way camp about a mile this side of Graham's ferry, by which Gust Ericson lost
his life, As near as can be learned
Ericson and a companion were sawing
down a large tree on tbe side of tbe
mountain, he being on the lower end of
the saw. When the tree began to fall
instead of stepping to one side as an ex-
Eerienced woodsman would naturally
ave done, he started to run down the
bank to get away from the falling tree
and before be could get clear was struck
and pinned to the ground.
Those wbo witnessed the accident
naturally supposed that he was instantly
killed, but an investigation showed that
be was alive and conscious. He was
removed and a messenger sent to this
city for Dr. Smith, wbo responded with
all possible haste but on bis arrival
found the unfortunate man dead, he
having lived only about an hour.
Dr. Smith states that there were no
bones broken or any outward appearance of fracture, and be is of the opinion
that death was caused by a shock to the
nervous systerm or an internal hemor-
Ericson came to the camp the night
before in search of work and comparatively nothing is known of him, except*
ing tnat he claimed to have just come
over ftom Sweden and could not speak
English. He was buried at Cascade
Oity Wednesday afternoon by his countrymen, of whom there are quite a number in tbat vicinity at tbe present tinjc,
Mr. James McGregor of Nanamio,
government inspector of mines for the
province, was an arrival on last Saturday evening's stage from Bossburg, on
his way to Greenwood camp, to inspect
the Ironsides mine in wbich two fatal
accidents have occured within the past
month; be having been telegraphed for
by Gold Commissioner Lambly, of Osoyoos, who happened to be in Greenwood
at tbe time tbe last accident occurred
and was present at tbe coroner's inquest
held over the body of Mr. McCormick.
Mr. McGregor visited the mine on
Sunday and returned to the Forks Monday evening. Owing to the amount of
water in the mine he was unable to
make as careful an investigation of the
property as he would have liked to, but
stated tbat as far as he was able lo judge
everything was in a very satisfaciory
condition and that in bis opinion tbe recent accidents were due mote to tbe
carelessness of the victims themselves
tban to any defects in Ihe machinery of
the mine.
This was Mr, McGregoi'a first visit to
the mines of this section and he expressed great surprise at the vast amount of
mineral to be tound in the Kootenay's
and Boundary country and said he could
now readily realize that the people of
tbe coast had no idea of the vast wealth
to be found in tbis part of the province,
and tbe manner in which tbis country
had been developed during the past few
years. He says that he found the mines
in the Slocan and Rossland districts in
a very creditable condition and with but
a few exceptions had found no cause for
Mr. McGregor bad intended to bave
returned home by the way of Pentieton,
but was compelled to turn back on account of sickness, having been taken ill
on bis way in from Bossburg. For the
last four years he has represented Nanamio in the provincial legislature, but
was defeated by the cyclone that swept
the country on tbe ninth of July. He is
thoroughly posted on mines and is a
gentleman in every way fitted to fill the
position be occupies. During bis stay
here be enjoyed the excitement of a rattle snake hunt and succeedeJ in capturing fourteen rattles whicb he will keep
as a trophy of bis first visit to the Boundary country.
Looking Over tbe Field.
D. D. Mann, of the firm of Mann, Foley Bros, and Larsen, who have the contract for building the C. P. R. extension
through this district from Robson to
Midway, was in tbe city tbis week on a
tour of inspection over the proposed
line of the road. He was accompanied
by Hugh Sutherland, of Winnipeg, and
tbey will visit tbe Brooklyn and Stem-
winder mines in Greenwood camp, of
which Mr. Mann is one of tbe principal
Mr. Sutherland was in the district
some time since lo visit the property
and his report was so favorable that Mr.
Mann has now come himself to take a
look at It.
Work is being rapidly pushed ahead
at both mines and by the advent of
railway transportation they will be in a
position to ship ore in vast quantities.
Mr. Mann seemed well pleased witb
what he had seen of this section and tbe
fact that be has invested bis money in
mining property here is ample proof of
his faith in the future of the district,
mil Woik the Home Run.
John Ashfield and A. £1. Rogers left
the city Thursday afternoon with a pack
outfit, bound for Hardy mountain wbere
they will put in the next few weeks in
doing development woik on their group
ot four claims, about four or five miles
from town.
This group consisting of the Home Run
Crescent, North Star and Welcome was
purchased about two years ago by the
present owners, who have so far done
nothing but surface work.
So well pleased are they, however,
with tbe showing made that it is their
intention to at once begin the sinking of
a shaft wbich they will continue until
the value and extent of tbe ore body .is
fully proven.
The ore is a copper pyrite in quartz
gangue with considerable peacock copper aud carrying excellent gold values.
A big lead is shown up in the surface
workings, which, should it continue
equally good with depth will insure tbe
Home Run group's being among tbe big
mines of the district.
Strike on the Riverside.
Messrs. Hunltey and Bentley have
made a strike of considerable magnitude on their property, tbe Rive rside,
about five miles up the east side of the
North Fork from this city.
Two men have been at work on the
claim for some time past, and recently
uncovered a lead of fine looking ore
near the surface which gives every indication of being a very high grade.
A shaft is now being sunk, the whole
bottom of which is in first-class ore and
there is now on tbe dump a considerable
amount of the same rock. The ore is a
bluish grey quartz with good looking
copper pyrites and will no doubt run
well in gold, although no assays have
yet been made.
Tbe owners intend doing considerable
work wjtb a view of showing tbe prop
erty up more thoroughly, as they feel
confident lhat they have the making of
a mine.
Its Last Dividend.
On August 26 the Cariboo M. M. & S.
Company declared its twentieth dividend of two cents per share or $16,000
payable at Spokane. This makes a total of almost $237,000 wbich the company has paid in dividends and will be
the last paid by it, as a Canadian company is being organized to take over the
mine. Tbe Cariboo is one of. if not the
oldest mine in this section and bas an
enormous amount of ore in sight, beside
just being equipped with a large amount
of additional machinery lately, so, as
ihe new company has ample capital at
its command to operate the property on
a large scale we may expect to see more
and larger dividends than ever before
paid by this great mine.
Canadians Visiting Their Boundary Creek
"A notable party of eastern Canadian
capitalists arrived in the city Saturday
trom the Boundary Creek country,
wbere they bave been inspecting pron-
erties in which thev are interested.
The gentlemen were F. H. C. Minor of
Grandby, Quebec, president of the
Grandby Rubber Company—he is accompanied by bis wife and daughter;
W. H. Robinson, manager of the Eastern Township National Bank of Quebec, and A. C. Flamerfelt ol Victoria,
western manager of the Grandby Rub.
ber company. They are interested with
Jay P. Graves in a number of properties
in Boundary Creek district, the most
prominent of wbich are the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill in Greenwood

A   Little  Piece   of   Ancient
Rained At Lst.
Last Tuesday afternoon the long looked for rain commenced jo pour down
about 5 o'clock and continued off and on
throughout the night anl then ceased
until Wednesday evenilg about dark
when it began to pour down without intermission and continued throughout
the night. Tbe rain wis more than
welcome as it cleared tlioatmosphere of
the dense smoke that has been hanging
over the valley for the pit ten days or
two weeks and will have i tendency to
make this section more sealthy tban it
has been during the lonf heated spell.
It bas put out tne forest free that have
been destroying the timber all over the
country. There will be l spell of good
weather for several weete between now
and the time winter sets In, but no more
intensely hot weather sirtilar to that experienced since tbe midde ot July,

And it came to pass in those days tbat
tbe hearts of a part of the people
of the Gateway City of the land of
Beesee swelled big within them and
they said among themselves:
Lo, and behold! Wc are indeed a
mighty people whose great and va. t*
ness is measured only by our our own
imaginations. Why should we bave
but one town to dwell in? It is more
mete we should dwell apart from our
brethren whose hearts are not as big as
So the people builded them two towns
un upper and lower, and the people of
the two towns dwelt together in great
harmony and affection even as two dogs
with but one bone.
And the people of lower town set up
tbe tribe of Council to rule over them
and make laws for tbem, but the people
of tbe upper town would not be ruled
for they said: "We will run our own
Wise and mighty men were they, this
tribe of Council, and in tbe beginning
they ruled well and strong.
They caused tbe night to be made as
the day ana tbe rivers they harnessed
and brought into tbe houses. Sidewalks
encompassed the town, tbe streets were
made as of a great city, work was plenty
in the land and the people were well
and happy.
Now when the people of the upper
town saw these things they waxed ex
ceeding wroth and said among ihemsel
ves: "Why should these things be that
lhe lower town doth all for themselves
and nothing for us for are not our
hearts bigger than theirs?
But it came to pass that the tribe of
Council fell into evil ways and many
little things they did wbich were nol
light and just to the people they ruled
And in those days there was in tbe
tribe one who loved not the people of
the lower town, but whose heart
was in the upper town. A wise and
solemn man was be and be was called
throughout the land "Peter, the Owl.'
Now when he saw tbat the Council
had fallen into evil ways bis heart
shivered with joy and he went among
tbe tribe und said:
"An thou wilt favor my scheme thou
shalt have my vote to by so, and so."
And they said unto bim:   "Yea."
Then when the Council bad gathered
together he spoke unto them and said
"Lo it is not mete that we do everything
for ourselves and naught for others
Therefore   let us build   us  a   path of
DOards to tbe upper l»mn  tbi.t tl*,.y   rn:iy
shake the dust from tbeir feet and come
and dwell among us." Thus spoke
The Owl for he was wise and very sub
And the Council said: "Yea, it is
meat that we do this." And they ordered that a path of boards be built, of a
cubit's width, to go from the upper to
the lower town; and ol tbe funds of the
people of lower town payment was ordered made for building the path.
Then came various of the leaders of
the people unto lhe Council and said:
"The people pray you to do not this
thing." But they answered: "It shall
be done.'1
And again came others of the people
and said unto the Council: "Thou sbalt
not do this thing, for already is our city
so covered with tacks tbat we can hard
ly go abroad in the land,'1 But they
answered once again, "It shall be done.'
And tbey began to do the thing and
the tacks were more tban ever before
and one could scarce walk the streets
because of the tacks.
And when the people saw tbat tbe
Council did the thing despite their entreaties they waxed exceeding glad.
Joyous execrations filled tbe air and the
people tore their hair in extacy.
But tbe Council wot not of tbe people
but did their own pleasure.
And as the people saw the tacks increase so did their joy and gladness
grow; and they gathered together and
got for themselves Ion;; poles and went
it to the Council, even into the council
chamber, and they took them out and
carried them upon their shoulders, on
the poles tbey carried them, three times
about tbe city walls, with loud shouts
and singing ot songs; and when they
had finished they took them through the
waters of the river and so to their homes.
And when the Council bad again
gathered together they sat not down to
deliberate as was tbeir usual wont, but
spake among themselves, standing, and
"Verily, it seemeth to please the people entirely too great, that we do this
thing tbey pray us not. Mayhap it were
better that we consult more their wishes
and do not this thing, lest they become
even more affectionate with us."
So they did not the thing and the peo.
pie returned to their labors and were
Then came the boom and the streets
were filled with strangers, even so that
the tacks were taken away and the peo-
file could again go freely abroad in tbe
and; and the Gateway City of tbe land
of Beesee grew and prospered and be.
came a mighty city.
And when the people of tbe upper
town saw these things their hearts were
heavy and tbey waxed exceeding sore.

Mr. Manly stated that for some time

decided not to live together hereafter
and everything had been amicably settled between them. Beyond that he did

The ore is rich. .Some of it Is enormously rich. They can't assay the ore in

The I.e Hoi   Suits.
It had been thought Unit since llie
Turner faction in the Le Roi company
had won its Injunction fight against tlie
Peyton faction uml tlie liritish America
Corporation, the suit for damages in the
sum of $780,000 might bc dropped, Such
is not tlie cuse. The suit wus tiled in
tlie superior court. It will be remembered thut llie suit is for nn alleged de-
preciiition of llie price of thc stock held
by tlio plaintiffs wbich thoy allege is due
to the troubles from thc time the sale of
llie properly was lirst considered, up to
the time of w. A. Carlyle's appointment
as receiver.
Iu addition to the complaint an alii-
davit was filed by the plaintiffs setting
forth thnt tlie defendants lmve becn stun-
limned lo appear in Rossland Friday beforo the court of British Columbia in
tiie case involving the appointment of a
receiver for the property, and it is alleged thnt immediate examination of the
defendants is therefore necessary, Judge
Frather granted un order requiring tiie

Edward W. Parker's official report on

product last year was 1,047,882 short
tons, ns ngainst 1,543,445 in 18011, and
1,504,1113 in 18115, a gratifying increase.
The average price per ton rose from $1.47
in 181111 to $1.70. Montana ranks sixth
of tlie states in thc Union in production

Montana's coul mines, ns against 2335 in

The Klondike Output.
E. K. Leech, superintendent of the
U. S. mint at San Francisco, estimates that the gold output of the Klondike this yeur bus been only ubout $,*>,■
000,000. The receipts at the mint have
amounted to $1,750,000 since thc lirst
arrival of Yukon gold a few weeks ngo.
The receipts of the Scuttle assay office
have been about thc sume. The lurg-
est Bingle deposit nt the mint was $120,-
000. Mr. Leech estimates thut about
$250,000 in dust nnd nuggets has gone
oust and that there is about $1,000,000
more of this season's output yet to
reach this country. It is staled that
the dust brought out by thc North
American Trading and Trnnsportntion
Company wns sent enat and not included
in Mr. Leech's figures. This amount
might possibly reach $500,000.
Silver Key Given Out.
The Silver Key Mining Company, a
Washington concern, met at Spokane
this week and decided to disincorporate.
This is the company organized to work
the Silver Key on Granite creek, nenr
Libby, Mont. Thc location of the
Silver Key conflicted with the Silver
Crown milling claim, and the owners i.f
the latter effected a compromise with
the Silver Key people which resulted in
the action taken. This leaves the title
of the Silver Crown perfect and avoids
all litigation. The Silver Key people
received $1000 on the compromise.

Tho road will cost $000,000 and it is
said thut it will be of vast benefit to yn

PonCO is an old story today, yet still
a pretty one. In its history is a fairy tale
whieh has tlie merit of being true. In the
years when time went slower, a page
lounged through the leisures of Ferdinand's court. He was young, impudent
und abominably good-looking. A princess
smiled and beckoned. That was enough.
There and then lie was sent to another
world, to a better one, to the tropics
whieh Columbus had found, lie landed
at Borlquen, assisted with easy gallantry
i-n eliminating the natives, assisted also
In gathering the gold which they left.
Between the lines there arc two decades.
Meanwhile Borlquen had been christened
Puerto Rico. Incidentally the page had
grown old. Whether he regretted the
princess is problematical. That he missed
his good looks is clear. In an effort to
recover them he took a trip. The story
of Kl Dorado had not yet been told. But
another story, equally if not more se-1
ductivc, wus current then. It was to the
effect that somewhere nearby were the
fountains of eternal youth. In search of
those, waters he sailed. The land which ho
reached was so rich lu flow-bis that lie
called it Florida. But of the waters not
a trace. And yet, may it not be that the
legend of them typified fume? For it was
that whieh he did find. His name was
Ponce de Leon, and it was he who founded Ponce.
