A PYRITIC SMELTER
To Be Built in the Boundary
District.
Strike on the Early History���Knob
Hill a Wonder-Mayor Thomas
Hardy's Popularity.
Andrew Laidlaw of Spokane, who
!i".iielv acquired for eastern capitalists,
the Marguerite and Standard claims, is
spending a few days in town, and is
looking over sites suitable for the erection of a loder pyritic smelter, He bus
been offered big inducements lo build ill
1 irand Forks, hut is undecided as yet
where he will locate.
Mr. Laidlaw will take three or four
cars of pyritic ore to he tested hy the
same process before he fully decides
what to do, and if the results are satisfactory, he will begin the erection ol' the
smelter at once.
The Early History.
The new strike made recently in the
Early History group of claims has created considerable excitement iu Dead-
wood camp. The group is situated less
than one-half mile south of the Buckhorn mine. All the work done on the
four claims has been done on the Early
History. The owners of the property
tire Ola tofstad, 10. 0. Brown, Theo.
Witte,'John Anderson and Peter Johnson, all of Greenwood, and S. C. Richards of Grand Forks.
The ore is characteristic of South
Deadwood camp, being quarts, carrying
copper, gold, anil small values in silver,
and is found in un altered diorite.
C. 10. Brown has had the following assays made from his own sampling of the
lead, which is from eight to il) feet iu
width :
Gold. Cnpper. Silver. Total  Vttls.

The claims are being surveyed hy C.

Another claim joining this group is
the Excelsior, owned by J.  P.  Harlan.
The Karly History lead runs towards
this claim.
The Great Knot) Hill
The management of this claim in
(Ireenwood camp claim to bave blocked
out 1,400,000 tons of ore, which will average $8.87 per ton. They claim that
$5.16 will mine, ship and treat the
same This will leave it clear profit of
$3.22 per ton, which amounts to $4,508,-
000. This without doubt is the greatest
showing in British Columbia. .
What the Nelson Tribune Thinks.
"Mayor Hardy, of Greenwood, if he
could he induced to accept a nomination, could give Mackintosh cards and
fjiitdes and beat him in Rossland riding.
Mackintosh hasn't got sense enough to
spot a policeman unless be is in uniform."
Mayor Hardy is the most popular man
in tbe Boundary country, antl would
poll a big vote on this side of the mountain, and would doubtless make a good
showing on the Rossland side.
The Elkhorn Brewery.
During a visit  of a   Minku man  (on
business only) to the Elkhorn  brewery,
i one  day  this  week,  the  manager  was
j kind enough to show  him   through  the
establishment.
The cellar where the beer is  kept was
I visited lirst. In il were four 40-barrel
casks, two 50-barrel casks and a large
| storage   tank    of   76-barrel   capacity. |
! There was on hand about 4(H) barrels of
i beer to keep cool  the dry and  dusty
'mouths of the citizens of (ireenwood
and the surrounding mining camps.
This supply is kept at tlie proper temperature of  about 33  degrees   Fabren-
; heit hy a covering above the ceiling of
the room of 10 feet of  ice.
In the fermenting room were eight fermenting tanks, each of -10 barrels capacity.   This cellar is kept at a tempera-
I tare of 38 tlegrees Fahr.
A brew is made two or three times a
. week, the kettle having lit) barrels cupiic-
ty.    By starting at 7 in the morning the
1 beer is in the. cellar cool enough for fermenting at ���"> p. tu.
The greater part uf the beer is sold in
barrels, but there are bottling works ut-
i niched, which it is the intention of the
management to enlarge.
A new ice-house has been built,   holding 800 tons of   ice;  also  a   new  storehouse for malt.
The brewer in charge is Mr. R. Klaus-
��� man, who has had an experience extending over 25 years. He learned the
business in the old country, but before
coming to Greenwood was for six years
in Tacoma in charge of one of tlie largest breweries on the const.
Rotitiins-Geiidriin.
On Wednesday morning, at the Cath
olie church, Wesley O. Bobbins and
Mrs. Philomeiie Gendron were united in
marriage, Rev. Father Palmer officiating, C. It Raymond acted as best man
and Miss Velada Gendron attended the
bride. After the ceremony a sump-
tnus wedding breakfast was servedat the
BAERTEL'S    DEATH
Committed Suicide at Anaconda Saturday Night.
Drink Supposed to be the Cause���The
Deceased Had Been Married Only
a Short Time���Body Shipped East.
A sad tragedy occured at  Anaconda
on Saturday evening, when Hans Haer-
tel, manager of the Russell Hardware
Co., committed suicide by shooting.him-
self through the head with a 38-ealibre
Smith it Wesson revolver.
Deceased had not been working since
Thursday, and had been drinking considerably during Saturday, He went
home about six o'clock, but went out
shortly afterwards, procured a revolver
and returned. He went upstairs to his
room and called his wife. Upon her
going up, accompanied by her sister and
Mr. Robinson, he threatened to pull his
gun. They went downstairs. He went
back into the room and putting the pistol to his head shot, himself, death being
| Instantaneous. No inquest was held.
The body has been shipped to his parents in Milwaukee.
Encouraging Reports From Brown's Camp.
Max Kitntz was iu the city the other
day from Brown's creek, where has been
developing his group of claims, the Iron
King, Copper Queen ai.d Columbia.
He reports a very good showing being
made and says that he is confident the
properties will become mines with further development.
Considerable work has heen done on
the claims. On the Iron King be has a
tunnel in 65 feet on the ledge with no
sign of the wall, ami a shaft is down 40
feet in good mineral.
On the upper Copper Queen a tunnel
has been run in 20 feet, showing up a
good ledge, and on the Columbia he has
a shaft down 23 feet on the footwall and
a tunnel in 38 feet on the hanging wall.
The lead here is about 22!) feet wide on
the surface and has both walls well defined.
Assays from the group run well, and
average samples are said to go about $30
in gold and 4 per ceut copper. It is the
intention to do considerable work this
summer.���(irand Forks Gazette.
Summit Camp Property.
The Maple Leaf claim of the Rathmullen group is one of the best showing
mining properties in the partially developed stage'of the Boundary country.
Active development has been prosecuted
on the claim fur several months. It is
opened up to the 200-foot level, at which
depth there is a splendid body of ore in
sight.
On the 66-foot level a crosscut run to
the vein showed a body of very line  ore,

the B. C. mine, about 2,000 feet away.
At the lowej level the ore wos found
considerably increased, both to body
and values, and there is every indication that the property Is the making of a
mine. The company owns a group of 14
claims, the foremost of which are the

The energetic management of Winnl
peg's big annual industrial exhibition
are leaving nothing undone to increase
its attractiveness and insure its success.
A new feature will probably be added,
and one which will likely be permanent.
The project in question is a British Columbia exhibit of products peculiar and
indigenous to the Pacific province.
At a recent meeting of the British Columbia Lumber Manufacturers' association held in Vancouver, Mr F. VV. Heu-
hitch, general manager of the Winnipeg
industrial, appeared and outlined the
scheme. Mr. Heubach's proposition
was that a distinctive western exhibit
be made at tlie industrial, to be made
in a building erected entirely of British
Columbia native woods, which would in
itself form a display of the timber resources of the province. The interior
exhibit would consist of various samples
of British Columbia  manufactures and

government, it is understood has promised $1,000 towards the cost of erecting
the building, and the C. P. K.   promises

is also understood that the British Columbia government is willing to give
the project financial aid. Mr. Heubach
asked the lumber manufacturers to provide the materials for the building, and
this the association decided to do, provided the government paid a proportion
of the cost.

Owing to tlie generally depleted ranks ]
of the northwest police force, caused by
the large number of this line body of'
men who were allowed to join the Canadian contingents for South Africa, the
dominion government has decided to
commence recruiting at once. Recruiting stations have been opened at Halifax, Yarmouth and Sidney in Nova
Scotia, and at St. John, Fredericlon and !
Moncton in New Brunswick, and Char-
lottetown in P. E. I. Lieut.-Col. Morris, formerly inspector of the police,
will look after the recruiting. There
will be 125 selected from the maritime
provinces, and recruiting stations will
be opened in a few days in Quebec and
Ontario for 185 more, making 500 in all.
As soon as recruited the men will be
taken to Kegina for an instructional
course. The height of the recruits will
be 5 feet 8 inches, chest measurement
85 inches, and age between 22 and 40.

From the  proceedings at the liberal
j meeting on the evening of March  80th,
it would appear that the majority of the
(ireenwood liberals nre Martin men, but !
the    MixKit   behoves     them     to   be
liberals lirst and Mtirtinites afterwards.
We want a strong man to direct the policy   of tbe  province,  and  if a  majority of the liberals of the province in  convention   accept   Joseph   Martin  as the j
j leader of the party, he should hi: accepted by all.    hooking beyond  the  provincial crisis we want a united party lo uphold the   hands of  the   government   at

that   the liberals of  the  province will
abide by the choice  of  the  liberal  convention held at, Vancouver.

POLITICAL ITEMS,
.. tie is a rumor to the effect that the
Hoii. Joseph Martin will go to Delta for
election in the coming provincial contest.
Premier Martin, with his usual per-
specuity, has secured the services of
Mr. Banna, whose capacity for conducting successfully a funeral will stand
liiin in god stead when the campaign ia
over.���Nelson Economist.
The editorial writers on some of the
provincial papers are making consummate asses of themselves by scornfully
referring to the physical infirmities of
some of the. British Columbia cabinet
ollicers. If that is all the complaint
they have to prefer against them, the
people of the province would be wise in
endorsing Mr. Martin's choice of a cabinet-
beasts at Ephesus."
"Will the liberals take up his cause?"
'Yes; 1 am confident that practically
all of them will. Unless we do our
province is gone. Everything that
could be given away to railway and
other corporations, has heen given, and
for my part I do not see what is to become of the province unless Mr. Martin
succeeds and puts a check to tho wholesale saerilice of the interests of the province. There will be nothing worth giving away unless Martin triumphs."
Mr. Macdonnell remarked with satisfaction the growing tendency of Britisli
Columbia liberals to identify themselves
with Martin's cause.

The Britisli Weekly remarks: "Sir
Wilfred Laurier's tribute to the heroic
sons of Canada who haye fallen in the
war will he read witli universal admiration. Has the empire any wiser statesman, any nobler son, than the French-
Canadian premier? People are saying
this morning: "What honor will be
great enough for Sir Wilfred Laurier
when the war is over?"
Tlie Toronto Telegram believes British Columbia will have reason to thank
Lieutenant-Governor Mclrines "if ids
discharge of an unpleasant duty has no
other result than the substitution of
party government for the infernal system of persona! politics which has
cursed that province. Party govern
meat does not always produce good results, but it does enable the people to
get exactly the sort of government
which they deserve."
Premier Martin returned here yesterday after a visit to Kamloops, where he
wns enthusiastically received, says a
Vancouver dispatch of the 20th ult. As
a result of his visit, the announcement is
expected to follow that M. P. Gordon,
ex-mayor of Kamloops, and one of the
strongest, men of the interior, h;is accepted the portfolio of finance. Martin
is confident that the provincial convention of liberals, to be held in Vancouver
on April 15, will declare for party lines
and endorse his platform.    This  is  also
the view of the liberals of Vancouver,
As for Mr. Carter-Cotton, the conven-
itui of the so called "people's party,"
''linhrs interests, proved a failure,
a..,n it is almost pathetic to witness the
isolation of a gentleman, who but a few
short weeks ago was practically the need
of the government in Britisli Columbia,
Such are the mutations of time ill the far
west. Mr. Cotton tired Mr. Martin out
of ids cabinet and Mr. Martin is now
premier and Cotton of no more account
politically than a yellow dog���Kamloops

About Joe Martin.
Extract from interview of D. G. Mc-
donnell of Vancouver by a. Toronto Telegram correspondent;
"Yes, I have known Hon. Joseph
Martin intimately ever since he came
to I'TiV province," said Mr. Macdonnell.
"In have no hesitation in pronouncing
him one of the best and truest liberals
that Canada has yet produced."
"Will he be able to carry the province
iii the coming elections?" was naked.
"1 certainly think so," replied Mr.
Mncdoiinell. emphatically. "We have
no inan to be compared to him in force
and ability, and 1 know of no man we
could   Belect   to   successfully  fight the
Conservative candidates.
The following is a revised list of
straight party line conservatives who
have either consented to run in the coming election or have given the provincial
conservative executive to understand
Unit they will he ready to go into the
field if called upon. In Victoria Messrs.
Turner and Helmcken will stand for
candidates on the straight party ticket,

Union Principles,
In his annual report to the Knights of
Labor, General Master Workman Parsons, speaking of the issues on which
the workiiiginuii should take a stand,
said t hut. In he successful   the   following
principles should he strictly adhered to,
viz:
First.���Perfect organization, This
means that every wage worker must be
a member of a trades union.
Second���The adoption of a universal
j union label, snid label to appear  on   every article emanating from a  union   es
tablishmeut,
Third���A strict adherence to the laws
of unionism.
The workingivmn must fight his own
battles. The despotic power which tlie
aggregation of wealth can yield, and hy
which courts are influenced, legislatures
controlled and privileges purchased,
ought to teach the wage worker a lesson not to look for justice, or support
from any of the above mentioned sources. The outlook for organized labor
was never brighter than it is today.
Stand by your guns, gentlemen! Agitate, educate and boom the union label.
Just What's Weeded.

There is a boy in one of the Washington schools who, though he may never
he a great statesman and diplomat, may
be something equally great in some
other department of human endeavor,
says the Evening Star. He is studying
history at present, and a day or two
ago he made a record in the class. He
responded promptly when  called  upon.
"What do you know about the Clay-
ton-Bulwer treaty?" inquired the teacher.
"Nothing," responded the hoy with
superb confidence.
"Is that all?" said the teacher sarcastically.
"I couldn't, very well know any less
about, it, could 1?" he replied, as if he
was hurt by her insinuation,
Tlie teacher didn't like his manner.
"What do you mean, sir?" she asked
becoming SOlnwbat caloric under the
necklace.
"I mean that I know nothing at all
about it."
"That is no explanation sir."
"1 beg your pardon, miss; don't you
tell us that whatever we do we must do
thoroughly?"
"Of course, hut���
"Well, I couldn't see through it when
I looked it over, so I thought 1 would he
as thorough as I could and know nothing at all about il. I couldn't know
much less than nothing about it, could
1, miss?"
"Dm���er" she hesitated, you may
take your seat. I would like to see you
after school a few minutes."

A beggar in Madrid had from time
immemorial occupied a certain step at
the entrance lo a e rtnin church. To
this church there eaiiie every day a well-
to-do gentleman who was accustomed to
deposit a 10 eentavo piece in tlie waiting beggar's hat. lint il. happened that
the gentleman fell ill and for two weeks
was couflned to his lied. When lie resumed his attendance at daily worship,
he put his coin in tlie beggar's hid and
wns going on into the church. The beg
gar seized his coaitad. "Pardon me,
senor, caballero," he said, "hut have
you not a little account to settle wl-lb
me?"
"What?" nsked the gentlemen, "An
account    with  you?     What   do  you
liieau I"
"Why, yes," said the beggar. "You
are accustomed, are you not, to give me
10 centavos ns you cone in?"
"Well, have I not just given you the
coin?"
"All, but. you give me 10 centavos every day. Vou have not heen hare for
1-t days. Therefore yon owe me I III centavos."
"Get out!" answered the gentlemen.
"This is alms, not a salary, and I owe
you no alms when I atn absent."
Tne beggar drew himself up loftily
and Hung hack the 10 eentavo piece to
the gentleman. "Well, then," he exclaimed, "if you have no more honor
than that, you can go and get another
beggar!    I shall have no more to do witli
you I"

A Torontonian, who spent, a part of
last summer in England, tells an incident which sadly disturbed tlie religious
pence of a parisli in Penzance. A maiden lady of that town owned a parrot,
which iinehow acquired the disagreeable habit of observing at present intervals: ' I wish the old lady would die."
This annoyed the bird's owner, alio
spoke to her curate aluaitit. "1 think
we can rectify tbe 'matter," replied Ihe
good man. "1 also have a parrot, and he
is a righteous bird, having been brought
u]i in tlie way he should go. I will lend
you my parrot and I trust that his influence will reform that depraved bird
of yours." The curate's parrot was
placed in the same room with the wicked
one, and as soon as the two had become
accustomed to each other, the bad bird
remarked. "1 wish the oltl lady would
die." Whereupon the clergyman's
bird rolled up his eyes and in solemn
accents added : "We beseech Thee to
hear us, good Lord !" The story got out
in tlie parish, and for several Sundays
it was necessary to omit tlie litany at,
the church services.

noise and sundry ejaculations unlit for
publication, and going to the door he
found a respected member of the town
council floundering about in tlie mud-
hole.
"Good evening, sir. I am glad to see
you Btirring in this matter at last," and
so saying lie closed the door and left the
poor councilor to extricate himself as
best he could.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
f
THE CARIBOO MINE
Camp McKinney, Doubles Its
Number of Stamps.
Great Excitement at Sumtlum. Alaska.
���Siskiyou Copper Mines, in Oregon,
Change Hands.
At a recent meeting of the Cariboo McKinney Mining company, after careful
consideration it was resolved that it was
desirable to proceed to increase the
stamps from 20 to 40, ami it was consequently resolved that money enough
.-^-Jiild be reserved to iiccomplish this
purpose, and a dividend of one per cent
was declared for that quarter ending
April 80th, 1900. The new stumps will
he ordered within ten days, and should
be running within a couple of months.
The action of tlie directors s based on
the manager's report that, a three years'
supply of ore is blocked out, and that to
do justice to the property the capacity
of the mill should be doubled.
Latest news brought down from Alr.H-
ka, says the Seattle Times, announces
that tlie greatest excitement prevails
among Ihe miners there over ihe fabulously rich ore that has been exposed.
Tbe Statement has been made there
that the slope at the end of the 8,000-
foot tunnel on the old Slimdum Chief,
over 1,000 feet underground, will pay to
the   stockholders   of   the   consolidated
i ipany   over   $500,000   in dividends.
This has caused the greatest excitement
rver known iu Sumdiim, and when the
water pipnS broke down, the miners,
numbering over ISO, were laid off until
the water supply was again on, and the
money went fast and furious. Every
miner working on the Sumduin Chief
nnd the Bald Kagle knew that they had
steady employment in a dividend-paying
mine, and they took a three-days' celebration Unit would do credit to ihe
���arly days of Nevada City and other
rich mining camps. The citizens of
Suniiluni, and more particularly the
miners, know that the consolidated
mines arc very rich nnd already on a
dividend-paying basis.
A deal was recently consummated by
which the Siskiyou, Oregon, copper
mines,  known  as the Carlson-Walters
property, wns transferred to tl��' Siski
you Copper Co,, Ltd., for a consideration
of $700,000, partly cash and part stock
in the. company, which has a capital
stock of $1,200,000. The trustees of the
company are Ceo. 11. Casey. Alex Dick,
Hector McRae, C R-. Hamilton and (i.
\V Trefren. Tlie property has been !
producing profits for some lime, hut the
company will increase the facilities and
the revenue. Reports are to the effect
that it is a great copper mine.
The Nelson Tribune lias learned that
Messrs. Gooderhani and Blackstock
have started for London for the pur-
pose of acquiring the smelter. "It is I
generally conceded that in view of the
condition of tlie Hall Mines, Ltd., the
mission of tbe two Toronto capitalists
.'.vill be successful. This cannot but be
regarded
ed 1 the Canadian Pacific Railway corn-
pan's smelter at Trail, and the switching of It to Nelson for treatment would
probably work a genuine commencement in the recognition of Nelson as the
chief smelting point for southern Kootenay.
The Homestake mines of Dakota have
paid $875,000 in dividends last year.
They have paid since starting tlie sum
of 1^8,088,750, The Boston & Montana
distributed among the stockholders in
February $2,225,000, which makes $14,-
500,000 in dividends from tbe start. The
Anaconda company has paid $12,150,000
The entire dividends paid in February
by the mines of the United States and
Britsb Columbia was $5,500,889.
A Republic special to.the Spokesman
Review of the 28th ult. says: "Superintendent Wyatt of the Mountain Lion
statetl last evening that the mill was
working ill a satisfactory manner, and
that if nothing unusual occured the entire plant would be iu operation tomorrow. The saving of the free gold on the
plates continues to be satisfactory iu the
fullest degree, and the cyanide is doing
its work (ar iu excess of his expectations. As a whole the saving is all that
could be reasonably expected. The values are improving every day, and it is
now no longer a theory, but a fact, that
the treatment is a proper one for theore
of that mine.
Zala M. Ships.
A Republic special of March 24 says:
The Zala M. iu Bodiecaiup has started
to ship 200 tons to the Northport smelter. The ore is hauled to Midway,Udistance of 25 miles, then by the C. P. R.
to Northport. The ore being shipped
assays a little over $200 per ton. The
Zala M. company at the present time is
considering plans lorn plant on Toroda
creek lo treat the ore near the mine.
It ia not known what process they will
use.

Dear Sir: Alter consultation with

have made a daily inspection of the
train as it came in, from 10th March to
lilst March ult., in order to prevent, if
possible, the introduction of any case of
Bluailpox into tlie city. This only has
taken up an hour or two of my time
every day, and I ask tlie council respectfully to grant, me the compensation
of $;l per day for 10 days, in all $89,
By section 115 of the regulations of the
provincial board of health, I am directed
without further appointment to perform
this duty, but I prefered to act in this
case witli the concurrence of the acting
chief magistrate of the city.
As no further spread of the disease .is,
so far as I can learn, to he immediately
feared, I propose for the present at least
to discontinue this duty from today. I
Iriisl that my actions will meet with the
approbation of the council. 1 am, sir.
yours oh.'il.ently,    J. 10. Sciio.v, M. I). 11.

What Mr. Twiss Thinks.
Always a tirni believer iii  Kaslo,  Mr.
, W. .1. Tuiss hns returned from a   trip lo
the Boundary country mure than ever
prepared to -land by his lown.
"I am heller pleased with Kuslo than
with the Boundary country," be said to
the Kootenniii. "1 think we have got
l�� Her and brighter prospects bere,
Win-" things get Into proper shape
again I think the Slucilll will he away
ahead uf thai country. To live in. and
for business, 1 think Kuslo is a whole
lot superior tu any Biilllldliry town, I
think more of Kaslo tlinn I did before ill
comparison with the country down ln-
low. A dozen Slocan people told me
I hnl they were sorry I hey ever led."
There are dozens of old Kaslo people
in Greenwood that will not agree with
