Sale of the Sunrise.
K. A. Brown, popularly known as
"Sunset" Brown, called at the Miner
ollice Tuesday on his way to tbe Similkameen. Speaking of the Sunset mine
he said that the surface showing of copper in a feldspar gangue covered an area
of 2001' feet square. The shaft, which is
double compartment, is down 180 feet.
At the 1110-foot leval a crosscut was run
40 feet in ore and no wall encountered.
An average sample of this body gave an
assay value of li) per cent, copper, $3 in I
gold and two oz. silver. Mr. Brown
thinks the Sunset the biggest tiling in
Britisli Columbia, not even excepting
the Volcanic cf which he is also the I
owner. He says the tunnel on that ]
property is in over  700  feet,   but   work !
3000 degrees centigrade, hitherto consid
ered impossible to reach.
Thy value of the process is in welding
together steel rails and tubing.
Kelly Arrested.
Edward Kelly, a prospector, was arrested on Tuesday for stealing tobacco
from a car in the C. P. R. yards. A car
had been broken into and several caddies of tobacco were missing. Two were
found hidden under a freight shed, but
the police instead of removing them set
a watch upon them with the result that
Kellv appeared on the scene and was
promptly taken into custody.
A Record Breaker.
A false alarm was  turned  in  to the
lire hall  on   Wednesday evening.   The
department turned out,  and  hose  was

Louise Brebany Ballad and Opera Concert.
There is to visit Greenwood soon a
concert company of unusual attractiveness and merit: we refer to the Louise
Brebany ballad and opera concerts,
headed by one of America's favorite artists, Louise M. Brebany. Miss Bre-
htiny has become famous as a ballad
singer the country over, and has appeared heretofore as a soloist with some
of tlie great organizations of the country
including Sousa's hand, the Marine
hand. Kihnitird Benienyi company, Bernard Listciiiann company, etc.   This,
her second season  at   the  bead  of  her
own company, she.' has  surrounded her
self   witli   great   artists,  including W.
(Inillaume Sauvlct,   the   noted   Belgiun
pianist    and    conductor;     Miss     Olga
Bchmoll, a youg violinist,  whose  work
has attracted  unusual attention in  her
recent appearances in tlie east and in
Chicago; Jessie   B.   Monroe,   a  favorite
alto; Forrest  D. Carr, basso   eantante,
of whom   Edouaril   Rezeke   writes:    "I
have found in him a  magnificent voice,
and he has a great future  before  him."
And Louis J. Mint?., a young  tenor  re- j
cently  returned    from   extended  study
abroad; critics give  him  great praise. I
These artists appear in a program, con-j
eluding it with an act of grand opera in ]
costume.   Such a concert by  such artists is a rare treat anywhere, and should
*>e greeted hy a big audience here.    Miss I
Breoany has become famous as a ballad
singer, and lias taken  the  place  in   the
esteem of the public so long held by the
late Emma Abbott.    The company   will
appear in Miller's hall, Wednesday eve- :

Mackintosh Nominated,
("live Pringle, James Kerr and Hold.
Wood returned from Kossland on Wednesday. They were delegates to the
Conservative convention. They claim
that the convention was unanimous in
its choice of C. H. Mackintosh as its
representative, there being no other
nominees. Mr. Mackintosh declared in
favor of party lines, but stated that lie
would reserve the right to use bis own i
judgment as to the support or disapproval of measures introduced.

to elect delegates to the Rossland con-
! vcntion on the 10th inst. Clive Pringle, James Kerr and Robt. Wood were

About 20 cricket enthusiasts met on

formation of a club. A committee was

I meeting.
litis said that in all about 2250 feet of
underground work had heen done. A
shaft has been sunk to a depth of 325
feet and crosscutting is going on from
botli the 150 and 300-foot levels.
Ore-bins holding 800 tons have been
built and are filled with 400 tons of first
grade and 41)0 tons of second grade ore
ready for shipment as soon as the spur
from Hartford Junction is completed to
the mine. Tlie property is iu a position
to ship 50 tons a day.
The Golden Crown is one of the leading mines of tlie district, and when
transportation facilities are afforded

payers. Mr. Laidlaw, of pyritic smelter fame, is shipping a carload of thu or*
to Lcinlville lor experimental purposes.

that British Columbia stocks are becoming firmer in price and are slowly climbing upwards. This is good news to the

The wrangle at the liberal convention
held at Vancouver has clearly shown to
the liberals of the province that Premier
Martin has succeeded in breaking up the
liberal party lo a woeful extent. During the session the delegates became s.>
excited and violent thai a squad of police had to be called in to quell the disturbance; and even then, unable to
carry on any business, the convention
was  adjourned  sine   die.      Martin   has
never been endorsed by a liberal convention as the liberal leader ll remain.- lo
be seen whether lie will he endorsed
by Ihe liberal voters al the provincial election.
It would appear thai the Canadian Pacific   Railway t'o.   have  got Southern
Hritish   Columbia   Irretrievably in   its
grasp, and that we are furrier to be devoid of railway competition in the Boundary district, unless it. conies from the
American side of tlie line.    It  is to lie
hoped  that our cousins across the border will see that a large revenue is to be
derived   from  a  competitive  line,  and i
will build to the boundary  at   Grand '���
Forks and  Midway.    This  would  spoil '
to some extent the  "free hand"  asked '
for  by  President Shaughnessy in   the
Boundary district.
The Britisli government has spoken
plainly concerning the terms of peace
which will be considered in South Africa, viz, uncoiiconditioiial   surrender.    A
few more months may elapse before such
comes tu pass, b.it eventually it will.
Great Britain will not show herself a tyrant, but will doubtless be magnanimous enough to grant to the Transvaal
According to Hie Times the mining
men of the district are heartily endorsing   the    establishment   of   sampling
works in Greenwood. It is to be hoped
that the.city council, after satisfying itself as ts Mr. Armet's financial standing,
will take steps at once to have such
works erected. It would mean a revenue to the city and tlie development of
many mine prospects.
I
Now that the labor trouble in the
Kootenay has been satisfactorily settled,
, a better feeling prevails throughout the
\ whole of mining British Columbia; and
I we may expect now to see eastern capi-
| till, which has been held back until such
settlement was accomplished, again turn
towards us. We need the capital, and
ihe capitalists want our mines, so il
will be a fair exchange favorable to both
sides.
The celebration committee should
meet soon and get the various snb-eoin-
mittees chosen and set to work. There
! is much work to be done ii our Dominion day celebration isto he a success, A
strong committee has been chosen and
should he able to achieve good results.

It will doubtless surprise many Canadians us well as Americans i" rend
that Canada's foreign trade amounts to
$68,90 per capita yearly, while that of
the grout republic to the south of us
amounts to only $26.31 per capita, or
I less than one-half that of ihe dominion,

PRESS OPINIONS OF JOE.
This is one of the most interesting
characters of Canadian political life.:
What a figure be would have been iu the |
French revolution I It is not necessary,
as it is well nigh impossible,, to pronounce upon the policy of the imiu.
It is difficult to discover any politics in
tbe chaos of Britisli Columbia politics
save that of trying to obtain power. Is
there anyother man in Canada or other
man in Canada or elsewhere who could
have done what this man has done?
He was a very prominent figure in Man'
itoba politics. It is said that be saved
the Greenway government from defeat
in at least one crisis. He was the fighting man of the cabinet. It is said be
fought inside the cabinet as well as outside. When he went fo Ottawa he made
everything lively there. Too lively for
many. When Laurier's government
was formed Martin was left out. He
went to Britisli Columbia���athousand
miles from his former scene of battle.
British Columbia was soon in a whirlwind, out of which emerged Joseph
Martin. Sometimes he was defeated ;
sometimes victorious. Sometimes be
had a few followers ; sometimes hardly
any. He was fighting all the time.
livery one knew he was lighting all tbe
time. One would imaging like Henry
of Navarre he would be a cheerful lighter with a smile always hovering about
him. lie is premier at last. One wonders what would happen if he were to
visit the maritime provinces in turn,
then Quebec and finally Ontario Of the
good or bad qualities of the man we
have nothing lo say. But among the
men of the men of the time passing like
shadows through life's brief drama
them is no more unique or picturesque
character than Joseph Martin. Cue is
irresistibly drawn in thought to Stevenson's character of Alan Brock crying
out in glee, after the bloody light to his
companion David: ''Am I no' a bonny
fighter?"���Presbvterian Review.
To be a successful politician in this
western land it is necessary to be pugnacious, thick-skinned and patient. Joseph Martin lias the first two necessities, hut he lacks the third. As a light
er In- has few equals; personal attacks
and ridicule effect him no more than
duck shut, would a grizzly bear, hut impetuosity with him comes before a fall.
Joe Marl in nils on the spur of thu moment. He bus none of the waiting power of a Theodore Davie nor the caution
of a Cartor-Cotton. The late Mr. Davie
would wait for years to cruHh an opponent ; Joe Martin would like to demolish
an enemy Prince Rupert fashion.   Since
the Deadman's Island squabble of last
year Mr. Martin has desired the political scalp of Mr. Cotton. He sighed for
it as intensely as Ilerodias longed for the
head of John the Baptist. But he will
probably regret that be was in such a
hurry tu get his revenge. The electors
are not concerned in the Martin-Cotton
duel, and on election day tbey should
vote against these men and their nominees.���Kaslo Kootenain.
Hon. Tom Johnson is the twin of Hon.
Joe Martin. Tom is a tireless enemy of
trusts and tariffs ; so is Joe.
Joe is a politician, but refuses to be
labelled as a strict politician. Tom is a
millionaire, hut ioins in the fight
against conditions that make men millionaires.
Joe is ns happy us an opponent of the
government as on the government
benches, and Tom takes fate as it comes
illlit keeps un+iui'liiig.
The  other day   some  slocks   in   New
York went staggering up from III) to
above pur with Tom on deck with a
pocket full of script; at the right moment he jumped off with four million
dollars in his wallet.
Tom and Joe call themselves social reformers, and doubtless they are pioneers in a new sphere of usefulness.
Politicians and millionaires are open to
conviction and iinisl be converted,
and men of their own class can reach
Ihem as no others can.
But all the time we keep looking at
Tom and Joe from the corner of our
eyes. They are with us but not of us.���

LABOR NOTES.
All of tbe painters, bricklayers and
stone masons in Vancouver went on a
strike April 2nd. Tbe carpenters were
also to have gone on a strike, hut as
their demands were acceded to by tbe
contractors they went to work in the
morning as usual. The carpenters, who
bad been receiving 30 cents an hour for
nine hours' work, demanded 33V3 cents
with a Saturday half holiday. The masons and bricklayers, who had been getting $4.50 a dav for a nine-hour day, demand the same pay for an eight-hour
day. The painters ask for an increase
ot pay from $2.50 to $3 a day. All
unions mentioned also demanded that
all work must be by the day and he assigned to them by the contractors them
selves, and not by the carpenters to
whom the work is sublet.
Mayor Jones of Toledo recently said :
"The kind of trust I believe iu is Uncle
Sam's big trust���tbe postoffice. Atone
end of the car you may see a railway
mail clerk working for $83.33 a month,
and eight hours a day. At the other
end you may see an express messenger
working for $00 a month, and 14 hours
a day."���One has a socialist job, the
other works for a private corporation.
Many of the Butte mining operators
give their employes a Sunday off twice
every month. It is said that some of
the mines will iu the future give their
men every Sunday off. It is held as
much ore is hoisted, and tbe system
gives the repair men a chance to make
their repairs on Sunday, thus decreasing the liability to accidents.���Western
Mining World.
All the coal mines in Indiana suspended operations at the elose ol work
March 31. This action was due to the
failure of the operators to sign a wage
conlract-l'iir the year beginning April 1.
About 0,(1011 men will he idle until the
joint conference is resumed April 1(1.
If you see a village of prairie dogs and
one of the dogs is fat, you may rest assured that all the rest of the dogs in that
locality are fat also. It is only in our
so called civilization that you see the
gouty and overfed rich surrounded by
the starving poor.���Eugene V. Delis.

The Way of all Weeklies.
It. is needless to say to our readers
that the course of The Kicker for the
coining year will be onward and upward.
We shall make it even more hot as a political organ. We shall probably advocate a war with Mexico and demand annexation of Canada. We shall have a
"dark horse" of our own for the next
presidency. We shall do our level best
to bust three or four trusts and speak
many encouraging words to the Sunday
schools. Now and then, when the stage
breaks down or the Hoods carry away
the bridges, we may get out of ink and
paper, and be. obliged to get out a half
sheet, but that half sheet will be a corker. We bave always led in polities and
shall contiuue to bead the procession.
We are a hustler from Sunday morning
to Saturday night, and Uncle Sam may
continue to depend on us to help boom I
North America up into the tree lops and
feet thick. Coal is shipped from both
places. The company completed 152
coke ovens in 1809, and laid the I'onna-
tion for 88 more. It has also let contracts for the building of 300 more.
The (financial Chronicle of Montrerl
remarks editorially: "The unprecedented use of coal has caused such an
exceedingly active demand that the. coal
' market is in a most unusual situation.
Companies are stated to be in receipt of
requests lor quotations for shipping coal
to almost all parts of the world. While
this condition of things is doubtless
traceable lo (ireal Britain's warreduirc-
' menls, and the stocking of her various
coaling stations to their full capacity as
'a precautionary measure in ease of complications with other than President
Kruger, it. is also doubtless due in part
to the almost universal boom in commercial activity. The Canadian coal
lields are increasing in value year by
yiar, and all the. energies of our people
ought to he. devoted to milling the
'dusky diamonds' known to exist in
Cape Breton, Brititb Columbia, and
many districts yet untouched by the
miner's pick.
"If the world is threatened, as some
would have us believe, with a coal famine, greater efforts must be made to increase the output of every mine in tbe
dominion of Canada. Let us make the
most of our golden opportunities. It is
estimated that the Britisli government
has, since the war South African war
began, shipped between 200,000 and
800,000 Ions of coal."

of which the Phoenix Waterworks Co.
can now go ahead and do business, It
has taken six months to get this far,
but before long now the dirt will begin
to Hy.
As soon as a few more details are completed, it is Mr. Hnniberger's intention
to proceed energetically with the installation of the system. The supply will
be from the la.ee on the Now York
claim and also from a number of clear
springs. A tank to hold 100,000 gallons
will be built at some point above the
Brooklyn mine, high enough to afford
good pressure in all parts of the town,
where water may be desired. It will be
pumped into the tank.
Ar lirst it is expected that about 7.000
Vjt of four-inch mains will be required,
I ^addition to the laterals, and the order for this will shortly be placed. A
number of hydrants, for lire protection
will also probably be put in. When
completed Phoenix will have as good a

of a better quality than any in this section.���Pioneer.

would have a right lo send their patients

MINING BRIEFS.
Arrangements are being made for the
immediate resumption of operations on
the Emmu,���which has been idle for the
past three years or more. The Mackenzie & .Mann syndicate, which owns
tbe controlling interest of this line property, is said to have at lust concluded lo
open up the mine, which is Ulldotlbted-
I ly there, and the water will he got mil of
1 the shaft and work commenced within
the next few weeks.
The railroad graders on this claim
opened up a lead over 100 feci wide on
the surface, which is the lines! copper
ore ever found on top of the ground ill
the    Boundary.     This   ledge    parallels
that on which the shaft was put down
100 feet several years ago nnd which
showed the property up sufficiently to
prove it worth many thousands of dollars.
With the resumption of operations on
the Emma, mining development in
Summit camp will receive an immense
impetus and many other owners of property in that Section will  be encouraged
I to   begin     development     also.���li rand

Mollie claims in Summit camp, adjoining the Homestake on the north, and is
getting a very fine showing. These
properties were orignally known us the
Silver Cliff and Coolgardie, and nre said
to have some of the linest and largest
surface outcrops in the district. Deeper
development has considerably increased
the splendid surface showing and they
are now classed among the best prospects of the camp. Mr. Cunningham

pending some time. It is regarded as
one as the mosl important consummated in this portion of the stale in recent years. The consideration is nut
made public, hot is staled at from $100,-

the mine are understood to have taken
bonds of others on tbe famous Atlanta
lode, and intend to liuike a great consolidation,   and   erect   a   large   reduction
plant.

It Takes Money to Run a newspaper
W 1ml an exaggeration! What H
whopper! Il llllS been disproved a
thousand times: it is a case of airy
fancy. It doesn't take money to run a
newspaper. It can run without money,
ll is not a business venture It is a
charitable institution, a begging concern, a highway robber. A newspaper
is the child of the air, a creature of a
dream, It can go on and on, and any
other concern would he in the hands of
n receiver, and wound up with cobwebs
in the windows, ll takes wind Iu run a
newspaper; it takes gull to run a newspaper, it takes a scintillating, acrobatic imagination and a half-dozen white
shirts Hnd a railroad pass to run a newspaper, lint who ever needed money tu
run a newspaper? Kind words are Ihe
medium of exchange Iu do the business
for the editor���kind words and church
sociable tickets! When you see an editor with money, watch him; he'll he
paying his hills nnd disgracing his profession. Never give money to an editor.
Make him trade il out : he likes tu
swap.
Then when you die. after having stood
around for years and sneered nl I ll li-
tor aiid his little Jim crow newspaper,
he sure and have your wife send iu I'm
Ihree extra copies hy one of your weeping children, and when she reads the
generous and touching notice, forewarn
her to neglect to send in the 15 cents lo
the editor. It would overwhelm him.
Money is a corrupting tiling. The editor knows it; what he wants is your
heart-felt thanks. Then be can thank
the printers and they can thlllilt their
grocers!
i live viiur job printing Iu the city
printer, and then come nnd ask fur tree
puffs (let. your lodge letter heads and
stationery printed out of town and then
Hood the editor with beautiful fraternal
thoughts fn resolutions of respect and
cill'ds nf thanks. They make such spicy
reading matter, and when you pick it
up tilled wilii these glowing and vivid .
mortuary articles, you are so proud of
your little local paper !
Hut money���scorn the filthy thing.
Don't lei Ihe pure, IlillOCHIll editor
know anything about il. Keep that for
sordid tradespeople who charge for their
wares. The editor gives his bounty
aivay. The Lord loves a cheerful giver!
He'll take care uf the editor,     He   has a
charter from ihe state to act an a doormat for the company He will gel the
paper mil somehow | and -land up for
the town and whoop it up for you when
you run for ollice. and lie nboilt your
pigeon-toed daughter's tacky wed ling,
and   blow   about your big-footed sons
when I hey gel a $-1 a week job, and
weep over your shriveled soul �� ben il is
released from its miserable hulk, and
smile at your giddy wife's second marriage Don't worry about Ihe editor���
he'll get, on. The Lord knows bun ���
but somehow.���St. John I Kansas) News.
Saved the Queen's Life.
I'ew people are aware that Major
Gordon Wilson, who is now shut up in
Mcfoking with Ids wife, Lady Sarah
Wilson, and their relative, Col. Baden-
Powell, was the plucky Eton boy whoso
promptly "downed" the lunatic who
made a mad attempt to assassinate the
Queen at Windsor railway station many
years ago. Major Wilson is the son of
'[���;. millionaire squatter who lived at
i '.eihloune, near Ballarat,' the antipodean .lobnaiinesburg of bygone days.
After Ihe Windsor episode the Queen
naturally took some interest in young
Wilson, with the eventful result that
she invited bis father up to the castle.
He was the plain Sam Wilson, the
rough and mightily rich colonial   squat
ter, and he was subsequently knighted
by   Her  Majesty.    "Sir Salmon"   Wil-I
son,  as  he  Was  popularly   known,   by
reason of his introduction of salmon  to I
the Australian rivers, was a big-hearted I
and genial man, who sat for some  years j
ns one of the members of Portsmouth.
All Australians regretted   that  be  died !
before his time; hut he has left a worthy
sou in tlie gallant otlicer who has so successfully and resourcefully assisted linden Powell in the  defense of isolated Mil-
faking.    He also left a worthy and clev-
erdaughter iu the person of the  beautiful Countess of Huntingdon,
