While the New Denver people arc
in the business,  would it not.beas
well to complete the work by organizing a stock company to build as an
adjunct to the Comique, a first-class
gambling hell.    It would not take
a very large amount of money to get
a complete outfit, and engage a gano-
Of well-dressed tinhorns and boosters
to conduct the concern,   'They conld
watch for the hard-working miner
and  steer him against the   game,
The  miner would then  be sure to
spend his money in New Denver,
and, build up the town.    We think
the   miners   would appreciate  this
'kind of a dive in preference to the
•Comique.    They could have    more
fun for their money, and fewer headaches and other ailments that follow
the proprietors of the dictation paper Robinson's pre-emption.    To   divert
own real  estate,  which they would water in a southerly direction through
a ditch to cross J. Kobinson's pre-emption,, the same ditch to cross a portion
of J. Cooper's pre-emption, ditch to
enti on applicant's pre-emption. Wa
like to unload with the aid of their,
sheet. There is no room, or need for
a real estate boom in New Denver.
The Government property in the
front of the town is sufficient for all
practicable purposes for years to come
and those who invest there money
outside-of it will only be tying-' it up
to enrich a band of speculators.   '
In addition, a journal has been published there through all the hard
times, and it would be a cowardly
ace now, to desert'it for a rag that is
owned by a gang of would-be rulers
of all creation.

.We hope the" business men. of New
'Denver will take the above remarks
into serious consideration.    They are
1 so anxious to build up their town by
• the hard earnings of tlie I rave and
generous miner, that they should not
overlook anything that will  have a
tendency to corrupt  his morals, and
cause .'lim to loosen up all his cash.
" We hope the  New Denverifees will
have a red roaring camp.    They.are
so anxious tor it,  and tlie boodle of
the lonesome miner   T:cy are so desirous of entertaining  him, that they
should leave no nyk unturned to furnish him  nothing elevating in the
way of recreation.    Denver must be
built up some way.    The miner ma\
eventually die in the ditch, broke,
unhonored and unsung, but NcwDeir

no show in South Kootenay. In that

Next to Cato, who learned Giecl: at eighty,
Mrs. Olive Thorne Miller, the writer on
birds, is probably the most remarkable example of what can be acquired after schooled proper are past. She was beyond
middle age before she could distinguish one
bird from another. She had a inend an
enthusiastic ornithologist, however, and in
her endeavor to be a sympathetic companion to the bird-lover Mrs. Miller's own in-
terest was aroused. To-day she is an ac-
cepted authorityon nil things ornithological.  S /\ |-j

Last Monday the gathering of some
of the more prominent miner's union
men at Finch & Campbell's office was
the first indication to the general
public that some sort of a deal was
under way having for its object the
starting up of the mines. Later in
the day it became whispered on the
streets that a compromise had been
affected by which the Gem, Frisco,
and Standard mines were to commence operations at once, provided
that the railroads commenced and j
continued in service. The principal
features of the agreement, as far as
can be learned, ire" that the union
shall in no way interfere with the
management of the mine, which shall
be free to hire and discharge whomsoever it pleases, aud the executive
committee of the miners' union agrees
also, that they will preserve peace
and harmony as far as lies tn their
power. There is no change whatever in wages. Under this agreement the mines are already resuming
work as fast as matters can be got in
shaj c fur work. Some men were put
on Monday night at the Gem, and
the number is being gradually in"
creased. The Poorman, which had
not 1 ling to do with the agreement
cited above, has resumed work this
week. The Tiger continues on one
shift as usual. To the uninitiated
it would now appear that there
should be several months of prosperity; and .possibly more.— Coeur d:
