STOCK A BRICK
Fred Stock tho original lessee of
the Chapleau mine has given
The Ledge tho particulars about
tho man E. E. Savage who recently skipped from Slocan City with a
$900 gold brick. Some time ago
Mr. Stock transferred his lease to
a Seattle company. W. E. Fry of
tho Seattle company engaged a
hard-faced individual by the name
of E. E. Savage to build bridges
at the Chapleau for a wage of $3.50
a day with authority to hire two
men for assistants at $2 a day and
board. Savage mined some ore
and ran the mill without any
authority whatever, and a short
time ago skipped out with a $900
gold brick without paying tbe men
he had hired or the other bills he
had contracted. The Chapleau
mine and mill has had a troubled
career, but its bright days will
soon be here. The police in
Seattle cannot find Savage, but it
is only a matter of timo until he is
located, with or without tho gold
brink.
JAPS,   OLD   CHAPS
Tokio, Oct. 2.—The Japanese
generals who are directing tho campaign against the Russians are by
no means youthful. Marquis
Yamagata (field-marshal) is sixty
six years old. Marquis Oyama
.(.field-marshal) Js-'sixty-twOj^Count
Nodzn is sixty-three, Count Kat-
sura (premier) is fifty-seven, Viscount Sakuma is fifty-nine, Baron
Knroki (first army) is sixty, Bar-
Oku (second army) is fifty-eight.
The September excitement has
passed into history with nearly all
good marks to its memory.    The
second annual Fair held in this city
was .a  pronounced success,   and
caused an immense amount of satisfaction.   The hotels were crowded
with guests, although up to the
timo of going-to press wo have had
no report af anyone sleeping on the
street.   Even   those  who  played
blackjack in*some of the hotels evidently had enough left to get a bed.
The streets wero lit by stringers of
electric lights while on the corner
of Hall and Vernon streets alone
caudle sput and sputtered, a dim,
but forcible sarcasm \ipou this city'B
feeble electric light.   Visitors came
from many parts of the couutry.
A preacher and a policeman came
in from New Denver, but Rossland
was not represented owing to the
walking being sloppy.    Of course,
the only Maxy waB here, but he
does not count.  Sandon sent a fine
lot of farmers, and from the smile
on Ewie Cameron's face he must
have got a prize for something. Bill
Brandon, who has  a  forty acre
farm back of Silverton got pointers
enough for a lifetime, although if
the truth wero known he probably
BM-vftd his time on a ranch near
Guelph long before he mined silver
oro in Colorado and the Slocan.
Kaslo saved the vegetable exhibit
from   an appearance of lingering
consumption, and Theo Adams filled his sack with prizes,  besides
the baby show. At a Fair babies
should receive more consideration
than any other exhibits. Without
them we can have no /airs, but
even the dogs got better quarters at
the Nelson Fair, and few bachelors
were on the directorate. The babies
should always come first, and everyone should get first prize. That is
the only way to successfully run an
exhibition of babies, and may often
.-»ve lives, for there is no telling
what some women will do to a
judge.
The poultry exhibit was the best
this far west of Bruce, and gives
great promise for an abundance of
fresh egg in the near future.
With bread baked in his Dutch
oven on his ranch far'away from
women or their China cooks John
Miles, the veteran prospector secured first prize.
For a country that depends so
much on Mining the mineral exhibit was nothing extraordinary.
W. A. Jowett, the well-known
musician had charge of it, and ores
from Ymir, Slocan, Nelson, Rossland; Lardeau, Boundary, and East
Kootenay were shown.
The Trail and Nelson smelters
had their products well displayed,
consisting of silver, lead, copper,.
SCAltOKLY   CRIMINAL
E. Radley, on trial before Judge
Spinks on Tuesday for shooting a
Chinamen whilo intoxicated a fortnight ago, was released on suspend
ed sentence. Ho had been guilty
of gross negligence but his offence
was scarcely criminal. The judge,
though ho could not make an order
to that effect, suggested that Radley
should reimburse tho Chinaman for
loss of time, doctor's bills, etc.—•

more ways than one the Chinese
procession was a winning feature of
the two days' show. The Chinese
entered into it with great enthusiasm and spent their money freely
in providing one of the most unique
spectacles ever seen in Canada. The
procession represented a wedding
march in China. To the writer it
looked like a combined 12th of July
and Kalithumpian parade, or a pictorial supplement to a New York
yellow journal. It most certainly
was an orange processioni. The
music was grand and resembled the
bag-pipes on the morning after St.
Andrew's supper. The success of
the parade upon the first day was
so great that it was repeated upon
the secoud day with the addition of
the Chinese wedding ceremony upon
the grounds. The famous marshal
of the day, Charles Waterman, led
the procession and his skilful manipulation of the Celestials had much
to do with increasing the gate receipts.
In some respects tho Fair was
rather tame. No.pockets were
picked, and not a hayseed got a
chance to bet on the shell game,
although the limit was raised
enough to let some of the gay boys
look at the hole cards.   Not a sin-
WAS OUT W72.000
Sheridan, Wyo., Oct. 1.—Joseph
Leiter, the Chicago millionaire, is
about $4000 richer as the result of
a wild all-night play in tho faro
bank.
Young Leiter came out here
from Chicago a short time ago to
get a little rest and recreation and,
incidentally, to look after the big
"U" Cross Cattle compauy's affairs
in which he is interested, near
Clearmont.
A few days of ranching palled on
him and he came up to Sheridan
from the Clearmont ranch last
night for a little excitement.
, Shortly after midnight he strolled
into Fred Littleton's saloon and
casually began to play the faro
bank.
From bets of from $50 to $100
on a card they increased as tho
wheat plunger went deeper and
deeper into his cheque book. Finally as much as $8000 was played
on the turn of the card. In less
than three hours Loiter was $72,-
000 to the bad. Through* it all,
however, he chatted laughingly
with Littleton.
Luck finally turned and when
the game broke up at 4 o'clock
in tho morning Leiter was the winner by $4000.

Bob Grcon'sjpluras wero not elected

then Owen novcr owned any other

Specimons from tho Ottawa, Cripple Stick, Reliance, J. C, Juno,
Monitor, Highland, Greenhorn and
other properties wero on exhibition
and received diplomas.
A bar of silver worth $475, and a
gold brick worth 87,000 wero shown
by tho Trail Smelter. The brick
was chained down when our report
or went through tho building, pro
bably owing to tho fact that Dave
Carley lives near tho Fair grounds.
High grade copper ore from

had to arrest no one upon any account. Such a record is hard to
beat even in ParadiBe, and shows
that the far west has lost its wool.
After the show was over several
exhibitors complained that their
exhibits wore stolen or destroyed,
and their prizes and entry cards
thrown in the discard on tho floor,
and annoyances of this kind should
bo prevented at all future fairs.
The Nelson Fair has cOmo to stay
and should grow in greatness with
each passing year. Next year the
timo should be extended to three or
four days. Tiik Lewie makes no
attempt at publishing the prize lists
or printing everybody's name who

railway contractors, Carlson* & Porter for which tho Dominion Government recently paid in full. Mr.
Wilson in that pleasant and winning way of his explains tho matter
thusly:
When Carlson & Porter went on
the rocks of adversity their creditors
placed accounts in the hands of
various law firms for collections.
Some accounts were sent to Galliher & Wilson. When tho, government decided to pay the accounts
the cheques wore sent to tho various
law firms and and in settling with
their clients they deducted the usual
10 per cent. Creditors who had
sent their claims direct to the
government saved the 10. per cent.
Mr. Wilson says that while ho may
be unfortunate enough to havo an
M.P. for a partner ho fails to soe
why hoshouldnotbecntitlod to the
usual foes paid other firms in the
country. From a legal standpoint
wo believe Mr. Wilson to bo justified in collecting his commission,
but do uot think that any lawyer
should have been paid for collecting tho accounts against Carlson &
Porter. If tho lawyers had collected tho money from Carlson &
Porter it would be simply businesh
to receive their 10 per cent. When
the government paid the bills in
full we fail to see what tho lawyers
had to do with tho collecting. All
of them simply took advautago of
tho situation to make a lawyer's
honest dollar, and (Salliher & Wilson did no morn than the balance
of the gentlemen who live upon the
mistakes mid troubles of mankind.
In further comment upon this
matter we do not see why the
Government should have paid the
debts oi Carlson & Porter. If the
Government intends to make good

By ilivino right the clergy owe nothing to tho state. If they contribute to
its needs, ,it is through pure condescension. They sojourn in the state solely
to be protected, respected, remunerated;
they do tho state honor enough by honoring it with their presence, aiding it
with their prayers, enlightening it with
their wisdom, and relieving it of its
money-bags.—Voltaire.
The preservation of health is at least
not less important than the preservation of Hebrew mytholagy; and communities who force their children to
sacrifice a large portion of their time to
tho study of Asiatic miracle-legends
might well permit them to devote an
occasional hour or two to the study of
modern physiology.—Felix L. Oswald.
The affections of the higher animals
aro not less tender and warm than
those of man. The fidelity and devotion
of the dog, the maternal love of the
lioness, tlio conjugal love and connubial fidelity of doves and love birds
are proverbial and might serve as examples to many men. If these virtues
are to bo called "instincts," then they
deserve tho same name in mankind
Lastly, with regard to thought, the
comparative consideration of which
doubtless presents most difficulties,
this much may with certainty bo inferred—especially from an examination
of tho comparative psychology of cultivated domestic animals—that tho processes of thinking here follow the same
laws as in ourselves. Experiences
everywhere form tho foundation of
conceptions, and lead to the recognition
of the connection between cause and
effect.
. . . Many Christian missionaries,
who, after long years of fruitless endeavor to civilize these lowest races,
havo abandoned to attempt,- oxprcss
the same harsh judgement, and maintain that it would be easier to train the
most intelligent domestic animhls to a

unreasoning, brute liko men. For instance, the. able Austrian missionary
Morlang, who tried for many years
without ihe slightest success to civilize
the ape-like negro tribes on the upper
Nile, expressly says that any mission

DKVE_.OP-lI.NT OF MINUS
While undoubtedly the miners' maxim, "follow the ore", is a good ono, and
as a general principle is a better ono
than that which advises vertical shafts
and mine workings laid out with absolute mechanical accuracy, it is unwise
for tbe mine operator to follow the ore
so closely that no prospecting beyond
the walls is undertaken, says the Mining and Scientific Press. Many, good
mines have been closed down and abandoned for years, simply through "the
failure to extend the work 'of exploration beyond the walls of the vein. Ore
shoots in veins pinch out, overlay, and
send out branches, and it should bo the
aim of the careful mine superintendent
to keep in Bight all the possibilities of
his mine, by moans of properly-disected
crosscuts, as well as to explore the
single fissure in which he chances to
find a body of pay ore. Some years
since a mine operator bonded a mine
in the Southwest, pushed development work expeditiously, but always
in the oro shoot, stopping work as soon
as the workings ran out of oro. As a
result the extent of the ore shoot was
soon determined, and tho mine was
disposed of at a price much below that
which had beon anticipated. A short
timo thereafter the disappointed
operator described the conditions found
at the mine, saying that the oro shoot
"feathered out" on the edges, the wall
not being in sight—there being heavy
salvages of clay present. A mining
engineer to whom these conditions
wero described. at once gave it as his
opinion that the ore shoot was only
one of a series and that another would
be found by cross-cutting either to foot
or hanging, and this proved to be tho
case, for within 6 foot a second shoot
waa discovered by crosscutting to the
hanging side, and this proved to bo
characteristic of the occurrence of oro
in that mine. When a mine is first
opened, it-is wise to have the workings
follow the vein closely, but later, when
tho development of the vein justifies it,
it is often economical to sink a vortical
shaft in the hanging wall, which will
intersect the vein at considerable
depth, or to sink an incline at a uni
form angle in either foot or hanging
wall, preferably the latter, that.tbe ore
might be hoisted at less expense and in
greater amount than through a shaft
having numerous changes of dip and
other irregularities.

On the west side of Poplar creek,
opposite the Swedo group, is what is
known locally as the Marquis & Gilbert
group,    comprising   the Gold Park,
Ochro, Ophir and Ophlr Fraction mineral claims   This group was ono ol tho
first locations on Poplar crook and is
one ot tho best.   There aro two largo
loads on tho property, besides several
small ones.   The two largo leads lio
between walls about 200 foot apart, so
this wholo 200 foot may safely bo called
ledgo matter, as it all carries freo milling valuos,   On tho foot wall thoro Is
a load 22 foot in width, which has been
opened up by surface crosscuts for a
distancn of between threo and four
hundred foot.  Tho lead is quartz carrying arsenical iron with freo milling
values.   Along this (hero havo Also
been a number of crosscuts mn through
the schist—carrying carbonates—which
pan freely.   Between tho lead and the
hanging wall there is a small quartz
Ioail, averaging about 12 inches in
width, which carries high values.   On
tho hanging wall thoro is another largo
quartz lead, It feet in width, which
gave 112 75 in gold—mill tost—to tho
ton.   This If ad has Also boon opened
np by crosscuts for a distance of 800
feet.  Thnso nnd Also four small loads
north woflt Af those, from one of which
a shipment was trade to thosmoltor Uit
fall.   Although the owner* do not care
to hAVA the returns from tho shipment
published, the values were more than
satisfactory. Tho load from which the
shipment was made has been stripped
foradistancoot250foot, and a 20-foot
shaft sunk on it. Somo very rich
specimens have been takoiv from the
group, ono sample running $11,600 to
tho ton In free gold.
From Cascade to wost ot Rapid creek
there appears to be a continuous belt of
freo milling ore, running east and west,
and from n milo to a mile and a half iu
width. Tho Golden Eagle on Cascade
creek, has tho same formation as the
Swcdo, Marquis and Gilbert, tho Broken
Hill, and across Rapid croak on the
west through tho Morning group, and
possibly much farther west, as sullicent
work has not yet been done as far as
Rusty creek to determine whether tho
lodgosand values continue. On tho
Broken Hill, Rapid crook thoro is tho
arsenical Iron carrying vory high gold
valuos, just tho same as on the Swede
and Marquis & Gilbert group. On the
Calumet and Heels, Rapid creek there
Is tho samo largo quarts lead with free
milling values in tho schist alongside,
as thcro is in tho Marquis and Gilbert,
Development will probably prove
that tho high grade bolt extends east
and west o distancn of from twelve to
fifteen miles. On the surfaco, the
Swede, Lutky JauU and iUukeu Hill
Iiavo shown tho richer oro, hut It Is
probable the average values will he
about tho same Along the whole holt,

THE LEDGE
has been moved from New Denver to
Nelson, bag, baggage and bull-dog. It is now published every Monday morning and circulates two
hundred miles from its home before the sun goes
down. It is one ofthe most valuable advertising
mediums in Canada, and probably has the largest
circulation of any weekly paper in British Columbia.
It will always contain racy paragraphs, breezy editorials and the latest news by wire and otherwise.
The Job Printing
■„'■■■'■■' o

possible for our artists to produce typographical
triumphs upon short notice. Orders taken for any
kind of printing, from the dwarf-sized visiting card to
the leviathan poster. The work will equal anything
west of the Red River, and the price will not suspend
your breath for even a second. Send your orders by
wire, mail, or word of mouth.   They will have prompt
attention, and satisfaction will reign supreme when

your gaze rests on our Job Printing. Paste this ad on

neighbors need a little space to talk about the goods
they sell.
