Imsfield.
Mr. Ernest Mansfield, capitalist and
promoter, and a very good friend of
the Kootenays, is confined in a coll in
the Provincial jail of Nelson.
He was arrested Wednesday and on
Wednesday night slept upon a prison
couch. When daylight came Thanksgiving morning he gazed, for the first
time in his life, through prison bars
and wondered what kind of Thanksgiving dinners were usually given to
enforced guests of Her Majesty.
All day yesterday and this morning
lie gazed Into the outer world, und, as
lie says himself, sympathised with
those who were compelled to walk
about in the ruin and mud. lie felt
for them as he sat in his cell, dry,
warm and fairly comfortable, and
puffed away at liis pipe tilled with
the choicest tobacco.
In a prison cell I sit,'- wns his
greeting to a Miner reporter who called upon him this morning, lle wus
cheerful and evidently happy. He
wns enjoying himself, he said. He
would not care to spend months, or
even weeks, in a cell, but as he would
he out in a day or two,before the novelty of his new- surroundings would
Wear off, he could afford to look upon it lightly and be cheerful.
Mr. Mansfield's arrest wns caused
by the men who have been employed
upon the Mansfield group near Kaslo.
The group is owned by a Frenchniun
and the men were behind In their
wages due. They went to Mr. Mansfield, and, upon his advice, proceeded
to take action looking to his (Mansfield's) arrest. In this way, Mr.
Mansfield evidently figured be would
hurry up his French associate and secure all of the money necessary to pay
the men in full. It would mean a day
or two in jail for him, but he was
Willing to undergo this if the end he
sought could be obtained.
Rurly Wednesday afternoon Mr.
Mansfield took a stroll down past the
jail. Whilo he wus gazing upon the
stone structure, a Miner man happened along.
"This is the jail hero, isn't it'.'" in-
quired Mr. Mansfield.
"That's the place where they put
the bad ones," replied the reporter.
"Looks comfortable enough," said
Mr. Mansfield, as he walked along,
and the reporter wondered why Mansfield should show so much interest in
the matter.
"Ry tbe way," remarked the latter,
as the reporter was about to take -in
leave, "come up to my olliee about li
o'clock and I'll have a good story for
you."
The reporter did as he was asked,
but Sheriff Tuck had been there before him and Mansfield had been taken
away, so that the story was not obtained until this morning. Mr. Mansfield was asked us to the cause of his
predicament.
"Well you sec it is like this," suid
Mr. Mansfield, "1 was just making a
deal for thu purchase of some more
real estate iu Nelson, when a gentleman culled to see me on pressing business. 1 told the vendor of the property in question thut I would see him
Inter, und thon 1 Attended to tho newcomer. The puiport of this visit wus
that I was asked to sample a new
"Rill of Fare" in another boarding
bouse. Having ft strong lcuning for
anything new und out of the ordinary,
I at once decided to try tho new diggings"
"But what made it all come about'.1"
wns the natural query.
"Well it wus simply a question of
wages due to workmen, and I consider
that the workmen acted perfectly
right in taking the steps they did. In
fact, I advised them to Uo it, When 1
mot them at Kaslo last Saturday."
"But you are not the owner of the
properties are you?" was asked,
"No, but I am agent for the owner,
so it Is all the sumo, but ns tho owner
is a Frenchman and in France ut the
present moment, he could not bo culled upon to  occupy the position, so i
acted as proxy,and elected to do bo fori themselves,    but   the    parties   who
him.   I like to be obliging you know. "
"Yes, but it is hardly fair on you,"
wus interposed.
"There's lots of things that arc not
fair," returned Mr. Mansfield, "but
sometimes it pays to take strong
measures to achieve tangible results;
and 1 am glad to sny that by my accepting the present position 1 have
been the means of bearing good fruit,
for 1 am glad to tell you that all tbe
workmen will be paid before another
34 hours elapse. Had I stayed out, tho
delay would have only continued, and
hato delays of any kind, und more especially when it involves workmen's
wages.''
"Well how do you like the new bill
of fare you spoke of?" asked the reporter.
"A-l. When I got located in my new
diggings, numerous friends came to
see me, and urged me not to remain,
but I wus firm und decided otherwise.
1 considered thut punishment wns due,
and us tbe party deserving it was not
here, I, in the interest of my workmen, resolved to take the medicine."
"But you were on the point of leaving for England weren't you'.'" asked
the reporter.
"I was and am," wus the immediate response. "And although 1 lose
the Majestic, sailing next Wednesday,
I shall certainly catch the Oceanic
sailing the 31st inst. it's a better boat
you know, aud I like comfort when I
travel."
"What about the real estate deal
you spoke about'.1"
"Oh, its only a few lots near my
brickyard and menus an outlay of Bl,-
KIO or so. Rut 1 want them, so 1 shall
lix it up during the next few days.
Then again, 1 wus busy getting options, and have Several to take homo,
so the week's delay in my departure
will be rather to my interest after
all. For I never visit London without
forming one or two syndicates or companies. "
"You have been the means, Mr.
Mansfield, of influencing a great i.eal
of capital In the Kootenays. Have
you anything to say iu that connection.?"
"Here you nre," he replied. "In
August 18��8, I came to Kootenay, as
the representative of the Klondyke
Champs d'Or Syndicate, Ltd., with a
modest capital of *2,000. After a
quiet look round tbe various districts
for a good property, decided on taking up tlie Joker and Derby claims,
and cabled my syndicate of the value
of same in my opinion. Immediately
my syndicate decided to act on my
advice,and the little syndicate at once
increased their capital to ��10,000, in
order to provide more money for developing these claims. There were
-.00 founder shares of -1 each, and ��,-
500 ordinary shares of tl each. My
work on the Joker gave very good results, and the demand for these shares
wus enormous. Ordinary shares going up to IM and ��5 each und founders Shares to ��80 each and over. 1
worked tlie claims up to July, 1809,
und then I went to London. 'The result of this trip wus the formation of
tbe Excelsior Uold Mines of Hritish
Columbia, Ltd.. with a capital of
6800,000, ��40,000 of which wus working eupital and S40.000 fully paid up
oidlnary slinres for the vendors who
sold tho claims. I sliould mention
thut in my contract with vendors, it
specified that ��15,000 fully paid
slinres, would be sufllcient to pay the
vendors, and ��15,000 enough for
working cupitul. nnd the total captiul
need not to have been more than t75,-
000. So, you see that 1 nearly trebled
tho terms I made for the vendors, and
for the working cnpltal of the mines,
everybody knows that early this year
bought everyone of the 40,000.
which 1 paid In cash ncurly 8100,000.
t might say others tried to buy a few
thousand of these shares.und although
the opportunity offered to get them at
about two-thirds the figure I paid, the
parties trying it on, could not toe the
murk���which means they could not
get the beans to pay, so I bought the
lot, as I intended to in the first place,
which not only benefitted the vendor*
I
for
bought.
"In March lust I brought Mr. ,T. .1.
Fleutot out with me, he having been
uppointed in my presence to the position of manager, at a screw of ��1,200
a year. About June last, the Excelsior Company bad a general meeting
to incrense their cupitul. I was at
this meeting and it was decided to increase ��1110,1100, making the total capital ��960,000. On the 89th of September
last there wns another meeting of tbe
Excelsior, and the outcome of this
was that the Excelsior became the
United (lolda of British Columbia,
Ltd., for which Mr. Fleutot still acts,
so you can see, that the little syndicate 1 represented in the first instance
was tho parent of the present United
company which is nil.mi. so I feel,
like the Loudon directors, u little bit
proud of my work.'
"And what nbout the shareholders
in the original syndicate?" queried
the reporter.
"They came out pretty well. For
on June this year, a dividend of 400
per cent, was paid on the ��9,500 ordinary shares, and 5.700 per cent, dividend was paid on tho ��500 founder
shares. These are tall figures, hut
they are facts, so you see it wasn't a
bad start.''
"Hut you have formed several other
companies huve you not'.1"
"Yes a few. For instanco, a little
syndicate of ��5,000 to acquire the 20
claims we own up at my camp, und
this year tbe Mansfield Hold Mines,
Ltd., with a eupital of ��200,000, ��40,-
000 of which is working cupitul to
work several of the claims of our
group. 1 bought, as you know, the
John A. and Treadwell for 821,000
cash, 87,000 cash for the lilack Hawk
and Daisy group, 84,500 cash for the
tlreen Lake Fraction, several small
deals that aggregate about 85,0011 and
tbe bond on the Apex group for 830,-
000, of which $i:i,0l)0 has already been
paid through the Hank of B. C. here,
to tbe vendor, Mr. V. B. lioie, my superintendent. "
"What about the Brick and Marble
business?" asked the reporter.
"That is my own private property,"
returned Mr. Mansfield, "und I shall
make that one of the finest industrial
concerns ill Hritish Columbia, or for
that mutter In tho whole of Canada."
"So you leuve New York on the
lllst'.1" questioned the reporter.
"Yes, 1 guess so, and I dure say I
shall form at least two or three more
syndicates, perhaps more. My chief
object is to demand from tho directors
of the United Cold Fields of B. C,
Ltd., tbe right to empty the Joker
mine, and I reckon I shall empty
their shaft aud see what they've got
down there, for according to Mr.
FleutOt's report, which I have In my
possession, tilings are pretty rich, for
you know he stated that he had a
thousand tons of ore ready to be got
out, that would give a return of ��12
per ton profit after all expenses wen-
paid, in addition to thousands of tons
Of other ore,thut woud with the ubovc
give a profit of ��40,000.
"If Mr. Fleutot reported so favorably as that, how Is it he shut the
mine down. "? asked the reporter.
"Thereby bangs a tulo, und my one
aim now is to fathom this mystery,
and I shall do it."
"Hut you cannot compel the United
Company to spend their money for
your satisfaction?" queried the reporter.
"Certainly not. But 1 am a pretty
big shareholder In the United Company, and I cm compel them to allow
mo to sec my property, and if they
decline, I shall see what the law of
Canada will do, for tho company work
under the laws of this Province, nnd
as I nm an Englishman and heavily
interested, 1 don't see why a few
Frenchmen should have the right to
rob me of knowledge 1 am entitle- to
know."
-What about the cost for doing ns
you say?"
"I will pay It myself,and as my object Is to prove the property and ascertain its real worth beyond a shadow of a doubt, there can be no good
reason why the directors will refuse
the permission 1 shall demand, and
rest assured if they do, it makes no
difference, for I shall get the permission from the Government of British
Columbia. Besides I have reason to
believe that a deep game is being
played to decrease the value of shares
for tho benefit of some people that are
connected with the company, for iu
the face of Mr. J. J. Fleutot's signed
report, something is 'decidedly cronk'
us they say in the classics."
"Have you any other evidence to go
on, in order to secure the end you desire?"
"Rather, read this and it will pet-
hups open you eyes. You will see that
it is all duly sworn before a J. P, of
Hritish Columbia, so it won't be long
before we reach bed rock in this matter."
Here Mr. Mansfield showed the reporter a document, whieh was signed
by a prominent man here, and which
was sworn as truo before, a certain
Justice of the Peace of Kootenay. Mr.
Mansfield believes he has a very
strong trump curd is his hand to play,
and seems certain of success, and that
the object now desired, the opening
of the Joker mine, to see if Fleutot's
report is correct or not, will surely be
accomplished.
"I will surely succeed," said Mr.
Mansfield, "and the parties interested
will find themselves in a tight corner
in three months from now, for as
true as you live, I shall have control
of the Joker, and working it in the
interest of a large number of shareholders, and I urn prepared to speud
82(1,000 of my own money to sift this
thing clenn to the bottom. When I
say I will do a thing I general accomplish what I say, and 1 tell you right
here, I shull open the Joker mine
inside of four months from this
date.''
"The claims you own adjoin the
Joker do they not?" wus asked.
"They do, and thut is the bone of
contention. I, by my pnrchnses and
locations, jammed Mr. Fleutot in the
corner, tho thin end of an inverted V,
and he had to go through our properties all the time which kept tho trail
good for me, and he hardly knew
whether be was on the Coffee or Kaslo
Creek.
"Some other time I will tell you a
story for publication thut concerns
MXi per cent, and a black bear; it is
humorous, it was a scheme to defraud
me of 511 y�� per cent, of my Interest,
for I was the 33X per cent. man. 1
know for a positive fact that a party
in this country at the present time
presented the scheme to the London
board of directors, wherein a way was
pointed out to defraud me of 33>6 per
cent of profits I was entitled to under
a certain agreement."
"Did this party succeed?"
"Not a bit of it, for he lost tlie
whole cheese. It Is a funny story and
you shall have it before long. Then
there is a story of a certain party taking 40 to ill) bags of ore from a prospector's shaft, and filling tlie shaft up
with rock, etc., to hide the theft ;
then again, of a certain party transgressing with locution posts, etc.; ull
very funny I assure you."
"Hut lire not these criminal
offences?"
"I believe so."
"Is thut all you have to tell"
"Yes, nothing more at present, hut
something extraordinarily good in the
very near future."
"Do you like tlie new bill of fare?"
asked the reporter.
"Its not bud, for a   chunge   nt   any
rate, but 1 should not care for It very
long. 1 must say, tbe porridge is a
dream of Lovliness, ns -Kutishu' would
sny, and the bread perfection one
would travel miles to get. Rut I havo
caused taking the usual board, for after a dny's fair trial, taking every
meal as provided to the guests of Her
Majesty, 1 must suy, that 1 prefer the
Hotel Hume fare."
With this the reporter took his
leave of Mr. Mansfield, who said us a
putting shot:
"1 will sec you in my office shortly.
You can say to my friends that I am
treated most courteously by the utli-
cials, and usk them to remember the
old adage, that he laughs best who
laughs last, und I shall soon be laughing."
LII'TON   TALKS.
Says He Will Pin   His   Faith   to   the
Name Shamrock.
London, Oct. 18.���Sir Thomas Lip-
ton said today in an interivew:
"My respect and affection for the
New York Yacht Club, which I regard as the premier   yucht club of tl
thing about my challenge, except that
it was not at all oontroversal until
the letter was given out by the club.
Yes, I have every reason to believe
I stand a good chance of winning, for
1 would not challenge unless sure 1
could get a better boat than my last.
The men, too, will be better. 1 know
I have got to get the very best going
in order lo achieve a triumph over tbe
wonderful energy and skill of the
Americans, for which no one hns
greater admiration than I, Realizing
this, I huve been working steudily for
mouths to perfect my arrangements.
- I huve secured a mini who is
universally  admitted to  be the best
skipper on this side���un amateur who
stands easily abend of his fellows. 1
an'l tell his name just yet and, naturally, 1 cannot suy much about the
boat. Hut races tha _ will rival the
actual cup races in keenness of interest will be the trial contests between
the bout, which Wutson is designing
for me, nnd the old Shamrock, with
the alterations Fife is contemplating
for the latter. Roth designers, the
best in England, will be on board
their respective boats und I cun guarantee the one that wins will give you,
ut uny rate, a close race."

Rossland Press Gives the Highest Praise
to the Opera Mikado There
Last Night,
In addition to a column nnd a half
of praise in its local column. The
Rossland Miner has the following editorial in regard to the production of
"Mikado" in that city last night by
the Nelson Amateur Operatic Society;
The production ot "The Mikado"
lust evening by the Nelson Operatic
Society was, for an amateur company,
beyond praise. Iln-' it been a professional company which produced it, no
fault could havo been found with it.
The greatest credit would have been
due for the acting, tbe Blnglng, the
costuming and tbe staging. There
was every evidence of careful preparation which is requisite in the successful presentation of uny piece,and there
was besides on the part of the individual performers the clearest evidence thut they thoroughly understood nnd appreciated tbe several roles
which they tilled. It is not saying
enough for the entertainment to declare that it was   the   best which has
I ever  visited   Rossland   whether  ama-
: teur or   professional.    It  was   so   far
ahead that no  other  company   which
ever    appeared    here   could   compare
with it.    From   first   to   last the performance had the true  swing  and   go
of comic opera.
The singing was delightful, the. act-
: ing throughout was throughly charm-
i ing nnd the  whole   performance   pos-
j sessed   that   attractiveness   and   that
i pure spirit of jollity which all of 1111-
bert & Sullivan's productions   possess
when properly put on the stage.   The
people of Rossland   cannot afford, for
their own benefit, when   such   a com-
' puny gives   them   the   opportunity to
| witness such a splendid entertainment
I to miss it.    Nelson is to be   congratulated  on   possessing   such   admirable
; talent as is displayed by this  society.
' it is doubtful if any, even   the metropolitan cities of   the   Dominion   could
1 furnish anything by an amateur com-
i pany equal to the   performance of last
I night.

THE MINEB AND LABOR.
In our last issue we published an
extract from The Industrial World,
In which reference was made to The
Miner as an ������opponent of labor.11
There wus no desire to misrepresent,
but, our contemporary is none the less
unjust in its estimate of the attitude
taken by this paper. We are not opposed to labor; wo never were, and
we cannot imagine any conditions or
circumstances that could ever make
us be. No man living and no newspaper, in their senses, could be opposed to labor, understanding labor
in this connection to mean the laboring man and his desire to improve his
condition. We huve for a long time
been aware that the position of The
Miner bus been misundertood, and we
have known that in the present tcm-
pei of the Unions, which are violently
prejudiced against us, it would be
useless to attempt to set them right.
They will know better Borne day,
and we can afford to bide our time.
But we can say now that labor, in
every legitimate and reasonable
pursuit, hns no more sincere friend
than The Miner. We huve been opposed to some of tlie methods of the
Unions, nnd shall be again no doubt,
and when we are we shall speak   out.
The Miner was never opposed to an
eight-hour day. If there had been
an open nnd frank agitation for the
concession, we would have supported
it. We did not oppose labor in that
connection, hut wo condemned the
stealthy manner In which the law
was passed and tho unfair manner In
which advantage was taken of it. We
may havo been mistaken, but we
thought our position right at the
time and think it is right yet. The
Miner trusts it will always be oppos
ed to unfair and unjust methods
whether of Labor Unions or of corpor
at Ions, of political parties or of church
socltles, It believes that UnioiiB have
been wrong, and it sees a tendency in
some of them to carry things with
BUch u high hand that some day the
strong arm of Parliament will have u
Intervene. The Miner will not shut
its eyes to this wrong, nor refrain
from condemning it; but this it can
do while retaining in full measure
its sympathy for the labor cause in
all its legitimate aspirations.
These observations are merely intended to correct the mistake made by
The Industrial World, not wilfully,
but perhaps only in its too great carelessness, They aro not Intended to
propitiate the Unions, which are at
liberty to continue their bitter and
unreasonable'prejudice as long as they
like. Tho Miner curries the favor of
no man or set of men. It tries to distinguish between right, and wrong,
and according to its best judgment
will support the rirjht und condemn
the wrong, let the consequences be
what they may. It will leave to others tin- despicable occupation of pun
during to ignorant prejudices for sor
did purpose-.
Mr. Foley complains thut labor is
oppressed by the corporations. 'Thut
is one cf the cries of tlie Bryan party
in Ihe Presidential campaign across
the border. It has been a cry of the
Unions during the past four years,
having adopted it from the Bryan
pushers In the campaign of IH'.lli. Lincoln was quoted In support of it.
These are the words of a letter lie was
suid in havo written in 18641 "As u
result of the war corporations have
been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, nnd
the money power of the country will
endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon tlie prejudices of the people
until all wealth is aggregated in a
few hands nnd the Republic will be
destroyed." Mr. I-'olcy claimed in
effect that the evils which Lincoln
���wns thus said to have predicted are
actually     happening.       Biographers
and historians were amazed at the letter, as they had no knowledge of It.
Inquiry elicited the fact that the "letter'' was one which was communicated to a notorious Spiritualist named
Cora Hutch by the spirit of Lincoln,
and wus received just in time to be of
perries in the liryan cu ropuign ion J
years ago. In serene confidence Mr.
Foley continues to rely on this spiritualistic manifestation. Bhostly authority of course is not to be disputed.
Hill Hie free use    made   of   this cry of
corporation oppression shows how
ready many otherwise sonsiblo men
an- to be governed by phrases.
(im morning contemporary distorts
tho men n ing of a remark made
by 'The Economist. Tbe latter
had said that the result,
throughout the Dominion would
give an advantage to the winning
party In the contest In Yale-Cariboo.
That Is no doubt iptito true. The
Economist knows something of human
nature, and knows that there are too
many people who run   with tho crowd
merely   1 ailBe It   is the crowd.    Hut
tliis is not saying that these people
are to bo oommonded, and that the
rest of ns arc to sit down quietly and
accept whatever they give US. That
is tho position taken by our morning
contemporary, and it seeks to bolster
it by giving a twist to the very dilT-
eront and entirely truthful remark
made by The Economist, The morning paper thinks in effect that, WO
huve untiling to do but await the re
suit of the other elections and then go
with the majority. "Tho people of
Yale Cariboo," it says, "can best be
served by a member of Parliament who
is in accord with the party in power.11 This Is a highly immoral sentiment, and the citizen who can encourage it is one whom the country cun
well spare.
There is good reason to suspect that
Parliamentary candidates do not believe all they say. Mr. Foley was
probably not as sincere as he usually
is when he expressed the opinion that
the Consevative party wus dead. A
party cannot well die as long as the
principle for which It stands is alive.
Conservatism is a principle, and ns
long as it is there will be Conservatives. If Mr. Foley watched the elections in (Ireat Britain,he probably observed that the Conservative party
there is by no means dead. And if
lie keeps his ear to the ground we
think he will learn by tho night of
the 7th prox, thut it is not dead in
Canada.
We can congratulate. Mr. Foley on
his Nelson speech. It showed that he
is a man of ideas, and he knows how
to express them. Being a Labor candidate, he naturally spoke from the
standpoint of labor; and if his views
were somewhat narrow, the fact must
be put down to his platform rather
than to liis intelligence. With other
environments Mr. Foley would be enp-
able of rising to the issues which
affect all the people, and not one class
only.

with all the self confidence of the amateur deteotlve, "a woman did it.

A servant wns tilling the woman's

was 11 little pause before She spoke.
"Perhaps you are right," Bhe suid,

her with a man of the world, cultured, brilliant; traveled, so unlike the
nieii she hud ever known in her crude
life lie seemed to her the very god of
her dreams, There wns not a charm
of his polished manners, not a turn of
his quick wit, not an elegance or luxury ut his toilette that did not thrill
her every sense with delight. What
he taw |n her, heaven knows. Perhaps
in sinnc dim way her soul called to
his, and for a time he answered it.
perhaps her very ignorance of life
diverted one who wns world-wise and
weary At uny rate he found * (he
little country girl amusing, and] devoted himself to her.
"It's a platitude, isn't it," went on
the woman   with a   throb of   pity   in
her voice, "to say that the girl fell in
love with him?   What chunee has  the
little helpless, fluttering bird   against
the serpent that ensnares   it?   To the
girl it   was like   the coming   true  of
all that she hud ever hoped or  dreamed,   lie fed her alert brain as well as
her henrt.    lie talked to her of books,
he described for her the strange plaeus
of the earth where he had traveled, he
pictured to her the  great singers  nnd
actors    he bad heard, and she choked
with the tense  emotion  of   that  ino
ment when the   artist holds the house
spell  bound  before    the   tumultuous
applause. Her sympathy   und her understanding were like a   strung  harp
that only needed  his  touch   to   wake
into  music, und   so   be    taught  her
love.    Then, suddenly, one   night  ho
Stopped and kissed her���and it was no
longer  a  child,   but   a   woman, who
looked up into his eyeH.with an awakened soul.
"In a few days be went away. Tbe
summer was endod. Ho bad amused
himself teaching tho little girl how to
love, but be had tired of the game,
and he throw her aside as a child does
a toy it has wearied of and broken.
As for tho girl, she had her bad quarter of an hour in which she learned
lnuny things. She learned to cover
up a breaking heart with a smile,
and to luugh to keep   from   weeping

Hho loavned the Hhamo that Bcoiclies a
woman', soul when Bhe given her love
unsought, nnd when she had learned
her lesson, she knew that all her innocent, girlish trust and faith was
dead, and that, come who might in
life, she would have nothing but the
leeu of her love to give him. She had
offered the brimming cup to another,
ami he had quaffed it, and thrown It
cnroleHBly aside.
"You aro not to think the man wafl
bad," went on tho woman.    "He was
��#*��,
merely    cureless.     Ho   had   amused
himself with the girl and it  was  her
misfortune   that  she  wus  too  young
and too ignorant  to   understand   the
game,  and  so    got   hurt.    But  time
brings sirango   revenges.    While  the
girl wus still young   enough   to profit
by it the old aunt died, und left her a
fortune.    She went   abroad, traveled,
studied, knew   lnuny,   many people in
many lands, and wus no mure tile   little Ignorant country  girl, but a personage.    People  don't   grieve always
over a lost love, you   know,   but   still
underneath    everything  else   in  her
heart wns the smart ol the old wound
���the   shuiiii-   of    her    scorned   love.
Sometimes when she realized that she
was very lonely   in   spite   of   all that
money could give, 01*   when she saw a \
girl looking up   into  her   lover's face
with    adoring  eyes, and  know   thut
that look und that rupture could never
be hers, something savage   stirred   in
the woman's  heart, anil   she   set   her
teeth fiercely, and snid to herself: "If
he ever crosses   my   path again I will
take  my revenge, and���"
They never met again until this
Bummer, and curiously enough it was
ut the same summer resort. Life hud
brought its disappointments to the
man. too. He wus ill. broken in
health and fortune,   lie hud married u
woman, beautiful, selfish, pleasure-
loving, who bitterly resented their
loss of wealth, und who had abandon-
ud him iii liis misfortunes,   The   girl
-she wus a woman now���saw nil this,
and Bhe smiled n little bitterly to
think how fate played into her
hands, The man wns sick, lonely,
heai-thungry. Her revenge would be
bo easy to take. It was all there,
deeper, completer than she could have
imagined."
"And I bet she jolly well paid him
back," put in the boy, "trust a woman   to  get  even  for  that  kind   of
thing."
"No," said the woman a little wistfully, "it came to her that revenge
was n hitter drink, after all. She
found out���it does not mutter how���
that a certain sum of money would
enable him to tide over a crisis In his
ulTairs, and secretly, so he might
never know, she supplied it to him.
Believed of anxiety be grew better at
once, but through the long days of
convalescence the woman lingered
near him, breathing into hiin fresh
hope, and courage, and then���"
"And then'.'" asked the boy curiously.
"And then,"  repeated   the   woman
dully,"   she  went  away.    "She  hail
taken her revenge, und the ninn never
knew that the woman who loved   liiml
had   saved    him  for  the  woman  he
loved.''
The hostess wns gathering up the
ladies with her eyes, and in a moment
more thoy had passed through the
broad doorway. When they had gone
the boy sut staring at his wineglass,
and then whispered Something to himself.    "Well, 1 am d���dl" lie said.

We are honest in our declaration. We confess we are hard up, We have more goods than money. We must havo
more money than goods. We anticipated heavier trade than we have had, and unless we can sell the goods now we will
be stuck. We have come to the conclusion that something must be done, and at once. We are desperate, and have
decided to recklessly slaughter thousands of dollars'worth of goods in order to unload. Prices are shattered right

tram at Sandon lias been completed,
It was turned over a few times last
will; as a test. Tho ore bins are
marly finished, In a few days ore
will commence, to coine down from
tlie Minnesota Silver Company's properties, The installation of machinery
at the mill will he finished before the
end of the month, by which time the
company expects to have the eonc.n-
1 rator In operation.
A rich strike has been made on the
Copper Star group on Salisbury Cieok.
Ralph 0. Kenyoii, one of the   owners.
who has been superintending work on
the property, has brought down line
samples of ore from which an assay of
10 in gold and silver was olitaim-il.
This group of live claims is looated
on Salisbury Creek, about II miles
up the lake from Kaslo anil four miles
from the lake shore. The ledge is
BO feel wide and can be traced for
over 3,000 feet. The ore from which
the assays were obtained was practically on tho surface, being only six
r.-et in on the lodge, and at a depth of
about 13 feet.

Canadian Gold Fields Syndicate,   1ms

Several boktfd consignments of ore
specimens for the exposition were rc-
ccivetl at the mineral tent on Monday,
says The Spokesmau-lleview. Among
thcin was some interesting additions
to the collection from t'linip McKinncy
and Rock Creek. II. C. There was ul-
ready a considerable representation
from the camps in the mineral tent,
but they were of last year's specimens. The additional display was one
of the lirst Bilippvd and the delay was
In transmission. The united exhibits
make a complete and important commentary mi the condition of the district and its possibilities. It was one
of the heaviest sulVorers in the recent
depression, and it is yet somewhat under the Influence of t.he withdrawal of
capital from Investment caused by
the South African war. but new work
is being started weekly, and there is
a return of the former activity well
within sight. Among the well known
properties represented ill the new lot
of ores are the fanioim Cariboo, the
Waterloo, Dayton, Sailor. Lemon,Victoria, Siiowdon, Uohi Standard, Eou-
ador and others.
The McKinncy exhibit, is displayed
in the space allotted to the Boundary,
next to the Rossland department, An
interesting ore display from theSimil-
kameen copper district is also placed

"The Laidlaw smelter at (Ireen-
wood is to start up before the new
year," said Andrew Laidlaw, to a
.Spokane Chronicle reporter.
A. B. C, Davis, tho assayer and
chemist for the smelter, has arrived
from Denver, and the metallurgist
will be a prominent smelter man from
either Salt Lake City or Denver. In
speaking of the smelter, Mr. Laidlaw
said: "The entire machinery for the
smelter will he shipped from Denver
Immediately and it will undoubtedly
be the finest in the northwest. The
plans were drawn up by the Denver
Engineering Company and aro strictly
up to date in every particular. Every
thing is fitted up in a handy manner.
The double track runs through the
building above the bins and the sampling plant is near the rest of the
works. The bins are within 711 feet, of
the fin uaee.
"The plans for the smelter have arrived and the main building will lie
188 by l'.'O feet, while the smelter will
havo a capacity of .'11)11 tons per day.
