Eleventh  Year
Manager Garde Talks of the
Electric Drills and Other
Indications of as Good Ore
Shoots In Lower Levels
���as In Upper.
"Tlie whole nr the Slocan country "
slid Alt' A. C. lliirde, manager of tho
Pavtic, last evening, "has had a revival of late. Lnst year the mines ceased
shipment on acecui t of the low price
of lend, 1.ul ns they have seen that tho
pi-Ice Mid not impiove the majority have resumed work; In other
words, Ihey have adjusted themselves
to the changed situation with thu
hope that conditions will inipove.
Two factors would naturally improve
conditions, One would he the establishment of a lead refinery at some
central point In the Kootennys like
Nelson. This would havo a tendency
to Increase the returns and profits of
tho silver-load mines. The ether
tliinjr thai would help them a great
deal would be for the price of lead to
go up in the London market, and
bring Its value to somewhere near
the figures of a year and a halt since.
As iniitteis are nt present the silver-
lead miners have to content themselves with a very small proiit and it
is icninruablc to note how many of
ill.'in nre shipping under the adverse
conditions new prevailing. It shows
that the mines are in good condition
when Ihey enn lie operated under such
adversa circumstances.
"In   addition   to   the   woll known
mines   in   the Slocan   district, in the
upper   ns   well as the lower   portion,
seveial new shippers   have within the
last few months   heen   added   to   the
productive   list,  which is,   ot course,
gratifying as it reveals   that   capital
still has faith in the mines of the Slocun although the price of lead is low.
"In   tegard   to   the Payne development, work is being pushed as fast as
possible     and      within    a   Oouple   of
months we will he   able   to   open   up
three new   levels, Nos. il, 7 and 8, at
one time, and show up the ore bodies
that nre bulow the present   workings.
The shaft connecting No. !i level with
No. 8   level,   which was driven   from
the north   side   of the   hill,  is  being
sum; at a high rate   hy   contract   and
raising from No. 8   is in   progress  at
the same time.    The   connection   be-
tweon these levels should be made before December   1st.   The shaft is now
130 feet down below the No. li tunnel.
A   new   hoist  was recently   installed
and is now-   being   operated   by   air.
This hoist lakes the place of Ihe gasoline hoist which was not  entirely sat
isfactory.    The air is   furnished   by a
compressor located   at   the   portal   of
No. :,  tunnel.      Air   drills   are   now
used in the shaft for sinking.    At the
same time the raising and   driving   is
in progress in No. SI level   nnd this in
futi-ro will be accomplished by means
of electric drills. I recently purchased
for the   Payne   a   complete   two-drill
electric plant and   it   is our intention
to give  this plant a   thorough   trial.
j The electricity for the plant   is   generated at   the   mine.    It   the  electric
'hills operate successfully, as we have
reason   to expect they will,  a    larger
P'MI   will at once be   installed.    The
pills   are   a    new    stylo,   called   the
���Onrkee.     They are mado on tho same
lines as the nir drill,   but  the  power
I'or the same   is   transmitted   through
a flexible shaft from a dynamo located
Nose to the faeo of  the workings.     I
loelleve  that    electric  drills will   ho

Ithe Slocan,   remote   from   sources  of

"Pments   are   being   mado     to   the
smelters   and as good returns  as ever

"Regarding ihe ooncentrnting <|ues'
tion,'' Mr. tlarde said, "Bcnlly we
have no ooncentraiing ore in the
mine, but we have about lUO.OOt) Ions
of back lillings that wo will be able
to ii-'at al. a profit, I am going east
in a few days to consult with Ihe
board of directors io Montreal and

"We have '.i. 'ti bothered to a roll*

fight the flames. On several oc.cn-'one
we had very little hope of saving '-' e

and we wcte very fortunate to have no
further loss to report than that incurred in fighting the flames, and this
at times amounted to quite an Item,
''We are now working a force of
about BO men, whicli is the maximum
number for which employment enn be

Mr. (larde leturns to Sandon todny
and leaves for New Vork and Mon-
tieal at the end of the week. In New
Vork he will meet his family, which
lias been abroad for the last year
Mrs. liarde and the children wiil

lierlin, Sept. ,1.���It issaid in official
circles that the interview between
Emperor William and Prince Chun
must occur tomorrow or Thursday, as
his majesty goes to tbe manoeuvres
on Friday. The correctness of the report that Emperor William removed
all hindiancoa from Prince Chun's
coming to lierlin, by telegraphing
his willinnoss to receive him alone is
admitted in official circles.
The correspondent of tbe Associated
Press learns that Baron Von Ilicht-
hoff, the Foreign Sccrelniy, will
assist Emperor William at tho reception of Chinese envoys. Count Von
Buelow wilt not be present. Koen
Chang, the new Chinese minister hero,

Little Interest Shown Locally
in the Situation at the
Brown's Entrance Into Cabinet Does Not Excite thc
These aie truly tho dog days of
polities. Yesterday a Miner reporter
started out to liud out what loeal politicians thought of the admission of ,1.
C, Hrown of New Westminster into
the, Provincial Cabinet but no local
politicians were to bo found. People
who arc most actively stirring wlien
the political pot is boiling are so busy
thinking of hot weather, the coming
yacht races and other equally seasonable subjects that they have no time
to bother about politics. Mr.
Brown is about as dead an issue as
his glorious ancestor John, who narrowly escaped being bung on a sour
apple tree. It was in vain that leading Liberals were asked bow they regarded tbo entrance of a Liberal into
an otherwise Conservative Cabinet bin
instead uf expressing great satisfaction as good Liberals should, they
said they had not thought about it,
one going so far as to say , "Who's
There is sonic dissatisfaction with
the existing state of Provincial politics and several stated that, in their
opinions, the only satisfactory solution of the problem lay in the introduction of party lines into Provincial
affairs The minora that this ~im
neing attempted by the gradual formation of a Liberal Cabinet were
given little credence as the Cabinet is
purely Conservative with the exception of Mr. Brown and that party
would naturally have the upper hand
if the first move was to he made
But politics are dead, absolutely
dead, and no one seems to care whal.
happens. There was a sign of life in
only one man who said: "Just keep
your eye on Joe Martin, lie is by no
means dead as a politican and we will
hoar from him again. "
Mr. Brown was to be sworn in yesterday and interesting developments
were expected. The Miner wiicd its
Victoria i irrespondent to send a full
statement of the situation but the
Canadian Pacilic wires were down
and nothing could be received.
One Hundred Milliou Do'lar Combination of Electrio Companios.
Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 3.���The
North American tomorrow will print
a story to the effect that a union of
all thu electiic railways and electric
light companies owned by Phlladelpia
capitalists in now under way. This
combination will involve over .100,-
DDll.tlOil and includes the old as well as
the new rapid transit companies recently chartered in this state.
A Merry-'Jo-Round Incident That Was
Not Very Merry.
Indianapolis. Sept. II.���Two hundred negroes and whites engaged In a
not at a merry-go-round in this eity
tonight. Henry Mills, white, was
fatally shot by Henry Miller, colored,
and Wallace Picket was shot in the
head. He may recover. The trouble
started by John Noel, manager of the
meiry-go-round, attempting to put
negro children off.
Kossland, II. C, Sept. 3.-A few
men are at work on the Le Roi group
of mines and they aie being stenglh-
cned by a few arrivals coming to the
citv. 'Ihe shipment of oro is to be
resumed, a tiain of ore cam having
already been loaded. Businessmen are
leelir.g much more hopeful and are
looking forward with pleasure to the
resumption of the big mouthy payroll which is necessary to the success
of tradesmen. There are indications
that the mines will have comparatively little trouble in socunng all
the men required to man thu mines,
desiratilc miners being attracted by
the liberal wages paid and ths prospect of rapid advancement.

Wiieless telegraphy is the thing.
The business men of Nelson are looking after ami appreciate the trade derived from Ihe coal mining industry
of South Fast Kni.tenay, made possible!
aud aecessable by Ihe building of the
Crow's Nest, branch of thu C. P. R.
and which has resulted in the building up of numerous small towns and
opening up a mnrket for wholesale
dealers of Nelson well worth looking
after. Hut Nelson people, if they
wish to maintain Ibeir position as a
distributing center, must reach out
still further along the lino of this
railroad and compete for business in
the new coalfields of South Western
Alberta. Here capital hrs stepped in
to help nut the prosj ictor and the eoal
fields are being developed as fast as
labor and money can accomplish it
The center of this ne-v district is at
Frank, a station on the Crow's Nest
railway at a point on the middle
fork of the Old Alan river abont eight
miles up from where this stream enters the prairies. Here is situated
the Frank coal property which eight
months ago while yet a mere, prospect
was bonded by S. W. Uebo who interested with hiin II. F. Frank, a capitalist of Butte, Montana, who took
np tb" ' mid and bought outi igbt from
the Government 3,200 acres of coal
land paying some 830,000 for the
same. A force of miners were at once
put to work, whicli was added to as
fast as room could be made for them
in the mine, with the result that the
mine is now opened up to a depth of
1,200 feet and is producing 3110 tons of
coal per day all of which is being
taken by the C, P. R. for steam purposes. The vein being opened up is
twenty-two feet wide,of clean coal and
has heen dug upon ana traced upon
the surface for a distancu of four
miles. This vein stands neai ly perpendicular and lies in an iron sandstone and follows along about 000 feet
distant from a large mountain or upheaval of lime. This company has
now a payroll of $10,000 per month
and which by the lirst of the year is
expected to reach the neighborhood of
$40,000. Ground has bc.in broken for
the erection o' Sal) eoko ovens the
brick for pan of whicli is now on its
way from Pennsylvania.
This is a fine steam coal and computes favorably with that of Wales,
tho C. P. R. having up to date used
over 400 carloads of it without registering a kick of any kind. As a
coking coal it will stand comparison
with that of Fernie. The company
operating this property have set aside
tbe sum of $400,000 to bo used in development purposes.
A townsite has been laid out at the
initio which will be thrown open to
the public about the loth inst. For
the accommodation of their married
employees the company have erected
25 cottages neatly painted, plastered,
wired for electricity and plumbed for
water. These are already occupied
and ground is broken for 25 more and
a contract let to the Cranbrook Lumber Co. for 41)0,000 feet of lumber to
be used in their erection. An electric
light plant aid a complete waterworks
system are being installed. A large
sanitarium hotel is being erected at a
cost of ,13,000 and arrangements have
ulso been made for a newspaper for
the new town. Mr. Frank,after whom
the town takes its name, has declared
his intention of building it up on the
American plan and it will have ro
company store or hotels.
Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 3.���The yachting wager of $1110,000 between Walter

sent to the ministers of Caracas and
Bogota, desiring them lo inform the
foieign secretaries of Venezuela and
Colombia of the distress with which
the President had heard of the likli-
hood of a disturbance of relations
between these two republics. Adverting to the possibilities of the influence
of the Dnlted States being exerted to
compose the pending questions, the
ministers were directed to say tbat
while the lelations of this Government
with both nations are equally intimate and friendly and every opportunity is taken to show the good will
we bear them: an offer of the President's kindly ollices to arrange any
difficulties which may exist between
Colombia and Venezuela would be

3oli Mr. Bock hi 11 says that Chinese
plenipotentaries received the expected

where the Boxer movement has found
its principal strength. One of the
penalties imposed by the foieign ministeis upon tbo Chinese Government
was tbe discontinuance ol these examinations which are dear to the better

were particularly offensive, the
Chinese Government is finding il no
easy matter to discriminate in tbe

Those who have visile 1 the Pan-
American Exhibition say that the

hns been farmed out. is wors-e than
tho sain.- featuie was at Chicago, and
that it forms a blot on the establish*

a management whiob invites tbe

se its tbe material, moral and Intellectual greatness of man, and is symbolic of bis advancement in the western hemisphere, while the Midway is
a gathering of the vileness of the Old
and New Worlds. A visit to one tends
to elevate and to givo the vi-itor a
better opinion of himself and his fel-
lo v man, while the other has just an
opposite effect, as the tendency of thc
exhibitions is to brutalize and brmf
out the vilei instinct-. The American press is becoming disgusted with
_1..- Midway feature and tne New York
Evening Post bas the following in
condemnation of it:
"It is an outrage fur the nation or
01 a city to lend its support to any
gieat enterprise,Mice the World's lair

and then permit the presentation of

iniitated the bad example. Creditable

"The World's Work" Has an account of a Bcheme for practical education for hoys that lias been put into
oiled by the Baldwin locomotive
v. ..r.ts of Philadelphia. There an
tbne classes of apprentices under tin
system adopted. The first class i
n.ado up of grammar school gradu
a*es, who will serve four years, and
receive wages of five C-mts an hour the
lirst year, seven cents tho second, nine
cents the third,elceii cenls the fourth
year, and a bonus of Sl_3 when theii
appreuticeship is completed, During
their four years of service they will
b. obliged to attend a night school
sustained by the company, three evenings in the week, where the studies
are to be geomct -y. algebra, drawing,
perspective and teohnlcal course.
The company engage- to teach apprentices a trade and that their work
shall be changed from time to time so
that they will learn thu whole busi-
E- ss.
The second class is of high school
giaduales, who serve three years at
7. '.., and 11 cents an hour and a tonus
cf Si"'.. Tho members ot tbe second
class will take tbo technical studies
of the l ight scliool during a portion
of their tenn.
The third class is to be made up of
graduates of Colleges and technical
b liools, not as apprentices, but as
c nployes, at 13 and 18 cents an hour.
1 be members of the third class aro not
required to attend the night scliool.
Tb" school is established in recognition of the fact that where practical
s;:ill and technical education are com-
bined in individual- the very best re-
suits in the way of highly trained
aud valuable men foi mechanical work
are obtained. There is a growing de
niand.-v.-r-, there for men who r...t

Hl.tory very often repeats itself. A
few years since, owing to the strike
oi tlie engineers and other labor
troubles In Great Britain, a considerable number of eontir.cts for bridges
and other structures, for which hon
and steel were required, came to the
t'nited States because of the temporary
inability of the British concerns to till
tbem. Now the British papers antic
ipate great advantage to their industrial interests fiom the strikes in the
United States, as not a few orders,
which were formerly filled by American establishments have lately been
received bv tbe British manufacturers.
The Western Canadian Press Association has under consideration a plan
to organize an excursion to California
during the coming winter. So fur
the proposition Is to include nearly all
of tbe editors and publisnets in tbe
Northwest territories, Manitoba and
Western Ontario. The proposed excursion would embrace Minnesota.
Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado,
Wyoming, - -v. ��� -:. nia, Oregon, Washington, Idaho Montana,
North Dakota und fossihly Utah. lt
is purposed to tako a Bpeclal car with
the excursionists, which Ie to be loaded
with the agricultural and otber prod-
acts of tbe Northwest to show the
people what a fruitful country Western Cnnaon is and so advertise the
country. Tbis is a scheme ill which
the newspaper fraternity of British
Columbia should take a band. Thoy
Bhould iiiti the excursion party with a
car loaded ������.ith a.-, representative an
exhibit of the mineral resources of
this section as could be gotten together. Sbvi il1 slot'.- '������ bii b are to be

sources . h -��� arc ' illforna, Colorado, '.'- gton Id Montana
and i tab, tad a I ���"-��� impeded by a numb, i rs wbo
are thoroughly in touch with the rain-
it is often the case that Idlers are
received in the Miner ollice from
points in the United States which en
close American stamps for reply.
Tbis is because the senders do not
realize that an United States stamp is
useless for the purpose of sending letters or papers out of th s country. It
is of frequent occurrence, too, that
Americans temporarily sojourning in
Canada put U. S. stamps on letters
and wonder why their correspondents
never receive their communications.
This bas become the practice to such
an extent that the following notice
has been posted in the principal hotels
n Toronto: "American tourists and
others are respectfully reminded that
il is absolutely necessary to prepay all
corie.-pondencc and other classes of
matter addressed to points in and out
of Canada, with Canadian postage
stamps, for the reason that foreign
postage stamps are neither recognized

Al the session of tho Small Debts
court held before Magistrate Crease
j'esterdav morning, there wero quite a
number of cases to come up for trial.
Debtors for water and scavenging to
tlio City of Nelson filled up the list,
with one exception. Tho first case
was the Corporation of the City ol
Nelson vs. Hip Chong, for water rates
to the amount of $55. Hip Chong paid
$35 in court, and the matter was adjourned to tbe first week in October to
allow him to pay the balance. Three
othor cases for smaller amounts for
water rates wore adjourned for three
weeks to allow the defendants an opportunity to settle. In the case of the
City of Nelson vs. II. -Sutler, judgment was given against the defendant
for ,11, the amount of the account
charged against him for scavenging.
Nelson & Mallelto brought suit
against 11. Hoy I'or board. A counter

eon hi not be used. The ''A. P.,"
therefore, came into Canada nl
Buffalo, went from Eastern Canadian

then to Portland, Olfl,, Spokane aud
finally to Nelson. Coast news came
via San Francisco.
This   promises   to  be a very bright
season   for   the   Nel:,on   Operatic   .Society.     The executive committee held
a meeting last evening in   the otlice of
the President, Dr. LaBau and thirteen
out of tlio   fourteen   members   of   the

finally decided to chose one from   the
following,   "Chimes   of   Normandy,"
Robin     Hood."     ''Yoemau   of   She
Guard,"    and   '-Ermine."     A   telegram was sent to an   eastern publishing house   ordering  the scenes  of the
above opetas to be sent and when they
arrive a choice will be made.
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wright returned to   Nelson    the   beginning   of   the
week, after a pleasant and interesting

Montana, on the Uist regular tram to
traverse tbe line after  tlie tracks bad
beon   cleared,   21 hours after tbo accident Happened.    Mr. Wright said that
of all the cars that had boen   piled in
that vast charuel heap   there was   not
a   piece   of   wood   the sii.e of a   lead
pencil left, nothing but   a   huge   pile
of  twisted iron   and   slnel   rods  nnd
wheels   still   glowing   red   hut,  over
which   the   sickening   odor of burned
human   bodies   still   lingered.      The
