The New Rooma of the Sandon
Club a Source of Delight
The Sandon Club had an informal
opening in their new rooms last Saturday evening.   Every one present
expressed pleasure at the handsome
appearance and completeness of detail which the   quarters present.
Every comfort which good teste
could suggest, or money  buy, has
been supplied.   The entire upper
floor of the Harris block is occupied.
A large billiard room with two elegant tables is in the east end.   Adjoining is a card room off of a general lounging room.   Off this is the
entrance room,  with membership
books, bulletin, etc., and steward's
room and lavaratory.   Next are two
large reading rooms, with the best
papers and magazines of the English
speaking world.   From one of these
rooms is the writing room, a quiet
little  place with desks, stationery,
etc., and another room which can be
used for any purpoae desired, which
is left unfurnished, adjoins.
Lazybacks, rockers and sofas
abound. The walls are artistic and
covered with numerous pictures.
The carpets are heavy and rich in
design, and the club prides itself on
having the finest club rooms in Kootenav.   The club now hasamem-

Great Western Assuming the Proportions of a Great Mine.
Last Mav the Two Friend* Mining company, limited, received a
great deal of adverse comment from
the newspapers on account of throwing up their bond on the Two
Friemis mine on Springer creek.
The company are now in a lair way
to more than recover any loss from
that mine in the one they are now
working, tbe Great Western, near
the Washington in McGulgan basin.
This i>roperty was bought from
George Alexander this spring on the
recommendation of George Turner,
who started work the first of June
to open it up.
The mine has shown up since in a
way that has made every one connected with it feel happy. Shipping
ore was struck soon after commencing operations, and the mine started
shipping the first week in July and
has been shipping every week since.
The ore yields 65 per cent, lead and
UO to 130 ounces in silver from the
The work bas been done principally on No. 2 tunnel, which Is in
260 feet. Tbe showing here has not
been excelled by any similar amount
of work in any mine around Sandon. Ore was found from the mouth
of the tunnel, and about 90 feet in
an upraise has been made into a
body of clean ore from ten inches to
two feet wide, trom which seven ear
loads have beeu taken in bat a small
raise from the level of the tunnel.
Thb pay chute has been {trospeeted
for 180 feet in the tunnel and is seen
to continue sll the way. On the
ledge is also about two ft_ct of concentrating, which bas aot been tested as to extent, and haa not been
taken out except in the tunnel.
A parallel vein has been topped
about 35 feet to the north, separsted
from the main lead by a porphyry
dike, which shows from 12 to 18
inches of ore, {tartly clean and partly concentrating. This is all being
run through the Washington concentrator. Four or five hundred
tons of concetitrating ore is on the
dump awaiting an opportunity for
treatment. Wt two tannels below
No. 2, which are in ISO and 260 feet,
have both just cotne into ore, although 75 feet is yet to be run before coming to the ore body above.
The ore here is steel galena.
Fred Nelson is the foreman, and
Imilding* are now being pot up for
the ��tccomn*odation ofa large force
of men, including cook and bunk
lionse* and offices for superintendent.
On tbe whole the mine promises to
be one of the great producer* of the
Slocan. It ia encouraging tr *"*ve a

'Jreat Western for adding great
wealth to the district.
Assaulted aad Robbed.
Lillian Myers wss the victim of a
brutal assault Wednesday mornlng
by Jack MeCaithy, who' afterward
robbed her of a diamond ring she
wss wearing aod got away toward
Three Forks. Mc&rthy had been
employed to do a smalt job of carpentering, and after finishing it bad
demanded more than the stipulsted
payment. When refuswd, he demanded ber watch, which she would
not give np. He then beat ber with
his fist on the face and head tn a
shucking manner, and made her pull
off s diamond ringwhieh tasnatehed
and decamped. Officers are after
him and he will probably pay dearly for hi* ring.

Professor Allen S. Bickmore and Mrs.
Bickmore spent several days in New
Denver last week, and a photographer
who accompanied them made a number
of excellent pic ur. * of tho surrounding
scenery. Mr. Bickmore i* one of the
professors of the celebrated Museum of
Natural History of New York, antl
when the* people of the metropolis
swarm out of the summer heat ttt the
seashore and the mountains, the professor uses his vacation to gather fresh
material for hi*, winter lectures at the
museum. His special subjects are topography and scenery, illustrated by
views, and in search ol material he has
travelled extensively. Of recent vears
he bas endeavored to make his classes
thoroughly acquainted with the scenery
and topography of their own country,
and this year he crossed the boundary
to determine if the scenery of the Kootenay bikes was all it was cracked up
to be.
Going down on the steamer Slocan on
Friday the professor expressed his admiration of the scenery of Slocan lake [
in the highest terms, aud said that when
he lectured upon it next winter, with
tbe views taken, it would undoubtedly
lead to moch tourist travel in this direction. 'He particularly admired, he said,
the topography of this part, the peculiar
configuration of the mountain peaks
and their beauty of outline, especially
when profiled or silhouetted against the
sky of early evening. In the mirrorlike
surface of the lake, it* depth and clearness ; in the shadow of tne mountains
on it* marge cast for a mile or more
across, every detail of outline and color
of cliff and foliage so distinct I v reproduced���in all this he found tbe true
delight of the artist and the connoisseur.
The scenery of this end of the lake,
he said, reminded him somewhat of one
of the Scottish lakes, but perhaps more
particularly of some of tbe more famous
fiords of Norway. He had come through
the Arrow lakes, the Kootenay lake and
other waters, but the scenery of this
one, in his opinion, siirpassetl them all
for its combined grandeur and tovliness.
The professor said on leaving' for
Bonner* Ferry that he was disappointed
not to have been able to spare time to
visit the glacier, and to spend a few
more days on the lake and its surrounding mountains. Hut lecture on the
Slocan would be mainly devoted to tbe
scenery and typography, the mineral
development being treated more Incidentally.���The Ledge.
Another Forward  Step Taken   by   the

From tbe Vancouver World.
The inining resources of this Pro
vinceare being rapidly developed.
New claims are being located every
dsy, and for their development good
and cheap machinery is required.
The p-rogreasive management ot the
British Columbia Iron Works Company, limited, ol this city, have realized the necessity of expanding their
business, so as to meet the increased
demand certain to arise for new and
improved mining machinery, snd tor
that purpose have added a mining
department to their already extensive
plant, and placed the same under the
management of Mr. J. 0. Norbora,
an exMrienced mechanical engineer,
who lor many year* has been engaged in the manufacture of all
classes ot mining machinery In San
Francisco. Mr. Norbom is a thoroughly educated, theoretical and
practical engineer, and has for the
fast 12 years devoted his special attention to the requirements of the
! mines.     JIu Iras traveled through all
the mining districts of the United
States of America, and also those of
the Republic of Mexico.    Thi* year
be has given bis attention   to thi*
Province and the bright outlook for.
the  future in  the  mining region*
throughout tbe coast, as well aa those
in Kootenav and other interior di*
trict*. bas convinced him of the fact
that there is no country looking more
promising at the present day.   Mr.
Norbom has beenonsuHing mechanical engineer for several years for
some ofthe largest mining companies
in California and will continue the
same business here  He lias designed
and erected some of tbe finest plants
in  tbat state,   and  ia  thoroughly
posted on reduction plants, both for
gold and silver ^res, air coiupressing
machinery,   hydraulic   machinery,
hoisting aud pumping plants* etc.
He is also the inventor and patentee
of one of the latest improved ore concentrators.     He has designed   and
manufactured   water  wheel*   of  a
highly effective type. He is aim well
up in steam engineering and power
plants generally,  having designed
the 1,000 liorse power triple expan
sion engine for tbe San Francisco A
San Mateo Electrical railway In San
Francisco. On hi* two trip* to British
Columbia last  spring  Mr.  Norbom
placed mining machinery and made
contracts to the extent of some $60,-
000 including the plant of the Tin
Horn mine at Fairview, all of which
came trom  San   Francisco.     With
their present plant and the mak'ng
of a few alterations and addition* the
British Colombia Iron Works Company can manufacture all of thi*class
ot machinery.   This will mean that
a great deaf of money that now goes
to a foreign country and elsewhere
will be ket* in  tiie Province.   The
miner wilf not only get as good an
article and for less money,  but will
not labor under the disadvantage of
having to send so far for repairs and
supplies.  It will stimulate the manufacturing industry of Vancouver, and
give employment to many more mechanics.   IVcigrrfssive people like the
managers of the  llritlsh Columbia
Iron Works Company are what our
Province should be proud of.   With
everyone desiring to see our citv con
tinue in ita prosperity, The World
wishes them every success tn their
endeavor to develope the latest re
sources ot our young, but rich and
promising eountry.

The last issue of the Grand Forks
Miner had an editorial under tlie
head of u Disappointed," which hint*
that the Eureka boom has busted up
and that the condition ot 1-osiness in
Grand Forks is nothing to be proud
of.   The editorial says:
"Recent arrivals from Eureka report that some of the Grand Fork*
citizen* wbo pulled up stakes and
went to that place to engage in business, are not meeting with the success that they anticipated. In fact
tbey fiod that the nickles and dimes
are not rolling in there with anv
more rapidity than they did in the
forks, and almost every line of business is greatly overdone."
Tlie editor is one of those pious men
who adhere to the exhortation of
Holy Writ not to let their right hand
know what their left hand does. This
i�� what hi* left hand wrote in the
news columns of the same issue:
"There are about 100 men employed on tbe Eureka properties and
in addition to these quite a natnher

The Western Mining World says it is
willing to send any good, reliable man to
Klondike, with the understanding that
be pays his own expenses and gives it
half of everything he finds. This liberal
offer is based on the success achieved by
a man who hired several men to gather
drift wood from the Missouri river, by
giving them half they got out.
A cable dispatch from England says:
The Klondike Company is asking prospectors, who are desirous of accompanying the pioneer expedition, to deposit
��1,000 before starting, for the purpose
of meeting ordinary expenses of the
joumev. A number of unreliable exploration amt development companies
are being started in London and at

wealth in the Klondike country.

SANDON,    B. C SEPT. 4,   1897.
Various reasons are given for tbe
fall in the price of silver, says the
London Statist, tbe chief being tbe
absence of buyers, but we believe
the real reason to be tbe desire of
American speculators to sell a large
block which tbey had been holding
as a hedge against a (all in stocks.
Apparently speculators, seeing the
improvement in trade in the United
States, snd witnessing the rapid rise
in prices of American railway securities, were anxious to, participate In
the improvement, and consequently
sold their silver at whatever price it
would fetch, with the result that
buyers largely stood aloof, and the
price fell to its *j**esent unprecedented
figure   There are, however, signs
tbat the selling has reached its limit,
and that the accumulated stocks have
been disposed of    We msy consequently witness a sharp recovery in
in the price of silver, ss India, and
the Continent also, are merely waiting for indications that no farther fall
is likely to occur before thev again
buy freely.   Tbe fact that China still
refuses to buy, and that a consider
able quantity of yen is being shipped
to Japan, rendering tbe *a*ospect of
Japanese sales of silver not improbable, have also been factors in inducing speculators to bold on to their
stocks no longer.    When the price
touched 26J& a good many purchases
were made tor India,   but when it
was seen that sales continued to be
pressed buyers again stood aloof.
A correspc-ndent writes to tbe Engineering and Mining Journal asking
it to vigorously raise its voice against
tne numerous swindles being worked
with the aid of tbe Klondike excitement. The New York papers of Sunday contained numerous invitations
to subscribe to the stock of companies
and syndicates formed and forming
for the alleged purpose of doing
something or other in the Klondike.
Thousands and millions are promised
investors. Tbe columns of Chicago
papers contain dozens of similar advertisements. All over the Central
West and East the same thing is observable, and there is good reason to
believe the general public is pouring
in its money, in indlvidui! driblets,
that aggregate a large whole. Probably not one In a hundred of these
companies, co called, has any intention of sending anybody to Alaska.
The purpose of tbe promoters is simply
to gather a tew ttotiaands by means
of a cheap, vulgar swindle. Getting
as much money as possible, tbey wJl

ORE   SHIPMENT*   TO   K2t(.LAX��.
Thi* following circular letter Is now
being sent to a number of British Columbia mint* owner*, by Mr. W. Pellew-
Harvey, F. C. S., of Vancouver, agent
for Messrs. Vivian A Sons, smelters, of
Swansea. Wales I
Dear Sik, -I have heen asked by my
principals. Messrs. Vivien A Sons,
smelter* of Swansea, to put them in
posta-asiuii of the value* and character
of our British Columbia ores, with a
view to their entering the held here
and competing for the purchase oi tlie
aame. Looking to our mutual bene til,
I should be glad if you would consign
to me to be forwarded to them a trial
shipment of from one to twenty tone
of vour rich argentiferous auriferous
lead ores, or argentiferous auriferous
copper ore* or matte: such shipment
should reach tne not later than tbe 25th
September next, as at the end of that
month the steamer Tekoa leaves this
port direct for Knghmd.
It 1* the intention, should sufficient
eneouraretiien lie given to thb project,
to establish a regular line of steamers
between Vancouver and Swansea ^to
erect sampling works at Vancouver,
where ore can oe sampled in tbe presence of tbe owners or their agent*, and
to nay cash for the same forthwith in
full. By this mean* very low freight
and treatment charges will be Assured.
I append two or three example* of
bid*; these, however, can probably be
placed on a better basis when, through
the medium of practical test*, the various content* of British Columbia ore*
are known and the business e-atoblished
on permanent line*.
In the absence of sampling work* at
Vancouver, and for these trial shipments, I am authorized bv Messrs. Vivian A Sons to offer the following term*:
l*t. Seventy-five per cent, of mv assay value on the receipt of ihe shipment
2nd. Balance of the value to be paid
through Vancouver on receipt ofthe
shipment at Swansea.
3rd. Freight will be advanced bv me
from Vancouver toSwauaea, iu addition
to 75 per cent, of assay value.
Either at Vancouver or Swansea the
sellers or their agent* Bro nt liberty to
check sampling snd assav.
I have no doubt that you will appreciate the advantage of tascuring the
active competition of Messrs Vivian A
Sons, of Swansea*, for the purchase of
British Columbia ores, and aaslstmeto
do so by forwarding trial shipments, I
would suggest a csr load.
A* to my financial standing, I beg to
refer you to the manager of the Batik
of Montreal, Vancouver, through whom
credits bsve been established tor me bv
Messrs. Vivian A Sons, of Swansea.    *
If you decide to co-operate with me
in thi* matter, I should be glad of an
early notification, so s* to arrange for
receipt, sampling and shipping.

Dave King is in trouble again with
bis contemiiorarit**. In Saturday'*
number of the Kooteuaian tbe Victoria
Colonist is severely abused for pwbliah*
tng *n article regarding Waiter ('.
Nichol in which it is to be inferred by
the reading public that Walter C. wa*
discliargtHl because he was io<�� ultra-
loval to Miit Mr Kuifror his admirer*.
This allegation Mr. King indignantly
denies editorially ami im ideutly strikes
some most terrible blows at the I olonist.
Ihe Colonist, according to the Kooteuaian* statements, is a hiiistoring fraud,
a sheet careless of truth and meddlesome st all tim**** in others business.

But the Kootenaian* insinuation that f
Walter iC. Nichol i* a penny-a-liner
and incompetent to run a backwoods
rag sounds a little cheap to one
acquainted with the facts. Mr. Nichol
(now editor of The Province) is a newspaper man of abilitv and has handled
schwors paste and pencil in offices
where Mr. King could not hold cases.-
The Kootenaian waa stocked not long
ago and An editor was a necessity then
to fill out the bluff. The editor's salary
has now become a necessity and the
editor had to go. Dave King ha* had
a heap of trouble with editor*. One of
them had to go last Spring because he
would not count himself responsible for
the publication of a most sburrilous
Utter in the editorial column while he

Twe Thoughtless Young Fallows Make
a Sunday Sanitation.        _.
Much indignation wa* expressed on
Sunday afternoon at the antics of two
young men who scared the whole community, including the visitors from
Sandon. They put on bathing suits and
with the help of life preservers and a
canoe started to swim across the lake.
When more than half way over the
canoe was upset, and one of them scrambled on to its keel, yelled loudly for
helt) and fell back into the water.
The antics of the young fellows was
such that all beholder* bad to believe
they were drowning. A rush was made
for the boats and a frenzied rowing
race took place to the scene of the supposed disaster. What made tbe excitement the more intense was the belief
that one of the two drowning people
was a woman.
The first boat up helped the young*
fellows into their canoe and returned
to tell the excited crowd that ita feelings
had been outraged as tbe drowning was
simulated and a cruel and foolish hoax.
There were many angry expressions
and threats to punish the perpetrators,
but no fitting punishment being suggested it was fervently hoped that
what happened to the shepherd boy in
/Esop'8 fable would be the fate ofthe
sorry joker*.���The Ledge.

What we have to say upon the gold

out of the realm of politics, ami a**4 designed to make one solitary vote for
cither party ���believing that God has
decreed the overthrow of present insti

the exercise of their own worldly window and selfishness shall involve them
However, inthe finattcial developments
of recent years we see the beginning _l
a marked fulfillment of prophecy whie".t
must not be overlooked or passed by
unnoticed. Wc refer to theiprophecy of

with a general application of this prophecy-to our day ami tK tpproaching

severity upon the rid 1 It*> particulars
of the fourth ver.se of this prophecy
reads: "Beuold t*iat hire, wlieh vou
fraudulently wit'.aeld from those laborers who harve-.iat your fields, cries out;
and the lone, crtes of tbe reapers have
entered the ears of the Lord of annie*.
Here special rtferenoe is made to a
very large class of the toiling popn...-

and to some ���great fraud practiced
against these specially.
But is this reprimand spoken again*:
the farm owners? Does it signify that
they have been deiraadmg their farm

This applies, not merely to one section, hut In /eneral to all parts *t
so-called Chriiteudom. What is tlte
trouble? The answer given is: Over-
prodnction has caused a decline in
'price so great i ���".t the business is unprofitable : an' m.'.ny who are handicapped with del ts, ilnferest, etc., hsve
lost, or are in danger of losing, their
(arms, etc. But why do not farmers
abandon crops th*t arc not profitable iu
favor of other en. j* f.tr which there is a
Keater demand ? The answer is, they
ve done this, especially for the past
three .years, with the remit that all
crops are depressed in price; and since
debts must If possible be met, the unprofitable crops are Increased In the
vain hope of a good year ofg<>od price**'
which would make tip past deficicnee*
and clear off debts
But is it true that there if an overproduction Y Are large stocks of grain and

It has been just so for years���plenty
generally, but contjiaratively little to

'hen, is it that overproduction is claimed, and blamed for the great decline in

influence at work ?

British financiers, as we have seen,

csty of his intentions and the results
being as he claims. There is no im
|in_aibilitv or scientific improbability
about such a discovery as he claims
to have made. Chemistry has in
recent years determined that several
metals classed theretofore as elementary were in fact compounds. The
methods of chemical analysis are
constantly broadening. Emmons'
standing, reputation, character and
previous scientific attainments are all
to be taken into consideration.
It wonld be a remarkable instance
ofthe irony, of fate if while thousands
of men are preparing to risk their
lives, and certainly placing themselves in a position to encounter extraordinary hardships in the quest for
gold in tbe severe climate of interior
Alaska, a modern chemist, in a

Another Fort-card Step Taken bt>the
Brltlah Columbia Iron Works Co.
From the Vancouver World.
The mining: resources of this province are being rapidly developed.
New claims are being located every
day, and for their development good
and cheap machinery is required.
The progressive management of the
British Columbia Iron Works company, limited, of Vancouver, have
realized the necessity of expanding
their business so as to meet the increased demand certain to arise for
new and improved mining machinery, and for that purpose have added a mining department to their already extensive plant, and placed
the same under the management of
Mr. J. O. Norbom, an experienced
mechanical engineer, who Tor many
years has been engaged in the manufacture of all classes of mining machinery in San Francisco. Mr. Norton, is a thoroughly educated, theoretical and practical engineer, and
has for tbe last 12 years devoted his
special attention to the reqnJrementa
of the mines. He has traveled
through all the mining districts of
the United States of America, and
also those of the republic of Mexico.
Thia year he has given his attention
to thia province, and the bright outlook for the future in the mining regions throughout the coast, as well
as those in Kootenay and other interior districts, has * convinced him
of the fact that there is no country
looking more promising at the present day.   Mr. Norbom haa been con
sulting mechanical engineer for
eral years for some of the largest
mining companies in California, and
will continue the same business here.
He has designed and ei-ected some of
the finest plants in that state, and ia
thoroughly posted on reduction
plants, both for gold and allver ores,
air compreasing machinery, hydraulic machinery, hoisting and pumping plants, etc. He ia also the inventor and patentee of one of the
latest improved ore concentrators.
He haa designed and manufactured
water wheels of a highly effective
type. He is also well up in steam
engineering and power plants generally, having designed the iw.%
horse power triple expansion engine
for the San Francisco A San Mateo
Electrical railway in San Francisco.
On hia two tripe to British Columbia
last spring Mr. Norbom placed mining machinery and made contracts
to the extent of some 160,000, including the plant of the Tin Horn mine
at Fairview, all of which came from
San Francisco.
With their present plant and the
making of a few alterations and additions the British Columbia Iron
Works company can manufacture
all of this claas of machinery. This
will mean a great deal of money
that now goes to a foreign country
and elsewhere will be kept in this
province. The miner will not only
get as good an article, and for leas
money, but wiil not labor under the
disadvantage of having to send so
far for repairs and supplies. It wilt
stimulate the manufacturing industry of Vancouver and give employment to many more mechanics.
Progreasive people, like the managers of the British Columbia Iron
Works company, are what our province should be proud of. With
everyone during to see our city
continue in its prosperity, the World
wishes them every success in their
endeavor to develop the latent re
sources of our young, but rich and
promising country.

An article appeared in the issue of
The Patotseak on Saturday, August 28, stating that one Mrs. Bon*ne
had left her husband in Whitewater
and eloped with a drummer. Mr.
Borene most emphntScally denies
this, as he claims that this woman
who says she is Mrs. Borene, wife of
Mr. Borene of tbe Victoria hotel,
Whitewater, is an untruth, Mr.
Borene is not married, but took this
woman into his hotel for an act of
charity, and on learning that she
was a prostitute of the lowest type
compelled her to vacate tbe hotel*.
