A   Sme'ter Co.  toTaKe  Hold of   and
Develop   thia Property-
Yesterday tlte Argo and Bell
partially cbanged bands and are
likely to become the property of ���
gioeltei compauy iu the near
future. The first payment area
made yesterday '��, Lsigbtou ��v
William*, nnd the mine closes fot a
i<w days pending the constimatiou
of the deal.
Tola mine i* so well known in
Sandon thai it requires hut little
description. Tni* nine lasl year
ii.n a mere prospect, today a mine
in every *en*��e tit the terfii.     There
are two claims belonging to the
property, the Argo and Belt. The
,\rgo lien on tbe side bill and takes
in part <>t i he Sandon towiisile, ed*
joining JOo M Hani* ground .ui
me side and the Lemon addition
to Sand ui on the other       I he   K.
f.teiiig the   postofl.ee  and  only  a
few hundred feet frOD] Keen avenue.
The reaidental part nf the town ia
now almost on the Argo, and uo
doubt before very long we will set;
a number of line buildings on
thll property. This property
should lie extremely valuable in
I itself, if from n���� other point of
view, than that of a townsite.
The Carnival
The first carnival ever given in
tin- Slocau v\;i- held in the rink
list night and pretty fairly attended considering the shortness oi
the notice given. Toe funny pre-

worn by the skaters, and although

dent, that neititer time Dor cue
war expended in tin- get-no of tbe
maskers. In fact, such was not
expected* the object of this cariti
,v s railway runs through part oflval being chiefly to find out  bow
.'ami and within  i few feel "hit would be attended in case anoth-
s present Sforkings.     rhe  Beltler one on a  fi rs t*cla��s scale were

Mirers Umon   Formed
Tims. ('berry, president <>f the
Roasland Winer's I'linti. and local
organiser for British Columbia, on
Saturday evening last organized a
union at Bilverton,    Some  twenty
charter members were enrolled
and tha following officers elected:
President, Chas, M( Nichols; Vice-
President, Samuel Thomas; Fiuan*
cial Treasurer, I M. M. Beneduea*
Recording Secretary, Peter Grattt.
The new union expect to have a
membership of 75 or 100 members
before the vw\ of the month.
A Shipment of Ore to be Made From
Thia Mine in a Few   Days.
Situated on the North Fork of
Carpenter creel: and about rive
miles from Three Forks, is the
Cordelia, a claim that is doing its
share towards drawing particular
attention, in mining circles, to that
section ofthe Slocan. This prop-
erty was incorporated a few
months ago under the name ofthe
Dry Bell Mining & Milling Co..
and a few men set to work to develop it. Up till about a month
Ago their work consisted mostly in
uncovering the lead in different
place- but even in the process of
this work a large quantity of ore
was obtained and a trial shipment
of 6,000 pounds was sent to the
smelter, the returns from which
wen- most gratifying, giving 280
ounces in silver aud 82.80 in gold
to the ton.
The lead at the time   the   above
shij ment was made was about two
feel wide carrying a  paystreak   of
from three to four inches  of wv\
high grade oie.   A few weeks ago
w.u'k wax commenced in the lower
{timrretiltid  after drifting to  the
right for ah ��ut   fifteen   feet,   two
feet of ore was struck, the assays on
which gave 800  ounces  silver,   $7
gold, 3  per cent,  copper   aud  35
p**r  cent.   lead.      Since  then   the
work has been   vigorously  pushed
along ami  already about ten   tons
of ore are lying   in   the  orehouse
awaiting shipment)    Tne   rawhid-
en will   conn ence  next week to
run the ore down to   the   railroad
aud as soon as a sufficient quantity
of ore has been taken out a carload
shipment will  be  made.    Already
several carloads of ore   is in sight
and ten men are employed   taking
it out si that it will   be  no  great
time before another shipment will
lie made.
Another tunnel has been com
nienced about 100 feet below the
one from which the great bulk of
ore has been taken, and other steps
for the rapid development of this
tine iiitle property are being taken
ami it will be pretty safe to say
that long before the rawhiding
season has closed the Cordelia will
have taken its place among the
shippers of the Slocan.
A large amount of the stock of
this company has been placed at
I'J A cents and it is extremely probable, as the work of development
proceeds and the mine continues
to increase in value that the stock
will make a considerable jump in
value. One thing is tolerably certain, aud that is, that this property possesses both the quantity nnd
quality of ore necessary to placing
it very high up ou the list of our
shipping properties.

A IVni.ir meeting should be

Thk iuHux of people into  the
Slocan dining the last month has
been something astonishing, as
each day passes, it adds to the
list of new arrivals. Sandon is the
objective point for tie most of
these new* comers and notwithstanding the increased hotel accommodations sleeping room- are
by no means easily obtained. The
coming season, we predict. ���Will1 be
one of unexampled activity in
mining circles in the Slocan and
as Sandon is in the heart of this
great mining district, next season
will see it tin- biggest and area til-
iest town in the Kootenav.
Thr establishment of a mining
association in the Slocan is one of
the most iinuoifant need- of this
great mining section. It would
do more to discourage wildcitting
and promote legitimate mining
operations than anything elae.
From the association could be obtained authentic information eon-
cerniug the mines ami prospects of
the country, and their reports
wonld have a great influence in
advertising the resource* of the
country, and bring them prominently to tiie attention of the in*
vestlng public, if we do not take
these step- to make tiii- section
the scene of bona tide mining
operations, now while we have a
chance, the spurious stock jobber
will be insinuating himself into
our midst and bring the name of
the Slocan into disrepute by his
shady transactions.    We do not
think that it is the main object of
this section to compromise its
futute in order to enrich the stock
gambler, and the sooner we take
steps to prevent him from commencing his hurtful operations the
better it will be for every one COD*
cemed. and iu no better way can
this be prevented than by the formation of a mining association.

The Infaaay   of Wealth
The morn I leprosy which tbe pos-
session of immense wealth germinates
in the individual is exemplified by
recent disclosures in the city of New
York. Tbe sons of millionaires oi
that latter day production of Sodom
and Gomorrah have grown so blase
in ordinary vice that they now cm-
ploy agents to secure young girls
whose icverty drives them to such
extremes tiiat they  consent to dance
in an entirely nude condition before
tlie lecherous scions of the American
nobility in tlieir jrivate club*. The
exposure of this particular phase of
the depravity of the ulcerated and
morally caiKsarous thing called society
was brought about by an affidavit
made by a poor girl whose father
l>ecanie aware of the proposition
made and who insisted on exposing
the bestial orgies of the voung whelps
ofthe Four Hundred. rUit the power
of wealth is so gnat that nothing has
come of the ex|*osure, the press of
New York remaining silent or throw*
ing discredit 00 all uttemi*ts to probe
the Waslly matter to the bottom.
Aral yet in the face of such examples as this there are those who
wonder that iIhc spirit of revolution is
in the minds of the millions whose
iinre*|uiu*d toil is the source of the
in ill tons ires fortune which is used to
degrade, damn and destroy the
daughters of tlte |��oor.
The llubonlc   Plague.
The fact that two cases of bubonic
plague have developed in Ixmdon is a
reminder that the Kastern epidemics
too frequently girdle the earth in
running tlieir course, as did lagripi>e.
which was first beard from in Kussia.
We are exposed on two sides io invasion by the Imbonie plague, which
is the "Mack death" which in 1666
killed K-UU) Englishmen.
In all violent outbursts of bttbook
plague rats seem to be first seized,
and their death in great numbers
always proceeded by a few days
correspond ing ravages among human
ladings The swarming rats, dying
by thousand*, were the first warning
tlie Chinese had tint the epidemic
was ui*>n them. Prom China the
disease got to Konnosa ami the
Malay peninsuU. The Ja|>ancac,
with their modern learning, kept the
deadly invadercomjvaratively at l��a>;
luit tiie disease ere}* into India and
spread with frightful rapadity. In
India, as in China, the advent of the
plague was heralded by an epidemic
among rats.
The feature of the disease is the
suddenness of attack. The first symptom is usually a Chill. Then follows
acute nervousness, with fever that
lenOI the temperature to from 1U> to
Id? decrees. Headache, thirst and
intense |win in the uj��|*��r part ot the
abdomen follow. Stinky presplratloTj
exudes irom the pores and then follow
the glandular swellings from which
the disease takes its name. These
OOCUT in the groin or neck or under
the armpits The more of them there
are   tbe   less  dangerous the attack.
Dark trots appear on the victim just
before dissolution.
An eminent.fajvanesebacteriologist
who studied in EaVOpO Under Koch
has discovered the microlte ot "black
death," ami his discovery was confirmed by IVnfesM.r Qsrafn, formerly
attached to the Pasteur Labratory, in
I aris. The bacillus is short, thick,
easy of culture, and when inoculated
on guinea pigs, kills them in twenty-
four hours.

1 sec the love that holcleth me ;
The look that, lighting, learns to bless
The little daily tenderness;
Smiles without words j the sweet sure
Is the Pioneer  House of the City
Which says in silence, I am thine,
Returning lbecmet nt the door ;���
Alas, for those which run do more !
Ah me, for lips that whispered "Hear!
Earth is all heaven,tor thou art here,"
I see a figure like a stone ;
The house where one sits on alone.
0 Godi have pity ! for I Bee
The desolated needing me.
Dying eyes, what do yon sec ?-*-
1 sic the love that taketh me,
Load in the breakers, soft in song.
Ever the summons calleth strong.
1 see upon an unknown strand
The signal ot a distant Hand.
The leaf is out. tlie bud is out.
Floods ot May colors float about,
The   pulse   leaps  high, the  heart is
\ oung,
The sweetest chimes arc yet mining,
My bravest deeds are yet unsung.
My bravest deeds I ever did :
And. struggling with the coffin lid,
Hopes, dreams and joys, and  happy
Start,   throbbing, to   live   down  the
Almighty'. Listen! [am dost,
Vet spirit am I: so I trust
Let come what may. of lite or death. ;
I trust Thee with my sinking breath. |
I trust Thee though I sec Thee not
In heaven or earth, or any spot
1 trust Thee till I shall know why
There'b one to live and one to die.
I trust Thee till Thyself shall prove
Thee Lord of lite, and death and love.

(Iilnrse In  Toronto.
Toronto, ucconling to the Su-ir,
pnblished in that city, is h.tving a
wste ofthe Chinese trouble. The Star
The alarm which has been aroused
among civilized laundry men and
their employes in Toronto, "as related
on tbe flrat page of to -day's Star, is
not groundless.
The laundrymen have seen their
nusiness slipping away. The employes have found work growing
very scarce The Star knows of one
place where scores of employes have
been dismissed from lack of work.
The cause of this has been the
quick and quiet influx of Chinese,
who, having been driven from Montreal, have gathered in Toronto,opened
little hand laundries, arc living more
cheaply than decent white people
can live, dozens in one small house.
The evil, which has been so pro
nouueed in British Columbia, has
been brought right home to Toronto
people, It mav shock a number of
the champions of the Chinese rate,
who have hitherto denounced the exclusion taxation of the almond eyed
cheap laborers, but this city eannot
afford to allow any more people to be
thrown out of work, and must devise
some means ot keeping the Chinamen
We wish no ill to Toronto, but \\c
would like to see not only her laundrymen but many others of her
population get such a squeeze from
Chinese cheap labor as would enable
them to realize the condition to which
affaire have Wen brought on this
coast There would lie a sudden tie-
crease of the blatant babbling a'out
the hsrmf ulness of exclusion acts

Dead wood, S.D.��� The most r liable
advices and estimates for the Black
Hills for the year just passed are that
its mineral production was not less
than ���9,50X000, (>f this gold was
$8,240,1*JO, silver and copper, as by
products, the remainder. It is par*
fectly safe to estimate the production
of this year at H2.000.000, and the
projects under way tor additional
smelting and milling capacity, to be
ready sometime in 189$ will give a
capacity for the following year of not
less than 115,000,000. These figures
are regarded as conservative, and
make no account of projects under
consideration bat not assured.
In the Flora trroup. Ragged Top-
several hundred |*minds Of ore have
been taken out and sacked, valued at
#1,100 to the ton. The find was made
at a depth ot fifty five feet, antl in
the same character, of (fane rook as
all tha RagaTed Top ores. The Rag
ffedTop(iold Mining company has
received smelter returns trmn its first
shipment, amounting to ��71 to the
ton. The Nancy Hanks and MaudS.
have been sold to Mclaachlan and
Hyman, and shallow open cuts have
given assays of from P.* to ?20. A
man sinking for a |*ost for a building
close to a boarding-house, found a
fissure vein, and it is lieing opened.
At the Ellenburg fraction, recent
assays show $*" to the ton. At the
new town of Balmoral, the third started at the camp, lots that sold a few
weeks ago for ffiO are now going
rapidly at 1100. Kverything is now
on the boom order, buildings are
going up on all sides; boarding
shanties, hastily put up with a few
boards, are jammed ; and the pro
ducing mines are Increasing their
output. It is now estimated that
aliout 100 tons of ore are going out
weekly, valued at from I4.00C to **,-
500.   .
A Vary fine atopcof oie has lieen
unearthed at the Golden Slipper, at
Hill City, from which ore valued at
$466 to the ton is being taken. If the
chute runs up as may lie reasonably
expected, it will Ik? worth not less
than 110,000.
The Keystone mine, at Keystone, is
likely to Ik; sold iu a few days to liar-
tics who will develop it more rapidly
than ever.
Machinery has lK;en received at
Qalena for the remodeling ol Hie mill
there to an eighty stamp and other
very extensive improvements for the
tJnion Hill company are begun.
Since the discovery that gold existed in the lime rock formations, the
(Jold Tan and Ixmg Valley coiiqianies,
that have been able to do nothing
but the assessment work required by
law for the i��nst many years,   have
sunk inu> the diMcarded rock and
found, in one case, rock of a value of
��10, and in another of from 140 to
J700. These com pa n ies were nppoi.
ed to Ik* wildcat, aud it eras oof
thought they "arould ever amount to
anything. The lime rock was n.��t
regarded as a possible medium for
rich ores.

Oil Fialda o< Eaat Kootenay
Oue of the various resources of
East Kootenay waiting for  devel*
opment id the petroleum   found i*i
the Flathead valley, iu the  south,
eastern   portion   of   this   district.
This is  a  section   of the  country
but little known, and is  separated
t'roui the remainder of  the district
I'Y   a   high   rant:**   ��l   mountaius.
The natural outlet of the valley is
down   the   Flathead    River   into
Montana, and ttie nearest railroad
is   the   Great   Northern.      Some
years ago attention   was  called to
this section through the  finding of
crude oil iu the possession ot some
Stony Indians who annually hunt*
���*d in this valley,  and   they   v*.erc
induced   to   show    some    miners
where they obtained tbe oil, which
they   (the Indians)  were    in   the
habit of using as a   medicine  for
complaints of ��ll kinds.    The surface indications are good, and two
different qualities of ��>il have been
obtained.    On Kishneeiia Creek, a
short distance north of the   international  boundary   line,   a   black
oil   similar   to  the  Pennsylvania
and  Ohio oil   is  fonud.     But on
Sage creek some eight miles north,
there is found an oil that is nearly
pute of a light yellow color, which
will burn in a lamp as it  comes
from the ground.    Close hy  there
is natural gas escaping  from  the
bedrock  which   burns   freely   on
ignition.    Some of this oil, sent to
the Geological Museum at Ottawa,
caused     considerable   excitement
and comment and was pronounced
a fraud on account  of its  purity.
I>r. Selwyu,   head  of  the  department, made a special   trip  to  the
valley and was  surprised   t.��   find
the oil genuine, and also  that thin
��� >il was found in the Cambrian
formation which was something
unknown as oil hitherto  discover-
��� d hasbeeu iu Trenton Limestone.
Directly due east of Sage creek,
and on the eastern slope of the
Rocky Mountains in Alberta Territory, there are plenty of surface
indications of crude oil. And the
inding of these indications over
such a large area, aud in the same
'ormation would go to show thai
there is a large oil held awaiting
capital to develop it and we may
expect that in the near future the
oil fields of East Kootenay will be
known all over the world.
