A careful evamination of the abandoned Silver Cliff mine showed Mr. Johnson's practised eye that it bad been an

the broken, splintered, crumbling rook.
He mejsnred Uie din of every seam that

Three years ago it looked as though
the game was won. An ore-body wss
tapped which Wemed to be a great feeder of some subterranean lake of silver.
More men were put to work on this,
while the shaft went sinking ever downward. They followed this silver brook,
as it miglit be termed, in all its twist-

FICTITIOUS   PROSPKRIT1*.
The cry of prosperity is wide
spread in these days, bat many persons carry in their minds a mistaken
idea ot its meaning. To the specula
tor in stocks it means a rise in tbe
particular thing he fancies, although
it may have only a speculative value
which would render a higher quotation injurious to public prosperity.
To many tboassnds of working-men
there comes prosperity, according to
their conception, when their wages
rise, no matter whether other wages
rise in harmony or the general cost cf
living increases more than the earn
ings. The high wages paid to miners
on the Yakon is mainly due to the
cost of living. There the necessaries
of life cost about twenty times as
much as they do where miners wages
sre $3.50 a day, and consequent*- $20
��� day is scant remuneration. There
is a great army of farmers to whom
prosperity means tbe accidently con
cnrrenceof good crops and exceptionally high prices, and they do not
stop to think that it means the reverse
of prosperity to those who have t*>
bny, and also tbat a general prosperity can onlv be based upon fair
returns for regular and constant in
dnstry.
In general the tendency is to take
quite too narrow and indiviloa!
views of the conditions which are
called prosperous. Prosperity is not
real if it is not general, (ht Ins by one
set of men at the expense of another
do not improve the condition of the
country in the least. If the higher
wages, rendered necessary by the
exceptional cost of food and the advanced prices of necessaries, take
from part of the people in order to
give to another, there is not a step
taken toward general prosperity. In
mining the road to prosperity lies
- through honest methods in which the
investing public can have confidence,
and judged by this standard it would
appear that the over-reaching selfishness of some of oar pablic men is not
calculated to encourage pablic faith
in provincial raining methods.
Rascality in high places threatens
to seriously injure our mining industry. The scandalous insinuations of
political wire palling and corruption
asserted by more than one of the recently floated Klondike tondon promotions is not well calculated to
attract British capital. The British
public arc not likely to be allured
into investing their money in a
colony whose prominent pablic men
assert that they have a special "pull"!
with government departments. Sach
statements are a libel on Canada and
should be resented by public denouncement by the head of the government il not by public proseeutiou
fbr libeling the government.
We referred recently to the re
marks of the chairman of the Klou
dike, Yakon and Stewart Pioneers
Co., of London, wbo spoke ot Col.
Domville of tbe Dominion Parliament
wbo is a director of the company, as
a member of Parliament with a
"pull." We nave also. tbe assertion
of Sir Charles Topper that his com
pany was promised the active support
of both governments, Dominion and
Provincial. Unfortunately for ourselves we know bat too well bow
strong is tbe pall of this pot-banting
politician, bat it is not nice to be so
advertised abroad. There is a great
deal that we know of the power of
what the "pair has effected, but
there is much more of tlte same sort
that is concealed. We know that
over twenty-five square miles ot the
richest placer ground in Cariboo ia,
thanks to political "pull,* in the
hands of exploiting corporations, from
which the practical miner is excluded. If the pretension of these
influential wire-pullers are worth
anything, there will not be much of
the Yukon or Klondike left to the
honest prospecting miner.

Either the president of the United
States is a natural born man without
a mind of own, or his political friends
are naturally making htm one. He
has been busy since his inauguration
trying to get bimetallism by inter
national agreement He asked Congress to vote $109,000 to defray the
expenses of s commissi m which he
appointed and sent to Kngland on the
sole errand uf getting that country to
agree to a bimetallic coinage law.
England wouldn't do it, and hi-
effort waa a $100,000 failure.
Betore his bimetallic cotumission
had reached borne McKinley** secre
tary of the treasury submitted tocon-
grass a bill, the sole purpose of which
was, to use the secretary's own
words "to commit the country more
thorooghly to the gold atandara'
Again on December _*8th a meeting
of 500 representative Indiana repab-
licanssras held in Indianapolis. It
was addressed by United Slates Sen
ator Fairbanks of that state who announced that he bore a personal
message direct trom the president
He said:
"The republican party, with Mc
Kinley as our leader, intends to keep
faith, to preserve the gold standard
unimpaired to the American people.
I saw the president but a few day*
before coming here. I asked him ii
he bad any message for the republic
ans of Indiana. He commissioned
me to say to you: 1 am going to keep
the bond. I am going to vindicate
the sound money plank in the St.
Louis platform.*"
These later statements would In
dicate trial ihe president had changed
his views, snd was no longer a bi
uietallist���eltber by international
agreement or Independently. Bat, tt
we are to believe still later reports,
be is yet an 'Irttornationar depend
eoey. Senator Chaijdler of .New
Hampshire, an ardent IniernaUonal
bimetallism wss in conference last
Monday with the jtresident Upon
emerging from tbe White honse be
said : The president stands firmly in
favor of international bimetallism, aa
promised by tbe St Louis platform."
Senator Chandler added his opinio
that 'the president is as *arnesMy in
favor of bimetallism, tlte ass of Mb
metals ss standard money." as the
senator himself.

The   production   of   gold  increase*!
tvily in 1897 in nearly all purts of tlte
rorld. Over 90 per cent, of tlie total
y is contributed by seven geograph-
divisions, the United Htatea, Trans-
Aostralia, Russia, British India,
tnada aod Mexico, and of these every
>ne showed an increase over the previous
tr, and in most cases a large increase.
Ths reault is a gold production larger
-.an ever before recorded, and twice
tat of only ten years ago. it it itnpossi-
|ble to attribute tbe great gain in pro-
tduction in 1897 to any special cause.
[Tbeie was, it is true, tbe new discovert*
in British America (Uie Klondike) which
attracted world-wide attention and excited a popular interest reminiscent oi
1JM9, but It is estimated that tbe actual
production of the new diggings haa not
esceeded 12,000,000, and this is only a
small part of the world's increase last
year. Tbe latter is, in tbe opinion ot
the Engineering and Mining Journal,
due to tne continuation of tlie conditions
favorable to gold production which have
been operative during the lost five or six
years, namely, the cheapening of production by 'improvementa in mining
methods and metallurgical practice, the
diversion of attention from stiver mount*
to gold mining since the general loss of
profit in the former, and the growing
tendetn-y of capital to seek inveetment it*
gold mining as an industry wliich aime-i
at tlie pro* fuel ion of a metal tiiat. nom
in.illy at least, is not sutijeet to market

The author of "Historic Homes iu
Washington" has added an interesting
incident to the story of Daniel Webster*
cotirt-ahip. While he was yet a yonng
lawyer, he met in Portsmouth, N. H.,
Miss Grace Fletcher, and before long
became �� frequent visitor at her fathers
house. < tne evening he had been assisting her in untying skeins of silk,
when he suddenly stopped, and, look
iug into her face, very earnestly, he
said : "Grace, we have, been engaged
in untying knots Shall we not see if
we can tie a knot which will not untie
fu* a lifetime?" He took a niece of
tape from her work basket antl partly
tied a knot of peculiar style: then,
stimewhnt baslifully, he passed it to her
to finish With heiifhtened color nnd
trembling lagers Miss Fletcher completed the knot Such was the proposal
and such the ratification of their engagement Many years subsequently,
after the great statesman's deiith, a
little box was found in his private desk,
upon which was written in his own band
"pre* ions documents " When this was
opened there were disclosed the early
inters of his courtship and the piece of
tapo.   The knot had never been untied.
Moody ��>n  Sunday   Labor.
���'There are one or two principles
which apply directly to the frequent
difficulties wliich meet the Christian
young man." writes Dwlght L. Moody,
���in Sunday labor. There is a certain
amount of work that must l��e done on
Sundav, both for the needs and health
of a community But in necessary
work it should be dispatched as quickly
as possible, and  not  be used
excuse for unnecessary work.
���'When the Lord ordained a day of
rest it was for mans best interests,
physically, mentally and spiritually,
and any man who barters tne day of
rest to gratify the selfish interests of
another is always the loser. Man needs
for the welfare of- his soul; as well as
his body, at least one* day in seven to
devote to its special needs. I know,
from personal experfenee,.tltat no man
can work seven day* in the week, not
even in religious work, and do the best
work he is capable of, either for God or
man. And 1 have no right to take

That I'm '-Uttle BpeeebM''- tally ,f tywu.
But lam all the same, and I travelled
A mighty long tUttaiK-e to claim
A shake o' the hand of the author
Who first introduced me to fame.
I wanted to make a short visit
Aud chat for a minute or two.
For I thought to pay my respects tu him

And I hadn't a doubt ol my welcome
For one who had held a pen
So simple and unaasumtn' and close
To the heart o' his fellow men.
And I pictured a pretty cottatre -,
The kind that the poets like.
And a garden patch and a windin' lane.
To remind htm o' dear oW Pike.
And I thought that his eyes would sparkle
As he gave me a grip and told
How much he preferred plain country friends
To society, proud and cold.

When the girl that you've worked and saved for

Cheap Paper.
It is a strange fact that while paper is
being used for dozens of purpose-* formerly monopolised by wood, or even a
harder material, such as car wheels,
boxes, barrels, tubs, pails, etc.( wood is
rapidly driving other ingredients to the
wall in the manufacture of nearly all
cheaper grades of paper. Unfortunately wood-pulp paper is often used for
more important purposes, ami only a
few years will elapse before documents
and books of value printed upon it, will
become so discolored and decayed as to
be worthless.
As illustrating the excellence ofthe
paper, which is made, from unused linen
scraps, upon which Bank of England
notes are printed, it is stated that when
one of these notes is twisted into a rope

to be the jov-givers of the home and of
the coramuhitv. Just as truly as the
beauty of the butterfly's wings and the
colors of the flowers are to gladden the
eve, and the song ofthe bird is to stir
the heart, so voting men and maidens,
in the beauty and strength of their
clear, happy voices, are to refresh the
spirits of the careworn. Young people
have a distinct mission, not onlv to be
happv themselves, but to make all
around them happier, and lirst and
principally* in their homes."
Webster's Last Words Baited.
Some years ago an eastern farmer in
trying to repeat Webster's dyiug words
"I still live," gave an amusing rendering of the spirit, if not tho exact lettrr
of the phrase. A gentleman had remarked to ihim, "Life is very uncertain." "Oh, yes," replied the farmer,
"that's true, 'every wotd of it; and by-
theway. Captain, that makes tne think
of what one of your big Massachusetts
men said when he died a spell ago "
"Who is it?" inquired the Captain.
"Well, I don't jist call bis name now.
but at any rate, he was a big politician*
er, and lived near Boston somewhere.
My newsjiaper said that when he died
the Boston folks nut bis image in their
windows and haa a funeral for a whole
day "
"Perhaps it was Webster," suggested
the Captain
"Yes, that's his name! Webster.
General Webster. Strange I couldn't
think on it afore. But he got off a good
thing just before he died. He rix up in
bed and says he, "1 ain't dead yet."

A minster who used to preach in
Somerville had a little boy.. A few davs
before his father left the citv to goto
his new parish one of his' neighbors
said to the little bov : "So vour lather's
going to work in New Bedford, is be?"
The little boy looked up wonder in <**
"Oh, no, only preach," he wild.
"It is queer,"_aid Mrs. Bloocher,"that

enough to mail them."

All silent people can seem conventionally elegant. A groom married A
rich lady, tie dreaded the ridicule of
the guost* whom his new rank assembl-

The groom took the bint, and was
always considered one of the most

THE PAYSTREAK, 8AND0N, B. C, JANUARY 22, im.

SANDON MAN IN TACOMA.
Ad. Hellmers ts Reported bq the
Tacoma Leder.
silver dis-
the mines
there of which so little is heard are
some of the best -properties in Canada," said Ad. Hellmers, of Sandon,
B. C, at the Tacoma last night'
"English investors have put two
million dollars into the district within the past two months and all the
mines are working full crews. Tbe
number of dividend payers Is large.
The ore is silver and lead, though in
the lake district some gold is found.
The Lemon and Ten Mile creeks in
the Slooan lake district are coming
up well. Tbey are showing high
grade diver anil go-Id ore bodies.
"The miners in Sandon and the
surrounding district will have the
gold erase and fully half of them
will go to Alaska in the spring.
There are 2900 men in the mines, all
receiving good wages and it can
safely be said that 1200 of these will
go north. The men in our mine���
the Slocan Star, have not been cashing their checks for months. They
have been carrying them around in
their pockets lest the money in their
possession should be spent* and they
would not have money to go to
Alaska.
"One man in particular���he is a
spendthrift-���came to me a few
months ago and asked me to turn
his checks over to a friend who would
hold them for him. He wanted me
to refuse to give him money on any
Sretext and on Christmas eve the
rst opportunity came. I would not
five him a cent and a few days after
e came to me and thanked me. He
bas a good stake saved. Theexodus
from Sandon will surely result in
the increase of wages. We will not
be able to get men into the district
in any other way.
"But the mines in the Slocan district are rich and there are no better
properties anywhere. The Slocan
Star has Just increased the capacity
of its mill and the eighty men laid
off while the improvements have
been made have returned to work.
We have a vein forty feet thick in
places. Our mine is one of the bard-
ess to work in the whole district.
We have to use a large amount of
powder and the tunnels*-must all be
supported by wooden timbers.
These are hard to get as the timber
has been cut off for a distance of
three miles.
"One of the easiest mines to work
is the great Payne, half of which
was recently purchased by Mr. Mc-
Cane, of Salt Lake City. He paid
but 180,000 for his share, and now
development work on the mine has
proven it to be as great a property
as the Le Roi at Rossland. A vein
of solid ore from one to three and a
half-leet thick has been uncovered,
and all the ore runs about 200 ounces
of silver and 75 per cent. lead.
They need no powder to mine nor
timbers to support the tunnels. They
are taking out 60 tons of ore a day,
-and I have been told that the mine
has declared a dividend of 1100,000
a month. In a recent cross-cut tunnel another vein of solid ore was
uncovered.
"The Reco���Spanish for rich-is
owned by John Harris, a Mr. Kelly
and General Wharton. When I
first went to Spokane Wharton was
called captain. That was before he
was interested in any mine. A short
time after he got his Interest in tbe
Reco and they called him'colonel.
Now that he is a rich man it is gen-1 book in any home or office, not only
eral. A friend of mine saw the returns tVom a shipment of three cars
of ore from this mine and the net
receipts were $12,800.
���The Goedenough is workinjron
the same bed of ore and Is making-
many shipments ami paying hand-
somelv
"The Uttle Ruth, a half a mile
from the Star, was worked for live
years without any returns. Ahout
fifteen months ago Lord Sudley of
London, one of the owner.. eame out
and two-thirds of the mine was
bonded at the ratio of 125,000.
Three months later the hand-holders
threw it up, and it was bonded at
the ratio of 1250,000. A short time
ago half of the mine was sold for
1600,000.
"The Whitewater, on the ereek of
the same name, was purchased six
vears ago for 12500. To-day it is
worth $1,500,000.
"A half interest in the Last Chance
has been sold for $125,000. It has a
four-foot bodv of solid tire running
200 ounces of silver and 75 per cent,
lead."
Mr. Hellmers is on hb first vacation for three years. He will go to
Catalina island in Lower California.
Gone But Not Forgotten.
The bland and childlike smile of
Frank Golden will be seen no more
in our streets. Prank had a friend
buy a ticket and check hb hagga-fir
to kaslo on Tuesday, and to avoid
being overwhelmed by friendly farewells at the station, boarded the
train as it was palling out. He in
said to have had $1500 in his pocket,
and was owing everyone he could.
Some folks thought he was green
but. have changed their opinion and
now think it was thc other man. Up
to the time of the Williams and
Anna nee episode Frank had conducted himself properly, but tbat
seemed to inspire him with ambition
for like fame, and the plea of "not
of age," which released young
Williams, gave Frank the cue for
future action. Henceforth, Frank
as creditor and debtor were two
different persons. He bought goods,
got signers on his notes, borrowed
money, and when asked for payment, smilingly replied: "I am not
of age." If this did not satisfy the,
creditor it satisfied Frank, and no
amount of malediction could ruffle^
his serene and even temper or worry
his conscience..
