On top in ground many improvements are noticed, chief among
which are the erection of a new
bonk house, nnd the placing in
position ofthe boiler and niiiehin
try ofthe air compressor plant to
be Deed in No. a level. The hunk-
house is one of the best in tin*
Slocan and is a two.story building
94x50 f.'ct and capable ol aecoui-
modating W) men. It is divided
on the lower storv into a bath-
room, dining-room, sitting-room
aud kitchen, the upper story being
set apart for sleeping accommodations. The whole building is well,
lighted and commodious ami will
no doubt be duly appreciated by
the men employed on the property.
The pay-roll of this   mine   is  the
largest iu the country, some 111
men being employed iu the mill
and in and around the mine.
Sapphire and Gam   Bonded
The Sapphire and (Jem, two
claims adjoining the Slocan Hoy
on Payne mountain were bonded
this a*eek toC. K. Hammond, who
I* representing the Uamsuall Min-
Ing aud Milling Co., of Income.
The amount of the bond was
��10,000, of which lo percent, was
paid down, the balatiee iu payments embracing a term of six
months. Four men were Set to
work .esterday on the property
and it id expected that a earloud
of ore will be shipped from it in
the next thirty davs. Considers*
hie development work has already
been done 00 this* property, including three tunnels which will
aggregate about S00 feet. Mr
Rauisdall, of Tacoma. is now in
Victoria making the necessary ar
railgeilientS towards having the
Company registered mid. r British
Columbia laws. ('has. Hammond
lias been appointed trustee for ihe
company here aud will look after
the management   nf the property.

about two and one-half feet of fine
galena and carbonates in a ledge

exposed. The ore house con.
tains about twelve tons of nigh
grade ore. but no inoie will be
taken out until the present system
of development now being prosecuted on the property is coinftlot-*
e<l. Tills proposition, if it fulfills
it* promise, will he one of the
most valuable in the district, not
only from |*>int of ore value but
from its proximity to the railroad,

K. tv. S. depot hardly 100 yards intervenes.

Sandon, 11. C. Kdilur and  Ifgr
VViikn Sandon is incorporated
we can hope to have our streets
improved, sufficient fire protection, a better aduiinistr.ition ol
the sanitary regulations and many
other things too numerous to
mention. All we can do is to
fervently ejaculate, "CJud sjierd
the happy day.**
It is really   laughable the  idea
that many people  entertain as   to
the   desirability  of   Sandon   as  a
place of residence.    It is currently
believed on   the outside  that   the
inhabitants   el   Sandon    exist   on
pork and beans washed  down with
forty-rod of extreme  potency,   and
that the  sun   never  shines  her**,
Xovv we would like to disabuse the
good people of that belief.     We do
not deny that   on  some   occasions
the boys  fill   up on   Slocan   nerve
tonic and want to eat a tenderfoot,
out of sheer exuberance of spirits,
but  the tenderfoot   need   not   be
eaten  if his   running  powers approach   anyways      near     to    the
standard.      We   often    vary    the
pork aud  beans  diet   by   a   little
beef, and the forty rod   with Oo(Fe<
and it is even asserted   that   ipiail
on toast  is  not unknown   on   the
bills of fare of  our   restaurants,
Our citizens wear Idled   shirts  on
special occasions, and a   plug   hat
fails  to   inspire   them   with   san
guiuary emotions.    We have good
whisky, better water and as pretty
women as there is in the   country.
We, smoke good   cigars,   part   our
hair in the (tenter, and  are   regul
arly told to keep our feet  on   the
sand and avoid Hades on Sundays
by our religious pilot.      Wc   have
ocular proof that  there   are   spots
on the Hun   and   occasionally   we
have  an   opportunity  of  walking
with our host girls bv the witching
light of the moon.    All   these   we
have, and because we  have a little
more money than falls to the tot of
the average man iu  other   places,
we do not think that the   linger of
scorn should be pointed at   us,  for
we cannot   help   it.     And   if   we
could only get  a  Toronto  man to
help us take  care of some  of   it
our   cup   of  happiness  would   he
filled to overflowing,
It is passing strange why Ottna
dians are so blind   to   ihe  adv.in
tageeof their own country, mor*
especially of tins portion of  it.
Here we   have   the   spectacle ot  .1
district conceded to be tbe richest
silver mining camp in  the  world*
sending their ores to he treated ill
the   United    States,    hundreds    ol
miles away from where they are
mined. |- it because we have not
within our own ooiinds   all the fa*
quirements for the succeasful
operation of a swelter?   No,  nich
cannot be the case. IVa have tin-
IMoi Bay Smelter, tlie 11 ill Mines

It would not be fair to conclude
that Wilfred Laurier*s refusal of a
title is due to an uirvillinguess to
wear honors of British origin.
The speeches and public lite ot the
Premier are entirely lacking in indications ot an anti-Hritish sentiment
or sympathy.
The testimony ot Mr. Lauder's
public speeches and public lite will
plead for him against the partisan
Bttspioian that dislike of titles is
arotber name for hisdislike of Britain.
Canadians who are British in all
their sympathies shire the dislike ot
knight hood which is said to influence
Wilfred Laurier. Alter all, the posi
lion wnicl. Mr. Lenrtef occupies as
the chosen leader ot a great nation
can borrow no grandeur from the
order of St. Michael and St George.
A title which, is freely bestowed on
third and fourth-rate English dignitaries is not a mark of distinction
s.iited to the rank ot a man who is
fitted to be Premier or Canada.
The Canadian sentiment which
objects to the undue muitipliiv'ion >f
titles is in no sense an anti-Imperial
sentiment. There are Canadians
who approve of titles, and they are
net better Canadians or truer British
subjects than the Canadians who are
opposed to titles. The offer of rank
as a member ot her Majesty's Privy
Council, accompanied by no patent
knigluhoid, would I* a suitable
recognition of Canada s greatness, and
is Mr. Luirier refused that honor he
Blight expose himself to just attack.

SKAKCHIM,   FOR   OHE.
Hookefelfer r���>WH Looking for  An
other    Mountain   Iron.
Dnluth, Minn. -Thoiio-h the Kocke
feller company has sold its biggest
ore deposit, the .Mountain Iron, to the
Carnegie 8teel company, it evidently
has not the slightest intention ot'.-iban
doning or decreasing its mining operations. It owns vast, tracts ot land on
the iron bearing belts, supposedly
rich in ore, that have not been explored at all, and the probabilities
ire that it may find as big a mine as
the Mountain Iron oil these lands,
judging from past experiences.on the
Mesaba. At any rate. It will make
the attempt, aud has already set one
crew at work exploring (or ore at
Mckinley, while others will follow at
other points.
Tbe probabilities that the Hesseiner
ore \khA will go to pieces as a result ol
the Carnegie deal is worrying small
operators in tion-liesseuier orea close
to the Bessemer limit on all the Lalce
Superior ranges. With the pool
agreement in operation, tbeee o|>er
a tors, by cutting the Bessemer price
a trifle, could be sure of a market, but
with free competition it will be a case
ofthe survival of the fittest, and the
big- mines will take roach ofthe
business that has been going to the
smaller ones.
The Cincinnati mine at Hiwabic has
resumed work on a larger scale and
will employ men all winter stock
piling ore.
Shaft Xo. 1 of the Adams mine
burnt out a day or two ago and is a
complete wreck. Though the fire
was discovered in good aaaaon, all
efforts to stop it were useless. The
flames shot seventy-five feet into the
air and the water that was poored on
them was simply made into steam
and aided the heat of tbe cciiflatga
tion. The shaft-house was m t fire to
and mined. About sixty men are
thrown out of employment by the
fire.
TheF ayal has begun sinking a
second shaft, which will greatly
facilitate work It is hoisting ab.in
1,500 tons daily.

A MINING WONDER
Something New in the Way of a Gold
and Silver  Concentrator-
Arizona milling men  are  much
i itereajted in a new gold and silver
concentrator that has made its ap-
[learatice in Chicago, and is shortly
expected to materialize around the
tailings dumps of the   West.    The
machine  is    built    much   on   tli.-
plau of the well-known   De   Laval
cream separator.    A until I disk on
which   the auriferous   slimes are
fed by pipe is revolted at a rate of
several   thousand    revolutions   a
minute, and the  lighter elements
are thrown oft', eutirely Treeing the
heavier metallic  portion.    A   test
of the machine   recently  made in
Nevada demonstrates that   it   had
actually saved the entire sample
assay value of Ihe heap of tailings
treated.     Another  marvel   is   the
speed of tlie process, the test noted
having been  made  at  the rate of
200 tons of tailings per day.    Perhaps   the  only   drawback   to  this
process is the difficulty of securing
adequate power.    Though the ma
chine that ran   the   21X1   tons   p--r
day is a very small affair, easily toj
be transported, not  less  than   150J
horse-power   is   required   for   tin
operation.
Canadian Mines
A careful compilation of capita!
accredited to all chartered gold
and silver mining companies in
Canada gives a total of over 1290.*
000,000* British Columbia, of
course, heads the list in number
and wealth of its mining companies,
while Ontario, with its scircely
less extensive dejiosits of free-milling ore in Rainy Kiver district,
comes second. By provinces the
figures stand: British Columbia,
$266,325,075} Ontario. $3i ,004,900;
New Brunswick, H,030,000; Manitoba, 150,000,

Sister Irene, of Portland, Ore.,
who have had many years of
hospital experience, purpose starting an hospital either in Sandon
or Kaslo. Th��*y are at present
looking over tlie ground in order
to form an opinion as to which
place is the more suitable for their
purpose.

being converted into a "thing of
beauty anda joy forever" under the
skillful brush of M. D. Criderman.
The mountains on which some of
the principal mines are located
and the position of their workings
are being depicted very skillfully
in oils. The work is exceedingly
well executed and rehVets great
ciedit on the artist.
