The (lalena Farm.
Robt. W. Wilson, traveling cor-
of thc "Mining ami
Scientific Pre**" has been visiting
SUverton and speaks enthusiastically of the  probable future of that
flourishing camp.   Mr. Wilson visited thc Galena Farm and stated yesterday:  "For some time past I have
heen  anxious  to see  the   Galena
Farm, principally on account of the
adverse criticism that  the Galena
Mines Limited has come in for at
the hands of some portion of the
Knglish and local newspaper press.
The princi'tal objection taken has
lieen that the company Is over capitalized, the nominal  capital being
placed  at l��50,OQO,      Mr. C. W.
Callahan allowed me the fullest opportunity for making an investigation, and this is what I found.    The
Galena Mine**, limited, has a thoroughly well prospected and proven
mining property, 200 acreain extent,
containing an  enormous body  of
h-ffh  grade concent rating galena.
At the present working shaft, now
down 200 feet, a level is ahout being
started both   ways  on   the   ledge.
There Is also a drift at the 100 foot
level.   Thc zinc met with near the
surface ha* disappeared, and as soon
as the nec��*s*ary machinery for working on a large scale is  in position
tbe mine will give monthly
more than sufficient to pay satisfact
ory dividends on a mneh larger capitalisation than ��550,000.    At present there is a good steam hoisting
and pumping plant.   This is to be
at onoe ivplaced by water power,
ami a 150 ton concentrator and air
compressor are now on the way to
tin*  mine.    With its ample water
power the mine will be  exceptionally cheap to work.   The working
���.haft is double compartment, and
all tbe development work is of a
most workmanlike ami sul*tantial
description.     The    owners   know
they have a good mine in the Galena
Farm  and  then*  ia no makeshift
work a Unit the  buildings,  machinery or workings.    The money of
the company is being spent economically on substantial improvements,
on which there will require to be no
subsequent tinkering,  and   which
will last during the life of the mine.
Without referring to my notes I cannot give you the actual rlgtirt** of
the underground workings and their
disclosures, but they are sufficient to
warrant tlie  statcmem    that   the
Galena   Kami   Is  a   great   mine.
Mr.    Callahan    makes   no secret
of    the  mine.     On the   contrary
he  Is justifiably proud of   show-
ing It to visitors.    Whatever aome
section of the newspapers may think
of it, the shareholders, who are the
most interested *>arties, will lx�� fully
satisfied with their investment when
the Galena Farm gets in full run-

The I.ir�� Of llnrou OroUluiui Who tiled
In MoqUum.
Helena,  Mont ���Baron   Max   Von
Crotthaua, who died on Clark Brothers
ranch, near Great Falls, Friday^ had
a strange and romantic career,    lie
was only about 35 year* old.    lie
was of a rich, noble, and old family
in Russia, and when he left St.  Pet
eisburg, in 18H5, he was a lieutenant
in thc csar* guard*.   lie was an in
vetcrato gambler, fond ot all kind* of
���port, a favorite with men and the
pet of women.    Ills reputation was
that he went a faster pace than any
other man in bis regiment     That
fsst pace sent the baron to New York.
There he met two Yale men,  Bain-
bridge and W. a Clarke.   Tbey too,
were rather too rapid for the home
circle and their father Anally bought
them a ranch on the Milk River, near
Great Fails.   Ahout tbe only thing
the baron knew by which he could
turn an honest penny was how to ride.
He didn't care to follow the example
of some of his countrymen in this
ountry and turn ruling master, so be
applied to Clark for a job on  the
ranch.   Clark frankly told the lotion
that the only employment that could
lie had on the ranch was that of a
sheep herder, whose **ay was $40 a
month.   Tbe baron agreed to take
ihe job, ami went to Montana at onee.
Before that lie had never known
what It was to dress himself without
Uie  aJMtJstaiwe ��>l  a body servant
When he reached the ranch be
donned thc garb ol a cowboy, took a
herd ot sheep and a shepherd dog and
went out to tlie feeding ground. Nobody <Hi the ranch ever heard him
complain ot the character of his worn,
nor ol the very solitary life he was
compelled to litre. He did whatever
be was told to do, and did it welL
There come* to a cowboy now ami
again the chance to siiow the stuff
there i* in him. Arefra.torv steer,
or a stamped* of a drove of cattle
famishes the element tit danger to
thc cowboy* lite. But to take a doc
lie flock of sheep out to the feeding
grounds and sit round and watch an
Intelligent dog do more than a man
could do in looking out for thc flock,
is work that calls neither for much
intelligence nor much bravery and
furnishes hardly a possible chance tor
adventure, if a man wants to call
another man a bad name be calls
him "a damned sheep herder.** Once
the epithet is ptwted. there is usually
a job for an undertaker.
It wa* **a damned sheep herder,"
then, that tbe scion ofa noble Russian
family and a former lieutenant in
the czar's guard had liccome.
For eleven year*, and until he died
lie did t��*at work, and received tor
his labof $40 a month, payable once
a year In the winter. Then it was,
after pav day, that the naron was
hlmsclt again. As quickly ai he
could pack his trunks, he started for
Helena. Tho drcs* ot the sheep
herder wa* cast aside, and when Von
(Jrotthaiisaynearod In the Montana
capital be was attired as faulllesoly
aa the best,dressed man In New York.
r>crybody of anv prominence In
Helena knew the baron, knew hi*
birth and breeding, and the house ot
every member ofthe Helena ''Four
Hundred'' was open t> him. ror
a Unit a month he would enjoy bis
rehabilitation. He occupied the best
suite of room* in tlie best hotel in
Helena, and plaved faro for an high
stakes as he could. His winnings
were often heavy, but he wn* never
*u ,ied_,�� 8t0P p,ny when be was
ahead of the game. Consequently he
always finished hi* vacation without
enough money to settle his hotel bill.
A man who knew him well told
this story of him yesterday:
'When the baron came to Helena
he would make things lively while
he stayed, and he stayed as long as
his money Iteld out. That was usually about a month. Thc faro bank
dealers looked forward to his coming
because they knew that tbey would
get most of the money he' brought
down from the ranch with him.
"With all his iondness for gambling
and hi* propensities for borrowing
money, be was strictly honest. He
never drew any money at the ranch,
save once a year except to pay tbe
debt* and the loans he made while
on his yearly spree. He never returned to Helena in debt. ������Honorable himself, he expected others to
be honorable with him. When he
found dishonesty he was not slow to
brand it I remember seeing him at
a faro hank one night in the highest
toned gambling joint in Helena.
There were a number of persons present. Sitting next to thc baron was a
young fellow who was drunk, and
who had been losing steadily all the
evening. After a time fome of those
at the table noticed that the baron
seemed to lose interest in his own
play, ami was watching tbe dealer
Intently. Suddenly tbe baron quietly
"Before this g***me goes on you must
pay thc bet ot the gentleman sitting
on my right. You have been stealing his chips for the past hour.'
'The dealer was on his feet in a
moment. Staring at the baron rs
if be would annihilate him, lie exclaimed:
"���You lie! You damned sheep
herder, take that!'
And the dealer had slapped thc
baron's face. The baron never so
much as raised hi* band, although
the room was in an uproar. Looking
at the dealer steadily for a moment
he said, in tlie same quiet tone:
" Oh, yes, Ira a sheep herder,
snd a very good one, I fancy. A
liar, though, 1 am not. You have
insulted me and have assaulted me.
I meet you with your own weapons.
Step out from behind that table, and
we wilt see who can punch the harder."
" "Bravo, baron!' cried a dozen
men.   We're with you to a man.'
"Thank vou gentlemen. It is
really very good ot you, but I need
no assistance. This man lt��ks like
a cur, as he is a thief.'
������The dealer made a sudden movement for his hip pocket. But before
he could draw his pistol, the baron
held two beautiful guns right under
his nose.
"Two can play at most games,

SANDON. B. C., MAY 8, 1897.
There is an old saying that all tha
world loves a lover, and it appears
tbat one who sufficiently loves his
country comes onder this "heading-
Tims the Greek has always been beloved because the man who wore the
name in .ancient times was always
willing to sacrifice himself for the
land of his birth. With one accord
tbe sympathy of tbe more refined ot
the nations which are alleged to be
civilised goes to tbe Greek, not so
much because civilised people like
Greece as tbat they hate Turkey, and
Greece has a historic name. ���
It mutt be remembered that the
Greek of today is not the Greek of
Thermopylae and Marathon, fbr he is
an enthusiastic and somewhat unstable peraon, who is more willing to
lose his life in a fight than to pay his
debt in a commercial transaction. Ha
is so near like the Turk *-��|^���

name, that one feels'a little uncertain
about embracing him as a type of the
oJdSperten race.
While all these facts most be bocoa
in mind, we like Greece because he
is the little fellow and apparently the
under dog in tbe fight. He Is vaatly
outnambered,and if nobody interferes
he will receive a most unmerciful
Yet the name amounts to mneh, and
tbe hatred ot the Turks amounts to
more, and tbe alleged Christianity of
the Greek amounts to most
We need not waste mneh of our sympathy on tbe religious phase of the
question, for all that is possessed of
piety by the average Greek would
neither make or unmake a revival in
a township church.   Like the Turk*,
they are almost altogether formalist*,
and their religion is pot on and off
with their Sunday attire.     King
George is too much of a hero, and bis
sons have been conspicuous in a time
of trial, but they are no more Grecians than the Greeks themselves are
the Inheritors of the blood and tenets
of those who fought the splendid battles against the invaders of old. They
may be able to whip Turkey as Japan whipped China, but on the torfuce
there is no reason to expect It, though
without doubt there are many facts
which would Incline the uninformed
writer and reader to believe that tbey
sre the mere poppets, as also are the
Turk*, of tbe great Powers who surround and influence them.    These
gi-eatPcrweTwrnay permit Greece to
be whipped or insist on Turkey re-
ceiving the thrashing. At this great
distance we can neither tell the true
meaning ot the war nor the probable
outcome of it
Of one thing we may be sure, the
Greek National Society has had a
very large hand in this fight and the
secrecy of its operations and the splendor of its expenditures cannot but excite the admiration of the world. This
society Is composed of rich Greeks
who live In various part* ofthe world
but mostly in England and Turkey.
It Is said by well-informed English
newspapers that their money has
kept Col. Vsssos in Crete and tbe
Greek navy upon the sea, and their
influence is likely to bring help to
.he little warrior who is competing
against such odds. The diplomacy
of this society and tbe interweaving
of relationship which makes the
Greek -Tilers the cousins, or uncle**, or
sons-in-law of everybody amongst the
Powers, may have and effect which
we cannot foresee. All who write,
write in tbe dark; all who read, read
the efforts of those in the dark. But
one thing at least we can corapre
beud, even though we cannot appro
ciatelt aud that Is the horror* of
On those fair plains and in those
magnificent mountain passes,  nnw
never silent, the killing ot men i* goon at an exu*aoi*dmajy rato^ We
TSefleve" that the human heart
loss oTXmf mtiWror tbe brother, the
husband or the son, is a terrible thing,
made >itteoIartv terrible by tha
fact that we cannot bory tbe one we
love and build at least some rode
monument to bis memory. If all Europe Is plunged into war this story of
���laughter will go on until its magnitude appalls us and we think that being killed in battle Is the most honorable and ordinary of deaths.
We In Canada can neither influence
nor understand this whole business-
we can only wait and wonder. In
waiting and wondering perhaps tha
price of wheat will interest as more
than the stream* of blood and tsars
which are started by the cry ot war.
Very well, it to only the old atory of
tha now somewhat aged earth; nothing very mneh matter* which does
not happen to ourselves, and our good
impulses and our pacific desires are
very unlikely to extend into saying
or doing anything which will cause
the market to drop.
This is wicked and worldly, bat It.
I* true.   If Greece and Turkey and!
the nations of Europe see fit to fight, |
that most pacific of all creature, the
farmer, will plough, and *ow, and
reap, and chuckle whan he market*

are impassable. A dirt road badly
made iu the first place and kept op
badly-or not at all-is always an
expensive affair to those who are
obliged to use it, and is softer**) to
exist generally because very few peo.
pie realise how moch money a good
road would save for them. Tbe
movement tor better roads has had
good effects in many parts of the country and its further extension is very
desirable. Of course, there are districts which must suffer on account ot
their location, which makes building
very costly, or because their traffic is
too small to warrant the incurring of
moch expense; hot there are many
where a united effort could secure a
great Improvement In this respect In
many mining district* also road material 1* plentiful and tbe cost ot making good highways would not be
great. Tbe addition of .MX) pounds to
the average load of a team may not
seem very important by itself, but tt
tnay make a very considerable di|
ference in expense* in tlie course of a
year. We have in mind a case
where the outlay ol" $5000 on a road
by the owner* of a quarry was repaid
to them in leas than two years by the
saving in expense*; and a member
ofthe firm ���who wa* at first opposed
to the expenditure���said afterward*
that no one payment by the Ann
brought In a more direct or hotter return than the $f*00or $600 a year It
cost to keep the road In good condition. Not every mining district can
have a railroad; but nearly evervI
one can have a decent road If It goa* I

Keep the Money nt Home.
It seems a very short sighted
policy for anyone to send away or
buy tn another town anything that
can be got here, even though the
cost be sottiewhat higher. Probably
ninety per cent, of tlie money paid
for salaries and wage* and tlie profits of buaimtaa. out*ide the value of
ore produced in the mines, is used
up in the cost of living and for other
purposes, directly and immediately.
That i*. about ten cents on every
dollar that ehantft** hands in Sandon
will be of no benefit to the rest of the
nmtation, and ninety cents will he
istri bitted through * the natural
channels of trade, eventually benefitting everyone living here. In
case, however, the money is sent out
of town we an* poorer by, ninety
cents on every dollar that g.��es, anil
in the course of a year tlie loss in tbe
aggregate Is enormous, and a very
serious one Ut each individual. Thus
although it may appear of advantage iu certain caaea. if the practice
were genera), huainesaof every kiufl
would atop. It therefore behooves
everyone to buy of local dealers.
Keep tlie motley at home.

Tbe dip of tlie ledge follows the slope
ofthe hill, aud is found within a few
feet of the surface the full length of
the claim. This allows the -nine to
be worked from tunnels, one below
the other close together. Five tunnels are now in, and another has
just been started.   The ore is clean
Siena, and is bagged and shipped
nn the mine.   The mine ship-ted
190,000 of ore last year.
Sandon nt the But.
Sandon has organized a baseball
club, which is believed will prove
the strongest in the Kootenay. Local
snorts are laying odds oh them.
There are two or three more players
yet to get, but some fine talent is
being negotiated for,, and the result
will be known in a few days. The
following is a list of those engaged
so far:
Powers, catcher; Dolan, pitcher;
Murnhv, center field; Compeau,
third; Johnson, first; Kelly, second;
Blackwood, short, and Devlin, left

The Selkirk Mining nnd Milling
Work on the property of this company is being pushed ahead with
vigor. The tunnel wliich is being
ruu to crosscut the ledge at a depth
of 250 feet is now in nearly 200 feet.
It is expected the ledge will be
struck when another fifty feet has
been completed. A shaft to the
depth of fifty feet has been sunk on
the ledge and this is in ore all the
way down. The ledge is about ten
feet wide and is undoubtedly a true
fissure vein.    Thc  ore assays   87
ounces in silver and the very high
percentage of 81 per cent. lead. It
is expected that when the lead ia
reached a fine body of ore will be
struck. The property of the company consists of a group of four
claims situated between tiie Reed
and Tenderfoot and Canadian
groups and also of the Hope claim
near New Denver. Altogether about
18,000 haa been expended In development work and improvements.
This property is undoubtedly a very
promising one. The company is
stocked, and the directors and officers are well known Sandon men.
