TorOUgfa the medium of an   out-

,il that .Indue Forin had decided

Fin in admiringly contemplating
tbeae wealthy  and   contented   fel
lows the reporter then Htrolled
along to another '/roup, whieh
from it* appearance of agitation
was evidently not iu ho contented
a frame of mind. On investigation it was found that three new-
real estate men were trying to oc
eupv the one -now.covered stump,
which appeared to most of the on-
lookers to he a physical impossi
hility, hut the erofjrd was in the
frame of mind to receive new impressions with avidity and so they
encouraged the three to demon.
strat��- the fact, hut fortunately for
science enthroned, the thing was
found impossible and the two other
real estate men left reviling bitterly tiie happy possessor of the
stump and Sandon real estate.
From this scene of conflicting
human poestOOa Ho* reporter turned in -aduess and after walking
for a few yards run across a scene
of domestic hliss that took the
taste of the foregoing scene out of
his mouth. In a small square
structure, hastily put up tm a lot
of like dimensions, sat Frankie
Mi -Kin mm Surrounded with a few
neceeaary kitchen utensils, aud
wearing ui his nice the expression
of Unutterable contentment. To
ah luijutry, mildly put, as to if he
i\'��re wafting for the rest of his
furniture, he replied: "Yes. ami I
expect to eat in   here to-morrow."
After giving some pointers, nut of
the abundance   of   his  knowledge,
to Frankie, as to how to properly
inanipulat** a hannock, the reporter retraced his   steps   towards the
"flfiee of this great stinkier for truth
and uphohh-r of the right of every
free-horn citizen to tin as he darn
pleases. Ineideiitly. however, be
���tepped into the office uf M. L.
OHmmett just to find out if the report that Bproat bad lost his case
whs really and truly Correct ami
tins is the result of the interview
with that gentleman, lie said:
"The report appearing in soma
of the new-paper- purporting to
give ail OeOOUUt of the decision ^\t
Judge Form in the suit of Sprout
vs. Hammond is entirely incorrect.

appl leal ion was heard and finally
decided   on    Monday   last.     The
Judge appointed a receiver as ask

Itvering judgment stated iu cleat
terms that the plaintiff was undoubtedly entitled to have a receiver appointed as without discussing the natation as to what

no title of any kind. As agaiuet
a squatter the plaintiff had a right

Court when tbe decision was given
and says he knows what he is
talking about. The case was removed to the Supreme Court on
the application of the plaintff as
was also the other suit of Sproat
vs. Kerliu. in which a receiver was
appointed some time ago. Mr.

observed that they are almost in
direct opposition to the facts of
the matter. To what this is due
it would be hard to say. probably
the reporter was full of corn

He held that the holder could

He said further that if the moneys

|lutt��'a Mines Lose Hnlf their Wow In
Wasted Water.
Hutu*, Hoot. A rich strike of cop
per and silver has been made in the
Received mine at the head of Horse
canyon. At a depth Of 2'3) feet a vein
ot OOpper ore was cut through in the
shaft which goes 10 |*er cent co|��per
ami tt ounces in silver. In bate. Horse
canyon and Park canyon a great deal
ot money has been spent in the past
year in deve'optnent work on the
different mines. Many small leads
have been found, but the present dis
covery so near the surface is the most
important one yet made.
The mill at the \l>\* mine in ilasin,
with a capacity of BO tons ot ore
daily, started up the first of the week.
A-I'.rt time ago the Ho)�� Mining
company secured a bond <m the Deer
Lodce loade and have struck a lO
foot le<lge ol ore that runs from $10 to
$40 a too in gold awl silver.
The geological survey ol the mines
of Hutte is not yet complete and a
number of men are Mill working. A
startling theory has been advanced
in connection with thin work, iu a
letter received lately from Washing
ton. written by one of the Tutted
Suites geologic survey party recently
in Hutte, contains the lollowing
"It is still an open <iue*tk>n with
HI as to whether the amount of cop
l-er washed away in the water from
the mines of Ikttte district is not
���ijual in value to the total ..input ol
all the mines ol the district, if it could
be saved."
Sj*��-akiug ol the subject a well-
known in in inn man Haul i
"It is popularly Mppoaad that only
the water trom the Anaconda and St
Ltwrence mines isof value for pre
cipitation pttpooca but that is a mis-
t.Ae. In all the big copper mine*
water from any dejptn in tne mines is
rich in copj*er, and can generally be
precipitated with profit Wherever
there is oxidation there must 1h�� heat,
and the water Howing through the
lower levels of the mines becomes
impregnated in proportion to tht
heat. The water in the Parrot is
leased and a preeipitatinn plant pro
duces a good deal of copper. At the
< olusus a plant Is in o|*eration to save
the copficr from the water and other
mines have precipitation plants. In
Arizona and elsewhere precipitation
ia used to save Ihe COppST carried
away by water. Old iron is used by
all the mines in this work and the
proceed is very cheap. Simply a
naaber of vats a. d troughs are used
filled with old iron. The water i*.
turned in ami runs over this heap. It
in the object U> have as much surface
as iioasible, no the troughs are made
in long sections. Kvcn in this way
much ofthe copper is lost, but usually
enough is saved to make it profitable.
The precipitants run hviu 15 to 80
|*r cent, pure copper and the CXpSMC
is very small. 1 look tor some method
to bo discovered that will save most
ol the OOpper lost in this way. It
would mean millions to Hutte anna*
ally, as it would probably have the
effect ol doubling the output ol the
tJohl  Or* at  n   t.rrnl Orpih.
The mining world has been set by
the ears b| the developments iu the
Kennedy  mine,  Grass Valley, Call*
ferula, within the past few weeks. At
a perpendicular depth ol over 2,100
feet, a body of rich ore, thirty feet in
width has ken discovered. In magnitude, the ore body will compare
favorably with any yet found, and
the great depth at which it lies ex-
j'lodes a lung cherished and hereto
tore believed infallible tradition of the
search for gold on the Pacific coast.
It is an old theory, which age has
almost crystallized into a formula,
that gold ore disappears after a certain
depth has been attained. This is a
creed of every old prospector from
the Yukon to the Panama Isthmus.
The development in the Kennedy
not only topples over the old-time
k'litf, but may lead to a revolution
in mining in California, for the deeper they tro in the Kennedy the wider
grows the ore body.

He Ileanl  It.
He was fresh from the dewy vales
ot Way back, and having come up to
town tor a real old rip-snorting time
the idea struck him that his cousin by
marriage���a well-known Wall street
broker���would be just the man to
assist him in having it,
He was received with oj>enarms.
During the conversation which
ensued the eyes ot the rural gentle
man landed ujion the telephone which
hung in one corner of his relative's
office. A telephone was something
new to him. He had heard of them
in a general way, but had never seen
one in operation, so expressed a desire "t'see the thing wuk.''
"Through this little instrument,
remarked the city cousin, after committing the customary verbal assault
and battery upon central, "I am able
to talk directly with my wife, who ;it
present is in my house in Harlem, and
hear her replies distinctly.'*
"Ah, hello! Hello! Is that yon
dear? All right. I just wanted to
tell you that Cousin (ieorge is here."
"Now, cousin." concluded the
broker, handing the receiver to him,
"it you'll listen carefully you'll hear
ex'tctly what she answers.'
He listened. Then he backed away
from the instrument with a pained
"Well, queried the broker, with a
friendly smile, "what did she say ?"
"She sed: 'I hope yew won't
bring th' old fool hum tew dinner."'
It will never be known exactly how
the city cousin managed to explain

Sitting in a barber shop the other
day, patently awaiting my turn. I
noticed a prominent clergyman being
shaved by a barber who had evidently become unnerved by the previous
night's dissipation.
The   performance   was  watched
breathlessly; the expected cut arriv
ed,  the clergyman's blood oedewed
his chin.
He looked up at the artist reproachfully, and said:
"Vou see, my man, what comes of
hard drinking."
"Ves, sir," renlied the barber con-
ingly, "it makes the skin tender."

It is UUed up -��n gcoi authority
that there is a movement on fi��ol to
have placed upon the statutes a new
Dominion act whico will forever nl
at rest the question of the non nsess-
ability ot mining stocks sold at a
discount. Some time ago there ex
isted considerable uncertainty In tbe
public mind as to the safety of j>ur
chasing such shares, but the puhli
cation of the opinions ot men qualified
to speak on the subject aoited anxiety
and now no more is heard c4 the
matter. During the past month or
two, however, scores of prominent
members of Parliament have identified themselves with the directorates
of development and other mining corporations, and it is understood that
they will combine to put the projrosed
legislation through the house. The
names of leading men on both sides
of the House are spoken of as being
behind the bill. One clause of the
act will make the stock of a mining
company sold for development purposes at a discount fully paid up and
nonassessable. An added negative
clause will provide that not more
than 70 per cent, ot the stock of a
mining company shall lie turned over
in lieu of the propertv. This will
protect the public by compelling

Origin of the Term    Wildest
We have been asked tn give the
origin of the word "wildcat" as appli
eel in mining phraseology. A corres
pondent from camn McKinney to the
Vancouver World has thus given the
locality where the term first became
general, yet without explaining how
it originated. "I have mined all
over America in the last twenty-five
years, and with me the word 'wild-
cat,'when applied to a prospect, is not
original, but borrowed from the Pennsylvania oil operators, who meant by
that tearm to sink In a now diHtriet
amaldered outside of the belt."
James (jilhooly has transferred to
David Gordon Marshall a bond of $18, -

Laws that Give the Preacher a "Lead-
Pipe  Cinch" on the  People
Station, B. C.
Mr. Love's able discussion of
the Sunday law in your column?
has excited such general attention
that it uiay interest many of your
readers to know exactly what are
the chief provision* of the Sunday
Tlie British Columbia "Sunday
Observance Act'" simply brings into force three English acts enacted
by the Puritans between two and
three hundred years ago.
The most important provision
is that every person must resort or-
repair every Sunday to some
church, chapel, or some other
usual place appointed for common
prayer. Anybody who fails to do
so may be ��uuiinotied before a
Justice of the Peace an I fined
twenty five cents. The following
things are forbidden on Sunday:
To use. employ or travel with
any boat, wherry, lighter or barge,
without the leave of a Justice of
the Peace, fine Sl.'-'o.
To drive a team or a drove of
cattle, tine 15.00.
To expose to sale wares, merchandise, fruits, herbs, goods or
chattels. The penalty is the forfeiture of the goods, and. if they
cannot be found, the merchant is
to be placed in the stocks for two
To work at one's ordinary call,
ing. fine 11.25.
Drovers, horse-coursers, waggon*
ers, butchers and higler.-. may not
travel or come to a hotel on Sunday, under penalty of ���?.">.00, but
less desperate characters an* al
lowed to do so.
Almost the only thing which
the Puritans allowed on Sundav
was the sale and consumption of
liquor at hotels. The English
Puritans seem to have had little
sympathy with temperance and
were, in fact, perhaps a little like
the Scotch Puritans, whom the
Lord has always grievously afflicted with the sins of drunkenness
aud fornication, to keep down
their spiritual pride. But. at last.
in 181*1. this stain upon our laws
was removed by the Hon. John
Rohson, the Hon. .1. H. Turner
and others of the Lord's servant.*)
who were then charged with the
Government of British Columbia.
They made it illegal to supply
liquor on Sundays, except with
meals or to bona tide travellers.
But. in case anyone in Sandon
should be too downcast at tbi*
news. I may add that it is lawful
to supply liquor to anyone, for
medicinal purposes, on the order
ofa Justice of the Peace.
Yours Ac.
