Mrs. Rose of New Denver was visiting in Sandon this week,
Dr. Hendryx and wife arrived on
Thursday from California.
Sidney Norman and wife of Spo
kane spent the early part of the week
in town.
Dick Shey and Richard Shey are
back on "the old sod" telling their
friends about Kootenay.
C. M. Acatt, who had a bond on
the Great Western last fall, is now
mining in the Transvaal.
Mrs. R. J. Broddy and Mrs. A. C,
McArthur and children are spending
a few days In New Denver.
Dan Godfrey's band, the greatest
military band on earth, will be in'
Nelson on the 9th of September.
F. L. Christie has leased the residence part of Mr. C. M. Wilson's
house, in which Mr: and Mrs, Christie
will take up their abode.
The public school will resume on
Monday next. An addition is to be
built to the school building to accomodate the ever increasing attendance.
C. S. Drummond and R. B, Archibald, directors of the Queen Bess
Proprietory, visited Sandon this
week after having had a look at the
property. .,
G, E. Weinant returned yesterday
from Lemon creek where he has
been doing assessment, bring some
pretty samples of ore as a reward
for his energy-. . ���
Wm. Lawson and Win. Thopmson
returned yesterday from Alberni,
where they have* Wen prospecting
for the last two months. They report the minjivg, industry in rather a
backward condition in that vicinity.
T. S. Beique, L. J. Beique and W.
Strachan of Montreal, who are interested in the Slocan Soverign, Madison and Payne, paid a visit'to the
properties on Monday and Tuesday,
accompanied by Bernard Macdonald,
expert for the companies.
Eight men are at work on the trail
which is to extend from the head of
Cody creek to the South Fork ot
Kaslo. The government appropriated $503, which will build two and
one-half miles of trail. James Croft
is in charge of the work.
The deal for the $15,000 worth of
debentures which the city is selling
to raise money to pay for' the flume
bas been practically closed, some
technicalities in the bvlaw requiring
"Iteration first. R. Wilson Smith of
Montreal is the broker. The debentures, on which the citv will pay six
Per cent interest, wil'l net 90 per
cent.
David W King is pushing work on
the Marion, on Silver mountain,
which he recently bonded. Under
the terms of the agreement, he must
keep at least four miners employed.
Mr King is confident of making an
important mine out of the property.
The directors of the Florida mine,
in Jackson basin, are pushing things
right along on their property. An
ore car and track was put in this
week and is now in operation. They
are well into the ledge and expect to
reach the hanging wall this week in
the long tunnel. The property is
looking well and gives promise of
fulfilling all expectations.���Kootena-

ORE SHIPMENTS.
Notwithstanding that most of the
mines are shut down ore shipping
has not been entirely suspended.
During the last week in July the
Queen Bess shipped 111 tons, and up
to the 7rli of the present; month 110
tons. The shipments from McGuigan
last month warje, Rambler 48&, An-
toiti.��� _0. The Whitewater has snip-
pel .'53 tons and the Jackson 41 tons
so tar this month. From Sandon the
Coin has shipped 2J tons this week.
After the ceremony the gathering
proceeded to the Reco Hotel, where
a sumptuous repast was served to the
brethern of the order. Although
gotten up on very short notice the
banquet could not have been more
enjoyable, and the management of
the Reco came in for much praise.
The toast list, given below, brought
out several brillant after dinner
effusions and sallies of wit. Interspersed with song and story it made
a pleasing and attractive  program.

Russell Donald, George Russell and
B. E. Taylor have taken a lease on
the dumps of the Payne mine. They
have allrea'dy ; commenced work,
sorting the waste by hand. By a
proces8of ground sluicing they hope
to carry off the lighter rock and
make it an easy matter to collect
whatever ore has been put over the
dump. A hand jig will be put in to
separate the pre in the finely-pulverized waste. They are working on a
royalty, the mine getting 25 per cent
of the ore saved.

eight arc lights which cost the city
1100 per month. The office, including heat and light, has cost the city
$30 per month.
The act of the city council in cutting off the street light service shows
questionable judgment, Had they
cast about them for the means to purchase the light plant so that the light
might be had at cost, their action
would have been much more commendable. Civic franchises should
be in the hands of the public and not
ot individuals. J. M. Harris, of the
Sandon Water & Light Co., at the
Court of Revision signified his willingness to dispose of the plant and
business. The city's proper course is
to find the money and buy both the
water and light plants. It is a poor
advertisment to resort to such economy as curtailing this necessary
service just at the time that the city
is trying to sell bonds on its credit to
pay for the flume.
The $30 a month which the city
pays for its city office, together with
the rent ot other buildings occupied
by the city, if used as interest and
sinking fund, should buy a building
suitable to the city's requirements.
Such an arrangement would afford
the advantage that the city   would
own the building.

GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP.
Discussed in the Dominion House
of Commons.
There are four men in the Dominion House who are independent
enough to vote their own convictions;
men who are not subservient to any
corporation clique, party or creed.
They are Frank Oliver, of Edmonton, R. L. Richardson, of Winnipeg,
liberals, and John Ross Robertson
andW. F. Maclean, of Toronto, conservatives.
These men are the only members
who can be relied on to stand by the
people who elected them. They are
all newspaper men.
The discussion in the house last
week over the granting of ��5,305,120
as railway bonuses throws important
light on the standing of the members,
showing how many are allied to the
corporations and how few are free.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, when forced
to make a declaration, placed himself on record as being opposed to
any attempt to nationalize the railroads of Canada. Sir Chas. Tupper,
Richard Cartwright, Tarte, Blair,
Sifton, McMullen, Foster and many
other party leaders on both sides
declared against government ownership in a manner that left no room
for doubt as to their position,
R. L. Richardson, of the Winnipeg
Tribune, speaking on the matter
said that he found from official
sources that no less than 40,000.003
acres ot land, exclusive of lands in
British Colombia and other parts of
the country, had been voted for the
building of railways in Manitoba
and the Northwest. This is exclusive
of British Columbia, where practically a kingdom iu coal lands has
been given. And the great majority
of the lands granted belong to the
C. P. R., which is probably the
largest owner of land in the civilized
world. Now that the best lands in
the country have been exhausted,
the railway exploiters, who wanted
the government to build railroads
for them to own them, want cash
subsidies, and it seemed to him that
the time had come when they should
cease giving these people subsidies.
The statistics showed that from
Federal, Provincial and municipal
sources something like $200,000,000
iu cash had been contributed towards
railways and $70,000,000 expended
on our canal system. Taking the
population of Canada at 5,000,000,
the transportation had absorbed $54
per head, and if the gifts of land
given to the railway companies were
added at the estimated value of $2
per acre, it would bring up the con
tribution for transportation to $350,-
000,003, equivalent to $70 per head
ot the entire population. Notwithstanding the immense contributions
to transportation, at least five-sixths
1 of the entire products of the north
west do not pans over the canals
which have been constructed in Canada, nor over the railroads which
have been bonused so lavishly, but
through American channels, via
Buffalo and New York.
Turning to the Rainy River Road,
he said he had heard that the Manitoba Government had promised a
bonus of $4,000 a mile to this road,
which, added to $4,000 a mile from
the Ontario Government and $6,400
a mile from the Dominion Government, made a subsidy of $14,000 per
mile, which he thought was more
than enough to build the road. He
suggested that the Rainy River Road
should be built and owned by the
government in order to prevent its
being absorbed by the Canadian
Pacific The Minister ot Railways
had said last year that the government could not prevent the owners of
the C. P. R. purchasing the bonds of
the Rainy River road and so control
it, and if that was the case he thought
it was the best reason why the gov
eminent should build the road itself.
Speaking of the government ownership of railroads, W. F. Maclean of
the Toronto World said: I am willing to stake my reputation and any
chance I have in the future on this
line. I believe in the nationalizing
of railways and of all great public
franchises; and in connection with
city governments I believe in the
municipalization of civic franchises.
This is the coming principle in governments that are going to win, I
think, in the present, and certainly
in the immediate future. People are
tired of what has taken place in the
past, The railways have become
the masters instead ot the people
being the masters of their own country. All over the world this progressive policy is attracting young men.
I am in favor of the nationalizing immediately ot the telegraph system of
this country, of the issue of notes
which the banks now enjoy, and a
great many other things.
Mr. J. Ross Robertson of the Toronto Telegram said he was not in
favor of government ownership of
railways in the abstract, but what
he found difficult to get ax was why
this government can never get beyond Mackenzie & Mann. He asked
why the government could not have
worked with the governments in
Toronto and Winnipeg and settled
this railway question forever to the
advantage of the whole country.

the ball rolling, Work was begun
today at the international pier in
cleaning up the ground and making
preparations for the railway which
will tap the Intercolonial line so as
to bring the cement, etc., to where it
will be needed. McSween and McNeil are getting things readv preparatory to the building of the' shed.
There were over 100 men employed
there today. Most ot the men were
from Glace Bay. Over six carloads
of lumber are on the grounds and
six cars of rails. It is stated that a
steamer with cement is now on its
way to Sidney. Quarrying of stone
at South Bary is still going on. It
is thought it may be given up on
account of the softness of the stone.

THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, AUGUST 12, 1899.
THK   BOSUN'S   EARNINGS.
To the mining world the name of the
Boeun mine is well known, for in the
short space of lew than a year it has developed from aqueationablo mining prospect into a dividend-paying mine. Many
news reports of the property as it has
developed have been made, but nothing
of a complete nature has been published
of the property until Howard WeBt, A.
R. S. M., in the August number of the
B. C. Mining Record, gives the following:
���'The Slocan has been aptly termed a
poor man's country, in contradistinction
to other parte of the province, from the
fact that in many instances owing to peculiar natural advantages, it has been
possible to defray the preliminary expenses incurred in development from the
proceeds of ore obtained almost at the
grass roots. Never, perhaps, has this
been so conspicuously exemplified as in
the case of the now well-known Bosun
mine.
"So many unauthentic reports, some
of them almost ludicrous in their inaccuracy, have been circulated regarding
this property that it is a pleasure to be
able to chronicle the true ungarnished
facts as they really exist.
"The history of the Bosun hinges on
the accidental discovery, in the summer
of '97 of a vein of galena on what was
afterwards known as the Fidelity claim.
It has been, frequently recorded how a
projector returning home one evening
was struck by the casual appearance of
pieces of galena embedded in the roots
of an upturned tree. Investigation led
to the finding of'the vein from whence
these were derived and subsequent staking ol the ground, which, by the way,
had been located several times previously and abandoned as worthless on account of the heavy superficial covering
of gravel and debris, which rendered
systematic prospecting out of the question. The physical feature, however,
which proved so great an obstacle to the
miner, was the condition most favoiable
to the agriculturist, so it came about
that the ground situated below the Fidel
ity, being well irrigated and close to the
lake, was appropriated to the uses of the
rancher. This peaceful condition of affairs was, however, destined to be shortlived, for designing persons who had
thoroughly mastered the intricacies of
the mining law saw no capital in the
idea of staking off the ground and acquiring the right to sink shafts and run
tunnels through the owner's crops, the
result being that the Boatswain and
Tyro were added to the list of claims in
the Slocan mining division.
"Such a brilliant piece of stratagom
was rewarded by the payment of $700,
although it is somewhat doubtful if they
could have substantiated their right to
the ground at the time, had it been called
in question. Peace at any price, however, appeared to be the motto of the
rancher, and so having disposed of likely
complications he proceeded with his task
of cultivating the soil, a wiser though
apparently poorer man. This latter,
however, remained to be proved; in the
course of time it became necessary in
order to retain possession to do the animal assessment as required by law, and
haying previously made efforts to trace
the Fidelity vein on to the Bosun ground,
open trenches were dug near the boundary line with a view to its discovery.
Fortunately these proved highly successful, or at any rate a vein-whether identical with that originally found or not-
carrying galena, was here brought to
light, which, although, unknown at the
time, contained in embryo the possibilities of the Bosun mine as it exists today.
The uncertainty regarding its ultimate
value, and the amount of capital required
to effectually prove it, led the owner to
accept an offer made by Mr. Sandiford,
representing the NorthweBt Mining Syndicate. By the terms of this option he
agreed to keep two men continuously at
work on the property for thirty days, at
the expiration of which he had the privilege of either relinquishing all title, paying ten per cent, down on a year's bond
at $15,000, or purchasing at a cash con-.!
sideration of $7,500.
Starting some 300 feet down the hill,
away from the  Fidelity  line,   he commenced to sink an experimental shaft in
the hope of encountering a continuation
of the vein, thereby proving conclusively
that it entered and was contained in the
Bosun ground.    Here again the efforts
were crov. ned with success, for within a
few feet of the surface, as soon as the
loose ground was traversed, encouraging
indications were met with.    Something
more than indications, however, are required to make a mine, and luckily it
was not long before this was forthcoming in the shape of a fine streak of galena.
When first discovered this was barely
wide enough to measure, it is true, but
then big things  sometimes have small
beginnings, more frequently perhaps in
mining than in other directions, and this
proved to be emphatically the casein the
present instance.    'Ab the distance, from
the surface increased, so did the width
of galena in proportion, until at a depth
of 40 feet, ore was visible for almost the
entire width of the shaft.     Under the
circumstances it was not to be wondered
at .that Mr. Sandiford accepted the latter
alternative in the terms of the agreement, and Mr. Harris, the owner of the
ranch, who had been deluded into paying $700 for two worthless claims, found
himself the richer by f 7,500.    Truly the
fortunes'of miningare many and various.
"On July 4th active development be- [
gan under the new company, and though
employing only a few men at first, the
force has been steadily increased until it
numbers over thirty. Within two
months of making the payment and
three of the commencement of operations, while still in the initial stage of
development, shipments were begun,
the first car leaving the mine on September 6th, to be followed by five others
the same month, making a total of 120
tons for September, or a value considerably more than the original cost of the
property. From that time to this there
has been no diminution in the producing
capacity of the mine, the output being
consistently maintained in the neighborhood of 100 tons a month. In all, 900
tons have been shipped to date, having a
net value of over $o0,000, a record I venture to assert unprecedented in the history of mining in the Slocan and in all
probability of the whole province.
"This article would be incomplete
without a reference to the unique position in which the North West Mining
Syndicate and its shareholders stand
when compared with other companies
similarly situated. Soon after the first
annual meeting the directors were able
to announce with pardonable pr.de the
declaration of a 20 per cent, dividend
as a result practically of the first year's
operations.    This encouraging condition of affairs was due to several causes,
a briet analysis of which might serve
as an object lesson to  our companies
who have made a failure and then attributed it to the country.  To attempt
to eliminate the element of chance
would be to deprive mining of a good
deal of its attractiveness from the investor's standpoint, but to proceed always along the most careful business
lines is the first and obvious duty of all
interested in this important phase ot
the industry; and this is what a good
many���in fact I think we may safely
say the majority of directors-^-do not.
To begftl with, the company under consideration has an experienced London
board, composed not merely of thorough
business men, but those who have had
to deal with mining ventures in other
parts of the world, and therefore know
precisely what they are about in this
instance.   Secondly, and of quite equal
importance, is the fact that they are not
burdened with a capital so vast as to be
entirely unmanageable and out of all
proportion to the scale of their operations.    The third factor which contributed to their success is the unlimited
confidence which they reposed in their
local representative, Mr. W. H. Sandiford, who had full power to act for the
company  in   any   emergency  which
might arise. To his foresight and judgment, acquired during  some twenty-
live years' varied experience in every
quarter of the globe, they owe a large
measure of praise, and if there is one
gratifying feature about the whole connection, it is to know that his services
to the company have been fully recog
nized by the directory and substantially
acknowledged; a most excellent precedent for other companies who wish
to achieve like success.    It might not
be out of place to refer to one other
little matter while we are on the subject,
namely, that the office of the company
is located in New Denver within a short
distance of the mine itself.    No huge
staff of officials find employment in upholding the dignity  of the company,
nor is a pretentious stone building in
which to conduct its business considered
a necessity, yet I venture to say that if
any  detailed   information about the
mine is required, it can be furnished as
soon, if not sooner than in many of the
larger offices where a dozen men lounge
about and nobody knows just where his
department ends and his neighbor's begins.   This concern, too,  differs from
less than 800 feet above the town in elevation, no boarding house Is kept by
the company; the men thus enjoy the
privilege of living where they like, and
and come to town as often as they
choose. For a like reason no Sunday
work is permitted at the mine, mutual
satisfaction having been arrived at
where friction might have been expected.
"What this company has done and is
still doing for the vicinity may be
judged from a glance at the monthly
pay-roll, which shows an expenditure
of over $8,000, a consideration which
must add materially to the welfare and
prosperity of any town fortunate enough
to command it."

FUL_   OF   SINKERS.
Billy Harrington has been in New
Denver for several days past awaiting
the result of a mining deal.    Billy is
one of the most popular young men in
the Slocan, as well as energetic.    The
other day while waiting for the wires
between here and Vancouver to cool he
went fishing, and was lucky.     He
I brought back some fish, and inadvertently showed them to Henry Stege.
Henry is very fond of fish, and is a
good judge of their weight.    While he
was examining Billy's string of trout
some individual suggested a bet for the
drinks on their weight.     The bet was
made and Henry hurried away to get a
pair of scales.    Then Billy did something terribly wicked.    He opened the
mouths of those innocent and perfectly
dead fish and filled them plumb full of
sinkers.   Henry, smiling and innocent,
returned with the scales.   The fish were
weighed and of course the genial landlord lost the bet.    After the crowd had
held the stakes for a short time, someone, probably Dave  King, gave the
snap away, and now Henry vows he
will never bet again on a  man from
Sandon or his game.    Although Billy
never sinks in any game, he still has
the sinkers and is headed for Duncan
City.���The Ledge.

Speaking of the labor trouble in
this camp, the Mining Record's correspondent from the Slocan, fairly
sums up the situation: "The unanimity which at first prevailed among
the mine owners has is some degree
broken down, ��*s several of the mines
are now employing men at "union"
wages, and many others will be
forced to do so ere long, if only for
the purpose of keeping their, workings
in safe condition. The unconcern of
the miners, who appear to be in good
demand elsewhere, coupled with tbe
growing restlessness of shareholders
as no returns are forthcoming upon
their investments, render it imperative that operations be recommended
at the earliest opportunity, and it
would therefore seem as if the mine
owners are left with the one alternative of importing labor or conceding
the demands of the miners. It is
somewhat doubtful whether the former course is eyen practicable, but
at any rate an attempt will probably I , There is a lady in Philadelphia 108

There is a law of cohesion in the moral as well as the physical atoms of the
universe. Like is drawn to like. Birds
of a feather flock together, whether
they are blackbirds or jailbirds. When
you see a man frequent the company of
gamblers, drunkards or thieves, it is
safe to assume that his plumage harmonizes with theirs, no matter how
skilfully he may be disguised, by the
respectable feathers he flourishes. Decent men have no affinity with scalla-
wags, says a writer in Town Topics,
and vice versa. "Show me your company," says an old proverb, "and I will
tell you what you are." When you see
a young man���or, for that matter, an
old man flocking with those birds of gay
plumage, that flit in and out of, the glittering side entrances to hell, it does not
that should inspire hope in the old
maidens now on deck. This old lady
is also a heroine. She is not afraid of
telling the truth when her age is under question.
A woman in Pennsylvania recently
gave birth to seven babies in one
day. A woman capable of such a
feat must be physically tar above the
ordinary human female. Most of
women nowadays find it a difficult
operation to give birth to one child,
owing to tight lacing and other evils
ot modern times. If the ladies would
pay more attention to stirpicultnrc
the race would be improved, and the
world would not be annoyed with so
many half-made-up and weak people
as it now contains.
THE   MAN   WITH   THE   LOAD.
Bowed by a weight of fiery stuff, he leans
Against   the   hitching-post  and gazes
round!
Besotted emptiness is in his face,
He bears a load that still may get him
down.
Who made him dull to shame and dead
to pride,
A thing that cares not and that never
thinks,
Filthv, profane, a consort for the pig?
Who'loosened and let down that stubbly
jaw?
Whence  came  the  scum   adhering to
those lips?
What was it closed and burned away
his brain?
Is this the thing the  Lord  God made
and gave
Jo have dominion over sea and land;
To love and to oe loved; to propagate
And teel the passion of Eternity?
Is this the  dream   He  dreamed   who
shaped the suns
And pillared the blue firmament with
light?
Down all the stretch of hell to its last gulf
There is no shape more hideous than
this���
More tongned with  proof that Darwin
didn't know���
For where in all the world of brutish
beasts
Is one from which   this monster might
have come?

A restaurant keeper in Toronto was
fined $1 and costs the other day for
selling ice cream on Sunday. It is
against the law to sell anything in
Toronto on Sunday except sermons.
We presume the same law exists in
Kootenay. How it exists we are at a
loss to understand, as up to date it
has not bad strength enough to appear in public, and must be extremely emaciated. If people in the Slocan were fined at present tor not selling goods on week days the court
would be full ot business.
The Fernie Free Press wants the harlots of that town kept out of sight of the

His blood flows in

O'er   which    the
mother bends.
But what to him are those hot tears she
sheds,
What cares he for the taunts his children
bear,
The hungry cries they laise;   their twisted limbs?
Through   this   dread   shape   the  devil
boldly looks.
And in that reeling presence mocks the
world!
Throng!i this dread shape humanity is
shamed,
Profaned, outraged, dragged down and
brought to scorn���
Made to inhale fumes from the slime he

And hear him jest at, Virtue and at God.
0 masters, lords and  rulers in our land,
Must this foul solecism still
Be tolerated in an age when men
Grasp power from the circumambient air
And speak   through   space   across the

Must this vile thiiur be left to wed at will
Ami propagate his idiotic spawn,
A shame upon the age in which we live,
A curse on generations to be born?
0 masters, lords and rulers in our land,
How mav ye hope  to reckon with this
"man"?
How get along without the vote he casts
When there are public offices lo fill?
How will it be with candidates when he
No longer hangs upon the reeking bar
Prepared to fight, tostab, to murder, and
To vote for him whofurnisheshisdrinks?

SLOCAN MINERAL FLOAT.
Vancouver people are negotiating with
C. W. Harrington for the Get There Eli
group of five claims on Twelve Mile
creek.
Work is being pushed steadily on the
Neglected. The tunnel is in 110 feet on
the lead. Ore is encountered regularly
in kidneys and on the walls.
The owners of the Hartney group are
resuming work on the property this
week on a much larger scale. They
will continue work all summer.
The force of men employed on the
Willa group, prospecting and developing-, have opened up one of the finest
gold hearing ledges in the Slocan camp
On the Mero claim the tunnel has
been driven 85 feet. Cross-cut tunnels
will be started at this depth. This property is situated across the creek from
New Denver.
Fully 50 men are at work on Silver
Mountain and adjacent New Denver
properties. The Bosun Is still closed
but it is not believed the shutdown will
run many days.
McCuaig & Rykert, of Montreal, recently purchased an interest in the Galena Farm. The interest was bought
owing to the zinc, ol which there is said
to be $100,000 in sight.
Though none of the big Four Mile
properties are doing underground work,
excepting the Noonday, there are in the
neighborhood of 100 men employed doing surface work about the mines.
Tlu; Noonday is putting on, more men
daily, after a fewdays' lay off. The property is iu excellent condition. The
temporary lay-off was necessary owing
to the lack of stoping ground ahead.
The work that was started on the
Silver Band, between Four Mile and
Kiglit Mile, some weeks-ago is proving
the. property very satisfactorily. Ore
has been encountered in the 100-foot
tunnel.
Work was resumed on the Hewitt
claim. Four Mile, last week The No.
1 tunnel, now in 00 feet, will be driven
farther ahead an the lead. The No. 2
is in 10 feet Ore is showing in both
workings.
J. C. Harris located a small fraction
on the lake shore this week, lying between the Bosun and Neglected. He
has a promising ledge running from the
lake shore, 000 or 700 feet south of the
Neglected ledge. Two men are driving
a tunnel on the lead.
Another property on Red Mountain,
between Four Mile and Eight Mile
creeks, in close touch with the Willa
and Little Daisy, that is becoming of
great importance, is that known as the
A. E, It has a tremendous body of
copper-gold ore exposed, the ledge being 100 feet wide in places. The ore in
tins mountain is very similar to that of
Hossland camp.

It is easy to explain why the Slocan 1
City football team failed to make a goal
in the game with Silverton last week
Cleverly, New Denver's goal keeper,
was in the way.
Grant Thorburn and wife have returned to Silverton after a pleasure trip
Of several weeks in eastern Canada and
some of the northern states. Grant hur-
ridly came to New Denver to note the
progress of our thriving city.
J. C. Bolander and D. A. Van Dorn
were at Cody last Friday looking after
their mining inteiests there. While
watching the ground sluicing at the
Coin Fraction a large boulder rolled
down the hill and knocked Bolander into the flume and gave Van Dorn a whirl
about ten feet. Van was unhurt, but
Bolander was covered with bruises, and
thankful the accident was no worse.
INTERESTING   CONCENTRATES.
The government trail up Coffee creek
is being pushed rapidly ahead.
The miners were not successful in
their strike at Sudbury. Lack of organization was the principal cause of
failure.
Jack Clunan, better known as
"Tough Nut Jack," is looking after
some claims at Cape Nome for Gus
Seiffert, of Spokane.
The drivers in the coal mines at Fernie have struck for $2 50 for eight hours
work. They have been getting $2.25,
a rise of 25 cents since June 1st.
Nearly all the Cceur d'Alene mines
are being operated with new men, most
ly fiK>m Missouri.   The output is nom
inal compared with the termer production, and so far the new miners do not
give satisfaction.
Two women were fined in Nelson last
week for selling liquor without a license
at Robson. Women sell liquor every day
in Nelson without a license, and the law
does not touch them. Immunes of this
kind are to be found in all the large
towns of Kootenay.
THE   MAIIION   DEAL   CLOSED.
The Marion, one of New Denver's
most promising properties and which
became a shipper last winter, has been
bonded to David W. King, who is representing wealthy Toronto people. The
terms and figures are private, but it is
understood the consideration is a sub
stantial one. The deal was made
through J. K. Clark. Alex Sproat, An
gus Mclnnes, O. J. Marino and Geo.
Alexander were the owners. Mr. King
will have the management of the property. He left Wednesday morning with
supplies and men to begin immediate
operations. The Marino lies just below
the California, adjoining, and has about
1,200 feet of the California lead, with excellent ore showings. It is regarded as
one of the best properties on Silver
Mountain, with first-class prospects of
laking a mine.���The Ledge.

Toere are two brothers in Detroit
who now look the other way when they

I'm in great luck, getting tho sweetest,
prettiest, smartest woman in tha

"I'll acknowledge that she's a good
tecond in the race, Prince, a splendid
second, but the superlatives you have
used belong to my wife. She ia a

THE   DEPARTING   PARSON.
To my friend, Rev. W.M. MacKeracher.
Some feller dropped the word last night,
Down at "Poker Bill's,"
"The parson's goin' ter pull up stakes
And quit these bloomin' hills."
The boys all looked up sudden t-like
At the feller where he sot
And Tommy Roadley dropped his hand
An' fergot to take the pot.
"Yas," says the feller, kinder a'prised
At the way we took the news,
"Year's up, and he's goin' ter shake
This dust from off his shoes.
He's a-goin' away back east," says he���
"Boys," chipped in old George Fobs,
"Let's all cash in."   And then we fell
To reckonin' up the loss.
"Pop" Lowery 'lowed he'd bet a stack
That the camp 'd never see
A squarer oarson pull his coat
Er throw a packer's "T."
" 'Scribed for the 'Claim' when he fust
come,
Planked down the good hard dough,
And, ding it, boys, I kinder hate
Ter see the feller go."
"Doc" Rogers chipped a bean and said:
"The proper thing ter do,
Afore the parson pucks his quilts
And strikes fer prospecks new,
Is ter give tbe cuss a good send-off."
"I'm in on that, says Pete,
We'll 'pint Dave King the poet,
An' th' hull durn gang Ml treat."
Well, Sunday night we gathered in,
At the old Hotel Slocan,
Fer er reg'lar old-time blow-out.
We trotted out our man
And made him lisun to the truck
Our poet said he'd writ,
Which, if my memory serves me right,
Was 'bout like this, to wit:
"We've watched you party close, young
man,
Since you dropped yer pack down here,
And stated in a sermont
That you'd come to stay a year,
But we "felt a mite suspicious-like,
As folks is apt t' feel,
When a ' 'varsity chap' from way down
east,
Sets in to take the deal.
"Them days the gang didn't take much
stock
In missionary chaps.
And we sort 'er steered eround you���
There's where we lost, perhaps���
Fer we couldn't see how a beardless kid,
That had just got out 'er school,
Could preach and live in a mining camp
And stick to the Lord's eighth rule.
"We've heerd tell since, that when you
sot in
The game was a-running low;
The church debt loomed up mighty high
And the spirit didn't flow;
The Sunday night collections, them days,
Was 'bout as slim
As the Sunday mornin' attendance,
Which was almighty slim.,
"But it wa'nt long 'til it got eround
That yer preachin' wa'nt bad;
That them that didn't hear ye
Might some day wish they had;
That you struck out from th' shoulder
And layed down the good old tacks,
That every man's religion
1b recorded in Mb acts.
"That the man who has a ready hand
To help his feller man,
Has struck the paystreak of God's love
An' can save it in a pan.
You didn't'seem ter give a���er���
That is, you didn't care,
How rough an' tough a man might look
If his heart beat on the Bquare.
"That charity is a kingly grace,
If it assays what it ort���
The kiud that thinks no evil thing
And hears no bad report���
And though you were young and chip-
per-like,
It didn't take long ter see
That the heart that beat beneath yer vest
Was purty middlin' free.
" 'Long 'bout spring  o' th' year you
come,
You struck your pick one night
In a mighty powerful sermont
That made 'em see the light,
And it wa'nt long til half the gang
Was a-g^oin' to church, by guru,
And a-filhn' up yer button"l>ox
When the thing eround 'em come.
"Then "Scotty" led, and it wa'nt long
'Til "Sandy" follered suit
The gang it couldn'ta-been more 'sprised
Had it heered old Gabriel toot.
"Doc" Rogers took a hand 'bout then,
And the boys nigh lost their trnp,
When the three was 'leeteddeaeona,
But they never raised a yip.
"We've seen yer, day bv day, go on
In the way yer ort ter go,
Runnin' ver tunnel ter tap the ore
On th'ledge that we well know
Is th' one we all must look fer
If we ever strike it rich
On the mountain over yonder,
Er up, I don't know which.
"No use ter say now   what you've done,
Since yer dropped yer pack down here
And stated in a sermont
That you'd come to stay a your:
The record's writ in a higher place:
But we'll say right here in lieu,
That you've got the gang's hest blessina'
To carrv away with you."
t t t   "      t t
He went away; we've heerd tell since,
He's savin' souls���Quebec province.

houses of prayer and licensed houses
of prostitution; millionaires and
paupers; theologians and thieves;

chain gangs; politicians and poverty;
schools and scalawags; trusts and
tramps; virtue and vice.
A land where you can get a gocd
Bible for 15 cents and a bad drink of
whiskey for 5 cents; where we have
and men in congress with three wives
a lot in penitentiaries for having two;
where some men make sausages out
of their wives and some wane to eat
them raw; where we make bologna
sausages out ot dogs, canned beef
out of horses aud cows and corpses
out the people who eat it; where we
put a man in jail for not having the
means of support and on the rock
pile for asking for a job of work;
where we license bawdy houses and
tine men for telling the truth on the
streets; where we have a congress of
400 men to make laws and a supreme
court of nine men to set them aside,
where good whisky makes bad men
and bad men make good whiskey;
where newspapers are paid for suppressing the truth and made rich tor
telling a lie; where professors draw
their convictions from the same
source they do their salaries; where
preachers are paid ��25,0J0 a year to

oi'tlie wealthy; where business eun-

capital and whiskey in the cellar;
where we spend $5,UX) to bury a
congressman who is rich and $10 to

a crank; where we sit on the safety
valve of energy and pull wide open,
the trottle of conscience; where gold

THE   DEPARTING   PARSON.
To my friend, Rev. W.M. MacKeracher.
Some feller dropped the word last night,
Down at "Poker Bill's,"
"The parson's goin' ter pull up stakes
And quit these bloomin' hills."
The boys all looked up luddent-like
At the feller where he sot
And Tommy Rdftdley dropped his hand
An' fergot to take the pot.
"Yas," says the feller, kinder ���'prised
At the way we took the news,
"Year's up, and he's goin' ter shake
This dust from off his shoes.
He's a-goin' away back east," says he���
"Boys," chipped in old George Foss,
"Let's all cash in."   And then we fell
To reckonin' up the loss.
"Pop" Lowery Mowed he'd bet a stack
That the camp 'd never see
A squarer oarson pull his coat
Er throw a packer's "T."
" 'Scribed for the 'Claim' when he fust
come,
Planked down the good hard dough,
And, ding it, hoys, I kinder hate
Ter see the feller go."
"Doc" Rogers chipped a bean and said:
"The proper thing ter do,
Afore the parson pucks his quilts
And strikes fer prospecks new,
Is ter give the cuss a good Bend-off."
"I'm in on that, says Pete,
We'll 'pint Dave King the poet,
An' th' hull durn gang '11 treat."
Well, Sunday night we gathered in,
At the old Hotel Slocan,
Fer er reg'lar old-time blow-out.
We trotted out our man
And made him lisun to the truck
Our poet said he'd writ,
Which, if my memory serves me right,
Was 'bout like this, to wit:
"We've watched you party close, young
man,
Since you dropped yer pack down here,
And stated in a sermont
That you'd come to stay a year,
But we felt a mite suspicious-like,
As folks ib apt t' feel,
When a ' 'varsity chap' from way down
east,
Sets in to take the deal.
"Them davs the gang didn't take much
stock
In missionary chaps.
And we sort 'er steered eround you���
There's where we lost, perhaps���
Fer we couldn't see how a beardless kid,
That had just got out 'er school,
Could preach and live in a mining camp
And stick to the Lord's eighth rule.
"We've heerd tell since, that when you
sot in
The game was a-running low;
The church debt loomed up mighty high
And the spirit didn't flow;
The Sunday night collections, them days,
Was 'bout as slim
As the Sunday mornin' attendance,
Which was almighty slim. 4
"But it wa'nt long 'til it got eround
That yer preachin' wa'nt bad;
That them that didn't hear ye
Might some day wish they had;
That vou struck out from th' shoulder
Ana layed down the good old facks,
That every man's religion
Is recorded in his acts.
"That the man who has a ready hand
To help his feller man,
Has struck the paystreak of God'a love
An' can save it in a pan.
You didn't*seem ter give a���er���
That is, you didn't care,
How rough an' tough a man might look
If his heart beat on the square.
"That charity is a kingly grace,
If it assays what it ort���
The kind that thinks no evil thing
And hears no bad report���
And though you were young and chip-
per-like,
It didn't take long ter see
That the heart that beat beneath yer vest
Was purty middlin' free.
" 'Long 'bout spring  o' th' year you
come,
You struck your pick one night
In a mighty powerful sermont
That made 'em see the light,
And it wa'nt long til hall the gang
Was a-goin' to church, by gum,
And a-filhn' up yer button l>ox
When the thing eround 'em come.
"Then "Scottv" led, and it wa'nt long
'Til "Sandy" follered suit
The gang it Couldn'ta-been more 'sprised
Had it heered old Gabriel toot.
"Doc" Rogers took a hand 'bout then,
And the Ikivs nigh lout their grip,
When the three was 'looteddeacons,
But they never raised a yip.
"We've seen yer, day bv day, go on
In tho way "yer ort ter go,
Runnin' ver tunnel ter tap the ore
On th'ledge that we well know
la th' one we all must look fer
If we ever strike it rich
On the mountain over yonder,
Er up, I don't know which.
"No use ter say now   what you've done,
Since yer dropped yer pack down here
And stated in a sermont
That you'd come to stay a year:
The record's writ in a higher place:
But we'll say right here in lieu,
That you've got the ganu's best blessing'
To carrv away with you."

You do not know what a good
thing you are missing by not want-
tng to become citizens of this grand
country of ours, There isn't anything else like it under the sun.
You ought to send a delegation over
here to see us���this land or the free
���land of churches and 400,000 licensed saloons, Bibles, forts and guns;
houses of prayer and licensed houses
of prostitution; millionaires and
paupers; theologians and thieves;
libertines and liars; Christians and
chain gangs; politicians and poverty;
schools and scalawags; trusts and
tramps; virtue and vice.
A land where you can get a good
Bible for 15 cents and a bad drink of
whiskey for 5 cents; where we have
and men in congress with three wives
a lot in penitentiaries forhaving two;
where some men make sausa_es out
of their wives and some wane to eat
them raw; where we make bologna
sausages out of dogs, canned beef
out of horses and cows and corpses
out the people who eat it; where we
put a man in jail for not having the
means of support and on the rock
pile for asking for a job of work;
where we license bawdy houses and
tine men for telling the truth on the
streets; where we have a congress of
400 men to make laws and a supreme
court of nine men to set them aside,
where good whisky makes bad men
and bad men make good whiskey;
where newspapers are paid for suppressing the truth and made rich for
telling a lie; where professors draw
their   convictions   from   the   same
source they do their salaries; where
preachers are paid $25,000 a year to
chidare the devil and tickle the ears
oi'Uie wealthy; where business consists of getting property in any way
that wont land you in the penitentiary; where trusts hold you up and
poverty holds vou down; where men
vote for what they do not want for
tear they will not get what they do
want by voting for it,; where ''niggers' can   vote and   women   can't;
where the girl who goes wrung is
made  an   outcast   and   her    male
partner flourishes like a gentleman;
where women  wear false  hair and
men ' dock' their horses' tails; where
the  political   wire-puller   has   displaced the patriotic statesman; where
men vote for a thing one day and
cuss'it 364 days; where  we have
prayers on the floor of our national
capital and whiskey in the cellar;
where we spend $5,000 to bury a
congressman who is rich and $10 to
put away a workingman who is poor;
where to be virtuous is to be lonesome and to be honest is to bo called
a crank j where we sit on the safety
valve of energy and pull wide open
the trottle of conscience; where gold
is a substance���the one thing sought
for���and God is a waste basket for
our better thoughts and good resolutions;  where we pay 615,000 for a
dog and 15 cent  a dozen to  poor
women for making shirts; where we
teach the ' untutored Indian ' eternal
life from the bible and kill him with
bad whisky; where we put a man,in
jail for stealing a loaf of bread and
m congress for stealing a railroad;
where  the  check   book   talks;  sin
walks in  broad davlight, justxe is
asleep, crime runs amuck, corruption
permeates our whole social fabric,
and the devil   laughs  from  every
���street corner.
Come to us, Fillies, we got the
grandest aggregation of good things
and bad things, big things and little
things, cold things and hot things
and hard things, all sizes, varieties
and colors ever exhibited under one
tent. We've got guns, more Bibles
and more whisky than any two
shows on earth. IfVQu don't come
well fetch you. That's what our
guns are for. Of course when you
fellows 'jine' us sTou will have to
stop eating each other. You will be
our meat then. Our people won't
stand to see a lot of good meat wasted
that way. You cau eat each others
substance that make the flesh. You
can eat dogged bologna or canned
horse meat. It will be almost as
healthy and will expand our meat
trade.   Come to our arms.

WHY NOT USE THE TRUTH.
It is Just the Same Price and Wears
Better.
The Sandon Mining Review says:
" We nnderstand there are but two
men getting $3.50 a day for underground work at the Ajax Fraction."
This is about on a par with the
rest of the " news" the Review is
furnishing these days. Mr. Cliffe
does not and never did "understand."
If he cares to know the truth he can
very easily do so. It is this. There
are six miners working underground
at the Ajax Fraction. Their names
are: J. J. Smith, S. Cmeron, ('has.
Oss, Geo. Warman, Clug Beck and
Chaa. Strodbeck. These men receive
$3,50 for eight hours work. There
are two men working as labors,
David Leitch and A. Nichols. They
receive $3.00 a day. The names of
these men are all on the books of the
Sandon Miners' Union. If Mr. Cliffe
cares to he may call in and have a
look at them. That privilege is extended to him or any one else who
cares to ask it, If Mr. Cliffe cares to
ask the foreman Brinsley Walton,
he wilt be assured that these men do
as much work in eight hours as was
formerly done in ten, notwithstanding that the Ajax Fraction ledge is
in the hardest rock in the Slocan.
Mr. Clitfe's reasons for making
such statements are too well known
to need explanation. He does not
want the truth and would not use it
if it were forced on him. Honesty
and malice do not assimilate. He
can't use both. That's why he discards honesty.

The champions of martial law and
the permit system in the Coeur d'
Alenes are going to have an opportunity to try the validity of their
procedure against a force equal to
their own. Senator W A Clark has
resolved to open his properties on
Sunset Peak. He has given orders
to his foreman to employ none but
union men and not to recognize the
permit order. If Bartlett Sinclair,
Governor Stunenberg or any other
of the Idaho authorities attempts to
interfere with Mr Clark's right to
employ whomsoever he pleases, the
foreman is instructed to report the
case at once. Bill Clark is one of
the richest men in the United States
and has done as much for the work-
ingraan as any other two men in
America. He evidently intends to
tight the permit system on principle,
As he is in a position to bring it onto
the floor at Washington the outcome
of the struggle will be watched with
interest.
