I Sandon can furnish a team that
can easily beat Silverton and the

The clerk of the weater did the
square thing by Victoria and her 80th
anniversary was a gilt edged one in
the Slocan from a metrological point
of view. Everyone was abroad at an
early hour anxious to get a place inside, on top or underneath the palatial side door Pullmans that trans*
ferred the Miners' Union excursion
to the lakr. Three hundred excursion tickets were sold, besides which
the regular train took another good
crowd while many people roJe down
on horse back. Silverton got by far
tbe greater part of the Sandon contingent. New Denver coming second. Kaslo fared badly and their
excursion train was almost deserted.
The programme was opened in
Silverton with a foot ball match between Sandon and their home team
Silverton s playing was very poor
but Sandon played so much worse
that the lake town won by 5 to 0.
After the Nelson boat arrived the
the Caledonian games were brought
off. Gusty of Sandon took six firsts
out of nine events, capturing the
sold medal. These were the standing jump, standing high jump, running hop step and jump, running
long jump, 100 yards hurdle race
and 220 yard race. Wilson of Kossland took the 103 yard race and McLeod of Sandon the pole vaulting
and putting tire shot.
Burns and Boss of Kossland took
first place in the drilling contest,
putting down a 38 inch hole in the 15
minutes. Anson and McDonald of
Sandon came second with 36* inches.
The single-handed drilling contest
went to Mike Burns against Olaf
Kingwood of Sandon.
George Went worth's horse, Raiso,
took the quarter mile free for all. A
Rossland pony called 55 won in the
pony class.

Tha New Combine���What Marcus
Daly Saus ol it.
Just now when the price of copper
is ao high and the mine combine lias
been formed all that relates to this
metal is of interest. Mr. Marcus
Daly, President of the new Amalgamated Copper Company, has given
an important interview relative to
the scope of the new company. Mr.
Daly says it takes in the Anaconda,
covered by $75,000,000 capitalization.
No Michigan companies are included,
but arrangements are going on for
taking in more Montana properties,
presumably the Boston A Montana
and the Butte & Boston, and for the
increase of the capitalization.
Mr. Daly says the output of the
mines will be increased and mnch
money and labor expended in development. He also gives assurance, to
quiet fears and rumors in business
and labor circles, that he expects to
remain to the end of his life connected
with the management of Butte prop*
cities, and as long as he is there will
be no agitation over miners' wages
and no reduction from the present
The above refi-rence to tlie Boston

The litigation now on font In Men

The Standard Oil Company'* interests received a set-back when President Heinze of the  Montana Orel
Purchasing Company,   who owned\ Montana,
waa ��7210s.. a month ago, when the
supply was only 25,883 tons, the quotation stood no higher than ��67. A
year ago, when ths visible supply
was only about 1400 ions more than
at the present, the quotation waa but
��80l7s 9d. per ton A feature of
the month was the large advance in
the supplies from North America,
which amounted to 11,463 tons, as
against 6,206 tons in February, and
there was also a considerable Increase
in tbe Spanish shipments.
Some strange phases of Investing
in copper stocks are dealt with by
the New fork Commercla', which
says: "It does seem a very strange
thing that the greatest development
of copper mining should have been in
such states as Michigan and Montana.
Everyone knows thst in tbe early
davs ot American discovery, copper
in highly manufactured forms
abounded in Mexico and the adjacent
territories. Indeed the secrets of
Aztec treatment are yet unknown aa
to the process by which they gave u��
copper a temper eq ua I to steel. That
warlike weapons and domestic implements are found made oat of this
metal by tbe aborigines should, one
would suppose, have directed the
search for tbe metal toward our
southern rather than our northern
boundaries. And it is true that the
oldest copper mine today to in North

Professor Agaasiz's son discovered
the Calumet A Hecta mine by sheer
accident, and being a Boston man he
interested those capitalists and started
the flow ot capital amounting tu
hundreds of millions ot dollars into
the rocky wastes of Michigan. The
next discoveries were made In Butte,
and there tbe enormous
200shares of Boston -Montana stock,
filed a remonstrance against the reincorporation of the mining company
in New York. Mr. Heinze petitioned
tor a receiver for the company, which
was granted. The Supreme Court of
Montana, however, recently reversed
the decision and steps are now being
taken to reincorporate the company
under New York or New Jersey
A London, England, report says:
The rise in the price ot copper is
seriously affecting the Midland industries. Tbe Kynoch Company, of
Birmingham, manufacturers of arms,
munitions, etc., have discharged
over 1,000 hands, and the remainder
of the employees of the factory are
working half time. The govern-
ment has ceaaed placing orders for
copper, and the electrical firms are

It is true some shrewd men had the
courage to put their money into Art*
zona, but what Boston thought ot it is
shown by the well-known fact that
the late Irving A. Evane, about six
vears ago, waa offered the great
United Verde mlnea, near Jerome,
at 10 cents per share, and could not
raise the money in that great copper
share market.
Senator Clark, of Montana, did boy
the mine a little later, paying 1260,-

easily sell It to day for 150000,000;
indeed, he haa refused that price.

Klondike Oo'd Ow.pwt.
The largest estimate of Klondike gold
vield this season ranges from twelve to
twenty millions. The Klondike Nugget of April 8th, says:
"The output now haa been more than
doubled It ts probable that the royalty
this vear will be paid on over ���KOUO.OOO.
Exemptions and evasions will give
about double that amount ss the pro
duction of the Yukon for the year end
ing in the summer, 1899. The primitive
methods used in working the claims
make it verv unlikely that the wash-up
wilt give more than twelve to fifteen
millions on the outside."
As compiled by ihe Midnight Sun this

Karl's Cosu-t Exhibition.
In stating, as we did a fortnight ago,
that Canada would not be represented
at the forthcoming mining exhibition at
Earl's Court, we are glad to find that
we were a little premature. Colonel
Hillyer, of Mine Centre,. Ontario, baa-
recently taken space and.will exhibit
ores, etc , from the Lake of the Woods
and Seine River districts.. Included
will be a large display of ore from the
Alice A. mine, recently bought over by
an English syndicate. To the energy
and spirit thus displayed we may ex*-
pect the.happiest results, though it
saems a pity that the onus of representing the wealth of a province should fall
on the shoulders of practically one person.���-London B. C. Review.

The experimental working ot the

combined action will he taken by the

greatest harmony haa always existed.
It is most likely that the matter will be

Hard to Gat a Deetrable Olaaa to Leave
tha Old Country.
A report has been received by the In*
terior Department at Ottawa from Lord
Strathcona, on the immigration -work
done in Britain for the past year. While
there are no reliable figure* to be had,
the emigration to Canada for the year
was srreat|y ia excess of that of past
"At the present time* says Lord
Strathcona, "we are in commnaiearion
with from 2,600 to 8,600 school misteis
Several thousand of our large maps o*
Canada are hung upon the walls ol the
schools. TheJe mspi are used In co i
nection with the lessons. A large number of your pamphlets are also being
used as ordinarv readers in the schools,
and as th* children take th* books home
Canada is thus introduced into many
houses in which it migh otherwise not
become known. I find that many school
masters have a practical as well as a
theoretical knowledge of Canada, and
our lantern' slides of Canadian scenery
are much asked tor and desired hy such
About 1,500 lectures on Canada were
delivered during the autumn, winter
and spring. The Canadian Pacific
Railway had initiated a series of animated photographs of Canada, Its scenery and It* industries.
In referring to the limited field in the
United Kingdom from which to draw
immigrant*, Lord Strathcona says:
"We only encourage persons with capital, farmers, farm laborers, and domestic servants. I have explained the difficulties that tend to prevent the immigration of this class ou as large a scale
as we would like, and a good deal of
our efforts is now directed to preventing
undesirable immigration."
''Although our Inquiry is very large
both personally and % correspondence,
the greater part of it comes from people who have no means to emigrate.
Capitalists and farmer* are slow to
emigrate in any case, and the other
classes are doing better thah at any
previous time, and except among some
of the younger members of ihe families,
there I* not enough enterprise and that
disposition to tlook ahead whish often
leads to Immigration Still we are getting good results from our work, and I
am very hopeful that our immigration
will continue to grow in the future."
Some of tbe colonies offer free passages, yet it Is admitted In steamship
circles that Canada gets a large proportion and the cream of the immigration
which leaves the United Kingdom.
'���Our immigration work,*^ savs the
high commissioner, -'would be greatly
assisted by more help from Canada.
Personally I would like to see immi-
jrratioo on-tmittees formed In alL��he|
electoral districts of Canada. Not only
would they **sist the government
agents m receiving aad looking after
new arrival*, hut they, would assist the
progress of new settlers snd persuade
them to keep in communication with
their friends in the United Kingdom,
and to write to districts whence thev
came, relating (heir experience and offering to correspond with-tbose contemplating emigration."

The flrst era cargoes were loaded at
the western end of Lake Superior early
last month, and the year was fairly
opened that is destined to be a record
breaker in wore ways than one. Up to
May last year there had r*s*s*d out of
Lake Superior, not Including shipments
from J_jc*na_e,252,000 gross tons of ore,
and for the aame period of the preceding year, 2,500 tons, while for April,
1806, the shipments were 75,000 tons
So an opening at May 1, this year, Is
not so far behind the average of recent
years, excluding 1898, snd when the
added facilities lor rapid work at both
ends of the line and in the middle are
considered, the present situation is not
at all desperate. Mav's movements from
all upper lake ports was nearly 54,000,-
000 tons.
It has been reported the last few days
that J J. Hill, of the Great Northern
road, had decided to enter the Vermillion rpnge and had prospectors and sur-
vevors In the field to this end Nothing
could be farther from the truth Mr
Hill is considering two routes for his
time to the Eastern Msnaba, one requiring but 22 miles of construction and
the other twice as much, but shortening
the haul verv considerably It is probable le will huild the twenty-two miles

Price not Gioen.
A deal was consummated yesterday
by which tho Madison group of three
claims, tbe properly of J. C. Eaton
was sold to McCuaig, Rykert and Co.
of Montreal.
The Madison is considered one of
the best prospects in the district and
recent development has shown up
some extensive bodies of high grade
ore. Only three weeks Ago W. W.
Warner, who has been working the
proerty tinder a lease struck an ore
chute in the No 3 tunnel on the Argenta claim whieh showed 10 inches
of grey copper giving an aggregate
assay Value of over $300 to the ton.
A contract was let to Mr Warner
5'esterday to run 100 feet on No 4,
which is'now in 25 teet and for 400
feet on No 5, which will be started
to-morrow. All these tunnels sre being driven in on the ledge. Sixteen
men will be put to work immediately
working three shifts.
W. w. Warner engineered the
deal for Mr Eaton, and Bernard McDonald experted'for the purchasers.
It was a cash transaction, of which
the price is not made public.
Doc (ileason, an old timer in this
district, made an ineffectual attempt
to quit this world on Thursday morning. Doc, who has been working
with Jim Sproles at the Sproles' siding hotel, came to town early in the
week and put up at The Denver.
He has been in poor health and somewhat reduced circainstauc**s lately
and, deciding that life was a harden,
attempted to shuttle iff by severing
an artery in his arm. Homer De-
puis, one of the staff at The Denver,
who found him a few moments after,
a mass of blood and animation, reported to the police that they had a
suicide up at their house who was
not dead yet. Medical aid was summoned and the man sent to the hos
pital. Gleason has seen better days
and does not readily reconcile himself to his reduced circumstances.
Engineer Maxwell of the K. * si.
arrived from Kaslo Thursday and
left over the C, P. R. yesterday
morning for Trout Lake accompanied
by E. C. Balmaine and a party of
surveyors. They will, commence
the survey of the Kaslo A Lardo-
Duncan Ry. right-of-way from the
Trout Lake end and will continue
until they meet the surveyors from
