Capital, Labor, Anarchy, etc.
An editor works 365ft days per
year to get out fifty-two issnes of a
paper; that's labor. Once in a while
somebody pays a year's subscription;
that's capital. And once in a while
some son of s gun of a dead beat
takes the paper for a vear or two and
vanishes without paying for it: that's
anarchy. But later on, justice will
overtake the last named creature,
for there is a place where he will
get his just deserts; that's hell.
Light Houses.
A special dispatch to the Post-Intelligencer says .*
Spokane, Oct- 22.-One of the
largest faro games that has been
plaved In Spokane for some time
took place at Harry Green's club
rooms today. John J. Malone, the
well-known Tacoma politician, and
John Harris, one of the stock-holders
of the famous Reco mine at Slocan,
were the high rollers who went up
against the game.
The two players started in at 4
o'clock this morning and quit at 6
this evening. At one stage of the
game this morning the hank was
nearly I10.00J winner, then luck
changed and Harris and Malone had
won out nearly all the checks in the
rack, representing about i?9,000,
besides their own money. Green
fearing his bank wa* going under,
wired his game at the Owl at Seattle
for |5,000. Before it was needed,
however, luck changed to the bank
rnd when they quit at 6 o'clock to
light Harris was winner 12,400 and
Malone $150. Green during the
j-ame raised the limit to (500. The
���jame attracted a crowd all day-
Trouble at the Standard.
Wallace, Idaho, Oct. 24.-When
Dan Conner, a shift boss at the big
Standard mine, came out Satunlav
uight to the dry room to eat his mid
aight supper, he was met by tour
masked men armed with revolvers
who ordered him to get out of the
country within 24 hours. He pleaded that he wss a married man with
i wife and children at Gem, and
isked for a week irr which to comply
with the demands. After some parleying he was granted three days,
with the threat that if he was not out
in that time they would dispose of
hint, his wife and his children, cleaning the family out root snd branch.
It ts said that he was ordered to
leave because he had discharged
���sane men who were not doing their
work in a satisfactory manner.
Where Nonet] ia Lost.
The London Times has been giving
some thought to the test of gold pro
duction and has published considerable correspondence on the subject.
It Is estimated that 20,000 persona
went into tbe Yukon country at an
estimated cost tea* transportation,
supplies, etc., of ��160 for each per
son. making a total expenditure of
��3,200,000. It is doubtful if the
year's product of gold wil amount
to two-thirds this sunt when correct
returns are made, and It can be
easily seen that the loss ia largely on
the side of the gold seekers.
The fighting blood of the old Covenanters still runs in the members ot
the Dundee Presbytery of the established church of Scotland. At a
meeting not long ago a motion was
introduced favoring the disarmament
proposition of the Ctar of Russia.
An ordinary lavman might think
that the doctrine of peace and good
will would la* welcomed in sn assembly of clergymen. On the contrary,however, 'the reverrred gentlemen voted the motion down by seventeen to seven, and decland thst
Great Britain should ado|* a plan of
conscription to provide sufficient re*

should very much doubt if the total
reaches $10,800,000. Tbe wild stories of
the mineral wealth of the Yukon district
are very much exaggerated. Certainly
there are one or two places very well
sprinkled with the yellow metal, but for
every one that strikes such a spot hundreds search in vain. This coming

Good times will come to a comparatively speedy end if everybody rushes
into extravagance.   A steady period of
activity, based upon solid business, will
he far better than  a "regular boom"
with its inevitable  reaction.   A  large
proportion of tlie American people are
quick to take chances, and in their self-
confidence to go ;beyond their depth in
both their business and manner of living.
The level headed in all occupations, says
an exchange, realise that the time is at
hand   to make   money���not so much
through  extraoidinary   prices    as   by
activities in   buying  and selling, close
economies in production and marketing,
and Uie wipin.-r out of debts with a consequent saving in interest. Then having
(gotten a little ahead, the shrewd ones
will know how to invest it safely against
the than! times   which  in   Uie   natural
course of  things  may la? expected to
come again at some date in the future.
If a man be level head he will recognise
value of this caution; if he is not he will,
rush into some extravagance (that wont
do him any good, but that others will j
profit by) and will he no better off when j
the next bard times strikes us.

Indications point to a general
election within a year. Both political parties are busy organizing all
over the fat Dominion snd there will
be a not time in Canada when the
event takes place. As a side-show
to the main drens, British Colombia
will probably have a borne election
abont tbe same time. Newspaper
men will please get their mitts ready.
Speaking in a recent interview In
London in regard to the Closing of
the agent-general's office there by
the E C. government, 8ir Charles
Tnpper said: "I consider It of the utmost iiiiDortat.ce that the government of Britis** Colombia sboold have
a well-informed agent here thorough-
ly acquainted with British Columbia,
and sble to give persons interested in
this country reliable Information,
particnlsrly at the present time,
when so man\ events of tnomentous
importance in the development of the
province are occurring. The interests of British Colombia demand that
there should be some agency for the
distribution of accurate information
regarding the country. So moeh
British capital kr already employed
in tlte development of the TYorince
and Canada generally that it is absolutely indispensable that statistical
and other data* should be readily
forthcoming from some office situated
in tbe city."
All thst Sir Charles says is fully
realized by the provincial government It was, indeed, the foil real
izationofthe importance of such an
office as he refers to being established
In London that led to the closing of
the office presided over by Mr. Forbes
The London Star of Sept 3a prints
a letter bearing directly upon the
question, which will give British
Columbians a better understanding
of the causes that prompted the cutting off of Mr. Vernon's tat office that
was so difficult to find, being located
ter away from tbe busiiieai centre in
s isshiorutble suburb of Lsorrdon. The
Star cotrespondent says, in part:
"I think it is rather rough on the
most startlinglv progressive province
of the Dominion that its accredited
agent in London should lead interviewers to suggest that British Col
umbtaisin any sense ���"retreating"
and obtain for the opinion the im
nortanoe of an expression in the
finance column of tbe Star.
"Mr. Vernon it an honorable gentleman who has done yeoman service
for his government in ancient times
after the ancient methods, and surely
with his shrewd Hibernian instinct
he must be able to recognize that in
these wide-awake modern days,
pushing British Columbians demand
value for their money, and be cannot
honestly think British Crsumbiahss
gained value even to the amount of
5 per sent on his good round salary
by the existence of the office over
which be sn faithfully presides.
When, In 1894, tbe electors would
not find him a suitable appointment
at home, he was opportunately pitchforked into the snug little oerth
vacated by Premier Turner's partner, and instead of teeming ag
grieved at the carrying out of a long
contemplated policy, he should feel
lucky thos to have found active service tor his patriotism for to longs
time, British ColamWs it tbe young
hopeful of Canaan, and the alert staff
at the high commissioner's offices in
Victoria street will not allow Information seekers to go sway hungry."

I doubt if even tbe boldest and bravest

The lira two. Jack Seaton and Eli
Carpenter sre both reported dead.
Carpenter gave bis name to tbe creek
which flows by Sandon and Three

Ibis creefe seven vear* ago that thev
��tombled upon the Payne mine It
wss a rich galena or silver-lead mine,
and when they found it they hastened
hack to Ainswortb to have the ore
a-waved Some fiaagreement arose be
fween tbem and they parted, and
Seaton returned to tbe district with
lack Mdiuisjan, Jack Hennessey and
Hill Hetmeswev Thev arrived before
Carpenter, and they located the Maid
of Erin, the Mountain Chief and the
Two Jacks���all extensions of the
Pavne. and then located the Noble
Five, tbe Laaf Chance and a number of
other*. Stephen Bailey bought the

Eli Carpenter and Jack Seaton reaped
hul small reward from their great discovery, for Seaton lies in an obscure
gn.ve, and Carpenter, if rumor speaks
true, perished in the Klondike while
hunting for another stake McCune on

the Payne which places him among the

Sandon like every other town and
village that I have ever known has its
J rest man, iu king, its village Hamp-
en.   J.  M.  Harris  is  the   King of
Sandon.   Away hack in civil war davs
Johnny Harris grew np amid the corn
and  tobacco   fields of   old  Virginia.
Those were dark days for the old Dominion, for ruin and desolation followed
in the wake of war.   The oldest and
wealthiest  families  were reduced  to
poverty, and there was nothing left for
the youth of the countrv but to seek for
fortune in fresh fields and pastures.
Johnny Harris while! still a mere boy
came to the mining regions of Idaho
He  was young,  inexperienced and of
slight physique, and for years worked
al odds and ends, and worked the fickle
goddess of fortune with a most admirable persistency.   Even in those davs
Johnny Harris'was a dreamer.   In the
gorges of the Rockies, on the slopes of
the forest clothed mountains, in the log
cabin or beside the lonely camp fire, he
was wont to dream of the home of his
youth, and he vowed that some day he
would return thither and buy himself a
home and a plantation, where he would
live the ideal life of old Virginia planters   It was in the midst of these dreams
and of sore disappointments and distress that Harris heard of the first discoveries of Slocan. and immediately he
stampeded for the new country.   He
secured a third interest in a prospect
called  the  Iteco  for s few  hundred
dollars, and the Reco was a bonanza for
Johnny Harris.   It has made him the
king >? Sandon.   He has a monopoly of
the lakes, the light and water plants,
the trade, and even the gossip of the
city, and he wears  his rewards and
honors well.
And his day dream is at last accomplished, for away back in old Virginia
in the midst of broad acres, gardens,
meadows, orchards and com stands a
magnificent mansion, of which J. M.
Harris is the lord and master, and thus
it has come to pass that the wealth of
British Columbia has enabled Johnny
Harris to achieve his day dreams and
to return to old Virginia to live henceforth in baronial splendour and in luxurious case.
The Reco hss two veins, and in one
of these is a band of galena that is
fsbulouslv rich. They mine ore that
runs as high as 110.000 to the ton. But
thev can ontv ship in winter, for theore
must be raw-hided on the snow. The
mine has paid about 1980,000 in dividends, and it has hardly been touched
*8The Slocan Star is another of the
Sandon mines that has made fortunes
for its owners. 1 am glad to state that
discoveries in the lowest tunnel are of
such a nature that the Slocan Slar is a
than ever.   The Ruth ts
aie but a foretaste of the far vaster
riches which in course of time these
mountains will bring forth.

A sad case ia reported from Ssncs.
About 20 miles north of tbe place named
there sre several very promising mineral
claims, and a couple of weeks sines Jos
Hooker visited the district intending to
complete hia year'a assessment work.
He was looking for help, snd waa told
that he might possibly secure tbe services of Ernest Peirie. a native*bom
Frenchman who has been prospecting
snd trapping in the Kootensy* for tlie
past 10 or 12 years. Going lo the cabin,
Hooker found tbe Frenchman iu what
be considered a dying condition and
hastened to anprit**- tlie sufferer's friends
of the stats of affaire. He went to the
cabin of another Frenchman, known as
Alec? some eight miles distant, and told
him that if he would attend toPeiiie's
wants the case would be duly reported
at Nelson. Alec st once prt*ceetled to
the sti-k man's Iwdetde, aud Hooker
headed for Nelson to report. As soon aa
the latter represented ths esse to Gold
Commiasioner Dennis that official dispatched four men tothescene of trouble,
instructing litem to bring the man to
Nelson for hospital treatment if his con*
dition would allow it. Meanwhile Alee
waa assiduously attending to the wants
of the Sufferer. At the head of Peirie'a
couch waa a rifle, always kept loaded,
trapper style.   Peirie remarked to his
friend one dsy thst death wMwnatfinss
too alow in calling s sufferor sway, snd
expressed the opinion that one who wss
in torture and without* hope of relisf
would be justified in expediting ths
death message From thia Alec nstur*-
attv inferred that the ritte waa too convenient for a man in thia frame of mind,
and consequently removed it, hiding ths
weapon behind tbe csbin door. A Isw
horns afterwards Alec went out to chop
some wood and as bo prot-eeded on hia
journey fancied he heard an unusual
noise in the csbin. He returns*) to And
Peirie lying helpless on the Hoor. Ths
explanation given wss thst he had fallen
f mm tbe bed, but tlie dsy alter th s incident Peirie remarket! lo hia faithful
attendant, "I told you 1 fell out of my
bunk. 1 lied. 1 tried to get hold of thst
gun, but 1 could not get there. 1 have
since been troubled to think that If 1
got it and blew my brains out, what
Double 1 would have got you into, my
friend. You would have been taken lor
s murderer.   Forgive me, my friend."
trrASTa o�� hm last JoesasY.
As soon ss beln arrived from Nelson,
Peirie was put on an improvised stretcher, and the party started oil for Nelson.
With s aick msn in charge, tlie smooth-
eat track was sought and streams were
forded rather than take tbe brush, list
all in vain. As soon aa Ma��vsrorte Basin
waa reached tlie men n**dv**d to put up;
for the night in tbe old shark which did
service ss s store during tbe it roues
Creek boom. They lighted up tlte Hre,
put the sick man in chase pmiinuty, and
proc*-eded to prepare supper Hut p��">r
PeiriVs hours were numbered, snd aa hi*
attendant were prof taring him f<��r a

Miss Jane Coomlis, one of the most
cultured and eloquent interpreters of
female character now adorning the
American stage, closed the most
brilliant engagement of the season at
ford's f.rand Opera House last evening. At nearly every representation
ftiaiiding room was in demand.
By her rare merits, personal as
well sa professional, MissGioinbs has
made herself an established favorite
from Boston to Kan Francisco. Beautiful and commanding In person, with
s strangely sweet and carefully culti-
vsted voice : refined, quiet and natural in her style of scting, never
omitting the most trifling detail, nor
availing herself of any of the usual
theatrical tricks to manufacture sen-
nations���she has won her wav into
the hearts of all admirers of true
dramatic art Her celebrity as an
actress dates back for several years,
and tlie ablest critics in America admit that her personifications sre ss
t tents in a Diadem of Art." She is s
strict adherent to the legitimate
4choo! of dramatic art, and her successes are justly deserved. The eloquence of her features in expressing
her emotions illustrates the spoken
effecr of the linea.nnd tire picturesque-
new. tlie groupings, to a very marked and unusual degree. Miss Coombs
is one of the tew great American
actrt*staf>*, and she seems to avoid on
principle any tiring that can suggest
��� xaggeration. Her ideas sre embodied with s grace of esse that
* peak a of studied social and physical
trsining.as well as purely profeasion-
al culture. In the strongest and
mo��4 passionate characters she never
verges upon the melodramatic, never hlnrs at a wish for applause, never
exhibits anything but dramatic
un tal of the true ring. She assumes
a wide range of the meal difficu't
characters, but they are all rendered
with such artistic power and finish,
til absolute truth, that her identity
is tost, and we see before us the
living embodiment of the character
she represents. Miss Coombs can
slwsys depend u|*��n a warm wel*
come, nav, an ovation, whenever
she visits .laltimore."
Mi�� Jane Coombs will appear m
Spencer's hall during the esrly part
of next month. She will impersonate
a | number ot characters, and is sup-
is died by a strong company.

Ths True Blua.
Work on the True Blue group of
copper claims on the mountain just
back of Kaslo, has been prosecuted
all last spring snd summer under
the charge of Foreman Stevenson,
one of the former owners of the property. The work hss been largely on
the tunnel which his been run to
crosscut the ledge, which had dipped
and broken over. It is tbe intention now to run snother tunnel further down the mountain than the
first, which will consequently give
much greated depth for stoping when
tbe ledge is reached.
At present there is a force ot 20
men employed on the property, and
it is given out thst this number is
likely to be largely augmented in
the near future. It Is the intention
to build a substantial trail to the
lake snd the citizens of Ksslo hsve
been asked to contribute one-half the
cost and hsve it come direct to the
city. Otherwise, is is likely to reach
Kootenay lake near Mirror Iske. t
small sheet of water about two miles
from Kaslo. It is probable thst arrangements will be made to build tbe
trail into the city.

Tanner Stands His Ground.
Chicago, III., Oct* 27.���A special
to the Times-Herald from Madison,
III., says: "I reiterate I will not tolerate this wholesale importation of
foreigners into Illinois, and if I hear
that a train is to be brought into this
state, such aa was taken into Virden,
I care not on what railroad it come,
or for whom, I will meet*it at the
state line, and shoot it to pieces with
gatling guns."
So declare J Governor Tanner in s
speech delivered before 1200anditors
gathered at the Knights of Pythias
hall in this city. It was the concluding statement in au address la rgely
devoted to the defense of his cause at
the recent mine riots at Virden. The
governor reviewed at great length
the causes leading up to the rioting.
He held the operators st fault in
their dealings with the strikers and
then, reverting to his acts when the
crisis came, said: "When the United
States found it necessary and deemed it just to forbid the importation: of
foreign labor into this country, I felt
that I wss fully justified in the course
I took at Virden."
