The Comique is essentially a western institution, and is rarely found
in Canada. It is generally a dirty-
dive, with a bar in front, boxes
around the walls, and a stage upon
which fine art is murdered every
evening. The principal business f
a Comique is to sell beer, wine and
whiskey. If a miner drops in to see
the performance snd takes a seat in
the pit he is continually annoyed by
a floor walker who never lets up his
song about "Beer, Whiskey and
Cigars!" If he goes into a private
box four or five ancient damsels will
buzz around him with great thirst
stories. If they can get him started
to buy drinks they will never let up
on tbe poor miner until his money is
exhausted or be becomes too full for
utterance. A man who goes against
their game always quite loser.
There is nothing beneficial in a
Comique. It ia an institution which
should not be allowed to exist in any
community, and it does not reflect
credit upon snv bitv that it will
allow such dives to exist. They
breed trouble, snd tend to demorai
ize a community. There is reason
in  all  things,' and  an  institution
whose chief industry is the coaxing
of men to fill up with boozerino
should be turned down  by the iron
hand of tbe law.

of stealing tbe appropriations for

Klondike Gold.
A correspondent writes to the
Boundary Creek times that coarse
free gokC yielding 10 to 15 cents to
tbe pan, has just been discovered on
Baker creek, about one mile across
the international boundary line from
Sidley P. 0. The discovery caused
considerable excitement in that
vicinity, and Baker creek has been
staked up to the line.
The descovery   was   made   by-
Henry Vinson* an old timer in these
parts.   He is making sluice boxes to
-start washing.   The gold was seen
by the correspondent, and he states
that tbe indications for good diggirgs
are the best lie has ever seen.   The
gold is found in a very peculiar position.   It is in the bed ot  the creek.
There is first a stratum if gravel,
then a foot of clay, and underneath
the clay is more gravel.   On the top
of this, under the stratum of clay,
the gold has been found.   How far
it goes down has not yet been determined owing to the water.    Ten
years ago two men named Ruppert
and McPhee took ont 110 a day for
about two months on this same creek
where it empties into Rock Creek,
but, when they csme to the clay and
found nothing In   it   they never
thought of going below.   It appears
that there roust have   been  two
washes.    At  the time ot writing
only three locations were made on
tbe American side.   There is about
four miles of the Baker creek in Canadian territory.   It has been worked
over here and there for surface diggings, but going below the clay is a
new departure.    The creek goes
nearly dry in the fell, but at present
there Is plenty of water.

The bravery of the home guard is
proverbial in history. Now in Spain,
a cabinet council has condemned
Captain-General Torsi's surrender
of the military division of Santiago,
and intends to court-martial him aa
toon as the details of the surrender

Several men have recently arrived
in camp at Lake Bennett, direct from
Dawson City, and they all speak In
terms that sound almost extravagant
of the probable output of gold  this
year and the splendip promise of the
newer discoveries.   The other day
one such enthusiast���a certain Peter
Calvin   came to Lake Bcnnet with
a pack full of nuggets, which be proceeded to give away aa keepsakes to
friends, and even canal acquaintances, as if they  were things of liitle
value.   He   gave  Major   Steele  a
handsome nugget worth fully 945,
and in doing so spoke as though he
were merely giving him a match to
light his pipe.   He is, of course, one
of the  lucky ones,   and no doubt
thousands might have made nothing
where he has made a  fortune; but,
still, such incidents show that certainly very rich ground is there.
This Mr. Calvin stated that the nuggets lie was bestowing so carelessly
were picked up out of s shovelful ol
earth that yielded over 91500 in gold.
He cautioned  his  hearers against
supposing thst there wss much soil
as rich  as this ? but the fact that
even  a  few such shovelfuls can be
picked  up is regarded ss a very
hopeful Indication.

against 1*1,300 tons in tne previous year
and 9,511 tons in 1895 The average
valued these ores in 1897 was 197.70

United States at a cost, adding freight,
ef $22 a ton, to which must be added
the United States duty on the lead, cost
of mining, sacking and delivering to
shipping port; the profit was from $50
to -S55 per ton. It is worthy of notelthat
some Slocan silver-lead mines have
lately been transferred to British companies, whilst others are being examined witb the same object. Claims upon
which little development work haa been
done aud held at high figures can now
be bought at prices likely to be more
attractive to capitalists.
fast disappearing, with the certainty
that they can be treated profitably. In
this connection tbe following Hjuresare
interesting: 68,804 tons of ttossland
copper-gold ore averaging $80,48 per
ton returned a profit of $1*2 to $l'i per
ton; 83,57'> tons of Slocan ore assaying
108.5 silver per ton, and 45.7 percent,
lead, gross value $97.70 per ton, returned a profit of |j0 to $35 per ton.
"The district of West Kootenay contributed over 95 per cent, of the output
Of bide mines in 1897. This is accounted for as much bv the natural waterways and short lines of railway whicii
open it up and facilitate tbe shipment
of ores as by the richness or extent of
ths ores themselves.
"In the Trail Creek division, of which
llosslaud is the centre, developments of
the past year have tended to confirm
tbe belief in the permanency of the lode
veins Although the number of shipping mines has not iargelv increased,
tne output nearly doubled that of tbe
previous 12 months. It is well-known
that many claims in this division are
unworked at present on account of the

However, tbe World is about as
rabid a Government organ as

Here's what the Nelson Economist
says of the Opposition:
Already the Opposition party, who are claiming a complete victory, are setting their bouse in
order in anticipation of taking over the establishment. At a meetiuK held In Vancouver the

the World had in contemplation the
sure-thing dodge that has been thrust
upon the voters of Cassia r, referred to
by the News-Advertiser thnalv:
The Caastar outrage is the topic of etmvaOtS

feeling is that tbe Turner g>v<-rnin<iit is dying

outrage ii hss tried to perpetrate; the rir��t �� ��.

The Velvet has been successfully floated in London by the New Gold Fields of
British Columbia, as Velvet Mines, limited. The new company bas a capital of
fit00,000. of which the New Gold Fields
retains a large holding. James Morrish
will remain tn charge of the property,
and his son, John Morrish, is now en
route fr< m London to take tbe assistant
managership of the property. The development of the Velvet continues very
satisfactorily. In tbe north drift, at tbe
100-foot level, some excellent malachite
is being met, which is not often found in
thi* camp. Much aood copper ore is also
being encountered, mixed witb .white
quarts ami black speculiar iron. There
are 24 men at work now and the force is
to be lightly increased. Captain Morrish
is now getting together a shipment of
about a ton of representative rock from
tbe property, which will be shipped to
the Gold Extraction A; Bromine Recovery Company, limited, of London, to be
tested as to its susceptibility to tbe treatment of that company, which has lieen
unusually successful iu reducing t-melt-
ing ores carrying cop|ier, such as are
found in the Velvet, and in fact all over

process that it is far cheaper than anything previously invented.
A Kean Anecdote.���In playing Richard III, Charles Kean indulged in a
series of dreadful grimaces which the
convention of the  times  regarded as
appropriate accessories of the role. He
was playing the piece in a prominent
town, and had occasion to take on a
man to act the part of the Sentinel, who
awakes Richard and announces: '* Tis
I, mv lord, the village clock hath twice
proclaimed the hour of morn.'' I'nfor-
tumttci.v Kean made such dreadful
irruuaces that the*Sentinel forgot his
line** and stammered: "Tis I. mv
lord j the village cock ! Tis I, my lord,
the���village cock!" By this time there
was a decided titter all* over the house,
sod Kean then aaid i "Then why the
mischief don t you crow?'' which, needless to say, brought down the house
the new shaft on the upper end of the
ground is completed and in working
order, it will be possible to handle
almost any amount of ore, as the railway track'will be but a few feet from the
shaft house and the cars can be loaded
right from tbe ore bins.

A Reoietc of Sandon'a Output for
the Year.
Sre-wed himself as much surprised to
nd such comfortable facilities afforded travellers in a new country. No
doubt Sandon will receive prominent
mention In his new book.
The shipments of ore from Sandon
tor the year ending July 31st is,
according to tbe table kept by the
Paystreak, 27,352* tons. While
these figures may not represent the
exact amount of ore shipped from
Sandon during the year, they are an
approximately correct statement.
The Payne �� the banner shipper
with over 12,000 tons to its credit.
The Ruth takes second place with
about 6000 tons shipped. In both instances this is clean ore. The Star,
although not on the shipping list for
several months last winter, Is third
with 4000 tons or thereabouts. A
large proportion of this is concentrates which, generally speaking,
represents 5 or 7 tons of crude ore to
one of the concentrated. The Idaho
shipped 3386 tons, of which also a
large part was concentrates. The
Last Chance follows with 1-444 tons.
This property, which is destaiued to
take a place right near the head of
tlie list, was shut down, except for
development, most of the winter on
account oi the danger of snow-slides.
The Reco, which ships the highest
grade ore in the camp, sent down
1128 tons. Very little ore is shipped
from the Reco during the summer
as packing is considered too expensive a method of transportation.
When the projected tramway is
built the property will be a much
heavier shipper. Among the smaller
shippers there are many that will
greatly increase their output during
the coming year. The 204 tons
credited to the Queen Bess does not
by any means represent the shipments from that property, as much
of their ore was-sent via Concentrator Siding, of which we had no record. This now valuable mine is
looked to for heavy shipments during
the coming-year. *
It is a safe prediction that the
shipments for the last six months of
the fiscal year, from July 1st to Dec
3lst, 1898, will be 60 per cent, greater than tor any corresponding period
in the history ot the Slocan district.
It is the intention to make the records of shipments in the Payctreak
more comprehensive and thoroughly
reliable. Commencing with next
week, but dating from July 1st we
will endeavor to give all the shipments for the district from New
Denver to Whitewater. We would
consider it a favor on the part of the
mining* men if they would make corrections when necessary.
A Distinguished Visitor.
Sandon had the honor of a vbit
this week from a gentleman who in
his own country is recognized as a
man of parts. J. W. C. Haldane, of
Liverpool, England, who registered
at the Reco on Wednesday,is an
author lecturer and scientist,- and is
a recognized authority on railroad,
civil and mechanical engineering
and steamship machinery, on each of
which be haa written some valuable
He Is now travelling across Canada at a guest of the C. P. R., carrying credentials from Van Home, fbr
the purpose of writing up the country
In a work which he is to call "3,800
Miles Across Canada."
Mr. Haldane was much taken up
with the unique location and general
characteristics of Sandon, and ex-
Was not Appreciated.
Guy Thompson, who was born on a
prairie schooner, raised on the hurricane deck of a kiuse, and can ride
anything tbat wears hair, undertook
to give an equestrian exhibition on
Reco Avenue on Wednesday evening. Chief Doolan, while admitting
that the young gentleman waa an
accomplished bronco rider, did not
think that hippodrome exhibitions or
public trials of speed were exactly
the thing on the city's crowded
thoroughfare, so the young vaquero
slept in the embrace of the law.
Judge Lilly was of the same opinion.
Mr. Thompson paid 18.75 Into the
citv treasury, just a little over *K�� a
minute for his ride. The Judge says
this idea of using Reco Avenue for a
race track hat got to be dropped.'
A harmless drunk appeared before
the beak on Thursday. He was advised to go up the mil and find a
A Long Tunnel.
The ground was broken Monday
morning on the Whitewater D.t-p
long tunnel, preparation for which
has been under way for several
The site is almost on a level with
the K. & S, track, just below Whitewater, affording a fine dump and at
the same time accomodation fbr a
spur which will be put In soon.
When completed the tunnel will lap
the lead 500 feet below the present
workings and 1500 feet below the
-surface. It will require the greater
part ot a year in running and will
bj 1800 feet in length. The compressor plant, whicii will be put in
position shortly, will run machines
in the upper works as well as the
new tunnel.   .
