ratio of 22 to 1 would have the effect
of increasing  the  present  price of

When a movement was made to
celebrate Dominion Day in Sandon i
it was deemed advisable to postpone |
the event until- some more auspicious
occasion, lj��bor Day being generally
coiiskteiv<l the projer date, Labor
Day comes on Sept. 5th, just three
weeks from Monday next. No move
has yet been made to celebrate, in
a couple of hour* over 1603 was
subscribed for the Dominion Day
celebration. There is no doubt that
twice that amount could now be
raisitl to celebrate Labor Day.
There is a larger payroll now than
there has been for over a year, and
halt the population is just sailing
for a celebration. All that is lacking is a little public spirit and en
Accident on the Ruth Road.
George Daphenhaker, wlw drivesI
a Ruth ore team, met with an'
accident on Wednesday. Just above
the switchback to the Star road the
brake broke and the wagon loaded
with five tons of ore started down
the hill. George tried to turn the
leaders up the bank but the wagon
struck and instantly killed the off
wheeler, turned over, and threw the
ore and driver into a promiscuous
heap on the roadside. Daphenhaker
was badly bruised but not seriously
injured. He will be around again
in a few days.

The Comique
It seems a pity to throttle such a
thriving: industry, but the Comique
must go. It is obnoxious, demoralizing and detrimental to the best interests of the community. Its use
fulness, if it ever had any., is departed. Its evil influences, moral and
financial, are patent to all. The
city council has decided to take a
plebiscite on the question. The vote
will probably be taken within thirty
days. There are 137 property own-
in the city who will be asked to express an opinion on the subject.
There is no doubt that the ancient
damsels with the six-inch skirts and
the Death Valley thirst will shortly
find their occupation gone. The
building might conveniently lie turn
ed into a livery stable after the show
is shut np.
Unrecorded Stakes.
There is an abuse prevalent among
prospectors in this province which is
the occasion of a great deal of harm
i.i many of the mining districts. A
prospector starts off on his hunt for
claims, providing often tor two or
three months' stay in the mountains.
The first showing of mineral he
c ��mes across he stakes out, and proceeds to hunt for more, which when
found is also staked by him. In this
manner during his sojourn in tbe
hills, he may put his posts up on
many claims, scattered possibly over
a large range of country. By the
time he gets back to a recording
office the time during which numbers of these claims should have
been recorded has run out, or possibly he has concluded that they are
not worth recording, and at all
events, for one reason or another,
they remain unrecorded, while the
stakes are still left standing.
Of course, this prospector has only
skimmed over tbe ground, doing no
genuine prospecting work, and it is
therefore probable, and the case
often happens, that other more conscientious prospectors, following him
over the same ground, have discovered on these unrecorded claims
good showings of ore which would
warrant the record being made, and
the assessment work lading proceeded with. But here are tbe claims
already staked, and the prospectors
that follow the original stakcr almost
invariably pass over the ground,
paying little or no attention to it,
and move further on to seek "virgin
In this manner and for this reason
large areas of promising ground
have been dc'serted. The Injury inflicted is a substantial one, and some
method of abating it should be adopted.   Critic

Lake vessels arc nearing the
8,000-ton mark for cargoes. The
John T. Fritz, the latest addition to
the Bessemer or Rockefeller fleet,
loads 7,794 net tons of iron ore on a

be the record until the next addition
to the Rockefeller fleet comes out.

Morning Mill Completed.
The Morning mill, at Mullen,
Idaho, is now practically completed,
aud is probably the best equipped
concentrator in the Ceeur d'Alenes.
It has a capacity of 800 tons of crude
ore daily, which is abmnt 250 tons
more titan any other silver-lead concentrator now in operation in tbe
world. Ail the latest and best improvements in machinery, connections, jigs, cut-offs, etc., have been
used and the mill will be running

Duluih, Minn.���Iron ore shipments
from Minnesota have so far been 270,000
tons greater than last year to this date,
ami from all the lake region they are
more than a million tons in excess of any
preceding year, to a corresponding time.
There is not the slightest doubt that the
total for the year from Lake Superior
will amount to 15.000.000 tons and this
great increase over all prior year* will
result in an increase in the prices of lake
ores another season, if not later thia year.
While the price* for which most one are
selling is better by from 10 to 25 cents
than in 1*07, the Mesabas are bringing
as little ami, in many cases, even leas
than last year. An additional price for
labor make* the situation almost unbearable for these miners, and they will
make a strong effort to get into the general ore pool, or trust, next season.
Two new mines began mining on the
Meeaha Uiia week, the Klha, a Minnesota
Iron Company property, and Pillsbury,
belonging to the Jtockfeller combination.
The former is an underground mine, ami
of very high grade, ami the latter ia bales] operated by the open pit milling process. It is stated that an average product of 60 tons per day par man can be
made at thia latter mine, which will lie
a record-breaking output for anything
except the steam shovel mines. At the
Pillshurv an area of 250 feet square baa
been strtp|��d of earth, and the working
shaft sunk under the bottom of the ore
beside the stripping.   Prom the foot of

beside the stri
this shaft a drift has been run

*u~  stripped area
at the top of the raises. These men
loosen the ore around the, tops of the
raises and it falls down into the cars
stationed at the drifts, numerous small
craters like those oi a volcano, appearing
where the men are at work, until in time
the ere is all cleaned out and the mine
abandoned. This is a new process for
mining ore sod one that gives remarkable results. It is destined to revolutionise mining operation wherever it is
practicable. It is a development 'of
the peculiar conditions arising on the
Mesaha range.
Want   Dividend   Properties.
Q. A. Stimpson, a Toronto mining
operator, who put the War Eagle deal
through for the Gooderham-Blackstock
syndicate, and who was in England last
summer, says the great demand there
among investors is for dividend-paying
properties, and he is satisfied that with
tbe advent of a few more dividend-paying properties among the companies
now handled in the old cottutrv, there
would be a tremendous rush of capital
for investment in these fields. Mr.
Stimpson, who besides being a heavy
shareholder in the War Eagle company,
also is interested in the Crows Neat
Pass coalfields, and he says that with
the coining cheap coke to tbe smelters,
the freight and treatment rate for this
district will be reduced to some of the
mines at least to the extent of f 1 50 per
ton. Thus a mine that is now getting
a rate of 07.50 per ton, will get a rate
of 05.

The British Columbia Review,
pnblisbed in London, Eng, is a journal that aspires to the dignified position of an authority on B. C. mining
matters. It is usually correct on
matters of any importance, and It is
surprising that it should have made
such a ridiculous blunder as we find
in its editorial notes in tho issue ol
July 23, when, speaking of the progress of Kootenay, it said:

Thus it is seen the value of Kootenay s silver production was more than
$7,000,000; not $1,000,000, as the
Review attempts to show. And it
should also be taken into considers
tion that the price of silver has fallen
to such a degree that It now requires
almost double the quantity to bring
tbe price of ten years ago, and that,
while in 1887 17,670 ounces brought
$17,331, in 1897 it required 5,572,971
ounces to yield $3,272,836.
A mild comparison is made by the
Review uf the value of Kootenay'*
silver production with the gold output of South Africa. Such a com
parison Is unjust to Kootena y Sil ver

gold, copper or lead, and if the
mineral wealth of Kootenay is to be
compared with that of South Africa,
the value of the gold, copper and
lead taken from the lode mines must
be added to that of silver. In the
past ten years 89,106,1142 pounds of
lead were extracted from the galena
ores, valued at $2,971,618. Not until
18934 were gold and copper taken
from our lode mines In pay ing quantities. Since then the value of these
metals has been: Gold, $4,30^689;
copper, $521,060. These values added to that of silver will give a correct idea of the .Magnitude of Kootena vs lode mines, and give a grand
total of the value of these metals extracted from the ground In ten years
of $15,094,427.
We believe this will compare
favorably with any of the boasted
lode mining countries in the world,

"A total output of $t,000,t(XV as
shown above, may be small when
compared with South Africa, but we
would have tbe public to clearlv
recognise that even British Columbia
must walk ere she can run, and that
Kootenay has progressed in spite of
indifferent development and lack ot
interest in centres where capital is
abundant for industrial expansion.
We repeat that to extract $1,000,000
worth of sil ver from the ground in
ten years under primitive conditions
is an achievement proving the vast
weslth of the district."
This is a remarkable statement
to come from a paper usually as reliable as the Review, and no time
should be lost in rectifying the serious blunder. The effect of such a
statement cannot be treated lightly.
It cannot be passed off as an error of
ignorance, but rather is one of blind
recklessness in tbe use of figures that
have no bearing whatever on the
matter discussed. The figures reproduced by the Review have not
the slightest relativeness to the silver
production of the Kotensy*. They
were taken from a government docu*
racnt showing the increase in revenue
received by the government from
Kootenay in the past ten years, and
give no idea of the metal production
of the district; simply indicate the

of improvement in the great Northern
territory. For several mile- the pioneer
locomotive found rail*? stretching out
before it, and as soon as a bridge is completed the distance that can lie covered
will be materially increased.
There was no ceremony over the event.
A few of Skagway's business men gathered to see the engine start out. and as
she puffed up the grade on Broadway and
out into the valley there was a rush to
see tbe novelty, and that was all. Skag-
way people have not been so It-ng away
from civilisation that the workings of a
locomotive excite them. The engine
1 row two fiat cars loaded with railroad
iron. In a few days others will be added
and with their assistance the work of
road building will progress rapidly.
Seven miles of road-bed have been
graded, and over five miles of this track
nave been laid. Fifteen hundred men
are working as fast as possible to push
tbe road along. Winter, with iu blix-
sards, is fast approaching, snd then
work will be evon more difficult.

In sn illustrated Interview which
appears in the Young Woman for August, Mrs. Bishop tells us that "In
Cores yon never see girls out of doors
In the daytime, except some of the
tower classes going to the wells, and
thev are tied up so that no one can see
them. Women only go out in the
Capital of Corea when a great bell
sounds in the evening. When this is
heard, all men must retire to their
houses. The only men who tnsy go
out are those who are blind, and those
who are going to a druggist's with a
prescription. And as men are deceivers the world over, it is not surprising that a great many men are
'blind,' and that many have to go to
the ���druggist's' when evening comes
Indeed, toe number of hypocrite* who
go about tapping with a stick is rather
ludicrous. On these evening journeys
the Corean women generally visit
their friends. But a wife must not go
out of the house without her husband's
permission. He requires, or may require, proof that a visit has actually
been paid.
"When a Corean women is married,"
says Mrs. Bishop, "she i* allotted a
room or rooms in the seclusion of the
women's apartments. The name be
stowed upon her by her parents soon
after her birth is dropped, and she is
known thereafter only as 'the wife of
so-and-so,' or 'the mother of so-and-so.'
Her husband addresses her by the
words 'ya bu,' signifying 'look here,'
which is significant of Tier relations
to him. Silence is regarded as a wife's
flr��t duty. During the whole of the
mar iage day the bride must b.��. s
mute as a statute; if she says a word,
or even make* a sign, she become*
an object of ridicule, and her silent e
must remain unbroken even in h.r
own room, though her husband may
attempt to break It by taunts, Jeers,
or coaxing, for the female servants are
all oti the qui vive for such a breach
of etiquette as speech, hanging about
the dm r and chinks to catch up and
gossip over a single utterance which
would cause her to lose caste for ever in
her circle.     , ,    ..:.*,.:. #A
"The wife has recognised duties to
her husband, but he lias few, if any,
to her. It is correct for a man to treat
his wife with external mark* of respect,
but he would be an object of scorn and
ridicule If he showed her ejection or
treated her as a companion. Among
the upper classes a brid^ropm, after
passing three or four days with his wile,
leavesherfor a considerable timet��
show his indifference. To act otherwise
would be 'bad form.' *'
A western paper tells a story of sn
epoch in the history of tbe Montana
raining camps, when there was no
money or lawful imrreucy of any kind
in the camps, nor *ny credit to base
a private circulation on, but when
the extremelv high pricdof eatable*
suggested and at the same time supplied the want of a circulating ttted'nut.
< me man who continue* to live in that
region tell* of the time when he
bought a box of matches with a water
melon, anu received as change two
muskmelons. Another paid for a pair
of suspenders in turnips, and got back
a couple carrots with his purchase.
At one time the first man accepted
an invitation to visit a friend and go
to a party with him. After seeing his
friend go through the unusual preparation of blacking his boots and putting
on a collar���for It was to be a verv
'���huTh-toned*' affair���he waa surprised
to see him go to the potato bin and
carefully select a doseu nice potatoes
and put them into his pocket
No sooner had the two men arrived
at tbe hall where the party was to take
place than his beet handed over h����
potatoes for an entrance ticket; and
what was still more surprising, the
donr keeper, after the close of the party,
gave him two onions as "change'" to
take home!���Ex.

"I was running a paper down in Ten-
ne���ce.then," prefaced the ex-newspaper
man, whose only work now ia to collect
what other people owe him in the way
d rents and interest. "One of tbe new

"Upon being informed that I enjoyed

Sow she wanted to put in a nice adver-
tiaernent telling that he was forgiven and
that she longed to have him home sgain.

One of the most interesting problems before the Imperial Government
is the protection of the West Indian
sugar industry from utter destruction I
by the European bounty system. J
Mr. Chamberlain announces that he
cannot pledge the government to establish countervailing duties. Canada has already given West Indian
sugar n preferential rate. But this
is not sufficient. "I have proposed,"
raid Mr. Chamberhin, "that conjointly with Canada wc subsidize a
line of steamships between the West
Indies and Halifax and other Canadian porta."

True, No Doubt.
Al Bartleit's veracity has evident-
ly suffered nothing; from a sojourn in
northern climes, although he seems
still to retain that passion for romance for which he was so justly
famous in Sandon. The following: is
from the Seattle P-I:
Twenty-eight;, days from New
York to Dawson and return represents the actual travelling time of
Al Harriett' who arrived here Monday night on the treasure steamer
VBosatte with ?JO,O00in dust.
Tonight he leaves again fur the
Klondike Capital, having transacted
the business that brought him out in
less thau 21 boars. He goes in this
time for the ��400.00J clean-up that
will be made on tlie eleven csaims in
which he is inrerested. He expects
tocat dinner in the Kith Avenue
hotel. New York, on September 10
at the latest.
Mr. Bartlett was asked by a Post-
Intelligencer reporter to tell the
story of his remarkably last trip. He
said :
"It was simply a case if lucky
connections. 1 came across the continent as though on a special train.
Arriving in Seattle in the morning 1
had my outfit ready by 'J o'clock
and a few minutes iater the Kosalie
was knocking hok*s in the waves to
get me to Skagway. To cross the
pass on a pack horse with my light
outfit was very short work* and l
found the steamer Ora just ready to
start down on her first trip. We
went through White Horse and Kink
rapids without a hitch, only to bring
up on an insignificant sand bar after
all the  dangerous water had been
eassed. I paid $ 100 for a small row
oat and floated the rest of the way
to Dawson, a distance of about 10J
miles. I was just away from New
York fourteen days, fourteen hours,
ten minutes and 17| seconds.
"Two weeks I remained In Dawson City, closing up deals and visiting the 19 mining claims in which I
am interested with my two brothers.
On July 24th I started out on the
steamer Ora. On the trip up the
river we had to eut wood to keep
moving. Passengers turned t��ut in s
body to help the crew. I came back
on board all covered with pitch and
dirt, and started to wash my hands.
Several Jiamond rings which I had
on ray fingers slipped off into tbe
Fan. When I got through washing
had forgotten all about the rings
and threw them overboard with the
water. It dazed mc for a minute,
for they were worth ��2,000 at least.
Some salmon has them by this time.
I made close connections at Skagway
and got out in just 14 days.
"Eleven of the 19 claims in which
I am interested were worked during
the winter. They are on Bonanza,
Eldorado, Hunker and Sulphur. I
estimate the clean-up when complete
will aggregate $400,000."
Considering that Al has never been
past Lake Bennett the above is not
so bad.
