Horn Alex McDonald ia Floating hia
Companu In Glasgow.
Alex McDonald, who la now so
well known in the old country aa the
bonanza king of the Klondike, and
who gained such unenviable notoriety and ao much gold by '-standing
Ur with the mounted police in Daw
son, Is now before the public of Great
Britain with hia Klondike "concession" in the shape of a stoek company.
Alex McDonald was never accused
of being dull, and his system in this
flotation is an additional tribute to his
genius. An advertisment in the
Glasgow Herald gives a few particulars. The company is stocked
for ��350,000 in ��1 shares, 55,000 of
which are priority shares and the
balance ordinary stock. Of the 350,-
000 shares, 25,000 priority shares
and 50,000 ordinary shares are for
working capital. The remaining
275,000 shares belong to the promoters. The priority stock, 55,000
shares, (which includes the 25,000
priority shares set aside for working
capital) is now offered for sale. Tbe
. terms upon which thia stock is offered
are unique. The prospectus says.
"The priority shares are preferential
as to capital and dividends until 100
per cent has been paid on them,"
after which all stocks rank alike.
Thia is tbe old Comstock game over
again. The owners of priority shares
must receive the money back, that
they pay in. The general public
can then have the promoters' stock
at whatever speculative value the
people of Glaagow care to attach to
the stock of a company which hat
already paid 100 per cent on its pre-
terenee shares.
Tlie prospectus farther recites that
the company has 2} miles of Hunker
creek on which tbey have a sure
thing of A 600,000; but the British
public can have tt for ��350,000. The
gold brick man will probably be in
Glaagow next summer.
The Klondike Output.
The largest estimate of, the Klondike gold yield thia season ranges
from twelve to twenty millions. The
Klondike Nugget aaya:
"The output haa been more than
doubled ao that it la now probable
that the royalty will this year be
paid on more than eight millions.
Exemptions and evasions will give
about double that amount as the pro
duction of the territory for the year
ending in the rammer of 1899. The
primitive methods used in working
the claims make it very unlikely that
the wash-up will give more' than
from twelve to fifteen millions on the
As compiled by the Midnight Sun
this season's yield will be nearly
twenty millions, distributed among
the various creeks, including the
branches, as follows:--"Eldorado,
���5,500,000; Bonansa, 15,000,000;
Hunker, 13,000,000; Dominion, ��3,
900,000; Gold Run, 1300,000; Sulphur, 1500,000; Quarts, 1250,000;
Eureka, 1250,000. All other creeks

Atlin to Ooer rated.
A letter received this week trom
Fred C. Adlcr, who Is now in the
Atlin Lake district, gives some inter-
eating information about that conn-
very hard trip into the country,
having to travel 34 miles over the
ice with a foot of water on it. The
Fantalt route, which la about 70 miles
long, Is generally considered the
beat but waa a very hard trail aa he
found it.
It it estimated that there are now
five or six thousand people in the
Atlin district, with little or no work
for anyone. Prices jrcnerally arc
very high, meals costing 11 each.
Flour is sold at #17 a hundred and
hay at 1250 a ton, while rough lumber eannot be had for ices than $125
a thousand feet. There are no lest
than 33 saloons running in the town,
retailing a bad quality of whiskey at
25 cents a glass. Auction sales held
by men who are anxious to get ont
are of daily occurence. ���
Mr. Adler's advice to hit friends In
Kootenay is to stay a long way away
from Atlin. The summer, he aaya,
may bring many changes tor the
better but he has yet teen nothing to
warrant the rush that has already
taken place.

And the Supptti caa not Keep pace
with the Increasing Demand.
Leonard Lewisohn, of Lewisobn
Bros., the leading metal dealers ef
the world, aayt: "We and an/body
else aie powerless to stop the advance
in copper. We have told more copper the last week than In the six
weeks preceeding; and while we may
regret a cot .per market at 20 cents or
ibovc, we must face the situation aa
It it. The electrical companies In
America are using 40 per cent more
copper than a year ago, and the
foreign demand continues. I do not
know where tbe supplies arc to come
from. The only mine that can Increase supplies to any extent thia
year It the Utah, which will toon
begin production on a considerable
scale, but trom no other district can
the supplies this year be materially
Increased over those of last year."

it had met with in ���scoring for that day
all the hi ir sporting events thst ar* to be
held in Kootenay.
Communications and agrssments were
read (rom tbe Nelson and Rossland hose

Other rich properties are the Ivanhoe,
which since 1896 has crushed 57,800
tons, averaging $88 a ton. and the As-
socistion. whose shares, with a par
value of ��l, sre now standing at ��6.
The mines of the district turn out 100X100
ounces a month.
What might be termed (he gold colony
comprises sbout 975,000 square miles.
All are owned by English capitalists,
with their headquarters in London, and
all are turning out immense quantities
of gold. The great trouble in some of
the districts is tbe lack of water, and a
project is on foot to pump water from
the coast to the gold fields, a distance of
over 800 miles, through pipes two and
a half feet through. This will probably
be finished in about two years and will
cost ��8,000,000.
But with all the enormous gold output Australia is no place for tne poor
roan, and the benefits derived from the
output is simply the working-men's
wsges, the dividends going to the British capitalists and syndicates in London
who control most of the mines in the
Coming to Canada.

British Board of Trade emigration
returns for the first three months of the
current year are very flattering to the
Dominion. The number of people leaving the United Kingdoms ports for
Canada show an increase of 24 per cent,
over the corresponding period of 1898.
while emigration returns to the United
States for the same periou show a decrease of 15 per cent.; sad that of other
British colonies, including South Africa,
has practically remained stationary or
shows a slight falling off.
Australian Mining.
Tlie Calgoorlie mines sre the property
of a very smsll syndicste at Adelslde,
capitalised at ��150, and today all the
properties In thst district sre en the
market st ��900,000. snd since 1H98 have
paid ��3,000,000 in dividends. The first
property to be floated was the Grant
Boulder, which was discovered by Mr.
Ilannan in June, 1898, snd floated In
April, 1895. Since then it has turned
out over eight tons of gold snd WAN)
tons o�� quarts bss been crushed. The
average value Is about $52 wr ton
The reason thst crushing has been so
slow is thst these oroperlies aro about
BOO miles from the coast and there If no
waterway over which transports mtgnt
go. Another property ia the Lakeview
which has a lode 36 feet wide and averages very rich,
Metmly a fJ-rter Suafce.
It was a bitter cold night and the fur
nsce fire burned slow, but there wss a
warm time for a few seconds at least in
the home of an op-town politician. He
had been attending one of those breesy
kind of meetings, and retired somewhat
late in a shivery snd somewhat confused
sort of feeling, says Uie Cleveland* Plain-
Of one thing be was certain, his feet
were cold, very cold. In a tentative
sort of a way he thrust them towards
tbs warmer side of the bed, where his
wife was calmly sleeping. An instant
later there wss a terrified yell���then
another, then another.
������Julia, wake up!" gasped the politician; ''there's something in tbe bed!
Strike a light, quick!"
His wife was on her feet at once, striking bsndfuls of matches, while the hero
ot a dozen political battles writhed and
gasped in sn agony ol terror.
"It's a worm���a scorpion���a coldblooded viper!" he said. ''Hurry, I'm
holding it! Gee! But it squirms! There
it goes!" snd ss the gss flared up and
the clothes were turned back, hs deftly
tossed out s slim, shinv, tremulous object which wriggled downward to the
floor, where it slowly shaped itself into
a glistening coil.

The majority of men believe in advertising, and advertise.
A part of the minority of men believe
in advertising and do not advertise.
The balance of the minority either do
rot believe in advertising at all. or else
believe in it sufficiently to advertise
only intermittentls.
This serai-intelligent business man
finds that a decent sised advertisement
in a decent publication costs say from
ten to fifty dollars s time.
He attacks the mathematical problem
to discover that it is necessary to sell
four refrigerators, two overcoats, twenty-five rolls of wall paper, forty-two
pairs of stockings, or half a dosen rocking chairs to realise sufficient profit to
meet tbe advertising cost of a single insertion.
Hs is one of thoss men who invest
their money with s string to it, when
the money rolls round the corner in
search of fertile ground to grow in he
jerks it back to himself. They are a
sort of "sufficient unto the day** sort of
people, who do not believe in casting
their bread upon the waters.

SANDON. B.C., MAY 13, 1899.
The annual report of the Minister of
Mines has just been issued. In point
of appearances it is much handsomer
than the report of Mr. Carlyle, hut
viewed from the point of completeness
and detail, it is hardly to be compared
with that of two years ago.
The official returns of our province s
mineral output for last year are, aa regards the metal yield in general, some*
what disappointing, when merely cursorily notedat a'���first fiance," for the
aggregate yield of gold, silver, lead and
copper shows a decline of nearly $865,-
000 from the like results of the operations of 1897. Thus while the metal
yield of British Columbia amounted ia
value to $7,567,551 in 1897, the corresponding worth of last vear stood at
Speaking of this decline the News-
Advertiser very tritely says: "If the
figures are scratinised in detail there is
less ground for temporary disappointment and much in favor of the large
hopes which we sil entertain of the
SCi��t mining- future of British Columbia.
������Thos more than the whole of the net
decline in the value of the province's
metal output ie due to temporary slackening of operations In the silver-lead
districts of West Kootenay, more particularly in Ainsworth���-where the ore
though abundant is low grade���and the
Slocan. Thus the output of Ainsworth
fell from a value of f Uo\M5 to tlfiMOl.
and that of the Slocan from 18,290,686 to
12,619,852. The Nelson district also
showed a temporary decline in output
value of about 194,000, and East Kootenay a decline of rather over |30,000
However, already there are hopeful
signs of a change for the better as regards the sil ver-lead yield of our province, despite the fell and the fluctua
tions in the price of silver which in part
caused the decline of last year, though
that decline was then also aggravated
no doubt by tbe Yukon boom, which
may be regarded now as either past or
"On the other hand, the largely increased gold and copper production of
British Columbia Airing the past year
gave good cause for congratulation, as
auguring a brilliant early future for oar
province in regard to the mining of the
two most important metals, each of
which is, unlike silver, steadily growing in demand value.
"Thus the did gold fields of Cariboo
increased last year tbeir output from
1825,000 in value to 1389,960,and admittedly in Cariboo the new era of scientific gold getting is only just beginning,
and the present output is consequently
smsll indeed in comparison to what we
may reasonably ex pert from the district
in s very short time.
' Caaaisr again showed largely aa a
result of tbe Atlin discoveries made
late in the season, a eonsiderable increase of yield, the output rising from
$37,060 to $107,800, the latter figures
doubtless representing only a small portion of what we may reasonably expect
tbe Atlin yield alone to prove tont before the expiration of the present Vear.
"The famous copper-gold district of
Trail creek also showed, under the circumstances, a satisfactory gain in out
put. the value of which rose from $2.-
097,280 to $2,470,811; whilst in Osoyoos,
wherein is situated amongst other pro-
S!rtre��U_3famous0-rihoomiiw of Camp
cKinney, the metal yield���principally
golden���rose from $142,982 to $B48,112
output certain to advance immensely
in the early future, aud as certain to
show a very considerable further gam
of value even in the course of the present year. , ,
"then, too, there is every certainty
of a very big advance indeed this year
of the copper, gold aud silver output of
claims which are gradually becoming
mines on the coast and adjacent islands,
Including Vancouver Island    The out-
ftut of these mines wss slender indeed
n 1898, amouuting iu value only to
$19,487, though even this showed double
the worth of the previous year. But in
1899 we may expect relatively large
results from the various mines, for a
single one of the coast mines slone���the
Dorothv Morton-has already yielded
since tbe beginning of the year a silver-
gold value (hat surpasses the results of
the whole of the grouped districts for
'"Hence we msv confidently snttei*
pate that the general results of our Provinces metal mining in 1899 will tar exceed those of 1898. for whilst we may
reasonably expect that the output of
Uie silver-lead districts will sgatn rise
in value to something like the returns
of 1987 despite silver.depredation, we
may on the other hand count with
practical certainty on a very targe aggregate increase of the gold, silver and
copper yields of Trail creek. t fcoyoos,
Yale, and the Coast snd the Island districts of the province, whilst there are
Certain to ensue verv large gains of
gold output with still larger possibilities
in Atlin.
"We msy reckon, too, with full assurance on a verv considerable increase of
the gold yields of the hydraulic mines
of Cariboo. We therefore anticipate
that, though the advance of <vor metal
mining in general during the present
year will not be phenomenal, nor cause
the long-deferred 'boom' of British Col-
umbls in the great London market, It
will nevertheless prove sufficiently substantial to justify the continued holding
of good and even brilliant hopes in regard to the future of mining for precious
metals, and their associate products of
copper snd lead, throughout British
"We must not forget in conclusion to
chronicle the fact that the coal and coke
production of British Columbia last year
���together valued at $$4182,505���was by
fsr the largest on provincial record .and
thus msde the aggregate mineral viekt
of British Columbia���metallic and'non-
metallic���the best in tbs historv of the
" * Black diamonds in fact more thsn
made up ror the temporary decline in
our silver-lead yield and raised the general mineral output of British Columbia
from $10. jr��/2r)8 in 1897 to the aggregate
of $10,908,811, which was shown as the
result of last years work.
"Thus our mineral output of the U*4
year was, taken as a whole, by far the
greatest and moat valuable on provincial record, and as the metal output is
certain to show a big gain this year and
that of coal and coke���thanks largely to
Pernio���will reveal at least as greet s
proportionate advance, we may assuredly expect that the present will prove
another record year for mining all
round in Canada's coming and greatest

"Worry kills," says a great specialist
on brain troubles, "as surely as ever s
gun or dagger did." Thia, It is claimed,
has been established beyond doubt by
the investigations of neueologists. We
all know that worry embitters life to
such an extent aa to render the final
blow more often merciful, but few men
and women know how much it lies
within themselves to keep down and
vanquish this foe to life and lasting

vigilance and strong ^" l��Wwhen
one hss learned how to fight this hidden
but deadly enemy. .
"But some must worry," said the
careful Martha, when I said something
like this to her the other day. "If you
don't woi rv some one else will worry
ror vou ft is the same as the people
who toil not nor spin. Some one Baa to
toil or spiu or is toiling and spinning for

"No," I argued, "it is not the same

who hsve it sil done for them, but there

Bv worry I do not mean���no one

such thoughts degenerate into worry,

It la said their chief business is to form-
ulste their clsim against the Government for expenditure incurred in connection with the unfortunate Yukon
railway deal of last year. It is said by
those that know that the amount of the
damages to be claimed by them will not
be far short, of 8250,000. The amount of
the recent decisions against them in the
courts of 870,000, due the Alberta Bail-
way and Coal Company lor rails supplied, will be one of the items of the bill
of particulars which the government
will be asked to pay.

At Somerville, Texas, a plsce on the
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Ps railway,
about 140 miles west of Galveston, an
interesting, mysterious, gigantic, and
evidently profitable enterprise has just
besn inaugurated. Drawing our conclusions from the big factory, the colossal vats, endless piles of timber, long
trains of tram cars, the army of laborers
and the terrible odor that pervades tbe
town and county for miles, there certainly must be enough creosote manufactured here to cure all the aching
teeth in the world. These people, however, sre not engaged in producing this
peculiar liquid to be put in little vials
and to be sold over the prescription
counter by the drop. It pours from tbe
factory in great dark streams, and they
own rivers and lakes of the stuff, aad
use it sil right here,
The officials on the ground are apparently men of very limited colloquial
powers, snd few of them recognise the
presence of strangers further thsn bv
a glance and a nod of tbe head or a jerk
of the thumb towards a sign which savs
"No Admittance." The air of mystery
that pervades the piece led us to'mak e
some investigations, which developed
the fact that Uie stuff which is produced
and used here is manufactured by s
secret process, only known to the
���hetnists in tbe employ of tbe companv
Everybody calls it creosote, but nobodv
on the outside knows what it is. The
company has been in existence a little
more than a year, and, judging from
the big buildings they are continually
constructing the constant arrival of
men and cnatiy machinery,the ceaseless
augmentation of their force of laborers
and skilled m*-chanics and the error

known as the Alligator branch, started
at this point and ran through tbe Brazos

The C. P. R. Balked.
The C. P. R. i8 trying again with
very indifferent success its bulldozing
policy as applied to the K. A S. Ry.,
now the Kootenay Railway A Navigation Co., owners of the Kaslo A
Lardo Duncan Ry. Co. charter. The
little road has a faculty of always
being flrst in the field. Under their
charter they last fall surveyed and
recorded their right-of way through
Duncan Pasa, but a few days ago
when their workmen began grading
operations here thev found the new
stakes of the C. P. R. on their right-
of-way and a gang of C. P. R. graders shortly made its sppearance.
The latter would not quit the disputed ground and the little road has
called upon the courts to protect its
rights against the porcene proclivities of the C. P. R., in tlte meantime
going right ahead with its operations. Judge Forin has issued a
temporary injunction against the

in. the gullible public through the
Philadelphia papers would turn old

envy. The Black Diamond. Little
Phil and Mamie, a group of 1p��w
grade propositions that have turned
grey the heads of two or three managers and broken the hearts and
financial backs of former owners, is
hung before the dazed public as the
greatest and richest mines the world
has ever heard of. Their mill,
equipped with a "coffee mill" crusher, two jigs and one Free vanner,
they claim to be the largest plant in
the Pacific Northwest. Among the
more truthful statements in an inter-
written of young Maxwell Stevenson
is one to the effect that the "great
Black Diamond mines" are in direct
line with the Payne, only 14 miles
distant, and that the Payne is 'just
be.p��w the lie Roi mine." Ii is need
less to say the preci"Os Stevenson
pair is engaged in selling stock in
their "great mines."
Mine Owners' Meeting.
A meeting of the mine owners of
Slocan was held in the Virgin hi Hall
on Tuesday evening. Several representatives from Nelson and Kaslo
were present and all the mines, with
one or��two exceptions, were represented
The meeting was held with great
secrecy, the doors being double-
guarded to prevent gny outsiders
from gaining admittance, consequently the proceedings are unknown. It is also uncertain as to
whether the meeting was unanimous
in favor of the (3 scale for au eight-
hour shift. It is currently reported
that three of the largest' properties
refuse to close down. B. J. Perry, of
the Noble Five, left for Victoria on
Wednesday morning and it is understood that bis mission is in connection
with the movements of the mine
owners association. Resolutions
drawn up which will probably receive publication next week. The
constitutionality of the eight-hour
law will be contested immediately
upon its enforcement.
