The largest crowd that has ever
been in Three Forks since the railroad was extended up the gnlch to
Sandon, gathered there Tuesday to
see Silverton, Three Forks and Sandon kickers worry a bag of wind
around a four acre lot, and incidentally to celebrate United States'
national sarcasm, Independence Day.
The weather was the regular
Fourth of July article���pouring
rain��� and when the band, foot ball
players and many women and children loaded the train down at Sandon,
patriotic Americans could hardly
realize that they were not again in
the land of freedom, permits and
martial law. At Three Forks tbe
crowd alighed in a torrent of rain,
and the oldest inhabitant was de
tailed to take the census before the
visitors escaped.
The game between Sandon and
Three Foks was brought off first.
It was wild and woolley from the
start and the referee did not check
the ardor of the players with esthetic
distinctions about fouls or offside.
The gronnd,  which has recently
been cleared by a liberal application
of "(30 per cent", reminded some of
the boysof the "clearin' back home;"
and there were spots in it so soft that
suowshocs  would   be  required  for
rapid travelling.   The Three Forks
boys played a hard game���that is.
the hardest they knew how��� but it
was  against  them,    and  Sandon's
seconds got  the glory  along with
their soaking by 2 to 1.
Silverton and Sandon No. 1 then
went into it. This match was for
keeps. Sandon boys believed that
they should beat Si verton, and they
went at it to win. For the first few
minutes they rushed the soggy
leather sphere around the lot like a
steer through a cornfield, but when
Silverton got down to work it was
nip and tuck both ways. After two
half hours of the most vigorous work
that men could do, the game was
decided a draw, 1 to 1, and both too
tired to continue it.
Throughout the game Sandon was

West Elgin ! These three triumphs
of the party system are not the
materials which can be moulded
into the noblest sort of Dominion Day
Canada has rich fisheries, vast
mineral wealth, wide tracts of fertile
field and untilled prairie. Canada is
blessed above all lands with the
beauty of mountain and plain.
Canada owes her blessings to the
wisdom and kindness of the Lord,
and her curses to the weakness and
folly of her own people. If the Lord
had not b^.en better to Canada than
Canada has been to herself, this
year's harvest would be principally
tares and thistles, like the political
crop which is grown from the seed ot
a blind and bitter partyism.
Gold and Pocertq in Klondike and
Vancouver has an assay office, and
some of the party had consequently
made their arrangements to  take
their dust through with them.   The
Dawson people   came out by  the
steamer Bonanza King.    They left
the metropolis on June 17th.   Many
of the river steamer were seen to be
in trouble  on the  way up, but  no
more serious wrecks have occurred.
The people from Atlin roport little
change for the  heeler in  the condi
tions there.   Judge Irving has tried
several  cases   and has seemed to
settle them in a way not alone just,
but according to the popu'ar sentiment and the general usage in mining camps.   Many of the suits have
been  dropped on   account   of the
necessity of the payment of $25 as
fees before the cases will be taken up
by the courts; nearly everyone coming out of the country  is as near
broke as possible.    A good deal ot
danger is being experienced in making the trips from the lakes down to
Ben net.     On  the   steamer  which
brought many of the Tees passengers
up the lake came the news that eight
lives were lost about 20 miles from
Bennett.   In a storm a boat eapslzed
and the water was too rough for any
rescue  to  be   made,  although   the
drowning people were in view of the
steamer.   None  of the eight   were
saved, and no one who came down
knows either where they belonged or
who they were.   Other* accidents of
the same kind were occurring every
day or so.    There were people in
Atlin,   too,    who   have   aosolutely
nothing to live  on, and are  going
from day to day living on the people
who are next to them and are better
off.   One man, a carpenter, left his
wife aud child at Atlin  and came
out to Bennett to get work as Jhere
was none in Atlin.    He said  he had
to leave his family  without enough
food for the  next  meal,   and  they
could only get through the best way
they could.
With about 125 passengers, half
from Atlin and the others from Daw-
son, the steamer Tees arrived at
Vancouver from Skagway on Monday. Nearly all the people out from
Dawson brought money, and according to Captain Gosse's estimate there
was nearly a million dollars worth
ot gold from the northern mining
regions. Eight packages of gold
dust, varying in weight from 100 to
140 pounds apiece, were carried off
the steamer as she lay at Evans,
Coleman & Evans' wharf, and most
ot them were taken to the Hotel
Vancouver, where their owners
stayed for the night.
Among the largest owners ot dust
in the prrty was Wallace Hey wood,
formerly sergeant ot the police force
in Vancouver, who has been in business and mining in the north for the
last two years. He had two sacks of
gold, each weighing in the vicinity
of 140 pounds. Quite a crowd gathered around the steamer when the gold
was being taken off, and it required
two strong men to carry off the packages that were landed.
Among other well-known Yukon
people in the party were Donald
McDonald, the brother of the Bonanza King ; A. F. George, of the Daw
son Nugget Express and T. Suttea,
F. Benchore, L. dePoinere, of Montreal j E. W. Kenyon, O. J. Tedlock,
and W. W. Mackay. All had more
or less gold dust, aud a good deal of
it was taken to Seattle. It is not
well known in the north  yet that
Buying Canadian Iron Lands.
The Michipicoton mining division
of Ontario, which has become so well
known as a gold field, is likely to
become even more noted on account
ot the deposits of other metals. A
deal has just gone through between
the Ely Company of Hurley, Wisconsin and several prospectors nnd
claim owners of Michipicoton, of
whom W.J. Gates was the heaviest
owner and Thomas Brooks, Thomas
Smart and others pooled their interests with his. The figures paid by
the Ely Company aggregate 160.000,
of which Gates get $35,000 and the
others smaller amounts.
The iron lands that hive changed
hands are situated from one to two
miles north of Wawa lake, in the
second range. These will have to be
connected with deep water by a tram
or railway. It is understood that a
large force of men will be put at
work to develop the property with as
little delay as jiossible.
This transaction has given an impetus to prospecting, and white men
and Indians are all scurrying through
the woods, eagerly searching for the
red stains of hematite ore.
In looking around for a new cabinet minister we trust the British
Columbia government will not overlook the claims of the ossified man
for the position.

Speaking of the quality of the ore
of the Slocan mines, J D Kendall, in a
recent paper aays: Moist silver lead
ore* are ho associated with ganguc, or
with the ores of sine, cop|>er, and iron,
that it is not economically possible to
���hip them in a state of purity, but in a
dintrict like the Slocan, which it far-
removed from smelters, and where,
comteqaently, high freight rates have
to he paid, It Is imperative to aim at a
high tenor. In the early days���I. e , in
iH^i -when the ore had to be "packed"
out to the lakes, only the best ore in a
mine could stand the cost of shipping,
so that then the ore had to be sorted
most carefully This will \m- illustrated
by * lew figures relating t<< tbe output
of the Dardenellea mine, one of the first
xhippers. Three hundred and fourteen

This table ��hows better than many
word* the highly argentiferous charac
ter of the Slocan ores. It includes prob
ably the highest and tbe lowest grade
yet (mind.    When we compare theee re
suits with those obtained from the ore*
of other important silver lead area*, the
greater richness of the Slocan ores is at
once evident.
When toasted, the ores are mainly
Mat to one or other of the Cnited States
smelters.   A little ore has been sent to
the Hall smelter at Nelson.     Recently
the Canadian Pacific Hallway Company
��� reeled a smelter at Trail for the pur
po*e of dealing with the Slocan ores,
but it has not got  fairly to work yet
The heavy freight to 0, S. smelters-
ranging from $11 to 119 o��r ton-has
hitherto been a serious item   of cost
Local smelting will greatly reduce this
charge, but it will not obviate the payment of duty unless a market can be
found for lead outside the I'nited States
If such market were found,  the base
bullion could be sent to the States (In
bond) for refining until such time as a
refinery be built in British Columbia
The present duty on lead In Slocan ores
entering the United States is 1.5 cents
per pound, and on the lead  in base
bullion 2.5 cents per pound.   The average lead contents of the ore shipped
from the Slocan has been about 60 per
cent. The duty on ore of this grade,
at present rate, is 115 per ton. On a ton
of base bullion it is $50 per ton. It take*
over two tons of average Slocan ore to
make a ton of lead. The duty on that
ore is about 181.80, against ��50 if the
same weight of lead be shipped as base
bullion Take the freight on ore at
$17 25 per ton (of ore) and tho cost per
ton of lead must be $86.57. Let us see
now how matters appear from the standpoint o�� C. P. R Co , even with the U.
S. A as a market.

The difference is slightly in favor of
smelting at Trail, even if the base bullion be sold in the I nited States. If it
were sold elsewhere and simply refined
in the States (in bond) the benefit to B.
C would be very great indeed. But
this is only so long as Um operation is
in the hands of the C. P R. Co. The
$18 per ton charged for freijjht in the
second of the above statements is a
figure which can, of course, be regulated fee suit themselves. If they were
hauling base bullion, for others, doubt-
leas they would demand _ much higher
rate than for haulm? ore. hut for them-
*elve.s they need not do so. They will
in smelling hi Trail, lose the long haul
of the ore. but as much of the total ore
product now goes over other railway
systems they would probably not be
any losers ultimately, for they would
get the carriage of the whole of the
bullion, which would probably much
exceed in quantity the ore now hauled
by them Apart from that, they would
create a great industry which must
benefit their system greatly in many
other ways No o��.e else (unless given
special railway rates) can deal so satisfactorily with tnis problem at present
as the C P 11. Co.. and it is to be honed
their endeavors to develop the resources
of the country In this way will meet
with complete success.
Thanks to the efforts of the politicians
and labor agitato** there is a growing
belief among the working classes thst
their own incomes would be materially
increased if a larger portion of their employer's income were taken from him
and forcibly divided among themselves.
It is this belief which has led to the recent epidemic of strikes. The moment
that tne working men saw that things
were improving and there was a prospect
of the employers getting more money
they insisted upon having at once their
"fair share" of his increased earnings.
In other words, they started in to die-
count his prospective prosperity   before
it reached him, f
Now the question is���what is labor s
fair share of the increase in the produc
tion of wealth?   How are we to determine it?   Everyone knows  that labor
has profited largely by the  increase of
wealth which has resulted from the present organization of industry,   The increase of wages has been going on for 50
years throughout the commercial world.
The increased comfort of the wageearner
has increased in a still greater ratio, for
his dollar, or shilling, or hia mark,  will
buy very much more of almost everything, except shelter, now than it did 50
years ago.   It is far untrue (in  America
at least) that labor is finding it difficult
to get employment, that the number oi
persons engaged in mining and mechanical industries on the continent  has increased 65 per cent during the  past decade, while the whole population   only
increased 25 per cent.   And  yet  wages
have grown more rapidly than tbe number   of employees,  and much   fewer
children are employed now  than  then.
But there are many reasons outside of
mere socialistic theorisation  why    this
distorted view of the labor question  haa
become so prominent. Immense as have
been the strides of material progress  in
this century,  and  wonderful aa   have
encourages the spread of the feeliug
that���in some vague and unexplained
way���labor is being "robbed." As a
matter of fact laboi receives to-day a
larger proportion of the earnings of capital than ever before in the history of the
world. And the workingman stands
upon a basis of liberty and equality with
his employer that would have been considered an Utopian dream in the days of
his grandfather.���Trade Review.
"If I had a mine in the Slocan, I
would pay $8.50 a day, and by doing so
I would get the pick of the best miners
on the Pacific slope," is the way a mining man of long and varied experience,
now a resident of Nelson, put it. Ha
had recently been through the Slocan
country, and by observation and inquiries found that the best miners had
left the country. He maintains that it
is always economy to employ skilled
workers in a mine, and that a skilled
worker is cheaper at $8.50 a day than
an unskilled one at $8. The payment
of $8.50 for an eight-hour day would
bring to British Columbia the best
been the additions to human knowledge \m\mrt fa America. The payment of
and to human power over nature,  it is jg ^j not oniy drive the good men
doubtful if any other change of the century is more marked than the increase
of sympathy between man and man.
Poverty and suffering are aa old aa the
race. But acute and widespread sympathy with them is recent, and hat been
so far expanded that conditions are now
regarded as pitiful which a century ago
would not have been supposed io involve
even hardship. Poverty has been relatively if not absolutely decreased, and yet
there is so much more sympathy with
poverty, and with conditions that are
far removed from poverty, but seem like
poverty in contrast with great wealth,
that one might easily get the impression
that poverty was increasing. Thus tho'
it is utterly without excuse, tbe statement that the poor are growing poorer
is really believed by persons who have
tbe means of knowing better.
For this reason many men talking on
the relations of labor and capital take
counsel from their own kindly emotions
and are not sufficiently xealous in enquiring into the facts of the case. Their
openly expressed  sympathy  naturally
away, but keep other good men from
coming here, says the Nelson Tribune.
These facts are indisputable.   The
fact that all other isolated camps like
the Slocan are paying $8.50 the good
men go elsewhere and obtain employment readily at that figure.    Further,
the scale of wages in all the old camps is
$8, and this sum there will go farther
than $4 here, therefore the men will not
work for that here when they can go
elsewhere and do so much better.   If
the $8 scale is ever adopted in the Slocan it will mean the importation of unskilled men.
The lowest form of life yet found is
tha man who will take a paper for
years without paying for it, and'then
have the postmaster send it back,

SANDON. B.C., JULY 8, 1899.
Talking of scabs an English lawyer defines a scab as follows: "A
scab is to his trade what a traitor is
to his country, and though both may
be useful in troublesome times they
are detested when peace returns by
all; so when help is needed a scab is
the last to contribute assistance, and
the first to grasp a benefit he never
labored to procure. He cares only
for himself; he sees not beyond tbe
extent of a day, and for a monetary
approbation he would betray his
friends, family and country; in short
he is a traitor on a small scale, who
first sells the journeyman and is himself afterwards sold in his turn by his
employer, nntil at last he is despised
and detested by all. He is an enemy
to himself, to the present age and to
prosperity." Scabs are also to be
found in business circles.   There are
some trying to ran newspapers. As
a ruL they have no brains, and die
of excessive conceit,   or starvation.
Appendicitis is an old complaint
under a new name. A doctor in New
York has a new cure tor it. The
first patient operated an was a woman
20 years ot age. It is muscular manipulation. The treatment of Dr. Hel-
mer was said to be instantaneous in
its effects, and so simple and harmless in its application that some physicians are inclined to wonder why it
was not discovered and made use of
before. To one looking on the operation seems only to apply one band to
the point midway between the top of
the right leg and a point above the
stomach; then bend up tbe right leg
of the patient at the knee joint and
give the leg a slight twist by means
of a quick motion, repeated two or
three times, and the operation Is at an
end, the appendix having been relieved of its obstruction by muscular
Nelson may yet rival Sandon, or
Monte Carlo. During the recent celebration permits were given to gamblers to ran games of chance in order,
no doubt, that the rural sucker would
go broke before he killed himself
drinking red lemonade. The sneak
thieves and road agents did not get
any permits to do business. This
most have been an oversight upon
the part ot tbe authorities. Tbete
fellows may not have many vote*,
bat they are winners when it comes
to cleaning out a crowd. The gams
are simply not in it If a permit had
been granted the footpadists visitors
would have had more time to view
the 8ightsof a great city,   especially
the beautiful pictures and livirg
statuary found in endless profusion
along the piano end ef Baker street
Nothing advertises a town or dis
trict better than a handsome paper.
People at a district judge a country
by ite press, and invest their money
accordingly. II they pick up a little
abortion of journalism, printed like
a nightmare, and spattered all over
with local jealousy, they throw it
down in disgust, without flinding out
the name ot the damphool who thinks
he is an editor. Jackleg papers ire
a nuisance anywhere, and should
only be used under carpets in a moderate way. Used to excess the gas in
them is liable to explode and poison
tbe family.
This is an age ot wonderful discoveries. We read a short time ago
that scientists had at last got on option
upon appendicitis, consumption, ty
phoid and kindred diseases. Only
yesterday we read that liquid air
will core leprosy and all endemic
complaints. If this keeps up disease
will soon become nothing but memory
and life will be one long sipot honey
ed sweetness, unalloyed by the microbes that have cursed the earth
since Adam went astray and lost his
trait farm.
Several thousand dollars have
been expended in cleaning out Due-
can river ao that ��t would be navi
gable. Railway contractors are this
summer busy dumping trees Into the
stream, impeding navigation, and
causing damage to small st atners.
The proper authorities should step in
and stop this; also the importation of
alien labor to work on the railways
in Lardo.	
From reports, Atlin seems to be a
dead failure. Many of the prod Ural*
np there are anxious to get back to the
Slocan. Come on, prods, we are a
little shy on cream ai d honey, but
have plentv of bear meat and potato
es. Never mind your clothes, get
back in time tor the boom. It will
be here just as soon aa we have the
eight hour law properly digested.
When the Bunker Hill mill was
blown np in Idaho the management
stated that the loss was $250,000. Before the explosion the value given to
the man who collects taxes was only
$65,000. This property rose quickly
bat the price has evidently ascended
still quicker.
A Man in one of the eastern provinces was given ten days for killing
a man. This is the lowest rate we
hare ever heard of In tbe murder industry, and should came quite a
boom at that price.
I A Man by the name of Millions has
| started a paper near Ottawa. This
is the first time we have heard of
Millions in the newspaper basilicas,
and we hope Millions will always be
in it

Other properties during the past week.
The shipment of ore from tbe Enter-
PriSB some weeks ago amounted to two
tons, not 4<K) as was stated at the time.
Twenty tons of sine ore was shipped
Uili week Irom the Hoaun.   Another car
load of galena ore  will  go out before
Work will lie resumed on tbe Chieftan
next week. The property is on Cariboo
creek and is principally owned by Pat
Burns and Wm. Mackenzie.
A contract was let on tbe 1st of July
for more work to be pushed on the Bosun. Four men are taking out ore. Six
men are working underground.
Thirty men are employed about the
Noonday. Three feet of clean ore is in
tbe face of the workings, and huge pieces
ol native silver are taken out daily.
Eighteen inches of clean galena have
been struck in the No. 4 tunnel of the
Madison. With depth on this property
the ore is changing from dry to galena.
The Slocan Prospecting Syndicate,
with a capital of t'iN.OOO has been formed
in London to adopt an agreement with

Joe Payne has leased his hotel to T. J.
Ba|| for six months. Mr. Payne left
Saturday morning for Kamloops, where
he will look nfter Pat Horns' large cattle
intesests for the next four months.
The first ore to be packed down to this
point this season was last Wednesday.
When McMillan |*ck train started to
bring down a car load from the Tani-
arac on Springer creek. Owing to the
repairs to the wagon road not being completed this ore has to be peeked all the
way to town, causing an extra tax oi
several dollars per ton. A car load of
ore is also ready to be packed down from
the Black Prince, and bids are now asked
for the contract.
The conditions upon which the Chap-
leau has ����een bonded to J. M. Williams
are very favorable.   The consideration is
180,000 and the payment! extend over
ton months. Three thousand dollars has
boOO paid into the hank as first payment.
The bead calls for ROOD worth of work
to l>e dona, work to commence at once.
Considerable work has already been done
00 the property by the owners-Frank
Pick, C. E. (iwillim, Ben Koberteon snd
J. Tattersall���who have taken out enough ore in the course of development
to pay themselves good wages over and
above all expenses. The ore is very nth
in gold and silver values.
Col. Uobt' Irving, of Kaslo, is serious
Iv ill in Portland.
An effort is being made by the Provincial Mineralogist to prepare for exhibition at the Paris exposition a collection of ores from the mines of Kootenay that will be a credit to the Province.   The space that has been allotted
for the exhibit is large and well chosen,
and ample funds are provided to make
the undertaking highly successful, if
the mine and prospect owpers of Kootenay will devote a little time and attention to assisting in the collection of the
best samples of ore.   Most complete arrangements have been  made for the
care and handling of the samples, and
all that is necessary for the contributor
of samples to do is to deliver the same
to any C. P. R. or Great Northern Railway agent, together with as complete
a summary of the ore's contents, value.
etc , who will take and forward, free of
all cost, to the proper officers at Nelson.
The samples will be held there until a
later date, and then forwarded to Victoria.
This collection should be made a very
creditable one.     Canada  has been al-
loted one-eighth of the  total space allowed the British Empire at Paris, and
Mr. Robertson has been assured by Dr.
Daw son, who has virtual control of this
department, that British Columbia shall
have half the space set apart for the dominion mining exhibit, providing this
province sends a collection worthy ol
such prominence.    Specimens must be
eijrhi inches cube, though exceptionally
fine individual samples of larger size
will be accepted.
Yes, I've got a little brother,
Never asked for him from mother,
Bot he's here;
But I s'pose thev went and bought htm,
For last week the doctor brought him;
Alnt It queer?
When I heard the news from Molly,
Why, I thought at first 'twas lolly;
I Just Imatdned I could get him,
And our dear mamma would let him
Play with me.
But when once I had looked at him
I cried out, "Oh, dear!  Is that him?
Just that mite?
They said, 'Yes. and you may Uu him!'
Wen, I'm sure I'd never miss him,
He's such a fright!"
He's so small it's lust amaiim
And you'd think be wi
He'* so red;
And his nose is like a berry,
Aad he's bald as Uncle Jerry
On his head.
He's no kind of good whatever.
And he cries as if be'd never,
Never stop;
Won't sit up���you can't arrange him,
Oh, why don't father change aim
At the shop?
Now we've got to dress and feed him,
And we really didn't need him,
Little frog!
And I cannot think wbv father
Should have bought him when I'd rather
Have a dog*.

cut by a cyclist wbo was taken ill while
on a journey across tbe continent.    It la

The C. P. R. has given $1500 to
the family of each of the two young
men from Nova Scotia, who worked
as laborers on the Crow's Nest Pass
railway, and who died through
neglect. This is an act of generosity, but it should not prevent the
punishment of those through whose
culpable negligence these two lives
were sacrificed.
Mr. Clergue, of tbe famous Sault
Ste Marie Nickel works, has made
