The wise people of the Slocan
should advertise tho resources of this
district in the east. The emigration
of labor and capital to the west this

will get its share if they do not keep

If a few of the mines around Sandon should strike ore bodies at a
grest depth the country from Cody
to New Denver would produce more
wealth than tbe 'famous Comstock
lode at Virginia City. Think of this
impatient reader, when you feel like
packing your blankets and bitting
the trail for fields far, far away.
An intelligent, respectable looking
man who was evidently perfectly
sober and In a rational frame of
mind, walked deliberately into this
office and without exhibiting a tremor
ot emotion laid two one dollar bills
on the editorial mabogony and requested in, a clear calm tone that he
be credited with a year's subscription. As we have heard no rumors
of an election pending we are at a
loss to understand what is his game.
Jack Looms n, a former resident
of Sandon, now with the First Montana in the trenches at Manilla,
writes friends in town that he is just
recovering from an attack of jungle
fever. Up to the time of writing he
had not been in any very serious
scraps but he considers the situation
ominous and says the boys are all
anxiously awaiting the arrival of
that regular army which is somewhere on the way to the Philip
pines.
Although the depression is deeply
shaded in the commercial life of San
don the outlook for immediate pros
perity is extremely bright. It is
said that the government has pr.r
vided funds for the Queen Bess
road. The Ruth and Ivanhoe will
erect concentrators in the silver-
metropolis, and many other improvements will be made that wilt tend to
increase the bank accounts of local
people, and enable them to advertise
in this paper that they have not been
snowslided by a dulness that has no
business lingering around this great
camp.
The Hospital.
The Miners' Union hospital is now
an assured fact and will be ready tu
receive patients in a few days. The
rooms are being fitted up in a suit
able manner and no effort will be
sparea to make accomodations complete. M!ss Chisholm will be matron
and the physicians will be chosen by
the patients.

Nakusp timbers and planking are

and Payne, to be used in the mine.
Seventy men have been laid off at
the Whitewater owing to the lack of
water for the concentrator. Everything is full of ore and until tbe
water rises only 50 men will be employed.
The crosscut on the Soap property,
under lease to Robbillard A Collins,
is now in 75 feet. Six men are working and rapid progress is being
made. Fifty feet more will tap the
ledge.
Opposition in Prophecu.
The -bovs at tbe Payne mine are
enjoying the benefits of competition.
Pro! J. J. LiJdy, who has gained
considerable celebrity through his
meteorologic prognostications, posts
a diurnal bulletin for the benefit of
the employees. There are those
among the boys, however, who do
not consider the Professor's forecasts
infallible and some of these have
undertaken to post a bulletin of their
own which is as startling aa it is inaccurate. Earthquakes in Japau,
electrical disturbances at Bonning-
ton Falls and cold snaps around the
icecream freezer are predicted in
detail by this amateur weather bur*
eau. There is one great advantage
about an opposition of this kind; tf
the two reports are entirety at variance it would be impossible for both
to be wrong at tbe aame time.

If Cliffe ie Not Lying  Harris  ie
in Luck.
The Mining Review, in last week's
editorials, says:
"We may say once for all that Mr.
Harris has not now, and never had,
anything more to do with the ownership or editorial direction of this
paper than he has with tbe course of

Nelson's Smelter ie Bottled up.
(Nelson  Tribune.)
The man who wa?, and probably
is still, chairman of the board of
directors of the Hall Mines, Limited,
is a sentimentalist. In support of this
statement, it is known that be sanctioned locating the smelter at its
Eresent site, in order that it could do
usiness with the Canadian Pacific
railway only. He did not want to
do business with roads operated by
aliens, even if the roads were located in British Columbia. The re
suit of this sentimentalism is that ore
mined within 30 miles of this com
dany 's>melter is shipped to a smelter
in a foreign country. The reason for
this is that the Hall Mines smelter at
Nelson has no trackage connection
With the Nelson A Fort Sheppard,
a railway that traverses all the mining country between Nelson and the
international boundary line. Another result of this sentimentlism is
the Canadian Pacific hauls silver-
lead ore right through Nelson to its
own stmelter at Trail, sixty miles
away.
Rich Ore in the Athabasca.
SOME GREAT EXPLOSIONS.
In the long tunnel at the Athabasca niine,near Nelson, the men are
now working in some of the richest
ore ever taken ont of the property.
Men working in the tunnel say that
every shot is bringing down large
quantities of rich ore, in much of
which the gold can be seen with tbe
naked eye. One car, containing a
little over one ton delivered at the
mill gave a sample return of f 1200.
The richest streak in the vein coins a
value of 11700 to the ton.
Where the Monopolist ie on Top.
A dispatch from Columbus, Ohio,
says: Tbe antitrust law passed last
winter is to be tested in a peculiar
way. The law, it is supposed, will
make Jabor unions unlawful and this
Shase of tbe question Is to be tested.
n January 5th Attorney Green,
representing what Is known as the
Independent Carpenters anion, filed
an affidavit with the police court
for the arrest of Mr. Frank Wester-
man, charged with membership In
the anion. Tbe affidavit charges
him with belonging to a trust whose
purpose Is to obstruct the free competition of labor. This affects the
entire unionism of the state and if the
law is upheld all unions will be unlawful and membership in them a
crime.
Every living person had two parents, four grandparents, eight great-
grandparents, etc. As the number
of one s ancestors doubles with each
succeeding generation, it therefore
follows that every person, barring
intermarriage, must have had in
thirty generations 2,147,583,646 an-
Peopie who are proud of their descent
may rejoice in tne thought that
among this immense number at least
one of their ancestors might haye
been able to play hockey.
SeoenTone of   Powder Dislodged
200,000 Tons of Rock.
Among the many incidents which
are on record one of the most notable
is that of the explosion of 55 tons of
blasting gelatine, which was being
unloaded from a railway train at
Braamfontein, South Africa, on
February 19th, 1896, and which
was exploded by an end on collision,
says a writer in Cassier's Magazine.
The result of the explosion of this
enormous quantity of one of the most
Sowerful explosives used was to pro-
uce a crater 300 feet long, 65 feet
wide and 30 feet deep in soft ground ;
or, taking a cubic foot of earth as
weighing 100 pounds, the superficial
explosiou of this 55 tons of explosive
gelatin excavated about 30,000 tons
of soft earth. Besides this there was
a total destruction of all buildings
within a radius of 330 yards, while
from that distance to 660 yards all
the buildings were shattered and the
roofs were battered in op to about
1,000 yards- But all these buildings
were built chiefly of corrugated iron
and mud, and therefore were of a
most unsubstantial character.
On the other band, we have in the
United Slates the blowing op of the
Hudson river palisades at Fort Lee
in 1893, when tbe explosion of two
tons of dynamite, placed in a chamber
in tne rock, brought down 100,000
tons of rock ; the blasting at Dinor-
wic quarries, Laraberia, in the same
year, when two and one-half tons of
gelatin dynamite placed in chambers
in the dyke overthrew 18A000tons
of rock, and the destruction of the
famous Talcen Mawr, when in 1895
seven tons of powder poured into two
shafts dislodged a mass of rock computed to weigh from 125,000 to 200,*
000 tons.
From this we find that tbe dynamite on the Interior at Fort Lee was
over 40 times as efficient as the explosive gelatine on the surface at
Johannesburg, while tbe powder at
Talcen Mawr was over 41 times as
efficient. It is hence not surprising
that the superficial explosion of the
300 pound charges of gun cotton
thrown by tbe Vesuvius'guns at
Santiago during the late war between
the United States and Spain produced no serious structural damage, and
simply harassed the enemy by their
frightful reports, which occurred at
infrequent intervals and unexpected
times.
An editorial college exists at Bill-
ville, Ga. A newspaper in that town
graduates editors in three weeks.
The professor announced to a visitor,
"We keep our promises. We has
graduated twenty editors in the past
Sear, and they're all runnln* floor-
bin' newspapers-an' a busi n' of
the guver'ment. All you needs ter
enter tbe class is a pair of scissors a
lot of gall, an'six dollars."
The Barn urn A Bayley circus,
which ts now located permanently
in England, has been transformed
into a joint stock company, limited.
Tbe public is so anxious to take
shares that the capital, ��400,000,
will be subscribed six or seven times
over.
P. T. Barnnm once said: "If you

Hence dividend paying shares are keenly sought and the competition is so
great that dividends will give but five
or six per cent per annum on the price

other class of property is not in vogue
at all The interest in Rossland is unabated, but there is some disappointment that so long a time is necessary to

The working force is being increased
at the Comstock. The concentrator is
now in operation and the great dumps
of concentrating' ore are gradually
diminishing as it is being run to the

ore taken out, two tons of clean ore are
sacked daily.
On tbe Hartney, another of the coming

by the Turner government were in

for speculative purposes only by people who had no means of carrying
out the purposes of the measures, and
were simple holding them wailing for
an opportunity of turning the franchises Over to some railroad company
that would build.

of the Government to oppose railroad

Not everyone who looks at the dial of
a clock knows that the four I's, which
are in the place of the  usual IV to
designate the number four, are there
because of the obstinacy of Charles V, of
France.   The story runs a- follows:
When Henry Vick carried to the \in(
the first accurate clock, the king uai
to him that the IV was- wrong, and
should be changed to III I. * Vick said:
"Vou are wrong, your majesty." Whereat Uie kins thundered out: "I am never
wrong! Take it away and correct the
mistake.'' From that time to this day
tbe four I's have stood as the mark of
the fourth hour on tbe clock's face.

THE PAYNK MINK KARNINOS.
The stock of tbe Payne Mining Company, of British Columbia, Limited, waa
listed 00 tbe Toronto Stock Exchange
the other day, and on tbe Mining Ex-
chsnge. The report of the company,
from its commencement until April
30th, 1898, the date of the last annual
mooting, shows almost unprecedented
success. It is a record of advancement,
and no apology need be made for quoting it in full. The report ia signed by
Mr. W. L. Hoge, President, and Mr.
F. E. Sarbent, secretary, aod reads as
follows:
"We bave the pleasure of submitting
to you the following brief report of the
Payne Mining Company, from the commencement to April 30tb, 1898, and
including returns received on all ore
shipments to that date. It is in no
f*"* *r9*?rt of the operations of the
Payne Mining Company alone, but cov
era also the period from October, 1896,
to April hit, 1887, during which time
the mine was operated by Messrs. A.
r * u5"ne' 8coM McDe����ald, and W.
h. Hodge, the owners, who, however,
turned over to this Company all the
profits realised during that period after
deducting the cost of operating, sai.i
profits amounting to $85,000. The shut
down of the mine in April, caused by
furnished us with an opportunity to
make s complete statement, snd we
hsve made it to cover the entire output
of the mine from the beginning, think
ing such a statement would be more
satisfactory to tbe present stockholders
of the company than a statement from
April, 1897, when the company took possession of the property.
There were mined and shipped to
the smelters during that period 17,-PiK
tons of dry ore, which yielded 1,831,800)1
ounces of fine ailver, and 17,78fUHD
pounds of lead, and netted the Company
1973 932.45.
The profit and lost account shows a
credit balance of $8_7,08iU_, of which
amount 1550,0000 in dividends have heen
paid, leaving s balance on hand of $77,-
0K9.43 in cash and book aop*ounta.
The company haa thus paid in dividends more than 00 per cent- of its re*
ceipts over and above the purchase price
of the mine, all the improvements and
the costs of operation.
It is a most remarkable showing, and
speaks volumes for the great vauicof Ihe
property.
A fire broke out in April, 18U8. at the
mine, near tha mouth of tunnel No. Ii.
which consumed tbe ore house, blacksmith shop, rock breaker, and Uie upper
end of the tramway. Tlie head of the
tramway has been rebuilt, lower down
the hill, at tunnel So. 5, thus avoiding
the steepest part of tbe grade and short
ening ihe line, and the rockiireaker has
heen set up at the shipping point un the
Kaalo - Slocan Railway, and will bt run
hy water power.
As a result of these changes the coat
per ion of .extracting ore aud rhe total
cost of operation should be tea* in the
future than in rhe past.
The mine* were owned and worked by
the Payne Mtin*. from Octob r, 1888, lb
April, I��*7, and bv the Payne Mining
Company from April, 1897, to April. Imm.
The financial statements berewtrh ei��o*
the combined receipts and expenae* of
both companies.
In the financial statements one finds
detail* of expenditure that are very in
tereating. Thos the total coat of working
the mines to April 30th ia tabulated aa

Strange Tale from the Par North
John I'iclte, a resident of Vancouver, i el Is a stranxe tale concerning
Indians of the Northern  part of this
ontirnnt using gold for shot in their
jguri*.   I'iche  is an  old praspeetor
[end and trapper who has pursued the
(wilds oi the Hudson Bav country for
[the last quarter ol a century.   The
[mysterious gold land   Is somewhere
fin the Barrow archipelago, as I'iche
[was told by a priest who was In thai
barren region, principally  northeast
>of the mouth of the Mackenzie river,
for the  last 21   years.   One day an
Indian came to the  priest  from the
I opposite side  of the lake on which
thev were then encamped     He was
suffering from a wound irr the shoulder, and when the missionary d��>c
tond him he was astounded to find A
piece of gold in the. red man's shoul-
jder, that had been fired out ot an old
[flintlock   gun.   The priest showed
Ithe  nugget  to Picbe and produced
oevcral others that he  got from rite
find inns   that   Inhahit   the    barren
[lands, when they returned from their
annual hunting trip to the const for
tbeir supply A golden shot.   Pie he
says that he has  other inlormation
that corroborates that given  by rhe
priest from   a   native, who   himself
��nw the deptwita of gold.
Religion in the Soudan.
Perhaps the world read with con
siderable astonishment the recent
order ot Lord Kitchener closing the
Soudan tn all ruissionaircs. But
really when the situation is studh-d
it is a mutter of no surprise whatever ; it is the only possible thing to
do; it la the only policy whereby the
British government could have* pro
served peace in the Soudan, or for
that matter, the integrity of its vast
colonial system.
Tho lesson of religious tolerance
has been dearly learned. That
Britain has finally learned the business ot colonizing well is evidenced
bv the stability of its world-encircling empire. The utmost roa|>ect is
shown for the religious beliefs of the
various people under its jurisdiction.
Under such a tolerant system the
Mahommedan and Buddhist worship
in security. India taught with blood
the lesson of religious tolerance and
Kitchener In Egypt profits thereby.
The Soudan is Moslem. No attempt
whatever will be made to disturb the
people in their religious faith. If
they are ever broken of that faith
the process will be so gradual that
they will not observe the evolution.
It js one ot the most beautiful commentaries to make on a civilized
government that its first step toward
the rede'iption of the desert was tbe
founding ot a college therein.
Fun For the Shah.
In the London world last week is
a story about the late Shah ot Persia.
Ir. appears that, during the winter
months the little colony of sixty or
seventy English peopie at Teheran
organize concerts for one another's
amusement; there is a dance now
ami then at the Legation, and on
Christinas night every Englishman
in the place is a guest of Sir Mortimer and Lady Durand. When the
weather is cold enough there is skating. Skating is the gratest marvel
of all to the Persians. A few years
ago the late Shah saw twenty skaters
twirling and curling and spinning on
the ice. He was amused; he thought
it wonderful. The next day he sent
to the Legation and borrowed about
a dozen pairs of skates. These he
made his ministers put on and attempt to skate ou the lake in the
palace grounds. The poor ministers
were terribly discomfited, but it was
twice as much as their heads were
worth to refuse. His Majesty was
more amused than ever, and he
nearly had an apoplectic fit from
laughing.
him enough for that; bur I shall try
and give him a very fair plaster of
paris imitation.

Kaslo's Little "Spiel.'
A rink of Sandon curlers and the
celebrated Silver City hockey aggregation went over to Kaslo on
Tuesday to contest with the denizens
of that city for superiority on Ice.
The curlers played a couple of
friendly games in the afternoon and
early evening to try the ice and get
themselves in trim. After supper
the hockey game was called and a
swift contest ensued. At the call of
time the score stood 2 to 2, and another 15 minutes had to be played,
during which the Kasloites scored,
thereby defeating Sandon by 3 to 2.
Immediately after the hockey
match the curlers played. Thos.
Brown, M. L. Grimmett, Isaac Craw
ford and Wm. Wilson skip, met
Waugh's famous rink of Hall, Me
Kinnon, Buchanan and skip. The
game was an interesting one, but
Sandon had much the best of it from
the start and at the tenth end. with
a score of 10 to 4 for Sandon, Waugh
capitulated.
After the sports an elaborate supper was spread in the Kaslo hotel
and a pleasant time was spent with
speech, song and story, accelerated

The Bannock burn group-of claims
situated on Hall creek in the Lardo-

Largest Dicidend eeer Paid.
The Calumet A Hecla Copper Com*
Biny, operating  mines in  northern
ichigan, declared a dividend  last
week of 910 a share.   This makes a
total payment of ��4,000,000; or, ad
ding the dividends previously paid,
it makes 87,000,000 paid during the
company's present nscal year. The
rate is 2S0 per cent on the company's
capital stock of $2,500,000, taken at
par value; but it is only 8 per cent
on the currnnt selling price ot the
stock, which is ��850 (ex-dividend)
on the par value of $25 a share. The
payment of $4,000,000 at one time is,
we believe, the largest cjrsh dividend ever paid by an American mining company. It is one of the largest���if not the largest -ever paid by
a mining company anywhere. Certainly it is the largest ever paid by
such a company out of current earnings.
