Lead Mine Owners Association and
Mayor Pitts of Sandon met representatives of the Sandon Miners'
Union in the Association hall in an
unofficial parley about the labor
difficulty. The result of the conference was that the members of the
Association made known their willingness to pay the union scale to
muckers, car men, etc., and to pay
13.25 to hand drillers and 18.50 to
hand drillers iu shafts and machine
men. They would also recognize
the union and make a compact to
extend over a number of years binding themselves to pay the above rate
of wages.
As the meeting was unofficial so
far as the Association was concerned,
it has not yet been formally considered by the Union.
A meeting of the Association is
billed to take place on the 5th inst.
at which it is probable that a motion
will be adopted appointing representatives to meet the Union officers
and make.an official offer of compromise. The matter will then receive

Has Pricate   Ownership Made You
(Toronto Telegram.)
Canadians dependeut on the Grand
Trunk and the C, P. R. are now requested to pay an increase of from
ten to twenty-five per cent for the
privilege of using the freight service
cf these two great systems.
Canadians dependent on the Intercolonial Railway will go right along
doing business at the same old freight
Public ownership of railways has
left Canada without interest on the
capital invested in the Intercolonial,
and has subjocted the country to the
payment of a now decreasing annual
Therefore public ownership of railways is condemned by people who
never stop to look at the consequences
of private ownership of railways in
this country.
Public ownership has run the Intercolonial at a loss in the eastern
Private ownership has run the
Grand Trunk and the C. P. R. at a
profit in Ontario.
Ontario could have paid interest on
the first cost of the Intercolonial and
carried the annual deficit in the
working expenses of the road out of
the money which private ownership has taken from this province in
excessive and unequal freight rates.
Public ownership in eastern Can
ada has been expensive to the people
collectively, but private ownership
in western Canada has been still
more expensive to the people individually.
The losses on the Intercolonial are
often cited as an example of Canada's
unfortunate experience with tin*
principle of public ownership and
the losses on the advanced freight
schedule issued by the Grand Trunk
and C. P. K. may now !*��� cited as an
example of Canada's still more unfortunate experience with the prin
ciple of private ownership.
There are prospectors and���pros
pectors. There are those who have
followed the calling of prospector,
for years. They occasionally strike
a good thing which they partially
develop, and then sell out. They
prospect for the love of the business
and seem to be happy only when
with burro, or old gray mare, loaded
down with blankets, pick, pan and
shovel and "grub." they roam over
the mountains in search of something
good���something that will fetch them
a "homestake"' or enough to go lo
their native heath and dream away
the rest of their lives. They seldom
or never realize the fruition of their
hopes. They are prospecting still.
No climate is too torrid, none too
frigid to deter them from taking their
chances in the '���stampede." The
farther off the country the more
alluring the prospect appears ; distance seems to lend enchantment to
their view.
Then again there are prospectors
who engage in the work from the
force of circumstances. They camp
with the first prospect thev come
across and make or break by it.
They don't last long. It it is a
bonanza they have struck they realize what they can out of it and return
to pleasanter fields of labor. At all
events they quit  the business and
follow some other calling. Mountain
trails know them no more forever.
In the early days they were called
"summer "prospectors," for they
hugged warm stoves rather than a
cold blanket on frosty ground. They
may have been wise'in doing so, as
far as their personal comfort is con*
cerned. But they never founded
new mining camps, never opened
new mining sections, nor called new
mining territories or states into existence. The summer prospector is a
weak brother in roughing it.
The great northwest is the creation
of the prospectors. The Forty-niners
deepened the tracks made by the
first settlers of Oregon, and later by
the pioneers of Salt Lake, and made
a great state on the shores of the
Pacific. The genos prospector sprang
from the golden sands of the land of
sunshine and flowers. He panned
from Crescent City at the north to
San Diego at the south. He pans no
more, but thousands have taken his
Klace. They have hewn the way,
lazed the trails and pointed others
to the wonderfully rich mineral
fields in what was then the howling
wilderness in the Great American
Desert, but are now the states of
Nevada, Colorado. Utah, Montana.
Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
These great, prosperous, wealthy
commonwealths are the fruits of the
prospectors' toil of their daring, of
their persevering industry and of
their bull-dog-hnng-on-attveness to
the place where "colors" were found.
One may say what he will, but he
must admit that the prospect*��r found
the camping grounds upon which
western towns and cities have since
been built; that he opened the way
which made it possible for the iron
horse to race around our great mountains into thriving mineral centres,
and that through his never tiring
industry Alaska and northern British
Columbia may yet enjoy the fruits
which an advanced civilization yields
to this smiling northwest.���The'Western Miner.

The bricks nsed in building the
city of Deadwood, S. D , are mostly
made from the clay obtained in the
neighboring gulches, which is often
gold bearing; the sand used in
making mortar is from the tailings
from the Homestake mills. There is
not a brick nor a pound of mortar in
these buildings which do not contain
gold. Several years ago brick making at an establishment near town
was discontinued for the reason that
it was found that the clay was rich
enough in gold dust to pay. for pud
dling and sluicing; but hundreds of
thousands of bricks had been burned

E. R. Atherton Co., ltd. THE MONASHEE MINES
If old man Mclntyre, who discovered
the Monashee mine on the mountain of
that name, lives a few years more, he
will in all probability see a great mining camp in the district in which he labored with such indifferent success 18
years ago. When the Cherry creek
placer excitement was on in 1881 2, a
prospector named Mclntyre located a
rich quartz ledge on Monashee mountain and staked three claims. He interested Forbes G. Vernon in the find,
and a Huntingdon mill was placed upon
the property. The ledges were rich,
but the mill would not save the gold,
and Forbes G. Vernon finally let his interest go. The claims were crown
granted and the property has remained
idle for years, though during its operation it is said that $10,000 worth of rock
was shipped from it. Mclntyre is now
70 years of age, and another partner,
who lives in New Westminster, has
reached 75 years. Their property is
now said to have an immense value
Samples taken from the most westerly
of their three claims give an average
of $lo per ton in free gold, while the
ledge on the claims to the east on the
Kettle river side isso rich that free gold
can be seen iu almost every shot that
is put into it.
The Monashee mine was virtually
forgotten until three years ago, and it
was not until John B. and Harry Olds
and Harry Page, who were ranching in
Fire Valley, made a prospecting trip
round Monashee mountain and the
headwaters of Kettle river, that anything further was heard of the old pro.
pt-.rty. The Olds party came upon
good looking quart/.. They located four
claims, and for two years worked quietly upon their development They were
undisturbed, and before the outside
public learned much of their discovery
thev had done enough work to show up
a magnificent prospect. Through their
three claims four strong para.lei ledges
run. Their mode of prospecting was
the sinking of a number of shafts, the
deepest of which is down 80 feet; and
the running of open cuts and stripping
of the ledges, which has been done for
70(1 feet. The ledges have a uniform
width of about six feet, but in one place
one of them shows to a width of 40 feet,
and another ledge with a width of 3J
feet on the surface widened out to 6)$
feet in 25 feet depth The ledges have
walls of porphyry, the ledge matter be-
tajf brittle quartz, carrying gold values
Of from 110 to |68, and sampling it is
8,iid to run $40 to the ton.
Curiosity as to the value of the Olds
property drew Robert Sbiell and other
Nelson men into the district last sprng
The Shiell brothers staked easterly and
westerly extensions of the Olds group,
��Ut have done nothing but surface
wWk so far. Following them David
Whiteley, or lied Paddy as he is better
��nown, staked his celebrated group of

IgEfAYSTBEAK, SANDON, a(^ttfrto 2,  l899.
O Bnen staked eight other claims in the
neighborhood of Ked Paddy's find, two
of them being extensions of his promising group
Robert Shiell, who was the leader of
the latest rush into the Monashee district, says that the district has everything to warrant a liberal expenditure
of money. The section so far covered
is about six miles square in extent, and
ail told about fifty claims have been
staked. The ledges appear to be uniformly strong, but in most instances it
is necessary to get down to the solid
quartz before values can be obtained.
The Olds have been offered substantial
priees for their property, but they decline to sell. They wiil be the" only
claim holders in the district to work
this winter, but upon the result of their
work will in a great measure depend
other operations in the spring. They
are now running a crosscut tunnel to
tap the four parallel ledges They cut
the first ledge in 14 feet, but at practically no depth, and have 400 feet to run
to reach the farthest ledge, upon which
they will have a depth of 200 feet.
The best way into the district is by
way of Vernon, if supplies are to be taken in, as the Cherry creek wagon road
runs within five miles of the camp; but
for men going iu light, the camp can be
made by a 30-mile ride over the trail up

T. Mulvey, R. Clement and N. Nelson,
and work was started Monday.   The
price is in the neighborhood of $35,000
on a bond, with a cash payment down.
W. G. McGregor put through the deal.
The property is situated on the summit
between Lemon and Dayton  creeks,
about one mile from the Evening Star.
The ledge  is quartz,  carrying high
values in gold and silver. It "is a strong
vein, being from 20 to 40 feet wide, but
the ore is  principally concentrating.
No shipments will likely be made until
a plant is erected for treating the ore
on the ground.   The enclosing country
is granite, with quartzite and a belt of
lime spar.    The work  already done
consists of a crosscut tunnel of 220 feet,
cutting the ledge at a depth of 170 feet;
and a 45 foot drift on the lead.   There
are also several open cuts on the surface.

from here to Lemon creek. This will
be of great assistance in taking supplies
up to the various mines If the government could be induced now to do
their part in continuing the road up
Lemon creek, it would be of the utmost
benefit to those who are spending their
money and time to open up that very
valuable section There is no question
that this section demands more attention from the provincial government in
the building of roads than has so far
been given, an! a larger share of the
money that has been and is being collected here from licenses and poll tax
should be invested in the camp.
The new schoolhouse is now completed. It is 24x48 feet, two Btortes,and

building is situated in the middle of
ieven lots, so that there is plenty of
plavgrouna outside, there being a total
of 210 feet on Nelson street. There are
75 scholars attending the school, with
two teachers. J.R.Clement is principal and Miss L. E. Moss assistant, In

When we think of the thousands of
dollars that are being sent from the
mining: camps of Kootenay every
week for clothing that ought to be
purchased of the home merchant, we
are forced to admit that something is
radically wrong, either with the people or the home merchant. Perhaps
both are at fault. One because of
necessity and the other through a
lack of knowledge and foresight, or
a desire to win big profits. However
this may be, the difficulty could be
remedied it the question were given
proper attention by both parties.
All must admit that it is a pernicious
principle. It drains a town of all its
ready cash, local enterprises are
ignored and business becomes stagnant. The money that is sent out is
lost to the community. It goes to en
rich the white slave drivers of the
East. They know nothing of the
welfare of this town or that, and care
less. They do not have to contribute
to the public enterprises,j do not help
to improve the town, do not care who
the needy be. Their demand is cash
before delivery, cash all along the
line. That's business. But where
woulc. the average family be if the
local merchant were to adopt thh
There is another view of the question
that ought to be considered. It is
fold by Kit in the Toronto Mail and
Empire: "it is so easy to talk platitudes when you've had a good dinner
and sit comfortably clothed and warm
in your snug room. But think ot
youth and fresh girlhood fading day
after day in the dim precincts of factory and sweatshop; think of every
hope slowly dying, ot the want and
despair and pinching out of the
meagre gray days. And side by
side with this terrible existence place
the temptations that always come to
poor youth, and to poor girlhood.
How many of us who are better off
would keep to the straight and nar
row path were we in a like case,
while the broad highway on which
lie the pleasures and luxuries of life
shines so near; But on that way lies
sin 1 Well, when the heart and
brain are dulled, to apathy, the conscience is not apt to be very sensitive.
When want of decent food, of clothing,
and heat, and the common necessities
assail one, when honest toil will not
bring honest wage, it takes a very
a rong soul to keep on that narrow,
grim way. And weareonly human.
A great and terrible account will be
laid at the doors of the masters in
trade when the summing up times
come for us all. The traffic of the
factories and sweat shops is as touch
a trafficking in flesh and blood as
ever was that of the slave trade.
There is not one of these despairing
or reckless girls who goes down to
utter destruction and ruin after an
unavailing attempt to earn a decent
livelihood by the work of her hands
but will have to be accounted for by
those in whose hands the power lay
to help her."	
Many of our mining exchanges are
elucidating the question of copper
values and explaining how to quickly
arrive at the value of ores, the assay
of which show a certain per cent.
copper.   They figure it thus:
"The unit of weight is 20 pounds
avoirdupois. It is 1 per cent, of copper in the ore and 1 per cent, of a
ton, 2,000 pounds, is twenty pounds.
Each per cent, of copper contained in
the ore is equal to as many units.
Ore carrying 50 per cent, of copper
(or 50 units), if copper, for example,
Is quoted at $4 per 100 pounds, is
worth 60 cents per unit, and fifty
times sixty equals $30 a ton. For
each decline or rise of 5 cents in the
quotation a deduction or addition of 1
per cent, should be made. If the
quotation is $3.95 then 1 cent from
the price. (60 cents) shall betaken,
making 59 cents the settlement price,
and so on down to whatever the quotation may be. If the ore is quoted,
for example, at $3.75, 5 cents from 60
leaves 55 cents per unit, and ore
carrying 50 per cent, of copper would
amount to 50x55 equalling* in value
$27.50 per ton,"
Taking up these statements the
Spokane journal "Mining" adds this
correction: "It is true that the so-
called unit is twenty pounds avoir
dupois, etc., but a3 to values, that is
another matter, and when copper is
worth $4 per 100 pounds, it is worth
80 cents (not 60 cents) per unit for a
unit is one-tilth part of 100 pounds
and the value one-fifth of $4 is 80
cents. The same calculation will
produce proper results to the whole
problem elucidated in the question so
carefully but unfortunately erroneously worked out"

It now seems to be definitely settled
that the Canadian Pacific Railway company will extend the Columbia & Western line beyond Midway to the Simlikaj

Tye recently dro^e over the proposed
route. As a result, Oscar Eglund, one
of his assistants, and a staff of 20 mon,
have been despatched to the Similka
meen, locating the line. It. was the
original intention to build a line just tn
Pentieton, and thence to Hope, on the
main line, but owing to the sudden drop
required to get down to Okanagan lake
this routs has been abandoned. After
leaving Rock creek, west of Midway,
the road as now virtually decided on,
will return toKeremeos and Princeton,
through the Similkameen valley, and
thence toSpence's Bridge not following'
the old route to Hope. By the new
route it is claimed that satisfactory
grades can be obtained It is to establish the grades that Mr. Eglund is now
in the field with instructions to complete
the work as soon as possible. Construction will begin from the Spence's
Bridge end, and the first contract, it is
understood, will be for 150 miles of

Enormous Beer Consumption.
London Home Magazine: With every
tick of the clock, ��6 15s worth of beer
vanishes down the world's throat;
every minute ��410 worth disappears;
every hour the world pays ��24,651 for
its beer; and every day it swallows the
yearly income of 8,000 middle class
families in nearly ��600,000 worth of the
"brown beverage." Stupendous as
these figures are, especially when we
consider that the world's beer bill for a
year amounts to ��216,000,000 sterling,
the figures which represent the quantity
consumed are incredible. The beer
which is consumed throughout the
world in a single year would make a
lake 6 feet deep, 8] miles long, and a
mile wide, or 2,139 acres in area. In
this vast lake of beer we could easily
drown all the English speaking people
to the number of 120,000,000 throughout
the entire world, or we could give a
beer bath to every man, woman and
child at the same time in the entire
continent of America, while all the peoples of England, Scotland, Ireland and
France could And standing room on its

The Hired Girl.
Behold the hired girl when she swim-
meth in the prosperity of a high labor
market. She dresseth like the Queen
of Sheba the while she applieth at the
agency for a position in a small family
without washing or children. She
lightly promiseth her services to the
anxious housewife to begin next Monday morning, but cometh not again to
service, for she hath taken another job
at a dollar's advance. She burneth the
steak and breaketh the china, and
crieth, "Ah, ha! I am in larse request.
I can wipe my feet on the upholstery of
the earth, and I shall not be called to
account therefor." Shegoeth out to see
her cousin for an hour and remaineth
three days. She leaveth the floor beneath the beds unswept, and permitteth
the cat to eat her rich dish rag, for she
knoweth that neatness is not a necessity
in good times. She giveth much back
sass and quietly decani pet Ii on the eve
of housecleaning.
The Queen Hates Gambling.
No stronger evidence of her sentiments can be given than her refusal to
allow the Prince oi Wales to make use
of Windsor Castle during the Ascot
races. Although Windsor is within easy
drive of the Ascot course, and the
Queen, with her court, always away in
Scotland at the time of the races, vet
the prince is invariably driven to lease
a country seat in the neighborhood of
Windsor for the Ascot week at an expense he can ill afford. He is obliged
to do this because his mother will not
permit games of hazard under her roof.
She is willing to give him the use of
Windsor Castle provided he will ab
stain from cards    Rather than comply
with the stipulations of his venerable
mother he prefers to lease a country
seat at an expense of $25,000 for a single
week, where he can surround himself
with his own cronies and play cards as
he pleases.
