head  ol Kettle
that   there   is
undoubtedly some good placer
ground there and that some men are
taking out $4 to 95 per day. Considerable difficulty is being experienced with high water just at present but the claims have merit and

this summer.

A Kaslo woman who said her
grass was getting too long, went into
a hard ward store to buy a sickle.
She said she guessed she'd take one

The conviction has come to Mr.
Macdonald after an extended and
careful study of the Payne mine, in
reviewing its past history, and considering its present condition and
future prospects, that it will continue
to maintain its position among the
great dividend paying mines."
Paid for their Liccs.
The C. P. R. has given H600 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 the famous Sault
Ste Marie Nickel works, has made
the important statement that be has
just completed a contract under
which his company would supply
Krupp, the German gun maker with
nickel steel for a period of five years.
By a new process he had turned out
in Sault Ste Marie nickel steel at a
cost of 815 a ton, though the United
States navy paid ��400 a ton for a
similar article. Algoma nickel is to
bo used to fill she Krupp contracts
and the Sou may s ��oii boast of one of
the largest metallurgical redaction
works in the world.

The Citq's Opportunity.
Mr. J. M. Harris, for the Sandon
Water & Light Co.. while complaining of the assessment before the
Court of Revision, stated that the
company would be pleased to receive
813,250 for its property, exclusive of
ground,  within the city limits.
The city cannot afford to overlook
this offer' The water and light
franchises should never be allowed to
remain in private hands. The city
here has an opportunity to assume
control of these branches of the public service. To refuse to do so would
be doing an injustice to the community.
The Spokesman-Review of Tuesday gets off a long article headed,
'' Ma n y M e n Wanted ; Wor k W a i ts
for Thousands of Laborers," etc.,
etc., in which it states that there is a
great scarcity of laborers in the states
of Washington and Idaho and in the
Province of British Columbia. The
article states that several thousand
men are wanted in the railroad and
mine camps of the North West and
that unprecedented wages are being
paid. In one place, speaking of the
Red Cross Emuloyent Agency of Spokane the article says:
"Yesterday a varied assortment of
positions was filled, men and women
being sent to the following places :
Medical Lake, Colfax, Wash., and
Nelson. Kaslo, Crepnwood.
Denver and Ainsworth, B. C
wages ran as high as ��0 a day."
At this distance it is hard to say
what the condition of affairs may be
in Washington or Idaho, but so far
as British Colombia is concerned the
statements are purposely misleading.
No such wages a* $6 per day have
ever been paid for laborers in the
Kootenay, aud such wages seldom
prevail tor mechanics. There is no
scarcity of men. hut on the contrary
many are out of employment, on
strike or through the effects of the
strike. The class of labor employed
on the railroads In Kootenay is
mostly of the lowest order. Contractors in the Lardo-Duncan are
violating the alien labor law regularly. Both tlieC. P. ii. and the K.
R A N. contractors are bringing in
"Dagoes"from BonnerV Ferry and
other points across the line to work
on construction. The wages paid for
this class of laborer- are lower than
civalizc.l white men would care to
work for.
The employment agencies, In sending men from Spokane to fill vacan
ciea in B, C, are placing those men
in a compromising jxwition as they
are liable to arrest for infraction of
the alien law immediately upon their
arrival on the Canadian side.
The Spokesman-Review's object in
printing such an article is easily
understood by anyone who has followed it through the Coeur d'Alene
trouble and other labor disturbances.
It would be idle to doubt that tin-
Review is being paid for the part it
is taking in the difficulties in Idaho,
and if it Hoods that state and adjoining territory with cheap nori union
men it but serves its paymasters.
Its machinations in Idaho are none
of our concern. When it interferes
in B. C. it is time for protest. The
Spokesman-Review has degenerated
within the past few months from a
josition at the head of North West
journalism to common journalistic
prostitution. Its bias taints its news
and It is no longer honest or reliable.
A Grand Figure.
[Toronto Telegnun I
Artemus Ward sacrificing all his
wife's relations in the battles for freedom was not a grander figure than
Sir Wilfred Laurier and his followers offering up the white laborers of
British Columbia on the altars of
Imperial unity.
Oriental labor, Chinese or Japanese is the cloud on the industrial
future of British Columbia.
A wholesale incursion of Japanese
laborers will bring down wages in
many lines of activity to rates which
will not enable white workmen to
support their wives and families.
If tree and open competition with
Japanese labor is an Imperial necessity, a steadily downward tendency
in rates of wages and standards ot
living is the sacrifice which British
unity will demand from white labor
in British Columbia.
Self-interest forces Japan into union
with Great Britain against Russia in
the Far Hast. There is not the slightest danger that a law for the protection of white labor in B. C. would
weaken an alliance which is (bonded
00 the unchangable truth that Japan
has everything to fear from Russia
and everything to hope for from
Japanese laborers might take
every job in British Columbia without taking the coat off the back oil
Sir Wilfred Laurier or a meal out of
the mouths of James MeMullen's
children. The "sacrifices" for which
Sir Wilfred Laurier claimed so much
credit will fall exclusively on the
western Orcadians, who will have to
take th. risks of hunger and naked
neas if British Columbia is to becotae
a free and open market tor Asiatic
labor in any form.
Molijbdcnite Wanted.
The Toronto Telegram says a letter
was recently received at the Ontario
Bureau ot Mints from Mr. Harrison
Watson. Curator of the Canadian
section of the Imperial Institute, intimating that a good market has open
ed up in England for molybdenite.
Mr. Watson writes that a large firm
in Liverpool are now anxious to obtain regular supplies of the mineral
from Canada, as they are manufacturing a new article which has open*
ed a consumption for molybdenite,
and say that they could take any
reasonable quantity providing it is
good and free from silica or gangue.
Canadian samples received there
[have been fairly satisfactory.
Molybdenite, which somewhat re
sembles galena, has been found in
many places in Kootenay. In the
Ainsworth division, in the vicinity of
the town of Ainsworth, several
ledges which carry good percentages
of the metal are known to exist.
About the head of Ten Mile and
Lemon creeks, in the Slocan, several
ledges have been located by pros
pectors who mistook molybdenite for
galena or graphite. Theee claims
have almost invariably been allowed
to lapse when the nature of the metal
contained became known. In the
Rossland district molybdenite is of
almost universe! occurrence in the
class of ore found there, but it is in
such small particles as to lie difficult
to save.
The recent demand has stimulated
a search for the metal in Ontario and
and the state of Washington, in I Kith
of which places it is known to exist
It is very probable that the Kootenay
deposits of molybednite will receive
attention in the near future.

Koch, who is looking after the company's interests on Ten Mile, to haul
tho remaining _M tons of ore al the
mine to the landing for immediate ship
ment; also to thoroughly clean up the
grounds about the building1 and put the
property in ship sha|>e. This would indicate that early operations wen* contemplated, but another order has been
given that tends to strengthen the belief that the Enterprise management
will hold out to the last for the trt wale.
The supplies that were taken to the
mine when Immediate work was con
templated, are to be disposed of at tin-
best figure obtainable.
All this is probably ordered in view
of the early visit to the property of Mr
Richard Popklae, a director of the New
Zealand Minerals Company, who is on
his way from London to British Columbia to confer on the spot with the com
puny a representalives, for the purjxise
of establishing the best possible organisation for working the mine to the
greatest advantage.
In view of the  position taken by the
Enterprise company  showing their de
tei initiation   to   force   a   reduction   in
wages if possible, tbe following  from ��
circular issued to the shareholders un
der date of June iSd, will he interest in^:
"Since the issue of  Mr   Kendall* re

mine last week and inspected the workings on the property.    He was highly
pleased with the property, and freely
expressed himself so.    The only draw
back in the immediate  working of the
mine is.   he   states, the   question   of
getting miners.   Under different conditions and in some other countries this
would be an easy matter, but not so
now in the Slocan.   Fabulously rich as
the Knterprise ore is, yet the management refuses to pay   its  miners more
than t8 a day, and the result is that it
cannot get miners.

The Nelson Miner had several interesting articles omitted from the last
l��ages of Its special Kootenay number,
which has just been issued. The special edition is very attractively put together and is well filled with descriptive articles on the different camps in
Kootenay Following is a well-written
article which was crowded out of the
���peeial number, descriptive of proper
ties on Ten and Twelve Mile creeks:

The hlstorv of Ten Mile creek Is in re-
ailtv that of the Knterprise mine, a* the
whole success of the camp has hinged
upon its development.   There are scores
of promising prospects on the other side
of the creek, and the section bears evidence of the existence of large bodies of
ore, of which the  Enterprise  is  chief.
Most of the claims are in the hands of
the original owners, and  no   better or
more virgin territory for the capitalist
exists in  Kootensy   than that  of Ten
Mile.   The   Enterprise group was discovered in 1894 by K. I.  Kirkwood and
J. F. McKinnon, who were prospecting
the vicinity from the Cody divide. Clean
ore was found on the surface and two
claims staked.   They   kept   their    find
quiet for a time but upon  the big assays
liecoming known a rush set in, resulting
in whst lis* been termed the lower Slo-
csn excitement.   Prospectors spread out
over Springer,  Lemon,  Kokanee, South
Kaslo and other creeks during the following season*, and a vast mineral territory wa* opened out.    In the fall of 1895,
the Knterprise group was bonded to J. A.
Finch for 116,000, which  bond he afterwards took up.   Trails were built, cabins
erected, and a Urge force of  men put to
work developing the claim.     Two carload* of ore  were shipped,  netting the
owners $.**". j>er ton.     With the building
of the wagon read, larger buildings were
erected, and these have since been again
enlarged.   There are seven  tunnels on
the group, with a full quota   of shafts
and raises, developing tbe most continuous and high grade chute of ore known
in the west.    It   i*  proveo  735   feet  in
depth and many thousand feet in length.
iWtween the Knterprise and the creek
is the Iron Horse, owned   by A. Mcl-ean
.wid the estate of D. McDonald.    It was
bonded two year* sgo  by   Kvans,   Coleman A Beans, of Vancouver, who failed
to take up their option.
Above the Knterprise is the Km pre**
Fraction, owned by K.I. Kirkwood; the
MabOtt, by U. I- Kirkwood, I). Grant,
��� i. Williamson and A. Tanks; the Ohio
ami Ohio Fraction, by F. Well* and R.
I Kirkwood These properties have
been Worked all winter, with very promising results. There are three veins on
each clsim. all showing shipping ore,
with high vslues. Goo I cabins have
l��een erected and much surface work
done. A tunnel on the MsUm is in
abont 70 feet, with a strong ledge in
view. ��hi the Ohio are two long tunnels
driven on separate veins,
To the east   of   the   Knterprise is the
Qatineaa and Bimooo   group of four
claims. OWned principally by C. E-
Sinithenngsle, T. Keid and 0. F. Nelson
of New DtttVer,     They have two strong
leads on the property, npoo which work
hs* been done.
Op the west  of the   Enterprise i* the
Noepawa group of   which  K.  Shannon
and a. McOlUlvray, of New Denver, are
Ihe owners. This wa* two years ago
under bond to the IWll-lrving Syndicate.
ol Vancouver now owning the Thompson group, on Four Mile. They did a
great deal of work on the vein, ami erected tine buildings. They afterwards
throw up the bond, with s loss of sev-
end thousand dollar*. Two carloads of
on? were shipped, giving good returns.
There is a tine vein on the entire group,
and recently the owners uncovered a tine
chute of clean ore a few feet from where
the bonders quit work.
On the top of the bill it the Bondholder group, which bai been worked by
Vanoouvei people, sad has bad a most
chequered career. A great deal of money
has been expended on it. It is supposed
to have the Enterprise vein and is considered valuable ground. There is shipping ore exposed on the group in several
places, and should yet turn out a shipper.
An English company ia reported to be
seeking to bay it.
Farther west, A. Brindle has a promising group called the Royal Star, situated on Gerness creek, a small stream
running into Ten Mile. There is a big
ledge exposed, with a 50-foot tunnel on
it. Good ore is showen. Next cornea
the Dalhouaie group, also owned in New
Denver. It was also under bond to Vancouver capitalists, but was allowed to go
by tbe board. Phenomenal aasaya of
many tbouaand ounces in silver have
been obtained from the ore. There are
several ledges, upon which extensive
workings have been opened up.
The Hydrabad group is owned by F.
Wells and P. Sheran, of New Denver. It
was once bonded for a tidy sum and allowed to lapse after a small amount of
work. It has a wide ledge and first-class
The Edmonton group, owned by C.
Sandison, waa under bond to A. G. Ferguson, of Vancouver, He had 10 men
working for several montha. After
spending many thousands of dollars he
finally gave up the task. The Edmonton haa a strong lead, showing kidneys
of high grade ore.
About two miles from the lake is the
Kalispell group, now in poaaeaaion of a
syndicate of Black Hills people. There
are fine buildings and workings on the
group, with aa big a lead aa exists on tbe
creek. There have been several carloads
of ore shipped, one return from the smelter giving 4-7 ounces of silver to the ton.
A concentrator will yet be required for
the Kalispell, as there is a great amount
of concentrating ore in sight.
The properties above are all on the
south side of Ten Mile, and are only a
few of the host of claims on the creek.
On ths north aide are many more prospects, but not ao much attention haa
been paid to these as on the south
side. In the vicinity of the Half Way is
a regular nest of claims, the bulk of
which have strong leads and good ore.
It is expected this year will show up
several shipping mines. The Silver
Nugget, Topax, Independence, Silver
Band. Oregon City, Cougar. Fairy Qneen
and Westmount groups, run up the hill
facing the Knterprise, end more or lees
work has been done on them all, with
ore showing on all. Then there is the
Cnited   Kiupire,  Alexandra  end Way-J
mouth, which are believed to have the
Enterprise vein on each.
On the north fork ia the Butte group
owned by Murphy and Taylor. It bas a
big body of ore in eight. The ownere
built a good trail up the creek last aum-
On the south fork among other rising
properties ia tbe Conundrum group,
owned by Thomlinaon Bros., and Hughes
Bros., of New Denver. A good pack trail
was built last season np the creek, reaching over to ��he Ocean group and a number of other prospects.
Further up the main creek is tbe U.
and 8. and Boomerang groups, on both
of which there are bodies of clean ore
exposed. In tbe baain surrounding the
head waters are numbere of likely prospects, an excitement over which prevailed two years ago.
The Whitewater Mine.
In a recent report the manager of tbe
Whitewater Mines states that values
were being lost in the concentrating
process, and that, by tbe addition of
certain appliances, those values can be
saved. This the directors of that company have authorized, and so better returns may be expected in the future.

Strewn along the course of 9bips between India and England are 400
millions of dollars worth of gold and
diamonds. This field has never been
prospected. It has no timber, bat
water is plentiful.
Many papers, east and west, have
been printing an item about the Fidelity, "on Twelve Mile creek." This
property is close to New Denver, not
more than a mile distant The false
item was spread by a jack-leg paper
whose editor does not know enough
about the Slocan to wad a gun.
When other camps are advertising
for good miners and offering $3.50 a
day, and csnnot get them fast enough,
it is difficult to understand how tbe
Slocan operators can hope to get men
at $3. Good miners are a scarce article just now, and they do not have
to work for $3 in the Slocan. Cheaper
camps to live in than this are glad to
get them at $3.50.
The Miner at Nelson recently pub
lished a special edition purporting to
contain a complete account of Koote-
nay's minerals. A writer in the
Kootenaine complains because the
Miner omitted saying anything about
the Ainsworth division, from which
19,000,000 worth of ore has been shipped. The writer should make some
allowances. The Ainsworth division
has been here for centuries, while the
Miner editor has been here only about
a year, scarcely time enough to get
the hay out of his bair.
The Toronto Telegram comments
thus on the efforts of the mine operators to reduce wages in B. C: "The
miserable 81.25 per day which an
alien monopoly pays to the miners at
Sudbury is the standard by which the
mining brokers ot Toronto condemn
tbe British Columbia miner's demand
for $3.50 for an eight-hour day. They
say: 'Joe Martin is a dangerous man.
'lie has struck a hard blow at the
���British Columbia industry. The
'miners at Sudbury are glad to get
'$1.25 for a ten-hour day, and why
'should the British Columbia miners
'get 83.50 for an eight-hour day?'
'The foregoing words show that
the British Columbia government has
alienated the mining brokers. It
might be nearer the facts to say the
eastern brokers; but the western
brokers are like them in their inability to sec any virtue in a law which
increases the cost of mining for the
benefit of the miners.   Ontario would
sooner level the wages of the Sudbury
miners up to the British Columbia
standard than level the wages ot the
British Columbia miners down to the
Sudbury standard. It is a disgrace
to the country that the nickle wealth
ot Sudbury, which has filled ths
pockets of alien millionaires, has
never paid decent living wages to
Canadian laborers. British Columbia
does well to resist any approach to
tbe Sudbury Rtandard of wages. The
brokers who are shouting now against
$3.50 tor an eight-hour day in British
Columbia would son be shouting
against 83 for a ten-hour day. Ontario objects to the conditions which
have enabled a monopoly to extract
the Sudbury nickel on its own terms,
and those conditions have not been
such a blessing to the Sudburv district tha. they should be reproduced
in British Columbia."
Many of those who returned from the
Atlin mines on the last trip of the Cutch,
says the Nanaimo Free Press, speak in
no uncertain terms as to the serious disappointment the Atlin mines have
proved to nearly every person who has
gone in there. The expression of be-in*
"salted" is used in its most emphatic
meaning, and without the slightest
reservation. It is openly stated that the
so-called Atlin nuggets, are not Atlin hut
Klondike gold, and that every day mines
are "salted" so as to sett them to "ehee-
chackos" and let the owner get out of
the country. Kven if gold does exist in
that section of the province, it is not
suitable for the individual miner, and
can only he successful as )ar*e hydraulic
propositions, and although there is hydraulic machinery on tiie ground, with
capital behind it to open up work, the
terrible muddle and tangle of the claim*
prevents any work being done. tine of
our informants stated that not only had
one claim been staked more tlnm six-
tean times over, but that it had been
actually recorded by sixteen different
persons. And that three, four, live or
even more records of a single claim i�� the
general experience. He says it a ill take
the judge at least a year, and hard work
at that, to straighten out the troubles
The extension of the close season for the
mines to August 1st, is also bitterly condemned, as no work can he done till
then, and the season will tie too far advanced for any practical work to lie affected. The leading pun at Atlin is that
Martin has "Cottoned" Atlin for a year,
without the slightest "Semdin jblance"
of l>Hum(e)or", and that beyond revival
even by a presidential prescription.
The only nlacer mines that have so far
shown indication of wages, ate on Pine
creek, for about half a mile above and
the same distance   \m\ovt the Discovery.
The wages now paid in the district
range from f] .50 to $.'1.50 \mr day, and
the very cheapest living there will cost
$1.50 per day. Each of our informants
expressed their adverse opinion of Atlin
with the strongest of adjectives, and
wound up with the expression that a
man is tatter off at $2 a day in Nanaimo
than if he had the best chance for wages
at Atlin.

A certain eminent London physician has a telephone in his bedroom.
One night quite recently the bell
rang, waking both he and his wife
from a deep sleep. At once the medico went to the phone and over the
wire came the command "Please
come at once to Leicester Square-
Lady Brown is very ill." With an
imprecation he handed the 'phone to
his wife. "For heavens sake," he
said, "say that I am out of town."
She complied obediently. Next
morning the medico called at the
Brown mansion and expressed his
deep regret to Lord Brown that he
had been absent when called. "But
you were really not home?" inquired his Lordship anxiously. "Of
course not," onblushinglv replied the
physician. ' 'Then, my dear doctor,"
said Lord Brown, earnestly, "I most
sympathise with you in your terrible
misfortune, for l distinctly heard a
man's voice in your bedroom talking
to your wife !"
There is still a groat deal of snow
