He admitted the lease made by him

himself, was and is owner of the land
in fee simple and further claims that
he is entitled to the surface rights of

counter claim for $150 rent, and interest until payment, or judgement.
Mr. Cassidy based his arguments
mainly upon the fact that the Crown
grant was for a mineral claim and
therefore the defendant had no sur*
face right to the land but only to the
minerals.
Mr. Justice Drake said that a man
could hold no better title than a
Crown grant.

THE COPPER MARKET.
Manipulated bu Speculators���Values
Badly Inflated.
The phenomenal advance in the
copper market during the last few
months is attracting general attention, just as the rise in wheat a year
ago excited universal Interest, and it
is worthy of comment that the saro��
class of speculators are engaged in
the manipulation of the copper market as were interested in the grain
deals. Moreover, the causes which
have produced the remarkable activity in both cases are strikingly similar, and the conditions precluding
the successful continuation indefinitely of the operations now being
conducted on such a gigantic scale
will be found the same that ir ter
rupted the course of the daring operators who created havoc with the
wheat market.
An unusual demand for copper
was created by the expansion ot the
electrical industries and other applications to which the metal entered.
This of itself would have greatly
influenced the market, but the prevailing craze for trusts and combinations and corners at the time led
manipulators of industrial securities
to invade the field with a view of
commanding the market. These
operations soon became generally
known, and tbe result was au advance in values all along th** line.
Tire importance of the movement
was exaggerated bv the public, and
there was a general rush tor copper
pjecuritlea of any and all descriptions.
Old mines which had been shut down
for years were re-opened and their
securities floated, new properties
were exploited, development companies were formed and every
means known to the stuck manipula
tor was resorted to for the purpose
of producing additional paper for the
speculating public. As a result it is
estimated by conservative experts
that the market, quotations for copper securities traded in at the present
time represent an advance of at least
75 per cent, upon the highest possible
figure that could be secured lor all
the properties of this class under the
most favorable conditions in actual
commercial operations. The ulti
mate result of such inflation of tbe
value of Industrial securities must
react upon the industry generally.
The government records go back
to 1882. when the total production
in United States was 40,467 long tons.
Io 15 years the capacity of the country's mint's has been increased to
220,571 long tons, the record of 18:17.
Tbe official statistics of 1898 have not
yet been published. Although the
government has been collecting stat
istics in this field for only 15 years,
the United States has been numbered among the copper-producing countries since 1845, when the output of
all the mines was 100 tons. The industry in United States may be said
to have been founded or established
in that year. It has been growing
ever since, and all the Old World
manufacturing countries depend upon
America tor their supply. The best
statistics available show that the
world's production ot copper in 1897
was 399,247 long tons, of which
North America contributed 239,679,
.Europe 88,828, South America 25,
300, Asia 23,000, Australia 15,000
and Africa 7,440. Since 1889 the
world's production has increased by
139,410 long tons,   of   which tbe
United States haa added 119,005, or
more than the entiere European output. The value of copper exported
from the United States, principally
to supply the European market, Is
stated officiallv in the government
report for 1897 to have been 132,755, ���
053. With the opening up of so
many new mines and the introduction of improved methods in mining,
the copper production tor 1899 will
probably febow a greater increase
| rhan any thus far recorded. ���Chicago

TROUT LAKE DISTRICT.
An Estimate of What Could be Done
With Railtcay Facilities.
[Trout Laka Topic.)
To get an idea what the district
could produce, presuming that tlie
various developed prospects were to
tui _ io and ship their ore which
wrll be the case only when a railway
is running through the valley���the
following is a conservative estimate:
Broadview, with a large showing
and extensively developed, bus at
present 800 tons of ore ou the dump,
Wides the various workings on tlie*
group. Then the True Fissure,
with a concentrator, could easily
turn ou* 50 tons per month. The
Great Northern at present has 200
tons of ore at the workings which
would easily, if the mine was vigorously worked; be ang)r*- ited by a
monthly output or st ieaa fifty tons.
Then Trout Lake's Jtoi.ner mine, the
Silver Cup. woekedat its full capacity, would prod nee 300 tons per
month. 'P s St. Elmo, when more
developed, e �� Id eisily account lor a
monthly i.utput of ten tons. The
Bhck Eagle would probably average
five rotia, the Bad bunt ten tons, the
Abb t when the ore body is encountered, at least twenty tons, the Beatrice I in) tons, and all the other
ciaimj an aggregate of 20 tons per
month, making a grand total per
annum, under present deVi iopmtit, of
7500 ton?. The estimate is not over
drawn for Trout Lake, as regards
trails and means of communication
from the 1* st properties, is in splendid condition. Of course a great
deal wonld depend on the method of
deve'ooment adopted at the various
mines. If the property is opened up
with a view to r nure sale, very little
ore '��evond that required to pay
working expenses would be shipped'.
On the other hand, if they are worked 'vim�� view to periodical dividends tbe total amount will be
greaiy increased. On the whole
the Letiraare is �� fair one and well
wit hi   ���:ie mark.

ALU VAN   MINKS.
���
Mr. Donald Kennedy, writing from 70
Gracechurch street to the Financial
News, says:
'���Sir,���Referring to vour interesting
interview with Mr. A. McMillan, of
Kossland, British Columbia. I am glad
to note that Mr. McMillan drew atte*��-
tippu "to the fact that the silver-lead
mines of the Slocan pay haudmtmelv
The general public nave an idea that
silver mining does not pay; whereas,
im a matter of fact, the silver-lead
mines of British Columbia, in several
instances, have paid extremely well. It
may surprise many of your readers to
hear that the greatest dividend-payer
of all the mines in British Columbia is
a silver-lead mine. The celebrated
Payne mine, situated near Sandon, in
theSlncan district, has paid more in
dividends than any mine iu the whole
ol tlie Province Even when silver
and lead were at their very lowest the
Payne paid larger monthly dividend*
rliMii even the great Le Roi mine The
profits for the month of November last
were I looyouo.

The assertion, so weird and desolate,
snd that bears with it thougbrs of a
grave in icy .unknown depths, thst Slocan

No thought waa given to tlte -possibility
of ever recovering hi* hody. hut on Monday evening, It waa found floating near
die shore at Roseoery, and waa recovered by the boat officials snd taken to
Nelson Tuesday for lairial.
Kvans was a native of Maine. He was
a desolate spirit, and upon being rescued

long and persistent searches were made
for the bodies of other unfortunates who
lost their lives in ths icy water at various
times in the past seven years, they were

THB   TRKADWBL-   MINKS.
According: to late advices from -Juneau
the new stamp mills being. erected by
the Treadwell Mining Company on
Douglas Island haVe commenced grinding away at the low-grade ore that
yields many hundreds of thousands of
dollars every year. The number of
stamps added is 750 and the output of
the mine will be materially increased.
The Al-ki and City of Topoka have
been cat rying the roachinerv north for
the last three months The new mills
will mean the employment of a great
many more men.
In this connection it is interesting to
note that local and Seattle papers have
gone far astray in giving the credit of
the discovery of the famous Treadwell
mine to Peter E. DeVille, who claims to
hsve visited the Klondike in 1879.    *
The original discoverer snd locator of
the Treadwell miue was, it is said,
Peter Erussard, a Frenchman After
Erussard made the discovery he did
considerable work in stripping off a
portion of the surface, leaving exposed
a large quantity of quartz of such low
grade that he thought it was practically worthless, and at the same time
he discovered that he was not a citizen
of the United States and could not
hold the property This was in 1881 and
early in the next year John Treadwell
appeared on the scene and Erussard
offered to sell him the property. After
examining the ledge Mr. Treadwell
aiked him what he wanted for it and
was told thar as he was in need of a
suit of clothes and if he would buy
one for him he would turn the property over. Mr Treadwell gave him an
order for the clothes on Koekler A
James, and Erussard picked out a $85
suit and transferred the now famous
Treadwell mine.
Mr. Treadwell gave the property a
thorough prospecting and then went to
Han Francisco where he interested
Messrs. Frye, Freeborn and Hill, of
San Francisco, and Senator John Sherman, of Nevada. These men furnished
the monev with which to thorougly
prospect the property. A five-stamp
mill was erected and a tunnel started
Tbe quarts was run through the mill
but being of such low grade with a
five-stamp mill it would not pay. It
was, however, ascertained that instead
of being s vein of quartz it was a
mountain. Mr. Treadwell again visited
San Francisco and explained to his
partners the vaatuess of tho deposit
and that with 120 stamps the property
would pay hnndsoincdividends A 19V
stamp mill was purchased and Mr
Treadwell personally superintended its
erection and in August, 1885, the mill
was started and in 1890,180more stamps
were added, making it the largest mill
under one roof in the world. The mine
has made all of its owners millionaires
from an original investment of a 835
suit of clothes.
Peter Erussard. or "French Pete" as
he was commonlv known, remained
around .luneau until 1888,when he went
tn Seattle and opened a fish market
Since the sale of the mine Erussard has
been the recipient of many substantial
favors from Mr. John Treadwell.���

SLOGAN   ORE   SHIPMENTS.
Since the stocking of the Payne
more attention has been paid to the
Slocan by eastern people. They are
commencing to realize that the Slocan
is the richest of all the rich camps ot
British Columbia. The ToronsO Globe
has the following reference to our
output:
"There is no better method' of
judging of the progress of British Columbia Mining than in studying the
Slocan ore shipments. February's
shipments bring the total shipments
from Januarv 1 to March 1 up to
6,500 tons It this rate of shipment
is continued it will bring the output
lor the year up to a figure more than
double that of 1898, will add new im
portance to the silver lead producers
of the Slocan, and will do more to
stir up the already awakening capitalists to these if rest dividend-paying
properties than columns of carefullv-
prepared statistics on the merits of
the Slocan as a monev-'making dis
trict. In the year 1898 tbe total
amount of ore shipped from the Slocan
reached 17,000 tone. If the present
rate of shipment is maintained, and
there is hope that it will be, the out
Sot for 1899 will be in the neighbor
ood of 40,000of a value ef $5,000,000
The mines that were shipper, last
year are heavier shippers this year,
and in every case the promise is thst
the output from many, if not all of
them, will increase instead of diminish."
Americans are going to the Atlin
lake in large numbers confident that
the alien law will be repealed. Unless the law is-repealed it will retard
the progress of that camp. More

THB   ARLINGTON   DKAL.
The following is taken from the Spokane Review, snd it is to bu hoped
there is more in it thsn a mere puff for
Prank Watson, one of the principal
newspaper miners on the coast-
A deal has been eonsumated in
Spokane which will Introduce Hoston
capital Into the lead Ustrict of the Slocan and will doubtless bring one of the
promising properties of that part of
British Columbia immediately to the
front as a great mine. The Arlington
mine ts the property in question Who
the Boston capitalists are is not announced af*pre*eiit, but there is every
assurance that the deal is a go
The Arlington mine is one of the
richest silver properties in the vicinity
of Slocan City    It has been owned for
about two years hy a Spokane company
which was organised by Frank War
son.   The property comprise* the Arl
ingtou and Burlington claims and was
Uo aied by  Robert Cooper and C.  K
Fielding who have ever since rerained
interests in it    In 180; John A. Finch
had tho group under bond and did con
siderabie work upon it without finding
the main lead, his tunnel,  as subse
que.nl   devidofunent    pro veil,  having
been run in rhe wrong direction    Later
ou tho mine lay idle for many months
until  Frank  Watson came along and
after looking it over coiiclud��*d that it
was  one of tin*   richest  showings he
had ever seen and took a bond on it for
|50.0Wr.   Then .followed the formation
of the Spokane company
Tha propertv has seen bard times.
Tbe company was hampered for lack of
funds and th* Arlington was away up
Springer creek where no road hsd ever
been built snd shipment of ore wa��
therefore expensive. Then there were
c inflicting interest* and dissensions
among the stockholder* and the resulr
was slow development and a rapidly
accumulating debt. In all 1.200 feet of
work was done, most of it being accomplished under the direction of Frank
Watson, who was In charge of tbe work
when tbe wheel* werenwning smoothly.
This development reached a depth of
175 fast and opened op a wondetfut
bolyof ore which is authentically re
ported to show.fr> feet in thickness.
The company msde shipments which
.yielded 340 ounces ailver and 10 to 20
percent, lead. It is said thai the orr
is trowing heavier in lead aS deprh is
gained.
Last summer the compsny found Itself
in such straits thst it became necessary
to give *�� mortgage on the clsims. The
llaokof British Nottb America furnished
the monev. -The mortgage was later
transferred to Ross Thompson, of Ross
land. Work on the mine was almos*
entirely suspended. It was when mat
ters were in ths tangle tbst Frank
Watson twgan to work for the redemption of tbe mine. He began the arduous
task seven months agoand hss just completed It. The te ms of tbt desl are that
a new company is to be formed to be
known as tbe Arlington Mines, Limited,
wirh hcadqnarters, probably in Spoksne
Ihe cspitslisation is to be 1.00.000
shares and 750,000 shsres will go Into the
tressnrv. Tlie remsining 250.000 shsres
will be issued to the stockholders of tbe
old companv at tbe rate of one share for
every four held in the old corporation.
Tbe new compsny assum** tbe mortgage
snd has arranged to pay It snd sil other
outstanding debt* of the old company
within SO days. The Boston people take
up sufficient of the treasury stock to
plsce 150.010 st once in rhe treasury
of rhe companv and have guaranteed
ihal the same amount will be forthcoming later if needed to niske a paying
mine of the Arlington.
Them* terms have been agreed to by
the unanimous vore of rhe ato�� kholder*
of the old companv present st a recent
meeting where "tW.OOO spares of the 818,-
000 shsres issued were reptesenicd.
"Within 80 days," a stockholder is
reported as saying, "work will begin on
the Arlington with a large fores of men.
The development will lie upon a large
scale, with all the necessary machinery
and the plans of the company include
the early erection of a concentrator.
Prank Watson paid a visit to Victoria
lately and secured from the Provincial
Government *2,500 with which to com-
plete the road which the Government
started to build up the creek from Slocan
City to the mines. Work on this will
begin ss soon as spring opens up. Much
credit is due to Frank Watson for putting this'deal through in tbe face of discouragements. The company has been
so torn with internal troubles that no
reconciliation seemed possible Snd most
of us thought the Arlington was a dead
duck. But Watson saved the mine although it took seven months of scheming snd maneuvering and harmonising
to bring it about.''
It is rather a new thing for Boston
capital to take up silver and lead pio-
Sisitione. Copper investments are the
vorite* in the Massachusetts city. -*ttat
the profits which Slocan shippers pay
sre attracting attention of eastern capital
and Boston has made money enough in
mines to know that a venture of this
kind ui safe. Those who know the
Arlington say that tbe mine will be ship
pin* ore within six months sod should
U'gin to pay profits soon after.
S-OCAK   THK   RICHEST.
The Slocan is undoubtedly the richest
mining division in the Province, and
for investment pure aud simple, stocks
in the standard mines of this camp are
the safest investment that offer at present to sn intending purchaser. The
recent strikes in the Queen Bess, Vul
lure, Slocan Star, Reco. Treasure Vault
aud Noble Five prove that the ore
bodies in the Slocan have only begun to
show their richness and continuity, and
then* is not a property in this division,
which, with fairly intelligent treatment
can fall to become a dividend payer
There has been a stamp lat�� :y in'the
Dardanelles stock, but this was due
more to extraneoo* dealings among*!
the big* stockholders, than to the condition* of the mine itself, which at present
is nearer to being on a dividend paying
basis than for some time previously
Buyers cannot make a mistake if thev
purchase tbe Slocan stocks of those
properties which are held by strong
companies, or to be more explicit, hy
those companies whose largest stockholders until the mine give* them a
return In the shape of dividends. The
Ivanhoe, owned by the Minnesoto Silver
Mines Company, has so much ore in
sight that the owners have decided to
put up a mill and tramway, and this
property will soon be one of the big
ship'ier* of British Columbia. As it is
owned bv a ch��se corporation however,
the investing public will not have an
opportunity of profiting hy its richness

MORTON   PRKWBN   ON   SI-VKR.
Morton Frewen, the well-known London financier, speaking of the outlook
for silver, says in a recent note:
"Had it been possible to obtain from
Washington a proposal to re-open your
mints at 1 to 22 on condition that the
Indisn mint* were simoltsn?ously rlung

on condition that vou restored bi-metsl-
ism, we might under those conditions
have advanced an all important step on
the road to the complete restoration of
silver as a monev metal. But no support
could be obtained for any such proposal,
snd at the present moment silver is
drifting, and drifting dangerously. It is
a clear case thst it has lieen possible for
���he government of the United States for
some months |o have restored silver st
the rate of f 1 per ounce, but there was
no one to push it. It is the sin of the
century that it is aoV	
It is now against the law to thaw
dvnamite within 150 feet of the mouth
ol a tunnel. Some of the Slocan *mines
will have to thaw in balloons.

G. M. McDowell, who intends to erect
sampling works at Nelson, had a conference with leading officials of the C.P.R.
with regard to his request for a grant of
a portion of the C. P. R. right of way to
enable him to construct biff plant.   The
two parties came to an agreement by
which Mr. McDowell is given a 30 yean'
lease of a portion of tbe right of way on
condition that the buildings be begun
within  three  months   and i completed
within six.   The buildings, which will
be on the lake shore just inside the city
limits, will be constructed 22 feet from
the centre of the tract and will have 100
feet frontage with 50 feet of depth.   The
major part of the buildings will be on tbe
foreshore of the bike and will be built on
piles.   The* outermost piles will be 75
feet in length.   The site chosen is just
where the rights of way of the Nelson A
Fort Sheppard snd C. P. railways join,
and it is expected that the two lines will
be connected by a neutral switch. Until
this is effected tbe former road will get
access to tbe works by means of a trestle.
The necessary plana nave been drawn by
C. W. McArthur, formerly of Denver,
Col., and the machinerv has been ordered from the machine company of Quebec.

Montreal, March 14.���Application for
a new charter for the Payne Consolidated
Mining Company will be *orwarded to
Victoria to-morrow.   The directors  of
tbe reorganised company will be:   W.

Anaconda; James Rose, Senator Forget,
Wm. Hanson, Col. Fred Henshaw and
Clarence J. McCuaig, of Montreal.
It appears that the presidency of the
Payne will be offered to W. L. Hogue.
This afternoon Mr McCuaig received
a telegram stating that tbe shipments
from the Payne from Jan. 1 to March 14
reached 1,388 tons, which netted f52 per
ton, after deducting duty and charges for
freight aod treatment This amounts to
8125,000, or about $50,000 a month. Mr.
C. H. Hand, the chief manager, also
reports the showing in the different levels
to be of the most satisfactory natu*e,and
snch as to warrant the belief that Montreal and Toronto people now control tbe
richest property iu British Columbia.

Robbie had longed for a baby brother
and a.pair of white rabbits. The answer
to both wishes came on the same morning but it was not quite satisfactory, for
there were two baby brothers and only
one rabbit. Robbie was greatly disgusted at the mistake The next day

One of the San Francisco papers has
a correspondent at Juneau in the person
of Hal Hoffman In a recent article by
that gentleman he says that in retaliation of the Atlin alien bill presumably,
that Canadians will be driven out by
force from tbe Porcupine creek district.
This statement has caused a great deal
of adverse criticism here as well as in
other Canadian cities, and it is thought
that there is so justification for the
statement.
The great beef trust which sold meat
at Dawson for $1.50 per lb. last year is
now almost forgotten snd prices are
about as low as they are in Vancouver.
The poorest beef sells at 15 cents and
the best at 25 cents per lb. to the quarter. One thing that has forcedjdown the
prices is the order that all beef that is
not kept in refrigerators by May 1st
will be condemned and must be thrown
away. There are no refrigerators at
Dawson, and nonein course of construction, so that the prices will probably go
still lower.

���The Sketch.
GAMBLING   IN   CARIBOO.
High  Stake*  Flayed  For  In the   Karly
Sixties.
During' 1851-82,   when  each claim
about Richfield produced from 25 lbs. to
50 lbs. of gold daily, it wss a very lively
town.   The most popular games of tbe
time were "Faro,"������Monte," and "Draw
Poker."   The stakes played for sometimes ran up into thousands.   Woodward and Copeland's (aro game dealt
an open limit of $100 to high rollers,
who invariably played to win or lose
$10,000 at a sitting.   On one occasion a
gambler named Pete Liberty, having
lost his last dollar in a poker game,
'stood watching the players, when somebody dropped s few checks on the floor,
snd in picking them up left s splitter
(which is half the value of the regular
check) for the sweeper. This diminutive piece of ivory did not escape the
eagle eye of Pete Liberty, and not
many moments elapsed before he had
possession of it. The last turn was
about to be made with a five, nine, and
jack in the box. He placed the splitter
on the nine and called it nine jack.
The turn came just as he called it.

the next deal with, at the end of which
he was playing the limit, and before

only a splitter for a starter.
"Spanish Monte" was the favorite
game with tbe old-timers, who playeo
it in real Mexican stele, and ft was
amusing to hear old Californians sav
'���San Viejo" and "Tecolote Chiquita "
The amount that a plaver could bet was
$100 straight up$100"Viejo." practically
a $200 limit. The term ������Viejo" is usee)
to denote the suit of the opposite card
of the layout. For instance, if the
queen of hearts and the five of diamonds
is the layout, tbe five of hearts would
lie "Viejo " Thus, if a player staked
$100on the five of diamonds straight up
and $100"Viejo," and the five of heart*,
won, he would he paid $900; and if the
queen of diamonds won for the dealer
tne player lost $200. and any other suit
winning player or dealer would onlv
lose $100 straight np. If the player
won his straight up and "Viejo bets,
he was priveleged to put nn_the whole
sum of $400 on "Tecolote " This means
that the plaver bets that another five
will Appear before a queen.   Should he
win this also he is allowed toplay'the
whole amount on "Tecolote Chiquita,
which signifies that he bets the last nye
will appear before another quecu. In
this manner sacks of gold dust contaiu-
in* Dora $10u to $1,000 would chauge
hands as ofteu as a baseball in a league
Erne, until it was finally lost over the
nk and another took its place. Many
large bets bv professional sports have
been made, but the most money that
was ever put ud hv oue man at "Monte
was bv Johnny Wilson, who turned a
card for |0fi0 and won it.
Draw poker was a very popular game
in 1862, and many big games were plav-
ed in Jim Woodward's saloon, at Rich
field, when flour, bacon and beans sold
at $1 a pound, and everybody had
plenty of gold to pay for it Joe Cope-
rand,* Joe Stewart, Abbott, and Boh
Nobles were tbe big four that used to
play together, and it wss not unusual
for one of the party to get up from
the table $10,000 winner. In those
lively times the saloons kept open all
night, for no well-regulated poker game
was ever played until after lamp light,
which is no doubt for the purpose of
allowing the players to pull their hats
down over their eyes and appear to
look wise. Joe Stewart was considered
the best poker player in the countrv.
but luck did not seem to favor him. < m
one occasion he had ihree aces to ooen
the pot with, and he bet PJO. Copetand
raised him $50 on queens up. Abhort
raised Copeland $lu) on three jacks.
When it came to Noble's turn to play
he only had a pair of deuces, hut made
a bluff* to steal the pot by betting *r*��.
All hands called the bet, which made
the pot alwut $2.t����). Joe Stewart drew
two card*i and got a pair of kings:
Copeland drew one card and got a
queen; Abhort drew two cards and got
two tens; Noble** drew three card* ami
got two deuces. Then the betting commenced. Joe Stewart bet If**). Copeland saw his $500 and raised him ***�����
more. Abbott called Copeland's raise
of $500 and bet $1,0U0, Stewart called
A<>l��ott's raise, and Copeland laid hi*
hand down; when it came to Noble*
turn to play he raised Stewart fi.OOO,
Abbott stood the raise, which Stewart
also called. On the show down. Bob
Nobles, the lucky emigrant, of course,
won the pot with his four deuces.
This man in his short ��tay of nix months
in Richfield won and took away with
him over $80,000. which he, with poker
player's usual luck, divided up amorg
thei gamblers af San Francisco, return
ing a few months later to the scene of
bis successful operations dead broke.

He is certainly a layman who will
attempt to designate the most common
cause of failure in raining. There is no
such a thing. It may be due to a nuin
ber of causes. Of course tbe one re
quisite is that a good property must be
selected. This need not be a developed
mine, but one possessing tbe character
istics that eventually make one. No
amount of development work will make
a mine if the mineral is not placed than
by nature. Thus it is absolntelv necessary to be very careful in selecting the
property. Then again the wav those
who know virtually nothing stall shout
mining conduct its affairs are really re
sponsible tor their full share of the
recorded failure* in mining Many a
good mining property is rc*>nrt��d a
failure owing to incompetent manage
inent. Generally this mismanagement
takes place miles away from the real
base of operation. These directors are
comfortably ensconced in a well furnish
ed room in the rear of some prominent
banking institution and around the
directors'table, over which the affairs
of a nation are discussed These men
probably never saw'a mine, yet thev
are well versed in business matters of

In a **ow Camp.
In tbe early stages of a   mining
district there is  always one claim
which Is the  leader and which is
generally referred to in every mention ot the earn p.    Kvcry new strike
carries  rock just  like  the leader's
vein and Just as good.   Other prospects may develop Into more valuable
prota'rtles than the leader, but they
will  attract less attention and less
, will be said about them.   The glam-
[ or,of the excitement in the Hist days
of the boom will have warn off and
I the camp settled down to a steady,
matter-of-fact   development.     It  is
amusing to pick up a map of a new
mining district and see tho locations
that cluster a round the leader and
ran in every direction imaginable.
Apparently the leader has veins
without number, and so crooked in
course that they manage to tap other
claims in all directions for miles
around, for there are few owners
who do not lay claim to having the
leaders ledge. But such are the
ways of new mining camps, until
the whirligig of time dissipates the
fond dresms of the honest enthusiast
and exposes the schemes of tbe unscrupulous pretender. Bat it mast
not be forgotten thst half a dozen
working uiines will make a big

We are not cognisant of outside influence, neither would we allow it,
and consider it only just and fair, in
vindication of those ladies, to indig
nantly denv any desire on their part
to participate in the management of
our affairs. If people of dubious repu
tation wish to appear publicly in
society we imagine tbey should do
so under the patronage of some older
organization than the Sandon Minors' Union, or one where ladies bave
the management as their capabilities
of discernment in such cases are more
refined-than ours. But let them not
once conceive the idea that the miners are a rough and ready element
with no regard for the susceptibilities
of their friends, or amongst whom
people of shady morality can mingle
with impunity. The badge of the
Miners' Union has always been the
insignia of justice and integrity, and
it certainly is not our intention to
deviate from the principles of rectitude and honor established by our
predecessors.
Tbe reception committee hold themselves responsible for any and all
acts committed on tbe occasion men
tioned, and to them and them only
should complaints be addressed.
Respectfully Yours,
William Donahue.
