Jas. Hunter of Rossland and Charles
Slosson of Northport, heavy stockholders of the Hunter-Kendrick Company spent several days in town this
week making arrangements for the
new building which the company will
build in Sandon. They have secured
the lot adjoining Atherlon's store on
which they will pin up a handsome
tWO-story brick block, 40-foot front and
<>o feet deep. It will face the flume
and extend back to the C.P.R. reserve.
Plans are now being prepared by Rossland architects and as soon as these
arrive the construction will be commenced. The company intend to rush
the work so that they will occupy the
building by the 15th of September.
Fred Donaldson has leased the Bartlett hotel lot and will commence construction early next week. The building   will   be   one-story,  25 feet on the
pleted along the west side of the new-
street from the C. P. R. down nearly to
the power house. J. M. Harris is
building this sidewalk at his own expense in order lo make the property
accessible.

on. W. 11. Lilly's residence and office
and Craw lord and Cirimmett's stables
are being demolished. McMartin's barber shop and CTitle's bookstore have been
nuned down the street and the ground
will be clear in a couple of days for the
building mechanics.
Dick Orando opened the Ivanhoe
hotel on Thursdav evening. The new
building is belter one than the old and
when the fixtures and furnishings are
complete it will be one of the handsomest houses in ihe country.
Misses A. & M. McKinnon have
moved into their new building below
the Reco hotel aud will put in a heavy-
stock of millinery in a few days.
Mrs. F.gan's new hotel is go\ng up
with a rush. The frame work is up
three stories and the carpenters are
slapping on the siding at a 2:40 gait.
VVamsle) i\* Bennett's hotel is nearly
complete and they should be occupying
it within ten days.
Robt. Cunning has laid the foundations and started on the frame work
of his new hotel. It will extend 10 feet
onto the Hume street. "Bob" has
abandoned tlie idea of building out on
Reco Avenue and as he wants a 60-foot
building he is going to build out 10 feet

Harris' new hotel and office building
are both going ahead rapidly. The
hotel will not be opened on the 14th
as promised but the delay will not be
long.     The  sidewalk  has  been  corn-
O'Brien's Body Found.
(Nelson Tribune.)
The disappearance of Thomas O'Brien, late foreman at the Molly Gibson mine was explained yesterday
morning when his body was found
floating in the lake near the City wharf.
He was last seen on the second day the
Dominion Day demonstration near the
recreation grounds. At that time he
was heading for the waterfront, and
being in liquor, was advised to go
home. Apparently he proceeded to the
lake and blundered into the water. On
his clothes was found among other
articles a Bank of Halifax deposit book
showing a credit of $100.
SLOCAN MINES.
The 12th in Slocan.
The Battle of the Boyne was celebrated in Slocan City by the gathering
of Orangemen from all parts of the
Kootenav. About 100 excursionists
left on the 6:45 train form Sandon,
including the band and football club.
The football game was the only
athletic event of the day. Nelson and
Silverton lined up to play at 11 o'clock
but a kick against a New Denver man
playing with Silverton's team caused a
break up and the game did not come
off.
Sandon and Slocan learns played at
1 -30 and Sandon went under by 3 to o.
The junior teams of New Denver and
Slocan then took the field and New-
Denver scored a victory. After this
Nelson and Silverton played the best
game of the day, Silverton winning by
1 to o. According to the program the
(wo winners, Slocan and Silverton,
should have played off, but owing to
the kick about outside players the game
did not come olT. The $200 purse
hung up for the winners will probably
be devided between the four visiting
teams.
Mountain Con Group
W. W. Warner has taken a lease
and bond on the Mountain Con group
at ihe head of the South Fork of Carpenter creek. He is now packing up
supplies and will have a force of men
at work as soon as the camps can be
made ready. The ledge is a very fine
one, showing ore-eroppings on the
surface for nearly 1500 feet. Assays
running from $112 to $173-25 in aggregate values of silver and lead have
been secured from average samples of
the ore. Mr. Warner expects to be
shipping ore within 60 days.
Assessment work is being done on
the Red Prince in Jackson basin and
the Deloraine on Cody creek, the property of Pat Burns and Mackenzie &
Mann.
Jas. Anderson, of the Cold Hills Co.,
has two men at work on the Mario
claim, about live miles above Cody.
This company has a large number of
properties in the Duncan country but
this is their first venture in   the Slocan.
Development work done on the Maple
Leaf group of claims on Lemon creek
has shown a magnificent ledge with a
large body of gold quartz which gives
average assays of $19 to the ton. The
owners, Messrs. Wilson, Karr and
Taylor of Sandon and Curry of Calgary,
intend to take out ore this winter from
where the ledge has been tapped with
a 50-foot crosscut.
The Kerlin discovery which was
recently acquired by the Ruth company-
is turning out a record breaker. The
ore body has been opened up on the
Hope claim 125 feet below the place-
where Kerlin uncovered it and a carload
of clean ore was taken out without a
shot. If the ore-body comes up lo the
surface indications the Ruth has a
bigger proposition on the new strike
than they ever had in the old mine.
" Little Samtm*" in the Toils.
Sammy Lloyd accumulated a jag last
Monday morning which will cost him
his liberty for sixty days. Sammy had
dallied with the seductive game of
horse poker the night before and was
concious of a financial stringency. He
was in the Kootenay saloon when a
stranger came in and placed a ten dollar bill on the mahogany. While the
company was irrigating Sammy did the
presto change act and the tenner was
gone. The police were called in and
after a search the big X was found in
Sammy's clothes. Magistrate Lilly
gave him sixty days and Sam left in
company with Chief Stubbs on the noon
train for Nelson.

THK   MOVEMENT   OF   SII.VKK.
The movement of silver for the five
months ending May .41st has some
features which it is of interest to consider in connection with the present
appreciation in the price of the metal.
The United States exports for this
period amounted to a total value of
$-25,184,860, whereof ft,151,571 went
from San Francisco directly to China,
most of the balance going out through
New York to Great Britain. The im.
ports were valued at|18,793,.-352,leaving
the net exports at $11,891,014. In
quantity, therefore, we imported approximately 28,128,000 ounces���almost
all in the form of base bullion���and ex*
ported 42,227.000 ounces, of 19,099,000
ounces more than we received. Both
imports and exports show increases,
and the gain in value of the net exports
was $055,687, or 6.1 per cent.
If we turn to the London market,
which still gives us the most important
record of silver movement, we find that
the Board of Trade returns give the
following statement of imports of silver
into Great Britain for the five months:

Totals 06,108,868      ��ft,l78,041
There was a decrease of 18 per cent,
in the total imports, by far the larger
part of the loss being in the receipts
from European countries. Of these it
may be said that the trade is an exchange movement, which varies con
siderably from year to year, but on an
average of several years will nearly
balance, the imports and exports equaling each other. In this statement,however,we omit Russia, the trade iu silver
with that country being on a different
basis altogether. The marked point
this year was the large increase in imports from the United States This
amounted to 17.7 per cent.; while the
proportion of the total silver reaching
London from or through this country
rose from 62.2 to 86.8 |>er cent. The
falling off in receipts from Mexico and
South America may be, and probably is,
due to the larger proportion of theeilver
product sent here to be refined.
The exports of silver from Great
Britain for the five months wero as
follows:
t.,      -a       K���if is taken into consideration that it is
of this was in the exports to India,which
were larger this year by 82 per cent,
than last. This was due almost entirely
to the fact that the exigencies of the
famine have forced the Indian government to resume the coinage of rupees
and to buy large quantities of silver for
that purpose. This buying has ceased
for the present, but it is quite probable
that it will be resumed before long.
The gain in exports to China, while
less in actual amount than that to India,
was larger in proportion, reaching 88
per cent. A considerable part of the
shipments this year have been on
Russian account. If wo add to the
silver in the table above the shipments
from San Francisco, we find that China
has receive] this year about 17,927,000
ounces of silyer.of which we have record
above. In addition to this a large part
of the output of the Broken Hill mines
in New South Wales goes directly to
China, the proportion this year being
high, as is shown by the small Australian receipts in London. Estimating
these shipments we must conclude that
China absorbed during the five month*
from 27,000,000 to 28,000,000 ounces of
silver. If, as now seems piobable,
European armies are to operate in that
country on a large scale, there will be a
still larger demand for the silver in
which their expenses will have to be at
least partly paid.
This prospect and the Indian demand
have combined to cause the present i ise
in the price of silver, which has also
been helped by some London speculation in futures. A still further rise is
quite possible, and we may see silver at
a higher point than it has reached for
several years past    On the other hand
supplies are abundant aud there are
still reserves in existence which a high
price may bring upon the market at any
time.���The E & M. Journal.

Here *.ve find a decrease in the total
of ��916,028, or U.l per cent., in spite of
a large increase in exports to the East
The falling off was in the European
trade, which showed a reduction of 28.2
per cent. The greater part of this was
in exports to Russia, which fell from
��2,179,378 iu 1899 to ��403,237 this year,
a decrease of 81.5 per cent. This does
not mean that Russia has stopped buying silver, but the requirements of that
country for coinage were filled that
year, and the silver bought for use in
the East was shipped directly from
London.
Aside from the change just noted,
the prominent feature in this statement
is the large increase���46 2 per cent.���in
In his annual report Minister of Alines
Robertson says:���
"In reviewing the progress that has
been made in the mining industry of
the province during the past year, in
order to fully realize the advance that
has been made it is necessary to look -it
the question from several standpoint*
"The first, and probably the most important to the investing public, is the
increase that has been made in the
actual output of the mines.
���'This is shown in the preceding
tables, and is conclusive evidence- of our
actual growth being in a certain sense
a measure of the same
"These flguies speak for themselves,
and they speak the truth as far as they
go, but on certain points they are silent
What thev leave unsaid requires to he
said for them, and possibly they need
some interpretation and explanation
They say nothing of the preparations
for shipment, of the development work
done, nor of the shutting down of many
of those mines���for no cause; inherent to
themselves���which in previous years
have been our largest producers.
"The total mineral output of the province for the year 1899 amounts to $12,-
393,131, as against $10,906,861 for the
previous year, au Increase of 81,486,270,
equivalent, to an increase of 18�� per
cent, over last year.
"This is in itself a very creditable
showing, but is much more en  when  it
u-ade in spite of the fact that the tern
porarv shutting down of certain o   the
mines caused a deficit of $010,8.4 in
silver and lead values alone 'I here is
every reason to believe that but for this
shutting down we would have had from
these same mines an increase of $500,000
in place of the present deficit, which
would have brought our year's increase
to 12,868,169, or about 27 per cent, over
last year."

SANDON, B. C., JULY 14,  1900.
The last days of the Dominion parliament are
being well employed. The potlatch policy which is separating Canada from its money and tying up its public lands
is being carried forward with an enthusiasm that would
seem to suggest that the highest aim of parliamentary
representatives is to rob the people for the benefit of railroad promoters and land grabbers. In the railway subsidies
resolutions which were brought down on the 4th of July
the total sum of money voted as bonuses to railway corporations was $3,393,000. This is the price Canada pays
for the superlatively rotten railway service with which this
country is cursed.
In the big grab the favorites have not been overlooked.
For one hundred miles of prairie lath-track between Swan
River and Prince Albert, an extension of the Canadian
Northern, Bill Mackenzie and Dan Mann get $320,000
cash bonus. Besides this they get the statutory 640 acres
per mile and incidentally will hold up the municipalities and
townsite people for all they will stand. When it is remembered that the Canadian Northern is the sloppiest
kind of a second-hand, jack-leg jerk line and that the best
piece of track ever built in the North West the Soo Line
was completed for $7,000 a mile, Bill and Dan seem to
have a very easy game. The Canadian Pacific also works
in for a comfortable sum as subsidies for extending1 branch
lines, re-building bridges, etc. In fact any old bluff thai
can be called an extension or an improvement is sufficient
excuse at Ottawa for making an appropriation to the C. P. R.
But the smoothest swindle of the whole list seems to
have been accomplished by the Kaslo & Lardo-Duncan
Railway Company. For a line from Duncan Lake to
Trout Lake, 30 miles, the K. & L. D. gets 1*^96,000 bonus.
This company has already secured a provincial government
land grant covering practically all the timber, townsite and
agricultural land in the vicinity of the railway route, and
in building the line with public money this companv simply
improves its own property at the public expense. The
railroad which this company is to build is to run up the
Lardeau river to Trout Lake. There is the natural grade
of the river with no rock cuts of importance and except for
the expense of clearing the right of way the construction
will not be more costly than prairie road. Should the promoters follow the example of the Kaslo & Slocan and use
second-hand steel and rolling stock they will undoubtedly
be able to put their railroad into commission without further
outlay than the dominion subsidy and the proceeds from
the sale of the the provincial land grant. In other words
they get the railroad as a free gift.
As far as we have been able to gather from the eastern
papers, this $96,000, like the other subsidies, is given
without any real reservations whatever. There are certain
stipulations about the price to be charged for carrying the
mail and transporting troops, but these do not amount to
much. There is nothing in the reports that would lead
one to infer that the government retained any control of
the rates or that the company is expected to return any
portion of the money granted. It is also safe to infer that
there is no limit to the extent to  which   the promoters can
line to force down rates.    On the   K. & S. the ^ '
Probably]
rates are seven cents a mile and the  service is pro&
worst in   Canada.    The   freight   rates  are reo
regulate!
ari
according to what   the   service   is  worth  but accord]
what the traffic will stand.    The   road   is bonded for
will carry and there  are more   fat-salaried  officials 1
29-mile jerk line from Sandon to   Kaslo  than there
the whole Kootenay division of the Canadian Pacific
all of this, of course, the people pay.
Considering ihe ease with which these deals slide
the dominion and provincial houses, we fail toseewlfl
enterprising company should be without a railway
seems that the only formality necessary is to oil
charter and apply for a grant of land with money el
thrown in to furnish railway facilities that will maid
land valuable.
Just how long it will be before the people of d
wake up to see the absurdity of making free m
railroads to land-grabbing promoters is problemetica]
it is a safe bet that if the potlatch policy is continut
another decade the rising generation of Canadians will
to ante up to the land-owning railroad corporations or
off the earth. There will not be enough freelandlj
Canada to make a grave, and the countr) wiil lv so
the hole that it will not be able to get out in a brad
a half of centuries. In the meantime the politicals)
at Ottawa have a convenient means of raising a cam
fund and the gratters are acquiring some verv choice
way lines on advantageous terms.
Hon. Alex Vidal, a satellite from Sarnia who|
down a seat in the   senate   chamber, worn   on recon
other day   as being opposed to   restricting Chinese im|
gration because "il was neither Christian nor British."
Senator Vidal and   other venerable idiots in the Otf
senate were half as Christian or British as they woul
the world believe  thev would probably   savy that the j
cipal  objection   to Chinese   is that they are not and
will be "Christian   or   British."    Senator Vidal isaf|
ized fool   and he should  be shot over the dump of ob
into   the   high-pressure hell that   is prepared  tor roll
finics who   choke on a Canadian mosquito  but swall|
leprosy-laden Chinese caravan.
John Bucklev informs us that he is  misquoted oj
street question.     He   savs that   he is in   favor oi then
street   but   believes that it should be carried thru in pi
order and by   virtue of a public by-law.    That's whej
stand exactly, John.     Frame your by-law, submit itta|
rate-payers, and settle this street business right away.
Hume must be repaired in anv event  and   the extracoi
making the new street will not be great.    The mone)

The Paystreak is booming James V. Martin m

LIBERALS ORGANIZING.
Salmon  Arm   Liberal Association
Heard Prom.
The following has been  sent to the
Paystreak for publication :���
Salmon Arm, B. C, July 6.���Ata
meeting of the Salmon Arm Liberal Association the following resolutions were
passed unanimously :
"That in view of the approaching
federal elections ; That in the interests
of the Liberal party of Canada ; He it
resolved : That we, the Salmon Arm
Association are in favor of a convention
of delegates of this constituency to
nominate a candidate to contest this
constituency in the interests of tin-
Liberal party. And be it further resolved :
That this Association is in favor of
holding said convention in the Citv of
Revelstoke on or about the 15th day of
September, 1900. And it is also moved
that the secretary be notified to forward
a copy of this resolution to the secretaries of the several Liberal associations and to the press thruout this
riding.
THE FIRE BRIGADE.
Expected Rise in Silcer.
The financial editor of the London
Daily Mail says in a recent issue :
"Silver is once more becoming a live
market. It would even be lively if
there were silver enough to go round.
Business is restricted by absence of arrivals, and day by day the price is
marked up without fresh supplies.
The Americans, who now control production, are holding back in the natural
belief that the demand for the far east
is about to undergo a great development. Dealings in silver futures,
which had practically died out, are
being revived and the coming autumn
may witness a sharp revival of the
white metal." Every one in this country will hope that this prediction will
be fulfilled.      .
The Decelopment of Johannesburg
Before  the  discovery in   1884 of the
rich  deposits  near the  present  site of
Johannesburg  the entire district could
have been bought for $50,000.    It was
not until  1886 that the development of
the   Rand   was   methodically entered
upon.     A   few   years   afterward   Mr.
Hamilton  Smith, the  American expert
who examined the fields for the  Roth-
childs, estimated that the  Rand would
produce gold to tlie value of something
over  a  billion  of dollars,   and   would
yield  $50,000,000  annually.    In   1898
South  Africa  attained  first  place as a
gold-producing  region,   with an estimated  output of twenty-eight per cent.
of the world's total. Until reports of
operations were interruped by the war,
the yield of the Rand promised to be
greatly in excess of any former year.
When the war began more than 10,000
whites and 60,000 natives were employed in the Rand mines alone, and
Johannesburg had grown to be a city
containing nearly 18,000 buildings and
a population in excess of 100,000.
Meeting Called to  Reorganize.   A
Committee Appointed.
On call of the Mayor, a meeting of
the citizens wais held in the fire tent on
Wednesday evening for the purpose
of taking steps to reorganize the fire
brigade. The meeting was not by any
means representative as only a few ot
the business men and property holders
of the city were present.
Mayor Pitts took the chair and called
for an expression of opinion as to the
proper course to be followed in reorganizing. Remarks were heard
from Jas. Vallance, Chas. McLaughlin
and J. V. Martin in which they expressed their conviction that the scheme
of a fire hall in which eight or ten men
could sleep would be the most effective
means of keeping a sufficient number
of the brigade together ready to answer
a call. All agreed that clerks and
mechanics were better fitted to assume
the responsibilities of firemen than were
the business men.

Proprietor.
The Mayor called for nominations for
chief and J. V. Martin was named. Mr.
Harris rose to remark that in his idea
the proper system to follow was to
organize two or three brigades with
headquarters in different parts of the
town. He contended that property-
owners only were interested in the for
.nation of the tire brigade and believed
that the matter should be  left to them.
Upon the suggestion of the Mayor
the nomination for chief was withdrawn
and a committee was appointed with
instructions to take steps toward reorganization and to make recommendations to the council regarding the system to be followed to secure an eflicien1
service. The committee will report to
ihe council on Monday evening. The
committeemen are Wm. Walmsley, Jas.

BOUNDARY   VAMPS.
A correspondent ai Grand Forks as-
iei is that the Boundary ore shipments
to the Trail smelter now rung about
1,000 tons weekly.
The Gold Drop recently made a test
shipment of a car of ore to the Trail
smelter. Sup-. Easton says the returns
were all that he anticipated.
The ledge has been encountered in
(be Sallie at 185 feet, and an excellent
galena ore is being taken out of the
tunnel. The Sallie is owned by Robert
Wood, of Greenwood.
On the Mountain Chief, near Beaver-
ton.and owned by Dermody & Maloney,
a good ledge of gold-bearing quartz has
been uncovered. There has been
enough work done on this claim to
crown grant it.
R. Donegin last week finished working* on the Hope claim in Skylark camp.
The shaft is down 80 feet. The Hope
joins the Silver King on the north, and
has a ledge about B0 feet in width,
carrying copper-gold values.
At the B. C. mine, in Summit camp,
there are now about HO men employed,
Of which 1") are ore sorters. Up to date
nearly -UK*1 tons of ore have been shipped to the Trail smelter At present
shipping is at the rate of 60 tons daily,
the capacity of the present hoist.
During the pa-t week a rich strike
was made on the J. & R. claim, in
Wellington camp. A 6-foot ledge of
high grade ore, similar to that of the
Golden Crown nnd Winnipeg, was uncovered.   There are alao h number of
gold being accountable to a large extent. Blankets are used at times bo
valuable is the ore. The Cup ore is
averaging up all round about $130 in
silver, $18 in lead and $14 in gold to the
ton. It will thui be seen that the gold
values are increasing with depth. The
Cup can ship just as much ore as they
choose this winter. It would only be a
matter of increasing the working force.
The last strike on the Nettie L. is the
talk of the camp. In the south drift
the work of stoping and driving had
been carried on along what was always
believed to be the foot wall, with fairly
good results, until a short time ago
when the foreman noticed an intrusion
of quartz and ore on the wall. He
ordered a 2-foot hole to be drilled near
this outcrop and when it was shot a
body of fine ore was exposed. He immediately set men to work driving into
this body of ore with the result that at
present there is a showing of some ten
foot iu thickness, one-half of which is
clean, shipping ore, the balance being
fine concentrating material. When the
driving on the new strike is being made
the roof, walls and floor are in ore,
which is exceedingly high grade. This
new strike, as it develops, will have a
considerable influence on future operations for the reason that if what was
believed to be the foot wall turns out to
be the hanging wall of the main vein.
The lower tunnel, which is now in 8iK)
feet, will have to be driven '200 feet
further before it is under the new
strike

U. S.   COPPER   PRODUCTION.
email leads the extent of which has not
yet been ascertained. Pour men are
now at work oil the property doing
surface work.
George Vaughan came down from the
east fork nl the north fork on  Monday,
where he has been working on the Me
Kin ley claim, owned by Welcher and
McKinley. Tbe McKinley is about two
miles from Franklin camp. There is ���*,
12-foot ore body on the property, which
assays l.'*\ per cent, copper and $*J 50
gold. The ledge has heen stripped for
a distance of 150 feet On the foot wall
there is about 6 feet of galena. Assessment work was also done on the Hanna.
Bryan and Silver Queen.
LARDKAV   FLOAT.
Copper production in the United
States continues to show a fair increase,
the total output reported for the first
five months of the current year having
been 111,912 long tons, which is a gain
of 9,405 tons, or 9.2 per cent., over last
year. It is noticeable that only a small
part of this increase���2,665 tons���came
from the large mines which report to
the statistician, the other 6,740 tonB
coming from the "outside sources";
that is, the small mines which do not
report and the smelters which handle
ores having their chief values in gold,
silver,lead and metals other than copper
The increase in exports has been
much larger than that in production,
tbe total shipments reaching 73,643 long
tons for the five months. Included in
this, however, is some copper refined
from the Chile bars which were sent
over here for treatment several months
ago, as well as some Boleo copper refined here and some from Mount Lyell.
Making allowance for this, the exports
of copper from United States mines
have been very large, and amounted to
over 60 per cent, of the production. The
consumption of copper in Europe continues very large. The recent increase
in the exports is probably due *o the
fact that foreign manufacturers, who
had allowed their stocks to run very
low, have been forced to come into the
market for supplies.

taking over the property by the company. The force will be largely increased in a short time.
The Eclipse.
Allan & Corey bring encouraging reports from their property on Silver
Mountain above the California. They
have several good showings of ore and
the ledge exposed for several hundred
feet on the surface. Ore is showing in
the face of all their tunnels.
The Ledge Sampled.
The Ruby ledge was sampled last
week from the tunnel at the face of the
drift with very satisfactory results.
Every assay made from tho ledge matter gave gold returns, and the ore itself
showed an average value of over $20o
to the ton.
Wagon Road Needed.
There is great need for the wagon
road up Silver Mountain. The properties there are developing into shipping
mines rapidly and must soon have some
better means of transportation than a
pack trail. The delay is the fault of
the Government. The money should
be appropriated at once and work
started.
Rich Ore Showings.
Goat Mountain properties continue to
improve as work is pushed upon them.
The showings of rich gold-silver ore
there encountered are not dimmed by
the rich galena strikes that have been
made on Silver Mountain.
The Timet- Change.
Captain Connnnght, manager, and
.las. Carlyle, secretary, of the Lone Star
Mining* Company, operating above
Duncan City, were in Nelson last week.
They stated that the Lone Star is looking particularly well, and that if the
railroad facilities were at hand tne mine
could ship bH) tons per day.
The  Blue Jay  and  Mountain  View
are located on  tbe headwaters of  Mc
Donald creek, a tributary of the Duncan
river, and are owned by .las. Comerford.
He says that he has one of the largest
surface showings in tbe country. I be
ledge varies from 10 to 60 feet In width,
with a paystreak of silver-lead ore from
ti to '20 inches wide quite visible for at
least 2,000 feet. Tbe remainder of the
ledge matter would make a good concentrating proposition.
Twenty men are working still and
development is being vigorously prosecuted on the Cup. Ore is now being
sacked, which runs 30 cents a pound, or
$>00 to the ton, the increased value
A bit of early history was brought
vividly to the minds of several  pioneer
prospectors last week by the discovery
Oil Friday creek of what is known as
.faim-ison's Lost Mine    As far back as
lHS'i this mine was known to exist, it
being the first copper discovery made
in the Siinilkameeii     Old timers well
remember hearing Mr. .lameison tell of
his rich strike and of its location, but
those were the stirring days of placer
mining and the location was left to lie
in idleness for the coming progress of \
civilization.     On   his   deathbed   Mr.
���lameison described minutely its exact
location, at the same time pointing out
the fact that one  was liable to travel
over the spot   without discovering it.
Since that  time many attempts have
been made to find the mine, but all were
unavailing.   It was left for a party with
no knowledge of the country or of minerals to make the discovery.    Mrs. S.
Spencer, whose husband had charge of
the Royalty group of claims,  was the
lucky party,   and   it   happened   thus:
Mrs. Spencer, who is with her husband
on Friday creek,  was out looking for
berries, and while hunting them by an
old corral she  happened  to  notice a
peculiar   looking  formation   of   rock.
Prospector-like she proceeded to secure
a sample, and upon returning to camp
showed her find to her husband, who
immediately  pronounced it a very fine
specimen of copper ore.   As soon as he
could be proceeded to the spot and upon
looking the ground over realized that
indeed bis wife had made a rich find.
The rock is of a very rich grade of
copper, similar to the cropping on the
Sunset, and old timers say there is very
little doubt but what this is the lost
I mine, as its description coincides exactly
n | with that given by Mr. Jameison.
New Denver Ledpe.
Perhaps the  best   strike  since  the
F delity find was made last week by
Messrs.   Thompson   on   their   Silver
Mountain claims, situated south-west of
the Mountain Chief.   They have spent
many months prospecting the property
and have done a great amount of sluicing, but nothing of consequence was
unearthed until last Thursday, when
by mere chance Russ Thompson stumbled upon a very fine looking ledge.
This was exploited further with the result that one of the finest surface showings of galena ore ever shown in the
camp was uncovered.   It is from 6 to
18  inches  across  and chunks of ore
weighing hundreds of pounds can be
taken out with a pick.   This property
is owned entirely by Amos Thompson
and sons.   Three claims are embraced
in the group, the Sinfi, Atwood and
World.   They are situated close to the
Mountain Chief, and the lead found is
believed to be what is known as the
Mountain   Chief  lead.    Its  course is
north-east with a southern dip, and is
traceable for several hundred feet across
the properties.
This gives to New Denver another
prospective shipper, and goes further
to prove the existence of numerous rich
ore bodies on Silver Mountain.
The Hartney.
The most encouraging reports are
brought down from the Hartney. The
lower tunnel, which taps the ledge at. a
depth of 400 feet, has come into the ore
shoot encountered in all the workings
above. The ore shoot was encountered
only a few days ago and is proving
better as work proceeds on it. It is
steel galena, and there is plenty of it.
Force Reduced.
The force on the Marion has been
temporarily i educed, pending the settlement   of business in connection with
About fifteen years ago in a small
Kentucky village there occurred in the
negro Baptist church a series of fights.
The belligerent brethern were generally
content to inflict such injuries as could
be done with their fists, but more than
once razors and pistols were used with
dire effect.
At this time the writer, then a child,
happening on a Saturday to be in a
neighbor's kitchen, overheard the house-

"Aunt Jane, is you gwine to de church

�����.. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C., JULY >4
Hnmenal.
Two very pretty weddings have recently taken place at the residence of
Mr. Kllis Haskett, Three Forks. On
the 2nd inst. Mr. Lawrence O'Neill and
Miss Mary A. Lees were joined in
matrimony and on Thursday the 12th
inst. Miss Nancy Lees was married to
Mr. Samuel Bradley. Rev. A. M.
Sanford was the officiating clergyman
on both occasions being assisted on the
12th  by Rev. J.  A.   Ferguson.   The
house was very tastefully arranged for
the weddings and no pains were spared
10 make the events enjoyable to the
large number of invited guests.
A noteworthy feature was the fact
that very many of those interested
formerly lived across the Atlantic. The
Misses Lees were from Oldham, Lancashire, Mr. Bradley from Yorkshire
���ind Mr. O'Neil from Portadown, Ireland. Mr. and Mrs. Haskett, in whose
home the weddings took place, and Mr.
Harrop, who gave away both of the
brides, are from Manchester. Many ol
the guests also were at one time residents of the Old Country.
St. Eugene Mill a Record Breaker
(Moyie Leader)
Strange as it may seem it is a fact
nevertheless that the St. Eugene concentrator is turning out more concentrates daily than any mill in the Slocan
or even in the Cceur d'Aleiie country in
Idaho. It is simply a marvel and an
HStonisher to its owners. Of course the
quality of the ore has much to do with
this as the per ceiitage of waste is very
small, but the mill itself is a record-
breaker just the same. During the
month of June the amount of ore run
thru the mill reached nearly 9000 tons
and the amount of concentrates turned
out reached 1938 tons. It is said that
when the new addition is finished the
mill will be easily   400   tons   per   day.
There are now 242 men employed in
the St. Eugene mine.
