rhe negotiation for a siu- for the

)nths were Completed this week when
J. Mickey purchased (lie Nightlmwk
literal claim from  Geo. Alexander for
Minnesota Silver Company,    Sur-
rights  lo ihe  ground  have  Ken
lured from the K. & S.
M'lie site for ihe Ivanhoe concentrator
im ideal one on which to build a mill.
1i^   within a few   hundred   feel of the
\   limits, is close 10 the   line of both
C. I*. K. and  the K. & S., is at the
influence of two creeks, and the lay of
land is such that very little grading
'    be    necessary.      Hie    situation   is
icrilarlv fortunate for the Minnesota
jmpanv   as it places them   directly in
le with   the  Sunshine and   Yakima,
which iheir  Stockholders are largely
ie rested.
The .plans lor the mill provide tor a
KlCture 50x96 feet. It is to be built
the most approved plant-* will be

rilitate cheap concentration, and no
"tense will lv spared to make it what
nodern mill should be.
From   the  crushed ore
goes   through a   pair  id'

14x30 mils,
to Ihe lop of
from which it is elevated
the mill and is lead to the trommel
screen and onto the Hartz jig 26x44
inch screen with 4!* inch stroke. This
)\g is to sort the large nuggets of clean
ore which do not need further handling.
This jig is the largest jig used in B. C.
and in fact all the jigs are much larger
I ban what have formerly been used in
handling this class of ore. From the
big HartZ jig the ore is handled again
to another 14x30 roll which crushes
finer than before and il is again conducted back to jig No 2. From there
il goes back to the big high speed rolls
6x42. which will crush il as fine as
powder. Elevated again, it is run
through Ihe hydraulic classifier which
sorts it by specific gravity into eight
different classes. From there the ore
is ready for its last process of separation
from the quartz and gangue by the six
other line screen jigs. From these jigs
the ore is treated by eight Wolfley
tables. These are considered the most
modern   and   complete   appliances   in
  concentrating  and by this  process  the
To follow the course of the   ore from | lead, /ine and   iron can each   be drawn

it passes  by automatic   fenders   to   thence to the cars and starts on its long
big   Blake crusher, 10x20, where it j trip   to the   smelters, leaving   the corn-

11 might be worth '��� tioning
1st here   that to this if treat-
ctean lead ore wij rentrat-
can be traced   ti'" loss in
concentrators of iins v..     The
locan   ore   is  too   rich   to  be easily
tndled   in   concentrators   and   there
always an   unavoidable  loss  in the
irnes when the ore is pulverised.
From this crushed ore an   automatic
rerstrong  sampler will take samples
jail the ore handled so  that an exact
prd of Ihe ore values  contained can
kept at all  times and if any   values
lost the defect   can be   located  im-
pleted and the mill and tram in running
order by early fall.
The Minnesota Silver company will
have invested, when the mill iscompleted,
$300,000. This is all a cash outlay
which has extended over a period of six
years, and during all this time the company has taken out no ore except what
came out in development and has
shipped only a few cars, taking as yet
practically no return for their large
^outlay. When the tram and mill start
to run the whole amount of their investment will be returned to the company within a few weeks and the Ivanhoe will very quickly becomj known
as one of the heaviest producers in
British Columbia.
At a later date we hope to give a
comprehensive write-up of the mine,
which will be interesting literature lo
all who have followed the course of
mining development in the Slocan.
Mr. P. J. Hickey, who is superintendent of the Ivanhoe and under whose
management the mine has been developed from the prospect stage to a property valued up in the millions, is undertaking to personally surprise the work
of construction. His large experience
in milling is a sufficient guarantee that
his management of the mill will be
equally as successful as his management of the mine.

Ihe clean ' A 72-inch Pelton wheel will furnish the
g except I power.
through I The tramway will be 8,500 feet long.
The first 4,000 feet will have a drop
of only 400 feet the lower end drops
2,200 feet, making 2,600 feet of a drop
between the mine and the mill, with no
long spans. The tramway will be
entirely automatic, only one man at the
head end beig required to handle it.
It will have a capacity of 150 tons in
10 hours. It is a little early yet to
state just what make the tram will be,
altho the management has this point
almost decided upon.
A gang of graders were put to work
clearing off the site preparatory to
commencing grading, and as soon as
possible mechnics will be put on and
framing   commenced.     The  manage*

the eastern mind is somewhat hazy on
mining matters yet but they are learning fast.
Arthur R. Browne, agent for the
Manchester Smelting Corporation, died
a few days ago at Reigate, Surrey,
England. Browne took options on a
number of properties in the Slocan
bearing high zinc values and left Kaslo
for England a few weeks ago for the
purpose of completing important negotiations concerning the same. He was
in good health then. Browne was a
son of Lord Richard Browne and a
nephew of the marquis of Sligo. He
was also a member of the Royal Geographical Society and of the American
Institute of Mining Engineers.

who are not troubled with heart disease
and want to have a hot time ia a hot
town can pull their freight for Silverton
on the 24th of May and wade and
wallow and luxuriate in the whirling,

After the Rambler-Cariboo
A Kaslo dispatch to the Tribune says:
It is reported that big capitalists are
figuring on buying a controlling interest
in the Rambler-Cariboo. Within the
past few days several mining experts
have examined the property. At the
mine itself they have stopped sorting
ore until the deal goes through. The
principal owners of the mine are Cooley
of Colfax, Washington, and banking
interests there; J. B. McArthur of Rossland and Maclean Brothers of Palouse.
Who Will be Recorder?
Now that John Keen has resigned
here will be a general scramble among
Bpotitical heelers for the office of Mining
^Recorder for the Ainsworth division.
**' John Keen held the four-fold office of
���assessor, collector, recorder and registrar of the county court, and, whatever
��� may be said of him politically, was a
���capable official. The duties are oner-
jous and the office is   not   such as could
Laurier, the Federal Czar.
[Toronto Telegram.)
The danger of having provincial governments in sympathy with the government at Ottawa was never so clearly
expressed as in the letter wherein
Wilfred Laurier attempts to lay down
the law to Hon Joseph Martin in these
words :
"If party lines are to be maintained I will expect that the policy
of the federal government be respected."
These words from Wilfred Laurier
simply mean that the government of a
province is to respect, not the interests
and desires of the people of that province, but "the policy of the federal government."
Respect must take the form of subserviency, or it is not acceptable' to
Wilfred Laurier. The tribute which he
demands is the tribute which the people
of Manitoba would not pay. It is the
tribute which the people of Ontario
should refuse to pay.
It is as truly the public duty of a
federal government to respect the
rights and interests of a province as it
is the duty of a provincial government
"to respect the policy of the federal

SANDON, B..C, APRIL 28, 1900.
"Lost! Lost! Abandoned on the raging sea of politics!
Thrown over the dump of oblivion like a crummy shirt!
Overlooked like a white check before the cards are drawn !
Derelict within the swirling, eddying engulfing embrace of
the whirlpool of despair ! Oh, why am I treated thus ?
Why do they forsake me ? Have I not done their dirtiest
work at every turn of the wagon-road of corruption ? Has
my hand been idle or my pen been still? I, who smeared
the honest working-man with the polluted ink of calumy !
That I should be turned out and my pay stopped like a
scab dago ! Can this be? Do I dream ? Can it really be
that I am not the guiding light of the Association party ?
That I have been used ; used as a beast of burden and
abandoned like a.sick horse on a sun-burnt prairie ? Oh,
this is too much ! Where is that nomination ? Where,
oh where are the fond hopes I harbored within my soul ?
Where are the glittering golden guineas that were to be
mine? Vanished, alas, where the woodbine twineth !
Gone glimmering beyond the horizon of hope ; gone to
join the dago and the Finn. Alas, had I but served the
miners half as well as I have served the Association they
would not have thrown me down like this. The wav of
the transgressor is hard, and the path of the paid speiler is
beset with the thorns and devil clubs of jagged-edged disappointment and saw-toothed opprobrium."
John Houston is out as a candidate in the Nelson
riding. That he is running as an independent need hardly
be remarked the editor of the Tribune could not be anv-
thing but independent. He will be opposed to the last
ditch by the Association crowd, the church people and all
who value class privilege above public welfare, but the
people will recognize their own interests and remember
their friends.
It is to such men as Houston that the Kootenav owes
its greatness. With a fearless nature, a combatative disposition and and a tenacity of purpose which could lead
only to success, he has come to the front by sheer force of
character, and the opposition he has encountered has
served to make him stronger in the public  mind.
A hater of shams, a despiser of pretense and a veritable
iconoclast toward the conventionalities of the artificial in
society and the formal in religion, he has made undying
enemies among many whose friendship would encumber
any public man, and has made unswerving friends among
the class of men whose enmity would kill the aspirations of
a shallow seeker for public office.
John Houston is a man for the people, and the worst
imputation against his public character is that he is socialistic and undiplomatic. While his socialistic tendencies
are evidenced by a high regard for the public interests and
his Ii^ck, of diplopiacy is the outcome of impatience with the
methods of-putilic enemies, these imputations against his
public character become recommendations for his public

Co-ooerative factories in Great Britain last year made profits aggregating

with suspicion, as decoys of the wage-

opponents of the advanced labor movement. That was a day's work for
The social unrest, as evidenced by
the numerous strikes and labor troubles
ill the various parts of the L'nited States
is simply appaling. One day last
week one of the western daily newspapers published in one column news
of labor troubles from fourteen different
localities within its telegraphic range.
The casual reader scarcely knows how
general this unrest among working-
men is until he finds a long list of them
grouped in a newspaper. It is customer)' in daily newspapers to group
dispatches relating to some general
(heme, but with labor troubles il is
different, iu those cases the practise
is to scatter the, dispatches or sandwich
them among the patent medicine ad-
v ortisments so that the ordinary reader
does not notice them. But much as
the truth is hidden the facts remain,
and the   general   unrest  will not down.
Since Governor Stunenberg, of Idaho,
has finished his testimony before the
investigating concerning the bull pen
and the suspension of the writ of
habeas corpus,   the   republican   papers
are trying to show how the whole
responsibility lay on Stunenbergsshoulders he had admitted il and he is a
democrat, hence thai exonerates the
republicans entirely ! And llie democrats come back with the statement
that it was the republican national administration thai seat soldiers, hence it
was their fault ! All this is done to
hide the cnorinonity of the crime com-
mttteed against free American citizens
in Idaho by the party in power. Somebody is responsible for the maltreatment
of those miners, and to attempt to shitt
the responsibility in no way cures the
main fact, which is that the machinery
of government in the stale of Idaho is
rotten from the ground up.

is a   woeful   amount   of   misdirected
energy   and   virtue   expended   iu the
cause of so-called plain  living    Plain
living  is   not   scientific   living,    (hie
man's meat is only too often another
man's   poison,   and   occupations   and
habits   must   be   considered   in   diet.

"A woman should study her own
organization, till she has learned what
foods she can best assimilate, and feed
herself into a state of physical beauty.
She can be just as active at 05 as at 25,
if she lives right. She must acquire
the cunning and gentle art of cultivating herself and make it such a habit
that it will bo as natural as breathing.
She makes or mars her complexion by
the food she eats. The best food for a
beautiful complexion is that which is
most readily assimilated. She will
avoid over-feeding and equally   shun
the other extreme of not taking sufficient nourishment.
"As a rule, Americans do not take
enough liquid food. Two quarts daily
are needed. The salad, also, is often
wanting on the American table. A
tomato and lettuce salad with mayonnaise dressing is an agreeable way of
taking calomel and by which you receive all the benefits and none of the
harm of that powerful drug. Spinach
contains salts of potassium, iron and
other things good for the complexion.
Tea and coffee are valuable stimulants
when used in moderation. In summer
the fruit phosphates are full of medicinal
value, especially the wild cherry. Herb
drinks seem to be the fillip that Nature
needs and have no baneful effects.
Most people should use fruit in greater
abundance. The antiseptic properties
of the pineapple are not half appreciated It affects the skin most beneficially
and is said to banish moth patches. A
diet of fresh rare beef and oranges with
coarse grains in small quantity has been
known to work positive transformation
in a very short time. The beauty of a
famous French woman was attributed
to the fact that oranares formed the
principal part of her food and she was
credited with eating three dozen a day.
The orange possesses extraordinary
virtues especially in its action on the
liver and has a most beneficent influence
upon the whole system."
