F. C. Moore,' formerly book-keeper
for the Ruth- mines, was in Three
Forks for a few days this week. He
has been making -his headquarters in

days. He has secured a responsible
position with one of the big Rand
mining companies.
The C. P. R. is tilling in the bridges
along tlie Columbia & Keotenay from
Slocan to Nelson. There are thirty-
six bridges in all to fill up, nine having
already been completed by the steam
shovel which has been working for the
past two weeks.. It is the intention of
the company.to take oqt all the bridges,
putting culverts in their pi ices.
When tho Good-enough block was
being built s^.me three years ago, the
workmen who excavated for the foundation found a quartz ledge which was
thot lo be the Argo lead. The vein
was not opened'up at the time, but J.
M. Harris- decided Ho uncover it and
has men at Work now clearing away
the debris which -was* left after the lire.
If the Jedgc promises well when exposed il will be developed further.
Sailor Jack has gone, Sandon bemoans his loss, . Hut ��the paternal instincts of Chief Slubhs did not allow
him to remain in our midst. Sandon
is too tough for such innocence as Jack
and with tears in his eyes and a tremelo
in his sibilianl voice he bade good-bye
to the boys on Wednes and started ofl
for the sanctified and soul-saving city
where the temptations of Sunday football would not be forever theatening to
pervert his early training and defile his
purity of soul.
Andrew Grierson went to Kaslo on
Tuesdav afternoon. In the stilly and
sepulchral hours of<Tuesday* night he
borrowed a halter:" Within an hour a
horse got its head into ihe halter, tie-
fore morning there was a saddle on the
horse, and bv Wednesday evening
\ndv was back in Sandon with the outfit. ' Had Andy's abilities been properly
recognized Strathcona's gang could
have been spared the inconvenience ot
a shortage of horses by taking him
along.
THE BUILDING BOOM.
DUNSMUIR WILL DIG.
Rush Still Continues. Town Springing up like Magic. No Fire
Protection yet. What the City
Council can do.
The rush of the building boom still
continues and the rebuilding of Sandon
is going ahead with a rush that is surprising even to Sandon people themselves. There is hardly a business institution that was represented before
the fire that is not now making an
effort to rebuild. Rapid progress is
being made on the New Reco, The
Filbert and Harris' office block. Robt.
Cunning is just getting fairly down to
business and construction will be rushing on the Sandon in few days. Neil
Mclnnis has the work in hand and no
time will be lost. Dick Orando has
done a good stroke of business on the
Ivanhoe this week and the Miners'
hotel will soon be ready for the finishing touches. Every building that has
been commenced is laid out in conformity with the lines of the new street
down the flume and there is no doubt
that this will be the street. This may
not be flattering to the council as that
body decided in favor of Reco Avenue,
but it is in the best interests of the city
just the same.
. The only important real estate deal this
week was for the lot formerly occupied by
Tara's hall. This piece of ground has
been acquired for $500 for a catholic
church. There is a rumor that P.
Burns and Hunter Bros, intend to
move across the street so as (0 be on
the shady side. Both companies intend
building handsome brick blocks.
At present there is little or no fire
protection. There is not sufficient hose
to do efficient work in the case of fire and
the brigade and apparatus is generally
out of commission. Here is a bona fide
opening for the relief committee.
If the provincial government is true
to its promises the city will have $5,000
with which to repair the streets and
flume. It is time for the council to
reconsider the resolution in favor ot
Reco avenue and to take such action
as will make the flume street a success. With $5,000 at its disposal the
council should be able to overcome
every obstacle in the way of the new-
street.
When Messrs. Pitts, Lilly and Grimmett went to Victoria they did so with
the intention of bringing to the attention of the new Government Sandon's
financial condition and the immediate
necessity of a reconstruction of public
works. W. H. Lilly look the school
matter in hand and interviewed the
superintendent of education and members of the executive. Prentice, minister
of education, was unfortunately not in
Victoria at the time, but the other
ministers and superintendent Robertson
gave assurances that $2,000 would be
provided for the construction of a new
school. The building will be put up
on the old site and will probably be a
two story alfair with better accomodations than the old one. Contracts will
be let shortly and the building will
be ready for the opening of the fall
term.
Regarding the city's affairs, the three
delegates interviewed Messrs.' Turner
and Huberts, who gave them assurances
that something would be done. They
were not able to see Dunsmuir but left
a communication for him. Yesterday
Mayor Pitts received the following
communication from Dunsmuir on the
niatter;
Victoria, June 27, J90o.;.
H. H. Pitts, V.sq., Ma you,
Sandon, B. C.
Sir, Your letter of the 25th of June,
dated at Victoria and signed by yourself and Messrs. Grimmett and Lilly on
behalf of the city council at Sandon,
was duly received and laid before the
executive for consideration. 1 have the
honor to inform you that in consequencc
of your representations the government
is favorably disposed towards, placing
on the forthcoming estimates the sum
of 5,000 for tho purpose referred to.
1 have the honor to be, Sir,
Your obedient servant,
James Di-nsmimm.
A BusinesaS Change.
Main Bros completed a deal this week
by which they take over the wholesale
liquor business formerly conducted by
Kdwin Comings and lately by James
Shannon, of the Slocan hotel, Kaslo.
J. G. Main will move to Kaslo to
handle the Kaslo end of the business
and G. N. Main will remain in Sandon.
With the combined stocks Main Bros,
carry about the largest stock of liquors
in the Kootenav country.
Here it Is.
The   Nelson   Tribune   of

At a meeting of the Relief Committee
Thursday tenders were opened for the
construction of the double plank road-,
way up Sunnyside hill. The, tenders
were as follows: L. Doolan $550; E.
A. Cameron $000; Karr & and Wilson
$700; A. Cawley $800. The contract
was awarded to Ef. A. Cameron, work
to be completed in 30 days, in accordance with the plans and specifications
prepared by Mr. Balmain.
The tender of L. Doolan, the lowest,
was not according to the plans. The
roadway from the foot of the hill will
be 320 feet long and 10 feet wide over
all, allowing 3 feet for sidewalk. The
plans call for a trestle work solidly
constructed.
Late last week Mike Kerlin closed
negotiations with the Ruth Mines for
the purchase of his Sunrise claim, in
prospecting which he recently found a
large body of rich ore. It is understood
that the price is $25,000 and that the
terms are 10 per cent, down and the
balance in payments spreading over 60
days. Alex W.addel who is now in the
Boundary, owns a half interest and will,
share with Kerlin in his good fortune.
They still hold the Mascot claim,

NOT   WORK,   HUT   WORRY.
It Is not the work, but the worry,
That wrinkles the smooth, fair face.
That lilends grey hairs with the dusky,
Anil rods the form of its (trace:
That dims the lustre and sparkle
Of eyes that were once so bright,
But now are heavy and troubled,
With a weary, despondent life.
It Is not the work, but the worry.
That drives all sleep away.
As we toss and turn and wonder
About the cares of the day.
Do we think of the hands' hard labor
Or the steps of the tired feet V
Ah! no, but we plan and ponder
Mow to make both ends meet.
It Is not the work, but the worry,
That makes us sober and snd.
That makes us narrow and sordid,
When we should be cheery and glad,
There's a shadow before the sunlight,
And ever a cloud in the blue,
The scent of the roses is tainted,
The notes of the song are untrue.
It Is not the work, but the worry,
That makes the world grow old,
That numbers the years of its children
Ere half their story is told:
That weakens their faith in heaven
Aud the wisdom of God's great plan.
Ah! 'tis not the work, but the worry.
That breaks the heart of man.
���Inez May Felt, in Soinmervill. Journal
MINING   IN   SOUTH   AFRICA.
The cost of the war in South Africa
has been enormous, and the mines of
the region will doubtless have to bear
the brunt of the burden thus imposed
on the British government. For this
reason some people are disposed to take
a gloomv view of tbe immediate out-
look for the mine owners. It should be
remembered, however, that there are
offsetting items in the account of a most
important and favorable nature. A
very heavy annual tax by the new
authorities, which would be certain and
direct at all events, might easily be far
less troublesome than the mass of taxation, direct, indirect, open, and thinly
[isguised,   hitherto   imposed   by  the
��ers.   Wm  Dinwiddie, now in South
frica for Harper's Weekly, draws up
a formidable indictment against the
Transvaal government in this respect.
President Kruger and his followers,
he says, have established a system of
government concessions which surpass,
if possible, anything in Spain's colonial
possessions as gigantic opportunities
for official steals and rake offs. These
are fanned out to individuals, under
the specious plea of promoting the industries of the country. One man has
an exclusive government concession for
the manufacture of sweets and candies,
another controls the candle market,and
so on, through all the small trades.
Why, a trust or a combine would blush
at the profits these men rake in by
means of their absolute power to control
the sellin-.'* price of certain commodities.
The railroad is a royal concession,
which pays dividends, it is said, of
something like two hundred per cent
each year. The selling of dynamite is
another, and this concession and that of
the railroad have been extremely, oppressive to the mine owner. Dynamite,
which can be. delivered at the mines for
30 cents for oO pounds, costs the mine
owner 85 cents. The granting of these
concessions was practically in the hands
of President Kruger, and it has been
carried to such length now that it is an
open, festering sore in the Transvaal,
where glaring scandal after scandal has
been exposed
Another evil has been the "tout labor j
system." No mine owner to-day can
secure labor without first ostensibly
dealing with a chief of a black tribe,
who agrees to furnish so many laborers
for the mines at a bonus of from S'��0 to
$80 per head, the rate of wage contracted for beintz 75 cents a day, or three or
four times as much as that paid by the
Boers anywhere in the veldt. The
money is not paid to the black chief,
however, but to a Boer go-between,and
no questions are asked.
Again, the selling of liquor to the
natives has been a constant and serious
drawback to every Uitlandet who employs laborers. It is against the law to
sell liquor to natives, and yet every
mine owner estimates that 20 per cent
of his high-paid black laborers are
totally incapacitated for work during
two days of the week by drunkenness.
Appeals to Pretoria have been in vain,
and as the Secret Service men are the
principal agents of the concessioner of
liquor, it follows that no arrests are
made for illicit selling of intoxicants.
Once more, these mine owners estimate that 5 per cent of their total output of gold is stolen, in the shape of
amalgam and refined gold. It has been
practically impossible to secure conviction of thieves, even when taken red-
handed in robbery, becr.use, as much
evidence goes to prove, the Secret Service Department of the government, on
which millions have been expended
annually during the last few years, is
the active agen'. to whom the gold is
sold,while high officials are the principal
bankers of the ill gotten, but well-protected, gains.
It is no wonder that the mine owner
kicks against these outrages, growing
heavier every year. He pays heavy
land taxes, taxes on improvements, income taxes, taxes on output, and poll
taxes. He pays perfectly frightful
prices for everything ho wears and eats.
His railroad expenses, lor freight and
personal travel, are the highest in the
world The decoration and furniture
of his house are secured at abnormal
prices. In fact, to exist and continue
these profitable mining industries, he
has silently permitted himself to 1.
robbed, right and left, for years, know
ing that he was furnishing practical I v
the entire revenue of the country, ami
building up the fortune of every burgher
who eame inside tbe charmed official
ciide���the golden ring of Kruger. Yet.
with all rhis, he was denied the right of
any representation or voice in the government. If he had had a say in the
administration, it would have meant
the death-blow to many corrupt practices. The old President knows this,
and is struggling now, in a last grand
tight, to keep Kngland out, the. l'it-
landers in his control, and the wizard's
hen that lays the golden eggs in his
clutches
The floor farmer contributes hardly
a thing to the treasuiy of his govern*
ment; the laws have all heen framed so
that he shall ������ever bear the burdens of
taxation, ard thereby become disgruntled with the nation's guiding hand He
may even (if hard np) borrow monev
from the government on his land estate
(yvhic-h consists, usually, of from 10,000
to It 1,000 at.res of unfertile, arid land
menta. With his slovenly habits of
mind and body, it is no wonder that he
is content with this government and
believes implicity all that Oom  Paul
tells him.
Not a cent of money could be raised
by the municipal authorities of Johannesburg, for public purposes, without
the consent of the government at Pretoria; nor a city ordinance or local law
could be passed without authorization
from this same power. In other words,
Johannesburg, the centre of wealth, of
culture, of population, the headquarters
of the (Jitlatider in the Transvaal, was
absolutely as much under the thumb of
President Kruger and his followers as
is the infant in the arms of its mother.
The Uitlander is not the kind of offspring to take kindly to too much wet
nursing, nor to care for a mother with
pins in her clothes.
The development of the mining industry   ol the Transvaal  has been a
marvellous   growth,   and   the  figures
used in expressing the money invested
stagger the mind.   It costs from two to
eight millions of dollars to put down
the preliminary shaft of several thousand feet to the gold-bearing reef and to
erect   the  machinery     Many  of  ihe
mines have eaten up twenty millions
before   they  have  returned a cent  of
profit.   The net returns,  however, on
this   immense capitalization are from
ten to twenty  per cent,  some having
reached   still   higher   figures.     When
thev, the mine owners, talk of monthly
outputs  of  4HO.O0C   ounces  of  g(��ll���
$.000,000 and over���the poor man with
a little change in his pocket sadly jingles
it together and wishes be were rich    In
these mines the average pay for a white
man is 85 a  day; chemists, engineers
and   other   professional    men    receive
salaries all  the  way from I10.0K) to
$"0,001 per annum; but they nil nirret*
that the cost of living is  triple  thai   nl
tbe high-priced  mining regions of  the
United States.    It would certainly seem
that such n stupendous enterprise,which
employs a hundred  thousand native-.
and has over fifty thousand -vile awake
white men engaged  in  it, deserves to
survive ami  linurish  in  this fur iwav
land, under a decent system of government, and with some nf the privileges
we enjoy in our own land, particularly
when we rem em her thai a huge proportion of these iifii are our cleverest ami

The God of the Old Testament rewards and punishes visibly and signally
here: he terrifies often by his anger; he
reforms sometimes. The God of the
New Testament makes little difference
here between those whom he approves
and those be disapproves; so little that
he is charged with injustice for it; bul
he lies in wait to punish the latter hereafter with unrelenting vengeance and
eternal torments, when it is too late to
terrify hecnu-*e It is too late to reform.

iDon't Like the Relief Committee's
Stule.
During the last few days there has
Ideveloped considerable opposition to
���he relief committee's style of disburse-
lim, the funds on hand. There are a
���number of people in favor of dividing
���the monej up among the citizens.
ISome are in favor of dividing it pro rata
l.iikl others again of dividing it equally
hiinong all who lost by the lire.    Last
[Saturdav   night    Mr.   David   called   a
Ipublic meeting at which about 20 were
���present.    He spent a couple of hours
placing  his views   before his audience,
the gist of which was   that  the  com-
Imittec had no legal right   to handle the
mone)  and that he believed it  should
be divided pro rata  among the lire sufferers.    Mr. David said he was kicking
las matter  of principle and   that he  did
I not want   the money for himsell but he
threatened the  committee   with  legal
proceedings  if they  did not divide the

Train Scrcice Changed.
Nelson Ttll une, J Tine **i
The extreme high   water in   the Columbia river  has   washed  away part of
the track   between     Arrowhead     and
Revelstoke, and this cannot be repaired
for about a  fortnight.    In  the mean-
I time the steamers   will run   right up to
j Revelstoke,   which    entails   changes in
llie local service in  order  to make connections   with  the  main    line.      The
steamers will leave Robson at 10 p. in.,
I instead of 9 a. m., and  the trains will
double back from Rossland and  Nelson
nt 8 p. m. to connect with the steamers.
This means  an   additional   service   between   Rossland   and   Nelson.    Otherwise the Kootenav   service   will   not be
nffected.

SANDON, B. C., JUNE 30,  1900.
Once again in the history of wars the world is called
upon to witness a great international religious strife. With
its elevc" thousand years of historical religion, China is set
upon by the Christian nations of the earth, because her
people refuse to accept a multitude of doctrines which their
religion ante-dates by a hundred centuries. Boxer riots,
the massacre of missionaries, and anti-foreign uprisings are
merely the manifestations of Chinas unwillingness to accept
from the Caucasian race a religion which to the Oriental
mind is inferior to their own.
In the eyes of Europe and America, China is a barbarous country. Its people are unenlightened in modern
science ; its progress in arts and invention stopped centuries
before Caucasian history began ; its politics and wealth
have gone the way of all declining nations into the hands
of the few���and the process of evolution is working backward toward a worse state than history records. It is
waning to dissolution and death, as Rome, Egypt and
Phcenecia have died.
A nation's religion, like its science, art and literature,
is a reflection only of the nation's progress and its people's
thought. The onward evolution of the religion of Confucius stopped when the upward progress of China stopped,
five thousand years ago. The religion of Christ went on.
Thru twenty centuries of advancing civilization it has kept
pace with the mental progress of the nations which cherish
it as their own. Rome, already in its death throes, gave
little place to a religion of higher ideals than their everyday
life. But the world was ready for a change, and when
Christ, the greatest reformer of his time, commanded "Go
ye into all the world" his words found lodgment with the
commercial and colonizing peoples of Europe. And thru
them, and thru the aggressiveness of their race, Christ's
command is realized and the centuries meet. The religion
of Confucius, for fifty centuries unmoved, is brot face to
face with the present-day religion of Christ.
We see in them the darkness of the ages ; the mystery
and superstition of mentality less advanced than our own,
and the fanatical idolatry and moral depravity of a nation
long since gone into decay. They see in us the shallow
hypocrisy of the present-day Christianity. They note the
inconsistency of a professedly religious people sending rum
and religion in the same ships. They see behind the
proffered bible the forts and guns of Europe. Thev want
no civilization at the Maxime's mouth, and no Christianity
that associates itself in their minds with the opium trade.
They rebel against the encroachments of these European
disturbers of their religious faith, and they meet with the
means at their command the compulsion which would force
on them the mocking dogmas of a hateful foreign creed.
The war in China will be new only in detail. The
story itself is as old as the world. Every nation and every
century has seen its religious strifes. All down the ages
have the old faiths . been displaced by the new. The
dogmas of the weak have seccumbed to the doctrines of
the strong. With aggression faiths and nations grow ;
with apathy they wane.
So it must come thru time that the Europe of the
future will hold the relative position toward the world of the
China of today. Nations and empires decay not at their
circumference but at their centre. The debauching centralization of wealth and the abject poverty of London, Paris
->r��d Berlin today are the same  signal   lights that warned
Rome when she   conquered the  world  and   built
%.r      .'  l!1__.        !.J1..!J...1.                ���     .
palaces. Nations, like individuals, are punished not f
their sins but by them. Concentration of wealth h?
wrecked every civilization which has gone down before and
will seal the death-warrant of ours and other civilizations.
come. Who knows but that history, in the strange metal
morphose of its constant repetitions, may so transpose the
races and nations of men that the downfall of Europe will!
be heralded by a new Chinese civilization knocking at |J
doors. *
Toronto is wrestling with the  problem  of municip-J
telephones.    It  is proposed  to   inaugurate a municipal,
owned system in order to escape the exactions of tho Bel
monopoly.    The Toronto aldermen  are   arguing  from a_
wrong  premises.    National,    not   municipal,   telephone-*
affords the means of escape.    Municipal telephones cannot
be made an unqualified success, for the  simple reason that
in the nature of things,   thev  cannot  give  as extensive,!
service as the monopoly.    The telephone corporation, thru I
the ramifications of its system, affords  service with outside!
points all over the country.    The   municipal  system wour
be confined within the city limits.     Having installed a citv
system, Toronto would soon   discover that without outside
connections the municipal  service would be at a disadvanM
age in competition  with the  corporation which  holds the!
telephone monopoly in Canada.    If the Toronto city council and the Toronto  board   of   trade would  use their joint
influence with the   nonunion  government they could start!
an agitation which   would  result   in   national ownership of]
telephones.    Handled in conjunction with the post officeas
a national institution the telephone system could be operated
cheap enough to allow everyone to  use  phones as a household convenience.    Until this is  done   they will remain an
expensive appliance, used only by as manv as are compelled
by the exigencies of business to pay the price.
Thk action of certain citizens in hampering the movements of the relief committee in the distribution of tlu
funds on hand comes with poor grace. The committee
aimed to first relieve actual distress and next to expend the
balance in such manner as would accomplish most good to
the community. In calling for tenders for the Sunnyside!
road they aimed to directly benefit everyone who lived on
the hill, the residential part of the citv. There is practicall]
no speculative value attached to these lots. Without resi-j
deuces and families the city cannot prosper. Without the
road Sunnyside cannot be rebuilt. The citv is not in a
pasition to replace the road and the application oi relid
money for the purpose is a genuine relief.
The agitation to divide the relief fund pro rata is,as
we have pointed out before, simply absurd. No oik would
be materially benefited by such an application of the fund,
and the community would lose the benefits that will accrue
from a proper use of the money.
It there are still any persons in want or distress they
should apply to the relief committee and their cases will be
attended to without hesitation. Modesty need not cause
such persons to hang back. The relief committee will nol
parade the poverty of any who apply to them tor assistance

As Monday draws near the question,
"Where are you going to celebrate"
becomes more frequent. The majority
will answer, "Slocan City." Nelson
people have not been enterprising
enough in advertising their affair or in
arranging special trains. Up to date
nothing in the way of advertising matter except an official program has
reached Sandon people nnd no arrangements for the attendance of the band,
hose reel team or football club have
been attempted, while nothing but a
half fare on the regular time card has
been advertised for transportation facilities. Slocan City on the other hand,
has arranged for a special train to leave
here at 6:45 a. m. and return to Sandon the same evening. The football
club has completed arrangements to
place a team on the field lo play Slocan
City and 01 her clubs for the $75 purse
hung up by the celebration committee.
This game will go as one of the fixtures
of the Slocan League, The probabilities are thai Slocan City will have a
nice little blow out.

"For many reasons, mostly of a polit-

ii"ti in general but especially s�� hy
''"Hi'i.il  (lasses,  who  are  intensely
���nwrvuiive nf old institutions, more

tt,iibur of couverti admitted in the
'porta of the China  Inland   Mission  is
|W in relation to  the  number of  mis
ionanes   employed   and   the   cost   of
intaining the numerous stations   As

���l1'  has   lit missionaries   and   native
'Ipere, and reckon* only 60 communi-
,its    Shenai has 107 missionaries and

>e total number of stations established
>' 'heChinn Inland Mission in January,
l-1* Was 818, with 77:1 missionaries and
005 native helpers with 7,147 communicants.
"As will be seen, these figures do not
appear calculated to alarm the administration; but it is the privileged status
enjoyed by the missionaries who openly
work for the overthrow of the national
religion that causes most of the difli-
culties with which the Chinese authorities have to contend in their relations
with foreign powers.
"Hut besides being obnoxious to the.
Chinese people and government on
general principles, the Swedish and
Finnish element in the China Inland
Mission so widely scattered over the
north of China, which Russia regards
as more particularly within her sphere
of influence, is offensive to the government of the czar. There is no reason
to suppose that tbe Boxers are acting
under foreign instigation of any kind,
but if their action tended to the withdrawal of the missionaries and their
propaganda from northern China it is
not probable there would be any regret
at the closing of their establishments
"From the nature of their work, their
acquaintance with the language of the
country, and the freedom of travel enjoyed by them and their native assistants, the missionaries are in a position
to become intimately acquainted with
the condition of the country and public
sentiment, and so indirectly to render
very valuable service to the government of the country whose missionary
societies employ them In the present
state of affairs in northern China this
would be pre-eminently the case, and
for this reason it can be understood that
the closing of the English missions in
particular in northern China would be
agreeable to both the Chinese and
Russian governments, whether brought
about bv the Boxers or other agencies."
life is very solitary since I returned this
creature. 1 remember she danced before me, singing. I recall how she
glanced at me from the corner of her
eye, that she played with me, clung to
me.' And Twashtri returned the woman to him. Three days only passed
and Twashtri saw the man coming to
him again. 'My lord,' said he. 'I do
not understand exactly how, but I am
sure that the woman causes me more
annoyance than pleasure. I beg of you
relieve me of her.'
"But Twashtri cried: 'Go your way
and do your best.' And the man cried:
T cannot live with her!' 'Neither can
you live without her,' replied Twashtri.
"And the man was sorrowful, murmuring: 'Wo is me, 1 can neither li**e
with or without her.' "

A HINDU LEGEND Ol<* THE CI.EATJO*>*
OF WOMAN.
"At the beginning of time, 1 washtri
���the Vulcan of the Hindu mythology-
created the world. But when he wished
to create a woman he found that he had
employed all his materials in tlie creation of man. There did not remain one
solid element Then Twashtri, perplexed, fell into a profound meditation
He roused himself to do as follows: He
took the roundness of the moon, the
undulations of tbe serpent, the entwine*
ment of climbing plants, the trembling
of the grass, the slenderuess of the rose,
vine and the velvet of the flower, the
lightness of the leaf and the glance of
the fawn, the gayety of the sun's rays
and tears of the. mist, the inconstancy
of the wind and the timidity of the hare,
the vanity of the peacock and the softness of the down on the throat of the
swallow, the hardness of the diamond,
the sweet flavor of honey and the cruelty
of the tiger, the warmth of fire and the
chill of snow, the chatter of the jay and
the cooing of the turtle, dove. He
united all this and formed a woman.
Then he made a present of her to man.
Fight days later the man came to
Twashtri and said:
" 'My lord, the creature you gave me
poisons my existence. She chatters
without rest, she takes all my time, she
laments for nothing at all,and is always
ill.'  And Twashtri received the woman
again.
"But eight days later the man came
again to the god and said: 'My lord, my
Messrs Fisher and Hams have gone
into tbe Mansfield Syndicate property
to open up some leads which were exceptionally promising last year, and it
is anticipated that some very gratifying
results will be produced. Tbe Swede
group, owned by Milton and Ericson,
three claims immediately east of the
property of the Kaslo-Slocan Development Co., Limited, have one of the best
showings that has been met with in the
Kootenays. A lead of some four feet,
carrying high values in copper and
gold, runs through all of the claims and
across one of the claims of the above
named company. The intention of the
owners is to continue the tunnel now in
some sixty feet about twenty feet more
to cross the lead at a depth of fifty feet
where, the grade of ore will in these
formations be found higher than upon
the surface. President W B. Strathern
of tbe Kaslo-Slocan Developing Co.,
Limited, has taken on a small force of
men to do some preliminary work on
the company's property and will return
shortly and report as the the condition
of the roads and trails and the feasibility of prosecuting development on an
extended scale. Prominent representatives ol capital are in correspondence
with the company with the object of
inspecting all the White Grouse properties at as early a date as possible, so
that a season of great activity all
through the district may be confidently
expected. Mr. Mansfield also goes in

A   NOVEL   IDEA.
Mrs. Egerton, an English lady, who
did  nursing  work  in  Dawson City,
carried out an original idea in London,
which greatly gratified the C. P. R.
people.   Mrs. Egerton has been much
struck by the scenery along the line of
the C. P. R , as well as with tbe service
which the company rendered across the
continent, and she determined to let the
folk in England know something about
both.   For this purpose she availed
herself of a fancy ball at CoventGarden,
to appear in a costume which took the
first prize for originality, and which
illustrated Canadian scenery and the
C. P. R. in a highly striking manner.
The lady's hat was trimmed in a manner to show the C.P.R. trains in motion;
her cape set forth Lake Ontario, Lake
Superior  and  the   Rocky  mountains,
while the front of her dress showed a
train rushing at full speed through the
wonderful ravines in the far Northwest.
In the lady's hand was a banner which
contained  the  coats  of  arms  of the
several provinces constituting the Dominion.   The  tout  ensemble,  as the
London press remarked at the time,
was wonderfully striking and impressive and gave at a glance an idea of a
country of which Londoners, previous
to the jubilee, knew very little.   Mrs.
Egerton, as Mr. Baker, the C.P R. agent
in London, pointed out, did all this 'off
her  own   bat,'   and   solely  with   the
patriotic view of making Canada known.
The lady is coming out again, probably
this summer, when she will make an
extended tour of the country.   Photographs of Mrs. Egerton in her unique
costume are at the general offices of the
C. P. R.
CHEAP   SWINDLERS.
To illustrate the feeling of Ireland
toward the predominant partner, an
actor, who has lately been touring, tells
the story of an old waiter in a Dublin
hotel. "When are you going to get
Home Rule in Ireland, John?" was the
question. "See yo here, sorr," said the
old man, "the only way we'll get Home
Rule for ould Ireland will be if France
-an'Russia���an1 Germany���an' Austria
_an' maybe Italy���if they would all
join together to give those blaygiards
of English a rare good hiding. That s
the only way we'll get Home Rule,
annyway." Then, as he looked cautiously found, a twinkle of cunning and
a smile of courtesy were added to his
Some of the most cold-blooded swindles which have ever been perpetrated
on the public have been those which
have had for their avowed purpose the
building of plants for ore treatment,
says the Denver Mining Reporter. It
is so easy to estimate the possible ore
tonnage of a district; so easy to fix a
price per ton for ore treatment which
will have a profit of |8 to $4 a ton above
tbe estimated cost of operation; so easy,
these estimates, to base ,i profit of 25
per cent or more per annum, that it is
little wonder that so many idle process
mills and dismantled smelters so eloquently point out these crimes against
the mining industry. Plants have been
built where the promoters had no expectation that they ever would be operated. A commission on the cost of
construction is sometimes a sufficient
inducement to the "cheap skates" who
have and who are preying upon legitimate mining.
The Emily Edith.
The Emily Edith, near New  Denver,
hhs let a contract for driving 400 feet in
No. 4 tunnel.    This,  with the contract
on No. ;-> tunnel, should make it lively
at this property.   The  other   tunnels
have not yet been opened by the management. No ore will be shipped until
the property is thoroughly developed, THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, JUNE 3��
Ore on the Minne-ha ha.
W. G. Clark has eight men working
on the Minne-ha-ha claim of the Carnation group. The property belongs
to Mackenzie & Mann and Pat Burns
and is under option to Lorenzo Alexander. A crosscut tunnel 250 feet long
was run some time ago but it did not
reach the ledge. ^~,  H
It is on this tunnel that the work is
now being done and at present the
breast is in soft seamy rock which is all
shot thru with galena and there are
stringers of considerable dimensions
showing clean ore. There is every
reason to believe that the miners will
break into the ledge within the next
few days, and if the present indications
are reliable they should find something
rich.
