Business Prospects are Brightening
The business prospects for the Slocan
division are brightening.    The payroll
is   steadily increasing   and   has   now
reached respectable proportions.    Notwithstanding the   unsatisfactory price
of lead, the   indications  are   that   the
output   this   summer   will   be   large.
There is now no queston about a maket
as the Puget Sound company and the
Selby people are in the field for all the
lead ore   they dan   get   and   the Trail
smelter is also running to   the   limit.
The forces at  many of the big  mines,
which were cut   down   three   months
ago, are   now  being increased.    The
Star is   employing   120 men   steadily
while the Queen  Bess has 80 and the
Rambler 60.    The American Boy has
40 men.   ,The Last Chance is again
taking on men and will  have 50 or 60
in a couple of weeks.    The  Payne has
let contracts and  has   a   force of men
employed on   company account.    The
indications are that the   big   property
will have a heavy  payroll  before long.
The Ruth has a few men working in
the lower tunnel  and  the showing U
reported most satifactory.    The Trade
Dollar, Sunset, Mountain Con,  Monitor, Soho, Tom Moore, Surprise, Wonderful and several others are employing
forces of from ten to forty men, while
the Noble Fiv* and Ivanhoe are carrying on   extensive developments.    The
Sovereign and Argenta are expected to
join the list of  active   properties soon
and the Reco and Goodenough may be
depended on for a considerable payroll
at a later date.    Altogether, there is no
reason for complaint as   to   the future
prospects for the camp and this autumn
may be a very busy one in the   Slocan.
Another Property Opening Up.
Operations will be. commenced with
a small force today on the England,
Ireland, Scotland and Halifax claims,
lying between the Wonderful and
Minnehaha groups. The properties
belong to a Nelson syndicate.
The Last Chance.
The A tunnel at the Last Chance has
been re-opened and a few men put on
in that part of the mine. The workings are drying up nicely and the force
will be further increased next week.
Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Hendryx are now
at the mine and Messrs. Stinson and
Wilson are expected in a few days to
attend the annual meeting, which
lakes place on the 16th of July.
Madam Urso's recital did not attract
the audience that the merit of her performance deserved, Her concert on

Gome Gentle Pilgrim Come.
While the effete and crowded east is
sweltering and prespiring in Che blasting
rays of a torrid sun, the Slocan is enjoying the beautiful salunrious  Italian
weather   for   which this  great white
metal camp has become famous.   All
about us the gentle fragrant zephyrs
zeph and the mountain peaks wear a
canopy of beautiful  snow from which
the sparkling, tinkling rivulets  flow in
crystal coolness to the placid  bosom of
the blue Slocan.    Down in the gulches
the Iillies bloom and the great green
firs rear  their lordly heads and spreading branches to shelter the fairy glades
from the summer sun, or words to that
effect.     Why,  tenderfoot  brother, do
you stay in the .dusty, sun baked cities
of the east to bake by day and swelter
by night while your patience runs down
and your laundry bills run  up.    Why
must you stay in the stifling centres of
superheated civilization  to be forever
the slave of the iceman and the mark
for the  soda fountain girl.    Pull your
freight for the glorious Slocan with its
mountains of silver and snow.   Come
lave your malodorous   pedal  extremities in the limpid waters of the halcyon
Slocan,  or listen to the tinkle of Carpenter creek as she gently rolls the
boulders down the sump and playfully
tears flumes and bridges from her path.
Come and roll in the snow of the Last
Chance  Divide or wallow in the fleecy
coolness of Paddy's Peak.    Pitch your
little a\ tent on the summit  of the Kokanee hills where the booming thunder
of the   slowly   moving   but   resistless
glacier will furnish you sweet melody by
day and the stars will comb your hair
by night.    Come gentle pilgrim to the
glorious Slocan.    Throw away the toils
and cares of the sunburnt 1 ity.    Leave
the strifes and the passions that haunt
men's lives for the grand dignity of
nature. which calms  men's souls  but
fills  their   blankets   with   porcupines
You don't  know much fun we have in

take care of themselves while you are

The Fourth of July in Sandon.
Several enthusiastic United States
folks living in this vicinity celebrated
the 4th of July on Thursday by setting
off a couple of cases of giant on the
Wonderful trail and tjien turning out
the band to produce liberty harmony at
given points along the street. Viewed
as an experiment on irrigation, the
celebration was a howling success.

Richard   Orando THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, JULY 6,
W)at tf)e freaks Bid to nelson
and What tf)ep Bid to Vrail.
The Aggregation of Freaks are winners in the baseball line. This is one
of the principal discoveries made at the
Nelson celebration. It was also clearly
proven that Fred Bailey, Paddy Murphy, Little Willie Richards and one or
two others can play ball. But the
greatet discovery of all is that Ernest
Petty is a cyclone agent in the pitching
line. Up to the hour of going to press
no one has been found to dispute the
contention that Petty is the most advanced student of the base ball science
Hie aggregation left Sandon on
Sunday last and played an evening
game in Kaslo at which Ed Giegerieh
pitched upraises and the field got considerable practice. The score went up
around a dozen and the gate receipts
are now on the way to Milwaukee.
On Monday afternoon the big game
came off at Nelson. The program
called for a draw for places oetween
Nelson, Trail and the Freaks, but the
Trail team did not show up on Monday
and the aggregation went at Nelson.
The line up of the Slocan team was as
follows: Petty, pitch ; Geo. Long,
catch ; Paddy Murphy, first bag ; Fred
Bailey, second ; Adam Esch, third ;
Ed Giegerieh, short ; Willie Richards,
centre ; Charlie Greenlee, left ; Kid-
well, right.
It was the first time the boys had
ever played together and they went on
the field depending on good individual
playing against Nelson's practice and
team work.
It was swell ball from the turnloose.
The Nelson boys had it put up that the
Freaks were easy, and they prognosticated among themselves about the
hard game they would have next day
with Trail ; but that was before taking.
When Ernest Petty stepped into the
box and started throwing the gun
worm curves in their direction the
Nelson boys consecitively pounded the
inoffending atomspherc soft and then
retired to the bench to revise their
notions about who would play with
Trail. After a while they got tired
trying to locate those fnnny things that
Petty handed across the plate and they
just went thru the motions of striking
at them and let it go at that. In the
whole game they just touched him up
for six safe hits and fourteen of them
fanned. With the exception of Ed
Giegerieh, who had an off day, the
Sandon fielding was fairly good, altho
they showed lack of practice on several
occasions. Willie Richards played a
star game in centre field, covering a
lot of ground and accepting every
chance.    At the  bat |Sandon did fairly
well, considering their lack of practice.
Nine safe hits were made off Sheer, two
of them two-baggers by Petty and
Bailey, and one a three-base hit by
Bailey. A number of short infield hits
let Sandon men to bases owing to the
poor fielding of Eacrett at second and
Cook at short. Paddy Murphy, who
played first for the aggregation, got
hurt at Kaslo on Sunday evening and
after playing two innings had to give
up his place to Adam Esch from third,
while Lemay of Slocan City took that
Sheer pitched for Nelson and played
good ball but he was poorly supported.
Harry Houston did some good catching
and threw two men out when they
tried to steal second, but the other
fielding on the Nelson side was ragged.
Dudley Blackwood muffed a rainbow
lob and let in two runs and Worth on
third bag stacked up four errors against
himself, only accepting one chance.
On the whole, however; it was the best
game of ball that has occured in the
Kootenay this summer and the aggregation demonstrated its ability lo make
a standoff if not to beat anything in
the baseball line in  B. C.      The score

Having defeated the Nelson team,
the Slocan aggregation was elected to
play the Trail team an Tuesday and
they went at it with a confidence of
victory. The weather was not very-
favorable and after two innings a heavy-
shower lasting twenty minutes made
the ground so muddy that good playing
was impossible. The aggregation was
not in nearly as good shape as the day
before as they had to play Eacrett and
Mills of Nelson at third and right.
Eacrett's playing was not of the kind to
win him wreaths of columbine, as he
threw wild to first twice and failed to
get some easy grasshoppers that came
into his field. He also made a poor
mess of batting, and fanned with regu
larity and precision. Mills, the other
Nelson fielder, got two chances and
missed them both, but his errors were
due to the slopiness of the ground.
Harry Houston played a good game
behind the bat. Paddy Murphy pitched
for the first three innings and held the
Trail boys down very nicely, but had
to retire on account of the injuries he
received Sunday, Petty took the box
again and after the fourth inning, shut
the smelter city folks out altogether.
The aggregation's lack of condition
was offset by the fact that the smoke-
eaters played Rossland in Trail the day
before and Wormington, their star
pitcher, was not in shape to do business with heavy batters. E. McDonald started the pitching for Trail, but
after the first three innings gave it up
to Wormington, who in turn retired in
favor of Drew. The aggregation
batted them all heavily and piled up 14
hits. McCreary caught a fine game
for Trail.

SANDON, JULY 6,    iqoi.
The British Columbia government would be amply justified in convening the legislature to pass an obligatory arbitration act. Barney Macdonald's antipathy to labor organizations threatens to put Rossland on the
hike and the fishermen's troubles
threaten the salmon business with
another year of conflict. A compulsory arbitration act would save these
important industries from rupture and
perhaps sudden death.
It is a sad commentary on the
bravery, loyalty and spirit of the
Strathcona Horse that ex-members of
that body are hiring thAiselves out as
special constables to help the C. P. R.
defeat the trackmen. If ever a strike
on God's green earth was justified this
one is, and the Strathcona mercenaries
who hire out to beat the trackmen
down are moral and sociological prosti-
who, by accepting pieces of silver for
helping to rob others of opportunity to
live free, are thereby selling their own
freedom. Where one is bond none are
secure in freedom, and the next revolution of the inevitable may land the
Strathcona specials on the section. If
these specials starved in the streets tomorrow this journal could not spare
them a sigh of sympathy. Men who
by becoming scabs would plaster with
contumely the honored name of Strath-
cona's Horse deserve no laurels for
past deeds aud no favors in the future.
Of all the overworked, underpaid, uneducated and downtrodden trackmen
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, there
is not one, Dago, Chink or Jap, who
would stoop so low as to play the part
these Strathcona specials are playing.
Prostitute, not hero, is their brand.
Their names should be dropped from
the roll of honor and their pictures
tunred to the wall.
Over in Seattle a chief of police
started out for political purposes to fix
a dive keeper with a io-bore sawed-off,
but was caught in a trap and got shot
himself. Now nearly every paper in
Washington and B. C. is publishing
sissy articles about the evils of a lawless town.
Considine, the  man  who  did the
killing, is a tough who has practiced
toughness as a profession from East
Larned Street, Detroit, to Washington
Street, Seattle, and he should have
been lynched long ago. It is not that
there is no law in Seattle that allows
Considine and men of his class to be
tough, but rather because there is law
improperly administered. Law is not
necessairly justice. In a gun camp,
where no written law ^xists, every man
is on a level and injustices are few.
The Colt's Navy works as quick for
the pigmy as for the giant and as true
for the pauper as for the millionaire.
No man takes liberties where the gun
is law, for he knows that the court of
arbitration is in his  neighbor's hands.
The unwritten code of the frontier
justifies no injustice with finical and
hair-splitting interpretations of enacted
statutes, and it recognizes personal
liberty only so far as it does not tamper
with the liberty of others. The code
ofthe frontier is crude, but it is honest
and effective.
It is where a semblance of law
has been set up and poorly carried out
that the tough and bad man flourishes.
Here license takes the place of liberty.
Men like Considine corrupt the politics, mis-direct the administration and
buy the courts. They do with horrible
effronty acts that the gun camp tough
would not have the nerve to try.
They know that the courts are impotent and that Judge Lynch is off
shift. Seattle would be rid of all thugs
of the Considine class before the first
sunset if it became known that the
vigalance committee had taken over
the administration of justice and the
judges had been paid off.
It is not that Seattle has no law
that makes her tough and life within
her gates uncertain. It is because the
citizens of Seattle are too cowardly to
see that their laws are properly administered. They have created a
judicial power and placed it in the
hands of those who will most abuse it.
Seattle would be better with no law at
Sandon is badly in need of a recreation ground. There is not a lot
within nine miles of the city where the
boys can play football, baseball, lacrosse or any other outside sports, and
the youth of the community have to
go out of town for their games or stay
at home and do without.
If the city council goes about it
right, a recreation ground can be secured without any great trouble or
expense. There is a flat below the
Minnesota concentrator which would
serve the purpose admirably. This
property was promised to the city by
the government some two years ago
for use as a  nuisance  ground   but no
title was secured, altho the matter was
brot to the attention of the council on
several occasions. It .seems that there
is a question as to who really does own
the ground referred to, but the title lies
between the government and the K. &
S. and as the railway corporation has
also promised to deal very leniently
with the city for whatever claim they
may have, there should be slight difficulty in securing possession. If the
council would bestir itself to the extent
of getting a title, there would be no
great difficulty in getting the ground
cleared up. Probably a thousand
dollars, or at the outside fifteen hundred, would make a very fine recreation
ground, fence and all, and it could be
made to pay for all further expenses
and improvements. A thousand dollars may not be easily availabie for
this purpose among the citizens at
present, but if business picks up this
summer Sandon will celebrate Labor
Day again and on that occasion no
boubt considerable   monev   could   be
found to supply a place where sports
could be held, At any rate, it will not
be a mistake on the part of the council to secure a title to the ground without delay.
Thousands of people are starving
in the Province Shansi, in China, and
if relief is not forthcoming that country will be depopulated. Hordes of
destitute Celestials whose homes have
been wrecked and whose country has
been ravished by the invaders, roam
aimlessly up and down the highways
in search of food. Every blade of
grass and scrap of bark has been devoured by the starving inhabitants.
This is the country from which the
allies are trying to extract $320,000,-
000 indemnity to pay for a war of
plunder forced on it in the name of
Christ. The Chinese have found
Christianity a queer religion, when its
professed followers teach the universal
brotherhood and act the part of pirates.
What, with the opium trade forced on
her by unscrupulous statesmen and
this last war, forced on her by no less
unscrupulous missionoires, China has
had about all the Christianizing influence that is coming to her and she
would no doubt be perfectly satisfied if
her Caucasian brothers would only
permit her, to revert to the complacent,
halcyon heathenism of Buddah and

Who ia a Socialist.
Who is a socialist?   It is the man
Who strives to formulate or aid a plan
To better earth's conditions.    It is he
Who,  having ears to hear and eyes to
Is neither deaf nor blind when'might,
Treads down the privileges and rights
which God
Means for all men; the privilege to toil,
To breathe pure air, to till the fertile
The right to live, to love, to woo to wed,
And earn for hungry mouths their meed
of bread.
The socialist is he who claims no more
Than his own share from generous
nature's store:
But that he asks, and asks, too, that no
Shall claim the share of any weaker
And brand him beggar in his own dp-
To glut a mad, inordinate lust for gain.
The socialist is one who holds the best
Of all God's gifts is toil���the second,
He asks that all men learn the sweets
of labor,
And that no idler fatten on his neighbor:
That all men be allowed their share of
Nor thousands slave that one may seek
his pleasure;
Who on  the Golden Rule shall dare
Behold in him a modern socialist.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you,
Weep, and you weep alone,
For this brave old earth must borrow
its mirth;
It has troubles enuf of its own;
Sing and the hills will answer;
Sigh! It is lost on the air; v
The echos bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from a voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They  want full  measure  of all  your
But they do not want your woe.
Be glad, and your iriends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all;
There are none to decline your nectared
But alone you must drink life's gall.
Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast and; and the world goes by;
Succeed and give, and it helps you live
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train;
But one by one we must all file on
Thru the narrow aisle of pain.

Falling 0M- in Production of Yellow Metal Due to South African
Returns as to the gold and  silver
production ofthe United  States and of
the world in 1900 are contained in Volume  IX. of "The Mineral   Industry,"
which is reviewed in the current num-
hcr of the Engineering and   Mining
Journal.     The world's  production of
gold   last   year   was   12,381,454   fine
ounces,  or $255,924,654,   as   against
15,071,141  ounces, or $311,505,947 in
1899,  showing a decrease of 2,689,687
ounces, or $55,581,293.    This unfavorable result was due to the small contribution made by the Transvaal mines, a
few only of which were operated during
the early months of the year.    Deducting the Transvaal   output   from   the
grand totals for  1899 and   1900,  the
statistics show an  increase in the other
gold-producing countries of $10,171,000
The largest gains were  made by  the
l'nited States, Canada, India, Rhodesia
and   Brazil,   while  in   Australia   and
China there were important  decreases.
In one respect  the gold situation in
1900 was unprecedented.    It has never
before  happened  that the  output of a
great gold-producing country  has been
suddenly cut off entirely, or almost entirely.    TheTrnnsvaal, which produced
$78,070,761 in  gold   in 1898,   was expected to yield over $95,000,000 in 1899
and   110,000,000 in   1900      The war
broke out  in  October,   1899, and the
total for that year was $72,961,501;
while in 1900 the only  production was
from  the few mines  which were operated by the government in the opening
months ofthe year, and  this work waa
slopped when the British armies reach-
Johannesburg.    Instead  of $110,000,-
000,   the Transvall produced last year
The United States, which in 1899,
ranked third among the great gold
producers, in 1900 showed a substantial
increase, which with the elimination of
the Transvaal, put il in the first place
in iqoo. Its production amounted to
$78,159,674. Australasia dropped from
tirst to second phice, while Canada took
the third rank, tho at a long interval,
and Russia the fourth place. These
'��ur countries produced together 72.2
per cent of the total. Four-fiths of the
Canadian production came from the
Yukon territory.
The silver production of the world
increased from 177,836,582 Troy ounces
(commercial value $105,900,116) in
'899 to 182,632,653 ounces (commercial value $112,205,742) in 1000, a gain
ot 4.7l)6,o7i ounces. The United
States with 59,561,797 ounces of a com
������lercial value of $36,876,900, continued
to hold the first place as a producer,
w��th Mexico with 55,804,420 ounces
($34-269,494), anci Australia, 14,063,244
ounces ($7,636,238) and Bolivia io,-
432,(185 ounces ($6,406,712) following
111 the order named. Regarding the
iuture of stiver mining the Engineering
and Mining Journal says: There is
every reason to believe that the
world's mines will keep on turning out
the white metal and that no large, decrease need be expected, unless a very
considerable fall in price should occur;
and there is no reason to expect such a
change under present conditions.
How Jach Lotcea tcaa Drowned.
Trilby Collins, once a famons newsboy of Seattle and Dawson, and who
this year was employd on Prof. Lippy's
elaini on Eldorado, arrived by yesterday's train and in the evening took the
Dolphin for the Queen City, where he
will-regale his numerous friends with
stories of the golden north. Trilby
told an Alaskan reporter many things,
one of which related to a scow accident
on the upper river.    He said:
"A scow loaded  with horses,  mules
and machinery  was wrecked 10 miles
below Big Salmon on Tuesday morning
at 10 a. m., drowning John W. Lowes
and causing a narrow escape for nine
others who were taking the scow to
Dawson.   The scow belonged to J. A.
Rouse, of Rouse and Wren, freighters,
of Dawson.    Mr.   Rouse at the time
was   behind    the   scow    in   a   small
boat   gathering   poles  for a  manger
when  the accident occured.    The left
hand channel was taken about a mile
and a half abovs the wreck,   instead of
taking the right hand one which is
considered dangerous by all boat men.
The channel  makes a big bend about
half a mile above the big bed of rocks.
Once a scow gets into this channel it is
almost impossible to get it out again.
The   scow   hit   the   rocks   broadside,
throwing Lowes, who was at the sweep
with three others,  into the river over
the up stream side.
"He sank immediately, going under
the scow and coming  up about forty
feet from the  wreck only to disappear
again.   The scow then began to go to
pieces, throwing the live stock and the
rest of the crew,  who were asleep at
the time, into the water.    A struggle
for their lives then began.    Mr. Leslie,
who runs a wood camp on the opposite
side of the river,  seeing the accident,
took a small  boat and   succeeded  in
putting them all ashore.    Two members ofthe N. W. M. P. detachment at
Big S.'dmon went to the scene and took
charge of the drowned man's effects.
Lowes was  born in Toronlo, Canada,
but had been living at  Sandon, B. C.
for some time,  where he owns   two
hotels and some real estate.    He was a
friend of L. C.   Lane, of Dawson."���

Mine Will not Close Down as Re
The shipments of concentrates from
the St. Eugene mine during the month
of June amounted to 2200 tons, says
the Leader. It hat* been reported that
the mine would close down next week.
Manager Cronin when seen said that
the mill would run as long as they
could keep it going and that there was
nothing definite with regard to its closing down. He said it was impossible
to tell any length of time ahead just
what would be done.. Mr. Cronin was
asked regarding the article which appeared in the Nelson Tribune stating
that an agreement had been reached
between the Smelting Trust and the
St. Eugene by which the mine was to
be closed down for a year, and said
there was nothing in it, and he was at
a loss to know how  such a report  got
