Ore in Place on the Mysterious
The Slocan City Demonstration.
Slocan Cily is making great preparations far the Labor demonstration
which is to be held there on June 25th
and 26th. Several athletic events will
be pulled off, for which prizes to the
extent of $350 are offered, and together
with parades, dances and speechmaking
will make up quite an interesting program. The C. P. R. is giving a special service on both days, leaving Sandon
for Slocan at at 6:30, and returing will
leave Slocan at 18:30 for Sandon. The
fare for the round trip is $1.95.
In years past, when a mining man
wanted to wish for anything big, he
invariably wished that he could find
the vein that the Wonderful ore came
from. No less than $40,000 worth of
galena was taken out by ground sluicing, and it always has been a slock expression that "the lead is there some
place." Notwithstanding the abundance of float, different managements
have worked on the property and in all
probably $50,000 worth of work has
been done, but so far as the general
public has been aware nothing in the
nature of a well defined lead had ever
been located. Tunnels, drifts and upraises were run in all directions until a
blueprint of the property looks like the
v\eb-work of a spider with a Slocan
jag on.
Recently a lease on the propery passed into the hands of W. W. Warner.
He also holds a large block of stock,
but the stock is not for sale as Mr.
Warner considers he has a bonanza.
Work was started on the property
about two months ago with two or
three men at fir.st, which force has now
been increased to ten.
The first work done on the property
under the Warner management was to
prospect on the surface, and two parallel veins were located without much
trouble. The larger of the two ledges,
which is helieved to be the Wonderful
ledge from which the large deposits of
float came, has been opened up in
several places by open cuts and invariably shows ore. On Thursday afternoon a new opening was made on the
surface near No. 3 tunnel which ex-
poded 18 inches of clean sleel galena.
In some places these cuts are made in
deep wash and it is with difficulty that
the vein is exposed, but in others the
formation is exposed with very little
work and the outcrop of the vein is
easily located.
Taking the trend and dip of this vein
as it appeared on the surface some engineering work was done which demonstrated that if the vein went down
the No. 3 tunnel should have crossed it
at about 100 feet from surface. Going
into the tunnel the miners tore the
lagg'm out and found that the ledge
had not only been crossed at the point
indicated by the engineer but that it
had been partly opened up by a short
drift which was run in from a raise in
the roof of the No. 3. This drift and
raise was carefully lagged up and
would possibly never have been located
without some pretty good engineering.
Opening this drift up and continuing
it along the vein to the west, Mr.
Warner has exposed a magnificent
chute of ore which is unquestionably in
place. For 45 feet along the vein it
averages over a foot of clean steel galena, assays from which show a net
return, allowing for freight and treatment of over $75 a ton or $1,500 to the
car. In running this drift several tons
of ore have neen taken out which are
now sacked ready for shipment. The
miners are at present doing their best
to fix up the timbers of the old workings, and when they get matters
straightened out will open the drift
further along the vein and stope lo the
Taking the same dip and angle, in
the No 4 tunnel the ledge was located
at about 400 feet from surface, and in
this tunnel also the showing was lagged
up and the tunnel swung off to the
left so that il ran away from the ledge
entirely. A short drift to the right exposed some more hidden workings in
which a foot of carbonates and four
feet of concentrating ore is showing.
Here the ground is caving badly and
the present No. 4 workings mav have
to be abandoned altogether.
In the No 5, which is the lowest
tunnel of all, the ledge has been exposed at 600 feet and from where the
tunnel crosses it an upraise is being run
on an incline to get under the ore body
shown in No. 3 and -., and when this
is completed the property will be in a
very fair state of development.
No shipping has been done from the
property yet, altho there is about two
cars of ore on the various dumps. Mr.
Warner intends to commence shipping
about the ist of August and hopes then
to put the property on a steady producing basis.
The Mountain Con.
Canadian Group to be Worked.
W. H. Brandon came up from Silver-
ton on Thursday to make arrangements
for commencing work on the Canadian
group. A contract for 200 feet of tunnel will be let and work commenced
early next week The Canadian group
has the greatest altit'ude of any
property operated in the vicinity of Sandon, but Mr. Brandon says he does not
apprehend any difficulty in doing the
work as the snow has disappeared sufficiently for them to commence operations without inconvenience.
The Slocan Star.
The Star shipped 102 tons of ore this
week. Surveyor Drewry is running
lines on the Shogo and Morning Star
claims of the Slocan Star group. The
claims will be crown granted.
The Star is working full-handed and
the mill running steadily.
H. C. Riehle, representing the London company which owns the Mountain
Con group, arrived in Sandon this
week and is now making preparations
to open up the property. He has let
two contracts to C. A. McLeod, who
will put on about 20 men early next
week. A few men were put on yesterday to put the trail in better condition
so that supplies can be packed to the
The Con property was bonded from
W. W. Warner last tall by W. J. Graham, representing a London syndicate.
Considerable money was spent on the
property but outside of erecting cabins
very little progress was made. The
prospects are promising ones and the
present management will undoubtedly
accomplish something in the way of
Mr. Riehle has been mining in Norway recently, where he handled asbestos and zinc-silver-lead ore propositions.
Speaking of the smelter situation here,
he said that Slocan mine owners should
experience no difficulty in disposing of
all the lead ore they could produce to
English smelters, especially if they
shipped in large consignments. The
Norwegian properties with which he
was identified previous to coming to
B. C. produced something like 40,000
tons annually, and he always found
competition for the zinc-silver-lead ore
very keen  among English   purchasers.
Star Team Will Drill in Nelson.
While in Nelson last Saturday, Oscar
V. White, superintendent of the Slocan
Star, made arrangements with the
celebration committee for an additional
prize for drillers. The official prize-
list, when published, will offer two
prizes for drilling, one of $125, open to
all coiners, and the other of $75 for
men who have not won a prize before.
With the first mentioned prize will go
the Gold Fields cup, which Ringwood
& McLead, the Star team, won last
year. If they win it again this year
they become possessors of the cup and
champions of Kootenay.
The Star team is practicing fait' fully

they were last year, Barring accidents

It is remarkable how the little
things will sometimes escape the notice
of the newspaper man. Violet Margret
Duffy arrived in the Duffy home circle
on May 28th and reached an age of
almost a month before her infantile
presence became known to the society
reporter of this great family journal. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON,  B. C, JINK 22,
Wanted���A Literary Genius.
(Spokesman Review.)
Homer says "all folk yearn after the
gods." The depth of the yearning of
English-speaking folk for a contemporaneous literary god is indicated by the
forced admiration bestowed on the recent doggerel stuff which Rudyard
Kipling pathetically puts out as poetry.
A week or two ago Mr. Kipling published some verses on "the guard at
Karoo." Two stanzas were cabled to
the United States along with the remark that the English critics were saying that Mr. Kipling had recovered his
lost fiie and his old swing. The cabled
stanzas run thus:
"Quick, ere the gift escapes us,
Oul of the darkness we reach
Eor a handful of week-old papers
And a mouthful of human speech.
"More than a little lonely,
Where the lessening tail-lights shine.
No, not combatant, only
Detail guarding the line."
United States poetry ofthe 20th century is not a product to brag about, but
it is not exaggeration to say there are a
thousand scribblers in this country who
could writr better lines than these.
One of these days, it is hoped a real
literary genius will come up from obscurity. A greeting awaits him that
will turn his head. If his genius should
entitle him to a place with lights ofthe
second magnitude���if he shall write
poetry with Byron, Tennyson, Moore,
Poe or Longfellow, or fiction with
Scott, Dickens, Irving or Hawthorne���
he will have praise and honors above
our great millionaires and statesmen,
our noted jurists and our distinguished
fighters on land and sea.
If he should visit Washington, the
president and his cabinet, members of
tlie supreme court aud noted leaders of
the house and senate, all will pass into
the background. If he should honor
New York with his presence, interest
would instantly decline in J. Pierpont
Morgan, James J. Hill aud the great
host of lesser lights who count their
fortunes in the millions.
The time has passed when one might
gain distinction by amassing millions,
or putting himself at the head of a
great railway system, or organizing a
gigantic trust. These achievements
have grown commonplace. Also the
country has had a surfeit of military
glory. The nation now reserves its
most ardent plaudits for the coining
literary genius.
"What are you crying about?" asked
a kind hearted stranger of a lad standing in front of a newspaper office, weeping as if his heart would break.
"Oh, pa's gone upstairs to whip the

"Pieces of him have," said the boy
with a fresh burst of tears, "and I'm
expecting the rest every minute."

The Spokesman-Review man is
editorially prospecting for a literary
genius. He is ont with a declaration
that Kipling* writes doggerel stuff.
Judging from this side of the Atlantic,
the Review man's criticism has the
merit of truth. Maybe in India or
Africa or some other God-forsaken
region where war is the principal industry and murder is a fine art, Kipling's bloodthirsty sentiments may jibe
with public opinion, but he is several
degrees out of his latitude when he
spring's truck like Gungha Din and
Fuzz}* Wuzzy on Canadians or Americans. The Lord of our far-flung battle
line don't live in these parts.
So far we are willing" to agree witli
the Spokesman-Review man ; but
when he yearns in Mergenthyler type
for the advent of a literary (renins who
can write poetry like Tennyson, Poe
or Longfellow, or fiction like Scott,
Diekens, Irving or Hawthorn, he is
surely following the Chinese fashion of
eclipsing* the ability of the present generation by a fatuous worship of ancestral splendor.
There is not a little red school
house from the Saskatchewan to the
Rio Grande where it is not spoken
that these chance pets- of history are
the literary geniuses of all time. This
is accepted, but is it true? Laving
aside the homage which all men in a
greater or less degree render to the
idols of early training, and comparing
these men with the writers we have today, is there not room for the conclusion that the old timers are equalled, if
not outclassed ?
There is only one literary assay
office���appreciation. If the work of a
literary man finds favor with the world
it certainly assays high. ' There is a
self-appointed superior class of literary
critics who presume that they alone
are qualified to pass judgment on
literary production, but as a general
rule these marks live in a flat, wear
their hair long, smoke cigarettes and
lack ability to attract attention at a
camp meeting.
Accepting the referendum of public opinion as proof, we will offer the
Review man a test. Let him go to his
exchange   table    and   indiscriminately
to bet a seven-dollar bill to a three-cent
piece that when he gets done Byron,

will not assay a trace. We are willing
to bet The Paystreak against the
Spokesman-Re view that if he keeps
the process up for a month and reads
Edwin Markham's "Man With the
Hoe," for instance, or James G. Clark's
"If Christ Should Come Today" ever)
time it crops up, the lines will be so
seared into his brain that he will not
forget them on this side Jordan's wave.
If he collects and pastes on end like a
printer's "doup" all that he finds of
Eugene Field or Ella Wheeler Wilcox
he will have a "string'* that will reach
around the Review building. He
could also collect enuf of James Whit-
comb Reilley's and the Atlanta Constitution man's poetry to paper his house
inside and out.
As for prose, present day writers
are so far ahead of Scott, Dickens,
Irvinp- or Hawthorne that if ancestry-
revering parents and dead-level school
mams did not carefully instill it into
the young mind these men were great
authors the rising generation would be
liable to waste all its time on such examples of present day inferiority as
Mark Twain, Anthony Hope, Robert
Barr, Grant Allen, Robers Louis .Stevenson and other modern romancers
whose books generally reach a circulation of a hundred thousand or so before
the literary critics have a chance to
head off the stampede and warn the
poor ignorant herd of plebians that
such works are   totally without   merit.
The Spokesman-Review man is
simply echoing thru his sombrero when
he awards his guarantee that if a really
C_> mi
great literary man should crop up he
would have honor and praise above the
billionaire railroad wrecker, the professional politician or the vain-glorious
fighting-man. Bret Harte did more
for California than any other man
living, yet they starved him out of the
land of sunshine and banished him to
London to become a space writer.
Joaquin Miller's poverty is proverbial.
Walt Whitman was for many years a
cipient of Dr. Bucke's charity. We re-
have yet to see the dispatch which
states that Eugene Field was a guest
of honor at a state-house dinner. As
a penalty for displaying literary ability
George D. Herron is being prosecuted
by the conventionality cult in every
state in the Union. John J. Ingall's
''Opportunity" made him famous, but
to his temerity in writing what he believed to be true he sacrificed liis seat
in the senate and his chance of wealth.
Gilbert Parker married an heiress and
thereby escaped literary poverty. Bliss
Carman is dead broke.    Tolstv's treat
ment in Russia is not a circumstance
to what Eugene V. Debs got in x\v
United States for speaking and writing
icy truth in capstil torm.
Literary genius is not appreciated
in United States or Canada and never
can be so long as the purveying of
news from which sentiment necessar.
ily springs is left in the hands of such
money-worshipping, wealth-lauding in.

The names of Edwin Markham,
James G. Clark, Charles Ci. D. Rob-
erts, Eugene Field, Bret Harte, Ella
Wheeler Wilcox and many other contemporaneous writer*, will emblazon
the nation's hall of fame when the
Spokesman-Review man and thousands

Morgan, Gould, Rockefeller, Schwab

Vou kissed me!    My head
Dropped low 011 your breast
With a feeling of shelter
And infinite rest,
While the holy emotions
Mv tongue dared not speak
Flashed up in a flame
From my heart to my cheek.
Yonr arms held me fast;
Oh, your arms were so bold;
Heart beat againsi heart
In their passionate fold.
Your glances seemed drawing
Mv soul thru my eyes,
As the sun draws the mist
From the seas to the skies
Your lips clun-< to mine
Till 1 prayed in my bliss
They might never unclasp
From this rapturous kiss.
You "kissed me!    My heart,
And my breath, and my will
In delirious joy
For a moment stood still.
Life had for me then
No temptations,  no .harms���
No visions of happiness
��� Outside of your arms,
And were I this instant
An angel possessed
Ofthe peace and the joy
Thai are given the blest,
I would fling my white robes
Unrepiningly down,
I would tear from my forehead
Its beautijul crown,
To nestle once more
In that haven of rest
Your lips upon mine,
My head sin your breast.
You kissed me!     My soul,
In a bliss so devine,
Reeled   and   swooned   like   a   drunken
Foolish with  wine,
And 1 thot 'twere delicious
To die there, if death
Would but come while my lips
Were yet moist with your breath;
'Twere delicious to die
If I might grow cold
While your arms clasp me round
In their passionate fold.
And these are the questions
I ask day and night:
Must my lips taste no more
Such exquisite delight?
Would you care if your breast
Were my shelter as then?
And if you were here,
Would you kiss me again?
A Parable.

[hat that Railicaq Speed Means to
Canada. -Canada Would Attract
Before long ihe hundred-mile-an-
|our railway train will be with us.
Orangemen is are under way, says
|Un's Bulletin, to construct one from
lerlin to Haniberg in Germany, and
mother from Liverpool to Manchester
lg England. The latter is to be a sin-
be rail road. The train will be run on
track shaped like an inverted V, with
single rail as its apex. It will con-
ist of but one long car, which will
Iraddle the track, so to speak, one
lalf of it hanging on each side, just as
pack saddle hangs on the back of a
ink*. Every car will carry its own
fetor. The cars will cover the whole
Ltance of 33 miles in 20 minutes���a
feed of 110 miles an hour. As the
in- will be overhead and derailment
.possible, this record-breaking rate of
Ipeed will be quite safe. If the new
n'Stem works as well as anticipated,
he speed of travel by railway will be
Practically doubled. Such a speed will
|i*i\ ite a revolution in the business
(world. Two hours and a half would
(be the time required to travel between
Toronto and Ottawa, and three hours
between Toronto and Montreal. The
sleeping car would become superfluous
except sin transcontinental trains or
journeys covering long distances. It
the Liverpool-Manchester line proves a
success, there is no doubt the new system will be rapidly extended between
all populous centers both in Europe and
America. The 100-mile-an-hour railway means everything for Canada. It
will be the means of attracting to Canada the bigger share sif the transatlantic passenger, mail and express business. The adoption of the Liverpool-
Manchester System between Sydney
and inland points in Canada and the
l'nited States would make possible a
lour days' trip between Great Britain
and the cities of the Eastern States and
provinces. The voyage between New
York and Liverpool by the fastest
steamer would occupy six days. The
same journey via Sydney and the new
railway system could be made in four
days. With such advantages in its
favor, we do not see how Canada could
fail to attract the hulk sif the transatlantic business. The success ot the
electric mono-rail system will be followed by the inauguration of a daily
transatlantic service via Sydney, C. B.,
or some maritime province port. The
adoption of such a service is by no
means a remote possibility.���Ottawa

Big Strike at Ainsteorth.
(Nelson Tribune.)
Tbe long tunnel in the Highlander
mine has reached the vein and is now
in it over 20 feet. It is supposed to be
150 feet wide. The ore carries gold,
silver and copper, and as the tunnel
taps the vein at a depth of 1200 feet
from the surface, which is the greatest
depth of any mine in British Columbia,
the future of Ainsworth is assured, as
many properties can be worked thru
the Highlander tunnel. The Highlander is owned in Philadelphia, and
Maxwell Stevenson of lhat city is resident manager.

E. A. Brown, who has the contract

The American Boq.
The American Boy is now employing
a force of 3a men and will send down
eight cars of ore this month. Most of
the ore runs low in leaJ and a very
favorable treatment rate is secured
from the Hall Mines smelter. No inconvenience is being experienced with
water at the American Boy this spring
and there will be no cessation of operations there.
Thomas McGuigan, superintendent
os the property, went out yesterday on
a brief visit to Nelson.
The Payne.
Three carloads of rock from the
Payne dumps were shipped up to the
Noble Five at Cody on Thursday and
the big mill will star: to grind on the
1000-ton test on Monday. An elevator
will be built on the outside of the mill
to carry the rock up to the ore bins.
David Ferguson, assnyer, arrived
from Rossland Thursday and is now a
member of the Payne official staff. It
is reported that George Ransom is to
be book-keeper for the company.

Sandon is Getting Good.
The Silver City of tlie Slocan is becoming on intensely mond community.
For lhe past three weeks the police
officer's job has been a sinecure and the
stipend;iry magistrate has not work
enuf to keep his hand in. Jags are
scarce, stud horse poker is an unknown
quantity and African avenue is as complacent as a Bruce county cemetery al
sunset. "Hit the Kitty/' "I'm Fat,"
and "That's the Baby," are forgatten
songs. Except for the fact that some
of the boys smoke cigarettes and occasionally play baseball on Sunday, Sandon is the most moral community in
the shadow of the Selkirks. If virtue
is its own reward this town will soon
be wealthy.
