very quiet and outside of the fact that

several directors of the company are on
their way to Rossland to effect a settlement.

An Afro-Italian Embroiglo.
C.   K.   Skales,   a   choclate-skinned
gentleman of artistic propensities and
African extraction   figured as leading
man in the police court   this week  for
his part   in a compulsory   arbitration
proceeding in which he engaged with
an Italian   gentleman   who   carves in
wood���at one-six-bits a cord.    In the
evidence which was brot   out   during
the trial it  transpired that Mr. Skales
owed Mr.   Macoronni   the  sum of 35
cents for services rendered and lhat the
account had been long standing.    Mr.
Macoronni wanted   to  collect the   account with interest.     Mr.  Skales objected to  paying interest.    Settlement
on the Corbett plan   followed  and the
Dago got the worst of it.   Then the
law was invoked and   Mr.  Skales was
defendant.    It   was  a   heart-rending
scene to see   the   prototype   of   Peter
Jackson and the descendant of Michael
Angelo in the docket whilst the judge
with tears in his eyes add his hand in
his pocket cross-questioned   the scions
of these   noble  races  as   to  how the
fragments of porphyry were hurled forth
and back  in   that  bloody  encounter.
But when the African whispered to the
chief of police,   "Foh   Gawd's   sake
boss get me a lawyah or dis heah gent
will hang met" waves of emotion swept
over the audience like   his kalsomine
brush over a fly-spotted ceiling.
'.'Sixty days," said the judge, in a
voice choked with sobs, but the noble
fighting man heard with imperturable
indifference the sentence which would
retire him for two long months where
there were no signs to paint and no
paper to hang.
At the Chance,
The electric prospecting apparatus
which has been in use at the Last
Chance for the past week, is reported
to be giving most satisfactory results.
The ledge has been located in places
where it was formerly lost. Surface
work recently done on the Galena ledge
has exposed some handsome showing
of clean ore, in some places as much as
four feet wide. The Galena tunnel is
now in over 1500 feet and 50 feet was
driven last week, breaking all previous
records. Figuring on the dip at the
surface the ledge may be tapped within
the next 100 feet.

Many months ago there came to
Brockville, one fatal evening, a negro
minstrel troupe, which gave a performance in the opera house. During
the performance one of the principle
performers sang a song about a girl,
with a refrain, "Just because she made
them goo-goo eyes," and since that
time there has been nothing else but
that infernal melody, day and night,
ringing in the public ear. Every boy
driving a delivery wagon or carrying
parcels or playing, is whistling this
maddening refrain, to say nothing of
older persons who ought to know better.    None  of them whistle  the whole
air; they merely repeat with damnable
irritation the few bars with the "goo-
goo eyes" in it.���Brockville Times.

<fn the Slocan
dtp Bivision.
Whatever may be said of stagnation
in other parts ofthe country, it certainly does not apply to mining in the
Slocan City division. In that district
manv properties are aclive, the payroll
is increasing, the output is greater than
ever before and there is more development under way than at any previous
time in the history ofthe camp.
In the Slocan city division there are
two distinct districts, both geographic-
all v and geologically, viz : the Lemon
creek district and the Ten Mile district.
The Lemon creek district comprises all
Within the watershed which finds its
outlet at Slocan City. It is the dry ore
region of the Slocan, which is now attracting so much attention, and which
dry ore will eventually afford an easy
solution of the smelter problem, so far
as lhe Slocan is concerned at least.
Lemon creek is a camp with something of a history. In one particular it
was not unlike Pioche, Creed, Cripple
Creek, Transvaal and almost every
other district which eventually Became
famous���it was turned down hard before its value became known. In the
early days of discovery in the Slocan
prospectors walked unheeding over the
rich ledges of Lemon creek, not because
they were unaware of their presence,
but because they did not consider that
dry ore was worthy of their attention.
Since then circumstances have altered
and the dry ore region which the argonauts despised now promises to become
the home of many handsome dividend-
payers. Such are the uncertainties of
the mine camp.
Just at present   the  principal properties working  in   the   Lemon creek district are the Arlington  and Speculator.
Both these   properties   belong   to San
Francisco   capitalists,   represented   by
B. Frank Collum.    The Speculator is a
comparatively   new   property,  but the
Arlington has been  worked   for several
years.    It was   located   originally   by
Cooper &  Murphy, who  did  considerable  work and   afterward, with Frank
Watson of Spokan, stocked  it  and put
the property on   the  market.    Under
Watson's management  the   Arlington
was extensively worked  and  considerable ore   shipped,   but   an   ore chute
sufficient to make the prospects a mine
was not found  and   the   company was
floundering   along   between an   overdraft and the sheriff when Collum purchased   a   controlling   interest   in the
stock and found   $50,000  for development.    Since  then  the  history  of the
property has   been a   tale  of  success.
Extensive and  systematic development
has been   conducted  and an  ore chute
opened up from which  the owners will
take out   all   they   ever   invested and
many times more besides.
The Arlington is worked thru eight
tunnels which are run in on the ledge,
each opening up the vein 100 feet below
|fie next one- At present the Arlington
is shipping from 60 to 100 tons of ore a
week. The ore is sorted into three
grades at the mine and only the No. 1
grade shipped. Like other dry ores,
especially those carrying native silver,
the ore varies in returns, but a general
average would give about 300 ounces
silver to the ton. Considering that a
freight and treatment rate of less than
$10 a ton is secured for this character
of ore, it is easily seen that the profits
of operation at the Arlington must be
immense. The No. 2 and No. 3 grade
are sorted and left on the dumps for
future reference. Some of the No. 2
grade has been shipped, but the No. 3
rock, which will go about 20 ounces, is
all on the ground yet   and about 5000
claims were bonded last fall by capitalists who are also interested in the
Arlington, for $40,000. The bond
falls due on the 18th of August and will
undoubtedly be taken up. R. I. Kirkwood and Chas. E. Smitheringale and
wife are the principal beneficaries.
The Speculator is being developed
under the management of Wm. Thom-
linson, with Wm. Warren as foreman.
There are 35 men on the payroll, who
have been engaged for several months
in ground-sluicing, sinking, cross-cutting and drifting. Everywhere it has
been opened up the ledge has proved
strong and well-defined. In one place
it was crosscut  for 60 feet before the
tons have accumulated.    It is rumored--Tootwall was finally run   into.    In the
.1 .   ��� -__***��� V����� ���  . .   ��� m _ m
that the B. C. smelters are very actively
competing for this ore for fluxing purposes as it carries high percentages of
iron, lime and silica, the required ingredients for fluxing lead ore. In their
eagerness^to secure this rock it is reported that the Nelson smelter has
offered a rate which will be close to $5
a ton for freight and treatment. This
would net the Arlington a handsome
return on rock which at other properties would be useful only for road
There are 80 men on the payroll at
the Arlington and more are being put
on as fast as good miners can be found,
but it is a property of high values in
which an un-proficient hand might lose
lots of' money and none but the most
scientific need apply. The Arlington
office building and residence is not
equalled at any other mine in British
Columbia. As a tangible evidence of the
prosperity of the company, $20,000
was repaid recently on the $50,000 loan
raised for development.
The Arlington ledge is one of the
strongest and most continuous in Brit- j
ish Columbia. It has been traced continuously from the Lilly B property on
the south, thru the Arlington and
and Speculator group to the Enterprise
on the north, a length of over five
Next to and adjoining the Arlington
is the Speculator group, which covers
the ledge for nearly two miles.    These
No. 2 shaft   some very   nice ore   was
found,   but  unfortunately work  is delayed at this point by the non-arrival of
the pumping and  hoisting machinery
necessary to continue sinking.    The delay is due to the  machinists   strike in
San Francisco.    This shaft  was sunk
70 feet and 100 feet of drifting done by-
hand,   probably  the   heaviest  piece of
hand work ever done in  British Columbia when the pumping is considered.
A drift is now being run in on the ledge
lower   down   and   also   to   drain  the
upper workings.
The ore found in the Speculator is
ofthe same character as that produced
from the Arlington, only even more
desirable for smelting purposes as it
carries higher percentages of iron and
silica and also shows considerable
manganese. The Speculator owners
will therefore have no difficulty in
marketing their ore on very favorable
A great deal of the success which
has attended the Speculator company's
developments is due to the efficient and
careful management of Wm. Thom-
There are many other properties
about the Arlington basin from which
great things are expected. A small
force is working on the Two Friends
and showing the property up well.
The Gatineau and Simco have 10,000-
ounce assays and are cross-cutting to
open up the showing.    The  Lilly   B it
is expected will some day be a great
mine. There is another deal on for the
Chapleau, and scores of other prospects
have the showings and ear marks of
mines All of which makes a hopeful
outlook for Slocan City.
Crossing over the   divide   onto   the
Ten Mile side we come into a different
country.    Here the  silicious or wet ore
predominates.    The old reliable Enterprise is the leading property of the Ten
Mile camp and  its  product  is  a clean
galena running high in silver and lead.
There are many dry  ore properties in
the Ten Miie region, but  up   to date
they have not been worked extensively.
The Enterprise  belongs to the   London and B. C.   Gold Fields company.
It was purchased by that concern about
two years ago from Geo.  Aylard, Wm.
Glynn and John A.  Finch.    Since then
the property has been worked quite extensively and  this spring construction
was commenced  on a 50 ton  concentrator.    This  mill is now  nearly completed and will be in running  order in
six weeks.    It will   be on  the   same
pattern as the Ivanhoe and Ruth mills.
There will be  two Blake crushers one
set of high speed pulverizers, four Hartz
jigs,   and    four   elevators   and    four
Wolfley  tables,  all  to be driven  by a
6 foot and 4 foot double  nozzle Pelton
with 100 feet head.
Besides this mill building the company is installing a 13 drill Ingersoll-
Sargent compressor and an electric
dynamo to light the mill, mine, offices
and camp. A two-bucket tramway,
similar to that now used at the Ruth
will be installed. The buckets and
cables for this are now on the ground
and construction will be completed as
early as necessary to feed the mill.
The mill is being built under contract
by Geo. McFarland, of Nelson, who
also has the flume contract. Most of
the machinery is already up, but some
of it is delayed by the machinists strike.
It is Edward Pallis' make.
The tramway, electric plant and
compressor are being installed by the
company. The foundation for the
compressor was laid this week.    W. E.

The Pope of Rome would be a
highly unpopular gent if he were to
camp in the vicinity of Rossland just
now and undertake to enforce his ideas
on the producers of that community.
The Vatican has engineered the formation of Catholic workingman's associations thruout Italy for the purpose of
combating socialism. These societies
make a specialty of supplying working
men to take the places of strikers.
The associations have a membership
of 10,000 Italians whose hereditary
reverence for the papal fake blinds
them to the fact that they are being
worked to a finish by the arch-imposter
of the universe.
The pope 'sees in the advance of
socialism the annihilation of superstition, prejudice and that simple childlike faith which permits men to believe
that universal right can come out of a
monstrous wrong. On this the church
has lived and thrived. Once let reason
prevail and the church is dead.
Unionism tends toward socialism
and socialism toward a grand uplifting
and educating, thru an equality of
opportunity, of the whole human race.
So the pope marshalls all his forces of
the church to crush out the growth of
socialism, and he undertakes the destruction of labor unions as a necessary
first step.
It would be intensely interesting
to know whether the pope has entirely
forgotten or does he just merely ignore
the fact that Christ himself was a
socialist in word, deed and philosophy,
and that the church of Rome was
socialistic in all its precepts for three
hundred years after its foundation ;
that not until the church fell at the
feet of Constantine to worship wealth
and rank did it recognize wealth or
rank in its own fold ; that for these
three hundred years which followed
the death of Christ the church was
merely an idea; that Christian congregations were communities of simple
agriculturalists and fisher folk who
lived in harmony with nature ; that
no priests asked princely pay nor popes
gorgeous palaces, but all were content
to live in the peace which passeth
understanding ; that labor unions were
un-necessary and unknown,   for every
"Have yez been hearin' " said Mr.
Dooley, "annything uv Gineral Ananias uv Sandon lately ?"
"Oi have not," said Mr. Hennes-
"Well thin ye're away behind the
toimes," said   Mr.   Dooley.      "He's
been growlin' thru  his kolums   like a
Blake crusher an' sayin' nothin', " continued Mr. Dooley.    "I  think, jegin'
frum his organ, the  Haymakers' Ray-
view, that he wants to  be dark uv the
coorporashun uv  the city  uv Sandon.
There was an ilicshun uv dark in Sandon, do ye moind,   Hinnessy, and Mr.
Ananias he ran.    But he was ilicted to
sthay out," said   Mr. Dooley, "by the
illegant majoorite uv four to two.    Ye
see whin Ananias wants annything he
wants it raale bad���worse'n the Pears'

shun's payternal  projenitors   calls fur

city clerk  was no good  he says, says
he, 4I won't be happy  'till I git it,' he
says, an' when the  aldermen  says it's
worth sixty cases per,  he says, 'I'll do
it fur fifty,'  he says.    'I   know they'll
vote fur me,' he says,   'an' thin I'll be
the popular incumbent uv the  offus uv
dark uv the glorious Silver city uv the
Slocan,' he says.    So he sits down behind his modesty an' writes a compra-
hinsive raypoort uv his sterlin' charac-
tur an' how he cud perform the jooties
uv city dark better than annyone since
the days uv  his original  ancistur, an'
he sinds it to the council  in  the same
ixpectant  spirit that a  sucker writes
home fur more  dough ; an'  whin, the
ilicshun thranspires he wins in  a walk
like a crab���by goin' tuther way.    The
uther fellow gits four votes an' he gits
two.    Afther that, Hinnessy,  the four
thinks that he's not legally ilicted, an'
he roars thru his  organ like  the   zay-
furs thru his whiskers, all about  him-
silf an' the loss uv $220  that  the  unfortunate rate payers is put  to  be not
lettin' him  perform the jooties uv city
dark, an'   some   more   about buckin'
the union an'  some small  pox bills.
Fer Gawd's sake   Hinnessy  don't iver
be guilty uv buckin' the union.    Anny
way he goes to his  worshupful hyness
the mayor an' he says, 'What's up Mr.
Veto, he says.    'I've been waitin' four
weary years,' he says, 'to git my graft
in on the city,' he says,   'an' now that
I've cor-ralled two   able-bodied   votes
afthur   hercelanean   ifferts,'   he says,
'they won't sthand fur me prisince in

justis to the loikes uv me,' he says.
" 'Aye, but we can fix that,' says
Capt. Veto.    'I'll just veto the whole
thing,' says he, 'an' thin we'll call fur
a new ilicshun fur city dark an' no one
ilse will apply,' he says, 'an' you'll git
to be city clerk same as  Oi  got  to be
mayor,' he says.    Thin Captain Veto,
he vetos the  ilicshun   an'   he calls fur
new applicayshuns, but the  other fellows they wants  to   know   where are
they to, an4  they moves  to over vote
the veto.     4Aye,   but   ye can't,' says
Captain Veto.     'We will,'  says  they.
'But ye can't,' says he 'fur I won't put
the moshun.    I want yez all to ricillict
that Oi rule   this august assimblige,'
he says.    'We'll   see,'   says   they, so
they sarve the mayor with blue papers
to convayne the council  and' he won't

he says.    So they sarve  nootis  under

"Oi think Ananias must be in the

"Oi feel sorry fur Ananias," said
Mr. Dooley.

What with the possibilities of
electric prospecting, oil concentration,
a probable advance in silver, a movement for a Canadian refinery, a railway
commission with power to regulate
freight rates on all Canadian lines now
being serisusly considered at Ottawa
and the rapid expansion of the Canadian lead market on account of the
prosperity wave in the eastern provinces and North West Territories, the
Slocan may be on the verge of a great
boom. Capitalists and others are advised to get their money down before
the rise comes. There are hundreds
of properties in this division which are
easily come-atable now but which with
silver at 70 cents and other conditions
improved could not be gazed on for
less than a cool million. This is the
time to get in.

These Three.
Transportation, communication and
currency, these three are the prime
tools of industry and commerce. As
concrete things a locomotive, a telegraphic form and a $5 note differ widely, yet they are all alike in this, they
are all the tools of industry. In no
sease are they producing agencies in
society. A car load of merchandize
leaves the Pacific coast and arrives at
the Atlantic (or should do), neither
better nor worse, containing neither
more nor less than the consignment,
the same applies to a wire and a letter.
Currency is no exception, money in
every form has only one legitimate
function the facilitating of exchange,
the representative but not the measure
of value.
Before industry and commerce can
know any real freedom; these three
must first be secured from the clutch of
private monopolistic ownership and administered by the state with the maximum of efficiency and at cost of operation.
Whilst these three are the cherished
and most strongly fortified of monopolies, it is interesting and should be
very instructive to remember that the
state in each one in a partial way recognizes its functions as administrator.
We have a "State railway, r" the
''post office" and."government money."
���V **** * a
Just here we are ndt concerned1*'with
the injustice of handing over what we
may call the "balance of power" in
these great utilities, to individual and
corporate explbitatioh, but would rather
draw thotful attention to the fact that
they., are the "tools of ,i^dystrv" and
not producing agencies in themselves.
The whole world seems agreed upon
the doctrin that the state which can j
produce most cheaply and abundantly
is most fitted and most likely to survive the fierce ordeal of world competition all the time growing keener.
Modern production calls for -the best
tools and f'these threeVare the most;
important and indispensible.
If the state declines to enter the field
of production and for the present persists in the "free gift" policy of disposing of natural wealth to individuals it
should at least see to it that the-producing community is equipped with
the best of tools as far as its jurisdiction extends. Every tax and unnecessary burden upon transportation and
free exchange is a form of national
suicide, increasing our handicap in the
world race.
Nothing today commands such reverence as a "business plan or man."
Accepting this point of view, is our
government wise, logical or businesslike in its hybrid policy of administering a part of these three great tools of
industry and leaving the controlling
balance to private exploitation. Profit
drawn from these three sources is the
revenue of the parasite.

The Rambler-Cariboo company has
purchased the Washington mill from
Mitchell & St. Jean and Thos. Mitchell
now has a gang of mechanics moving
the machinery to a point lower down
the creek where it wilf be set up to treat
the Rambler rock. The Washington
mill was built in '95 by Mitchell & St.
Jean to handle the product of the
Washington mine but has never been
used to any great extent. It is a 60-
ton mill with a Blake crusher, three
pair of rolls, six Hartz jigs, turmmel
system, hydraulic classifiers and round
It is a very complete plant and when
set up and supplied with plenty of water
will easily over-run Its normal capacity

A Sad Demise.
It is with feelings of deepest regret
that we cronicle the taking away of
one of our most popular fellow citizens
and respected business men, Mr. James
Williamson. Deceased first came to
Sandon in the summer of '96 since
which time he has been identified with
the ups and downs of the city, always
ready to lend a helping hand, always
cheerful and public spirited. All who
knew him, and they are legion thruout
the Kootenay, join us in extending to
his mourning widow and children all
the sympathy and sorrow for his timely
demise which his many sterling qualities call forth.
The funeral will take place to the
New Denver cemetery this afternoon
and will be conducted by the Forrester's
society of which he was an active member. Mrs. Williamson arrived by yesterday's train from Boston, Mass., to
attend the last sad rites.
At a meeting of the Sandon Miners'
Union the following motion was
"That this Union is and always has
been of the opinion that the introduction
of Chinese and Japanese labor into this
camp is detrimental to the best interests
of the community.
"Therefore, this organization makes
earnest call upon its friends and those
in accord with its principles lo avoid
patronizing the Japaneze laundry now
in operation in this city. "
