hill being in the granite, has never attracted the same attention as others in
the district, altho considerable money
was spent in an attempt lo make a mine
out of the Mollie Hughes. Should the
Turris fulfil the indications and become
a shipper it will disprove many theories
and statements of the yellow-leg brand

owners encouragement to open up their
Goat Mountain claims.
Fire at the Chance.
Fire destroyed one of the timber
stations at the Last Chance tram on
Monday night, consuming a considerable amount of valuable mine timber.
The cause of the fire is unknown but

and beyond putting the tram out of use
for a few days did not seriously inconvenience the company.

To the Editor of The Paystreak.
Dear Sir.���Owing to the legal complications arising from the Rabbit Paw
and Slocan Star case a good deal of
unpleasantness has developed. I am
one of those accused of acting the part
of a spy on the Star property. I wish
to most stoutly deny such accusations.
I am a miner not an expert. I never
carried a tape line or a compass and
could not survey if I did. I have
always been loyal to the company from
whom I drew my pay and have never
been offered nor have I accepted money
from any party for furnishing information, least of all from J. M. Harris.
As a matter of fact" I do not know
where the Rabbit Paw is and have
never been above the No. 3 a mnel on
the Star. I did not furnish evidence,
or information of any kind and never
spoke to any parties interested.
I regret the circumstances which
make this letter necessary.
George Grant.
Trouble arose at the Arlington mine
this week over the grub served, or
rather the manner in which it was
cooked, and as a result 95 men packed
their blankets down the hill. It is reported that the cook has also been fired
and his place taken by a man who better understands the chemistry of the
kitchen. Most of the old men will go
back in a few days. *
A Land Grab in Neoada.
Ontario's Siloer Mines.
They have in the western states of
the United States a second great "irrepressible conflict."    It is over irrigation, and is between those who on the
one hand desire  the reclamation and
settlement of the arrid region in small
farms and the creation of a dense population which will  promote the general
prosperity of the whole country,  and
those on the other hand who desire to
control the public lands in such a way
that  they may be  gradually absorbed
into great stock ranges which will bar
the settlement and development of the
country.    The case of Nevada is an
illustration of this.    That State secured
the passage of an act of Congress permitting it to take two million  acres of
land as a flat grant, with the  privilege
of locating it wherever it chose, in lieu
of a school  land grant to  which it was
entitled.    The Stale land  officers, it is
asserted, sold this land for a mere trifle
to the stockmen,   who have located it
so as to control every available drop of
water in  the  State of Nevada, in its
natural  courses and  channels, and by
thus controlling the  water  they control  the range,  and,  altho  there are
42,385,735 acres of public land in Nevada, there  is  not, say the advocates
of irrigation, a quarter section  of land
in that State upon   which a homestead
settler can go and get water to irrigate
enuf of it to  yield  a  living   from   it.
The  population of Nevada, small as it
is, has been decreasing during the last
ten years.    Yet there is a land  enuf in
that State which could be reclaimed by
utilizing the flood waters which now go
to   waste  to  support   a  population  of
more than a million people.
There is considerable activity in the
siver mines in the Port .Arthur district
at present. When silver took a slump
some years ogo, the mines, which were
at that time in operation, shut down,
and with the exception of the West End
Silver Mountain mine, which has been
operated the past few years by the
Wiley Bros., of this place: the number
of other mines have been shut down.
Now, it is likely lhat these mines will
again be opened, and work pushed
ahead. The Badger and Porcupine
mines, on which extensive development
work had been done, and which were
said to be rich properties, have been
purchased from the Wiley Bros., of this
place, by Americans and the Badger
will also be pumped out again with
large forces of men.

Copper Prospects in Ontario.
_^___���___ e
Late advices received by Ontario government official respecting the mineral
development of northern Ontario contain some important facts. A large
copper deposit, two miles long, has
been discovered in the Michipicoten division, south of Lake VVawa. The land
has been acquired by Mr. A. W. Eraser's Ottawa syndicate, in proportion of
about two to one in area. Some of the
ore found is reported to have been of
the sensational richness of 27 per cent.
It is probable that the early completion
of the Algoma Central Railway will
cause development work to go on almost immediately.
Another statement is that Mr. Cler-
gue's gold mine in the Lake Wawa district, from which a trial shipment has
just been made, has turned out to be
an excellent body of ore. Gold discoveries are also reported some 17 miles
west of Sudbury, where .here is said to
be a large body of ore, one vein 80 feet
wide going $8 a ton, and another vein
18 feet wide going $16 a ton.
The Fraser syndicate is also doing
extensive work on the Skaboose gold
mine, nine miles from Dyment Station,
to which they have built a spur line of
railway. The ore is shipped to the
Keewatin reduction works.

GEO. WAPEE,        JAS. H. THOMP**
Secretary. Vice Grand' I
uou? the Uncouth Canadian Should
Mahc his Little Bote to the
Man tcho ia the Son of Hia
The impending affliction of the Royal
Duke has set all Canada on its conventionality and every   snob  loyalist   and
picyaune tin   soldier in  the   country is
already going thru the  motions of wel-
coming His Highness in the most correctly proper style.     Lord   Minto has
generously undertaken to stage manage
the program at Montreal   while  Major
Maude will see that the procession outrivals anything Barnum ever produced.
All   questions   pf   precedence   will  be
settled before the  hippodrome hits   the
pike, so that there will be  no disgraceful street fight  among  bishops, judges
and military or  naval  dignitaries as to
which of them is the   real   thing   and
entitled to get   next to   the Duke.    It
seems that the   common   herd  is   not
going to be let near the sacred presence
ofthe heir apparent, altho  they will be
permitted to   stand on   tbe   street and
holler.    In Montreal the reception committee is to be   very   select, limited to
something like boo, everyone of whom
must be a member of the Four Hundred and travel   in   good   society.    It is
not yet made   clear   what   constitutes
good society but the lower  rive  have a
sneaking suspicion that  a silk hat and
a frock coat are the outward and visible
signs and a cockney accent  is the password.    Delegates from  the aristocratic
clubs, both French and English, will be
presented, also representative metftbers
of the Masonic order,   Mystic   Shriners
and the Royal  Arcanum, bul   the Hod
Carriers Union and  the Trackmen will
not be there,   either personally   or   by
proxy, altho they may  have  a  holiday
without pay in honor of the event.
No one   will   be   allowed   to  shake
hands with the Duke, but   members of
the reception   committee   will   just be
allowed to walk up  in front of him, do
a made to order   bow   and   pass   on.
The Duke got pump handled to a hard
oil finish over in   Australia   and   he is
not going to  extend   the  glad hand to
be ganged  by these  Canadian  dubs if
he knows it. Too violent hand-shaking
is liable to cause locomotor ataxia.
Tom Shaughnessy is  spotted for the
knighthood and will probably be called
Lord Linkpin of Crow's Nest and Cody
or the  Duke   of  Three   Forks.    This
honor in no  way relates  to the  trackmen's strike. |J|
If the strike is   broken   in   time the
Duke will take in   British Columbia on
his tour and if his   advance   agent   is
onto his job the royal   presence  will be
switched into   the   Kootenay.    As   he
may blow into   the   Silver   City of the
Slocan it is   only   right   that Sandon's
august mayor and  other loyalists who
will have to shoulder the dignity of the
city should post themselves  on the etiquette of the occasion.    There seems to
be no specified  plan   of conducting   a
reception, but it  is only proper that the
local authorities should hava their pro-'
gram ready, as the citizens could never
survive the humiliation   of seeing the
Duke arrive in town when   they were
unprepared to receive him.
The mayor should proceed at once to
prepare an address. All addresses to
the Duke should be prefaced with his
title, as follows : H
"To   His   Royal   Highness George
Frederick Ernest Albert, Duke of Cornwall   and   York,   Duke   of   Rothsay,
Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and
Duke of Saxony : Earl of Carrich and
Inverness,   Baron   of    Renfrew    and
Killamey, Lord of the Isles and Great
Stewart   of   Scotland,   K. G.,   P. C,
K. T., K. P., G. C. M. G., G. C.  V.
0., LL. D., D. C. L.,&c.,&c.
In   his   address   the   mayor should
draw the attention of the  Duke to   the
many  beautiful   features   of   the  surrounding  scenery, point out the track
of the mud slides and make a few timely references to the   city's triumph   of
municipal  government.     This address
should be   supplement  by a few  spontaneous   outburst   regarding the eight
hour law from Mr.   Cliffe, and  a short
oration from   Windy   Bill   in his usual
inimitable style which would finish up
the speech-making.
It would then be in order  to conduct
the Duke about the   city   to   view the
principal points  of interest.    The procession would of course be placed in the
bands of the   most   prominent  men in
the city.    Sailor Jack could   no doubt
be induced to  come   over   from  Kaslo
and take a place at tbe head of the cal-
vacade.    Macoronni's Florentine grace
of carriage   would   qualify   him   for a
leading place while Windy   Bill would
see to it that he   was not   lost   in   the
shuffle.    C. K.   Skales  is  unavoidably
out of town for a few days  but  would
douhtless permit  the   use of his name.
Dutch Alma as marshal! of the day and
a retinue of rubbernecks  and   tenderfeet would complete the procession.
On leaving the depot the Duke
should be escorted immediately to the
famous water barrel and giver a photo
of the historic rocks ; he might also be
induced to take a  walk  along the sur
vey line back of Compeau's house or
shoulder a sawed-off and climb the
bars to Bucking Tom's residence.
The route of the procession from this
out will be as follows : Down the K. &.
S. track to   Giegeriche's   store,  where
the column will   divide in the middle to
pass the usual box car which stands at
the head of Reco Avenue.    Proceeding
along the track  the royal   party could
get a fine view of the   tinning   on   the
roofs of the various business establishments.    Passing down Col.    Bray ton's
marble steps they would  come up thru
African Avenue and  Reco street, bucking the black jack game  and faro layouts on  the   way.      At   the   Virginia
vault the Duke might  be persuaded to
climb up on top and   do ,1   cake walk
or a little buck and wing work for the
edification of  his   loyal   subjects.    By
this time it is morally  certain that the
procession will be so large   as to take
30 minutes in getting by a given point ;
that is if anyone decides to set 'em up.
Passing down  Main  street  the  Duke
and Duchess could get a grand view of
the Cascade at   the foot of  the flume
and might offer some suggestions as to
how a  wayward and   wandering flume
should be prevented from going out on
the installment plan. Following this
with some object lessons' on irrigation
at Paddy Murphy's, the cortege would
proceed to the city hall where the Duke
and Duchess would be accomodated to
a seat on the railing with Windy Bill
and Macoronni as guards of honor.
The municipal burlesque will then be
proceeded with.   The mayor will take
his seal and will be immediately ousted
by   an   unanimous   resolution   of the
council  backed by the chin  wheel support of the rubbernecks.    A  few remarks   about  the   smallpox   ai counts
would  furnish the mayor with an opportunity to strike the Duke for enuf
to settle,  while   the   aldermen   could
move a resolution  that the royal party
be requested to read the statutes, which
could be handed   around to them in
sections to suit the guests.    For  an
enchore they could be treated  to a rehash of the financial statement for the
last half year.    It would  then  be in
order for his worship to deliver a short
address,   pointing out to the Duke the
picturesque  features of our civic government   and  demonstrating that  we
are a  progressive western people who
do not adopt  the orthodox methods of
older lands.    After a cold  lunch served
at  the  Cody  Brewery they  would be
conducted to the depot and presented,
as a  final  souvenir,    with a copy of
Lowery's Claim, while the band played

SANDON, AUGUST 24, igoj.
Theodore Rooseveldt has
written a book about Cromwell. We
have not seen the book, but if it is
written in the rough rider style which
characterizes Teddy's other literary
efforts it should be a peach. Rooseveldt likes wars and Cromwell had a
whole string of them. He killed men
because they did not agree with him
in politics and religion and he turned
England, Ireland and Scotland into a
slaughter house in order that his ideas
might supercede. Carnage and bigotry
distinguised his reign and the narrowness on which his fame was built is in
evidence among some classes in Britain
and America even to this day. The
Connecticut Puritans who resolved in
council to let the laws of God stand
until they had time to make better
were of the same stock from which
Cromwell sprung, and in him and in
his clan Rooseveldt should find much
to admire for Rooseveldt is certainly a
man killer, a bigot and an egotist.
duces is regarded by journals of the
Miner type as a blow to legitimate
industry. Which would seem to insinuate that mining is not a legitimate
industry and has no vested rights.
There is twenty times the actual
wealth represented in mines in British
Columbia that there is in smelters.
Figuring on the usual interpretation of
invested capital as a vested right, who
has the best of this vested rights talk,
anyway ?
pean pauper labor can get past the
tariff wall, and secure in the knowledge
that the market is his and cannot get
away from him, Morgan contentedly
awaits the time when the Amalgamated
Association of Steel, Iron and Tin
Workers will come to his terms.
When that time arrives the United
States consumer will be made to pay
for the delay and expense of the strike.
Over in the land of the free John
D. Rockefeller has the prettiest little
vested right that was ever raised out of
a monopoly cold deck. Last 31st of
December Jqhn D. sat in a swivel
chair in the little back office of a 13-
story New York building and wired
forth the decree that Canadian lead ore
should be tabooed ; and straightway
the Slocan fell dead. What a cinch !
A province impetuous enuf to hobble a
vested right like that by building refineries and smelters for itself is altogether too radical.
The provincial government need
have no squeamishness about interference with vested rights by bunding
a refinery. There is no private capital
interested in a refinery in Canada, and
the only vested right concerned is that
ofthe miner who wants a legitimate
compensation for the capital invested
in silver-lead mines.
The Nelson Miner is one of
those vested rights grannies. It
makes a business of defending vested
rights. Incidentally it defends a few-
vested wrongs ; the Crow's Nest Coal
Company grab for instance.
The Miner is against government
refineries and smelters. It says that
corporations are in the business of
smelting silver-lead ores and the government is bound to respect their
vested rights.
This sounds like the Smith Family
proverb about the early bird that gets
the worm.    How about the worm ?
If smelter monopolies have a
vested right to charge the miner all the
traffic will stand for smelting his ore,
and the government is bound to respect
this vested right to the extent of refusing to help the miner, where does the
miner get off at ?
���The Slocan Star mine alone is
worth two or three smelters like the
Hall smelter, and yet, according to the
Nelson Miner, the smelter has a vested
right to make a colossal hold out on
all the ore it can lay hands on. That
is private enterprise, and a government
smelter which would return to the
miner a larger  share of what he  pro-
A Government smelter and refinery on Slocan lake which would
treat lead ore at cost price would make
the Silvery Slocan the hottest mining
camp on earth.
Either 'the census enumerators
made a mess of it or Canada's growing 1
time is a hallucination. The census is
a frost. The exact figures are 5,338,-
883. This shows just about a good
natural increase on the returns of 10
years ago and all the immigration during the decade is lost. But the slow-
increase is not the worst feature. It is
that the exodus still continues and hv
that exodus Canada is losing the very
flower of her family. Canada's immigration policy is a travesty. The fig
ures show that every Chinee, Jap,
Doukhobor or Dago immigrant has
forced a Canadian into exile. We are
simply trading desirable Canadians foi
undesirable foreigners and recording
the natural increase of the country as
a gain in population. This horrible
barter will continue just as long as
Canada's unnatural immigration policy
continues. The day that Canada shuts
her gates on the degenerate hordes ot
Europe and the wage-cutting swarms
of Asia the blight will pass and the
growing time will begin. Make Canada a respectable country for Canadians to live in. No other immigration
policy is necessary.
The intelligent electorate of the
United States vote for a prohibitive
tariff on the understanding that it will
protect home industry from the
pauper labor of Europe. There is
nothing in the tariff, however, to prohibit pauper laborers from Europe
coming to United States in legions
and there performing all the pauper
labor there is in them. This is one of
the manifest advantages of protection.
There is another beauty which the
circumstances of the steel strike are
profusely illustrating. When iron
workers in free trade England go on
strike iron masters stand to lose their
trade if they do not settle, because
foreigners will come in and sell in the
British market. When iron workers
in United States go out for something
better Pierp Morgan sits down behind
a 35 per cent tariff barricade and offers
his men nothing with the generous
concession that they may take it or
leave it.    No steel  produced by Euro-
British   Columbia    shows   the
largest increase ; Prince Edward Island the smallest. B. C. is a mining
province and the greatest gains are in
the mining camps. P. E. 1. is an
agricultural province and the greatest
losses are in the farming communities.
If there was one man at Ottawa who
comprehended the significance of this
Canada would be safe. Had one-tenth
part of the money squandered in inducing useless and undesirable foreigner to come to Canada been devoted to
advertising Canada's mineral resources
Canada's census returns would have
had another tale to tell.
The Vancouver Province is the
latest acquisition to the ranks of the
advocates of government smelters.
Get under the big tent Friend Nichol,
but look out someone don't call you a
socialist. It would be just like a trick
the Mining Review or some of those
influential journals would do.
The census returns make Canada
look like thirty cents���plugged money. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, AUGUST 24,

Sometimes I go, reflectively,
On journeys retrospectively,
And  for the moment dwell amid  the
scenes of long ago;
And on such outings, as a rule,
I wander to the dear old school,
And visit with the boys and girls
whom there 1 used to know.
Perchance you were acquainted, too.
With many old-time friends I knew;
You  may have met Ann Alysis and,
also, Ann Elize;
Or; maybe chummed with Alby Bray,
Or sauntered with Phil Osophy,
Or delved with Ed.   Ucation, who was
wont to be so wise.
And there was Etta Mology,
Ah, yes, and Ann Thropology,
And Polly Gon and Polly Glot and

Now all these friends I used  to see
Are half forgotten dreams to me,
Yet once within my thots they  held a

to the fact that your company is the
largest lead producer in the United

ping capacity of over 4,000 tons of concentrates per month, or say yearly shipments of about 50,000 tons. This is
equal to 25 per cent of the entire output of the United States. Your company is able to furnish about one-eighth
of the entire lead output of the United
The Empire State-Idaho is one of the
great mines of the United States, about
1000 tons of silver-lead ore per day
being handled in its immense concentrating plant. The number of men employed is about 700. The Empire State

A Mine that did not Pa��.
The mills ofthe gods grind slow, but
h��v are not a circumstance to some of
Lhe mills of the English companies in
[lie Kootenay. J- Kernaghan has the
ract for removing from the Waver ly
���Line the concentrating plant purchased
from Fraser and Chalmers, and will
place il on the cars for shipment to
Marbel Hay, Texada Island, where it
will be installed at the Marble Bay
mine. HL
The mill  was built some  four years
ago by Ciant-Govan's notorious company to handle what was purported to be
a valuable ore body in the Waverly mine.
Some of die stockholders became suspicious that lhe property was not what it
was represented to be and sent a dis-inter-
esled expert to prepare a report.    The
expert advised the   company to sell the
mill machinery, which had not yet been
fnllv installed,   for whatever it would
bring ind wind up  the affairs.    Since
then   ihe   mill    has   stood   a   silent
I monument to the  incapacity  ofthe en-
L'ineer,  Patterson,   who,   by the  way,

reported  that  the Payne company was
going to buy the  machiney to handle
the Payne dumps, but the  deal did not
go thru.  There is also a very tine 7000-
foot ariel  tramway on the Waverly for
which George Alexander is understood
lo have made an offer at one time.    It
was liis intention   lo use it at   the Antoine mine in McGuigan basin, but this
deal  also  fell   thru   and the  tramway

Monet) Paid  ocer on  Tuesday for
The Big Dry Ore Property.
(Slocan Drill.)
The bond on the Speculator group
fell due on Tuesday last and was prom-
tly met by J. Frank Collum, the money
being paid over at the Bank of Montreal, Nelson. It amounted to 90 per
cent of the purchase price, or about
$49,000 in all. The participants in the
division were R. I. Kirkwood of Slocan
City, Thos. Kilpatrick, superintendent
of the C. P. R. at Revelstoke ; C. E.
Smitheringale of Slocan City and Andy
Tunks of New Denver, the first two
getting the major portion.
It was on  August 20,   1900 thatthe
deal was   signed   up   on   the   group,
which then consisted of four claims and
a fraction.    Since then   the   company
has purchased or staked  a  number of
adjoining properties  until  they possess
the largest acerage in the camp.  Work
has been steadily pushed ever since the
bond was signed, upwards of $50,000
having   been  spent   in   development,
which, with the price of the deal, $55,-
000,   makes   $105,000,   demonstrating
the faith of the purchasers.    The work
done has proven up two strong parallel
ledges, while   others   are   believed   to
exist on the  ground.    On   the   No. 2
vein, at the original  workings, a   drift
was run in over 200 feet, and  a  winze
sunk 76 feet, double compartment size.
A crosscut was  then run east and the
No. 1   vein  encountered.     A  crosscut
from the creek to drain this opening has
been driven 180.
The No. 2 working is a drift on the
No. 1 vein and it is in over 1000 feet,
and there lately has been sunk a shaft
on the Eda fraction to a depth of close
to 60 feet. At the present time ore is
showing in all of the main openings,
but not sufficient depth has been gain-
to prove the true value of the property.
Two small lots of ore were shipped last
winter to Nelson and gave fair returns.
A big force of men has been employed
on the property right along, there now
being more than thirty on the payroll.
The company now owning the Speculator is known as the Ricowilabi Mining Co. with headquarters at San
Francisco. The capital represented
is identical with that in the Arlington,
and the work done on one property only
enhances the value of the other. Operations will be continued steadily on
the property with the Object of placing
it on a shipping basis. J. Frank Collum is the managing director of the
company, Wrm. Thomlinson superintendent and W. H. Warren foreman.

of the appointment is not known,   but
it is said to  be in the land department.

ton states that he is going back to end
his days in the  province  for which he
has   always   had  a warm   heart and
among the  people who are loyal subjects of the British Empire.  The Union
