Wants to Get to Them Strong.
The Sandon baseball boys have been
trying to rib up a Sunday excursion to
Kaslo, but have run up against a hard
proposition in negotiating with the K.
& S. The management of that company asks the boys to dig up $100 for
the train to t.ike them down and back.
The officials of the little road must have
absorbed a touch of Jim Hill's community of interests elixir lately and
decided to raise rates. They have been
in the habit of running specials from
Kaslo up to Sandon al $40 per, and on
one occasion gave a train to McGuigan
for $30. They figure that it requires
two round trips to take an excursion
from Sandon to Kaslo and back, which
is probably correct, but nothing short
of railroad arithmetic can make twice
forty equal one hundred.
The man who dubbed the K. & S.
the "chippie" road was wiser than he
Fred Benson's Luck.
(Slocan Drill.)
Some weeks ago it was announced
in these columns that VV. J. Hinchliff
and Fred Benson had made a rich discovery between Twelve Mile and Ten
Mile creeks. Fortune has followed
closely upon them, for on Tuesday the
two claims were bonded to R. E.
Fishbum, of Nelson, for a sum ranging
in five figures. It is a working bond,
running for one year, and the papers
were drawn up by A. M. Johnston, of
Nelson, the legal representative of Mr.
Fishbum. A contract was let to the
owners to run 100 feet of tunnel, upon
which they started Wednesday. The
property is also to be surved aud Crown
granted at once. The two claims are
known as the Happy Medium and International and they adjoin the V. &
M. group.     A chute   of  clean ore has
been exposed for 100 feet on the surface
which gave $10.40 in gold and 670
ounces in silver.
Rumor that Shaughneset, Will  Get
Control 0* the K. ,c S.
There is a rumor afloat that Jim Hill
and Tom Shaughnessy have come to
an arrangement for a division of B. C.
territory by which the C. P. R. will
take over the K. & S. The rumor is
not altogether improbable. * Hill recently hot a piece of the Great Falls &
Canada road from Great Falls to
Shelby Junction for $750,000, and has
an option on another piece of the same
road from Shelby to the 49th parallel.
It is undsrstood that the C. P. R. is to
take over the G. F. & C north of the
boundary and that lhe whole road will
be made a standard gague. Also, that
the Great Northern will be allowed
running rights over the Canadian section of the road from the boundarv to
McLeod. The charter under which the
Crow's Nest was built allows running
rights to any road connecting with il,
and the Great Northern will take advantage of this clause to reach the coal
fields from McLeod.
Such an arrangemens would render
un-necessary the construction of the
Crow's Nest Southern, of which so
much was heard recently, and it is
more than likely that some _u��ch arrangement has been, or will be, reached
by the two big roads. It would not be
at all surprising to find the C. P. R.
coming out of the deal with possession
of the K. & S. and absolute control of
the Slocan, Lardeau and Lardo-Duncan
While such an arrangement would
convey an absolute monopoly to the
C. P. R. so far as this district is concerned, it would not be altogether unwelcome. The United States market
for lead ore is now practically shut off
and the K. & S. thereby ceases to be a
competing factor tor this freight and
also looses its value as a feeder for the
Great Northern. Added to this, it
furnishes one of the poorest services in
Canada and charges a passenger rate
of 7 cents a mile. The rate would he
lowered and the service improved .by
C. P. R. management.
Farewell at the Paqne.
E. W. Zwickey left on Saturday last
for Butte, Montana, from whence he
will go to Colorado Springs. On
Friday evening the band went out to
the Payne office and gave him a harmonious farewell. Several of the most
prominent business men and mine
managers of the city were present and
Mr. Zwickey certainly got a grand

��� j
By   Burt  A. Judd,   Hesperous,   Colo.,
in the Denver Post.
There has been all kinds of gush about
the man who is behind,
And   the man   behind  the cannon   has
been toasted, wined and dined.
There's  the man behind   the   musket,
and the man behind the fence;
And the man behind his whiskers, and
lhe man behind his rents;
And   the  man behind  the plow  beam,
and the man behind the hoe;
And  the man   behind lhe  ballott,  and
the man behind the dough;
And the man   behind the  counter, and
the man behind the hill;
And the man behind the pestle, and the
man behind the pill;
And  the man  behind the jimmy, and
the man behind the bars;
And the Johnny that goes swooping on
the stage behind the stars;
And the  man  behind   the  kisser,   and
the man behind the fist;
And the  girl   behind   the man   behind
the gun is on the list;
And the  man   behind   the  bottle,   and
when they were short of men,
There   was some  small rhymster  warbled off the man behind the pen;
But they missed one honest fellow, and
I'm raising of a kick;
They didn't make a mention ofthe man
oeh'md the pick.
Up the  rugged mountain   side a thousand feet he takes his way,
Or as far   into the   darkness   from  the
cheering light of day;
He is  shut out   from   the  sunlight,  in
the glimmering ofthe lamps;
He is  cut off from  the sweet air in the
sickly fumes and damps;
He must toil in   cramped   positions, he
must take his life in hand,
For he works in deadly   peril   that but
few can understand ;
But he does it  all   in   silence, and  he
seldom makes a kick,
Which is why I sing  the praises of the
man behind the pick.
He unlocks   the   bolted   portal   of the
mountain to the stores
Hid in Nature's   vast  exchequer in her
treasure house of ores.
He applies  the   key dynamic   and the
gates are hack ward rolled,
And the ancient rocks are riven to their
secret heart of gold.
Things of COlflfort and   of beauty and
of usefulness are mined,
By this brave and quiet worker ; he's a
friend of humankind.
Who, tho trampled  down   and  underpaid, toils on without a kick,
So I lift my  hat in   honor to   the man
behind the pick.
That's What the  Ball Game in Netc
Dcnccr Was.
Sandon's aggregation of freaks went
down to New Denver last Saturday to
play a return game of ball with the
lake dwellers. It was a great game.
Not exactly baseball, but a pretty gosid
burlesque. Denver had a sea-faring man
from somewhere who was going to
pitch���but he didn't dolt. His name
was Green. He threw lobs and rainbows, and the Sandon boys baited him
all over the pasture. In the second
innings Sandon made a procession of
twelve runs and then Willie Thompson
took the box, and for the rest of the
game it was better hall. Charlie Greenlee played left field for New Denver and
gobbled up everything that came his
way, but he had the star role all to
himself. No one else on the New
Denver side earned distinction.
Murphy pitched for Sandon and he
had an easy thing. He Was in particularly good form, and New Denver fans
couldn't hit a baloon with an oar.
Willie Richards wore the big mitt and
stopped everything that passed the
willow. The Sandon freaks did poor
fielding, all except Bailey, who made a
star double from second in the last
innings.    The players were :

SANDON, JUNE 15, iqoi.
The Nelson city council is still
scrapping about Sunday baseball. It
seems that the church element and the
street car company have formed an
alliance to suppress Sunday ball within
the city limits���for the glory of God
and a ten-cent fare.
The church people are forninst the
Sunday game on the same old basis.
Every one should have a religious feeling too deep to indulge in any other
enjoyment on Sunday than listening to
some talc-brained gospel shark pounding the pulpit and dealing out longdistance options on golden chariots and
jaspar-finished pedestals in the happy
hunting grounds, where pin-feathered
angels flutter around the golden streets
packing a harp or spend the moulting
season perched on a sun beam, their
mouths held agape from singing ceaseless hozzanahs until their physiognomies look like the Payne tunnel by
moonlight. If Nelson baseball players haven't been properly inoculated
with these religious superstitions during
their earlier days, or if they have drifted so far from the atmosphere of grace
that the seance no longer holds, then
Nelson church folks are going to imbue them with a proper reverence for
the cobwebby notions of blue-law
religionists, even if they have to inject
a hypodermic of police court justice
into the whole outfit to put them into
the required trance of respectability.
These bad ball players have simply got
to be good or the church element will
know why. Virtue is violent in the
city of Nelson.
The street car company is not a
religious institution, but its dividends
suffer by Sunday ball within the city
limits, too. The street car outfit has
a park out at the end of its track, and
if baseball fiends are not allowed to
play the game in the city they will
have to dig up a ten-cent fare to get
out to the park and another dime to
get back. This is a better graft, even,
than the exhorters have, for the street
car company's touch is systematic and
compulsory while the church rakeoff is
backed only by an appeal to prejudice.
But there is a bet on the layout
that the street car push overlooks. If,
with the aid of the street car influence,
the Lord's Day Alliance fanatics succeed is shutting off all innocent Sunday
recreations within the city limits, the
next turn will be to shut off Sunday
street cars. As an exchange of courtesy for the noble work done in the
cause of Christianity, tlie Nelson
Yerkes and Loweries will be gently
suppressed from doing business on the
Lord's day.
Then there will be no clamor
within the gates of the sanctimonious
city of Nelson, save the jangling of
church bells, the low discordant moan
of the forty-dollar church organ and
the shrill soprano screech of the choir,
while professional purveyors of prayer
earn their measly stipend by thanking
God that their congregation are not as
these wicked baseball cranks.
What a nice, clean, consistent,
moral, religious eommunitv Nelson is
g"ettinof to be.    Lead   them   not   into

The government of Canada should
own the telegraph. It should also
own the telephone and the cables,
Pacific and Atlantic.
The telegraph is the natural complement of the post office. It is solely
for the purpose of transferring information. It could be operated much
cheaper by the government than by a
private concern. The present exorbitant charges could be greatly reduced
by cutting off the enormous dividends
on watered stock and eliminating the
un-necessary expense of construction
and maintenance of duplicate lines.
Wages could be greatly increased by
combining the post office, telephone
office and telegraph office. Under the
present system each is run under
separate management, each paying
rent, and, in many rural communities,
each maintaining a staff sufficient to
operate the whole three. By adopting
a nickle-in-the-slot telephone it would
be possible for the business man to
send a dispatch from his own office to
any part of the world without even the
necessity of writing it. A messenger
service and a system of telegraph
stamps, similar to postage stamps,
could be used in the same way by
parties who did not have the telephone
in the house. The telegraph service
could be so cheapened that telegrams
would to an enormous extent take the
place of letters, which under the present
postal system are a slow, unsatisfactory
and antiquated system of transferring
The ownership of the Atlantic and
Pacific cables by the Dominion, or by
a coalition of the British, Canadian,
Australian, Indian and Hong Kong
governments would assure a release
from the present exorbitant cable rates.
A step in the right  direction   is being
made with regard to the Pacific cable.
The profits of some of these cable
and telegraph companies are stagger-
ing. Notwithstanding that the Com.
mercial Cable Company has been
watered beyond recognition, the stock
is earning heavier dividends than any
bank or railroad in Canada and is
standing at $ 188  a  share.    The  A

erican Telegraph &   Telephone Com-
pany met in New York   last week and
watered the   stock of that   corporation
by $50,000,000 at  one clatter, raising
the capitalization from  one hundred to
one hundred and fifty million.
The mere fact that a message
which costs 25 cents, and in some
cases 50 cents, over corporation-owned
Canadian wires, costs only 2 cents over
government-owned British wires, is
sufficient proof that the people of Canada are giving themselves a lot the
worst of it by not taking the business
over right away. Added to this, Canada has a news service that tor a
people of five million is a positive disgrace. Canada has always been ;i
lean-to on the United States in this
matter and Associated Press news with
a New York color is all that Canadian
newspapers have been able to dish up
in the way of British cables.
These and similar circumstances
lead such men as Henneaker Heaton,
Sanford Fleming and William Mulock
to believe that it is time for the government to take the business over. One
bv one the great newspapers of Canada
are coming round to it, and politicians
east and west are falling into line.
Mulock intends to give the matter
careful study while in Australia and,
with a sale majority at its back, the
Laurier government may take tlu4
matter up next session and make some
radical move.
It may surprise many in Canada to
know that action in this matter is so
close at hand, but it is nevertheless a
lively possibility that within a year
from now every man who touches the
wires in Canada will do business with
lightening-jerkers employed by the
Dominion government.
King EDWARD is out with a declaration that he will not become a

Suroci)8 Nearly Completed. A Thousand Ton Test to be Made of
the Dumps.
Surveys for the new works at the
Payne have been about completed. A
right of way for tlie survey line where
the flume will run is being cut thru the
bush along the creek bank.
A test of 1000 tons of roek from the
Payne dump will be made in
some one of the Slocan concentrators,
probably the Noble Five, to finally determine the values contained, and if
this is satisfactory arrangements will
be made immediately for the construction of lhe mill.
Ten men are employed at the mine,
mostly at timbering and keeping lhe
tunnels in shape.
If a   man's weak  spots  were  visible
vou would think he had the measles.
The Icanhoe.
Some overhauling was done 011 the
Ivanhoe mill this week. Ten men are
working at the mine. It is rumored
that the mill will be started up for a
short  run, but   nothing  definite can be
obtaiued from the management.
The Slocan Star.
The Star is running with a full tone
and the mill is making ore at a rate
that promises lo break all previous
records. The week's shipments from
the property totalled 186   tons.
The Last Chance
There is no change in the situation
at the Last Chance this week. Sixteen men are driving lhe Galena tunnel
ahead as rapidly as possible. No work
can be done in the upper workings as
the mine is still very wet. Manager
Heap has been sick tor a few days, but
is able to be out again.

Ore in Place on the MijHterious
In years past, when a mining man
wanted to wish for anything big, he
invariably wished that he could lind
the vein that the Wonderful oro came
Irom. No less than $40,000 worth sif
galena was taken out by ground sluicing, and it always has boon a stock expression that "the load is there some
place." Notwithstanding the abundance ot 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 boon aware nothing in the
nature of a well defined lead had ever
boon located. Tunnels, drifts and upraises wore run in all directions until a
blueprint of the property looks like the
web-work of a spider with a Slocan
jag on.
Recently a lease on tho proporv passed into the hands of W. W. Warner,
lie aUo holds a large block of slock,
bul tho stock is nol 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 first, which force has now
been increased to ton.
The fust work done on the property
under the Warner management was to
prospect on the surface, and two parallel veins wore located without much
trouble. The larger of the two ledges,
which is believed 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. *; tunnel which ex-
poded tS inches of clean sleel galena,
lu some places those 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 sif 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 tbe 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
laggin 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 neon taken out which are
now sacked ready for shipment. The
miners are al present doing their best
to fix up the timbers of the old workings, and when thev get matters
straightened out will open the drift
further along the vein and stope to the
Taking the same dip and angle, in
the N'o 4 tunnel the ledge was located
at about 400 foot from surface, and in
this tunnel also the showing was lagged
up and the tunnel swung off to the
left so that it ran away from the lodge
entirely. A short drift lo the right exposed some more hidden workings in
which a foot of carbonates and four
Feet of concentrating ore is showing.
Hero the ground is caving badly and
the present No. 4 workings may have
to bo abandoned altogether.
In the No 5, which is the lowest
tunnel sif 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 N'o. 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 1st of August and hopes then
lo 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
��>*roup. A contract for 200 foot sif tunnel will be let and work commenced
early next week Tho Canadian group

property operated in the vicinity of Sandon, but Mr. Brandon says ho does not
apprehend any difficulty in doing the
work as the snow has disappeared sufficiently for them to commence operations without inconvenience.

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. Tho
claims will be crown granted.
Tho Star is working full-handed and

Star Team Will Drill in Nelson.
While in Nelson last Saturday, Oscar
Y. 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 comers, and the other of $75 for
men who have not won a prize before.
With the first mentioned prize will go
