George Ransom of the Payne went
to Kaslo Tuesday to clear thru the customs the two Durkee electric drills which
are to be used in hurrying thru the No.
8 tunnel on the Payne, The drills with
operating appliances cost the company
$1,600. They were made in Colorado
and are of same pattern as those used
with so much success in the big
Georgetown tunnel in that state.
The Famous Property has a Showing of Ore Neoer Excelled in its
Many Improoetnents at the Dunsmuir Property.
In one of the handsome windows at
Hunter-Kendrick Go's store surrounded
by dainty creations of ladies wear, arranged so prettily, by that past master
in window dressing, Fred. Ritchie,
may be seen a numbr of photographic
works of art representing Sheep Creek
Falls, Rossland, with Trail in the distance, and a group of the mines that
have made Rossland famous. These
scenes are of the highest type of photographic art work and are from the
studio of Carpenter & Co. of Rossland.
These photographic gems are the property of our townsman Mr. Wood.
Some rather extensive improvements
are contemplated at the Noble Five and
work has already commenced. A new
upper terminal station for the tramway
will be built and ore sheds, tool sheds,
powder houses, etc., constructed as an
annex thereto. A new bunk house,
office and dining room is also contemplated. The Five is at the present
handicapped by the lack of proper accomodation for the miners. At present
half the force is working thru the No.
3 tunnel of the Last Chance. The men
boarding at the Noble Five bunk house
are O'Neill's gang employed on contract in the A tunnel, where they are
driving to strike the Chance vein below
where it is being opened up thru the
Chance No. 3. This crosscut is now
about due and may break into the
ledge any day soon. More men will
then be put on to drift, raise and sink,
and the crew in No. 3 will also be added to as a winze and raise is on the
program there.
The ore shipped from the No. 3 tunnel is the finest character of rock found
on the Noble Five ground, giving returns of four hundred ounces and running very heavy in lead.
The best news to the Noble Five
stockholders, however, is from the
Maude E. claim, which runs right to
the divide and laps over onto the McGuigan side. Since the Bird Fraction
strike was made Geo. B. MacDonald
has been paying particular attention to
the Maude E. The Bird Fraction
ledge has been traced across the Maud
E. ground and opened up in many
places with shallow cuts, showing
everywhere clean ore and carbonates.
This ledge can be opened up with
depth very readily by a tunnel already
in on the Maud E. ground and Manager Macdonald is in noway enthusiastic
when he predicts that the Maud E. will
place the Five on the dividend-paying
list, free from all incumbrances within
a year.
The famous Reco property now has
a showing of ore larger, better and
richer than anything ever before opened
np on the Reco-Goodenough ledge;
which, by the way, is a pretty large
The Reco is opened up by four tunnels, numbered 2, 4, 6 and 8. From
the 2 and 4 the rich ore which made
the Reco famous as a producer of the
higest grade galena in the world was
taken. One shipment of this ore, by
the way, returned the company $17,000
for one carload of 17 tons. The ground
betweed 6 an 8 is still untouched, beyond developing it with a raise and an
intermediate tunnel. This raise, like
the No. 8 crosscut, is on the line between the Reco and Goodenough properties. At 130 feet below the No 8 the
intermediate is run to the right and left.
On the Reco this drift runs for 120 feet
thru one of the most valuable ore chutes
euer exposed in a Slocan mine. The
ore shows quantities of ruby silver and
gray copper and carries very heavy lead
values. The chute is in some places two
feet wide and averages 8 inches for the
full length ofthe chute. That is to
say, there is a chute of ore 120 fetet
long, 130 feet deep and 8 inches wide,
which, considering the high returns received on Reco ore, represents an
enormous value.
This ore chute continues on the
Goodenough ground and has been op
ened up for 60 or 70 feet. From the
stope regular shipments have been
made all summer, but will now be discontinued until the rawhiding season
sets in.
Below in the No. 8 the vein is also
being opened to the right and left and
the showing continues.
At the mouth of No 8 a new tunnel
house, ore bin, blacksmith shop and
stable has just been completed and
when everything is in shape all the ore
will ba ttken out thru the No. 8.
On the Texas claim of the Reco
group a beautiful strike of steel galena
was made a few days ago. Six inches
of the very finest clean ore was broken
into and contractors are now opening
up the chute with most satisfactory results.
The Reco and Goodenough, as before
stated, are operated in conjunction by a
tunnel dpiven on the line between the
two properties. St. Alamo Davis is
acting as foreman on the Reco and
Tom Jones, who has followed silver
mining in all its dips, spurs and angles
from the Comstock north, is directing
affairs at the Goodenough. There are
25 men on the Reco and 15 at the
The Finest and Most Expensioe
Minning Tunnel in British Columbia.
The big tunnel on the Last Chance,
which is now nearing the Galena ledge
is being watched with eager interest by
the mining fraternity of the Slocan. It
represents the mosl formidable effort at
deep mining that has ever been undertaken in the camp. The Galena tunnel is a continuation ofthe No. 4 tunnel
of the Last Chance and is being driven
in to tap the Galena vein, a vertical
ledge to the Chance, at 1000 feet vertical depth.
This tunnel is now crowding 1800
feet in length. It is 8 feet in the clear,
built for a double track and high enuf
for the tallest miner in the province to
walk in without being able to touch the
roof with his hands. It is driven thru
lime and granite, the hardest formation
in the Slocan, and hundreds of feet of
it stand without a timber of any kind.
Two shifts have been at work at it for
many months, making an average time
of 5 feet a day. Twelve five-foot holes
are put in on every shift with the Ingersoll drill. Thirty-seven and a half
pounds of 40 per cent powder are used
at every blast. The tunnel is as
dry as a powder house and for a long
distance the floor is as clean as a kitchen Lable. The grade is five inches
to 100 feet, especially adapted for the
use of motors when the time comes and
the engineering and mining is so perfect that looking back from the face
daylight shows in an exact square at
the tunnel mouth.
In the last twenty feet a belt of slate
and schist has been broken into and
stringers of quartz are coming into the
tunnel carrying quantities of water.
All this is taken to indicate that the
ledge is near at hand and the announcement may be expected any day
that the Galena vein has been opened.
Then for a new era of development in
the Slocan.
Shipping the Seoenth Car of Ore
from a Hole 40 feet Deep.
The Summit and Bird Fraction,
which was recently opened up by .-\lex
Smith of the Surprise mine is proving
a bigger bananza than even the glowing accounts of a month ago indicated.
The hole is now down nearly 40 feet
and shows 2 }4 feet of clean steel galena
and carbonates. The seventh car of
ore is now being shipped from the
ground, and the returns so far received
will return the whole outlay with many
thousand dollars already in sight.
With depth the Summit and Bird Fraction may outrival the Payne in its
palmiest days.

London's new paper, The Father (the
name is old enough), publishes this on
"The Balance of Power":
You Uke some 8tate*,not less than three;
Well call them A and B and C���
Not Km* in, France or Germany,
But each a simple letter.
Supposing A should buy a gun,
Then B m-i.it purchase more than one;
And C, wh > cannot be outdone,
Will go a cannon better.
Now A, if not entirely mad, (
Another gun or so must add,
As many ��s the others had,
Until lie overtops them;
And B a�� *i C will order more,
Exactly aa they did before,
And lay up implements of war
Til.' .. k ot money stops them.
For this ��*** che Balance of Power,
Humanity's loveliest flower;
If we' wre not afraid
Of the puns we have made
We should all be at war in an hour.
The war clouds may threaten and lower,
But never will break in a shower,
For we haven't the cash
To do anything rash,
Upsetting the Balance of Power.
Then B, on some convenient day.
Will make a secret league with A,
In which they practically sav,
They'll ��ro for C together;
The secret, being one of State,
Is certain to evaporate,
And C may ��oon anticipate
Extremely sultry weather.
So C his neighbors will fatigue
With patriotic base intrigue.
Until he mah es a secret league
With each of both the others;
So any two to fight are loath,
Because -he third is bound hy oath,
To fight against and for them both
A.; enemies and brothers.
And this is the Balance of Power,
Diplomacy's climax and flower;
If we did not surmise
We were all telling lies
We should all be at war in an hour.
The war clouds may threaten and lower,
But never will break in a shower,
For you cannot depend
On a foe or a friend
When it comes to the Balance of Power.
A writer iu a New York magazine tells what he endeavored to
learn about corsets. He got inquisitive and took a day off to satisfy his curiosity on the question.
This is the way he tells about it,
and it might be said right here that
he is not the first man who has
mastered the subject in a^ brief
space of time:
"With this subject in ray mind,
I dropped into the office of my
friend, Dr. Pulvis, one day, and
talked to bim ahout it. Doc knows
a whole lot about such things, (and
thinks he knowr a trifle more), so
I told him what I had been reading, and asked bis opinion of it. In
reply, he said: 'Well, sir, those
articles are all right; I've read
them myself, and I endorse every
word of them. The corset has certainly done a great deal of harm.
The women are, as a rule, convinced that intemperance is the
great curse of the country, but I
doubt if it has done as much injury
as the corset. However, it is not
an unmixed evil,  for it has un
doubtedly done much to make the
practice of medicine profitable, although, at the same time it has
helped to deprive us of some of our
" ' How is that,' I inquired.
"' Well, if you notice, we have
very few obstetrical cases now.
The couples who marry nowadays
don't raise such families as were
raised in our grandfather's days;
some have one child, some two,
and many none at all. The young
ladies are as willing and anxious as
ever to marry, but, as a rule, they
are just as anxious to avoid maternity; their excuse is, the great
danger attending it; and, it does
seem to be more dangerous than
formerly, and the corset is, mainly
the cause of it.'
11' But, our grandmothers wore
them, didn't they?' I suggested.
" 'I guess they did; and their
daughters, too, and the present
generation is suffering for it.'
" I remembered that there are
said to be two sides to all questions,
and to learn something of the other
side of this, I concluded to call upon my married sister and discuss
the subject. A fellow ought to be
able to rely on what his sister tells
him,'and Annie has worn corsets
long enough to know something
about them, so I went hopefully to
her and asked:
" 'Annie, why do you wear corsets? '
Her reply was very encouraging
and stimulating: ' Why do I wear
corsets? What a question; why do
I wear dresses, stupid ?'
'"Because it's the fashion, I
suppose," I replied. 'But that
isn't exactly answering my question.'
'"Well, I could do without a
dress about as well as I could do
without a corset.'
" 'But all women don't wear
them, do they?'
"' Yes, all except a few cranks
and dowdies. Anyhow, you men
don't have to trouble your heads
alwut it; you don't have to wear
" No, thank the���well, that is
one of the luxuries monopolized by
the fair sex; but, now, honest,
Annie, don't you believe you'd be
better off without them?'
" 'Oh, I don't know. I suppose if
they all quit wearing them we'd
get along somehow; but who wants
to go flopping around like a 'slom-
ucky slouch?' That's what I'd
look and feel like without a corset.'
" 'Well, it certainly can't make
| you feel very good to be squeezed
up in a tight corset.'
" 'Thank you, I don't lace.'
"'Of course not By the way,
what made you faint in church thai
Sunday night?'
" 'Why, the heat, of course; you
don't suppose my corsets had anything to do with it, do you ?'
" 'Oh, I don't know, I have
heard it said that they do sometimes cause women to faint.'
" 'Well, mine don't. I don't
pinch myself in like that fool Fanny
Bowers.   She sleeps in hers.'
Seeing that Annie was about to
lose her temper, I changed the subject, and inquired after the health
of jln. Wilson, a friend of hers,
who has been in the doctor's care
for some time.
" 'She isn't any better, poor
thing; the doctor says she'll have
to submit to an operation.'
"'What for?' I inquired.
" 'Oh, female trouble, and I'm
afraid she can't stand it, and I hear
of so many women dying after
those operations that it scares me.'
" 'Um, a dangerous business.
Does she wear corsets?'
" 'Why, of course she does.
What's that got to do with it V she
replied, with more warmth than
appears necessary.
" 4Oh, nothing, I suppose,
though I heard a doctor say that if
the women would quit wearing
corsets, there would not be so
much of this 'female trouble,'but
I don't know anything about it.'
" 'No, I guess not; nor the doctors either. They are always picking at the poor women about something. I think it's a shame! They
had better attend to their own
" 'Maybe they think it is some
of their business; most of their
patronage appeal's to come from the
women, and thoso who make a specialty of female diseases, I notice,
are always busy.'
" 'The more reason why they
should keep their mouths shut, and
not go around abusing the people
who support them.' And Annie
broke the conversation by leaving
the room to look after something
in the kitchen.
" I picked up a ladies' magazine
I saw on the table, and, idly turning the leaves, I found scattered
through the advertising pages many
attractive cuts of corsets of various
makes and patterns; most of them
are shown enclosing the waists of
good looking, and partly undressed
young (always young) ladies, with
waxdoll faces, and hair clawed up
and touseled in the most stylish
manner, having nicely rounded,
boneless arms, and enormous pro-

Mother put on her Sunday beet,
Her lilac wedding-gown,
And white-strew bonnet neatly tied
With strings of faded brown;
We woke before the roosters crowed
And started in the dew
To see the boat race, for our Jim
Was captain of the crew.
You see, six olive branchet. came
To bless our honest love-
Five slumber in the churchyard green
With little stones above:
But one was left in mother's arms-
Stern death was kind to him,
The roundest of our tiny flock,
The sturdy baby, Jim.
He took it in his curly head
To want a college course;
I parted with the pasture lot
And sold the sorrel horse
We sent him every dollar saved,
And made a seedy pair
In garments that had long outlived
Their days of useful wear.
We dill not want to shame our boy
And so kept out of sight
Behind a row of waving *H��cr��
And fluttering kerchiefs white,
But when the slender skulls swept by
The rival crews abreast
We both forgot our shabby clothes
And shouted with the rest.
The surging throng closed up in front,
We could not see our son,
But soon a mighty cheer went up
And told uh Jim had won.
The crowd took up the college yell
And sent it to the skies,
And college colors everywhere
Shook out their brilliant dyes.
He stepped ashore, looked up and saw
His mother's wrinkled face,
Ard hurriel to her through ihe ranks
Of broadcloth, silk and luce,
li*- never irave a Single glance
Toward the pretty girls,
But lai.>��ed lier on the withered lips,
And kissed her silver curls.
His sunburnt face was glorified
With proud nnd happy smiles;
H<- diil not mind hiM-mta* her bat
Was years behind tbe style*,
But led her out before bis friends,
A figure quaint and prim
In stiff, nld-iaehinned lilac silk���

���Milltta living, in Leslie's Weekly.
To Adam in his great transgression
there came a prophetic voice declaring
he should he doomed to earn his bread
by the sweat of his brow. Phe bounteous gifts of Nature were in future to be
cared for, nursed and cultivated. His
whole life was now to become one of
solicitude and activity, and even then
when his best skill hud been bestowed
on the means of living, ho was to see it
mayhap swept away by tbe storm to
perish by drought or be devoured by
the locusts, and stand amid the ruins of
his labor an humbled and impotent man.
That decree of Heaven, which was to
be so literally fulfilled to Adam, has
followed hia descendants down through
all the ages and as populations and
manufactures increase this anathema is
becoming more decided in its prediction
and more emphatic as a living necessity. The alliance that exists between
Capital and Labor is the closest tie of
interdependence that binds the human
Capital is refined as being the accumulated savings of labor and the profits
arising from the savings of labor; it is
the essential of progress, and hence
every industrial pursuit demands an
application of ItB resources in the development of labor.
Labor is of two forms, forced or voluntary; the forced being that which
holds humanity ai a slave or in a state
of serfdom    In the days of Roman
power it was considered a source of
wealth to be possessed of slaves and
serfs, and some of the work erected by
such labor standi today as historic
monuments that are the surprise and
admiration of the world.   Voluntary
labor is evolved from the gradual liberty that arose from the cultivation of
trades, and the mechauical demands on
skilled labor.   The workmen became
isolated individuals, into many professions, thus disrupting the common
basis of labor and diverting the minds
into various channels of production, so
that (he labor of today is an offer of
skill on the market for a consideration
of value to be compensated for by an
exchange of money or other goods of
equal value.
Within the last half century great
and fierce struggles have taken place
in the labor world.   Capital has withheld from the workmen their fair share
of profits in their combined production,
until forced  to  surrender.   Labor on
the other hand has assumed the aggressive, frequently with violence and gross
injustice.   The power of education has
become more universal and the bitter
strifes that were formerly attendant on
disputes have now been relegated to
tne arena of reason and forbearance,
and calm judgment now reigns in the
debate that may take ptace between
master and man in that which affects
their  mutual   well-being.   The  social
tatus of the workman has been enhanced by the Increased va'ue of his
labor; his home surroundings are improved in proportion, the hours of oper
ation have been lessened, affording him
opportunities of study  or  recreation,
technical   institutions  invite  him  to
������hare the privileges aud advantages of
knowledge bearing  on his particular
profession.   By this means the gulf has
been narrowed, and now the steady and
attentive workman has the confidence
and  respect   of his  employer.    The
workman's life is not invaded by bad
debts or commercial failures; he presents his skill In the market and sells to
the highest bidder, and when his labor
ceases so does his responsibility    Not
���0 with the employer.   His life is full
of anxious thoughts of the past and
future���of contracts that will fail to
meet expenditure, of required material
increased in value, of debtors of whose
payments there are doubts, and other
delays and worries that tend to shrivel
life and sharpen the temper.   And when
we ask the question: "What is the matter with the boss?" little we know of
the weary hours our employer has suffered on matters that affect our welfare
as much as his own.   Struggling and
battling with adverse circumstances is
the lot of many capitalists, and when
we consider that not 10 per cent, of those
who embark in business succeed, how
slow  we are to realize the effect of
failure on a heroic spirit who has fought
and failed, and how miserable we are
in withholding the mantle of charity or
the sympathetic  word     Many  have
been the methods adopted to solve the
great problem of how be*jt to govern
the relations of Capital and Labor.
The Workmen's Compensation Act
has come to the front with rapid strides
and vet  the   workman   clamors   for
amendments, until capitalists protest
against the injustice warred on enterprise, and the serious danger that
threatens the life of industry. .Our law-
courts bear emphatic evidence of the
claims made by workmen even where
the plaintiff has had the erection of the
work and suffered by his own want of
skill or precaution; yet in the face of
contributary negligence he has the
hardihood to drag his employer into
court for an accident for which he is
alone to blame On the other band
some employer! are anxious to rush
contracts on the motto "Time Is money"
that they ignore the common elements
of safety, and when accidents occur
through this cause it is but just that the
law step in and punish the carelessness
that endangers tbe life of any workman.
We have trades-unionism aa another
means to an end. The law permits men
to combine and conspire for their own
welfare, but when you take thought of
the coercive measures adopted by this
form of society it cannot accomplish
much. For instance, two men serve an
apprenticeship to a trade; one is a master of his craft, and the other a slow,
poor workman. Yet his union demands
that his pay equal his superior fellow-
workman. Now we contend that this
is a double edged injustice���first, on his
employer, and next on his brother
workman, and society will never in this
age of reason tend to smooth the friction
that roust naturally arise from such un
just demands.
The nearest approach to the solution
of the labor question is the principle of
profit-sharing. It reduces production
to a community ot interests: it places
the employer on his integrity; watchfulness is superseded by confidence; sel
Hshness is uprooted by justice, and the
true recognition of worth is established
by the simple act of co-partnership.
The workman becomes imbued with a
spirit of economy; his work is transposed into a labor of love; all the nobler
feelings of his nature are called into
action; a new era has dawned upon his
life. He labors to save, to promote, to
invent; in a word he is a partner with a
financial interest that he is compelled
to respect. He is consulted in the
affairs of the firm, and feels a pardonable pride when his advice takes practical form. Firms under such a ruling
are generally successful.
There iB another form of solution to
tlie labor question, which is now universally preached���the gospel of Socialism The great difficulty with it is that
not two advocates of its doctrines agree
as to its application. From Carl Max,
with all the intervening apostles, down
to Henry George, each seems to have a
remedy entirely of his own thinking.
Some seem to aim at the re-modelling
of society, some to disrupt society, and
not a few labor to produce a state of
chaos Bellamy, in his wonderful book
"Looking Backward," wants society to
hold the goods of society for the wants
of society. A very pretty theory, and
admirably conceived and written; but
we would ask: "Where would individual
genius and talent be relegated to?" Is
it human to work for mere applause?
Is the feeling of independence to be
crushed out of the human soul ? The
spirit of inquiry and invention would
be hushed in the world; individual
enterprise and effort would be blocked
by the feeling that personal reward for
labor expended would be an unknown
quantity, and tbe cry of "Am I my
brothers keeper?" would be stifled in
the death struggles of civil strife. If
Socialism is to be the cure-all of all ths
antagonisms of society as present constituted, it must corns in a more peaceful and acceptable form.���J. M. Dixon,
in the Canadian Engineer.
A recent decree of the Russian Government prohibits foreign ownership of
mining claims or other property in the
Pacific Maritime Province, the Island
of Sakhalin and other islands along the
Pacific Coast of Siberia. This covers
an extent of over 4,000 miles of coast,
reaching from Bering Straits to Vladivostok. At various points along ths
coast sold deposits are already being
worked by foreign capital, while the
petrolenm wells on the Island of Sakhalin are practically a foreign enterprise.
The law does not in so many words refer to the foreigner, and the whole
measure seems to be dictated by reasons
of coast defence, and to be a regulation
similar to that which forbids a foreigner
to hold land in the neighborhood of the
Russian frontiers. As special permissions have already been accorded to
certaiti foreigners to work the mineral
wealth of this region, and much foreign
capital has been invested one way or
another in that country without the
necessary permit,a considerable amount
of loss will result from the new law.
Aa foreigners must enter all such undertakings subject to Russian law, they
will have no redress for any loss they
may experience from the decree. The
position of affaire in China, and possible
complications in the east, are doubtless
the motives for the new decree. It ia
hard to see, however, how the conduct
of mining enterprises on or near ths
coast could prove dangerous in case of
In this year, when so many] different
attempts are being made to reach the
Pole, jt is interesting to learn the most
extraordinary  plan  yet suggested to
accomplish  that object    A tunnel is
the method proposed by Captain Louis
Launnette,   formerly   of the French
navy.    Captain   Launnette's   idea is
that of building a tunnel of closely
cemented ice blocks and lighting it
with electricity he could establish a
route to the Pole perfectly protected
from the elements and available for
travel at all times, with bases of supply
at convenient intervals, an abundance
of dogs for traction and constant communication throughout its entire length.
He has proposed to travel overland
to some  point in  Alaska,  whence a
vessel designed for Artie waters would
sail with the expedition to a point already selected by Captain Launnette���
a point as far north as it is safe to navigate.   Thence during the short summer
the expedition would be rushea over
the border of the region of perpetual
ice, where the main base of supplies
would be established.   Then the icemen
and laborers would unpack their tools
and set to work at the tunnel road to
the North Pole.   It is proposed to have
an ice floor, ice walls and an ice roof.���
