That Properly Examined—A Splendid
General Note*   of   Interest*  to   Kilning
Men   -oncernlniq- The Hlocan
Lake   Mine*.
So much has been taHted and written
lately about the now noted Bosun mine,
mostly by people who know nothing
about it. that we deem it of interest to
aur readers, to submit herewith an article
describing tho property, its surface and
underground workings complete up to
the present date.
The Bosun Mining Company owtiR and
openates the Tyro and Boatswain Fraction mineral claims, situated about half
way between Silverton and New Denver
and covering all tbe ground between the
Fidelity and this lake shore, thus having
plenty of room aud ground to enable
them to carry on active mining operations for years to come without interfere—
ingor being interfered with hv any
otiiside pnr!W. The location cf Ihe
property is ideal   for   mining purposes
The property wos first brought into
notice on the 10th. of June last, when
W. II. Sandiford the representative and
engineer of the North West Mining
Syndicate Ltd. of Kngland, who had
been watching the property for some
time aud whoso thorough knowledge of
the mini'.ig business satisfied him that
it was the making ol a mino, secured nn
option to purchase. Mr. . Sandiford nt
once put men to work on the property
with the result tliat within 'AO days Upvalue of the property hud been proven
up sulficently to justify the purchase
outright of the property, chich was done,
some |7.'-00. wall being paid to tin*
original owner. Work since that time,
has heen pusbod along systematically
and aa fast .as possible, the force bring
added to from time to time as room wan
nude in tho various workings Qpabling
miners to work ti an advantage. Tbe
company at the present time is working
a fotc** of __ man, with N. C. Dingni-ii
uh foreman.
The ledg-) is a tine fissure ve in in a
slate formation, the mineral strike being
north-easterly nnd south-westerly. The
vein pitches easterly into the mountain
atn pitch of about 5o degrees. Tliealste
formation in which this rain lies is the
nuns ulato form ition in which the bit;
mines of Sandon occur,
The workings at present consist of two
tunnels ami a shaft, -.-side* nunttaroua
bin-low opening*!, made for the purpose
of tracing the ledge. The shait, which
is sunk on tne lodge at a point 230 feet
from the Fidelity boundary line reached
a depth of 65   feet,   when  the  flow  of
lU/ir in the vein became such that the
management suspended sinking, as this
water andeliait will ba drainol hy tunnel No. 1, when a raise will be made'to
connect with the shaft, which will then
be used as au air 6haft. All ore extracted will be taken to the surface
tin mull this tunnel. In sinking this
shaft the ore came in near the surfnee as
a leather ft-go aud at a depth of ten foot
there was about two inches of clean ore.
It bas gradually widenod and in the
bottom shows up three feet wide of solid
clean, steel galena. Levels have been
started at the 50 foot and are now being
driven night and day. The ore body is
holding its width and value, in the
south drift being over 18 inches of clean
ore and tbe ledge showing itselt to be
Jour feet wide, and in the north drift tho
the dean ore being three fct't in width.
The amount of ore exposed aud blocked
out by the Workings at this shaft is more
than enough to pay for the cost of the
mine several times over. No stoping
has as yet been done, but the amount of
ore extracted in doing this actual developement work Is some 150 tons of
clean ore. Four car loads havo already
been shipped, tbe tifth car is completed
and but a few sac lu remain to be filled
to complete the sixth car from this shaft,
giving smelter returns of $100. per ton,
besides piling on the dump Irom 20 to 30
tons of good concentrating ore.
TuunelNo. lis 175 feet down the
hill, on tbe vein from the shaft, and will
have a depth of 85 feet, whon it strikes
below the shaft, whon an upraise will bo
driven *nd connections made. When
this work is completed stoping will be
commenced. This tunnel is driven on
the ledge, which is shown to be from
four to five feet wide aud well mineral-
ir.edbutasyetnot!lean ore has been
oncontered. The manage men. however
expects to strike the ore shute «P°*»««
in the shaft at a distance In of about 100
feet. This tunnel is now in M ,«•«•
At the mouth of this tunnel preparations
are being made for o.o bins and ofe
sorters quarters.
Tunnel No. 2 is still further down the
hill on the vein being below the shaft
400 feet, surface measurement, and will
gain a depth, by the time it reaches the
shaft of 170 feet. This tunnel is now in
130 feet and is being driven on the vein
showing it to be as strong, well defined
and iu place, as in tunnel No.l. The
first part of this tunnel is a cross-cut,
the ledge being struck at a distance of
35 feet in, und from that point it follows
the vein. The flrBt part of this tunnel,
after striking the vein, is running
through ths top of what is undoubtedly
a big ore shute and «ome very fine oro
Ims been taken out. This ore shute will
have to be tapped from below o worked
by means of a shaft. The altitude of
these workings Is ubout tiOO feet above
the lake, and no doubt the vein will be
traced down to and a tunnel driven from
the lake shore.
The Bosun Company has built on tho
property at the lake shore a commodious ore dock, at whiuh tho CPU boats
call and take on ore whenever a carload
Is ready. The company has just completed a good waggon road from the
mine to the wharf and ore is delivered
at a cost of ninety cents a ton. This
road like the wharf is the private property and on tho grounds ol the. com pan v,
At the mouth of No. 2 tunnel will he situated the company's buildings which
tue being erected. Extensive preparations are heid^ made for ore bins and all
oilier necessary buildings and before tlu*
snow flies the management expects to
have everything iu tliape for pushing
work all wiuter.
The timbering for tho workings shows
that the manngemeut calculate ou ihe
permanency of tbe mine and no expense
nr trouble Is being spared in having the
buildings substantially built ami the
mine systematically opened up.
It is very [yrtunate for the Slocan ilia''
tbis mine has fallen into such goodliands
as it bus, The Bosun Company i* composed of a number of English capitalists
organized for the purpose ol carrying on
of mining enterprises and mining rs a
legitimate business, avoiding all wild"
catting and stock manipulating as much
as po-iiiible. Mr. Sandiford, who has
personal charge of the property, in their
representative in this country and lias
bait world wide ex'Kuieni-ein the handling and opuroJinji of nitnua, coming to
this country from Bervla, wln-rj he had
charge of a hi;* concentrating proposition.
Upon (ouiing to British Columbia to rep-
resent this uompany, Mr. Sandiford was
siicce-ditd in Servia by his son. lt is
owing to his training nml his thorough
knowlege of the mining biuiiess tliat
enabled him to grasp the possibilities of
this property.
The contract for the Comstock Concentrator has been let, ground bos been
broken, mechanics and supplies are on
the spot and work will lie pnshod. Mr.
Mitchell, who will erect the plant, hos
had considerable experience in the
erection of mills through tho Slocan
reeion. so it will not be long before the
Comstock mill will be pounding away on
Four Mile ores.

Silverton's Nuisance
Ground was sometime ago located np the
Alpha trail, and it was not at all suitable
for that purpose as tho ground sloped
towards and was near Four Mile Creek'
and in consequence the wash therefrom
would pollute tho water therein, which
is used by many for household purposes,
and might be predudical to the health ol
the community. This location has, I am
informed, been recently changed to one
near the lake on the bed ol the old channel of Four Milo creek. This does net
seem to be a change for the better. The
wash therefrom will bo carried into the
lake a very short distance north nf the
town (and the Lake flows south) and
close tQ the place where Silvertoninns
havo been in the habit of going into the
Lake to bathe. Unless when (aaislhe
ease atpiesent} the Four Mile creek i-t
unusually low, its water is always running over this old be'l where it is proposed to dump tho filth nnd refuse of the
community, which will in conseipience
be carried to and deposited in Slocnn
Luke near tho town. Could not a more
suitable place bo selected for this purpose? I think it would be diflicult to
select a h'f-n* unsuitable placo.

New York, Sept 19—The following
dispatch has been received at the Associated Press Office:
Manila, Sept. 19.—The Filipino government desires to inform the American
government and people thut thc many
rumors circulated regarding the strained *|
relations between the Filipino and American forces arc base, malicious slanders of
an enemy of both parties; are without
trutli and are circulated for the purpose
of prejudicing tlie appeal of the Filipinos
for release from the oppression and cruelty of Spain.
The relations of our people and yours
have been and will continue of the most
friendly nature, and we have withdrawn
our forces from the suburbs of Manila as
additional evidence of our confidence in
the great American republic.
Will Take No Chance*.
Washington, Sept. 19.—The Associated
Press dispatch conveying Aguinaldo's
message to the .American people was regarded with much interest at the White
The president read the statement with
evident appreciation of its importance,
but did not volunteer any information as
to the attitude of the government. -
Officials near him speak of the message
as "a very important document." While
the officials do not care to discuss thc
matter for publication, it wus evident the
main source of their satisfaction waa the
internal evidence contained in the document that Aguinaldo had profited by the
warnings of the American commanders
and gracefully receded from the arrogant
attitude assumed by him just before Merritt left Manila for Paris.
In connection with the sending of fresh
troops to the Philippines, mention may be
made of the fact that the battleships
Iowa and Oregon are to go to Manila as
quickly as possible, and mechanics are
working night and day to get them ready
for the long voyage. Vessels of this kind
are needed to keep the Philippine insurgents in order and their assembling at
Manila in conjunction with the dispatch
of heavy reinforcements of troops for the
American land forces can not but be regarded aa significant.
In well informed circles here it is seen
the real purpose of the president in milking these preparations is to insure the
peace commissioners against any interference in the work of disposing of thc
future of the Philippines according ti
their best judgment. Not having disclosed his plans in respect to the islands
outside of Luzon, the seat of the capital
of the group, tbe president reserves for
the American peace commissioners the
right to dispose of the remainder of the
islands as tbey may deem best. ,
Germany'* Bad Move*.
A long line of curious incidents to.
which one of the great European powers
has been a party has beyond question
done much to cause a feeling of uneasiness on the part of the administration as
tending to show a purpose to interfere in
our free uction in the Philippines, and
these have only been slightly diminished
by an apparently frank disclaimer of any
ulterior purpose, because the incidents
continue to occur quietly and in a manner calculated to avoid attracting atteu
tion. Sueh for instance is the gathering
of naval vessels to the south of the Philippines, the only explanation of which is
a purpose of acquiring either by seizure
or by some secret compact with the Spanish government, the important island uf
It ia gathered that it is the purpose of
the president to prevent the alienation by
Spain of any of the Philippine group, and
these preparations, naval as well as military, are but a step toward the execution
of this purpose. With the addition to the
fleet of the two battleships, we will have
a force only second to that of Great Brit-
•in in eastern waters, while on shore Otis
will have a more numerous army than
any European power save Russia.
pressions of national sympathy with him
in his great bereavement. In the course
of the rescript, his majesty laments that
an enemy to all social society ih blind
and purposeless hate, struck a heart
which knew not hate and beat only for
"Among the unmeasured grief by
which I and my house are stricken and
in the presence of the unheard-of deed
which has Bent a shudder through tlie
whole civilized world, the voice of my
beloved people first brings balm to my
heart in affecting unison with the resound of universal lamentation for our
immeasurable loss, like a faithful echo
of all that moves my own soul. From
my deeply sorrowing heart, I thank all
for this new pledge of devoted sympathy. If the festive peals which should
have greeted this year ahould remain
dumb, there yet remains to me the memory of innumerable proofs of loyalty and
deep sympathy, the most precious gift
which could have been bestowed upon
"Our common grief weaves a new and
intimate bond between the throne and
the fatherland."
A New Order la Founded.
Another imperial rescript founds a new
order, and medals of St. Elizabeth, in
memory of the deceased, will be conferred
upon women and girls meriting distinction bi the various avocations oi life or
in special religious, humanitarian and
philanthropic work.
The emperor is invested with the sole
right of conferring the order, which
comprises three degrees, with a grand
cross for the first and second classes,
bearing an enameled picture of St. Elizabeth of Thuringia.
The first recipient of the order was
Countess Szcarpay, who has received an
autograph letter from the emperor conferring upon her the grand cross of the
order in recognition of her devoted services to the dead empress in her last moments.

New York, Sept, 19.—A dispatch from
Paris says:
Paris is quiet outwardly. There seems
to be a sense of relief because a revision
has virtually been determined on. But
there is a great commotion among the
chiefs of the army. They undoubtedly
have the disposition, if not the courage,
to try to prevent a revision at the eleventh
hour by a military coup d'etat.
M. Cavaignac, who resigned lately as
minister of war and who has cast his lot
unreservedly with the army, is pointed to
as a possible dictator, but public sentiment will be a most effective bar against
such designs. It has veered around completely in favor of revision and justice,
which everywhere is recognized now except by a couple of anti-Dreyfus organs.
Esterhazy's promised confession ( is
awaited with the keenest curiosity,
though no one will believe a word he says
unless he is supported by independent
Jules Perries, a leading member of the
French bar, comments upon the present
legal status of the Dreyfus cose as follows:
"Judicially, the ministerial decision to refer the case to an examining committee of
three decides nothing in the light of recent events. The committee's findings
will determine whether there shall be a
revision or not. The decision is only important particularly in that it reveals and
approves the sentiment of the country in
favor of a revision."

Administration Decides to Mix Reg-
'nlara  With  Volunteer*.
Chicago, Sept 19. — A special from
Washington says:
The war department is now engaged in
making plans for thc occupation of Cuba
by United States forces. The preliminary
steps to this effect have already been
taken, and thc plan of the campaign will
be rapidly worked out. It has already
been decided to have a full army corps in
Cuba. The corps will be composed of
both regular and volunteer troops. It
was at first thought that the army of
occupation would be composed entirely of
volunteers, but the war department considers it advisable to have a few regiments of regulars included. This will give
the volunteer forces the benefit of the
regulars' experience, and in a very short
time they will become seasoned and experienced troops.
Just what troops will take part in the
occupation of Cuba has not yet been decided, but the splendid condition and situation for such an expedition of General
Lee's command, the Seventh army corps,
at Jacksonville, makes it seem probable
that a great portion of the volunteer
troops will be taken from that corps, if
this is done three Illinois regiments who
are in Lee's command will be sent to
Cuba —the Second, Fourth and Ninth.
The army of occupation will be distributed over a greater portion of the island.
Garrisons will be established in most of
the larger towns, and will be maintained
until a definite Cuban policy is determined upon.
The commissary and quartermaster's
departments are now perfecting plans for

Enough snips ure not now on hand to accomplish this, but by the time that the
army of occupation is ready to move both

Before final plans for the occupation of
Cuba ore agreed upon, the war department will wait for the report of the Cu

Louisville, Sept. 19.—Following is on
epitome of the yellow fever situation in
the south as it existed Saturday:
President Souchin of the Louisiana
board of health reported a genuine case
of yellow fever in the city of New Orleans. The case is that of Mallory
Kennedy, son of Dr. T. S. Kennedy. The
patient,is on the rood to recovery.
The board of health uas proclaimed a
quarantine against New Orleans. Freight
and passenger traffic will be carried on
under the regulations of the Atlantic
The state of Mississippi has also quarantined against New Orleans.
Inspector Jiarrietson telegraphed the
Jackson health authorities aa follows
from that city: "Many cases of yellow
fever here. Believe it will be officially
announced today er tonight."
The situation at Jackson is quiet. No
new cases were reported. About half
tne population remains in the city. Two
new cases were reported at or wood and
one at Taylor's. They are all doing well
at both places, the health authorities
have declared an unconditional quarantine against New Orleans and issued orders to all Texas quarantine stations to
allow no passenger or freight trains to
enter the state from New Orleans until
further orders.
with a cocked revolver, chased Miss Ef-
fle Worcester for a block, firing three
shots at her, but the young woman ran
into a saloon and eluded the murderer.
He ran through the saloon into the
Great Eastern hotel, here he snapped his
revolver twice at Mrs. Johnson, the proprietor's wife.
Young is an employe of the 0. R. k N.
He was talking witu Mrs. Worcester and
her daughter Eflie at the depot when
Cunningham, crazed by drink, > ew out
his revolver and commenced firing at the
group. Young was shot through tho
heart and died almost instantly. Cunningham then turned on Mrs. Worcester
and shot her in the small of the back,
inflicting a dangerous wound. Miss
Worcester started to run up Main street,
when Cunningham fired three snots at
her, none of which struck her. , With
the empty pistol he kept on snapping
u.e trigger repeatedly until they came
to the Last Chance saloon, a block
away. A man standing in the saloon
door called to her to come inside, which
she did, darting under a billiard' table
for refuge from her bloodthirsty pursuer.
Councilman Mitchell, George Reading
and several others came up and Reading
grappled tho murderer. Both fell to the
ground, Reading holding Cunningham's
pistol hand as they struggled. Officer
Speer ran up and by mistake struck
Reading on the head with a heavy cane.
Cunningham was finally landed ih the
county jail. He could not say how he
cume to do it. He seemed dazed and
not entirely accountable. He has been
often in court here charged with selling
liquor without a license at Milton. Citizens are much enraged at his dastardly
deed and threaten to lynch him. • The
otlicers are nervous over these threats.
The physicians doubt the recovery ot
Mrs. Worcester, whose condition is serious. She is the wife of a well known
mining man.

London, Sept. 19.—David Christie
Murray publishes in a morning paper a
story regarding the Dreyfus affair. The
author vouches for the trutli of the story
but declares he can not disclose the source
from which he obtained his information.
The article states in part that Dreyfus
was engaged as a spy. in the employ of
a secret department of the French army
against those suspected of trafficking
with Germany and other (lowers. His
zeal, so tbe story goes, led him to become
the victim of revenge on the part of
Colonel Henry, Count Esterhazy and
Colonel I'aty du Clam, who themselves
were concerned in the treasonable practices.
Burned Hia  Store to Convince Him.
McConnellsville, Ohio, Sept 10.—A terrible fire broke out in the business part
of thia city this morning in the ware-
rooms owned by C. L. Barker. The warehouse was destroyed and much property
damaged, but by great efforts the court
house and adjoining buildings were saved.
As McConnellsville votes on waterworks today and Barker was a leader of
the opposition the fire has caused quite
a sensation. Some claim that incenduries
are to blame.

New York, Sept. 19.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Valparaiso says:
Argentina's circular note instructing her
representatives abroad to deny the rumors in connection with her differences
with Chile, and to state that she is not
hostile to the general plan of arbitration
proposed by Chile, has not caused a cessation nf the preparations of Chile to
meet any emergency. The note is regarded as a trick designed to allure the bankers to place a new loan in Europe for
war purposes. As evidence of this, it is
pointed out that Argentina is pushing
lu?r war preparations harder than ever, in
spite of such peaceful declarations.

Ready to Leave.
San Juan de Puerto Rico, Sept. 19.—
The final preparations for the embarkation of the Spanish troops are reported
to be complete, although the American
commissioners have not been officially advised to that effect
Two ships of tbe Campania Trans-At-
lantica are expected to arrive here on the
20th inst. Five vessels will be required
to transport all the baggage and field
artillery and equipment. The Puerto
Rican troops are to be landed near Cadiz.
The United States commissioners have
agreed that such troops as desire to remain here may do so, and especially all
tbe volunteers and some of the regulars
whose families and interests are here will
remain. If the neceeaary ships were here
the island could be evacuated and formally in our possession within three days.
The AmericarTcommissioners are highly gratified with the spirit shown by the
Spaniards. The unexpected has happened. Where it was expected that opposition and delay would be encountered, in
good fnith the Spanish commissioners
have met the Americans and arranged
with them the terms of evacuation. Our
commissioners expect to see the American
Hag hoisted and the Spanish flag hauled
down forever within three weeks.

Washington, Sept. 19.—Major General/
Bates and Summer, who were prominent
in the Santiago campaign, reported at tho

which is contemplated for the distribution
of troops.
It is almost settled that Shafter will

Such is his desire. Meet of the officers

London, Sept. 19.—Three or four black
thunder clouds arc overhanging the po*
litical horizon of Europe. The Dreyfus,
Cretan and Egyptian questions have become more acute and it is difficult at
present to forecast the outcome in either case. An indication of the activity in
the official world is found in the fact
thut the Marquis of Salisbury, who went
for a quiet holiday to take the waters
of Centerville, has had a special telegraph office established at his hotel this
week in order to deal with the mass of
official telegrams pouring in aud out. It
is expected that the British premier has
ordered that the most stringent measures be taken at Candia, where British
troops were recently fired upon by mus-
sidmans, thc execution of which only
awuits the airival of sufficient reinforcements of her majesty's soldiers, who
now number 2000 there, while another
battalion is on its way to Candia from
Egypt. The most recent advices tend
to show that the powers are disposed to
give Great Britain a free hand to obtain
reparation foi the massacre of Christians
and the insult to British arms. Admiral Noel, the British naval commander
of Cretan w*aters, has arranged with the
other admirals for the immediate withdrawal of tbe military contingent-. Tho
British squadron now before Candia is
powerful enough to raze that place in a
few hours. The Turkish authorities at
Oandia are playing their old gume of
surrendering a number of nobodies as the
ringleaders of the mo-sacrers, while a
number of beys, who are known to be the
real instigators of the trouble, are still
at liberty and are likely to remain so until considerable further pressure is
brought, to bear upon the Turks.

would seem to offer more than an ordinary inducement to investors. A gentleman who is thoroughly posted on mining wus in the camp a few duys *>ince,
and says:
"There is no doubt about the future
of Empire's mines. The ledges are there
plenty of them, und the ores cany exceptional values. Like all other camps,
the owners of prospects either arc afraid
of their muscles or their money. 'J hey
are too sparing of each either for their
own good or that of the country. If the
owners would display half the activity in
developing some of their ledges that they
did in making and setting sUkei, thero
would undoubtedly have been more than
one mine in camp ere this. What tlie
cuinp mo9t needs at this time is the id-
fusion of new blood. This must come before there will be great material progress
in the shape of development. There aro
a few holders who while probably not burdened by wealth have some energy, and
spare muscle, and are now using it til
some purpose.
"There are some excellent showings in
the camp. Among those thut are mere

"After prospecting over a large uvea of

operated with a sluice it would pay about
$5 per day to each man working. At a
conservative estimate the ground will pay
30 cents per cubic yard from top to bottom. The gravel contains few boulders
of any great size. It is loose enough to
ground sluice advantageously.
"I am putting in a bedrock flume and
have reached a depth of nine (set, but
am not on bedrock. So far I have ground
sluiced only, but as soon aa I get the upper end of the flume to bedrock I shall
put in a hydraulic plant. Thc ground is
topographically well adapted to that style
of mining. The creek has considerable
fall, affording excellent f.nilities fur
dumping, with no possibility of hindrance
from tailings. By constructing a few
hundreds yards of ditch or laying pipe, a
fall of 200 feet can be obtained, which
will bc ample to move the gravel rapidly.
Mo t\ S. Surveyor Needed.
A decision of the secretary of the interior has been received at the land office
on motion for review of the commissioner's decision of April 10, 1898, in the case
of W. D. McPadden et al. v«. the Mountain View Mining k Milling Company.
The plaintiffs filed an adverse claim in
the local lund office, which was rejected
for reasons (1) that it was not evidenced
in manner prescribed by the rules of the
department; (2) plat of adverse claim
was not made by a deputy United States
mineral surveyor; (3) no showing as to
value and ownership of labor and improvements upon the claims us required
by the rules of the department. These
'objections were sustained by the commissioner of the general land office. The
secretary of the interior now overrules
the decision and holds that the adverse as
presented at the local land office by 'McPadden was sufficient and that it was not
necessary for a deputy Unted States mineral surveyor to make survey and plat
whicli was filed with the adverse.
The secretary follows the decision in
thc case of Anchor et al. vs. Howe et al.,
60th Federal Reporter, 300.
The secretary further holds that rules
made by the commissioner of the general
land office can not bc binding when said
rules exceed the scope of the law, therefore tho rule requiring that a deputy
United States mineral surveyor shall
make plat and survey for an adverse
claim is not binding and does not have
the force and effect of law.
Viral Buffalo Hump Deal.
A Spokane man took the first bond on
one of thc promising claims in thc Buffalo Hump district of Idaho, where tho
recent exciting stampede took place, Thc
claim is tho Hob-ion's Choice, and II. M.
Glidden gets the property for $33,333. The
deal  was consummated in Florence last
munuger, W. H. Wolf, that the output
would be $1000 per day us long us ore
like that now being crushed can lie supplied. The uupply seems to be beyond
estimate from present developments.
I.iirue Mineral Patent.
Jacob Goetz appeared lust week and
filed at the land ollice final proof for probably the largest contiguous body of mineral hind ever patented in the state of
Washington. The property is the famc
Foot group, sometimes called tho Frankfurt, comprising 11 claims as follows:
Ijhiiio Foot, lion Mountain, Holyoke,
Miners' Delight, Luke Shore, Curlew, En*
tcrprise, W. J. Bryan, Sunset, Portland
and Lucky Boy. The claims are on the
west side of Curlew lake on the reservation. They include 151 ueres and th.)
cush paid for the lund alone was *7.Vi.
The cost of the surveyor general's plats
alone waa $300.
The property is a low grade proposition.
On the Lame Foot a solid body of ore
100 feet wide luu-> been opened up. Over
$10,000 has been expended in development. A compressor plant is on the property. Transportation is necessary More
the mine can become profitable.

The observatory, which originally stood

tne~Greut Northern railroad, the dorai-
nating factor in the reorganization of
the system und have guined for Chicago
and the northwest what is practically
a trunk line from occun to ocean, controlled by Chicago capital.
Mr. Beam engineered the deal by
which his wealth, that of Mr. Hill and
of Messrs. Armour and Field gained a
controlling interest in the Baltimore k
Ohio, which henceforth is to be a Chicago enterprise, fed and ( sustained in
transcontinental affairs by the immense
■lineage of the Great Northern railroad.
If any road completes the gup between
the terminus of the Orcut Northern railroad in St. Paul und the terminus pf the
Baltimore & Ohio in Chicago, it will be
the Chicago Great Western road, but
that is a matter for the future.
Mr. Beam will become a member of
..e executive committee of the reorganized road 'ind either Mr. Field or Mr. Armour inny become a director, although in
all probability the trio will be represented by Mr. Ileum.
Mr. Bill's connection with the transaction foreshadows the statement that he
will  be the prime factor of thc road.
While the price paid by the Chicago
men is not known the details of the
transfer of Ihe properties of the road are
being discussed at a conference held in
the Auditorium annex. At this conference President Hill, Mr. Ream, John K.
Cowen, president of tho Baltimore k
Ohio, and Oscar Murray, receiver, and
William Greene, general manager of the
road, were present.
Mr. Beam declined to bc interviewed,
but one of the Baltimore k Ohio officials
confirmed tne report current in Wall
street Thursday and in Chicago railroad
circles that in addition to the holdings
of thc roud w hieh the Rockefellers' interests are reported to have secured last
week for western backers of the road,
Messrs. Field, Armour und Beam had secured sufficient reorganization stock to
make Chicago and the west uie dominant
dement in the future management of
the road.
President Cowen was not prepared to
make S full statement until after he had
consulted with Mr. Henm.
President Hill wus In a jubilant frame
of mind and would not deny that Field,
Armour and Ream had assisted him in
1 almost realizing his dream of having a
roml from the Pacific to the Atlantic
controlled by western men.

The opinion of Major General Joseph
Wheeler that the war is not over and
that Spain will refuse to give up the
Philippines until forced to do so is shared by many nrmy officers and by members of the cabinet.
President McKinley iB not an optimist as lo thc continuance of peace and he
has insisted that the war department

service until the pence commissioners
have succeeded in drafting a satisfactory
treaty or have failed in this effort.
The president has been importuned by
senators, congressmen and governors to
muster out particular regiments, but he
has put his foot down and said that the
wur depuifluent shall muintain sufficient
troops to bo ready for any emergency,
even that of resuming hostilities, in the
event of failure to agree upon a settlement of the Philippine question.
To an Ohio delegation that called at
the White house a few days ago to urge
the muster out of another Ohio regiment
the president stated his position very
clearly. lie told them he had little
confidence in the peace negotiation*!
with Spain except as they were backed
up by the determination of this government to enforce all its demands and be
ready to do this by resuming hostilities
on short notice.
\u Confldrnce In Simln.
The president's experience in seeking
to settle the controversy with Spain
without retorting to war lias not given
hint nor his advisers much confidence in
Spain when diplomacy is the method <>f
reaching a settlement. Spain is a master of that kind of diplomacy which
means delay, and, while she sought
terms of peace when her fleets were destroyed and her army at Santiago surrendered, she has done nothing as yet
to propare for thc consummation of her
There bas been no preparation made
for the evacuation of Cuba, and there
are indications that the.Spanish commissioners in Cuba will attempt to drag
In many other questions besides the
plain and simple one of evacuation. The
American commissioners in Cuba have
been instructed to hold to this as the only question for settlement there and
leave all other questions to the peuee
commissioners in Puris.
The president bos the best of reqsons
in the action of the cortes for doubting
his ability to secure a final peace without at least lieing ready to resume hostilities,     lie has therefore impressed upon
his importunate callers that he can not
muster out all of the volunteer army,
but must keep a sufficient number    of
troops in readiness to enforce   his   demands.     He must be ready to throw a
large body of troops into Cuba again at
short notice and he must be ready    to
send re-enforeeinents to   the   Philippines
to show Spnin thut he is just as determined now to have a prompt und definite acceptance of his terms of peace as
he was when he went to wur.
Ti-rin* of fence.
The terms of peace have    been   laid
down, and they are explicit as to Cuba
and  Puerto  P.ico.      There  i9 only  one
question thut is not definite about thc
Philippines, and that is as to just what
part of the itsiunds this government proposes to place under the American flag.
That is to be the purpose of the peace
commissioners.     They are to say whether S|>ain shall release all or only a part of
the islands.      Hut this question    must
bo settled  apart from  the Cuban question.     The evacuation of Cuba will not
be allowed lo have any bearing upon the
Philippines, though it is apparent that
the Spaniards are again trying to    get
round  to  that old  diplomatic    position
of   surrendering Cuba and retaining   u
large part of the Philippines.
Mull Be Hinily  to IIkIiI.
The president has told some of his congressional callers in the last few days
that with such a condition und with the
uncertainty of the Spanish churucter, he
is not justified in assuming that thc war
iB over and mustering out the volunteers, lie bus stated to some of these
cullers just what General Wheeler stated
in a public interview, that the wur is
not over, but is likely to be resumed in
a few months unless the Spanish politicians show a better disposition toward
permanent peace by providing for the release of territory as agreed upon in the
terms of peace.
At least one of the peace commissioners shares this suspicion and doubts the
ability of the two commissions to agree
upon any proposition concerning thc
Philippines. The American commissioners will insist upon retaining at least the
island of Luson, if not the whole group,
and thc Spanish commissioners will not
dure, in the present state of public
opinion in Spain, to agree to cither of
these propositions. it is therefore feared that the negotiations of the pence
commissioners will bc long drawn out
and finally come to naught unless the
president stands ready to break off thc
negotiations and resume hostilities.
This is the reason why President Mi
Kinlcy does not intend to muster out the
whole volunteer army. He bus no de-
Bire to resume the war and renew thc
sacrifices of blood and treasure, but he
intends to ha*vc peace, definite and final,
within a few months if he has to fight
for it nnd again order the army and thc
navy into active service. The volunteers who are compluining that they do
not want garrison duty may find that
they will have something more exciting
in the literal expulsion of thc 8|*nnish
troops from Cuba  nnd  Puerto Rieo, or
even the invasion of Spain to enforce the
old rule of dictating peace in tbe capital
of the enemy.

In another column will ba fonnd a
letter from A. B. C. which points out
a $tate pf affairs -estaliiished in onr
midst tliat calls for some sort cf nn
explanation. Al-out two months ago
our citizer 8 were served with notices
respecting tho sanitary condition of
their premises and ordering certain
changes. A scavenger was nlso
appointed for the town. Since that
time the scavenger has not been seen
in the place and had thn notices been
regarded it is quite probable that an
epidemic would have been raging here.
This week we are informed, tho scavenger has again made his appearance
and as is eeon by A. B. O's letter a
garbage dump has been selected. The
change in the location of ibis place
was made, we understand, for the convenience pf the scavenger and he is
the only one who has been consulted
as to tbe change. The site chosen is
practically in the middle of oar town-
site, on the lots of private individuals
who were not consulted or even advised of the use to which our; zealous
officials intend to put their property.
Not one single citizen was consulted
in anyway regarding this proceeding
and the convenience of our friend, the
■scavenger, was the only excuse given
for the establishing of this peat breeding garbage dump in our town, within
five hundred yards of the business
blocks and in such a paaitioi as to
contaminate both the lake front and
the waters of Four Mile creek. We
would like to know by what authority
the lands of individuals can
summarily seized and why he conveniences of a scavenger, wh > is ,|ot
even a citizen of our town, should be
regarded of greater weight than the
wishes and the health of
Silverton has always been free from
typhoid fever and bas always ittended
