Hie Idea of a Miuing Convention
Meets   With   Approval,

Hubert F Green, our ropresentut'tve,
Ihorooghly indorses tho efforts of the
Sii.vkktonian, in agitating for a Minim.'
Convention for the Province. He called
nt the Sn.vEitii.NiAS office, when in town
this week. He did not think that many
alteratioiiB to the mining laws were
necessary, but that many good eugges-
tiuns would donbtless come up at a Convention. A sure result for the good
would he felt, at any rate, by the broad
ening influence tlio members of such a
convention would mutually exercise on
each other. He bad talked, he said, to
Bevcral mining men on tho subject, llnce
lie had seen the suggestion in tlie Siiweh-
TOMAN, and the majority endorsed tin'
i,|,. i. jV few expressed a f-ar that eoni,
too radical measures might bo forced in
thc convention.
In nt-iswer toaqiwi-tioii regartling the
anti-Chinese demonstration, made lat<>-
lv by the Sandon miners, he snid that he
condemned the action taken by the men,
while being in perfect sympathy with the
feeling Ihat prompted it. Tlie "wil I and
wooly" aspect given to the aff* r. by lb
edil is of some eastern papers, «VM ' "

City .Miners' Exchange, write- to OS on
ti, ■ Mil jectof a Convention, and snys.:
"An article appeared in poor Is-rOB o1
the 10th inst. with reference to holding n
convention of mining men to di»cu»J the
mininglawtol 11. C, and to Biggest some
of the much needed amendments 16 the
panic. I think such a convention Ol
competent men would have good r, tolls
and would bo the means of bringing owl
some good sugiiestiot-s from men thai
I, iv had experience with mining laws
in diirerent countries. There N one
eluise in particular, in the mining l*W»i
thu should bo amended or struck oul
altogether. It is tl.e system of paying
into tho Record Ollice, $100 in cash foi
sn nssess'i ent. True it is a good source
of revenue for the Government, hut it is
an injustice to the prospector and working man and checks thedcv-'lt-potneiit of
our mining indnstrv, enabling speculators to hold large tracts of our best mineral lands for years, without doing one
day's work on it."
' If prospectors ami mining men in
■."neral would keep up to the times, they
would have more unity among themselves anil discus) such matters more
frequently than they do. 1 think perbapl
a mining convention would be a step In
that direction.

Charles E. Hope of the Hope, Gravelly Co. of Vancouver, who nro operatim;
the Emily Edith mine, near here, said'
"l want to see two amendments mnde
to the Mineral jVct. One hy which a delimiting co-owner could be advertised
out of a claim and ono hy which the title
ol a fraction would be extended to cover
any contiguous ground, up to the limit
of a full claim, ou this ground
becoming vacant. On the whole, 1 think
our mining laws are good."

on account of their wet character, were
useless for farming purposes. By virtue of large canals and dredge ditches
these lands were all brought into market, and from them Mr. Glfford derived largo profits. Before selling out the
major portion of his laud ln Illinois he
planned nnd built a railway running
from West Lebanon, Ind., to Rantoul,
111., a distance of about seventy miles,
which was afterward sold to the Illinois Central ltnllroad Company, and la
now a part of that system. In this
. transaction Mr. Glfford made $250,000.
In 1892 he went to Jasper County, Indiana and began the purchase of lands.
This county bas been noted for Us
swamp. After a thorough examination
of the character of tho soil of these
swamp lands, and running levels to ascertain whether there was any outlet
for the water, Mr. Glfford began to
purchase land In this county, paying
from $5 to $25 per acre. He has continued to purchase until he ls now the
owner of approximately 33,000 acres of
land ln Jasper County, extending from
northwest to southeast a distance of
twenty miles. Nelson Morris, of Chicago, owns 20,000 acres adjoining Mr.
Glfford's land upon the north and running to the Kankakee River.
Mr. Glfford first excavated n system
of canals or dredge ditches of at least
100 miles In length at an Immense cost.
He has constructed 120 houses and
barns at an average cost of $000 each.
He has, within the last two yenrs,
taken off his land railway ties enough
to complete twenty-five to thirty miles
of railway. He has now commenced
the construction of a railway beginning
nbout two and one-half miles east of
De Motte station, on the Indiana, Illinois and Iowa Railway, running thence
southeasterly a distance of twenty
miles. This line, with the exception of
probably two miles, is wholly upon bis
own land. It crosses tbe Chicago aud

Eastern Illinois Railway at Knliuan
station. The presumption Is that eventually the road will be constructed on

Harper's Bazar says, "it is well to remember that if the wrists and the ankles
are warm, the rest of the body is not likely

out of fashion, but the muff and the long-
sleeved coat serve quite as good a purpose.
Few things, however, have been found to
take the place of leggings, which, if they
are of worsted, are apt to be awkward

Cleveland, O., Dec. 13.—While the
steamer Aurora was towing the barge Au-
rania through a big field of ice near Bar
Point, Lake Erie, fire broke out on the
Aurora and She had to be scuttled to prevent total destruction. She was the finest
wooden boat on the lakes, and was valued at $125,000. The fate of the crew is'

The change In this awamp region

Great Northern Mine.
Tlie Great Northern mine on Douglas
mountain is working two shifts of four

The management expects to ship soon.
A New Smelter.
Jay P. Graves writes   fvom   Montreal
tliat the subscription to the stock of the
smelter company which ho has just floated there to build reduction works for the
Knob Hill and   Old Ironsides   mines in
Greenwood camp, B. C, was oversubscribed over 1,000,000 shares.   The capit-liza-'j
tion is to be 1)00,000 shares.
The Red  Lion.
The Red Lion claim at Rock Cut, near
Bosshurg, is developing some good ore at
a depth of 70 feet.   Tlie ore is similar to
that found in the Little Giant, but not so
high in values, yet there is enough of the
yellow metal in the undetermined width
of the vein to make the ore  pay   under
economical treatment.
Cottng-e Grove -tinea.
The Black Butte mine near Cottage
Grove, Wash., is turning out quicksilver
at the rate of $30,000 per month. The
output will average a ton a day for the
year round, and the smelter has a mountain of cinnabar ore to draw on. A
smelter costing $66,000 was erected during the summer and commenced operations October 10th. The Black Butte
company is composed of J. Gamble, Capt
Ohilcott, J. E. Chilberg, W. Hastings and
J. Behrman.
The Zala, In Sheridan.
The whim is now in place on the Zala
M. mine in Sheridan camp, near Republic, and supplies are on hand for the winter. Sept. Snyder says the vein is widening all tlie time and values improving.
The camp has other good prospects that
will be heard from in the early spring,
amongst the principal claims being the
Polar Star group, Polar Fraction, American Flag, and Uncle Sam, all of which
have had some development, and the
spring will see them all working.
The Bonanaa Mine.
All of the machinery in the Bonanza
mine, near Bosshurg, 'has been placed and
the property is now producing from the
four levels reaching down to a depth of
nearly 600 feet all of 100 tons of shipping
ore each day. The recent fall of snow has
been of much benefit to the Bonanza mine
as the roads were so badly cut up by wagons that conveyance of the ore became almost impracticable. For the next three
months the ore will be transferred on
sleds, and in tlie spring it is probable that
a tramway will be built from the mine to
the railway station.
Large Caah Payment.
The largest payment of cash made to
any individual of New Denver, B. C, in
many months, was $13,000 paid on the j 000 per annum,
by the company represented by J. A.
Marks of Nelson to James Merino as the
final payment for his three-eighths interest in the California group of claims on
Silver mountain. The first payment, of
$4,000, was made about a year ago. Mr.
Merino is also interested in the Marion,
an adjoining claim, where they have a
strong ledge, carrying from four to eight
inches of galena ore. This property is
being worked by the owners, and it is
their intention to push work throughout
the winter, opening the mine for extensive operations.
The B. C. In Bonndary.
The famous "B. C." in tho Boundary
country, between Grand Forks and Greenwood, is under option to R. G. Edwards
Leckie, of Rossland. Mr. Leckie is representing in the deal the same interests that
control the Montreal Goldflelds, which
owns the Coxey and is operating the Gertrude in the Rossland camp. Clarence J.
McCuaig is understood to be one of the
principals most interested in the negotiations to secure the "B. C." A. H. Harrison and 10. E. Diehard, the owners of the
property, were In Rossland recently,
where negotiations were conducted. The
terms of the deal have not been stated,
but it must be a sum ranging in the hundreds of thousands. The "B. C." is one of
the best known properties in the Boundary country. It has an immense body
of copper ore, which carries small values
in gold.
A Rich Strike.
The First Shot mine, in Jefferson county, Mont., at the head of Rocker creek, is
owned and operated by County Attorney
Lyons and Sheriff Sherlock. Recently
they shipped several sacks, containing in
all 700 pounds, from the property, which
netted $1,160. They went to Butte with
a lot of samples, which they had assayed,
with the following results: twenty ounces
In gold, 1,104 ounces in silver, 65 per cent
lead, and a trace of copper; total value,
$1,146.00. They claim there is a large
amount of this ore in sight in the mine.
The lead is a wide one, and the width of
tho pay streak from which the above sample was taken is fully one foot. The First
Shot mine is located about three miles
north of the Eva May property.
The final payment of $40,000 on the
$110,000 bond on the Mollie Gibsci, near

Dr. S. H. Manly has purchased a full
half interest in the American Flag mine
at Sheridan camp, and his friends now
consider him to be one of the solid mining
men of the reservation. The ledge is four
feet wide and its values in gold alone run
from $40 to $150 per ton.
A public meeting of the citizens of Slocan City was held last week in the Arlington Hotel, to discuss the advisability

capitalists have associated themselves
with California men in developing a new
copper district, lying about 25 miles east
of Randsburg, Cal. The deepest shaft in
the district is 153 feet, and that, as well
as nearly forty others from 30 to 40 feet
deep, show an improvement in quantity
and quality of ore as work proceeds. Tlie
ores are red and black oxides, with a few
shafts showing green carbonates.

Iii the Central jail of Rangoon the British officials have introduced a method of
making the convicts work which is a very
effective mode of punishment. It is a
tread mill on a large scale. Big wooden
cylinders aliout seven feet in diameter
are provided with keen edged plank steps
all around, Above the eyhitlers at a convenient height there is a heavy iron pole,
stretching across the entire room, upon
which the chains of the convicts working
in the treadmill are fattened. When
they are all in their placet tlio bolt holding the cylinders in one position is removed and convicts must tread witliuut a stop
for two hours and a half, if one of tlicin
stops treading he slips down as far nc
the chain permits, but tlie plunk steps
beat against Ids shinboncs so vigorously
that the skin is bruised and scraped.
This is exceedingly painful, and the
convict hurriedly catches up the next step
and trise to tread along with the others.
This barbarous punishment is a necessity
however, for the natives are extremely
fanatical, and death has no terrors for
them. Imprisonment would Defor them a
favorite method of living a life of seclusion
and meditation, with no care for food or
lodging, were it not for the compulsory
work. The large shed containing the six
tread-mill cylinders is situated next to
shops where the power is used in woodworking machinery. About 70 convicts are
at work there at one time.

The increase of wealth has been prodigious since the time of our civil war, especially in America. When I was a boy
ony one who had $100,000 to his name was
considered fairly rich, but at present people think little of a trifle like that Even
in Europe, w here fortunes are gained much
less rapidly than with us, a property
must now be many times larger than in
the first half of the century before it begins to dazzle society. 1 suppose some of
you have read "Monte Cristo," and you
know that few things were too extravagant for the imagination of Alexander
Dumas. He meant that his romantic hero
should lead the whole world in magnificence, and probably thought of giving him
the biggest bank account ever heard of
But Monte Cristo was worth only a fraction of what several real men now living
can show. This was not the sort of mistake you would have expected from Dumas. It would have cost him only a
stroke of thc pen to multiply tlie hoard
in the Mediterranean island a hundred
times; but, although his novel was written when he was 40 years old, he could
not foresee that his fiction would be utterly distanced by solid facts before he died.

Trade Notea.
The Merchants' Association of New
York at a meeting determined to begin a
crusade to compel the express companies
to pay the war stamp tax.
The state department is informed that
the exports from Germany to the United
States during the quarter ending Septem-
br 30 amounted to $19,789,007, an increase
of $5,110,003 over the previous year.
During the year ended June 30, 1808,
Missouri produced 2,838,152 tons of coal,
an increase over the preceding year of
17 per cent. During the same time it produced 139,008 tons of sine and 73,087 tons
of lead.
Mr. Cotter estimates the hop crop of
1808, which is being marketed- through
Puyallup dealers, at 4,000 bales. At the
present prices this represents about $125,-
000. The fruit crop of 1898, including
that which is consumed by growers, measured by selling prices, will aggregate $30,-
000, antl will exceed rather than fall below that figure.
The monthly comparative statement
of government receipts and expenditures
shows that during the month of November receipts aggregated $38,900,915, as
compared with $43,303,005 for November
last year. In that*month, however, is included about $18,000,000 received on account of the Pacific railroad settlement.
Independent of these payments, receipts
exceeded those for November, 1897, by
about $13,500,000. Receipts from customs last month were $15,335,200, an increase of about $5,500,000; from internal
revenue sources, $21,330,743, an increase
of nearly $8,000,000. Disbursements during the last month amounted to $49,0*00,-
080, an increase on account of the war of
nearly $11,000,000. Since July receipts
have aggregated $204,557,083, as compared
with $148,113,875 for 1897.

Savannah, Ga., Dee. 12.—Colonel W. J.
Eryan, colonel of the Third Nebraska regiment, has either forwarded his resignation
to Washington or is about to do so. Of
this there seems to be no doubt. Today he
called ou General Lee, commander of the
Seventh corps, of which Colonel Bryan's
regiment is a part, and is understood to
bave announced his intention of quitting
the service. General Lee is to sail for
Cuba on the transport Panama tomorrow,
and Colonel Bryan is believed to have
hastened his decision in order that he may
acquaint his corps commander with his
intention prior to Lee's departure for the
island. Neither of the commanding generals would discuss the matter and referred to Colonel Bryan as the proper
source to get any news.
Colonel Bryan would neither deny nor
confirm the rumor, but stated that when
the time came 'he would prepare a written statement and give it to the press.
so that there would be no possibility of
anv misstatement as to his intention.

Washington, Dec. 13.—General Calixto
Garcia, the distinguished Cuban warrior
and leader, and the head of the commission elected by the Cuban assembly to
visit this country, died Sunday morning
shortly after 10 o'clock at the Hotel Raleigh, where the commission has its headquarters. The sudden change from the
warm climate of Cuba, with the hardships
lie hail there endured, to the wintry
weather of New York, was responsible for
the pneumonia which resulted in his demise. He contracted a slight cold in New
York which did not assume an alarming
stage until the early part of last week.
On Tuesday night General Garcia, in company with the other members of the commission, attended a dinner given in his
honor by General Miles, and it was ex-
jiosiire there that caused the disease
which culminated in his death.
The Funeral.
Washington, Dec. 13.—The funeral of
General Garcia will be held Wednesday
at St. Patrick's church, this city. 'Die
body will be placed in a metallic casket
nnd deposited in a vault at Arlington
pending removal to Cuba.
The Dolphin will be designated by the
navy department us the vessel to carry
the remains to Cuba. She is now lying
at the Washington navy yards.

Washington, Dec. 13.—General Miles
appeared yesterday before Uie house committee on military affairs for a hearing
relative to the proposed reorganization
and increase of the army.
Two bills for this purpose are pending,
one drawn by Miles and introduced in
the senate as tlie Hawley bill, and another introduced in the house by Chairman
Hull of the military committee.
lt is necessary now to consider both our
military requirements at home, those in
the new colonial possessions and also
those raised by the increasing demands
for our seacoast fortifications, says Miles.
When the entire increase in coast defense*
is completed 305 batteries would be required. These considerations, said Miles,
had led him to recommend a standard of
one soldier for one thousand of the population at home, with native troops on tiie
basis of two native soldiers for every 1000
of the population.

Seldom has it happened that a rattlesnake bite lias been sufficient to destroy
the reputation of a weather prophet. Rattlesnake Jack Mogan is known from one
end of Mojave desert to the other. An
eccentric sort of man, he likes to visit
the haunts of snakes, and often pitches
camp for the night in places which gila
monsters and rattlers have long pre-empted. Just before the recent election he
rounded himself up in Merced and began
talking of his adventures. It takes two
drinks to get Mogan's eloquence started.
The number of drinks that will bring him
to a full stop has never been ascertained,
although the health and fortunes of ths
entire San Joaquin valley would willingly
be gambled away to find out.
"'There is going to be a dry winter,"
he began. "There won't be enough rain
this season to give the wheat any sort of
a start; 'twill be worse nor it was last
year, which was a proper corker. How
do I knowt Why, 1 found that out by
the rattlesnakes. They know, you bet
When there is a dry winter coming the
rattlers, leastwise in Oalifomy, cannot -bo
coaxed to bite. I've w itched *em 25 years
now, and I know what I am talking
about. The snakes will not bite, and that
means we will have a winter as dry as
a bone."
None of his circle of listeners betrayed
any desire either to teat the accuracy of
his observations in natural history or to
question hia meteorological deductions
from the facts observed. He occupied an
impregnable position, and for a variety of
reasons, for some time; and the matter
was considered of sufficient interest to
cause the publication in San ooaquin valley papers of the statement tbat snakes
will not bite tuis year, and also the interpretation put upon the sign hy the snake
Since then tbe barometer and the local
weather forecasts have been watched with
a degree of attention calculated to awaken
tne approval of the United States weather
bureau. No one has been bitten by a
snake in thc valley since the prediction
wns first made, and this has brought into
contempt the doubters who have regularly
been saturating their systems with alcohol
in the fear that they might be bitten and
be taken unawares.

** ' they nre now held yearly. The first
of tiles'*! conventions held iii the
United States wis called by a few
leading mining men in Montana, ior
the purpose of devising means to
prevent the Northern Paciiio Kuilway
fi*om guiniug possession of mineral
lands under their ((rant, ft resulted
in what* is now known or the "Mineral
Land Cora mission", which is ruantained
idid supported by tho U. S. govern-
nieut. Tlie inoili! adopted by these
t'eiHlemeii in calling this convention
war, sending a letter to so:r.e prominent . mining man in each camp
requesting him to call n meeting of tin*
miners and those Intiii'ested in mtning;
to have the meeting send auoredited
delegates to the convention. The
number of delegates allowed each
district was fixed by them in accordance with tho namber of properties
working and its importune ■ as a
mining centre. If for no other reason
than that somo means should be
devised to make a delinquent co-owner
relinquish his interest _j ft claim on
which hf refuses or neglects to do his
share of the annua] assessment work;
thus forcing his partner to preform,
both shares, in tyslf protection, becoming "an old   man of  tin   sea" on hi- SfLVEBTON
more thrifty and enterprising co-owner. |	
Some law should be enacted in regard
to overlapping claims, to tbat thc
title of tint portion of a claim over-
hippe'.! would p.'iss to (lit-claim overlapping it, in cases where the overlapped claim became forfeited to the
Ciov.a through tbe failure of its
owner* tc do the annual assessment
work. In facta groat many things of
importance to the IP in ill a industry can
im brought up and discussed a1; »
