Last Tuesday E. Bammelmeyer, of
Rossland, arrived In Silverton, accompanied by M. Newman, J. Anderson, J.
Strom, W. Kiel and A. Johnson,miners,
and it wm soon learned that work would
begin at once on the Emily Edith. No
time was lost in purchasing provisions
end making other arrangements preparatory to an early start for the mine
the following morning.
No trouble wee experienced In making
the ascent to the mine, and six men
are et present engaged in development
work, and the force will be gradually
increased from time to time as fast as
room can be made for tbem, and work
will be carried on without any let np
until the property la thoroughly developed.
Work on this property will lie watched
with keen interest by mining men in
general, as some very high grade ore
baa been encountered, and the claim is
looked .upon a* one of the promising
propertiee io this mineral belt.
Mr. Bemmelmeyer baa become quite
heavily interested in mining property
around 8ilv*rton, having acquired interacts in the Silverton Boy, Silver Standard, Giant, W. II. B. and several other
promising properties besides the Emily
Edith, nnd he Intends opening op
all of ell them during Uie present year.
He is a thorough mining man and aa he
has ample capital at hla command, he
dees not intend that any property which
he acquires title to shall remain undeveloped. - Mr. Bammelmeyer has
shown bis faith in Silverton'* mineral
resources by backing up his judgment
by already investing large sums money
in purchasing properties, and no doubt
to thus doing, will be the direct cause ot
bringing other capitalist* this way who
will atoo aid let the devetoresee* -ol
valuable propertiee.

which the package is directed for examination as to the liability of contents
to customs duty. On arrival ol the
packages the postal officer must affix to
each parcel a red label with bis memorandum thereon directing bow the parcel is to be dealt with by the customs.
In 54 places, chiefly In Manitoba, the
North West Territoritles and British
Columbia, postmasters are authorised to
collect customs duties on postal packages. Duties, however, to bo collected
at the s points must first be assessed at
the nearest part or subport.
On Tuesday of this week four men
who had been employed for some time
in Kazan's camp on the Crow's  Nest
Railway made application to the government agent here (or food and lodging.
They stated  that they were destitute.
They had been working on the railway
for eome.time, but found from month to
month that they  were getting deeper
into debt with the contractor.    Questioned M to how that could be, they said
that though they wers being paid tl 60
per day, they had to pay $4-60 per week
for board, and this with the charges for
necessary articles of wearing apparel,
and the number ol days they were idle
during the month, they could  not get
square with their employer.   The men
were (ed and lodged over  night iu the
jail.   The following morning tbey were
given breakfast, and took the road for
Goat river, hoping thus to reach West
Kootenay  where  they   thought  tbey
might obtain employment.   Tbeee men
were all stout fellows who looked capable and willing to do a full day'a work.
The fact is becoming apparent that when
the press of work on the  Crow's Nest
Railway begins to slacken some thousands of men without means of subsii-
tence will be thrown upon the charity of

Work wm started this week on the
TexM Boy Fraction. A tunnel will be

E. J. Field, Into manager of the Wonderful mine, la quoted by the Sandon
Review, as saving; "There is no limit
to the amount of good to be accomplished by intelligent organization on the
part of mining men such aa la contemplated by the Northwest Mining Association. There must be complete aud
hearty co-operation between the mine-
owners and employee, to that each wid
feel that the benefits resulting to them
are commensurate with the outlay involved oo their part. To be effectual
such a plan should embrace an efficient
and hospital service, which could be
maintained by the diversion to the association's treasury ol the monthly payments ol one dollar which are now being
collected from the wcge-earner and paid
to outside hospitals lor service which In
many instances are far from satisfactory.
Life and accident insurance, to be furnished at actual coat to members of the
association, would follow in doe course
and an endowment (nnd should be established for those who may pass a certain age limit, and inch employee ae
may be permanently disabled while engaged In mining. Such an organisation
can readily secure proper and needed
legislation for the benefit of IU members. Legislation cot*Id be reduced to a
minimum and an effectual stop placed
upon the absorption A mineral lands
by railroads and otlier corporations."
The new regulation t governing the
treatment ol peckagea and parcels arriving .in Canada through pottofiioes
went into effect on January 1st. Heretofore all such packages have been sent

to whether obstaolei were being placed
in the way ot corporation* of the United
States operating in Canadian territory.
Hesars investigation shows that such is
not the case; the laws are the eaine for

been recently passed by the provincial
parliament requiring an official representative of the foreign corporation to

Thirty Killed and the List cf  Wounded
Fully One Hundred and Fifty.
Last Monday evening a large crowd
xathered at the city hall in London,
Ont., to Helen to the successful as well as
the unsuccessful municipal candidates.
The hall was old, but wm auppoted to be
sound, though it had not been used for
some time. As the meet ing progressed
the tremendous audience became enthused and indulged in a good deal ol
applauding of candidates by stamping
of the feet, which it is supposed to have
loosened the beams, and at 9 o'clock
part ol the tfoor over the city engineer's
office gave may, and a couple ot hundred
people were precipitated into the room
below, where on them large beams fell,
and, worse than all, the massive iron safe
and a steam coil, which crushed and
pinned scores ol unfortunate people.
The scene in the hall wm indescribable. People went half road trying to
get out. The cry of fire started, and
the police and firemen were quickly on
the spot, and as sooo as the horrible
situation wm realised the services ol
both were used in carrying the dead and
wounded to the hospitals. Large crowds
gathered in the streets, where the contusion and excitement was terrible, nobody knowing who might not be among
the dead or injured, who were not all
secured for two hours.
It le claimed that those instantly
killed will number fully thirty persons,
while the number of wounded is close
to a 160, many of whom cannot
recover from their injuries.

Rowland, Jan. 5.—Oapt Wm. Hall,
the superintendent of the Le Roi, wm
killed nt 6:20 thia evening by falling
down the wain shaft from the surface
to the 600-foot level. The body wm
terribly injured by the fall, and the
remains were hardly recognizable.
The captain went underground
about 4 o'clock this afternoon on his
usual inspection of the mine. Arriving at the 600-foot level safely, he
examined the progress being made
io extending the shaft to the 700-foot
level, and subsequently made a tour
through the west drift at the 600-foot
level. He then climbed into the west
skip and wm raised to the surface.
A moment later he stepped off the
skip. What happened then will never
be exactly known. The only witness
was the engineer on the duty at the
time. He Mys that instead of getting
off on the floor of the shaft house
Oapt Hall stepped upon a ten-inch
beam that separated the compartments. He evidently slipped aod
was precipitated dowo the mine
nearly 700 feet The body is southed
beyond recognition. Au inquest will
be held.
According to the New Denver's correspondent to the Spokesman-Review,
tho Vancouver mine of Silverton is
shipping more ore at the present time
than all the other mines combined
throughout the Slocan division—350 tons

he may be, apparently has but little regard for the truth, a« tbe Vancouver la

860 tons Per day.

value thao the rush to it of adventurers who hope to reap where they
have not sown. The following testimony from an outsider will sufficiently
convey the fact thnt the mine-owners
of. the Slocan are not idle,
"Although one hears much less talk
about the Slocan country thia year
than formerly,! bad rather take my
chances io that rid. mineral country
than in the much boomed Klondyke,"
remarked W. A 0. Weymouth, a
mining man of Portland, who has
just returned from a long stay iu the
"There is more work going on io
the Slocan mines nnd prospects this
year thao ever before,1' continued Mr,
Weymouth, "although the towns scattered through the Kootenay hills are
undoubtedly quiet and business is not
nearly so good as it was a year ago.
Thia is no doubt due to the fact that
the floating population is so much
smaller. There is no Ihnger a rush to
the Kootenay ot prospectors and adventurer*. Those who go have business there, and matters are consequently settling down to a solid basis.
A great many mines will pay hand
some dividends to their owners this
season, and taking all io all, I regard
the great silver belt that stretches
north from Ainsworth to Sandon aa
the best mining country on the
American  continent."—Kootenaiau.
only 10,168 tons having been produced in 1896, whereas the output in
1863 wm 210,000 tons. Flint mining
still survives at Brandon, in Suffolk;
the produce of a few shallow mines
worked in a most primitive fashion
suffices to supply the gradually diminishing demand for gun flints, which
are exported to savage countries.
Referring to gold ore, the report
points out that compared with the
yield of the colonies and many coon-
tries the amount 'fit gold obtained in
Britain ia insignificant; neverthelen
mineral vein* in North Wales have
from time to time furnished considerable quantities of rich, auriferous
quart*. Io 1896 the five mines in
Merionethshire produced 2,706 tone
of ore, from which 1,351 J ounces ot
gold, having a value of £5,035, were
obtained. This, however, is a much
lower output than that of the previous year. The principal iron-producing districts at the present time
are Cleveland in North Yorkshire,
yielding over 5,000,000 tons annually,
and Cumberland and North Lancashire, with an output of over 2,000,-
000 tons. The Cleveland ore is an
earthy carbonate, containing about 30
per cent of metal, while the red
hematite of the two other counties
yields 60 to 60 per cent The total
quantity of iron ore obtained from
the mines and quarries last year was
12,500,000 tons.—Mining Critic,
An account ot the quantity and
values ot the minerals obtained from
tho mines, quarries, blue books, etc.,
in the United Kingdom during the
year 1896 is given in a blue book tost
issued, and which will interest many
people in British Columbia. In
1896 the total output of coal wm
196,361,270 tons; ot this amount
9,300 tons were obtained from open
quarries. The seams worked in England vary from 11 to 12 inches to
30 feet in thickness, and in Scotland
seams of canncl coal only six inchea
in thickness ate being worked. The
only mine worked tor cobalt and
nickel ore is io Flintshire, and after
being idle for several years it ha*
lately been reopened. The mine affords an instance of the recurrence of
the mineral absolane with red clay in
irregular cavities in the carboniferous
limestone. Copper mining is rapidly
decreasing in importance in Britain,
British diplomacy sometimes seems a
bit alow, but British fleets Svldom pro-
ciastinate when there is work to do.
Great Britain gave Europe a lesson in
sea power when the "flyiog squadron,"
able to scope with any foreign fleet, wm
mobilised in the channel without drawing a ship off the foreign stations, and
stood ready to meet an enemy at My
point at borne or abroad. Now she gives
Asia a lesson in the sudden appearance
in Co roan waters of seventeen ships,
able to meet any hostile combination
and able, with the aid of thirty Japanese ships, to dominate tbe whole .northern Pacific coast of Axis, to shot up the
Russian ships io port and to cut off
French and German reinforcement.
This celerity of action and alert pre- '
paredness for hostilities always has beso
the secret of British successes at sea.
More oo the ocean than on the land victory is with the commander who concentrates his force at tbe right time and
place. Napoleon died in exile because
be could not fight on two elements si
once, aod bad no naval duplicate suddenness with which this fleet looms up
io the Yellow Sea that recalls the appearance ol Nelson iu tbe Bay of Biscay
when Villeneuve thought he wm cruising in the West Indies. That wm the
curtain raUter for the world drama ot
One must reflect upon the conditions
of modern naval warfare to realise the
Importance of England's advantage, assuming that she has a complete understand! ng with Japan. Steam ironclads
cannot keep the sea and fight far from
tbe naval bases, like old wooden sailing
ships. The very lite ol a modern ship
depends upon ports ol coaling aod refitting near at band. Russia liM one such
port at Vladivostok, but Germany h»s
none in Asia. Great Britain has several
ot herowo within a few day's steaming,
and all tbe resources of Japan are at
ber disposal within a few hours. It any -
thing could make the theatrical German
crusade more ridiculous than the imperial rbedomontade which ushered it
in, it is that Prince Henry muat buy
coal at a half doseo British ports on his
way to China. Not only Is the British
fleet on the ground before the German
fleet starts, but the latter is absolutely
dependet non British help to make ita
Journey. The Russians are little (better off, because the English and Japanese
could shut them off in Port Arthur snd
Vladivostok, and work their will in
Cores and Pekln.
Tbia move opens a new phase in the
game of Europeanlsing China. Great
Britain's protest against tbe Idlsplace-
ment of British administrators in Cores
is an earnest of the way in which she
will meet the developing planslfor Rus-
sianicing'the Chinese administration.
British policy apparently is .to tahe no
part in the partition ot China, >ither to
share it or prevent it, but to require tho
most absolute guaranties for her trade
and to protect it against unfriendliness
of administration ot any part of the em«
plre In whioh her commercial interests
are greater than all other foreigners.
To this end she will menace Russia, oppose Germany, support Japan, exhaust
the resources of diplomacy, aod, if at
last needful, v ill fight. This is tbe no-'
tloe she has just served upon Europe.-*

"No, "• dbdbtffilly. "You don't nave
to, but you can if you want to."
••Well—J -will toll you if I get it
Now, mind, this is very important "•
"Select three cards then. Does it con-
earn a woman?"
"I might have known it Is she light
or dark?"
"That would be telling."
"Oh, you are too provoking!" petulantly picking up the cards. "It would
serve you right if I said you didn t get
your old wish at all."
"But you won't do that?"
"Be still. I will if yon don't let go
of my bauds. Seel You are making me
drop all tbs cards."
"Nonsense! I'll help you pick them
np. Just'teli me if I get my wish."
"Well, I'll see. There's that ten of
diamonds, and the deuce, and—ah, tbe
aos of hearts I You will have it, sure,,
but there is a little disappointment just
at first I see—dear me. Jack I What are
y in doing? Let go my bands."
"Not until you nave given me a guarantee for my wish."
"What do you mean?"
"I mean—oh, well, you have known
it all along. You are my wish. No, no,
don't move. Come, dear, be serious with
me for once."
"But I don't want to be serious," she
cried, trying to draw away from him.
"You have spoiled all my fortune.
Look! Here I see a gift coming."
"What do I care for the cards or anything else in the world but you? Come,
Nell I Qive me au answer. You must
have seme feeling of kinduess in your
heart for me, your old friend,"
"That's it," she whispered faltering-
ly, for the first time letting her eyes
meet his. " We ere snob old friends. I
have known you all my life—I —" rubbing her hand on the table nervously,
"I am fonder of yon than almost any
one,, but bow can I tell if that is love?
Jack, dear, can't we go on in the old
way? I don't want to marry." Her fingers closed pleadingly. '' Why should wo
jpoil it all by getting married?"
Hs made a quick, impatient gesture.
I "Oh, yesl I know it is different with
men, but I would be contented to live
on just aa we are for years. Why, seel
We would never know what it was to
tire of each other. We would not have
all the romance brushed off our love by
the monotonous'intimacy of married
life. We would have nil of thr delight
with none of tho despair. I don't know
why marriage should be regarded as the
height and pinnacle of earthly bliss. It
seems to mo it is the one great institution that destroys love."
She gave a restless sigh and let her
chin sink into the soft palms of her
bands. Tbe pink light from tho lamp
fell upon her yellow hair, where it lay
in babyieh- rings on her forehead.
He stood looking at her a moment,
bis heart smothered with pain and longing and love. • Then he leaned slowly
forward and took both her hands from
her face and bold them in the firm clasp
Of his
"Nell, dear," he said softly, "you
talk this way because yon don't know I
what love ia why, do yon suppose for
a moment that a mere pleasant companionship would satisfy a man Wbo loved
you? He would be only half a man to
accept what you suggested. As for me,
I cannot go on with our friendship. I
will not take a crust when I have asked
for bread. Yon cannot help it dear, and
I must drop out of your life and live my
own as best I may."
He dropped her hands, and, turning
away, began to finger mechanically the
Uttle stri ig that regulated tbe lamp until the flame began to flicker and Anally
went out.
"I beg your pardon. I have a match.
I can light it again," be muttered has-
. She watched Rim in silence as he
struck a liglst ar* with a steady hand
once more sent ■ a soft glow over the
room. '
Her eyes traveled to his face, with
tho light shining full upon it   It was  '
Strangely still. She felt a peculiar little
fluttering sensation in her throat.
"Jack," she whispered falteringly.
He turned in a sudden passion, and
catching both her hands drew her near
to him—so near that his white faoo was
almost touching hers.
Sbo did not move, but a deep flush
crept over bis tanned cheeks, and his
arms tightened convulsively. The force
of bis clasp crushed and hurt her. His
face came nearer, nearer. Their breaths
mingled. Then, with'a sharp exclamation, he loosened his hojd—so quickly,
so suddenly, that she almost fell backward.
"Forgive me," he muttered hoarsely.
Don't speak to me. Good night. .Say
good night to your mother too."
He pulled aside tho curtain with a
rough hand and stepped-into the hall. I
She could hear him getting into his coat ■
Her hands vrero still fingering the cards.
From the force of habit she turned three
up. Her eyes fell upon them as they lay I
under the lamplight.
A mistake—he was getting his cane
now. A—the door wns opening—a '
heartache. Sbo felt the cool night wind
on her neck and turned slightly. Then
. there was tho Bound of the closing door
echoing through the silent house—n
• mistake. ., . |
. Her eyes clung to the cards. They
seemed to mock her. Sho stretched her
arms out blindly toward the door nnd
tried to coll his name, hut her lips did
not move.
Then in a frenay of pain she scattered
the cards on tho table. Her eyes foil
suddenly upon pne. Sho snatched it
recklessly from the pack, and rushing
into the hall flung the door wide open.
"Jackl Jack I" sho panted.
He wsb half way down tho steps, and
as he paused and turned toward her, nho
impulsively threw tho card nt his feet
Be stooped wouderingly, and raising it ,
held it up to the light ,
It wns tho flvp of hearts.
"Noli!!' he cried, springing up the
steps. His voicowus hardly to busocog-
toised. ' I
A sudden flutter of nerTousnoss swept
over hoi", and witb^a throb of fear she
slammed tbe door tight, but he knocked
heavily against tbe'panels.
"Nell, Nell, openl What do yon
Tbe door did not move.
"Sweetheart I"
Then there was a little uncertain
turning of the knob and a crack of light
appeared. Crushing through it, he
caught the slight, trembling form in his
quivering arms.
"Nell, Nel), what do you mean?"
"I mean," her words falling spasmodically from her lips, ' 'I mean that I
want to give you my—guarantee."—

The Windsor Castle Ghoet.
Lieutenant Olyn, the young guardsman who recently - encountered , a
"ghost" in Windsor castle, continues to
insist that his eyes did not deceive him,
and, judging from tho details of his ex-
ueiience which he gravely gives to all
Inquirers, it is more than probable thnt
he is quite right, at least so far as regards his assertion that he "saw something. '•' It is easy to see something
almost anywhere, and in Windsor castle
there is a large n-unber of people who
may well have.littie affairs" of their own
which their duty as royal servitors prevents tbom from attending to except in
ways as mysterious as possible. Be that
as it may, Lieutenant Olyn courageously, perhaps indiscreetly, declares: First,
that he was sitting quietly in the castle
library, improving his mind by a perusal of "The History of Dorsetshire;"
second, that, glancing up from this far
from exciting volume, he saw a' Woman
in black, with black lace on' her head
and falling to her shoulders, who passed
noiselessly across the room and disappeared in a corner that was out of his
range of view.
This is all there was to the apparition, and the lieutenant—wisely enough
—would have thought nothing more of
tho episode had not an attendant come
in soon after to close the library. Lieutenant Olyn told the man that thero was
a lady in the inner room. The . servant
investigated. There was no lady. And
the chief librarian, who was then summoned, immediately declared that the
young man had seen the specter of (jucen
Elizabeth. Lieutenant Olyn was willing to let.it go at that, and the story
has deeply impressed everybody in England except a few cynics. Tho dean of
Windsor took pains to get all the details, "several members of the royal
family" have interviewed the guardsman, and tbe papers have given much
space to the occurrence. Meanwhile,
doubtless, some young woman is Mossing the superstitious, tendency of her
fellow countrymen, mill it's not impoe-
S. bio that some young mhn is equally
pleased at it.—New York Time*.

the Lord's Dsy Act was passed long
before the corporations gained their
present standing in the community,
but the spirit of the law was no doubt
that it should apply to corporations as

open which tbe courts held that the
law could not apply to  corporations
was that that the act did not contain
any provisions for punishment, except
that of imprisonment and of course,
corporations could not be imprisoned,
