The lialway Gold Culch mining company is the o'dy purely Ontarian product
iu the market.
The enormous production of gold in
tho last two jears iu Africa and the I'nited SlHtes has aroused the sell greed of
the whole world, extending into tho remotest parts of this vast Dominion.
Gold is the most universally diffused
metal in existence. ludeed scientists are
agreed that the weight of the earth com- I
pared with its size is a certain indication
that tho whole centre of the globe is a
mass of pure gold
Consequently thero is no experimenting needed ; no surface cropmngs necessary ; all that has to be done is to go
down deep enough,
The complinv propose lo go down.
Your subscription lor shares is invited,
a» development of a most spirited character is intended. There should bo no
hesitation, no doubt as to when It will
pay. In tbo bright lexicon of Bobcaygeon there is no such word as "when".
It is merely a matter of development—
tho sinking of a hole to the fabulous mass
nt gold beneath.
The more rapidly the shares are subscribed the deeper the company will tain the hole. Five millions of stock have
heen placed to tbe private account ot the
officers of the compauy. This is merely
as a guarantee ul good faith.
Five million of _1 shares, par value,
are now offered at le. per Bhare, in blocks
ol not less than 25.
Tho shares will be fully paid and nonassessable, mid dividends are  positively
n*i collectable.

Tlio said Association has publicly
declared that nono of its mines r.ha!l pay

Consequently, when u member of the

What a pretty picture ono of these

His word eertainiy is not good.
Iu conclusion let mo say that it is

in this trouble results irom tho refusal
of tbe mine-managers, to comply with
the ordinary rules of business.

There is large, fine body of government land vacant in the southern part
of Yakima, Wn., that is worthy the attention of homesteaders. The land
is outside of the railroad limits, and
can be bought for $1.25 an acre, or can

than filing lands within the railroad
limits. There are parts of three
townships, well watered, and with flue

"Tlie men have had practically no fighting to do," said Captain Van Patten,
"since they captured Marong on the lake
just before the campaign south of Manila
wus begun. This wns about March 2(1.
Since then they have been resting iu daily

There is no disguising the fact that, the

Oil* Need*, BO.OOO Men.
Captain Van Putttn held the same
views relative to tlie needs of a greater
force to accomplish anything permanent
in the way of suppressing tlie insurgents
that have been expressed by ull other otlicers interviewed. He is emphatic that
Otis should have 60,000 men at least. This
would be sufficient to properly garrison
places captured and continue operations
for some time. An additional 20,000 would
then complete the work of subjugation.
"Otis should have had more men in thc
first place,'' continued the captain. "It is
my belief that if he had been given 26,000
men at the sturt for actual field service
thc war would now have been over. As
it wus, he only had between 12,000 and
13,000, and results have been discouraging.

"There is no hope of raising the increased force needed in thc Philippines by
IP-enlistment. This is sure. An officer of
the Fourth cavalry attempted to organise
a company of sharpshooters, nnd asked
Major Welsenberger how many men in
his five companies would re-enlist for two

Il.-iith of Bob InRrrsoll.
Col. Robert 0. Ingersoll recently died
nt his home, Walston-on Hudson, near
Dobbs Ferry, N. Y. His death wns sudden
and unexpected and resulted from bear!
disease, from which he had suffered since
1896. In Hint year, during the Bepubli
cnn national convention, he wns taken ill
and had to return home. He never fully
recovered from the attack of heart disease and was under the care of physician!
Robert Green Ingersoll wns born in
Dresden, N. Y, August 11, 1833. His
father was a Congregational clergyman of
such broad views us lo cause dissension
ttctween himself and his parish. The son's
boyhood was spent iu Wisconsin and Illinois, where the family removed in 1H4.1.
After studying law he opened an office
in Bhawneetown, 111., with his brother
Eben, who was subsequently a member of
congress. Both engaged in polities, but
the surroundings were uncongenial, und
in 1S.7 they removed to Peoria. In 1800
Robert wns a Democratic candidate for
Congress but was defeated. In 1802 he became colonel of the Eleventh Illinois cav-
airy, and a year und a hulf later united
with the Republican party. In lMlHJ he
was appointed attorney general for Illinois. At the national Republican convention in 1870 he proposed the name of
James G. Blaine for the presidential nomination in a s-H'cch that attracted much
attention. From that time his services
us a campaign orator were in demand
throughout the country. In 1877 he refused the post of minister to Germany.
He took part in numerous noted law suits
in ull parts of the country, ami wus counsel of the so-called slur-mute conspirators,
whose triul ended in ncquittul in 1883. He
wus well known by his Inioks, pamphlets
and speeches directed against the Christian religion. He published "The God*,"
"Ghosts," "Some Mistakes of Moses,'
"Prose Poems and Selections," and a Imgc
number of minor works.

New York, July 23.—The Financier
The reduction of .$12,000,000 in the .«.
posits ot the New York b.inl*.s lust week
lightened reserve requirements about $3.
000,000. The institutions, however, according to their current statement Iosl
$1,104,100 cash, nnd for Ihis reason the
increase in surplus reserve was only $1.
350,860, which brings present holding's
$12,066,000 above legal requirements,
The decrease in loans has contracted out-
standing lonn obligations no less than
$•.'0,000,000. lu the same time deposit,
have been decreased nearly $27,500,00(1,
while the cash in bunks has remained
stationary, lt will be seen that reserves
have been at the expense of outstanding
commitments, and the process does not
appear lo hnve reached nn end ns yet.
There is no question, however, Ihat the
banks are not gaining cash, even if th,.
statement does indicate otherwise.
The known operations of money last
week were decidedly in favor of the Institutions, the loss of three-quarters of a
million to the treasury having been offset
by the gain of 92,000,000 from the Interior.
The current exhibit does not reflect this,
but it is to be said that the losses shown
can be (raced to tWO pr three large bunk*,
ihe   remaining   members   having  really
stleligtlielled their positions. As to lhe
outlook the opinion is thnt there is nothing ill the situation nt present to warrant
au undue expansion in bank figures. The
liquidation which began with July has
run its course to a large extent, and while
the present is a mid season -x-iiod the
movement of money will probably continue this way for some little time.
Foreign exchange authorities agree that
gold e\|Hiits, except as spe. i.d transactions, nre nt nn end, und while the crop
season is nenr at hand it is not anticipated that the demands this year will cause
much of a drain from New York. Interior lunik reserves nre above the average, und this, coupled with easier rates
for money abroad nnd the certainty that
exchange will rule in favor of New Yoik
with  tlie coming grain exports, seems lo
favor a relaxation rather than u rise in
rates heie for the time being.

Snrah Hernhnrdt, nfter her season In
1 am receiving
many letters of inquiry about the mineral department. In answer to these
Inquiries I can say that there will be
no charges made for space for exhibitors. In addition to furnishing this
space, the exposition, In case no one can
come with the exhibit, will receive the
ores at the depot and place them In
the building; but of course every camp
which can arrange to do so should have
some one In charge to come with the
exhibit and place It himself."
Itepul.llc  Note*.
The shaft on the Dodie is 205 feet
deep. The value of the ore has increased to a marked extent during the
last lro feet.
The Insurgent continues to yield fine
ore and the quantity has not diminished. As work progresses it becomes
more certain that the Insurgent is to
become a great mine.
Superintendent Crumner states that
after passing through a pinch in the
south drift on the 90-foot level of the
San Poil the ore body widened out to
nearly its norma] size and the ore Is
or nearly as high grade as has been
found In the mine. The chute Is about
275 feet south of the tunnel.
General Manager Major Edwards-
Leckle contemplates doing a considerable amount of development work on
the Republic mine. Practically all the
development in the mine has been done
south of the tunnels, but he will at
once begin to systematically develop
the north hali of the property. There
is nearly 700 feet of ground north of
the tunn-ls that has not been explored.
The Art Dumont claim on Bridger
creek on the south half promises to become a bonanza In the near future. At
the bottom of the 35-foot shaft the ledge
is reported to be five feet wide, lt is
a lead carbonate and carries a rather
high i>or cent silver. The total value
in lead and silver will average about
$135 per ton.
The contractor on the Admiral
Dewey shaft is rushing the work. Some
excellent looking ore is being taken
out. but the values are said to be rather
small. As the shaft goes down there
is a decided improvement in the ledge
matter. The porphyry is disappearing
and quartz is coming fast. It seems
probable that the shaft will be all In
quarts before the 50-foot level Is
Three shifts are employed in sinking the winze on the Princess Maud.
The winze on the Morning Glory is
still being sunk, but beyond that the
public knows nothing.
Superintendent Coy of the Golden
Lily states that good progress is being
made in sinking the shaft and that the
values were practically unchanged.
The Republic Giant is looking better
every day. The ledge Is stronger and
the values are better.
Not only the ore in the drift of the
Tom Thumb is improving in value, but
the ledge la also improving in size.
There ls said to he fully eight feet of
quartz In the face of the drift.

The Lone Star and Hltie Grouse Company will soon commence a 1000-foot
tunnel upon these properties. The
claims are between the Ruth and Slocan Star, and the lead from the Slocan
Star runs through them.
Bight carloads of ore from the Sunshine and Silver Cup, in the Lardeau,
II. C, shipped to the Trail smelter, returned to the owners $18,948. This
was the amount realized above the cost
of freight and smelter charges.
The 40-horse power boiler and engine
were Installed last, weak at the Snow-
shoe mine in Greenwood camp.
jV good strike has been made on thc
Torpedo claim, which adjoins the Vancouver group, near Silverton.
The owners of the Pioneer claim,
near Silverton, on Lemon creek, J. M.
M. Benedum and W. M. Brasch. have
at last been rewarded by the discovery
of the gold ledge on that property that
threw out the rich float found three
years ago by the owners.
The appearance of the Stemwinder
mine at Fairvlew, B. C, is Improving
daily, as a result of the lively pushing
ahead of development work.
The shaft of the White Bear, at Rossland, Is now down for a distance of 270
Drifting on the 250-foot level continues In the Lily May of Rossland.
Things are being put Into shape for

Magnesite, used for lining Iron converters, furnaces, etc., is always worth

The present capacity of the cyanide
mills in the Mercur district, Utah, is
over 1,500 tons per day.
A large area of copper bearing land
is reported to have been discovered in
Archer county, Texas.
In Wyoming, on the Little Missouri
river and elsewhere, are coal beds
which have been burning for years.
The Tacoma smelter, which now has
a capacity of 190 tons daily, is preparing to increase its capacity to 350
tons daily.
A sharp lookout should always be
kept for tin ore. The world needs more
of lt, and perhaps some may be found
in the Inland empire.
The Canadian government is advising the people to look for a good supply of molybdenum, as there Is an English firm tliat wants to get hold of a
good ore of this metal.
Zinc ores should be noticed, for they
will become more valuable as this
country develops. Some of the zinc
ores are of such a character that they
would not be recognized except by an
Cinnabar, or mercury sulphide,
would probably attract attention on account of its unusual color, but it might
be overlooked by the careless prospector.
A great amount of assessment work
is being performed in the various districts of Beaverhead county, Montana.
The elevators on the Comstock have
lowered the water to the 1950-foot station. Work of cleaning out the station Is now going on.
Old-time Comstock miners nre interested in the recent report of a rich
strike of ore in the 1700-foot level of
the famous old Nevada mine.
The Yellow Jacket, one of the great
Comstock mines at Virginia City, Nevada, is the deepest mine in the I'nited
States. The lower levels are over 2,700
feet below the hoisting works.
The average cost of producing copper in the United States is seven cents
a pound. The lowest cost is five cents,
by the Boston & Montana Co. At the
Calumet k Hecla it costs seven cents.
Republic dividend number nine for
$.15,000 has been declared. This brings
tbe total of dividends paid by this famous mine to date up to $295,000. As
usual the payment will be made 30
days hence.
Our platinum supply Is limited, and
a prospector should always be on the
lookout for that metal, as it is worth
about $15 per ounce today on the market. There is a great and growing demand for this metal, which is only limited at present by the inadequate supply.
In Montana the supreme court has
just held that the owner of a claim cannot be prejudiced by the mistake of a
deputy government surveyor in making
the survey. It Is clearly inferable from
the opinion, however, that the owner
Bhould apply for a re-survey immediately upon discovering the error.
The country at the headwaters of the
Big Blackfoot river in Montana Is attracting much attention from mining
men. A large area of the mineral bearing belt promises to become a wealth
producer in the shape of copper, gold
and silver, the first named being the
leading metal. It is thought that large
bodies of the ore will be exposed In
the not distant future.

The Silvertonian has been accused
by Borne, of seeking to stir up strife
and ill will between the mine managers
—not mine owners—and the miners.
Such, wo assure our readers, is not the
case. In thia labor dispute, The
Silvertonian has taken the stand
that the miners are entitled to living
wages. It er deavores to ascertain and
tell tho truth as to the situation in
thia camp and when a lie is circulated
on the outside, in regard to the situation, we promptly nail tliat lie regardless of "whoso corns ive trend upon".
If this striko results in nothing else
than to show somo men up in their
true colors, it will have accomplished
that much good
A miner must live twenty four
hours a day. The Mining Review
will agree with that. If tho law says
he shall work only eight, six, four or
even one hour in every twenty four, In
must earn enough while working, let
the hours be what tt.ey may, to keep
him while he is not working. The
Union wage of !?.'J fiO a day is necessary
to keep a miner fDr a day. Therefore,
we say, that in right and justice, he
must be paid that for a day's   work.

friend Will be, to t-uote from its editorial pagi**, "to do al! that Hi. in us to
'uphold the dignity of labor' and to

The recent Sale of the Galena Mines
property, which lies within a mile of
Silverton, means a big thing for this
place. After lying dormant for nearly
two years, it will now bo worked for
all there is in it, the property having
passed into the handi of energetic
and practical mining men, who command sutliceut capital to thoroughly
develope this big property. A mill is
to be erected at once and as the site
is almost within the town limits, it
means not only another steady payroll but a buckpt brigade for the
town as well.

In wonder as the train did upward creep

Through canyons deep.
"Great scenery," to break the ice, I said,
"Incomprehensible, majestic, grand!

"Those towering pines, how graceful In

"Whatmighty power nerved the hand
that split
These mighty rocks apart, and hurled
them back!"
With upturned eyes she answered' W asn t

'These rugged canyon walls on either side

She turned her eyes upon them  and  replied :
"Well, I should grunt!''

The threat of T. J. Duncan, manager of the Queen Bess mine, to import
scab labor from Ontario to work that
mine, must be "taken with a grain of
salt". No doubt this rich foreign
company, who care no more for
welfare of British Columbia or the
Canadian people than they do that of
China and the Chinese, would like to
import cheap labor and bo swell their
dividends. But they will find to their
surpris', no doubt, that Canadian law
and Cunadian manhood will step in
and stop any such outrageous proceeding.

The death of Robert G. Ingersoll,
which occurred on the 21 Bt inst, removes another of America's noted
sons,. His greatness was recognized
alike by his enemies, of whom he had
many, and by his friends, of whom he
had more. ''Bob" Ingersoll was
known principally through his attacks
on Christianity, although as an orator
a Shakespearian student and a philanthropist, he was equally deserving of
fame. As a sample of his oratory, the
following may be taken from a funeral
addrifs he made in Boston:
"When the day is done, when the
work ol a life is finished, v hen the gold
of evening meets tbe dusk of night, beneath tho silent stars the tired laborer
should fall asleep. To outlive usefulness
is a double death. 'Let me not live after my flame lacks oil, to be tbe spoil of
younger spitits.' When the old oak is
visited in vain by spring, when light and
rain no longer thrill, it is not Well to
stand leafless, desolate aod alone; it is
better far to fall where nature softly covers all with woven  moss and creepicg
