Slocan, B. C„ Jan 25, 1900
Friend Harry,
I am hero on a wildgoose
chase. There were only 6 of the crew
went to work. When we got to Rose-
berry the union men met us them. Tbey
knew all about it last week when they
were hiring the men. Tbey locked the
dooru of the car at Roseberry to keep the
union men away. The boys opened the
Windows and talked to them. They
went on bourd the boat and told the men
how it wss. Roderick Robertson the
superintendent came in the car where
we were locked in and made a speech.
He told us these men would try to keep
us from going to work, that there was no
law in B C to prevent us from going
right on and he would see that we would
be all right. But we came here with the
assurance from Beatty the employment
agent that there whs no trouble here. I
went to Beatty and asked him if there
was ur.y trouble up there, und he told me
there was not. He said he bad been
sending men up there nil the time. The
mine has been shut down for 8 or 9
months. I told Beatly if there wus uny
trouble there I would not go. He us-
surrc-d me there was no trouble but when
I came here and heard fhe reputation he
had I didn't wonder at him telling such
barefaced falsehoods. Every man heie
I heard speak of him, where he lived for
five years, said he was the most untruth
fnl mun in B C. I sincerely hope this
will be a warning to nil lhe workingmen
of Vancouver to look out for him snd
every other scoundrel Ijfce him. I heard
him tell (women in his office that any
man that would pay his fare up there
would get work right away. Now there
are about 3QQidlp men here. Any man
that will try to spud men out in this
country on such [alsehood:i ha« no principle. .Ml he wants is thn dollar he gets
for it. The company didn't make much
out of bringing the crowd here.
Yours truly,
John Davidson.

ROBERT 1RVIN6, Manager,
nut WmitN the Treasury l.i Say How
Much Sl.iill lie Coined.
Washington, Jan. 23.—Secretary (Inge
wus before the house committee on
weights and measures, and spoke in f.ivor
of the adoption of_ the metric system.
-Mr. (.'age also referred to the need of fractional currency, lie pointed out that at
present the demand for fractional coin was
so urgent that issue ran considerably beyond the $.">.>0,000,000 authorized hy law,
and he recommended that this legal restriction be repealed, leaving the treasury
lo determine the proportion of fractional
coin necessary.
Cold Hushed In Again.
New Vork, dan. 23.—Tho linnnci,-!
The New Vork clearing house hanks
added no less than $11,030,000 lo their
cash holdings last week, bringing Ihe lo-
tal cash on hand to 1279^49,200, au
annum! larger than they have had in Iheir
vaults for months past. The surplus reserve fund rose about seven and one-half
minimis of dollars and stands at present
at 924,184,070. This contrasts quite sharply with the actual deficit existing 00
days ago.
The rapid recovery is due of course to
thc return of money from the interior and
to the disbursement of treasury funds
into active channels of commerce.
Counting the fifteen millions of gold ex-
purled it appears that no less than $40,-
000,000 in cash has come into New Vork
bunks in six days. The fact that surplus
reserves are correspondingly larger is due
to Ihe growth of deposits which are about
twenty-seven and a hulf millions heavier
than two months ago. This, of course, necessitates enhanced cash reserve.

Spearman's Camp, Jun. 22.—A party of
picked shots from Methuen's mounted
infantry took a position close to the river
before dawu and when it became light
lirod on the lloers, killing one and hilling
three horses.
A correspondent was in a position where
lie could watch (Ieneral Warren advancing from Mount Alice. At tlie same time
our front was advancing, using a balloon
to locate the Boers und with .skirmishers
in front. The nuval guns and howitzers
of (ieneral White kept shelling thc Boer
At 4 p. m. (ieneral Warren was still
shelling 1 ho high ridge running ut right
angles behind Speerkop with shrapnel,
which was bursting right above the Boer
trenches. A grass lire was burning be-
lw n the Hritish and Boer positions.
During Lord Ihindonald's engagement
nt Acton Homes it is reported that the

stood up and was immediately fired on.
Thereupon he sent a Boer prisoner to thc
burghers to say that unless their arms
were laid dow n and iheir hands thrown up
no notiee would be taken of white flags.
The lloers tired on the prisoner while returning.
Itoer prisoners declare the Orange Free
Stale and Transvaal burghers lire good
friends and have no idea of giving up the
tight, even when defeated. The lloeis
fired Mauser volleys and used a Xorden-
foldl gun this evening.
liener.il Warren fought for 12 hours.
He gained two positions. The British loss
is believed Io have been small. Artillery
was used for the protection of infantry and the generals had uot been
in haste hut had led their men
cautiously, (Tcry, by judicious use of
field guns, had fought his way from
ridge lo ridge for a distance of three miles.
The main position wus still in front oi

Lord Dundonald's cavalry advance
gunrd is now in position to try to advance by the Dewdrop roud through a
comparatively open country direct to La-
dysinilh, or may try to cut off thc Boer
retreat through Van Kecnan'a puss by
pushing on to Ladysmith ulong the Har-

Military opinion is divided between an
attempt at pPncli.iting the long Boer line,
or, while ("lery's division holds them in

is generally assumed that if Buller finds
Doer positions too strong for him he will

will cut his way through from Lidysmith,

The excitement ov. r the recent substantial developments in the South
Fork district near Mount Idaho Is dally
increasing and by spring the district
promises to be the scene of perhaps the
greatest mining activity in Idaho county. New outfits pass through Mount
Idaho almost daily en route to the district to begin development operations,
and a day does not pass without tho
consummation of new deals.
The Gopher shaft Is 130 feet deep and
is now in solid ground.
Fourteen men are employed on the
Mud Lake and Knob Hill claims.
Several londs of Mountain Lion machinery are arriving every day.
There is two feet of the ore body in
the Butte k Boston that averages $101
to tho ton.
More machinery for the mines has
arrived in Republic the last week than
ever in Its history.
There ls a report that work Is to be
resumed on the Flag Hill within a few
dnys, but this ls not official.
The Struy Horse is giving employment to six men divided Into two
.shifts.   The crosscut Is in 48 feet.
The Blacktall is demonstrating its
title to the name of mine, lt Is one of
the big ones of the cnmp. The winze
which was lately started in the rich ore
shoot is down 35 feet.
The Delta shaft is full of quartz, and
all is not taken out. The ore ranges in
value from $8 to $26 per ton. The shaft
\a 96 feet in depC
At the Tom ' 'mb two shifts are
sinking the new working shaft and two
shifts are working ln the south drift on
the 150-foot level. The face of the drift
is In quartz and there Is several feet
left on the wall.
The south drift on No. 4 ledge on the
Lone Pine has been driven 50 feet. The
ledge is six feet wide. The ore averages $80 per ton. The north drift has
been driven 20 feet. The ledge is five
feet wide and the quartz averages $20
per ton.
The building of the Republic Reduction Company's mill is progressing rap-
Idly. About 50 men are engaged in
framing timbers. The foundation ls
completed and the timbers will be in
readiness to raise the structure in
about 10 days. There are three carloads of machinery nt Grand Forks.
The rest is expected within the next
week. The mill building will be quite
an extensive affair, being 210x90 feet.
Sixty men are on the Republic pay
roll. Some sloping la icoinir on from
No. 3 tunnel. The ore is assorted and
sacked and will be sent tb a smelter as
soon as teams can be had to haul It to
Grand Forks. There ia nearly 3000
sacks of ore ready. It is difficult to estimate anything like Its real value.
Some of It is fabulously rich and all is
of high grade, it will undoubtedly bc
the richest shipment ever made from
the mine.

The ore shipped over the Kaslo k Slocan railway for the year 1899 was 25,-
700,224 pounds, which shows a decrease
of 16,(i02,89l from that of 1898, says the
Kaslo Kootenaian.
A new lead furnace has been blown In
at the Trail smelter. There is a stock
of ore on hand sufficient for seversil
mom hs. The furnace is a large us anything in the United States.
The development of the Butcher Boy
ln (Ireenwood is by a shaft which has
reached a depth of 45 feet. The ore
being taken out from the bottom of
the shaft shows considerable arsenical
Iron, mixed with copper pyrites and
Iron pyrites.
The first dividend of $30,000 has been
declared by the new management, of the
Center Star, and It Is probable they will
hereafter be a monthly occurrence. The
mine Is shipping at the rate of 900 to
1000 tons a week, and will probably
keep up this rate indefinitely.
A Greenwood dispatch of the 19th
snys: Two Boundary district mines
made their first shipments today. Tho
B. C. In Summit camp, the well known
mine which Is the property of the same
syndicate which controls the Republic
mine In Republic, Wash., and the Payne
mine at Sandon, B. C, shipped three
carloads to Trail. It Is a trial shipment, but the value of the ore has been
so well determined that the management has little doubt of the outcome.
The ore averages ubout $40 per ton. The
other shipper Joining the rapidly growing list today was the Winnipeg mine,
In Wellington camp. One car went to
Trail. It is the first of a steady run
of shipments contracted to go forward
from this mine.
The Center Star In Rossland Is soon
to bo equipped with an entirely new
plant of machinery, operated by steam
power, one feature of which will be a
new plant for ore sorting, designed on
different lines from any now ln ubo In
of with a hose, as heretofore. The
steam hoist, which has been ordered,
will be capable of hoisting a four-ton
load 900 feet per minute from a depth
of 2000 feet. The building for the 40-

Three feet of pay ore has been uncovered in the shaft on the Houston claim,
owned by the Brie Mountain Consolidated Company.
Shipments are being made from the
Arlington mine, near Brie, and from
now on a carload of ore will lie sent to
the Northport smelter each day. The
ore ls a high-grade galena.
The Leo Gold Mining Company ls actively developing the Leo group, near
Hall siding. A shaft has been sunk to
u depth of 75 feet, at which depth some
line mineralized rock has been struck.
A good strike has lieen made on the

Parties Just down from Frosty creek,
the new mining district 20 miles from
Bllensburg, Wash., report a rich strike
of white quartz, in which the gold can
be seen with the naked eye.
Another rich striko hai been made
in the Ore-Blum district, and thia time
on the Ida Elmore property on Hawkins mountain, about 25 miles from Bllensburg. A blind ledge has been
struck containing very rich ore. A
rough estimate of its value places It at
$1200 to the ton ln gold.
The Standard Mining Company at
Wallace ls preparing to mnde some repairs to its mill, and to build its Canyon creek flume a board higher, and in
order to facilitate the work the mill
will be (dosed down during the day and

tunnel was run mainly for prospecting
purposes, and while thousands of dollars' worth of ore have been taken out
through it, the shipment.-, for months
past running two carloads per day, it
la too small to work the mine on the
scale which it Is proposed to work it
this year. While this is lieing done
