The first of 5Jiy was the date set hy
Minor-Graven syndicate last fall upon
which to teeommeiico operations upon
Iheir mammoth Rockland ledge on Rid
Mountain. The lateness ol lhe pr.sent
season may delay their commeiiceni"nt
somewhat, together wilh the fact that the
Red Mountain wagon road is yet unbuilt, but it will not be long before the
practical testing of the gold-copper ledges
ol Eight Milo creek will be begun.
Mining men in ihis district are greatly
interested in tlio work to be done bv the
Miner-Graves people, us that syndicate
has a reputation for going nt their Undertaking! in a thorough business manner
and ofi making a success ol whatever
they attempt lo do. If they succeed as
they expect in their Sloean mining, it
will mean much for Red Mountain, tor
although many claims are staked  there
ami luui-li piospecting ami development

none havo been iu a position to develope

Upon the success or failure of lhe

The actual saltinL' of mines by the old
well known methods has actually gone
out of date, and is altogether gone^ont of
practice to-day, but tiie more progressive
and up lo dale method of salting a mine,
is not to salt the mine at all, but to salt
the engineer's report, hy greasing his
fingers, says the Butte Western Mining
\\ orld.
The manner in which a great many
people inve-t in mining is sufficient to
open tbe way fur most any old kind of
smooth promoter to get along very
nicely without resortinj? to any of the
old methods of salting.
Usually n lri«'inl of those interested in
the purchase of n mining property is
selected to go out. and examiner the
mining property simply because they
know him to in; honest, not that he
knows anything about the business.
Getting into the nroporty he is easily
led lo the richest portions of the veins,
and from ono to another, and not being
posted as to the business, is easily convinced that it is a most wonderful mine.
Furthermore, it is very natural for tbe
man who is on the ground to become
enthusiastic; in fact, (lie most natural
thing in (he world, and the less he knows
about the business the more enthusiastic
he becomes.
The way some syndicates manage
their properties even after getting hold
of a good one, is sufficient to discourage
mining investments.
The fact is tliat the opportunities tor
salting a report and diverting the capital
from development into the pockets of
disreputable persons are far greater and
lar more lucrative than attempting tlie
actual salting ol a mine.

At Montreal Archbishop Bruchesl Issued a pastoral letter dealing with the
judgment ln the Delplt case, which declared marriage of Catholics by non-
Catholics legal. "All unions," says the
archbishop, "contracted with invalidating Impediment for which competent authority has not been granted
dispensation, even though civil power
looks upon such unions as valid and
legal, must be considered as null and
invalid. This Is' a point of doctrine
that cannot be denied. Without that
faith would be shipwrecked." The
archbishop concludes by pronouncing
sentence of excommunication on all
those who disobey the laws of the
church concerning marriage, reserving
the right to himself nnd the vicar general to absolve those who become guilty of such a fault.
Pekin, April 8.—The recent meeting of
the generals of the allied troops and Count
von Waldersee was of great importance
and interest, though it was known beforehand wliiit had been practically decided
on. Still the meeting showed conclusively
the attitude of the different powers. The
only dissents from the plan adopted were
General Chaffee, the American commander,
and (ieneral Wogack, commander of the
Russian forces, who both thought that
the number of points to Imi occupied was
excessive nml also that the number of
troops was too great. The oilier generals
were unanimous in the opinion that nine
points on the railway should bc occupied
between Pekin and Sbin-hai-kwan, with
6000 men. exclusive of the _SHH> in Pekin.
This will lie a permanent measure, while
the reduction of the present forces will be
made according to the present wishes of
the respective governments. The railway
between l'ao-ting-fu and I'ekin will nol
he guarded, it not lieing a line of communication with the sea.
i IiiIioh   for   Indemnity.
General Chaffee suggested that it was
only necessary to occupy two points between Yan-thsun and Tientsin and three
b-'tween Tientsin and Sliitn-liai-kwan.
with a total of 2000 men, exclusive of
those at Pekin. It was not necessary, he
said, to liave soldiers at Toiig-ku, as naval
vessels were always there, and because the
reliefs could be passing backward and forward. Oeneral Wogack thought that 1000
men would be sufficient for occupying
Tientsin and Slian-ha-kwan.
AITectlng Mnneburla.
The views of the majority will lie presented to the ministers for immediate action, as the generals feel that the acceptance hy the Chinese of the.se terms may include the total destruction of the forts at
Shaii-hai-ktvan, Pci-tang, Taku, Tong-ku,
Pei-tsan and Yang-thsun, whicli will mean
complete submission, when arrangements
ought to he mf.de for Hie withdrawal of a
majority of the forces from China.
London, April 8.—O. .cial notice has
been received tliat claims for indemnity

London. April 8.—A dispatch from St.
Peters-burg says it is learned from a trustworthy source that Russia's diplomatic
agents abroad were instructed on April 3
to communicate to the governments to
which Ihey are accredited an identical note
in the siinie terms ai that presented by
COUnt (ussini hi Secretary Hay.
The text of the Identical note, as it appears from news which has come to hand,
is as follows:
"That in the present circumstances a
ipecial examination into the Msnebndan
tjfail', instead of lieing an open testimonial
of friendly sentiments on the part of Russia toward China, might entail various differences for the neighboring states. Russia does not in any way insist upon the
conclusion of any such agreement and even
abandons all possible negotiations in this
mutter ln as much as the imperial government ever adheres faithfully to its original and oft rei>eated program it will quietly await the further course of events."
I Strike to Continne.
Indianapolis, April 8.—The national executive  committee  of  the  United  Mine
j Workers of America will meet here and
will probably be in session five or six days.
The miners' officials   are not   forecasting
I what action is to 'he taken, but something |
is to be done for the relief of the miners
iu the Arkansas, Kansas and Indian terri-1
lory fields, where a strike has been in
progress for nearly two years. The miners
there are holding out for an increase of 10
per cent in the wage scale, but the oper-
1 atom show no signs of yielding. Men have
heen imported to take the places of the
strikers and have been given the increase
the latter have been demanding. ;
| The strike has cost the national organi-1
ziition a large amount of money in the
way of a relief fund, and it is expected
that if the differences can not he adjusted,
arrangements for continuance of the relief
fund will 'be made, as the organization is
determined not to give up.
| The situation in the anthracite fields of
Pennsylvania will he considered and it is
said that ways and means are to lie devised for strengthening the organisation
there in the hope of increasing the likelihood of the operatives meeting the operators in joint conference next year for the
•purpose of settling differences for the entire field.

Knipcror'B Recent Speech.
Berlin, AprM 8.—The entire tiennan
piess is still greatly excited over the emperor's recent utterances on the occasion
of his toasts and the reviews in the weekly
press confirm this qpndition. The Cologne
Yolks Zeitung says Emperor William's
words to the Emperor Alexander Grenadier regiment upon the occasion of their
installation in their new barracks near the
emperors palace, when he called them his
life guards, etc., have been received everywhere with dismay and amazement, but
sadder still is the fact that the emperor
had the regiment's barracks built in close
proximity to the castle, which shows that
the emperor meant what he said upon that
occasion. The pajier then dissects the emperor's toast concerning Russian-German
relations and says il is evident that somebody is systematically trying to embroil
these hitherto friendly relations, and from
the emperor's hints this can only be Great
Britain or Japan. The psper concludes:
"Where on earth are our new Knglish
friends?"

Several persons who were crossing the
bridge at the time went down with the
ear, and a horse and wagon loaded with

flttt and then slid off into the mud at the
canal bottom, where it stuck. When the

•struck is only 40 feet deep and is resting
on a lied of sulphur. These fuels were ascertained hy the drillers. After the oil was
struck tlie pipe was permitted to sink tip-
til it struck tlie bottom, and .t rested after
40 feel had gone down. The drillers then
bored four feel into what they say is a
bed of pure sulphur. In two other gushers
sulphur was struck before lhe oil was
reached. President Gilbert says that one
day next week the valve will lie opened to
test the flow.

An Inlian.ipilis Woman's Sworn Statement of the Way in Which She
Wus Saved From Death.
From the Indianapolis News.
Mrs. Mary K. Burns, of 505 Hiawatha street, Indianapolis, Ind., Is living evidence of the wonderful powers
of Dr. Williams' Hink I'llls for Pale
People, the remedy that cures where
all others fall. For yeurs she en
dured all the tortures of indigestion
nervousness and female weakness, n
complication of troubles that live physicians confessed their inability tc
cure. Her story is well worth the attention ol every woman.   She says:
"My Illness commenced after my
first child wus born. I was so weak
and nervous that it seemed 1 would
never get strong. For twelve years
1 doctored for female trouble, complicated with nervousness and indigeR
tion. My stomach was so weak that
for days at a time I could eat nothing
but bread and milk. I was also troubled with palpitation of the heart and
was often so miserable that I could not
lie down. Five doctors prescribed for
me, and I took many kinds of medicine without being benefited. One
day I saw Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
advertised in the papers and I de-
elded to give them a triai. 1 did so
and had not finished taking the first
box when I knew that I was getting
better.
"You can imagine the relief I felt
when I found that after years of suffering 1 was being cured. I continued
taking the pills, and the female trouble
entirely disappeared. Dr. Williams
1'lrik PUls for Pale People did more
for me than lt was claimed they would
do. Since I first took tho pills I have
not needed a doctor nor any other
medicine I they have restored my!
health, strength and happiness.

" Dkah Mrs. Pinkham :—When I wrote to you a few months
ago I hud been suffering from inflammation of tho ovaries and
womb for over eighteen months. I hnd a continual pain and
soreness in my back and side. I believe my troubles were caused
by overwork and lifting some years ago. Life was a drag to me
and I felt likn giving up. I hud several doctors, but they did me
littlo good. I began to use Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound four months ago and am in better health to-day than I
nave been for years. All my pains are gone. Your Vegetable
Compound has made me well. I recommend it to all suffering
women,'—Mrs. 8. J. Watson, Hampton, Va.

London, April 9.—The Pretoria correspondent of the Morning Post warns
his countrymen against hoping for an
early termination of hostilities or be-
lieving the stories that the Boers are
tired of war.   Ho says:
"It becomes daily more evident that
the Boers Intend to flght to a flnlsh.
Many are surrendering, hut they are
men of no standing. The real fighting
men are still in commandos, and although recently successful British operations tend to hring the end nearer
it is evident that the Boers must be
completely crushed before a general
surrender Is probable."
It ls rumored that Acting President
Sohalkberger has removed the seat of
government to l.ytlesdorp.
According to a dispatch to the Dally
Mail from Hilvolsum, Mr. Kruger, who
has just arrived there, has expressed
an intention to go to the United States
in June and visit Washington, Boston
and Chicago.
"It Is definitely ascertained," 3ays a
dispatch to the Times from Kroonstadt,
dated Saturday, "that Generals Dewet
and Botha met at Vreide."
Lord Kitchener has informed the
war office that eight volunteer companies, freed by reliefs, are coming
home and that arrangements are ln
progress for the speedy relief of further companies. He thus appearB to
be endeavoring to meet the demand
that fresh troops be sent to the front
to replace the stale men.

With a hand-ax, you're exciting;
But for heaven's sake stop writing,

British Columbia may now be said
to have entered another epoch in the
history of her mining development.
She is to-day in much the samo position as was Colorado some years a»o,

Mining Record. The total mineral
product imi of Colorado in 1SS0 was
valued at fifteen millions; by 1890 it
hnd increased to fifty-two millions,
and in 1900 to over six hundred millions. That is to say, for the last ten
years it has averaged in value over
fifty-five million dollars annually. The
mineral area in Colorado is very much
less than it is in Urituh Columbia.

In our high hills at this se.ison of
the year the snownlide reigns as kit-;,'
and for the next few weeks it is will
for miner, freighter and prospector to
leave loin iu undistuibed possi-Bcioii of
his rugged kingdom. Of all the
dangers that confronts the toilers
amongst the mountain ranges of t In-
north, none are bo much feared as the
deadly avalanche of ice and snow that
is likely to sweep down the mountain
side at any time with such speed und
force as to carry doath and d-strucliou
to all in its path. Each and every
year since the discovery of the Slocan
the snowi-lidc has claimed as victims
to its wrath oue or more human liven,
| t us hope that this season will be an
exception and tliat the destruction of
a few acres of timber will* suli'ice.
Without knowing tho exact grievances, alleged or otherwise, of the
Rossland Miners' Union, wo cannot
but feel thankful for the majority
adverse to the strike motion, which
was balloted on this week. The
mining industry of the Kootenays is
what we arc all dependent upon and
any further trouble, whether of lubor
or legislation, would certainly do us an
immense amount cf harm at present.
The Miners' Union must not strangle
the goose that lays (he gold, n egg, as a
strike at the present time would do.
The ir.inn-owncrs too havo their
grievances at present and mutual
forbearance will be a good thing until
such time as matters adjust them
sel ves.
As n result of (he difficulty of
innikctiiig thn product Ot their mines,
the St Eugene Consolidated Company
has closed flown. This t-Rects the
Mryie, Like Shore and St Eugene
minis and throws ,'100 miners out of
employment, The town of Moyie will
feel acutely tliii state of ali'iiis.'
It is now that seaton of the year
when the entire press of the Pacific
coast from San Francisco to Skagway
is busy telling fairy talei of the
richness of tbe Arctic regions nnd what
a paradise of a country it is for u
poor man to go to who ,wants to '.'ft
rich quick, lb-ring 'thn summer after
the transportation companies huve
harvested their crop of suckers, they
are not so sure about it being a poor
man's country and early in the fall
they will be howling ac th.i government to send up releif to the Starving
miners and furnish them transportation bock to their friends und
civilization. This (.auc is j.layed
successfully each succeeding season.
