It Is rumored that the C. V. R. has

will fail to see it in that light. Should

•'.lines that has been worked for a  great
period of lime. To tlrain these the F.mst-
Aucust Tunnel has been driven a distance
ot nearly nix and n half miles, and  with
its branches it is no less than fourteen
miles long.    Many of the lodet are intersected bv this tunnel at 1200 feet deep.
"The Freiberg Mines aro dtnined by a
tunnel, the Rothscbonbcrger Slolln, the
main trunk of which is over eight and a
half miles in le&Btti; with its  ramifications it is about twenty-five   miles Ions,
and cost e"60,000.   In  Hungary amine
drainage tunnel, thp Kais -r Joseph  Erh-
Ktoiln, wus Malted in 17S2 arid completed
in KSid; it is over ten miles long.   Many
other works of this kind can be recorded,
bnt these few serve to show bow  v, Bt
works arc sometimes in connection with
mining   operations,    and    they   rather
dwarf things in this hemisphere that appear to us as big concerns.   These drainage tunnels serve also in many instances
(or the conveyance of oro lo the treatment   centres.    At  Claustlial,   in   the
Harts, there is a central ore treatment
works, fed from o shaft nbout 1200 feet
deep, sunk not on any lode, but through
the country to tap the drainage tunnel,
jn which all the ore from the mine is
conveyed in barges to lie hauled up tho
shaft to the works.
Ono sees in many parts of Ihe Colonies
a live or ten head stamper ba'.tory to
irent ore from a large lode. Compare
these with tbo 1500 bead of stampers
working nt the largest, tin mine in Allen-
berg, infnxony, or with the iiOlt head at
Dtilcoath Tin Mine in Cornwall. At
Johannesburg, inthcTraansviial, several
of the mines have 200 to 300 stamps."

ho says, "there is a group ol silver-lead | ilie Kootenay, met his death in a mine
not far from Dawson. The News says:
"A coroner's inquest was held ut the
Forks hy captain McDonnell on the
death of Martin Clair, who waa found
dead at the bottom of a 'J5 foot shaft on
Little Skookum hill. The jury decided
Clair died from suffocation from the
effects of gas breathed while in the mine,
through his own carelessness, and recommended that the mine bo ventilated
Iiefore again being used. Clair was a
miner. He disappeared Friday night,
nnd was found dead Saturday at the
bottom of the shaft ol t\ mine opposite
No. 2. I'.onaiit.i. His body is lieing

The d.iilv papers thU week, with the
exception of those published in Nelaon,
contained two important despatches
from South Africa, chronicling a defeat
nnd a victory for the Imperial forces. As
a liisttcr of news Ihey were the best oi

furnished to Ihe Nelson dailies by the
selector of their despatches.
When   tbe   dusk   Is  slowly    creeping,
shutting out the glure  of duy ;
When   the   evening    star   in    beauty
trembles with teliiliient ray;
When the violets' dewy fragrance subtly
sooths the sting of pain—
Then the mind turns inward, backward,
to the joys of youth again.
In the hour of dear communion with tbe
voices of lhe past
Haunting   memories   throng  upon   us,
bringing joys too sweet to last:
All the angush of the present for a little
space   is  flo«n,
And tho soul goes forth unfettered to a
kingdom of its own.
There Is pain in the awaking when the
bush of night is past,
And Ibe morning brings ils sorrows, and
our dreams aro overpast;
But thc year God Bends His children, lest
in trouble tliey forget,
Glimpses of foretasted heaven nightly
when the um basset.
—Anna C. Parler.
A man came in the other dsy with
what he thought was a conundrum:
"Why is a newspaper like a woman?"
The various answers were: "Because it
has to have someone to run it;" "Be-/
cause both are good advertising mediums," "Because it chances its dress."
The correct answer is: "Because every
mnn should have one ot his own, and
not lie running to borrow his neighbor's.'1

TRADE  REPORT.
Bradstreet's report of trade for the
past week is as follows:
Reports to Bradstreet's ihow a further improvement in the volume and
tone of distributive trade, which held
its Inception In the better weather and
crop conditions. Following the check
given to the crop damage enthusiasts
by the June crop report, which can
hardly be regarded as other than brilliant for wheat, comes assurances that
tbe conditions of June 1, good as they
undoubtedly were, have been further
Improved. What is true of the smaller
cereals is also largely the case as to
corn, though the latter Is backward
and needs warmth. A better business
ls noted in some lines of men's wear
woolens, and some makes of cheaper
goods are reported heavily ordered
ahead. While the cereals are lower on
good crop reports, quick support has
come from the export demand, which
has been the largest for weeks past,
and the decline has been, temporarily
at least, arrested. One of the most
satisfactory features of all is that after
quite a period of dullness pig iron has
been taken more freely at leading markets, and bars and plate have sold better, the latter even noting an advance.
Pig Iron production is shown to be
proceeding at an unprecedented rate,
but consumption seems to wait promptly upon output. Railroad earnings continue in diminished volume, and the
only decidedly unfavorable feature deserving attention is the failure of the
machinists' strike to be amicably settled, the prospect in fact being that the
contest will be a long drawn out one. *
Wheat, Including flour, shipments
for the week aggregate 4,790,107 bushels, against 6,644,644 last week, 4,678,-

wheat exports are 205,623,383 bushels,
against 191,834,956 bushels last season
and 219,446,758 bushels In 1898-99.

Systematic development ie being
done at the new placer fields by three
concerns. In addition there are many
small holes on the low and the high
bars, but they do not appear to have
offered inducements sufficient for *ihe
locators to open them. It Is possible
this is due to the great expense In constructing ditches and flumes. Three
men are working on the discovery.
They have done a small amount of
ground sluicing on the low bar, where
the discovery was made. They are now
engaged in cleaning up the bedrock by
shoveling into the sluices. They are
handicapped by having but little of
water. This makes it impossible to
move much earth. There are a great
number of boulders that weigh from
200 to 500 pounds each. The owners
said they were doing well, but gave no
figures.

R. H. Parkinson, P. L. S., has issued
a new map of the Osoyoos and Similkameen mining divisions of Yale district.
The map ls lithographed in colors and

MINING NOTES.
The fine new drill rig which haa been
secured by the Home Oil Company, is
fairly at work on the promising oil
fields at Wild Rose prairie, 20 miles
north of Spokane.
For the month of May the mill of
the Great Northern Mining & Development company at Gilt Edge crushed
4400 tons, and the bullion shipments
for the month aggregated a little more
than $34,200.
John Hayes Hammond, well known
through his operations In the Coeur
d'Alenes, Is In Del Monte, Cal. He wfll
leave soon for Ixmdon. On the road
he will examine the Independence at
Cripple Creek.
News has reached here of a rich
quartz strike on Connell gulch, near
Pierce City, Idaho. An eight-Inch
ledgo of free milling ore has been uncovered for 50 feet. It carries values
of $5000 a ton.
The bullion production of tlje mill
of the Central Montana Mines company at lewiston, Montana, for the
month of May was 1043 ounces, having
a valuation of $18,227. Average values
were a little more than $6 per ton.
The Huntley Oil & Reining company, with a capital of $2,500,000, was
chartered in Texas recently. It ls
to prospect In 25 Texas counties for
oil. The board of directors includes
Ctiarles A. Towne of Minnesota and
Governor Benton McMlllen of Tennessee.
During the nine days which ended
last Saturday the Standard mined
3909 tons of crude ore. The total
produce for the year to date has been
71.857 tons, and the Bunker Hill &
Sullivan compuny produced 6000 tons
of ore. The shipments were 800 tons
of concentrates.
A strike has been made on the Hercules at Wallace, Idaho, and while Its
extent Is not determined, there Is
enough ore in sight, to show that it Is
of great Importance. The ledge was
being crosscut when a round it holes
were fired, showing two and a half
feet jf pure carbonate ore.
An assay on some of the ore from
the new strike In the Hercules at
Wallace has yielded 66.2 per oent
lead and 94.7 ounces In silver. That
is a little below the nvernge assays
In lead, but ls unusually high in silver. In the little ore which lt;is been
tnken out since the strike wus made
there a number of samples of wire
silver have been found.
The big legal fight under way between Patrick Clark et al. and Charles
Sweeny for property In the Coeur
d'Alenes, said to be worth a million
dollars, promises to be the biggest suit
of its kind in the history of the northwest. There are giants on each side
of the battle, and there seems no doubt
that they will carry the flght up to thc
tribunals of last resort.
The smelting trust has suddenly
stiffened Its demands upon the mine
owners of tho Coeur d'Alenes. Tho
conference that has been held In New
York has been marked by developments that have surprised the mine
owners considerably. Their surprise
is mixed with indignation. Relations
between them and the smelting trust
are not of the most cordial nature.
The report of the United States assay office at Boise, on the mineral output of Idaho for 1900, has just been
issued. It shows a much greater increase over the previous yenr than had
generally been supposed. The Increase
amounts to over 50 per cent The totals are: Gold, $2,076,036; silver, $8,-
468,839; lead, $7,689,974. Total, $18,-
,236,840. For 1899 the figures were:
Gold, $2,119,718; Bilver, $5,283,443;
lead, $4,713,604. Total, $12,107,765.
Increase of 1900 over 1899. $6,129,075.
A bond on the Eagle group in the
Gilt Edge district, near lewiston,
Mont., has been given by McEvony,
Runzler k Stephens to IL T. Kendall
& Co. The bond runs for one year and
ls for $20,000. The group consists of
flve claims joining the Central Montana mines on the eastern slopes of the
Judith range. The properties are
practically undeveloped, but enough
work has been done to show ore on all
of them.
The Butte & Boston smelter at Butte,
Mont... which has been closed for some
weeks on account of the refusal of the
company to grant outside labor the
eight-hour day provided for miners and
smeltermen, will resume operations in
the morning. The machinists still remain out The smelter employs 300
men. but the starting affects many
times that number in the mines.
The Bunker Hill & Sullivan Mining
& Concentrating Company has filed a
suit in the United States court at Boise
against the Last Chance Mining Company, th eShoshone Mining Company
and the Empire State-Idaho Mining &
Developing Company for $74,000 damages. It is alleged that the defendant
companies have tunnelled Into the
Tyler claim, owned by the Bunker Hill
& Sullivan Company, and appropriated
ore to the value of $74,000.

Chicago, June . 17.—The Tribune
says:
E. H. Harriman was the directing
figure in two' movements begun re-
cently which .are expected to affect
every railroad running west of Chicago and St. Paul. What -Is-believed to
be the first step toward a composite
agreement between tne great roads
running weBt of these cities was per.
fected at a conference held here between Mr. Hai riiiiiin and the officials
of the companies concerned. By u8
terms an Ironclad agreement to eml
rate wars and other complications |a
expected to be spread over all the
roads in the northern group, includ-
Ing the Northern Pacific, the Burling,
ton, the Milwaukee & St. Paul, tho
Union Pacific, the Great Northern
niics. At the southwest the Southern
Pacific and Missouri Pacific will operate hand in hand.
It will be a community of Interests
plan and provides that the Pacific
Mail and Occidental Steamship lines,
controlled by the Southern Pacific,
shall take care of the Santa Fe's
transpacific business. The other move
directed by Mr. Harriman waa the
practical provision for the transfer of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
to the Hurrim'"i syndicate and the
turning nf this line into a link of tlio
Union Pacific system.
This plan was arranged at a secret
conference held at the Auditorium Annex, attended by many railroad men
and a number of bankers.
Little doubt Ib entertained that the
syndicate bas acquired control of the
Milwaukee & St. Paul on practically
u.e same linos that J. J. Hill secured
control of the Burlington. The stock
of the St. Paul road will be taken over
uy the Union Pacific at the October
meeting. It is reported that tho
stockholders of the former line will
be offered $200 of 4 per cent bonds
for every $100 worth of stock, and that
the bonds will be guaranteed by the
Union Pacific, Santa Fn, Missouri Pacific and the Goulds, who are said to
be parties to tho transaction. Certain large stockholders of the St. Paul,
It Is said., have sold or Bell stock to
tne par value of $25,000,000.
The Chicago Tribune says: Thnt the
Harriman combine has secured control
or the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul,
and that a composite Agreement has
been made to perfect a community of
Interests with roads having tracks
enough to twice belt, the globe, is generally accepted ln railroad circles. The
sudden departure of Harriman for thc
east, accompanied by President Mitchell of the Illinois Trust k Savins*
bank, was announced In support of the
statement that Mitchell and other
bankers would furnish the funds for
the completion! of the Milwaukee & St.
Paul transfer. The meeting of tho
western officials with Mr. Harriman is
believed to have been ^he result of the
recent controversy over the control of
the Northern Pacific stock which drove
short holders to cover at $1000 a share.

United States member of The Hague
arbitration court, during an interview
informed the correspondent of the
Associated Press that The Hague arbitration court has only just heen
organized by the appointment of the
last of tho 513 judges, but several International questions are already before the court. The Transvaal question was certainly not one of these,
hecaime The Hague peace conference
has decided tbat the Boer ntates were
not sovereign states. Tbe court will
not be In permanent session, but will
only act when suitable questions are
presented to It, when the whole court
will select a bench to adjudicate ouch
quea tion,
Mr. Hulls said both Count von
Buclow and Union von Rlchtbofen.
the foreign minister, had received
him in the most kindly manner, sharing his belief that The Hague court
was like the Magna Charta, nn Rree-
ment around which the future International law will crystallize. Mr. Holla
believes the emperor, the German government and the German people are
now sincerely in favor of The Hague
arbitration court on all questions
which seem to properly belong there,
Mr. Holls thinks this ls all the more
remarkable because Germany, during
the conference of 1S99. haa at first
a number of serious weighty objections to urge against arbitration. But
she has now honestly altered her
opinion.
During the week the two questions
which mainly occupied public attention were the discussions In the Italian chamber of deputies relative to
the drelbund and Great Britain's attitude toward the question of Germany
maintaining a  garrison at Shanghai.
The press expressed an opinion that
Slgnor Prettlni, the Italian minister
of foreign affairs, can not be relied
upon by the other powers forming tbo
drelbund, although the newspapers incline to the belief that after Friday's
proceedings the continuation of the
drelbund is assured. Government circles never held a different opinion after Premier Zardlni's declarations to
Count von Buclow.
A MONTANA GIRL.

Now Has a Good Complexion.
Her Ailments Gone.
From the I'li.nerr Pre,,. Si. Pan', Minn,
From Florence, Ravalli county,
Mont., comes a cheerful letter, the
writer of which is willing to tell how
she obtained the rioh glow of health
that thousands of women are envious
to possess. Before she found the
right rertiedy sho was in that pale,
emaciated condition which doctors
call anaemic, and whicli, if neglected, inevitably means early death.
Miss May Smith, whose address is
given in the lirst words of this article, says:
i 'Aliout five years ago I became ill
without apparant cause, and I grew
worse until I was completely run
down, The least exertion would
bring on a very severe pain in the pit
of my stomach. • At other times I
would have a paip in my betid, something like neiiialgiii. My kidneys
were very Weak mid my limbs   always
jfelt timl, I was troubled with shortness of breath and I had a pale, blood-
less appearance. There was a smothering   sensation   aliout    my    heart,
j which would beat heavily, with fits of
palpitation. For three years I was
under the cure of two doctors, neither
I ol whom seemed  to  know the nature
'of my trouble. They treated me for
dyspepsia, ulceration of the stomach,
gtistritus and neuralgia, but without
good results.
"Two years ago, when I saw an advertisement in a St. Paul paper of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People,     1    1 gilt   a   box   and    began
taking tbcin. They helped me so
much thai I kept on with them
until I bad taken live boxes altogether, and became well and
strong again. I gained in flesh
and they garve me a healthy color.
I have great faith in Dr. Williams'

London, June 17.—Lord Kitchener
hxs cabled from Pretoria, us follows:
"Near W'elmansrust. 'ib nnleo nortli
of Mlddleburg, 250 Victorian mourned
ritles from General Hcistnn s column,
were surprised lu camp al Stcenkoot
Spruit, by a superior force of Boers,
at I'.'iii p. in.. June 12. Ttie enemy
crept up to within short rniiKc and
poured a deadly lire into the camp,
killing two otlicers aud IG men and
wounding four otlicers and 28 men, of
whom 2S were tslightly wounded. Only
two otlicers and 60 men escaped to ti'-u-
eral Beaston's camp. The remainder
were taken prisoners and released.
Two Pompoms were captured by the
enemy. Full details have uot yet been
received."
The serious reverse which l__ortl
Kitchener reports Is the first accident
of the kind that has happened to the
Australian contingent, and it is supposed to be due to neglect of proper
picketing. Although It Is offset by the
defeat Inflicted upon Dewet, the loss
of the guns Is regarded as a serious
matter which will encourage the lloers
to continue the struggle.
More or less fanciful accounts are

New York, June 17.—The Financier
says:
Large syndicate operations are reflected
in the bank statement of June 15. liie
excess reserve was again heavily decreased and stands at $8,782,125, compared
with !H21,380,000 on May 25, a loss of over
$12,000,000 in three weeks. In this period
the loans of the Ixink have risen not less
than $42,000,000 and deposits $44,000,000,
while the amount of the cash on hand is
about $1,700,000 lens than oil the former
date. It appears, therefore, that the banks
are not losing much particularly, but that
the increasing liubilitie., are tying up a
large amount of otherwise idle money in
the former reserves against deposits.
This is worthy of mention only in the
sense that the large operations noted are
of a more or less temporary character
and their consummation may set free
quite an amount of available funds in the
near future. The July dividend period is
largely lieing arranged for and will exert
an influence in the market soon. The
particular features Which arc shown in the
current statement are traceable to the
Pennsylvania steel purchase antl kindred
deals, and the loss of one and a half millions in cash is due to movements of
money iu the direction of Philadelphia
whicli were heavy during tlie kink week,
and to operations witli tlie subtreasurv
at New Turk.

sia, Germany, France and Great Britain.

assert there is no necessity for fOrmal acceptance by the powers of the limit ot
4150,000,000 tafia.
'Ihey point out that each power presented its claim for damages j that thane were
lumped together, and ihat tbe aggregutt
was tlie limit of the demand accepted by

no necessity for further discussion of this
point. .Reflecting the \icws of their governments, these gentlemen express doubt

Scrofula
Scrofula is an unwelcome legacy, but one which
thc children of blood poisoned parentage must
accept, with all ita humiliating consequences. It is
an inheritance that makes one poorer; that brings
wretchedness and disease instead of health and
riches, forthe child whose ancestral blood is tainted
with Scrofula or the loathsome virus of Contagious
Blood Poison is unfitted for tlie arduous duties of
life so long as any of the transmitted poison remains
in its veins. Scrofula manifests itself in various forms; swollen glands abont tke
neck and throat, catarrh of the head, weak eyes, hip bone disease, white swelling
and offensive sores and abscesses are familiar symptoms, attended usually witli
1068 of strength, poor digestion and pale or bloodless complexion. The skin is
sometimes most dreadfully affected, eruptions breaking out on all parts of the body.
Scrofula destroys bone, tissue and flesh; no part of the human system escapes ita

Attorney General is paid for advising

by the Chairman- of tbe Board and by
the Chief Licence Inspector concerning the powers of the Commissioners
to deal with the applications for liquor
licences from Slocan. Letters were

and asking advice nearly three weeks
ago. These have not been acknowledged nor has the desired advice come

gentleman knew that the regular

It may be news to some to bei»r

Dunsmuir Government, has entered
into t partnership with tbat great

Our Government is taking tbn people's
money to pay the wages of trackwalkers, in the guise of special constables, to scab in the places of the
striking C. P. R. trackmen in tbis
Province. There has been no talk of
trouble nor threats of violence by tbe
strikers, but our Government is so
afraid that their dear friend may bo
inconvenienced and obliged to pay a
living wojje to its trackmen that the
B. 0. Government nt once opened the
public purse to help out its friend.
This partnership, from the people's
point of view, rosy look one sided, but
it is hard to say, judging from tbeir
actions, just what tbe C. P. P*. has
done for some of our politicians and
tliey may have golden reasons for
tbeir actions.

Sucb is tbe language of a portion of

As a matter of fact uo sn.-h resolution was passed or discussed at tbe
