the Ymlr Mines. This brings .the total
dividend returned to shareholders to
date up to $192,000, out of which $144,-
000 has been distributed during the
present year.
A pronounced Improvement has come
over the mining situation in the Slocan
in the last three weeks, and the hard
luck atoriee are getting fewer. At least
200 men have been added to the forces
of the camp,and the list of working
properties Is steadily increasing.
A deal has Just heen consummated at
Vancouver, B. C, by which the Britannia mines, one of the richest copper
properties in British Columbia, has
passed Into control of an American syndicate. The Investment was made on
the report of George H. Robblns, consulting engineer of P. Augustus Heinze
of Butte, Mont, who after Inspecting
the property acquired a controlling In-
ityreat on behalf of bis principals, having invested $100,000 in buying shares.
Under the new management the mine
will be aetlvely operated aid many improvements made.
Amazing Improvements are under
way at the Le Roi in Rossland and
at tbe Northport smelter, where Ita
ores are handled. When the new machinery ls In place the handling of the
ore will be automatic from the time
that It is broken down In yie stopes
until It lands ln the furnace of the
smelter. During all that time lt will
not be touched once by hand, nor will
It be so much aa shoveled. It is hardly
a stretch of language to declare that
the ore will flow in an endless stream
from tbe stopes Into the "melting furnaces 18 miles away.
The Improvements at the Le Roi are
practically completed. The new sur
face plant, which coat a quarter of ft
million dollars, was started In January
laat. It haa a capacity for handling
about 1600 tone of ore In 10 hours. So
completely baa machinery taken the
place of human labor that out of the
late force of 700 men only about 20 per
cent were muckers. ' The reef of the
crew was made up et skilled miners,
engineers, mechanic* and the like
When operations at the mine are reop
ened the workmen will have one of the
finest plants In the country.
Tho Le Roi la peculiarly well suited
for economical mining. It has an Immense-body of low grade ore. Stopes
140 feet wide have been opened on the
700. toot level. Ore is being quarried
rather than mined across the whole of
that extraordinary breast. The ore
kbody extends with varying widths for
'a quarter of a mile.
It was once the practice to pick up
the'ore broken In the stopes and throw
it Into the ore car. Now, however, a
chute Is built underneath the stope,
and all the ore falls Into It. The carman opens a gate at the bottom of the
chute and the ore falls into the car.
He wheels It to shaft and dumps lt Into
a pocket. A gate operated by compressed air releases the ore and lets
It fall Into tbe skip, which rune up to
the surface at a speed of 3000 feet a

The El Caliph has been placed among
the listed stocks on the Spokane mining
board. Returns from the fourth shipment of ore from that mine at Republic
to the Granby smelter ran over $117

News comes from Dawson of extraordinary activity In tlie Yukon basin
ln respect to mining districts to be
reached by the Yukon river. Prospecting parties are penetrating every part
of the great basin, determined on ascertaining whether there are any fresh

on Lake creek, In the Big Salmon, are
the latest finds of most Importance.
The Coeur d'Alene mines are working pretty close to 2000 mi!ta. This is

Iowa, and Alfred Sterns of Baker. The
Belcher consists of six claims. The
principal work haa beer, done on the
Belcher and the Gold King. The ledge
ls from eight to twenty feet wide and
the ore runs from $8 to $10 to the ton.

• San Franclscd, Aug. 12.—Jack Winters, who was arrested for the Selby
smelting works robbery, has confessed the crime, and so far $130,000
worth of bullion has been recovered
from the 'bay, whero he had sunk It.
Por three days the detectives have
tried all sorts of intimidation to make
Winters confess, but their threats apparently had no effect upon him.
Finally he asked to see Superintendent Ropp of the works, who. he said,
was the only friend he had. In his
conversation with Ropp Winters manner Indicated that he knew where tne
gold had been hldt|i n. Ropp told him
that they had a strong case against
him and that he would he sent to
prison for 30 years.    He said:
"You will be an old man when you
get out and It will doyou no good to
hide the gold. We know It is hidden
In the water.near the works and we
will search every inch. You may be
sure that the gold will be found before
vou ,j;et out of prison."
Winters finally weakened and told
Ropp that he had taken the gold, and
would take him to the spot where It
was hidden. The criminal, in company with Superintendent Ropp and
a force of detectives, left on a tug for
Crockett. There thev waited all night
for the low tide. Winters pointed out
the place at the end of the railroad
whart, behind the coal bunkers, at
the beginning of the Vallejo slip. £1
that point at low tide the mud ls about
four feet deep, covered by a foot of
water. When the tug first reached

and the tug steamed away to wait foi

Up to 10 o'clock $110,000 worth had
been recovered. This includes thr
four bars of fine gold. Winters had
put some of the bars In bags. He said
that one of the bags had broken and
some small bars had dropped out. It
Is now only a question of_ carefu'
search to* find, the rest of tl)e $260,000
Winters claims that he did the jol
nil alone. He says that'he made.14
trips from the vault to the wharf from
which he dropped the gold. Tin
smelter oflieials. however, art positive
thnt he received assistance fi'iim sonu
one. The detectives .think that hi;
story that he did it fill himself is cor
rect. ,
Tbe tug with the detectives and the
prisoner, Winters, on board has re
turned to the city.
Winters, when he had made ap hir
mind to tell all he knew about.the
crime, was exceedingly willing toiglvi
all the information that was necessary for the recovery of the .bullion
He practically assumed $harge of the
operations arid led Captain Seymour
am* Superintendent Ropp to the dock.
He acted more like one of the detee'
tives employed than as a -prisoner. Af
soon as he arrived at the water's edge
he called the superintendent to hb'
side and said: "Now watch where
I am going to show. Be careful that
vou eet the locations right."
Stooping.' he picked up three litoriis
and pacing forward he tossed one of
them Into the water. It. fell to ♦the
south of the spot at which the prls
oner stood. Another rftone fell to the
east and the third was thrown directly
in front of Winters.
"That," paid the prisoner, "w.ll!
mark Uie water boundary of the place
where your geld Is hidden."    .
Stepping to the left. Winters drew
a nail from his pocket arid asked for
a hammer. He then paced off a few
yards to the right and drove another
nail In the t    ' "    '   '■'*
"The gold." ne coidnifed; "will he
between these two nails, somewhere
In line with the stones I just, tossed
Into the water."
A small boat was secured, and Into
It Sheriff Veale, Detective Klnttiall of
the Pinkerton agendy anil'two laborers were loaded. Winters assisted in
the search for the bricks. He talke*
glibly all the while. The deep mud
Anally put a stop to operations, and
It wbb decided to build a cofferdam
before trying to recover the rest of
the treasure.
Winters told the officers that he
planned the robbery long ago with
minute detail. He had been two or
three months on the work on his Hltlj
tunnel. ■        ,,
It had taken two nights' labor to
cut through the brick ..wall of the
cmelter. Most of th« boi Ing In the
bottom tit the vaults had been done
on the night when th'e gold was taken.'
He carried the plunder, which was
heavy, from the vault to the water and
deposited It where the wat«r Was from
three to six feet deep at low tide. The
distance from the vault to this cache
was 'about a quarter of a mile and h^
made 14 round trips. Hi was at
work four hours on Monday night.
Pour small bars of refined gbld he
concealed among the stones of the
breakwater. Just at the further mouth
of the railroad tunnel.
His purpose had been  to use  this
niit  lire at at Louis.

ifternnon, entailing a  loss  estimated  at eelved that dnwp was breaking.    Not

,the shore the two bricks which were
found at the point where the robber's
boat was supposed to hAve landed.
The trail of red pepper ending at that
point haa been a. blind. » -
In view of the fact that promises
of clemency were made Winters In
consideration of his unearthing the
gold, it Is thought that his punistar en*
Will be light.
'ndrtW.tive Gibson Is quoted 'aA-SHS'.-

be prosecuted, but ahould receive $25,-

."Winters caii 'riot, be prosecuted;"
said- Detective Gibson, "for there is
no evidence against him. All that' has

by the 'detectives under promise that
it would not ' used against him. Under jmch circumstances it would be

a matter of fact, the Shamrock Il's

The outlook for an amicable settlement of the strike in San Francisco

A. Diaz Ouerrera, agfcnt In New York'

ihat a bloody battlfe was fought at Palo
Negro in the latter part of May. The
conillct lasted 17 days. The battle was
drawn at the end of that period, the
Insurgent* retiring when their ammunition waa exhausted and the government troops being too badly cut up to

At Tampa, Fla., 100 business men,
In order to end the strike of La Re-

they were sent out to a vossel outside
tbe bar and taken to the gulf. Ex-
cltemenlrprevailed biit no rioting occurred. It Is said that an attempt was
made to assemble the clgarmakers'
strike leaders In a conference and capture In itf.ill together, but i-s the strikers heard of it they dispersed. The
search for the leaders, followed.
Miguel Mlllvar, "who has been recognized aa tbe successor of Aguiiialdu
by the Filipino junta at Hong Kong,
has issued a proclamation, dated July
16, copies of which recently arrived,
diving assurance to the natives of the
continuation ot- an active campaign
.unl expressing hope for lu successful
lisua. The American ofll.-ials believe
i:m proclamation was really written
by Agoncillo (the former representative of Aguinaldo In Kurope), at Hong
KotiK. and he' probably'has never seeu

whole ami which indicate that it ts
only a question of time when complete
peace will prevail throughout the islands. There has lieen fighting during
the year, but the Insurrection as a formidable waging of war by anything
like a central organization has practically come to an end. There remain
only a few small scattered bands engaged In separate guerrilla campaigns
and these are becoming .gradually suppressed.
Naval officers are deeply Interested
ln the visit of Captain Chadwick to
Secretary Long at Hingham, as it Is
believed that the secretary was told
the t. ae state of Admiral Sampson's
mind. When Chadwick visited the Boston navyyard his talk with Sampson
disclosed the fact that the latter was
completely unstrung, in a highly nervous state and his recollection of
names, dates and places seriously impaired. The most important events in
the administration of the yard Were
unknown to Sampson, Chadwick
found, that the nearest and best friends
Sampson had were strangers to him
to quite the same extent as if they lived
on the other side of the world.

Shin Diseases
Eczema, Teto^, Psoriasis, Salt Rheum, Acne and a great jnanjr other
diseases of like character are classed as, skin diseases, when tbey could just as
properly bo called blood diseases, for they undoubtedly originate in the blood, like
Cancer, Catarrh, Scrofula, Rheumatism, Contagious Blood Poison, etc ; the only
teal difference lieing in the Intensity and nature of the poison. The more serious
4iseases, Cancer, Catarrh, etc., are caused by some specific poison or virus, which
is either fhlierited-or in. other>ways gets into the blood and attacks certain vital
organs or sppears in the form of terrible sores and ukers, while the milder and
k>s danjjci'i nis skin diseases are caused by blood humors or au over acid cp.niiitiou

pores of the skin become so
clogged up by tbis treatment that the poisonous matter thrown off by the blood
cannot pass out of the system, and settles on the lungs, heart or some other vital

To purify and build up the polluted blood is the right treatment for skin
diseases, and for this purpose no other medicine is so deservedly popular ns S. S. S.
It is a perfect antidote for. all blood humors, and when taken into the circulation,
gently but thoroughly eliminates all impurities and puts the blood in a healthy,
normal state. The skin can't remain in an irritated, diseased condition 'when
nourished with rich, new blood. S. S. S. is the only guaranteed purely vegetable ••
remedy, and the safest and best skin beautifier. Write our physicians if you have
any blood or skin disease, and they will cheerfully advise you without charge.

being made on the part ot the management to start them up, all their
attention apparently being taken op by
the attempt to run their Northport

their efforts have proved a failure and

When the Crows' Nett railroad
aaked for a charter a greet howl waa
raised by the O. P. R. organs because
the line, if built, would haul B. 0
coal ont of the Province. Now tbe
aame organs, without a note of comment, tell that the strike in Sen
Francisco baa shut off the market for
ths Coast collieries and has shut down
the mines. Our market for coal ia
without the Province; everyone knew
that at the time, but the cry wu an
excelient one to shout at silly patriots.
The Victoria Colonist says that
Premier Dunsmuir has the confidence
of tbe people; no doubt he baa had the
confidence of the people And haa abused
that confidence by bis selection of
Cabinet Ministers to such nn extent

have had a confidence game played
upon them. Let there be a re-
construction of tbat cabinet, aa be
promised his supporters, or let bis
supporters wbo support him by reason
of that promise show their manhood
and votoagginat this government and
earn for themselves tbe confidence and
gratitude of a disgusted electorate.
At last we hnvareoived news of •

were too many white men being employed around the factory. Tbe white
men were find snd so the Chinamen
won one of tbe ttat successful strikes
in British Columbis. So it takes
Chinamen to run Canadian industriea

British Colombia il concerned iu a

Tbey cannot go into the army and the

The Mongolian question in tbia

to serious, tbat. if Canada wishes to
save herself from the disgrace of a
series of Rock Springs maaaacres she
will .move in this matter nt once, in

Will the Lead Refinery be Built or Not.
Opinions   From  Headquarters.
It ia aaid on what is thought to be
good authority, says Ihe Nelson Miner,
that two months aco the CPR took a
bond on arms property immediately ea-t
i.f the Fairview losnsite for the purpose
of securing it for refinery  nml  »melt«r
purposes     II the refinery were built
It waa tlmletention of ths company at
Uie aame time to erect a lead ainefter
with » capacity at first of 300 tons a dav,
to be increased considerably later. The
reason that the bond wax allowed to
lapse is aaid to ho because lhe company
could nol, despite the immense outoui
possible from tlw Slocan aod K»-t Koot-
euay silver lead min**, arrange for a
certain and sore supply lo keep the smelter and refinery going steadily and for
that reason decided not to go ahead with
the matter nntil the labor situation especially tnok on a more definite phase
than ia at present the case.
That there has been some strong influence at work preventing satisfactory
arrangements being made ia slsu hinted
at. The opening of Ihe lead refinery here
snd the consequent rreat iar.petua that
wonld be given to silver-le.nl mining
throughout the Kootenays would seriously interfere wilh the plana of the America
lead trust, which is credited with being

With a proper market provided It waa
estimated 00 reliable data that in one
year tha production would litve risen to
80,000 tons and in t wu yenrs to 100,000
tons. Thu*even undes favorable circumstances it would take two yesrs to
have a suflkiant tonnage, and under Ihe
