A hut snd lsss grew up together,
In esch other .lid confide;
A tew bright dsvs of summer weather,
Found them side by side,
The voices of the lair young twain
Rose mingling thence in mirth,
And sweetly floated o'er the main,
The melodies of earth.
Moonlight on the Hucuber River,
Cloudless and lovely slept;
While the swish of Ilia steady oar
Time to the music kept.
0 eves, dark blue ss the ocean,
That sleep where the lilies grow;
These waken sweetest memories,
But, darling, 'twas long ago.
For I miss the sound of your voice, dear,
So soft and so low as of old;
When I think of the days that are gone,
The present seems dreary and cold.
1 know you are wsiting lor me, dear,
And some day you'll welcome me
Whore that sad word "Good-bye" Is
Aud we'll know no parting or rare.

Season-Our Line Sixty Miles Long-
Insurgent Army Scattered -The Masses
Desire Peace -Volunteers Relieved,
Washington, June 27—Oeneral Otis, in
reply to a cable from the war department
asking for information regarding the situation and conditions in the Philippines
today, cables a long reply, as follows:
"Manila, June 27.—Adjutant Oeneral,
Washington: Dui ig the rainy season them
can bc little inland campaigning in Luzon.
We occupy the larger portion of the Tag-
alo country, our lines stretching from
Imus on the south to San Fernando on the
north, nearly 00 miles, and eastward into
Laguna province.
"The insurgent armies have suffered
gi losses and are scattered. The only
large force together is about 4000 in Tar-
Is. province and north, rn Pampanga. Their
scattered forces are in bands of from 60 to
500. In oilier portions of Luzon, in Cavite
and Katanga* provinces, they could assemble possibly 2000, though they are demoralized from recent defeats.
"The mass of the people, terrorized hy
the insurgents' soldiers, desire peace and
American protection. They no longer flee
on the approach of our troops, unless
forced hy the insurgents, but gladly welcome them. There has been no recent
burning of towns.
"The population within our lines is becoming dense, taking up land cultivation
extensively. They are kept out of Manila
as much as possible, as the city population is becoming too great to be cared for.
The natives in southeast Luzon are combining to drive out the insurgents.
"Tlie only hope of the insurgent leaders
is for United States aid. They proclaim
the near overthrow of the present administration, to be followed by their independence and recognition hy the United
States. This is the influence which enables them to hold out. Much contention
prevails among them, and no civil government remains.
"Trade with ports not in our possession,
and formerly the source of insurgent revenue, is now interdicted, but I am not certain of the wisdom of this policy, as the
people iu these parts are without supply
of food and thc merchants are suffering
losses. 1 meditate restoring trade privileges, although the insurgents may reap
thc benefits.
"The courts are in successful operation
nnder the direction of able Filipinos.
■'Affairs in other islands are comparatively quiet, awaiting the results in Luzon.
They are anxious for trade and repeated
calls for American troops are received. 1
am giving attention to the Joio and
Palawan islands.
"The American troops have worked to
the limit of endurance. The volunteer organizations have been called in and replaced by regulars, who now occupy the
salient positions. Nebraska, Pennsylvania
and Utah are now taking transports and
the Sixth infantry has been sent to Negros
to relieve the Californians. These troops
are in good physical condition.
"Sickness among the troops has intreas
ed lately, due mostly to arduous servic.
and climatic influences. There is nothing
alarming, however. Of the 12 per cent of
the command reported sick, nearly six are
in the general hospital, of whom 3 per cent
have typhoid and 17 malarial fever; 12
per cent have various ailments, 14 of which
are due to wound injuries. Many officers
and men who served in Cuba, break down
under recurrence of the Cuban fever, and
thc regular regiments lately received are
Inadequately officered. OTIS."

Regimental Association was delayed by
railroad washouts which held back Governor Theodore Roosevelt of New York,
who as colonel of the famous organization

of the affair. For two days the crowds
bad been gathered from near and far until
this morning the little city of Us Vegas
was tilled as she has seldom been before.
Colonel Roosevelt has arrived and was
greeted as he stepped off the platform of
the rear car with tremendous cheering
from ."iOOO people, massed around the depot. The noted New Yorker was clad in
his Rough Rider unifonn and was easily
recognized by tlie crowd. He was almost
lifted bodily from his feet by the press
of persons anxious to grasp his hand and
as lie and his party made their way slowly
to the Castcnado hotel the crowds surged
after him. He looked in excellent heulth
and seemed to appreciate the hearty enthusiasm of the people who greeted h.'iu.
As he wiilk.il down the depot sidewalk a
line of Rough Riders sainted and joined
in the general ovation.
A party of Rough Riders and citizens
met Colonel Roosevelt and party at

made, as had been anticipated. On the
way down Colonel Roosevelt remarked:
"Captain Luna was the first man I spotted.'
As he met his old comrades in arms he
ejaculated heartily: "1 am glad to see
you," "It does me good to shake your
paws," "How are you*;" and similar expressions, evincing his hearty sympathy.

Washington, June 24.—lt ia regarded
an a conservative estimate that the treasury de-eit for the lineal year of 18.U,
w'-lch Hoses 10 days hence will be less
than' $100,000,000. Already the receipt*
for the year aggregate over |4S0^OO,OUO,
with the expenditures barely $100,000,000
more with 10 days, judging from pa-t
years, of heavy receipt* yet to be ac
counted for.
Up to this date customs receipts
amount to over KSdOO,000,000; from internal revenues, $203,650,000 was realized
and from miscellaneous sources there wa*
receive- $3r>,500,000. Tlie total receipt*
from all sources last year amounted tu
$405,921,836, while the exjj-mjiturea aggregated $443,30_,u82, leaving a dclicit ol
From the closest calculation that can
now be made the war revenue account,
which with the exception "of a few items
went into cllis't July i, 181)8, will reali/.e
lor the year a little less than $100,000,000.
The receipts from tobacco alone will
probably show an increase of $16,000,000;
spirits, an increase of $05,600,000; beer
and Other fermented liquors, an increase
of over $-.8,000,000 and olcumargarinc
un increase of $585,000.
The two items which have produeil
more than 10 times us much revenue as
any two others are those applying the
documentary and proprietary stamp*. On
April 30 last these items had produced
over $30,600,000 and it is not probable
ihat by July 1 tlie total will exceed $44,-
1100,000. The tax on legacies will prob-
at.ly produce not much in excess ot $1,-
UU0,0UV, while the special tax collected
from bankers will exceed $3,000,000.
The expenditures up tu this time tji-
gregata about $000,000,000. of thi*
amount $28,000,000 was paid out on req
ui .lions from the war department. $K4,-

public debt; $12,076,000 was paid to the
Iii.1i.iii-) and $117,270,000 was disbursed
on civil und miscellaneous account.
At thia time it is impossible to state
with any degree of certainty what the
war with Spain and the troubles in the
lliilippines have ooet during this year,
hut an approximation has beeu made of
the actual cost payments on these ac-
■ .-..nt-t which places the amount at $230,-
A calculation has been made at the
treasury which shows that leaving out
of the reckoning t-e $230,000,000 expended this year on account of the war, the
$100,000,000 produced by the war revenue
man the Central Pacific the figures would
account and the $11,7.8,314 received
show a surplus for the year, approxiinat-
ing $20,000,000.

A Ion}; cipher mema^e from (ieneral
Otis, sent to Washington and thence relayed to Adams without the usual official
editing, lias caused Itesident McKinley
uwny uneasy moments. All that Otis toll
die president is not known, but the cor-
respondefll is enabled lo mnke this state
"ti« plainly intimated his inability ho
ronquer the Filipinos with the present

ground already taken unless reinforcements were quickly aent.
Kn-ni thc very beginning of the Philippine war Otis hss been an optimist, lie
has made official Washington believe he
could crush the rebellion with his present
•tr.-ii^'th, and instead of reporting lhe true
"itiistion, he has made his daily dii"-
••.iiches conform to the picture as he saw
it through his colored glasses. Now, how*
wr, that Otis is no longer able to suc-
'*-**ilii]|y distort facts, thc true state of
sffsirs is coming to light and he is forced
to tell things which he might like to hide.
It is possible that Oeneral Otis soon may

In Sheridan < ...up.
This is what Col. Topping of Trail,
B. C, who has been superintending
tbe development of the Zella M and
Fanny Woodworth claims in Sheridan
camp, Washington, says: "The claims
adjoin each other and are owned by
the Zella Consolidated Mining company. A shaft on the Zella M has been
sunk to a depth of 150 feet. At the
100-foot level Ib a drift 50 feet long and
50 feet further down there ls another
drift 150 feet long. These will be extended so as to develop the Fanny
Woodworth, whose northern boundary
ls not far from the main working shaft.
Starting from the surface on a ledge
two and a half feet wide, the miners
have never been without ore all the
way down. There nre four feet of ore
In both the drifts. It Is especially of
high grade character In the south drift
and can be shipped without sorting.
The surface outcropplngs on the property are over 3,000 feet long and contain good pay ore."
Mining in Sheridan camp can be carried on cheaper and more advantageously than In Rosslend camp. An average experience Ib to sink at the rate
of one foot per day. The values In the
Zella M also give from 4 to 5 per cent,
in copper.
On the same vein the company Is
working two other claims, the Rebecca
and the Kitty Clyde. Near it Is another vein seven feet wide. Though
no experimental shipment has been
made, the ore is high grade and similar
to that found on the Zella M. Next to
It Is the Discovery, owned by an eastern Oregon company. Tbe shaft Is
down 60 feet High grade silver sulphide ores have been struck. One mile
to the south is the Little Chester which
has tbe same ledge as the Zella M. The
former has an ore body four feet wide,
rich In high grade silver, Including a
large quantity of silver glance.
Joining the Kitty Clyde and between
that and the Little Chester, ls the Ely
claim, owned by John H. Ogden of Spokane, which has several leads running
through it. Though little work has
been done the showing ts very good.
Col. Topping estimates that there
are $250,000 worth of ore In sight, ranging in value from $200 to 500 per ton.
The ratio of tbe values in silver and
gold are as ten to one.
The same gentleman owns the Polar
Fraction claim, between the Zella M.
and the American Flag claims, joining
the Uncle Sam and Polar Star group.
A fine four-foot vein of quartz has been
uncovered on this, carrying similar
ore to Uncle Sam vein.
There is said to be much free gold
visible to the naked eye in the Trade
Dollar ore. Some of the fine quartz
and dirt were panned out yesterday
and showed a streak of gold all around
the pan.
Work will be resumed soon on the
Blue Bird and continued until a mine
is developed.
There is a report that there has been
a reorganization of the Copper Mountain company and that work will be
started up within the next ten days.
The water has been taken out of the
Princess Maud shaft and work begun.
The shaft will be sunk to the level of
the drift. This work has become necessary for better ventilation.
The drift has ben started north In
the Delta. There ls no change ln the
asBay value of the ore.
The ore ln the Morning Glory is said
to be betting better as the winze goes
The Tom Thumb is being developed from the 100-foot level. A drift on
the five-foot level ledge encountered
there has been extended 25 feet. The
ore Is of medium grade, but is said to
carry uniform values.
The Flag Hill assays are still high.
The cross tunnel to tap the big ledge Ib
being pushed rapidly. It will take a
month to reach the ledge.
In the Gold Ledge at a depth of 110
feet the ledge was crosscut In this
crosscut it is about 24 feet between the
hanging wall and the footwall.
The Gold Mountain claim Is not being worked.
The Gold Ledge Extension Is Idle.
Everything Is going smoothly In the
Mountain Lion. It Is a veritable
mountain of ore. Every day's progress
adds materially to its value. There Is
ore everywhere.

The Gold Boy group, in eastern Oregon, about 30 miles from Baker City,
has ben bonded to the Spokane Co-operative Mining Company, for $60,000.
Work is to be commenced at once upon
the property, It being proposed to do as
much development as possible before
the bond comes due next December.
The Tacoma smelter has refused to
enter the big smelter trust and Is preparing Instead to double Its present capacity, making lt the largest smelter
west of Denver. Negotiations are now
pending between the owners of the Everett smelter and the promoters of the
smelter trust. As yet no definite arrangements have been made whereby
thc Everett smelter will join the trust.
The Tacoma smelter now has a capacity of 190 tons daily. With proposed
improvements it will be able to handle
350 tons daily, making It the second
largest in the country.
L. M. Johnson and Henry Summer-
camp, of Weiser, Idaho, have returned
to Boise from a trip beyond Banner.
They went to examine a mine there.
The gentlemen bonded the property
and say It is one of the richest gold-
bearing claims they have ever seen. A
gold ledge has been opened. They
brought down 400 pounds of the ore, in
which gold can be seen with the naked
eye. The ore goes several thousand
dollars to the ton, and rivals even the
richest of Buffalo Hump. '
A recent land decision is as follows:
On the death of a homesteader, leaving
a widow and heirs, the widow takes the
homestead right of her husband free
from any claim on behalf of the heirs,
and is vested with full power to complete the entry for her own benefit or
to relinquish the same If she so elects.
A survey of a mining claim made before the date of recording the location
of the claim cannot be regarded as the
official survey contemplated by law.
When estimating the $500 worth of
work necessary to secure patent, any
work done by former owners who had
abandoned their claim can not be considered as part of the expenditure.
A mining claim Is not subject to relocation by other parties until an abandonment by the original owners is established. Non-compliance with the
laws, federal and local, constitutes an

San Francisco, June 2..—Dr. Charles
McQuestrin, who was on tlie staff of General (His and who was health officer at
Manila, lias returned home invalided by
the climate.
Captain McQuestrin made a close study
of thc conditions of the Philippine situation .He is of the opinion that it will
take 100,000 to 150,000 soldiers to properly Hiibdue and hold the islands.
He also says tliat the peace commission
was an absolute failure and that its work
from the start was without effect. He
strongly supports the military government of the islands, except that he thinks
more men will be necessary than lias been
estimated. He says Dr Schunnau kno ws
that the commission is a failure and is
coming home in July
"L'nlcss the troops, thousands of them
are sent to the aid of our men there, they
will be driven back to Manila in the
course of the next few months, during the
rainy season. Our men simply can not
stand the climate. Fifty per cent of them
will be Incapacitated by sickness. Manila
will be in a state of siege again.
"One of the greatest dangers that our
men have to face is thc climate The ne.*.
comers will be at a disadvantage because
the volunteers who are returning home
are inured to the climate As a matter
of belief, the Filipinos think they have
the Americans licked already."

Tho outlook and   prospect  for   the
future growth and prosperity   of  Sil—
rortonv were nerer better than  at  the
present   time.    Ntjw   discoveries  of
mineral are being made almost daily,
aud comparativeiy new properties .sre
rapidly being transformed  into shipping mines.    Iu spite) of the lock-out
and strike,  that is   now   on,   about
which    the   soreheads,    heelers   and
pessimists are making suc-li  a   to-do,
the fact  remains   that  thero   are  at
present more men at work than before
the strike, all at union wages,   and   a
larger number employed than  at this
time   last   year.    .Any   qui*  familiar
with the  facts,   knows,   that   fur this
time of thn year, there are more men
At, work, more  new   properties   beiny
opened up and  more important  deals
ou the tapis, than  ever before.     The
new properties   that   are   being   developed have  come  to stay   and   will
prove themselves important factors  iu
adding to the   wealth and growth  of
this place, ani  all of our old   mines
wilt soon bu working as usual.

It will be consoling for those mine
managements in this locality who
closed down their properties in sympathy with the Lead Mine Owners'
Association, although having no
grievance of their own, to know that
thoir discharged entployees are all at
work opening up new propeities, while
their own titiii**.* are lying idle, losing
money for their owners,- and aUo that
tbe mines for which they shut* down
are preparing to ship in it winter as
usual, when the mines of the former
will be doing development work that
should now be going on.
With this issuo the -ilyprtokun,
passes the third milestone in its career,
and enters upon a new y ar with
ro»y prospects for the future. Born
uuder cauvaE, it has grown in site and
circulation and only once has its
editor seen the inside of a gaol. It
has seen, during its short life, the
many prospects in oar hills grow into
shipping mines and although forced to
record a few failures, it has reported
on many successes, The Bilverton-
ian has seen the boom and the
rebound, and in the now steady permanency of the camp, hopes to be able
in the future to represent one of the
best towns and wining centres of West
Kootenay. In beginning Volumn
III, we wish to thank the many past
patrons of our columns and hope by
virtue of a rapidly growing circulation
to gain their futuie patronage.
That tho rights of wage-workers Rre
protected and secured by organization,
and that wages ato upheld by Unions
mutt be conceded by every man capable
of rei-soiiing well. Is it. not strange,
then, tliat any wage-workers should
reiuse their equal assistance iu maintaining tlio Unions?
I (hiuk that it is; nnd, furthermore, I
tli ink that it is dishonest.
For if it is true that because of the
existence of Unions wapes are fifty eents
a day higher than they would bp were
their no Unions, and if non-union men,
when tbey -work, receive that extra fifty
cents per day, then it is verv plain that
ihey leceive a benefit for which
Hiey have not paid; and surely this is
Sur yet does that put the mutter in as
strong a light us it should be put. Fur
uot only do non-union men receive the
wanes that they have not equally l.el..» d
to uphold; but, fur worse, bv remaning
out of the unions they have made it more
exi«iisive and difficult to those withi-
the unious to keep wages up: mid thus
they are receiving benefits from those
they are all the time injuring; which, in
my   opiuion, is very   contemptible.
From which it ought to be concluded
ihat I have i.o complimentary opinion oi
a non-union mau working i*i a union
To be a bit entitled to respect those
wuge-woikers who have "co uscientious
scruples" ugaiust belonging to a union
Hhould conscientiously, leuiove to a
district where thu ali-.net.- of unions has
allowed wages to reach a figure thut
tbey can cunscieutioualy accept.
Aud it ia a fact that these "unaichistic"
aad **arbitrury" unions oidiuuiily do
object to permitting men who are too
utterly good and radically respect able
to belong to a union to remain in u
union dlstric t drawing dividends that
the union has bought and paid for.
Whereupon these "respectable"
goodv-goodys indignantly declare it at
tbey will uot be compelled to join a
union; aud apparently tbey lire V( r\
proud of what tbey are pleased to cull
their "personal lib rly."
Fie uppn them!
If tl'.ey had both sense nnd decency
ihey would never wait lo be forced to do
a thing so simply  honest.
For myself, I am an anarchltt, and
(.onsequeiitly I cannot consent to compel ling nor to being compelled.
Nevertheless, if one is forced to flVht,
I think it sensible to fight at least hard
euough to win. And this wsge stiu^gle,
the world over, Is ft itiout forced upon
intelligent union men by igtiorsct con-
union men. For if all were union men
or if all wage- workers would vo-ie together and in one party, as they leneibl)
most, there would be no snch thing as
strikes or lockouts.
Likewise, if all wore non union   men
there wonld be no str ikes tor  lockouts.
There    would     be   only  the  lesceful
degradation of the most abject slavery.
For over a month there bus I ten a
Miners' Union in Silverton. It wss
organized to keep np wages and to pro-
mole a spirit of brotherhood among I bote
whose interests are identical.
It has patiently waited for   all  wage
workers of the camp  to come    ;n,  not
doeB it now  propose  to compel  any to
come in.   This tin inn does not want unwilling members.   But it considers nonunion wage-workers i     worst enemies
not even excepting non-union ennplo)crs.
And we do not love our enemies
