MINING NOTKS.
The DeLamar mine of Nevada is 100
miles from a railroad, but pays 90 per
cent of the bullion tax of that state.
A cyanide method is used in the 400-
ton mill, and $6.00 ore ls treated at a
profit
The April clean-up at the Red Boy
mine in Baker county, Oregon, ls $127,-
000. This amount was deposited by

made recently, consisting of 12 cars,
aggregating 300 tons, to be shipped to
Butte, Helena, and Big Timber. The
output will be increased from day to
day, the development work being pushed in three shifts. By July 15th an
output of 1,000 tons per day will be
reached.
It is said mat American miners and
prospectors are arriving in Cuba in
large numbers and the report comes
from Santiago that some of them from
the western states have recently located six gold mines in the Holguln district. These mines are old Indian
workings and are believed to be very
rich. The country is being scoured
from one end to the other ln search of
minerals. Official notice was given of
the location of two copper mines in the
Cobre district
Large deposits of carbonate ot zinc
in Arizona, which have never been
touched except by mineralogists, are
now attracting special attention and
are being investigated by Missourians
and I'ennsylvanians, says the £1 Paso
Herald. It is, perhaps.not generally
known that the cine mines of Missouri
were first brought into,prominence by
the "dry bone" or zinc carbonate which
was first discovered there; it is said to
have been used by farmers to make
stone fences, being a white, heavy, lustreless and very ordinary looking rock.
The Zella M., ln Sheridan Camp,
Wash/-, ls down 100 feet and from the
bottom a crosscut was run 16 feet to
cut the vein, which carries four feet of
ore that runs in value from $100 to
$1,225 per ,.on. Drifts have been run
each way from the crosscut for 30 feet.
Two shifts are employed tn sinking a
winze which has attained a depth of
40 feet, showing a fine body of fine-
grade ore. Ten tons of the ore has
been sent out by pack, train. It will
be taken to Marcus and from there will
be sent to the Tacoma smelter. The
ore is of the highest grade and It Is
expected thai when the returns of the
shipment are received a sensation will
be created as the values will certainly
reach Into the hundreds. The Kittle
Clyde shaft has reached a depth of 30
feet. The ore Is exceedingly rich, carrying quantities of black sulphurets of
silver. There is 80 tons of shipping
ore on the dump at this time.

involved in mystery and oilicials of the
road are investigating in order to place
the blame. The than in the signal tower
at Exeter station elaims-to have Ind tl.e
M&n-ls prop r.y di pl.yed.
In a statement today Superintendent
Swigard of tl.e Reding Ha J way said tlie
prime cause of the accident was a block
of freight cars on tbe track which were
taking a siding at Birdsboro and which
compelled tl.e express to stop at Exeter.
It is uot now known yet whether a signal man was sent back to notify tbe special or second section.
Many prominent men were passengers
on the forward train, among them Senator Penrose, Colonel Henry D. l'axon of
Philadelphia, General John W. Sclmll of
Norristown and Colonel George Schall,
the general's brother, who was killed. On
the second train were gome 20 veterans
of Hartranft's Fifty-first regiment'; which
he commanded during the civil war and
a company of the .Seventh Pennsylvania
infantry, National Guard, a few of whom
were injured.
A strange feature of the disaster was
thc fact that not one woman wa* killed
and only one was injured. Norristown
is in mourning, as the greater number of
dead and injured were residents of that
place.
In the afternoon Coroner W. H. Roth-
i-inii 1 empanelled a jury and visiting the
ditlerent morgues they viewed tl.e bodies.
The jury adjourned to assemble at the

New York, May 15.—A special froi*.
Washington says:
A satisfactory conclusion is expected "by
the administration from the conference
which will be held by. tl.e American-
Philippine commission with the Philippine commission Aguinaido proposes to
send to Manila.
Iu his dispatch to the war department.
(Ieneral Otis announced that Aguinaldo
had sent a messenger to him expressing a
wish "to Sent', the commission "to arrange
terms of peace."
The administration official', express the
opinion that, this comnji*-ion will submit
to President Schunnan and his associates
tl.e answer of Aguinaldo to the propositions made by the American commission
to C'vlonel Argueles, Aguinaldo. emissary,
regarding the character of the terms which
would be given the Filipinos and which
Argueles declared was sat'-factory.
It is probably apparent to the Filipinos
that there was nothing to be gained by
conducting negotiations for the purpose
of obtaining a temporary cessation of hostilities. Oeneral Otis will not grant an
armistice and he has shown that he does
not propose to stop fighting, no matter
how many peace emisories Aguinaldo will
send to Manila, unless they agree to unconditional surrender.
Otis  t'ot's Hlnli.   Vht-iid.
In his dispatch Ocne.al Otis shows, despite tbe fact that Aguinaldo slates his
purpose to send a commi-tsion to arrange
peace! he is making preparations to continue military operations.
lt is evident lo the officials that Otis
has found it necessary tu change his
plans, lie han been making prep.iraiious
to attack Bacolor, where IHKW insurgents
are believed to be camped, and it is presumed that the movements reported today still have that print as their object
Oeneral Law-ton is making excellent p.o-
g.esa in his northward niu.cu and the dispatch of Major Kobbc with 1500 men up
the Kio Grande, supported, by gunboats
and canoes, is with the purpose of enab-
l.ng Law ton to cross the Kio Grande without molestation by the enemy, 'lhe pl.in
apparently contemplates thc rapid swinging of Lawton in the west, General Mac-
Arthur to remain at Sen Fernando between the insurgents at Bacolor and those
at Mexico, and Kobbe is to take station
so as to prevent them from crossing the
Kio Grande. MacArthur is asm needed at
his present point to protect commun.ca-
ii..n with Manila.

As the union men declare they will pay

The mine owners of the Sloe-"
have issued their fiat to the miners,
that they vill pay miners bnt 33.00
per shift on and after Jane 1st.
Tbey lay the blame for this move, on
the Legislature, saying that the enforcement of the eight boor 1ft*
compels them to reduce the miners
pay accorJingly. As the mine own' rs
havc stated their side of the case,
publicly through tbe press, let the
miners do likewise. Tbey .will find
the columns of the press as open to
them m to the win*- owners and it to
but fair that the public should bo
advised as to their side of this question.
The Sl_t_ato»t_» is sorry to see
the position taken by the Mine
Owners AatOJ-i-tion. Pa tins; wide *'.!
question as to the justification of the
law, it would hare been policy for the
various managements to bave
approached the Miners' Union in the
matter and not taken the public stand
they have adopted.
It seems to be a foregone conclusion
that if the Mine Owners Association
insist on the miners adopting their
terms, there will be a. walkout and
shut down of all the Slocan mines
within a fortnight, The men will dn
n.and the retention of the .present
scale of wages, viz $3.50 a shift, be it
of eight or ten hours. .
The Government has sown the
seed and will reap a harvest. But not
what they hoped for.
The mine owners were for their part
quite willing to continue to pay 83 60 for
ten hours work, but the enforcement ol
the eiuht hour law having rendered this
Impossible, tbey now offer to pay miners
at the rate ol #00 per eight hour n_ift.
Ibis rate being high** •" proportion to
the hours worked than tbe old rate.
To give eff-t't to this intention a
resolution was passed at the meetitni ol
Uie Silver Lead Mine Owners' Association held in Sandon on May the 8th. as
follows: ....
•That it Is Ihe sense of the  Mine
"Representatives of this  Association
"that tbe standard rate of wages paid
"to miners be In future 83 00 per day
"of eiuht hours."
This resolution was signed by the
representatives of the mines whose
names are hereto appended.
These mines wIbu to state that the
eight hour is 10 lie enforced not later
than June the 12th., they are ready to
hire miners on and after June 1st. at the
above rale; And Ihey further wish it to
be understood Uiat tbis ebanga In tbe
working boars and the consequent eon*
traction of the wage-earning capacity^ol
the miner, was forced upon them bf tne
act of the B. C. Legislator* and waa
entirely unsought for by them.

The Pacific Cable scheme, which is
now one of the chief topics of dis •
cuision by tbe Canadian press, is no
doubt a scheme that would be of immense benefit to Canada and th** wligk-
Britith Empire, and British Coluni
bians will be only too glad to con
tribute their share of the expense
towards carrying the project through.
But thu offer to contributo one
million dollars towards the project by
our provincial government has only
made them ridiculous in the (-yet of
the world. The idea of a go.vernu.eiit
which was elected on thu platform of
economy and which confesses its
ir.abil ty to meet the necessary
expenses of keeping up the roads and
trails, that are of vital importance to
tbe people and a source of direct
income to the go-.err.nnnf, voting iln
sum of one million dollars towards
building a table that will only benefit
the province indirectly and never be
a source of revenue to any extent, is
•joo absurd to be discussed, if it were
not for the fact that the present
government has already passed legislation that is bat little less absurd,
Any member from the mining sections
of tbe province, where roads are so
badly needed, who votes to sustain the
government in the voting away of
this vast sum, which is so badly needed
at home, should be requested by the
people whom they misrepresent, to
rnsign their seats in the Houto.
NOTICETO MINERS.
We are requested by the Secretary ol
tbe Silver Lead Minea AsssociaUon lo
publish the following notice, Copies of
this notice are posted up at tl... various
mines of the district.
Owing to the action of thc British
Colombia Legislature in enforcing the
eight hour law in the Slocan, the Silver-
Lead MineO*ners of the district consider tbat they owe it to iheir Employees,
who are affeoted by the chai.„e reruitjrea
necessary bv the operation of the Act, to
place Iheir intentions with regard'to it
on record-. .* •   ;.   •   _..
In the first piece, the mine owbers of
this district were not consulted- in sny
wny as. to .this .radical ghaow.iu ihe
mining law, and .on being informed of
Uie act," made "every _n.rt in their power
to have tbe law held -in abeyance until
it could be carefully considered by those
interested.
It was pointed ont that the standard
rate ol waxes Ior miners, (3,60 for a fen*
bour shift, was as bigb as paid anywhere io tbe United Statea or Canada,
and that ibis rato wna satistactory to
both mine ownera aud employees.
It wss iurther pointed out that bv
reducing tbe hours oi work from ten to
n*.'it bums the wsge eaminii capacity
of the miner wonld be more than proportionately reduced as far as the mine
owners are concerned.
To tkive greater force and unanimity to
the expressed opinion ol the mine owners,
a meeting ol the Silver Lead Mine
Owners' Associstion of B. C. waa convened in order to get an expression of
opinion about which tbere wonld be no
uncertainty.
Tbe porpoeeof tbis Association ia to
looter aad protect the mining interests ol
the Provinoe, and it is not i_ any sense a
combination of employers against employees, as tho relation between the
wsge earners and tbe employers have
always bean friendly,  and B is hoped

business men ot Silverton, who have
been accustomed to look upon Billy as
