AMONG   THE  BOYS
A Busy and Profitable
Out in the Hills
Week
A Host of New and Important Discoveries Made-Development Work
Still Continues.
While the past week has been4ftnfle
quiet for Princeton it has been a record
maker for the miners andprospectors.
Every miner who has come to town lias
brought reports of development work
progressing favorably and the ledges and
ore bodies looking better and better the
farther they go in. Among the prospectors the week has been a busy one,
there having been 34 new claims staked.
Twenty of these were staked in the Aspen
sBigS
and 1
ing interests.
THE BATE BOYS.
Are doing some great, work in the' Aspen Grove district on the Cincinnati and
surrounding claims, and a recent discovery on one of the properties they are interested in is bound to prove a bonanza.
We desired very much to have been able
to give a complete description of this
property but were unable to secure par
ticulars until a later „date. The ore ii
this prpperty is said to run as high a:
60 per cent,  in copper.
ROGERS & SILVERTHORNE.
Were in town the first of the week anc
had samples from the Lucky Silver horni
which were fairly alive with copper.. Th(
lead on this property is over 14 feet wid<
nine or ten feet in.
THE SUNSET.
« r"Supt. Ike Lougheed, who was in town
yesterday, reported  work  being  pushed
right along on  the  drift and  that they
were now in about 40 feet.     French &
Day, have finished  putting in  the
fan in place, and now the  mine has the
best of air.     For several days before this
they were  compelled  to quit  work
account of bad air,  but now they have
plenty and to spare.    When questioned
as to the quality of the ore Mr. Lougheed
said:   "The ore  is alright and  we have
absolutely nothing to complain of."
THE ROYALTY GROUP.
Manager Spencer when in town the
-fi^jKfeif the week said that everything was
moving along smoothly and his men were
keeping steadily at work. He seemed to
be highly elated over the discovery of the
lost mine.
An
THE MONROE BROTHERS.
portant transfer  of interests ii
Similkameen mining property was made"
last week, the parties, interested being
Monroe Brothers; of Grand Forks and
R. R. Shuttleworth. The claim is the
Wonderful, situated on Deadhorse mountain on the north side of the Tulameen
river, one mile'north of the Dead Horse
claim, and was located by Monroe and
Shuttleworth., Upon looking .over and
examining' >fm* property ^tSe-s Monrot
brothers decided to buy Mr. Shuttle-
worth's one-half interest in the claim and
proceed to develop it at the earliest possible date. The price paid is not known
but is understood to be a good round
sum, as the property is a valuable one
and has an extraordinary fine showing
'on it:' The Monroe Bros, left theTbi
part of the week for Grand Forks, b
will retumin a tew weeitsand procjbect
put on a force of men. The boys a
well known in the Boundaries and have
ample funds-back of them to. carry o

promising property which they have

Bonter, and situated also on the Dead
Horse mountain.

EIGHT HOURS IN MONTANA..
A Great Day in the History of the
Butte Miner's Union.
Miner's Union day, 1900, will be the
most memorable in the history of the
Butte camp. During the exercises in the
opera house preceding the procession letters were read from senator W. A. Clark
and F. Aug. Heinze, the latter the head
of the Montana Ore Purchasing Company, granting the miners in their request for an eight-hour working day. In
his letter Senator Clark says:
"I realize the hazardous character
labor in the mines increases with the
depth of the working by reason of the
difficulty of ventilation and other reasons.
I am satisfid that the demand for shortening the time for a day's work to eight
hours is a reasonable one, and I have
given instructions to the superintendent:
of all my mines to adopt the eight-houi
edly

tht
the underground miner. It envolves
more risks than other labor, and the accidents to which a miner is subjected to
are most disastrous. The profits of those
engaged in mining have greatly increased in the last few years through the rise
in the price of copper, but the underground miner has had no share in this
prosperity. On and after today—the anniversary of the Butte Miners' Union
—the miners in the employ of all mines
in which I have a controlling voice shall
receive the present scale of wages for a
day's labor of eight hours."
Both announcements were received
with cheers. Everybody is celebrating
the event.
Buying Gold Bricks.   \)C
Probably there is not a paper in the
United States that has not, at one time or
another, exposed the gold brick swind e.
Most of them have exposed it time and
time over. Still men of means and seeming experience and judgment go on buying blocks of brass and squares of copper,
under the fleeting delusion that they are
acquiring such stuff as $20 gold pieces
are made of.
The latest victim is a banker at Hastings, Nebraska. Here was a man whose
vocation ought to have drilled indelibly
upon his brain the unerring fact that
men do not sell $ 20 gold pieces for less
than {20, and who should have known
that we have free coinage of gold in this
country, and the owner of a gold brick
has only to take it or express it to any
United States assay office to receive in
return the full value of the consignment.
But he was led to believe that he wife
buying the brick at a great bargain.
That is invariably the motive that lures
on these buyers of copper bars. Usually
the seller hints that it is stolen property,
and he dares not send it to the United
States assay office, and the buyer is lured
on by a dishonest desire to become the
profit-taking receiver of stolen properly.
In this case, the banker accompanied
the bunco man to Leavenworth, where
the brick was produced by an Indian,
was properly drilled and the fillings assayed. They ran $20 per ounce. They always do. Thereupon he passed over his
f 13,600 and became the happy possessor
of a bar of copper worth about $1.30.
Honest men who read the newspapers
with understanding and care never buy
gold bricks at a bargain. Its a hundred-
to-one shot that the Hastings banker was
one of the men who skim over the daily
paper and throw it down with the bored
statement that "there is nothing in it.'
—Spokesman-Review.
Farm Hands Scarce.
Pendleton East Oregonian: Many
farmers were in town today looking for
farm hands, and many others have been
here the past few days. All state that
they are unable to find men for the coming harvest. This is a condition calling
"for serious consideration. The harvest is
at hand, and within a few days most of
the grain of this country will be ready
for cutting. According to the present
indication, there will not be men to do
are going to be
ssed.
work is to be had here for several 11101;
It appears that the prospect is not good
for the men being secured, a prominent
railroad man stating today that all along
the line of the road it was difficult to
find men to do the work of the company.
The great campaign is ended. The
average man will now turn his attention
to patching up the differences and healing the sores induced by the friction of
disagreement with his neighbors. The
merchant and the mechanic will each apply his energies to his business. The
country newspaper will descend from ts
agonizing flights of sounding the note of
warning to the unsuspecting voter, hanging upon the verge of utter destruction,
and devote its columns to neigboring
news and fostering the interests of town
and country, and before the next campaign is open the editor will have shown
his devotion to his country and his people so thoroughly that nine-tenths of his
neighbors will call him brother.
If this could but continue—If campaigns could no more return, his life
would be spent in elysian fields. But
alas, it can never be. Another storm
will break. His best friends will discard
him because he cannot endorse their political creed. Past associations will
count for naught. He will be cursed for
a fool and called a boodler. Men who
have stood at his back to defend his utterances will again be there, but -to*^ive
him a kick. Thus the world of politics
doth go round, making the life of an
editor both varied and interesting—

These are the men that have made
a Rossland in the Kootenays, and
e are the men who will make
another Rossland in the Similkameen. Slowly, but surely, the footholds are becoming bigger and bigger and larger in number, so that
the most timid investors can have
i to be afraid of falling.
But while these hardy workmen
are toiling away in the mountains
there is a task and a duty for those
engaged in other walks of life.
There is a task for the farmer, the
business man and the tradesman, in
endeavoring to the best of their
ability to do everything in their
power to aid in waking up the outside world and in securing help so
that the footholds will-grow and
the "man with a hoe" will have
time to take a well earned rest.
