Neil Campbell is working the First
Chance claim on the Hamilton .hill. A
shaft has been sunk ten feet on the property and some good grade copper ore has
been discovered. There are several promising locations in this district. Frank
Jackson having a good claim called the
Hamilton.
Recent developments in the Lost Horse
tunnel has shown up a good body of
medium grade ore. The tunnel was only
run four feet further when the ore was
struck. President Stevenson is shipping
a large sample to Sec'y Campbell, at
Vancouver. The new strike should be a
strong incentive to the company to continue active development.
W. S. Wilson has made a good stnke
on the Lion's Head claim situated on the
east bank of Sterling creek. After cutting through the iron capping which
covers the ledge a strong ledge of white
quartz was discovered. The ledge was
only a foot wide when discovered but on
sinkinS to depty of 26 feet widened out
to nearly six feet between well defined
seynite walls. "Billie"* intends to continue sinking to a dedth of 50 feet this

.NOTE AND COMHENT.
The latest fad in Princeton is
llsmmting ducks by moonlight.
Ssmnie of the politically inclined
Priseetonites are wondering if
Princeton is really on the maps.
After a man is defeated for office,
be hunts up a reporter and says he
is thankful that he is out of politics.
There isn't anything quite so
big in one business man's eye as
the profit to be made be some other
man engaged  in  a different line of
When you are particularly tired
out, and lie down to rest, you usually find the reading matter you have
picked up tells of the pleasures in
work.
So after all, the victory of the
miners in the great Pennsylvania
coal strike is in reality a victory for
tbe operators of the mines. The
miners have been allowed a very
small increase (comparatively) in
wages, while the price of coal will
be fifty cents a ton more to the
consumer, and the owners will,
therefore, be able to double their
dividends at the public's expense.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been
heartily endorsed by the electors of
Canada and the Liberal party is sustained by an increased majority.
Tbe notable feature of the election
was the strong showing the Liberals
made in Quebec. In fact if the
65 seats in Quebec were eliminated
them if they can grasp the situa- from tbe contest the result would
tion in its fullest   extent.     Only a | have been almost a tie.
B. C. MINES AND MINING.
Manager Whyte of the C. P. R.
and W. R. Baker, executive agent,
have returned from the coast where
they accompanied President Shaug h
nessey on his trip of inspection.
Interviewed by a Free Press reporter yesterday, Manager Whyte discussed the mining industry of British Columbia. Since his trip last
year he noticed many changes and
reported considerable progress in
the towns of Grand Forks, Greenwood, Nelson, Trail, Rossland, and
also new towns that are springing
up. At Grand Forks a new smelter has just commenced operations
and 600 tons of ore besides coke are
being turned out to start work and
when this has begun twenty <
per day will be shipped from tbe
place. The smelter at Greenwood,
taking the ore from the Mother
Lode, run by an American company, is kept very busy. A smelter at Boundary Falls, west of
Greenwood, is doing some interesting work.
The sulphur coming from the
ores has been utilized as it comes
from the flues and has been found
very useful for fuel. This is a new
development in smelting ores that
will be of no small importance in
cutting down fuel expenses. Such
smelters have been used with great
success in Colorado.—Winnipeg

There are two kinds of succesfnl men—
those who can do things right without
being directed by others and those who
con do things right when they are told
how.

He strolled into the corridor of
the Waldorf-Astoria. At bis heels
trotted or rather slunk a fairly good
looking fox-terrier. It was plain
that the dog knew he had no business there. A uniformed attendant touched the man on the arm.
"Beg pardon, sir," he said, "you
must not bring that dog in here."
"Dog, dog," exclaimed the man:
| 'dem the dog. I told him to stay
out," and he made as if to kick the
dog, which darted out of the place.
"That's my hardware dog, said
the man.
"Hardware dog?" said a bystander. "Queer name, why do you
call him that?"
"Why? why, every time I kick

any easier to churn lard than butter. You have doubtless heard of
the Nelson girl who expressed so
much sympathy for the farmer because of this cold job of harvesting
his winter wheat. She has to take
a back seat, however, for the Rossland damsel who expressed a desire
to see a field of tobacco just as it
was plugging out. These all rer
mind us of the Vancouver Miss who
certainly is entitled to the whole
bakery. While visiting in New
Denver recently she was asked if
she ever saw anybody milk a cow,
arid replied: "Oh, yes, indeed, I
have. It just tickles me*to death
to see uncle jerk two of the cow's
faucets at the same time."

It was down at the Merchants
Exchange that George Macdonald
was talking in that quiet, well
modulated voice of his, says the
Province. He was talking—but he
wasn't saying anything, and behind the bar Alex Smith was playing with a pair of champagne wire
nippers. ^Still George didn't say
anything. Mr. Smith produced a
plain, ordinary copper cent and essayed to cut it with the champagne
nippers.
"I wish I could cut that coin,"
be said, apparently to himself, "its
an easy way of making money."
"How's that?" asked the coal
man, immediately becoming inter-
-(aisted,
"I'm trying to cut this cent into
four bits." replied Mr. Smith, and
there was silence deep as death for
a time.

As the Egg Reporter was toasting his shins by the winter's fire,
he soliloquized in the following
manner: A hen sits on her nest
and lays eggs. An editor sits on
his office chair and lies in bis bed—
or in his paper. The ben "feathers her nest;" the editor does not—
he cuts his own throat by doing
business for nothing simply to keep
his competitors from getting it. The
hen cackles after she has laid a good
fresh egg ; the editor cackles about
what be intends to do, but seldom
does it. Sensible ben. Tbe ben
scratches for a living; so does tbe
editor. The hen hatches chicken*
that come to some good ; most editors batch schemes that never
amount to anything. Tbe hen presents her bill when she wants something, and usually gets it; the editor presents his bill and hardly
ever gets anything. Tbe ben has
a comb which she doesn't use; tbe
editor may have a comb, and uses
it sometimes, but not always. The
hen has wings ; the editor has none
and never will have. The hen isn't
a high flyer; the editor—is sometimes. The hen broods and raises
a large family ; the editor broods
over how he is going to raise the
large family he already has, as well
as overwasted energies and lost opportunities. The hen is a rooster
when she sleeps ; that's queer ; the
editor is a queer rooster all the time.
The hen often gets cooped; the
editor gets (s) cooped, too, sometimes. The hen often gets it in the
neck; so does the editor. Sometimes the hen crows; the editor almost all the time, but no one ever
knows why. There may be other
similarities between the hen and
the editor, but they do no come to
mind just now.

TBN MILB CREEK-(Nicola Dlstlct)
Someone greatly interested in Nicola
mining claims at 10-Mile Creek writes
the Ashcroft Journal that a claim near
the Big Aberdeen has been bonded to an
English company for $8,000. $3,000 was
paid down. The Big Aberdeen is the
property of Mr. Broom head's company
velopment work next spring. They are
now putting up necessary buildings for
. their men. Judging from our correspondent's figures the Aberdeen must be a
cracker-jack. The 85 tons on the dump,
he says, will go $168 in copper, n ounces
in silver and $2.45 in gold. He further
states his faith in what he calls the 1,0-
mile camp, by saying "it beats anything
that has been found in B. C."
WEBK'S ROSSLAND  OUTPUT.
The shipments for the last week at
Rossland show an improvement in the
output for the two or 'three weeks immediately preceding, being 6863 tons.
The Le Roi shipped 4703 tons, which is
considerably more than usual of late. In
addition to this, the Le Roi No. 2 sent 50
tons, which was shipped so -that some
bins could be cleaned out. A shipment
of 70 tons was made from the War Eagle,
which is the first sent away in some
months. The management has already
'signified its intention of shipping small
quantities from time to time, and there-
it is patent that shipments on a large
scale will not be commenced for some
little time yet. The Iron Mask is shipping according to arrangements, although
the facilities are not as yet such that the
promised carload of ore per day can be
sent away. The shipments for the week
and year are as follows:

DISHONEST C.P.R. IMPLOYEES.
The whole Kootenay and Boundary
mining districts are stirred to their depths
says a late despatch, over a railway inves-
tigatin now being held at' Nelson. It is
claimedihy the secrey service agents of
the C. P. R. that aAegularly organized
>ring has existed itr the mining country
for some time past whereby the railway
company was defrauded out of many
thousands of dollars by means of fraudulent tickets originally purchased—undated—at the company's offices, to be
taken up by the conductors in the ''deal '
and returned to the special agents of the
trainmen'a Syndicate, and by them sold
over and over again. Hotel runners
were in the majority of cases, the go-betweens; and two conductors, among the
best known in the interior country and
employees of the road for years—are said
to have organized the scheme. Two station agents are also implicated. Every
man connected with the big railway company on the division is anxiously watching the outcome of the investigation.
One of the conductors has already been
discharged. Chief of detectives Burns,
from Montreal, and H. A. Janson, of the
secret service department for the lines
west of Fort William, had the conduct of
the enquiry which has lead to the ex-
