THE NELSOIT MINER'S NIGHT-MARJi.
The Miner is sore over being
made the butt end of a joke, so it
-easily conjures up a nightmare
'wherein moles are magnified into
mountains. There was no insult
to the Court nor sneering reference
to the Queen in : the Prospector's
remarks which formed the text for
the Miner's ranting homily.
When we ate in need of instruction in etiquette we can find a better teacher than the tenderfoot
from Australia. The editor of the
Miner regrets that the "offending
number" of the Prqspector reached
him too late for his criticism to
appear on the editorial page. Not
too late yet, young man. Run it
in on your editorial page this week,
Send it to Melbourne and have it
stereotyped. Better have it transmuted into French, the same as
your telegrams, to prevent leakage.
Judge Spinks does not favor undue haste in the machinery of the
smaller courts. Two cases which
appeared to him to be of that character were reversed in the county
court,
A recent number of the Nelson
Miner referred to Her Majesty the
ljueen as "Her Goodness Gracious-
ness." Such unseemly levity and
disrespect by the Miner is not to be
tolerated.
Recent legislation has added
prominence in tlie mineral districts
of the province to the office of assessor. Assessor Dennis in a trip
through West Kootenay has placed
over three thousand mineral claims
un his list. A majority of those
are of little yalue, but some are of
great value, running up into the
millions. The revenue derived by
tlie government from this source
might to make it unnecessary for
government officials to visit the
liothcbild pawn shop.
With Electro-Magnets.
Wilbur, Apr. 20.-The whole
community is anxiously awaiting
the result of an experiment which
is to be made next week���the practical test of a new process for saving the fine gold which abounds in
the sands of the Columbia. Should
it prove a success, as its inventor
is confident, there is hardly a limit
to the amount of gold that can be
shipped from Eastern Washington
in the next decade; for, as the inventor himself says, "it means billions or nothing."
J. C. Moore, a man of long experience in mining, is the discoverer of the new process. He is the
man who last year introduced the
process of washing gold which no
less than nine other companies are
now using at places along the Columbia with excellent success. This
process is simply forcing the water
to an elevation so that long sluice
boxes can be better used and better
pressure obtained, in place of short
sluices or rockers. Profitable as
this was, it did not satisfy Mr.
Moore, who set to work to devise a
better plan.
The puzzle was to separate the
fine gold from the magnetic iron,
or "black sand" as it is commonly
called. To get rid of the rest of
the sand and gravel is no trick at
all. At last Moore hit upon the
scheme now to be tried.
Roughly described, this is the
plan: A broad, thin, endless belt
of rubber passes over two pulleys
placed on a level with each other.
On one end of this belt,, just above
the turn of the pulley, the sand
fcnd gravel falls. Just underneath
the rubber band at this point is a
powerful electro-magnet which;
draws the black sand close th the:
rubber band and holds it there un--
til it is carried past the tivrh and
is speeding along the level stretch
to the other,end of the band; where
a series of brushes sweep it out of
the way,      '''��� v
The gold dust and ordinary
gravel, howeycV, do not stick to the
rubber band;'but fall down into
another sluice' box and are swept
over a series of amalgam pbites
that quickly take up all the glit-
tering particles.
1 Mr. Moore was in Seattle last
winter and made many experiments with sand from the Columbia, the Snake, the Salmon and
the ocean beach. These results
were so successful that he hastened
back to Wilbur and this spring begin the erection of a complete
plant on the ' river bank twelve
miles due north of town. He has
put in an electric lighting plant
and intends to run day and night.
The San Poel Mining company,
whjch was incorporated to test
this project, has options on about
240 acres of the best placer ground
along the river���enough' to make
millions if the plan is a success.
The plant will be started next
Monday. If the first results are
satisfactery, sixteen men' will be
kept busy by this one plant, and
others will be erected in quick
time. Should it succeed, there will
be many fortunes made in Washington gravel in the next few
years.	
Gold and  Silver,
A ton of gold or silver contains
29,166.66 ounces.
A ton of gold is worth $602,875.
A ton of silver at the standard
rate of $1.2929 would be worth
$37,709.5, but at this time, as the
price of silver varies, it would be
worth, according to bullion quotations, from $20,000 to $30,000 per
ton.
The United States money standard for gold and silver is 900
parts pure metal and 100 parts of
alloy in 1000 parts of coin.
Standard gold is worth $18.60405
per ounce, United states gold coin,
21.6 carats fine.
Standard silver is worth $1.1636
per ounce. .
The standard gold dollar is 25.8
grain troy and the standard silver
dollar 412.5 grains.
The value of an ounce of pure
gold is $20.67183; 23.22 grains of
pure gold equals $1.   .
Thg term carat, when applied to
the fineness of gold, means one24th;
pure gold is 24 carat gold.
A cqbic foot of gold weighs 1,203
pounds, and is worth about $300,-
000.
Silver is about onehalf as heavy
as gold. A cubic foot of silver
weighs 625 pounds and is worth
about $10,000.
The British standard of coinage
is 11 parts gold to 1 of alloy, and
of silver 37 parts of silver to 3
parts of alloy.
Quotation of the price of silver
on the British market is made on
that basis, viz: Of 925-1000 fine,
while American transactions are
made in the pure metal. This accounts for the lower rates of the
former.
One pound troy weight equals
0.822857 of a pound avoirdupois;
7,000 tray grains equal 1 pound
avoirdupois; 437.5 troy grains
equal an ounce avoirdupois; 175
troy pounds equal 144 avoirdupois
pounds; 175 troy ounces equal 192
ounces avoirdupois; 1 avoirdupois
pound equals 1.215278 pound troy.

To bloom or not to bloom, that is
tlie question.
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to
suffer
Tlie slings and foldings of outrageous skirts
Or to take up arms and legs against
our troubles,
And by opposing end them?   To
scorch, to race
No more, and by a race to say   we
end
The heartache and  the   thousand
natural shocks
That modesty is heir to.   'Tis   a
consummation
Devoutly to be wished.   To scorch,
to race,
To race���perchance���to fall���aye,
there's the rub,
For in that blooming  fall   what
rents may come
To mar my outer garments! There's
the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and
scorns of style,
The oppressor's wrong,  the  loud
girl's contumely,
The tangle of despised skirts, the
lingerie display,
The indifference of dudes, and then
the spurns   ....
That patient merit of the unworthy
takes,    ' , *   "       >  ���
When she herself might a compromise make
With a  pair  of leggings?   Who
would petticoats wear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary
life,
But that the dread of some untold
mishap,
The unfelled Beam,' the Unsubstantial cloth,    ���
Which tailors use, puizles the will
And makes us rather  wear  those
clothes We hive
Than fly to otnerd that   we  know

Thus modesty makes cowards of

THBEK FORKS.
The Maha |treet in Three Forks
has been cleaned,up, gijeiatly Mr
proving the appearance of the
town.
It was a crusty old bachelor with
a bald head and a bad Infer who
referred to the Ladies Aid, Society
is the Ladies Raid Society.
About 5ft men are working on
the Moore-^y-aillance tramway and
with this force rails will soon be
laid on the first mile of the "road.
BY   WATER   POWER.
During the absence of the millionaires and titled officials of the
Humphrey-Moore concentrator,
John Vallance has turned on the
water power and sel^ the mill to
grinding, Having no ore in the
bins, and transportation from the
mines blocked he is experimenting
with the tailings or waste with
profitable results. By running ten
tons into one an assay of ^30 ozs.
of silver is obtained. Thos. Avi-
son is the efficient superintendent
during this extra run.
BIO BKND NEWS.
From the Mall.
Andy Parks has sunk 40 feet on
Ms company's claim on Smith
creek.
Beaton, and Vandall are pushing
ahead on the Gold Hill, and good
returns ar^. reported.
The owners of the Little Falls
mine have, stopped operations for
Jhe present and will work on the
bridge until that, is finished.
Thomas Hennessey is contracting for, a more powerful pump for
his Nugget claim on French creek,
as the water came in so fast as to
compel the work to stop.
The timber for the Gold Stream
bridge is all cut and . hewed, the
pileo all out, and the piledriver is
made and is setting the piles in
place. The water h,as risen Borne
but not enough to interfere with
.construction. Six men are employed, and the bridge will be completed by the 15th of May.
The Consolation mine is still
producing a handsome amount of
gold weekly. The clean-up has increased from about $300 per week
to $450 last week, and the amount
.divided in four weeks after the
wages of eight men and all ex
penses were paid was $1400. A $50
nugget was found a few days ago.
The total amount taken out in the
four weeks was $2500. Mr. La-
forme brings down $1500 in gold
.dust.
Wm. Haley, an old timer in Big
Bend, and long a settler in Revelstoke, has formed a company or
Sartnership with J. H. White and
ames Burns to prospect Camp
.creek, a tributary of Gold stream.
In 1868 Mr. Haley spent some
time on this creek but was cut off
by the cold weather from carrying
.out his plans. After the lapse of
27 years Wm. Haley <fc Co., or the
Camp Creek Prospecting Co., will
take hold of the creek again with
the intention of sinking to bedrock and thoroughly testing the
ground. Messrs. White and Burns
have already gone up in a boat
with Sam Deschamps, taking a
supply of provisions. They started
last Monday and Mr. Haley will
follow them on the first boat.
About Coolg��rdle.
Coolgardie is not by any means
a small mining camp, there being
at least 10,000 people on the field.
It is rather a pleasant scene as the
stage dashes up Bayley street between the rows of white tents to
the hotel, where, as usual, there is
���quite a crowd to see the newcomers
And to get the mail. Hotel living,
���.such as it is, costs $3 a day. The
first thing the stranger feels is the
lack of fresh water. Then one
misses vegetables and fruit, there
being no such things to be had for
Any money, except in cans. Beef
And mutton are cheap-enough, but
no game of any kind is to be had.
There are fewer saloons than in
most ruining camps, since nobody
can get a liquor license unless his
house has at least fifteen sleeping
apartments and a public {lining
room. A few of ihe1 best saloons
have barmaids, who are the only
Women to be seen in' Coolgardie.
It is a hard place for men to live,
much less women, and those who
are there have to rough it as do the
men. "''
The climate is good in spite of
the heat, which sometimes runs as
high as 110 degrees in the shade",
yet it is a dry beat and one does
not feel it so much a_B 90 degrees in
a damper atmosphere-
Guns are Utterly useless in the
new fields, because there iB no
game. One seldom hears of a robbery, because there is no possible
way of getting but of the country
without it being known.   Not one
of Coolgardie's thousands wears a
revolver ojienly.
' Anyone bay take up 25 acres of
land, but must conform to the la-
bor conditions, which are as fob
lows:  '   "
From the time of applying for
a twenty-one years' lease the lessee
muBfemolcty one man to every six
acres,'and one man to every three
acres'-stifter securing the lease, and
the labor must be continuous.
This law 'is to 'prevent syndicates
from taking up too much land. A
miner!* license costs $5 a year and
a lease costs 5 a year per acre.
1 Miners earn from $1.7.50 to $21
a week, arid find plenty of employment, but Coolgardie is ho place to
look for work.
'No'better proof of the prosperity
of Coolgardie can be found than
during the holidays, when "ex-
emjllion" is allowed for six weeks,
thai 'is no labor need be done on
miriing land during that time, and
maify miners utilize this respite
visiting their' friend? in Victoria
