That tho Arlington reduction works
for the treatment of their low grade
ores sirs •*, certainty, may bo judged
from the words uttered in Spokane
this week by J. Frank Collom, the
managing director. The new treatment, as designed by Prof. Parks, is
a modification of tha Pelatin-Clerici
system, with the assistance of electricity, and is so successful as to warrant
the movers in tho idea in having the
process patented.   Mr. Collom said:
"For some time we have had a small
plant capable of handling alxiut 2-J
tons a day on a pinch, in tho barn at
the Fairwoather house, in Browne's
addition. Things have reached such
a stage that wo expect to secure larger
and more permanent quarters. Our
tests have been made with a complete
unit, and the larger plant which we
will orect at tho mine, with a capacity
of 50 tons a day, will be merely an aggregation of these units. We feel,
therefore, that with tho success attending our experiments here there is
no doubt of the success of thc plant.
"I do not care to say what the results have beeu, except to say that we
have saved U5 per cent of the silver
values in Arlington ore—an unheard
of thing in milling ores. Wo have
saved 97 per cent iu the gold values.
I expect we shall effect a saving of
from Sii to $7 per t'jn under tho present cost of treating our ores. Wc
shall also handle custom ores that inav
offer. Wo expect to get our mill
buildings under cover this season, and
shall have the machinery in shape to
commence operations next spring."
Alive to r.sl.l.i' li.terests.
Last Thursday business circles rostra
much agitaUd over numerous local
men having to go to Nelson for supplies to t*ke luto their claims on upper Lemon ci*e«k. owing to several
bridges having lieeu washed out along
the trail, so preventing theni going in
from here. Orders given here had to
bo cancelled. The result was that a
telegram was sent to R. F. Green, M.
P.P., at Victoria, asking that the government replace the bridges at once,
in the intoi-est of Sloean. The telegram
was signed on be-half of Iho board of
trade, the city council and the Conservative Association. That evening
a reply was received stating that Uoad
Inspector Me-orc had lx*en instructed
to make the repairs at once, much to
the satisfaction of the townspeople.
This prompt nction shows the new
government to be fully alive to the
interests of the public.

Wm. Thomlinson, who has been in
Spokane for several months past assisting Prof. Parks in his experiment*
on tho ore from the Arlington mine,
returned on Friday,aud is now spending a vacation at New Denver. He
announced that the experiments on the
ore were practically concluded and he
is hopeful of the complete success of
the treatment. When officially announced as a success, the now system
of treatment will enable profits to be
won from very low grade ores, of
which the Arlington and Speculator,
and tho camp in general, hold unlimited quantities. .So soon as Prof.
Parks demonstrates the feasibility of
his treatment to the public, he would
be able to command Immenao capital
to invest iu the dry ores of the Slocan,
and tha future of this camp was undoubted and sure.
Mr. Thomlinson hail no hesitation
in expressing his belief that the Arlington mill would be built, but when
construction would commence he was
not in a position to state. At present
he is not connected with the Arlington
but he may return here in n month or
so to again assume charge of affairs at

Thos. Jones, the Kansas zinc man,
is credited with the intention of erecting a zinc smelter and refinery at
Vancouver, drawing his principal supply of raw material from the Slocan.
Ho is also credited with having secured three zinc properties near Vancouver, the output of which will go to his
works. The C.P.R. are supporting the
scheme and will grant a rate on the

Neale stretched out his hand with n
quick motion mui laid it upon Blair's
Shoulder, to that Individual'*] great surprise, for he thought himself far out
of roach. They stared at each other
with equal Intensity.
"Can you be square?" said Blalr as If
he were consul ting an oracle and not
the man at whom he was looking. "Is
there nny way to make you ? I believe
there Is. And you've got the money
"I've always got plenty of money for
a good thing." said Neale. "Now, Speak
up.   Did Alden tell Maclane?"
Blalr shook off the hand upon hla
shoulder by the exercise of gnat agility, and then he strode across thc room
lo n desk, from which he took a small
blankbook and u stylograph!? pon. He
Opened tho book upon the table nnd
wrote h!s name on the first page, wilh
a word or two nfter lt; then he looked
nt Neale, holding the pen toward him.
Tlie captain nodded, and bo also wrote
in tho book, t'pon the page tlierc then
appeared tbls:
Annan G.mnaiN Pi.aib, I _     . „   , __
J.sKra Hsau, f El'u" r"r,ner«*
"My friend," s.ild the captain, "you
ask mo If I can be square. Well,
there ain't nobody that can be squaror
than what 1 can. nnd you'll find that
out If you stick to me and don't try to
get funny nor play no tricks."
If Blnir's acquaintance with Nenle
had been more Ultimate, he would
have recognized sincerity ln this redundancy of negatives. The reporters
who have followed Neale's career assert that he once put seven Into one
short sentence while engaged ln denouncing a certain well known reformer. As a rule, however, his language was not grossly inaccurate. In
this Instance It was the ring of tlie
words that appealed to Blalr. Ho took
up the book and wrote upon the page
that bore tbe names, his petition being
sucb that tbo captain could uot seo
what was set down.
"Now, my esteemed business associate," said Bluir, laying down -the
book, "tbls Ib the English of thc matter—Alden hns told Maclane where
he was that afternoon und Maclane
bas told mc. I didn't go up there to
get tbe secret; I went for a little cold
money. Circumstances had made it
agreeable to me to put Miss Maclane
out of this ease, and as I was going
to do lt anyhow it occurred to nie
that I might ns well be paid for It"
"It's a pleasure to be In business
with a man like you," said Neale, with
a grin.   "How much wns the touch?"
"Only $2,000," replied Blalr. "It is a
loan. I told him a pitiful story of misfortune and mentioned that 1 was
being bounded by the police. Well,
he's bad a little of that himself, ne
sympathized witb me, and when I said
I wanted to move, take a better otlice
and all that be very kin.ily consented
to help me out. As to his daughter, 1

"Equal partners, as we nre," snld
"Precisely," was the reply. "Such
being the case, I could not become a
third partner. In brief, I wouldn't
give out that lnts'i'vlew which you saw
In the papers this morning until I was
sure Alden was Innocent."
"Clever rascal!" said Neale.
"it was a sudsieu Inspiration with
me, I'll admit," responded lilulr, "but
It worked. Of course I was a long
while getting at the facts, for nt first
he wanted mo to tnke his word, which
1 gently but firmly declined to do.
Then, In the strictest confidence, he
told me what I'm going to tell you
"This Is a big thing," bo continued,
bis face suddenly growing pale "I'm
afraid you can't raise tbe money to
swing It, for It cnn't be done without
money. That's why I'm laying myself
open to you. It hnd to lie somebody,
and tbe devil sent you In."
"I'm obliged to blm," .said Nenle.
"Go on."
"Mr. Alden spent the critical  time I
that afternoon," said Blnlr, "In Ibe of   I
flee of a genllemnn named Marcellim
II nl'ss ui.   Ever bear of blm?"
"One of tho smartest trust lawyers |

Alsia'ii was il .in-' there: He has organ*
hied a combination of the companies
In his line of business,"
"Alden has?" exclaimed Nenle, ninn?.-
"Yes, sir," responded Blalr.    "That
mnn Alden, the bead of a little, tottering concern  that  is on tlie edge of
bankruptcy, has got all the big fellows  in  line, and   lie glands to  win
mlllirns In the closing of the deal.   It's
pout'lug money into this ileal that bus
I put his own business where It ls.   He
{ must wiu uow or go to total ruin."
"Well,   what's  going to stop  hlm?"
demanded Neale eagerly.    "Where do
I wp couie lu?"
"He's rounded  them all  up except
the  Holbein   Manufacturing company
of Newark," said Blnlr.   "Without that
company in, the thing breaks and Alden goes to smash.    But on the day
j when be sent that note to Miss Miller,
! on the day wheu she was stabbed, Al-
j den got a verbal agreement witb tbe
. president   of  tbe   Holbein   company
! which practically clinched the thing.   It
j clinched It except for Just one chance
i — there's an option out on the Holbein
j business. Some time ago a combination

Is in ih" hands of Bowen's son, who
i bns been trvlng   »o   push the thing
along, but bas now dropped it.    We
j must buy that option."
"Why doesn't Alden buy It?"
"Ho Is making n gamblo. If the option lapses, he enn get the concern for
half a million The Holbein people
know nothing of the trust scheme.
They think Alden merely represents
capital Bcekini' nn Investment. They
are all old men In the company and
willing to -.ell out. But If new capital
nnd new men go' bold of the concern
It can be forced into Aider's trust on a
valuation of a clean million, and there's

Neale twisted a newspaper Into rags
with his gigantic hands.
"This thing neixlfl Investigating," he
said, "and there Isn't much time."
"lnvestigatlm-V" echoed Blalr. "If
old Duncan .Maclane says it's all right,
do you suppose there's anv doubt about
"Why doesn't he buy lu?" queried
Nenle nnd then answered his own question     "I   see.     He can't,     He's prot   it

do for hlm to show up wltb the proper
ty. But you're tn'kine big money, nnd

"Nonsense! You know where the

"Perhaps 1 da" responded Neale,
with a grin; "but, at any rate, please
remember that I have acted ln your interests throughout."
Blair took him by tbe topmost button
of his sack coat.
"In the interests of Joseph Neale,"
be said. "My Interests and those of
justice haven't bothered you much.
Why, this case reminds 1110 of the old
college football games 20 years "go.
Somebody kicked tho ball once, nnd
then the hoys began to tight, and nobody paid nny attention to the bull after that. Usually some mucker from

pnisl Neale, "Just nominally a part of

And lie grinned serenely ns he walked backward toward the door.
SOARING the time wben
Dr. Blalr and Captain
Neale were concluding
their small matter of
business Detective Elmendorf was waiting
In Alden's office, having reason to believe
thnt he would make a flying visit thcro
during the forenoon. This expectation
wns realized, for Alden entered hurriedly about 11 o'clock.
He greeted Elmendorf In very friendly fashion, the detective meanwhile ns-
sumlng a somewhat apologetic air.
"I hate to bother you," he said, "nbout
my troubles wben you certainly bavo

And as he spoke the last words his

Robinson, who sat In bis usual place—
"do you know where that contract Is?"
Robinson replied In the negative, nnd
Alden polled out the contents of some

"Hero's tho contract," ho said, "and-

And he tossed nn envcIoDP across to
Robinson's desk. Robinson glanced nt
It hastily and put It Into bis pocket.

handed to him, end, having received
permission to keep It for a few days,

Mr. Wlllett to come In here?"
Wlllett was thc firm's accountant.
Robinson walked toward the door, and
as he did so Elmendorf half rose from
bis chair and then sat down again.
The accountant presently appeared.
He received some memoranda from Alden and went out again. There was
an interval of silence, while Elmendorf
devoted himself to the enjoyment of a
largo cigar afid Alden Jotted down figures on a allp of paper.
"Wonder what's become of Robin-
con," said Alden at Inst.
The detective offered no opinion
' upon tbla point, and Alden stepped to
the door and glanced Into tbe large
room. Elmendorf heard some one say
lo response to a question that Robinson had gone out Alden seemed annoyed as he returned to his desk,
whero he hastily wrote a note to Robinson.
"Now," be said, "I'm going op
"fit.   Winifred's?"   queried   Blmendorf.
1    "I sball call there about 1 o'clock."
"If you'll go over to the Astor House
with me," said Elmendorf, "and wait
about three minutes while I transact
1 a little business, I'll go up wltb you,
and we can talk on the way.  Tbere
are a few questions that I'd like to
ask after I've straightened tbem out
In my own mind a bit."
I    Alden saw no objoctton to this ar-
j rangement, aud so tbey walked over
to the old hotel together.   Elmendorf
glanced nt bis watch as they entered
and then npproached tbe attendant lu

"There will be a call for Mr. Blmendorf from  Philadelphia   in about   a
; minute," he said.   "I am the man."
The call came wlthi-a the Interval
stated, and Elmeudorf entered the
booth, where he gave the customary
greeting, which waa returned ln a familiar voice.
"I've got track of your man over
bere," sal* the voice. "B. appears to
be his real name; didn't suppose It
wag. He was In trouble over bere a
little more tban a year ago and had to
get out of town; borrowed some
money on bogus security." And the
voice furnished a few details of tbo
{ transaction. "He bas been trying to

several timos. There are rumors that
he got Into similar trouble In Washington, but I'm not down to tbat yet

"All right." responded Elmendorf.
"Hustle, old man. This thing Is getting pretty ripe over here. And, remember, this is personal business; lt
Isn't official. I may want to cover the
whole matter up."
"Tbe man is no good, I guess," said
the voice.
"I don't care anything about the

"Nothing la sight"
"Well, tbere must Im somewhere. Mr.

Elmendorf rejoined Alden. who ln the
meantime had engaged a hansom.
"Your secretary, Robinson, seems to
be a bandy man," said Elmendorf after
some desultory conversation.
"He's very obliging," replied Alden.
"Perfectly honest I supposo?"
"Never knew anything to the contrary," said Alden. "He doesn't handle
any money."
"He handled (WOO the other day,"
suggested Elmendorf.
"But he didn't know It" replied Alden. "I don't mean to Imply anything
against Robinson, but I know very little about him, and I never trust a man
any further than I know him. I never
trust a man with money unless I know
the money side of him. It Is possible
to be a good, straight fellow about everything elso and have a weakness
"I Shook think you ought to be a

"I suffer from the name troublo that

The idea that Mohammedanism Is
"plnyed out" would be a dangerous one
for statesmen to bank upon.   It Isn't.
Mohammed began his career as a
prophet moro than (JOO years Inter than
the beginning of the Christian era. At
present he has 176,000,000 disciples,
more than one-third ns many ns thero
are Christians ln the world.
Nine hundred years ngo there were
in India no MohammedanB. Now there
are 50,000,000, and they arc Increasing
in number constantly. Tbey are hy all
odds tho most energetic subjects ln
British India.
The western wave of Mohammedanism rolled up to the farthest comer of
Spain, up to the wnlls of Vienna, and
then began to recede, but the shrinking process wns accompanied by expansion elsewhere. In Africa Mohammedanism ls Btendily proselyting. Russia In Europe has 3,000,1)00 followers of
the prophet, more than there nre In

Asia, however, the realm of future

proved that Dr. Williams' Tink Pills
will cure rheumatism. Miss Major
says : I suffered from thc trouble for
nearly a yoar. I had the advice of a
doctor and took his medicine, but It
did not help mc. The troublo was located chiefly in my ankles, and the
pain 1 suffered at times was intense.
As a ma'tter of fart at times I was
quito unable to walk across tho
room, and for some six months I wus
confined to the house. I used lini-
I moots ami other medicines proscribed
for rheumatism, but tliey did mo no
good. Then some of my friends urged
me to try Dr Williams' Pink Tills. I
acted on their urivico and before 1
luul usesl throe boxes I began to feel

northern    skies,    pale    in the    grny  j
morning gloom;  and  tlie sun   coinos !
over tho horizon  dim through  mists
of frost    smoko.        In an    hour  tho

of betrayal in northern miuvinler. It
is   by   tne big  .liquid   eye,   glistening
on the   snow    like    a black marble,  I

loosens his coat and runs the faster.
As  the    light     grows,    dim  forms

away    in  a    sea  of billowed,     white
drifts that seem to hsuve and  full to
the motion of    the runner, mounting
and coasting and swimming over tho
unbroken  waste  like a  bird    winging

stretch of drifts billowing nway to a
boundless circle,  of which tbe man is
tlie centre, his form is dwarfed    out
of all   proportion, till   he looks   no

FRIDAY, JUNE 18th, 1903.
Capital's side of industrial disputes
will not be hurt much by the lalxir
commission uow sitting in British
The Grits are doing a groat deal of
talking just now and proudly assert
they will sweep the province at the
coming elections. It's a wise mau
who saves his ammunition till the
fight is on.
It has been decided to dissolve the
legislature nest Tuesday, the 16th
inst. This will make the elections
c jine off at the end of September or
the beginning of October. Get your
houses in order.
If it were possible a thick veil should
be drawn over the prciceedings of the
last session of the legislature, never to
be disturbed. It would hide from the
g.ize of future generations a ghastly
array of intrigue, corruption aud dishonored reputations.
a The royal commission appointed to
inquire into the Gamey charges
against the Ontario government has
reported, completely exonerating the
Liberal leaders from any wrongdoing.
The whitewash was a foregone conclusion from the outset, and no wonder
the accused rested easy. Royal commissions come iu handy.
After all the estimates and supple-
mental ies have been passed, together
with sundry private bills.and the house
dissolved. This milling division will
now get some attention paid to its dire
wants and liixr-sssities of two years'
standiug. In two days liefore closing
the legislature did more business than
. in all the other portion of the sessiou.
F. J. Fulton has been dropped from
the cabinet slate, the ministers as
sworn in being: McBride. premier and
lands and works; Tat low, finance;
Green, mines, education and provincial secretary; McPhillips, attorney-
general ; Wilson,president of the council. As uow constituted, the cabinet
is consider-*! exceptionally strong and
a sure winner.
By an act of overt treachery to their
own party, certain Grit  manipulator**
- in Victoria made it possible for the
reins of power to be thrust into the
hands of the Tories. Thc Grits now
seek to cover up the contemptible
scheming of their own hacks by anathematizing the Tories for seizing the
advantages pli«-ed withiu their reach.
-Tories generally know a good thing
when thev see it.
Victoria is dying hard.struggling to
tho last for a vestige of power to be
granted some memlier of the old fam
ily compact. But it ennnot be, for the
days of coalition monstrosities are
happily traded in British Columbia.
Private gain and corporate graft have
ceased, and the era of intelligent and
responsible government arrived. With
party line politics individuality is lost
'sight of, inasmuch as the party must
be responsible to the people for the
actions of its members. That is as it
should be.

Slater Shoo Advertising
Wearer's Satisfaction
Short talks by the Slater Shoe sd man. No. 4;
—Because the "Slater Shoe" is vldely
'because a hundred thousand dollars has
been spent in making it known,
'the makers could not afford to risk the
entire loss of this expensive reputation by turning
out shoes which do not in every particular back
up the makers' advertised claims.
So that the wearer secures through " Slater
Shoe " advertising assurance that the shoe is not
skimped in the hidden parts, that wear-worthy
materials are used throughout, that the shoe
must give entire satisfaction,
'because an advertised shoe which does not
satisfy, is subject to ten times as much criticism
as a shoe whicn merely wears but does not
make distinctive claims of superiority, such as
those made for the " Slater Shoe."
And this large advertising expenditure, besides forcing the makers to maintain the quality
factory out-put—permits specializing, with all
that means in economy of making.
The Slater Shoe
Made In Canada 40 years.   Goodyear welted.
For men $4.00 and $5.50.
For women $3.50 and $5.00.

in these days of progress and competition
no tr.i>n in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
the printer
a Marl
to all persistent and lib-
oral advertisers: it is road
by everyone.
