From the Onllia, Out., Times ef
July 24 thn following interesting bit
ef news affecting Slocan is obtained:
"Messrs. J. II. Lavallee and W.
II. Tudho'-e, of this town, and Mr.
Gee. Chew,of Midland,returned home
this week from their trip to British
Columbia, where they inspected the
recently purchased limits and mill
property of the Ontario Slocan Lumber Co. The company has a splendid
limber limit, and is turning out lumber and shinglos for the eastern
tilde, cedar shingles being shipped
into this province. Larger premises
and yards will probably be located
at Slocan, with water power to drive
the machinery, when lumber for export will be cut. A trade connection
with Australia has already been established, and shipments to Australian ports will commence as soon as
better times prevail on that continent,
the last four years' drouth having resulted in serious business depression.
While there are magnificent stretches
of timber country in British Coluin
bia, thero i.s little or no fire ranging
done, and the Iosj from bush fires is
enormous, the carelessness of milling
prospectors being a prime cause cf
this evil.

Thero came near  boing a terrible
disaster at the Lb Roi mine,Rossland,
Sidney Norman loft for Spokane
during the week and while thore told
tha following tale to the Spokesman-
Review of the local camp:
"Conditions in the dry ore belt
adjacent to Slocan are fairly satisfactory and the outlook points to a season of moro than average activity.
There is littlo doubt that several producing mines will be added te the
list in the near future. The distriet
has hitherto been held back by divers
causes, not tho least of which is thc
lack of unanimity existing in the
camp. Prospeotors and businessmen
appear to think that the best way to
stdl thuir claims ia to 'knock' the
possessions of others and in this way
capital has been kept out of the district on many occasions.
"At the Arlington mine a force of
50 men is employed and it is said
that within the past week a very important strike has been made in the
lower levels. The exact particulars,
however, have not been given out.
Shipments have been curtailed to
some extent owing to the fact that
the management does not consider
thc present freight and treatment
charges reasonable.
"At the Ottawa, recently bonded
by Pittsburg capital, a force of 10
men ii employed under the snperin
tendency of R, T. MePb.ee, formerly
of the Enterprise. The eastern owners are now on the ground and future
development will depend upon the
result* of their inspection. Under thc
present bond a payment falls due
earlv next month.
"A strike of some importance has
recently been made upon the Mabou
claini, owned by R. Kirkwood and
others, and lying on tha summit between the Arlington and Enterprise.
It is tho intention of the owners to do
consiiierabU work this season, but
for tke present little can be doue nntil a now camp has Often built. The
old buildings were destroyed by fire
a few days ago.
"Thc Republic wagon read, upon
which a force of 30 m«n has been engaged for some time past, is nearly
completed and 10 men are employed
at thc mine. This is one of tlm properties recently sold by Charles tl.
Dempster, ef Rossland, to Detroit
capitalists. Several of the latter
have just completed an inspection ofl
thoir holdings and it is understood
work is to be pushed. The same
parties own the Sapphire group on
Twelve Mile creek, and a full force
has recently been put to work there
preparing for an energetic campaign
of development
"At the Black Pi ince, which is under band to eastern parties represented by myself, 12 men are at work,
The plau of development includes
thc running of a 460 foot crosscut to
tap the vein at a depth of 203 feet
from the apex, and it is row in about
250 feet.    I  is advancing at the rate
nt'4fettaday.   New quarters havo
been erected, a new trail constructed
to the summit, and a water blast in
stalled to ventilate the mine.  Owing
to the late season the old workings
have only dried up sufficiently to
permit of mining,but belore I left the
work of putting in another raise to
the surface  was commenced  at the
90 foot level.    It will be carried up
on a good showing of ore and stores
run wither way.   It is probable that
shipment** will commence early in
the fall and, if the property proves
,np  to  expectations,   they   will   be
maintained during the winter.   Tho
force will be considerably increased
on my return to the mine and everything put ready for next winter's
work whilo the weather is r.eod.
'   "The Transfer, which has  been
under bond to me for tho past few
months, is now being worked by the
owners.   1 felt that development did
not warrant tho payment of $5000,
duo on August 15, and as the owners
refused to grant the requosted extension, I concluded to devote my attention to the Black Prince. The Transfer   is, howevor, a  ycry   promising
prospect and should oyentually do-
velope into a mine."

Shipments from the Enterprise were
again heavy for the week, 120 tons
haying beon sent oat. Of this amount
80 tons was ore and went to the Nolson smelter, whilo the remaining 40
tons, consisting of concentrates, went
to Trail. The Arlington shipped GO
tons of ore to Nelson. Should suitable arrangements be made witli the
smelter, shipments from the Arlington will increase to 1000 tons or more
a month. A small shipment will g»
out in a few days from the Florence,
the first sacks having been brought
down daring tho week. To date tho
exports of the division amount te 371£
For 1900 the exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made

officials then visiting Nelson and laid
the situation before them and, it ia
believed,  with satisfactory results.
Should suitable arrangements be effected it is quite possible Arlington

I beard a shout, "Lad"" of Lynn,

GroWtl. The vicar laid both loiters before me. Then, ns wheu one strikes a

unfold Itself; not all nt ouee—one does

"Bettor tbau that, Jack," said the
vicar. "Take these two letters. Show
them to Molly aud. nsk ber to wait
while the captain makes Inquiries. If
Lord Fyllngdale is nn honorable man,
he will court Inquiry, If not, tben we
are well rid of u noble knave."
1 look the letters nnd run across tlio
empty market pluce. on my wny I
saw the captain. He wus walking to-
wurd thi' Crown, With banging boa.l.
Let ua first deal wltb tbe captain.
He entered the room, huug up bis hai
sr.i the usual peg nud put his stick in
its accustomed corner. Then bo took
bis si'iit nnd Iqoked round.
"I am glad," be said, "tbat there Is
none present except you two. My
friends, 1 am heavy at henrt."
"Si) nre we," suid Ilie vicar.   "But go
on, captain."
"Ymi have heard, perhaps, n rumor
■ if whnt hn   i ii?"
"There are rumo - ol   uuny  kirn!

your rumor, captain?"
"Lord Kyllngdnle proposes to marry
Molly, nnd I have accepted, and sho
lias accepted, but il was to be a profound secret."
"It Is so profound ii secret that the
company at the gardens this evening
nre talking about nothing else."
Tbe captain groaned. "I have received
a letter." be snld. "1 do not believe It,
but the contents are disquieting. There
is no signature.   Head it."
The vicar read It: "Captain Crowle
Sir, you are a  very simple old  mnn
Vou nre so Ignorant of Loudon nnd of
the fashionable world that you dt i
oven know that Lord Fyllngdale, to
whom you are about to give your ward,
is the must notorious gambler, rake.'iml
profligate in the whole of that quarter
where the people of fashion and of
quality carry <>n their profligate lives.
In tlie Interests of innocence and vlr-
ture male some Inquiry into the truth
of this statement before laying your
lovely ward ln the arms of the villain
who bas come to Lynn witb no other
object than to secure her for'une."
"it is an anonymous letter." said the
.'car, "but there Is something to be
said In support of It. From what
source did you derive your belief In the
virtues of this young noblemanV"
"From Sam Semple."
"Who is In the service of bis lordship.
I know not whnt be does for blm, but If
he Is turned out of that service he will

"There Is nlso the Lady Anastasia."
"1 know nothing nbout ber ladyship
except thai sbe keeps tin- bnnii. ns tbey
call it, every evening and thai Ibe gaming table allures many to their destruction."
"My friends," said the captain, "whnt
am 1 to do?"
"Vou must make Inquiry. Vou must
tell Lord Fyllngdale thnt things bnve
been brought to yoo; tbnt you cannot
believe (hern ir. bi is possible, you do

"1 tliiuk I have in my pocket a means
of escape—a respite at least—unless
there aro worse liars iu tbe world than
those we have at Lynn."
"Liars ul I.yun. .hick? Who are
they? Oh, Jack, what hns happened?"
1 snt dow i on a garden bench. "Molly." I snid, "you hold the private character of Lord Fyllngdale in the highest
esteem, do you not?"
"Thero is no better mnn living. This
mnkes me ashamed of being so loath
in marry bim."
"Well, but, Molly, consider. Who bas

Semple for ono. lie is never weary of

"Hi* is a grateful soul nnd. on his

"The Rev Benjamin Purden,-once his

"Sorely. Noljody ought to know bettor. I will sh; v. you presently how admirable a witness to character this

" i hi re is Sir Harry Malyns. who tl -

"He Is himself, like the parson :i tine

spoke to me of his nobility '
"She hns also spoken to mc*—of other
tilings. See hero, .Molly.'' I lu -god
out the two letters. "What 1 ba here
contain the characters of all these excellent persona—the latest scandals ]
about them, their reputations and their !
"But, Jack, what scandals? Wbat
"Vou shnll see, Molly. Oh. the allegations may be fals», ono nud nil. For
what I know Sum may have the wings
of an archangel, and Mr. Purden may
be already overripe for tlio new Jerusalem.   Bnt you shnll read."
I offered her the letters. "No," she
said.   "Bond them yourself."
"The first, then, Is from my father's
first  cousin,  Zackary   Pentecrosse,   a
j booksi'llor in Little Britnin, which is a
I part of London.   He is, I believe, a respectable, (!od fearing man.   Vou will I
| observe that he does not voftch for the
| truth of his Information."
1 then read nt length the letter which
you bave already beard.
"What do you think, Molly?"
"1 don't know what to think.   Is tho
world so wicked?"
"Here is another letter, concerning
the Bev. Benjamin Purden. observe
that this Is another and an Independent witness." So 1 read the Second letter, which yon have also heard.
"What do you think of this worthy
genth'.iinii, Molly?"
"Oh. Jnck, f am overwhelmed! Tell
me more, whnt li ini'iiiis"—
"It means, my dear, that a ruined
gamester thought to Uml nn heiress
wins would know nothing of his tarnished reputation. She must be rich.
All in' wanted was ber money, she
must not have her money tied up; It
must be nil In his own bands, to do
with It what be chose—that Is to suy,
to dissipate and waste lt ln riot ami
raking and gambling"—
"Lord Fyllngdale? Jnck, think of bla
fnee, think of bis manners. Are thoy
such ns yon would expect In a rake?"
"There are perhaps different kinds of
rakes. Tom Rising would spend tbe i
nlgbt drinking and bawling songs. Another kind would practice wickedness
ns eagerly, tun with mnn* politeness
What do i know of such men? Certain I nm thnt loni Fyllngdale would
not icour the Street I ami piny tbe Mo-
hawk, but that be hns round ol her vices
more pleasant and more, apparently,

"i don'l understand, .inok. All the

"Well, he beard of nn heiress. She
belonged to a town remote from fashion—n town of simple merchants und

"Who told him about this heiress?"
"A creature culled Snm Semple,
whom the captain onoe cudgeled. Why,
Molly, it wns revenge. Iu return for
the cudgeling lie would plnce you nnd
your fortune in the hands of n mun
who would bring misery upon you aud
ruin on your fortune. Heavens, how
(he thing works out! And It happened
just in the nick of time that a spring
wns found lu the town—a spring whose
medicinal properties— lin!" I jumped
to my feet. "Molly, who found thnt
spring? Sam Semple. Who wrote to
the doctor about it? Snm Semple.
Who spread abroad n report thnt the
physicians of London were sending
their patients to Lynn? Sum Semple.
How mnny patients have come to us
from London? None, save uml except
only the party of those who came secretly in bis lordship's train to sing his
praises nud to work his wicked will.
Why, Molly"— 1 burst Into n laugh,
for uow 1 understood, ns one some
limes does understand, suddenly und
without proof other thnn the rapid conclusion, the full meaning of tbe whole,
"Molly, 1 say, there has never been any
medicinal spring here at all.   The doc
tor's well is but common spring water,
'l'l,ere are no cures. The whole business is n plan, a bite, an invention of
Snm Semple!"
".luck, bave a caro. How can tbat
be when tho doctsir has a long list of

What conning I    What Blgnal serv
has this servant of the devil rendered
lo his master!"
Truly I was carried out of myself by
this discovery, which explained everything.
"So," I went ou, "they enme here all
thc way from London, their lying excuse that they were ordered here by
tiieir physicians, ninl we, poor, simple
j full;, fell into the snare.    All ths* coiin-
\ inside   fell   Into   the   snare,   and   sve
1 have been fooled Into drinking common
water and calling it what you pleass5,
I aud wo nave built gardens and engag-
1 ed musicians and created a spa, and,
I oh, heavens, what a liar be is!    What
a liar!   Tills comes, I suppose, of being
I a poet."
Then Molly laid her lieasl upon my
j arm. ".lack," Bhe said very seriously,
"do you really believe thl« story? Duly
consider what, it means to nie." Molly
was more concerned about Lord Fyllngdale than about Sam Semple.
"I believe every word of It. Molly. I
believe thnt they have all jollies! in tlie
conspiracy, more or less; tbnt they
lave all got promises and tbat tomorrow morning, if you do not refuse to
meet this man in St. Nicholas' church,
you will bring upon yourself nothing
hut misery and ruin."

In an interview in the Ferguson
Eaple on things political, Smith
Curtis says there will undoubtedly be
three parties in the field at the next
jirovincial elsctions—Liberals, Conservatives and Progressives. His
influence and support would be found
with the latter.
The proTincial gevcrnmeat, by a
recent order-in-council, prohibits the
•expert of any kind of timber cut from
government lands. Formerly the
prohibition applied only to cedar. As
in Ontario, if the Tanks want our
timber they must build their mills en
•this side sf the line, so enabling Can
adians-i to realize the benefits to thc
full of their natural resources.
A member of the British house of
commons has expresie j the few that
the Americans are buying up all the
vacant lands in the Northwest Territories, ss precluding the immigration
of British settlers. The sudden interest in matters colonial on the part
of chaps at 'ome is surprising and is
about on a par with their ignorance
as to the area of habitable land in
western Canada's wheat belt. Thore's
a plenty for Briten nnd Yank alike.
Despite the increase in de in the
poll tax, from $50 to $100, there is an
ever-increasing horde of Chinese
coming into Canada. Far ths year
ending June 30, the gross revenue
derived by the Dominion from the
immigration ef Chinese amnunted to
$364,972, as compared with $178,704
daring the previous year. The num
ber who paid the tax was 3325, com
"pared with 2518 in 1901. British
Columbia, as usual, got the majority
of these undesirables.

The government has decided that
the present is not an auspioiotis time
in whieh to float tho proposed huge
provincial loan, as thc financial
sharks in London have their attention teo fully occupied \yith other
schemes. Fate has accordingly besn
kind to British Columbia, as her people are spared thosgonv of increased
burdens of dobt. Sanity may come
to the legislator" in ths meantime
and the presumed nt-ed for thc lavish
expenditure of money pass away.

No industry at the present day offers so many convincing inducements
to investors than dees that associated
with mining, nor is thi re a business
undertaking extant which provides
anything liko as heavy dividends as
mining. The stand is well takon
tbat It takes a mine to make a mine,
yet once the profit stage is reached
dividends eoino quickly and on a
large scale. Money derived frem
mining is clean and not burdened
with hardships and strictures on the
toilers sb ii the general rule with
other Industries, and money so earned affords pleasure alike te employee
and employer. A miner glories in
developing a rich pay ohute of ore
aid the higher the returns extracted
from the mineral the more pride he
feels in his work. Can thc samo be
said of any other toiler? Mining life
offers excitement and variety, other
Industries a steady grind year in and
year out. As buna fide evidence of
the profits made in mining it mav be
cited tbat the mines in the United
States alone paid in dividends in 1901
no less a sura than $200,000,000, being
$15,000,000 more than in 1900. This
huge dividend was greater than tha
net earnings of all the combined railroads if the country. Does mortal
man want anything better?
