Up to Tuesday of this week the east
drift on the No. 4 lovol of the Ottawa
had penetrated the ore chute struck a
few davs ago 20 feet, aud no break
appeared. The ore streak is wavy.but
prwtty uniform in richness. In the
No. !l level two short bunches of ore
were passed through before the main
chute was eoeou t d. ut so far iu
the No. 4 it would Mem as if all three

One part of the ore streak is of shipping quality and somo lienutiful samples art; beiug takeu out, native silver
being flaked all over them. Tho grade

mine, and would sort to JoOOO net by
the carload. Concentrating ore fills
the balance of th>* ledge, and this is
lieing stored for further use, a reduction plant being one of the possibili-
tios of the future.
The east vein has a dip of 38 degrees, giving working grouud between
tin No. 1 and No. 3 levels of about 150
feet, affording an immense area of
profit-bearing matter. Bosides, there
is all the rich ground below the floor

Mill People t'eiulnj.
Word has beon rewired by tbeloca]
representatives of thu Ontario Slocan
Lumber Co. that a number of the
shareholders' in the concern will anive
here next week from the oast, for the
purpose of inspecting the company'**
interests. At the samo tims it is believed arrangement-- will be mad*", for
the i-ommenctmient of construction of
the big lumber mill and other'portions
of the proposed plain. Another thi**.'*;
is siueeivly hoped for by the citizens
as a result of the viisit.thatth'' present
feeling of friction between the town
and the company be allayed, and that
the utmost confidence lw restored.
The position of the town's affairs absolutely demands it.
A ('heap K.l.rtloa.
The expenses in connection with
the recent election held in the Slocan
riding were by no means extravagant,
and the same may be said of the personal expenses of the candidates. The
riding is au awkward one to get
around in. yet the returning officer's
outlay for everything was less than
S»'*tV). Wm. Davidson, the successful
candidate, has published his expense
account, and it will be an eye-opener
to politicians in other constituencies.
llis total expenses wero onlv $161.26,
inclusive of hall rent, board, railroad
fare. etc. Th.. marvel is how he man
aged to do it.
Developing Uie Mnyettu Group.
Fred C.irlisle is working single-
handed developing the Mayetta group,
adjoining tlie Ottawa, and is meeting
with success. A tunnel is being driven
on the east vein, starting on a likely
bunch of ore. The vein is widening
and Improving. The west vein has
also lieen stripped in a number of
places and im as promising as on the
Ottawa. From the 1st to the 16th of

at the Mayetta.

manager of the Howard Fraction, received a remittance from his company
and proceeded to partially straighten
out the mine accounts. He expects
to liquidate the balance at an early
date and will then resume operations.
The heavy snowfall of late has badly
blocked the trail to the mine and it
will take some lalior to re open it.
PARKS OK HICMIKYX.
Who Own, the Fr«o**M That Will Treat
Arlington Orel.
There has lieen much iu the papers
of lato of a new, simple and effective
process for the treatment of low grade
ores, either gold or silver, and Dr.
Hendryx, an early pioneer of the
Kootenays, claims to be its inventor.
From the published details, the process is very similar to that designed
by Prof. Parks for tlie treatment of
the huge low grade deposits of silver
oro contained in the Arlington mine,
in tliis division. For a year or more,
local folk have given Prof. Parks the
credit for originating this process.and
they have been anxiously awaiting the
establishment of the promised plant
at the Arlington mine.
Confusion, however, now follows, as
Dr. Hendryx claims that his cyanide
process of treating silver-gold ores is
the one to lie established at the Arlington mine. Two other mines are
also to adopt the process-the Republic, at Republic, and the Kendall, at
Kendall, Mont. It is quite evident,
then, that the Parks process and the
Hendryx process, if not identically the
same, are so much alike that there is
no distinguishing the difference. That
the elwtro-cyanide process will successfully treat the Arlington ores, as
well as those of neighboring mines,
has been undoubtedly proven, and it
matters little to the camp who claims
to ba the originator of the idea so long
as it is placed in speedy operation!
here.
Dr. Hendryx says a small proportion of copper in ore* is not fatal to
his prooeSB, as the weak solution of
cyanide exerciss-s a selective function
and takes out the silver aud gold liefore attacking th:- copper. The essential feature of the process is the agitii-
tor, or spiral screw, iu the lank, which*
raiaos the ore constantly to the surface
of the water and jjives it a chance to
be attacked bv the oxygen, thus plac-
irg every portion of it in touch with
lhe cyanide) The electri.l disposi*
ion of thc silver ainl go'.c: in bullion
am tho plates is also nu important
factor, nltfiough it is not new.
Tho Doctor further add* that at the
Arlington everything hits bt-en shut
down pending the construction of a
mill after his idea. The process had
lieen found to satisfactory that it was
a loss of mon:>y to ship any more Arlington ore to the smelters on a $5 or
St" treatment Itasis, when it might be
treated at the mine for $1.50 per ton,
and therefore it was decided not to
take out another pound until the mill
was completed. The Arlington ores
carry high values in silver, som 'times
running 300 to 100 oz. and some of the
finest native silver specimens ever takeu out in British Columbia huve been
found at the Arlington. If the Hen-
drvx svstem will treat this class of ore
a-i well as the tests indicate, it is one
of tho liest inventions that has been
made in mining for many yean.
be made to connect with tho shaft and
the drainage question will be solved.
The new workings will givo ample
opportunity to stppe out ore, enabling
the plucky owners to reap some reward for their heavy laliors.
Mlaennnere Incorporate.
Incorporation papers have been issued the mineowners of the Slocau
country, who havo organized as the
Silver-Lead Mineowners' Association,
iimitiid, the object lieing to pool the
disposal of the ores. Those signing
the incorporation papers are: Georgo
Alexander, W. E. Zwicky, H. Gieger-
ich, Kaslo; W. S. Drewry, New Dan*
ver; N. .1. Cavanagh, Louis Pratt and
Oscar White, Sandon.
Narrowly Mli,.al a Wrei-U.
Last Thursday's Nelson train was
aliout throe hours late in arriving here,
having narrowly missed n bad spill
after leaving the Junction. One sot
of springs under the tender worked
loose and sprung out of place, almost
derailing the machine. The train was
brought to a standstil' and the crew
and passengers repaired the damage
as well as possible, enabling the train
to proceed.

Construction.
Announcement was mado in New
York last Friday that Kidder, Pea-
Ixxiy t% Co., of Boston; Baring Bros.
& Co., ltd., of London; and Baring,
Mngoun & Co., of New York, are offering $7,290,000 of a Great Northern
Railway Co. two year 6 per cent loan,
secured by -62,000,000, or S9,720,OCO
.St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba
Pacific extension sterliug 4s, due July
1, 1940, deposited with the Bankers'
Safe Deiiosit & Trust Company of
New York. Certificates of participation of i'200, or .¥972, are offered at
991 and interest.
It was announced that the notes
had already been disposed of, and it
was said that they were issued for the
purpose of getting money "needed for
improvements."" No statement could
U* obtained at the ollice of J. J. Hill.
An official circular sets forth that it
was deemed expedient to go iuto the
money market and pay over 5 per cent
for a two years' loan, believing that
before tho maturity of the loan, arrangements can bo mado to market
the bonds at better prices than the
present market offers.
In official circles it is stated this
money is to be used to construct the
Coast-Kootenay Railway from Vancouver to the Boundary country.
President Hill stated when out on his
last trip that the road would be built,
and in tbe east he has stated on several occasions that that extension was
about the only one now contemplated
by the Great Northern. Coupled with
that is the statement made in Vancouver last Saturday by Premier McBride
that the Coast-Kootenay road would
lie completed within two years.

tlie recipient was necessary to a proper arrangement of affairs.
A postscript added that, though the

rlve at an early settlement; una il
wus confidently expected that, sinci)
,jnly ono legitimate heir had apr

Cupar hastened home to his chambers, ami shared hla Information with
i>is father,
"It would seem from this," Bald
"ilcxandor, after they had consulted
awhile, '.'that wo are to expect no
more trouble. They must have given
up the search for tho girl."
'1 don't think there's been any
search," replied Caspar. "I have
kept my eyes upon the movements at
police headquarters, and f know that
no effort hns been calliKl for thoro.
Her few friends were blinded by my
letter. Thoy believe she's run ofl of her
own accord; ami since young Waybrook is down bo tint, 1 don't know
ol n single human being that hus any
particular interest in bringing Uor
buck. No—we're nil safe in that
ii'iarter,"
1 hope so." responded thc father,
with a dubious note In his speech.
"I know it." ciied Caspar, snapping his fingers.
And without further remark he
proceeded to brew a punch
Later in the evening; Caspar lulled
tho new keeper down from tho upper chamber, and questioned her
concerning the disposition of hei'
aharge He hntl put great faith In
ICndora, nnd she had promised him
i ;\at sho woultl make Christine understand that further opposition on
hoi' part, would be worse thun useless.
"Surely, sir," sub! the woman,
with solemn seriousness, "1 am con-
vinced that the girl will Submit resignedly to the fate in store for her.
Sho knows now to a certainty what
a rig Paul Waybrook is running, and
she has more than ball promised me
lhat she will accept tho situation
which teems to have, lieen designed
for her from thc liisl. Upon my
life, sir, I don'l think you will have
any more trouble with her. Of
course, she is still n girl, and will
have her whims; und yon had better
humor her until you arc able by
right to command."
Caspar nodded, and coincided; antl
he was very gracious, too. He promised the new keeper that, if matters turned out ns he expected, he
would enrich her beyond her wildest
hopes.
On the following day, at noon, t'ns-
pur called Endora down again, and
informed her that both he and Mr.
Compton were going out. untl that
they might be gone until evening.
She was to keep the outer doors securely locked and the shutters closed.
Tbo woman listened, and nodded,
and returned to her post.
At two o'clock, precisely, Alexander  Compton  and  Caspar     were      at
tlie     door    of No.    C street.
The door wus of solid rosewood, and
tho portico above it wus of brown-
stone, und eluborutely sculptured;
und upon tho broad silver plate they
read the name:
APPLKTON.
Tho precious twain stood still upon the white grunito steps, and were
wondering why the meeting hud boon
called nt this place, when some one
came up behind them. They turned
untl beheld tho administrator.
"Ah! Oood-day, gentlemen.'' said
iho hit ter, bowing and smiling.
"Is this the place of mooting?"
us'-ied Caspar, blankly.

"Mr.  LefTlngton  hns  not   arrived?"
snld  Caspar,  interrogatively.
"Mr. Leflington will not be here,"
replied the administrator. "1 saw

so Iiis absence will not matter."
Thn company weni soated, and u

right, down the side, sat Alexander
Compton and Caspar. Upon Ids

Thi* silence wns becoming oppressive—oppressive, at least, to Alexander and Cnspur, to whom there wus
something peculiarly ominous in it.
The.v trembled In their seats. Under
tho shadow of this silence their dark:
sins grew heavy and sore. But tho
hroak tame.
Tho administrator, sitting, nodded
to thc judge and then to the others,
und said:
"OetiUemon, us this meeting is entirely Informal, and us our business
is nil plain before us, I propose lhat
wc expedite it with all possible dis-
Biutch." . ,   ,
Those who snt around nodded assent.
■'First, then," pursued the administrator, "l will read the attested
copy of the last will uud testiuncnt
of Victor st. Clair."
IIo leud tho document, and at its
closo remarked:
•'Thus, wc see there nre five salient
propositions In this will. First:
\ ictor St. Clair bequeaths everything to his wife Rachel. Second:
hu provides that snid Rachel muy. cf
her own pleasure, bequeath the
istnte in turn. Third: In the event '
of tho suid Rachel's dying intestate
the properly fulls to his child Paulina or her h.eiri. Fourth: In event
if (here being no heirs of said Victor's own body, then, upon Rachel's
di ing intestate, the property goes t0
tho heirs of the sister of Victor St.
Clair. And, fifth, failing all these, '

The secret of henlth, as every iutelll-
lifl'nt physician knows, ls free nnd full
circulation of the blood, and this circulation is dependent absolutely 00 tlu>--
oush   oxygenation,    ln   mnny   eases
where erroneous habits of living have
been so long continued thnt congestion
has become chronic in one shape or unother-obesity, gout, rheumatism, constipation     or     tuberculosis     having
camped in the system and crippled It—
the patient is not apt to he in a condition  to readily assimilate n sullicient
quantity of oxygen direct from the atmosphere.    The breathing  apparatus
. must tlrst  be  properly  developed, so
tbnt the patient shall bu able to gradually increase the supply of nir to thc
system, uutil at last he recovers the
normal power of deep breathing.
With the building up of the lungs
through  proper breathing there  is a
metabolism of all the tissues and organs, so that, for most men, breathing
exercises are more important than any
mere muscular exercise.   Not only the
lungs, but all the lnternul orgaus are
brought into piny by correct breathing.
It develops the heart, stomach,  liver
tnd kidneys directly and indirectly nud
nourishes  all    these   organs  ns  thej
shoulil be nourished by more blood and
better blood  In constant and  regular
Circulation.   Breathing, therefore. Is a
sovereign remedy for our national dis
ease of nervous depletion.    It  might
well replace the countless tonics, stliu
uhuits and anodynes now so commonly
resorted to, where results nre nothing
less than tragic In thousnutls of cases.

A recent traveler In Soinaliland gives
the followiuK curious Incident show
lug the Mohammedan hatred for pigs:
"We shot two wart bogs    ne n pnrtic
ulnrly big hoar.   Alan wished to keep
the tusks, hut of course none of the
gotnalls would touch the unclean ani
nnil.    At last n bribe of 2 rupees In
diK'ed the Midpati woman to chop the
tusks out with n hatchet.   Even then
she would not touch them nnd  with
the help of two sticks, which she used
like a pair of tones, put them on n
camel.   Then there was a long dispute
aliout tbe hatchet. No one would touch
it.    It hud lieen defiled.   Of course this
was pure affectation and playing to the
gallery on the ayah's part.   At bone
with her native tribe she woultl hav.*
Surged nil the pig she could get.   Itut
It flattered the Somalis, nnd we march
ed off, the nyah holding the hatchet nt
arm's leuj-th as If It were going to bite
her."

procosies to sepnrate the Qbroua part
which constitutes the linen. First It Is
Bleeped In water anil then passed
Ihrough n drying and beating process
un revolving wheels until nil foreign

THE SLOCAN DRILL,

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20th, 1903.
EUITORIAX   OBOPPIMUS.
u
The Tories have stolen a march on
the Grits and lodged additional protests against King, in Cranbrook, and
Tanner, in Saanich. They now have
seven protests to their credit, as
against three entered by the Grits. It
will be surprising if the government
majority does not grow.
Hou. Charlos Wilson did the trick
in Vancouver on Wednesday, being
re-elected by upwards of 900 majority.
Vancouver folk evidently think the
•Conservatives are all right. The result
of the election does not prove John A.
Maedonald, the new Liberal leader, to
be a heaven-sent genius.
Next Thursday the local legislature
will meet for the transaction of business, the chief item of which is the
betterment of the financial position of
/the province. The people have voted
the Conservatives to power, and the
party in return guarantees n safe, progressive and permanent government.
The time is drawing near for the
citizens to elect a new board of city
fathers, but -so far everything is quiet
in municipal political circles. It will
require something stronger thau a
porous plaster to draw a full set of
eligibles to the civic chairs, and some
choice seats are liable to remain unoccupied. '
The political atmosphere at Ottawa
is much agitated, tho impression prevailing that a general Dominion election is imminent. Stray hiuts dropped by the cabinet ministers lead to
the idea that thc elections will take
place the latter part of January. It
behooves the Conservatives of Kootenay to get their affairs in shape and
prepare for a successful campaign
against Big Bill Galliher.
Canada's finances are maintained in
a remarkably buoyant condition, revealing the fact that the Dominion's
tide of prosperity has not yet commenced to ebb. For the four months
ending with October the government
revenue was $23,735,715 and tho expenditure 19,227,919. The receipts are
$2,000,000 better than for the corresponding period of last year, while the
expenditure shows a reduction of $2,-
000,000 in the same time.
Premier McBride made an imi>or-
tant announcement at a Conservative
rally in Vancouver, on Saturday-
night. He stated the Coast - Kootenay
Railway would be completed within
the next two ytars, presumably by iii
terests friendly to Jim Hill. Thc moment that road is coiniiionccd, then
one may look for the C.P.R. to rush
the construction of their cut-off to
Spence's Bridge. The premier also
stated that it was tho lixetl policy of
thu government to grant no land or
cash bonus to Hny road without first
obtaining control of the passenger
and freight rates.
Evidences of impending depression
are multiplying in the United States
and a note of warning is boing sounded by conservative financial journals.
Bank failures are on the increase, the
reduction in tho number of employed
continues, and industrial unrost is
becoming more manifest. The labor
unions are taking cognizance of the
threatening peril and are preparing
their numbers for it. At tho recont
congress of the American Federation
of Labor at Boston, the leaders all
stated a great depression was in sight
and much misery would result. The
Dominion bids fair to escape the full
effects of the storm, as there is a vast
amount of railroad building in sight
for years to come. In fact, any such
depressii-n in the States may work to
the advantage of Canada, in that population would be attracted hither 011
a much larger scale even than at
present.   There's plenty of room.
