EastmIned bjr Party.
Last Thursday a party of influential Michigan and Ohio capitalists
arrived here for the purpose of in
specting ths Ss pphire group of claims
on Twelve Mile creek, which was
floated last winter in Detroit by Chas.
Dempster. The party consisted of N.
D. Carpenter and wife, Wallace
Franklin, J. A. B jwden and F. p.
Hovey, of Detroit, and W. H. Bo*****
den, of CincinnattL They were Accompanied by s leading American
minis**; expert in ths person cf
Wayne Choate, sf Detroit. All the
parties are shareholders in the Sap
phireGold Mines, ltd,Mr. Carpenter
being president. Their visit had to
do with the examination of the pre
perty previous to commencing development and Mr. Choate was along
to pass expert opinion thereon. Thev
were met by K. C. Campbell Johnston, engineer for the company, and
Chas. Hurlburt, managing director
ofthe SIitcau-Republic Co.
On Friday tha visitors inspected
Uie Sapphire and May groups, on
Twelve Mile; an Saturday ths Republic group., on Erin meuntain; en Sunday the Arlington; and on Tuesday
again visited ths Twelve Mile sectien.
As a result of their visit a small force
ef men was »ent up to tbe Sapphire
on Sunday to do some stripping, so
enabling Mr. Choate te better examine the ground. Upon his report will
depend future developments,the idea
being te employ about 20 men on the
property. So far the visitors liavjk
been well pleased with .their pi*/-
chase sad are confident of happy results.   ■
They, too, have thorouehly enj >y-

the scenery and climate. Since visiting oth. r sections of tha camp they

iy evident "-isn every hand, and are
e mvineed that a great future awaits
this section. Tlie rt-c-rd of pa t and
present shipments from the division,
added to the variousoutside improvements at the suver.il luiuea,constitute
in Uitjir opinion a bona lide testimony
to the worth of (he dry ore belt. The
investment of tlie numerous American companies in the camp is also encouraging to their fellow countrymen; who are being constantly attracted hither by (lie reports of the
richness, of the oies.
As a mining man of experience and
an expert .engineer, Mr. Chuate is
greatly taken with the camp, It is
his lirst visit to thi** section, though
familiar with the Lardeau, Boundary
and Kotsland camps. His inspec
lions here, together with information
gleaned el other claims aud mines,
led Mr. Choate to remark that there
was every indication of a rich and
permanent camp, with undoubted
mineral resources. The veins were
large and continuous and easily
worked and, with proper treatment
aceerded the ores, there should be
numerous heavy dividend payers.
Uo was particularly taken with the
Arlington and characterized it as one
of the biggest propositions ho had yet
seen anywhere, possessingsilver ores

Asked to what were his impression*-*
of the Republic, Mr. Chont* raid lie
had not come in to inspect thut property, but he had ne hesitation in
classing it as a good thing. There
was sufficient oro in sight te warrant
the property becomfng s gieat mine,
and the results would undoubtedly
justify heavy development expenses.
In the main shaft he had seen two
seams of ore, one four feet wide and
tho other 12 lueses, forming a chuto
not often equalled for a surface exposure. The values were self evident
And he would recommend tbe company to exploit fully their possession,
having the ultimate end in view of
erecting a mill for treating all their
vein matter on the ground and so
save extra handling. In brief, Mr.
Choate warmly congratulated the
Republic people on the appearance
of their property, and he certainly
stiffened their faith in tho mine.
The expressions of tho entire party
were eminently complimentary ef the
camp and their visit will result beneficially to the locality.

several hundred feet of drifting was

The reportjof the minister of mines
for ths year ending 31st December
last has just been issued. It is gotten

with it no new features.
In his report of the Slocan district,
Gold Commissioner Chipman has the
f.llowing to say: The largest ton nsgs
producer in the district Wss the Arlington ains, in ths Slocan City division, which has to its credit 5283
tous. The most prosperous portion
ofthe district was undoubtedly the
Slocan City division. This prosperity is largely owing to the character
ofthe ore, which is mostly ofa dry
nature, and consequently the low
price obtainable fer lead did not have
the same depressing effect on the industry as in tba Slocan division,
where the lead silver ores predominate.
ll. P. Christie, the local mining recorder reports: Although the office
stAtistics show in some branches a
decrease compared with those of the
previous year, the actual mining
done and general progress of tke division is very satisfactory,

The recent strike on the Mabou
claim, just above the Enterprise and
Neepawa, is of greater proportions
than at first thought.    Continuous
work has opened up the vein over
the bottom portion of the clsim and
proves it to be identical with that
stripped on the top part two or throe
years ago.   It was always thought
the croppings on top ware those of
tlie Neepawa lead, but it turns eat to
be another lead paralleling that of
thc Neepawa a hundred feet to the
east.   The various openings new cut

been run 503 feet apart, the lower one

This has been a remarkably heavy
week ia ore shipments, no less than
221 tons having boen shipped frona
three different properties. It is largely  attributable  to  tho  Enterprise,
which is putting on an extra spurt,
The mine sent ont 140 tons, of which
60 tons wore concentrates, 20 tons
were slimes, and 60 tons ore.   The
ore went to Nelson and the other products to Trail.   With this  week's
shipments   the   Enterprise  figures
reach 1060 tons, being an excess of
360 tons over last year's total figures.
Seventy tons of ore was sent out by
the Arlington and 11 tons to Nelson
by tho Fourth of July, whose initial
shipment it is for tho year.   To date
shipments  total  3536 tons, or 1000
tons better than the whole of 1900.
For 1900 the exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made
up from 10 properties. Last year
the exports totalled 6529 tons, from
14 properties. Following is n full

Ono of the surprising features of
mining life in this division is the carelessness exhibited by soma men in
allowing valuable properties to lapse
to the crown. Several instances may
be cited where claims developed at a
cost of thousands of dollars, equipped
bv fine buildings and trails,and having line chutes of ere exposed, have
been allowed to run out. Only this
year two loading properties en Ten
Mile were restaked, their owners
having failed to keep up the annual
assessmen's. Thoy wore the Oregon

The latter in particular is a flrst-
class !pre|iosltlon In. 1897 Charley
Sanderson, of Edmonton, held tho

of Vancouver, spent about $8000 on
It and then relinquished his bond.
He had been flim-flammed in his
work, as the drifts, run under contract, never followed the lead. The

is 300 feet of work done, consisting ef

mere passing fancy? You will be tired
of me In a month. You will regret that
you did not choose, rather, among the
fine ladies who speak your language
and follow your manners."
"Molly, 1 am a man.wbo does not encourage Idle fancies and passing loves.
You will find no change ln mc As 1

Sbe shivered. Tho prospect mads

"Cun yon doubt Molly? I will take
you." He hesitated; be took ber hand
again; bo stooped and kissed her fore-

kiss, no tenderness lu bis touch, no
emotion In his voice. ■' Sucb as be was

and beautiful and melodious with tbe

"Sit down. Molly, nnd let as talk."
He did not sit down; be stood before
her; he walked attout -the room; be
played wltb, tbe gold tassels of bis
sword. .
"Molly, since we aro to be married,
we must be married at once."
"1 am your lordship's serv.snt"
"As soon as possible. Are yon
ready ?'
"Ready? I suppose I could be ready
In a month or six weeks."
•'Why, what Is there to do?"
"1 have to get things-dresses, bouse
linen, all kinds or things."
"My dear, you are uot going to marry

"Good gracious! How should I know

will need nothing."
"Where will you tnke me?"
"1 think, first of all, to my bouse .
'Jloueestershlre. It Is not fully fur
nisheil. The late possessor, my cousins
whom I succeeded, was, unfortunately,
a gambler. He had to cut down his
woods and to sell tbem. He even had
to sell bis furniture and pictures. But
I can soon put the bouse in order fit
for your reception." It was be himself
and not bis predecessor who bad sold
these things. "If lt Is not so fine at
first as you would wish, we can soon
make It worthy, of you."
I have often wondered wbat be intended to do with his bride If things
hod gone differently. I am now of
opinion that he Intended to take ber to
this great country bouse, which, as I
have understood, stands in a secluded
part of the country, with no near neighbors and no town within reach, anil
that he Intended to leave her tbere
while he himself .went up to London
.to resume tbe old gaming and raking
which be desired so much, although
they had been bis ruin. Fate, however,
prevented this design.
"If you desire my happiness, my

-"you will take me to that country

of fashion, and 1 bave no wish to Uvo

Lady Anastasia bow tbe great ladles

"Everything shall be as you wish,
Molly—everything, believe me."
He tben, by way of Illustrating this
assurance, proposed a tblng which be
himself wished.
"We must be married Immediately,
Molly, because I am called away by
affairs of Importance to Gloucestershire. I ought to leave tbls place not
later than Saturday." Tbe day was
"Saturday? We must be married on
"Sooner than Saturday. Tomorrow.
That will give us time enough to make
wbat little preparations may be necessary."
"Tomorrow I But we cannot be married so soon.".
"Everything Is prepared. I bave the

"Oh!"- It was nil she could say.
"There Is another thing, four guard*
Ian would like to make a public ceremony of the wedding. He would bang
tbe town witb flags and ring tbe bells
and summon the band of the marrowbones and. cleavers, while all tbe world
looked on." .
"Yes. He is so proud of the marriage
that he would like to celebrate It"
"And you, Molly?"
"I should like to be married with ne
one.to look on and no one to know
anything about it until It .was over."
"Why,, then, Molly — then we are
agreed. I was In great fear that you
.would not,think with me, My dear. If
there Is ona .thing, which I abhor It Is
tbe public ceremony' and -the private
feasting nnd .merriment with wblcb a

want the town to" be all agog. We do
not want to set alf tongues wagging,

grand' triumphal march and a feast'to

"Can we be private, then?"
"Certainly. ( I can arrange everything. Now,'Molly, my plan Is tbls:

"But 1 cannot deceive tbe captain."
"There Is no deception. He bss
agreed to the match; be knows that yoo
have agreed. There Is oue consideration, Molly, which makes a private
marriage necessary. I could not consent to a public wedding or to a wedding feast, because my rank forbids.
It would be Impossible for me to Invite
any person of. my own position to sucb
a feast, and it would be Impossible for
me to sit down wltb those persons-
worthy, no doubt and honest—whom
tbe captain would certainly wish to In*

Tbls was certainly reasonable and
certainly true. Bank must be respected, and a noble earl cannot sit down to
feast with merchants, skippers, mates,

"Yea," sbe sighed; "1 understand."
HE "society" continued
to meet, but Irregularly, during this period
of excitement wben
everybody was busy
making money out of
the company or Joining In the amusement!
or looking on. The coffee house attracted some of the members, the tavern others, the gardens or the long
room others. It must be confessed that
the Irregularities of attendance and tin*
absences and tbe many new topics of
discourse caused the evenings to be
much more animated than of old, when
there would be long periods of slleucc,
broken only by some reference to the
arrival or departure of a ship, the decease of a townsman or the chauge In
the weather.
This evening the meeting consisted
nt first of the vlcnr and the master of
the school only.
"We are the faithful remnant," said
the vicar, taking bis chair. "The mayor, uo doubt. Is at tbe coffee bouse,
the aldermen at the tavern and the
doctor lu tho long room. The captain,

The master of the school hung up his
lint nud took'his usual plnce.   Then he
put bis band into bis pocket.
"1 have this day received"—
At the same moment the vicar put
his bnnd Into bis pocket and began In
the same words:
"I have this day received"—
Both slopped.   "I interrupt you, Mr.
Pentecrosse," said the vtenr.
"Nay, sir; after you."
"Let us not stnud'on ceremony, Mr.
Pentecrosse.    What have you received?"
"I have received a letter from London."
"Mine Is from Cnnibrldge. You were
nbout to speak of your letter?"
"It concerns Sam Semple. once my
pupil, now secretary to the Ix>rd Fyllngdale, who has his quarters over
"What does your correspondent tell
you shout Sam?   That he Is tbe equal I
of Mr. Pope and the superior of Mr.

"The letter is a reply 1 addressed to

him to tell me If he could lenru something of the present position nnd reputation of Sam Semple. who gives himself, I understand, grent nlrs nt the

he snld, "'tis the veriest trnsh. A

"he Is said to be received anil welcomed by the wits." "Tbey must be,"
be replied. "Ibe wits of Wapplng or the

ho was well nigh starving. I gave hlin
a sixpenny dinner In a cellar, where I
myself was dining nt the time. He

Ing the printer; thnt he was dunned
nnd threatened for the debt; tbnt If be

The main point to bo noted in
lenrnin* basket bull. With a view of
lieeoiirni* tjn expert, player, is that a
straight, clean game must be played.
One must, learn to catch ihe 1ml 1
surely, to puss vary quickly, nnd to
stop when running n»- full siiet-d uu-
nelinlcly upon recci.ing the ball.
Tho best wny to receive a ball is by
jiinil ing for it nnd landing squarely
on both feet. 'Hi's will n*|iiiio n.
great deal sif printict- nnd good Judgment so ns not to strike nn opponent and thus be penalized for charging. The game sif bus'.el b0.1l is iv
poor giiine indeed il' there i.s much individual playing, hut the giune is improved from a spectator's standpoint, and is faster nnd bettor in every way if there is much quick passing. Theref-.sie. you should endeavor
to receive the ball und puss It to
one of your own men as m.iffkl*' as
possible. The most effectual passing
is successful v.ben it is passed from
t---« third or fourth man. who, of
course, must be in the forward line,
und should be close in under thc basket, if possible, whore he will bo free
from his sbeck io ret n clear shot,
nt tho basket. To pu.*s Lhe ball to a
second player does not usually give
him a clear shot at the Lasket, but
by tho time tbe third or fourth man
receives it invariably that man is unchecked and ns'iliing is to hinder him
from scoring, if he Is a good shot.
Dribbling the ball is a feature of the
game which has been largely cut out.
because of tho rough' play, but some-
times when a pet son gets the ball
everyone of his team is .becked und
he cannot pass, then a dribble is necessary in order to give the men a
chance to get uncovered. The man
who is going to dribble very much in
tho game shou'd always try to stop
the t.nll with one hand, then if you
dribble you are at liberty to catch
it wilh Icrih hinds and pass, so aa
not  to violate rule 11,  section 18.
The next good point in the gnnio
is that of quick passing iu from out
of touch. When ti'nn is lost by tho
players it slows the game down, nnd
makes it uninteresting. Another
thing, if you are quick in getting the
ball in, and yonr men are spiick to
receive the ball frs.ui you, you very
oftsn can get. in a position unchecked, and thus have a clear try for a
coal. If *.hc ball i8 Batted out of
touch by vim, do roi struggle fnr the
ball when you know it i-hmilil not bo
yours, drnp it at once, an.l leave it
fnr your opponent and get into your
own position. Bo clean und manly,
and help your officials in carrying out
the spirit of the .game.
My next suggestion would be that
vs.1. ci.) not practice shooting while
Standing still, but practice moving
about the floor and shooting tho
breast shot, that is. both hands
holding the bnll about level with the
breast! jumping squarely from both
feet, throwing the ball high and
dropping it clearly into the basket.
I)o not dcpcnsl on the enrrom or ro
bound shot from Ihe wall or screen.
Inr when you piny on your opponent's territory you will not bs
acquainted with these, nnd thus
you will be unuble to shoot, but
practice throwing the ball high, and
getting it into the basket Independent of the surrounding walls or
Now, in closing, there are Just two
things that I would strongly urge
upon all who piny the game nnd Intend to play for some timo and aro
anxious to bo good players. First,
always remember that it is thc man
(tho si'ch defeat staring hlin In tho
face who becomes rough and ungen-
tlemnnly, and begins to play "dirty"
ball, lio not ever relinquish ths
game until time is up, no matter
what tb«). sesire is. and always play
the snmo ch an game whether you win
or lose. If you lose people will praise
you for your manner ol playing, and
in ynu/ own self you will feel that
your game was cb'iin If you wiri you
will  rcnli/o that you- have won hon-
Tbo last point Is thnt of assisting
the oiliclals Do not try to do anything but what Is right. Ds straight
If you bat Um ball out of touch do
m.t try to get it, leave It for your
opponent, If you run with the ball
do nol protest the olllcsra' decision,
but pass the bnll Immediately to the
captain <>f the opposing learn,     so
that hu may tokc his freo throw. lio
not ever addrtM an official unless yssu

old „d.igo which says, "Htty nothing

This has been an active week in
the speculative wheat markets, of
America. Nevertheless in spite ol"
the activity there has beeu very little change in values from a week ago.
lhe market seems to be chieflyindu-,
enced by the changes of weather over
the Western States.
Recently and ut the present time
the winter wheat crop in the Slates
bus been in procesi. of hurvestiug un-
dei unfavorable circumstances owing
to abnormally wet weather and a
good deal of the early harvested
wheat is of poor quality B.ud condition. At the same time feed grain is
scarce and dear so that it gocs-with-

India is is about the same predicament as to lhe prospect for the coming season's wheat crop. Argentina
may have a much larger crop next

have considerably increased in recent times, so that taking the situation altogether there seems reason

Lame Back Had This Man a prisoner
'■For a Long Time,  But at   Laat
Ho Found a  Cure Though Given
Up by the Doctors.
Napanee, Ont., .July 14—(Special)
—The doctors told Simon Warner
that they could do nothing for him.
He had tried many medicines and
treatments with no good result.
He was a helpless cripple with lame
back, and for si long time his wife
bud to lift him in and out of bed,
the pain in bis back was so very severe.
In this extremity a friend's advice
saved him. This loan hud .suffered
wills backache himself, but had been
completely cured by Dodd's Kidney
Fills, thus when he heard that Mr.
Warner was so bad he went to his
home and recommended this medicine
to him.
Mr Warner and his goosl wife wen'
at lirst. inclined- to be somewhat
doubtful, but here was tho evidence
that Dodd's Kidney Fills do cure
Lame Hack right before their very
eyes in the person of the man who,
hud been .cured. Surely R must be
true. '.. '
So aRer some deliberation they
decided to try, and now they are
very much pleased that they did so,
for in a- short time Mr. Warner's
bnckiuhs' hat) ^.vanished. He grew
gradually stronger and better and nt
iiresenl enjoys the best all-round
good health he has had for many
There is not a trace of Inme bnck
remaining, not c single symptom,
and the helpless man who used to be
a burden to himself and his wife is
now strong and a comfort to his
faithful helpmate,   He says :
"We have used in all about twenty-
five boxes of Dodd's Kidney Fills,
and given some awny to our neighbors. 1 linsl that when they use a
box they themselves are about as
strong in their recommendations as
we arc.
"I can certainly highly recommend
•Dodd'a Kidney Fills as a sure cure
for Lame Hack, for they cured ine,
and T never heard of a worse case."
