The protracted visit of Charles
Dempster, of Rossland, and H. G.
Van Tuji, of Detroit, to this place
daring the week, means a great deal
to the camp, moro so indeed than
would appear on the surface. Together they represented a powerful
group of Michigan capitalists, who
hnve become (.duelled in the dry ore
.belt iff till* division and are investing
an unlimited quantity of money herein, mainly at the solicitation of Mr.
Dempster. In doing this, Slocnn
will become the headquarters of several new mining companies, whose
respective operations will be wide,
and which collectively will result in
the employment of scores of men and
the expenditure of many thousands
of dollars. In fact, so favorably im
pressed luve the-gentlemen- been
with their inspections of several properties, thnt they enthusiastically
predict success to their c' mpanies
and r.ipi'1 growth tw Sloe, as a city.
Mr. Van Tuyl, whose first visit it was
to Kootenay, was quite captivated
with the scenery around here, classing it as superior to anything he has
seen on the continent. Of the mine
ral resources of the country, he has
seen and heard sullicient for him to
think that he has lit on thc threshold
of nature's richest storehouse.
Of material interest to the city i
the fact that the en**"'ruction of the
wagon road to tha Republic, on Erin
mount:'.in. will bu proceeded wilh at
once. R. C. Campbell Jnh!'sto:i,consulting engineer of the respective
companies, will have charge of the
work. Concurrent with the bum*
menoement of tl.c road, opcj.tiiii'n'*
will be t***nnm**nccd on ti*.« lo-i-iiUic.
New aid c-.umi'diinis buildings *.\ ill
bs' erected, machinery installed, and
20 0* mere men cmpfoyul. Ship
nieiit.' will follow as S'.'n!) us possible
slid ever*, thing d-.ni* to tbor>*ogM.v
exploit and demonstrate the riches ol
that pruniisiho* pf*djpcrty. There are
no less than six different veins <>>*
posed on the ground, each with pa"*
ore in sight, while there is onuugu
mini ral already on the dumps to
inakoa respcctablo shipment. The
Republic has always been regarded
ns ono of the leading properties in
that section of tho camp and it will
undoubtedly give hands une return**,
Mr. Dempster and party inspected
th-* group twice and ilicy realize the
full value of their possession, which
work will rapidly enhance.
Two or three trips were made by
the party to Twelve Mile creek,
where Mr.Dem|sSter'sflSSiiciatishave
Invested heavily. Tliey acquired
Inst fall tin- Champion & Sapphire
group and a companv has been
formed to work it under the nnme of
the Sapphire Gold Mining Co., ltd.
Th.* group has one of the most re
markable surfoce showings nf ore in
the country, the chute having been
stripped foi* close on to .!0J feet. It
is ii dry ore and runs over 100 oz in
silver, with I'uir values in sold. Other
veins have since been proven by inspection to pass through the ground.
In tlie course of a few weeks work
will commence on the Sapphire, and
tho company has instructed Mr.
Johnston to spare ns. expense in development and to employ every hand
the property will stand.
Adjoining tlie Sapphire is the May,
which hns also been secured by Mr.
Dempster. There are three claims
iu tho group and some excellent ore
has been exposed on it. Last winter
tho original owner, J. O'Connor,
shipped five tons taken from a surface drift on the vein and the returns
wero eminently satisfactory. Tlie
lead is ft true fissure and the pay ore
crops to the surface. A couple of
contracts will bo let on the May at
once,approximating 300 feet of work,
which will give ft practical idea of
what treasure lies beneath tho sur
Tho party, while on Twelve 51 Uo.
ulso paid a visit id the Happy Medium
group, adjoining the Sapphire and
owned by Fred Benson and Win,
llinchlifl'o. The visitors were agreeably surprised at the oro in sight, as
the property is one of which very littlo has boen spoken. The owners
had been quietly developing the property all winter and in that time
sunk a 45 foot shaft on tho vein, besides some drifting. Thev had also
erected a cabin, blacksmith shop and
ore house. Tho shaft is in ore all the
way dowu and there aro several ear-
loads of the high grade article ready
to stope out. The property is one of
tho pleasing surprises of the civek.
lt. with the May and Sapphire, are
nil being surveyed, so as tu have the
title made secure and placed beyond
Thc Slocan-UcpublicCo. has taken
an office on Main street, adjoining A.
York & Oo.'s, and it is being hand
somely fixed up. Here will aiao be
the headquarters of tho Sapphire Co.,
ns well as other subsidiary associations now in contemplation. H.
Dempster will remain here in charge
ofthe office, with Mr, Johnston as
engineer of the mining operations.
Chas. Dempster has removed his
headquarteis hither from Rossland
and will in future operate sniely from
here. Mr. Dempster and associates
have acquired three other properties
here una inside of another 90 dajs
three more will be secured. These
latter are now under consideration,
but it is not expedient just yet to say
anything moro about any one ofthe
six. Mr. Dempster lias gono back
to Detroit and New York and will return hero in Julv, by which time all
his plans will have matured and his
several undertakings be in mil
The men interested in these various
schemes arc men of probity, petition
aud wealth, and are among thb best
and leading financiers of Michigan.
They arc paying cash for everything and so far, ai least, have lived
up to their statements. That they
moan well by the camp is certain,
and they aver Slocan will be made
one of the foremost towns in the country. As a hint to the future, it is not
teo much te hope for the erection of a
smeller here. The money is readv
and all that is required is development ofthe properties owned by u_
syndicate. With the success of one
undertaking will come others, so thc
outlook is encouraging for the town
and camp.

Sir,—I noto "Canadian Answered"
by J. A. Foley. I cmnot see any
reason to mako nn extended reply,as
the spirit in which I am interrogated
is quito in lino with the facts I asserted--facts that uro tolfevidcnt
and require no further proof. I agree
with Mr Foley that, patriotism consists iu loyalty to home and country;
and further, in being on the alert tu
guard ngoiiibt all visions and invidious intrusion of elements that mav
menace or disturb thc social, ccono*
miu, or political conditions under
which wo are working out our own
destiny, which may safely be loft in
the hands of our own people and our
old established and recognized parties and system of government And
1 bog to say to Mr. Foley, with all
candor, that any persons or parties
suggesting or promoting any ;ido issues that may divert from the general welfare to tho class or personal
interest only, are the real "psetido
Canadians."   Yours,        Canadian*.

Mark Manley returned from a winter's sojourn iu l$»ston and Now York
on Friday. Questioned ns to his
views on thc recent decision of the
supreme court at Ottawa on tho Nn
tive Silver fraction, lie stated it wns
not to his liking, and that he purposed appealing tho ease nt once to
the privy council in England. It is
the highest court in the Empire and
its decision will bo final.
Hearing a Settlement,
Word comes in from Spokane that
the financial troubles ofthe Burlington Mining Co., owning thc Iron
Horse, Ten Mile, are approaching a
settlement, and that the property
will be working again by July. The
situation at thc Iron Horse is said to
bo a disagreement between tho Spo-
kaneand Pittsburg members of the
corporation oyer a question of management and finance. This has been
overcome, the debts are to be paid
and development of the mine continue.	
Blevcinent to Psiah Organization lo lSaeh
A manifesto to thc electors of the

Provincial      ..-rcssivc Pa-ty ?
Scuiid. If so, wul your organi-
*•..■'*'- ••■ ;ake steps to immediately cooperate wilh all other labor and reform bodies, and all individuals in
harmony with your views, to thc end
that a Progressiva Party club bo organized in your community, at the
earliest possible moment.
Third. If go, after thc organization of a Progressive Party club in
your locality, will you uso your utmost inlluenco to induce all Progressive Party clubs in existence in tin-
electoral ridings in which you reside
to co-operate together, and organize
a district association of Progressive
Party clubs.
Fourth. Upon thc express under-
st'inaing that all disbursements will
bo strictly accounted for by tbe secretary-treasurer of the provincial
i xeciitivc of our party, and it being
dourly understood that after the or-

say that we cannot find words to impress upon you too strongly the important and inseparable relation in-
vuriubly existing between political
success and thorough organization,
and tits necessity cf ull our friends in
your community speedily Blinping

Slocnn heard the news of tho general surrender of the Poors in South
Africa along towartl** noon on Monday, nnd iho glad tidings spread
rapidly. A general hustle was made
to Haunt lings and bunting, and pro-
pare to celebrate in right royal man
ncr. Msyor York proclaimed a half
holiday, requested the suspension of
all business, nnd then ordered the
School to closo. The hat wns passed
around nnd in a short time a large
amount of money was raised, and
a programme of sports arranged, A
general hurrah resulted and tho band
assisted in tho jubilee. Tlio s-M'ts
were held on Main street nnd wore
carried through with zest, despite an
interruption from the rnir.. Almost
every youngster won n prize and
later on all got in on a scramble for
mils and fruit. As n windup to the
celebration a huge bonfire was nr
rangod on the drugstore corner nnd
when set Off hearty cheers were raised for tho king, followed by tho
singing of the national anthem. As
fur Shiran's loyalty she has sent n
dozen men to South Africa, and the
celebration Monday intensified that
feeling, the moro so because of thc
spontaneity of the affair.

Tho two banner properties of tho
division have tho shipments between
them again fur the week, the total
being 130 tons, which is a slight increase over tho preceding weeks. Of
this amouiis, the Enterprise sent out
its regular quota of 40 tons, nnd the
romaining 90 tons was from tbe Arlington. The corrected returns from
the letter's shipments to May 31 make
a big increnie In their given total,
which, including the present week's
figures, is swelled to 1870 tons, They
have three cars more ready to go out
today, if the transportation Is available.
For the entire division the total
shipments aro 2474 tons, which is
considerably in excess of tlio figures
for the same period last year. The
outlook for continued shipments is
h!jo much brighter, while the amount,
of new development going on in tho
camp is-largely in cxccs3 of 1901.
For 1900 tho exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made

tbat her guardian was tbe most honest

and that they designed no harm or affright to her, but only to do her honor.
Therefore she was not lu any fear and
smiled graciously. For my own part, 1
followed and stood at the table, thinking that perhaps these fellows were
proposing soine piratical abduction uud
resolving miracles of valor If necessary.
Then they mode offerings. One man
pulled a red silk handkerchief from his
neck uud laid It In ber lap, and another lugged a box of sweetmeats from
tils pocket. *.t came from Lisbon, but
wns made, I believe, in Morocco by tho
Moors. A third had a gold ring on his
linger—everybody knows the cxtrnvn-
gniiclcs of sailors—which he drew off
and placed In her hand. Another offered n glass of punch. The little inn id
did whut she had so often seen the captain do. She looked round ond snld,
"Your good health, all tho company,"
and put ber lips to the glass, which she
then returned. Aud another offered to
dance, and tbe fiddler drew bis bow
across the catgut. It Is a sound which
inclines tbe heart to- beat and the feet
to move whenever a sailor bears It
"I have often seen you dance," said
Molly. "Let the fiddler play, and you
shall see me dance."
I never thought she -wonld have had
so mnch spirit, for, yon see, I had
taught ber to dance the hornpipe. Every boy In a seaport town caa dance
tbe hornpipe. We need to mak* music
out ot a piece of tblu paper laid over a
tortoise shell comb—It must be a comb
of wide teeth, and none of them must
he hroken-and with this Instead of a
fiddle w* would dance In th* garden or
In the parlor. Bnt to stand np before a
wbole company of sailors! Who would
have thought It? Bowever, she Jumped np and on the table performed ber
dance with great seriousness and so
gracefully that they were all enchanted. They stood around, their months
open, a broad grin on every fee*. Tho
women, neglected, huddled together In
a corner and were quite silent
When she had finished, she gathered
up her gifts-thr silk handkerchief—It
came from Calicut—tbe sweetmeats
from Morocco, the gold ring from 1
know not where. "Put me down, If
you please," sbe wid. Bo one of them
gently lifted ber to the ground. "I
thank yon all," ahe courtesled very
prettily. "I wish yon good night and
when yon aet ull again a good voyage." 	
BNDBRS flocked Into
tbe town. At the outset, though tbe pump-
room wu full every
morning and the gardens and th~ long room
In the evening were
well attended, the spa
lacked animation. The mule pleased,
the singers pleased, the colored lamps
dangled In chains between tbe branches
and pleased, yet the company wu dull
Ther* was little noise of conversation
and no mirth or laughter; tbe family
groups were not broken np; the people
looked at each other and walked round
and round hi silence. After tbe first
round or so, wben they had seen all the
dresses, th* girls yawned and wanted
to sit down.
To me It wu amusing only to see the
people ln their fine dresses marching
round and ronnd while tbe music played, trailing their skirts on the floor,
swinging their hoops and handling
their fans; for the lack of young men
talking to tbe clergy from tbe cathedrals and the colleges, and costing at
each otber glances of envy If one was
better dressed or of scorn wben one
was worse dressed tban themselves.
As for the men—"Jack," uid Captain Crowle, "I keep looking about me.
I try the pumproom in the morning,
the ordinary at dinner, tbe taverns
after dinner. My lad, tbere la not one
among tbem all who la fit to be mated
with our Molly. Gentlemen, ore they'i
I Ilk* not tbe manner of these gentlemen. They are mostly young, but
drink hard already. Their faces are
red and swollen at 25. What will tbey
be at "IO? My girl shall marry none of
them, nor shall sbe dance with tbem.
Sbe shall stay at home."
In fact during tbe first week or two
after tbe opening of tbe spa Molly remained at borne and was not seen in
tbe long room or In tbe gardens.
The town was nearly full, many of
th* visitors having to put up with
mean lodgings in tbe crazy old courts,
of which tbere are so many In Lynn,
wben tbe first arrival from London
took place. It was tbat of a clergyman
named Benjamin Purden, Artlum Ma-
glster, formerly of Trinity college,
Cambridge. He was a man of Insignificant presence, bis figure being smsll
and tbln, but finely dressed. Ills bead
was almost bidden by a full ecclesiastical wig. Apparently be waa between
40 and 50 years of age. He looked
about blm and surveyed tbe company
wltb an air of superiority, as If be bad
been a person of rank.
He came to us down tbe river by *
tilt boat from Cambridge and accepted
contentedly quite a humble lodging,
barely furnished with a choir and a
flock bed. "Humility becomes divine,"
be said In a high authoritative voice.
"Tho room will serve. A coal fire and
an ope.i window will remove tbe mustl-
ness." lie was perhaps, though we
must allow a good deal to bis profession, too fond of preaching. He preached Lu tbo morning at tbe pumproom,

It Is queer bow Ironclad Is the bold

medlumly successful admitted candidly uot long ago that at the very last

"On the way to our wedding," said
the woman, "we had the most awful

It Is a rare privilege to be allowed to
peep at the mysteries of an empress' toilet, to ronsack ber wardrolies, witb their
treasures of costly gowns, to open ber
jewel casket and to gloat over gems'that
would purchase inauy a king's ransom,
bat wben tbis empress la the most luxu- .
rious and picturesque woniau of an ex- .
tra vacant age the temptation' Is too
strong to resist, says The Golden Penny.
Sucb an empress  was Josephine,  in
turn tbe spoiled darling and outcast wife
of N'avoleon I., whose star filled tbe social heaven of Europe for five years. Jo- i
sepbiue was more than forty years old
snd had already exhausted all tbe arts of
luxury when she wss crow net! empress in i
ISO!.   Her first beauty had long left her, '
and. It ia said, sbe had practiced tke fatal
ami  fashionable art of enameling until •
the enamel would no longer retain Its
hold on her skin, but cracked and covered 1
her witb a constant layer of white powder.
For ordinary occasions her hairdresser
was a M. Herbeault, "a magnificent creature in an embroidered costume, with a
sword at his side," bat for sny Important
occtifilon M. Duplan, the mots! nmsum-
mate artist. In the world, was called In.
M. Duplas's salary for these occasional
services was 20,000 francs a year, Increased later by Napoleon to 42,000
francs. _ These two unrivaled artists designed 'for Josephine's benefit no less
tban s tbonsaad new methods of hair
drexf-lng, each adapted to the special cir-
euin-tnnccs in which It was worn.
Blitch as Josephine lover her hundreds
ef rosily dresses, she loved her jewelry
snore and wss never happy **d**»s she
was, iisisl'iig -Jr-Msi dally to ber treasures.
Id ii few short mouths sbe spent balf a
million francs on jewels, and her happiest
liui'i'-i at Malroaison were spent in spread
lug out ber thousands of gema on the tabic li.'fore her and gloating over their
dazzling* charms.
IIit extrsvagsnee wss the cause of
ninny tears snd much upbraiding from
Nn|i..ls»on, who grew tired of paying bills,
many of them reaching almost a million
francs, ia.it in the end he usually sue-
cumbed to ber pleading and penitence
ami 'Yniilil say to her: "Come. Josephine!
Conn', my Httle one! Console yourself. I
will make *t nil right." Poor, silly Jc-
lej.liino!   Poor Napoleon!
