II. R. Jorand, Slocan's leading barrister, agreeably surprised the burg
Monday, by taking unto himself a
wife, in the person of Miss Maud Edwards. The wedding took place at
5.80 that morning in St. Paul's
church, Rev. Mr. Hedlcy officiating,
and was witnessed by a. number of
the friends of the contracting parties.
The wedding breakfast was partaken
of at the residence of the bride's sister in West Slocan, after which the
happy couple departed on the 7
o'clock boat en route to Sicamous to
spend their honeymoon. Mr. and
Mrs. Jorand will reside in tbe Rob:
ertson cottage, on Arthur street.
Work Started an the Kepublic Mine and
A decided stir bus been caused in
the enmp this week by the commencement of work en tbe Republic
group of mlneB on Erin mountain, to
the east of the town, and the build-
iug of a wagon road thereto. The
latter in particular has caused an influx sf a largo number of strangers.
On Monday a dozen men wero put on
slashing out tho right of way, so as
to give ample scope to the graders.
Actual work of construction will com
msnce next week and be pushed as
rapidly as possible, giving two
months' employment to 30 men. New
lines have been run over the old
road leading into town, so that a 10
per cent grade has been assured, and
cutting out several bad spots nt present existing. Tho red will be
graded 16 feet in width, special attention being paid to the switchbacks.
An innovation in read making in thi**
country will be the introduction of
water tables to ruu off the surface
water, so avoiding washouts. They
have been a success elsewhere and
are expected to be so here. When
complete the road will have cost
$10,000 and will be one of the best in
the country.
At the Republic mine a small force
of men only is employed at present,
straightening np tliimis and getting
the workings into shape for heavy
development later on, when 30 or
m-rn'-a men will be engaged. The
main (-corking on tlie property is a
i'ri fust shaft, sunk on thc Republic
oitAia, aud at, a point which leaves a
deep ravino between it and the camp.
An effort is now being made to trace
the lead down into the ravine, and
when located drifts will bo run on
either side, giving a depth of several
hundred feet. That is where the
principal work will be centred in the
future. New camp buildings will
also be erected, and the advent of
tlie wagon road will set things in full
swing, resulting in immediate shipments. J. Edgar, late shift boss at
the Lc Roi No. 2 mine at Rossland, is
In charge of the work on tho road
and mine, under Ii. C. Campbell-
A personal inspection of thc Re
public property and adjoining pros
pects reveals the fact of bigger things
insight on Erin mountain than the
majority of people are aware of, while
the amount of work done in tracing
nnd opening up the various leads is
astonishing, The wholo hill from
Robinson creek to the lako is serria l
w.th veins, most of them running
north east, but two or tlirco strong
ones strike across and intersect the
others oast and west. Ofa verity the
choicest ground on the liill is that
embraced in tho Republic group of
four claims, the Republic, Bonanza
Bell and American Eagle. On this
ground six parallel lends arc exposed
and one cross vein, and each hns pay
ore showing wherever cut, sufficient
values holding to ship thc entire
paystreak. These veins nre not ran
dorn guesses, but hnve been traced
for hundreds of feet. The main lend
on the Republic claini rcveulan pay
chute 306 feet long and 3 feet wide,
tested to a depth of 62 feet. The
whole chuto will average higher than
?50,so ono may judge from that what
there is to wofk on. A carload shipment from the shaft netted the original owners $85 a ton, and there is
•nsily two carloads of ore lying on
tbe dump.
On the American Fugle claim is a
cross vein of galena, opened up by
three short tunnels. It has an 18-incb
paystrcak, carrying good values.
On the several dumps is another ear
of ore that could be gathered up and
shipped. From another shaft sunk
on a surface exposure ou ono of the
llfll claim leads nu 18 ton -shipment wns made, yielding $90 net a
ton to the owiiwrs, There also much
oro is lying on the dump. Farther
down the hill other openings show
up nn 18 foot vein of dry ere, with a
parallel lead above of galena. Also
on tho Bonanza claim much work has
been done in tracing another strong
lead. In ouch instance the veins arc
easily worked nnd will pay from the
truss roots. Whllo sorting would
give higher values from any one of
tho veins, some satisfactory process
for treating tho ore on the ground
would enable tho whole of tlio ledges
to be utilized, so ensuring an immense niiiouut of vahts'-bearing territory and subsequent large returns.
There are other leads exposed on adjoining claims which must pass into
the Republic ground, affording opportunities for wealth producing unexcelled in the camp. It is the intention of tho management later on
to "run a long tunnel from the lake
side and tap the whole mineral bearing area of their holdings, and go effectually open Up the veins for stoping. Each vein in itself would make
a mine, so it becomes somewhat be
wildering to keep track of and test
them all. The company is spending
much money and they mean big
things for tbe future. They anticipate a payroll and shipments equal
to anything in the camp.
C. A. Hurlburt, president and managing director of the Republic company, is now domiciled here for the
summer, and he will give things his
personal superintendence. He is endowed witli considerable business
acumen and has an intelligent grasp
of the sit. ation of his company's interests.
There is one feature affecting tho
company's operations bere which has
given rise to much angry talk among
the citizens and caused* considerable
annoyance to the men comprising the
syndicate, and that is the persistent
attention of the knocker. Mr.Dcmp-
ster, who was instrumental in bringing the Detroit capital in for the Republic and Sapphire, complained bitterly of the treatment he received
from local parties possessed with an
abnormally developed mania for
grafting and knocking, and be stated
that more thun ono deal had been
spoilt because of it. Not only were a
multitude of letters written him, but
each member of his syndicate received iiis due share. Had it not been
for negative reports sent to Detroit,
the Republic would have been in
-•■peration all winter with a force of
20 men.
These American capitalists have
shown their willingnes to spend their
money. They aro shrewd business
men, nnd pay for what they get nnd
the ruling rate of wages. A man
who would interfere and seek to hinder their operations is doing the camp
and everyone in it, a great harm and
injury. Slocau has had a hard name
for knocking and it should be terminated. Capital should be made welcome1, not affronted, nnd the Isast
people can do is to mind their own
business. Jeatonsy, schcming.graft-
,ing and knocking has dono harm
here as elsewhere, but for thc benefit
of thc community at large nnd the
camp in general, common sense and
justice should bo allowed to prevail
for the future.
Chancea for Big Tlilnga an Thnt Promising Property.
It looks very much as if things
wero to be got into shape at the Kilo
so lhat operations inay be resumed at
an early date. The property is on
the first north fork i-f Lemon creek,
adjoining tho Chapleau, and embraces something like 23 claims. It
is owned bv tho Warner Miller syndicate of New York, and up to a year
or so ago wns worked very extensive
ly. Last year Mr, Spiers, one of the
syndicate, died, and the executor of
the estate has not been dispos d to
incur any moro liabilities ln developing the Kilo and other mineral in
tcrcsts in this country.
Of late thero huvo been numerous
reports abroad relative to the Kilo
resuming operations, as the negotiations for an amalgamation with the
Chapleau had fallen through. N:F.
McNaught, of Silverton, one of the
syndicate of owners, is credited with
making overtures for thc purchase of
n tramway, stamp mill nnd cyanide
plant for the Kilo, which nre to be
installed at nn early date, thus giving an earnest of extensive developments.
Frank Dickinson, who hero represents his brother, Percy Dickinson,
manager of the Warner Miller syndicate, wus asked if there was any
truth in tho report of the Kilo resuming, and he. would not gninsuv Mr.
McNaught's utterances. He had jnst
received a letter from his brother in
New York, in which the brother stated the other interests in the property
were endeavering to secure tlio Spiers
portion. When this was accomplished no doubt the mill and tramway
would bo installed. At any rate,
something was going to be done
shortly on tho Kilo nnd adjoining

tt was presently learned toat Mr.
Pnrdea bad offered to take the services
at »t Nicholas" for a few w*-*ks in ©r-
eer to enable tae curate to attend the
te-dstde of a dflng parent. He undertook this ditty without asking for any
.tse or pay, a fact which greatly tu>
creased his reputation.
A day or two alts* Mr. Purden's ar*
"rival cama a carriage and four containing a vary nee lady indeed, with
bar maid and her man. She drove te
Om Crown, tht people all looking after
her. A largo coat of arms wan embla-
aoned on the door of lier carriage, with
a coronet and supporters. Her man
waa dressed ln a noble livery of pale
grten, with scarlet epaulets. A little
crowd -fathered round the door of tho
Crown while the footman held the door
open end the lady spoke with the landlord, a
"Sir." she said, inclining her head
graciously and smiling npon tbe crowd.
"I havo been directed to ask for thy
good offices in procuring a lodging. I
am a simple person, but a body must
have cleanliness and room to turn
-M.adam," said tbe limdlord, -tbova
Is but one lodging la the town which
ta worthy ot yonr ladyship. I have
myself across the market placo a
which contains three or four
These I would submit to yonr
la-lyshlp's consideration."
This wsa an excellent beginning.
The lady took tbe rooms at tbe rent
.•"reposed and without haggling. Thero
were two bedrooms for herself and her
maid and one room in which she could
sit The man found lodgings elsewhere. It appeared from his state-
Bent that his mistress was none otber
tnaa the Lady Anastasia, widow of
the late Lord Langston and sister of
the living flarl of Selsey. It was therefore quite true, as Sam Semple had an-
attMmced, that persons of quality wero
ostnlng to tbe spa.
The Lady Anastasia at this time wu
abont 26 years of age, a handsome
woman still, though no longer in tho
•rot flush of her beauty. Her dress aa
well as ber manner proclaimed tbe
woman of fashion. I confess tbat aa
a simple sailor, one who could not pre-
•.end to bo a gentleman and had never
beforo seen a woman of rank, mnch
lew conversed with one, I was quite
ready, after she bad honored mo with
a few words of condescension and
bindnsTtes, to become her slave. Sbe
could bear herself with the greatest
dignity and even severity, as certain
ladles discovered wbo presumed upon
her kindness and assumed familiarity.
But while ahe could freeze with a
frown and humiliate with a look, sho
could and did tbe next moment sub-
duo tho most obdurate and disarm the
; resentful with ber gracious smile
with her voice, which was tho
softest tne most musical and tbo most
moving that you can Imagine. She
had been a widow for two years, and,
having now put off tbe weeds, she waa
rejoicing at the freedom which tbo
world allows to yonng widows of fortune and rank.
The mayor bade her welcome to tbe
spa. "Madam," be aaid, "tbls town
until yesterday was but a seaport and
wo ourselves for the most part merchants mid sailors. We are not peoplo
of fashion. Wo do not call onrselvee
courtiers, but you will find ns honest
and we hope tbat yon will believe In
our honesty when we venture, with all
respect to declare ourselves greatly
honored by tbls visit of your ladyship."
"Indeed, worshipful sir and reverend
sir, and yon, gentlemen, I am grateful
for your kind words. I am here only
in the pursuit of health. I want nothing more, believe me, but to drink yonr
sovereign waters, of wblcb my physician speaks most highly, and, when
my health allows me, to attend your
"We hope to offer your ladyship more
than tho pumproom," tho mayor continued. "We have devised in our bumble way rooms for tbe entertainment
of the company with music and gar*
dsns, and we hope to have assemblies
for dancing In tbe town ball Tbey
are not such entertainments as your
ladyship Is accustomed to adorn, but
such as tbey are we shall be deeply

"Sir, I accept your invitation with
great pleasure. These gayeties are Indeed unexpected. 1 look forward, gentlemen, to making tbe acquaintance beforo many days of your ladles as well."
80 she rose nnd dropped a courtesy
while ber man threw open tbe door,
and tbo deputation withdrew.
In the evening the lady came to tho
long room soon after tbe music commenced. Mr. Prappet bowing low, Invited ber to honor the evening by dancing a minuet He presented a gentlemen, the son of a Norfolk squire, who,
with many blushes, being still young,
led out this lady, all jewels, silk, ribbons and patches, and wltb sucb grace
as be conld command performed the
stately dance of the fashionable assembly.
This done, the master of the ceremonies presented another gentleman, and
ber ladyship condescended to a second
dance, after which she retired and sat
down. The first gentleman then danced with another lady. The second gentleman succeeded him, and dance fol
lowed dance.   Mr. Prappet presented
to Lady Anastasia those of tbo ladles ; -The u'<i™ canu> Into his eyi<s.   Hi

pleasantly and graciously. Tbe spa
had found a leader.
The next arrival from London wss
Sir Harry Malyns, a baronet and country -gentleman whose life was wholly
devoted to the pleasures of town.
Those who bad seen the withered old
anatomy carried out of bis carriage
laughed at the thought of tbls ancieut
r»*«on still devoted to the pleasures of
the town. "Nay," said the vnilet, grinning. "But wait till you see him dressed. Wait till he bas passed through
my hands. Yoo think he Is at his last
gasp. Indeed I thought bo myself
when I gave him bis sack posset aud
put blm to bed, but he will recover.
Sir Harry Is not so old but be can still
ixar sonic fatigues."
There was another whose arrival
caused Ho ringing of bells or wi.illations by the horns. This was a certain Colonel" Lanyon, who wore tbe
king's scarlet, having*'served ami received promotion Irt the king's armies..
He drank the hardest be played the
deepest, he swore the loudest nud he
was always ready to take offense. Yet
he was tolerated and even liked, because be was good company. He sang
songs; he told anecdotes; he had seen
service in the West Indies and In many
other places; be lind passed through
many adventures; he assumed, aud
successfully, tbe manner of a good
sportsman, free with his money, who
played deep, paid his debts of honor
at once and expected to be paid In
like manner.
I.ast of all came tbe prince of this
company. Lord Fyllngdale himself.
Sir Harry Malyns being asked If be
knew  bis  lordship, shook   his  head.
"Wc of the gny world," he said, speaking as a young* man, "do not commonly
Include  Lord   Fyllngdale among  the

would please tbe old man, for on

captain modestly, "you will understand, first of all. that I am reminded

child, and are a certain cure for indigestion, sour Btomach, colic, con
stipation, diarrhoea, teething troubles, and thc other minor ailments
of children. There is no other nu*di-
cino acts so speedily, so safely and
so surely and they contain not one
particle of the opiates found in the
so-called "soothing" medicines. Mrs.
It. M. Ness, Barrie, Ont., says : "I
first began using; Baby's Own Tabids when my baby was teething. He
was feverish, sleepless and very
cross, am! suffered from imligs'St inn
After using the Tablets ho began to
get better almost at once anil slept
better and wns "no longer cross. I
think tlie tablets 11 line iii.'tlicine for
children and keep them on hand nil
the time." The Tablets aro readily
taken by all children, and crushed to
a powder can be given to the very
youngest baby with a certainty of
benefit. Sold by all druggists or

properly perform its life^ustaining
runctions, and at the first intimation
that nature gives that all is not well
the blood should be cared for. Purgative medicines will not do this-it
is a tonic that is needed, and Dr
Williams' Pink Pills havo been
proved, tho world over, to surpass
all other medicines in thoir tonic,
strengthening and health-renewing
qualities. From ono end of the land
to the other will be found grateful
people who cheerfully ailcnowledge
that they owe thoir good health to
this great medicine. Among these is
Mr. Elzear Robidoux, a prominent
young man living at St. Jorome,
Quo. He says : "For some years
was a great sufferer from dyspepsia.
My appetite became irregular and
everything I ate felt like a weight on
my stomach. I tried several remedies and was under the care of doctors, but to no -.vail, and I grew
worse as time went on. I became
very weak, grew thin, suffered much
from pains in the Btomach and was
frequently seized with dizziness. One
day a friend told mo of the case of a
young girl who had suffered greatly
from this trouble, but who, through
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
had fully regained her health and
strength, and strongly advised me to
try theso pills. I was so eager to
find a cure that I acted on his advice
and procured a supply. From the
very first, my condition improved and
after using the pills for a couple of
months I was fully restored to
health, after having been a constant
sufferer for four years. It is now
over a year since I used the pills and
in that time I have enjoyed tho best
of health. This I owe to that greatest of all medicines, Dr. Williams'
Pink Tills, ami I shall always have
a good word to say on their behalf.'
Through their action on the^ blood
and nerves, these pills cure such diseases as Rheumatism, Sciatica, St.
Vitus' Dance, Indigestion. Kidney
Trouble, Partial Paralysis, etc. Bo

As an evidence of tbo general pros-
.parity of tho prairie country, the sale
,of C P.R. lands last mbnth wero 28
. times greater than in May, 1901.
Canada's population   is growing
.apace, as the department of immigration figures out that the arrivals for
.-the year ending June 30 will be 65,-
JO00, as against 49,149 last  year.
There Is a large increaco from the
^Unitod States and also a gratifying
J Increase from the British Isles.   The
r entries for free lands in Manitoba and
,-the Northwest Territories are 10,000,
, being 2000 greater than last year.
The Western Federation of Miners
;at their convention in Denver en
^dorsed Socialism  in the following
language: "Resolved.thst we recommend the adoption of the principles
of the Socialist party-platform as outlined in the president's report; and
belt further resolved, that the tenth
.annual convention of the Western
Federation, of Miners does urge the
v,importance of independent political
action, and does advise and recom
mend the adoption of the platform of
, tbe Socialist party of America by tbe
.local unions of the Federation in conjunction with a vigorous policy of
' education along the. Hues of political
, economy."
Statistics gathered by the brotherhood of Railway Trackmen of the
,,-eost of living in Nelson for presentation to the board of arbitration for
-fixing tbe wage seals on the C.P.R.,
reveals a heavy increase over the
--figures of 1897, notwithstanding bet-
jtermeant ef transportation and improved methods ot handling goods.
Almost every line of foodstuffs has
.advanced, particularly meats,   the
increase being over 20 per cent.
> Wages in tbat time have remained
stationary, giving to the working-
man a steadily diminishing chance
\ to lay by a competence for old age.
The tendency, too, is lower wages
and higher prices for food.   Just here
it may stated that prices of foodstuffs
are ton per cent lower in-Slocan than
in Nelson, and the wages for laborers
-are 60 cents a day higher.   Don't
'-forget that.

' hours a day at that, with high rents,
and tbe price of necessaries of life
advanced from 40 to 50 per cent
higher than they have ever been!
It is a burning shame—wc were go*

is no doubt but that this departmen
.tai store and its factories attempts o
set the standard ef wages, and thus
.the skinning process is resorted tr.
Put a man in the Central prison for
six months If he steals some scrip
7 iron from tbe Grand Trunk Hallway,
but lionize und idolize him if he has
the ability to skin his fellowmen out
of a thousand dollars In hard earned
wages.   Let us appeal to our constit-
truents.   Instead or buying through
the  mail order  department of the
Eaton company, patronize the mer-
j chants in vonr own vicinity and keep
1   the cash in your own iicighborhooil.
Thoy can givo you as good bargalrt,
and much better fer that mntter,than
yoa can obtain in this store. And
many so called bargains are not bargains at all. Ths most gullible animal In the world is man, and there
)ft no gullibility equal to that involv
ed in the bargain-hunting humbug.
Then, quit the exhibition of your
gullibility and patronize your own
home stores."
