If a man is found guilty of stealing

jury to punish him; but if he is found
guilty of murder the law gets ev. n

Legal murder is tie same as any

An Amateur.
Edwin Mark ham says that one of
his literary iriends started a hennery
last spring on Staten Island. He
didn't know a thing about the business, but he set a couple of hens, and
in good time had two large broods of
chickens. He was very proud ot
them but in a week or two they began to die. Then he called in a
neighbor to look at them and offer
advice. They were skinny birds,
apparently without ambition,
What do you feed them on ? asked
the; neighbor.
Feed! responded the novelist, as
though he did not hear aright Why,
I don't teed them at all. 1 thought
the mother hens had enough milk
for them.

Sibley's Mexican Rats.
Representative Sibley of Pennsylvania, who takes almost as much de
light in possessing fast horses as he
does automobiles, had been troubled
at his home in Pennsylvania with
rats about his granaries. A peddler j
came along one day selling Mexican
rat poison. Mr. Sibley bought a
quantity aid spread it about his grain
houses The rats lived and multiplied.
A year later t!.e peddler came
along again.
Didn't you sell me Rome Mexican
rat jioison ? asked Mr. Sibley.
Yes, sir; the peddler answered.
It's no goo i, Mr. Sibley told him.
It hasn't killed a lat that I know of.
Well, maybe the rats about your
place are not real Mexican rats, was
ihe peddler's reply.
The  London  Mining   Worl i   an
nounces that there has just died at
the age of 63 Sir G.LeNeve  Poster,
tor many years inspector of mines for
Devon and Cornwall.   He had had a
brilliant career at the Itoyal School
of Mines, which he entered in 1857.
He subsequently studied at the Fric-
burg  Mining college,    lie was at
one time connected with the Pesta
rena gold mine of Italy,    When the
Metalliferous Mines Regulation Act
ot 1872 was passed, he was appointed
inspector for the Devon and Cornwall
districts.   His attempts to introduce
improved methods of working were
much opposed, and in 1880 he was
transferred to North Wales.
The warrant under which John
Hunyan was apprehended and placed
in jail at Bedford for six months, dur-
iug the reign of Charles II, was sold
at auction in London recently for the
sum of $1,525. In it thirteen justices
ot the peace, six baronets and seven
baronets charged the tinher with con
tempt of the law, by preaching and
teaching otherwise than "according
to the liturgy or practise ot the
Church ot England.
The convicts in Sing Sing

One might as well look forward

San Francisco.
The name ot San Francisco is associated with yellow perils. San
Francisco is easily one of the seven
cities which in future ages will be
pointed out as the birthplace of Randolph Hearst. Mr. Hearst, or some
orte ot his young men, is always first
in war and first in peace, to say roth
imf-ot circulation. Some believe the
mantle ot Mr. Bryan can be made to
fit Mi". Hearst by being shirred quite
a bit around the waist.
To return to San Francisco,' the
Goldjen Gate is solid gold with radium
hinges.
San Francisco is a beautiful city.
Owing to the nickel being positively
the smallest coin used, it is impossible tor rnything to look like thirty-
seven cents there.
San Francisco was made by C. P.
Huntington,   with only  such assistance as the Almighty could render.
IAir is practically free in San Francisco.
j San Francisco can never be a very
large place, because as soon as a
family get to be worth ten or twenty
billions,* thev move to New York,
where they can see Wagner with the
original specialties—Puck.

Booze in Nelson, Poker in the Silvery Slocan,
Gospel at Bear Lake, Rain in New Denver. It
is free-milling in poetry, and has a large chute
of stories cut from the Cent Belt, when the writer
was doing penance among the tenderfeet in the
East. The miserable effect of reading this
publication is relieved by looking at the pictures
in it on the hanging wall. You can tell Float
anywhere by the Bulldog Oil the FrOllt

owing to the fact that Mulock has not yet shut

MINING FLOAT.
Both steam shovels are now at
work in the Oranby mines.
It is said that there are still irom
four to six feet of snow in Franklin
camp, North Fork of Kettle river.
The total output for the Boundary
mines is now close to 2,000,000 tons,
and this is less than tour years actual
shipping time.
Two hundred and seventy five men
are now employed at the St. Eugene
mine in East Kootenay. The concentrator is running day and night,
and the plant which is used for the
treatment of tailings is giving excellent satisfaction.
The B. C. Copper company has
taken a boi.d on the Roderick
I>hu for $20,OJ0 The claim is near
Ehgt, in Long Lake camp.
Development work on ihe Minnehaha and Hercules claims near Danville, Wash, is in progress. Seventeen men are at work.
It is said that the Combination, a
well known, high «rade claim, near
the Elkhorn, Greenwood, will be
worked before long, it having been
under inspection by several parties
of late.
The old placer camp of Wild Horse
creek is now the scene of active
opera*.ions. Water has been turned
into two ot the big ditches and the
piping has commenced. By the latter prit of this month all the placer
milt.a will be in operation.—Fort
Steele Prospector,
When the 10 ton steel ore curs, 21
j in number, recently purchased by
i lie Granby nines, are plated in use
after c anging the gauge of tracks,
etc. they will be placed in No 2
tunnel. If they are loaded and
dumped once daily, the amount will
equal the norma) tonnage output.
Leadville mines shipped in round
numbers 70,000 tons of ore during
April It was not «nl> a good month
in the matter of shipments, but was
marked by progress along other lines.
The development of the older prop
erties was pushed vigorously and
work was started on a number of
new claims.
The most pleaseJ and thoroughly
self satisfied mining man we have
met lor a long time is Mr Ames, of
the Iowa-Lillotiet Gold Dredging company, operating at Lillooet, says the
Ashcroft Journal. He as reason to
be, for the bU dredge has proven
that it can handle 4 000 cubic yards
of dirt in 24 hours, and he has
dredged and washed enough oi this
dirt to warrant him in the statement
that the gold product will amount to
$1,000 a day. The president of the
company and several of the directors
spent some d »ys watching developments, and so satisfied were they
that they subscribed over $200,000
among themselves to take upanothei
dredging lease and put on dredges.
As was anticipated, the success ot the
Iowa Lillooet dredge has caused considerable activity in the vicinity of
Lillooet and now seventy miles ot
river have been staked and leases
applied tor.

booster, subsidize this daily, and then
"keep your eye on Pasco and watch
Coulee City grow." This camp don't
need boosting. It will boost itself as
soon as there is a sufficient amount of
work done to show the ore bodies, up.
Development work in a mining camp
can't be done with a turnip scuffler.
Give mining'men the size of the ledges
and an average assay across the ledge.
If these are satisfactory, and accurate,
prospects will not go begging for purchasers, neither will prospectors have
to go down in their pockets to hire professional boosters. It must be a straight
game or nothing to make a winning.
Tin-horns never ask for the ceiling.
THIS AM) THAT.
0Rich strikes are reported from a num-
her ol claims during the past week.
This is especfajfy so on Rapid creek,
where ore as rich as any from the
Lucky Jack and Swede ta being taken
out. On Meadow creek some good
assavs returns have been received from
the large ore bodies there, one running
over a hundred dollars in gold to the
ton from a 12-foot lead. Reports from
the Handy, the Swede, the Lucky Jack,
the properties around Gold Hill, and
from every part of the district where
work is being done are very|encouraging
If the business men and others interested in the camp want a real live
boom, The Nugget would suggest that
a syndicate be formed, and a small
stamp-mill purchased and erected. This
could handle the output of the prospects,
charging a reasonable interest for the
money invested, and at the same time
proving the value of the ore bodies and
advertising the camp. Any person
wishing to invest $100 or more in the
syndicate would be sure of a reasonable return for his money. The number of stamps installed would, of
course, depend upon the amount subscribed.
The Intest journalistic aspirant for
public patronage in B. C. is "The
Edenograph," published at Enderby,
in the Spallumcheen district. H. M.
Walker, for a number of years on the
New Denver Ledge, is the editor. The
paper is neat, ably edited and up-to-
date in every respect, but it is really
too bad to handicap such an excellent
publication with a name that would
reach across a Bruce county concession.
However, we wish The Edenograph
the financial success that its excellence
deserves, and hope that the New Eden
is neither Adamless, nor Eveless, nor
serpentless, and that the fig leaves, or
thei modern substitutes, are in use in
Enderby.    Here iss, Harry !
Letters have been received by business men here from a daily newspaper
published in the state of Washington,
offering, for a monthly consideration,
to "boom" this camp. The paper has
been in the "booming" business for a
number of years, and has been successful in keeping investors away from
every camp it   \r.u  touched.    There is'counted;   if all   tricks   are   taken
counts three. There are a number of
terms used in the game which cannot
be explained even by experts with the
cards, such as, ordup, goat Ion*,
maker, marsh, next, gimme best,
bower, here's right, got left, change
soot, etc. Amounts ranging from 5 to
15c. are staked on a game, and even
as high as IOC, is sometimes staked on
a single hand. It is said that in the
East this game is played even by the
ladies. Our best citizens should join
wilh the "fraternity" in an endeavor to
suppress this Eastern graft, the object
of its introduction evidently being to
fleece Western innocents.

Nelson   is   to   have   another   daily
paper—a   Liberal   daily      The   News
has filled  all   the  requirements  of the |
daily   newspaper field  for  the   mining [
distric s  of the interior.    It   furnishes j
news a couple  of days earlier than the
outside  papers.     It   has  become   one}
of the  necessities   among   the   towns i
and   mining camps  in   which il circu- J
lates.    It   has  not   been   aggressively j
partisan, so has as many friends among |
Conservates  as   Liberals.    The field is
not large enough  for  two  dailies, and }
an  opposition   that   would   impair   the
present excellence  of the  News could
not reasonably expect   the  approval or
patronage of the  puplic without giving
a much belter service.    This could not
be done  without  backing  from  some
corporation with designs upon ihe public treasury.    So the case stands: With
two   papers   in    the    field,    the   new
one,   if   honest,   must be  inferior   to
the old; if backed  by   a corporation, it
will be run for the purpose of robbing
the  public   through   the  candidate or
paity which it supports.  In either case,
another daily   paper  would   be  a very
undesirable acquisition to Nelson or the
country of which it is  the  commercial
center.    If   Mr.  Jackson   has   an inspiration—financial    or    otherwise—to
mould  public  opinion, why   not  do it
from Rossland ? There is a good field,
though limited, for a daily paper there.
We are getting in shape to fill
yourotders, let them bo large
or small, they are appreciated
alike. We have had years of
experience liiling orders for
mining companies and prospectors. We endeavor to send
nothing up the hill bur lirst class
goods. Give us a call. We think
we can please >ou. Our prices
are right and goods first-class.
A new gambling game has been introduced in the West, which the police
should look into. Whether it can he
classed among "brace" games, su h as
roulette, black-jack, klondike, craps,
five and forty, etc. it is difficult to say,
but certain it is that the men behind
the check-rack fight shy of it. The
game comes from the East, where all
the schemes to "skin" the unwary appear to have originated. It first appeared in Poplar the past week, and
most of ihe people who indulge in
games of chance have so far kept
out of it. Five cards are dealt and one
turned up, the latter being trump. The
jack of trump is best card, jack of same
color next best, and then ace, king,
etc. The person dealing can discard
and take up trump. Three tricks must
be taken; if not, his opponent counts
two.    II he makes three  tricks, two is
he
