TWICE-A-^EEK
Sale of Winnipeg
Court Jlas Ordered the Mine to Be Sold
on January 28th.
Nearly Four Miles of Lineal (Work Has Been Accomplished in the Granby Mines—Mining Notes
From Nearby Camps.
The Winnipeg mine, a few weekB
ago, was found to be in financial
straits, the Bank of Montreal insisting on the payment of a .little', note
for some 83000 or more, with interest, etc This resulted in the immediate closing down of the toi$>-
erty, and the quick filing of mechanics and other liens for something
over $4000. These matters all came
up in court at Greenwood last week,
and"as no defense was put in judgment was give*^ with costs, the
mechanics lienj. to be, of course,
preferred. Last week Judge Leamy,
of the county court, made an order
appointing Richard Plewman to see
that the Jsale was carried out, the
date of the same to be Thunjd»y,
January 28th, at' the court house,
Greenwood.
*   *   *
Work oni the Minnie mine, in
Summit,' is progressing steadily,
with gratifying results. The main
slmft is down a depth.of 60 feet, and
a crosscut at the bottom of the shaft
encountered a large body of ore,
With a month's more work this
property will bo in a position to
ship. The Minnie is owned by ..Dr.
Averill, of this city.
* *   *
Ten cars of ore daily have been
sent out from tne Emma mine for
some time.
* *   *
I
Several men have been laid off at
the Senator claim, whioh waB recently bonded by the Granby Consolidated, owing, it, is said, to the
fact that there is ore enough in sight
to make steady shipments possible
for some ,^ime to come, thus making it unnecessary to havo dxtra men
engaged in stripping new oro bodies.
From' pVes'erii appearances this property looks like another large quarrying proposition, with plenty of tonnage in sight.
•   '■ ■'*■.'. *   *   *
As the Granby mines comprise
thfrlirgest mining proposition in the
Boutt'da'ry,' as well, perhaps, as in
the'entire province, some details in
regard tp the amount of work done
in lineal feet will bu found interesting. The Phoenix Pioneer has compiled the following table, from which
it will be noticed that in the last
three years the total amount of
work done in sinking, raising, drifting andcj'OBScutting has more than
doubieff, there being now 20,818 feet
of development; or nearly four miles
of lineal work accomplished in these
great mintjs. Those figures, of course,
do hot take into account any of (he
work theft has been done in the im
mense ore qurries, nor indeed in the
scarcely Jess great stopes in the wv
dergroUnd workings of the mines, in
both of which thc ore has been
literally taken out in acre blocks.'

dence camp, which is being developed by the Chicago-British Columbia Mining company, in charge of
H. H. Shallenberger. This ore was
found at a depth of 30 feet in the
new shaft, the ore growing more
solid and of better grade. If it
keeps on improving, this property
will soon rank among the best mines
of the camp. Ten tenders were put
in last week for sinking 100 feet,
and have been transmitted to the
head office in Chicago.
Nearly all of the 4800 feet of steel
required for the completion of the
Brooklyn and Stemwinder spurs
has been laid. This work will be
finished in a few days.

toria and New Westminster, the
,thr**o chief cities of the province.
Hill had been. working slowly but
surely towards this end for a decade,
and now he bas carried out p!afe*r
conceived a long while back. All
that now awaits finishing is the provincial government bridge over the
Fraser at New Westminster. Until
that happens in the spring, ferry
cars "must be used across the river.
.It is given out mi high authority
that the branch just opened between
Vancouver and New Westminster is
the first link in a line to the north
by means of which the Hill system
will get connection with the Grand
Trunk Pacific. If the Klondike
then offers sufficient inducements
the cross-country road will be carried
to the Yukon, and there will be an
American system stretching from
New York, through St. Paul and
Spokane, to the United States possession of Alaska.
It is claimed that a line to the
north would tap a country not alone
valuable for its lumber and minerals,
but possessing arable land sufficient
to provide for all the people who
rushed into the Candian nortwest
last year.
A route for a proposed extension
of the Great Northern from Republic, down the San Poil to the Columbia, and following the latter stream
to a connection with the main line
at Wenatehee, iB shown in thc current issue of the Great Northern
publication, "Opportunity," sayB
the Spokesman-Review, The map
is an old one. It is printed in the
publication without comment, but
its appearance in an official organ of
the road is exciting much interest
A peculiarly interesting feature is
that from the mouth of the San Poil
to the mouth of the Methow river
the proposed Hill route is identical
with that proposed for the Belling-
ham Bay & Eastern extension to
Spokane. Whether the publication
of the old map in "Opportunity" is
made witt. authority remains to be
learned. No snch route is shown in
tho new map issued by the Great
Btruction of the Midway & Vernon
railway. The charter required that
construction Bhould begin before the
end of 1903, at the Vernon end of
thc line, and sufficient, wns done to
comply with the-charti***. It is tho
expectation that when the roat
work is started the charter will have
been en amended that work can. be
carried on from both ends at the
same time. The line is to be about
160 miles in length.
A. A. Frechette has secured a con-
Jract for the delivery of 10,000 ties
to the Great Northern company.
He will cut them on thc property of
of Thomas Gauthier, on the summit of Hardy mountain, and will
bring them down to the valley by
means of a chute. The letting of
the above contract would seem to
indicate that construction work on
thc Phoenix branch, as well as the
smelter gpur, will soon be commenced, as Jim Hill is not in the
habit of buying material years before it is needed.

'KJESDAY,  JANUARY 5, 1904
Quite a number of the ratepayers
are anxious to see a statement of the
city's financial affairs for the year
just closed. The auditors have been
at work on the city books for the
past six weeks, and there is no lea-
' son why the public should not have
their report by this time. It is the
duty of the city officials to see that
the financial statement is prepared
and published at least a week or ten
days prior to election day, in order
to give the ratepayers an idea as to
the manner in which the oity's
finances have been managed during
the past year. As there are just nine
days from now until ' election day,
there is certainly no time to be lost.
There are 75,093 single men
aJnd 35,374 single women in British

year doesn't amount to much in

HAROLD JACKSON, Proprietor
Anecdotal.
Philip it, sent a young- nobleman to
Rome to congratulate Slxtus V. on his
exaltation. Slxtus was dissatisfied at
•o young en ambassador being sent,
and, with his usual frankness, said,
"Does your master want men, that he
sends to me a beardless ambassador?''
"Had my sovereign thought," replied
the haughty Spaniard, "that merit consisted In a.beard, lie would have sent
you a goat."
Charles Kean -and James Wallack
were once playing In the private
theater at Windsor Castle, and the
actors were somewhat chilled by the
lack of hearty applause to which they
were accustomed In public. At the
end* of one act there was a slight sug-.
gestlon of hand-clapping and exceedingly gentle foot-tapping. Wallack,
pricking up his ears, enquired, "What
Is that?" "That, my dear Wallack,"
Kean replied, "Is applause." "Bless
me!" exclaimed Wallack. "I thought
It was somebody shelling peas."
Bishop Potter Is accused of having
given currency to the following anecdote: A Chicagoan had been taken
around Boston all day to observe her
bulwarks, but had failed to exhibit any
of those symptoms of paralysis which
are acceptable to the Bostonian mind.
"Now confess," laid the Bostonian
host, after the burden and heat of the
day. "isn't Boston a. unique town?''
"Unique?" mused the Westerner; "1
believe that word Is derived from two j
Latin words, unus, one, and equus
horse. I. think Boston Is a unique
town,"     l
Walter Dean, ar., oncej hired an artist to paint his portrait, with the stipulation that the picture would not be
accepted and paid for unless tt looked
like himself. When the portrait was
completed It was sent to Mr. Dean,
who did not recognize himself, and
absolutely refused to pay the painter.
The painter sued, and Joe Strong, the
artist, was called ii to give an expert
opinion. "You see the portrait of Mr
Dean?" the lawyer asked. "No," said
Mr. Strong, "I do uot." "There it is,"
said the lawyer, pointing to the big
canvas. "I don't call that a portrait; I
call that a map of Mr, Dean," said Mr.
Strong.    .
"Down In South Carolina," says Congressman Talber.t, "I once attended a
colored church. The preacher, one of
those negroes with an oily face and
big spectacles,' wal talking about the
prophets. He had taken an hour to
discourse upon the major,prophets, and
then he took up the minor ones. In
course of time he reached Hosea. 'My
breddren,' he exclaimed, 'we come now
to Hosea. Let us consider him. Where
shall we put Hosea?' At that moment
an old negro', who had been peacefully
slumbering In one of the back pews,
woke up and looked at the pastor.
'Hosea can take my seat,' he said. Tn
so tired that I am going home.'"
Tho "Evening Post" of New York
narrates that on Washington's birthday a well-known New York caterer
became the possessor of a pair of English soles and Knglish pheasants, anil
invited a couple of friends to dine off
them at the dog show. It was a great
success, but one of the guests, remembering the day, said It .was far from
patriotic. "Why," he added, "here it
Is Washington's birthday and we are
dining on English sole, pheasant and
currant Jelly, eating French bread and'
drinking French wine. Let's have
something American. Why don't yeu
serye some oleomargarine?" "Don't
worry," was the reply, "you've got it."
"Good Words" prints a little sljory of
the early schooldays of Lord Salisbury,
when he was Lord I'.obert Cecil, which
shows how soon In his life his conspicuous disregard* for. dress began.
When he was about seven years old he
came into the nurs»ry one afternoon
on his return from school, which was
held at the old rpclory outside Hatfield, and dumped his books Into a
corner. "Oh, Betty.' he said to his old
nurse, "I wish I vas a oat!" "La,
Lord Robert," Betty replied, "how can
you wish yourself a beast?" "Oh," he
replied, with a sigh, "when I think of
how many times I n ust dress and undress before I die I wish my clothes
grew on my back."
Some years ago a Philadelpnia
preacher Inaugurate* in his Sunday-
school the practice cf having the children quote some S.-rlptural text as
they dropped their pennies Into the
contribution box. Oi. the first Sunday
in question, a tittle ihavtrr walked up
and said: "The Lord loveth a cheerful
giver," and In dropped his penny.
"Charity shall cover a multitude of
sins," and In dropped the next. "It
Is more blessed to give than to receive," quoted the third, and so on.
Just then, up walked a little fellow
with the unmistakable remnants of
molasses candy on bis chubby face,
and, as he dropped his cent, he bawled
out: "A fool and Mr money are soon
parted."  '

A local clergyman was engaged In
conversation with a number of friends
the other day, says the Duluth *?:ews
Tribune," when each started telling
stories of weddings he had performed.
One of the party had this to offer:
Some time ago a great big fellow,
roughly dressed, and a wee mite of a
young woman came to him, They hnd
no witnesses, and. In tart, did not crtre
to have any. Nevertheless a bridesmaid and groomsman were selected
from the household, and the ceremony
began. They had promised to love and
obey and all the rest of the service,
when the preacher announced: "Kiss
Uhe bride."
The groom, on bended knee, hesltatpd
a little, tried to say something anj
couldn't.
"Kiss1 the bride," said the pastor.
"Why, parson, I did, afore I com*
here at all," replied the groom, whoss
face had taken «*■• color ut a June

The Cockade.
THB adoption of | the cockads by
President Roosevelt tor hia coach-
man and footmen has resuscitated the old question : Whose servants are entitled to wear a cockade !
As a matter ot tact, there la no right
nor title to the cockade, but usage has,
In England, where the cockade Is
more common than in any other country, confined It to the servants of the
royal household, of, the diplomatic!
. corps, of officers of the Army and
Navy—Including the militia and volunteers—and to servants of justices
and deputy lieutenants of counties.
According to this uirwrltten law of
custom, neither peers nor other persons of title, except they'he royal, can
confer the cockade on their servants
unless they themselves hold one of tha
commissions already named. And
here comes a strange anomaly: if they
occupy a Government position, they
can wear a cockade, although their
servants cannot.
"Cockade," or; rather, the French
equivalent of It, made Its first appearance In the phrase "ponnet a la co-'
quarde" of Rabelais. About sixty
years after Rabelals'B death, Randle
Cotgrave, author of the first Anglo-
French dictionary,, denned "coquarde,"
now "oocarde," ao "a Spanish cappe
or fashion of bonnet, used by the most
substantial men of yore—also any
bpnnet or cappe worn proudly or
poartly on the side." But the most
plausible origin given of the cockade
of to-day is that it was derived from
the tuft of cock'a plumes worn by the
Croatian soldiers, who ln% the seventeenth century served under France,
and Introduced the cravat to the world
of fashion. At any rate, In 16S8, men
Ambitious to become soldiers of France
received cockades of paper; hence the
expression, "prendrel a cocarde," meaning "to enlist." Cockades, appear to
have fallen Into Innocuous desuetude,
so far as France was concerned, until
the Revolution, when the "cocarde
tricolor" must have become obligatory,
for, Just before the fall of Robespierre,
arrests were, made for not wearing It
The black cockade, now worn In
England, was originntty the distinctive
badge of the House ot Hanover, as the
white cockade was that of the House
of Stuart. It 1» said white waa
adopted by the adherents of the
Stuarts because It was the emblem
of the kings of France, who supported
the Stuarts against the Hanoverians.
The cockade worn by.servants of the
British royal household la a large
half-disk which projects above the hat.
Servants of naval officers wear a disk
not projecting above the hat; those of
army officers and other persona considering themselves., entitled to carry
cockades are fan-shaped, with a button, and they reach above the hat
The cockades of the servants of diplomats are in the colors of the country their masters represent, and many
noble houses on the continent of Bur-
ope make their servants wear cockades matching their livery In color.
When, many yeara Ago, the war as to
whose servants were entitled to a
cockade was raging In England, the
facta discovered were that no orders
regelating their use were known to
er.lst, but It was recorded that servants of ol!lcera of the London City.
I.lu-ht Horse, a volunteer regiment, did
not wear them. The conclusion arrived at was that the cockade was
originally purely a military distinction; that the reason It was worn by
servants of field officers was that* In
former days, these servants had
served In the army, that It was later
adopted by servants who had never
been In the army, and afterward by
servants of naval'officers.
There being no set rule In any country from which we have been tn the
habit of adopting social customs, It
remains for us to follow the law that
usage and good form has laid down.
They have prescribed that the servants of ambassadors and foreign ministers of the United States abroad
shall wear cockades, like the servants
of foreign diplomats accredited to this
country, the cockades of the coachman and footman giving the carriages
a certain right of way. Ambassadors
and ministers are entitled to the cockade after they have retired from thn
diplomatic service. But consuls are
not members of the diplomatic service; they are merely commercial
agents. Neither our consuls abroad
nor consular representatives to this
country have the right to the cockade, as cohauls. Its adoption by an
American citizen who represented a
foreign country as consular agent In
this city was authorised -neither by
usage nor good Uate. That hla family should continue to use It after his
death Is ridiculous vulgarity. Servants of officers of the United States
army and navy, both regular and volunteer, are also i entitled to wear the
cockade.—Town Toplca.
