The Ledge joins his many friends  in wiehing Billy and his bride  and bride many years of happiness.  N. Robinson, a rancher rom the  main river, was in the city yesterday with a load of produce. Mr.  Robinson is not a Socialist, neither  is ho a Tory. These facts can be  ascertained ina few minntcs conversation with the gentleman. He  is a Liberal, otherwise he is a first  class fellow.

When   the   Kuskanook   came   in  sight the serpent seemed to disappear in the direction of Kaslo carrying something in its mouth that  looked   like  an apple tree.

The ��������� Zinn Travestj* Co. played a  week in Sherman's Opera House  to large audiences. To the ar-  tiB ic who find no impurity in an  exhibition of shapely female limbs  beating tho air iu the poetry of  motion tho show was a delight.  To tho prude and tho moral degenerate it was a horrible breach  of female modest}', and some of  them still see tights, billowy lace  and colored lights in their dreams.

Come along, and we will  show you Nelson's greatest home  of-art. '  It is called tho Queen Studio,  and is in that red brick building  built by the famous', John Elliott  on Baker street, just across the  crowded thoroughfare from the  Hudson Bay Co. Allen Lean  has recently taken a lengthy lease  upon the. premises ami reconstructed the building in order that  it will harmonize with', the light  and shade so necessary to tlie le-  quirements of his profession. The  original location of .the Queen  Studio was a little to the.east of  its present home. The Bank of  Commerce butted in there owing  to its choice location as a financial  centre and Lean moved slightly.  west.  The new Queen Studio is the  best arranged photographic establishment in all these -grand old  mountains, and is a dumb monument to the artistic and mechanical taste of the proprietor. No  chaos, of appointments exists, and  all the rooms are separate. The  studio has the most' approved  shades of light obtainable which is  a wonderful aid to the artist when  grasping the shadow ere the subject moves his face.  . -Allan Lean, thecourteouophoto-  g aphic genius who presides over  the destiny of the Queen Studio is  known by his work all over the  west, and his order hook- shows  scores"'of customers'- between-the  land of hard wheat and the cities  that nestle where the bine Pacific  finds its Waterloo.  Besides the higher'branches of  his art Mr. L'kmi does picture  framing, and has just received a  new stock of moulding for that  purpose. Tn addition to everything already said Mr. Lean is so  genial in his temperament that  everybody who sits before his camera invariably looks pleasant. He  invites the world to pay him a  visit, and if you fail to have your  photo taken in the Queen Studio  you may never know how really  handsome you arc.  following friftB the Kaslo Kooten*  aine is(interesting.  "F. R; Posp, of Detroit, earae  down from Sandon" yesterday,  where he has been, looking oyer  the Ivanhoe. He is president of  the Minnesota Silver Co., which  owns the group, consisting of 26  claims. Asked by a Kootenai ue  representative if there were prospects of resuming operations at  that noted property, he replied:  "No,   we   are   not   going to d'<  anything at present.  I may tellyon  though, that I came up here with  the  intention  of  starting up the  Ivanhoe,  on account of the eon-,  tinued "high  price  for silver and  lead,   but   I did not like the attitude predominant in labor circles  at Sandon.    There has got to be a  change of feeling  before much in  the   mining   line   will be done up  there.     We-intend putting 75 or  80 men to work,   but on account  of   certain   conditions   from   the  cause ��������� mentioned,   have   decided  otherwise.      I   am leaving for Detroit tomorrow,  and expect to return again to Sandon next Juno.  If  a . change of   feeling in labor  circles,  for a better understanding  with mine managers takes place  before then,   there will be something atythe Ivanhoe;-if not, the  mine will remain closed."

Ted Mueller, manager of tlie  Crescent Fraction, returned thin  week from a it wo months visit to  Ciiicago. Ho expects his associates  to shortly visit the mine.  . Very rich ore is being taken out  of the Mavis at a depth of 40 feet.  The ore carries considerable free  ^old as well as being rich in silver.

Ostby   and   his   partner  have six  men working at the California   which they    have   under  lease.     The   property   is looking  well,   and the lessees have several  carloads   of  ore in   sight.    They  shipped one car to Trail and two  more  to   Nelson   within the past  few . weeks.      Ostby returned to  New   Denver on Monday   with a  83,000 cheque in his pocket.    In  addition  to his   other prosperity  bis wife   recently   presented him  with a fine boy, the first addition  to his family in twelve years.    All  of which shows that all good things  come to him  who waits, even in  New Denver.  New Denver was excited Sunday  evening. A lire broke out in the  postoftice, a building directly  across the street from tho old home  of Tue Ledge, about eight o'clock.  The mails aud postal records were  saved.

The Ivanhoe  Near Sandon theIvanhoemine  has been shut down for a long  time. Jt was operated extcnsivi ly  at one time under tho management  of Phil Hickcy, aud a string of  miuers were always going up or  down the hill from tho Ivannoe.  In fact it was a common saying  around Saudon that the miner who  worked three shifts in the Ivanhoe  was an old-timer In tho mine.  The  In the Slocan  ,Wm. Matheson has secured a  lease on the Sunset near the Wellington mine.  The Lorna Doone and Hewitt mines have put on large forces  of men. Both mines will be steady  shippers.  They are still getting rich ore at  the Whitewater and (Deep mines.  A big streak of fine ore was encountered in No! 7 this week.  '"  Kaslo has sent five boxes of locally grown apples and pears to the  Colonial exhibition which will be  held in London-iu-the-smoke in  December.  Work at tho Arlington is progressing favorably., and the force  is to be increased as soon as notice  is received from the smelter (upon  the settling of the Fernie strike)  that the ore can be hauled.  It is reported that J. T. Kelly  has bought the Hotel.Bruuswick  property in Three Forks from Mr.  Mullen. We didn't learn the  price paid, but it must be considerable as the Brunswick property is  situated in tho heart of the business district.  The Standard mine, under the  management of George Aylard, is  making extensive improvements  for the winter's work. New bunk-  houses, ore sheda, bins and offices,  etc , are being built, and when all  the improvements now under con-  >truction are completed, there will  be a little city at the Standard.  J. J. Campbell, of the Nelson  smelter, acting also, it is understood, for P. S. Couldrey, of Le  Roi No.-2, Rosslandf, and R. Es-  linger of kfpokane, owning a controlling interest in the Hewitt, has  bought a half interest in the Lorria  Doone and three other properties  on Slocan lake, adjoining the Hewitt and Vancouver group, lately  acquired by Couldrey.  Work was begun on the Silver  Key, situated "ou Dayton* creek,  this week. Messrs. Bonclum,  Teeter and Skinner have leased  and bonded tho property. From  former workings, ore has been left  hanging along the walls of the tunnel for about 30 feet. This will be  knocked down and shipped immediately. If returns are satisfactory, development work will  then proceed. The Silver Key is  tho- ght to bo a continuation of the  well known Dayton ledge, and is  >uly about three miles from Slocan  City.  Cupid   has   beon.   particularly  usy of lato at the Filbert Hotel.  Say, girls, if you want to get off,  Work was resumed at the Cari-  boo mine in Camp McKinney this  week.     For some time a Phoenix  syndicate has been negotiating for  the control of the mine, and it is  evident that they have been successful,    for   men were sent  up  Tuesday to start work on the property.     W.  Rowe, superintendent  of   the    Skylark   will also have  charge of the development at tbe  Cariboo,   with  W. George as foreman.     Tho Cariboo has been idle  for about four years, but previous  to  closing it had paid  dividends  amounting to nearly half a raillon  dollars.     There is no reason why  it should not agaiu be placed on a  dividend  paying basis.    It is said  there is sufficient low grade > ore  blocked" "out  to  keep a 20-stamp  mill running for a year;   It will  take two or three months to pump  out the water to the*400 level, but  ore will be mined and treated after ���������  the pumps have been running for  a few days.

H.   Thruston,    and   have   taken  charge of development work.    Mr.  Thruston    purchased   the  Carmi  seven or   eight years ago from J.  C.  D.ile,  Ja,mes aud R. D. Kerr,  the original owners, and has done  considerable   development   work,  with occasional shipments.    Machinery for treating the ore, consisting of a stampmill and cyanid  plaut,   has lately been installed.  The work done on the property under   the   late   management was:  No. 1 shaft sunk to a depth of 183  feet, and a drift 100 feet at the 100  level, 120 feet at the 100 level, and  50 feet of stoping from the 60 foot  level.     No. 2 shaft sunk 05 feet  and No. 3, 100 feet.     A tunnel has  been  run So feet.    In all 8S5 tons  of ore were shipped to the Greenwood smelter,  netting 82G to the  ton.    Since the   stamp mill and  cyaui Ie   plant   was   installed the  lower grade ore on the dump has  been treated at a profit, the cost of  treatment being about 85 per ton,  saving from 05 to 92 per cent of  the values in the ore.   It is probable that the new owners will carry  on continuous development. Under  the management of Mr. Thrutton,  work at tho mine was of a spasmodic   character,    with    a   fow  eral of all Canada, including the  Boundary, has informed R. T.

In a financial sense Lowery has not,been  wise in his method of conducting  monthly Journals.

At Sault Ste Marie a  Baptist preacher ��������� stopped in the  middle, of his sermon and came  down in the aisle to thrash a  deacon, while the women screamed  and tho choir played "Suffer  Little Children." The deacon  would not take water and the bout  ended in a draw. A service of  that kind may draw a crowd; but  it is out of harmony with the clerical profession.  Parliament in Eugland is being  besieged by the two churches in  that country to pass a law that will  force denominational religious  teaching upon th_ children in the  schools. Judging from the vast  amount of dishonesty displayed in  social business and political circles  in Canada it might be better to  teach nothing but religion in the  schools of, this country.

The incidents just depicted are  but a few of the outrages and indignities heaped upon women by  the army of Russia.

Why Socialism Grows  Alfred Henry Lewis in Saturday  Evening Post:    In 1871 the total  Socialist   vote   of the world was  101,000;  in 1891 it was 1,79!),0G0;  in   1897   it was . 3,890,002 and in  1903 it was 0,285,37-1.    What promotes this augmentation ?   Trusts,  monopolies, hog-financo that fatten  the few, does not, leave the lean,  starved many    a   destiny   worth  working out;' factories devouring  children with their cannibal child-  lab:������r;   railroads dismissing their  employes at the age of forty*���������these  arc tho sources of socialism.  'Mankind   ground between   the millstones) of hand-to-mouth in middle  life, and an old age shadowed by  Our artisans are naturally  alarmed by tbe threatened importation of Chinese and Hindoo  labor into British Columbia when  it would probably travel further.  Tho Chinaman and the Hindoo  you may exclude, for a time at  least; though it will not be easy to  enforce exclusion if British Columbia is in sore need of the labor.  But nothing can exclude the influence, of Chinese and Hindoo production on., the gereral market.  That danger can be averted on ly  by tho maintenance in our own  labor field of peace with justice, po  that our, production may be regii;-  lar, reliable and free from the  enormous fines, as they practically  are, imposed on it by long strikes.  It would boa considerable, step towards this if the unions would at  once banish social antagonism such  as points to a war of classes, and  give their attention to their industrial rights and interests alone.  The danger into which unioni. m  has a tendency to run is that of  entanglement with socialism, with  which, whether socialism is right  or wrong, practicable or impracticable unionism proper has nothing  to do.      J   What Labor Does  Labor sows, but otners reap. ���������  Labor   creates   capital   but has  done.  Labor builds palaces,  but lives  in hovels.  Labor garners the grain, but eats  the   chaff.  Labor weaves   line   vestments,  but is clothed in rags.  Labor has the ballot but doesn't  know  how  to  use it.  Labor manufactures pianos and  plays the Jew's  harp.  Labor  builds palace trains and  automobiles,   but walks.  Labor    elects    representatives,  but has no representation.  Labor manufactures guns and  is shot down with them  Labor makes books and libraiies,  but reads penny newspapers.  Labor builds labor-saving machines, but labors harder than ever.  Labor builds schools and universities, but remains in ignorance.  Labir digs coal from the bowels  of the earth, but shivers with the  cold.  Labor builds streets and public  highways, but is not allowed free  assemblage upon them.  Labor digs diamonds and precious metals from the earth, but  wears glass beads and brass jewelry.  Labor has brains, ability and  power to remedy and change all  this, but is afraid of its own power.  ���������Ex.  For 40 cents you can get a poun,  can of Crescent baking powder u  Anderson Bros.

Mountains of Iron Ore.  The famous Erzberg iron mountain lies about 90 miles pouth-west  of Vienna in the Austrian duchy  of Styriar It is iu the centre of the  great iron mining region of Austria,  and around it smoke many blast  furnaces, all of them fed by tlie  ore which this mountain supplies,  for the -Ei-burg is a mass of solid  iron ore more than 5,000 feet in  height. ' Tlie ore is extremely rich  and yields from. 35 to 40 per cent,  of pure iron.  There' are a few similar masses  of   iron   ore in the world, but not  many.     Nor the city of Durango  in  Mexico,  is a small mountain of  ore,   and   near  tho   east coast of  Queensland is a small island in this  Duke group that is all iron ore,  and it is estimated that it will yield  a total of 2,225,00fi tons.  ��������� Miners are cutting the ore out of  the   Ei _berg  at the rate of 5,G00,-  000 pounds a year, and it is estimated that at tin's rate it will take  them 1,000 years longer to dig the  mountain entirely away.     If this  estimate is correct there still remain in the Erzberg 3,000,000 tons  of ore. In Lapland, along tbe  lino- of the Arctic railroad, between Gellivare and the Atlantic  railwa}', is another mountain of  iron ore, but it is smaller than the  Erzburg, which is the largest solid  mass'of ore rising in the form of a  mountain that has yet been discovered.  For centuries more or less mining has been carried on along this  mountain   slope,   but   it   is ouly  within fifty or sixty years that the  work has been regularly prosecuted  o_"a large scale.     From 2,000 to  3,000 miners dig these terraces on  the mountainside during the summer mouths, but for three months  iu the winter work in tbe. open a:r  is entirely suspended, as the winds  and snowstorms   make tliij  labor  too eovere  and expensive, but the  work still  goes  ou   in the winter'  for about  1,000  to 1,500 men are  then engaged in underground mining along the sides of the mountain  where they h ive dug deep iuto the  solid ore.  Thus the mountain is being gradually reduced by lowering its height  and by digging into its heart,,and  legions of men will keep at the  work till the mountain has been  wiped off the surface of the e-rth  and the vast quantities of iron it  contained have been scattered far  and wide in various forms of manu  facture.  i ____8dri_____B__i__5_____l__fiy_i^  plied that he was too late, as she  had   promised to marry another.

Imagine, she said, a Mormon  wife and husband, on a cool aut-  amnal evening, sitting by their  cozy grate, she with her knitting,  he with a book or a newspaper.  Tho wife looks up affectionately  every little while, thinking-.that  she is lucky to have scoured such a  considerate, home-loving chap for  a mate, when suddenly the man  rises and takes his hat and gloves.

C. Record. Both contain  Jarge quantities of zinc, which,  under present conditions, is not  favorable to active operations, so  the company is not mining just  jnow. Certain      improvements  Jfound advisable, have been made  ,to the concentrating plant, which  }H , stated to be now working  .smoothly and making an average  recovery of 95 per cent of the lead,  ������9 per cent of the silver, and SI  per cent of the zinc content of the  pre treated. During the two  months it had been running when  .the district was visited lately,about  ������900 tons of ore had been put  through the mill. Ore bins have  been built on the water front of  ,the Bosun properly, Slocan lake,  and a gravity tramway to the mine  constructed. This provision for  ^hipping admits of the old dumps  ,of ore being sent to the mill at  Hosebery, for scows carrying four  Railway cars can be quickly loaded  and the ore be thus cheaply conveyed to the mill. These shipping  bins have a total' capacity of about.  400 tons and the cars can be filled  with them iu less than half an  hour. Some development work  was done last summer at the  IJosun,  this consisting of the ex  tension of three acl t tunnels, in  each of which, ore was encountered.  At the Monitor there is plenty ol  ore���������when hist at work in that  mine it was found that there was-  from 0 to 42 in. of solid ore in the  lowest level. It is stated to be  only a question of unfavorable  marketing conditions, or this mine  would be steadily producing today.  It is understood that the owners  of the enterprise mine, situated at  tho head of Ten-Miie creek, in the  Slocan City mining division, contemplate j lining forces with those  of the Iron Horse, an adjoining  property on the north, so that the  two may be worked jointly. Some  of tho directors of the enterprise  (B. C.) Mines. Ltd., are expected  to arrive shortly from England to  look into the sittiatfon.

Chill Slavery  The attention of tho broad-  minded citizen is being claimed  more every day by the advocates  of tho child labor reform. President Roosevelt, in his recent Har-  risburg address, devoted considerable time to it. Ex-President  Cleveland and other prominent  men are giving it their most earnest and careful consideration. The  members of the league whose purpose it is to better the conditions  of the children in laboring communities contend that in many  cases a condition tantamount to  slavery exists, The venerable  chaplain of the United States senate, Dr. Etlward Everett Hale, is  particularly active in the move-  He has written a number of  pointed articles upon the subject,  and is doing very effective work in  th^ cause. Among the press of  thj country perhaps none is doing  more, or indeed as much, as the  Woman's Home Companion.  Each issue contains many articles  and illustrations upon the subject,  and it behooves honest citizens to  give serious thought to this very  important matter.  The above paragraph is from the  Orator-Outburst of Spokane, and  touches upon one of the crying  evils of Canada as well as the  United States. The issue of Low-  ery's Claim last summer that contained one of the strongest articles  against child labor ever published  in Canada was shut out of the  mails. An article .in tho same  issue calling for protection to female children in the streets of good  Toronto was especially condemned  by that polite Frenchman who airs  us Canada's Postmaster-General  and dictates to the extent of his  power what Englieh people shall  read. Things have come to a  pretty class in Canada when laboring men stand idly by and see one  of their best friends struck down  by tho pliant French tool of greedy  corporations, and one of the most  corrupt governments that ever put  its greedy, corrupt and dishonorable  hands upon the resources of a  great   country. The   day will  come when Canada will bweat  blood for having allowed Laurier  and ' his band of greedy political  pirates to exploit and ransack  this broad, fat Dominion for their  own aggrandizement.
