Description of Spanish Rule in  the Philippines.  strap is a rope passed through a pulley  in the ceiling. The unfortunate prisoner is hauled up and if he do'es not  confess is let go with a run and is  dashed on the stone floor, and if he is  not fortunately killed is maimed for  life.  Perhaps at this time when puMic  interest is so much centred upon Manilla and the Philippines generally, it  would not be out of place for rao to  describe a few of the incidents of the  Philippines.  The   insurrection   of  189G-7 during  which years I was on the islands, and  what I have to Hay, will not, I nm sure,  tend to heighten the puhlie opinion of  the Spaniards.   How, ver. there arc* exceptions even in Spaniards, and I must  say  that Blanco,   who was governor-  general of the islands at that time,  was one.   It may  also be said to his  ercdit that during his administration  the Phillinpines, generally, made more  advancement than they had ever been  known to do before under .my other of  the previous governors.   Nearly everyone has a  fair conception of butcher  Weyler's character, Blanco's predecessor.   Count Polevieja,  who succeeded  Blanco,     was   a    repetition   of   the  butcher.   The fact of the matter was,  Blanco was  too   fair  minded and  in  some cases strove too much foe educational   advancement    and   reforms  among the natives to suit the Franciscan friars,  who with  the archbishop  of Manilla at their head, opposed such  advancement.     It,   was   not   by   any  means     desirable   to' them   for   the  native to  have   any more enlightenment or education  than he had previous to Blanco's reign  for the natives  would then see through   their flimsy  mockeries for extorting and squeezing  in   every way possible   money   from  them   who   could   barely   afford   the  necessities to keep  body and soul, together, under the guise of religion.  Blanco did not suit tho priests', or  rather monks', idea of what a governor  should be.   So in a  very   mysterious  manner   news   reached   Blanco   from  Madrid  to return  as his successor had  been appointed, namely, Count Polevieja.   But I may add that the Spanish  government did, at least, show some  gratitude and appreciation of his able  administration   by subsequently   appointing him to the governor-generalship of Cuba.  While. Blanco would-give a man n  '  fair trial,   and  if he could  prove   an  alibi, release him.     Polevieja on the  other hand  would condemn upon  evidence thrust upon him.   If a native or  half caste were brought, up before him  suspected of being implicnted directly  or indirectly, in the rebellion, and certain questions,  which if not answered  to the entire satisfaction of Polevieja,  the unfortunate native or  hall" caste  was immediately taken  to the_ torture  chamber where he  was subjected to  the most fearful tortures imaginable,  and the agony thus indicted   was so  great that in most cases  the poor tortured native would cry out and confess  to  things  he had not committed, for  the sake of saving himself temporarily  from further torture.  An instance of pure Spanish brutality will be shown in tho following :  An old man, nearly  GO years of age,  named ambrosio Figaras, who was not  himself connected with  the insurrection, but   had three sons  lighting for  Filipinni Libre, in Aquinaldo's insurgent arm.v, was arrested on a trumped  up charge, the Spanish authorities at  Manilla thinking to obtain some information   from him   as to  his'sons  whereabouts.     His arrest   was   sv/ift  and he was  immediately brought before the acting military, governor of  0',he island.   The governor finding he  could or would not furnish the desired  infoimat.ion was  at once taken  to the  torture chamber, a dark, stone-flagged  dungeon in the walls of the city fortifications.   At first he was subjected to  beating on  the soles of the feet with  . stout rattans, this being an old Chinese  custom,   but used,  by that   so-called  Christian nation Spain.   This mode of  torture   proving   ineffectual,   the   old  fashioned thuni screws were applied,  and   one can readily   conceivs   what  .agony these litt'e instruments of torture can produce.   They were actually  the same   that have   been preserved  since the Inquisition  in  the old Manilla monastry  of St. Augustine.    He,  poor wretch, already   half dead  with  his heathenish treatment but still rpr  solved not   to betray  his sons, whereabouts, is tied onto a seat, a tap placed  over his head and water is permitted  to slowly drop uponhis head. : This is  the worst, torture imaginable, and after  the poor old man had been driven to  the brink of insanity, but btill obdurate, is released and taken to his cell to  recover, the authorities intending to  subject him to fresh tortures, but he  managed to escape by one of the sons  whom he  had suffered- so much for,  bribing the lieutenant in charge.  The final torture, which generally  means confess, is a strap passed around  the victim's body, anil attached to the  Mining Experience.  Experience is a good educator in  mining as well as other branches of  business. The diatribes of former  years against the assessment principle  have almost ceased, and in some states,  notably Washington, the treasury  stock plan is giving way to the assessment idea. While much that has  been urged against the plan of assessing mining stock is so, and while  nothing can be said too condemnatory  of its abuse, yet the fact remains that  no other device hns ever been found to  satisfactorily secure the working of a  mine where unanimity did not prevail among the stockholders. Spokane  mining companies are among the latest to see plainly that assessable stock  is the kind that best insures the development of a mining property, and  while new co,npanicp  in   that section  The  Dominion Is Destined to  the World's Gre'atest Silver Producer.  nre adopting that plan in .incorporating, old companies are reorganizing  and amending their by-laws "So as to  authorize the levy of assessments on  the capital stock of the company from  time to lime, as the business of the  company may require."���������Mining and  Scientific Press.

A BRAVE RESCUE.  R, L, Short and  R.   Hamilton  Save ,thc  Lives of Two Men.  Nakusp, B. C, Aug. 11���������R. L. Short  and Robert Hamilton saved Mr. Gray  and Mr. McKenzie from drowning a  few days since. A crowd of young  people went up to a creek just above  here to spend the day and in the afternoon went in bathing in the lake just  at the mouth ofthe creek.  Mr. McKonzse or Mr. Gray could not  swim and started out to wade, out to a  snag just beyond the "pitch ofi','' thinking it was shal ow enough to wade all  the way. When they waded over the  "pitch oil" they went down. R. L.  Short was about 30 feet off, and being  a good swimmer covered the distance  before tbe two' came up. Win n.' Gru'y  and McKenzie came to the surface,thr-y  had a hold on each other and Short  succeeded in getting a hold on Gray's  hand and slurted for the shore. Tlie  load was too heavy and nil of them  were carried to the bottom. He pulled  them along, however, till he uainc; to  the "pitch off." Then; he.--(Short)  managed to just get on the brink.of il,  still holding to Gray's hand, while  Mckenzie had death grip on G'ay also.  Robt. Hamilton came to'Short's rescue  and they succeeded in getting the two  nearly drowned men on their feet and  helped them ashore. '���������  It was a heroic deed on the part of  R.L.Short, and he deserves great credit  forit. "He is well known throughout the  ���������country as well as in Washington' and  Oregon as a brave lad,of about twenty  years." -; .-".������������������'������������������''���������"     '  Canada will one day be one of the  greatest silver-producing countries in  the world. The mineral wealth of  British Columbia alone is sufficient to  attract the attention of mining men  from every quarter of the (.'lobe. And  the half has not yet been told. When  the mining industry becomes thoroughly active, and the groat silver producing miiws of B. C. nre opened up,  Canada will, if her interests are properly guarded, have the opportunity, of  stepping out among the nations pf the  world as a nation among nations.  But Canada can never hope to be  anvthing more than a heavily indebted  dependency of England, until hor people, and her statesman awalcen to tho  fact-that she was destined to be something creator, and take steps to remove  the impediments that have for years  blocked herprogrcss.  The greatest of these is the principle  that Canada must a;o abroad for helmet allic money, and depend entrety  upon the banks for her mvdinm of exchange���������a paper currency. Canada  probably has the smallest amount of  metallic money in circulation, and the  greatest paper money inflation, of any  country in the civilized world; with  equal resources and liabilities. She is  reported fo have fourteen millions of  ,������old, every dollar of which has the fiat  of some foreign nation stamped, upon.  None of it is Canadian ��������� money ; all of  it, has been borrowed. In addition to  this gold, Canada Ins five millions of  silver money. This is stanined with  the Hat of the - Canadian government,  but every piece of it was coined in the  mints of England, of enormous loss to  Canada. The only medium answering  for money that Canada has in circulation that is of home production arc the  promises to'pay issued by the banks.  There is upwards"of fifty millions of  this mon<*y in circulation, nearly three  times the total amount of all hormetal-  lic money..  Paper currency, because lacking an  intrinsic, metallic value, is not real  money,but only represents such money-  Tt is unimpeachable only in so far as it  can be redeemed by real money. And  yet it is upon this kind of money that  all business in Canada is transacted.  Canada is, and hns always been, a rich  producer of the money metals, gold  and silver.Milhons have'gone from hor  mineral belts to pnrich" foreign countries who have no other interest in  Canada than to make to her annual  loans of her own metals coined into  money at the usual rate of interest.  The logical position for Canada to assume is to reduce the amount of paper  currency in circulation, in which there  is no real value, and replace it with  home minted metal money, that will  go abroad and into the money marts, a  money that would be respected in any  land.  But Canada has no mint,it is argued,  and could not support one. It is true,  sadly true, ihat Canada has not a  mint, but it is folly to say that this  country, so vastly rich in gold and silver, could not keep up a mint. It is  one of !hose colonial ideas that should  be done away with like the excessive  use of paper money. If Canada is ever  to be anything more than what sho is,  she must push ahead and grnsp the op  portunity now presenting itself. She  needs above everything else a mint.  rock of ��������� he latter claims  is of a   free- !  11     I  nulling kind,  and assays of it are being  obtained.       They   believe    they   have  struck it rich, but won't know until they  get returns from   the specimens sent to )  the   assayers.     There is no  doubt but  that   in  time the  Tooyea country  will  contribute its   share  of wealth to   the  coders of   the  world,   but   at   present  writing it costs so much  to get supplies  into   that country   that a man  cannot  afford to work ground that will pay him  less thau $20 a day for his labor.    Up to  the present no such ground   has been  discovered.  Sandon to the  Front' With a  List of Sports and Prizes.  Whitewater Motes.  At prosent Whitewater is one of the  best mining camps in British Columbia as is evidenced b} the number of  men who arrive daily and succeed in  getting work in the vicinity. About  100 men are employed at the Whitewater mine, 40 'by the Whitewater  Deep, 20 at the Northern Belle, and 12  by-the Charleston. The wages paid  nre scarcely to be excelled in any part  of the.world, Klondyke excepted, being  S3 to ������3.50 per day in all the mines.  The location of the town is not just  what one would desire on account of  the dried trunks of fallen timber and  the stumps which are around ' and  within the town, rendering it more or  less in danger of fire in'such a season  of heat as the present.  There arc no.v two general stores  each of which is doing a splendid business ; and the hotels, of which the  Whitewater is the principal, under the  proprietorship of Mr. Martin, are always crowded.  The splendid  new building on  Avenue C is being fitted up  in  two divis.  ions, one as a drug store by  J. S. Pat-  l������raon of Kuskonook and the other by  the general store man, J. J. Ullman.  Pleased   With   Sandon.  As the citizens of Sstndon"allowed the  24th of May and 1st of July to go by default out of deference to the wishes and  enterprise of the townspeople of other  places, thoy expect the residents of the  surrounding hills for a radius of 100  miles to join them on the 5th to give  vim and /.est to Labor Day. On the  previous holidays of the year our town  became depopulated���������everyone . going  abroad to exhibit his" loyalty where loyalty was observed. Under tho circumstances, now that we are the iir������t, and  doubtless the only people in tho country  about, to lay hands on Labor Day, wo  expect the community around to join us  in making the hills resound with the war  whoopt, of joy.  A very large purse has been put together and, bills are being printed ior  general distribution, announcing the  full programme, which will simply bo  most exhaustive., There will be a wide  scope far everyone so that any man,  woman or child who can distinguish  himself, herself or itself in any channel  will have open opportunity to load  themselves down with prize money. As  none of our citizens are experts in any  line, the wider will be the field tor visitors. Complete arrangements will be  made with the railways for low rates,  and a full day at the sports. Hunt up  the bills ; remember the 5th of .September, and bear in mind.that our streets  assay in minerals as high a3 some of the  mines that are being worked in different  parts of the country.      iinm  _  .

Mr. Roberts  states that much of the'crude ore of  the Silver Bell runs higher tlrin the  concentrates of many other Slocan  properties more often spoken of.

A   correspondent'   from   Milbrook,  Ont., writes us   enquiring   about the  Sandon   Mining &, Milling  Co.,  Limited,  anel the Mother Lode Mining &  Milling Co., Limited.   We can find no  trace of the latter and conclude that it  must belong  to  Rossland, Revelstoke  or some other camp.   The former wa*  incorporated  by   A. D. Williams and  kindred spirits.   We believe ?t did  at  'one time hold some good propprty, but  as  the law relating  to suoh  matters  was  never complied  with the whole  business has fallen through; and shareholders  will lose all they put into it.  The laws of   the  country are not encouraging straw ventures, but they are  unable   to  fully suppress  them.

Coulson, the manager of the Bank  of Toronto, and W. G. Smith, manager  ofthe Bank of Ontario, accompanied  by Mrs. Coulson, Frank and Harry  Coulson, have been in the city seme  days looking over the mining field.  They speak very highlj of it.  One of the future bonanzas of the.  Slocan country is the Silver Bell, located about four miles from McGuigan  station on the Kaslo & Slocan railway.  Surrounded by such rich and well-  known properties as the Rainbow, Cariboo, Surprise, Antoine, Red Fox etc.,  it is not surprising that the Silver Bell  should be prsving to be even more  than its owners anticipated as development continues..  L. S. Roberts, of Spokane, ono of the  owners of this high grade galena producers, returned the oti.er dny from a  visit of inspection to the property and  expresses himself as more than satis-  lied with the appearance of the mine.  There is a good-sized force of men at  work under Foreman Mike Sweeney,  working double shifts, and every day's  work blocks out moro and better ore  bodies. A tunnel was run to crosscut  the ledge, which was reached at a distance* from the portal of about 140  feet. The drifting was done on the ore  body each way for some forty feet.  The result of this work hns been most  satisfactory to the owners, so much so  in fact that the force of men '.at work  will be largely increased at an early  date, and the development of ore  blocking pushed as fast as possible to  further demonstrate values and quantities.'  The Silver Bell group, comprising  about 75 acres of ground, is owned by  the Native Silver Bell Mining Company, composed largely of Spokane  men, including F. Lewis Clark,Charles  Sweenev, W. B. Roberts, L. S. Roberts  and others. It is a close corporation  and but little is heard of its stock in  the market, as the gentlemen inter-.  e:.ted are well known to be amply able  to do whatever development may be  neccss������ry to put the mine on a paying-  basis. There are several strong leads  on the property and the grade   of   the  The annual meeting of the Sandon  Club was held in the club rooms on  the Sth inst. The meeting was largely  nttended.

H., a gold property near Sil- i  verton, assays $25 to the ton and hns a  60 feet ledge.  It is said that Scott McDonald has  paid ?10,000 cash for two-thirds of the  Fidelity mine.  The Centre Star, at Rossland, has  been sold to the Blaokstock syndicate  at Toronto for $2,000,000.  The Canadian group, near here, is  showing up remarkably well. Eighteen inches of clean ore would make  any miner's eyes water.  A ������trike of Sft.solid ore in the Miller  Creek mine, near the Wonderful, has  been encountered���������all proving the fact  that the hills around Sandon are everywhere loaded with ore. ..,  It is reported that there is a sale  about made of the Southern Chief/  lying close to the Howard Fraction on  Gold Hill. Messrs. Gross and Foley  are the owners and have been working  it since early in the spring.  Mr. Adams reports much ��������� progress  on the Adams group. In both that  group and the Canadian group adjoin- '���������  ing, ore has been found for some time  in paying quantities. The Canadian  group is now a < regular shipper and  the Adams will follow in a very short  time.  Messrs.   Mulvey and Clements   are  pushing work   ou   the   Calumet and ,  Hecla, in   the   Dayton  basin.     This  -  claim has a very large ledge, carrying  galena which appears well adapted for ���������  concentration.   The owners are 'driving   a tunnel   to tap   the ledge at a  greater depth.  W. Thomlinson and others have a 60  days option on the Arden and Kelvin  claims, adjoining tho California, on  Silver mountain. The claims are.  being closely prospected, and consid-'  arable work is being done on a promising lead which runs through the both  properties.  f  A deal was consummated Wednesday whereby the two-third interest in  the Fidelity mine, owned by L. F.  Holtz and A. S. Williamson, was sold  lor a cash consideration, said to be  $10,000. Scott McDonald was the  buyer. The property will now go into  the hands of a company financially  able to work it.  Messrs. Hicks and Barber, owners of  the Transfer mine in Dayton basin,  have opened up a four-foot ledge of  ore, carrying galena, black sulphides  and native silver. The owners feel  considerably elated over their find, and  with good reason as it bids fair to become a valuable producer from the  grass roots.

Lieut-Governor Mclnnes appears to  be getting it soundly on all hands, and  most deservedly so. for his two most  unjustifiable acts���������the dismissal oi  Premier Turner and the calling in of  Mr. .Beaven. Here is what the Toronto Globe   has to say on the matter:  "The reasons for the action of the  lieut.-govemor in dismissing one ministry and sending for a defeated candidate to form another may possibly  be revealed later on, but at present it  is difficult to explain or to justify it, or  to compare it with anything in the  political- history of the Dominion.  The dismissal of a ministry by a lieut.--  governor has been defended on the  ground of corruption, rendering the  continuance of the ministry in office a  public danger, but Mr. Mclnnes does  not assign this as one of his reasons.  He simply declares that Premier Turner does not enjoy the confidence, of  the people.  The ordinary course is to send ior  the leader of the opposition, but Mr.  Mclnnes says that he cannot decide  whether the opposition would prefer  Joseph Martin or Mr. Semlin to form  a government. Therefore he solves  the problem by sending for a gentleman of whom, so far as is revealed at'  present, the opposition- were not  thinking at all. He says to the legislature and people in effect: 'As I am  not quite sure whom you want I shall  please myself.'  "If the lieut.-governor was in a  state of uncertainty as to the result of  fhe election surely the proper place  for discussion of that question was in  the newly elected legislature. If he  was right in his belief that Premier  Turner was in a minority, Mr. Turner  would have been defeated and it  ' would very soon have appeared who  was the choice of the newly elected  representatives of the people. If he  believed that Mr. Turner ought not to  hold office for a long period while the  question was undecided he could have  ensured a speedy decision by summoning the legislature at once.  "The lieutenant-governor's action  in passing over the recognized political leaders and sending for a rejected  candidate is simply a denial of popular government."  The Globe's contentions ar.e identical with ours from the start, and they  certainly are the proper ones. Turner had at least fifteen solid supporters at the start. The fact that the  opposition candidate was snowed un-  d������r in Cassiar is proof that the two  men elected are Turnerites, and the  further fact that the opposition are  protesting the seats of the independents is proof that Turner could depend on them also. He then, on the  surface,'had half the House with the  ofler of two vacant portfolios and a  speakership to strengthen his position ;  and in the face of this his honor  brought himself down to the level of  an opposition newspaper and alleged  that Turner had not the confidence of  the legislature. Were there no constitutional means open  to him  to get  foresight then would have suggested a  consideration of forces before he  jumped at conclusions. As in his  leap, however, like His honor, he  jumped into the brambles, he must be  prepared to bear the scratches which  will mark both'effectually during'their  natural lives.  the facts, he might have some excuse  for operating on the fancies. If he  found the Turner party were elected  corruptly, or were acting corruptly  after election, he would have strong  ground in dismissal for corruption ���������  but corruption has never been whispered. In his course, he was then influenced either by gossip in his minority conclusion or by a still more indefensible motive���������the advancement  of the interests of his son. As, however, there was an undisputed constitutional course open to settle his doubt  as to strengthen him, the adoption of  which would have been disapproved of  by no one���������he should have taken it,  and insisted on an early session of parliament. This would have disposed  of the matter effectually and without  hardship on any one. It atso would  have afforded him conviction on the  opposition leadership, on which he  says he was in doubt. In that early  session who was to be the leader of  the opposition would also be fully disposed of, as he would have seen that  fuctionary in his place in the parliament.  .'������������������:..  Mr. Beaven can never make an explanation to justify his haste, any more  than His honor can to defend his  aat, and both must bear the effectual  mark of public disapproval together.  Even though ambitious Mr. Beaven  should have ascertained his following  before accepting the responsibility^of  attempting cabinet making though  forced upon him. He knew there  were two well-defined parties in the  parliament in a. tug of war for office,  and, even though he formed his cabinet from without the House, without  one entire party or a majority from  both, heicould do nothing.    Ordinary  ,     "JOE" NOT IN IT.  From an article in Saturday's Province, it is evident   that the  provincial  cabinet trouble does not end with the  resignation   of   Mr.    Beaven.       Mr.  Semlin   has undertaken   cabinet making.     "Joe" Martin has refused to enter it on the ground that Semlin is not  the leader of the opposition, and that  no   leader will be selected   until the  20th.      The  Province   suggests   that  Semlin should have advised the lieut -  governor to hold   the whole matt=r in  abeyance till after  the 26th, which, of  course, he could not h-i ve done.     Under our constitution, the country cannot   be   left  without  a   government.  Turner  has been  dismissed,   Beaven  has failed   to   form a'   ministry, and  Semlin, when called on, had a peffect  right  to go on  cabinet making.    If,  after   the 26th, it  is   found  the   new  government want some one other than  Semlin   for leader,   the change,   even  after the cabinet is sworn in, is easily  made.     Mr. Semlin is now the   recognized leader of the party, and he is  perfectly justified in exercising all the  functions of leader, even to forming a  cabinet,   until   he  is deposed by  his  party.  The fact of the matter is Joe  Martin has "a far away hope" that he  may be chosen leader by his parly;  but even if he was, it would avail him  nothing, as on the first opportunity he  would be rejected by the country, and  he ought to know 'it���������in short his  whole party would suffer through his  promotion: As a matter of right the  Liberals should have three members  in the cahinet, with Martin as attorney-general, and the Conservatives  three. If Joe-Martin and bis friends  will not be satisfied with this, the only  thing is to let them go, and hoe the  row without them.  Since the,foregoing was put in type,  Joe reconsidered his refusal and  accepted office under Mr. Semlin.  When he found that a cabinet could  be formed as well without as with him,  he capitulated, and is now Attorney-  General, Mr. Cotton taking Finance  and Premier Semlin Land and Public  Works. The other ministers will be  aamed shortly. -���������  The new government after re-election should pass a proper redistribution measure, and then go to the  country, in which case they would  come back two to one. In the present House they cannot have a strong  government.  There are many  thousands of wise women in this country  who, when they found  that they were suffering: from, weakness or disease of  their distinctly  womanly organisms, promptly  wrote to an eminent and skillful  physician, with a  world-wide reputation, instead of  trusting- their  cases to some ob-  scure physician  with but limited  practice and experience. There  are many reasons why a wise woman follows tlii", course. The chances arethatan  obscuie physician of small piactice will  not diagnose troubles of this nature proper^'. If he does, he will insist on the  obnoxious examinations and local treatment from which every sensitive, modest  woman shrinks.  The specialist referred to is Dr. R. V.  Pierce, for thirty years chief consulting  physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical'Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y. Thirty years  ago he discovered a wonderful medicine  for diseases peculiar to women, that maybe  used effectively in the privacy of the home,  and does away with an necessity for examinations and local treatment.,. This medicine is known as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It acts directly o������ the d.ficate  and important organs concerned in wifehood and motherhood. It makes them  stronfr, healthy and vigorous. It allays inflammation, heals ulceration, soothes pain  and tones and builds up the nerves.

Pecksniff, ofthe Winnipeg Tribune,  says Mclnnes did right in dismissing  Turner j but this is so like Pecksniff.  The Globe on the other hand says he  did wrong, because outside of newspaper report and party gossip, the  governor had no means of knowing  how the parties stood. It is a great  pity governors do not always take the  advice of papers like the Tribune, that  can never see an inch beyond their  political spectacles. Fair play never  troubles their conscience.

It may not appear the best thing to  some people, but, none the less, we  believe it 10 be the fact, that if the  owners of some of our stand-bys of  mines such as the Payne, the Star, the  Reco, the Ruth and others were to  sell some of their stock in the eastern  cities of Canada, the dividends the  purchasers would receive would at  once bring the Sandon camp to the  front with a ruch the like of which has  never before,been experienced in this  country. Go where you will in the  east, and all that is heard of is Rossland, and yet there are but two mines  there that have paid dividends, the  Payne here paying much more than  both combined. /The truth is theout-  side world has no knowledge of the  success of our dividend paying properties pr of the new ones unfolding  that are fast creeping on to the record  ofthe old established ones. If, as we  have said, capitalists abroad only  knew what is being earned by our dividend paying properties, and the little  expenditure required here compared  with what is required in gold propositions, to bring our newer ones into  dividend payers,. there ; would be an  unprecedented rush for the Sandon  section of the Slocan.  If this cannot be accomplished, the  next best thing to.do is for the city  council, and the owners of properties  most interested, to advertise the facts.  Go outside of British Columbia anywhere, and you will find but few, who  are in a position to invest, who have  heard; of the Slocan, and fewer still  who know that we have dividend paying properties; and that is what capital is in search of. We repeat it  again, those who have properties or  stock to dispose of are standing in  their own light very seriously in not  exerting themselves to ha've the facts  fully placed before the capitalists, not  only of Canada, but of the world at  large. - .

"If husbands only knew, or, if knowing, only cared, how very much their  words and manners affect the temperature 'of tha home world, thoy would  never by word or deed leave it enshrouded in gloom," argues Mrs. A.

The Basis of Credit.  A man's past record, with but few  exceptions, should detormino the question of his eligibility for credit in the  future. If he has oaon slow pay in the  past, he will probably be slow pay in  his next purchases. If he has been  prompt and satisfactory, he will likely  be the same again. As an instance I  might mention a case -which recently  camo under my notice. A trader who  had gradually got to bo slow and unsatisfactory was compelled to assign. .His  failure was not duo to any misfortune,  such as fire or flood, but seemed the  natural consoquenco of his incompetence  and lack of management. A wholesale  house which had beon supplying him  lost heavily, but compromised, and aa  he continued they still sold him, but on  80 days' time. For awhile he promptly  attended to his payments, but after a  time he got slower and slower, and as  he was a liberal buyer and his purchases  "were allowed to accumulate ho soon  owed a bill far larger than bis means  would warrant. As this dragged along  for some years a compromise was granted upon this indebtedness also. Still he  clung to his old creditor and again ordered goods, promising to send the  money within SO days. But his past  record was too much even for 60 lonient  a creditor. Ho was told plainly that ho  would got no more goods on credit and  that if be ordered anything cash must  accompany the order in every case.  Now, a man of this stamp is a positive  detriment to a man who pays his bills.  After thus ; being refused credit by tho  old house he will try and get it elsewhere and no doubt will succeed. But  if his record is known it should be a  final answer to tbe question of granting  him oredit.���������Hardware.  Remedies That Should Bo Used Before the  Doctor Arrives. ^t  A burn may result from excessive  heat applied in any way���������hot air or hot  water, steam, flamo or electricity���������or  even from oxtreme cold.' The injury resulting from contact with hot water or  iteam is usually called a scald, but is  practically the same in its rosults as a  burn.  Surgeons speak of different degroes  of a burn, according to .the amount of  tissuu destroyed by it. Thus a burn of  the first degree is one that simply rod-  dens and . irritates tho skin; a burn of  tho second degree* is ono that causes  actual inflammation of the skiu with  the formation of blistors, whilo a burn  of the third degree destroys tho , skin  and moro or less of tho flesh beuoatb. it,  or even chars and kills all the tissues,  including the'bono itself.  The effects of a burn depend partly  upon its degree, but not entirely, for a  burn even of the first degree may oause  death if it involves a very largo portion  of tho surface of the body. This it does  ^by interfering with the necessary excretion of waste matter which is constantly taking place through tho skin.  A curious effect of a severe bum in  any part of the body is ulceration of  the bowels following very intense congestion of the entire digestive canal.  The bronchial tubes and the lungs are  somotimes injured by tho inhalation of  steam or very hot air, but even apart  from such an accident a person who has  been burned about the chost or back is  very liable to havo an attack of brou-  ohitis or pneumonia in consequence.  Tho first thing to be done in the oase  ot a burn of any degree is to stop the  pain. This should be done not only from  the natural impulse to relievo suffering,  but because .the shock 'resulting from  the injury may be so greatly increased  by the agony as to cause the death of  the patient, even when the burns in  themselves would not do so.  Covering tho part with any bland  Bubstance, such as olive 'oil, vaseline,  aweet butter or flour paste, to keop off  the air will, often afford great relief,  and in burns of the first degree nothing  more may bo needed. Carron oil, the  name given to a mixture of equal quantities of linseed oil and liruewator, was  formerly aud is still in many workshops  the favorite application for a burn.  Better still is bicarbonate of soda (oook-  ing soda) or calcined magnesia, made  into an ointment with vaseline or lard  or dusted thickly over the skin.  Another application which is ofton  exceedingly grateful is a solution of  nitrate of potash (nitre). Hunters often  make a paste of gunpowder for this purpose. Ono or other of those applications  will usually suffico in mild cases, and  in severe burns will help to reduce tho  pain for the time until the doctor comes.  ���������Youth's Companion".  san  A Great IPoIycIot..

Experts Tell Soma IIiIdzs About Its Qualities and tho Way In Which It Is .Made.  I>etonatJon or JS-rplosiozi Is Brought  About by Shook.  "Gun cotton," sold on ordcanoe offic?r  a few days ago, "is by far tho safest of any  of tho high'explosives. That is tho rp.-ison  ft is choson instead of tho nitroglycerin  preparations, which, olthougli they will  products moro powerful effects, aro \ery  Sangcrous things to have on shipboard,  l'hoy can bo exploded too onsily by tho application of heat, by a shock and under  rarao conditions by spontaneous combu:;-  tion. But the gun cotton, so long us it, is  kept wet, is absolutely safo, and thero is  no trouble, about preserving tho necuisary  degree of moisturo."  Precisely tho B.iino opinion regarding  gun cotton as r.n explosive for naval warfare was expressed   by the superintendent;  of one of tho largest powder manufacturing firms.  "Sot only is gun cotton absolutely inert  '    nnd  harmless so long as  it is wet," he  said, 'but  it docs  not necessarily follow  that it will  oxplodo even when dry.    Of  oourse it is thon  much more liable to do  to, but if it is undisturbed in  any way a  considerable quantity of it might remain  dry without any nccidont.    In our works  wo aro extremely careful about tho way in  which  wo   handle  dry  gun  cotton,   but  ,   thero is no need of any precautions when  ,  It is wet.    On shipboard tho disks of dry  cotton which  aro  used ns primors to do-  .   tonato tho wet aro always kept away from  tho nuiynzlno, cither on deck or in ono of  tho cabins.    '  "Tho only danger from thom would bo  In caso thoy woro dropped whilo being handled. The result then would not always���������  perhaps not usually���������be an explosion, but  you nover can tell with cortainty. Ono of  the disks might bo dropped hulf a dozen  tlinos and not explode, aud the next tlmo  undor apparently tho same conditions it  would go off. As fur as boat is concerned,  If tho dry gun ootton is oxposod to a continued high temperaturo for a, long time,  It 'Is likely to decompose, undergoing  chemical ohangos whioh gonorato heat and  may go fair enough to cause spontaneous  combustion. But no such oondition is  possible) on a ship, because the gun cotton  Is always carried in tho torpedo heads and  Inspected regularly to seo thut it remains  wet. Tho heads aro praotieally airtight,  but if any cvuporntion'is noticed the cotton can bo dampened again by a regular  means urrangod for that purpose."  Tho proooss  by which  so common and  barmloss n substance as ootton is converted into a high explosivo is a comparatively  simple one.,   Puro raw cotton or ordinary  ootton wasto is stooped in a solution of ono  part of nitrio acid und  throe purts of sulphuric acid.    Tbo  nitrio aoid is tbe ono  which "renders the. cotton  explosivo, the  prosonco of  tho sulpburlo  boing required  only to absorb  tho water, thus allowing  the other ucid  to comblno  more readily  with  the  nearly puro oellulosobf  which  cotton   consists.    Aftor   the   cotton   has  conked in the aoids for several hours it is  taken from tbo pots and squoezed through  heavy rollors to oxtruct all tho superfluous  acid which it hns  not absorbed.    Thon it  is washed  carefully, and thoroughly, still  with tho same object of removing tho free  acid. If any of this remained, its tendoncy  would bo to cause chemical changes in the  gun cotton and decompose it.    Foriuorly  this washing wus tho last process resorted  to for tho-romovol of  tho frei'ncid,c'but a  few, years ago Sir Fredoriok Abul  fouud  that tho cells in tho cotton fiber so absorbed and rotainod tho noid  by capillary  attraction that tho washing failed  to extract it entirely. To romedy this nnd make  tho gun cotton more puro, it is now aftor  being washed  passed through a machine  similar to that which  grindss up tho rags  in a paper mill.    Ilore it is crushed thor-  pughly and afterward washed again until  tbo last trace of free aoid  disappears aud  tbo cotton com09 out in the form of a soft  Whito pulp, olosoly rosombling tho pulp of  Which paper is mado.  This conoludes the   process of  aotual  manufacture, and it now remains only to  convert tho gun ootton into tho most convenient form for tho uso to which it is to  be put.   If it is to bo employed in making  powder, it Is dried  and  stored away in  pulverlzod form, but if It Is designed for  filling torpedoes it must be compressed to  a certain  donsity and <- moldod into the  Bhnpes which  will  best enable it  to be  packed   into' tbo   torpedo heads.    Thoso  shapes vary according la the design of tho  torpedoos   and  tbe  method  of  paoking.  Somotimoa thoy arc disks and sometimes  cylinders, flat squaros or cubes. ,If uncompressed and dry, tho gun ootton would be  extremely light, woifj-hing no more than  ordinary cotton  batting, but whon  made  into the above formo it is compressed to  the densiDy of an  equal amount of water.    Tho percentage of moisture remaining in tho gun cotton when  it is packod  into torpedoes varies  between 15 and 80.  So safo from explosion, unloss detonated,  is n brick of wot gun ootton  that it may  be placed upon hot coals. As tho moisture  dries off from tha outside the ootton flakes  off and burns vip* quietly.    Porfootly dry  gun .cotton, whon   confined, in a strong  paso, will oxplodo with great violence if  exposed to a temperature of about 820 degrees P. ,  Detonation, or tho firing of explosives by  Intense shook, is a modorn mothod, for  until 80 years ago tbe application of hoat  was always used to bring about an explosion. It has now boon discovorod that detonation produces a more powerful offeot  than oxploston by moans of heat. In detonating tho wot gun cotton inthetorpodo  heads- the primor of dry gun ootton which  Is used weighs only a pound or thereabout.  It is placed in oontact with the wet mass,  which in a Whitehead torpedo consists  usually of about 250 pounds. Then, by  moans of a fuso and fulminate of mercury  cap, a flame is shot through tho disk of  dry gun ootton. This explodos instantly,  and with it tho entire muss of the wot cotton, producing tremendous results.���������New  "York Tribune.  50C. 50C.  GOLD-WATCH  FREE.

Rosebery is the only town in Kootenay having  both railroad and steamboat connection that can ��������� ,  ship goods daily to ten diflerent towns, whereby the  shipper can see his wares leave his hands and that  they will be received by the consignee within two  hours.  Its Advantages as a Railroad Center.  Rosebery enjoys the position of king of the  funnell as it were, for the raihoad business of the  whole of the Kootenays. All ore and matter for  , ^ shipment from Nelson, Trail Creek and the Slocan '  must, and is now passing out this way to the main  line of the C. P. R., as well as all goods coming  . in from Revelstoke to the Kootenay country.  NOTE. To substantiate'this: The C. P. R.  are now putting in track weigh scales at Rosebery,  the first and only scales that has been put in on any  of the C. P. R. branches in Kootenay���������which  goes to show the importanc; of this point by the ^  Canadian Pacific Railway Company's actions.  Its Advantages as a Steamboat Point.  Rosebery claims, without opposition, of being  ��������� the only junction on the lake, unlike' Slocan City,  where you can step ofl the steamer to a waiting  train and continue your journey. ��������� You can take  either a north or south train at this terminus ��������� consequently Rosebery is the best transient town in  the race. Nevertheless we claim Slocan City  second in importance, and would say watch the  head and foot of Slocan Lake, viz.���������  ROSEBERY AND SLOCAN CITY.  Its Advantages as a Manufacturing  Center.  As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the careful  observation of the Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points in  Kootenay for the treatment of ores the cheapest,  Rosebery was selected, and they now are erecting '  works, with a capacity of 250 tons per day, which  will be in operation within 90 days j and it is their  intention to pay out monthly in the vicinity of  $100,000. I might also add Rosebery has the  largest water power from' Wilson river flowing into  Slocan Lake.  AS TO GLIM ATE.  Rosebery claims the mildest climate on Slocan  Lake, from its admirable southern exposure and  absolute shelter from the north; snow always  leaves the place about the 15th of March.  AS A TOWNSITE.  As a townsite, Rosebery is without a peer. It  is possessed of all the flat land available at the  , mouth of the Wilson river leading to the valley���������  mining region���������consequently there is no danger of  any contagion. The title is a Crown Grant and  is perfect. All purchasers'of lots are safe in this  respect. The only safe speculative townsite in the  Slocan is Rosebery.  Why should I say the only safe speculative town-  site in the Slocan ? Because Rosebery business  lots to-day are only $150 to $200 each and are  bound to increase rapidly this summer. These  figures can, and will, double befor������. long. The  time to buy is now. Don't wait till they arc from  $700 to$i,ooo, asyou did in Slocan City last May,  go in on the ground "floor and make a few dollars  in speculation; if you want to invest go to Van-  couver or Winnipeg; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.

MOUNTAIN ECHOES.  Tommy Ryan wants to fight McCoy.  Bar silver is up to COc. and lead to  $3.S0.  Tha Spanish government is like that  , of B. C���������'"busted."  The hot weather appears to have  taken a slight tumble.  Two men fighting on, Reco Ave. on  Saturday and 200 spectators.  The rich strike reported around  Burton City is not panning out.  For cruelty to animals a Three  Forks man was fined $10 by the Beak  the past week.  Mr. Spencer will give a grand ball in  his hall the night of Sandoa'a big cel-  ;   ebration, Sept. 5.  Some ladies and gentlemen in a  canoe party got drenched ' in the lake  at New Denver the other day.  Antoino Brino is now in gaol at Nelson for, murdering another Italian  named Pneiro at Moyie City, on Sunday last.  Joseph Mi-Bride, a native of New  Castle, Eng., but a miner at the Queen  Bess.died this week of inflammation of  the bowels, and was buried at Isew  Denver.  Mrs. A. Sproat, New Denver, gave a  lawn partv in support of the brass  band. We will s>������on have a band here,  but e wdon't know so much about the  lawn party.  Be not deceived!

The Payne 'is a heavy shipper, but  the types m..de us credit her with f extraordinary shipments last week. The  shipment via C. P. R. was 4S0 tons.  It is not the Kaslo Sun but the B. C.  News, of that place, that recently gave  up the ghost. The Sun is shining on  even more brightly than ever since  the funeral of its elder brother.  Even Joe Martin denounces f the  lieut.-governor for dismissing Mr. Turner. The Vancouver Province and the  Winnipeg Tribune are about the only  wester., papers that justify the dismissal.  A Revelstoke man was before the  Beak here this week as .a little demented. Closer investigation showed  that it was only the "usual weakness,"  and ho was given into the charge oi  his friends.  The Press Association of Spokane  are offering an outing to their brethren, including those of this province,  on the 25th. We will be there in  spirit���������we cannot spare dough enough  to go in the flesh.  Mr. McGregor, inspector,, says that  the mine owners of this camp, for the  most part, are taking every precaution  to prevent accidents and injuries to  their operatives. 7H>. has had to ofi'er  suggestions in but very few cases.,          .-���������....',      .'���������_���������..'��������� o  Some of our confreres talk of Sandon asi the '"Sunless City." ���������; Well,, we  don't require as much sun as the open-  faced towns on the lakes���������our streets  cover all shortage.

Tuesday, September 29th, is. the day  set by the government for the vote to  be taken on the plebiscite. On that  day the question of the liquor traffic  will be settled, and it depends on the  voters of the Dominion whether Canada is to become a prohibition country  or not. ..-'���������.  "Joe" Martin took the temperance  side, for which from habits he is preeminently well fitted, of a iiquor case  at Stevesou 'the'other day.'' During the  trial the contesting'lawyers got as far  as "liar, skunk, etc." in the legal vocabulary. All such, and these men  aim at becoming provincial premiers.  What next? . :������������������'...  While it is true that "A thing of  beauty is a joy forever," there would  be more general joy if our city fire bell  were put to some general use. It  would meet with general approval if it  rang at .7 and 12 a.m., and 1 and 6  p.m. Even if it were rung at 10:45  a.m. and 7:25 p. m. on Sundays, there  would be no ong to raise an objection.  The Hon. Geo. E. Foster on his visit  Saturday told a Review, reporter that  capital would rush to this camp at an  unprecedented rate, if the capitalists  of the world only knew what the established mines were doing aiid the  facility with which prospects can be  developed; and yet our city council  arc doing nothing to advertise tbe  facts.   :   '  The readiness with which some peo-  plcbite at anything new is astonishing. For instance, if a transient dealer  of any kind comes to town,paysa heavy  license hotel bill, travelling expenses  and rents, there are some who think  he can still offer bargains. ' Summed  up these exp nses may be 25 per cent.:  on his aggregate business, and 25 per  cent,on any eastern rates makes prices  much higher than local charges in  their normal way. There is no man  who can give lower prices than the  local dealer, well established in a regular trade.  Mr. Grimmett's cosy little cottage is  about nearing completion.  Mr. Smith has a letter from Mr.  Harris which says that gentleman will  likely reach home by the 15th of next  month.  The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist  church will serve lunch also refreshments, including ice-cream, soft drinks  etc., on Labor Day,  Ladies, take the best.

Mr.'McCluskey, an old-time Sandon-  ite, has sold out his business here, and  left with hi.s family to-day ior Victoria  where he has bought out a business.  It is not. ini|.rob.ible that when all  their affairs are closed up that Mr.  Switzer may follow.  And so John L. Retall.ick lias gone  to Spokane to reside permanently.  Would not representing the Slocan by  way of Spokane be a nice thing'? The  fact of the matter is Mr. Retallack  nover cared a straw about the representation of the Slocan, and all he  wanted was M. P. P. after his name to  enable him to sell mining properties  in the east or elsewhere; but "he  cawn't due it ye kneow."  Up to writing, the new government  had not filled its three vacant portfolios ; but hope is expressed from ail  sides that the Dept. of Mines may be  given to Mr. Green. From business  and public experience he is, at least,  as qualified as any representative  looking for it, and our constituency  has claims altogether overshadowing  those of any other division, as to the  number of miners at work, the number  of dividend payers and shipping properties, the money invested etc., etc. It  is generally understood that the late  government acknowledged the superior  claims of the Slocan, in promising the  portfolio to Mr. Retallack.  ft TIRED ftPPE^'^  JUL  flPPirCflTlOH FOR REUEI1 OF LICENSES.  is as bad as a tired head or tired limbs.

ANIMALS AS MODELS.  Some of tho Experience* of an Artist In  Sketching From Life.  "Leaves  From  tho Skotchbook  of nn  'Animal Artist' " Is an article by Meredith  Nugent in St. Nloholas. Mr. Nugent says:  Thoro was an elophunt in tho Jurdin , dei-  Pluntcs  that would  not pose  unless  h<.  wore  paid  for  it, and  paid  in  advance  Then ho  took payment in buns  and pir  but it those were not forthcoming lio won)  deliboratoly walk to the farther end of th'  inclosuro  und  turn  his  back.

Suddenly he lay down on his back, placed  one end of thu bono in his jaws and wit!  his hind paws tippod tho othor ond of iii;  bono so high up that tho ohoico morsel  slipped into his mouth. If tho animal could  only havo understood the shouts of upprov  al that greoted this performance, I think  it would havo turned his head.  As n rule, I find tho models very good  natured. Truo, thoy keep.a sharp oyo on  xne for the first few days, but after that  are generally quite friendly. Of courso  there aro somo parts of the business they  do not liko. The oriole never was happy  whon I held him in my hand for close inspection, but a beautiful oat which rebelled when I first placed her in a birdcage, to keep her in front of mo, grew so  fond of hoing thero that after I finished  my drawings she cried and oried to be put  baok into tho cage. ,     '  Intense curiosity is the great characteristic of animals when in the studio.
