The mines around Sandon and adjacent camps are nearly all working, mostly ut development, and a great number  of the payrolls are increasing slowly-.  The mining outlook is very bright, and  it is expected when winter sets in the  raw-hiding will double last .year's output. A few of the properties have 00  men, but in many cases most of the payrolls range from four to 30 men. The  Slocan Star, the largest working mine  at present, has been shipping steady for  'some time largo .quantities of ore to the  Selby smelter every week. A few men  have been laid off this week. The concentrator is running on day shift only.  The.Noble Five has a fine showing of  ore which was found in the new tunnel.  These workings are being developed and  from which one car of good ore was  shipped some two weeks ago, netting  satisfactory returns.  The Surprise group of two claims near  the Noble, has also a fine showing,  which was discovered recently.  ���������At the Payne there is a large number  of men working underground and on the  surface, The new compressor plant is  here, and other machinery, and in a  short time the carpenters will beat  work putting up the new buildings.  When everything is in shape, the chances are that the mine will open up full  blast. ' .  At the Last Chance the long tunnel is  nearing completion, and will be one of  the longest in the Slocan.  The Ivanhoe is increasing the staff  slowly at the mine. The mill is putting  through the dump at the present time  and w.ill commence shipping this week  again.  The Qneon Bess has .10   men   on  the  payroll, having laid oil' a few miners in  ��������� the past ten (Jays.  . 'The Freddy Lee aud Chicago No. 2are  not working. The Rcco-Goodenongh  has joined the list of shippers. A car of  high grade ore was sent to the Trail  smelter last week. A rich strike of  ruby silver was made on the Texas, one  of the group, a short time ago.  The Idaho, Ruth, Trade Dollar, Car-  ��������� bonates No. 2, Canadian group and Rabbit Paw are just doing development  work, are not shipping, each is'eni-  ploving a few men.  v\r; \V. Warner has opened up the  Mountain Con again, and he reports a  new strike of 18 inches of good ore on  the property. The' Wonderful and Miller Creek are now in the stages of development, a few cars of ore are being sniped to the Trail smelter at stated  times.  A write-up of the American Boy appears in another column of this paper.   .  On th'e K.& S. line the Rambler-Cari-  1)oo. Washington. Great Western, Soho,  Red Fox and'Whitewater, tributary to  Sandon, are also in the stages of development.- .       .  Silver Lanee Group.  Dr. Anderson, of Nelson, Dr. Rogers,  and Messrs. D. McPhail and Erieson,  of Kaslo, have in the Silver Glance  group at McGuigan a wonderful rich  property.' D. McPhail, who has been  engaged in development work on the  group, has advised his partners that on  Wednesdav he struck the lead in plabe.  at a depth 'of 300 feet. The paystreak  is 18 inches wide, nearly all snlphurets,  and will assay upwards of 1000 ounces  in silver with jrood gold values. The  black sulphtirets alone assay in value  $4800 per ton in gold and si Iyer. The  ledge has been proved for a distance of  400.'feet along the surface, and with the  ; depth shown there seems to be sufficient  ore already in sight to make the owners  wealthy. It is the,intention to commence shipping at once.' A large order  for ore sacks has been placed locally.  .  The- Stuttz- New York Theatre Co.  opened a three night's engagement in  the Miners' Union Hall on Tuesday.  His advance agent, Mr. Marsh, came  here on Saturday and left Monday without securing the hall. However, the  company have received flattering press  notices from all over the Dominion, and  a committee of citizens awaited on Mr.  Stuttz at New Denver and requested  him to play in Sandon. It was his intention to do so in any event, and lie  came up himself on Monday and secured  the hall. The engagement opened'with  the well known drama "Was She To  Blame?" The hall, was crowded and  seemed to give heart to the performers.  Thoy all rendered the parts well, but  the star of the play was Miss Agnes Anderson, who-performed the difficult role  nf maid, wife and mother to perfection.  Mr. Stuttz, as Elam Washington Pancake, is a whole show in himself, and  .Mr. Olmi, who is an actor as well as a  singer, carried away his audience. Before the last act Mr. Stuttz stepped to  the front of stage and explained why he  came to Sandon. lie said he came for a  purpose and had put himself out about  $200 to accomplish it. He was here to  exonerate himself from the unjust accusation of burning the city a year ago  last May; lie gave n, clear rendition^of  affairs on that, eventful night and established lus'innocence beyond doubt. He  was frequently applauded during his re--  marks, and wound up by paying that if  the people iiad cleaned up their back  yards then as they do now, the city  would never have been destroyed. Mr.  Stuttz ingratiated -himself into the  hearts of his hearers, who turned out  large numbers each evening as if to  atone in some way the injustice done  hi mi Nov/ the question arises, who was  to blame?' Was She To Blame? No.  Was Stuttz to blame? No again. Then  now that the old Huckleberry of J. P.  township is not to blame, who is? It  will evidently remain a mystery. On  Wednesday evening the company rendered ."Jack's Lost Paradise." The participants seemed to enter into the spirit  of the play and carried the plot through  from start to finish, ending in the just  killing of the villian,. Wm. Graham, to  the delight of the audience.  Last -night, "Under the Gas Light,"  wound up the engagement. The play is  one of the late Augustine Daly's best  pieces, ane was well conducted throughout. Efforts were made to get the company to play Saturday night under the  auspices of the Catholic church, hut on  account of previous arrangements, Mr.  Stuttz could not see his way clear to  grant the request. The troupe leave today for Revelstoke, and carry with them  the best wishes of the Sandon people, -  Sloean Star Laid Of! Men.  ft is understood that the Slocan Star  is negotiating with the Selby and Trail  shelters to treat their ores. The ore  taken out jusl now contains a large  .ampunt of grey copper and some ruby  Silver, which if run through the concentrator would lose considerable values  in the waste. A number of 'men have  been ��������� laid oil' this week, and it is rumored the mill will nh lit .down today,  mainly on account of the scarcity of  water for. power. If they succeed in  making arrangements with either of the  smelters the. mill will start up next  week with steam power, the ore will be  'run through the crusher only and ship-  ed in its .crude state. .  Monday was nomination day for an  alderman to fill the vacancy in the city  council. No names were handed in and  consequently no election.  |THELOCAL BUDGET J  8><$>3><$>3xS><$><^$><$>^  .Win. Rowan loft on Monday for a trip  to Sault rite Mane. -  Robt. Cunning is home from his trip  to Washington and other points.  For the week ending August 29th the  Whitewater mine shipped 112 tons.  Miss Douval, who has been visiting  her sister, Mrs. P. A. Dwyer, returned to  Wjalla Walla, Wash., on Tuesday.  Mrs. Flatts will leave in about two  weeks on a trip to Pennsylvania, and  will likely remain there lor the  winter.  H. W. Harbor was in Nelson a .few  clays .this week and Agent Clarke, of  Slocan Junction,- relieved him while  away.  ��������� The trackmen's strike was declared oil  at noon yesterday. While going to  press, we have not heard the terms of  settlement.  John S. McKenzie .left on Wednesday  for his o'cl home in Glasgow, Scotland,  wherehe will spend the winter. He is  undecided whether he will return to  Sandon again or remain thero.  Another forest fire got started between  Carpenter and Cody creeks on the mountain east of Cody, destoying a large  amount of timber. The fire is still  burning, The Noble Five have a gang  of men at work fighting fire,, and'in  places the flume has been destroyed.  We understand Aid. Cameron has  withdrawn a bill he had against the  council, to save disqualification and the  consequences. Mr. Cameron should  not be placed in that situation. He did  honest work under the instruction of  ex-Mayor Pitts and should be paid for  it. Trio difficulty can be got over, if the  council has foresight enough to vote him  a salary .equivalent to tiie money owed  him. Surely the pinchbeck clerk ought  to have brought   this-much knowledge  from "the other side."  (*  On Wednesday morning Mrs.Hesketh  of Three Forks, met with a very painful  accident. She started out early to pick  berries, tind after being out some time,  in stepping over an obstruction she  slipped and fell. In stretching outlier  arm to save herself, her wrist came in  contact with the jagged edge of a broken  bottle, inflicting an ugly gash about four  inches long, very deep, and severing the  arteries. Dr. Gomm was hastily summoned, dressed the wound, which necessitated several stitches, and bound  up the severed arteries. The patient  came to town on Thursday, and although suffering much pain is doing as  well as can be expected.   .  Suspended Clerk Lyons has now issued two proclamations for the nomination of an alderman to fill the vacancy  on'the council board, and so far there is  no name forthcoming. As there is luck-  in odd numbers he had better try it  'again. The fact of the matter is no one  outside of the few illegalities who are  now trying to run water up hill, wants  to have anything to do with the mess, as  the longerit stands the stronger will  grow the smell. If the present "aldermen" are wise, they will throw up the  job at once. They now want to dispense  with.some of their officials and cannot  find the money lo pay them. The longer  they are continued the greater will be.  the difficulty to raise the wind. ".Tuinp  the job," gentlemen, and take a rest.  For last week the Slocan Lake ore  shipments were 195 tons.  The Palace hotel was re-opened last  Saturday under the management of  Knowles & Findlay.  The Slocan Star is now putting in an  assay office at the mine. Mr, Robinson  from Glasgow, will take charge.  A good strike of concentrating ore was  made the other day on the Silversmith,  one of the new workings recently opened up by the Slocan Star Co.  A blazing chimney in the Byers-Gie-  gerich block on Tuesday evening called  out the fire brigade. They responded to  the alarm quickly, and Chief Mclnnes  had three streams playing on the building in as many minutes. No damage  was done. ..    ��������� <���������  A. C Minkhouso, of tho Ivanhoe concentrator, broke his leg Monday morning while trying lo attach a belt to one  of~the gigs in the mill. He was seated  on an oiling plank, and the belt being  stiff, he used one of his feet to push it  in place, when his leg was by some  means drawn into the belt. He was removed to the hospital.  The Mountain Con.  Where one party makes a failure another makes a success, and this ancient  proverb has been demonsuated in the  Mountain Con. Some 18 months ago  Mr. Warner leased this claim, when he  r.ssiduor.?ly set to work and opened it  up, shipping a few cars of ore. Shortly  after Mr. Warner bonded the property  to an English company for ,|20,000, and  a large cash payment was paid down.  Mr. Graham, their representative here  last summer, dispersed ij'10,000 in such a  useless manner thnt ended in his recall,  ami ho was replaced by an expert in the  person of Mr. Reihle. Mr. Reihle after  driving & 200 foot drift on the lead, decided on behalf of the company to throw  up the bond. All they had to" show for  the money expended was two ore three  tons of ore. Mr. Warner has sent up a  few men to prosecute work on his own  account, and has uncovered in the company's drift a chute of ore 75 feet long  and from 8 inches to 3 feet of carbonates and galena, which he is now ship-  iiig. This chute of ore assays exceptionally well, giving 28(1.6 ozs. of silver  and 51.48 per cent lead, or $145 50 to  the ton net.  John Sheridan returned to town on  Tuesday from the Yellow Pass country.  He has been away several months and  visited many points in that locality. :  Rieh Strike at the Rambler.  A very remarkable strike is reported  at the Rambler-Cariboo at McGuigan.  On the 700 foot leyel, 300 feet from the  shaft, on ore shoot 175 feet long has  been opened up by a short cross-cut  cairying the richest ore ever found on  the property. The shoot is from one to  two feet wide, averging close to (100  ounces in silver. Specimens of the ore  shown are full of ruby siver and assay  many thousand ounces. The vein is in  granite formation, indicating permanency.  Sandon Ore Shipments!  The followinsr are tho ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tons.

At the Lime of their suspension, the  company's engagements amounted to  ������19,000,000. The terrible announcement was made at half-past threo  o'clock in the afternoon of May 10th  18GG.  The following produced tho greatest panic LhaL has ever struck England, and the Government was compelled Lo authorize the Bank of England to issue notes beyond the legal  limit. This crash entirely ruined  English credit on tho continent formally months. The aggregate loss  to the shareholders in Ovcr'end and  Ciurncy's Bank  was  over  THREE MILLIONS- STERLING."

Then it was discovered that the  Government had no official confirmation, and stocks crashed back to  their origin'il figure. But. meanwhile Charles '-Random de Berenger,  who had masqueraded as Lieutenant-  Colonel du Bourgh, had netted a  profit of about leu thousand pounds!  HIS RECOMPENSE.

Brandon, a young Englishman, met  his death in tho district of Ping  Yang on tho night of August 8 last.  Tho news of the murder and of Lhe  subsequent trial and conviction of  tho suspected natives has just reached his relatives and the press. Far  into the mountains of Corca (writes  a correspondent) young Brandon was  the assistant superintendent of an  American mine.  Tho natives had for years made tho  i most exemplary of workmen until the  night of August 5, when a religious  feast had taken place, and native  whiskey in largo quantities had flowed freely, not one sober native being  loft in Lhe camp. The other six  white minors had gone to Taboyle,  and tho nearest European settlement  was six miles from Brandon's JieacN  quarters. On the fatal night lie was  the only white man in camp. The  next-day the other minors���������two of  whom were Americans and four English������������������found him dead in: bed, his  lamp still burning, and his cash'box  broken open on.tho floor.  Poor Brandon was .mutilated almost beyond recognition,'3 and the interior of tho hut bore, though ^lo  sign of a combat, tho appearance of  having been visited by a large number of natives. Rifle's and revolvers  and a large amount of! money were  found missing. It was a rainy.'week  and in the soft ground-it was. a very  simple matter to trace the malefactors." .'; ':'���������'' "';.".'  SIXTY-ONE SUSPECTS,  were'brought in before nightfall, including the keeper of the only inn in  the district:  Three days later a native.-', magistrate arrived from Won Son, followed by twenty of his retainers���������scribe  and prosecutor, as well as a squad  of native police. The following  morning an impromptu platform was  erected, and tho court opened.. The  magistrate, carrying a European umbrella over his head took the.  "bench" (an ordinary stool) while  Lhe crowd yelled "Ho you, Ho'you,  Ho you���������!"' the'meaning of which  ejaculation was "Honor his words-  speak the truth."  These cries were heard at short intervals from the native police during  tho entire proceedings.     The prison-  at a distance of about  from the judge, and  round 'their necks as  were called, crawled on  and feet . toward the  without lifting thoir  ground.

The innkeeper and a Chinese miner  were found guilty, and were hacked  to pieces. The others wore given a  slow death by strangulation,. death  ensuing on tho sixth or seventh day.  In Corca, if the friends of a condemned man have money or influence  the executioner (whoso oflice, by the  way, is hereditary) will end his misery on the second or third i\w with  ii heavy club. Almost all the prisoners in this case died within the  month following their torture.

Floated softly, yet far, with a half  musical, wholly pathetic cadence,  and seemed to nestle and die away  at the foot of the low hills which  the village folks politely called  "The Mountains."  A little old woman with a snowy  ca.p, a small shawl pinned over her  shoulders, and a dark dress,, stood  at the door of a cottage. The  smooth silvery hair and the soft  withered cheeks seemed to suggest  the charm of an earlier day ; perhaps she had even been very fair  in her long-ago youth. But the  large, dark eyes had a. strange, restless look, and x the hands twitched  nervously.  A^ younger woman stepped up beside her from within. She was taller,, larger, and less comely, but the  resemblance between them bespoke  near relationship.  "Yes, yes, mother," she ' said,  soothingly, laying her hand on the  other's shoulder. "Some day he'll  come. I wouldn't call him any more  now."  "Some other day ?" tho older  epjoried,  a faint color,   tinging    her  "Say, why don't  in n. psyche knot?  plaits."  you wear yer hair  Ycr  too  old  for  cheek.

"Mary, put a plate for Lemuel, he  might like a bit too ; and why do  you forgot ?" she added half fretfully. With a patient sigh the daughter  obeyed. How many weeks, months  and years was iL she had gone  through her useless task ?  "He'll come to-morrow,"- tho old  woman murmured, half to herself.  "Yes, to-morrow ho will come,  surely," Mary answered cheerfully.  It was almost stereotyped, their  brief Lalk. rcpcaLed daily. For years  the mother's heart had yearned and  waited for tho absent or the dead.  But, each morning life renewed itself  and hope sprang up again in the  clouded mind. Each morning of all  these long- years.  "To-day, to-morrow, he will  come !"  In the meantime the hamlet had  grown from a straggling sctLlement  to almost the proportions of a town.  The narrow, congested main street,  where butcher nnd baker were huddled together in confused proximity,  had been widened, and more pretentious stores and offices had taken  the. place of the smaller wooden  structures- of twenty years since.  Factories and mills had their clustering shops and workmen's dwellings and long fringes of outlying  streets with more or less ornate villas and cottages, had succeeded to  rural lanes or short cuts across the  common.  The street on which our cottage  was situated had been graded and  kerbed to the foot of, Lhe hills which  it was meant to climb, but had  faint-hcarLedly given out. and  though approached on the oLher side  by many more showy, residences the  cottage still held its own and looked  across the fields as it had clone  when first built on what-seemed almost a prairie.. It and Lhe enclosed  plot on which it sLood was a pattern of neatness which brought no  shame, and even set an example to  its larger neighbors.  Trees and vines had grown about  it, but they were kept sharply trimmed. All necessary repairs wore  promptly attended to, and each new  coat of paint reproduced, as nearly  as might bo, its predecessor. No  changes within or without showed  themselves, no added luxuries or adornments crept into any of the four  rooms, for the little mother grew  restless and unhappy, and what remained for poor Mary but to guard  her peace.  Nearly twenty years ago father,  mother1, ��������� son' and daughter had occupied the home. The father, somewhat taciturn and cold, had unbent  little to his children and frowned  upon what ho had called youthful  follies; when, in the case of the  son, his     eldest    born, folly some  times deserved a stronger name, he  reproved fiercely and sometimes unreasonably. The boy, fired with the  independence of youth resented and  rebelled.- and quarrels ensued till it  ended in tl'ie father's turning his son  out of doors, with Lhe injunction  never to let, him sco or.hear from  him again. Too liLorally had his behest been followed. Tho mother had  idolized ' hor boy; and under the  strains of silent grief her mind  gradually, gave way. No word had  come back from the wanderer. He  had written to his mother several  times but the father had destroyed  the letters without handing thorn to  hor, and* when one was returned to  Lemuel unopened he wrote no more.  He tried to drown the memory ��������� of  his youth in wild dissipations and.  sobering down at last, he tried to  put his old life from ids thoughts  amid new scenes and .surroundings.  To his whereabouts neither mother  nor sister had any clew, so groat a)  silence had fallen bcLwccn them. The,1  father's heart was sore, but he gave >  no sign, not even on his deathbed, I  which followed in Joss than a second  twelvemonth.  For years and years tho two women had lived on together, Lhe  snows.of age whitening the mother's'  ha.ir, while the roses of youth de- j  parted from Mary's face. The whole,  village knew tho story, and even tho j  stranger passing by would shako his1  head and guess something of its pa-i  thos when a woman's voice rang  through tho field : "Lcmu-cl! Oh,  Lemu-el !"  Was it a stranger, that bearded  man that one day came along the  road, with slow steps looking hero  and there, as if half in a dream ?  Back from the hill crime a faint echo,  "Lemu-el!" and he started and  pressed forward. Ho turned unerringly into the gate, passed through  the open door, and throwing himself  on his knees buried his face in tho  old  woman's lap  as she sat by   Lhe  should have been patient and tried  to do bettor. Please God, my boy  shall have no such experience."  "Your boy!" Mary asked eagerly,  her face lighting up.  "Aye. my boy���������bless him. He's a  ���������great lad. Well, I,settled down in  England, in a good, .sizeable village,  after awhile, and I did fairly well.  Then we married and we had this  one boy and-a girl."  "Where arc your wife and children ?"  He turned his face away for a. moment Lo conceal its quivering. "The  boy is with me���������tho other two lie  under the sod. When thoy wore gone  Lemuel and I didn't care to stay.  So we've boon wandering a bit.  Then it came over inc that I must  see Lhe old place' once more, and  hore I am."  "But where is your boy?" pressed  Mary. l    '  "He's down at the hotel. T just  wanted to walk around and take my  bearings first���������it's all so changed except this house."  "Yes, mother always wanted this  kept just the same until you- got  back. How like you've grown Lo  father, Lorn.   Is your boy like you ?'������������������'  At every mention of his son, the  man's face lightened up. "Yes, T  suppose he's like me sonic, but he's  taller and rosier, too, since he's  English born, whilst I sco a look of  the mother in him."  "Bring him !" Mary cried. "I am  pining to see him."  "Yes, I'll go and fetch him now,"  he said, rising. "It's seldom we're  so long separated."  So she bustled about, tidying up  tho always neat little house, and  looking into the glass Lo give sonic  touch of improvement Lo her own  personal appearance, of which,������������������ poor  soul, she scarcely ever thought, but  she had a sudden wish to be pleasing  1 in the strange young eyes.  The mother wandered around restlessly, going again and again to the  door and looking out toward Lhe  hills, but saying no word. And thus  they waited. At last the click of  the gate sounded, and the two, fath-  i cr and sou, came up Lhe path, Lhe  i latter looking around with question-  JOY IN LIFE.  SO SAY THE SUFFERERS FB.OIC  CHRONIC DYSPEPSIA.

Almost daily one hears some  one     complaining     of    the  tortures  caused them by this malady and it is  no'   uncommon thing to hear a sufferer say "I wish I was dead."    And  no     wonder,  the suffering caused  by  bad digestion cannot be imagined by  anyone who has not suffered from it.  The     victim is a constant    sufferer  from    headaches,    heart burn, heart  palpitation,   and nausea.     He has   a  bad taste in tho mouth, is unable to  obtain restful  sleep  and  has always '  a fooling of weariness and depression'.

Among those who have been cured  of this distressing malady by Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills is Mr. Alfred  Chasbot. a well known farmer living near St. Jerome. Que. To a reporter of- "L'Avonir du Nord," Mr.  ChasboL Lold the following story of  his illness and subsequent cure:���������.  "For three years 1 was an almost  continual sufferer from Lhe tortures  of bad digestion. After eating I felt  as if some heavy weight was pressing against my chest. I was racked  with violent headaches; my temper  became irritable; my appetite uncertain; my nerves were a wreck and I  was always troubled wiLh a feeling  of weariness. I was able Lo do very  little work nnd sometimes none at  all. Although I tried many remedies I was unsuccessful in my search  for a cure until a friend advised me'  Lo try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Any  doubts f may have had as to the  merits of these pills were soon dispelled. ' for I had not been taking  them long before I noticed an improvement in my condition. I continued the use of tho pills some  weeks when 1 considered myself fully  cured. To-day I am as' well as I  ever was in my life, and would  strongly advise all similar sufferers  to try Dr..

HONEST INDEED.  "If. the Boundary ore is worth only !}'5  a ton, the 2 per cent tax is not paid on  $4, as tho Times contends.   Tho cost of  frieght and treatment is deducted from  the value of  the   ore  before the tax Is  levied.   It  is   generally admitted that  that the cost of mining Boundary ore is  as low as $1 a ton in somer of the mines.  The average cost of freight  and   treatment is said to  be $2,75 a ton.   This  leaves the man who mines $5 ore a profit of 25 cents a ton after paying the cost  of mining and  freight  and treatment  charges.   .Deduct freight and treatment  charges of $3.75 from   the value  of   the  mine, and $1.25 is left, on  which   the 2  per cent tax is paid. ��������� The tax is therefore 2 1-2 cents a ton, which reduces the  mine owner's profit to 22 1-2 cents a ton.  If a mine produces 1000 tons a day, the  miner owner will   pay   $1000 a  day for  mining,   $3750   a   day  for freight and  treatment, $25 a day for taxes, and will |  have   $225   a day   profit.   Carry those  figures out'for a year and the mine owner will have disbursed $305,000 for mining, $1,3GS,750 for freight and treatment,  $9125 for taxes, and will   have   made a  profit of $S2,125, which is 20 per cent on  an investment of $410,025.   Suppose the'  tax was not paid, but that the province  remitted it altogether, the   profit   then  would be $91,250, or 22.2 per cent oii tho  investment.     Taking   everything  into  consideration, tho 2 per cent tax is not  a hardship on the owners of mines that  will pay to work, and' those mines that  that will not pay had better remain un-  worked.   Better for tho owners and better for the province.    Working mines at  a loss is ruinous to the owners and gives  the province a bad name."  The foregoing, as most readers will  imagine, is from the Nelson Tribune in  comment on the Greenwood Times; and  it places that paper just where most  people would like to find it. As many  already know, the average mine  owner purchases and works to a considerable extent, at least four properties  before he finds one to pay. Suppose,  and it is but a fair supposition,he spends  in purchase, machinery, working, &c,  $75,000 on each before he finds a profitable working, he has sunk $300,000 before he finds any return. Our neighbor  dwells on the fact he discovers the  .Boundary mines make a clear profit of  22)4 cents a ton, or   $225   a day profit.  DISEASE  and discomfort are not-ease  and not-comfort.

On any fair business  principles, the sum total of expenditure  on such properties should be deducted  from the earnings of profitable mines  before taxation or other legislative an-,  noy'ances should be introduced, as certainly until they are deducted the owner has worked at a loss. It does not,  however, suit the prejudiced kidneys of  the Houston stripe to put things this  way���������such representations would not  sufficiently inflame tho minds of the  element worked for their special purpose.  Some of our exchanges have got up a  cock and bull-yarn to the effect that  Premier Dunsmuir is going to resign,  and that he will call oil Joseph Martin  to take his place. Of course Mr. Dunsmuir can resign whenever he wants to,  and can even make a cabinet minister  To find that, however,  he only counts  wages and   freight   and   treatment; he  figures nothing on new machinery, costs  of  breakages, incidentals, &c.   As we  have   shown   above,  the  owner  sinks  $300,000 and interest until the money is  repaid, say another $100,000,  or $400,-  000.   Day by day  further investments  must be made in buildings, incidentals,'  &c, probably   running  up   $100,000   a  year.   From this showing it is evident  the owner is working for aevcral years,  to provide employment for men at home  in mining and abroad in the manufacture  of   machinery.    The trouble with  prints of the Tribune stamp is they give  the operations of  the best paying properties, as an   illustration of   them all,  and hold them up to the miners   as an  example of the pillage the owners are  making out of their labor, for the votes  it brings.   If   these   people were  only  honest in their criticisms representing  the lean with the fat, the miners being  properly educated would be in a different temper, less liable to quarrel with  their employers,  and   the  public  who  differ with them.   It  is   very  philan-  tropic to.say work only those properties  that pay; but experience proves it often  requires   a very considerable  expenditure on any and all  properties before it  can be known whether they will become  Seems easy to a man, but there is a  great deal of lifting and reaching to do ;  a great many trips up and down stairs to  make in the course of day's house work.

The people have all to say  in that matter, and Joseph is a political  impossibility in British Columbia for  all time to come.   Joe had his innings  once in this province, and he made such  a miserable score with   them   that another opportunity will   never   be given  him again.   The trouble with Joseph is  he must either rule or ruin, and he is so  utterly lacking   in   principle   that  the |  country can never trust him in rule. Of  course, in this province,  where' parties  are made up of local issues only the unexpected may at any time happen ; but  Joe's star in the west has set.  Does.any  one  suppose  such   men   as   McBride,  Green, Eberts,   Taylor,   and   a  dozen  others in the House could   ever work  with Martin?  The idea is too absurd to  be entertained for a moment; but how  the  cabinet  can hang together������when  Turner leaves it is a matter yet a mystery. '   Now it turns out that the compulsory  arbitration law in New Zealand! Houston   and   other   freaks   used to talk so  glibbily about is "declared   by tbe'p're-  mier of that country to be anything but  satisfactory. ��������� But what   else  could   be  expected?   Is  it   for   a   moment to be  supposed employers will good naturally  pay tinder compulsion   more than they  feel  they   ought  to   pay, or   that employees will willingly under compulsion  take  less   wages   than   they feel they  ought to have,   for  under   all   circumstances  differences    are  a   matter  of  money on one side  or  the  other.   We  have always held the best   results  can  only follow from a governments developing such conditions as create plenty  of   work���������such  as   capital hunting for  labor, without  restrictions  on   either  side.

The Nelson Tribune says the printing  offices of the province could be purchased for #500,000, and they pay the  provincial government a tax in -the  neighborhood of $5,000.- Personal property is not taxed for more than 50 per  cent, so the offices are not assessed for  more than .$250,000. As the government  tax on personal property is but one half  of one per cent, they pay just one quarter of what the Tribune estimates,.  $1,250 a year. If the personal property  of British Columbia was taxed as it is in  other provinces, there would be-no trouble in letting oil'the mines at less than  half the present taxation, which would  set them all going and hasten the development of the country.  ody Wants,  Steve Bailey, who at one time was  connected with the Payne mine, is on a  visit to East Kootenay, where he has  some mining property.

The Mine Owners'  Memorial.  , Our Sandon readers will remember  little Flerbie Clifl'e met with a bad accident to his eye last fall, in having some  mortar thrown into it by another boy.  He was up to the 1st of last month under the. cure of- Dr. Power, this city.  Under, the doctor's directions he was  not sent away for special treatment until the 1st of last month. Me has since  been treated by Dr. Burin nn, a leading  specialist of Toronto, an operation having been' performed' Rome weeks ago  that will likely end in restoring sight to  the little fellow. It is a feather -in Dr.  Power's cap when the specialist says  that dnrint* all the time the boy was  under Dn Power's care he was as well  looked-after as he could have been by  himself, and-that nothing would have  been gained hy performnic: the operation sooner. ; We. make these : remarks  merely to. show the public of Sandon  and vicinity that in Dr. Power they  have a capable and careful medical  man.  Even to the present the memorial addressed by the   Mine  Owners' association to-the Provincial government is tJte  subject of much  newspaper comment,,  ''and   the   criticism   of many writers of  note.    There is no questioning  the fact  as much care in drawing up   the document   was   not    exercised   as   should  have been-in a document   oi"J'such   iui-  porlanco.   In   the   first place as 1-Jon.  - Mr. {Turner points out the memorialists  statement of the charges for provincial  government on tho  provincial  revenue  are excessive.    This has  resulted  from  the fact.the -writers of that document  were not fully lamiliar with provincial  finance.   Mr.   Bogle   is   credited   with  making sweeping clearances in hitf criticism.   Though his reply is sweeping in  many icspeots, much  of  his   clearance  leaves only greater   confusion   behind.  Ho says the difference  in  results  from  the eight hour law 1G per cent is   borne  equally between   the   owners   and   the  men.   This is not at all what the memorial represents���������it shows that though  the law reduced the wages of the men  by 25 cents a day in most localities, the  difference in work to the owners reduced  wages considered increases  the cost of  output   by   JG per   cent'net.    Mr. Mc-  Bride also forgo(s to notice ihat in the  other countries he has named as having  an   night'hour   law.it is one without  penalties,   where   hours of  labor   and  compensation are adjusted between cm ���������  plover and employee, as may be agreed  on with- advantage   to   both.   There is  no questioning the   fact  an  eight hour  day is a step in  advance,' but   the  destruction of personal right to do as employees like with their labor is as much  , a step to the rear.   Mr.  Bogle further  says the scale fees for right to piospeqt,  recording-claims, assessment work, &c\,  are very heavy in B.C., hut the owners  get compensation in   better   projection  to life and limb, and better   laws generally.   This, however, is  not the point,  as is intimated in  the memorial.   The  fact is that this better protection might  follow, and   lowered   cost  of   items referred   to   if   the government assessed  equitably   in   other   instances.     Take  personal   property   the province over,  land and improvements  outside of  incorporated    places,   wild   lands,   &c���������  they are all assessed at about one third  value, and taxed hut' one half of one per  cent, on such assessment.   This is   not  more than one fifth of   the   taxation of  realty in incorporated places, and similar  effects 'in   other provinces, where  the rates  are   collected  by municipalities.   If this taxation was as  high as it  should be, the protection referred to by  Mr.   Bogle   might    be  afforded,   with  heavy reductions in the expenses complained of by the memorial.  In all of. this criticism, however, a  few important fads are overlooked by  the critics. Our mine owners are depending wholly on borrowed capital,  and that the advancement of the whole  country 'is depending wholly on the  working of the mines and the opening  un of new properties. If thpn dividends  are not paid to lenders, capital cannot  ���������begot for new workings, and without  it all other industries must languish,  and the country must recede .rather  than progress. It is not so much a'  question of what is technically'defensible as regards the treatment of the  owners as what is best for the development of the country that tbe government should take into most serious  consideration..

By a day's work you may turn out  a stylish skirt in pique, linen or denim. Such a skirt is comfort itself,  and being easy to make and inexpensive there is no reason why every woman should not be plentifully supplied with them. To avoid similarity the skirts may be trimmed in  numerous pretty ways. Rows of  braid or embroidery can encircle the  lower part of lhe skirt, put on perhaps iu graduated widths or in serpentine waves. if you arc stout a  more becoming effect would be attained by running the trimming up and  down.' Let it follow the seams, and  put corresponding rows in between.  A very pretty way is to run the  trinmiingdown the front seams to  within six inches of the bottom, then  turn it backward, extending 'it  around the skirt, but not ' crossing  the front breadth. Two or even  three rows look particularly well. In  that' instance , let each turning form  a. hollow square instead of'merely a  corner.  White is always the daintiest material to use, but colors make up  smartly. Natural-colored linen is extremely popular this season. Trimmed, with itself or white the results  are very pleasing. Bands of dark  blue, of red or bright plaid are  charmingly effective and easy to apply, while they have the additional  advantage of being inexpensive. Always shrink the goods before using.  fiOBBIM ROTAL PALACES.  MYSTERIOUS       MANNER  WHICH    PRESENTS    DISAPPEAR.  IN  VALUABLE HINTS.  '^ ....... ���������  A delicious hot weather dessert is  lemon jelly and soft custard. But  you want your' jelly a semi-solid,  quivering mass, not hard enough to  cut, piled in the centre of a thick,  soft custard. Too stiff jelly and too  soft custard will spoil it.  In stuffing a chicken for baking,  where there is a lot of hungry children asking for second helps of everything including "dressing and gravy"  make a generous supply of the stuffing. Fill the cavities in the body  as usual, then make an incision in  the skin between the thigh and the  body, on each side; loosen the skin  from the flesh round the breast and  down the leg and put in as . much  stuffing as you can crowd in pressing  it close clown to the breast and legs.  Put another extra portion 4n the inside of the wings before tying them  to the body. Bake in a covered pan  and  baste frequently.  Figs, dates, raisins and prunes are  apt to be regarded as luxuries rather  than as rich food" substances of a  most digestible kind when freed from  skin and seeds. Nuts are rich in fat  and also furnish muscular energy;  thoy are a form of very wholesome  food, with which, however, must be  taken fruit or other bulky foods to  balnnce the concentration.  Cure for Rats.���������Bait traps with  sunflower seeds and rats and mice  will soon disappear, says one who  knows,  They Are  Offered For  Sale in  the  Second-Hand Shops of Europe.  A few weeks ago a Parisian bric-a-  brac dealer sold to one of his customers two solid,silver caskets lined  with purple satin. They fetched a  fancy price on account of the fact  that their workmanship was of the  very finest -kind.  The dealer was quite satisfied with  the prices he -had obtained for the  caskets until he came to hear that  one of them had at some time been  presented to the late Tsar of Russia,  and tho other had been the property  of the Pope.  It has long been o. mystery how so,  many Royal presents���������presents to'  and from Royal tics���������find their way  into public sales. The two .caskets  just mentioned, for instance, were  undoubtedly the 'property of the late  Tsar and Pope respectively. It is  impossible to suppose that cither  the Tsar oi\ the Pope gave their  casket away, because such an act  would be a.-gr.oss insult to the donor, and the supposition that cither  of these exalted personages sold his  casket is absolutely ridiculous.  At the same time, robberies from  Royal palaces are unheard of, and  it is very doubtful if anyone having  access to Royal presents would dare  to steal any. or supposing they did,  would bo able to dispose of the articles without exciting grave suspicion. Then, ho,w do Royal presents  find their''way into dealers' hands,  as they undoubtedly often do ?  It might be supposed that the Royal presents sold from time to time  are mere frauds, intended to draw  fancy prices from the credulous. But  such is not always the case; numbers of perfectly \,  GENUINE ROYAL   PRESENTS  xnay. occasionally    be met  with     in  shops, particularly on the Continent.  An English gentleman had on two  occasions picked up on the Continent presents which have been the  property- of members of our Royal  family. In Vienna lie purchased for  a few shillings a silver inkstand,  which he recognised at once as having belonged; 'to.- the King, then  Prince of Wales'. To put the identity  of the inkstand beyond all doubt, it  was submitted to the Prince, who  also recognized it\ as'a present  which had been made him by a member pf the family of King George of  Greece, .but .which he was not, till  then, aware he had lost. ,  How it passed from Sandringham  to Vienna was a mystery, not that  over much trouble was given to  seeking an explanation.  On the other occasion the same  gentleman bought in Paris a small  gold or silver-gilt salt-cellar belonging to a set of six;presented to our  late Sovereign by the Empress Eugenie mrtiiy-years. ago. The mysteriously disappeared salt-cellar had,  before being recovered, been replaced  by another specially made to complete the : set, which was, however,  hardly ever used by the late Queen.  These instances are sufficient to  show that not all the "royal presents^" offered' for sale are trifles  manufactured specially to trap the  unwary collector, as some few very  likely are .;. and it, is probable that  many genuine Royal gifts are bartered to and by dealers, but, not  possessing distinguishing marks, escape recognition-as what they originally were.-        '  Some years ago a London dealer  became possessed of a  SILVER GILT CIGAR BOX  which had been a present from the  Emperor William I. of. Germany to  his ally King Humbert. A very  significant fact in this matter was  that all the precious st'mes with  which the box had evidently been  set, when it must have formed a  present worthy of its royal donoi  and recipient, had been removed, although no attempt. had been made  to erase the royal crests engraved  on the inside of the lid.  The theory of robbery in this  case is  one  which most readily oc  curs, but it seems strange that any  such robbery should have been kept  secret, and that robbers committing  such a crime would have the temerity to sell the box which bore proof  of its origin that would, we should  fancy, be a most valuable clue, in  tracing tho robbers. In fact, it is  incredible that the most' blundering  thief would attempt to sell- such a  box after having extracted the stones  without in .some way effacing the  marks which proclaimed it to have  been Royal property. , We believe  that after being in the possession  of the dealer for a few days the box  was purchased by a member of the.  Italian Embassy in London, which  is in itself significant.   :_^   RAILROAD   MEN'S  NERVES.  Most Accidentc    Due to  Neurosis,  Says  Dr.  Scott.  Two or' three important points  '������������������were brought out at the recent annual meeting of the British Medical  Association. Dr. Alexander Scott,  of Glasgow, made the alarming assertion that most railway accidents  were due to neurosis of railway men,  caused by the nerve tension" of their  duties. To prove this he cited many  cases- which had come under his own  observation.  A man who had been promoted  from fireman to engineer soon complained of dyspepsia. The usual remedies failed and he sent the man to  a consulting physician. The latter  also failed ��������� to cure the man. Then  the engineer went through a whole  course of quack medicine without any  success. It was only after a big  smash-up on the railway; as a result  of which the man was dismissed,  that he finally got well. He had  simply been suffering from nervous  tension.  Another man who had been working on a farm became a railway servant and afterwards a signal man.  The nervous tension Was so great  that it brought on headache, weariness and insomnia. He ultimately  recovered and is now an excellent  workman, but not a signal man.  Another- case cited.'that.;that of a  signal man who was found on the  floor-.in���������������������������convulsions.. When he was  able to speak he said he never entered the signal box without feeling  that he was on the brink of a precipice and that sonic day a disaster  would occur.  Another man who was put in tho  signal box after doing general railway work developed an acute mania  in the form of an .affection of the  nervous cells.  Dr. Scott referred to the/ Slough  accident. In this case the cngincer  declarcd that he did not know how  he had run past the danger signal.  The jury found that the engineer had  been afflicted for a moment with  aberration of the mind, yet this  same man-, Iind conveyed over loO -  000,000 passeny.TS without  a single  mi.Svrikc. . ���������'",",'���������'��������� '���������  ���������Turning to the question of driving  electric cars Dr. Scott stated that, a  Glasgow man who was used to driving horses was put on an electric  vehicle. He caused a smash-up hi  which one person was killed and several injured. It was proved that the  man had not tasted drink, and 'trie  case was one of nervous tension.  The doctor thought it was time to  consider whether more attention  should not be paid to the temperament of railway men, and he deplored the fact that the medical pro-  fessi6n was so poorly represented at  Inquiries in regard to the causes of  railway accidents.

A conscientious sense of  duty has impelled him to "spread a  certain good work among his friends  and neighbors.' The work in question is the work of Dodd's Kidney  Pills.  Some time ago Mr. Colleaux was  cured of Backache. He had it ��������� for  years. Though he didn't know it,'  his kidneys were affected, and it was  his kidneys that, caused him so much  misery.  But lie found relief. He did more,  he found a positive cure. He read  that Dodd's'Kidney Pills Cure Backache. So they do ; they've cured  thousands of cases of it, simply because they act on the Kidneys "with  such splendid effect and thus get at  the cause of that fearful disablement.  So Frank is spreading the good  tidings among his friends as fast  as he can. If he meets a man suffering with Backache he tells him right  straight what is really the-matter  with him and recommends Dodd's  Kidney Pills. In this way he is the  means of helping many a poor victim of Kidney Disease who might  never have understood that in Dodd's  Kidney Pills ho has a sure escape  from his affliction.  "It gives me a great amount of  pleasure," says Mr. Colleaux, "to  recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills to  all my. neighbors and,friends.

Belgian engineer residing in  England has discovered a method by  which smoke can be" turned into  light. In operating his device the  inventor collects the smoke from any  kind of a fire and forces it into a  receiver. It is then saturated with  hydro-carburet, and a brilliant light  results. The method is simplicity itself, and its discoverer is now at  work upon a simple apparatus which  can be attached to any chimney to  bring about the desired result, so  that at night-time, ' instead of a  dense cloud of black smoke being  emitted from the chimney-tops a  bright light will take its place. The  apparatus is , already at work in  London, and its general adoption is  probable,  and highly desirable..  Minnrd's Linimenr cures Gnroet/n cows.  SEEKING REST.

Mayor  Lovatt- received a letter the  other "day signed by the "acting" aldermen,   and   written   by  "acting" clerk  > Lyons, "requiring" him to call ;i special  ' meeting   of   the .council.   A   previous  document "notiiied" hi in   to   call  one.  These expressions are however the ones  used on the "other side," and Mr.Lyons  may be accordingly pardoned tor- using;  them here.   The last document set out'  the proposed meeting was to consider a  reduction of city officials and ways'und  means to pay them  salaries   how-   due.  This question of ways   and   means   did  not bother' the  aldermen a few weeks  ago, when   they, promised   to   pay Mr.  Lyons $10 a month lriprc than a competent man could have been got for whose  experience would have  helped   them a  great deal in avoiding coming breakers.  As however his appointment is illegal,  and his continuance in oflice for evident  reasons doubly so, in a court of law he  cannot secure a judgment   for   present  services, wo presume it matters little to  tasoayers what salary he may be promised.   Nor did it ever  concern   them  when they wanted to Day him an' extra  $100 for "re-writing" the city books.  Another matter was to consider means  to collect an alleged shortage from ex-  collector Lilly. If shortages there be,  which'Mr. Lilly denies, it' will -be in  order for Alderman Jalland" to put his  hand in his pocket and make them up.  To give sureties undue advantage in  this way is why they are by law debarred from "holding seats at council  boards.   ,  ' The aldermen who are constantly  sending these missive's to the mayor  may as well save their wind for their  porridge. The city solicitor has advised  several otthe aldermen they are violating the law sitting in council; their acts  are as a consequence illegal, and Mayor  Lovatt does not propose to be a party  to perpetuating illegalities, that will  only make the trouble at the end almost  inextricable for some one. These-aldermen know equally well the public will  not pay licenses and taxes to parties  who do not legally represent the people;  they know equally well also the longer  they run as a council the greater will  the liabilities of the place become, the j  more involved will be the real estate,  and the more certain endless litigation.  Tin' best plan for them to take is resign  in a body,' and .hand the' management  over to the government. ��������� This has got  to come,'and the sooner it is done, the  lighter will be the consequences upon  the people. By'the first of January,  the School Board will make a demand  for an immediate $500, and if the council remains in existence and is without,  funds, the trustees will.vonly take over  the assessment rolls "and collect the  mnney themselves. This may be averted by an immediate resignation of the  council. '  The American Boy.  The American Boy Mining Co. have a  large staff"of men working in the mine  and the Black Hawk, one of the group,  which was opened up some time ago  with prospect work is to be developed.  The force will he. increased in a short  time, as more men will be needed before  winter sets in. The outlook at present all through the mine is very encouraging to the management. The new  tunnel of the Black Hawk is to bo driven  so as to catch the main lead - from the  American Boy on the other side of the  mountain, and by so doing the ore will  be brought through the new workings,  so as to be handy to the Last Chance  tram. This means the two properties  will be worked together, and all work  will be done ni the long tunnel, which  will go through the top of the mountain,  and will be, when completed, one of the  longest in the Slocan. This plan of  development will save time and money.  On the Black Hawk there have been,  some fine samples of ore taken from the  ore bodies or outcrops, and which are  well defined. , There is no doubt that-  considerable mineral"will be taken out  in the new working, and if found in  large' bodies it will- likely be blocked  out.1 ",',-. . ���������.    -' .-���������-,    ,i    '���������  ���������'���������  A slight accident happened to the  Ivanhoe tramway a few days ago.
