 -fiii  857'���������  'M  w  u..  YOL. 1.    1ST0. 7.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1897.  PRICE FIYE CENTS;  Tl  y  o  The Yigorous  Commencement of a  Yery Promising Town.  Passing through on the K. & S. R. a  year ago about a dozen miles from S m-  don, one would see, where Whitewater  ���������was called out by the brnkcman, a  couple of buildings and a half a dozen  or so of persons anxious to get a  glimpse at the travellers in search of  wealth in the ' western world on the  train. To-day there are here three excellent hotels, two gener il stores, and  an assay office, an extensive laundry  and bath house, and a most complete  ���������saw mill, some comfortable residences  ���������whilst the hammer and saw are heard  in every direction making additions  , to the place. There are no less than  seven shipping mines that promise to  rank among the best in the 'Slocan  ^country, which, of course, implies a  very great deal.  -rS?he town is on the old Hughes' trail  from Three Forks to Kaslo about half  way, and was in days past kiiown as  Bell's camp, named after the brothers  John and James Bell whorankTamongst  the pioneers of the Slocan country,  John having cut down the first trees  preparing the way for roads out of  Kaslo and Nelson. This was, of course,  years before the country had any railways when Hughes' pack mules' were  the chief freighters in and out of the  country. Mr. Bell takes mu-;h pleasure  in relating the pioneering incidents of  those daj s, and never fails to say the  .country owes much to the energy ,mag-  nanimity and enterprise of Mr. G. W,  Hughes. Mr. Bell credits him with  more than any one else in developing  enterprises of early days. In tho fires,  snow slides etc., he lost heavily, but  was ever ready with pluck and energy  to take hold afresh. The construction  of the K. & S.B.. has, however, changed  * all this���������all old things are new passed  away and all things have become new.,  The'mule packing to Kaslo is a thing  of the past, and mines are springing up,  in every quarter because of the less  expensive marketing of the mineral.  In addition to operating their saw  mill with its capacity of 10,000 feet per  day,they are ^operating considerably in  mining.  The Bell Bros.' are owners of the  townsite, which will yet prove a means  of wealth to them. Like most other  Kootenay towns,the place is surrounded by mounta;ns, but the valley is of  sufficient area to allow the growth of a  large place. Ten thousand people  could locate themselves here without  forcing one another Kip the hill sides.  The hills when reached, however, are  so steep that sufficient snow never  lodges on them to occasion the dreaded  elides. The people are wisely one and  all very conservative���������they are opposed to booming, and do not want to  aee a man or business locate in the  town that cannot find trade reasonably-  profitable.  Mr. Wright funs the Whitewater  laundry, a large institution, bath  rooms, and a bakery, the whole keeping him quite busy.  :' Geo. Irish has just located in the  barbering business, and thinks his  field quite promising.  Nevin and Bell are the pioneer merchants,' and keep the post office. They  have found trade so much on the increase they are forced to erect a large  new store. H. C. Taylor is the second  general merchant in the place.  Isaac Waldron is the pioneer hotel  man, having located when the K. & S.  R. was building. He runs the Jackson  House, a well appointed institution on  the hill, which is now beimg neatly repainted  shipment was the first that ever left  the town of Kaslo. The next year was  a most trying one on Mr. Eaton The  price of silver went down with a crash,  and to cap all, he lost heavily in the  failure of a Spokane bank in which he  kept bis own account. Of late days,  bowever,our Canadian banking institutions have opened th'eir eyes to the  importance of securing the trade of  this country, and they have taken  possession of it accordingly. To the  present the company has spent about  $70,000 in improvements and develop  ment work. They have a complete  wagon road from the mine to tlie  station and have an extra, forty men,  over their regular mining operatives,  at work on wagon road extensions,  buildings, etc. In a short time their  mining force will be increased to seventy men. The mine has now six tunnels of a total length of 2,400 feet. To  the present they have shipped about  2,400 tons of ore averaging about ?52  per ton. The company are about to  build a fifty ton concentrator which  will afford them every facility for  making the best out of their excellent  property.'  The Ibex is shipping about two cars  a week, and at present has some thirty  of Bartlett Bros, mules packing the  nine miles distance. It is the intention of the company to put in a- joint  tram antl wagon road to overcome the  cost'of packing. The company have  at present about twelve operatives.  The Charleston is owned by Winnipeg parties and has about a dozen men  at work.   It has shipped a few  ii ?  cars, of  The Sunset is but in its infancy. 'It  has shipped a few cars lately. It was  owned by Americans, and is said to  havo changed hands lately. - The Wellington has bcen-asbipperfor ycars,but  is not operated with any great regularity by its Ottawa owners.  The Northern Belle ranks amongst  the best of properties. It has shipped  heavily all along as a . raw hider; but  now has its wagon road about completed, and will hereafter ship summer  as well as winter. The company are  also erecting a large concentrator to  take advantage of all that is in the  business.  Tlie noted Lucky Jim towards Bear  Lake is also building a concentrator  for its own requirements.  The Hillside under development, is  showing'up well, and promises to be a  heavy shipper at an early day.  Besides these there arc are the Jackson, the Elkliorn properties, the Ophir  and sevcial other very promising properties under development. All told  there are now over 300 miners in  camp with the prospect of doubling the  force in a very short time.  The people one and all   are  clamoring for a butcher,  and   if  one  should  locate he would doubtless find nrofit  abb employment.  -Like many other places in the Kootenay country, McGuigan is making a  rapid stride ahead this spring. The  place is so elevated there is no possible  danger from floods or slides of ;.ny  diameter.' There is not a vast area of  building site, but yet there is room on  the side hill for a great many business  places and residences.  Mr. Glutaberger keeps a general  store, and the post office, and is doing  a good trade. A. W. McMillan keeps  the hotel on the hill, and A. Haller has  a comfortable house for travelleis on  the plateau below., He reports a brisk  business. Altogether the place has  thirteen mines, nearly' all in the south  hills, that are shipping or have shipped  in their time creating considerable  busiuess. As these mines- are limited  to the K. & S. road the traffic of all  centres in Kaslo. When the C. P. R.  luiild to Whitewater, as they are likely  to, and the K. & S. extends their line  lo Slocan City, as is probable, all this  is will be changed. '  At present the shipping mines  arc  The Great Western, with 20 miners  Tho Washington, 65  The Rambler. 30  The Dardanelles, 30  The Antoinc, 24  The Red Fox, 10  with   great   promises    from     several  more.  .Trade With Japan.  WANT   MACHINERY   FREE.  Mr. McKim is moving the W7hite-\  water hotel he owns from the street on  which he built it before the survey.  He"too is refitting and' when his improvements are completed,be will have  a very comfortable and cosy establishment for all guests.  MoLellan and Borenc are erecting  a new two and one-half story hotel  :2$x50. They will have it running in a  few day. They intend . to make it  strictly first class in all its interests.  E. C. Pease js the ever accommodating K. & S. R. agent.  '. Mrs. Bertram.a very intelligent lady,  does considerable press correspondence, for outside papers ; W. Et. Win-  stead, an assayer; and M. D. Clements  does a great deal of prospecting.  The residents yield supremacy to  Sandon as a mining, camp; but they  place their own town, second on the  '$������$, and if prospects count for any thing  rihere ;s much ground for their; contention. The Whitewater, for the most  part owned by J. C. Eaton, is one of  the first shippers from that section  haying exported ore in 1S92. It is said  Mr. Eaton bought , his interest at a  fabulously low price, some naming  $200 as the sum. Be this as it may  Mr. Eaton is a very shrewd, intelligent  busine������s man, und is certain to make  ja pot put of his possession.     His   first  Kootenay   Mining  Men   to Petition the  Government.  At a meeting of the Kootenay Mining Protective association in Kaslo on  Thursday,- it was decided by resolution  of Scott McDonald, seconded by J. L.  Montgomery :  "That a memorial be prepared and  sent around to the "provincial mining  companies and owners forsignatures,  praying the Honorable the Comptroller of Customs to place  "Ore Cars,  "Sinking Pumps, <  ���������   "Rapid Hoisting Engines,  "Crushers and  "Rolls  on the free list, as the quality of those  manufactured in Canada is not of such  a character as to induce mine owners  to use thorn. These articles are not  used for purposes other than mining,  and we emphatically desire to express  our opinion, based on experience, that  until the ; Canadian manufacturers  make suitable machinery to meet this  demand these articles shouldnot be  taxed."-���������Kootenaian.  Mr. George Anderson, of Toronto,  who has been appointed a special Canadian commercial agent to Japan by  the Dominion government, and who, it  is expected, will reach Vancouver  about the 28th or 29th instant, en route  for Japan, has issued the following  letter to manufactures and others on  the subject of his mission :  My Dear Sir,���������I have been appointed by the Dominion Government a commissioner to visit Japan,  with a view of ascertaining from per  sonal investigation to what extent,  and. in what manner an increase  in trade between the Dominion of  Canada and Japan may be brought  about. Before leaving I am desirous  of obtaining from manufacturers and  others interested in the export trade of  Canada special l .formation regarding  tbo products they are prepared^to ofler  that oountry. If there are any lines of  goods which you think advisable to  export, will you beSkind enough to  furnish me with a minute description  of tho same, manner of putting up>  form, sizes, etc., etc., (photographs  where possible) and also the lowest  prices at which you will be willing to  sell for export. All of which information will be treated as absolutely confidential. The time has arrived when  Cadadian manufacturers r< quire to  reach out for wider fields, and do their  fair share in supplying the ivorid's  markets with Canadian products. Such  goods, the products or manufactures of  Japan, as yeu may wioh to import, the  original cost of which you wouid like  to find out, I shall be glad to report  upon. It will be my special mission  to say what the probabilities and possibilities arc for the extension of trade  between the two countries. May I ask  your hearty co-operation and assistance th t my mission may prove successful. Thanki-g you in anticipation and hoping to be favored with an  early reply, I am  GEO. ANDERSON.  Commissioner, Toronto.  that country and returncd-v.-itb $50,000  dug out of the banks of the river. He  took his fortune to Switzerland, and  left $50 for his license in Canada.  The great difficulty tlie country  labors under is the lack of definite information. It takes a year to get a  man into that country and baek again.  Many' adventurers have left their  bones on the sands the3r went to exploit. Some . died of s'arvation, for  food is difficult to obtain. Some died  from exposure.  If public opinion were expressed in  favor of a royalty of 10, 15 or 20 per  cent, on all gold taken away from Canadian streams in the Yukon country  the- government would be largely  guided by it. The impression is that  public opinion will assist the govern-  | ment in reaching a conelusivi), and the  feeling here is that some action shou d  be taken in time for next session.  THE  HUSH TO KLONDIKE.  Seattle, Wash., July 19.���������The detachment of mounted police from the  Northwest Territories, who passed  through Seattle . on their way to the  Klondike gold region two years two  years ago, struck it rich. T\f^nty-five  guards returned n the Portland with  gold amounting to S200,C00. The other  15 remained in Alaska engaged in  mining. ������������������ ��������� ���������  One hundred men took passage on  the steamer Alki,' most of them to  take what is called the-overland trip  to Klondike from Juneau. They. j>o_15_  miles further by water to Dyca, then  over the mountain passes, down la Ices  Linderman and Bennett to the Yukon  river and from that river to tho new  discoveries.  Among the crowd are many well  known men who have long been identified with the growth of the northwest.  An immense crowd was at the dock  and when the Alki threw oil' her lines  and pulled into the bay thousands of  the people gave cheers and shouts and  bade her God speed.  CAPITAL  GOSSIP.  Dr. Coulter, of Aurora,  the  New Deputy  Postmaster-General.  Ottawa, Out., July 19.���������At Saturday's'  cabinet meeting, Lieut.-Col. Whitoj  deputy postmaster-general, was superannuated, and Dr. Robert, M. Coulter,  of Aurora, Ont., was appointed iu his  place. Dr. Coulter, ex'-M:P.. has been  appointed postoflice inspector lor New  Brunswick.  In an interview with your correspondent the secretary of state said  that there could be no truth in the  cabled report that the British admiralty had declined to accept ihe type of  vessel designed by Peterson, Tate & Oo.  for the new fast Atlantic service.  There were some objections at first to  the turret ships,- but these must have  been withdrawn, because as late as  May the British authorities wrote out  suggesting some improvements in  some of the lines of the type proposed,  which suggestions were acctpted.  Much Work to be  Pushed on  the  Reco.  On Wednesday Mr. Harris returned  from his visit of two months duration  to several points in Eastern Canada  and the United States; but more particularly to his old home near Washing-  ington. His trip was designed for  recreation solely, but becausp of the  ousiness connrctions of his company,  at many points in the country more  or less business during the visit was  inevitable. He found considerable  wild cat stock in the hands of Toronto  and Ottawa people; but it isonlyner-es-  sary to say none of it was from tlie Sandon section ;it all covered,like Confederate bills, anotker point of Kootenay that  some people never tire of booming.  Sandon, however, is standing on its  merus and is coming up all around,  where proper investigation has been  mado. ,  lie found the silver problem a bone  of contention still across the lines, but  it is one of so many intricacies, it is  very difficult for any man to express a  safe opinion on it:  Crops in the Western States are especially good, that is wheat and somo of  the coarse grains, though corn is very  indifferent.  His company arc now commencing  operations in earnest. In the course  of a few days they will commence the  construction of a concentrator, with  a nominal capacity of 120 tons, but  one that will actually be 30 tons greater.  A tramway has been surveyed, and  work will also be commenced on it  at once so as t'e have both completed at the earliest possible moment.  The two will call for a great many extra men. When these contemplated  improvements are completed,thcy will  be able to employ fully 300 miners on  tho Reco, or quite as many as were employed as this point a year ago by all  tlie mines in operation. -  Mr. Harris was pleased to note the  progress made by the town in his absence. Some business concerns are now  running that were not projected before  he went away, and'others at that -time  barely "commenced are now well under  way. All this boars evidence of a  stability here and that secured without  booming. All things considered, it is  not unlikely the pay roll of the coming  fall and winter will be. nearly three  times what it was a year ago. and this  wilbmake'a good trade for the established business concerns.  In a short time they are going to  utilise Sandon creek as additional fire  protection. With a double system, if  the people only purchase the necessary  hose, we should have complete immunity from fires���������as good a system  as demands can possibly call for.  S-r-  RESPONSIBILITY.  Check Mate Them.  Sandon  like   every   other  place   is  bound to suffer more or less   from   the  pranks of irresponsible- men ; but   all  citizens should do   what   they can   towards minimising the injury by sitting  on the cause. . An instance is  brought  to our   notice   of  a   hotel   hanger-on  without an office or anything else  who  tried to unload some  property   on   an  unsuspecting   stranger,   .in   which   a  friend, was   interested   by   doing   his  best to depreciate   the   value   of  all  other saleable properties but his own.  Now thisshould be discouraged by   all  parties who are interested in the   welfare of the place.   It goes withoufsay-  ing that there are some properties here  as elsewhere better than   others,   and  some even worthless;   but that   is   no  excuse for any one, much more a man  who is himself irresponsible,   decrying  all other marketable properties.     The  man who wishes  the place   well   will  simply tell the naked truth about what  he has to offer himself,  letting   otheis  work out their own destiny.     This   is  best all around, of course all intending  purchasers should look well   into   the  character of   the   salesman   they   are  dealing with, and the merits   of   their  intending   purchase    as    defined    by  capable men; but then   all  intending  pure asers are not shrewd and suspecting.   To nieet   their  deficiencie-i   the  citizens should do  what they   can   in  the way of protecting the name of our  mining   camp,       Generally   speaking  established,   reputable   brokers    have  gone to considerable   expense advertising the country, and se far   as   it   can  fairly be done they should be protected  by public sentiment and other tangible  agencies.  I  ���������Hg&m  LONDIKE'S IIPUKERS.  Lucky Mounted  Policemeu.  Scandinavian Settlers fcr the Northwest.  Ottawa, Ont., July 19.���������Au official of  the department of immigration started  from Montreal to-day in charge of a  party of'.Scandinavians' who intend  going to western Canada to report on  its advantages as a home for their  compatriots. They will comprise a  delegation from New Hampshire and  Connecticut., On their way they will  be joined by delegations from Illinois,  Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Michigan. Some  of these have already decided to locate  in the Northwest, and tneir families  will accompany them. The party will  number from 50 to 60 souls. The  Scandinavian colonies in the Northwest have made rapid progress since  they were established about "four years  ago, and reports that have been sent to  their friends have encouraged those  who started west to-ds.y.  Government   Contemplating    a   Royalty  On Gold���������Aliens   May Be  Barred.  Toronto, Ont., July 19���������The Globe's  Ottawa dispatch.says : "The reports  from the Youkon country of the enormous richness' of the placer gold deposits in . the Klondike districts have  districts ha"e moved the government  to consider what steps should be taken  to protect the interest of Canada.  Whatever dispute there may be as to  the exact boundary line between Canada and Alaska, there is no question  about the rich Klondike gold fields  being altogether, and clearly -in Canada. With this the case, the question  arises, whether Americans or other  foreigners should be allowed to come:  in there and take away millions of dollars without leaving anything in the  country or contributing anything to  the public revenue.  Iu the United States- no one but citizens of the States can hold a mining  claim. Here the Canadian government issues licenses to anybody on  payment of a paltry fee. A short  while ago a Swiss, whose earning capacity  was a dollar   a day, went into  MclYor-Tyndall in Town.  Mclvor-Tyndall, the mind reader,  while satisfying the curiosity of some  of our adult population on Wednesday  created an amount of amusement for  somo of our younger population. The  test was this: Mr. A. D. Williams hid  a small flag in Bartlett's office. The  professor was to get into a wagon at  at the ������ther end of the town with Mr.  Williams, take hold of W's. hand,  drive the rig blind folded, and when  he reached the building in which the  flag was hid. jump out of the rig, and  by the aid of the hand connection find  it. He accomplished his feat and was  then to drive back still blind folded to  the place where he started." Hestarted  the return trip, but on account, of the  narrowness of the street'ran up on the  sidewalks several times, nearly upsetting the -wagon,before he reached his destination. He eventually ,however,com-  pleted his test to the satisfaction of all  interested. Tlie professor accomplish  es wonderful things with his mental  telepathy. An explanation is difficult;  but the secret is that he reads the minds  of those whose hands he takes, through  magnetic connection. Tho act requires  great concentration, of will.  Bought the fiismark Group.  One of the shrewdest^ and quickest  deals in the slocan has just been completed by Mr. P. P. Sherwood of Spokane, a mining engineer from the  school of mines, Columbia college. Mr.  Sherwood being among the first to hear  the rich strke, and 'first to take advantage of it. This propertv is situated on Briges creek comprising three  claims located by Charles Samyson,  Otto Wallman, Joe Casazza, arid Alex,  Ruffalo. The bond was for $35,000,  usual terms.  Mr. Sherwood has certainly secured  a promising property and before long  it is hoped it will be a shipper.  He Thinks the Manitoba Ministers  Very Discourteous.  Toronto, July 17th.���������The Montreal  correspondent of the World says : "A  missionary who has reached here from  Manitoba talks freely regarding Mgr.  Merry Del Val's visit to the West. His  Excellency, the priest declares, was  greatly grieved at the discourtesy  shown him by the Manitoba ministers.  There was in fact, a total absence of  that loyalty and dignity which Mgr.  Merry Del Val expected from the Ministers of the Crown. He found that  tho Provincial ministers knew nothing  whatever of diplomatic etiquette. In  fact after premising certain concession's would, be made, nothing whatever  was done,-.and His Excellency has returned to Rome indignant."  The same writer says : "It now turns  out that the Liberal members of the  Quebec Legislature, addressed a petition  to the Pope for a delegate in December  last. This address informed the Pope  that an election was probable in February or March; that in the election of  1S96 the majority of tlie clergy intervened in the contest to tho detriment  of tho Liberal party ; that'this inter,  vention was still more general at the  Federal elections on June 23 and it  continues : "The undersigned believe  in their soul and conscience that this  intervention in these last fights was  inopportune, unjustified, disastrous to  the prestige of the cle'ry aud the efficacy of their authority, and we regret  to say, it gives to the-enemies ol tho  clergy an opportunity to assert that  the Catholic is not able, like the' Protestant, freely to exercise his rights as a  citizen, following his judgement and  conscience. Tlie influence of Canadian  clergy upon our Catholic population at  large, the signers would not have circumscribed. They would rather see  this influence expand.'.'  The C. P. R. and the Le Rio.  Mr. Shaughnessy, when shown a  Rossland dispatch, denied that he had  ever said to Messrs. Turner and Black-  stock that the Canadian Pacific Railway could not go into Rossland to  handle smelter ores until the Crow's  Nest Pass road was completed. What  he told them was that it conld not supply them with coal and coke until the  Crow's Nest Pass line ' was built into  the districts where the mines are located. The smelter situation from his  standpoint is summed up as follows :  The Le Roi mine owers proposed building a smelter at Robson or thereabout.  They claimed that Mr. Heinze, who  now operates a road from Rasslond to  Robson, would not give a low enough  rate for the carriage of ore to make it  pay them to build at Robson. They  now ask the Canadian Pacific Railway  to build another road paralleling the  present tracks and give them a lower  rate. The Canadian Pacific Railway  would prefer to see the matter arranged  with Mr. Heinze without ��������� resorting to  such an expedient, and does not consider itself a fact in the question at  present.  Condensed   for   Busy  People.  The McCunes have taken up their  $20,000 bond on the Lexengton, Sunny  Side fraction and Pesey on Slocan  lake.  The Goose mine, about five miles  from Three Forks, has reduced the  foree of men from 15 to seven until  winter. The property is in excellent  shape for a good winter's run.  The Maggie Smith, on Four Mile  creek, is now under development, a'  number of men having commenced this  week. The showing- so far is satisfactory to the proprietors. It is owned  by Sancton people���������J. W. Brechtel, G.  J. Brechtel, T. F. Smith and W. Farney.  R. H. Farren has relocated the Elsie ,  May claim, which adjoins the. English  and French group, about two miles  below Volcanic mountain. The claim  was, or is, owned by the Elsie May  Mining and Milling company, of Spokane. Farren was the original locator  and acted upon the supposition that  the. company had not taken out its  licenie. The resident members' of  company claim that the license was  taken out.  The returns from another car of ore  from the Wonderful have just been received. The car consisted of a little  over 20 tons, and the returns showed  125 ounces of rilver and 72 per cent.'  lead. The gross value per ton at the -  mine was-$124.23; the freight and  treatment, S22 per ton; the loss in  silver was S3.7S per ton; the loss in lead  $4.85 per ton ; the duty was gl0.86 per  ton ; the custom charges, 12 1-2 cents  per ton, and the net refurns wereSS2.61  per ton. The cheque from the smelter  amounted tc $1,701.12 ���������   '  The new copper lead recently discovered in the Sunset 2 has been opened several hundred feet east of the  opening made some weeks ago. The  vein in the new opening is found to be  six feet wide���������very much wider than  at the point of discovery. Assays  made of the ore clear across the vein  gave $2S in gold, lb   ounces   in   silver  New  Denver.  Messrs. Crawford & McMillan will  open a wholesale grocer and liquor  business in the new townsite building,  Silverton.  The new steamer now building at  Nakusp for the C. P. R. will be faster  in speed, and have more powerful  machinery than any thine of its size in  B. C.  The C. P. R. buildings to go up at  Slocan City will be highly creditable  ones. The se.ction house is now under  way and it will be followed by a Yery  fine station and warehouse.  Messrs. Miller & Brisbois, who a  short time ago leased the Wharton saw  mill across the lake, have since erected  several buildings there and are sawing  timber as fast as the mill's capacity  ���������will permit.  While the steamer Slocan was at the  dock the other day, in New Denver, a  prospector named Danie'-Arid a SI bill  blown out of his hand-i - rH;<ial������.J-.'''"'hy  one of the gentle zephyrs so common  in tin's country. He immediately  jumped overboard, caught the William  m his teeth and swam ashore amid the  plaudits of the multitude. Daniels is  all right. He may have-money to  burn, but evidently none for a watery  grave.���������Ledge. .  Striking It Rich at The Hillside.  Every man who gets a glimpse of  the Hillside these days loses no time  in looking around for stock. The reason for that is that the development of  the property is. proving it to be a good  thing. The vein is steadily widening  and gives every evidence of'great continuity. The vein is now 17 or 18 feet  wide and the ore keeps getting better  aud better as the work goes on.���������Kootenaian.  and 5b per cent, in copper. This is an  exceedingly fine assay for surface ore.  The showing is much the largest yet  discovered oh the "Sunset No. 2, and  development work will' bo pushed at  that point.  There is muoh prospecting work going on in the Trout Lake district, and  in consequence Trout Lake City is going ahead in great shape. The recorder ia kept busy. E. L, Kinman has recorded the discovery o: a four-foot lead  of nickel ore. It was found three miles  above Ferguson. An assay from float  ivent seven per cent, in nickel. Specimens brought down from thi lead for  assay show millerite, an ora of nickel  which goes 20 to 30 per cent. The  well-known Sudbury nickel go -as a  rule from 2 to 4 per cent. Messrs  gyrnes and Doyle, two Spokane prospectors, have struek some more good  leads on Tenderfoot creek, south of  Trout Lake.  A deal was closed at Grand Forks between the owners of the IS-Carat group  of the placer claims, which lies within  the corporate limits of the city, and  was located July 4, and W. C. McDou-  gal, of Rossland, whereby the latter  agrees to place mining machinery upon the property, demonstrate that the  gold can be saved thereby, when a half  interest in the Golden Shore and Nugget claims, will be deeded to him and  the expense of operating the machinery  will be equally shared.

WE WANT WRONGS RIGHTED-  '   That   Sandon   needs    government  offices,   Federal and Provincial, if for  no other reasons than that in ordinary  publicity it may be   no longer   robbed  oi the last vestige of even-handed jus-  ���������   tice, must be evident  to all   who take  the trouble   to take even   a glance at  the facts.    Take up the newspapers of  New Denver,  Slocan City and Kaslo,  ..   and   see   the  long  lists of locations,  transfers, etc.,  recorded weekly at the  offices at these points.    These records  give o'utsiders,  who do not know the  facts, the idea there must be extensive  mining operations   going on   at  these  points;   and it is no injustice 'to these  towns to say that so far there is sea rce-  ly a well paying mine tributary to any  of them.     There   are several   at each  point that may yet turn out.  to be very  profitable,   but so far, they are not extensive   shippers,   though the   reports  give tlie places credit for great/mining  operations.   , The   great  bulk   of the  entries at New Denver  are  in reality  of Sandon properties and should be,  with   a   local   office,   recorded here.  Why diis town should then continue to  be so ruthlessly robbed its of birthright  passes all ordinary understanding.    It  is clear the matter will never be cured  while local representation stands as it  does.  But bad as our inconveniencies and  actual loss may be through neglect   of  the local government, we suffer greater  misfortune's through the wrongs of the  Federal   administration.      Al   stated  periods, the customs officers at Nelson,  Kaslo and other points in  West Kootenay   make   returns of --hipmenls   of  of ore, and they arc all credited to the  Ports of Entry forcing Sandon's name  out of the list altogether.    This gives  outsiders who read   the reports  to understand the places  named   in the reports  of the ports of entry���������must be  important points; and   if Sandon has  really   an existence,   it  can only be a  spec  on the map.    If the publication  of these reports were merely local, the  matter would not be of such grave importance, but it is not.    These reports  find their way through   the   press   to  England,  the   United States,   France  and   elsewhere���������to   all   points where,  for   the welfare   of this   section, it   is  highly   desirable     the, naked   truth  Should be known,   and herein lies the  source of  the gravest injury.    Capital  in   these countries  is  seeking investment in mining industries, and nothing  is more   natural   than" "that  it should  wend   its way  to  the points  that  are  most heard of.  Sandon section, including Cody two  miles away, is to-day the largest ore  shipping section in the world, and  there is not a word of its output in the  records of the government. Rossland,  N-elson, Kaslo, even New Westminster,  that is in no way an exporter, are all  credited with Urge exports, and Sandon that is the exporter is never  heard of.  In our  next issue  we  will take   up  this matter more in detail, giving specifically   the exports  of some  ofthe  local mines, to correct in so far as our  circulation    reaches,    the     injustice  heaped upon   the place.    It appears  to us, that, under the circumstances,the  people  of this section  ought  to take  the bit into   their   own   mouths.'   We  have a local representative at Nelson,  and a Federal representative at Ka'm-  loops.    These men ought to be asked  to do -their duty  for us  in the way of  government offices, and, if they fail to  do it,the circumstance should be gratefully   remembered.      If, after   doing  their, duty,    failure follows,   the   fact  ought to be borne in mind for the governments.    We cannot  hold  govern-,  ments blamable for refusing favors, but  we   must hold   them. responsible   for  withholding  simple acts of unqualified  justice. ������������������'.'.'.-���������  out,tha-'t���������..ih Sandon "There seemed to  be more genuine mining going on than  in ail the other camps combined .* *'.*���������  that the place is a hive of industry * *  I have seen  nothing- in   the province  tliat looks   so promising *' *"* .there'  was no 'wild catting going'on, so noticeable, in the other, camps', etc., etc." and  for'-this;?'he) has drawn down, the vengeance of the Kaslo and the Rossland  papers..

There are   a   few   clever  men in it, it is true,'but-the great body  of the House is made up of old party  hacks  who   are simply there  because  theyhave   in  their   time  done  some  service   for   party, .and   cannot  find  constituencies    that   think enough   of  them to elect them to the Commons.  The body.cannot beabolished without  changing the Constitutioml act, as the  House could not be expected. to vote  itself out of existence, so that for the  country's welfare,  the hope lies in   the  change of the B. N. A. act.    Wiping  Out twenty'  of  the present   members  for want of property qualification  will  amount to nothing, as their.places will  only be filled   with other   hacks of   a  different party stripe.  The United States and France are  likely to hold a joint conference in  which Great Britain will be a strong  fractional element on bimetallism, at  an early date. The U.S. favors 16  and France 15^, but, with the difference so small, it is more than likely an  understanding will be readily reached.  This, of course, would to a large ex-  teat fix the value of silver the world  over, and mean millions for the Slocan  country, where silver ore exists in such  abundance.     Silver,   as  a   metal, for  the work, may be relied  upon  The Dominion Governmcnthasadopted an entirely new line so  aa  to   protect tlie Canadian laborei and give him  the benefit of the home market���������something  which   the   late   ������!dminstration  never attempted.   In fact, aii   entirely  different policy was pursued, with   the  result that American   contractors   and  sub-contractors   came    into    Canada,  pocketed money for the contracts-and  left Canadian   laborers,   who' did ��������� the  work, without anv  pay.     Parliament  had to be appealed to  in   some   cases,  and    legislation   was   passed   against  railways to provide  the  wages   of the  workmen who were 50 defrauded.   The  case of the Toronto, Hamilton  & Bul-  falo Railway is a recent  example, but  there are numerous instances in Manitoba and the Northwest   where   workmen have been shamefully treated and  never had an opportunity   of   redress.  In the first place, the  government lias  decided to put the alien ' labor '-.law   in  force in Manitoba, the  Northwest and  British Columbia, so as to, protect the  Canadian workmen on the Crow's Nest  Pass Railway.   The act can be put   in  operation by the   Minister   of  Justice  appointing an agent to   administer the  act.  Agenta will therefore be appointed at  Winnipeg, Lotbbridge and Ropsland,  and at other points in the west, without  dclav, so as to set tne machinery of  the alien labor law In operation.  This, of course, is not, only  contemplated in connection with   the   Crow's  Nest Pass Railway ,but the same protection will no doubt be taken wherever it  is found necessary in the interests of the  Canadian workman in other provinces  and at other points in  the   Dominion.  In addition to the  protection  afforded  by the alien labor law, it is understood  that the   Dominion   government  has  also an understanding with the C. P. R.  to give the preference to Canadians  in  all cases. ,  P.J. Loughrin, of the well-known Ontario labor organization, has been appointed to act as, agent of the Department of Justice for the enforcement of  the Canadian alien,labor law;-  M. J.

Well, for  his pocket's sake, we are sorry to say  Mr. Drum was once a newspaper man,  and later, for the shekels/ sake, he became a miner.

A Rossland paper tells a curious  8t������rv of a breach of'piomise. It, ap-  tlmt in 1891, in Ban Francisco Thomas  Rowley and Frank Gunnel), Enuli&h  dry goods cleri-b, were employed in the  ���������'Maze." The ioriuer, who is a man of  GO years of age, li.mdled the s'Iks, and  the hitter, who is about 30 \ears of  age, salesman of tho drew goods. Notwithstanding the di&p-irity of ages,  they were from the same country, and  and an intimacy sprang up between  them, and they took walks together  and talked of England and i-njoyed  eacli other's society. They passed to-  eether through various noiViui-lcs in  Ban Francisco, and at lapt they decided to start a dry goods store i<. Roas-  Jand. On the 1st of Junetbe twu left,  San Francisco for Ros-sla'nd, arriving  there on the 7th of June. Ait. r looking around, it was decided ihnt Mr.  Eowiey'should remain in Kossland to  hire and lit Out the store, while Gunnell  went to Toronto to purchase tiio stock  of goods.' Gunnell took his money  with him, amounting to a little over  ?800,and Rowley bought a draft wn the  IBank of Montreal for $700 in Gunnell's  nanie, and the latter took this with  him, too. Rowley kept a little over  SJ00 for tho purpose of paying the first  month's runt and fitting up the store.  Gunnell has never gone back to Rossland and his partner is obliged   to   be-  ' lieve J Vial he has stolen tbe money.'   A  ' warrant is out for hia arrest.  &  Boundary Creek.  ��������� It is reported from Rossland tliat one  of the big railway corporations has  made an'offer to the owners of the.  townsite and water power at Cascade  City to purchase the absolute right t������  the magnificent water power at that  point. It is stated that should the  company secure the power, it will establish car shops and teiminal facilities at Cascade City, aud develop the  water power to sucli a degree as to furnish ample power to the mines of that  whole district and light and heat to the  many camps in that country.   Tin re  .seems'Id be some trouble, however,  over the title. The owners of the Cascade City townsite claim to have had  the right to the water power given  them under their crown grant, ;.nd  therefore assert their rights as owneiv,  while other parties at Vancouver and  Victoria, who secured a charter last  session, claim thry are the sole owners  of the power. Unless the dispute is  settled in short order, the whole railway .scheme wilHall to the ground  much to tho detriment of mining in.  terests> in the..Boundary Creek country,  including Cascade City, Grand ���������'"orks,  Greenwood, Fairdew and the other  western camps.  - From tlie Interior.  ��������� A letter received.this ,-.l'ti rnoon from  Mr. J. M. O'Krien, of the World. \y\\o  was at Sandon on the 13th inst., slates  that It whs enjoying his holiday trip  and that whoievcr he went he met  with unbounded kindii'ss and many  old-time acquaintances. He. in company with Mr, Bruce White and foreman Bennett, with Milton "li. Martin,  son.of Mr. and Mrs. F. A.

New York, July 17.���������A special from  Washington to the Herald says : The  administration has practically determined to ignore the latest protest submitted by Japan in opposition to the  annexation of Hawaii by the United  ���������States. It is understood that the State  department has determined lo make  uo i-eply to this communication be:  ydnd the simple acknowledgement of  its receipt. It is admitted by the State  department officials,that the protest is  very stiff in its, character. , Japanese  and Hawaiian matters were considered  during the cabinet meeting yesterday,  but there was no d-seiission on the report of nn alliance between Japan  and Spain. The battleship .Oregon,  now on her way to San Francisco, will  remain at that port several "-eeks, then  go to Honolulu. !  Rich Ore From White Grouse.  Beautiful samples of ore have been  received from the' ..Delaware and Ora  Plata groups oil .White'.Grouse mountain east of Kootenay lake. Both  groups are owned in Rossland. The  ore is a rich quartz beautifully stained,  with copper carbonates and carrying  gray copper. The assays run well in  gold; silver and copper. Six men arc  at work on one.of. the Ora Plata -properties and. a strong ;ycin has been  '"opened showing- several feet of rich  ore. The Grows- Nest lino, will run  within 10 miles of the White Grouse:  camp, .and the prospect of nil early  completion of the road has given renewed activity to the country.  CHAPTJSR XII.  Lately we had one visitor to UHa-  mere, and'that was the Reverend John  Thornlelgh, rector of Ulladale, though  why he came I could not imagine, I  was the only member of the household who went to church; the servants  were, one and all. Dissenters���������even the  'old butler; yet the rector persisted in  calling-. He and I had become very  g-ood friends, fie liked to talk to me.  I knew afterwards that he loved mp,  and would have - asked me to be his  wife but that he heard of my engagement. <  His-wife was dead���������had died when  his only son was born; and nothing  seemed to give him such comfort as  talking to nie about her. "Wh^n the  rector was announced, if by any accident we were'all three together. Sir  Rudolph and Lady Culmore would remain for a short time. It was a great  embarrassment to the rector���������I could  sec that. Apart he could talk to them,  but together, he looked' In a state of  bewilderment from one to the other.  He saw plainly enough the terms on  which they lived; tliat no unnecessary-  word ever'passed between them;-that  strangers could not be less to each  other than this husband and wife. He  saw that all efforts to draw them  nearer together were quite unavailing.  It was distressing to him, and, unlike  myself, he never became accustomed  to it. 1 did. At first it was uncomfortable,, but from force of habit, the  time came when I could carry on conversation with both a.t the same time,  without the slightest embarrassment.  The rector.could not. He grew confused; he appealed from one to the  other. His appeals wore met with  stern coldness by Sir Rudolph, with an  excess of embarrassment by Lady  Culmore. Of the two he liked Lady  Culmore best. She was always most  kind to him, and ready to help his  charitable work when he needed it.  I was present^ once when he 3ald to  her : .  "Lady Culmore, do you never attend  any place of worship ?'  And she made answer, "Never."  - The rector was a good man. He had  a real love for his profession. Moreover, he was clever and accomplished.  He looked just a little .shocked when  Lady, Culmore answered  thus.,  "Do you not think," he began. But  she interrupted hln\  "If you, please, Mr. Thornleigh, we  will not discuss the matter. I yield  at onco. 1 am quite sure that every  ont ought to go to some place of worship. I have my own reasons- for  staying away, and they are known  only to  one."  What could any man say in answer  to that ? ' '  Then the rector grew more conllden-  tial with me. He talked a great deal  about Sir Rudolph and Lady Culmore.  They were two of the pleasantest  people he had ever met. he said, and  he deeply deplored the terrible estrangement between them. Like every  ���������one else who knew them, he wondered  greatly what had caused it. He was  a true friend of theirs, and, knowing  that, we talked always in the hope  that we might be able to do something.  But, after a time, I saw that it was  impracticable; there was nothing to be  done.  The rector never tired of talking to  .me about his little child. I went to  see him at the rectory. On my return  I told Lady Culmore all about his  sweet baby ways.  "Do ask him here, Lady Culmore," I  said. "You cannot think how the presence of a child brightens the house.  These rooms would be very different  with a child playing and laughing, or  even crying in them, Do ask him,  Lady Culmore,". I urged-, "I am suro  It would cheer and amuse you."  She gre-w very pale���������so pale that I  thought she would swoon.  "My dear, it would simply kill me,"  sho  replied.  "How could the visit of a sweet little  boy like little Willie hurt you?" I asked, in some surprise.  She mado no answer to the question,  and 1 continued���������  "It would please Sir Rudolph, I am  sure."  "It would not," she cried ; "you are  quite mistaken. It would���������" Then  she stopped abuptly. -"No, Miss Forster ; if you wish me well, never let any  children come to Ullamere."  "Do you,not like children ?" I asked.  "Yes," she answered, wearily. " I  suppose .it is part of the nature, or all  women  to  love them."  "1 am not quite sure of that, Lady  Culmore," I answered. " I have seen  and known women who did not like  children at all."  So I relinquished my idea.  I was with Sir Rudolph-and Lady  Culmore another day when the rector  came to ask their help. It was for a.  poor woman whose child was very 111,' >  and the rector dwelt much on the  child's sufferings.- '  "It seems . to me such an awful  thing," he said, " for a littio child to  die of want." ������������������'.'���������..  He did hot perceive, as I did, how the  expression of both his listeners- faces  changed, Sir Rudolph's growing stony  and cold, Lady Culmore's wearing that  terribly embarrassed air that., came  over her at times. I hastened to speak,  hoping that I should turn . tlie tide of  conversation.  "I do not think it worse for a chjld  to die of want than for a grown up  person so to^ die."  The rector shook his head.  "I have a' theory, of. my own about  the death of infants," ho said.  Thinking  to  divert  the  conveisation  from what might be a dangerous chan?  nel. I said quickly���������. . ".  ;��������� "What  is, your  theory,   Mr.    Thorn-  leigli ?���������;-���������" .,"'���������. '���������'''..'.������������������  -  '!It .is . this, , Miss   Forster;  . In    the ���������  case of grown-up men and.women, you  know the extent of. their capabilities/-",  you know exactly what,they are; they  may be  clever,  they may be  the    reverse.    But, if an infant dies, you: do  not know what'loss the world sustains;  he    may     be.  an  embryo     Milton   or,  Shakespeare.    So the death of a child,  it  seems to me,  is much sadder  than  that of a grown-up person."      .  There Was. something in, this view  of the case; and I was so much -in-?  terested in it that for a few moments  I forgot Lady Culmore. A .deep sigh ;  drew my attention to her. I saw her  turn away from, us with a look of s-u-di  I  - ���������      ��������� *7 ' ',P������iWfB3ES r-   ���������       ..  I ���������  Intense anguish on her face as I had  never seen on human , face be������or*v  while Sir Rudolph had grown -wtoit*  as death.  I hastened to say that this was a  new idea to me, that I had always  thought adult life the more valuable;  then I asked the rector some- ldl������  questions about the bell-ringers, and  Sir Rudolph made his escape. Lady  Culmore seemed to breathe more  freely after he had gone, and the  rector ' received , all that he desired.  Thinking over one incident after an-  ,other,  It  seemed    clear    to  me    that.  I HASTENED TO SAY THIS WAS A NEW IDEA  TO  ME.  whatever was the secret, the tragedy,  the mystery of Lady Culmore's life,  It was connected with a little child.  CHAPTER  XIIL  A most unexpected event happened  ��������� ere long���������������������������the rector was invited to  dinner. It apepars a trivial incident  in itself, hardly worth recording, but  It led to' greater events. It must have  been at Ulric's suggestion. Sir Bu-  dolph^ never asked any human being  near 'the place, and Lady Culmore  dreaded seeing any one. I may mention,  that Ulric had pretended to be dreadfully jealous ������f the rector and his  baby'son. and that I was both young  and foolish enough to be flattered by  his jealousy, and thought it a great  tiling- to have such a tall, handsom������  man  jealous  about  me.  One bright sunny morning, when I  was starting with Ulric for the lak������,  the rector -was announced, and I was  obliged to stay and entertain him���������  neither the master nor the mistress ot  the house was to be seen. Ulric's face  darkened.  .  "Is there really no one but you,  Kate, to entertain visitors ? The rector  is what* you ladies call 'sucli a hanS-  some man!' Do not stay long, "dear.  Think of the pleasant time we shall  have, the boat gliding over the laJce  among the water-lilies���������a delightful  prospect for a warm day.".  "I must hear what he has to sa.y,  Ulric,"   I  remonstrated.  Aa It happened, the rector had a  great deal to say. He was very anxious about, the inhabitants ol Ulladale; the town was very unhealthy;  and, as Sir Rudolph owned a deal of  property there, he wished to see him  and talk to him about it. Some of the  houses, the rector said, were so badly  built, so badly ventilated, that they  were neither more nor less than traps  for fever and death.  "Do not think that I am an alarmist," he added, but, Miss Forster, if  fever does break out thero, it will bo  fatal for many."  I advised him to see Sir Rudolph.  So it came about that the rector was  invited to dinner���������an event ia the  Ullamere household.  It was a warm day. The air was  faint with the breath of roses, heavy  and still; there was no movement in  the sprays of the Jasmine. That evening Lady Culmore iooked most beautiful. She wore a dress of white lace  trimmed with leaves and long trailing  grasses; a diamond star shone in her  fair hair, a diamond cross lay on her  white breast. She had dressed, us  usual, to eharoa the eyes of her husband, and they never even rested on  her  To please my lover, I wore a pretty  primrose silk, cut square, with short  sleeves. I had beautiful white, rounded arms, he said, and insisted on my  showing them; they were made to be  admired, and he would mot have-them  h'dden.  That wns the most cheerful dinnea  I remember at Ullamere. The un������  natural coldness and silence of husband and wife -were not noticed so  much when there was a visitor present The rector had plenty to say,  Ulric was In better spirits than I had  seen him for some time.  Suddenly���������I can not remember how  it began���������the conversation turned on  capital punishment, and the rector  quoted the well-known words th ait "the  worst use to which you can put-a-man  ls to hang hkn." I noticed- that at-  first neither Sir Rudolph nor. Lody  Culmore joined' in the conversation.  They sat listening in' silence, Sir.  Rudolph looked paler than usual,' Lady  Culmore with an unusual'Hush on her  beautiful face. The . rector and.���������Ulrk:  argued the question hotly, Ulric being  In favor of and the rector against the  punishment   of   death.  "I have' often thought," said tho rector, "that those words, "a life for a  life,' are capable of many interpretations."      . '      ���������'.''." ���������    . ,  "Do you not believe, asked . Ulric,  "tbat the man who deliberately takes  a human life should, pay the penalty  of his crime with his own ?".  '"No, I do not," "replied the rector.  "Men'are such,estrange mixtures of.  good and- evil. ,1' do not see the use  of hanging a man.- It does .no good;  it can not restore the dead to  life."  ."It 'deters others- from committing  the .'same   crime,"   declared ������������������Ulric.  ���������'.  "I do not think so," said the rector.  "When a  man in  the heat of passion  kills another, he floes nor stop to thank .  about   the. last  execution.".  _ "Opinions differ," said Uiric. "Where  life is  taken  in  the  mad  heat of passion, it is  perhaps  hardly ..murder.-    It  ts when life  is take;n-after cool,  calm  deliberation,  after  thought, and  reflection,   that  call   the  deed  murder."    ;���������  The word fell painfully  on our ears.  '.'It is a horrible word���������'murder,'"  I  said. "The veiy sound of it is terrible."  "I' read   a 'strange   story   the   other  Say," said the rector, "one that struck  .  -*~-     .~.. .....a.  11 iaiitrrgsriiiiiT7i'ii"-T'i'''"'.' 1  me very forcibly. A man murdered  his wife, how or why I forget; she had  given him some provocation peihaps.  He ran away, when, of course, ;" 'hue  and cry,' was sent out, and the pol'ce  were soon after him.'/He ran l.'dden  himself.

Thu stoiy  struck nie as being a strange one,"  added ,the rector.  Something induced me to look at  Lady Culmore's face. Her < yes were  fixed on the rector's face; s-!:u hung  upon each word that fell fium his lips.  There was a strantre light in hei c-yas  that I had never seen there before  "Yes," paid Ulric: "but the man w.is  mistaken. The proper leadny of the  words is that whofoever tak,,s a man's  life shall pay for it with hi, own."  "it one life pays for auctlier," Lady  Culmore broke In, "how can it-matter  whose  Hie it  Is V"  Every one looked up in wonder. I-ler  clear, sweet tonefe vibi.itud Ihiough  the room, -her beautiful fait- was  flushed. Sir Rudolph rcgardod her in  astonishment.    Ph<; went on :  "If any ono takes a life anJ.^lves a  life, does not that equalize mattr-:s'."'  she asked; and 1 detected cornelh:ng of  scornful bitterness In her yu'.ce. '"If  the life given he more valuable than  tho life taken does not that- more than  discharge the debt '!"  "No," said the lector, in a distinct  voice that seemed to startle' us���������  "No. That is the view of a distorted  mind, Lady Culmore, of one flint does  not distinguish clearly between . right  and   wrone." ' ,  ���������  I saw her shrink as she would have  shrunk  from  a  blow.  "What a gloomy conversation !"  cried Ulric suddenly. "How can' we  have drifted into it ? Letr us dismiss  the subject. Lady Culmore, you ought  to havo dismissed us."  "I have been greatly inteies. :V she  said; and again there wis something  now and strange in her vo'ce, while  tlie light si ill flashed in her. e.ves.  During ihe long disci-.- 1 .;; huri.anJ  and wife hardly .looked at each other.  But at the words "a life fo:- a, life" I  saw Lady Culmore raise her eyes and  fix them on her husband'.s face. Who  could read them with iheii messages  of love,  regret,  and   hope ?  So the evening passed, and, when  the rector had gone, Sir Rudolph,  with a hasty "Good-night,," retired  also. Lady Culmore, who seeme-a  quite abstracted, walked to lhe window and drew the blind asid-\ Sho  stood there looking out into the dark-:  ness.  "Kate," whispered my lover, "coma  here; I want you;" and we v. ent into  the conservatory, whi< h was dimly  lighted. "My dear"���������w.th a quiet ear-  ess���������"you have behaved wonderfully  well  this evening."  "I always behave weil.

"She will not see mo,"������ sa'cl Ulric;  "and if she does, It will not matter.

"Remember," said my lovoi, ���������" ith a  flush on his handsome face���������"lemem-  ber that 1 shall speak to my brother  to-morrow. 1 will no.f put up w.lh  another  day's  delav."  He bade me "Good-night," in his  usual lover-like fashion, and went  away. Then 1 crossed over to Lady  Culmore. She turned to me. when I  spoke  to her.  "Oh, "my dear," she' said, "who I4  1* ?" ���������-.'>"'  ''Who is what .?" I asked,  "YQii should see: your own face,  Kate; you should see your, own eyes.  As we stand side by side, you are the  very picture of happiness, as I am the  picture  of woe." _  I-was ashamed of myself; I wished  that I could drive the light of happiness  from  my  face  nnd  eyes:  "I am haunted," she said, "by those  words, 'A life for. a life !' What, a  strange conversation, that, was,. Kate!"  "Neither cheerful   nor   pleasant,"    I  replied. ."And if I were you. Lady  Culmore. I would-forget, all about it,"  ;-i wish," she cried, passionately,  Vtlmt'i could forget all'about myself,  even   to  my  very  name!"  CHAPTER XVI.  Ulric had no' chance of fulfilling this  threat on the following day, for Sir  Rudolph rode off early in the morning  to Uiiadale, to inspect the. houses of  which-the rector- had spoken. The heat  was intense. The., heavens were like  molten.'brass:- The white lilies drooped, the roses hung their heads; the  birds had- hidden themselves in their  leafy coverts;' there- was. not a ripple  on the lake, nor a whisper of wind*  from the mountain tops to relieve the  settled,  intense heat.  "I wish Sir Rudolph had not gone to  Ulladale to-day," said Lady Culmore;  "it ls so hot, and he will be In'and'  out of those horrible houses. I'shall  be miserable about him.    I have suoh  a sense 01 coming sorrow on me."  Uiric   laughed. ''  "Now, Nest,' we will not have that.  Things are bad enough; we will not  have any forbodings of coming sor-  low."  "I can not help it,' she said, with  pale, trembling lips.  1 It was a long, quiet day. Ulric and  I spent the morning under the cedar.  He read and I0 worked, with various  little br-ppy interludes.  Night came and Sir Rudolph returned in safety. Although Lady Culmore  had been anxious concerning him all  ���������lay, she did not go out to meet him,  rhe gave utterance to none of the joy  she fell at seeing him; but I saw that  her vhole heart went out to him,  though she repressed all outward sign  of emotion.  Dinner was an utter failure; no one  was hurgry, no one could eat. Even  I'lric succumbed to the heat, and had  little  to   say.  In the drawing room afterward,  Lady Culmore, in her white dress seated heisclf in the shadow. Sir Rudolph  opened the windows wide, and pushed  away   the   hangings.  "Let us have what little air there  is," he said.  "Kate," exclaimed Ulric, suddenly,  "sing for us. I found a quaint song  the other day, and I brought it home  with  me," '  He placed it on the piano, and I sans  it.    it was called "Two Pictures."  "I s:it  in tlie gathering shadows  And I  looked  to the west iinny;;  Then   the luimliuf Mi misei'U arllst  Wn-, ;iu liiiii^. 111 elose of day,  A sir.niKC mid beautiful picture  Tim!   lillpd  my soul   with  awe,  And ni.idc men think of the tlty  No mortals ever haw.

' -'You  know  that    I  do,  Lady    Culmore,"   I   replied.  "Then do not sing another note; I  can not bear it I used to sing once.  My voice, they said, was sweet and  clear as a silver bell; and I loved  music."  ' "I have never heard you sing, Lady  Culmore,"  I  said.  "1 have not sung a note since���������since  we came here," she returned; 'fand I  never shall sing again." And then  we parted for the night.  The rector had not been near us all  day, nor had he had any news of little  Willie; but on the "following morning,  when we sat at breakfast, all four together, for a wonder, he w-as announced. He came in looking very anxious,  with dark shadows beneath his eyes.  Before he greeted us he cried, in a  distressed voice :  "Little Willie is very ill."  We were all grieved. The poor rector  seemed heartbroken.  "What is the matter ?" asked Ulric.  "One must not attach too much importance to the ailments of children.  They seem to be at death's door one  day, and they are quite well again  the next."  "Yes: but he is very ill," said the  rector gravely. "I was sent for early  this morning to visit the poor woman  who -lives by the west lake. As I was  returning, I met Dr. Johnston, who  had just b'een to see my little boy,  and he tells me that he ls very ill indeed. I thought I would call here, and  ask you to let the groom drive m������  home -I shall reach the rectory so  much more quickly."  Sir Rudolph insisted on driving him  himself; and he left us all very sorrowful.  That evening we were just, finishing  dinner when a note came from the rectory which was addressed to me. It told  the terrible news that little Willie  was ill of small-pox of Jthe malignant  type. The nurse had '..'aken him to  some cottage where a woman lay  stricken with it, and the child had  caught the contagion. To add to the  ,-ector's distress, the nurse had fled from  the house when she discovered what  was the matter; the young house-maid,  afraid of losing her good looks, also  left at once, and there was no one to  attend to his darling boy but the old  houseke<="-ier. I read the letter aloud,  and thei   rose from my chair.  "Lady Culmore," I said, "will you let  me go to the rectory? I will nurse the  child; I am not afraid, and I love little  Willie.    He must not want for care."  Ah, there was the same strange light  -jii her beautiful face that I had remarked before, the same clear, unearthly  radiance in  her eyes!  'No," she replied, "I will not let you  go, Kate. If it be really malignant  small-pox, it is very contagious and  generally' fatal."  A strong arm was thrown around me;  felt myself drawn close to a faithful,  loving  heart.  ''You  are  not your own  to  do  what  you   !ike  with.    You  are   mine,  and  I  forbid you to go."  I clung to Ulric. weeping.  "The  little   child-1   must   go   to   the  littio   child!"   I   sobbed.  "You shall not go near it," he said.  ''.You are mine, Tl'"re are plenty of  clever, trained nurses who can do the  work better than you. I will not let  you risk your life."  , We had forgotten the presence of  others; we had forgotten 'verything  except each other. An astonishe.!' cry  from Lady Culmore roused me,  ���������'Ulric���������Kate!"   she   exclaimed.  My lover raised his drak. handsome,  Hushed face.  "I forgot," he said. "I was going to  toll you this morning', You know nothing of this. Rudolph.' my brother, Nest"  ���������I noticed, even at that moment, that  he did not say, "Nest, my sister"���������"I  love Kate, and she has promised to be  my wife." ,'  The next moment Sir Rudolph had  crossed the room, and, taking me from  Ulric's  arms,  kissed  me.  "A good and charming wife you will  have, Ulric." he said; and then a great  sadness came over his face. I knew he  was thinking of the time when he had  made choice of a wife. ;  Lady Culmore came up to me aur-  riedly.  "Kate, I half guessed it. I was' sure  you loved some one. I have seen such  a love-light in your eyes. I am very  glad it is .Ulric, tor he will be so s������o*  to you."  (To be continued.)  fi  ROSSLAND &  Mil CREEK  Mining Company.  (LIMITED LIABILITY.)  KOSSLAND & TEAII ?REEK MINING GROUP, incorporated under the  above title, which consists of the follow-  ing well-known properties:  The " ISLAND BELLE, GOLDEN  CROWN, ROBERT ER17CE, FREE  SILVER, SOUTHAMPTON and EMMA  C.  ' All of which belong to the Rossland  & Trail Creek Mining Co., making a  strong company, as all the property has  been fully paid for and several thousand  dollars worth of roads and development  work done, which was also paid for by  the promoters. The Company did not  offer one share of stock for sale till it  was satisfied that they had sufficient  showing to secure a shij^ping mine;  which fact is now assured as they have  now completed fifty feet of shaft work  on the Golden Crown, which shoA's up a  splendid body of ores and the management will now commence running the  working tunnel, which will tap the vein  at a lower level, aud the best of experts  of the camp predict that the Golden  Crown will soon be a shipping mine.  There has also been a crosscut made  on the Island Belle to catch the lead  from the South Bend, which now shows  up the Island Belle sufficiently to push  further development with almost positive assurance of getting a shipping  mine.  The Golden Crown, Island Belle aud  Robert Bruce are adjoining claims and  are separated from the other three by  the South Bend, Gold Dollar and Albany. , The ledge.- from the Deadwood,  which adjoins the Golden "Crown on the  west, and which is owned by' C. W. Callig-  han, the well-known mining expert,  runs clear across the Robert Bruce, and  one of the "ledges from the South Bend  through the Free Silver. The Emma C.  has the Albany ledge which can ��������� be  traced to the Imperial and G. R. Sovereign mines, and there is a good surface  showing on the Southampton.  All six of these claims are in this one  Company and purchasers of stock get an  interest in all, which, taken into consideration with the fact that the Company is only stocked lor $1,000,000 with  5250,000 as treasury stock to be used for  development, makes one of the best  buys ever offered to the. public.  FACILITIES  FOR    MIJTIXG   AM}   TRANSPORTATION.  For convenience of location for mining  and shipping purposes, these properties  cannot be surpass* 1. There is an abundance of timber, and Lake|||Creek, which  runs from the summit of the mountain  to Trail Creek and passes these claims,  provides a bountiful supply of water.  TUIOfBLS.  There are splendid opportunities for  tunnelling and it is the intention of the  Company, shortly, to run a tunnel to  catch the lead upon which the work is  now being done, thus cheapening the  cost of mining. The property lies within about three miles of the Trail smelter. The Columbia & Western Railway  within one claim and a half (about 1,700  feet) fronvthe present works, all down  grade, thus affording unequalled facilities for conveying ores to tho cars, and  thence to the smelter. There also is a  movement on foot to erect a smelter on  the R. E. Lee or Maid of Erin grounds,  which are in close proximity, to the  property. Should this be effected, the  ore can be treated at the very lowest  possible cost. This will admit of the  treatment of low grade ores, which heretofore has been impossible.  50,000  snARns  Of the Treasury Stock is now offered  for sale at the very low price of  TEN" CENTS PER SHARE,  to provide funds to pay the costs connected with continuing of development  after completion of the now existing  contracts.  The Capital Stock of the Company is  $1,000,000, divided into 1,000,000 shares  of the par ralue of $1.00 each, of which  250,000 has been placed as Treasury  Stock.  Regarding" the present famous and  the untold future possibilities of the  Trail Creek Gamp, so much has ' been  said and written that it is needless to  make any'more than a passing reference.  Rossland, the great and growing busi-  n������*s csntre, ban been ntyled the "Bull's  Eye of America.'' It might well be  called the Bull's Eye ofthe World. It  attracts tho miner and the capitalist,  the business man and the laborer from  all parts.  The vast number of mines and prospective Amines with which, on every  hand it is surrounded, makes Rossland  to-day one of the most talked ef and  universally admired spots on Earth.  As :i field for profitable and safe investment the Trail Creek Camp stands  without a rival. One year ago there  were but two shipping mines; how  there are twewty, and everything else  has increased in.proportion.  We have every reason to believe  that, under the excellent management,  judging by the business-like manner  in which everything in connection  with this Company has been executed,  within one year the llosshmd & Trail  Creek Mining Company's property will  stand high among the producing  minesiof the District  TO    INVESTORS  We would say that, in determining  whether or.nnt they should place their  capital in this /(Company's stock, they  should consider:  (1) The number of properties, extent  of ground and number of leads to be  worked. Buying stock in this Company with its six" full claims at 10 cents,  is like buying in most other companies, which have only one claim, at a  little better than   one cent aud  a half.  (2) The convenience o. situation and  the excellent facilities for mining'and  transportation.  (3) lhe fact that the promoters have  not been dependent upon the sale of  Treasury Stock to begin development  work, but have) before offering stock  for sale, performed sufficient work to  demonstrate that they have every prospect of getting a shipping mine.

MOUNTAIN   ECHOES.  Denver is going to have a beat club.  The concentrator at Three Porks is-  at work on Idaho ore.  Foss and McDonald are at work on  a wagon road from the Dardanelles to  McGuigan.  A wholesale liquor store is shortly to  be opened in the western store of Mr.  Harris' new block.  Mr. F. J. Donaldson, druggist, is  building a new residence on the hill  j ust south of the C. P. R. depot.  Fred Vester, a resident  of .Rossland  poisonod himself by strychnine in the  presence of his wife on Saturday last.  A sitting of the County Court for  this district will he held at New Denver on the 29th inst. Justice Farin presiding.  Rossland's real estate is assessed al  $2,000,000. There is no trouble in getting an assessment when value is not  considered.  All the latest novels at ClilTc's bookstore.  i *  Wall paper   at Cliil'e's   book   store,  cheap.

The Noble Five has resumed operations again, having the part ol machinery repaired that broke a short  time ago.  The Payne people are hard at their  6,000 feet tram. It is a three-rail gravity principle, and 50 men are pushing  the work" ahead.  Little Knit Smith, the four-year-old  son of J. IT. Smith, fell from the skating rink roof to 'the floor below, a distance of 18 feet, and, strange to say,  escaped injury.  Some of th,e Dailiv s have a cock and  bull yarn to the effect that Spain and  Japan are going to demolish the United  States by-a simultaneous attack from  either side.  A suit has been entered in a Denver  (Colorado) court for 680,000,000. It is  needless to *ay it is not a country  newspaper that is involved ; it is the  Ibex mine, of Leadville.  Many of our business" people are  building fire proof'cellars for store  rooms because of the excessive, in fact  next to prohibitive rates.of insurance,  eyen when it can be got at all.  Mr. W. Rowsom is erecting a large  store building on the Cody road nex'  Jelland's grocery. When completed  he and Mi. Jelland will go into tlie  grocery and provision business together.  Mr. S. Campbell, late of the Grain!  Trunk and Great Northern roads at  Spokane, has been appointed agent oi  the K. & S. R. R. here vice Mr. Lilly  resigned. Mr. Lilly has not yet decided what he will engage in.  The Rossland Miner has reduued its  size from a seven to a six column  paper. This ' would not show that  Rossland is booming. -The great tendency is, however, to make newspapers  too large, and then spread in every  way conceivable to fill th m.  The Canadian jubilee stamps hear  the likeness of the Queen as she.  appeared in 1S37, and as she appears  now. Some people have been tearing  these stamps in two and putting one-  half on each letter, and in every case  the Jotters have been returned to the  dead letter office.  Because there are 273 miners employed in and around Slocan City with  a pay roll of $25,000 a monrh,' the News  goes into ecstacies of delight. For the  last year Sandon section has employed  over'l.OOO miners paying them over $25,-  000 a week, and we make no fuss about  it eithar. Some roosters make a very  big cackle over a very small egg.  Mr. Fitzgerald, of Fitzgerald it Day,  soda water manufacturers, has bought  Mr. Shaw's residence, near H. Trat-  trie's, and will reside there with his  wife and family who are expected by  the first of the" month. The firm are  importing a large lot of improved  syphones and bottles, and on their arrival will fit up one of the best manufactories in tho country. There will  be no need of us sending anywhere for  tlieir goods, after this.  It looks as if the continued efforts  of the people of New Denver, Three  Forks and Sandon were required to  make the proposed wagon road an assured fact. So far $7,000 has been subscribed, and it will take from 81,506 to  $2,000 more to get the government's  guarantee to finish the work with an  equal expenditure. This road if built  will be of incalculable service to all  three towns, and we trust the citizens  will give the matter the requisite attention.    ���������  On Saturday, the long talked of drilling contest between the Rambler and  the Reco teams for 8500 a side, took  place in the skating rink. The Rambler team were Dan Murphy and A. W.  Lawler; the Reco team, E. Corkiss and  ��������� Kline. Time, 15 minutes ; rock,  . hard granite. The Ramblers were the  victors "drilling 32} inches to 24} of the  Reco men. It is thought that over  $1,000 changed hands in bets. Dan  O'Sbea says it was "A great victry for  Ould Oireland.  It is said the post office inspector is  shortly to visit the town to sec what is  wrong with the mail service. When  he calls lie will have no 'difficulty  in getting the desired information. Almost any small boy in  town can tell him that we have an extensive postal revenue; that we have  but the equivalent of two mails a, week  to eastern Canada an", western B. C;  and that usually our wicket that closes  at 10.45 remains closed till four or five  o'clock in the afternoon for the want  of help to handle the mail.  One would think from the reading of  the Rossland Miner, and the big things  that are found out there, there were  9,999,999*999 mines within three miles  of that city whose output was anywhere from i-500 to $5,000 ������������������ per ton in  gold, and yet you can yet count all the  dividend payers in that camp on a few  of the fingers of your left hand. It  would appear to the ordinary reader  that if one-tent-i of all the big strikes  reported in that paper the p.-.st' two  years was true, the population of that  town should now be 70,000 instead of  less than 7,000 actual residents. There  is mueh hlowing about big strikes  before it is known that there are any  strikes at all.  Mr. Portman is aboiit to erect a new  hotel along side his bottling works  near The RtviiiW office.  It is much to be regretted that internal dill"> rences are stopping work on  the the won'ter group at Three Forks.  A giand concert for which much ol  the best talent in town has been engaged, will be held in Spencer's hull on  T.iesday evening next. Adult admission 50 cents. Proceeds to be applied  to the building of the new Methodist  church. Tickets now on sale at Glide's  bookstore.  Messrs. Golden Bros, have opened  out their stock of boots and shoe.-, in  their building across from Black's  hotel. The store is neatly finished,and  with the choice stock and moderate  prices will prove a drawing card to  those requiring foot gear.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Mr. E.J. Short, of Spokane, is in  town looking after somo mining: propositions in which ho is interested.  A. K. Hoylnnd, P.LS., is in town in  connection with the K. & S. taiJwiiy.  lie will remain here for some timo.  Doering & Mar-  ., Vancouver, was.  making some  big  Mr.   Doering,   of  strand's Brewing Co,  in  town this week  sales. i  The Rev. Mr. Menzies from Ontario  has oeen visiting his name sake hero,  with whom he has been acquainted for  some time.  Mr. Kelly, of the Reco mine, is in  town aiding the other members of the  company in completing the plans for  tlm projected concentrator, tramway  and other improvement on the mine.  Mr. J Ii. Leech, barrister of Bran  don, Man., was a caller at The Review  oflico yesterday. He is looking around  this country in search of a desirable  location. We may hoar of him again  later.  Mr. .1. B. McArthur, one of the mil-  Jionnin-s of Rossland, was in town on  Tuesday on his way home from an inspection of the Rambler mine at McGuigan in which he is interested.  Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Williams returned from Banff this week. '-Irs. Williams lias found her health so far improved that she has decided to go on  a viiit to her old homo in Nova  Scotia.  Mr. J. W. Council, of Cavndufi", Assn.,  wns a pleasant caller at The Rkvikw  office Thursday, and like all other sensible visitors he subscribed for the  paper. Mr. Connoll has several interests in this country and contemplates  securing more, but he nail locate them  as near Sunclan as possible whvre he  knows the wealth lies hidden but easily  found.

The stream was flooded, and he was  taken post the point at which he  wanted to land; while, farther oh, misfortune still further overtook him to  the extent that tlie boa.t got upset. His  wife, realizing thr danger he was in,  ran frantically alijng. the side of the  stream, crying for help in a pitiful  voice; when, to her sheer amazement,  sho was suddenly brought to a standstill by her husband yelling ouit: "If  I'm.drowned, Molly dunnot forget that  flour's gone up 2 shillin' a sack!"���������  London  Tit-Bits.
