 /v-t.  l**r*'  VOL. 5.���������NO. 5.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 20, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAK.  The Situation.  The Rossland Miner, in the midbt of  a deadly strike, shows a courage that  would greatly advance the country's interests if imitated by the press in yen-  era! and the business community in  particular. The .average newspaper  looks for the transient advantages it  brings, and the average business man  and saloon keeper lookg^o the few immediate shekels it may place in his till  by catering (o sentiments of any description, when in blood  heat; but this  City Council Proceedings.  The best sceance of all took place at  the council Monday evening. The mayor  jumped on to Aid. Folliott at a lively  rate for what he considers a defect in  water and sewer system of the city hall,  and for presenting accounts in which it  is alleged he is interested at exorbitant  prices. Several other accounts in which  it wassupposed aldermen were interested  were presented and duly criticised, the  mayor pointing out it was a fact the law  was against alderman being in any way  is not the way to build up  any  country i mixed up in accounts with the council,  or establish prosperity on a substantial   We may here, however, say  there  are  basis, which after all is the goal sought  after by all sensible people.  Labor is just as necessary the world  over as capital is, and it must be considered as well as capital and shown  "British fairplay," but no more. It  , must not be coddled and pampered in  whims, for the way it may immediately  bleed, if the welfare of the country is to  be conserved. There are some who say  labor must always he taken care of, as  capital can take care of itself. This is  not the case, as capital must make profit as well as labor, snd neither can  make it by inactivity; money must be  kept in circulation to meet the demands  of the owner, as well as labor muBt be  kept in activity.  The businessman who tells the laborer he is right in his demands on capital,  whatever they are, for the immediate  money he may make out of that man by  so doing, is no more his friend than he  is the friend of the country.   The mine  owner is simply, the representative of  borrowed capital, and he must make interest on the money invested   in   the  mine for the owners, if capital is to remain in,.mining,if itis notitwill be turned into 6therV'hannel8 whefe it will not  be.so serviceable to labor, by employing  fewer men.   It  is   the simple   duty of  business   men   to explain this to their  labor patrons.   We suppose for instance  about $4,000,000 has been paid in profits  by all the mines in the Slocan from the  first of operations to date.   To the laboring   man   this   iniiy appear a large  sum;   but   the   question   is:     Is  it  more   than proper  profit   on all   the  money sunk   in   mining operations in  the district, after fair salaries were paid  to the men who represent it ?   If  it  is  labor has not'had a   fair  share  of the  profits; but if it is not labor has been  fairly dealt with.   This is the fair way,  and the only fair way,  to look at ihe  matter.   If labor makes higher demands  than the profits of investments in the  bulk will warrant in any particular enterprise, labor cannot expect to see capital go that way���������it must then  look for  employment in other channels.  The Rossland paper now speaks to the  business people in a way that would  have been serviceable toSlocan.business  people in the late trouble. It says one  third of the Miners in the Rossland district are non-union men and do not  favor the present strike; a large per  centage of the union men are also  against it, bo it ie a minority of the miners all told that have ordered the strike,  and are responsible for the consequences, This was exactly 'the caBe  here iu the late strike or lockout, whichever it wap. A large oer  centage of the miners were non-union  men, but inanv of them refused to work,  though desiring to do so, for fear of the  consequences; a large number of the  union men wanted to accept the wages  that are now being paid, and were  offered by some of the mines before any  shutdown took place, but a bo'iy of  the union men representing the minority of the miners in the camp all told,  refusedthe offer, and tied up the country in effect from which it will take  many years to recover. Many of the  saloon keepers and business men of the  district backed the recalcitrants, and  therein7 lay the fatal mistake. If the  business men had stood by the majority  ���������bj' the men who wanted to accept the  offer since accepted, there would have  been no stoppage of work and none of  the consequent embitterments. It may  serve a-useful lesson for the future.  extenuating circumstances connected  with Aid. Cameron's bill. The mostof  it was for pay to men during the flume  flood. The work had to be done on the  spot, and Mr. Cameron is especially  qualified for it, and Mayor Pitts ordered it.  It is also a fact that Aid. Jalland sits  at the Board in the face of a law that  leaves him liable for penalties because  of his being on the bonds of the Collector. No man can be an alderman  and on the bonds of any city official.  As soon as the accounts went through  and general business was taken up, the  mavor vetoed Mr. Lvon's appointment  as Clerk. At this W. E. Gomm, M. D.,  outside the railing, without.asking leave  of the council to speak, began a tirade  of abuse of the mayor, but showed his  ignorance to fine advantage in not knowing the difference between-a veto and a  casting votei In the midst of the harangue, the mayor ordered Constable  Waite to arrest the orator. This the  constable refused to do, as most people  believe, because of Miners' union affinities.;< What bothers most people is that  when men subscribe to a declaration of  office'to carefully guard the city's interests, theyrare willing to fleece.the  city out of money to pay extravagant  salaries to wholly inexperienced officials  out of deference to sympathies with the  Miners'union. In their private capacities even aldermen have a perfectright  to hold whatever relations, they like  with the union or any other body of  men, but at the Council Board they  have no right to see things in any other  light than the business interests of the  city as a whole!  We repeat again and again the taxpayers of Sandon will stand by the  mayor and some of the aldermen in their  efforts to prevent the place from becoming game for high salary hunters.  The next day, Tuesday, was also a  lively one. It leaked out Monday evening that Gomm would serve the Bank  with a garnishee next day for his smallpox bill, when it was thought the bank  would be loaded with license' money.  However, as soon as the bank was open  steps were taken to draw all that was  there, and the collector in the meantime  had deposited nothing. But here another trouble arose. Though Aid. Jalland was named as chairman of finance  he declined to act by refusing .^countersign the cheques, though he that day  singned one he held himself,as many believe to hold the money there until  Gomm would nab it with his garnishee,  and let a score or more of other creditors  including employees, go without their  money for months. When Jalland refused to act, the mayor was appointed  chairman; the bank was notified accordingly, and all the money left for the  garnishee���������that appeared an hour later  ���������was seven cents.  The change of chairman of finance  was a sharp curve, but then there was  no other course open to enable many to  get their money, who badly needed it.  As, however, there is still about $1,000  of accounts passed and no money for  them, the "smallpox" bill is likely to  remain a "poor man's plaster" for some  time. If suit follows the only course  open to the council is to sue the hospital  in turn, that was in law and equity  bound to have treated the case in the  first place.'.    .  In any event the chief Miners' union  representativeshows toexcellent advantage throughout the whole picture. He  took office to show the citizens of Sandon  what official economy is. He vouched  for his own accouut, saddled the city as  he thought with $220 unnecessarily for  an inexperienced clerk; O. K'd an account for Mr. Jalland that should have  been paid by Mr. Nye, and when he saw  no more bones to peck to add to his  meteoric brilliancy, he resigned ani^  tried to gobble the little available cash  with a garnishee, and leave a score of  other creditors wait a twelvemonth.  Now, gentlemen, don't the city want a  full .board of aldermen endowed with  similar magnanimity and wholesouled  generosity? Are not the whole of the tax  payers under a debt of gratitude to the  doctor?   Don't they want him again?  Our Financial Position.  A3 Sandon city's half year came  around on the first instant," our financial position can more readily be arrived  at. ,It is as follows:  LIABILITIES.  Sinking fund $ 2000  Gomm's smallpox bill  900  Old water account  1281  Notes '.  1600  Electric light account  300  April accounts, passed  822  May        "        "          925  June accounts, passed & unpaid .. 803  Safe and freight........................... 293  Total. .............;...............$ 8,914  ASSETS.  Real estate taxes last year...$2633  Cash on hand......     158  Licenses not collected, say....     50  Total............ ...'-..        2,841  Liabiliti'es'over assets...............';'....$'6,073  As nearly as possible the city owed  $6,000 on the 1st inst. without a dollar  of anything 'available to meet it. Of  course, in office furniture, safe, team,  &c, there is perhaps $750, but it is not  of a class to pay bills.  Of course about $2,500of thisdebt will  be met out of licenses, &c, coming in  this month, but it is using the revenue  that is required for the second half  year's expenses leaving us in January  next just whereWe are now.  Who will say the reckless expenditures of the past can be continued and  have the city prosper? We have gone  to Borne - trouble to present thingH  as they are to our readers, and we take  it there are some who will not thank us  fur the trouble.  The Rossland Strike.  There is something very strange in  the miners' strike at Rossland. The  Union constitution provides as follows:  "It shall be unlawful for any local  union to enter upon a strike unless ordered by three-fourths of its resident  members in good standing."  It ia said the Rossland union has 700  members in good standing, and at the  meeting calling tho strike the vote  stood:  For the strike '.'    258  Against the strike      82  Spoiled ballots       4  Total ���������    344  Here 258 members decided on aconm?  their constitution declares it took 525  members to decide. There were just  exactly three-fourths of those present  at the meeting in favor of the strike, including the spoiled ballots. It looks  very much as if the machine men had a  hand in spoiling these four ballots to  make the strike a go. . The dissatisfied  miners or those who opposed the strike  have a nice thing to investigate, if they  will only do it.  It is estimated that by the year 2200  there will be 1,000 people for every  square mile of the earth'H surface, and  that then the world will be full. Ot  course* it need not concern any one at  present living.  A. R. Heyland is surveying claims at  Cody.  Chas. Hunter returned to Phoenix on  Wednesday.  The C. P. R. is winning in the strike  in Manitoba.  D. J. McLachlan has finished painting  the schoolhouse.  The new Taylor safe for the city council arrived this week.  Jack Thompson left a few days ago to  visit friends in Boston.  A number of the Rossland miners have  arrived in the camp already.  About 75,000 men are out on the great  American-steel works strike.  Mr. Muller, C. P. R. auditor, was in  Sandon a few days this week.  Geo. McDonald, of the Noble Five,  went to Spokane on Thursday.  D. St. Denis, of the Yale-Columbia  Lumber Co., was in town Monday.'  Mr. Thos. Mitchell, the well known  concentrator builder, Is in the city.  Mr. Ransom has received the appointment of book-keeper at the Payne.  Subscriptions taken at Cliffe's bookstore for Winnipeg Free Press for 60c.  per month.  Mr. B. J. Perry, of Victoria, formerly  manager of the Noble Five, was in the  city this week.    '.,".-'  In the Harris-Pitts suit the costs have  run up to $500. Courting is expensive  even in British Columbia.  Mr. David Heap; of the Last Chance,  has gone to Banff. He is not in the  possession of even average health.  Mrs. E. B. Dill, of Greenwood, who  has been visiting friends here for some  time! returne.dLhome las Saturday.  . Mr::^ W/ Wright writes; that.he will  shortly. ,be back in Sandon "again working on the Palmi'ta and other properties.  Four hotels and seven saloons took out  licenses on Monday; /one hotel and two  saloons have put off the matter for the  present.     , , ;  Miss M. English   has  resigned   her  ! position  as   teacher    in.   the   Sandon  school, and accepted a vacancy in the  Kaslo school.    .    '  The Rossland miners' strike is likely  to be a fight to a finish, by which some  1^500 men are likely to be either out of  work or get it elsewhere.  Cliff Seale is back from the Similkameen, and says that section is bound to  go ahead on account of its mining,  ranching and farming' resources.  The Similkameen Valley Coal Company, in which, a number of Sandonites  are charter members, has been incorporated by the provincial government.  There has been a great demand for  the Mining Review some time past.  Four different parties requiring a couple of dozen extra copies each last week,  and about the same number being already secured for this issue.  A man living not 100 miles from Sandon, wrote to an American advertiser  on vegetable growing, asking for" the  beat method of raising carrots, sending  60 cents for the information. The answer came back: "Take hold of the tops  and pull for all your are worth." That  enquirer after knowledge is not yet  happy.  We made a mistake in last issue in  saying there were three aldermen present at the Friday meeting at which  Gomm resigned. There were but two  besides Gomm and the mayor, so that  when Gomm resigned there were but  two and the mayor, and, therefore, no  quorum. Four always constitutes a  quorum.      ���������'  Sandon Ore  The following are the ore  from here this week:  Mine.  Slocan Star   Payne .' ���������������������������  Trade Dollar....

Crandell,   of  Lindsay,  .Tolls   How ��������� He   Secured  Released From This Dan-  ; gerous Malady.  From tlie Watchman, Lindsay, Ont.  In the town of Lindsay and surrounding- country no man is better  known or more highly respected than  .Capt. Geo. Crandell. Forty-seven  years ago he was owner and captain  of the first steamer that navigated  the Seugog. Since that time success  has   crowned his life   both   on land  "I BEQUEATH MY SKULL."  Some Wills That  Greatly Surprised  the  Legatees.  It is related that a certain very  wealthy miser was much puzzled during his last illness as to whom to  bequeath his property. Finally one  day he received from a relative a letter written on an inch of paper. This  decided the question. Instead of  being annoyed'at such disrespect, the  miser's avarice got tho better of his  pride, and he declared the writer  should be his heir, esteeming him  worthy to be his successor in parsimony.  John Reed was gasfitter of the  Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, and filled the post for forty-'  four years  with  a punctuality    and  and water.   For forty-nine years   he I fidelity rarely equalled;   there is not  Was a member of the .Lindsay town  council.   He is now 73 years of   age  and enjoys the best of health, but it  has not always    been    thus.      Some  years      ago the exposure and worry  incident to his calling began to  toll  upon his health,  and his heart showed signs of weakness.    I-lis sufferings  and complete restoration through the  tisc of Dr.  Williams'  Pink    Pills are  best told by himself.    To a reporter  ihe captain gave tho following story:  "Several years ago my heart began  " to bother me.     At first  I  took little  notice of it,  but the trouble gradually grew worse until I had to summon medical    aid.      I suffered much  pain and at times was  attacked by-  smothering    spells    which caused me  great    distress.       Frequently    these  spelij attacked me during the night  and    it    was    with difficulty that I  managed to breathe at all.      I consulted    several     doctors,     but their  medicine failed to benefit me.    I then  tried a much advertised remedy but  this also failed to help me.       I' had  always been    fond of smoking, but I  was in such poor health  that a few  pufl's from a cigar would distress me  so much that I had' to give it up altogether.    I grew worse day by day  und began to think my end was near  and that I would die from the trouble.    Some  time ago  I was  advised  to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.    After taking one box    i noted    an improvement in my condition and so I  continued their use.       I kept on improving    till  now I am as well and  strong    as I oyer was in my life before    and    have    not been bothered  with    the    least    sign of my former  malady for months.    I am now able  to enjoy a smoke as I used to without   feeling    the least distress.    All  this 1 owe to the greatest of all remedies,   Dr.   Williams'   Pink Pills."  Rich, red blood and strong nerves  are the keystone to health. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the most widely known and praised ,of medicines  because from first dose to last they  make new, life-giving blood,, and restore weak and shattered nerves,  bringing new health and strength.to  hitherto despondent sufferers. Do not  take any substitute���������do not take  anything that does not bear the full  name, "Dr. Williams''-Pink,'Pills for  Pale People,", on the wrapper around  the box. Sold by all dealers or by  mail post paid at 50 cents a box or  six boxes for $2.50. by addressing  the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont.  -f_  MARRrEDFIVE HUNDRED TIMES  To be married six times during the  honeymoon is an experience that  comes to few. Four years ago a village youtli and his sweetheart visiting a Michigan town, noticed a furniture dealer's advertisement ottering' a drawing-room suite to any  couple tliat consented to be married  publicly in his shop. They secured  the suite. Going on their wedding  trip to an Ohio town .they noticed a  similar advertisement there and repeated the performance. Then the  idea struck the husband that lie  might arrange these matters himself,  and in two weeks he had persuaded  six dealers in various towns to emulate the others. Nominally the  couple won a specified prize at each  pJace, but they really received a  rcRflli consideration arranged before-  fosRd. So it has gone on ever since.  The couple now claim to havo been  married 500 times^ . v<(  on record a single representation at  which he was not present. Ho was  somewhat of a character, and appears to have had his mute ambitions. As he never .aspired, however, to appear on the stage in his  lifetime, he imagined an ingenious  device for assuming a role in one of  Shakespeare's plays after his decease. .'It was the skull of Hamlet,  and to this end .he wrote a clause  in his will thus:  "My head to be separated from my  body immediately after my death;  the latter to be buried in a grave ;  the former, duly macerated and prepared, to be brought to the theatre,  whcrci I have served all my life, and  to be employed to represent the skull  of Yorick���������and to this end I - bequeath my head to the properties."  Others have bequeathed their skulls  to their friends or to public institutions. Cartouche requested, when  on the wheel, that his skull might be  preserved in the Genovevan monastery at Paris, and accordingly it is  to be seen to this day in the library  of that building, as Eugene Aram's  skull is daily seen and handled in  York  Castle,  England.  AN' ECCENTRIC TESTATOR,  having been told that, if the proper  formalities required by the law of  wills were complied with, it was immaterial whether the said will were  written on parchment, paper, canvas, or wood, elected to write his  on his door. The executors had,  therefore, no choice but to have the  door unscrewed from its hinges and  carried into court for probate before it could be administered .  Not long ago there died in New  York a gentleman, supposed to be  sane, who left the following testamentary directions:  . "T bequeath all my fortune to my  nephews and ncices, seven in number;  they are to share it equally, and on  no account to go to law about, it,  on pain of forfeiting their respective  shares.  "I own seventy-one pairs of trousers, and 1 strictly enjoin my executors to hold a public sale at which  these shall be sold to the highest  bidder and the proceeds distributed  to the poor of the city. I desire  that these garments, shall in no way  be examined or meddled with, but  ���������be disposed of as they may be found  at the time of my death; and no one  purchaser is to buy more than one  pair."  As the testator had always been  more or less eccentric in his ways,  no one was much surprised at these  singular clauses, which were religiously observed. The sale was held  and the seventy-one pairs of trousers were sold to seventy-one different purchasers. One of these, In examining the pockets, discovered in a  pocket, a packet of some sort, closely sewn up. He lost no time in cutting the thread, and was not a little surprised to find a bundle of bank  notes representing SI,000. The  news soon spread, and each of the  others found .himself possessed of a  similar amount.  That's saying a good deal, but it is.a true statement.  Yon can verify it yourself. A trial will prove the truth or  falsity of  tlie above- statement.  .,  Ccyion Teas are sold in Sealed Lead  Packets only. Black, flixed, Uncofored  Ceylon Green. Free samples sent.

The President of the United States  who receives a salary of 850,000 a  year, must pay for all the food consumed at the White House; and the  expenses of getting up an elaborate  State dinner are not small. Cigars  and wines the President buys, and  they must be the best. He has to  maintain his own equipage. The  Government, however, allows him a  valet, also a, clerk, who opens ail his  letters. All other personal servants  must bo engaged by tho master and  mistress of tho White House.  i������r  FSOM THE FLAII  NEWS  OF   ANOTHER   SUCCESS  ON" THE  PART OF DODD'S  KIDNEY  PILLS.  An Alberta Man Reports His Entire Satisfaction with the  World Famous Remedy���������Blood  Disorder the Cause of His Trouble���������Dodd's Kidney Pills Have  Removed it and he is Thankful.  -^  A pedlar has just been thrown out  of the second story window by the  proprietor of the house. Coming up  he thrusts his head again in the.  room, Now, sir, joking aside, don't  you want to buy something ?  Blairmore, Alberta, July 1st���������  (Special).���������Dodd's Kidney Pills are  just as well thought of in the great  Northwest as they are any place else  in the world. The people have confidence in them. Thoy do ?s they  arc claimed to do.  Nor is the claim a small one.  Dodd's Kidney Pills are claimed to  cure some of the most dangerous  and deadly maladies that flesh is  heir to, and what is more, they do  it. The proof is positive. Thousands and thousands of reputable  people attest it.      ���������  For, instance everyone knows  Bright's Disease at one time meant  the sentence of death. Does it now?  Ask Arthur Colely, of Somerset,  Man. He. was cured of Bright's Disease, the last stages of it, by Dodd's  Kidney Pills.  Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure the  lesser disorders of the human system arising from Kidney Disease  with just as much certainty and an  even greater promptness. Of these,  Skin Eruptions, such as Boils and  Pimples, ��������� arising from an impure  state of the blood are not the most  uncommon or the least distressing.  Dodd's Kidney Pills, by improving  the action of the Kidneys purify the  blood, and Boils and Pimples immediately   disappear.  Walter H. A. Noble of Blairmore,  Alberta; writes in this connection:  "I had been troubled with Pimples,  all over my face," and Backache. I  tried everything to cure it, all kinds  of medicine,, but failed.  "I was told to try Dodd's-Kidney  Pills' and did so at once. ; r.I-got  three boxes of. Dodd.'s Kidney Pills  and took one after every meal.  They cured me. They are the only  things that ever did me any good. I  will always use Dodd's Kidney Pills  in caso of sickness and advise all  other sufferer's to do so."  CHINESE AS  JOKERS.  .  Writer  Tells  of Their Ideas    of  Honesty and Practical Jokes.  A writer in the London Sketch,,  who speaks of having spent several  years in China, writes of Chinese  servants and their ideas of honesty  and practical jokes.  "The most ominous sign preceding  the present outbreak," says the writer,  "was   that   the   'boys'    in Tien  Tsin left their masters, as they   are  also    doing   now in    the    south   of  China.     A  Chinese  'boy' is a faithful  servant,  and when  he leaves his  master for no cause there is sure to  be mischief abroad, generally with a  secret society at the bottom of   it.  If a master in' China, trusts his 'boy'  implicitly,   the  servant generally responds by  being  absolutely honest ;  but if the master thinks he can take  care of 'his own valuables he'   finds  that he is mistaken.    I had at Hong  Kong a first-class  'boy,'  whom generations of subalterns had nicknamed  'Scamp,' the .only name I ever knew *  him by.     'Scamp,'  if  trusted     with  money, would always account for it  to the utmost farthing.     One   day���������  it was just before the  Chinese   New  Year,     tlie .only  time   at  which  tho  Chinamen make   holiday   and   spend  their savings���������I brought homo some  bank notes and put them in a drawer.     The next afternoon I looked in  the  drawer for  the  notes,   but they  had   vanished.      I    called    'Scamp,'-  who appeared with an absolutely im- ,  passive    face.      Ho   knew      nothing/  about the notes,  and instead of   allowing me to lecture him, read me a  lesson.        'Master' he said,   'go   this  side, go that side; he no savvy what  he do with his money.     More better '  next time, give Scamp take care of./1  1 took his advice and never lost  ANY MORE MONEY.  for tho  "The Chinese 'boys' are not at ali  averse to having a joke among themselves at their master's expense. Sitting at dinner one day in the Hong  Kong Club, I noticed a gentleman  who had come down from some northern port become excited. Ho had  been brought a letter by a solemn-  faced Chinese butler, and he.saw,  something on the outside of this letter which sent him downstairs two  steps at a time to interview the hall  porter. When he came back he told  us what was the matter. The hall  porter had inscribed on the envelope  in Chinese, for the information of  the butler, 'This is for the old baboon with white fur.' Unfortunately for the hall porter, the little, gentleman was a first-class scholar in  the Chinese language. He discovered  later a fine joke which the chief, sign  painter of the island, had played .'on  the European residents..;, AH the officials and the professional men had  their, names in English- and in Chinese, inscribed on a board at'the gates  of tlieir houses. ' The :. sign, painter  had used his ingenuity to make the  Chinese letters which represented;the  sound of the English, name mean  something insulting.

As a matter of fact Ruh-  nir; Rein did win; but an objection  wa   immediately laid on behalf of  Ortndo,  belonging to Colonel Peel.  vrj> came in second.    The litigation  tit ensued proved conclusively that  Ifiming    Rein    was,    in    reality a  hrsc    named    Maccabeus,  who was  faled in 1S40, and that    the    plot  ltd been concocted and carried out  y a Jewish  bookmaker,' who,  with  is confederates, hoped to    net    the  ice little sum of ������50,000.    During  /the trial the body of the Unfortunate  /Leander    was    exhumed, by order of  /the Court, and  7 THE LOWER JAW  found to have been removed, as stated. The upper one, however, was  submitted to two eminent "vets.,"  each of whom declared the owner  thereof to have been four years old  at least.     Warrants  were  thereupon  ��������� issued for tho arrest of the principal  conspirators, who,' however, fled tho  country. .      ���������  A typical instance of turning the  tables on a similar gang of scoundrels is furnished by a case that was  at the time the talk of the whole  racing fraternity. It occurred in  connection with Lord Avil's stables  at Doncaster.     Pellets  of sweetened  ��������� strychnine were found in St. Ledger  favorite's manger, with the result  that his trainer, after consulting'  with Lord .Av.il, had the horse removed secretly to other quarters.  In the loose-box formerly occupied  by him there was placed a very  s'cedy animal, swathed up to the  nose, with Lord Avil's cipher on his  clothing, and the name of the favorite over the door. He was kept  close, never allowed to go out, and  IT WAS DARKLY HINTED  that the favorite had gone wrong,  and that it was very, questionable  whether he would run.  Naturally, the bait was eagerly  swallowed by the plotters, who had  their own very excellent reasons for  believing the rumors to be true.  Their dismay can be imagined when  the reai favorite cantered to the  post, on the eventful day, in pex-fect  form. He won easily, to the intense disgust of the rogues who had  been laying 100 and 150 to 1  against him, believing Kim to be little better than a dead 'un." Lord  Avil and his friends netted amongst  them some ������25,000, the larger portion of which came out of the pockets of the criminals.  To poison a horse is bad enough.  To poison a. man is, of course, far  worse.      Yet    even this latter atro-,  publicly o/Tercd for  that would lead to  cious crime has not been altogether  absent from the chronicles .of Eng-  glish racing. A notable instance is  afforded by the murder, by means of  arsenic mixed with his food, of Sir  Charles Bunbury's . training groom,  a man named Cox. The victim had  purposely given false information  concerning a marc named Eleanor to  some low7 racing touts. When he was  dying it is reported that he called  the clergyman to his bedside, and,  in whispered and broken accents, implored him to back Eleanor for, the  double event���������the Derby and tho  Oaks���������adding that she was as certain to carry them off as the sun  was to rise on the following day.  As a matter of fact, she did win  both these classic races; but, needless to say, the worthy clergyman  did not profit thereby.  Details concerning many of the  worst crimes, involving the "nobbling."  OR ATTEMPTED NOBBLING  of the favorites for classic races,  never really comes to .light at all.  Tho men who plot these coups are  astute and cunning, are usually dan-  gerous, customers to interfere with,  and have plenty of money at their  command. Hence they are left severely alone by those "in the know,"  either through, fear, or through self-  interest. .Who, for instance, were the  members of the gang which, in 1SD.2  "got at" the Duke of Westminster's  Orme? Columns were written about  the affair in the Press at tho time,  and ������1,000 was  any information  the arrest of the criminals: yet tho  names of the real culprits were never  even hinted at. Nevertheless, the  men arc known; and there is certain  to be on the course at every big  meeting more than one of them,  with check suit and impassive face,  lustily shouting the .odds.  There is also tho, story, well  known to all racing -men, and most  certainly true, concerning.a certain  Derby favorite, who should have  won, but who did not.. It is now  known that the trainer had been  ^bribed���������������15,000 is the sum which  has since been montioned���������and that,  on the night preceding the race, he  had, ��������� with' his,, own. hands, taken off  the horse's plates, and pricked him  slightly in each of his heels, not  enough to make him go lame, but  quite sufficient to spoil his chance of  winning.  This was some years, ago. "Nobbling" now, it is, perhaps, hardly  necessary to say, is conducted on far,  more scientific principles. There are  drugs known to the initiated, so  sure, yet so evanescent, that detection, after they have once been administered, is practically impossible.  A, racehorse.is a very delicate machine. Even an extra drink of  water, just, before leaving the stable  for the post/ may make all the difference between winning and' losing.  A pailful would be almost certain to  do the trick.  Finally, mention ought to bo made  of a criminal conspiracy that was  nipped in the bud, owing to the presence of mind of the  FAMOUS TRAINER JOHN SCOTT.  The horse that was to be "doped"���������  to use the modern slang term���������was  Cotherstone, whom Scott was training for Lord Westminster, and with  whom he was confident of carrying  off the Derby against the favorite���������  PERSIA'S SHAH AT HOME,  Gaper. The la.tter had been backed  for enormous sums���������Lord George  Bentinck alone had ������1SO,000 on it���������  and a ring had been formed���������of  course without the knowledge or consent of that nobleman���������to try to  bribe the "Wizard of the North."  They little knew their man. "Scott,"  said a friend afterwards, who was  present in an ante-room during the  interview, "never looked angrier."  Rushing out of the room, he grabbed a heavy whip, crying out: "That  cad in there has actually offered mc  twenty thousand pounds to permit  his dirty touts to get at Cotherstone! I'll thrash the life out of  him!" But "that cad" had taken  fright and fled,      ���������  KEEPS UP   THE    CUSTOMS  HIS    PREDECESSORS.  OF  His Principal Palace Has No Pretence  to  Architectural  Beauty.  ���������Magnificent  Jewels.  Prior to the Shah's visit to Europe the London Daily Magazine published tho following article:  . The'visit to Europe of MuzaiTcr-cd-  Din Shah (Victorious of the Faith)  is of special interest if only from the  fact that, although before his accession, he had governed the great province of Azerbaijan for at least thirty years, yet his father never permitted him to stir out of Persian territory. Born in 1S53, he came to  tho throne with great administrative  talent, the fruits of long training,  and at once gained the hearts of his  subjects by removing in perpetuity  through Persia the tax on meat and  bread which pressed so heavily upon  the poorer classes. To this ina.y  probably be attributed the almost  total absence of great disorders and  riot, which usually herald the accession of an Eastern monarch. The  Shah is a strong ruler, humane, an  able scholar and philosopher, with'a  strong leaning towards religion, unmixed with fanaticism. Tie is also  a fine shot and a good horseman.  Among the entourage the most.important personage is the Amin-cs-  Sultan, Sadr-Azam. or Prime Minister, who accompanied the late Shah  on his European tour in 1SS9. He  holds the almost unique record in  Persia of having been Prime Minister  to both father and son. Of humble  births he has forced his way to the  highest position in the country by  sheer.:.- talent, energy and force of  character. He is ��������� frank and attractive in his demeanor, as many of  those who have visited Teheran will  testify, and popular with all classes.  In Lis person is exemplified the fact  that lowness of birth is no bar to  the highest promotion, -which reconciles the people more than anything |  else to the pernicious and elaborate j  system of "squeezing" which goes on j  from the highest to the lowest.

The most interesting object from  an historical point of view is the  "Takht-i-Taus," or Peacock. Throne,  in the Council Room of the Palaccr  said to have been brought by Nadir'  Shah in 1739 from the sacking of  Delhi, where it stood in the Divan-i-  Khas. Grave doubts have arisen affecting its authenticity, for the original is said have been broken up at  the death of Nadir Shah; but even if  this be so it is an exact copy of the  original, and withal an exquisite,  work of art. Overlaid with gold,  which is beautifully chiselled and  enamelled, it is encrusted with precious stones, among which rubies  and emeralds predominate. The  platform is supported by seven Jc-gs,  access to which is gained by two  steps decorated with salamanders.  Tn the centre is a circular star, set  with diamonds, made to revolve, and  on either side of the star are two bejewelled peacocks from which it  takes its name. Its value is variously estimated at from one to two  millions.  The Shah's excursions from and  about the capital arc of a necessity  so very frequent that they do not  arouse much curiosity among tho natives, but whenever accompanied by  the "Shaiirs," or runners, with their  quaint dress, particularly the tall  hat with colored crest like a cock's  comb, his cortege never fails to arrest the attention of Europeans. It  is  A. CUSTOM OF GREAT ANTIQUITY,  the dress being exact in every detail  to    that    used  in    Sefavean times,  some two. or    three thousand, years  back.    Biblical-students  will  find  a  parallel     to the custom by referring  to the  book of Kings,  wherein it is  said  that Acionijah exalted    himself  saying,  "I will lie king:  and prepared him chariots    and horsemen and  j fifty men to run before him."

Travellers  had then no option but to follow  his road, use his caravanserais, and  pay tolls.

How to get that health all  round it: take Scott's emulsion  of cod-liver oil and be careful  We'll send you a little to try if you like.  Some people reason very strangely.  We have   before   us a copy of a labor  paper, dealing with mining in the Coeur  d' Alenes, that comes to some very comical conclusions.   The paper states that  eleven mines in that district last year  worked by 2,500 men   mining and 400  developing, produced $11,075,000 worth  of ore; that tlie wages at $3.50 per day  amounted to  #8,050,000;    that   freight  and treatment cost $2,190,000; $1,000,-  000 more went into new. machinery, and  $500,000 went into incidentals, or a total  outlay altogether of $7,3-10,000, leaving  $4,000,000  for a few men in dividends.'  The print goes on   to reason that the. scott & bowne, chciuu,  owners get altogether too much money j  and the miners altogether too little.   If  this was the history'of mining the world  over, our confrere's contention would be  indisputably sound.    When it is not the  repetition of history, the adsurdity of  the reasoning of the print comes plainly  to the surface.   In   the   first  place we  may say these mines did not pay that  way from the first strike of the pick up  ���������a large sum of money had  to be spent  in   driving   tunnels,   building    wagon  roads, erecting bunk houses, &c, before  a cent was realised.    During all these  operations the men were drawing their  wages while the owners were drawing  their purse strings.   The owners  must  '��������� be ' allowed   for   all tlieir expenditures  and interest on money in all these channels before their "present profits are considered profits at all.    But this is not  all.   It is quite   safe   to   say the world,  over that not more than one mine in  . every ten  pays.   Supposing then that  the owners of  the mines  at   Coeur d'  Alenes owned all the mines  that were  ever operated in the world, and that tlie  miner's at the Coeur'd'Alenes did all  the mining ever done in the world, they  (the miners) wouldjuive got their $3.50  a day in   all the properties  that were  ever worked���������they would have met with  no losses, but would have made $2.50 a  day from the first of mining operations.  The owners on the other hand losing in  ten prospects for every  one that paid,  would in the end have made infinitely  less money than the men did  who got  their $3.50 a day clear.  The trouble in all these cases is that  labor and labor advocates persist in  taking into account every dollar that  employers ever make out of labor, but  they will never allow a cent for all the  losses they everincur through tiie employment of labor. Wage earners very  seldom lose their capital in trade, em-  players do not win the world over in  more than one case out of ten. To be  honest and make a fair comparison of  what capital is making out of labor, the  losses it incurs by the employment of  labor must first be deducted. By the  employment of labor, capital enables  millions to earn a living and something  more, while labor employed lias enabled  thousands to make millions of dollars of  losses, often falling on innocent parties,  those who provided materials and many  other supplies.  Toronto.  also the third year pointed out the back  taxes of the first and second years  should be- thus invested. Had this  been done, there would be in the  hands ol the debenture holders a record of those taxes by which they  could be collected, and relieve the  city of its present liability for sinking  fund. We are informed Gilbert Malcolm Sproat, who wrenches tlie last cent  he can get out of Sandon tenants, has  never yet paid one cent of taxes in the  place, and that his full indebtedness is  in excess of what the city owes the sinking fund. Had the disposal of his taxes  intimated herein been observed, his property would now be liable for all the  city owes in sinking fund, and the city  would be free of $2,000 of its present  liabilities. When inexperience rules,  and its shortcoming is lauded,.the pub  lie invariably, suffer.  Mr. Houston is very busy hunting the  world over for scraps of argument to  assure the country the mine owners of  Kootenay could work their mines under existing circumstances if they were  only desirous of doing so. The aim then  is to turn the guns of the public on the  heads of these owners for satisfaction  for the present stagnation of business.  Mr. Houston and his coterie of chuck-  lers know'as well as so man}' men can  know that if the mining laws of the  province were left intact as they were  four years ago, there would have been  none of the business troubles of the past  three years in the country. Is it then  not more consistent and more honorable for the people to hold the real first  cause of the trouble responsible than  that imagined to be the cause by these  crying "Stop thief." It is on the heads  of the basswood politicians of British  Columbia the business people must  place the responsibility for their loss of  business the last thro���������e years, and upon  no others.  ^ HEYLAND,  j     ENGINEER,  AND FViNCIAL LAND SURVEYOR.

This is one pure and ingenious way to  raise the wind. .Some time in the history of Sandon, we won't say how far  back, the baseball kids got it into their  heads they wanted white pants, and  they did not know how to raise the $10  to pay for them. At length this novel  idea was suggested by one, and it took  like a charm: A young couple was  married a few days before, and the newly created hnsband was told that if he  did not put up the $10 they would  charivari (the Bluestreak spells it shiv-  eree)him. As the gentleman is not specially fond of music, he concluded to put  up the X. He accepted Hobson's choice  and the boys all got their baseball  pants.  Operating   KASLO & SLOCAN RY.

It is  very difficult, to keep preserves,  though they are done up in the heaviest syrups, through the hot summer-  months. Preserve all tho strawberries that you are to put up in their  own weight or three-quarters of  their weight of sugar. They will  usually require this amount of  sugar to be agreeable to the taste  on tlie table. The amount of sugar  used depends on the acidity of tho  berries.  The first pineapples that are fit  for preserving are the genuine sugar-  loaf pineapples. Theco do not become cheap until tho first week of  July. These pineapples have a shallow eye and are very sweet. Good  pineapples of this kind can often be  purchased iu the middle of .summer  for SI , a dozen, and they are so  sweet they do not require much sugar. A preserve, a marmalade or a  canned fruit may be satisfactorily  prepared from pineapples. A delicious preserve of pineapples is made  of this fruit cut-in cubes and left in  a cool place over night in three-  quarters its weight of sugar. In the  morning the juice of the fruit will  cover it. Cook il up in its own  juices for five minutes or until the  fruit is clear. Do not add any  water. This preserve can be sealed  up in airtight cans, and it is almost  certain to keep well even in hot  weather. A pineapple canned in aj  syrup made of a cup of water and a  cup of sugar is quite inferior to ono  cooked in its own juice with considerable sugar.  Apricols keep well, and when they  can bo obtained it pays  to  preserve  them    or    even    can them, for they j  make good pies.    All preserves, who-:  ther put in much or little sugar, aro j  now     canned     in     "airtight"   cans, '  though a "canned" fruit, technically'  speaking, means one put up in a lit-i  tie sugar and  depending on  the ex- >  elusion of all air to prevent it from j  spoiling.       Such fruits are delicious |  for    pies,- oven though  there is only  a small amount of sugar added, and-  thoy    are    useful    on the table as a  light preserve.  An excellent plan for keeping  strawberries, pineapples and other  fruits which have been put up early  is to pack the cans in a cold cellar  in a box of dry wet sand. This excludes the light as well as the heat,  which varies even in what is known  as a cold cellar.  STARCHING   SITIRTWATSTS.  If the shirtwaists are wanted very j  stiff they should be thoroughly dried j  before starching; if only moderately '  so, about half dried. The closer the J  weave of the goods the thinner the i  starch should be. Only white or  cream colored shirtwaists should be  dried in the sun, as everything fades  much more quickly when wot, being  subjected to what is really a. bleach-  i.- ing process.- They are better, however, dried quickly and this they will  do if hung in a breeze.  To make hot water starch, dissolve  a rounding tablespoonful of starch  it a little cold water with as much  tw.vix as will lie on a dime, dissolved in a tablespoonful of boiling  water (it will not melt in cold  water), and a quarter of an inch of  tallow candle. Pour on boiling  water until it reaches tho right consistency. If tho waists are wanted  stiff the starch should not be squeezed out too much before they are  hung to dry.  Clothes prepared in hot water  starch should be sprinkled when dry  with hot water instead of cold, as  the latter is liable to leave starch  spots. Having reached this stage if  the shirt has stiff cuffs they and the  hollar must.be dipped in cold water  . starch, which is mixed in the following proportions: One rounding  tablespoonful of starch to a small  half pint of water, four drops of  spirits of turpentine and as much  borax as will lie on a dime dissolved in one tablespoonful of boiling  wateiv   Pour in a little of tlie water*  and mix up smoothly with the hand,  then pour in the rest of the water,  turpentine and dissolved borax, taking care not to get the sediment of  the latter, as it tends to produce  iron mould. This quantity is enough  for two shirtwaists.  First of all wet the sleeve all  round where it joins the cuff by dipping the fingers in the water and  rubbing them over it, taking care  not to wet the cuff itself; if the collar- is, attached treat it in the same  way. ��������� Then gather the sleeve tightly  into the hand and clip the cuff into  the starch, stirring the latter up  each time with the finger. Rub tho  starch well in, redip the cuff in tho  same manner and squeezing the wet  starch out rub it vigorously between  the hands. Treat the collar in the  same way. If one did not dampen  the adjoining portion of the sleeve  before starching the cuff, it would be  disfigured with starch spots. Roll  tho shirtwaists tightly and lay aside  for an hour or more.  WITH RIPE PEACHES.  Peach Meringue: Peel and cut in  quarters 1 qt fine ripe peaches, place  them in a baking dish, sprinkle with  white sugar and cover with stiflly  whipped whites of' 3 eggs, in which  2 tablespoons white sugar have been  stirred. Set-tho dish in a slow oven  until the meringue is very delicately  browned, then cool and set on ice.  Serve with a cold custard made with  the yolks of the eggs, 1 pt rich  milk, 2 tablespoons white sugar and  .V teaspoon almond extract.  ' Peach .Shortcake: Make a crust  with 1 qt. sifted flour, 3 teaspoons  baking powder, 1 saltspoon salt, 2  heaping tablespoons butter and sufficient milk to make a light dough.  IUix the dry ingredients together,  then work in the butter and add the  milk. Cut the dough into three  equal portions, roll each but to the  thickness of half an inch, and bake  in a quick oven to a light brown.  When done remove the pans from the  oven, let cool a minute, then carefully lift out one crust, lay it on a  largo plate and spread tho top with  soft butter. Cover it with a generous layer'of thinly sliced, rich flavored 'peaches,' sprinkle with sugar,  add the next crust and continue thus  until each layer is used. The top  layer should bo of the peaches.  Serve cold with rich sweet cream,  plain or whipped.  Peach Pie: Line a pie plate with a  rich paste, and set it in a hot oven  for 10 minutes. Fill with thinly  sliccd ripe poaches, sweeten liberally,  add 2 teaspoons water and a few1  chopped almonds or peach kernels,  cover with a top crust and bake in  a quick oven.

ELUDE  Ha  llow TO LAUNDER CURTAINS.  Housekeepers , generally regard the  laundering of lace curtains a difficult task, one beyond the ability of  the home launderers, hence incur unnecessary expense in sending their  curtains to a professional launder-  er's every spring. If attention be  given the work it may be done at  homo very satisfactorily by any ordinary washer-woman, under the  supervision, of course, of the mistress herself. After taking the curtains down from the windows shake  them well to remove tho dust and  loose dirt. A bright day should  be selected and everything in readiness before the work is begun. A  tub of good size is best, and the  washing should be done with the  hands, a wash-board or machine not  A HAUNTED  HOUSE.  Story From Scotland  of  a  Ghost  And a Series  of Dreams.  Some years ago my wife had repeated dreams of a house, the interior arrangement of which she described minutely, although*no idea as  to its locality was conveyed to her,  says a writer in the London. Spectator. Subsequently in the year  lSG.'J, I hired for the autumn    from  Lady B  a house in the highlands/  with shooting and fishing; my son,  who was in Scotland at the time,  arranged the matter, neither my  wife nor I having seen the place.  When I wont (without my wife) to  make final arrangements for taking  possession Lady B  was still living in the house, and she told mo  that if I did not mind she proposed  putting me for the night into a bedroom which she herself usually occupied, and which for some time past  had been haunted by "a little lady"  who continually appeared in it. As  I was somewhat sceptical upon such  matters, I replied that I should bo  delighted to make the acquaintance  of her ghostly visitor, and I accordingly slept in the room, *but no  sucli visitor appeared to mo.  Subsequently, upon my wife's arrival at the house, she, to her great  astonishment, found it to be the  counterpart of < her dream house,  and on inspecting it from hall to attic every detail appeared to correspond. But on descending again,'to-  the hall, she said: "No this cannot  be -the house after all, as in my  dream there was another suite of  rooms on that side', which is missing  here."' She was at once told that  there was such a suite of apartments  not approached from the hall, and  on being taken over them she recognized every room. She, however,  said that a bedroom in this suite  appeared in her dream to be a.sitting room, and it appeared that this  had been the case, but that the arrangement had just been altered..  A day or two after, my wife and I  met    Lady    B ,  and I introduced  the two ladies to each other, as they  had not previously been acquainted.  Instantly    Lady    B exclaimed,  "Why, you arc the lady, who haunted my bedroom." I have no, explanation to offer, nor had my wife  during the , rest of her life, as to  what some might call a remarkable  coincidence, and what would be called in the highlands a case of second sight. Certainly my dear wife  was the last person in the world to  give undue license to her imagination, and further, I can vouch for  the fact, and so can other members  of my family, that she did undoubtedly describe accurately a house  which had some rather remarkable  arrangements, and fhis !<>r.g before  she or any other members of tho  family were even aware that such a  house really existed.,  FISH   150   YEARS   OLD.  There are some gold-fish in Washington which have belonged to the  same family for the last fifty years,  and they seem no bigger and no less  vivacious to-day than they did when  they first'came into the owner's possession. A few of the fish in tho  Royal Aquarium at St. Petersburg  are known to be 150 years old, and  the age of the sacred fish in some of  the ponds attached to the Buddhist  temples in China is to be counted by  centuries, if we are to believe the  priests^  Recent  Trial in  Germany Elicited  The Many Ways in Which  It Is Done.  Probably the most sensational trial  which has taken place in- Germany  for very many years past was that  recently concluded at Elbcrfcld,  when nearly forty persons, including,  several doctors, were charged with  being concerned in obtaining the release of recruits from military service by illegal medical practices.,  During the course of tho trial, which  occupied twenty-one days, some astounding facts came to light regarding methods .which have been  employed to cause conscripts temporary illness or deformity, in .order  that they might escape their term of  military duty.  Several recruits confessed to having received and taken picric acid  pills in order to produce feigned  jaundice, and even pills to produce  temporary affection of the heart,  which had been supplied for the purpose by the persons implicated in  the trial. In several cases, too, recruits had been advised to use certain glasses, for the purpose of producing- short-sightedness, while a  temporary affection was also caused  by pouring some secret mixture into  the cars.  Conscripts were also shown how to  cleverly feign rupture, while consumption was also simulated by  throwing up blood, which had previously been swallowed. 'And so  cleverly were these practices carried  out that "the army doctors were deceived over and over again, and reported young fellows unfit for service who had  BEEN OPERATED  UPON.  In fact several army doctors wero  also charged, in the earlier stages of  the trial, with being concerned in  helping unwilling recruits to escape,  but were afterwards honorably acquitted, the other prisoners receiv- -,���������  ing sentences ranging from throe  months to seven years.  ��������� Recruit faking is also practised to  a' large, extent in Russia, probably  more so than in any other country  in which the laws of conscription  are enforced. So skilfully, however,  is the business managed that, the police experience the greatest difficulty  in, tracing the * parties concerned.  But a few months ago the authorities at Moscow succeeded in arresting a woman who for several years  past has' made quite a comfortable  income by artificially mutilating  young fellows who wished to escape  their term of military service.  Her favorite method was to inject  under the skin of the finger and too  joints some preparation of petroleum, which produced a very natural-  looking contraction of the joint operated upon. Her clients were chiefly the sons of poor people, who  could not afford to pay much for being "faked," although many of tho  well-to-do often placed themselves in  her hands.  It appears that the woman's husband, who died about two years ago  had also carried on this extraordinary trade, and after his death the  widow continued in the same business. The police had long had suspicions regarding the illegal operations which she carried on, but sha  had always managed to evade them,  until someone betrayed her by giving information to the authorities..  THE POLICE OF PARIS  recently unearthed a whole band of  persons who made large sums of  money by helping young Frenchmen  to escape conscription. Like tho  woman in Moscow, they made deformities to order, only the band  worked on a much larger scale.  Why, Clara, you look radiant f!  What has happened?

The Tom Moore force is being increased.  Alex. Dodds took up 15 miners to the  Bed Fox.  A good strike of galena had been made  on some claims just below the Payne.  The Monitor ore shed will be commenced by the carpenters next week.  The Reco people are making arrangements to start.up the mine with a very  full stall'of.miners.  Supplies and hardware have gone up  to the Canadian group, and Mr. Tinling  has started work already.  The Queen Bess management are  elated over their last strike, and will continue the work by a few men.  The Iron Hand at Whitewater, is being developed with a few men, and will  probably ship in a month's time.  Some of the ore piled along fhe K.&S.  track, belonging to the Whitewater mine,  is to be shipped to the Trail smelter.  Work has been dropped on the upper  tunnel of the Donnelly group and operation will be resumed in the lower working to tap the lead at depth.  The Last Chance shareholders held a  meeting this week. All the old officers  were re-elected, and arrangements are  being made to put on a good stall' of  miners.  The Ivaiihoe mill will likely start up  next week and run through the ore on  the dumps. Manager Iiickey says the  mine will not resume operations for  some time yet.  The Selkirk Mining Co. did not have  a meeting on Mondav, as there was not  enough stock represented. The mine  has been surveyed for a crown grant.  A number of the shareholders want the  mine opened up again.  The Rambler Mining Co. hold a meeting on the 25th 0/ this month, and  among other important matters to be  discussed is the erection of a concenti-a-  tor. About 90 men are working at tlie  mine and the staff will shortly be increased and the shipments larger.  , John L. Retallack, who has leased the  - Washington, has several men at work  and more will be taken on as soon as  circumstances permit. It is supposed  the idle concentrator of this property  will start up again before long, and the  mine enter the shipping list about next  fall.  Three cars of ore have been brought  down from the Wonderful and Mr.Warner says before long he will ship 10 tons  daily. Stoping in two of the tunnels  is going on steadily. On the Miller  Creek he has several men developing in  No. 1 tunm.'l, where a rich strike was  made as mentioned in onr last issue.  The Payne company have finished the  concentrating test at the Noble Five  mill, but it is undecided yet whether a  concentrator will be built or not. Work  on the compressor plant will be commenced next week, and,.a considerable  amount of grading will have to be done.  At the mine about 80 men are working  on contracts.       .
