Array 5^a^^^^   SJk^^  VOL 3.      NO. 22.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  Gil  118  WITH DISASTER-  Two   Regimants   and   a   Battery  '��������� Surrender.  Generous Offer of^Afnencan Women  in  England.  ������������������ London, Oct. 28.���������Thc government  has grate! ally accepted the ofler of the  ' American women in England to equip  'the fltnuraer Maine; which has been  lent without charge to thc British government by the Atlantic Transportation Compn'ny, us a hospital ship for  use in South African waters.  London! Oct. 2S.���������The War Office  posted ul. 'midnight a notice of the fight  nt Kimberlev, on Tuesday Inst, giving  the Briti&h casualties ns three privates  killed, Lieutenants R. A.'McClintock.  of K'VJii Engineers, J.G. Lowndes, nnd  0. M.'Binghain, and 16 privates were  wounded. The troops, according to the  report of the War Office, fought splendidly.  London, Oct. 29.���������General White's  despatch, which was dated at Lady-  smith nt G:30 p.m. today reads : "I employed nil the troops here, except the  obligatory garrison, before the works.  ,1 sent a mountain,battery, the Irish  Fusileers, and the Gloucester to take  up a position on the hills to clear my  Jeft Hank. The force moved at 11  o'clock last night, and during the night  firing the battery stampeded the mules  with some of the guns, which, however, I hope to recover. The battalions have not yet returned, but are'expected this, evening. I detailed two  brigade, divisions of artillery and five  battalions of infantry, aided by cavalry, under Genesv.1 French, to attack  Tiiita lngoni, a hill upon which the  enemy yesterday mounted guns. V>  found *th'������ position evacuated, bucjur  lorce was --.-.uickcrl wUh cbnsidernoio  vigor by what I believe were General  Joubcrt's troops. They had many guns  and showed ' in great numbers. Our  troops \vere all in action, and  wc pushed thc enemy back several  miles, but did not succeed 'in  reaching his laager. Our losses are  estimated at between 80 and 100, but  those of the enemy must have been  much greater, the'fire of our guns appearing very affective. After being in  action several hours, I withdrew the  i'roops, and they -returned unmolssted  to their cantonment. The enemy are  in great numbers, and their guns range  turther than our field guns. I now  have several guns temporarily silenced,  and hope will permanently dominate  the enemy's best gnns, with which he  has been bombarding the town at a  range of 6000 j arils."  London, Oct. 31.���������The following   is  the text of General White's dispatch to  the war office :   "Ladysmith, October  30,1.35 p. m,���������I have  ' o report a   disaster to the column sent by me to take  a position on a hill to  guard   the left  flank of the troops.   In these operations  today thc .Royal Irish Fusileers, No. 10  Mountain battery, and the Gloucestershire regiment Were surrounded  in the  hills, and'after, losing heavily had  to  capitulate. .The   casualties have   not  yet been ascertained    A man  of the  Fiisileersj    employed    as   a , hospital  orderly, came in under a flag of truce  with a letter from the survivors of the  column, who  asked for ' assistance   to  . bury the dead.   I fear there.is no doubt  of    the    truth    of   the    report.    I  found a plan, in the carrying out   of,  which the disaster occurred, and I am  alone responsible for the plan.   There  is no blame whatever to the troops, as  the position was untenable."  General White in  a subsequent dispatch says :    "The.following is the list  ofthe officers taken prisoners today:   '  Staff major Adye.  Irish Fusileers: Colonel Carlton,  Major Munn, Mnjor Kincard, Captain  Burrowed, Captain Itice, Captain Silver,  Lieutenant Heard, Lieutenant Soulhoy,  Lieutenant Phipps, Lieutenant McGregor, Lieutenant Honies, Lieutenant  Doone, Lieutenant Lentish, Lieutenant  Kinshaw, Lieutenant Jendwine, Chaplain Matthews. Of the above Captains  Bice and Silver were wounded.  Gloucestershire Regiment: Major  Humphrey, Major Capelgiire, Major  Wallace, Captain Duncan, Captain Connor, Captain Bryant, Lieutenant Nisbet,  Lieutenant Ingham, Lieutenant Davy,  Lieutenant Knox, Lieutenant Temple,  Lieutenant Radice, Lieutenant Breul,  Lieutenant 'Hill,' Lieutenant Short,  Lieutenant Smith, Lieutenant McKen-  xie, Lieutenant Beasley, Lieutenant  Gray. Of the above Captains Duncan  and Connor were wounded.  Royal Aatillory :   Major Bryant.  Mountain Battery : Lieurenant  Wheeler, Lieutenant Nugent, Lieutenant More, Lieutenant Webb.  The disaster to thc British is from  1100f,o2000menand a six 7-pound screw,  gun, and as the Boer artillery is ftl-  readv stronger than imagined, thc  capture of these guns will be a great  help to tho Boers.'  LACK OF AMMUNITION.  London, Nov. 2.���������A dispatch to the  Daily Telegraph 'from Ladysmith,  filed Monday night, giving a description of the battle, - says : A-'similar  stampede occurred to^the Lieutenant-  Colonel Grim wood's column in the  Bulwinside; tlie ammunition wasiost,  but our infantry quite held their own.  It. was a serious misfortune that- the  Powerful's blue jackets were not summoned sooner, as the result of r,he en-  gngement would have been'difl'erent."  Loudon, Nov. 3.��������� The Daily News  has a dispatchjthis morning from Ladysmith, dated Tuesday at 10:30 a. m.,  which gives the first independent  account of the cutling'oft'of Lieutenant-  Colonel Carleton's column in tho engagement ' at Farquhnr's farm. The  correspondent says: "The column was  sent out Sunday night, made a wide  detour, and reached the spurs of the  Drakensburg before dawn. Coionel  Carleton stormed the hights with a  baynotj and maintained his position  against great odds until his ammunition was exhausted and surrender had  become inevitable. Nearly 2U0 had  then been killed and wounded."  CASUALTIES AT FA 11 QUAE'S  FARM.  London, Nov. 3.���������At 1*2:40 a.m. the  war office issued the text of the despatch which is dated Ladysmith, November 2,10 a.m., giving the list of casualties among the officers, which is as  follows: Royal Artillery���������Killed, Lieutenant J- T.

HIl BOY  n  Ore Is Being Shipped to  Tram lo Be Buill  fioble Five.  ���������Everett-  to the  The American Boy mine, in the Slocan, is shipping oru, to the Everett  smelter. Thc first cur_ p,i������scd through  the city Wednesday. Former shipments have been to the Trail smelter.  At the office of tho cornpanj- it was  learned yesterday that the American  Boy is being steadily operated iu spite  of tho prevailing labo:* difficulties in  the Slocan. The company is reported  to be paying thc scale demanded by  the unions, and is said to employ 13  men. The'shipments average about  threp cars per month, '.but the superintendent is holding ,'tlie shipments  back somewhat, saving the ore for  raw-hiding, which will bo considerably  cheaper than packing.] The company  expects to be able to ssnd out a car of  ore per week after about 30 days.  A.t a meeting of the' American Boy  trustees,,a few days since, it was decided to build GOOfeet of tram in the  spring of 1900 to connect the mine  with tho Noble Five tram and concen-  traloi. This will enable the American  Boy to send down to the Noble Five  works a large amount of concentrating  ore which is on the dumps and in tho  stopes. This is expected to concentrate about four into one at a fine shipping value. Recently,the No. 4 tunnel  cut the ore body S00 feet below the  apex of the vein and the showing is  said to be four feet ���������of concentrating  ore.     .'      \ "'*?  could force the men ��������� to work longer  than eight hours if they did not waul  to do it, if the present law was without  penalties?  If the owners aske'l the men to work  longer than eight hours, and they felt  it to be to their interest to do so, is it  not a hardship to impose' penalties  which prevent them from disposing of  their labor as they see fit ?  Again, why is it that the penalties  apply tu underground work only, when  good* miners say they would rather  work underground than on the surface? The public would like to have  light on these pointis.  MINES AND MINING.  has a staff of  New Den-  PERSONAL   MENTION.  To Test the Eight-Hour Law.  E.J.  last  A. W. McCune and his son,  McCune, arrived from Salt Lake  evening, en route to the Payne mine at  Sandon. They are heavily interested  in the property. He is going north to  meet Clarence J. MoCuaig, promoter.of  the Payne company, to consult with  him concerning'.a proposed law suit to  test the validity of the eight-hour  labor law.   ^ ,;���������  Mr. McCiiaig was in Grand Forks a  few days since, and said, to' the correspondent of The Spokesman-Review :  "An eminent legal authority has advised the management of the Payne'  mine that the eight-hour law is unconstitutional. In all likelihood a test  case will be made in order to determine  the authority of the proyincial parliament to draft the legislation that has  caused so'much, trouble between labor  and capital. The measure ��������� was not  sought by the miners. -We��������������� contemplate starting up work ia the Payne,  paying ������3.50 for 10 hours' work. ��������� If we  are lined, the case will be appealed,  and, if need be, appealed to the privy  council."���������Spokesman-Review..     .  HALF A  MILLION   IN SIGHT.  The mine was lately examined by  Engineer Maxwell, who in his report  to the company estimates that the  mine has practically in sight $540,000  worth of ore, cstima^'d at a profit value  'if S10 per ton. ��������� ,i   , _  The American iioy is "owned b}* a  Spokane company, which his been  hammering away upon.it lor about  four years in the face of many discouragements. The mine is in a splendid  neighborhood, and is upon the Last  Chance, lead, below the latter property,  so that development open the vein  lOOOfeet deeper than in the LnstChance  workings. The principal difficulty  which n tarded development was litigation affecting title. The company  had to fight its way through all the  courts of the province twice' before a  crown grant was finally obtained, settling all dispute. Tlie tunnel ii 550  feet long, and its cost, as well as the  greater portion of all the development  of the mine, lias been largely paid out  of the proceeds of ore shipments. ���������  Recently a considerable quantity of  American Boy Btock was taken over by  J. G. McGuigan and associates, who  are also large interested in the Noble  Five mine, which lies adjacent to the  American Boy. Development upon  the mine is to be kept up steadily all  winter, and it is the hope of the'management to have the company in the  Slocan divelend Jist shortly after the  first,of the new year. Sufficient stopping backs have oeen opened to enable  the ^company to.send out ��������� shipments  steadily���������Spokesman-Review.   ..

Miss Moore arrived in thc city Tuesday, commencing hor duties at the  school on Wednesday, thc 1st.  Mrs. Fleming left yesterday morning  for Greenwood wliPre her husband has  been engaged in the transfer business  for some time.  Mr. Harry Nash, who has been a  long time with H. Byers it Co., took _ a  visit to __tbe west some time ago in  search of a business opening, and finding' none, he is likely to locate in Sandon on his own account.  Mr. J. R. Cameron, an old pioneer  in business as well as mining operations, pulled up stakes here on Wed-  day and with his needles and thread  left for thc Boundary country. We  wish him luck in his now field, which  will be Cascade City for a time.  Squire Lovatt, who has to the present taken but a little timo off for himself, intends to commence on a prolonged holiday shortly. He will first  go to the coast and thence to Eastern  Canada. Before his return he is likely  to visit England and the Paris exhibition. Mr. Nash will look after his affairs while he is absent. .  The Chicago property  four men ut work.

Purely  Social.  Have the Owners No Rights ?  Mr. and Mrs. Grimmett pleasantly  entertained a1 few friends at their residence Tuesday evening.  Mr. and Mrs. and Miss Vallance entertained a few of the young people of  the city Tuesday evening. The occasion  was a "Library party." each guest rep-  representing by emblem some book,  and a curious collection was presented,  which made a very interesting time in  the guessing contest. At the close  prizes were awarded forguessing the  'most books to Miss Hammond and C.  D. Hunter, while Mrs. Pitts and Sherry  Burchill.each won a booby; Refreshments and parlor games pleasantly  whiled away the remainder of the  evening.  As we go to press Friday evenings  we are unable, to give any more than  a passing notice of a social dance given  by the young people in the Virginia  hall last evening, but undoubtedly, as  on all such occasions, there was a jolly  time.

Under   Mr.   Warner's   managomen  the Madison is making rapid stridei  There are  at present 24 men at work,  12 underground at $3.50 for eight hours  and  12 on the suriace at SS 00 for 10  hours.   The workiug is all on the Argenta lead.   He ia now supervising an  addition to the buuk house for 16 more  men.     They have run a drift on  the  vein, called No. 5 level,  500 feet  and  will extend it 600 feet more.   In the  drift   they have   a 55-foot   ore chute  from 18 inches  to 5 feet of good concentrating ore.   They will sins: a winze  200 feet and  make an upraise   of 100  feet to connect 5 and 4 levels.   They  have under way,, an  ore house,   three  stories,   14x40, which will contain a  crusher   driven   by   water power,. for  which they are now putting iii a pipe.  The powerwill also'be used for supplying air in the tunnels.  When all contemplated improvements are finished  the Madison will have one of the best  equipments in the country.  Gu;sts- at the Reco.  Undesirable,  but Justifiable.  While the, general public   will not  take kindly to Italian miners, conceding  the ordinary elements of human  nature to the owners, it is only reasonable retaliation.   Through alien agitators a law is passed   conceding every  advantage to the miners for their votes.  The unions then in substance 6ay to  the owners, "We have many men that  know themselves they are not  worth  more than ������3,and that wc know are not  worth more;   but under the law you  have got either to give them ^3.50 for  eight hours or help yourselves."    With  the pistol   to. their heads  the owners  would not be human if they did  not  offer   reasonable   resentment.     They  made several efforts to meet the wishes  of the public and fill their mines with  white labor   and the  unions made as  many steps to prevent it.   The next is  recourse   to an  element   with whom  they (the unions),may not be so successful.  Nelson Tribune: "If the metallifer  ous mines of British Columbia are to  be filled up with Italians, then it is  time for Canadians to leave the leave  the province." ,  There is not a man in this district,  including the owners, that desires  Italians as a choice, but when a law is  forced on the owners that deprives  them of 20 per cent of what was conceded their right a few months ago, by  miners themselves, without the slightest concession from any quarter, and  which is endorsed by prints like the  Tribune, they would not7 be' human- it  they did not do something in self defense. Instead of making Canadians  leave let us make the government  leave, and the trouble can be removed  in a short time.  Three Important Questions.  The Nelson Tribune : "Pages of eight  hour laws might be passed, but unless  the laws contain penalty clauses they  weuld be ineffective." j  Will our neighbor be kind enough to  show the public how the mine owners  J.

The trouble can be got over in' this  way : Some Amcrcan or Canadian can  send them in, and when once in as residents the mine owners can hire them,  if they are so disposed.

Dr. Randolph Paries, recently prepared a paper on the massago treatment which is clear and practical  onough to leach the average layman  enough "about the subject to enable  him, after paying a little attention to  i few of tho principles upon which the  treaumeut is based, to get all tho benefits claimed for massago and save the  fee of an experienced trainor or mas-  'sour' at tlie same timo. In the opinion  of many medical authorities exercise and massage aro the two greatest  "ouralivo remedies that nature affords,  aiid the latter is considered "by many  as the coming treatment for all 'thoso  common functional troubles like .dyspepsia, constipation, jaundice, bilious-  'nsos, emanciation, nervo exhaustion,  etc., ami therefore a little time spent  on' this subj'ect is time well spent.  Bobbing may bo either local or general���������that is, it may be applied to an  arm, tho back, or the foot, or it jnay  be applied to the whole body. -Dr.  Paries mentions seven different kinds  of manipulation. "It may consist of  stroking the body with the palm of the  hand, slapping the body with the open  hand, beating it with tlie closed fist,  " striking it with the hand at right in-  " gles to the body, so that the edge cor-  ' responding to the side of the little linger comes into contact with it; kneading the skin, muscles and tendons;  grabbing tho skin and musoles and  squeeing thorn, and making combined  digital pressure over tho surface of the  body in different'regions."  The friction produced by rubbing  may be either rectilinear or circular.  Either one or. both hands may be used  to rub the body. If is customary ior  the right hand of the manipulator to  bo used for^.the right hand and foot,  - and tho left hand for the left hand  and foot of the patient, if the rubbing  be applied with one hand.  BOTH HANDS ARE USED '  for tho back, loins, abdomen and'chest.  The upward stroke in rubbing should  always bo more iutensethan the down-  Iwaifd, and the" st/rolie should extend  over the whole surface, from joint to  joint,  exercising   great    care  hot    ,to  - chafe the skin, i&lotre danger of this  arises,.in making the upward stroke  thaoi in making tho downward. .  ' Tho rubbing should not last so long  -that fatigue will'result: Ifurther", too  i rapid rubbing will frequently cause  pain by heating the skin too quickly,  causLnig the hairs of the body to stick  to the manipulator's hands, giving as  a final result a pulling of these hairs.  Rubbing should never be begun strenuously at the outset, but should be  started slowly and geutly, and gradually increased, so as to be adjusted to  the individual's feelings. Persons taking general exeroise should take a  rub after their bath. In this way they  will not only cause the blood to circu-  - late again through all parts of the  body, but will also prevent or overcome  any soreness or stiffuess that may be  present, and in addition to this, the  tissues, of tho body will constantly be  kept Ln a  better condition.  Xtl is a good rule to commence rubbing in the neighborhood ol the large  blood vessels, so as to influence the  circulation as soon as possible, and  thus, by sending the blood more quickly to the neighboring tributaries, influence them and the tissues surrounding them. The inner sides of the upper aud lower extremities are whore  tho large blood vessels will be found.  .Whcaii rubbing, if ono begins with the  ��������� lower extremities, the foot should be  'well rubbed, then the ankle joint, then  the leg, after that the knee joint, then  tha thigh, and  LASTLY, THH HIP JOINT.  The rubbing of the upper extremities  should begin with the hand, then tho  wrist joint should be cared for, after  that the forearm, next the elbow joint,  ' then the arm, and lastly the shoulder  joint.    The reason Cor this is to fnflu-  cehce tho points most remote from, the  heart and gradually work-low-ard the  ,,-heart.   The upper and lower extremi-  "ties may also be  rubbed;upward and  downward.  Y-;inTho cheat should bo rubbed from the  insertion  of  tho  largcv:ihusc!es .upon-  ^Itj.to their origin, while the abdominal  \ihuscles should, be-rubbed    from   .ihe  ���������   right' groin, as if is commonly 'called,'  ��������� rlii'the direction of tha t part oftthe".intestines   known     as    the     ascend irig-  \, transverse      and    descending    colons,  '.When rubbing  the abdomen  the. fingers of the manipulator should be kept-  -close    together.     'More pressure    and  ' less care are necessary in rubbing the  ;.back, because the skin and muscles are  .thicker and.more numerous in this region, and the musoles;areYnuch: larger  and stronger.   Here, us in  the abdomen,  the rubbing should be from the  'origin, to the insertion of the muscles.  In the upper part of the back.the ana-  , t'qmy of the muscles is so very, complicated-that it is difficult to understand  howl to do this'ualess one hasstudied  *'the ajnatomical   relation of the origin;  ���������Mid   insertion of these   muscles   very  .^thoroughly;    As  a, general'method  of  -rubbing-the back, it would be best, ia  ���������prdei* to have, all the muscles, in. this  region well" cared, f or, ;f irist: to 'rub up-':  ward and   downward, then crosswise,  -and Lastly obliquely upward and down1  -ward.

To gat up at 7 o'clock, or 8 o'clock:,  or any other fixed hour every morning,  no matter at what time you went to  bed tho night before is the most effectual way of maki.ng a bad workman of yourself. And as for saying that eight hours' sleep is what  suns everybody is as nonsensical a3  10 saj that one ounce of tobacco���������no  more, no less���������is the quantity, every  one ought to smoke In a day.  No doubt it is difficult for most people to sleep as long in the morning  as the body requires to repair - itself.

Stretched and  propped open, it measured ten feet  from jaw point to jaw point, and if  its throat nad beeu of proportionate  dimensions the notion that a fish  could not have swallowed Jonah would  have been exploded completely. A  team of horses wouldn't havo been too  large a mouthful for the Monterey  shark.r No one kuows what it  weighed, for there were no available  scales to weigh it 0iii,|but sixty tones,  or less than an ordinary locomotive,  was given as a conservative estimate.  l-r������.ided on a specially constructed  truck it would have taken a dozen  horses at least to haul it over an asphalt pavement, and more would have  been required to transport it over an  ordinary country road.  Tho basking shark is not hunted extensively, because it produces relatively little of commercial value. Nevertheless, the Portuguese fishermen who  captured tho o.ao at Monterey got three  barrels of oil from its liver and six  barrelfuls were tried out of the liver  of the basker captured on the New  England shore.

In Vancouver, the other night, Mr.;  Debs,  the.leader of organized labor on  Y' -the, continent, and who by the way is  a:very earnest and clever man, recom-  , mended 'socialism in its most absolute  ;form.   That wealth, and combines7 are  ; doing much , to depress the bulk-of. hu-  \. maiiity is a'fact'"'thn*t:n6'ohe can gaih-  ��������� say.;, but   that socialism is   a proper  .���������',' substitute, in the interest, o'f'humanity,  :.,     is a matter open to  the'gravest question.

Talk  to some  ��������� socialistic miners in the Slocan on the  ���������'"'��������� present: situation, and you   will7 be, at  ���������'���������: once told that-as the owner or the capitalist   lias .made his   money   out of  -the labor   of    otherr   that   they   or  Ytheirr,   successors   should   Tmve    the  fruits in profits.   It matters, not. that  "   generations have passed and gotie since  ,-���������  the creation of tlie wealth���������that may,  perhaps, have passed from parent  to  ,' child through generations te the present���������the laborer of today should have  .something like an equal share in what  -was   created   by  his ancestor genera--  v'.tioiis before. It appears tons that such  "argument   carried   into , action would  ���������destroy all the; incentives for industry  r and throw  the'world back   a number  of generations.7.,.CM������ed_ouL'HJwould  destroy the inventive-tendenoyTiti main,  , .destroy the sphere of talent and upturn  ; all. the principles of enterprise,   Jones  ..���������'.- is a genius, he has in. his mind, an in-'  "vention that will do much  to advance,  the world's progress, but he will refuse  to produce it' knowing that the wealth  ,tbat might' foi low. from its production','  instead of going to him and his, would  go to thoso -who live ; iii dependence  and indolence.  In;.his speech   at   Vancouver,   Mr,  Debs said if tbe people owned the railways  they could have a.  trans-continental ride tor one dollar;   but this is  not the case.   If the inventors of railways and trains knew that the public  were to have the benefits of their trains  without effort, there never would have  been either railways or trains  for any  one.   If Edison knew that the wealth  to follow from his inventions, was  to  go, not to linn and his, but to be'dis-'  tributed later among the masses, because  it accrued from the   results  of  ; labor; the world would never see the  inventions he is giving to it from day  to day.   If Columbus knew���������what actually transpired,- and even  during his  lifetime���������that none of the benefits  of  liis discoveries  were to go to  him  or  his, but to bo distributed among undeserving others, he would scarcely have  made his discoveries, and'the millions  of the western continent would now be  living on one another'in  the pent up  homes of the old world'.  Inventions and discoveries are all  designed to elevate and benefit the  -'human-family,'but'if the socialistic  idea of the distribution of tbe"vr*'eallh  at intervals wero to follow, tho'death-  knell would -be given to the progress  resultant from invention.  In his discourse,' Mr. Debs is said to  have grown  very eloquent in his de-  Sad to see people  advanced in years  sufleringfromBack-  aeiie, Lamo Back,  Urinary Troubles  and Kidney Weak-,  ness.

It appears, to us that  the first  stop towards the alleviation of' downtrodden labor, and to meet the ide;tl of  the, "organized labor . association, is  to  destroy the' demand for tlie cheap product.   When the producer knows .he  cannot: sell   the . products.' of  ground  labor,'.lie will, turn 0i.1t  his wares from  properly 'remunerated   labor. , As  we  said at': the outset organized labor has  many.spheres of- usefulnes, :as- organized capital hasj'but one of them cannot be the .universal distribution of socialism in. the sense .in.which.Mr. Debs  would have the publicaceept it.  THINGS AS THEY ARE.  We believe miners have just as good  a right to organize as any other class  of people���������farmers, capitalists,'manufacturers, etc.; but in their by-laws,  constitution and principles they are  just as liable to creep into errors and  make mistakes, damaging to others  through ill-consideration, as the capital  combines they are so anxious to de-  stray. We believe that as & class of  men thoy are as good as so many lawyers, farmers, clergymen or newspaper  writers, and no better ; and we say this  at the risk of bein"; called "an enemy  to organized labor." On general  grounds then they must-be judged as  any other class of the community are  judged, and their business methods  must bo measured by the rules and  principles that govern the methods of  other classes of tho people.  Sanrlon, for instance, is a small place,  and yet you will (ind in it clerks drawing from SI2 to 525 a week wages, tlie  disparity resting mainly on the ground  of capability or advancement in their  term of service. Nature, never created  any number of men alike, neither has  it made them equal in any earning  capacity. Where there is set work to  be done equal payment for it should be  made; but in mining operations this  is to a large extent out of the question,  the rock and other conditions vary so.  It is in this effort to establish one  great equality that the miners' nnions  make one serious mistake. Wo know  they will not agree with us in this.but  we cannot help it1���������the facts and substantiating circumstances are with us.  No one can blame them for employing  any legitimate-effort   to,, reduce   the  hours of labor for all, but the ground  for demanding equal payments  for all  cannot,    from   any   of   the   ordinary  usages   of  life,   he  reasonably established.    They say the scale of   wages  shall be 53.C0, .-53.50 or 54.00, as the case  may be, regardless altogether of   tho  capabilities of tho employee.   A capable foreman at a glance sees that in  tho one tunnel there are $3.00,   S3.50  and $-1.00 men, and if the scale is S3 50  he at once says Jones and Wilson are,  if they want to be it, 54.00 men, but aa  there   is   no   premium   for   anything  above mediocrit} , mediocrity they will  be.   He also says Smith and Brown'are  53.00 men,and he must discharge them.  If he puts competent non-union men  in their places, the chances are good  for a strike with all its consequences  to men,   owners  and   the whole community.     If a   strike   be fortunately  averted, these men (Smith and Brown)  are thrown out of the employment of  their choice, and what are they to "do  about it"?   Thoy might be capable  of  earning 52.50 or $3.00, and there might  be mines  that would employ them at  tliat, but  being union men   they cannot, take it.   How much more in the  way of assisting   their " fellow  beings  would   their   regulations' be   if  they  graded their men by capability.    It is  so   in  many    other association?,   and  several of the best practical miners in  tliis camp have told us that it is equally possible in mining,   Ii', for instance,  the union of this district could say to  tho owners tomorrow here are 200 5-1.00  men, 200 ������3.50 men and 200 53.00 men  wo are as confident as we can be  they  would all be engaged  and put. to work  within a week.    Such  an arrangement  would not- be imposing on the owner,  forcing   a   wrong   on   the   competent  miner, and would be doing no injustice  to his less favored fellow man.  Through the Slocan to-day, among  the business community, there is great  disappointment and many complaints  against the owners, such as "Why don't  l.hey open the mines?" Of course no  one has any right to tell another, who  is not indebted to him, that he should  work or that he should take such and  such wages, nor has he the right to aay  whether or not he should pay such and  such wages���������these aro all privileges  and liberties of the subject. At the  same time it appears to us that when  any class of the community take a  stand, that'properly constituted business usages do not support, it becomes  a matter in which the public have a  right to offer mediating suggestions.

'50c. .ind ?i.3o, ail druggists,  SCOTT ������t BOWNE, Chemists, Toronto,        _��������� I  The Nelson Tribune   goes   through  some comical contortions  of mind and  body   to sustain   its position   on the  eight-hour law.   It boldly asserts  that  because  thc output and profits of the  Payne aro large it should willingly pay  s?3 50 for   eight hours.   On the same  reasoning,   the  governor-general,   because of his large income, should pay  51.00 a pound for butter and 25 cents a  pound for sugar,   and   John Houston  should pay his men ������30 a  week  when  some small country papers are paying  515.   Is this sound reasoning ?   If not,  why not?   If   the income a wealthy  institution is to determiue the rate of  wages it shall pay, then that of a poor  institution is to determine its scale of  wages also.   Now let us see where this  will land  us in mining in the Slocan.  The pamphlet published by Mr. Cliffe,  that the Tribune quoted from so freely  in the case of the Payne the other day,  shows  that the Silver Nugget last year  shipped five tons of ore valued at   8400  while it employed 3 men.   Then  on  the Tribune's reasoning, after allowing  the management ' one-quarter of   the  amount, tho workman should take the  balance for the year's wages,   or fl00  apiece.   We ask Mr. Houston's candid  opinion  upon  this.   He  alleges   that  the Payne ought to pay S3.50  because  its profits   are large,   then  the other  mines should! pay also in proportion to  their incomes.    If this is  not right,  wages must  be  established on   some  other.basis than the incomes of prop-:  erties on which the men are employed  ���������such as supply,- demand,  nature of  the work, etc., etc.   The whole  thing  comes down  to  this, and the -Tribune,  and all  others oh the same line,  fight  as shy.pf it as a cat does of holy water.  When  the men  used to acknowledge  that $3.50 was 'fair wages for 10 hours,  what' ought  they to got for 8 hours?  If they cannot take what reason would  One of the reasons put forward by  the miners of the Slocan for making  an exception of this district in the demand for ?3.5o for the eight hours i3  that thej' formerly had it here for  ten, and all around thoy arc now asking  for the short day what they formerly  had for thc 'long clay. This is reasoning that would not stand long in  equity���������it means that because they  formerly had possession-of an article,  regardless of the ownership, they are  entitled to hold it for all time. To  most minds it will appear that if the  owners were formerl3r extra liberal  they should be entitled to especial  consideration under present circumstances.  Tho Vancouver Province, a itrong  supporter of the Semlin government,  copies some of our articles on the mining trouble here with much favorable  comment. The Review has long since  learned that in all such differences as  the present the truth lies somewhere  between the two extremes. The  trouble with some papers is that they  say the truth lies at the extreme end  of one extreme.  The British forces do not appear to  be making the headway with the Boers  mauy at the outset thought they would  make. It is one thing to be fighting  1 for life and another for dinner. The  Boers arc all handy with the gun, and,  though the British officers on many  occasions have shown excellent generalship, the Boers are more at homo  on the fields and are resolved on making it a case of desperation.  54  4f  ^  *"'  o*irf-  ������  e\  few N������������els At Cliife's Bookstore  ^  Paris, by Emilc Zola.

Nelson Miner : "It is creditably gotten up, typographically and editorially."  , The Nelson Tribune : "It is a nicely  printed pamphlet of 90 pages. It is  -what its name indicates. It is more.  It is a fair statement of thc conditions  that existed in May last."  The Kaslo Kootenaian : "0. Cliffe deserves cacdit' for his  souvenir publication.   There  is  a great deal   of useful  ���������information in it.   It appears to cover  the ground in an extensive way."  The'Silvertonian, Silverton: "This  publication is an excellent one and is  ���������the first one of this nature which is  confined exclusively to the Slocan.  ' The compiler of this pamphlet deserves  eredifc for his efforts to draw attention  .to thc resources of the Slocan."  Revelstoke Herald : "C. Cliffe, editor  of The Mining Review, Sandon, Las  compiled a very valuable and interesting handbook to tne mines of the Slocan under the title, "Tho Slocan District, B.C., its resources and opportunities for investment." The pamphlet  , is illustrated with views of Slocan  mines and mining towns, and is very  artistically gotten up,"  Vancouver Province: ''The Slocan  District is the subject of a well compiled and handsome pamphlet issued  by Mr. C. Cliffe, editor of the Sandon  Mining Review. An interesting review is given of tho mines working in  the Slocan proper, while the Nelson  and other districts are also touched  upon.   The illustrations aie good."  - The News-Advertiser; Vancouver:' "A  concise and carefully prepared little  brochure, yclept "The Slocan District  of British Columbia," has come to  hand and demands more than.passing  notice. It is~thc work of Mr. C. Chile,  tbe ' ditor of the "Mining Review" of  Sandon, whose acquaintance with the  mining possibilities of his district is as  extensive as the subjpct with which he  deals. Thc pamphlet does not pretend  to do moro than touch on tiie resources  and opportunities for investment to be  found in that silvery region, but in  doing so succeeds in giving, thc reader  a very clear idea of what capital and  labor, hand in hand, aro doing there.  The subject is further illuminated by  some excellent photographs of Sandon  City, the Slocan Star mill, the Payne  tramway and ore-house, Whitewater  and other places aud scenes."

Fifty  yfeari ago a young Scotch la'  was working as a "bobbin boy" in    a  cotioi'    factoiy.        lie    was    earning  somewhat   lebs   (ban  a dollar  .md    a  quaiter  a week.      That  bay  was Andrew Carnegie, who is now one of Lhe  iichest  men m the would.

Carnegie poudeiod  over  Ihe  problem  bow    besl   to  dislnbuLe  this huge sum during his lifetime, so  as to produce the maximum amount of  good and line minimum of evil  How to make millions, not how to  spend them, is the pies&ing pi obi em  with the majority of men. ( lhe man  who has made millions can best explain how millions aie made, and Mi.  Carnegie has kindly consented Lo I ell.  "If a man has an ambition Lo make  millions, Mr. Carnegie," he was asked, "what aie the gifts wiLh which a  fairy godmother should endow him at  Ins birth {"  " l'ho greatest of all advantages  witli which he can begin hie is lhat  of being t,oor. The man who wishes  to make millions must not bu born  with a silver sloou lu his mouth, lie  must feel tliat it is sink or swim  wit.li him. He must start his life  career witih uo bladders, no life preset vers, no suipporL. If in addition  to being poor Jaiinself he has wilness-  accuralely   estimated.   I  have always  found  that a manager ol one of our  great   woiks  has, been  able   Lo  make  excellent    managers    out of material  whi< h before his m.ugie touch was quite  mediocre.     He    inspires his  subordinates to almost super-human effort."  IDEAL CAP .TAIN OF INDUSTRY,  "lo summarize, the qualities w'hich  should distinguish the ideal captain ot  industry arc, fust, an intuuivo knowledge of hoiima'n nature; second, agen-  m,   for  oigani/zation,  and,   third,   tho  capacity of inspning his suboidinates."  "Yes, when jou' hive all these combined you have an extraordinary character.     Such a man can woik miracles  even if the mueiial  at  his command  is not  mu'h above the average.     Ihe  gieal   manager   who  will  succeed    in  mnk ng millions is not a spoil ili&L, excepting so far as il is his speiial function   to understand    the   human  math.ne      "boa may   find men  who will  become famous as specialists in many  branches o������ life, especially in piofes-  s ons      Greal tale   ts in one line will  iiLa'ie foi the lack of m.in.\ ofchci qu.'li-  tu>6.

A handsome statue of Flora Macdonald was unveiled tho other day, on  Castle Hill at Inverness. It is of  bronze, costing ������1000, and stands 9  feet high upon a pedestal of dressed  Scotch granite. " Tho pretty Highland  lass is lepresonted with head slightly  bent, the light hand raised shielding  the eyes. Over her simple dress is  thrown a tartan shawl, falling from  the right shoulder and caught in the  left hand. Tho simple drapery serves  to bring out the lines of her handsomo  figure. By hor side is her collie,  looking wistfully into her face,-evidently sympathizing with her in her  anxiety for Prince Charlie.  Flora ^Macdonald, the daughter of  the /'tacksman," or farmer, Ranald  Macdonald, was born in Milton, South  Uist, in 1722. Her grandfather was a  minister of the Island of Gigha, and  then of South Uist, both of which are  of the Hebiides group. Her father  died uivher infancy, and her mother  was taken from hor when she was only  G years old, having been abducted and  married by Hugh Macdonald, of Armadale, Skye, wno preferred to do his  wooing in this warlike way.  Iiittlc Flora remained at MilLon un-  til she was 13 years old, al which time  she was taken into the mansion of tho  Clanranalds, of whom her own family  were cadets, Ln order that she'might  have ihe advantage of their family  governess. She had a passion for  music, and became not only a splendid  performer on the spinnet, but delighted in singing Gaelic songs. But Lhe  simple life of the little girl of Soulh  Uist was at an end in 1731, when she  became the guest of Sir Alexander  Macdonald, in Monkstadt, in Skye, accompanying them afterward to Edin-  buigh, where she was sent to a boaid-  ing school, in the old sto,mp office,  closo to High street. Sho remained  there for four years, and al Lhe end  of her school days returned to Syke  with the family.  The next year was fought the disastrous battle of Culloden, and it Wl.s  then that Flora first met Lhe pieLcud-  er, Prince Chailes Edward, while on a  visit in Bembecula, an island of the  HeDrides. Her sympathies wore aroused ior the handsome, uuforLunale  young fellow, who had so little abiluy  Lo control his own destiny. Cape O-  Neil suggested to Flora Lhat she might  be able co help Lhe Prince oscape, if  she would furnish him with woman's  clothes in which to disguise hiuisell.  bho hesitaled at first, but her leeangs  oi inua������,bty weie soon overcome by liei  loyalty to this hapless bluail, aud  bhe conbonted. Sho aitenvaid said to  tne Duke or Aigyll that sho was only  a'nxious lor tne man, and would have  lent hei aid to any one in the same  tiouble. it is hard to believe, however, that her political sympathies  weie not with tbe pretendei. bhe  obtained a pasapuiL ior heiself, a man  servant, * uolly Buike, the opinuing  maid," and a crow ot si.i men, furnished by hei step-father, Hugh Macdonald, who probably knew that Betty  Buike waa none othei than the Punce.  It was 10 o'clock of a beauLilul Juno  morning when Lho paily set sailacioss  the Mmch, to Skye, and one can conceive what must have beeu the teehngs  of the young girl, upon whom the success ol the lia/aiaous undeitaking.de-  pended. \\ hen they attempted to  land near Wateinibh, they weie met  by a large party ol the Mcleo 1 militia  and when tbey again put out Lo sea a  &howei of bullets fell aiouud them,  lhey iwaily disembarked at Kilbraide,  neai BlonkstcdL.

November 6, 1750, sho married  Allen Macdonald, of Kingsburgh, and  they   resided  at  Flondgairy.  In 1773 she entertained. Dr. Johnson,  and in the August of the following  year emigrated with her husband and  family to North Carolina. Here she  lived happily for five or six years, but  when the war broko out her husband  was appointed ' Brigadier General by  the Governor, and at tho battle of  Morres Cieek was made prisoner. He  was conveyed to Halifax, Va., and by  tho advice of her husband and friends  Flora returned to Scotland. Her fortune seemed to have been to encounter  disasters of all sorts, for they had  scarcely sot sail until the ship was attacked by a French privateer, and the  heroic woman remained upon deck  during the encounter, her arm being  broken in the conflict. At tho close  of the war her husbands returned to  Scotland, and they lived quietly and  happily at Kingsbride until she died,  in 1700. She was wrapped in the  sheet upon which the Prince and Dr  Johnson had lain, and was buried in  the churchyard at Kilmuir.

Girls especially should be d's-  couiaged from nibbling at cakes and  sweetmeats or even fiuit, between  Limes If two meals only are taken  each day, a dish of fruiL at bedtime  will be in order, and veiy healthful.  With good digestion a person can accomplish almost anything in life, but  without it life becomes saaiy burdened,  it not a failure. Tho mother, who  has the caie of the houbehold, paiti-  cularly should have a sound stomach,  and this she cannot have if indulged in  ctiieiess eating while young. The simple law is lhat we should not over-  woik our internal oigans any moie  than our external. lhe stomach and  digestive tiact need rest quite as  much as the legs and arms.  Don't feed the.children too much  meal, if uny at all. Sweetmeats and  cakes are fai less injurious if taken  withoul over-ciowding the stomach. 1  have no hobby in this dueotion, but I  simply believe lhat our gnls and boys  will be healthier, ana better disposi-  tionod, if fed ou food that is not too  sLimulaling. Give them eggs, milk,  all sons of f 1 utts, and vegetables,  and let the supply of cereals be very  abundant. For my pari, h-have great  faith in a fruit diel. I uige a very  great increase 111 the consumption of  apples, bananas, dales and oranges,  and in then season the supply of currants nnd cheines should be as large  as tho children can possibly enjoy.  These iu id fruits constitute natuie's  proscription. I am astonished to find  thai the inaj'orily of families that live  in low ns and cities undertake lo get  along with perhaps a single bairel of  apples in a year. In my own family  of eight we uso six or seven bairels  each w inter, besides the summer supply.  Don't "runt" your children. By  this, I mean don't restrict their diet  lo foods that they 'do not like. Constitution illy ono cannot cat exactly what  another piefors. For this reason' the  table should show for every meal a  good^ variety. I have known" people  so economical that their childien must  eithei cat what thoy eat, and dunk,  01 nibble at a few odds and ends, and  half the time go hungry. This is the  worst possible economy m ..the household It woiks with children precisely  as it does wilh calves. If you mnt  them when small, you make pigmies  of them when giown I am afraid tho  effect does not stop with the body.  jiuarte.-������[=oLa_PUBfiil.^of oold ��������� water.,..

Here is a recipe that ^should bo out  out and pasted in ono coiner of the  kitchen, where it can be seen, for it  will save many dollars' worth of time  and strength Shave five cakes of good  hard soap just into enough boiling water to dissolve them nicely Stir constantly until the soap is dissolved, then  add two tablespoons of powdered borax,  and a scant teacup of kerosene Remove tho mixture from the stove before adding the kerosene Stir it well,  then pour it into a covered stone jar,  and uso it whenever anything dirty,  either cloth, tinware, woodwork, or  iron utensils, is to be cleaned. Apply  a little to the outside of your tea-kettle, while it is hot, using a flanno)  cloth for the purpose, and see how  quickly you can clean it, and how  blight it will be Use a little, also,  when cleaning your windows, and you  will never again legard that task as  something 'to be put off as long as  possible For pleaning sinks, washbasins, and slop-jais, there is nothing  that can equal it, and by Its use the  dish towels pan be kept nice and white  without iubbing. Put them into a  pan of cold water, add enough of tha  compound to foim a good suds, and let  them come slowly to a boil Let them  boil until they* are sufficiently clean,  then rinse them and hang them out.  Such work will almost do itself, whila  one is attending to other duties, and  the task of keeping clean is thus rob- ,  bed of more than one-half its terrors.
