Array <s(/^&/l'<ff  VOL. 5.���������NO. 21.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR,   o'  Town Jottings.  Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Creech, of Grand  Forks, are in tlie city visiting friends.  The merchants of this district are  commencing to skirmish- for holiday  trade, but it. is not likely to be very  extensive this season.  A grand concert will be given in the  Methodist chucli, in'aid of the church,  on Friday evening, tlie loth. Mrs.  Melville Parry, of Nelson, some the best  local talent have been engaged for the  program me.  What with dancing, recitations and  other amusements, to say nothing of  excellent refreshments, agoodlv number  of Orangemen and sympathisers celebrated Guio Fawke's day right loyally  in Crawford's hall on Tuesday  last.  Mr. Towgood, of the New York brew-  cry made a tour of Slocan Lake points  last week in the interest of his business.  He found on account of his partner, Mr.  Bruder, being well and favorably known  at all the pi.hits, he had no trouble in  increasing business.,  Peter McDonald was arrested at McGuigan the other day upon a bench  warrant. Police magistrate, of Erie,  fined McDonald for using some abusive  language in the B. C. hotel at Erie. He  was brought to Sandon, where he paid  the line and costs and was at once  set free.  When all did so well it would be invidious to single out any performer.  . But an exception must be inade in fhis,  as Mrs. Melville Parry certainly excelled  herself, possessing a voice of high range,  she used it to every advantage, and  judging by the vociferous encores, completely captivated her hearers.���������"-Winnipeg Tribune. - Y  Mr. F. A. Wood, 'formerly of the Last  Chance mine, but now of Florida, is in  the city renewing acquaintances. He.  has a fruit ranch down there that takes  , some of his tinie, but withal he has not  decided to make that section his permanent home. On this latter he has  not decided! He looks well himself and  reports  all   down  there as well,   and  ,  doing well.  An interesting case originating ��������� in  the Kootenay will he heard at the sittings of the full bench of the Supreme  court at Victoria. It is an appeal against  the decision of Mr. Justice Wai kern as  to the amount of succession duty payable by the estate of late Scott McDonald, of Spokane. Mr Justice Wai kern  placed the duty at $12,999, and exception  is taken to this by the trustees of the  estate.  ,The Rev. Ferguson left to-day on his  long visit to Eastern Canada.  Mr. E. A. Brown, M. E., went to  Spokane yesterday on business.  Mr. and Mrs. H. PI. Pitts arrived in  Ashnola this week, where they will' reside in future. Mr. Pitts has charge of  the townsite.  Mrs. Melville Parry's rendition of  "Edinboro Toon" brought tlie house  down, and gained aapontaneous encore.  ���������Toronto Mail and Empire. . .  I Little or no business was done at  Monday's council meeting. Tho police,  fire, and scavenger reports of last  month were sent in and discussed.  TheTC. of P.'s are expected to go down  to New Denver on Monday evening on a  fraternal visit to attend a big tupper  and a gathering of other local lodges.  The case of Marino vs. Sprbafc and  Mclnnis over the Marion mine has been  adjourned, it , will- come up again  for rehearing at the-Supreme court at  Victoria.  For Thanksgiving, day the C P. R.  will grant the usual fine and one-third  return rates to ami -from all; poin's in  local territory. Tickets*" will lie sold on  Nov. 26th, 27th and 28tli, good to return  Nov. 30th.  Mr. and Mrs. Heap left on the K. &  S. yesterday for California, where Mr.  Heap hopes to speedily regain his  health. He was improving here under  Dr. Power's treatment, but the weather  was against rapid progress. All hope  to hear 6f his speedy' recovery and 're-  tnrn .to his" old position -;at the Last  Chance. '     '���������   , ���������    Y   .'���������-.:. :-   ��������� ..'-'-  The Rev. Mr; Beer, Episcopalian of  Kaslo, was in the city Monday, on his  way to a tour of the Lardeau country,  His vJsit was, however, not without its  advantages, one of the latter being a  christening, with a couple of more  promised latter on. The one performed  was at the residence of Mr. Harry Nash,  when his daughter, Ellen Maud, became  a member ofthe Episcopal church. The  pponsers were: Mayor Lovatt, grandfather, and Mesdames Crawford and  Cliffe. A couple of hours spent most  pleasantly brought the proceedings to  a close.  Dan McDougall, brakeman on the C.  P. R. passenger train between here and  Naknsp, was nearly killed at Three  Forks last Saturday. While swinging  out from the platform of the car to  watch the wheels to see Chat they were  not "akidding," his head struck Against  the iron casting of the standpipe which  ��������� furnishes the water supply for the engines. He was thrown off the platform  and down th'p slope into Carpenter  creek below. His skull was fractured  and he was taken to the hospital in  Revelstoke for treatment. Although  badly hurt his injuries are not considered serious.  Now for the; holidays. We are now  receiving decidedh* the best assortment  ���������'of tovs," fancy goods, etc., for the holiday trade ever opened in" Sandon, and  all very cheap. We arelsel ling all goods  left over from last season at cost, afid  the new goods are marked very low.  We know times are hard* and money m  scarce, so the idea is to make1 the dollar  go as far as possible; and it will go" farther in our store than . at any place in  the Kootenay country in the toy and  fancy goods line. Please bear this, in  mind parents and others who have to  buy, Cliffe's bookstoie is this year the  headquarters in the Slocan for holiday  presents. YY  Some interested partieH.tell the miners the Review is opposed to ; the eight  hour law, fair wages to the men and  hand in glove with the. mine owners..  The Review is simply opposed to any  and all.conditions, after paying reasonable wages to the men, thatprevent the  mines from working and. paying honest  interest to men who have lent the money  in good faith to open and develop the  country. After fair interest is paid to  these people, and running expenses are  cleared, the Review would favor $3.50 a  day to miners for eight hours. We hope  this position is clear enough. It is unfair to give either miners or money  lenders all there is in a mine after government demands are met, and force  the other parties to go without anything.  There is a rumor around the district  to the effect that tlie English company  owning the Monitor mine at Three  Forks, were likely to take over the franchises of the proposed Kaslo smelter  and build and operate it. Mr. Gintz-  burger has made such a success of the  Monitor that his company are said to  have unlimited confidence in the country. There is at present, according to  our best information, about a quarter of  of a million dollars worth of ore in sight  at the Monitor, and it has been a steady  and profitable shipper all summer.  There i? no doubt in the world of the  success of a smelter in the Slocan well  managed, and if Mr. Gintzburger succeeds in inducing his company to take  hold of the Kaslo project, they have a  paying investment ahead. "  ,  Silver Glauee Smelter Returns.  A trial shipment of five and one-half  tons of diy ore recently shipped from  the Silver Glance group at Bear Lake to  Trail smelter netted the owners $1,230,  or nearly $200 to the ton. .The returns  went upwards of 400 ounces in silver  and $3 in' gold to the ton. Part of the  shipment consisting of four sacks went  4168 ounces of silver per ton and in 129  other sacks ran 310 ounces in silver to  tho ton. Picked^ specimens assayed  14,330 ounces of silver and $6 in gold to  the ton.  The ore is a black sulphuret aud is  round in a.paystreak avering 18 inches  jn width, the lead being traced from  the surface by open cuts and it has been  proved for over 400 feet with a depth of  48 feet. A tunnel has been driven for  50 feet,and with 40 feet more work will  tap the lead at an 80-foot depth. ��������� .D.  McPhail, who has charge of the property, intends to continue development  work all winter and commence regular,  shipments in the spring. This property  is owned by McPhail Brothers, E.  Erickson and" Dr. Rodgers, all of Kaslo,  and Dr. Arthur of Nelson. Some nine  assessments have been done on the  property, but not meeting with anv  successes until lately. D. McPhail  opened the property up again nearly a  month ago, and after three days' work  uncovered pay ore in the workings.  Later on bunkhousesand cabins will be  put up.  Mr. McPhail has been a successful  mining operator, opening up the Whitewater Deep, the Bannockbnrn group on  Duncan river, the Gashiei near Sandon,  and the Silver Glance, at Bear Lake.  In Tunnel and Stope,  For October the Monitor shipped 2S}������  tons of ore.   ,  ship-  Struck High Grade Ore;   "  .It is reported that a rich  strike was  located   in   the  lower   tunnel   of   the  Washington mine in McGuigan  basin.  The find is said to be a rich one of high  grade galena, and proves to be a larger  body than another strike made nearly  two months ago.   It is notyet known  what is the extent of the discover}'. This  property has not been shipping  to any  extent in the past two months.   The  loose ore found in tha tunnels was taken  and sent to the smelter, and the ore  bodies stoped.   Derelopment   work   is  carried on by a good staff of men.   The  leads were traced and exploration work  done a short time ago, so as to have the  outside   work    completed  before    the  winter set in, and open up and work on j  any networkings, if they were projected.    Most of the work is being done in  the upper workings, and just as the men  were going  to  abandon   the   crosscut  they were on in the lower tunnel,  they  encountered the strike.   In this tunnel  years ago considerable money was epent  by the owners,  not meeting with any  success, dropped all work.   Most of the  work under way is in the upper levels,  audit is likely  that the lower tunnel  will also be a place of activity.     J. L.  Retallack took charge of the property  last summer,   securing  a   lease.   It is  likely that congiderable shipping will  be done-this winter.  The Whitewater for last month  ped 765 tons of ore.  ,   The Silver Belle in Best basin will  likely be started up.  The Silver Glance at Bear Lake shipped 10 tons for October.  They are hammering away at the long  tunnel in'the Last Chance and hope to  strike the lead at any  moment.   They  are almost certain to tap it today,or to-,  morrow.  Mr. Warner says there is not a doubt  about   his  having a true ledge in the  Wonderful.   He is working   five   men*  and shipping regularly,   much being a  200-ounce ore,-  A. D. McGillivray.has a deal on for  the Neepawa on Ten Mile with W. H.  Sandiford. It is supposed the deal  was closed here yesterday, but up to the  hour of going' to press, we have not  heard any further particulars.  Contracts have been awarded for ex-'  tensive improvements at tlie Iron Horse,  Ten Mile. D. McCuaig will erect the  bunkhouse. D, J. McNally will erect  the shafthouse, and Chas. McNicholl  will have the building of the road to ���������  connect the mine with the Enterprise  road.  A. H. Blumenaeur visited the Young .  Bear group, a dry ore property, near the  Bondholder, and"expressed his opinion  it is- one! of the best properties in that  section. One assay from the rock went  680 dunces in silver, while the average  value of eight feet across was given at  124 ounces. This property is owned by  E. A Cameron and7 associates of this  city, they have a deal on with W. H.  Sandiford.   ' ���������������������������������������������'  The first meeting of the Rockland  Copper Company was held at Grand  Forks, November 7tb, for the purpose  of organization. This company was-  recently incorporated with a capital of  $2,000,000. W. G, Graves, of Spokane,  was elected president, and G. W. Woos-  ter, of Grand Forks, secretary-treasurer,  and the other directors are A. L. White,  Judge W. W.Spinks and J.'P. Graves.  The firstannual meeting will be held  on November 28th. ThiB company was  organized for the purpose of taking over  the Rockland group at Silverton. It is  a rich' gold-copper proposition. Extensive development work will be resumed next spring, and it is expected  that the company will ultimately own '���������  it own smelter. The group was acquired from Frank Watson, of Spokane,  and W. Ward Spinks, of Vernon, B. C.  Mr. G. 0. Buchanan, of Kaslo, was in  the city Saturday, having been liberated  but a lew days before from his quarantine at Bonner's Ferry. He says that  when he was passing through the place  some three or four weeks before, there  were evidences on eveiy hand smallpox  was everywhere in the place. The barber who was shaving all in the place  who got shaved, was covered with the  unmistakable yellow eruptions. For  the safety of people this way Mr. Buchanan refused to come any further until  the matter was fully investigated. The  town doctors insisted that the ailment  was not smallpox, but the county officers declared it was and had the place  quarantined. It was fortunate the  disease was of but a mild type, and as a  consequence no fatalities have taken  place; but all the same the history of it  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tons.  Slocan Star 148  Sunset  30  American Boy  22  Reco  22  Last Chance..!  20  Total,  242  Cheap Holiday Rates.

Was   it   water  at  consciousness ' bottom of this pit, or should  woman     from ', dashed to-pieces on some huge  I had just bidden my wife    good-'  right���������my little Spanish wife���������and   I  had heard      her footsteps  retreating  up    thc stairs     of what-    she called  "our     strange English     home."     1  had won her in Spaini and had wed-|  ded her against  her father's wishes, j  In  fact,   she      had   eloped   with   me.  and  we had      hastened  to  where I led hei* to the altar.  She was very beautiful even for  a Spanish scnorita, and had broken  many a don's heart before I won her  real nflection and brought her to my  little estate in England. She had  all tho hot, impulsive nature of her  country, and the romance of tho  "runaway match" suited her. and  for a year wo had been perfectly  happy.  She loved me with on ardour and  passion seldom or never met with  in an English wife, and I reciprocated the feeling in a real if not so  demonstrative a manner. If there  was a little cloud1 to mar the glorious sunshine of our lives it was  thc dread she had of a Spaniard by  the' name of Don Carlos, who had  been the accepted suitor for her  hand. He was rich, and had been  promised her hand by her father, and  it was thc continual pressure that  he brought upon hei to marry him���������  whom she hated������������������that had induced  her to fly with me.  Sometimes she would teli me of  liini, her frame shaking with fear,  and her dark eyes flashing with  hate, and what he would do when  he learned of her marriage. "He will  go mad,''' sho said, ' 'and search all  over the world for you."  1 assured her that Lho English law  would protect me, and that she need  have no fear .on my account, but  every now and then the fear wbuld  return, and she would pray me to be  always on my guard. She described  his features to me, and told me, in  her impulsive Spanish manner, if  j^vcr I met him to shoot him at  once! "Kill him," she would say,  setting her little white teeth, "before he has a chance to kill you."  After a year had-gone by I    began ^  to hear less of Don Carlos, and hoped that 1 should soon hear of     him  ; a fate worse than death.   I told him i dors������������������   or impaled    upon some  'that Antonctta haled the mention of j spikes ?   1     had u*ead of'    all  his name.  | Whilst he was still covering me  with his revolvers he made a motion  to a confederate. A man came' forward, and before 1 could clearly dis  corn his intention struck me a violent blow on thc head, and 1 remembered uo more.  #������#*���������*'  When I came to myself and collect-  England, 'ed my thoughts .[-found myself lying  the   "  {stories of thc  Inquisition,   and  dered which was .to be my fate.  With thc idea of ascertaining  ; were    water  1. took     off  my  I watch (I should not require it againl  hole  no more. But I did-not'then fully  understand the true nature of a disappointed and baulked Spaniard ;  I did not know with what tenacity-  he pursues the object of his hate and  the bloodthirsty manner in which  he delights to take his revenge. As  it was, I never thought of him save  when my wife ��������� mentioned his name,  and never dreamed that 1 should  ever see him, much less under the  terrible circumstances that are here  related.  0n; the night that I referred to at  first I heard my wife close the door.  Then I lit a cigar and was soon* lost  again in thc novel I was reading.' I  should think that I had been sitting  thus for about half an hour whoii  suddenly the French windows which  looked on to a little lawn in front  of thc house opened, and I saw a  man standing in front of mo with  a revolver in each  hand.  I recognized him at once : tho high  cheek-bones, the black, glittering  eyes, and the dark waxed moustaches told me at once that this  was the man whom my wife dreaded  -the Spaniard,  Dun  Carlos.  1 saw him I read murder in  Without him telling  that if I moved he  me so  would  you  are a  once,  Sho  so much  Directly  his eyes.

'  "Listen," said he, "nnd if  move so much ns an inch you  dead man. 1 loved a maiden  the prettiest, maiden in Spain  did not then love me, but she would  have done so. Her father had given  her to me, and she was looked upon  as my future wife by everyone who  knew us. Then ah Englishman come  and stole her, won her by his lying  tongue, took he:* away with him and  married her. When 1 learnt of it I  took an oath l.o find and murder  him, kill him as he had my hopes. J.  have found him. You are the man  and I intend to have my revenge."  I was cool     at the commencement  of this discourse ;  but as he     went'  on, and I pictured my little Anton- t  on tne floor of a good-sizeci room.  How long 1 had been unconscious or  in what part of the world I was I  could not say, but I could sec at a  glance that I was not in' a room in  my, own house. I- was not bound  either hand or foot, and after a few  moments I sat up and looked around  me. The room was about 14 feet  square and the walls appeared to be  made of some hard black wood,  ebony I think, and were quite smooth  and unpapercd.  ��������� In vain I looked around for a door  but there was not even a crease apparent in those smooth, black walls.  For a timo J sat, thus and collected  my scattered thoughts : my head  was throbbing and my pulse beating  at a runaway speed.  The iirst thing that my thoughts  flew to was my little Antonctta.  Had they molested her ? Was she  ���������also to suffer for having married  me ? Poor little- girl, how she  would worry at my absence ; and  the thought, ever uppermost in her  mind, that .f should get into the  hands of Don Carlos, was fulfilled at  last. But what was the end to be ?  1 was evidently not to be starved to  death, for by my side was a plate  of bread and meat and some water  in a glass.  Then I remembered the horrors of  the Inquisition. Was I to be tortured to death ?' Thc room was not .  dark, and 1 looked round to sec  from whence the light proceeded, and  discovered that it came from several  edits in thc ceiling about 2 feet in  length and a couple of inches wide.     <  I then rose to my feet and looked  round the room for some loophole  of escape, but I might as well have  tried to escape from a jewel safe.  Then I felt drowsiness creeping over  me again, and I Jay down and slept.  It was a troubled, broken sleep, interrupted by rudo dreams and alarms  ��������� When I awoke I thought, that the  room seemed darker, and I imagined  that night was coming on. It was  not by any means dark, but the  light certainly seemed Jess than when  I had gone to sleep. I lay In a kind  of semi-stupor, for somp time, my  mind first wandering to my wife and  then ��������� to my mother and my old  home.  After a time ,I felt cramped  rose to a sitting posture, and,  ing round, I thought that the  appeared smaller than "when;.I  first looked     round it,;      the  walls   (,appeared    to be closer,  glancing up at the slits in the  ing,  I-saw that they were not  long ; they were partly covered  the walls.  Then 1 noticed with awful horror  that not only were the walls closing  in upon me, bifl in the centre of the  room was an opening like a small  well, which seemed to be getting  larger as tlie room was decreasing  in size. In a flash thc awful truth  was upon mo : the wa'ls would close  in towards thc hole and I should be  gradually forced, inch by inch to an  a.wful death, down into that  known  depth.  When I discovered this I was like  a madman ; I cursed and prayed in  the same breath and rushed round  the room shrieking and tearing at  the ebony walls, and finally fell to  tho floor exhausted, and  a few feet of that yawning  hole.  Then I crawled on my hand and  knees towards it and looked down,  but saw nothing but inky darkness.  I discovored that the hole was now  nearly as large as it would get. Two  of the centre slabs of the stone floor  had been made to recede, leaving a  yawning abyss about 6 feet in diameter, and these slabs had now. receded their limit, but the walls were  still moving slowly, very slowly towards the centre pit. ;  and dropped it down the black  and listened. It seemed some seconds before I heard it crash on to  some hard substance below. It was  not water���������1 had prayed that it  might have been.  After I had dropped my watch I  noticed that the inside of tne hole  was bricked with ordinary red  bricks, but so closely built that to  get a foothold would be impossible;  my ca.se seemed absolutely hopeless.  Then thoughts of my wife came over  me. I pictured her weeping and  searching foi me in vain. Heavens !  was there no means of escape from  these pitiless, closing walls V  Then a strange thought suggested  itself to me, only to be put aside  as impossible, but a drowning man  clutches at a si raw, and I determined to try it. It was to remove with  my penknife the mortar of four  bricks--two in which to put my  feet and two for my hands ; and to  .wait thus clinging to the inside of  the well until the walls had again  retreated.  Then'Don .Carlos, thinking T was  dead at tho bottom of the hole,  might relax his vigilance, and I  might perchance escape. It was a  wild hope and desperate in tlie extreme, but it was better than dying  without making an olTort to save my  life. The room was- now only about  10 feet square, and Iliad, 1 reckoned, about four hours to do my work,  which would give me. if I were successful in removing the bricks, about  ' fifteen minutes to rest myself beforo  getting into the black hole.  , I lay down flat and 'commenced in  a wild frenzy at a brick as far down  as I could reach. The mortar was  terribly hard, but bit by "bit I chip-,  ed it out until in less than an hour  ,1 had removed the first brick, and  away it went crashing down to the  bottom of the hole. Then'I commenced on another about a foot to  thc right ofthe one I had already  removed. Oh ! tho torture of working in that posture. The blood  rushed to my head and the veins  stood out on.my forehead like whipcord. But I thought of Antonetta.  and home, and I went at it. with the  frenzy ,of despair  now almost dark,  ceiling had almost, disappeared ; but  I managed     to remove     the second  ���������The  room, was  The slits in the  brick just as   the  last glimmer  light disappeared,  and how I  left in total darkness.-.  The horror     of my situation   .  and ���������'now greatly  increased.   I  could  look-  see now  nearing  by   in a couple of yards of the pit, so I  the   concluded that they would recede to  I   be   that limit before the hole began ���������  to  boul-   close.    This did not take so  Jong to  iron   think as to write,  and before i had  these   properly' reasoned   it  out  I   felt  the  won-,hard wall touching my back.   Still I  Idid not get into the pit, as I knew I  if it   should  require  all      my  strengtn  to  gold   hold on until I could climb out when  the walls had again receded.  j    At  last the moment  arrived  when  I ������������������sou Id  no   longer  sit  on the   small  and     ever-decreasing      ledge,      and  tremblingly I got into the mouth of  the pit, hanging on to the top until  ! I got my feet into the holes I    had  "made for them.  I am not'a coward,.-but I confess  that I was frightened���������terribly  frightened���������as I- was feeling about  with my feet for those holes. For  some minutes T kept my hands on*  the edge of the. pit, but soon ��������� the  cold, pitiless walls ^touched my hot  finger-tips, and I had to loose my  hold and clutch the back of the  bricks from which I had removed  the others. I had scraped out somo  of thc mortar behind the bricks under the two I had removed, so that  this afforded a hold.  ! Then commenced that terrible  struggle of endurance, the horrors of  which almost ' drove me mad. It  could not have been many minutes  before the walls began to recede,,  but to mo it seemed hours. Every  few .seconds I would put up ono of  my hands to feel the walls. They  came, to the extreme edge of the pit  and seemed to stay there for some  time  j At last, when I put up my, hand I  could not feel the wall?, and 1 knew  that they were really receding. They  iweul back much more rapidly than  they had closed in, so much so, in  fact, that in a few minutes the light  was again streaming in through the  slits in the ceiling. I. had just cot*  my hands on the ledge to lift mvse.lf  from my perilous position when I  became suddenly aware of a great-  flood of light coming in from a space  like a,,dooi  in. one of the .walls.  Thinking that someone was entering, J. hastily got back into my former position so as to be free from  observation. Then I heard footsteps on the stone floor, but could  see nothing, . as the person had entered thc side of the room corresponding to the side of the pit to  which I was clinging.  Then I heard a loud burst of laughter, which! at     once recognized as  jproreeding 'from  that  villain,      Don  I Carlos.   Then  lie murmured to himself in Spanish     something that     I  could  not     understand,  but* I knew  that he was gloating over my    supposed  fate.  Presently he stepped to the edge of  was   the pit, and I knew that I should be  discovered, but rather than undergo-  fresh tortures,  I determined to     re-  jlease my hold     and  drop down the  s  of  was  not  room  had  black  ,  and,  ceil-  so  by  how quickly the walls were j well.     Then    like a    lightning flash  tho centre,      so  I  worked   came  another    thought,   and  almost  away at the other two bricks like a  madman, for 1 thought that every  moment I should feel the wall behind mo pushing me to my awful  doom. Oh, the awful horror of that  terrible fight against time in the  darkness ! I had long been unable  to do my work lying down, for the  ebony walls only left a space of  about two feet all round thc inky  hole.  I had worn away almost the entire  blade of my knife, and still there remained a brick to be removed. Nearer- and nearer came the walls, and I  now hud only a foot of'space in  which to sit and finish my work,  un-,: and tho brick seemed to bo in as  tight as ever, the perspiration running off my fevered brow and dropping on  tho stone floor.  At last tho brick was loosened,  and a moment . later went ciushing  down      thc well.   I  paused   to  wipe  lay  within | my wot face and rest a few minutes.  ing black j Then an awful thought flashed upon  me. When the walls receded would  not the stone slabs again cover the  well and my only chance of escape  be cut off ..-? It was reasonable to  suppose so, for the same machinery  that was driving the walls towards  the centre was most likely responsible for the opening of the pit's  mouth.  I was in despair and abandoned all  hope,-and made up my mind -to end  it all, by springing into the yawning  hole.   Then again I remembered that  I resigned myself as calmly as     I j tho  slabs     had   reached   their   limit  could l,o my awful fate^ What    was / before the w.aJ!s .had xeo-ttUed to with-  as quick I acted on it. He had just  reached the mouth of the pit, ' and  'before he had time to discover me,  I loosed one hand, and with a  strength born of madness I clutched  one of his legs.  To my dying day I shall remember the cry he gave as he wont  crashing down to the awful.doom Iw  had proparod for me. Then with a  feeling of horror at what I had done  I got out of the ebony room and out  of the bouse of horrors unmolested.  I found myself in Spain, as I. had  partly supposed, and I lost no time  in getting, back to  England.  I found my wife terribly upset at  my prolonged absence. She had  quite given 'up all hope of ever seeing mo again, but when I told her  of the fate of Don Carlos a glad  light came into hor eyes.

A well known doctor of Minneapolis, who has made a specialty of  nervous diseases, has found a new  remedy for ..."the blues." .* As no  drugs . are administered, he has felt  safe in experimenting with at least a  half hundred melancholy patients,  and now declares himself thoroughly  satisfied with the good results of his  treatment. His prescription reads  something like this: "Jf you keep the |  corners of your mouth turned up you '  can't feel blue." The directions for  taking are, "Smile, keep on smiling,  don't stop smiling." It sounds ridiculous, doesn'tit? Well, just try  turning up the corners of your  mouth, regardless of your mood, and  see how it makes you feel; then  draw the corners of your mouth  down and note the effect, and you  will1 be willing to declare "there's  something in it."  The doctor treats his nervous patients to medicine when necessary,  but when the case is one of purely  melancholy without .'bodily ill, he  simply recommends the smile cure.  He has the patient remain in his office and smile; if it isn't the genuine  article, it must at least be an upward curvature of the corners of the  mouth, and the better feelings follow  inevitably. The treatments are followed up regularly, and thc-patients  a.11 testify to their \good effect. It  takes considerable persuasion to induce some of them to apply the.cure,  and, of course, the greater number of  patients are women, for when a man  is blue he is bound to be blue in  spite of everything,-but a woman is  more easily persuaded to try to lind  a cure.  Thc doctor declares that if persons  will only draw down the corners'of  their mouths and use sufficient will  power they can actually shed tears.  On.the other hand, if they will persistently keep thc comers of the  mouth turned up pleasant thoughts  will chase away the gloomy forebodings. His discovery grew out of  an experience in his own home. His  wife was of a nervous and rather  morbid temperament, and when in a  despondent mood he would ask her  to "smile a little," until the saying  came to be a household joke. But it  brought ab nit good results, and  then came the inspiration to try the  ���������.same cure on others.  The doctor has not patented his  remedv, und it is free to all who  choose to take advantage of it.  GRATEFUL-COMFORTING.  BREAKFAST-SUPPER.  THOUGHTFUL.'.

HOUSTON AND ORE SHIPMENTS.  It takes but a very little to elate some  people  when   they  have  purposes lo  serve,   Because the shipments  of ore  for October from the Slocan have been  good the Nelson-Tribune jumps to the  conclusion the mining  business   of the  district is booming, and us a consequence  all the mining laws of the country must  be satisfactory.   This is a long round  about way to justify Houston's votes  and those of his friends in  the House,  on milling legislation;   but then  "any  port in a storm,"   There are reasons of  a purely local character for these shipments, that as a  matter of fact prove  nothing after all, much less what Houston wants them to prove.   If that wiseacre will only compare the total shipments lor the year so far with those of  1S97, he will see the mining business of  the district   is   not  what it was four  years ago, when with the money spent  on development and  improvements in  the interval, it should be as mining goes  in other countries more than double.  The country then is going backwards,  instead of towards as ifc should with its  natural resources but for the laws passed in the interval  through  blundering  stupidy, and anxiety to  corral  votes.  The shipments of the Slocan should be  from 75,000. to 100,000 tons this year,  and they would be that if our legislators  did their   duty,   and   were   governed  by honest motives.   .������������������  : In some issues of his paper,  Houston  is clamoring for more  representation in  the House from  tlie   Kootenay;     but  what the country really wants is effectual  deliverance from some ofthe representa-  ti ves it already has.   What is to be hoped  foratany time, from representatives that  will barter off the country's advancement and progress for the votes of men  who have not a dollar's worth of interest  in the country?   Nothing, and yet this  is   the   boat  Houston   sailed   in.     In  Hume's bye-el eel ion in Nelson riding a  private arrangement was made with the  miners if  they would support Hume,  they would get the eight-hour law.   The  influence of such a measure was never  once considered.   Houston knew of the  barter and sale,  and winked at it,  if he  did   not  privately  endorse  it.   ,  The  proposition worked ; the law was passed ;  Hume was elected,   and the country received a blow from which  in  the next  ten years it will not have fully recovered.  Every business man knows this; Houston himself knows it; many of tlie more  honest miners   know  it,   and   do uofc  hesitate to say so.    Unprincipled prints  of. the Tribune, stamp, however, never  tire of adopting subterfuges, such as a  reference to last   month's  shipmenta  from the Slocan, to cover up the wreckage.   Thero is no   disputing  the fact  that labor is fully entitled to the benefit  of all commendable efforts to better its  position  by shortening its   hours and  advancing its pay; but both  must be  done in a way that will not effectually  stifle   the  very thing that it has   to  depend on.   If  this   thing  had   been  made gradual,'if instead of an eight-hour  day, a nine-hour one had been given,  with a promise of further reduction in  five years after, and without increased  taxation and other annoyances, the end  desired would be achieved  without impeding operations.   Under such modifications of the law the men in-good time  would have been treated well, and their  NOW IS THE TIME  Seasons change. We can't  change them.

This would not,  however, please our tin-pot politicians,  who arc now whistling to keep their  courage up, as a last resort.  Allhough a change of management all  around is taking place at the Le Roi  mine, there is as yet nothing lo indicate  that the chief demand of the. ^Miners'  union���������an increase of 50 cents a day to  the muckers���������will be conceded. Advances in expenses iii new undeveloped  properties is a serious 'matter; but to  the ordinary observer there is no valid  reason, however, why $3.00 should not  be paid by the Le Rdi', a gold mine  which does notfluctuate likeasilver-lead  property.

The misery of marriage  often results from  ailments which  maidenly modesty kept hidden.  When doctors are  at last consulted  they frequently  fail to help.  They do not understand the root  of the trouble.  Dr, Pierce's Favorite Prescription has cured  in thousands of  cases where doctors entirely  failed.

Reading between   the lines, however,  there  are other reasons Avhy the demands of the, union are not complied  with.   The  drift of matters the world  over goes  to  show   that    the * more  concessions that are-made to (he unions,  the more they want.   The <:ase of the  steel works in the States is one in point.  Gradually the men had been making  demands and gradually the owners were  yielding to them, until finally it looked,  as one .writer'puts ifc,   as if the men  wanted to turn  the owners out doors,  aud run  the ��������� works   themselves���������they  virtually insisted on making all mills  union and throw all the non-union men  out no matter how faithful they had been  to their employers or how well   they  were pleased with, (heir position?.    It  is t'ese encroachments of labor, without what tlie average man  would consider corresponding   benefits,    though  with serious annoyances to capital that  are one of the chief reasons for the large  money trusts that are being formed the  world over, to secure strength to combat,  what  they  consider' the  unnecessary  encroachments of labor.   Labor is justi-  able in securing proper wages,   proper  hours of work,  and absolute safety   to  life and limb in  manufactories, mines,  &c.; but interference with the acknowledged rights of employers will ever and  always be the cause of trouble.

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, November 9, 1901.  Up-to-Date Dividends.  LEGISLA-  ATTEN-.  GENTLEMEN    OF  THE  TUBE   AND   OTHERS,  ,   ,., TION,  PLEASE.  Continued from Page 4.  realized for the investors .$8,000,000, or  exactly two per cent, all around.    This  is the second matter to which we desire  to call the attention oi tlie. gentlemen  of our legis-laiure and the press of this  country.   It is surely an honest  question  to ask.   Is this a fair  return to  c   those who sank  their  mon<jy  in this  country?   Some, will  say   this   is ;the  money of capitalists in England, who  are satisfied with a low rate of interest.  Some of if is the  money of capitalists,  but much of it is the hard earned cash  ' j of our friends and relatives in the eastern provinces, who can land at home all  the money   they   can get  hold , of on  absolutely safesecurityut six and seven  per cent., and the capitalistsof England  have no trouble lending to the  banks  and governments of the world at three  and  four  per cent.   Then  why should  we ask them to. be compelled to take  t.wo per cent, in this country  in such a  hazardous enterprise as mining?  No one denies thattheeight-hour law  has to soinw extent at least diminished  the profits of tbe paying mines, and cut  oft'the near approach of profits   from  many that are so  far non-paying; the  two per cent, tax has contributed drawbacks on the same lines, and so  on of  our high   registration   fees   and   other  impediments of which the mine owners  complain.    It  may  be .that no one of  these   impediments is in itself unsiir-  mountable,   but   combined   they have  succeeded in limiting the profits on our  provincial investments to two per cent.!  We believe that in the minerals this  , country   is  very  wealthy.    We believe  that    had    advancement     not    been  knocked on the head  two years ago by  the eight-hour law, aiid kept down ever  since by..the succeeding obstructing acts  mining would have been so  far  prosecuted in  the country during  the past  two years, tliat by the increased outputs  -���������of present paying mines and the tonage  of   new   ones,   the    dividends    to-dav  would  total  $16,000,000, showing four  per cent; instead of two to those of our  friends in the east  who have  tried; to  help us iii this province.   Now,  gentlemen of the legislature, do you'think, as  honest men, the few votes you got in the  last elections and the few more you may  get in the next election, area full recompense   to   the country  for .the consequences?' ', Had   those acts   not: been  passed our province would have literally  boomed during the last two  years; our  population  would have'''doubled':   our  business would   have quadrupled; our  trusting friends  would have four   per  cent, instead of two for their moneys'and  no one except a dozen or more defeated  candidates would have been disappointed, as no one asked  for Yhe  legislation  that has caused all this trouble.  Mining is hazzardous, the work of the  miner ifl hard, and he is entitled to  every consideration. Wo fully believe  that with the country once upon its feet,  our mines deyeloped and paying, our  agricultural resources opened up,  manufacturing of every description well  established, as a repnlt of mining on a  sound basis, the miner could get his  eight-hour day, better wages than  he is now getting, and olenty of work  at fair wages in tho interval. With  this condition of things five or six per  cent, dividends all around would go  to the men who have lent us their  money in good faith and looked in  turn for hon?st treatment!

Not     Es-  Prince  known  cierrv  The French  continue to  tight  mimic battle, as'if tnere had  The correspondent of tlie London  Daily Chronicle who attended the  FYench military manoeuvres at Ke-  tbcJ says that the French leaders  have shown a decided talent for  handling large masses of troops���������  when out of sight of the enemy���������and  on the energy of these troops they  have made claims which, however,  ��������� willingly responded to by tliem,  would have caused considerable  grumbling in tho ranks of British  battalions in time of peace, at  least, if. not in war..' French manoeuvres are conducted in a manner entirely di(Veil-ent from those of Alcler-  shoti or Salisbury Plain. There the  men have their barracks or their  camp, where they have almost cwery  comfort, and return to their quarters  after a few hours' easy fighting.  French soldiers, on the other hand,  after a hard day's marching and  fighting, which often begins as early  as M a.m., and generally ends about'  noon, or even later, have to march  long and  TIRESOME DISTANCES  before reaching the respective villages where they arc to be billeted  for the night. The bilh-ting arrangements appear to bo perfect. The  mayor of the village or canton gets  notice that so many men will want  .sleeping accommodation on a particular night, and he must tie ready  with it to the minute. Tliere ib no  -doubt about it, tho French army possesses in a high degree thc virture of  mobility and adaptability, ana it is  very difficult to put one'a linger anywhere on the weak point of its organization and equipment.  General Iirugerc's organization  could scarcely be better, out hero  eulogy,--from-the. English point of  view cannot well go further. For  the tactics of the Ftench army are  still little more than the '.tactics of  thirty years ago, to go no further  back,  their  never been such a thing, as a Boer  war ; and they frankly admit that  they have never given it their serious . attention from the point of  view of comparative'militarism. In  fact, they deny that its lessons have  any practical', value" for them  ever. The French army is still as  gaudy in color���������still as conspicuous  a target���������as it was the last7 time it  went under the fire of. Europe.  DO NOT TAKE COVER.  .' On Sunday and Monday, at the  battles around.Rethel, ha.d there  been bullets in'the guns oF the enemy scarcely one of the cheering  stormers would have been left upright. The men are not taught . to  take cover, except in accidental dips  of the ground, and they advance  across the open in the most leisurely  and even dignified fashion, exposed  to infantry and artillery fire. I have  not seen a single .rush forward and j friends,'  a. flop down as they do it at Alder- [ Alfiod '  shot. It was no unusual sight to see  companies ' blazing away at, each  other/separated sometimes by less  than 200 yards. The whole field was  marked by ineptitudes of this kind,  which astonished men who had been  in South Africa. How the Boers  would like to have the French for  an enemy !  As for tho infantry fire, delivered  mostly as independent, not volley  firing, there was scarcely one maw in  ten who troubled.himself to take aim  but each one simply blitzed away as  ii* he wanted to get tlie show over as  soon as possible, nnd none of the  officers seemed to care a bit about  this sham light negligence, which  might become a fatal habit in real  war. There was also seen the curious spectacle of one company taking  another prisoner. On the whole, all  these tactics were intensely surprising. .'It may be doubted whether the  French arrrfy is not still weakest  where-it ought to be strongest.   f   3,607 vessels passed through thc  Suez Canal in 1899. Of these 2,660  were merchant ships, 736 mail  steamers, and  the rest warships, or  lately by  are     in-  I havo been much struck  how very much nicknames  creating in every "rank of life, from  the very highest downward, writes a  correspondent. Thc fact is that few  popular people escape ihem. The  King himself among -his own particular set is generally alluded to as  thc "Mastcir," the Duke o.f Cambridge on account of his connection  with the-royal parks is known as  "George, , the Ranger," wfiiie the  Princess Charles of Denmark is always called  "ll;,rry"  by the family.  The Duke of At'hol has been duubod  "AH Scotland." The. Duke of .Marlborough's nickname is "Sonny,"' tho  Duke of Portland's "Jumbo." The  Duke of Manchester is known cvorv-  "Kim," the Duke of    New-  where as  castle as "Linnie,"  which is an   abbreviation  of his  second .title,  Lurd  Lincoln.   The  late  Duke  of Wellington was known as "Spurgeon," probably     on account     of his immense  t>ize.   Prince     Soltykolf,    the     well-  known      raping  man,      is  generally  known  at  Newmarket     as   "Solly."  Victor     Dhuleep      Singh is  as      "Tulip."   Lord  London-  will  probably be known     always as "C," a nickname given him  when he was Lord Castlereath. Lord  Cholmondeley,  the  hereditary  GREAT   CHAMBERLAIN  of England,  is familiarly known   as  "Ro,"k,"  this,   too,   because of     his  second title of Rocksavage.  Lord Coventry is known as "Covey," his nephew, Lord Lurgan, as  "Billy," Lord Cowley is known as  "Toby," Lord Spencer, as "Red  Earl" on account of his tawny  beard, Lord Warwick is affectionately called "Brookie," Lord Yarmouth the "Bloater," a name his  father, Lord Hertford, earned when  he was in the Foot Guards. Major  Lawson. and Captain Greville Chester of the Scots Guards are known  as "Bubble" and "Squeak," that  well-known sportsman, Captain Ma-  chell,- us "II Capitano ;" Schomberg  M'cDbnell, brother of Lord Antrim,  the well-known private secretary of  Lord Salisbury, rejoices in the hick- '  .name of "Pom;" Colonel Byron, for-i  what-jmerly . aide-de-camp to Lord Roberts, is known as the "Strong Man;"  George Faber, an exceedingly good  looking man, is known as "Beautiful  George;" Cecil Rhodes is aptly named "Colossus;" Henry Stpnor, one of.  the King's gentlemen in waiting, is  so good looking that he Ys known ns  "The Apollo;'-' Captain .Seymour.'  Fortescue, another of thc King's  equerries, is styled "Commodore." j  LORD KITCHENER j  is briefly alluded to as "K. of K'..''���������  Captain Milligan, a brother of the  great cricketer, is called "Canary,"  because he is so fair ; T-Iuhiphrey I  among his most intimate  is called "11 umpty Dmnpty" j  Rothschild will always Le  as "Mr. A.;" Lord JUichan.  who is small and a very well dressed  dandy, is known as "P. A.," or  "Pocket Adonis;" Colonel Ncedhain,  brother of Lord Kilinore, is "Dot;"  Mrs. Langtry's husband, Hugo de  Bathe, is "Suggje;" Lord Charles  Montague, son 'of thc Duchess of  Devonshire, for some reason or  other is calleid "The Snake:" Cyril  Maude is known as "Spirrcl," Cha9  Wyndham is "The Landlord," but  the number of these is legion.  The ladies, too. receive nicknames,  for instance, Lady Wimborne is called "Dciiisitina," on account of her  low church tendencies. Lady FJo  Stuart as "Pauverina;" her great  friend, Mrs. Hawfa Williams, "Florence," or "Florenza," Mrs. George  Keppel has several nicknames, perhaps the best known being-"ICeppla-  ria." Lady Howe received the name  of "The Joker," Miss Bulkely, who  is such a great favorite with everybody is called '"lhe Two-Year-GUI.*"  I Lady De Grey and Lady Cosford are  known    as  "The Sentinels."  to the British consul at  Azerbaijan, in Turkey, it is a most  interesting sight at that' town to  sec the carpet looms at work..Eight  or nine boys,, whose ages range irom  8 to 12, sit in serried rows at the  ' looms, and armed with the wool,  which they pull from reels suspended above them in- their left hands,  and a flat knife, crooked at the point  in their right, dash, with threei movements, tho thread through the web-  strings, hook ;t into the desired knot  and cut off the surplus ends, smarting another knot before the spectator  has realized  what has  been done.''  Having been shown the design and  coloring of the carpet they aro ��������� to  work, for the first two or three feet  these boys rely on their memories  for tlie remainder of their last*, for  on only two or throe looms is the  design of the carpet to be seen  affixed, and then only its plain penciled drawing. When merely complicated parts or medallions, a boy  aged from 12 to 14, .the foreman of  the loom, who has the design seemingly imprinted in his mind, walks  up and down, calling out in a quaint  sing-song manner the number nf  stitches and the colors of the thread  , to be used.  A copy of the famous carpet from  tho Mosque of Ardabil, which is now  at the South ' Kensington museum,  is being made by one firm. The design,- ilowering and coloring of tho  original are said to be unique, and  here, although the troys were working without the design, and at ihe  rate of from thirty to thirty-five"  stitches a minute, a careful comparison of the hand-painted copy of the  original showed the most minute at- ,  tention in every detail. |  Nothing but hand-work is employed in the manufacture, of Persian  carpets and rugs, and none but natural or vegetable dyes are used, and  it is to this latter fact that Persian  carpets and rugs are supposed to  owe their reputations and lasting  colors although it is said that the  secret of the beautiful dark blue dye  used in the older days has been lost  Tho dyes in general use in Persia are  cochineal,, madder root, indigo-yellow, berries, yellow-root, walnut! and  pome-graiiatc husks and gallniit.

"No," said the wag, "that's not  the way; you've lost the bet."  "Well," said the doctor with some  petulance of manner, "how does he  spell it?"  "Why, he spells it c-a-t," replied  the wag with tho utmost gravity,  amid tho roars of the mess; and almost choking with rage, the doctor  sprang to liis feet, exclaiming:  "Gentlemen.

G.reat was the dismay at Copenhagen on the receipt of this message,  for the accommodation in the house  had     never     allowed Princess Alexandra such a luxury as a room     to ,  herself '!'.'���������' -...-, j  The genial and unassuming nature  of the aged King is well known. Despite his venerable age, he may be  seen on. most fine days walking unattended, save by a huge boar  hound, through the streets of his,  capital, making little purchases at1  the shops and chatting iii. a most  unaffected way with people he may  meet, and these arc often persons  of  ..VERY'HUMBLE STATION.  One morning he entered into conversation with an old courtier,  whom he eventually invited to partake of refreshments. The two ; adjourned to a near-by restaurant .;  but when the time came to pay, the  King found that he had r.o money,  and had to borrow the necessary  wherewithal from a friend who opportunely     entered the restaurant.  His Majesty was greatly attached  to the late Queen Louise. One morning during her illness it was remarked that His Majesty looked fatigued.  He admitted that he was. It appeared that the King had been in to  inquire how the Queen was. ; Her  Majesty complained that sho could  not sleep', and asked thc King, to  allow her to rest against his arm.  In this way she at last fell into a  deep sleep, aiid for fear of awakening  her lhe King remained in this tiring position for several hours.  Another morning the King espied a  number of men congregated on the  esplanade. They were laborers on  strike for a reduction 'of hours and  an increase of wages. On his 'approach the malcontents -recognized  His Majesty, and their spokesman  explained tho situation to him. The  King was not entirely sympathetic.  He argued the various points of thc  dispute with thein for over an hour,  pointing out that the manufacturers  of Copenhagen were not so prosperous as the workmen appeared to imagine, and that to grant thc strikers' demands would mean the dealing of a serious blow to the industries of Denmark. The mm wero  not convinced, but they expressed  their thanks for the advice���������which  thev did not intend to adopt���������tendered them by His Majesty in such a  kindly  and well-meaning way.  King Christian is more than popular with his people. They are devoted to him. Thi*-' is all thc moro  remarkable when it is remembered  that Denmark is probably the most  socialistic country in Europe.  COMRADES.  Touching   Story of Two  Officers.  English  A touching story of two friends is  told by William Beatty-Kingston iu  his "Journalist's Jottings." They  were two 'officers, in thc English .-army  who quarreled about, some trifle, and  although they had been the closest  of comrades, became, in consequence,  entirely estranged. The fact of their  separation was extremely bitter to  both of them, and one Christinas  day one of them, received from the  other a card bearing a dove with, an  olive-branch.  The recipient kept the message by  him for a twelvemonth, and on tlio  following Christmas sent it back to  his fellow officer, who in turn laid it,  aside for a year, and then despatched it on the next anniversary.,  Through three successive decades  at each' Christmas-tide, the mil to  messenger was regularly sent in  token of continued friendship, until a  year came when it.was forgotten because the present possessor ��������� was too  harassed by financial losses to remember it. In the course of. the  Christmas week, however, his wife  came upon the card, aud sent it off  to her husband's friend with a newspaper cutting referring to her husband's bankruptcy. The r?turning  post brought her a letter., enclosing  a thousand pounds, and explaining  that tho sender had just conic into, a  fortune, and that in return ror this  trifling sum, intended for his  friend's rescue, he should keep  Christmas card as his most  cious possession..  old  the  pre-  Japanese  Catarrh Cure  NOT OMLYGiVHS RELIEF, BUT  PERMANENTLY CURES CATARRH  TWO  W������EK'S TRtAlMcNT FREE.

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, November 9, 1901.  Mining in McGuigan Basin.  1 Most of the mines and a large number  of promising prospects in the basin are  working, development being the chief  aim of the owners. The shipments  aggregate an average of seven tons a day,  and would be greatly increased if the  market for silver and lead afforded better  ' prices, however, mining is going ahead  as-.well as can.beexpected. Sortie of the  mines are just paying a little more than  expenses on, account of the silver and  lead problem arid other-local conditions.  There are about 150 menvemployed in  the camp, none of the mines have large  staffs except the Rambler.    ���������  The  Washington    is   still    working  steadily on the old and new workings.  Some time ago prospecting and  tracing  unworked leads was done, so' as to   be  able to work on  the additional ground  all winter and have the. workings commenced before   the   snow  flies.   The  Washington vein has been traced down  the hill from the  old workings on the  surface to No.. 3 tunnel, showing the  vein to cut 20 feet east of where a new  tunnel was started.      y  Work is being keep up on the Soho  ' group, on which a crosscut is being run  200 feet  below  the present workings.  This.mine has the. Payne and Rambler  leads, and in most 61' the tunnels there  are showings of ore.   No. 2 tunnel has  been erosscuted  from the   surface   for  250 to 300 feet ou-this tunnel,   which vis  800 feef in  length,  and  it is expected  the "crosscut will catch the lead.   No. 3"  level oil the south side of the hill is con-  nectdd with No. 2; by  a .winze.  -The  crosscutting under   way will open the  vein some two feet below this level, and  when completed it will be the centre of  activity. ���������.-"���������'  The Rambler is a steady shipper, and  is working with a large staff of men.  Stoping will .be commenced at once so  as to lay out a good supply of ore for the  new concentrator.  The Dardanelles is being developed  with a crew of nine men. Tlie dry ore  is _ being taken out of the mine and  shipped and the galena sloped. ';���������  The Surprise is running a long tunnel  to catch the lead upon which the recent  strike was made. This tunnel will be  parallel with the old workings, and  both tunnels will be erosscuted on the  h-'dges.  The Antoine resumed operations a  short time ago, putting about nine men  to work. Two weeks ago a shipment  was made, the first for over a year and  a half.  The Sunset in Jackson basin has a  small payroll and occasional shipments  oome down from the mine.
