Dr. Byrne, mayor of Spokane, has  been spending the week in the city &  guest of Dr. Goinm.  Mr, F. J. Fihucane was in town the  past ��������� week, and wont up with Mr.  Hughes to the Sunset.  A large quantity of this year's rasp-  erries preserved for sale cheap. Apply at Cliffe's bookstore.'  Although the time changes on the C.  P. R. tomorrow, there will be no change j  on the Sandon branch.  Mr. Thos. Jalland leayes next week  for the Okanagan valley to buy a car  each of vegetables and apples for the  winter's trade.  A large eagle winged by John Carlton  is now attracting the attention of a  great many townspeople in front of the  Kootenay hotel.  Mr. de R. Rose is down from the St.  Keverine mine having finished up his  contract work on which he had been engaged all summer.  Chas. Walinaley has purchased the  Bodega saloon in NelBon. His brother  William ie to run it while ho holds  down the Kootenay here.  The American Express Co. are face to  face with a man and woman who are diligently raising $1.00 orders to $10, and  passing them freely throughout the coun  try. The man is light and the woman  ���������dark, but the act of both rather shady.  - An ore car on the C. P. R. line blanching to the Payne ore house broke loose  Wednesday and raced down to the  switch at which point in jumped the  track. It was the cause of Wednesday's  passenger train being delayed which did  not arrive until the following morning.  Rev. Purdy, late Presbyterian minister here, but now stationed at Phoenix,  is confined to the Grand Forks hospital  with an affection of the heart.  Allan Stubbs at one time a resident of  this city, but recently a brakeman on  the C.'P. R. Boundary branch, had the  misfortune to have two of his fingers  taken off a few days ago while coupling  cars.  There has been quite an exodus of  Sandonites to the Spokane Fair thepast  week. Among those who have' taken in  the show-are Mr. arid Mrs. Pratt Mr.  and Mrs. M.L. Grimmett, Mrs.Dr.Hen-  dryx and J. M. Harris.  ��������� What might have proved a sad acci-  dentoccurred Monday near Whitewater.  While A. D. Wheeler and family were  driving down from the Whitewater mine  to the town, the horses took fright and  precipitated the occupants Borne fifty  feet down the steep hill side.  Although Mrs. Wheeler received several  bad bruises it is anticipated her injuries  will not prove to be of a serious nature.  Mr. A. C. Garde, managerof the Payne  mine, along with a friend passed through  a thrilling experience Wednesday and  one which might have resultedserious-  ly if they both had not displayed great  presence of mind. They were proceeding at a rapid rate to the Payne office on  the "speeder" along the K. and 8. track,  and just as they were rounding one of  numerous curves they espied theK. and  S. passenger only a few yards ahead  aproaching them from the opposite  direction. Mr. Garde and friend had  just barely time to jump before both the  I train and the speeder collided.^ The  latter was demolished beyond repair.  FATAL ACCIDENT..  David Kier, a Miner at the  Sloean  Star, Loses His Life.  David Kier, at the Sloean .Star  was accidentally killed at the mine  Thursday evening by a drop of earth  and rock from the face of a drift in No.  5 tunnel in which he was at work at the  time. Those who witnessed the accident are. surpris ed that death should  have followed from the fall of so small  a quantity of debris. Many say they  knew of men escaping comparatively  unhurt from even larger bodies than  that which fell on Kier. No blame is  attached to any one.  The deceased had worked around here  for over four years, but it is not known  that he had any relatives in these parts.  He came from NovaScotia. His remains  will be taken charge of by the Miners'  Union.  The miners had been cautioned by  the company to test the ground each  shift. Those on the previous shift in  this drift had done so, and found everything safe, as indeed it should be.as the  timbering was as well up as it could be������  That excellent precaution is taken at  this mine is evidenced by the fact this  is the firBt fatality in its history.

Payne Co. Bones Property.  A. O. Garde, manager of the Payne  mine, has taken an option on the  LindBay group and Knob Hill group of  mineral claims on Canyon creek, in the  Trout Lake district. A force of men  will be immediately put to work and  shipments will most likely commenceat  an early date. The bonds call for payments of $30,000 and $15,000 respectively  The properties were owned by P. A.  Lindgren and Gus Erick������3n.  John Dean and 8. S. Sorenson of  RosBland are spending the week in the  city looking over the properties of the  camp. Mr. Dean Is largely interested in  Peoria group situated in the Dardanelle  basinand Mr. Sorenson until reeently  was connected with the Velvet mines,  Rossland. Their visit is purely  one of pleasure and not in any way  speculative.-  These gentlemen were greatly surprised at the numberof properties working considering the low price of silver  and lead and thought when the prevail-  Jng conditions under which our properties were laboring were improved this  would become one of the busiest camps  in the country.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon for the week:  Mine. Tons.  American Boy  21  Payne... 100  Ruth....... .'.  84  Sunset 21  Ivanhoe...... 20  Wonderful...  15  Total. ���������.   261  The Letter "E."  Some editor with time to burn lias  found out the following of the letter  "e". The fifth letter on the alphabet,  "e" is the most unfortunate letter in  the English alphabet, because it is  never in cash and always in debt and  never out of danger. We must not forget though that the aforesaid letter is  never in war but always in peace. It is  the beginning of existence, the commencement of ease and the end of  trouble. Without it there is no meat,  no bread, no heaven.���������Rossland Miner.  And what would be infinitely better  for the Miner man without that "e"  there would ba no hell, eo he would  have to spend eternity either in purga-  1 tory or Halifax.  The Silver Glance, Bear Lake, ship-'  ped 43 tons this week.  In the next two weeks the Hewett  will increase the staff to 40 men.  It is reported that the Hartney at  New Denver will be opened up again.  From McGuigan the R. E. Lee sent  out 44 tons for the week; Antoine, 44.  From the shipment of 62 tons of ore  last week the Silver Glance at Bear  Lake netted the owners a profit of about  $12,000.  Ore to the value of $50,000 was shipped from the Lardo last month. In all  350 tons. The principal shippers were  the Nettie L., Silver Cup and Triune.  The Wakefield at Silverton has let  out its entire force this week. Contracts  will be let for development during the  winter months. This property will not  ship until spring.  The Noble Five people are preparing  their quarters for the winter and have  twelve men on the payroll. On the  Deadman, one of the group, six inches  of highgrade ore have just been exposed.  The Sloean Star Company are reorganizing their company and are moving the Spokane offie to Canada. We  nope to have some news of4importance  to give out next week as to future  operations.  The smelter returns from the trial  shipment of ore sent out by the Mercury  about three weeks ago have just been  received, but for reasons best known to  the ownem the exact amount will not be  made public. It is known the shipment  netted them handsome returns and will  justify them in more vigorously developing the property. Three men are now  engaged in running in a crosscut tunnel  further down the hill to get greater  depth.  Hotel Reco Arrivals.

THE MINING SITUATION.  Some of our confreres are trying to  make a point against the mine owners  because they are not all agreed as one  as to what would be best to relieve  the depressed condition of the mining  industry in the province. This should  be an evidence of the strength of their  position���������a proof there are more causes  .than one in operation. Go into any of  the churches or any of the political parties or societies and you will find many  opinions. Then why not a diversity on  the raining situation when the reasons  for it are numerous?  Here are some of the causes advanced:  The low prices of Bilver and lead.  The  heavy  freight  and   treatment  charges.  MIRROR, SCALES, ETC.  There was a man. And his  mirror said " sallow skin."  And the scales said "losing  weight." And his friends did  wag their heads as he passed  by. But being a prudent man  he.forthwith swallowed daily  certain pleasant doses of Scott's  Emulsion.  Then his mirror said "ruddy  face." And the scales sunk  beneath his weight. And his  friends looked upon him. with  amaze.  (Note ���������This is no fable���������but is true  history),  d you ������ little to try, if you lik������.  Toronta  We'll send you a. little to try, if you lik������.  SCOTT   &   BOWNE,      Chemists,    .  has    been    fearless    and    frank���������its  utterances   being    at all    times  the  The heavy duties on mining  machin- result   of   honest    conviction.      We  ery.  The heavy duties and consequent increased cost of powder and candles.  The high prices of provisions for the  boarding houses.  The increased cost of labor through  the eight-hour law.  The two per cent, tax and other provincial government charges.  As all the mines do not turn out the  same in operation these charges on  operations affect mineB differently which  is one great cause of the diversity of  opinion.  ��������� For instance, freight and treatment  and the two per cent, tax bear more  heavily on the low grade ores than they  do on the high grades, and as a result  the owners of these classes of mines  speak more of the greatest hindrances  to their operations. The mines that  have mills are more affected by the  duties on machinery, and so on throughout the list.  Of course if prices were good but little  would be heard of any of the other obstacles mentoinedabove.astbeproperties  could meet them all and pay dividends;  but when prices are low, as they have  been for some time past, and the owners  are powerless to improve, the removal  of any or all ofthe obstacles enumerated  would correspondingly increase the  earnings of mines.  This is the whole thing in anut-shell,  and it appears to us the man who wants  to see should be able to see it in this  way. The removal of any of the enumerated hindrances would afford relief,  and it becomes the duty of any all who  are able to render all the assistance in  their power and should readily do it  instead of wondering at the diversity of  opinions among the parties raising complaints.  have at times run counter to the  views of many; but we did it not with  the intention of either courting notoriety  or making money, but for the sole purpose of telling what we believed then  and still believe to be the truth. Our  principal friction has been with the  labor element; and now that we can  look calmly back on the past, we have  simply to say we did our duty, and we  know that a great many  of  that  class  must come to the same conclusion.  This country is one of the greatest  natural resources,but they,can never be  turned to account without,the employment of a vaBt amount of foreign capital���������a capital that has been, and will be  for many years to come, sought after by  many other countries as well as British  Columbia. Likeanimportantindustry,  the country and the peoyle that offer  the greatest inducement get it. Nothing but the assurance that it can be  safely invested, with reaeonablechances  for legitimate profits, will ever induce  the holders to sink it here. On this  point, mechanics, laborers and holders  of prospects, properties, and claims,  who are waiting for means to turn their  holdings to account should be perfectly  clear. It can never be brought in by  clamoring* of labor agitators who desire  to keep strife alive that their occupations may be continuous, or by speeches  and legislation of politicians who appeal  to labor prejudices that they may win  votes therebv.  FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS.  9t  ' V.) SITUATION.  During  its  publication   this   paper  There exists often a very beautiful  companionship between the mother and  her daughter. The intimacy is frank,  free and sympathetic. But some day  the mother feels as if something had  chilled this intimacy. The child is  silent and sad, and seems to shun her  mother instead of  oeeking her.   .  This change very  often occurs when  the young girl is  crossing the border line of womanhood. She is morbid, nervous, fearful, as she enters^  upon this new experience.  The use of  Dr.  Pierce's    Favorite  Prescription at  such a time will  do more than restore the normal  balance of mind  and body. It will  establish the womanly function upon  ��������� basis of sound  health, as well a9  improve the appe- _  tite, nourish the nerves, and promote  the general physical health.  "Two years ago my daughter's health began  to fail," writes Mrs. Dan Hall, of Brodhead.  Green Co Wis. "Everything: that could be  thought of was done to help her but It was of no  use. When she began to complain she was  quite stout: weighed 170���������������������������the picture of good  health, until about the age of fourteen; then in  eix months she was so run down her weight was  but 120. I felt I could not giva her up as she  was the ouly child X had, and I must say, Doc-  tor, that only for your ' Favorite Prescription'  iny daughter would have been in her grave today, when she had taken one-half bottle the  natural function was established and we bought  another one, making only two bottles in all, and  she completely recovered. Since then she is as  well as can be."  The Common Sense Medical Adviser,  1008 pages, in paper covers, is sent free  on receipt of 31 one-cent stamps to pay  expense of customs and mailing only.  Addrees Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.  It appears to us our city council will  be no sooner out of one "delimma" until they will be ^involved in another.  The law says that any mayor or alderman who is absent from meetings for  three months forfeits his seat. As Mr.  Jalland was absent three months on  Tuesday last, he is not eligible to attend  meeting now if he was brought back.  Again as it will be three months since  the mayor and Aids. Cameron and  Brown attended meetings, ifthegovern-  ment's elections are not held shortly  the seats of the three we have  named will become vacant, and the two  members elected under the government's writ being without a quorum  will be unable legally to transact business. It looks now as if the city was to  have a succession of "delimmas'.' until  the end comes. In the meantime, however, the city team remains in the stable  in idleness, the clerk andchiefaredraw-  ing large salaries doing nothing except  the valuable help they are rendering  the place, abusing the editor of this  paper for pointing out the mistakes of  their employers.  Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been used  by millions of mothers for their children when  teething.

There is considerable activity in the  McGuigan and Surprise basins at present. At the Rambler-Cariboo there is  a force of 70 men employed, and this  will be increased to over 100 as soon as  the alterations in tho plant now being  made are completed. A new'engineand  boiler room is being erected and machinery will be placed in these to operate  machine drills, of which only one is  working and to run the mill. Two new  Wilfley tables have been installed'in  the mill, and these will be started to  work within a couple of weeks, materially increasing its capacity.  On the Antoine there are eight men  working, and shipments of ore are being  sent out in development work. The ore  at present has to be packed to McGuigan  station, but in the course of another  month it ie expected that rawhiding  can be commenced. The property is  ooking in good shape,  On the Red Fox, adjoining- the Antoine, 15 men are employed, under the  superintendence of G. Aylard. The  work is mainly in developing, although  shipments are made from time to time  of the ore taken out of the drift.  On the Surprise, next above the Red  Pox, there is a force of eight men.  These are all working on contract.  Chapman brothers have eight men  on the ,R. L. Lee, which they have  leased. Some very nice looking ore is  at present being takjn from the tunnel  which they are driving.  On the   Washington  a  contract was  ���������let for the  400 feet long, intended   to  I tap the  lead.   There  has   been   some  I trouble  at   this   property   at  theem-  jploymenfc of a Chinese cook.  On tho Dardanelles 6even men are  Jworking, -and it will probably be a  (steady shipper this winter.

Brown,  generally known  as  'Barbarian" Brown died   in  Phoenix,  jirizona, Saturday last, where he had  oeen spending the past few months in a  :ain effort to regain his health,  No mining man in   recent years  has  assed through so varied a career as he  id.   He first started a newspaper in  iVallace, Idaho, in its boom days.    The  aper he called the   "Barbarian" from  hich he derived his  name,   and  one  i.it clung to him ever afterwards.   Not  ��������� ���������cting with any great amount of suc-  -s in his newspaper venture he went  ��������� South Africa and passed through the  imisbn raid.   When the Boer govern-  i.nt in" 1894  inaugurated in   mining  icy, threw open the country and wel-  ��������� oed capital, Brown organized a com-  :iy in Johannesburg and secured a  se tract of  mineral  country.    The  ���������er government shortly, after refused  give titles to the ground. He teen  (-titiited action action again t the goy-  ivaent through tho Transvaal courts  1 was awarded  $5,000,000 damages.  isident Kruegor arbitrarily set the  pigment aside and until   the   time of  death his claim had not been settled.  ear latter he disposed of a large in-  i-jst in his holdings to  Lord  Strath-  a.  fter making the disposition of his  ���������JjjBirests in South Africa he came to the  *n ;an country and invested larly in  irty.
