Strange as it may seem it is a fact'  nevertheless that the St. Eugene concentrator is turning out more concen-  tiates daily than any mill in the Slocan, or even in the Coeur d'Alene  country in Idaho. It is simply a  marvel and an astonisher to its owners.  Of course the quality of. the ore has  much to do with this, as tho percentage of waste is very small, but the  mill itself is a record breaker just the  same. During the month of Juue the  amount of ore run through the mill  reached nearly 9,000 tons, and the  amount of concentrates turned out  reached 1,937 tons. It , is said that  when the new addition is Qnished the  capacity of the mill will bo easily -100  tons per day. ,_  An error was made iu last week's  Leader with regard to tbo number of  men employed ai this mine. The  number should havo been 242, instead  of 185 as was stated.  LQ.CAL JNEWS. ,  6. A. Gov/ and sister are in 107/n,  J. J. Murphy ^as.ia Qrapbyook yesterday.'

In the  firemans race Nelson was successful,  beating Greenwood and Grand Forks  in both the hub-hnd-hub and wet test.  In tho latter race Nelson got water in  25 seconds, which is also a record for  British Columbia.  The Cranbrook Celebration.  Cranbrook's second annual celebration of Dominion Day was an improvement on that of a year ago. The celebration was given under tho aspices of  the Cranbrook Turf and Atbletsc Association and it was a creditable one  one from every point of view. With  tho new race track and athletic  grounds it was possible to secure a  better lot of trotting and running  horses to enter.into the various racing  contests, and the baseball and football  games could be witnessed with greater  ease from the grand stand. The program of sports was a good one,- and it  was well carried out. There' seemed  to be only ono thing lacking. While  at least ouo band was in attendance,  not a sound of music was heard  throughout the day.  ,    "Was a Swell Alfair. ��  The dance given at the Hotel Kootenay upon the evening of 'the Fuurth  was perhaps' the most enjoyable and  successful social event that has taken  place in Moyie for some time. The  spacious hall was tastefully decorated  with flags and bunting, and beautifully illuminated with gas, presenting  in all a beautiful and attractive appearance. Under tho influence of tbe enchanting strains of music, which was  furnished by Trofessors Wilson aud  Murphy, the merry throng glided,  giving themselves up to tbe full enjoyment of the evening. Dancing was  kept up until the wo sma' hours.  New JCaumlry to Open;  Our new laundry will be in operation July 10th, Wo solicit public  patronage, ���Brcniner & Hickey.

Uncle Sam Grautn Y?exr Requests For
Passen on the Revenue Cntttrs
Which, Go Ont to Meet the Sleam-
■hips From Earopeuu Ports.
When It is generally understood, as it
generally is not, that fully SOO persons
make application daily in season for
passes to board incoming ocean steamers from revenue cutters and that uot
more than 2 per cent of the requests
are granted, lt may be understood how
valuable the treasury department considers these privileges. The occurrence
is rare, but is nevertheless legal for the
master of the ship for which a pass
calls' to refuse to permit the holder to
board his shi{i. All revenue' cutter
passes are issued by the collector of
the port and must be countersigned by
the surveyor. The revenue of every
country on dutiable personal effects
depends for its volume on the ability
of the customs authorities to have
them duly listed and taxed on arrival.
In the event of a promiscuous granting
of cutter passes it would be possible
for a certain dishonest element that Is
to be found uuder every sun to meet incoming friends down the bay and surreptitiously bring ashore at tho pier
valuables purchased abroad!
The treasury department trusts few,
a fact that has Increased Uncle Sam's
revenue a great deal, as the majority of
the boarding officers know. ° Recently
the holder of a. pass boarded a White
Star liner and was approached by a
passenger to whom he was a perfect
stranger.   The latter said:
"I understand you are connected
with so and so. I have a small package hero that I -would like to take
ashore. , There is nothing dutiable in It,
but you understand how the government piles lt on. 1 will meet you at
the head of the gangway when I get
my luggage released, aud I' will take,
the" package from you."
Not billy did this pass holder not take
the package, but the first thing he,,did
upon landiug was to point out the passenger to a member of the surveyor's
staff, who very promptly demanded
ancl received tho package. It contained
jewelry of all descriptions. That an
unauthorized person may not get on
board an Incoming craft in.advance of
the customs officials the following is
attached to every pass that is issued
for tbe revenuo cutter:
"This permission is understood to be
pubject to the assent of the" master of
the steamship*and of the'heal'th officer
as guardian of the public health, aud
boarding is-strictly forbidden until after the custoiifs officers are in charge,
according lo the following extract from
tho passenger act, 1SS2: .
" 'Section 9. That It shall not be lawful for tbe master of any (such) steamship or other vessel not in distress after the arrival of the vessel within any
collection district o'f the'United. States
to allow any person or persons except a
pilot, officer of the customs or health
officer, agents of the vessel and consuls
to come'on-board of the vessel or to
leave the vessel until the. vessel has
been taken in charge by an officer of
the customs nor after charge so taken
without leave of such officer'until all
the passengers, with their baggage,
have been duly landed from the vessel.' "
Whenthe revenue cutter pass system
was originally Introduced, nobody In
the government employ seems to know.
In the old days It was the custom to
meet relatives aud friends back from
an ocean trip on tho pier heads. The
revenue cutter pass is a simple pleco of
paper in itself, but is the study of
many years and countless number of
practical officials. The manner In which
It'Is obtained, the demands made upon
Its holder, the restrictious as to its use
and its composition in every way are
the result of innumerable revisions of
passes that havo preceded It during tho
last 20 ycars, and it now omits nothing
that will protect Uucle Sam, as it really
should do.   '
A few years ago it was possible for
all sorts of idlers to gain, admission to
a pier while lIk* passengers of n ship
from foreign parts were landing. This
had been the practice for some ycars,
and the steamship gateman had the
solo ancl exclusive right of deciding
who should enter. It was supposed
and frequently discovered in Individual
cases that dutiable goods were secretly
passed to these fripnds who camo down
to welcomo.fhb hoiticcomer.
As a consequence tho Inability to get
n revenue cutter pass did not mako
much material difference, tlie.dock affording full scope for any desired work
In a dishonest way. To protect the
purposes''of the cutter, passes and to
place a, further barrier around Illegal
practices the treasury department, recently made a new rule that ailmisslou
to a pier during the docking of an In-,
coining steamer could be obtained by
card only. This admission ticket, liko
the revenue cutter passes, is not transferable and must boar the name of the
holder, the signature of the steamship
company and the indorsement of the
collector'of the'port. The perfection
of the cutter pass system ns to transfer
may be appreciated when it is stated
that the' beneficiary of the pass must
affix his name to the pass on receiving
it nt the. custom house nud again when
he boards the cutter at the Battery.
This eliminates all chance of the pass
being transferred. Transfers have '
been illegally made, but the holder, being unable to furnish the same-signature as that supplied at the custom
house, was ■'compelled to leave tho cutter, and the pass was/taken up.—New

"IIow   about  that job  in .the appraiser's oflice, Mr. President?"
"   "Let'me see, your name is"—
"Jones—Thomas J. Jones of, the Ninth
district." "   ,
"Oh,;' yes! I '■ remember perfectly.
Haven't you heard from that yet?".
"Not a word."
Ring, went the'dummy telephone bell,
aud the following single handed dialogue
between Mr. ' Lauterbach and himself
took place: , ' .
"Hello, Central! Give me the Republican county committee. Is that you,
Mr. Manchester? I'm Lauterbach. All
right. IIow about that job in the appraiser's office for Jones of the N'inth?
Eh? More delay? I'm surprised. I
told you I wanted that fixed up a month
ago. ' Get at it at once. Well, it is time.
What's that? You think there is something better in view if Mr. Jones can'
wait? That's good. You will write to
him about it? All right. Don't lot any
more delays occur. Mr. Jones is one of
our best mou, and wo can't afford to
keep him waiting. I'll ask,-him to call
down and see yon next week about it.
Goodhy." .   ' -
Ten minutes after Jones of tho Ninth
left the oflice, his chest inflated with honest pride, while Secretary Manchester
was reading a hastily written note from

Greeley   on   Politic-*.
In 1S72 Ambrose Shields, an Indian,
was a well known resident of Pnola. IIo
was an enthusiastic supporter of Iloraco
Greeley for the presidency, and he wrote
to that gentleman proposing a speaking
tour of Kansas which should be mado
novel and attractive by a band of Indians, organized by Shields and taken
along. In due time Shields received a
reply in Mr. Greeley's almost illegible
handwriting, and here it is, says the
I'aola (Kan.) Republican, as bestile-
'ciphercd by those who took a look at it:

. Artificial Sillc From Wood.
Two methods have become known of Iato
in Franco for manufacturing silk from
wood—that of Chardonnet and another of
Du Vivicr, both of which in reality are
based upon the sump contrivances. It one
pours nitric ami ..sulphuric acid, not particularly concentrated and iu a limited quantity,, upon cotton consisting of cellulose
(woody substance), one receives a kind of
weak gun cotton that placed into a mix-,
ture. of ether and alcohol becomes a inucous
mass known ius collodion. •: Exposed to the
air this mass becomes solid again by volatil-
ization of the ether and the alcohol. The
two. French chemists .named proparo of
wood a mass similar to collodion that
placed in water Incomes solid nearly instantaneously. From this mass under water
threads are spun that arc called artificial,
silk. But, says tha'.New York Herald, it is
a'well kndwn fact that artificial products
always arc inferior, to natural products.
This is also the. case with the artificial silk
just describedi It is glossy, it is true, but
itydiffers in some degreo from natural or
genuine, silk, particularly hy its combustibility. It burns with a brighter flame
than silk proper, wool or even cotton.

.Murder will out. The sequel to the
fT-nj-ationf-tl Durant trial of three years
:\z.o in San Francisco id a terrible' one.
Thoii'-aiu]*? of people belic\od at tlie
time 1 hnt .Durant was not Uie guilty
man and it will be seen from the following San Francisco despatch that
thoy were right and the courts wore'
Wrong :
"Ouo of tlio saddest aud   most   atrocious legal niurdois ;
that of
since for the murder  of   Blanche   La-
'    monlsind Minnie   Williams,   a   most
'diabolical crime, its  very 'fiendlshness
hardly having a parallel in the annals
of vice, and its pcrpretrator was sought
high and   low   for   several ,days,   the
whole world hoping for its capture and
punishment.    In, the   meantime   the
bo called acute  detectives  and   police
uiuhoiities   concluded   ci   victim   was I
needed,   and    after    fastcring     their [
clutches on 3'oung Luirant,  proceeded
to collect what  thoy   called  evidence,
the whole mass of stuff in   all   probability being manufactured for the purpose of conviction, and all of a circumstantial nature.    Dura 111 stoutly maintained from his arrest up to   tbe   moment of his   execution   that   he    was
innocent ol the   terrible   charge,   but
buca'use he°could  not   explain   every
'moment of  bis   presence   at   certain
times he was convicted   nnd   hanged,
and once more the majesty of tho law,
along with the thick-skulled theory of
these police wiseacres, was duly vindicated. ' Now the true  sequel:    A   few
daj's ago on  his death  bed,  Rev.   M.
Gibson, who at that  time   was  pastor
&f<*Emmanuel church,  where   one   of
the murders was committed, confessed
that he killed both of the victims.    He
.was an active  and   inportant witness
at the trial of poor Durant, the "reason
of which is now quite plain," and , also
in view of tho fact that "suspicion, was
strongly directed to' liim at   the time."

Ono of Wardner's'Sfcorloe.
Everybody knows Jim Wardner, the
famous town'site boomer  arid  roman-
cier, whose adaptability   at   drawing
,   the long bow is well remembered by all
the old timers of tbe Slocan as well as
other districts where he   has  operated.
' Here is,a fair sample  culled  from the
interview which he hud with an eastern
newspaper some time ago :
"Out iu  Kaslo,   British    Columbia,
Wardner supported'a  church,  paying
the pastor's salary and other expenses.
Soon thereafter Wardner   lost  all   bis
money in a mine in Washington,    fie
communicated the fact to  the clergyman and  advised  him   to resign   his
charge and accept a place as  chaplain
in a western   penitentiary,   .This   the
minister did not want to do, but Ward-
- ner insisted, and  seme   months   later
sent to the mbnib'er'3 pf °the   congregation a letter over tfcte'pastbr's signature
reading as follows;
" 'Brothersand Sisters: 1 write to
say goodbye. I den't believe God loves
this church becauee none of you avex
die. I don't think you love each other,
because I never marry any of you. T
cion't think-you love mo, because you
do not pay me.my salary. Your donations are mouldy fruit and wormy
apples, 'by their fruit yo shall know
" 'Brothers, I am going to  a  better

"She  wm ' a sweet  sister, was this
mniden, a. sweet sister of Jolhn. Jones',
when she came to me one evenin'y just
ns old Sol was hiding- his fire-red voyage
bock of the trees1 in the 'far west, and
asked me in an entrancing, ajxilogetic
way if I wouldn't assist her in her bicycle practice, 'as Brother John has a
pressing engag-oment, and can't "be with

more about bicycling'than he does.'   "
"Say, just, then I could>liave hugged

for his sister—well, I did not dare.

She certninly-'was the most boaiwiful

was no doubt about this, ttiis lesson
would bo extremely interesting. Inhere

drop frame machines and fchey all wore
strirts.    This  case w&s  far  different.
However, I got on,read off the wheel,
using the step* 'man-fashion,' aaid explained to her in detail every succeeding movement.   Then Miss Jones tried
it.    Mrst t firmly grasped the handle
bar with one hand, holding- the frame
in front of the saddle with, the other.
Miss Jones reached over my arm, took
hold of tho pripsi put her ri£-M foot on
the step, made a lunge, for the saddle—
and kerflop, we  both'   landed   on   the
hard  rood.    I  was   underneath,    the
wheel made up tho secoml layer of tQue
pile,  while Miss  Jones t;at,   not   too
gently, on top ox the w,hole.   T thought
one of the handle bars had punctured
my side tmd that I waa swaJlowing a
hetrogenous   mass of  bicycle spokes,
good solid clay and rubber tires.   Miss
Jones did not get oft the heap at all but
sa/t there half Bobbing, half laughing,
and savd she hoped I was not injured,
that she.was eo sorry, etc.    With an
almcBt herculaneaa. effort I rolled from
my position uu'dcir the wheel im& its
fair, but "heavy burden, and aJ."ter pulling myself together, gvive Mios Jones
my harnd and helped her to hea- feet.   I
inquired if she were hurt but she rejoicingly informed me that she came
out unscathed and -was ready for another trial.
"I was not much injured—no—-but
whatever, t&aughts I had' had of spending an eAjoyable evening were rudely
dispelled from my mifid. No, I was not
injured, but J. could fjlmost swear that-
one of the jvedol* of that macliine had
cut out a few sg-iiiri} inches Of rny &liin
bone and 1 imctfritied I could feel it
dangling about my ankle. I was also
aware of the f act .hat there wero several
non-repairable punctures in my transfers and that my anatomy wtis bruised
and. ^ojfe in more plo.ces than I cbuld
enumora-te in & thrco-page article
"To tell the truth I was not at all
anxious to continue the demoralizing
lesson, as T was t-mre *hat this experience would be the death of me/but I
wouldn't for an instant think of telling my fair companion that I had to
give up.
"JNo! she aboi'ld be ihe first to sny it
was time to postpone tlie p-nictice until
another day. I was Ln'hope-s tit.** wheel
was in finch condition, aft<.*r the hard
ffdl, that it would bo- irnpoHPibleto ust-
rest we would "return homeward.
"Well, I trotted^ ■ n-ottcd and trt
fed after thatv^h^' -xiid 1 thought sj'
never would stop.    She went :*nd wei
j and went, ajtd I believe if I had not
hinted to her that I sometimes became
fatigued, she would have been going
yet.    But she did finally stop, an,d in
sheer exhaustion I fell tx> the roadside,
anxi when J hnd 'time to re-cover my
breath, and look about us I found we
were away ■ out   in   the   country,   at}
least three miles from home.   She sat
clown, at the roadside, a little way from
me.   Then &he talked.
"She  dilated  upon the beauflies of
the siunmer's evening, the multi-eol-
oj'ed foliage of the trees, the irridescent
clouds which looked like rare jewels
hung in the western sides, as the rays
of the now obscured sun catd. indescribable glittering tints over ihem.    Bat
poor me, my body and mind were racked
with pain, ahd I did not appreciate our
surroundings.   After tbe fall then the
unusual exercise, overy    muscle    and
nervo hi my body seemed to tingle with
eJectric shocks.   I was just about done
up and when I would think of there-
turn journey nay heart would nearly
bound from, its natural and best location. „ Every breath I took seemed to be
drawing huge chunk's of solid air into,
tny lungs, instead'of the pure, country
atmosphere which I Ws-ts actually taking into my system.' I was tired, sore
and   disgusted  with  everything, even
with  the maiden at raty side, whom I
now thought one of the ugliest, most
uninteresting persons it had been ray
m"isforrune>4 yo meet.   1 was1 thinking,
thinking deeply; thinking- some things
I -would, not. dare <thjnk aloud*, when I
was suddenly brought to my senses by
iny, fair companion saying:   'Well, I'm
ready.'    So was I—I had to be, and I
at  once arose and  grabbed   up  that
wheel.   Of, course, before I could start
her homeward it was ilrsti nee<?ssary to
gov her on tb tbe bicycle, an.d I trembled as I thought of the task before, me.
This  time I braoed myself against a
fe.&ee and held  onto that wheel liko
grim-visaged death, and , when    Mios

j Jones boarded it in re>aily artistic stjde,
I was'greatly pleased.   J started, her off
. gentily and then took hold of the saddle
again, prepared to trot homo bade of
the young*, lady, like a. dog following its
master.    I was congratulating myself
upon the little trouble experienced in
getting her  started,  when  the front
wheel of the bisycle began to wobble
and chug! went the ofi handle bar into
a feoiee.' Luckily, I waa on, the opposite
side of the wheel and pidlingterrificaJly
it the nigh handle bar I got it and Its
burden again perpendicular.  This time
I asked her if she were infjured.and
showing me an aw-ful-ly bruised hand,
she bravely replied, 'a little, but it's im-
materiaL'. Why,- the skin, was scrn-ped
off the Vrhole side of her band, but. she
bore it like a heroine.*   And^right here
I wish to say thai I beg-iui to think just'
a wee little bit more of Miss Jones than
I had while we faiere sitting at the K>ad-C
aide & way'back.
"Once again she started homeward
and by the way she pumped and pushed
those pedals I know she ivas mad about
that mccident, and as she gained speed,
I also began to realize thai my powers of
endurance would give out ere long, unless shereduced her gait. At last I had
to give" up but I said nothing to her. I
let ber guide on homeward', as I thought
siie would soon notice nxy absence and
then would either dismount or .fall oft, I
cared*nofc which. But she went on and I
gradually lost Kight of her in the darkness that was growing upon the face of
tho earth. I wm glad thatshe had gone
and Jleisurely'elitnbed upon a rail fence
at'the roadside and sat there meditating. I was mad clear through and the
more I meditated the angrier I got. But
at, lost it dawned upon me that it was
