S3  L06AL 60NGENTRATES  Mrs. M. A. Wilson, of Rossland, is  visiting friends in New Denver.  M. Lavell has opened an hotel in Slo-  can City, opposite the Arlington.  The freight rates have been reduced  from the coast cities to Kootenay.  John Williams was elected a New  Deuver school trustee on Saturday.  R. M. Spencer, late of Georgetown,  Colorado, is now a resident of Silverton.  Dr. Gonim, of Sandon, was married  laSrweek to   Miss  Beadleston, of Cody.  Miss McGillivray of Missoula, Mont.,  is visiting her uncle, Angus McGillivray..  Mr. Hicks and partner have located  more claims on the south fork of Kaslo  creek.  The cash receipts of the Record Office  in New Denver during June wore  53,091.  Service will be held in the Presbyterian church on Sunday at 7:80 p. in.  All cordially invited.  Mrs. Livingstone his bee11 elected a  school trustee in Koslo. Hurrah! for  the women of Kaslo.  Provincial Road Inspector Moore  promises that the road to Silverton will  be put in better condition for travel in  the near future.  Little Vera Sutherland was painfully  scalded about the head and arms on  Monday by falling headforemost into a  pa.il of boiling water.  Main Bros., of Sandon, have secured  premises in Kaslo and will open their  headquarters there next week They  will still retafn their store in Sandon.  Lord Minto has rented Capt. Clive  ���Phillipps-Wolley's house at Oak Bay for  a period of two months, and intends installing his family and suite in Victoria  for that period.  During the month of June the mines  of Movie shipped 1S00 tons of concentrates. If this ore is worth $85 a ton  yearly shipments at this rate would be  worth nearly two millions of dollars.  The bodies of Eric Ericson and Peter  Foss were recovered last week. They  were killed by a snowslide in April  while working at their claims on Bear  creek, in the Lai'Io-Duncan country.  Miss Fenton, who has taught school  in Nakusp for some time is leaving that  town to attend the Ladies' College at  Whitby. A host of admiring friends  wish her success wherever she may go.  The celebration passed away at Nelson, but Martin O'Reilly & Co. did not.  They are still selling drv goods at the  old stand, and always pleased to receive trade from the Slocan or any  other part of this country.  C. A. Saudiford, son of W. II. Sandi-  ford, arrived in New Denver this week  from Servia. He will probably assist  in the management of the property on  Four Mile creek which the Northwest  Mining Syndicate will   shortly develop.  To permit of the Sandon Sunday  school taking part in the New Denver  Sunday school picnic, the date has been  changed from the 13th of July to the  l*2th���-next Thursday. Baskets will be  left  at  Pvman's hall before 9 o'clock of  Queen, on Trout creek. A shaft will be  sunk on the lead.  Work is being resumed on the Chicago, a claim near the Freddie Lee. It  is owned by A. C. Fry and F. P. O'Neill.  Work is still progressing on the  Minne-ha-ha, one of the Carnation  group. It is under bond to L.

The threatening  weather  played sad  havoc with Slocan City's celebration of  Dominion Day, in that it kept  to home  the vast majority of the  people of  the  Slocan towns.      But the crowd in attendance   were   well   entertained   by  the  citizens at the foot of  the lake, and the  day [jassed off as only days can that are  given up to celebrating  in  any of  the  Slocan lake towns.     The  weather  was  good for the sports, and in the  football  games���particularly in   the  first half of  the ''go" between  Silverton and Slocan  ���the playing was as  fast and pretty as  could be seen anywhere.   The Silverton  team won from Sandon  in a ragged and  slow game,  but  the Slocan  City  boys  gave them lots of fun for  their money,  losing the game, however, through their  lack   of   combination   playing and   in-'  ability to follow up the   ball  at  critical;  moments.        Silverton's     defense      isi  stronger   this   season   than   ever,  and]  their combination  work  is  nearly   per-J  feet, but they lack  the  speed.     Slocan  was strong in the wings, and,  like Sandon, has some good individual   players,'  but their combination work was ragged  and defense weak.     This lost them the  game.  The Caledonian sports, and horse and,  bicvele races, passed  off  quietlv,  verv j Whether in creeK ne<  little monov changing  hands on anv of I,,u cltlu<''s,dl;   ot'  th(!  1;im''''   sellout  The Atlin Gold Fields of British  Columbia, owing principally to peculiar  legislation���legislation opposed to British traditions and suicidal in principle  ���earned an unenviable reputation in  the past year as a placer-mining camp.  Measures which aim at correcting, in  part at least,the mistakes of last session  are being put through the Provincial  Parliament now and aliens will hereafter be able to purchase and work-  placer claims in British Columbia.  Whether it be for its gold alluvials or  its gold quartz���not to mention good  copper prospects���the Atlin camp is well  worth the attention of mining men.  The value of gold won during the past  year in the district���entirely from  placers by an expensive method of  working���cannot be gauged by the  Government return of royalty paid. A  very large part of the gold taken out of  the best claims escaped paying royalty,  inasmuch as the wages of laborers employed was generally paid in gold-dust  and the claim-owners' supplies were  frequently purchased with gold-dust; so  that, at best, it was but the profit from  such claims that paid tax. The production of the great bulk of the claims,  which either barely met expenses or  were worked at a loss, paid no royalty.  On 20,580 oz. of gold a royalty of 1 per  cent, was collected; this would represent a total production of 8!25,2!s0,  allowing 910 per oz. It is estimated  that the value of the actual go'doutput  of the camp in the past year was probably not less than 81,250,000. Much of  the ground was tied up by litigation  until after July, and as work ended  with September, the gold was taken out  in two months' time.  Ah far as last vear's work shows,  this  yet little attention has been paid tosu  ores.    The gold ore*  generally  appear  to carry some silver  Bodies of copper ore, showing free  copper, have been discovered in different parts of the district. In one of the  largest of these veins the copper is  associated with manganese.  As may be inferred from what has  been said above in regard to the hydro-  graphic features of the country, water  power can be made available in all  directions for mining, milling and  transportation purposes. There is sufficient timber in the vicinity of the camp  to satisfy lumber requirements for some  years to come.  Atlin, unlike much of the "frozen  north," is  easily accessible.

That is the process that has been going on for many  years in every country where there was  game that the skin-hunter could find  and kill.  It appears from a work recently published in England by Mr. Bryden, an  African traveler, that many of the  species of big game of that continent  have been entirely destroyed by the  skin-hunters. Among the more important species so exterminated are the  white rhinoceros and the quagga.  The    business    of    skin-hunting   is j be judged it carries higher values than'  carried on largely throughout  the dis-   t!l�� hrst one.1'  The other two veins have  tricts of Africa  lying  near  the British! only   been   recently   discovered,    the  colonial possessions and the Transvaal  From these districts alone hundreds  o  14s. per ton for freight and smeltinsr  charges, leaving ��8 (3s. per ton, and he  states the estimated working cost at ��3  14s per ton after allowing for exploration, development, stoping, milling,  management, etc., thus leaving a profit  of ��4- 12s. per ton, which on an output  of 15 tons per day of 300 working days  in the year, will give a return of ��20,700.  The freight and smelting charges of the  first shipment of ore from these claims  was $20.75, afterwards reduced to $18  per ton, and it is expected that a further  reduction will be obtained in the near  future. The New British Columbia  Development Corporation, Limited, who  are the Vendors to and the promoters of  the company, have fixed the purchase  price at ��55,000, payable in shares, or  cash and shares, at the option of this  company.

Shields, a wealthy petroleum operator,  of Los Angeles, to a 'Post-Intelligencer'  from the recreation grounds singing  the national anthems. In the evening  a very successful dance was given in  Sclionbnrg's hall, to which a large number from New Dourer remained.  The conditions necessary for successful hydraulic working are existent in a  marked degree.

Men who follow  skin-hunting as a trade in those regions  are described as parasites who do not  come into the country to settle, but  destroy the game that the real settlers  woidd use for food, in order to get a  few shillings for the hides.  The zebra's skin makes a leather as  tine as calfskin and it is sold as such in  the London market,with those of several  species of antelope and deer.

FACTS    AHOUT    CHINA.
China  and its dependencies  lmvti
total area of 1,-218,401 square, in
a population of •102,ii80.o0n     In  area it
includes nearly one-twelfth of the  total
area o< the y-lohe, while  its  population
includes nearly ouethird of all the people, in the world.    As compared with the
United States,  the hitter's island  pos
sessions being excluded, China has 800,-
UUO more square miles of territory  and
more than five times as   many  inhabitants.    The population'of China  proper
per square mile is 292; that of the State
of   Rhode   Island   is 25<J,' and that of
Texas (»
China is the, land where everything is
upside down. Thus in Canton the women act ae sailors and boatmen, while
the men are employed as chambermaids, laundresses, and seamstresses.
In salutation the Chinaman shakes his
own hand instead of that of his visitor.
As a mark of respect he. puts his hat on
instead of taking1' it off. Their sign-
hoards are perpendicular instead of
horizontal. In reading Chinese print it
is necessary to begin at the right hand
side at the bottom and read to the left
and up. The Chinese raise the toe of
tlie shoe and depress the heel instead of
raising the heel, so (hat they sometimes
appear to be in danger of falling over
backwards.
The Tartars, who overthrew the native Chinese dynasty of China in 1644,
are the ruling class in China. There
are in the neighborhood of 10,000,000
Tartars in the empire. The ''Chinese
pigtail" dates from the Tartar invasion,
when the Tartars forced the Chinese to
grow cxies after the Tartar custom as a
mark of subjection. ThoxxRands of
Chinese were killed for refusing to plait
their hair, and even now the New China
party has as one of its objects the abolition of the old rule. There are, or were
until recently, less limn. 12,000 foreigners permanently resident in China. Of
this number 5,000 are British, 1,600
Americans, and 1,200 Japanese.
Most Christian ministers wear black
clothes The Chinese priests stick to
bright yellow, people on this side the
world signify their sorrow at the death
of a relative or friend by putting on
black garments. In China the mourning color is white. In the'J United
States most people believe that the
living have the first call upon their
charity and care. In China more precautions are taken for the preservation
of the body after death than before, and
a Chinaman will lie down suppe'rless on
his mat rather than neglect to light the
evening joss candle in honor of his
dead relatives. In most countries the]
deathbed is surrounded by weeping-
relatives, and often a minister and a
doctor are present. In China the dying
are carried out of the house and left
alone in some, vacant space to die.
There art; three principal religions in
China—Buddhism, Taolism, and Confucianism. The latter is almost without forms and ceremonies, consisting
chiefly in study and contemplation of
the teachings and works of the ancients.
Buddhism and Taolism both have
elaborate and splendid ceremonials.
Taolism is the older, buddhism having-
made its appearance in China about
1,800 years ago. It. is now I he religion

The coiiimencenient of the establish-1
meat of the so-called -'spheres of in- j
fhience" in China was in bs!)7, when the. I
Germans seized the Port of Kiau-Chau,
on the east coast of Shantung, and
during the next month secured from
the Chinese a lease for 99 years of the
town, harbor and district. Two months
later Russia got possession of Port
j Arthur and Talienwan, with their adjacent waters, on a lease for 25 years,
with the privilege of renewal. Within
the boundaries of the leased territory,
which are as yet undefined, Russia has
supreme control. Port Arthur harbor
and the larger portion of the harbor of
Talienwan arc therefore closed to all
except the war vessels of Russia and
China. In Jane, 1898, Great Britain
took possession of Wei-Hai-Wei, and is
to hold the port as long as Russia holds
Port Arthur. Finally, the French, in
April, 1898, secured a lease of Kwang-
Cbau-Wan hay, on the east coast of the
Tien-Chau peninsula.
During the year 1S98 China imported
from all foreign nations' goods valued
at $1-10,000,01)0. During the same year
the exports of.China amounted to $118,-
UU(),00() As an evidence of which na-
iles,,aiul! 'ion has the greatest interest in China
so far as trade and commerce go it may
be stated that of the total of Chinese
imports Great Britain and its colonies
supply goods to the amount of $1.1.1,-
000,000, while of the exports it buys
about $00,000,0i)0, or more than one-half.
Most of the English trade with China
is transacted through the British Crown
Colony of Hong Kong, which was ceded
to Great Britain by China in 1841.
During the same year the United States
imported goods from China to the value
of $1H,000,000, and sent back in return
American goods valued at a. little more
than $9,000,000.
The policeman  of  Pekin  are,  or at
least were,  armed   chiefly   with  small
drums, which they beat loudly in order,
it is presumed, to let burglars and other
marauders know that they are coming.
All night long the watchmen beat their
way around the streets,'and as a natural
consequence    are   said   to   make   few
arrests.    The  pigeons  of   Pekin   have
each a light whistle tied to  their  tails,
which gives forth a loud soxmd as they
fly.   Sometimes five or six   whistles of
different  tones are attached,  and the
result is a more or less melodious confusion  of soxmds.   Tlie blind (and in
Pekin blind men and women are numerous) also use drums to announce their
coming, and warn other people to get
out of their way.   By the difference in
the sound as it  is reflected back  from
walls or pavements it is said that the
blind   Chi'iamen   can   always    locate
themselves exactly, so that they nead
no guide.   The beggars of Pekin are
another, peculiar institution.    They are
organized, and have a ruler of their
own, whose orders they are quick to
obey.   Sometimes a group of the beggars
will   gather in  front of a merchant'*
store and make such, an infernal racket
that he is glad to bribe them to go away.
Another method of extorting money is
for a beggar  to go  to a merchant or
householder and announce that unless
he is promptly paid one or  two dollars
he will commit suicide  on  his   victim's
doorstep.    If the money is refused, he
is  likely  to carry out his   threat,   in
which case the authorities may give the
unfortunate  merchant   much   trouble,
and  sometimes  blackmail  him out of a
large amount of property.
At a grand dinner the Chinese beu'in
with sweet meats and conclude with
soup. They sometimes sit at a table
for five or six hours, with a midday
interval or recess, during which bowls
are brought in and the members of the
party wash their hands and heads in
hot water Fricaseed dog- is a favorite
dish, a special breed of poodles being-
raised for eating purposes. Stewed rat
is another delicacy, and the Chinese are
also fond of eggs when they have passed
the point where even the cold storage,
man could call them fresh. Sharks'
fins, birds' nests, peacock?' livers, green
ginger, cocks' combs, and fowls' hearts
and brains are dishes which might be
found on the menu of a high-class
Chinese banquet.

A young g-entleman happened to sit
at church in a pew adjoining- <me in
which was a young- lady, for whom he
conceived a most sudden and violent
passion, felt desirous of entering- into a
courtship on the spot, but, the place not
suiting-a formal declaration, exigency
suo-g-ested the following plan :
lie politely handed his fair neighbor
a bible, open, with a pin stuck in the
following text (2nd epistle of St. John,
verse o): "Arid now I beseech thee,lady,
not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we. had
from the beginning, that we, love, one
another,"
She returned it with the following
(2nd chapter of Iluth, verse 16): "Then
she fell on her face and bowed herself
to the ground, and said unto him, Why
have it grace in thine eyes that thou
Khouldst' take notice of me, seeing I am j
a stranger r"'
He returned the book, pointing to the
12th verse of the 3rd epistle of St. John:
"Having many things to write unto
you 1 would not with paper and ink,
hut 1 trust to come unto you and speak
face to face."
The marriage took place the next
week. ,

If wages were doubled, the  line of profit would be shifted, so that  a smaller number would pay a good  return to the owners, some of those  formerly very profitable would barely  pay a profit on the outlay, while a  larger number would be made unprofitable. If wages were reduced  to a bare subsistance, or if it were  possible to obtain labor for nothing,  there would still be some deposits  that would not pay the cost of opera  tion. The local question is between  the payment of the products locally  in wages or distributing them among  the stockholders in various parts of  the world. The feeling locally is as  a consequence in favor of high wages.  L  Jacobsoii. II M Walker.  Batik- Axe fr. Silver Mountain, A .Jaeolison  Four Sucker.-:, Wilson it, Lt S Viui.->tom:.

Archie McVittie returned Tuesday  froui an extended visit to the Pincher  Creek oil region, bringing back with  him several large bottles of crude  petroleum which has been pronounced  by analysis to be of a high grade.  There is a district about 20 miles  square in that region which shows  considerable quantities of petroleum  almost any where, turn over a boulder  and oil will be found adhering to it;  dig small pits almost anywhere at  random, and in most of them oil will  seep.  A settler there has a hole six feet  square, three feet deep, the sides  boarded up, into which oil and water  constantly seeps. He uses a common  cream separator for extracting the  oil, selling the proceeds in the Mormon  settlements, making a good living  therefrom. Another method of separating, used by the inhabitants of  that district, is to take cans' and fill  with the mixture; the bottom is perforated and the water runs off leaving  the oil, which is emptied out, and the  process repeated. Mr. McVittie had  about two quarts of the oil, which  was gathered in this crude manner  in less than ten minutes.  Some years ago an effort was made  by boring to find the source of the  petroleum, but the work seemed to  have been misdirected; the operator  went inside of the territory where all  the indications were apparent, and  on a prairie underlaid with a deep  wash, proceeded to bore there. At a  depth of 150 feet a heavy flow of  water was encountered and a very  good artesian well���still flowing���  was the result.  Later, others went in with a complete plant and started nearer the  district proper. This also was an ill-  fated venture, as work had hardly  begun before the plant was completely destroyed by fire. An abandonment of work followed and nothing'  has since been done.  Mr. McVittie has secured control of  a large district, and has also perfected arrangements whereby an English  outfit will drill 1000 feet in the midst  of the oil field. Further operations  will depend upon conditions, of  course. ���Cranbrook Herald.  CONDENSED ADS.  jCondensed advertisements, such as For Sale,  \\ anted, Lost.

The study of economics has a tendency to lessen popular veneration lor  the mere possessors of  wealth  or of  the means of securing wealth  from  day to clay.    The wealth of the world |  i;; comparatively trifling-and has been j  variously  estimated  at from four to j  ten   years' production.    A  building'  over  ")0  years old  is  rare   in   this  country, and the average life of  that  form of wealth is much less than half  a century.   Other forms have a  still  shorter life,    Clothing may have  an  average life of a year, and food  does  not last so long.
