Divine service at the Presbyterian  church has been changed to 10:30.  II. Ham has purchased the Slocan  City dairy business from John Taylor  of this town.  Services will be held in St. Stephen's  church next Sunday at 11 a.m. Everybody welcome.  H. L. Johnston, roaclmaster of N. &  S. has gone to the coast. Pat Gallagher  will have charge of the road in future.  Ernest Brindle, after completing a  course in watch making and repairing at  his Ontario home, has resumed business  in New Denver, having taken the Pyman  store for his quarters.  J. YV. Hamilton of Sarnia, CHt , was  in Sandon this week taking a look at  the Ajax and other properties. People  in his town ho'd a large amount of the  Ajax stock.  Local capitalists are putting in a limited system of waterworks into the Nob  Hill portion of the town. The water is  to be piped from the springs back of the  depot. The town's supply is to be also  .  drawn from the same source.  The newly appointed Methodist minister who is to take this field in charge  will arrive in a few weeks. The Ontario  conference is held a month later than  the conference in B. C, hence the delay  in the new pastor's arrival here.  M\ W. Day continues to manufacture  a line line of soft drinks at Sandon. His  blood orange cider is simply immense  and should be tasted by all who appreciate a beverage that will freshen the  inner man without jagifying the senses.  The new train and boat service has  changed the time of the arrival and departure of mails. The mail from the  states, Nelson and lake points arrives at,  11 a. m. and closes at 2:45; from Sandon  way arrives at 2:15, closes at 11 a.m.;  from the coast, arrives at 12.10, closes at  1.30 p. ro.  Secretary Cox of the miners' union at  Sandon reports that the outlook is favorable for a speedy settlement of the present dispute between tlie mine owners  and miners. What the secretary bases  his hopes upon has not been stated, but  he is in a position to  know  how the sit-  been   made  during   the. week, with a  j view to bonding.  Negotiations are underway for the purchase of the Royal Five group, lying  north of the Mollie Hughes on the lake  side. An offer has been made for the  property.  Work is being pushed in the No. 3  tunnel of the Bosun,,by contract. More  men are being employed on the ore  dumps and at other outside work, but  no work is being done on the ore bodies  in the .-working tunnels.  TEN 1YIII.E ITEMS.  Geo. Aylwin is watchman at the Enterprise.  Geo. Aylwin secures his hotel license  next month.  The snow has been going..very rapidly this week. ��*���,.' V  Toronto money is becoming interested on the creek.  Bears are unite numerous on the  creek this season.  Several finestrings of trout have been  caught this spring*.  Ferguson & Munro's pack train is  giving* every satisfaction.  ��� The re-opening of the store will prove  a boon to the working parties on the  several claims.  An inspection of the Neepawa was  made last week by _h.ira*e Aylard,wit!i-  a view to bonding.  Two men are. working on the Golden  Sun group. They have I he same ledge  as the Black Cloud.  Enquiries are bebyg made by Montreal capitalists for some of the leading  properties on the, creek.  There has been a lot-of unnecessary  and unjustifiable staking done, of late,  giving rise to inu/.h fe.elitig.  Work oil the Black Cloud, opposite  the Enterprise, has disclosed a strong-  lead, with about six inches of galena  and zinc.  It is understood the wagon road will  be carried up the north side of the creek  from Aylwin to the valley below the  Enterprise.  But few men as yet have gone up to  the head.of the creek to perform work.  There will be scores of claims vacant iu  The Fidelity mine has been sold, and  thus another New Denver property is  in the right hands to be made a shipper.  A report from Montreal under date of  June 9th, states there was quite'a flurry  in the mining exchange there that day,  when it was learned that the Fidelity,  which the report styles, "another valuable western mining property," had  come under eastern control. The president of the Montreal stock exchange,  Hon. A. W. Morris, and Charles GJ.  Grilh'th, of Spokane are the purchasers  To quote from the report: "These  gentlemen have secured the well-known  'Fidelity' property, adjoining the Bosun,  quite near New Denver, in the Slocan  district. Mr. Morris says the Bosun,  which is now being worked within a  few feet of the Fdelity lead, has shipped  920 tons of ore since September last, the  profits of which have been from SI,200  to 81,500 per car of 20 tons.'1  This is the first authentic information  received regarding the transfer of the |  Fidelity, though a rumor to that effect  has frequently been heard of late. The  purchase price has not been given out  but it is understood that Scott McDonald and F. J. Finiicane, who bought tlie.  property from A S. Williamson,' L. F  H.olt_ and F. L. Byron about a year  ago for ��15,000, cleaned up a good margin of profit in the transaction. The  report is current that the late purchasers will start work on the property at  an early date, but it is not probable the  mine, will be extensively operated until,  the labor question is settled. ;  :STOr,l.    TIT I.    UNION'S    BOOKS.  .'ilit.oi' Clitl'n  Is AeeuS-0  (��f !5.iii(*  Alixed  Up in-the Theft  and  i��  Arrested.  A report from Sandon states that between the hours of 1 :30 and 3 o'clock  Sunday.morning the office of the Miners'  Union was entered and the minute book,  containing the records of all the proceedings of the organization, ancl the  ledger, which contained the name of  each member and address of nearest  relative, were taken from the book-case  in which they were kept. A few old  cash receipt books were also taken, but  these" were unimportant. Entrance was  gained through a back window, and as  no attempt was made , to safeguard the  books it was an easy matter to carry  them away.  And now comes the funny part of it.  Joe Stockham and Mike Kerlin, officers  of the union, quietly followed the K. &  S. train to Kaslo Sunday and proceeded  to Nelson on Monday, where an order  was procured placing in- custody C.  Cliffe, editor of the Sandon Mining Review, for having committed the theft.  The offices of E. M. Sandilands and J.  M. Harris were also searched on Monday morning in the hope of finding the  books or some evidence of them but  nothing was found.  "What evidence' the union has that  would in any way implicate Editor Cliffe  or Messrs. Sandilands and Harris has not  been made public, but it is evident from  the action taken by the officers that they  have strong suspicions, and will make  the perpetrators of the theft smart for it,  if it can be proven against, them, regardless of whom they may be.  pS.?3-3S5--2?83 S3 S>3 __S_yS___-3-3_lBS_  (23  ^^_^_SSSSSS_iB_5SS_-SS_-3__S-_33S-SS  Their money u',..-  on Sandon  tuition stands, and he  expects to see all ' that vicinity  the producing properties  resume operations upon the $3.50 basis.  The differences between the miners  and the mine owners over the eight-  hour law are, according to the Nelson  Tribune, practically at an end in southern Kootenay. By the middle of July  every mine will be working. The rate  of wages will be the same as was paid  before the differences arose. There will  be no hard feelings between the contending parties when the differences are  adjusted, because both, in the main,  have acted sensibly. The only people  likely to be "sore" will be those who  hoped that the miners would be lawless.  SLOCAN    MINISKAL    FLOAT.  The Arlington increased   its force last  week.  There are   18   men   working at the  Whitewater Dee)).  Pat Stratford will prospect in the  Windermere district this summer.  Ore has been shown up on all of the  three claims in the Hartney group.  Work on the Sarah Jane, adjoining the  Neglected on the east,   was  started this i  week.  Some fine ore is being sacked for ���  shipment at the Tamarac, on Springer '  creek. '  Several parties have, left here. re���. ently  to prospect in the Windermere district.  East Kootenay.  One hundred feet of tunnel work is  being driven on the Mero claiin. across  the creek from New Denver-  The test shipment of 90 sacks of ore  from the Capella group, Goat mountain,  was made Tuesday to Trail from the  wharf.  An inspection of the Hartney and  other Silver   Mountain  properties  has  Assessment work for the"year on the  Montezuma has just been completed.  This claim commands the valley below  tlie Enterprise.  Renewed interest is being taken in  the Bondholder, as the recent strike on  the Mabou shows the vein to be trending directly for that group.  The difficulty surrounding the Iron  Horse, caused by the death ot D. McDonald, has been fixed up, ancl the property is now in shape to be handled in a  deal.  Work has been suspended of late in  the shaft on the Ohio, owing to surface  water. The vein is heavily mineralized,  with IS inches of fine looking ore on the  hanging wall.  Three men start, work on the Gatineau  group, to the east of the Enterprise,  next week They expect to crosscut  the ledge in another 30 feet. Surface j  ore from this property gave ;.0t ozs in  silver.  The expenditure of sf'tO.OOi. in outside  improvements at the Enterprise will  make a great change in the. appearance,  of things. The contemplated concentrator and compressor buildin_/s, and  other necessary structures, will form  the.nucleus of an important camp. I  Two to one is   not,a bad   score at all.  It was enough io win   the  game, and at  the same time send the  Sandon boys up  the gulch to their sum: home in the hills:  with a bit of a warm spot   in   their open  'marts for the hoys of Xew Denver.     The game was the  best, of the   season,   and  was witnessed by all the  lovers of the sport in the  Queen City  of   the lake.  Aside from an occasional  tilt on the field  because  of   the slowness   of  the  referee to decide the   point.,  and his for-  getfulness to blow his whistle, the game  was a faultless  one.     The  teams  were  well matched   in   weight  and   it was al!  clean cheeking  and  kicking  and  sharp  combination work.      rhe   goal   keepers  had less to do than in former games, and  most of the playing was in   the center of  the field.     Occasionally   New  Denver's  forwards would do some  pretty combination work and get the  ball close to the  Sandon goal, when  back  it would come  to the centre  and  perhaps  shoot un to  the   New   Denver's   backs.        It    was  a game in which New Denver's forwards  and   half-backs  showed   themselves  in  their best, and it was their's throughout.  West was not   hemmed   in   by  heavy  tackles as in the game at  Silverton and  was able to do some  pretty  work.     On  the lines Geo. Davis and Smail  played a fast and clever _ame,  and Brindle and  Thompson always managed   to   brin_   their  I loe in contact with   the  >i-.111 at  I critical moments.    Wooley was  | not playing and   the good work  'that distinguished ��� hi:n   ai Silverton wa.- missing, but Currie  Morris Davis iind Owens,   played wi;  Spirit,   Unit   wa.      thoroughly   enjoy  The weather had a de;>:i  themselves champions.    Tlie  team  has  several fast, men in   its   forward line and  sturdy   fellows and do  And  Sandon's  backs  at,(I  its half-backs art  no! lack steam,  are strong kickers.      They   make very  little effort about it,   but  always lift the  ball over the field.    The team was weal;  in getting the ball  away  from the local  forwards.     Gusty   played  ail  over the  field, and  was   very  successful  early in  the game.    But the homo forwards soon  got onto his tactics  and  found  no difficulty in taking the ball from him.    But  he set them a hot pace when begot after  the ball.    The  Cliffe   brothers   played a  fast game, but,   like  Grierson  and IVe-  gan, the other forwards,   they got badly  mixed in the   bunch   work.     Sandon's  half-backs put up a winning game in the  first half, but the weather was too much  for them and in  the  second half, when  tin* home team is always strongest, they  wilted.    Peel did not  play  as strong a  game at goal as he  would have liked to,  but the backs, Copelan  and Kelso, were  sure and safe kickers and seldom allowed  the ball to pass them.  But Sandon's weakest point was in its  rooter line.    As the egg laved without a  cackle will never  hatch   out a  rooster,  neither will a football team Vie successful  without its rooters.

C. Goldfields,Ltd. The  capital of the company is ��150,000 in  ��l shares.  The facts in the purchase of the Enterprise some weeks ago by the London  and B. C. Goldfields in conjunction with  the New   Zealand Minerals Co., were  made known at the time.     The price  paid was not stated, but it is learned  from a reliable source that it did not  reach ��300,000.     The fact that in two  week's time the same property was resold to a subsidiary company at a capitalization of ��150,000 or  ��750,000,  will  give some idea of the good feeling that  exists in London mining circles towards  the silver-lead properties of the Slocan.  Undoubtedly the good opinion Mr.  Kendall formed in his investigations of  the Enterprise was shared by the promoters of the new company, and his re:  port upon the property unquestionably  had much to do with the highly satisfactory condition of mind that must exist when such a favorable company promotion can be made in so short a time.  Mr. Kendall's report has much that is  of interest. Speaking of the topography  and geology of the property it says: "The  mine is situated at altitudes ranging  from about 4600 feet, to about 5H00 feet.  niid is connected with the Canadian Pacific railway system   by   means   of a  wagon road eight miles  in length and  terminating in a  loading  wharf by the  side of Slocan lake.   So far as we could  see, however, the claims are underlain  by granite of different kinds.    Onlv one  ore, by present methods, we estimate at  $445,000.  Speaking of the cost of working the report says: The rocks  in  and  adjoining  the vein are  hard,   and  therefore somewhat costly to work.    On the other hand  very little timber is needed.    At present  all drilling  is  clone  by  hand.     If machinery was introduced for the performance of this operation the cost of mining  would be  reduced  considerably.,   With  such plant and methods  as are now-in  use the cost or working,  at  the  rate of  thirty tons per day,  would be as under:  Stoping and  sorting,  $13  per  ton; exploration   and  development,  $1.75  per  tori; haulage  to  wharf,   $3.25  per tori;  superintendence,  general expenses, and  taxes, $2.10 per ton;   total cost per ton,  $20.10.  "The average receipts for the ore already vended (1438 tons) were $78.75 per  ton after deducting duty, freight, treatment, incl zinc  penalty.  "With the present amount of development ancl method of working an average  output of thirty tons per day can be  obtained���that is, at the rate of 10,000  tons per annum. The annual profits  from working the mine would be $550,000  The report add: "We have no hesitation in saying that, with competent  management, even if the present method  of working be continued, the mine is  worth $1,000,000."  The report of the board of directors  of the New Zealand Minerals Company,  Ltd, made at the annual meeting of the  shareholders m London recently, states  in connection with that company's interest in the Enterprise mine, that it  is owner of -13.4 Pei' eent of the property,  which, it adds, "is a very valuable asset."'  The company's interest in the Whitewater Mine? Ltd.,   is  also  stated in the  report, and is given at  company.  Supt. Holden paid  mineral vein is yet known.    It bears N  30,. E and S 30 W (magnetic) and. hades 13 percent, of the total  to the southeast at an angle of about 75  degrees with the horizon. The footwall  rock is mainly granite containing numerous large crystals of felspar. The  hanging-wall rock is also granite, but  much finer grained than that on the  foot-wall and much more micaceous.  The vein is clearly ou the line of the dislocation, as shown  by  the  dissimilaritv  rather more than  capital  of  the  brief visit to the  Enterprise on Thursday.

The ores  occurring in the vein are argentiferous  galena and blend in about equal quantities mixed irregularly with quart- in the  ratio of about one of the metallic mineral to two of quart-. Including quartz  the vein varies in thickness from 1 inch  to IS inches. Exclusive of quartz, the  galena and blende form together a rib  which has an average thickness of 3  inches in No. 2 tunnel, 3 95 inches in No.  4, and 2 inches in No. 5. No. 1 tunnel  has only been driven 24 feet. It is on  the vein from the start, the average  width of the ore being 1 3 inches.  "To the 5th of November, 1898, about  ���2000 tons of ore had been taised, and  1438 tons shipped from the mine. The  average metallic yield of the first shipment (1054 tons) of this ore, as deducted  from the smelter returns, was: Silver,  177.3 ozs. per ton; lead, 21.97 percent. ;  zinc. 21.04 per cent.

This is an age of trusts and strikes.  Capital is massing its strength on one  hand and labor on tlie other. , Without one the other cannot exist. Capital, if allowed, would lower the rate  of wages until the workingman would  be no better than a slave. Labor, if  allowed, would, raise th.. rate of  wages until every moneyed man  would become a pauper. Neither  condition of affairs is desirable.  Some men, through their brains,  luck, skill and cunning, amass wealth  and hire, labor. The.reward of their  merit is wealth and power. Other  men, through a lack of luck, brains  or cunning have to work. The reward of their labor is an existence  without much individual power.  The lowering of wages is often  caused, indirectly, by the laborer  himself. He wishes to get higher  pay for his work but desires to buy  everything he consumes at the lowest  price. Low prices mean low wages.  In this province wages are higher  than in ony other part of Canada, yet  thousands of dollars are sent monthly  to department stores in the east for  goods. In order to compete with  these stores western merchants will  have to combine, buy in larger quantities and cheapen the wages of their  help. That is the way it works. Try  to get everything cheap and you  eventually become   the same  way.  At one time we paid the highest  wages in Canada to printers, and demanded good prices for our work  We found plenty of people who, to  save a dollar would patronize some  scab office where the proprietor lived  on wind and paid his hands in promises. That is one reason for strikes.  Each particular kind of labor wants a  high price ��>r its own work, but by  demanding everything else cheap it  tears down the price of the labor of  men in every other occupation.  Marcus Daly and his associates  have sold their interests in the Anaconda mine and town to the Standard  Oil Co. for $23,000,000. Part of the  earth is still left, although the Standard will probably get it in due time.  They have never been able to secure  an option on the sun, although Old  Sol is the most powerful opposition  this great company lias to contend  with.  ing, for the splendid mineral areas in  the neighborho./d of New Denver,  around Nelson and other points, together with the very rich gold properties in the Rossland district, present a field unequalled in any part of  the world.;'  This from a man so prominently  associated with the B. A. C, and one  who is in touch with tbe investing  public of London, is of great significance. It gives color to the report  that a company similar in magnitude  to the corporation operating in Rossland is to be formed to operate in and  about New Denver. Should this  be the case, and the promising mines  close by are taken over and worked,  it will mean as much to New Denver  as the operations.of the B. A. C. in  Rossland mean to that camp.  The god ofthe people on tie American continent is'money- Whenever  a dollar is in sight tln.y will worship  it. This is decidedly wrong. All we  need is just work enough to keep us  ( healthy, plenty to eat, good clothes,  I a warm house and a few dollars for  the printer. Outside of creature comforts we really need nothing else.  Death raps at all our doors in due  time, and makes the millionaire the  same size as the tramp, and at the  big bank across the great divide a  commercial rating on this earth cut  no figure. Our rating there is just  as good as John D. Rockateller, and  we never owned a million dollars  since we first cried for titty.  Joe Martin touched the edges of  the Slocan last week, but did not  wander into the centre of it. Prob  ably he was told in Nelson that he  would need a gun to travel in these  parts. Fighting Joe would have  needed nothing of the kind. If  necessary he could have borrowed  our bulldog lor the trip and his safety  would have been assurred. To pass  us by in our hour of trouble shows a  lack of time, kindness or courage.  The eight-hour law has had the  effect of causing us to work longer  shifts than we have been accustomed  to of late years. The wolf has been  howling around our front door in  search of material substance, and we  presume will continue to do so until  we fill him full of silver dollars.  While the miners of the Slocan  will not work unless they get $3.50  for eight hours, the trackmen on a  great eastern railway would be  happy it they could get $1.25 for ten  hours' work. It all depends where  you liye and what you are at.  rules of society and is not considered  good form. Poker and other financial games are not permitted in pub-:  lie, which is a sad blow to the rubber  neck family. If a young man speaks  above a whisper in a saloon, plays  cent ante, or paints the town just a  little bit red, and it is tound out, he is  instantly tabooed by society, and  misery becomes his companion. The  girls cut him dead, every door is  closed against him, and if he cannot  stand the strain by the use ot Scotch  and soda his life becomes like a  broken white check, and he either  g-oes over the dump of oblivion or  comes west to some camp where to be  drunk and dressed up is considered a  sign of respectability and progressive  ideas.  The Cyprians of Toronto have a  hard time. Not many years ago  palatial mansions filled with soiled  doves were to be found in the heart  of the city and many streets had  piano ends. Now the moral wave  has changed everything. The social  evil is no longer hived as it is in  Nelson and other western towns, but  it is scattered all over the city in  small lots. The police are ever on  the alert to arrest women who are not  living according to the rules of morality, and in consequence their life is  one continual game of hide and seek.  Prostitution is probably the worst profession a woman can lollow. Our social life and laws are responsible for  it, and until some great change takes  place in this world the scarlet woman  will be found. They are martyrs to  passion without the beneficial influence of love and affiliation. While  women of this class are chased from  post to pillar in th. east, in many of  the towns of the west they have considerable influence, and by some are  considered a necessary evil.  I left Toronto with some regrets  and a valise loaded to the aperture  with a conglomerate mass of various  articles. The G. T. R. runs a train  to North Bay where connection is  made with the C. P. R. It is a reasonably fast train and before many  hours we stopped at Graven hurst for  supper. For 30 cents I filled my in  ternal anatomy with one of the best  railroad meals I have ever located.  The man who runs that restaurant  deserves praise. He has a conscience.  I may never see him again, but I  hope the Lord will bless him.  WHAT   SMALL   WAGES   MEAN.

One does not need a prophet's eye  to see in the near future great possibilities for New Denver.    Ail of the  camps  of  the, Slocan   have   much  brighter prospects today than a year  ago, but particularly bright are those  of New Denver,   where,   within  15  minutes' or an   hour's  walk of the  town, several strikes have lately been  made that  have attracted attention  from all quarters.   The properties on j  Silver  mountain    surrounding    the  Mountain Chief have ore enough upon them to send out thousands of tons  per month if properly worked.     The j  same may be said of the lake shore  properties   around the  Fidelity and  Bosun, and also those on Goat mountain surrounding the Mollie Hughes.  Tlie past  year's development work]  has done wonders with the properties!  in this vicinity, and all that is neces \  sary to make them  heavy producers j  is to get big moneyed  companies in- j  terested in them.    This is being done i  and, if we are  not greatly mistaken, i  this summer will  see manv of them i  sold to large English companies.    Al-;  ready the Fidelity  has   been  taken  up, and that other capital  is looking  this way for  investment   is evident  from the words of Hon. C. IT. Mackintosh, who,   in   an   interview  shortly  after his return to Rossland from England, said when  questioned as to the  reported formation of another large  company to operate in British Columbia:    "You must excuse me if I am  reticent on that point; in  fact. I  am  not at liberty to go into any particulars.    That   another   large  corporation will be formed goes without say-  A Western Editor's experience in. the Cent Bell.  Toronto is a city with several  ledges of morality running through  it. It is dotted all over with churches,  charitable institutions and policemen.  On Sunday its industrial and mercantile workings are like the present Slocan mines. Nothing but the  gospel mills run openly that day.  Most of them work two shifts, and al-  ! most every brand of religion on earth  is dispensed to the multitude. The  collection box has the deal all d ly  and the rake-off is immense. If Christ  dropped into Toronto some beautiful  Sabbath day lie might be inclined to  think that his teachings of the early  days were still popular. And so they  are with a certain percentage of the  population. But, how few, compared  with those who go to church merely  because it is fashionable, or they  wish to appear religious in order that  the graft they work during the week  will be stronger and more handsome.  Religion, properly taken, is one of  the best things on this mundane  sphere. Some take too much, and  others not enough. Too much will  drive you crazy. Not enough will  probably cause something else to  make you insane. A stranger might  think he was in Death Valley if he'  was not posted in reference to the  liquor laws on Sunday in Toronto.  At 7 p m. on Saturday night every  gin mill has to stop selling boozerino  until Monday morning. They all do  it���on the surface. I have heard it  stated that one or two men, a few]  years ago. succeeded in getting a i  jolt on that day but I cannot vouch j  for it from observation. The law  seems to be harsh, but it no doubt  enables many of the inhabitants to  sober up in time for church. If a pilgrim from the west carrying the last  days of a jag with him was to strike  the camp in the shank of* the evening  on Saturday he would find himself in  a fix, and might have company before the boozerino became in evidence.  Toronto is a little under restraint.  A man cannot ride a mule in that  camp into a saloon and fire his gun  at the bartender.    It is against the  Practically the sole benefit which accrues to this province through the development of its mines is the business  created by the men employed. Mining  property, for taxation purposes, is treated differently from all other classes of  property. It virtuallly pays no taxes  unless it is producing a revenue. It is  in the iate of wages paid to miners employed that the province receives any  benefit. If the men are paid liberally  they spend liberally, and indirectly  values are created for the tax gatherer.  Before the recent trouble over the eight-.  hour law was precipitated there were  close upon 3000 miners employed in  Kootenay. The rate of wages was $3.50  per day. The policy of the mine, owners'  combine is to reduce the rate of wages to  $2.50 per day by the importation of  cheap miners from the east. The effect  of such a policy would be the lessening  by $3,000 per day of the purchasing  power of the miners of Kootenay. Is  this what the interest of the merchants  or the interests of the provincedemand?  ���Nelson Tribune.  Eight-Hour Law in Colorado.  Imported  Goods of rough  texture  are  season.  J. & R. D.

The Engineering*and Mining* Journal  of New York says:���The eight-hour law  which has just g-one into operation in  Colorado is producing- a great deal of  temporary disturbance in the relations  between miners and employers. Prob  ably matters will adjust themselves in  time, but there is a good deal of friction  in the process, as seems to be unad voidable in cases of this kind. Various expedients have been adopted in different  districts to meet .the new conditions.  The most generally adopted among* the  mining* companies seems to be the system of. making* an hour instead of a day  the unit of payment; but this is not at  all popular among the miners and other  workmen, who have protested in various ways. In two instances tlie differences have resulted in strikes, one at  the Durang-o Smelting* Works and the  other in the Ward District In both  places, however, the strikes will prob-  ablv be adjusted by compromises on the  rate of wages. In the Leadvillc district  the large mines are generally arranging  to work eight-hour shifts, but require  that the time shall be taken from the  time ilie miners reach the bottom of the  shaft or the face (if the drift, thus demanding* eight full hours of work, with  no time allowance for going down into  the mine or coming out or it. This plan  will probably be adopted by all the  Leadville mines. It will take some time  to settle all the questions involved, and  there will be a great deal of discussion  over details of the various arrangements; but no more strikes are anticipated.

SILVER TO BE KING  Port Arthur,���Silver' is to be. king-  again. Such is the declaration of the  Thunder Bay district, and present indications are that the predictioii will be  verified. Silver properties which up to  a year or so ago were looked upon as  useless are to-day attracting attention.  The agents' of capitalists are abroad in  the land, and while the extent of active  operations is as yet limited to a couple  of properties, there is no doubt that- actual mining- will he in progress on  manv locations before the close   of   the  erected a 10-stamp mill to treat the  poorer ore, and it has been in operation  ever since The ore is much easier to  mill, than gold-bearing quartz, and  from 45 to 46 tons of rock has been the  daily average. The cost of mining,  too, is not great, so that four-ounce ore  can be treated at a profit. The ore is  crushed and fed under the stamps in  the usual way. After leaving the batteries the pulp passes through a hydrau  lie sizer, which separates the concentrates into   three   different   degrees   of  the world iu which they lived." Canadian Pacific officials claim that no bet  ter maps are needed for teaching in the  schools of Cuba or any other country  than thoEe issued by the company.

The demonetization of silver and- its consequent fall in value was the strongest  factor in the closing down of tlie mines  about ten years ago. Then the cost of  mining was expensive. Wages were  high,' the transportation of supplies was  difficult and costly,'methods of mining  and of treating the ore were expensive,  and with the depreciation in value the  mines had to shut down. Now laborers  are plentiful and the scale of Avages  more favorable to the. employer, transportation facilties have increased, and  ore which was then relegated to waste  dump can now, with the improved  methods of treatment, be milled at a  handsome profit. With these considerations silver at (SO cents an ounce is just  as valuable to-day as at a dollar an  ounce ten years ago. Another feature  that-should not pass unnoticed is that  inining men to-day are not looking-for  bonanzas. In the old days the mine  manager sought only for the rich pockets, where the ore ran hundreds and  often thousands of ounces to the. ton  To-day all silver-bearing ore, rich and  ��� poor alike, is treated, and while the  average values are not so great, the  aggregate yield is much larger.  Silver was first discovered in the district iu 1890, and mining was carried on  until 1891, when the histamine   ceased  operations.    The mines were east, west  and south of Port Arthur.    The   Silver  Islet mine was probably the best known  of them all.    The first work  was ��� done  on it in 1870, and it was continued until  1881, when a  depth of about 1,300 had  been attained, and between three   and  four million dallars' worth of ore was  taken out.    Many other   mines    were  operated, many with great success, but  the methods employed were   not   to    a  great   extent   legitimate.   The   silver  generally   occurred    througuout     the  veins, but where the main   veins  were  joined by stringers or lesser veins there  would be pockets of immense richness,  and it was for  these   spots   that   mine  managers  hunted.    All of the poorer  ore was   mined,   but   left   untouched.  Rich bonanza ore was the   only   thing-  looked for.   and   while   vast    fortunes  were taken out, the mines were robbed  and drained so that  when the striking  of a rich body of ore   became less-  frequent there was nothing to pay for  the  intervening   stretches  of   poorer   ore,  which was thrown aside, and upon   the  discovery   of   a   pocket   depended the  payment   for   development   work.     If  the mine management had depended on  the leaner ores to keep the mine-in  operation, and   had   looked   to   the rich  pockets   to   supply   the   dividends,   it  would doubtless   have   resulted   in    a  more profitable experience   to   the   investors,    The silver-bearing rocks  are  known as the  animiki  formation,  and  the veins containing the silver are gen-  tents are secured, and the tailings run  out of the mill, while the concentrates  are run over vanners and 'collected.  The concentrates are packed in barrels,  weighing from 11 to .12 hundred pounds  each, and shipped'to the smelter. Only  the poorer ore is put tlirough the mill  All the rich ore is picked over at the  mouth of the shaft and put in barrels  for shipment. The value of each barrel  of ore will range from about 8300 and  upwards. The through rate to Omaha  is $-1.50 a ton. The charges for treatment at Omaha are S5 a ton. Allowing  the mining and milling expenses to be  S2 a ton, this makes a total cost of 81.1.50  but there will be other expenses, which  will put the cost up to, at the very outside, S14 a ton In the form of concentrates the silver will'run seven snd  eight hundred ounces to the ton, while  the picked ore will run much higher.  In many instances several thousand  ounces to the ton have been obtained.  This leaves an immense margin of profit. The charges in shipping to New  Jersey are much higher, the freight  being greatly in advance, while the  cost of treatment is given as 812 a ton;  When the boats cease running the  freight rates are higher, and it pays to  store shipments until the summer ttme  when the competition of the lake boats  makes, big reductions in the rates. It  is the intention of the management of  the West End Silver Mountain to increase the plant until they have reached  a 50-stamp capacity, the present mill  being built with space for 25 stamps.  A compressor plant will be installed,  and with it the cost of mining will be  materially reduced.  Last year an English company worked over and ran through a stamp mill  the old dump of the East End Silver  mine, and the work was accomplished  with good returns in silver, but the  company made no attempt to mine.  The Wiley Syndicate has purchased  the stamp mill, and intends to place it  on the Porcupine mine, which they are  also engaged in opening up. The property, which has been developed to a  certain extent, shows up well, and a  gang of miners are now at work running in a tunnel, >vith the expectation  of striking the vein at a distance of  about 200 feet. The stamp mill will be  transported from the East End mine as  soon as there is sufficient ore in sight  on the Porcupine, to keep it going.  Work has stopped on the Rabbit  Mountain mine, as results were not  favorable. It is understood that work  is to be resumed on the Thunder Bay  and Crescent properties.--Toronto Globe  TV--I_U__ THK DEAD MEN I.IE.

Kennan has an interesting* article  of the veins is generally northeast   and   on   the   "Regeneration   of   Cuba,"   in  southwest, although in several places  rlie veins run at rig-ht angles to this  general direction. The silver occurs  in a native state, in argentite and in  sulphides. The first is in the form of  threads and grains, while the argentite  is in the form of scales and leaf shapes.  The ore also carries blende galena, and  iron and copper' pyrites, all of which  carry values in silver. When closely  associated with the silver itself their  values are high, but their values decrease with the distance from the rich  portions of the vein. The ore has to be  smelted, and as there is no smelter in  close proximity it litis to be shipped to  the .States for treatment. It is generally sent to Newark, N. J., or to Omaha  and as more advantageous freight and  .smelting rates can be secured to the  latter point the bulk of the ore goes  there.  The first of the silver mines to be reopened was the West End Silver Mountain. ' It is owned by a company of men  living in St. Paul, Milwaukee, Chicago  and other American points, who bought  it over fen years ag-o. They sank two  shafts .OO feet apart on the same vein  to a depth of 150 feet, but before they  proceeded tiny farther the drop in silver  had occurred, and this was sufficient to  make them close down. Nothing was  done until two years ago. when a syndicate undertook to mine the property  under a royalty agreement. They  commenced work in 1S97. All the rich  stuff was packed in barrels and sent to  Omaha, and the money secured from  the shipments put into the work of the  mine.   By September, 1898,   they   had  which   incidentally is told how  thoroughly Canada is advertised abroad by  this companv.    Mr.  Kennan  describes  his visit to a Cuban school in  which he  says: "At 49 Sagarra street, for example, I  visited  with   Major   Barbour, a  private (lwellin::, where,  in  two rooms  that correspond roughly to the front  and back parlor of an  American house,  there was crowded 101 boys,   from  six  to twelve years of age,  without desks,  text-books or slates, and almost  without blackboards or suitable maps.   The  principal of this school   was an  intelligent young Cuban, named Ramon Martinez, a graduate of the  University of  Havana, who had in his  scanty library  such books as Wickersham's "Methods  of Instruction,'' Sully's  "Psychology of  Teaching,"    FrolnTs     " Education   of  Man," nearly all  of   Herbert Spencer's  works, and   tlie  educational  books  of  Currie, Sheldon and   Pitch: but  whose  whole teaching outfit, or plant, if I may  so call it, consisted of two  small blackboards: a map of   half  the  world  on a  globular projection, issued as as advertisement by the Canadian Pacific II.
