The Bosun boarding house is running  regularly, but with only a few boarders  Manager Sandiford does not believe in  asking his workmen to board away  from their homes,and it is optional with  all hands where they shall board.  Officer Black detected a weakness in  the Carpenter creek bridge} last week  and two men were put to work repairing the damage, which was caused by  the water undermining the cribbing.  Robt. F. Green, Kaslo.M.P.P. for the  Slocan, was hereon Monday,looking up  iiis numerous friends. Politics, he says,  are still in a muddle all over the province. He does not know who his rival  or rivals will be at the approaching  elections.  New Den verc.au boast of many things.  The first apple grown in the Slocan was  picked here from a tree planted in the  Aylwin garden, and how these gentlemen come forward with the largest  hen's c^i>;, measuring 8W> inches in circumference.  Representations should be made to  the government showing the need of  having the government b'ock fenced  and otherwise improved. The money  spent last season in cleaning it up made  a vast; improvement and a few hundred  dollars would  finish  the job.  Clarence Teasdale, one of the old-  time favorites of the town,came in from  Rossland on Monday He has considerable interests in New Denver and has  an abundant faith in his investments.  He states Geo. Wharton is in New York  and Col. Sam is looking after his stamp  mill in Georgia  Possibly no greater improvement has  been made round New Denver than that  effected on Union street by the Aylwin  Bros, and Messrs Byrnes and Strickland What has heretofore been a thick  woods has been transformed into an  ideal spot for a fruit orchard and flower  and vegetable gardens, which will be  planted this spring.  SLOCAN    MINERAL     FLOAT.  Messrs. U D. and W. Mac-Masters,  prominent mining men of Denver, Colorado, and brothers' to .1. D. MacMas-  tcrs, of Rochester, N.Y., who is largely  interested in the Hartney'"mine, have  spent several weeks in New Denver,  and during that time have inspected  several prospects with a view to buying.  Messrs. MacMasters are men of long- experience in mining and when they see  a tiling they know whether it is good  or not. They like the Hartney mine;  they believe it to be the coming shipper  of Silver mountain, and they are here  to see if they cannot get more properties like it.  Judging from what they have seen  thus far, they arc convinced that this  camp promises better opportunities for  investment. than any other in British  Columbia. The ledges are easily worked, the ore chutes are closer together  and cleaner to handle,there is less dead  work to be. done, and but little waste to  ���remove. Everything here can be opened by tunnel, and this fact,they believe,  is certain to attract capital this way  They state there is unlimited American .capital ready to come into the camp,  but it is a little backward just now owing to the unsettled, political condition  of the province However, this is not  going to stop Messrs.MacMasters; They  intend to take up several properties as  soon as they can arrange things satisfactorily, and they are particularly well  pleased with the outlook on Silver  mountain.  it means much   to   the  camp to have  such  men   as   the   Messrs. MacMasters  interested in it     They   have unlimited  capital behind them   and, what is o  greater  importance,  they   know  business.  BOUNOAUV    CltliKK    MINKS.  ltOCKLAXII    (iKOITI*     ItONOKD.  Tin*    I'';tmoiis'   Copper    Proper! ies   Taken  Over l).v the Graves People.  Operations are to be resumed on the  Winnipeg.  The ore body has been struck on the  70-level of the City of Paris.  A contract has   been   let   for develop  ment on the Mountain View.  The valuable Rockland group of three  claims, on Eight Mile creek, has been  bonded to Jay P. Graves, now operating  so largely in the Boundary cam]). The  vendors are Frank Watson and Judge  Spinks,who retain a third interest in the  group. Graves pays $75,000 for the balance, which sum goes towards development and the purchase of new machinery. In addition to this the Graves people agree to pay up all indebtedness on  the property.  Speaking of the deal some time since,  while in Spokane, Frank Watson said :  "Mr. Graves has behind him the people  who are operating the Knob Hill and  Old Ironsides, in the Boundary country,  and the California and Mascot, in the  Rossland camp. I am operating the  property on behalf of, the Graves syndicate, and it already has expended a considerable sum in development. The property I consider to be one of the largest  in Kootenay. Judge Spinks and 1 have  been developing it for the paBt four  years, and have brought it to such a  stage that there is no doubt now as to  its richness, nor as to the wonderful extent of its ore bodies.  "The croppings are over 100 feet wide.  We have done considerable surface work  on the ledge in the shape of open cuts,  short shafts and tunnels. We have run  a tunnel in 67 feet, and the vertical  depth at the face of this tunnel is 100  feet.  "The average value of the ore, according to working tests, is $17.37 to the ton.  We have got assays as high as $50. The  ore is a quartz, carrying sulphide and  native copper. The values are in the  lr j shape of 2 oz in silver, 3 per cent copper  thi'ir I itixl fi-om $10 to $15 in gold. The property has a splendid location on the side  of a mountain, so that it can be operated  to a great depth by a series of tunnels.  Judge Spinks and myself have the greatest faith in it and would not have considered any proposition which would  have compelled us to part with all of it.  It is an immense property and is as big  as anything that I have yet ?een in the  Kootenays."

CAPKLLA ORE RETURNS.  ore  Mas been  Amos Thompson and his partners recently shipped 6.7 tons of ore from the  Capella claim, on Goat Mountain. It  had been taken out during development  this past winter, i'he ore was sent to  the Trail smelter. The gross returns  were $920.03. After deducting $93.87 for  freight and treatment this leaves $826.76  for the labor of mining the ore. The returns are quite equal to those received  on the shipment made from tbiB property a year ago.  A Large Kewtird.  efforts are appreciated. With only a  few exceptions the citizens of New Denver have entered heartily into the  scheme to advertise the town, and it is  safe to say that, if it is followed up and  carried out systematically by those contributing to the undertaking, New  Denver will be far better known than  it otherwise could be made. There are  but one or two individuals who do not  appear to be able to rise above their  own egotistical spirits and cannot see  any good in anything that is not daubed with'their stick. But they are so few  and the reason of their animus so apparent, that the scheme will not suffer'in  the least by their antagonism to it.  New Denver must go ahead. Its resources are so great, and its natural  beaut}' so incomparable,that it is bound  to be the natural centre of the glorious  Slocan. It has been held hi the background long enough by inaction, and it  will push ahead now in spite of the  carping few who would make the interests of the town subservient to their individual ambition and personal gain.  There are many  institutions in  the  town that should be the pride, of its citi  zens.   The Bank of Montreal, under its  able and obligingmauagementjs every  day contributing to the advancement of  the town.    The Slocan  Hospital, an institution that is  unexcelled, has contributed a great deal  to the good name of  New Denver and the good health of the  miners   of   the   Slocan.    Its   building,  grounds,  management, and attendants  are all that  could be asked for; and, if  it  were located  ivi some localities hs  name would be a household world. The  hotel accommodations of the town are  also worthy of more energetic advertising.    As a suppiycentre the town could  be   better   known.    The   enterprising  firm of Bourne Bros.has adopted a more  energetic system of getting and holding  the trade of the camp.   They realize  the changed conditions confronting the  town and  are  reaching out after  the  business  offering, supplying  the very  best goods  the  market affords.   Other,  business institutions should do likewise  All  these points should be grasped  and made   the   most   of.

Lauvlet, L. J. Mintz and Forrest D.  Carr. They are artistes of the first  rank and are highly commended. They  will give the garden scene from Faust  as one of their numbers, which is an indication^ their quality.  A Royal Spread.  Last Friday Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Bolan-  der gave a "rusticating spread" in their  log cabin on the Adlai claim, situated  on the lake shore,a short distance below  Silverton. The table was set for 16 and  a most enjoyable event it was. Their  friends from New Denver and Silverton  were landed on the beach through the  kindness of Capt. Seaman, of the ss.  Slocan, on the down trip of the boat in  the morning, and were picked up on the  up trip at" 1.HO p.m. Though rusticating, Mrs. Bolander was prepared to  place before her guests all the delicacies  of the season and fully sustained her  reputation of getting up the best spread  in the camp.  1 /   Hand  of Hope.  made from the Florida.  parties.

KKOM  THE EDITOK'S  UI'I'KR STOPK.  The value of the ore shipped from  the Slocan last week was more than  100 times greater than that from  Rossland.   The happiest man is the legislator  who does not have to come home to  explain. He is sure of re-election.  Thev are all home in B.C.  Tom Taylor, of Trout Lake, will be  a candidate in the coining election in  the Revelstoke Riding. Tom should  make a wise legislator. He has read  this paper for many years.  The Ferguson Eagle is a warm  weekly. It shows pay ads clean  across the lead, and should enable its  energetic editor to eat turkey every  day in the week and twice on Sunday. ___   The Slocan is in need of a coroner.  When not holding inquests on the  victims of mining accidents, he might  try to find how some of the Slocan's  citizen's keep on their feet when they  are dead to the world.  In the House of Commons, at Ottawa, McMullen accused Sir Charles  Tupper of breaking all of the ten  commandments. Mac must have been  looking through keyholes. He would  shine as a jackleg editor.  Over in Kansas a parson by the  name of Sheldon ran a daily paper for  a week, in order to show people how  Christ would run a paper. The experiment was a failure, although as  an advertising scheme for the paper  and parson it was a rich lunc i. Sheldon would not insert patent medicine  ads, and in this at least we believe he  was right.  The stories that come from Cape  Nome are rich in color. Ear away  fields are generally green, but this  one seems to be yellow. One would  think from reading papers that boom  steamship lines that all a man had to  do at Cape Nome was to back a barge  against the bank and shovel the gold  aboard, after the fashion that navvies  load a work train with gravel.  as being men who did not favor our  plan. We will now make a few more  remarks on the subject.  Hermann Clever has been along  time in the Lucerne, and while he  has not grown fat he has made a fortune by selling tender beefsteaks and  mining claims. He has put part of  his money into fine buildings and is  one of the largest owners of real estate in the burg. His fine stores are  tenantless and why such an energetic  hustler as our friend Clever should  decline to help us bo.��st the town is  beyond our comprehension. It is a  free country and Hermann is at perfect liberty to stand in his own light,  if he wishes to admire the shadow.  Tom Hoben is one of our most modest, mduitrious and honorable citizens.  He always pays what  he owes and  aims to give everyone sixteen ounces  to the pound.   Tom does not like the  policy of this paper,and talks against  it when lie feels inclined.    This is his  privilege.    He was created with the  powers of speech, and   we do not see  any reason why  he should  not use  them. We touched up Tom last week  by using his own words.    It was for  his benefit.    We have  no desire to  coerce him into supporting our plan  to advance the  interests ol the town.  He, like the rest; of us, depends upon  the public for an  existence, and if it  is his wish to quietly slumber his life  away  undisturbed   by '.the bustle of  commerce we would not awaken him  for the world by advertising his business.    Our  friend   Hoben  is  a good  fellow and the world is safe from any  conflagration while he is on watch.  A.  E.   Fauquier should  not have  been  mentioned  in   the  article  last  week.    As he has scarcely any interests in New Denver, we could not expect him to support a plan for advertising the town, and, we do not understand what our reporter was thinking  about   when   he   interviewed   him.  Perhaps he judged the  man by   his  clothes and  thought  he owned the  town.    The reporter  has been  cautioned not to  make  any  more  mistakes of this kind.    Mr. Fauquier has  done a great deal of  talking against  this   paper   with   his   small society  voice, and we trust he will not forget  to send in his bill for   the ozone used  on our behalf.

There's the man with the frown,and the  man with the 6wh,  And the man of perpetual grief,  But just  make up  your mind,  that no  man of that kind,  In an "ad." has the slightest belief.

You would  hardly think so by watching his  Apollo form as it glides through our  busy streets, apparently carrying the  weight of a nation on his shirt front,  but Arnold lias one. It is editors.  Every time an editor sits anywhere  near him when he dines, he will swell  up his manly shirt front, and in a  low but audible voice he will tell his  companions how wicked and worthless editors are,   and   will  denounce  rotten,     This  The Star is one of the brightest  twinklers in the journalistic sky of  Toronto, but they should hire a new  humorist. The Khan can poetry occasionally, but when he wades out  into the sea of humor he cannot keep  his feet long enough to catch a joke  that is worth putting into the basket  of memory. The Star's imitation of  our letter from .Behind the Kopje  would read better if it hit on local  subjects.         I N 'IK I; N A I,     A I'- FA IKS.  For years we have published this  paper in New Denver. Not for one  single month in ail that time have  we received enough of local business  to pay one-half of our expenses. We  have issued a paper that has made  the town mid the Slocan famous,  while, in an indifferent way, most of  the people have looked on and wondered how we made it pay." ���The  Canadian Nt wspaper Directory gives  this paper as bei:ig the only English  humorous paper in Canada, and it is  quoted bv papers in all parts of the  English speaking world.  Thinking that it  might be advantageous to disturb the rest  of  some of  the citizens  of  this  beautiful   town  and attempt to imbue them   with the  idea of intusin�� more  enterprise into  their methods ol   doing  business, we  canvassed   various   individuals and  published a  result  ol   the   workweek.      In I he article we mentioned  the names, of  some   citizens  who declined to   assist   its   in   our  efforts to  build up the town.    In doing this we  have been accused by some of blackmailing people   into  giving   us business.      This   is   an    erroneous   idea,  probably promulgated by some blighted cuss who thinks he  can injure us.  every paper as being-  mania   breaks   out on   him almost  daily,  and   time only  seems  to  increase its virulence.     Arnold  has it  bad, and some of his  friends should  have him examined.    He is liable to  do something rash,   and   fade  away  into ethereal space.    This  would   be  a sad blow to  us      It.   is  delightful  comedy for us to listen   to the charming manner in which  Ar.iold and his  mania do up the power that rules the  world.    He does it so cute  that  we  cannot help admiring the play,  even  if he does suffer.    If we had a mania  like Arnold's we would trade it off for  something, or else get a new one.   It  is not fashionable to always have the  same mania  any  more  than  it is to  have the same  hat.      A   mania  for  work generally cures all others.

Nationalization  of   the   liquor  traffic  would abolish the treating habit at once.  Government liquor or beer would be absolutely pure and   free  from poison.    In  the government saloons  there would  lie  no attractions, such as card playing,pool  and billiard tables, games of  chance for I  the drinks, and  all, that.    There would >  lie no drunkards, no loafing, no fighting,  no political corruption, no  treating, and ;  no  adulteration.    No  stranger or drunkard could buy enough to become intox- '  icated.  Being made and   sold   at cost, no individual could  compete   with   Uncle Sam.  His   strong   arm, together   with  public  sentiment, would enforce the law.

"What are the remedies? Plainly, in  the first place, publicity. When we  know the facts concerning these corporations we can know how to tax them  justly, how to make their capitalization  honest, how to regulate them in every  way. Regulation' and control must be  vigoiously assumed by the state and  pushed forward as fast and as far as is  needful.  "The end of that control is not to break  down the hign organization of capital,  but to safeguard it from its own greed  and rapacity, to humanize it, and to  moralize it, and ultimately to socialize it.  While we are learning these primary  lessons we will be learning how to attain  the ultimate control of every monopoly  and save it from being a monopoly by  making it the creature of the people,pre-  serving the concentrated organization,  but using it not for the profit of the few  who built it up, but for the profit of the  many, who have really enriched it.''  In his address, Dr. W. H. P. Faunce,  president of the Brown University, considered four men���the man with the hoe,  the man with the pen, the man with the  purse and the man with the idea. He  said some one must do the hoeing, but  it should be done 'so that he might be  strengthened, not weakened by his toil.  Without the man with the, pen there  would be no literature, no journalism, no  poetry. The man with the purse must  be either a blessing or a blight. "The  fourth man," the speaker st.id, "who  claims our attention is the man with the  idea. The hoe, the pen and the purse  are useless unless they are combined  with the idea. Every man's work is valuable just in proportion as it is mixed  with ideas.

C,  it nmin    mum i mini 11|  The  N  anil tobacco traffic in the United States  is a sin against God and a curse to humanity, but we do think the prohibition  party is a failure. It has been proven to j  be a miserable failure a thousand times.  It will continue to be a failure just as  long as drink is manufactured and sold  at a,profit. Men go into the drink business because it offers large profits. Once  destroy the profit system and the saloon  keepers will disappear forever. The li- j "'"  cense system simply places the traffic in  the hands of a favored few to monopolize  the profit for their particular gain Did  you ever ask yourself why the saloonkeeper fits up attractive saloons ; why he  opens grand rooms, with all the attraction possibleV lie does it for profit. The  saloonkeeper takes$2 worth of drugs and  makes a barrel of whiskey and retails it  for $ 1 SO or $200. Do you see what he is  in the business for'.'  Why don't men open stores for the  sale of postage stamps? Simply because  they can't compete with' Uncle Sam.  Prohibitionists assert that intemperance is the cause of poverty. That is  where tliev have the cart before the horse.  Intemperance is caused by just two  things���poverty and the treating habit.  Miss Frances W'illard, who spent 50  years of her life in the cause of temperance, said in a speech two years before  she died, "1 have said over and over  again that intemperance made poverty..  I now say that poverty makes intemperance."  As Robert l.hite.hi'onl lias well said:  "So long as we make drudges of the people, people will drink.''  (���Jive the   people   healthy   homes, due  leisure and   amusement,   and   pure food  and drink,  and   drunkenness   will soon j  disappear.    While there are slums,while j  men have no pine   pleasure, while   they  are overworked  and   underfed   and   untaught, and   while  the  wealthy   brewer  can open poison densat every street corner it will be   useless  to preach temperance.    So long as we   maintain the present criminal system   we   must expect to  have intemperance.     People   who   have  visited   the  slum   districts of  our great  cities, do   not   wonder   at   the growth of  intemperance.    When   the    parents  are  forced into   the   factories  and   shops for  long hours,   the  children   have no care.  Millions of  them   live   in slum quarters  because rent is cheap.    The children are  surrounded by evil   of   every description  that can be slums of our great cities.    Is  it   any   wonder   that   they   acquire   the  drink habit ?    The   treating  habit   leads  thousands to become excessive drinkers.  The evils of the present liquor traliie are  numerous: M i drunkenness, il'i political  corruption, >:>} enormous cost.

The  market being in control of few hands,  prices can be. forced up, at least temporarily. Taxation beyond the dreams of  the past can be laid by private hands  upon the whole community���the entire  nation.

What the Lucerne  is to Switzerland, New Denver is to  America. The depth ol the waters of  Slocan lake is so great that the .surface  never freezes, and the temperature of  water varies but a few degrees from  summer to winter. Soundings have  been made and have proven the depth  of the lake to be from 900 to l,30u feet.  Trout, salmon, charr and other varieties of fish abound, and fishing parties  go out almost daily from New' Denver,  returning* with g'-ood catches. The  mountains and canyons surrounding-  the town are stocked with g-ameof every  description, froin the toothsome grouse  and rabbit to the stately elk and caribou. There is no limit to the sportsman's opportunities of enjoyment.  But, sublime though be the scenery;  superb its location as a residential town,  New Denver is not dependent upon its  natural beauty for its life. At its vary  door, the town has mineral wealth unlimited. Silver mountain, while yet in  its initial stage of development, promises to be one of the greatest producers  of galena ore in the 'Slocan.
