Nelson had on displav this  week the prettiest lot of ehinawareever  shown in New Denver. The ladios  greatly enjoyed the sensation.  At the coming election voters can  cast their ballots in any part of the  riding in which they are registered, but  not in any part of the constituency.  On Tuesday, Oct. 28, J. T.

If there is a barrel in town that has  not parted with its hoops it is because  ���the children haven't found it, and not  because of any desire to adhere to ancient customs.

The Valparaiso Mining Company last  week closed a deal with Aug. Short and  Henry Stoflins for the Sunset, a claim  adjoining the Valparaiso, situated on  Goat river. Ten thousand cash was  the price paid, together with 200,000  sharcs'of Valparaiso stock.  The accounts in connection with the  small pox scare at Sandon last spring,  aggregating $800, have been paid by  the government.

Three quarters of a mile of  the road is built, and a very creditable  piece of work it is, but some difficult  rock work is ahead and progress will  be slower. It is not at all probable the  ��3,000 grant of the government will be  sufficient to complete, the work.  Last week the postoffice at Grand  Forks was robbed of two registered  packages of bank bills valued at S3000.  It was a simple matter, as, like most of  the po.stollices in this section, the office  was neit provided with a safe, anel the  packages were kept in a frail elrawer.  from which they were easily taken.

Thus far this year the shipments have  reached 3700 tons, of which amount the  mines of Four Mile have shipped 895  tons. It can be seen from this that new  shippers are fast entering the list. When  the Four Mile properties resume shipments as they are preparing to do the  tonnage will be greatly increased.  A    LITTLK    LOWKIl    THAN  ANt-KLS,  THK  freedom.

Forty tons of ore was shipped by the  Arlington last, week, making 700 tons  since shipments began some months  ag'o.  The. bunk houses and cabins on the  Valpariso mine on Goat creek, Ains-  worth division, were completed this  week.  The experts sent from England to examine the Wakefield, inspected the  property last week. Upon their report  will depend the disposition of the mine.  Thos. Munn, a miner employed in a  Movie mine, was instantly killed last  Friday by being buried under a mass  of ore, which burst from a weakened  chute.  The Bondholder made a shipment of  20 tons last week. Eight men are employed on the property. The ore gave  a net return of $2,4.00, averaging- 218  ounces silver per ton.  Geo. Clark and Jack Chisholm have  secured a contract to drive a 75-foot  tunnel on the Philadelphia, a property  situated on Fennel creek. They started  work this week. Two parallel veins  have been exposed on the property.  A call has been made by Wm. T.

According to the Toronto correspondent of the "Financial.News," there ia  some agitation going on in British Col-  umbia just now for an imposition of  duty on lead products that will give  adequate encouragement to the working of some of the richest deposits in  that Province. Lead products hare  been admitted into Canada at so low a  duty that the British Columbia lead  mines are at a hopeless disadvantage  compared with the protection afforded  other minerals which are being devel-  ope.d in the Dominion  Immense deposits of lead in British  Columbia have been scarcely touched  yet. and a source of great mineral  wealth is awaiting development in that  connection. Not a few of the lead deposits are held by British capitalists,  and on some options have been pur  chased in the past. When the politicians  and capitalists join hands, and succeeel  in getting some protection for the lead  mining industry, a rich harvest, it is  claimed, will be reaped.  People interested declare a great deal  of British capital could be secured for  the development of the lead deposits in  the Slocan District if the Government  could be prevailed upon to impose the  desired duty on lead products. It is  believed that before long a change such  as desired will'be made in the tariff,  and that the owners of the properties in  the Slocan will be able to profitably  develop their properties.

Probably  when   George was gagging  for a  drink  while inarching  across  the  burning sands of Africa this  same  parson was offering up prayers for  his   safety,   praying with all  the  power in his theological   soul   that  George would cut  the  red  hearts  out of the Boers,   without getting  pricked   himself.      George  should  remember this and split the pot.  About the   De!perate f  cum stances often  oCOtCll      require desperate  remedies.    Over on Hooker  creek  the other day a party  of mining-  men ran out of mountain dew.  The  situation   was   deplorable.    Along  came a cheery boniface from Kaslo  on   a   hunting   expedition.     Concealed  in a  pack   on  his  faithful  horse was a bottle  of Scotch   over  whose sealed aperture 20 summers  had   flown.    This  is the  kind  of  elixir that  well   taken  will  bring  visions of paradise  to your  upper  stope.    How to get an introduction  to this delicious fluid was the question.    The Kaslo man was on   the  defensive.    He only had one bottle  and was a long distance from home.  But brains will tell even in a pinch  like this.     Bill, one of the  mining  engineers, determined   to   make  ai  <-. is quite a large atom  rUmpkin just now in the gullible eyes of the great American  voter. He made quite a splurge  with his rough riders by thumping  a few demoralized Spaniards in  Cuba, then came home and fanned  himself with glory,while for money  he wrote a book in which Teddy is  the main guy. Now his mitt is  stretched out to grasp the second  greatest ollice in the gift of the  nation. Verily, this pretty man  has a large shoot of gall in his upper  stope.  Teddy is the man who  maligned  the memory of  Thomas  -Paine  by  publishing  lies  about   that   great  man which he could not verify,and  although given   every   opportunity  to do so he still refuses to crawfish  or dig up authority  for  his  statements.    In his own book he glories  in the fact that in Cuba he shot a  Spaniard when the poor fellow was  running away from him.    What a  nice geyser Teddy is for vice-president ?    A man who would lie about  a dead man, and then boast that lie  shot a man in the back, must be a  human ass or devil, entirely devoid  of the tender and honorable feelings  that are inseparable from the character of a gentleman.    It is just  possible that he may be elected, yet  what   a   miscarriage   of   right'   it  would be to allow such   an  animal  to sit in the second  lookout  chair  of the nation.  He believes  in  and  talks  war.  He   would   delight  in   seeing the  green face of nature splashed with  the red blood of millions, provided  he could save his own cuticle,   and  have the ignorant public fall down  on their knees and shout "Great is  Teddy !"    He would wade in other  men's blood, shoot soldiers in   the  back, laugh at the weeping widow,  exalt   in   the   cries   of   orphaned  children, and smile at the  ruin  of  nations, provided, of course, Tedd}T  was in it (without wounds) somewhere.    All men who love war are  looking for the above.    Teddy,   if  possible, would be a Napoleon, but  his brain pan does not hold enough  of  the  matter  that   is   gray,     in  opposition to Teddy's insatiate desire for gore I  quote   what a  few  men of brains and  soul  have  said  upon the subject.  Channing  said :��� "Away,   then,  There were no need of arsenals or forts.  The warrior's liMirie would be a name abhorred,  And evi'i-y nation that should lilt a-j-aiu  Its hand ajjaiiist ii brother, on its forehend  Would wear lorevemioi-i! the cuisc of Cain.  Plato, the -greatest of Grecian  thinkers and writers, adds his  clear-cut lines to this portrayal.  Enumerating the different kinds of  blasphemy, he says:  "The third kind of blasphemy is  that of men attempting to propitiate the gods toward criminal conduct, as slaughters and outrages  upon justice, by prayers, thanksgivings and sacrifices���thus making  those pure beings the accomplices  of their'crimes by sharing with  them a small portion of the spoil,  as the wolves do with the dogs."  Let the last touches be given to  this picture by the first of Greek  poets, Homer, who, in tlie ninth  book of the Iliad, says, in the most  intense lines:  Cursed is the man. and void of law an-i rijdit,  Unworthy property, unworthy lierhl.

Men   who  have never  been  in  a  mine  will  often hire themselves out as  able  miners.    Over  at Granite  Mountain, in Montana,   some time ago  the  mine  was besieged   with   all  sorts and kinds of men looking  for  work.    One of them, a sheep herder, was given a job to drive single-  handed in the breast of  a tunnel.  Behind him a few feet was an   old  miner   commencing   an    upraise.  Turning to  the  miner   he   asked  what  he  should  do.    The   miner  kindly showed the herder  how   to  hold the drill, and told him to keep  pounding.    Along about  shooting-  time he had  driven  a  hole about  four inches deep.    The miner loaded his hole in the upraise, and   the  herder remarked that being out  of  practice he would like a. little assistance and advice.    The miner gave  him a half a stick of powder  with  instructions to shove the fuse  into  the powder,  then   tamp  it  in   the  hole, and let the  fuse  hang down  the face of the tunnel with the cap  on the end of it.    Then he was instructed to stand back a few paces,  close to a manhole leading to  the  lower  levels,   a.nd  throw  country  rock until he hit the cap  and  exploded the shot.    The  miner  did  not lire his shot in the upraise, but  slipped below and put the  boss  on  to the new man,   who  was  just  a.  little out  of  practice.    When   the  boss stepped up the ladder he founel  that the herder had warmed up   to  his   Avork   so   much   that   he   had  taken off his shirt and was pitching  rocks at the breast like a man suffering from hard work.    The superintendent   said,   ������ Hello,    partner.

The boss, not having any sympathy  Avith ne>v inventions for firing  holes, discharged the herder, and  he is probably still somewhere in  Montana complaining that a good  miner when a little out of practice  has no shoAV in Montana.

GIVE    ME    YOUR    HAND.  [Grace Harlin in Womankind.]  I hadn'.i'.-seen their baby yet,  Anel 1 didn't care to pei:  For Andrew anel me were at daggers' p ints���  We'd quarreled about alio^.  It was the most rielic'lous thing,  Anel neither one wa 'n 't right:  But he was a perfect mule, and I  Just; wouldn't give in a mite.  And s;i it went on, from -week to week,  Til! bimeby'twas a year;  And ihe way we'd twisted and turned to keep  From speakin' was ruther queer.    _  We used to fro through each other's helds,  A-drawin' coal or lime;  And now 'twas kind o' tormentin work  To go round every time.  I was determined to stick it out,  And gloried in my pluck;  But 1 dieln 't seem to have that year  My usual run of luck;  The cattle died with a new disease.  And the hugs got into the wheat;  I swear, it conies ruther tough on a man  When he can't raise enough to eat!  Andrew he had his losses too;  Of course it wa'n't my fault:  But we kind o' suspected each other, you know  Of throwin' pisened salt.  And all 'bout what?   Jest nothin' at all;  I could jiuii eh myself for a fool;  But. thev say when the elevil gets into a man  A'oil needn't send hiin to school.  Huldy was ail the sister I hud,  Anel I loved her hearty enough  (Senne love, like gold, is refined away,  But the jiiiiest. is on the rough).

I forbid my Sue to go, even then;  Hut "t wa'n't. of no consequence,  For I ketched her time and time agen  A-climbin' their medeler fence.   '  1 don't know why I didn't storm,  But I wouldn't pretend to see;,  Although I was nleel in the inner man.  And she know'd it as well as inc.  Time passed on, anel I heard her say  The child was amazin' cute.  -Any smarter 'n others"' I thought;  But I kept confounded mute.  I wa'n't to be trapped in that sort o' way,  Ami 1 buckled my wrath up tight;  And, woman-like, she understood,  ,  And kind o' sijrhcd at the sight.  From that vcrr time���I can't explain���-  But a feel in' got hold o' me  (if I'd seen the same in a woman, I said  'Twas pure curiosity),  A desperate longin' to see that, child.  It bothered me in my sleep;  And, at last, I'll be blamed if I didn't go there  e)n the sly, anel risk lakin' a peep.  Andrew had gone, anil Huldy was out  At w irk in her dairy yet;  Ami 1 tijitoed as meaii as a etog,  And lifted the skeeter net.  It lay wilh its sweet, hands on its breast���  Mv!

I trembled all over; you see I forgot  That a man must be strong and brave;  And 1 thought of the one that years ago  1 had followed away to her grave;  And while I was thinking it opeueei its eyes,  And reached out its arms and smiled;  Ami I hugged it close, for I verily b'lieved  'Twas my own little angel child.

The Truckee River Electric Power  Company has announced that the plant  is completed and the wires for transmission of power to the mines on the  Comstock Lode have been connected at  both ends.  Whatever may be eatel concerning  the future of the mines of the great  lode, its past is a wonderful history.  The following1 notes are collated from  the memoirs of the late Melville At-  wood in the writer's possession:  In 1857 ii!. Allen Groslrand Hosea B.  Grosh, sons of Rev. A. B. Grosh, a  Unitarian clergyman of Philadelphia,  were working on the Comstock. From  the testimony of many old miners who  knew them, they were men of considerable scientific attainments, being chemists, assayers and metallurgists. They  went over into the mining region now  known as the Comstock lode from Mud  .Springs, El Dorado County, Cab, in that  year and continued to" prospect for  nearly a year. They came across a  young man named McLoud and took  him along with them. He was a Canadian, about 20 years of age, and had  crossed the plains with some Mormon  emigrants.  The Mormons, who were the early  settlers of Nevada, wanted McLoud to  remain with them, but he was unable,  to stomach their religion, and so cast  his fortunes Avith the. miners.  ihe Grosh brothers occupied the  cabin along with young McLoud, and  Comstock, after whom the ledge was  named, was a frequent visitor to their  little home  By this time there was considerable  mining done about Mount Davidson,  but it was all gold. The black sul-  phurets, so rich in silver, were regarded  as of no value and thrown away. In  fact, the presence of these sulphurets  was 'regarded everywhere with disfavor  bv the miners.  There is no authentic record of any  assay made by the. Grosh brothers, but  they hael the necessary appliances for  the work, and must have made the  assay, for in the fall ol' 1.8.r>7 they tolel  Comstock-that they knew of rich silver  mines in the vicinity, and were going  back to Philadelphia to secure*, capital  to weirk thi'iu.  They asked Comstock to remain at  their cabin during the winte-.r with McLoud, who hail been engaged by them  to cut wooel, etc, , until they returned.  At that time there was considerable  stunted cedar in Lhe. vicinity, anel this,  with the sagebrush, was used for fuel.  It would be of great interest for the  world to know the history of the first  silver assay inaele by the Grosh brothers.  What it amounted to they kept to themselves. The testimony of McLoud is  interesting on this point.  Alter he reached Last Chance, Avith  his feet frozen from exposure, he stateel  to Bill Lee, the storekeeper there, that  he hael come over the mountains with  one of the Grosh brothers and that they  had endureel horrible sufferings em the  way.  McLoud stateel to Lee that he saw  the Groshes "pour some of the silver  ore in a glass after pounding it in a pot  and wetting it, and that after that they  got very much excited."  The assay thus described by McLoud  is unquestionably the first assay ever  made of the silver deposits of the Comstock.  What a subject this scene would have  made for a painter's brush���the interior  of a miner's cabin at night, the faces of  the two fortune-seekers lit by the ruddy  glow of the cupel furnace as they eagerly  lielel up the; glass where the silver  bottom hael dissolved in the acid solution.  On the result of that, assay the future  of thousands hung Out of that assay  sprang the millionaires of the Coast,  blocks of the finest buildings which now  adorn San Francisco, the great enterprises that have made Nevada and  California famous, and along v.ith it a  landslide* of misery and bankruptcy  that has carried thousands to the loot  of the hill to be covered with the debris  of shame and oblivion. Out of the little  glass came a giant more powerful and  relentless than the awful shape that  sprang from the pan in the Arabian  story, and this giant still lives to make  and unmake the destinies of thousands  The men who made the assay are  both dead. The grave of one is in  California and the other in Nevada, and  neither themselves nor their elescend-  ants ever realized a dollar from their,  discovery which added to the world's  wealth over three hundred millions of  dollars and saved the American Union  in the civil war.  The Grosh brothers seemed to fully  realize the importance of the discovery  they hael made, for they began to make  plans for going back to Philadelphia to  interest capitalists there to invest in  their find.  They at once staked off several claims  but there being no mining district there  at the time, of course they coulel not  have recorded them. They tolel Coin-  stock, who combined with them, what  their intentions were, and. where the  find was located.  While preparations were being made  for the, departure of the Grosh brothers,  Hosea, while prospecting, ran a pick in  his foot, and the result was lockjaw  from which he died on the 2nd of September. His grare was marked by a  feAV boulders, but on June 27, 1865,  Hon. Schuyler Colfax, avIio was en route  for California over land, participated in  the erection of a marble slab over the  grave. About 200 people took part in  the ceremony.  Allen .Grosh died the following winter  from exposure in a siioav storm while in  company with McLoud, who was prostrated anel narrowly escaped death and  the records in Grosh's possession were  lost, having-, been deposited by the tAvo  freezing men in the hollow of a fallen  tree.  In the spring Comstock learned that  Allen Grosh was dead, and concluded  to take iielvantage of the knowleelge  then acquired.  The partner of Grosh claimed afterward that Comstock ransacked the cabin  for papers and data, and was thus enabled to relocate the ledge. It is not  probable, however, that such Avas the  case, as the Grosh brothers did not trust  him Avith anything, nor was it likely  that they left anytliing in the cabin that  would benefit him. After they left he  probabh went over the ground where  he hael seen them prospecting and  located the likeliest places.  Melville At wood made the first assay  of ore taken from the lode on July 13,  1859, after Comstock had disposed of a  great deal of ground Avhich he claimed,  at ridiculously low prices. Mr.Atwood  found theoresubmitted to him to contain $875 in gold and $75 in silyer to the  ton.  After the result of the assay was made  public there Avas a Avild rush to the  Modern El Dorado and since that time  the Comstock mines have produced  nearly $400,000,000.  The following named mines produced  the principal portion of this amount.

In addition to this there has been millions of dollars worth of bullions extracted which has not been publicly  accounted lor.  The Iirst shipment of ore from the  Comstock Lode yielded at the rate of  ?L9,000 per ton." This Avas from the  Ophir discovery. A shipment of 38  tons to San Francisco, which Avas reduced by Joseph Mosheimer in 1860,  yielded ��112,000. Contract made with  "the company installing the electric  plant, power up to 5,000 H. P. Avill be  furnished to the mines of the Lode at a  maximum cost of S8.00 per H.P.  As the cost of poAver in the past has  been from $25 to $35 per H. P. the immense reduction in the cost, of energy  with which to turn the machinery of  the lode can be appreciated. By the  use of this cheap power and modern  pumps the loAver levels of the lode can  be drained at about one-twelfth of the  cost otherwise, and immense deposits of  low grade ore,which are known to exist  can be taken out and worked.  The Gould and Curry Mining Company has blocked out about 200,000 tons  of low grade ore on the upper levels of  their mine and is now erecting a modern  mill where modern machinery will be  installed. This mill is iioav ready for  the electric poAver. The machinery  placed in this mill in all of a kind which  has been tested on rock from the Gould  and Curry Mine, and is known to work  successfully. TIip capacity of the mill  now being erecteel is about 50 tons per  day, the crushers being the same is  those used on the celebrated Kinkead  Mills which have proved so efficient in  working the Consolidated California  and Virginia ore.    The Savage  Mine,  which is immediately south of the Gould  anel Curry, is said to contain in places  five tons of low grade ore compared  with where the Gould and Curry hae  one. A south drift run from the Gould  and Curry Mine has been taken up by  the Savage Company and will be driven  through their ground As the chances  are more than favorable for the opening  of a large body of Ioav grade ore in this  ground there is a possibility of the  Savage Company also putting up a mill.  In al! the mines preparatory Avork is  being done for the purpose, of utilizing  the cheap power when delivereel. At  the main shafts the machinery is being  changed and when ail the improvements  are made and the mines carrying low  grade ore are reducing their outputs at  their own mills, there will be a change  in the situation at Virginia Citv and  Gold Hill. ���  After all is said about the past g'lories  of the Comstock, it may be stated that  the opinion of an authority like John  W. Mackey, to the effect that the mines  are practically worked out, must be  placed on the scales when considering  their future.prospects.���'Frisco Mining-  Review.

'    AINSWORTH    DIVISION.  Couriesy and g-ood feelings prevail  more in China among- the common  people than in any other nation in  the world. The people are naturally  reserved, earnest and good-natured.  Drunkards are not seen on the crowded streets. The children are docile,  thoughtful, painstaking- and perser-  veringv Commonly speaking", the  nation is enslaved to routine and  tradition. .Passive resistance is more  relied upon to overcome difficulties  than personal energy and daring.  No other nation has fewer warlike  songs or more enthusiastic encomiums  of* peace. The family group is solidified in China as it is nowhere else in  the world. Filial piety is the foundation of Chinese society. The "five  immutable laws" are the relations of  father and children, of King and sub-  jeets, of man and' wife, of age and  youth, of friend and friend.
