Washiiiirron State, and close up to  the Canadian boundary The principal  places in the neighborhood are, Molson,  C'hesaw and Bolster, which are within  a few miles of the boundary line, and  they are most easily reached by the  Canadian Pacific Railway's new Boundary Creek extension to Midway, the  distance from that point being only 19  miles to Bolster, 20A to Chesaw and 23��  to Molson by a good wagon road. In  the past difficulty has been experienced  in getting shipments of freight to those  parts owing to lack of Customs facilities, but this will now be completely  overcome as the United States Government has just assigned a Customs  officer to Midway to facilitate the transfer cf American freight to those points.  utilization of this dump in order t0 keep; ^  the mill running in the meantime. 1 am ) V^  writing this to-day in order to supply  the explanation which wi-i probably be  required when the cable report of the  month's work reaches you, showing  little or no profit on this : south's working.

Ernest Mansfield has made the fourth  payment to Bert Pearson on the Green  Lake, fraction.  It is expected that the Ivanhoe mill  will commence to grind about the first  of next month.  Work closed at Camp Mansfield last  week, and the men came down the hill  on Tuesday for a settlement.  The wagon road from Silverton to the  1 lowett is nearly completed. This mine  will soon be a steady shipper.  F. Sherey has leased the Black Prince  for a year. A new,tunnel has been  started and ore will lie shipped as it is  taken out.  The. Philadelphia, on Fennel! creek,  is to be worked this winter with A. D.  Coplen as superintendent. It has been  bonded to eastern speculators.  Last week the Payne shipped 220  tons: Last Chance, 100; Slocan Star, 60;  Ruth. 52; Coin, 15. For the week ending Oct. 7, the Whitewater shipped 152  tons.  When completed the big smoke stack  at the Trail smelter will be 175 feet  high. This will be a respectable and  practicable monument to the. mineral  industry of Kootenay.  The St. Eug-ene has shipped another  Fowler is  perfectly satisfied with the condition  and prospects of the mine, although in  its present state there must be occasional  months of little or no profit. Is seems  to me that it might well be considered  by the board whether & system of quarterly returns should not be substituted  for the monthly ones. The latter practice is really unfair to the mine, as leading shareholders to form unfavorable  impressions, from time to time, when a  month occurs which yields no profit,  whereas the absence of profit in any  particular month may be only an incident effected b,y the process of development, and may not have any damaging  bearing on the general condition of the  mine'" The secretary adds that, in  view of the strong recommendations of  Mr. Alexander, the directors have decided, for the present at all events, to  publish quarterly returns.  rs-j  **i  A  Cynical  Chinaman   Tells   What   Has'  the Recent Trouble in the Orient,  Caused  sssaassss as as aassgs&gssisgssss  SUDBUKY     COPPKK-NICKEt.    MINKS.  A correspondent writing for the Engineer & Mining Journal, says of the  Sudbury district: "The Sudbury copper-nickel district is not getting the attention it deserves in the mining press  of either Canada or the United States.  Of course readers know of the Canadian-  Orford Company, but that is all. With  the advent of several other companies,  notably the Mond (English), the Great  Lakes (Boston andDuluth), the Fischer-  Neumann (Chicago), and the Nickel  Copper (Hamilton and United States),  all of which have optioned and purchased large tracts of mineral lands,  this section is becoming more generally  known.  "The Canadiau-Orford people are  opening several new mines on the lands  purchased by S. J. Rilchie, for the company, back in the eighties. Of these  the Clara Bell is said to be quite promising, while the Frood and Lady McDonald are somewhat doubtful. This  company is also erecting buildings for a  complete refining plant at Copper Cliff,  their smelting site and town. They now  have six stacks in commission smelting  about 800 tons of ore and turning out  about 100 tons of copper-nickel matte  per day.  The Mond Company is at work opening its mines in Denison township, and  erecting a smelting and Bessemerizing  plant at Victoria station on the Canadian Pacific Railway about 22 miles  west of Sudbury.

The sarcastic  Chinaman goes on to say:  '"It is said that the Americans spend  annually $200,000,000 in propitiating  their gods and devils. I do not hesitate  to say that the Chinese are able to do  the same thing just as effectively for a  much larg-er population for less than  half this sum. Many Roman Catholic,  cathedrals in Europe and America cost  at least ��1,000,000. None of them . is  more effective in warding off devils  than the simple little fort the Chinaman  builds at the top of his house. Inexpensive beer bottles are just as good in  keeping off devils as the largest bells  ever erected. If any doubt this, we  Chinamen ask a competitive trial.  "Various other little devices which  some ignorant and superstitious Chinamen employ will be found quite as  effective as the more elaborate and  costly paraphernalia used in Europe  and America for the same purposes.  Much sport has been made in Europe  and America of the Chinese praying-  machines in Thibet. Many years ago  it was discovered that if one wrote a  prayer and placed it in a teacup and  gave the teacup one turn it was just as  good as repeating the prayer orally.  Ten turns were equal to ten prayers.  This was also found true no matter to  what extent the apparatus was increased  in size or the number of prayers added.  So at the present time they put a  million prayers, written on thin paper,  in a large vessel mounted on a pivot.  Giving the vessel one turn registers  one million prayers, each of which is as  effective as any other prayer. If any  one doubts this we challenge him to a  competition.  ''If your  missionaries  can show us  any devices in Europe which would be  more efficacious in  keeping off devils,  or cheaper or more expedient in  propitiating the deities by  prayers  than  those that exist among our important  people to-da.y,  then and not till  then  will it be time for you to send missionaries to  China.    All  our superstitious  practices are among the Taoists  and  Buddhists.    The  learned   literary and  official classes are all  Confucians,   and  Confucius   taught   us   to   respect   our  ancestors   and   leave   the gods alone.  Confucius teaches us to have nothing to  do with any one. who pretends  to   have  intercourse with the supernatural.   We  do not believe in any angels and demons,  which is so   common   in   all   other   systems, and it has often   been   said   of   usj  j that because we, do not believe in  thc.-e !  j supernatural beings our system   is  not;  I religion at all.

Since about   all   ol   the  ands of known value.  Christian religion, and who are jealous  of others who are bringing in what they  consider a competing faith. They feel  exactly the same as the people would in  this country if the Buddhists were to  come here and attempt to supplant  Protestants and Catholics. But what  exasperates us more than anything is  the immunity which the so-called converts have from the action of law in  their own country. Suppose a Chinese  priest should come to England and it  was known that every burglar and  pickpocket by becoming a Buddhist  would become exempt from arrest; suppose the introduction of a new faith in  England should give the criminal  classes a license to ply their trade in  London with complete immunity from  the action of the laws, would the Enj?-  lish people submit to such a state of  affairs? Why, then, should we Chinese  be an exemption to the rule?  "Our civilization is the oldest in the  world. It enables more men to live to  the square mile in comfort than any  other civilization ever evolved. Before  the missionaries visited our country  there was much less crime in proportion  to the population than even in Protestant Prussia, which is regarded as the  most moral of European countries. Out-  kind of civilization may differ from that  of Europe, but it suits us better. ^We  do not care to throw it over unless  something better is produced, something really better when viewed from  our standpoint. Our religious belief is  quite as reasonable and respectable, as  those of other nations, and if age should  be considered one of the factors of respectability, our systems must be infinitely more respectable than the new  faiths, some which are only three or  four hundred years old.  "Is there any reason why we Chinese  should not be allowed to enjoy our religion in our country in our own way?  Confucius taught us that we should do  to others as we would have them do to  us, and this, I believe, has been introduced into the Christian religion and is  generally known as the Golden Rule.  Certainly the English would not like to  have us interfere with any of theii' religions or institutions. If we should  force our priests upon England we  should be doing to the English what we  would not like them to do to us. Conversely, the English in forcing their  priests upon us are doing what they  would not like others to do to .them.  Consequently, they arts not only breaking the fundamental principles of their  own faith, but of our faith also.  "It will be quite impossible to have  peace in China so long as foreign missionaries arc. allowed to interfere with  the institutions of the country, and no  government in Pekiu can be strong  enough to protect unpopular missionaries throughout mi vast an empire.  We may not be able to keep these  missionaries out of China, becau-e we.  are not a righting nation, but anything  will he, better than ihe inis>iuiiaries.  Peace, nrosperity. and healthy commerce will be impossible until the mis  sionarv is eliminated from our local  problem I.'ecall t he. nii>siiiiiari(j.- and  all will go well."

Now it is  abundant in every' locality visited by  the union army, and the line of Sher-  man \s inarch can be followed by keeping  where the daisy grows. The seed seems  to have been transported in the hay  that was brought along to feed the  horses. That is the only explanation  that has ever been given of it.  There's a story told in Georgia���  Tis in everybody's.mouth-  That 'twas old "Tecumseh" Sherman  Brought the daisy to the south.  Ne'er the little blossom-stranger  In that land was known to be  Till he marched his bluecoat columns  From Atlanta to the sea.  Everywhere, in Held and valley,  And the murm'ring pines among,  Where a gallant Union soldier  Pressed his foot, a daisy sprung;  And its coming seemed to many  Like a promise from on high,  Given them in benediction,  When "Old Glory" floated by.  Where the troopers fed their horses,  Where the''bummers" bivouacked,  Now with each recurring summer,  All that highway may be tracked  Bv the glory of the presence���  'A�� the stai'8 the sky illume���  Of a million northern daisies  In the beauty of their bloom.  Thus the kindly hand of nature  Hides the scars that war has made;  Vines entwine the shattered musket,  Blossoms wreathe the broken blade.

It is with pleasure that ��� behold the  homely face of the hog-toothed coyote  who edits the Red Gulch Red Light in  this congregation to-day. He has probably repented of having published in  his dirty scandal rag last week hii  article defamatory to the character of  myself, and is here seeking the soothing salve of salvation for his soul, ft  is well. Jesus said that even the vilest  could come. The Red Light man is  mighty near the limit, but 1 reckon he  can st;Viy and draw cards. If he helps  his hand any it won't be my fault, for 1  harbor a deep and abiding disgust for  him and his 2x4 rag of a Weekly Red  Light.  In an editorial he stated last week  that he knew me in Tucson, Arizona,  four years ago when I was dealing bank  in the Long Range Saloon. I neither  deny nor admit the truth of this statement. I have dealt bank, it is true,but  1 dealt on the square; also 1 was in  Tucson four years ago; but if the editor  of the Red Light knew me there it was  because he was engaged in the uplifting  work of deodorizing cuspidors in that  joint  1 am a patient man and slow to wrath.  I've  stood  abuse and  blasphemy and  never whimpered���all for Christ's sake.  I've  turned   the   other   cheek   to   the  smiter, when by every rule of etiquette  1 should have shoved my boot under his  coat tails.    I've bought gold bricks and  never hollered when the hour of awakening came.  I've been up against every  brace game in the catagory of the tinhorn, and  never yet  called  for  police  protection.    I've been  shanghaied and  waylaid   and  sandbagged.    I've stood  pat on four kings and bet my  roll  and  lost,  because the other   fellow   dealt.  But 1 did not reach  for my gun and  shoot him as full of holes as  a  30-mesh  screen���all    for   Christ's   sake.      I've  trodden the straight  and  narrow  path  of Christian duty and never overlooked  a bet.   But   when   a   chuckle-headed,  mattry-eyed son of a seed-wart,  who  because of the malfeasance in ofiice of  the hangman is permitted to  sling ink  on a dinky little 2x4 weekly newspaper,  undertakes   to   smut   the   immaculate  diameter   of your   Uncle Jerry,  he'd  better discard and draw to his hand, for  I shore  feels my  wrath  rising like a  batch of sour dough.  Therefore, fellow sinners,my remarks  this morning shall bejbrief. I desire to  adjourn this meeting as sudden as possible. 1 want to call your attention to a  few thoughts on the ''Power for Uood  and Evil of the Country Press," and  then dismiss the congregation. The  hog-toothed editor of��the Ked Light  looks restless over there, and as a matter of fact, I made a date with him for  I.::-'��(). back of the tabernacle, when; I  shall either save his soul or else shoot  him so frequently that he will resemble  the Human Pepper Box.  The country press, my friends, is the  ripened product of modern civilization.  It is the very foundation stone of republican liberty���the unchallanged exemplification of our God-given freedom of  speech. It is at once the moulder and  reflector of the opinions of its subscribers. It teaches as Jesus taught  where its teachings will do most good���  among the lowly, among the toilers in  the vineyard of life, among the agrarian  masses, among the men who are not  only the c'-arest to earth, but the nearest to Go'u.  But a country paper is like a monarchy. Learned men and thinkers  unite upon the proposition that a mon-  archial form of government is almost  perfect in theory. Its power for good  is endless; its possibility as a Christian-  izer is beyond compute; but���it depends  on the monarch. So in the matter of a  country paper; as an institution it is  niagnificient, it is superb; but���it depends on the editor.  There are .editors'and editors. Our  modern educational institutions���which  do not educate���breed editors as a stagnant pool breeds tadpoles. Unsuccessful professional men���briefless lawyers,  clientless doctors, pulpitless preachers  :���furnish recruits as occasion demands.  In fact, the unsuccesful in all walks of  life seem to drift into newspaper work  with a regularity astounding. .Every  long-haired law-student who takes his  diploma and hangs out his shingle and  sits and waits for clients until he is so  hungry his backbone abuts on his belly  band���goes into newspaperdom. Every  immaculate ass of a country school  teacher who discovers that his scintilat-  ing genius as an educator (its him for  broader fields of action than a district  school, drifts into the fourth estate.  In the whole motley crew that annually  recruits the ranks of the newspaper  men, there isn't enough good gray brain  matter to carry guts to a bear and get  away the basket.  Once in a while, however, there happens to be born the real thing���a man  imbued with the idea that his mission  in life is a humble one; who greases  skids in a logging camp during the  spring and fall, and bucks straw for a  threshing outfit during harvesting.until  he hoards com enough to buy a font of  phat long primer, a Washington hand-  press and a box of hickory quoins; who  heads for some obscure cow-county  town and inaugurates & weekly paper  under t he sub-heading: "Hew to the  line, let the axe hit whom it will;" who  chronicles local happenings and adjusts  international issues with the same fine  hand; who publishes a card of thanks to  Farmer Bog'gs for contributing a cord  of wood on subscription, and in the  same issue advises the. government to  "list loose the dogs of war;" who prints  an obituary on the death of Ike Sloan's  little baby girl, written in words that  ring with tears, and in the next column  looses the vials of righteous wrath  against the effete monarchies of the old  world. Finance, politics, religion, society���all these he handles without  gloves. He touches on the need of a.  new town pump, and blasts the Pharie-  sees of national politics. He prints an  estray notice of Bill Jones' bull calf,and  then unseats some European king, until  amid the hollow reverberations of his  thunderous words .you can almost hear  the sullen crash and fall of tottering  thrones and dynasties.  That is the sort of a country editor I  bank on. I play him wide open to win,  and I want the limit. For he is hoc  stuff���a man in a world of men.  But for a hatchet-faced son of a sick  hearse-horse, like the editor of the Red  Gulch Red Light, 1 have an unspeak  able contempt. He is a dirty deuce in  a new deck. Pie is a hiatus in a hole���  a hollow mockery.  In my wanderings over the face of  this earth I have met with men of many  sorts and kinds. 1 have shaken hands  with princes and potentates, with masters and mendicants, with men of high  and low degree, and have mingled with  many whom to call friends was an  honor. Out of all the bully bundi.  from soda card to hock, from Alpha to  Omaha, I remember one to shine out as  a bright, particular star; who, to my  way of reckoning, personified all this  human virtues���all the strength and  gentleness, all the dignity and tenderness, till the honor and uprightness that  man is heir to. And he was a country  editor���Jack Bludsoe, of the Yuba Dam  Yahoo.  Jack was of a type of men too few  to-day. He wore a red shirt and a  brace of six-shooters. He was feared  by the evil-hearted and loved by everyone. Yet no man in the diggings was  quicker on the trigger. He never went  gunning for trouble, but once in it,  well. Jack played the string out to the  last hitler button. He was a Godly-  man, moulded on practical lines, and  he shoveled a heap of satisfying salvation into his readers every deal. He  was compelled one day to end the flamboyant career of Red Mike Simmons,  ���'a bad man with a gun," who came  into Jack's office one day with the. intent, he stated, "to clear  out  the  hull  d d ranch and singe Ihe editor's hair  a whole lot." Jack executed as neat  and effective, a piece of shooting as it  has ever been my luck to hear of, and I  do a little of that myself now and then,  The   vigilantes,    led   bv   Jack's   onlv  enemy, the editor, of the Yuba Dam  Herald, up an 1 hung my friend, hung  him higher than Gilroy's kite. But  when the committee returned to the  Yahoo olnce they found a piece of copy  on Jack's desk, half finished, the ink  hardly dry. One of the men picked it  up and read it, and then he turned  white in the face and sneaked away,  and cut down the body of my friend and  buried it decently, and planted a rude  cross on the grave, and scrawled thereon:  : H'hRE  LIES A MAN. :  That was a long time ago, fellow sinners, but there are some incidents that  become part of the history of a man's  life. So I'll read that little piece of copy  which old Jack had written just before  the boys strung him up. I have it here.  You can see it is kinder worn and yellow, being- only paper; but my recollection of that affair is as vivid and real as  that frosty White sunshine which comes  heating in here through the window.  "A patter of little feet," Jack wrote,  "and an echo of childish laughter down  the road. Then a sunshiny little head  came peeping' in at our office door, and  a sunshiny little voice said: 'Please  Mr. Editor I've���I've brought you some  flowers;' and a bunch of cactus-blooms  were laid on our desk. Then the little  feet scampered away. Brilliant cactus-  blooms; beautiful flowers, children of  the desert, typifying the beauty of even  barren life. God bless you,child. May  all your days be as sweet as you have  made this one foi me May your little  feet never be led among the cactus  thorns.   May you���"  And this was all. Just a simp-e little  sermon, nothing' more, but it showed  Jack had a heart. It's been 30 years  since I found that bit of paper on Jack's  desk and sneaked away to ask his and  God's pardon, and to cut the rope and  bury the body of the-whitest man that  ever peeped over the hill. Yes, it was  inc. And that's why I'm mad to-day���  mad as a wet hen. For over there in  the corner sits the. one-time editor of the  Yuba Dam Herald, who led the vigilantes in that long' ago,when they hung'  Jack Bludsoe for shooting Had Mike  Simmons in self defence. And tins onetime editor of the Yuba Dam Herald is  now slinging slush on the Red Gulch  Red Light, but his days in this camp  are numbered. The. choir will now sing  "Come to Jesus," cutting out the last  stanza. After which I will pronounce  the benediction and adjourn this sitting,  but will request the hog-toothed coyote  who spoils paper for the Pan] Light to  remain after the congregation has Hied  out.

The Hand gold production has till  along' been given in crude ounces, as  the gold comes from the plates or vats.  United States gold production is. g'iven  in ounces fine,  One per cent, carbonic oxide in air is  liable to occasion death if,inhaled. Gunpowder explosion and Underground  ignition of fuel produces this gae with  insufficient ventilation.  Explosives are only comparatively  safe so long" as they are treated as dangerous. To put this into practice is to  approximately insure immunity from  accident; to neglect it is to court die  aster.  As far as known the Belgian government is the only one having an official  rule that when men are being hoisted  or lowered in a mine shaft a capable  assistant is required to stand by the  engineer to replace him in case of sudden indisposition.  It is not unlikely that resumption of  work in the South African mines will  see successful effort to put in practice  the proposition to sink to a depth of  8,000 feet. Relay winding stations*;,  electricity, the ingenuity of the American mining engineer, and the maker of  American mining machinery will furnish successful solution to the problem,  though it involve nnw questions in  ventilation, pumping and hoisting.  H��i    Was    in    No    Hurry.  A Highlander was one day brought  before his chief, being accused of  sheep stealing. The crime being  fully proved, Donald was sentenced  to be hanged. In those days a criminal was allowed to choose the tree  on which he was to be hung. Donald  was therefore asked to name the tree  of his choice.  "Oich, oich!" he said, "she would  like to be hung on a grossart (gooseberry) bush."  ' 'But a grossart bush is not half  large enough for that, "was the reply.  "Oh, oich!" answered Donald, "but  she's in nae hurry; she'll just wait  till it grows."  Apples should be eaten regularly.  They are better than pills for the  health, and John Williams has the  medicine in abundance.  The    Way    to    Do    It.  The sermon was on the downward  path of the sinner, and the clergyman used the illustration of a ship  drifting on the rocks.  A Jack Tar who had strolled in  became deeply interested.  "The waves dash over her!" exclaimed the minister. "Her sails are  split! Her yards are gone! Her  masts are shivered! Her helm is  useless! She is drifting ashore!  There is no hope! What can save  her now?"  "Let go the anchor, ye lubber!"  yelled the excited seaman.  He meant well, but they ran him  in for brawling all the same. ���London  Spare Moments.
