Now his business has so fattened that he  can afford a handpress,a trip to Spokane,  and an occasional glass of red lemonade.  The people in Kaslo are fond of eating.  Three of the restaurants never close  their doors, and hunger can be subdued  at any hour of day or night.  The red curtain district of Rossland is  to be shifted in the spring from Lincoln  to St. Paul street. When' it will be  shifted in Nelson has not yet been made  public.  D. W.

The new time table on the C.P.R. is  billed to go into effect on Sunday next.  Str. Slocan is to put in an appearance  also.  Living will be expensive this winter,  as all general groceries and provisions,as  well as meats, are rapidly stiffening in  price.  Mrs. John Foster and family, old-  timers in this camp, have returned from  the coast, to reside permanently in New  Denver. ..,->'���  Hiram Pascoe, a workman at; the Ruth  sawmill, had his thigh badly gashed on  Thursday, by coming in contact with the  circular saw.  The weekly assemblies of the Quadrille  Club are decidedly popular.  Last Thura  day night several   visitors were present  from Silverton. ��� .-  .   ���  J. K. Reid  and   his  son  Bob were in j  town this week.    Mr. Reid owns-23 lots  in   New  Denver.    He goes  to Montreal  for a few months.  W. XV. Clarke, of Kamloops, is a lucky  newspaper man. He has become heir to  $50,000, owing to one of his relatives losing his air in England.  David Bremner, one of the oldest and  best pioneers of the Slocan, is spending  a few months at Kilmarnock, in the land  of blend aud heather.  Fred Smyth, of the Movie Leader, is in  luck. For 70 weeks unaided and alone,  he got out that paper on an Army press.  ter. Only a watchman is in'charge, and  he will come down the hill when the  snow -fills the trail.  1'he'compressor plant for the Ivanhoe  has arrived. Work on the long tunnel  will continue all winter. Its completion  will   shorten   the   tram   by about  2.000  feet.  The Noonday, one of the promising  mines near New Denver, has shipped,  420 tons this year. The force at present  numbers about 15 men. It will be increased after the. mine buildings a incompleted.  The'edge in the face of the. runnel  being" driven nu tlie Campbell-Johnston  property close to town, has widened to  four feet. It is of a soft, talcy composition, and an occasional piece of galena-  zinc ore; is encountered.  A rich showing- of ore was, recently  uncovered on the Home Hun ground by  the owners of the Ang'lo-Saxon group.  It was traced 100 feet or more, aud the  width of the ore croppings is from three  to eight inches. The ore chute dips into the Anglo-Saxon g-round.  Ernest Mansfield, of the Joker group,  has lately returned from England. He  has lately bonded for an English company the Apex, Twin Lakes, Green  Lakes and Crescent claims, for $30,000.  Supplies are to be taken in via Ten Mile  and a dozen men put to work. He may  also have a shaft sunk on the Tread well,  a claim adjoining the1 Joker.

Eleven men were let out from the Last.  Chance on Thursday.  Sixty-six tons of ore was shipped from  Whitewater last week.     .. .-  Work has been 'resumed' on the Lamont, a claim near Kaslo.  Good time is being made on the new  buildings at the Emily Edith.  The trail to the Sunshine has been  completed and the force increased.  The Rambler will be one of the heaviest Slocan shippers this winter.  There was a dance in the Slocan hotel  on Wednesday night.  Percy Dickenson has taken a bond on  the Black Prince group. Lemon creek,  for a handsome figure.  E M. Shupe has returned from Lardo,  where has been fortunate in securing  several good prospects. He speaks very  w��ll of the mineral deposits in that vicinity.  The Skylark & Ranger is looking very  well.'-  They '..'have had a good showing-of  ore in the   upper  tunnel  for some time  and now they have tapped'the chute in  ��� the lower drift.  i  J. Jeffrey  and   F. J. Felt  went up to  -Silver-ton on Monday.    It is  understood.  ,that   Percy  Dickenson's  syndicate   has  opened negotiations for purchasing theL  .11, on   Red  Mountain, the former  men  'having inspected the claim.  The'Black Prince is looking ' most encouraging. Seven-, mgn are working  there and last Sunday they took out and  sacked 03 sacks of ore. They now have  20 tons packed down to the upper end of  the Springer'creek wagon road and Wor-  den commenced on Tuesday to team it  down.'--  . Ex^-Senator Warner   Miller and II.   F  ore which runs 21.8 ounces in silver.  The work done on the I X L, has developed a. vein containing from 18 to 22  inches of a carbonate ore. A tunnel  driven 15-feet on a solid vein has exposed this showing. This property located  near the Virginia, at the head of Eight  Mile creek, is owned by J. Johnston and  W. McCord.  E. Mansfield was in town last week  and left on Saturday for his properties  on South Kaslo creek. R. Allen has the  contract to take up 12 tons of supplies  from here to the group. Mi. Mansfield  has made the second payment on the  bond and will push the development  during the winter.  A deal has practically been closed, by  which J. Rutherford obtains a bond for  $6,000 on the Effie group, on Cariboo  creek. The terms of the deal are $1,500  cash in three months, 20 percent, in 90  days from date of first payment, and the  balance on August 1, 1900. T. ii. Davey  of Trout Lake, is acting for the vendors.  A new strike has been made near the  American, on which four claims, the  Bonanza, Bottom Dollar, Nancy Hanks,  and Morning Star have been staked.  The lead contains about two feet of an  iron ore, from which it is expected good  returns will be obtained. Theowners of  this group are Messrs. Lindgren, M.  Nelson, N. E. Lay, and J. N. Nelson.  H. H. Johnstone has been authorized  to let the contract for the 200 feet of tunnel to be run on the main vein of the  Silver Belt. The object of this driving  is to tap the junction of the lead with  ihe various rich stringers which appear  to dip towards it from both sides. This  contract will be completed by the time  the railway is ready to handle ore from  Trout Lake City.  On the Annie F. group, located on  Tenderfoot creek, and owned by Wm.  Phelan and J. C. Lynch, the tunnel is  now in 15 feet and exposes a body of  high grade gold ore. Several assays  have been made on the product of this  g'-oup, and the returns range from $25 to  $'ll in gold to the ton. Several extensions have been staked on this lead,  which is said to show up on the Canyon  creek slope of the mountain.  The Chief Mountain, a claim located  at the head of Surprise creek and owned  by XV. J. Carroll, is the latest strike. On  this property a copper lead, three feet-  wide, has been discovered. Some of the  samples from the new strike run 00 per  cent.

Beside them   is a line  of j  cigars that will please any ordinary and j  disparag-e every effort made by the  linine workers to uphold the existing"  scale of wag-es. It stops at nothing", as  the following" excerpt from its columns  of Oct. i-ith will show:  "A trip through the Slocan country is  suflicient to show anyone what the  effect of the Eight-Hour law has been.  There is hardly- a stir in any of the  Slocan towns, where a year ago all was  alive with mining" activity. Now the  mines are closed, storekeepers are  scarcely doing enough business to pay  for the fuel they burn on cool evenings,  and hotel men" have, their houses full,  but are receiving no money from their  guests> It is on the hotel "men that the  chief weight of the law has fallen.  They cannot afford to quarrel with the  men by turning them out of doors, and  are therefore carry in them along. But  the men are out of work, and consequently have no money with winch to  pay hotel bills. Ruin, therefore, stares  most of them in the face. * * '* : The  government cannot get a man who  would make even acrespectable run,  while any person could carry the constituency on behalf of the present opposition!"  This is ajl vaporous rot      The conditions here depicted as  existing in the  Slocan are so enlarged upon, so dilated  and untrue,   that   the   article  is little  short of malicious.     The people of the  Slocan are patient and long-suffering  but they are getting  heartily sick  of  having these  blue-ruin   stories thrown  into their faces and  dished   up to the  world by outside papers  that have not  the faintest idea of the true condition of  affairs, nor  any  desire  of  knowing it.  All must admit that the Slocan is not as  prosperous as it was two years ago, but  no one is complaining of the temporary  quietude.    It will   be noticed (.that  all  the calamity-crying has come from such  papers as the Nelson Miner.    The press  of the Slocan, who  are  best able to see  and note the changed conditions, have  not made any noise about it.    Simply  because the condition of affairs is not in  any way alarming, and, since the difference in., the question of wages between  the miners   and    mine owners  must be settled sooner  or later, it may  as well come now as .my time.  The blame of the situation is put "upon the 8-hour  law  by these untruthful  papers, like the Miner. They condemn  the law, and, yet, there is not one voter  in ten iu the province who would vote  against the law if the opportunity were  afforded. All admit that the S-hour  ���law is a good one, and must eventually  come in all mining- camps. The only  question has been as to the advisability  of thrusting it upon us when the mining industry is so young. But even  in this question the law is entitled to  the benefit of the doubt, because no  test has been made of it. The statement made by the Miner that the government would not be supported in this  constituency if the question came to a  vote is decidedly wrong.    Nine out  of! 'it hand, and around   Whitewater and  they could have increased  their profits  under it.   Because they  were not able  to get men, and have not been able to  up to the present time, is no fault of the  law.    If the men will  not work for less  than SB.50 a day, the lawis not to blame.  The whole matter could have been  settled months ago if the operators had  continued operations and treated with  the miners like men of business.     It is  not believed that the miners would stick  stubbornly  to  an unreasonable  wage  scale     They  are  men    of    business.  Eighty-five per cent, of them are Canadian-born, and the other 15 per cent,  liveand spend their money here.    They  are entitled to quite as much consideration by  our   lawmakers   as  wealthy"  shareholders   in   foreign   lands,    and,  whether the law was opportune or not,  the laboring men  and business men of  the   province   will   oppose   any effort  looking to its repeal. If it were repealed  now, it would have to be passed again  at a later period, and perhaps the same  trouble would have to be borne as we  have lately   experienced.     The mine  operators do not say that they cannot  work under the law, nor that they cannot afford to pay the  men S3.50 a day.  But they say they want 2,500 men at S3  and S2.50 per day.    They have wanted  this number for three months and more  but have not got them.    What has this  to do with the law:-*  It is easy to be seen  that the Slocan  mine managers are playing the cards  for the political mine managers of Nelson and neighboring districts     Let the  game go merrily on, but in the name of  justice let the calamity-yelling organ of  Nelson attend to its own business.   The  Slocan is not in need of its sympathy  and is too much of a  live  corpse to require a daily  obituary being preached.  As evidence that the Slocan is not yet  ready for burial, as the  Nelson  organ  attempts to show, the following fairly  correct list of the number of men employed on some of the Slocan properties  will suffice:   Close around New Denver  are   employed���On  the   California   10,  Marion 12, Hartney 10,  Lost  Tiger 3,  Anglo-Saxon R, Home Run 3, Bosun 10,  Cracker Jack 2.

After   I   had   re-     '"  ceived the western, touch and got as  far as St. Paul I became less innocent,  but more conversant with the mysteries of draw. I also goc the Black  Hills fever and hired out as Captain  of a bull train, and took 250'tender-  feet into Deadwood without having  one scalped by the Indians. I have  always been called Captain since  then, and I deserve it, for it was a  harder job to get those tenderfeet  into Deadwood in '76 than it was for  Dewey to put the Dons in the sump  and haul up the cage. As I said before, I was innocent in my youth and  thought all the world honest. I still  had plenty of innocence when I sat,  in a game of draw at Deadwood. In  that game I lost mv innocence and  $700. I wasn't on. Since then 1  know that a king full, ;turned by the  hand of skill can make a queen, full  look,as tired as Sandon does today.  Since then I have changed my ways,  and am always willing to give ten  cents to any man who is sick and  cannot eat without a tonic."  The Captain has left the Slocan and  we are sony for it. He never fajls  into the siimp of despair and always  has his upper stope filled, with bright  ideas. .We trust; that his earthly trajl  will run into Harpland and we,kno,*,v  that it will, for there are no people in  hades like the Captain.  N'kr,SON'S  HDNDKKI) AM)  KOCH.  The upper stopes of society in Nelson are worked with a respect for  formality that is exceedingly rich.  In order. to stay on shift in the  charmed space certain rules must.be  observed, or your name is Dreyfus.  Calls must be made on correct society  time, and then length must not exceed the code. The conversation  must le subdued and light in its  effect. If you partake of refreshments  great care must be exercised. It is  extremely vulgar to drink more: than  a bottle of Scotch at one visit. It is a  sin against culture and refinement to  say'"Vou Bet," "My Pardner" and  similar expressions. If you do, society will think that you are an old-  timer and will cut you, as the bee  dues the flower that has mislaid its  sweetness. in order to get in the  very top stupe, if you are a man, you  must wear the trousers wide, and be  able tn lisp something about Burke's  Peerage. When a call comes to a  conclusion, you must rise in the accepted form, move backwards to the  door and insinuate yourself to the  outer ozone while vou bid adieu to  your hostess in words that must not  be vulgaris' tender or mon-. than 13  ems wide. Thus it is that butterfly  souls permeate the atmosphere, 'if  Nelson, while the plcbian looks <n  and wonders if evolution will ever  need more than the naked eye to tell  codfish lrom cream.  looks after the dead and the orphans.  The people enjoy life, although most  of folks in America would enjoy death  in preference to their lot.  Lace makers in these camps, make  as high as 75 cents a- week. , Most of  the --iris aim to get married as soon  as possible. If they become maternal  before matrimonial, nothing is thought  of it in the lower strata of society.  This.is where they show some good  sense. The church is well patronized  and has a-collection box at every few  paces. The people are fondofbooz  erino but, seldom get drunk. On 40  cents a shift they cannot sustain a jag  with any degree of permanency. In  their ignorance these white slaves  think that there is no country like  Germany and will take their taxes  and medicine with a cheer for the  Fatherland.  It is a good country for miners to  stay away from, as the people have  troubles of their own. Twelve-hour  shifts, mixed with rye bread and 40  cents is a dose that no human being!  should take more than once. We  thank the Force that rules the universe that we do not have to run a  paper in Saxony. .If we d'd there  would probably.be more or .less of a  boom in the cemetery business.

In no way has the incompetency, of  the.men, imported into the Coeur d'Alene  camps to drive out the.old,union miners  been so completely demonstrated as at  the^Iorning" mine, at Mullen, says the  Idaho State Tribune. , The. Morning  company, with much reluctance, discharged.its old employees at the behe.st  of the martial law authorities and se-  snred ninety-six Missourians.

It has cost the  company nearly $50,000 to drive and  keep .up this tunnel- and with the old  miners it was a continual fighf rn keep  it open, but at no time wu?- rlienvany  serious apprehension of losing-it. -The  men which the state authorities forced  the mining company to put, on this  difficult work were unfamiliar .-with  such a proposition ami last week their  incompetency resulted in ;i cave on the  tunnel which makes it impossible ro attempt to regain the ground at least for  several years to come. Thus was one  company forced to,a loss of nearly Soi.i,-  000 by the incompetency of non-union  labor.  A    SUKXK    f>."    SAMllON.  Baaik of Mont real  Kstablislieil  1817.

THE LEDUcE, NEW DENVER, B.C., OCTOBER 12. 18y9.  Unionism     has     many  metal, during cooling,   a  large perforated iron ladle,   whereby the lead  is removed.   The granular crystals  attributes.  Among    these    may   be    mentioned  strength, balance and liberty.  ln*Kurope, where  political  divisions  are small and where territory is enviously regarded, it is found advantageous to ally the   nations   against .-each  other to maintain a fair distribution of  strength.   This is called the balance of  power. Disputes are amicably adjusted  and encroachment avoided as   a war  might mean the annihilation of one side  with  the   certain   disablement   of the  other; hence disastrous in many cases.  In the commercial   world there are  great  industrial  combines,  trusts and  monopolies.     In fact, unions prevail in  all   branches   of  Industry,    to   uphold  prices, to regulate supply and generally  to keep down costs in  order to swell  profits.    That  nearly  all  business has  undergone enormous amalgamation in  the last few years or months is manifest  by   the,  widespread  agitation   now  in  progress in the   nation   to   the south  against  such   wholesale union.   With  them it has advanced the price of. living  and economic  commodities to a degree  unheard of in recent years, it is an  .object  lesson   in lnioiiism, find  while  men may ask where, its powers-may be  stayed its own workings point out the  remedy.  It takes no great stride of imagination to perceive that if, beyond natural  reasons, the people.can be forced to pay  larger prices for a. product at the dictation of this commercial union, the artisans and laborers might also be forced  to accept a lower wage for producing it  Tlie manufacturers have shown their  strength in union. '.Their employees,  to prevent, encroachment and preserve  balance also unite, as undue preponderance of power must always threaten to  overwhelm the weaker side. But the  formation of labor unions does'not imply 'a'menace to employers. Rather is  it, the reverse, for they encourage and  promote better understanding between  the two. It is held by many that labor  cannot    successfully     resist     capital.

As the first requisite of production Ls labor, and as labor may produce  without capital, while capital could not  without labor, it is clear the latter  should have an impregnable position.  One fact, not to be' lost sight of is, capital.is simply an ���-'advancement on the  anticipation of production.  ft is the duty of all who toil for their  living to take part in union.     To be, in  sympathy   with  his,fellow men where  their combined  interests are at stake,  to learn their  views and  not  selfishly  ignore their opinions.   Some   will say,  '"I am in accord with  the movement of  labor unions; I uphold their opinions on  such and  such   subjects,   but   I   do not  wish to join tliem."    Vour good  will is  no doubt appreciated, but good will at  best   is not very   substantial  support.  Vou believe,in their  cause, yet you refuse to be one of them.     Vou would no  doubt be willing to accept any advantage tliey may gain  through their influence.    Many   may   never  have taken  this view, but it is a fact.    Where their  business, is represented and they fail to  take.part in such organization, they are  a millstone about the neck, and their  disinterestedness may, we fear, receive  a harsh  interpretation   and. lie called  shirking.     There are countless numbers of good and true men without.the  unions who are more, thoughtless than  blamable.    It is a fault,  however, that  should be remedied at the first opportunity.  Then, with unity of conclusion as a  guide, i.ever belligerant and unreason-  aisle,, yet..firm in 'maintaining justice.  uphel(l(1.fraternaily>. by all ..the, unions  throughout the world, what better  guarantee do we want of the avoidance,  of trouble and the friendly settlement  of all disputes between employed and  employer; a guarantee of good feeling  and prosperity. It may be that in the.  future, the employer may find it profitable to be more at one with his workmen: more considerate ot their welfare,  aiid even join hands in the union ol" interests���a high pinnacle in the structure  ut unionism.

The iron ladle employed  held about 100 pounds of liquid metal.  This process was discovered by H. L.  Pattinson, Newcastle, Eng. T e an  nual'production in the United Kingdom at the time referred to wa^'about  70,000 tons of lead and 725,000 ounces  of silver, from the greater part of  which the silver was extracted by  the process described, at which time  silver was profitably extracted wl en  as low as three or four ounces to the  ton, although in some ores it ran as  high as 100ounces or over,' the aver- IKR  10   ounces. !:>Ui  When lead containing silver is ex  posed at a high temperature to a cur  rent of air, the lead is converted into js]  protoxide,  and  may  be run off in a  fused state from  the. surface; whilst  the silver, which resists oxidization,  ultimately remains upon  the cupel. .

Carbonate of lead  makes the most bril  liant red lead.      Carbonate of  lead  (white lead) of commerce is obtained  by several processes   The silver containing lead,   obtained by concentration of silver by   the dipping process,  is fused in a shallow vessel,   in a re-  verberatory  furnace,   with a current  of air constantly passing over its surface; in this way the remaining lead j  is converted  into litharge,   and  the!  silver is  left in   the   metallic state  The lith  wards i  ishes lead  and superior to the ordinary lead of  commerce  which is  unfit for manv  purposes of the arts.

Leckie, against Rinaldo  McConnell, the oiiginal owner of the  property, ostensibly about some verbal  agreement for tlie purchase of the property by Leckie, but in realty to try and  going into the nickel  business tii ere. Such lactics-on the part  of the agents'.'of the Canada Copper Co.  and others lias been the curse of the district for tlie past two .or- three years.
