Percy Dickenson put 20 men to work  on Monday to complete the wagon road  from here to  Lemon creek.   This will  be of great assistance in taking supplies  up to the various  mines.    If the government could be induced now to do  their part  in  continuing the road up  Lemon creek, it would be of the utmost  benefit to those who are spending their  money and time to  open  up that very  valuable section'.    There is no question  that this section demands more attention from the provincial government in  the building of roads than  has so far  been given, airl a  larger share of the  money that has been and is being collected here from licenses and poll tax  should be invested in the camp.  The new schoolhonse is now completed. It is 24x4S feet, two stories,and  particularly well ventilated and lighted  by very large windows. The teachers  and pupils commenced work in the new  quarters Monday morning, and are delighted with their surroundings.

The enclosing country  is granite, with quartzite and a belt of  lime  spar.    The work   already  done  consists of a crosscut tunnel of 220 feet,  cutting the ledge, at a depth of 170 feet;  and a 45 foot drift on the lead.; There  are also several open cuts on the sur-  THK   LABOR    SITUATION.  Despite the assurance that was given  last week of the immediate settlement  of   the labor difficulty,   complications  have since arisen  to  prolong negotiations and make the settlement of a less  general character  than   was at first reported.    Just what, the difficulty is nobody seems to know, but there, is every  indication that  the matter will be settled .uid work resumed on the. big properties within a week.   Since the premature publication of the reported settlement, the union  members and the  mine managors have been  more reticent in  giving information  and  very  little can be learned of their doings,  though they are in  conference���or, as  they would, rather put it, "interviews"  ���almost daily.   The end is surely close  at hand,   and may  be looked for any  day.  The report is current that a conference  was held this week in Kaslo between  representatives of the Managers' Association and the Miners'Union of Sandon,  and the Kaslo Board of Trade. This  would indicate that the point at issue  between the miners and managers is  such that it connot be settled without  the assistance of a third party, and it  would seem that the Kaslo Board of  Trade is acting in the capacity of arbitrator. What was done, or what may  be the outcome of the conference, remains to be seen. There is the persistent rumor that work in the big mines  will be resumed at once.  THE M0NASMEEI  Enormous Beer Consumption.  London Home Magazine: With every  tick of the  clock, ��6 15s worth of beer  vanishes   down    the    world's   throat;  every minute ��410 worth disappears;  every hour the world  pays ��24,651 for  its beer; and every day it swallows the  yearly  income   of   3,000   middle class  families in nearly ��(->00,000 worth of the  "brown    beverage."     Stupendous   as  these figures are, especially  when we  consider that the world's beer bill for a  year amounts to ��216,000,000 sterling,  the figures which represent the quantity  consumed   are   incredible.    The   beer  which  is   consumed    throughout   the  world in a  single, year  would make a  lake tt feet deep, 3*| miles long,  and a  mile wide, or 2.139 acres in area.    In  this vast lake of beer we could easily  drown all the English speaking people  to the number of 120,000,000 throughout  the entire world, or we could in ve a  beer bath to every man,  woman and  child at the ,same; time in the  entire,  continent of America, while all the peoples of England, Scotland, Ireland and  France could find standing room on its  bed. .���  The Hired Girl.  face.

If old man McTntyre, who discovered  the Monashee mine on  the mountain of  that name, lives  a  few years more, he  will in all  probability see.a great mining camp in the district in which he labored with such indifferent success 18  years ago.    When  the  Cherry creek  placer excitement was on in 1881 2, a  prospector named  Mclntyre located a  rich quartz ledge on  Monashee mountain and staked three claims.   He interested Forbes G.Vernon in the find,  and a Huntingdon mill was placed upon  the property.   The ledges .were rich,  but the mill  would not save the gold,  and Forbes G. Vernon finally let his interest  go.     The   claims  were  crown  granted and the property has remained  idle for years, though during its operation it is said that 810,000 worth of rock  was shipped from  it.   Mclntyre is now  70 years of age, and another partner,  who   lives  in New Westminster, has  reached 75 years.   Their property: is  now said to have an immense value.  Samples taken from the most westerly  of their three claims give an average  of S10 per ton in free gold,  while the  ledge on the claims to  the east on the  Kettle river side is so rich that free gold  can be seen in almost every shot that  is put into it.  The Monashee mine   was   virtually  forgotten until three years ago, and it  was not until John B. and Harry Olds  and Harry Page, who were ranching in  Fire Valley,  made a prospecting trip  round   Monashee   mountain   and  the  headwaters of Kettle river, that anything- further was heard of the old pro.  perty.     The   Olds   party came  upon  good looking quartz; They located four  claims, and for two years worked quietly upon their development.  They were  undisturbed, and   before  the   outside  public learned much of their discovery  they had done enough work to show up  a magnificent prospect.    Through their  three claims four strong parallel ledges  run.   Their mode of prospecting- was  the sinking of a  number of shafts, the  deepest of which  is down 30 feet; and  the running of open cuts and stripping  of the ledges, which has been done for  700 feet.   The ledges have a uniform  width of about six- feet, but in one place  one of them shows to a width of 40 feet,  and another ledge  with  a width of 31  feet on the surface  widened out to 6>��  feet in 25 feet depth.   The ledges have  walls of porphyry, the ledge matter being brittle quartz, carrying gold values  of from $10 to' $63, and sampling it is  said to tun $40 to the ton.  Curiosity as to the value'of the Olds  property drew-Robert Shiell and other  Nelson-men into :the district last spring.  The Shiell brothers staked easterly and  westerly extensions of the Olds group,  but   have   done   nothing   but   surface  work   so   far.    Following them David  Whiteley, or Red Paddy as he is better  known, staked his celebrated group' of  prospects on Monashee mountain, from  which, with practically no'.work' done  upon them, some of the   richest gold  samples seen in  Kootenay have been  taken.   On the same mountain George-  Doyle and Fred Williamson have located claims, from  which  big surface assays have been  made.    Last  week R.  Madden, Mickey Monaghan and   Mike  O'Brien staked eight other claims in the  neighborhood of  Red Paddy's find, two  of them being extensions of his promising group  Robert Shiell, who   was the leader of  the latest rush   into   the  Monashee district, says that  the  district  has everything to warrant a   liberal expenditure  of money.    The section  so  far covered  is about six miles square in extent, and  all told- about   fifty   claims  have   been  staked.    The ledges appear to be uniformly strong, but in most instances  it  is necessary  to  gv.t   down   to the solid  quartz before  values  can  be obtained.  The Olds have been   offered substantia!  prices for their property, but they decline to sell.    They   will   be   the only  claim holders  in  the district to  work  this winter, but upon the result of their  work will in a great  measure depend  other operations  in  the spring-.    They  are now running' a  crosscut tunnel  to  tap the four parallel ledges.   They cut  the first ledge in 14 feet, but at practically no depth, and have 400 feet to run.  to reach the farthest ledge, upon which  they will have a depth of 200 feet.  The best way into the district is byway of Vernon, if supplies are to be taken in, as the Cherry creek wagon road  runs within five miles of the camp; but  for men going in light, the camp can be  made by a 30-mile ride over the trail up'  Fire Vallev.���Tribune.-  FROM   THK   DEVIL'S   .TESTBOOK.  ladv  tyrannous  them a  Beside the sewing table, chained and  bent, .

LOW WAGES AND IMMORALITY  When we think of the thousands of  dollars that are being sent from the  mining camps of Kootenay every  week for. clothing* that ought to be  purchased of the home merchant, we  are forced to admit that something is j Doctors prescribe it  That  Cough  BovelTs  Syrup  will succumb to  MUCH    ADO    ABOUT    NOTHING.  It is somewhat strange that the  mine managers and the officers of the  Sandon Miners' Union should have  raised such a rumpus over the published report that a settlement had  been reached in the labor trouble.  ,.The worst that might be said of it is  that the report was somewhat premature. It was based upon good  foundation, and at the time of publication it looked reasonably certain  that the matter was closed. If subsequent complications have come up  to change the condition of affairs, it  will only be temporary. Both sides  are in the right frame of mind to amicably settle the difficulty." A settlement must be made, and will be  made, des.pite._the. positive statements  to the contrary made by a few mine  manager's valets.  A lesson should be learned from  this premature publication of facts  relating to what was supposed to be a  secret matter. The members ot the  Miner's Union should treat with more  consideration and secrecy any matter  of business coming from the managers  and not make public talk of such  matters. It is difficult to repair  broken confidence. A matter was  never so near settled but what a slip  of the tongue might upset it. On the  other hand, if the mine managers are  really seeking a settlement, thev  will not be deterred by the premature publication ol their plans.  radically wrong, either with the peo- j You try it  25c & 50c bottles  IF    IT    HAD    BRAINS.  The labor trouble of the Slocan has  developed some very  nasty  traits of  human character.   The man who pats  the miner on the back and at the same  time pleads the cause of the men who  are attempting to reduce wages is one  of them.   The man who secretly opposes the very men of whom he hopes  to win favor is another.     The  man  who hangs on to the ragged edge of  the mine  owners' circle and jumps  when the boss pulls the string is another.    But all these are angels from  the holiest realms of paradise as compared  with   the individual  who   is  responsible for this,  from  the  local  columns" of the Nelson Miner:  "The Miners' Union of New Den veils curiously and wonderfully made  up. Appearing on the register as  "miners" are Geo. M. Davis, who  make s a living as a violin player;  Julius Wolf, who is and has been a  nurse at the hospital; C. Nesbitt, who  is a painter by trade, and runs a fruit  6tore; T. Lloyd, a steamboat deckhand; John McDonald, a well known  teamster; Walter Smith, a street  laborer, and seyeral others^whora no  person would ever suspect of being  miners. If the Miners' Unions of  other camps are similarly constituted  the miners have a real grievance to  remedy."  It is not for the defense of the boys  of the local union that we give attention to this article. All of those mentioned were considered good enough  miners to draw $3.50 a day before  the lock-out, and the managers would  be glad to get them to work in the  mines now if thev would accept $3  a shift. It evidently hurts the Miner's  shallow-pated informant to see that  the boys are able to turn their hand  to other work while the lockout, is on.  But aside from the local significance  of the article, which is really very  small when the men assailed . re  known, is the sickenin-r spectacle of a  depraved intellectual sap-head inveigling* an outside paper into an  attempt to bring iynomy upon the  names of men who were citizens of  the Slocan before the Nelson Miner  or its informant were in the country.  If the Miner had any brains it would  not be so foolish.  THK    MILK    IN    THE    COCOANUT.  According to the modern way of  looking at it���through money-bags--  there is ample cause for the South  African war. In 1898 South Africa  produced $80,000,000 in gold. Since  and including 1887 to and including  1898 the mines of South  Africa have  pie or the home merchant. Perhaps  both are at fault. One because of  necessity and the other through a  lack of knowledge and foresight, or  a desire to win big profits. However  this may be, the difficulty could be  remedied if the question were given  proper attention by both parties.  All must admit that it is a pernicious  principle. It drains a town of all its  ready cash, local enterprises are  ignored and business becomes stagnant. The money that is sent out is  lost to the community. It goes to en  rich the white slave drivers of the  East. They know nothing of the  welfare of this toivn'or that, and care  less. They do not have to contribute  to the pubiic enterprises, do not help  to improve the town, do not care who  the needy be. Their demand is cash  before delivery, cash all along the  line. That's business. But where  would the average family be if the  local merchant were to adopt thi;  rule?  There is another view of the question  that ought to be considered. It is  told by Kit in the Toronto Mail and  Empire: "It is so easy to talk platitudes when you've had a good dinner  and. sit comfortably clothed and warm  in your snug room. But think of  youth and fresh girlhood fading day  after day in the dim precincts of factory and sweatshop; think of every  hope slowly dying, ot the want and  despair and pinching out of the  meagre gray days. And side by  side with this terrible existence place  the temptations that always come to  poor youth, and to poor girlhood.  How many of us who are better off  would keep to the straight and narrow path were we in a like case,  while the broad highway on which  lie the pleasures and luxuries of life  shines so near. But on that way lies  sin! Well, when the heart and  brain are dulled to apathy, the conscience is not apt to be very sensitive.  When want of decent food, of clothing,  and heat, and the common necessities  assail one, when honest toil will not  bring honest wage, it takes a very  strong soul to keep on that narrow,  grim way. And we are only human.  A great and terrible account will be  laid at the doors of the masters in  trade when the summing up times  come for us all. The traffic of the  factories and sweat shops is as much  a trafficking in flesh and blood as  ever was that of the slave trade.  There is not one of these despairing  or reckless girls who goes down to  utter destruction and ruin after an  unavailing attempt to earn a decent  livelihood by the work of her hands  but will have to be accounted for by  those in whose hands the power lay  to help her." .

An illustration of this singular trait  in the human family was had at the  exhibitions lately given in all the  towns of any importance in W.est  Kootenay by a fakir styling himself  the "Great Australian Salesman "  His average nightly clean-up is .$150.  To do this all he needs is a public j  hall, a hatful of tin knives and brass  watches, and a dozen or more human  suckers sprinkled in his audiences.  At the commencement of his exhibition he tells his audience that he does  not sell anything of value, and never  gives back any money paid to him.  Then, to start the fun he auctions off'  his tin goods for small sums, giving  back to his purchasers their money  with the goods bought. When he  i- satisfied with the number of suckers  he has on the f.tring he begins to pull  them in. He sells cigars for $10,  half-smoked cigars for $5, a piece of  white string for 810, and a piece of  scrap-paper for $5. And thus it goes.

THE   VAtUE    OF     A   COPPER   UNIT.  Many of our mining exchanges are  elucidating the question of copper  values and explaining how to quickly  arrive at the value of ores, the assay  of which show a certain per cent,  copper.   They figure it thus:  "The unit of weight is 20 pounds  avoirdupois. It is 1 percent, of copper in the ore and 1 per Cent, of a  ton, 2,000,pounds, is twenty pounds.  Each per cent, of copper contained in  the ore is equal to as many units.  Ore carrying 50 per cent, of copper  (or 50 units), if copper, for example,  is quoted at $4 per 100 pounds, is  worth 60 cents per unit, and fifty  times sixty equals $30 a ton. For  each decline or rise of 5 cents in the  quotation a deduction or addition of 1  per cent, should. be made. If the  quotation is $3.95 then 1 cent from  the price (GO cents) shall be taken,  making 59 cents the settlement price,  and so on down to whatever the quotation may be. If the pre is quoted,  for example, at $3.75, 5 cents trom 60  leaves 55 cents per unit, and ore  carrying 50 per cent, of copper would  amount to 50x55 equalling in value  $27.50 per ton."  Taking up these statements the  Spokane journal "Mining" adds this  correction: "It is true that the so-  called unit is twenty pounds avoirdupois, etc., but as to values, that.is  another matter, and when copper is  worth $4 per 100 pounds, it is worth  80 cents (not 60 cents) per unit for a  unit is .one-fifth part of 100 pounds  and the value one-fifth of $4 is 80  cents. The same calculation will  produce proper results to the whole  problem elucidated in the question so  carefully but unfortunately erroneously worked out "  KPIGKASrS    HY    A    NOVKLIST,  The arrogance of those who hare  all that they desire is insupportable.
