Bluemenauer people  of Spo-  kamvis another move'in New Denver's  onward   march.    This  group is situated  just below the Marion and embraces six  claims,   on   all   of   which   considerable  surface work has  been done, and ore  is  shown   up in   several  different   places.  The property has  long been considered  one of the most, promising  on the hill,  and-the purchasers  are highly  pleased  with their buy.   The price  paid for the  property is $30,000 and the bond runs for  a period of nine  months, with  30 days'  allowance for  development  work before  any money is paid; then a payment of 5  per cent, is to be made.   The  owners of  the group are all Xew Denver people,and  the proceeds  from  the sale  of the property will  be  put into the channels of  trade here and  go  towards  building up  the Queen City of the Slocan.  The parties interested in the group  are Ed. Shannon, Andrew Jacobson, J.  Goettsche, Dan and Alex. McPherson,  Thos. Avison, Joe C.Butler, and James  Campbell. The various sums to be paid  each individual run front $000 to $5,000.  according to the interests held, and aggregate $30,000, Jacobson, Goettsche,  Shannon and Avison being the heaviest  holders.  The purchasers of the property will at  once start development, work, and confidently believe that inside of a few  months they will liave a shipping mine.  Tiie property lies close to the Marion and  its location is excellent for easy opera-  dons. Winter quarters will lie erected  ;it once in the flat below the present cabin, and men'will be put to work at the  standard wage scale without regard for  die labor trouble:  The group consists of the Hartney.  August Flower. Hub and Hub, Silver  Knight. Edith and Hunter.  With every week the prospects for  New Denver grow brighter, and soon  the most sanguine expectations of the  optimist will develop into actual conditions. Silver mountain properties, of  course, lead the van, but there are  others developing* that promise quite as  big things as those of Silver mountain  ever did, and when they are brought to  the producing stage,then will this camp  leap forward as the Queen City of the  Slocan.  The highly encouraging way in which  the Marion is developing, the recent  purchase of the Merrimac, and the later  consummation of the Hartney deal,have  put new life into the white metal hill  overlooking the town,and work is being  pushed more vigorously than ever upon other promising  properties in that  ore has been taken out. The paystreak.  is continuous and is from eight to ten  inches in thickness. It is rich stuff to  look at and assays very high, carrying-  grey copper in abundance, with native  silver running through it. Recent assays give values of .28.45 in gold, 1132.7  ozs. silver and 4.8 per cent, copper perron. A shaft was sunk upon the lead  over the brow of the hill, where work  is now proceeding, by Mr. Sandiford,  and it is the intention of the owners to  push the open cut to the shaft, taking-  out the ore in course of development.  There is every reason to believe that  the Mollie Hughes will yet be a heavy-  shipper. The ore is there and all that  is necessary is to go after it. Other  openings are contemplated, and finally  a   crosscut   tunnel is   to   be driven at  vicinity.    The late  purchasers of the  greater depth to solve the mystery that  1 iivesliiifi* in  Ainsworth.  H. Stevenson, acting on behalf of a  syndicate of Walla Walla people, has  purchased Frank A. Heap's interest in  the Braden bond on the Tariff mine at  Ainsworth. Mr. Stevenson made' a  small payment upon the bond, the balance of which becomes due in October.  Mr. Stevenson, who spent many years  in the Ainsworth camp, will take  charge of the development of the Tariff.  The men who are financing the venture  are Messrs. O'Donnell, Wilson and  Thomas, who are wealthy farmers near  Walla Walla.  Whitewater Shipments.  The Marion is developing in a most  satisfactory manner and is rapidly acquiring the appearance of a mine. The  mam drift, commenced under the, management of Dave King, is in close to 100  feet, without a single break i*i the ore  chute, though it* is somewhat wavy.  The ore is now being left standing in  the drift, but- there are. two carloads  now jdled on the dump for shipment.  The first: payment on the, bond falls due  November -Ith, and present indications  .point to its being met. Manager King,  has returned from a week's visit to  Rossland, and  lie  is more enthusiastic;  than ever over New Denver's big Silver!  mountain.  During August the Whitewater mine  milled 3,S50 tons of ore, producing 128  tons of concentrates. The approximate  profit on the month's working was $3,-  750. From the smelter returns were received amounting to $8,250. The ore  milled was from the dump, and eon.se-  ijuently poor.

The c  Hartney will start work at once, and  soon they will have, a force of 15 to 25  men employed. The same company  has 10 men employed opening up the  Jeannette group, on Wilson creek, aud  they will not let, the Hartney lie. idle  any length of time.  In addition to these and many smaller  properties under development in a small  way on this mountain, there are the  Fidelity-Bosun and Mollie Hughes, properties of great importance. Mr. Sandiford will without doubt resume opera -  tions on the former, and when he does  so it will be on a most extensive scale.  He will push work on five levels and  start others, employing 75 or U. . men.  The recent find on the Fidelity has  Drought that property into more than  usual prominence, though the exact nature of the discovery was never divulged and failed to leak out until this  week It has been pretty generally  Known that a lind of great magnitude  had been made there, but it was never  known what amount, of truth there, was  iu vague rumors, since Mr Sandiford  ;;nd his men would neither deny nor al-  firni any of the stories. The find, however, was made, and it is one of the  greatest things in the Slocan. An ore  body said to be four feet across the face  was encountered in the face of an open  cut made by Messrs. Williamson,Byron  and Holtz, when they were opening up  the property. They had stopped work  a day too soon in the open cut. Had  they proceeded a foot farther they would  have come in contact with the ore. It  has been traced over a hundred feet,  and will permit of several openings being run upon it. It is estimated there  is at least 8100,000 worth of ore in sight  in this chute alone, and it can he traced  into Fidelity hill, where, if it is caught  and it still holds good, its possibilities  are unlimited.  While we are congratulating ourselves  upon so many wet ore properties close  at hand, the dry ore proposition on the  Mollie Hughes need not be forgotten.  This has of late come more into prominence and is proving to be all that the  owners have claimed for it. The, development work put upon it by the North  west Mining* Syndicate did not enhance  the value of the property to any appre-  has ever hung over this property, and  discover to what depth the rich ore  bodies go. So far they have not been  found at a greater depth than 40 or 50  feet, but the formation that seems to  cut the ore bodies at that depth has  never been passed through, and it is  not known to what extent the ore continues beneath.  Other Goat mountain properties will  be developed this fall and winter, and  New Denver may yet boast-of other dry  ore shipping properties than the Mollie.  Hughes.  TKOUIiLK    OX    TKX    MILE.  Tom Reid, one of tlie owners of the  Gatineau _ Simcoe group, Ten 'Mile, lias  had a. variety of experiences this summer. First he struck ore in the crosscut  tunnel on that property, which caused  him to execute a war dance to relieve  his feelings. Later on, a damaged fuse  came within an ace of sending him to  push clouds with the white-winged host.  And now it is bears that' are disturbing  his mental equilibrium. There are three  of them in the party and they have been  bothering Tom more or less all summer.  They visited him one night when he was  alone, and he received them with a salute of dynamite, causing them to break  the obstacle race over the Springer summit.  One night, last week he was down in  the valley, and on his return to camp in  the morning found Bruin, senior, in pos.  session of the premises, with one paw on  the ridge pole of the tent, calmly surveying the evidences of his visit. The tent  looked as if it had seen better days, while -  the grub had mysteriously disappeared,  and the pots and pans had the appearance of the Spanisn gunboats' after their  meeting with Dewey. Tom mourns the  loss'of a can lof treacle the most, for it  was the pure Canadian maple article,  made in Vancouver. Bruin was finally  induced to take his departure, but returned his call two days later.  This was trespassing upon hospitality  too far, so Tom sen: for the Ohio Rifles,  captained by Frank Wells, and, joining  forces, the two leaders sallied forth to  attack Bruin's citadel, over in the vicinity of the head of Springer creek.

The latest   trouble   to  visit  New  Denver was J. T. Wil kinson, or Wings,  as he is called by old timers.  Wings,  like a spirit of unrest,   has roamed  through    the   mountains   for   many,  years in search of victims.   He is always smiling and  perfectly fearless  in   his methods of carrying on  his  game.    He will pounce on to a likely  mark like a  hawk   after a spring-  chicken, poke him in  the  ribs, and  flood tlie ozone with oratory until the  victim digs up  in sheer desperation,  too stunned   to realize   for   several  minutes that he  has parted from  his  money and has nothing in return but  a year's subscription to the Province.  Wings has worked his graft for many  years, and still has money to blow in  on equines,  blooded  and otherwise  He is a whirlwind of rough, boisterous hilarity.    He was cured of bash-  fulness years  ago, and   his  nerve is  supreme.     The  world should  have  more men  like  Wings.    He spreads  a heap of sunshine in every community,   which   fully    recompenses   the  folks who go against his game.    He j  is all right, but  he  will  never wear j  wings on the other side of the great1  divide   if  he   does   not stop telling  stories about the count and the red,  white and blue ribbons. Come again,  Wings.     The   bull   dog   is   always  chained up when you  strike  the Lucerne of America.  Nothing is so infectious as example.���  Kingsley.

ASCA.  1^  The poem printed below has been  drifting' through the press for 15 years  without anyone claiming* it. Some of  the many writers in Kootenay may  have written it, for more than one of  them has been a rough, rider and basked in the smiles of Mexican sweethearts  down on the Rio Grande.  I want free life, I want fresh air,  I sigh for the canter after the cattle,  The crack of the whips, like shots in a  battle,  And the melee of hoofs and herns and  heads  That wars and  wrangles and scatters  and spreads,  With the green beneath and the blue  above,  And  dash,  and danger, and life, and  love���  And Lasca!  She used to ride  On a mouse gray mustang close to my  side,  With blue serape and bright bell spur,  1 laughed with joy as I looked at her.  Little she knew of books or creeds,  An "Ave Maria" sufficed for her needs.  Little she cared, save, to be hy my side,  And to  ride  with  me���and   ride,���and  ride���  From San Saba's shore to Lavaca's tide.  She was as bold as the billows that heat!  She was as  wild as the breezes that  .blow!  From her little head to her little feet  She. was swayed in her suppleness to  and fro  By each gust of passion.

I fer   eye   was   brown���a,   deep,   dark  brown���  Her hair was darker than her eye;  And something in her smile or frown,  t .tried crimson lip and instep high,  Showed  that there  ran   in  each'blue  vein  .Mixed with the milder Aztec strain,  The glorious vintage of old Spain.  She was alive in every limb  With feeling to her finger tips;  And when the sun is like a fire,  And sky one shining soft sapphire,  '  One does not drink in little sips  The air was heavy, the  night was hot!  I sat by her side, and forgot���forgot���  Forgot  the herd  that  was taking   its  rest:  Forgot that the air was*close opprest,  That the Texas  norther  comes sudden  and soon,  In the  dead  of  night,  or  the  blaze of  noon;  That, once let the herd at its breath take  fright  And   nothing   on   earth   can  stop  the  1 light:;  And woe to 'die rider, woe to the steed,  Who falls in front of the wild stampede!  Was that thundery    T rose and grasped  the cord  (>f in v swift mustang, without a word.  I sprang  to  the saddle, she clung behind.  Away, on a hot chase down the wind!

COTTON    WAS     I. 0��  'I']).  Several members of the Mine Owners'  Association,   resident  at   Nelson,   and  headed by J. Roderick  Robertson, and  H. E  Croasdaile, interviewed  Finance  Minister Cotton in that city, Thursday.

This  is  the way he  and asked that it be suspended until a  commission could be appointed to take  evidence on its effect on the mining* industry. Mr. Cotton replied that the  mine managers would be in no position  to g-ive evidence upon the eight hour  law until they worked the mines under  it. He suggested that they should give  the law a trial before they condemned  it.  The deputation advanced the economic working of the law, Mr. Cotton  replying by asking what the increase  in cost would amount to per ton upon  the ore mined. This they could not  answer. He added that since the law  came into force, reductions had been  made in the smelting charges, more  than offsetting the alleged increase of  cost of mining, which fact the deputation did not oppose. It was then urged  by the managers that the legislature  had imposed heavy charges upon the  mining industry, but the finance minister produced figures which showed that  the aggregate of the mineral tax from  all the metalliferous mines of the province did not exceed 840,000 per year.  This represented the total sum levied  upon all the metal mines of the province, and was in reality less than the  taxes paid by some of the farming districts along the Eraser-  Mr. Cotton said that the government  could not and would not repeal the  eight hour law, and rurther, that they  would see to its enforcement. Not only  would the present government uphold  the law, hut any government which  might succeed it would cio the same,  because the people of British Columbia  would not elect a legislature committed  to the repeal of the law.  OPPOSITION    M.K.TRK'K    SJiCJiDK.S.  C. \V Clifford. M.P.P. for  Cassiar. in  a   recent   interview  Times representative  ���with  a ��� Victoria  said   that if  the  sizes it up:���  I desire to make some slight reference  to the present difficulty inthe mines of  the Slocan district. This is made, necessary by the many false statements constantly being published reflecting upon  the miners in this trouble. It has been  said, and is believed by many people,  that the operators offered $3.25 to the  miners after the passage of the eight-hour  law. I take the entire responsibility of  asserting that this is altogether a mistake. The miners'association has never  been approached by the associated operators at all. Notices were posted at the  mines stating that the wages would be  $. per day after the 1st of June, actually  a few days before the enforcement of the  eight hour law. The mine operators refused to recognize the authority of the  miners' association at all, and then the  miners very properly considered themselves locked out. There was only one  operator who approached the miners at  all fairly. This was from the Slocan  Stai, an'operator .not a member of the  Mine Owners' Association, who offered  $3.25 to his men. The men refused the  offer, but allowed members of the union  to go to the mine at the manager's request and make it secure, pending a settlement of the general question. 1 desire to say, also, that when the offer was  made by the manager of the Slocan Star,  the men refusing, they requested him to  try for one month at the old rates, implying at least that they would be willing at the end of that period to discuss  the results, and at the same time give  the. miners a chance to see what they  could do in tbe shorter day.  1 consider that the policy pursued by  the operators of these closed mines has  been arbitrary, to say the least. When  we consider that the government was j  merely enforcing a law in keeping with,  the hours of labor in mines in England  and in Australia, and even in the coal  mines of this province, they ought to  have continued their business for a given  period, giving the men a chance to prove  what could be done under the new conditions, and that if the results were  proven to be seriously against them, to  meet tbe miners' union, lay their business before them, and 1 am certain the  whole question could have been settled  without, any trouble. Instead of that,  however, they foolishly thought that hy  continuing their business under the new  law that any consideration of the matter  afterwards would  be  regarded  as a reduction of wages, apart from the fact of  having any relation to  the reduction  of  hours per day.  Instead of going ahead with their business as did the mine owners of Rossland,  Slocan mine owners  have done nothing  to give the men a  fair opportunity (as I  believe from experience would be proven)  to prove that as good results could be got  from eight hours as ten.   They are wasting their energies in drafting petitions to  the government in favor of repealing the  law.   They have  made  it impossible to  get any public sympathy, and certainly  impossible  to   make  out  any good case  for the consideration   of  the question in  the legislature.    The  sooner   the better  they dispose ef the belief that il is probable the law may  be repealed.    The law  is there lo stay.    They must  settle   the  matter outside  of  that,   but   they must  iir.-t recognize the miners' association as  a responsible and constitutional body, as  worthy of n.'_anl as   their   own.     When  th -y do this fairly, their side of the case  will receive  some  consideration by   the  miners.     When we consider the position  oi lhe miners (.if this part of the province.  they are very poorly paid, indeed.  Those :  of them   who   have wives  and   families:  cannot   live  -<t   home, with   few   excep- ;  tions. and are compelled to pay one dollar a dav for bo:.rd, leaving   them in the  best paid mines   $2. .0 a day.    They arc-  not by any   means   over   well   paid, and  we are in a position to make contrasts if  necessary that would make, their propos- .  ed reductions look very mean indeed.  These mine operators must understand  that the miners of  this   province are or-   ganized for political purposes, to get pro-       A sensational   report   is  circulated   oi  tection for labor; and if we have a weal-; the tactics pursued by a  representative  resident man- j  agement oi the Wakefield Mines, when:  shown the .

"1 am an old minor," he added, "'and  i think I can do as much in eight hours  of ordinary drill work as in ten. Thc  day resolves itself naturally into three  parts, eight hours for work, eight hours  for sleep and eight hours for recreation.  Any company which is in a position to  pay S3.50 for ten hours' work can pay  the same for eight, and if they have to  close down on account of the,two hours'  difference, it is only a question of time  when they would close down anyway.

There is a somewhat curious statement  made to the effect that in the Lardeau  mines, where there is little work done  underground, the working day is generally of but eight hours.
