At the fall assizes in Nelson, in
a suit over a claim on Payne
mountain, decision was given in
favor of Ransom, Garde and Jones.
Particulars of the case are as follows:
In 1898 one Dilley located the
Parrot mineral claim on Payne
mountain, this claim being subsequently acquired by Selous and
Snyder. In 1901 G. F. Ransom
located the Belleview fraction, also
on Payne mountain, lying between
Big Timber, Emporium and other
crown granted claims, and in 1902
he applied for a certificate of improvements. Snyder and Selous in
the meantime bad surveyed what
thej' alleged to be the Parrot
ground, and also applied for a certificate of improvements.
The Parrot claim, as surveyed,
covered practically the entire Belle-
view ground, so the Parrot owners
adversed the application of Ransom, with whom Garde and Jones
had become interested. Then in
January, 1903, the Belleview was
reioTcatecrlfvW
No, 2, and by him transferred to
Ransom et al., who then adversed
the Parrot application, relying on
both the Redress and Belleview locations.
Tlie chief contention of the Random people was that the Parrot,
■••hum as surveyed was not the
same as the Parrot ground as located, and in this they were supported by the judge, who found
that the Parrot location stakes had
been removed from their original
places before the survey was mad".
The judge also held the Belleview location invalid for want of
blazing, but held that the Redress
No. 2 was a proper location, and
as this was owned by Ransom.
Garde and Jones, they got judgment, voiding the Parrot claim,
with cost?.

GOLD   UAS   DErTH.
Those individuals who talk about
gold mines not being operated to as
great depth as copper propositions
would find it instructive to study
the Congress mine, in Arizona.
The Congress has been an excellent
producer for many years, and on
the dip of the vein, the-lower workings are said to be from 3,500 to
3,600 feet below the surface. Mineralization of gold-bearing quartz
seems to have sufficient depth
there for the ordinary investor.

BmKhQUSE PHILOSOPHY
By thc Editor ^^^^^^^j^^:^:^^
Spuds.—"Say, Kaiser, phat does yez think of Chamberlain's
policy?"
Kaiser's Ghost laid down the chunk of liinbiirger he was munching, took tho cotton batting out of his nose, and remarked:
"Veil, poys, I dond know much ahotid Joe Chamberlain, but if
he can build a tariff fence in frond of everyding excepd der British
colonies, I dinks ve get em all in our sack. Der Unified State? is
der natural market fur many of our dings, but Sam he cut us all
mit der pig dooty. If ve can get der cinch on der British market
fur our veat, cheese, apples, minerals and odder dings, ve back
Uncle Sam inter der sump up tf) his neck while ve svim nvay on
der vaves of Imperinl prosperity.
"Canada must do somedings. Become independent, annex to
der States or form a combine mit England and shovel frost to der
fellars over d.»r vail. If ve could ged der I'nited States in der
game vid us, I dinks all der vorld vou Id only be dooce high. But
if dis deal of Chamberlain's goes thro, ve must expect! all der odder
fellars to play buck, vich vould make gin fizzes and odder dings
come mighty high in dis vonderful C. P. R. country. Mixtion ry
Ike las just come over der trail from Nelson and he vill dell uh der
news."
Tke hlew the foam from his air valves, and tuned his ozonagram
as follows:
"Pardners. there is hot times in Nelson. The people of that refined and cultured city «ent John Houston to Victoria, fully expecting that he would* bo handed a portfolio, bnt when I left the
l>urg John hail just got back without even a pocket liook. There in
all kinds of rumors in the air. Some think tliat July dinked John
lieeaiiM his language In sometime* more forcible than elegant.
Others aay that John did not know how to hold a drew coat at the
proper angle, or walk in a ball room without touching the lloor or
lisp sweet nonsense in French. If John is not good ciiougb to nit
in the cabinet he ia not good enough to sit in the house. His turndown is a direct insult to Nelson, and if he in an outlaw in the eyes
ot an ornamental figurehead, where does his friends get oft at? To
tell the truth, Houston is long ou brains and short on tally. If he
was an oily-tongned Ananias and a simpering. wip-headcd Judas
Iscariot, full of deceit and skimined-niilk ideas, he might hunk
with the crowd at Victoria, but he cannot crush his manhood mid

Fads in Connection
Act of Trickery
ery to a Mem
the Legislative
The turning down of John Houston, M.P.P. of Nelson City
riding, by premier McBride, under shelter of the wing of lieutenant-governor Joly, has been a live question in Nelson for a
week. Mr. Houston returned to Nelson on Sunday night. He
consulted with his friends, but refused to make any statement
for publication, after seeing how unfairly a brief statement he
had made to a Vancouver World reporter had been mangled.
He stated to his friends the reasons given ,)>y premier McBride
for his being turned down, and until McBride's statement could
be verified by thc lieutenant-governor, himself, he or they could
not do anything. On Tuesday morning Mr. Houston received
the letter from the lieutenant-governor, which is printed elsewhere, aud his friends acted promptly. His campaign committee to the number of over forty niet on Tuesday night. William
Irvine occupied the chair and stated the objpet of the meeting.
A number of speeches were made and the following resolutions
were passed unanimously: .
Resolved, that we have the fullest confidence in
John Houston, the member for Nelson City, and
we give him a free hand to act as he deems best, ,
believing he has been most unfairly treated by
the lieutenant-governor, and that premier McBride
is censurable for allowing the lieutenant-governor
to usurp his (McBride's) constitutional rights.
Further resolved, that the mayor be requested •
to call a public meeting at the opera house on
Thursday night, in order that the people of Nelson shall have an opportunity of giving expression
to their views on the action of the lieutenant-governor iu objecting to John Houston becoming a
member of the government of British Columbia.
Resolved, that  these  resolutions  be wired  to
premier McBride.
The next day a well-signed requisition was presented mayor
the governor. Before leaving he told me
to remain at his oflice until he returned.
On his rein rn, he said the governor had
intminted that he must till his cabinet;
thia lie intended doing so, aud that he
wor.ld immediately ask for the resignations of McPhillips and Goodeve. Before
closing the interview he saiiV: "I will lay
my full programme before the governor
tomorrow forenoon, and put an end to the
uncertainty that now exists."
The next day at one o'clock I called on
the premier at his office. Ho said: "I
submitted your name this morning to the
governor, and he did not approve of your
becoming a member of-the government."
I asked if he had given any reason, aud
McBride said, ' 'No.'' I then said I would
go home, resign my seat, and leave the
province, for if I was not fit, to associate
with him (McBride) I was not* fit to associate with decent men. McBride's one
concern seemed to be, what would become
of him ami his government, as my resignation would mean its defeat. He said:
"Don't resign, and at the end of the session I may be able to get yon in the government." This appeared so ridiculous a
statement that I left liis oflice, and
haven't seen McBride since.
At first 1 lelt as 1 imagine a man must
feel on being released from serving a term
iu a penitentiary. 1 felt as if 1 could not
look decent men in the face, imagining
tliey knew of my disgrace. However,
tliat* feeling did not last. I am not a
(Sliristinii. When Mnpped'on one cheek I
du not turn ihe olltci'tiibeslapped. When
•'slapped, 1 do my best to reach the other
fellow's face. I did not know whether
A" e* Bride had told mo the truth, and to
find nut 1 wrote the following letter to
tlie lieutenant-governor:
Thk DuiAisi) HoTKt..
Vktouia, October •*>:!, 11)0*5..
Sir,—Premier McBride has just informed me tliat lie submitted my name to you
this morning for member of the executive
council, and that you objected to me being
a member of his government. If it is not
asking too much, I would like to know if
I have been told the truth. If it is the
truth, then the people of the city of Nelson liave been slapped in the face, aud I
will be compelled to leave British Columbia, for if I am unworthy to administer a
department of the provincial government,
I am equally unworthy of sitting as a
member of the legislature. Tlie people of
Nelson have honored me three times by
electing me mayor, and twice by electing
me to the legislature, bnt I am ashamed
today to hold my head up on the street.
My address is Nelson, B.O.   Respectfully,
JOHN HOUSTON.
Sir Henri Joly de Lotbiniere, Victoria, B.O.
In reply the following letter was received on Tuesday last:
AT  GOVKIINMKNT HOUSK,
Victoria, October a-ith, li)0;S,
John Houston, Esq., M.P.P., Nelson, B.C.
Sir,—-I have received your letter of yesterday, inquiring if it is true that I have
objected to your being made a member of
the Hon. Mr. McBride's government. It
is true. I objected on account of the unfortunate incident of last session when
you forgot what* was duo to tlie legislative
assembly as well as to yom-self in youri-e-
.sponsible^poMtioAi; Thero was no inten-
Rose, and he in accordance with the requisition called a public
meeting for Thursday night, the notice appearing in the Nelson
Daily News. No other notice of the meeting was given and no
effort was made to bring out a crowd. On Thursday night between 400 and 500 people assembled in the opera house. Mayor
Rose called the meeting to order, and stated liis reasons for
calling the meeting. He then asked Mr. Houston, who was in
the audience, to take the platform, which he did, receiving most
hearty applause as he did so.    He said:
Mr. Mayor and Fellow-Citizens: It is
not long sjneo tho two political parties in
this province had n more or less healed
campaign for supremacy, and one of tlie
resultH of the campaign was my election
turn ropresentntivo iu tlie legislative assembly for Nelson. I believe my election
wuksomewhat of a surprise; but it must
tw conceded tliat the majority of the pen-
pio of Nelson preferred me ii > my opponent.
After the light was won, my supporters
and friends believed Nelson was fairly entitled to some of the fruits of tlu< victory

he turned in his chair and said he would
be frank with me; that I had not treated
him right in The Tribune during the campaign. Other charges and explanations
followed, and J left his oflice feeling that
Iio was distinctly hostile, I thought lirst
1 would write to premier McBride, as
Green and, I believed, other ministers
were hostile to me, that it would lie best
for the success of the government and the
party that J give way to someone else who
could work in harmony wilh all the niin-

H. G. JOLY de LOTBINIERE.
Evidently the lieutenant-governor knew
little of the (what I b'lieve to be trumped-
up) reasons he gave iin* turning me down.
Had he been posted he would not have
written as he did. Thero was no "unfortunate incident" at the last session, for
surelv even sir Henri ,'fniv will not hold
that willing Albert Edward McPhillips a
damned fool is a good reason for blackening a man's reputation for life. I may
havo called McPhillips a damned fool,
and if I did 1 came pretty near the truth.
The "unfortunate incident" to which I
believe the governor refers occurred at the
session before the hist. It was the occasion when I defied the speaker. It was
said I was drunk at the timo, That
statement is not true. I v, ill admit I may
have had four or five good-sized jolts of
Scotch, and may have been under their influence, On ihat occasion McBride, who
is now premier, was leader of the opposition and had the lloor. The speaker had repeatedly warned him to speak to the question under discussion, warnings which if
made three times required the member so
warned to take his seat. McBride, as was
usual with him, paid no heed to the warnings, and the speaker, who is a good-natured old gentli inan, let things drift. 1
raised a point of order, and after stating
it to the speaker 1 that McBride was not
speaking to the question) was told that
my point was not well taken. I took my
seiit, and iu 11 minute or two again mnde
an at tempt. 1 was again told to take my
seat by llie sponker, as iny jmtint of order
was not well taken. 1 did mi, but was on
my feet again in a few minutes, and this
time U lieu told to take my seat, i ilG".« d
the speaker, and in so doing said I was
willing to sitiiulder any odium that might
attach for my net ion; lhat 1 believed the
obstruction Indies of McBride and his
followers were hurting the province, and
and lhat he j that the speaker wasblameabh- for not en-
hi- govern- j I'oii-ing hi* own rulings, I was neither
reprimanded nora-keii to n]niligizo either
to iln-hoiiM; or in ihe speaker, so I think
the lientenaid-govcrnor hnng'-iti-mit of his
way to even refer to nu incident with
which In- had no concern. Were he to
jig up every in- mber who tnl.es too much
Scotch, the liou-e V.otlld often In-left without a quorum.

leave llie proN isiee to!Uo|ToW,
Mr, IIhiiMuii look hi* seal amid ap-
p!an*-e that could mily have one meaning,
and that   meaning.  "We,  the |»cop|e of
mier he was informed that the party owed
him recognition, and that he (the premier)
was prepared to take him into the government as one of the ministers; and
Whereas, the premier did submit Mi*.
Houston's name to the lieutenant-governor for appointment as a responsible minister; and
Whereas, tho lieutenant-governor objected to Mr. Houston becoming one of
his advisors, giving an incident that had
occurred in a legislature that has passed
out of existence as the reason for his objection ; therefore be it
Resolved, that we, the people of Nelson,
in public meeting assembled, protest
against this action of the lieutenant-governor, in denying to a representative
elected by the people a right accorded him
under constitutional government; and be
it further
Resolved, that we deplore the fact that
British Columbia has as premier a man
who allowed the lieutenant-governor to
reject his advice without resenting it by
tendering him his resignation;
Resolved, that copies of these resolutions
bo forwarded to the lieutenant-governor,
the premier, and to sir Wilfred Laurier,
premier of Canada.
The resolutions were read and on being
seconded by John II. Matheson, the mayor declared them open for discussion.
Calls wero made for S. S. Taylor, and he
took the platform. Ho said he was the
first man to congratulate Mr. Houston on
his election, and he would have congratulated him had he returned to Nelson a
member of the government. While a
member of the party opposed to the party
of which Mr. Houston is a leader, he
therefore could not agree with him in all
things. He was forced to admit that the
treatment accorded to Mr. Houston by
premier McBride was such as to prove,
that the premier was not a manly man,
but he did not believe the people of Nelson should be asked to censure that honorable gentlenum, sir Henri Joly, for the
part he had played iu the matter. The
lieutenant-governor was too honorable a
man to lend himself to an unworthy action.
Mr. Taylor's remarks were iu effect:
Condemn McBride, the Conservative, but
'spare Joly, the Liberal. Before the resolutions were put, Mr. Taylor, from his
seat in the audience, suggested that the
resolution protesting against the lieutenant governor be cut out, and the other
resolutions would then be supported by
himself and otliers.
W. A. Macdonald followed Taylor, and
before he got through he was unmercifully guyed by the audience. Macdonald
claims to be a Conservative of Conservatives ; one of the pure breed; so pure that
he at uo time can stomach anything but
straight Conservative doctrine and pap.
He criticized Houston for daring to attack
McBride, the leader of the great Conservative party, a gentleman who was not-
present to defend himself. He intimated
that it would be all right to condemn the
lieutenant-governor, but for Conservatives to censure McBride for turning
down a man like Houston was absurd. If
Houston was a Conservative he should
take his medicine and like it. Macdonald
took his seat in the audience without ro-
ceiving the applause he expected, and for

had messed something.
F. J. Deaua was called for aud he took
the plittforui. He started in by saying
that the statement made hy Mr. Houston,
if true, proved MeBride to he a dishonorable man, one unfit to be premier of the
province. He then switched and said the
people of Nelson would make a great mistake and would stultify themselves if they
passed a resolution censuring the liouten-
ant-goveruor. Deane simply showed himself a partisan entirely willing to lambaste
MeBrido by resolutions or otherwise, but
unwilling to hurt the feelings of the lieutenant-governor, who is ii Liberal, and the
audience seemed to be aware of it, for he
wns not applauded when ho retired to his
seat alongside S. S. Taylor, K. O.
John Houston was then cnlled on. He
began by saying thu meeting was not
(•ailed by partisans for party purposes. It
was ciilleilby the mayor of Nelson to take
action on ii question that concerned the
people of Nelson, and it should be so considered. The three gentlemen who had
pcrceded him had spoken not as citizens,
lidt as partisans, Two were Liberals and
they could not forget that they were of
that party faith. The other was said lo
lien Conservative, of which he had his
doubts. All three of these gentlemen
ivmilod In appear to be men of lofty
thought, so lofty lhat they did not expect
to be undersliMMl by the lowly and illiterate portion of the audience. One, S. S.
Taylor, K. ()., was a defeated Lilierul candidate, and it wax just {Missible that he
was now more lofty in thought and speech
than when, during the campaign, he was
pleading for the labor vote. He was lofty,
but he was a partisan. He would condemn Mclhide, a Ciniserviitive, but the
lieutenant-governor, who is a Lilx-ml,
should not lie held blanieable for his lofty
action in placing 11 stigma 011 a man whom
the |n*np!e of NcIhiii Imve rejicatedly honored. Mr. Housloii tiii'ii took 1111 W. A,
Mncdoiiiild, K.I!. ami no man ever got
Mich n nice ti>;wt!iig on n platform in llrit-
isli Ciilninbia. The audience fairly yelled
with delight when the sjieaker descrilM'd
the kind of a Conservative Mucdonnld
wns, nnd showed hint to lie the kind who
talked CijiiM-rvalive whin away from
Imiiii', nml it-fused to vote (.'onservativu
when at home. It is safe losay that W,
A. Mncdoiiald did not have the sympathy
of h single man in the lunlienee when
Houston got tl rough with him, even from
nun, who liki -himself talk Conservative
and cither v< te l.iU-ral or sulk when

party, I would be classed as a mere self-
seeker. No man in British Columbia is
less n self-seeker than I am. I care little
for political life aud tlie rewards that
should eome to successful politicians; but
my reputation, and that of the people who
have repeatedly shown their confidence in
me, is ns dear to me as the reputations of
McBride, Green, Tatlow, McPhillips, and
Wilson are to thorn, and, by the living
God, I will do my best to oust tbem from
leadership in the Conservative party. Iu
doing so, I will be doing the parly the
best work a man can do for a party, for if
its leaders are tricky and treacherous it
cannot be successful, or govern wisely if
successful. If the legislature meets, I
will vote with the party that elected me,
bur I will not vole in the parry to retain
in high ollice such men as Richard McBride, who has proven himself to-be lacking in the manly qualities that the premier must have if the province is to have-
stable government."
The applause thut was thundered out
wlieinMr. Houston took his seat was deafening and lasted for fully live minutes.
At this stage of fhe proceedings S. S.
Taylor, lv. C, arose and said that mayor
Hose had no authority to call a public
meeting io condemn the representative of
the king in the province. The mayor in
reply to .Mr. Taylor said: "I called this
meeting on being presented with a requisition asking that the meeting be called;
the requisition was signed by a large number of well-known citizens. My notice
calling the meeting contained no words
either censuring or condemning the lieutenant-governor, as you will see if yon
read tlie notice, Mr. Taylor. I have as
much respect for constituted authority as
any man in the audience, and I believe the
people of this city have the right to express approval or disapproval of the acts
of any olticial iu the land, be they of high
or of low degree. The wording of the resolutions before this meeting are in my
opinion most temperate; they enter a protest against the action of one official, and
deplore the action of another official.
[Applause]
a clear majority after an appeal to the
country, is receiving any such intimations, and we do not think that in onr
present governor we have a mau who
would intimate in any such fashion that
his advisers should "pack up and get out,"
as the Times so elegantly puts it, or would
base any intimation of the kind upon any
save the strictest constitutional grounds.
What tlie true inwardness of the facts iu
connection with Mr. Houston and a portfolio is we do not know. But this we do
know, that the interpretation placed upon
these facts liy the Times is false in every
particular, as we said before. This we do
know, that wo trust Mr. McBiide and
Mr. Houston to consult the welfare of,the
country and their party in everything,
and Ave equally trust* sir Henri Joly to
consult the dignity of his high office, aud
to discharge its functions judiciously and
acceptably.
The Price Was Artifical.
In his report to the United States Geological Survey on the production of copper in 11)02, Charles Kirehoff says that the
copper mining industry of the United
States suffered during l'M2 from the reaction which followed the unsuccessful attempt during lilOl to maintain the value
of the metal at- an art ilicial level. The relapse which came towards tlie close of
I HOI left many producers pledged to sales
covering a long period, at low prices, with
the menace of heavy accumulittions of
metal over the market. Yet metal productions were heavier during 15)0:2 than it-
had been in li)01, because some of the important mines were worked to full capa.
city and because some of the enlargements
and improvements previously begun became effective during the year. Furthermore a number of new enterprises produced important quantities of metal. On
the other hand accidents and labor trouble
cut down the output of some of the larger
undertakings.   Unless unforeseen events

The Political Situation.
Victoria Colonist, 27th: The Times
published an article yesterday on the political situation which was an agreeable
mixture of malice and misinformation.
It began by omitting certain quotation
marks wliich would have made clear
where what it quoted from the Colonist
ended, and where its own comment thereon began. But wo should not be inclined
to rebut the argument that this was a
mere inadvertence, and that the variation

indication of its different sources. It then
went on to give its version of what has
occurred during the last two weeks. In
the lirst place, it stated that Mr. Houston
presented an ultimatum to the government. This is absolutely untrue. It is
the interpretation put upon certain facts
for interested purposes of their own by
Liberal partizans. There is not a word of
truth in it. We were very sorry to see
from au interview published in the Province that Mr. Macdonald, the Liberal
leader, lent his name to this rumor, ft is
beneath the dignity of the leader of a
party to repeal .street gossip and dignify
it by the name of an "open secret." Auy
secret in possession of the Liberal wirepullers of Victoria would indeed be open.
This mutter of iho ultimatum is a matter of fact or llction. It is either true
or untrue. We say that it is untrue, and
we know what we are talking about,
The Lil a-rill press, and tin- Liberal leader,
have given currency lo the report.
Will they give equal eiim-ncy to the cou-
tradiction? The Times then went onto
say that after Iwo weeks Mr. Me Bride
mustered up cuiirage to ivftise a portfolio
to Mr. Houston. The Times must have
au amazingly poor opinion of Mr. Melinite if it thinks it takes the premier two
weeks to ninke up liis mind as to who
shall or shall not enter his cabinet. And ,
it must have an equally annr.'.i!igly poor cents per pound,
opinion of Mr. Houston it it thinks he
would allow himself tii U- put for two
weeks in an entirely falsi- position in his
r.-latimis with Mr. Mi-Bride or any other
man. But then, tli" Times rain d another
point, "whether (lie lit utcn.mt-governor
or his nilvi-ei's pert'on-n d the stil-merging \ js \,. Canada
ad is tin-question." "If," il goes on to
•-ay, "His Honor intimated to premier Mc-
iHde that tl"- hi ml of the Co:i.-i rvative
party iu British Columbia wus not  n lit
iu the United States will be considerably
larger in 1!)0:] than it has over been. The
Lake Superior district will yield considerably more copper; Arizona is expected to
return a considerably larger product;
Utah may reach a total of 95,000,000
pounds, and Wyoming, Nevada, Colorado,
New Mexico, and the Southern States will
report an increase.
The consumption of copper in the
United States was enormous in 1902. It
was larger also in other leading industrial
countries.
As compared with 208,783 long tons iu
li)01, the total production of copper in the
United States in 11)03 was 294,42:} long
tons, of which the Lake Superior district
prodused 70,175, or 25.9 per cent, Montana, 1:58,975 long tons, or 48.8 per cent,
and Arizona oH-,547 lo»K tons, or 18.2 per
cent. This is an increase on the total
production of 25,Oil long tons, or nearly
10 per cent, as compared with 1901.

the most important copper states, and it
is notably in tho Bingham camp that development has been most rapid.
Only small quantities of copper ore have
been shipped from Alaska to Puget Sound
smelters, but it is known that large deposits of copper ore exist, the development
of which is being seriously taken in hand.
The imports of copper ore in 1902 wore
valued at .$7,921,041, as compared wilh
$14,:)94,0<;:i in 1901, and the imports of
copper in bars, ingots, pigs and in manufactured forms were valued at £12,804,02.1,
as compared with $11,820,459 in 11)01.
The exports of domestic copper in different forms were valued at $40,811,729 in

MISCRIXANKOL'S   MIXING   NKWS.
Diamonds and minerals have
been found in the Republic of
Liberia on the west coast of Africa.
A. representative of the African Rc-
view, in the course of his inqnines
scourage is 35.5 years. The report
ascribes the disease to the inhalation of dust, and states that it is
more prevalent among rock-drillers
than any other class of worker-?. It
is essential that respirators should
be worn by these men and that
special attention be paid to the investigation of the character and
harmful porperties of the dust in
the mines, mine ventilation, gases
given off during blasting operations,
mine sanitation, and the conditions
under which the miners live. The
disease is correctly known as silicosis, and is a condition of chronic
fibrosis of the lung. The inhalation of line angular dust in the.
mine produces enormous development of the delicate, fibrous tissue
in the lungs. Thereupon bands
and patches of solid useless material
gradually encroach on the normal
breathing apparatus and interfere
seriously, and eventually fatally,
with the respiratory functions.—
African Review.
Volcanic action has in most, cases
primarily determined the configuration of the crust of the earth, but the
chief agents in the formation of
tortuous valleys have been streams
flowing above ground or below the
surface. These naturally take the
course of least resistance, dislodging tho softest soil, and thus gradually enlarge their channels and
are flanked by rising ground.
Gold mining in Virginia began
jn_1829.    The mines are   situated
sombre colors. It is true that we
have wept. But oh, this thread of
gold! Let us turn off and look
back upon its wonderous web and
when it shineth sometime we shall
know that memory is possession.—
Jean Ingleow.
In love of virtue and hatred of
vice, in the detestation of cruelty
and encouragment of gentleness
and mercy, all men who endeavor
to be acceptable to their creator in
any way, may agree. There are
more roads to heaven, I am inclined to think, than any sect believes; but there can be none, which
have not these flowers garnishing
the way.—Charles Dickens.
All civilization is but a creation,
a modification, and a re-creation of
conscience. And it is more than
strange that those who talk so loud-
Tim
Siillilnn
into this subject, called at the oflices
of the Western African Gold Concessions, which possesses extensive
rights over the Republic—over 4,-
000 square miles (or one-half) being assigned to them exclusively as
far as mining purposes are concerned, and having rights of prospecting in the remaining half.
Over the first-mentioned portion of
this territory, the rights exercised
are to all intents and purposes
those of a chartered company, and
in the course of a very interesting
conversation he had with tho managing director he learnt that from
the various expeditions sent out
during tho past year or two to this
territory numerous indications of
dianiondiferous ground have been
reported, and a number of miscellaneous stones of various kinds
gathered en route sent over. The
diuinondiferons ground, already reported by tlie expeditions, it may
lie noted, consisted of deposits of
mineralized blue clay, and was
traced along a section of country
for some '25 miles, and stated by a
prospector to be exactly similiar in
character to deposits observed during a twelve years' experience iu
Brazil. Our representative per-
sonally saw and handled specimens
of iimi'thywls rubies, corundum,
cinnabar (containing a very high
j percentage of mercury), and lignite.

C. Cohen.
What is fame to a living man?
If he lives aright the sound of no
man's voice will resound through
the aisles of his secluded life. His
life is a hallowed silence, a pool.
The loudest sounds have to thank
my little ear that they are heard.—
Thoreau.
Announcements from Butte indicate that as soon as the additions

smelter have been finished, the entire force of men employed by the
Amalgamated company will be returned to duty forthwith.
When a man dies tliey who survive him ask what property he has
left behind. The angel who bends
over the dying man asks what
good deeds he has sent beforo him.
—Mohammed.
There is nothing that makes men
rich and strong but that they carry

heart, not the hand.—John Milton.

places rich. Work on those mines
was likewise long abandoned. But
after the war the industry was revived, new quartz mills weie
erected and operations conducted
on an improved and paying basis.
Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee
each have a portion of the samegold-
bearing ruige. Georgia has been
the greatest producer of any of the
Southern States, the mines*having
been most actively and systematically worked, her yield being nearly half a million annually. The

In 1SH!) a hunter in the
northwest of South Wales
wounded a kangaroo. The
animal went oh* through tho mulga
and the salt bush at a pace too fast
for tho hunter to follow. The
hunter was a bushmau and did not
depair. He followed the blood
trail hopeful of a short search and
a speedy bag. At one point of the
pursuit it may be that tlie trail grew
faint and necessitated a closer inspection. Anyway the hunter
stooped and picked up a piece of
stone. This he examined. The
red Kpot was not on it. It was in
it. Such was the beginning of fhe
White ('lilts op'il fields.
This i.- the kind of trick Fortune
loves to piny on designing man.
Not very many years ago, when the
thatched roof of an ancient cottage
near Hipon, Kngland, was removed,
a rich nest of live guinea gold pieces
was discovered hidden away under
it, When the news of this treasure store came to the cars of a
neighboring landowner he was so
fired by the lust of gold that he
forthwith purchased a dozen siin-
11ntr cottages in the district nnd had
thi-in all piitlid down, but imt a
solitary coin was found in exchange
tor the l.:i,0U0 the exjieriiuciit cost
