Orders to close down came from
Byron N. White late on Tue-day and
were a surprise to the Sandon oHiu'rs
of the company Asked as to thc
reasons for closing* down. Oscar V.
White, superintendent of the Slocan
Star, stated that the suspensim nf operations was an outcome of the court
order in the Star Mining A Milling Co
vs. the Byron X. White Co. The. owners did not propose to'continue mining
operations while they might be hampered or impeded hy tint surveyors of llie
Star M. & M. Co.
Interviewed on the matter yesterday.
.1 M. Harris, of the StarM ,t M.Co .
saitl that aside from inspecting the Slocan Star workings at Christmas time he,
had not yet made, any effort to avail
himself of the court order in the famous
Rabbit Paw apex case. He was not in
a position to give any statement on
what conclusions he drew from his inspection ofthe mine. He had intended
to commence surveying at Chr'stmas
time, but in compliance with a request
l'i oni Oscar Y. White he had concluded
to defer- commencing until alter the
holidays. Clements and Farwell, the
surveyors who will do the surveying,
arrived in town last night to commence
work immediately. Mr. Harris stated
that he expected the work ot surveying
to take :-t0 days. The court order gives
the surveyors privilege of taking lo
men into the mine to assist in the work
good, from which should be deducted
the deficit of ..S212.H7. By doing so a
balance of §890.08 is left, which is the
real amount the people of Slocan City
have spent for the. common good, the
remaining SI,5-1-1.7-1 have been spent to
keep the machinery of government in

Speaking of the possibilities of the
coal mine ai Fiank the Sentinel shys-
The Company's mine here was never
in better shape, for producing a large
output than ,-it the present time. The
main entry is now in on the coal vein a
distance of i,.s0ti feet and in the face
shows eleven feet of clean, hard coal.
This entry is being driven ahead as
fast as two shifts of miners can drive it.
and at the rate it is going ahead it will
not he long before the Company will
feel justilicd iu installing the cable system to haul the cars in this tunnel At
present horses are being used for hauling-
The vein,which is a laige one,varying
from 10 to over i'ii feet iu thickness, is
peculiar in the history of coal mining,
in so much as it stands perpendicularly
and the walls, which are of iron sandstone, being ns hard as Hint. It is pe
ciiliar also in the fact that although a
great depth has been obtained upon the
vein there is no gas iu the mine und
open liuhtsare used in all parts.

The above figures are correct as far
as we have been able to learn. The
total is several thousand tons less
than last year, although to these figures
must be added thd ore shipped from the
Whitewater mine by way of Kaslo
This ought to bring the total for the
year up to MO.OOO tons.

Mr Aldridge. says thai all of tlie
metal markets have been most tinsati---
tactory to mines, smelters and refineries. The fall in lead and silver has
affected the receipts of some of the
Kootenay lead and silver mines to the
extent of $000,000 aii'iually, comparing
the quotations for these metals in January with those at the. present time. The
smelters have also lost heavily in buying and selling on a falling market.

ouglily alive to the situation, and while
Loudon lead remains at present prices,
they will join in making a reduction
from S:l to §4 for the coining year in
freight and treatment charges ou lead
ores The smelters are willing to reduce their charges provided they can be
relieved from the danger of incurring
further losses due to the decline in
metals and it is generally conceded
that the present prices of metals have
nearly reached bottom. To accomplish
this it is proposed that the preliminary
settlements involving- the payment of
tin per cent, of the proceeds will be
made as soon as the results are obtained
at the smelter, and tiual settlement to
be made on quotations for metals !«•
days after the preliminary settlement.
It is proposed to reduce the zinc limit
from 10 per cent, to s per cent., which
would mean that on clean lead ores
carrying lo per cent, lead and over the
total reduction in freight and treatment
charges will he f I per ton. while on ores
containing over .*■> per cent, situ- the net
reduction will be $!l per ton.
The above reductions iu rates will
not compensate the mines for their
losses iu the decline of metals from the
first of the year to the present time, but
as the quotations for London lead dur
ing the latter part of 1900 and the be
change in prices. The conditions affecting this metal have been fully referred to in recent issues."
The Calgary Albertan has a writer
on its staff who signs himself "Mull,"
and who had the temerity to say the
following of the guests at the St. Andrew's ball in his town: "He ance read

gien by the deil, wha
Linkit at it in her sark:
but  some of the   leddies   at   Friday's
dance, tae a' appearances, didna hae a
sark on their backs.   The bare legs o'
the kilties on that account didna look
oot 0' place. Mull has. however, tae
gie in tae the lack that some 0' the.
weemen were weel faured and didna
look half bad wi' next tae naething* on,
while ithers wad hae looked better had
they flung a crazy quilt ower their
scrawny necks."

When Billy Barker, the man tor j ing   the   operation,    but   '*
whom the town of Barkerville was
named, iirst started to sink a shaft
below the canyon on Williams creek
there were not many  miners  who
shared in his sanguine opinion that
rich pay continued down the creek,
but after he struck  it richer than
the Steel  or  Abbott claims   paid
above the canyon, everybody came
to the conclusion that Billy's idea
was pretty  nearly  correct, and a
regular   stampede   for claims followed, which resulted in the staking of all the ground  between  the
canyon  and  Jack  of Clubs lake.
Every man on thc creek had an
even chance.    There was no  grab
game allowed in those days for one
man to stake ten or twenty claims
for .himself and friends on speculation.    The old  mining laws only,
permitted one claim by preemption
and one by purchase to each individual,and if instead of the government tinkering  with the   mining
laws they would get down to common horse sense mining principles,
and go back to the laws of 1861,
they could do more good for the
majority of practical miners and be
able to offer greater inducements to
capital than the present placer act
affords, which gives all the, benefits
of a new discovery to the best man
with an axe, and it seems strange
that our Solons "don't take a tumble,or get some one to throw a gold
mine on top of them.'"    They never i
would be missed,  any  more than
Camerontown   or   Marysville   are
missed by residents of Barkerville
who  recollect  how  the one arose
Phoenix like from its ashes, while
her   two   promising   rivals    were
buried   under  twenty-five  feet of
f tailings in the meantime. Before
these events occurred the Barker.

there's a will there's a way,'" and
magnanimous Jim found a way.
The water was muddy, and as he
gave the pan a vicious whirl, preparatory to a final shake, he let it
fall into the water, and while endeavoring to get it out threw a lot
of gold into the hole. When he
brought the pan to the surface all
eyes were intently gazing at the
contents and Jim saw that it was
impossible to deceive them any
longer. He therefore got up and
politely handed Mrs. Cameron the
contents of that pan of dirt, when
the party returned to the surface.
Mrs. Cameron took the pan home,
and after weighing the generous
gift found to her astonishment that
she had 60 ounces of gold—approximately S1,000 About the same
time that Mrs. Cameron was admiring her precious wealth, Jim
made a straight shoot for the water
hole, and the boys stated that all
the candles went out and that the
air smelt like sulphur while Jim
Loring worked hard at that water
hole panning out the gold he had
put into it. He finally got it all,
and when it was weighed Jim had
just 40 ounces, or nearly $700,
which with the amount Mrs. Cameron received, made SI,700, the
yield of one pan of poor dirt from
the Diller claim.
Iii a recent novel we all read, the
author, in playful mood, makes as
the chief difference between one
character "to the manner born,''
and another, presumptuous, who
has risen from the ranks, that the
former uses the toothbrush three
times each day without personal
felicitation, while the latter makes
proud mention of the single daily
Trivial as the incident; may seem.
it means much; it means that our
are happy. Where before you
passed the dentist fearfully,making
observation from the corner of your
eye, you now greet him boldly, a
broad smile upon your face.
Time passes,and the decay which
has caused the death of the pulp
(the nerve) works down through
the root into the surrounding
tissues. Some night you lie down
and feel a heaviness like a weight
on the affected tooth; you bite on it
and it seems longer than the others,
and sore. The pain increases to a
dull heavy throb. You walk the
floor and watch your face swell.
Next morning your head is size one
and a half. You consult your
dentist and this time it is he that
smiles. You ,look in the glass and
see why.   "
"Abscess,'' he says, as he stabs
the swelling with a sharp bistoury.
Have I made it clear, my friend,
Just another condition you have
wondered at. You brush your
teeth vigorously—for a change—
and find your gums bleed. "Too
hard, bad thing for them," you
say, and wait longer before you indulge again. 'When next you try
you brush them softly, gingerly,
and now they bleed at the sligetest
touch. You conclude at last it is
time to see your dentist.
What does he find ? Lime salts
from the saliva (tartar you call it)
has been deposited all about the
necks of the teeth under the gums.
The irritant has heen there long,
and much blood has been sent to
the parts; they have grown abnormally and are large and red and
full of blood. The "tartar" has
pushed back the soft tissues so
that the necks of the teeth are exposed high up.
The dentist asks if you clean
your teeth regularly and smiles
knowingly when you hesitate.
Then he takes a tiny hook and
pulls the deposits clear; the blood
ilowing in streams where he touches
so that"you marvel. "Cood." he
observes, "it will make you feel
better,"   and   it   does.     "Now,"

Ninth Yeak
A poor wretch was about to be
hanged in one of the north-eastern
counties of Maryland. His lawyers had been working hard to
save his neck, aud there seemed to
be some possibility that he might
be reprieved. But the time set for
the execution arrived, and the
march to the scaffold had begun,
■when a messenger appeared waving
A telegram in his hand.
The condemned man, trembling
with hope, tore open the envelope.
He cast his eager glance at the
message, paled, and let it drop
irom his hand. The sheriff picked
up the paper, read it,and the march
to the scaffold was resumed. In a
few minutes the man who had hoped
for a reprieve was in eternity.
The message was from some minister who had become interested in
the case. It told him to trust in
the Lord and he would be saved.—

l.mill Surveyot     Hmitl'iit,
At a big dinnor given in Toronto
some days ago by the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association, Wm.
Robins of Hiram Walker's booze
factory, delivered an address on
Imperialism. He said many good
things in the coarse of his remarks,
and some that were badly tinged
with cent-belt ideas. Speaking of
reciprocity with the United States
Mr. Robins remarked: "I do not
want to throw stones at our American friends, but you may remark
this, that .'whea reciprocity did exist the balance of trade was in their
favor, and that when they put an
end to reciprocity, it was not due to
commercial reasons. No matter
what, they meant, whether to force
us into annexation or not, I say
that wc may be glad, for today we
have more self-reliance than we
would have had otherwise."
There is another side to this
question of reciprocity and self-
reliance and annexation. It seems
that prominent Canadians will
never quit talking about annexation. Thev seem to believe that
the whole business of our friends
across the line is, by intrigue
and stealth, to force Canada into annexing herself with Uncle Sam. No
matter what comes "up in the commercial or diplomatic world, wherein Canada and the United States
are interested, the cry goes up,
•'look out for annexation.'' On
the other side of the line it is extremely doubtful if the question of
annexation is ever thought of. Of
what benefit would it be to Uncle
Sam's domain to annex Canada?
If Canada were annexed it would
mean that our national debt of
something like three hundred millions would have to betaken care of
in the transfer. The only thing
that would induce the American
people to consider the question of
annexation would be the commer-

cial advantages to be gained thereby. • They are a people of thrift,
and business—dollars and cents.
They know a good thing, and never
loose an opportunity of boosting it
along. Just now that good thing
is America. It has always been
America. It will ever be America.
Under present conditions, there
could be no advantage derived by
the United States in annexing our
Lady of the Snows. The advantage would ho to Canada, in that
we would then be placed under a
more progressive policy and forced
t-o build ourselves up. American
capital and American workmen
have the same commercial privileges in Canada as Canadian capital and Canadian workmen. The
American capital int lias already
annexed Canada commercially. All
our iron, coal, lumber and metal
industries are gradually being
monopolized by Americans. It in
only a quoiHon of a few years until
these industries will be completely
in American control. They are
already held in audi a way as to
turn all the commercial cream into
American coffers. Canada ia today
at the mercy of the commercial
kings acrosH the line. They want
no lM-tt<»i- annexation than thin.

heart with which we must be kind
iu dealing. Frailties are not sin;
sin is the result, of frailties indulged
in. 'Tis enough to "do jrour work
today as well as you can—and be
kind." Do this and you will not
burden any skypilot with thoughts
of darkness in your search after
the Truth.
I have stood hy the open excavation of the new underground railroad in New York City looking at
the men digging. They have told
me they got $2 a day for fair days
when the work could go on. Living is expensive in New York.
These are not the submerged; they
are the men of brawn and health.
They are the "labor."
I have gone through the corridors of the fashionable hotels at
midnight hours and looked on the
diners and winers, the evening
dress of men and women, with
liveried waiters obsequiously serving the viands of all lands.
These are the "employers."
Are the interests of the two
classes mutual ? Can easy-going
optimism conjure up any relation
between the two? Can any bridge
spun the chasm between them ?
"When I go through our factories
and see line, able-bodied, dextrous,
earnest men working nine hours
every day and every year a lifetime
through, fashioning the uncouth
raw material of wood and metal
and marble into house material, I
ask myself, "Will the 'laborer'
have any of these polished and
luxurious appliances in the home
of his family or will they only go
into the houses of tlie well-to-do.
the mansions of the rich, the 'employer'class?" Are the interests
of the laborer and the capitalist
mutual in this work ?
I know full well that many will
say that money payment settles the
whole score; but even if that were
so, is there any mutality When one
makes   and   the   other  enjoys'.-*--
