deep tunnel was commenced in September last, and since then only enough
ore has been taken  from   the  upper
levels to defray the cost of exploration
work.   A three-drill compressor plant
has been put in  to facilitate driving,
together with a large ventilating plant
operated bv water power.   This main
tunnel is now in 1,700 feet, and is seven
feet hv nine feet in the clear.   A  shaft
was also started from the lowest of the
previous  tunnels,   and this has been
sunk 220 feet on the vein.   Tlie lode
has been opened up at two stations below No 5, that is Nos. (5 and 7, 100 and
200 feet respectively below No. 5.   A
raise has now been started from the
main   tunnel  to connect with  No. 7.
This wil! be 185 feet long, and No. 8
station will be located half way up the
raise.   The   lode has been proved at
Nos. ti and 7, and ore is being extracted
at the present time.   The lode at the
level of the main tunnel has not yet
been explored,but the upraise will soon
be completed, and the vein in the lower
level will then be explored.   All ore
from the upper levels will be handled

ISjJA General Review Given in the Engineering and
jji* Mining Journal by E, Jacobs.
Continuing his article on Mining in
British Columbia, the first installment
■of which was published in these columns
last week, E. Jacobs says-
More reduction works are being established as the demand for thein increases.   Smelters have been erected at
Pilot Bay, Nelson and  Trail,  in the
Kootenay; at Grand Forks, Greenwood
and Boundary Falls, in the Boundary,
and at Van Anda, Texada Island.   The
smelter at Northport, Washington, is
within 20 miles of Rossland, and other
smelters in the United States also treat
ores from British Columbia.  The biggest
stamp mill in the Province is at the
Ymir mine, where a battery of 80 stamps
is in operation.   There are other stamp
mills, concentrators, etc., but it is evident that an enormous quantity of plant
and machinery will be required to meet
the rapidly growing requirements of
ore production and treatment.
Much outside capital has already been
-SiaRloyfidjii^qniiection with the min i n g
a valid free miner's certificate, which
costs $5 for a full year or a proportionate sum for any shorter period, but all
certificates expire on May 31. A free
miner may enter on Crown lands and,
too, on other lands where the right to
enter has been reserved, and may pros-'
pect for minerals, locate claims and
mine. Claims may not be located on
Indian reserves or within the curtilage
of any dwelling. Should a free miner
neglect to renew his certificate upon expiry all mining claims held by hiin under its rights, if not crown-granted, revert to the Crown, unless he be a joint
owner, in which case his interest or
share reverts to his qualified partners
or co-owners. It is not necessary for a
shareholder in an incorporated mining
company, as such, to possess a free
miner's certificate.
A mineral claim is a rectangular piece
of ground not exceeding 1500 feet
square. The claim is located by erecting three posts as defined in the Act.

Iii an interview in the Nelson Miner,
Manager Garde of the Payne said:   "In
regard to the Payne development,work
is being pushed as fast as possible and
within a couple of months we will be
able to open up three new levels, Nos.
1, 7 and 8, at one time, and show up tho
ore bodies that are below the present
workings.   The phaft connecting No. 5
level with No. 8 level,which was driven
from the north side of the hill, is being
sunk at a high rate by contract and
raising from No. 8 is in progress at the
same time.   The connection between
these levels should be made before De-
comber lst.   The shaft is now 186 feet
down below the No. 5 tunnel.   A new
hoist was recently installed and is now
being operated by air    This hoist takes
the place of the gasoline hoist which
was not entirely satisfactory    Tho air

are now used in the shaft for sinking.
industry of the  Province,  but "much
more is needed for the more extensive
development of its enormous mineral
resources.    Eastern  Canadian money
has been put into mining and smelting
enterprises at Rossland, in the Boundary  and   elsewhere.    United   Slate,
capital haB done much towards developing mines at Rossland and in the Slocan, and the British Columbia Copper
Company, Limited, of New York, has
spent more than $600,000 on its Mother
Lode mine and smelter, near Greenwood, with good returns now coming
in.   A comparatively large amount of
British capital has also found its way

being crown-granted, is held practically
on a yearly lease, an essential requirement of which  is   the  doing of assessment work on tbe claim annually to tbe
value of $100 or, in lieu   thereof, payment of that amount to the inining recorder.   Each assessment must be recorded before tho experation of the year
to which it  belongs  or the claim  is
deemed abandoned,   When assessment
work to the value of $500 has been recorded the owner of a mineral claim is,

with   electricity   he could 'establish  a

ing on the Theosophical lecture given
here a fortnight ago refers to Theosophy
as the religion of the Hindoos. Kindly
allow me to inform your readers that
the word Theosophy is derived from
two Greek words—Theo, divine, and
Sophia, wisdom. This divine wisdom
is the silver cord running* through all
the religions of the world, therefore
Theosophy gives no more allegiance to
Hinduism than it does to Christianity,
nor to Buddhism more than to any other
form of religion iu the wide world; see
ing as it does in these, various forms hut
one Eternal Truth even as there is only
one centre to the circle.

m Grandma Cooks at Tt
"Grandma, I see by a writer in
an eastern women's paper, that the
mothers in the "social circles'*
in Ontario are complaining of the
great difficulty experienced in finding young men for their marriageable daughters. They say that the
servant girls—those who work for
a living—readily lind husbands,
while those of refinement and social standing are doomed to spend
their maidenhood, uncared for and
alone.    Why is this?"
The tjiiestion was asked by a
bright eyed daughter of sweet
temperament and lofty aim. and
Cirantliiin adjusted her glasses to
the situation and replied:
••Well, now. daughter;., it do
puzzle me lo know what there is
strange about that. Them mothers
inns' he poor critters, indeed, not
to be'able to sec where they have
misled themselves an' failed in
their callin". When I was a gurl
I suppose the same question was
asked, an' when you grow to be as
old as 1 he they wi]l be askin' it
still. Why', bless yer soul, child;
its no fa lilt o: the young men, nor
the young women, nor be the
mothers all to blame. It's the way
o' the world. Society, child, society's to blame. Yes, they had
society when 1. was a gurl, air'
some o' it was much the same as it.
be now; but not so much so. In
them days women looked deeper
into things than they do now, an'
even what was the --wa-y-up" set
looked deeper tlvn th' surface. Men
in them days was mighty proud o
surface showin's,   prouder'n   the_\
shell o' any o' us, from royalty
down to peasantry. But there be
a heap o' difference in the way we
have developed what's in us. If
there be any good in being o' good
stock, aud I'm not say in' there is,
but if there be, then it o't to show
in soniethinr deeper than on the
surface. Deeds o' kindness, works
o' love, simplicity o' character,
lofty ambitions, charitableness,
freedom from sham an' social
foibles; these characteristics should
show in the lives, o' the gurls o'
today. This be a practical age. an
age o' *'works,'' not o' fume, fuss
an" lizzie. The gurl what works
develops a. stronger, nobler character, and bci-omcs useful to those
about her, She learns to know the
meaning o' life, learns to know herself, and, knowing ■ herself, she
learns to develop the best that is in
her—awl any gurl what does this,
be she o' high stock or low stock,
is sure to make her's a successful
life. Remember this, child, an"
Ion't be tucked away in Ihe ideal
that life in a- dreamy fairy-land for
mtterllies to play in.'*
WO JIANGS    ItKASOX     IS    lill(ll),
A writer in a Xew 'York maga-
I zinc tells what he en'deavored to
learn about corsets. He got inquisitive and took a day oil' to satisfy his curiosity on thc question.
This is the way he tells about it,
and it might be said right here that]
he is not the first, man who has
mastered the subject in a brief
space of time:
him, and Annie has worn corset-
long enough to know something
about them, so I went hopefully to
her and asked:
" 'Annie, why do you wear corsets? '
Her reply'was very encouraging
and stimulating:   'Why do I wear
of their business; most of their
patronage appears to come from the
women, and those who make a specialty of female diseases, I notice,
are always busy.'
"'The inore reason why they
should keep their mouths shut, and
not go around abusing the people-
corsets?   What a question; why do j who support thein."     And Annie

reply, he said: 'Well, sir, those

The women are, as a rule, convinced tliat intemperance is the

Eighth Yeab
London's new paper, The. Father (the
name is old enough), publishes this on
"The Balance of Power":
You take some States,not less than three;
We'll cal! them A and B and C—
Not Russia, France or Germany,
But each a simple letter.
Supposing*'A should buy a gun,
Then B must purchase more than one;
And C, who cannot be outdone,
Will go a cannon better,
Now A, if not entirely mad, !
Another gun or so must add.
As many as the others had,
Until he overtops them;
And B and C will order more,
Exactly aB they did before,
And lay up implements of war
Till lack of money stops them
For this is the Balance of Power,
Humanity's loveliest flower;
If we were not afraid
Of the guns we have made
We should all be at war in an hour.
The war clouds may threaten and lower,
But never will break in a shower,
For we haven't the cash
To do anything rash,
Upsetting the Balance of Power.
Then B, on some convenient day.
Will make a secret league with "A ■
In which thev practically sav,
They'll »*o for C together:
The secret, being one of State,
Is certain to evaporate,
And C may soon anticipate
Extremely sultry weather.
So C his neighbors will fatigue
With patriotic base intrigue,
Until he makes a secret league
With each of both the others;
So any two to fight are loath,
Because the third is bound by oath,
To tig-lit against and for them both
As enemies and brothers.
And this is the Balance of Power,
Diplomacy's climax and flower;
If we did not surmise
We were all telling lies
We should nil be at war in an hour.
The war clouds may threaten and lower
But never will break in a shower,
For vou cannot depend
On a! foe or a friend
When it comes to the Balance of Power
To Adam in his great transgression
there came a prophetic voice declaring
he should be doomed to earn his bread
"by the sweat of his brow. The bounteous gifts of Nature were in future to be
cared for, nursed and cultivated. His
whole life was now to become one of
•solicitude and activity, and even then
when his best skill had been bestowed
on the means of living, he was to see it
mayhap swept away by the storm to
perish by drought or be devoured by
the locusts, amTstandTamicTthe ruins"of
his labor an humbled and impotent man.
That decree of Heaven, which was to
be so literally fulfilled to Adam, has
followed his descendants down through
all the ages and as populations and
manufactures increase this anathema is
becoming more decided in its prediction
and more emphatic as a living necessity, The alliance that exists hetween
Capital nnd Labor is the closest tie of
interdependence that binds the human
Capital is refined as being the accumulated savings of labor and tho profits
arising from the savings of labor; it is
the essential of progress, and hence
every industrial pursuit demands an
application of Ub resources in the development of labor.
Labor is of two forms, forced or voluntary; the forced being that which
holds humanity aB a slave op in a state
of serfdom In the days of Roman
power it was considered a source of
wealth to be possessed of slaves nnd
serfs, and some of the work erected by
euch labor stands today as historic
monuments that are the surprise and
ikdi-iiration of thc. world Voluntary
labor is evolved from the gradual lib*
eiiy that arose from the cultivation of
trades, and the itiecliauical demands on
skilled labor. The workmen became
isolated individuals, into many professions, thus disrupting tlm common
basis of labor and diviM'llng the mIikIh

vol,.-   i it t  • ..  iti   timl   which   uffei-ts
so with the employer.   His life is full
of anxious thoughts oi the past and
future—of  contracts   that will  fail to
meet expenditure, of required material
increased in value, of debtors of whose
payments there aro doubts, and other
delays and worries that tend to shrivel
life and sharpen the temper.   And when
we ask the question: "What is the matter with the boss?" little we know of
the weary hours our employer has suffered on matters that affect our welfare
as much as his own.   Struggling and
battling with adverse circumstances is
the lot of many capitalists, and when
we consider that not 10 per cent, of those
who embark in business succeed, how
slow  we are to realize the effect of
failure on a heroic spirit who has fought
and failed, and how miserable we are
in withholding the mantle of charity or
the  svmpathetic  word      Many  have
been the methods adopted to solve the
great problem of how best to govern
the relations of Capital and Labor.
The  Workmen's Compensation Act
has come to the front with rapid strides
and   yet  the   workman   clamors   for
amendments, until   capitalists   protest
against the injustice warred on enterprise,  and  the  serious   danger   that
threatens the lifeof industry,   Our law-
courts bear emphatic evidence of the
claims made by workmen, even where
the plaintiff has had the erection of the
work and suffered by his own want of
skill or precaution; yet in the face of
contributavy   negligence,   he  has  the
hardihood to drag his employer into
court for an accident  for
alone to blame.   On   the   other  hand
some  employers are anxious to ru-h
contracts on the motto "Time is money"
that they ignore, the common elements
of safety, and when   accidents  oecuv
through this cause it is but just that the
law step in and punish the carelessness
that endangers the life of any workman.
We have trades-unionism as another
means to an end.   The law permits men
to combine and conspire for their own
welfare, but when you take thought of
the coercive measures adopted by this
form of society it cannot  accomplish
much,   For instance, two men serve an
apprenticeship to a trade; one is a master of his craft, and the other a slow,
poor workman.   Yet his union demands
that his pay equal his superior fellow-
workman.   Now we contend that this
is a double edged injustice—first, on his
employer,   and  next  on  his  brother
workman, and society will never in this
age'ofreason-tendtosniooth the friction
that must naturally arise from such unjust demands.
The nearest approach to the solution
of the labor question is the principle of
profit-sharing. It reduces production
to a community of interests: it places
the employer on his integrity; watchfulness is superseded by confidence; sel
fishness is uprooted by justice, and tho
true recognition of worth is established
by the simple act of co-partnership.
The workman becomes imbued with n
spirit of economy; his work is transposed into a labor of love; all the nobler
feelings of his nature are called into
action; a now era has dawned upon his
life. He labors to save, to promote, to
invent; in a word he is a partner with a
financial interest that he is compelled
to respect. He is consulted in the
affairs of tho firm, and feels a' pardonable pride when his advice takes practical form. Firms under such a ruling
aro generally successful.
Thorn is another form of solution to
the labor question, which is now uni-
versally preached—tho gospel of Socialism The great dtlliculty with it is that
not two advocates of its doctrines agree
as to its application From Carl Max,
with all the intervening apostles, down
to Henry George, each seems to have n
remedy entirely of hifl own thinking.
Some seem to aim at the re-modelling
of society, some to disrupt society, and
not a few labor to pioduce a stHtc of | excelled

"Goin't' begin harvestin'  t'lnorrer,"
"Dew tell.    Must   hev airly  crops,"
from her.
Then the clock had the tloor for another seventeen minutes.
"Hoss is sick," she said
"Waal, I'll be durn.   Which un?" ex-
claimed Jim.
"Bay mare."
After this outburst nothing was said
for thirty minutes.
,    "Goin' t' th' siiigin' skule Saturday
whichh01^ | night?" queried Jim.
"Nobuddy a\t me," she said.
"1 axes ye," said Jim, bravely.
. "I'll go,'" she. said.
Twenty-five minutes elapsed.
"Oie Boss bed a kaff," Jim said.
"Law me," she said.
Twenty minutes passed.   Then Jim
unlocked his hands, put on his hat and
stood up.
"Goin?" she asked.
"Goin'," he said, and walked out on
the.  porch.   She followed him to the
door and they both stood thus in silence
for ten minutes.
"Must be after eight," he said.
"Must be," she said.
"Good-night, Mandy," he said.
"Good-night, Jim," she said,and shut
the door as he walked out of the yard.
And yet this is the twentieth century,
mineral are reported from New Ontario
in the Michipieoten district. South of
Lake Wawa a large copper deposit, two
miles long, has been found and acquired
by A. W. Fraser's Ottawa syndicate and
the Clergue syndicate. Some of tho oro
is reported to be of the sensational richness of 27 per cent. The early comple
tion of thc AJgoma Central will enable
development to go on almost immediately It is said also that the Clergue
gold at Lake Wawa has turned out to
be an excellent body of ore.   Gold dis-
