Aii ordinary meetinir of the^ Enterprise. Mines company was held in Lon
don on the 1st inst., and a very favorable report was read setting forth a
full account of operations at this pioneer
Ten Mile, property. Speakina* of pro-
tits, the report says: "Vou will observe
that the nrotlt shown by the accounts
amounts to nearly £0,000, which I think
you will agree, with me is satisfactory,
considering that in these accounts are
charged the whole of the administration
and other expenses both in British Columbia and London, for something over
1J years, and especially so as during
that period the unfortunate miners-
striko did not allow of mining opera,
tions being commenced until early in
March, 1900, thus reducing the work'
ing of the mines to a limit of about nine
jnonths,,and_ev:en^uriug_that_pei*iod,
shipments were reduced down to about
20 tons of ore per week immediately
after it was found that mrchanical treatment of the ore would be advantage
ons."
"The mill," continues the report, "is
in every wav up-to-date. It is operated
hy water power, involving none of the
expense attending the working of steam
power, and as it has a capacity of deal
ing with 50 tons of ore daily you will
also readily understand the large saving of labor which will consequently he
effected thereby. A complete coin
pressor plant, operated by water power
in the same way as the concentrating
mill, has been installed, which again
saves labor, and whilst expediting that
work will reduce the expenses of mining. All tho necessary buildings for
the manager, the, staff, and workmen
have been erected. The road between
the mill and the point of shipping has
been put in good order, ami consequent
ly we have today a mine fully equipped
with every necessary requisite for llu
most ccoci'inim! and continuous work
iug.
"The work done upon the mines i*
very considerable, opening up a largi-
amount of ore ready for stoping. The
me, we were informed in August bet
would he sullicieiit to supply the mi)
iviili 5(1 tons daily for nearly two ycars-
wliieli, reduced to tons, iiifiounts to
some -25,000. and, as our latest report
states lnitliei* good ore is still heiug
opened up, there ,'ippoitis lobe no doubt
as to the future '"
Mr. Wetheiel, a representative of the
company, who recently visited the F.n*
terprUe, concluded his remarks before
thn meeting in this encouraging man
ner: "1 am perfectly certain we are
going to make fair profits from the very
start (of the mill), nnd that when all the
machinery has adjusted itself, and
when we know the best method of concentration, the prolits will ne on a scale
which will teturti large dividend*, loth*
shareholders''

year of £726, showing a great improvement as far as that goes. After adding
tlie balance brought forward from the
previous year, it shows £1,900 to dispose*, of. The directors propose to write
off from the development account £1,500
carrying over £400 odd, the balance.
The balance sheet shows that the cred-

side, going up from £2,000, roughly, to
£4,800; and on the other side the. cash

In a special article written for thc. B.
C. Review, of London, by R. C. Campbell-Johnston, the question of mining in
the Slocan is dealt with in a manner
that will command the attention of
every intelligent mind, and especially
of mining men conversant with the
subject.   He says:
"Slocan to date has been, and by
present development is still, facile precipes iu the highest-grade ore of any
silver-lead camp in the world. Her
shipments and the returns in lead and
silver are tabulated and recorded in the
reports of the Minister of Mines of the
Province of British Columbia, and she
defies comparison from other camps.
The mining facilities, from timber,
water powers and tunnel sites, in contradistinction to sinking are in her
favour.
"Despite all this dividends are not
forthcomip.g-iu-abundance to-the shareholders, who are justified in expecting
them. Would not this fact indicate
that "no dividends'' ia not the fault of
the district, but rather aometimes of the
management, sometimes of the want of
working capital to develop the mines,
and especially the treatment of the ore,
and the giving away the bulk of the
profits to others for carrying and treating it, instead of the shareholders putting that profit in their own pockets?
Look at the balance-sheet of every incorporated company operating there.
Vou will see the gross receipts of oro a
substantial amount, and against in
freight, treatment, and their contingencies eating up 50 per cent, of this
gross, the costs of mining, development
and what dividend* there aro coming
out of the other half. Allow that the
management in right, and that systematic cross-cutting with diamond drills to
locate the chutes of ore on the many
vein* from the main working tunnels is
Kiitticieiitly carried out, that mining is
executed in an up-to-date style with machine drills and M|uiire*Het timbering,
what have, we then'.**
"We have wide veins of ore. 1 know
of many 8 to 18 feet wide, with surtieient
values throughout, but with only from
<• inches to llfeet of clean galena (lead
ore; in places.
"In other campn, since the mass of
ore makes the mine, this vein would
he extracted from wall to wall, and
mine treatment found to save the whole
of it. Not so in tlio Hlocan; the ((ye* of
the mine are picked out and hand'-orted
the clean ore alone shipped, with n few
«treak* of oxide ore (locally called car*
hoiiatem, and in most cane* the balanee
of the vein i* left standing, or thrown
away on the dump. Thi* ntyle ha* been
«oing on ever nlnc« the discovery of
the milieu there. What other camp
could have *tood it for to many yean:**
"Some mine* have put up mechanical
wet concentrator* to enrich their ore*.
These ore* carry ruby silver, argeiitite
MlSplride i«f silver,, antiuiuiiiitl liUi-i,
! grey copper, all mixed iu together. The
lo** of value* in thi* reckh*** treatment
'may it never be published!/ an.I yit
molt* loncenlratiir-* are all llie lime In*.
Ing erected
"These  ore*   nniht   be  «-im»lr<-d  en
in a Me.   Allttralia, the State*, and other
silver per ton. Then thev are not paid
the full London market price of lead,,
SI per hundred being deducted; a treatment charge for smelting>of abovt $13 a
ton is also made—three times the actual
coat.
"From all this it can be gathered that
the bulk of the ore in the mines is not
marketed at all; that the profits lost on
what is sold to the smelters aie aloue a
hanlsoBie dividend. The American
Lead Trust is blamed and held up as a
bogey (only a hollow turnip), and a
howl goes up for local refineries and a
Government bounty, the old adage being forgotten that "Providence helps
them who help themselves." If the
Canadian Government is soft enough
to make a promise, as it has, so much
the better for any Slocan company who
put up their own smelter and refinery.
"Iu their philanthropy to the Custom
smelters,  the  following is  what the
directors of Slocan companies sanction:
180 the. lead at 2.62 cents ner tt>.... 4.71
4 ozs. silver at 58 cents per oz    2 82
Extra profit on smelting    9.00
Less London market price on 50
per cent, ore  iq.OO
Total gift 126.08
"The shareholders can hardly be surprised that so few dividends accrue even
on what ore is marketed. The Canadian Pacific Railway are only too keen
to get desilverised lead for freight on
their aeeamers from Vancouver to
China: the Canadian mint will buy the
silver. The Government promUe 15 a
ton on lead for refining the first year,
and decreasing $1 each year, otherwise
refining charges (say Id. per oz. on silver when the pig carries 200 ozs. at
least) must he. offset against this 1*26.
The freight from here to China should
hu as low as from all competing parts,
such as Australia, Europe, etc.
"The Slocan i* as rich as she ever
was; the mines are as good, and there
are hundreds of good prospects «till
dormant, so the. shareholder* must look
to the management and financing for-
the fault, and not blame the countrv "
added:
"And tor pity * *ak«, blent papa, too, J mining coiu.trte* have a* yet devised
and let u* have peace in the family."     j no other treatment to *«ve even 7' |ier

"The official reports of the British War Office state that there were,
in August, 13(5,(-519 persons held in
the British concentration camps,
and that in that month 2,345 of
these •reconcentrados' died. Of
this fearful number. 1,878 were
children. Now there are people so
ignorant, as not to understand what
this means. If every man. in the
United State?, did understand, the
South African war would end—or
there would be a war 'as is war."
These figures simply mean — as
every statistician knows—that the
Boer women and children corraled
in barbed wire by their British
conquerors are dying ten times as
fast as any nominal death-rate.
Exposure, insufficient food, insufficient doctoring—these are killing
a thousand Boer women and children for every Boer man between
16 and 00 the British ever killed in
a fair fight. Three years ago we
pretended to be horribly horrified
at Weyler's lesser brutality. Lesser

ignorance of history. It is 'up to'
the United States now. We have
a President who personally sympathizes with the bravest little nation
in modern history. We have never
yet met an American who did not.
Yet the greatest nation in the world
is responsible not only for the killing of the men but the starving of
the women and babies in South
Africa. England is following her

CASEY   AT   THB BAT.
It looked extremely rocky for the Boston
nine that day;
The score stood two to four.with but an
inning left to play,
So, when Coonev died at second, and
Burrows did the same,
A pallor wreathed the features of the
patrons of the game.
A straggling few got up to go, leaving
there the rest,
With that hope which springs eternal
within the human breast,
For they thought, "If only Casey eould
fet a whack at that,"
put up even money now, with
Casey at the hat.
But Flynn preceded Casey,and likewise
so did Blake,
And the former was a puddin', and the
latter waB a fake.
So, on that stricken multitude a death
like silence sat,
For there seemed but little chance of
Casey's getting to the bat.
But Flynn let drive a "single" to the
wonderment of all,
And tlu; much-despised Blakey "tore
the cover off the ball."
And when the dust had lifted, and they
saw what had occurred.
There was Blakey safe at second, and
Flynn a-huggin' third.
Then, from the gladdened multitude
went up a joyous yell,
It rumbled  in the mountain
rattled iu the dell-
It struck upon the hillside,
bounded on the flat;
For Casey, mighty Casey, was
ing to the bat.
it
tops
and  re'
advanc
as
There was ease in Casey's manner
he stepped into his place,
There was pride in Casey's bearing and
a smile on Casey's face;
And when responding to the cheers he
lightly doffed his hat,
No stranger in the crowd could doubt
'twas Caiey at the bat.
Ten thousand eyes were on him as he
rubbed his hands with dirt,
Five thousand tongues applauded when
he wiped them on his shirt;
Then when the writhing pitcher ground
the ball into his hip,
Defiance gleamed in Casey's eye.a sneer
curled Casey's lip.
And now the  leather-covered  sphere
came hurling through the air,
An' Casey stood a-watchin' it in mighty
grandeur there.
Close by the sturdy batsman the ball
unheeded sped;
"That   ain't  my  style,"   said  Casey.
"Strike one," the umpire said.
From tlie benches, black with people,
there went up a muffled roar,
Like the beating of storm waves on the
stern and distant shore;
"Kill him! kill the umpire!" shouted
     some one_on_the stand;     __
AnSlt'a likely they,3~have~T£illed*him
had nof Casey raised his hand.
With a smile of Christian charity great
Casey's visage shone;
He stilled the rising tumult, he made
the game go on;
He -signalled to the pitcher, and once
more the spheroid flew;
But Casey still ignored it, and the umpire said, "Strike two "
"Fraud!"cried the maddened thousands
f        and the echo answered "Fraud!"
1   But one scornful look from Casey, and
the audience was awed;
Thev saw his face grow stern and oold,
they saw his muscles strain,
And they know that Casey wouldn't lot
the hall go past again.
The sneer is gone fro n Casey's lips, his
teeth are clenched in hate,
He pounds with cruel vengeance his bat
upon the plate;
And now the pitcher holds the ball, and
now he lets It go.
And now the air 1b shattered by the
force of Casoy'8 blow.
Oh, somewhere In this favored land the
kuii is Ruining bright,
The hand is playing somowhere, and
som o whore hearts aro light;
And somewhere men are laughing, and
sol..n '.'here children shout,
But there ia no joy in Boston; inlghtv
Casey has struck out.
other was at liberty to have recourse to the shotgun.   Thus the
matter stood for some months, and
each man kept a sharp eye on the
sh^ck of his neighbor and left his
loaded shotgun within easy  reach.
Then, one day, when the sun beat
down  with a scalding heat that
made plowing impossible, a strong
wind blew up—a wind that seemed
to blow out of the very mouth of
Inferno.    Great masses of clouds,
swiftly shifting and changing hue,
now black, now purple, now greenish-yellow, rolled up in the .southwest.   The farmers that had come
from Kansas and Missouri  retired
to their cellars,  if they  possessed
such luxuries, and the tenderfeet
got out their cameras and prepared
to photograph the wonderful cloud
effects.    The clouds shut out the
sun,  and there arose a subdued
murmur that developed first into
a tremulous buzzing and then into
a sullen  roar.    Then  out of the
dark cloud masses came a wonderful pillar, a dusty-grey column that
looked like the lower end of a gigantic balloon.   The column was
indistinct, at first, but it advanced
across the prairies with the speed
of an express train, and as it camel
nearer and nearer the buzzing sound
increased to a roar that was like a
hundred Niagaras.
Smith, the man who occupied
one side of the dead line on the
disputed quarter section, was from
Northern Missouri. When he saw
the shape of the yellow balloon tail
he called to his wife and they made
a run for a little hole he had dug
in his front yard. They let themselves in and closed the trap door
that covered it, and then both lay
low waiting for the shock they
knew was coming.
Jones, on the other side of the
felt as though I was flying up and
apart, like a bag of feathers, and
that was the last I knew until I
came to about six miles from here
with part of my own front porch
heaped on top of me. A fellow
came along and dug me out, and I
found I had nothing broken except
one rib. I found one of my mules
close by, still tied to the scantling
to which he had been hitched, and
the other one I heard of the next
day about three miles away. They
weren't hurt, so I have my team
and myself, and there is a claim
here whose owner was blown away!
and hasn't been heard of, so I have
taken that. I'll stay here unless
another cyclone comes along. Then
you may hear from me in Arkansas
or back in Tennessee. Hoping you
are still there. Respectfully, A.
Jones."
This is a cyclone story that can
be verified, for Smith filed the
letter with the court in establishing
his title to the quarter section. For
that reason the story is „ worth repeating, but, of course, it is not
one that would attract much attention out in the cyclone country
except that it is the only case on
record where the storm usurped
the functions of judge and jury.—

tilities, and so he took down his
shotgun and sat in his shack, with
his aiming eye and his trigger
cocked toward the dead line.
The roaring that came from the
approaching column increased in
intensity; the earth trembled; the
air sang with a hissing noise. Suddenly day was blotted out and
Hades was let loose. Smith and
his wife could neither see nor think
but they instinctively tried to hold
| on to the very earth beneath them,
which seemed to be burled up in
the air and whirled alxmt like a
scrap of paper. *
In a few minutes the roaring
sound began to lessen, the reeling
earth became still again, and the
awift patter of pouring rain was
heard falling on the trapdoor.
After fifteen minutea of suspense
•Smith cautiously raised the door
and peered out. The rain had
slackened and thc sun wax shining.
Smith looked about him. There
stood his shack uninjured. His
cotton aud com hud suffered only
in the loss of a few leaves. Then
he looked over beyond the dead
line and gave a great shout.  Jones

Sincerity is the true and perfect

that no man can be justly saved or
damned on account of the goodness
or the wickedness of another.
I have been in other countries
and have said to myself, "After
all, my country is the best.'' And
when I came back to the sea and
saw the old flag flying, it seemed
as though the air, from pure joy,
had burst into blossom.
Sacred are the lips from which
has issued only truth. Over all
wealth, above all station, above the
noble, the robed and crowned, rises
the sincere man. Happy is the
man who neither paints nor patches,
veils nor veneers. Blessed is he
who wears no mask.
Nothing can be grander than to
sow the seeds of noble thoughts and
virtuous deeds, to liberate the
bodies and the souls of men, to
earn the grateful homage of a race
—and then, in life's last shadowy
hour, to know that the historian of
liberty will be compelled to write
your name.

THEY   MKT    AND   TALKED!'
[By S. W. Foss.]
They met and they talked where the cross-i oatls
meol,
Font- men from the four winds come,
And they talked of the horse, for thev loved the
theme.
And never a man was dumb.
And the man from the North loved the strength
of the horse.
And the man from the East his pace,
And the man from the South loved the -speed ol"
the horse,
And the man from the West his grace.
So the.se four men from the four winds come,
Each paused a s|iaee In his course
And smiled in the face of his fellow-man
And lovingly talked of the horse.
Then each man parted and went his way
As their different courses ran;
And each man journeyed with peace in his heart
And loving his fellow-man.
They met the next year where, the cross-roads
meet,
Four men from the four winds come;
And It chanced as they met that they talked of
God,
Ami never a man was dumb.
One itnsged God In the shape of a man,
A spirit did one Insist;
One said that Nature itself was Gut',
One. said that He didn't exist.
Hut they lashed each other with tongues that
stung,
That smote ns with a rod:
Each glared in the tuce of his fellow-man.
And -"Truthfully talked of God.
Then each man parted and went his way,
As their different courses ran;
And each man journeyed with war in his heart,
Aud hating his fellow-mat*.

PERU.

A. W. McCutie, of Salt Lake, has returned home after an absence of several
months in Peru.   During his stay in
South America Mr. McCune bought for
himself and his associates the famous
Sierra de Pasco groin of mines, says
the   Herald.    This mine,   14,800  feet
above the level of the sea, has been in
operation for 271 years, and during that
time it is estimated that $1,000,000,000
worth of silver has been extracted from
it.   In spite of this prodigious output,
there is not a hole more than 800 feet
deep in the entire property and immense deposits of copper remain untouched.    The mine  is in Peru, 210
miles fiom Lima.   Until about 20 years
ago tlie ore was brought all the way to
the sea coast on the backs of mules.
Then a railroad was built principally
for transporting these ores.   Assistant
Chief Engineer H. M. McCartney of the
San Pedro road was one of the engineers
who built this road up the steep sides
?HliFATTaeir_,,T'hwe~is~an~imraense
deposit of ore there," said Mr. McCune
last evening.   "It can scarcely be called
a fissure vein or a contact—it is simply
a big deposit of ore.   There is nothing
but gopher hales on the entire property.
The mine is worked by meanr* of inclines run down here and there to the
depth of not more than 800 feet, and
the natives carry the ore on their backs
up steps.   The water is carried out the
aame way  in leather buckets.   The
silver ore runs high, but the copper U
low grade both in silver and copper."
Associated with Mr. McCune in this
deal are J. B. Higgin and a number of
other capitalists in New York and elsewhere.   Mr. McCune' would not state
the amount of the purchase price, but
it is understood that the syndicate of
which he is a member expects the investment, including   purchase of the
mine,   equipment nnd erection of »
smelter, to reach $10,000,000.   Mr. McCune  will take active charge of the
mine, sailing from New York for Peru

"Why, Adam!" exclaimed Eve,
aghast.    ''What do you mean?"
"Er—well,'' ventured Adam,
"don't you think a fig-leaf is a
trifledecollete, so to speak?"
"No," said Eve, rather snappishly/ "so long as I don't give
any garden parties, I think a fig-
leaf is all right. Dear me! Do
you wish ine to wear a sealskin
sacque this warm weather?''
Adam did not answer this last
sally, but sat down to the table
and poured out a cup of coffee.
"This coffee, is too weak." he
said, irritably.
You are very touchy today,
A dam," said Eve, reproachfully.
"Next, T suppose, you'll be telling
me that I can't make coffee like
your mother used to make."
"I wish I had my rib back,"
returned Adam. "I'd about as
lief live alone as drink lukewarm
dishwater.''
"Well, if I had a mamma,"
sobbed Eve, in an injured tone,
''you bet I'd go home to her."
Adam ate the remainder of his
meal in silence.—Ohio State" Journal.
