there and saw gold gleaming in the
creek beds, and as the yellow stuff is
now about ripe he intends to go after a
few millions this summer.
The surest way of putting an end to
local sports between neighboring camps
in the Slocan is to play crack men as
"ringers." The tactics adopted by the
Silverton baseball team can result in
nothing else. Better lose a game than
practice deception.

The local baseball enthusiasts who
are still playing the game of May 24th,
while they no doubt have good grounds
for complaint at tho treatment received
at Silverton, should remember that the
game could hardlj have resulted in
anything else but their defeat when
they allowed 17 runs to be made in two
Innings. Saw wood!

early sixties, and knows frontier lifo
from soda to hock. John once built a
chimney for this office. May he come
back with a barrel of nuggets is the
wish of many friends.
So successful was the children's picnic on May 24th that an effort Is being
made to arrange for a general cltlsen's
picnic at the Bosun grounds on Dominion Day, Manager Sandiford Is beading
the movement, and enough labor has
been volunteered to clear tht grounds
and put them In belter condition, and
Hill Bros, will provide the rough lumber for ihedi, tables, etc., tbe Intention

The result was satisfactory.
The Payne will build a concentrator

MINING   IS   NOT   BACKWARD.
In the B C. Review, of London,Eng.,
J. A. McMillan, managing director of
the B. C. Syndicate of London capitalists, expressed very forcibly his views
upon the question of mining in this
province. Asked as to what in his
opinion was the cause of the reported
TiMlJwaFdnMri-_^irnngJ"hT8aid:
, "In the first place I do not admit that
British Columbia mining is backward.
On the contrary, it is making giant
strides. Very little is heard in London
about B, C. mining, and so men over
here are apt to assume that but little is
being dono in mining matters in British
Columbia. In Rossland alone at the*
present time the mines are turning out
ore at the rate of nearly 400,000 tons
per annum. The values are principally
in gold and copper, and for purposes of
comparison with other countries I may
say that this is equivalent in value to
about 300,000 ozs. of gold per annum.
This Is in Rossland alone, and serious
mining has only just commenced there."
"Hits not mining been carried on in
Rossland for some years past?"
"Yes, in a small way since 1896. The
companies operating in those days had
but limited capital, and wore not able
to accomplish much. During the last
two years several London and Toronto
companies, backed by ample capital,
have gone in for mining at Rossland,
and have Installed enormous plants on
Red Mountain; plants capable of raising
2,000 or 8,000 tons of oie per day from a
depth of 2,600 feet. The results have
been most satisfactory,"
"But it is sometimes said tn London
that there are only one or two good
mines In British Columbia."
"Common report In London Is wrong
There ars about 100 shipping mines in
B, C, and dividends have boon paid
amounting to about £1,000,000. But
most of tbe stockbrokers and dealers In
London do not know anything about
this Many of these mines art owned
and operated by Americans and Canadians, hence but little is heard of tbem
in London. But tbe developments taking place in British Columbia today are
of such magnitude that London will
soon be alive to the fact that, so far as
mineral wealth is concerned, one of the
rlchest-posslbly the richest—portions
of the British Empire is to be found oo
tbe Pacific Coast ol Canada At the
present moment a tremendous tight la
going on In Canada between two of the
greatest railways In Amorlea-theCeon.
dlan Pacific and the Great Northern—
who are both anxious to get tb« right
to build Into th* Immense!? rich mlnaral
have of course had some local difficulties in B.C, though nothing more
serious than is commonly met with in
new countries. The inining laws of
British Columbia are, upon the whole,
very equitable, though there has been
too great a tendency tipon the part of
the Government to change the mining
laws from time to time. Owing to the
representations of the mining interests
the Government agreed to appoint a
mining commission during the present
session of the Legislature, to inquire
fully into the working of the Mineral
Adt, with a view to making such
changes therein aB may be necessary."
SLOGAN   OKK   SHIPMENTS.
The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining
divisions for the year 1900 was, approximately, 85,000 tons. Since January 1

VICTORIA   DAT   SPOKT8.
New Denver was almost uninhabited
on May 24th. With the picnic at the
Bosun and the sports at Silverton the
attractions were too strong to admit of
many staying away, and the town
was deserted by all but the stay-at-
homes, and they were few. The weather
was as good as the clerk of that department could make it. At the picnic
grounds everything was in readiness
for a great day fer the young folk andc
at 9 o'clock the gailly decorated rigs
started to gather in the basket-* of good
things and the happy picnickers. Four
large wagon loads were taken down by
the Sunday School management; others
came by private conveyance, by boat or
walked. The day was. spent as all picnic days are spent—mainly in trying to
get away with tbe contents in the *rub
baskets—with enough exercise and fun
thrown in between meals to sharpen
the appeTife-5n9~quicken digeltionT
At the children's table upwards of 65
were fed, and at tho adults' 50 odd.
Sandon and Silverton were unable to
participate.
At Silverton a large crowd gathered
from New Denver and neighboring
camps to witness the field sports between teams from Sandon, Slocan, Silverton and New Denver. The ovents
of importance were a football match between Silverton and Slocan City, one
between Sandon and New Denver and
and game of baseball between New
Denver and Silverton. The match between Slocan City and the Silverton
team was little better than no game at
all, the Silverton players having it all
their own way from start to finish, winning by a score of 4 to 0. That between
Sandon and New Denver was the hottest
ever played on a Slocan field. As hard
individual players both teams were
fairly brilliant but the combination
work was ragged and ineffectual. Bach
side scored a goal. Ten minutes overtime waa allowed to play off the tlo, but
neither scored and Denver withdrew In
favor of Sandon. The final event he*
tweon tbe winners did not come off
owing to lack of time,
The baseball match was plainly a
"cooked" game from the start. The
umpiring was the rankest ever seen,
tbe game full of holes and unsatisfactory to everybody > The amount of "rag
chewing" done would keep a cotton
mill running full time for a year. 811*
verton played a "ringer"' who at one
time was a twlrler in the Northwest
league, over In Washington, and he
oould put tht Denver battert out at fast
at they came up. This fact, together
with the "foul" decision! of Umpire
Sproat, thut the boys from the Lucerne
out by a score of 14 to 35.
In the Caledonian sports Gusty of
Sandon took first In everything. The
program of the day's sporta was the best
that Silverfcm has had in any of it* celebrations and made the day a success,

By the organization of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Company, Limited, and tho amalgamation of the four companies operated by
the Miner Graves Syndicate in the
Boundary camp, tho biggest mining
company operating in tho camp has been
formed. Its capitalisation is$l5,O0O,COO
The four companies thut consolidated
are the Old Ironsides Mining Company,
capital 11,000,000; Knob Hill Gold Mining Company, Ltd., capital $1,500,000;

In addition to the smelter, water

the new company comet into possession
of the following ten crown granted
claims tn tbe Boundary camp: Old Ironsides, Victoria, Fourth of July, Aetna,

in the neighborhood of $800. It will require fully $500 to put it in shape for
traffic again. The volume of water
flowing down the creek was sufficient
to carry everything with it. Trees four
feet through were carried along and
tossed about like cork, and boulders
of enormous weight thundered down
the creek bed into the lake.
At Silverton a great amount of labor
has been expended by its citizens to
strengthen the embankment to prevent
Four Mile crejk breaking through and
taking its old channel through the
town. The bridge there is still safe and
no damage has been done by the water,
though the danger is not passed. From
Sandon come reports of some damage
done, and if the high water continues
the outlook for great destruction of
property is bright: Slocan City has also suffered from the flood, but not to
any great extent.

LETTER   FROM   JERKY.
There is a commandment that we
shall work six days and rest one, the
Lord Day. So, to my estimation, it is
as bad to be idle one of them six days
as" to work on Sunday, tLord Day);
Remember, boys, that you have to
work, whether you handle a pick or a
pen, keep stores or digging ditehes,you
must work. If you will look around
you will see that the men who are most
able to live the rest of their days without work are the men who work the
hardest. Don't be afraid to kill yourself, it is beyond your power. Sometimes they die, but it, is because they
quit at 6 and don't get home until 2 a.
in. It's the interval that kills. There
are young* men who don't work, but
the world is not ■ proud of them, and
know them only as old So and So's boys.
So find out what you want to be, and do
take off your coat and make a dust in
the world, and you will be happier and
your sleep brighter, but avoid to be a
Blugger or a gambler, for the sake of
your dear old mother.

THE   RED   KNIFE.
Mr. Edgar Wallace, correspondent of
tbe London Daily Mail, appeare to be
another and worthy "Tommy Atkins"
poet.   Here is a specimen of his work:
A tent that is pitched at the base;      .
A wagon that comes from the night;
A stretcher—and on it a case A
A surgeon, who's holding a light.
The infantry's bearing the brunt—
Oh, hark to the wind-carried cheer!
A mutter ol guns at the front;
A whimper of sobs at the rear.
And it's War! "Orderly, hold the light,
You can lay him down on thetable'so
Easily—gently! Thanks—you may go."
And it's war/but the part that is not
for show.
A tent, with a table athwart,
A table that's laid out for one;
A waterproof cover—and naught
But the limp mangled work of a gun.
A bottle that's stuck bv the pole,
A guttering dip in the neck,
The flickering light of a soul
On the wondering eyes of the Wreck:
And it's War! "Orderly, hold his hand;
I'm not going to hurt you, so don't be
afraid.
A ricochet!   God! Miatamess it has
made. .    , 7
And it's War; and a very unhealthy
trade.
The clink of a stopper and glass;
A aigh, as the chloroform drips:
A trickle of—what? on the grass,
And bluer and bluer the lips.  .
The lashes have hidden the stare;
A rent, and tho clothes fall away;
A touch, and the wound is laid bare;
A cut, and the face has turned grey.
And it's War! "Orderly, tak« it out;
It's hard for his child, and it's rough
on his wife."
There might have been — sooner — a
chance for his life.
But it's War!   And—"Orderly, clean
this knife." •
TREMENDOUS   GROWTH  OF TM
COPPER   INDUSTRY.
The marvelous growth of the copper,
industry within the past century, and
particularly within the past decade,may
best be exemplified by a comparison
between the production at the beginning of the last century and at its close.
In 1800 the output of the copper mines
of the world was about 18,000,000 pounds.
In 1900 the production was oyer 1,000,-
000,000 pounds. During the entire
century the copper mines of the world
produced 20,000,000,000 pounds. The
United States produces more than one-
half of the world's output at present,
the production for the present year being estimated ; at ! about t ,600,000,000
pounds.
While the United States has become
the greatest producer, it has also become
r
■j9*.4
the largest consumer by reason of the
enormous growth of electrical and
kindred industries. But this country
is yet the great source of supply for
Europe. We "exported, according to
the United States Bureau of Statistics,
888,121,071 pounds of copper in 1900,
with a value of 155,291,187, and during
that year the copper mines of the United
States paid over all expenses 840,000,-
000. A comparison of tho copper exports in 1891 when the value amounted
to only $4,614,597, with tho exports of
last year show An increase of more than
150,000,000 in a decade. Michigan,
Montana, Arizona and California are
the principal producing sections, Michigan leading with its large production
from the Lake Superior copper belt
Its mines alone produced, in the ten
years including 1890 and 1899, copper
with a value of 1155,878,718, and paid
in dividends during that time 147,982,*
000.
The groat and growing demand and
the increase In price within the past
few years have stimulated the copper
mining industry everywhere, and in
California and Arizona new discoveries
are being made, and a groat deal of
capital has been put to work In both
sections developing properties which
have been acquired by heavy operators
In Canada, Mexico, Chili, Peru and
other place* on the continent there it
an actual boom In the copper regions.
Cheaper nwthoda of extracting the
metal and treating arm containing but
a email permits^ of it are bringing
properties Into prominence which were
considered unprofitable to work heretofore, and tho ever increasing Installs*
tion of Urge electric power transmission
plant*, building ol electric railways, the
constant extension of telegraph and
telephone lines, etc., will always Insure
a good and large demand for American
copper at home ami abroad,*--'Frisco

Queen Victoria is also dear to the
hearts of many Canadians. But that
endearment is a tribute to circumstances
over which the good queen had no control. Had Victoria never lived Britons
would have idolized some other sovereign just the same. It waa not for
her achievements that she was worshipped, for Victoria did nothing that
was not out-shone by a thousand acts of
less illustrious countrywomen. It was
not Victoria.but the living embodiment
of the system of which she was the
symbol that the empire revered. This
reverence became personal only through
association. Had our late lamented
sovereign been unknown that tever-
ence would have fastened itself on the
next in line,
To tear down the statue of Sir John
Macdonald in order to erect iii its stead
a statue of Queen Victoria would be
equivalent to a declaration that Queen
Victoria was greater than Sir John. Tt
would mean that title outranks worth
it would indicate that the elected chief
of the people is second to the hereditary
incumbent of rank; that the people are
inferior to the monarch.
It is too late in time to hope that
Canadians will take kindly to a precept
such as this.—Sandon Paystreak.
COUNTRY   HOTELS.
The hotels in the small towns throughout the prorince are capable of considerable improvement, not only from a
sanitary point of view but in their
general get-up. The cause of temperance and the public health would be
equally benefited by the Government
insisting on a higher standard of purity
in the liquors sold behind the bar of all
hotels. An inspection with this end in
view is particularly necessary in the
smaller places where competition is not
active enough to protect the public
from sour beer, doctored whiskey and
other questionable cordials. TvVe do

When he departed for a ehort vacation, a Missouri editor left a minister
in charge of,his paper. He had been

when a letter came from a "way-

If I get any more such letters I will
come down and maul h  out of
you." The minister answered: "I
have been trying to maul that thing
out of the editor for ten years, and if
you really come down and maul it
out of him, then, ray dear sir, I have
twenty members of my church you
can operate on.''—-'Frisco Apert.

Adam stole second. When Isaac met
Rebecca at the well she was walking

a good many times when he beat the
Philistines. Moses made his first run

made a base hit when he killed Abel.
Abraham made a sacrifice. The

that. It might sell papers, but no girl
can be permitted to breathe out her life

and tried all the early part ot the
night to get a poker game, filling in

Anally woke op and had not even

•ticking out of his vest pooket, he was
to disgusted with the lack of enter-
j prise upon tht part of oar chlsena
; that he shook the town forever. We

have relieved him but they were not
on deck last night or were searching

PKTKOLKUM   FIELDS   OF   B.   O.
Since the progress which. is being
made upon the oil fields in Jofferson
and Whitman counties in the state of
Washington and the success attendant
urx>n the oil borings tn California much
attention has been paid to the oil strata
in British Columbia. The oil-bearing
shales and sandstones apparently exist
and their indications have been well
known to prospectors for many years
past in two belts, the one lying along
the valley of the Fraser as far as Hope
and extending in a direct line east from
that point through the Tulameen and
Similkameen districts almost without
interruption, as far as is known, up to
the Gold Range. Beyond that point
Dr. Selwyn, the eminent geologist, has
traced the strata clear across the
Rockies.
To the north exists a similar belt
Tunning apparently somewhat parallel
to the first, indications of which have
been located in the Cassiar and Cariboo
•districts."
Most of these indications are, however, so remote from lines of transportation and from places where the oil
product would be marketed that the
petroleum is practically valueless. This
does not apply, td that portion of the
strata which, it is maintained, lies west
of Hope along the valley of the Fraser.
It Is true that the nature of the country
is principally alluvial and alluvium as
a general rule cannot contain petroleum, that deposit not being found within
it. But, it is declared that if such oil
strata lie below the alluvial soil and the
oil is pressed up from beneath to the
surface of the substratum, it will penetrate through the loose alluvial forma*
_, tion.aad.c-omeJoJhe-aurlacejofjthejoil.
This is the general theory of those in
this city who have interested themselves
in British Columbia petroleum.
Further there is much ground, even
right, In the city, where bedrock is
observed, as upon False Creek. Oil
indications have been noted in Stanley
park and in one or two other directions
in the vicinity of the city.
Bat it Is in Mew Westminster and in
its neighborhood that the indications of
oil are strongest. No less than three
places were examined during the past
week with favorable results At North
Vancouver there are also other petroleum Indications, but it is considered by
those interested, and their number here
Is dally growing larger, that the petrol*
eum industry, should it ever come to
anything, will chiefly centre around the
Royal City.
Here, along the banks of the Fraaer,
In contiguity to the railroads, the quel*
tlona of transportation and of a market
are hardly likely to hamper tbe growth
of an industry, which, should it take
root In this province, and in this vicinity, will do much for Vancouver.
Other district*, such as the Cassiar,
Cariboo, Tulameen and Similkameen,
are directly contrtbutary to this place,
will have to await their development
until the advent of oxpedltloui and
economical method! of transportation.
The two latter placet should, however,
here but Utile time to wait.
At the preaent day In California there
are upward* of 5,000,000 barrels of oil
being exported yearly, Thia is not
large considering tbe output of the
•altera flelds where last year Ave times
that amount was put out, bnt It ts enormous when It Is ramembered that only
a few years ago the product of tbe oil
wells, started in 1876, was only about
36,000 lo 86,000 barrels annually.
Oil was known to exist In California
In the early sixties, hut It was not until
1876 that any boring was done and a
few wells were started, some of which
am autod to he flowing to this day.
California was much more Intarested, In
the early days spoken ol, in the explor*
atlon of the gold districts and oil was
neglected. Even when the gold fover
had NOinawlmt ahatad tho general ten*
dency of the gold seekers, apart from
(ins cum 1*11 leaguing in ior u«ep muting,
Mtfc4.*«.iti<  i.i »tv i. iiWi   iWu*.   (.1411   tO
examinft tbe other latent resources of a
rich country
Those left behind, (Specially in Los
Ain_el«ii, were much utor* hound un in
tbe auecess of tbrir cattlo and fruit
culture than in the possibilities of oil
undei the surface at thatpoint,although
indications were plentiful. Still when
at last adventurous spirits began boring
and oil was ftruelc and fortune! made,
tho staid farmers of Southern California
began to tak* a very llvi»lv Interest
indeed, with thp result that there are
upwards uf :>&*i oil companion regts*
tared at the i>re»«»t day in Ban Fran
eiseo.
At a later date <..! mikttthm were
dlworeretl to he p.a;t((ut tu the umntr-y
lying between Walla Walla and Spokane
and about six months ago, after the
ground had been thoroughly prospected
and proved; companies were formed ana
standard rigs got .upon the ground.
Within the past month the borings
nave been commenced and aa the calculated depth is not more than 1,500 to
2,000 feet, the eiaht to twelve inch hole
which is being bored should, with ordinary luck, be into the oil strata by
the end of July next.
Slightly later in date the Hoquam
fields in Jefferson county, about 65
miles directly west from Olympia, were
discovered and at the present moment
there are rigs being brought upon the
ground and boring will probably commence before the end of the current
month. This will mean that oil should
be reached within ninety davs. Already
some four to six million dollars of capital have been invested in Washington
alone by the capitalists of that state in
its oil schemes; for Washington is declared to be by the oil experts a greater
field than California inself 7
The real attention of the oil people
is, however, being turned ,to British
Columbia where the oil fields surpass
in extent those of Washington and California combined. From various causes,
partly apathy, similar to that which
afflicted the good farmers of Los Angeles, and partly lack of transportation
facilities, these fields have been utterly
neglected although well known to a
score of prospectors in this very city
alone. Indeed there has recently been
formed a company in Vancouver for the
purpose of exploiting an oil well in
Whitman county. No company has as
yet been incorporated ti» exploit the oil
which is stated to exist in the valley of
the lower Fraaer where transportation
is near, at hand, but this will not much
longer be the case as there are more
than one representative of the enterprising people to the south upon the
ground.
One circumstance more than any other
which has aided in giving prominence
to the recent oil ventures is the impetus
given to the industry by the discoveries
in oil heating which have been made
within the past twelve months. Wbat
is burned is of course the crude petroleum or the residum after refining. In
Russia the railway system is practically run by aid of petroleum fuel,which,
it is claimed, is a quicker steam generator and at the same time can be carried
in less space than its rival coal. Such
cojdltigM__are prevallng to a lesser

manipulation by which petroleum can
be applied to produce iron and steel
direct from the ores, cheaper than is
possible by the use of coke. Petroleum
is already being successfully and economically used in ore roasting,in pyritic
smelting and in remelting pig iron for
casting. 7"
The Scotch regard for the "Saw-
bath" is amusingly illustrated in the
fpllowing story by Mr. Tally; M. P.:
A friend of his was playing billiards
one wet Thursday at an inn in Kir-
cudbrlghtshire. Suddenly the landlord entered, very drunk, and insisted on their stopping. He wife
afterwards explained that it was his
habit to get drunk on Sundays, but,
mistaking the day, he had got drunk
on Thursday instead, and from force
of habit, believing it was Sunday, he
had been shocked at billiards being
played,        ' 7 :7 ■ ' 7:
