At the convention of Slocan

resign as such candidate, and such

and
Whereas, the McBride_ govern-

the date of the elections from the

Resolved, that we, the Liberal
delegates for Sloean riding in convention assembled this 15th day of
September, 1003, do not nominate
a candidate at the ensuing elections.
And be it further
Revolved, that, while we affirm
that the Liberal Party is the best
friend of the working man, and
while we heartily approve of
many of the planks of the platform
of the Labor candidate for this riding, wo view with great apprehension that clause in said platform
which provides that the resignation
of the said candidate shall bc
placed in tho hands of a committee
of the convention which nominated
him, as wo consider such a condition unconstitutional and fraught
with great danger to constitutional
government.

gravel is as rich as it is at present
thought to be, there will not be
much surface left,
The first discovery of the gold
bearing gravel was made in the
centre of the town, and after the
different prospectors who were in
town at the time had made an examination of the pans taken they
quickly scattered to look out locations for themselves. Along the
main river itself, placer operations
have been conducted for years, but
it was not thought that the sand
and gravel even to the' base of the
mountain was also gold bearing.
What the practical value of the
discovery will be yet remains to be
proven, as work has not progressed
far enough to tell. None are down
to bedrock yet, and the gold has
been so fine, although plentiful,
that it is difficult to save it with
the, crude apparatus yet employed.
At the river bank half a dozen
cradles and rockers liave been
built and with these the qwners are
hoping to reap a rich harvest.

enough has been done to show that
the project should prove most profitable. A stream of water has
been turned in from the river which
supplies enough force towasli down

The party of Philadelphia capitalists who are interested in this placer

It is reported that an important
mining deal is likely to go through
early next week 6n a property
twelve miles up the creek, owned
by several Swedes, the purchasers
being a Nelson syndicate, This
claim, the Spyglass, is considered
by many to be the richest proposition of the camp, tho ore being so
rich that it is possible to pack it
out on men's backs ami yet make
big profits. Tho values are principally in silver and gold. One
-seven inch leatl carries 4,000 ounces
of silver to the ton, and 8500 in
gold, and the main lead is also very
rich. The ore is hy far the richest
ever struck in this part of the
country, and when a trail has been
cut in to the property ho that it can
be reached easily it will canst a
groat stir among mining men.
The North Star mine in East
Kootenay has 40 men on the payroll, all working on   development.

the Croftou works, Vancouver
Island.
The ground is being surveyed at
the Hunter V. mine, near Ymir,
for the building of a tramway,
which it is hoped to have installed
before the snow flies.
A strike of high grade galena
and zinc blende has been made in
the 400-foot level of the Ymir. It
is reported to be worth over $100 to
the ton. At this mine the tram is
to be extended to the No. 2 tunnel.
Manager Kirby of the War Eagle
thinks Rossland has seen its darkest

reforms in the mining legislation of
British Columbia cannot much
longer be delayed, and with it will
begin a new era in the history of
British Columbia. The province
cannot be further repressed. It
has a mining area of 1100 by 400
miles including the richest part of
the Rocky mountain ranges.
Some day this will be dotted with
mining communities drawing their
supplies from the great area of
agricultural lands adjoining. This
province is an empire, although few
men at present realize tlie fact."

There is no cause for men to be
idle in the mining camps of B. C.
In the Slocan there is a demand for
more men, and in the Boundary
the shortage appears to be even
greater.
The Phoenix Pioneer says:
"There is no cause for men to be
idle_in-iheJ3oundauv_country—this-
fall and winter, for the simple
reason that the forces at all the
properties are gradually being increased. Assistant Manager Flum-
erfelt, of the Granby mii.es, said to
the Pioneer this week: "We could
use 100 more men today if we could
get thein, but men seem to be scarce.
As you know, we have been running with le«s men than we actually
need for a month or two, and now
we wish to secure the full number.
We have sent word to Vancouver.
Victoria, Nelson, Rossland and
other places, and hope soon to have
all we need. A number liave come
in this week, but we have places
for a good many more at standard
wages, both at the mines and at the
smelter. When we get the fifth
and sixth furnaces in operation fit
the smelter we will need to still
further increase our lone."

NEWS   OF THE   WORLD
had been removed to  Sault Ste Marie,  and the continent British cabinet minis-
Ticked Over the Wires During Many Days From Every
Point of the Compass.
London, September 9.—The revelations I vantages obviously entitle her.  This iner-
contained in the report of the royal commission on the conduct of the war in
South Africa have filled all England with
consternation and indignation. Of the
three volumes just issued much has been
suppressed "in the public interest," but
enough remains to justify apparently the
opinion freely expressed that the war office
at the outbreak of the trouble was in a
state of incompetence which is nothing
short of amazing. According to the testimony of general Nicholson, the intelligence section of the war office relating to
South Africa was run before the war on
the two men aud a boy principle, with two
officers and one clerk. The treasury,
against the united recommendation of the
war, office, refused any increase. Hence
it is not surprising that, when England
went 'o war, there was no effective map
whatever of the Orange Five State, the
Transvaal, or Natal. To quote lord Kitchener's own testimony, according to the
official memorandum, l,a field intelligence
department had to be created from the
very beginn'ng."
XO INTELLIGENCE DEPARTMENT.
General Nicholson is responsible for the
information that there was practically no
valid connect':--: n b itw een the intelligence
department and the defense committee of
the cabinet. Colonel Altham testified
that every Boer gun was known and
traced after the war. The British local
defense scheme' was, however, based on
au inadequate force. It was merely that
generals should report how they could
make the best use of what troops they
had, and that experts by desire should
• prepare the plan of a scheme of mobilization iu the early summer. But the government would not vote the extra necessary money until it was forced to do so.
This was the testimony of general sir
P. Stopford, and, from the official memorandum and colonel Altham's testimony,
it is apparent that the marquis of Lans-
dowue knew that there were forty-eight
thousand mounted Boers waiting to oppose the British. Yet, almost without
exception, infantry were sent. When finally the mobilization of the first army
corps was ordered it was so late that it
was not possible for general sir Redvers
Builer to be in a position to take tlie field
until the end of December. The>Boers,
however invaded Natal in the second
week in October. The hasty mobilization
on the part of the British caused disorganization. ,
Nearly all the military witnesses, notably general Kelly-Kenny, lay stress on
the fact that the representations of the
commander-in-chief did not meet with
sufficient compliance. Viscount Wolseley
--lays-greafc-stress-outhisand-ou-the-way-
lord Lansdowne treated him aud his advice in 1890, when he was absolutely disregarded, the secretary of state for war
absolutely refusing to sanction even the
most urgently needed expenditures. This
refusal delayed the army corps, nor did
the war office send out the reinforcements
he urged. Lord Roberts also condemns
the initial preparations iu South Africa.
MANY OIT-'ICEKS WOKTHLKSS. »
A largo number of militia officers hud
never boon traiiied at nil, according to
major general Borrett, while lord Lovat
stated that each regiment practically Iuul
officers who wore so completely worthless
that thoy could not bo taken on a trek.
They used to bo loft iu different headquarters for superintending baggage and
stores.
Vico admiral sir R. Harris tells tho following delightful story: "The confusion,
of course, was tremendous, owing to the
war all through tho colony. I nuiy say,
for instance, that I sent a truck loud of
one hundred and fifty lyddite shells to
lord Methuno, which was absolutely lost
for three weeks,"
Utter confusion existed initially and
through the course of tho campaign. Sir
Redvers Builer said ho went without any
general instructions whatever and received none on his arrival in South
Africa. Sir J, Ardiigh declares the war
office always contemplated a withdrawal
to the south of tho Tngelit on the outbreak of the war, and never thought for a
moment of Lndysn.ith lx'ing a defensible
placo. Yet the bulk of tho stores in that
town wero poured in from Oetolier 7tli,
throe days liefore the war broke out, iuul
it was then impossible to have removed
them.

tia is not merely a matter of tradition, it
is almost a matter of religion. For a majority of the faithful believe that God has
given the land to the children of the prophet and the sea to the Giaours, infidel
dogs that they are.
Such is the teaching of Islam. Al Mak-
kari, a Mohammedan writer of authority,
says in his "History of Mohammedan
Dynasties in Spain," "When the Moslems
achieved the conquest of Egypt the Khalif
Omar-Ibu-ul-Khattah, who was then tho
commander (of the faithful) wrote to his
lieutenant Amru-Ibp-ul-Aas, asking him
for a description of tho sea. The answer
sent, him by Aumt was as follows: 'The
sea is a great pool, which some inconsiderate people furrow, looking like worms
on logs of wood.' Ou receipt of this answer the Khalif forbade the Moslems to
navigate the seas, and so it was as long as
the Khalif lived uo Arab dared to go
aboard a boat unless he hail previous leave,
and transgression of the prohibition was
severely punished."
From tho timo of the first naval engagement between Moslem and Christian,
at the time of the siege of Constantinople, when four big galleys of Greeks
and Genoese put to rout the 145 ships of
the Turks, to the infinite chagrin and
furjvof Mahomet II, down to the present
day, the Turkish navy has been impotence
personified. Iu vain sultans following in
the wake of Mahomet II, who rode out
into the shallow water brandishing his
sword, shouting terms of Turkish ob-
liquy against his naval commanders and
ordering the captain pasha to bo impaled,
have tried to mobilize a fleet, conduct a
'successful naval campaign or even carry
ordinary commerce, unless a Christian
captain was at the head of the enterprise.
Turkey has no mercantile marine. All
commerce beyond the waters of the Black
sea or Levant is carried on by the Greeks
or other Europeans. Even the ferry
boats running through the Bosphorus and
Golden Horn, though under the control
of Turkish capitalists, are run by European captains and engineers, aud the
boats themselves are all made iu Europe,
mostly on the Thames. There are, of
course, small craft owned aud manned by
Ottoman subjects, Moslem and non-Moslem, but they are only equipped for short
trips.
Great, black, unseaworthy hulks, idly
rocking and rotting in the port of the
Golden Horn, are what is left of the
beautiful Turkish cruisers bought,
twenty-five years ago by the sultan Aziz.
Long ago their boilers were sold by order
of Hassan Pasha, and their armament, is
now completely out of date. Beside these
Turkey has a few so-called seagoing ironclads. But they learned during the
'Graeco-Tui'kish-warrwhen-thejF-stuok-fast-'
in the Dardanelles, that it was better for
them not to try to go to sea. And she has
eight smaller ironclads for coast defense,
and a fair-sized fleet of gunboats and a
score of torpedo boats, including two
Nordenfeldt submarines.
This imposing fleet is manned by conscripts forced into service for a term of
eight years, including three on leave and
four years in the reserve. The mariues
aro indolent, uncleanly, and absolutely
without discipline. They are regularly
exercised on land, each morning finding
their blue-uniformed ranks winding in
and out of tho admiralty buildings to the
shrill music of bugles and a bewildering
clatter of orders, which, being issued by
the captain, pass on to the uext in authority, and eventually through a long lino of
subalterns reach the jackies, along with a
choice assortment of epithet and complimentary, as "Jackass!" "Donkey!" "Why
don't you do this?" "Aro you a fool and
the son of a fool that you do that?" etc.
It is small wonder that at the end of eight
years' service they aro utterly untrained
m the habits anil knowledge necessary to
the successful use of the terrific engines
of modern maritime warfare—particularly
as they have none of those torriblo modern weapons to practice with, Of such
men as these Turkey hits a pence force of
15,000 men, the numlier lieing doubled in
timo of war.
The demoralization of what once promised to lm a fairly effective Turkish navy
was the work of Hassan Pasha, tho Turkish minister of marine, who died the
other day. Hassan was a sailor, but he
wits also a coward and a thief. For over
twenty years he held his jiositioi. while
ministries rose and fell, boasting that the
sultan dure not remove him, and apparently with reason, since while other olli-
I cial heads tumbled one hy one into the
Want to Improve Ireland's Condition.
[Associated Press.]
London, September 11 .—Another conference looking to the, improvement of the
condition of Ireland will be called shortly.
Captain Shaw E. Taylor, who was secretary to the recent, landlord and tenants'
conference in Dublin, which was instrumental in securing the Irish Land Bill,
proposes to invite the representatives of
the Orangemen, Roman Catholics, Protestants, and the hea'ds of educational institutions in Ireland to meet in Dublin
and confer together with the purpose of
finding a common ground on which all
may stand, thus ending the religious differences in connection with education,
which has lasted for centuries and which
has beeu responsible for many of Ireland's
difficulties,
Ask for a Postponement.
[Assoeinled Cross.1
Washington,   September   12.—Russia
has requested permission of China to postpone her evacuation of one of the frontier
provinces of Manchuria for several months
after October 8th, the date fixed for the
general evacuation of Manchuria.
Minister Conger cables the state department this fact, and the matter has been
referred to secretary Huy, at the secretary's summer home iu New Hampshire,
for consideration. The state department
apparently is not concerned over Russia's
request, as it is pointed out the province
is a small one and tho postponement is
only for a short time.
The Prince May Not Attend.
[Associated Cress-'.]
Boston, September 13,—No steps whatever have been taken in connection with
tho frequently reported contemplated visit
of the prince of Wales to America. No
invitation has been tendered to the prince,
and neither the United States embassy,
the British commissioners to the St. Louis
exposition, nor C. T. Watson, the secretary of the commission, have any expectation that the visit will occur. Nothing is
being done, even in a preliminary unofficial way, towards securing the prince's
presence at St. Louis.
Train Robbers Sentenced.
[Associated l'ress.l
El Paso, Texas, September 12.—The
Americans who robbed a Mexican Central
train and the Wells-Fargo express at Ber-
mejillo, Durango, July 2;ird, 1002, have
been sentenced at Maphni to 15 years imprisonment and fined $1000 each. The
men were Bill West, alias Ingram; Lee
Smith, alias Whitaker, and Jnmes Paris.
ters came to London today to attend, the
cabinet meetiug, which was; regarded as
marking the most important phase in the
recent political history of the United Kingdom. The Times voices public sentiment
iu saying it was "a great occasion," more
important even than the historic meeting
when home rule was supported most. For
the main issue today is "The Unity of the
Empire." Not since the fateful day when
the cabinet framed an answer to president
Kruger's ultimatum had such crowds
gathered around Downing street. From
early morning loiterers assembled here in
the hope of catching a glimpse of political
leaders. However, it was announced that
the cabinet would not meet until ii o'clock,
and the spectators dwindled. Mr. Balfour, who arrived iu London from Scotland yesterday, went to Downing street
early. Treasury officials were posted all
the morning with Mr. Balfour's secretary,
and going over the statistics on wliich the
cabinet is supposed to base its decision for
or against, free trade. Mr. Chamberlain,
who was the. central figure in today's proceedings, left Birmingham accompanied
by his wife. A large crowd bade them
farewell at the railroad station. On their
arrival here Mrs. Chamberlain went to
their Loudon home and Mr. Chamberlain
proceeded to the colonial ollice.
Were Once Paid for Their Services.
In former times members of the British
parliament, who serve now entirely without, pay, were rewarded for their services
by the constituencies which they represented However, the member took his
reward more often in goods than in specie,
a not surprising matter, seeing that money
was not the common possession of those
from whom he levied tribute. The last
payment freely , made of which there is
record is that which Andrew Marvel received. It was a barrel of herrings. In
1157? parliament formally discontinued
payment of itself, but the practice had
gradually been lapsing for some timo, for
ten years earlier Samuel Pepys had lamented the disappearance of the paid
member, "so the parliament is become a
company of men unable to give account
for the interest of the place..thej* serve
for." The old paid member, was very
much the servant of the house. He flared
be absent only by permission of the speaker, on penalty of a fine equal to about
:$:2r>0, in addition to-the stoppage of his
wages; while imprisonment was at times
substituted. Further, the members who
appeared at the house later than 8 a.m.,
aud so missed prayers, were penalized,
uot even the speaker being exempt from
the order as to attendance or payment of
penalty in case of remissness.

The rash to this camp still continues,
two coaches being required to bring in the
passengers.
During the past week W. B. Pool and
J. J, Young closed a deal for the Swedes
claims, situated about \y2 miles from the
Lucky Jack, on the east side of Poplar
creek. The purchase price is said to be
§50,000, with a substantial payment down
and the balance iu 30 and 60 days. Development work is to be commenced at
once, and a stamp mill will be in operation before December.
Rutherford and Stevenson, representing
Philadelphia capital, have bought the
Athwood group, just west of tho Marquis
and Gilbert.
Now gold strikes are reported on Canyon creek, eight miles from here, also 10
miles below Trout Lake, on the north side
of the lake.
| Building operations continue as rapidly
as lumber can bo obtained. The Kaiser
and .Tacobson hotels are under way.
Archer of Kaslo has opened a hardware
storo. A uqw restaurant has been opened
in a tent, and the Smock hotel will open
this week, William Schnell has sold his
barber shop to Al Gregory. Williams and
Gavin are building a blacksmith shop on
their lots. Billy Schnell has opened his
hotel and Baillie's brokerage office is
nearly completed.
Several representatives of capital have
visited the camp .this week.
Trout Lake Topic: On Wednesday next
the Lucky Boy will send to the smelter a
carload of high-grade ore. The shipment,
it is expected will run away up, because
it has been carefully sorted. During the
process of getting the shipment together
test assays ran on an average of $500 to
the ton. Mr. Stead, the mauager, says,
however, that he does not think he will
be paid at that rate, but he is confident it
will run considerably over $300. The last
shipment, which was unsorted, went $814
to the ton, so Mr. Stead's prediction is
pretty nearly sure of fulfillment.
Nate Lay and Sid Graham have discovered a four-foot vein of gold-bearing
quart/, about half a mile from the railway
between Canyon and Lynch creeks. The
samples of the strike they brought down
all contain free gold. Gold has been
found now on an almost continuous chain
of claims from the Second Crossing to the
foot of the lake. Between Gerrard and
Trout Lake gold has been found at one
point about three miles from Trout Lake
and it will be very stiwigetf this season

Embarassing".
A young Oklahoma man went to
church with his best girl. Both were
quite handsome and modest. When
llie collection was being taken up the
young man explored liis pockets and
whispered to tlie young lady: "1 havn't
got a cent;  I changed   my pants."    In
searching in her pockets, and, finding
nothing, blushed a rosy red as sho
stammered: "I*ni in the same predicament."
SQUIRE
Stoney Rock, and Murphy creeks, and
conducted to the concentrator by a flume.
Sixty or seventy men will be employed the.meantime the youiifj lady had been
on the mill in construction, and the work
will be rushed as rapidly as possible.
While the concentrator may uot be ready
for operation by the first of the year, it*
certainly will be in operation within four
to six months. While the plans are for
a 200-ton plant, there is every reason to
suppose that as soon as it has been in successful operation it will be doubled if
uot quadrupled in capacity without the
slightest unnecessary delay. The erection of the mill will be completed earlier
thiin would ordinarily have been the case
by reason of the fact that the company
had the timbers sawn some weeks ago,
and tlio material is now thoroughly
seasoned and ready to put into place.
Moreover, the machinery for tho plant
has been ordered from tho manufacturers
at various plants, and arrangements mado
for the stonework required in the foundations. A special effort will bc made to
have the premises roofed in before the
snow flies and the outlook for the, accomplishment of this seems to be bright.
Blairmore (Alberta) Times, 12th: The
Frank mine of the Canadian-American
Coal & Coke Company has again resumed
its place at the head of the list as a shipper of > coal from this section, at present
sending out some 400 tons of iirst-class
(jpal per day. Tho three openings on the
coal measure are all now in a position to
ship steadily. At the old workings the
main entry is again in excellent shape,
and with the installing of the new fan
will be in shape to produce fully as much
coal as it was before the slide. Within a
few days the new fan, which is a six foot
Murphy, wiil be placed in position and
then the mine will be well ventilated, and
the former heavy shipments of coal resumed.

tlio Second Crossing aud Fish creek, a distance of 50 miles.
It is reported here that the people owning the Triune are considering a proposition to extend their tram line across the
summit to the lake. This proposition appeals to them, owing to the natural difficulties in the way of maintaining the liue
in its present location. Tho proposition
of bringing the ore to tho lako presents no
insuperable difficulties—in fact it would
bo both a wise and an economical move.
From tho Triuuo to the lako by tram the
distance would bo only six or seven miles,
while bj- the present route it is thirteen,
and owing to slides the tram lino can only
bo worked during the summer months.
By tho other route tho property could be
worked twelve months of the year and is
free from slides.
Tho Silvor Cup has now stacked nt Trout
Lako something over 200 tons of oro. Owing to tlio shipments of machinery and
supplies coming in every other dny tho
two big warehouses of tho Western Mines
Company nre kept ou the overflow, consequently tho oro hns had to Imi piled outside. A shipment of fir timber squaring
about 18 inches each came in the other
day from Whatcom for the chlorination
plant, now in process of installation at
Fivo-niilo. Tlm brick is coining in nnd
the different swtions of Iho mortars nnd
furnaces arrival some time ago. . The corrugated iron roofing for the mill forms
part of today's shipment. Tl|eliit'gi'qnnii-
tities of machinery piled at the wharf
gives a pretty fair idea of the size of the
works being built at Five-mile.
A purly of men leave this week to re-
open the Black Prince pro(>crty, near the

The Liberals squeezed themselves into
Taylor's committee rooms last Saturday
and four speakers filled tho air with
words. The News reported an audience
of 237. Iu 1900, when the Provincial Party used tho same room, 150 people filled it
to suffocation,.but then the Liberals may
have shrunk until less space accommodates them. John Hamilton was chairman, and opened the meeting with railroad promptness, but without prayer.
F. M. Black discussed the affairs of state
in a vigorous manner,'and painted a beautiful heaven for this province provided
Sidney Stockton Taylor was elected. He
handed Sidney several lines of sweet
praise,.and.said_tha the had-no- str ings on-
him. Probably he meant that the Nelson
Liberal god would buy his pants in Montreal, if he wished, without paying any attention to the local establishments that
have dono so much to make the men of
Nelson. Mr. Black also stated that Si d-
ney would not go to Victoria with the object of personal gain, but would bo a loser
financially, aud was a man whom wo
could trust and respect. Perhaps Mr.
Black was partially in jest when ho uttered those words. Who over heard of n
lawyer losing anything by being sentenced
to tho legislature? Ask tho Western
Federation of Miners at Kossland
what they think about Taylor's weakness for losing anything. Law is a
profession and lawyers live upon
tho mistakes and troubles of tho human
family. Somo of them aro liars, and will
squeeze every dollar out of a client that it
is possible to get. Is it reasonable to suppose that Taylor isnn angel in n profession
black with intrigue, and bloated with the
spoils skimmed from the pot of human
troubles? Canada is enrsed with too many
lawyers in its legislative halls.
William Ebbs is a Socialist—one of the
dreamy kind, Ho has a poet's nature, and
litis dwelt many an hour with Homer,
Virgil, Burns, and other dead composers
u' beautiful imaginations. Ebbs is nji
eloquent speaker, and has the (Ire within
him that touches the sonl and drives it
above practical matters. Ebbs believes in
public ownership, afar off pmliuhly, as
did the .Socialists of Nelson when it came
to wanting public ownership of the electric light. Mr. Ebbs, judging from his
How of oratory, is evidently in love wilh
Sidney Stockton, and looks upon the little
lawyer as the liero of a poet's dream
dressed in a cheap Montreal suit of clothes.
However, (he little god may wear Ebb"*
shoos.

This picture represents a nightly
scene in Nelson and shows that the old5
old story is ever new. The young man
is happy because his best girl fans the
delicately perfumed atmosphere, while
he sits serenely, well knowing that his
immaculate shirt bosom was done up
at the
Kootenay Steam Laundry
and will not break even if ihe situation
becomes critical.

their hands in admiration.
home. A plant for this purpose
lias been erected in the United
States, and the shipment of ore
from the Malayan peninsula was
•'about to begin when the department of commerce and labor received word through the reports of
the United States consul at the
Straits Settlements that an export
duty .of $30 per picul (133 pounds)
had been levied on tin ore exported,
the purpose of this export tax on
the ore being to prevent its exportation in the natural state and to
retain for the people of the Malayan
states the profits of smelting.
Whether this will terminate the
project of importing the oro into
the United States for smelting cannot yet be told. The Malayan states
now produce more than half of the
tin which enters into the commerce
of the world, tlieir total shipments
iu 1901 being 50,000 tons out of a
total of 89.000 tons entering the
markets of the world in that year.
It is interesting to note that three-
fourths of the world's tin conies
from parts of the world uot far
distant from the Philippine Islands,
and this fact, coupled with the
growing demand for tin in the
United States may lead to easeful
examination as to the possibility of
tin production in the Philippines.

monthly dividends since January,
1902, and who could sell his stock
now for $15 per share; or of the
many millionaires who have made
money by judicious and plucky
investments in mines and mining
stocks?
The secret ia that people who
lose money in any business, as well
as mining, make a noise, while the
people who make money are not
advertising the fact.
Notwithstanding the many fail
ures and ill-advised investments,
statistics prove that there is more
money made in a given time in the
raining business than in any other
iu which man is engaged. But
speculators should remember that
mining, when legitimately carried
on, is a business, not a gamble, and
should be investigated as any other
business would be. "Be sure you
are right, then go ahead," may be
applied to mining with a great
deal of meaning and force.—The

the Australian gold excitement in
1852. The nugget weighed 2,195
ounces, nearly 183 pounds, and
contained only a small' quantity of
gangue. The nugget was placed
on exhibition at the first Crystal
Palace Exposition in 1853, and the
owners took in thousands of
pounds from curious sight-seers.
After the exposition the nugget
was bought by the Bank of England
for £8376, 10s, 6d. At the time
the big nugget was found the
Ballarat district was overrun by
bushrangers and Napier and his
partners did not dare to let a hint
drop of their phenomenal good fortune. They buried the big lump
of gold in their tent and proceeded
in their diggings as usual. Later,
after declaring that their claim was
valueless, the men packed the big
nugget in a bullock cart and made
for tlie coast, where they took ship
for England.

cost Charles Faber 8I1TTn~~Tf arch,
1891, were worth 820,000 in July,
1903. The stock was considered
valueless when he purchased it.
It was the stock of the "lloyal
Gold Mining Co.", which owns the
Song Bird and Gray Eagle mines
at Silver Cliff, Montana, which
have become very valuable properties.
Faber became insolvent, and
listed among his assets, it is said,
"A mining interest at Silver Cliff,
Mont." The receiver sold this
interest to J. F. George who sold
his interest to F. F. Wilde; Wilde
soltl it to his wife and she sold it to
her daughter, the plaintiff in the
case, and Faber is now endeavoring to retain the stock and insists
that the item in assets did not in-
elude the stock of the Boyal Gold
Mining Co., for at that time it was
considered absolutely valueless,
and was not considered worth listing.
Investors ave often reminded of
failures in mining and loss of
money in speculation, but rarely
hear of the huccckh achieved and j
wealth gained by investors who
have displayed judgement and investigated before investing. Who
ever hears of the investor who paid
S100 for 100 shares of United Verde
copper stocks twelve yearn ago, and
whose holding, thes'iitie 100 shares
te now worth $!10,000, and hut*

man who put 8100 into IJoniestnke
►lock a few years ago and who could
now sell hte Moi k for 8'-'0,<Mi(i, and
who has also received handsome
dividends every mouth; or of the
investor who lioldn 100 shares of
Greene Consolidated which is worth
ahout £8,500, wliich he tonight for

WORLD'S   LONGEST   TUNNEL.
According to the latest account
the Simplon tunnel of the Alps is
about three-quarters completed,
and when finished will be 14 miles
long, or twice the size of the Mont
Cenis bore. It is expected that
tho Simplon tunnel will be ready
•fort'iuse~nvttbout—"two—years; One
of the greatest obstacles encountered in the work is the high   tem
perature in the centre of the bore,
which compels the employment of
two gangs of men on short shifts.
Power for compressing air for the
drills and refrigerating the tunnel
is furnished by a flow of water
from the south end of the bore at
the rate of 15,000 gals, per minute.
It is estimated that the cost of the
tunnel alone will be about ,81,000,-
000 per mile, or nearly the same
as tlie contract for the subway
under New York city.

The gold output of the Klondike
this year will not exceed $10,000,-
000, according to W. T. Willis, of
the Canadian National Bank of
Dawson. Mr. Willis has been
handling this gold output since
1898, and is one of the men best
able \o speak of prospects for the
year.
On the 1,100-ft level of tha Home-
stake mine, South Dakota, the big
500 gallon Reidler pump used to
drain the mine is closed in a brick
building 60 feet long, 20 feet wide
and 18 feet high under the arched
roof. This is said to be the largest
brick structure under ground.
At a conference between the mine
owners, union men and merchants
of Prescott, Ariz,, the operators conceded another advance, but the
union men held out, stating that
they would not come down a cent
from their original demand. Prolongation of the strike there is expected.
