Sometime ago the merchants of Nel
son decided tc inaugurate a wid-week
half holiday. But John Houston was
not consulted, and when he came home
from the Provincial Legislature he at
once started in to upset the movement
The Tribune never tires of slapping the
businessmen for daring* to oppose our
good friend John. It hits them like
this: •'People who need anything1 in the
way of jewelry should steer clear of
Nelson on Thursdays. The jewelers of
the town do not care to show goods on
the afternoon of that day, as it is too
much trouble." It isn't necessary to
question the merits of the movement;
it is one that concerns the businessmen
alone, and it is difficult to see how it
cau take any cuticle off any part of John
Houston's anatomy if they close Thursday afternoon, or every afternoon for
that matter.
Snaps! What are snaps? There are
the good old snaps with ginger in them,
whip snaps, noisy snaps, and Govern
ment snaps. Then there'B the snappers
off of beans and snappers that are on
Just now the most conspicuous of the
.■-nap-fajijilvjB the Government snap
It is noticeable in and all „bout New
Denver, and generally throughout the
Slocan. This brand of snaps Is different
from most brands; the quality is good,
however, assaying from 13 to $4 per day
for each man employed thereon. The
Government Reserve snap has yielded
a good crop of ducats; the Carpenter
Creek snap has done likewise and the
Silverton Road snap has been a regular
harvest. These' snaps are worked on
the never-sweat principle. The mode
'of operation'is something like this: Set
aside as large a pile of ducats as can be
procured; get a few able-bodied men,
some picks, shovels and giant powder
Proceed then by selecting thu right kind
of foreman and dividing the men up into pairs or trios; place in the hands of
each a pick and shovel and to the fore
man give a sharp jack-knife and a
ainooth-gruiiiod piece of wood. Give
all plenty of breathing space and watch
developments, If they do not do as
much work in three weeks as you could
have had done by contract in six days,
there is something wrong. Vou should
turn them around and work them in (Indirection of home and mother,

you and religion are at outs, get out

you demand for yourself—justice. Tear
him to pieces. By so doing you may
not be able to elevate yourself or your

could to bring him and his standard
down to your level—and that's something.

To the Editor of The Ledge :
Dear'Sir,—In the last issue of the
Sandon Mining Reviewthe editor, while
praising the merits of the Sandon pupils
at the late entrance examination held
here, made a very uncalled-for remark
about the New Denver pupils, which it
may not be out of place to further explain. New Denver has only had a
graded school for six months while Sandon has had one for some years. The
,ao*es»of—theAS&ndon—candidates- ranged-
from 15 to 17. while those of New Denver ranged from 10 to 14. The highest
mark obtained by a Sandon candidate
was (542 by a pupil 17 years of age; in
New Denver the highest mark obtained
was 675 by a pupil 13 years of age.
Surely four years ought to make quite
a difference in a pupil's work. All the
candidates from New Denver over 1*2
years of age were successful, while oik*
only II year* old, as I pointed out last
week, was rather unf tirly '"plucked", hi
geography, because there were quo.*-
tioiiR on that paper which could not
have been answered from any text-book
on geography. Tlie Now Denver pupils
paffsed the-examination oh its merits,
There is a story told somewhere about
people who live in glass house), which
Mr. Cliffe should have read. Then, instead of making n slur at Xew Denver,
he might have been making enquiry as
to the source from which tlie information rami! that enabled their teacher to
place so many of the exact questions
before his pupib the.Saturday previous
to tho examination. J. Ihwix.

For political reasons our "ne'er do
well, ne'er do evil" provincial government will not let public works, such as
road building, grading and street improvements, be done under the contract
system. This is a commendable policy,
but if abused it Is one that costs the
government dearly, Without particularizing it is not necessary to go beyond
the limits of New Denver for abundant
proof of this. As a general thing men
when working for the government believe that the prime object of their labor
is to give the government agent nn ex*
emu for naying them their wages, It is
not a question of getting well paid for
an honest day's work, hut rather one of
doing as little work possible for nn lion*
est day's pay. It is a slow man's race

their grips waiting for the hue. One of
the grips was well-filled with hotel
towels, letterheads, pens, etc, If the
gsip had been larger the barn stormers
might have had some furniture in it.

There is a man in Nelson who declines
to attend church becauee the preachers
no longer get their sermons out of the
bible. There are other men who only
go when the discourse has a real, 'live,
human document for its inspiration.
The latter class was fully represented
at the Congregational cliureh last Sunday night, when the Rev.'Wm. Munro
attempted to answer the query, "Must
the Chinese Go ?" If the Chinese Commission had Mr. Munro for its spiritual
adviser some of its difficulties might
vanish. He argues the question from
the premise that the divine law of all
natural growth, whether of nations or
of individuals, is set forth in the parable
of the tares and wheat, "Let them grow
together until the harvest." One point
only Mr. Munro neglected to clear up.
He left his hearers in a painful state of
uncertainly as to whether the Chinese
represented wheat or tares in the mad
thing called civilization.
The "power" is off again, and Nelson
feels like an impatient lad waiting tor

The authority with which the Mayor
of Nelson iB clothed is so brief ub to be
almost indecent, and it is said there is
a movement on foot to outfit the chief
officer and the aldermen in gowns. It
might strengthen their dignity, but
when one remembers that thc gown is
significant of honor, wisdom and goodness it seems hardly fitting after all*

A Nelson man licked another last week
because the other intimated that his
wife was crooked. It seems that the
lady disposed of some furniture to her
accuser and he says she cheated him on
the deal. Maybe she did, but it is
nevertheless pleasant to meet with a
man who heartily resents an implication
against the woman he calls his wife.
Women are only relatively honest
anyway, as witness the action of an-
long been discussed but until the pres

THE LEDttE, NEW DENVER. B. (J., JUNE 20. 1901.
J    I
IFrom a "aiper read by A. J Bensusan, A. R. S. M„ F. C. S., before the January meeting:
1 of the New South Wales Chamber of Mines
Vitbi many persons, only a few such   Mount Morgan was sold for cleaning:
literals and minerals as gold, silver, tin,
li-ad,  copper  and coal are associated
hearths before its value became known.
Coming  to  the actual labor of the
with mining' opeiations, but that great j prospector, much depends, of course,
American work, the "Mining Industry,''j upon what mineral he is after; if for
treats, among other matters, of the foi- j gold, he usually commences by testing
lowing': Alum, aluminum, antimony,
arsenic, asbestos, asphaltum, barytes,
bismuth, borax, bromine, chrome, clay
(including china clay and fuller's earth),
graphite, gypsum, marble, lime, mag*
nesite, manganese, mica, nickel, onyx,
ozokerite, peat, petroleum, salt, slate,
sodium, sulphur, talc, soap-tone, tungsten, whetstones, scythestonea, grindstones and zinc, and in addition to these
there are such substances to be recovered by mining as amber, diamonds,
and other aem stones, carbonic acid
gas, and kauri gum.
These, serve to show what a great
number of substances are derived from
mining operations. It would, of course,
take many lectures to deal even in a
\cursory way with so great an array of
minerals, and the writer does not propose to attempt such a task. The
enumeration of thes*e nieials and minerals is sufficient, however, to show
what an important industry that of
mining is to any country.
In the now Federated Colonies, for
instance, the gross value of minerals
produced to date has reached the fabulous sum of £408,504,108, and the industry employs over 153,000 men.
The value of minerals raised in New
South Wales to the end of 1899 is £125,-
933,945; for the year 1899 the value of
minerals raised in Ne v South Wales
was £0,080,501). The value of minerals
won in all the Colonies for 1899 was
£*22,'201,255, and the wool clip for the
same period is valued at £19,104,355—
so mining is the greatest industry in
the Commonwealth.
To concentrate the many subjects appertaining to mining into one lecture,
we must broadly class them under the
following heads:
Prospecting, or search for minerals.
Exploration, or how to reach them.
Exploitatiou, or the preparations
necessary to win them from the earth.
Metallurgical treatment, ormeaiiB of
-«i Lion.i
the gravel of rivers and creeks, by
washing dishes in it, and a few colors
may lead him further up the gully or
stream, where his prospects improve;
he goes on further, until, perhaps, he
gets no more indications, and knows
that he has passed the source of the
gold, which may be a quartz reef, or a
number of leaders or stringers in the
country rock. If sufficient inducement
offers, he probably gets to work to
search the immediate neighborhood, bv
digging pits and shallow shafts, and
before a payable discovery is made the
prospector will, doubtless, have many
stories to tell of the "duffers" he has
There is an old process known as
"hushing" sometimes resorted to. It
consists of damning' a quantity of water
in a "convenient place, and letting it go
gently at first, and afterwards with
force, so as to wash the hillside and denude it of its covering, with the hope
of exposing any lodes.
While searching for one mineral
others might be come upon, gem stones
or tin ore might be found in the. dish
when looking for gold. Some minerals
nearly always have others associated
with them: tin ore is almost invariably
accompanied by wolfi*am,schoi*l,chlorite
and fluor-spar; magnetic iron is associated with e.pidote, garnet and hornblende; galena, lead sulphide, the common ore of lead is seldon found without
it carries silver, and zinc sulphide blend
can almost always be expected in a
lead lode.
Exploration*.— The deposit for which
a search is made having been located,
it becomes necessary to explore it to
get an idea as to its dimensions and
value, and to decide on what equipment
will be required to properly work it.
The processes of boring play an important part in exploring many mineral
deposits; alluvial deposit* of gold, tin
or gem stones may be traced under
coverings "Oi~voi«Jsnic-origiii~or"~uver"
burdens ot later sedimentary deposits,
when it can be easily understood how
valuable a system of borings to it would
be, as also it is the case when testing
beds of ironstone, coal, salt and other
Most metalliferous minerals do not
occur in the reefs or lodes id a homogenous manner, but are there in patches
and chutes aud irregular bunches, and
it is so very important to decide, at any
rate approximately, the dimensions of
the chute of ore before the discovery
can be considered a mine on which it is
advisable to expend large sums of
money. It is most unfortunate that
proper attention is ho seldom given to
llie careful aud judicious projection
and exploration of a deposit before expensive nmcliin ry is erected, and
heavy outlav incurred; but daily wh see
evidences of this great neglect; and it
is not to he wondered at that there are
so nuny failures, among gold mining
companies especially. A vein or reef
or lode may he ever mo permanent in
character, hut the cliutee of payable ore
may be very few and far between, and,
what is more, in a great many instances
it has been proved that in quartz reefs
golden dime* live onK to shallow
depths. There are many who will
doubt lens contest this Htatement and
say that such has not been proved, but
the fact is none the less true and incontrovertible. Let us think of the hundreds of gold mining enterprise* that
have been started on promising shows
in the Colony since the discovery of
gold iu 1HM, and today the number of
payable gold mines can be named on
one'* lingers. The failures are to some
due to  had aud extravagant

of the "pilot," a barren quartz vein a i
few inches wide which traverses the j
country.    There  are  only  a few in--,
stances,  but   when the features of a
district become known there is generally some special characteristic to guide
the miner to the enriched zones.
The course of a vein or deposit may
have been subjected to geological disturbances, and the exploration will generally show to what extent the result of
these has influenced its value. A lode
may be "faulted," and its continuity '

and manufacturer.
PnosPEtrriSG.—Not infrequently discoveries are made by mere accident, by
m«n having but the crudest ideas of
mines aud minerals, but these are generally on account of the fact that in
certain localities the valuable substances
are oozing out of the earth, so to speak,
and can't help being found. A farmer
plowing his land might unearth bright
•T'hHbstances, which may turn out to he
such mineials as lead, antimony, or
bismuih in their common forms of sulphides; or, perhaps, silver in ita native
state: or metallic gold, if the stone is
very rich, when he can hardly fail to
note that the substances are of value.
Much prospecting may be done by men
who set out definitely to search a locality for some particular metal in a more
or Ihm systematic ninuner, but for want
of a little practical geological knowledge, perhaps he passes over other
valuable deposits. A prospector armed
with some knowledge of Ihe mode of
occurrence of minerals, of the use of the
blowpipe, and of a few crude but useful
tests, is more likely to meet with success, and will assuredly waste less time
than one linking such advantages.

"The most original joke 1 ever
heard ot," said an old-timer yesterday, "was that of h saloon keeper at
Kit Carson in the very early days.
Carson was a typical frontier settlement. It had drawn within its
boundaries a mixed population of
hunters, gamblers,soldiers, Mexicans,
frail women and loafers, with occasionally an industrious man who was
willing to work for his living. In
the summer of 1871 the town grew
frightfully dull and the boys had
plenty of time in which to practice
the favorite western amusement of
practical joking One day old Sam
Tate, who kept the Alhambra saloon
and dance hall, was accosted by a
man who professed to be desirous of
obtaining employment.
" '\Vant work, d'ye?' said Sam.
'Well you don't look like a man that
wanted it very bad.'
" 'But I do,' persisted the man, 'and
I am willing to do anything.'
" 'Kin you turn a grindstone?'
queried Sam, as the bright idea
•truck him.
" 'I certainly kin,' responded the
stranger, whereupon Sam closed a
contract with him to stand in front of
the Alhambra for 30 days turning a
grindstone, his pay to be at the rate
of $2.50 a day,
"The next morning all of Carson
drifted around to witness the curious
spectacle of a man turning a grindstone. Sam sent out word that anybody who had axes, knives or tools
uf any sort to sharpen could have it
done free at the Alhambra. The
news quickly spread and soon the
saloon and the sidewalk in front of it

crowd of people with a miscellaneous
collection of dull implements.   The
humor of the situation went home to
everybody and a period of conviviality waR inaugurated such as the town
had never known before.   Day after
day the patient man at the grindstone toiled at his task, and day after
day the bar at the Alhambra did a
whooping  business. - The   firsr day
more than enough was made to pay
for the whole 30 days ot grindstone
turning.   The other saloon keepers
commenced to grumble, but still the
circus at the Alhambra continued to
go on.    When the news had spread
up and down the, road,  visitors from
abroad commenced to pour in.   New
life  was Infused   into tlm  waning
spirits of the population.   There was
a great spurt in horse racing, gambling and the other shirts of the border.   A new store or t tvo came along
and a lot of new buildimjs went up.
The ridiculous circumstance of a man
turning a grindstone had given the
town a boom.   Old Sam Tate simply
coined money, and his dance hall
was crowded all thc time.   The patient and taciturn man who gronnd
away with that grindstone became
•omething ol a popular hero.   One
night a lot of rovelers emptied the
water out nf tin* littln* bo* which kept
the .tone moist and filled it with silver
dollars   100 of them.   At other time,
he was given preaentit and when hia
SOdaya had expired he found himself
richer by several hundred dollar*,

Nashville, III.—John Rhodes, an old
reclouse, who lived in a lonely hut in
the southern part of the county, w*as
found dead on June 3. There were
evidences of foul play and the coroner
and a number of citizens made an examination of the cabin which resulted
iu,the discovery of three big rattlesnakes coiled up in an empty barrel.
The snakes were killed and under a
bed of leaves where they had been
sleeping an old tobacco pouch was
found, half filled with money. In a
barrel two black snakes were found. It
is believed that Rhodes made the snakes
ids companions and that they guarded
his money.

A poet in the New York Press begins some pathetic verses in this
questioning style:
"Why should I beat at the barricade
Why should I weep at the bar?"
"Well, the only answer that occurs
to us is that those unpleasant things
happen to tbe poet because he persists
in living in a town where the Sunday-
saloon closing ordinance is strictly
enforced."—Cleveland Plain Dealer.
