child had evinced such a passion for the
instrument that the father consented to
allow her to be taught. At that age
Felix Simon took her in charge. Her
advance was most remarkable She
soon proved her genius. At 10 an effort
was made to get her into the Conservatory of Music at Paris. Auber, the
composer, was at the time the director
of the institution und he refused to consider the application No girl had been
admitted nor ever would be, besidesshe
was too young. But her genius could
not be long ignored. She was finally
admitted and the masters were ready to
lend every assistance to the child. Tn
a few years the first concert tour was
made, through France and Switzerland.
Year after year the talented artist has
extended her scope until, it may be
said, she has lifted the soul of every
music-loving nation on earth high up
into the realms of purity and love by her
genius and bow. She speaks through
her instrument from a heart overflowing with kindness, and in a language
that all may understand,

in the hereafter they will be there.
They can tell you all about the affairs of
the Union, and produce government
statistics to prove that the employer
is making a fair profit off the labor of
the wage earner, and therefore, he argues, the wage earner should not labor
so hard for the wages received. This
class of men are usually looking for a
crack in other people's business into
which to push their nose, and are continually squealing if the organ is
pinched. Trouble to them is an easy
thing to find—much 'easier than employment. The natural result is that
they know all about the woes and
weaknesses, of others, and keep them
stirred up in order to hide the rottenness of their own souls and their shallow pntes.
Attention was called in these columns
last week to the manner in which the
work being done with government
funds hereabouts was lining pushed
under the day labor system, It was a
matter that concerned the public and in
justice should he considered from the

But tho class of individuals referred tn
itbove have, as usual, taken the narrow
side of the question and attempt to
justify thu slip-shod way of doing public
work from their standpoint of unionism
The trouble with these people is not in
their sheority hut in their ignorance.
Their concept ion of unionism is onesided, They believe that labor unions
are organized for tlm sole purpose of
compelling tiie employer to pay the
highest wage that his business will
stand and enabling the employee to hold
his job nnd do the least work for the
WAge demanded. This is his logic: but

Skagway heralded tho arrival of the
Canadian Pacific Navigation Company's
steamship Islander in its port on her
Hist trip by tho following gloving report, which appeared on the front page
of the Daily Alaskan:
Sunday afternoon half of the population of Skagway accepted the cordial
invitation of Captain Foot to inspect
(he steamship Islander. Captain Foot
was personally in charge and he was
very HolicitoiiH to s«e that everybody
lind a chance to see the tine .ship anil
partake of the good things. He was
most ably assisted by Agent Dunn, Mr
I'umphroy nnd every member of the
new. They were all just as polite and
attentive as though those aboard had
paid their hard cash to he taken cure
It would be dillicult to give ar accurate description of the vessel and her
appointments without going into the
minutest details. The ship's exterior
is well remembered by many Skag-
wayans, but the interior has been so
completely changed that It was absolutely unrecognizable yesterday. The
tiltings are most elaborate and tho
decorations are all of artistic merit and
present n harmony of view mhuh is
A Nelson man who makes no prcten- i
sions to excessive virtue, but who, having children of his own, takes a paternal
interest in the youth of the city, is
alarmed in regard to the evil tendencies
displayed by certain young girls on his
street, a street, by the way, that is considered one of the most irreproachibly
respectable in town. According to his
showing," Nelson mothers are raising
future tenants for thc city of sin below
the hill Having on several occasions
observed a young girl, one whom he
had heretofore regarded as a mere
child, entering a house of more than
questionable repute accompanied by a
male companion, tliis fatherly individual
undertook to remonstrate with the girl,
threatening to tell her father where she
spent her evenings unless she promised
to desist from so imprudent a course,
The little culprit cried and implored his
silence, stating that she would be
'turned"away°froiii*iiome were*her father
informed, and as a further inducement
to secrecy, offered to make an assignment with the gentleman himself—her
father's friend—on any evening he
might name at the same questionable
re-sort, The offer, it is needless to say,
was refused, for childhood is sacred
even to men who do not shine as moral
lights in the community, and the girl's
secret was kept, whether wisely as
kindly is a matter for a diversity of
opinion, yet who would be the one to
slay a parent's faith in his daughter's
innocence The father who reads this
story will never dream of identifying its
naughty heroine with his child, but it
behooves every parent to guard well
Ihe life, for whose besetments he himself is probably responsible,
Once more unionism has tiiiuiiphrd,
and the mid-week half holiday, unlike
tlie quiet Sunday, has evidently come
to  stay.    The   strongest   mercantile
community—the Chinese—the Masons
passed for "Joss-house men." Considerable excitement prevailed among
the celestial when the craftsmen paraded in gorgeous regalia on Friday night.
As one of them explained to the lady in
whose kitchen he toils: "Allee samoe
my China Joes-house men—China Joss-
house man never marry—lady, ohe nun
—never marry too." One being told
that the English nun likewise remained
single John was incredulous. "No, no,
I know. I see Joss-bouse man and liun
—live, in house—lots little children."
And the most charitable construction
his mistress could put upon John's
words was to suppose that he alluded to
a Protestant clergyman and his family.
The Dawson News of May 81st gives
the following account of how Martin
Clair, a miner who was well known in
"Kootenay, met his death in a mine not
far from Dawson. The News says: "A
coroner's inquest was held at the Forks
by Captain McDonnell on the death of
Martin Clair, who was found dead at
the bottom of a 25-foot shaft on Little
Skookum hill. The jury decided Clalv
died from suffocation from the effects of
gas breathed while in the mine.through
his own carelessness, and recommended
that tho mine be ventilated before again
being used. Clair was a miner, He
disappeared Friday night, and was
found dead Saturday at the bottom of
the shaft of a mine opposite No. 2, Ron-

follows: Soak the grain over night
in water, salt to taste and simmer
all day, or until the grains are very
soft. When possible,put in enough
water at the start to cook the grain
soft without adding more. When
the water has all evaporated, and
the grains become soft enough remove from the stove, and place a
small quantity at a time in a- jar
and put through the same process
required in mashing potatoes. This

Wo come now to a few remarks under . first freezing the surrounding ground
tin; heading*of Exploitation: Assuming,
it ia decided,, that a deposit is worth
working*, knowledge is required concerning the manner in which it should
be opened, and of which the lode itself
is composed, or the country rock that
has to be removed to get at the deposit It will be readily understood
that the size of the openings (the shafts
and drives) into the deposit is a very
important consideration. A vein, say,
of a few inches wide may be worked by
a shaft, say, six feet by three feet in the
clear of timber, as there is a comparatively small amount of material to be
handled. It is, however, a mistake to
have the main openings in any deposit
too meagre in dimensions. The shalt
at the Sydney Harbor Colliery at Bill-
main, where it is expected to handle
enormous quantities of coal, is circular,
18 feet in diameter. It is first made 22
feet in diameter, and has about 18 inches
of brickwork all around. This shaft
will be about 3,000 feet deep when completed, and it is hero given as an instance of a shaft for very large work-
hi|i8. In metalliferous mining anything
so big is seldom required. A mine or
group of mines bein? proved to be permanently profitable to work, usually
vast sums of money have to be spent on
it to get the utmost profit from the, mineral won. Most of us are familiar with
or at. least have some idea of the ex
tensive, woiks there are. at Broken Hill,
Mount Bisc-hof, Mount Lvell, Mount
Morgan and other places; but few people can have any conception of the
magnitude of the workings in connection with some of the very old mines of
the old world. Thus, in the 'Hartz
Mountains, there is a group of silver-
lead mines tlia£ has been worked for a
great period of time. To drain these
the Ernst-August ''Tuniel has been
driven a distance, of nearly f'J miles,an<l
with its branches it is no less than 14
miles long. Many of the lodes are intersected by tins tunnel at 1,200 feet deep;
the cost of this work  was nearly  £90,-
The Freiberg Mines are drained by a
f.innel, the Kothschonberger Stolln, the
by injecting a freezing mixture through
pipes forced into the watery strata; this
is known as the Poetch process. There
is also the Triger or compressed air
method of sinking in very watery
To conclude, gentlemen, I doubt not
but that you will readily understand
that it is a much easier task to write a
paper on any technical matter with
which one is familiar than one dealing
so broadly with a big subject as 1 have
done. I have tried to avoid everything
technical, and to write matter that
would be pleasing to the average person, who is merely inteaested in some
way in mining, which doubtless fill
members of this'Chamber are; and I
hope 1 have been able to show at least
that the subject of mining is one that
should not he dealt with iu any perfunctory way,but that in all its branches
there is ample scope for the employment
of brains.
I shall be glad to see the day when
moetdf the men at present managing
our mines all over this country retire in
favor of trained engineers, when we
will then hear of lower failures, and of
people investing in mining knowing
that they will have at least a fair run
for their money.
The employment in managerial positions of the so-called "practical" man,
and I use the word practically advised,
is one of the greatest drawbacks from
which the industry suffers in this country. He is usually a miner who has
been cute enough to raise his status by
(irst becoming a shift boss,then foreman
of a mine, then"' perhaps manager of
some small concern, and finally he
takes responsibilities far beyond his
capacity, with the result that he almost
invariably ruins the mine, and not infrequently those who have found the
money for the work.
The management of mines nowadays
should be in the hands of the most
highly trained anil educated men available. A common sailor can never reach
the position of commander on an oceangoing steamer; an ordinary miner, in
the. same way, ought never bo able to
Pull the shutters open, Harry.   Let me
feel the evening breeze
How it murmurs soft scent-laden thro'
the flower-glad forest trees.
See there where that sarsaparilla climbs
that old dead gum tree trunk
And the  sun throws fleeing* shadows
from it, right across my bunk.
Early in the day, old fellow, they were
playing round my bead,
When the shadows reach the shutter,
then, boy, I'll be lying dead.
I was thinking all the morning, just be- !j
fore you chaps came in, | -
What those people mean who tell us i
each man must repent his sin.      j
I have done no sin 1 know of.   What is j
sin?   I drink and swear, j
But I never wronared a woman, or to!
man was else than fair, J
Yet the parson came this morning.knelt j
aud prayed my soul to save ■
And  when   leaving,   said  forgiveness j
must be sought this side the grave, j
Told me in a serious fashion what it did j
no good to know, J
How a woman ate an apple some few i
million years ago:
Since then, White and Black and Yellow,
each and all are full of sin,
God He ain't that sort, for tell me—isn't
that a bit too thin?
I can't manage this repenting.   All I
know, I've got to die,     ' i ,w==:
God will see me fair, old fellow, what's ~*
up Harry?   Want to cry?
Don't be soft you grey old badger, you'll

Ami we might meet one another in that
other world; who knows?

the luruehank blast at the Consolidated
Why will people tell a fellow  that he's j Carihoo Hydraulic mine, at Bullion,was
successfully exploded, with very salis-
lengtb; with its ramifications it is about
25 miles long, and cost £3(>0,000. In
Hungary a mine drainage tunnel, the
Kaiser Joseph Erbstolln, was started in
1782 and completed in 1878; it is over 10
miles long. Mauy other works of this
kind can be recorded, but these few
serve to show how vast works are some
times in connection with inining operations, and they rather dwarf things iu
this hemisphere that appear to us as big
coiicorus, These drainage tunnels
serve also in many instances for the
conveyance of the ore to the treatment
centres. At ( lausthal, in the Hart/,,
there is a central ore treatment works,
fed from a shaft about |,_oo feet deep,
sunk not on any lode, but tliroit.h the
country to tap the drainage tunnel, in
which all the ore from the mine is con
veyed ill barges *o be hauled tip the
shaft to the works.

Nothing but old ane will cure some
people of blushing, and indeed it is a
wonder they wish to be cured, so be

cure in compound infusion of gentian,
of which half a wine^lassful should be
taken twice a day
When coughing is troublesome, draw

They don't know, they've never been

But, old mate, I'll soon be wiser, tho' a

Than those people   who  are  flaming
with all sorts of hellish stuff.
Hurry, I've just got t_ chance it, I can't
pray; forgotten how;
I'm not frightened, only sorry that I've

I am young, just two and twenty.punch

Vet by this time Friday, Harry, I'll  be

Oh', that ugly wall-eyed lilly, ere, she;
banged nie on that gun,
1 had very little notion she'd send me
to kingdom come
In my swag you find a  letter  my old
mother wrote her Will;
When I'm buried  write and tell  her
that I'm gone a kind o' ill.
Bide a while and write her fully—she'll
expect to hear it so—
That I've backed my last buck-jumper,
gone where all at length must go,
Tell her that I still remember what she
used to tell me say
will please her anyway.
Make a lot of little crosses underneath
my name at last,
Kisses for the poor old mother Harry,
I am dying fast
Pull the shutterB wider open, let me see
the flowers again;
Hear the curlews, how they're screaming, Harry, that's a sign of rain.
I don't feel a bit of sickness, 1 could kill
a bullock now,
Or make things almighty lively in a
fair four-cornered row;
Bnt my back is broke, old fellow; some-
'thing's wrong inside my head,
And the doctor smid by sunset.'I'd  be
numbered with the dead.
Harry, what's jijono wrong, old fellow;;
' 1 keep slipping, slippim* ilown,
Hold my band, how dark  it's getting,
ail the sunshine has a Irown.
Harry, don't forget poor mot her,  write
' and tell her what 1 said—

and the rider lies there dead.

The new law increasing the extent of
a placer mining location in Atlin district, B.C., goes into effect about July
1st of this year. It permits the location

The outlet to a reservoir should preferably be a tunnel through the solid
ground alongside of the dam. A trunk
through a dam is poor practice. It is

uneven settling of the dam when it is
built of earth.

A group of fifty mining claims is not

Chances of having a mine are not ^materially increased by having a large
number of claims.
