Rov. Mr. Young, of the Seventh Day
Adventist persuasion, has located in
this city with the immediate intention
of teaching the people that they are all
Sabbath breakers, even if they do not
play ball on Sunday, and the more remote design of establishing a branch of
the famous Battle Creek Sanitarium in
the Kootenays. The doctorB say Nelson is distressingly healthy, and therefore it ought to afford a tempting field
for a cure all institution.
Tho item appearing in these columns
last week relating to the matrimonial
affairs of Ensign Lester, of the Salvation Army, presented the lady and her
husband in a false light, in that it did
not take a charitable view of what appeared a peculiar combination of circumstances. Avery considerate letter
has been received from the husband of
the Ijttle woman which proves beyond
question that a great injustice has been
done her, and that instead of their being separated or estranged, as has been
reported, she is temporarily confined in
the care and comfort that her maternal
condition demands.
A Nelson merchant has reason to regret the entire sanctification of one of

customer declined to pay it on the

"passed away."

One of the most important suits which
haye been entered since the celebrated
War Eagle and Centre Star mining suit
will come up for hearing at the next
sitting of the Supreme Court in October
in Nelson. The case arises out of an
action entered by S. S. Taylor, K. C,
on behalf of the Star Mining Co., of
Sandon, owners of the Heber Fractional
and Rabbit Paw claims adjoining the
Slocan Star, for $500,000 against the
Byron N. White Co,, owners of the
Slocan Star. The latter company are
following a lead, the apex of which
they claim is on their property,wheroas
is on the Heber Fraction. The plaintiffs
state that large quantities of extraordinarily high grade ore has of late
been taken from their property by the
people of the Byron N. White Co,
The suit involves the difficult and
complex question of the apex, arising
under the old miniug law, as all these
claims were staked in the years of 1891-
92 and the properties in question are
some of the most valuable in the Slocan.
A receiver and an injunction has been
applied for m connection with the suit,,
Another interesting law suit, arising
out of a mining transaction, will come
up at the October assizes, which has
already been the subject matter of four
different actions in the Supreme Court.
A writ has been issued by S. S. Taylor,
K.C., on behalf of Alex. Sproat and F.
Mclnnes, of New Donvor, agalnRt C, F.
Caldwell of Kaslo, E. S. Sawyer of To*
ronto, and William Chaplain of St.
Catherines, claiming the wrongful disposal of a portion of tho ore of the Marion
mine, sacked and ou the wharf at New
Denver. Tho plaintiffs ask an injunction against the defendants from disposing of the balance of tho oro at the
mine, and damages for ore already
taken and tho appointment of a receiver
to hold the monies realized from the
ore already sold, pending the result of
the action. This ore was tho subject of
an action lately tried at tho Supreme
Court in Nelson, whoreln Mnrlno was
the plaintiff, and Sproat and Mclnnes
were defendants,
I   STocan Cfty Division
Brief Summary  of Operations  Being Carried on;
in the Dry Ore Belt.
Commenting on the condition of mining in the Slocan City division, as seen
by a representative of the Sandon Paystreak, that paper says: "In the Slocan City division there are two distinct
districts, both geographically and geologically, viz: the Lemon creek district
and the Ten Mile district. The Lemon
creek district comprises all within tlie
watershed which finds its outlet at Slocan City.   It is the dry ore region ofthe
the north, a distance of over five miles.
"Next to and adjoining the Arlington is the Speculator group, which
covers the ledge for nearly two miles.
These claims were bonded last fall by
capitalists who are also interested in
the Arlington, for $40,000. The bond
falls due on the 18th of August, and will
undoubtedly be taken up. R. I. Kirk-
wood and Chas. E. Smitheringale and
wife are the principal beneficiaries.
"The Speculator is being developed
under the management of Wm, Thomlinson, with Wm. Warren as foreman.
There are 35 men on the payroll, who
have be.:ii engaged for several months
in ground-sluicing, sinking, cross-cutting and drifting. Everywhere it has
been opened up the ledge has proved
strong and well-defined. In one place
it was cross-cut for 60 feet before the
footwall was finally run into. In the
No. 2 shaft some very nice ore was

Slocan, which is now attracting so much
"Lemon creek is a camp with something of a history. In one particular it
was not unlike Pioche, Creed, Cripple
Creek, Transvaal and almost every
other district which eventually became
famous—it was turned down hard before its value became known. In the
early days of discovery in the Slocan
prospectors walked unheeding over the
rich ledges of Lemon creek, not be-
ence, but because they did not consider
that dry ore was worthy of their attention.
"The principal properties working in
the Lemon creek district are the Arlington and Speculator. Both these properties belong to San Francisco capitalists, represented by J. Frank Collom.
The Speculator is a comparatively new
property, but tho Arlington has been
worked several years. It was located
originally by Cooper & Murphy, who
did considerable work and afterward,
with Frank Watson of Spokane, stocked
it and put tho property on the market.
Under    Watson'a    management    the
Arlington was extensively worked and
considerable oro shipped, but an ore
shoot siilllcient to make the prospect a
mine was not found, and the company
was floundering along between an overdraft and the sheriff when Collom purchased a  controlling  Interest   in  the
stock and found $r>(),000 for development
purposes.   Since then the history of the
property has been a tale of success.
Extenslvo and systematic development
has been conducted and an oro shoot
opened up from which the owners will
take out all they  over  invested and
many times more,
"The Arlington   is worked through
eight tunnols which aro run iu ou the
ledge, each opening up the vein loo feet
below the next one.    At  present the
Arlin-rliui Is shipping froun'Oto lOu tons
of ore a week.   The ore is sorted into
three grades at the mine and only the
No. 1 grade shipped.    Like other dry
ores, especially those carrying native
silver, the ore varies in returns, but a
general average would give about !lo<)
ounces nilver to the ton.    Considering
that a freight aud treatment  rate of two years ago from Geo. Aylard, Win.
less than fin a ton is secured for this! Glynn and John A. Finch,   Since then

the pumping and hoisting machinery
necessary to continue sinking. The
delay is due to tho machinists strike in
San Francisco. This shaft was sunk 70
feet and 100 feet of drifting done by
hand. A drift is now being run on the
ledge lower down wliich will drain the
upper workings.
"The ore found in the Speculator is of
the same character as that produced
from the Arlington, only even more
desirable for smelting purposes, as it
carries higher percentages of iron and
silica, and also shows considerable
"There are many other properties
about the Arlington basin from which
g-oat things are expected. A small
force is working on the Two Friends
and showing the property up well. The
GatineauandSimco have 10,000-onnce
assays and aro cross-cutting to open up
the showing. The Lilly B, it is expected, will some day be a great mine.
There is another deal on for the Chapleau, and scores of other prospects havo

green. But it is a system tliat puts a
collar around the people's necks and
hinds the country, down to the colonial
days and ways. Advancement is out
of the question, as a nation, so Ions* as
the country has no legal 'tender-coin
money. With absolutely nothing to
fall back upon but foreign gold, she
must of necessity remain v. dependency
on the financial world. And this in
spite of the fact that she has for years
been a heavy producer of gold. Viewed
from the bankers standpoint—and since
the world began this has always been
one of immediate self interest—there is
some reason why they should oppose
the establishment of a mint. But there,
arejust a few people in Canada who are
not bankers—though all would like to
be. Then again, the, Dominion' as a
government is not in the banking business, and it, too, wants to get there.
When it succeeds, it will have something more than promises to pay to
hand out to von.
Manager Wilkie, of the Imperial
Bank of Canada, is an exception to the
general run of the head, of our money
mills. At the annual meeting of that
bank, he said, concerning the establishment of a mint in Canada: "1 do not
concur in the objections which have
been raised to this project; on the contrary, I am more than ever convinced
from a patriotic, a sentimental, and an
economic point of view that no time
should be lost in completing its establishment The advantage of attracting
to our markets the producers of an ever
increasing output of gold and silver,
won from our own territory, by the establishment of government assay
offices, is self-evident; the alarm lest
we have an over-production of gold
and silver through the establishment is
newlless; our present excellent currency system will not be interfered
with. Canadian gold assayed and re-
lined by Americans linds a market today in the shape of United States bars
and United States coins, whichever is
applied for by the depositors. Why
should a Dominion government assay
and a Dominion government certilieate,
in the shape of an impression of his
majesty's head upon each coin and upon
each ingot, debase their value or divert
their course? It is not necessary or expedient that everything in the shape of
gold or silver purchased at the government assay office should he coined into
sovereigns or decimal coinage—such is
■notthecourseof-sveuts in Great-Britain-
or in gold-producing countries, such as
Australia and the United Slates, where
government mints now exist. Much ol
our Canadian gold does, under American auspices, and will, under Canadia .i
auspices, lind its market in the. shape
of ingots or bars. Its coinage into sovereign"*, half-sovereigns and decimal
pieces will not be compulsory '"

THE LEDttE, NEW DENVER, li (J., AUGUST 1   1901.
ITlcxicos Burden Bearers
Mexico never gets away from its
dislikes of innovations and its love
of primitive ways, says a traveling
correspondent. No primitive custom is more doggedly retained by
Mexicans everywhere from the Rio
Grande to Central America than
that of using human brawn and
muscle to do the work of horses,
mules and oxen.
■'They are our competitors, and
no mean ones, either," said a railroad man recently, pointing to a
score of Mexicans in single file,
each carrying a box of merchandise,
up the mountains to inining camps.
In the streets of cities there are
passing every hour men who transport enormous packs of merchandise on their shoulders and backs.
Here conies a little old man with a
quarter of a ton of hay on his bent
back. Yonder is another man
N carrying a prodigious load of earthen crocks strapped across his shoulders. Close behind him trots a lad
with a basket holding several bushels of chilis balanced on his head,
and there conies a procession of
young men, the eargadores for the
big hotel, each bearing on his back
a huge American trunk from the
railroad station.
The business of burden-bearing
is eon lined to the peon or peasant
class in Mexico. There are families of eargadores—the human
freighters of Spanish countries—
who have been in the vocation for
generations. As a class they are
small of stature, thin of legs and
arms, haggard faced, probably
from the excessive use of the powerful mescal and tobacco, and prematurely old. But their necks and
chests are full and exhibit great
muscular development. They are
stooped shouldered from long years
in their work.    Scores of mail car-

and nothing else.
the plough  trudges along with  a
dull, set expression.
One scene of Mexican women doing the hard labor of  the   beast
sticks in the writer's memory.     It
was at, Zacatecas.      Irrigation in
the hard, parched soil there is necessary to produce crops,  and the
primitive  irrigation  devices   have
remained exactly the same through
two and three centuries.    On many
haciendas   water   is   raised   from
springs by crude water wheels.    In
almost any other country a beast of
burden would be employed to work
these water wheels.      But human
muscle is cheap in   Mexico.     At
Zacatecas the writer   saw a  half
dozen comely peon  girls, ranging
from 14 to 18, harnessed to a water
wheel and trotting about the ring
hauling the heavy beam of the apparatus   after    them.       Notwithstanding their ragged garb,  their
swart   hands    and    necks,   their
clumsy feet and marks of hard toil
they had a fresh beauty peculiar to
young women of Aztec blood. They
had worked at the same task weeks
and their parents had  contracted
to supply their labor  until the end
of the irrigating season, which was
three months away.    Every day for
11 hours, with a half-hour rest at
noon, the girls trudged  about the
hot, dusty ring of earth, in a fierce
sunshine, with  never a   thing to
vary the monotony  of their existence.    For this labor the  parents
received 10 cents a day  for  each
Standing on any city street corner on a busy day it is interesting

The Iron Horse claim, belonging to
the Burlington Mining Company, of
Spokane, adjoins the Enterprise on the
north, officers of the company were in
this week to commence operations on

line showing of high grade ore in a 70-
