W E. Mann, accompanied by his
stepdaughter Miss Elme Mason, was in
the Slocan this week. Mr. Mann has
been engaged in farming sugar beets
in Spokane for some time past, hut a
siuht of the mountains has brought on
an attack of the mining fever, and next
dimmer may see-him again operating
an the famous Slocan.
The Wakefield let out its working
forte this week. The property will be
developed by contract this winter. It
shipped 200 tons of ore the past summer.
Owing to the poor condition of its ore
sheds and working buildings, it has
been found impracticable to continue
shipments during the winter months.
The remarkable feat was recently accomplished in tho Tuscarora mine, Nevada, of breaking down 1,700 tons of
ore at a single blast. This was possible
because of the enormous body of ore
which is 200 feet thick, and pitches into
the earth at a flat angle. At 900 feet
from an open cut, the outcrop workings
are 300 feet deep.

We do not feel called upon to vouch
for the nbfiolute truth of the following
paragraph, which is taken from the
Calgary Herald: "An Okanagan man's

went out to get some, potatoes for dinner, and in prying a large potato out of
the ground, it go', away from him and
rolled down the side, of the hill and
wrecked his residence. The next day
one of his large watermelons was kicked
by a horse nnd sprung a leak, and the
juice drowned seventeen of his wife's

follows: Mrs. W. Verniilyeii, who, with

Vampires are curious reptiles, but
when they belong to the genua humanus
and are of the feminine gender they are
dangerous, with a big D. In a South
American republic whose boundary on the east is marked by the
Pacific ocean, a vampire forced Its presence into the outskirts of the political
demi-world and by shrieking very
loudly through the columns of a weekly
publication, made its presence known
to the same extent that a mosquito becomes on evidence when it is on a business trip Like the mosquito, this vampire was also after blood—only in South
American political circles, blood is a
synonym for lucre. Now this vumpire
was passic even to loathsomeness, but
what she lacked in attraction she aup-
piied*bjna"mixiure*of io'w-'bred'cunnlng
ana cold-blooded gall. She commenced
by forcing her acquaintanceship upon
the leaders of public opinion, who at
that time had divided into two opposing
camps—the one advocating an air line
to Mar-s, heavily subsidized by the government, as the only safe way to guarantee prosperity to the republic; whilst
the other characterized the scheme as a
big graft. The vampire buzzed around,
strongly advocating the scheme, and
having secured an introduction to the
chief promoter thereof, fawned upon
that impressionable individual until he
thought that "he was tt.e only thing
thatTiappened," and then the vampire
declared herself in. As soon as affairs
had reached this happy state the vampire began to blossom out as a gigantic
butterfly. Visions of untold wealth in
tho near future did not prevent her
from touching the chief promoter for a
siillicieucy of the sinews of war to carry
on a vigorous and effective campaign
Indeed the promoter, who by a callous
policy of helping no one but himself had
pushed his way up in the world, was up
against a now expe-rlence. But the
vampire was on to herself, and, after
the haolts of her tribe, she played the
role of bloodsucker for all there waB in
it When Mia promoter hesitated nt a
new jump, the vampire held out visions
of a salou In Paris in which she would
be the presiding genius, and whose aim
would bo to promote the promoter

I have noticed of late a good deal has
been written, and is being said regarding the excellence of the trout' and
salmon fishing in the vicinity of Vic
toria on Vancouver Island. Now I
would like to say a few words in favor
of Nelson, in West Kootenay, as an
angler's paradise
Nelson, half mining town, half business center ot that particular porti3ii of
B C, is situated directly on the Koote
nav river, and some fourteen or fifteen
miles from where it joins the Columbia.
Nelson is a place easy of access, both
from the States and all Canadian points;
the C. P. R bas a line in there, and tbe
Nelson and Fort Sheppard railway connects it with Spokane; there are* good
hotels where ths sportsman mav put
up, and there, above all, is the river at
his feet and teeming with what I be-

exhausted the chief means of supply,
became a derelict.

Oue great thing in favor of the Kootenay trout is that he has not yet become too shy through overfishing, the
superiority of the river being aB yet but
little known, comparatively speaking.
The fish are of the rainbow variety,
such as are to be found in California
and in the Gunnison river, in Colorado,
though they do not run quite as large
as iu the latter river; this possible defect, however, is amply counterbalanced
by their remarkable lighting qualities.

through a narrow gorge in the mountains, thus forming u series of tremendous rapids, and here iu the rapids and
swirling, foaming masses of water lie
the kings of the Kootenay trout. They
are of much larger size and far stronger
and gamier than those in the upper part
of the river, and they know uot whut it
ii to be timid mid wary.   Always battling with the rushing currents of tlm
stream has apparently made them of a
peremptory, not to say violent disposition.    I hey snatch at a liy with a dash

The test of the Garreston pyritic
smelting furnace, made at Croftou oh
Saturday, says the Victoria Colonist,
was quite as successful as anticipated
by the gentlemen interested. It must
be remembered that Saturday's trial of
the Garreston furnace was not a "blow-
in"' of the Croftou smelter; it was simply
a test of the working of the new furnace, in which the proprietors of the
Croftou smelter have only such an interest as all practical metallurgists havo
in a new process which promises to
revolutionize the treatment of ores.
The furnace did all that its inventors
claim for it, and the test would have
proved an unqualified success had it pot
been for an unforseen accident which
did not oceur in the furnace and for
which it was in no way responsible.
The Garreston smelter demonstrated
that it could smelt wet ore direct from
the mine without pro ious roisting or
crushi-ng. with the least possible consumption of fuel, that it could reduce
the low grade ore to a very rich matte,
and it was on the point of converting
the matte into pig copper when the ac-
was done, however, to convince all
c6ncerned that the furnace is capable
of performing all the work claimed for
it when it is in perfect running order.
The furnace also dkt a trick which
has been held an impossibility by
metallurgists—it reduced to matte,
without fluxes, low grade ore very
heavily charged with barytes. This
puts an end to all doubt as to the possibility of smelting the low grade ores
of Mount Sicker at a fair profit and assures the success of copper mining on
Vancouver Island.

Should the Slough Creek mine, situate lli miles from Barkerville and 5}
from Stanley prove a success, as there
is every indication that it will, there
will bo a stud of 30o men employed itn-
mudiately and |t will mean the employment of numerous plants boring for
deep channels throughout Cariboo.
That there are deep channels of gold-
bearing gravels in Cariboo has been
suspected for a long time but.the possibility of gaining the gold and making
the work a verv remunerative mine has
not been established hitherto. In California these channels have heen im-
uieiiKo gold producers. The Miocene
Gravel company at Harper's camp, the
Page, company at Swift river, and F C
Faud at Willow river, are all working
on the expectation that there are such
leads Aud the working of one of them
successfully will mean renewed activity
iu all the others, besides the investigation and exploration of deep channels
on numerous creeks that the miners of
Burkurvillo have their eyes ou. A railway would open up upriice forestry
for the manufacture of pulp wood
in quaiitltlim larger than any on the
continent aud furnish winter'work for
many who now go toilie coast or winter

FELLOW PILGRIMS: Thk Lkdok Is located at New Denver. B. C, and can be traced to many parts of the earth. It comes to the front
every Thursday and has never been raided by the sheriff, snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
blazer as well as the bay-windowed and champagne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be on the right side of everything and believes that hell
should be administered to the wicked in large doses. It has stood the test of time, and an ever-increasing paystreak is proof that It is
better to tell the troth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. K chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the nnancier. Come in and see us, but do not pat the bull dog on the cranium, or chase the black cow from our water
barrel: one is savage and the other a victim of thirst. One of the noblest works of creation is the man who always pays the printer; he is

Lift of an Indian 5 com
) Iu the shadow of Eagle moun-
/        tain Judge' 'Jack'' Stilwell, famous
Indian  scout, is dying.    He is in
the grip of Bright's disease and
can not live many weeks longer.
'Knowing this he moved in from
his ranch to be nearer medical
treatment, and while the doctors
may prolong his life thsy cannot
save it, says the Kansas City Star.
Giles Stillwell, known all his life
as Jack, was the friend and contemporary of General Custer, Texas Sack, Wild Bill, Buffalo Bill,
General Miles and the Indian
fighters, scouts and frontiersmen
of the days gone by. When Custer fought his last fight and the resultant fury among the whites
stamped ought the Indian uprisings; when there was no longer
need for the old scout, Jack Still-
well retired from the army, from
-cattle raising and ranching, and
studied law.
Brilliant scout and Indian fighter
he made a brilliant lawyer, and his
arguments before the courts of
Arizona, Texas, Wyoming and
Oklahoma will long be remembered
for their wit and comprehension of
tho law.
Stillwell saw Wild Bill assassinated, and comforted Texas Jack in
his last hours when he was dying
of consumption.
His most noteworthy achievement took place while he was a
scout under General Forsyth, during the summer of 1868. General
Miles tells the story most interestingly as follows:
Jack Stillwell wae the hero of
one of the most remarkable affairs
with Indians in the history of the
American frontier. During the
year 18C8, when he was a beardless youth in buckskin, he did the
* thing which made him famous
throughout the west and stamped
him as one of the most courageous
scouts in the army.
Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel Geo.
A. Forsyth, commanding a small
body of about thirty citizens enlisted as scouts, camped beside the
Arickaree river, a small stream in
northern Kansas. The Indians
had been reported as rising and
the purpose of the expedition was
    to  ascertain   the   true   state   of
summoned or the command would
perish. Jack Stillwell one of the
few who had escaped unharmed so
far, offered to go to Fort Wallace.
It looked to-be sure death to venture outside of the charmed circle.
Old Pete Trudeau, a frontiersman,
volunteered to accompany him.
There was nothing else to do,
and Colonel Forsyth was compelled
to accept the offer. At midnight,
amidst the whispers of good luck
and the farewell handshakes of the
boys, who never expected to see
them again alive, the two men
crawled over the breastwork and
waded the river to the enemy's
shore. They imitated the wearing
apparel of the Indians by wearing
blankets and moccasins—made
from their boot tops—so as not to
leave the footprints of a white man
behind them.
The natural way to go would
have been down the river or
through one of the many ravines
that started from the river bank.
The most dangerous way was to go
straight up over the bald hill in
front of the island. Stillwell
thought the ravines would be full
of Indians and he also thought that
the water course would be most
closely guarded, so he chose the
trail over the bald hill, trusting to
their disguises if seen.
In conversation between Stillwell and some of these same Indians afterward it was proven that
they had made a lucky stroke in
not attempting to make their escape by the waterway or the adjacent ravines.
Crawling on their hands and
knees, they were able to make only
three miles before the dawn that
night. They saw Indians on every
hand and were forced to lie still
frequently. The three miles brought
them to the divide between the
Arickree and South Republican
and there they concealed themselves for the day in a washout or
the head of a hollow, where the
banks had been overgrown with
tall grass and sunflowers. They
left no trail behind them and they
were satisfied that they would not
be discovered. From over the hill
they could hear firing all day,
which told them that their cora-
rades still held out
Wh i le one of these scouts was sitting his horse not fifty yards away,
occurred the "rattlesnake" affair,
which has been so widely published.
There was a snake in the carcass
and he crawlsd around and made
it exceedingly uncomfortable for
the two scouts who seemed to be
usurping his home. They could
not move a hand to kill him for
fear of the Indian. They could
only lie still, Stilwell finally spit
tobacco juice on its head by a well
directed shot, and the snake vacated the premises.
But this was the last straw to
the camel's back. Trudeau broke
down completely after the Indian
scout had satisfied himself that
there were no white men near. He
seemed to lose his mind and wanted
to shoot his revolver and sing.
Stilwell kept him quiet until nightfall, when he persuaded him to go
to the nearest river and drink.
The water did wonders for him,
and they traveled on as rapidly as
possible. The fourth day was a
foggy day and they could travel by
daylight without trouble. About
11 o'clock, when they were nearly
exhausted, they saw coming out of
the haze of the Denver wagon road
on which they were traveling, two
mounted men. They could not tell
whether they were Indians or not
but they had horses, aud the weary
scouts needed the horses. They
had come over eighty miles on foot
in four days.
When the horsemen drew near
Stilwell discovered that they were
soldiers, two couriers on the road
to Colonel Carpenter's commaud,
lying at Lake Slater, some 60 miles
from where General Forsyth was
As soon as they heard of Forsyth's predicament they spurred
away to Colonel Carpenter, who responded promptly, marching his
entire force to tht, relief of Forsyth.
Trudeau never recovered from
the terrible strain of that journey,
but died next spring. He lies
buried at Fort Sill, 0. K.
Every minute of our tranquility
is purchased with patience. It is
the great sacrament of peace, the
sanctuary of security, the. herald
and the badge of felicity.-Vaughan.
There was very little water in
the river, it being the dry season—
September 17, in fact—and the
party, fearing attack, encamped on
an island in the middle of the
river. Jack Stillwell was one of
the scouts. About 9 o'clock in the
morning they were attacked by a
band of 200 warriors, who shot at
them from both banks.
The men placed themselves in a
.circle, lying down, and each one
instantly began digging a rifle pit
for himself. The Indians were repulsed and retreated. Roman Nose,
their leader, was killed in the
charge, and tho river banks were
strewn with dead warriors.
All wiw quiet until 2 o'clock in
the afternoon, when the Indians,
thirHting for vengeance, came
again, more fiercely than over. But
by that time the defenses were
finished, ami the Indians were
again driven off. A final and 1110111
feeble attack was made about 4
o'clock, and then it began to rain.
Everyone knew that the next move
of the IiidiaiiH, finding that direct
attack did not accomplish rwuiltw-
would be to surround the devoted
little band and starve them out, or
pick off the unwary by long sharp-
nhooting from cover.
Taking account of the damage
done tbey found that they had mif-

When the darkness came they
started south again. During the
night they saw two parties of Indians in front of them, which delayed them greatly, and yet daylight found that they had reached
the South Republican. They also
discovered to their surprise and
chagrin that they were about half
a mile from the Sioux and Cheyenne village. How that happened
they did not know then, but it was
afterward learned that the trail
turned south about a mile west of
where the battle was being fought,
and that turn had led them into
the very heart of danger.
As the sun was about torit-6 they
'hastened to cover under the river
bank in the tall grass of a kind of
bayou, and there thoy lay in the
water all day without moving. In-
diaiiH crossed very near to them
during tho day, fur it was a kind
of ferry. Once some warriors
stopped not thirty feet from thorn to
water their horses, and they heard
them talking about tH white men
on the island and how soon they
would l>e starved out. They could
hear the beating of the tom-toms
in the village nearby as the nquawH
mourned their dead, and saw thein
carrying out several bodies to the
sepulchre of scaffold.
That night, almost crazed by the
mental worry the noises of the day!
had tau.n'd them, they crept away j
across the South  Fork ol  the He- j
publican, and the morning of tho |
fourth   day   found   them  on  the j
prairie near  the   head   of Goose)
creek.   The Indians seemed to have'
been left behind, and  thc I toy and \
the  man  eoncluded   to  travel   by ■
day.    It pretty nearly cost them'
their lives,  for about H o'clock  in
the morning they saw  coming toward thein the advance guard of \
what   they afterward*  found   out-
was the ••I).»g Soldiers."

A. E. Fletcher, of the London
Daily Chronicle, is thedoven ofthe

For n lifetime he hae been engaged
in newspaper work of the most
strenuous kind, and has always interested himself in public questions
including the progress of the colonies. He is a socialist in political
belief and was the workingmen's
candidate for Glasgow at the last
Imperial election. Mr. Fletcher
has been a close observer on his
present visit, and was critical in
his expressions, says the Ottawa

for cheap, labor is not available on
the dressing floors, the employment
of Chinese for such work would not
be in any way detrimental to the
skilled white miner, and would undoubtedly greatly assist the mining
companies in earning ' dividends.
He also very justly criticises the
inutility of the great majority of
the concentrating structures erected by American firms, and suggests that English manufacturers
of concentrating machinery would
fiud a valuable opening in B. C."
The renewed eruptions of the
volcanoes at Martinique and St.
Vincent give added interest to the
report which has recently been pre-
s.uited to the Royal Society of
London by Dr. Tempest Anderson
and Dr. Flett. Their preliminary
report will probably be followed by
more complete details of their observations, They were not only
able to make careful observations
of the effects produced at St. -Vincent, but had an opportunity of
witnessing at Martinique a repetition, on a reduced scale, ofthe
Mont Pelee eruption which destroyed St. Pierre.
The Soufriere eruptions was not
unexpected, and the Caribs were
making their preparations for leaving the "neighborhood permanently
when the fury of the discharge
came upon them. There had been
repeated warnings in the shape of
continual earthquakes. The lake
in the crater was raised to boiling
point, before the actual outburst
came. Thus when the explosion
arrived, the rivers were swollen
with boiling water. This scalding
torrent was immediately followed
by a blast of mephitic vapour.
In both eruptions this blast
seems to have been the chief feature and did the awful damage.
To it the great loss of life is entirely due. It came like a solid
wall of black smoke, looking as if
it were a "promontory of solid
land,'' In the case of the Soufriere this column extended fully
eight miles out to sea. It was not
a firey blast, but yet was intensely
hot and carried hot dust with it.
The few who encountered it and
live to relate their experience, describe it as giving them a sensation
as though something was compressing their throats. Upon the higher
levels the blast seemed to have had

a blackened mark of abomination—
tract of land over which had raged
one of your forest fires. I think
you could take some steps to prevent this wastefulness which is
characteristic always of a new
country. I have travelled through
the forests of Germany and never
saw such devastation from forest
fires. Then I think some means
should be employed to preserve the
beauty of your forests find water-
powers. There is no necessity for
disfiguring a water power in using
it. It is only a question of expenditure. I think your peopledonot
value subjective utility; you only
consider the objective. The wealth
of a country does not consist altogether in its material resources,
but partly in the number of beautiful objects which you can personally enjoy, and in the number of
good men and women you can rear.
For instance, again, in the prairies
the new settlements are exceedingly ugly. Log cabins have a natural
beauty, and as a rule are in harmony with the surrounding scenery
but the hideous false fronts built in
your new towns are an abomination. Some of the older settlers
are so used to rough aud tumble
conditions that they are satisfied
with them. But you don't look
enough to beautifying your surroundings^

Address ==========
One of the new fads is men's
socks for women. There is a rumor
prevalent that some wives wear the
trousers, but no one imagined that
the socks would also be appropriated. If the women continue the
invasion of the men's wardrobe,
there will soon be mighty few
articles of wearing apparel that
man can call his own. His shirt,
coat, vest, collar, tie and socks are
gone. He has remaining only his
chewing tobacco and suspenders;
not much of a lay-out for a cold
day.—La Grange Journal.
