for the purpose of treating and refining
nickel will be for rent. The whole
business could easily be prevented
Ono word from the government at
Ottawa would change the. headquarters
and workshops of this big combination
from New Jersey to Canada. One word
from the law-makers at Ottawa would
put Canada in a most enviable position
as "far as nickel and nickel steel are
concerned And yet that word remains
unspoken 1 Can any man give any
reason, good or bad, why the government of this country should thus neglect
its plain duty?—Hamilton Spectator.
Speaking of the character and importance of the recently opened iron
mines at Kitchener, B. C, the New
York E.  & M.  Journal says:    "The
Kitchener ore, so far as developed; is a
high grade bessemer ore so situated
that it can be smelted on the spot or
transported without very great cost or
difficulty to furnaces in the coast region
of British Columbia, or to the vicinity
of the coal mines and coke ovens of the
Crow's Nest Pass country. One of the
latter alternatives seems the more probable, if the analogy of all modern practice is to hold good; since it is the almost universal custom at present to
carry the ore to the fuel rather than the
fuel to the,ore. The important point
is that when the time comes to build up
an iron industry to supply the Pacific
Coast and the export trade to the East
—which may not be far distant—the
raw material will not be lacking and it
seems reasonably certain that it will be
among the best of its kind "

Of all tbe mines in the Sloean there is not one that is
managed with greater business tact, and with so little noise to
attract applause as the Monitor mine of Three Forks. Manager Gintzburger does not do his mining, through the columns
-i     of a newspaper.   But he goes after the ore for its value, not to
f     boom the mine's stock, and—he finds it.

Monitor last Sunday. The strike was made in the lower level,
No. 4 tunnel, where the main ore shoot has been developed for
a distance of 275 feet on the horizontal. The paystreak shows
in tho drift three feet of solid oro, *-Miit,h ovory indioation ot it
opening into a very large ore body.
A raise has been driven on the ore shoot from Xo. 4- to
No. 3 tunnel, a distance of 122 feet, and the ore was found
absolutely continuous, from 8 inches to three feet in thickness.
The strike made iii the lowest-developed level is conclusive proof that the ore shoot goes down, and, also, that it
increases in width with.depth.

• Good Progress Reported, and Permanent Officers
Elected—Officers Greatly Encouraged.
At the meeting of the.. Tourist Association held Thursday evening in the
Clever hall, there were in attendance
upwards of 50 citizens. The meeting-
was most enthusiastic throughout, being addressed at considerable length
by Mr. Ryan and Mr Sproat The
temporary committee appointed at the
initial meeting of the association, reported a registered membership of 50.
Communications were read from the
secretary of the Nelson Association, setting forth the objects of that organization and offering encouragement to the
local association. The secretary of the
Nelson body will visit New Denver in a
short time, when it will be decided upon what basiii the New Denver association will be conducted.
It was the opinion of all present that
the local association should preservers

At the meeting of tho Tourist Association the other night Henry Stege
voiced the sentimentB of every loyal
citizen when lie said: "We want to
make of this association something that
will benefit onr town; we want no one
to look upon it lightly, but as a real,

With siieh Hcntimont underlying th
Association at its inception, and with a
thorough, practical understanding of
its objects by its members, it will ae-
complisli all that iu iuo*t optimistic advocates hope for,     But the tai»k under.
Are they tourists that indulge in these
gay recreations?    In a  small degree,
yes; but by tar the greater, number are
resident Californians, who are not content to point the way for visitors to enjoy life, but are determined to lead in
tlie enjoyment.     Nothing- attracts attention to a point of interest  like a
crowd.   Of   all the  residents  of New
Denverwho point with so much pride
to the glacier, we venture to say that
not one in 20 has ever visited it andean
realize its  magnitude  and grandeur.
How many have stood upon its glassy
surface  and looked down upon New
Denver and scanned the rugged mountain and placid lake scenery from its
lofty height?   How many have climbed
any of the mountains towering above
us and looked down upon the lake as it
sparkles in the sunlight or tlie glorious
moonlight.   We have all stood in won-
the lake and upwards and around at
the great snow-capped mountains and
deep canyons in, the moonlight, but how
many realize what the sight must be
from a mountain top in the dead of a
moonlight night;-1
There is work for the Association.
Many of its members have always had
the desire to see the points of interest
hereabouts. (Jet up glacier parties to
make the trip in two days, or a week,
as the crowd may decide. Make it convenient for ladies to participate in the
outings. Rnconratfo camping parties.'
Six-Mile falls parties, I ion ting parties,
lishing parties, picnic parties—anything
that is clean and oxhilcrating anil will
bring the interests of ail under the
head of one. Let tlie. Association pro*
vide systematically for the enjoyment
of our own people hy combining with
those, of Sandon, Three Forks, and the
lake towns, not as ;wi Association, hut-
to enable I hem to join with us in seeing
nml gelling all there is in mid out of
our great beauty spots. The tourists
will come when we can demonstrate to
thein that we, have Houiething hero that
interests and captivates our own people.

every Thursday and has never lieen raided by tlie sheiilT, 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 boll
should be administered to the wicked in large doses. It has stoou the test of time, and an ever-increasing paystreak is proof that It is
better to tell the truth, oven if the heuvens do occasionally hit our smokestack, k chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Come in and see us, but do not put 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 thii noblest works of creation is tho man who always pays the printer; he is

had astonishing luck. The same
number came up five times in, succession—an Unusual thing. It
made a great sensation in the room,
and people gathered about. At
the fifth turn of the number he
swiped in everything from the

French banknotes into his pockets

Iqss effort to increase bis capital.
Roulette to many is very fascinating, although the chances for winning are vastly in favor of the
dealer. Xo system has yet been
found whereby it is possible to
break the bank. Only a short time
ago Lord Rosslyn attempted to
break the bank at Monte Carlo. He
announced in England that be had
an.in fallible system and only needed
■$50,000 to make it go. People!
tumbled over each other to give j
him the money. He began by i
playing with thousand franc notes, !
until he finally got down to playing
live franc pieces. There, is no such
thing as breaking the bank at
Monte Carlo or beating roulette
under any circumstances, yet the
game wherever started always finds
sufficient admirers to make it profitable for the owners of the tables.
A man who has lived at Monte
Carlo for years says that the gambling houses paid returns as regularly as dividends on the New York
Central railway. A gentleman
who visited" the place gives the following account of the renowned
gambling place;
"Rattlesnakes are grateful if you
gain their affection," says a correspondent of the Corsicana. Tex.,
News. "My brother Jim found a
six-foot rattlesnake near town,
caught him under a boulder, and,
instead of using his advantage, he
sympathetically released the snake,
which thereupon became a pet and
followed Jim about and guarded
him as faithfully as a dog. One
night he was awakened, and, missing the snake in its usual place at
the foot of the bed, he knew that
something was wrong. He got up
and lighted a match to investigate,
and found a burglar "in the next
room in the coils   of  the   snake,
which had its tail out of the   window rattling for the police."
There were a few tense moments
in the Methodist church of Mt.
Holly, N. J., on a late Sunday
evening when a well-known member of the , congregation, who had
fallen asleep during the sermon,
awoke sufficiently, at the end to
realize that he had gone to bed
with his clothes oil, and began undressing. As he was in a pew by
himself, he had made considerable
progress toward disrobing before
anybody interfered to arose him

II! H.ni: VRIIKk, Man«ver Ninth Year.
THE LEDtfE, ...NEW DENVER, B. (J., APRIL 3, 1902.
Heinze and Copper Crust
Montana, which produces about
$50,000,000 in copper annually,
inevitably became the battle ground
of the kings of the copper industry.
Here Daly and Clark met and millions were expended in the fierce
conflict of the financial giants.
Here, also, clashed the Amalgamated Copper and Heinze interests,
and that was a memorable war for
the ascendency, one which affected
the copper markets of the world,
and which presented the unusual
spectacle of a single individual
meeting successfully the attacks of
one of the most powerful combinations of capital on the western continent. He not only warded off
the blows of his unscrupulous and
determined enemies, but entered
into an aggressive fight in which
he came out victorious,
F. August Heinze   was   born of
German parentage 32 years ago in
Brooklyn, -N. Y.    His father   had
been a successful business man and
young   Heinze   received a liberal
education.    He  was   educated in
Germany,   arid,   coming  back to
America, graduated at the Columbia   University.     He   was   well
equipped with a thorough   knowledge of metallurgy, mineralogy aud
geology of the great battle for millions which   he   fought   with   the
great copper trust.
The story of that fight is an interesting one and has never been
told from its inception to the end
of the struggle.
When young Heinze, fresh from
college, arrived in Butte twelve
years ago as the., engineer for the
Boston and Montana Company,
Daly, Clarke and the Lewisohus
had acquired the largest copper
properties in Montana. He saw
the immense possibilities of the
camp and with his brother, Arthur
a great deal of the food it consumes.
Large quantities of wheat are imported from this country   through
•Marseilles and other  ports.   The
held possession and the property is iatest statistics show that  in   the
now worth $10,000,000. In fact,
in two years the young engineer
had spent $1,500,000 on developing mines which are now worth
" As an illustration of his indomitable energy and perseverance the
following incident in the fight with
the Butte and Boston people may
be told:
That company had acquired their
title to one-half of the Snohomish
mine from Jim Larkin,an inebriate
whose reason had been dethroned
by liquor add who afterward died
in a madhouse. Heinze knew this
and also knew that such a sale was
legally void and could be annulled.
He began a search for Larkin's
only heir, a daughter, who had left
the camp years before , with her
mother, leaving no trail. Detectives were employed to trace the
girl and the continent was scoured.
It was a long chase, but the girl
was finally located in the cabin of
a pioneer in ' Eastern Oregon, 150
miles from civilization.
Heinze began to untangle the
legal skein and restored to the
daughter of Jim Larkin her legal
rights, thus crippling his opponents. He obtained from her possession of the other half of the
valuable mine, giving her in exchange property which has made
her independently wealthy.
The Amalgamated Copper Company, with Marcus Daly at its
head,theLewisohnsand the Boston
people now joined forces to crush
Heinze. Their candidates went to
the Legislature; the executive of
the State was under their control
and even the courts were said to
be swayed by their influence. The
press was subsidized by them and
the combination seemed to be invincible, „	
tourist season of 1901 the amount
of vegetables brought into the country was about 20,000 tons,of which
nearly two-thirds came from Germany. France and Italy contributed most of the remainder.
The Swiss Government is not
satisfied with the comparatively
small return made by the fields and
gardens of the country. They are
endeavoring now to stimulate
greater attention to agriculture and
gardening. They say it is unfortunate for the republic to spend so
much of the money received from
tourists in buying food with which
to feed them. They especially ask
that the area devoted to vegetables
be largely increased in order to reduce the great amount of imports
which of late years has been growing very rapidly.
"From a mining camp with a
reputation for bloodshed that extends to the oceans," says the
Leadville, Col., Democrat, "Lead-
ville has developed into one of the
most upright cities of the country,
as free from violence and crime of
any kind as a Kew England village.
The result has been brought about
through the influence of the good
women of the community. They
worked for the election of officials
who could be intrusted to inforce
the laws and make the city and
country a most undesirable place
for law breakers and vagrants, and
their moral influence throughout
the years has been most beneficial
in this respect. They have developed a city of home and good
government from a mining camp
with a record."
The authorities have refused to
copyright a Scotch whiskey label
that bears in large staring letters
"King Edward VII.'' They claim
that the names bf living people are
their own property, and that other
people have no right to demand a
proprietary interest in them. They
also suggest that it would be well
for the whiskey men to get King
Edward's consent before taking any
such liberty as the one proposed.
But who expects that the king will
consent to this use of his name?
He would be foolish if he did.
Just picture a line of thirsty men
ranged along a bar.
"Fill your glasses, gentlemen,"
says the man who buys, and they
solemnly pass the bottle of "King
Edward VII.'' along the line. "A
toast, gentlemen. Up with your
glasses. Are you all ready? Then
down with the king."
And they solemnly down him.

for sale.   It had been worked out,
everybody said.    Heinze examined
it, purchased it, and went back to
New York and organized the Montana   Ore   Purchasing   Company.
Tho Hams had been bought on easy
terms, Heinze paying part cash and
giving his notes for  the   balance.
Alter the mine was opened it was

Although the Germans as a class

One day a couple of years ago a

But Heinze organized a plan of
campaign which spread consternation   among   his    enemies.     He
entered politics   with   the  slogan
"the people of Montana agamBt tlie
trusts.''   He took the platform and
roasted his enemies as the enemies

The lumber barge "Lucy" had
been loading all morning at the
Delta Company's wharf, writes
Kenneth Herford in the Pilgrim.
The sweet-swelling, smooth pine
boards were piled high upon her
deck, and in the little wharf office
Captain Swanson sat in a swivel
chair looking out at the stevedores,
who, bending beneath the long
loads they carried on their shoulders, moved hither and thither before him, living symbols of labor.
As he gazed out the window, a
knock fell upon the door,, and he
shouted a gruff "come in."
The man who entered was un- j
kempt, short, and red-faced.
"I seen yer advertisement in th'
paper, "he said, ' - 'bout yer want-
in' a cook, au' come down t' see ef
ye hed one yit."
"Are you a cook?" the captain
"Yew bet I be; I'm about th'
cookiest cook thet ever trod a deck.
Is th' job open?"
It was; indeed, the loss of his
cook had seriously disturbed Captain Swanson. The stranger was
"Better git right down in the
galley and git dinner," the captain
"Whattel I give 'em?" the
stranger asked.
"Oh,give'em rice; that's fillin'."
' 'All right; how many men be
they t' feed?"
The captain counted on his
"Twenty-five," he replied.
The stranger thereupon disappeared in the hold of the boat. He
found a huge bag of rice and an old
pair of scales. Filling a wash-
boiler with water, he set it on the
fire. He weighed out twenty-five

Don't conclude that he is looking
for a barren spot in the scenery
upon which to plant trees.
He's only looking for tourists.
When you see our editor strolling up the street,
Bent in a deep brown study,
Do not think that he is   experi
encing the agony of giving birth to
a new thought.
He is manipulating a mathematical problem in his mind to find
out how much longer you are going
to delay pay ment of your delinquent subscription.
Do not be deceived.
The wag of a dog'w tail is to ho
trusted rather. than tho sickly,
slimy shake of many a man's hand.
Do not be deceived.
There are precious few old maids
who'could not. have been   married
The man had popped.
Do not deceive yourself by believing that you will be given a
reserved seat in heaven on tho
biography that is engraved upon
your headstone.
If you are unhappy it i.s nut an
indication of another's fault;
Hut, points to your striving harder to make yourself happy than to
make other people happy.

nearer the top of the boiler rose the
rice. The cook seized a dipper and
a> pan and dipped out a quantity of
the rice, Again it boiled up. He
seized another pan.. It was now
boiling over faster than he could
dip. Every dish and pan in the
galley was filled. He turned over
tho keg on which he had sat and
filled that. Still the miraculous
boiler con tin ed to boil over. At
last, in sheer despair and fright, he
rushed upon the deck crying:
"Mate, mate! For th' love o'
Gawd, don't take on enny more
lumber; we gotta cargo o' rice!"
And with that he was over the
rail and speeding up the wharf.
The next day another advertisement appeared in the ■flazotte, asking for a cook on the barge "Liiey."'
