The Burns boys, who are working  on the May Queen, Lave a tunnel run  in a distance of forty feet. They have  encountered some good stringers of ore.  Tbey will continue work on the property all winter. ,  D. M. McVicat* is buildinga short,  tramway between the E. P. U. and  Gold Finch properties, both of which  he is working, to shorten the wagon  .haul in getting out the high grade ore  common to Doth mines. When completed it will reduce the cost of transportation considerably. Both properties are said, to be looking well.  The Betts. and Hesperus group, on  Hardy mountain, is exceeding expectations in good ore showings. At a  depth of sixty feet the shaft is in solid  ore, carrying good values. That this  property %vill prove to be a mine there  is but little doubt from the present outlook. Adjoining properties are being  sought after, and good prices are offered for.claims in that vicinity. Indications of a mining boom in the  spring are growing stronger every  day.   .-.  The Victor and Thi rty-scven claims,  in' Summit camp, have been bonded by  the Granby Consolidated from. j. B.  Henderson, of this' cityj/for 520,000.  The group adjoins the "-Senator claim,  which the same' -eo?n'p-iny recently  bonded from Chris. Tobiassen: Both  claims have a big surface-showing of  iron ore, which the Granby company  'wiiru'&e"as;ai!.ux at.the smelter. --Mr.  Henderson loeated the claims'in 1895.  They are of full size -and: have- "a -"lead  150 feet wide.   - .'���.:>���'������'-'���     ���     " o-,  I'lioonlx Pioneer.  Over 400 men are employed at the  Granby mines in this camp, being the  - largest number in the history.of Phoe-  nix.' .-   " "  Ore is being hauled from the Senator  claim, in Summit camp, to the railway,  for shipment to the Granby smelter.  Hard rock has been reached in the  No. 4 tunnel of   the Granby mines,  lake the place of horsepower in the  Nos. 1 and2 tunnels.  A good sleigh road has been built  for the accomodation of, the Rhdderick  Dhu claim, in [Long Lake camp, and  three cars of high grade oro are ready  for shipment, the development thus  far having given good results. Shipments will be made' as soon as there is  sufficient snow. ..'���::  Owing to the fact that but one of the  slag-hauling locomotives was in use at  the Granby smelter, the six furnaces  have not been treati ng quite as much  ore this week as they might... The  second locomotive, however, is expected to be in commission by Monday,  when the tonnage shipped and treated  will be increased. *  YMIR MINING NOTES.  From the criticism aud comments of the Opposition  in the Legislature, it is evident that that party is solid  only in opposition. - Mr. Macdonald would do well to  give evening lectures to his followers to explain bis  policy to them. Messrs. Henderson, Oliver, Mclnnes  and Drury can hardly be described'as unanimous on,-  any subject. ' '      '  Ymir Brirror.  It is reported from Gold Cup that as  soon as rawhiding is practicable the  mine will begin regular shipments.  An extra force of men have been put  on at the Fog Horn mine, and it is  hoped to carry on work all through tho  winter.  A few extrame-i have been put to  work at the Wilcox to keep up with  winter work. It is expected to produce  gold bricks with due regularity.  Norman Carmichael, the mining en  gineer of the Hunter V, visited the  property, accompanied by his brother,  on . Thursday, and found work progressing satisfactorily. , ;Mr. Carmi-  eliaei's' brother is' also a*": mining engi-  neer, aild has just retumed from the  Ael i:i. district.- -.-, '7  ���SLOCAN MINING NOTES.  just outskle;the Pioneer oflice, the bore  being under cover about CO or 70' feet'"  Application has been made by the  Granby Co. to the legislature for permission to run a tunnel a mile or more  in length to tap the Phoenix ore bodies  at greater depth, " ...   '  Operations' at ��� "the Cariboo, Camp  McKinuey, have been temporarily discontinued, and in the meantime it is  probable that the plant for treating the  ore wjll.be added to. ���..-������������'.  It ls expected that, the ��� repairs having beeiicompleted and the new castings finally'having been placed, both  Bides of the GO drill compressor -at tho  Granby mines will be in use to-day.  The Ella aiid Dumphree claims, near  the Betts and Hesperus group, on  Hardy ��� mountain were taken over by  Boston capital this week, and development work started without delay. .'  * Next Thursday is the December  payday at the Granby mine?, when  somethihg'-ov'ei- 400' men will receive  their paychecks, and nearly 300 at the  smelter will be similarly favored.  The' second slag ha uling locomotive  arrived at the Granby smeller this  week, somewhat relieving the first one,  whieh had almost more than it c :tild  -do to haul away the slug from four of  the furnaces.  At the Granby mines machine sbep  work has been commenced on some  new mine ore cars, which, will hold  about ten tons. They will be used in  connection with the two small locomotives recently ordered, which will  Slocan Drill.

Since he has been dismissed from the Conservative  party, the member for Nelson has been discovered by.  the Liberal press to be an honest and able man. "We  always said he would be more at home in a Liberal  committee-room.  The Opposition were at first disgusted because they  belieyed the Government intended to do uothing tjh'is,  year but repair provincial finances. Now they- are*  in a "panic lest aid may be given to necessary rail-!  ways. What can the Government do or leave undone that will please our friends? ��� ��� A ���.  Mr. Stuart Henderson's wit caused paroxysms of  laughter among his associates.

To-night the university graduates resident in Nelson will organize a club for the discussion of matters  of special interest to'theru.

As far as  can be judged from the perusal of. it, tbe said order  should never have been issued.  , Senator Hamden's Black Serenaders played to an  almost empty house.

Sandon will  repeal  theatrical shows.  her $5 tax on  Curlers are greatly disappointed on  account afthe absence of ice.  We are within' less than a month of the municipal  elections aud ho interest seems to be taken in them.  Of course there is no great issue before the citizens  such as the building of the municipal power plant.  Perhaps this is for the best, there will be nothing to  influence citizens for any ticket and the only object of  the electors will be to secure"a capable council to  transact the city's business. It is rumored that Aid.  Irving contemplates retiring from the board. If this  is correct, it is to be regretted. Aid Irving is one of  the most industrious members the council bas ever  had.     ���"   '���  There-organization of several industries in Nelson,  nand increase of capital invested, most of it locally, is  a healthy sign of the faith of our citizens iu the prosperity, present and future, of the city.  The Emily Edith mine, Silverton,  is up for sale ;or lease.-'.;  Ore continues in sight in the shaft  on the American Bell. A-'.  A force of 65 men is employed at the  Enterprise and more will be put on..  Eignt feet of ore is exposed in the  drift on the Hope, one of the Eiith  group.   ���    "     "  n' A ' 7:.'.  Should silver continue to drop there  is a strong possibility of the Enterprise  closing down.  Work is to be stilted by the owners  on tha Happy Medium group 'on  Twelve Mile Creek.  Certificates of improvement have  been issued the Hampton,,Ethel K.  and Ping Pong fraction.  Sam Long took a pack train to  Lemon on Saturday, to bring dewn  half a carload of ore from the Kilo.  Bob Allen sent an outfit of horses to  Lemon creek Wednesday, to convey  tlie-McNaught party to the Kilo for  au examination.  Two and one-half feet of ore was  struck this week on tho 700 foot level  of the Humbler-Cariboo. It assays  from 150 to 200 oz in silver. ������,  Freighting on the Ten Mile road  has been stopped owing to the lack of  snow. The -Enterprise has a large  quantity of ore to come down.  Two men have been working lately  on the Argeutite fraction, adjoining  the Dayton. They have uncovered  six inches of good ore, similar in character to that on the Port Hope.  The second dance of the Success Club given in the  club's building ^Wednesday night was a success iii  every particular. About eighty people spent a very1  pleasant evening in daiiciugto excellent musicand-all"  enjoyed themselves. The next dance will be given on  Wednesday, the 30th inst.j and there is no reason to  doubt that it will be equally enjoyable and equally  well patronized. .  The mining season now closing has been decidedly  encouraging and the prospects lor future development  have never been brighter. The bounty on le*d has  not been productive yet of all the benefit expected  from it. This ha3 probably been due to several  causes; mines that have been long idle cannot be made  to produce to their full capacity. There was for a time  some indefitiiteness and uncertainty as to the disposal  of the bounty. But ugxt year these causes will  not be operating and a banner year may be .confidently  predicted. The mineral wealth of Southern Kootenay is as yet only sampled.  The benchers-of the Inner Temple recently refused  to admit a woman to the practice of law. Appeal was  taken from this decision to the House of Lords, whose  judicial committee decided that the practice of law  was never intended for women and that they had no  precedent and no power to reverse the decision of the  benchers. The bar was in a panic for a while. Mere  men would certainly have no chance in a contest with  the powers of persuasion of a lady advocate.  >'���' The Olympia Opera Company ,will'be heard in  Nelson for ' a week during Jannary. Miss Lottie  Kendall is the prima donna. The opening piece will  be "Said Pasha."  There are a hundred and twenty or more gentlemen  of Nelson who are swearing at the clerk of the  weather because there is uo ice ou which they may  wave brooms, wear tarn o'shanters and yell. Inci-  cidentally they will even propell curling-stones.  =���NexHfhursday-evening the-pupils^of^NelsoirHigh  School will entertain their friends at an At Home in  the. High School building. This is rather an original  form of closing exercises, but Nelson is unique in  many things.  "This Ls a gay season in the Queen city, hardly an  evening passes without a dance, an opera, a concert,  or some other attraction, and frequently several occur  in one evening. This may not indicate anything  at alt, but poverty-stricken towns don't usually indulge.  No  accidents  from  coasting  have  beeu reported during the past week.  Work on the new machine shop is  progressing rapidly.  Slocan will probably elect ite mayor  and aldermen by acclamation.  A big whale paid Nanaimo a visit  the other day, comiDg in as far as Protection Point.  A teachers' convention is to be held  af Vernon after the Christmas holidays.  It is probable that another sawmill  will be built In Nelson, to employ  about twenty hands.  "Walter P. Dockrill was married last  Wednesday at Rossland to Miss Nellie  Sutton of Grand Forks.  lt seems practically certain that a  large sawmill will be erected at Rose-  bery in the spring;, easterners belngbc-V  hind the scheme.  It is said that the many friends of  Mr. A. J. Marks are urging biai to allow himself to be nominated fur the  councillor the ensuing year. ;i  There will be a concert under tbe  auapices of St. Saviour's Sunday  School on the evening of December 30.  B. S. Heisterman has been appointed  trustee to tbe Green-Worlock estate in  place of the late Mr. Mackenzie Cle-  land.  Tbe commercial travellers are getting east as fast as they can, so as to  reach home in time for the Christmas  holidays.  Mrs. Joan Dunsmuir has applied to  become a party to the suit iu the "famous Dunsmuir will case, now before  the courts at Victoria.  Contractor Gillett haa been busy this  week getting thednllshed read v for the  reception of Lord Dundonald, G. O. C,  who will visit here next week.  Mike Bartlett, formerly of the Slocan, was acquitted in Seattle last week  of the charge of murdering his wife.  He pleaded extreme justification.  _JV.,C.^WellsJ=M.L.

Bholto Gillespie, the young son of  Mr. George Gillespie, of Victoria, had  bis leg cut open with glass for a distance of some inches while playing  football near Rev. Mr. Bolton's School.  . An order has been issued by the Postoffice Department for the exclusion for the future from the Canadian maiteof the Phj'sical Culture Magazine, which  is published in New York, and notice thereof has bean  received by the Postmaster here. Why this has been  done, it is difficult to understand. A physical culture  magazine, couducted upon proper lines, should be an  excellent magazine to be admitted into a family, and  of four such magazines which the writer has had an  opportunity of perusing during the past year this one  seems to be by far the best of them. This magazine  may have antagonized certain interests by the persistency with which it has attacked them and their  methods in the public interest, alleged therein to be  fraudulent. Have these interests been able to in-  1 fluence the Government of Canada? It is to ba hoped  .^British Columbia again leads. We have a Socialist leader, Mr. J, H. Hawthornthwaite, of Nanaimo  city, who has discovered that the interests of tbe  laboring classes lie with the Conservative party, not  with the corporation-ridden Liberals. And, stranger  still, his constituents recognize the honesty" and sagacity of his decision. There's hope for democracy  yet.  Fred. S. Hussey, superintendent of Provincial Police, is in Nelson to-day. It is over five years since  Mr. Hussey visited Nelson, and of course he finds  many changes, but all for the better.  The Nelson Boot Club will hold another of their  pleasant dances, at the Opera  House  next Friday  The body of Mrs. F.

The Swede group at Poplar is working two shifts on from four to five feet  of fine high grade ore, which hastho  appearance of galena, but carries very  littlesilrer and as high as $530 in gold.  The ore is being sacked for shipment.  The investigation into the circumstances surrouuding the murder of the  Chinese merchant atSteveston is leading to intercstiug developments. Tbe  three Chinese witnesses who endeavored to fix the guilt on a Japanese are  in turn under arrest for perjury and  there is an action for libel pending  against a Vancouver evening newspaper.  The concert ofthe Schubert Spmpbony and Lady  Quartette, at tbe Opera House last evening, was  highly enjoyable, every selection being encored.  Six naughty Nanaimo boys, accused  of .stealing chickens and liquidating  tho proceeds iu cigarettes and other  contraband, have come under Magistrate Yarwood's notice. He thinks  them too young to send to the Reformatory, but the parents are unwilling  to guarantee the good behavior of their  offspring to the extent of $100 a head.  Hence a quandary.  The announcement tbat J. H. Tonkin, late manager of the Crow's Nest  Coal Mines, was a defaulter, has caused  Tiorae suprise. If what Is alleged in the  warrant.-) for his arrest oe true, Tonkin  would have been richer than Rockefeller in a few years.

The teacher of.a country school asked  hta pupils one day if any oE them could'  tell him.-, who Joan of Arc wns. The  question was followed by profound silence. Some of the pupils stated at the  teacher, and some turned and.stared at  one another, as if seeking information  tit the faces around'them.--Finally a boy  burst out with: ���'���"Oh, res, I-know; she  V^a.3 Noah's wife."  Once, ,vhen thev were talking literature, Mrs. Isobel Strong said L-o Robert  Louis Stevenson: "At least you have no  manner-isms." Whereupon Stevenson  took a copy of his own "Merry Men,'  vlii-ch she was reading, out of her hands,  and read. "It was a wonderful clear  night of stars;" "Oh," he said, "how  many, many times I have written 'a wonderful clear night of stars.'"  111 18S5 an Englishman and his wife  ���-were being driven about Ireland ,by a  ���rather melancholy jarvey, who could sec  no silver lining to the cloud overshadowing Ids country and his own particular  ���trade.

Of  all/the "woman journalists in "London it  is safe to say she is the most brilliant  linguist. Indeed, ifc was her facility in  tongues which won her her place on the  'Pall Mall Gazette.' Having got acquainted with Mr. Stead when he was  about to edit that-papjsr, he asked her  to_ join him as -his secretary, and ��� in a  little while she began contributing to the  paper. Mr. Stead made no difference between his., contributors on account of  sex. He exacted precisely the- same  standard of work from men and women,  and considered that that-work slioitld be  .paid for iu exactly the same way���-a fact  worth insisting on, as it by no means  generally obtains even to-day."  Five women have had tho pleasure of  combining the functions of proprietor  and editor: -  "Mrs. Bedford Fehwick ahares with  .Mrs. Woodhull Martin and-Mrs. George  Cornwallis West, as they did with Mrs.  Fen wick Miller and Mrs. Arthur Stan-  uard, when they were cditoi-3, the dis-  Unction-of owning her own paper."

Eight srpecial trains, over as many  railroads, have been engaged to carry  John Alexander Dowie and his '���Restoration Host" to NfjiV -York. City next  month. A "great mission" is to be held in  Madison Square Garden from October IS  to November 1.

The Most Popular Viceroy.  . Lord   Dudley, -who'   is   considered   the  most popular Viceroy Ireland  has ever  '. had, is a remarkable man in many ways.  " ITc is'one of the richest peers in Great  i" Britain.   Ho has no need of his salary of:  j ? 100,000  a year us Lord Lieutenant of  ! Ireland.   Indeed, the coat of maintaining  j his   vice-regal   office' far   exceeds -that  ! sum.    His collieries in the "Black Coun-.  try"  alone return  him  orer  $200,000  a'  year, and he also owns deposits^ of min-  aorals   iu  Staffordshire     and   Worcestershire, iron works, agricultural estates in  various  parts   of  Knglasd; and  plantations in Jamaica and other West Indian  islands.   Shortly after Lord Dudley was  made Viceroy he toured Ireland in his  automobile with Lady Dudley, and when  thoy  returned  to Dublin  he had  made  hosts of friends  everywhere, and  there  . was  haYdly a phase o f  Irish life  with  \vhich he was unfamiliar.

Mrs. Humphry "Ward is known to th��  world chiefly as a novelist, yet one of  Jhe most active aspects of her life is  ��er. philanthropic work among the set-  ���lements of London. Especially is she  interested in the "raw material of young  life that populate the congested slums  it the East End, and the institution  "Ihich. lies nearest "'her heart and of  Arhich-'.she" is most proud isthe Vaeatioii  School founded by her in'Bloomsbury in  jonjunction with the Passmo.re Edwards  Settlement in Tavistock Place.

Her  publishers promise that before the end  Df the month vre 9hall have a new book  from her radium-tipped pen, called "My  Friend, Annabel Lee." They write that  the young lady has been living quietly  In Boston, working on this book. It Is  hard to imagine Mary doing anything  quietly. ,,,  ���Miss Cprelli is always funny when sho  is hysterical, and she is nearly always  hysterical. ��� Her loud protestations  against the desecration of Stratford by  a Carnegie free library were thu first  act of- a howling farce whieh-'hns no\Y_  reached its climax. Sidney Lee, a schol-"  ar_ whose greatest fault i3 thut he is  quite incapable of hysteria or any other  manifestation of feeling, says that the'  cause of Miss Corelli's objection is that  she oriee tried to get the site in dispute  for a free library of her own, but found  the price too high. Miss Corelli, in a  voice shriller Uian ever, retorts that Mr.  Lee is a mean thing, and calls on her  solicitors to hale hiin to the courts.  Then she writes another pamphlet, calls  it "The Plain Truth About the Stratford-  on-Avon Controversy," and sends it out  as her final vindication.  A good story is told of Professor .1000  of Oxford. In the classroom immediately above hia own Professor Veitc'h lectured on logic. One day the peroration  of the professor of logic was greeted  with sueh rapturous applause, that it  brought down some pieces of ceiling in  the room below. As the bits of plaster  dropped about his room Professor Jebb  quietly remarked, "Gentlemen, our premises will not support the conclusion of  the professor of logic."  Congressman Charles N. Fowler of  New Jersey tells a story of a small boy  who was over supplied with green apples.  "I had .gone to see one of my constituents down in Union County,' said the  Congressman, "and found him trying to  give some medicine to a young son who  bad eaten too many green apples, whiU-  a Christian Science neighbor was assuring the boy that there was nothing at  all the matter witJh him. 'I think ^1  ought to know,' __ groaned the boy. 1  3iuLu V-ra irot .inaids iflioarmatipa."  >oeoee0O0oec>&0$0e<*K  - 7-f-AAl  '.-��,/.
