Every old miner is not a rich man,  nor is every rich miner an old one.  Many, very many, who joined in  blazing trails to the El Dorados in the  far west, who have built their humhle  log cabins where prosperous towns ov  cities have long siuce displaced them,  who set tlieir stakes and spent months  or years to develop prospects into  paving mines, whose hopes nf striking  wealth ended not in fruition, whoso  tenacity of purpose and bulldog hang-  onativeness led them, over and over  again, to venture their time, their  In bor, their all in other equally disastrous ventures, have either passed  "over tlie range" to prospect for <\  home "not madu with hands, eternal  in the heavens," or are now with  whitened locks or furrowed cheeks,  with bent forms and faltering steps,  patiently waiting for the summons to  lay aside their picks, pans and shovels  and drills and spoons and hammers,  and go up higher where short, water  and barren rock are known no more  forever.  We say there are many old miners  waiting to join their comrades who  have gone to lind a bonanza, in the  Great Beyond and who leave tbe world  as they enteied it with nothing to  claim save the air they breathed." But  they have done a good work, they  lived not in vain. Fifty years ngo  they crossed the Missouri river and  entered the "Great American Desevt."  into an almost unknown country,  bearing their lives in tlieir hands,'  meetiug and overcoming obstacles and  dangers of which they knew not,"  frightening or driving the savages of  the plains from their pathway and the  less savage animals from their lairs,  but defying all, followed the setting  sun on its course to tlie golden sands  of the Pacific, where they founded an  empire in doni-iin.astoi'ehtiuseahounding in gold. But they huilded. better  than they knew. They opened the  way for others to follow. In blazing  the trail to the Pacific they passed  over great stretches of plains arid  mountains, out of. which Nebraska,  Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Nevada  have been carved each' treasure .vault  from wliich" countless- millions.have  been emptied into the busy world's  channels of triule.c_i~ei~.ting millionaires  and multi-millionaires while the trail  blazers themselves .-were- awakening  echoes In camps that added more  millions to the wealth of countries and  their people.  All hail to the-old miner! He opened the gates through which the more  fortunate, passed to wealth. He uncomplainingly endured the privations  and hardships whicli. are ever the  handmaids <..f tlie pioneer. His yntiih  disappeared in his combats with an  adverse fnrlune. Middle-age claimed  him before he finished his battle, and  old age has seized him. Physically  broken down, but rejoicing, he has  lived to see an empire in the west, "all  of wliich he saw and part of which he  wns." Envy possesses not the old  miner's soul. It will be a short only  when the 'busy, hustling, bustling  throng now around him, grasping for  the "almighty dollar," will also travel  the road leading to the unknown here-  after, which he is prepared to take  when the signal is given to "strike  camp."���������Western Mining World.  i***-*'***********'***^**** 79 ;y^^r^r'r^rtf������w^r.r*e#*g#*^  HOSTILE TOWARDS GOVERNMENT  Complete Change of Sentiment Leaves  the Semlin'Ministry Friendless  Vancouver, Aug. 2(5.���������Dr. F. S.  Reynolds, proprietor of the Ashcroft  Journal, said in an interview with a  local paper, today:   -  -  " According to the best accounts the  temper of the people of Cariboo has  had a very decided change since the  In������t provincial election. It is now a  question of a dead-set opposition  against the present government, and.  in the event nf a general election,  neither of the present uieinbers could  possibly be returned.  " The Journal supported the present  government.���������the then opposition���������at  thu last election, but, witli other sensible people, its opinions have changed  since.  " Mr. Helgesen's announcement of  his change of heart, is about the latest  news of our section." said the doctor.  "I have been told���������I don't know nny-  ihing about it myself���������that it would  be almost dangerous for Mr. Helgesen  to show himself in Barkerville at the  present time, sn decided is tlie feeling  all through Caribno against the general conduct of affairs."  " What is yonr opinion in the event  of a general elect ion ? "  " I think that 05 per cent, of the  votes would be cast against them, and  perhaps 5 per cent, for them. It would  be simply impossible for them to lie  elected. Everybody seems in opposition to the present government, and  anyone could beat either of the present  members. There would be no doubt  of that. The mining laws enacted  under the policy of the Hon. Mr. Hume  have heen most unpopular and T think  you will find this all tbtwugh the  upper caiftttry."

One result of the accident to an east-  bound freight four niiles oast of Donald, about one o'clock Monday morning, and which interrupted telegraphic  communication at that point, was to  give us an interesting example of the  capabilities of the Canadian' Pacific  and the American-Postal Telegraph  systems. On receiving the report nf  the accident Supt. Duchesnay, at Revelstoke, was anxious to.instruct Field  regarding the wrecking outfit and  make arrangements for cle'ar-ing the  wreck. In a few minutes a direct wire  to Field was arranged which enabled  Supt. Duschesnay.to make allaii-anf?-.'-  rnents direct. Considering the .fact  that thib wire circled the continent  with the exception of a few miles, it is  certainly a wonderful illustration of  the perfection oft he C.P.R. and Postal  Telegraph systems.

McMillan at Donald, operators, handled  the wire, which worked to perfection.  ���������Golden Era.  News From Fish Creek.  Two important new discoveries  have been made close to the mouth of  Pool creek; a 15-foot lead^located by  Mr. Tweedie, containing copper, silver,  and last, but hy no menus least. $052  in free milling gold ar.d lead, which  may prove to be the same, which  crops out at the Beatrice, containing  .a_streiik__iof;_cai'hoiiii tfes,__.jit.s_k������_ st_t wo.  feet wide, which you can scratch out  with your hands, and a mass of solid  galena ore of a thickness which  Messrs Butler and Roland will ascertain ns -soon as they can get to work at  it. W. J. Girard has also brought in  n fine lot. of quartz samples, from the  Silver Crown, on which he. is doing  assessment, work, in which the specks  of free gold are plainly visible without  a glass.  "On Lexington mountain work is  going on merrily and with "the most  cheering results. On the Kitsap the  assessment w'irk was done at the  bottom of an old shaft and iit a total  depth of 15 feet a body of ore five feet  wide wns exposed fully half of which  may be classed as shipping stuff.  About 150 feet further along the same  lead on the Lone Srai- a tunnel is being  driven, which had just touched the  same showing when my iriformani  passed.  All Eyes Upon thc Lardeau.  The Lardciin is a district that it  would be well for mining men to keep  in mind. Rosslnnders like Messrs.  Ross Thompson. K. K. Peiser. S.  Thornton Langley, F. R. Blochberger  and others have already cot interests  there. Tbey own the Kingston group.  The Silver Cup. Beatrice. Mohawk,  Nettie L. and other claims are all  known by name to renders of the mining column.  On Pool Creek, Prof. Blochberger  ownes the Bismarck group. The lead  is about 18 feet wide, giving large silver  and copper values, prospectors are  coming into tlie Lardeau in 11:1111b. is.  A strike of high grade galena and  copper on the Blue Bird, at Deer Pavk.  on Lower Arrow Lake, is repotted.  The Montana Gold Mining Company,  which ownes the property, has done  200 feet of sinking and cross-rutting,  and has been rewarded by finding a  body of fine quartz three feet and ten  inches wide, carrying a good deal of  .galena "md copper pyrites."  ANOTHER GLARING* EVIDENCE'  Of the   Neglect and   Incapacity  of the  Government's Officials.  It is nearly  two  months  now since  the   biidge  across    the   Illecillewaet  river, near McCarty's slaughter house;'  went   ont.      It  is' now   nearly   two  months since the settlers across the  Illecillewaet have been able to reach  town except on foot and  that by the  Arro.vhead    railway    bridge.     Their  horses are   tied   up   practically from"  this cause, ns the settlers do a good  deal of driving into  town for the purpose of the disposal  of their farm produce,   wood,   etc.,   which   under  the'  present   condition  of things is necessary to their financial  success.    It is'  bard enough for the pioneer farmer  here to make ends meet, and at the  same time clear lands.    It is  all  hard  uphill work in a new country like this  but   when   the government  or their  officials refuse or   neglect  to render  assistance where assistance is neces-"  sary, then   the   hard  work is all the  harder.    This   is  tlie   case   with   the  twenty-three settlers across the river.  The. biidge over  which  they travel,'  and the ouly way they can reach town  without risking the lives _of their animals by swimming the river, went out  with the flood  two  months ago.   At*  the time of the accident Gold Cornmis-  '  siotiev Coursier's attention was drawn'  to the fact.    Mr. Kellie, M. P. P..  had- '  also been   informed of this   state   of  affairs, but what is the  consequences.  Simply   this   that   the   settlers   have,  been tied up for two  months, (in  the'  best   part   of   the   year), from   sheer  neglect, or worse, hv the culpablu in-,  difference or negligence of the powers --  that   be.     Mr.  Kellie^ may say   thnt.  they have had an engineer   at   woik"  laying out plans for a new" road and  bridge which the government intend  to build.   Just so. but the Hekald, is-'  of the opinion that  it  was  in'the  inr",-  terest of these same settlers  that this  bridge should have been repaired" imv  mediately nn  receipt of the' news of  its   cb'sti uction.- '* Tbo   sum   pf ��������� $200  would have beeu'SiiHicieiit-uTput tn-a-"*-*  temporary structure for the benefit nf I  those   who   need   the   road, and  for :.  whom it is nn'absolute necessity.'  And thus it happens that people who*'-  have to depend '"entirely   upon, theiv. **  own exertions for what they'can'get'-'r  are impeded   and   inconvenienced- in ,'  their efforts while the government re- ���������"  presentative   draws   "riis   salary    and^  ignoring their glaring necessity���������doing*,  little or nothing to relieve it���������while - -  they are  bumped ,oif   with   honeyed"-  words and  lame excuses, the" victims',  of   incapacity,    negligence    and    red-.'  tiipeism.    If our government officials .'..*  paid   move .attention   to"   furthering  tlie   vital    interests   of   those   whom."  they ar ._-p.-~.id for serving than to their  own  personal   and   pecuniary   affairs  this injustice  would   notpxist.    Well,  might  the settlers  in   th's particular  locality exclaim   "Save   us  from "'our  friends."  THE SLOGAN LABOR SITUATION  Is Practically Unchanged  and   Best  of  _____i.-__Good_Eeeling_Rrevails.___-; _-_^  -The labor situation   here is practi-I  eaily   unchanged.    Most   of   our hig_  mines are doing only a little surface,',  work and adding some much  needed'  improvements   to  tlieir   bunk houses*  etc.   The   good  natured  feeling that.'  has     characterized   this     strike   still,  prevails and will no doubt outlast tbe  strike many years.'   The miners  who  have conducted themselves  as gentle-,  men,     acting    entirely   within  their,  rights have won  the confidence and"  respect not only of the business  men ;  of the Slocan, but also of these same,  mine,   managers,    who, nlteougb  the  fight was against tbein, could not bub]  admire . the     manly   light that the.  miners are waging to retain n fair rate.  of wages in the Slocan for  themselves"  and fellow   wage earners throughout  this section of our province..  With the amount" nf work now laid '  out nround onr'varioii'5  mines,  which,  must be completed befoie winter- sets  in (otherwise  Dame Nature, and  not.  the management will close.the- mines'  and thusrniis _ a loss of a year's  work '  to the stockholders) it will   puzzle  the.  mine   owners   to     find   skilled  labor  enough iri the country  to  accomplish .  it.    The   only   sufferers   through  the  present trouble have been the business -  men nf (he Slocan nnd the  holdei-s  of  stock in Slocan mining properties.   As  fnr the miners most of them have been  able lo look upon the,mat ter as a huge*  joke gotten up for their- benefit. When .  tired of being   spectators., they   hnvef  shouldered their roll  of blankets and  gone off, going to work in some other.  camp where skilled  labor  was gladly  received and  well paid.    This is   the *  most regretable feature of the  whole,  labor difficulty.���������that  there, is  being"  lost to British Columbia scores of her.  best skilled miners���������and no class will'  realize this more'tlian the mine man-"  agers when they attempt, to operate  their mines and are unable.to do so"  for the lack of  skilled   labor, which*  they were instrumental in driving ou6"  of tte'cbiinti-y'.-^ailvertonriin."

Arthur Fitzgcrald-Lascclles  sat near to the corner of the dungeon  and watched the tarantulas. Close by  the major, with chin vesting up his  drawn up knees, sat Color Sergeant  John Ilalliweil. This man hud ho  eyes for the tarantulas; his gaze was  retrospective. The dungeon'wns subterraneous to tho extent of 10 foot.  The massive walls were muckl with  damp and unwholesome air. At intervals the moisture swelled into  huge drops an 1 splashed upon tho  green floor. Sometimes one fell on  a spider and mnde him shiver, but the  tarantulas nevfir imovca; just waited,  waited.  Half an hour in this dungeon would  have cowed a savage dog. Vet into  it man had thrown liis fellow man.  To whom did it belong? To the l.ajah  of Bhltoor, -totter known as Nana  Sahib   of   execrable   memory.  In tho year '.7. when the (lames  of rebellion swept over India, every,  day was fraught with incidents dramatic, tragic, pathetic, terrible.

Knox, justice of the peace, furnished  the  toys  at  Ymir  with  considerable  entertainment. Tho party above mentioned,   who was    only,   recently  appointed   a  magistrate   was   paralyzed  with liquor, and while in that condition  held  couvt  in   the Miller  hotel.  Tho trial commenced in tho neighborhood, of'-11  p.   m.   and  ended -at   ov  about 2 a. in.   A prisoner was obtained, who   was   charged     witli   having  broken into the station safe. Lawyers  and jailors and all thai: is necessary  to vun a jail and a mill of justice wove  on hand.    I-lis wovship did not know  the difference'owing to his brain being badly  muddled  between  the witnesses.    Tliey wore taken out of tho  hack door  and   vun  in   at tlie  front.  During  the   trial   all   witnesses    and  others connected : with lhe case,  were  committed for contempt ol' court. The  prlsoner.---.vas   found-guilty  and   sentenced to a fine of $51) or in default  six months,  but upon liis 'protest the  line   was   reduced   to   15c.   this   being  tho   lowest   amount' that   the   J.

He was sent over to inspect his possessions, and-on returning to Eton confided ,to his schoolfellows that he had finally decided  to "chuck it" and what caused him to  do so was his being asked lo play  t-mnia with three other German  princes and finding that they had the  Lulls fielded for them by a squad of  soldiers, who saluted at attention  each time they handed the balls. This  was too much for the healthy, independent English school ,boy, he explained, so he promptly decided to  remain English.

Xestlcd at tlio foot ot tlie Rocky  mountains, with eternal snow upon  their summits, and yot on the pralrlo  territory of Alberta, is the settlement ot* Cai'dston, which is unique  in being tho only dwelling placo or  the followers of Joseph Smilli in the  Dominion. To reach this isolated  spot one must travel 45 miles by wagon I'roin the nearest vaiiruad, .Macleod,  and yet the diivu in summer is simply magnificent, for the tenderfoot will  ace so many variuues of naturo,  whether as regards the scenic panorama or tho beauties of tin; vegc-  .iible world. Then, it is enlivened  by the parli-colorcd and much bodlz-  enoil squaws and the painted wavriov  on his cayuse, whilst now and then  a veil coated Mounted Policeman adds  to lis novelty.

To  reach Cardslun you hnvi; lo go  through the Blood reservation,which  is aljijut 50 miles long and 25 miles  wide and sustains nearly 2,000 Indi-  aus. When 1 say sustain, I am overstepping the mark, for u more pampered individual than our Indian does  not exist. . A paternal government  gives him ihe" land, a yearly allowance and occasional catllc, whilst the  poor white settler musl. "root hog  ov die," and withal one red-coated  policeman can overawe a 'tribe of  braves, thus nullifying all the Feni-  uioro Cooper romances. Cardslon  when you reach it, will not impress  you ,except by the fact that its agricultural surroundings savor of move  cultivation than is generally thc case,  but lhen. the Mormon is a prince of  cultivators'. Founded bul a few years,  its President and sponsor-. Mr. Card,  came with a fow of the chosen from  Utah and mado it a promised land,  whero now nearly 2000 of tho people  of Zion nourish.  "A Mormon" is not a palatable op-  pellation to their ears. They tiro of  tho Church of Jesus, Christ ot Latter Day Saints, and it is onc of their  tenets, that America, or rather this  continent, is the promised laud, and  will ultimately become theirs wholly.  Thai their founders wove wonderful  men, needs no saying, and that Brigham Young as leader of tho Nau-  voo exodus was eminently biblical  in his methods is also true and his  colonization ot the great American  desert was one of the most stupendous achievements of our times, ln a  lesser degree President Card is proceeding in Alberta, as new settlements ave spreading, and when wo  add that thoy ave interested in a  canal 50 miles long, which will give  them irrigation from Cardston to  Lethbridge, and make the arid prairie into a' land ot milk and honey,  we know that then- increase aud pvos-  perity ave assured. It must be a compliment to the Dominion for President Card stated to mc that tluy  loved Canada and that our laws were  infinitely superior to those of the  Slates.  Mrs. Card��������� "Aunt Lina" ���������is a  daughter of Brigham Young, and a  woman of wonderful magnetism aud  wheu I told her that 30 years' ago I  had played on the stage with her  sister Emmeline, she remarked, "Poov  Emmeline!" Well, yes, but she came  back to Zion, repented and died there  Salt Lake City.  Strange to say, of all the ladies,  I mean sisters, I spoke with, none  were averse to polygamy as formerly practiced, but rather in its  favor. As'Aunt'Lina remarked, "tho  Gentiles" could not understand it.  but it tvas no sensual passion, but a  spiritual onc, and the wives deified  their husbands as ot old. The men refer to it.now as a dead issue, inasmuch as Pvesident Woodruff in 1S90  received a special revelation fvom  tbe Lord to discontinue plural marriages, which is final.  Salt Lake City is still the "state  of Zion" and from tlience all tho "law  and gospel" is forwarded, iind tliere  the tithe is duly sent by' the faithful  and dispensed on church and otlnv  matters. Their belief is the same as  the Baptists, if we exclude John Smith  and tho "Book of Mormon." Thoy he  lieve in immersion and also "laying  on of hands-' and our Bible and Testament is as sacred to them as it is  to us. In thc history of their church  you���������\vlir-flhdM.his-quolatlon:���������-���������The-  Latter Day Saints ave a happy, pvos-  pevous, God-fearing, virtuous people.  Thrift, cleanliness, good order, peace  and sobriety are among thoir characteristics. God has blessed the land  because of them, and for their sal.3  thc earth has yielded"- abundance.'  It must not be forgotten that hundreds of missionaries go forth yearly  and oven Ontario has its converts,  fov in .the settlement of Cardston  there are those who have married  into the order and are loudest in'its  praise*.  Now, a word as to its religious observances.     Thoy   iivc   quiet,   earnest  and rigid enough to gladden the heart  of tbo    old timo   Puritan,    but    they  avo intensely practical.    In the interval   ot  prayer   a     bishop    was   kind  enough to announce my pcrfovmances  on  Monday,  July  21th,  which   is the  anniversary of the Saints'  arrival  at  Sal   Lake,    and   then "Brother Card"  produced a dish of strawberries grown  in  his  own   garden,   fvom   plants  of  Utah   growth,   on   which   ho   read   a  homily on gardening, exhorting those  present to "go and do likewise." Then  the brethren measured them, extolled  their quality, and one brother quaintly remarked:   "I'd  like  a  gallon    of  them for my supper."    Tlieir psalmody is conducted by a trained choir,  whicli is not marred by the guttural  utterances   of  untuned   congregation.  There is no paid minister, but any of  the   bishops "will   fill   the  bill.     Oft-  repeated   kneeling   is   not   practiced,  and strangest of all, there is no collection,   and   I   may  add   as   a finale  that the prayer extemporized and delivered   by  the  leading  merchant  of  the   village,  was   so  fervent,   earnest  and truthfully delivered that it would  reach  the  heart  of even  an   atheist.  A new temple is under way which  will cost $50,000, thc present building  he supply I being   utterly   inadequate.     Cardston  tampered ', has two hotels, one operated by    the  ' bishop and the pVr.es by a disciple of  tho faithful.    The    sole bono of contention  amongst   them   is   the   Question  of  a  liquor  license,    which    is  obnoxious to their faith.    They have  excellent   farms,    good    cattle,    fine  horses,   wonderful    perseverence   and  thrft,  and   will   ere long make  their  adopted  homo one    of  the  brightest  spots  in  Alberta,   the   favored.  ,  Fort Macleod, Alb., July 30.

Grand Forks, B.C., and the district  surrounding it, i.s being largely advertised in the coast papers.  XV. B. Pool left yesterday morning  for the Nettie L to push the work of  getting out ore for shipment.  The Cascade Record dryly remarks  that it is a poor town these days that  cannot stir up some kind of a smelter  story.  Nurse Lucas left'on Monday morning  for Calgary, where she will visit  friends for a few days, prior to leaving  for her home in England.  J. M.  Kellie,  Win. Lawrence,  J. B.

The Herald is in receipt of a copy  of the programme and prize list of the  Okanagan and Spallumacheen agricultural society's fall show tn be held  in the city- of Vernon on September  26th, 27th and 2Sth.  Fred Cook, Ottawa correspondent of  the Toronto Mail-Empire- and the  Victoria Colonist, spent Monday in  the city.

The Nelson Tribune is authority forthe statement that the present government will be able to meet the  house with a good working innjority  and that Messrs.

A Boston girl learning the bicycle  pxplains that it hit the post because of  the " influence of concentrated attention rendering the movements incoordinate so that the rider becomes the  victim of perverted reflexes." The  Revelstoke girl simply says "darn it"  and gets on ..gain.  A Npw Denver despatch to the Nelson Tribune states that the Mine  Owner>' Association in the Slocan  have decided to re-open their mines  on or before October 1st, paying the  standaid scale S3.;V1 per eight hour  shift; but in no case are "union" men  to be employed. This will very soon  end the trouble, for the owners .will  shortly find that all "miners" are  union men. Cninnizcd capital will  and must recognize unionized labor.  A charming story by the author of  ''David Jlarum'' hns reached ns* this  week. An -.inuitml subject for romance, the IiiM-n. u Hank Teller, fulls  in love with tin- (laughter of one of the  directors, and the plot deals with the  diSicuIties and complications whicli  ensue in an interesting and admirable  manner. The story is published by  The Poole Printing Company, Limited.  Toronto and is for sale by all newsdealers, at the low price of 15 cents, or  will send postpaid by the publishers  on receipt of price.  A petition is being circulated protesting to the city council against the  proposal of the public works committee to impose the frontage tax of  two-thirds of the cost of building the  sidewalk to the property owners on  the side of the street on which the  sidewalk is to be biiilt and the one-  third tax on the property owners on  the opposite side of the street. Already the petition has been signed by  over two-thirds of the property owners on the street affected, and before  it is handed to the city fathers it will  likely have the signatures of all the  property ownej-s so affected.  Frontage Tax.  To the Editor of the Herald.  Frontage tax is all riuht���������in its place  ���������but Revelstoke's connecting or inn in  sidewalk is not its place.  I, with most of the ratepayers along  the route of the proposed trunk sidewalk, signed a petition protesting  ngiiinst the pulilic works committee  imposing all tho tax upon the ratepayers along this route, and hopo they  will abandon such an idea at once, anil  gnl lo work and build it from the funds  burrowed by the whole people for I hut  pin-pose. There's been enough child's  play-  .ludgitig by the present, progress the  town is n ink ing the trunk side will k is  the only one liki'ly to lie built in the  next live years, and why should I have  lo pay for it any more "than anybody  else, since as a resident I will use it as  Utile or less than the average citizen ?  lt the ratepayers on any other street  want a sidewalk, they would only have  to pay for a residential sidewalk, while  I have to contribute towards a liusi-  ni'ss sidewalk whether I need one or  not. I hough I only have a small residence on the proposed route, which  the sidewalk will not enhance in value  one red bean.  The business mnn who is probably  able to pay his share, only has to put  up the same frontage tax as I have,  though his property is worth ten or  even twenty times as much as mine.  If we had wanted sidewalks upon  the conditions that the public works  committee are now offering to us, we  could have had theni five years ago.  Why did we wait, until incorporation  tool* place? Anybody can have sidewalks if they pny for them themselves.  I again contend that it is nn unjust  taxation, in this particular instance,  which takes money fiom a few taxpayers who happen to own. (or at least  are trying to pay for) property on the  proposed trunk sidewalk to benelit the  whole community.  If the whole community want a sidewalk from one end of the town to the  other let the whole community pay for  it.  It happens that the townsite man,  whom the public works committee  think they are scalping, is nnt the  sulfeier. as he only owns twenty-eight  lots on the whole route. It i.-. in this  case, us poor struggling workingmen  who have hard enough time at any  stage of the game, under existing circumstances, tn eke out a living and  ntake both ends meet, thnt will have  to bear the burden.���������as usual.  Aid. Graham says let it be put to a  vote of the whole people. Oh yes!  How nice, anilhow gladly they would  vote in favor of us paying for all the  sidewalk, while tbey will use it just as  much ns we will. Tf Alderman Graham  wants ;i sidewalk on his street, let, him  pny for it.���������that's all right, for nobody  but Mr. Graham has to use it. When  I want, one I'll do likewise.1  If t.he public works committee have  their "little red wagon" out against  the " wliite-shirted " townsite owners,  let them co after them after the main  sidewalk is built, bnt in tho meantime  for heaven's sake let up upon further  unjustly taxing- the already overburdened Working Man.  BRIDGEMEN HURLED IN THE AIR  Another Narrow Escape for   Alex. McGregor.���������Edward Soucie Hurt Too.  On, Saturday morning, as the special  with the Canadian press association  was coming through the Kickinghorse  canyon, the engine struck the guy  ropo of the derrick in use by McGregor's bridge gang, who wore engaged in  repairing a bridge, at Glenogle. The  result was that the derrick swung  round, and Alex. McGregor, the biidge  foreman, and Edward Soucie who were  on it at the time, were thrown down.  McGregor had an arm broken and his  he.id badly cut, aiul Soucie had an arm  and a rib broken.

The development of zinc bearing  mines presents a profitable field for  investment in the mountain states,'  and one whicli, until recently, has  been generally overlooked, says the  Minning Reporter. This is accounted  for by the fact that a penalty has been  exacted for treatment of zinc bearing  ores by the silver-lead smelters, usually  50 cents for each unit of that metal in  excess of 12 po>' cent, so that zinc ores  have been avoided. Nearly all zinc  ores in the mountain states occur in  connection with lead, iron and copper,  and usually with silver and gold, the  other values being greater than the  values in zinc.  No process has yet been devised  which can successfully save the other  (.values, at the same time the  recovery of the zinc ��������� is effected,  in a state pure enough to be used in  making spelter. To take ore sufficiently pure for making spelter it  must be. capable of being concentrated  to a value of 05 per cent.  There are. however, many other  uses for ores besides making spelter,  and the success of Dr. F. L. Bartlett  of the American Zinc Lead works at  Canyon City in- saving zinc in the  form of pigment at the same time the  gold and silver values nre recovered  opens a new field of industry. Tbe  demands for the various forms of zinc  have greatly decreased in the recent  past. Tiie increased shipments of  zinc hearing ores from the Leadville  district has called attention to the  possibilities of this field nf enterprise.  It is estimated that the metallic zinc  contents of ores in Colorado are far in  excess of any other mineral except  iron.  The Jnplin, Mo., ore districts nre  producing zinc and lead at the rate of  a million pounds a month and it is  said that not a single mine has recorded a failure in the district. Ores are  there being treated carrying as low as  five per cent zinc at a satisfactory  profit.  The further development of the zinc  industry in the west is not without  difficulties, but these will be overcome  and the effort expended in so doing  will receive handsome-reward.
