 V"��.  p  ft  tf  p-  Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can  be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  at  '���iSit.  ^      .  Wta*��  Taj?  FIFTH  YEAR-NO. i).  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY, JANUARY  -j  -  /  7(vS  A   "WARNING   TO   INVESTORS.  &  �������_  Minority Stockholders Receive  Scant  Justice  in Companies Incorporated in Washington.  Tlio sale  oi"  tlio   War   liable company  should bo an object lesson to investors in  the shares oi' mining1 companies organized  tinder the laws of the state of Washington.    The War Eagle mine is situate near  liossland, in   this province, but tho company operating'  it  was organized   under  tlie laws ol the state of Washington, and  had its head office at Spokane.   The laws  of Washington allow a majority interest  in tin incorporated company to dispose of  tho company its a whole.    In other words:  The owners of a ma jorifcy of the shares in  a company, even if th��' majority is  but  one share, can sell all  the shares  of the  company, and pass title. vT-ho War-Eagle  company's  capital  was $500,000,  divided  into shares of tho par value of $1.    The  majority of the shares (2(S7,1 -J;".) were held  by an interest who voted to sell the company's 500,000 shares for $700,000, when an  offer  to purchase the  shares   for   $900,-  000 was  before  them  for  consideration.  They claimed that the' $700,000 offer was  all cash, while the $000,000 oiler was only  $200,000 cash and the balance in 10 days.  The  minority   interest   at   the   meeting  (I73,N'".5 shares) maintained that the $900,-  000 offer was the better one.   While only  $200,000 of it was in cash, no stock was to  be delivered until the balance of the offer.  $700,000, was in bank, and if not so placed  within-10 days, then, the $200,000 was to  be forfeited, an amount inore th_in double  the  probable .output of the   mine for-10  days.   The action of tho majority interest  can only have one  construction, that is,  tho property rights of the minority interest were sacrificed.    It  is  generally contended that eight out of ten men, no matter how scrupulously honest .they may be  in  ordinary   business   undertakings,  are  unscrupulous  in   their  mining  ventures,  and the sale of the AVar   Kagle company  for $700,000 when it could  have been sold  for $000,000 goes to prove that contention.  Investors should  steer clear of all mining  companies  organized  under the state of  Washington.          ���-Although tho conveyance of the War  Ivigie mine has been made to tho Gooder-  hain-Blackstook syndicate, and the money  is said to have been paid over, it may be  that the last has not been heard of the  matter.    There-is a provision.in the companies  act regulating the disposition of  their assets by companies, none of which  conditions nave been complied with.iu respect to the War Eagle deal.    It is a debatable question whether compliance with  the provisions of  this act is  obligatory  upon American  companies  registered in  this province.   The circumstance that the  Gooderham syndicate did not consider it  so, gives color to the statement commonly  '��� heard, .that American companies incOrpo-  , rated in Washington cannot be bound by  regulations   imposed   by   the   companies  act of  this -province.    In   the  companies  act amending act of 1893,  the   following  s'ectiou  was added to the companies act:  '���Notwithstanding -anything appearing  to the contrary in any statute iu force iu  this province, any corporation registered  or   incorporated   under  the  "Companies  Act," or the "Companies Act, 1S90," may  * dispose of the whole or any portion of its  assets by resolution duly passed to such  effect at a general or special meeting of  the  stockholders   representing   at   least  two-thirds in.value of the paid up capital  stock of the corporation, which meeting  shall be held in the city, town, or district  where the corporation has its chief place  of   business in  the  province:   Provided,  always, that at least one month's uotice  of such meeting, signed by the secretary,  or, in the event of his death or absence,  by the acting secretary, or if there be no  acting secretary, then by one of the trustees, shall be published' in at least four  issues of the British  Columbia Gazette,  and of some newspaper in the city, town,  or district aforesaid:    Provided, always,  that nothing herein  contained  shall   be  construed  or allowed    to  prejudice  any  claim against the corporation.''  If this act applied to the War Eagle  company, incorporated in Washington,  and the stockholders who voted against  the sale held together, they would have  had their remedy in their own hands, as  the Finch and Clark combination did not  control the necessary two-thirds of the  stock. It would have been possible for  them to have made an application in the  British Columbia courts to have the sale  set aside and a receiver appointed to administer the property. If such an application had been made it is difficult to see  how the court could have refused it. The  sale conformed with the provisions of the  companies act in no respect, and the.Finch  and Clark combination sold their co-shareholders out for $200,000 less than the  amount offered by the representative of  the London Ac British Columbia ({old  Fields company. It is now said that the  (Jorbins, Huberts, and Ilerrick, have sold  their stock. This will no doubt give the  Gooderham syndicate the necessary two-  thirds.  200-foot level.    A very good o/     '%  been done'with the diamonu  fair grade has been found on tht  the  main   tunnel, and   another ,.o.  grade has been found on tho north.  SHORT   BITS   OF   NEWS   PROM   KASLO. '   | HOW SENATOR MAHONE PLAYED POKER.  ������ir  HAS   PAID   $120;000   IN   DIVIDENDS.  But the Owners Keep It Dark and Don't Wish  Anyone to Knowr It.  If some of the men carrying on mining  operations in Trail Creek Jind.hold of a  few of the Slocan properties for six months  the Slocan would soon be known in every  corner of the earth.   The men operating  in the Slocan are good  miners, but' tliey  are afraid that someone will catch on to  tlie  circumstance that they are making  money very fast.    They give.ont as little  information concerning their property as  possible, and  kick if the newspapers attempt to publish the value of their shipments as  entered  in  the customs.    This  may be all right from their point of view,  but it does not give the district a  fair  chance for further development.    If the  earnings of tlie Slocan  mines were published, there would be a greater incentive  to capital  to develop many of the prospects which at  present are  barely kept  alive.   The reticence of these men is therefore a bad  thing  for  tJie country.    The  force of this will  bo apparent when it is  known that, one Slocan property, of whicli  .little  is ever iieard, has  paid $72,000 in  dividends during the past four months,  and the total amount of dividends paid  since    operations    were   commenced,   is  $120,000.    If this  property was in  Rossland,   its   name  would  be in  everyone's  mouth, but it is in the Slocan, and outside of those immediately interested, there  are few people who have nuy knowledge  of it or'its earnings.  Bonded the Nonpareil Group.  W. N. Rolfe secured a bond on the Nonpareil'group of claims on Tuesday. The  bond calls for the payment of a substantial  Jigure, divided into four payments, scattered over twelvemonths. The Nonpareil  group is located iu (heSlocan opposite the  Lucky.Jim group, fhe cabin on the property being about 30 minutes' walk from  the Lucky Jim siding on the Kaslo & Slocan railway. The development upon the  group consists of over 300 feet of tunnel  and some 100 feet of open .work. The  ledge is between four and five feet wide,  a great deal of which will concentrate.  Tlie paystreak varies from four to fourteen inches. Several'sample shipments  Jiave been made front the property i'or the  purpose of ascertaining the value of the  ore. These ran from 200 to 225 ounces in  silver. The owners of the group were W.  C. McLean, J. G. McLean, and W. A.  Flager. .   - .,.'���-  The Tramway Completed. .  The Noble Five company's tramway,  connecting the mines and the concentrator at Cody, has been completed and successfully tested. The tramway was built j  by the Colorado Iron Works, of Denver,  ���aud.is of entirely novel design. It is the  invention of Mr. Finlaysou of that- company, and is the first of the pattern to be  built anywhere. It is automatic in operation, the loaded bucket starting the  empty one on its journey, Tlie .buckets  will carry from 300 to 700 pounds each of  ore. The tramway will, when worked up  to its capacity, bring down daily about  ���iSO tons of ore, and carry up about half  that quantity of merchandise.  The Again a Shipper  Tiie Josie will begin to ship ore this  week. Several hundred tons have been  knocked down from the stope in the big  J.<ve chute in the east end. It is thought  that tlie Josie company can easily ship u  carload a flay.    A good deal of work has  Developing- the Sunset.  The Sunset Gold and Silver Miningcom-  pany, wliich recently -secured the Sunset  mineral claim in the Whitewater basin,-  has a force of ten men opening up the  property. A shaft has been smile 15 feet,  and the ledge has gradually widened from  three to six feet. There is a rich streak  of galena which varies from 8 to 1-1 inches.  In sinking the present shaft over a carload  of shipping ore lias been taken out. A  second carload will be sliipped during the  first week in February.  Goodenough's Promised Dividend,  it is said that the Goodenough 'Mining  company, owning the Goodenough mine  in the Sloean, will declare a $50,000 dividend within a month or six weeks. The  company now has $20,000 in the treasury,  and enough ore in transit to warrant the  payment of such a dividend.  Where Dick Shea Is King.  Lake  I).   Wolford and A. Coolidgo of  Colfax, who are largely interested  in  the  Rambler-Cariboo Mining Company, have  been visiting the property, which has  been showing some very valuable ore  bodies. ^_   Another Rossland Claim Sold.  The Sultana claim, located on Lookout  mountain, adjoining the Wisconsin, has  been sold. Ten thousand dollars was the  price paid, $3000 down, the remainder in  ���"!() days. General Warren and a Manitoba  syndicate are the buyers.  . ..Fisher Maiden Shipping.  In the Fisher Maiden mine at Silverton  there is a force of 17 men at work driving  a tunnel and stoping out ore. There are  over 200 tons of ore on the dump, and 700  sacks are now ready to ship. This ore assays $00 to the ton.  Second Payment Made on Mountain Goat.  The Mountain Goat mineral claim, under  bond to W. li. Potter, i.s said to be turning out satisfactorily. The second payment on the bond, which fell due some  days since, was promptly met.  Tlie newly elected members of the city  ���.ouncil held their first meeting on Monday last in accordance with  the statute.  The declarations of tho  aldermen  elect  were read by  the  clerk, and  they  were  ready for business.    In  the unavoidable  absence of mayor elect Green, alderman  Moore was elected temporary chairman,  and the councilman took a recess until K  o'clock in the evening.    When tho council  reassembled, the mayor's declaration' was  read, and he took the chair.    A communication was  read from   W. B. Strathern,  calling attention to the open saloons on  election day, wliich, he said, was in violation of law, and asking whose duty it was  to see that the Sabbath was properly observed in accordance with law. The mayor,  named the standing committees with the  following chairmen:    Finance, alderman  Garland'; public works, alderman Moore;  'sanitation and water,alderman Buchanan;  lire   and   light,' alderman    Goodenough.  Alderman Buchanan asked some questions  with reference to the waterworks system,  and the show license given the proprietor  of the Theatre Comique.   He then asked  for a private session of the council, which,  after some conversation, it was arranged  to call on Saturday evening,    it was elicited during the talk,  that the alderman  desired "to present a charge for gross misconduct against one of the city's officials,  the charge will probably be laid on  Saturday   evening,   and    discussed    behind  closed doors.  Miss Alice Hamilton, one of the variety  actresses of tho Theatre Comique, slipped  as she was coming out of the theatre  building on Tuesday morning and, in falling, broke her leg.  The new rotary snow plow for tho Kaslo  & Slocan railway, has received some  changes in the machine shops at Spokane,  and has been forwarded from there for  use on the road. It will probably arrive  in the course of a few clays, and be a valuable acquisition, although there has been  no serious detentions thus far in the road's  traffic.  The shares of the Ibex Mining and Development company are selling very  rapidly in the east, and orders are coming  in every day. Fred Steele, the treasurer  of the company, who only returned on  Monday from Winnipeg, will leave in the  course of a few days for Toronto and  Montreal, where he will establish agencies  for the sale of the company's stock. The  showing, at. the mine is said to be excellent.  .���  D. Bauman, a mining man from Denver,  Colorado, was in Ivaslo the other day  day looking after zinc properties. His  object ought'to commend itself to the  owners, of several properties, where this  class of mineral has been considered rather  detrimental than otherwise.  The new skating rink was opened for  the public use on Tuesday evening last.  Both curlers and skaters took advantage  of the occasion to indulge in their favorite  pastime. But the ice was not sufficiently  smooth to permit of the best results. The  ice will be-again flooded and it will only  need a few days cold weather to make the  rink a favorite resort, as well a.s permitting of the most health bringing- exercise.  The water works system, aftermost exasperating delays, approaches completion.  The big cut on A avenue has been pushed  through, and the section of pipe between  Fifth and Sixth street may now be laid.  The work of putting together the wood  stave pipe is also progressing rapidly, and  the whole of it will be in place on Monday  or Tuesday. The floor and sides of the  reservoir have received a coat of asphalt,  and it is now ready for the water. If  there be no untoward accident, the water  should be turned on and the system tested  by the 1st of February.  The Theatre Comique was again represented in the police court on Thursday  afternoon. The occasion was a row which  occurred on Wednesday night between  Robert Felix, "peanut Bob," a "beer  slinger," and one I). J. McDonald, during  which McDonald had his eye blackened.  McDonald was fined $10, and the waiter  $15, with the addition of an admonition  from the police magistrate that young  men in his business must be prepared to  take considerable abuse from those to  whom they supplied intoxicants until  they became inebriated, for if brought  before him for assault tinder such circumstances, they would have cause to regret.  He;would himself attend to tliat end.  li. . Hirschel Cohen is again in Kaslo,  and is said to be negotiating for further  purchases of Slocan property. He went  into the hills by rail on Thursday morning.  Ney York Journal: They tell a story  about Mahone, which illustrates tho delicacy of that gentleman, a.s well as' the  cool and steady fashion in which he used  to pick up his pokerhand. The general  is dead now, and this is of three-years ago.  General Mahone played very often, and  liked tlie game. Once he was in a four-  handed party at Chamberlin's, which included several senators; nobody was winning or losing very much. The limit was  not a high one. >  A deal was beginning where general  Mahone sat at the dealer's left hand, and  had what is popularly called "the age."  The general had anted and the deal was  about to begin, when one of the waiters  called him from the room to speak with  gentleman.  ."Deal me a hand," said general Mahone,'  as he stepped out of the door. "I'll be  back in time to play if." As he closed the  door behind him. the senator who was  handling the deck, remarked :  "Let's put up a joke on Mahone. I'll  deal him three queens in the go-off, and  fix up C , next to him, with a straight  flush, and then let. Mahone get another  queen in the draw. I'd like to see how  long and how hard the general would bet  four queens. Of course, we give the money  back."'  The others deemed this a very excellent  jest, and the dealer ran over the deck until he had gotten three queens, which he  threw down with two other cards a.s Ma-  hone's hand. Then he fixed up the statesman next to him with a four diamond  flush. The top of the deck was next-arranged so as to give Mahone a not her queen  to.his three, and fill C.'s diamond flush to  make it a straight (lush.  Everybody had picked up his hand when  the general got back, and as herdrew up  to the table and reached for his cards, the  dealer remarked: "Hurry up general,  we're waiting for you." general Mahone  looked at his hand, discarded one card  and said:    "Give me a card."

To their amazement and without a moment's hesitation, without a word of comment or any gesture which would indicate either surprise or disgust, Mahone  threw his hand in the discard, and as nobody  bet against C , he,took  in  the  little pot with opposition.  General Mahone calmly reached for the  deck and proceeded to shuffle the cards  for the next deal. At last the senator  who had dealt the cards broke into a  laugh.

There i.s a well authenticated report current that, the Black Diamond and Little  Donald mineral claims at Ainsworth,  lately owned by John F. Stevens of the  Great Northern Railway, and bonded to  T. M. Gibson of Kaslo, have been by (he  latter transferrer! to an eastern syndicate  represented by Fred Steele, a small interest being retained by Mv. Gibson. The  price paid i.s stiid to have been good sized,  but particulars are not given. Work will  probably begin at once with a considerable force, and shipments made at tin  early date.  The Manitoba Election Cases.  It would appear from the proceedings  in the recent election trials that Manitoba's population consists chiefly of a  majority of fools who were cheated by a  minority of rogues.  V-  eral back his'ante," remarked the late  dealer. Then they all'laughed, while Ma-  hoiie looked up iu pretended surprise.  "Why didn't you bet those four queens,  general?" asked one of the senatorial  players. "Did you think they were a joke,  or that somebody was trying to rob you?"  "No, sir," smoothly replied Mahone, "I  have the utmost confidence in the honesty  of every gentleman present; I haveu'tthe  remotest idea that any of you would rob  me, and am confident that no one would  jest about so serious a thing as poker.  .But I make it an inflexible rule, sir, never  to bet a high hand where I have been absent through the deal. To be out in the  hall during the deal, and then return and  get a fourth one oil the draw, is to me excessively alarming. So, of course, I throw  my hand in the discard. I always want  to be present when lam dealt four of a  kind."  "Well, general," said the senator who  had been dealing, "it Was a joke, after  all, and I must compliment you ou the  very prompt and thoroughbred manner  in which, without discussion, you laid  down those four queens.'- it showed, sir,  that you were a Southern gentleman, and  was complimentary alike to yourself and  to us."  Then they all. laughed, and, ringing for  a waiter, they ordered a bottle of wine,  and arranged a frugal rake-olf to pay  for it. ���   _  *_ '  .  A Pen Picture of Cleveland.  Cleveland's refusal to interfere in Cuban  affairs is denounced by the Kansas City  Times in language of western vigor and  pieturesqueness. "His corpulency," says  The Times, "sits smiling iu selfish .'unconcern over the spectacle of daily carnage,  cruelty, and rapacity going on almost  within sight of our southern seaboard. It  (ills the fatty convolutions of his brain  with pride and thrills with elephantine  joy (lie osseous heart that pumps the  fishy blood through his apoplectic corpo-  rosity, to think that in ignoring the sufferings of the people of Cuba he is showing his contempt for the sentiments of the  I'nited States."

J. M-. Kellie, who represents the north  riding of West Kootenay in the legislature  is making a tour of Trail Creek district  ���prior  to  the  opening of   the  provincial  parliament.-' While in Trail Creek he discussed the celebrated .Paris Bell ���decision'  of chief justice Davie.   From li is remarks  upon the same it is evident that Kellie^ in  common with all mining  men, has a poor  opinion of the judgment.    This is whathe  said upon'the subject:    "In the event of  tlie decision of chief justice Davie being  sustained I believe the interests of a large  number of people in the vicinity of Rossland and elsewhere, whohave acted in good  faith, call for relief.    In the event suggested, I  propose to introduce a bill in the  legislature   that  will  cure the  technical  defect to these titles, and  prevent what  appears to be an injustice to man}'' people  who have shown good faith in. every substantial respect..' I think  it is  a   matter  winch   deserves   legislative   relief.    The  bill, if introduced aud carried, will be an  amendment to the-mineral act, and  will  simply be declaratory of what the law, in  the respect under discussion, was'intended to be."    _       '      And He Never Came Back.  Tom Dolan, treasurer of Rossland's Miners' Union No. &S,- W. F. M., .disappeared  soon after January 1st. and about $000 of  the union's funds entrusted to his care  went with him. He was not suspected tit  the first meeting held early in the month,  but a day or two later when inquiries  were made, it was learned that he had  left town, not making his plans known,  and that the treasury was empty. His  bondsmen, A. Klockman, l-.thvard Bowes,  and II. S. Mc-Conncll made the deficit good  on Monday.            Wants a Dominion Charter.  Application will be made at the next  session of the federal parliament to incorporate the British Pacific Kail way company, for the purpose'of building a lino  from Victoria to'Winnipeg via Butte Inlet, Cariboo, Fdnionton, and Prince Albert, with a branch line to a port on Hudson's Bay. and branches down the valleys  of the Canoe, Columbia and Kootenay  rivers to the 10th paralleloflatitiidc, with  power to purchase, lease, amalgamate or  make ru lining arrangements With existing  lines or lines of proposed railways.  Will Ship Fvo Cars Each Month.  Lane Keith, one of the lessees of the Slocan Boy, was in Ivaslo on Monday last.  He reports that they have 2'A men at work  on the property, and have sliipped during  the season 15 carloads of high grade ore.  and will ship about five cai loads each  month.  The Telegram's Political Pars.  For the sake of Canada's honor, it is to  be hoped that the Liberal party i.s not  about to become identified with any  movement for reciprocity which involves  the recognition of Mr. Kdward Farrcr as  the Washington agent of a Canadian  government.  (''.e profits made bv the original stockriders in the Wat K-igle are easily computed. By thi" "-ale they receiveTcturas~__-  on a ba^is of $750,000. The mine lias paid  $187,000 in dividends, or a total of $8'_>7,-  500. J3ut the original stock represented,  in addition to the War. Eagle mine, the  Iron Mask, the Virginia, and the Poor-  man. The stock of the Iron Mask is selling .around  50 cents, or $250,000 for the '  value of $1,327,500. It cost the original  owners, all told, about $50,000, or 10 cents  'per share.' In other words, original stockholders who have retained their interests  to date have received more than $20 for  each dollar invested.  A Rich'Strike on the Whitewater.  The Whitewater mine increases in value  at almost every- foot of development work  which is done upon it. Manager Eaton  reports that the tunnel next to the lowest  is now. in 175 feet, and he has struck an  ore body which he thinks is the same as  that which shows in the winze above, and  which he has been following for some  time. Assays-of ordinary samples from  this body assayed J.)l ounces silver to the  ton, which was surprising -even-to the  manager himself.  Eight Thousand Dollar Silver Ore.  The Goodenough mine is still -producing  high class ore, and well . maintaining its  promise. Some samples taken out in (he  ordinary course, of. stoping. were sent to  Hill it Co., the assayers at Sandon, and  from one sample the remarkable assay re- ���  turn was made of VA, 1-12 ounces in silver  per ton. This is perhaps- the highest assay ever made in the district. There are  two carloads ol' ore tit the Kaslo sampling  works, from which large returns are expected. _  Knows What He Is Talking About.  George W. Hughes was in Ivaslo the  other day. He is enthusiastic over the  outlook in the Slocan country. He says  that the improvementeverywhere is most  marked. It i.s not shown iu one property,  nor in one locality, but everywhere  throughout the Slocan district, where  values are being developed by leaps and  bounds. The Payne group, which... is already a heavy shipper, will send out in  the early future fully 50 tons per day.  Killed in a Snow Slide.  Word was received here on Wednesday  last that John G. Gillis, foreman at the  Ibex mine, had been buried in a snow  slide. Kfforts were being made to rescue  him, but it was scarcely possible to hope  that he would be taken out alive. Assistance was sent from the Whitewater, but  without avail. Latest accounts are to the  elfect that (he body had not been recovered from the slide.  Another Good Thing on Ton-milo.  The Kdinonton group on Ten-mile creek,  Slocan lake, under bond to A. (.'. Ferguson  of Vancouver, i.s said to be looking well as  the result of development work. The  vein is stronger, and some high uvade ore  is being taken out. George D. Turner is  in charge of the work.  OK  ��� ��� wilit _? L    r    ��� .     �����      Jin v a     .7v    )r       .

TUP,  TRIBUNE:   NELSON,   B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY M,   1807.  VV 'o .  is not si journal in the province.-'saye pus-  sibly the. Colonist, which would do such  "strong.lying for one dollar per line as the  Vancouver World does. This newspaper  is underpaid rather than overpaid. When  a newspaper, in defence of government  blunders, goes so far as to charge clerical  errors with being responsible for the  granting of millions of acres of land to  charter speculators, it surely earns a  dollar a lino now.and then for government  advertisements.  Bi'-Koi..-'- the shareholders of the War  Eagle mine made their kick against the  sale of the property to the Gooclerham-  Blackstock syndicate, the prospective  purchasers intimated that they would  build their smelter at liossland and not  at Northport. The chief kickers against  this sale are those who have interests in  the N. Ac F. S. and S. F. & NT. railways and  the Northport townsite. These people  are likely to cause trouble, and a desire to  secure the property upon the terms agreed  may have prompted the Toronto people  to shift their ground. It does not matter  to the people of Kootenay what position  the owners of the War Eagle take with  respect to the erection of their smelter.  It .'may not suit the owners of the North-  uort townsite, nor the management of the  American railways to have Trail Creek  ores treated in'-British Columbia, but the  fact remains that such ores could be treated advantageously in tlie vicinity of  Rossland and north of the international  boundary. When this is done the Canadian towns will secure advantages which  1). C. Corbin is at present trying to secure  for his own townsite in the United States.  It does not matter who owns the mines,  the interests of the district demand that  the ores be treated in the district, and  the federal government should so frame  its tarilT as to secure this end.  II. Ci.iOMKNT.s, treasurer of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital, has received a  statement of account from the committee  in charge of the Charity ball recently  given in aid of the hospital. The statement shows the receipts to have been  $112, and the expenditures $110.29. The  balance, $1.71, was turned over to the  hospital society. A little more assistance  of this nature and the Jvootenay Lake  General Hospital Society will soon be upon  velvet.           It would be well for the provincial legislature at its approaching session to give  some attention to the truck system,  and if there i.s no law against such a system, to frame one and put it into force  at once. In every country where this  system has obtained, it has been a source  of evil. So great were the evils resulting  from this system in Great Britain, that  several years ago an  act of parliament  ���liring employers  to pay  J, and orders at stores not  jployer were made as illegal  Pixls upon company or em-  This act also' prohibited  Si,  direct   or  indirect, as to  ,'es of employees should  be  jisinissals for dealing at cer-  jor not dealing at other stores  ���illegal.    The evil has been leg-  Kst in the I'nited States, where  &ul to bo the root of much of t he  jles wliich disturbed  the coal  inolal mining industries.  J'K does not wish to see any  jfruin a foothold in Kootenay,  reason it submits that the  f.hould enquire, into the n-.ui-  l  the   relationship  between  d employees is shaping in this  I company known as the Hall  ed, furnishes a good case in  company is nominally a min-  Jlting company, but it already  In boarding house tit the mines  lintain.

It can  Contended that all this is being  le interests of the miners om-  Ihe Hall Mines company. There  Sn to believe that such a.system,  |been found to work injuriously  J.es the world  over, will  work  fin the case of the Hall Mines,  (I't'he system permits too many  ties for abuses, to be allowed to  thold in A Vest Kootenay.

The contiactors who have been sii.iung  the last 00 feet in the.Butte shtif ^-completed their work Monday, and at the. 100-  foot leveldisclosed a body, of ore carrying  a large percentage of copper, mixed with  pyrrohitite and white quartz. In a ti_w  days a contract for a 50 loot drift on the  vein will be let, and it is expected that a  fine body of ore will be opened up, as it is  thought that the shaft is sunk on the  west end of the ore chute, surface work to  the east having shown ore everywhere.  Manager King of the Columbia and  Kootenay, has contracted with the Trail  smelter to deliver ore for treatment at the  rate of $10 a ton. It will cost him $2a ton  to deliver tlie ore at the smelter, so that  the whole.'expense will be $12 a ton. He  now has about 400 tons on the dump; and  is increasing this rapidly, as he is stoping  both above and below the tunnel, and  both stopes look well.

THE HALL MARK OF THE HYPHEN.  Tlie art oL; bluffing id the art oi' securing  tlie greatest possible results on tlie  strength o,f.' the smallest tangible foundation. Kor example: It is an easy matter  to acquire a reputation among the astute  citizens along upper Broadway i'or unlimited wealth and generosity by simply buying a few ostentatious bottles of champagne and conversing in loud accents  about any gas or railroad stock that lias  taken a recent rise. Nor is it difficult for  any gentleman of smooth speech to convey to people who have never been south  of Mason and Dixon's line, the impression  that his family were the largest slaveholders known to thesouth of ante-bellum  days.  The bin IT of which 1 treat now was  worked with enormous success by the  family of old Bill Jones, wlib kept a feed  store in the Ninth ward and died, leaving  behind him an ambitious widow and  daughters and an effeminate son to struggle with the world as best they could.  Airs. Jones was always a woman of action ns well as of words, and so it happened that within a very few weeks she  had established the family in a Queen  Alary house, situated within live minutes'  walk of the railway station, whicli bears  the name of Nutniegleigh. Their possessions filled three large vans, but not all of  them combined equalled in value the bluff  that had taken form in Mrs. Jones' brain  about three weeks before they moved and  blossomed forth on the moment of their  arrival at their new home. This bluff  was nothing more 'nor less than a small  black   line,   but   it   pervaded   the   whole    Jones otiiiit from   the addresses on   the  -*/     "       furniture   vans   to   the   family    visiting  cards.  X Old  Bill  .Jones' .widow   was now Airs.  Wil. William Carter-Jones, her daughters were  _*.    . the Misses  Hebecea and .llnwena Carter-  j$F Jones,  and Tier son, formerly  known  to  '��< those who hungaround the old feed store  *8| as "Tom." had been'metamorphosed into  T. Seymour Carter-Jones.  The bluff was a hyphen; that was all.  The inhabitants of the various Queen  Anne, Queen Alary and Queen Elizabeth  cottages that lie, within five, eight and  thirteen niinutes' walk of the Nutniegleigh station came, saw and fell down before the bluff���conquered.- By nightfall  the social leaders of the place were alluding to "the" Carter-Joneses as glibly and  familiarly as if they had known them all  their lives, while any tradesman stood  ready, to give them any amount of credit.  Already the bluff was working like yeast.  As the days wore on the leading.inhabitants'pi: Nutniegleigh vied with one another, in their efforts to welcome and entertain the newcomers. T. Seymour  Carter-Jones was .put up at the Casino by  the principal real estate owner in the  place, and seconded by a man whose wife's  sister lived in New York and kept her  own carriage with two men on the box.  The young ladies were invited to .join  the Thursday Morning Literary Class,  then in the throes of Dante, and were  soon able to hold their literary end up,  even in'lhe presence of Mrs. DeM tidget,  who had been born with a culture caul,  and could pronounce "Renaissance"'and  ���"Pre-Raphaelite" as glibly as bread and  butter. It was even seriously proposed  to ask Mrs. Carter-Jones to become a member of the town school board, in spite of  the fact that her grammar and spelling  were as shaky as the newest commuter in  a malarial district.  And the hyphen had done it all.  Something else that the hyphen did for  the Carter-Joneses was to secure for them  the attention of the local correspondent's  of the Sexv York and Newark papers, and  through them that of the compilers of society columns. There is nothing that the  average society reporter holds in such  high regard���unless it be a cold, portable  bird���as a family with a hyphenated  name, and the members of the era ft seized  upon the Carter-Joneses with such avidity  that their names began to glisten even in  the most important chronicles of fashion.  | (And all this time no one suspL--.,ted that  the total assets of the Carter-Joneses, outside of the family hyphen, was the small  sum that had been saved from the closing  out of the paternal feed store, enough  perhaps to maintain them two or three  years.  The Carter-Joneses had no intention of  remaining permanently in Nutniegleigh.  They only stayed there long enough to  acquire a species" of social renown they  could never ha ve won in a moie fashionable place. At f he end of the year they  moved to one of the most fashionable of  the Oranges, choosing that place because  tlie same Newark newspapers that had  chronicled their Nutniegleigh doings enjoyed a, wide circulation there. So it  ha'ppened that when they arrived with  their hyphen in their midst, they found  that their reputation had preceded them.  "There's one thing I  like   about   this  town," said the elder Aliss Carter-Jones  the morning after their arrival, '"and that  is the number of young men driving dogcarts about the streets."  '���yes,"  responded   the  mother,  significantly, and we must up and at them!"  And they upped and atted them with  /so much tact and vigor that before they  had paid a year's rent there came a day  when Mrs. Carter-Jones had the supreme  satisfaction of seeing no less than five  New York society reporters, to say nothing of scribes from Newark and other  New Jersey towns, taking down the names  and dresses of the guests at the grand  double Carter-Jones wedding, llie fashionable event of the Orange season.  "And what' is to become or us, momma':'  inquired Air. T. Seymour Carter-Jones, as  mother and 3011 stood watching the servant a.s she swept the rice from the piazza.'  "I shall divide my. time between Rebecca. a'ndKowena, but 1 have a trick up  my sleeve for yon, my boy," replied the  mother.  About one month later the Now York  newspapers burst into screams of excitement over the fact that another member  of the Four Hundred had ''actually gone  into trade," and,sure enough, the great  name of Carter-Jones appeared on a gilt  sign over tlie '-Ladies' and Gentlemen's  Shoe-Cleaning and llenovating parlois.  Violets from Airs. O'usset-Furdelow's Long  Island Hot Houses."  And the hyphen had done it all!  , Six tons of railway steel for  sale���all lengths from two to  thirty feet. Apply to R. E.

He is in a position  to supply users of electric light with  Thomson watt meters, capable of registering the current of from five lamps up.  By the use of these meters the consumer  will pay. for what electricity lie uses and  'no more, l-'or consumers who economise  iu the matter of light there will no doubt  be a considerable saving over the "flat  rate,''as it will check waste of current  which takes place at present.

At a meeting of the,Consunier's Waterworks Company held in Nelson this week  the question of improving the company's  service was discussed, and though nothing  was definitely settled the probabilities  are that tlie company,will make tlie necessary improvements this spring.  iMartin Barrett of the Half .Mines smelter has received the prints of the <photo-  graph'in which he appears as the slayer  of five deer.
