 Has Mines that a>~e Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties thatcan be Made  Dividend  Paying Mines.  'SIXTH   FEAR-NO.  G.  ���a-  '���'���Ci'  Has  Three   Smelters, in   Successful   Operation,  and  Enough   Ore   in Sight  to ,Run  Several   More.  *-'/:%  %  0-  6\  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, JANUARY  8, L898.  Ti  rWO  DOLLAR A YKM:.  PERN   CLEANS   UP   ANOTHER   $13,178.  The   Company, Has   Earned   $28,000  all  Told,  Equal to an 8 Pei' Cent Dividend.  The Fern Gold Mining'and Milling Co.  has made another clean-up after ll days  mining at the   Fern   mine.    During this  period about 1250 tons of ore were treated  in  the company's stamp mill, producing  bullion to the value of $��-,(>31.03 and concentrates worth $1,031.12.    In addition  to  this shipments of ore were made which  returned $1.('08.03, so that the .total revenue   of   the   company   for   the   -1-1   days  amounted   to   $I3,17��.3X.       This  amount  added  to  the $15,000,  which represented  the return of the first 37 days run brings  tlie Lota I revenue of the company to something over   $28,000.    The   company's exc  punse account for this period  foots up io  $12,000.    This would make it appear that  the earnings of the company upon  the SI  days' operations amount to  $1(5,000.    As  the company is stocked for $200,000 this i.s  equal to a dividend of S per cent upon the  capital stock in less than three months.  It is worthy of note that mill returns  for this second run show that the value  of the ore treated was much lower than  the ore treated during the first run. For  the lirst 37 days' running the value of the  ore ranged in the neighborhood of $11.50  pei" ton, but in the second run in dropped  down to $0.50 per ton. Of this amount  $7.70 was in free gold and $1.55 in the concentrates.  The management of the mine reports  that the Fern i.s in excellent shape, and  that with the contemplated increase in  the plant the output of the property will  be trebled. '     Hennessey Will Go to Dawson City,  "Bill" Hennessey spent a couple of days  in town this week, renewing his acquaintance with the pioneers of the town.  Hennessey was one of the locators of the Noble  Five group of mines, and  he is at a  lo-"s - to   understand   the collapse  of the  company.    In the shape things are now in  he does  not think that the -shareholders  will   realize anything  upon   their  Noble  Five holdings.    lie is of the opinion that  the property will be acquired  by outside  people and re-stocked  with other Slocan  property.    Bill  i.s slated  to  mako  a  trip  inlo Dawson City next month in company  with William Chambers and E. M. Pound.  He has no intention  of mining, but will  act as outside broker  for several  of his  friends who have acquired  properties in  the  neighborhood of Dawson  City.     In  speaking   of -Chambers, Hennessey' says  that the "judge" has  got  much thinner,  than lie.was when he ran the Palace hotel  ar Chambers City, at the foot of Ivootenay  lake iu 1803.   Chambers and Pound have  cleared up $50,000 since  their return from  Dawson City, and would have done much  better had it not been for Pound's falling  through the ice on the way out and losing  several options that he held upon Klondyke  properties.    Chambers  and Pound  are now in Chicago organizing a big company.- ';' '���     ������-    .;  f'ejt, furniture, some glass, iron, paints-,  wire, woodenware. e.tc.,33.1, per cent.

RAILWAY   AND .: SMELTER    COMPETITION  Is What.-the. People  of Boundary Wish to bo  Permitted to Enjoy.  The Boundary Creek   Times does  not  propose  that the interests of Boundary  Creek shall be s-icrificed to the avarice  of F. Aug.  Hein/.H.    For  this  reason   the  Times objects  to  the  personal  organ  of  F. Aug. rieinzn speaking on behalf of the  people of Boundary Creek.   The people of  Boundiy   Creek   have    home-sense,   and  naturally I hey prefer the Corbin railway,  which will  not eost them anything, and  which at the *--ame time will give  then-  railway facilities and smelter competition  for   the   treatment   of   their   ores.    The  Times says that nine-tenths of the people  of*Boundary Creek favor the Corbin railway.   They see very clearly that the object of F. Aug. Heinze is to secure an absolute railway and smelting monopolycin  Boundary Creek.   They are  not willing  therefore that the provincial government  shall bonus F. Aug. Heinze to the extent  of $'1000 pei* mile for a railway which will  carry ores  to no  place save the Heinze  smelter at Trail.    In short they are  very  much against beiiiK delivered over to the*  tender mercies of F.   Aug.  Heinze   upon  any    term--.     The   people   of   Boundary  ask that they be not denied the ad vantage  of competitive smelter and freight rates.  They  believe that such advantages can  be more readily secured by the construction of Corbin's railway.   When Mr. Corbin   goes  to the   Dominion  house for a  charter to extend  his  railway into  the  Boundary Creek country the federal parliament can make it a condition to securing the charter, that Corbin enters into  an   agreement   to   deliver   ores   to   any  smelter on the Columbia river on the British Columbia side of the line at as low a  rate(as ores will be delivered at smelters  on the Columbia river on the American  side.    This will give the ore producers of  Boundary Creek a larger market for their  ores and competition   between smelters.  THE   LANARK   CLOSED   DOWN.  the  the  re-  re,;  op'  A Couple of Thieves leathered In.  Chief of police McKinnon rounded up a  couple of men Monday night who are  credited with having committed a number  of burglaries. On Monday the warehouse  of the Hudson's Bay Company was entered and seven sides of bacon, twelve  caddies of tobacco aud two cases of whiskey were stolen. At nine o'clock on the  same eveuiug chief McKinnon arrested  Charles ITiggins and Edward Evans upon  the charge of burglary. These men occupy a cabin about 125 feet from the Hud-  sou's Bay Company's warehouse, and hi  it most of the stolen goods were recovered.  On Wednesday morning the men were arraigned before magistrate Crease, who  committed them for trial. In addition to  the goods taken from the Hudson's Bay  Company the police found a couple of  tubs of butter in the prisoners' cabin,  with M. DesBrisay's mark upon them,  which are also believed to have been  stolen., On Monday, John A. Turner, Ac  Co. missed several cases of coal oil from  their warehouse, and the police recovered  several cans of. oil which had been disposed of by the prisoners. The police  claim to have evidence that the oil was  taken from Turner Ac Co.'s warehouse  Monday afternoon.  C. P. R. Stock May Reach Par.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company's next dividend is now a question  before Montreal's Wall street, and while  all believe that the half yearly dividend  to be declared in February, will reach 2  per cent, some bets are offered that it will  be 2i. The statement i.s made that the  company has over $2,000,000 beyond the  fixed charges, and that by the end of December it will have readied $2,125,000.  The sum of $1,025,000 will pay 2h per cent  on a capital of $05,000,000, so the Canadian  Pacific railway magnates might give the  shareholders that amount, and thus make  a yearly dividend of J per cent on the  common stock of the company. Out of  the $(35,000,000, Holland holds'from $35,-  000,000 to $40,000,000, while the remainder  i.s held in England, Germany, and America. A payment of a dividend equal to J.  per cent would doubtless send C. P. R.  stock to par.   Reduction in C. P. R. Rates.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has reduced its freight charges on  certain commodities from eastern Canada,  into Kootenay from .10 to 33.1 per cent.  The articles affected chiefly are furniture,  glass, iron, paints, paper, etc., which receive a discount of 10 per cent: on coal  oil, 20 per cent: on  green fruits, roofing  Heinze Throws Up C. & K. Bond.  M. G rider, of the Trail Mining Company,  owners of the Columbia <fc Kootenay, and  a representative of F. Aug. Heinze, spent  Monday at the'mine taking an inventory  of the machinery, supplies, etc. This is  thelastbusiuess formality between Heinze  and the company, preparatory to the  latter obtaining control of the property.  There is some uncertainty as to whether  the owners of the property will commence  development in search of richer ore bodies  or sell immediately to an'English syndicate. Heinze. is reported to have said  that the ore from the Columbia & Kootenay was of such a low grade that he  could not handle it at a profit in his own  smelter at Trail.  British American Corporation Buys.  The sale of the Great Western at Ross-  laud to'-the British American corporation  was completed at a special meeting of the  company held at Rossland Monday evening in the office of Hon. T. Mayne Daly,  the solicitor for the British American. It  was a stockholders' meeting, and some 900,-  .000,shares, out of a total of 1,000,000, were  i-epresented. The deal was made on the  basis of $101,000 for the property. Of this  $50,000 was cash, and $-15,000 payable  April 1th. The old company retained accounts due it on the sale of surface rights  to the extent of $5000, aud the British  American Corpora tion assumed an indebtedness of about $1000 contracted by the  company.   Object to FreeGoods for Dawson City.  The Victoria and Vancouver boards of  trade have protested against the admission, free of duty, of goods consigned  from the United States for the relief of  the miners of Dawson City., They contend that the.relief is not needed, aud  that when it may be needed the Canadian  authorities will be able to attend to it.  Should any such goods be admitted to  Canada free of duty it should be made a  condition that the goods be consigned to  the Canadian authorities at Dawson City  for disposal, otherwise it may be found  that their importation will partake of a  commercial venture.  They are not Over Modest.  A peculiar grubstake case has cropped  up in Spokane. Two years several Spokane men grubstaked Tom Mallory to the  extent of $1-10 to prospect in Washington.  This service was performed and Mallory  eventually drifted to Seattle. From this  point he was given free transportation to  the Klondyke, and was lucky enough in  1807 to secure a claim on Eldorado creek,  as well as several other locations. The  Spokane men who put up the $1-10 two  years before, are now endeavoring to  secure three-fourths of Mallory'sKlondyke  holdings.     ' ���  Italian Killed on Crow's Nest Road.  At noon yesterday an Italian named  Raphael Greco who was employed as a  blacksmith by contractor Welch on the  Crow's Nest railway was struck by a Ily-  ingpieceof rock. Greco's skull was crushed  in. The steamer Nelson made a special  trip to this city with the injured man,  who was turned over to Dis. La Ban Ac  Forin. They did what they could for the  sufferer, but his case was hopeless and he  died early this morning.  There  is  Very Little  Profit ir.    Working  Property Under Present Conditions.  At the  second  annual meeting  of  Lillooet-Fraser  Hiver  Company held  ceutlyin London, 11. M. .Home-Payne  ported a debit   balance on the year's  orations of the company of $15,000, and as5  is usual in such cases he placed the blame  Tor the failure of the company iu realizing;  his   predictions,   upon   B. Jamie.iou,   late'  chief engineer  for  the  company.    With'  respect to the Lanark mine Horne-Payne!  stated that in all 10,200 tons of ore wore,  treated  in   the  company's   concentrator,!  milled about 0 to 1 aud produced 1820 tons!  of concentrates, wliich yielded a net profits  of $1(5,000.    The small profit Home-Payne',  said was accounted for by the heavy cost(  of mining aud the difficulty in marketing  that class of ore.  From the returns of the  company in May it will be seen that the  Lanark crude oredoets not exceed in value  $11  per ton.    During May the company  ^hipped 130 tons of concentrates, rho product of 3200 tons of crude ore, the gross-  value of   which   was  $35.000.,, Assuming  that  the  Lanark  concentrates  held   the  same value for the year the value of concentrates  marketed aggregated  $115,000,  out of which the net profit to  the  company  was only  $1(5,000.     When  concentrates which average over $80 to the ton',  yield less than $0 profit it is evident that  the Lanark is a very expensive mine to  work or that there is a heavy penalty  paid for the the treatment of its product.  Home-Payne announced that in view of  the expense attending the working of the  Lanark, the company had decided to close  it down.    With respect to fhe other properties of the company Horne-Payne said  that the Sunshine group had so far given  much better results than any of the other  properties.    The ore was so rich that, iii  spite of the onerous conditions prevailing^  the property was paying for its own development by a sinaii shipment of 10 tons  a week. i  BY-LAW   AGAINST   AUCTIONEERS?    \  ���It.Is Introduced and Passes Its Third Reading,.

With the exception of gold bullion valued at $0,300, the product of the Fern  mill, and 20 tons of ore from the Cliff  mine at Rossland, whicli was consigned to  the Northport smelter, the mineral exports for the week were drawn wholly  from the mines of the Slocan.    The  Hall  Mines smelter made no shipments, during  the week, and if any were made from the  Trail Greek smelter they did not arrive in  Nelson in time to be included in this  week's exports.

A Record of Which Any City Council Mifi-ht  Very 'Well Peel Proud.  Those who take an interest in municipal  matters should read the statement of the  receipts aud expenditures of the corporation of Nelson which appears on the fourth  page of this issue. It enables the rate payers to see where every dollar of the civic  revenue went, and should enable them to  arrive at a conclusion as to whether the  present members of the city council have  discharged the duties of their office creditably or not.  Although the liabilities of the city  amount to $53,10(5,(51, the assets of the corporation may safely be set at close upon  $50,000. This sum would not include the  large amounts spent upon the streets and  sidewalks which total $1725 and $11S2 respectively. Aside from the money realized by the sale of city bonds, the revenue  of the corporation for the year was $1(5,:  571.-13, and with respect to the bonded indebtedness of the city--$50,000���it may be  stated that the revenue from the city  waterworks is capable of meeting both  principle and interest upon the same at  the time of maturity.

London, Ontario, was the scene of another catastrophe on Monday evening by  which 23 citizens came to their death and  about 100 were injured. The municipal  elections were held in London on Monday  and iu the evening about 2,000 people  gathered in" the city hall to listen to the  speeches of the 'successful candidates.  When the meeting was being called to order a large section of the floor gave way  and over 200 people %vere thrown to the  street level a distance of about 15 feet.  A large iron safe and a heavy steam coil  fell on the heads of the struggling crowd  together with timbers of various kinds.  Ou Tuesday evening the death roll nnm--  bered 23. The dead are: Crawford Beckett, J. W. Borland, Oswald Bruce, L. W.  Burke, AVilliam Burridge, Noble Carruth-  ers, AVilliam IT. Dell, John Fellows*. John  Fortner, James Harris, Stewart Harris.

Towe, however, will probably die, also Walter Beechy, who is injured internally.  A Vancouver Man Talking Through His Hat.  R. C. Campbell-Johnson, who was recently in charge of the Qtieen Bess mine  in the Slocan, is now on his way to Great  Britain. In Vancouver he made the  statement that the owners of the Queen  Bess have now $500,000 worth of ore in  sight. Had R. C. Campbell-Johnson stopped at this his statement might have been  accepted. He made the mistake, however,  of proceeding to discuss the smelting problem, and went on record as saying that it  the Slocan had local smelters a saving of  from $30 to $10 per ton could be saved  upon the ore shipped at preseut to Pueblo  and Omaha. Since R.C. Campbell-Johnson is so far out in his statement ss-ith respect to the smelting question, there will  no doubt be considerable speculation as  to how far he is wide of tlie truth with  respect to the ore in sight in sight in the  Queen Bess. When R. C. Campbell-  Johnson gets time he. might explain to  the people of Vancouver-why it is that  the Pilot Bay smelter remains idle if there  is a'chance of saving from $30 to $10 per  ton upon all the Slocan ore that goes out  of the country for treatment���?   <  Railway Company Moves Promptly.  The Canadian Pacific Hallway Company has made arrangements whereby  the merchants of Nelson may compete  with the merchants of Spokane for the  trade of the Fort- Steele section. The  company has instituted a regular steamer  service between Nelson and Armstrong's  Landing on Ivootenay lake, the steamer  Nelson leaving this city every Tuesday  and Friday morning at 0 o'clock. 11. E.  Macdonell. the railway .company's traveling freight agent, is now nicking ti trip  over the road to Fort Steele for the purpose of completing arrangements for the  handling of freight. An agent has been  appointed at Armstrong's Landing, who  will look after freight arriving there tind  turn it over to the stage company at present operating from Armstrong's Lauding'  to Port Steele. The prompt action of the  railway company in thus providing for  the transportation of goods will be appreciated by the business men of Nelson,  who are reaching out for the Fort Steele  trade.

There   will  be at  least three  companies in tlie field, two oi' wliich  mbliiif?  i'or   government conces-  -sions. while the third is anxious to build  into the country without any government  assistance \\ hatever. Such being the case,  one  would   naturally   suppose   that   the  company   which   proposed   to   give   the  Boundary Creek district railway facilities  free   of   charge,   would  be  given  a tree  hand.    If the   interests of  the   province  were alone considered it would be, but as  the granting of a charter to this company  will in a measure clash with the interests  of the charter mongers who -hold the V.  V. Ac K. and G. Ac XV. raihvay charters,  it  is safe to predict, and a stubborn  fight  will be made by them  against any measure   which  will  ensure Boundary Creek-  getting for nothing the railway facilities  which they  wish  to j put in and  tax the  provincial   treasury   all   the   way   from  $500,000 to $1,200,000.    The provincial government has already  made provision for  the  subsidizing  of any company  which  will give this section raihvay facilities, to  the extent of $-1000 per mile for .100 miles,  or $400,000. and for this subsidy, F. Aug.  Heinze, as the promoter of  the  C. & XV.  railway, and Messrs. Mann and Mackenzie,  as the purchasers of  ihe V. V. Ac li. railway  charter, are now  scrambling.   The  struggle was between them until recently,  when I). C. Corbin, of the Spokane Falls  Ac Xorthern and Xelson & Fort Sheppard  Railway companies entered the lists and  offered to give the district railway facilities at his own expense for the bare permission to do so.  A.s was  the  case  when   the  Xelson  Ac  Fort Sheppard 'railway was advocated, it  may be expected that Corbin's application  for a charter for the Boundary Creek railway will be opposed for the reason that it  will    have   a   connection     with    several  United   States  systems of  railways.    In  this respect the Boundary Creek district  is today in exactly the same position that  southern Jvootenay was when the  Nelson  ik Fort Sheppard railway project was advocated.    Those who say that ib is not in  the interest-- of Boundary Creek  to have  railway connection with the soutli must,  in order to  prove their contention, show  that the building and  operation  of  the  Nelson'& Fort Sheppard railway has not  benefitted the mining and commercial interests of southern  Kootenay.    There  is  not a man in Kootenay who  will undertake to make this assertion, and yet this  must be demonstrated  if the  contention  is to be established  that it is  not in  the  interests of Boundary Creek to have railway connection  with   the south.    In the  case of southern   Kootenay it  has  been  very clearly shown   that the building of  the Nelson Ac Fort Sheppard railway, and  that alone, secured to this section  of the  province I,lie benefits of railway competition.     Ilniv  can   it be  shown   that Boundary Cietik will suffer, by being opened up  by a branch of the same railway system  ���that contributed so greatly to  the deve/- !  op ment of this portion of the province.?  Those   who oppose the building of the  Corbin railway upon the ground  that it  will have connection with an American  system, go ou record as being opposed to  granting  Boundary  Creek railway competition of any kind, since raihvay competition   cannot   come    from   any  other  quarter.     Those  who oppose  the granting   of    a    raihvay   charter    to    J).   C.  Corbin. will,  by  this  action,   have done  what   they   could   to  deliver  Boundary  Creek over to the monopoly of the Canadian   Pacific  railway,     ft   matter1--   very  little whether they favor the V. V. Ac rC.  raihvay company or the C. & W. railway  company.    The first-named is already in  the hands of the Canadian Pacific railway  company,' and   it is  only  a  question  of  agreement as to terms when the Canadian  Pacific will acquire the charter of the C.  &.W. or Heinze company.    The question  that will come before the legislature will  be simply whether an  independent company shall be   permitted   to   build  into  Boundary   Creek   district   without   any  subsidy, or whether the legislature shall  heavily  subsidize   one   of   two   sets   of  charter-mongers who stand ready to sell  out   to   the   Canadian    Pacific   Railway  Company.  -j-  F. A i-c:. lii'ii.vzK is in New York endeavoring to induce capitalists to take hold of  '���he Columbia ifc Western rail was' charter  and build  a. railway from Peuticton  to  Rossland.,.  The representations which F.  Aug. Heinze is making in this connection  are interesting.    He says that the Columbia .&   Western    company   has   already  earned 000,000 acres of land under the subsidy act of the Columbia Ac Western Railway Company, which gave the company  "20,000 acres per mile for standard gauge  road and 10,200 acres per mile  for narrow  gauge.'  It is rather well known that the  Turner government gave F. Aug. Heinze's  company 10,200 acres per mile for the Kindle  tramway which he built from  the  Hossland mines to his smelter at Trail, or  100,000 acres in round numbers, but just  how Heinze's company earned  the other  110,000 acres  it  would   be interesting  to  learn,     lie   built  22 .miles of an  alleged  standard gauge raihvay from   Kobson to  Trail, which was not entitled to any subsidy whatever, but which if credited with  20,000 acres per mile would bring the total  land grant claimed by Heinze up to (iOO,- i  000 acres.    It will be interesting when the \  legislature meets to ascertain whether F. i  Aug.   Heinze   is    merely   taking   it   for  granted that the government  will grant  him  a land   bonus  for   the  Columbia tt  Western branch from Robson to Rossland,  or whether the government  has  agreed  that   F. .Aug.  Heinze shall have a land  grant for this branch of the C. Ac W. railway which the land grant act of the company   specially  exempts   from   the  land  bonuses   that  attach  to   the other   sections of the C. AcAV. raihvay.    This might  be listed as question number one.  West Baker Street, Nelson,, B. C.  that it.it i.s expected that at the next session of the legislaturean act will be passed  giving the Columbia & Western  Railway  Company the right to exchange a part of  its land grant for a subsidy of $0000 per  mile.,   instead   of   $-1000   per  mile.    This,  Heinze sets out, if obtained for 200 miles,  would mean $1,200,000.    This is as  far'as  the provincial aid will go, but the aid does  not end here.    Heinze says'lhat the Dominion government is favorably inclined  to giving  a, subsidy   of   either $0:100 or  $8000 per mile, or another $1,280,000, or  $1,000,000.    With  respect to this federal  aid Heinze says that during the last session of the Canadian  parliament Hon. A.  G-. Blair stated in caucus that  it was the  intention of tlie government to subsidize  the road to the extent.of $8000. per mile,  but that later developments interfering,  it was decided  best from a government  stand-point   to   allow  the  matter- to go  over  until the next session.     From the  above it will be seen ihat Heinze is representing that he expects government aid  aggregating $1-1,000 per mile for building  the Rossland-Penticton road.     It is not  necessary to say that such a bonus would  build the raihvay and  leave a  handsome  margin  for  the  promoters.    This  is the  scheme  whicli  the Rossland  Miner,  the    by his c  personal or��an..pf F. Aug. Heinze, is ad-    good shr  vocating.<C-It ecanmends a scheme which  its owner,say-y will cost  the country $2,-  800,000  in  cash  bonuses, and  which will  eventually   place  vthe   Boundary    Creek  country under the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's monopoly, when  Heinze  and   the C.   P.  R.   came   to   terms.    The  Rossland Miner commends this scheme as  against D. C. Corbin's plan of building a  railway into Boundary Creek at his own  expense,  and  looking  to  the   legitimate  railway business of the section for his returns rather than the profits incidental to  the   construction   of   state aided  roads.  Those who are opposed to granting aid for  raihvay    construction    where    none    is  needed, might fairly interrogate the proj-  vincial  government as to what truth, if  any,  there is in Heinze's statements rer  specting  the  present and   future   public  aid to his railway schemes.

Mines smelter at Nelson cost less than  $100,000, including all expenditures up to  Sept. 80th, 1807, and compared with the  Hall Mines smelter there i.s no reason why  the Trail smelter should have cost $100,-  000 more at the outside. This would  bring the cost of the Heinze smelter up to  $200,000, upou which the profits of the  first year was $103,000. In the face of this  is there any necessity for further subsidizing the private business enterprises of  F. Aug. Heinze either in the matter of  supplying him with free fuel, or in subsidizing railways to facilitate the delivery of ore at his smelter. Heinze's affairs  by his own showing are now in pretty  ape, why not give the mine-owner  ot Boundary a chance to secure railway  and smelting com petition '1  LONDON,  ENGLAND  VICTORIA,  B.

Heinze's  statement of the assets of this company���  the B. C. S. Ac 1.1. company���-is also of interest, in that it gives another illustration of the munificence of the provincial  government.

A.s an additional inducement for the  New York capitalists to take over the C.  Ac W. charter, F. Aug. Heinze represents  that the provincial government has offered a bonus of $1000 per mile for 100  miles of the road from Hossland to Peuticton, and that there is no question but  that this aid will be increased so as to  provide for 200 miles.    Me  further recites  places at S51S.000 and he states that the  profit upon the first year's operation was  $10.5,000. The interest in these figures is  contained in the fact that upon his own  showing the philanthropic Heinze has  made a profit of 20 per cent upon the  capital invested in the treatment of the  ores of Rossland for one year. A little  consideration will no doubt show that if  the profits amounted to $.K)!-5,000 the earning upon the capital invested was nearer  ���10 per cent than 20 per cent.

Wonderful way the demonstration of its  efficacy  in  the case of  Nobe  Sprackett,  who,  was  to Jiave  been  hanged  by  the  vigilance committee, in the early days of  the  great stock  ranges of eastern  Montana and western  Dakota.   To 'this day  the grizzled plainsmen will tell how prayer  saved Xobe's neck from the noose and his  soul from a sudden plunge into the mysterious shades of eternity, for which transition lie was as unfitted as the average  horse   thief   who   has  been  caught red-  handed in the commission of that worst  of offences against the law of the prairie.  Nobe was caught in the act of enticing  away at the end  of a  halter  strap  the  favorite saddle horse of sheriff  Weaver.  Ln defence of himself he stated to his accusers of the vigilance committee that he  had purchased a halter and was carrying  it home, and  that the horse must have  thrust his head into it and followedafter,  without his knowledge.    Nobe  was a resourceful rascal, but the committee,'while  .commending the ingenuity of his.defence.*  unanimously    pronounced    him   a    liar,  characterized his defence as a "pernicious  alibi," aud  sentenced him  to  be hanged  from the tall pine, a lone tree on the brow  of a lonlier hill.  The    vigilance   committee   was   accustomed to ballot on the punishment ot offenders against its laws.    The ballot  box  j was a cigar box, with a slit iu the lid, and  j '   the  ballots  were poker   chips,  red   and  ' white.    The leniency of any member of  ~3" the committee was indicated  by the de  posit of a white chip. A red chip meant  a vote for hangiug. The ballot must be  unanimous, and it may be stated by way  of parenthesis that the offer of the white  chip was largely a matter of form.-  YVheu the ballot was spread upon the  question of Sprackett's punishment a  white chip, by some inexplicable chance,  crept into'the box. It was a rule of the  committee that the presence of a single  white chip might be considered accidental, and the ballot be ordered repeated.  This wise provision had resulted in au almost unbroken series of convictions, since  no member of the committee, who might  have voted for clemency upon the lirst  ballot, had had the hardihood to differ  with his fellows a second time. The repi-  tition of the ballot in the case of Sprackett  had the usual result of eliminating the  white chip. Thereupon the chairman of  the committee rubbed his hands and congratulated his fellows upon the superiority of trials by committee, as compared;  with trials by a regularly constituted  court, such as were occasionally witnessed  .at the county seat some miles away.  The formalities of the trial having been  concluded and the punishment of the accused having been settled upon, the chairman appoiuted a notification committee  of three to wait upon the prisoner and  inform him of the .judgment that had  been reached in his case.V  "Break the news kinder easy like," suggested the chairman. "Nobe may be ex-  pectin' to get off with a dressin'of tar aud  feathers." ...���,.  The notification committee provided  itself with a quart of red liquor, and  started for the ramshackle jail, where  Sprackett was trussed up to an upright  supporting timber by means of numerous  folds of a lariat.  The spokesman proffered the flask.  "Have a drink, Nobe," he said, "fer its  the hist you may ever get."  Nobe seized the flask without a word  tind took a drink that left the greater  portion of the receptacle a transparent  emptiness.  "By gosh, you must be dry, Nobe," he  ventured.  "There may be none of this where I'm  agoinV' explained the prisoner.  "Say, that would be hell," observed one  of the committee.  "The committee has passed on your  case, Nobe," said the spokesman again,  after a brief pause. "They have decided  on"���he left the remainder of the explanation wordless and passed his forefinger  about his throat significantly, by way of  conclusion.  Sprackett's face betrayed no emotion.  "When;-" was his only interrogatory.  "Tonight."  "Where?"    ���        ,  "The tall pine."  There was another pregnant silence.  The spokesman was the first to break it.  "Have another drink, Nobe," he suggested. Nobe took it, and the committe filed  gravely out. An unpleasant duty had  been performed.  The night came, a mild moonlit one, and  up through ti rough and thickly wooded  canyon the members of the committee  rode, to visit the sentence of death upon  the unfortunate Sprackett. Sprackett's  feet were fastened together by means of a  LOST-On Tuesday evening a bull-terrier pup answering lo the name of Punch.

At the tall pine  the calvacade was halted, the prisoner removed from his horse, his arms fastened  behind his back and his feet tied tightly  together to prevent any struggle after he  should have been elevated at the rope's  end. Then the chairman addressed the  convicted man, about to pay the penalty  of his crime: ��� 0  "Nobe Sprackett, you have been found  guilty of horse steahu'by the committee  here present. The same committee has  voted to fix your punishment at death.  The same committee is about to proceed  with your punishment. What have you  to say before you shall be h'istedi-"  Sprackett gazed about him at Lhe grim  gathering for it few moments in silence.  Then lie spokt.*:  Mr. Chairman,'' lie said, "1 have but one  request to tnake before the execution,  which is about lo take place. My mother  when 1 was a little child, taught me to  pray. I prayed at her knees, every night,  for year.-., and it would have been betLer  I'or me had i kept to the path in which  she first set my feet. But I forsook it,  ;ind now I am here, under s-entence of  death, and I would like to pray again as 1.  did when a little child. Mr. Chairman, I  want permission co pray, aud J want your  promise that J shall not be interrupted  while I am praying."  There were tears iu his eyes when he  finished, and his voice jtrembled. The  committee were touched by his plea.  Nobe had a good heart in him after all.  The chairman was sorry for him.  " Vou have the permission of the committee to pray, aud no one of the committee will interrupt you," he said.  "Vou hear, gentlemen," said Nobe, "J  am to be allowed to pray, and none of you  are to interrupt me till i have finished."  "Oh, Lord," he began, "1 ask you to  listen a little while to me, a miserable  sinner, who has been sentenced to death.  In a little while. Lord, I shall be hanging  from yonder pints tree, a dead man. I  shall be swinging ihere a helpless corpse,  aud my soul fled -to eternity. I shall be  there, Lord, lifeless clay, and my life will  be gone out forever. I shall be suspended  there, Lord, a soulless body, and my heart  shall have ceased to beat. I will be there  still, and cold, and lifeless, and stilt", and  silent, and inanimate, and my eyes will  be sightless, and my lips will be silent,  and my tongue will be stilled, and my  heart will have ceased to beat, and my  life will have gone out forever."  The chairman of the committee fidgeted  a little at tiiis particularization. "Tell  him you'll cash iu your checks, Nobe, and  let it go at that," he urged in a whisper.  But Sprackett never lowered his glance  or ceased his praying.  "Lord, it is hard for me to think that in  so short a time I shall be lifeless clay. It  is hard to believe that 1 shall be hanging  from yonder tree a corpse���  "Lord, is he goin' all over it again,"  ejaculated the chairman, in despair.  Sprackett prayed on���"whose soul has  lied,���', whose heart has ceased to beat,  whose pulses are stilled, aud whose lips  are forever silent. It "is bitter, Lord, to  think what I shall be when the sentence  of this committee has been carried out,  and I am raised on yonder tree, to become  a lifeless corpse, soulless clay, a dead  body, wl ose" soul has fled, whose eyes tire  sightless, whose heart has ceased to beat,  aud whose life has gone out forever."  A member of the committee twitched  nervously at the rope with which the condemned man was to be executed. Another toyed with the handle of his revolver.   The chairman expostulated:  "Aren't you most prayed out, Nobe?" t  But the kneeling man took a long breath  and prayed again: "Lord, what is to become of me, a miserable sinner, when I  shall be suspended fro iu' yonder tree, a  corpse, when my life shall have gone out.  Lord���"  "Nobe, you, would be dead now if you  was a whole regiment,'.' ventured the  chairman. "Cut her short, for it's gettin'  late."      ..���..'���.*,  Still Prackett prayed.;��� Midnight, and  his voice was yet raised in exhortation.  One o'clock and the prayer was as far  from the end as ever. Two o'clock and  lie had prayed several members of the  committee into a sound sleep. Three  o'clock, and his tones became still more  sonorous, his accents still more' fervent,  'his attitude not less supplicatory, and his  energy..apparently undiminished. /Only  once had there been an effort to stop his  prayer, and then he recalled the promise  of the ^committee that he should be allowed , to pray uninterruptedly. It became a straight question of endurance,  with the odds in favor of Sprackett. Half  the members of the committee mounted  their horses and rode home in disgust,  and still he prayed. ��� The chairman sat  upon the grass and raved, and still the  prayer continued.  *'' Four o'clock, and the first faint streaks  of the rising sun tinged the horizon, and  there was no apparent diminution in the  volume or energy of Sprackett's prayer.  Niue o'clock, and the prayer was fresher  and more earnest than at the beginning.  Ten o'clock, and the fierce heat of the  sun drove the chairman to the shade of  the tall pine, but the prayer followed him.  Eleven o'clock, and the chairman offered j  to secure a compromise with the committee, to change the sentence of death to  tar and feathers, and it was answered  with the monotonous accents of Sprackett as he prayed and prayed and prayed.  Noon, and the chairman offered Sprackett  the best horse in the region if he would  discontinue, but the prayer continued to  ascend. Twelve thirty, and the chairman fled in dismay, leaving Sprackett  alone and victorious. The tall pine had  been cheated of its victim. The efficacy,  of prayer had been proven.  ]STOTICE.
