Dividend Paying Mines.
a   Mineral   Output   of Upwards   of  One
Million    Dollars    Every    Month
In   The  Year
It Will Break Out In the Spring.
Tlie Henne-sey boys, whose names are
inseparably associated with the mineral
development of the Slocan, are at present
nursing a new mining excitement, which
they expect to have ready for the mining
public sometime this summer.
The new district which they are now
working in they have called the Cariboo
Hump country. It is about 12 miles back
from the west shore of Kootenay lake,
about opposite Sanea, and as a gold producer they expect it will rival the best of
the gold camps in Kootenay. Aside from
the work which they have done themselves, nothing save assessment work has
been done upon any of the properties, but
there are several very line showings, and
the only hindrance to development is the
present difficulty of access.
Four or five years ago W". M., J. J., and
D.  B. Hennessey located the  Wisconsin
£'«£'       and Lucky Strike claims on what they
* called the Hennessey  mountain.    They
kept the claims alive for two or three
years by doing assessment work, and in
order to ward off a lawsuit purchased a
jumper's title to their own ground for
$($00. A year ago they commenced development work in earnest and spent something over $4000 in opening up the property. In the absence of a trail from Kootenay lake they make Ymir their outfitting
point, which necessitated the crossing of a
divide to reach their claims.
The work done upon the claims consists of 125 feet of a tunnel, of which
70 feet is a cross-cut through granite.
Where the ledge was struck it was
found to be over 20 feet wide,
and after crosscutting it the tunnel was
run along it for the remainder of the 125
feet. The vein is in the contact between
(juurlzite and granite, the granite forming the footwall. The vein at its narrowest point is 20 feet wide and assays from
the same indicate an average value of $25
in gold, with small values in silver and
some copper. Much higher assays have
been secured and there is every reason to.
believe that much better copper values
will be secured when depth is attained.
At present the greatest depth secured by

erection of a concentrator much better results may be expected, a.s there is a large
quantity of concentrating ore which has
been taken out in course of development,
which only requires milling to re'.urn a
good profit to the company.
It is also likely that the Minnesota Silver Company, which is operating the
Ivanhoe property, will enter the Ivauhne.
on the list of permanent shippers this
spring. For the past four or five years
the eompauy has proceeded quietly'with
the development of the Ivanhoe. Last
year upwards of $10,000 were spent in
opening up the property. The result lias
been that so soon as the tramway is put
in the company is in a position to make
regular shipments.
The Noble Five Consolidated is also developing well. There are several fine
showings of ore in the property, and the
demand for Noble Five stock is on the increase. The company has sufficient money
in the treasury to thoroughly develop the
property without depending upon the
proceeds of ore shipments, and for this
reason there is not much likelihood of
resuming shipments until there is enough
ore blocked out to keep the concenvrator
going for a year or more.
Business is good iu Sandon for most
ventures, but the newspaper men are not
securing much of a corner on the wealth
of the district. Mr. Atherton says that
there is a rumor current that John M.
Harris, the owner of the greatest portion
of the city, has been forced to take over
one of the local papers. He further says
that it is a libel on Sandon to say that the
city is without water for domestic purposes. Sandon has always had sufficient
water for domestic purposes, aud has not
fared badly for electric lignt.

Will Add to the Fame of Their District
Their Shlpmonts This Year.
Hon. K It. Atherton, ppstmaster-gen-
eral, city councilor and merchant prince
of Sandon, left Nelson for Sandon this
niPruing, after spending a couple of days
iu this city looking after his real estate
To a Trihuke representative Mr. Atherton said that the mines of the Slocan
were keeping up their reputations as fortune makers. Just at present the Last
Chance mine is looked upon as the great
bonaD/.a property. The shipments from
the mine average one carload of ore per
day, and a sufficient force is employed to
keep the development considerably ahead
of the stopers. The ore from the Last
Chance nets the owners a profit of $75 a
ton over all charge?, so that it is easy to
see that the profits of the company are
large, although very little is heard of the
same in the newspapers. Men who secure
work at the Last Chance regard themselves as fortunate. The board at the
mine is regarded as the best in the Slocan,
and more attention is paid to the comfort
of the miners than in most of the other
mines. Men in the mine are paid $3.50
per day, and ail outside men receive $4.
At the Ruth mines development is proceeding satisfactorily, and it is now definitely understood that the company will
put in its concentrator this spring. This
company paid a handsome dividend upon
the past season's working, and with the

Golden seventeen miles over the old
"tote" rdadj part of the way pn
foot, He brought with „ him the writ
for the election and the npiuinatipii
papers pf government candidate Wells.
Due probably to the fact that he was late,
the returning officer was very greatly
flustered. He (shell proceeded tp redd the
writ, and afterward, drew the papers
nominating Wells from hispockets, whom
he declared elected by acclamation.
In order that the election should not gp
by default, th. supporters of the present
Ppposition party had arranged to bring
oiitThomas Forest, a Donald hotel-kepper,
and the papers nominating him, tPjgether
with the necessary cash deposit, were tern
dered to the deputy returning officer at
Donald* This officer in the absence Pf the
returning officer by law becomes the returning officer, but as he had not the Writ
for the election he said he could not receive the nomination papers. After re-
tuuning officer Griffith arrived the papers
nominating Forest were tendered to him,
but for some unaccountable reason he refused to accept the same. Mr. Lucas expressed the opinion that while the whole
thing was clearly illegal, it was
idle to say that there was any design in
the action of the returning officer. Mr.
Lucas attributed the whole trouble to tue
fact that the returning officer was very
much flustered and did not appreciate the
effect of his action in declining to receive
the nomination papers of candidate
Returning officer Griffith resided in
Donald for about ten years, and removed
to Golden when the government office
was transferred from Donald to
that place. He has always been held in
high esteem by the people of Donald. He
is a brother-in-law of H. E. Beasley, superintendent of the Canadian Pacific branch
Hues at Nelson.   ,

The MacPherson  Bill That Will Hurt O. P
Building: Contractors.
The Canadian Pacific Rail way Company
has all its buildings of any size built by a
contractor named Tompkins, whose place
of residence is Brockville, Ontario. Tompkins never employs a skilled workman
who lives in this province if he dan get
one to come from the east. The reason
for this is that skilled workmen iu British
Columbia are paid 50 per cent higher
wages than like workmen around Brockville and other towns in Ontario. The
skilled workers of Vancouver^ have been
deprived of work time and again by this
man Tompkins's imported workmen. To
remedy the evil, Mr. Macphersoii of Vancouver has introduced the following bill
in the legislative assembly:
Her majesty, by and with the advice
and consent of the legislative assembly of
the province of British Columbia, enacts
as follows: ,,
1. This Act may*", be- cited as the
"Master and Servant Amendment Act,
1S99." . ■■        "
2. "The Master*and Servant Amendment Act, IS9S," is hereby repealed.
3. Any agreement or bargain, verbal or
written, express or implied,-which  may

Florence II. Banting has recorded the
location of a fractional mineral claim
near Whitewater station, and lying between the Vancouver, Pauper's. Dream,
Kaslo and Ha eel mineral claims. Tlie locality is an excellent one.
With the advent of milder weather
there is a decided Increase in the quantity
of ore shipped over the 'Kaslo <fc Slocan
railway. Yesterday's train had more
than the usual number of ore cars attached. The contents were divided
amongst different properties.
Crap games, which were being run in
two or three establishments in the city,
have been closed by order ot the mayor.
Other games scarcely less dangerous are
still allowed with no interference on the
part of the his worship.
Colonel Sam Wharton is away off in his
statement to The ThiiiUiVio that Kaslo
has not a drop of water for domestic purposes. There has not been a moment this
winter when the city was without its full
supply for every purpose for which it was
intended. Individuals may have suffered
from frozen" up service pipes but there
has been no diminution of quantity.
There has been some curtailment in the
electric light service, but the city was
only a few days without the usual supply.
Everything is now all right.
W, J. Tretbeway has just returned from
an inspection of the Dardanelles, of which
he is the manager. Ho reports that at a

good returns ate confidently expected.

plumbers' lots of occupation On Wednesday, and while their countenances were
beaming, a different sort of expression
was upon the faces of the unfortunate

giving his attention to the hydrants
which are kept always ready for use.
The bill for costs in the matter of the
resolution of the city council to set aside
the action of the police commissioners
was presented at the meeting on Wednesday evening. It amounted to $50, and
was approved by the city solicitors.
The ladies who have the free reading
room in charge are not quite satisfied
with the room assigned them in the new
city building. They say that their application was made when the building
was first projected, and they should have
been provided with better accommodation in the planing of the structure.
They have not taken possession of the
room allotted them.'
Special Meeting of the City Council.
At a special meeting of the city council
held this afternoon a letter was received,
from W. A. Galliher, city solicitor, giving
as his opinion that the council had no
power to grant money in aid of the free
library and reading room. A discussion
as to the best means of overcoming the
difficulty.' followed, and on motion of
alderman Thompson seconded by alderman McKillop, a resolution was passed

of tho National Dock Workers Union of
Great "Britain to organize tlie American
longshoremen and form an international
union, has been unsuccessful. Disgusted
and disheartened, all his plans knocked
on the head, and practically legislated
out of office as the head of the organization he founded here, he has sailed for
England. M.cl!ugh. seemed to meet with
success at first when he came to New
York and organized the American 'Long-
.shormeu's Union with a dozen brandies in
New York, Brooklyn, Hoboken, Baltimore
and Philadelphia, and had a paper membership of li>,000. A feeling arose against
the union having the representative of ah
English organization, who was not a United States citizen, at its head. The feeling
became stronger until meetings, were
held and the union reorganized without
any reference to'McHugh's plans, and decided that each branch should manage its,
own business and finances. This left
president. McHugh without anything to
do and he returned to England.

Colonel   San  .Martiri,   of   tlie  Spanish
ai»my, has indeed Come   to   (in   unh.'ippy
end.   Allien   general   Miles    arrived   at
J'oiice,  in  Porto Tlico,  Sail Martin   commanded    a    force    of    1000    meij      ill
the    town,     but    was     so     surprised:
that    he    uiaile     bo    attempt    at    re-
.sistanci!,   anil    fell    back     through    the
island  to San  .'Juan.    When  he reached
the  Porto Rican  capital  he   was court-
martialed,  by   order   of  captain-general
Macias, and condemned to  be shot.   The
unfortunate colonel begged that he might
die in  Spain.   This request,  in  view of
the fact that he had  won six  medals by
bravery  in  battle, was granted.   Meanwhile, general Brooke and  other Americans who had, been engaged  in  the campaign petitioned forclemency, showing the
Spanish    authorities   that    colonel   San
Martin   could   not    possibly   have  done
otherwise  than retire.   Despite the tact
that he did the" best he could under the
circumstances,  the Spanish  war department has sentenced him for life to a penal

When the  campaign first commenced, the battle cry  was, "Vote for Farwell and save Kootenay !" We suggest a new cry, namely,  "Vote for Farwell and save Farwell !"  The Economist of Nelson and the Colonist of Victoria claim that the one issue  in this campaign is the saving of the constitution. Yet, iu Victoria the following  was the appeal that turned the day. It  wus printed on cards and handed every  voter as he entered the polling place:  "Vote for Martin, the C. P. Ii. and Vancouver. Martin's candidates are: Gregory,  Paterson and Stewart."  Trains have been running on the  Crow's Nest Pass railway for a considerable length of time. The service is every  other day, that is, a train comes west one  day and returns east the next day. The  people along the line of railway asked the  postoflice department for a mail service  over the road. After a time the people  from Cranbrook east were given two  mails a week. A like service has been  ordered from Cran brook west.

Many Handsome ReMiclences Surrojinaed fcy  BeA.utt.lful Orounds,  A Vplipiteer army officer, talking to a  iVevv Fork j;cporler recently thus graphifcr  ally ifecrjbed whltt he had seen, in Manila  whence lie hild j'tiSt returned :  UTAW city is nither nice appearing.  Most pf the houses ar& on. Ut0tyf bqt  tb-rearea -number of handsome 'build-in^,,  including the palace^ and some fine private  Residences with belititifui grounds. What  did we .U'l.'r A man never iisks that in  Manilhi, for if he did he would never eat.  He'd starve. That is��. an American would.  "A lot of us dined one day at a restaurants We were hungry. Tlie proprietor  told us he made the host ragdut in Manila.  We ordered it and riced fruits. We dined  generously. It was the very best stew or  ragou11 ever ate. We were liberal in our  tips to the landlord; we covered him with  t'oiif-plirirent. and promised to make him  frecpient visits. Alasf how our dreams  are sometimes shattered.  "Wo sipped our coffee and smoked our  Mail It cigars. Cigars are so plentiful  that the cafes and restaurant's keep quantities i f them on the table, free of charge,  for their guests. We sauntered out into  the moonlit street and into the garden  adj.lining the restaurant. We saw, as we  thought, evidences of a cemetery. Anns,  JHgs, skulls glistened there in the moonlight. We all had queer thoughts. I  spoke up.  " 'Boys, it, looks as if we had been eating   babies,'   I   said.    All   turned  white.  The shock  was   terrible.   We stopped a  passer-by.  " 'In tliis a cemetery?' one of us asked.  " 'No, _ir/  "'What aie those head., arms, legs?'  "He laughed and said 'monkeys.'  "Well, that was uot so bad as Filipino  babies, but it was next to it. We wan*  dered home sadder but wiser men. After  that we ate fish, of which th.re are many  varieties, and water ox, a peculiar looking animal with long horns that lives, as  much as possible in the water up to its  neck.  "The people are good-uatured, kindly,  lazy, but quite intelligent, and can be  made good, self-supportingcitizens. Under  Spanish rule they were cowed and cheated.  For instance, the firemen were paid off  by one of our paymasters. One of the  Filipino firemen got $22. He kept $8 and  placed the other $1-1 back on the table.  "'What do you mean by that?' asked  the paymaster.  " 'I never get but $8,' answered the  Filipine. 'The chief firemen get $5, the  assistant chief gets $5, the mayor gets $1  and I get $8.'  "'Vouare under A-mericans now, and  you get $22 for yourself,' said the paymaster.  "The Filipino looked surprised, took  the money, marched over toward some of  his friends aud explained matters. They  hugged and kissed each other, aud looked  thoroughly happy and mystified. American honor, as yet, was almost beyond  comprehension.  "The Spaniards are cunning financiers.  They knew how to increase their revenues  iu the Philippines. All the servants and  laborers were obliged to pay tribute. As  soon as men or women reached the age to  work or serve as servants they were  obliged to get a cedula or written permission or passport from the authorities iu  their city or village, aud to pay a certain  fee to it. In this way great sums of money were collected. It was far from fair,  for character depended mostly on the  kindness or uukiudness of the employer.  Certain fines were given for a bad character, so even if au employe were everything he should be, the enmity of his employer might not only prevent him from  securing a better place, but might also  subject him to excessive fines. Thanks to  Americau valor, the character passport is  dead and the Filipino can breathe freer.  "Yea, I saw many marks of cruelty, but  one of the saddest scenes I witnessed was  on the day the political prisoners were released from their chains. Some 300 Filipinos were in the political prison in  chains, for offences, or so-called offence-',  against the Spanish government. The  prison was not over presentable and every  prisoner manacled.. The irons on his  wrists were fastened together and a few  were chained to the walls or posts. Au  American officer had the honor to free  them from these revolting punishments.  He first told them that their cases would  be carefully looked into and they should  have full justice and an honest hearing  and be dealt with fairly according to  their crimes, if crimes had been committed. >  .?;���'���,'You^-wilhmever,.wear cha.ias:fagain,;  ibiifc* ���U_^Itreated^Ksi; Americansyaj-e'^dealt  -with.frhe.said. _. , ,..,������������  .������, _ _ ���..���r..

The publication of Sir Robert Peel's  correspondence has thrown strong light  on the late Benjamin Disraeli's political  morality. It has beeu pointed out that  seldom has the lie direct been brought  home so conclusively. The letters show  Disraeli abjectly imploring sir Robert  Peel for office in 1SI1 and he also got his  wife to write him iu the same straiu, but  without success. Soon after Disraeli  turned on Peel and hurled all kinds of  sattire aud abuse at him. Peei replying  to this virtulent attack expressed surprise  that Disraeli should have wanted to join  his ministry, whereupon Disraeli with unblushing effrontery arose and said: "I  can assure the house that nothing of the  kind has occurred. I never asked a favor  of the government, and with respect to  my being solicitous for office, it is entirely  unfounded." Sir Robert Peel, it further  appears, with wonderful self-restraint  and respect for the good name of the  house, refrained from producing the letters showing that Disraeli did not tell the  truth, but the letters now published  prove Disraeli's dishonesty.

That the good old days of saiiiggling:  are oyer is on the face of it a fact, but the  good young days are sufficiently in evidence to cause the eicise officials of the  old country considerable annoyance and  supply them with plenty of work. Cases  of suspiciously stout dock laborers aud  others of the same class who walk with a  distinct limp are of frequent occurrence.  Only a few months ago a very stout  laborer endeavored to pass the gatekeeper at the docks, but so fat was he  that ah examination, and not a medical  one, was deemed absolutely necessary;  before the authorities had finished with  him the man was relieved of six pound.  of tobacco, which he had attempted to  conceal, and double the ordinary duty  that Britain expects every man to pay.  The wily Chinee makes valiant attempts to deprive this country of the  duty due on tobacco imported. Early  this year, a customs officer noticed some  copper wire hanging down the casing of  the funnel of the steamship Antonor, and  investigation proved that 23 lbs. ot cigars  were dangling at the other end, the owner  of yvhjch was. a certain JVfong .'Sharif who,  .K.onment.v.-.Underterred^by*"the: iate��.:or.

A year last September a certain steamer  of 1500 toh^ hailitiig from Ilam burg, was  suddenly raided on entering Melbourne  by detective*, who were rewarded by  find i ng a vast n urn bet* of excisable articles  hidden behind fklae pstieis, bulkheads,  and by the aid of false bottoms. Even  the pen, rite, and sugar bins in the cook's  galley had false bottoms* and contained  cigars and, tobacco, while behind the  luirrdrx. and in clothes-presses furthet'  .tores of dutiable articles were round? the  .ship, which was seized as security for  the payment of the enormous fines, was  specially constructed to? smugglihg.  i But smuggling is not confined to these  kIioi es.: Some months ago an American  .policeman was considerably startled wlie^;  tin exhausted pigeon almost fell into his  hands, but was even more astounded  when examination discovered to him a  number of diatuouds secured to the legs,  neck, and tail of the poor bird. As the  duty on diamonds is very high in the  States,..it is more likely that the bird  adorned in the manner described was  thrown into the air from some steamer  entering the harbor.  Between France, Belgium and Germany  great quantities of tobacco are smuggled,  for the simple reason that 25 kilogrammes  of the weed, worth 50 francs in Germany,  attain a value of 200 francs when brought  into France. The smugglers have various  ways of effecting an entrance; one is for  a party of horsemen loaded with tobacco  and armed with clubs to charge down upon the douaniers and overcome all objects  by the impetus of their steeds. Carts  drawn by horses, the harness of which is  provided with sharp knives like the  chariot wheels of Boadicea's time, are  also called into requisition, while the  smugglers are armed with pepper, stones  and acid sub.��*tnnce�� wherewith to check  the onslaught of the officials. Quite recently the douaniers got wind of the approach of a certain well-known smuggler  in a carriage filled with tobacco, and prepared a pleasant reception for him by  stre tching a rope across the road to trip  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  up the horse. The plan was successful,  the horse and carriage were upset, and  the smuggler shot as he lay helpless on  the ground, which his brother, in lodging  a complaint with the local public prosecutor, justly remarked was unnecessary.  When examined the carriage was found  to contain 900 pounds of Belgium tobacco.  This is but one of the many frontier tra-  gadies. Another frontier incident, though  not so tragic, occurred about a year ago  when some unfeeling French customs officials arrested a funeral procession coming  from Belgium, and having deprived the  pall-bearers of their mournful burden,  proceeded to open the coffin, which alas 1  contained a quantity of fine lace in place  of a corpse. The "mourners" did not wait  to proceed with the burial, but took to  their heels, leaving the departed one  behind.  To cheat the octroi duties the schemes  of smugglers are almost numberless.  Dugs are wrapped round and round with  lace and sewn up in the skius of bigger  dogs; other dogs are trained tp dart between the legs of the officials and carry  the goods they bear to certain places  where they can be received with safety.  The cycle, too, has been found very useful by smugglers; sometimes the tubing is  made extra thick, in which case the  chances are in favor of the interior being  used as a reservoir for alcohol, which is  drawn off by a small tap placed in the  bottom bracket. Alcohol, however, is  not the only article introduced iu this  manner, for only a year ago last Augusta  butcher boy, a cyclist, was arrested on  the Belgian frontier and taken to Lille,  the tubes of whose machine were, filled  with peppercorns. The machine was confiscated, the rider imprisoned for six  mouths and a fine of ��10 imposed. Just  previous to this capture the wily customs  officials at Lille seized a locomotive. The  engine in question was a Belgian one, and  conveyed a train from Tournai into  France; the officials had for a long time  had their suspicions of it, and these suspicions were verified when they examined it and found ten thousand cigars and  a like number of matches, eleven pounds  of coffee and a heap of tobacco stowed  away in the .tender and the bunkers^ o The ���  d|iyer*and���*stoker:|vere^alsdfeaW  n��-i'din"^afiti^^  *\t' ario��u��> pursuits.���-? j-J^Mcjm tty^.% $jj$$$^h]  liwhi.tisa*^ "dr"un*kfo^  ms'l eepjwhose.l egs; antf armsiW^reibound*?  ������ dr<3\y "��� upr-tos "tlie^gates. s qf>J.^aris��^,l|en*  -aAva'kened^tl^  5%pair"Xde:_fari"nfe."that;he Jhad*"been!��b6und5  *aiKl robbed-otdns/pur^erAyh;ile)ttipsy^hi|  i-ca r t�� w?as?u 11 eel ���h 1 g lit w 1 th y�� i a r k e ti ���gard en',  !iprx)d���uee,<t\vhi<:h." liaqv*oj3y4.ou^Iy��.;nQ'C'ft-beet)!j  s.bleiill.T-jiughiliV'heai'tily  ^ire>::;Qf ���|hq-(5l^dio!eard^'tlie^fficiHls ;al-  '$16wed'hiiii to"shufflefoJlvjWitiiduli:".rurther  CexalminationJ'butonce^round. the^corneL'  ,tha"b;ris1tut"<dIdycouue-yi^^^^^  ��'his\na^and8tr_ad0ogood ��h\ss escape;  ^hree"  0cRsksiot^exeeHenfcnobrandy- lurked?beneath  *    u��      U"1   r, ���   uu   n      d ,"uU   rfftia"   ft", n  .jn   .   #   n1 "n" nn n�� ' [f    H" ai% u 6n a   n rt  " n     n d> '  "those jgreens^vyhich ^were jnot- m|Sre v��ij-  "dant-thanf tlfe Officials wh"d"had passed  them souususpiQicjiisly.
