 A BUDGET OF MINING NEWS FROM  Slocan District.  New Denver, August 10.��� A strike of  importance is reported in town today  from the already famous Silver mountain This time it is on the Lost Tiger  group, owned by Hermann Clever of this  town���the luckiest man in seven counties. He owns the property himself, and  had the same crown granted last summer.  It is located beyond the Eclipse and close  to the "Alpha group. Work has been in  progress on the property for some time  past, being confined principally to open  cuts. A tunnel was run in from one of  tlmse, cutting the vein, which today  shows six or seven inches of good, high  grade galena. Development; will be continued on the find.  I). W. King is pushing work on the  Marion, on Silver mountain, which he recently bonded. Under I lie terms of the  agreement, he must ke<;p at least four  miners employed. Mr. King is confident}  of making an important mine out of tin-  property.  The owners of the Anglo-Saxon .group,  situa.ted east of the Mountain Chief, are  resuming work on that promising property. Last winter they erected a cabin,  built trails,and done 90 feet of tunneling,  besides stripping the vein. They now  purpose going down lower and drive in  to catch the ore exposed on the top showing. The owners are .Messrs. Pyninn,  Brindle, Thompson, Nicholson and Cotter  of this town.  A..T. HughesofSouris,Manitobn,apromi-  nent business man of that section, has  just arrived here. He is one of tho  heaviest shareholders in the Mount Mabel  Mining & Smelting Company, whose -properties are at the head of Finnell creek, a  tributary of Four-mile. Mr. Hughes will  superintend this year's operations on tho  group, work upon which' will- commence  next week. There is a good showing of  high grade ore on the property, assays  from which have gone over 800 ounces in  silver. Several openings have been made  and two or three ledges exposed. Shares  in the company are principally held in  Manitoba.  The receipts of the local record office  were upwards of $1000 for the month of  July, representing a large volume of business for one man to handle.  Sjj^*  FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 11,  I son.  PUBLISHED AT jTELSdN, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  ready for them now, but if they (the  men) thought they would force him or  tho Mine Owners' Association to pay  more than $8 per day of eight hours,  they worts very much mistaken, as the  mine owners and himself would hold out  as long as hhe men could, even if it took  a, year to determine the question. He  hinted at. the .promise 'of legislative  action by the government on tlie question, either in the dropping of the penal  clauses of I,he eight-hour law or the repeal of l,h(! entire act.  John Adams, the G.P.I1. brnkeinnn who  was crushed by the cars at Nakusp, was  brought (;<> the Slocan hospital here in nn  unconscious condition. He had several  ribs broken, but is now resting easily  from his hurts and bruises.  J. Christopher, recently;injured at the  Arlington, on Springer creek, is rapidly  recovering from his injuries at the local  hospital.  Last week the Enterprise mine on Ten-  mile creek shipped 100 tons of ore in bulk  to the Trail smelter. This makes 700  tons shipped under the management-of  the London & British Columbia Cold-  fields. One team is still hauling down  ore from the mine, but will soon complete the cleaning up of the property.  The owners of the Ohio, on Ten-mile,  are developing a new lead recently uncovered on that claim.  The Golden Canyon Gold &.Silver Mining Company are crown granting the  Alno Fraction and Alturus mineral claims.  There are in the neighborhood of fifty  men working at present on various Silver mountain properties near town.  Only one man is at present employed  on the Bosun, keeping everything in order. The : property is looking fine, ore  showing in the No. 1 and No. 2 tunnels..  T. Ey ton aud P. Mooney have staked a  group of claims alongside the Edmonton  group on Ten-mile creek, and in doing so  take in the cabins and workings of that  group. They maintain tlie owner of the  Edmonton, C. Sandison, was totally  astray in his calculations as to his own  ground, having had the work all done on.  j/eaM>w,;yaca^ *$7000';  KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS  Mining on a Fork, of Lemon Greek.  The Alexandra-Delley Mining Company  have five men at work on their claims up  on the second north fork of Lemon creek,  some twenty miles north of Nelson, and  two and a half miles from the end of  the Six-mile creek wagon road. There is  a 90-foot shaft on one claim, the ore from  which runs from $05 to $2S7 iu gold,  silver and lead values. At present the  work is confined to drifting on the ledge,  215 feet of work having been done. The  ledge shows live feet of vein matter, assays showing values of $50. Manager  Sealey, who is. in Nelson, says the Six-  mile creek road is a good sleigh road, but  not a very good wagon road.  Mining Operations Around Slocan City.  S. Moore, superintendent of roads and  bridges, was here yesterday and examined now being done on Springer  creek. The Butte claim, owned by C. B.  Taylor and "Kaslo" Murphy, has proved  to be valuable. Three feet of a vein carrying gold and silver have been uncovered while doing the assessment. Wagons  are being used to haul tlie Black Crimes  ore to town, which means quite a saving  over the cost ��of packing. The premier  adjoining the Golden AVedge and owned  by William taking out a good,  grade of ore. The Ottawa, Hamilton and  Toronto here have been bonded to J.  Williams, who also has the Chapleau  under bond. William Boig began work  oirthe group adjoining the Joker today.  Mr. Mansfield, who represents an English  company has it under bond.  Mine .Workers' Wages at Butte.  Butte, Montana, is the greatest center  of quartz mining in Americas The city  has a population of .50,000, all of whom  are dependent on the mining industry.  The great mines are managed by practical men, Marcus Daly amongst the number. The wages paid are good, and there  are few failures of business men.

The first ordinary general (statutory)  meeting of the Granite Gold Mines, Limited, was held on .Inly 28th at Winchester Mouse, Old Broad Street, K.C., Alexander McNab, J. I.'., chairman of the company, presiding.  Tlie secretary (George II.   White) having read the notice  calling the   meeting,  the chairman said - This meeting is called  in compliance with the act.    We are not  in a, position to make a   report, as   if we  had been working, and   there   will be no  formal motion to submit to you.    I may  remind you that our prospectus was only  issued on June 3, and of course it   is   impossible for me to give  you   much fresh  information.    Our' company   was   registered in April, and; as you know, we are  obliged by  law  to   hold  the statutory  meeting Avithin four months0 of registration in   England.    Regarding  our   registration in British Columbia, our solicitor  has   received   tlie following   letter  from  Mr. Main waring Johnston: "You can accept my assurance that there  Avill be no  difficulty in the way of registration or in  obtaining the crown  grants  to  the properties.    The titles are all in   order, and  it only requires the  necessary statutory  time to elapse and formalities to be complied Avith before the grants are  issued."  Therefore Ave hope Avithin  another Aveek  or ten days that our registration and our  'titles Avill be complete  in British Columbia as avell as here..   You Avill be glad to  know, hoAvever,  that  the directors continue to  receive  good  reports from the  mines.    A  general  strike  of  miners   in  British  Columbia seemed  as  though it  might have  caused  difficulties and  the  shutting doAvn of the mine, but captain  Duncan has utilized the  occasion  for instituting contract work,-which so far lias  proved  an  adArantage to  the  company,  and the mine  Avas  only  shut  down one  jday.'" The 20-stamp mill is on order, and  the foundations are at present being put  in.    The dam is also progressing, and will  soon be,built.  The flume is also in a very  foi-Avard  state.

"We have  a.ll   the   roads we  want.*' The denial was made in reference  to a report  that  the   C. I.'. R., Boston   &  Maine and   Now  York,   New  Haven   &  Hartford roads had formed a combination  ostensibly  against  the   interests   of the  New York Central.    Mr. Shaughnessy declined to discuss the   rumor  further.    In  railroad circles here not. much credence is  attached to the story.    It is pointed  out  that    the   Canadian    Pacific   and     New  York     Central    "are     in     rather    close  relations.      Dr.     Seward     Webb's     pet  road, the St. Lawrence and Adirondack,  which forms a division of the New York  Central, enters Montreal  over the Canadian Pacific tracks, and the Canadian Pacific, the New York Central and the Michigan   Central   jointly  own   the  Toronto,  Hamilton & Buffalo railway, Avhich gives  'the Canadian   Pacific  entrance into Buffalo and connection   with the New York  Central system.    There  is  a close traffic  arrangement already in existence between  the Boston & Maine and the Canadian Pacific, and the  Noav  York,  Ncav Haven'���&  Hartford is included in this through the  Boston & Maine. ��� ���  For the past tAvo years the Canadian  Pacific has been engaged in building up  the Avinter port business at St. .'John,  New Brunswick. A great deal of money  has been spent in the construction of  Avhaiwes and the erection p�� eleA'ators,  and there is no indication that the Canadian Pacific is about to relinquish its  efforts in this direction, especially as it  now has access to Boston and Portland  over.'the Boston & Maine, and in A'iew of  its friendly relations with the-NeAV York  Central, Avould probably continue to possess them even if that road /were absorbed by; the NeAV York Central interests.."1        '   '.'������������'."���.��� :'.".A.'" :.:''---.,       ..'.'.. ..'-.

The following are extracts from a letter receiA'ed by a Avell-known resident of  Nelson from a relative Avho is serving in  a regiment of United States regulars in  the Philippine Islands. The letter Avas  Avritten at San Fernando and dated July  2nd :  "A year ago today was a hard day for  us   regulars.     We   were   iu   Cuba,   and  after having fought the Avhole of the previous day and marching the entire night,  we fought and dug  trenches the  Avliole  day without having had anything  to eat  for   more than   forty-eight hours.    Tho  hardships we went through in   Cuba will  never be forgotten.    AVe are  still  fighting ; still suffering���so the  recruits say.  Certainly we have not an easy'time of it,  but for those of us that A\'ent through the  Cuban campaign this is mere child's play.  If my   physical  condition had been the  same Avhen 1 came here as it was  when.I  landed in  Cuba, 1 am  positive  that  the  campaigning here would have had no effect on   mo .Whatever.    Even   as  it is, I:   ;,  really  think  that  my  health   is better    /  now than when 1 left the States.

ACTIVE   SPORT   FOR   OLD   MEN.  ��ft�� ��rilum��.  lh\ ily Edition   AVkkklv Edition   ... Eikst Ykak, No. 1S7  . Skvkntii Ykar, No. 3!)  Mr. McQuajg, one of the owners of the  Payne mine lias been   talking.    He  says  that arrangements are being made to list  the Payne mine on the London market at  an early date.    "What  caused  the  very  considerable slump in Payne stocks? was  asked of Mr. McCuaig.     "It Avas caused,"  he replied, "because  of a  rumor  Avhich  " had been circulated all over AA-jtha view  " to 'bear' the  stock.' ��. ft Avas  stated, in  " fact, that therniine had shut down and  u " would not be reopened.    You can judge  " Iioav absurd the story Avas, Avhen   it is  " avcII kuoAvn to  all  avIio  Avill  take the  " trouble to visit the  mine, that at the  " time of the temporary dosC-doAvn, there  "was   sufficient   ore   blocked    out   and  " ready for shipment to pay dividends at  "the present rate for the next five years."  Mr. McCuaig's statements  do  not agree  Avith the statements published in the  organs of the Miue Managers' Union.     The  organs  say  that the   slump   in  Payne  shares Avas caused by* the enforcement of  the eight-hour law in  British Columbia.  It Avill now be in order for the organs to  "deny Mr. McCuaig's statement  that the  Payne mine has sufficient ore blocked out  to  pay dividends  on  $3,000,000 for five  years.    If this statement is true, then the  contention of tlie organs that the owners  of the mine Avould be ruined if the  mine  - Avas worked by $:3.50-a-day men must  be  ���sirfcri fie- wild;  A sensible utterance by the Revel-  stoke Herald : "There is no light  '��� betAveen the miners and the mine  " owners. The men are not trying  "to compel mine oAvncrs to pay $3.50.  " The price of their labor is $3.50 for  "eight hours; if you Avant it, all well  " and good ; if you don't want it, leave it  " alone."          Wiikn the Canadian Pacific expected  to utili/.c tho flat Avcst of CottonAvood-  Sniith creek for yard purposes, noA'or a.  ���word Avas uttered by any of tlie com-,  pany's officials against the closing of  streets',* nay, it waa even hintedthat the  streets would have to be closed. It is-fill  different iioav, seeing that tho streets  have been closed iu the interest of another corporation.  AnvjCKs from the Coast arc that attorney-general Henderson will have a walkover Avhen he seeks re-election. The  people of Ncav Westminster have not  been represented in the cabinet since the  late John Robson made that town his  residence.  Tm<: threat made by a Slocan mine  manager that his mine Avould remain  eloped for a year unless tho miners accepted the $3 Avage shows tliat the mine  managers of tho Slocan care little for tho  interests of the country iu AvJiich they  live.    Tho miners are not making threats,,  Sir Charles Dilke, who like most of the  men in public life in Kugla.nd, is devoted  to active sport, believes in athletics being  kept; up even in advanced years, the less  violent forms of exorcise, of course, being  recommended for men who are no longer  young. In speaking of the change which  comes over a man with advancing years,  by which at fifty lie regards with utter-  able disgust;, a violent blow on the nose  which at eighteen he "rather liked to receive" in a. boxing bout,, sir Charles says  that it is not a/questioii of courage. lie  writes: ��  "My impression is that,- as a. rule, the  courage of resolution greatly increases  with age. Certainly, in my own case, I  was much more of a, coward when a boy  than 1 am now ; and believe that this is  a common, if not a.general or universal,  experience. Rut as a, boy, Avhile I liked  to hit my companions terrific blows upon  the leg or the funny bone of the arm  with a single-stick, I did not at all mind  being myself hit in the same way. I do  now."  There are many active sports for middle-aged men Avhich do not involve the  giving or taking of heavy blows or compel violent exertion, aud there can bo no  doubt that the public men in England  owe a great deal to them. After a heavy  siege of politics, or of business, good outdoor exercise takes a man out of himself  and causes him to cease to trouble others  or to be troubled by tlie vexations of his  working life. Mr. Gladstone's tree-chopping, and Mr. Balfour's golf are Avell  known examples of the physical exercise  which English public men make a practice of keeping up, with the best of results to themselves. Lacrosse as it is  played in Canada is an active sport that  does not involve tlie giving or taking of  heavy bloAvs, and in time it Avill become  a popular outdoor sport for aged politicians.

At Laniartiue's I'tmciul in Paris tlie  crowd took out general Lafayette's  horses, ;is the famous soldier was returning home from the service, and drew his  carriage to his hotel with many evidences  of enthusiastic love and admiration.  The scene was;it stirring one, and a friend,  in referring to it some weeks afterward,  said : "You must have been very much  'pleased." Lafayette looked at him for a  moment in silence, and then said, witli a  whimsical smile : "Yes, I was very much  pleased���very much pleased, indeed.  But J never saw anything more of my  horses, my dear friend!"  Governor Roosevelt attended the recent commencement at Cornell, and while  there was entertained at one of the college fraternity houses. When he was  about to leave, one of his staff said to  him, "Governor, the boys have an excellent library in the house, aiid I think they  would appreciate its enlargement by a  copy of your 'Rough Riders'," "Teddy,"  in an outburst of good-fellowship, exclaimed : "All right, boys, I'll be glad'to  send you a copy with my compliments;  the.'book.would be a very small return  indeed for your hospitality." Whereupon one of the boys replied, excitedly:  "That's so, governor; I've read it."  ��?$Stftift^  ^R^^; Jb?i^'�� .X^-i8=" ^i^����o'l;i',il ='��'�� ��f"Sv: 'twill  '"Ct^nJ-i'i|,e% Trim. so'i:w|il]/t|4lb -yo'i^kelep.' lil#  "jatiojheryeai:; " And he" serves: yon iii such  - ��.a y&V;-i]>aj& l&v .set'tire^ "&t$|"'a'tto$ller.

Had Dr. Patton and the Presbytery of  Chicago been there, they would have  quietly turned their backs, solemnly  divided their coat-tails, and warmed  themselves."  Harry H. Porter, a Chicago drummer,  was standing at Broadway and.Thirty-  Fourth street the other night, when he  noticed two fellows carrying on ail animated discussion. Finally they each took  out a roll of greenbacks and deposited  several of them with a bystander, to all  appearances a total stranger to them.  The taller of the two then approached  Porter and said: "I,just bet my friend  over there twenty dollars that I could  borrow a five-dollar bill from you. You  give me the bill���of course we couldn't  runaway if we wanted to���and I'll collect the Wei lty dollars and give you ten  dollars of it. You see, there can't be any  'con' game about this. I just Avant to  give my friend a lesson. He is eternally  wanting to bet." Realizing that there  was no possibility for the pair to escape,  Porter gave ihe fellow a five-dollar bill.  He took it. with a chuckle, walked over  to the stakeholder, returned and handed  Porter a ten-dollar bill. The drummer  pocketed the note and began to chuckle a  little himself. After a while he went  back to his hotel, and in Ins exurberance,  invited the bar-tender, to have a drink.  He paid for it with the ten-dollar note,  and told the cashier the whole story.  ���'What do you think about that for easy,"  hurt did  not strengthen  the home team  very much.  Our short stop, Fitch, was undoubtedly  the premier player of both teams.  Fitch at short stop and Sullivan at second base are a hard combination to go  against. They move like scared cits and  play ball all the time.  Fred Russell at first seemed to be off  his feed. He was also off his base at  critical moments.  it was considerable of a pitcher's game  and the atmosphere of tlie ball ground is  all shattered to fragments where the  heavy hitters knocked holes in it.  Rockenlield, Nelson's pitcher, is a foxy  lad. He struck out tho weak men and  sent the heavy hitters to bases on balls.  Nelson's first baseman seemed to have  a gunnysuek mitt. He got everything  that came his way.  It might be a good thing to let our  catcher have a talk with the umpire before the next game is called. It may  keep several men from stealing liases  while he holds the'ball and argues.  Fleming'pitched a good game,'if he did  make a.'wild throw or two. Very few of  the hits made off of him Avent outside of  the diamond.  The lioine boys played an uphill game  from the. start and were stronger at the  finish than when they started in.  Roekenfield, who pitched for-Nelson,  has decided to stay here and'.. will play  with the .GrandForks"team in the fuutre.  He and Fleming should prove a hard  pitching combination, a leftfand a right.  The umpiring Avas "about as bad, as it  could well be, but;it: had one redeeming  feature���the "raAv" decisions Avere pretty  evenly divided, neither side getting the  :worst of it in that line.
