"Read Before a Scientific Body.
-i—At the recent meeting of the Canadian
Mining Institute at Rossland, which took
place a day or two before that bodymado
itself ridiculous at Nelson, Hector McRae read a paper on "Scientific Experts."
It is as follows:
In my early years my parents, who
were strict Presbyterians, taught me to
shun the mining: expert, and to avoid as
a pestilence the man who made a study
of rocks and other low-down things for a
living. Shortly after leaving homo, however, it was my misfortune to run across
ono Holstein Loken, whom I looked upon
as the greatest geologist of the ago. I
knew he was a geologist because he always signed that way. This Holstein
was not a grasping geologist, for all ho
charged me was $2 per day and board,
and $1.50 for his "rapport," as he termed
it. In the end lie came high, and I had
to turn him down. I saw, shortly after,
a living star in the form of Henry G.
-Vennon, and folloAved his advice till he
published an almanack, which disturbed
the equanimity of all the farmers in fourteen townships. As far as doctors Sel-
"wyn and Hoffman Avere concerned, they
had my deepest sympathy, as they failed
to get desired results from tons of rocks
I had brought them from time to time.
A few years ago I came out AArest, and
found there Avere others, and for the
benefit of those Avho may be in.the dark
tonight, I have prepared' roughly a paper
on some of the "Men of Today and Yesterday," AvhoinT haAre either met or
heard of iu'my travels.
I used to knoAv Henry Avell. Worked
with him on the Drum Lummond. Had
no technical training, but just raised
from the pick and shovel. Had lots of
savvy, and knew how to work the Englishmen. Discovered big copper deposits
a year or two ago in the Yukon, about
2850 miles from transportation. Guess
he's Avell fixed and'don't care ' Avhether'
the school of mines keeps or not.
Ham, Ham Smith, a has-been—-He turned down the Jim Crow group in '79. She
made amine under Dutch Mike's management just the same. Got a good job
from the Rothschilds looking OA^er the
Rand. Sent his pard Perkins instead,
and turned cIoavii the Avhole proposition
for less than a million. The blow killed
Rothschild. Smith is now living on a
farm in Ncav Hampshire; is consulting
engineer to a creamery company, aud
Perkins is foreman in a pickle factory at
Battersea.       ■■■■:' a -
block of the stock. Gets more for his
Avritings .ban Kipling. Charges $500 a
word for saying "no good."
W. A. Carlylc—Ho didn't graduate
from the Comstock, or ever played a
nickle-in-the-slot machine. Worked for
two years on mines in Colorado. Took a
rest in a McGill college chair for a like
term, and learned his 13. A. C's.in Ross-
hind. Has just accepted a position as
manager of 1">,000 Spaniards iu the Rio
Tin to at $2 apiece.
John Hardman— Hails from Nova.
.Scotia, avIlores they've coals to burn.
Made money there in mining because
there Avas nothing in the rocks but gold,
and gold av.-is always legal tender in Halifax. Could have .made more money, in
Spokaneing, but didn't have the pleasure
of O. G. Labaree's 'acquaintance. Came
here three, years ago and didn't like the
camp because the ledge reaction Avas too
still. Retains his. American citizenship
and draws a big salary in English sovereigns, as much as McKinley gets, and has
silk underwear to burn.
Moral—Have nothing to do Avith mines
or mining. However, if you must invest,
employ a first-class Spokane mining
broker and put your money in real estate.

Great Britain arid The TransvaaL
London, September 23.—Never at any
stage of the  Transvaal  crisis  has the issue of peace or Avar rested so entirely in
the   hands   of   president   Kruger.    The
longer he delays  his  decision the better
are tho chances for peace.    He knows to
Avhat extent  he  can rely ou sections of
South Africa to uphold him.    Ho realizes
that the British  Avill, if possible, avoid a
conflict until the last transport lands her
men, and he is  too Avily a leader not to
know the military advantages that comes
to the aggressor.    His appeals to the foreign poAvers to intervene haAre, apparently, been hopeless; but his efforts to drag
in  the   Orange   Free   State   haAre been
successful.  If he honestly intends to defy
Great Britain, he Will ncA'erhave abetter
opportunity than at present.    It is  such
reasons which are uppermost in the minds
of    the   thinking    British,   and   Avliieh
prompts them to believe that before next
Aveek's  cabinet  meeting, the Boers  Avill
have  passed over Natal border.    If they
have not, tliere Avill be much ground for
believing president   Kruger  inteuds  an
ultimate back cIoavii, though Avhether he is
strong    enough    to   carry    his    people
Avith him in such <a course is open to grave
The recen.t cabinet council merely verified the logical supposition that Great
Britain will deliver no hostile ultimatiim
until she is iu a jiosition to back it lip.
The recent negotiations .upon the part of
the colonial secretary have not tended to
appease the peace party in England. The
Speaker declares, " to fight over a question of etymology is naturally impossible," Avhich means that suzerainty is
the'base of the dispute.
Sir Edward Clarke, Q. G, the former
solicitor-general, Avrites to Tlie Times,
that he sees no casus belli, and hopes parliament will be summoned that the Avhole
affair may be explained to him an I other

The Town Forging Ahead.
Duncan Cita', September 21.—Duncan
City is beginning to go ahead again. It
began Avith a flourish this spring, but suffered a slight relapse. HoAA'ever,. now
that the railroads in here aro an assured
factor at once, prosperity is returning
and indications point to .a A'ery liA-oly season. The wet summer has held back mining and prospecting, Avhich uoav, hoAveA'or,
is e|uite active. Prospectors are doing assessment and deArelopment Avork on many
properties on-Hamill, Glazier and Bowser
creeks .and in the upper Duncan country,
all of AA-hieh are showing up Avell antl
promise to dcArelop into big mines.
Tho Lodestar  Gold Mining & DeArelopment Company, an English company, capitalized for $1,000,000, is operating a group
of five claims situated on Lodestar mountain, Hall creek, near Duncan ri\rer.  This
company is employing at present a force
of from twelve to fifteen men ou development.    The steamer Marion is running in
connection Avith their Avork, carrying in
supplies for themselves and freighting for
others, from Duncan City to Hall's Landing, about twenty-five miles. The steamer-
is making the trip three times a Aveek.
The properties of the. Lodestar company
are cleA'eloping   well.    They  haAre  large
leads, ore from which gives assays of from
137 to 1107  ounces  silver, $3.50 to $13.00
iu gold, 21 -per  cent copper,  aud 40.per
cent lead.    J. Chesshyre Blythe of Liverpool, president of the company, F. Cou-
royt,  vice-president,  and J.  D. Carlyle,
secretary-treasurer,     of     Kaslo,  passed
through here  Avith  samples from a new
strike made a fe\v days ago, over which
they are very enthusiastic.
The company is. about to build a neAAr
steel steamer, about seventy-five feet in
length, Avhich is to run through from
either Nelson or Kaslo. It is said that
the boat .-will be running next year.
The Bannockburn propei-ty, a group
of claims adjoining the Lodestar, are
Avorking and proving up a big mine;
Mr.  Anderson,  manager  of  the  Gold
, Hills Company, is working  small forces

Pacific division of tho Canadian Pacific,
AV.as in Nelson yesterday looking over
the company's rolling stock. On its
Kootenay branches tho Canadian Pacific
has now fifteen locomotives, and the
business is such that they are in use all
the time.
The additional AA-ork to be performed
on the Columbia <fc Kootenay branch, for
Avhich the Canadian Pacific recently made
an appropriation of $30,000, has not yet
been laid out. Upon the. manner in
which it is laid out Avill altogether depend the number of men Avhich Messrs.
Tierney .& Company will employ. The
contractors say that in any event there
will be work for fifty men and possibly
seA-enty. It Avill be Avell on into Avinter
before the work is completed.    "
Yesterday tho Nelson & Fort Sheppard
railway had men and teams transferring
freight from their oavu to Canadian Pacific railway cars at the eastern limit of
the city. The distance betAN'een the two
railway lines is only about 200 .yards,
and if a connection Avere made a considerable saving Avould be effected in the
handling of freight. To connect the tAvo
lines Avould probably cost $500. It is
costing more than this several times OA'er
to transfer freight each year.
Victoria Politicians Oppose It.
Special to tho Tribune..
VifJTORiA, September 23.—There is little support here for the movement, AA'hich
is to be given a new impetus at tlie Con-
seiwative convention in NeAV Westminster next month, of introducing a'thor-
onghbred party strain into provincial
politics. Last year the convention formally decided that from and after the
next general election provincial contests
should be conducted on Dominion party
lines, but the decision has never been
acceptable to Conseiwatives prominent
in provincial affairs here, and if Victoria
is represented at the convention an interesting contest Avill take place on.this
point. While Vancouver SAvarms Avitli

A Shortage in Gold.
London, September 2-3.—The Statist,
commenting on the position brought
; about by the Transvaal crisis and the
NeAV York stringency, says: "The competition for gold during the next. Aveek
. promises to be great. No gold is available in Australia for export, and Ave may
have to send gold to the Cape, instead of
receiA'ing it, and also meet the demand
for Egypt, to pay for cotton, as Avell as
South America. The usual autumnal de^
crease Avill further advance the official
minimum. It appears nearly probable
that our own government will require to
'raise a considerable loan, probably by the
issue of treasury bills. Such a loan AArould
of course give the Bank of England control of the market, enabling it to keep its
and about ten shillings a share on a big I rate effective, Avhatcver it might be."
start will be maele as soon as the ministers have leisure for a deliberate revieAv
of the Avhole situation. Meanwhile, the
military forces in South Africa AviII be
increased by 10,000 or 20,000 men. The
Transvaal government Avill be courteously informed by the ministers that it
is time for reconsidering the Subject of
England's relations with the Dutch republic, and the door will; not be closed:
against diplomacy if President Kruger
Ayishes to make fresh overtures.
The ministers are determined not to
provoke a declaration of war and especially Avhen they are not in readiness for
hostilities, but they will not modify the
terms of the last communication sent out
by Mr. Chamberlain. The great stir in
military preparations prevailing at army
headquarters today betokens the despatch
of large reinforcements to the Cape and
Natal. The prolonged conference betAveen
Mr. Balfour and lord Rothschild indicates that the spending departments are
short of money and that parliament may
be summoned in October unless arrangements can be made Avith the great
financiers for bridging OA'er the crisis.
The drift of affairs this Aveek has been
strongly in ihe direction of Avar although
no one in authority is yet AviUing to admit that the last Avord has been . said in
favor of peace.

The Noonday mine, near town, is still

Lardo, September 21.—-While blasting
■ai-jd clearing right-of-way almost immediately within the tovvn limits of
Lardo, on the Canndiltn Pacific a liu-ge
body of galena Ore A\"as uncovt-rod, but
was thought .to be of no value being considered prineipaHy zinc. Messrs. Kelley
and Shupe staked the ground, early Monday morning, and have found a lead of
more than a foot of clear high-grade
galena. The ground is so situated tliat
they can develop the find at a small outlay. From the surface shoAving, they
seem ..to have a property equal to; some
of the best iu tile Slocan.

New Orleans Timcs-Dcmocraf.  "Tliere goes it man," .said i\ Canal street  philosopher,''-who has made a i'aihirc of  life in spite of exceptional c(ini|)inent for  success. He is honest, a liable, highly  educated and industrious as a beaver,  lie hits no bad habits, and J* couldn't name  a man in New Orleans wlio possesses a  kindlier disposition, yet lie is continually  out of it job and is studiously avoided by  everybody who knows him. The mysterious part of it i.�� that nobody can tell you  just why, and the poor fellow doesn't im  derstand it himself. He is beginning to  think that somebody lias worked <*i rabbit's foot on him, .but the secret is really  this : lie has a genius for the inopportune. By some malign freak of fate lie  always says and does the wrong thing at  tho wrong time. It is not lack of tact;  it is destiny. For example, 1 like liim,  but he never called on me in his life that  his visit wasn't highly unwelcome. lie  is morally certain to drop in just in time  to catch one doing something foolish or  discreditable, and you know how wc hate  the innocent chance witness of our follies.  He made a mortal enemy of colonel   because he happened to walk into liis  ollice while the old man was dying liis  moustache. He chanced on a certain  prominent lawyer smirking before a  mirror, rehearsing an impromptu after-  dinner speech, and tlie prominent lawyer.  got oven by knocking him out of a valuable contract. Those arc two cases out of  dozen's. He never gossips or tattles, but  the mere fact that he has seen things he  oughtn't to see and heard tilings lie  'oughtn't to hoar makes his very presence  embarrassing to .the,other fellows. It's  most unfortunate, and all fate. If lie  were introduced -to a man whose grandfather had been hanged he'd be absolutely certain to begin talking about rope inside of two minutes. As I .said before,  he has a genius for the inopportune. My  wife loathes him because her false frizzes  blow off on the street one day and landed on top of his umbrella. He had  nothing whatever to do with either the  frizzes or the elements, but now I can't  ask liim to my house. Terrible to bo under such a curse, isn't ib?"  FORTUNES    MADE    FROM ��� PATENTS.  One often hears of tlie enormous profits  made on patents. Many of them aro  known not to be fairy tales; some arc  well founded. Nearly everybody can  point to several cases of the sort in liis  personal experience. Talcs of enormous  wealth are usually regarded by readers  -as-myths,���but-a���Western-manufacturer  lias collected a number of specific instances wliich indicate that they are all  realities.  Hq says tliat a slight improvement in  straw-cutters yielded over $80,000 in  eight months. A lamp chimney spring  yielded over $iJ(),000 a year for several  years. A printing-ink invention sold for  $00,000. A machine for cleaning grain  gave $00,000 in net profits in fifteen  months. N. "W. Spaukling of San Francisco is credited with receiving $100,000  for liis invention of a saw-tooth. The  lead pencil rubber tip brought to tlie inventor over $100,000 profit. "Pigs in  clover" netted $100,000. The Grcely fan  brought tlie inventor $5000 a week. Tho  inventor of the little cylinder savings  bank got about $2000 ,a day for several  months. The return ball netted $50,000  a year.  A mere toy, a dancing "Jim Crow,"  made $75,000 a "year for its inventor.  The man who invented hooks on lace  shoes got over $300,000 a year iu royalty  for them. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been made by Demiison from  his shipping tags. The wooden shoe peg  yielded over $500,000. The roller skate  Drought twice as much. Boot and shoe  plates of metal cleared over $1,250,000.  Mrs. Pott's sad iron netted over $500,000.  Ellas Howe, inventor of tlie sewing  machine needle, received a princely  revenue of over $50,000 a year.  Cyrus H. McCormack, the inventor of  the harvesting machine, made more than  a million in the venture. Goodyear, who  first vulcanized rubber, obtained a very  large fortune from royalties. It is said '  tliat Isaac Merrit Singer borrowed $40 to  help perfect his first sewing machine, and  now one factory alone turns out over 30,-  000 nioc'ltines a week.   His net income  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on S^aguay, U. S., Atliq, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^or* District.  was over .$210,000 ji year for many years,  and for one year it was over $'J,0()0,000.  At his death he left an estate worth  $i:*,000,000.  The Duulap Pneumatic Tire Company  is an illustration of the mint of money  there is iu patents. It commenced with  a working capital of $112,500. It harh  been in operation but two years when it  was sold for $ 15,000,00(1 cash. The shareholders had then received in dividends  ���iiul premiums the sum of $:J,200,.*J75, and  by the terms of the sale received the  further sum of $1'1,437,500, giving a total  result of $17,0.'iS,O75. The purchasers  afterward resold to another company for  tlie sum of $25,000,000.  The Wcstinghouse air brake made $30,-  000,000 in profits and the Bell telephone  has paid $30,000,000 in dividends. It is  claimed that there are 150 patents paying more than $1,000,000 each annually,  and S50 more paying half that sum each  year. There tire thousands paying more  than $100,000 yearly. According to an  estimate by the commissioner of patents,  from three-fourths to seven-eights of the  entire manufacturing capital of the country of upwards of six billions is based upon patents.

Without exception,  they disapprove of- war, and tliey blame  Cireat Britain for badgering the Transvaal beyond endurance. The Liberal  press also blames the Transvaal for its  illogical stand in first sanctioning Great  Britain's attempt at interference in its  internal affairs and then rejecting such  attempts and making thereof a casus belli.  The National Zeitung doubts whether  ib is still possible to adjust things in  South Africa except by force of arms. A  foreign official said to a correspondent of  the Associated Press: "Of course it is  not to our interest to have England and  the'Transvaal go to war. That little  Boer nation will finally succumb and probably will be wiped out of existence. Ifc  is only too likely that this will diminish  our prestige iu South Africa  and  injure  FULL LINE OF  our no inconsiderable interest there, for  our trade with tho Boer states is increasing and is only next to that of England.  Still there is no occasion and no political  or material right for us to interfere, so  long as our undoubted rights are respected by the belligerents."  No Interesting News.  London, September 23.���Dreyfus and  Guerin htive practically passed out of the  public mind here, but echoes of the ease,  congratulations and otherwise of the  French government, appear in the English weeklies. Excepting these topics  and the Transvaal, there is a dearth of  interesting letters.
