Tlie Property is Said to be a Valuable
Ono and Only Needs to be Worked
With   Modern   Machinery.
11 is rumored that a deal is about
to be closed between an English
company and tho Venus Gold Mining Company for tlie sale of the
Venus property on Morning mountain. When the ball-roller mill at
the property was found to be a
failure List fall, the directors of the
corapauy held a meeting at Toronto,
and it was decided rather than to
go to the expense of
another mill, that
should be sold if a
be found. Tho property was a
once placed on the market in a
quiet way, and now ifc is said that
the deal is about to be closed.
Looking forward to the salo, the
present company has not continued
the development overly fast. When
the mill was shut down the force
that ,was at work was reduced to
ten men. Since then a further
reduction has been made, and now
only four men are at work. The
engineer representing the new company, and who is ?to report on the
property, is expected" to arrive in
Nelson tomorrow or next day. He
will visit the property and make
his report immediately.
The deal will be a good-sized oiie,
and it is said that, the new company Js   backed, np'  by'a   large
',' amount of capital aud when once
tiie property is ^turned over its
development will be carried on with
. great activitjr. The only requirements to'make the properfcy^among
the best producers' of -this district
is a modern stamp mill. The other'
.facilities _-are^ already, installed in.
connection-* Wlth-the' milKthat- wftsr
~ "erected'at the property Jast year.
The history of the property is an
interesting one. It was staked
several" -years ago by, Robert
■Reddle who', after,a short time, did
ihis assessment work in the form of
• open'cuts on the surface." Alone
'.time-he. was   unable   to   pay his
• assessment dues and in order to
raise the money offered. a quarter
.interest 'for sale. The property
ithen.was thought ,to be of little
■value and he could not, get $5 for
"the quarter interest. The original
•owners were Frank Fletcher, Robert
Heddle and and John Philips.
About two years "ago the  property was bonded   by the  Venus
'Gold Mining Company, whieh since
Yithat time   did extensive develop-
vment woik.   When  the   property
went   under   the   control   of   this
.'   company only surface   work   had
been      done.    At      the     present
time   over   2000   feet   of tunneling,   shafting   and   drifting    has
been   completed _ The    workings,
are now in about 700 feet.   Four
tunnels with ore in' all have been
run to a considerable depth.   The
-present  work   is   being   expended
mpon the. running of a fifth tunnel
tto tap tho vein _bo,ut the 400-foot
•level.  -Tt is expected $W& the lead
■will be encountered shortly;,   jit is
'estimated that about 16,000 *fc.ops of
'ore are already blocked .©v**..   Although the value of the surface ore
* was not high, the assays from samples of ore taken from a greater
• depth gave high returns, some ex-
■ ceeding $40. • The mill returns, although much of the precious metal
•was lost, were on an average about
! $15. Ifc is thought that with the
_ working of a stamp mill much bet-
'ter returns would be obtained. The
-property""- is valued at about
The resuming of work on the
••property by a strong company
would be of great benefit to Nelson.
Work to be Resumed.
Afc a meeting of the shareholders
of   the company   that- owns the
,_. Albion mine, - near Ainsworth, ifc
was voted to resume, work and a
voluntary assessment was levied on
the stock. Work has been suspended'
on the Albion for two years. It is
situated near the Highlander, as its
ore is of the same character. About;
■.',$80,0.66, have been expended on the
property, and every thing at the
mine is in excellent shape for the
resumption of work.   The directors
- elected at the meeting are:   W. A.
Aldriph, president;   G.  W. Roche,
, -rice president j    Mrs.   M.    Logan, •
secretary and* treasurer ; AV. S. Mc-
Crae, W. G. Merry weather, Sig
llanauer and G. A. Benson, all of
Roads Getting iu Bad Shape.
The warm weather' of tho last
three days is knocking the bottom
out of the roads. The shipments
from the Molly Gibson mine havo
been suspended, as the road has become unfit for traffic. The Silver
Hill road up Crawford - creek is also
in bad shape, two of the bridges
having been knocked out by slides.
The company has about 96 tons at
the landing, and this is all that can
be shipped to the smelter until
colder weather prevails. The company expected to_ ship about 50
tons per day. The Molly Gibson
was shipping about a car a day.
Apparatus Did Not' Work Well.
For some days past dodgers, ex-
circulated, announced a
*/a<»*,"'ivw-:ij_'s* °^ a cei'tain compound
^^^^^"'Swisher, which was de-
sciYtfiitf/as "undoubtedly the most
valuable invention of the day."
The public were cordially invited to'
witness the wonders of the extinguisher, but the mayor, alder-
meu. merchants, mill managers and
fire underwriters were specially invited. ' At the "appointed hour
yesterday afternoon upwards of
one hundred persons had assembled
at the foot of Stanley street, where
all preparations had .been" made to
demonstrate that the modern fire
brigade is no longer a necessity if
.only a few tubes of. compound extinguisher be on hand. The crowd
was discussing the probability' of
seeing'the whole fire fighting apparatus, including the chief and his
staff, - dispensed with, and an .express wagon with a sack or two Yof
patent fire extinguisher and a a few
shovels 'substituted, therefor, when
the gentlemah'who was.to give the
test stepped forward^with a" ready-
ladies-and-gentlenien _ 'expression,*
^atid/y.appliedT jt^ match*"---toY tlie'"
oil-saturated- 'material, on" a.
couple -of empty c boxes. Up'
shot the flames, and down came the
compound fire extinguisher through
a tube. Before there was time to
doubt the efficiency of the firsjfc application another tube of the stuff
was applied, but without the desired effect, and the volume of flame'
was evidently gaining.. Then came
the-third and last tube, but still no
perceptible .diminution in flame.
The derisive laughter of those present pronounced the public test a
failure, aud the disappointed manipulator of -'the most valuable invention of-the day" declared that if
he only had enough of the comoound
he could put out* the fire. A few
boys, in the crowd suggested "Try a
snow-ball?' The suggestion was
adopted, and amid a shower of such
missies, the fire was extinguished.
The public test of tho dry compound fire extinguisher cannot be
pronounced a success, and is not,
likely to interfere with the council
carrying out the contemplated improvements in the fire department.
The Venezuela Trouble.
Washington, January 17.—The
only advice over night from Venezuela was a' short message from Mr.
Loomis, indicating that the revolt;1
which harl broken out in the barracks at Caracas had been suppressed last Monday. The navy
department was unable to forward
its instructions to commanders last
evening, but the message went out
early this morning," and by this
time the Scorpion probably is starting from La Guaya for Guanaco.
Guanaco lies about 75 miles up the
San Juan river, in northern Venezuela, and is the point of shipment
for the asphalt of the Bermuda
company, which is brought by the
Guanaco railway from the big lake.
Federal Elections in Australia.
, Stdnet, New South Wales,
January 17. — Edward Barton,
premier of the Australian commonwealth, began the campaign at
Maitland this evening with a large
public meeting, at which several of
the ministers wore present. His
speech disclosed the policy of the
federal ministry. He said the
federal elections would be held at
the earliest possible date. In his
opinion parliament could not be
successfully carried on . either at'
Melbourne or Sydney, as its deliberations ought to be removed
from surrounding provincial \x\-
Successful Working of a Tram-
way Erected by a Nelaon
Manufacturer.  -
James   W.   MeLeod, who   is en-
gagecl in operating   the tramway
at the Ymir mine, was in the city
yesterday.     He reports   that   the
property is showing up well and a
large amount of ore'is being taken
out.   About 100 men are engaged
at the property, which is a comparatively small force for the amount* of
ore that is being handled.    The ore
removed from the workings averages from 200 to 250 tons_v per day.
The work   done   is   principally in'
Nos. 1, 2 aud 3 levels.   The vein on
which stoping is being, done runs
from 20 to 50 feet in width.    The
ore is low-grade, a fair percentage
of the values b'eing saved on the
plates, the   remainder -"in the concentrates.    The ore. taken from the
lowest level, about 600 feet, gives a
larger amount'of concentrates than
that taken from the higher levels.
*   At   present a   "shaft   is ' being
sunk from No. 3 level to intersect
,the'tunhel'that is being driven-to
tap'the t bin at No. 10 level.    *It is
down about 300 feet, and between
_ 400 and 500 feet remains to be done.
The work"on'the tunnel, which is
being run from the level of the mill
■to strike the vein at No.. 10 level, is
to be pushed rapidly by. contract.
•The tunnel has been advanced about
700 feet;"" but the distance "from the
opening to the vein is somewhat
over 2000 feet.   It is expected that
-the work will be completed during
the latter part Of next fall.        *»" '" •

mill is running day and night.   A
large cyanide   plant, is being installed and will be completed at an
early date in the spring.     This. is

as-Water-Was Scarce.
Phoenix, January
to The Tribune.]—A
after 8 o'clock this eyening ' a" fire
broke out in.a.large dry goods store
on Dominion avenue, which threatened the whole Jojver end" of the
town-for an hour, -'but was finally
stopped after "doing damage to the
extent of nearly- .$.30,000. The first
general iutimatioii of a bad fire was
when three long whistles, from the"
compressor at .the' Brooklyn mine
iwere.heard all over' town. The fire
had burst put o"f. the second -story
of JM.^cBean .«S^Co/^,dry. 'goods,,
store.' ."it^quicKly ""spreatl' to 'tiie
Imperial hotel building, adjoining
on the north- side of Dominion
avenue, and thence.-to,the building
of the Phoenix News Company,
all being two story -structures.
The fire burned very fiercely,
and threatened a long row of two
and three .story buildings on,the
opposite side of the avenue. Giant
powder was used -three or four
times with good effect. -*; There was
a scarcity of water, but several fire
engines could hardly have' stopped
the flames.
■ Mayor Rumberger and chief-of
police McMillan, assisted- by a large
number of citizens, did yeoman
service iu saving goods and tearing
down structures to stop the spread
of the flames. Much damage was
done through broken glass all over

At its last meeting a resolution  was passed that in no way concerns  the   business * interests of Nelson,  aud it was-passed at the suggestion  of men who want to score a point  in  politics:   In every province in  the Dominion, the supreme court  has oneiplaceat whicli' its sessions  are held.. In the province of Ontario,  where.there^is surely as much I1L1-  gation as ther8.is.in British Columbia, the supreme court sits at To-  ^ronto.^-Bufc^in-BritishTeolumbiaraT  sitting   is   held, at   Victoria    one  month and at Vancouver the next  month, yet these two places are not  more than eighty miles apart.    If  this'is-a statement of fact, in what  way are litigants saved expense because of the supreme court being  required to be constantly on the  move between Victoria' and Vancouver.   There might be reason in  such an argument, were.the sittings  of the supreme court held at 'Nelson and Vancouver, two places 406  miles apart.'   Then litigants would  possibly   save   something   in   the  way   of     traveling    expenses   of  their lawyers.   The judges of the  supreme   court;   are   unanimously  against being- required   to sit   at  two places;   they claim that it is  not in tlie public interest to be required  to do so;   but, then,Ywhat  Hignifies the opinions of such men:  as chief justice McColl and Mr.-jiis-  fice   Walkem    and     Mi\ ;jiistice  Drake .and Mr. justice. Try ing ai'id  Mr. justice Martin.when they conflict   with   the   opinions --of   the  learned;gentlemen who manipulate  political questions at meetings oi-  the Nelson Board of Trade.  that'eity, but the undertaking was  a fciilure. It" ,is now reported that  a .company has been organized in  New"york,-and thai} a smelter to  treat zinc ores-will-be erected near  Helena* Montana. The plant" will  be the practical realization of the  purpose to which many experiments,  costing large"sums of money, have  been aimed, and will give value to  millions of tons of ores carrying  zinc associated with gold and silver.  which have been developed in tlie.  mines of the'Northwest or lie on  the dumps', but have been -condemned as worthless.  Much Of the pre, especially the  silver-lead, ore, of this country  carries zinc in such a percentage as  to cause considerable loss in the  way of high .treatment charges;  Some time ago a company was'-  organized inManchester, England,  to handle zinc ore at works near  The slump in the Whittaker  Wright companies shares amounted  to over $36,660,606, yet not a man  lias been laid off at a mine in British Columbia in consequence of tiie  slump. This goes to show that the  mines in this province owned by  the Whittaker Wright companies  are being worked on their merits as  mines and not as stock-jobbing  ventures.   It was hoped that the board of  trade would get out of the rut that  it has got into.; but ifc is a hopeless  ease now. The Nelson Evening  Miner has commenced praising the  organization, and that settle^it.   ...  If the news-that, comes ��� from-������St.'  Paul is true, the Canadian Pacific is'  lip against a combination that will  make president Shaughuessy show  his mettle. He has the reputation  of being a shrewd manipulator, but  ho has theI filirewdest men in'America against him'. It seems to be the  .Canadian/Pacific against.the world,  or at least all that part of the  world north of the Northern  "Pacific. ; / ���    '  The Public Gambling Evil.  Spokesman-Review.  There aro.-worse phases of the  gambling ovil than the open resorts  on Howard street. Publicity strips  these places of much that is demoralizing. If your boy or your em-  jiloyee frequents the open resorts,  the knowledge will come to you,  and you can take steps, to correct  him.' Not so with the private club  and tlie hidden games. He may  gamble there and conceal the truth.  Before you know it, the pernicious  passion may have seized liis being.  Vice that is flagrant, open and repulsive is "less- dangerous than vice  tliat is gilded and half-way repecta-  ble.. To him who reads aright, the  public gambling Hall' presents an  open warning. Ifc flaunts no false  colors. It offers-no��� pretense to respectability. Players go there without solicitation, for the code of the  "square" gambler will not allow him  to invite men to play afr.his games.  Ask him his own opinion of gambling and he will confess that it  a had thing, will lament the  circumstances "which threw him into the business, and will advise you  to abstain. If in a confidential  mood, he will point to tlie human  wrecks around him, and cite them  as examples of what the gambling  habifc will do to society's weaklings.  In nine case out of ton men do not  start at the public gambling halls.  The habit is contracted under more  respectable environment���in private clubs, at social gatherings, in  the back rooms of certain cigar  stores, or in tlio card rooms ot  hotels. Under such surroundings  it is far more insidious than when  ifc stalks into the open. These  statements are not advanced in a  fault finding spirit. The purpose is  analytical, or even if reform is to  be effective, it must start with  comprehension of the facts. Ifc will  serve no beneficial purpose for vice  that is garbed in fine clothes to rail  out'against its brother in rags of  fustian. True" reform, must come  with a moral awakening all along  the lino. Ifc miiht begin "'with the  upper strata and work downward.  Arrayed Against the Canadian Paicific.  A dispatch dated at Sfc. Paul on  the _flth gives out rather startling  information. Ifc is iu effect, that  "Jim" Hill of the Great Northern  has entered a combine to clown the  Canadian Pacific. The dispatch  reads: "Today J. J. Hill came into  possession-of one-third of the capital.stock of the Crow's Nest (British  Columbia) coal mines, amounting to  $2,500,066. He also entered into an  agreement .with other railroad com-  panieswho have built and1 are to  build' to parallel the Canadian  Pacific. , Hill also agrees to build .a  spur line from the Great Northern  to the Crow's Nest coal- mines and  guarantees to purchase G600 tons of  coal ijer ctay. The whole scheme  contemplates a gigantic struggle  with .the Canadian Pacific, for  which J. J. Hill receives valuable  government concessions."  Machine Drill that is a Wonder.  An", inventive genius at. Colfax,  Washington, has- invented, a machine drill that is said to do as  much: work as eight men. The machine-is operated by one man, who  simply turns a crank." which revolves-a wheel to whicli is attached  four 4-pound^liairimers, which strike  the drill with terrific force, each  blow being harder than that struck  by a/man. - By'turning the crank  at armoderate, 210 blows are struck  by the hammers- in one minute.  This is-said to be the work of eight  able'bddied -men. A number of  mining men who have seen the machine work say it will revolutionize  mining and greatly, .lessen the present cost of drilling",-and will make  mauy-lo.w^grade-properties-profit--  able-mines. 'The machine is made  entirely of iron .and weighs but 125  pounds., . ,  CROW & MORRIS  Baker Street, Nelson.  WHOLESALE AND  RETATL ....

Ono of the tilings to be regretted  is that so little oC tho profits of the  yield of our mines is reinvested or  spent in any way iu the country in  which the mines' are situate. Of  the millions that have been paid in  dividends from ore mined in  Kootenay, it is safe to say that less  than a quarter of a million has been  spent in any of the towns of  Kootenay in tho way of investments, lint ono mino owner who  has drawn dividends, as far as oan  be' learned by Titr Tribunr, has  ever invested a dollar of his income  in upbuilding tho town at whieh  his monoy Avas made. That one  man is .Tohu M. Harris of the Reco  mine at Sandon. . Tf there are any  others, Tjir Tribune will bo only  too pleased to print their names in  capital letters. Hut, it appears,  that this is just what happens in  ' other mining districts; as the following clipped from tho 35T.esto.1,11  Mining .World of>Rntte, Montana,  goes to show :  "What woeful lack of'.judgment  and foresight nearly every old time  eiti/.en.of Butte, used in early days  gone by, in -regard to purchasing,  stook in the liutte copper companies when they first offered. As a  consequence,"outside - of the' Clark;  and Heinze. properties, - there is  hardly a single dollar com ing v to  Butte as dividends from'tlie Butte  copper mines to the original holders  of shares. It is appaling when one  stops to consider-the question  seri-  'ously. No less than $100,000,000  have been paid in dividends -by  these Butte mines during the ,past  ten or fifteetryearK, attd"f-1mrdl J"** a  dollar*of it came to Butte. When  we say, "hardly a dollar of it ,came  to Butte," we put it mild, for, if we  are not misinformed, there is not a  single owner of any of these" stocks  in Butte'today that purchased them  when first offered on the market. "  "Conditions existing here today,  in Butte are not much changed. No  matter how meritorious a proposition may be, it does not receive the  warm support and assistance _ it  naturally deserves from those who  are in a position financially to help  it out and put it on o paying basis.  There is an exception to this, however.

But a local one, never.  "As a consequence look at the  despicable contlition of tho local  mining.-stock market! There .are"  but two or three stock brokers in  Butte, where, as .a matter of fact,  there ought to bo a hundred. There  is not sufficient interest taken in  Butte among those able to carry  out such a project, to organize a  mining stock exchange. This is not  only the condition of affairs today,  but never in the history of Butte  have they been .different'. What a  woeful condition of affairs in the  greatest mining camp on earth,  where the payroll amountsto. fully  $20,000,000 a..year, and its, mines  earn annually many times, that  amount. On the .other hand, observe what is fast building-up a,  rival to Butte. In Cripple.' Creek,  over ninety cents of every dollar,  produced during last year from its  mines belong to the people of the  immediate vicinity.

Chicago Chronicle.  The commentators upon the life  of Philip D. Armour have generally  failed to discern what was really  the distinguishing characteristic  of the man. They have devoted  themselves largely to discussion of  his purely business successes and to  admiration of the manner in which  he overcame early obstacles and  accumulated a large fortune. The  truth is, of course, that ninety-nine  in a hundred of the great fortunes  of the country have been built up  by men who overcame "similar���or  .greater ^difficulties. Tliereyjwas  nothing unique in Mr. Armour's  success. The qualities which enable men to acquire great wealth  are common to all millionaires. We  have to 'look beyond the mere  money-making faculty���or instinct  ���in order to, come at the man himself.- Each man has some one. tendency or characteristic more fully  developed than the majority of his  fellows.      ���������'.'  No man who worked faithfully  for him failed to secure his recognition���recognition not only material, but of that more valuable kind  ���the word of praise, sometimes  publicly, sometimes privately! bestowed. It was thisvfact which  made situations with' the Armour  house cherished by those who held  theni.and coveted by' those who  aspired'to' them. The man who  worked .for- PhilipAivraoiu'. knew  that he was accounted something  ���.more than a mere cog in a vast  machine. YYtleknew^hat the eye of  the general was upon'hiiii'j and that  faithful service would be recognized  in general orders, i JIhdt was why  Philip Armour was. so well served.  And in that lies/.idsclaim: to distinction above his fellows. He was  not merely a great money-inaker,  buthe was-a captain and/leader of  meu because of Yhis consideration  for their pride, their ambition and  their self-respect.   .    .  Jnthe case of Mr. Aviuour it -may'  fairly be. said that he was distinguished from the majority of the  multi-millionaire in his attitude toward the men whom he employed.  Hewas actively and personally interested in the men who worked for  hire*. It was not alone that he paid  living wages���most men: do that���  but he continually testified his sense  of obligation to his employees. He  recognized what some employers do  nofc^r-that while the employer hen-  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay, Inspector.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Bakor Street)  J. M. LAY. Manama...  efits   the   employee, the employee  likewise benefits the employer.  "A man may be the besti general  in the world," he is quoted- as saying, "but he will fare badly without  able lieutenants, and he will fail altogether unless he has the loyalty  of the privates in the ranks." This  is putting the case exactly. Mr.  Armour exemplified his theory by-  the consideration which he extend  ed to the lieutenants and privates  in the grand army of his employees,  He-^Was Startled.  They are telling'a- good story in  Edinburgh just now atv the expense  of a certain Yeomanry officer, an  immensely popular man, whose one  weakness is his belief that the making of a" great general was lost-when  he went into the business of- keeping a shop, says a London newspaper. The militia regiment garrisoning Edinburgh castle, in the  absence of the Gordon Highlanders,  contains some choice spirits,- and  the other day, after, .a laying together of heads among the officers,  a stripling rushed into the establishment of tho officer in question.  "Oh, colonel ," he called,  "have you - heard the news ? You  are ordered _,off for active service1  immediately!"  The colonel started to his feet.  "Good heavens I" he ,cried; "has  Kitchenei been killed already?"  TORONTO   STOCK   EXCHANGE.  <*���  THUItSDAV'S  QUOTATION'S. ���  stock.                                     Asked.  Bid,  B. C.
