"You had better shield your light with
your hand as I do, and mind you don't
eel the straw on fire, for with the draft
we are encountering we would have a bud
time fighting a blaze."
This cautionary remark was addressed
by one of as tough a looking group as
the imagination cm picture. There were
four in all, and as the conversation pass
ed they were beias: carried at a rapid
speed, not in one' of our handsomely up
bolstered tlectric cars, nor in the Pull
man luxury of steni railway travel, but
the individuals alluded to were seated on
the straw covered fljors of flat cars, and
were being propelled at what seemed to
be a furious rate into subterranean re
gions. The remark quoted was made by
Robert Lee, superintendent of the Cable
mines. His companions. Superintendent
Sudlow, B C. Keator, and an Arocs
representative, as well as himself, had
been provided with mall lamps, such as
the colliers use. before starting. The
warning came too late, howeyer, as the
last two lights, including Mr. Lee's, van
ished as he spoke. The incident did not
have the effect of lessening the excite
meet of those to whom the trip was a
novel experience. The train had fairly
started on its dash of a mile into the
bowels of the earth, consequently the
trip was made for the most part through
The Argu3,s;i months ago gave a viv
il aad detailed description of the manner
ia which the Cable mines are operated,
aid it would be superfluous to make more
than casual mention now. Superinten
dent Sudlow had taken a special party
out with him in a chair car, on his
monthly pay day mission, and he im
proved the opportunity of inspecting
some new extensions to the mines. Two
of the party had accepted the invitatioa
to accompany him in this feature of his
official tour. Before making the des
cent, the tourists were taken ia hand by
Superintendent of Mines Lee.sad provided
witn c'.othiag and head gear, sucU as
would protect 'he ordinary wear.ng ap
parel, the transformation thus
effected affording ground for
the before mentioned "tough
looking roup." Whiie not reflecting on
Mr. Lee's ideas of suitable dress, asd
while none were strikingly improved by
the change, of Sim Keator the as
sertion may be safely made that
he had much more the appearance of
one accustomed to "lie passes'' when
travelling, than one would suppose
possiole. After donning this unbecom
ing garb the quartette was provided with
the small lamps. Mr. Lee then led the
way to the mine shaft: up a pair of stairs
an ascent of 26 feet was made. Here an
elevator was taken, a signal given and be
fore they hardly knew it, the explorers
were at the mouth of the mine 60 feet
oelow the surface of the ground. Cars
were tnen taken and the rush to the mines
proper, began. The trip required eight
minutes and at the termination a depth of
150 feet had been reached, and a mile in
distance from the mouth of the mine. A
tour of inspection was then made through
tbe various parts of the mice on foot, af
tr which the cars were again taken and
tae ascent made. There are two main
Dad ways runrhng through the mine
north and sou'h with cross-ways, 69 in
a'.l, leading to the various rooms for
c.iniag which on one side are numbered
aad on the other lettered. The cars on
t ie main roadways are operated by cable,
the others by mule. The mines are also
wired with a complete system of electric
alarms. Air is constantly pumped
it to the mines, the entire machinery ap
pliances and equipments being of the
most modern nature
"I have a pensioner here," said Super
intendent Sudlow, as the party walked
abng the road toward the mine. On one
si le of the road was a pasture where sev
er il m;les were grtzing. "See that gray
fe low there," continued the superinten
dent pointing to one. "That is not bis
natural color, it is merely the result of
a??. The mule, 'Old Mose', as we call
him, has worked S3 years under the
gn.und. He originally came from the
Gr-jen river mines in 1S63 Not long Ego
I put him on the retired list and turned
him into pasture. Ke shall never work
On the train the Argcs man learned
something of the system employed by the
Mai in dispensing $20,000 to its employ
e3tvery month. For the entire system
men are paid in ess a in one day; the
various departments being divided into
sect on, and so numbered and system
aiz;dthat the rast er of giving out the
mnarey is greatly simplified.

There is considerable comment just
now regarding Mrs. Newton Nesbit, who
is confined in the county jail for shoot
ing her husband just eight weeks ago
yesterday, and, by the way, yesterday
was the day on which Nesbit said that he
would die, although so far as we have
heard he is alive and well. Oa Decor
ation day be was able to ride out to the
cemetery. From this it would not appear
that the man was in any immediate dan
ger of death. His relatives are urging
him on to prosecute the case against his
wife and may succeed in making him do
so, although he refuses steadily to talk
about the case one way or another. The
probabilities are that Mrs. Nesbit will be
taken to the hospital as she is in a deli
cate condition, and the jail is not a fit
place for any woman in her condition, no
matter what her crime may be, and as
sae has not been proven pui'.iy the law
presumes her to be innocent. Influence
will be brought to bear on the board of
supervisors to have her removed to the
hospital before she is conned. Daven
