$2,000,000 ,as compared with the
prrceding year, the unsatisfactory state of the metal market
being one of thc chief causes assigned.   Light rainfall and consequent   shortage    of   water
dimininished the output of hydraulic mines, but iu spite of this
placer  mines showed an    increase of 10 1-2 ))er cent.   Van-
puver island coal was affected
n California, its principal mar-
Set, by the competition of fuel
lii, while the  disaster at the
[row's Nest  mines,   together
with strikes, crippled the collier-
■i in that part of tlie province.
In assembling the output of
the lode mines tlie output for
the   year is   considere   that
ainout of ore for which smelter
or mill returns  have been received during the year; consequently the drop  in the metal
market value of metals has had
a double effect on the statistics,
inasmuch as it has reduced the
Value of such ores as were mined and has constrained the miner to restrict his output.
Compared with 1901 the value of oro output last years was
as follows:

The report points out particularly the importance which attaches to Hritish Columbia iron
deposits as being the only
known occurrences of iron ore
in quantity on the northern ] had froi
part at least, of the Pacific King's
coast, and consequently iron
manufactured therefrom would
have the whole of this territory as a market.
and we foresee tlmt more voters
than usual will be dissappohited
at the next election to lind that
tbey have no vote in consequence of the change in the
law.

HAIN & CO,
In quantity copper showed an
increase from 27,603,000 pounds
in 1001 to 19,636;000 pounds in
1902, though there was a decrease in value; lead fell from
oi;^82,000 pounds in 1901 to 22,-
530,000 pounds in 1902 and silver from 5,151,000 pounds in
1901 to 3,917,917 pounds in 1902.
By districts there was a falling off in value with the exception of Cariboo and Cassiar,
both of which are placer mining districts, It may be noted
however, that taking all lode
mines into account the tonnage
of ore mined in 1902 was 998,999
r. J compared with 920,410 tons miu-
M. ed in 1901, an increase of 8.6 per
Accent. This increase is due to
Rossland and Boundary, more
particularly the latter, where
521,102 tons of ore were mined
and smelted.
The output of copper by districts was: Boundary, 11,955,.
582 pounds; liossland, 11,607,-
807; coast, 2,196,081; Nelson,
101,144; other districts, 24,843: a
total of 20,636,057 pounds,
The great decrease in lead
production was owing to the
suspension of the East Kootenay lead shipments, due to unsatisfactory prices,
A good deal of iron ore has
been mined on the coast during
the past, year, but the only
shipments made have been
from Toxada island, front
which some 6290 tons of magnetic iron ore, running over 50
per cent, iron, were sent to the
iron furnace at I mutinies, Wash.
Prom the iron mines at Cherry
creek, near Kamloops, some
3727 tons of magnetite were
shipped to Nelson, for use there
in the smelter as a flux.

out in allusion to the completion of the Tyee and the Crofton smelters on Voncouver island for the treatment of copper-gold oro.
The dissolution of thu provincial House will take plabe on
16th inst., and the   voters will
so have  it  in   their  power to
again   choose   representatives,
but before anyone can  have a
say in such choice he must first
be on the voters'   list.    After
the dissolution of  the prese.it
house the registers of votes wiil
be cancelled and every person
wishing to vote must make application   to    the collector  of
votes in his electorial-distric.t to
have his name on the new register.   Sections five and six of
the "Redistribution Act,   1902,"
which conies in force  upon the
dissolution of the present  Legislative Assembly read as follows:
"5. Forthwith after the coming into the force of this Act.
the Registers of Voters for the
former Electoral Districts shall
be cancelled, and the Lieutenant-
Governor in Council shall appoint a person to be Collector
for     each     newly-constituted
Electoral District, and it shall
be the  duty  of  the   new Collectors to be appointed,  in. addition to the duties laid down
in the Provincial Elections Act,
or otherwise   required  to  be
performed by law, to make up
new registers of voters for the
several Electoral Districts for
which they shall be soappointed.
"6 It shall be necessary  for
every  person desiring  to   he
registered as a voter in any of
the said newly-constituted  Districts to apply to the Collector,
as provided by section 11 of chap.
67 of the Revised Statutes, 1897,
being the Provincial Elections
Act."
Section 8 of the said Act reads:
8. The Lieutenant Governor
iu Council shall fix the cliiteiipon
which the  Collector  for  each
newly-constituted District shall
hold a Court of Revising of the
Register of Voters prepared by
hiiri, and   shall prescribe   the
notice that shall be given of tho
holding of said Court, but such
date for the first Court of Revision shall not be more than three
months after the ilate tliis Act
comes into force.
It is therefore of the utmost
importance that everyone
should immediately upon the
dissolution of the House give
this matter of getting his name
on the voters' list his prompt
attention as otherwise he may
be shut out, The lists must be
dosed within three months of
the date of dissolution, but, they
may and probably will be closed
muchsooner. Besides tho name
must be posted up a certain
time bofore the list is closed in
order to give everyone a
chance to object to any name
proposed to be put on the list.
We cannot too forcibly impress
upon our readers the necessity
of getting their names on the
of application for
registration ol' voters can lie
of charge from the
rinfcoi', Victoria, or
frffin the Collector of Votes I'or
this Electoral District, The
Collector of Votes, tinder the
now Act, wiil not lie appointed
until after the dissolution of
the House. The applical ion has
to be sworn to by the applicant
in person, so that it is impossible
for anyone to have his name on
the list unless he looks after the
matter himself.
The Sriowshofir Mine.
At the present timetheSnow
shoe mine, in Phoenix cainp,
lias the greatest number of
men employed iu tlie history
of tlie property. For the last
two mouti is the force has been
graduallv increased, until the
payroll now has 101) men there
on. If coke can be had at the
Boundary Creek smelters in
sufficient quantity, the force
will be still further increased
in the near future, in all probability, as the ore reserves in the
hiine were never in such good
*hapef'ora largo and im-feasing
tonnage.
This Week's tonnage is also
the largest in the history of the
mine, the figures being 2100 tons,
which went tu tlie Greenwood
and Boundary Falls smelters.
For several weeks past the tonnage irom the Snowshoe has
been steadily getting larger,
and it is fully expected that,
with normal conditions, it will
soon be enlarged to 500 tons
daily, which could be maintained from the property without
trouble.
General work at the Snow-
shoe has also been progressing
most favorably of late, ore being shipped .from several parts
of the mine, including tho new
glory hole, near the end of the
No. 2 railway spur, which is
said to be some of the best in
the mine. On the main inclino
shaft the work of timbering it
to the third level and below is
completed, and (lie pocket at
the foot is also finished, so Ibat
as soon as tho rails are laid for
the two-ton skips to nm on, tho
shaft will be ready for use.
The now 150 h. p. electric hoist,
the first of its kind in the Boundary country, is all ready for
use, and will probably be placed
in commission on or about (be
1st. of July. The uew 150 h. p.
boiler, the largest yet. brought
into the Hoiindary, is expected
to arrive bofore long, and will
largely augment the boiler
capacity of the mint*.
.—...«.   . .
Oro Denoro will Ship Ore.
Smith Curtis, M. P. P, forthe
Rosslane and Hoiindary districts, is expected to arrive, at
the Oro Denoro mine, near
Eholt, about the 15th inst.
Prospecting work is being carried on at the property under
the direction of R, 11. Anderson,
superintendent of the neighboring R. C. mine. It is understood
that after Mr-Curtis' arrival a
commencement will be made to
quarry and ship ore to the
smelter,

SATURDAY. JUNK 13,1903.
THE DYING LEGISLATURE.
It is announced that the provincial legislature will be dissolved on the 16th inst. It is
now nearly three years since
the last appeal to the electorate, and the inauguration of a
government that has signally
failed to come up to the expectation of its friends and supporters, "Down with Joe Martin" was tho slogan of tlie auti-
Martinites throughout the province, antl the people responded
at the polls iu no uncertain
way. Opponents of the government were elected in most
of the constituencies, and Mr.
Martin forthwith  resigned.
For two years previous the
Semlin government was in power; an administration noted for
weakness, bombast, cheap economy here, and foolish extravagance there, and a tendency to
tinker with the established order of things, without the courage, ability and pratical wisdom
to establish a better system; for
the self-sufficiency and all sufficiency of some of its prominent
members.
The Dunsmuir government
was hailed by ita supporters as
a deliverance from the weakness of the Semlin government,
and the radical innovations, it
was supposed, that Mr. Martin
would have introduced, if he
had had an opportunity. Now
that we have a stable conservative government, it was said
capital will flow into the country for the development of our
great resources: in short, every
thing will be lovely, and the
goose will hang high. Instead
of that, alas for human foresight! everything in the political line has been very bad and
the goose has hung very low
indeed.
In course of time, Mr. Duns
muir, upon the withdrawal of
Mr. Turner, his Finance Minister, from the cabinet, asked Mr,
John C. Brown of New Westminister, a Martinite, to join
the government. Now, it ap>
pears, that Mr. Brown was a
life-long political opponent of
Mr. Richard McBride, Minister
of Mines in the Dunsmuir cab
inet. Mr. McBride was offended
because of Mr. Brown's entrance
into the cabinet, ,and immediately resigned his portfolio, and
when Mr. Brown went to his
constituency for re-election Mr,
McBride threw himself into the
contest and succeeded, along
with his friends, in bringing
about the defeat of Mr, Brown.
This was a very natural course
for Mr. McBride to take from a
purely personal point of view,
but whether or not it was in the
best interests of the province
is another question. Tho defection of Mr. McBride and his
following w.is a severe blow to
the Dunsmuir government, and
about destroyed its usefulness
so far as the true functions of
government and the interests of
the people were concerned.
Thereafter Mr. McBride and
his followers were active in
their opposition to the Duns-
niuir government. They were
out for revenge, and the pro-
iniership and the other offices
in the gift of the premier. They
have had their revenge and
McBride has reached his goal,
but his followers fell short a
little. The Dunsmuir govern
ment now greatly weakened,
received at critical times the
support of Mr. Martin and his
followers. However, from this
time on, its usefulness was gone
and chaos and discord reigned
in the legislature and government.
A good deal of time, when
the legislature was in session
was taken  up   with   unseemly

Mr. Dunsmuir in connection
with some ruilroad matters. A
royal commission was appointed, which like the government
whose action it was supposed
to investigate, should not be
taken as a model. After the
lapse of many months, it reported that the charges were not
sustained.
In the closing months of 1902,
Colonel Prior, who had been
elected from the city of Victoria, took over the tottering government from Mr. Dunsmuir.
The new premier encountered
serious difficulties from the
start, though many of the people and soma leading j.uir n al
were inclined to give him support, erroneously thinking that
a period of stable government
nad at last arrived. Mr. Denis
Murphy of West Yale entered
the cabinet as provincial secretary, but after a short visit to
his constituency, Mr. Murphy
decided to retire from the cabinet and political life. Mr. W.
fi. Mclnnis became provincial
secretary, which position he
held until a few days before the
dismissal of premier Prior. The
by-election in West Yale and
South Victoria went against
the government, but in spite of
this the premier had a good
majority at the opening of the
House. The results of the session just closed, with its land
grant scandal enquired into by
a committee of the House, with
fatal consequences to the Prior
government, the premier's attempt to save himself by the
dismissal of Eberts and Wells
before the report of the commit
tee was made, and to hold onto
office after his defeat in the
House, his dismissal by the Gov-
enorafteathe Chimney Creek
cableeuquiry, and the succession
of Mr. McBride to the premiership are fresh in the minds of
everyone interested.

between which claim antl the
Defiance there is only the Fremont. The tunnel Mr. Fowler
was driving was calculated to
cut the ledge at about 100 feet
in and at a depth of 40 feet.
Particulars of this new strike
and of the extent and value of
tlie oro will be available in a few
days. Meantime Mr. Fowler's
friends are congratulating him
upon the promising outlook for
this, his latest venture, he having confidently predicted his
ability to find the Defiance vein,
and that it would be found to be
well worth opening up when
struck.
David Webb, who was very
seriously burned about five
weeks ago at Anaconda, is now
making gradual progress towards recovery at the Sisters'
hospital, Greenwood, From
the severe nature of his injuries it was for a time considered
doubtful if he would survive the
shock and subsequent dangerous effects of the burning, but
happily the critical period appears to have passed, although
his condition is still such that
only a continuance of the good
nursing and skillful surgical attention ho is receiving will improve his chances of complete
recovery. Dr. Oppenheiiner
had recently to remove parts of
the tops of three (lingers of the
left hand, gangrenous flesh having threatened trouble. The
greater part of the patient's
body is still a mass of raw flesh,
but the healing process has set
in and day by day the pain and
risk are lessened. The saving
of this man's life will be a decided tripute to the skill of tho
surgeon. All being well Webb
will next week be permitted to
occasionally leave his bed to
give him relief from the ted-
iousness of lying down all
the time.
Everybody is cordially invited
to attend the pavilion dance at
the Hotel Winnipeg, Grand
Forks, B. C, on the evening of
July 1st, Dominion Day. Gal-
liher's orchestra, of Spokane,
will furnish the music. Tickets one dollar.
Geo. L. Pedlar, Eye Specialist,
will make his regular visit at
the Drug Store here on July 8.
(evening) and July 9, (till 12.A.M.)
If you suffer from headaches or
Eye discomfort of any kind do
not fail to consult him and
receive a skilled examination by
the most perfect testing appliances that science has produced. Appointments may be
made in advance at the Drug
Store.
