Lust   Kootenay district ol British
Columbia, (or the lust decade, bus
been Hit?   largest lead-product rig sec
lion of Camilla. It occupies tlm
suu l lir us it-in portion ul British Co
luiubiii und adjoins tin; northwestern
part of Montana anil tlir northern
part ol Idaho. The purpose of this
paper is to discuss the origin of the
silver-lead ores of Kast Kootenay
und compare them with the similar
deposits in Idaho. The field-work,
on which this article is bused, was
done in connection with thc geological mapping of Kast Kootenay for
the Oeolobical Survey of Canada.
Tbe silver-lead deposits of East
Kootenay occur in the Purcell range,
which is made up almost entirely of
sedimentary rocks of pre-Cam briars
and possibly Cambrian age, called by-
Daly the Purcell series. This series
consists of a great thickness of argillaceous quartzites, purer quartzites and argillites, with very subordinate amounts of limestone, folded into numerous northerly striking
anticlines and synclines. These structures are truncated by normal faults
which strike in a nortneasterly direction. Intruded into tlie Purcell series are several smull cross-cutting
bodies ot granite and granite porphyry. The ore-bearing formation, the
Aldridge quartzitc, is the oldest
known member of the Purcell series
and consists of a series of thick and
thin-bedded argillaceous quartzites
(locally called slates). Tbey are
dark gray on fresh fracture and
weather to a rusty brown color,
which aids in identifying the formation in the field. An examination of
the positions of the ore deposits
shows that they are restricted to
the upper members of tbe above
mentioned formation where the thick-;
bedded and purer quartzitc strata
are in greater abundance.
Sullivan mine—-The deposit of tbc
Sullivan mine is situated aboul 20
miles northwest of ('ranbrook, B.C.
It produced during the year ending
J une 30, 1911, 31,005 Ions of crude
ore containing 258,371* an. of silver
and 14,187,351 lbs. of lead The
gross value of this output was $635,
Krom 1804 to June 30, 1911
total output was 126,178    ton
taming 1,040,309 07   of stlvei
52,840,761 lbs, of    lead with .
gross value of 12,566,449
The oduntry rocks belong to
lower part ol the Purcell series and
have a general N —S strike with
dips varying from 211 degrees to so
degrees to the east The thick
bedded members ol the ore-bearing
series, the most favorable loi re
placement, appear, when examined
microscopically, to in* made up "t
angular Interlocking grains ol quarts

The ore body is not a tine fissure
vein but is a replacement deposit
rnnlormable in dip and slrike with
tbe enclosing quart/ites The mav
tinuin stope width Is 180 feet and the
minimum slope length 588 leet
The interior ol racb ore mass ran
mm;. o| an intimate mixture ol line
blrndr and galena with minor
amounts ol Hie iron sulphides, py-
ritr, pyrrhotitc and i.imesonitc
llrre and there through this mhlurc
occur lenses of purer galena The
gangue, which is very small in
amount, contains Idlotuorphlc ctv
stals ol pink garnet, some dlopllflfl
und aetlnolite with verj subordinate
amounts of culeitr. This interior
/one passes outwards into .1 line-
gratned mixture of pyrite, pyrrhotite
and small amounts of catena associated with crystals of colorless gurnet,
aetlnolite ami Inutile The pyritic
mne, in turn, with u gradual decrease in the amounts of sulphides,
grades exteriorly Into a eherty 'zone
which is present only where the
cosntry rock is the heavy-bedded)
purer quartzltr. When the more
argillaceous slaty members are pre
sent, tlie pyritic zone passes into
the normal country rock at that
point. The eherty zone is free Irom
gangue minerals and passes niit*
wards into the normal quartzites
which enclose the entire deposit. Nn
garnet or dlopside is present in the
country rock and tliese minerals are
entirely restricted to lhe .ire.i
flues-red by tlw ore solutions.
As mentioned, ttie ore deposit as a
whole is u conformuble replacement
of finegrained .1 -.lllucuotis qtmrtzltei
by fine-grained galena, zinc blende
and iron sulphides. Replacement is
very well shown in most parts ul tlie
deposit since alternate bunding of
ore uud quurtzite is seen near the
periphery of thc ore masses where
the relative susceptibility to replacement of the laminae of the
quartzitc is different. Joining tliese
favorable bauds are numerous interlacing veinlets of sulphides which represent an intermediate stage in the
complete replacement of the quartzitc. Examined microscopically, the
sulphides appear to hgve entered between the quartz grains of the quartzitc and then to havo attacked the
quartz itself. Tbe sulphides, entering along the favorable laminae replace thc muscovite also. Evidently
muscovite has been formed previous
to the introduction  or the sulphides.
Pangenesis.—A par agent-tic study
of the ores show that thc gangue
minerals are often in idiumorphic
crystals and free from sulphide.-,. Also, tho small cracks in the gangue
minerals are filled with a mixture of
pyrite, pyrrhotitc, zinc bleade and
galena. From these facts, it is c included that the gangue minerals have
priority in formation. Tbe -elati nis
if thc gangue minerals to eacb other
counld not be ascertained as tliey
were never seen iu contact. There
is a possibility tbat some of the
sulphides were contemporaneous with
the gangue minerals, for idiomorphic
crystals of pyrite and arsenopyrite
were observed embedded in the fine
grained sulphides. This latter second generation of the sulphides is
represented by a fine-grained intimate mixture of galena, zinc blende,
pyrite, and pyrrhotitc whose order
of formation is so confused that they
are believed to be contemporaneous.
The sulpho salt jamesonite is associated with small calcite veins which
are later than the main ore bodies
and is probably a secondary mineral.
The passage for the ore solution
which formed the Sullivan deposit is
believed to be the well-defined bedding planes of the quartzitic strata
Krom several such channels the solutions replaced the country rock within tlieir sphere or influence
st. Eugene deposit.—ihe St. Eugene mine which is located on the
east side nf lower Movie lake near
the town of Movie, B.C., up till the
"lose of last year has been the largest lead-producing property in Canada. It yielded during the year end
ng June 30, 1811, IT,705 tons of
■rude ore ami 7,7ns tons of concentrates containing 804,044 ox. of ill-
and 8,018,169 lbs, of lead The
gross value of this output was Jl-",-

The deposit of the St. i-.ugcne'
mine occurs kn a zone of lissuring

of argatlliceoui quartzites helongiug

The ore bodies are replacement
deposits jn the heavy-bedded purer
quartzites and are restricted to the
fractured area between the twn main
fissures. Where the fissure crosses
the more argillaceous quartzites, it
is usually tilled with quartz containing small quantities of sulphides.      ■
Thc ore. consists mainly of coarsegrained galena with subordinate
amounts of zinc blende, pyrite,
pyrrhotitc, magnetite, and a little
Chalcopyrlte, It is also reported
that tbe sulphides—pyrite and pyrr-
hotite-rwere slightly more abundant
near tlie periphery of the ore bodies.

(By E, S. Martin).
Of the sentimental side of Christ-
uius mosl of us have a fairly definite
Idea. It is clear to us how it means
good will to men and is properly
celebrated by exchanges of gifts and
the promotion of gaiety and human
welfare. Most of us realize that
Xto birth of Christ was a true Godsend to earth, but not many of us
have due com prehension of what really happened to earth when Christ
was horn, or nf the nature and
scope of thc impulses and inspirations that His coining let loose
among humanity. We have accepted
the idea of peace on earth, hut largely by an act of faith and commonly
with only a very vague notion of ito
power or of the processes by which
it is to come about. Our ideal of
Christ is of a person mild, compassionate, full of sympathy, preaching
submission. So He was, and He
did preach submission or something
that looks very like it. We are not
used to assoiiate great power, the
ability to shake and shape the
world, with mild, submissive-seeming
persons. It is as though what seemed wax, fit to feed a gentle flame,
had turned out to be dynamite, and
where it fell changed the very face
of nature.
The politics of Christianity—that
in it which immediately allects luws
and government and the courses of
ons—appears, as we try to trace
11 ordinary history, as a record
of wars, persecutions, sectarian
squabbles, conquests most cruel for
the spread of thc true faith, lasting
and intense rivalries between various
depositories of that faith, image-
making by symbolists and image-
smashing by iconoclasts, ominous deviations by the self-indulgent from
the Galilee standard, and drastic
Puritan expurgations of beauty and
sport- It is not a panorama fit to
induce, much gaiety even at Christmas time. Nevertheless, since the
year our calendar dates frum, the
Christian processes of world regeneration have gone ahead.
Dens it seem r.ot eo?
Pevet is not disease, bui part of
the effort of nature to get rid of disease. We see and feel Ihe fevers of a
world that has much the matter with
it. "Who knows," says a recent
writer, "hut a day may come when
the bloody church history of the first
eighteen centuries of our era may be
looked upon as the history of t'he
infantile diseases of Christianity.
Kvcn now Christianity is nol linn un
its childish feet; its maturity is
hardly dawning on our dim vision."
What this same writer calls "the
power of a fundamentally new aspect
of life's problems" is the power
whose coming we recognize at
Christmas time; a power that penetrates all politics and ull social life
and that hammers at the stubborn
gates of economics. Not so much the
Golden Rule us tire power that is
continually compelling the recognition of the necessity of the Golden
Ilule is tlie Christmas-horn power
that the world has Co reckon with.
Christ is Xto great mind, the great
radical. It was a tremendous driv.
ing, upsetting force that came out of
lurieu into the affairs nf men. The
peace' on earth of which the angels
sang is a peace incompatible with
tyranny or despotism, no peace of
Suppression, of a lid held down upon
a gasping humanity, but n peace of
liberty, of justice, of civilization, of
tin* highest development to which
humanity can attain.
And tftat sort does not come with,
out fevers, observe this latest one
that has been burning so fiercely in
southeastern Kumpe. The Turk is
passing because his religion Is a dying flame by ttie light of whicb men
can no longer come to full contem-
porurv stature. The Christianity of
the Balkan Christians may be a wild
enough mixture', but there seems to
be life iu it The people whom it
Affects cannot stay still and be left
behind by an advancing world, They
lie quiet and gather power as a geyser gathers steam and presently burst
out at the obstacle in their way. It
Is strange. Fifteen years ago the
writer already quoted, forecasting
and justifying thcVertain destruction
of Turkish power, described Turkey

of   Europe in 1 which u whole people

I make neither   boast nor apology,
but simply     state thnt I, who am a
total abstainer    and sometime member of thc Bund of Hope, Rechabites,
Good Templars and the various other
water-wagon   brotherhoods,   wanted
to get drunk.
"Crazy," I hear some one exclaim.
Still, if    further    proof of my remarkable abstinence   be required, allow- me to add convincingly that thc
redoubtable "Carrie Nation" had  no
more sincere admirer than I, yet    in
the face of    this assertion I stoutly
maintain that I longed tn quaff    the

Lung, long     ago. wben tbe    choir
of angels    heralded the Iirsl Christ
mas,    ihey  sung something     about
peace and good will to men.
Possibly they were not bleeding
turkeys at that stage lu the world's
history, iu no other way cuu 1 account for the angels choosing such u
dull, uninteresting theme, iu preference to a carol extolling the virtues
of the turkey-
Rut to continue.
On Christmas Eve I sauntered
forth into thc busy streets, pecking
in here and there at the store wm
dows, and ruminating on tlie fancy
that this grey old world is quite a
cheery place after all. A window
full of dolls and toys and other pretty trinkets caught my eye, and I
caught a glimpse of thousands of
little children caressing these childish treasures.

"Splendid," I exclaimed out of reverence to hoary heads and scraggy
necks, I mazed at a display of
mufilers and comforters, to whose
soft encircling folds, scrawny necks,
creamy necks and much necks could
alike be entrusted.
"Gee," I whispered gleefully tn my*

The report uf tlif conciliation
hoard, which is signed hy Judge Me
Gibbon, nf Brampton, out., iiiuu
man, ami .1. A, Macdonald, of Halifax, representing tbc employees, fullj
justifies alrnoal everj claim hv thf
officers ol the Brotherhood t.. more
ihan vindicate ili» position whicli
they took throughout.
The minority report of ,1. E. Duval
of Montreal, who was appointed by
ibe departmeni of labor to represent
Un* company upon ihc latter'a refusal
in be represented, has not yel been
filed with the department, but it is
believed thai though ll docs
agree in every particular with tb
the majority, in certain vital ji
it is iu agreement.
I Recognition <<i the schedules was
asked lor from lhc company, together with increases nf pay averaging Ifi
per cent. The strike was called on
the minister ol labor's first refusal
to appoint a board, and Is siill on.
The general disorganization which ensued, especially at the lakes, during
lhc grain-moving season, and the
consequent representations which
were addressed to tlie department on
this account, finally induced the minister to grant a board for "a limited
territory," it being generally understood that the finding would apply
throughout the system.
The report at the outset commends
the minister for limiting the scope of
the inrpnry, and recommends as follows:
1. The strikers should he reinstated in their old positions forthwith at
the same salaries they were rccciviijj*
at the time of the strike.
2. The strikers should receive
hack pay fur llie time they have been
on strike.
3. The men who were discharged
for their connection wilb the Broth*
erhood of Hailway Employees should
be treated as strikers, receiving the
same treatment.
4. Increase of salaries is recommended, hut is left to ihc parties Interested to arrange at a fulure date.
5. This report is to cover all districts alTecled within lhc senpe 0f tbe
The board then lays down certain
rules which shall govern the members iu reference to vacancies, appointments, etc. It further decides
that the schedules recommended shall
take cfiect from May 1, 1012, and remain in effect for one year, ami from
year to year thereafter.
Time and a half for overtime, pub
lie holidays, and Sumlays is recommended by thc hoard.
It is understood that Mr. Duval in
his minority report recommends the
reinstatement of tbe men. No communication in connection will. the
award lias been received from the
company, but there is reason tn believe that au amicable agreement will
be reached, ami the minister i confident that the company will abide
by tbe award wben it is presented to
them. Thc        recommendation,
however, that hack pay
be given to the men for thc period
during which they were on strike
may be opposed |>y the company.
The strike was called on November
Ith, and will he continued until the
company has decided upon what
course it will pursue.
■Indue McQibbon who acted .1-;
chairman of the hoard, has acted in
like capacity on no less than ten
urbit rat ions, some of whicb concerned the biggest railway disputes
in Canada, lie has the further distinction of having had every award
he made faithfully carried out afterward.
President Mosher, of the Brother
hood, when seen was thoroughly sat
isfied with the result of his efforts
and those of his fellow-oflicers and is
optimistic that the award will he
carried out by the company.
There is really very little doing in
municipal politics these days. Only a
few business men appear to he taking thc slightest interest in tbe Makeup of next year's council.
Names so far mentioned, do not
vary greatly (rom the list given last
week, but two or three names have
come up this week of special interest. 1

(<.'ontinui.il from page one),
the fissured quartzites near the vein
arc heavily charged with these minerals. In addition the quartzites in
certain localities show evidences of
silification although no true chert,
as found in tlte Sullivan deposit, was
identified in the St. Eugene.
A study ot the pangenesis ot the
ores of the St. Eugene shows that
megnetite was the first mineral deposited and was followed by the
gangue minerals. The garnet, with
approximating idiomorphic outline
is penetrated by numerous needles of
aetlnolite. The sulphides were d«*
posited lust and fill the cracks and
interstices of the other minerals
The presence of the diagnostic minerals, garnet, dinpside, aetlnolite,
and muscovite, which are entirely restricted to the ore deposit and absent from the surrounding quartzit-
siiggests that the deposition nf
the ore took place in the deeper vein
/.one under conditions of temperature
and pressure, comparable to those nf
contact metamnrpnic deposits No
Igneous intrusion which could supply
solutions of this kind outcrops with-
several miles of these deposits.
However, in tlie neighborhood of the
Sullivan mine, small sills of gabbro
older than the nre deposits are exposed and in the St. Eugene, a
dyke of diorite cuts the vein. The
ureal study of tne East Kootenay
district revealed numerous cross-
cutting bodies of uranite and granite
porphyry which are prrtbahty subordinate nr "cupola" stocks ot the
West Kootenay granite batholith.
In addition, the areas of sillimanite
garnetiferous mica schist in East
Kootenay are interpreted as argillaceous quartzites metamorphosed by
au intrusion of granite not yet exposed by erosion. It is therefore
concluded that the Purcell series of
East Kootenay, in part, rests upon
an intrusive basement ot granite
which was the source of tbe ore solution, resulting in the formation of
the Sullivan and St. Eugene ore
The St. Eugene vein, described
above, represents a fissure filled under conditions less extreme than
those of the Siillipan, since garnets
are less plentiful, galena is coarsegrained and more abundant and holds
smaller quantities of zinc blende and
pyrrhotitc. In addition carbonates
are more abundant.
In comparing the deposits of East
Kootenay with those of the Coeur
d'Alcnes, the genetic relationships
become still more clear. In both regions, the deposits occur under similar
geological conditions and as replacement deposits i n fine-grained ar-
gillaccntiN and purer quartzites. The
description of the various types will
be given in an order corresponding to
a decrease in conditions of tempera
tup' and pressure, starting with the
most extreme, those formed under
contact metamorphlc conditions. A
rather full description of the (Iranite
or Success mine Is given as in this
depnsit the relations to the intrusive
is clearly shown. This deposit has
been described by Itansome in the
tollowing words:
"The ore of the (Iranite mine is
exclusively confined to the tongue
like mass of slate and quartzitc
which . . . extends almost entirely across the large intrusive body of
iiion/onite north of Oem. Tbere is
no vein, the ore occurring in masses
of Irregular form and various sizes,
which are clearly for the most part
replacements of the quartzites in
places where the tatter has been
most thoroughly fissured. The ore
masses in so far as they exhibit any
regularity at all are suggestive of
lenses standing on edge, the shortest
diam. *.r of nearly every mass being
approximately horizontal. In the
upper workings, the ore consisted
chiefly or galena carrying about
three quartern    ol aa ounce of silver
of pyroxene or In a Few places a pink
tint where garnet in microscopic crystals is the principal contact nicta-
morphic mineral. Tlw microscope
shows thnt the qunrt/Jto is eotn-
thu •*>,etelV recrystallized to an aggregate*,
'of interlocking quartz grains which
enclose variable proportions of thc
pale green monocllnic pyroxene,
green rrnwn blotlte, white mica
(probabh muscovite), and garnet.
The association of the ore minerals
with the metamorphlc silicates is so
close that the conclusion of their
contemporaneous genesis is unques*
t ionahle, . . The microscope reveals tlie presence here aud tliere of a
little carbonate, apparently calcite.
The foregoing characteristics judicata
that the nre of the (Iraiiitc mine
was deposited shortly after the,
intrusion of moi.zol.itc am) is a
phase of contact iiietaiuorpliisiii."
A comparison nf tiie description of
the Granite nr Success mine of
Idaho with that nf tlte Sullivan nf
Hritish Columbia given above shows
a striking similarity. Moth deposits are replacements of argillaceous
quartzites hy an intimate mixture of
zinc blende, galena and iron sulphides, the latter increasing towards the periphery of the ore bodies. The gangue minerals arc almost identical iu both cases but in
the Sullivan, the contact metamorphlc silicates are restricted entirely
to the ore masses, while in the
Granite or Success mine, the enclosing quartzites are heavily charged
with these minerals. Therefore it is
concluded that the Sullivan ore
masses were deposited under conditions nf temperature and pressure
less extreme than those under which
the Granite or Success ore bodies
were formed. Also the fact which
is especially worthy of emphasis is
the presence of an intrusive inonzon-*
ite genetically related to the ore deposit in the Granite or Success
mine, while in the Sullivan, no such
intrusion is known; but from the
similarity of the ileposit in mineralogy and relations-iips such a mass
is doubtless present although probably too deep to he exposed in the
future workings ol thc mine.
With a further decrease in temperature and pressure the conditions,
under which the St. Eugene of Eust
Kootenay, thc llig Eight and B. II.
ore bodies of Idaho were deposited,
arc reached. In these deposits, pyrlte, pyrrhotitc and the contact
metamorphic silicates are less abundant and cnltite more plentiful than
the Sullivan und Granite ore bodies.
With the entire disappearance of
the above silicates and a notable increase of carbonates which point to
conditions of deposition less extreme
than those of the St. Eugene, wc
have the Tiger Poorman lode described by Itansome as follows:
"In the Tigcr-Poorman and Standard Mamuiouth mines siderite is
only moderately abundant and the
ores contain notable quantities of
sphalerite and pyrrhotitc. Pyrite
aird chaleupyrite are comparatively
abundant in both mines."
The Wardner mines represent ore
bodies deposited under the least extreme of any, either in East Kootenay or the Coeur d'Alenes. Concerning these deposits Itansome
siimmari/rs as follows:
In the Wardner mines siderite is
most abundant than elsewhere in
the district. Sphalerite is rare, pyrite subordinate and pyrrhotit* unknown. Garnet, biotlte, pyroxene
and magnetite entirely absent from
these deposits."
Thus the. evidence regarding genesis
brought to light in the study of the
silver-lead deposits of East Kootenay|
supports the view advanced hy Itansome in 1908 concerning tlte origin of
the silver-lead deposits of the Coeur
The following table* is a summary
of the relations existing between the
deposits nf East Kootenay aud the
Coeur d'Alenes and showing their
probable relations to decreasing
temperature and pressure.
