iii-eouncil may million*- the payment of
the following bounties on lead refined in
Canada from materials produced in Canadian smelter* Irom Canadian lead ore:
On every ton of lead refined during the

Tic St. Eugene.
Rossland Miner: Mr. J. C. Drewry
haa returned from his trip to the St.
Kugene mine and and gives nne decidedly interesting Information with regard
to the big Moyie property. The crew of
fifty men which has been employed since
the partial closing down ofthe mine la
now beiug increased steadily, and within
a short time will be buck to the 300
mark. Tbe mill is being operated to ita
full capacity and with the increased
force in the mine the output will be run
up higher than ever.
The St. Eugene la proving bigger and
better then its owners realiied or anticipated. Duriug recent weeks considerable diamond drilling waa done with results that aniost approached the wonderful. Not only was It disclosed tbat the
known ore bodies went down es far aa
was reached with the drill and maintained their blgh standard throughout, but
drilling from tbe south vein demonstrated the existence of a 12-toot ledge,
the existence of which hail nol been revealed by the prospect work done on the
property. In view of these facts there
will be no further hesitation in according to the St. Eugene the same position
in relation to silver-lead mines that is
occupied by the Ymir among free-mining mines and the Le Roi among gold-
copper propositions, namely, at Ihe very
lop of the list Tbe granting of the
Dominion subsidy on it fined lead and
the tnagnificient stiikes in the mine
itself arc features which insure to the St.
Eugene many years of productiveness
and prosperity.

There is no longer auy question as to
the Iron deposits discovered near Kitchener. Several leading C. P. R. othcial*
are interested in the find and a large
number of claims bave been staked and
prospecting ou a large wale will be inaugurated at once, William lllakemore,
formerly general manager of the Fernie
coal mines, ts in charge of the work,
and ts having an office building put up
at Kitchener. A bridge hss been huitt

be done witb a diamond drill.

William Hamilton, one ofthe Hamilton brothers, Was in towu Tuesday. He
says thut there hsve been some new
titnl» iu Ihe vicinity of Palmer mountain
and that tbe mineral future of that section looks exceedingly bright. The
Clover Leaf Mining company bave opened up ■ better body ot ore on their property, John Hamilton has staked a new
claim—the St. Lawrence, and bas a
showing of 11 Inches of solid galena.
Some day the tidiness of Palmer mount-
tin will be realised by som-roue with
capital, ind a tunnel will be run through
It, which will surpriie the people of thla
part of the country. And right here Thr
Herald desires to state that when things
boom lu that locality the Hamilton boys
should have the credit, and it Is to be
hoped that they will gather In a good
share of tbe profit. Tbry are stayera

Matt. W. Alderson In a special article
to the Western Mining World thinks
that A prospector should ''follow the
ore," and that while a shaft is more expensive, there are too many unnecessary
risks taken In driving a cross-cut tunnel.
Iu conclusion Mr. Alderson says: " 'In
multitude of counsel there Is safety,'
snd the wise prospector Is he wbo profile
by the mistakes of others. Let lhe prospector make a rough survey of bis
ground, so he will know just how far the
tunnel nil) have to be run and whal
depth It will attain uuder tbe outcrop ot
tht lead. It la cot a bard ihiugto dn
Any geod mechanic can give tcpioxi-
mste figures with a square aud level it

figure the coat of running tbe tunnel and
tbe coat of sinking to the same depth,
and compare the lm, If be is right, lei

Society flirt Ortap.
It is slated on good autboiity that tbe
Society Girl group' t; Moyie will be incorporated before a great while. If tbis
ii done, and the mine remains uuder the
management of the I'errells, there ia going to lie (*ne of tbe best mining invest
tuents that has comt up for a long lime
In this district. The Society (iir) is a
proved property and it haa been amply
demonstrated tbat the ore ia there, and
that development will put the property
on a good basis for -dividends Work on
tbis mine will mean another shipper for
Moyie within a abort time.

Harry Price Meets His Death la Ike New
Ceal Mlaes.
J.J. Miller received word last week
that Harrv Price, an old friend ot bis,
had been killed at tbe coal mine in
Michel un May 15. It seems that Price
was acting as rope man at tbe bottom of
a dip, and started to follow a train up
the incline to switch some of Ibe cars
onto another level. One of the cars
head of bim broke loose Hnd started
beck. Price saw it and turned and ran
back to a manhole for safely. He
reached it, but just as he stooped to get
in, the car struck bim below the ear on
one tide of tbe head and knocked hiui
against a post. It is thought that his
doatb was instantaneous, as be did not
move when tbe men in the wine reached
him a few momenta after, aud it is evident that hla neck was broken.
The incline has a grade of about 35
per cent, and the cars are raised and
lowered by cable, aud, of course, a wild
car goes with terrifiic speed.
Tbe deceased was 33 years of age, and
had heen well known lo both Mr. Miller

An Expensive Trip.
Toronto, May 18 —Sir Charles Tup

His brokers decided to sell, but found

which they could not sell the stock. As
Sir Charles was then ou the ocean it was
impossible to communicate with him,
therefore the deal was not consummated
