Mr. Parker's Views.
Kditor Herald. In answer to
your quory its to my opinion of tin1
effect of tin- promised Ihjuum of -$15
jM-i* ton on lead smelted in Cunailn,
I will stale Unit until tliis is actually on the statute books, it is almost to soon to express an opinion,
for there may lie clauses in tlu* lull
which may make the results not
so gratifying as wo would hope for.
If the bonus is granted for five
years time, which is the expected
relief from tliis government, the
ctfect will not lie nearly so good, as
if the increased duties on lead as
8Uggost«l at Sandon. December
10th last had been imposed. Tho
duties on lead once placed would
require more effort to bo expunged,
or reduced, than the Imhiur, which
will probably be loft to tho judgment of tlie finance minister, i
therefore look upon tho bonus with
mingled feelings of pleasure and
rogrot, for where an uncertain condition prevails tho investing public
have not that measure of confidence in the resources of the country, which  depend  upou  :
tion that may bo changed
by the caprices of n cabinet or ono
cabinet minister,
As long, however, as tin- bonus
lasts, we ma\ o insider thai we will
have u'oi^l times, for the following
1st, Tin' mines that an* in a
shipping condition, hut whicli are
not Bhipping, Mill naturally ship
tlieir ores.
2nd, Those in adevelopingcondition, but not developing, will naturally dovolopo.
.inl. Those properties which
havo a favorable surface miueral
condition, will naturally either have
Home work done on them, or the
owners will find a more favorable
market u\r them than has lieen the
case the past two years.
Ith. ISncouragomont will bogiv-
eu the prospector to hunt for new
finds, prnlialily resulting in the
lator opening up "' a new distriot
or two,
5th«   Tito waga expenditure will
return to ll Id standard of aliout
$2,500,000 per annum instead of
less than $500,000,
Bill, The merchants, who have
been reducing their stock, will re.
pleiiish it, resulting in tin1 merchants oast yetting fresh orders,
uml giving tho railroads moro work<
7th, The smelters will have live
furnaces, instead of dead ones, and
this will givo employment to mora
men. mid through this certain ores
available for fluxes can be used
and purchased by them which
would otherwise have to remain in
the ground. This latter feature is
nn important one, giving employment to more men.
The amount of 1k>uus to be distributed in five years time on the
basis of SIT) per ton, will be about
§2,500,000 and as the mine owners
will spend $10,000,000 more
during the same period, than
they would have done under the
past bad conditions, it will he seen
. that the government aid, although
i tardy, will mean a direct aid to the

Ottawa, July '.. ii-VuuiTli.' Nelson Daily News.) Fielding
today gave notice of a resolution authorising tlie payment of
$500,000 a .war lor five .wars hy way .if 1 utiesto ih<* lend pro-
duci-rs of Uritish Colombia!
Tin* terms of thf resolution are as follows:
1. The govepior-iu-council may authorize the payment of
a bounty of 75 cents por t(H) pounds of lend eontni liu lend-
bearing ores mined iu Canada, provided tlmt the sum to bo paid
OS such bounty *Bball not exiv.il $500,000 in any tiscal year.
Provided also that whon it appears to the satisfaction of the
minister charged with the administration of this act that tin*
standard price of pig lend in Loudon, England, exceeds til 10s
por ton of 2,2440 lbs., such bounty shall be reduced proportionately hy amount of such excess.
2. Payment of said bounty may be made from time to time
to the extent of liO imt cent of the full bounty authorized, subject
to adjustment at the close of each tiscal year. If at the close of
any year it shall appear that during the year the quantity of lead
produced on which the Iwutlty is authorixed, exceeds iitt.BHO
tons of 2,000 lbs. each, tho rate of bounty shall be reduced to
such a sum as will briny the payments for the year within
the limit mentioned in section 1.
S,    If nt any time it .shall appear to the satisfaction of the
govomor-in-council that the charges for transportation "nil treatment of lend ores in Canada are excessive, or that there is any
discrimination which prevents the smolthig of such ores in Canada on fob* and reasonable terms, the governor-ill-council mny
authorize the payment of bounty tit such reduced rate, as may be
doomed just, on lead contained in such ores mined in Canada
and exported for treatment abroad,
-1. Said bounties shall cease und determine on the IJOtlt day

indirect aid to the amount of $10,-
The    following    will    be   tlie
amounts of bonus   on the different
grades of oro that each grado will

ID per cent, lead ore, $5.40 pet1 ton
Tit) per cent, lead ore, $0,75 per ton
(iO per cent, lead ore, $8.10 per ton
In conclusion, whilst iu common
with the lead miners. I deplore the
fact that by reason of its policy,
the government refuses to increase
the duty ou lead in ores and in]
metal, yet I am plonsed to note
thai it realizes the fact that the
industry must he encouraged, and
if we yet the bonus, tho waiting
for wliich has almost turned the
mine owners hair grey. T will welcome it, hut not so heartily as I
would the increase of the lead duties.
This latter feature, however,
is Kiund to come, so T am prepared   to   accept  that which   the
,'.»ls   may   givo as n   I
yours l-'aillifu'ily.

The coal output for the month
of .June was as follows: Coal Creek
24,580; Morrissey. 18,124; Michel.

The coke shipped during the
month wits 6,608 tons from Fernie

Tho disposition of the coke was:
Canadian Smelting works. Trail.

Hall Mines. Nelson, .[ii:! tons;
Montreal A Boston company,
Boundary Falls, 1,771; Northport

It is expected that the total coal
shipments for July will be in the
neighborhood of 85,000 tons, aud
the coke tonnage will also lie
largely increased,

the first time, all the ovens in the

of writing. Among those who

to secure the privilege of the

there is no doubt he would get a

however, as to his willingness to

If we had been in charge of the
weather the i«ist month, we would
have furnished a little more sunshine and a little less rain. And,
yet, if this had been the case,
some kicker, as bit: a crank as our-
self, would have bad something to
say against it. so it is just as well
to let Jiui (iill remain in charge as

hears enough kicks without going
off his regular beat to Hnd them.
The ruins have shown up Cranbrook in all h.-r beauty, and given
the best of reasons why the town
should In- known as "Beautiful
Cranbrook." If any mau. woman
or child will stop and ltjok over the
town and the sur.'oundiiiL's. they
must lx- impressed with tin* magnificent beauty of the scene presented. In the early summer time
Cranbrook puts on her tfarb of
beauty, when tin- gross is green,
the Cottonwood and the tamarack
have come out in new dress, the
pine and fir assume a bright hue,
and the woods an* brilliant with
their tloral growth. Iu the even-
iugtide, its the sun is disappearing
beyond tlie Selkirks. the crimson
■ays bathe the snow capped peaks
)f the Koekies in irridesceut hues,
transforming them into (inures
carved from pure white marble
or delicately tinted alabaster. To
stand on the the fair ground hill to
the west at such a time, ond drink
in the beauty of the whole scene,
is to enjoy a si-^lit that will Im
remembered to one's dying day.
"Beautiful Cnmbrookl" Its name
was an inspiration of the writer
wlu-n there was little more hens
than grand mountains and the
pretty prairie Hat, lieforo progress
and pros|**er.ty had added handsome homes and a thriving business street. Beautiful it was then,
and still more beautiful is it now,
with the handiwork of man combined with the lavish ^ifts of nature.
Beautiful to the eye. beautiful in
sentiment, beautiful to the materialist in the peaceful contentment
and pleasing prosperity it affordBto
all who live within its confines. It
is no wonder that the inhabitants
love the town, and it is not strange
that those who visit the place, have
only solids of praise to sing ofter
they leave. A prettier town, a
letter climate, a more congenial
people, a brighter prospect cannot
lie found iu oil of this glorious
northwest. That is why Cranbrook is growing and that is why
she will continue to prow. Till*.   CUANIHtOOK   HERALD

low for roasting by the most approved automatic calciuers; with :
50 cents per ton [added for cos I ..I
hriipiftting   with   lime   ready   foi
smelting?     Curb ties   and   -In
ores do uot require roasting and
I in quetting. Next comes the
smelting costs in a water-jucketcd
furnace, though the improved
Swansea'reverberutory furunce can
be used by a mine with a small
daily output. Is nol $-.1.50 per lou
au ample charge to cover all expenses?
Till now we liuve said nothing ol
the a mount of lend contents ot the
mixture of ore used. Thirty |ier
cent lead is a good average fm* the
charge antl mixture in a custom
smelter. The lend now. as far as
as we have followed it. is in the
state of lend bullion currying the
gold and silver, the slag containing
less loss in lead, silver and gold
than was deducted for this purpose
from the parcel of ore. has been
.lisgarded. The utmost cost ol
desilverisiug a ton of lead bullion
by tne Parkes process can be put
at $12 per ton treated, but n ton
of lead bullion represents ->), tons
of.(() percent lead oivs neglecting'
smelter losses. Therefore refining
charges an a Ion of   ore  are  now
Now summarizing all these costs
we have the extreme cost oi: smelling a ton of HO per cent lend ore hi
Britisli Coliunbin us follows:
Sampling 8 1.00
Calcining sulphide ore 8 2.50
Briquetting same        50
Smelting S l..'iii
Refining S'l.oU
Totalcost 81*2. fo
Now comes the question of what
is a Ifgitnato profit to the smellers.
Then when freight  and  treatment
ar mjointly quoted what are thi
transportation companies getting,
By concentrating ores up to 110
Imt cent lead, our costs are im-
mensi'ly reduced per toil of ore
mined. Our capabilities of competing in the world's market (excluding the United States) with
fair freight rates are apparent to
any thinking man. A Btuleiuent
published before tlitl! 11 toil of lead
here cnn be mined, concentrated,
smelted nnd refilled ill a self-owned
plant, per ton for $80, equal to
alnnit £(J, has not been publicly
disputed, and this leaves tin* silver
nnd gold content*} a clear profit,
Wo all watch the London -,,,'itc

Walker, gouoml mtuuigor of ihr
Canadian Bank of Commerce, who
is in this cily iu connection with
Bunk of Commerce interests, when
asked if he believed the present
prosperity oE Canada would kcrp
up fur any length of timo, suitl:
"Two or three factors an* to Ih*
taken into consideration in viewing
this matter. One very important
one is the Iiiimi* situation us regards
strikes. Such events brin-^ tbo
cost of production up very high
and cannot tako placo without
checking prosperity. There is at
present, however, uo sign of a
diminution of goods or u docrenso
in lhe crop yield, und these are
both necessary in order to bring
about bad times."
When asked for liis opinion on
the labor situation, Mr. Walker,
after somo hesitation, declared that
il was almost impossible to form
any opinion, but he added: "If
unions were entirely reeogni'zetl
the price of labor would bo placed
so high that the world's output
would diminish um! a check to
prosperity would follow. But
after all the unrest of thr past
your, we muy huve a period of
prace now.
"All the reports which we hav*
hail from Ontario and thr west announce Ljood crops, and there is uo
reason why we should havo bad
times in the mar future. Money
is not so tight, but there is an idea
prevalent that wo should exercise
a little conservatism during thr
summer over the monetary situa.
lion. If we were not cautious now
wu would probably havr trouble it
the autumn.
"The country has very littlt
more money to give to industrial
enterprises. The limit has about
been reached, and thi' banks luivi
not much more to give to industries.
"The great check in prices on
thr slock exchange was vory necessary to thr country, although very
painful to individuals. Thr volume
of speculation everywhere was
excessive, nnd tlie slump whieh
followod was the only way to bring
about a normal condition,
"Thore were fur more poopl

Mini time again iu sending money

have been taught a lesson. There
is altogether too much stork speculation in all Canadian cities."
