Year's Copper Production,
The Boston News Bureau bus figured
out Ihnt thq production of copper In
the United States, .Mexico and Canada
lor the month of January of this year,
was 12,361,267 pounds leas thnn thai of
January mini, lis figures are: January,
1908. 97,296,40(1 pounds; January, 1907,
*4,9.16,143 pounds. The decrease was
chiefly in Montana and Canada. Floods
interfered somewhat wllh Arizona production but the Copper Queen smelter
produced 9,500.000 pounds In January,
an Increase of 1,800,0110 pounds over
January, 1906, which overcame somewhat the falling off In other camps In
-Arizona. This Increase in Copper Queen
production is partly explained by the
tact that over 1,000,090 pounds of matte
'rom tho Detroit Copper Co. were
treated at Douglas, the Detroit plant
toeing out of commission that month.
The production In Utah and Canada
was reduced nearly one half, largely by
reason of tho severe weather and acute
fuel conditions, but at tho most this
fulling off Id copper production In these
two districts amounted to only about
G.ooo.uou pounds, while the Increase In
Mexican production largely offset tho
'ailing off in Utah and Canada.

Material  Long Considered Waat*  Now
Known to Contain Recoverable
Mineral  Wealth.
Among the forthcoming publications
of the United Slates Geological survey
will be one by Dr. David T. Day and
Prof. Robert H. Richardson entitled
"Useful Minerals In the Black Sands
of the Pacific 8lope," which Ib the result of an investigation authorixed, by
Congress March 3, 1906.
In the beginning of the Investigation
a circular letter was sent to all the
placer miners In the United States
whoso addresses were known, about
8,000 In all, authorizing them to send
ln samples of the black sands obtained
by them up to 14 pounds for eaeh sam
pice. Tho examination of theae samples, partly ln Boston, Mass., and partly In Partland, Ore., showed that the
following minerals, In the order named,
are most commonly found tn these
sands. Magnetite, ilmenlte, gold, xlcron,
garnet, olivine, and Iron silicates, py-
rlte. chromlte. platinum, Irldoamlum,
monzalte cinnabar, corundum, and cas-
slterite. Other heavy minerals are only
very exceptionally found.
In this report the expression "black
sand" ls used to embrace the residual
sands left In the concentrating placer
gravels; not merely the heavy materials left ln the sluice boxes In plaoer
mining, but also the black sands left
by the concentrating action of waves
and Ihe natural concentration products
of stream action.
In order to determine what minerals
could he Included under the title "Useful .Minerals" In these black Bands. it
was neressary to determine how readily they could be separated from one
another by the varioun methods of con-
centratlon. As a result it waa found
thnt with careful sizing It Is posalble
to separate gold and platinum from
thesu Bnnds with comparative ease and
with small expense by the use of con-
centratlng machines of the shaking
table class, and that partial separation
of the various othor minerals can be
made at the same time, ao aa to render
available for thc market at a low coat
monazlte, zlcron, ilmenlte, chromlte,
garnet and cassllerlte.

Mr and Mra. J. Laing Stocks Baok from
Scotland after Long Visit.
J. Laing Blocks and Mrs. Stocks returned laat evening from a visit to
Klrkaldy, Scotland. Mr. Stocks left Nelson a few weeks before Christmas, and
most of the time since haa heen spent
visiting his mother at Kirkcaldy. She ta
now 88 yeara of age and anjoyed the
visit of Mr. and Mrs. Stocks exceedingly. Mr. Stocks was pleased to note
that the people In the old land are getting a better Idea of this country than
they had when be last visited Scotland,
six years ago. and It will not be his
fault If they do not know more about
British Columbia than thoy did three
or four months ago. He bad prepared
several picture alleles ot Kootenay fruit
and delivered two lectures on the fruitgrowing possibilities Of the interior���
one at 'Kirkcaldy and the other as Glasgow. As a result of these lectures Mr.
Stocks was besieged with Inquiries regarding the Interior of British Columbia and Its future from a fruit-producing point of view. One man, who had
a son who contemplated coming out
here to engage In the grult growing,
travelled 26 miles ln an automobile to
get all the Information he could on the
subject. This Is only one of the many
instances that came under the observation of Mr. Stocks' which Induced the
conclusion that there will be many new
settlers from Ue old country within the
next year. On the boat coming out
were a great number who were going to
the Northwest to lake up land. Mr.
and Mrs. eureka enjoyed their visit
very much, twit -Sre delighted to get
back to the Kootenays.

New Lork, March 22.���The ��tatun of

Fitzgerald with affidavits of aeven alienists who substantiate his expressed
opinion that the prisoner ls Insane and
Incapable of consulting bis counsel as
to hie defence against the charge of

this: By 2 o'clock tomorrow the attorneys for the defence must file affidavits answering Mr. Jerome's assertion and his uflldavits. The district attorney has not formally moved the appointment of a commission to examine
Into Thaw's present menta' condition
but has left It to the consclunce of tho
court, as he expressed It on Wednesday,
to decide whether the caae should go to
the jury, so Justice Fitzgerald will consider the affidavits submitted by each
side and Inform the counsel when to appear ln court to hear his decision. He
may more than weigh the contents of
the affidavits, for he may call for moro
evidence before he makes up his mind
what procedure Is advisable. In particular he may seek the opinion of Dr.
Allan McLean Hamilton, the alienist,
who, when called to the stand by the
defence on Wednesday, evoked District
Attorney Jerome's statement se to
Thaw's mental state, and brought about
the present condition of the case.
Should Justice Fitsgerald do this, the
defence is certain to strive to exclude
Dr. Hamilton's testimony on the
grounds of professional privilege, ln
which he was engaged by the defence
to examine Thaw, and did so shortly
after White's tragic death. In all this
the jury will have no part, although lt

Amuse British Public.
"Piccadilly," ln the San Francisco
Argonaat, gives the following account
of tbe English suflraglsts' raid on the
"The invading forces sent an advance
guard of two hundred women, headed
by Mrs. DeBpard, who is the slater of
General French, the well-known cavalry
leader. They sang as they went, and
the nature of their melody may be
judged from a single verse:
Uinu up, women!  for the tight Is hard
and long;
Rise in thousands, singing loud a battle
song. <
Right is might, and in Its strength we
shall be strong,
And the cause goes marching on.
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, halleujah!
Glory, glory, hallenjah!
But the cause goes marching on.
On arriving at Westminster the women were warned by the police, but
they disregarded the admonition to go
home and behave themselves. The police tried to disperse them and failed.
Then some mounted men forced their
way through and through tbe demonstrators, breaking them up, and trying
to scatter them, but the women simply
dodged the horses and re-formed still
nearer to tbelr goal. Then at laat and
when everything else had failed, tbe
police laid forcible hand upon the reformers, dragging them back Into tbe
road and throwing them about with
some violence. Mrs. Despard -was the
flrst to be arrested, and she at least can
have no complaint, as It was the desire
of her hesrt to be a martyr to the cause,
and she had been grievously disappointed upon the occasion of the previous
raid. Altogether about fifty were arrested amid scenes of Indescribable confusion, and from the throng of many
thousands of persons who bad been attracted by so extraordinary a scene.
Some of the prisoners submitted with a
good grace. Othere were Indignant, defiant, or sarcastic. "Tak, tbs 'ands off
me," cried one sturdy lady from Lancashire. " Ah dunna want to be touched by such Angers a* thine. Another
captive Bald, "Vou lay a hand on a
woman and, mark my words, It'll come
back to you some day," Others shouted
"Cowards, to strike a woman!" The
police upon ooeaslona showed a marked
facility for repartee. Ono defiant little
lady was advised to go home to her
mother and learn to darn socks, but as
a rule tbe arguments were more forcible. At least seven women received
bruises, some of them severe.
"Tbe scene at the police court In the
morning was an Interesting one. Mrs.
Chatterton refused to stand up on the
ground that she was tired, and the magistrate judiciously excused her, but ss
she refused to withdraw when her case
wbb put back, she had to be carried out
bodily by a burly policeman, murmuring as she waa carried away, "Thin is
just lovely." Miss Seruya, a graceful
young lady, openly chuckled at the grim
policeman wbo testified that Bhe had
Biruck him with ber clinched list.
"What?" said Miss Seruya. "I only
struck you with this mult, although It
certainly did have a book Inside It."
"It seemed like a clinched fist," exclaimed the magistrate; "twenty shillings or fourteen days." "Oh, the fourteen days, of course," remarked the defendant sweetly, as she stepped off to the
coveted martyrdom. Miss Olivia Smith
was equally amusing. She waa accused
of "pushing and shoving about," and In
her defense she said, "I had already
shoved one horse off the footpath, and
the policeman said, 'There's another
there; go and shove that'; so not liking
to disobey I went and did ao." Forty
shillings or a month for her. Mrs.
Sanders, the delicate and fragile wife
of Alderman Sanders, was accused of
striking a burly policeman, and convulsed the court by tenderly enquiring
of tlle aggrieved minion of tbe law lf
she had hurt him. The majority of the
defendants were fined twenty shillings
or fourteen days; half a dozen were
asked to pay forty shillings! or go to
prison for a month, while a few escaped with a fine of ten shillings or seven
days In durance vile. All the prisoners,
with the exception of two, elected to
go to prison snd were duly removed to
Hallowsy gaol, where their sufferings
will not be very scute In view of the
welcome and demonstration that will
-certainty attend their release- It will
lie a long time before tbo women's raid
upon the houso of common? Is forgotten, even If It is not repeated, as it
most probably will be."

MAUCH 33. 1907.
The triumphant rcpiy of Canadian
Liberals 10 ail questions as to the loyalty of Sir Wilfrid Laurier 10 the Brit-
iiii Empire and to British ideals, has
always been to point to the way be has
been received in London, and how he
has besn praised by an almost unanim-
., t- British press. They must find a
new reply.
It is true that in 1^97 when he, as
premier uf Canada. a/t��nded the Dia-
ir.siid J'ibliee. he was received with an
enthusiasm tbat was not aroused by
an>  other colonial premier.
The reasons were, or should have
been, obrloua. It was flattering to the
vanity of the British people to receive
;i French premier of Canada; It was an
dcque.it tribute to British colonial ad-
isimis-tr.ilion and to the virtues of the
r.ice that in 150 years a conquered pes>
rile had been so thoroughly assimilated
i!ar a Frenchman whose KagUbh .:: ���n-
���niiB'akeab'.y an alien icugu i to h':u,
should rise 10 leadership In a great,
young nation. So the British at home
w -re very complacent and petted Sir
Wilfrid as they would have petted a
Hal si premier of New Zealand or a
Kaffir premier of the Cupe or Natal.
He had also list) lhe good fortune to
is vs pm a llriiish peference clause In
the Canadian tariff the fW before. The
jsli 1 wsi borrowed from Sir Charles
*rii-,.--.iT 'lbe preference was bo ar-
rung id liy Mr. K-k-ldlng as 10 be almost
worthless But John -Bull was not ln a
critical inood Ihen. 80 Mr. l-itnirler be-
-.inns' Sir Wilfrid, and the good, h*rm-
is'Hs. Inn hopelessly Illogical people of
tlie Cobdcn Club, to show their apprecl.
_itlon of his retaining Sir John A. Mac-
Donald's protective tariff, gave hlm a
jisedul for his Hdvoeaey of free trade.
Bul many things huve huppened since
then.    Except  In moments ot national
enjoyment and enthusiasm, British
statesmen and British journalists are
keen observers. It was with pained surprise thst they saw. in 1489, that Canada was last of tbe colonies to offer aid
in tbe South African war. and that
even the offer of a mere handful of nn-
trained soldiers, who. incidentally, hail
to get their pay and all expenses from
the home government, had to be forced
on Sir Wilfrid Laurier by the Impassioned apiieal of Sir Charles Tupper to
tbe  people of Canada.
British Liberals tried to explain Sir
Wilfrid's tardiness and obvious reluctance by his extreme reverence for the
But since 1*99 there bave been two
colonial conferences. At each Mr. Chamberlain presided as colonial secretary,
and nearly ali the delegates were In
sympathy with his Ideals of Greater Britain, and of closer union among the nations of the Empire for greater prosperity and progress in peace, and greater effieieney in war.
There was but one stumbling block,
Sir Wilfrid Laurler ruder the pretence that Canada's tariff could nol be
Bubject to change, and lhat her people
were so opposed to militarism that they
could not be Induced to think of preparation for war. be refused to discuss
any practical suggestions in either direction.
Now, on Ihe eve of another conference, the enlightened English know
that that only unanimous expressions
from the colonies could avail 10 disturb the slumbers of the Little Engenders at Westminister. They know,
too, that there will be no unanimous expression from the colonies, and they
know that the only bar to unanimity Is
the narrow race bigotry of the once
petted and flattered French premier of

In nothing is a little learning so
dangerous a thing as in political history and philosophy. It is delicious to
be told that a law restricting the hours
of labor in any occupation is preeminently a radical measure. In Great Hritain all the early measures of that na
ture were passed by Conservative ministers against the interest,and of course,
therefore, the opposition of the manufacturing class, who were Whig or Uberal to a man. A very brief glance at
the history of the lives of Canning. Peel
or Huskisson. to go no farther back.

at the instance ot Bismarck. The "man

While the lunacy commission appointed by Justice Fitzgerald is examining into Harry K. Thaw's mental condition, might it not be well to extend
lis functions and have- it report generally on the administration of criminal
Jaw in the I'nited States, and the public opinion that demands daily details
of revelations that are disgusting?
Apropos of the plea of insanity entered In Thaw's case, we are reminded
of a judge's charge in respect of a similar plea entered in a Canadian court. Sir
John Boyd was on the bench. After ex.
plaining the plea, he said to the jury:
"Gentlemen, that is the kind of insanity
lhat you and I are here to cure." The
whole story, Evelyn Thaw's life and
that of all the others concerned, and
the proceedings at the trial, are a disgrace to American law and society.
"The Conservative party with a muzzle off," our esteemed contemporary
thinks is "a good expression and likely
to stick." It will, if parroMUe repetition can make it. Such "good expressions" have been the only stock In
trade of Hritish Columbia Li!��*rals for
many years. We fall to see either wit
0/ point in the expression. The government has made many concessions
this session to both Liberals and Socialists which It refused la.st year when
It was "the r.bedienr Blave of the Socialists." The press that perH3t.s in such
nonsfnse, which is so obviously contrary to the truth, shows little respect
for  public intelligence.
The Transvaal government has decided to follow the example of Natal
and exclude Asiatics from the country.
The British government has already
disallowed such an act once in the
Transvaal, and now Lord Elgin will
have another opportunity to offend a
colony. Whether the permanent exclu*
sion of whole races from any country
is jusUfiaMe is a very large question,
and may be answered variously according to the point of view. Whether it Is
possible or not a few decades may tell.
Three-fifths of the world's population
consists of Asiatics.
We congratulate Dr. Hall on his

Frenchman  Who   Puizled   Dottora   by
Rem��rk��blt Tr��n��formationi and
Strange  Powera,
Parla, March 21.���One of the most
original music-hall characters, known as
La Pendu," or the man who used to
bang hliiiBi'lf, has Just died at Bolliea
Point, near Toulon. HU real name Is
Simeon Alguter and he was born at
SIllleB Villa, In 1851. Unlike Fregoll,
who Imitates various personages by
Budden changes of clothes he could ln
u way trauform bis body and poBseBsed
partialis the most curious physical
adaptabilities ever known.
When a young man he surprised and
puzzled the army doctors. As he presented himself for physical examination
he appeared a thin, spare-ribbed fellow,
almost a skeleton, and before the examination waB over he stood ln the
presence of an army doctor wltb an enormously Inflated abdomen, as if he had
the dropsy. While the physician was
examining this abnormal development
the abdomen suddenly retreated and a
big bloated tumor suddenly grew on the
young man's throat as if he had an lm*
mouse goitre. He had apparently transferred the swelling from the lower part
of hla body to his throat. When the
examination was over, he stood there a
skeleton like young fellow as before.
His gifts tn bodily transformation
soon became known all over his native
district and he waB soon induced to
show himself on the music hail stage.
Far a long time he was known as the
skeleton man, though he exhibited himself as tbe fat man. His physical transformations did not stop here. He was
able to imitate the process of dying and
of death to perfection.
Scientists and the members of various medical faculties often wished to
examine his strange methods, but he
constantly refused to divulge the secret
of his transformations. When he imitated the state of a dead person he
threw himself Into a perfect coma. Ills
bear! apparently ceased to beat, and thc
most expert physicians are said to have
been unable to detect the slightest
movement of his pulse. They went as
far as to apply various instruments to
detect life without success, and even
though the stethBCope was brought Into
{ play not the slightest action of the
heart could he detected. The most expert doctors would have declared him
dead, and yet In the next instant he
woald jump up tod crack jokes and be
as much alive as anyone.
His last trick, and the one which Itept
Sii'llenc^s spellbound wae *hen ho used
to httiig himself by the neck with a cord.
There was no mere lhake believe about
it. He Would hang himself, or allow
himself tS be hanged from a nail in the
ceiling in the presence of a large audience. The rope would fasten rr- 6
his throat, his muscles would stiffen
and the frightened public would see him
go through every one of the phases of a
man who was actually hung. This
ghastly spectacle waB flrst. exhibited in
a babaret an Montm&rte and desipte its
horrors or rather on account of them it
had a great success.
A story ls told of how he once played
a trick ln a hotel where he was stopping. He hung himself from the ceiling
after ringing the bell and when the
waiter entered he was horrified by the
Bight and rushed down stairs to Inform
lite proprietor. Before they returned to
tht room the man who waa supposed
tu bave hanged himself had taken up
hl�� valise and met them quietly on the
Although it might have been expected
that some day he would hang himself ln
real earnest such a calamity never befell hlm- He died of a most commonplace llli.'ess, the grippe, at his home
near Touhon where he bad retired after
earning a considerable fortune on thc
stage. He never divulged the secret of
how he produced the extraordinary rigidity of the muscles of the neck when
be used to perform his feats nf hanging
and carried ths mystery with him to tbe
grave. Doctors proposed to perform an
autopsy upon his body with the idea of
finding out thc secret if possible, but
bis family refused to permit it.

Trivial Incident by Which Mineral Water Became Famoua.
T. P. O'Connor, M. P.. who on his recent  visit to   this  country   met   with
great  success  in raising  funds to increase the influence of lreluhd in the
British parliament, tells an interesting
story, in  his London Weekly, to illustrate how great oaks from little acorns
grow.    He  had   been   resting   up  and
taking the waters of the Spa at Neu-
cnahr, a resort In Germany, which he
describes aa restful, quaint and beautiful.    Like  all   others  who   Uke   the
cure af Ketienahr he  paid   a visit  to
the Apolollinarls spring,  which is not
distant.    He describes the studied care
with which  Apollinaris ia bottled and
the springs large volume of natural carbonic gas, a constituent, which, according to medical men, greatly improves
digestion; then he tells how, -some 30
years ago. the capital was secured from
the late Mr. Stelnkopff, who owned the
St. James Gazette,    and the late  Mr.
Smith, the head of the great publishing
firm of Smith k Elder, to exploit the
Apollinaris spring on a large scope. It
appears that a famous English surgeon
who travelled a great deal and generally brought back something Interesting from his tours, put on his table one
evening a bottle of Apollinaris, a water
which he had tried and liked during a
trip to Germany.    Mr. Smith and Mr.
Stelnkopff liked the water, and thus the
bottle which figured in this little dinner
conversation was the origin of the gigantic London company, whose shareholders number thousands, and whose
Income has reached many millions of
pounds sterling.
