Delayed Report of Last
Year's Output
Amount of Silver Slightly Decreased
but Advanced Prices More
Than Compensate.
Owing to the interruption of all nor-
mal business in various parts of California, and particularly in San Francisco, caused by the earthquake thatTe-
vasted that city last Bprlng, the report
of the United States Geological Survey-
on the production of gold and silver
during 1905 has been unavoidably delayed. It Is now, however, available
and will be of Interest to the whole
mining world, as It contains not merely
the statistics nl production but minute
and Interesting data concerning the derivation of the V'ld and silver product
from placers, fr ssi* dry or aillcious ores,
copper ores, lead ores, zinc ores, copper-lead or copper-lead-zlnc ores, and
lead-zinc ores.
The author of the report is Mr.
Waldemar Lindgren. The figures showing the production of gold and silver,
In approximate distribution by states
and territories, are tbe result of conference and adjustment between the Geological Survey and the bureau of the
mint, and are accepted as final by the
two bureaus. The total production of
gold was 4,205,742 fine ounces valued
iit $t8,_0,7000; the total productlou of
silver was 5*1,101 .COO fine ounces valued
at |34.22],97t;. making an entire total
value of $122.40*.\C70.
The production of gold In the United
States for 1905 represents an increase
ol gT.7IC.00o In value over the production ot 190. The rapid advance ln gold
production which begun In 1892, but
temporarily halted trom 1901 to 1903,
Was resumed in 1904. This increase in
1904 over the output of 1HI):I wns approximately 17,000,000 and In all probability the increase In 1900 over 1905
will be at least the same amount. The
chief sources of the grent Increase are
as follows:  Aluska added about $6,000,-
000 to Its output or $0,160,468 in 1904,
and Colorado, Kevada, and Utah added
ubout $1,000,000 each to their product
of the previous year. On the other hand.
decreases ure noted In Arizona Idltho.
and other states. The states producing
over $1,000,000 111 gold rank at present
III the following order: Colorado, California. Alaska. South Dakota, Nevada.
Utah, Montana, Arizona, Oregon and
The production of silver. In 1905 represents a decrease ol 1,521.500 ounces
1 iiuctttnl output, but In spite of this the
increase in tho average price of four
cents an ounce (from 57 cents in 1904
lo 01 cents in 1905) effected an addition to the value In 1904 of $765,952.
Two vears of better prices for silver
have 'thus far failed to stimulate the
production. The record figures were
attained In 1892. when the out put was
l*,:t 500.000 fine ounces, valued at $55.-
662,6000. A still further advance to a
maximum of somewhat over 70 cents
has taken place ln 1906, but lt Is not
likely that the year will show startling additions to ihe otiptit for 1905.
The Increase should be mon- marked In
1907, and will probably he rather derived from copper ores and dry slrver
ores than from lead ores.
The decrease lu the quantity ol silver Is especially noticeable In Colorado
and t'tnh: to a slight degree also in
Montana. On the other hand. Nevada
and Idaho materially increased Iheir
output. Tbe BtateB producing over
1 000,000 ounces rank ut present as fob
Iowb: Montana, Colorado. Utah, Idaho.
Nevada, Arizona and California.
The output ol gold anil silver In the
United States is ascertained by the Geological Survey bv the method of "11111108
report,* thai Is. by direct inquiry from
the producing mines, on the other
band, the bureau of the mini collects
Its tlatn concerning Ihe two metals by
recording the quantity and sources of
bullion deposlfs of the United StatcB
iniiii and assay offices, and by slate-
ments front the smelting and refining
establishments detailing the quantities
anil sources ssr tho meals produced. Statistics obtained by these different methods agree strikingly In Ihe totals for
the United States, but differ more or
less In detail. Reasons for this arc set
forth In the reporl.    	
Colorado Elections.
Denver, April 8.���All the cities and
towns of Colorado excepting Ilcnvor.
held municipal elections yesterday. The
most conspicuous resuli ls victory for
tin- uiitl-saloon element ln Cripple
Creek tho Demoorats regain control. In
l.snslvllle and Pueblo (ho Democrats
were also victorious. In Colorado
Springs tho Republican ticket won. In
the mountain towns where liquor selling was before the voters the saloon
element carried the day. During a
celebration at Central City, James A.
Gilmour, Democratic mayor elect,
dropped dead of apoplexy.
Discovery of Treasure  Responsible for
Extended Borders.
Toronto, April .').���**lf you want to
open up a country just make It clear
that there are large deposits of gold
there," suid Prof. A. P. Coleman in an
uddress yesterday afternoon on "Gold
and Empire." Ho stated that gold wits
one thing that did not change in value,
while others went up and down ln
value. The history of such a standard
had a very peculiar history. The moment the miner had struck gold he had
the value, for every ounce of gold was
worth $20.66 2-3 per ounce. There were
800 miles of New Ontario In which
gold was distributed.
Gold had several parts ln common
with the empire, said the speaker, but
Britain possessed a great deal of the
gold of the world and much of the expansion of the empire had been due
to the search for gold. For instance,
it was gold that first brought British
Columbia to the attention of the world.
The same thing was practically true
of the Klondike. In other parts of the
world, several of the important parts
of the empire had had their beginning
In gold fields. Australia was not really
fouud until the precious metal was
discovered there. Perhap Austrailia
would be of no account even yet had
It not been tor such mineral finds. In
reality lt was the gold fields that made
the changes tn South Africa, and out
of the little strip of country In the
Transvaal, :)B miles long and 10 miles
wide, more gold was produced loday
than In the whole of North America.
The British Umpire has been acquiring gold-bearing countries, but still
much of the gold did not always go to
Bnglnnd. There was more gold In banks
in Berlin, Paris and even St. Petersburg
than in the Bank of England.
Favors Creation of Permanent Council
for Consultation.
London, April 3.���In a forthcoming
number of -the National Review Lord
Mllner hns an article on the approaching colonial conference. Lord Milner
regrets that the descrpltlon "colonial"
ls still preferred to "Imperial," and
says three weeks every four years ls
not enough time to devote to settling
the affairs of the Empire. He believes
in the possibility of organising the
component parts of the Empire, as "for
certain purposes one body politic," and
says it Is evident that in the colonies,
especially Canada, perhaps, anything
looking to organized permanent consultation is regarded as an attempt to
Interfere with the workings of responsible governments. "We Brltsh Imperl-
iillstts," he adds, "will be better employed in removing tbe prejudices in
this country which prevent a response
to such overtures as the colonies are
prepared to make."
Toronto Board of Trade Resolutions to
to be Sent to Dominion- and Provincial Premers.
Toronto, April 3.���That the present
system of appointments to the civil services In Canada ls unsound ln principle
and does not secure tbe highest standard of efficiency In the performance of
duties involved, is the opinion of the
board of trade as contained In a resolution passed yesterday nt a meeting of
the council.   The resolution read*.
"That the board of trade of Toronto
urge upon the federal parliament and
the provincial legislatures to adopt
measures having for their object the
placing of the Canadian civil services
on a non-political basis, and to make
merit and ability the sole tests for entering such service and for advancement therein."
Copies or it will be sent to Sir Wilfrid Laurler, to Hon. J. P. Whitney and
to the leading boards of trade.
The board is also very desirous that
the resolution adopted ot the meeting
of the chambers of commerce of the
Empire held In London last year regarding the need of closer commercial
relations between the Mother Country
nnd her colonies and dependencies
should beb rought into effect at the
colonial conference, which opens next
month. The resolution urged that each
organization thero represented Impress
upon their respective governments that
such steps should be taken at the colonial conference as will bring the spirit
of the resolution Into effect. A copy
of this will ho forwarded lo tho premier
at Oitawa.

Ponta Del Gada, Island of St. Michael's, Azore Islands, April 3.���Violent
eathquake shocks prevailed throughout
this Island during the night. Tbe
worst disturbance occurred at Villa
Franca, where the panic-stricken people
fled to the outskirts of the town. The
wealthier inhabitants are leaving Villa
Franca, the ancient capital of St.
Michaels, which was twice previously
destroyed by volcanic eruptions, being
practically swallowed up by an eiitp

the Azores and Ponta Del Gada is the
principal city of St. Michaels and com
merclal capital of the Azore Islands. It
Is well built, Is situated on a plain ex-
tending about two miles along tbe shore
and in 1890 contained, Including the
suburbs, about 15,00 inhabitants. The
tsswti of Villa Franca Is of considerable
importance. Three and one-half miles
north is a crater named Lagoa De Fo-
go, with 15 fathoms of water ln it.
Villia Franca Ib situated 14 miles eaBt
of Ponta Del Gada and in 19UU had a
population of 7,500.
Big Cobalt Property Has Paid Owners
16 Par Cent to Date.
Ottawa, April 3.���On the $6,000,000
capitalisation of the Nipisslng, the 3
per cent dividend will require the expenditure of 1180,000. President Earle
states that the company has ample
funds to pay this, as it has cash on
hatjd and ore ln transit nnd at the smelter amounting to jr.uO.mn).
The 1120,00 saved by the discontinuance of the extra 2 per cent dividend
will be spent in extensive prospecting,
developing the surface and the interior
workings of the mine, and erecting
buildings for the accommodation of
about COO more men to be employed at
the mines.
Thc record of dividends declared by
Nipisslng since its inception ls as follows: June 20th, 1906, initial dividend
of 3 per cent; Sept. 20th, 1906, 3 per
cent and an extra dividend of 2 per
cent; on Dec. 20th, 1906, also 3 per

Anglo-American Syndicate Experimenting In Labrador.
Quebec, April 3.���Several English
and American scientists have been -engaged In the Iron deposits for the paat
two years, experimenting by the aid of
electricity 10 discover If titaniferous
substances can be removed from iron,
and thUB remove the only obstacle to
the development of the largest iron ore
deposits In the world.
These experiments, especially on the
Labrador coaat, have been carried on
in secret, and It is said that the scientists so engaged have met with so much
success that they are sanguine that
Ihe smelting of iron ore by means of
electricity, which includes the removal
of titanium, is possible, if not yet an
accomplished fact, and they have stopped their operations In order to report
the succesB of their efforts to their
brokers, and give the latter an opportunity to form a company and secure
Irond lands with all the mining rights
trom the government.
The foregoing information was Imparted to your correspondent by a gentleman, who is well known as a prospector and traveller of experience ln the
Hudson Bay territory and the Lahra-
dors, but who refused to make known
his identity. He said If It succeeds tt
will make Canada the greatest Iron producer fn the world.
Blaze in New York Threatens Live* of
Men Working Underground���
None Killed.
New York, April 3���Flre caused by
a spark from one of thc boiler rooms
In the excavation for the McAdoo Tunnel terminal, Fulton and Church streets

and a delay of 30 days In the completion of the work on the huge terminal

during the flre by being caught in one
of the deep caissons, two of them so-
severely that it was necessary to take
thorn to a hospital. The first started on
a high wooden structure midway be-
tween Dey and Cortlandt streets, used
to support a hoisting engine. By the
rime the flro apparatus arrived the
shower of sparks and embers from the
burning boiler house had set fire to a
dozen other boiler houses and similar
structures in the excavation. These
together with several big derricks were
badly burned and the temporary wooden flooring over the surface of Dey

There wore many thrilling rescues
and several instances ot personal bravery during the progress of the 'fire.
Deep down under the ground in the 100
or more caissons which are being sunk
for the foundations of the big terminal
buildings to rest upon were between
GOO and 600 men at work. When tt
was seen that there was danger of the
flre spreading to all of the engine
houses south of Dey street, shutting off
the supply of air, the pressure of which
enabled the men to work underground,
and the withdrawal ofwhicn would mean
serious danger ir not death to many of
them, the danger signal was given and
the buckets lowered into the cessions
to bring the tunnel workers to the surface. Around) some of the derricks
used to lower and hoist the buckets tho
flames raged fiercely, and ln two Instances, the men In charge of the donkey hoisting engines lost tholr nerve
and deserted their posts, leaving the
men 80 feet beneath tho surface of the
ground to their fate. The deserted
hoists were quickly remanned by volunteers, however, and the new men
stuck to their posts with the flames
roaring around them until the last one
of tho tunnel workers was brought up
to safety.

"What Is the sense of oraatlng u university before tiny provision has been

has proved a myth, what ls left tor the

Tho Socialist opposition to the establishment and endowment ssf a pro.

these tenets from all well-educated peo-

for us to quite understand why the official representatives in Itritish Columbia of the new religion, should so bitterly oppose the provision of the means
of onllghtment. It is just possible that
Mr. Hawthornthwaite is intelligent

APRIL 3,  1007.
Hon. H. K. Emmerson. Dominion minister of railways, has tendered his resignation and il has boen accepted.
The resignation is publicly stated tu
be for the purpose of affording the ex-
minister freer and better opportunity
for seeking legal redress from those
who, he alleges, have slandered him,
and he promises to take action at once
against several  newspapers.
Such explanations and promises are
familiar, lt Is extremely unlikely thut
any such action will be taken or that
any more will be heard or Mr. Emui'i
son by the public of Canaila for some
time. It is not very long since lhe lion

Mr. Emmerson's downfall is ths- Ural

assailants, concluding with his *.* ft I
ence to *'wlne, women and graft."
lt Is a remarkable thing that Can-
ada's general views on morality should
be so distorted as they are. The distortion is not quite confined to Canada.
but lt seems to reach its climax in this
country, lt is probably a survival of
Puritan superstition  and hypocrisy.
Charges of wholesale dishonesty, almost amounting to emiKZzieiuent were
made and maintained against the 'le*
partments of both Mr. Sifton and Mr.
Emmerson. The charges werb of course
never proved, the Liberal majorities on
the committees could he safely trusted
to prevent that.
Uut charges of embezzlement, of
wholesale stealing from the nation, are
not considered, apparently, as reflecting upon the "personal honor" of a minister, and is never considered as serious
enough to call for the resignations
those accused.
But let a public man be accused of
one act uf personal Impropriety in a
ci rlaln relation and there Is an outburst of virtuous Indignation f10iu
ocean to ocean.
There is apparently only one commandment which it is an unpardonable
sin to break.
Of the proportionate consequences to
the public interest of the two classes
of offences there is no comparison. A
minister's private Improprieties affect
very few; his dishonesty or protection
of dishonesty affects lhe whole country,
lttn the latter hardly raises a protest
while the former means the end of a
career, however brilliant Its promise.
lt is well that the standard of personal purit yam! honor should be high:
well, perhaps, that it sliould be especially insisted upon for ministers of the
crown. Hut surely it would be well also
tor Canadians to remember that there
are ten commandments, not one, and
that a thief, or protector of thieves, is
at least as great a blot on the national
honor, and a far greater menace to the
national interest, than one whose steps
aside affect only a few.

The great analytical mind uf J. A.
McDonald has surely suffered eclipse.
Within a fortnight he has been guilty
of two obvious Citisstateiiients. antl
eaoh was vital to his whole argument.
In the debate on the Better Terms resolution Mr. Macdonald asked lf It were
not an unheard of thing that any party
sshuuld seek the judgment of a court
which he was not prepared to accept.
Mr. Macdonald has been a legal practitioner for several years. It ls strange
that he has never heard of an appeal
from the judgment of one court to a
higher court. On the later debate on
the bill to endow the provincial university Mr. Macdonald has attempted, in
his own peculiarly unhappy way, to
ridicule the idea of endowing a university whose existence ia shadowy. Before voting any land he wants to know-
where the univerBlty is to be, where
lite lands are to he selected, and even
who is to be in charge of it. Possibly

I, 1 . rWKDWXKu,
hated this li'th dny of February, mn
Sketch   of  Mr.   Bourassa,   Member  for
Labelle, Leader of Canada'a
Third Party.
A member wllh a Bolld majority of
more than a thousand at hla back can
be quite independent of the party machine so far as the holding of his aeal
Is concerned. That Is the position of
Mr. Bourassa of Labelle, who has been
again ln the public eye this week. "1
very much doubt," said an eleclor of
l.abelle, " if there is a man In Canada
who could defeat Mr. HouraBsa, not
even the prime minister."
Kver since Mr. i'oui-iiBBa entered
parliament in lftHO he has. on the whole,
Kline his own way, and his majority has
gone up from 469 to 1493. The people
of Labelle like him and believe ln hlm;
and so In the house he can speak his
own mind without fear or favor. He
can speak it, too, with great clearness
and force and with dramatic effect that
even the eloquent Laurler cannot excel.
Mr. Ilourassa's appearance is all ln his
favor, marking him at once as a man
of parts and of culture. The thick,
closely cropped head of black hair, the
carefully trimmed, black Shakespearian beard, the olive complexton, and
bright, twinkling eye, remind one of the
portrait of a French or perhaps an
Italian artist. A stranger who should
take him for an artist would not he
wholly wrong for he ls no stranger to
brush and easel. It has been said by
way of Jocular disparagement that
among artists Mr. Bourassa is regarded
as a politician, and among politicians
as an artist. However that may be he
has certainly been occupying a very
conspicuous place on the parlimentary
stage this season. If at times he Ib a
thorn in the side of hlB old Liberal
associates, it is seldom that he brings
any comfort to the opposition. Public
Interest in him has now reached the
point of wondering what he Is going to
do next.
The Men Behind the Shears Who Make
the Faahlona for Men.
The man In thc West who visits the
East today Umls his clothes ln the prevailing style. This uniformity of style
l-i due to Semi-ready tailoring. From
coast to coast the styles prevailing each
season are close copies of the designs
prepared by the president of the Semi-
ready Company six months ahead of
tile time when the public first sees
them. Styles In Canada are neither
American nor British, but have distinctive features of their own. The New

Charles H. Gibbons, one of the best-
known newpaper meu In British Columbia, has abandoned the down-trodden
press and left for Australia. He will
have charge of Albani's tour ln the Antipodes and will be absent several
months. The Colonist, referring to Mr.
Gibbon's tour, says his salary Is larger
than was ever before given to a Canadian for such work and that it is the
most extensive managerial tour ever
undertaken by a Canadian. Several
New York and Chicago men, who were
available for the work, were passed
over and a Victorian was chosen. Mi.
Gibbons is an excellent newspaper man.
As a judge of what news is he has few
equals. He writes with great facility
and has the particular quality whicli
is required by a synoptic reporter of
speeches. This is perhaps bis strongest, line in journalistic work. His faculty of Observation is very highly developed, and his oxtt ntdve tour, much of
which will be through lands rarely vis

will undoubtedly afford him opportunities, of which he will know how to
make the best use.
