Canada'* Mining Industry.
In a review beaded "Canada Since
Confederation," a journal publiilied at
Montreal and Toronto called " Hardware
and Metal," sizes np the mining industry
in the following manner:
" In the development of our miaenl
resource* the progres* ha* net n*en at
marked a* ths character of th.se resources ��airanted; but. as o.aiyouc ia aware,
the prospect* in thia respect were never
ao^bright a* they are to-day, what with
the gold field* of Kootenay, the Klondike and Ontario promising as they do.
At th* tame time, however, th* production iu both 1S95 and 18M) is a grtat
deal abev* thc average of previous years.
In the latter year the production oi
metallic, non-metallic and sundry metal*
wu valued at (33,627,305, or over 91 per
cent. abov�� th* averag* ef th* thrae
year* ef 1880-7-3.
" It will thus be seen thst, notwith-
stsoding the comparatively littlo dcfol-
opmeut of (he mine* that is going on,
the villi*, of the output already txcaeds
that of th* fisheries. What it will b* in
mother year or two no one can say. but
that th* output of gold alou* will, before
loug, exceed in value last year's yield ot
miuarals oi all kind* is aot at all
improbable Our export* of minerals
last year were valued at (8,650,430, compared with (0,SO*1,970 worth in 1891.
Coal ie the most valuabl* of our exports
of minerals, as it is also in the matter of
production, and the increase iu th*
quantity since confederation ha* been
gradual, until last year it reached 1,102,-
007 tons, as against 295,335 tens ia 1888."
which it forms two-thirds, ia *!*ctrieal
conductors, shut roofing, cooking
uteu.il* snd pipes,
Just what beceoiMof th* enormous
amount of metal miaed *very vear i* a
mystery, *��� a very snail proportion is
retarne.1 in th* form ol israe mateaiat.
Mineral Aot Amendment.
Under the heading of "Which is
Right?" the Rossland Times says:"Last
week we pubsished the Mineral Claim
Advertisement Act, 1893, which was
brought in by the Minister ef Mines for
the sole purpose of validating thos*
crown grants which, had beta issued to
mineral claim* that had been advertised
contrary to the wording ol th* Mineral
Act, which specified that each mineral
claim applying ior a (town grant must
be advertised separately. Ia many instances in this camp two er more claims
were bunched in one advertisement, and
these applications were not valid. Today's morning paper says a group of
claims may be advertised ss one, but the
copy of the Mineral Claim Advertisement Act, 1898," which we have in this
office sayH: ' Hereafter the said subsection shall be construed as requiring
tlie separate publication of a copy of a
notice in respect ol each mineral
This act was passsd in order to make
valid a number of certificates of improvement issued, under which Justice Drake
recentlv decided to be a misunderstanding of the mining law. It seems that
partie* holding separate claims have
been in thc habit of joining them io one
advertisement of intention te apply lor
certificate of improvement,when, according te Justice Drake there should be a
separate advertisement for each claim,
This decision haa apparently made
defects in title which have pet a stop to
many negotiations, and the object ol the
act is to remove any such esfects, while
providing that separate advertisements
will bu required iu future.
What Become* of Metals t
The greater portion at tbs Ind mined
is converted into whit* lead, red bad
and orange materials which are ustd as
pigments lor paints. Much lead is manufactured into sheet, some into bullets
and other projectiles, and the oily Uad
which comes back int* ths market ia
the form ol scrap is that used lor lead
Zinc is largely nsod la galvaniring
atsel * or iron, in manufacturing brass,
as a sheet sine, and a* elide of sine need
in paint. The only sine available for the
new nee 1* that nsed in making brass.
Next to scrap iron and steel, scrap bra**
is found en the market.
Most ef th* world'* tin product is nsed
in tia plates. The scrap is not available
and, though many efforts have been
made to utilize tin scrap, no considerable amount of metal hss been obtained
this way.
Next to iron and steel, copper is most
used ia metallic form, only a small proportion being used in th* salts of copper
and kluo vitrol. The groat mass of copper *,rc iv the aunufxcturlng of bran, oi
The Remedial Use* of Apple*,
Ii ell temperate cliasates th* apple
grows freely and might b* ebtaiaed in
practically nsliinitsd quaatitie*. That
it is nbt more used than it i* is probably
dae to th* fact that, being *o pltnty, it
is undervalued. Yet'almost evervene
like* tlie irnit tn some fashion, and it
should form a part ef at least two meal*
out *< *v*ry tbre* during th* year round;
for even when th* fresh fruit is aot in
season, c��nue-l, dri*d er "evaporated'
applea mav be always had.
" Cbessically," savs a writer la the
North American Fractilion.r, "the apple
is composed oi vegstebl* fibre, alkumea
sugar, gum, shloropbyl, malic acid, gallic
acid, lime and water. Furthermore, the
German analyst* say that th* apple coa-
taias e larger perce*tage el phosphors*
than any ether fruit* er vsgstable. The
phuephai'ou* is admirably adapted ior
renewing tlie esMutial nervous aiatter���
lecithin-oi th* brain and (piaal cerd.
it is perhaps (or this reason���though but
rudely uudei stood���that th* eld Sean-
dinaviao tradition* represent the apple
as the food of the gods, who, wh.a they
fell tlieaasel.es to be growing f**ble and
infirm, resorted to this fruit to renew
tlieir luluds and tody."
Not only the phosphorus, but tbe acids
of tlie apple are el aiagular use (or
poraoas of sedentary habits, wheee livers
are apt to be too slow el action. The**
acid* aid th* liver in its work ol *liniio-
aling from the body th* nexiou* matters,
which, if retained, would make the brain
heavy and dull, or, in tiase, would can**
reeumatiani, jaundice or skin eruption/.
and other allied treubles.
'Ui* malic acid ei applet, either raw er
cooked, will neutralize any excess of
chalky matter, engendered by aatiag too
much meat.
Ripe apple* are probably tbe least
fermautabl* of all fruit*, *xc*pt possibly
the banana. For this reasea ripe and
sound apples may be eaten by most
psrsons in even the hottest wsathtr; bit
even tlie apple is lafest whan coekad.
We have tho support of eminent
medical authority in saying that the
most healthful way to cook apples is to
pare aud core them, and bake in a
moderate ovea. K the apple ie ef a quite
sour varisty, it may b* necessary to add
a little, sugar, putting about a B*ltspoon-
(ul in the hollow whence the core is
extracted. The aeit best way to took
them is stewiag. Contrary to common
belief, apple* baked in their skins ar*
th* least healthful of cooked apples.
Sentenced to Death.
At the Nelson aesiz** laet week the
Kuskonook murder trial lasted marly a
whole .lay. Th* evidence shewed that
Doyle shot Connors ia the barroom of
Erickson's hotel at Kuskonook while the
latter was sitting in a chair. There had
been trouble between tke two earlier the
same eveaing, and Doyle bad gone to
his shack to get a revolver. Returning
to Erickson's he said to Corners, "Dig
up or I'll shoot yoa." Connors, evidently taking the threat as a joke, said,
" Fire away." Doyle did fire, and the
victim fall to th* floor shot through th*
heart. Doyle Sed, but was captured a
day or two later by the mounted poli��e
near th* boundary liae between British
Columbia and Moataaa.
The jury, after an abeonco of 12 minute*, brought i* a **rdi��tof " guilty ef
wilful murder." Judge Irving seataneed

Under thc above bond tho " Cranbrook
Herald," the first issue ol whicli has just
reached us, deals at some length on the
Iploturesquo location, surroundings and
futuse prospects of tlie young but rapidly
growing town of Cranbrook, In the
course of the article it says: " If u mini
should traverse all of East Kootenuy
(rom the north to the south, and from
tho east to the west, in search of tho-best,
natural location for a townsite, a plac
to which there conl.I be no possible,

Ideals in evory way, he could find just
one, and only ono. There are others
that have many attractive features, but
none that combine every good feature
that is considered requisite lor n f.uti.;-
factory townsite, except thut ou which
Cranbrook is located," ,
Xho Herald goes minutely into a description of the townsite aud mentions
every advantage offered to the investor.
There is no doubt that Cranbrook is
everything* that is claimed for it, shunted as it is on tho main line of the

" this vast territory * * * is bringing forth riches that is out-Klondlking

An act has passed lhe local legislature in Victoria making it li'twil to embody any number of claims in one

general feeling of the community, which
is that Mr, justice Walkoni should be

We say advisedly that lhe feeling is
practically universal, for a telegram was

MINING BROKER, OC-LDH', B.f, Th* "Copper King's" Romanes.
The romance of the " Copper King " of
Colorado and Its happy ending at St.
Dunstan's, in Fleet street, London, waa
a matter of particular interest to American society in London. The " Cop
King" is Mr. John McDonough, the
president of the John McDonough Secur
Ity Co., of Denver, head of such i
splendid property as the Gholson Coppor
Co., and principal member of the com.
pany working the mother vein at Clear
creek, Colorado, adjoining the famous
Stanley mine, Irom which gold, silver
and copper to the value of ���3,000,000
have been taken. The bride was Miss
Margerie Dare, a young lady who has
succeeded In making a name for herself
in literature in New York, writing over
the nom de plume of Richard Dare. She
is a New Orleans girl, and comes from
an old and distinguished Creole family,
Mr. McDonough is a Liverpool i'.irishman by birth. He went to America as
a lad, and his first experience of life on
the other *id* of tho Atlantic was gained
in telling papers about the streets of
New York. He was bright and energetic
and roso atoadily, finallygoingtnAllmny
and Troy, in New York state, and secur.
iug control ol a small library which he
soon developed iuto a publishing house
that gained a dedided reputation in the
western part of the state. It was at
Troy, when he had distanced a number
of rivals in the bookselling business, that
Mr. McDonough met Miss Dare. This
wai a little over five years ago. Everything went well lor a time. But the
course of true love did not run smoothly.
The McDonough establishment was sold,
the local society was disappointed of a
splendid wedding it had anticipated for
nearly a year, and Mr. McDonough left
Troy with a heavy heart. The young
Auieric.iii-Knglislit.mil went straight to
Colorado and tried to forgot the lovely
Southener. He got into the real estate
busines* in Denver, made money fast,
organized the First National Bank of
Colorado, of which be ia still the president, became director of tlie Commonwealth Savings Bank, and then started
in to buy up prospectors' claims in mines
that had proved good. He went in fur
copper when almost everybody was seeking only silver and gold, and the event
proved the wisdom of his judgment
Mr. McDonough, making copper hit
���pecialty, in this way organized syndicate after syndicate to operate the mines
he secured. One of these mines,
Custer county, Colorado, is no-v paying
good dividends bn over $2,000,000. When
tbe copper mines were in sueh a highly
remunerative condition, Mr. McDonough,
who had all along*kept a close watch on
the movements of Dare, again lay active
���lege to that young lady's affections, and
her reply to him was a promise to go to
London and be married, where it was
duly consumated a short time ago.
(From tho Now Denver Ledge.)
When hard times hit tho neighboring
camps of the Slocan they one and all
turn upon New Denver as if they would
rend her limb from limb. It was so in
'93-*94 and is being repeated now. And
New Denver marches proudly on, totally
unmindful of the babblings of her rattlebrained slater*.
Sandon ha* at last reached the zenith
of her glory. Tho prime motive of incorporation has been achieved and the town
' la wild with joy. The innovation is in
the shape of a comique���a regular high-
geared, double-tubbing, ball-bearing
concern where ancient lassies peddle
beer and work* the fickle youth of forty-
The gentle rustle of tho old-time
buttle is once again heard in the fashionable female world. History repeats
Itself in thit aa in nearly everything
el**, and we rejoice at thc return of thc
buttle. It will give us nn opportunity
to dispose of an immense ledge of old
newspapers that we have been unable to
work since cheap wall paper ruined our
business in that direction.
Turn to the Left.
Teamsters and others driving on the
public road* of this province must
alwaya pan on the left when meeting
another vehicle, Mr. Graham endeavored to change the law last week by
bringing in his Highway bill, whloh was
to enact that drivers should turn to the
right, but a* it is admitted tlmt turning
to tha left is much safer than turning to
th* right, the old law has been retained.
A* th* driver aits on the right front of
hi* vehicle he can see tlie inside wheels
Doth el hi* own and the wagon he passes
by taking the left, but if he went to tlie
right he would not be able to do so, and
the danger of a collision would be greater.
Turn to the left is tho rule of the road in
England, and the Spokesman-Review
���ay* it was also the rule in the American
colonies, but after the revolutionary war
the people adopted the opposite plan just
becau*e they would not have any Eng-
lith ideas in the new republic. The
English rule, however, prevails in British'Columbia, not because it is English,
but simply because it is safer.

of $200,000, and tho architect is Mr. Ed.
Maxwell, of Montreal. The C. P. R.
will also make extensions to several of
the company's western hotels during the
coming season, sueli as Field, Glacier,
Itevclstoke and North Bend.
Will Require More Men.
The C. P. Ii. will require a large number of men this summer. One thousand
more are needed for the Crow's Nest pass
road. Besides these a large number of
seel ion men will be needed to work on
tho main line of the Canadian Pacific
between l'ort William and Donald, B.C.
There is always a great deal of construction and repair work to be done along
the line when spring opens, and the
company will require 3,000 men in all to
work on the main line, About 2,000 will
bo secured in the west.
A young lady whoso sense of shame
would not permit her to address a certain
unmarried elerl; in the ordinary English
called for a pair of garters thus: " It is
my desire to obtain a pair of circular
elastic appendages and expended by
means of oscillating burnished Steele

Tho district of Alberta, N.W.T., has
extensive coal deposits, aud many of its
streams contain gold. Those facts are
insufficiently known, at least in Canada,
where the slopes of the Koekies have not

east side of 'this great range is, indeed;
*o heavily mineralized ns to offei excellent inducements to the prospector, who
will loon discover that valuable galena-
copper deposits havo demonstrated thoir
value. As in the Butte mines, this copper may give low values for tho first 400
nr 600 ft., when suddenly the grade may
become rich. Home claims belonging to
Messrs. P. McCarthy, Q.C., Major
Walker,- and T. E. Wilson havo proved
to contain true fissure veins; and probably with depth the lead will give

came horn* heartily dismnted with that

Macleod, Alt.., where the weather wus
cold aad the snow driits six feet high
packed so hard that it wu no trouble for
one to ride on horsoback over the drift*
without leaving any impression of the
horses' hoof*. He had waited around
Macleod for several day* in order to get
out to different parts of tbe work, but
tho snow was packed so that men had to
be sent out to shovel out a trail in order
to let teams pass on with provision* and
necessaries for tho camps. Further, Mr.
McCready says that in speaking with
some of tho ranchers in that vicinity
he was given to uudcrstund that if tho
hard weather did not immediately let up
tho loss in cattle would he enormous.
Mr. McCready went back last evening
