Vetera* BaptlHt Minister.
Dr. A. R. Ladoux has gone back
to,New York after making a thor-
ouh investigation of the copper outlook here, in the Boundary and at
Nelson ho said to a Spokesman reporter before leaving Spokane:
"Nearly all the mineral product
of British Columbia, especially the
copper product, is handled by the
firm of which I am a member at
New York city, and the copper
from the Trail, Granby, Greenwood
smelter, and up to recently the product of the LeRoi smelter at North-
port, has been sampled by my firm-
We issue certificates of assay value
and on these certificates sales are
made.
"As far as tho smelters that I
have visited are concerned, at Trail,
Grand Forks and Greenwood they
are probably doing   the cheapest
work of any smelters north  of Arizona.    Most of the ore in the Boundary district is self-fluxing, so that
no barren iron or lime is necessary
They are smelting from 350 to 4001
tons per day through single furn- ]
aces   which   under   ordinary conditions would only handle 250 tons.
This is entirely due to  the fortunate character of tho ore.
"The next most prominent question is the supply of ore for these
smelters. With a view of satisfying myself on this point, 1 examined some of the most important
mines in each camp, such as the Le
Roi at Rossland and the Granby
company mines at Phoenix.
"As far as the Le Roi is concerned, I not only saw largo ore reserves as far as I could sec on a flying visit, but was especially pleased
with the character of the work under ground and the economy and
ingenuity kisplayod in the construction and operation of overhead
work.
"The  mines   in   Phoenix  show
even larger bodies of low grade ore
than I had expected.    In'the Ironsides and   Knob Hiil  one  finds it
lossible to measure up ore in sight
>y the million tons.
"The copper product of the Boundary and Rossland districts alone
amounts to more than 2,000,000
pounds of the metal per month, all
being*sliippi'd at present in the
form of matte, carrying 50per cent,
of Copper, By November tltcGran-
ty smelter will bd producing the
metal itself, as additional furnaces
and converters are being adaleil.
By that time they will be smelting
over 1000 tons daily.
"Speaking of our direct interests
in tho Boundary country, 1 will say
that we handle from 3,000,000 to
5,000,000 pounds of copper matte
ler month. This means that we
handle $250,000 worth of the product per month."
Brantford, June 25.—Rev. John
Tennant, veteran Baptist miuister
of this city, is dead, aged 82.
MR. AND MRS. LANGLEY
Home From Their Weal-ling Trip  ln the
Eait—The Okanagan Company.
Mr. and Mrs. Thornton Langley
who were married last month, returned yesterday evening to Rossland after an extensive wedding
trip in eastern cities.
Mr. Langley says that the business outlook is very good in the east
for everything except mining and
he thinks that before the east can
he interested in mining ventures in
this province again they must see
some return for money already invested here, in mine dividends.
Mr. Langley interested himself
in Okanagan company matters in
the east, and says that the company will shortly be reorganized
on  new basis.

SOUTHERN
DISASTER
Havoc is Most Appalling-
Hundreds Missing--Atl
Wires Are Down.
Montgomery, W. Va., June 25.—
For 48 hours there has been no
communication with the outside
world. Telephone and telearaph
wires are down and no mail traiiiB
or express had passed for 36 hours
until last night. The loss here and
in the immediate vicinity will ho
close to $100,000. Houses, barns,
railway cars, and bridges, were
swept away by tho uncontrollable water and such a. scene of
havoc never before has been witnessed here.
Richmond, Va., June 25.—A dispatch correspondent who returned
to Bluefield from the scene of the
disaster at 2 o'clock thiB
morning, describes the havoc
as most appalling. He says that
hundreds of people are missing or
reported missing, but discredits tlie
idea that the loss of life is anything like at first rumored.
Capetown, June 25.—Details of
the engagements between General
Elliott's column and De Wet's
force near Reitz June G, show that
the British surprised the Boere'
convoy. The burghers fled, but,
seeing that their captors were not
in strong force, returned and charged with great determination and
after desperate fighting recaptured
the convoy.
Meanwhile Colonel DeLisle arrived with reinforcements and the
fighting was renewed. The Boers
lay beneath their wagons and unflinchingly fired between the wheels
while their comrades were engaged
inspanning and driving off that
portion of the convoy furthest from
the British, The latter pushed in
among.the wagons, using the bayonet freely.
General . DeLarey was present
and personally used a rifle. His
right hand neighbor was killed
and the comrade on his left wounded. The affair ended in a series of
hand to hand encounters and fierce
melees, the Boers.eventually being
i driveuMff;,-Uneof De- Wei'*, staff

DR. LADOUX.
During the present period>of blue
ruin and agitation bo warmly supported by the Rossland Miner it is
some comfort to turn to the expressed views of Dr. Ladoux of
New York, as to the outlook for
gold-copper mining in this section
of the province.
The doctor is a man amongst
men in his particular line of mining
and his modestly expressed views
cannot fail to materially assist in
stopping, in a measure at least, a
good deal of the nonsense that is
being circulated by the Miner on
behalf of its new owners.
The visit of the doetor was a
most timely one, and on his return
to New York those who are likely
to be interested in this section of
the mining world will learn from a
high authority what the situation
here really is, and what it promises.
At the moment the local mining
men are all looking to tho New
York market as promising the most
assistance for mine development
bore, and when tho views of Dr.
Ladoux become known in the east
they will assist very materially the
efforts that are being made to bring
in American capital here.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Lord James of Hereford as ar'
biter in the Scottish coal trade dispute, has given his- decision on the
matter of wages. By this decision
the miners' wages are to be reduced
12j per cent, which is equal1 to 6d.
per day. Tbe masters had proposed a reduction of ls. per day.
The adjusted wage will rule until
July 31.
As was anticipated, the result of
the Soutli Wales Bliding scale audit
for the the two months ended April
30 has occasioned a reduction in
colliers' wages payable for the ensuing two months from June 1.
At the meeting of the sliding
scale joint committee it was
announced that tho reduction
would be 2aj per cent., making the
percentage above the 1879 standard 7Gi. There was a steady and
continuous increase in the percentage from February 1, 1899, when il
was 22 J above the Btandard, and
the percentage will still be 2. above
that of December and February
last.
So far this month the minss of
the Boundary camp have shipped
22,158 tons of gold-copper ore [every
ton of which was smelted at local
Smelters, Strange to say, there are
no "blue-ruin" newspapers in
Boundary districts. The Green-
Wood Miner, the (ireenwood Times,
the I'lioenix Pioneer and I In: • Ira nd
ForkB Gillette, all appear to be
prosperous and no one of them de-
voteB space to decrying the country
or its laws.—Tribune.
Butte pays higher wages than
Northport, and at Butte the shifts
are all eight hours. At Northport
it iB eight hours for feeders, ten for
mechanics and twelve hours for
furnace men and charge wheelers.
Eighty-four hours a week, the way
hours are being cut down these
days, is it pretty good service. The
manager was hardly wise to raisu
the question be did in tlie Spokesman interview of last week. So
far, the men have not questioned
the hours of work or the wages paid
but if the niu.iager makes any further comparisons they will doubtless rise to the occasion.

Editor World:
Sir—Well wishers of our public
schools and sympathizers with
their object will be pleased with
the very sensible determination of
the superintendent of education to
do away with the elaborate system
of promotion examinations that
that prevailed for several years.
Hereafter there will be but three
grades in the schools and promotions within those grades will be
made on the judgment of the teacher of each individual pupil. Too
much, it is feared, in the past the
great ambition of teachers has
been to make a good showing at
these half-yearly examinations.
When these results have been the
the chief criterion by which a
teacher's ability and success is
judged it is not surprising that the
other ambitions have been crushed.
With four-fifths of the children
of any nation the public school begins and ends their education.
Within that school life the character should be built up in truthfulness, self control, perseverance and
self reliance. The rudiments of
knowledge must be imparted, but
of greater importance is it that the
child should have the desire for
more knowledge than he can possibly gain at the public school and
his mind be so cultured that he
knows how to pursue his studies
when he passes beyond the guid
ance of the teacher.
If the schools are to fulfil their
best mission, this higher ambition
to mould character, to develop
mental power and to implant de-
desire for knowledge must present
itself to every true teacher. It is
by success iu working out theBe ob
ject-s that the public school teacher
should be judged and adva-ncea in,
salary and -authority granted. The
new regulations, by causing a pupil
to remain a longer time under each
teacher, gives better opportunity
for the carrying out of this work
which the public schools have to
do. The acquirement of knowledge
is but a small part of education
and just to that extent which the
promotion of character, the instill
ing of a desire for knowledge, for
self improvement, are kept constantly before those who are con
nected with public schools will our
educational system be a success
and yield ample compensation for
the quire liberal outlay of money
upon it. Yours, etc.,

FAIRY TALE
Luck in Gold Mining--How
Some Men- Grow Rich
Quickly.
The'following is another mining
•tory told by Timothy W. Brooks,
an old California miner, some of
whose yarns have already appeared
in the Would:
"James W. Doyle, a millionaire
of Victor, Colorado, is an illustration of how fitfully fortune
smileB in tho-realm of gold mining.
Doyle, who had learned the carpenter tradej but did not follow it,
was driving a hack in Manitou
when "theCripple Creek excitement
began in 1891. In Colorado
Springs there was a young.plumber
named Jimmy Burns. The two
were acquainted, and together they
went to Cripple Creek to try their
luofe Neither knew anything
about mining. Battle Mountain,
near-Victor, was then covered with
location stakes. There was a piece
of1 land, comprising about one-
sixth of an acre, which had no
owner because it was considered
worthless. Doyle and Burns took
up this land in. the belief that
something was better than nothing
They sent for John Harnan, who
was employed at driving a street
scraper in Colorado Springs, to
come and help them dig their
' claim. Human's mining experience consisted of what he had
learned as a child in picking slate
from the screens of Pennsylvania
coalmines. For months the trio
put in hard work sinking a shaft,
with not a single sign of pay ore.
Their acquaintances sought to discourage them, but they persisted,
and were rewarded by strfking a
vein which made them millionaires."

Eurdfre Against America
in 1903—A Stubborn
Contest Coming.
New'York, June 25.—A. Vander-
lip, formerly assistant secretary of
the treasury, who has just returned
to Washington from a long trip
abroad, is quoted by the Tribune's
correspondent as saying:
"I thiifk it not only possible but
highly probable that Europe can
and will agree to a binding term of
trade combination against us within the next few years, and that the
result will be tbe most gigantic
and stubborn commercial war in
the history of the world. As1 most
of our commercial treaties expire
in 11103, J look for the real beginning of the war then in a refusal of
most of the continental nations to
renew these conventions."
