Much Secresy Observed at the Japanese Headquarters at
Fenghwang.
DR. BRUHN'S
1
OINTMENT
London, May 26—The Daily
Mail's correspondent at Shimono-
seki, Japan, cabling under date of
May 24th, asserts that aotive preparations are in progress for the
reduotion of Port Arthur and that
these preparations will be entrusted
to a carefully chosen foroe of veterans forming part of the third army.
Very heavy artillery, the corres
pondent s ye, is being landed on
the Liautan peninsula
Despatches to the Daily Telegraph sqow that on May 16th tbe
Japanese army attributes thiB to
the necessity for joint aotion with
ihe Japanese army which has
landed at Pitsewo. They explain
that communication had not yet
been established between the two
Japanese armies, but it is expected
to be effected within a few daye.
The despatches say that tbe telegraph lines between Fenghwang
and the south have been out by
the Russians disguised aB Chinese. A Russian transport is
moving from Liauyang in the
direotion of Mukden, but it ia not
known whether thia means a retirement of the army or merely
the removal of winter clothing,
which no longer is needed.
The movements of the war correspondents, the despatches say,
are limited to a radius of a mile
and a half from Fenghwang.
The Daily Telegraph's Newohwang correspondent deolared
that General Kouropatkin is determined to check the Japanese
advanoe at Liauohang, where probably the greatest battle of the war
will be fought. He adds that the
Japanese land operations against
Port Arthur are meeting with little sucoess, and that Lieutenant
Qeneral Stoessel and Major Qeneral Fook oontinue to make well
directed but desperate sorties
against the advance of the Japs
who are fighting with stubborn determination.

Antoine Starting Up
The Greener Brothers went up
to the Antoine, Slooan, Friday to
put thing! in shape for starting up.
The management of the Le Roi
Still reserving a marked reticence as to the fnture plans of the
mine whioh ie much puzzling the
citizens of Rossland and is a disturbing faotor in the prosperity of
the camp which otherwise seems
to be assured of a good season this
summer and fall. Many enquiries
were made at the newspaper offices
of the city and not a little hostility
iB expressed by all claeses of citizens.
If anybody's interests were subserved by the polioy pursued it
would be a different matter but
this hardly seems to be the case
exoept in one possible direction.
The local management is unapproachable in a manner that distinguishes no public officer in Canada.
Still there are certain facts which
are patent to everybody.
It is known tha*. much work had
to be done last year in order to
catch np with the development.
ThiB ceased at the begining of 1904
and London shareholders and
Rossland alike were pleased to
bave the announcement that $50,-
000 dear profit was made in Jau-
uary and still were more jubilant
whon the profits for February were
officially anounced at $58,000.'
Then came this sudden change.
Maroh went by and no official
statement was made ae to the profit. Tbe same with April. People must ask theneelves why the
announcements were not made.
In whose interests could they be
possibly suppressed?
Next without a word of n arning
the smelter dosed down and all
sorts of reasons unofficially given.
Then it starts up again, and in the
meantime the mine reduces its
force tft less than 100 men, about
85 it iscurrontly reported, although
this is probably under the mark.
It has transpired that the real
reason for shutting down was want
of flux, despite the absurd statement made in tho Review and
Miner that the acid slag of the
smelter oould be used as a flux. It
is now known that the iron flux
has been obtained from the Kootenay mine and that the smelter does
not want any more than thiB until
the expiry of such contract.
Next it is unofficially said that
the mine will build a concentrator
of the water type, and actually the
builder is in camp.
Every man who has been work
ing in the Le Roi reoently declares
that he never saw the mine in better shape at any period of its history. Yet the shares have dropped
from 35 abillloga to 17s (id. That
ia to eay that the  whole mine  ie

terettts
worth only $875,000 and aa there
is something like half a million in
maohinery in operation the valua-
ion of the mine proper is leaa than
half a million, which is absurd in
face of the reports of the mine's
today, in face of the reoent profits
deolared and in face of the profits
which have not been declared. It
is possible that some shareholders
have lost money over the fall. It
is also possible tbat somebody,
shareholders or no, have made
money.
But oomes the report that $335,*
000 has been overestimated in the
profits by wrong assaying in the
mine, and in support the Rossland
assay office shuts [down. Few are
going to believe thai Assayer Robins is a man of that kind, whether
thc wrongful assaying was wilfully
or ignorantly done. Moreovor the
statement is not official. It appeared in the Westminster Gazette
of London, and is uncontradicted
and unaffirmed. Considering that
a sample is assayed here and a
portion of the same is sent to
Northport with the ore, and considering the large amount,the faot,
if true, would argue at great inattention,lasting over several months,
to have produced anything like
the results named. The report
may be dismissed as baseless.
Now the smelter has a certain
reserve of ore. It must keep it
there. It has oonolu'ed a oontraot
for several monts at least, possibly
a year, with the Kootenay mine,
which means tbat tbe.Le Roi must
Bhip or else it would not require
the iron flux. It has called a concentrator builder to the camp and
the concentrator will go up
while the smelter iB using tbe iron
flux. Afterwards the concentrates
will be used as that flux. Henoe
there ie no reason for secrecy. No*
body is being benefited by it while
every interest, that of mining men,
who cannot sell their properties or
get capital for their improvement,
that of business men who are carrying largo Btocks, tbat of miners
who have built homes her ,are being hurt.

Yesterday      was       celebrated
throughout the Empire as Empire
Day.   Laat year wae the fust oc-
caiion, and many a century may
pus before   the  last  occasion   is
noted.   From   1838 to 1900,  the
34th of May was oelebrated as tbe
birthday  of   the greatest   Queen
that Kngland has ever seen, with
the possible exception of Elizabeth,
who, like Viotoria, was an Empire
builder, and whose reign first wit*
netted the overflow of the English
pioneer, who has since settled a'l
over the world, and has founded
many a nation.   The idea of Empire, ae it ia understood today, was
deeply enthroned in  the mind o
the late Queen, planted there pos
tibly by the great statesman Din
raeli, a   generation,   may be two,
ahead   of hie time.   Observed for
a oouple of years after her decease
as Victoria Day, in memory of her
virtues  and her ac-idtremeula,   it
was fitting that this day should be
the day whioh should be taken as
tbat of a general rejoicing throughout the length and breadth of the
broad Dominion of the Empire as
tifja commemoration  of the Sover
eign who, the visible and tangible
link of Empire, brought home to
the English   speaking   peoples in
tbe Four Seas of the  Earth, the
greatest idea whioh has ever dominated a proud but dogged people.

LEVEL SITE,
There is an official report on
Roaaland, embraced in the general
official report for the province, issued by the Department of Mines
lor 1903, whioh among other mines
and mining things deals with tbe
Trail mill which is erected by the
Rouland Power company, another
name, aa popularly understood, for
the War Eagle and Centre Star
mines. The Roseland Power company draws attention to the mill
being of the "level site" type, and
deolaree that it is a new departure
in thia country. It does not say
what are the advantages of a level
tite, when a hillside is immediately
alongside. On a prairie, of course,
a level site needs no bolstering, as
none other is available. Herein
the mountains the advantages of a
level site are not obvious. A hill

done by gravity, and there is no
expenditure of power in hois ing
the oret. A good example of this
oan be found in the Elmore mill.
With a level site beside the ordinary expenses of concentrating,
will have to be added those of
railing the ore to the top of the
mill and we understand, in the
Trail mill the tailings will afterward! have to be hoisted in the
lame way to the top of the next
building, there being two at Trail

This association prooured itB lioenoe
to do business in Canada in 1885.
George D Eldridge, New York,
who is now here, is a first vice-
president of the assooiatino.
In 1807 an inquiry was being
made into matters connected witb
the association by the insurance
department of the State of New
York. James D. Wells, a Canadian was seoond vice-president. In
his aworn statement to the New
York insurance department, Eldridge stated tbat Wells informed
him in 1885, when obtaining a
lioenoe for the oompany to do business in Canada, he had to pay
"good round sums" to members of
Parliament, of ithe Government
of that day. His outlay in
that way exceeded   $10,000.
Eldridge's statement under the
oath iB. printed in the report submitted to the New York department in 1885.
The Senate will have a chanoe
to investigate thia grave oharge
whioh affects the honor of tbe
Canadian Parliament and of the
Dominion.

There were a large party of trip
pers out to Murphy creek yesterday taking advantage of one of the
very few free days in the year
when the C. P. K. Bend out a train
from Rossland in the morning.
The first lacrosse game ot the
Reason came off yesterday between
the second team of Nelson and the
Rossland players. It had by no
means the patronage that the national game ol Canttda would temn
to warrant, and spectators, possibly tired by the double game, quit
the ground in numbers before it
was over. This ie a pity, for lacrosse is one ol the prettiest and
fastest games ever played.
Still, however, the players may
take some of the blame to them -
selves. In the first place there
was not much honor for Rosaland
to beat Nelson's second team, although we are no matoh for its
first. Next, tough play will attract
no one, it is unsportsmanlike. II
the adversary cannot be beaten
without striking him over the
head with the sharpedged lacrosse
stick, then the game might as well
remain unplayed, tor there is no
honor in winning for either aide.
A little more striotness-on the part
of the umpires will be fully appreciated by the public. It is of no
use saying that one side is ae bad
as the other. A rough play ought
to put tbe player on the fence at
once.
The score was seven to two in
Favor of Roesland.
Trail    Baseball    Players
Come Up to Defeat
Yesterday
The baseball game'between Trail
and Roseland here yesterday resulted in a win for the home team
by a score of 13 to 5. More might
have been made but the soorer was
ignorant of the figures.
■ For the first three innings the
play was very even, neither Bide
flooring. After this Trail fell
down and their pitoher was slogged
all over the fi ld.
It may be said that Trail was
anything but pleased at the reversal
of the form shown at the game recently between the twc at the
Smelter City, and the umpire,Bur
kin, oame in for much animadver-
version.
