MINING SIGNALS
Proposed Alteration in the
Present Law.
WILL NOT PASS THIS SFSSION
Suggestion That the Mime Owners'
Association Consult with the
W. F. of M.
Victoria, May 30.—(Special.)—
Smith Curtis in introducing his bill
for the amendment of the mining
code objects to the code as at pres-
est established by law that it is too
complicated and too long, and that
but few mines are using it. He insists that if tbe code is workable it
ought to be enforced, and if it is
not workable it ought to be amended. It is to the interest of the
mineowner as well as the miner to
have the safest practicable code,
which also should be uniform. It
is understood that Alfred Parr, late
secretary of British Columbia district of Western Federation of
Miners,who is in the city, has been
consulted by the member for Rossland. The project is to get the
matter intelligently discussed with
a view of getting it taken up properly at the next session of the legislature, as the bill is not likely to
pass this. In the meantime it is
suggested the Western Federation
and tbe Mineowners' association
might get together and prepare a
new and acceptable code.

LADIES'ASSOCIATION SOCIAL
An At Home to   be Given Next Tuesday Evening.
The LadieB' association of St.
Andrew's churoh intend holding an
at home, at the residence of Mrs.
C. B. Lockhart, Columbia avenue,
on Tuesday evening, June 3rd, from
8 to 10 o'clock. Refreshments will
be served. Ice cream, strawberries
and cream,tea and cake, at popular
prices. The ladies hope to have
the pratronage of all their friendB
on that occasion.
It may be taken for gianted tbat
theie will be a very considerable
increase in the staff of the Le Roi
next week, and that the shipments
of that mine will be increased from
the present output by about 15,000
tons per month. Enough men will
be engaged to ship that amonnt of
ore which will be taken from the
dumps of the mine and shipped to
Northport. The smelter there will
in consilience not be shut down,
and will on the contrary be kept at
full blast. The effect will be that
hundreds of men who have been
laid off both here and at Northport
will be put back to work and business will generally be much larger.
In conjunction with this it may
be asserted that, either through the
Trail smelter or in another direction, not as yet definitely decided
upon, and in regard to which decision Manager. Kirby, of the War
Eagle and Centre Star, is now on
his way to Toronto, these
mines will ship by the end of next
month. Within a week, therefore,
the output of the camp should not
be less than 7000 to 8000 tons
weekly, and within a.month this
amount should be exceeded by an
additional 2000 tons, which will be
a record breaker for the camp.
This is, of course, not the final
outcome.   There  is lying on the
dumps of the Le Roi some 110,000
to 120,000 tons of ore which should
yield a profit of from $1  to $2 a
ton.   It is probable lhat the shipments will be kept   up   upon this
for a period which will not exceed
four months, and within that time
shipments   from   the   dump   will
cease and   the  production   of the
mine will be entirely from  the interior, but in   such   quantities as
not to fall behind the amount that
has been shipped in its best days.
This will be by reason of the fall in
the price of coke.   Whether the Le
Roi will succeed in getting all that
it is asking yet remains to be seen,
but at present it is practically assured that great reductions will be
made so that the ore of the mine
will be able to be shipped at a considerable profit.     Certain arrangements are in process of elaboration
which will make the mine practically independent of the action of
the railways.  -
The assertion made by the
World of some weeks since is,
therefore, completely borne out:
there will be more men employed
in the camp during the course of
the next few weeks than has ever
been the case before.
The history of the last month,
since the date of Manager McKen-
zie's famous cablegram to his Lon
don directors, has been a memorable one in mining ciicles. That
cablegram and accompanying letter had a fatal effect on the London market. The publication of
the letter arriving in London on
or about the 13th inst. caused the
issuance of a pessimistic circular
which called for a special meeting
of shareholders to consider the
question of closing down the mine.
It was pointed out that there had
actually been a loss in the operations of the mine instead of a profit. But calmer counsels soon prevailed and the insinuations of the
bear raid and damaging cablegrams coming from interested
sources in Rossland were no longer regarded as anything else but
an attempt to Becure a control of
the shares of the mine and so of the
directorate. The situation was
sufficiently Berious as to
suggest the sending out of some
directors. Three wore instantly
dispatched of whom two are in the
city at this present time of writing.
It was soon seen that (he loss
was one that had been incurred
under the old regime at Northport.
It was a smelter loss and nol one of
the mine. For the first there was
a remedy for the latter there was
none. It waB shown that these
losses had ceased and that the Le
Roi was now treating ore at a leBB
average loss than that declared by
Dr. Ledoux, the famous Canadian
expert, to be suffered at all metallurgical works. It was declared
that the loBBes were not new; they
! were the result of old conditions,
now no longer in existence.
It was attempted to be shown
that the losses occurred through
theft and a detective (or ex-crimi
nal) was instructed to steal a certain piece of "sow" (encrustation
within the furnace, supposed to be
extremely  valuable and  running
$600 to the ton) from the smelter
with a view of showing that large
losses could be made in this way
and the loss amounting to over
$200,000 could have been accounted for in  this particular manner.
The work was accomplished. A
piece of'sow" was stolen.brought to
Rossland, placed in the hands of
one of tlie banks and is now
in the hands of the managers of the
smelter. It was declared that this
was the way in which the shortage
could be accounted for. Unfortunately for the success of this clever
bear scheme the smelter, under the
new regime, has so altered the process of smelting aB to do away with
"sows" and the piece stolen, about
15 pounds in weight and worthless,
was tho relic of the old regime that
had not passed through the furnaces. From the outset the management must have known that
the whole story, clever as it was,
was a plant, although it is stated
that Manager McKenzie, and be it
stated to his honor, was above believing that it could have been
done with deliberate malice and
that the person who received the
ore received it believing tbat it had
been stolen.
But the whole story was given
away under a misapprehension to
the attorney of the opposite party.
This, then, falling through, and
a cablegram was sent to London by
the agents of the wicked bears, the
shareholders recovered from the
shock of their surprise, Another
circular was issue 1 ir London on
Wednesday last which, in view of
the facts detailed,of whose accuracy
the directors now in RoBsland must
have become more or less thoroughly satisfied, was a far more sensible
document. A special shareholders'
meeting was called for 10 o'clock
this morning in London and a
cablegram is momentarily expected
in the camp as to the result. In
view of the thorough ventilation of
all the ciri Jinstances and the honest, straightforward report submitted by the present management
this meeting can have but the one
end.
It will, of course, be understood
that with tlie present low price uf
copper the value of tlie dump upon
the Le Roi is much less than it
would'be under ordinary circumstances, and that it is not a wise
thing to ship any mure of it than
is absolutely necessary. The roust
heaps at Northport are practically
gone and a htge reserve of ore can
be idled there awaiting the time
the reduction of coke is made, and
Bmelting can be conducted at a fair
profit. In the meantime tlie ore
ordinarily shipped from the mines
is uf a higher grade than that usually Bent which is of course done
that the running expenses of the
mine shall be met. This is likely
to create a better impression on the
London market.
At any moment the news may
feme that the reductions in coke
and freight have been made, and
that the visits of the managers and
directors of the Northportand Trail
smelters duriDg the past ten days
have not been fruitless.
In the meantime, it is understood, that the directors are also
highly pleased with the development and progress upon the Le Roi

GOVERNMENT INSPECTION.
Supposing that it were insisted
upon that no stationary engineer
should be employed with any other
qualifications but that he was a
properly certificated and sober
man, seeing tbat the live3 oi many
were iu his bands, the chances are
that a higher wage would be de
manded by such an employe. Sup
posing it were further advanced
that no man whose nerves were
kept at a point of high tension dur
ing the whole time of hiB shif!
Bhould be kept at work for more
than eight hours, the chances are
that an extra man would have lo
be employed. And let it be further supposed that no hoist should
be allowed to run until a government inspector gave a written
authority to be renewed at periodical inspections, it is likely thai
old patched up hoists would not be
permitted to pass muster until
Bomebody was killed. But what a

TWO HISTORIC PARTIES.
Liberal and Conservative organs
are fond of referring to Canada's-
"t »o historic parties," says the Toronto Telegram."
It waB said of the Holy Roman
Empire that it was neither holy,
nor Roman, nor an Empire.
Canada may say of her Libera)
and Conservative factions that they
are neither two, nor great, nor historic.
Conservatism and Liberalism
serve the same interests and presents the Bame absence of principle
in their public conduct. These
parties are one and not two. Conservatism and Liberalism excbangi
the virtues of adversity for the
vices of prosperity. The methods
ol both parlies are small and noi
great. The Conservatism and Liberalism of Canada develop modern
faults of their own and do not tu
tivate the historic virtues of the
nsme they wear.
Canada's "Two Great Historic
Parties," are neither two, nor greal.
nor historic. They are strangely
like the Holy Roman Empire,
which was neither holy, nor Ro
man, nor an Empire.

laid before parliament and the
hon. member will Bee in referring
to the text that it does not touch
on the question of immigration.
It is not proposed to discuss the
position of Japanese aubjects at the
conference of colonial premiers.
Mr. J. O'Kelly: Are Japanese
subjects not to be treated as thoBe
of a civilized power?
Mr. Chamberlain: There is not
the slightest foundation for that
suggestion.

FIGURES TALK.
The fi th annual meeting of the shareholders
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company was held
in Toronto on March 7th.
The net profits of the year after paying all
operating expenses and all charge of every kind,
amounted to $207,848.39. After paying a dividend at the rate of ten percent per annum, » balance of $28,142, 89 was carried forward to the
credit of profit and loss.
This company's assets are their coal mines
and tiie townsi e of Fernie. Four years ago thia
company had no transportation facilities, and their
st >ck fold as low as eleven cents per Bhare. Today their stock is selling at $90.
The Similkcmeen Valley Coal companv, limited, assets are coal mines, timber, water power,
agricultural and horticultural land, city water
wirks, electric light plant and the townsite of
Ashnola, surrounded by the following resources:
gold, copper, silver, lead, iron, lime, fire clay,
platinum, and a fine stockraisiog country, and it
is the smelting center of the Similkameen valley, with a climate that is all that could be asked,
You can secure an option on this company's stock
by paying 10c per share down, and ttn cents per
month until fully paid, wi n non-forfeiture clause.
This price is subject to twenty-five cents advance
without no'ice as soon as transportation is assured.
The present price is $1.10 per Bhare. Do not wait
until it is too late, but get in on the ground floor,
and make a handeome profit. A purchaser of
one hundred shares now, may gain a profit of
88 990. Crow's nest shares ae an example. This
would be a fair profit on an investment of ten
dollars per month for eleven months. We invite
the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by
intending purchasers. For further information

be UBed without delay tofortify the
weakened and inflamed nerves, to
create a healthy action of the liver
and kidneys, to free the system
from morbid waste materials.
The use of Paine's Celery Compound will quickly purify the
blood, induce refreshing sleep,
good digestion and mental activity. But besides all tbis, Maine's
Celery Compound will restore
life and sparkle to tbe eyes, it
will clear the complexion, and
give to weak and sick women that
full health which makes them happy and lovable.
There is a feeling among mine
owners here, says the Sandon Pay-
•troak, backed by what is purported
to be reliable information, that the
American Smelting & Refining Co.
iB going to re-enter the British Columbia market in the near future.
It is pointed out by those who
claim to be in a position to know
tbat the trust is spending a large
amount of money on the East Helena smelter, and that the Great
Falls plant is being overhauled.
Also the Oreat Northern is standardizing the Great Falls & Canada
road to the Alberta coal fields and
the Crow's Nest Southern will be
completed by the middle of next
month, definitely settling the fuel
question for the Montana smelters.
Besides this, it is well known that
the enormous surplus of lead which
the lead trust had on its hands on
January 1st, 1901, has been reduced to normal proportions and the
demand for lead in the United
States ie looking up a little, in consequence of whicb the lead trust
will undoubtedly be able to contract with the smelter trust for a
larger output. A couple of local
managers have intimated that they
have had assurances which led
them to believe that the smelter
trust will again be in the Slocan
market in the very near future.
Should these predictions prove
to be true it will mean a sudden
return of prosperity to the Slocan
camp and the silver-lead sections
of East Kootenay, as the trust will
undoubtedly put the price back to
old settlement basis of New York
quotations, less duty and moisture.
This would net the rnjne owner
about $2.40 for lead, which would
permit every property in the camp
to operate. The Slocan was never
in a better condition to make a
large output and $2.40 for lead
would make it the most active and
prosperous camp on the North
American continent. It is a conservative estimate that the payroll
for mines tributary to Sandon
would immediately jump to 1200
men and for the remaining six
months the output would touch
30,000 tons, making the year's production for the district over 40,000
tons.

Incessant work, worry and

of the strongest woman.
Perhaps tbe commonest symptoms of warning of disease with
women is headache with sharp and
piercing pains; in some cases mav
be dull and heavy. Recurring
headache frequently arises from
loss of sleep, fatigue, disordered
digestion, sluggish blood, irritability or despondency. Frequently
a sluggish liver and inactive kidneys will produce agonizing headaches.

A. D. Provand, M. P. for Glasgow, Scotland, who is largely interested in mining propositions in
various parts of the world and in
this city, where he is represented
by T. Gilmour, has given to the
Ottawa Journal the following interesting and suggestive details of
Glasgow's municipal telephone service:
"In comparing the ' Glasgow
price for 'phone with other prices,
it is to be remembered that the
usual telephone claim is that the
larger the city the higher the rates
should be; and that the Glasgow
telephone area embraces 143 square
miles, and about a million people.
The wires are in cable and underground, which is an expensive form
of construction. Nevertheless, the
Glasgow rate is but 126 a year.
As soon as the telegraphs act of
1899 passed, the corporations applied for a licence, which was ultimately granted on March 1st,
1900, for the whole of the Glasgow
telephone area. Application for
leave to borrow £120,000 was made
to the secretary of state for Scotland
and promptly granted.
The telephone committee adopted two tariffs, which subscribers
may select at option. The first is
,£5 5s ($26) per annum and covers
an unlimited Bervice, night and
day, over the whole telephonic
area; the second is £3 10s ($17.50)
per annum, nnd ld. (2 •) for each
call made, jm}able b} ihe caller
only.
Operating service lirj; in in tho
Central switoh-ronm on tho l&.h of
March, 1901; since then exchanges
havo been opened at the Exhibition, Millhead and Bridgetown,
The number oi subscribers now is
5000.
The telephone service in Glasgow has hitherto been a monopoly
of the National Telephone company, which occupies a similar
position in North Britain to that of
the Bell Telephone company in
Canada, but the new municipal
exchange is progressing so rapidly
that within one year from the date
of its opening it will have as many
subscribers as the National Telephone company has been able to
obtain in twenty.

Victoria, May 30.—It is reported
that BrackmanKer have received
from the Imperial government
another order for a third cargo of
oats to be shipped to South Africa
to feed lhe cavalry horses of the
British army. Mr. D. R. Ker
would not confirm nor d>ny the report. From other BourceB it is
learned that a third cargo has
been ordered, making the fifth
up to date to be loaded on this
coast.
Brackman-Kerr are now loading the steamer Ganges at Vancouver with oats shipped . from
their large elevators at Edmonton,
and the Bteamer Cymbeline, which
is discharging a cargo of bags and
jute from Calcutta at San Francisco is to come to the Royal Roads
shortly for orders before proceeding to Vancouver to load. It has
not been learned which vessel haB
been secured for the third cargo
to be loaded by the   Victoria  firm.
No. 2, and it is more than likely
that on this mine, aB well as upon
the Le Roi, the War Eagle and
Centre Star, more men will Bhortly
be put to work.
Add to this the prospect of the
Giant shortly commencing operations and within a few weeks the
Homestake and the future of the
camp is, indeed, roseate.

The report on Hongkong for the
past year shows a revenue of three
and a quarter million dollars, exclusive of land sales and another
item which together amounts to
nearly a million dollars more. For
the past five years the revenue
haB Bteadily increased, but expenditure haa increased still more.
Last year it amounted to nearly
three and three quarters of million
dollars. Taxation in the colony it
light, but the cost of living is high
owing to the increase in the price
of food and the difficulty of obtaining house accommodation.
The financial stability of the
colony is assured owing to a revenue which increases naturally year
by year, and satisfactory provision
for the liquidation of the public debt, which was itself incurred
for public works, some of which
are directly remunerative.
The governor, Sir Henry Blake,
in a dispatch accompanying the
report, stated that the business,
which is mainly than of a great
transhipping port, increases with
the expanding trade of the East,
Last year shipping to the amount
of eighteen and a half million tone,
carrying nearly ten million tons of
merchandize and over two million
passengers,   entered  and cleared.
These figureB do not represen.
the total activity of thr port, for
Hongkong was practically the base
for the British expeditiona>-y force
in North Chiua, and the man-of-
war anchorage was for months
rilled with warships and transports of various nationalities.
The conduct of the Indian troops,
says the governor, left nothing to
be desired while in Hongkong.
With the road now made in the
new territory, there is ample accommodation for any number of
troops likely to be required in the
