Owing to the arrangements for
shipping at the Le Roi dump not
being perfected the shipments
thence were only 1200 tons for the
week instead of about 3000. Giant
is shipping three more cars.
The shipments of ore from the
camp since January 1, are subjoined. While the shipments for
the past week can only be approximately given, those for the previous period have been corrected
and give the gross wet weight in

TERMS GRANTED BY G. N. RAILWAY
Account of the Proceedings of the  Late General
Meeting of the Le Roi Share-'
holders.
.?■'*
An extrarordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Le
Roi company was held in London
on May 30th, at which the following gentlemen were appointed to
act as a committee to investigate
the conditions at the Le Roi: Messrs. C. Williamson Milne, Col. Burton Brown, A. J. McMillan, Sir
Henry Tyler and A. Morton. These
gentlemen leave London today, and
may be expected here towards the
latter part of this month.
The chairman of the company,
Mr. Hill, presided at the meeting,
and after calling it to order said
that he had cabled Manager Mackenzie during the month of April
asking him whether it was not possible to raise the grade of ore pending the reduction of expenses. It
was replied that the loss in copper
at the Bmelter was much greater
than had been estimated, and that
the value of the assets of the smelter
had been over estimated by $149,-
500. He advised to continue mining at the present prices and present grade of ore with copper at its
present low figures was to do so at
a Iobb. On the other hand to send
out only high grade ore would mean
a lessened production, and also no
profit. He therefore advocated the
closing down of the smelterjand the
cessation of production at the mine.
Mr. Dickenson was in Rossland
on the receipt of Manager Mackenzie's letter. He was cabled and
replied much more favorably. A
cable was then sent to the manager asking him whether any alteration for the better had occurred.
He replied that copper had risen
and that the average grade of ore
on a winze at the 900-foot level waB
$18.
Mr. Hill went on to say that all
had heard very sinister rumors as
to Mr. Mackenzie's management,
but that he did not believe them.
He did not understand, however,
how it waB that the manager who
apparently knew all about this
loss in copper did not take it into
consideration iu preparing his
monthly estimates, which Mr. Hill
declared, could not be checked in
London. As for the information
leaking out, it could not be kept
secret in a mining camp. The
cleanup of a Bmelter was a big
thing, and all who knew about the
smelter would know exactly what
would be the result.
Mr. Hill then went on to speak
of the reduction of treatment rates,
and stated:
"The freight rate charged by the
G. N. Ry,, from Rossland to North-
port, a distance of 18 miles, all
down hill, is 40 cents a ton. I am
informed that a freight rate of 25
cents per ton for that journey would
pay them handsomely; they would
make large profits out of it. Again.
I believe we should be able to get a
reduction in the freight rates on
our matte, from Northport to New
York, from   the  present  rata  of
$15.50 per ton to $12 per ton. I believe that when the branch line of
the G. N. Ry., now nearly completed to the Crow's Nest Coal
Fields, is in operation, we shall get
our coke certainly at the same
price as we are getting it from only
a few miles away at Trail, And
all these things will make a difference in our expenses of over $1 a
ton of ore treated.
The chairman then explained
that the drop in copper from 16 J
cents at the time of Mr.Frecheville's
report to 12 cents had meant a drop
in the profits on copper from 12 to
7 cents, very nearly a half.
Mr. Hill then declared his intention of resigning from his position just as soon as the investigating committee had reported, as he
had lost a great deal of money in
the mine.
Col. Burton Brown thought that
the report that they had been favored with lately was of a most
alarming description and more than
there was any necessity for. The
shareholders had not been told
anything about the doings
at the smelter and whether
any ore had been sent to any other
smelter in order to check the results obtained at Northport.
Mr. A. Morten said he was, unfortunately, a large shareholder in
the company. He had every-confidence in the value of the property
but no confidence in the management. He considered it perfectly
scandalous the way the shares of
the company had been manipulated. He did not know who was responsible for it, but would like to
know who had benefitted. Some
people must have made an enormous profit out of the fall. Who
were they? He thought the committee of shareholders ought to
find out into whose pockets the
money went. The January return
of gold was 6,600 ozs., in Feb. it
was 6,100 oz., in March it was 7,-
500 oz., an increase of 1,400 ozs.; in
April, just before this tremendous
soandal, the return was 8,600 ozb.,
an increase of another 1,400 ozs.;
then, directly afterwards, the enormous fall came. This enormous
fall put enormous profits into some
people's pockets; who were they?
That was what they wanted to
know, The mine, he was sure.^as
a perfectly good one, and if it answered tho purpose of certain people, the shares would go up to £7
or JJ8 again. He wanted to see
every director out of office.
Mr. Hall said he was a jobber in
the Le Roi market. When the circular waB issued by the Le Roi
directors the Bhares fell to £1.5
and Bomeone was a persistent buyer and bad been ever since. The
gentlemen who bought those Bhares
was a broker, and had been a persistent seller at eight, and sold
them down to four and three, and
when the bad cable came that same
man bought every share he could
lay his hands on. He should like
the matter explained.

Directors.
ANNIE IS LOOKING EXCELLENT
The Grade of Ore of the Le  Roi
No.   2   is   Keeping
Up.
The report of the Le Roi No. 2
for the month of April, sent to
London, haB just come to hand. It
states that 5,653 tons were shipped
from the Josie (in which is included the Annie), and 723 tons from
the No. 1. The bulk of the ore
came from the 500 and 600 foot
levels. The gross value of the ore
shipped was $117,355.55, or an average of $18.41 per dry ton.
On the Josie the stopes worked
were those east and west of the 300
level, on the Annie the stopes
on the 600, 600 and 700 foot levels,
and on the Poorman on the upper
levels. On the No. 1 ore was shipped from the dump and also from
the 300 foot level.
The management reports that
all the stopes have maintained
their values. It is stated that instead of the extensive croBBCutting
hitherto in vogue, owing to the
widening and subsequent occasional
splitting of the vein and local displacements, diamond drill boring
has been substituted with advantage.
A late telegram (May 26,) states
that a winze in the Annie has gone
down 40 feet from the 700 foot
level, all in high grade ore.

EX-PRESIDENT STEYN.
The Montreal Witness think^
that moro pathetic than the figun
of Kruger is that of Steyn. " Ii
waB Steyn with his wild dream ol
becoming the Washington of South
Africa," says the Witness, " who
waH responsible for the war. With
Kruger, had he ever dared war
alone, it would have been a war ol
local independence. With Steyn
it was a war of conquest and the
creation of a Dutch South Africa
On this Steyn staked everything
The return of peace contained n<
hope for him, nothing indeed bin
the looking for of indignation a'
the handB of those who had trusted
his wisdom and whom he had led
into the inferno of a wasting war
He has been spared all this crimin
ation by the hand of Providence.
All his hopes wrecked, it is noi
surprising that he should have been
stricken down. Even those wbehave suffered most will pity thi
man in the crowning misfortune
that has overtaken him. Paral
yzsd and on parole, befriended b}
those he sought to destroy, deserted
at last by the people he misled to
their destruction, is it any wondei
that the supreme anguish of final
irretrievable defeat should strain
his constitution beyond endurance
and lay bim proBtrate."
THE PREAMBLE.
If there is one thing more than
another which sticks in thegizzardf
of the old roosters of the "historii
parties" it is that preamble to the
Kamloops platform whereby it if
laid down that no candidate for
the legislature may obtain a nomination from any convention of the
Progressive party, no matter
whether he be a Progressive or an
"historic partizan," unless he first
gives an undated resignation from
the legislature addressed to the
lieutenant-governor, w hich shall re
main in the hands of j the convention, to be used in case that the
elected member should vote against
any measure advocated by the
Kamloops platform.
The Sandon Mining Review i;
of the opinion that this is machine
politics, tbat it will render thelegis
lator bound and no longer inde
pendent, and that no self respecting man could possibly bind him
self to a condition in which he becomes a mere puppet- of which the
strings are pulled by the convention.
Neglecting  for  the  moment the
attempt   to   brand "machine" und
turning to the other portion of the
accusation, it is  merely necessary
to observe that at   no timo is any
legislator supposed to be Independent except in  his  verbal  pledges*
to his constituents.   If it had been
found in tho paBt that these pledget-
were kept there would be no necessity for any such pledge being ex
acted.   It is because that it is the
usual experience of the voters that
theB9 pledges are as lovers'  vows,
or dicers' oaths, that the pledge it-
exacted.   The  member is no more
bound in the one case  than in the
other.    There iB merely this differ
ence that in the   one case ho can
break his  pledges with impunity,
and in   the   other   he cannot.   It
may be   argued   that the penally
for breaking a pledge today is the
forfeiture of the seat of the offending member at the election.   True.
But in  the   meantime  much mischief can be accomplished and the
member having got his price is not
likely to care for the disapprobation
fit his constituents.     In   thc other
case he can be  moved at once be-
for bis perjury can have any evil
effect. It would in any event be
minimized. The punishment would
come Ewiftly. Were there a dozen
or even four members in the house
at the present time.the railway subsidy would never have(passed. Men
would have been afraid to vote
against the known wislies of the
people~when they knew the fate
awaiting them was swift and inevitable.
But there is another assumption
of the Review which is not warranted. That is that there would
be constant interference. By no
;neans. To interfere a fresh convention of the constituents electing
that member would have to be
called in order that the resignation
might be placed in the hands of the
governor.
An ounce of practice is,,howevor,
worth a pound of theory. This
preamble, which was published in
ihe Would before the Kamloops
convention, was copied from the
preamble in use for several yea s
in Queensland. It has not been
found there that there has been
constant interference. The resignation has never been ueed, it having been found sufficient that the
knowledge of its existence was
enough to prevent any breaking of
pledgeB by tempted members.
Now Chris Foley, advocating
this at Sandon, might have been
guilty 0! advocating machine polices as accused by the Review. If
such iB the case then the new machine introduced by the Progressives into politics is to be welcomed.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The attention of our readers is
directed to the statements made by
Chairman Hill of the Le Roi company on the occasion of the meeting of the shareholders of that company on May 30. On June 5 the
Would said that there was no
doubt as to the deal being closed
between the Le Roi and the railway
as to tbe rates. This was "contradicted" by Manager aiackeii/.ie
on June 9, but is no'w found to be
the fact, nevertheless, on May 30 in
London. A deal is not cloBed until
ratified by both parties. In this
case, however, the mine made certain demands which were granted
by the railway and there is absolutely no reason to suppose that the
Le Roi directors will refuse to ratify
an arrangement when their own
terms are practically granted.
The Miner took tbe trouble to
contradict tbe Would as to the
practical closing of the deal between
the railway and the Le Roi mine.
Trouble was also taken to fill the
press of B. C. and Washington with
that same contradictoin. Will it
please now go away back and sit
down. The Would published some
time ago the news that good ore
had been found on the lower levels
of the Le Roi. This was also contradicted by the same unreliable
paper. It is now openly acknowledged. It had belter change its
name to the '' Farmer" or to the
" Police Court Gazette and Sedimentary Repoiter."

London, June 14.—Reconstruction in South Africa will soon be
begun. The immediate prospect is
bright, since the burghers are fraternising with the soldiers, and
there is universal joy over the
cessation of hostilities.
The South African millionaires
do not conceal their apprebenson
over the con'ingenciesof the future,
when the language q'r^stion, as
compromise d, will tei d to reanimate the Dutch elements with ambition, and when the rele se of the
prisoners will Htrengthen the resources of the intriguers, especially
in Cape Colony, whore imminent
suspension of the Constitution and
the administration of the largest
South African state by Lord Milner as the direct agentol tueOrown,
are likely to excite comment. They
are naturally pessimistic since the
exemption of the land from taxation exposes tbe mining interests
to the certainty of carrying the
burdens 0} the various loyalist indemnities and the slump of Sauth
Africans has astonished all.
The reaction of the mining market has been, however, a natural
sequel to the prolonged delay in
making peace. There was a premature rush to secure profits, and
the whole line of securities sagged,
carrying consols with them. There
is a temporary reaction since the
resumption of work in the Rand is
now practicable, and since consols
must rise when the end of the war
prevents further issues, even the
chancellor of the exchequer is
plagued to resume the sinking fund
arrangement*.

The confirmation Bervice last
night at St. George's church was
very well attended. It was a pretty
and interesting characier, and the
words addressed to the candidates
by his lordship the bishop of Kootenay will not be readily forgotten.
Owing to an inadvertence on the
part of the printing committee of
the Coronation festivities, all men
tion of the miners joining in on that
occasion was left off the posters,
Word was telegraphed to Secretary
Collins now in the Boundary to
see that each bill had a slip at
tached rectifying the omission.
The Great Northern is issuing
one and one-third fares for the re
turn journey to Victoria on the oo
casion of the Grand Lodge meeting
of A. F. & A. M., if 15 delegates
paying railway fare attend that
convention. Should 50 attend a
single fare will be granted. Ticket!
are good within three days before
the opening of the session, and if
presented within three davs after
its close.
