Just
Kaslo, Jan. 2—The Rambler-
Cariboo Minea, Limited, have declared another dividend of three
cents per share amounting to $30,-
000. This is the fourth dividend
of like amount which has been paid
during the past year.
Besides doing extensive development, the company has installed
considerable new mining equipment, consisting of 2500 feet of
flume and pipe line, 400-light
electric plant, (10-ton concentrating
mill, belt-driven air compressor,
and 40-ton hoist. These improvement. oost the company in the
neighborhood of $40,000, which
was paid out of the earnings for
the current year. A circular sent
out to the shareholders under date
of December 31st says: "The work
outlined having been completed
and paid for, and the condition of
the mines and the treasury being
both satisfactory and gratifying,
we take pleasure in affording you
notice herein of dividend No. 8,
payable January 30th, and we confidently expect that the earnings
for the coming year, after payment
for improvements and dividend*-.
No. 5, 0 and 7, the property is
handsomely equipped should pay
more than one per cent per month.
The Rambler-Cariboo dividend
makes the third dividend deolared
frojn Slocan-piines during the past
ten days, the OoodShough, Slocan
Star,'and Rambler-Cariboo having
all -made ChristmaB presents to
their- shareholders.

Total Probable will be Aronnd $10,000,000--
Bonudary an Slocan Helped Out
Le Roi Figures for Month of November—Average Value Per Ton is
$l1.51,Hrofit at Trail $11,634.
Referring to the mineral output
for the Kootenays and Yale during'1
the past twelve months, the Nelson
Tribune makes the following estimate:
"Although accurate data is not
obtainable, it is safe to approximate the output of the metalliferous mines of East and West Kootenay and Yale at $10,000,000 for
the year 1901. This iB a slight
gain over the year 1900, notwithstanding the shutdown of the
mines at Rossland because, of the
demand of the muckers for the same
rate of wages paid in other camps
The mines in EaBt Kootenay, owing to the fall in prices of lead and
silver, also suspended operations
early in the summer. The losses
of Rossland and East Kootenay
are oEfsot by tho gains made in the
Boundary and the Slocan. Close
on to 850,000 tons of ore in all
were mined, and the aggregate
value ($10,000,000) shows that the
ore averaged over $12 a ton, which
is a pretty good average, seeing
that the ores of the Boundary are
low grade, probably the lowest
grade   of   any   ores in the world
profitably treated by fire concentration.  The figures are as follows:

The London financial papers
just received give lengthy accounts
of the first statutory meeting of the
London & Globe creditors held on
December 16th and contain many
Strange financial disclosures.
It is announced that the court
has made an order for the public
examination of Whitaker Wright,
in the case of the British America
Corporation's affairs and that the
examination will be held on the
15th of this month.
The Returns for the month of
November for the Le Roi are as
follows; 14,808 tons were shipped
to the Northport- smelter, containing 4,991 oz. gold, 8,832 oz. silver
and 181 tons copper making
a total grots value of $103,029;
average value per ton $11.51. In
addition to the above 1639 tons of
ore from the dump were tn ated at
the Trail smelter, yielding a profit
of $11,634.
$13,091,000
This is well within the mark and
shows an   increase   over  the production of 1900, which was $10,069,-

MINERAL   OUTPUT.
The Kootenay papers are gueBB-
ing at the mineral output for the
different mining divisions for tbe
past year. The Rossland Miner
admits having unduly boosted Le
Roi shipments, and yesterday
dropped off nearly 12,000 tons for
the year's output of this property
and puts the total shipments of
the camp at 279,000 tons. The
correct total will pobably be some
where around 275,000 tons, and the
value close to $3,000,000. The
Nelson Tribune puts our tonnage
at 300,000 tons, being doubtless
governed by the figures published
week by week by Rossland's morning paper, but placed the value—
$10 a ton—at $3,000,000.
The Nelson Miner—under the
guidance of our old friend Colonel
Egan—places the Trail Creek output at something over 293,000 tons
a_ad its value at over $3,800,000.
We will all have to wait for Gold
Commissioner Kirkup's figures,
but we believe the yalue of this
district's output for the past year
will be in the immediate neighborhood of $3,000,000, a remarkably
good showing under the adverse
circumstances existing during the
latter portion of the year.
Tbh Nelson Miner, as will be
seen by the figures given in another
column places the value of the
year's output for East and West
Kootenay and Yale at $13,021,000,
while tbe Tribune gives the total
at an even $10,000,000. The real
figures will probably be somewhat
under ten million dollars, and considering the troubles and difficulties which have afflicted the mineral industry during 1901, the
total can be fairly regarded as a
emirkably good one.
THE COST OF IT.
Manager J. II. Mackenzie of the
Le Roi is credited with Baying
that although the drop in copper
will make a difference of $1.14 per
ton to his company, he has no
intention of shutting down the
mine in consequence.-
If the real cost of production   in
the Le Roi   mine   at   the  present
time is given in the   London papers month by month as   has been
the cnBton heretofore, we  will  be
better able to judge what the cost
of fighting the  union men  really
emounts  to.    Mr. Mackenzie  has
pledged his reputation that he will
bring tbe cost of production  down
to at least $7.50 per ton and   probably lower.    Mr.   Frecheville has
already Btatcd that tho cost should
not exceed $9 per tonj and  according to Hernard Macdonald's figures
for the Le Roi No. 2 for the month
of November  the cost waB something over $11.50 per ton.    What
with the decline in copper and unskilled men at work   here  and  at
Northport the chances of Mr. Mackenzie making a good showing  for
the big property in hiB charge is
not very  favorable.    \V«   already
bave   Mr.   Mackenzie's statement
of what the cost should  be under
capable management and   it  will
be very interesting to note what
the monthly  figures demonstrate
provided they are correctly   given.
Ho far they have been  withheld
and the English   papers   have already commented very sharp ly on
the fact and have insisted that the
details should   be  announced   as
usual.
If the correet figures are given
out we will very quickly be able
lo ascertain what is really being
accomplished in the Le Roi mine
and at the Le Roi Bmelter with
the class of men at present employed.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The London papers are dubbing
our late visitor Mr. "Fresh Evil"
and are hinting that the new Le
Roi board iB going to be worse for
the shareholder than the old one.—
Poor Shareholders.
President J. J Hill is to address the northwestern graingrow-
eri and stockmen and will demonstrate how much better it is to
bave no competition instead of
competition between railroads.
The Vancouver Province expresses the opinion that the method which has been pursued in the
Le Roi, making a thorough investigation of the properties by an independent expert like Mr. Frecheville—should be employed -vith
regard to the War Eagle and Centre Star.

RELIEF.
There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings iuatant relief, even in the
worst cases. It cures when all else failp.
The Rev. C. F. WELLS, of Villa
Ridge, 111., says: "Your trial bottle of
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for lhe good derived from it. I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore throit
and Asthma ior ten years. 1 despaired
of ever being cured. I saw your advertisement for the eure of thiB dreadful
and tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you had overspoken yourselves,
but resolved to give it u trial, To my
astonishment, the trial acted like u
chaim.   Send me a full size bottle."
Professor Loeb's statement that he
has discovered the secret of life
and death and the means to prevent the latter and extend the former indefinitely, suggests the
pleasing idea of how we would
all get along if some of our very
very dear "friends" really managed to live for ever. Fancy Bernard in 2002—and no change in
his policy!

Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy f >r Asthma and Hay

Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has been
afflicted with Bpasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted my own
skill as well as many others, I chanced to see your sign upon your windows on
130th street, New York, I at once obuired a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the firs, of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtome. I feel tnat I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respect!ully, O. D  PHELPS, M. D.
Dr, Taft Bros. Medicine Co. Feb. 5, 1901,
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numer
ous remedies, but they have all failed, I ran across your advertisement and started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your full
size bottle, and I >m ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and for six
years was unable to work. I am now in the beet of health and am doing business
every day.   This testimony you can make such use of aB you see fit.

LIFE'S SECRET
Professor Loeb's Statement
at Chicago.
UNKNOWN NATURE OF DEATH
A Tentative Description—What the
Papers Claim for the Discovery
A Scientific Triumph.
Professor Loeb made an important statement at the annual meet-
sng of the American Physiological
Society in Chicago.
In a paper entitled "On the Prolongation of Life of Unfertilized
Eggs of the Sea Urchin by Potassium Cyanide," he told a group of
the foremost physiologists in
America that by means of observation of the effects of certain chemicals upon these minute bits of
protohlasm he was ready to make a
tentative definition of the heretofore unknown nature of death.
Death, Prof. Loeb affirmed, was
not a negative process—a simple
breaking down of tissues, as it has
been regarded up to this time—but
an active agent, born with the birth
of the egg and destined, if not
checked to gain the upper hand of
the life instinct, and bring about
extinction.
But greater, even than the apparent discovery of the death agent
in all life substance, is Prof. Loeb'p
announcement that he has been
able to oheck the agent, in the eggs
of the sea urchin, at least, by
means of chemical agents. This, it
is said, means nothing less than
that on a minute scale the secret
of eternal life is in the power of
mankind.

Editor Evening World.
Dear Sir:—I wish to make known
some facta to the voters of Ross
land, and am prompted to do so by
the article headed "The Municipal
Election," which appeared in the
editorial columns of the Rossland
Miner.
Now judging from that article
the editor no doubt, speaks by the
book from what he chooses to term
the citizen's convention. In the first
place I wish to inform the voters
that the labor league haB not
chosen a candidate for mayor, and
have only chosen two candidates
for aldermen, and that the labor
league will be guided by labor
judgment, keeping in mind the
wellfare of the whole of the citizen*, and the whole of the city, in
giving their support to whomsoever
may present themselves for those
positions. If this gentleman whose
identity is at present not disclosed
be a clean, capable and honorable
gentleman, what crime would there
be in giving him the support of the
labor league, but if the reverse be
the characteristics of that gentleman, I am safe in saying ho   could

not get that s upport. And 1 wish
to say in conclusion that if such a
man as above mentioned docs not
present himself, the labor league
will certainly present to the people
a candidate from the thc ranks of
the working people.
