The much debated question of
the apex of the Slocan Star ledge
has not yet cost the Byron N.
White company anything. It has
a profitable sequel. When notion
was commenced last summer by
the Rabbit Paw people, claiming to
have the apex on the Rabbit Paw
and Heber Fraction, the White
company set to work to prove by
exploration that they had the
apex on the Silversmith ground,
A crosscut tunnel was run in sixty
feet to strike the ledge and a drift
run to the west. This drift is now
in 200 feet and shows one of the
prettiest ore chutes ever opened in
the Slocan country. It is twenty-
four inches wide in the face and
gives average assays of 1500 ozs.
of silver to the ton. The ore is a
steel galena and gray copper, carrying low percentages of lead, The
showing is at a depth of 150 feet.
On the 20th of December the
Byron N. White company added
one more to its long list of dividends, disbursing $25,000 to its
shareholdecs. This brings the total dividends to date up to the
handsohiosuin of $385,000.
The force at .the mine remains
the same, about 65 strong, and 50
tons of ore are sent down the hill
every day. The roads are in excellent condition and the heavy
output will be maintained indefinitely.—Sandon Paystreak.

NO G.&W. WHISKY
A  Boycott Declared   All
Over the Dominion.
GOODERHAM NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Vancouver Trades and labor Council Take Action- All Labor Unions
Asked to Join in the Boycott.
A strong feeling of indignation
iB being expressed all over Canada
regarding the action of the Gooderham syndicate towards the employees of their mines in Rossland.
Vigorous action is being taken to
assist the miners in their struggle.
The following article taken from
the Vancouver World of December
24, expresses the feeling of the
workingmen of the west:
"The labor men of tbe provinoe
are asked to drink no more Gooderham & Worts' whiskies; at least
not until such times as lhe Rossland labor troubles in connection
with tht mines in which the Gooderham syndicate is interested are
finally settled. The Vancouver
Trades and Labor Council held its
regular meeting last night and
after a discussion of the subject
resolved to boycott tbe firm,
"This, perhaps, is the most
aggressive action taken by the
labor people against any of thc
firms who control the mines.
Usually they are so situated that
they are not getatable, but in this
instance the men feel they can hit
one of the chief owners by another
means.
"Gooderham, the manufacturer
of whisky, is connected with the
syndicate of Gooderham & Black-
stock, which owns tho War Eagle
and Centre Star mines at Rons land,
where the strike is at present in
progress.
"Considerable of the productions
of the distillery firm come to this
province, and as the labor element
forms a large portion of the population, the boycott will mean something. The action taken last night
by the Trades aud Labor Council
was decisive and after the matter
had been fully discussed.
"The other unions in the
province will be asked to join in
and make the boycott general.
"Resides inviting all subordinate
unions throughout the province to
join with thorn in eschewing any
of the products of the Gooderham
& Worts distillery, in consequence
of Mr. Gooderham's prominent
identification with the RosBland
mines, in which owners and employees have been at outs for some
time past, it haa been decided to
extend the proscription to other
large concerns in whioh Gooderham capital is invested, notably
the Manufacturers' Life Assurance
Company aud the Bank of Toronto."
Among the letters received by
the Trades and Labor Council of
Rossland, promising aid and support, are many from the extreme
east. The universal feeling of indignation is shown by these letters.
One from one of the largest unions
in Montreal, Quebec, is published
in part.
Montreal, Que., Deo. 26.
Rossland Trades and Labor Council, J. McLaren, Sec.
Dear Sik: I wish to let you
know that by a regular meeting
we took action to boycott the products of the Gooderham & Worts,
distilleries; also we will not patronize the Manufacturers' Life Assurance Company nor the Bank of
Toronto; and we have written to
Mr. Gooderham to compel an investigation of the claims of the
War Eagle and Centre Star mines.

THE YEAR.
The two most conspicuous events
in the history of the English speaking people of the world during the
first year of the new century were,
the death of Queen Viotoria,where-
bythe longest reign in English
'history was brought to a close, and
the assassination of President McKinley. The succession of Edward VII in England and President Roosevelt in the United
States, following in natural sequence, rank next in   importance.
The continuence of the Boer war
all through the year, and the un
pleasant situation in South Africa
at the present moment, keeps attention fixed on that portion of the
Empire.
The successful tour of the Prince
and Princess of Wales around the
Empire, the death of Li Hung
Chang, and the settlement of the
Chinese trouble with the European
and American powers, are
among the stirring matters of
interest which have happened during 1901.
In purely Canadian affairs the
year has been a comparatively uneventful one. Politically the Liberal party is safely entrenched at
Ottawa beyond the reach of their
opponents.
At Victoria a "business administration" under Premier Dunsmuir
has effectively belied its appellation, and with the retirement of
Hon. Mr. Turner, the former premier, to the London office, the political situation remains in an unsettled condition, unsatisfactory to
almost every resident in the province and without much promise for
the immediate future.
All through the year there has
been an unusual amount of unrest in industrial circles and strikes
have been in evidence the world
over.
There haB been a steady inclination towards arbitration and conciliation, however. Queensland
has followed the example of New
Zealand and has. enacted a stringent compulsery arbitration law,
and this plan has also received
strong support in different parts of
Canada and the United States during the year. The important meeting in New York this month between the representative leaders of
labor and capital, which resulted
in the selection of an executive
committee of 36 who will endeavor
to settle future disputes, is well
worthy of special mention.
When the year opened it was
confidently expected that the mineral output of Trail Creek division
would exceed 450,000 tons for the
ensuing twelve months, and but
for the strike this would probably
have happened. As it is the correct total will be found to be under
280,000 tons or thereabouts, when
Gold Commissioner Kirkup's figures for the year are announced
next month.
Early in the year an attempt on
the life of organized labor was
commenced in Rossland and culminated in the lock-out of the
smeltermon at Northport in May
and in the miners strike here in
July, when union and non-union
men alike dropped their work and
walked out.
The Dominion alien labor law
was deliberately broken by the
mine managers, who in defiance
of the plain terms of the act, imported hundreds of men from Missouri and other parts of the United
States, and notwithstanding the
successful conviction of the bogus
contractor, Geiser, the Federal au-
horities refused to enforce their own
statute.
Bernard Macdonald, the chief instigator of the attack on organized
labor was ignominiously dismissed
from his position as general manager of the Le Roi mine and smelter
and his lieutenants have shared
his fate. Whitaker Wright, ohce a
power in the English financial
world is now in outer darkness,and
as the year closes his enforced
withdrawal from all connection
with this camp is hopefully looked
for.
' The commercial interests of
Rossland have Buffered severely
from the' trouble with the unions
and one of the five banking establishments doing busines in the
camp has announced its withdrawal from business on the 15th
of next rfionth.
From an industrial standpoint
it cannot be truthfully said
that the outlook at the close
of the year is at all hopeful
Undoubtedly an attempt, will be
made to cut wages all around, and
if this should prove successful in
the long run, its effect on business
generally will be very marked.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Three carloads of negroes are reported on their way to Sidney,
Cape Breton, to work in the newly
developed industries of the town.
Sarah Bernhardt's theory of
keeping young would seem to be
incomprehensible to the average
mind. It doesn't matter what else
you do, says the divine Sarah, if
you only work—"work, that is my
hygiene."
The Kailo Board of Trade has a
sub-committee at work drafting a
resolution for submission to the
Federal Boards of Trade. The object of the resolution is, "the readjustment of certain provincial enactments which work hardships on
the mining industry." The greatest hardship the mining industry
has to contend against is the continual passage of foolish resolutions by boards of trade that should
never have been born.—Nelson Tribune.
The output of smelting ore from
the Silver King mine for forty days
ending November 30th, 4,875 tons,
averaging 15.50 oz. silver per ton,
and 4.75 per cent copper; approximate gross value of contents £18,-
089.

There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings instant relief, even in tin-
worst cases. It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa
Ridge, 111., says: "Your trial bottle ol
Asthmalene received in good condition.
1 cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for the good derived from it. I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore thrml
and Asthma lor ten years. I despaired
ol ever being curec'. I saw your advertisement (or the cure of thiB dreadful
nnd tormenting disease, A. tlmui, nnd
thought you had ovcrspoken yourselves,
but resolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like a
ohaim.   bend me a full si_o bottle."

Dr. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.
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 spasmodic asthma Ior 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 obtiir-ed a bottle of Asthmalene. My wile
commenced taking it about the first; of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottle bcr Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectlully, O. D  PHELPS, M. D.
Dr. Taft Bros. Medicine Co. Feb. 5, igoi,
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma Ior 22 years. I have tried numerous 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 am ever gta'teful. I have a family of four children, and for six
years was unable to work. I am now in the best ol health and am doing business
every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as you see fit.

Editor Evening World.
Dear sir—While reading Sunday morning's Miner I saw a reply to a letter published in the
Evening World of Deo. 27 regard-
ins Hooper, who left a good job at
a Ymir mine to come to Rossland
to betray his fellow workmen. I
am not surprised at this creature,
who would sell his birthright, as
Esau did, for a mess of pottage.
Hooper has paid into the Rossland Miners union $26, including
his initiation fee. He has received
from the said union $100 in cash
benefits and $77 relief benefits,
making a total of $177, and the
union has his receipts for that
amount. Yet he claims he has received only a tithe of what he
paid in.

And give bim a rousing bull potlatch.
