The Belcher mining company is
preparing to erect a 50-ton Vulcan
smelter on Lambert oreek, Boundary, for the treatment of Belcher
and Hawkeye ores. The first furnace installed will be designed as a
unit of a 250-ton plant, to be complete later. The ores have been
thoroughly tested and there is no
question as to the [successful operation of the plant. Belcher ore
carries a high percentage of sul.
phur; the Hawkeye ore contains
sufficient silica to flux the ores of
both mines mixed. The ores are
practically free from arsenic, and
but little coke will be necessary.
The process is comparatively simple and the cost of treatment will
be very low.v

McBRIDE VISITS CAMP
Hakes a Speech to a Select
Few in the Campaign
Rooms.
Premier R. McBride oame into
camp last night and went away
this morning. He was met at tbe
station by a few Conservative
friends and went with them to the
Conservative Committee rooms
where he made them a speech
whioh is stated not to have promised muoh beyond generalitea.
Rossland would have liked tte
premier to have got out on the
publio platform where the camp
would,have given him that good
hearing which is due hiin on ac-
oount of his position and on account of his personal popularity
whioh he is stated to enjoy at the
ooast.
Ab it was few people round camp
saw him at all and would be inclined to listen all the more to
the reports whioh are being circulated to his disadvantage were it
not that the Miner this morning
oame out and "damned him with
faint praise."

$8000 to $10,000.
The ore shipments from Repub
Ho to the Granby, Hall, Tacoma
and Crofton smelters for the six
months ending June 30, 1603 aggregated a total of 371 cars. The
average per oar was 30 tons. This
brings the tonnage up to 11,730 or
1950 tons per month. Of the total tonnage 4380 tons were shipped
in June, which is most gratifying
as is shows the strides that are being made in the ore production of
the oamp.

Burglaries, Shooting, Stabbing and
Private Revenge Now  the
Recognized News-
Really Rossland is getting quite
interesting. In face of the worthy
mayor's remarks, lately ■ publicly
made in the oity council, as to the
moral elevation of the oamp, for
whioh he held himself mainly responsible, during hiB term of office,
it is disheartening to read the records of the police department of
late. Publio lawlessness is certainly gaining a headway whioh it
never before obtained in the city.
Last night a patrolman waB observed dragging a drunken man along
Columbia avenue, lying prostrate
ou the ground by a braoeletted
wrist as if he were a beast and not
a human being. Other drunks
were also incarcerated; a waitress
gets indignant at the attentions of
a too fresh admirer and lays him
out with a bottle. Hit the wrong
man too, they say. Three burglaries are recorded within the week
and the burglars are still at large.
Biting and gouging were introduced
here laBt month, and last night gun
play waB naturally in order on Columbia avenue. One Gleason had
an altercation with a miner named
Martial, and drew a gun upon him
on the viaduot on West Columbia
avenue. The gun play had no
effect luokily, and it is alleged that
the assailed chased the offender
with a knife. Patrolman Stewart
appeared upon the scene, armed,
and promptly judged both offenders. Within a short time another
row ocourred at the Central, John
McKinnon got into a fuss with a
Finn named Otto Jackson who
whipped out a knife and struck
McKinnon in the lower part ot
abdomen. McKinnon had an operation performed on him this
morning and waB removed to tbe
hospital. The serious cases were
all remanded this morning, that is
to say all the police captured and
the oamp if watching for the next
development.
The toughs round town are by no
means disheartened. At the worst
they expeot to get off with a few
days confinement in a private sitting room back of the city hall,
where their friends can Bend them
bouquets and hotel meals.
In view of our late moral improvement, mayoralty announced,
the state of things is really very
disheartening.
We have the greatest assortment and
best values in Miners'Bhoes in the city.

3QENERAL  MANAGEB:
P. O.IBoi 902 Rossland, B. C,
BRITAIN AND FRANCE
The visit of M. Loubet, the
Frenoh President, to London, says
the Vancouver News Advestiser,
completes the round of official
courtesies between the two nations
that was opened by the visit of
King Edward to Paris. On all
hands it is admitted that the visit
of the British sovereign to France
was a happy idea and was completely successful through the tact
and oourtesy displayed by him.
The King is a thorough "man of
the world," and his speeches at
the different public functions in
whioh he took part at the Frenoh
capital were admirable and adroit.
They had nothing of that effusive-
probably oovering the whole thing
It was taken up by the counoil last
week, but encountering some opposition waB laid over for today. The
advantages olaimed for the pipe
line are threefold. In the first
place it would help the city in
case of a conflagration in the
neighborhood of the houses near
the Black Bear. This would be
done by conneoting the lower tank
of the Le Roi, which is situated at
the Black Bear and which is again
connected with the upper tank
back of the house whioh was known
as Colonel Peyton's, but is now occupied by the superintendent of
mine. By cutting off the supply
from the main on Kootenay avenue
at the time of fire, it is claimed
that a greater head of water could
be available for a short time to
help putting out any conflagration
one that might be dangerous before it oould gather any headway.
The second advantage would be
that the boilers of the Le Roi
would be ensured of a perennial
aupply of water from the oity and
thirdly the Le Roi No. 2 could use
the flume from Sheep creek, now
bringing water to the Le Roi, for
conoeutrating purposes.
The objection raised was that
there would be no revenue derivable trom the construction of suoh a
Shirt waists and dainty
linen are made delightfully
clean and fresh with Sunlight Soap.
iB
that the War Eagle at some future
date should hang up a great reduction plant while it was leisurely, the more leisurely the better
for the War Eagle, debating the
question of intrioate water records
and the meaning of the Water Act
as applied to its munioipal uses.
For if the War Eagle lets this gp
by default it has no oase hereafter.

BesB  about   them  for  which   the
speeches of the German Emperor j PlPe> and further that even if its
are sometimes criticised.   But they
were felt by those to whom they
were addressed tp be sincere and to
accurately depict the feelinga and
views of the speaker and from the
references to tbem in the French
journals of nearly all shades. of
opinion, they evoked a sympathetic response from the beBt element
in France. It was not a faot that
he reoeived such an enthusiaetic
popular welcome aB was accorded
to the Tsar of Russia. It would
have been surprising and unexpected had it been otherwise. In the Tsar
the French recognised an ally and
there iB no doubt that the Franco-
Russian alliance is still very popular in France, although impartial
observers may think that Russia
and not France is the country
whioh derives the aubstantial benefit from tbe Dual Alliance. In
King Edward the Parisians saw
the ohief of a nation with whom
their relations had been strained
of late yeara, and on more occasion actually oritioal. While well
affected to the King personally,
the people maintained a certain
dignity and reserve in the way in
whioh they welcomed him. But
before the visit of three days was
conoluded, this attitude towards
the King had much changed. The
courage he diaplayed in appearing
on the streets at the risk of meeting popular manifestations of an
unfriendly character, produced a
great impression and in both countries it ie realised that the King's
visit haB done much to bring about
a return of a more friendly feeling
between the two. peoples. The
proof of this, aa (ar as the British
people are concerned, has been
afforded in the heartiness of the
welcome given to M. Loubet whenever he appeared in London, and
Frenoh amour propre has been
gratified at the respect paid to the
head of the Republic on the other
side of the Channel.
THE WATER SUPPLY.
One of the points to be brought
up at tbis evening's meeting of the
oouncil is that of a proposal to connect the lower water tank of tbe
Le Roi with the city main along
Kootenay avenue. The job would
not be a very costly one, some $400
construction was advisable on other
grounds, it would be better to wait
awhile and Bee how the city taxes
were coming in before hunching
into any fresh expenditure. In
taking this ground the Chairman
of the Finance Committee did well,
but it must be remembered that
upon the other hand the dry season
is approaching, and that the pipe,
if now built, might be of great service. Further that a revenue is
certainly derivable from its con'
struction, inasmuch as the Le Roi
and the Le Roi No. 2 would, by
some mutual arrangement between
thembelves, pay for that water
Indeed there is no doubt that the
latter would gladly pay for the
pipe itself, were the oity oouncil
stiff backed enough to assure them
tbat there should be no interference
on the part of the War Eagle with
water supplied by the city for industrial purposes,
Therein lies the great objection
to the whole scheme. The War
Eagle might take it as a peg to
hang a lawsuit upon. But it must
be borne in mind that while the
city counoil iB hanging fire over
this water question, the problem of
concentration for the camp is held
unsettled. The White Bear may
be forced by their indecision to go
down to Trail, and the Le Roi No,
2 compelled at a later date to take
their larger plant down to the same
place,
It seems to tbe World that it
would be a good thing for the counoil to build the pipe line, the expense of which, after all, would be
borne by the revenue arising out of
the profits of the water department,
whioh are yearly used on oapital
account, or, if the oouncil would
make the necessary guarantee,
doubtless by one of the mines
themselves. Undoubtedly the
water thus supplied, were it used
for the boilers of the Le Roi or for
the concentrator of the Le Roi No.
2, would be supplied for industrial
purposes. It would then be up to
Manager Kirby to fight the case
and, according to the opinion of
the best legal talent in this oampt
and judging by the experience of
Nelson, he would not have a legal
leg to stand on.
It is far better that the question
were settled in this manner than

THE EVENING WORLD, ROSSLAND B. C, JULY 14, 1903.
AN OBJECT
LESSON
Nelson's Finances for Past
Six Months.
PUBLIC OWNERSHIP FRANCHISES
City of the Lake Shows the Advantage of  Municipal Enterprise.
Tbe following figures, taken from
tbe Nelson Tribune, give an excellent idea of what is being done
by the municipality of Nelson, and
ought to form an instructive picture to our municipal oouncil. It
will be seen at a glance tbat the
taxes on real estate form but 18
per cent of the total revenue,whereas revenue arising from munioipal
enterprise suoh as water, light,
scavenging, sewer, cemetery .weighing and measuring total 58 per
cent. The Nelson property owner
oannot say that on bis back are all
the hardens, but the Nelson property owner haB been wise enough
to see that no grafts in the way of
the giving away of publio franchises
have been run in upon the city.
It will be noted that the schools
are oheaper than they are here and
that the grant on the other hand is
bat half that whioh Rossland receives. The salaries do not out so
large a figure, nor are health officers and oity solicitors so prominently on the disbursements.
Mayor Dean has been in office
six months. It is time he showed
up his balance sheet and let Rossland know where it is at. Is he
ashamed of it?
"Six months of the year 1903
have paseed, and the city treasurer
has prepared a statement of the
city's receipts and expenditures for
that time.
"Tbe financial statement below,
when compared with the first six
months of last year, shows very
clearly that the city business affairs are being carefully and
economically managed.

For the first, six months in 1902,

$6,515.83 less than the six months
of this year. The disbursements
for the same period last year were
$50,246.15, or $2,437.74 in excess
of this year's. Last year not a
dollar was placed in tbe sinking
fund, all of whioh ($11,700) was
plaoed in the sinking fund this
year, which if deducted from the
expenditures shows that the aotual
expenditures for the first six
months this year have been $14,-
137.74 less than during the same
time last year.

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
[Adopted at RevclHtoko, September 13th, 1902.]
1. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of thu party iu matters ot provincial roads and
trails; the ownership and control of railways
and the development of the agricultural resource* of the province as laid down in tho
platform adopted in October, 1899, which" is an
follows;
"To actively aid in tho construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of tho
province and tho building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of tliS) province will admit, and tho
adoption of tho principle thai no bonus should
be granted to nny railway company which
does not give tho government of the provinco
control or rates over linos bonuscd, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in the development of the agricultural resources of tho
province,"
2. That in the meantime and until tho railway policy above set forth can bo accomplished, a general railway aot bo passed, giving
freedom to construct, railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted iu such extensive railway
construction in tho United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
3. That to encourage the mii.ing industrv,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should bo
on the basis of apercontage on the net profits.
4. That tho government ownership of telo
phono systems should be brought about as a
first step in the acquisition of public utilities.
5. That a portion of overy coal area hereafter to ho disposed of should be resorved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may bo
easily accessible, if thoir operation becomes
necessary or advisable.
ti. That In tho pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
should bo taken for tho general preservation of
forests by guarding against t ho wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
the provinco should persevere in tho effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor,
8. That tho matter of better terms in the
way of subsidy and appropriations for tho
province should be vigorously pressed upon tiro
Dominion government.
9. That tho silver-lead industries of the provinco he fostored and encouraged by the imposition of increased customs duties ou lead and
lead products imported into Canada, and that
the Conservative members of the Dominion
House bo urged to support any motion introduced for sucha. purpose,
10. That as Industrial disputos almost invariably result in great loss and injury both to the
parties directly concerned and to the public,
legislation should be passed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
11. That it is advisable to foster tho manufacture of the raw products of tho province
within tho province as far as practicable by
means of taxation on thesaid raw produots.sub-
ject to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured in British Columbia.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY,
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen ©ity, B. (2.
CAMP HEDLEY is tbe most talked ot oamp in the province, and Bituated in the oentre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. Tbe Nickel Plate mineB have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides tbe Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Prinoeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast (hey will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large-sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, whioh is located in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls.
Lots for Sale $2 to $ 10 Per Front Foot.    *®m in'"Towns iniB-c-

NELSON NOT GUILTY-
Nothing to   Do  W th th* Spelling of
Lardo
The name of the district in whioh
Camborne is situate should be
changed from Lardeau to Fish
River, and the name of the district in which Trout Lake and Ferguson are situate should be named
Trout Lake. Before mineral was
discovered in paying quantities,
the country on Fish creek and
around Trout lake was known as
"Lardeau," and the only way of
reaching it was from Revelstoke
via the east arm of Upper Arrow
lake. In 1892, G. B Nagle, who
has made his hea dquarters in Revelstoke for a dozen years, purchased
a piece of land at the head of Kootenay lake, not far from the mouth
of Lardeaux river, and started a
townsite whioh be named Lardo.
About the same time, if we are
not mistaken, James M. Kellie,
who also makes his headquarters
at Revelstoke, secured an interest
in a piece of land at the bead of
the east arm of Upper Arrow lake
for a townsite, and christened it
Lardeau. From this it would appear that the. original spelling of
the word Lardeax was ohanged in
both instances by men who made
their home at Revelstoke. Since
then the people on Kootenay lake
spell thc word Lardo and those of
Revelstoke spell it Lardeau. A
map issued by the provincial government in 1895 shows the town of
Ltrdeau on the east arm of Upper
Arrow lake and tbe town of Lardo
at the upper end of Kootenay lake.
It also shows a Lardo oreek empty*
ing into the upper or western end
of Trout lake, and the Lardo river,
running from lhat lake to Kootenay lake. The only object the
Tribune haB in referring to the
matter is to show that no one in
Nelson had anything whatever to
do with changing the spelling of
the word Lardeaux.—Nelson Tribune.
