THE SMELTERS.
There was a time not very long
p.go when the smelter question was
a very burning one in Rossland
and a new site was generally selected and agreed upon, by the
papers at least, every other day.
A recent dispatch from Toronto
states Mr. Oooderham announces that the deal (or the Trail
plant between himself and associates and the C. P-, R. is not decided but is still "pending."
'Whether if the sale took place now
it would have anv affect on the
bungled properties is one of those
questions more easily asked than
answered, but presuming that ' 'the
large quantities of low grade ore''
which we of Rossland fondly imagined were possessed by the
Gooderham mines and which
Brother Blackstock has so often referred to, really exist, a transfer of
the Trail smelter would enable
these properties to ship very largely, it having been authoritatively
stated again and again that it was
only the rate demanded for treatment which prevented this being
done last .September.
It is possible of course that if
the same peculiar influence—whatever it is—which now overhangs
the two mines should pervade the
smelter the latter would fade away,
like the ore in the mines, aud close
up for want of smoke or some other
important element. Hut bar little
accidents like this and remembering that "I.e Barren" is professedly a smelter, rather than a mining
man, aud that he would probably
be promoted to Trail camp, Rossland would be the gainer if the
"pending" deal goes through.
The fifth furnace at Norlhport
is nearing completion and it has
been stated that no lurther enlargement of the plant will be undertaken. If this is correct what
is to become of the increasing shipments from the Le Roi, Great
Western and Le Roi No. 2 ? because these mines appear to keep
up a wicked intention of not petering out, having fits, or doing anything else than attending strictly
to business.
Well, if a large concentrating
plant was erected at the mines here,
as rumor savs it is to be, would it
not permit the Northport smelter
in conjunction to treat the increasing output? and is not that the
project whieh the Le Roi people
have in contemplation ?
entrance fee would quickly popularize the entertainments.
Grass aud level ground are both
rather scarce here but the mud
floor of the rink would make a
very fairly good bowling ground
antl there must be a number here
to whom a game of bowles would
ba a welcome relaxation. Lawn
tennis courts we have, but they are
for the few. Cricket is hopeless,
but we have base ball to look at
and bet on.
The trouble is we have no one
whose particular business it is to
look after such mattsis and we do
"as we did last summer.'' Won't
some enthusiastic organizer take
the matter up?
THE COM INC SEASON.
... ■ .
Tit?, summer season is not quite
so short in Rossland as in some
section's of the universe where only
two seasons are recognized, viz:
"Winter and July," but it is quite
short enough and it is also sufficiently near these May days to make one
think* if it is not possible to get a
little more enjoyment out of it than
Rossla'nders usually do. If the
early'Closing bylaw is to come into
force'before long we shall have a
species of continuous Sunday evenings without anything specially to
do, except get into mischief one
way or another. As the city council probably will not have funds
for public baud concerts on the
avenue, would it not be possible to
raise a fund which would insure
at least two "band nights" a week?
The skating rink usually lies idle
all summer and if the free concerts
"don't go" could not the rink be
Utilized Ity having weekly concerts
there. If they were held on regular evenings people would soon
get in the way of going and a low
THE TWENTY-FOURTH.
The announcement that the federal government has determined to
bring in a measure declaring the
24th of this month a perpetual holiday in remembrance of Queen
Victoria will please everyone.
Among the thoughts that first
came to mind when the Queen's
death was announced was the fact
that iu future there would be no
more "Queen's birthday," and the
idea of using the 24th ol" May as
an ordinary workday brought home
the fact of the Queen's demise to
many, so accustomed had we all
become to the famous date. Iu
taking over the bill of a private
member perpetuating the day and
making it a government measure,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said that he
was certain there was a general, if
not unanimous, public sentiment
in favor of the measure. Who or
what section of any known Canadian political party   would  object?
R. D. McMillan, the merchant tailor,
owing to an increase of biu-inces lias
moved next door to the C. 1'. K. ticket
office. tf
ARMOUR'S
ON FIRE
Chicago Beef House Caught
Fire Early Today—Damage $100,000.
Chicago, May 3. —Armour & Co's
beef house, one of the largest buildings at the stock yards, caught fire
atJ3.30 o'clock today and was damaged by flames and water to the
value of 8100,000. On the fourth
floor were 16,000 head of cattle
which were resctud with great difficulty. The building is a five-
story brick and extends nearly a
block.
It contained 64,600 carcasses in
dressed beef. A general alarm was
sent in aud after an hour and a
half Of struggle the firemen succeeded iu conqueriug the flumes.
One hundred men under Ihe direction of Chief Sweeney wei e at work
on the third and fourth floors when
a large ammonia pipe burst and
the stifling odor which arose drove
tbe men (rom their posts to the
open air half blinded by I lie gas
and they escaped with difficulty.
A BIG FIRE
Large Building Burnt to the Ground,
Loaa $25,000.
Thia would not have happened if Ihe
building had been lighted by electric
lights. Besides coal oil is costly, and there
is the trouble of filling lamps, taking
cure of wicks and the breakage of chimney s. Electric light reduces the cost of
your insurance, lessens the danger from

the next sitting of the court to be held
he'e for the trial of actions on the 27th
of this month. Either Hon. Mr. Justice

mild amount of specifying befure the
work of the court commences.
The officials liojie to Ret into their
new offices some time next week is the
building is practically finished now, a
email amount of carpenter work and a
little painting together with some odds
and ends about the place and the court
house will be ready for use. Men are
engaged today in cleaning outiheiuh-
bish, washing windows, and getting Ihi-
place ready for the general finishing
touches. The basement requires another ten daya work lo complete the pai-
titions, Ac. Outside, the temporary
office of the contractor and some outbuildings are being removed and the
giound immediately in front of the ei.-
trance steps is heing levelled up ready
lor use. The furniture and fixings for
Ihe court room and the offices will be ir,
place long before the 27th, so that nheii
"The Court" arrives tho house will be in
readiness.
The c< n ract for the budding only.w B
let for $38,000, hut the contractor could
not complete his job for the money and
he waB let out, tlie building being finished under the direct supervision of the
government.
When the building is completed and
furnished ready for occupation it will
have cost about *46,00il, and the Provincial Government have got a good bargain at the price named. Itis easily
tbe most complete, '.nd allowing for the
size, the handsomest Court House in Ihe
Province to-day.

a pending whisky famine, wholesale liquor dealers say. Ono large
distillery antl warehouse company
in this oily has practically cornered.
the market. For two aud a half
to thirty cents has already been
added to the former price of whisky

higher, because the combined
whisky interests have control of all
brands.

Editor World:
Sir—The facts ol thc case in which I
was charged before 1'olicc Magistrate i
Boultbee today with having stolen a piston red from the White Hear company
are is follows: Four of ua who were!
woi king at the While Hear were chanted
$$2 by (he company for the breaking ol a
piston ro.l and, as wn paid for the btoken
rod I thought we had a right to it. The
company manager, instead of buying a
new rod, welded part, as it turned out,
of thc rod we paid for with part ol
another rod and this was Ihe one I refused to give up, unless the company
would make ns tome allowance or give
us the broken ph cea we hud paid fur.
If we could have got these we could
have done some welding ourselves and
had something to show for our money.
As it is the company has a new rod for
the cost of wcldi.ig and haa charged us
with the price of a new one, while we
have nothing to show lor our good cash
aud do not think the arrangement a fail-
one.
Yours, etc.,
Redmond Hand.
