The financial year of the Le Roi
mine oame to an end on June 30,
says the financial critic of the London Mining Journal, and holders
are keenly anxious to know how
they stand. Rumors have lately
circulated that the oompany was
in difficulties and threatened with
reconstruction. Shareholders have
the assurance of the directors that
these reports are nnfounded, but
as the accounts will probably not
be presented for some months to
some examination of the published
results may be useful.
The year ending June 30, 1902,
left the oompany with a deficit
of .£48.000. At the meeting held
on January 3 last it was .stated
that the operations for the six
months ending December 31 had
resulted in a profit of ,£90,000, and
si&oe that date the manager's estimates of the profits month by
month have aggregated 156,300, or
say £11,600, for the six months to
June 30,1903, thus raising the total estimated profit on shipments
to .£101,600 for the year.
During the first six months production would seem to hare been
pressed above the average shipping
grade of the mine with a view to
reduce the indebtedness of the
company to the Bank of Montreal.
This policy of depleting the higher
garde ore was adversely commented on at the annual meeting; but
noting the disturbance whioh has
sinco occurred in financial circles in
^merioa, shareholders have probably reason to be grateful for i the
forethought of the directors in
strengthening the position of the
oompany before the crisis.
The operations ol tbe oompany
have been considerably interrupted
by Btrikes, | refering to the Fernie
trouble,] and the manager has stated that the profit for February and
March (not reckoned in the above
estimate) would probably be wiped
out by the enforced closing down
in those months. The mine is
now shipping lower grade ore,
and the return for July even showed a small loss.
It is to be observed that the
profit on shipments does not represent all the improvement in the
financial position. At June 30,
1902, the reserves of ore were esti
matee at about 447,000 tons, of an
average value of $9.96 per ton,
while the second class dump was
estimated to contain 84,000 tons, of
a value of (7.50 per ton. In these
valuations the oopper in  the ore

was taken at 11 i cents per pound.
Throughout the fiscal year copper
has- stood above this value; at
the date of the annual meeting it
was 124 cents per pound, and at
June 30 was 14$.
The importance of thia advance
may be easily seen by referenoe to
the annual report. The oopper in
the seoond class dump was estimated at .837 per ton, and during
the year some 10;000 tonB have
been shipped, the value of the
dump being thus reduoed by $76,-
000; but the rise in the prioe of
copper would give an adnitional
value of over $35,000 to the re-
maining 74,0000 tons, or an increased value of over half a dollar
per ton on the second olass dump.
The advance must have also improved the value of the general ore
reserves and of the stock of ore and
matte at the smelter. Data are
lacking to estimate thia gain, but
it is dear that the position must
be better than it was at June 30,
1902.
With regard to developments in
the mine it is lo be regretted that
the board have reoently stopped
issuing the monthly report. Of
course, in a trading company the
board have to consider very carefully the publication of any information whioh may "give away"
the trading polioy of the company;
and it they have decided that it is
necessary not to tell the railways
how their levels are progressing, it
is for them to deoide. But as there
may have been some inadvertence,
I think that shareholders would do
well to enquire into the matter,and
to petition that the ordinary details
of development at prominent points
of the mine should still be oom-
munioated to them.
The laBt information before us
with regard to development is that
in May a rich ohute of ore, probably the Mulligan chute, had been
enoountered at the 1050 level, that
its extent was unknown, that a
drift was being run to intercept it
at the 1200 level, and that development at the 1350 level was still disappointing. By this time more
must be known—probably both
good and bad—and It seems hard
that shareholders should not be advised on this head by the board,
since Information always leaks out
to strangers.
Taking into acoount the profit
earned for the year, the improvement in oopper  values,   and   the

Hill is onoe more again up against
it in the Canadian law courts.
This time injunctions are being
taken out by the city of Vanoouver
and by the Canadian Paoifio Railway.
The city's application was based
on a plea of trespass on the crossing of the railway over the bridge
belonging to the oity spanning
False creek.
The application iB the culmination of a disagreement between the
oity and the oompany with regard
to the terms upon whioh the oompany entered the oity.

the question of the right to cross
the tracks at Sapperton, near

Wednesday night took out 50 men
to put in a diamond across the C.P.
R. tracks. When the regular C.
P. R. train came along at 8 o'olook
it found the track torn up, and a
diamond put in. A Spscial train
was run out with a orowd of Canadian Pacific officials on board, accompanied by a gang of railroaders
who immediately started to tear up
the track that the Hill men had
laid.
For a short time it looked like a
general fight, but the C. P. R. men
retired when the others showed
themselves ready to meet an emergency of that kind. The C. P. R.
people then backed a looomotive
on to a diamond ,|and undertook to
obstruot construction in that way,
but the V. N. W. & Y. men went
right ahead putting down their
traok. Later in the day when tbe
injunction proceedings were taken,

ahead rapidly without interruption.

THE LE ROI.
An interesting aocount of the
Le Roi mine appears in the London Mining Journal, the beBt news
paper of its class in Great Britain,
which is presented in another column. It may be noted that the
email loss for July shipments from
the mine,amounting to $1500, does
not take into consideration the
profits of the smelter which belong to the mine, and which accrue to the shareholders. Further,
that the strikes of high grade ore,
goiug far, if not altogether, to replace that taken out last year, the
discovery of which was duly
ohronicled in the Would at the
time of its occurrence, necessarily
have not been taken into account
in the able resume of the coudition
of the mine whioh is here presented
Rosslanders may congratulate
themselves that the premier mine
of the camp is in a position to pay
a dividend, although, perhaps, it
were better that this be not done,
inasmuch as the mine has always
Buffered from the lack of a working
capital, a fact which the public,as a
rule, do not take into consideration
in commenting upon this fine property.
Taking into consideration the
present price of the shares, the
mine is . valued at $1,000,000
and as the profits for the year were
over $500,000 the property is paying shareholders 50 per oent on
their sorip. Under these circumstances it is indeed wonderful that
the publio is taking the estimate of
the bears and Belling the stock for
a fifth of its value. The circumstance is ascribed to the persistence
of rumors, rumors, it may be here
said, entirely without foundation,
of an unfavorable nature coming
from this camp.   It is a pity.
at one of tbe meetings in London
last year of the Colonial premiers.
He then Baid that though Canadian
imports from the United Kingdom
had somewhat increased since the
preferential tariff had been in
operation, yet the imports from the
United States had increased much
more during the same period. In
a comparison Mr. Chamberlain was
led to form a wrong conclusion
from ignoring the fact that the
character of the imports from the
two countries is very dissimilar.
Canadian importations from the
United States consist very largely
of raw materials and some other
commodities not produoed in the
United Kingdom and the general
industrial activity in Canada naturally led to larger importations
of these things. And it is the
prosperity of Canada whioh resulted from this industrial aotivity,
that has enabled us to import more
largely from Great Britain, favored
as tbe manufacturers in that country have been in their competition
with Canadian and American rivals
by the reduotion of one-third in
the Canadian tariff.
Now a change seems to have
taken plaoe in publio opinion in
Great Britain as to the benefit of
this preferential treatment. That
suction of .the British press whioh
is supporting Mr. Chamberlain's
proposal for tariff revision, finds in
the results of the preference granted
by Canada to imports from the
United Kingdom a strong argument in favor of the Colonial Secretary's scheme. It is pointed out
that while Canadian imports from
the United States have increased
11 per cent, those from the United
Kingdom have increased 20 per
cent. Moreover the dutiable imports from the Mother Country
have grown by $20,000,000 during
the Bix years ih whioh the preferential tariff has been in operation,
while during the six years preceding that, they decreased $11,000,000
These are object lessons that can
not be ignored, and while Canada's
aotion was not at first regarded as
of much value, it iB now receiving
mere appreciation and ie likely to
be referred to very frequently during the present discussion of tariff
issues as a proof of what preferential arrangements between British
communities can achieve in building up inter-Empire trade.

A PLEASANT PARTY
PREFENTIAL TARIFF
The only returns of the yacht

At last it would seem that official and public opinion in Great
Britain, says the Vancouver News
Advertiser, is beginning to realise
the substantial benefits that the
preference given in the Canadian
tariff to importations from the
United Kingdom confers on British manufacturers. Those who
have followed the course of events
in connection with this matter will
be aware tbat the preference given
by the Dominion Parliament, with
out any suggestion for something
iu return, waB received somewhat
disdainfully in Great Britain.
Members of the Imperial government and of both Houses of Far
liament referred to it as an instance of Canadian goodwill to the
Mother Country, but suggested
that the value of the concession
was rather of a sentimental than
material character. Even a person generally so well informed on
such matters and so sympathetic
with Colonial action as Mr. Chamberlain, appeared to regard the
preference as of little benefit, if
we remember correctly his remarks

NEW ZEALAND'S LATEST BUDGET
Seddon Will Further Tax Absentee
Landlords—Increased Gold
Output-
Wellington, N. Z., Aug. 27.—Hon
R. Seddon, the premier, has delivered hia seventh budget statement.
He congratulated the colony on its
oontinued prosperity and foreshadowed a surplus of over £500,000 on
the current year's transactions. The
past year showed a surplus of
£303,000 and a revenue of £6.447,-
000. He proposed to raise a loan
of £1,000,000 next year. He had
been advised against going to tbe
London market, but he did not anticipate any difficulty in raising it
within the oolony. Over £1,000,-
000 was now available for publio
works. He at the same time
urged reduotion of expenditure.
The Customs revenue, notwithstanding the large reductions made
in 1900, showed an increase of 10
per oent. He indicated an increase
in the  land  tax as  regarded ab
sentees. The new valuation in
large centres showed an increase ef
over ten millions. Next year's
gold output he estimated at £2,000,-
000, tbe largest since the year
1871.
It was proposed to hold an International Exhibition in 1905 on a
la.ge scale, to oelebrate the completion of the through lines of railway in the North and South Islands
He would deal with the question of
preferential trade on grounds of
patriotism and love of his oountry,
not with the object of gain. He
proposed to impose a substantial
duty on certain articles of foreign
manufacture, leaving it to the
Mother Country to respond if she
thought fit.
He expressed his opinion that
complete investigation would show
that the United Kingdom was los
ing ground industrially compared
with Germany and America, and
that every well-wisher of the Empire would be staggered at the
result ot the pending inquiry. Premier Seddon estimated an increase
of £85,0CO ia the revenue of next
year and of £31,000 in the expenditure, and stated that a comparison of the public debt with public
and private assets, gave £6 assets
for every £- of debt, explaining
that people abroad failed to recognize the fact that the railways of
New Zealand were the property of
the state.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY, B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. Q.
CAMP HEDLEY ia the most talked of camp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines whioh 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. The Nickel Plate mines have expended 1300,000 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 the Nickel Plate group of olaims 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 Princeton and Keremeos, and protected Irom all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that rots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining oentres 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, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast they will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill iB
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 oome through this
townsite, whioh is looated in the can' re of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre 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.    JBBin *"Towns!in,B-c'

THE LACROSSE MATCH
Combined Teams Beat Victoria by Three Games
to One.
The Rossland team, reinforced
by three good men from Nelson
who stopped over, Messrs. Greyer
biehl, McNab and McCorvie, defeated the Victorias yesterday after
noon at laorosse by two games to
one. Greyerbiebl did excellent
work for RosBland, stopping several
goals in splendid style and con
tributing muoh to the victory
gained by the local team. Charles
Summers and Roy Clothier both
did good work. Had the Victorias
sent up their best team there is no
doubt but that they oould have got
away with Rossland, and in all
probability Nelson also. As it is
they have suffered for their pre
sumption. It is not a square deal
on the Carnival committee to have
sent up the aggregation that was
despatched, especially as the committee had gone to the expense of
$000 to bring the boyB here. Many
people who came here simply to see
the play of a good laorosse team
were disappointed and consequent-
were justifiably angry, and it is
hoped that the Viotoria press will
take cognizance of the matter. On
the other hand the Victorias were
true sportsmen. They took no more
than their expenses and willingly
stayed to give the Carnival a
chance to recoup, and they played
a olean game. The Nelsons held
up the Carnival for $300, their expenses amounting to no more than
$90 and refused to stay for the third
day without an additional $100 be-

promise held out by the develop
monts announced, when they were
announced, it would seem that the
fiscal year must show a great improvement on 1902. How much
will be allowed to appear in the
aocounts will depend upon the
progress of events during the Bix
months before they appear. If the
mine does well this autumn and
oopper keeps its price, a small
dividend oould easily be paid for
the year ending June, 1903, but if
the now ourrect year does badly
the board will probably hold their
hands, for the company has never
had any working oapital and has
always suffered from the faot.
At the present price the mine is
valued at ,£200,000, on which sum
over 50 per cent was earned last
year. The Etrusoan Copper company, with debentures to the
amount of ,£200,000, is valued in
the market at over four times the
price of the Le Roi. I wonder why?

Did You
Notice It?
Last year when siphons weren't so cheep
AU thought them worth their pi ice;
But now that they have been reduced
They think it awfully nice.
Last year they were three fifty,
But now they're only two;
And I am sure if you're in style
That they will just su't you.
At Goodeve's buy some Sparklets,
Even their price is much less;
And then you'll have your soda
Without a bit of mess.
So buy one and be ready,
And when a friend drops in
He'll softly say "my, that is gocd,
Where did you get it Jim?"
