After running continuously for a
pariod of two years the Northport
smelter is dosed down for alterations whioh will oooupy sometime
as they will have to be carried out
on an extensive scale. The furnaces want partioular attention
and the sampling mill will be
doubled in oapaoity. In faot
some portion of the delay is on*
doubtedly attributable to the latter as the oase brought against the
smelter by the Le Roi No. 2 tor
hand sampling and the ruling obtained has praotioaUy plaoed hand
sampling out of the field as far as
Rossland mines are concerned-
When starting up the smelter
hopes to have ooncluded contracts
for custom ore whioh will supply
the necessary flux. It is also stated
that tha smelter will put in a converter, such as that which is already
in use at the Granby. The objeot
will be to save freight in the long
haul to the refineries in the easl, as
the converter will do a large proportion of the first stages of refining itself, and thus impurities in
the matte, which vary from 35 to
50 per cent., will not have to be
paid for in the same large quantities for transportation. The saving effected here is the justification
for the expense of the experiment.
All thiB will naturally take some
time but as soon as the sampling mill is finished and the contracts made together with one or
more furnaces rehabilitated, the
reduotion of ore will go on without
waiting for the whole of the fur-
naoes to be again in working order.
I n the meantime as the yards are
now full the shipment of ore from
the Le Roi has been stopped ae
there is no room to store it without inourring extra expense. The
alterations to the smelter began a
week ago and shipping was kept
up for the sake of those employed in
breaking down ore to the last possible moment. Now these have
been laid off and the work of the
mine will be confined for the major
portion of the month to the development whioh will go on as usual.
When resumption of work is again
full there will be more men employed than before as the smelter
will be in better oondition to re
ceive pre.
Daring the oonvalesoenoe of
Manager Parrish John Maokenzie,
who was formerly favorably known
in oonneotion with the management of ibis famous mine, will be
in charge.

Wash. St,
Newohwang, April 5.—The press
boat Fawn, plaoed unaei arrest yesterday was released today by order
of general Kouropatkin. The
Fawn wae detained because she
had passed between the lints, having oome in directly from Chemulpo. Bhe was released on oondition
that Bhe left port. Her release
was brought about by United States
consul Miller, who has the oonfi-
denoe of the Russian authorities.
Though ot British ownership, the
British consul declined to aot in
the case.
The release of the Fawn immediately before the oase was forced
upon the oognizance of the British
consul, contributed to the amelior-
tion of a new situation whioh has
arisen in the past two days through
the arrest and detention for some
hours of a Britiah oonduotor of the
Chinese railway at a station on the
west Bide of the river, inside the
port limits. This incident, together
wilh the detention of the Fawn haB
prolonged the stay of the British
gunboat Espiegle, whioh is interpreted by eome as a British reconsideration of Russian jurisdiction
over Newchwang as provided in the
declaration of martial law.
Tientsin, April 5 —It is stated

SOUTH POLAR VOYAGE
Important    Geographical
and Scientific Results
Obtained
Auckland,«. Z. April 6—The
results of the reoent South Polar
Expedition the ships of whicb
have just returned, in addition lo
the geographical discoveries,
aohieved important scientific ends.
The task of extricating the Discovery from the ice was so difficult
tbat at one time it was feared that
t be vessel would have to be aban
doned, and preparations were made
to remove the instruments, etc.
Wilkesland was found to have
no existence, and the Discovery
sailed over the region where that
plaoe has been charted since the
time of Explorer Robb.
Muoh information was secured
regarding higher forms of life,
mostly of birds inoluding the emperor penguin, whioh hitherto hae
never been found. The only vegetation found was masses of lichens
but fossil remains of higher forms
of plant life.
The main praotioal interest ol
the expeditions lies in the results
of the continuous magnetio observations in the neighborhood ol tne
magnetio pole. Thousands ol
photographs were taken.

THE CITY LIGHTS.
Tonight tbe Fire, Water and
Light committee will report, if they
have carried out their piogramme,
as to what is the actual light afforded by the alleged 16 candle mean-
descents supplied with xwatt power.
If they are stumped as to the
measurement the Would offers
them another method. - This is to
take an iron rod and place a single
lighted candle (standard) at two
leet distance. Next place an incandescent, allegedly 16 candle
power, at eight feet distance and
see whether the shadow cast in
both cases is W the Bame intensity.
If bo the lamp is rea'ly of 16 candle power. If not bring itclostr
until the shadow is the same. If
this occurs at 6 feet then the lamp
is of 9 candle power and not of 16
The intensity of tho light varies ac
cording to the square of the clin-
tanoe, which a little thinking wi)!
show to be the caBe. In the lirst
instance the light varied as 4 is to
64, or IG to 1. In the second instance it would be as 36 is to 4, or
as 9 is to 1. To get any reform
through the City Council, each individual member, must keep pegging away.
Twice during the presont war
havo the Russians been reported
as having captured Japanese mer
ohant vessels and on both occasions
the captures have been destroyed.
These tactics are quite [.fair as the
objeot* in war is to do the enemy
as much damage as possible,but the
Russians do not gain'anything by
it directly. The Japs have captured several vessels and then have
plaoed a prize crew on board and
sent themselves to barbdur where
they have been Bold and a certain
amount ol money has in consequence gone into the Japanese exchequer. The^Ruseians *;have not
been able to do],this [because tbey
have no ports into which to send
the vessels, and then even if they
had, the risk of recapture is too
great, as the Japanese are virtually
in command of the sea.
THE LEAD BOUNTY.
A year ago the World speaking
of the lead bounty said that tbe
best way of granting it was to give
it for the production of so much
lead ore. Tbat is to say that the
bounty was not to be on refined
lead but upon lead ore and should
be paid to the miner and not to the
smelter. For this extremely absurd
view the World waB called down
right and left and many a lead pro
duoer joined in the calling. Well,
' the bounty did not go that way; it
was to be given to the lead miner
but he had to have his lead smelted
in Canada. This gave the Trail
and Nelson smelters, the only reduotion works having lead stacks,
the control of the situation. They
can oharge just that which they
choose for smelting and in so doing
oan easily absorb tbat bounty et>
that whether it is paid to the mine
owner or the smelter makes little
difference, the smelter will have
the lion's share at all events. The
output of the Slocan last year was
somewhere around 15,000 tons. Thc
normal output used to be double
that quantity and it was confidently expected that with the lead
bounty the normal output would
be resumed. But it .has not been
so. Taking the returns for thiB
year it will be seen that the output
is only at the rate of 12,000 tons of
lead ore, less than last year. The
bounty bo far is helping the smelters to a trifling extent but the returns show that it is not helping
the lead mines one bean.

TWO GREAT FIGHTING RACES

Henrv Newman writes the following description of tbe Indian
Army on the Tibet expedition:
But it is a very small Indian
Army. Two pioneer regi-nents of
Sikhs, a Gurkha regiment, sappers
and miners, a seotion of a British
mountain battery, a machine gun
seotion from the British infantry
regiment, a few mounted infantry,
and there you are. And yet the
types are representative and varied
enough to afford an opportunity of
comparison, wbioh need not necessarily be invidious. One cannot
help contrasting the profane live
linens of Tommy Atkins and thf
oheerfulness of the Gurkhas witb
the solemn gravity of tbe Sikhs,
who see nothing in all this discomfort and hardship but the serious business of theSirkar (govern
ment)—that mysterious entity
whose ways are beyond understanding.
The Eighth Gurkhas are, of
course, the old Forty-fourth, an
Assam regiment. They have not
had the same opportunities as the
majority of Gurkha regiments in
reoent years, but their record on
the northeast frontier expedition
is sufficient to show tbe officers
and men are of the same type an
won undying fame before Delphi
in Afghanistan and on the l),n > <
heights. Even when muffled up
in poshtins, Gllgit boots and Bala- j
olava oaps there is no mistaking
the squat, snubnosed mountaineers,
whose oourage and oheerful endur
anoe in the faoe ot hardships have
made 1 Gurkhas suoh mugnifioent
soldiers.
It is the greatest of mistakes to
■appose that the Assam regiments
enlist men of physique or cotfrage
interior to that to be found in the
battalions upoountrv. The men
one sses at Gnatong, Ohumbi and
Phari Fort are identical with thoae
to be seen at Dharmsala, Lansdowne, or DehraDun. After long
marches escorting oonveys or
bringing,up rear guards, numbed
as they are with the oold and tired
as they must be with the severe
olimb, they are as ready to out
wood, draw water and pitoh oamp
as If they had just oome out 0! the
comfort of oantonmente. During a
halt they do nol sit and shiver
around. At Gnatong they play
football, elsewhere they are never
tired of-skylarking with eaoh other,
throwing things about and laughs
ing like sohool boys. A fierce gust
of oold wind whioh upset tents and
throws the whole oamp into confusion is to them only a great joke.
The offioers of the Gurkha brigade,
it is said, put on ."side." They
have reason to.
Aa I have already indicated, the
Bikhs ol the two pioneer regiments
—the Twenty-third and the
Twenty-second— ui'fer a great contrast to the Gurkhas. Great,
solemn, bearded men, tbey Buffer
and endure patiently. These
pioneer battalioiiH have little rest in
cantonments. They are always at
work on the frontier, whether it be
Ohitral, Wuziristan or Tibet.
Their life of .toil has made them
hard. Their mtiBcles are of iron.
Ooe sees them marching off at
diwn with their piokaxtiS und
shovels and reiurning at dupk and
one kDOwe that another length of
bad road has been made good. The
pioneers have left their markB on
Tibet.
With the pioneers must be associated tbe sappers and miners, of,
as they are beginning to Btyle
themselves, the suffering minera.
They too have borne the burden and
oold of the day. The reputation of
of the Madras sappers and miners
needs no writing up, but the Bengal sappers have shown themselves
no whit behind their Madras brethren in discipline, enduranoe or intelligence.
The mounted infantry, or mountain infantry, as everybody here
calls them, have been formed out
of the infantry battalions of tbe
escort. Tbeir mounts are shaggy
ponies and it is wonderfol bow well
the Gurkhas and Muzbi Sikhs
manage these beasts. The riding
may not be of the best oircus type,
but tbe men do not fall off, and under their very capable commandant they have learned to scout,
dismount, take oover, and so forth
io a fashion that has probably already very much astonished tbe
simple folk of these parts witb
their antiquated notions of war-
fire.

MINOR  MENTION
The City Council will assemb le

a successful meeting last evening.
A big dance is being given in the
Miners.' union hall thiB evening.
There wae a pleasant dance in
the Masonic Temple lasl evening.

The regular monthly meeting of
the Bod and Gun olub will be.held
tomorrow night.
The cantata to be produced un
the auspiceB of the Anglican choir
is Belshazzar, not Esther, as origi
nally arranged.
The Miner has John Maokenzie
in oharge of the Le Roi. Last Sunday it strenuously regarded the re
port as absurd.
The Miner is astonished because
the Elmore mill U paying; says
that it is "actually paying profits."
It would not be astonished if the
Trail Reduotion Works paid.
Tho first rehearsal of the choruB
which ia to present Behihazzar, was
held last night at St. George's
ohurch, and a large number of the
best Bingers of the city was present
The choruses in this cantata are
much above the average musio
heard iu such production*, and the
solo work is also of an exceptionally high order.
Rehearsals will be held every
evening and a cotv ial invitation is
extended to all singers of the city
to come and assist in the rendition
of this beautiful cantata.
The costumes are furnished by
Mr. Hoyt, who is directing the production, and are very appropriate
to the nature of the piece.
The proceed! of the cantata are
for the benefit of St. George's church
and this fact alone will assure a
large attendance.
| Mr. L, S. Lakin, who has been
with Mr. Hoyt for some time past,
will manage the staging, being a
past master in this line of work.
His assistance will add materially
to the production.
A full list of the Bingers and also
cast of characters will appear
soon.
