I'orhupi the most noticeable feature
of tho wbulc proceedings v'as the
changing expressions on Mr. Wallace's
lace. When the preparations were
being made Mr. Wallace showed plainly the weight ol the responiibility

the boat wai afloat. Alter ilic vessel
had successfully floated he was a pic-
lure of gratification.
The launching of tbe North Vuneouver Ferry No. 8 was tbe first self-propelled boat of any sire to be built and
launched from the Wallace Shipyards
>hoi'e and during the whole program
there was not a single hitch. The
'slide down (lie ways was gradual,
•jlcnt, except fur Ihe ovatiom, and
hardly perceptible. The bow dipped
to about the main deck which went
mu -li lor about a fool back of the
apron. It then came up lo a level
and with one or two boom sways us
if to accustom itself to its watery-
home, glided "li on un even keel us
gracefully us u bird. The success ol
the lambing is attributable to a
large extent, to the corelul superintendence of Foremen Davie.
I In momentum of the slide off the
wayi took the boat out about 2110

lug I I'llm with Cup!. T. Kickli.iin

The ..-..- -f.il launching ol tbe now.
ferry steamer "North Vancouver Ferry
Number II," yesterday morning from
thu ways at Wallace Shipyards Limit-
mi murks a notable event in tbe development ol the North Shore. It is
in striking accord with the fitness of
things that this lulcst addition to the
ferry Heel should be tho In -l steamer
to be liiun lied Irom the yardi ol one
of our lurgesl and most important local industries. The led thai North
Vancouver Ferry Number 3 has been
built entirely upon the North Shore
and is therefore the exclusive product
of local industry is a feature ol tho
new   sleuiner   which   adds greatly to
I ho i- 11. on, ,■ of the launching Irom
a North Vuneouver point of viow.
The fuel that the now ferry iteam
er is now in Ihe water provide! ihe
certainty that the Ferry Company will
bo in excellent poiition to handle the
lurgest pussenger traffic that will develop during the coming ipring and
summer. The completion of the new
ferry wharf on this side ol the Inlet
likewise adds very greatly to tbc In
■ ilne for handling tho heavy travel,
the seusnn for which is approaching,
with uipodition uml witb eomlort to
the public. The ferry landing on' the
Vancouver lido ol the inlet Inn- been
under eoniiderution by the Hoard ol
Directors and extensive improvements
are iu contemplation. Tbo details ol
these improvements aro contingent to
a greater or lesser ext.-nl, however,
upon the decision! wjiiih may be arrived at by the CI'.H. relative to the
proposed subwuy and the plans of the.
ferry boord are held in abeyance
awaiting information in this particular, Tbo travelling public will fin I
excellent provision lor their accommodation this sumim 1 in connection with
the ferry service to North Vancouver,
ward and that instead of endeavoring
to'take advantsjja ol his customer end
to give the Impression of selling f'a|
opst" eto„ when In reality the usual
profits are being made, as is frequently done at "bsrgsin" storos, tbe local merchant is in reality protesting
his customers Irom imposition and is
selling them an honeot article at an
unusually low pries.
The business ol the local merchant
is built upon tbs foundation of mutual confidence between him and his
customers, the interests ol ths merchant and ol ths nurohsser are recognised as identical and ths merchant
is guided by tbs fact that in serving
his customers' interests to the very
best ol his Ability, he is thereby serving his own Interests in the most of

Huston Discusses
Lead Reciprocity
George Huston, formerly well known
in Ibe Kootcnay, but now of Mullan,
-Idaho, contributes an article to tbe
current number ol Mining Science, in
which he proposes reciprocity baUnon,
Canada end tbo United States lor Ihe
entjre lead schedule. Tho article was
writton^iolors the rosult ol Ibe conference between tho commissioners o! tho
two governments ooncern-id was
known. Specifically, tbo article deals
with the history ol tbe load mining industry p| British t'uluinliiu, and tbo
situation in the lead producing slutcs
si present. Mr. Huston's nitUo is as
In discussing tbo reciprocity question as it affects lead mining, it is necessary to roviow briefly the causes
leading to tho establishment ol loud
smelting, refining and manufacture on
Canadian soil.
Uritieh Columbia produces about all
thu lead mined in Cunuda. Lead mining owes its origin to thu hardy prospector and operator, of whom thrre
wero u\ n- 3000 scattered ovur tho oa.it
uud weal Kootcuoy districts in IBM,
or soon alter tbo discovery. Twenty
iiiiiii- were then working in silver
lead. Of the 17 companies in Ihe lirld
16 were American, one English1 uud
one Canadian. The ore wus huuled ol
packed at Kaslo, entering the United
States via Kootenoy lake and river lo
Bonner's Ferry, end was distributed
to the United Slutes smelters' by the
newly constructed Groat Western Mil-
way und connections.
The lead curbonute ore nl l.eudvillo,
the supply source ol the Colorado
smelters gave out in 1803 und up to
lo 18'JJ. Strikes in the Coeur d'Alsesi
low silver prices in Honlauu' und the
effect of the I J. cent duly reinforced by
the Windom decisions shutting out the
Mexican ore rendered Ihe rich galena
ul the Slocun u godsend und the
plants In in ■ independent of euch otb.'i
made strenuous competition, resulting
in big shipments to smelters located
in Colorado uud Montunu.
As the tonnage promised In become
important railwuys were constructed.
A narrow gunge ruilwuy and steamer
line on Eootonay lake serves lo connect the district with metallurgical facilities locuted on the United Stules
railways, 'ihe home line, the Canadian I'.i. id, ruilwuy, wus almost shut
out in llie competitive /one, iu addition, having to watch helplessly the
tonnage Irom exclusive territory led
to its foreign rivals becauso of lack of
metallurgical facilities ulong its own
lines. The completion ol the (row's.

its avowed policy of I'tAiigliug the
British Columbia o.'c W I'nloinoo
drove the railway into securing the
erection of mctullurgicul facilities ou
Canadian soil.
Thus the industry owes its existence
to the fight of u powerful trunsporlu-
lion system uguinst thu encroachment
ol I  ii competition und in point ol
practice, equipment, shrewd management and boncit capitalisation, the
t'unndiao smellers arc cijuul to anything in the United Stalci.
in the purchase of cuitom ores tbc
Canadian smeller settles on the London price baiii.< The United Slates
concerns lettle on Ihe New York,
which ii I} cents pur pound higher
being made up by adding the duty
on lead in ore to the J..,iulmi price
end subtracting tbe carriage London
to Now York ol oppwximulcly i of a
cent per pound, It scemi that the
United States plants have tho advantage but tbo Dominion bounty, giving
| nla cent per pound on lead mined
and smelted in Canada, more than offset! half the advantage. The remainder ii wiped out by the provision
ol section 6 of the United Stales tariff act which imposes a penalty equal
to the bounty in iddition to the regular duty on iWporls. Thai, between the provisions of the load
bounty act end of section 6, the Canadian smeltefs are completely protect
ed from foreign competition for r»w
material. It might be mentioned tbet
mine labor in Cwerta i» compensated
uliout ss* well us here, while smell or
labor is paid' higher than In :,".v "'
the pluals handling Idaho ore.
The above fundamental oconomiu
facts must not bo lost, sight ol in considering how reciprocity with I'miudu
WQUIorbcnolit tho Idaho producers.
Tjio entire lead production of tbo
Coeur d'Alono region might bo classified us customs oro; that is, it is mined for sale to the highest biddiir under time coutrsct. It is shipped to
those smelting centres which hnvo
need for the Iced contained i fi-.■ -m to
act as a furnuco collector for values
of other dry ores. A single interest
in loud imelting dominates tbo enrapo-
tilioii for tho ore.
Tho interests of tho district would
be best served when tbo groa'ost mini-
bor of smelting centres could rompcto
for tbo product and the economic fuels
governing the policy ol competitor!
wore such as to provent combination.
Apparently this is impossible io thu
United States, owing to - close control
i-.i,'i,-ii:eil iivi'i- the commodity. Local
smelting is out ol tho question as the
supplementary ores arc scarce snd no
capital on a score commensurate
would undertake local reduction in the
face of the well nigh imprcgnablo position of the interest controlling the
inuchincry ol treatment ond distribution of lead in thu United States. It
would appear thut effective competition can only iconic from established
concerns on the outside having efficient pructicu und equipment necessary, us the United States competition
is bused on u basis of common understanding. Tlie smelters treating
the bulk ol llie ore uru located nt
grunt distances from ■ tho i"gion

product lo a In. li vuluo pcrvnliij/c.

Wo find, in summarizing points, that
the smelting, refining and manufacturing cuiii'i'ins |n British Columbia uru
bucked by the -policy ol a poworfu
transportation company, whose influ
ence is prool against tho tannage methods of tbo single interest controlling
load iu the United States, und whoso
economic position is such as to remove ihe [ear ol combination therewith. The concerns are highly efficient
in practice and equipment end honestly capitalized,
Comparatively speaking the dominant interest In lead in the United
States has a monopoly in tbo Coeur
il'Alenei, and can enforce what condition il pleases. It is clear that tbe region would be greatly benefitted
could it but receive tho competition ol
the Canadian imoltcrs under a well
considered schomo ol reciprocity between tho two countries. It is the
typo of competition 'needed. It ii
further obvious that no schemo of re
ripiority in raw materials will apply,
as loud in oro is now admitted free
into tbo Dominion. Even wore the
proyisions ol section 6 ol our tin ill
act repealed, tbo Canadian emclton
witb the help ol tbo bounty act could
effectively compete.
A sehomc ol reciprocity throughout
tho lead schedules ii the only plan
worthy ol consideration. Canada now
consumes her total load production
