press at Ottawa, I feel that my attitude
should uot be misunderstood. Yours

[Tho representative of this-paper certainly did not "intentionally misreport"
Mr. Macdonald, so to one of two causes
must be attributed the alleged error in
the report: Either the reporter wasspell-
bouud b", the eloquence of the speaker—
it very utiuusal occurrence in the life of
a newspaper man, or the speaker Was
carried away by his own enthusiaem—
a not unusual happening in the "declamatory" period of a .young politician's
life. The everlasting difficulty between
reporter and spell-binder could be satisfactorily arranged were the young legal
gentlemen who overrun the country
during a political campaign to have
their speeches typewritten and published iu the local paper at 10 cents a
line, cash. Then, owing to tbe financial
benelits acctuiug to his paper, the reporter could afford to overlook the enthusiastic lapses from sanity.   We ap-

Crows Nest district. The coal is of a
high grade for coking.
This year silver-lead mining in
Southeast Kootenay has shown very
much greater activity. Operations
at the St. Eugene indicate -.hat the
mine has produced more lead than
any other mine in the Province.
The North Star has also shown an
appreciable increase this year over
that of 1903.
The year of 1901 has' been one of
steady progress and development in
the placer mines of the district, and
throughout the quartz camps a better
feeling prevails. Attention is again
directed to the quartz mines by the
near approach of active construction
of the Kootenay Central Railway.
Hydraulic sluicing on Wild Horse
Creek is about closed. Water has
heen turned out of hig ditches.
Cleaning up is now progressing, and
from all reports thero seems to be
reasonable assurance that the 1901
production will he iound to considerably exceed that of last year.

COAL AT LUXE
Although little haB been said about
the doings of the West Canadian Col-
lories Co., of this place, who own and
are operating the mines at Belle vuo-ami
Lille, this company is one of the strongest aud largest operating in the Dominion. Work on their properties has
been carried on continuously and .systematically for some time past with the

best laid out and built up towns in the
Pass, is situated the coke ovens oi this
company. These ovens, which are
fifty in number, aro of iho Soivey type
and the first to he built of that pattern
in Canada. These ovens are charged
and drawn by machinery and although
but 31 of them are in operation, they aro
turning out 120 tons of lirst class coke
every twenty-four hours. All of the
product of theso ovens is being shipped
to smelters of 11. (.'. where a ready ealo.
is found for it as  well   as  considerable,
abled the company to pay a sub
stantial dividend. Tlie showing of
the North Star is most favorable, and
a three per cent dividend has heen
declared. Work on the Sullivan
smelter is progressing, a largo number of men beiuer employed. As

company will put & large force at

In the Salt nines.!
There are. four silt mines in Roti
mania, two quite close to one another
it Slamc and Doftana One of the
mines at Slamc dates back to the time
ofthe Romans, whose methods nere
not bo scientific as those oftheirmodern
successors They made botfle-sliaped
p-;cavalions quite close to one another
with the result that the wedge of cirth
beta-wen bottles constantly threatened
to subside Indeed, the other day
enormous mass came down with
crash, and the old mine had to
abandoned Modern methods iv<
such danger Instead of burrowing
down again into a new mine, jou cu
horizontal galleries into the rock, iiuj-i
pillars pfialt are left standing to support the earth, and fresh ct
hollowed out Thus, w ithout an-.
extra amount of labor, it is possible tc
extend the mine almost indefinitely,
and the pillars serve to confirm the
ecclesiastical enact of the greit subtGr
ranenu basilica
I saw the old Romato mine from one
□f Ihe upper galleries which his
reached by strange, almost endless
tunnels, illuminated with gay Chi
lanterns A little verdure alone
needed lo complete Ihe illusion nf the
gardens of Aladdin The impressions
afforded hy the view from ihisgillerj
were so unique and so marvell ius that
I hesitate to attempt to describe them
Some minutes were necessary to grow
accustomed to the twilight A feu
braziers contain ing shavings soaked tn
petroleum were flanm* up in □ feverish
manner, and as I looked over into the
darkness of the abjss I wis reminded
of Dorcs version of Dante looking over
into tlfe uttermost depths of hell
What struck me most was the tn
secuuly of my position There His
of course, no danger, n hit ever, and
the ledge on which I stood wis furl)
brand But it possessed no pinpcl
and tn order to look down it v __
necessary to come vcrv near to the
brink What added most to the sense
of insecurity was -i kind of pier or com
mencement or a bridge wlm.li projected
over thenbvss I do nol know whether
it dated back to the dttjs of the Romans, but it inj rnle it v. is almost
prctnstoi it, in aspect I did not iilciI
ihe advice of my coin pinions to discourage any attempt it w liking iho
plank along this roid lo destruction
but t have seen few places cnpiblc of
affording more temptation lo those with
auicidul inclinations
Suddenly a signil was gut-n ind
enormous bonfires were cast down from
the roof of the mine Sever il long
seconds elapsed before (hej fizzled out
in the pond of silt water hundreds of
feet below The effect was extraordinary Tirst the gnj walls were illu
minated ns the huge molten miss
hlazed past them, then itiey were overcast with Reeling, ghostly shidows,
and at last plunged once more into
darkness, which was onlj emphasized
by the flickering lights ibove
Perhaps the prettiest object in this
old ni-ne was a common tub which hid
been placed some J cars ago upon the
ledge to receive the droppings of silt
water 1 tasted this water and found
it so salt lhat it almost bit ind sohdi
Bed my tongue As the drops fell the
greater port of them immediately crjs
talhzcd w'lh incredible npidilj The
original tub was no longer to be sctn
It had been covered up entirely with
glistening encrustations, which gave
It tlio appearance of a huge snow fountain adorned with motat exquisite!'* ni*-
tigtic designs, It nns now about sis
feet high nntl M\eml feet In thickness,

The amalgamated, Copper Company is said to have its experts in all
parts of the mining world looking up
copper properties that are obtainable
at bedrock prices. A Boston authority is quoted on the subject as hollows.
"From information which 1 have
received I believe that tho Amalgamated Copper Company has had
experts all over the world looking up
desirable, copper properties which are
now in the prospect stage, but might
be developed into large producers.
"I take no stock in the reports that
the Amalgamated is contemplating
thejpurchase of any large producing
mines whose shares are listed upon
the exchanges, tor it would have to
pay too large a price lor them.
"I think the Amalgamated people
would have purchased the Green
Consolidated at around $10 per share
if they could have secured it, niiti
that they tried it and failed. They
would not purchase it on the basis ol
$22,000,030, for which the property
is now selling in the stock market.
The same holds true of Utah, United1
States Mining and other companies
operating in the Bingham district.

Another calamity has overtaken the
miners of the Crow's Nest valley, fourteen men having met their death by a
sudden outburst of gas in No. 1 mine
at Carbonado, li. 0., tlie, property ef the
Crow's Neat Coal company. Tho outburst took placo on November IS. 1901.
By this disaster, seven widows, four-
teen'ehildren and threo dependents
bave, been suddenly deprived of their
broad winners and left to tho mercy of
tlio world. Most of these families havo
lately arrived in this country and are
fn poor circumstances and iu need of
immediate help.
We therefore appeal to the. charity of
all people to come to the immediate assistance of these pooi widows and
fatherless children.
A relief committee will be appointed
to administer any funds that may be
donated.
Donations may be sont to J. N. How-
brook, box 811, Fernie, or lo Dr. W. 11,

years to get some large producers at
prospect price, but Heinze is probably
responsible for this, as he kept the
management too much engaged in
"mending their fences" in Montana
to look elsewhere.
■'Arizona is tho most promising
copper held at present, but the
Plielps-Dodge interests are active
there in getting the most promising
properties since they realized their
mistake in not securing the Calumet
at Arizona when it was offered thorn
for $oOO,000.
In Ktist IKootcnay not far from
Marysville arc some of tho richest
copper prospects in tho world and the
Amalgamated should look them up.
There's millions in it.
The revival of an oid mining camp at
Ueveille, Nye county, Nevada, is an instance of the energy with which the
mining industry is being urged in that
i^t'ite, says the. Mining and Scientific
Press. Reville was an old and practically abandoned camp thirty years
ago. Dating the early days "in the latter sixties it was a shipper of high-grade

erous enough for the times and gradually mining in that district came to a
standstill. Mow, however, with a railroad at Tonopah, only fifty milen away
to tho westward, new conditions have
developed for Uoville district, just as
they have for many other districts, both
old and now, in Nevada and Utah.
The veins of the district are large and
well mineralized, and the probability is
that some of tho now and long continued
producers, with some of the old ones,
will share fn 11 measure this revival of
prosperity. Tho camp is only another
illustration of how time ami changing
conditions make tho unsuccessful und
poverty-stricken camp of today, the
rich and prosperous one tomorrow.
This Woman Wants Skin.
A woman whose skin is a patchwork'
of pieces of epidermis taking from persons representing every nation on earth
is Miss limnia Gallahcr, of Hvanston,
Ind. Twenty-three skin grafting op-s
orations bave beeij undergone by Miss
Gallaher since she was burned from the
neck to waist in a gasoline tank eight
•years ago. Her left arm is still without skin and has grown to her body.
"Skin is higher price than oilcloth,"
commented Miss Gallaher sagely recently, when she was asked to tell about
her efforts to buy skin. '-The average
cost of human skin is about $1,000 a
square foot. When 1 once advertised
one hundred men volunteered to sell
theirs. Many of them faltered when
Ihcy came to tbe lest. Negro skin, the
doctors say, will turn white when grafted on a white person.. When I was in
St. Elizabeth's hospital for two years
thirty-three nurses volunteered to give
me skin, but 1 refused to lei them do
.so. All the nations of the earth .sire
represented in,the skin that covers my
back. You can call me Chinese or Eskimo if you like, and the chances are
thai you will nol be far from right in
sonic measure. 1 was originally au
American, but my skin is cosmopolitan
—decidedly so.".
Miss Gallaher is now trying to earn
enough selling sewing machines to buy
skin to cover her arm. Here's hoping
she'll succeed.

Mow are we to explain apparitions of
the dead?   The evidence for these was
much"! ess coplou.H^^ujd^-, ne-a'e^e'is'il'-'.^
much less satisfactory. No coincident
crisis in the nflairs of the dead, could,
of course, be delected, as in the case of
the living'. Again , even if we grant
that telepathy between the living is; a
fact in nature, a ghost of the dead can
hardly hope to prove his identity.
To take a case: A young American
commercial traveler, alone in his room
at a hotel, suddenly saw bis dead sister
