Eleventh  Yeai
SMELTER
SITUATION
There Has Been no Recent
Cut In Freight and
Treatment.
The Rates Are the Same as
Those Announced Early
In January
A dispatch from Sandon states that
there has beon an important change
in the smeltor situation there recently.
Then the dispatch further says that
p. n. Johnson, of the Everett smelter
has made contracts with the Amorioan
Boy and Last Chance properties on the
basis of $11 for freight and treatment
on ore going 20 per cent. lead, or less.
For ore running over 20 per cent. 2u
cents a unit will be charged for each
per cent up to 40, malting the rate
fur 'hat class of ore 815 per ton. All
cue going ovei 40 per cent, get tho $15
rate. A zinc penalty of SO cents a
unit will be charged on eveiything
over 8 per cent. The settlement is on
London market qnotations Icsb sh'p-
ment deductions. Ten per cent, of the
price will be held out for 90 days to
protect the smelters from fluctuation.
These are exactly the same rates
that were published early in January
in a statement sent out by W. II.
Aldridge, manager of tbe Trail smelter, which rates are common to all
the sn elters including those of Trail
and Nelson. Since then here has been
no change   In the rates, cither way.
1). 0. Johnson, local agent for the
Everett smelter, was seen yesterday,
and asked if there had been any lowering of the ratos other than
which were annouced early in January und he lepliud that no alteration
mis been made in them and that thc
ore contracts which he had made with
the Last Chance and American Hoy
wero in conformity with the rates
agreed to and which had appeared in
The Miner and other papers some
time since. So far as cutting the rates
was concerned there was nothing in
the statement. He visited Sandon recently but had said nothing while
there thnt would lead to the inference
tbat there had been a recent change in
the freight and treatment charges bo-
yond those announced some timo since
and under which all of the smeltere
are operating.
This is all there is in the matter
nnd whoever sent the dispatch was
eivclently laboring under a misapprehension of the conditions that attain
in regard to transportation and reduction charges.

''FATHER PAT" IS DEAD.
Nnzarene and lie visited the sick, sustained tbo alllicted, helped tho po.ir.
without regard to their creed or race.
It is related of him that he litis taken
ol? his cai and given it one whom he
thought needed protection from the
weather more than he did, and his
deeds of charity and of self sacrifice wero of daily occurrence.
Rev. Irwin was a native of Ireland
and a graduate of Keble college, Oxford. He was ordained as a clergyman
of the Church of England in 1883 and
was curate ot Rugby until 188.r>. Iu
the lattur year ho oame to llritish
Columbia and was appointed chaplain
to tho Rishop of New Westinlster, and
missionary of tlio large district which
comprised the diocese. Ho married
Miss limes but was soon after left a
widower. This was a loss from which
lie never fully recovered as he had a
great affection for his wife. In 1896
he was made rector of the Anglican
church at Rossland and was a prominent figure in good work in tbat city
until about two years ago when he
resigned iu order to go into missionary work in the Similkameen couutiy.
lie left tlie Similkameen about two
months Binee for the purpose of visiting the Old Country where he purposed remaining aud now the news
comes of his death in a Montreal hospital, among strangers, perhaps, who
did not know him as the people ol
Kootenav and Yale know him. He
was 42 yoars of age.
"Father Pat" was fond of athletlios
and loved the rude onset of football.
At Oxford he wns known as "Hlack
Eyed Susan" from the frequency with
which his eyes wero blackened i.< the
foothall games that he played while
there. lie liked to walk, and in the
earlier days cf his work in ihe interior
a journey of 60 or even 100 miles on
foot was thought by him to be a small
undertaking.

one dead bodies were today taken
Irom the Improvised morgue in Shaft

Tesla's High Frequency Electric Currents
Turned to Account in the Curing of Consumption.
Eighty Thousand Volts Passed Through
Patients, Benefitting, if Not Wholly
Curing Them of Phthisis.
New York, Jan. 25.���Experiments
are being made ou a most elaborate
scale in London with a modification
of Tesla's high-fiequency electrical
currents in the treatment of consumption. It is stated that some remarkable results have been achieved.
Says the Loudon correspundent of
the Herald: 'These experiments for
the most part have been quietly conducted by Dr. T. J. Beckham, an eminent West end surgeon, in tho course
of his private practice, but with tho
knowledge and appioval of leading
eonsnraption specialists. Dr. Beck-
bam has had fitted up a most elaborate apparatus for the production of
electricity in the particular way in
whieh it is used, the result ot whieh
is that a current of 80,000 volts is produced, of such high frequency and administered ir such small quanitties
tbat the consumptive patient may receive it without tho   slightest   injury.
The awe inspiring force of this voltage may bo best appreciated when it
is remembered that only 5500 volts are
employed for driving trains on a railway. Yet the patient is not conscious
of the enormous electrical pressure.
Dr. Heckhams' experience Is tbat in
very bad cases of aonsupmtlon, the
cough has been greatly reduced,night
sweats have disappeared, the appetite
inn improved and thers has been a
great gain in weight and general
health so that even if the consump-
tion bacilli have not been destroyed,
it is rertaln that tbeir virulence has
beon much decreased ; that they have
been brought under control, and that
the patient has felt cured. A doubt
entertained by phthisis specialists who
do not question this temporary improvement is whether it is anything
but mere exhilaration. llr.Beckham,
however, has great faith in the future
of the system.

Thc action of thu Imperial authorities is regarded as evidence of the
indifference to tho claims of the

MONOPOLY VS. PATRIOTISM.
The Inland Sentinel prints an editorial under the above caption in iiB
last isBue. Tho factB in this article
taken in connection with the presence
here from Western Canada of a prominent and [unions newspaper writer,
whi is knowu to be iu the pay ot tbe
Canadian Pacific railway, shows how
an endeavor ia being made to work
ou public feeling and patriotism to
secure a certain selfish end. Tbe
Sentinel says:
The Province of Saturday last, 18th
inst., contains what purports to be a
special telegraphic despatch from Fort
Steele dated 17tb January, under the
caption "Coal Monopoly in the Crew's
Neat." It is a most remarkable
coincidence that about a week ago one
of our oitizer.s handed to the Sentinel,
a typewritten article, the exact counterpart of the Provinces "special."
which had been sent too him with the
request that he secure its insertion in
a Liberal newspaper. The copy in our
hands is dated from Fort Steele,
January 9tb, and reads almost word
fur word with the Province special, to
which, however, a few more paragraphs have been added. As a matter
of faot, tbe articles has been manifolded, Interlarded with appropriate
variationa, and sent through tbe
medium of trusty agents, tu the press,
particular anxiety being shown to
secure publication ln Liberal newspapers. But this Is not all. A few
days ago, on Saturday last, to be precise, another gentleman sent ua a
shorter article, dealing with the same
subject, and bearing in every sentence tbe imprint of tbe same authorship as the more lengthy one. In
thiB second manuscript reterenoe is
made to an article which appeared in
the Nelson Tribune about two weeks
ago touching upon thisidentical question, the Crow's Nest Coal Company
and Mr. Jim Hill's connection therewith. Strange to say, the Tribune's
article Is suspiciously like the Province's "special" and the two typewritten Mss. now in our pjsscssion,
and iB unndoubtedly tbe product uf
tbe same facile pen. Another noteworthy feature is the fact that thc
Province commented on the Nelson
Tribune's article, reproducing some
parts of it, and the entire Province
article wus reprinted in the Rossland
Miner of tbe 14th inst.
Next, the Province of the 18th inst.,
published its variation of the same
article dated the l?th, from Fort
Steele, and then,lo cap the climax,the
Nelson Tribune, also of the 18th, reprints tho Province article as a tele-
gr'.a from Victoria, dated the 17th,
th same day as it was "wired" (!)
from Fort Steele ti the Van-ovner C.
;a. .     This is indeed wonder-
rt of .elepa'hic see-saw I
i t the hii'Ii.i ship uf these
lake one sente'ice from the
d version 1 ''We are nertain
si t n ill .mi jiIiow hi'it-
i.vei reached in this bold
' his 's repeated In the
- ' smcial" in slighly alter-
"Nut one unpo-es.howe er,
Sifton "ill allow himself to
ved into consummating the
Hill monopoly In thai fashion," No
one cvill deny thnt ihe*c two sentences
were wrirten by . tie and tht sains
person. Tlie Province special says:
"^I'ho situation is aggravated by tbe
fact that Mr. .!. J. Hill has come into
possession of a lamo interest in the
Or.iw's Nest Coal company." ln the
typewritten article supplied to us
ur.dei date of Jan. Hth exactly the
Baine words are used. In fact whole
paragraphs are identical, and the
authorship ot these two and Ibe
Tribune's article rests with tbe same
Inspired writer. Lastly, for tbe
second and shorter article, in which
occurs these words: "With this In
his hands, Mr. Hill could 'holdup'
the Canadian smelters, which have no
othei source of supply, by cheapening
thu price to the American smelters In
which he and bit railroad are interested, literally compel the smel'ing
industry on   tbis side of the line to
migrate to the other." Compare that
with the following extract fiom the
Province "special". "He will at
once begin to feed American smeltein
with coal and cuke.and will,of oourse,
be in a position to 'bold up' the
Canadian smelters, and in truth arlve
tbe smelting Industry of British
Columbia into the United States."
Were further proof necessary to
show the one authorship ot all these
articles, they can be given by the
articles themselves, but these will
suffice to convince any sane man that
they all emanate from tbe same
source. Now, It may rcarsonaoly be
asked, whst does this all mean? The
answer is simple enough, li is a
deliberate attempt on the part of certain interested parties to stir up
publio feeling aaginst the Hill interests. It is a revival uf last year's cry
against Mr. Hill and tbe Crow's Nest
Coal oompany. lt la a renewal of tbe
appeal to the so-called "patriotic
spirit" which is so often found a convenient cloak to hide the trne inwardness of opeiations which are not
wholly for the publlj good. There is
only one concern whose interests ln
tbe transportstion of coal and ora,
aud the production of coal and coke
in its relation to smelters conflict
with those of J. J. Hill and the
Crow's Nest Coal company, anil that
is the Canadian Pacific Railway company. There is not a shadow of a
doubt that the Province speuial
and the utber articles under consideration are inspired by the C, P. R.
management.
By this carefully planed scheme of,
under tbe guise of an appeal to Canadian patriotism, enlisting the assistance of that portion of tbe press more
or less ln sympathy with the
Dominion government, it is hoped to
prevent any scion "n the part of the
government which would result in
that portion of the Crow's Nest PasB
ooal lands held in reserve by the government falling into other hands than
their own.
We hold no brief from the Crow's
NeBt Coal company, nor from Mr.
dill, nor bave we any animus
towaids the C.P.R., bnt we do object
aud that most strenuously,to this ever'
lasting appeal to patriotism, employed
by the clever corporation pleaders
professing the loftiest and most disin-
tetested motives, as a cloak to hide
the real motive, tbe perpetuation and
strengthening of their own monopoly
In the face of this shameless piosti
tution of one of the noblest sentiments, it is not very pleasant to learn
that even while busied with tbe prorogation of thu gospel of amor patriae,
the C.P.R. intimated to Senator Penrose, chairman of tbe Committee on
Immigration at Washington, their
desire to make representations before
that committee concerning the Chinese
Exclusion bill. If the P. 0. R. oppose
Chinese exclusion in tbe United States
what will tbeir attitude be on the
same question in Canada? Tbey ask
British Columbians to patriotically
knife Jim Hill whilattheir own patri
otism is measured by their ability to
earn dividends by the transportation of
Chinese, with whom tbey are willing
to fill up the country at the expense
ot tbe men to whose patriotiu spirit
they now appeal.

PERTINENT RESOLTIONS. \
At the meeting of the Associated
Boards of Trade, which will be held
in Kaslo on February 26th, some important resolutions will come up for
consideration. One is a request that
in tbe event of a vaaaney occurring
in tbe senate representation of British
Columbia that it should be filled by
calling to tbe senate a resident of the
mining distriot, familiar with its
requirements. Tbe mining districts
of the province should be better represented than they are and as there Is a
strong public sentiment,in favor of it,
in the event of a vacancy, a Kootenay
man should   be called to tbe Senate
A second resolution requests that in
the event of negotiations for reciprocity with the United States being
renewed a representative of the prov
ince be appointed on the commission
In the contingencv of the new reciprocity arrangements being entered
into it would be a matter of importance for tbe province lobe represented
so that equitable tariff arrangements
as to lead ore and lead products,
might be arrived at.
Another resolution requests that no
royalty be required to be paid on timber cut on mineral claims when used
for mining purposes. Miners should
not he compelled to psy a royalty
under such circumstances and the
government should heed thia petition
an abrogate the royalty under such
circumstances. It is important tbat
the mines be developed and tbe less
hardships tbat can be imposed on
mining in its earlier stages the better
tbe ultimate result for the coiumon-
wealtb.
JJ There is a strong resolution in favor
of increasing the tariff on lead and
its products to a parity with tbe
duties levied on similar classes of
products coming into Oanada. With
this resolution The Miner take* Issue.
When pig lead ia made in Canada
place a tariff on it sufficiently high
to keep out lhe foreign artiole and to
create a monopoly ln tbe home market

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill us well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windowB on 110 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Astliinnleii".
My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with tbis distressing disease.

for the home product. When white
lead begins to be rnide protect and
foster the inaustry in tho same way.
lt would, however, be a palpable
injjstice to the consumers of lead and
the manufactured products of lead to
cm pel them to pay an increased price
until thoy can bo supplied by Canadian manufacturers.
A resolution requesting tbat timber
rangers be appointed to prevent forest
fires is a good one and one whieh
should meet with the immediate attention of the government.
Another resolution asks that the
smelting and refining interests of the
country be encouraged to the end tbat
Canadian orea be snelted in Canada
instead of in the United Statet>, providing such measurs do not lu any
way impose additional burdens on the
mines. No fault can be found with
this resolution as the government
should strive by every means in its
power to sid and enourage the smelting and refining industry and it may
be relied on to do this at the proper
time.
The        Associated Hoards      of
Trade, representing, as it doeN, every
portion of the mlDing region of Southern British Columbia, is a body of
considerable importace. It is a sort
of little parliament, to which questions like the above can be brought
up and  threshed out  and  when pre
sented in tbe legislature they repre
sent the exact desires of tbe people
and are, therefore, ready for adoption.
KOSSL.AND STRKJJi.
It is announced that tbe Le Roi
Mining company and the Rossland
Miners' Union, No. 38, 'Western Federation of Miners, have reached an
agreement and that the strike, ao far
as that company is concerned, has
been raised. The strike is still on at
the War Eagle, Centre Star, Le Roi
No. 8, Rosslsnd-dteat Western
and other mines in Rossland camp.
The Le Hoi is by far the largest mine
in the camp and employs more men
than nearly all tbe rest, and when it
is iu full operation it furnishes work
to neatly 1,000men on the surface and
underground. The strike against the
Le Koi had been in existence six
months and eight days when tbe
agreement was reached. Tbe terms
of the agreement reached with the Le
Roi are withheld, but they mnst of
necessity have been agreeable to boti.
the management of the mine and
the members of the union or they
would not have been acceded to. It
is sincerely hoped that the peace may
iie soon reached between the management of the other mines and the
union and that Itossland, which has
suffered considerably during the past
half year, may have a long period
of peace and prosperity.

Tin statement of thu Royal Ilnnk of
(iu wla whieh is published in another
column today shows a steady growth
fot the year 1901. The principal feat-
uivs are increases in the deposits from
113,015)710.71 on 3lBt Dec. 11)00 to
}l;i,:iii:i,i:;4.(i:i on Hist Dec. 1��01, being

curried forward are |��1,882 this year
ascoiiipaieil with $5(1,812 last year. A
strong indication of the good management of the Hank is the tact that onr-
root loans remain practically the
same as last year, the Increase in
deiiisils having been invested in a
more liijuid asset in the shape uf Rail-
wav bonds and debentures and cull
and short loans on btock and bonds.
This polioy ot the hank should commend itself to the large budy of public

ROSSLAND IlltILL HALL.
Thi^e interested in militia matters
nt Kossiand are doing what they can
towar.1 securing an appropriation for
the construction of a drill hall but
the matter of a Bite stands in the nay.
The practice of the militia department has been to require tbe people of
the town where a drill hall is to be
built to bear thn expnnse of procuring
a site. In Rassland tne matter was
not laken np until all the property
centrally located had reached a nigh
price; the provincial government has
ao land left except that on which the
court house i lands, bo Cannot donate
n plot, and the city ia net now disposed to appropriate the amount that
would be necesBary. The officers of
tlie company arc working hard in the
dncetion of procuring the necessary
funds and as it is expected in Rossland tbat another company of the R.
M. R. will be located there during the
coining year, it is probable that the
arrangements will yet. be made before
the approaching session of the
Dominion house is over.
A GOOD CHANCE
A Change of Food 'Works Wonders
The wrong food and drink cause
a lot of trouble in this world. To
change the food is the flrst duty of
every person that is ill, particularly
from stomach and nervous troubles.
As an illustration: A lady in Hick-
mon Mill, Mo. has. with her-husband,
been brought around to health again
by leaving off coftee and some articles
of food that did not agree with them.
Tirny began using Postum Food Coffee
and Ornpe-Nuts Breakfast Food. She
says, "For a number of years I suffered with stomach and bowel trouble
which kept getting worse until I was
very ill most of the time. About four
years ago 1 left off coffee and began
tailing Postum. My stomach aud
bowels improved right along, but I
was so reduced in flesh and bo nervous
that the least thing would overcome
mo.
'Then I changed my food and began
using Orape-Nuts Breakfast Food in
addition to my Postum Coffee. I lived
on these two principally for about
four months. Day by day 1 gained in
flesh and strength until now tbe ner-
vr.us trouble has entirely disappeared
and I feel that I owe my life and
health to lostuin and Grape-Huts.
Husband is 78 years old and and he
waa troubled, for a long time, with
occasional cramps, and slept badly,
i'loally I prevailed on bim to leave
oil' colfee and take Postum. He stood
out for a long time, hut after he tried
I'ostum for a few days he found that
he could sleep and that his cramps
disappeared. lie waa satisfied and
has never had coffee since.
1 have a brother in Calilornia who
has been using Postum for several
lears; his whole family use It aUo
because they have had such good
results from it."

In a low places is too rough for skut-
iug.
A. Ilrignall, of Vancouver, returned
to Nelson from Kaslo yesterday, leaving in the evening lor liosslanil and
the Boundary country.

When the various lake steamers
arrived in Nelson yesterday their puddle boxes were woighed down with
tons of ice. the spray from the paddles
having frozen as it fell. A stream of
hot water from the boiler was played
on the ice for some time before it waB
loosened.
At Kaslo yesterday the thermometer
reg'.stered 10 der/rees below zero. At
Nelson the temperature remained
about the same as that ol tlie aay be-
ore, but as tnere was very little breeze
the cold was not as noticeable.
Twenty-one degrees below zero was
the temperature icported at the Silver
King mine at 'J o'clock yesterday
morning.
The lake was frozen across at the
Narrows on Friday night and also
opposite the city, but the ice not
biting very thick was broken up by
stealers. The temperature of the lake
t'lten at several points gear the centre
)s now 41 degrees,a very low tempera-
tire for this time of voar The
minimum temperature is usually
reached about the end of February.
A legal gentleman yesterday stated
that if the Rossland gamblers were
attempting any such game as that
suggested in The Miner that a very
easy remedy would be to have a
couple of them indicted, as in such
ease a sentence of one or two years
imprisonment could be imposed,which
wculd not cost the Kossiand corpora
tion uny tli ing beyond the trial, and
Would act as a needed lesson.

Handel's Messiah, which no doubt
m.'iny residents of Nelson have already
heard given by large choruses, will
be somewhat in the nature of a surprise as the volume nnd tone of the
chorus voices aie remarkably strong

The tel egraph lines of tne western
part uf Canada were in bad condition
on Friday night,worse than tbey have
beeu for some time. At 6 o'clock the
two lines between Halcyon and
Arrowhead were cros ed. One wire
was used for a time to prevent ground
ing, which the crossing caused, but in
a short time both wires went down together. The Cro 's Nest wire was
down in the afternoon and no connec
tion beyond Kootenay Landing was
got again until about 10 o'clock on
Saturday morning. The wire to
Spokane was working lor about an
hour, from 10 to 11 o'clock, and then
it went out so that thc only country
that could be reached from Nelson
were Kootenay landing and Rossland
and points between, iieiore 10 o'clock
on Saturday morning all the lines
were working as usual. Throughout
Washington much difficulty was had
with tie telegraph lines, as for most
of the night Spokane was cut off from
the coast
II. A. Blackbnrn, manager and
editor of the Kootnaian, was in the
city yesterday ou a business trip. In
speaking about conditions, in the
Slocan. Mr. Blackburn said: "The
general condition of tbe Slocan is very
good and more properties are now
being operated than at any time for
the past three years. The reduction
in the smelter and transportations rates, made on January 1st, has
been of distinct advantage und has
encouraged mine owners all over the
Slocan. I). 11. Stewart left Kaslo for
Edinburgh a short time since and he
assured the people that he would
build a smelter at Kaslo within the
next 12 months. He represents a
Scotch syndicate and carried away
with him a very good impression of
tho ccuntry. The outlook in the
Slocan Is very good. Money is free in
Kaslo and times are veiy good and I
regard it as one of the very best towns
in the  Kootenays."     Mr.   Blackburn

nothing was done.
A game of hockey was played last

WHAT CAUSES DANDRUFF.
Greatest   European Authority on Skin
Diseases, Says It's a Germ.
The old idea was that dandruff is
scales of skin thrown off, through a
feverish condition of tho scalp is exploded. Prof. Unna. Hamburg, Germany, European authority ou suin
diseases, says dandruff is a germ disease. The germ burrowB under the
scalp, throwing up little scales of
cuticle, aud sapping the vitality of
tbe hair at the root. The only hair
preparation that kills dandruff germs
is Newbro's Herpicide. "Destroy the
cause, remove the effect." Not only
cures dandruff, but stops tailing hair
and causes a luxuriant growth.
Delightful hair dressing.
NIGHT WAS HER TERROR.

long," writes Mrs. Charles flpplegate,
of Alexandria, Ind.,"and could hardly
get any sleep. I had consumption so
bad tbat if I walked a block I would
cough frightfully and spit blood, but
when all other medicines failed,
three $1 bottles of Dr. King's New
Discovery wholly cured me and I
gained 58 pounds." It's absolutely
guaranteed to cure Coughs, Colds, La
Grippe, Bronchitis and all Throat and
Lung Troubles. Price 50c and $'.
