Senator Turner. With Senator Turner arc I1". P,  Hogan, E. D. Saunders,
Mines Purposes Solving It.
U. S. Senator Turner Discloses Plans of His
U. S. Senator George II Turner,
une of the foremost men ill the state
of Washington, was in tlio city last
evening, en route foi Marysville in
East Kootenay. The senator told a
Mlnei representative how the Sullivan
Group Mines, limited, intended to
solvi* lhe lead question so far as theii
interests in it are concerned. Incidentally tho aotion of his company
will blaze the trail, if suucesslul, for
others to follow. The Senator iu substance staled that tlio low price of
lead had made it practically impossible for silver-lead mines having oro of
an ordinary grade to make any piotit
by sending their output to the snieit-
eis in the United States and pay tbe
exorbitant freight and treatment
charges imposed by the smelter trust.
What the Sullivan company purposed
doing wns to build a smelter at
Marysville, near its mine in East
Kooetnav. Contemporaneously with
the erection of tlie smelter it is the
intention to put up n lead refinery.
11 is contended by Senator Turner
and his associates that by smelting
tho ore in P. C, refining it in thc
same plaee. that they can (ind a niar-
lict for their lead and that mines oi* a
comparatively low grade can thus be
mnde. to pajf, A3 far as 11 .nurket is
concerned, first, there is the home
market to hi supplied and then there
��re tlio foreign markets. The Aineii-
oan lead trust pays foni cents ,1 pound
for load to Unitod Statos mine owners
and cannot afford to go outside of the
Uniled St'itos to market the load, hut
this is not the case with the British
Columbia producer ol* lend. He can
find a market in tho Orient. China,
t'or instance, uses an*enormous quan*
tlty of lend for wrapping ten, and
there has always been a steady and
reliable market for it there. Lean
will not always remain at its present
price and ono reason why its value
has fallen is owing to thc war in
China whicli has lessened the. output
of tea, and as a result lessscned the
consumption of lead. Now that tne
troubles in China aie about over tlie
producation will soon become normal
and thero will bo an increased demand for lead and as a result of this
a market for the load of Hritish Co
lunihia at bettor prioes. He contends
that there will be no competition in
tlio Orient from American lead but
that tlio Hritish Columbia producer
will have to meet tho competition
���offered by tho Spanish and tho Australian lend.
In Speaking about when tho smelter*
wonlu bo completed tlie Senator said:
"Wo are going to East Kootenay to
100k ovur tho ground and if the winter is an open one we will be able to
have our smelting and refining plant
finished and in operation by March
1st nixt year, but if the winter is

Cabinet and Brown Taken In.
(Sl'liiCIAl. TO Till!: BUlt'EIt.)
Nanaimo, Oct. !).���Tho premier has
made a furioiw attack on Mcllride.
in tlie course of an interview he said
that with ono exception all liis
pledges had been can ied out and Mcllride knew it. The exception was a
cabinet position for Helmcken but
the latter had oohaved io so extraordinary a manner that Dunsmuir had
lost confidence in him, Mcllride
found the Opposition all right when
the railway bill was passed. ltefore
that he had worried and badgered
Dunsmuir abont tho bill's passing
until lie was sick of liim, but whon it
passed he was jubilant. Mcllride. expressed groat fear lest tho opposition
would fail at tlie critical moment.
Hrown was taken into the cabinet as a
disintorested supporter of legislation
for the good of the country, not as a
Martiuito. Dunsmuir repeated that
he would not resign until he "nail
tested the house. He had a majority
of twenty-two but would accept the
verdict of the people without complaint.
Dunsmuir has given another interview in which ho says ho is not tired
of politics nor will he resign. Ho
added that overy ono of his pledges
had been carried our_cxcopting that of
taking Ilelmckoii into tlie cabinet.

Rossland, Oct. B.���A member of the
executive of the Miners' union being
shown the following despatch in tho
Spokesman-Review: Thirty members
of tho Miners' union formerly engaged
in sinking the Hve-cornpai tment shaft
in tlio Lo Roi mine by contract have
notified the company thHt they are
prepared to resume their contracts.
Tliis work would be started now were
it not for the fact that the shaft is
not iu shape for the work to proceed.
This is being attended to and the contractors will go to woik in a day or
two, said : "This is but a half truth,
suoh as wo have had to meet so often
in the course of this struggle, and
does not indicate any break in the
union ranks. The company notified
tho contractors that they would hold
their bondsmen respjusiblc if the contracts were not carried out. The contractors had no wisli to cause loss to
theii friends, and after consulting tlie
unicn, and witli its consent, offered
to complete their contracts. The oompany havo furthermore threatened to
withhold the balance coming to the
contractors wlien the slllke was called
and it would be unfair to cause these
men to lose this money."

Rumors as to Negotiations and   Probable Terminus.
Montroal, Oct. 0.���The Star's London cable says: Doubt is thrown in
well informed circles upon the stiftc-
racnts cabled fioin Ottawa, that further steamship service negotiations
are so far advanced as to permit of the
issue of invitations for tenders within
a fortnight with Sydney, Capo Breton, as the Canadian terminus. It is
known here that one big north England shipbuilding firm, hitherto unconnected with negotiations, has been
making careful and detailed enquiries
but nothing definite has been decided
on. ��� Sydney's selection as the port is
attributed to the presence there of the
Dominion Steel and Iron works,but it
is doubted if the Intercolonial railway
link with Montroal as it now exists
will be sufficiently speedy and
Tho president of the Hoard of Agri
culture has decided so far to reopen
the question of tho admission of Canadian cattle as to receive deputations
of Scottish agriculturists who desire
the leiuoval of the embargo. Agricultural journals cover tlie ministry with
warnings of the terrible risk of importing disease, foigetful that tho
prosident himself admitted that the
embargo cannot be justified on the
grounds of diseaso. It must be justified, if justified at all, on the grounds
of general policy, in other words as
a departure fiom fiee trade in the interests of the Hritish farmers.

Thomas should challenge with a now

Shamrock as a trial horse having the
new yachts tuning up strings on this
side of the Atlantic. This is considered to bo a distinct advantage for the
challenger. Sir Thomas when told
of Iho committees decision said he had
no comment tu make nor wouhl he

districts of Capetown, Wynborg,
Siinonstown, Pert Elizabeth, and East
London. The proclamation is tho
outcome of the lecont visit of the

removal. The ministers have arranged
a meeting on tho request of Dr.
Mumm Von Schwaitzonstein, the
dorman minister, to endeavor to
agree upon ioint representations in
opposition to Piineo Chlng's demand.
A controversy regarding the payment
of octroi by foreign merchants appears to havo precipitated the issue.
One company doinp a large business
with the Chinese objected to the
octroi tax arguing that the goods
were for the uso of the legations.
Prince uhing points out that goods
required by thc legations can be
ordered by them from the treaty ports
and when so ordered are not dutiable.
The foreign business community in
I'ekin, although small, is important.
Its presence is essential to the comfort.
and convenience of the legations and
its meinbeis hope their status may
now be defined.
Erie, Pa., Oot. 9.���This afternoon
a large boiler in the brass foundiy of

San Francisco, 0;t. B.���The aetion
of greatest importance taken today
by the Triennial Episcopal convention
was the adoption by the house of
bishops by a vote of 37 to 21, of canon
36, whioh relates to the solemnising
of marriages. Its provisions had
previously been figured, except those
contained in Section 1, which forbade
the marriage of persons divorced and
for any cause not existing before tlio
first marriage,   "For causes not exist-
intr before muriiagu" is understood to
refer to such causes as insanity, inability to execute a contract,the existence of a living wife 01 husband, or
like reasons which practically tendei
the marriage null and void. This see-
lion has been a bono of contention, a
strong element iu the church holding
thai the re-marriage of tlie inncecnt
parly to a divorce granted on tbe
grounds of Infidelity should not be
fuibidileti. This element have refused
to accept this view of the matter. The
question is by no means settled as the
whole subject is now to come up in
the liouse of deputies where it is expected to oause a protracted debate.

The Trail smelter at Trail is being
enlarged and when tho additions
under way are completed it niil have a
capacity of 1, IU0 tons per day. With
additions being made to the plnnts at
(Jrand Korku, (ireenwood and Trail.
a new srr.eltei under erection at
Marysville in East Kootenay snd some
others in contemplation it wculd
seem as though all the ores produced
in tho Kootenays and Yale will soon
ho treated at home, and at the same
time it is a sign that the ore output
is increasing when there is such a demand   for more smelting facilit;es.
The ore will be treated at home and
the preference will he given to the
home smelters provided a liberal
policy is adopted; iu other words, th
miner owers must tc able to do as
well at home or a little better than
they conld abroad if they give their
ores to the local reduction plants. It
Is tu the interost of the home smelters
to adopt a liberal policy and there is
hut little doubt that they will do the
very best they can by the mine owners- Jnst at present the silvei-lead
miner., are somewhat discouraged over
the low price of lead and other matters and need to be encouraged a
little. It would he to the interest of
the mining iudu.ry, when contracts
for the coming year are renewed,
if a reduction in the present freight
and treatment rates was accorded to
them. In times like the present,
wlien the prolits of tbis class of miners
are down to the miminum, it
would be good policy for the smelters to reduee their prolits a little
too. Further on when lead is higher
the charges for freight and treatment
can be adjusted to suit the times.
The following from tlie Sandon
Paystreak may perhaps partly explain
why the capacity of the smelter at
Trail is being enlarged: "The
activity of tbe Canadian Smelting
Works in securing the bulk of the
output of thu Slocan mines is causing
comment in reining circles. They
have now secure I the output of moot
of the mines around Sandon, particu
larly along the K. & S. The title
deed of the new iron deposits around
Kitchener is said to havo been made
out to T. 0 Shaughnessy, president
of the Canadian Pacific railway, and
associates. These deposits have been
proved with the diamond drill, and
found to be practically inexhaustible.
This gives the Trail smelter all the
flux of that nature required, Added
to this they have gone into the dry
ore belt around Slocan City, Silveiton
and Enterptisc and made contracts at
low figures for the output of the best
mines. All this, coupled with their
evident desire tc secure the silver-lead
output, points very conclusively to
the supposition that a refinery will he
built by this company."

may be may niois ol whicli no one
now has cognizance. Tho murderer who slays victims hy means of
poison, as shown in the present case
if tho suspicions of the police nre correct, i-i tlie most dangerous of ciiml-
nais, because It is so difficult to guard
against tbem and they can carry on
their destruction of life for such a
length of   time   undetected.     Iu   the
victims were sent to their graves before the officers of tlio law took the
murderess into custody. Hy what
mental piocesses Mrs. Witmer could
have justified herself to herself thus
to send friends, relatives and children
to death and at the same time show
no visible remo.-se is difficult to
understand. It shows that tbe machinery of her mind must have moved
in au entirely different manner from
what it does in the normal person
and proves beyond preadventure that
she is an extreme typo of tbe degenerate. She is like Jesse Pomroy, who
has been confined in a Massachusetts
penitentiary for life and who has been
a piisoner since boyhood. He tortured
and murdered bis youthful companions foi tbe mere sake of giving
them .pain and watching the agony
which he indicted.
Mrs. Winner's intellect must be
more than ordinarily subtle and keen
tu have covered up her tracks so well
thnt she could commit thirteen murders without suspicion, as it was only
when the fourteenth victim died that
she was arrested.
Justice in her case should move
swiftly to tho end that she may in
the shortest possiblo time he handed
over to the tender mercies of the
hangman,as, if the trial is prolonged,
there is danger that she may contiive
to poison the judge and the  jurymen.
With the death of Clarke Wallaoe a
prominent figure is removed from
Canaoian politics. Mr. Wallace was
a natural leader, being gifted with
genuine patriotism, unswerving honesty and loyalty to the causes which
he espoused. The latter characteristic
was evidenced by his resignation of
the important position of controller of
customs in ISM because lie ditapprov*
ed of the course of the government in
forcing separate schools on Manitoba.
That tho people fully recognized his
many good qualities is shown by his
re-election to the Dominion house of
parliament at every general election
since 187s, and when lie was re-elected
in .lune, 1890, his majority, 4,litis.
was tho largest in tho history of Canada. There are many who believe
that had Mr. Wallace been a shade
more ambitious and pushed his own
interests more that he could have been
the leader of tho Conservative party.
The fact, however, thut he was at the
head of the Orango cider, in a measure, prevented this. Hid he,however,
taken the leadership of the party It is
evident that he would havo made a
mure BUCCSIsful leader than Sir
Charles Tupper for thu reason that he
was much more diplomatic than the
latter, who lead his party to defeat.
Mr. Wallace was above all things a
patriotic Canadian and one of his
ohief ambitions was to see his native
laud prospoi and grow and nothing
pleased him more than to put into
effeot plans that woujd aid in developing any resource which would add lo
the importance of tlie Dominion. Mr.
Wallace bad an abiding faith in the
future greatness of the mines of British Columbia and it wns his delight to
discuss their present and their possible output. He hold the opinion lhat
the flow of preolous and useful
metals from our mines would within
a few decades inuke Canada one of the
wealthier nations and assist her to a
great and glorious destiny. It is all
tlie more regrettable, therefore, that
ho was cut olf in the midst of a career
of usefulness and that he oould not
have livod to see his native land,
which is already prosperous, enjoying
a still greater prosperity, fie showed
that liis faith in the mines was ot the
genuine type by investing his own
money in mining venture! at several
points in tlie Kootenays, hot owing to
his     inexperience   in   mining   it    i-i
The Vancouver l'rovince evidently
thinks tne laugh is on the remittance
men, for it says: "On one count
Caradians will join in congratulating
the duke���he has not thu s'ightest
trace of a 'haw-haw' in the way
that he talks the King's English.
After listening to his excellent intonation and unalfeoted diction, Canadians will be satisfied to smile indulgently as the remittance men talk
about what they did when they were
'rawnchin." '

The customs  revenue  continues
mount higher   and   higher,   says
To onto Globe. The revenue collected
during the month which has just
ended is over two millions and three-
quarters, as compared with less than
two millions and a half collected during September, 1000. The gain is not
far short of $300,000, nearly 11,!;. por
cent. That the gain is steady is
shown by the fact that the ens wns
revenue for the quarter of the cun cut
fiucl year just expireu exceeds by
nearly half a million dollars the returns for the corresponding period of
last year. The regularity with whicli
every trade return proves to be a sub
stantial improvement upon tlie "corresponding period last year" is perhaps the most gratifying feature of
the situation. Six years age the customs revenue for the fiist quaiter was
84,878.677, as against J8,03ji,094 for
thc quarter just closed. Almost
equally pleasant is tlio reflection that
this steady increase of revenue accompanies a scaling down instead of an
increase of tbe tariff. Over a oentury
ago Pitt amazed the poiticians of his
day by getting increased returns from
reduced duties. Some politicians
have not recovered yet from that condition of amazement. At present
SS.oOO.OOO of revenue aro collected at
a less burden to the people than attended the collection of less than
85,000,000 six years ago.

Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by the most couipeteui
authorities. They have dispelled the
'silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for hones. A correct diet will riot only nourish a particular part of the body, hut it will
sustain every other pait. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsla. You must prepare for their
ppcarance or prevent their coming by
airing regular d osos of tiioen's August
flower, the tavonte medicine of' the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy action, purifies-the blood, and
makes you feel buoyant and vigorous.

Mine     reporter    Mr.     (laming   was
asked   for some    particulars   of    the
Tourist Associations which   have been
suoh an important factor   in   attracting   tourists   to   the Maiitime  provinces, especially   dm ing   Ihe  summer

In addition to the work in the
mine, a substantial aerial tramway
���J,"00 feet long and complete in every
detail has bepn erected, so that ore
can be cheaply handled from the mine
to the railway or to the mill when
erected. The tramway has worked
very smoothly and well, the cost of
handling fifty tons of ore a day being
15 ceiits a ton.
After describing tbe result of the
work done, which does not appear tc
have given very satisfactory results,
the engineer states: On the discovery
post portion of the vein I obtained
most satisfactory values, from ,4- to
8,-is per ton, over 12 to 13 inches wide
of the paystreak. As tlie development
of tbis portiou of the vein is practically nil, no estimate of the values can
be given. On thc bCEt showing oo the
property, where high values were
obtained, notiiing more than six feet
of Woik bas heen done, and it would
appear that the best portion of the
mine exists on the southwest side of
the adit tunnel,
sinking near the
discovery post, following the ore.
This work should pay its cost, and
would eventually develop ore bodies
sufficient to supply a sirali mill with
30 tons daily. The test made at
Silica showed tbat ore running $i to
the ton would yield a proiit of 51.3:1 to
the ton, and that running $10 would
return S5.-3.

This   tiuiihlo   grew    nurse   steadily.
Sometimes it would beat  fast and  at
other ���mil's very slowly, so that 1
wouhl hardly be able to dr. work for
an hour or two after breakfast, and il
I walked up a bill, it gave me n
severe pain.
1 had no iden what the trouble was

it might be caused by colTee drink
ing. I tried leaving oil* tlio Coffee
and liegnn drinking I'ostuni Cereal
Kood Coffee, The change caine quickly. I am now gliul to say tnat I am
entirely well of the heart trouble and
attribute the cure to leaving off coffee
and the use of I'ostum Cereal Food
A number of my friends have abandoned the old fashioned colfee ami
have taken up with Postum, which
thoy are using steadily, Thero aie

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases tie heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector' ring forces the
heat to the flour. The base is hot, the lloor being warmer than wUli n
base burner.
The Hot 'Hast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the Are pot, the heated air being discharged in a'circle at the top
of lire pot, over fire, thus consuming all tlie gases and products of combustion, li can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently; by a.screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control ol the stcve with nearly perfect combustion.
Ihe large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
he floor and eiects it intensely heated, through the top adc-ing greatly
to the heating capacity. * B  B
Where the stove is operated according to directions'we guarantee it lo
����>ume a Ith e gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving ihe benefit of
all the heal ,n the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
lue over any other stove on the market. Tlie stove will hold lire from
2,\ to 4b hours without attention.
