Eleventh   Year
THAT BONUS
ON LEAD
How It Is Viewed by the Mining   Men   of   the
City.
The  Concensus  cf Opinion
Seems to Favor a Further Increase.
I
The tide has turned and the Feason
of depression whicli has been hanging
like a three years' drongth upon the
face of the commercial and "mining
industries ot British Columbia is
showing signs of abatement; and
"the little cloud, no bigger than a
man's hand," as indicated by Iho
special announcement contained in
the columns of the Miner yesterday,
regarding tne Dominion Government's
promised bonus of five dollars a ton
on lead, has created a spirit of optimism which has heen sqmewhat lacking
during tbe last few weeks.
Differences of opinion naturally ex-
isst in regard to the detailed workings
of tlie project, of whicli the meager
statement contained in the dispatch
admit at the present time of little discussion, but the concensus of opinion,
from the mucker out of a job to (lie
wealthy mine owner, is that the message, though brief, contains the most
joyful news the Province of Hritish
Columbia has received for many days.
Labor troubles and Thursday half
holidays are for the moment forgotten
in the general bopc which has seized
the mining population of this and other parts of tho province. Tho good
Beed sown by the delegates to Ottawa
is bearing fruit, and their request has
materialised.
A general hopefulness pervades mining men in regard lo thc future of the
silver-lend mining industry, who predict an impetus to the trade in B. C,
not alone in regard to the smelting
and refining industries, but, iu thu
direction ot nianufatcorics of lead
products. It is claimed that witli such
an ample supply of coal ns obtains in
the future-coal industry of tho province, provided iho government does its
duty, that the lead supply will encourage the establishment of lead
manufactories and thus largely increase the demand for labor and open
up fields of industry yet undreamed
of.
The immediate effeot of this action
of the government will be to encourage capital to take up lead propositions which of late have been lying
dormant and neglected, owing to the
investors being at the mercy of the
American Smelting & Refining company, who practically control the
whole of this industry on the continent of America at tho present time.
The effect which will be felt by those
financially interested cannot as yet. be
more than conjectured. Invariably
they are roticent about expressing
themselves upon the matter until they
arc in possession of more information
than is at present, in their  possession.
Practically a unanimity of opinion
exists on two points, however, viz:
Firstly, that It is a good thing ns far
aa it goes; nnd secondly, that the limit of 8100,000 Is too restrictive, and
will practically bisect the silver lead
industry of the Kootenays.
In an Interview with Mayor Fletcher ho described tlio matter as one of
much interest and value to the community, if authentic. When assured
that the news had heen received In
press dispatches from tlnee different
sources, he was prepared to believe
that tho natural result would he to
stimulate the silver-lead mining industry of the Kootenay districts. There
might be some features of it not quite
acceptable to those financially interested, but nnti'i the whole scheme was
published the details wore not discussable; but so far as ho could sec nt
the present time it wns bound to produce good results, nnd there was no
need to bother about the future; because tho fact of the government taking up tho question would compel
them to sec it through, nnd the
obnnces were that thoy would extend
the time for tho bonus to lapse until
such timo ns the province could build
up a trade and establish a market.
H. E. Croasdaile said; "I tliink
���.';-._ bonus oa refincil lend which Mr.
Sifton is reported  to  have ottered for
the government is totally inadequate,
and Unit it will he useless ns a means
of seeming a refinery for Canadian
I smelters. The maximum bonus of 81
per ton is offered for thc remainder of
this year, during which period it is
practically, impossible to get a refinery into operation. The bonus is
therefore reduced to a giant for four
years of an average of 811 per ton of
lead reilned, but limited to average
of .~l,000 tons per year. This amount
is not equal to the indirect bonus
now received by the American refineries in the shape of free entry for 10
per cent)or 200 pounds of every ton of
base bullion they receive in bond.
These 2(10 pounds sold on the protected
American market means a profit to
tho refinery at present prices of
some 83 06 per ton of base bullion as
compared to the 83 per ton offered by
the Dominion government. In addition a Canadian refinery would havo
to pay higher express charges on the
gold and silver extracted from the
lead. I think it is therefore evident
that with such a small and limited
bonus no refinery on this side could
afford to refine lead as cheaply as the
refineries south of the line, for the
refineries south would undoubtedly
reduce their charges to keep the business, and Canadian smelters are
bound to get their lead refined at the
cheapest works, irrespective of patriotic considerations."
E, R. Woakes, of tho Duncan mines,
was not, prepared to discuss the situation at. the present time, not having
gone into the question as thoroughly
as the case required to he able to say
anything for publication. The dispatch was not complete euough to
base any calculations upon, as the
exact attitude of the government
could not be determined. So far as it
went, however, it was certainly the
thing that was needed, but it was too
limited in its scope, practically eon-
fining the operations to 20,000 tons,
whereas thc country wns capable of
producing twie_ that amount.
J, 3. Campbell, of the Hall Mines
smelter,was called upon, nnd expressed himself as disappointed at the limited character of tho concession, as it
practically limited the production of
silver lead to half its actual capacity.
At live dollars per ton with a bonus
of 8100,000 is meant a capacity of only
20,000 tons, whereas the actual producing capacity would without difficulty reach twice that amount. However, there wns no wisdom in looking a gift horse in the mouth, nnd it
was useless to say much about it one
way or the other until the details
wero before the publio. He might
say, however, speaking generally that
the action of the government wns encouraging, and it was a stop in the
right directon.
Anothor gentleman, well informed
on mining ranttcrn.claimod that while
the scheme was a step In the right
direction, the term of years was too
limited. In tho Iron and steel industries the bonus covered a period of
twenty years, and it would bo necessary, .n his opinion, to grant a similar period of time to the silver-lend
industry, if it was going to be of any
practical nnd lasting benefit.
A number of tlie principal mining
men of tho city could not he seen yesterday, hut their opinions of the government's action will appear in these
columns Inter.

LITTLE WAR NEWS.
Late  Dispatches Indicate   thc Breaking Down of  Boer Forces.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
London, May 18.���War news hns almost entirely disappeared from the
London press. Lord Kitchener contents himself with the briefest possible summing up of the case from day
to day and meagre press dispatches
contain no details of any interest.
There were severnl dispatches yesterday Indicating the rapid breaking
down of the Boer forces, owing to
cold nnd starvation, and thc forecasts
of a spoedy closo of hostilities were in
a more qonfhlonl. tone than they have
been for a long time. Lord kitchener's memoranda has proved that
bands of guerrillas wero coining into
the British lines and surrondcrlng,
nnd thnt Oeneruls Botha and Delate,
had mot with heavy losses In horses
and cattle.
Tho evidence Is not yet conclusive
thnt the end of the war is near. British inngnnnmity has prolonged the
campaign. Thousands of _ women,
children nnd rofugces ure under British protection and are systematically
fed and eared for. The Boer warriors
aro not anxious about their famiheB
and consequently are enabled to stand
out. Predictions thnt the campaign
will soon bo abandoned bocunso the
weather is cold nnd the veldt dry are
not of any value, as tho Boers are acclimated to the veldt.
British reinforcements arc still going to the Cape from Southampton and
the war ollice is not suspending ils

OKANOGAN    FRUIT.
Interesting Interview   With Fruit Inspector   Palmer.
R. M. Palmer, of Vancouver, provincial fruit inspector, who has been
in Nelson for several days past,accorded an interview to a Miner reporter
which should have appeared yesterday
morning but was unavoidably crowded out by press of telegraphic news.
Speaking of the references recently
made in Tho Miner regarding the
heavy freight rates preventing a large
traffic in Okanogan frnit, Mr. Palmer
said that the new traffic rates issued
by the 0. P. R. would admit of placing fruit in thc Kootenay markbts on
far better terms than shipments made
from Spokane. The experience of
wholesale firms in Kootenay has
shown that although the quality of
the fruit from Okanogan has been
uniformly gocd.the grading nnd packing has not boon favorable. Neitliei
has it been rossible tu obtain in sufficient quantities to satisfy the demand
as the British Columbia trade has developed much faster than the production.
"At present," he said,"thc orchard
acreage could be increased tenfold and
find a ready market in the Kcoteuays.
The interest of the fruit growers and
the railway companies aro identical
and I am authorized by tlie government to use every effort to bring
about satisfactory relations between
dealers and producers and meet witli
the hearty co operation of the C.P.R.
to that end,
"In regard to potatoes and vegetables in the Kootenuy markets, the
Okanogan district can supply almost
the whole demand at lower rates than
the Americans and have thus practically captured the U. C. market.
'The same iB also true in regard to
other lines of vegetables, though here
again tho quality of American products is better as placed on the market. TomatocB, as with fruit, are in
large demand, which is only met to a
small extent hy the It. C. growers and
it is the intention of the B. C. government to foster the tomato growing
industry by encouraging the production of earliest fruits.
"In hay a good many enrs find their
way from II. C. sources, notably
from the Okanogan and adjacent districts, but the quality of American
hay is generally better, and inavria-
bly commands a higher price. Special
attention will be given to improving
the quality of hay being shipped to
tho market, and there Is no reason
why, so far as thu freight rates aro
concerned, that the markets of Jthe
Kootenays should not bo supplied by
II.  C.
"A good dell of the best land is
utilized for wheat growing und stock
ranching, many thousands of acres of
whicli could easily be put under cultivation for Kootenay and Northwest
markets. Somo of it might require
irrigation, but much of it Is well
watered.
"The great hindorniice to the development of the Okanogan district along
this line Is the difficulty of ranching the Kootenuy and eastern points
In comparison with Spokane, but If
the Midway a. Vernon railway is built
it will greatly facilitate transportation and make the Kootonny points
more acessiblc to Okanogan than
American markets and the district,can
produce when transportation facilities
make it worth while."
Asked as to thc prospects for settlors, Mr, Palmer observed that th:'
district was suffering ono great drawback, viz., tho large holdings which
wero now only used for wheat growing and ranching, anda groat Impediment to fruit growing was that
the growers had to wnitso mnny years
before their holding locnme profitable; but as the farmers get along
they invariable go more into fruit
growing.

Work, on Dawson Line Stopped
on Account of Bad
Weather.
One Hundred Miles of Wire
Have Been Strung up
the Skeena.
Vancouver, II. (.'., May 18.���J. II.
Obarleson, superintendent of the all-
Canadian telegraph lines to Dawson,
Is in the city. He reports that a hundred miles of line lias been stietehed
up tlie Skeena River from Fort Simpson. The weather had been very bad,
and there were nine feet of snow on
the main lines, so that no work could
be done to unite tho two ends. An
engineer, however, had been sent to
survey thc unfinished line, whicli had
been carefully mapped out for the
construction work. He still adher-d
to July 11th as the date on which all
lines would be finished.
Being asked what answer be had to
make regarding the enquiry made by
Sir Hlbbert Tupper as to his improper conduct in rendering his expense
account to the government in connection with construction work, Mr.
Charlcson said impatiently that they
could ull go further, as far as he was
concerned; that he had absolutely
nothing to fear, but ho was nnturnlly
anxious to havo tlio mutter cleared
up for the sake of his family; if ho
had heard of the absurd char os before be had left, Vancouver ho would
cortainly have turned buck to face
his accusers, who, Mr Cbarleson said,
had been "filled up'' by irresponsible
busybodies, one of them, he added,
having entirely changed hiB tune as
soon ns lie wns placed upon the witness stand to answor questions; of
course he could say nothing else hut
that he did under oath.
Mr. Cbarleson was asked if he referred to tho witness, Richardson and
replied that ho did. and added that
Richardson was the man who "filled
up" Sir Hibbert Tupper, but under
oath Richardson could uot hear out
his story.
Mr. Charlcson said ho felt soiry that
Sir Hibbert Tupper, should have prosecuted him as he had, not on his own
account, for tho charges were asbo-
lutcly untrue and he had nothing to
fear, but ho had a wife and nine children and It grieved him very much to
think that while ho was absent his
family had been pained hy tending the
attacks made upon his honesty aud
dished up in the newspapers from day
to day.
On being asked if he would make it
his business to be piesent when the
investigation was reopened, ho said
thnt ho did not intend to neglect
grave public business for the purpose
of being present to answer the trumped up churges, but ho wns naturally
very anxious to have the matter cleared up. nnd no doubt he would arrange to be present In Ottawa at the
proper time to answei any charges
brought against him.

The Nelson Miner
THE FAULT LIES   AT HOME.
The Victoria Colonist is  producing
a great deal of stilted nonsento   these
days in connection with   the   railway
question.    It is very angry at  the Ottawa Government   for   not responding
to Mr.   Dunsmuir's   roquest   to  "cooperate"     with   the    Province.    Mr.
Dunsmuir took pains to co all thc way
to Ottawa   to   enlighten   Sir   Wilfrid
Laurie, and his colleagues on the railway needs of Britisli Columbia, and to
ludicate with every  necessary   precis-
Ion exactly what the Federal authorities were   required   to  do.    This  exceeding  graciousnoss   on   the part of
Mr. Dunsmuir is  rewarded by coldest,
indifference   nnd   neglect.     Notwithstanding   that   their lino of duty wus
pointed   out   to them,   they   reuise to
follow it.    They do not "co-operate,"
and the  estimates   make no provision
for subsidies  to this   Province.    "Wei
await, with much  interest," says The |
Colonist, "the Ministerial explanation
of the  disregard   to the requirements
of this Province, if any is vouchsafed.
We   know   in   advance what will   bo
said here.    Wo will be told   that   tho
fault lies with the Provincial Government,   and   that thc latter would not
meet   the   Dominion   upon   nny common ground.    We think the   reply   to
Such an argument is that the   Dominion Government made no   attempt   to
discover a common ground upon which
the two authorities could meet."
We think it extremely likely that
the Dominion Government did not
make any such attempt, and it would
have been a most remarkable thing if
they had. At Ottawa and in the Legislature nt Victoiia, Mr. Dunsmuir
said to thc Dominion Government:
We have eight hundred or a thousand
miles of railway to build ; I will take
oharge of all the arrangements, deciding when, how, and by whom the
roads shall be built, and nil you are
required to do is to hand over to my
Government subsidies amounting to
eight or ten thousand dollars a mile.
This was not said in so many words,
but it was precisely what Mr. Dunsmuir's course signified. The "co-operation" was to consist of those subsidies; nothing else was required or expected ; and with these in hand, Mr.
Dunsmuir would do the rest.
The British Columbiu Premier and
his organ have something yet to learn
if they suppose that Dominion subsidies are distributed in any such fashion as this. It is truo tho estimates
contain no provision for railways in
this Province, with the exception of
that belated subsidy to the Lardeau
road, and for this Mr. Dunsmuir and
his Government are to be held responsible. If there weie no subsidies for
British Columbia.it was because there
was no one to ask for them. Subsidies are obtained on application of
chartered companies, to whom they
are voted direct; they aro not given to
Provincial Governments, to be distributed at the sweet will of scheming
Ministers who are looking for advantages that they can turn to their own
personal or political account. There
was a distinct intimation several
weeks ago that thc Dominion Govern-
1 ment would aid u Coast-Kootenay railway, but the Legislature at Victoria
prorogued without putting any company in a position to apply for it. Is
The ColoniBt Bimpte enough to suppose
thnt the Dominion Government would
hand over two or three millions of
dollars to Mr. Dunsmuir for a Coast-
Kootenay road, with the intimation
that he could apply the money in any
nianner he saw lit'.' If a contract had
been made, or if somo company hud
been empowered to build the road, the
usual application in such enses would
have gone in, and if the company hnd
been satisfactory to the Dominion
Government there would have been a
Coast-Kootenay subsidy included in
the liBt brought down tho other day
by the Finance Minister. That this
has not developed is owing to the Intrigues of Mr. Dunsmuir and his Government to keep this Province in the
grip of the existing railway monopoly.

is in New York and Philadelphia that
a  million dollars   is  being  obtained
for new stoel   works   at Collingwood,
Ont.    To    the   United   States,    Mr.
Clerguo   has hitherto  looked   for   the
vast   sums   required   for   bis   various
undertakings.    Even in tho Boundary
district,   American   capital has  done
much towards its development."    Let
us hope, however, that   tho statement
that English capital bas grown shy of j current year
us is not true.
refined lead iu Canada, it was said
that the bounty during the year 11)01
would be five dollars per ton. Then-
was evidently a mistake in transmission, the year 11102 being intended.
This is the more evidont from the
fact that the year next mentioned is
1903. As Mr. Croasdaile says, it would
be next to impossible to get a refinery
in operation   befoie  the close of  the
Tbe Greenwood Times is sensible
enough to welcome American capital,
If we cannot get any other. It says:
"During the heated discussion on the
advisability of allowing American
railways an entrance into this country, some very bitter things have been
uttered and written regarding the
United States and American enterprise. The truth is that English capital no longer considers British Columbia a favorable field for investment, and the War Eaglo and other
flotations have soured Eastern Canadian capitalists. Under the circumstances, if thc natural resources of
this country are to be rapidly developed, we must look more and more to
the South for the needed capital. In
the exploitation of the resources of
New Ontario, American capital was
largely drawn upon. It was in United States that most of tbe Dominion
Iron and Steel company's issue of 815,-
000,000 was underwritten last year. It
Nothing can diminish thc confidence
of The Victoria Times in the great
future in store for this Province. It
is bound to prosper. There has been
splendid development already, but
there will be more and greater. "Population," it says, "is pouring into
the country from Winnipeg to the Pa-
oiflc coast, and with every fresh revelation of the riches of British Columbia the stream will swell to greater
proportions. Hitherto the human inflow has been greatest in the interior
of the Proivncc.beoause there the reputation for opulence was first established. The day of the Coast sections
has now dawned also. Mount Sicker
and Alberni and Texadu Island have
all been heard from and are entering
upon the dividend stage, which is the
attractive period for capital." A new
era will open for tho Kooteiays, now
that the Dominion Government have
decided to foster the lead industry.
The future looks promising, no doubt.
Whnt a pity the Government at Victoria did not do something for the
present by adopting an honest and
practical railway policy 1
The visit of Mr. Palmer, of the Provincial Agricultural Department, will
prove beneficial, no doubt. The Miner, however, would be glad to know
how he contrived to read into a paragraph published a few days ago the
statement that it "attributed the difficulties of the Okanagan agriculturalists to the discrimination practised
by the Cauadian Pacific Railway Company in its freight rates." Nothing
of this kind was said, nor was there
the least thought of suggesting it.
We considered it strange if an Express
agent could obtain rates that would
enable the fruit growers of that district to supply the Territories and
Manitoba at moderate prices, while
the adjoining county of Kootenay had
to depend on foreign markets. If favorable rates could be given in tho
one case, why not in the other?
That was all. Was there anything In
it so very remarkable?
A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to bo a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
tltlo, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was mado from "The Morso
Pumpkin .'lour." None other just us
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand.

A leading article on our railway
question in The Toronto (Holm starts
out thus: "Hritish Columbia's Legislature concluded the session's work by
recording a virtual triumph ot the
Canadian l'acillo In regard to the
Coast-Kootenay railway. The resolution authorising a special loan to uid
the railway was adopted after an ae-
rimonlsous discussion an dthe entanglement of influences will probably
result in two prominent members of
the Opposition entering the Cabinet.
The Bill authorizes tbe Government
to enter into an agreement for the
construction of the road, and the
terras are uo drafted as to put the Canadian Pacific in a favorable position."
A Bill may pass both Houses of
Parliament, but it is not law until assented to by Ills Majesty, through his
representative the Governor-General.
The Bill establishing Victoria Day
requires this formality ; but we have
the word of the Premier that next
Twenty-Fourth will be a holiday as
usual, if His Excellency has to attend
specially to give his assent to the
Act.

TUB   FLOOD   SUUSIDING,
Waters of Cottonwood Creek Lower���
Luke Still  Rising.
For the time being the dam and the
C. P, It. ti-iu-.k are safe, the Cotton-
1 wood creek danger having diminished
during thai last twenty-four hours.
The waters of the lake, however, are
still n-sing nt the rate of six inches
during tlie lust twenty hours, und the
whole district in the vicinity of the
old depot, is a Inks of a thousand islands. Tlie water is now up to the
railway truck, but is four feet lower
than it wiison the. twenty-fourth of
May last year, and about 10 foet lower than in the yenr 1HII4 ut the time
of the Hood. Four years ago the limit
going to Kuslo on the Queen's birthday, took on her passengers ut the city
end of tho whnrf, which will be fur
from the case this year.
As a result of the freshet in Cottonwood creek, the course of tlie stream
has been changed. Along tho east
bounds of the luwn tennis court the
creek has taken a straight course fin-
bout twenty yards, which has left the
bed of the stream under the bridge
which col lapsed the first dny of the
storm high nnd dry. From there it
took a turn ut an angle of about 45
��� ... degrees, anil struck the west hank
near tbo city bridge, threatening to
carve out another channel in the
i direction of the new depot. It wns
checked by being sandbagged. On the
north side, also, it haB pursued the
same course, hy leaving the old ruts
and stinting out anew fcr the lake.
The freBhet has given employment
to a large number of men. All night
long men were kept as watchmen lo
see that everything was all right, und
to keep pnssengeis from travelling on
the dangerous part of the bridge.

A PRACTICE RIJN-
The lire brigade had a practice run
yesterday when Mayor Fletcher rang
a false alarm from the Athabasca
saloon. In about two minutes the
hose was attached to the hydrant in
front of the hotel and had a couple of
streams playing on some playing
boys and sheep near the quoit
grounds.
DANGERR IN FAST DRIVINO-
The eity wharf is fast becoming nn
unsafe place for traffic, especially
when drivers of teams violate the city
by-law by driving faster than a walk.
In places the planks aro half worn
through, Hnd one inch of pine lumber
between sky and water is nol too secure for heavy teams or furious driving.
AN ATTRACTIVE WINDOW���
Hunter A Co. retail grocers on
Baker street, have a novel advertising scheme in their wndow, which
is unique and attracts quite a number of spectators. The sill of the
window is made to represent a sea, nn
which aro huge rocks of Hunter's
groceries. On the sea is a ship of
blue, with white trimmings, and a
big white sail, bearing "ads" of the
trade.    The ship is called the Myth.

"Ease in getting a meal and economy are two important things," a
lady teacher says about the fully cooked food Grape-Nuts. "I started in on
Grape-Nuts because it needed no preparation whatever, and I wanted a
little lunch before going to bed, so I
had cream and sugar ready antl a
package of Grape-Nuts. Pouring a
little of the food into a saucer 1 treated it with good rich cream and a little augur at times, usually it was
I veet enough.
I had a meal that satisfied hunger
and I began to sleep well nights. Af.
tor a while I concluded to make my
breakfast of Grape-Nuts and a little
fruit rather than go to the boarding
house. I found that I began to improve very rapidly in health, and my
work became a pleasure. I liaie
made a most important discovery, that
is that I can have a meal served at a
cost of about one cent that is the
most nourishing meal that 1 have ever
li'i'ii able to find, delicious in ta. .e
and a real genuine 'food cure' for
stomach and bowel troubles.
I have many friends using Grape-
Nuts Food regularly." This lady livis

G01D8W.RTH TEA.
WE have had it in stock since May 2nd, and although we knew there was no Tea on the market to
equal it for the price, no matter what name it had or what reputation it bore, yet we said nothing.
We simply sent it out pound after pound and waited results. Now we can speak for it, we find it
gives entire satisfaction; isuits our customers and they come back and a��k for Goldsworth, because it is without doubt the best Tea on the market today for the price. If you do not like this Tea when you try it, return it;
we have other Tea that will suit you, but we can honestly say for Goldsworth that we have had none of it returned, no complaints from it, but in fact every person who has tried it cannot speak too highly in its favor.
We would like you to try Goldsworth. If you are afraid to risk 50 cents for a pound, call and we will
give you a pound providing you give it an honest test, because we know when you taste Goldsworth you will
have nothing else. It's a new Tea direct from the plantation, fresh and fragant. Just as much could be said
about our Coffees, they are also giving satisfaction, tfyou want to prove our statements just try these
goods. j
