Nelson,   British  Columbia, Saturday,   February 8, 1902
Eleventh Year
Canard of no Reduction Is
Denied by All Interested.
Settlement Since Jan. 1st on
Basis of New Agreement,
On January 1st a notice was sent
out by the management of the Nelson
mill Trail smelters announcing a cnt
in smelting rates. By the new
schedule a cut o.' $4 per ton was made
on ore containing over 20 per cent.
lead an d a cut ot 42 per ton on ore
containing less than that amount. The
old rato was $19 per ton for galena
ores and $13 for cabonates. The new
rates nre $15 and 111. These rates have
been in force since.
On January 24th, over three weeks
later, the Nelson Tribune in a
despatch headed. "Special to The
Tribune" and dated Sandon stated:
"There wss an important change
made in tho Bmelter situation here
this week. D. Johnson,ol the Everett
smelter, has made contracts with the
American Boy and Last Chance properties on a basis of $11 lor freight and
treatment on ore going 20 per cent.
lead or less. For ore running over 20
per cent. 20 cents a unit was to be
charged for eacb per cent, np to 40,
making the rate for that class of ore
IIS per ton. All ore going over 40
per cent, will get the $15 rate. An announcement from the Trail smelter is
awaited with great interest by the
mine owners. No settlements have
yet been received from the Trail
smelter for ore shipped since tbe first,
and inquiries have only elicited a
reply that the rate has not yet been
settled for the year." This article
wns headed "Cheap Smelting. Everett
smelter make another cut."
Mr. Johnson of the Everett smeltei
when seon the next day by a Miner
representative an-I asked regarding the
matter said that no cut had been
made by the Everett smelter since the
iirst of the year when it had adopted
the same rates as the Nelson and Trail
smelters. He also denied having
made any statement that wonld have
lead to the despatch that was sent out
fruin Sandon. This was explained in
The Miner at tbe time but the article
referred to had been sent by presumably interested parties to the east and
has been repeatedly copied, giving an
entirely uncorrect impression ol the
smelting situation here.
The statement that the Trail smelter
am' also the Nelson smelters nad not
yet made any returns on their ore or
given any statement regarding the
rates has also been reiterated.
Yesterday a reporter of The Miner
asked J. J. Campbell, of the Hall
Mines smelter, and also W. H. Aldridge. of the Trail smelter, the latter
of whom happened to be in the city
on business, regarding these statements and was informed by both men
that *hey were utterly false. Tbe rate
refened to in the circular issued by
the Nelson and Trail smelters, namely
$15 and 111 had been paid right along
since the beginning ot the year on
every ton of ore sent In to either
8. S. Fowler, of the London and B.
C. Guldfields was also seen and he
corroborated the statement of these
gentlnmeti that the returns on the ore
sent in to eithor of tlie smelters mentioned had shown the material reductions mentioned, and had been in accord with the circular issued on the
lirst of the year from that oate.
Several other gentlemen connected
with the mines of the district were
also seen and expressed theii surprise
that the teport published in the
Tribune and other papers at that time
should have been spread so assiduously when all the mine owners knew
how utterly incorrect it was. The
statement referring to the letting of
the contract of the Last 3hance ore to
tlio Everett smeller was also wrong,
no contract having been let by that
mine even yet. *
At the office of the loorman-Granite
mins tho returns of the ore showing
the reduction ln rates Blnoe the flrst of
the year were also on file.

On motion of J. 0. Elliot, seconded
by G. C. Hodge, Messrs. Buchanan,
Malone and Croasdaile were appointed
as a committee to take such steps as
tbey may deem advisable to induce
the city cou ncil to recognize tins

financial assistance as they may see
Some discussion followed regarding
the best style of building for the nen
club boathouse which the club intends
to erect as soon as tbe necessary funds
are raised. Some of tbe members
were of the opinion that a two story
building should be put up if anything was to be done at all, while
others thought that a oue store structure for a start would he enough.
On motion of H. Selous, seconded
by S. S. Fowler, it was decided to
leave the matter in the hands of the
committee to make a report to the
An election of the executive committee was held with the result that
the following gentlemen were elected
for the ensuing year: Messrs. Wragge,
Wetmore, Beaven, Jnhnstoiio and
The date for the regatta was informally discussed and it was thought that
July 25th and 26th, would be the most
suitable. It was pointed out by J. S.
Carter that as Grand Forks, Rossland,
and Trail would bo celebrating
Dominion Day, and us it was hoped
that there would be a large representation from those places come over,
that it would be advisable to have the
regatta as near the end of July as
possible, in order that the people of
those places and nearby towns might,
feel more disposed to join in the Nelsou event than it it came immediately
after the holiday. This matter was
also left in the hands of the committee.
On motion of W. A. Macdonald,
seconded by A. H. Buchanan, it was
decided that a resolution expressing
the deep sorrow of the NelBon Boat
club on the sudden death of its late
member J. Roderick Robeitson, and
also the deep sympathy felt by the
members for Mrs. Robertson and tbe
children in their bereavement should
be entered on the minutes.

Colombian Rebels Make Pro- Expert Testimony on Con-
posals for Foreigners*
To Attack Panama and Colon After Giving Notice.
Panama, Feb. 7.���Tho note from
General Uerrera was addressed to the
American, French, British and German consuls here. In it General Uerrera claimed among other things that
the government of Senor Marrouquin,
the president o! Colombia, wa s not
lawful and that, therefore, the rebels
although deploring the bloody results
of the war, would fight to thu end for
the ultimate Buccess of the Liberal
principles. General Hcrrera proposed
that the consuls addressed ask their
respective governments to declare the
line of the Panama-Colombia railway
to be a neutral one within which the
government should not build entrenchments or the Liberals attack, and tbat
only a police forje be left to guard
the line. General Herrera said ho
proposed, if possible, to compel the
government to attack the Liberal
forces and that the Liberals had a
strong fleet and army provided with
oannon, etc. General Heirera also
deolared in his note that the Liberals
considered the capture of Panama and
Colon to bo absolutely necessary for
the development of their military
plans that they would act to obtain
such resulits and that in due time
tbey would act to obtain such results
and that in due timo they would
notify the consuls of such proposed
action, allowing 24 hours for foreigners to take refuge at a plaoe of safety,
it to be agreed that the places so
seleuted wonld not be dred upon.

Two Persons Killed and Much Property Destroyed.
Horton, Kan., Feb 7 ���Fire in the
big car woiks of the Rock Island
railway tonignt caused tho death of
two persons and the destruction of
8250,000 worth of property. The fire
broke out at 4 o'clock in the hair sorting room of the cabinet department
und spread so rapidly that the employees on the soionil floor and in the
superintendent's offlco barely escaped
with their lives, many of the employes being slightly injured. The
walls of tbe car shops fell twenty
minutes after the   fire was discovered.
The loss on the building is $5,000;
machinery. $100,000; material, $150,-
000 The engine house was destroyed,
but the new $75,000 boiler plant was
saved. The fire is still raging in the

Through   Nicaragua   Offers
Substantial Shipping Advantages.
Washington, Feb. 7.���Admiral John
G. Walker,' chairman of the Isthmian
Canal commssion, testified before the
Senate committee on intei-oceanic
canals today. He wen* over much of
the ground covered by the reports of
that commission and in reply to numerous questions explaiued the reasons
for the recent recommendation for the
acceptance of the offer of the Panama
Canal eo.upany. In replying to these
inquiries, Admiral Walker spoke at
some length upon the engineering
features of the two canals. Senator
Harris qestioned espeuially in reference to the difficsilty of exacting for
the Boliin dam, developing the fact
that it would be necessary to sink the
proposed piers to a greater depth than
had ever been done for such purpose.
The foundations of the piers are 125
feet below sea level.
Admiral Walker also was questioned
coneeining the possibility of utilising
the Charges river as a part of the
canal. lie admitted that it is a tor-
rejtial stream but expressed the opinion that it could be safely confined.
With reference to the estimate that 10
yea.'s woild be necessary to build the
Panama sanal while eight years
would sniPce for tho construction of
the canal by the Nicaragua route, he
said fidf'the difference against the
Panama ronte was due largely to the
extent of the great. Culebra cut and
the Bohia dam. He thought that in
ordinary weather steam vessels would
be able to make their way through
the Panama canal without being
towed, but that towage might be
necessary when tho winds are high.
He expressed the opinion that Brito
harbor at the Pacifio end of the
Nicaragua route would possess an advantage ovor the Panama harbor, in
that vessels would be immediately
able to avail themselves in the former
of the trade winds, while in Panama
bay they would not secure thia advantage until towed out tu sea. However, he thought that good harbors
could be cheaply seemed at the western terminals of both routes.

Wreckage Comes Ashore Apparently   From  the
Unique Experience of Fishermen With Sportive
Vancouver, Feb. 7.-There is some
anxictj here over the safety of U. M.
S. Eseria which sailed nearly a lort-
night ago in search of the missing
Condor. Yesterday the steamer Queen

island, fuund wreckage which appeared to have come from a warship mure
probably from the Fgeiia than the
Condor. The wieckage consisted particularly of a 6tndding sail boom,
which is used vety little on the coast.
Tho Egeria while in dry dock roueived
rush orders to go out after the Condor
and was to cruise along the west coast
of Vanconver island. Her continued
abse.ice mav be explained by her having proceeded a long distance to sea.
Two Vancouver fishermen had an
exciting experience with a echool of
whales two days ago up the coast at
Millbank sound. Their little schooner
was anchored for the night and ono
fisherman named Todd bad no sooner

boat was thrown violently around and
Tudd waB knocked down into tho
hnlil. He scrambled up to find that >
whalei had smashed in tho woodwork
at one end of the vessel with a smash
from its tail. A large number of
other whales were in the vicinity disporting themselves and Vie fishermen
ireie compelled to move on or run tbe
risk of having their boat smashed
into kindling wooel.

Senator Templcman's candidature:
'���The name of Senator Tumpltimau
(of the Victoria Times) is again connected with thu department of Marine
anil Fisheres. We should suppose if
there is any department which might
be conveniently presided over by a
senator, it is that just mentioned, and
it would give the Colonist muoh
pleasure to be able to congratulate
Senator Templeman upon bis appointment to the position, lie would discharge its duties with credit to himself and satisfaction to the country."
The Rossland Mirer, the editor of
which was for a number of years a
valued morabor 01 the staff ot the
Victoria Times, and who knowB Senator Templeman well and favaorbly,
strongly indorses him for cabinet
minister and suggests that the various
boards of trade tnroughout the province take action similar to that of the
Victoria Hoard of Trado nnd favor by
resolution the candidature of Senator
An improved process of obtaining
metallic lead from lead ores, tho
invention of Antonin Gcrmot, of
Asniercs. France, has been protected
in the United States by patent No.
690,580, dated January, 7th, 1002, Bays
the Mining Reporter.
The ohject of this invention is a
method of treatment of lead ores in
order to obtain, nn the one hand,
metallic lead containing the whole of
the silver which the ore may contain,
and, on the other hand, metallic lead
free from silver. To this end use is
made of a crucible or converter, the
top   ot   which   is furnished with   an
duction pipo leading to a suitable
collecting chamber, or to several such
chambers, the top of the crucible
around the orifice of the said eduction pipe being hermetically closed so
as to prevent any ontry of air.
At starting o first mass of galena iB
melted in the cruciblbe, and through
the melted mass a current of air is
blown either through the bottom or
side of the crucible, or by means of
a veitical blast-nozzle entering the
molten mass. The galena rnpidly
becomes liquified and the injected air
burns part ol its sulphur, producing
sulphurous acid and lead. The jombus.
tion of air Injected raises the tempera
ture, which is maintained by the con.
tinnojs addition of fresh quantities
of ore. The lead separates from the
sulphurous portion, the latter occupying the upper part and the former
anoumulstiug in the lower part of the
crucible in a mass containing the
whole of the silver in the ore. The
sulphurous acid escapes from the
upper portion, carrying off without
contact of external air a quantity of
sulphide of lead free from silver,
which passes by the eduction pipe
into the collectors, where it condenses
in tho form of a black,heavy and very
fine powder, which is easily collected,
evon during tho course of the operation, or raintroduction in to the same
crucible, or for introduction into a
similar and separate crucible. Where
the ore treated contains no silver, the
eduction pipe may be carried vertically upward to a sufficie-ul height for
th sulphide powder to fall back into
the molten masses in the crucible,
Where the ore treated contains other
metals besides lead���sucb, foi instance,
as silver���tho distilled and condensed
galena contains no silver, the whole
of that metal remaining in the lead.
If, therefore, thefcondensed galena be
further separately treated in the same
way as the original galena, a very
pure lead will be obtained.
Senator Templeman has been indorsed by the Victoria Board of Trade,
which is maile up of members of both
the tcderal parties, fur the position
of cabinet ininis'er for British Columbia. It is inure than probable that he
will bu called to take the portfolio of
marine and fisheries. Senator Templeman has resided fur many years in
British Columbia and In his position
as editor and proprietor of the
Victoria Times he has kept In close
touch with the progress nf the various interests und industries of the
province. He knnws it from the
Ruckles to thc western shores of Vancouver Island, and from the fortv-
ninth to the sixtieth parallel.
Though his residence is in Victoria he
hns visited on many occasions every
pnrtion.of the province and knows it
like an open book. Besides he is a
man of breadth and there would be no
manifestations ot aetlonalism if he
ic so fortunate as to be taken into the
Federal cabinet, and he would work
as hard for thc advancement of the
Interests of the Kootenay  and Yale as
he would for those nf the island.
Even the Colonist, which is the rival
journal to the Times in Victoria, and
with whioh there havo been many
heated discussions over political and
other matters in which the papers
took opposite sides, has the lollowing
very  complimentary   indorsement   of
Statements continue to bo published
to the effect that the Everett smelter
has reduced the cost of smelting
silver-lead ore and giving that institution all the credit of the elecrease in
thc charges. As a matter of fact the
decrease in the transportation and
treatment charges are common to
thc smeltors of Nelson and Trail as to
the Everett establishment. As stated
in The Miner at the time of the reduction, tho freight and treatment
charges during last year were $19 pnr
ton on ore containing 40 per cent,
lead,and 20 oents eleduction for each
unit of lead less than this down to
10 per cent, for wnich $13 per ton was
charged. The rates established with
the beginning of the yoar is on the
basis of $11 for freight and treatment
on ore carrying 20 per cent, lead or
less. For ore running over 20 per
cont. 20 cents a unit will be charged
for each per ceut up to 40 per cent,
making the rate for that class of ore
S15 por ton. All ore carrying over 40
per cent lead is givon the $15 rate
Besides this there is a zinc penalty of
.10 cents a unit on ore carrying over
8 per cont. zinc.
At the tme the reduction was made
W. U. Aldridge, manager of the Cana
dian Smelting works at Trail said:
"The reduction will not compensate
the miners for the decline in metals
from the first of the year 1901, but it
is hoped the miners will find it to
their interests to continue operations
at these figures."
Since January 1st settlements
have been made on these terms for
every pound of ore received at the
Nelson and Trail smelters. The set
tlemcnt are made on the London quota
tions, less 10 pel cent, which is held
for 90 days in order to guard the
smelters against losssos caused by
fluctuations in the prices of metals
As this statement is made on tne
auth/��r:ty ot the smelter managers, es
well as mine owners, and is further
backed up by documentary evidence
in the shape of ohecks for ore shipped
to the local smelters, it may be taken
aa correct.
Transportation questions will oc
oupy a large share of the attention of
the Dominion parliament, which is to
convene Bhortly. Among these will
be an application of a bridge company
to corstruct a fonr million dollar
bridge across the strait of Canso
The Georgian Bay Canal company
will aik for an extension of time, but
it is proabble that the government
will do something in the way of taking over tbis canal during the sesBion.
A company will seek incorporation for
the purpose of constructing a ship
canal to connect Lake Huron aud
Erie. The Great Northorn will ask
for power to build a railway eastward from Port Arthur toward Mon
treal and Quebec, aud thus form a
part of the second transcontinental
line, whicn is designed to reach the
Pacific seaboard through the Rockies
via the Yellowhead and the Pine
river passes. It is understood that the
Canadian Pacific will apply lor important changes in its charter. It is
also stated that new proposals will be
made in relation to the establishment
ot a fast Atlantic steamship line
Besides this a number ol smaller
transportation proposals will be
brought up. Thon there will De the
qucstiou of taking over the telegraph
lines, and the enaction of a general
bankruptcy law. The outlook, therefore, is that the session nil) be oue of
the most important yet held.
Advertising ia assuming enormous
proportions in the United States. At

York, two hundred captains of industry, wbo produce things, and who
each spend an average of $50,000 a
year in telling abont them in newspapers,preiudicals and other mediums,
discussed at length, ways and means
of obtaining increased revenues upe.n
the investment. It wns really the first
convention of the advertisers of the
United States, and by many it is
believed to be the forerunner of a

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cnre in all Cases.
There is noth ing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in t e worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rov. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
III., says: "Yonr trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore Hi rout, and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment thetrial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.
Rev, Dr. Morris WeelMler,
Rabbi of thn Oong. Bnai Israel,
New York, Jan, 8,1901
Dr. Taft Bros. Mbdicinb Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma Bnd Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma,
Its snccesB is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it careiully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmaleno contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,
Avok Springs, N. Y, Feb. 1, 1901.
Drs. Taft Bros. Medicine Oo.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for tbe cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for tbr> past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well hs many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalen��.
My wife commenced taking it nbout the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she iB entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently re
commend the medicine to all who are afflicted with tbis distressing disease.
Yours respeotfully, O. D. PHELPls, M. D.
Dit, Taft Bbos. Medicink Co, Feb. 5,1901.
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran aoross your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full-sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four children, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make Buch use of as you see fit.

To the Editor of The Miner: Sir,���
In you issue today appears a semiofficial statoiuent frum the Hotel Dieu
hospital, Montreal, to the eflcst that
the late Uev. H. Irwin, who, as your
readers all know, was a priest in the
Church of Gnlgnnd, "a short time before bis death embraced the Roman
Catholic Faith."
Knowing the extraordinary crcdenc<
which is always given to such state
meuts by thc public, I hope that in
the absence of more definite information you will allow mo to deny thiB
rumor. I am m possession of a letter
written to me by Mr. Irwin on the
very eve of his departure to England,
as late as December 13th, in which be
saya, "if ever you have any hard
work away up north and you want
me, plcu.se let me knew, " a statement
which iB as trne to his character as it
is false to the above rumor.
I may also add that at his own
special request tho Rev. Canon Wood,
of St. John's, Montreal, visited him
before hiB death In tbe hospital.
Yours, etc ,

Lawsuit Likely to Follow Removal of
Goods Yesterday.
The question of realizing on the
estate of J. G. Bunyan and Co., who
assigned on Thursday, has been tbe
subject of much finesse on tbe part of
the various claimants. J. A. Kirkpatrick, who held the flrst mortgage
on the goods, took possession some
time ago and sold a large quantity by
private sale and afterwards disposed
cf the choice of the remainder to S.
Glazan.of Kossiand. The amounts thus
received almost,but. not quite satisfied
his claim Meanwhile Elliot and
Lennie, acting for eastern creditors,
urged an assignment and on Thursday
this waB executed in favor of N. T.
Maeleod. The Kootenay Wire Works,
who hud heard of what was going on,
through C. A. Waterman demanded
payment of a second mortgage held by
them and not receiving it, Mr. Waterman lemained on the premises. While
he wus there Mr. Maeleod, aB assignee
came in and by this time, Onslow
Newling, was on hand, and also considered himself in possession for rent,
as representative ot the owner of the
building. Mr. Maeleod asked for
Possession as assignee and 8.G. Campbell wno had been representing Mr.
Kirkpatrick, gave him the key.
Mr. Newling waa soon satisfied that
the claim be represented was good
and retired. Hi. Waterman and Mr.
Maeleod both held possession until
late in the evening and when both
were tired they agreed to depart and
that one -nould not return without the
ether. Neither of tbem appeared until
about 4 o'clock yesterday aiternoon
when Mr. Waterman, having taken
legal advice, came and opening the
store took ont what goods he considered he had a ilgbt to and removed
theni to the premises of the Kootenay
Wire Works.
Previous to this the Kootenay Wire
WorkB had been notified that the
Eastern creditors attacked the validity
of their mortgage. The goods have
now been removed and an interesting
lawsuit is in sight to determine
whether Mr. Waterman waa in posses-

It Attacks Many Persons There
To illustrate how coffee can affect
the eyes the woros of a lady in Woodland, la., arc quoted.
"I was brought up to believe that
tea was injurious but was allowed to
drink coffee from childhood. Ever
since I can remember I have been subject to seteie attacks ol headache,
otherwise my health was pretty good
until a short time ago my eyes became affected; they ached and pained
me continually and were often badly
inflamed, I also had queer, dizzy
feeling in my head almost continually.
One time wo were obliged to do
without milk or cream for n few
weeks, and not relishing my coffee
clear I left off its use. In it short
time I was Surprised to find my eyes
greatly improved, nnd I felt better iii
every way, still 1 did not mistrust
the ooffee, and began Its use as soon
as we got the cream again. Within a
few days my eyes were worse than
ever. Then I resolved to quit coffee
absolutely and take un I'ostuni. This
I did and my eyes quickly recovered

We wish to secure the services of families to do knitting'
for us ln their homes. Our method ls the same as adopted
In England. We are the Introducers of this plan and the
largest   knitting   concern  In Canada. ,..���._
After long experience, we have been able to produce an
Automatlo Machine by which all kinds of seamless knitting is now done by our Family Machine, thereby enabling
anyone ot ordinary Intelligence to quickly learn to do the
work from tho Instruction Guide. All we require is that
you use the machine according to directions. The Machine
being made expressly for this purpose, and the operation
so   simple,  lt  cannot possibly make a mistake In its work.
The gnat demand now ls for Bicycle Stockings, Woodmen's Socks, and Motormen's Mittens, and us we are unable to supply the demand, have taken this method of advertising   for  more  help.
The largo sjxport trade to the North-west Territories.
British Columbia, and the British Colonies, furnishes an unlimited demand for our goods, and, with ths combined cooperation of the majiy families we are employing, together
with the large amount of knitting we are able to turn out,
hy which wo save rents, Insurance, Interest on capital, etc.,
enables us to undersell any manufacturers of this class of
enods, and we havo Bale for all the knitting we can have
turned out.
The price we pay for finished bicycle stockings ls $10.00
nor hundred, or at the rate of 10c per pair; woodmen's
socks, 5c, and motormen's mittens, 12c a pair. All other
wm-k   ln   proportion   to size.
The machine can be operated by any one of a family
���mil at our prices any energetic family should be able to
sustain themselves comfortably, and ln time be a source of
Inslependont   comfort.
Our plan ls to send out each machine to beginners with
n snek or stocking partially knitted, and remaining ln the
machine ready to be continued, and nlso enough yarn to
knit one pair of sample socks or stockings and a simple
and complete Instruction Guide, showing how the work ls
tn be done. When tbe samples have been finished and
returned to us satisfactory, we send a quantity of yarn,
Which you knit and return likewise when finished We
propnj charges on all work one way, and our workers pav
return charges. Tho work, as we have stated, ls simple and
