Light and Water Rates Must
Be Paid by November
At the meeting of the city council
Inst evening, after the reading of the
minutes of the last meeting and the
report of the finance co.nruHtee,
several minor matters came up for
attention after whion the city olerk
called the attenliou of tho council to
the matter of the arrears in trade
licences, water, scavenging and light
rates, Afler some discussion it was
decided that all delinquent license
holders should be given five clays to
settle in and then if no notice was
taken that they should be preceded
against. In the matter of the water,
light and scavenging, if the accounts
are not settled by the end of the
present month the services are to be
cnt off and action taken.
Aid. Paterson called the attention
of the council to the muddy state of
Ward street between Ilakar and Front,
and after discussing the best means of
remedying the existing state of affairs
it was decided that the mud should bo
taken off in carts and used to fill in
holes in other places.
Fire Chief Lillio wbb present to
press the need of the fire department
for a new fire horse, and suggested
advertising in the Macleod, Alberta,
paper for a horse, as that being in a
horse raising section wonld probably
be productive of resultB in a short
time. This suggestion was acoepted
and the city clerk authorized to advertise for a team in the publication of
the town mentioned.
In the matter of fixing up the
channel of Cottonwood creek on the
portion of its bed owned by the city,
the city engineer was authorized to
examine the creek and make a report
to the council.
On motion ot Aid. Irving, seconded
by Aid. Madden, it was deoided that
the proposed fiscal bylaw, No. 102,
should te read for the first time, this
was unanimously carried.
The mayor stated that he had had
several letters from Victoria on the
subject of the city securing the power
site, the government expressing its
willingness to go into tffe matter as
soon as Hon. W. C. Wells returned.
As Mr. Wells is cast on a trip and
will not be back for a week or more
it is not likely anything will be done
in the meantime.
Aid Irving moved that bylaw, No.
102, be read a second time and was
seconded by Aid. Madden. Aid.
Selous moved in amendment that it
should be read a second time after
the oity had secured a suitable site for
its power plant. He said that he did
not like to say anything against the
bylaw until he had something definite
to go on. The question involved the
borrowing of $150,000 and was too
important to be rushed through without every consideration, aud he for
one would like to have all possible
facts and figures before him before he
took any action npon it. On tho
amendment being put to vote it passed, Aid. Selous, Hamilton, Paterson
and Gillette voting for it and Aid.
Irving and Madden against. The city
engineer was instructed to visit and
examine the site and seoure as much
information as possible.
Early yesterday morning a large fire
on Toad mountain in the vicinity of
tbe Silver King mine caused the
report to be eiroulated that tbe
mine buildings were on lire. The
cause of tho alarm was the burning ol
a two-roomed log cabin occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. Neally. Mr. Neally
was employed in the mine and his
wife had just arrived from Montreal,
the couple having only the day before
moved into the cabin. In the early
morning, about S o'clock, thoy were
awakened by the barking of their
dog, and on rising saw the whole of
the other room was in flames, the bedroom also having caught. The dooi
leading out was from the other room
and by the time they got the window
and   climbed   out   their   night
dresses were on fire.

BYLAW NO. 101.
Editor Miner,���I trust that the
majority of voters today will think
for themselves and vote as their com ���
mon sense dictates. The Tribune has
been doing all it oan to befog the
issue before us. Having sold an inadequate electric lighting plant to
Nelson, the editor of that paper is
doing his utmost to prevent us obtaining tbe necessary power from elsewhere. I have not seen a single practical suggestion made by the Tribune
for insuring proper lighting for this
winter. That mado by the mayor and
the majority of the council Is a practical suggestion and should be adopted���I believe I am voicing the opinion
of the maiority of property owners
here when I say that they will not at
the present stage of the game vote for
a bylaw to provide $150,000 for a
electric plant, and il is needless to
say that even If they were willing to
mortgage their property to this fur
ther amount that it would not afford
any relief this winter.
By taking the needed power irom
the W. K. P. Sc L. Oo., we pay for
the year very much less than the interest would be on (150,000. The oity
is only hound for one year, why not
follow the advice of our mayor and
council, who are quite as capable of
giving.us sound advice���indeed, muoh
rrjnro so���as the editor of the Tribune.
Try the plan for one year and enjoy
sufficient light, instead of having to
go back to coal oil lamps and swear
Ing. I cannot see how the city oan be
injured by doing this, and It Is a
matter in which I think we may vent
ure to please ourselves instead of the
autocrat of tbe Tribune.
Nine Cases of Tetanus Foi
low  Upon   Vaccination.
Camden   and   Philadelphia
Are the Centres Affected.
Philadelphia, Nov. 18.���The alarm
that has been caused by nine cases of
tetanus following vaccination in Camden,. N. J., has aroused the city
officials there to take official action In
the matter. The board of health and
the board of edncation each held
meetings today. The former decided
to request physicians to cease vaccinating persons until au investigation
as to the easue of the lockjaw cases
can oe made and the latter rescinded
the order of compulsory vaccination of
all sohool children.
Of the nine cases of tetanus so far
reported seven of the victims have
died und the other two are still'in a
dangerous condition. The buard of
health appointed a committee of three
to act in connection with the county
physicians and make a complete investigation of the whole malter.
There have been several cases of
tetanus from vaccination reported in
Philadelphia, but no special action
has neon taken.
Think Mr. Dickinson Oan Pay Moro
Than He Offered.
Sofia, Nov. 18.���Another letter has
been received from Miss Stone. Her
health has been somewhat affected by
her continual confinement and hard
fate, bnt she expresses herself as still
confident of ultimate release.
A letter to Mr.Dickinson, diplomatic
agent ot the United States at Sofia,
replying to his proposals concerning n
ransom, says tho brigands will hold
ont for a figure very much above the
sum at Mr. Dickinson's command.
The brigands interpret Mr. Dickinson 's not having fixed on the sum he
is willing to pay and on a time limit
as being indications that he can get
more money. Tbey also demand im-
munjty from prosecution. But it Is
impossible for the diplomatic agent of
the United States here to have power
to bind the governments of Bulgaria
and Turkey. Tbis point, however is
not likely to be a serious obstaole in
the way of the negotiations. .
Washington, Nov. 18.���Anothei
cablegram received from the United
States Consul General Dickinson at
Sofia today indicates that, while Miss
Stone has not yet been ransomed,
there is reason for feeling reassured
as to her future. The despatch furnished evidence that Mr. Dickinson
remains in indirect communication
with tbe brigands or their agents.
One Man at the Baby Mine Rescued
After Four Days.
Pocahontas, Va., Nov.18.���The work
of removing fallen slate and debris
from the Baby mine still continues.
This morning the body of Peril./
Moulter was found entombed iu a
room on tbe west side. Ho was living, but a few hours more no doubt
would have brought death. For six
hours physlcaius worked with him before lie was restored to consciousness.
He is yet feeble but Is likely to
There was great rejoicing when the
news spread that he had been recovered alive. Moulter says that all
within the mine on Thursday commented on the heaviness of tbe atmosphere and that a number of the men
left work before he did. He loon
found the danger was imminent and
with several others started to run
from the drift. A heavy report which
shook the mountain wan heard and
an instant later a huge cloud of
smoke and flame was seen coming.
He lost sight of his companions bnt
he turned into a side room as quickly
as possible and was shut off by falling slate. Possibly twe days elapsed
before he succumbed to the foul air.

1 Hay-Pauncefote Treaty Awaits
Ratification  by  the
Preliminaries  Completed at
Washington at Noon
Washington, Nov. 18.���Nothing more
remains to be done in regard to the
signing of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty,
which took place at 12.05 today before
the senate meets, or Indeed until the
treaty shall have been ratified, rejected or amended. If il should be ratified the state department will proceed
to Immdistely negotiate the treaties
with Costa Rica and Nicaragua for
which it already has arranged in
protocols standing before the senate
which will permit tlio canal to be constructed and prescribe Ihe terms up in
which the consent of Nicaragua an1
Costa Rica is given. It was in anticipation of tins action, it is presumed,
that the Nicaragua government only
recently denounced the treaty of trade
and commerce with the United States.
This treaty contained directions Con,
veying rights as to canal construction
which are to be replaced by more
modern provisions. There was no par
ticular ceremony connected wilh tho
signature today of the important conventions. Lord Pauncefote had been
Indisposed for several days past and it
was not, expected that the treaty could
be signed betore the end of the current week. However, to tbe surprise
of the slate department ollieials th"
ambassador appeared at the deportment about noon nnd tbe work of
signing the treaty was soon dispatched. Tho scene was in the historic
diplomatic chamber of the state department and beside the principals,
Secretary Hay and Lord Pauncefote,
there were present Mr. Sidney Smith,
chief of the diplomatic bureau of the
United States state department: Mr.
Percy Windham, the second secretnry
of the llritish embassy, and William
Uwyn and Edward Savoy, the secretary of state's private messenger
whose duty it was to attend to the
plaeing of the Peals. The treaty was
signed by Secretary Hay with a gold
pen in a silver penholder which had
been used in tbe signature of other
conventions and is the personal property of the secertary.

There is evidently a change of front
on the part of the   mine owners in ro-
gard to the erection   and maintenance
of a lead refinery,   as   a   definite plan
is to be submitted at the   forthcoming
meeting   of   their   association   to  be
held   in   this   oity on December   4th
Those interested   in the   project   havi
evidently   seen   its   possibilities in a
now and more favorable   light   as the
concensus of opinion   ainoDg the mine
owners   and the parties who have the
refinery in hand, when   the last meeting of the mine owners was held,was
to the effect tbat there was not sufficient silver-lead ore mined us   yet   nor
would there be for some time to come,
to.supply enough matte   for the refinery.     It was  also   urged against the
erection of the refinery that   the mine
owners would not guarantee sufficient
ore, and   that   the   supply   furnished
it   was  not    steady,   for   the   reason
that  shipments   were   large when the
prioo  of   lead   was   high   aud   amatl
when the price of lead was low.    The
refinery people wanted full   assurance
of a steadv supply of mat'e.
It has since been demonstrated,however, that the refinery will not have
to rely entirely on British Columbia
ores for material to keep it in operation. , There arc silver-lead mines in
northern Washington, Idaho and Montana.which, owing to their location,
would find it profitable to ship .lien-
ores into British Columbia for treatment, and the outlook is that the
home supply can be supplemented to
a considerable extent from thir
Bource, just as Ihe American smelters
before the mines of the Coenr
d'Alenes gave them_.niore lend than
they need, added to the home supply
by purchasing ores in East Kootenay,
the Lardeau and Slocan.
One of the projectors of the Sullivan
smelter at Marysville in East Kootenay was asked where the dry ore
whieh would be necessarv for the
fluxing of the wet ore of the Sullivan
and other East Kootenay mines would
be procured and the reply was that it
���would have to be purchased wherever
it was for sale. The purchases would
be made preferably at home, but if a
suffioient supply could not be bought
here they would buy it from the
mines in the United States.
This is showing the right sprit, and
the sort which should animate those
who have the refinery project in hand.
If the local supply of lend ore is not
��� sufficient purchases of lead ore could
be made in the United States. Tin-
ore could be reduced in the locul
Bmelteers and tbe leBd refined in the
local plant. While it is true that on
the lead ore not mined in Cnnada no
Dominion bounty of *���'' per ton would
be paid Hill the lead ore brought from
the United States would aid in keeping the refinery in operation.
There would, wa believe, be only a
short time during which we would
have to go abroad for lead ores, indeed, it Is doubtful if it would lie
necessary to do so. It would
probably take a year to build the
refinery and iong before that time the
railway now building into the Lardeau will have opened up a section
that is rich in silver-lead mines. Besides this new mines of thn kind are
constantly being opened elsewhere in
B, C, and the outlook is thnt the
production of silver-lead ore will be
greatly enlarged within the next
twelve months and the indications are
that by the time the refinery is ready
lor operation there will be more than
sufficient home material tj keep lt
going the year round.
That the refinery would be profit
able no one who will look into the
situation can for a moment doubt.
Putting into concrete form the results
that would follow the produoing and
refining by Canada of all tbe lend she
would require for the use of her own
people, it will lie seen that quite an
army of men wonld be employed and
thn resulting addition to the levenue
of the mines would pay interest on a
considerable amount of capital.
In August Canada actually paidf81.-
filll  for   lead  in  all   forms, the total
weight used was approximately 2,055,-
345 pounds, which at three cents a
pound, had they bought it from aXan
adian refinery, would have cost SGI,-
600. Canada thus paid 810,959 to
foreign manufacturers for labor and
profits and in addition paid $6,191 in
duty, making a total at the rate of
$313.silo for the year. This makes no
provision for profit on the material
used���it is all labor, running expenses
and profit. Of this sum it might
therefore be safely presumed that two-
thirds would represent the wage bill
which is sullicient to pay -00 men an
average wage of 81,000 a year, an
amount that is not to be despised.
Should the quantity of lead produced in Canada hy the price on that
consumed at home being put up to
three cents per ponnd. be increased to
.,000,000 pounds per month, ns would
undoubtedly be the case as lead
would then average the producer 2!tf
cents a pound.it would mean upwards
of 845,000 more per month to be die
tributed among the refiners, smelter
man and miners than at present, or
almost (150,000 a year. To produce
tbis quantity of ore would mean an
increase in the working staffs of these
enterprises of upwards of 250 men.
No account is here tlliken of the silver that invariably accompanies lead
in ore The difference in the prices
of oie wonld enable ore to be mined
for the lead it contains, so that all
receipts from silver would practically
be profit. All these things working
together would give an impetus to the
working of silver-lead mines suoh sib
the industry in Kootenay has never
In tea lead the Imports amounted to
162,1U!I pounds for the month of
August at an average cost of 4.97 cents
per pound. No duty was charged on
this so with lead at three cents a
pound there is a margin of 1.97 cents
per pound for manufacturing it.
Of lead acetate in August there was
102,108 pounds imported at an average
cost of 4.47 cents per pound leaving
1.47 cents for manufacturing. No
duty is paid on this commodity. There
was 1,378.089 pounds of red and white
lead imported at an average cost,
eluding an only 5 per cent, duty, of
4.15 cents per pound which allowB
1.15 cents per pound for manufacture.
Time and careful attention to the
business would no doubt procure
foreign markets for the surplus lead
either in its crude or in the manufactured state that would return the
miner more than the one aud one-half
cents per pound on which theso calculations have been based.
consideration it seems to The Miner
tbat the best solution of the dilllcntly
in which the city finds itself is to take
the power from the Power compnny
for a year, as no franchise which
inheres to-the city, so lar as the right
to fuinish the citizens with lights is
concerned, will be lost or endangered
by the arrangement. The ratepayers
will, therefore, be acting wisely is
they vote in favor of the adoption of
the bylaw.
Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by the most competent
authoiities. They have dispelled the
billy notion lhat one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for bonefl. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other part. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppearanee or prevent their coining by
aking regular doses of Green's August

digestion, stimulates the liver tn
healthy action, purifies the blood, nnd
makes you feel buoyant nnd vigorous.
