One  Hundred
Trackmen Went
holding out.    .Shaughnessy's   circular

1 Montreal, .lune 31. ���A monster mass
meeting of all the Federated Union
laborers in Montreal will be held
within u few days in support of the
and IWenty jstriidng Canadian Pacific trackmen.
This was decided at a five hour session of the Federated Trades and Labor Council last evening.
Good  Feeling  Prevails and
Work Was Gompleted Before Walkout.
Yesterday morning the strike of the
trackmen on this section of the C. P,
1!. was inaugurated. It is not likely
that many strikes have been started
anywhere under us novel (jircum
stances as this one in Nelson was. In
this division were over one hundred
men employed, a large numbei of
whom were Italians. The great majority of tlie men were niembe.s of
the union, and when tbey went nut
all but four of the other laborers followed suit 'Ihe peculiarity of the
situation lies in the fact that as the
relations between the men and the
company officials here were most cordial, before they quit work the men
employed at the west end of the yarn
hurried the work in order that there
would be no trouble in handling
trains over the switches which they
were fixing, and which control that
end of the yard, over which all trains
coming east or going west must travel. The men stated that while tbey
(���minting the trackmen in general)
had grievances which should be rectified, that all the action that would be
taker, by the men in this section was
simply to quit work until the difficulty was settled. There bud been no
thought of in any way interfering
with the company, aud wlien several
of them were asked about the finishing up ot the switches before they
quit work, which had been noticed by
an outsider, tbe reply in each ease
was'that they had waited to linisli
this work befoie quitting. No better
illustration of the position ot things
here than this is needed, as it shows
that while a certain amount of loss to
both sides here is inevitable, yet in
no place, when the difficulty is settled
are affairs likely to resume normal
conditions more quickly than in the
Nelson   division.
As near as could be learned some
120 men have gone out in th. division. The first real notification of tht
strike being on occurred yesterday
morning, when tho woik train which
had gone out ut 7 o'clock, loaded with
materia] for ballasting the ties near
the new switches win2b had been
completed tho night before had to re
turn because there were no men to unload them.
A few kept on till noon on various
jobs which were 111 gent, but by 2
o'clock, so far ns could be learned,
none but the four mentioned,who had
been put on na watchmen, were working. A simMar condition is said to
exist from Nelson \o Midway, and also on the Slocan branch.
This morning many of the men,who
live in shacks along below the smelter, wore occupying their time in cutting wood and doing various odd jobs
around their premises. AH, while
much in earnest about thu strike, ex-
prcHcd the hope that it would not last
for more than a few weeks.
Yesterday the railway yards, which
generally resound all day with tlie
sound of pick and hammer had an air
of Sabbath culm. Hand cars stood
idly in the ditches, while thc tools
and Implements of labor were piled
In the various storehouses, to await
the resumption of labor, quite a few
of the men have gone off on fishing
trips, and some prospecting, but the
majority express the intention Jof
staying right in town for a'few weeks
until it is seen how things are shaping. 	
Vancouver, 11. C, June 21.-This
evening the report of the trackmen's
strike was to tha effect thnt none of
the strikers had gone back to work.
A report that strikers had attempted
to wreck a train at Field was emphatically denied at Mr. MnrpoleN ollice,
where it was reported that the strikers wore very orderly and no trouble
whatever hud occurred,

Discoverer  of   the   Famous   Property
Vibiting the City.
Mr. Henry Smith, of Duncan, Van-
couvei Island,is in town as a delegate
to the Grand Masonio Lodge. Mr.Smith
is the original locator of the now famous Lenora mine, which is claimed
to be one of the best paying properties
in the Province. The mine is located
not many miles from Duncan, and for
the past three years has shipped on
an average 75 tons per day giving
smelter returns of 835 per ton. The
property was located in April, 181)7,
and after the usual trying vicissitudes fell into the hands of a Scotch
syndicate, who took a working bond
of 825,000. Before, however, this had
expired, they discovered what a good
thing they had, paid up, and resold
the Lenora for 810,0000. Since this
profitable transfer the fortunate possessors havo realized handsomely, and
although the corporation is a very
close one, it is well known that their
profits are away np. Tbey ship
chiefly to Everett
The Tyee is ah adjoining property
for the location of which Mr. Smith is
responsible. It is being operated
very successfully.
Mr. Smith is paying his first visit to
the Kootenays, and while he realizes
the immense possibilities of this favored section of the Province he declares that Vancouver Island is good
enough for him, and that he would
not leave it and its inducements for
anything on the mainland.

One of the delegates to the meeting of the Masonic Grand Lodge is
Frank Bowser of Vancouver. He is
particularly fond of a joke and when
he can make a fellow Mason the
victim of one h3,is happy. But there
is one thut ho does not tel.l.i It happened lo hin. 1- his bachelor days

Mr. Bowser asked her what waB In It.
The young lady was visibly embarrassed and asked if it was really necessary to tell the contents.
"Well, if you don't, I will have to

The young lady pleaded, but in

and said, "Very well, take down the

Visitors Tendered a Banquet
by Local Lodge Last
A very sad, and fntal accident occurred at the C.P.R. yards yesterday
afternoon about 5 o'clock when'Neil
McLennan was run over by n yard
engine. He was pausing along the
pathway leading from the new depot
in the Jirection of the old station
bouse. Standing on the Cist track
was a train of empty cars, and McLennan passing between two of the empties was crossing over to the other
track and apparently did not notice
the yard engine approaching from the
wharf where the trainmen had been
unloading a scow. The train was
coming at a good speed but not before
the trainmen were right up to tlie
spot where McLennan was crossing
was he observed. Fireman John Goos-
trey was the first to notice the condition of things and the engineer immediately pulled up the train. lint it
was too late to avoid rnnning into
McLennan. The train was pulled up
in the distance of two car lengths but
in the meantime the unfortunate man
had become badly mixed up in the
wheels uf the engine. When the train
was brought to a standstill it was
found that the unfortunate man was
under the wheols. Jacks wore at once
procured and ar, army of willing
hands proceeded to extricate the injured man. Owing to the sudden application of the brakes the cais
were so tightly jammed that it was
found necessary to loosen up the ones
adjoining that under which McLennan was pinned and it wns nearly a
quarter of an hour before he was released. Mr. Fraser, foreman of the
freight department,produced a stretcher on which the injured man was
placed. By this time Dr. Arthur
and Dr. Ball were in attendance and
they dicovered that the left arm was
cut off, the face badly cut, the left
leg lacerated from the hip to tlie knee
and tho leg broken. The injured man
was conscious all tins time and his
cries and groans were heartrending to
hear. He was at once conveyed to the
general hospital.
McLennan is a brother of Captain
McLennan of the S, S. Nelson, which
boat was lying at, tho wharf about
200 yards away and tho captain was
soon on the spot and assumed charge
of the injured man. Neil McLennan
was employed on the S. S. Nelson and
was just returning to the boat after
spending a few hours up town. He
is about thirty-five years of age. The
yuid engine No. 581 was in charge of
Engineer Daniel Murray and Fireman
.lohn (loostrey, who were in no way lo
blame for the accident. They promptly pulled up their train as soon as the
man was perceived to lie in danger of
being run into. When the train was
brought to a standstill every assistance was rendered by the trainmen,
C. P. R. employes and the local olll-
The unfortunate man succumbed
to his injuries and died about half
past oight. The deceased was a married man and leaves a wife and four
children. The bereaved wife and
family have the sympathies of thc
community. Mr. McLennan has been
a resident of this city for several
years and his Bad end comes as a great
shock to his large circle of acquaintances.
Toronto, June 21.- Henceforth the
practice of fortune telling in Ontario
will be decidedly hazardous, the court
ot appeal has allowed the legality of
the conviction of Mrs. Marcott, a
noted city fortuneteller, on the evidence of two female detectives, who
visited her nnd had their fortunes
told. ^The judges at tho hearing commented very strongly on the practice
of the police of hiring spies to go to
persons suspected of committing crime
and tempt them, but thev dcided that
evidenced sc obtained, when clear and
plain, could not be sot aside.
Mayor G. A. Carlson of Kaslo, is
in the City and attended the Masonic
banquet last evening.
The most successful meeting of the
Masonic Grand Lodge ever held in
British Columbia concluded its woik
yesterday aud adjourned to meet next
year 111 Vancouver. For some years
the Kootenay lodges have been endeavoring to persuade the grand lodge to
meet In the Kootenays but never with
success until a year ago when the
place for the recent meeting was to
be decided upon. Nelson was chosen
and at the meeting just closed nere
concluded there were four more delegates attending than there were at
Vancouver last year.
The business of the meeting was
Concluded early yesterday and last
night the' local Masons tendered
tneir visiting brethern a banquet in
Fraternity hall. Nelson has had
several successful banquets but never
one more successful than that held
last evening. There were some 175
Masons piesent and-they completely
filled the large hall The tables were
tastefully set and the generous use of
flowers added to their appearance.
The R..M.R. orchestra was in attendance and its music was much appreciated. The first important matter to come before the gathering was
the menu'. Masons are just like ordinary people as far us appetites are
concerned and they seemed to thoroughly eujoy the array of good things
put before them. Thos. Matthews
was the caterer, and he did his work
When most of the dishes of the table
were emptied they were cleared away
and preparations were made for the
intellectual feast that was to follow
the more material one. It was then
that the Masons showed what orators
they had among them. There are after
dinner speeches and after dinner
speeches but for oratory und wit combined the Masons surpassed any tiling
ever heard in Nelson before.
The first toast was to "The King
and tlie Craft," und it was received
with musical honors.
"Tlie Most Worshipful Grand Lodge
of British Columbia,"' was the next
toast and R. W. Young, H. II. Watson and Dr. Walker responded. Their
speeches dealt with the progress of
.Masonry and the good that it was doing. Capilul stories were told by the
speakers to enliven   the   proceedings.
"Grand Olllcets Past and Present,"
was the third toast. Mr. C. C. Chip-
man first responded to it and made a
capital speech. Be fiiBt proceeded to
explain how he could not make a
speech and then showed that he did
not know 'vhnt he was tain ing about
by making ono. IfpTt, ftl. Esnor Sharp
follo.ved hi in ami his remarks were
received wilh rounds of applause.
Mr. Hoivsei, K. C, of Vancouver,
also responded lo the tonst with some
very entertaining nmirks,
"Sister (linud Lodges," brought
forth \>. decidedly witty speech from
Mr. Bond whose remarks made it unnecessary for hiin to explain that he
was an Irishman.
"Sister Lodges of the Jurisdiction,"
brought forth the speech of the evening from Kev. L. Norman Tucker.
Tlie reverend gentleman is an eloquent speaker and he dealt with the
good things that Masonry teaches.
Wlien he spoke of the attractions of
British Columbia and deseiibed, In
comparison, his own experiences in
sailing on the Mne waters of Switzerland's much fumed lakes, in climbing the toweling mountains that have
made that country famous, iai crossing
the world-famed glaciers that lie beneath the peaks of that mountainous
country aud then brought his hearers
homt to the land of their adoption
his remarks were received With most
enthusiastic cheers.
"Visiting lliethern," wa6 responded to by Mr. Guticlius and Mr. R. E.
Fishbutn. The latter a member of a
Chicago lodge, proposed the toast of
"Great Britain and tbe United
States," and   it   was   received    with
Kootenay Lodge had the same   honor
Dr,     Quintan,     the   popnlar    Grand
Secretary, was   received   with  cheers
and made a very   interesting   speech.
The musical part of the proceedings
was of a high order. -Besides the excellent selections of the orchestra
there were songs by Messrs. George
Kydd, James Slater, Lutliei Lennox,
R. W. Day, T. G. Procter and others.
Most Worshipful Master Fred Irvine of Nelson Lodge, No. 23, presided. On his right were F. McB.

United States where he was making
enquiries and arrangements for an
assay office at Vancouver. The minister now feels satisfied that an office
will be established by thc 15th rof
July at Vancouver. The only fiiffl.
culty that might prevent this will be
obtaining suitable premises or delay
in arianging of machinery and necessary plant. Riley, chief clerk of the
mining department will leave on
Monday for Vancouver for the purpose
of making necessary arrangements.
Victoria, B. C, June 21.���Two
parties leave Victoria within a few
days on an expedition which recalls
Cook's Island treasure search. A
man died in Seattle a year ago and on
his death bed said he had burled
8150,000 on a small island on the
north western coast of British Columbia. These parties claim they havo
found the location of the Island and
as it. is a mere patch of land it will
not take much labor to investigate
the tru'.h of the man's story.

In The Tribune yesterday morning respecting the forged cheque which the
man, Harry McDougall, alias Parker,
passed upon him recently. In an interview with a Miner reporter last
evening he requested that the following statement be given publication:
"On June nth, Harry McDougall
alas Parker came to the hotel with a
cheque from the Highlander mine
bearing the signature of Maxwell
Stevenson and made payable to Hairy
Parker. The cheque was cashed
by me at half past one on the morning
of the 0th of June. It was presented
as payment for a 82H board bill and
he received the change on the cheque
which was of the amount of Ski. At
half past eleven of the same day the
cheque was presented at the Bank of
Montreal and accepted. At half past
two the same day the bank authorities
discovered that It was a forgery and
notified me to that effect and I refunded the money."

Victoria, B. C, June 21.- There is
a crisis in educational circles in this
city. Two lady principals, Miss Agnes
Dean Cameron, and Miss Williams
were suspended this morning by Superintendent of Education Robinson.
The trouble arose out of the new regulations formulated by the department at the begining of the year abolishing written examinations for promotion purposes. The teachers are opposed to this and yesterday Miss Williams and Miss Cameron held written
examinations, though nothing wns
said regarding promotion.- Baton, the
oity suprinrendent, visited Miss
Cameron's school, found the examination papers, collected them and left
the room. A somewhat similar state
of affairs took place with Miss Williams. A secret conclave of trustees
was summoned and a resolution was
moved by Ilelica, who opposes lady
principals and Miss Cameron in particular, lo the effect that they must
undertake to sign nn agreement expressing their willingness to abide by
the Board's instructions or be bus-
pended. The ladies concerned were
not asked for an explanation and contend that there was nothing to show
that the examination was for promotion. This was followed this rooming
by tbe suspension of thc two principals by Robinson. A great deal of resentment is felt over the   Board's   ac-
Late this evening Superintendent
Robinson was summoned to a conference with Miss WIlHams and two
trustees, and under pressure admitted
that he had suspended iter on being
told that she was violating ink's, by
Russel of the High School, whose sister, one of Miss William's assistants,
hail told him. As tlie examination
was in arithmetic, one of the subjects
exempted by the regulations, il was
held that there was no breach of them
and she was therefore reinstated.

The   Nelson     Publishing     Company,
Dear Sirs,���We are instructed by
John Houston, Esq., M.P.P., to write
to you demanding an apology in tomorrow morning's issue, in regard
to the libellous statement referring tj
him, contaiued in the paragraph in
today's editorial column of your paper, which reads as follows:
"-'It would pay the Province of B.
C. to- hire an advertising agent,' says
The New Denver Ledge. 'The Provincial Secretary in handing ads to
the press exhibits about as much
sense as a fool at a wedding.'
This remaik would give the impies-
sion that the editor of The Ledge is
more innocent than the majority of
his readers would credit him with.
Government advertisements as a rule
are not intended to advertise ; they are
designed and distributed as pap to
hungry supporters. In Nelson they
are a part of the price paid by the
Government for the vote of a member
who was elected to oppose them. They
thus serve as a means by which a
Government can entrench themselves
in power; in other words, they are
cheap and handy instruments of bribery. "
Unless a full and complete apology,
to our satisfaction, is published in tomorrow morning'H issue, we shall on
his behalf, forthwith commence action against you for damages for libel.
Yours truly,
Nelson, B. C, June 21, 1901,
The Miner has no apology to make.
It will take a good deal more than
Mr. John Houston to close its mouth
against free criticism of public men
and events, when that .riticism is at
the same time within limits that are
recognised   as legitimate.
P. S.���Speaking of itself, The Tribune yesterday said: "It is now

There is no necessity for. a dispute
as to what the mineral tax is, when
thc words of the statute may be produced to speak for themselves. An
Act ,o amend the "Assessment Act."
was passed during the session of 1900,
section five of which amends section
10 of the original act to read as follows: "There shall be assessed, levied, and collected quarterly from
every person owning, managing,
leasing, or working a mine, and paid
to her Majesty, her heirs and successors, two per cent, on the assessed
value of all ore or mineral-bearing
substances raised, gotten, or gained from any landR in the Province,
aud whicli have been sold or removed
from the premises." Then follows a
proviso to remit a portion of the
tax on mines producing less than five
thousand dollars a year, if mineral,
or two thousand if placer 0/ dredging.
The Act calls for a tax of two per
cent, of the assessed value of the ore.
The next amended section is ostensibly intended to sho.v how thu assessed value is arrived at. It gives a
number of directions as to returns
that ure to be made by mine owners,
amung which are: the cost per ton
'for transportation to smelter or mill;
the cost per ton for smelter or mill
charges; the amount of ore treated on
the mining premises j the value of ore
shipped, cxclusi/e of the charges for
freight or treatment; the value of the
ore treated on the mining premises,
exolusive of the charges for treatment.
Then follows this Section: "The
assessor shall forthwith, after receiving the statement referred to. or from
such Information as he may bo able
to obtain, notify tho manager or other person to whom notices may be
addressed, of the amount payable in
rest ect of the output of the mi no for
thc preceding quarter,and require payment thereof, and shall stato the
date of the next silting of the Court of
Revision and Appeal,"
It Is nowhere expressly directed tbat
the assessor shall deduct freight and
treatment charges, and return the
remainder   as   the   assessed valuo, al-
though it is only reasonable to conclude that it was with that object in
view provision was made for the returns referred to And in actual practice it io probably the 'fact that the
assessor does make the deduction in
question. The assessed val'ie, therefore, on which the two per cent tax is
levied, is the gross value, less thei
charges for freight and treatment. I
That may go witho'it further saying.
The objection to the tax, however,
is not so much that it is levied on the |
gross or net value, as it is to the fact
that it is imposed in double force at
a time of depression '.a the mining
industry, and when it was most important to encourage the introduction
of fresh capital to revive it. In 1878
the Canadian people voted in favor of
a policy for the fostering of native
industries, and in all the political
chauges since that policy has been adhered to. In British Columbia we
foster our principal industry by taxing it.       	
Schwab had done Carneige immediately sent Schwab his cheque for 84,-
800,000, balance called for by the contract. What the modest and complaisant Schwab has done with the
cheque has not yet been disclosed. It
is a pity there should be so much
trouble in disposing of five millions���
but, then, what a fine story it makes!
Surprise is often expressed that the
average American is imbued with such
a strong feeling cf prejudice against
everything British, a prejudice that
often amounts to hatred. It is owing
to his ignorance. In school he reads
histories teeming with exaggerations
and falsehoods intended to present the
British in an unfavorable light, and
after he leaves school he reads nothing but American newspapers. What
these are we will show in a word,
taking as an example one that is well
known to many of our readers, The
Spokane Spokesman-Review. A recent
issue contains from twenty to twenty-
two columns of telegraphic matter,
the matter that is supposed to. furnish
its readers with the news of the
world. There are two London cables
of about twenty lines in all, both on
American subjects and sent and published because they are American.
There is a Rossland dispatch concerning the Hawkins prize fight. There
are two mining dispatches from Kailo
and one from Ymir, sent and published as local news. These together
make less than half a column, but they
cooipr'se every word of "foreign"
news. Half a column out of twenty,
and even that Tore domestic than
foreign. How can American youth
thus fed be expected to know anything of other countries, or to have
minds broad enough to appreciate
anything outside of their own?
There is talk at Ottawa of convening the House at the time of the visit of the Duke and'-Duchess of Cornwall, in order that memters may
have an opportunity of meeting their
Royal Highnesses. It apparently has
not occurred to the author of this brilliant idea that it is possible for members to meet tho visitors without the
assembling of Parliament. Maritime members can go to Halifax or
St. John ; Quebec members to Quebec
or Montreal; Ontario members to
Toronto; Manitoba and N. W. members to Winnipeg; while British Columbia members ao.io.'B to bask In a
Royal smile can go to Victoria. The
suggestion of a session is for the purpose of making the country pay mileage allowance and indemnity of fifteen hundred dollars to members who
are itching for presentation to Royalty.
It is so scandalous that we do not suppose Ministers will entertain it for a
If tbe Granby people put np a refinery at Vancouver, the Canadian Pacific company will hardly erect another at Nelson or elsewhere. It is
thought that one refinery will suffice
for the present needs of the country.
But is Vancouver ths most suitable
place for an entreprise of that kind?
If it is not, the natural demands of
business, which are inexorable in the
long run, will find out the proper site
aud utilize it.
The Full Court at Victoria has decided that a half-sister is a sister, and
comes within the degree of consanguinity that entitles to the lower rate
of succession duties. This decision
frustrates the Government in a design
lo exact ten per cent of an estate
instead of five. It was a strange
point to raise, and apart from the
wonder and curiosity it naturally excited there will be a general feeling
of satisfaction that the Government
"got left."

The following article written by R.
0 Camp'uell-.Iolinston, M. I. M. M.,
for the Mining Journal of London,
England, will undoubtedly be of interest :
,., British Columbia has a vast urea of
'mineralised mountains contained in
Its extent of over 390,000 square
miles. Tlie late Dr. Dawson dlstrl
butes these mountains, running northwest aud southeast, into four main
ranges, which are a continuation and
expansion of all the valuable mineral districts of the western United
States. Hritish Columbia extends for
800 miles Dortli and south from the
40th tu the (iOth parallel, with an
average width ot 400 miles east and
Minerals are distributed throughout
it- length and breadth, but the human
mind fails to grasp and realise the
Immense wealth lying dormant heie
for future development. Let us,
however, leave generalities and come
down to what lias already been accomplished by development, and see whnt
districts have been proven copper
bearing. We must not, however, forget the amount of native copper that
has actually been recovered with the
alluvial gold in the sluice boxes by
placer miners iu tlie Lillooet, Cariboo, Cassiar, and Omineea, districts,
without the mother source being hunt
ed for.
The chief districts being at present
worked are the Nelson, Rosbland,
Boundary, Osoyoos, Similkameen.
Aspen Drove, Kamloops, Howe
Sound, Texada Island, Mount Sicker,
and other parts of Vancouver Island,
Bennett, Atlin, nnd Teslin Lakes
districts. Districts proven copper
bearing, but not being actively developed are the Golden, along the Upper
Columbia River, the Laido-Duncan,
St. Mary's river, Shuswap Lake, the
Upper Kettle River,Ila/elton and others. These discoveries alone, without
the further opening up of the centre
and northeast of th<3 province, are
immense for a future copper supply.
Hritish Columbia does not claim to
have mnre phenomenally rich copper
deposits than othel parts, but rather
very large, wide, low grade auriferous
copper ores. She does, howevei, emphatically claim that her people are
miiiMig and smelting copper ores more
cheaply than any other part of the
world, with aurifeioua deposits, and
fin this score is a future factor in the
copper market that cannot be ignored. Let us go into this claim of
cheap mining and smelting and see
how facts bear out this contention.
We have all heard of the cheap mining of iron oies near Lake Superior.
There owners havo become million
aiies by selling iron ores for $1 a
ton f. o. b. This is done by square
set timbering; all the sticks are
centred, cut and tenoned of equal
size by machinery. When these sets
are levelled and started from a given
vertical line unskilled labor can pro*
duce them to any distance in any direction, and as level are connected
from one to another all sets correspond and uphold thc upper ones.
Chutes to aieliver the ores automatic
ally into hoppers around the main
shaft are put iu ; then roof blasting
(or caving) brings down hundreds of
tons at one blast into these chutes.
Copper deposits in Hritish Columbia
are so large that this system is already being practised in tho Boundary country. When one talks of large
deposits here one means that there
are wide pay streaks of rich ore,
and from these the values shade off
and lessen to the sides, having no
defined walls. This brings mining to
a question of how low a grade of uro
will it; pay to mine; tho lower the
grade, the wider tbe zone mined.
Water is almudant, so that a low
grado ore can be oruBbed aud passed
over Wiltlcy tables to bring tlio values
up to smelting standard.
Take a one per cent, copper ore
with gold values added. What if thc
loss of copper from concentration Ib
SO per lent, of tho copper contents'.'
Concentration still pays. One per
cent, of copper is SO pounds of copper1
per short ton of ore. Twenty per
cent, loss on this is four pounds of
cupper per ton, leaving IU pounds
recovered from otherwise valueless
The abundant water powers
throughout the province to generate
electrical power decrease the cost, of
horse power to drive all pumps,hoists,
compressors for drills, concentrators,
saw mills, etc., anl the prevalence of
onr forests makes timber very cheap.
These natural aids adapted by human Ingenuity aro what makes copper mining cheap in British Columbia.    Now about the smelting.
In tho Boundary ocuntry furnaces
built to smell 350 tons burden in
24 hours of average ores elsewhere
smelt 400 tons here, as tho composition of the ore is an ideal solf-lluxing
one, dispensing with all foreign profitless burden iu the   furnace as iluxcs
Highest Honors, World's Pair
Gold Medal, Midwinter Pair
Avoid linking Powders containing
alum.   They oro Injurious to health
outside tne coke. Pyritlc smelting
���I. e., with hot blast, using the sulphur contents of tbe ore as fuel, reduces tho consumption of coke from 13
per cent, per ton of ore to 5 per cent.
Also no preliminary heap, roasting
or calcining is required, enabling
the rich ores to be put into the furnace straight from the mine. The first
metal from this process is a 50 per
cent, copper matte. This matte is
tapped from the outer hearth of the
furnace, in a molten state,without reheating into Manhe converters.
In these converters, with the addition of a small amount of coke, the
first metal is blown up into blister
copper���all this in two smelting processes alone. From the converter the
molten copper is tapped into anode
moulds ready for final electrolytic
refining to separate the precious
This final refining is cheaper in
British Columbia than most parts,
since, as mentioned before, nature is
lavish here in her water power to generate the electricity required. We
have polysulphide ores to manufacture acid from oil the spot for these
To bear out all these data Rossland
has mineralised zones from 100 to 115
feet wide. Boundary has them to 300
feet; Howe Sound has immense ones.
What more can tho heart of a miner
desire? We have the ore deposits, timber, and water in abundance, cheap
smelting constituents, unlimited coa]
deposits for coke, examples betore our
eyes of skilled mining and smelting
management. What else is required?
Why,ample working capital to go and
do likewise with other deposits.
British Columbia produced for 1000
in lode gold 8.3,401,067; in copper,
91,115,380; in coal and coke, 85.OU0,-
889. By working capital invested
without st'nt, the multiplication of
this output annually cannot be pre
dieted. The Americans are buying up
mines and building smelters. Why
does not limit Britain take a hand
in this more than she has? Can you

Yesterday was the longest day of
ihe year.
The lake has been at a standstill for
the last three days, but is still about
17 feet above its normal height.
A number of Masonic delegates took
the opportunity while in town to secure a first class photograph of themselves. The Trail delegates were taken iu a group yesterday afternoon.
A qniet wedding took place at the
Klondyke hotel parlors on Wednesday
evening last when Rev. Dr. Wright
performed the marriage service f ir
Thomas Russell of Ferguson and Elizabeth Rradley of Moyie.
The brown fly which always appears
along the lake when trout are "ripe"
for fly fishing was noticed two days j
ago. They are now in swarms on the
banks aud over the water, and 6hould
presage some good baskets of tront
during tbe next few days.
At the urgent request of many
who listened to the children's service
in Emmanuel church, two weeks ago,
the exercises will be given again tomorrow night. The church has been
beautifully decorated and as the children have been steadily practising
this should piove a most Interesting
and helpful service It begins at 8
o'clock sharp.
The Bev. Dr. Wright will preach at
each service on Sunday at St. Paul's
church and in the evening will discourse on the "Dignity and Claims of
Labor." This is a continuation of
the subject on which he preached last
Sunday evening and is one of particular importance at the piesent unsettled condition of the relations between
capital and labor.
A C. P. R. circular has been received at the City ollice announcing that
navigation on the Upper Yukon has
opened. A daily service has been inaugurated between Whit:1 Boise and
Dawson. Through rates from Vancouver arc 8100 first class, (80 second.
This is the first time that tickets
have been sold through from interior
points to Dawson City.
On Thurday evening, as the hose
reel team were having their practise
on baker stieet iu front of Van-
stone's store, the four year old son of
Mr. Ualler, cook at the Tremout hotel, was run over. He was at once
pi'cacd up and taken into the drug
store where restoratives were applied.
He soon recovered and ten minutes af-
tairwiirds was running around as usual
aud was all right yesterday.
A handsome black and white retriever dog gave an exhibition of his
ability as a catcher yesterday afternoon at the corner of Waul and Victoria streets, liis owner would throw
a soft rubber ball to the tup of the
0,iera liouse front, where it. would rebound and fall. The dog each time
would spring high in the air to catch
it, and once out of t*iree would be
successful. When he failed to catch it
then he always secured it on tlie rebound. He would be a valuable addition to the lidding staff of tho local
, baseball team.
The Waragraph company presented
their moving pictures to a fair sijed
audience at tbe Opera House la~t
night. The comio pictures caused
much laughter, while those of thc
Queen's funeral and war scenes weie
received with great applause. The
female impersonator, introduced several clever specialties in the way of
6tep dancing, which will be repeated
at tonight's performance.
A large party of pedestrians on Baker
street were entertained last evening
with a dialogue that was wafted
gently from a window of The Tribune office. Two prominent local labor leaders waited on Mr. John Houston to tenionstrate with him on the
etror of his ways. The sulphuric
Houstonian language was what caused the commotion and attracted thc
crowd.    The   casualties   were   nil.
The other evening   the   three   year
o'd daughter of   Mine   Host    Ellis   of
the I.ardo hotel   fell   from a   floating
raft and the accident   was seen by   a
little   companion   of about   the   same
| age.    He raised the alarm and  Angus
j Heelon   came   to   the rescue, und succeeded iu   bringing the littie   one   to
i thc surface. She   had   been  fully   ten
minutes iD tbe water.    The latest re-
| ports are that the child is doing well.
The hose reel team of the City
Fire Department were out on Wednesday evening practising'for the Domin-
ioi Day poits, when the hose reel apparatus had the same experience as
Oliver Wendell Holmes' "one horse
shay," and went tc pieces. A search
party was formed to gather up the
fragments which were left. Yesterday the boys were busy fitting the
pieces together and expect to be on the
road again today.
The police had a tough case on their
hands last evening which gave them
some trouble. A new arrival of the
tough element stained into business by
trying to kick in a Chinaman's door
ou Hall street and raising a general
disturbance. His name is Bennett antl
he was taken in charge by Constable
tJeavener, and when arrested made a
break for liberty. Constable Pitchford
came to his assistance and the two finally succeeded in landing him in durance vile and he will be asked to give
an accountof his nilarity before the
magistrate this morning.
There were two cases ..fee tbe
police court yesterday morning. One
was of a well known character and
a frequent habitant befoie the magis
trate's "bench. His name is D. M.
Mahony, and he was arrested for
drunkenness and vagrancy. His case
was remanded until tbis morning but
as he is at large it is not expected that
he will appear unless it is at the
police court of some other town. The
other case was that of a Chinaman nam
ed Sing who laid a complaint against
one C. ll-'iidricks for assaulting him
the day before by dipping hiin in the
lake. The case was remanded umil
this morning when the accused will
be made to appear to give an account
of his conduct.

Been Over the Hoad HimsOf.
When a doctor, who has been the
victim of the coffeo habit, cures himself by leaving off Coil'ee and taking
Postum Food Coffee, he knows so nettling about wbat ho is advising in
that line.
A good old doctor In Columbus,
Ohio, who had at one lime been thc
victim of the eolIVc habit, advised
Mrs. Carrie Moran. ill'.' N. nth St.,
Columbus, 0., to leave otf coil'ee and
take on Postum Food Coffee,
She suffered from indigestion and a
weak and irregular heait and general
nervous condition.    She   thought that
it would be difficult  to stop coffee
abruptly. She says, "1 had consider
able hesitancy about making the
change, one reason being] that a
friend of mini1 tried I'osliiin and did
not like it. Tlie dojtor, however,
gave explicit directions thnt I'ostum
must be boiled long enough to bring
out the flavor and food value.
His suggestions were carried out
and the delicious beverage fascinated
me, so that I hastened tu Inform my
friend who had rejected Postum. Hy
the way she is now using It regularly
after she found thai it could lie made
to taste as nice as it .oes.
I observed, a short lime aflcr using
Postum, a decided change in my nor
vous system, I could sleep as soundly.
and ray brain was more active. My
complexion became clear and rosy,
whereas, it had been muddy and spotted before, in fact all the abnormal
symptoiuH disappeared and I am now
feeling perfectly well.
Mrs. David McDonald, a friend, was
troubled much as 1. and she lias recovered from her heart and stomach
trouble by leaving off eull'ce and us-
Inif PoMtuin Food Coffee.
I know of several others who havo
had much the same experience. It is
only necessary that the Postum lie
well boiled and it wins itsown way.'���
