Hall Mines to Mortgage.
The directors of the Hall Mines,
Limited, have decided to issue first
mortgage debentures to the extent of
��50,000 (3250,000) bearing interest at
the rate of 6 per cent. This is felt to
be necessary in order to carry out a
policy suggested to the company by
John E. Hardman. President of the
Canadian Mining Institute, who has
made a special report on the property. The debentures are to be secured by a mortgage upon the company's property and are to be paid
off at 105 not later than 10 years

Kaslo has a hot municipal campaign on.   Dr. Hartin and Lawyer
McAnn are tho candidates, and each
is accused by the exponents of the
other of pilfering tbe public funds.
Hartin, who is a member of the present council, is said to have put up a
Tammany deal in connection with
the city hall.   McAnn, who Is mayor
and city solicitor, is accused of the
grossest kind of duplicity In conniving in the movement to vote himself
1600 as a yearly allowance. For real
ugliness and meanness the methods
of the rival factions In the Kaslo contest would not be out of place with a
band of Filipino patriots.

The Lead   Ore  Question ia Being
Meddled With.
As will be remembered bv the
Sandon mine owners, the Kaslo
Board of Trade has done some very
effective work in bringing the question of leid tariff before the inter
national conference at Quebec
Up to date' the Slocan mine owners
have beeu rather lax with regard to
this most important question and did
not take up Uie case with Hie vim
warranted. It appears now as though
the parties interested in the C. P. R.
smelter and the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co. had stolen a march on the
stiver-lead miners and are quietly
using every* influence in their power
to block any movement looking to
ward the lowering of the U. S. duties
on lead ores.
Hearing that a gentleman who had
taken an active part in the proceedings of the Kaslo Board ot Trade was
in town a representative of tbe Pat-
strrak hunted him up to enquire
as to tbe latest developments.   He
"The understanding now is that
the Conference will reassemble on
January 5th and that the session will
be short and final. Until lately I
am confident that lead in ore has
stood as one of the articles likely to
be made free. At present I am not
so certain that this is the case.
"During the recent excursion over
tbe Crow's Nest Pass Railway, an J
since I bave met a number of gentlemen, resident of Nelson, Rossland
and Trail who are beginning to take
a keen interest in tbe outcome of the
"To these gentlemen tlie prospect
of an arrangement whereby lead
ores will go tree or on any terms
more favorable than at present, Into
tbe United Scares, is regarded with
great disfavor.
"Vou are aware that in the early
stages of the movement we have been
making f<4* tariff eonce**sksns in favor
of lead products we have had practically the solid support of all the
mining camps.
"'Mr. J. B. Me Arthur who appeared before the conference while it was
sitting in Quebec, was instructed by
our Board of Trade to ask fjr free
trade in h-ad to the largest extent.
These instructions were endorsed by
memorals from the miners snd
business men of Sandon and Ainsworth and by the West Kootenay
Mine Owners Association. The Provincial Government rf E C. also
forwarded the same to the Canadian
"The ground thst the Kaslo Board
ot Trade has taken is that a better
price to tbe miner for his lead is the
first consideration.
"It is true that a few high grade
mines of tbe Slocan camp, the Payne,
the Last Chance, tbe Reco, the
Whitewater and a few others can
continue to ship ore under circumstances more onerous thsn tbe present. But where there is one snch
mine there are a dozen others barely
able to make ends meet, and a multitude in all stages of development
that are idle, and can not sun aatil
their product cau be marketed to
bettor advantage.
"These facta are so evident that
their first representation secured
unanimous support for the concluaions
thst we based upon them, and so far
as the silver lead ore producing dis
tricts sre concerned   there Is   no
change uf views.
'The Mining Divisions of Ainsworth, Slocan, Slocan City. Trout
Lake, Illrciliwaet, Moves and Fort
Steele will regard the total removal
of, or a substantial reduction in, the
dutv upon lead in ore, aa a concern
ion that will give a sharp Impetus to
the industry upon which they are
directly dependent, and that without
injury to any established business.
'The opposition which has developed to this proposition comes from
those who directly or indirectly are
interested in the establishment of
smelting works in E C.
"The Canadian Pacific Railway
Co., which ia preparing to treat ore
on a large scale at Trail, and which
is rapidly bringing the various branches of its system into connection
with that point; The Hall Mines,
which has a lead stack only otscasion-
Iv in operation at Nelson; Tbe
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., which
invested largely for the production
of coke, and the citizens of Nelson,
Trail, and to some extent Rossland,
who would profit from tbeir contigu
ity to tbe smelting plants, are the
parties whin, through their organs,
and, I have reason to believe, by
direct communication with the Canadian government, are Itringing
pressure to bear to have any concern
ion in favor of lead products refused
unless the same will enure to the
benefit of a pnasible smelting indus
try, and not to tbe ore producer.
"Indeed, from, the exprrsatons
found in the Kossland aud Nelson
papers, I gather that there is a dis
pusitkm to pat farther restrictions
upon the shipment of ore by way of
an export duty.
"The establishment of sny indus-
trv in Canada is desirable in the estimation of all ot us. I shall favor
any poliey calculated to promote the
treatment of our ore at home, short
of one that would throw additional
burdens npon the producer of the
raw material.
"Propositions calculated to have
that effect are so obviously selfish
and unjust that in tire interests of
our owu country and of the surrounding mining camp* oar board of trade
must strenmaisly oppose them.
"If thereb now a production of
ore, the treatment aud transportation
of which offers opportunities for
profits, the miner is lire man whose
enterprise and labor lias brought it to
"In South Kootenay we ha%*e been
looking forward to direct connect km
with Canadian railways and to the
advent of Canadian capital into the
country as wt-nta highly desirable
and to be warmly welcomed.
"Now that these events are accomplished facts are we to be losers
by them? Has the Canadian Pacific
Railway Ot., the Crow's Nest Coal
Co., or sny other corporation or in
dividual, because they have made
investments in this country, the
right to ask that we should be debarred from advantageous market*
and be forced to turn our products
into channels where it will be tributary to them ?
"1 bave confidence that in any
contest of this kind we have the sap-
port of the Dominion administration,
and that a policy of artificial restriction and arbitrary interference wiib
an established industry will not com
mend itself to iheir favor.
"But I think that at this particular
time all of our local papers, our
business and representative men. and
our mine owners who have so much
directly st stake, should be hard at
work to counteract the Injurious*
effect of the adverse influences that
are being used against us, and In
event of rarther adjournment of the
international conference are must be
prepared for a fight to the finish before the Canadian commissioners,
and probably before the parliament
uf Canada.

One cannot but feel hopeful for
brighter and better days thiraghout
tbe ailver camps by reason of tbe
marked interest being sbovmintbe
coontry by foreign capitalists, whose
emissaries and agents are quietly
and slowly, bat nevertheless sorely,
investigating and securing control of
the best properties. Those who have
a penchant for eoinoidences state that
every decade ending with the figure
nine witnesses some great mining
excitement, and tha evidences are
forthcoming that 1899 will be no ex
ception to the rale. Moreover, facts
multiply to a certainty that it ia
British Colombia that will be tbe seat
of the next big upheaval. It so happens that Australia is laboring under
a weighty depression, caused by
over-capitalisation, non-occnrrlng
dividends, and lack of confidence.
This has obtained for the past
eighteen months. In Sooth Africa,
Own Psnl ia as seatone aa ever In his
efforts to cripple tbe mineral development of the Transvaal because of the
obnoxious Cltlander. Other foreign
fields of investment present local
troubles peculiar to themselves, mod
all calulated to alarm tbe investing
public in Europe. So that, after a
careful survey J the situation, the
impression amounts almost to a reality
that British Columbia must and does
afford the desired opening for profit-
bearing and dividend-paying invest
Europe to peculiar, in that it Is tbe
chief scene for the mobilization of tbe
forces of capital, and there is no por
tkm ot that continent that sways so
mighty a power in tbe world's fin
anoes as does that right little, tight
little Island home of the
British Columbia and Hs
have taken a tremendous hold upon
tbe British public, snd leas difficulty
Is experienced now m floating a bona
fide mining venture than waa experienced some months since. Perhapa
tbe marvelous success of the British
American Corporation, LondotidbR
C. OoldfleWs, White water Mines, and
a number of other worthy concerns
have had mueb to do with this. Thb
columns of tbe financial Journals, the
great dallies, and the influential
weekly organs teem with laudatory
articles upon this favored Province,
and the result is essy to conjecture.
Money Is reported plentiful In London, Paris and Berlin, and renewed
enquiries are being made for British
Colombia stocks. i
While tbe great copper and goldj
deposits of Bos_tand and the* Boundary, though low grade and costly to
develop, do maintain -their ascend
ancy in the money marts at present,
there Is no denying that the silver-
bearing - ledges of the Slocan are
claiming an Increasing amount of
favorable attention. It is noticeable
that many of the leading properties
are now In the hands of Britishers,
I such as the Whitewater, Slocan Boy,
Ruth,  Idaho,  Queen   Bess,  Bosun,

the   Kee ef
Wakefield, Comstock, Vancouver,
Emily Edith, and several others, and
these are developing to tbe satisfaction of their owners, No costly machinery is required in the Slocan, and
the considerably higher grade ores
can be handled much more cheaply
by means of the less expensive and
popular tunnel. Tire enormous dlvld*
ends paid by tbe Payne, f-gocan Star,
Whitewater, Ruth, Bosun, etc- etc*
are having the desired effect, aad it
is morally certain the influx of capital
thia next season will be great
Several large deals are even now on
the tapis, snd once the ball gets rolling it will not cease for many years.
Wet ores and dry ores, so long as
they embrace tbe factor for paying
dividends, are alike agreeable ts the
capitalist, and the Slocan haa enough
of each to make it the banner district
of the Province.

The London Outlook, in its Anandal
article, says:
Those who are chary of superlatives
tell as that British Colunbia Is on the
eve of big things. .We have heard that
prediction before, and we have seen It
followed by a season of persistent flat-
nets. Not that the mineral wealth of
the Province has ever been la doubt,but
rather that the moment of a worldwide
awakening to its realities has always
been Inferred by some cause or other.
What, then is the new feature Iu the
British Colombia outlook* The accession of the famous Le -sol mine to tbe
London market.
The paper then goes ou to deal with
the events that leu up to the securing
of the minority shares of the Le Roi
Company by the British America Corporation, and adds:
Let the Le Roi get its proper footing
in the minds of the investing public
here and the district generally wUI
come into Its own. One thing, however, the Le Roi proprietors should da.
The dividends which have been paid
have, we doubt not. been fully justified,
bat in conservative hands and with a
view to tbe future the mine should be
shutdown for six
But Rssslani Is, as a study ol sny
British Columbia saining man will show,
only one corner of a rich auriferous lb ii
ish province. Rossland Is easiest of
arenas and comes first t the rest will fob
row If British Columbians and their
friends here do not spoil their future
hy making toe great haste to be rich.
In addition to ths mines *�� the immediate neighborhood of IWUn.l.
there are same ��0or 70 miles to the west
with Immense deposits of low grade ore
and copper In what is known as the
Boundary country. There is a great
future before that region also. As it is,

Smelters   Want   Better   Kates.
A party of smelter men who operate
tn this section have pone to St. Paul for
a conference with Darius Miller, second
vice president aud general traffic manager of the Great Northern Railway.
What the conference is about is a
mystery. Among those who have gone
from here are Manager Aldrich, of the
Trail smelter; David Moore, ore buyer
of the same concern: J. E Jackson, ore
buyer for the Everett smelter. The
exodus of the smelter men to St Paul
followed a series of meetings that have
bees held in Spokane among themselves. Gne explanation given of the
meetinirs aud trip is that the smelter
men are arranging the matter of division of territorv and that of transportation rates for the year to come, contracts
being made on the first of each year.
It is also Asserted by knowing ones that
Ihe railroads have recently made some
Inequalities In rater- which seriously
affect the smelters and make s division
of business upon an equitable basis
extremely difficult. It is said that the
sinelter men have gone to St Paul to
lav the facts in the case before the
powers rhat be. and to urge that matter- l>e arranged more to the advantage
of their respective smelting corpora-

Mrs. C. Henshawe, of Vancouver, the

known in literary circles ss Julian Durham, thus describes a trip made by her
from Nelson to Sandon over the K. k
8. Railway:
The trip down Kootenay lake from
Nelson to Kaslo is superb, such a
change of scenery after the rugged,
ragged loftiness of the Arrow lake surroundings, tor here tbe conifers give
place to the alder, the birch, and the
hemlock, and gently sloping banks,
email villages nestling on level
stretches of grass-grown fields, and the

forthcoming, snd all tbe information 1
could gather respecting the history of
the building wss thst sn elderly maiden
lady in England bad bequeathed tbe
money for its erection. What the ulterior motive of this worthy old dame's
generosity in so doing may hsve been,
who can tell, but doubtless the inhabit*
ants of the one house snd the two stores
profit by tbe unusual luxury of hsvimr a
private chapel! *

it worked sil right.

enchanting scenery imaginable, or ibat

to appear more thickly timbered all the
way up to their summits, whilst in the
valleys the obeisance of tbe rich hunch
grass to each subtle breese disclose* half-
hidden amongst the roots the unturned
faces of flowers upon whose petals still
lies the kisses of morning dew. When
you enter farther into the woodlands,
enveloped st dswn in s luminous haw,
it is to find tbe ground necked intermittently with patches of bright-hued
blossoms snd flowering shrubs, forming
a color scene thst st once cstcbes the
eye by reason of its strong contrast to
the grey-green aspect so prevalent in
other parts of Kootenay, where flowers
sre more rare, though scarcely Urea exquisite in the lew localities thst give
them birth.

aconites; which in their turn sre replaced in June by summer's rosier flowers,

the gamut from palest pink to dark
magenta. And then August, what lovely mauve tints follow fast upon the
heels of the glow of tbe hot sun���

approach of winter, it is tbe end of tbe
flower queen's reign.
With unswerving devotion the railway line follows the course of the river
for some distance sfter leaving Ksslo,
now mounting up high upon the hillsides sbove tbe foaming torrent tbst
swirls along in its narrow, rocky bed
now dropping to tbe bottom of tbe dense
ravine, until Whitewater is past and a
wilder panorama opens up. Then tbe
track commences to rise rapidly over a
3>* per cent, grade and tbe crags over-
hang the line, whilst round tbe verge of
disxy heights the little narrow-gauge
creeps and curls, here over trestles that
span the gullies, there pest gigantic
boulders that jut out over the stream
dsshing slong hundreds of feet below.
