The Lyceum Compana, which
played three nights this week at
Spencer's, are probably the first com*
pany to present legitimate drama in
Sandon and to ask patronage solely
on the merits of the work produced.
After the seige of fake artists and
secondhand Spokane vaudeville to
which the Slocan has been treated
for many moons, the appearance of
a company such as the Lyceum,
whose members are gentlemen and
ladies of education and culture, is
The Lvceura company played three
nights: Monday in the farce comedy
entitled "All the Comforts of a
Home" which was well received by a
large audience; Tuesday, "Under
Two Flags." also to a good audience,
and on Wednesday evening their
strongest cast, "The Merchant of
Venice," to another thoroughly
appreciative audience. This company's work in Shakespeare's great
comedy is ttositively good. The cos
tumes are the b-it ever seen in the
city and the whole effect displays an
ability seldom seen so far from the
main arteries of travel. Ed*��uard
D'Oize as Shy lock is an artist whom
noc-inpanv should be ashamed to
own. While Shakespeare, or rattier
the lack ot ability in Shakespearean
artists is never more than half popu
lar in mining camps, it is sate to say
that the Lyceum Company, **hould
they return this way, can play his
classic works to a house packed from
the fuotli.ht* to the sidewalk.
At their meeting this evening the
Min Ts' Union will adopt the follow

Cnit.mr-rf.mrnt mt tht Trouble,
A despatch from Wardner, Idaho, under plate of April 21, gave the following
account of the trouble leading up to the
del t ruction of the Bunker Hill property
by the desperate union men: "For aome
time there hsve been rumoraof probable
trouble between the management snd
miners of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan.
The reports have gone ao fsr as to fltste
thst a walkout was imminent, snd only
s week ago a rumor that 200 men had
wsiked out was generally credited in sli
the other towns in the country for s few
hours, until telephone inquiries had
resulted in assuring them thst the story
wss not true.
Ths Miners' Union here hss always
claimed to have s Urge percentsgeof the
man ?m ployed by that company enrolled
among its membership, and now it esy*
tbst it i* receiving heavy editions st
every meeting.
Tuesdsy morning notices were posted
inviting sil men working for tbe companies here, who were not member* of
tbe Union to join it immediately. Thi*
haa atsited talk again to each an extent
that notice of it haa been taken by the
local press, which haa generally done
everything possible to restrain an approach of feeling calculated to produce
Among union men no secret is msde of
the intention of tbe union to demend
higher wages snd s recognition of the
union by the management. The public
haa been given no intimation directly
by the management as to the probable
course of the compsny, although in an
indirect way it has been stated tlist there
would be no serious objection to giving
the union wsge scale, snd thst it would
be granted if the request wss made in a
propsr spirit. It is doubted, however, if
under any conditions an agreement to
iscogniae the union could be secured.
There is sn old fight between the union
snd the Bunker Hill snd Sullivan, with
considerable bitterness on both sides, so
thst it would be hard for them to come
to sn understanding unless the negotiations were conducted by {parties entirely
disinterested in the matter.
After Uie strike of 1W2 tlie Bunker Hill
and Sullivan wss closed down for a long
time, and when it finally re-opened it
waa after the circulation of a petition
numerously signed that the compsny
would resume work st the wage rare
they hsve since been paying, with sn
agreement to do better when conditions
would admit of it. The agreement was
made between the company snd the men
ihal the wages would be 12.50 snd |3
until prices advanced to where 100
pounds of lead ami two ounces of silver
would bo worth p*. So fsr there haa
beeu no violation of this agreement by
Uie men, and the company bss hsd no
opportunity to do so, ss the price bsa not
risen to thst point. Frienda of the management, however, sdmit thst should
thia condition arise the company would
decline to itilHU ita promises on tbe
ground that tlie men then in its employ
were not the men with whom the agreement wa* made, and that they were not
entitled to the benefits of it.
At tbe time that agreement was made
the public, even in the Co?ur d'Alenes.
believed Unit the wages offered snd
accepted were as good ss could lie paid.
but tbey now think difterently, for since
that rim**, il is argued, lead has been as
low as |2..*j0, snd was only $2.��0 for a
long time, and vet sil the leading mines
in tbe camp |��aid dividends regularly.

As between upraising and wiming
between levels in metal mines, the
former is the cheaper method, says the
Mining and Scientific Press. Gravity
assists In the removal and Masting of
the ore Two men will upraise from 4
to ft feet lu hard rock in a single shift
in a hole ixl feet. The work is much
easier on on the men. as they have tin
ore to shovel, while in the Bromtwe
men with Uie aid of the two men at the
windlsss, will only sink from '2 to 2J
feet in a shift in fair rock     I be serious
objection to overhand work ia the great
danger from falling rock and the liability to guard against it.   These upraises
or  winzes serve several purposes of
ventilation, sub-division of the vein,
and, when mining operations are begun,  the upraise   ia   timbered   and
becomes a chute for the delivery of the
ore.   In the overhand method of working out a vein, after the levels have
keen driven and the vein blocked out
by the upraises into blocks of 150 feet
in length and the width of the vein,
then the workable blocks of vein matter
are stoned from the upraise both ways
for r distance of 75 feet.   The miners
begin at the upraise and break away a
slice as wide as the vein and 6 or 7 feet
high.   The ore is then picked over and
delivered at the level below.   After a
slice has been removed, the mill hole is
timbered tbe height of the slice retnov-
with close laid round logs of about 6
inches in diameter.   One slice after another is removed until the upper level
is reached and the block is exhausted,
ft is not uncomntoh in tbe working ol
veins Which are entirely pay dirt to
allow tbe broken ore to 'gather in the
waste space to such' convenient height
ss will give tbe miners a footing.   The
excess is removed, and the accumulation is removed as soon ss the stope
is exhausted.   Tbe ore which accumulates in the chute is drawn off as rapidlv
as  circumstances will   permit.    The
chute is never emptied, but is relieved
only of excess.   This plsn prevents the
rolling of the ore down the chute, and
so prevents sn excessive pulverisation
of tbe ore.   As rich ore ia usually brittle, the loss induced by such pulverization would be great.

*o sue eataoiisnment of a mint in I not exhaust the number of things re-
Canada was made by an eastern l(la*r<>d in the mint, tor $200 was ex-
paper.   The journal referred to con 11���?1 In _���_*���_ &_#!? *** I500
paper. Tbe journal referred to con
tended that a mint would be a losing
proposition, that now it was not costing the Canadian Government any
thing to have coined the few paltry <lf tnree kinds-charcoal at an ex
half dollars and quarters that the J?^���*3^ ?k* al an expen*i
half dollars and quarters that the
country is sprinkled with, and if a
mint were established it would mean
a heavy appropriation to start with
for buildings, etc., and additional
expenditure year after year.
Argument of this character is not of
sufficient weight to entitle it to consideration.   But in answer to it, we
produce below an article on the earn
ings A tbe United States mints, showing conclusively that, aside from the
inestimable advantage a Canadian
mint would be in placing this country
In its proper light before the nations
of the world, it would,  in a double
sense, be a money making institution.
The article reads :
It is supposed generally that the
United States Mint and the government assay offices and refineries are
maintained for the public convenience and that the mink like other
branches or departments of the exten
sive Treasury service,   is run pro
bono publico, the government making np by appropriations the shortage of each year.   The recent public
report of the director of the mint
shows that Uncle Sam has a thrifty
interest in the operations ot the mint
and its branches and makes a tidy
profit from their operation eacn year.
Last year the gross earnings of the
mints and assay offices of the country
���there are mints in Philadelphia.
San Francisco, Carson City and New
Orleans,   assay offices at   Denver,
Boise, Helena,  Charlotte, St. Louis,
Dead wood and  New York���where
$4,495,000,   of which $173. bT4 was
for parting and   refining bullion,
$10,046 for copper alloy, and $15,311
formeltieg, assaying and stamping
charges.    The seigniorage on the
coinage of sil ver was $3,073,958, on
subsidiary silver coinage $286,311, on
minor coinage $1,031,000 and on the
recoinage of minor coins $18,383.
The value of the deposit in melting
room grains and "sweeps" removed
was $8726; the value or the surplus
bullion returned was $53,024, and
the gain on bullion shipped by the
minor assay offices to the mint for
coinage there was 16,665.
The expenditure of tbe mint service, including wastage, loss on sale
of sweeps, and expense of distributing minor coins, was $1,263.183. Tbe
net earnings for tbe year were $3,-
432,664. Some of the Items of expense (the chief of which is of c urse
salaries and wsges) illustrate the curiously complicated work of minting,
. which requires not only knowledge
of chemistry and metallurgy, but
considerable exactness in the use of
E-ssw-vrve an luitivn i. 4'*t T***V \��(l IVV a <f*
r salt used in the refineries, and a
small charge tor flags needed for designs Apart from gas, the fuel
n��seded for mint and assay offices was
of three kinds- charcoal at an ex
of $7,500, and coal at an expense of
$17,000. One item, which to the un
initiated seems large, is the item of
sewing, ��3,425. This sewing is required fer the bags containing the
metal or coins, in addition to $.V��3 for
barrels and $350 for bullion boxes
Uncle Sam in his liberality made
no appropriation  for soap, it would
appear, but the expense of laundering
the towels (presumably 'It was given
out") was $3,000, and  $2,200 additional for water.   The item of wast
age, so called, arising from work at
the mink and which la not a
one compared  with  the enormous
operations ot the mini, was $16,000.
and some other minor items brought
np the government's whole expense
in tho year to $1,250,000, or about 25
per cent, of the total receipts, the
profit being represented by the other
75 per cent.	
The Bankers' Association of Canada
met in solemn conclave last week in
Montreal, and resolved that the
council would not approve ot the proposal t�� establish a Canadian mint
for the coinage of Canadian coins.
Their reasons for doing so are given
below. They are too simple to re
quire comment:
'1. Because the operating of a mint
will result in loss either to the miner
or to the government, according as
tbe one or the other Is made to bear
the expense of the coinage
2. Because a better market for gold
bullion is provided by the banks
than can be supplied by a mint.
3. Because the intrinsic valae of
the metal is not enhanced by its con*
version into coin, bullion being preferable for the purpose <pf interns tion
al exchange and settlement
4. Because experience has demon
strated that paper is preferred to gold
coin as a circulating medium, and
bullion minted in Canada will not be
retained in .he country.
5. Because  the
Dawson City, March 15.~-To*day has
brought us the first hint of spring. Only
a hint, conveyed to us, ws hardly know
how. by a tone in the cloud hints, a
soilness in the air, s promise in the
sun-warmth, but it has touched each and

The long-delayed official announce-
merit of the sale of the Enterpriiie mine,
on Ten Mile creek was made on Saturday, when Mr. George Aylard received
word from Nelson stating that the whole
matter had been settled and the money
paid over. The purchase price has not
been officially announced. The proper-
tv will be placed in tbe new company'*
hands this week, and it is doubtless the
intention of the buyers to put a large
fores of men to work at once with a
view to making the Enterprise an immediate and lasting dividend payer. It
wss stated by Mr. Kendall, the engineer who reported on the property for
the purchasers, that tbe mine ought to
work ISO men.
W 0. E. Koch haa taken his spare
teams to his Ten Mile stables and will
prepare for immediate action. While
nothing; can be definitely stated in regard to the transfer of other properties
around the Enterprise, yet indications
point to several probable transfers that

A Monopoly Oraotod.
A bombshell was hurled at the promoters of the Pacific cable scheme, in
the Ottawa senate ou Friday night. A
private agreement, made away hack in
ivm, between Great Britain snd the
hastem Extension Cable Com pany. was
brought down. It showed that Lord
Rtpon, on October 28, l��nit, signed an
agreement, granting *i mnno|Poly to the
Eastern Extension Cable Company, and
binding (treat Britain neither tp�� fay, or
to attaint anyone to lay and not to permit anyone else in lay s cabin to Hong
Kong or Singapore* A clause of the
agreement al*o specific* thai, if a cable
was not laid between Canada nnd Australia in five vears from the dates the.
agreement, then it would he deprived
of any connections with Ilnng Kong or
Singapore. The five vears have of
course expired, and the monopoly has
become permnnent.ttnlo** Great Britain
buys it out There is a provision in the
private agreement that permits England to buy it out for ��800,000, sfter a
year'* notice haa been given.
In the senate, Fridav night. Sir Mac-
kenaia IWiwell, on behalf of the opposition, and Hon Mr. Scott, for the gov-
ernment, talked strongly against thin
agreement, which has just been unearthed, and of its whereabouts all this
time nobody seems to have been in the
least aware.	
Don't Expert too Much.
T. G. Blackstock and George Good-
srham of Toronto have just returned
from a trip to England. Discussing tbe
question of British capital coming for
investment in Canadian mining enter-
Krises, Mr. Blackstock ssys there will
e plenty of it. The feeling is good towards Canada and the improvement in
Grand Trunk and Canadian Pacific
stocks has strengthened it. But oue
point which should be impressed is,that
Canadians are holding their properties
at much too high a figure to enable old
country investors to take hold of them.
This refers particularly to partly developed m.ning properties. Mr. Blackstock
bids Canadians, however, not to expect
anv such outpouring of unlimited capital into Canada as occurred in the case
of South Africa and Australia. There
will rather, lie a steady development,
which wilt be better. This would indicate that Mr Blackstock snd Mr. Good-
erham did not find in England anyone
too anxious to buy War Eagle and
Centre Star shares at their present
prices.      _ 	
Reduction aad Keflnlng Works.
A Montreal despatch says that a syndicate of Canadian and American cap.
italists is prepared to erect extensive
refining and reduction worksin Canada
provided that the government will
make concession* so that they may be
able to obtain the uecessarv fuel at a
figure which will correspond somewhat
to tbe prices paid for coal in tbe United
States. Among those interested in the
project sre .lames It. Wilson, of Montreal, prominently known in the metal
trade; E Goff Penny, M P.;C C Colby
of Man-dead. Quebec; It. G. Leckie, of
Sudbury. Ontario; J J Thompson, of

Mountain Chief Bond.
Tho company which has secured the
bond on ths Mountain Chief group is Ihe
Manchester Smelting Company, whose
representative in this country is A. R.
Brown, of Kaslo.   This concern makes s
specialty of reducing xinc ores, hence its
purchase of the Lucky Jim mine, near
Bear lake, some time since, snd now
more lately the Mountain Chief.   Both
properties carry a high percentage of
zinc in their ore, which hss acted mors
or less as a deterrent to shipments in the
psst.   In the treatment of the ore, the
company have faith in a profitable business being worked up with the Slocan
camps, many mines and  prospects in
which carry s certain amount of sine.
The success of the English  concern's
venture will plsce the Slocan on a more
profitable basis for the investment of
capital, as in tbe psst American smelters
hsve held the ores of thia camp liable
for penalty because of the sine.   To ae-
cute returns from reduction works for
thia mineral will sdd to tlie net piofitsof
the exports from ths mines, snd less
waste will be incurred on tbe sorting
dumps.   The Chief will commence oper
stions shortly.
Silver Advancing In Prlee.
The advances which have been made
in the price of silver since the first of
April will give the Hall Mines.Limited,
sn appreciable gain on the galena ores
which  it  has  purchased  during tbe
month. Assuming that the ore averaged 60 ounces to tbe ton, which will
probably be below the* mark, the advance in the market quotations for silver will give the Hall Mines a profit of
something over 9180 to the ton. When
s furnace is treating 50 tons of such ore
per day the seemingly smsll advance
soon runs into money. The present
outlook is for an advancing market,
due it is said to the action of the smelter
trust iu keeping the supply of silver
level with the demand ���Tribune.

The Toronto Globe says:   "We are
assured the Kettle River railway bill
will not be abandoned, but it seemed
better to leave it over for another session, when Mr. Corbin will have time
to attend to the matter, than go ahead
with it in hia absence. It is expected
the bill will come up next session, and
it is the confideut belief of its promoters
that the f<t*linjr in favor of the measure
will then be stronger even than it is at
Forswear intimacies and you will never
have any quarrels.

the United States market. This can
easily be done by simply allowing the
pisr lead resulting from the refining; in
bond in the United States of Canadian
bullion, back into Canada, free of the
Canadian duty of 15 per cent. It is
true, the Canadian market is small,
there being bat 8.000 tons of pig lead
consumed annually, but the Slocan
miner of lead ores, and the Canadian
smelter, should have the benefit of their
own small Canadian market rather than
be forced to ship the pig lead to England, back to Canada, and then pav 15
per cent, duty, less 25 per cent, porter-
eutiai, upon his own lead, which actually origin-ted in Canada
'^be. largest use for lead is in connection with tbe manufacture of dry
white lead, red and orange, and litharge. The duties upon the above range
from nothing to five per ceut, and they
are consequently al* imported and
amount to 6.500 tons per year. Ail the
above would and could be manufactured in Eastern Canada were duties made
about as follow^ Dr\ White lead, raised from 5 per cenr, to 20 per cent; white
lead, ground in oil, raised from 45 per
cent, to 80 per ceut.; red lead raised
from 5 per cent, to 20 per cent; litharge, raised from free to 20 per cent.
"The above duties are fair and consistent assuming the 15 per cent duty
to remain on pig lead, as it should, excepting that it should ant be charged
on pig lead corning from Canadian bullion. But with the above charge there
would be a demand for 10,000 tons ot
Canadian pig lead per year the miner
of the Slocan would receive more for
mining their ore, and ore would be
mined and smelted in Canada, which
can not profitably be handled to dav ��� a
refinery would soon follow; white lead
works, red lead and litharge works
would and could be profitably establish-
ed in eastern Canada, and also the lead
smelting problem, so called, would He
solved without bounty, export dntv, or
any of the foolish law's which have been
su/rgested Practically all the British
Columbia lead ores would be smelted
and refined in British Columbia, and
the resulting pi* lead would he sold in
eastern Canada, to be manufactured into
lead pipe, white lead, litharge, etc.,
while the surplus would find a good
market in China and Japan.

While reciprocity in this matter would
be of great assistance to the mine*1 in

Sia,���Your correspondents, Messrs.
Hestley and Company, in a recent Issue

"There is at present a duty of 15 per
cent, on pig lead from the United
States, and 15 per cent., less a differential of 25 per cent, on pig iron lead
from England. Most of the pig lead
consumed in Canada, therefore, comes
from England, and a Canadian smelter
is forced to sell its lead In England,
and probably exactly the same lead is
shipped back intoCanada. This makes
lea'*-smelting in Canada very difficult,
and no amount of encouragement by
the Government in the fonn of bounties
can remedy this difficulty.
"It is evident that a Canadian smelter or producer should receive the Government's support in the matter of
giving him the benefit of the Canadian
market, whleh is higher than the English market, but not quite so high as
The two smelters now in the market
for lead ores in this Province have no
refinery, nor is there an institution of
the kind in Canada. Thus they are
compelled to dispose ot their unrefined
pig lead either in the United States or
in Europe. While the tariff of the
former country imposes a duty of 1)
cents per lb. on lend in ore, the dutv is
no less than 2ft cents per lb. on lead in
to the States, they are fined | cents per
lb. on the lead they have smelted. This
is enough to counteract the difference
in freight rates
As a matter of fact, one at least of the
two local smelters, is, I believe, dispos
ing of  its unrefined   bullion  In  the
world's market, where ths price of lead

will be applied to the operation of all
(trains opon the system. As an illustration of its workings it may be said
that, in a given case, light engines
can be moved one hundred and ten
miles by two telegraphic orders,
whereas by the system at present
used it takes eighteen telegraphic
orders to accomplish this purpose.
In the case; of meeting or passing
trains there is a double order, to the
conductors and engineers, identical
in terms, making mistakes impossible, besides, precise rules with respect to trains that have the right of
way. It is said by those who have
been giving their attention to the
code for eighteen years thst It Is simplicity itself and can be mastured by
