Hits the C. P. R.
The war  taxes  imposed  by  the
United States will hit the Canadian
carrying companies, and Mr. G. M.
Bjswjrth, freight traffic manager of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, has
sent to the station agents of the company in the United States a circular
showing where the measure applies.
The war revenue act requires rail-
Way companies to issue to the shipper
a bill ot lading as receipt  for  each
shipment.   To each of which and to
each duplicate an internal  revenue
stamp of one cent must be affixed for
goods shipped to  points   in   United
States, and a similar  stamp of ten
cents fur goods shipped to any foreign port (including Canada), or on
a through bill of lading al a through
rate.   The  act  requires  also  that
checks on banks or other depositories
must bear a  two-cent stamp; a ten-
cent stamp must be fixed to certificates or affidavits presented by any
shipper or consignee  iu regard  to
damage  to freight, ovc-charge in
rate or weight, or for other purp'fse-*;
a 25-cent stamp   must be placet! on
all powers of attorney, and all ware
house receipts for any goods, merchandize, or property of any kind held
on storage in any public or private
warehouse or yard;  and a 80-cent
stamp must accompany all  bonds tit
indemnity.   The 0.   P.   K. station
agents are instructed to see that the
company's interests are not prejudiced by any failure to observe the new
regulations.   On thi** continent  the
United States has a long arm, but it
is not probable that any considerable
proportion of Canadians will seriously object to the payment of that very
small part of th" repubJIe'tj war rev*
enues to which they will lie rendered
liable   through   the   Canadian railways doing business in the  United
Yukon Appointments Made.
The council for the district of
Yukon authorised by an act of last
session lias been appointed as follows:
Commissioner of the Yukon, Wm.
Ogilvie; members of council, Judge
McGuire, F. C. Wade, Lt.-Col.
Steele and Jos. E. Girourd, M. P. P.
lor Arthaha*?ka.
Girouard will also be registrar of
lands in place of Wade, who will act
as legal advisor to the council and
whose time will be fully occupied
with his other duties as crown attorney and clerk of the court.
Lt.-Col. Steele will be in command
of the police in the district.
Major Walsh will come out at his
own request as soon as relieved by
Ogilvie. When he went in last October, as suited at the time, he only
went for a year or so, as la* could
not neglect his large business for a
long period
Mr. Ogilvie will leave next week
if possible for Dawson, together with
Girourard and other officials who are
going up.

who went to liawson last year, and
returned to Vancouver about May
1st, has made a deal through (lover-
HOT Mackintosh, bv which he gets
t250,0U0 cash for his Klondike
claims. Governor Mackintosh is
quoted as having said, that he has
placed that amount of money in
Porter's hands.--Koot-enaian.
We need hardly assure the shareholders in the British America Cor
porn tion that this rumor is probably
entirely without foundation, but it
shows the estimation in which Mr.
Mackintosh is held that it should be
thought possible that he would part
witli ��5O,0J0 in cash belonging to
the company which lie represents for
Klondike claims which may have
been jumped at the time the supposed payment was made. Verity this

Bob Green, having been elected to
vote in tbe local legislature lor tbe
next four years, must do tbe following
things if he wishes to keep in harmony with the men who caused M.
P. P. to be tacked onto bis name:
Run ail the Chinese out of Kaslo.
Provide Carney and diffe with a
meal ticket when necessary.
Have the miners and mortgage tax
Get Angus Mclnnes a permanent
job of swearing in votes. He is an
artist whose discriminating powers
should not be forgotten.
Send Red Paddy to a school of oratory.
Procure the position of Surveyor-
General for your solid friend, S. P.
Drown Dave King and D. R. Young
for allowing you to get a majority in
the towns in which their great papers
are published.
Have the parliament buildings removed to Kaslo.
Build a trail to tbe claim of every
man whose vote was Green.
Stop the Government from building
any more railroads, unless they run
into Kaslo.
Have New Denver wiped off the
map and all the roads leading to it
filled up.
Get pointers from Kellie, upon how
to live a year on $600
Get posted by Fred Hume upon the
art of looking wise and playing the
dumb act when the house is in session.
Don't talk too much. Your stentorian voice might jar the plaster on
the walls of the new legislative halls.
Drink water in your whiskey, and
do not smoke unless you bold the
deuce of hearts.
If you get stuck tor lack ot inform
ation on any subject, write to the
brilliant editor of the Silve.rtonian
and get a carload of wist loin.    It is
cheaper this way than in small lots.
Do not play poker, unless you have
some country fellows in the game.
Most of tho Victoria legislators can
play poker better than they can teach
Sunday school Remember this, Bob,
and yon may be a credit to the city
from which you hail
Do not attend the Com (que, or paint
tbe town red. If you do the inhabitants might think you do not know
much about such matters, and would
likely call you Green.
Read The Ledos regularly. It
will tone your nerves, and drive
away-any clouds that may obscure
your mental vision.
Get the Legislature to raise the
price of silver. You must do this if
you want to hold your job.
If possible get a million dollars for
the Slocan at the earliest opportunity.
We all need it. and in order to remain solid with the electorate you
must do this without fail.
If you will do all the above things,
and promise us to never again be
guilty of becoming an M. P. P., we
will forgive you. You are now sentenced to four years of hard labor In
Victoria, and may the Lord have
mercy anon the Silvery Sloean.���The

The defeat of Mr. Retallack was
not the defeat ot the maa,butofthe
partv he endorsed. His campaign
was dean and honorable, and not a
word can be said reflecting upon his
Sersonallty as a candidate, Though
efeated, he is honored by those who
opposed -him and admired bv his ft*4-
lowers as much today as before tbe
polls were closed.
Ik the election beid on Saturday
the Turner Government was badly
defeated. Tbe Opposition will hsve
18 or 20 members out of the 38, with
a bare possibility of both sides Using
at 19 when the bv-elections are held
in Csseiar, two weeks later.
The defeat of the Turner government has been a surprise to msny,
but it cannot be said that the people
have acted unwisely. In msny respects the Government has shown too
little consideration for the needs of
various sections of the Province.
It was easilv seen many months ago
that the Turner government was not
giving entire satisfaction. It was too
slow to acknowledge the importance
of lending aid to the development of
the mineral resoureesot the Province,
and too ready to take from the mining
sections great sums of revenue while
giving comparatively little In return.
Koo'enay, in particular, has been
most unfortunate in this respect, and,
though a marked change in the Gov
ernmen.'s po'icy toward this section
bad been noticeable in the past six
months, yet these few months were
not time enough to heal the'wounds
caused by its former neglectful policy.
Whether or not this was the fault of
our representatives in their inability
to properly press forward the needs
of the section (which we feel hss been
the case) the fact retnains that the
Government was held accountable
for the apparent lack of seal and in-
attention in this direction. As a result the Kootenay ridings send five
Opposition members to parliament by
comfortable majorities, snd in almost
every riding outside of Vancouver
island the result has been the same.
It is now the Mainland against the
Island with odds in favor of the
Mainland. All of the Opposition members bot two are from the Mainland,
and every Government member bflt
two, and possibly four, comes from
the Island.

Word is received from Burton City of
the death of one of the old and respect
able citizens of that town.   Nelson Oul-
lickson was on the 5th inst. returning in
a boat from Burton City to Byron Burton's ranch, opposite Sand Island, where
he had been engaged for tbe past year.
He was accompanied bv Samuel Homer,
of Burton City, who at tbe time of tbe
accident was rowing the boat.   Gullick-
son was sitting in the stern of the boat
paddling.   The paddle suddenly slipped
out of his hand, and in turning quickly
to grab it he lost his ballance and went
into the Columbia.   They were at that
time quite near  Burton's  ranch, and
about 60  yards from  shore.- A heavy
current runs in that particular place and
it waa  impossible  for  Mr.  Homer to
render much assistance, and Uie deceased sank at once.   On coming to the surface his dog sprang from the boat into
the water, out in an instant the unfortunate man sank again and was seen no
more.   Onllickson wss s native of Norway and 66 years of age.   The citizens
of Burton City immediately turned out
and dragged the river, bot his body has
not been found.
The Smelter  Strik*.
On July 1st the Hall Mines management
of Nelson made a cut of 20 per cent, in
the wages of the men employed. The
reduction brought the rate of wages down
to the lowest level yet reached in Kootenay- $2 per day for labor. The men
went out on strike, but a compromise
was reached by tbe company agreeing to
pay tbe old hands the old rate, new men
to receive tj2 per day. Commenting on
Uie action of Uie smelter people Uie

Capt. Freer, of Nelson, was killed by a
fall from a stairway attached to Uie
Clarke hotel Saturday evening, July 2.
He was a step-son of H. Abbott, formerly superintendent of Uie Canadian
Pacific Railway. Freer was 39 years old.
He was educated at Trinity College
School, Port Hope, Ontario, and afterwards went to the Royal Military College
at Kingston, when he passed as one of
the four enUtled to commissions in the
Imperial service. He received a commission in the South Staffordshire regiment and served in Uie Egyptian war, for
which he received a medal, obtained
leave of absence and was appointed aide-
de-camp to General Middleton during
the Riel rebellion and served on Uie staff
of tbe military schools at London, Ont.,
and St. John's, Que, He subsequently
rejoined his regiment and resigned his
commission while his regiment was at
Gibraltar, since which time he has been
engaged in railway work in this Province.       	
Arrangements for Uie Sunday school
picnic are now complete. The ss. Slocan
will make an ea ly morning trip from
Silverton, making connections at Rose-

The following extracts are copied
from "Commerce and Industries of
Japan" by Robert P. Porter :
What Japan is doing*���If Japan shall
become an important factor as a manufacturing country, it will be felt both
by Europe and the United States in the
textile industries.  On the other hand 1
believe that American trade with Japan
can best be increased by supplying- the
needs of its cities for Iron and steel in
machinery in the public improvements
now inaugurated, aad in  supplying
railway and bridge iron, locomotives,
and rolling stock, and in tbe equipping
of its new factories.   As a manufacturing country, Japan is strongest in all
branches of textiles.and probably weakest in heavy metal work.   There is a
locomotive works at Tokyo where some
fairly good work is done.   I visited also
several foundries and some machine
shops. There is a government machine
shop at Osaka, which perhaps comes
nearer being first-class than anv other
Here they turn out  excellent  work
The Japanese are fully aware of their
weak point.and in the Imperial Technical School I found that every available
young man was put into tbe iron and
steel department.  The last session of
the Diet passed a law establishing a
government foundry and a machine
shop, and a member of the cabinet has
taken charge of it.   Japan  has just
awakened to the fact that she needs
good mechanics in the metal industries,
and that to keep up with the times she
must have good iron workers as well as
good wood workers.   Her statesmen,
moreover, are determined to build their
locomotives aud their warships and to
make all the implements of war possible si home    The policy is to purchase
abroad only what is needed immediately.   There is* no reason  why Japan
should   not   ultimately   manufacture
these things herself, but for the present
she is in a Urge measure dependent*
upon other countries for them.   She has
a Urge supply of troal, in ail, I think,
nearly 1.500 mines now open.   In Hokkaido, geologists say there are 51*0,000,.
000 tons of good coal    In Iwate, where
the recent tidal  wave   destroyed so
many lives ai.d wiped out whole towns
and villages,msy be found large quantities of iron ore.
Coal Mining.���Japan is not an iron
country, however, and though gold aud
silver are found there, none ��fits mineral proucts, except coal and copper, are
important. , ,
The principal coal beds found in
Japan belong to the Cenozoic formation, there being comparatively a small
portion of coal-bearing strata in the
earlier Mesosoic formation. It is to
the Cenoioic formation that most of the
coal beds found In Hokkaido and iu
Kiushiu, the two most important coal
districts in Japan, belong. Tbe total
available etui from these two districts
and from a certain part of the northeastern portion of the main island, is
estimated at about 600,000,000 tons, at
depths not exceeding 500 feet below sea
IA Vol
Nothing authentic is known as to the
date of the discovery of coal at this place
The three mines, which are collectively
known as the Milke colliery, were pur*
chased by the government in 1878 from
the different proprietors for the sum of
$41,000 (silver). In 1899 after making
considerable improvement*,the govern*
ment transferred the colliery to the
Mitsui firm tot the sura of ���1,500,000
(silver). There are several coal seams
in the colliery, but only the first and
second can be worked to advantage.
Tbe first averages fully eight feel of
pore solid coal and is remarkably uniform in quality and thickness, the thickest part measuring over 20 foot. The
second seam lies only ��to 10 feet below
the first seam, the thickness averaging
about 6 feet near the outcrops, though
more irreguUr and uncertain in the
deeper portion.* The coal from the
second seam is inferior in quality to
that from the first. It is said that the
Miike mines are free from explosion* of
gas and that naked lights have been
used there without any danger.
The Production of Iron and Steel ���To
show the poverty of Japan as an iron
and steel producing nation. I need only
call attention to the output of iron and
steel. The total product in IW2 and
1898 was 19,780,000 and 15.255.000
pounds of cast iron, and 187,025 and
197,270 pounds of wrought iron, respectively. The output of steel wasJ.5-8,.
000 and 1,785,000, respectively Iron is
produced chiefly iu Iwate," Shi mane,
rottori and Hiroshima. The total cait
and wrought iron and ateel produced in
1891 was as follows: Cast iron, 15.7 nt
tons; wrought iron, 4,815 tons; steel.
932 tons -
Tbe ferrous ores of Iwate, those of the
Ramaishi iron mines, sre lode iron, snd
produce iron of very excellent quality
From Shitnane, Tottori and Hiorshima
is produced chiefly from iron sand and
is well suited for manufacturing steel.
It is from Shimane and Tottori and
Hiroshima iron that the greater part of
farm implements have been made.
The process of smelting being verv old
fashioned, it le not yet po**��ihle to apply
iron produced from these districts in industrial and mechanical purpo*e*.
Ret ween 1888 and 1892 inclusive the
total of iron employed at military
arsenals was on an average 8,001 ton's
yearly: that of the navy during in years
in shipbuilding and three veer*- in arsenals was 6,861 tons, making a total of
10,022 tons.
Up to April, 1898, the total of railways
already existing, or in course of con*
���traction, was 2,681 miles, which required iu rails, bridge*, etc , 480,281
tons. For repairs and construction
these railways would require an aver
age of 17,209 tons a year. Between 1**
and 1892 inclusive the imports of rails
averaged 28,800 tons per annum. For
building merchant marine, which at the
end of 1892 amounted to 97,569-tona, and
of which 8,209 tons were built at borne.
the total of iron employed between ihhh
and 1892 inclusive, is estimated at 1,414
tons a year on an average. Again, be-
tween 1688 snd 1892 inclusive the total
employed at various iron works snd for
other purposes avenged 82,5tl tons a
year. Therefore the annual consutnp
tion of iron in Japan at that time wan
Here then, is a need, without count
ing railwav extension, of 100,000 tons
of Iron and steel annually. Why cannot
the American manufacturer look after
this? A market of *��,OQO,000 or more
annually is worth looking after, and
while you are on the ground after this,
other business will come your way.
Gold and Silver Miuing-Silver U
produced iu far larger quantities than
gold, the toul number of private silver
mines being 57 and that of silver capper
mines 13., besides many others where
silver is produced in combination with
other metals. In the production of the
white metal Akita surpssses all other
districts, its product ia 1898 being
$1,355,467 (silver) out of the total of
f2,*<20,444 (silver) produced throughout
the country. Fifu, with s total of $��!,-
408 (silver), and Fukushima, with t255.
169 (silver) come next. The Inual
silver mine in Akita, producing the
most important silver ores in Japan,
has been worked for about threw centuries. After undergoing various
vicissitudes the mine was transferred
in 1884 to Mr. Furukawa I c hi pet. the
largest mine proproprietor In Japan
Two veins are worked at present, and
the chief ores are stenhanite and man*
ganite. containing 0.1 to 0.2 per cent, of
silver. Tbe cost of mining ore contain*
ing an a verge of0.485 percent of ailver
per ton

output of 2,8 -fi.iHl gallons in 1889 the
total yield wan 2,218 679 gallons, and
therefore this yield wa* increased above

four or five years.
Kerosene-yielding localities in the
province of Fchigo are quite abundant,
numbering more than 80, but of these
only three localities are famous, containingi about 8) wells. These are all
wells, dug as ordinary wells are sunk,
the deepest being 7.VI feet. The dally
outftsjt exceeds I8.mt0 gallons. In another important nil locality the American boring proees* is Xm*i, the deerawt

The-Harry Lindley Company took
tbe boards at Spencers an Thursday
evening and entertained a well-
tilled house with a very presentable
{���reduction of "Myrtle* Ferns." On
Friday evening, owing to other attractions, the audience was not so
large but the drama "May Bloss-
omn" was presented in good style.
The attraction for this evening is
a very popular comedv-draina by
Valentiue Love entitled "The Mail
Girl," which is said to be one ol the
most amusing plays this company
produces. Many special features
will be introduced sud tonight being
the last appearance there no doubt
will be a crowded house.

The Northport Smelter
In anticipation of resuming work
at the Northport smelter in a few
days, a large force of machinists is
busily engaged in putting the machinery in first class shape.
The pipe for the city water mains
is daily expected to arrive, and as
the work will be done by the Ix* Koi
company, E. W. Gumming-* of that
company will put a force of men to
work this week digging trenche*? to
receive the pipe. The reservoir of
the company has been found fully
adequate to supply both the city and
smelter with an abundance of good
water, the latter being conveyed
from Deep creek, a distance of about
two and a half miles from town.
The Skuline to Resume.
Aivsworth, July 12.���For some
time past there have been rumors
that the Skyline mint* would resume
operations, and at last the reports
have taken tangible shape. W. E.
Sutton, who represents the Everett
smelter, now has a force of men at
work pumping out the water from
ihe mine. AY hen this work is completed the property wiil be examined and will probably lie leased by
the smelter people. The mine has
not b��*en operated for nearly two
years, but up to the time of closing
down operations has shipped more
ore than any other property in the
Hot Springs' camp. Being a dry
ore, the product is much sought for
by smelters snd -finds a ready
market. It is more than likely from
the present outlook that this high
grade silver producer will soon be
sending out regular shipments once
