for over a vear has   been   finally passed

From a paper read hefore the Applied
Science Society of McGill University,
by P. VV. Draper, B.Sc , the following
extract is taken:
"The great lead and zinc-producing-
district of south-west Missouri occupies
the extreme south-western part of that
State, and extends across into southeastern Kansas. The hulk of the mining- has been done up to the present
time in a comparatively small area,
probably 45 to 5C miles in length from
east to west, and 20 to 25 miles in
width. In this district the towns of
Joplin, Aurora andGranby,in Missouri,
and Galena, in Kansas, are the centres
of the mining industry. In this comparatively small area are found, the
greatest zinc blende deposits known to
exist in the world. While both zinc
blende and galena are found, the production of blende is far in excess of that
of galena.
"The distribution of blende is not
uniform over this whole area, but deposits of some value may be reasonably
expected at any point. From the
nature of the deposits, as will be shown,
the distribution is necessarily verv un-
"Rocka belonging to the lower carboniferous series form the bulk of the
area under consideration; limestone,
cherts, shale1** and sandstones are all
represented, hut limestones are by far
the most abundant. And it is in the
limestones that the ore deposits are
found. Tho cherts are important only
because the ore is almost invariably
found in connection with them. The
shales   are   important  as a source of
natural gas lor use iu the
"The country is a great
prairie with no marked eminences.
The strata are nearly horizontal,having
only a slight dip toward the west. The
ore occurs in great bodies of irregular
shape, generally lenticular masses,
sometimes as pipes and again as sheets.
The width and thieknees vary widely
within distances of a few meters.   Pre-
tous to the discovery of minerals of
e in  1870-71, it was an excellent
ming country, being well suited for
raising fruit and grains.
"The deposits almost invariably occur in irregular masses of chert. The
chert is in form of angular fragments
with zinc blende and galena in the
spaces between the fragments, and
crystalized on their faces. In some
places the amount of chert is so small
that the deposits assume the form of a
solid mass of ore. In other places the
chert is packed in such a manner as to
leave very small spaces for the ores.
At times stringers ot ore are found extending out into limestone, which is
lree from chert, but a careful inspection
tailed to bring to my notice more than
a few such cases, and it is quite certain
that, they are limited in number. The
ore is found at depths varying from
grass roots to 175 feet, and although
the diamond drill has shown ore in
paying quantities at depths below this
very little systematic prospecting has
heen done. This is undoubtedly due to
the large amounts of ore yet remaining
in the sh-tilower deposits. [
"At the surface much oxidized ore is*
found, but as depth is gained, the sul-J
phideappears, and It is blende which.
constitutes the great part of the ore
produced. The galena is found mostly
nearer the surface, and then only in
certain deposits. In the eastern end of
the field the oxidized ores are much
more persistent. Thus at Aurora
silicate is abundant, while at Granby
the Smithsonite is very commonly
found. The local term for oxidized
zinc ores is "silicate." The term "dry-
bone," which is used in the Wisconsin
field to designate zinc carbonate, is used
here for cerrussite (PbCO). This latter
mineral is not of very common occurrence. Associated with the ores of zinc
and lead are other minerals, the most
abundant being ctdcite, marcasite,
dolomite and bitumen. The deposits
are characterized by magnificent crystals of the various minerals. The arrangement of the crystalline aggregates
has raised very interesting questions as
to the deposition of the various minerals. Thus some specimens show
crystals of blende on galena, and again
py rite or marcasite on the blende. Then,
in other but rarer instances blende has
been found crystallized on marcasite."
The Algoma Central Co.
is shipping
its first cargoes of iron ore from its
Helen mine, 125 miles north of Sault
Ste. Marie, Ont. The Helen mine is an
outcrop lying between characteristic
rocks of the Lake Superior iron-bearing
region. It is 12 miles from and 640 feet
above the lake at Michipicoton Harbor,
and the exposed portion of the deposit
is about 400 feet wide and 700 feet long.
In this distance it rises 120 feet. At
the foot of the bluff, tunnels have been
driven into the bluff 240 feet, reaching
the counter rock. At the west end the
ore body extends under the lake to its
deepest point, 125 feet below water
level. This lake can be drained by a
short tunnel. The company estimates
that it has 15,000,000 tons in sight by
measurements and diamond drill borings, with 200 feet of ore below the lake
level, and when borings were discontinued, the coves were still ore. The
full extent of the deposit is therefore
unknown. Its width of 400 feet does
not include a strip nearly half as wide
ot a lower grade of soft hematite, economically valuable only when transportation costs are not great. The company
expects to utilize this at its works at

The train had come from Mombasa
to Kima. Here Mr. Ryall was told
there was a lion within 200 yards, and
he, therefore, detached his corridor
carriage, walked up the train to another compartment, in which were Mr.
Heubner, Mr. Parenti, and the narrator
of the story, and suggested a search for
the beast.
The three men joined Ryall, but the
hunt was unsuccessful. As, however,
the station-master told them two lions
prowled about the station every night.
Parenti, Heubner and Ryall decided to
remain on watch in the detached carriage, which was shunted on to a siding.
About midnight Parenti went to sleep
on the floor, while Heubner occupied a
bed above, aud Ryall sat on his seat
and kept first watch.
At 1:80 Parenti woke with a start
aud found a lion treading on him. He
saw the beast's fore paws on Ryall's
body, and heard Ryall utter a cry. He
tried to reach his gun, but failed, aud
then he managed to crawl through a
window. He ran for the station-master, and on returning they found Heubner in the kitchen at the back of the
"Ryall! Ryall!" they called.but there
was no answer. Then the station-master and his men went back with burning brands to the carriage.
They found it drenched with blood,
but eni|jty.   Ryall could not be seen.
Day dawned, and outside they found
more blood and many footmarks, both
of a lion and a lion's cabs.
Ryall they never found.
Many who complain that they cannot use milk would be able to do so
if they would drink it in the proper
way.   An exchange says:
"Do not swallow milk fast and in
blj? gulps. Sip It slowly. Take four
minutes at least to finish a glassful
and do not take more than a good
teaspoonful at one sip When milk
goes into the stomach it is ii stantly
curdled. If a large quantity is drunk
at once it is curdled in one big mass,
on the outside of which only the juices
of the stomach can work. If we
drink it in little sips each little sip is
curdled up by itself, and the whole
glassful finally finds itself in a loose
lump made up of little lumps through,
round and among which the stomach's
juices percolate, and dissolve the
whole speedily and simultaneously."

known district superintendent of police,
was killed by a lion in a railway carriage while journeying in East Africa,

he went to the younff surgeon in

plan ot action. "I'll fix you all right
in a jiffy," he said. Then he went
into an anteroom, snipped a couple of
hairs from his wrist, and fastened
them to the end ot an instrument.
Returning to the patient, he inserted

again. There were the hairs, suit

A Voice from Wall Street.
James R. Keen, the well-Unown
Wall street broker and financier said
recently : "The people of this country
must arouse themselves. The coming
election is of more importance, from
the standpoint of pure .Americanism,
than anv that lias transpired since the
election of Lincoln. Money is in the
saddle ; it is riding down the institutions of this country with a confident
insolence lhat tells of its linn belief in
its own invincibility. It is running the
government today in its every branch
and arm. If money's power in moulding public affairs goes forward four
years more as it has for the four years
past the name of American liberty will
only be worth a recollection as a matter
of history. Money is pressing the people backward step by step.
"What will be the end ? If it goes
on there are, as matters trend, but two
solutions. One is socialism and the
other is revolution. The American
people must de'end themselves from
money, just as they once guarded their
forest frontiers from savages. Unless
they come solidly shoulder to shoulder
for their rights and come at once,
Bunker Hill will have been a blunder,
Vorkton a mistake.
Copper Production.
The growth of copper production ir
the present century has been ver\
rapid, being in the first decade 91,000
tons, in the fifth 291,000 tons, and in
the tenth decade, which ends with 1900,
3,643,000 tons, of which 1,963,000 tons
is supplied from North America, the
large proportion of this being from the
United Stetes. The rapid extension of
the railroad system in Mexico is resulting in the opening of some very extensive copper mines in lhat country *,
the richness of the ores, which, as a
rule carry gold and silver, together
with the abundance of very cheap labor
and the climatic advantages will greatly
increase the North American production. One of the largest copper mining
enterprises in the world is now being
started by the Rothschilds, who have
invested $5,000,000 therein. This
great property is in the stale of Micli-
oacan, and in the same mineral belt as
are the El Progresso mines.

SANDON, B. C., AUGUST 25,  iqoo.
The Winnipeg Free Press, a C   P. R. organ, and
the Winnipeg Tribune, edited by R. L. Richardson, have
had a long and interesting argument about the amount
of money which the railways of Canada have secured from
the dominion, provincial and municipal governments. The
Tribune last week published the following table over the
signature of the auditor-general, which should be a sufficient
guarantee of its reliability. It shows that the people of
Canada have put up in hard cash over two hundred million
dollars, to say nothing of some forty-four million acres of
land in Manitoba and the North-West and a hundred million or so in coal land values in the Crow's Nest. As an
asset against this enormous outlay the dominion has the
Intercolonial, worth a little over sixty million. The provinces and municipalities have absolutely nothing to show
for their money except the fact that the railways exist.
This table is worth keeping for future reference :
Cost of Intercolonial Railway (proper) $56,750,843

Some of the Coast papers started a rumor three weeks
ago that Joe Martin was going to quit British Columbia
politics and pull out for Dawson to practice his profesh
among the isolated argonauts of the Klondike. The wish
was probably father to the thot for every corporation and
partizan paper in the country published the joyful intelligence in circus poster type that the arch-demagogue Martin
was going to go away and leave them alone. But before
these people had had time to congratulate themselves on
their good luck Joe spoiled the dream of bliss by announcing that he was not quite thru with British Columbia
politics yet���that, in fact, he was only getting nicely down
to business. Now the report comes from Toronto that
some of the independents in the effete and dollar-grasping
east are arranging for a nice little stumping tour for Joseph
during which he will probably wreck a government or two
and slightly  revolutionize politics  among the  slow-going
Winnipeg while en route, and may take the stump on a
dominion crusade against corporation influence and
machine government. Cliffy Sifton and Wilfy Laurier will
probably find things quite interesting during the dominion
campaign if their dear friend Joseph starts out to touch
them up in the eastern provinces.
Thk Anarchists of Italy are nearly as bad as the
republicans of Kentucky about killing their rulers. The
difference is on the side of the anarchists, however, as they
have no vote to make and unmake kings, while the republicans of Kentucky have a vote, but are unwilling to abide
by its decision.
Laurier says that in the dominion campaign he does
not propose going west of Lake Superior ; he will leave
all that country to Clifford Sifton. After the election Wilt"
will discover that Sifton is not coming east of Lake
Superior except as a private citizen. The people out
west won't do a thing to Sifton. Large possees of hostile
electors are camped on his trail right now and his political
hide will be dangling on the barb wire fence that surrounds
the bone yard of defeat when the returns come in. Oh, no !
we won't do a thing to that fellow out our way. What a
skinning he will get when he tries to explain the Yukon
railway deal to the inim boot miners or to show the cow
punchers and grangers how Bill, Dan <_v Van have made
them rich.    It certainly is off with Sifton.
Thk Kaslo city council is very badly afraid of itself.
When L. E. Chipman resigned the city clerkship a dozen
or more local aspirants put in applications. Presumably
to shuffle off the responsibility of choosing between these
candidates the aldermen offered the job to Charlie Trumbell,
an American mining engineer residing in Spokane. The
appointment raised a howl, and every clique in town
there are several thousand cliques in Kaslo had a kick
coming. To add to the unpleasantness of the councillors
situation Mr. Trumbell refused the office. Now the aldermen have appointed a man who has not been long enough
in the country to vote. Factional jealousy and moral cowardice have killed bigger cities than Kaslo.
John Houston of Nelson and Robert F. Green of
Slocan went back on the principles on which they were
elected when they associated themselves with the Dunsmuir
government. In the speech from the throne this government promised to appoint a commission to inquire into the
workings of tlie mining laws of the province. This was
equivalent to a declaration that the Dunsmuir government
intended to attempt a repeal of the eight-hour law. Such
design was no fulfilment oi the Vancouver convention's
understanding that there was to be no contentious legislation, and Green and Houston should have crossed the
floor and taken a seat with the opposition. Bv continuing
to vote with the government thev endorsed the governments policy. By voting with the' opposition thev would
have condemned it. The fact that they were personally
antagonistic to Joseph Martin, leader of the opposition,
should have had nothing to do with the case whatever.
If thk government of the province of British Columbia
appoints a commission to inquire into the workings of the
mining laws, and that commission fulfils the purpose for
which it will be created and revives the eight-hour agitation, the aforesaid government thereby signs its own death
warrant. No government in this province could repeal tlie
eight-hour law and survive. To attempt its repeal is to
commit political suicide. Dunsmuir knows this, lie is no
fool. 1 /// fh*, u~,

The Midway Advance has the following *o say relating to the proposed
smelter to be erected there: "Andrew
Laidlaw, general manager of the Standard Copper Co., accompanied by his
solicitor, A. M. Whiteside, drove down
on Wednesday of last week to look over
the site for the smelter which is shortly
'-o be constructed between Boundary
Falls and Midway. The site which has
been selected is on Kerr's ranch. It is
an ideal location for a smelter and in
Mr. Laidlaw's opinion is the most suitable location to be found any place in
the district. The capital of the company is $500,000, assessable to par, and
the registered office of the company is
at Greenwood. A few days ago the
company paid J. P. Harlan and Dr.
M.Martin, New York, tll,250, the final
payment on the Marguerite The order
for the pyritic smelting plant was on
June '21 placed with the. Denver Engineering Works. The plant has a
aruaranteed capacity of 200 tons daily,
but Mr. Laidlaw has made arrangements for a power plant of double that
capacity and the building will be erect-
led for a 400-ton smelter."
