purpose of studying  and furthering the

members   but   all   meetings    will   bt

White Company is  shipping about 100
tons of Star ore   a   week   to  the Trail
smelter.      This   freight is   divided up
equally   between   the   two   roads, the
White   company   shipping  alternately
over   the   C. P. R.   and   the  K. & S.
I The freight  is   the   same   over   either
road and is settled for  by the   smelter,
which makes returns for  the  ore shipped less  freight  and  treatment.    The
division of the profits  is fixed   up  between the two  companies.    The  shipper has not a word to  say about which
way the ore shall be shipped, but  is in-
instructed by the smelter  management
to ship via the C. P. R. or the K. & S.
as the case may be.

Sandon has unequalled natural facilities for two classes oi recreation, ice
sports in winter and ariel navigation
sports in summer.
The permanancy and good condition
of Sandon ice continues up to the 24th

largely to the success of tlie carnival.
Other requisites to making it a success
lie within ourselves. Let every curler,

And gazing dreamily away ;
Her hands are wrinkled now that were
So plump and  smooth and soft   one
day ;
Her hair that once In ringlets hung
Forms one wee coil as white as snow
Once   she   was   free   from   cares and
Perhaps she flirted long ago.
iler   nose   droops   down, her lips are
She sighs for loved ones gone before;
The lustre from her eyes is gone,
Her once round cheeks are round no
more ;
Yet once, perhaps, her glance was coy,
Perhaps it made   her smile to   know
That for her cruelty some boy
Was broken-hearted long ago.
She rises slowly, bent and small,
And moves with feeble, careful tread,
She wears a sombre garb, and all
The graces  from her   form are fled ;
But once, perhaps, she tripped along
In airy robes���the note of woe
In some forgotten poet's song,
She may have given, long ago
Ah Time, thou rogue ! I see   her now
In all her youthful grace and charms,
Behold the ringlets on her brow,
Thtf rounded whiteness of her arms ;

Down flowery lanes,her cheeks aglow
With pleasure at sweet words from lips
That fell to dust long, long ago.

"You're the man that keeps the marriage books, ain't you?" she asked.
"Yes, ma'am," he answered. "What
book do you wish to see ?"
"Kin you find out if Jack Peters was
married ?"
Search developed the name of John
Peters, for whose marriage a license
had been issued two years before.
"1 thot so," said the woman. "Married 'Lize Waters, didn't he ?
"The license is issued for a marriage
with Miss Eliza Waters."
"Yep. Well, I'm 'Lize. I figured
I'd orter come in and tell you that
Jack Peters has escaped."
Many simple people who buy marriage licenses of city clerks imagine
that the clerk in some way becomes responsible for their marriage, and that ]
they are in duty bound to report to him
afterward  and let him  keep   track of
their affairs.

SANDON,   DECEMBER 14, iqoi.
When Prince Henry won out
Queen Wilhelmina, Europe went frantic with joy. Here was a royal marriage based on love, and it was celebrated with all the pageantry and pomp
that the circumstance demanded.
Now the truth outcrops. Henry
is a leacherous libertine. Wilhelmina
is a fool. Kaiser William staked the
man to marry the woman and hand
over Holland to Germany.
Henry was tough in his time and
went the route at the pace that kills.
Booze, the green cloth and the red
light caught his game. He is in hock
to his last shirt and he spends his
leisure hours getting sloppy jags.
When he tried to touch the lady for the
price, Wilhelmina refused to dig up,
and Henry licked her to a flat-iron
finish. Now a separation is in order
and Holland is sad.
This sounds more like a story of
African Avenue than a romance of the
royal court. Transpose the names :
call them Rough-lock Hank and
Scrap-iron Mina and you have a common phase of life below   the deadline.
The Dutch are fools to stand such
work. The royal household should
be pulled. Henry and Wilhelmina
should be yanked into the police court
and given thirty days. After that turn
them loose to rustle their own living.
Tho creatures of royal blood, flattered,
feasted, pampered, petted and idolized,
the crowned heads of Holland are not
above the brutal passions of the coarsest of their serfs. Kings are brutes
when the play comes right. Only
fools and sycophants worship the
featish of royalty.
less freight ? The Canadian market is
safe enuf. Sane men do not ship coal
to Newcastle.
It is not a tariff on lead we want,
but free trade in machinery and supplies, which will let the Canadian beat
all other lead producers in the markets
of the world. The priee realized on
the surplus shipped abroad will always
fix the price paid to the producer at
home. Protection in Canada will not
raise the price in London. A tariff
might foster monopoly but it would
not stimulate industrv.
The lead industry wants a release
from the burdensome protection which
makes mining, smelting and refining
machinery and supplies cost more in
Canada than in any other mining
country on earth.
Canadian manufacturers have been
pampered and wet-nursed until they
are a great big lot of greedy, pap-
sucking babies. Slocan is loaded
down with a burden of protection to
build up artificial industries in Ontario.
Mining bears the burden. Throw off
this tariff and make these cowardlv
manufacturers stand on their feet or
seccumb to their fate as incapables.
Then mining supplies would cost a
fair price and Kootenay lead mines
would beat the world.
over the dump and still be getting a
better price for their lead than they
ever got before. This could only be
accomplished by the construction and
operation of a government smelter and
refinery. Under any other management the refiner, not the producer,
would get the money for the lead con!
sumed, and he would base his price for
the lead produced on what he got for
the surplus shipped abroad. London
price, less freight.
The Toronto Globe has preempted a Paystreak idea. It is now
using a 17-em editorial column.
For a paper published in the red
pump belt The Globe is not bad. We
do not begrudge it any success it may
attain thru copying our style.
G. O. Buchanan has figured it
out that the Dominion government
shoujd increase the tariff on lead products, and argues that this would
stimulate the Canadian industry.
G. O. has this thing put up wrong
and we want to show him where.
With a refinery established in Canada no foreign competitor could cut in
on the Canadian market. Canada can
produce lead too cheap. How could
the American lead trust, for instance,
paying $3.50 in the Coeur d'Alenes,
undersell a Canadian concern buying
lead in the Slocan at the London price,
Smith Curtis says the Vancouver
papers lied about him. We congratulate Smith Curtis. Whenever the
Coast papers begin to lie about a man
it is a good sign.
According to Curtis' say so, he
delivered a speech in Vancouver laying
down a political creed of eight stanzas
in which he did not advocate bonusing
Jim Hill. This the Vancouver papers
failed to report but they counted him
among the grafter gang. Curtis indignantly denies that he ever advocated
bonusing the V. V. & E. He says
he wants to see the Coast-Kootenay
road built by the government, or,
failing that, by the corporation giving
the best terms.
This is sound policy, and Curtis
will do well to stay by it. Bonuses
and land grants for railways may look
good to Victoria folks, but they are
not popular in the Kootenay.
Curtis made an off-side play,
nevertheless, when he identified himself
with McBride and Bodwell and the
V. V. & E. ring. Curtis is right to
oppose Dunsmuir, but he should give
the grafters the shut-eye
While Slocan and East Kootenay
is standing still waiting for some bio;
monopolist to come along and build a
refinerv, what is the matter with the
people of Kootenay building one them-
selver. It seems that the B. C. government will not build it, the C. P. R.
will not build it, Gooderham & Black-
stock will not build it, and the many
other moneved men who have a loose
million or two handy don't seem to
care much about it. Then why not tlie
people of the country build it.
There is an opening here for a
good promoter. Every business man,
miner, prospector and mine owner is
directly interested in seeing a refinery
built. Suppose a company were incorporated with the right kind of men
at the head oi it, and stock were put
on sale at $100 a share, how long
would it take to find $1,000,000 p
finance the scheme ? It would be the
most popular stock ever offered for
sale, as it would pay the purchasers
not only good interest on the money
invested but enormous dividends thru
the business revival that would follow.
If Canadian lead producers received as much money tor the 20,000
tons of lead produced annually in the
Dominion as Canadian lead consumers
pay for the 13,000 tons of lead consumed annually in the Dominion, the
producers   could    throw   the   surplus

welcome at the old home. Over sixty

The Coeur d'Alene mine owners

will take $3.50 for their lead. Another
cut will probably follow when the trust
gets rid of its surplus. ������������������i

prospectors' Superstition.
With an idea that physiological principles run through the formation of ores
many mines believe in what is termed
the "mother lode" It has grown to he
a popular superstition that in almost
every mining district that somewhere in
the locality a mother lode can be found,
compared with which the "kid" amunts
to nothing. Nobody thinks of looking
for the "brother'Mode, the "sister" lode
or the "mother-in-law" lode, hut all are .
on the search for the mother lode.
The Western Mining World says that j
as a matter of fact there is no such thing I
as a mother lode, unless at some great
depth in the bowels of the earth a lumi
ber of veins carrying similar classes of
ore run together into a common body.
But a mother lode, if entitled to that
never comes to the surface.
Some veins are larger than others,
but there is no parentage applied to the
fact. It is merely the circumstance of
a larger fissure in the rocks fitting up
with veinous matter and ore. Thousands
upon thousands of dollars have been
squandered by men in search of some
great parental lode.
This is one of the most prominent
features of a placer district. In the
Klondike country promoters talk glibly
of the mother lode, as if a rich placer
necessarily meant the existence of some
lode that had mothered the deposits
without impaling her own productive
