The decision of Magistrate Boultbee,
of Rossland, in the Gieser case of
breaking the .Alien Labor Law, was
received with general satisfaction by
the miners of the Slocan camp.
At a meeting of the directors and
shareholders of the Sandon Rink Co.,
it was practically decided to run the
rink on the same lines as last season,
and to make numerous improvements
for the convenience of the public. Some
grading and filling needs to be done.
The Slocan Star will commence shipping to the Trail smelter at once, the
test having proved satisfactory and the
low rate having been secured. This
means a shipment of twenty tons per
day at present which may eventally be
increased to forty tons. The shipments
will be made in 8 car lots each road
taking its turn in receiving this amount.
Mining Outlook for the Winter.
The Rambler.
A contract has been concluded  between the Jenckes  Machine company
and and the Rambler-Cariboo mine for
the purchase, by the latter, of the plant
required under the program of improvements mapped out for the properly.
The first feature of the new machinery
is a ten drill compressor plant to be
driven bv water.    This will more than
double the compressor facilities at the
mine, as the present plant has a com-
pacity of nine drills. Both plants will
be utilized, giving a total capacity of
io drills. A new hoist is to be supplied
capable of hoisting from the 800-foot
level. The machinery for the new concentrator is also to be finished. Pending the delivery of the new hoist, a
tempary outfit will be set up at the
mine. This is already shipped. The
entire order is to be delivered within 60
Bernj Good.
The famous comedian Burton once
owed a bill to a grocer named Berry.
He became so annoyed at the persistant
efforts of the man to collect, that the
last time he called the comedian waxed
angry and said:���
"You have presented your bill, Berry,
before it was due, Berry. Your father,
the elder, Berry, would not have been
such a goose, Berry. But I don't care
a straw, Berry; and if you come here
again I'll kick your raspberry till its
black, Berry.
Prospects seem bright and encouraging for the winter months in this
part-of the Slocan. To enumerate the
different mines which will ship we find
first on the list the Slocan Star. This
property has started shipping to the
Trail smelter under the new agreement
and is shipping crude ore. The experiment is in its first stages and can only
be decisively settled, when the returns
are received on shipments forwarded.
The present intention is to ship over
both roads, the C P. R. getting the
bulk and the K. & S. getting the sack
ore. Each road will handle the tonage
week about. If the venture proves
successful the output will be increased
from 20 to 40 tons per day which will
necessitate the employment of a considerable number of men.
The American Boy has bot a big consignment of ore sacks from the Montezuma Mining Co. thru H. Byers & Co.
and are sacking and storing ore in one
of their workings ready for the first
rawhiding. When this is established
the Last Chance tram will hum with
the increased business and the American Boy will turn out at least a car a
The Last Chance will start shipping
in the near future and will break all
previous records by turning out probably two cars a day.
The Noble Five company will be in
a position to push matters when the
rawhidiug starts and they will probably
turn out at least four cars a month.
The Sunset, at Cody, is still on development work with every indication
of becoming a regular shipper. One
car of very heavy ore was shipped on
Friday, 220 sacks going over 20 tons.
The Reco-Goodenough is another
one of the banner properties that will
do extensive shipping this winter.
The Wonderfnl group is packing
down ore and with the increased facilities for handling ore afforded by raw-
hiding, will probably increase the output.
The Mountain Con. is getting out
some high grade ore, the pack teams
coming into town every day loaded.
The Ruth, while only doing development, are getting out 60 tons, the first
15 ton lot going to Kaslo on Thursday
from the Hope and Sunshine claims.
This property is liable to start at any
time with a full pay roll.
The Payne is engaged doing development work with a good sized force
and installing the machinery for a season of activity.
Considering the situation as a whole
the outlook of prosperity for the winter
season is very bright. If the prices for
lead and silver improve and no unfor-
seen accident occurs to disturb existing
conditions this, the gereatest white metal
camp on earth, should flourish and our
mine owners, miners and business men
wear the satified smile   indicative of
well filled pockets.

A Letter Prom the Editor.
Dear Billy.���As I promised to write
my experiences while touring I herewith drop you  the initial   instalment.
I was sitting in the Queen's hotel,
Nelson, the other evening talking with
a gang of old-timers when the subject
switched onto music. One gent claim-
to have heard Ramini. Another claimed the distinction of having listened to
Padereskwi. and so on until all the
musicians of any note had been brot
into the game of talk. Then Parson
Brown got his work in. ,   *
"I never heard any musicians," Parson said, "but I will tell you what I
did hear. I was up on the Payne
mountain overlooking Three Forks one
day about six years ago, shortly after
the Kaslo and Slowgoing road was
built. You will remember that the old
wagon road ran along parallel to the
K. & S. and that two or three trails
were cut thru the woods, besides which
a right of way had been slashed for the
railroad and afterward abandoned for a
more favorable one. I was sitting
looking down into the gulch at all this,
a couple of thousand feet below me,
when a Missourian came along and
started to admire the scenery. I pointed out to him the long lines made by
the roads and trails, dotted and crossed
here, and there by wood piles gotten out
for the railroad. Suddenly the Missourian drew a mouth organ and commenced to play the most horrible discordant air I ever heard. 'What are
you doing?' said I. But he never
answered. I hollered at him and tried
to take the mouth organ away from
him, but he pushed me aside and went
on with his tune. Then he stopped
as suddenly as he started. I thot he
had gone crazy and I was preparing to
run away, when he got his breath and
asked, 'How do you like that tune?'
'What in hell are you trying to play ? '
I asked.
" 'Why, can't you read music?' he
said. 'Look down there. Don't you
those lines and woodpiles look like a
selection from Wagner ? 1 have played
all the woodpiles from Three Forks to
Bear Lake'."
R. F. Green, M. P. P., of Kaslo,
passed thru Nelson, Tuesday, en route
to Victoria. Bob is a politician, and
his business, this time, at the Coast, is
politics, pure and simple. Unlike some
of the members ofthe legislature occupying high positions, Mr. Green represents a constituency wit people in it.
���Nelson Tribune.
T. A. Richard read a paper before
the American Association for the Advancement of Science, last month, upon
the subject of Greater Simplicity in the
language of science, particularly in relation to geological and minerological
matters. In the course of his plea, he
"Vagueness of language produces
looseness of knowledge in the teacher
as well as the pupil. Examples of this
form of error are easy to find. The
word 'lynamic' has a distinct meaning
in physics, but it is ordinarily employed
in the lowest possible manner in geological literature. Thus, the origin of a
perplexing ore deposit was recently imputed to the effects produced by the
'dynamic power' which had shattered a
certain mountain. 'Dynamic' is of
Greek derivation and means powerful;
therefore a'powerful power' had done
this thing; but in physics the word is
used in tbe sense of active, as opposed
to'static'or stationary, and it implies
motion resulting from the application
of force In the case quoted, and in
many similar instances, jthe word
'agency' or 'activity' would serve to interpret the hazy idea of the writer, aud
there is every reason to infer, from the
context, that he substituted the term
'dynamic power' merely as a frippery
of speech. It is much easier to talk
grandiloquently about a 'dynamic
power' which perpetrates unutterable
things and reconstructs creation in the
twinkling of an eye, than It is to make
a careful study of a region, trace its
structural lines, and decipher the relations of a complicated series of faults.
When this has been done, and a writer
nces comprehensive language to sum
marize activities which he has expressly
defined and described, then indeed he
has given a meaning to such words
which warrants him in the use of them.
"Among geological names there is
that comfortable word 'metasomatosie,'
and its offspring of 'inetasomatic interchange,1 'metasomatic action,' 'inetasomatic origin,' etc , etc. To a few who
employ the term to express a particular
manner in which rocks undergo charge,
it is a convenient word for a definite
idea, but for the greater numhei of
writers on geological subjects it is a
wordy tloud, a nebular phrase, which
politely covers the haziness of their
knowledge concerning a certain phe
nomenon. When you don't know what
a thing ii, call it a 'phenomenon.' Instances of mere vulgarity of scientific
language are too numerous to mention.
'Auriferous' and 'argentiferous' are
ugly words They are unnecessary
ones also. The other day a metallurgical specialist spoke of 'auriferous amalgamation' as though any process in
which mercury is used could be gold,
bearing unless it was part of the program that somebody should ad I particles of gold to tho ore under treatment. A mining engineer, of the kind
known to the press as an expert, described a famous lode as traversing 'on
the one hand a feldspathic tufaceous
rock'and'on the other hand a meta-
morphic matrix of a somewhat argillo-
arenaceous composition.' This is scientific  nonsense,   the  mere  travesty of
speech To those who care to dissect
the terms used it is easily seen that the
writer of them could make nothing out
of the rocks he bad examined save the
fact that they were decomposed, and
that the rock which he described last
might have been almost anything for
all he aaid of it; forhisdescription,wben
translated, means literally a changed
matter of a somewhat clayey-sandy
composition, which, in Anglo-Saxon, is
m-u-d. The 'somewhat' is the one useful word in the -sentence. Such language may be described in the terms of
mineralogy as metamorphosed English
pseudo morpbic after blatherskite.
'.Next consider the position of the
reader. It is scarcely necessary at this
date to plead for the cause of technical
education and the generous bestowal of
the very best that there is of scientific-
knowledge. The great philosophers of
that New Reformation which marked
the era of the publication of 'The Origin
of Species' have given most freely to all
men of their wealth and learning and
research. When these have given so
much we might well be less niggardly
with our small change and cease the
practice of distributing, not good wholesome intellectual bread but the mere
stones of knowledge, the hard fossils of
what were once stimulating thoughts.
Among certain scientific men there is a
feeling that scientists should address
themselves only to fellow scientists,and
that to become an expositor to the unlearned is to lose caste among the
learned. They are not many .however,
who dare confess to such a creed, although their actions may occasionally
endorse it. On the whole, modern
science is nothing if not catholic in its
generosity. 'To promote tbe increase
of natural knowledge and to forward
the application of scientific methods of
investigation to all the problems of life"
was tbe avowed purpose of the greatest
of the philosophers of the Victorian era.
"There are those who are full of a
similar good will, but they fail in giving effect to it because they are unable
to use language which can be widely
understood In its very infancy .geology
was nearlv choked with big words, for
Lyell, the father of modern geology,
said, 70 years ago, that the study of it
was 'very easy, when put into plainer
language than scientific writers choose,
often unnecessarily, to employ.' At
thiB day even the publications of the
Geological Surveys of the United States
and the Australian colonies,for example,
are occasionally restricted in usefulness
by erring in tliis respect, and as I yield
to none in my appreciation of the spleii
did service done to geology and to mining by these surveys, I trust my criticism will he accepted in the thoroughly
friendly spirit with which it is offered.
It seems to me that one might almost
say that certain of these extremely
valuable publications are 'badly' pre
pared because they seem to overlook
the fact that they are, of course, intended to aid the mining community in
the first place, and the public, whether
lay or scientific, only secondarily. From
a wide experience among those engaged
in mining I can testify that a large part
of the literature thus prepared is useless
to them,and that no one regrets it more
deeply than they, because there is a
marked tendency among this class of
workers to appreciate  tlie  assistance
which science can give Take, for ex-
ample, a sentence like tbe following,
extracted from one of the recent reports
of the United States Geological Survey:
'The ore forms a series of imbricating
lenses, or a stringer lead, in the slates,
the quartz conforming, as a rule, to thil
carunculated schistose structure,tbough
occasionally breaking across laminae,
and sometimes the slate is so broken as
to form a reticulated deposit.' This
was written by one of our foremost
geologists, and, when translated, the
sentence is found to convey a useful
fact, but is it likely to be clear to anyone but a traveling dictionary? A thoroughly literary man might know the
exact meaning of the two or three very
unusual words which are employed in
this statement, but the question is, will
it be of any use whatever even to a
fairly educated miner, or b,e understood
by those who pay for the preparation of
such literature, namely, the taxpayers?
An example of another kind is afforded
by a Tasmanian geologirt,who recently
described certain ores as due to 'the
effects of a reduction in temperature of
the hitherto liquified hydronlutonic solutions, and their consequent regular
precipitation.' These solutions, it is
further stated, presumably for the guidance of those who wield tbe pick, "ascended in the form of metallic super
heated vapors which combined eventually with ebullient steam to form other
aqueous solutions causing geyser-like
discharges at the surface, aided by
subterranean and irrepressible pressure ' At the same time certain 'dynamical forces' were very busy indeed and
'eventuated in the opening of fissures'���
of which one can only regret that they
did not swallow up the author, at
Nathan and Abiram were once engulfed
in the sight of all Israel.
"It will be well to contrast these two
examples of exuberant verbosity, be
cause the first befogs the statement of a
scientific observation of value, made by
an able man, while the second cloaks
the ignorance of a charlatan, who masquerades his nonsense in the trappings
of wisdom. Here you have an illustration of the harmfulness of this kind of
language, which obscures truth and
falseness alike, to the degradation of
science and the total confusion of those
of the unlearned who are searching
after information
"In all seriousness, is it too much to
ask that such technical terms as are
considered essential shall not be used
carelessly, and that in publications intended for an untechnical public, as are
most government reports, an effort be
made to avoid them, and, where unavoidable, those which are least likely
to be understood shall he translated in
foot notes? Even as regards the transactions of scientific societies, I believe
that those of us who are active members
have little to lose and much to gain hv
confining- tho use of our clumsy terminology tOjtoover ideas which we cannot
otherwise express. By doing ho we
shali contribute. I earnestly believe, to
that advancement of science which we
all have at heart."

going to take out coal and coke there
and Harry Matheson threatens to start

that the comparison of Frank with
Fernie provides a fair criterion. When
it comes to the big mit act the coal

Crossing the summit at Crow's
Nest Lake we get into the cow country.
To an ignorant observer, judging from
where I sit; cow punching is all right.
There are plenty of cattle running
loose and an industrious cow man,
reasonably well posted on the science
of artistically metamorphosing the artistic effect of cattle brands should be
able to do a good business, providing
of course that he was a good rustler,
had his gall and carried a piece of hay
wire under his saddle. Business in
this line flurishes best along the frontier of two great nations���the 49th
parallel 1 for instance.
At Lethbridge we got up against

Pure iron does not possess nor will it
retain magnetic properties To render
these permanent it appears that the
metal must be combined with either
carhon, sulphur or phosphorus, and especially the former.
The first anthracite coal known to be
such was discovered at Mauch Chunk,
Pa , in 1791. The Lehigh Coul Mining
Company began business in the same
year, making a commodity of the recent
The total sales of lead for the year
1900 in the Joplin-Galena district
amounted to $1,407,816, tbe increase be-
in;** unequalled by any previous year
Prices were well maintained, notwithstanding the abnormal increase. The
outlook for lead in 1901 is bright, and it
is belie** ed that the sales will at least
equal those of 1900.
The older the formation, the more
permanent the mineral vein. The
older the fissure, the more likely are
the metal contents to improve with
depth. Surface veins are shallow veins
newly formed. They pinch out. The
greater the seismic energy the more
likely are the fissures to be strong and
true. Past volcan c action is favorable
to mineral deposits.
Quartz mining is almost entirely a
thing of modern days The gold of
ancient days was obtained almost altogether from placer or alluvial diggings
What little quartz mining was done by
the <tncients, as in the mines in Nubia,
was accomplished either by heating the
��� <>ck and then dashing cold water upon
it, causing it to crack and "loosen, or
else by driving wedges or gads into the
interstices and thus breaking out the
ore. Irregular tunnels of considerable
length were sometimes run in this way.
Miners who work continuously in a
quicksilver mine suffer very severely in
their health. They often lose their
teeth from salivation, being almost
universally afflicted with toothache
They are subject to paralysis, convul
sions and premature old age. They
sometimes become so Impregnated with
mercury that a piece of brass put in
their month, or rubbed between the
fingers, becomes white like silver. The
only cure is absolute cessation from
such eoiployment.though certain classes
of mineral water baths is efficacious.
The Engineering and Mining Journal,
of New York, the leading mining jour-
nal of America, if not the world, and a
recognized authority on all questions
relating to the mining industry, has
this to say of the memorial recently
issued by the B C. Mining Association:
"We give below the lint of grievances
presented by the British Columbia Mining Association, some of which are solid
enough. The taxation in an ambitious,
growing Province, with a population
still comparatively small, is inevitably
heavy, and it Is not easy to see ho���* it
can be reduced to any considerable extent. Some of the legislative grievances are also serious, though we think
the Association makes a mistake in including among them the requirement
of statistical information, and the regulations concerning the safety of mines
and hoisting machinery. If these
clauses had been omitted, the memorial
would have been stronger."
A tourist tells how he traveled with
a young couple, evidently on their
honeymoon, and the passengers in
that particular car were in tbe grins
most of the time over their antics.
The bride had got the man she
loved, and she didn't care who saw
her put her head on his shoulder.
The bridegroom had got a farm with
his wife, and it he wanted to feed
her on sweeis, or squeeze her hand,
whose business waa it?"
A little old man sat directly opposite the couple, and he looked at them
so often that the young husband finally explained:
"We've just got married."
"I knowed it all the time," chuckled the other.
"And we can't help it, you know."
"No, you can't; I'll be blowed it
you can."
"I presume it all seems very silly
to an old man like you," continued
the husband.
"Does it? Does it?" cackled the
old fellow. "Well, I can tell you it
does not, then. I've been there three
times over, and now I'm on my way
to marry a fourth. Silly I Why.

An active crusade against the
wearing of ladfes corsets is being
carried on at Budapest. The Hungarian minister for public instruction
has issued an energetic order against
their use, forbidding all girl pupils
attending the public and private day
schools in Hungary to wear them.
Herr Von Wiassics declares in his
order that the corset prevents the full
development of the bodily organs and
stunts the growth.   He desires a uni
form blouse to be adopted in its stead.
This order has been sympathetically
received in educational circles, but
regret is expressed that the female
teachers have not been included in
it, as it is thought their example may
be prejudicial to their pupils.

The English victims of arsenic poison in beer now number more than
115 dead and more than 1000 ill. The
area affected is confined within a
hundred mile radius from Manchester, but the panic among beer drinkers
has spread almost -throughout the
whole country. It has been completely established that the ca*ase of
the poisoning is arsenic in the tul
phuric acid used in the manufactur*
of glucose which the English brewers
employ in the place of malt and hops
in making cheap beer. The poison
has thus far been traced to only one
establishment, which supplied glneose
sugar to several brewers in the Midlands and the north. An analysis
shows that some beers sold in saloons
contain arsenic sufficient easily to
kill any persistent drinker, as much
as one-sixth of a grain being found
in a pint. The fact that arsenic is a
cumulative poison makes it more
dangerous.���Popular Science.
