Deputy    Attorney    General    Says    An    Election
Warrant  Will   Be   Issued���But  Does
Not   Say   When.
The deputy attorney general has come to the conclusion that a warrant can legally be issued for the
election of two aldermen to fill the vacancies caused by
the resignation of Messrs. Duffy and Stein. The
warrant for an election will be issued by order in
council, but the letter does not state when. Following
is the letter :
C.  E.  Lyons, City Clerk,
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of
your communication of tlie 11th instant, respecting the
vacancies in the Sandon municipal council. It is quite
clear that the li.Hitenant-governor-in-council cannot
issue a warrant authorizing the holding of an election
of aldermen in the place of Messrs. Jalland and
Folliott, as the offices of these aldermen have not been
* declared vacant. An order-in-council will be passed
authorizing the holding of an election to fill the
vacancies created by the resignation of Messrs. Duffy
and Stein, I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient
servant, H. A.  Maclean,
Deputy Attorney General.

About the Voters' Lists
There seems still to be a good deal of
misunderstanding about the revision of
the voters' lists and some Kootenay
papers are raising a false alarm.
That the lists will be closed against
further registration after Monday, the
29th, is perfectly true, but these lists
will never be used again except in case
of a by-election, which is not at all likely
to occur in the Slocan. When the
house is dissolved and a new election
called for all lists will be cancelled and
an entirely new registration called for.
Consequently any registrations made
now would be wiped out when the
house dissolves.

Many rumors have been circulated
and much speculation has been indulged in, as to what will happen in
the political world upon the Hon.
James Dunsmuir's return lo British
Columbia. It has been announced
that he would tender his resignation
as premier and would recommend
that Colonel E. G. Prior, minister of
mines in the present cabinet, be
called upon to form a government.
With the originators of this information the wish was doubtless father to
the thot, but they will be disappointed. We have it on absolutely

James Dunsmuir will not resign,
but that he will meet the house early

How   the    Tarilf   on   Mining    Supplies
Works Out
There are no mining candles made in
Canada. The duly on candles is 25
per cent. There are no mining rails
made in Canada. The duty on rails is
30 per cent. There are only two
powder companies doing business in
British Columbia. They employ 20
white men and a bunch of Chinamen.
The factories are owned by American
companies and the profits go to San
Francisco. The duty on dynamite is
three cents a pound.
The mining industry in British Columbia is forced to pay the specified
duties on these three articles, and there
is no way to escape paying except by
quitting mining. Yet the duties do
not in any way protect Canadian industries The first two articles are not
made in Canada, consequently there are
ho Canadian industries to protect. The
last article is made in Canada by San
Francisco firms which have taken advantage of the tariff on dynamite to
form a trust and charge mine owners
three times what explosives are worth
and twice what they sell for just across
the line in Montana and Idaho.
This is how the protective policy is
"Building up Canada." Legitimate
industries like mining, farming, fishing
and lumbering are loaded up with the
expense of a tarilf which is designed to
create und foster a cluster of artificial
industries. In many cases these "home
industries" do not even exist, as is the
case of candles and rails. In most
cases those that do are designed on the
big mitt principle; they are operated to
gouge the producer of raw material, as
is the case with the dynamite monopoly,
in all cases where the tariff creates an
indust the damage done to the country is incalculably greater than the
benefit derived". It is impossible to increase the wealth of a nation by seizing
money which is the rightful profit of
one industry and bestowing it on
another industry which has no valid
title to existence. An industry which
requires protection is a loss lo the
country. It is a barnacle which impedes progress. Canada's hope lies in
a low tariff which will permit her mining, farming, lumbering, fishing and
kindred industries to be  developed  to
their limit. These are the industries
that pay the big wages, that open up
the country that encourage immigration
and around which are built the nation's
happy homes. Make these industries
prosperous and the nation will prosper.
In the prosperity of her natural industries the manufacturing industry must
inevitably share. If Canada's tariff
were cut in two tomorrow, or entirely
cancelled, the aggregate of her manufactures would not decrease one dollar.
The burst of prosperity which would
follow an unhampered trade would
make Canada the most desirable field
in the world for manufacturing
And to revert to the original proposition, if Canada had free trade the
mining industry in British Columbia
would be incalculably greater than that
of Colorado or the Transvaal. Powder,
candles, rails, mining machinery and
everything else necessary to the development of the industry would be made
right in the country because the men
on the ground could manufacture as
cheap as anyone else on earth and
would save the freight. The tariff, instead of forcing manufacturers into
Canada by preserving the home market
keeps manufacturers oul of Canada by
destroying the industries which furnish
the market.
Better Come to Sandon
The Kootenay Mail says :
In view of the great differences in
opinion among mine owners as to the
oest remedy for the depression in the
-.ilver-lead industry, Mr. Galliher, M.P..
.vill ask them to hold a meeting to decide on the legislation they want and
instruct him accordingly.
If Galliher wants lo get the views o(
the owners of silver-lead mines he
>hould come to Sandon and meel them
himself. This is the center of the lead
mining industry in Canada and practically all the mine managers live right
here in town. Rossland, Nelson, Trail,
Kaslo and Grand Forks boards oi trade
have each busied themselves making
representations with regard to the
silver-lead industry, but they are no
more entitled to speak for the Slocan
country than Sandon is entitled lo frame
resolutions affecting the Rossland and
Boundary camps. The whole agitation
tor a tarilf on lead has come not from
within but from without the Slocan.
If Galliher attempts to hold his
meeting in Nelson or Rossland or any-
other town outside the lead district he
will find it dominated by board of trade
boosters and smelter men whose interests are antagonistic to those of the
lead mine owners. If (he meeting is
held in Sandon there will be no difficulty in making it representative.

They were swinging in the ���hammock,
Just beyond the garden walk,

With the same old hot-air talk.
As he leaned for kisses'promised,
Broke in two that hammock Ihong,
And he used the same old cuss words
That have been in vogue so long.
Will Make Pig Lead   Direct   From   the
Ore"'No Refining Necessary.
A few days ago a consignment of less
than a car of ore from the Standard
mine was shipped to Denver to be
treated by the Pohl-Croasdale process.
The inventor, Mr. Pohl, was for years
assayer for the Globe smelting works
and tested thousands of tons of Standard
ore. He believes that his new process
will treat it perfectly.
Tlie process is a simple one. The
crude ore is not concentrated, bul is
pulverized finely, mixed with salt and
roasted. Chlorine gas is generated
from the salt, which carries olf the
metals in the form of fumes. The gas
is treated to separate the various
metals, and virgin metal is produced.
If the treatment is successful, a plant
may be erected in the Coeur d' Alenes
to handle the ore. At present from 10
to 20 per cent of the value of the ore is
lost in concentration. Then, too, in
shipping the concentrates freight musi
he paid on about as much waste rock
as ore, for the concentrates carry,
roughly, about 50 per cent of lead.
Prospects for Zinc Market Good

Lanyon Zinc company of Iola, Kansas,
who has been in the Slocan for the past
two weeks looking for zinc ore, reports
that the prospects for establishing a
trade are excellent. The grade and
character of the ore is perfectly satisfactory and the only matter that remains to be arranged is the question of
freight rates. A tariff of $10 is spoken
of from Sandon to Iola, jlnd if such a
rate can he secured several hundred

of 200 tons of zinc ore a day as being

The Astonishing Accuracy of an Eastern
Trade Journal.
The Canadian Hardware and Metal
Merchant, the trade journal of lhe hardware, metal and plumbing business,
published in Toronto, has evidently
been posting itself on the lead question and B. C. geography. The following is taken from the last number:
The silver-lead mining operations in
the Slocan and Boundary districts,
Vancouver, are reported to be in the
most flourishing and prosperous condition. Within the neighborhood of
Sandon alone 50 mines have been
opened up, and the general activity and
'prosperity have "crnTnmmTCTrted- lhtH��~
selves to every branch of industry, particularly to the merchants supplying the
mines. Almost the only feature causing dissatisfaction to the mine owners
is the price received for raw lead, for
which they receive but $1.30 per ion,
while it is quoted al $4.70 in Montreal.
There are excellent prospects, however,
for a new market, owing to the rivalry
between the American Smelling company and lhe lead producers of the
Coeur d'Alene."
As ihe best feeling exists between the
mine owners and the railroad company,
the two important problems of bringing
in coke for fuel and the carrying of ores
are much facilitated. As lhe Great
Northern will probably succeed in
extending its line lo the mining district,
rales oi transportation are apt lo

TZhe tariff on Zead.
Approximately speaking, Canada
produces   one   hundred   and    twenty
million bushels of wheat per annum.
Of this amount  fifty  million   is  consumed at home.    There is a duty on
wheat of 12 cents a bushel.    Is there a
protectionist in Canada who can show
that the price paid for the fifty  million
bushels is raised one cent by reason of
the duty?    Certainly not.    The price
paid for all the wheat bot in Canada is
regulated by the price received for the
surplus shipped abroad.    Canada has
the finest flour mills,  the largest elevators and the   best  system   of water
transportation on earth, but as long as
she has a surplus to market the Liverpool price governs, and no amount of
protection can  prevent  it  from  doing
so.    It is absolutely impossible to help
the farmers of Manitoba with  a tariff.
Their only hope is for free trade which
will permit them to buy their machinery
and supplies at the right price.
This is a parallel  case to that of
the   lead   mine  owner.    As   lono- as
Canada has a surplus of lead  to   ship
the highest foreign price obtainable for
that surplus will regulate the price paid
by the smelters for the whole product.
The smelters will -not pay more,  because they do  not have  to.    A tariff
would undoubtedly be a fat   thing  for
the smelters,  but it could not be  so
arranged as to help the mine owners.
Like the farmers of Manitoba, the only
hope of the lead  mine owners lies in
free  trade  which will  permit them to
buy  machinery and   supplies   at   the
cheapest price obtainable.
per annum.    In the second place 550
tons of this is lead raised in Canada,
refined  in bond  and re-entered at 15
per cent of the cost of refining.    In
the third place lead in  Mexico fetches
the London price, less freight, and the
freight from the lead camps of Mexico
is less than from the Slocan.    Therefore  the  preachers  of  protection  are
asking  us to  believe that Canada is
flooded by 2500 tons of lead purchased
in Mexico at a higher price than that
paid by the Trail and  Hall  smelters
in the Slocan, and in order to protect
these   Canadian  smelters   from   such
ruinous opposition the government  is
asked to place a heavy duty on lead.
Yea, verily.
profit and party gain.    Corruption and
malfaescence  of office  is  rampant in
more     than    one    department,    and
bonuses, land grants, monopolies, and
favoritisms too   numerous to mention
are peddled off in vicious wastefulness
to  pirates  and  vampires  whose only
title  to  gratuity  is their readiness to
bribe representatives and   corrupt the
electorate.    We  can  find  nothing to
admire   in   any party  which tolerates
such roguery.    Canada's national disgrace is that the party in opposition is
no   better  than   the  party   in  power.
One has been true to false principles.
The   other   has   been   false   to   true
principles.    Together they are the two
thieves   between   whom    the    public
is crucified.
The Kootenaian says that lead
mined in Canada and smelted and
refined in United States, when returned
to Canada for sale as pig lead, pays 15
per cent duty.
The Kootenaian is ionorant of the
very rudiments of the matter on which
it poses as an authority.    The duty is
not 15 per cent of the value of the pig
lead,   but   15   per cent ol the cost of
refining.    Confirmation  of this statement will be found on page 112 of the
July   trade   and   navigation   returns.
The Kootenaian will also find  figures
there to show that the cost of refining
in United States is $7.40 a ton.
Fifteen per cent of $7.40 is the
duty on a ton ot pig lead made from
Canadian ore in United States.
It is too bad to have to kick  the
stilts   from   under   tlie   Kootenaian's
argument, and thereby spoil a column
of awfully heavy   editorial,   but   until
the man behind the pen on  that great
agricultural weakly learns the A.B.C.'s
of  the  case  he  tries  to  represent, he
should not have the audacity  to   pose
as an authority.
Boosters  for the lead  tariff are
alleging that  Canada is flooded with
cheap lead, mined in  Mexico and refined and corroded in   bond in  United
States.    If this were true it would not
affect  the  case in   the least from the
producers point of view, as the mine
owner would get no more for his lead
if never a pound were imported.    But
the allegation is absolutely groundless.
In the first  place the whole  importation  of lead  and  lead products from
United States is less than 3000 tons
The Nelson Tribune and  one  or
two other conservative organs allege
lhat The Paystreak is a liberal  paper.
This is defamation of character.    The
Paystreak   would   not   be   found dead
in the same street as the liberal party.
The  liberal   party has  violated every
pledge,   repudiated every promise and
outraged   every principle in the name
of   which   it   secured   office.      There
are no statesmen within its ranks.    Its
leaders are politicians with  a  corporation retainer.    Laurier is a  shuffler,
Sifton is a grafter, Tarte is a fakir and
Mulock and Charlton are hucksters of
beautiful words.    There is not a man
among them who will face up honestly
to the paramount   issues  of the  day.
The transportation question, the labor
question, the tariff question,   and   the
Oriental   question  are   "settled"    not

Premier Laurier and his government   disallowed   British    Columbia's
anti-Oriental immigration  law,  ostensibly to suit the convenience of the imperial    authorities.     Premier   Barton

Oriental legislation in spite o\   the inconvenience to the imperial authorities.
The difference is that in   Australia the

The Bobcaygeon Independent wants
the secret ballot introduced into parliament.   This would  be  the climax of
unrepresentative government.    As  the
game stands now representatives have
a four year's license in  which  to  give
away the  country's  resources.    If the
secret    ballot    were   introduced    the
electors would never know who'to turn
out at the end of the four years because
they would never know who gave them
the worst of it.    At present representatives have altogether too much  power.
It is not the secret ballot,  but the  imperative mandate and a referendum lhat
we need, so  that representatives who
did not represent could  be sent  home
and their actions nullified.    The people
usually have a fair idea of what  they
want  hut  the irresponsible system of
party government makes it imdossible
for them to get it.

On the Road to Damnation
Some years ago we had the pleasure
ot" attending a Baptist revival. During
lhe progress of the services an old
backslider who had been moving uneasily under the exhortation of the
lusty-lunged speaker, groaned out as
tho in soul agony and finally addressed
tlie congregation, saying: "Brothers
and sisters, pray for me! I feel like 1
was tfoing strait to hell !" "Glory!
Glory!" came from all the church members. "Help me, brothers and sisters,"
continued the penitent one, "I know I
am on lhe road lo damnation J" The
congregation felt thai song was necessary and a sturdy backwoodsman
spiritedly roared out the opening lines
ofthe soul-stirring old hymn:
" If you get there before I do,
Jusi tell them I'm coming too."     N
