laws, statistics of the mineral production, a summary ofthe progress of the
mining industry during the past year
and a general compilation of condensed
information about the mineral province
of Canada. The writing is good, the
press work is excellent and the cuts are
brot out in a manner which proves that
the government printers are onto their
job. Advertising pavs, and good advertising and plenty ot it is as good an
investment as the government can
make.
STAR WILL CONTINUE OPERATINS
Reports that the Big Property Will
CIohc Down are Unfounded.
Street rumors have been rife during
the past few days to the effect that the
the Slocan Star would be closed down
today, Questioned regarding the
matter yesterday, Byron N. White
stated that the reports were without
foundation. No move has been made
to .dose either the mine or the mill.
Another month's supplies were purchased yesterday the same as usual and
Mr. White stales that no date has been
set for a shut down. The Slocan Star
ore is being shipped to the Puget
Sound Reduction Company. The mill
is handling 100 tons of rock a day
which turns out 20 to 25 tons of ore.
The mine is in a better state of development now than al any previous stage
in the history of the company. There
are 120 men on the payroll.
A Deal for The Washington.
Sidney Norman of Spokane and John
L. Retallack visited the Washington
mine on Monday to examine the property. Norman represents a company
of Cleveland and Toledo capitalists who
intend purchasing the Washington.
John L. Retallack represents the control ofthe Washington company.
The Washington property, which is
located in McGuigan basin, consists of
three claims, the Washington, Washington Fraction and I. C. It was
staked in '92 by Bill Lynch, an old-
time prospector who discovered several
ledges in this camp that summer.
Major Montgomery, Kd. Mann and
John L. Retallack afterward acquired
interests and opened the properly up,
selling it out to a Spokane company
for $50,000. During the next two
vears lhe property paid for itself and
for a mill and tramway which were
built on the claims, besides paying
$30,000 dividends. The management
sloped the properly out without keeping
development properly in advance, and
in the fall of'96 the mine was closed
down. In '97 a deal with lhe British
Colonial Gold Fields Syndicate was
contemplated but was not put thru.
Since that time the properly has been
inactive, altho the mill made some
short runs on ore from the Great Western property.
Sidney Norman spent most of last
winter in Ohio promoting the company
which will purchase the property. He
is reported to have strong financial
backing and a program of extensive
development will follow the purchase.
Retallack and Norman left for Spokan
on Wednesday.
Last Chance Closed Doton.
All the force working on ore at the
Last Chance was laid off on Wednesday. The stopes are too wet to carry
on mining and no ore will be taken out
until the seepage subsides.
Work on the Galena tunnel will be
continued with a force of 15 men.
This tunnel is now in 1300 feet and it
is calculated to lap lhe Galena, vein at
i.Soo feet, giving a depth of 900 feet on
the vein*. This tunnel is 7x9 in the
clear and is one of the finest pieces of
mining engineering in the Slocan
country. Air power from the Noble
Five plant is being used and at the
present rate of progress the led^e will
be reached within   the   next   100 days.
John O. Regan, superintendent of
the Last Chance, is of the opinion that
the Galena ledge is a continuation of
the Antoine vein. Should this prove
true, it will be an important epoch in
the history of mining in the Slocan
when the ledge is opened up at the 900
foot deplh as it will prove the continuity of Slocan ledges beyond doubt.
Paijne Closed.
The Payne  mine  was   closed  down
on Monday last and   the   whole  force
laid off.    The  anual   meeting   of   the
company took place in Montreal on the
23-id and it is  understood   that   a new
set of directors was elected  and  that a
complete change  of management will
follow.

i THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, JL'NE I,
The World's Need.
What this troubled old world needs
Is less o' quibbling over creeds,
Fewer words and better deeds.
Less of "Thus and so shall you
Think and act, and say and do."
More of "How may I be true ? "
Less of wrangling over text;
Less of creed and code perplexed;
More of charity un vexed.
Less of shouting "1 alone
Have a right to hurl the stone."
More of heart that will condone.
Less of ruling:    ,'Here!    You must
Hold this tenet, wrong or just."
More of patient, helpful trust.
Less of microcopic scan
Of the faults of fellow man,
More of brave, uplifting plan.
Less of dogma; less pretense,
More belief that Providence
Will sanctify our common sense.
More of chord of kindness blent
O're the discords of dissent.
Then will come the great content.
"Just to be and to do good."
Simple, plain for him who would.
A creed that may be understood.

SANDON, JUNE i,  iqoi.
For some time past it has been
evident to wise heads in the Presbyterian fold that the Calvanistic doctrines promulgated in their creeds are
out of date, and a systematic effort has
long been under way to have these
dogmas revised in order that they may
be more palateable to modernized ideas
of religion. The American general
assembly, now in session at Philadelphia, has the matter under advisement and a hot altercation is on which
may result in a split in Presbyterian-
ism. Old-fashioned Presbyterians believe in fore-ordination, a red hot hell
and the permanent damnation of un-
baptised infants. They picture an
' individual, personal man-God doing
a perpetual glorification business in a
material, gold-paved, pearl-lined kingdom come, and they entertain several
other ancient superstitions which were
probably about the correct thing to
teach three or four hundred years atro.
m> O
The new agitation calls for a revision of these teachings and the substitution of something more broad and
liberal. A plebiscite of 233 Presbyteries was taken to get a general
average of the feeling. Fifty of the
bunch stood pat for the old dogmas.
Over two-thirds wanted various creedal
changes. Several others of them did
not answer the call, but one Presbytery
declared for an alternative creed. Considered from an ecclesiastical point of
view, this last proposal should be
satisfactory; if a convert didn't fancy
one creed he could select the other.
Curiously enuf no member ofthe
assembly nor no voice from the Presbyteries was heard in favor of dropping
creads, dogmas and confessions of
faith altogether. Formulated religion,
it seems, is necessary to salvation.
Belief must take the form of words, be
woven into prayers, creeds and rituals
and be expressed verbally in a Presbyterian accent before the sinner can hope
to be saved. This may appear perfectly reasonable to orthodox Presbyterian members of the assembly but it
looks a little raw to an outsider. How
about several hundred million people
on earth who never heard of the Presbyterian faith? Will they get canned
when they try to pass the pearly gate ?
Then acrain, the general assembly may
shuffle the creed as often as tin* d. C.
legislature does the Mineral Act.
Suppose a man failed to read the papers
and should die with a second-hand
confession of faith on his lips ; is he
ticketed for the lower stopes on this
account ?
Suppose some fellow should come
forward and tell the world that creeds
are not a manifestation of holiness ;
that churches are a mockery, and that
true religion cannot be expressed in
jargon, mumbled at appointed times in
specified places ! Suppose lie offered a
new philosophy which recommended a
spiritual and mental striving for the
good and beautiful things in life, and
renounced the tabulated, specialized
doctrines which are expounded to order
by professional theologians for the
benefit of audiences which are hypocritical social clubs rather than congregations of truth-seekers ! Suppose
he did this, what kind of a reception
would he g"et from such sticklers for
ritual as compose the Presbyterian
general assembly? He would prob-
ablv ijet about the same kind of a deal
mi *T>
that the Galiieean carpenter got from
the scribes ami Pharisees some nineteen hundred vears agfo. He would
be persecuted and reviled and his name
would be anathematized in every temple and cathedral in the land.
The Christian church of today is
as far from the teachings of Jesus of
Nazareth as east is from west. No
better evidence of this can be found
than the godless scrap of 640 members
of the Presbyterian general assembly
in Philadelphia over the words and
formulas which seekers for salvation
shall utter to square themselves with
God.
According to newspaper reports,
Bernard Macdonald is fifoing" to force
a fiVht on the Western Federation. A
larp*e force of men has been laid off at
the Northport smelter and at the Le
Roi mine with the evident calculation
of breaking up the labor organizations.
Macdonald is spoiling for a fight and
he will certainly get it. All the money
that the Whitaker Wright corporation
and the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate can dig up will not be a circumstance to what it will cost to drive the
Miners' Union out of Rossland. If
the owners of the Le Roi and Centre
Star want to conserve their own interests they will give Barney Macdonald
and Edrnond V. Kirby the g. b. without delay.
it was figured that an increased metallic
circulation would cut down the amount
of bank paper in   use.      It   was   also
pointed out that   the  country   will be
loser   on   the   mint.     Last  year the
Manchester royal mint coined $519,000
of fractional  silver  for  Canada.    The
silver from   which this coin  was made
cr>st $213,000. The royal mint charged
$15,570 (three per cent) for  doing the
job.    Freight, brokerage charges, etc.,
brot the total cost up   to  $233,528, or
45 per cent,   of the face   value  ofthe
coin.    The  difference was profit.    As
the   Dominion already   gets this profit
of the difference between the cost ofthe
coin   and   its   face   value, all   that the
Canadian government can hope to save
bv the home mint is   the freight to and
from the   royal   mint.      There   is no
profit on gold   coinage   and   Canada's
total copper coinage is   less than $40,-
000 a vear.    The annual cost of maintaining the mint will be about S75,000.
The advantage of a Canadian mint
is that there will be a  home market for
gold and silver.   Had Fielding decided
to mint   Canadian   gold   coins   there
would have been   the   sentimental   advantage of being able to   gaze on gold
with a maple leaf superscription.    But
Fielding didn't do that;   the bankeis
didn't want him to.     So the   Canadian
mint   wiil   coin    English   sovereigns,
Queer government, tliis, that  will  run
.   mm- *> ' '
a Canadian mint at a loss, making
English gold ftn* fear that if it made
Canadian gold the Canadian gold
might gel into circulation in Canada
and disturb the monetary equilebrium.
When we recollect that Canada is a
gold standard country and that there
is somethmglike ISi 5,000,000 of English
gold cached in the Ottawa treasury to
back the banks' paper, with which Canada transacts business, it does look
funny. Guess it's all right, tho;
Fielding saws it is.
REFINERY rumors are already floating westward from Montreal, Toronto
and Ottawa. One from the capital
city is to the effect that the Canadian
Pacific Smelting Companv will immediately commence the construction ol ;���
lead refinery at Trail and of a lew
works at Montreal. This is cheering
news.
Thi-: Dominion government has
at last succumbed to the agitation for a
Canadian mint. Every banker in the
country was against it, mainly because
SOMEONE has blundered in Nelson
John Houston is roasting Jimmy
Wilks in the Columns,of the Tribune.
Better revise that, lohn. If you have
a grievance against Jimmy just tai��
him into the editorial den and explain
matters quietly, even if you have [0
break all the office furniture in making
yourself understood. But for Gods
sake don't quarrel. It don't inspir?

I THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, JUNE I,
THE CELEBRATIOMS.
Silcerton and Kaslo Both had a
Looehj Time. Sandon qot beat
at Baseball and made a Stand-
off at Football.
The 24th of May was a beautiful day
in the Slocan. The metrological department shipped in a wide streak sif
sunshine and Silverton and Kaslo celebrated under tlie smiling rays of
a summer solar system. The Kaslo
train pulled out first and took nearly
150 Sandon excursionists to the future
smelter city, including the band and
the base nail club.
Kaslo's celebration was a good deal
like former ones. The morning was
taken up with Caledonian sports and a
hose reel race between a couple of local
teams. About noon tiveorsix hundred
people and a band with white pants
arrived from Nelson on the steamers
Kaslo and Kokanee. In the afternoon a football game between Nelson
and Kaslo teams was played on the
recreation ground. The game was a
furious encounter from the drop of the
hat and when Sam Hunler went down
before the onslaught of a burly Nelson
kicker the band played "T'row him
down .McC'luskey" and (be Nelson bovs
said things were getting good. At the
end of time lhe players looked hot and
dusty and (ine rubberneck who seemed
to savy said that Kaslo won tiie game.
Judging hy the applause lhat followed
this result was .satisfactory to the
audience, altho there were a few Nelson ladies present at the time.
The baseball game was a hot thing.
"Big Kid" Desmond pitched for Kaslo
in the start out. Kid says he pitched
hay at Pullman seven years ago and
was right in training, which was probably true altho the girih of his pants
did nol indicate that he was over
trained. Adam Ksh was behind the
bat and Doc Rogers played lirst. The
rest of the outfit, with the exception
Ed Giegerieh, merely rubbernecked
lhe game. Ed got action several times
at short and did some good work.
"Spud" Murphy delivered the .mull-
worms'for Sandon and Compeau held
his old sit behind the bat. lien Eoote
played first, Richards short and Tony
Maybaver centre field. The rest ofthe
team was composed of Willies who
couldn't play the game. Eor the lirst
three innings it was a good game, but
after that Murphy's arm gave out and
the band played the cake walk for
Kaslo when Hen Eoote took the box
Dill took Desmond's place in the fourth
and fanned several Sandon boys with
strait balls���high balls are their specialty. At the end of the sixth the
score stood 12 to 5 in favor of Kaslo
and as the Sandon boys didnl like to
keep the audience away from supper
they let it go at that.
In the evening there was a dance at
the Kaslo hotel which nearly everybody took in. The fight between Law-
lor and Madden did not take place,
owing to a lack  of enthusiasm.    The
report that Willie Richards was looking
for a match with Lawlor is not correct.
Lawlor is not in Willie's class. Most
of the Sandon boys got home this
week.
The Silverton celebration look about
a hundred Sandonites down to Slocan
lake and gathered in everything moveable from the other lake towns, including the Sloian City hand. Silverton
and Slocan City teams played football
in the morning and Silverton cleaned
up the game by 4 to o. In the afternoon Sandon met New Denver in a
game that was a miniature cyclone.
When time was up the score stood 1 to
1 and the referee told them lo stay with
it until the deadlock was broken, but
at the end of 10 minutes Denver wilted
and Sandon got the game by default.
The championship between Sandon
and Silverton was not played as there
was not time to pull it off.
After lhe football game Denver and
Silverton played baseball and Denver
got il where Katie wore the beads.
Silverton imported a south paw from
Three Forks who razzle dazzled the
Denver batters and fanned them out in
alphabetical order. Of course that
wasn't fair���al least, so the sporting
editor of the Ledge says���and Denver
is going to do up the Stlvertonians in a
cri.sp brown parcel at a later date.

EW WHITE LEAD PROCESS.
\K
mention btj  itliich   Lead can   be
Corroded    for  One-Third   the
Former Cost.   Will Recolution
i-ze the InduHtnj.
It seenm thai the problem of how io
k.,vi lime i" lhe manufacture of white
lend ha* at lasl  heen solved.    Upon
jhis  problem .1 VMl   amount   of labor
lias been Bpent,  and many  chemical
-,rocesses and mechanical devices have
nvolved out of a long line- sif experiments only to have lhe results  rejected
Ihv the trade ax unsatisfactory.
White lead and linseed oil make paint
^tnd   lor  tliis purpose   150.000 tons of
vliile lead is annually consumed.    The
lead tnisi, or the National Lead Com-
rmnv. which is its coporate name, own-
fully*60per cent  ofthe American
k-hite lead factories, and two or three
Mher lompanies outside sif the trust at
he present time  produce almost the
���ii,iii supply of white lead nnd make-
III , ording to ti'1-' old fashioned Dutch
���process, liven new effort to find a
{substitute for lhe product ofthe Dutch
pro ess has shown that there is no
other wa) 'h.tn by corroion to make a
while lead which painters will accept.
But it seems 10 have been readily as-
sumed that .1 thoro corrosion could be
effected only by the slow process.
\t all events, a new process has been
found. It is a process ol corrosion. It
acts upon the blue lead in precisely lhe
same way as the old Dutch process
acts, but it does in five davs what by
lhe Dutch process requires from three
1 ��� f ��� n* months.
Wntte    lead    is   carbon.He    of  load.
That is, it is ordinary blue lend corroded
by carbonic acid gas. The blue lead is
found sometimes pure, ;t> in the Missouri lead fields, and often in combination with silver and copper. It is
smelted into small blocks which are
known as pig lead, and which in that
form are the raw material ofthe white
lead factories. By the primitive process which still obtains in the production of almost the entire supply of white
lead now being marketed, the \i\g lead
is first melted and is ejected from the
melting pot thru a tube and spigot at
the bottom of the pot about an inch in
diameter onto an endless chain each
link oi which is a mould having the
genera] appearance of a waffle-iron.
In the shape thus assumed by the
melted lead, it is called a "buckle" the
purpose of giving it this waffle-like
shape being to provide as much surface
as possible for the carbonic acid gas to
attack.
The buckles, laid one by one, in
earthern pots, are "stacked" in a room
of convenient size and under each pot
is a small basin containing acetic acid.
The acetic acid basins are surrounded
by wet tan bark and the heat thereby
generated, acting upon the fumes of
the acetic acid, creates the carbonic
acid gas, which eating thru the blue
lead, produces the white corrosion
known  as white lead.    The  process of
corrosion occupies from 90 to 100 days,
and even then the blue lead has not
been completely corroded. It is not
safe to continue the process much
longer than ninety days, however, for
after corrosion a deleterious change
occurs and that portion of the lead
which has first corroded becomes crys-
talized, and all this hard and gritty
material must be removed.
It is to be seen, therefore, that while
this primitive method sif manufacture is
thus far the only sine that has produced
a white lead entirelv adapted to the
requirements of commerce there are
nevertheless in the method serious
drawback and defects. Most serious
ol all is the amount of time consumed.
Another is the labor and expense involved in separating the crystallized
material from that which is simply
corroded. Tlie third is the considerable restdium, usually as much as 30
per cent., of blue lead which even at
the end of the ninety-Jay period has
been unaffected by the carbonic acid.
Each of these defects has heen reached
and overcome bv the new process.
This new process is the invention of
J. VY. Bailey, a practical mechanic of
great experience in white lead manufacture. Its product, as in the case of
the Dutch process, is carbonate of lead.
The only difference is lhat when the carbonic acid treatment is ended, the blue
lead is completely crrodedi five days
only have been consuuieJ and no crystallization whatever has occured. The
pig lead is melted precisely as by the
older process. It is driven from the
melting pot by the force sif its own
gravity thru a short horizontal nozzle,
as in the former case, bul instead o,
running out into the waffle shaped
buckles it is forced thru a thin sleel
plate, in which the horizontal nozzle is
made to terminate, the sleel plate being
perforated with about two hundred
minute holes not more than one-hundredth part of an inch in diameter.
There thus fall into the air, cooling
immediately, tine metallic fibres which,
dropping upon trays each holding
about fifty pounds of fibre and permitting free circulation thru the entire
mass, are passed swiftly thru an 8 pet-
cent, solution of acetic acid and then
stacked. This entire process is mechanical and automatic and a great
amount of hand labor is saved. The
carbon dioxide has to operate upon a
minute lead fibre instead of upon a
large, thick buckle. Practically, therefore, the exposed lead is all surface.
Every particle is reached by the gas
immediately and in four or five days it
has been entirely corroded. There is
no blue lead remaining and the further
process or separation by which ruder
the old method the crystallized pa 'xles
must be removed is unnecessary. Under the most careful microscopical examination nothing is disclosed in the
Bailey product except pure white lead
and that 2 or 2l/2 per cent, of water
which is a necessary ingredient of the
best white lead product. The economies thus accomplished are enormous.
The total cost of manufacture by the
Dutch process averages from $13 to $18
per ton of dry product. When it is
said that the total cost per ton by the
new process averages something less
than $5 the effect of Mr. Bailey's invention is seen to be far reaching.
Even at the heavy and fluctuating cosl
of between $13 and $18, hovever,
white lead manufacture has been immensely profitable and the annual market increases in huge prportion.
The owners of the Bailey process
have gone into its development with
confidence and energy. They have
bought a large tract of land in the well
known Missouri lead fields on which
several mines of known value have
been located. They have made themselves much the largest owners of lead-
bearing ores in this famous lead territory. Their property adjoins that of
the St. Joe mine which is one of the
heaviest lead producers in the world.
In this immediate neighborhood are
the properties of the Lead Trust and
also the areas recently purchased bv
the Messrs. Guggenheim whose association with the Smelting Trust has
heen announced.
With the new process and these extensive mines as a portion sif their
assets and sustained by large capital
these men have recently organized the
Union Lead and Oil Company. It is
their purpose to take out their own
ores reduce them on the spot by concentrating plants, four of which, each
of 2,000 tons capacity, are presently lo
be constructed and convey the product
by railroad to St. Louis. The company's while lead works are to be
located in Brooklyn. The operation of
capital that by the new process can be
turned over four times a month as
against that which, to produce similar
results must be locked up for nearly
tour months, foretells a revolution in
the white lead business.

R. C  Clute,  D. J. Munn  snd wife,
Chris Foley, F. J. Dean  and A. Crawford  were a party who visited  Sandon
Yesterday.    Messrs. Clute,   Munn and
Foley   are   the   Chinese   commission.
F. J.   Dean  is secretary for the  outfit
and A. Crawford is stenographer. They
came in on  the  K. & S. and  intended
taking  commission   evidence   but  the
stenographer fell off the sidewalk while
on the way to the hotel and goi shaken
up so  that  he c ">uld not  write, consequently the proceedings in Sandon were
limited.    The commission will conclude
taking  evidence  in   Kaslo   today  and
will   leave   for   Puget   Sound   where a
comparison   of conditions   existing   in
canneries and lumber camps there will
be made with similar industries in B.C.
In many ofthe Washington   mills and
canneries no Chinese are employed and
Chris Foley  desires to show  that these
institutions  are just  as   prosperous as
similar   enterprises   in    B.   C.    where
orientals are  employed.    The report of
the  commission will   not be  in for two
months,  as it  will take   that  long  to
transcribe  the  notes  and   compile the
report.    Chris Foley will go to Ottawa
to assist in preparing the report.
