there has been no decision of the Board
of U. S. General Apprisers or the
courts as to the classification of crude
zinc ores and that question is one
whieh is primarily determined by the
Collector of Customs.
In all probability, however, the ores
would be held duitable under paragraph
183 of said act. If the ore be in the
form of red zinc ore, in olher words,
an oxide of zinc, it would be duitable
under paragraph 57 at one cent per
pound. The character of the merchandise, however, would be determihed by
the Collector of Customs and the classification governed accordingly, subject
to the protest of the importer.

Medicine Hat's Natural Gas.
As lhe natural gas supply of Alberta
is destined in the near future to play an
important part in devloping the zinc resources of the whole Kootenay country
and most especially those of the Slocan
by providing cheap fuel for zinc smelters
any information pertainig thereto is of
peculiar interest to this camp. The
Kansas smelters use a pressure oi 220
ponds in there zinc furnaces, and as
there is no question about the quantity
of gas in Alberta, and as the supply
has been proven permanent and the
quality A No. 1, the only feature about
which there could be any doubt is lhe
matter of pressure. The following
from the Winnipeg Commercial should
set at rest any doubt on this score:
"At present Medicine Hat has four
gas wells averaging 600 feet in depth.
The strongest one has a pressure of 270
pounds to the square inch; the other
three, each 225 pounds per square inch.
To give some idea of the great advantage this is to the town, the large
well, while experimenting, ran the
water plant for two days,pumping daily
500,000 gallons, and only reducing the
pressure 35 pounds to the square inch,
still leaving 235 pounds per square inch
in the 270-pound well.
The municipality owns both water
plant and gas, and is making preparations to heat and lighl lhe town. The
plant will cost, complete, about $35,000
and the council have $15,000 yearly income in sight. They have decided
upon rates for the gas as fuel which
will be equivalenf to coal at $4.00 per
ton. The Merchants Bank has purchased $32,000 of debentures at an average of 4^ per cent.
The pipe from the gas well being
directly conected with the engine of the
waterworks, there is no hanling fuel,
simply turn the tap; so lhat this municipality not only saves the price of fuel
but also lhe additional cost of handling
il. Then, think how convenient this
gas fuel will be for the inhabitants during the summer months when hurried
fires are in order, and also think of the
great saving in fuel with the present
rates Not many towns will be heated
this coming winter as cheaply as Med-
icin Hat.

dim U Not Talking Politics.
The following extracts of an inter-
view with Premier Dunsmuir by lhe
Vancouver World will be oi interest lo
those who are still guessing on the
political situation:
The Premier was unwilling to talk
politics. He believes there will be
enough talk of politics later on to justify
a rest from them at present. Asked il
lhe reporls about his intended resignation were true he said the authors oi
such reports seemed lo know more ab-
����t his intentions than he did himself.
He did not feel called upon at lhe present lime, however to deny or confirm
lhe report. While in England the
Premier says he was made to feel thai
British Columbia's importance is recognized abroad, but when asked by lhe
reporter  what he had   to say in regard
to the alleged backward attitude of o[d
country capitalists towards British Columbia on account of labor legislation
and instability of government, he said:
"Nothing; that is getting into politics
again, and as I told you before I am
not talking politics at the present time'
Can you ride a bucking pony;
Can you throw the diamond hitch; ���
Can you climb where it is stoney;
Do you-dizzy at a pitch;
Have you got the nerve to travel
When your muscles all are lame
And the trail is shifting gravel;
. Are you game, boy,  are you  game?
When vour sweat rolls down in   rivers,
Soaking all your clothing thru;
When at night you shake with shivers,
As many times I do;
When an unexpected shower
Quenches every bit oi flame
And your grub gets wet and sour,
Do you think,   boy,  you'd   be game?
There'll be days when   all   is  sunshine
And there's color in the pan;
There'll be nights   when   all   the stars
Shine on a soundly sleeping man,
But there's work with   pick and shovel,
Fresh or weary, just the same.
There's no time to read a novel;
Are you game, hoy, are you game?
Then just follow me up  yonder
Far bevond the summer snow;
Show your folks at   home, by   thunder.
Thas you've got the grit 10 go,
And if we happen not to strike it���
Many failures I could name���
We will find a job, and hike it,

SANDON, OCTOBER  18, 1902.
B new moute to prosperitp.
A Market for zinc ore will bring
prosperity back to the Slocan with a
rush. The Joplin smelter men have
put up a neat corner on Missouri and
Arkansas ore, forcing the gas belt
smelters of Kansas and Missouri to go
into Colorado, Utah and Idaho to look
for a supply. Recently the demand
has become so great that the gas belt
smelters are looking north ofthe 49th
parallel for ore that will suit their
purpose. The Slocan ore is just exactly the article wanted. It carries
high values in silver and zinc and low
percentages of sulphur and iron. It is
worth more money, is more easily
handled and will suit the smelters better than .the Leadville, Reco or Creede
product from Colorado. There are
many properties in the Slocan which
are in a position right now to become
steady producers of zinc and there are
many other propositions which could
be made zinc producers in the near
future. It is no flight of imagination
to state that the zinc resources of the
Slocan are worth  more  than the lead.
At the present time there is only
one question to be settled ; that is the
matter of a freight rate to the gas belt
smelters. If the Great Northern can
see its way clear to give a ten-dollar
rate to Kansas points the trade will
commence the day the rate is put in
force. A production of at least 50 tons
a day will be immediately available.
This is a tonnage which the Great
Northern is not likely to overlook,
and as freight rates are usually levied
on a basis of what the traffic will
stand, the rate will be forthcoming.
It need not be expected that the
Canadian Pacific will be satisfied to
see this large tonnage hauled out of its
territory over foreign roads. When
the C. P. R. wakes up to the fact that
it is being beaten out it will undoubtedly make a move to get a share of the
trade, and the facilities at its hand are
excellent. Over in Alberta, in the
neighborhood of Medicine Hat, there
are gas fields as good, if not better,
than any in Indiana, Kansas or Texas.
On the Pacific Coast there is a market
for 2000 tons of zinc a   year at   $1 a
hundred better than New York prices.
This extra dollar, combined with the
fact that any smelter built in Idaho,
Washington or Montana would have
to use coal fuel, would more than offset the United States duty of $1.50 a
hundred, and would place a Canadian
smelter at Medicine Hat in a position
eminently more favorable than any
smelters in United States territory,
either north or south.
There is no doubt whatever that
the demand for zinc is going to make
this camp more prosperous than it ever
was before. The market for zinc is
brisk and all the indications point to a
long siege of high prices. The Slocan
has the stuff to supply the market and
the day of prosperity is at hand.
���   Building up Canada.
Honorable J. Israel Tarte has
given his proposed western tour an indefinite postponement ; which goes to
prove that J. Israel is a wise man.
Protection may look good to the
smoky east where live the fat manufacturers who love a cinch and the underpaid factory hands who should know
better ; but if Tarte or any of his
disciples should happen to stray so tar
from their home ranch as to stray into
these latitudes with that song and
dance entitled "Building up Canada"
he would in all probability get up
against the man with the blue overalls (protection 35 per cent) who drills
with Sheffield steel (protection 30 per
cent) by the light of Chicago candles
(protection 25 per cent), shoots with
California giant (protection 3 cents a
pound), loads the ore on Truax���
made in Denver���ore cars (protection
25 per cent), runs it out to the tunnel
mouth on Colorado Mine supply Company eight pound rails (protection 30
per cent), trams it to the mill on a
Leischen���made in St. Louis���wire
rope) protection 25 per cent), mills it
in an E. P. Allis-���made iu Milwaukee
���concentrator (protection 25 per cent)
sacks it in Bombay jute (protection 20
per cent) and ships it over the C. P. R.
(average bonus $11,760 per mile) to
the Trail smelter (bonus $5 a ton)
where lead fetches the London market
price (free trade) less $1 a hundred
(stolen by the smelters and   railways.)
Oh, no, Israel, ma chere, don't
come. "Canada for the Canadians" is
a beautiful chorus, but when sung in
B. C. it requires a trifling explanation
as to who are meant by "the Canadians." There is a sneaking suspicion
in these parts that the Canadians who
are to benefit by the high tariff system
of building up Canada do not live in
the mining camps of the west.
If Wilfred Laurier can pull any
strings over his cabinet at   all he will
keep Tarte east of the lakes and send
his free trade members out wist/
Their song makes a nicer echo in the
B (Sood Qkan for the Sob.
On his own responsibility, Col.
Prior has employed Rod Tolmie as
deputy minister of mines. There is
no such office as deputy minister of
mines, and no appropriation has boon
made to pay the wages, but a little
thing like that don't bother Prior.
It goes without saying that the
Colonel did not hire Tolmie to do any
work���not if he knows Tolmie. Consequently there must be other reasons
why Tolmie is put on the government
payroll. What are they ? If the Colonel hired Rod Tolmie in' order to increase his own popularity in the
Kootenay, he is out on a limb. Hut
if he hired Tolmie to handle the corruption department at his next election,
then the Colonel is onto his game.
Tolmie cot fired from the record ollice
in Nelson some three years ago tor
good and sufficient reasons. He spent
the next six months herding scabs for
the Mine Owners' Association, trying
to break the Slocan strike. Since then

Cpclone TtZemedp for Strikes.
John Bough, Sandon's most celebrated sociologist, has been carefully
studying the coal strike of late with a
view to evolving a scheme of settlement. He believes that Mayor Hurley of Salem is on the right track when
he proposes hanging the coal operators
up until they admit the efficacy o\
arbitration, but the hanging method is
a trifle crude and by no means modern.
Mr. Bough offers as an amendment to
this a liberal application of the cyclone
remedy. He explains that cyclones,
like electricity and gravity, arc due entirely to natural causes, and alter
carefully investigating these cause1 he
proposes to create conditions controlling the latent energy in the elements
in such a manner as to cause a cyclone
wherever required. Recent experiments in Kansas and Nebraska have
proven that cyclones are an irresistabie
argument, and Mr. Bough proposes to the papstreak, Sandon, B. C, October 18
try them on in the strike region in
Pennsylvania to see if a well directed
twister would not change things around
a little down there. The first business
cyclone will be introduced on the right
of way ofthe Philadephia <9t 3 'iding,
following very closely in the <*ear of
Mr. Truesdale's private car. If arrangements can be made to have Mr.
Baer and Mr. Morgan and Mr. Oli-
phant on the same car, of course it
will centralize matters considerably
and save development work in other
quarters. The cyclone will be arranged
so as to confine operations exclusively
to the railway company's property and
if a severe application is found necessary the steel, ties and roadbed could
be lifted out of the strike region altogether and spread around the Hole in
the Wall country or up in the MacKenzie river basin.
A few miles of this remedy, properly applied, would no doubt bring the
coal presidents to terms and as the
cyclone would be no longer necessary
it could be given a six months' hoist.
Ol coure if Mr. Baer and Mr. Trucs-
dale still remained firm and reftsed to
arbitrate it might become necessary to
accelerate the action ot the cyclone
slightly so as to overtake their private
car and transfer it to the Sargasso sea.
The remedy could   then   be   tried on
their successors.
The Nelson Board of Trade is at
again. W. A. Galliher, M. P., has
called for a meeting of the lead mine
owners in order that he might get
authentic representations at first hand
on the tariff question from the men
who actually have their money tied up
in lead mines. At a session of the
Nelson board on Tuesday evening that
aggregation threatened to take the
management of this meeting out of the
mine owners' hands and arrange dates,
place of meeting and no doubt the
personnel of the representation. If
the Nelson board of trade had a lick of
sense on earth it would take a tumble
that the very reason for which this
meeting is requested is in order to get
a meeting of the mine owners that will
not be dominated by the Nelson board
of trade or the Kaslo board of trade or
any other board of trade or association
of boards of trade or by produce merchants, real estate agents and liquor
dealers who hope by tariff manipulation to get a monopoly fastened on the
country which will build up Nelson,
Trail or Kaslo at the expense of the
If the Nelson board of trade
wants to help the lead mining industry
it can not do better than go 'way back
and sit down, and let the men who
own the mines make their own representations. They are by no means
illiterates, and they do not require the
assistance of officious interlopers whose*
interests are diametrically opposed to
their own interests.
H. E. Croasdaile says he did
not go to Halifax to represent the
smelters at the meeting of the Manufacturers Association. If this is the
case Mr. Croasdaile should have stayed
home ; he certainly did not represent
the men who have their money in
mines. Furthermore, Mr. Croasdaile
insinuates he does not read The Paystreak. This is Mr. Croasdaile's misfortune. Had he carefully perused
these colums he would have been
thoroly familiar with the Slocan idea,
and would not have made such a consummate ass-of himself as he did at
Halifax. Mr. Croasdaile has our

Editor of The I'*y*< renk:
Dear Sir:
I have heen informed thai the
Hritish Columbia mineral exhibits,
which created such a huge impression
at Paris, Glasgow, and later al lhe
Royal Exchange in London, are lo be
packed up and sent to the Victoria,
H. C. museum.
I am surprised that the government
could ever conceive such an absurdity.
The specimens were loaned or given for
exhibition purposes abroad. Then
what good will they do if placed in the
Victoria museum? 'lhe main object of
the exhibits being to shew the mineral
resources of British Columbia abroad,
to a public which, up to recently, knew
nothing or very little about our province, and which practically means advertising abroad, then what benefit
will the country derive by advertising
at home?
There are m; ny ways of using tie
whole exhibit to good purpose. Wl.y
noi send it to lhe Si. Louis exposition
and if not used for exhibition purposes
later, the Imperial Institute or any
other prominent location in London
where they would always be before the
eyes of lhe British and foreign publ'c,
would certainly be a b. t er place than
the Victoria museum.
Yours truly
In the   foregoing   letter   Mr.    Ginf?-
berger has drawn attention   to an   un-
warranted act on lhe part ofthe British
Columbia  department   of   mines,   aid
the public owes him a vole   of   thanks
for pointing   it   out.    Everyone in the
Slocan will remember tlie circumstances
aonnected with this exhibit.    It cost a
lol of money, time and   trouble  to collect it, and the exhibit itself was se< o (1
to none on earth.    It  created   a sens; -
tion in  Paris,   Glasgow   and   London,
and thousands of people who had never
before heard of  British   Columbia   became impressed with the mineral possibilities  of   this   province.      Now   the
government   proposes   to   take it from
the one place in the  world where it can
d) the most good   and   take  il   to the
museum in Victoria.    This is  not only
an utterly absurd and childish thing to
do, but il is a distinct breach   of faith,
as the parties who contributed   the exhibits at their own expense  did   not do
so to have them hidden in  the museum
at Victoria, but to advertise the mineral
resources of British Columbia  in Great
Britain and Europe.    The  department
should rescind this order and leave the
exhibit   where   it   is,   in a prominent
place in the greatest money market on
