seems thoroly satisfied with the arrangement. He is brown, curly-haired
and lazy, but he can rustle a hand-out

when we steal the neighbors coal. He
���'as pleasant manners and good sense
and he seems to thoroly appreciate the
advantages of refined associations.
AH things considered he is a pretty
respectable dog, notwithstanding the
mystery of his past life. Guess we will
let him stay around.

There are three men at work on the

Silver in tft? Sump.
The silver market in New York and
London has broken badly during the
last few days and is declining almost at
panic rates. The latest quotation is
54 ^s. lhe lowest price recorded for
several years, and only a little above
the famous break of August, '97, when
silver got below 52 cents.
The conference between silver-lead
men and the smelter combine now
being held in New York undoubtedly
accounts for the decline. If they decide at this conference on a free and
unrestricted production of lead, the
amount of silver that will be produced
as a by-product may break the market
to 40 cents.
With lead settlements still down
around $1.40 and the refinery still in
the hazy future, the prospect for the
the immediate future in the Slocan is
not as lurid as it might be.
Vlyt miners Ball.
The annual ball of the Sandon Miners' Union on Thanksgiving night was
a repetition of foimer successes. The
Miners' ball is regarded as the leading
society event of the year and usually it
opens the season in Sandon and this
year again it holds that position.
The ball was attended by over a
hundred couple, many of whom came
from New Denver, Silverton and Na-
kusp. The music was furnished by a
local orchestra led by Thomas Duffy.
Supper was served in' the hall The
arrangements were complete in every
particular and a more enjoyable evening never was spent.

Municipal Elections.
which is all velvet to the Monitor Mines
company. On the smelter proposition
Mr. Gintzberger has been working
very quietly since last July and has now
his company organized and his capital
Kaslo is at last to realize its sweet all underwritten for carrying out the
dream.    Kaslo will have a smeller. project   in   a  business   like    manner.
Maurice Ginlzburger of the Monitor Gintzberger is a promoter from pro-
Mines has organized a company in motersville and a smelter under his
Glasgow to build, equip, and operate a management in Kaslo will mean more
smeller in Kaslo, The company, which to Sandon than it does to Kaslo
is largely comosped of stockholders of
the Monitor company, has sufficient
capital to finance the proposition and
carry it thru to a successful conclusion.
One of the best lead smelter experts in
Great Britain has been retained by the
company and he is now on his way to
the Kootenay to examine and report on
the proposition. If his report is satisfactory, which il unquestionably should
be, construction will be commenced
immediately and the smelter will be in
operation as quickly as money and the
genius of the best builders can accomplish the result.
As a smelter point Kaslo has numerous manifest advantages. Its geographical situation is such that it can
draw supplies of lead ore from the Slocan and Movie mines cheaper than any
other point. By lhe construction of the
new road to the Lardeau it has a preemption on the entire output of lead
and dry ore from that camp which is
destined to become one of the greatest
producers in British Collumbia. Kaslo's
situation on Kootenay lake gives it the
benefit of whatever competition there is
between the Canadian Pacific and
Great Northern, and its fuel supply via
the Crow's Nest is almost at hand. In
drawing the dry ore from Slocan lake
it is slightly handiepped by the roundabout haul but this is more than offset
by its proximity to the Slocan lead
mines. For the electric power required
Kaslo creek will furnish abundant inexpensive energy and the supply of
lime rock, iron, etc. is almost on the
the lownsite. The Goat River camps
and districts of Northern Idaho will
find a very convenient market for their
lead and dry ores in Kaslo and in many
other particulars the town has advantages.
The new company holds the stock
and concessions of the company organized in Kaslo abot a year ago. The
city oilers a bonus of $50,000, a free
site, free water and ��� exemption from
taxes for a period of ten years.
Maurice Gintzburger has been one of
the most successful promoters and
managers who ever came into the
Slocan country. A little over a year
ago he purchased the Monitor for
$130,000 on a bond. The property has
already repaid the investors the purchase price and there is now a showing
of about  half a  million  in the  mine,
The municipal year is drawing to a
close and the municipal tickets for next
year are being discussed. There will
he more interest taken in the city affairs
this election than ever before as there
are now many more voters than in previous years and as the enahling act
permits many more to qualify for mayor
and aldermen. The voters' lists which
close today, are also on the square
this year and there is no reason
why anyone entitled to vote should be
omitted.
It is a little early yet to state who the
canadidates will be, but a full ticket
will be presented with Robert
Cunning's name at the head if his
friends can persuade him to accept the
responsibility. It is also rumored that
Mayor Lovatt will run again. For
aldermen, none of the members of the
old council have expressed any intention to retire from the held and it is
rumored that Thos. Brown and Dr.
Gomm will also be brot out. The citizens should be able to find an efficient
council for next year���one which would
not repeat the fiascos of the year just
closing.
Socialism in Sandon.
J. A. Cameron, official organizer for
the Canadian Socialist League, was in
town Monday and organized a socialist
club. Mr. Cameron addressed a fairly
large audience in the Miner's Union
hall, explaining the theory of socialism
and inviting discussion. Mr. Cameron
is by no means a distinguished orator
but he is a successful organizer, the
Sandon Socialistic club start off with a
small but enthusiastic membership.
Regular semi-monthiy meetings will be
held to promote the cause.
Albert Dhvid says he is out of politics
for this year. His business is increasing and needs all his attention. He
has placed a stock of goods on his
shelves that would be hard to beat and
he makes them up in a style that can't
be beat. Consequence : Good business
that requires all his time.
The Nelson Daily Tribune is again
for sale on the streets of Sandon. The
local circulation agent, Wm. Carr, went
on strike a week or ten days ago and
stood off the biggest newspaper corporation in the Kootenay single handed
but the matter was amicably adjusted.
Considering his years "Billy" is a
pretty scientific striker.

Mining gloat.
Two and a quarter millon tons of salt
worth    ;��, i,350 ,000, are mined yearly
in   Britain.
Great Britain digs up ^64,000,000
worth of coal in a year, the United
States ,��34,000,000, and Germany
��35,400,000.
It is probable that the largest native
silver specimen ever found in the United
States came from the Mollie Gibson
mine, Aspen, Colorado. It weighed
378 pounds and was valued at over
$3000.
A big find of copper ore is reported on
the   property   of   the   Lake   Superior
Copper Company, situated about  forty
miles west ofSault Ste.   Marie.     It is
estimated   that   there   is   five   million
dollars worth of ore in sight.
White Cliffs, Australia is the most
important opal field in the world.
More than 2,000 men earn a hard and
precarious living by digging these
beautiful stones out of the sun-baked
clay. No sort of mining is more
laborious or more purely specuative.
Tlie digger toils from moning till night
for six months in a year, perhaps, in a
heart-breaking desert, without finding
a trace of an opal, then sunddenly he
sees something glittering that makes
him a capitalist in a few minutes.
Recently a lad from Sydney, who had
slaved and starved for nearly twelve
months without earning a penny, left
his own shaft in despiar and struck into
an abondoned claim alongside. In half
an hour he took out a stone for which
he got $5,500,and which was probably
worth double as much.
Canada's imports of Head.
The imports of lead and lead products to Canada during the month of
September were :���
Old scrap, pig and block���624,400
pounds, value, $8,556 ; bars and sheets
���138,500 pounds, value, $4,314; manu
factures of lead���38,201, pounds value,
$1 585 ; shot and bullets���42b pounds,
value $42 ; white and red lead���1,744,-
289 pounds, value. $70,563 ; manufacturers N. O. P.���value, $2,906. Omitting the last item, the woight of which
is not given, the total weight of lead
and its products imported during the
month of September was 2,542,316
pounds, valued at $85,060, and including the omited item, $89,056. The
free lead imported consisted of nitrate
and acetate of lead���560 pounds, value
$31 ; tea lead���120,284 pounds, value
$5,681.
This makes a total weight of lead
2,663,064 pounds, and the gross value
$94,768. The duty 'paid on lead goods
amounted to $5,848.27, making a
grand total in cost and duty for the
month, $100,,616.27.
A Word of Warning
With good Fuse, good Caps and
good Powder there i> little danger to
the Miner. There is no fuse in tlie
Market that has proved itself so safe as
the Bennett Crown Brand Fuse, and
with the Bennett laps and Giant
Powder the Combination is perfect.

A story of the early  development of
the  unionistic   idea  comes from one of
the adjacent mining camps.    On  some
special occasion the young lady leaching
the school was presented by   her pupils
with a choice boquel toward the purchase of which   each   had   contributed a
small amount.    Shortly afterwards the
children   noticed   a    flower   from   the
boquet on lhe lapel of a young man of
the place.    This man,   when there had
been labor troubles  at   one  of   the adjacent  mines,   had   acted   as   a   ^uide
under authority as a   special   provincial
constable, and while holding   that position had worked  in  the mine.    When
the regular provincial officer learned of
I his he was dismissed. '1L
The pupils   would   not   allow   their
benificience   to  extend   to   this   young
man and informed the teacher that she
must j^et   the rosebud   returned.    This
to the teacher seemed   presumption   in
boys so small and   she   told   them so. ;
The boys would not  have  it   that way
and gave her one day to  get the bloom
returned.    This was  not done  and the
boys called the school out.
The regular attendance is so small
that even a small defection made teaching impossible. For two days the boycott continued when the teacher gave
way, wore the boquett as originally
presented to her, and peace was restored.

SANDON, NOVEMBER 30, iqoi.
*or immaculate, unadulterated
gall E. V. Bodwell can easily size up
to the biggest thing that ever happened. A corporation lawyer by-
trade, Bodwell has held briefs from
every railroad that would pay him his
price. Strait law is his main graft,
but he works politics as a sideline.
While solicitor for the C. P. R. he
worked against the Kettle River charter. No bonus was asked for with
this charter ; Jim Hill offered to build
the road on his own resources. Recently Bodwell quit the C. P. R. and
went to work for Hill. Mr. Hill and
others now want a million dollar
bonus for building the V.V. & E., and
Bodwell actually has the gall to come
out as a candidate in Victoria on that
ticket.
When it comes to a case of a corporation lawyer seeking election so
that he may give one million dollars
of the country's money away to the
company he works for, we can only
take one long gasp and pass up. His
nerve is simply magnificient.
Recording to the Victoria Post,
the Vancouver World and other V. V.
& E. organs, Smith Curtis entertains
a terrible anxiety for an election. Mr.
Curtis must have viewed the political
landscape in a looking glass if he thinks
it slopes his way. The man who quit
the government ownership platform to
advocate a stupendous bonus and who
refused to support Chris Foley because
he was not a liberal and who retains
his affiliation with the Rossland liberal
association which petitioned for the
suspension of the alien act, is not the
kind of a man whom the miners of
Rossland will return to office. When
the election comes the boys in Rossland will elect an independent labor
candidate from among themselves and
then they will have a good man.
3*. AH. ftellie 's forninst John
Houston's redistribution scheme because it does not provide Kellie a seat
in the Big Bend country. Kellie
wants a chance to rubber in on a cheap
vote and then secure the distribution
of the patronage in a district where he
came   pretty   near   being   the  whole
flftanitoba has more wheat to ship
this year than Canada's lake shipping
can handle. United states has more
steamboats on the lakes than there is
American freight for. It is matter of
great importance that Manitoba should
get as much as possible of this year's
enormous wheat crop shipped before
the close of navigation. Consequently
Winnipeg grain men asked to have the
marine rules suspended so that Manitoba grain could be shipped in American bottoms from Fort William to
Owen Sound, Samia or Montreal.
The Dominion government promptly
refused the request on the ground that
it would be detrimental to Canadian
shipping interest. The mere fact that
Canadian shipping already had vastly
more business than it could handle was
not a consideration in the eyes of the
Dominion government.
The concrete result oi this narrow
policy is that Manitoba farmers will
have to pay all-rail freight rates on the
bulk of their crop, whereas, had the
government permitted, they might
have had lake rates bv using1 American
boats. In other words, the farmers
are penalized the difference between
lake and rail freights simply beause
Canadian ship owners lack the enterprise to furnish facilities to handle the
business of their own country.
This illustrates one of the manifest advantages of protection. The
farmer pays the freight.
ijrie total ore production of the
Boundary camp for 1901 will reach
275,000 tons,as compared with 100,000
in 1900. Next year's production, it is
estimated, will crowd close up to the
million mark, The Boundary is in a
fair way to become the biggest mining
camp on earth.
^Before winding up its business
for the year the Sandon city council
should take action to force the payment of delinquent taxes. Gilbert
Malcolm Sproat owns a large part of
the topnsite of Sandon, but up to the
hour of going to press he has not paid
one dollar of taxes on his holdings,
and it is our impression that he never
will until he is cinched. The way to
cinch him is to sell him out.
So-day is the last day on which persons who desire to vote for mayor and
aldermen may place their name on the
municipal list. Anyone who has not
already registered  may  do   so   at the
Canadians delight in prating of
their loyalty to the British Empire and
comparing their country and their irov-
eminent with that of United States
In these comparisons the Canadian
seldom gives the States any the best of
it. In the eyes of the British North
American, the statute oi liberty is a
blasphemy in bronze. Self govern-
ment does not exist south oi the 49th
parallel and the poor man has about
the same chance in United States as a
sheep has in a Chicago packinghouse.
Canada, on the other hand, is rated as
the land oi the really brave and the
home of the truly free. The glorious
old Union Jack is the ensign which
frowns on injustice and guarantees
liberty.
This superstition, which prevails
to its fullest extent among the cultured
class, is once in a while badly shattered. For instance, Canada and the
United States stand practically in the
same position with regard to Asiactic
immigration. It is recognized by all
fair-minded men that an influx of
Mongolians will destroy the Caucasian
civilization oi either country. To prevent such an invasion United States in
'83 passed the Geary exclusion law.
In 1903 this law runs out. President
Rooseveldt was asked what his government was going to do about it and he
immediately replied that United States
would re-enact the law and, if possible,
make it harder to evade.
Compare this with Canada. Having tired oi waiting for the Dominion
or Imperial governments to make a
move, the Province of British Columbia
passed an exclusion act oi its own.
This law the Dominion govern men!
promptly dis-allowed for "Imperial
reasons."
The people oi British Columbia
are frankly told that they will not he
permitted to make their own laws.
The fact that the particular law in
question was enacted as a matter ot
self-preservation makes not the slightest difference to the Imperial government.
Here is a case where United States
is free to make her own laws while
Canada is slave to the brutal and unholy greed of Britain, who would sacrifice her own children to gain the ^\\
will of Japan.
If the mother country thinks less
of us than she does oi Japan she is an
un-natural mother and the sooner we
break away the better.
If Great Britain will not permit us
to make our own laws we certainly
will never permit her to make laws for
British Columbia. This province will
not suicide to suit the Imperial policy. Vbe Papstreak, Sardon. B. ��, November, 30

John 21. much Erpccts a
Revival in Zead
mining.
John A. Finch, in aq interview with
the Idaho State Tribune, said that he
expected to sec every silver-lead mine
in the Northwest operating to its fullest
eopacitv after January 1st. Asked to
give his reasons for thinking so, he
said :
"Not long ago the surplus held by
the American Smelting & Refining
Company aggregated 60,000 tons.
That surplus has been reduced to 40,-
000 tons and is steadily declining, and
when it falls to the 20,000 ton mark it
will no longer be considered a surplus
for the reason that at 00 time during
the most prosperous days of silver and
lead mining were there less than 20,-
000 tons of lead in storage and in
transit. Another hopeful sisjn is the
marked indication of a rise in the price
of lead on the London market, which
bids fair in the near future to reach the
,��"15 point. When this point is reached
on the London market it will greatly
stimulate the export trade and will draw
heavily from the silver-lead mines. A
number of lead mine owners of the
United States will meet representatives
of the American Smelting ec Refining
Lompanv in Mew York about the 2Ath
of this month and as a matter of fact
we cannot say positively what the outcome will be, and while we do not look
for long contracts all the indications
point to such an agreement as will
warrant a revival of the lead mining
industry."
"Do you think, Mr. Finch, that the
smelter combine will consent to a reduction in the market price of lead as a
means of stiinukuirg production ?*'
"By no means will the combine suh-
mit to anything of the kind while a surplus exists. From a business standpoint the combine cannot afford to
relax the market by a Voluntary reduction in the price because the combine has paid 4 cents per pound for its
entire surplus and a decline in lhe
market to 3 !i cents would mean a loss
of between $3,000,000 and $4,000,000
to the smelter trust on the surplu.-. already on hand, to say nothing of existing contracts. This sacrifice the smelter trust is unwilling to make, and from
a business standpoint it cannot be expected to do so. The- hope of the lead
mining industry depends, as I have
said, on the reduction of the surplus,
and until this is done there will be no
stability in lead milling, but present indications point to an early adjustment
and the surplus will be so far exhausted
as to be of no material influence in the
future market price and the making of
contracts for the future output oi the
mines."
"I may be greatly mistaken in my
prediction of the future, but 1 confidently expect a marked revival in mining
after January 1. Much, however, will
depend on the outcome of the meeting
in New York."

The Aspen tunnel, on the Union

and pierces the Aspen range, one of the
eastern foothills of the Wasatch mountains. Its construction was attended
with great difficulties, owing to the
presence oi a large volume oi water
met at digerent places ill its length,
gas and crumbling shale. In some
places the formation swelled like a

necessitating the use of iron and steel
to brace the heaviest timbers obtainable.    Work   w.is  commenced   on the

^
Here   is a simple hut very   effetive way
the Japanese have  of obtaining  quick
silver    From    cinnabar,   the ore   from I
which the mercury of commerce is ob-'
tained.
The cinnabar is first of all powdered. |
This is done by means of an iron mortar
shaped very much like a boat , and
with a circular knife. It is then washed
to remove the foreign mailer and to ob-
tain the cinnabar in a finely powdered
state. After being dried this is then
mixed with an equal weight of half-
burned charcoal , half coal and half
ashes, and the whole is put into an iron
pot,   which  is   carefully covered with a
round iron cover.
This  cover has in the centre of it a
round t opening ,  into   which   a curved!
tube of iron is fixed and cemented with u
wixture of loam, salt and a little water.
The   other  extremity of the tube is led j
into  another pot filled   with cold water.
The whole tube is wrapped in some fib- !
rous substance or swathed   in   felt   and
cooled by the aid of cold water.
The whole is generally heated in a
small open charcoal furnace, the quicksilver distilling into a pot of water. This
process is founded on the fact that the
sulphur of the cinnabar,there being in it
about 13.70. percent of sulphur, is retained by the ashes, and perhaps also
by the iron of the inner surface of the
pot, the mercury evaporating by the
heat' This is then cooled off, when led
by the curved tube into the pot, of cold
water, and deposited therein as quicksilver globules.

Not enjoyment and not sorrow-

Finds us nearer marriage day.

And our hearts, tho light and gay,
Still like pleasant dreams are  beating
Wedding marches all the day.

In the bivouac of life,

And departing leave behind us
Such examples as shall "tell."
Such examples that another,

A forlorn, unmarried hrother,

Conference in new #or*
has not Settled its Bush
ness.
The Coeur d Alene lead producers
and representatives of the American
Smelting & Refining Company have
not yet come to any settlement at their
conference in New York. Latest reports indicate that absolutely nothing
has been done yet.
In view of the steady fall in the price
of silver, which went down to 54 >*
cents yesterday in New York, it is suggested that lhe tendency of the negotiations may be to do away with a restricted outpjt and to put lead on the
market in liberal quantities. That, of
course would mean a great increase in
silver production, and the fall is ac-
coJnled for in some quarters on that
basis.
& Gum Boot Aristocrat.
Charles C. Cliffe of the Mining Review is no common scrub ; he is a blue
blooded aristocrat. One might not
suspect it while gazing on his manly
form, >ut it's on the square. He has
the pedigree. The uncle oi his father's
cousin's wife's nephew was the aunt of
the niece of the second foster mother of
the sister in law of Ladv Scarcrow, or
words to that effect, We have never
traced the matter up, but Cliffy says so
and we will let it ^o at that. VVe are
overjoyed to learn that we have a member of the royal family in our midst
and that he is liable to reach the venerable
age of 90. We understand now what
is meant when a man claims aristocratic descent. It the old Cliffe family ever
amounted to anything Cliffy has certainly descended, His descent is so
apparent that an inverse application of
the Darwidiari theory might by proven
by comparative analysis.

Room.
The yearly meeting of the Reading
Room Commiltee was held last Tuesday-
evening and the following statement of
finances prepared for publication:
PROCEEPS FOR THE YEAR.
Taken from contribution box.. $ 575
Private donations  12 20
Raised by social evenings  81 60
Donated by Methodist Church.. 50 00
Total  $149 55
The expenses for the year were
$189.70, so that the institution shows a
deficit of $40.15. The committee decided to ask the citizens to help to carry
the concern along and two of them
volunteered to canvass the city with the
object of raising $150, for which amount
lhe committee figure that they can
finance the reading room thru for another year.
The reading room is a public resort
open to everyone free of charge and is
the only resemblance of a library in the
city, consequently the committee believe
that it should be liberally supported.
The committee is overlooking an opportunity to improve the institution by
not availing themselves of the use of
the B. C. Government's public libraries.
This should be done at once.

Twas Saturday night   and   a teacher
sat
Alone, her task persuing ;
She averaged   this   and   she averaged
that
Of all that her class was doing.
She reckoned percentage so many boys,
And so many girls all counted,
And marked all the lardy absentees,
And to what their absence amounted.
Names and residences wrote in full
Over many colums and pages ;
Canadian, Teutonic, African, Celt,
And averaged all their ages.
The dale of admission of every one,
And cases of flagellation,
And prepared a list of graduates
For the county examination.
Her wean* head sank low on her book,
And her weary heart still lower ;
For some of her pupils had little brains
And she colud not furnish them more.
She slept, she dreamed, it  seemed she
died,
And her spirit went to Hades,
And they met her there with a question
fair,
"State   what   the   per cent of  your
grade is !"
Ages but slowly rolled away,
Leaving but partial traces,
And the teacher's spirit walked one day
In the old familiar places.
A mound of fossilized school reports
Attracted her observation,
As high as the state house dome and as
wide
As Boston since annexation.
She came to the spot where they buried
her bones
And the ground was  well built over ;
But laborers digging threw a skull
Once planted beneath the clover.
A disciple of Galen, wandering by,
Paused to look at the diggers,
And plucking lhe skull up, looked thru
the eye
And saw it was lined with figures.
"Just as I thot," said the young M. D.
"How easy i is to kill 'em !

Of cerebrum and cerebellum."

"Oh, nothing strange," said the doctor,

And wonder not he d >th inbibe
From out the (lowing bowl.
This scribe once scrawled a paragraph,
Regarded it w;th chuckling laugh,
And joy deep in his soul.
He had evolved from out his brain
Ajokelct, winding up with "train,"
Do you wonder he said damn ?
The man behind the Linotype
All mirth from out  this joke did wipe ;
The proof thereof read "tram."
In hieroglyphic sty'.! again
The man behind the pen wrote "train,*1

The jokelet now appeared thuswise :
The types were changed  to "ham."
In trembling rage���his scrawl a-hlot���
The man behind the pen was hot-
he scribbled at great pace.
The man behind the  Linotype
He swore a few, and   said, "By cripe !
It must be meant for 'trace'."
The writer gave a frantic yell ;
But what he said���I'll never tell !
He wrote the joke again.
He typed it all ; he used the "caps."
He   muttered   things : he said, "Now,
p'raps
That fool 'II get it TRAIN."
He hit the kevbeurd with a swipe���
The man behind the Linotype���
He juggled his machine,
And set the line where should be "train"
In fashion that was quite insane :
"Harun hmbms esrmn���*.VRNIT6$

With cinch akin to leaden pipe,

"That's easy," said the Accomplished

only worth $39.97 as a work of art ?
asked Jones, 'I'm worth more than
that as live stock.'
" 'We took a little off the value because the tattooeing is somewhat worn.
If you are worth more we will raise it
to any figure you declare,' responded
the custom clerk.
" 'Don't get sarcastic,' retorted Mr.
Jones, getting madder, 'this is an outrage. I shall not pay one cent of duty
on myself, either as a painting, a
statue, a piece of bric-a-brac, or any
other old art object. What are you
going to do about it ?'
" 'We shall be obliged to seize you
and place you in the appraiser's stores.'
"By this time Jones saw the situation was getting serious. He quieted
down and started to advance arguments in his own behalf.
" 'It's a family heirloom and exempt
from duty.'
" 'Mother or father's side ?' asked
the custom man, pityingly.
" 'It's a keepsake���.personal property���has never left my possession���don't
intend to sell it,' he yelled.
" 'That won't do with us,' answered
the government. 'We let a man thru
last year on that plea, and the first
thing we knew he was sellng his
tattooing in a museum. Then we got
strict orders not to let any more of you

"'Do I look like a freak ?'Jones
yelled. *
" 'There's a strong family resemblance that way,' was all Jones got for
his trouble. At last Jones asked if he
could have a lawyer and, of course,
got me.' He was almost in a state of
collapse, and was sobbing like a child.
When he told me what the trouble was
1 started out to have him released.
After some discussion, the customs
officials said they would let him out
under bond not to sell or exhibit.

did not make the bond read 'exhibit

wear gloves to keep from showing the

doesn't suffer much, altho it grieves

SANDON, DECEMBER 7, iqoi.
The Nornhern Securities Company is evidently not going to limit its
operations by any imaginary boundary
lines. During the last thirty days promoters of the Secnrities combination
have been purchasing Canadian Pacific
stock in large bunches and they are
now in control of the Canadian road.
This is what every sensible man has
looked for right along, altho the fool
public said that such things could not
be. But it' could not be otherwise.
Hill, Morgan & Rockefeller have
made a bargain with Harriman, Gould
& Vapderbuilt whereby they jointly
control the railwav traffic of the West-
ern States. Thev effect certain econo-
mies by cancelling duplicate trains and
cutting out duplicate offices. They
also put a stop to any rate cutting or
rebates and they increase the profits
of the roads in many ways. To ab-
sorb this extra profit they throw a few
hundred millions of water into the
stock.
So far so good, but the Canadian
Pacific, a foreign road, stands on the
outside in a position to slash transcontinental rates to a finish or levy
blackmail for maintaining them. As
a matter of fact the C. P. R. has for
years collected $500,000 per annum
from the Southern roads for keeping
out of competition in San Francisco.
What then could be more natural than
that Hill, Morgan, Rockefeller, Gould,
Harriman & Vanderbuilt should buy
the Canadian Pacific and so save themselves a heap of worry and expense.
But it is a rude awakening for
Canada, This country has been deluded into giving up hundreds of millions in land and money to the C.P. R.
in the fond, foolish fancy that we were
fostering a Canadian railway. Canada
now finds herself sold into bondage to
the Wall Street financiers. Henceforth
no one may live in Western Canada
except under sufferance of Hill, Morgan & Rockefeller. All the millions
given in bonuses have been worse than
thrown away, for they now go to
enrich the very people whom we have
tried to guard against.
Canada has arrived  at that stage
of the game where  she   has her choice
Tin: Challenge, published in
New York by H. Gaylord Wilshire,
and the Appeal to Reason, published
in Girard, Kansas, by J. A. Weyland,
have been refused entrance as second
class mail matter by the United States
post office department. Both publications are purely socialistic. Wilshire
is a millionaire, a scholar and an orator
who is spending his life and his fortune
spreading the doctrine oi socialism.
He will move to Toronto and continue
publication there. Weyland is a talented writer whose name has become
familiar to every intelligent reader on
the North American continent. He
will remain in Kansas and fight the
department.
The action of the post office
authorities in shutting these papers
out from the privilege which is extended to every other paper in the United
States is the best advertisment that
the socialists have received in many
years. It shows plainly how much
the old parties fear the new one.
The New York lead conference
is being watched with intense interest.
The outcome is of vital importance to
the lead mining industry in the United
States and the agreement will no doubt
affect British Columbia also.
It is generally conceeded that the
present market price of $4.37'< can
not be longer maintained, and the
trust wants to cut the price of settlement to $3 a hundred. To the Coeur
d'Alene owners this would not be
altogether unsatisfactory, providing
they were permitted to produce to their
full capacity, as they could undoubtedly make tlie same profit at $3 or $3.25
unrestricted as they have done from the
curtailed output at $4. To many of
the smaller mines, however, with the
present freight and treatment exactions and the exorbitant deductions for
moisture, a $3 settlement would spell
ruin. Utah mine owners, for instance,
have already been cut to $3.40 by the
trust and with a further cut their margin of profit would pinch out entirely,
as many of the Utah properties are
low grade. The Missouri mines also,
where lead is the only product, would
be hit hard and many of them would
have to suspend operations.
While this would limit production
in these fields, the unrestricted production of the Coeur d'Alenes would undoubtedly make it up and also supply
the extra demand which would naturally follow a reduced price.
There is little or no probability
that the Coeur d'Aleners will refuse to
accept the reduced price, as the trust
has the cinch. Should the mine own-
ers attempt^ to establish smelters and
refineries of their own the trust could
buy lead ore in B. C. at the present
price of $1.40 a hundred, and paying
the U. S. duty of $1.50, could lav it
down, at their own smelters for $2.00
taxing the Kootenay miner emit" for
freight and treatment to permit the
trust to undersell the Coeur d'Alenes,
Besides this the trust is in close touch
with the railway monopoly, and consequently has the Coeur d'Alene produc*
ers at its mercy.
The only thing which stands in
the way of- a reduction in price is the
enormous surplus which has hjen
piled up by the trust while trying to
maintain a fictitous market price. For
this surplus of 40,000 or 50,000 tons
the trust has paid $4 a hundre 1 to the
mine owners, and it wants to get its
money out of it. It is quite probable
that an agreement will be made whereby production will be curtailed until
this surplus is disposed o\\ afier which
a free produatiori will follow and the
market be left to find its own I ;vel.
This would suit the Coeur d'Alene
mine owners, but it would make it hid
for less favored lead producers in
United States.
It is a sad commentary on Canadian enterprise to think that notwithstanding the 81.50 tariff handicap our
mines are rich enuf to undersell the
Coeur d'Alenes and are being" used as
a club to beat down prices in United
Sfates, yet Canada has not sufficient
get-up about it to smelt and refine its
own ore. In an op<;n market Slocan
could beat the world, nevertheless
Canadians permit their industry to
languish. The depression in B, I.
lead mining is due solely and directly
to Canadian apathy and stupidity, and
Canada is just getting exactly what is
coming' to her.

days ago the shareholders decided to

At a meeting of the Western Federation of Miners in Denver, Colorado,
a few days ago the executive committee
decided to fight the Centre Star and
every other company that will not pa)

This means a fight to the finish;
The Centre Star may think itself a
strong company, but the Western Federation is in a position to carry on the
scrap until hell freezes over and then
continue the controversy on the ice.
When it is all over the Toronto stockholders will entertain a sort of sneaking
suspicion that they were in a fight- the Papstreak, Sandon, B. C, Becember 7.

metals in demand.
There is .an incicased demand for
nickel, chromium arid platinum, which
is causing a zeal >��� - search to be made
for them. The supply of platinum is
particularly short and in Germany there
is talk of confining the use of the metal
to certain purples and prohibiting it for
others so l1 ��� > the consumption will be
deceased. The Engineering and
Mining Ji urnal in speaking of the scarcity of thvse metals says: ,
Nickel, chromium and platinum are
heeded in the United States. The conditions oi occurence are being investigated more carefully than at any recent
time. It chances that all three metals
are sought in lhe same rocks��� altered
eruptives rich in magnesium.
No less than four new sources of
nickel have been recorded in the lasi
few months, and in one���in Nevada���
nickel, plalinum and copper are all
reported, making profitable extraction
possible with only a small percentage
of nickle Chronium ores require, on
the other hand, 50 per cent, or more
of chromic oxide to make the ore profitable for bichromate manufacture.
The zealous search for platinum in
the past three years has revealed traces
of il in most unexpected quarters, such
as eastern Pennsylvania, and in North
Carolina as a mineral curiosity. It has
been found in hundreds of placer'gold
mines in California, Oregon, and British
Columbia, in sufficient quantities to
place the North America above South
America as a source for this precious
metal and probably next to Russia���if
the gold miner can be induced to abandon his prejudice for the yellow metal
and save the platinum with it. Thi��
does not seem difficult, especially with
the latter equal to gold in price; but
nevertheless great quantities oi platinum and its allied metals, osmium and
iridium, have been thrown awav.
mining frloat.
The 28th annual report of the Rio
Tinlo mines of Spain is interesting to
those who keep in touch with the production of the .red metal. It has an
added interest in this section from the
fact that W.A.Carl vie, formerly provincial mineroligist and for a period
manager of the British America corporation mines of the Rossland camp, is
now lhe manager for the Rio Tinto
company's mines. The report for the
past year shows a profit of $9,700,000
and the year's dividends amounted to
85 percent. During the past five years
the output of the mines reached the
stupendous total of 30,781,000 tons of
pyritic ore, and from this product
600,000 tons of metal was extracted,
lc is estimated that the amount of copper
in the reserve heaps will amount to
128,016 tons. This is an increase from
the figures of 1899 when the reserve
was 118,651 tons. The untouched
deposits of ore are said to be sufficient
to give the mines a life time of 25 years.

British Columbia, is taken out each year
and the estimats of the quantity of ore
yet to be mined is based upon this rale
of production
It has lateley come to light that the
average value of the ore taken from the
United Verde is $75 per ton in all���
t^old, silver and copper. This mine so
far as has been developed, including
exploration diamond drillings below
the present working, shows an immense
chimney, 400 by 000 feet across, that
has been explored by shafts, tunels and
drill holes to a depth oi 1,400 feet.
Just how far it will be possible to work
this mine before the heat limit is reached
is hard to say, but a reasonable estimate would be 3.000 feet. An estimate
by one of the best mining engineers in
this country shows that the mine to a
depth oi 1,400 feet contains 330,000,000
cubic feet of ore, estimating 11 cubic
feet to the ton there is prac ically 23,- j
000,000 tons in sight. If we carry I
these figures a little further on the
present four values of the United Verde
we have the average value of the ore
equalling $2,500,000,000. The present
owner of the property has rsfused $50,-
000,000 for the mine.
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, convulsions and pre-mature old ago. They
sometimes become so impregnated with
mercury that a piece of brass put in
theii mouth or rubbed between the
fingers becomes white like silver. The
only cure is absolute cessation from
such employment, tho certain classes
of mineral water  baths  are efficacious.
The war in South Africa has drained
from Australia more than 10,000 workers; has lessened the inflow of British
capital for the development of new mines
and combined with the remarkable
industrial boom in Great Britain, has
fully stopped emigrtion to Austrlia.
The J.Malay peninsula supplies bv far
the greater moiety of.the tin supply of
the world: Federal Malay states 45,000
tons ; Independent Malay slates^ooo ;
Dutch Indies ,5,000 ; Cornwall. 4,000.
The Malay mmes are almost entirely in
