Phoenix, Oot, 16.—(Special.) —
This week the ore tonnage from
Boundary mines has fallen off
somewhat from that of the last few
weeks, due largely to needed repairs being given to ore crushers
and blast furnaces. The grand

THANKSGIVING SERVICES
Joint Services Held In the Methodist
Church on Thursday
There was a joint service held in
the Methodist ohuroh on Thursday
last, Thanksgiving Day, at 11 a.m.
whioh   was  very   well  attended.
Largely a service of song, the
preachers in attendance were the
Rev. R. Stiilman of the Methodist
church, Rev. J. MaoNeill of the
Presbyterian and Rev. J. Cleland
of the Anglican, the sermon being
delivered by the laBt named who
preached upon gratitude.
The singing was bright and a

The City Council
The meeting of the oity oounoil
on Tuesday night was uneventful.
Beyond the usual aooounts passed,
there was practically nothing else
done.
NO CAUSE IS ASSIGNED
Police Magistrate   Boult-
Bee's Appointment
Cancelled
Like a bolt^from the blue oame a
letter on Thursday evening from
the Provincial Secretary to Polioe
Magistrate Boultbee notifying him
that the government had cancelled
his appointment here from the 30th
of November next. No reason was
assigned foi the action.
John" Boultbee has been magistrate here for the past four years
and claims that he has never cost
the oity one cent through any decision and further declares that
although there has been some 16
convictions of his appealed, every
one of them have been sustained.
There is no word as to Lis successor. The names of John S.
Clute, of W. J. Nelson, of W. Town-
send and of Charles Gillan have
been oonneoted with the office but
there has been no notification as to
who will be appointed.
It is stated that one lawyer in
the city has declared that he would
be willing to take the position of
magistrate and of city solicitor for
$100 monthly. This would effect
an eoonomy on the surface. The
same proposal was made to the
present incumbent of the magistracy but the objection was raised
that the police magistrate oould
hardly be expeoted to Bit in judgment upon a bylaw which he had
himself drafted and that it would
be impossible to plead a case as city
solioitor before himself as citi
magistrate. In such case another
lawyer would have to be engaged
and such retainer would probably
swallow any saving that might
have been made. This was shown
in the Odams prosecution when the
oity Bolicitorsbip was held in abeyance.
A Successful Se
Dr. Milloy has just returned to
oamp after having been absent
since last May on his claims the
I. X. L. and the Alpine^in the Lar-
deau country. The dootor thinks
he has a good property with a vein
oarrying good values from three
to seven feet in width. The summer's work has been chiefly confined to cross cutting in order to establish the vein.

LITIGATION
Centre Star Against Nickel
Plate
FACTS DIVULGED BY COUNSEL
Plea for Damages Entered by the
Gooderham Mines-Defence Alleged
The case of the Centre Star
against the Rossland . Kootenay
mines aa developed by the arguments used on Tuesday morning
last of the counsel on either side
A. C. Gait and C. R. Hamilton respectively, would lead the average
layman to wonder why it is before
the Court except it is—in the
words of Chief Justioe Hunter himself, who has a habit of calling a
spade a spade and not an agricultural implement used for digging
— brought to help out the lawyers.
Nothing was done in the matter
except to adjourn until December
next.
The counsel occupied the attention of the court for the best part
of the morning and the issue
would seem to be that the Centre
Star is complaining that the Ross-
land Koc vaay Mines, or the Roasland Great Western its predecessor
in the Nickel Plate, or the predecessor of the Great Western, the
East Le Roi or poBBibly Mr. William Thompson, the present manager of the Rossland Kootenay
Mines and the former superintendent of the Rossland Great Western, any one or all of these parties,
had been excavating ore outside
the limits of the Nickel Plate and
within the limits of the contiguous
property, of the complainant, the
Centre Star. Over and above this
the complainants aver that the
seepage of water from the filled up
workings of the Nickel Plate had
caused damage to tbe mine of the
com plainants and there was dread
of an even greater calamity by the
sudden irruption of those pent up
waters into the Centre Star workings.
Mr. Gait maintained that up to
a very recent date the complaina-
ants had no idea of the nature of
the defence of the defendants
which was apparently that the
Rossland Great Western (or possibly some predecessor, according
to Mr. Hamilton) and not tbe Rossland Kootenay Mines Was the real
offender and that, therefore, the
Rossland Kootenay MineB was not
liable. This as concerned the excavation of ore. Mr. Gait wanted
an adjournment to ascertain
whether the Rossland Kootenay
in taking over the Nickel Plate
from the Rossland Great Western
had assumed its liabilities, and
their joining or not to the Rossland
Kootenay. Also as one of his
witnesses, a Mr. Strout, had surveyed the ground in question and
waa leaving for Australia next
week, he wanted an adjournment
so as to take hia evidence in commission,
>   For the defence  Mr.  Hamilton
urged that they were quite ready
to go on with tbe case and that an
arrangement had been vainly attempted for the past four months.
Further that while the Rossland
Kooteray could not admit its liability as to the excavation of ore,
the said removal not having been
done by them, they were quite
willing to surrender the ore whioh
had not been moved from the
dump in which it had been placed
at the surfacn. As to the presence
of the water Mr. Hamilton deolared that if the case should lie it
would be properly brought against
the Rossland Kootenay as the
water had accumulated there sinoe
their or^ership of the Nickel
Plate. Still even in this matter
his oompany had gone as far as it
oould. It had pumped out the
mine and had put up masonry
bulkheads in suoh a manner as to
prevent the seepage of water from
the one mine to the other. These
offers had been made to the 00m-
plainant some time sinoe with the
desire that the suit should not be
prooeeded with and that eaoh
party should pay its own costs.
The Chief Justice, while regretting delay whioh would only serve
to swell the costs, thought that
some arrangement should have
been come to, that the defendants
ought not to have sprung their
plea ae to the liability of some
other'company at the last moment
and would therefore adjourn the
the case until the December sitting
in order to allow of some arrangement if possible. The costs of
adjournment and further proceedings such as the drawing of fresh
pleadings,and the motions to strike
out certain particulars on the same
by the opposing side would be in
the cause.
The Health Board
The Board of Health has been
getting after the sanitary conditions
of the different dairies round the
city, so important a matter to the
infant children ef the camp. It
waB found that some of the dairies
bore inspection remarkably well,
while others were ordered to place
their premises in a better condition,
especially with regard to the position of the midden or farm accretions with reference to its nearness
to the dairy. These were ordered
away, and it iB understood that
this iB being carried out under the
inspeotian of the sanitary inapeotor.
Election Day Prosecutions
Nothing was done during the week
with regard to the proposod prosecutions of saloon men who opened,
despite the instructions of the chief
magistrate, immediately after the
dosing of the polls upon election
day.
The Water Service
The city enginineer has been
engaged during the week in laying
a pipe along Kootenay avenue,
connecting the city system with
that of the Le Roi. This haB been
nearly finished, so far indeed as to
allow of a trial being made with
very satisfactory results, especially
with a view to fire protection,

AUTHORS
AND BOOKS
What the Magazines are
Saying
ARTICLES OFCURRENTCOMMENT
Some Recent 'Books and Periodicals
-Topics Interesting General Readers.
The ourrent number of Cassell's
is a bright enough issue, containing
a good installment of Max Pember-
ton's serial "Red Morn," whioh will
be found interesting.
The WindBor for October is a
strong number. Besides a continuation of J. Holt Schooling's vivid
artiole on tbe fiscal polioy of the
Empire as it is and aB it might be,
there are other articles by Louis
Traoy, Hamilton Drummond and
Henry Harland, which are worth
perusing, and for a lover of S. R.
Crockett, the serial "Strong Mac"
will be found of the best.
The Strand oontains the revival,
or rather resuscitation of the popular hero, detective, or "criminal
investigator," as Conan Doyle
dubs his oreation, Sherlock Holmes
Besides this another installment of
the wonderful scout Tammers of
the Sudan, will be welcomed by the
magazine reader.
The most notable feature of the
North Amerioan Review is an article by one Frank Traoy which,
treating of  the  relation between
the   Dominion   and   the United
States, sums   up his speculations,
by       asserting     "Canada    will
come to the United States after a
brief period of independence." The
wish is  doubtless  father   to   the
thought.   Mr. Traoy shows about
as muoh contempt for the Empire,
and about as muoh ignorance  of
Canada as a man can   very well
display in the course of a short article.  Another article by the Commissioner   of  Navigation,   E.   T.
Chamberlain,  points out that tie
real agreement between the British
government "and the Cunard company, is that of a partnership between  the  two,  and   going even
farther than that, limits the employ of the   Cunard   line  almost
wholly (altogether so in regard to
its officers) to  Britons, thus going
back to the conditions antedating
1854, when the British mercantile
marine was thrown open to all nations, much to the disgust of some
of the best seamen that the Empire
has  produced.   Mr.  Chamberlain
also shows that the agreement concluded between the British government and the International Mercantile Marine Association, made
just after the signing of the Cunard
oontract, is  of such nature as to
make   Pierpont  Morgan's famouB
Atlantic Merger, a British concern,
absorbing the capital of the astute
New  Yorkers   who    entered   the
North Atlantic shipping combine.
Mr.  Chamberlain  conoludes that
these "two masterpieces of British
business-statesmanship," bad effectually for the time being, converted
the North Atlantic shipping trade
into a British preserve.
Leslie's for October is full of
short stories, whioh are well up to
the average standard. One by S.
R. Crookett is particularly interesting.
The National is a fair number,
and ia noted by the diversity of its
articles.   As its names implies this
BoBtonian publication is exclusively devoted to things American.
Senator Tillman sums forcibly on
the negro question iu the southern
states, by pointing out that in the
two states of Mississippi and South
Carolina, the blacks are easily in
the majority, and in the whole six,
including thoee just named and
Florida, Georgia, Alabama and
Louisiana, they are more numerous
by upwards of 30,000, that in suoh
case absolute equality before the
law would mean negro domination,
that the South would never sub
mit to this, and that, therefore,
"the negro must be subordinate
and remain so forever, or he will
be exterminated." In other words
race war.
It is doubtful whether Gilbert
Parker book "Donovan Pasha
and Some People of Egypt," will
ever attain the popularity in this
country as some of his other better
known and more widely liked and
read books. Still'as a collection of il
lustrative Bhort stories on British
rule in the country of the Nile,
showing the manners of the fellah-
in, it is worth reading and will
give the reader a much better no
tion of the country than a more
exhaustive and pretentious book of
travels

Conservative Platform
[Adopted at Revelstoke, September 13th, 1(102.]
1. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of the party in matters of provincial roads and
trails: tho ownership and control of railways
and the development of the agricultural resources of the province as laid down in tho
platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as
follows;
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of tho
province and tho building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt tho principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of tho province will admit, and tho
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
docs not give tho government of the provinco
control of rates over lines bonused, together
with tho option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in the development of the agricultural resources of tho
province."
2. That in the meantime and until tho railway policy above sot forth can be accomplish,
ed, a general railway act bo passed giving
freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to tho system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in tho United Statos, With so
much advantage to trade and commerce-
3. That to encourago tho mir.ing industr",
tho taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on the basis of apercentage on tho net profits.
4. That the government ownership of telephone systems should bo brought about as a
first step In tho acquisition of public utilities.
5. That a portion of every coal aroa here
after to bo disposed of should bo reserved from
salo or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if (heir operation bocomos
necessary or advisable.
0. That in the pulp land leases provision
should bo made for reforesting and that stops
should be taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the logislaturo and government of
the province should persevere In tho effort to
secure tho oxclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms In tho
way of subsidy and appropriations for tho
province should be vigorously prossed upon tho
Dominion government.
9. That the Hllvor-load industries of (ho province be fostered and encouragod by tho imposition of increased customs duties on lead and
load products imported Into Canada, and that
tho Conservative members of the Dominion
Houso bo urgod to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as Industrial disputes almost Invnr-
lably result in great loss and injury both to the
parties directly concerned and to the public,
legislation should be passed to provido moans
for an amicable adjustment of such disputos
between employors and employes.
11. That it is advlsablo to foster the manufacture of tho raw products of tho province
within the provinco as far as practicable by
moans of taxation on thosaid raw products.sub;

Large quantities of lead have az-

has helped to depress values
At Hallstahamma works in
Vastmanland, Sweden, a plant for
the electric smelting of zino is being installed
During the first half of 1903 there
was produced in France 1,365,421
tons of pig iron, 318,745 tons of
wrough iron, and G66571 tons of
steel.
The restriction of production has
become effective in nearly all the
colleries in Wilkesbarre. It is estimated that 27,000 miners have
been put on half time.
In the Caucasus some fields of
antimony have been found contain
ing from .1 to li oz. of gold, whioh
content* already covers the mining
expenses for the antimony.
The festivities in connection with
the opening of the Gwanda railway,
Bulawayo, were a great success.
The Wankie coalfields were at the
same time connected with the railway system.
It is said that the tin fields belonging to the Efremoffek's Metallurgical Company, in East Siberia,
will be inspected .by several German tin miners, who intend to
work the fields on a large scale.
Advices have been received that
two rich benches have been struck
on the divide near Glen Gulch, in
tho Rampart distriot, Dawson,
Yukon. One is between Glen and
Gold Run. The first known as the
Wachter bar, and the second as
Shirley bar. The benches are being made to bring water three
miles in a ditch to the properties.
The gold output for July is the
highest as yet recorded in the history of the gold mining industry of
West Australia, being 212,051
ounces, worth £765,005. This
shows an increase of over 2000
ounces, above that of January last,
the previous highest. The total
gold yield of the state since records
were first kept in 1886 has been
11,408,723 ounces, valued at £42,-
833,651.
In the Caucasus lately some new
copper fields have been opened
and inspected. The assays gave
an average of nine per cent ore
and three-quarters to one ounce of
gold. It is intended to sell the
mineB to a company, and owners
would be willing to take part of
the shares. The demand for oopper is rising constantly in Russia,
and the inland production is not
able to cover half the demand.
In a report on affairs in Judo-
China   recently   reoeived   at  the

been found suitable for this class of
work.
Sinoe the commencement of this

Amerioa, have been looking for
asbestos in Siberia, but up to the

asbestos have not been made, owing to the ridioulous prioes, whioh
the Siberian owners are asking for
their fields. Samples whioh were

WATERLOO OF NORTH FORK-
Promising  New  Section of Country
opening up.
Dr. KingBtc n and G. A. McLeod
despatched a pack train with powder and supplies this week to their
Waterloo claim situated at the
headwaters of the north fork, One
hundred mileB uorih of Grand
Forks saya the Gazette. The outfit went overland lo Brooklyn,
thence by boat lo Fire Valley and
across the divide to the property.
It is the intention of the owners
us a result of their recent inspection of the Waterloo, to push development work at once and to
make shipments by pack train
during the winter months. The
distance from the claim to the
boat landing is about 30 miles
over a rough country.
The lead on the Waterloo which
is a silver lead proposition, is easily four feet wide although the pay
streak thus far is considerably less.
However the indications of being
able to mine high grade ores in
large quantities iB exceedingly encouraging. The average values
are $300 per ton principally in
silver, with 5 per oent copper and
a little gold.
Despite the remoteness of the
property from transportation little
doubt is entertained of the ability
of the owners to mine the ore and
ship it out by pack horses at a
very substantial margin  of   profit.
Many specimens of the ore gave
assays returns exceeding $2000 per
ton and when the lead is opened
up some rich pay Btreaks are likely to be encountered.

THE LEAD BOUNTY.
The Ottawa government haw
granted a bounty on lead, but it ie
bo worded that the railway and the
smeltermen think that they have a
chance of corralling it. At least
such ia the assertion of J. C. Drewry and James Cronin of the St.
Eugene. The Lead Miners Asso
ciation hold their discussions, as
has been their wont, with closed
doors and are Baying nothing.
Neithsr are the other side. In the
meantime the mines are taking
practically no advantage of the
bounty. But when the Would
pointed out nearly a year ago, this
w..s exactly the deadlock that
would happen, and that the bounty
ought to be unmistakably given to
the lead ore producer, it was told
that the proposed action was unprecedented, and that the railway
.ind smelter would not act otherwise than to their best advantage.
All of this may be true, but the
fact remains, that bounty or no
bounty tbe lead mines are not prospering.
RETALIATION,
It is sometimes argued that if
Great Britain were to protect her
markets against all countries, except those of Greater Britain, that
these countries would certainly
retaliate. Without going into the
the question of the provocation
already existing, inasmuch as
Great Britain puts up no protective tariff against foreign manufactures, while her own are severely
taxed when entering a foreign oountry, it may be pointed out the foreign oountries are hardly in a
position to retaliate. Take the
United States for an example
which Bends to Great Britain upwards of 41 per cent of its total
exports, while only taking 18 per
oent of the export of Great Britain.
Great Britain is the best customer
the United States has, Germany
being the second and Canada
the third. By what possible
means may the United States
injure Great Britain without damaging itself in a far greater proportion. A tariff war would simply
shut, out the United States from its
very beat markets, and at the same
time would greatly stimulate the
industries of Canada, Australia and
other portions of the Dominions
Over the Seas, ae th? King's title
reads. Aa far as the United States
is concerned, the probabilities
would rather seem to point to a
reciprocity treaty between the Anglo-Saxon peoples and their dependents, which would go far to
establish a commercial supremaoy,
ultimately ending in free trade
which would be a reality instead of
the mockery whioh is at present
flouting and blinding the insular
doctrinaire.
A CURIOUS ARGUMENT.
chequer,on the Right H. C. Ritchie
in Bpeaking lately before an English
audience, in defence of his retirement from the Balfour cabinet,
used a curious argument as
to the possible relations batween
Canada and the United States,
should thiB country be given a
preferential duty on wheat. It is
that ''America would punish Canada." His assertion met with derision, and the McKinley tariff waB
immediately urged in rebuttal. In
fact the ex-Minister could hardly
proceed. Now the United States
has built up itB undoubted prosperity on a basis of absolute free
trade between its component parts
and rigid, obstructive, protection
against whomsoever else. That
country can hardly objeot to a
similar policy being pursued by
Great Britain. Mr. Ritchie implies
that the United StateB could get
even with Canada by preventing
the shipment of Canadian grain
through itB ports. If it did so it
would simply lose a vast and increasing carrying trade, and would
moreover, build up Quebec and
Halifax, Vancouver and Port Simpson at the expense of its Asiatic
and Pacific seaports. Should that
country build up a tariff wall cutting off Canada from a market of
70,000,000 people (it is pretty
well cut off now) the break
ing down the of other tariff wall
between the ports of the Empire
would open a market of 400,000,000
people. Mr. Ritchie should take »
tour of Greater Britain, which
would inform him though many
of its inhabitants believe in free
trade, they believe still more in
fair trade, and hardly deem a system of free imports to be either fair
or free trade.
iB made that the money made
should be laid over for the next
public celebration. This would
seem to be its legitimate destination. Another is that it be devoted
to the beautifying of the public
park. If the beautifying of that
park consisted in the establishment of recreation grounds whioh
oould be used for carnival purposes
there would be some sort of connection established between the money
and the purpose for which it waB
given and its proposed destination.
But as such recreation grounds
would be inconveniently situated
from the oity they would not be at
all popular. It might be better in
this regard to sell the park according to the proposal of Mr. F. Rolt,
and devote the proceeds to the es-
tablisment of a park elsewhere. As
to the idea of setting the cemetery
to rights, it is indeed a charitable
one, and if the mayor and council
are not willing to do anything then
the city will have to get in and do
something itself. But the money
cannot be thus diverted with a public meeting being held.
AN APPEAL.
'Rome burns while Nero fiddles1
—The unfortunate position of British Columbia is more than anything else due to the unfortunate
state of its politics. It waB hoped
that party government would have
remedied the evil and given one or
the other of the contending parties
sufficient supremacy to have insured a stable government. But
the issue of the election would seem
to be perilously near a deadlock.
Should the - Btriving whether Richard MoBride or another is or not to
be the premier of the province
prove the question of the
day rather than the well being
of the provinoe, the political
cloud over the fortunes of this
province is as lowering as ever.
Would it not be better to see what
the premier de facto has to.propose
and b atk his legislation, if wise, at
all events, for one session? The
Mining Association has a very
good programme, which might be
attended to, The province is sick
of elections just now. Later things
may be different. If the outside
world Bees that with things politioal at their worst, the province has
still hard sense enough to govern
itself, the objects of a stable gov-
ment will be won and both capital
and labor be agreed. Let a truce
be called if it be honestly possible.

the general public in the shocking
condition of the cemetery, and dis-
gUBt is expressed in the barbarian
like manner in which it has heretofore been treated. A suggestion has
been made that a man be put in
charge and the caretaker's house
delivered over to him for a residence. The chances are that such
a man could be got for $50 per
month from the city, just as long as
the city insisted that he should be
the official sexton, and have the
digging of all graves which together with the tending of the
graveB themselves and the keeping
of them well trimmed, would bring
that salary up to at least $76 per
month, The cost to the city would
not be very large, as there is an income coming from the sale of
graveB which averages over $200 a
year. This would probably bring
the net cost to the city to some $400
or less per annum. The expense
Bhould be regarded as a necessity
and not aB aB a luxury.

BOOMING THEPROVINCE
British Columbia Products
Exhibited in Great
Britain
Salmon Arm, Oct. 12.
Editor World:
Will you kindly allow me,
through your paper to place before
the farmers & fruit growers, a
scheme for the advancement of our
province. The advantages of British Columbia as a place for settlers
are very little known, and it cannot be denied that where printed
matter will often pass unheaded
the object itself will arrest attention.
My proposition is to collect samples of roots, fall and winter fruit,
etc., to be forwarded to Great
Britain. Here they could remain
for a certain time ou exhibition in
the large (owns, and afterwards be
distributed amongst the hospitals
and suoh like institutions where
they would no doubt be highly
appreciated. I would suggest
printing a list ot the donors to
gether with particulars of the
fruit, etc., with each contributor,
so that intending settlers might if
they bo desired, obtain information
about any particular locally from
a resident. By this means it might
also be possible to open up fresh
markets for our fruii and introduce
capital.
I will esteem it a favor, if intending donors of produce would
kindly give probable weight and
class of samples, when communicating with me, in order to facilitate arrangements for collection.
Yours truly.

ROD  AND GUN CLUB
Sportsmen Want Improvement in Hunting Conditions Here
More than one of the local
sportsmen have expressed them
selves in favor of the turning down
of the Chinese or English pheasant
in the vioinity of the oity and
then protecting them with a rigidly continuous close time for several
years in order that they shall be
enabled to perpetuate their kind.
This coarse has been pursued on
Vanoouver Island with great sue
cess and the Chinese pheasants have
become plentiful.
While the birds are largely grain
eaters it is alleged that on Vanoouver Island they have accustomed themselves to buds and thrive
apace notwithstanding. This is
true of the Chinese or golden
pheasant but it remains to be proved whether old oonntry pheasants
would Bucceed equally well. The
Chinese pheasant is a handsome
bird and affords good sport as it
haa not the habit of perching upon
trees. The bird will either fly or
run along the ground and as a
good dog should prevent the latter
mode oi escape the sports offered
is good.

The dances of winter are already

Mayoral timber is already being'

Mrs. C. G. Major, aunt of ex-

Although even up to the present

procurable from every constituency
in the riding the figures given be
low, corrected from the estimates
of last week, are probably very
close to the real statistics, and any
difference will not alter the relative
standing of the parties.
It will be found that there have
been 26,200 votes cast for the Conservatives, 21,600 for the Liberals,
5200 for the Socialists and 4600
for the Labor people. That is to
say that the straight Conservatives
represent lees than one half of the
total vote polled of 57,600—26,200
as against 28,800.
How many of the Sooialist or
Progressive votes would have gone
to the Liberal party, bad the separate candidates not run, is problematical: probably at least two-
thirds, although the the Conservatives say they would have split
even. If the Liberal olaim were
correct the total vote would have
been at least 28,400, and the McBride government would have
been far more definitely sustained
than at present. The speculation,
however, is idle, as there is no
means of verification,
It will be noted that the Labor
people were seldom in opposition
to the Socialists, but where such
was the oaBe, as in Vancouver
they polled a muoh larger vote. In
Nanaimo, however, a muoh smaller

What the Outside Newspapers are Saying.
a beginning. itimtionof their   own   parliament
The first shipment of refined ail-1 lives,
ver from British Columbia is quite
an event.   It has  been shipped to
San Francisco which is   merely   a
way station, as its ultimated destin
ation   is   doubtless   China.     Tbe
next step is to  establish   a  direct
trade  between   British   Columbia
and the Orient.   It is only a comparatively small number ol   years
ago that all the refined silver produced in North Amerioa,   and   not
utilized at home, was sold in London and transhipped via   Suez   to
India and China.   A   good  deal
now goes direct by  way   of  San
Francisco,  and  a  few shipments
have been made from Seattle.   No
shipments as yet  have been made
from British Columbia  ports,   but
that, too, will come.   It is not the
exportation of refined silver,   how-
even, from British Columbia which
opens up Buch  great possibilities,
but the retention of tbe lead   from
whioh the silver  is  extracted  in
such a form that it can be used for
manufacturing processes.   Silver is
a precious   metal.   Its   value  all
over the world is  practically  the
same, and the cost of its transportation is,   relatively   to  its   value,
small.   Lead, on the other hand, is
a base metal and in one or   other
of its forms the foundation of, or at
least necessary to,  a great number
of industries.   Silver is silver, but
lead iB red lead, white  lead,   pipe
lead, sheet lead,   paint,   shot  and
countless other things according to
the purpose to whioh it is put. The
corrosion of lead and the gradual
extension of   manufacturing   pro
cesses in which lead is   uBed, are
opportunities for British Columbia
not as yet, perhaps, quite ripe, but
which  are   ripening  daily.   The
first silver lead ore mined   in British Columbia was shipped out on
the backs of mules.   Then   oame
railways, then came smelters, now
a refinery.   It is only  a   question
of time, and a proper  and   intelligent protective   policy,   until   no
lead leaves the oountry except  in
much higher manufactured  forms
than even the pig lead we are producing now, and  until  the  lead
products we use will  be  produced
from our own mines and not  imported from abroad.   This   is   the
true line of industrial development.
By exporting only our raw material and importing all our   finished
products, we impoverish our oountry and feed the industry  of  foreign lands.   But  by manufacturing our  own  raw  material,  and
shipping what we do not  need   in
its highest stages of manufacture,
we doubly enrioh  ourselves,   and
then only take  fall advantage  of
our resources.—Victoria  Colonist

Predictions that the vitbdrawal

The Balfour government is still

Unionists who incline more to
free trade than to protection may
be paoiiied by the assurance that
the Balfour government is not
aotively inflicting protection upon
a Buffering oountry, and by the
knowledge that the defeat of the
government will  involve  tbe  ex-

eminent has done his worst. The
Balfour government will either live
without thanks to Unionist free
traders or it will fall at their hands
and go to the country as the representative of common sense tariff principles.
The Duke of Devonshire might
have Btayed with the Unionist party
and modified its attitude towards free
trade. His withdrawal leaves thai
party with nothing to hope for
from free trade sentiment and commits the only possible or effective
leaders of that.party to protection.

THE KNUDSON SMELTER
New  Process   of  Pyritic
Smelting—Cost Said
to Be Low
In the Knudson pyritic smelting
process, the ore is treated in a
speoially designed convertor, with
only one per cent of fuel and 45 to
55 per cent matte is produced. The
convertor is lined with magnesia
bricks. The blast at the beginning
of the operations is carried at about
3.75 pounds, and at the latter end
is raised to something above atmospheric pressure. A mixture of
slag and matte is formed, the slag
gradually separating. Upon con-
pletion of the last blow the matte
is tapped into a. second convertor
and is there blown into black copper. With a charge of seven metrio
tonB in the convertor, the first operation took four hours and thirty
minutes. The cost iB said to be
low, and the process has the advantage of compactness of plant
and uninterrupted operation.
SIMILKAMEEN CITY, B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen CJity, B. S.
CAMP HEDLEY iB the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this distriot. Tbe Nickel Plate mineB have expended- $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it ia in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and proteoted from a'I opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It waB only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same prioe that they are today being Bold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before tbe boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast they will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to tbe ooast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main Btreet iB 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, which is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.

COPPER PRODUCTION.
Some   Low Cosls Which Were Obtained Last Year
Authorities in touch with conditions of the Lake copper distriot
state that the average cost of production there does not exceed nine
cents per pound, which leaves a
handsome margin of profit when
the metal is selling for 15 cents
The Wolverine, of that district produoed last year for 7.105 cents, in
oluding construction costs, while
tbe year previous the cost at the
same property was 13 cents, show
ing the remarkable reduotions being made in some of the properties.
Oalumet and Hecla is believed to
have been produoed last year for
about seven oents.
The profitable treatment of the
complex ores of Australia has been
a problem which metallurgists of
that country have been working
for years, during which an enormous amount of lesearch has been
accomplished. Most of the experiments have been made with the
zinc lead ores of the Broken Hill
mines, although the Tasmania zino
lead and the South Wales copper
zino ores have also received attention. The decline in metal prices
has lent an incentive to the utilization of the zino values and a
number of piooesBes have been discovered whioh have added millions
of dollars to the value of these
properties, particularly the Broken
Hill Proprietary company's mines
Experiments with all of the processes are being carried on, the successful processes being magnetio
and chemical, although the chemical processes are reported to be the
most satisfactory. One of the
patents reoently granted in this
oountry covered one of the pro
ceases which was evolved at tbe
Broken Hill mines. Australia
promises to become a heavy producer of zino in the near future.

CHAPTER III (Continued)
Just aa the evening set in, and
the earth opened its pores to the
first round drops of warm smelling
rain that pattered on the young
forest leaves, and the thunder be
gan to murmur distantly under the
purple mantle of the coming storm,
my toroh spluttering and hibsing,
I entered the vast gloomy chamber
of my Bleep, and, not without a
sense of awe, stole up along the
walls, a hundred yards or more, to
my strange court.
The ooins were safe, and shining
greenly in their earthen jar; so,
sticking the light in a oleft, I poured them on to the Band, and then
commenced to tuck the stuff away,
as fast as might be, into my girdle.
It waa strange, wild work, tbe only
oompany my own contorted shadow
on the distant rooks and such wild
forms of oruel British superstition
as my excited imagination oalled
up, the only sound the rumble ot
the storm, now overhead, and the
hissing drip of the red rosin gleaming on the wealth, all stamped with
images of long dead Kings and Consuls, that I was oramming into my
pouoh!
By the time the* task was nearly
finished, I was in a state of nerves
equal to seeing or hearing anything—no doubt long fasting had
shaken a mind usually oalm and
oallous enough—and therefore you
will understand how the blood lied
from my limbs and tbe cold perspiration burst out upon my forehead,
when, having sacrificed myself
with traditions of ghouls and cave
devils, I turned to listen for a moment to the dull rumble of the
thunder and the melancholy wave
like sough of the wind in the trees
even here audible, and beheld,
twenty paces from me, in the shadows, a vast shaggy black form,
grim and broad as no mortal ever
was, and red and wavering in the
uncertain light, seven feet high,
and possessed of two, fiery, gleaming eyes that were bent upon my
own with a horrible fixity 1
I and that monstrous shadow
glared at each other until my
breath oame back, when, leaning a
moment mote against the
Bide of the cavern, I suddenly
snatched the toroh from its
oleft with a yell of consternation
that was multiplied a thousand
times by the echoes until it was
like the battle cry of a legion of
bad spirits, and started off in the
supposed direction of the entrance.
But before ten yards had been
covered in that headlong rush, I
tripped over a loose stone, and in
another moment had fallen prone,
plunging, thereby, the spluttering
toroh into one of the many little
pools of water with which the floor
was ritted. With a hiss and a
splatter the light went out, and
absolute darkness enveloped everything!
Just where I had fallen stood a
a round boulder, a couple of yards
broad, it had seemed, and some
five feet high. I sprang to this, instinctively clutching it with my
bands, just u those abominable
green eyes, brighter than ever- in
the vortex, got to   the  other   side,
and hesitated there in doubt. Then
began the most  dreadful  game  I
ever played, with a tor" ..t attach-
ing to it not to bethought oi    You
will understand tho oave waB absolute sterile blackness to  me, a dim
world in which the only animated
points were the twin green stars of
the oruel ghoul, my unknown enemy.   As those glided round lo one
side of the little' rock, I as cautiously edged off to   the  other.     Then
back they would come, and back I
went, now this way and now   that
—sometimes only an inch or   two,
and sometimes making a complete
oirole—with every nerve at  fullest
stretch, and every sense on tiptoe.
Why, all this time,  it   may   be
asked, did I not run   for   the  entrance?   But, in   reply,   the   first
frightened turn or two  round   the
boulder had   made  chaos  of my
geography, and a  start in any   direction then  might  have  dashed
me into the side  of the oave prone
at the mercy of the horrible thing,
whose hot coarse breath fanned me
quioker and quicker, as the  game
grew warm and more exciting.    So
near was it  that  I  oould   have
stretohed out my hands if I  dared
to touch the monstrous being that
I knew stood under   those baleful
planets that glistened in the black
firmament,   now    here  and   now
there.
How long exactly we dodged and
shuffled and panted round that
stone in the darkness cannot be
be said—it was certainly an hour
or more; but it went on bo long
that even in panting stress and excitement it grew dull after a time,
so monotonous was it, and I found
myself speculating on the weather
while Idanced vis-a-vis to my grim
partner in that frightful pastime.
'Yes,' I said; 'a very bad storm
indeed [once to the left], and nearly overhead now [right]. It is a
good thing [twioe round and baok
again] to be so [a sharp spin round
—he nearly had me] conveniently
under cover [twioe to the left and
then back by the opposite side]I'
Well, it could not have lasted for
ever, and I was nearly spent. The
boulder seemed hot and throbbing
to my touoh, and the floor was undulating gently, as it does when
you land from a voyage; already
fifty or sixty green eyes seemed
oiroling in fiery orbits before me,
when extraordinary thing befell.
The thunder and lightning had
been playing widely overhead for
some minutes, and the rain was
coming down in torrents (even the
noise of rushing hill streams being
quite audible in that dear resonant space), when, all of a sudden, there oame a pause, and then
the f..ll of a Titanian hammer on
the done of the hill, a resounding
crash that shook mother earth
right down to her  innermost   ribs,
At the same instant, before we
oould catoh our breath, the whole
side of the oave opposite to us,
some hundreds of paces of rugged
wall, waB deluged with a living,
oscillating drapery of blue flame I
That magnificent refulgence oame
down from above, a glowing cas
cade of light. It overran the rocks
like a beautiful gauze, clinging
lovingly to their sinuonsness, and'
wrapping their roughness in a /ten-
den, palpitating mantle of its own
winsome brightness. It ran its
nimble fiery tendrils down the vein
and crevices, and leapt in fierce
playfulness from point to point,
spinning its electrio gossamers in
that vacuum air like some enchanted tissue spread between the crags;
it ran to the ledges and trickled off
in ambient, sparkling cascades, it
overflowed the sandy bottom in
' "nder sheets of blue and mauve,
feeling here and there with a million fingers for the way it sought,
and then it found it and sank, as
silent, as ghostly, and wonderful
as it had cornel
All this was but the work of an
instant, but an instant of suoh concentrated brightness that I saw
every detail, as I have told you, of
that beautiful thing. More; in
that second of glowing visibility,
while the blue torch of the storm
still shone in the ohamber of the
underground, I saw the stone by
me, and beyond it, towering amazed and stupid, with his bulky
strength outlined against the light
a great oave bear in all his native
raggednesBl Better still, a bowshot
on my right was the narrow
approach of the entranoe
—and as the gleam sank
into the mother world, almost as
quick as that gleam itself, with a
heart of wonder and fear, and a
foot like the foot of the night wind
overhead, I was gone, and down
the Band floor, and through the gap
and into the outer world and mid'
night rain. I plunged once more
grateful and glad.
*****
After such hairbreadth escapes
there was little need to bemoan a
wet coat and an evening under the
lee of a heathery scaur.
When the morning arrived olear
and bright, as it often does after a
storm, I felt in no mood to hang
about the locality, but shook the
rain from my fleece, and breakfasting on a little water from the brook
a staff in my hand, and my dear
bought wealth in my belt, set out
for the unknown town, whose wet
roofs shone like molten silver over
the dark and dewy oak wood.
Five hours' tramping brought
me there; and truly the city astonished me greatly. Could this, indeed, be Britain, waB the constant
question on my tongue as I trod
fair white streets, with innumerable others opening down from them
on either hand, and notioed the
evidenoe of snch art and luxury as,
hitherto, I had dreamed the exclusive prerogative of the capital of the
older empires. Here were bathe
before which the Roman youth
dawdled; stately theatres with endless tiers of seats, from whose rostra
degenerate sons of the soil, aping
their masters in dress and speeoh,
recited verse and dialogue trimmed
to the latest orator in fashion by
the Tiber. Mansions and palaces
there were, outside whioh the sleek
steeds of Consuls and Praetors
champed gilded bits, while waiting
to carry their owners to gay pro-
oession and ceremonial; temples to
Apollo, and shrines to Venus, dotted the ways,forums,marketplaces
and the like in bewildering profusion.
And among all these evidences
of the new age thronged a motley
mixture of people. The thoughtful
senator, ooming from conclave with
his toga and parchments, elbowed
the callow British rustic in the
rude raiment of his fathers. The
wild blue eyed Welsh Prinoe upon
his rough mountain pony would
scarce give right of way to tbe
bronzed   Roman  mercenary from
the Rhine: Umbrians and Franks,
pale haired Germans, and olive
Tuscans laughed and chaffered
round the booths and fountains,
while here and there legionaries
stood on guard before great houses,
or drank on the tressels of wayside
wine shops. Now and again two
or three soldiers oame marching
down the street with a gang of
slaves, or a shook headed ohief tain
from the wild north, fierce and
sullen, on his way to Rome: and
over all the varied throng the crows
and kites oircled in the blue sky,
and the sparrows perohed themselves under the lintel and in the
twisted column tops of their mistress's fane.
Half the day I stared, and then,
having eaten some dry Etrurian
grapes—the first for four hundred
years—I went to the bath, and
threw down a golden coin on the
doorkeeper's marble slab.
'Why, my son,' said that juvenile official of some trivial fifty
summers, 'where in the name of
Mercury, did you pick up this antique thing?' and he handled it
curiouBly. But being in no mind
to tell my tale just then, I put him
off lightly, and passed on into the
great bathing place itself. Stage
by stage 'balneum,' 'cononmerata,'
'Budiato."topidarium,"frigidarium,'
and all their other empty chambers
I went through, until in the last a
mighty slave, who had rub bed me
with the strength of Heroules himself for half an hour, suddenly
stopped, and, surveying me intently, exclaimed-
'Masterl I have scrubbed many
a strange thing from many a Roman body, but I swallow all my
own towels if I oan get this extraordinary dirt from you, and be
pointed to my bare and glowing
chest. There, to my astonishment
revealed for the first time, was a
great serpent like mark of tattoo
and woad circling my body in two
wide zones I What it meant, how
it came, was past my comprehension. Shruuk and shrivelled as I
waB with long abstemiousness, it
seemed but like a gigantic smudge
meandering down my person—a
smudge, however, that with a goodly person might stretch out into an
elaborate design of some nature. Of
course, I knew it was thus the
British warriors were accustomed
adorn themselves; but who had
been thus purposely decorating one
that had never knowingly submitted to the operation, and to what
end, was past my guessing.
"Never mind, Sir; don't despond,'
said the slave, 'we will have another essay;' and hitching me on to
the rubbing oouoh, he knelt upon
my stomach—these bath attendants
were no more deferential than they
are now—and exerted bis magnifi
cent strength, armed with the
stiffest tuwel that ever came off e
loom upon me, until I fairly
thought that not only would he
have the tattoo off but also the skin
upon whioh it was engrossed. But
it was to no purpose, He rose
presently, and sulkily declared I
had had my money's worth. 'The
more he rubbed the bluer those ao-
oursed marks became.' This might
well be, so I tossed him an extra
ooin, and dressin g hastily, covered
my uninvited tattoo and went fortb
fully determined to examine and
read It—for those thinga were
nearly always readable— more
olosely on a better and more private opportunity.

The Fowler caBe about the  pres
ence of oattle within the cemetery
during the past  week came up for
hearing yesterday morning.
There seemed lo be no dispute as
to the presence of Mr. Fowler's cattle within the grounds. The question seemed to resolve itself into
damages and of whether the city
had given permission.
Inspector Long and City Clerk
McQueen both denied that any
permission had been give to the
owners in that vicinity to feed their
cattle within the cemetery. But it
was admitted that owing to the
bad state of the Trail road that
permission had been given to those
men to pass rigs through the cemetery. This it was claimed was
only for the winter months and, as
far as the witnesses were aware, no
further permission was given.
J. Fowler swore that he had
permission from Inspector Long to
have his cattle in the brush, so
long as they were kept out of the
city. The gate must have been
open, else the oattle could not have
got in.
The permission given did not include the cemetery. Defendant
did not claim that the cemetery
was included. Defendant had
caused the cattle to be turned out
when he heard they had got in.
Defendant wculd not object to paying for this repair of the graves,
but did not think it was his fault
that the gate was open.
The court suspended judgment
until Wednesday, and recommended that the defendant fix up the
graves during that time.
Washington Prosperous
W. M. Wood of the customs service is baok after his holiday at the
coast. He reports Seattle and
Spokane, as both doing well and
looking exceedingly prosperous.
There were four small fires between Thursday night and Friday
morning, the circumstances of
which would appear to point to incendiarism. There is absolutely
no due to the perpetrator and apparently nothing wbioh would point
to his identity. All of the fires
were unimportant, and were in
isolated, unhabiled and tumble
down shacks and outhouseB. The
total damage would probably be
covered by a hundred dollar bill
with plenty of margiu.
The first occurred about 10:40
o'clock, and was in a little shack
behind Martin Brothers store, the
roof of which had been broken in
with the snow during last winter.
It wae destroyed and a couple of
adjoining shacks Blightly damaged,
The next occurred within half an
hour, iu a similar shack on First
avenue, eaBt of St. Andrew's church
which    was     promptly      extin
guished.
At about 11:30 another fire broke
out iu an outlying shed in the lane
back of Ward's grocery on Colum
lumbia avenue, and within the
hour a fourth fire broke out in another shed at the back of Allen's
restaurant, both of which were
quickly put out by the fire brigade.
There waB never at any time any
damage likely to accrue to any of
the main buildings, aB the incen
diary apparently had no designs
against anything substantial and
would seem to have been actuated
with a sense of the beautiful and
thought tbe shacks in question
were unsightly. Probably the own
ers would not agree with him.

I do not know if you are a union
man or not, but being a man who
works for wages, you surely must
sympathize with unions as any
man with common sense, and not a
selfish money bug must do. What
would become of labor if there was
not a union to check the capitalist? Man would have to work for
a little or nothing r»nd be thus reduced to slavery.
When the Rossland strike broke
out last year. I assisted it with
all my might and meaDB. Many
families can witness to this. No
union man was refused credit by
me.
I have suffered through it—I
have lost also in bad debts, but I
will stan J by it and will do so to
the last. 1 think lam now justified in askimg you for patronage,
especially when you are not the
loser but the gainer by it. I keep
a nice good new Btock of everything
in men's wear. My goods are of
the best make and oarry the union
label. My prices are from 25 per
cent to 50 per cent lower than any
of my competilors. I buy bankrupt, fire, etc., goods at a low figure
and sell at a small profit. I do
not lake you with advertisements
twice a year that I am going out
of business, etc., etc., but stood and
shall stay with you, and will always endeavor to sell you the best
for the leaBt money.
Compare a few of my prices, and
try if you can   get even a minor
olass of goods at   near the same.
Why   should  you   Baorifioe your
money away, for which you work
so hard, when you oan save it
and do good to yourself and to
your fiicr.d?   "A liitrtl in r.ud i

The suit of the Woodbury mines
