Socialists Ahead and May Control the
Complete returns, not always
official, but sufficiently near to
leave the reBult settled, have
been returned, giving the following
seats to the Conservatives: Atlin,
Dewdney, Esquimau, Grand Forks,
Kamloopa, Kaslo, Lillooet, Nelson,
New Westminster, Okanogan,
Richmond, Vancouver, (5), Ymir,
which together with u .completed,
but sufficiently informed returnB
from Coinox, Revelstoke, Similkameen aud Skeena, also giving a
Conservative majority, show the
total number of Conservatives undoubtedly seated to be 21.
Complete but in many cases unofficial returns give to the Liberals
Alberni, Cariboo (2), Chilliwack,
Columbia, Cosiichan, Cranbrook,
Delta, Greenwood, Island, Rossland, Saaniuh, Victoria (4), Yale.
Total 17.
Two Socialists are returned from
Nanaimo and Newcastle and a
Progressive from Slocan.
This accounts for 41 seats giving
the Conservatives a majority of
one. The forty-second seat is Fernie, of which there is an official
recount today. If the Liberals obtain this the Conservatives will
have only the half of the house and
neither ihey nor the Liberals will
be able to govern without a coalition with the Socialists or a pact
between themselves. If the reverse
then Premier McBride will have,
not counting the speaker, a majority of one.

Where Water Can Be Obtained For Reduction
Although distinctly referred to
by the oity engineer there is one
phase of the water supply of this
oity which does not seem to be
generally understood of the general
public and that is the possibility
of the establishment of large catch
water basins in the mountains.
Stoney oreek has two branches
above the spot whence the water is
now taken the one rising in the
principal bid of Granite mountain
and the other in the big draw between Granite and Kirkup mountains. Besides this there is a
northern fork running just north
of the southermost peak of Kirkup.
Owing to denudation of timber
water is not retained so long in the
ground running rapidly off but the.
same amount falls as of yore.
Catch basins may very well be
established on the upper portions
of these streams and used to supplement the Bupply when the dry
season sets in.
What is true of Stoney creek is
also true of both branches of Rook.
The Bouth fork of Rock oreek,
whence is at present drawn a portion of the city's supply, divides
again near the Murphy creek trail
and drains a huge basin about two
miles deep and ae many broad at its
highest narrowing fast as it approaches the trail. This is divided into two portions by a heavily
wooded ridge and the whole lies between Kirkup and Green mountains.
The north fork of Rock creek,
two mileB further along, drains
what is evidently the ancient crater of Green mountain. The head
of this oreek is in a flat marshy
bottom surrounded by four towering peaks, the lowest of which is
probably 700 feet above the basin.
The construction of a catchwater
basin here is an easy engineering
feat at a point about two miles up
tbe Two Jack trail, now little used,
which leaving the Murphy creek
trail just beyond the seventh mile
post, crosses Green mountain to
Big Sheep creek. Owing to the
flatness of tbe bottom a dam of no
formidable dimensions would pen
up an enormouB area of water.
This would perhaps be the most
effective of all the subsidiary dams
spoken of.
So it will be seen that before its
becoming necessary to go on to
Murphy oreek and thence to Blueberry for a supply of water for
Rossland concentrators, it will be
poBsible to utilize vast amounts of
water now going to waste at an expense which will not be thought to
be prohibitive.

What the Mines Are Doing Over the
District—Rossland   Doing
There is little to note this week.
The mines are all doing well, and
the only thing of interest is the
Elmore plant, whioh is now nearly
oompleted, still waiting, however,
for the last of the machinery. Mr.
F. Elmore has arrived from London, and the chief officials with him
are carefully superintending the
final opening up of the plant.

Boundary Shipment..
Phoenix, Oct, 10—(Special.) —
This week the combined mines of
the Boundary make a big jump in
the total of ore shipment, an inorease of nearly 3000 tons over last
week, which was itself well up to
the mark. The total this week is
not far from 20,000 tons, occasioned by nearly every one of the nine
mines on the shipping list making
something of an increase over laBt
week's record.
Granby mines to Granby smelter,
9,117 tons; Mother Lode to Greenwood smelter, 3808 tons; Snowshoe
to Sunset smelter,2730 tons; Athelstan to Sunset smelter,210 tons; Oro

and Nelson Bmelter, 1155 tons;
Sunset to Sunset smelter, 488 tonB;
Morrisou to Greenwood smelter
320 tons; Winnipeg to Sunset

The Qranby smelter this week
treated 8600 tons, making 247,290
tons for the year.

What the Magazines are
Some Recent Books and Periodicals
-Topics Interesting- General Readers.
The Royal Magazine for October
is a fair average number, Halliwell
Sutcliffe's smuggling story still
being the chief attraction along
with the adventures of Mr. Dim-
The Pall Mall is along its uBual
line, which is more than usually
of the dilettanti stamp. "The
Queen's Quair" is the chief story,
while one by George Griffith, the
"Lost Elixir," is sufficiently startling to please even the sated reader
of wonders. "The Vineyard," by
John Oliver HobbeB, has itB usual
The Canadian Magazine contain
a timely article on the meeting of
the Chambers of Commerce of the
Empire, at Montreal, and another
on the grain fields of that Northwest which is now attracting such
world wide attention from its growing importance, and its budding
into the Imperialistic idea of becoming the granary of Greater
Lippincott's chief feature this
month is F. Riddale's "A Heir to
Millions," a story of romantic love
with the old tag but modernized
up to date. Besides this there is
the usual complement of short
stories of "the stuff that dreams are
made of," is a quasi scientific artiole on the current Munsey, on the
possibility of reaching the moon
and utilizing it for commercial purposes, The author settles the question definitely in hie own mind by
declaring the problem by no means
insoluble. Another article discusses the probable nominees for
the presidentship of the United
States. The magazine is then
made up with tbe usual literature.
The Cosmopolitan for the present
month is hardly up to its usuul
standard, although it contains a
good story by Seumas Macmanus,
and a curious proposal anent international yacht racing.by Sir Thomas Lipton.
Among tbe new books, "The
Heart of Toil," by Octave Thanet,
will command attention. Descriptive of work among the toiling it is
vividly written, but hardly for all
its brilliancy, enters into the true
' spirit of the workers, being rather
a special bit of writing.
"Under the Rose," by F. Ieham,
the author of the "Strollers" is a
novel of the pseudo historical type
dealing with France as it existed
at the time of Rabelais. The story
is hardly up to the level of the
"Strollers," but the matter is more
pleasing than tbe arohaic garb in
which it is presented to the public.
"The One Woman," by Thomas
Dixon, is a most extraordinary
Bttry of the warring forces of Socialism and human nature. Everything ia a tangle: religion, morals, manner, sooiety dance before
the readers' brain in a veritable
Dance of Death. If the story has
a moral it is hard to read, but the
most apparent one is that the love
of a good woman is deathless, while
the instinct   of  the autochthonal
savage, still linger as deathless in
the breast of the average man.
Ellen Thorneycroft Fowler has
written a powerful novel in Place
and fower, whoBe brilliant dialogue
and pen painting will chain tbe
readers of that firBt proof of that
talented authoress' real powerB—
"Concerning Isabel Camaby."
What Is Being Done Outside the Province.
Liberal Platform
1. The immediate redistribution of
the constituencies of the province on the
basis of population, but allowing a smaller unit of population per seat for the outlying districts.
2. Government ownership, Dominion,
provincial and municipal, of public services of utilities is sound and should be
carried out in British Columbia.
3. Should it be advisable at any time
to grant aid to a railway company such
shall be in cash and not in land and no
bonus of any kind shall be given without definite and effective means being
taken to safeguard the interests of the
province in the management of the road,
control of the freight and passenger
rates, and provision made against such
railway having any liability against it
except for actual cost.
4. Immediate construction of the
Ooast-Kootenay railway; the Cariboo
railway, the extension of the Island rail
way; a railway from Alberni to a point
on the east roast ot the Island; a road In
the northern part of the province from
the coast to the eastern boundary with
an extension to the ^northern boundary;
the railway from Vernon to Midway by
north fork of Kettle river; with necessary
branch lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcement of the act now in
force compelling the scaling of logs by
government scalers.
6. That sich legislation should be
enacted as will result iu making the
lands included in the various dyking
aieas available for cultivation as quickly
as possible and secure prompt payments
of assessments when due.
7. That the government should keep
in touch with the conditions in connection with mining, protecting said industry against combines and trusts and if
necessary for the purpose build and
operate smelters and refineries. No
radical change should be made in the
mining laws without full notice to all
parties interested, giving full opportunity
for d scussion and criticism.
8. Ab the province cai only advance
hy the settlement within its borders of
thrifty and prosperous citizens, and as
Orientals never become cit zens in any
proper sense of the word, we declare it
to be the duty of the government to discourage Oriental immigration and employment by every means within its
power, and «e appeal to our fellow Liberals throughout the Dominion to aid us
in our efforts to protect ourselves against
the ruinous competition of men having a
standard of decency and comfort immensely below that of civilized peoples,
and who shirk every duty and obligation
of citizenship which the law will allow
them to escape.
9. The government ought to prevent
the waste and suffering caused by strikes
and lockouts, and an earnest effort ought
to be made to provide some means of
preventing such strikes and lockouts,
and we approve the adoption of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the province
stands in need of revision. Taxation
should bear upon privilege rather than
upon industry, and no addition should be
made to the debt of the province except
for public works properly ehargeable to
11. The retaining of the resources of
the province as an asset for the benefit
of the people and taking effective measures to prevent the alienation of the public domain except for actual bo a fide
business or industrial purposes, putting
an end to the practice of speculating in
connection with the same.
12. The construction and maintenance of roads throughout the province
to aid in the development of the mining
and agricultural districts.

The Bureau of Russian Ironmas
tore has published the iron trade
statistics of Russia for 1902. The
production of pig iron was 157,490,-
9S1 poods, and that of wrought iron
and steel 117,509,000.
The "Mining Review" of Ottawa
for last month strongly advocates a
reciprocal tariff with the United
States in the case of iron ores
chiefly with a view to fostering that
mining industry in Ontario.
On Long Island, a small piece of
land some twelve miles west of
North Sydney, C. B., a seam of ap
pareutly valuable hematite iron
ore has been discovered, and in itB
vicinity a rich deposit of ochre.
It seems likely that an attempt
will be mado to systematically ex
plore the gold bearing creeks of
Klondike in an ell'ort to trace a
deep auriferous channel, the exist-
once of which is held to have been
proved upon a shaft,which was sunk
on Eldorado creek last year.
The International Geological
Congress at Vienna, which was
opened in August, was attended by
some 400 representatives of all nationalities. It was decided that the
next congress, in 1900, should be
held in the city of Mexico. In
1909 the congress will be held in
The mineral resources of Venezuela are discussed in the SudAfri
kanische VVochenechrift of September. With the exhaustion of the
El Callao mine the production of
gold fell suddenly. Iu 1884 it waB
233,000 ounces, whilst in 1899 it
was only 42,000 ounce3. The deposits of tin, lead, and zinc ores
and asphalt are considerable, but
have not received attention from
foreign capital.
In a Swedish journal Mr. J. Bol-
stad decribea the iron ores of Brazil.
Some of the deposits are extremely
rich. They may be classed under
three heads: 1, hematite ore, 2,
ferriferous mica schist, and 3, iron
Bands. The ores are remote from
England, and coal is wanting; consequently the iron industry is in-
considerable. Manganese ores are>
however, largely mined, and form
25 per cent of the world's supply.
In 1902 there were 5,403 claims
inscribed on the Peru Register of
Mines, as compared with 4920
claims in 1901 and 5178 claims in
1900. It is estimated that about
two thirds of tho olaims are worked. It is well nigh impossible to
aecertain the real value of oreB exported from Peru, inasmuch as no
pains are taken in order to insure
accuracy in the declarations ol
The Egyptian Gazette, says that
no reasonable doubt existB in the
minds of impartial and well informed people iu Egypt that Egypt
and tbe Sudan both contain aome
very valuable gold deposits. The
experience of the Nile Vally company, which during the five months
of last season obtained as much as
£20,000 worth of gold from the
Una Garaiart Mine, is ample proof
- hat the old noikings did not ex
haust the valuable ore worked   by
the ancients.
The aocounts for the year ended
June 30, of the El Oro, Canada,
show a net realised profit of £203,-
437. The repoit states that the
development of the mines has been
prosecuted vigorously during
the period, and with satisfactory results. During the year
110,968 dry tons of ore were treated
in the mills, the average groes
value in gold and silvsr being
$16.58 per ton, of which $13.72 per
ton was recovered. The working
expenses, including all taxes, mining, development, milling, and
other operating charges, were $4.97
per ton. The ore returns blocked
out and awaiting extraction on
June 30 last, are estimated at
543,890 tons.

Rsporfcs of the season's operations at Atlin are of a generally
favorable nature although oarly in
the year work was Beriously interfered with by the high 'waters,
followed by labor troubles. Nevertheless, it is thought that tbe gold
yield will again show a further increase. Good returns have already
been received from McKee, Birch,
Wright, Otter, Slate and Pine
creeks, while there is every prospect that the clear up on Boulder
creek will be exceptionally heavy.
The British American Dredging
company recently completed the
installation of a dredging plant, at
a cost of -1200,000, on its property
in this district, and more attention
has been directed this year to the
development of quartz prospeolt?.
Last month a large scale was
effected of 1900 acres of bench and
creek leases on McKee and Eldorado orecke, and preparations have
already been made for the equipment of this property in readiness
for the early commencement of
The Sunset smelter,, at Boundary
Falls, had to bank one of itB furnaces for a short time last week,
on account of the lack of power on
the C. P, R. to get coke   through.
About 825 men are now on the
payroll of the Granby mines, and
close to a hundred each are em-
* ployed by tbe Snowshoe and
Mother Lode. All the mint is of the
Boundary are still gradually increasing the forces.
It is understood that the people
who recently took hold of the
Volcanic, on the North Fo rk of the
Kettle river, on a basis of over
$100,000, are much pleased by the
tests they have made. 'The property has been worked for years by
R. A. Brown, the locator.
It may be three or four weeks
yet before the Granby smelter will
be enabled to blow in two new furnaces—-Nob. 5 and (i—that are now
ready for operations with the exception of tho two slag hauling
locomoti.es, which have been
shipped from the manufacturers.
There are over 40 men at present
employed in the Bodie mine and
saw mill. The company is getting
the foundation ready for the amalgamating plant that will be installed as soon as the machinery can
be manufactured, the most of which
iB here. The Bodie ia a free gold
proposition and has all the ear
marks of a great mine.
The Golden Eagle mining operations are now progressing at a rapid rate and Manager Straight
wears a look af satisfaction. The
carpenters have almost completed
the work of roofing the machinery
and the works. The work in the
shaft is progressing nicely. The
material now being taken from the
works is highly mineralized, but
tbe ore is estimated to be at a considerable depth yet.
J. W. Ladd, manager of the
mineB being worked at Copper Island, reports that operations at
Copper Island have ceased for the
present, aa tbe capacity of the
furnaces at Irondale is being increased and the whole plant ia being generally overhauled. On tbia
account no more ore is wanted and.'
the mines have olosed, He hopes,
however, that operations will recommence within a short time.
The Leonora mine, on Vancouver
Island, haa an output of 150 tone
of copper ore a day.
The Tyee Copper oompany continue to keep up their high records,
no less than 4787 tonB, exclusive of
customs ore, were Binelted during
August; the value, lea; refining
charges, being $78,885.
The Wellington Colliery oompany ia increasing ita output at the
Comox mines and this will be still
further augmented. Aa fast aa
places are found for them the number employed will be increased.
At present the mines are turning
out about 1000 tonB a day.
Mr. B. F. August, a mining
engineer of Colombue, Ohio, who
recently visited the coal deposits at
Coldwater, in the Newcastle district, haa expressed a very favor
able opinion of the extent of the
occurrences in that region, and for
oertain purposes the quality is all
that oould be desired.    -.
Referring to the recent mining
operations in the Bridge River district, the Lilloet Proapeotor states
that development work at the Ben
D'Or, Lome Pioneer and other
mines here has been in steady
progress, while the Anderson Lake
mines have made thiB year a very
satisfactory showing, last month's
clean up having been a record one.
Plaoer enterprise at North Fork
has, however, been somewhat restricted by water shortage, but better results would have been achieved had the maohinery now on ita
way to the mine arrived earlier.
Pipe for the Camborne water supply system is on the ground, but
ditching for the mains haa not yet
commenced and oannot begin until
the weather clears up, as it is impossible to do outdoor work under

While there is this to be thankful for in the recent elections that
the disturbing element in the Liberal party haB once and for all been
got rid of, although there are one
or two of his henchmen still lingering on politically, it is to be regretted that a more decisive majority had not been accorded to
one party or the other. At present
it would seem that neither side can
reckon upon the formation of a
stable ministry without taking in
in the Socialists. Now men of the
stamp of Hawthornthwaite will
not work with boodlers be they of
either camp and it ia to be feared
that the heads of the parties are
not as yet sufficiently alive to the
temper of the province so as to determinedly read the offenders.
Neglect to do so cost Vanoouver
Liberals two seats if not three.
Neglect tp do bo has put Premier
McBride in his present politioal
position whioh cannot be regarded
as a bed of roses. The trouble is
that English capital cannot be pre
suaded to come into a province
without knowing what it is up
against. It is not go much matter
whether those conditions are Conservative or Liberal, Progressive or
Socialist aB long as they are known
It is the uncertainty which is play'
ing havoc with the best interests
of the province in this regard.
Rossland wants within the next
year over half a million dollars to
start concentration and other reduction works and to get that
money with the uncertainty of
political conditions will be a difficult task indeed.
glance at our advertising columns
will also show who is supporting
that side. We may alBO freely ad
mit that every mine in the camp
which iB working for the good of
camp, and not pursuing a deliberate aim of making its interests inimical to Rossland as t» whole, are
with us. The interests of labor aud
capital are not opposed, but they
can be made to be opposed. The

Beeking to control the affairs
of the city in large matters and in
small, and which ie in continual
harassing litigation with the work-,
men of the camp. Words are cheap
and acts are expensive, and we
claim to be judged on our record.
We know our friends, and we take
this opportunity of thanking them
for their support, but do our friends
always know us?
There is one thing that Laurier
can do whioh will cement the
friendship of the Kootenays, and
that ig to give us a Supreme Court
judge who has interests in the
upper country, and who can therefore be depended upon to make his
residence amongst us. Nor do we
want any man appointed for mere
political services. Such things
ought to be eliminated in the choosing of a judge. His judicial attainments should be the sole reason
of his choice. Now there iB no
man in the Kootenay who would
ba better fitted for the post than
the present member for RosBland.
Mr. J. A. Macdonald is a olever
lawyer. He is a man of moral
worth and conspicuous integrity.
His attitude of mind is distinotly
judicial, and if he would accept the
province the Kootenay could
have no better judicial servant
It is an ineradicable notion on the
part of a good many worthy inhabitants of the United States
that the ultimate fate of Canada is
to be annexed to their country.
This is always cropping up in numberless funny wayB, One of the
latest emanates from a well known
firm of Spokane brokerB in Bending
a circular their to clients.prospeotive
or otherwise. They quote Bernard
Macdonald in supports of the assertion that $20,000,000 have been
paid in dividendB by the mines
of the "Spokane group."
Tbe assertion is true enough but
the appelation is a misnomer. In
the "Spokane group" are included
Rossland, Slocan, Camp McKin-
ney, East Kootenay and Nelson
and these account for nearly seven
and a half of the whole total of the
$20,000,000 referred to. Really
the Spokane broker must have
had the annexation of thiB
country strongly in his mind
when he refers to this great
mining district as a mere appanage
of his city.
It is   regarded   more or leBB  as a
far away issue whose outcome will
barely touch this province for -good
or for evil.   This   is not the case,
inasmuch as there in a very direct
way   in which  British  Columbia
will be affected.   A restricted free
trade within the Empire and protection to all outside the pale, will
have the immediate effect of making Canada a portion of the Imperial highway of trade.   The trade
of the Far East already supports
three huge cities, Shanghai, Hongkong and Singapore, numbering between them cloBe  upon a million
inhabitants    It   iB almost wholly
in   British   hands.   Muoh of that
trade,  as  with that of  Australia,
New Zealand and, to a certain extent, India now goeB to San Francisco, Portland and Puget Sound.
It will   hereafter, ii   Chamberlain
wins out, be centred in the terminals of the great Canadian transcontinental routes, Vanoouver and
Port   Simpson, if the latter ib selected, which is from certain considerations doubtful, by the Grand
Trunk.   Moreover the opening up
of the   Northwest   by the   Grand
Trunk with an eaBy accessible outlet upon the Pacific, will give the
seaborne  grain   trade to   British
Columbia.    A  tax   upon   ft reign
wheat will settle up the Northwest
and will develop   both its population and that of the suitable districts on the Pacific slope in thiB
provinoe enormously,   Canada will
become the granary of the Empire,
and in that granary the Northwest
and  British Columbia will be the
ohief   contributors.   The  Empire
numbers over 400,000,000 people,
and   suoh   a   market  dwarfs   all
others.   But   the  link from East
to   West is Canada, and the  ice
free, sun bathed ports of this prov
ince,   warmed   by   the equatorial
ocean   current, will be  portals of
such a commerce as the world has
never as yet seen.   British Colum
bians   ought to   be Chamberlain's

to impress the fact that its name is
one that they need not be ashamed
of. It is British Columbia and
not "B. C." "B. C." iB liable to be
oonfounded with "D. C," and
while it may be true enough that
"D. C." would like to annex
"B. C," yet it is by no means probable that "B. C." would acquiesce.
It is all very well for British Columbians to know that the Le Roi,
or the Lenora, the St. Eugene or
the Slocan Star are mines within
its limits, and content themselves
with just indicating their locality
by adding the letters "B. C ," but
to people outside the province,
even Canadians, the fact iB by no
means sufficiently impressed that
British Columbia possesses mineB
whioh are quite equal to anything
over the line. The fact haB got to
be impressed and well rubbed in,
and the rubbing has got to be
done by British Columbians, for
there are none other who will do it
for ub.
Dividends Declared by the Properties
Since Their Inception
It is ascertained that the ohief
magistrate is determined to enforoe
what he deemed to be the law in
the enforced dosing down of the
saloons on election night. The
circumstances are that the mayor
ordered the chief of polioe to inform
the various saloons in town to keep
closed until midnight of poling
day. This wag done, but in spite
of the order several saloons opened
as soon as the polls olosed. Mayor
Dean became wrathy and a prosecution hag been resolved on. The
B&loon men olaim that acoording to
preoedent, and British law ig
largely governed by precedent,
never before in this town, or for
the matter of that in any town of
this province, had the saloons been
kept closed after closing hours of
the regular poll. They declare
that the intent of the law is evidently that the electorate shall not
be influenced by the buying of
drinks, and as the po Is are
closed there can be no suoh influence exerted in any such manner. Their opponents say that the
law was meant to stop rioting alter
elections to whioh is retorted that
this meaning must be read into the
aot for it is not there. Moreover
that the aot gays nothing about
midnight, merely that the saloons
must be kept closed on "polling
day," not during the oivil day upon
whioh polling occurs. "Polling
day," it is contended, nutans muoh
the same aB working d y, and
working day oertaiuly does not
mean from midnight to midnight,
which is merely the oivil day as
opposed to the astronomical or the
ecolesiatioal. Certainly the question seems arguable and naturally
the mayor in his strict adheranco
to the lefer of the law (in this
particular case) wants it argued.

the effect of the Chamberlain polioy,

The city oounoil had a quiet
meeting on Tuesday night last, the
business transacted being of the
usual out and dried order. Of
course the mayor had gome ideas
to bring before the aldermen, one
of them being a semi annual tax
on bill posters and restaurant keepers. The restaurant keepers are
quite willing to pay this impost so
as to keep out in luture tbe
ohurches from opening np auxiliary
feeding rooms during carnivals and
public holdidays, unless they are
disposed to pay for the privilege,
The mayor wants the system of
collecting the oity acoouuts to be

better results, and thinks that the
system in vogue at Nelson should
be oopied.

What the Outside Newspapers are Saying.
The fact that the Lanyon Zinc
company's representative is looking for a site on Burrard Inlet
upon which to build a zinc smelter,
and that he has already taken a
bond on zinc mines on Lynn creek,
considerable attention on the Pacific Coast in 1902. It is rumored
that the Gap Nickle mine. Lancaster county, Pa., will be reopened
and explored for nickle ore bodies,
which are believed to exist in it.
At the Mohawk mine, in the Lake
Bhould prove of no trifling import- j Superior Copper district, Michigan,
an araeuide of copper,   nickle   and
Zinc is the one commercial metal
which haa not shown a weakness
during recent years. While copper
broke to below cost, lead went down
to starvation rites, iron quotations
have twice almost ruined the mine-
ownerB during the last five years,
zinc has held firm and continued
to rise. Zinc is crowding lead out
as a metallic base for paint, and it
is crowding copper very close in
several branohes of electrical
science. On the other hand, while
tie demind has increased tremen-
diUBly no big new fieldB have been
opened up. In the Missouri field
the ore tonnage last year was greater, and the production of metallic
zinc was as great aB during any
previous year, but the average percentage of metal per ton of ore was
the lowest in the history of mining
in the state. Iu ottnr words the
ore ia lower grade. It i3 this that
alarm3 the mining world and leads
zino men to cast covetous eyes upon
the British Columbia field.
With the Missouri fields phying
out and the market still expanding,
a new source of supply must be
found at once. No one recognizes
this more readidly than do the
Bmelter people who are depending
on the Mi:souri fields for supply,
and of these the Linyon people are
the most enteiprising. By chooB-
ing Vancouver in preference to any
other place in the northwestern
part of America they have written
it plain and large that Vancouver
is the proper place.
In the mining world there have
been many anomalieB, contradictions aud strango metamorphoses,
but none more strange than this
sudden rise in the zinc business.
It is told of the old placer miners
who crushed aud panned the outcrop of the bonanza Comstook lode
that they frequently had to move
because when they got below the
aurface the "blue stuff" dogged
their riffles, One day a Dutchman
came along and saw that the "blue
stuff" was nitive silver and he
mile twenty millions; but the
placer miners nover saw it until it
was too late. S jrnethiag tbe same
has been happening with regard to
zinc in British Columbia. Only
three or four years ago a zinc ledge
in this provinoe waa not worth
staking, and many a prospector
haa walked over ledgeB that today
would make him rich for life. Now-
a-days metallic zinc is worth more
than lead on the metal market?,
and aB Boon as the proper smelting
facilities are at hand the zinc tonnage of British Columbia is due to
put lead in a second place. If the
entire tonnage is to be handled in
Vancouver, so muoh the better for
Vancouver,—Vancouver World.
The report on the production of
nickle and cobalt in l'J02 prepared
by Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt for the
United States Geological Survey
is now in press.
A deposit of nickle and cobalt on
Meadow oreek, Blackbird district,
Lemhi   county,   Idaho, attracted
cobalt haB been found, and is said
to have been treated successfully
at Haokensack Meadows, New Jersey.
There is said to be a considerable
demand for nickle steel rails, which
have been tried for a number of
years at Cumberland Clap, and are
said to outlast three ordinary rails.
The manufactures of nickle steel
wire rope Is aleo being favorably
considered, as it would be less cor-
rOBive and would have more tenBile
strength than the ordinary steel
wire rope now used.
Mine LaMotte, Missouri, shipped 20 tonB of nickle and cobalt
matte, which yielded 571S pounds
of metallic nickle and 3730 pourds
of cobalt oxide, a decrease of 952
pounds in the shipments of nickle
and of 9C30 pounds of cobalt oxide
as compared with the production
of 1901. Most of the nickle used
in the United States is obtained
from Canada, which country produced in 1902 matte containing
10,1393,410 pounds of nickle, the
product in 1901 having been 8,8S2,-
000 pounds. The value of the
import of nickle in 1902 was Jl,-
437,649, that for 1901 having been
$1,849,020, and the exports valued
at $924,579, the value in 1901
having been $1,521,291.—Lead and

Now I Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen gity, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of camp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mineB 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 district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erect-ion 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 aud properties which will Shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Well'ngton, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen

running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roade, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, which is looated in the centre of tho whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.

Phra, who dies and lives again in
Britain, begins to recount his early adventures—He buys a British slave girl
and sails on a trading voyage to Cornwall and marries a British princess. Is
attacked and captured by the Romans.
Escapes and is murdered by the Druids.
I do confess I can offer no justification for the continuation of my
' story. Once so fairly sped as I waB
on that loug distant day,thus recalled in such detail aB I can remember, the natural and regular thing
would be that there should be an
end of me, with, perhapB, a page or
two added by some kindly scribe to
recall my too quickly Bmothered
virtues. Nevertheless, I write
again, not a whit the worse for a
mischance which siould have silenced many a mau, and in a mood
to tell you of things wonderful
enough to strain the sides of your
modern Bcepticiam, as new wine
stretches a goat skin bottle.
All tbe period between my death
on the Druid altar and my reawakening was a   void, whereof I oan
rook,    rough     with    the   strong
masonry of mother earth, and descending in rugged sides to an uneven floor.   In faot, there could be
no doubt I waB underground, but
how   far  down,   and   where, and
why, oould not be said. All around
me  were  cavernous   hollows and
midnight shadows,   round  whioh
the weird gleam of rude pillars and
irregular walls made a heavy mysterious ooast to a black unoertain
sea.   I sat up and rubbed my eyes
—and as I did so I felt every rag
of clothing drop in dust and shreds
from my person—and peered into
the  almost   impenetrable  gloom.
My outstretched hands on one side
tonohed  the   rough rooks of what
was apparently the arch of a niohe
in this ohamber of the nether world
and   under me   they discovered a
sandy shelf, upon whioh I lay Borne
eight or ten]|feet from the ground,
as near as oould be judged.   Not a
sound broke  the stillness but the
gentle monotony of falling water,
whereof one unseen drop twioe a
painting a faint clue to the wonder
f ul lapse of life are the brief phenomena of my reawakening, whioh
came to hand in sequence as they
are here Bet down.
My first consciousness was little
better than a realization of the fact
that practically I was extinot. To
this pointless knowledge there
came a dawning struggle with the
powers of mortality, until very
slowly, inch by inch, the negative-
ness was driven back, and the
spark of life began to brighten
within me To this moment I cannot say how long the prooees took.
It may have been days or weeks or
months, or ages aB likely as not;
but when the vital flame was kindled the life and self possession
spread more quickly, until at last,
with little fluttering breaths like a
new born baby's, and a tingling
trickle of warm blood down my
shrunken veins, in one strange
minute, four hundred years after
the close of my last Bpell of living
(as I afterwards learned), I feebly
opened my eyes, and recognized
with dull contentment that I was
alive again.
But ohl tbe sorrow attendant on
it! Every bone and musole in me
ached to that awakening, and my
very fibre shook to the stress of
the making tide of vitality.
You who have lain upon an arm
for a sleepy hour or two and suffered as a result ingenious torments
from the new moving blood, think
of the like sorrows of four hundred
years'stagnation! It waB scarcely
to be borne, and yet, like many
other things of whioh the like
might be said, I bore it in bitterness of spirit, until life had trickled
into all the unfamiliar pathways of
my clay, and then at length the
pain decreased and I could think
and move.
In that strange and lonely honr
of temporal resurrection almost
complete darkness surrounded me,
and my mind (with one oertain
consciousness that I had been very
long where I lay) was a chaos of
speculation and fancy and long
forgotten scenes. But as my faculties oame more completely under
control, and my eyes aocepted the
dim twilight as sufficient and convenient to them, they made out
any   but   little.    The  only   facts [minute fell with a faint silver cadence on to the surface of an unknown pool.   I did not fear, I was
not frightened, and  soon as I noticed as a set off to the gloom of my
sullen surroundings the marvellous
purity of the atmosphere.   It was
a preservative itself.   Such an ambient, limpid element could surely
have existed nowhere else.   It was
soft as velvet in its absolute stillness, and pure beyond   suspicion.
It was like some thin, sunless vintage   that  had mellowed   endless
years in the great vat of the earth,
and it now ran with the effect of a
delicate   tonio   through   my inert
frame.   Nor was itB sister and ally
the temperature—less conducive
to my cure.   In that subterranean
place  summer  and   winter  were
alike    unknown.      The    trivial
changes that vex the cuticle of the
world were here reduced to an unalterable average of gentle warmth
that assimilated with   the soulless
air to my huge contentment.   You
cannot   wonder,   therefore, that I
throve apace, and explored, with
increasing strength the limits of
my strange imprisonment.
All about me was fine deep dust
and shreds, which even then smelt
in my palm like remnants of fur
and skins. At my elbow was a
shallow British eating dish, with a
little dust on the bottom, and by it
a broken earthenware pitcher
such as they used for wine. On
my other side, as I left with inquisitive fingers, lay the handless
sword, one of my own I knew, but
thin with age, the point all gone,
rusty and useless. By it, again,
reposed a small jar, heavy to lift
and rattling suggestively when
shaken. My two fingers thrust into the neok told me it was full of
coinB,and I could not but feel a flush
of pleasure in that grim plaoe at the
abortive kindness which had put
food and drink, weapons and
money by my side with a sweet
ignorance, yet certainty of my
future awakening.
But now badding ouriosity Bug
gested wider search, and, rising
with difficulty, I cautiously dropped from my lofty shelf on to the
ground. Then a wish to gain the
outer air took possession of me.&nd,
peering this way and that, a tiny
point of light far away on my right
overhead a doll,   massy root of attracted my attention.    Oa ap
proaching, it turned out to be a
small hole in the oave oat of reach
overhead; but feeling about below
this little star of comfort, the walls
appeared to be soft and peaty to
the touch, so at onoe I waB at work
digging hard, with a pointed stone;
and the farther I went the more
leafy and rough became the material, while hope sent my heart
thumping against my ribs in tone
to my labor.
At last, impulsive, after half an
hour's work, a fancy seized me that
I could heave a way out with my
shoulder. No sooner said than
done. I took ten steps baok, and
then plunged fiercely in the dark
ness of the great oavern into the
mouldy screen.
How oan I describe  the   result!
It gave way and I shot in a whirlwind  of dust   into  a   sparkling
world 1   I rolled   over and  over
down a spangled firmament, dutch
ing in my bewilderment my hands
full of blue and  yellow   gems   at
every    turn,    and   slipping   and
plunging with a  sirocco  of color,
red,    green,   sapphire,  and   gold
flying round before my bewildered
face.   I finally came to a stop, and
sat up.   You will not wonder that
I glared round me when I  say   I
was seated at the foot of all   the
new marvels of a   beautiful   limestone knoll, clothed from  top   to
bottom with bluebells  and  primroses,   spangled   with   the  young
spring greenery of hazel and beech
overhead, and backed by the cloudless blue of an April sky!
On top of this fairy mountain,
at the roots of the trees that crowned it, hidden by bracken and undergrowth, was the round hole
from whioh I had plunged; nor
need I tell you how, remembering
what had happened in there, rubbed my eyes, and laughed and
marvelled greatly at the will of
the Inscrutable, whioh had given
me so wonderful a rebirth.
To you must be left to fill up the
picture of my sensations and slowly recurring faculties. How I lay
and basked in the warmth, and
slowly remembered everything: to
me belongs but the strange and
simple narrative.
One of my first active desires
was for breakfast—nor, as my previous meal had been four centuries
earlier, will I apologise for this
weakness. But where and how
should it be had? This question
9oou answered itself. Sauntering
hither and thither, the low shoulder of the ridge was presently crossed and a narrow footway in the
woods leading to some pleasent
pastures entered upon. Before I
had gone far up this shady track,
a pail of milk in her hand, and
whistling a ditty to herself, oame
tripping towards me as pretty a
maid as had ever twisted a bit of
white hawthorn into her amber
I let her approach, and then,
stepping out, made the most respectful salutation within the
knowledge of ancient British courtesy. But, alas! my appearanoe
waB against me, and Roman fancy had peopled the hills with jolly
satyre, for one of which no doubt
the damsel took me. As I bowed
low the dust of centuries cracked
all down my back. I was tawny,
and grim, and unshaved, and completely naked—though I had forgotten it—and even my excellent
manners could not warrant my
disinganuousness against such a
damning appearanoe. She screamed with fear, and, letting go her
milk jar, turned and fled with a
nimblenesB whioh would have left
even the hot old wood god himself
far in the rear.
However, the milk remained,
and, peering into the pitcher, here
seemed the very thing to recuperate me by easy stages. So I retired to a cosy dell, and, between
copious draughts of that fine natural liquor, overwhelmed with
blessings the sleek kine and the
comely maid who milked them.
Indeed, the stuff ran into my withered processes like a freshet stream
into a long dry oountry, it consoled
and satisfied me, and afterwards I
slept as an infant all that night
and far into another sun.
The next day  brought several
needs with it.   The chief of these
more food, more olotheB, and a profession   (since  fate seemed determined to  make me take another
spaee of existence npon the world).
All three were satisfied eventually.
As for the two, I was not particular aa to fashion or diet, and easily
supplied them.   In the course of a
morning   stroll   a   shepherd's hut
was discovered, and on approaching it oautiously   the   little shed
turned out to be empty.   However,
the owner had left several sheepskin mantles and rough homespun
clothes on pegs  round the walls,
and to these I helped myself sufficiently  to convert an unclothed
oaveman into a passable yeoman.
Also, I made free with his store of
oak cakes and coarse cheese, putting all not needed back upon hie
Here I waB again, fed and clothed, but what to  do next was the
question.   To consider the knotty
matter, after spending most of the
day in  purposeless   wandering  I
went up to the top of the hill—the
one that,  unknown to  everyone,
had the  cavern  in  it—and there
pondered   the  subject long.   The
whole face of the country perplexed
me    It was certainly Britain, but
Britain so amplified and altered aB
to be   hardly reoognizable.   Wide
fields were everywhere, broad roads
traversed the hills and valleys with
impartial  straightness,   the great
woodland of tbe earlier times were
gone or muoh curtailed, while wonderful white buildings shone here
and there among the foliage, and
down away in the weBt, by a river,
the sunbeams glinted on  the roofs
and temple  fronts  of a   fine, unknown town.   That was the place,
seemed to me at length, te refit for
another voyage on the strange sea
of ohanoe; but I was too experienced
in the ways of the world to travel
citywards  with an empty wallet.
While meditating upon the manner
in wh'ch this deficiency might be
met, the golden store of coins left
in the oave below suddenly preseni-
ed themselves.     The   very thing!
And, as a heavy purple clouds were
piling up round the presently sinking sun, earth and sky alise pre
saging a storm that evening, the
cavern would be a convenient place
to sleep in.
Finding the entrance with some
difficulty, and notioing, but with
no special attention, that it looked
a little larger than when last Been,
my first need was fire. This I had
to make for myself. In the pouch
of the shepherd's jerkin waB a
length of rough twine; this would
do for matches, while aB a torch a
resinous pine banch, bruised and
split, served well enough. Fixing
one end of the string to a bush, 1
took a turn round a dry stick, and
then began laboriously rubbing
backwards and forwards. In half
an hour the string fumed pleasantly, and, something under tbe hour
—one waB nothing if not patient in
that age—it charred and burst into

There is little chance apparently
of materially reducing the city's
overdraft at the bank, unlesB the
taxes oome in freely for this year.
A bonus was offered to those who
paid up before the end of last
month, and it is stated that the
mayor himself is vigorously assisting on the collection of the taxeB
going to one if not more of the prinoipal ratepayers himself, threatening prosecution if the taxes are not
paid. On the other hand those
ratepayers who are not willing or
unable to pay immediately declare
they have to the end of the year
before the taxes are really due.
The question is of course arguable.

Early in the week a couple of
ladies went down to the city cemetery to visit the grave of an infant
child of one of them. On arriving
there they discovered the
gate closed, but there was a
band of cattle in the lower part,
and voices were heard of a couple
of meu, evidently in charge. There
was not a grave iu the whole place
which had not been exposed to the
ravages of these or other cattle.
Where the graveB were unenclosed
they were trampled over, where
they were protected by strong
fenciug, they had escaped, except
that the cattle had reached over
and eat everything within reach.
Weak fences were thrown down.
One grave recently surrounded by
a low stone wall was trampled all
over. There was not a flower or a
tuft of graBB in sight, all had been
eaten up.
The grave of a child buried last
week had holes in it several feet
deep, the earth being loose. These
the ladies filled up. The grave of
Thomas the engineer, recently buried, was trampled out of recognition and its Bite could not have
been told but for the presence of a
few BcrapB of pasteboard aud a card
bearing the inscription "From the
Miners of the Josit," which evidently had been attached to a floral wreath. There was not a vestige of the numerous wreaths in
sight. The condition of the cemetery wbb such that it resembled a
stock yard and could only have
been caused by cattle remaining
over night or frequenting the place
for two or three days in succession.
Instantly on reaohing the oity
one of the ladies telephoned the
city hall, and waB referred to Mr.
Long who promised to send a man
down'at once to fix up the graves
and to see that the cattle were no
longer permitted to pass through
the enclosure. This bad been done
by permission of Mayor Dean. According to the state ments of the
ladies the depredations could not
have been caused by any band of
cattle merely passing through.
They muBt have camped there.
The cemetery ie surrounded by a
strong wire fence, so arranged as to
prevent the incursions of cattle
and indeed of muoh smaller animals, bo as to prevent this very
thing happening. If cattle are allowed free acceBB, however, the oity
might have saved the expensive
Years ago, while the present
mayor was chairman of the Board
of Works, similar atrocitieB were
permitted, and it is doubtful
whether it could be clearly shown
that all the graves are in the old
burial ground were reverently
transferred. Of tb.9 irreverence
and the barbarism of the whole proceedings, the public press was then
full. One of tho looal ministry
spoke strongly at a grave-
Bide of the iniquity of the whole
affair, and a fence was put up
round the new cemetery. The fenoe
iB now apparently treated as if it
were not. That God's Aoie Bhould
be bo treated is a disgrace to the
city and its administration. It ia
left to Rossland out of all Christendom to turn the resting place of
those gone before into a stockyard.
