tempting as to allure the average Amer
ican to embrace them, or to favor thc
formation of syndicates to invest in that
direction, but the requirements may bo
mentioned to put adventurers in possession of facts that may save thiiu
considerable expense nnd trouble, The
term of u lease Is 15 years. To get it one
must deposit 100,000 rubles (181,800),
All the preliminary work or prospecting
must be completed within the first three
years of the time of the lease. That,
however, is only the starter.
The .essee must provide and maintain
an assistant surgeon at the works, and
annually pay the government $515 for
Ihe support of a physician. He must
also maintain a police force in the ratio
of one to 30 workmen employed and
furnish the force with provisions, clothing and comlori.ibl... lodgings, etc., and
pay to tlie crown as wagea tor each
policeman 600 rubles and $1,430 for an
assistant engineer und police inspector.
All these officers must be provided with
what ihey may wish, including eoipfort-
able homes, transportation and even
luxuries, not omitting Murnm's extra
dry on special occasions. A justice of
the peace must also be maintained and
supported. In the meantime the
inhabitants with their reindeer must
bave the privilege of roaming at wi I
over the leased tract, hunting, fishing or
enjoying themselves as they see fit, providing they don't carry off tbe leased
But these are not all that are required
of the lessee. He is not allowed to em*
ploy foreigners only by particular, leave
and sanction of tbe governor-generul in
each case, As security for certain duties
and taxes he must submit to the retention of $15,150 deposit made on the
auction day, and in case of his failure to
observe the terms of his lease the $15,100
will be forfeited. The lessee is subject
to all existing mining laws and to those
which may hereafter be enacted. These
are enough, but there are others equally
as arbitrary and exac'ing, any of which
is sufficient to discourage any freo born
American from taking' chances upon
renting Siberian placer or quartz
locations.—Western Mining World.

Says Peruna, the Catarrh Cure,
Gives Strength and Appetite.
Hon. *7. N. Roach, United States Senator From North Dakota.
Hon. Wa N. Roach, United States Senator from North Dakota, personally endorses Peruna, the great catarrh cnre aud ionic.    In a recent letter to the  Peruna Medicine Company, at Columbus, Ohio, written from Washington, D. C,
Senator Roach says:
"Persuaded by a friend I have used Peruna as a tonic, and I am glad
to testify that it has greatly helped me in strength, vigor and appetite.
I have been advised by friends that it is remarkably efficacious at a cure
for thc almost universal complaint of catarrh'"
.Senator Roach's home address is LttimOH, North Dakota.
Peruna is not a gMN, nor an experimint; it is an abwilute, scieiititio certainty, Peruna cures catarrh wherexer located. Peruna bus uo substitutes—no
rivals. Insist upon having Peruna. Let no oue persuade >nu that some other
remedy wil! do nearly as well. There is no other systemic remedy for catarrh
but Peruna. Address the Peruna Medicine Company, 1'tiluuibun, Ohio, for a
free book on catarrh, written by Dr.  Hartman.

The centre of tho Eight-Hour
storm has now shifted from this district towards Victoria, where the
Silver-Lead Mines Association has a
strong lobby at work. In the face of
a hostile house they will seek a repeal
of the Eii>bt-Hour law. In the
present Legislature their efforts are
doomed to defeat.
Then, in vase of a probable dissolution of the Assembly, we may
expect a red hot campaign throughout
the province, fought between labor
organizations and the capitalists Thi*
also can end in only one way, in the
sustaining in power of the party
pledged to the Eight-Hour law. That
wili be the question upon which
candidates, Liberal, Conservative or
Independent, will stand or fall.
In the meantime the idle mines of
Sloqau will remain idle. The opposing
parties here can come to no settlement
as long as the Silver-Lead Mines
Association see any chance to obtain
legislation favorable to them in the
near future.
Unless Ihe Setfllin Government can
show a better front than they have as
yet this session, the people will welcome a dissolution. As long as then
remains a chanco of upsetting the
Government, the present intolerable
state of affairs iu the Slocan will continue. Give tho electors a chance of
showing the Silver-Lead Mines As
sociation how unimportant it is politically, nnd the rt-Hour trouble in tin
Blocan will be over.

The Nelson Miner takes exo- ptii.i
to thut clause in tho constitution of
the New Denver Miner's Union thut
says that mining is a hazardous
business, claiming it is not a dangerous calling. Oh no! The handling^!
dynamite, which every miner must d
daily, is not risky, a« can be seen by
tho stand tho Miner took on th-
presence of tho powder houses in
Nelson. Does the miner take any
more risk thau an oflke clerk? Why
of course not, the risk from a falling
roof, caving wulls, giant powder, bad
air and rotten timbers sre onljJ little
incidents in a miners daily lite that
makes it worth living. Tho risks are
so slight ihat he should be willing to
work for nothing just for the pleasure
of knowing that he i,.- alive at (he end
of his shift. That should be pay
enough for any miner. The Nelson
Miner knows; it is an authoiity on

Tbe Sandon Mining   Review  hss
sgain shifted its lines of attack on ihe
Miners' Union and  is now   hurling
some patriotic columns   among   tbe
enemy,    The Review bas   broken cut
in several spots.   In the first  pi,ice it
tried to show that the Legislature had
no right to shorten hours and  forbid
the sacred    right  of contract.    This
was before the Conservative Convention at   Kamloops had endorsed  the
law.    Then    the   Review   took   the
stand that the Unions were in fault in
enlisting miners who  were not above
the average, evidently  wishing  these
men to go to work and  break   up the
union of  the better men.    Then  an
agitation to cut out  the penal clause
of the law was begun,   an.  effort   to
keep   square   with   the   Silver-Lead
Mines  Association   and    tbe 8-hour
Conservative  plank,   and   lately   we
have been     hearing   how   wrong   the
Unions were in  resisting the   importation of aliens    The  latest, possibly
not  thc   last,   stand   taken   by   the
champion of the Association is possibly
moro  ridiculous thin   the rest,    The
Western Federation of  Miners is an
alien organisation!     And  what about
the S-L Mines Association?     Does it
not takes its orders from  residents of
Great Britain and the   United States?
The Oddfellows is an alien  organisation; tbe   Workmen, the Knights  of
Pythias, the Typographical Union, and
many others have headquarters out of
Canada.    What of them?   There '- no
disloyalty among their Canadian members.
The habit of covering n«uos with
the Union Jack is a well-known expedient of the party to which tlie Review itlitur owns political ul^uia.QQo
