flrecn, On The King's Speech.
R. F. Green, in speaking during Ihe
debate on t i Speech from the Throne,
had mu"h say upon what waa not
mentioned in il.a Speech, that waa the
silver-lead mining and smelting problem.
He was glad that the Government had
measures in contemplation which promised lo encourage the introduction of capital into tlio Province. The railway to
the northern part of the Province was an
important proposition which should receive ihe aid of the Government, and
the same applied to the Coast-Kootenay
railr-.i,".'!. and tlio railway to the northern
part of the Island. There was another
matter, however, which he considered
eipially important with that of transportation, which he thought theGovern-
ment should have included in tbe Speech
bad Ihey justly realised its significance.
He referred to the question of tbe treatment of tlie lead ores of the Slocan. In 180ft
there were practically no lead ores mined
in East Kootenay district. In one short
year tl.e industry had jumped from practically nothing to 38.000,000 pounds. It
was estimah-d, with facilities for getting
rid of their ore, it would double in tho
next year. Altogether in the Slocan
there was produced in 1899, 16,660,000
pounds of lead. Last year the product
was 2d.000.000 pounds, an increase of
3,340,000 pounds, and they had come to
the present year with a prospect of having a st ill more prosperous year for the
lead industry. But the American Smelter Trust came to Ihe conclusion that it
did not want onr ores. Whether it wus
that thev had ore sufficient in their own
countiy, or whether Ihey had thousands
of tons of lead piled up in vaults, simply
seeking to regulate the supply, tbat they
might hold the price of lead to a higher
figure than before, he did not knor. He
did know tliat they simply refused on the
1st of Janmiiv. 1901, to re-affirm the contract they had made with the Slocan
mines in the previous year. The consequence of that was that a number of the
mines were shut down. A number of
others seemed to be able to get some little terms from the Smelter Trust and
had closed down partly, or limited their
output. Some of the mines, notably the
Lat.t Chance, were limited to a certain
number of tons per day. Tills state of
affairs was serious; that they should have

He was a native of Peterborough, Out,
and c.-iine to Silverton, with bin brother
lu the early days ot the camp. Besides
liis brother, he leaves Iwo sisters in O 11-
bidding ol a foreign corporation. He
hoped that the Government, having here
facts before it, would bring down a measure of relief, in the way of a subsidy to a
lead smelting industry largo enough to
treat the output of tl.e Province. He did
not care where (he smelter was situated,
although he naturally believed that the
place for it was in the heart of the lead
country, lt would not be sufficient to reduce the ore to bullion. They must havo
means of refining it, so that the product.
might be placed on the market. To-day
they were in a position of having the
riches of the earth io their hands, without being aide to make use of them. He
believed that the Government should
step in and establish a Government
Smelter and Refinery within the Province or aid the establishment of the industry. That was the policy whieh a
progressive government should, at this
time, undertake.

West Indies. The result, it is understood,
will shortly lie communicated to the
Washington government in such form, it

Cape Town, Feb. 25.—Colonel Plum
er engaged Dewet yesterday near Dis
selfontein, on the south bank of the
Orange river, capturing a gun and a
pompom and taking 50 prisoners. The
Peers were scattered and are being
pursued by Colonel Plumer. It Is reported that General Dewet escaped to
the opposite bank ln a boat and Is now-
fleeing with a handful of followers.
It is reported from a Boer source
from Zeerust that General Delarey has
been captured.
London, Feb. 25.—A correspondent
of the Dally Mail, with Hennlker'B col
umn, wiring Saturday, says:
General Dewet was routed yesterday
by Colonel Plumer, with whom were
Colonels Hennlker, Craddock, Jeffreys
and Drabbo. This success was preceded by a series of desperate attempts
on the part of the Boers to escape from
the water belt of the Orange and the
Hrak rivers.
General Dewet, after unsuccessfully
attempting to cross the Brak at Klip
drift and the Orange at Read's drift
and Marks drift, moved along the bank
of the Orange with one gun and one
pompom and laagered opposite Kam-
eel drift. At dawn Colonel Plumer left
Welgeverdon, 22 miles west of the
Hoer camp, and moved northeasterly.
At Zurugat he attacked the enemy,
taking 40 prisoners. The pursuit was
continued during the afternoon, the
Roers moving toward Hopetoun. Toward evening the leading troop sighted
the enemy, who had laagered beyond
the range. Colonel Owen charged the
spot where the Boer artillery was supposed to be and captureo the whole of
It. The enemy fled, leaving their
horses ready saddled and their cooking
pots full. According to the latest reports only 400 Boers recrossed to the
north side of the river. The Orange is
greatly swollen.
London, Feb. 25.—The Daily Telegraph publishes the following from
De'aar, February 24:
Mr. Steyn addressed the Boers yeB-
terday and told them they must shift
for themselves, returning to Orange
river colony as best they could. He
and General Dewet took 300 of the best
horses with which to escape.

The expert's report is said to be favorable on oil lands near Lewiston,
Ore of remarkable value la being taken out of the Morning Glory. Good
progress Ib being made from the raise
from the second level. Drifting ls also
going on us usual. '
An unpsually high grade of ore is reported to be coming out of all the
stopes ln the Republic mine.
Rapid work ls being done on the
Quilp shaft, which Is now 200 feet below the third level of the mine, and Is
520 feet below the cropplnga of the
ledge, according to Republic advices.
After sinking another 100 feet a crosscut will be driven to tne ledge.
The working shaft of the Mountain
Lion has reached a depth of 130 feet
below the lower level of the mine, or
a total perpendicular depth of 555 feet.
It will be pushed te the 600 foot level
before a crosscut Ib i un on the ledge.
Following Is the schedule of rates
to ba charged for the treatment of custom ore hy the Republic mill, as announced by Manager D. C. Jackllng:
For ores containing 6-10th of an
ounce or less of gold per ton, $4.50.
For ores containing \% ounces, $7.50
per ton.
On ores running between these
amounts a scale increasing with every
additional quarter of an ounce of gold
from the lower to the higher will be
On ores containing one ounce of gold
or more the mill will pay for 90 per
cent of the assay value and on ores
running less than one ounce, 85 per
The mill will pay for 50 per cent of
the silver shown In assay at market
In addition to these charges a flat
sampling rate of 75 cents per ton will
be charged.
The drift on the Flag Hill Is in 150
feet from the crosscut tunnel. The
ledge Is between flve, six, and seven
feet wide. The values are regular, but
the average Is about $20 per ton.
Stoning has begun on the Ben Hur
and the output will be shipped to the
Republic mill as soon as arrangements
for Its treatment have been completed.
All work has been suspended on the
San Poll and will probably not be resumed until the shipment of ore be-
It Is reported from Sheridnn camp
that the ledge has been cut on the Tom
Quick. The Tom Quick ls<owned by
Peter McCormlck nnd partner. The
pronerty has always been regarded
with great favor by the miners of the
ramp and In Its opening will either
elate or depress the hopes of many.
The Republic company haB made
somo preparation for constructing a
high bridge across Granite creek near
the sampling mill. It will not be constructed, however, until some arrangement has been made with the mining
companies for the treatment of the
ores. It will coat a considerable Bum
of money and will not be particularly
beneficial to the Republic company unless It is used for the delivery of ore
from other mines to the mill.
The stones and drifts and ore bins
are full of broken ore at the Quilp and
work has therefore been suspended on
the raise, as the ore taken out would
have to go over the dump and much of
It lost, owing to ItH friable character.
The shaft ls 3fi0 feet below the tunnel
level. No other work Is ln progress on
tho mine.
Too much  service  steals our  time
from serious thoughts.
Evil fastens on  us rnly because It
finds affinity In us.
It Is expected that the ore output of
tbe Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and Victoria will be Increased to 1200 or 1300
tons dally, when the capacity of the
smelter at Grand Forka is doubled.
At present about 700 tons are sent out
ench day.
Morrison Mines, Limited, has made a
year's contract with the Standard Pyritic Smelting company to ship 3000
tons of oro monthly.
The second payment, consisting of
$20,000, has been made at Rossland by
the Onandago Mining company to J. M.
and C. B. Etner and J. and D. Cromie.
A petition will be presented to the
government at this session of the legislature, asking for tho continuation of
the Ten Mile wagon road from Oylwln
to the Kokanee summit.
During the weok ending Saturday
the Granby smelter at Grand Forks
treated 4410 tons of ore, principally
from the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides and
Victoria mines.
In the supreme court sitting at Rossland, Chief Justice McColI presiding,
a jury awarded L. W. McKelvey, a miner. $3000 for damages sustained In an
accident In the Le Roi mine last September.
It waB reported from Cnmp McKinney, B. C, at the office of the Waterloo
that the upper drift was full of good
grade ore from the new workings be:
low the main drift level and the company has decided to put the stamp mill
In commission again right away If water can be had.
Frank Sherry expects to have two
carloads of ore out from the Black
Prince, Sloean, by February 20. He
has a fine looking body of ore In Bight.
Ore Ib commencing to come In In the
breast of the drift being run on the
Neepawa. on Ten Mile. Tho management expects to open up a big shoot.
The Sheep Creek Light * Power com
pany haa filed articles of incorporation. The company Is formed to furnish electrical power and light for

Patrick S. Byrne.
At Phoenix a force of men has
been sot at work clearing tho site for
the new four compartment shaft, work
on whicli will be started by the Miner-
Graves syndicate this spring. This
main working shaft .will be located
south of the Old Ironsides Bhaft No. 2,
and the site was selected for advantageous working of the several large
properties operated by the syndicate ln

An excellent allowing la reported
from a young silver lead camp, flve
miles from Kellogg and two and one
half mllea up Pine creek from the
Coeur d'Alene branch of the O. R. & N.
The rush to Iron Creek, the new
South Hulf camp, continues. Mine*
and proapectora are well pleased with
the promise of tbe camp, said to be
the best on the South Half. Clalma are
being 8taked In all dlrectlona.
A rich strike has been reported from
Camp Aspen on Palmer mountain,
Wash. Although mado early during
the winter, the facts have been suppressed until the present time for various reasons. The find waa made on the
Bellevue claim and waa diacovered in
running a drift at a depiu of 75 feet,
and wns in the nature of a blind lead.
So far as new discoveries In minerals go there haa been little doing in the
Coeur d'Alenea for aeveral months, but
there la almost a certainty that they
will follow each other in quick succession in the future, and generally
under such conditions that they will
become immediately available for the
extraction of ores.
A rich strike has been made on the U.
S. lie Roi mine, near Lie town of Curlew, Wash., and has caused considerable excitement among the shareholders
of that property. The ledge encountered haa proved to be at teast 10 feet
in width and the average assays across
this vein go $93.84 in gold, $1.50 in silver and $8.25 in copper, making a total
of $103.59 per ton.
Gold creek, the new mining district,
30 miles east of Kendrick, Idaho, promises to be the scene of active mining
operations this season. Several outfits
have already gone Into the district to
prepare for work as soon as the weather will permit. Some will operate on
placer ground and are getting ready.
The prospects for water for sluicing
are not what are desired. Some quartz
locations have heen made and arrangements to develop the prospects at an
early date nre completed. Men coming
out say there is more activity In the
Gold creek district now than uny time
slnco the discovery of tne Syndicate
M. Bagley, who la In from Iron creek,
near Keller, Wash., where recent very
rich strikes caused a small stampede,
says that a great many prospectors are
coming in from Republic and other
points. He reports that claims are being staked in every direction. James
Harvey is expected in from the creek
in a day or two and his report Ib being
awaited with interest. All seem to
have a good opinion of the camp, however. John King, the well known miner who was recently there, Bays: "It
looks like a mining country and there
is no question about the values unless
the aasayer is wrong."
With the opening of spring the outlook for mining in Baker City, Ore.,
diatrict la better than it has been for
many years. A number of mining en-
gineera of national reputation spent
the winter here examining the underground workings of a number of the
largest mines .with the result tbat the
Golconda haa already changed management, having passed to a new syndicate
which proposes to complete the pur
chase after working the property with
the new machinery already provided.
The Vesuvius mine has resumed
work and there will Boon lie a general
activity among the Buffalo Hump
mines. During the present winter the
mine has been closed down and on moat
of the properties work has been suspended for the winter season. The
mine la one of the best in that section
und the starting of work on the tunnel
will mean a great deal for the district.
Thero has never been a good reason
given for the cloalng of the mine, but,
the news of Its resuming work will
mean much for the other mines, which
will also start up aoon with the opening of spring.
At Loomls, Wash., the Copper World
strike continues to be the talk of the
camp and it la generally atlmulatlng
prospecting and development on the
different clalma adjoining lt. There Is
quite a flow of water out of the tunnel
nnd any iron instrument left for a
short time in lt becomes thickly coated
with copper. The owners of the Copper King claim, adjoining the Copper
World on the west and carrying the
samo lead, aro actively opening up
their property. They have a shaft
down 10 feet and will continue sinking. The ledge at this point Ib 10 feet
wide nnd shows atreaks of the same
high grade ore cut In tho Copper World
tunnel. The compreaaor building at
the Puritan mine on Go.,1 Hill Is about
completed and the work of setting up
the machinery is rapidly progresalng.
AU the machinery Ib on the ground and
a mile and a half of flume ls nearlng
completion. This flumn will convoy
the water used to run the compressor,
nlso the mill, when built. The work on
the Ella claim, near Oolden, preparatory to tho beginning of permanent development, has been completed.

Of the U. S. Treasury Recommends
Dr. Llewellyn Jordan.
Dr. Llewellyn .Jordan, Medical Examiner of (J. S. Treasury Department,
graduate ol Columbia College, and who
served three yeurs at Weat Point, haa
the following tu nay ol Peruna:
."Allow me to express my gratitude to you for the benefit derived
from your wonderful remedy.
One short month has brought
forth a vast change and I now
.consider myself a well-man after
months of sutler!ng. Fellow suf*
ferers, Peruna will cure you."
Catarrh is a system io disease curable
..nly by sys*.ciiiii' treatment. A remedy that cures catarrh must aim directly at the depressed nerve centers.
This is what l'eruna doea. Peruna
immediately invigorates the nerve-centers which give vitality to the mucous
membranes. Then catarrh disappears.
Then catarrh ia permanently oured.
Peruna cures catarrh wherever lo-
mteil. Peruna is not a guess nor an
experiment—it is au absolute sclentiflo
certainty, l'eruna has no substitute!
—no rivals. Insist upon having Peruna.

You're bilious, got a cold, you have a throbbing sensation in your head, a bad taste in your mouth, your
eyes burn, your skin is yellow with dark rings under your eyes, your lips are parched and you feel ugly and
mean, as if you wanted to kick a lame infant or kill a canaiy bird. Your system is full of bile not properly
passed off, and what you need is a cleaning up inside. Don't continue being a bilious nuisance to yourself
and those who love you, but send out at once for a box of CASCARETS and work off the cold while you sleep.
Be sure you get CASCARETS!   Don't let them sell you a fake substitute.

Mr. R, F. Green hns proposed to the
Government that they estnbli'h a
Government Smelter and Refinery in
the Slocan, or at some most conviemci't
point, to handle the lead ores of the
Province. Such asch'uno has much to
recornuiend it. Not only would the
reduction work* pay for themselves
directly, besides settling the lead
smelting problem, but they would indirectly be a source of much revenue
to the Province in thn matter ofthe
mineral tax nnd the licences winch
would be taken out by men-hunts and
the taxes whicli would be paid by
them if the mining industry here was
encouraged in this practical wny.

Dear Sir:—

the editor of the "Ledge" considers himself debarred from matins, nny reply to
my letter, which you were good ehoimh
to imlilifih in your issue dated 2" February, by the-fact that I did not si^n my
nama thereto. My object io addre'ssinp
you now is to supply tha necessary information; if the "ledge''still linds itself iinnble to justify its impudent attacks
upon religious belief we tdinil know lo
what cause its silence is to be ascribed,

Those fanatics, wiio are branded ss
"Orangemen" are busy at the present
time in passing resolutions condemning
the recent yote in the House of Commons regarding the anti-Roman
Catholic clause in the British coronation oath. The cluuse was inserted
in the oath at a time when it and the
Orange order both had some reason for
existence, but happily that time has
long been past We are glad to s?e
that only ninteen members of the
Canadian House of Commons were
bigoted and narrow- mindei' enough
to vote against the resolution.

nothing to the government'! credit
while they hnve such makeshift rortdi
here. The fmuirr of this hill, Jlr
Oliver, bis tuL't'll a leaf out (it the
book of a foriimr superintendent of,
the Yellowstone National Pit!.-, who
made just moll regulations ai thin bill
covers to keep freighter* from crossing
the Park. This regulation was pooh
recinded, as the freighters, to get
even, had eight inch tin-s tacked upon
the outsido of the wheels of their
freight wagons, loaded up with rock
and tcok a trip over tho imw government roads and as a consequence cut
thorn up badly. If our government
on this side of the mountains would
run their road building on as broad a
basis as they want the wagon tires on
the other side of I lie range, people
here would be thankful.
