The Margin of Profit Against Producer
and Consumer.
The paralysis in the lead trade and the
consequent partisl suspension of lead
mining bas become a subject of more
than passing interest, buys tbe Idaho
State Tribune. The failure of the Coeur
d'Alene and other mine operators to form
a compact or make a specific contract
with the smelter combine for future output of ores demonstrates to the full satisfaction of all tlinikini! people that industrial enterprise is fast becoming
subservient to speculative interests.
Notwithstanding the marked decline in
tlie market price of crude ore and spelter
it is known and understood that market
quotations are still such as to guarantee
to all lead producers in the Coeur d'Alenes large profits and rich dividends on
a nominal output. There are scores of
instances where the mine operators ir
this district have run their mines st full
capacity at market prices and a margin
of profit far below present quotations.
But a crisis has been reached in the
affairs of this country in which the producer of wealth is no longer the master
of the markets nor bas he even a voice in
the sale or distribution of his products.
Between the miner of lead aud (lie
consumer of it stands the gigantic smelter end lead trusts which rise up like a
wall of adamant between producer snd
consumer, and exacts tribute from industrial enterprises to the dettiment instead
of the benefit of trade and commerce.
In extenuation of its position the smelter trust makee a long array of figures
showing the vast quantities of lead ore
on hand, and uses this accumulation to
force a reduction of further output on the
part of the lead mines of the country.
And this tliey call overproduction.
But behind the smelter trust stands the
great lead trust which still demands and
receives an abnormally high price for
manufactured lead products. To such
an extent is the extortion ol combinations
against consumers practised that th i restriction of consumption is prevalent the
country over. The consumption of lead
paints has fallen off nearly one-third
within the last four months in conse-
quenoe of prices which exceed thealiilily
of consumers to purchase. The manufacture of- while lead aod lead pipe Is
known to be a simple prirtess, requiring
considerable capital in the aggregate, but
when compared with the volume of output the capital invested is one-tenth of
tbe capital invested in the production of
crude ores, and ytt tlie margin of profit
between tbe raw material and the manufactured article is as (our to ten. Tbe
o-ine operator assumes nearly all the
risk in the production of tbe metals besides paying high wages and extraordinary incidental expenses snd yet there is
a margin of approximately seven cents a
pound between the taw material and the
manufactured article and onlv four cents
per pound between the ore body in the
lifart of the mountains and its delivery
to the combine. This shows a marked
dissimlitudc of profit in favor ot the manufacturer over the producer of raw materials, notwithstanding the mining end of
the indusiry pays more than three-fourths
ot the entire expense of production. Nor
is thst all. lt is ssid that at the recent
conference in New York City, between
the smelter trust and the mine operators,
the combine reached out to Ihe small
prospectors and new discoverers of ore
bodies now under development, and an
attempt was made to lorce the large operating mines to yield to the msndstes o'
the combine In all its demands in an
agreement to completely ostracise from
the markets all new mining companies
who may open up new ore bodies and
bid for a share ol the public patronsge.
To what extent this agreement wu consummated the future alone csn tell. It
is tessonably certain that if a determined
effort is made by the combine to discriminate against new properties for the
purpose of restricting the output to conserve their selfish interests, the independent owners of new nr ines with Isrge ore
bodies will syndicate and hid for the
market of the wor|d in opposition to the
combine itself. The levelling process
will follow snd there will be a more just
and equitable eqoaalon of profile between
producers and consumers.
lt is the opinion of conservative students of the lesd market thst the lead
trust, with ita hundreds of millions of
watered stock on whicli it is compelled
to declare dividends to the bankruptcy o'
mining, will follow lhe road of the barb
wire trust and the other combines who
have so restricted the use of their mater
isls an to lorce themselves into bank
ruptcy (or want of customers. It must
not be forgotten Ihat people will only
buy lead products In such qualities ss
they can sfiord tp buy, and people who
h ive houses to pajnt will let them lado
out in the snn (ind ruin when the price
ol lesd exceeds tbe prollt ol their In tei-
| cats which contribute to its use.

The Arlington management states that
the *'$20,000 dividend," spoken of by

During the week supplies were sent
up to the L. H. mine, on Red Mountain,
and a force of men bave done to work to
moro fully develope that property. The
L. H. is Silverton's banner gold mine
and when that property is worked to its
full capacity our fame as a gold camp
will be established.
Work has been commenced on tlis>
repairing of the lower end ol the Galena
Farm road, nnder the foremnnship of
Henry Wilson.. This piece of road is
uied by the Hewitt mine and in anticipation of the heavy ore hauling that
will be passing over it within the next
few days the Government bas put this
'oree of men to work.

It la probably true that almost every
man has in him certain qualities which
would draw somo wouian to him, but it
is difficult to frame a statement in gon-

plnmeof Rnfford Pyko, has undertaken
in Tlie Cosmopolitan for July. "Tho

the man with whom she will ho happy,

Bradstreet's report of trade for last
week Is as follows:
The Industrial developments of the
week were largely favorable. There ls
a good tone in woolen goods and this is
reflected In firmer quotations for the
finer grades of raw material.
Boot and shoe shlpmencs were well

100,000 cases from eastern points for
the week, while the margin In favor
of this year's shipments continues to

active competition for goat-skins between domestic and foreign buyers.
Iron and steel show few notably new
features. The machinists' strike has
unquestionably hurt the foundry business, but this trouble appears to be
subsiding and the settlement of the tin
plate scale, an advance being conceded
to workingmen, leads to the expectation that other branches of the trade
will reach a like amicable settlement
with their employed. Advices from
British markets are that American
steel billets are being offered at very
low prices, which In view of the
strength of billets at home, may be

The news from St. Paul that J. J.

Manager Delbrldge has asked for bids
to sink the shaft an additional 100 feet.
Work should begin July 5.
The shaft on the Trade Dollar Is 160
feet deep. Superintendent Kells says
that there Is four feet of solid quartz
in the bottom. This has been about the
size of the ore body for the past 25
feet. The grade ls aliout the same as
in the San Poll and the Ben Hur. There
Is more gold and less silver per ton
than tn either of the former claims.
David Longley, who recently purchased the Oversight, on Belcher mountain, for $300 has a force of men working sinking a shaft through a mass of
highly mineralized decomposed quartz.
Frank Raborg, a mining expert, who
was at the claim a few days ago, says
that the quartz will avenge from $19
to $26 per ton, and that it Is Impossible
to pan without obtaining many coloi'3.
The Republic Mill company has
ceased hauling ore from the Lone Pine-
Surprise, and will take no more. It
has been town talk for a week that the
mill would shut down on the first of
July. It ls the general belief here that
the mill will close at once. Many men
have lieen discharged and are preparing to leave the camp, and many still
on the payroll expect to get their time
The ores of the Ben Hur mine have
been subjected to quite a thorough test
In the Republic mill. Three distinct
tests were made. One hundred and
ten tons were taken from one dump,
125 from another and 115 tons were
stoped from the mine expressly for the
test. George Miller, the superintendent, states that these tests have satis-
fled the officers of the company that the
Ben Hur will be a dividend payer very
shortly after the camp Is supplied with
abundant transportation facilities.

A strike that promises to be of con
slderable importance has been made in
the Buckhorn group on Flat creek, below Northport, Wash. At a depth of
110 feet In the tunnel the miners have
met nn 18-lnch pay streak of copper

over $100 to the ton. The ore was sent
to the Puget Sound reduction works,
and the amount received by the company after deducting the $10 for treatment was $117.83 to the ton. The ore
shipped was taken from the first prospect shaft, and not from the working
Bhaft. Thero are few mines that can
net $100 to the ton from the grass roots
and the company hopes to tie able to
ship a carload of the same character
In the near future to aid In the further

Plttsbv g, June 30.—A definite ord
pn a general strike of all union sheet  BoSi^Hiraari ,i„.|„,„ ,,,„,,„,  ,.,,,,.,,	
u,,,l workers has been Issued by
president T. J. 8haffer of the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and
jm Workera, Them are over 20,000
men affected by this order, and every
mlll operated by the American Sheet
gteel company where union men are
employed throughout the country will
c|0ge indefinitely or until such time
BS a settlement of the matters In dls-
puto has been reached. The officials
0t the American Sheet Steel company
refuse to discuss the troubles with
llielr workmen.
p. Smith, the manager of tho De-
yegg Wood plant of the company, and
Mr. Kline, who Ir alsd connected with
die company, acted as negotiators for
the combine. Mr. Smith Is said to have
been one of the most pronounced nonunion mill managers ln the country,
and from the time ho represented the
company in the present wage negotiations trouble was anticipated by thc
men. At the offices of the Amalga
niaicd association today It was said
that the sheet steel workers had de-
dded at the last convention of the
Amalgamated association to ask only
for the readoptlon of the present Bcale
for the present year. No changes
were wanted, but there would be one
demand, and that waB that the American Sheet'Btefcl company should sign
the Male so that It would cover all
of its plants.
In other words, the Amalgamated
assisiat Inn asked that non-union
plants now operated by the combine
should be turned over to tho union and
be governed bv the same rules as thp
union millB. Tho officials of the company decline to consider tills proposition.
This morning, at tho solicitation of
Manager Smith, for the American
Sheet Steel company, the wage committee of the Amalgamated assoeia
tinn met ln conference at the Hotel
Lincoln. At this final conference Mr.
Smith submitted an ultimatum to the
workman, which was ln effect that thc
mane scale for the plants of the com-
tiany would be signed without ques-
tier with the exception of the Old
Meadow mills in Scottdnle. the De-
pen Wood mill In McKeeaport, the
HVIlsville plant and all other plants
H"t now considered a part of the union
» ''kmen's piovince.
Hip workers' committee refused absolutely tr ciiiisiiii-i- the proposition,
and In 10 minute* the conference ad
Journad without formalities. As soon
as the conference was over Presi-
i! "nt Shnffor Issued an urgent call for
a meeting of the advisory board. The
board met ami approved tho decision
of the prealdenl to call out all men
of the unii n The strike order In
peneral will take men from the nonunion plants who belong to tho organisation, as well as the union mills.
The men explain their demand for thc
unionizing of all the mills of the combine by stating that last year the com
bine had taken advantage of Its position in having tho non-union mills
by operating them first and having
the other mills idle until preasure of
luislnegfi forced them to stnrt. It wns
resolved hv tho mon at that time that
Mich a Chance should never occur
again for the company; tbat it would
be either all union mills or nil non
union mills. .
It is generally agreed, however, that
the real test of strength between the
combine and the workers will not be
made until aft"r the warm weather.
Hurlng July and August there will
be no strike benefits paid the men out
of work, as these two months are used
by shoot mills', like all other iron
plants, for repairs. After September
1. If the scale Ib not signed, the Aninl-
!;amated association will be called on
for support of thc Idle men.

What S. S. S. Does
for Children
Children are constantly exposed to all sorts of diseases. The air they breathe is tilled witli germs, sewer
gas and dust from the filthy streets are inhaled into the
lungs antl taken into the blood. At the crowded school
rooms and other public places tliey come in contact
almost daily with others recovering from or in the first
stages of contagious diseases. You can't quarantine
against tlie balance of tlie world, and thc best you can
do is to keep their blood in good condition, and thus
prevent or at least mitigate the disease. You have
perhaps learned from observation or experience that
healthy, robust children (and this means, of course,
children whose blood is pure) are not nearly so liable to
contract diseases peculiar to them, and when they do it
is generally in a mild form. On the other hand, weak,
emaciated and sickly ones seem to catch every disease
that comes along, this is because their blood is lacking in nil the elements necessary to sustain and build
up the body. Poisons of every description accumulate
in the system, because the polluted and sluggish blood
is unable to perform its proper functions.
Such children need a blood purifier and tonic to give
Strength and vitality to their blood, andS. S. S., being a
purely vegetable remedy, makes it the safest and best for
Uie delicate constitutions of children. S. S. S. is not only
a perfect blood medicine, but is pre-eminently the tonic
for children; it increases their appetites and strengthens
the digestion and assimilation of food. If your children have any hereditary or acquired taint in their blood,
irive them S. 8. S. and write to our physicians for any
fnfonnation or advice wanted; this will cost you noth-
nir and will start the little weaklings on the road to

just issued, shows that 18,800,000 pounds
was expended for the relief of famine sufferers liming the year lK_.lt-liHHI.
The mortality from the plague for the
five years eliding March, lillll, was nearly
600,000. The census completed in March,
1001, s'aows thai (lie increase in population
during the past 1(1 years was only live to
six millions, instead of the normal 10,000,-
(HNI. The loss represents deaths iu consequence of the famine.
In Kngland a development as Intensely interesting as it was unexpected has occurred concerning the
challenger for the America's cup. This
is due to the action of Kenneth lfl.
Clark, owner of the cutter Karaid. Mr.
Clark has had three opportunities of
racing the Karaid against the Shamrock I., and he has witnessed all the
trials of the two Shamrocks since the
challenger was refitted. His observations have led him to doubt seriously
whether the Shamrock II. Is good
enough to send to American waters
In challenge for the cup. He has a
belief amounting to a conviction that
the Karaid is a better boat, length for
length, than the Shamrock II., and he
desires to see this question settled lie-
fore any yacht goes out as a challenger.

Rev. Enoch Hill, of Grand Junction, Iowa,   Indorses   Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for

No higher praise can he offered nor

the virtues of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People than the many
voluntary testimonials from ministers uf the gospel which have come
(nun all parts of the country. One
of these is from Rev. Enoch Hill,
pastor of the M. E church of Grand
Junction, Iowa, who says:
"I am a linn believer in the efficacy of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, the remedy having been
used in my family with highly gratifying results. For three or four years
I was a sufferer from general debility.
I seemed to be lacking in vitality,
was tired out must of the time and
sleep gave me no rest or refreshment.
I was troubled with headache much
of the time and my illness incapacitated me for energetic work in my
"A sister-in-lnw living in Nebraska,
who had suffered very much and who
had used Dr. William's Pink Pills
with good results, recommended
them to nie and I decided to try
them. I bud taken but two or three
doses of the pills when I found that
they were helping nie, and further
use of the remedy brought such relief
that I am glad to oner this public
recommendation of Dr. William's
Pink Pills for Pale People in the
interest of suffering humanity.
"My wife was troubled much as I
was und the pills also proved of great
benefit in bor case.
1 have recommended the pills to
niiuiy whom I have met in my work
and am always pleased to indorse the
medicine, tbo excellence of which
has been established within my own

Until the fool killer has harvested
the last of his crop there will always
be "flag incidents" for fool newspapers
to magnify.
When will the Canadian people
quit talking, chasing royal phantoms,
sticking extra feathers in their hats
and patting themselves on the back
and get down to business) Canadisns
have in thia broad Dominion tbe
making of one pf the most prosperous
snd powerful countries of the earth.
It has many rich natural resources
which only await the application of
the brain and hand of man to make
them of immense value and why are
theso resources, even in our older
provinces, lying idle to-day 1 Not
because the country is young, for it is
as old to the wbiteman as any of the
country to the south of ua Not
because the Oanadisn people lack
brains or enterprise, for have not the
sons of Canada in more than one
foreign land climbed the ladder of
fame to the topmost round. Then
what can be the reason of this st-tg--
natiou? This dry-rot that has spread
like a cancer, across the country from
ocean to ocean, If it is neither lack
of brains, enterprise or lack of natural
resources, what is it? Is it in
bowing to the pomp and formalities of
sovereignity in Europe thst we lqse
patrotism towards our own country!
Oan it be thst we have so much red-
tape, fuss snd feathers in the administration of our Government that we
bave no time to get down to a business
bans in the running of our own attaint
Or can it be that we aie so accustomed
to sitting down with folded hands and
calling for help from foreign capital
and enterprise to develope our resources
tbat we hare become like sheep without leaders) Must we alwsys ue
dependent upon that restless, pushing,
enterprising, braggart nation to our
south for our market, our capital and
the manufacturing of our raw products?
There is a reason for all those things
and the reason is something lacking
within ourselves. What is this reason?
Will not some Moses ariw and lead
this nation out of its commercial
bondage? Awake people of Oanadsl
Depend upon and place more dependence upon yourselves and with the
help of your broad prairies, immense
forests, mines and fisheries carve out
a place for your country amongst the
leading nations ot the earth.
I don't go much on religion,
I never ain't luid no hIiow ;

And true will snd that sort of thing,
But 1 believe in (.o I anil the angeltt, x
Ever since one uiglu last spring.
I came into town with some turnips,
And my little Uabe came bIoiik,
No lour-y ear-old in .the country
Could beat him ior prettv aud strong,
Peart, and chipper and sassy.
Always ready to swear aud fight—
And 1 lurnt him tu chaw terbacker
Just to keep his iuilk-tee(ti white.
The snow came down like a blanket
As I passed hy TnggHits store;
I went in ior a jug of molalities
And left the team at the door,
They scared at somethini; and started,
1 heard one little squall.
And hell-to-spllt over the prsirie
Went team Little Breeches and all.
Hell-to-split over the prsirie,
I was almost frooxe'wiih akeer;
But we rousted up some torchts
And searched ior them far and near.
At hint we iu ruck (sonars and waguti,
Snowed under a Muft while mo lid,
Upbot dead lieat, but oi little Oabe
No hide nor h iir waa lound.
And here all hope soured on me
Of my leiluw critler'a aid—
I jeat flopped down on my marrow-bone*
. Crouched deep iu the sin. a-, and prayed
By this the torches was p!uyrd out,
And me and Isrul Parr,
\Vei_| oil'foi some wood to a sheep-fold
That he said waa aoine wh are ihur.

Will the Red Mountain wagon road
be built? That it ia needed every
prospector, miner and businessman in
this district knows full well. It will
open np a large country in which years
of work and thousands of dollars have
been expended by claim owners and
which the lack of transportation
facilities has retarded the development
of to such an extent that at present
but few are working there. Red
Mountain with its mammoth ledges of
gold-copper ore is looked upon heie

its promise to build this rosd at once

God made the world aod all thst is
therein—except the mule. The mule is
the creation of man and whether be
improved on God's handiwork or not has
been a matter of grave dispute ever
since the creation of tlie lirst mule.
There is probably no domestic animal in
tl.e world, unless it be the mule's father
thst is subject to so much abuse, ol whom
bo much is expected and towards whom
so little consideration snd kindnens is
shown. No wonder Ihe disposition ol
the mule family is spoiled, why should
he not be tricky, stubborn snd mean
when the first thing he learns alter he
realizes thst he is a mule Ib that he has
nothing to expect in this world but
curses and kicks. Little wonder (hat
bis kicking instincts are highly developed and thst he returns curses by
sulkfness snd kicks wilh compound
Interest. Yet the mule has his redeeming quslities and no one will deny that
he is one of the most iiselnl of our domestic animals, if you can call an snimsl
domesticsted thst none but fools and
children will approach without a certain
amount of fear. If there is an extra
heavy piece of machinery t" be transported up to one of our mines, who getc
the job but s poor patient mule; when a
hesvy heart-breaking pull hss to he
made the horse ia taken out of Ibe harness and with blows and curse* the job
is given to the male. There ore places
on this earth where man could hardly
subsist but for the mule. Nothing csn
take his place on Ihe sweltering plains
Texas, the malarial districts of the south
or on the rocky passes of the higher
mountains. The mule has won cam-
paigns In the Phillipineaand of what use
would onr brave 240,000 soldiers in
South Africa be without the mule. When
the Boers are conquered the mules
should not be overlooked when giving
out the prines. Men hjtve.been railed
mules for hanging a jury and letting
their cpnscience and sense of just fee
