Couldn't Be Beat.
During the early days of the Queen
Bess mine an incident occurred
nronud the cook-house that i* worth
giving. An epidemic had broken out
among the men and as nsual an "esuert"
examination was made by one of the
several OM Country managers for the
canse. This individual inspected the
sanitation of the camp through a theodolite antl made a am v. y ol the kitchen
lur microbes. The last place to be examined was tho vegetable cellar and
this had to be done on hands and knees.
Here, it was thought, the trouble was
located. A shout from the darkness
announced that the fotatoes were not
good. Following the shout the inouocled
and dust-begrimed inspettor emerged
from the cellar holding: something in his
hund concealed behind his back. The
cook was summoned and lectured on the
dangers of cooking unlit potatoes for the
men, and with a dramatic flourish the
hidden object was produced. "Now
tlieali, do you call that a good powtato?
"No," said the cook, "I would call that
a beet."    And go it was.
Objects to the Tax.
Alister Thompson, of Kamloops, sends
us a somewhat lengthy communication
regarding the proposed increase in the
Revenue Tax from $3. to |5. Mr,Thompson appeals to the workingmen of the
Province, upnn whom the great bulk of
the tax would fall, to watch the vote tak
en on the matter and if tbe increase is
defeated in the House, to remember the
members wbo voted against it as worthy
of support; if cairied, us seems likely, to
call mass meetings and demand the repeal of the measure from every constituency. Our correspondent favors a revenue raised by a three to flve per cent
tax upon the selling value of land, including mineral, with periodic valuation, as
is done in New Zealand, "the most prosperous country in all the earth."
Mr. Thompson has reason for his appeal, hut his style of writing is too bombastic to do any good by reproducing it.
Moderation will often succeed where
rhetorical fireworks are useless.

One of these is used for manwsy and

for hoisting—one cage or skip is lowered

Thc explosion took place when many of
the employes of the laundry had gone to
ItCllc, a time register found in the ruins
showing that 86 had already reported for
duty, while two or three others were
known to have just entered the building.
The force of the explosion was so terrific
that buildings for blocks around were
shaken as if by an earthquake, and hundreds of windows were shuttered.
The building in which the explosion occurred -was known as the old Wavtr'y
theater and was built in 1877. Subsequently it was remodeled and the rear used
hy the Diireniiis laundry.
Production of Precious Stones.
Washington, March 12.—The report of
the United States geological survey on the
production of precious stones, as prepared
by George F. Kuntz, special agent in
charge of the investigation for the division
of mining and mineral resources, shows
that the total value of the output of precious stones in the United States for 1900
is $232,210, as compared with $1H5,770 in
1809, a gain of W0.440, or 25 per cent.
The stones of greatest value produced in
the United States were turquoise, $82,000;
sapphires, $75,000; rhodolite, $20,000;
beryl, $11,000; quartz crystal, $10,000,
while the value of diamonds produced in
the United States in the year under review- was only $1S0.
Afraid of Leniency.
New York, March 12.—The London correspondent of the Tribune sayu with regard
to the reported negotiations lietwecn Lord
Kitchener and General Ilotha that fears ure
■being expressed lest thc Hritish should bc
too easy. Already from Cape Colony
comes a strong plea that the British ministry should refuse to grant anything
which could lie considered terms by the
Boers. In Great Britain opinions are di-
dived on the question, but undoubtedly the
general view is thut the imperial government must not embarrass itself with
pledges as to the future organization of the
conquered territory.

John A. Finch and A. B. Campbell
have gone to New York. The presence
there of Charles Sweeny and Thomus
Greenough substantiates the report
that an Important conference of lead
producers has been called.
A tunnel to cut the Tonderfoot &
Trail ledge was run 08 feet.
The development work on the Oversight for February was 98 feet.
The Flag Hill is in 172 feet from tho
tunnel. This drift was advanced 55
The shaft on tho Quilp mine was
sunk 100 feet ln February and a large
station was cut at the 300 foot level.
The Mountain Lion sank a two-compartment shaft 62 feet during the
month. No other work was dyne on
the mine.
The Butte & Boston raised 40 feet
nnd drifted 30 feet last month. The
Chlco extended Its north drift on the
285 foot level only 50 feet.
Fifty-five feet of shaft were sunk on
the California mine last month and
during the same time 35 feet of raise
were made and 25 feet of drift run.
The Princess Maud's development
for the month was confined to running
drifts from the shaft nt the 300 foot
level.   These were extended 45 feet.
Eight Inches of ore In the uprise on
tne Morning Glory was sampled recently, and the assay gave $1400 per ton.
The raise Is up 38 feet from the second
One hundred tons of Ben Hur ore
will be run through the Republic mill
as a test. If the results are encouraging a contract wll be entered Into by
the mine owners for further treatment
of Its ores.
February was not only a short
month in days, but lt was decidedly
short ln the amount of development
work on the mines. There has been
a decided falling off for several months
past, but It has no doubt reached its
lowest point.
There ls practically no new work
being done In the camp and it is not
probable that there will be much until
the outlook ls brighter to handle the
ore. The Republic Is still ln the lead
ln the way of development and is the
only mine ln the camp tn which stoping Is going on to any considerable
extent The total amount of development work during the month on tho
mino was about 170 feet.
The bridge that is In course of construction across Granite creek at the
Republic sampling works, will consiini
a little over 100,000 feet of lumber and
several thousand feet of round timbers. The weather ls a mixture of
spring and winter. The breakup Is
coming slowly, which will be beneficial In keeping the roads ln a passable
condition. Continued warm weuther
would cause many washouts and cut
the camp off for a time from the outside world.
The large mines that have been doing a large proportion of the work,
with few exceptions, are now idle.
These Include the Tom Thumb, Black
Tall, San Poll and Lone Pine-Surprise.
Upon these not a particle of work Is
being done, nor is there any Immediate prospect of resumption. The matter must remain as at present for some
imft of the first two weeks' run. An
average ot 300 tons of Mother Lode ore
is being treated daily. Additional rail-
way facilities are to be had by putting
ln a new spur for use in shipping
At Rossland the ore shipping record
was smashed last week, the mines Bending out 8591 tons. The largest previous
Shipment from here ln a week was 7814
tons, and so the present week beats the
record by 777 tons. The shipments
wore made by the following mines:
Le Roi, 4331 tone; Center Star, 2200;
War Eagle, 096; Le Roi No. 2, 750;
Iron Mask, 55; Rossland-Great Western, 536; I. X. L., 23.
made by which some of the ores from
those mines can be treated by the Republic mill. This matter will no doubt
be settled soon.
A deal Involving one of the best
groups at the head of Ten Mile creek
has just been signed up.
No time Is being lost ln getting
things in shape for the new mill at the
Enterprise. A slelghroad has been
completed to the millBlte from Aylwin
and timber ls being rushed up. The
sawmill Is cutting 12,000 feet a day.
P. McVIcar has taken up the lease
on the Bondholder, recently relinquished by Paul Hauck and partners. Four
men are at work.
L. M. Rice, C. E. of Seattle, has arrived In Greenwood to take charge of
construction on the Greenwood-Phoenix tramway. Preliminary surveys
will be undertaken at once and before
the end of the month the actual work
of building will be commenced.
What little work has been done on
the Iron Horse, Ten Mile, of late has
shown the ledge to be widening out.
It Is now two feet across. A good feature about the ore is that the zinc Is
disappearing, leaving a live and
healthy galena with unimpaired Values.
At Slocan Manager Dunbar of the
Phoenix Is one of the happiest men tn
tbe camp as his property Ib turning
out one of the big things ln the division. He has ore showing ln abundance
and the dumps are piled high with It.
In the No. 1 drift, which Is In 150 feet,
there Is 2% feet of ore exposed, giving
ovor $100 to the ten.
At Ymlr the returns from the
Ymlr mine for the last month were:
Eighty stamps ran 611 hours, during
which 4,900 tons of ore were milled,
producing 447 tons of concentrates.
The total receipts for the month from
bullion, etc., were $41,600: total operating expenses chargeable to revenue,
$15,400, leaving a net profit for the
months' work of $26,200.

Wash., Is going on rapidly under Superintendent F. W. Morris. More machinery is en route to thia property.
Work on the Copper King mine near
Colville is beiug rapidly pushed ahead.
The greater the depth attained the
wider the oreshoot and tho better the
quality of the ore, which runs as hifjli
as 80 per cent copper.
The Deer Trail Consolidated company, operating the Elephant claim, In
Cedar Canyon, Wash., expects to make
a considerable output of ore this
month if the roads permit. Six carloads went out In February despite bad
roads and a considerable profit is reported to have been netted to the company.
Preparations are In progress to put
a force of men on the Little Giant and
continue development with the utmost
activity during the entire year. The
Little Giant ls one of the richest copper-gold properties ln the Pierre Lake
district, Wash., and lt ts tn shape to
make a steady output with a few Improvements.

possession of the big plant.
A strike of the greatest Importance
has just been made on the Keep Cool,
on Lake Pend d'Orellle, Idaho. At
least nine feet of ore Identical with
that In the No. 4 level la reported In
the face of the drift on the No. 5 or
lowest level. This Is tbe big payshoot
for which driving bus been In progress for some time, and the showing
• assures Its permanence and the existence of nn Immense body of pay ore.
A report has just reached Lewiston.
Idaho, from the Crook's Corral district on Salmon river that an enormously rich strike has been made on
the Corson k Thompson property.
They have heen developing a group of
claims with a tunnel, expecting to cut
the ledge nt a depth of about 100 feet.
The report Is that the ledge was struck
at a distance of 45 feet, but with a vertical depth of nearly 100 feet The
ledge haB lieen crosscut for more thnn
20 feet, and the hanging wall has not
yet been reached. Assays of the ledge
matter for the full 20 feet average
about $20 In gold, nnd from 15 to 20
per' cent copper. The claim Is less
than two miles from Finch k Campbell's Blue Jacket, and tt ls thought
that tbey are extensions of the same
ledge. There ls a report current at
Orangevllle that William Springer has
secured an option on the property for
20 days for Finch k Campbell.

Catarrh has become snch a common
disease that a person entirely free from
thia disgusting complaint is seldom met
witli. It is customary to spenk of Cutarrh
aa nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple iiinutiinintion of tbe nose and
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease; if not at first, it
very soon Incomes so.
The blood is quickly contaminated by
the foul secretions, and the jxiison through
tbe general circulation is carried to all
parts of the system.

and eliminates from the system all catarrhal secretions, and thus cures thoroughly

—A swin 11 Statement.
A recent cure that seems almost a
miracle was that of Samuel Curnock,
of 62 Twenty-second avenue, Melrose
Park, 111. The story Ib best told ln
his own words.    He snys:
"Early ln 1898 I began to experience a worn-out feeling and noticed
that l became tired after very slight
exertion. I continued at my work ln
the iniu-hliii' shop until July 2, 1898,
when I suffeied from a fall, and after
thnt time grew rapidly worse. A physician wus called and pronounced my
trouble locomotor ataxia. He treated
me for four months and there was no
Improvement ln my condition. I was
tald thnt my case wns Incurable, and
that I would continue to grow worse
until dei'th relieved me. I was not
confined to my bed, although I Bpent
much of my time lying down, and
was entirely unable to work. I could
hardly stand; it seemed as If my legs
would give out from under me, and
my movements were like thoBe of a
drunken man. A cold numbness came
In my right side, and I lost the
strength of my right arm. Then my
eyes began to blur so that I could see
nothing distinctly, and In a short
time I became totally blind ln my
right eye.
"Last December I began taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
and within a month I was so much
Improved that I determined to persist
In the treatment. At the end of the
second month I was able to return to
my work and have not lost a day on
account of Illness since that time.
Since I began taking the pills I have
gained 30 pounds In weight, cnn walk
almost as well as ever, and my sight
Is fully restored. I firmly believe that
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People saved my life and enabled me to
again earn my livelihood.

ANDERSON, of Virginia, Is at present in Washington, LX C, as Corresponding Secretary of the Higher Educational League ot that city.'
Cured of la grippe by Peruna.
Corresponding Secretary of tbe
Hipher Educational I. ague,
writes from the"Astoria,"WaBh-
inirton, D. C, Ihe following:
"About two months ago I was
taken very ill with la grippe and
was obliged to go to bed. I took
three bottles of Peruna with very
beneficial results, and was able
to leave my bed In a week and regained my usual strength very
"I have nothing but praise for
Peruna, and recommend it to
those similarly afflicted whenever I can. "—Frances M. Anderson.
La grippe is, strictly speaking, epidemic catarrh—that is to say, a variety of acute catarrh which is so contagious and runs a course more or less
definite, the same as scarlet fever,
whooping cough, etc.
During the acute stages of la grippe
lt is not a very fatal disease, but the
condition in which it leaves the system has caused the death of a countless number.
Indeed, nearly every person who has
had la grippe within the last three
years finds himself more or less deranged by the pernicious effecta of
this disease. The majority of those
who have escaped death find life
scarcely worth living.
If this vast multitude of people
could only know with what certainty
and promptness Peruna would relieve
them of all the bad effects which la
grippe has brought upon them, what
an untold amount of suffering would
be averted!
Thousands have already heard how
quickly this remedy will euro in these
cases and have been saved; but tens
of thousands have not yet heard, and
continue to suffer on, dropping Into
the grave one by one.
Peruna cures catarrh ln all stages
and varieties, whether acute or chronic, and ls therefore the most effective
remedy ever devised for removing all
the derangements which follow la
Samuel M. York writes from Union
Grove, Ala., the f li jwlng letter:
"Dear Sir: Last week I was taken
with la grippe and catarrhal deafness. I wrote you for advice and followed your directions. After taking
two bottles of Peruna I found myself'
well of la grippe, and my hearing was
fully restored. My health is better
than it has been in five years.
"My wife improved tn health very
much after taking Peruna."—Samuel
M. York.
Miss Caroline J. Kahl, Otlsco, Ind.,
writes as follows:
"Three years I had la grippe
and pulmonary trouble. I was
very sick. I had hemorrhages of
the lungs nearly every day for a
year, and three bottles of your
Peruna cured me. The doctor
said I had consumption. I am
now in better health than I have
been for many years.
"I highly recommend Peruna to all
my neighbors and friends. Peruna ls
my favorite medicine. I shall always
have Peruna ln the house."—Miss
Caroline J. Kahl.
If you do not derive prompt and
satisfactory results from the use of
Peruna, write at once to Dr. Hartman,
giving a full statement of your case,
and he will be pleased to give you his
valuable advice gratis.

Far beyond the Western ocean,
Girt around with walls of foam;
Stands an isle, bedecked with em'rnlds,
That all Irishmen call home.
And as absence lends enchantment,
To loved scenes bo far away,
Passing years but make it dearer
Each succeeding "Patrick's day."
Other lands may boast of power,
Wealth achieved and viet'ries won;
Freedom, glory, pomp and dower,
May attend a regal throne;
But our land so famed in story —
Far more famed than tongue can say—
Still we hail with low. and rapture,
Each succeeding "Patrick's day."
Like the ivy clinging fondly
To the round towers of our land,
We still cling to hope for freedom.
While we join both heart and hand;
Going forth as did St. Patrick,
Braving pagan king und thrall,
Taking cross and shamrock with us;
Armoured thus wo cannot tall.
As our ancestors so nobly
Left tho Druid's mistletoe.
And raised up the three-leaved emblem
Patrick's loving faith to show,
So may we, Hibernian children,
Take up our new country's cause,
Proving that when duty calls us,
We are loyal to all her laws.
Tho' we love our emerald island
And revere 8t. Patrick's name,
In our hearU there lurks a comer
For the Maple banner's fame.
Soft and sweet as echoes  playing
Round some fairy haunted stream,
May bright angels guard our island,

Clusters close—a beauteous spray—
So in friendship, love and justice,"
We'll stand close on "Patrick's day"

The Mineral Act has reoeived more
tinkering with than any other Act on
the statute books of British Columbia,
and as the metalliferous mining
industry of the province is in anything
but a prosperous condition, in spite of
statistics to the contrary, and as this
state of Affairs has been brought about
by the hesitation of capitalists to
invest in a section where the laws are
in an unsettled state and subject to
radical changes at any time, the less
monkeying with the Mineral Act the
better. At Ihe present session of the
legislature an amendment to the Act
has been introduced, that will no doubt
become a law, in regard to the amount
of work required to be done by a
lorator before he is entitled to put his
claim on record. This amendment at
least is one in the right direction and
will have a tendency to encourage
legitimate prospectors and shut out
that class of professional stakers who
are a detriment to and retard the der-
elopment of any camp. Tho amendment is a good one but it is to be
hoped that this one change in the
mining law will eutriie our law mokers

there will be no more changes for

Tho refusal of tho Cumberland reli

relief fund for the relief of any of the
Chinese or Japanese sufferers through
the late explosion shows bad taste
and a callousness towards their fellow
man that U brutal in the extreme. In
a case of this kind where a whole
community is effected and white and
yellow people are equal sufferers, to
draw the color line is an act of barbarism. If these yellow mon were
good enough to work with, the men
who worked with them should ut least

The motion before the House at
Victoria, if acted upon, for the government to build and operate smelters
in the Province is a step towards the
government ownership of public
utilities which is feasable and of as
much importance to the puhlh as the
government ownership of railroads.
Wo fail to remark however the arousing of any enthusiasm among the
government ownership advocates! Is
this matter too large or too small to
receive their attention.
