In response to (he representations
made by the delegates who recently vis-
iled Ottawa from the Kootenays, Finance
Minister Fielding laat week iuttoduced a
measure in tlm Commons providing for
the payment of $5 a ton ns a bounty on
lead mined, smelted ond teflnod in Canada, ap to $100,00') Ior cadi year but
dec-teasing in amount per'ton each year,
This bounty will lie payable lo tbe refineries alter July 1st 1002.
The effect of this encouragement upon
lead mining will be felt immediately and
will put new life into what waa a moribund industry. The bounty is pavable
upon 20,000 tons of refioed lead the first
year, which ia more thau has yet been
produced in any one year, and will be
sufficient ioduceinent for capitalists to go
into the refining business.
Too much credit Ior thia action cinnot
be given to those who have long agitated
Ior pome such move by lhe government,
foie.raost among whom is Q. O. Bueli-
tiii.ui, of Kaslo. who for years I.as been
fighting for the hatternient of tho lead

The Victoria Day Celebration was a
t-uccuss. The Min was on shift all day j
the attendance was largely in excess of
all expectation ; the games were all hotly
contested, and no hitches cume in to
spoil any of tbe Caledonian sports. The
regrettable iealure of the duy was the
crowding out of the footl.all finals, owing
to the overtime necessary for the New
I i.-nver-Siindoii game aud the drawn out
arguments in tbe baseball match.
The early boat from Slocan, bringing
two football teams and the band, pulled
in on time and was greeted with a fusilade from the masked dynamite battery
on shore.
While awaiting the return of the boat
Hip Slocan Band paraded Lake Avenue
and then marched to Ihe dock, followed
by the Slocan and Silvertou football
players in full regalia. On the bunt was
a large crowd of pleasure seekers, Sandon, Three Forks and New Denver Bending down larite delegations, each having
lepreeeiitaiives in the snorts.

The first e.wnt to be pulled off was the
football game between the home team
and the red, white and blue boys from
Slocan. The Silverton players were look-
ing forward for « hard garna ai the Slo-
canites were looked upon as likely winners of the inetl.tls. r. it familiarity with
the ground and a much superior combination cave the home learn the best of
the play Irom start to finish and each
half gave them two goals and g ive the
visitors goose-eggs. Johnny Barclay did
the neeeasary in ibe first half and Lin-
loo and Matheson kicked the other two
goals. C. D. McRao refereed the game
und bia prompt decisions were never
once questioned.
At noon a game was played hetwten
the juniors of Now Denver and Slocan,
the players ranging in size from thirty
inches to six feet. In tbis game Slocan
won by 2 goals to 1.
A Rat G_.ro*.
The hot game of the day was played
lietween New Denver and Sandon, both
teams playing for blood. During the
first half the play was of the ragged var- |
tety. both learns letting slip good oppor-
tuiitii-s for scoring, At half time the
score stood 0—0. Shortly after play was
renewed the New Djnver goal lender let
au easy one pass him and then New Denver doubled th • puce and rushed a score.
All players then dropped football and
went in for a rough and tun ble sciim-
lunge, both teams being called down repeatedly by Referee Ilowson for rough
plays, back checks and wrestling. Scoie
at full time 1—1. At this noint some of
the J»r.w Denverites wished to toss for
the game, but it was decided to play on.
Twenty minutes more p.ay and lhe tie
was unbroken. Then New Ileuver con-
ceeded the game to Sandon.
According to pr.igiani tho Silverton
and Sandon teams should have concluded the tournament, but alter the base-
halt game only thirty iuinn.es lemained
Iiefore bout time, the Sandon -players
could not remain over and the bout could
not lie held, bo the game was off.    What

The baseball mutch between the New
Denver and Silverton nines began with
ii wrangle, the visitors claiming that the
acorecurd showed lour "ringers" on Ibe
Silverton team. These were: Linton,
who bad already plated twice against
New Denver this year; Petiie, un old-
time resident of Three Forks; Jackson,
who has lived here three years, and an
Ku ily Edith miner, Friedlcb.
After wasting valuable time the game
was called, Silverton going to bat, Covington knocked out an easy one and died
at lirst. McNaught singled and stole
■ i fond nnd third, coming in on Bowes'
grounder to first. Bowes and Moran bad
a race for first, Moran winning by a nose.
Jackson made the third man out. New
Denver scored twice in their turn, De
Veber and Nesbitt crossing the plate,
while Moran, Tucker and Taylor went
out. Silvorton scored again in the second and it was one, two, three for the
visitors. So fur the play was snappy ana
the score even, hut in tho third Silverion
swatted the ball all over the townsite and
tl shed up nine mos, their lead holding
through the game. *t the end of the
eivli* the score was 25 to 14,and the visitors quit. A. 8proat, New Denver, umpired the game and gave some inexplicable decisions. He was not at all partial in his favors but handed out bis views
cheerfully in spite of the players and

Not Convenient To Die.
J. R. Sovereign, who has just resumed
charge of the Idaho State Tiibune, the
mouthpiece of Ihe Miners' Unions of the
Coeur d'Elenes, appeals to the "deputy-
hbetiffs" as follows:
"We implore the private deputy sheriff! not to kill us until after conditions
become more propitious. We have a
loving wifo and family down In Arkansas
two thousand miles awav. Naturally our
body w mid lie transported to oar Ozark
home in the sunny south and the weather
has a'ready become so warm that onr
remains would not make an agreeable
contribution to inter-state commerce and
you know that embalming costs a great
deal of money and would exceed our
resources. Besides dead editors are not
permitted to travel on editorial passes.
Thev usually burn the crown sheet, clinker the grate and cause a great many
but boxes and railroads have fonnd dead
editors an unprofitable element in passenger traffic. Please wnit until we sell
our southern home and remove our family to Wallace so thst all unnecessary
expense, delay and inconvenience may
he avoided. There are certainly enough
local residents to satisfy the most tastid-
ious deputy. To say the least we wonli!
like to be reserved for some public oc-
i-n-io-. for then sympathising friends
wonld be more inclined to pay back subscriptions than they would if deprived of
the pleasure of the entertainment."
I'ta Don't Repeat It
Although not down on the program
the swiftest game ol ball was played in
tbe wee sunt' hours of this morning. No
grand stand plays were made as the
audience wus com posed mostly of a few
lired ones trying to snatch a little sleep
after their labors of yesterday- The
batters were batty, the pitcher groggy,
and the catcher punk, and the umpire's
decisions so rank Ihat the game broke up
in a row much to the relief of the weary
ones wbo turned over in bed and prayed
that the whole aggregation of base ball
enthusiasts would wander down to the
doea aud fall into the lake.
On Monday Ibe Hewett mire sent out
a 25 ton car of ore to the Nelson smelter.
This ia the last of the ore brought down
the hill Iiefore the raw-hiding broke up

sacked up at the mine awaiting transportation.

Mining Notea and Pereounle.
The Butte copper mines In Montana
are known wherever the red metal ls
used. The production of tl^ese mines
ls so enormous that their output comprises 61 per cent of the entire copper
production of the United States and
nearly one-third of the copper output
of the world. The value of the production of the Butte mines amounts to
over $50,000,000 annually. Copper ts
perhaps the most widely diffused metal
found in Montana.
Professor Samuel Aughey, the mineral expert, will visit the Hawkeye
soon to make a thorough Investigation
of the property.
Work has been suspended on the
Quilp, as Manager Tate says that more
than the 400 tons called for In the contract has been delivered at the mill, or
ls broken in the mine.
Preparations are actively In progress
for sluicing the new placer fields. A
company Is putting In a set of sluices
about two miles above the discovery,
but no sluicing will be done before the
first of next week.
Returns have been received from the
shipment of El Caliph ore sent to
Grand Porks. The total shipment was
11 tons. Seven and one-half tons of
first class ore averaged $150.93. Three
and one-half tons of second class ore
averaged $97.70 per ton.
J. D. Houston, who has been working
the property of the Aeneas Valley Mining Company, about 10 miles southwest
of Republic, has brought to town about
50 pounds of fine ore, carrying pyrites
and copper glance. The 22 foot shaft
shows a five foot ledge, of which about
half ls solid ore.
It Is authoritatively stated that construction work on the Grand Forks &
Republic railway will be commenced
within five days.
The work of boring for coal oil on
the ranch of Joseph Ward, three miles
from Grand Forks, will be commenced
within two weeks.
VV. M. Desmond of Cleveland, Ohio,
has secured a controlling interest in
tbe Rambler In Pass Creek camp, north
of Eholt. The Rambler has a line surface showing.
At Sandon the Rambler-Cariboo never looked better than it does at <tbe
present time. The No. 2 tunnel, which
Is being driven ahead, has been pushed
for a distance of 1000 feet.
Ore ls being quarried on the surface
of the Crown Silver and Sunset, Dead-
wood camp. The contract for sinking
the main double compartment shaft on
the Sunset to the 400 foot level has
been completed.
The directors of the Brittania Cop
per syndicate have decided not to
accept the modified offer of $900,000
in cash and stock which was made for
their property, consisting of seven
claims, on Howe sound, about 28 miles
from Vancouver, by Bewick & More-
lng of London.
The official estimate of the last run
of the mill at the Ymir mine ls given
In the following cable sent to the bead
office In London: "During last month
80 stamps ran 29 days 18 hours. The
estimated profit on operating is $27,500.
Everything continues satisfactory."
Work has been resumed on the Commodore group, which lies near the Ymir
mino on Wild Horso creek.
Mines of Rossland camp last week
established a banner record, beating
all previous shipments by sending to
the smelters 12,043 tons. The mines
that made up this total were Le Roi,
624 tons; Centre Star, 1980 tons; War
Eagle, 870 tons; Le Roi No. 2, 2128
tons; Rossland Great Western, 810
tons; Iron Mask, 20 tons. The total
shipments for the year aggregate
162,900 tons.
Men are at work un watering the
Maple Leaf, one of a group of claims in
Summit camp. The property Is equipped with a compressor, hoist, etc. Development on an extensive scale Is to
be prosecuted vigorously. The crosscut on the second level of the R. Bell
ln the same camp Is In over 100 feet
from the shaft, and Manager Jack
Hanly believes that the ore body will
,  be struck within the next 50 feet.
At the Winnipeg mine, near Greenwood, the 'principal work ls being carried on at a depth of 400 feet on the
second north vein. This vein was followed down from the 300 foot level by
a winze, which was in ore for 73 feet.
Now a drift from the bottom of the
winze has been run east 30 odd feet, all
ln ore. A trial shipment of two carloads of ore taken from these workings
was sent out to the Granby smelter recently. If this shipment proves satisfactory It Is quite probable that the
mine will continue sending out ore
from time lo time.
The dominion government has decided to give a bonus of $5 per ton on
lead refined In Canada from Canadian
lead ore. There is a proviso that the
bonus shall not amount to more than
$100,000 per year. It will be available

The American Refining & Smelting
Company has filed a certificate with
the secretary of state of Colorado, increasing its capital stock from $65,-
000,000 to $100,000,000. The fee for
filing the papers was $10,000.
Vice Chancellor Pitney, in court in
Jersey City, has announced that he will
dissolve the temporary Injunction
against the carrying out of the purchase of the Boston & Montana and
other companies by the Amalgamated
Copper Company.
Word from Grangevlllc Is to the effect that Finch & Campbell have reduced the force on tbe Blue Jacket
mine on Salmon river because of unsatisfactory results that have followed
explorations below the seco'nd level. A
small force of men Is still working under the superintendency of F. E.
There is $3,000,000 worth of ore
above the 100 foot level in the Kendall
group, and In three months the mine
should begin paying dividends at the
rate of $35,000 a month. Such Is the
announcement made by H. T. Kendall,
of Lewistown, Mont., who has just sold
the group of four claims to Finch &
Campbell of Spokane.
During a period of 19 years, or from
1882 to 1900, the mines of the Butte
camp have produced in gold, silver and
copper a total of $544,102,164. This
enormous value has practically originated in Butte, the greater portion of
the production having been restricted
to a small area, not exceeding two
square miles in extent.
Arrangements for building the proposed smelter*at Weiser, Idaho, by
Lewis Hall, president of the Pacific &
Idaho Northern railway, have been
completed. The site chosen is at the
mouth of the Weiser canyon about
eight miles from town. The plant will
handle ores from the Seven Devils and
will draw supplies from Baker City,
Sumpter, Mineral and other points.
There Is much excitement at Silver
City. Idaho, over a discovery of rich
gold ore In what is called the Billion
claim, only half a mile from the post-
office. Rich float has been found on the
hill for years, and much prospecting
has been done for the ledge. This now
seems to have been found. It shows
a stream of ore eight inches thick, that
is fabulously rich.
There Is a common remark among
certain class of mine owners that they
are perfectly Indifferent to eastern capital. This seems too idiotic for comment. The more capital and men we
get interested In our mines the better
It is for the west. The only trouble is
that eastern investors are not buying
mining interests with as much enthusiasm as we would like them.
Today Cripple Creek, Colo., stands
foremost among the gold-producing districts of the world. It is hut six miles
square, but In that limited area are to
be found the deep shafts and the richest mines of gold. In 1891, following
Its discovery, the camp produced but
$300,000. The output this year will
exceed $25,000,000. The total output

New York.—Bradstreet's Report for
last, week la as follows:
Aside from a quite perceptible Increase of the spirit of unrest, in labor
circles there are few new changes to
record In the general trade or industrial situation. Business al present the
country over is of a seasonable reoruer
character with wholesalers in dry
goods, clothing and similar lines, but
the volume of business is fair for tbe
season and collections are rapid likewise. The basic facts underlying the
situation continue largely of a favorable character. Notable in thle respect
is tbe crop situation, particularly for
the cereals, which is ln a high degree
promising. The backward spring and
lack of raiiis ln some sections has militated against the growth of cotton, but
improvement is noted even ln this respect. The industries are active. Iron
and steel are strong but quiet as regards new demund for the new cruiser
forms, but the finished products have
been heavily ordered and the mills
havo sufficient business to keep them
busy from one to three monthB, while
a large additional business is reported
tn sight.
Foreign trade continues largely to
favor this country and the demand for
wheat to replace possible smaller yields
ln European countries has swelled the
volume of export trade, which might
otherwise have fallen off from April a
year ago because of smaller shipments
of cotton and of manufactured goods.
Despite the talk of rate cutting and
of expectations of a smaller movement
oi goous as tne spring aiivauces, i-dti-1
way earnings continue exceptionally
favorable, some great systems reporting maximum weekly earnings. Probably the best reports as to the new demand come from the leather and allied
trades, while the poorest as heretofore
are received from the textile industries.

T.-i-rllile experience.        — ..
The steamer Empress of India,
which recently arrived at Victoria, B.
C, brought a terrible tale of shipwreck and cannibalism which was recounted to the naVal court at Singapore by Johansen, a Swede, and Mar-
taranna, a Spaniard, sole survivors
of 19 men who sailed from Cavite on
the bark Angola, October 12. They
were cast ashore from their raft on
Soubl Island, of South Natuna group,
after 42 days of horror, and taken on
board a junk two days later, which
landed them at Singapore on April 13.
The Angola was wrecked on a coral
reef when six days out from Manila,
and went to pieces soon after she
struck. The boats were smashed and
the crew made two rafts out of the
wreckage. They had been 22 days at
sea when one man died, and then
one by one the other sailors died and
their bodies were thrown to the sharks
which followed.
A Frenchman went mad and attacked the captain with an ax, and as
the mate went to the captain's assistance he wielded his ax, killing him,
ate his brains and tlarnk his blood.
Others killed the Frenchman and ate
part of his body. Then one by one
the survivors died, until but two were
left, who subsisted on Bmall fish taken
with hooked nails and lines made of
pieces of canvas.
They drifted until after 42 days of
terrible suffering they were washed
on the Island of Soubl, on November
24. By that time they were so weak
that they could not walk, but had to
crawl on their hands and knees
Their bodies were covered with boils
There were about 200 natives on the
Island. The men went up to thc
chief's house and lived there for
about two months. They had only
eocoanuts, mango and little fish to
After living there about two months
a Chinese junk arrived from Singa
pore with a cargo of rice and the sur
vivors went on board her. They
stopped on the junk for two months
and then went on her to Pula-Madl
and thence to Singapore.

a canker sore into the flesh.
This horrilile disease appears first in tlie form of a little sore or blister; soon
Hie glands begin to swell, pimples break out on tlie body, the mouth and throat
lieciiinu sore, making it painful to cat or swallow; dreadful ulcers appear on the
Iqpgue, copper colored splotches and other characteristic signs of Blood Poison
enme as the disease progresses, aud the destructive *irus takes deepertold upon the
system. The medical men are ns sorely perple»ed'«ver the character of this blood

latter basis the new method is moro
scientific than the old one, capable ol a
clearer understanding and on the whole
no more unfavorable to the miners. It
is trui! that the smelters iu good practice
save more thau .90 per cent ol the lead,
just us in the case ol silver and Rold
tliey save more than 85 per cent, of
those metals, but the differenoa is a
margin which the smelter may fairly
allow himself, and tlie freiiiht rule ou
lead from the west to New Yoik is a
nood deal mora than 12.5 rents per 100
lbs. As to lhe Smelting Company itself
making the price oi leatl upon which
settlements aro based, it may be
remarked that it is precisely what has
been done during the last two years and
io the great   advantage   of  the miners.

Some very misleading articles nnd
statement's have been Appearing iu the
local press of British Columbia in regard
to tlio schedule of smelter rules charged
by the smeller trust, according to their
new circular. In giving the new rates
on smelting some of our exchanges,
eitlier through ignorance or carelessness,
liuve nesilected to put in liml little woid
"net" which makes a difference to the
miner of a good many dollars per ton.
The Engiueering ami Mining Journal,
whiih i.s one of tlie best authorities on
mining und smelling subjects, explains
the new rates as   follows:
The Smelting company agrees to pay
for the silver contents of ores '.15 per
cent, of the value at New York us quoted
by lhe Western Union Telegraph Company on the date cl the bill of lading;
for the gold at tlio rate of $19 )icr ounce
if the ore contains 0 0o ounce or more;
and for U0 per cent, of the leud contents
at the price paid for lead agreed upon
with tho majority of the Coeur d'Alene
miners, or at the actual average daily
sales price in New York of (he previous
week less 12.5 cents per hundredweight
Kxcess cf iron is to be paid for at the
rate of l.'i cents per unit, but no charge
is to im made for i xcess of silica. Zinc
noes free up to tlie extent of 10 per cent;
above that limit, 00 cents is to be
charged for each unit in excess.
From the gross value of the ore computed in the above manner $17 per ton is
to be deducted in the case of ores ol
which the net value does uot exceed tf20
per too; $18.50 for ore of net value
between J'.'O and $35 per ton ; and $20
per ton on ore of net value of $35 per ton
and over. The net values are the differences between tbe gross values und the
charges. Tlio latter are based on a
railway freight rate of $11 per ton on ore
valued at 150 per ton und over, and $10
per ton on ores valued at less than $50
per ton for full metal contents. Any
reduction or increase in ibe freight rates
is lo be deducted from ur added to, as
Ihe case may be, the graduated chaise
tixctl as above, Thus if the freight rate
was only $5 per tot) the charge on ce
of less than $20 per ton net value woultl
$17—$8=$1'2. Moreover, if during the
existence of tbs contract the price used
iu settlement' for lite lead lie less than
13.50 per 100 pounds, the treatment
charge ia to be reduced $1 per ton ; on
the other baud, if the price of Bilver exceeds Sft cents per ounce, oue third ol
the excess value over 65 cents per ounce
is to be deducted from the price of silver
used in settlement for ore under the
Deducting the railway freight rales
used as a basis in the contract the smelling churge on ore up tj $37 gross value
per ton is $7 per ton, and on oro of over
$55 per ton gross value $!) per ton, oies of
intermediate values receiving Intermediate rates. These aie certainly
moderate charges for silicions orea. In
the case of ores containing an excess of
of iron a liberal allowance is made for
tbe iion, which reduces the (.melting
charge correspondingly. Even more
liberal is the extent to which nine is
permitted tu go uiipenali__,ed.
With respect to the rates of payment
for the valuable inetnls, the basis ol 05
per cent, of the price'of silver nt New
York At, per Western Union quotation is
the same as has been employed lor many
years. The rate of $10 per ounce of gold,
when the tenor in that metal is 0 06
ounce or more, Ih also the same as has
been in effect for a long time.
Tlie method now proposed for the
payment lor the lead coutents of ores is
a departure from tho old method of so
much per unit according to a sliding
scale deleimined by the New York price.
We do not know what is lhe basis
agreed upon with the Coein' d'Alcnn
miners, and iu no much as it i.s not
specified in Iho proposed contract with i
the miners wo are of the opinion that the
latter have good grouuds'for objecting to
that purl, cf tlie contract. No one lues
to go Into a thing blindly. The alternative propositi-in to pay for 00 per cent of
Carnegie han founded more libraries
and musyums than you can shake a stick
at,   and   kupes on founding.   There is
another mime   Sttolclimau   of  the same
kidney over the bordther.   Ho has a lol

the name he started out wid was Donald
Smith.   Ho lived  for a number of yenrs
in the city of Monthtyal, and it wns the

and by right it ought to be culled Smith-

afraid the war would be over before they
