be competed with. Coupled with this
came the notice that the same team

the Silverion team was forced to play
several substitutes that day, this contention is manifestly absurd. Under

! OF il
Bradstreet's report of trade for laat
week follows:
Hot weather, holidays and stock taking, the first named ln particular, have
limited trade In the period under review and caused a practical suspension
ln Industrial activity In many cities.
Against this seemingly unfavorable
feature, however, is to be noted the
fact that a good business has been done
in all kinds of seasonable products at
retail, and the check to trade at wholesale has been largely a postponement,
rather than actual elimination of possible business. The crop situation has on
the whole Improved, and corn and cotton, the two leading crops most in question at present, have gained some of
the ground lost early In the season by
cold weather. The wheat crop is certainly in a favorable condition, because
harvesting has gone forward rapidly,
and prices on the whole have been quite
Corn shows the heaviest advance for
many weeks or for years past on reports of dry, hot weather damage, aided, however, by speculative manipulation and a fairly good export business.
Wheat is lower on liquidation, Induced
by good crop reports, and despite confirmation of the heavy deficit In the
German crop, the poor French crop and
of the short yield In other countries in
Europe. Oats are higher, owing to the
reports for domestic orop prospects.
Hog products were strong earlier, but
broke and finished lower on the week
on liquidation, caused by bear raids.
The feature In the retail trade last
week has been the very large distribution in all classes of summer goods,
induced by the hot spell. Wholesale
distribution has been comparatively
limited, but It Is to be noted that western Jobbers have experienced a good
reasserting demand, based on hot
weather conditions. The textile situation is fully as favorable as a week ago.
The boot and shoe trade is in good
June failures were the smallest of
any this year, but liabilities were
swelled by a few heavy suspensions of
banks, and were the heaviest for more
than a year past. Considering the increased volume of business In the past
two years the six months' record Is a
favorable one, as the total number of
failures for the year was 4,465, with
liabilities of $66,138,362 and assets of a
little less than one-half this amount.

The Granby smelter at Grand Fork3
makes a treatment charge of from $4.50
to $5.50 per ton on copper ores. The
charge varies in accordance with fluxing quality and other characteristics of
the ore. The company pays 70 per cent

Regarding the world's output and
Engineering and Mining Journal observes:
Tl„. unfavorable   result was   due, to
the small contribution made by the
Tran8vaal mines, a few only of which
t1 were operated during the early months
of the year. Deducting the Transvaal
output from the grand totals for 1899
'   i 1900 the statustlcs show  an   In-
rease In the other gold-producing
countries of $10,717,000. The largest
-al„s were made by United States, Can-
mi.i, Rhodesia and Brazil, while In
lus'tralla and China there were Important decreases.
•■In one respect the gold situation in
iiino was unprecedented. It has never
before happened that the output of a
great gold producing country has been
suddenly ent off entirely, or almost en-
tlrely- The Transvaal, which produced
178 070,761 In gold ln 1898, was expected to yield over $95,000,000 in 1899 and
«ll(i.()i.0.000 in 1900. The war broke
011t in October, 1899, and the total for
that yenr was $72,901,501, while In 1900
tlie only production was from the two
mines which were operated by the gov-
ernment In the opening months of the
year, and this work wus slopped when
t),e Hritish armies reached Johannes-
burg, Instead of $110,000,000 the
Transvaal appears In our table for only
"The United States, which In 1899
ranked third among the great gold-producing countries, In 1900 showed a
substantial Increase, which with the
limitation of the Transvaal, put it in
first place In 1900. Australia dropped
from first place to second place, while
Canada took the third rank, though at
a long interval, and Russia the fourth
place. These four countries produced
79,2 per cent of the total."

From the firing uf the starting gun, which
sent the yachts ulT to windward in a light
eaaterly breeze, the Constitution led her
rivals. At the turning buoy she was a
little more than two minutes in advance
of the Columbia, while the Independence
was hull down to leeward.
Hut it was on the run home that the
new llerreshofr yacht showed her great
itrength, beating the Columbia over eiglht
minutes in the 15 miles down the wind,
uml when the new champion of the America's cup swept across the line the Horton yacht was over seven miles astern.
Owing the lightness of the wind there
was no brilliant or dramatic scene to
chronicle, but it was full of interesting
events nevertheless. Tlie chief incident of
the contest was of course the failure of
the Independence to meet the expectations of her adherents. At no time during the contest to windward did she show
any weatherly qualities whatever. She
did not [mint as high as her opponents,
nor did she even for a brief interval demonstrate that she possessed a fraction of
thut speed which she seemed to have
shown when sailing by herself. That she
may he vastly improved is possible, but
that she profoundly disappointed her
friends today can not lie concealed, for in
light winds her excellence was chiefly
supposed to rest. When she got fairly
out into the open sea she pounded heavily in the southwest swell, and the more
she pounded the more she seemed to lose
So far as the Constitution's success was
concerned, it was no more than was expected of her by those who have watched
her keenly since her launching. Handled
splendidly and with rare judgment, but
not in the least better than the Columbia, her superior size and bigger sail plan
The lwast of some extperts that Nat
llerresholT had reached his limit when he
designed the Columbia are not Justified
by today's nice. Whether the Columbia
will heat the Constitution in hard weather
remain*  to   be  proved.
The Columbia was sailed in a most meritorious manlier from start to finish. All
tlie arts of the professional sea jockey
were practiced by Captain Harr, the sailing master, and his crew to overcome
their opponent That they had the inferior boat so close to her superior antagon;
ist all the way to the outer mark was a
wonderful piece of work. That the Constitution is by far the better all round
boat, let it blow high or low, is hardly
to lie doubted after her showing.

Bad Circulation is the cause of most of the ills that come with old age. With
advancing years there is a decline of strength and vigor—the machinery of the
body move9 with less speed and accuracy. Because of the weak and irregular
action of thc heart the blood moves more slowly, becomes impure and losea much
of its life-sustaining properties, and muscles, tissues andnervea literally starve for
lack of nourishment. A sluggish and polluted circulation ia followed by a long
train of bodilv ailments. Cold feet, chilly sensations up_ and down the spine, poor
npnetite and digestion, soreness of the muscles, rheumatic pains, hard and fissured
skin, face sores, chronic running ulcers on tlie lower limbs and other part* of the
bodv—these and many other diseases peculiar to old people aie due to a lack of
hcalthv blood and imperfect circulation. Restoration to health must come through
thc building up uml purification of the blood, thus adding strength and tone to
thc vital organs nnd quick, healthy action to the circulation.
S. S. S. being strictly a vegetable blood remedy and the best tonic, make* it
the most valuable and efficacious of all medicine for old people. It is free from all
mineral ingredients, and mild and pleasant in its action. It cures blood disease*
of every character, even those inherited or contracted in early life. As the system
gets under the influence of S. S. S. there is a marked improvement in the general
health, and as richer and purer blood begins to circulate through the body the
appetite improves, and there is a softness and elasticity about the ekin that you
have not noticed for years ; sores begin to heal, pains in muscles and joints gradually cease, nnd you find that it is possible to be happy and healthy even in old age.
Our medical department is in charge of physicians who make a study of blood
and skin diseases. If you would like to liave their opinion and advice in your
case, write them nil about it aud you shall receive such information and advice aa
you want. This will cost you nothing. Others have found our medical department of great benefit to them—their cure being much more rapid aa the result of
some special directions received from our physicians.

Railroading, Fishing and Mining
are tbe principal industries of British
Columbia and in all three of these
have employer and employee fallen out
over the wage question and bave pro-
ceeded to settle tbeir differences by
tying up the whole country in a series
of strikes. They fail to recognise the
rights of each other, each looking at it
from a selfish point of view, and the
public must stand back and suff. r
while they settle their differences. It
was bad enough for the business
interests of the Province when the
C. P. R. locked horns with the trackmen and worse when the cannery
owners and fishermen fell out, but on
top of these we have now n miners'

Here ll tho wny a  "business government"   builds   roads   in a  mining
district, as we judge from thn experience   gained   in   waiting for the lied
Mountain road:   In the tir-t place, the
local member tours  his  constituency,
satisfies himself that the road is needed
and   promises   to   secure   an oppro-
priation   therefore;   he   goes into the
House and convinces the   Government
of   the   necessity   of thn work and an
appropriation   is   put  on   the list of
estimates,  which  tho   Housn   passes.
This takes about six  months.    Tin n
the summer months roll by and nothing
further  is   done except  by the claim
holders   waiting   for   the   road,   who
address  inquiries to the  member and
the Commissioner of Lands and Works
The former answers the  inquiries, the
latter does not.'  Then, after  thn  first
snow   has   coinn   and   gone   again, a
surveyor is sent over the route  of the
prcposed   road  and a quarter of the
appropriation is absorbed by him.   By
this tirau winter has set  in   and   the
member and the Commissioner want to
know what can bo done  in the face of
Fuch weather.    Hut time rolls on and
the claim owners who want to develope
their  claims  have  to   content themselves   with   doing   only    assessment
work.    Spring  comes   and   the  road
supervisors   and   inspectors   and   tie
Commissioner   of   Lands   and Wmk i
draw  their salaries   and   settle down
again until the summer comes.    Midsummer heaves in sight and the local
road inspector begins to tlunk that the
government should be reminded of the
proposed   road.    This  takes    several
weeks.    Then tho Provincial inspector
of roads and trails  strikes the camp
and proceeds to find out if tbe  road is
necessary, what it will cost and  where
i  should go.   He makes up his  mind
