ELECTRIC   SMELTING.
Experiments Would Seem to Have
Been Successful in Canada.
A report demonstrating that electric
smelting of Canapian ores is now a commercial possibility will be issued early in
the year by the mines branch of the department of mines. It wil cover the re
suits obtained from the use of the 100-
tou electric furnace that was installed at
Sault Ste. Marie in 1906 for experimental
purposes. In addit on, the perfecting of
the process as carried out in Sweden-will
be dealt with.
Such an announcement is of great importance to Canada, and especially to
Ontario. Hitherto, the extensive iron
deposits in Ontario have been scarcely
touched, for two reasons: first, Ontario
has to import all its coal; second, Ontario
. iron ores contain a relatively high percentage, of sulphuj,.which could not be
removed by tbe blast furnace. The new
process will eliminate both these objections. Electricity will not only smelt
the ore, but, by means of the greater heal
that it will provide, i will volatilize and
drive off practically every particle of the
sulphur. The country surrounding the
important iron deposits possesses valua
ble water power resources, which, for the
most part have not yet been developed.
It is thus easily seen that the introduction of an economical electric smelter
will ma.e possible an industry of vast
importance to Canada.
ing in  a  hollow, looks like a ship  in a
storm, steering clear of rocks.
Of course, the rails are small, twenty
feet long, weighing 100 pounds. The
rails were brnt up on both end, leaving
a chance behind for a man to steer them,
much as a man steers a plow From six
to nine rails were bolted together—one
man and a horse to a bunch. In wrestliing
all day with these rails they get soaking
wet, and after eating a hurried supper,
and an hour or two warming or drying,
thev are in their blankets—and up and
at it by daylight. They feel interested
and are staving with it. They have
made two trips aud have some more to
make. Of course, it is hard on horses as
well as on men. So far, they have had
but one horse disabled. Billy Wade 1.
as good a trail pilot as there is in the
gang of four. They have a man to pack
and cook for tbem. There are two other
men, and good ones a Lit, packing to the
camps from here. They have been making two round trips a week, with seven to
ten pack hor.-es. It is likely they will
rawhide some now. On our way down
this trip to.lay we met a man going in to
sample one of ths properties other than
those mentioned. In conclusion I will
say there is still room for more.
THE WIDE WORLD
TULAMEEN   NOTES.
Tulameen, Nov. 15.—I see in your last
issue a good report from Leadville camp,
and it is all yeiy true; but, now, let me
speak a word for the men who are doing
the hard knocks, and judge whether
they are deserving of any mention. On
Jenson's contract, the Indiana tunnel,
two shifts are driving a little less than
three feet a day. On the Treasure mountain tunnel two shifts are driving over
three feet a day. Both are in now close
to 100 feet. The Indiana is all in ore, a
6 foot tunnel; the other is a crosscut.
This tunnel will cut a lead before reaching the one already opened up, which
they are running for. "I say this, knowing that boosting is neither necessary nor
desired.'
. Now, for the packers, without whose
work all would soon come to a standstill
We have here a man of experience on
mountain trails, and who is not afraid of
snow or hard work 'Buffalo Bill,'
'Death on the Trail,' 'Burning Daylight,'
and others are not in it witti J.O Smith
and his little gang of hostlers. Think of
dragging T-rails over a crooked and
and stumpy, steep aud clifty trail,
ihrough two to three feet of snow, a distance of 25 miles. To see them descending a long, steep stretch, and short,
crooked trail; here dodging a stump, and
there'a tree; raising over a swell and sink-
BANK OF MONTBEAL.
The removal of the Bank of Montreal
to its handsome new premises in the
Swanson block, on the northeast corner
of Bridge stre.t and Harold avenue,
shows that institution to have faith in
Princeton and the surrounding district.
The banking room presents a very pleasing appearance, the fixtures being of
coast British Columbia fir and plate
glass. The vaults are roomy and built so
as to be absolutely fire proof, and the
safe is of the latest design.

The Shaake Machine Works, New
Westminster, have received an order for
the construction of a Rochford dredge
to be used in gold dredging operations
on the Fraser river near Hope. It was
ordered by Mr. A. E. Hansford, of Seattle, an old gold miner from Alaska. The
dredge will cost about $30,000 and will
be ready by the first of 1913. When completed it will be towed up river as far as
possible by a tug boat, and will be taken
the rest of the way by the use of winches
and hawsers attached to trees on the
river bank. The deputy mining recorder
at Hope has issaed the license for the
operations.   It covers five miles of the
river immediately above Hope.   The remainder of the river between  Hope and
Yale has already been taken up by simi
lar leases.

A PROGRESSIVE POLICY.
The railway policy of the B.C
government, formulated by premier
Sir Richard McBride when the province was at a standstill, has. been
amply tried in this, the third year
of its existence. As a practicable
and progressive policy it has met
all that was predicted of it and cast
to the winds the ridiculous criticisms of the opposition vituperative
press and the 'honest' old lady farmer who led the Grits to ignominious
slaughter on that fateful November
Thursday, 1009. Turn where one
will there are the undeniable evidences that this policy has been the
cause of wonderful expansion in
industrial and commercial activities. Previous to the 'coming' of
Sir Richard the province had.lain
dormant, without the necessary
roads to open ud the mineral and
agricultural districts and without
railway transportation to promote
and encourage industrial centers
All has been changed under the
McBride adn .nistr_tion. The trans
provincial trunk road, aione worth
many millions to the province in
attraction of tourists and investors
and affording inter-communication
necessary for development of trade
between districts. Trails that were
only fit for a goat to p.iss over have
given place to splendid highways.
A netting of good roads ramify the
whole province and the result has
been corresponding expansion and
prosperity. The railway policy
Sir Richard McB.de enunciated in
1909 has made good on its merits
alone. Its critics have been lost to
view in the jungle of backwoods
journalism and grandma Oliver no
longer commands serious attention
from anyone but the 'Setting Sun.'
With tour years yet at the helm of
state our gallant captain and crew
will continue to sail on the silvery
tide with the banner of progress
proudly floating at masthead, and
having the pilot of the Similkameen
as advisor' on the legislative ship
all danger of shoals and sunken
rocks will be obviated.
railway or other public enterprise.
Right here Star wants to plant itself
'fourfooted* as being strenuously
opposed to bonus, subsidy, pap, or
any of the scheming devices whose
aim is to fleece the people—to make
the few rich at the expense of the
many poor. It is enough that railway and other corporate bodies
'cut melons,' 'increase capital' and
'declare surplus dividends' without
imposing the requisition fora bonus
upon the people. We are in full
sympathy with any move that will
abate the bonus nuisance.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The prairie provinces are about
to initiate legislation that will make
it illegal   to  grant   a  bonus to any
There can be no question as to
the right of victors to the spoils.
In any effort of individuals the
rights of conquest are not denied,
whether it be the outcome of physical prowess or the triumph of
some question involving mental
superiority. In the case of the
Turco-Balkan war now in progress
the thought is not to be for a moment entertained that the intrepid
Bulgarians or Servians shall be'
shorn of a single glory or right of
victory. These and their allies
must not be interfered with when
terms are dictated to the van
quished. The Turks h-ive ever
been a menace to the peace of Europe, their religion, commercial ineptitude, habits and customs being
at total variance with surrounding
nations. The Mohammedan Turks
never could assimilate with christians, and it is this propensity which
bars the heathen to any social-
political neighborliness. No Mohammedan to the west of the Dardanelles would be a sane dictum in
any settlement of the present war
.nd to Germany it would advise
'hands off' or serious trouble would
follow.
The continual cry of British
statesmen and warriors that the
German wolf is ready to pounce
upon the English and devour them
sounds a little odd to. the Canadian
who has met the wolf and the bear
on their own ground. It has been
always understood that man for
man the Anglo-Saxon is as good as
any other nationality in tbe world.
If, however, such men as 'Bobs'
go preaching inferiority of our race-
and armament it is possible that
a skulking fear may overcome some

Danger of the Use of Lead in Paint-
Substitutes Should Be Found.
Occupational diseases and accidente area
very serious feature of modern industrial
life. Almost every industry presents
some danger to the employes engaged in
it. Is fortunately true that these dangers
have in many cases been reduced to a
minimum, but, on the other hand, there
are some form:, of employment where but
little progress has been made in this regard. One of such occupations is that of
the painter. Lead poisoning is now a
well recognized disease. In some of the
countries of Europe it is true that almost
drastic measures are being taken to stamp
out the disease.
According to au article in a recent
number of the Labour Gazette, lead poi
soning is engendered by the entrance of
the lead through the skin, the lungs and
the alimentary canal. The presence of
the metal itsel* in the form of shot or a
bullet in the body has resulted in lead
poisoning years after the date of injur\
The symptoms of lead poisoning include
pallor, sallowness, distaste for food, sick
■ness, constipation, lassitude and several
minor ailments.
The causes for excessive lead poisoning
among painters may be traced to a varie
ty of removable conditions,   as well as to
others which will exist so long as carbon
ate of lead is used for paint, and red lead
for miking gas joints.    Painters too fre
quently   fail   to   realize   the seriousness
of the dangers to which thev are exposed.
Such   lack   of care  as  holding between
ihe teeth  a tool to which lead paint adheres;   taking   meals   without   properly
cleaning  the  hands,  and   various other
practices which permit of lead   entering
the system, make the subject to the disease.
■ Effort haoe been made to find a fin
shed substitute for poisonous mateiials.
So far, however, nothing of a satisfactory
nature, has been discovered, although
zinc pigments have been found lo be
fairly satisfactory for interior work. It is
interesting, however; to note that a num
ber of European carryiug on investiga
tions, with a view to obtaing substitutes
so as to eventally prohibit the use of
white lead for interior work, and the use
of red lead for all paiuting work.

THEIE   LONG   TRAMP.
J. R. Campbell, tbe druggist of Prinec-
ton, and W. M. Mason, from Oklahoma,
walked in from Quesnel last Tuesday
midday, apparently none the worse for
their trip. They arrived at Quesnel from
Ashcroft in Blair's machine too late to
make connection with the regular stage
leaving for this point- Both men talked
the matter over and, as Campbell is a
9^ man on his feet, they decided to
walk the no miles. Leaving Quesnel in
the morning they arrived at Goose lake
at 2 o'clock in the aft moon, where the
balance of the d«y and night w.s spent.
With an early morning start the travel
ers made Blackwater at 3 the second day,
where comfortable quarters and meals
were obtained. The third lap, from
Blackwater to Smithy's road house, this
side of McKenzie's stopping place, a distance of forty miles, was made in teu
hours, arriving there at 6, where they
say they had a spanking good meal. An
early start from Smithy's the morning of
the fourth day brought them into town
at midday. The roads were not the best
for walking, though there was no snow
on the ground. Goose lake was frozen
over. They could have loaded a wagon
with the game they saw; but thev had no
gun.—Fort George Herald

ANOTHER REBUKE TO JINGOES.
Sii Edward Grey, secretary of state for
foreign affairs, speaking in the house of
commons, and following the lines taken
by his cahinet colleague, Mr. Walter
Runcitnan, the other day, has condemned
as unwise and provocative the speech
made at Manchester by Lord Roberts,
wherein the 'German menace' waj referred to as a reason for a hasty increase
of British armaments. When, before the
recent recess, the military estimates were
being considered in parliament, Mr. Asquith, the prime minister, formally declared that good relations existed between Great Britain and Germany and
implied that it was the desire of the government that they should continue. His
utterances were those of a statesman anx-
'ous for the well being of his country.
They were welcome wherever sober men
had influence. Some seem to have had
it in their heads, however, that by making a noise they could create a sem
blance of a sentiment in opposition to
the prime minister and compel the government to enter upon a swashbuckling
noisy demonstration that, as far as it
could have effect, would tend to make a
war between Great Britain and Germany
possible or even probable. Mr. Runci
man, speaking as a cabinet member
dealt with these in no gentle way. He
condemned their work as deplorable and
pernicious He spoke of it as having be
hind it a small group of journalists, a
few solciers, some makers of armament,
and a section of people who believed
the dignity of the nation was raised by
iiritating its neighbors. It can be believed that this classification is correct.
No sensible Englishman, knowing whai
war is and what its co_t may be, would
advocate what would be calculated lo
bring it about Now, Sir Edward Grey,
who ranks in a way next to Mr. Asquuh
in the leadership of the government,
adds his word of censure, and it is both
straight and strong. It should help to.
check the mischief makers, those who
have selfish interests to serve in promot
ing preparation for war, those who pose as
patriots for the sake of the temporary attention' they can attract. th6se who
think nations exist to sustain armies and
navies, and those who, exaggerating one-
idea, convince themselves that what they
demand is necessary to the safety of the
state. Preparation for war, whether it
be'general or special, can best be made
bv men who have a sense of responsibility, both for what they say and what
they do. The navy jingoes do not have
ihis. The Asquith government, like its
predecessors, has shown no inclination to
shirk its duty in the matter of national
defence. The navy today in the number and efficiency of its vessels, is greatly
superior to anything in its history and
to anything in the world. What tbe
government has done in the past is evidence that what it will do in the future
will be equally satisfactory, whether as
regards its own work or in conj unction
with that whiih the colonies, in the fulfillment of their duty are ready to assume —Montreal Gazette.
