finm time to time have expressed my
views on the possibilities of the industry so far us we are concerned here,
ii nd I have always maintained there
wiis a great future for B.C. zinc. At
the outset of the new year the outlook
for the next twelve months is decidedly promising:. There has boen a rapid
rise in spelter juices and possibly
the^jmightbe some slight reaction,
but ii further rise would not surprise
me, though 1 look for only slight vitrei tions from present juices for some
time to come. Zinc is now being employed in so many new ways and
processes that tbe sujijily hardly
keeps jiace with the demand, and further u^'s for the mineral ar; being

Lemon Creek.
Returns have been   received   from
the carload of ore shipped last weok
to the Hall Mines smelter, at Nelson,
by the Kilo mine, on Lemon creek.
N. P. McNaught, Silverton, one of the
owners, accompanied the shipment,
and be lias since informed The DRILL
the returns received jier ton were $84
in gold and silver values equal to $5:
and this for the full consignment of
20 tons. The total for the full car
was $1680 in gold and $100 in silver.
A carload shipment from the same
property last fall gave $84 in gold a
ton, there being §20 per ton of an increase between tho two lots. The
Kilo's sliijmient establishes a record
thiit has seldom, if ever, been equalled
by any other gold property in British
Columbia. The Kilo is no mere prospect, for it ha.s been systematically
opened by a series of tunnels, raises,
shafts, and surface cuts. There is
blocked out upwards of 1.8,000 tons of
ore iu thu mine, sufficient to justify
the erection of a mill. There are 28

James Atwell Proves That Lumbago

by Diseased Kidneys,   j
Campbellford, Ont., Jan. 23.—(Special)—That Lumbago and Bladder
Trouble are both caused by diseased
Kidneys has been shown ln the case
of Mr. James Atwell of this place.
Mr. Atwell says:
"I had Lumbago and Bladder Trouble. In passing my urine would
hurt me so as almost to cause tears
to come to my eyes. I used medicines
and a bandage prescribed by my doctor, but got no relief. Then 1 tried
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and they cured

te  Be   In   Canada aad ■■-
foreed Allair Due Notice,
One of the most important fear
turcs ot Canadian legislation will be
the adoption in the very early future of the metric system of weights
and measures. Steps are already being taken to supply the school children with a knowledge of the metric
tables, but ample notice will have t0
be given to business men before the
change becomes operative. This notice may be fivo year9, or the Gov-
ernor-in-Council may have power to
make the transition stage even longer than that. The reform is one, however, that must almost inevitably
come. The civilized world, outside of
Britain, the British colonies, and tho
United States, to-day knows no other system of measuring than the metric. In these latter countries, includ-
, ing Canada Itself, tho use of it bas
been optional for years, and both in
the United Kingdom and in the United States thc reform is being advocated. A bill providing for the abolition of the British system, as the
old tables arc called, was accepted
by hottj Houses of the Imperial Parliament \this year, and at the approaching session there ls every reason to believe that tho measure will
pass all stages and become the law
of tho land. Committees of Congress
havo reported in favor of the metric
system being made compulsory"
throughout the United States, but
inquiry has shown that the domestic
trade of the Union is strongly opposed to the change, knowing nothing of
the advantages they would themselves reap by doing business on this,
the simplest, clearest, and most complete system of measuring that the
mind of man ever devised.
It may be of interest to Canadians to know that although the metric system was first applied in
France, the idea whs that of a great
■Englishman. At the Imperial Conference in London two years ago, when
representatives were present of the
British Government and all the self-
governing colonies, the following resolution was adopted:
"'That it is advisable to adopt the
metric system of weights and mca-
sures for use within the Empire, and
• the Prime Ministers represented at
this conference promise to give consideration to the question of Its
early adoption."
B.C. Indian* Dying Oat.
The Indian tribes of British Columbia, tortured by insidious disease, for the introduction of which
the whites are primarily responsible,
and face to face with tlie fact ot
rapidly diminishing numbers that
bespeaks extinction in the near future, are adopting heroic measures
in the hope of check-mating fate.
It is not race suicide in the general acceptance of the term that ia
to blame, but the usual penalty of
the red race when it touches the
white, for the vast majority of the
tribes are by constitutional disease
ruined, and when children are born
they are unhealthy from births
Thinking men of tho tribes are
seeking external remedies, ami the
adoption of white children by stealth
—varied with an occasional out-and-
out purchase—is becoming common.
Only a few years ago lho chiefs and
sub-chiefs of one of the Vancouver I*
land west coast trilies united to pay
I'eter Bellinger $4,000 for hi* five-
year-old son, who was received with
honor, elected a chief with elaborate
ceremony and alloted six wives, the
sturdiest young women of the trilie,
in order that extinction might be
averted. The boy was rescuod by
the provincial police and the tribe
ivas  left disconsolate.
Two white travolers returned from
Quatsino lust weok with the news
that in all that once numerous tribe
there is now only one child, a boy;
and after a long and interesting
pow-wow, the Halduhs of Uuoen
Charlotte Island havo sent their little girl to Quatsino to tie his ; „y-
niato and bride.

Influenza, Bronchitis, Pneumonia or
Consumption Often Follow a Neglected Cold—Avert the Danger by
Keeping the Blood Pure and Warm.
Heavy colds strain the lungs, weaken the chest, banish the appetite,
cause melancholy. Pale weak people, whose hands and feet are chilled
for want ot rich, red blood, always
catch cold. Their lungs are soft—the
heart cannot send out blood enough
to make them sound and strong.
Then conies the cold and cough, racking the frame and tearing the tender
lungs. The cold may turn into pneumonia, influenza, consumption or
bronchitis—a lingering illness or a
swifter death. All weak people should
use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The
rich, red blood they make strengthens
the heart, and it sends this warm,
healing blood to the lungs, and once
again the patient is a strong-lunged,
warm-blooded man or woman. Mrs.
Jane A. Kennedy, Douglastown,
Que., bears the strongest testimony
to the value of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills in cases ot this kind. She says:
"My sister, a delicate girl, took a
severe cold when almost seventeen
years old. We tried many medicines
for her, but she appeared to be constantly growing worse, and we feared she was going into consumption.
Often after she had a bad night with
a racking cough, I would get up to
see if she had spit any blood. At this
stage a friend strongly urged me to
give her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Within a month from the time she
began to take the pills she had almost recovered her usual health. Under a further use of the pills she is
now well and strong, and I can recommend the pills with confidence to
every weak person."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla are a certain cure for all blood and nerve
troubles, such as anaemia, debility,
lung complaints, rheumatism, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, partial paralysis, and the troubles that make the
lives of so many women miserable.

Roman Garmiali,
The wealthy gormands of Rome cherished a strong partiality for song birds.
Both Horace und Martial refer with
approval to roast thrush, and Ovid
recommends "a crown of thrushes" as

Thrushes' breasts were one of the Ingredients of the celebrated Apiclan

A   Waad.rful   Natural   Cariosity   I*
Weat Tlrslala.
Tbe greatest natural curiosity ln
West Virginia Is the ice mountain ln
Hampshire county.
The mountain, which ls 4,000 or 5,000
feet ln height Is situated about sixteen
to eighteen miles beyond Homney, on
a mountain road, and is known to
mnny of the people thereabout as the
"mountain of ice."
One side of this mountain, the western, is covered from apex to the river's
edge with loose ore or shale to the
breadth of at least a quarter of a mile.
Beneath this shnley rock, no matter at
what season of the year, there ls always plenty of ice to be found. When
the natives want to get a supply of ice
they go to the mountain, lift up some
of the flat stones and dig or pick out
all the ice they want. Ice has been got
there ns late in the season as Sept. 15
and that always near the surface.
The people suy that there ls plenty
of ice the year round, only requiring a
little deeper digging to get it Snakes
and other reptiles which seek to cross
the spot on which Ice is found freeze
and become torpid before they succeed, as the frozen and dead bodies of
many found lying on top of the ground
go to show.
Nothing will grow on er near the
ice deposit, it is too cold for thnt
Below, at the foot pf the mountain,
a progressive farmer haa built a big
log dairy or cold storage. The log
structure has been erected partly iu
and partly beyond the earth, and the
interstices between the logs for the
depth of several feet on the mountain
side are packed full and tight with ice,
while the same frozen liquid covers tlie
floor to the depth of several inches.
No effort is made to keep out reptiles,
for although meat, butter, eggs, etc.,
are kept in the dairy, as lt is called,
snakes and other such vermin always
become torpid before they can do mischief.
The only explanation of the freak
given by persons familiar with the ice
mountain is that the purt of the.mountain where the ice is found ls composed of loose rock or shale and that
during the rainy seasons the spaces in
the loose rock ate filled with water,
which during the long, hard winters,
which prevail in that section freeze so
solid that the heat and rains of summer never reach it strong enough to
melt It—Exchange.
Clothes and  Heat.
When we speiik of warm or cool
clothing we use ns absolute a metaphor
as when we talk of the sun going dowu
or the "rosy fingered dawn." Clothes
can communicate neither heat nor cold
to the body. Fur is not warm nor linen cool, except as they serve as conductors for tin? heat generated by tbe
body Itself. Fur and wool are excellent nonconductors of heat—that is,
they do not allow the bent of the body
to escape so easily as some other materials—and the reason why fur is one
of the poorest conductors of heat is
not, as might be supposed, so much because of Its thickness and weight ns
because of the air which i9 mingled
with or confined between its filters,
confined air being oue of the most effectual nonconductors of heat known.
A medicine that will keep infants
and young children plump, good na-
tured, with a clear eye and a rosy
skin, is a boon not only to mothers,
but to humanity. Such a medicine is
Baby's Own Tablets, which promptly
cure all the minor ailments of little
ones, and makes them eat well, play
well and sleep well. You can safely
take the words of thousands of mothers who have proved the value of
these Tablets; for instance, Mrs. J.
R. Standon, Weyburn, N. W. T.. says:
"I have proved the great value of
Baby's Own Tablets In cases of diarrhoea, constipation, hives, and when
teething, and I would not be without
them." The Tablets are equally h.~"
for the tenderest little baby or the
well grown child, and tliey nro guaranteed free from opiates and harmless. Sold by all druggists, or sent

I Her wifely pride rose instantly ln

went on mercilessly. "And you were

Huron the distinction of having furnished to Manitoba the bulk of her
Ontario settlers. Mr. Jameson received a sound course of training In
the public schools of his county, and
at the completion of his school education, being of a marked artistic nature, he took up painting and decorating as his chosen calling, devoting
his time and abilities thereto until
1893, when, largely as the result of
too close attention to his work, his
health failed, compelling him to consider change of climate and occupation. It was then that the voice of
the Great West called Mr. Jameson,
and hearkening to it he decided to try
what the pure, bracing atmosphere of
the prairies would do for his health.

Manitoba Mail Carrier Finds
a Great Blessing in
Editor and Proprietor of Dufferin
Leader,  Carman
Among all tiie newspapermen of
the Canadian West, few arc be tor
known or more widely respected than
I vV Jameson, editor an.l propr-emr
0f the Dufferin Leader. Both for hid
nersonal and professional qualities
Mr Jameson is deserving of the
;st0ein with which he ls generally
regarded. His aims and ideals as
an editor and newspaper proprietor
•ire tlu* reflection and counterpart of
those of his personal lifo. Thorough- reliability, solidity, Impartiality,
Integrity—these are bis dominating
characteristics as a man. and these
are the distinguishing characteristics
of his paper.
In some respects Mr. Jameson Is
not a typical Western editor. Caution and deliberation enter more
largely into his mental make-up than
is the" case of most of his confreres
Of enterprise he has no lack, but in
everv caso it is subordinate to accuracy and reliability. Change for mere
change sake offers no attraction to
his mind. Before Mr. Jameson goes
ahead he wants to be sure that he
Is right. His sense of responsibility
to the public is great and ever-present
and every editorial judgment he pronounces is made with constant reference to its possiblo effect, not merely
on the fortunes of the political party
to which the Leader gives Independent allegiance, but to the whole
public welfare, and to the future of
the country. Mr. Jameson has the
hahit   Of   regarding   every   public   and
political question as involving more
or less of :i moral issue, and. as the
ultimate test of their advisability, all
are tested hy this touchstone. The
things that make for civic and political righteousness, Hie things Hint an*
of good report, that aro of virtue ami
praise— these are tho things to which
Mr. Jameson holds, both as an editor
ami  as a ina*i.
Mr. Jameson is n tlrm believer In
the saving sense and wisdom of thc
gnat Canadian democracy. His faith
In the common people is deep and
abiding. He banks on the deep-seated
sense of rl„'ht existent in their hearts
and. though they make mistakes duo
to skilful and wilful misrepresentation of fncts and issues, they nre
learning thereby, nnd slowly educating themselves to B realization of
their needs and of the means by
which they can be attained. Nellev-
lng thus, it is no wonder that Mr.
Jameson gives firm adherence to
Liberal principles and general support
to lhe Liberal pnrty. His habits of
thoroughness and going to tlu* root of
matters, makes hlm dissatisfied with
any discussion that does not go back
i" cardinal principles, nnd hence his
editorial opinions nre of a rtpenesii
and weight such as are seldom found
■ ng Western weeklies. The same
habits of rellabllty oharctorlaes tne
Loader's news columns, whicb abo?"
from week to week u careful sifting,
arrangement and presentation ol the
local happenings. Typographically
the Leader enjoys a nlnh position
among Mr. Jameson's contemporaries,
Tasto and care are apparent on every
pi I each issue.    That the Carman
business men   appreciate   Hu*   local
pape*T Ih evidenced by the apace they
lake to announce their store news.

which he still conducts in conjunction

grown to considerable proportions. In
lS'JS, as before stated, be embarked
on his career as editor, establishing
the Leader, Carman's second newspaper, and, without prejudice to any
other members of the Western newspaper fraternity, lt may be said that
he has in the interval maile an enviable reputation and that his newspaper is the best evidence of his
merit  as   a   newspaperman.
Mr. Jameson's face and figure are
among those most familiar at the
conventions of the Western Canada
Press association, at. which he is one
of the most earnest workers. It is
not too much to say that such gatherings would hardly seem complete
were he absent and the members ri
prived thereby of llis measured speech
and placid wisdom, and the benefit of
his experience as a printer, editor and
publisher, ln -the ranks of newspaper
workers in tho West there are many
men who could better be spared in
this, the formative period of its life,
than can Editor Jameson. He stands
for and illustrates those principles
and practices that, whether In the
life of a newspaper, a man, or a
country, tend to the Best development
along lines of both material and mora',
progress. The personal success that
comes thereby Is not by any means
principal, though undoubtedly It Is a
desirable, result. This success Mr.
Jameson has deservedly reaped, but

he contends, and the influence he

"I am a mail carrier, and every
winter and change of season I often
suffered with coughs and colds, being
much exposed to cold and wet. Needless to say, I used doctors' prescriptions, but they did not relieve me. I
also used numbers of remedies, but
the cold sHIl clung to me. Eventually
my lungs became affected, and It Is
only through the prompt use of
PSYCHINE that I am alive today.
Psychine is a wonderful remedy for preserving health and building up those weak and run down
through exposure. Yours, etc., Hugh

Slocan, B. C
The provincial legislature will meet
for tho transaction of business next
Thursday. Thero is much curiosity
as to the probable railway policy of
the government.
With an incrensinply active competition among ore liuyers.with the dead
lino reduced from 50 to 55 per cent
stuff down to 30 and Sii per cent grade.
and railway rates reduced from Sll to
$10 per ton, Slocan producers of zinc
are feeling quite cheerful these days.
Zinc promises to bring the better times
silver lead has failed to realize.
Another Slocanmiueownerhas gone
on record as favoring the two pel cent
tax. Louis Pratt, manager of the
Lost Chance, says the tnx is fair and
has not worked a hardship on mines.
The carpet authorities of the Provincial Mining Association have again
been set at defiance and their agitation against the two per cent tax will
avail them nothing.
When corporations scrap the people
sometimes reap a benefit. The Great
Northern Railway has been handling
most of the zinc out of the Slocan and
deemed themselves happy. In order
to win a share in a rapidly expanding
traffic, the Canadian Pacific Railway
has cut the rates on zinc ores from the
Slocan to Kansas from Sll to $10 pei
ton. The railway struggle thus gives
the mineowners ?l additional profit on
their ores.   Every little helps.
Others have butted into the wrangle
started by TheDiuli. relative to smelter rates on Sloean ores. The Standard and Geo. Huston, lioth of San
don, are out with strictures on the
situation. Mr. Huston hnd a long
letter in the Nelson News of Sunday.
contrasting the prices realized on the
same class of ore- viz., 60 per cent
lead and 50 oz silvor from European
and local smelters. He asserts that
by shipping to Europe the mineowners cau obtain $0.15 per ton more for
their ore tban by selling to the local
smelters. To Europe it is 6000 miles
of a haul, to the loeal smelters less
than 200 miles. One point has been
established, the local smelters have
not raised their rates since I902j but,
in the light of the figures given by
Mr. Huston, are not the people justified in believing the local smelters responsible to a certain .degree for the
depressed condition of things in the
Slocau country 7
The elections iu Ontario last week
evidenced a remarkable revulsion in
public opinion in favor of the Conser
vativo party, tho turn-over being the
most pronounced iu the political his
tory of that province. The Conserve
tives have a majority «>/ upwards uf lo
members iu tho legislature, with nn
excess in the popular vole ol above
20,000. No less than live Liberal
ministers went down to defeat, and
Premier Ross himself narrowly i scaped t> ing left at home. While Conservatives naturally feel elated al the
great victory woif^gienterindeed than
even they or their opponents could
possibly imagine, it must not be for
gotten that a share in tha victory must
b« credited to those independent Liberals who placed political honor before
party fealty. The Liberals bad been
too long in power nnd they luul permitted a most corrupt .combination of
professional politicians to gain the
mastery over their party Organization,
in consequence of whieh thero luul
been credited to them u long catalogue
of crimes against public morals. The
victory of the ('nu.*eiv;itives has beeu
one of the people against machine
politics of corruption und misrule.i.ud
it is safe to say the lesson will not be
forgotten. Ho„. Mr. Whitney, the
new premier, has material of right

no man in business

neglect of it invariably
