Sloean senior hockeyists were invit-
e<\ to Sandon on Tuesday night for a
game with the Silver City aggregation. The team sent up was the same
as played at Xew Denver and included three juniors, while, several enthusiasts also went along, The game was
a good one and would have been finished had the referee, Main, not been
so biased in his actions against the
visitors. Sloean's light team were
guyed a little by the rooters, but they
quickly proved they wore all there and
able to deliver the goods, Tunis excel*
ling himself in goal.
Sandon scored the first goal in a
few minutes. Slocan gained confidence and took tho next, the score at
half time standing '- to 2. flay com-
menclug again Slocan shot a third
goal, and then trouble started. .1.
McKinnon, who had been roughing
thingn from the start, attempted to
jockey Terry, of Sloean, but missed,
aud then the latter was ordered to the
fence fi rtwo minutes for alleged trip-
piug. Milne, captain of the visitors,
would not stand for this, stating .McKinnon waa the one to blame. One
word led to another and finally Slocnn
Imi'..-lied to the centre of the rink,
cheered for Sandon and quit the ice.

the referee.
It was too bad the game ended as it
did. for it will tend to spoil hockey
through the Slocan. Snndon should
have called off the referee, but Sloean
should have allowed the disputed
poiui t.i pass, ai thev could have won
out anyway. Spectators stated the.

The Future of the Dry Ore Belt.
Editor Drill:
Sir, When a problem occurs involving the prosperity, almost the verv
existence, of one of our mining camps,il may be in order to start a discussion,
leading probably to a variety of thought and action, to find a solution to the
sains, ft appears to me quite evident that theSf 'nger creek cnmp,on which
the welfare of the city of Slocan so much depend ,, will not enjoy the activity
and prosperity justly Its due until tho question of how best to economically
utilize its immense tonnage of low grade silicious ores is finally determined.
As food for thought, which 1 hope will lead to action, I herewith, as
briefly as possible, present my views on the subject, hoping to be followed by
some  one with an abler pen:
With a few exceptions, such as tho one at the Viking, the ore-bearing
veins of thu Springer creek section may be classed under lhe two followiug
headings:
Type t.- -Fissures on   which   large   movements  have occurred,
causing the ''pinch and swell" form of vein.   These veins are in
places fully 50 feet wide, and   her: and  there   are  filled with
granite In all Btages of alteration from crushing, heat and chemical action.   Chertyveiu quartz, talcoze and chloiitic matter,
kaolinized feldspars, clay selvage, and so on. are closely associated with the mineral-bearing portions of the veins, which may
lie on the footwall, just under the hanging wall, or anywhere in
the vein filling.   Examples—Arlington and Black Prince.
Type ii.   This kind of vein is moro numerous than that of type
1. and occurs in smaller and more regular fissures and jointing
planes.   These   veins  rarely  show  evidence of movement in
themselves, but are frequently dislocated by small faults intersecting them at various angles.   The vein filling is usually crystalline quartz, carrying the gold  and  silver bearing minerals.
The ore is, ou the average, much higher grade than that from
the larger veins of type 1. mainly de." t.i the added gold values,
which mav range from i* to 880 per ton.   Examples   Meteor,
Howard Fraction and Exchnuge.
The general formation of the district is granite, which has nnny local
variations, from basic leases and masse"!  to acidic stringers, bars and zones.
A series oi basic intrusive   dykes   occur   in   tli" district, but I am not aware
that thev in any ease are connected with the main ore deposits.
As to tlie ores of the district, ta simplify the subject, these mav be class-
**i■>! according to certain limits of value, as follows: Class A. Ore worth say
536 to $1S0 per ton in car lots: Clas B, ore. running $15 to $35; Class C, ore
ruu pin i % to 515 pnr t »n. Ci tss \. a clean shipping ore, usually occurs in
liU'gd shoo'.s, or leat'c il ir Ivvii ■;. but in iv. iu part-consist of the richer por-
tions of scattered bunches of min ".d round iu the vein gangue, Class B
consists mainly of cobbinirs from Class A, but may. in part.be from numerous
ss A.   Class C is in part cobbing*
y  of  vein  gangqe carrying small
bunches aud grains of visible minerals; also  vein  quartz, clay selvage and
talcozo matter impregnated bv mineral solutions.
As Class A and part of "lass ]! can 1 a  profitably shipped in bulk under
it conditions, I shall refer onlv to ere ranging in value from St'i to .?20 a

I!, and il is, I think, the handling and treatment of this verv large class of
ore that constitutes the main problem to b' solved in the Slocan City mining
division. Veins of tho Arlington type produce the bulk of ore classed as B-
C, but a considerable amount of ore of alxiut the same average value, though
[of more silicious character, nnv be expecte I from veins of type 2.   Men who
I have sort,':! ore at such properties a- the Exchange or Howard Fraction will
(louiirtn this statement. Quite a numbar nf vein of typ • 'i occur on Springer
oreek and its forks, especially in tha Dayton creek, Robiuson creek and
Bondholder creek basin-.
From present information, I think the following properties likely to produce ores of Class B-C in substantial am units, in addition to ores of Class A:
' Combination, Tamarac Ottawa, Yount; Hear, Arlington-Speculator.Hampton,
Black Prince-Two Friends, and the Calumet aV Hecla groups. The Ottawa
group and its recently acquired northerly extensions form a large and valuable property. To dato the Ottawa has produced a larger proportion of ship
piui,* ore. Class A. than any property yet opened up in the Sloean drv ore
camp- but alroady lnrge dumps of ore, of B <' Class, have accumulated, and
it is nol detrimental to predict, that Ihou lands of tons of this class of ore will
be produced here and that the owners of the Ottawa will be pleased to Bnd
'sale for the same.
The best proof that the permanent prosperity of this camp depends on tbe
utilization ot its large bo lies of mediu n and low grade ores is most graphically illustrated al tho well known Aiiingtou mine. This mine is said to have
alseady produced upward *s of 10,090 tons of shipping ore. Class A. yet it is

Canadians who once had Bright's

Like all the others she was cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills.

tell what I suffered. My doctor said
I had Bright's Disease and Sciatica,
but I got no relief from anything he
gave me. At last a friend of my husband induced me to give Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial. H had no faith ln
them, but I thought I never would eet

MEN WITH LONG HAIR.

Matthew of Westminster tells us that
in 1127 Henry I. ordered all the soldiers of England to cut their hair a
proper length and not wear lt like women. This custom of wearing hair
like women rose, according to William
of Malmesbury, in tbe reign of William the red king. Young men, he
snys, then endeavored to rival women
in delicacy of person, to mince their
gait, to walk with loose gesture and
hnlf naked.

on the luxuriancy of his tresses, having
dreamed that be was strangled by
them, cut them off Immediately on
waking.
This example, he adds, spread
throughout England, nnd almost all
military men allowed their balr to be
cropped a proper length. But, alas,
this decency did not continue long, for
scarcely a year expired ere all who
thought themselves courtly lapsed Into
their former folly, nud those who had
no natural curls put on false ones.—

M. Carcenat, a jeweler In the Rue Le-

his stock and at once reported the matter to M. Raynaud, commissioner of police.
On the visit of the latter to the
shop, ln order to conduct an inquiry,
be was at once struck by the chattering of a parrot, which was moving
freely around the shop, and it occurred
to him that the parrot might be the
thief. He accordingly communicated
his suspicions to the jeweler, and the
latter, while stoutly maintaining the innocence of the bird, ngreed to have an

that the parrot disgorged over £200
worth of diamonds and precious stones.

6 PILLS /
WOULD PROVE A HINDRANCE TO
FARM  IMPROVEMENT.
It the efforts of certain parties are
successful, the farmers 6f Canada
will have to face a very unjust and
burdensome tax. A movement is on
foot to have fence wire, which has
for a number of years been admitted
into the country duty free, put on tho
dutiable list. The grades sought to
be affected are galvanized iron or
steel wire No. 9, 12 and 13. Practically none of these are made in Canada,
and since enormous quantities are
used each year in replacing primitive
rail structures, and enclosing prairie
farms, the Injury that a duty would
impose upon the rural, community
could not be readily estimated.
Since the admission of wire duty
free, Canadians have enjoyed the
benefits of cheap fencing of a very
desirable kind. This has not only
vastly improved the appearance and
value of hundreds of farm houses, but
it has added immensely to the comforts of winter travelling over roads
that were formerly very often impassible on account of snow blockades. To
put a check upon this sort of improvement by a tax that could work only
injury to the rural population without benefit to any other class of people would be indeed a serious matter.
Besides working an injury to the farmer, the fence-man ifacturing industry would be demoralized. To increase
the cost of wire, both fence production and consumption would be reduced, and farmers everywhere
throughout Canada would be hindered ln making improvements upon
their farms.
TOO GREAT A CHANGE.
"How  did   you   enjoy    those    two
weeks on yonr farm in the country T"
".Nut as well us i had expected.    I
suffered from a lack of my accustomed exercise."
"Your accustomed exercise?"
"Certainly;    dodging delivery wagons, street cars, and automobiles, and
jumping over holes in the street."
LA  GRIPPE'S  RAVAGES.
The Victims Left Weak, Nerveless
and a Prey to Deadly Diseases.
La grippe, or influenza, which
sweeps over Canada every winter, is
probably the most treacherous disease known to medical science. The
attack may last only a few days, but
the deadly poison in the blood remains. You are left with hardly
strength enough to walk. Your
lungs, your chest, your heart and
nerves are permanently weakened, and
you fall a victim to deadly pneumonia, bronchitis, consumption,
rheumatism, or racking kidney troubles. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills never
fail to cure the disastrous after effects of la grippe because they purify
the blood and sweep away Its poisonous germs. Every dose makes new,
warm, rich red blood, which brings
health and healing to every part of
the body. This is proved in the case
of Miss' Dorsina Langloi3, of St. Jerome, Que., who says: "I had a severe
attack of la grippe, the after effects of
which left me racked with pains in
every part of the body. My appetite
completely failed me; I had severe
headaches, was subject to colds with
the least exposure, and grew so weak
that I was unable to work at my
trade as dressmaker. I tried several
medicines without the slightest success until a drug clerk advised me to
take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I acted upon his excellent advice, and the
pills rapidly and completely cured
me. My strength returned, the headaches and cough disappeared, and I
am again enjoying my old-time
health. I sm satisfied that if sufferers from la grippe will use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills they will speedily
recover from those after effects which
makes the lives of so many people a
burden."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all the
common ailments due to weak and
watery blood, such as anaemia,
headaches, sldeaches, Indigestion,
neuralgia, rheumatism, sciatica, nervousness, general weakness and the
special aliments that growing girls
and women do not like to talk about
even to their doctors. But only the
genuine pills can do this, and you
should see that the full name, "Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People,"
Is printed on the wrapper around each
box. If you cannot get the genuine
pills from your druggist send direct
to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,
Brockville. Ont., and they will be mailed. 50 cents a box, or six boxes for
$2.50.
RAILWAY   MAPS.
The? Are a Vnluiilile  Aid and Guide
to the Triivi-lliiH  Pul,11,-.
Robert Louis Stevenson, one of the
most notuble English writers known
to the present generation, was wont to
say that nothing Interested hlm more
thun tlie perusul of n good map, und
without doubt a map that ls well made
nnd accurate catches the eye nud nr-
rosts tho attention of ninny people us
few other things can do.
Tbe men In charge of railway traffic
possess n most positive appreciation of
thla fact, and a large expenditure of
time and skillful thought is mnde on
this feature of railway publicity.
Said an official of the Chicago nnd
•Northwestern railway while talking on
this subject: "There Is no doubt that
the American rnilwiiy uinp engraver
hns carried his art well nigh to the
borders of perfection. I do not know
of any road maps or otlier detailed
data for tho state of Wisconsin, for
Instance, that equal those published
by our passenger department, showing
the hnunts of suiiiiiier tourists and fishermen. Tbey are on file in public 11-
brnrlcs ns part of their reference records. Other portions of the western
country have been similarly taken up
by our people nnd maps of n most
complete character made for them—
ln fuct, the western lines nro fully
alive to the vnlue of n good map ln
the hands of the traveler. The map publishing business of the lnrge railway
systems ls today reduced to scientific
principles ond handled ln a most systematic msnnsr."
THE ART OF SUCCESS.
It   im   Noili I ii*    More   Thau    Getting
Along With People.
"What a fine fellow Percy X. isi" remarked a business man one day to a
lawyer friend.
"Yes," rejoined the lawyer, "he ls.
But he has been with the K.'s," naming a great corporation, "for ten years
now, and he is getting only $150 per
month. He has a wife and three children, and, with their tastes, I fancy
they have all they can do to live comfortably. He ought to be earning mors
with his education and capacity."
"Why doesn't he rise faster?"
"I'll tell you. He doesn't rise and he
can't rise until he learns how to get
along with people. He can't manage
men at all. If he tries be gets himself
disliked, and he keeps them ln a constant state of irritation."
A similar conversation was recently
overheard between two business men.
Said one: "I hear that young Paul G.,
only four years out of college, has
been placed at the head of the T.
branch of the Y. company. I didn't
know he was so smart What ls his
strong point?"
"He ls a great fellow to get along
with people," answered the other man.
"No man would of course be put ln a
place of such responsibility without Integrity, fair quickness and ability and
a good education. But there are scores
of men who have all of those qualities,
and yet they do not go forward because they cannot exercise authority.
If they receive nny tbey either make
the men under them cross and restive
by petty tyrannies or else they are too
good natured and lose the respect of
the men, are Imposed on by them and
don't get good work out of them. It
seems to be the rarest thing in tbe
world to find young men who have dignity and keenness enough to maintain
discipline and yet enn mnke their sub-
ordinntes bear the yoke cheerfully and
render good service."
A third young man was characterized by the president of a great railroad thus: "1 haven't had a chance to
talk with him and find out how much
he knows, but I hnve watched blm several times as he manipulated a gang of
men, and he has for weeks managed
them wonderfully. We have rarely had
a man in our employ who could get so
much work out of n lot of meu and at
the snme time could keep them so decently good tempered."—Independent.

Labor, wide as the earth, has its summit in heaven.—Carlyle.
Learning ls pleasurable, but doing la

What is there that is illustrious that

A Story of Senator Vest.
The late Senator Vest of Missouri
used to say that the hardest question
he ever was called upon to answer
was put by the Uev. Dr. Styles, pastor
of the Presbyterian cburcb at Frankfort, Ky., in which the senator's father and mother held membership.
Mr. Vest met the clerglman in Missouri, and the preacher said: "Well,
George, nre you yet within the folds
of the church, and do you still remember the teachings of your good father
and mother, long since dead and ln
heaven, wbere I soon expect to Join
them? Now, what shall I tell tbem
nbout you wben we meet, about your
Christian life, your dally walk and
conversation?" The senator declared
he felt himself growing pale as he
walked away without even attempting
to reply.
Snoring In   Church.
Sir Archibald Geikle, ln bis "Scottish
Reminiscences," says that when ho
came to write down tho many good
stories and personal anecdotes which
he hnd received by word of moutb he
wns surprised to find there wus hardly
a single one of theni thnt hnd not nl-
ready appeared in print, i'or example,
tho Scottish story about the man who
snored so loud ln church that "he
Wakened US a'," he discovered ln sn
epigram of the Itestorutlon, nbout a
sermon by South:
The doctor stopped, began to cull:
"I'ruy wuko the Earl of Lauderdale!
My lord, why,  'Ua n monstrouH tiling.
You snore so loud—you'll wake the king!"
At  a Disadvantage.
Mr. Goodley—Mrs. Chatters ls better,
I hear. I'm glad you called on her to-
day. Mrs. Goodley—So am 1. I was
ushered Into ber room just as the doctor put the thermometer under her
tongue, nnd so for five full minutes I
talked nwny at her, oud she couldn't
sny n word.
Not a Mere  Ilnaenl.
"I understand your father said I was
a rascal."
"No.   He snys yon nre a fool."
"If that's his opinion, then we'll hnve
to elope.   He'll never give his consent"
One llcmove.

THE O'GORMAN MAHON.
He   Swaggered  OB  to  Death  aa   Ha
Had  Bivaggrri'd Through I.tfe.
The O'Gorman Mahon was about
eighty years of use when I met him
for the first time. One could still see
what a lion of a man he bad been. lie
was over six feet high. He had still
an immense mane of snow white hair,
and he had a long, white beard. The
face was long und horse shaped, the
eyes were still bright and fierce nnd
delimit, and the voice had a deep note
like the roar of nu enraged lion. The
O'Gorman Mahon was tbe very pink
of old fashioned courtesy, but one
could ensily see what a mnn he had
been. He wns the great duelist of his
day, a survival of the squires who
live in the pages of the chroniclers of
Ireland before the Union. He hnd
been out dozens If not scores of times,
nnd there wus a story of his fighting
some three duels all In a morning.
It was curious thnt he stuck to the
old dueling gospel to the end. I never
saw n man so disgusted ns he was
when he found that Mr. Parnell would
not send a challenge to Sir William
Harcourt for some Insulting language
which Sir William had used to the
Irish chief. I can still recall the scene.
It took place at one of the tables In
the tearoom of the house of commons.
The old warrior turned up at the consultation, looking almost radiant. He
sniffed the dueling ground from afar,
Some two or three of the then young
colleagues of Parnell were present,
nnd this Idea of a challenge appeared
to their modern minds, of course, ns
something grotesque But The O'tlor-
111:111 Million had come In perfect faith
that a duel was a certainty, aud his
long, horse shaped fnee became visibly
longer as Parnell calmly snid that he
did not regard dueling as rational or
necessary. The old gentleman was too
polite to express his real feelings, but
the pained silence which followed the
announcement of Parnell suQlclen'ly
revealed wbat he felt.
During the nil night sittings of tbe
eighties The O'Gorman Mnhou wns nl-
wnys ln his place. He mnde it ulmost
n point of vanity never to be absent
when any such work was going. He
wore the snme suit of clothes winter
nnd summer. It was a curious light
colored heavy tweed. Somehow or other lt seemed to accord with the white
mane and the white beard. He nlso
was a great smoker, but lnstend of a
cigar he used to smoke the democratic
pipe, nnd, if I mistake not, the tobacco
was both strong and cheap. He could
tell very strange tales of the old days
ln Ireland and in mnny other parts of
tbe world too. He hnd fougbt In some
of tbe many civil wnrs of the southern
hemisphere nnd hnd muny marvels to
relate of earthquakes, revolutions and
other natural and human phenomena
in those fnroff regions.
I wns with the gnllnnt old fellow
within a few hours of his death. Hs
died as he bad lived. He was full of
the round oaths of tbe eighteenth century, had his drink to the last, Joked
about his ninety years, refused nil cou-
solutions, tcfapornl or spiritual, nnd
swaggered off to death as he often had
done to the dueling ground. He was

Saskatoon district in particular. The
men who established the Phenix knew
exactly what tliey wanted, and set to
work to make the newspaper realize
their desires. The utmost diligence
was used to secure callable corre
spondents throughout all the large
territory in wliich the town desired
to lie regarded as the business centre.
The local news was aimed to be thoroughly and brightly covered. And, politically, the paper was to grind nobody's axe, and lo pull the chestnuts
of no party out of the lire. The local
Board of Trade had much more to do
with determlnlg tlie tone and direction of its editorial utterances than
had any party leader or any party association. Thus the Phenix was laid
down on unusual, and on broad lines.
It had clearly defined for itself a
sphere of usefulness and activity, and
a policy which, if adhered to, could
hardly fail to make it a newspaper of
paramount influence in the territory
In which it circulated.
Nothing is more certain than that
the Phenix has adhered to the policy
it laid down for itself at the time of
its establishment, nor that, by so doing, it has achieved one of the notable successes of western journalism.
Outside one or two others, no territorial newspaper is more carefully
read by the editors of the hig dailies
than the Phenix. It contains all the
news of its hig district, and it is always put together in a readable,
workmanlike manner. Its editorial
comment Is temperate in tone, and
weigthy in proportion to its moderation. Its typography leaves nothing
to be desired, for every issue Is brightly printed. Tho confidence and pride
of the Saskatoon business men in
their paper is attested by the many
columns they take each week to tell
of the business news of their stores.
Mechanically, the Phenix is an excellent paper—a credit to western- jour
ilnlisin in general, to the stuff that
gets it out, nnd to the supply house—
the Toronto Typo Foundry Company
—which furnished the material.
The Phenix is owned by a company, one of the principal shareholders being ihe managing director and
llu* controlling spirit of the concern.
Dr. .lohn Henry Charles Willoughby.
His is the personality of wliich the
impel- is a reflection, He it was that
in ilu* tirst place set the metes and
bounds of iis policy, mui it has been
be llial hns seen to it that Ihe I'llenix
from week to week travelled on the
course he had marked out for it. Dr.
Willoughby is even more Interesting
than his paper, lie has all the personal qualities noted nt the beginning
of this sketch, and, naturally, his
popularity in nnd about Saskatoon is
unbounded. Furthermore, he is a
notable and picturesque figure in the
life of the Territories. He came to
Saskatoon when it was nothing mure
llian a name on the map, twenty-one
years ago, in 1883. He was then hardly more than a boy, being twenty three
years of nge, having been born at Co-
bourg, Out., In 'in. In the Interval
Im had been educated at Peterborough Collegiate Institute, at Upper
Canada College ami a' Vlctorls University, ban graduated in medicine
with ilm M D.C.M. degrees, and had
taken post graduate courses al both
London and Edinburgh.
In   iss.",  there broke mil   Hi"  Mi tl
rebellion    in    the    Northwest,    ani
througout Hie  whole  "f  II   Dr,   Wil
1   us   surgeon   mei   pu:
veyor-general. He lt was who sent
the despatch to the Government, Intimating that the halfbreeds were arming. Dr. Willoughby was the first
prisoner captured by Rlel, and on his
escape his knowledge of the country
caused him to be selected as despatch bearer by General Mlddleton
to telegraph-head at Clark's Crossing
after the fall of Batoche.
In 1887—years before the Renaissance of Saskatoon—Dr. Willoughby
removed to Regina, where he at once
took a prominent place in the life of
the Territorial capital. He was for
six years in the council, and in 1892
was elected mayor. He was always,
during the whole term of his residence
in Reglna, one of the most active
members of the Board of Trade. For
fourteen years he has been a justice
of the peace.
In 1900 Dr. Wiillougby returned to
Saskatoon. He owned ono half of the
town site, and was appointed agent
for the trustees of the other half.
With the wonderfully rapid development of the town, his real estate interests kept him pretty fully occupied.
However, he finds time to superintend
a fine farm, in additon to his editorial
and financial duties. He had 600
acres under cultivation last season,
and owns one of the finest pure bred
Ayrshire herds in the Dominion.
Combining these multi-phased interests with his medicat work, and to
do them all well, It will bo seen that
Dr. Willoughby is no sluggard. In
point, of fact, ho combines with attractive personal qualities a power of
organization, a breadth of view, a
range of knowledge, and a systematic
industry that mark him as one of the
most forceful figures in the life of tho
Territories. He is not by training or
inclination an editor: yet by bringing
to editorial wark a well-thought-out
policy, and thoso qualities and attainments that have made him successful
In medicine and finance, he has
achieved ono of tho most conspicuous newspaper successes in the West.
That such should be the case is a tribute to tho opportunities offered by
journalism in the rapidly growing
West, and an Indication of the sterling judgment and ability of one who
bas so well turned those opportunities
to account.

"Talking about trains." said a prominent gentleman in Winnipeg the
other day; "I have travelled all over
the continent of America, and have
just, returned from a trip to New York
and Orleans, and I must say thnt I
have not travelled in such a comfortable Sleeper as is provided by the
Canadian Northern Railway on their
"Flyer." One has everything that Is
needed, a willing porter to look after
one's every wish, beautiful toilet, ono
of the best smoking rooms, with cosy
arm chairs, the room taking up the
width of the car, and at night complete rest is obtained owing to the
easy manner in which the cars run.
Wlu-n 1 go south again I will use the
Canadian Northern."
That is what every traveller snvs
after a trip on the fast train of the
Canadian Northern between Winnipeg
and St. Paul. The trip is made in
just 11 hours over the finest track
vest of Chicago. The train carries

THE SLOCAN DRILL,
Slocan, B. C
FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 17, 1905.
EDITORIAL   OKOl'PINUS.
The popular majority of the Conservatives in tho Ontario election is
34,055. Their majority in the legislature is 3G.
West Kootejmy last year contributed
$327,855 to tlio provincial treasury,
being about equal to the contributions
of East Kootenay and Yale combined.
A financial statement has been presented the legislature, giving the revenue for the province last year as
$2,638,260, with expenditures placed
at $3,030,237. Inasmuch ns upwards
of $400,000 of the outlay was paid on
account of the Fraser river bridge nt
New Westminster, which sum is
chargeable to the loan account of
1902-3, the government claims a surplus of receipts over regular disbursements of $27,000 or more. The opposition are not favoring that view of
the matter, but they cannot deny the
financial position of the province has
been much improved under Conservative administration. Another year
should see things work out with
more emphasis and clearness.
An excellent article appears in this
issue upon the future of the dry ore
belt surrounding Slocan. The writer
thereof ic thoroughly versed iu his
subject and the article will be read
with interest and profit. It is pointed
out that the secret to future prosperity
lies in the profitable treatment of the
vast bodies of low grade ores possessed by the various properties in the
camp. A discussion on the subject is
invited and all contributions will be
cheerfully accorded space in these
columns. A fuller understanding of
the riches and needs of the dry ore
belt will work to the greater advantage of all, and capital may bo induced to seo in them the avenues for profitable investment.
The legislature met at Victoria last
Thursday, tho opening ceremonies being marked by no special feature. In
his speech from the throne Lieut.-Gov.
Joly outlined no specially strong programme, the railway policy beiug
hinted at rather than stated. At the
outset the province is congratulated
on the general prosperity prevailing;
then it is stated the finances have Ix-en
put on a much sounder basis, that a
memorial has been presented to the
dominion government demanding liet
ter terms, that the Fraser river dyking
works have been completed, that methods for railway extensions aro under
advisement, that the mining industry
is improving, that agriculture has had
a prosperous year, that settlers arc increasing, tbat tho fruit-raising industry is expanding, and that amend-
incuts will be submitted to the county
OOUrt, supremo court, public schools
and game protection acts.
The >'elson Tribune, in rapping
The Dull on tho head for its strictures on the Hall Mines smelter's rates
for treating ores from this camp, fails
to grasp the distinguishing point iu
the case, i.e., dry and wet ores. The
strictures passed had to do with the
treatment of dry ores, and the figures
quoted may ix verified any day by
calling ut the otlice of the Ottawa
Mines in this tovvij. No denial of
those figures have been made by the
smelter people, or have the Silver
Lead .Mineowners over dealt with the
subject. The latter have enough to
do guarding their own province, wet
ores, but even they find thut by shipping tt) Europe they can get better
returns on their product thau at the
local smelters. Treatment charges on
wet ores havo uot increased since 1(.K)2,
but in very truth they are high
enough--too high, indeed, in these
days of mechanical progress aud me
tallurgieul advancement, to bo just to
the long-sufferjng mineowner. The
Tribune has butted into a discussion.
of the subject matter of which it re- ,
ycals scant knowledge. '      j

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
©ne road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. Al! live
