"-Following is the copy of a bulletin
issued during the week by. the department of mines, Victoria, giving the mineral output of the province for 1901:
"This estimate is based upon the
actual returns of a number of the
mines, and for those mines from
which returns have not as yet been
received, the output is based upon
their approximate known tonnage
for tho last year, together with the
assays of the ores from the same
mines fur tlm previous year. You
will note that these are' not given as
final reports for tho year, which can
onlv bo obtained after all the returns
are in and checked very carefully.
These will be included in the annual
report of the department, which cannot be out for two months yet. 1
hand vou these figures now rather
than wait for tlie final statistics, as I
believe the prompt publication of
even an approximate official estimate
making so good a showing, will be of
benefit to the province, ar.d is gener
ally desired by Investors in our
"I think you will find this estimate
conservative, nnd very approximate,
quite sufficiently to show the progress
which has been made lo thc mining
industry during tiie past year. In
calculating the value of the products
the usual course has been followed,
and the average price for the year in
tlie New York metal market has
been used as a basis. For silver, lJ5
percent and for lead DO per cent of
such market price has been taken.
Treatment and other charges have
not been deducted.

example — for     washinu    purposais
es>*rjomizea soap.    But while    it    is
par-feet*"* true that the lime s*lu in
h*srd water nullify to aotue    extent
the soap by forming insolsjble    lu&e
soaps, yet  the expenditure of    soap
at Jea±t in toilet purposes, will     he
ratad to be consi-lLTabiy i.-as     than
•viiwi rain  water is,   i?erl, while   the
cleansing effect is just as good.    The
explanation  of this  is  that soap  is
so very readily .soluble in soft water
that (-onisiderably more soap is used
than is nes-Assary.    Everyoody knows
the slippery  filing of rain      water,
in which the "Mads have t>een washed
with soap, and iio amount of rinsir.g
would     appear to remove the soapi-j
r>*-is from the skin.    In this case tt
is oouhtful when soap is used wbeth-'

frtrsiiing.        In  manufacturing*     pro-,

the use of soap in soft water   is   an
•econon,y.       Jt     is in this way,     ef
coiir«e.    that,    the addition of soda,

cr the saving of soap would amount!
to tens of thousands of pounds    per

V.r of soup since using I»ch Katrine

matter of personal  washing there is
a     waste    of     soap produi-od rather
than an economy by using .soft water.    The- fact that a tablet of   soap ,
disappears  much  more rjuickly  wheo!
rain  water is used instead of    hard
tap Wnter is proof of this assertion.

Tho art of Itoger Payne was, perhaps, ultimately a product of the
extraordinary insiM-tuts that was
glvea to the pursuit of book-collecting in England about Uie middle of
the eighteenth century. With the
demand for fine buildings to encase
the trcasun.-s that were being gathered together from every possible
quarter, Itoger Payne, in the lan-
«unife of u. contemporary eulogist,
"rose like a star, diffusing lustre on
ull sides, and rejoicing the hearts
of all true sons of bibliomania." A
filthy, ragged, ale-sodden creature
himself, his name, j-erhaps, is still
first in the English school of bookbinding, and it was to Payne that
Englund owed her final supremacy in
the art ln which she had so long
contested with Prance for the premier place. His work, as he ex-
preassd it himself, was "very carefully nnd honestly done," the tooling especially being very beautiful,
and thr; fine and delicate method of
ornamentation, which Is so characteristic of his buildings, exceedingly
artistic and appropriate. He died
in want and distress Nov. '20, 1797.

above is the original tune, as set
for two voices, by Henry Carey,
which I. C, Smith, altered at
Carey's risoucst. AftaT Carey's
death, some controversy on the question havinsr arisen, his son. George
Saville Carey, wrote as follows
in support of his father's ciaim:
"In spite of ail literary cavil and
conjecture there has not yet appeared one identity to Invalidate the
truth of my father being the author
of the above important anthem.
Some have given the music to Handel, others to Puree!; some have
signified that it wns produced in the
time of Charles thc First; others in
the time of James the First, and
some have dreamed that it made
its appearance in the reicn of Henry
the Eighth. I have heard the late
Mr. Pearce Galiiard, an able .counsellor in the law. and colleague of
my father, who died some years ago
at Southampton, assert, time after
time, that my father was the author of 'God Save the King.' and
that it was first produced in the
year 1745 or 1740."
Mr. Taylor points out that as \l-n-
ry Carey died in 174.1 he could have
had nothing to do with bringing it
forward at the time mentioned, that
George Saville Carey, being a posthumous son, could not havo known
anything of the matter from his
father, and that tlie younger Carey
moreover, had a strong" personal interest in confirming thc impression
that his father was the author, as
he was an applicant for a Government pension of £200 on that

to Carey was practical identical
with that now in use, except for
the Introduction of the nntne of the

Duprez, the great but ill favored
French tenor, wus mice walking from
the Grand Opera House In I'm;* with
tbe baritone Barolluet, who was uot an
Apollo either. They happened to meet
Pvrot, the dancer, a man of very great
ability, but short and thin aud so ugly
that a manager once said he could never engage Perrot unless for tbe Jordin
des Tlantes (zoological gardens), as he
engaged no mon keys.
Perrot told tbem the story, and, wben
Duprez laughed at blm, Perrot said:
"Why, surely you need not laugh. If
I am ugly, 1 am certainly uot so ugly
as either of you."
"You monkey," said Dupres. "this difference sball soon be settled." And, see-
Ing a stranger pass who appeared to be
a gentleman, "Monsieur," said be, "will
you be so good as to arbitrate In a little
difference of opinion between us?"
"With pleasure," said the stranger,
"If I can."
"Well," said Duprez, "just look at us
and say whom you consider to be the
ugliest of tbe three."
The gentleman looked for some time
from one to the other and then said:
"Gentlemen, 1 give It up. I cannot possibly decide," and went away roaring
with laughter.

experience with the greatest remedy
of the present day—Dodd's Kidney
Rat Portage, Juno 18th, 1899.
Gentlemen,—I would like to make
the following statement for the benefit of whoswr would like to hear the
truth told. I am 75 years old, and
have lived in Itat Portage for the
past, 18 yOarn. Some months ago niy
wifo nsked me to got her some Dodd's
Kidney Pills. She was Buffering from
somo kidney trouble, nnd desir.d to
try Dodd's Kidney P'lls. I finally
got her a box, but she never lived
to take them. Slaving little faith in
patent medicines, I however, was
soon forced to change my opinion. I
had long been neglecting Mmliar
symplotnis to those of my wife;*, these
now became wary severe. Having the
box of Dodd's Kidney Pills in the
house, I thought I might as well try
them. I suffered terribly with pain
across my back with a scalding sensation when urinating. Well, the
first box stopped these symptoms,
and cont inning their use I became
complettcly cured. All the citiaclns of
Rat Portage were greatly surprised
at the change in my appearance, I
can tell you. They often ussd to
greet mo with, "Hello, Mr. Barnes !
Why how smart you are looking !"
They were not far astray; I felt
smart, too, and younger and in bet-
publish this statement with my full
endorsation of your remedy which
possesses real genuine merit.

many curatives being such that wore tte
germs of-other and dillorently seated diseases rooted in tho system of tn) patient—
what would robe, j one ill in turn would aggravate the other. We have, however, in
Quinino Wine, when obtainable in a sound,
unadulterated state, a remedy for many an-;!
grievous ills. By its gradual and judicata?
uso the frailest systems are led into conva.
luscence aud strength by the influence which
Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.
It relieves the drooping spirits of thoso witli

and, by tranquilixing the nerves, disposes to
sound and refreeliing sleep—imparts vitro;-

stimulated, courses throughout tlio veins,

Frank Fletcher won the mayoralty
contest in Nelson, but his opponents
gained the control of the council. It
was a victory for the men who be

British Columbia's mineral output
Jast year was valued at $20,000,000,
being an increase of 2.r> per cent over
1900. Tho remarkable increase is
4lie more satisfactory because of the
country being smitten with a scourge
Death has for a third time claimed
the chief justice of the province, his
lordship Mr. Justice McColl dying at
Victoria last Thursday night, after a
short illness. First was Sir M tthew
Baillie Begbie, next lion. Theodore
Davie, and now Mr. McColl, and all
within a few years of each other.
. i '     .    ra   —r-
F. P. Davis, K.C., Vancouver, has
..been recommended by the provincial
.bar for the position of chief justice of
British Colombia, made vacant by
.the death of Mr. Justice McColl. Mr.
Davis is considered tho leadinc legal
light in the province,as well as being
•ne of the fairest minded of men, to
his elevation would be popular.
Canada's population has been officially announced at 5,369,CCO, an increase during the decade of 530,42G.
As a result of tho censas, Manitoba
will be given three new members in
the Commons, the Northwest Territory two, British Columbia one, and
the Yukon Territory one. Ontario
will lose six members and the mari
time provinces four.
Next Friday the Liberals of the
province will meet in convention at
Vancouver, to decide upon the adop
tion of party lines in B. C. politics.
The proposed convention is regarded
as an important step in the progress
.of public thought, and the line of action thero decided on will havo its
impress upon future legislation at
Victoria. There aro many who profess to see in party politics the salvation of B.C. from tlie machinations of
the family compact on Vancouver
Island, which has so long dominated
public affairs; and that partyism wil;
.impart confidence to business circles.
True, individual actions and responsibility would be made subservient
to party wishes, but there would be
just the same question of ins and outs
as at present existing, with the same
dividing of tho spoils. On the other
hand, there are again those-and
their numbers are inereruiiog—who
maintain that this young province
needs a party with a hue of uction
stronger and purer than can be imparted by the traditions of either of
the old parties of the east. B.C. Is
.essentially the land of the toiler and
in his struggle for existence the latter knows neither ("rit nor Tory. To
appeal to him you must find him
congenial influences, with a platform
suitable to his needs, nnd these are
at his disposal in the Independent
Labor party, which is emphatically n
western product and well calculated
to alleviate the sufferings of the people generally. As nn organization
tho Independents control great political inlluonco and will, ultimately,
control the reins of power. The
Liberal convention and notions will
in no way weaken the Independents,
but rather assist them in their propaganda, a fact that will beconio apparent in an election following a re
distribution of seats for the legislature.
