McGregor Negotiated the Deal-  Hydraulic Engineer on the Ground���Plant to  Be Installed Immediately.  MINING   NOTES  A ledge of ore carrying good silver  values has been opened on the Jack  Pot, a property owned by Al. Sanderson.' ������ "-      '-..'"'���'.'  The charter secured by the Greenwood Waier Power company has been  secured by W. A. Campbell and Jno.  McGregor who' have been in the city  for several weeks. The company have  acquired; the use of the waters of  Boundary creek and the power at  Boundary Falls: It is the intention of  the new owners, to immediately install  a plant below the falls fcr the purpose  of generating electricity for power and  light. With this obiect in view, G. B.  Riblet, the well known hydraulic  engineer, is at present on the ground  making surveys - in order to determine  the best plant that can be installed.  The company intend to furnish Greenwood, Deadwood, Phoenix and Midway with electric ��� light and power.  Handsome central offices will be built  in the city arid the general business of  the big concern will be transacted in  the city. It is understood that Wm.'  Mckenzie, the well known railway and'  mining man, is backing Messrs. Campbell & McGregor.  Messrs. Wood & Galloway who were  the principal. shareholders in the  Greenwood Water Power company, did  considerable work at the falls last  summer. A dam was built ISO feet  above the Cascade. This dam'is constructed of strong "timbers filled with  rock. It has a cement bottom, with a  S-fo'6t square waterway of 2:inch plank.  With: the present'dam a: 250-horse  power is available, but the new owners  intend'to raise the dam another 20 feet  so as to secure a big reservoir of water.  The ground to the rear of the dam is  well adapted for a reservoir, and by  building the dam another 20 feet, suf-  ficent water can be stored to insure  adequate power during low water. Mr.  Riblet who will have charge of the  work is considered the best hydraulic  engineer in the country. He put in the  Spokane system of waterworks and has  been the expert for several hydraulic  undertakings in the Kootenays.  Messrs. Campbell & McGregor will  start work immediately. They will  make every effort to have the city  lighted within 60 days. In the event  of their not being able to do so, they  will furnish bonds that the work will  be carried to completion. - ���  The generating of electrical power is  an important matter for the city. There  are several small industries that will  gladly avail themselves of the opportunity to secure cheap power and it  will also be an encouragement for  others to start in Greenwood.  THE.  (Jointless,  Lucky   Curve.)  No Screw to Break,  No Joints to Leak,  No old fashioned Nozzle.  Perfection.  Warrented,  Recommended  and sold by  Books,       Papers,  Supplies, Etc.  Office  Mike Kane has a 48-fobt shaft on the  Adrioridack, a Kimberley camp property. There is a 40 foot ledge on the  property. The ore carries fair copper  values and some gold.  . J. A. Crawford has completed an assessment on the Sappho in White's  camp. It exposed an excellent showing of copper ore, The Sappho is  owned by R. Stuart, H. R. Elliott and  J, A. Crawford.   ,  J. J. Farrell's Wellington camp property, the Butter Cup, is showing up  well. Mr. Farrell recently opened the  property in a different place from the  old workings and exposed another fine  showing of ore. :  The Sarah Consolidated company  has been organized by Fox & Ross,  Toronto, for the purpose of acquiring  the Belleview, Showshoe, Toledo,  Diamond, Alice and other Camp McKinney properties.  Robt. Wood received word from Clement Vaschar, who is managing the  Okanogan mine at Peticton, that a  new lead of rich of copper was recently  uncovered on the property. Shipments  from this mine to the Trail smelter  will be made this week.  A Montreal dispatch says: The  James Cooper Manufacturing company, limited, is now manufacturing a  plant for the Montreal Boundary Creek  Mining company, limited, consisting  of a hoist, which is designed to handle  loads of four tons, at a hoisting speed  of 500 feet per minute, air compressor  of a capacity to operate 20 Sergeant  drills; and air drills of the Sergeant  latest- models, auxiliary valve type.  This - plant is to be installed on the  company's property in Deadwood camp.  -Railway; construction: in, Boundary  Creek has been unique in the matter  of opening up ore bodies. In other  .districts- ���railways ,in almost every instance .escaped any '^hidden bodies of  ore, but in this district several large  <ind important ledges have been exposed. ; Along the North Fork on the ��  Oro Denoro and the Emma the railway  grade made important exposures. ��� The  latest strike is on the Sunset mine in  Deadwood , camp. The branch line  which runs from Greenwood to Dead-  wood and Copper camps encountered a  lead of rich copper ore. Up to the time  of writing the railway cuts' diagonally  across the lead for 25 feet and has not  reached the wall. Specimens taken  from the cut show as fine copper-gold  ore as has yet been found in the district.. It has the additional merit of  being much richer in copper than any  yet found on the Sunset, assaying IS  percent in copper. The line runs west  of the tunnel on the Sunset. Further  development which will determine the  width of the lead will be watched with  interest. The Montreal Boundary  Creek company is to be congratulated  upon this strike, as it is a new lead of  richer ore than had heretofore been  found oh the property.  Waterloo stock is booming since the  company purchased  a  five-stamp mill.  The    Waterloo    conipany    secured   a  great bargain when it bought the mill.  The   entire outfit  was secured from a  property    on     Squaw    creek,   in    the  Methow   valley.    It   includes   a   five-  stamp mill, so arranged that it can, by  addition   of   machinery,   be easily   increased to 10 stamps, a 60-horse  power  boiler,   a  32-horse   power   engine  and  everything   necessary   to  form a complete   plant.    The   mill  was purchased  some time ago and the work   is now in  progress hauling it from   Squaw creek  to   Camp   McKinney,   a   distance    of  about   100   miles.    It   is   being moved  as rapidly as possible   and   the officers  of the company   hope to have the  mill  in operation in   a' little  over  a month.  The Waterloo will remain idle until the  ] mill is ready to start up,   all   the force  i at the mine now being engaged   in the  . work of moving   the mill.    Much   rich  i ore has been taken  from the   Waterloo  i and little trouble is anticipated in sup-  | plying  enough   rock   to  keep   the mill  going when it  once  started.    It is believed   that  the   mine   will   be upon   a  more than self-sustaining basis as soon  ! as the mill started, enough  gold being  1 secured   from   the  ore taken ou�� in development to pay the cost of operating  ��� both the mine and the mill,  j  era  ...

GETS CHARTER FROM GOVERNMENT  Is Now Fully Organized���Officers Elected���Important Matters Discussed���Banquet to Be  Given This (Saturday) Evening.  The Greenwood Board of Trade enjoys the distinction of being- the only  board in the Boundary Creek country  which has received its charter of incorporation. Last week the secretary of  state forwarded to R. E. Gosnell, the  secretary of the board, letters patent  incorporating , the board under the  federal act governing such matters.  The first meeting since incorporation  was held in Rendell hall on Wednesday evening and there were about 40  business men prrsent. Mr. Galloway,  who was president of the provisional  board, occupied the chair. The secretary read a resume of the business  transacted by the board during the  past two weaks and outlined the matters requiring the immediate attention  of the board.  The first of these was the White's  camp road.,-. Mr. Wood, on behalf of  the committee in charge, reported progress in the matter of collecting funds  to augument the government grant.  Mr. Keifer had promised $500, another  company $100 and there were several  subscaiptions of. $50 each. He felt  sure there would be no difficulty in  in raising $1,500. The secretary was  instructed to write the government requesting, immediate action in the matter, as all the time before-the snow  falls will be required to complete the  road.  Duncan Ross who with Mr. McMillan  represented the board at the Rossland  conference, spoke briefly in reference  to the work of the conference. Officers  were then elected as follows: President, S. Scott Galloway; vice president,  D. A. Cameron; secretary, R. EJ. Gosnell. These and the following constitute the council of the board: Duncan Ross, F. J. Finucane, Wm. Law,  A. T. Kendrick, R. Smailes, Thos.  Hardy, J. J. Campbell, James Kerr.  The question of the Mother Lode  smelter was discussed. Messrs. Hardy,  Galleway, Wood, Finucane and Ross  were appointed to represent the board  in welcoming Mr. Johnson to the city,  and'showing him any courtesies within  their power.  It was also decided to hold a banquet  at the'Imperial hotel on Saturday evening, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Keffer to be  the'guests of the board. Messrs. Ross,  Gosnell, Rendell, Finucane and Galloway were appointed a committee to arrange the banquet.  A 'committee consisting of Mayor  Hardy, Aid. Galloway and R. E. Gosnell were appointed to arrange the  establishment of a foundry in the city  with Messrs. McMlllen and Crowhurst.  Several new members were added to  to the list. The members of the board  are as follows:  Thos. Hardy, A. T. Kendrick, H. B.  Munroe, J. J. Caulfield, K. N. Rees, J.  P. Flood, D. A. Cameron, T. A. Garland, F. T. Short, F. F. Ketchum, Geo.

Business Blocks Supposed to Be on Grade Left  Away Above Street.  On Wednesday morning a large force  of'men started to work on Copper street  with A. McMillan as superintendent.  The workmen, acting under instructions, directed their energies towards  leaving Rendell & Co.'s handsome new  block a considerable distance above  grade. It will be remembered that last  year .Rendell & Co. were driven off  Government street because their premises were left some eleven feet above  grade. Now an effort is evidently being made to ruin their new premises  that are an ornament to the city.  The new, work is particularly unjustifiable since ��� the erection of the  block was delayed for, several weeks  while the city engineer and his assistants were deciding where the grade  actually should be.' As soon as this  was furnished the firm in writing the  building was erected at a cost of at  least $18,000. Now the workmen have  excavated the street until the building  is fully 18 inches above the street.  While other business men have been  subjected to loss and annoyance because of the vagaries of the council  and its officials, particular care is being taken that Rendell & Co. shall  bear the greater portion. There appears to be rio grounds for this unless  it is that the manager of the firm had  the termerity to oppose the majority of  the council who are mismanaging civic  affairs.  The latest effort at improving Greenwood streets has brought matters to a  crisis. Those whose properties have  been damaged are combining for the  purpose of engaging the very best  counsel to secure redress for the damages inflicted and to defend them  against further loss.

The Extension of the Electric Light Franchise  "Deferred.  Mayor Hardy presided at the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday  evening and Aid. Galloway, Beath,  Sutherland, Cameron and Fisher were  in their seats. C. A. R. Laiiibly, gold  commissioner, wrote in reference to  the . application, of the Old Ironsides  company for SO inches of water from  Twin creek. He intimated that - the  hearing of the application would take  place at Fairview about the first of  next month and that the city would be  notified, j  The city solicitor gave his opinion'  that the- city was not liable because  Miller Bros, building was not on the  grade.  The provincial government notified  the council that Aid. Sutherland, and  C. J. McArthur had been appointed  commissioners.'  A. C. Gait, of Rossland, informed  the council that everything was satisfactory in connection with the debentures and that the Manufacturers' Life  association would pay the money as  soon as��the signed debentures are forwarded to the head office.  Rendell & Co.. asked permission to  sink a cesspit in the alley at the rear  of their new block.- The cesspit will  be 24 feet deep bricked and have a  ventilator reaching to the top of the  building. The- council referred the  matter to the health officer.  Smith Bros. & Travis were given  permission tb'use the street while placing a basement under the Millerjblock.  Several accounts were referred to  the finance committee and others which  had already been reported on were  ordered paid.  The Greenwood Waterworks company's application for an extension of  the franchise was again considered.  Aid. Cameron stated that the company  were ready to have $5,000 worth of  work done, by the' time the franchise  expires or forfeit their right to an :��� extension. Mayor Hardy wanted security.  The franchise had already been peddled too long. He doubted very much  if the council had power to extend a  franchise.  Aid. Cameron said if the company  were not granted extension they would  put in a steam plant. .The mayor replied that there could be no objection  te this course.. The> matter was again  laid over.  Fire Chief Henton who was present  suggested to the council the advisability of purchasing a team for the use  of the department instead of buying a  hand hook and ladder, truck and hand  reel. He pointed out that these would  have to be discarded in a short time  if the city grew and that in any case  they would be useless in deep snow of  winter. The team could be used on  streets arid would pay for itself. If the  council would provide a team he would  undertake to get a large truck by popular subscription and' aid of. insurance  companies. This matter and the purchase of hose and other apparatus was  referred to a committee consisting- of  Aid. Fisher, Sutherland and Chief  Henton.  The following standing committees  were appointed: Streets, Ald.Cameron,  Beath and the mayor. Finance,  Sutherland, Wood and Fisher. Waterworks, Sutherland, Fisher and Beath.  The question of the waterworks franchise extension having come up later  in the evening the council decided to  grant the extension providing the  company put up a 3510,000 bond as  security for the installation of an electric light system.  mnmmmmmmmmmfci  ~~*m PUfflPiNG MACHINERY FOR MINE WORK, mmm^u.

Duncan Ross....'. Editor.  W. J. Hakhek.. Manager.  SATURDAY, AUGUST K   1S99;  GRAND   FORKS   GETS  IT.  The talented correspondent who tells  to an anxious world- the advantag-es  Grand Forks possesses���and several she  does not���has planted the Mother Lode  smelter on the Granby site, close to  the city of Grand Forks. He tells the  many newspapers which accept his  statements as truth that Paul Johnson  gave him permission to do this. Under  the circumstances the people of Greenwood would be indeed foolish to bank  on the Mother Lode smelter. When  the citizens of this unfortunate burg-  consider that the same correspondent  moved the Mother Lode mine over to  Grand Forks several months ago, they  might as well give, up the fig-lit and  migrate to Grand Prairie. It is a well  known fact that the Morrison mine,  and the Sunset, yes, even the King-  Solomon and Big- Copper mines were  carried away and planted near the city  of Grand Forks by this wonderful  newspaper correspondent. There is  nothing- left for Greenwood; no mines,  no smelter, no resources of any kind.  We would respectfully suggest to the  citizens of Greenwood the advisability  of throwing up the sponge and helping  the,, versatile correspondent to make  one great city in the Boundary country. We might assist him in moving  the chartered banks, . the wholesale  houses and all the industries that  flourish in this doomed city. If there  are any mines in the vicinity not yet  removed a special effort should be  made to send these over the mountains.  Grand Forks needs mines, and needs  them badly. We ought to send them  our city council immediately. Thej'  can easily unravel the municipal entanglements of the prairie city and  lead them from the financial quagmire  into which she has been plunged. We  '' ought to send Grand Forks our beauti-  , ful churches���they are a long felt  want���and we could spare the school-  house which the government didn't  build. Ttiey can have our board of  trade if they need it; but they can pass  resolutions enough without one.  Seriously speaking, the people of  Grand Forks are being made ridiculous  by a gentleman who thinks it necessary to write extravagantly in order to  earn his salary. Mr. Paul Johnson in  no way hinted or suggested that the  Mother Lode smelter would be built  near Grand Forks. He did not suggest  that there was not sufficient water  on this side, because he is one of those  experts that believes a large volume of  water unnecessary to run a smelter.  Grand Forks would have a much  better reputation if more were told regarding those advantages she does  possess and less about the greater advantages that particularly belong to  the city of Greenwood.  New Westminster, ...and , Henderson's  election will be unopposed.- The reason  is that ambitious politicians of the  Royal City believe that the collapse of  the Semlin government is close at  hand, and none of Henderson's influential enemies will help a rival to secure  a claim on the seat for. which all will  scramble at the general election.  MacPherson of Vancouver wished to  resign his seat and contest Westminster as champion ofoMartin's cause,  but the caucus at Vancouver dissuaded  him on the ground that the only result  of his success in New Westminster  would be the defeat of the government,  while his vote in the house will secure  this in a simpler way. MacPherson is-  determined, to stand by Martin in  wrecking the government.  Martin announces today that upon  the meeting of the legislature he will  formally press his charge against Cotton for falsifying the records of the executive council.  Semlin may not. meet the house in  view of the certainty of his defeat, but  if he does his executioner may be Hig-  gin's rather than Martin, and it is not  at all unlikely that Higgins will be the  next premier. That is the vacillating  ex-speaker's present ambition.  The White Front Store, next door to Postoffice, are clearing:  .'.; out the whole of their .  ioeg��itii��ii����(ce����o(t(|eic��t��ta<ie90tfa3t)t6A��ioteteAOoeioo��ooa9icg����iittti��ei**li*(  AT  ^^���'"KJ  AT  ....COST  SCHOOL MATTERS.  .'IT IS a pity that the children of the  city should be denied the advantages  of school life simply because the government has failed to do its duty and  the trustees have become disgusted at  its course. ��� The provocation is great,  but under no circumstances should the  city be without a public school of some  sort. It will be at least three months  before a new school can be built. In  the meantime the government should  order a public meeting of the householders. New trustees should be elected,  a teacher engaged and a hall rented  for school purposes.  Steps should be taken at once to  to afford the children a better means  of spending their days than running  about the streets.  ......����..��.��..��.>.........................................*.���**.....*������.*������*���...  ��� ecAooo��o��tto��eocee(ieaocoa��oca��eQAefto6*r9ec��*����o(ce��e��e��eso����ooo��o����o����OBi0ct>����������o��  Also Are Carrying a Full Line of  BOOTS, SHOES, AID GENTS' FORMSHIGS.

Although the railway is nearing  completion, although freight is now  . routed by rail to the city of Grand  Forks, the freight bills do not appear  to make shorter inroads upon the business man's bank account. A Greenwood merchant gives the following  figures to show that he is paying S10 a  ton more for freight now than he did  previous to the routing of goods to  Grand Forks. The class of goods  referred to the rate from Vancouver to Bossburg was 94 cents per  hundred pounds; from Bossburg to  Greenwood SI.50 per hundred pounds,  a total of $2.44. Now the rate is $2.21  per hundred pounds from Vancouver  to Grand Forks and 75 cents from  Grand Forks to Greenwood, a total of  S2.96. This makes a difference in favor  of the Bossburg route of 52 cents per  hundred pounds, or S10.40 per ton.  The public were told that the C.P.R.  was a patriotic institution that was  anxious to build into Boundary Creek  not with a selfish object in view, but  that the illimitable resources of the  district might be exploited and that the  wealth might be retained in this country. We fear that its patriotic intentions have been forgotten and that it is  already holding up the business men  for a higher freight rate than was  levied when goods had to be hauled a  much longer distance by wagons.

"I know that we will be sufficiently
along with this bridge by Monday
night, so that the tracklayers can get
across," said Foreman Campbell to a
Record representative this morning.
The, bridge referred to is, the second
crossing of Kettle river, just west of
town, where a force of men have oeen
busy all the week, early and late, putting the 120-foot Howe truss span. It
will thus be seen that the track-layers
cannot start on their 10-mile stretch to
the next bridge before Tuesday.
William Mackie, of Robson, who has
the sub-contract, from Porter Bros. &
McArthur, for putting in the spans all
along the line, has had his force of expert abridge builders on the work since
the rails were laid to it last Sunday,
and last night the men were working
by the light of the silver moon. Excellent progress has been made, but it
is_no small job.
In the meantime the 1,500-foot sidetrack , has ,been laid in the Cascade
yards, besides several spurs. \The surfacing gang has get to town and the
track is generally being put. in first-
class condition for heavy traffic.
Thomas Kelly, foreman of the telegraph builders, with a dozen assistants
brought their boarding car into town
this week, and expects to be here for a
couple of weeks. The poles have been
set and No, 8 galvanized wire stretched
into town, so that direct-telegraphic
connection can now be had with the
rest of the world. The instruments
were connected up this afternoon, and
for the present the office, will be at the
shed at the sidetrack, with Agent
Huckerby as the manipulator.
It is not probable that tickets will be
sold over the new line for some little
time yet, as the road must first be inspected by the government. However,
travellers are coming in and going out
daily, taking chances on a seat, on a
gravel car or on the smooth side of a
bridge timber. It was rumored around
town that a mixed train would be put
on tomorrow, but it could not be verified at the office of the contractors.
Freight has been coming in every day,;
and the volume is increasing.—Cascade Record.
from the  government a statement of
their policy.
"To show further how absolutely
without foundation the excuse is, at
the time that Mr. Cotton claims that he
and Mr. Semlin decided this, there is
an entry in the minutes of the council,
stating that the matter had already
been decided by the full council. If the
council had decided the question on the
4th of May in the way that Mr. Cotton
had entered it on the minutes, why was
it necessary for him and Mr. Semlin to
take the matter up again and decide it.
"I quite sympathize with the Colonist in thinking that it is- about time
that Mr. Cotton should make some public statement with regard to this serious
charge. When he does so, I suppose
his answer will be one that the public
can take some stock in, and not such a
statement as he made with regard to
the late change in the government.
As to that he affirms that Mr. Semlin's
action in asking for my resignation
came as a complete surprise to him. I
have not yet met a man, whether
friendly or unfriendly to, Mr. Cotton,
who would say that he believed this

Mr. Joseph Martin, ex-attorney-general, has given the following statement to the press for publication:
"The charge brought by me against
Mr. Cotton was of falsifying the records of an executive council meeting,
at which the Deadman's Island matter,
was discussed. "We were nearly all
afternoon considering the question,but
no conclusion was arrived at, and the
matter was agreed,to be laid over for
further consideration.
"Shortly afterwards Mr. I/udgate
took possession of the island, and
Mayor Garden wired Mr. Cotton, asking him what the government intended
to do. Mr. Cotton replied that the
government had, decided to have the
question of title determined before they
decided what to do with the island.
"Upon seeing this statement in the
Vancouver papers, I immediately wired
to Mr. Cotton and Mr. Semlin, drawing
their attention to the fact that the government had decided on no such thing.
Afterwards I went to Victoria, and
found that Mr.Cotton, who kept the records of the council meetings, had
made an entry in the minutes of what
had been done on May 4, to the same
effect as he had telegraphed to Mayor
Garden. I also found that, during my
absence, he had endeavored, to have
this record slipped through and approved by the council. At afull meeting of the council held after I had returned to Victoria, this question, of
falsification of the records of the council was brought up, and the entry made
by Mr. Cotton was scored out.
"If I am not telling the truth in regard to this matter, Mr. Cotton can
produce the books in which those records were made and show conclusively
that my story is correct, j am sure
that every effort has been made to induce him to produce this book, but so
far without success. I intend to bring
the matter up next session, but no
doubt by that time the book will be
lost, as Mr. Cotton has it in his own
"When Mr. Cotton found that his deliberate attempt to impose his own
ideas with regard to Deadman's Island
upon the council was a failure, und
having to meet the charge of telegraphing to Mayor Garden his own ideas
with regard to Deadman's Island as
the conclusion of the government, he
attempted to meet this charge by explaining that he and Mr. Semlin had
taken up the matter and decided it upon
behalf of the government. He claimed
that they had the right to do this,
owing to the extreme urgency of the
case. As a matter of fact, there is no
emergency in the matter. Mayor Garden had no right whatever  to demand

HERBERT <£ GUISE. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIME  MR. ALDRIDGE,  pi?  In  pay  the  the  The Trail Smelter Manager, on the  Silver-Lead Question.  The following is the text of the address on the silver-lead question; delivered "T>y Mr. W. H. Aldridge, manager of the Trail smelter, before the  Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  British Columbia:  Some two years ago I was asked to  enter the employment of the Canadian  Pacific Railway company, for the purpose of aiding in the development of  the low grade ores of British Columbia,  and the establishment of smelters at  whatever points might be necessary to  accomplish this, and prevent the further shipment of ores to the United  States. My understanding was and  still is that primarily the railway coin-  pay is interested in making it possible  to mine the low g-rade ores of the  country.  Having been connected for a number  of years with smelters';  now  members  of the American pool or trust,  and  at  times   when   we were   able  to secure  large shipments from British Columbia  properties,  I  am in a position to know  how   the   bullion  resulting   from  the  smelting   of   these   British   Columbia  silver-lead ores   was   handled.    Practically   all .the  smelters  are "bonded  warehouses," and the lead in the ore  and  in  the bullion is smelted and refined  in  bond,   and  the resulting  lead is sold in the English market,  doing this it was not necessary to  the duty of, 1,!^   cent per pound to  United States   government,   and  smelters gained somewhat on the lead  quotations becanse the English market  is usually not as  much  as  1J4 cents  lower than the American  market,  and  the United States government allows  them to sell nearly 10 per cent of the  amount   imported   in  the   New   York  market.  While the United States duty on lead  in lead ore is 1)4 cents per pound, the  duty on lead bullion is 2'/& cents per  pound. This difference between their  duty on lead in ore and on lead in bullion, shows in itself that the United  States wishes the smelting of these  silver-lead ores, but that they do not  ��� care to have more than a very limited  tonnage of foreign pig lead actually  reach their home market. They have  no wish and cannot afford to antgonize  their own lead miners by allowing foreign lead from either British Columbia  or Mexico to come in free.  There is a market for about 12,000  tons of pig lead in Canada per year,  and the price of pig lead in that market is much better, than the London  price, but, not quite as good as the New  York price. The present Canadian  duties are such that the Nelson smelter,  the Pilot Bay smelter (were it running), and the Trail smelter are not allowed the privilege of selling a single  pound of Canadian lead in the Canadian market, but are compelled by  their own duties to sell Canadian lead  in England, the United States duty of  2*4 cents on lead in bullion making the  New York market impossible for the  Canadian smelters.  Now that while Mr. Buchanan has  stated that 12,000 tons of lead, which  means 24,000 tons of 50 per cent, lead  ore, do not amount to much, yet I claim  that the best good to the whole country  can be obtained by at least giving the  mining industry of Canada, and if you  wish to put it so, the smelting industry  of Canada, the benefit of their own  market for lead, which at present is  absolutely impossible. This can be  accomplished, I think, by the amendments which I have introduced. I do  not think that anyone present objects  to the request which has been introduced to have pig lead from Canadian  bullion, refined in America and read-  ' mitted into Canada free of Canadian  duty. But of the 12,000 tons of lead  annually consumed in Canada there is  only a market for from 3,000 to 4,000  tons of pig lead, the reason for this being that while lead pipe, sheet lead,  and shot are protected (the duty on lead  pipe sheets, and shot being 25 to 35 per  cent.), the duty on white lead, litharge,  red and orange, which makes the market for the rest of the lead, is from  nothing to 5 per cent, or is actually less  than the duty on the crude material  (pig lead) of 15 per cent. Now if these  duties on manufactured lead were increased to correspond to the duties on  lead pipe, sheets, etc., all this "manufactured lead" would be made in eastern Canada and from Canadian lead,  instead of coming from Germany, as  at psesent, at a 5 per cent. duty. In  this connection, I wish to say that Mr.  J. R. Wilson, of Montreal, one of the  largest purchasers of pig lead in Canada, an.l Mr. Munro, of the Canada  Paint company (the largest consumers  of white lead in Canada), are both  thoroughly in accord with the proposed  changes in duties set forth in the resolutions.  But even if Mr. Buchanan's contention is correct, that 12,000 tons of , lead  are not worthy of considering, we still  have, for our surplus, the Chinese and  Japanese markets,, which, although  only a little better , than the English  market, have the advantage of being  nearer and easier to reach, and this advantage over the English market is  practically represented by the difference in. freight rates from Nelson or  Trail to the eastern sea board as compared to those to the western sea  board.  The objections raised by members of  the government to changes proposed  were that they were collecting $37,000  per year duty on pig lead imported,and  our reply to this was that they might  better cancel the bounty of $30,000 per  year which had not and would not have  the least effect in starting or establishing the smelting industry, and waive  their claim to the $37,000 duty -when  the lead came, from the lead ore smelted  in'Canada. I think that their objections to any increase in duties on white  lead, litherage, red lead and orange  were partly political and partly because of negotiations with' the United  States.  We all  appreciate the  value of the  mining industry to a country,  and we  are unanimous in wishing  to do whatever we can to encourage and stimulate  it.   I do not think we all appreciate  the value of the  smelting  industry  to  the mining industry, and to the  whole  country.    Such     places     as   Denver,  Pueblo, Butte, Helena and Great Falls,  were either given  their start or  are  largely dependent on the  reduction of  the ores,   and the large pay rolls and  permanency of the cities, bear proof of  the great  value to  the community of  this industry.    Even the Trail smelter  is spending in Canada,  directly or indirectly  some   $60,000   to   $70,000  per  month,   and this is not  spent at one  point, but  distributed  throughout  the  country.    If the ore" which  is handled  at   these   works   went  to  the United  States, practically not one 'cent of that  amount would be disbursed in Canada.  In the case of the low grade ores,  it  cost more   to  smelt  the ores than to  mine   them,   or,  in other  words,   ap-  roximately one half the benefit of having   a   mine   accrues   to  the country  in which   it  is located, and the other  half goes to the country in  which   the  ore is smelted.    When Rossland ores or  low grade lead ores from the Kootenay  go to United States for treatment, that  country receives the benefit of fully  one-half the total amoun*- expended  in  its handling.    Where such  ores go to  Nelson,   Trail,   or    Canadian   works,  Canada receives the  whole  benefit of  the mine.  Having explained the reasons for the  resolutions I have introduced, and  which I believe are identical with those  of Nelson and the Sandon Silver Lead  Mine Owners, I wish to say a few  words upon Mr. Buchanan's resolution  and comment upon some of the statements he has made. If you will read  this resolution carefully, you will  notice that it is asking the the Canadian commissioners to beg of the  United States commissioners to lemove  the X'/i cents.duty upon lead in lead ore,  while it says nothing about taking off  the 2% cents duty on lead bullion.  There is no objection to getting the  United States to take their duties off  ore and bullion, but taking it off of ore  and leaving it upon bullion would  mean, assuming present relative quotations in London and New York that  the American smelters would have a  market worth $30 more per ton of lead  than the Canadian smelters, or a direct  advantage on ore of $15 per ton in the  case of a 50 per cent, lead ore. This is  an advantage which could not be overcome, even though the railway hauled  the ore and bullion for nothing, and it  would be impossible to smelt a ton of  lead ore in Canada.  But I am not willing to admit that  the Canadian miner would benefit by  legislation closing the Canadian smelters, for by so doing Canada would be  making a present to one smelting institution in the United States, of the  entire lead-silver reduction industry,  and while the miner might temporarily  get better prices, yet that improved  price would only be such as would keep  Canadian smelters closed, and would  not be as favorable a price, in the long  run, as that they would receive if Canadian smelters were in a position to  compete with the American trust,  which they could and would do had  they the advantage of their own  market.  We all believe that with better prices  for lead ores there would be many  more mines working, but if, as Mr.  Buchanan intimates, there would be  200 lead producing mines as compared  to 10 or 12 now, what would become of  that New York market, which has  been aptly described as having a fence  around it and consequently whose price  (Concluded on page 7.)

Perhaps1 the most important public  flotation of a mining- company for a  long- time past is that of the North Star  Company, Limited, of East Kootenay,  the prospectus of which is published today, says the Toronto Mail and Empire.. The North Star has been for  some time known as the greatest, and  it is also believed the most valuable  body of silver-lead in British Columbia,  if not on the continent of America.  Its history is now fairly well known,  althoug-h the fact that it has up.to now  been owned by a close corporation has  prevented the details of its develop-  " ment and success, from being fully  made known. 'It has now, however, as  as was stated in these columns some  time ag-o, been placed oh the market by  the issue and sale of 260,000 shares of  treasury stock.  - The directors of the company include  some of * the best known men in the  Dominion, the president being- Mr. D.  Mann, and the,vice president, Hon.  A. A. Thibaudeau, of Montreal. The  other directors are Messrs. H. S. Holt,  Montreal; Wm. Mackenzie, Toronto;  and Charles E. L. Porteous, Montroal.  The reports of the experts on the development of the mine show a very  large quantity of valuable ore blocked  out and ready for shipment, the company being already .in a position to  pay - front this source alone one per  cent, per month on its issued capital  for more than three years to come.  With such a property and under the  management of the gentlemen named  above: it may be expected that the  North Star mine will jump at once into  the very foremost position of the mines  of the Dominion..   ,   .  Mr. AldrMge; on Silver-Lead Question,  is fictitious?   How  long does any one  believe it could  be riiaintained at A'/i  cents, when Canada added her product  from 200 shipping  mines?

Furthermore, the  American Trust and theGuggenheimers  have   infinitely   greater   interests   in  Mexico than they have in Canada, and  is it'likely that they would allow Canadian  lead  in free  without insisting  that Mexican  lead  also be admitted?  Mr. Buchanan  admits  that under the  same conditions Mexico shipped into  the United States 60,000 tons of lead  ore   to   Canada's   19,000   tons.     Is it  likely  that  the United States will ad-  ' mit or could admit  any  such tonnage  and still maintain  the  present   high  price?   On the contrary, the New York  market   would at once fall to' that of  the world's  market.    London  and the  Canadians   would,   in   the   meantime,  have killed one of the most valuable  industries of the country,  while their  lead mines would have been placed at  the mercy  of a single smelting company  in the  United States.   But the  American trust does want the smelting  of these lead ores, and would no doubt  urge upon the United States any legislation which- will kill the smelting industry  of   Canada,   and  at  the  same  time prevent too  much Canadian lead  reaching the New York market.   What  Canada requires and should ask for is  a removal of the present duties on lead  in ore and  bullion,   or  a  reduction   in  those  duties   without a discrimination  ing  the  duty   on   lead  in bullion, will  kill   the  lead   smelting  industry,   and  will not benefit the miners in any such  way as has been intimated, but will on  the contrary place them  absolutely in  the hands of the American trust.  I can reply to Mr. liuchanan's assumption of personal ownership of all  the mines and smelters, and questioning whether the best good could not be  obtained by closing the smelters, by  saying that if I were in that fortunate  position I would not change my opinion  in the least, and the fact that the San-  don Silver Lead Mine Owners have  passed resolutions almost identical  with these I have submitted, with the  additional request of the removal of  duties on lead in ore and in bullion, is  sufficient proof of the truth of my assertion.    I do  further repeat  that   it  would be a very serious injury to all  to prevent lead smelting here and to  give half the advantage of owning the  mines to the United States.  At the time the  United  States  duty  was  }i  cents per pound  I think the  freight and treatment charges were so  much  higher,   that I doubt   whether  shippers receive any more for their ore  than at present.    I can not admit that  the two years' campaign   of  the Pilot  Bay smelter was any great success, for  during that period I  think they lost  some   $300,000,    and   it  .was .for  this  reason rather than the McKinley tariff  of Xyi.   cents, duty  (as claimed by Mr4  Buchanan)   that   that   smelter    was  closed.   It is true a lease was given-'to  Braden brothers, but they  represented  Omaha and Grant and held the  lease  for them,  and no one doubts but the  Omaha and Grant were more interested  in seeing the lead ores, of British Col-  urhbia go to their United States works  than they were in seeing them smelted  at Pilot Bay.        ,  In' closing I. wish to say that the  most good to this community, including the miners, its railroads, its strielr  ters and its merchants will result in  doing that which will make it possible  to mine and ship the greatest tonnage  of low grade ores, whether they be  lead or copper, and I am satisfied that  this can not be accomplished by asking  the United States, as the Kaslo resolution does, to so legislate as to prevent  lead smelting in Canada at the yery  time when that industry "is being  started. That-industry does not and  has not asked protection,, but it does  ask that the Canadian commissioners  do not,request the United States commissioners to legislate against Canadian industries by appealing to them  to open the New York market to United  States smelters and close it to smelters  on this side of the line. In copper  there is a free exchange of copper in  ore and matte, and since the establishment of Canadian smelters Rossland  shippers have been able to get at least  $7 per ton more for their ore, and the  same would be true if the United States  removed ' its duties from lead and  treated it in the same way as it does  copper. But before begging the United  States to do something which would  injure the mining and smelting industries, it would be more consistent to  correct the Canadian duties. If, however, it should be considered advisable  to recommend any request being made  to the Canadian commissioners in case  they should meet, I would suggest the  following:  Resolved, That we urge upon the  Canadian commissioners the importance of a reciprocal arrangement with  the United States,'providing for a free  exchange between the two countries of  lead in ore, bullion and matte, and the  continuance of the present free . exchange of copper in ore and matte.  But in the event of the failure of the  commissioners to obtain a free . exchange of lead in ore and bullion, and  this meeting urge upon them the necessity of insisting upon the duties on  lead in ore and in bullion being made  the same; and should the United States  decline to do this, it is further urged  that the Canadian commissioners take  such action as will protect the smelting  industry of Canada.  The resolutions which I offer as an  amendment to Mr. Buchanan's motion  are:  Resolved, That the lead smelted in  Canada and refined in bond in the  United States should be readmitted  into Canada free of the Canadian duty  on pig lead of 15 per cent.  Resolved, That Canadian import  duties oh white lead, litharge, red lead  or other manufactured lead be increased to 30 per cent, to correspond to  the present Canadian duties on lead  pipe, sheet lead, etc., it being understood that the present duty on pig iron  be maintained.  i L>��G  Mi  ���sis  Wid-  Dining Rooms will be opened on Sunday,'August 13th.

The committee who were appointed  by the city council to deal with the  matter of purchasing additional fire  hose and supplies, met last Tuesday  forenoon and, after considering the  several brands and makes, unanimously decided to place the order with  The Gutta Percha and Rubber Manufacturing company of Toronto for 1,500  feet of their Paragon rubber-lined fire  hose, 2j4 inches, coupled complete, at  90 cents per foot ; also three-ply pipes,  three controling nozzles, three shut-off  connections, hose-expander, and other  necessary fittings required by the fire  department. A fire-bell of 700 pounds  weight and helmets for the firemen  were also purchased. Last week the  corporation of Grand Forks bought 1,-  000 feet of hose from the Gutta Percha  and Rubber company, all of which  go to prove the popularity and reliability of this company's goods in the  several fire departments in the west.
