B. C. Davis Assayer  and Metaliurkist -for the Pyritic Smelter���An  Opinion on the Increased Mining Tax -Work  at the Smelter  The directors of the Cariboo Mining  company have declared a 1J_ cent dividend for the quarter ending September  30. The dividend will be paid on Oct.  31 to shareholders of record of Sept.  30. A much larger dividend could  have been declared out of the surplus  funds on hand, but the management  is pursuing the policy of devoting as  large a share as possible of its profits  to development and equipment purposes. The official reports from the  mine are to the effect that the property  is in splendid shape. Underground  the work is being pushed, both east  and weBt; along the ore bodies, with  excellent results. In new ground on  the Okanagan claim, the management  has opened up what it considers one of  the most remarkable chutes of good  grade ore every discovered anywhere.  This chute is unbroken and uufaulted,  and extends for 350 feet straight away.  To more effectually open this showing  and further increase the company's  ore iteserves anew additional'triple  compartment shaft is being sunk on  the Okanogan. This shift will permit  of two hoists running, and leave room  for a airway besides. It will of course  connect underground with the present  Cariboo shafts, "  A. B. C. Davis, who accepted tbe  position of chemist and metallurgist  for the Standard Pry tic Smelting company, has arrived in the city. Mr.  Davis has had a long and successful  experience. He has been .assayer,  chemist and metallurgist of the Cleor  patra smelter at Ouray, Colorado, the  Bouna Vesta S. & R. company and -the  Boston Gold-Copper Smelting company at Lddville, Colorado. " .  freight and smelting is placed at $21  ton. This leaves $79 on which the 2  per cent tax is to be paid. The tax  would therefore be $1.58 a ton. The  mine management claim that they  employ 80 men; who under present  conditions mine 100 tons of ore a week,  and the cost of mining the ore is  placed at $40 a ton. They contend  that it is unfair to levy a tax on this  $40; that the tax should be levied on  the net value of the ore; or, in other  words, that the- tax should be 2 per  cent on $39 instead of $79.  Taking $110 as the actus.1 value of  Slocan ore, and $31 as the actual sum  paiid for freight and treatment, a mine  that ships 100 tons a week, and keeps  the shipments at that rate for a year  will pay the province $8,216 in taxes,  and make a net profit of $194,584. This  does -not seem to be unfair taxation,  when it is considered that tVje cost Qf  marketing- Slocan QF? has been reduced  anywhere Irom 95 to $10 a ton through  the building of railways into the district largely through bond subsidies  and land grants from the province.  Compare the taxes paid by the-producing mine with the taxes paid by  the> producing sawmill. A sawmill  Gutting and selling 40,000 feet of lum.  ber a day pays the province 50 cents on  each and every thousand feet of logs  scaled .in the mill pond or mill yard.  The cost of laying a- thousand feet of  logs down at a sawmill in Kootenay is  $5, and the cost of sawing* the logs info lumber is $5, This leaves a margin  of $3 a thousand to the millman, out of  which he must pay the province 50  cents. _If tlie millman run-- his mill  s_ix.d-.T_. a. -week aud everv  week iu the  year, -lie  will  have   xxbetl up 1-2,4HO,')..0  JTobn O^Kegan,  si|periiiteutU.|it,.i],f   feet.vf logs; wil! .'avepaiJ^^province  the X<ast' Chance, -one of the famous  mines in the Slocan, was in Nelson on  Saturday'. In a general conversation  with a Tribune man he said that the  mine .had resumed shipments, all tbe  buildings and plant destroyed by.the  recent fire having been replaced;'in  fact, the property is now in better  shape for economical working than  ever" before, The big tunnel is well  underway, and when it reaches tbe  vein, the mine will be opened to a  depth of 1,000 feet.  Mr. Regan has been in the country  since 1890, and is well posted on the  conditions prevailing there, Like all  other men intrusted with the management of mines, he says that the 2 per  cent tax now imposed by the province  on the output of metalliferous mines is  unfair. To back up his contention, he  citeB the Last Chance-as an example.  Thc value of the ore produced by that  mine, for argument's' sake, is placed  at $100 a ton at the mine,   The cost of  ...THIS CUT SHOWS OUR.  $6,240 i�� taxes, and have anet prpfii.  of, $31,200.

Dibd���At the Greenwood Hospital on  : Thursday last, Eugene D. Sullivan,  __ aged 45 years.       ___   Behind this brief announcement is  an Interesting story of a gentleman  who played a prominent part in the  stirring drama of Butte politics, who  had1 strong personal and political  friends and strong political enemies,  but who died possessing the respect of  all who knew him. Eugene D. Sulli-  vaa was born in Houghton, Mich. His  father died while he wais still young  and the care of a family of six boys  and thre* girls younger than himself  fell on his shoulders.' He came to  Butte in 1878 and was Boon a prominent ��� figure in stirring politics of that  city. He was elected sheriff of Silver  Bow county, in which Butte ia situated,  and held the office from 1884 to 1886.  He ran for the office a second time  and received a majority of votes, but  owing to some irregularity in one of  the precincts, its vote was thrown out  and hia opponent was declared elected.  During his term of office he discharged  his duties faithfully and impartially.  The Daly-Clark fued was then started  and the Democratic party was divided  Into two hostila factions. The result  wag disastrous to many, including Mr.  Sullivan, and he emerged from the  conflict ruined financially.  For some time he kept an hotel in  Walkersville, a suburb of Butte. He  left that city ih January last and went  to Republic. From there he came to  Greenwood and went to work with bis  old friend Nick Tregear at the Winnipeg mine. On the night of Sept. 16  be complained of feeling unwell, and  on the 16th he went to Phoenix. He  started back to tbe mine on the first of  October, bat Mr. Tregear seeing that  he was still, a very sick man sent him  to tbe Greenwood hospital. It waa  found that he was suffering irom  typhoid  fever and despite the beat  (medical treatment death came at 11:35  Thursday night.   His brother, D. J.  Sullivan, was immediately telegraphed  for and he arrived from Butte Saturj  day night.     He made arrangements to  have   the body   embalmed by T.   M.  Gulley & Co. who also furnshed a magnificent casket.    By Monday's train,  the remains were shipped to Butte for  interment,  a large concourse of those  who knew him in past years following  to 'the   railway   station.   The   pallbearers were:   Jno. Hanley, of the R.  Bell  mine,   a cousin of the deceased,  Nick Tregear, Col.  Armstrong, R. E.  L,.   Brown,   J.   Roderick    Robertson,  James Cunningham, C.  J.  McArthur,  apd Wm. Hurley.  D. J. Sullivan, who is in the office of  the treasurer in Silver Bow county, is  the only surviving brother, but his  sisters, Mrs. J. Murphy, Mrs. Joe  Hogan and Mrs. O'Neill reside in  Butte.  Eugene D. Sullivan was highly respected by those who knew him. Always a strong friend of the working-  men, he possessed their confidence and  secured their support in -his political  struggles.  ELECTION DAY  The Date for the Dominion  General Elections  IS FIXED FOR NOVEMBER 7  A   St-oit" Camiaign ��� The   Writs  For a General Election Will Be  Nailed Tomorrow,  A CIVIC DEADLOCK  Mayor Refuses to Sign Agreement  Settling Rendell Case.  For two hours and a half the Greenwood council wrangled over the agreement with Rendell & Co. and in that  time did' not succeed in adopting the  minutes of the previous meeting.  Mayor Hardy was in the chair and  Aid. Galloway, Sutherland and Sulli-  von were present. The clerk read the  minutes and Aid. Galloway moved  their adoption. The mayor at once attacked the agreement passed by the  council and said that he would never  sign the same until Rendell & Co.  lowered the sidewalk. No one seconded  the motion to adopt the minutes and at  10:30 Aid. Galloway, seeing no prospects of any business being done, left  the. council chamber and the council  without a quorum.  The action of the mayor places the  council in a peculiar position.. By a  unanimous vote they decided to give  $5,000 to Rendell & Co, jn settlement  of tlieir suit and wired their .solicitor..  Ottawa, Ont., October 8. An order  in 'council was passed aj|��.approved  today dissolving parliament and a  proclamation will be issued to that  effect tomorrow. The writs for a  general election will also be mailed to -  morrow. Nominations will take place  on Oct 31, and voting a week later on  Nov. 7. The campaign will thus be  one of the shortest in the history of  the country.  ALBA HEYW00D  Will  The    Prince    of   Comedians  Be Here.

The original, contractor is responsible "to^he govern ment and he must pay  current wages. The g-overnmerit has  abolished the ^sweating- system in Canada; the government has passed a  measure pr6viding for the adoption of  conciliatory methods in the settlement  of labor disputes; the government has  established a-department of labor and  publish/the I<abor Gazette in the interests- of labor; the government has  appointed an officer to enforce the pro.  visions of the alieu labor net and has  doubled the poll tax on Chinese coming, into this country.  In other ways its; legislation has  been in the direction of, promoting  the interests of the hiboring classes.  All this has been done in the last four  years, but the gentlemen of the Nelson  convention are riot satisfied. They  offer Chris Foley as a willing sacrifice  on the altar of Toryism. . The offering  will no doubt be gratefully accepted by  the Conservative candidate, but how  are the interests of'the laboiing man  to be thus promoted?  Wednesday, October io, woo.  A TORY STALKING HORSE.  The worst enemy of labor is labor..  Those,   who  are honestly*! striving-- to  promote the labor interests have more  to fear from the enemies within their  rank   than from those who have not  directly    identified    themselves   with  labor organizations.   T.he  nomination  of Chris Foley as a labor candidate in  the forthcoming federal election.is the  making   of a   stalking .horse. behind  which   good   Conservatives    hope   to  secure an advantage over the Liberals.  ��� We know that the rank and file of the  labor party are opposed to this playing  , into the hands of their ancient enemy,  the Tory party.    We .do not-say that,  either   the   avowed   labor, leaders   or  Chris   Foley   are   with   malice. aforethought dedicating the labor party in.  Ya'e-Cariboo,   to   the-: political sharp  practices   of   the Tory party; but appearances  are   against   them.     They  have been   told  by  those who are ac-.  quainted with  the political, situation  in. Yale-Cariboo  district,-that.a'l-*.bor,  candidate could not possibly be elected  in this  district,   that he cannot secure  votes enough to save his. deposit; they"  have   been   Avarned   by  sensible men  within their ranks,  that the nomination   of   a   labor candidate,- while-it  might help the  Conservatives,���'.would'  militate against-the interests of labor;-  they  did not go  into the tfelson convention  ignorant of- the political conditions or  their own   weakness in  a  -federal fight. In opposition to the advice  their friends,  within   and without the  ranks, they place  a candidate in  the  field who has no more chance of being  elected than Paul Kruger has of being  King of England, but who may succeed  in taking a few hundred votes from the  ~^E,iberal**candidater--The^majority'-of-  laboring   men   in  every constituency  and   in  every   cbunty    are   Liberals.  Theirs   is  a  policy of Jreform.   They,  are honestly striving after legislation  to   which  they  are'entitled and they  naturally   ally   themselves   with   the  party   whose policy   is in  a measure-  similiar to their own.    What is generally  true,  is true of Yale-Cariboo dis-.  trict.    Left   free,  the  majority ,of the  labor men would vote for Mr. GaliiherJ'  the   Liberal  candidate,   and   if   they  vote for Mr. Foley  they only help to  elect Mr. McNeill.  The labor convention at Nelson -promulgated a platform- They want free  compulsory education; they want a  legal working day of eight hours;  they want government inspection of  all industries, and the abolition of contract system on public works; they  want the public ownership of all  franchises and the abolition of Asiatic  im migration; they want the compulsory arbitration of labor disputes and  the prohibition of competition from  prison labor, and they want the compulsory arbitration of the franchise.  They declare in their platform that  they want all these reforms and in the  same breath they give the lie to their  statements by arming Chris Foiey  with authority to assist A.' H. McNeill  in defeating the party who would  listen to their ldemands. A careful  study of Canadian history reveals no  marked legislation by the Conservatives in the interests of the working  man during their eighteen years of  power, but still the labor convention  of Nelson sends out their representa-  iive for the purpose of securing the return of a Conservative. On the other  hand laboring men have secured much  during the four years of Liberal, rule.  Through the instrumentality of Hon.  Mr. Mulock, postmaster-general, the  House of Commons passed are'solatitTn  to the effect that every effort should  be made to secure to workmen on government works the current-wage and  J. P.

Quarterly Meeting.- He_d-^Com:
m mittees Appointed.
.The,quarterly, general meeting- of
the Greenwood Board.of Trade was
held iu tlie -city- Kail7on Wed.nesday
evening"; with President Galloway in
the chair.:.-R. McPherson and E. Ker-
foot were addecTto -the, membership of
the bbirdri The/annual convention of;
the Associated-Board's os Trade, whi. lr

aud preparations' will be._iri.-c.- to receive the visitors. It Was.also decided
to see Mr. Johnson-relative to haying-
the blowing- in of the smelter a public
function, and a committee was appointed to arrange, forthe same..-. Another committee was appointed- to; cooperate withthe^secretary in securing-
payment of arrears. ',--■ /
The secretary presented .a brief resume of the work done by the Council,
of the Board since the last meeting,.as
follows :• ..;.;<.'.,•,-■■!,.->■     ,:■ .
"Since the last general meeting of
the Board; thei.Gouncil of the Board,
acting under rights conferred on it by!
Sec. 9, Sub. Sec. 6 of the Rules. Regulation and-By-Laws of the/Board, has
held ten meetings, :all;called,tocq'n-
sider some questions-of public interest
demanding hurried attention.'"Among
other business transacted by the council has been the -publication of y5,Q00
copies of the first annual' report of the
board and the.distr'ibution of the same
where believed most expedient and in
the best interests"of the town and the
interests here represented. Only_ a^

States and Canada.iVTrie board has
interested itself with provincial government, in the matter of roads and
trails, and by petition to the premier
of the province, and by correspondence
and interviews with heads of departments and members diF the provincial
parliament has called attention to the
needs of better .j^n^of communication between this city and Kimberly>
Central and West Fork.cam.ps arjd to
the needs of a bridge across the North
Fork at or near Eagle City. The council's action in all thes& matters" has not
been without beneficja^ results.* In-the*
West Fork" roacl contrbversay. the
council took 'the stand ifdid, .because
of its earlier relation 'to this trail and
road, and because of the large Greenwood interes'^''^represented, i'J.hera.'-
The council "recognized th'e 'demand
for a road properly-located and properly built. T_ie*action of the department
of lands and; works.sub-sequently-has
justified the council's, attitude.   :_, ^    '
"The council belieVing that any increase taxation* <m the mining interests of .the "Country would not.(only
work injury thereto/but was an1 in
justice as well, "did what it could Jo
prevent the recen/t legislation of the
provincial parliament relative to mining tax. « - t
'.'The attenfion'of the board is called
to the approaching expositions at Glasgow and Buffalo in 1901.
"The council did not see its way
clear to recomme-.d'ar_y~ organized action or expenditure on the Spokane
fruit fair now open, owing to lack of
___ "The_f_nances of. .the board,,are*not
in a flourishing condition, owing to
the arrearage^ of so maryi; members.
The promised pledges of the members
would be sufficient for general expenditures" if .promptly paid but, unfortunately, these proinfc'es^have riot
all been kept.'.,_-_*V--  ", \"', '.    '
The following very sensiblearUcle
is from the "Winnipeg Commenjial:
As is   usual  about  this time of the
year, the .west is being flooded just-now.
witli   the."catalogues 'aud other, iftera-•
ture of., eastern departmental, stores.
The retail tra"dersbfvth'e west have'always had   a  grieyance: against these
stores for stepping into the field iri this
way at the   season of the year when
there Is a-little extra money ill circulay
tion .and- the  farmer ha^some cash;
with   which to make purchases,""and
they are quite justified in  feeling as
thej' do ithuut it.   These-departmental
Stores will sell only for for cash,  they
never Iif taliand to carry anybody over
a b^.d year, and they only solicit business' in' this country when they1 know
there   will  be a little ready money to
be   snapped   up.    The  western   retail
merchant is called upon to supply con-
sumers^Iiere with goods at all seasons,
to supply them on credit when-there is
no cash to pay with and  to  sometimes
carry  accounts for years  when  hard,
times strike the country, or when there
has been some individual- case of m'x-.-
fortune, and to the credit of the trade
it may be said tliat they never shrink
from   doing all that theircapital will
allow-of this sortof thing*, and sometimes   a   great deal  more, in spite of
possible  disastrous   results   to them-
jselves'.-'. It - does, seem,  therefore, too
bad'that when there is some cash trade
g-oing the.Be eastern sharks should slip
in and take it way  from local   traders.
And more so because there is no good
reason whatever why th'ey should get
the business.   They do not handle better goods, hor do they offer better bargains when  everything" is  taken into
consideration.    They make no redress
whatever if goods are not what have
been ordered and in the case of miscarriage in  delivery they do not hold
themselv«s  responsible.     The ' goods
have all to be ordered from catalogues
and  price lists  are often made to appear very superior to what they really
are.   The moral of all this is that west-
ern consumers should keep their trade
X -        ,
at ,home.   The remedy rest* with tliem.
