The  amount of possible shipments seems to  be only limited by the state of the roads  and facilities for hauling. The continued  soft weather and the absence of deep  snow impede the work greatly, and the  stage from Northport over the new road,  which is getting worse eveiy day, occupies some seven hours in making the  14_ miles.  Mr. Frank Loririg states there,is a  probability of the work on the Josie  starting up again. Hoisting gear is to  be put in and is reported to be on the  rails.  One of the most likely looking claims  in this camp is the Kootenay, owned by  Phil Aspiriwall, who is working steadily'  on it.

The apathy; ahd delay  oii. the,part of the authorities in supplying this need are the cause of much exasperation and tend to diparage the  reputation of the government in power.  AINSWORTH.  The statement that the remainder of  the lease of the No. 1 at Ainsworth had  been sold to.Messrs.. McVicor &,Shaw is  not quite, correct. They have "siib-leased  the mine from Messrs. .Carter & Clarke for,  one year. The work on the Mamie, upon  whichaconsiderableforceofmenhasbeen  constantly employed since its purchase,  had reached a point from which it .could  be no futher prosecuted without the aid  of machinery.

A gang  of twenty men were sent there the  morning after the arrangement was  made and more will be put on directly.

The Phaii' Hotel, with its large  hall and dining room and general roominess is very well- suited for the purpose  and never have its halls held so gay a company as asseinbled there last evening. A  burglar would have had a rosy time'in  Nelson, for nearly every one was at the  dance' and that they enjoyed themselves  was proved by the. frequent encores, and  in spite ofthe unusual leugth of the programme it was carried through Avith a  spirit which showed that it is impossible to  have too much of a good thing. The floor  was good and so was the music and Mr.  Leitch made an excellent Master of Ceremonies, and if at first sight it appeared to  be a mistake to serve the supper iu the  ballroom that idea was quickly dispelled  by the Aladdin-like celerity with which  the supper rriade its appearance and disappeared, what-^ was left of it, after full  justice liad been done to' the good things  provided by the ladies, who supplied every-  tliirig.

Western lead-smelting works receive for  treatment almost every known ore oi  the  precious melals, with the exception of low-  grade gold quartz, says the Colorado Mining Review.    A very common  t> pe of ore  treated  by  them  coij.sists of mixed   sulphides���������galeua, blende,  pyrite. marcasite,  arsenopyrite, stibnite, etc.,���������which, when  present in largo quantities,  are ��������� roasted  before smelting, but also enter raw into  the  furnace charge iu  smaller   amounts.  Metallurgists with the conditions  prevailing in the far west are sometimes exercised  over the loss of a uiuriber of possible byproducts iu the usual system of reduction,  and especially ou account of the zinc.   It  is said, for. instance, that the smelters  are  saving lead, aud giving their main attention to that while letting zinc, which  has  a higher market value per unit, go to waste.  This is quite true of the  usual system,  though the "bag" process arrests pare of  the zinc oxide and other volatile products,  and the ordinary flues catch other portions,  which however are utilized very imperfectly.   Now the facts are these:   There are  very few lead mines iu the far west which  could be operated at a-profit for the sake j  of the market value of the lead, as lead.  There is always a demand at, the smelters  for heavy lead ores, of which the Coeur  d'Alene mines and a few others  produce  large quantities, but this demand again is  not for the lead as such, that is, to turn  out lead for the market, but- because it is  the basis of the  whole-smelting industry  in which lead is used as a collector of the  precious metals.   Besides this, the lead of  the far west always carries more or less  silver and a little gold.   Although called  lead-smeltiug,  aud rightly  so   from   the  technical standpoint, it is really, and from'  the commeioial  poi>.it of view, a process  for the extraction,"of silver  and   gold iu  which lead is used as the collector of these  metals.   The lead itself is by a by-product.  It has a maiket value, ot course, and after  being turned iuto   base  bullion aua subsequently refiued,  the proceeds   form   a  large item of income.   Ou its own ace, unfc,  however, very little lead would be produced west of the Joplin district of Missouri  and Kansas.   The base bullion, requiting  not merely softening operation but a  true  refining process yields small quantities of  other by-products, of Avhich little  account  is made.   As to zinc, so far from  yielding  valuable by-products, itis  regarded as a  positive detriment in   the   lead-smelting  process, andtores containing it are subject  to deduction in price.   The blende is   also  badly mixed with other volatile minerals,  so that a distillation process would give an  impure zinc.   When the western  couutry  becomes more thickly settled, so that there  is a larger local   demand,   and tthe   long  hauls to market are unnecessary,'it is probable that the whole system of ore reduction  may be changed, and brought into smelting like that of Germany, where practically  everything of value is worried out of the  ore by an elaborate system of concentration  and classification, followed by special processes for the difiereut classes of material.  Under existing circumstances this would  be impracticable, as would   be also any  general wet process, with electrolysis.   The  enormous costs for additional plant, the relatively high wages, the'cost of transportation of ores from mines   to   work   and   of  products from works to markets, stand in  the way.   While it would be desirable to  utilise all the numerous  accessory metals  and.substances ���������zinc,  antimony,  arsenic,  sulphur, and many others in less amount  present in the mixed ores, it must be remembered that the lead-smelting industry  of the west has been developed to a very  high degree of efficiency, regarded in connection with pecular conditions;  and that  even under obvious disadvantages it now  leads the. metallurgical  practice   of   the  world in its own sphere.   To have brought  the cost of smelting to within ������4 per ton of  neutral ore���������fuel,: flux,   etc.,   has   to   be  transported greater or less, distances,   and  where labor is by no means cheap���������is certainly a great achievement; and to do this  with a technical success measured   by   a  recovery of095 per cent of the silver and  lead,, and more of- thegoldi is a still greater  achievement.   Those who find fault with  present western  methods  do not   realize  either the intricacy of the conditions or  the remarkable   progress   that  has   been  made.

Two important divisions have taken  place in the House, on the second readings of the Workmen's Wages and  Mechanics' Lien Bills. We have previously explained the motive of these  two Bills which may be considered as  linked together, and we may recapitulate  their object in a few words. They provide that working men shall receive  their wages weekly in cash and supply  them with a simple means of enforcing  their claims if they are not so paid. Men  who have suffered from the evils of long  deferred payments and the robbery of  the time check system will appreciate  the benefits they will receive from'these  Bills. The measures were introduced by  the Attorney-General and were voted  against by the entire opposition. After  all the high talk about being working-  men's candidates, after accusing the  government of oppressing the poor man,  the entire opposition with Mb. Hume  among them, voted against the second  reading. 3Ien who have had to wait  months for their wages and then only  got half of. them will remember that  Mb. Hume voted against the Bills introduced to relieve them of all such  troubles iu the future.  A vote recorded against the second  reading of a Bill means that the voter is  opposed tp the spirit of the Bill. If he  has any objection to its methods, but  approves its objects, he has the opportunity of expressing himself in commit-^  tee. The opposition therefore, with Mr.  -Hume among���������them,- yoted-against-the  principle of  paying   weekly   wages in  cash.  Since the above was written, news  comes that by means of a bit of sharp  parliamentary practice Mb. Semlin  managed to throw out the" Workmens  ���������Wages Bill in committee.  MINING LAW.  ,It is impossible to make mining laws  in such a way that no disputes arise'out  C'i them. At first sight it would appear  that nothing could be. simpler, but as a  matter of fact the mining laws in most  countries with which we are acquainted  are extremely complicated. This maybe attributed very largely to the newness of this class of legislation ������and to  the inexperience as law makers of the  men who frame them and to the continually recurring necessities for change  which arise from the very eccentric  character of the ores themselves. There  can be no possible doubt that any amendment to the existing law should be in  the direction of simplifying it. Mb.  Hume's proposal to follow the vein  in accordance .with the law of the United  States is decidedly nob in the direction  of simplification. A telegram *from  Washington, D. C, which will be found  in another column,, points to the litigation consequent on this law.  COMING DOWN TO IT.  The slackness of times has been attributed to the lowness of the price of silver,  probably correctly. But there are signs  that tbe state of the market will be looked  upon as normal, anticipations of a rise  regarded as "castles in the air and work  prosecuted with vigor at present prices.  Our Kootenay ore is of such high grade  that it pays like a charm even -with silver  at 62. The big mines are shipping vigorously and are nearly all enlarging their  outputs. Mining properties are changing  hands at good figures and there is a feeling  of content everywhere. With increased  facilities of transport such as that afforde:.  by the Nakusp and Slocan Railway, work  will be still brisker. As instances confirming  oui remarks we may mention the recent  Idaho purchase, the contract of the Slocan  Star to ship 1,000 tons by the 1st of January,  the continued shipments from the Alpha,  the beginning of shipments from the Fisher  Maiden. The prospect of an increased  force of men at the Silver King and the  continually increasing activity at Trail  Creek, the purchase and re-opening of No.  1 by Mr. McVicor. AH capped by the  blowing in of the smelter at Pilot Bay.  THE  WAR.  Amid all the conflicting rumours that.  have been flying about there seems no  longer to be any room for doubt that  China is desirous of peace and that the  United States is prepared to act as a  mediator. According to the latest telegrams Japan Is making her peace proposals with characteristic energy._ She  demands the enormous sum of_CD,000,-  C00 yen, a yen being worth'about a dollar. Nor does she sit down arid wait  while these terms are being considered,  but continues to worry the enemy at  every point. If the roads will not suit  to march to Pekin or Moukden there are  plenty of other towns to capture. In  short, having made her demand (which  is to be increased by delay) she adopts  every means in her power to force her  antagonist to accept her terms on the  spol.  DRILLS.  AVe have more1 than once directed  attention to the enormous benefits which  would accrue to this district if the  government would supply one or two  drills for public use at a nominal charge.  We notice that the provincial government of Manitoba has provided drills for  boring for wuter, and they are a decided  success.. We do nob want them to bore  for water with, but we believe they will  be none the less useful nor will the demand for them be less because their use  will be confined to exploring the hills  for gold and silver.  NOTES ANP COMMENTS.  One hundred and eighty-six of the  Thousand Islands have been sold by  auction by the Dominion Government  to Americans. In return for depriving  Canadians of these beautiful spots, the  pride of the country, the treasury has  been enriched by the sum of $32,C.'J. At  this rate they would probably sell the  whole Dominion for a few millions���������if  there was dough in it.  :-^''All-good-Ainei'icans,-when-they-dier  go to Paris." The method of performing  the journey, however, is not stated. It  is doubtless expeditious and safe. But  whether the immaterialized Yankee will  be able to enjoy the somewhat material  pleasures of the gay capital is another  question. For instance the great dressmaker, Worth, would find it somewhat  difficult to make his creations "sit" well  on the spook of the late Mrs. Washington. Manhattan. Male persons who  know nothing of these things even say  that the female form divine is not rigid  enough properly to show off the fit of a  modern dress, but lovely woman has  firsl of all to be boxed up in a casket of  steel and then the dress is made to fit  the steel. But this has "nothing to do  with the object of this note, which is to  remark that however easily disembodied  Americans may cross the Atlantic while  they are in the flesh they find it a very  disagreeable" experience. A proposal,  however, is made to avoid the sea passage and to conduct the "luxurious  traveller to Paris by rail.  himself the preogativesof royalty or the  heads of great states. He had the cheek  to telegraph his condolences and congratulations to the Czar on his accession,  marriage and loss in the death of his  father. Probably the Czar was absolutely ignorant ol who "William Booth"  was and conjectured him to be some Hy,u  Muck-a-muck in his own country and  actually wired back his thanks. On the  death of the Pope William B. will solicit  your vote and interest to.secure his  election to the vacant papal chair, where  he trusts, by strict attention to business  and the introduction of.all the latest  novelties, to merit a continuance of the  custom so freely bestowed.on his predecessors. N.B.���������-A Great Reduction in  Crucifixes and Poke Bonnets. ���������"������������������  The proclamation of the new Czar is  good as far as it goes, but it will be useless in the direction of satisfying the  nihilists. They will be satisfied " with  nothing short of a constitution in the  fullest sense of the word. And itis not  unlikely that the chief movers among  the nihilists belong to that class of persons who, getting what they profess to  want, are only quiet until they think of  something else to ask for.  Serious outrages have,, recently been  reported from Armenia. It is the old  story. There never will be peace where  Christians are ruled by Mahometans. A  fearful massacre of Christians has taken  place and all Europe is ringing with the  news. Russia particularly is said to be  enquiring into the matter, and our  renders will remember that it. was a not  unsimilar cause which led to the last  Russo-Turkish war in 1877. The unspeakable Turk ought to know by this  time that he is only endured in Europe  as long as he behaves himself and it  would not- take much to make United  Christendom drive the Crescent across  the Dardanelles. The main thing that  has prevented this being done time and  again, is the difficulty of deciding who  is to occupy this splendid country which  the Moslem would vacate.  Already he can travel from New York  to Vancouver on wheels, and in a meas-  urable.space of time he will be able to  ride from the opposite Coast of Asia to  Paris in the same way. There only remains to connect these two loose ends,  and to do this a tunnel under the Behring  Straits is seriously considered. These  straits are only a few miles wide and the  construction of a tunnel under them is  simply a question of money. The St.  Gothard Tunnel is 9% miles long and the  Mont Cenis about 7_. These two joined  would probably reach under the straits.  The completion of the railway on the  Russian side is simply a matter of time.  It is being builb by the Russian Government for strategic purposes. A railway-  on this side to connect the existing, systems with the shores of the straits would  have to be a corhmercial undertaking  and it is at present a little difficult to  see that there would be sufficient traffic  in the freighting of millionaires to make  it a profitable speculation.  The Salvation Army is putting on  frills. "General" Booth on his forthcoming visit to B. C. will be the guest of  the Lieut.-Governor. We notice also  that this fake general is assuming to  In the southern part of Central America there is a nest of small republics. The  land they occupy is inteusely tropical  and almost uninhabitable to a white  man. As the country is extremely rich  in many of the most valuable products  of the tropics it is probably for this  reason that the ruffians who "run" these  little states have been so long left in  undisturbed possession of them. They  are a truculent lot and deal largely in  revolutions, knives and strange oaths,  half Spanish,- half Indian. The natural  destiny of these countries seems to be to  fall into the lap of Mexico, the rulers of  which are nearly all of pure Indian  blood, lineal descendants of that splendid  race of Aztecs from whom Cortes conquered the country. Under the rule of  those highly civilized barbarians the  country enjoyed a peaceful prosperity  that was then probably only equalled in  the world by Pern and probably Japan.  The Spaniards scattered it to the winds  and set up in its place the sovereignty  of fire," sword and gallows. For many  years the conquered race hid itself in  odd corners of the country, but it gradually mixed with its conquerors and  finally saw them out, and today the  Aztec again rules the land of.his ances-  Tors. To|| such people the rule of tlie  country,comes naturally. There is some  little danger of a Avar between Mexico  and Guatemala and the absorption of  the latter into. the Mexican Republic  would be greatly to its own advantage  and that of the world fit large as well.

These,- if  they w;ere all concentrated, would  scarcely be able to create a diversion for  an enemy's fleet, and if scattered would  not furnish a battleship.or even a torpedo boat for the defence of, each coast  city. If we carried out such a programme during a war an enemy with  a fleet of battle ships couid wreck cities  while we are robbing schooners."  AVe wonder if a model of Sir A. Caron's  treatment of the post office clerks at Victoria formed a part of the display which  gained a first prize in Milan. It surely  should be rewarded as the greatest display  of injustice, spite, stupidity and tyranny.  It would, however, be an isolated exhibit  as no other British dependency is so entirely under' the thumb of monopolist  autocrats as to make such actions possible.  NOTICE.  They have worked- up quite, a little  war scare in Washington over the Blue-  fields" business, where Great Britain declines to remove her protection from  a band of Indians and hand them over  to the blood-thirsty Nicaraguans. There  may be a canal through Nicaragua some  day and the Unitcd.Stat.es may have  something to do with it, and besides is  there not the Mnnroe doctrine which  gives to the United States authority  over everything American, from the,  manufacture of ice cream in Hudson's  Bay to oyster fishing off Cape Horn.  Therefore the United States is of course'  interested in this Ni_aragua.n affair.  But���������it is sad to reflect that there is a  flaw in this beautiful, scheme���������the  United States fleet is found" oti examination to be next to useless. The eagle  is very good at screaming, but he cannot swim. ��������� This is how the U. S. Secretary of the Navy puts it������ in his annual  report:. He recommends tliat congress  be asked to, authorize the construction!  of three battleships of about 10,COO tuns  displacement, each to cost, exclusive of  armaments, not exceeding -$4,OC0,('30  each, and twelve torpedo boats of from  one hundred ro three hundred tons each,  at the discretion of the Secretary of the  JNavy to cost, not exceeding an average  of$170,C'J0, or a total expenditure for  naval increase of 813,040,000. The argument in favor of this increse is vigorous  and succint. jT1i_ United States has an  efficient fleet of cruisers and gunboats,  which, while useful, are not properly  speaking fighting vessels. "They can  destroy merchant ships'^ says Secretary  Herbert, they can fight vessels of their  own class, but caunot meet armored  vessels, with any reasonable hope of success, and in time of war, scattered  abroad on the high seas as they would  be if we sent them against an enemy's  commerce, they would leave our unfortified seacoast, with all its cities absolutely without reliance, except upon  our four first-class aqd two second-class  ' battle ships, seven coast defence vessels,  NOTICE is hereby given that the under-mentioned respective amounts will be paid as  bounty for the head of every panther, wolf or  coyote killed in "a settled district of the Province  on the certilicate of a Justice of thc Peace that  such animal was killed in a settlement, and that  the head was produced to and destroyed by him,  namely:��������� - .

Francisco have  adopted a novel plan to raise money for  the, support of a ward for incurables at the  children's hospital. They are going to edit  the, Christmas edition . of. the Examiner.  W. R. Hearst, proprietor of the paper, has  .agreed to turn over the whole newspaper  plant to them and they are going to write  every line of the paper, manage the busiuess .department, edit telegraph news,  collect. local news, solicit advertisements  aud in fact do everything in preparing the  paper for., publication up to the time it  goes to the.composing rooms. The entire  proceeds of the Christmas edition of the  Examiner will be turned over to the ladies  to be "used f'or the support ot the children's  hospital. Mrs. Frank Pixley will be managing editor; Mrs. J. Downey Harvey, city  editor; Mrs. C. A. Spreckels, news editor;  Mrs. W. H. Mills, telegraph editor; Mrs.  George Lent, society editor; Mrs. Hall  McAllister, musical critic; Mrs. Reunie  ychweriu, Mrs. F. H. Noble aud Miss Laura  McKinstry, editors of the supplement.  Mrs. Louise Sloss will be the business  manager.  In addition to these there will be a large  staff of young lady reporters. The ladies  are very enthusiastic over the scheme and  promise to issue a paper that will be a  revelation to Mr. Hearst's regular corps  of men editors.

BOOKS.  , \Ve mentioned .in a recent .issue, that  "My Lady Rotha," by Stanley W.eymau  (Longman's Colonial, and Indian Library) had, by ,the : enterprise of our  townsman Mr. Gilbert Stanley, been put  into the hands of the people of Nelson  within a month,of.its.being published in  London. The reviews' which the book  has received in the high places of literature give it the first rank among Wey-  man's works, which. themselves are"  coupled with books like Conan Doyle's  "White Company"..'and are even compared with Scott's immortal "Quentin  ' Durward." To ,onr .mind; "My Lady  Rotha" does not equal" "A Gentleman ot  France" or "Under the Red Robe." But  it falls*short,of.theni by only one of the  most*delicate stag^by which Art may  rjetrieasuied. Of all of Stanley Wey-  man's books it may be said that they are  genre * works' They bring before the  mind an accurate picture of the times of  which they tell. The armies are not all  plumed gallants, tlie flower- of chivalry  riding richly caparisoned horses. Wey-  man describes his armies as they probably wer������\ composed of rough, unkempt,  brutal soldiery, badly armed, scarcely  uniformed and in manners little better  tlian the rough hordes of Chinese who  today   are    marching   against   Japan.  -. AVhen. reading Weyman's pages oue  seems to see and feel all. the slovenly dis-  . comfort of 250 years ago. As pictures  of the times they, are niasterpeices. As  stories thev are full of the, intensest,.interest. There is not a word tco much or  too little, and the words themselves are  short and English. In all of these respects "My Lady Rotha' campares.iavor-  ablywith its _o������:egoers,..buts:.its hero,  Mart in - Schwartz, f the steward. ot t he  Countess of Heritzburgh, the teller of  the tale, is a weak fool... He. does...not  know his own mind for two minutes together and when he does make-.ir up,  makes it up the.wrong way. He. endangers his life to accomplish purposes for  which the simplest and surest means are  at band/in short he is such a fool thai-  he., does not appear to know enough to  "get in out of the rain."  The time of the story is the date ofthe  great Thirty Years War, when Gusl-avus  Adolphus carried his  victorious armies  ���������'.   across Europe,  aud although the scene ,  of the story is. laid in. that part ot Ger-,  iiianv where most of the fighting took,.  place and the-book U full ot  "huot and .  s-iddle"   flashing   sabres   and   jingling :  bridles we are  not  bored with History.  To the reader, however, who, is acquainted with tlie story  of  that stormy  time  the book will come like a series oi phoio-  graphs of the principal events taken on  thP^bot and he who is not acquainted  iixiTl wffiread the book with none the  less .uteres*.  BIMETALLIC LEAGUE.  St Louis, Mo., Nov. 28.���������At to-day's session of the Bimetallic League the ffollowing  preamble was adopted; ,���������;..���������������������������   .   >���������  \ -  "Whereas, it is an undisputed fact that  the monetary. revolution inaugurated in  1873 by .changing the money standard from  gold and silver to gold alone has resulted,  iii twenty year's, in doubling the value of  mouey and reducing the general level of  "process 5 per cent, therefore this conference  calls upon the advocates of monetary reform everywhere to make monetary reform  the paramount issue, aud to vote for no.  candidate who is not in favor of the free  coinage of both gold and silver at the ratio  of 16 to 1, as it,existed,in this country  from the foundation of- the government,  and for indefinite ages throughout the  civilized-worldT-until-1873-.-Americans must  act. for Ameiica, independently, of what  other nations may do, or may not do; and  to this, end we urge the organization of silver leagues .throughout the entire country,  the members.of which shall pledge-themselves to do all in their power to carry out  these principles, and that the mining and  agricultural states unite in close compact,  and subordinating all other issn and all  party considerations to this on purpose,  work together io secure this all important  reform.
