Array VOL. 6.���������NO  \f6  SANDON, B. 0., SATURDAY, APfilL 25,   1903;  $2.00 PEE YEAR  wiiifiiiji  Breezy Happenings Around The  Leading Property of the  ���������   Silvery Slocan.  The force around the mill and zinc  plant is now over 30 and at the mine  about 50 men are employed, making a  total of about SO men all told, or nearly  as many as are employed just now by  all the other mines around town combined.  Steam being discarded, the concentrator is now running full capacity by  water power. The milling machinery  has been greatly remodelled' by Foreman Little during-, the past winter to  save all the zinc and the result now is  " more than up to expectations. Prac-  lically all the zinc is saved with no additional expense or tax on the  machinery. Tha product turned is almost entirety zinc ore. The per centage  it contains of silver and lead being very  low, while the amount of white iron,  which is impossible to wash off without  taking other values with it, has been  greatly reduced. When the zinc is put  through the roasting and magnetising  process, as it will shortly, the high portage of from CO to 70 per cent, to the ton  of pure zinc will be attained.  When rhe Payne companj* purchased  the mill its capacity was 120 tons, per  day of 24 hours. Under the improvements made by Manager Garde and  ; JB. P. Little its capacity has been more  than doubled. The mill empties the  large ore bin as fast as its is filled. An  idea of what can be run' may be conceived when a few days ago 77 tram cars  of ore, or a total of about 235 tons were  milled in 19^4 hours.  Another tram men was put on last  Sunday at the mine, The tram is now  running day and night, and is taxed to  its utmost to keep the concentrator in  supply.  The ore milled at present is taken  from the workings of No. S funnel, near  the recent great strike, and is carried  a way, as fast as it is mined. The,dumps  will be resumed again shortly.  The company have on exhibition in  its office a number fine samples of tha  concentrates now being made by the  mill. They include every compartment  from tho "bull" to the fine jigs. Every  size from hens' egj-s to almost powder.  Samples of the zinc exhibited areas  clean as can be secured by milling, the  lead and silver it contains being almost  nil, and the percentage of "spathic" or  white iron being surprisingly small.  The samples speak of themselves for the  success of the recent experiments.  Improvements are going on around  the various'buildings of the company at  the Siding. A lawn is being,made in I  front of the office, and a terrace of steps  and other conveniences are being built  around the residence of Foreman Little  andjtlie up-to-date Assay office.  Zinc shipments were curtailed1'for  some weeks and the ore sacked and piled  up in and around the basement. Several hundred tons were accumulated  and ail available space was bk  make room the bulk was .disposed of to  tho Canadian Smelting Works at Trail.  A car or two have,been shipped by the  C. P. R. every day this week, hut the  zinc is still pouring of the spouts at the  concentrator. The Trail company have  purchased the ore ou'tiight. On reach-  tho smelter its is put through the roasting and magnetizing process; thoroughly cleaned and shipped to Iola, Kansas,  for-market.  Work on the zinc, plant is forging  ahead. A number of carpenters are  building and men filling up around the  j cribwork. The necessary machinery is  now on the way and will arrive when  the construction is advanced far enough'  to allow it to be placed in position.  When finished the Payne Consolidated  Mining Company, limited, will possess  the most complete and economical milling plant to be found in the province.  Joe Streit, foreman at the mine, who  was injured by a blast last week, was  not hurt near as bad as reported, in fact  his accident only caused a few bruises.  He had a close call and miraculous escape, which.he will not soon forget. Mr.  Streit did not considered his injuries  bad enough to go the hospital and decided to stay at the mine. With a few  days rest he was out again and superintending the work in tunnel and stope as  if nothing happened.  ri'ri!,u.iv  Resent The Refusal of the Government to Protect the  Lead Industry.  Tax Sale Cancelled.  E, M. Sandilands, mining broker, has  been corresponding with A. Lucas, of  Kaslo, commissioner, in regard to the  cancelling of the advertised sale of  mineral claims for taxes in the Slocan.  The government has cancelled the sale  of the Rossland and Trail districts, and  E. M. grasped the opportunity to secure  the same concession for this district.  He received word on Tuesday from Mr.  Lucas that he had been instructed by  the government that.'the Slocan sale  wa������ cancelled also and the delinquents  may feel easy. In this connection we  may say that John Houston, the member f"r Nelson, has a bill now before the  local legislature, which if it passes provides that the sale of mineral claims for  taxes shall not take place until six  months after notice has been given.

Nelson took the initititive in  the matter. Mayor Kose called a mass  meeting of citizens last Saturday, which  was largely and enthusiastically attend-  ed; resulting in the drafting of a strong  condemnatory resolution against the  action of the government in not  acceding to this country's request.

The Mayor in opening the evening's  proceeings Btated the meeting was called  to resent the action of the Dominion  government in regard to the lead tariff  and he wanted to know the sentiment  of the people present as to how they  should receive the decision of the government in the matter.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, APRIL 2o, 1003.  The Dominion  government bus been  strongly censured by almost the entire  province tlie past week for  refusing the  request of the silver-lead  producers of  raising the  tariff.   The government is  by principal opposed  to   higher   tariff  changes,  and   for   the this reason the  province of British Columbia ie   to suf-  ter.   It seems strange that although the  Minister of Finance could   not  see .his  way clear to remedy tlie silver-lead industry, which  is  in  such  a deplorable  condition,   but  could   grant   remedial  . legislation to the beet sugar industry of  Eastern Canada.   The  manufacture of  sugar from beetroot  is   only  in   its infancy and is inaigiiificent in comparison  with   the  silver-lead   industry of  tlie  "Koolenays, but the   Dominion  cabinet  raised   tho duty on  sugar coming into  Canada to protect the Ontario industry  from the   cheap product   of   Germany.  The government has raised the tariff on  sugar to protect one industry, why could  it not do solo   benefit   another?   This  is the bitter pill British Columbians are  asked to swallow, but it will   not   take  the   dose   without a  vigorous   protest.  The fact is this province has been treated with contempt by the governing authorities at Ottawa too lonsr, it is about  time the   populace   took  a determined  stand to have its lawful rights properly  recognized at the capital.   The time was  never more opportune; than   at present.  The unanimous request of the province  for a change in the lead tariff to piolect  the country's most  promising industry  from   annihilation   is  totally ignored,  while   an   insignificant  one is deemed  worth   of   favor.     If   be   government  imagine., it can   ignore with   impunity  the great necessities of this province in  the way of legislation, it will   be  badly  deceived.   British Columbia has   been  spurned   by   eastern   politicians    long  enough.   A worm will turn in the end,  and it is high time we   took a   turn   to  have our   rights   recognized.   Nothing  will   be  gained  by submission, that is  apparent; then let us   see what  can be  done by agitation.  land grant went to that company. The  disputed territorv has been prominent  before the public for some. A number  of prospectors and others have staked  valuable timber lands and mineral and  oil claims in this section, some of which  are crown granted, and the C. P. R.  have-taken action to deprive the locators of their holdings--, claiming they  revert to tho company by right of charter. The question was brought up in  the House and the debate on the issue  elici'ted the fact that lhe land was not  really gri.nt.ed, but was oOered in exchange for another section of territory  granted elsewhere, but the Iran fer was  never completed. On Monday the government introduced a motion to rescind  the transfer and every member in the  House s*oted with the government. The  result is a severe blow to tlie C..P. R.,  but is hailed w ilh .satisfaction by the  entire country, and the locator of lands  in lCafit Kootenay retain their holdings  to the i.hargrin of the big railway.  Mr. Fielding on introducing the estimates claimed to have the largest surplus for years. He might have acknowledged the taxation of the country  is al.-o the largest for years. If Mr.  Fielding wants to make a surplu* in  reality, and not imaginary, he should  grant the taiiff requisition of the silver-  lead in lustry and give British Columbia  affairs a little   consideration   at  least.

Then, and not till then, will the people  of the west have much confidence in his  ability to produce the surplusessooften  and so loudly heralded by the Minister  of Finance himself.

The damage is being rapidly repaired and the  yacht will be ready for another trial.  in about three weeks. Sir,Thomas  would not feel the loss to thc bout or  .himself were it not for the drowning of  seaman Collier.. The deceased had been  on the three Lipton challengers and was  highly thought of.  Contrast the action of the Liberal government in its treatment of the lead  industry and the statement of the Conservative leader on the same and note  the difference between the politician  and the statesman. In replying to the  budget speech of Mr. Fielding, the. leader of the Opposition, Mr. 11. L. .Borden,  referred to the leading industry 01 this  province in tho following manner:'''! ho  lead mines of British Columbia, crushed by the combined efforts of an Ameii-  can combine, an x\mencaii prohibitive  tariff, and a non-protective Canadian  tariff, were in a condition of stagnation ;  the best mining region in the world was  practically paralyzed at the present time  for lack of protection." In the. face of  this grave condition of affairs the Liberal premier will allow this industry to  become almost extinct for the sake of  defunct parly principles. Aud such men  rule in this fair Canada of ours! .  The speedy Shamrock came to grief  last Saturday. While on a trial spin off  Weyinounth and rounding a headland,  a suddeli, squall struck the challenger  and completely dismantled her. Thc  accident occurred so suddenly that the  crew were powerless-'. One sailor was  swept over the deck and drowned. Sir  Thomas and a number of friends who  were on the yacht at the time were  knocked down a hatchway, but none  seriously hurt. How-they .escaped'is a  miracle. The squall broke the mast,  which carried the rigging with it and  went by the board, leaving the challenger   almost   a   complete   wreck  James Cronin, manager of the big  St. Eugene, is bitter in his denouncia-  tion of the Dominion government 'and  eastern Canadians, whom be says are  politicians only. He states decidedly  that the min������ will not start, up, and ho  ha1, gone on a trip to California. We  are afraid that the majority of the Slocan producers share the same opinion as  Mr. Cronin, and will act likewise as to  opening up the mines. In that event  unlepst.he government grants speedy  relief, the rich silver-lead districts are  doomed in spite of their wealth.  Mr. Fielding states as the reason for  not granting the change in the lead  tariff is that the cast is so prosperous,  it would be impossible to educate the  people to the need of tariff reform. Be-  the east is prosperous on account of its  fostered and protected industiei,, the  west is to treated with disdain and has  to sutler.

"At last the Ophir of Solomon has  been found," remarks the Engineering  and Mining Journal. "Every ancient  digging in the country tributary to the  Indian ocean or Red Sea has at different  times been put forward as a claimaut  for the honor. The old trenches in Mysore, which were the incentive to the  prospecting that made the Kolar gold  field; the relics found among the ruined  cities of Zimbabwe in Mashonaland, so  graphically described by the late Mr. J.  Theodore Bent; the prehistoric remains  encountered in the Nubian mountains,  between the Nile and the Red Sea, by  Mr. Charles J. Alford, have each in  turn been accredited with the source of  wealth of the great Hebrew king. To  these precise localities there have been  added the more vaguo suggestions of  other countries and places, from the  highlands of Abyssinia to the mountains of the moon, until the multiplicity  of applicants for the honor have postponed the decision to a later day.  "That day, according to Dr. Carl  Peters, has come. In the Zambesi region there is a mountain named Fura,  a name which the Portuguese adopted  from Arabian traders. The latter said  it was a corruption of the Hebrew word'  Ophir.      Moreover  Carthaginians, is a modification of Afur  or Aufur���������thus  from   Ophir,   through  Atir, AfeiyAfrious, was Africa evolved.  A pretty bit of   philological  evolution,  butuntrustworthy in its very nature, as  similar   deductions-hare  often, been  found.   However, Dr. Peters ,,was well  aware of the danger in relying, upon   a i  philological basis;   he went much further���������ho went co the Zambesi. Between  that great river and  the   babi,   in   the  modern   Rhodesia,   there   are ' many  thousand old mines, 240 of,which afford  the beginnings of undertakings now in  course of actual exploitation.     The extensive series of old workings  reaches  from north of the .Zambesi to the Mur-  chison range in theTransvaal.   Messrs.  Hall and Neal, who also have written a  book abuut it, estimate that   the area  covered is 740,000 square mileB. Within  this area thei e are ruins of entire cities,  fortresses and temples, bearing  plentiful evidence of the ancient worship  of  Baal-Ashera ard the civilisation which  characterized the Himylarites of southern Arabia.  "The discussion of this fascinating  problem presents three features of particular interest; in the first place, all  the old legends impute thegold of Ophir  to Arabia, where gold in quantity has  not been found, the idea of rich resources having grown from the fact that the  gold of the ancient world passed through  the hands of the Arabians, who were  the great traders and pirateu of antiquity, and of a much later historic period alt-o. The 'gold of Arabia,' therefore, obviously belongs to the category  of the Greek kalends. Secondly, the  African negro, as we know him and find  him, never could have done this work  Have under the compulsion of a higher  race. Moreover, if we accept litterally  the bibical statistics the output.of the  Ophir must have been colossal. In First  Chronicles we read that King. Day id con-  tritributed to the building of the temple  no less than '3000 talents of cold, of  Ophir.' A talent being 114 pounds  Troy, these three thousands would be  worth ovei $80,000,000 of our money,  These must have been 'powerful' dig-  ' gings from which such a tribute could  come to a Hebrew monarch. , No such  scanty gophering as has been seen in  Nubia will explain the wealth of the  Semitic kings nor that of the Ptolemies,  all of ���������whom obtained great stores of  gold from an unknown El Dorado.  "It appears likely that Solomon's  treasure vaults have been uncovered.  It is still a fascinating subject of conjecture how the ore was treated and  shipped from the interior to the Red  Sea, although the methods of the Arab  traders serve as a connecting link between the transport systems of widely  separated periods."

John Docksteader, of Nelson, was in  tlie city Tuesday rustling insurance  business.  Kaslo has found the basketball game  too mild a form of recreation and will  shortly organize a lacropse club.  Thos. Brown left Wednesday morning  for Phoenix where he- will open* up .a  gent's furnishing establishment.  The West Kootenay District meeting  of the Methodist church will be held in  Grand Forks on May 5th and Gth.  Wm. Murray atone time employed as  a cook in various mines around Sandon  died in Spokane Tuefday uf pneumonia.  About thirty, including both sexes  will take part in the rival concert to be  held in the Miners' hall on Tuesday  April 28th.  Geo. McDonald and L, Melnnes spent  a few days fishing,in New Denver this  week. The fish were scarce, but the  yarns are plentiful.  Another fire like last Tuesday's and  New Denver will be outclassed by Rosebery. It is little wonder Lowery is  moving to Vancouver,  The Now Denver Knights of Pythias  lost everything in Tuesday's blaze. We  understand the lodge intends to build a  hall of their own before long.  The Misses McKinnon, milliners, invite the ladies of Sandon and vicinity to  their grand millinery opening on Friday, May 1st, and following days.  Owing to a slight misunderstanding  of dates there was no council meeting  this week. However, tho board have  all business well in hand and there is  nothing very pressing.  The report has been resurrected again  that Carl Hand will visit the Slocan the  first part of next month when he will  open up tlie Galena Farm.  '���������' The Hums repairs were finished Monday, and il is now thought to be  substantial enough to ofier resistance  to any volume of water that may come  with the spring thaw.  The ladies and gentlemen are busy  practicing every night this week for the  rival concert to be given in the Miners'  ha'l Tuesday April 28th; Many surprises are in store forthe public.  R. B. McCammon, of Grand Forks,  came in town Saturday evening for a  short visit. He has severed hia connection with the C.P.R. and left Wednesday  for California, to enter the employ of  the Southern Pacific.  Six men were put to work at the  American Boy this week to get things in  shape around the mine preparatory to  starting up. The number will be increased as soon as the workings permit,  until the usual force is employed.  Mr?. Geo. Bobbins returned from  Spokane Tuesday. She has been under  treatment by an eye specialist for some  time and her sight is greatly improved.  Her sister, Miss Jack, who accompanied  her to that city, will return shortly.  A box car jumped the track on the  Ivanhoe trestle Thursday eveningas the  G. P. R. engine with two empty freight  carF was returning to Three Forks. The  spot is a bad one for a jump to occur,  but fortunately no damage was done.  Messrs. Downie, Crease and Bain-  bridge, officials of the Nelson division of  the C. P. R., visited Sandon with their  private car Jast Saturday. They were  on a tour of inspection along the line  and left by special the following day.  The condition of the C.P.R. track  between Sandon and Rosebery is in  a very deplorable condition, and should  receive more attention than it is at the  present time receiving. Cars leaving  the track is almost a daily occurrence."  The removal of Thos. Brown to Phoenix leaves a vacancy in.tha city council  and'the question naturally rises, who  will take his place ? With the present  council no difficulty should be experienced, but on account of the few  that can qua.ify it is a eas-eof who's  who.  Corned Beef, Pickled Ox Tongue and Salt Pork a specialty.
