There is said to be some placer gold  atCdoper creek, three miles from Lardo.  Tlie, Gran by smelter has four furnaces  going now and can handle 1,500 tons of  ore daily.  The sale of work, supper, Ac, in the  .Methodist church on Monday realised  about $120.  It is reported Joe]Martin says lie will  vote against Dunsmuir after the redistribution measure is passed.  The C. P. R. is going to build without  delay a branch from Midway to Spences  Bridge.  A female cook  wants a  position in a  mine or   large   restaurant or  boarding  house. Particulars at the Denver House.  Miss Dalby and Miss English returned  to Kaslo on Monday, and   proceeded  to I for  Friday   evening,    April   25th.

Hunter and Miss Agnes  Hansen were united in marriage t\t  Kaslo on Wednesday. Tbe bride is  well known here.  Sandon, Nelson and Slocan have  organised baseball teams, and other  towns around will follow suit. A league  for the Kootenays will likely be formed  later on.  Gus ITennobcrg left Thursday morning for Spokane on si, visit, while away  he will no doubt, probe into the  mysteries of the Thunder Mountain  district.  .Miss Lou Fingland. of Napanee, Out.,  sister of A. H. Fingland, superintendent  of the Monitor mine, is visiting 'Mrs.  dints-burger,and will spend the summer  in the Slocan.  The Independent Order of Odd fellows  are advertising a grand anniversary ball  Strike at the Monitor.  next day. ,  G. B. Knowles is back from Ashnola  for a few weeks. He says tlnjre are two  or three hotels going up, and everything  seems' prosperous.  Mr. G. W. ���������Grimmett ms the- happy  possessor of a brand new daughter. In  a few years the name Grimmett will be  a power to reckon with in this city.  Grand Forks has five candidates in  the field for the next provincial elections. If Joe does as he says he will,  there will be a dissolu'ion this month.  f, A small landslide came down about  lo feet back of station agent Huston's  house on Wednesday night, and knocked  bis kitchen into the proverbial cocked  hat. Huston is now anxiously enquiring the way to be saved.  Shady Giegcrieh says he went to  Kaslo last Sunday and 'brought'up two  grips filled with sunshine with him.  This he set out on the side hill on his  return. It took root, grew, and is the  parent of all the fine weather we have  had ever since.  "Annie Rooney," at one time a character in this place, has received , a half  column notice in the  Victoria Colonist  one. Every effort will be made to inake  ���������this affair a success.  Sau Francisco capitalists have bonded  Mr. .I. C. Ryan's interest in property  and water power which he holds in  the Similkameen district for $20,000.  The purchasers will operate water  power largely for; tobacco plantations,  besides 'other purposes.  Is itnotahout timethatthe Bluestreak  chap bad the school accounts of last  year audited, as he said they would be,  just to see how much money.Cliffe really  stole while he was secretary-treasurer.  The public would like to know the  amount of that peculation.  "If it is of any concern to tbe ousted  school trustees we may tell them all the  questions submitted by Mr." Wilson, inspector, to Mr. Lyons, city clerk, at tlie  investigation that led to. the avoidance  of the election, were drawn up by Mr.  Cliffe and placed in Mr. Wilson's hands  before the investigation commenced.  ��������� Manitoba, on Wednesday, decided  liquor licensing is not to be discontinued.  The. referendum was submitted that  day, ami lhe bill decided that to-stop  liquor  trallic   02  per cent  of  the vote  The Monitor at Three Forks was always regarded as a good mine. It paid  dividends years ago ; it is paying them  well under the present management  now, and it is likely to do much better  in the future. On Sunday last the  biggest strike ever made on the property, and one of the best in the camp,  was reported. It was made in No. 4  tunnel, the lowest driven. At this depth  a solid body of throe ie'et of clean ore  was encountered, which gives evidence  1 of even greater width .at further depth.  From this tunnel to No. 3 above, a distance of '1.20 feet or more an upraise has  been made all the way in an ore body  varying from 10 inches to the width reported. This valnablcdiscovery ensures  steady shipment for the Monitor for a  long time, and speaks well for the manager's observation and ability.  Around the Payne.  Mr. Garde is getting everything into  excellent shape at the Payne, as well  at the new concentrator as at the mine.  A week ago today lie received the dynamo and, electric appliances at the mill  from Peterboro, Ont., and a ponderous  piece of machinery it was, if we judge  from tbe way the draymen had to lift  in transferring it from one railway  to the other. The work of installation  is going on now, and when completed  thft machinery will be run by water  power, there being several streams hard  by that can be harnessed for power purposes if ecfsary. The machinery will  work the drills in the tunnels, furnish  light for all the workings, the mill,  offices, boarding house, &c. This, of  course, will considerably reduce the old  time expenses, and to an extent enable  the mine to compete with the low price  of the minerals produced���������silver and  lead.  , A New Company.  A. W. Wright, well known in mining  circles here, who has spent some months  past in Indiana, was in the city last  week again on bis way to Aspengrove in  the Similkameen country. While away  he formed  a company who are taking  overseveral copper properties at Aspen- j Cody7the Aliee"and Zuni cl"  , oasts'otild be   vea.    A   majorilv  went  lor one of her escapades.'

Mr. Harris spent some days making a  tour of the Boundary country lately,  and he returns with the conviction Sandon and surroundings are as prosperous  as anything he saw while away. There  is a general quietness pervading the  whole country and we have no more  than our share of it.  Alderman Stein has sold out the bakery and grocery business he conducted  here for about six years to Mr. Patter-  Bon, late cook at the Slocan Star, and  will leave for Portland, Oregon', where  lie has another business, in about ten  days. One by one tho old timers go.  Mr. Patterson has a fair knowledge of  the business, is careful, and will doubt  less make a success of his undertaking.  ay, however,   the cities and  towns voting nay.

Mr. Purdy, who has had  charge of the Presbyterian congregation  here for the last three months, preached  a very able farewell sermon on Sunday  and left on Wednesday morning for  Winnipeg, where he will attend college  for some time. Mr. Purdy isa pleasing,,  argumentative speaker, very s-ocial in  bis make up, and practical in all his  teaching. He has the best wishes of  all the townspeople in his future fields!  of labor. I  grove and are going to work them. '  Among other things they will build a  smelter. These properties are some 30  miles from Princeton on the proposed  branch of the C. P. R. '1 hey are  ties, four in number, havo been worked  for some months, aud now have 500  tons of ore on the dumps, assaving $25 a  ton. The country around is a ranching  district and well calculated for fruit  growing, with plenty timber, water and  coal around in all directions, and plenty  of fluxes hard bv. They will adopt the  Vulcan smelter system, if it proves  satisfactory under tests.  Mr. Wright says if conditions favor  his company, they will work the Ajax  and Palmita properties, the coming  summer.  Mines and Mining.  Bar silver is 53% in New York.  On the 31st the Rambler-Cariboo paid  its regular dividend.  The Athabasca mine will be controlled  by Toronto parties hereafter.  The shipments from Three Forks for  tbe month of March were Monitor 115  tons and the Queen Bess 61.  Ore shipments from Whitewater for  the month of March were : Whitewater  G22)i.' tons and Wellington 16.  Twomey, of Kaslo, has bought a half  interest in the Rio of McGuigan. Development work will go on at once.  The concentrator at the Rambler will  be in operation in about two weeks time  when the water supply will be greatly  increased by the spring thaws.   .  The Urban Mining ct Milling Company are applying for water rights on  Falls creek near the Payne, The application states its uses are for mining and  smelting purposes, and will be conveyed by flume and pipe.  The Reco mine made its regular spring  close down this week, letting out all but  seven or eight men. They are working  a rich carbonates vein now, and in it  there is too much loss of silver in the  wet workings to allow operations. In a  few weeks work will be resumed.  The Last Chance let ont all of its men  but six or seven on Monday. This,  however, is not a permanent drop; it is  occasioned by the water in the workings. It is believed that in a month or  so the workings will be sufficiently dry  again to allow the full staff to be taken  on. In other respects there is nothing  new to report at this property.  The Mountain Con, which went  through a checkered career within tin-  last two years,is to.beworked again this1  summer by the original owner, J. A.  Whittier, who has formed a company  for the purpose. This is the property  tbat was bonded some two years ago by  Mr. Warner, and subsequently bonded  by him to an English .company.  The Silver Crown Mining & Milling  Company held their annual meeting in  Spokane last week, when arrangements  were completed to begin extensive development work on their property near  aims. The  claims have been worked for some time  past and have shown up some rich ore.  They are located near the Carbonates.  No. 2, on which a rich strike has recently been made. Ore from the ledge en-  countered averages about 200 ounces in  silver and 70 per cent lead.  '^i  Sandon Ore Shipments.

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, Ai-kil 5,  1902.  Tlie Mining Review.  SATURDAY,  APRIL  5,  1902.  THE MINING SITUATION.  The more one studies the situation of  the mining industry in this country,  the more necessity there appears for  united action of a determined character,  by those who have interests in the  country.  On taking up the Public Accounts  of the province for the year ending the  30th of June last, we find the total  receipts   of   the    province    from     all  sources to be  !fl.o0r,,')20  Of this Federal grants total      2-12,(589  Leaving raised by the province$l .3(33,231  Of this.ininingcohtributedas follows:  Free miners' certificates $  03,510  General mining receipts    154,270  Mineral tax     05,4S3  Royalty on coal     S5,4S3  Bureau of Mines '..       1,058  In timber dues, &c, say.:      50,000  SOUND AS  A  DOLLAR  That is thc result of a course  of treatment with Scott's Emulsion. We have special reference to persons with weak  lungs and sensitive throats.  Scott's Emulsion docs some  thinsrs better than others. This  is one of them. It has a peculiar action on the throat and  lungs which gives them  strength and makes them tough.  That's how Scott's Emulsion  drives out coughs, colds and  bronchitis. It keeps them out,  too.  We'll send you a little to try, if you like.  .-SCOTT   &   BOWNE,       Chemists.  Toronto.  Total  $480,404  Or considerably over the one-third of  the entire, local revenue. We find on  further investigation the whole of the  personal property of the country pays a  revenue of but    $02,422  ��������� Realty, tax /      121,707  Income tax.... ���������       28,370  $2-12,505  The few miners and   mining men of  the country pay $480,404, while the rest  of the population pay in about half that  amount.      Tlie    remaining   items    of  revenue may not be considered here for  the reason the miners and mining men  pay their share of these also.    We deal  with but the question of taxation in the  general meaning of the term.    Now,  as  we  pointed out  last week,  while   the  fisheries might go on to a  fair extent  whether the mines of the country are  worked oi not, but for home consumption, there could be but little lumbering',  except from the coast points, because of  freights/and comparatively speaking no  agriculture   anywhere.     The development of the two latter industries  then  depends wholly on the development  of  mining, as does the growth of the entire  country,   commercially,   educationally  and in   all other   tangible respects.    It,  appears to us every man in the country  who aims at representing a constituency  in the local parliament, and every man  intelligent enough  to cast a  ballot, in  election!, should see this also.   In   this  connection we may say, it is well known  by all that mines  are not found  in  a  shipping condition���������they all appear in  prospects calling for imported capital lo  work them.   Capitalists appealed to in  other countries to lend money to develop  these mines and  advance tbe agricnl- j  tural  and lumbering   industries,    the  commercial and  educational  prospects  of the country, see the  few  mines  now  in existence,  and  the  industry but   in  its   infancy,   paying   one-third   of the  taxes of the country, a large number of  the members of the House devising  means to saddle them wii'h additional  burdens, aiid lhrce-qiiii'-iers of the  representatives of i lie country listening  to every representation made by the  industrial elements, thai.do not pay one-  twentieth pari c f the taxes, as to their  special interests even tofurthercrippling  mining operations- by disgusting the  capitalists appealed to for further .aid.  There is no gainsaying'it, this' is the  situation pruned of its artificial varnish.  We again ask the question, are the/men  who hold substantial,interests in the)  country going lo fold 'their bands and  Which the working man has fought for  and succeeded in obtaining is something  the wife has no share in. Her day begins before his and ends long after it,  as a rule, and many a night her rest is  broken by the baby's  fretf illness. The  healthiest w oman  must wear out under  such a strain. What  can be expected then  of those women  who are weakened by womanly diseases?  Women  ^cafe^g''- ���������  fraraifi  y  who   are        weak,  worn-out  and run-down will find new  life and new strength in the  use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite  Prescription. It establishes  regularity, dries weakening  drains, heals inflammation  and ulceration, and cures  female weakness. It makes  weak women strong and  sick women well.  Sick people are invited to  consult Dr. Pierce, by letter,  free. All correspondence ia  held as strictly private and  sacredly confidential. Address Dr. R. V.  Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.  "I suffered with female weakness about eight  years���������tried several doctors but derived no bene-,  fit until I began using Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. John Creen, of Danville,  Uoyle Co., Ky. "This medicine Was recommended to me by other patients. I have taken  six bottles and I feel like another person."  The dealer whoiofFers a substitute for  "Favorite Prescription," is only seeking  to make the little more profit paid on  the sale of less meritorious medicines.  His profit is your loss. Refuse all substitutes.  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets should be  used with " Favorite Prescription ".whenever a laxative is required.  allow tilings  lo con lino this way?   \a\  venal section of lho press is   willing   to  wink at this, order of  things because.il  in  certain quarters stimulates patronage; a section of the commercial community acquiesces' because it paliates  prejudice,and apparently in a temporary  \.av developes bushiest'*,   but it ends in  keeping our mineral resources sealed in  tbe bowels of the earth, the other great,  industries of the country undeveloped,  present, population   comparatively  idle  or unprotitably employed, and the labor  elements  themselves   either living   ou  what they have earned  in "the  pastor  in comparative destitution.   These are  tbe naked facts,  and  a glance over the  situation in  the country  fully verifies  them. ' It ie quite true- tbat the low price  of several of our minerals is put, forward  as the cause  ol   our   comparative   in-  j activity.   It is one cause, of course! but  I it is only  one,   and   the one we cannot,  , change.   There are, however, the otho s  j wecan change, and what are, we doing  , to charge  them?   There are two ways  to cure the evil.   Let  those who  have  interests   in   Hie country  in elections  support only candidates who have the  material prosperity  of the country before them,  as their first consideration,,  or restrict the franchise.   If candidates'  cannot   be  got,   who   refuse Io  inaki  foreign interests and  franchise appeals-  their   first   consideration,   then  cut of!  thc cause of   their  besetting sins.   If  representatives will be first.' influenced  by the appeals tbat hold the country ii  n condition  of'retrogression  instead o,  one of prosperity, cut off the cause o1  their neglect of duty and free them 'oi  the weight that sways them   from tin  ���������path of duty.   It appears to us  one o  these alternatives must  be adopted,   i  the country is to prosper.   A legislator!  may subject existing mines and miniii.-  interests to any  burdens they  plea.e  but they   cannot force owners to  work  them, to employ our idle  men and revive activity  in  tbe other industries,  neither can they  force outside   capital  required in thecountry inlo'investinenU  by   threats   or  coercion.-   The   laltei  must be shown by our  enactments thai  investments are safe, and   given   a  fail  chance for   return reasonable   interest  If this is not done our  other  efforts to  advance are helpless.    It appears to  us  the whole   matter   is   of  too serious a  nature  to be  longer triflled with,  and  lhat those whose interests should cause  them .to look the matter squarely in the  face should take immediate action.  COAL!  Everybody Wants  the Best Coal.  Try Lelbbridge Coal, then you will  have the best, and cheapest. This coal  will make the hoftestand brightest fires,  besides it is eariiy handled, as it is very  clean.    We have it forall kindsof grate.  ���������������$��������� Cameron.  To the Deaf.

THROTTLING.  .\s   we   mentioned    last   week,    the  Whitewater   mine   report for January  showed that   the   property   made   but  $210 profit  tbat  month,  and that was  not   profit either, as no allowance, was  made for interest on  borrowed capital.  As   a   consequence   the mine   is   closing down,  throwing  100   men   out   of  employment,  business   in   the  village  into confusion, and giving  the country  a black eye, and all because of the pettifogging that is' going on in the legislature.     Candidates  come   before   tbe  constituencies assuring a certain vote  they  will  make  the mine owners pay  them what they want,  they  will  make  the mines yield  a provincial  revenue,  and utter collapse overtakes all.   Now,  what we want to  impress on the people of tho country is this,  tbat as long  as   things   are   run   this   way   by  the  government and the politicians, so long  will tbe country remain in  this slough  of despond.    So long as the people  are  influenced by the old motives in casting  the ballots, and  our representatives are  influenced by the same feelings, so long  ���������   must the country remain in its present  condition.   The people have the cure in  their own bands, if  they .exercise it; if  they refuse,  they must bear the consequences.   Neither the miners, the mine  owners, nor the  parliament,  have any  power to advance  tbe  prices of  silver  and lead in outside markets,  and  mine  owners can   neither work their  mines  with present  capital   nor   get  outside  moans to assist them, until it is shown  there    is    evidence    money    can    be  invested with  an assurance of reasonable interest'.   The  local  mine owners  may be taken by  the throats in every  way by the men and the legislature, but  outside capital cannot be brought in by  tbe throat.   So long then as throttling  .   is king, there is no help i'or the country,  and the sooner the  people know  it the  better.  Jf then the people of tbe province are  powerless   in   the   way   of    advancing  prices, and  if many  of the  properties  cannot   pay  under  present conditions,  the man- with   half an eye can  see,  to  secure mining operations, the only cure  is diminish expenses.    We have several  times shown  tlie  Slocan  mine owners,  can get but say at present $'1.4.5 for lead  ���������while   the    American    producers   are  getting $:>.50.    Our people-have to pay  from 20 to 50 per cent more for candles,  powder, machinery and boarding house  supplies,   than  the American  miners.  These can be reduced by changes in the  Canadian tarifl'.   Our Provincial government can in tin.  meantime remove the  two per cent tax, its high recording fees  anil excessive tim ber collections.   These  will   all   materially   help.      We   have  shown   in   previous  issues tbat   by a  proper personal and realty tax, without  any unfair burden on  the people, tbe  money now collected  under the two per  cent tax can be easilyraised.   We have  s ���������-,.vii, too,  that if a form of primitive  ,��������� ., ihim nt   was given  the  RIVERSIDE  NURSERIES  FOUR MILES.EAST OF GRAND FORKS.-  20,000 FRUIT AND SHADE TREES, LILACS, ROSES, 4a  Our Stock is Home Grown and Exceptionally 'Vigorous and Healthy,  Order now, it will pay you to inspect tbe Nurseries.  V. N. Phone.No. 25.  Post Office Box 33.  Martin Burrell, Prop.  constituencies  all  the money required  for  trails,  bridges, etc.,  could   be got  locally, equitably, without any drain on  the Provincial treasury.   But there is  still another  way.    In   all of   Canada  there is more or less prosperity of every  description   he'd   by    speculators    for  speculative  purposes,    lying   dormant  until  the  more industrious'holders of  contiguous   properties    improve   their  holdings and bring the dormant properties into value.    In cities:  the speculation is in city lots, in the other  provinces in tl.e rural  districts,  tlie  dormant  properties are in farm lands, and in this  country, it is in crown-granted  mineral  properties.     '1 be   speculators   buy   up  the prospects, get them  crown  granted  and   leave  them   lie   profitless  to the  country in every  form  until  the more  industrious holder,brings his  property  into  value  by --working  it.    When the!  industrious man, after sinking his own 1  and borrowed money, meets a strike, up  goes tbe value of the doi.mnnt property  that has paid no government tax, and ���������  the mine owner sells at a  round  figure.  Now, all this can be cuied by placing an  acreage tax on crown-gran ted property  instead of a special  two per cent tax on  the man who produces an output.    YVilh  the law on these lines, without coercion  or force in any direction,   self-interest  would force  the  owners of  all   crown  granted properties eit.ln.ir to work  their  holdings   or  sell   to   men  who   would  work them.    Why  don't some/nf   our  bass wood representatives in the House  try legislation'on  these'lines,  h-sliad  of lying awake nights to  <icvi.se  m^ans  of corralling the  votes of the ignorant  or prejudiced poriion.of the community ?  In addition to an acreage tax, a compul- j  sioii to spend so much a year in   work- ?  ines, would create, labor I'mm the  start,  and  soon  bring  many   idle properties  into shipping mines.  lMnu3~  -CT3  Tl  ������ ���������  * a  0  9  9  9  9  9  9  I  ft     -  ERECT FORH AND STRAIGHT FRONT  CORSETS  Are taking tbe  place of all others.

The Bluestreak says the Superintendent of Education has declared the January trustee election is invalid  on   three
counts, and   it cites  them.    The  print
could now get in a big scoop by showing
tbo   council,   the   clerk,    tbe   trustees
elected  and   itself declared at the time
the   election   was  valid, and   that   thu
.Mining   Review alone   said   it was not.
It can make  another  point by showing
the second election  is costing  the taxpayers a sum of money because of the
ignorance of  the oflicials and thoir unwillingness  to  take   the advice of any
one but themselves.    It could -make another big score   by showing   certain   of
the aldermen are so versed   in  law they
are leaving themselves  liable to a pen-1
alty of #50 a night  for  every night they j
sit at the council, if there  is any one to
take action,    if the  Bluestreak would
come out  with   these  facts in a double
leaded article, it would   mako a stiong
point.

wore   all   in   the   dark.    No one knew
much  of  the   merits of the system proposed   to   be  introduced,  and we were
altogether in the dark as  to   lhe cost of

its  cost would   lie  a mistake    Mc then
moved   for  the  appointment of-a committee of five to secure all   the'information possible on these points,-and report
to a meeting of citizens  as soon as possible, which was  unanimously  carried,
and    the    following    committee     was
