School closed yesterday for' the Xmas  holidays of two weeks' duration.  * r  M. Nicholson, of the Bank of Commerce, here, left Thursday for the coast.  There will be service in the Catholic  church tomorrow, but not on Christmas  day, as the pastor will be Kaslo.

Crawford's rinkscored the highest number of points in the President  vs. Vice-President series of contests and  as a consequence his rink becomes possessors of the four pairs of gloves donated.  Everything is so quiet and businens so  dull that very little preparation is being  made for Xmas. Merchants acknowledge  the present season to be the dullest-in  the history of the camp.  E. M. Sandilands, agent for the Con-  federtion Life, Union and Phoenix Assurance" companies, three of' the best in  Canada, was around distributing,.their  handsome calenders ��������� to patrons' and  others on Monday.  A scientist says that "if the earth was  flattened the sea would be two miles  deep all over the world" After due  meditation a Kansas editor gives out  the following; ''If any man is caught,  flattening out the earth shoot him on  the spot, and don't be too'blamed particular what spot. There's a whole lot  of us in Kanasas that can't swim.  Albert Karr, formerly of this city, but  now of Kamloops. is on a Christmas visit  to liis brother. Mr. Karr was in poor  health for some time while here before  and was forced to leave Sandon and go  elsewhere to recuperate. Hearing of  the salubrious climate of Kamloops he  decided to go there, and tho benefits  derived from the change are marked by  his restoration to almost perfect health.  G. W. Hughes was in town this week  after a tour of the Boundary. He leaves  in a few days for Ottawa, as a member  of the silver-lead- miners delegation, to  lay the situation.of the mining industry  before the Dominion Cabinet. Af'er  the conclusion of business on the part of  the delegation, Mr. Hughes will journey  to Baltimore, Maryland, and spend the  winter at his old home near that city.  He will return to Saudpn some time in  the spring.  Bornal Bewley is now night-shift boss  at the Payne mill.  Rev. S. J. Thompson who was in town  at the Methodist church anniversary,  returned to Cranbrook on Tuesday.  The privy council have decided that  naturalised Japs or Chinese cannot vote.  The case has been carried through all  the courts and this decision is final.  Aa Xmas will have come and gone before another i>6ue of this paper, The  Review wishes all its readers A Merry  Xmas and compliments of the season.  Midnight Mase will be held in Kaslo  on Christmas night, instead of Sandon.  Rev. Father Cote will ofticate and deliver a timely discourse suitable to the  occasion.  Zine Rata Too Low.  C. V. Cliffe left yesterday morning  for Sault Ste Marie. He has been in  poor health for some time, and when  he reaches his destination it is tbe intention of liis'.father to place him in a  sanitarium for medical treatment.  Don't fail to attend the' Christmas  Tree in the Miners'Union hall on the  evening of the 23rd. The programme  will consist of a supper, concert and  other entertainment.

They will commence at  8 o'clock, to consist of readings, recitations, dialogues, drills, club swinging,  choruses, solos, quartettes, instniment-  als, etc. There will be a chimney, a  real Santa Clan*, 'and tree a beautifully  decorated and-laden with gift*. All are  invited to send in presents on Wednesday to be hung on the tree. At < the  close of the concert Santa Claus will  appear to distribute the good ' things.  Something br everybody. Come and  have a good time.  The anniversary dinner given by the  Methodist church on Monday night was  well patronized and thoroughly enjoyed  by all who attended. The tables were  tastefully arranged and tlie wants of all  served out plentifully bya bevyofyoung  ladies, who did all in their power to  satisfy everyone. A feature of the evening was the lecture or. "Lincoln, the)  Liberator," by  Rev. J. S. Thompson, of  It now looks as if the much talked of  zinc market will be of very little benefit  to Slocan producers until there is a rise  in price of silver and lead. The zinc  ores in this district contain a good  percentage of silver for which practically  the producers receive no value. We  were informed a few days ago by the  manager of one of the largest properties  here, and whi< li would be an extensive  shipper of zinc if the prices were anywhere reason, that it would not pay  to start up and work on zinc ores only  with the prevailing low prices of its associate minerals. He futher informs us  that his zincs output of 45 per cent, to  tlie ton carries 40 ozs.   of   silver.     The  Mining News.  The Ivanhoe concentrator started up  again this week for a- short run to prevent the ore accumulating on the dumps.  Some development work is being  carried on at the Number One mine in  the Ainsworth district, giving nine men  employment.  The Highland property is said to be,  now netting its owners a profit after  thoroughly developing the mine. It has  so far this winter shipped over 200 tons  of concentrates of a good grade.  The Kootenay MinejB Ltd. of Rossland,  are going to install a smelter of the  pyritic type to treat their ore.. It will  situated below their workings and will  latter even at the low price being equal  have connection with the mine by  an  to about $18.00 per ton, and for which  by shipping to Iola would practically  receive nothing for, aa the producer here  receives a uniform rate of from $8 to IflO  per ton for the zinc ores and its silver  contents, but if any lead is mixed with it  above five per cent, it is subject to a  penalty. t Thus it is plainly to be seen  that under present circumstances little  if any profit would be made by the producers. The Iola smelter pays a frefght  rate of $11 per ton, while in return the  Bmelter company would clear nearly  double that amount on the silver contents alone, and consequently grow fat  at the mine owners expense.  A Sensible View.  A miner writing to the Nelson News  from Slocan City, states that the miners  are as much interested in the production of silver-lead as the mine owners,  and urges they should co-operate with  the employers in securing the legislation desired. He suggests that they endorse the resolution passed at the last  meeting of the miner owners, and forward their endorsement to the govern- first of the coming year  ���������Dent with that of   the delegates.   The  aerial tramway.  The Grey Eagle leasees are already  engaged in stoping their latestrike which  lias since widened out to two inches of  300 ounce ore. They expect to ship at  least one car of this grade of ore this  winter.  The presence of platinum in the gold  ores in the Burnt Basin camp has been  confimed by the result of tests made on  samples of ore sent to Baker & Co. of  New Jersey, refiners of this class of  metals.  A hand plant to be used in conducting experimental tests on the Rossland  ore's to determine the amenability to  the Elmore process of concentration will  shortly be put in Rossland. If tbe process proves successful, through the tests,  a large plant will be erected.  It is stated that the Trail smelter has  reduced the charges for smelting the  gold-copper ores of the'Kootenays lo  $2.50 per ton. There are also rumors  to the effect that the shelters will also  lower their rates of treatment of the  silver-lead   ores   of. this district at the  Ciiinbrook, which was attentatively  listened to. The lecturer is a pleasing and  forcible speaker, and, hiB subject was  appropriate on account of the many  Americans in this city, who cherish the  name of Lincoln. Mr.'-. Thompson's  lecture has become quite popular, and  he has repeated it by request on more  than one occasion.  plan proposed is a good one, as it would  show harmony of action with all concerned in lead mining. His whole letter  is commendable, coming as it does from  one who has worked in other camps besides the Slocan, and points out differ-  ,ence in the steady working of the mines  of Idaho and those of British Columbia.  The former, he asserts, are protected by  a tariff while the latter are not, and says  that if something is not done soon to  remedy the matter, he like many others  will be compelled to seek employment  elsewhere. It is a good sign to see some  of the miners taking tbe right view in  the mattor, and there are many around  who share the same opinion. It is quite  true a large number are convined otherwise, and are sustained in their views by  some of tliejr so-callodlahor papers, but  the present stagnation of mining has  caused many to sift the cause for themselves, and a gradual change is coming  around.

The estimated profit? of the Le Roi  mine for November was $75,000. The  output for tho same month was 15,000  tons or a daily shipment of 500 tone.  When the improvements now under way  are in shape, to permit of handling larger  shipments the dividend-earning capacity of the mine will be substantially  enhansed.  As was expected, it is now stated the  Ramblei'rCariboo will suspend the payment of dividend for about six months.'  The concentrator has closed down for  want of water, thereby curtailing the  ore shipments, and it is not expected  to start up again beforo late in the  spring. Meanwhile the money on hand  will be utilized for deeper development  work and starting other levels lower  down the hill.  Everything is humming around the  Payne, the only mine working to any  extent in the camp, and is mining principally on zinc ores. About 70 men are  working at the mine and two shifts are  employed at the mill. The concentrator  is milling zinc extensively; sending out  a couple of cars daily, or about 145 tons  a week, besides a weekly shipment of  about 22 tons of high grade silver and .  lead concentrates.  ..'.Wi-inl THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, December 20, 1902.  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1902.  THIRD PARTIES A FAILURE.  Chris Foley, leader of the so-called  Provincial Progressive party in this province, has severed his connection with  that organization. He announced his  decision in Vancouver a few days ago  at the first of a series of socialistic lee  enccl with consumption or any  wasting disease, there is no fat  in so digestible and palatable a  form as Scott's Emulsion.  Physicians prescribe it.  We'll send you a little to tiy, if you like.  SCOTT   &   130WNE,      Chemists, Toronto  scheme to further his ambition, but  met the fate of lhe others. He was  practically forced out Dominion politics,  discaided by Manitoba���������tho base of his  dastardly operations���������and finally came  to British Columbia, the province of  politial discord, to try his hand here.  Even in our local legislature, composed  as it is of all shades of politics and no  politics at all, Martin could not get a  sufficient following to further the desire  of his heart. We hope to seethe next  election run on straight party alines, as  THE    ESQUIMO  The Esquimo eats blubber.  The lumbermen eat pork.  These people are constantly  exposed to cold and physical  strain. Experience has taught  them that fatty foods give  warmth  and  nourishment.  For those who have cold  ...      ,.���������,.,       , ,  ,.ecJ and thin bodies, or are threat-  tures delivered in  that city on behalt of!  Dr.  Melnnes,  which   were   poorly   attended.   In throwing up the leadership  Mr. Foley showed his disgust in the lark  of   interest   taken in provincial affairs,  and denounced the labor men  in scathing terms,' saying   they   would   sooner  attend cockfights and  hang around bar  rooms than   attend   political meetings.  This is only the beginning of   the   end.  If we are to have parties,  let   there   be  two, Liberal and  Conservative.    Third  parties are always a failure; they never  last and the few elected   to parliament  always go with the government, no matter what shade of   politics   to which   it  may belong.   This is borne out by  the  conduct of   Ralph  Smith, of Nanaimo,  and   Puttee,   of   Winnipeg,  who   were  elected by the Labor party to  the Dominion House of .Commons, and no sooner  took their seats when they linked themselves   with   the Laurier  government. [ the electors will then have-un   idea  oi  Experience of third   parties  iii'Canada  has exposed the fact that there are too  many unscrupulous   agitators and ambitious   heelers   in   their ranks, which  sooner or  later breed   dissension   and  final rupture.   A few   years   afo a new  party was formed in Can ad* called  the  Patrons of Industry, which  for   a time  seemed   to  carry    the    whole   of the  eastern provinces, by establishing   lodges   and   stores oi their own where the  members only could secure their goods  at a 12>2 per cent profit over cost.   This  cheap goods scheme brought many into  their ranks, who after paying their fees  for initiation and monthly dues, which  went   into   the   pockets of the leaders,  the rank and file could secure supplies  cheaper at the P. I. store and they were  happy. Picnica galore and socialgrdiier-  ings of every   description, (a small fee  for the leaders always being charged,),  were helil everywhere, and the country  flooded with   campaign   literature   and  political mountebacks.   Just befoie tho  election tlie crash came, the whole proceedings exposed by jealous heelers and  in a very short time the Patrons ceased  to exist.   Dalton McCarthy, one of the  Dominion's most brilliant men, tried to  form   a   third   party   in   the Housenf  Commons, which ended in  utter failuie  and ceased at his death.  Then Joe Mai-  tin, one of the most unscrupulous political   agitators   that  ever   cursed   this  country, thwarted   in ��������� his   ambition to  lead   and   not   be   lead, tried the same  where members of the House will stand  on the issues of the day, and which will  probably do away with the. disgraceful  scenes that characterized the last session of the legislature, which put the  recent combats of the French Chamber  of Deputies and the German Richstag  into the shade as compared with our  own mixed assembly. v  The healthy  ���������woman need not  fear the change  which conies as the  beginning of life's  autumn. It is the  woman who is worn  out, run down and  a sufferer from  womanly diseases  who naturally  dreads the change  of life. This is the  critical period of  woman's life, and  the prevalence- of  womanly diseases  makes it the duty  of every  woman         who   would   avoid  ffij$f^\ unnecessary 'suffer-.  "^"vjiviJ ing to take especial  care of herself at this time.  The ills whith vex so many women at  the change of life are entirely avoided  or cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It makes weak  women strong, and enables the weakest  to pass through this trying change with,  the tranquility of perfect health.  "I have been a very heallliy woman, nnd this  time lins been very hard with me," writes Mrs.  Maggie Morris. oC Munsoii Station, Clearfield  Co,, Pa,, Box 16. "I am come to the lime of  change of life, and I have been-sick a great deal  on" and on. When Mrs. Henimis .moved beside  me I was sick iii bed, aiid when she came to see  me and we.were talking over our sickness, Mrs.  Hemmis told me to try Dr. Tierce's Kavorite  Prescription and 'Golden Medical Discovery,'  also ' Pellets.' I got her to bring me a bottle of  each from the drug- store ancl I used tliera.  They did mc a great deal of good, and I y,oi two  more bottles of' favorite Prescription.' I never  saw such a wonderful cure. Before I commenced your remedies I was good for nothing;  was in such misery I hardly knew what to do  with myself, now I can do all my work myself  and feel well."  Dr. Pierce'9 Pleasant Pellets are easy  and pleasant to take.  TH E S EED 0F PKOI ECTJ OAT.      ���������  The Soo steel mills at'Sault Sie Mario  closed   down   last week  throwing some  SOO hands out of work. Thereason given'-  out is that they wero undersold by-Germany, whero   labor   is   cheap, even   in  the homo market.   Tlie  steel ��������� industry  is the only one in eastern   Canada that  is not fostered by a bounty or protected  by a tariff.   The closing down of the Soo  mills instantly awoke our Dominion free,  trade government Lhat something was  to lie done in the matter or the industry  would vanish.   The government immediately granted the closed  mills a contract for furnishing ihe  rails   for  sixty  miles of a railway now building in  New  Oiitiiiio and the mills will reopen in a few  days.    It is oven reported the Dominion  government will bonus the industry and  protect it by a higher tariff at. I lie next  session of the Federal parliament.  This  is only another instance  that for anjn-  dustry to '.flourish   tariff  protection  is  needed to keep out foreign competition.  The cry:is raised in some quarters that  a   protective   tariff  raises  the'price of  goods in the countries adopting it, but  in reality the difference in  price is.'very  little while the benefits accruing from  it   are   very largo  and  varied.   These  same criers never think of the amount  of employment furnished bya. protective  tariff to labor, and some of   them   have  the nerve to pose as champions of that  cause, or  take  into  consideration  the  many other  channels of   trade derived  by wages paid the laboer  lor  his hire,  who would of necessity have to seek employment  elsewhen , if   our  industries,  were forced to close   down   by the protected ones of other countries.   It,is the  high   protection   tariff* of   the  United  State that has   placed   that country in  the high position it stands in  the commercial world today, and if Canada with  her matchless   resources   is to take her  right place with other ecuntriep, she has  to adopt the Biune measures.   Never before iu the history of the   country   has  this sentiment of national independence  made itself so manifest asat the present,  which has only been increased by the  danger threatening the steel works of the  east and the mining industry of the west,  and st.'.pa   are   being taken against the  repetition of u like occurence.   A wave  of patriotism is sweeping   the  country,  one   the   present  government   cannot  afford to ignore, aud the  rallying cry at  the next Dominion election promises to  bo the protection of our industries and  Canada for Canadians.

Considerable activity is experienced  in municipal politics the past few days,  and nomination day is likely to see a  full ticket presented, with the possibilities of an election being held.  There is a movement on foot to form  all tbe silver-lead mines into one associate body.- With Ibis allected the prosperity now enjoyed in the Coeur d'  Alenes would soon spread to this province, and enable the producers to secure better smelter charges and higher  prices for their lead.  Premier Ross, of Ontaiio, who is also  vice-president of the Dominion Alliance  says the Tories worked and voted for  prohibition to embarrass the government. This may be so, but it is safe to  say the premier, although vice-pres. of  an active temperance league, used his  influence and voted against'prohibition  to help out the government.  We were asked a few days ago what  sido of the Local House Bob Green was  connected with. The Lord only knows.  Bob has been on every and all sides of  the House, and at Inst accounts was in  the cold shades of opposition and whip  for Richard McBride. Bob is of a chameleon character in provincial politics,  and from being a jumping-jack he has  now become a cracker-jack.  Tbe P. P. L"s. in the election at Nan a-  imo were understood to mean Prior,  Progress and.Prosperity, and Minister  McTnnes defeated his socialist opponent  by a majority of JOS. Little interest  was taken in tlie election and only a light-  vote was polled. Nanaiino is supposed  to be the hotbed of provincial socialism,  and from the turn of affairs the past  week at the coast, in the socialist-fold,  tbe Progressives (?) are doomed loan  early death.  Then why not get -the best to be had in the  country for the money. An immense stock  of the best goods and latest patterns now on  hand.    You will be convinced by calling on.  \ HI PDA  Sandon, The Leading Merchant  Tailor in the Kooteuay Country  Our school attendance has'dropped the  past year from thirty-eight to seventeen  and is likely to go still lower before long.  Under the now law the government  grant for 1903 is based upon the average  attendance of the last six months of the  present yeai. This being the case Sandon's government aid will be very small  indeed,, while the taxation of the ratepayers will be correspondingly large for  school purposes to defray expenses. A  good council of competent men for the  ensuing year is badly needed to grapple  with this perplexing question ; one that  will conduct the affairs of the city as the  statutes command and not as some people think they should.  Try Lethbridge Coal, then you will  have the best, and cheapest. This coal  will make the hottest and brightest fires,  besides it is earily handled, as it is very  clean.    We have it forall kindsof grate.  TICKETS  TO ALL POINTS  East and West  VIA  E. #. Cameron.  It is a noticeable fact to many how the  gulchitc and the Ledge ape each other.  Last week the former had an editorial  squib about Cliffe going to the ������00 and  the steel mills closed down. Of course  Lowery had to follow suit, and hia Bheet  this week had something to the same  effect. With these two it is case clog  follow master, only sometimes the pup  getB ahead. Cliffe has left Sandon and  the mines are shutdown.

Jim Smith got in trouble in a Western  town and when the affair was over  Jim  realized that he was in a bad way, as he  had killed his man.     And  to   make  it  worse he landed in   the   hands   of  the  police.   It was a case of trial for murder,  When brought before the court in the  old school house   Jim   recognized   the  foreman of the jury as   his   old   friend,  Mike Maloney.   The prisoner was  sitting near the foreman, and  during the  bustle preliminar}' to   tbe   proceedings  he managed to whisper to  him:     "It's  dead against me Mike, and   I wish   for  sake of old times you would hold   for  a  life sentence.   I can't expect anything  better.   Do this for me and I'll   never  forget you."  "All roight, Oi'll do the biet Oi kin,  Jim," replied the foreman in a whisper.  The trial went on and it waa not long  until all the evidence was in. The jury  retired and they must have had a heated  debate, as they did not return until late  at night. The verdict was imprisonment for life.  Smith was the happiest man in the  court room, as he had been afraid of  drawing a pass to the gallows. He  rushed up to the foreman and said:  "I'm am a thousand times obliged to  you, and I'll never forgetyourhindness.  How did you manage it?',  "Well, Jim," replied Mike, wiping the  perspiration from his forehead, "it wor  th' toughest argumint Oi iverhad. Ye  see elivin of the jurymen stuck togither  until a'few minutes ago. They wanted  ter aquit yer, but I Oi held out an' got  ye a loife sintince."  Carried Unanimously,  According to a gentleman who has  spent many years in the gold fields, the  average digger would bear comparison  with some of our best debaters.  Some time the "boys" of Nugget  Creek were in council assembled. Itwas  geneially admitted that tbe size of the  colony���������consisting as it did of something just over a dozen shanties���������entitled it to be considered a city, and  Mecca City sprang into existence.  Then one Roaring Dick arose and  wanted to know what the "citizens" intended to do in the matter of lighting  the "streets" by night.  "You know me,, boys" he said, twirl-  ling a formidable looking six-shooter.  "I ain't afraido' nothing, naythur in  in daylight nor dark. But it's this way  ���������other cities 'as got gas and Mecca's  got ter 'ave it."  "It can't be did!" said one.  "It's got ter be did! "roared the speaker. "Wot other cities does we does!  'iides, gas lamps is a hornament on'  lamp posts a habsolute necessity. Why,  ther' ain't a decent spot ter lynch a man  'within twenty miles. We're goin' ter  'ave lamp posts."

A poet has said of the saloon that it is  appropriately called a bar:  A bar to heaven, a door  to hell;  Whoever named it, named  it well;  A bar to manliness  and   wealth,  ��������� A door to want and broken   health,  A bar to honor, pride  and  fame,  A door to sin and grief and shame;  A bar to hope, a bar to   prayer,  A door to darkness   and  despair;  ; A bar to honored, usefnl  life,  A door to brawling senseless strife;  A bar to all that's true and brave,  A door to every drunkard's grave,  A bar to joy that home   imparts,  A door to tears and   aching hearts,  A bar to heaven, a door to hell,  Whoever named it, named   it well.  Curling this season appears to have  entirely taken hold of our townspeople.  This may more on account of leisure  time on their hands rather than  attributed to. any other cause. Now  tlfiit three sheets of ice are .generally  in use greater enthusiaism prevails. Besides the games is not free from the impressive "rubber" in encouraging their  favorite rinks along with a sprinkling  of the gentler sex. Andes the season  advances the membership roll is grad-  lually increasing, there being now 45  (members with a likelihood of further  increase in number.

A Nelson woman suspected that  her  husband was in the habit of kissing the  hired girl and resolved to detect him in  tbe act.   Saturday night she   saw  bim  pass quietly into the kitchen. The hired  girl was out and the kitchen dark. ��������� The  jealous wife took a few matches   in  her  hand, and hastily placing a shawl   over  her head as the  hired  girl   often   did,  entered the back door, and immediately  she was seized and kissed in the  most  ardent manner.     With   heart  almost  breaking, the wife prepared to administer a terrible   rebuke   to   the  faithless  spouse, and   tearing   herself   from   his  fond embrace, shestruch a match   and  stood face to face with���������the hired Chinaman.  Lucky Jim to Resume Work.-   .  Crisis Met Half Way.  There were strict orders in the Philippines regarding loosing, and one day a  lieutenant's suspicions were aroused by  a private whom he saw peering eagerly  under the piazza of a house on the outskirts of Manila.  "What are you doing there!" he demanded, in his gruffest tones.  "Why, sir," said the soldier,saluting,  "I'm only trying to catch a chicken  which I've just bought."  Lieutenant K stooped and caught  sight of a fine, pair of fowls.  "There are twochickensunder there."  he exclaimed excitedly : "I bought the  other one.    Catch 'em both."  The Lucky Jim commenced working  operations again this week aftera period  of idleness extending over two years.  A lease lias been given on tbe property  to Alex. Goldsmith and ' Jefferies of  this city.  The leasees are now engaged in clearing away the snow from the mine buildings and when things generally are put  in shape to" permit mining, a small force  of miners will be put on and gradually  increased as room is made for them.  The Lucky Jim at one time was one  of the heaviest shippers of silver- lead  ore in the camp, and-owing to tiie large  percentage of zinc associated with those  metals, and with the penalty' attached  to the smelting of the same, it was as a  consequence compelled to suspend operations until changes took place of a  more favorable character.'  Now that a market for the zinc has  come into existance, the resumption  of work again can be traced mainly to  this cause. It will in all probablify be  as large a producer as it has in the piist.  Qa.ick Ideals  East  Kootenay Zinc.  In Southeast Kootenay, much interest  has been aroused in the development of  the zinc, smelting business and the  promises which are being held out for  the treatment of Kootenay zinc-lead  ores, if favorable duties into the United  States can be secured. A number of  mines on the east side of Kootenay river  are known to carry a high percentage in  zinc. With modern methods of smelting, the penalty placed on zinc ores removed, a number of properties in this  district will be enabled to'become iship-  pers.-'-Fort Steele Prospector.  C P. R.
