The Jackson House, the Whitewater  and Victoria hotels at Whitewater are  all applying for liquor licenses.  Logan McPhee left for Yakima, Wash.,  Monday, an receiving word that his  partner was seriously hurt while running a hay press.  The Thanksgiving dance-held -at tlie  Whitewater hotel at Whitewater was a  decided success and was largely attended  and enjoyed by all present.  R. H. Truethan,' photographer, came  in on Wednesday evening and left the  following day for Kaslo, where he will  stay for ten days/ He will return to  Sandon on the 17th, and will be in his  studio here until the evening ol the  26th.  Mr. J. B. Fischer loft Thursday for  Nelson, on his way to Vancouver and  Victoria, for the purpose ofi purchasing  machinery for Ins proposed large brewery at Ashnola. When Air. Fischer  concludes his business at the coast, he  leaves for Seattle to spend Christmas  with his family.  The Stuttz Theatre Co. will pay a return visit to Sandon shortly. The company have beon greeted with crowded  houses everywhere they went in eastern  Canada and are now on their return trip  west. They have an entire "change-of  plays, the leading one of which is "Le  Bastille." a thrilling dramaof thoFrenoh  Revolution. The date is not fixnd yet,  but he expects to reach here in the  course of a few weeks.  G. W. Hughes, 0. V. White, Maurice  Gintzberger, L. Pratt, J. O'Regan and  John L. Retallack were in Nelson this  week, attending thu annual meeting of  of the Mine Owners' Association.  Patterson & Patterson is the name of  a new firm of men's furnishers who  started up this week. They have opened  their store in the union block.and solicit  a fair share of the public patronage.  A special meeting of the directors of  the Kaslo Smelter, Limited, was held  on Tuesday afternoon at which it. was  decided to ask the city council to introduce another bylaw giving the company  a bonus of $50,000 and exemption from  taxation for ten years. This will be a  bylaw similar to the one which expired  on October 1st. The Glasgow expert  who ie now on his way here to look into  the proposition of the erection ��������� of a  smelter here by the company being  formed by Maurice Gintzberger, is expected to arrive in. Kaalo within the  next ten days.���������Kootenaian.  Mr. McKenzie King, who was sent up  from Ottawa to investigate the labor  trouble at. Rossland, that he could not  help "reporting against the miners'  unions.. As he saw the matter, the  unions wanted to impose conditions on  the mine owners that would leave them  powerless io help themselves if they met  the demands of the unions. He said the  country could not prosper under such  conditions, and Canada could not afford  to have this province knocked on the  head to please one class of men. While  in Rossland he saw a dozen men chasing "one Ynun ; to dp bim bodily harm;  and that man's only offence was that he  was a non-union man and not working.  He saw also the police were not offering  the protection thev should.  The Lead Conference.  Win. Walinsley, better known  "Billy," has been appointed manager  of the Nelson Hockey team for this season. Nels'm could not have chosen a  more popular sportsman than "Billy"  as the hockevists of Sandon can verify.  He was manager of the invincible Sandon Juniors while they held the junior  championship of British Columbia and  ���������were battling for the cup which thoy  now hold, flis interest in the boys was  unbounded, and he will bo greatly  missed in Sandou this winter.  Now for a snap! We have completed  arrangements with the publishers of  the Winnipeg Free Press, one of the  best newspapers of Canada, by which  we can give that excel'ent weekly, the  Mining Review and one of the best  thermometers and barometers combined, for the sum of.$3 00. All who subscribe now will get the two papers for  the balance of this vear thrown in���������  that is to the end of 1902for this money,  and the instrument at once. This offer  will be extended to'all present subscribers to the Mining Review who pay all  arrears and one year iu advance. Don't  delay this matter.  James Wilks,   vice-president of  the  Western  Federation of Miners, James  A.   Baker,   member  of  the   executive  board for district No. G, and John Kelly,  member of the executive board for district No. 2, have returned from Denver,  Colorado.   They   have   issued   a  joint  statement in which they declare that  the strike at Rossland and Northport  will.be kept up. Further they state that  the Western Federation is in a financial  position to maintain the struggle for an  indefinite oeriod, and that  the  members   being  firmly impressed with the  justice of their cause are determined to  stay with the fight unless a satisfactory  adjustment is effected.   In this position  thev will be supported, regardless of expense, to tlie fullest extent of the power  possessed  by the,Western  Federation.  They furth.er.state'that  the  strike will  be declafeddff.when the requests of the  unions have been  acceded  to, but  not  before; ^ ''���������'���������'������������������ -"������������������'���������--:'"' '".'��������� " "'':' ���������������������������';������������������;,"��������� ���������   .  Mr. Gintzberger,'of the Monitor mine,  _ j was in'-Nelfion this week attending the  annual meeting of the Mine Owners'  Association, and while there expressed  his views on the proposed smelter project he has in hand to a newspaper reporter. Miv Gintzberger said that  while in Scotland some time ago he  made arrangements for the necessary  capital required for the exterprise and  that .an expert was now oh his, way  here to look . over the district and decide whether it would go ahead or not.  It will be run as a business proposition  apart from the Monitor mine. As the  opinion seems to'be.held that the company owning the mine are behind the  project, he gives an emphatic denial  and says it is a purely private, company  who have the transaction under wav.  The outcome of the conference between the silver-lead miners of the  Coeur d'Alene and the American smelting trust has as yet not reached a climax  although it is anticipated that a cut of  J��������� cent per lb. will be made agaist the  former.  The contention of the trust is that they  have a surplus   of somewhere between  40,000 and 50,000 tons of lead   on   hand  for which they have paid 4 cents a  lb.  If they were  to   continue   to   pay   the  same price along with   the   steady  accumulation of  the   metal   they   would  eventually bo forced to throw it on  the  market at a much lower price than they  paid for it, thus.causing the trust considerable loss.   Then   again the 'trust  fears in the event of  cutting  the  lead  price to a lower  figure   the   silver-lead  miners would resent the reduction   and  form an   independent   combine,   erect  their own smelters and refineries which  would be instrumental in manipulating  the market price  to   suit  themselves.  In order to checkmate this move of the  lead   producers   the   trust   by   way of  retaliation threatens to enter the  British Columbia market where.itcan secure  all the lead-ore they want at  $1.40  per  hundred pounds.    This .lead   could   be  delivered in the United States at $2.90  after paying a duty of 1 1-2 cents per lb.  as against the 4 cents paid to the American producers.   It is easily seen that by  using   this  threat-the   trust is trying  to force the lead   producers  into  submission in accepting their terms and as  e ������  ��������� 9  I  Mining News   ���������  ������ * 9  ��������� ���������  89009������0������������000090������e0000������9 969  The Rambler at McGuigan shipped  20 tons for this week.  There were no ore shipments from  Three Forks during November.  Frank V. O'Neil has secured tho Pul-  man and Chicago Fractions, adjoining  the Chicago, from John Docksteader.  The Sunset ore is being brought  through the Trade Dollar tunnels which  connects both properties and is now  shipped from Cody.  For November the ore shipments  from Whitewater amounted to 2 75tons.  Whitewater 272 Ions' and the Frae  Coinage three tons, a trial shipment.

" :���������"'���������'-.'  An agreement between the two'..' rival  factions may shortly be adjusted .by  which the producers will accept a little  under the 4 cent rate and restrict the  productfori in the meantime. When  the surplus is disposed of the trust will  raise the price of lead to its normal  state. ; .  To protect themselves from this state  of affairs the British Columbia silver-  lead producers will have to build their  own smelters and refineries so. they  will be relieved from the intrigues they  will be subject to if they have to depend  on the trust to help them in such a  dilemma just cited.  Will Drill to Find Coal.  Greenwood, Dec. 3.���������Word comes from  Princeton that the drilling outfit ordered by the Vermillion Forks Mining &  Development Company has arrived at  Vernon. Ernest Waterman left for  Vernon to superintend the shipping in  of the plant, which will be loaded on  trucks and brought in to Princeton. It  will be tho first drill for prospecting the  coal measures at depth to operate in Lhe  Princeton coal basin.  The Similkameen Valley Coal Company will also bring in a drill. This  company,has the biggest seam of coal  yet found in the district. It measures  on the surface 100 feet in thickness. It  is stated that William Blakemore, M.  E., a former superintendent of the  Crow's Nest Coal Company, has been  offered and accepted the position of  consulting engineer for the company.  . Captain F. S. Scott, of San Francisco,  and Eugene Cornish, of Cape Nome, arc  arranging; to open up tlie hydraulic  leases they hold on Whipsaw creeks.  City Council.  Regular meeting of the city council  was held Monday evening.  Communications were received from  E. M. Sandilands regarding insuring the  city hall; the Hunter-Kendrick Co. in  reference to a ' smallpox account and  taxes; C. Cliffe reference to taxes; Rev.  'Pye, to remit taxes on parsonage.

Moved by Alderman Duffy, seconded  by Alderman Cameron, That this  council recommend to the Lieut.-Gov-  ernor-in-Council the appointment of O.  E. Lyons as police magistrate of the  city of Sandon.���������Carried.  The city clerk was instructed to make  the necessary corrections in the asss-  ment roll for 1001 in collecting arrears  as may be necessary.  Sidney Norman, who recently bonded  the Transfer group, has made arrangements for the development .of the property. Supplies for a force of six or  seven' men, to last the' month, were  purchased and sent up the hill a few-  days ago. Development Mork will be  pushed this winter.  ".' Alfred 0. Garde, formerly of the War  Eagle and Centre Star, and now manager of the Payne mine at Sandon, left  last evening after spending a couple of  days in the city renewing old friendships.- Mr. Garde slates that the work  at the Payne"is progressing in a satisfactory manner and that the outlook is  excellent. He is connecting the long  tunnel at the 800-foot level with the  unper working with an.upraise, and this  work will be completed within a few  weeks. Meantime tlie mine is shipping  steadily. The experiment of installing  electric drills at the mine has proved  most successful. The (wo machines put  in are. running smoothly and giving good  satisfaction.���������Rossland Miner.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipinenfs  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tons.  Payne.

The outcome of the. meeting of the  Mine Owners'Association in Nelson is  being watched with interest. So far no  definite announcement has been made,  but the general opinion is that the Association will erect and operate a smelter  and refinery of their own. The attendance of mine owners and representatives  was very large. The mining industry  of the Slocan was thoroughly gone over  and the excessive freight and treatment  charges were discussed in full.  Shipments   from   McGuigan  for   the  month of November were:  Mine. Tons.  Rambler  550  AVashingfon     "50  Sunset     20  Red Fox    20  Soho.. -i    10,U<  Total...  OSO^  Messrs. M. L.

So fur from reaching the  lorcunii ho had hoped J'or,  the owner  was left iu debt Tor tlie price of the  useless, ruined wall.  Another bold' miner whom success  tantalized J'or three wearv vears was  the owner of the Speedwell "lead-mine  m Derbyshire, England. This'monu-  . mont ao wasted ingenuity can' be  visited to-day, though the man who  lailed has been dead a century. Believing" that a rich vein of lead and  silver existed in a hill, this  risked his whole capital to reach it.  He bored a tunnel three thousand  feet long right into the heart of the  mountain. Suddenly  his   workers  broke through a wall of  ROCK INTO A VAST. >  bidden cavern, through which a  black torrent poured, its icy stream.  Away on the opposite wall the  miners', lamp-light gleamed on the  promised vein of ore. But to get  there it was necessary to construct  a causeway, and they promptly began to dump rock into the depths.  I en thousand tons of stuff were  poured into the chasm, and slowly  but surely a bridge rose out of the  darkness. But at last a day came  when, with all their efforts, they got  no farther. Month after 'month they  toiled, and at last, after forty thousand tons in all had been' cast into  the  head of an army of 80,000 fanatics  in the mountains of Southern Abyssinia. This man was a renegade ollicer  from the Austrian Army, a born  stones i leader of men, and a very dangerous  md in ; character.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1901.  A.M. Cameron, of Victoria,   was in  the city last week organising a "Socialistic Club."    There is no gainsaying  many of the fundamental principles of  Socialism are sound; but is so associated with Anarchy of late days that the  name itself is omenous.   Helping our  fellow man in times of need is one of  the best acts  humanity  can   possibly  perform:     but  encouraging indolence  at the expense of the enterprising and  energetic citizen   becomes  a different  thing.   Socialism perverted declares, in  substance,  the world owes every man  a living, and he is entitled   to it by  fair means or by foul.   This establishes  ' the  doctrine that   "might is  right,"  which was a very dangerous one in all  ages.   If men are over taken by misfortunes,   not   the   result   of  their own  indolence or vicious habits, helping and  encouraging them in most laudable; but  assuring them that no one should possess  , more than a certain amount of wealth;  and that when they have more it should  be taken from   them is a fatal stab at  ingenuity,  enterprise and   thrift   that  ' have done so much in all ages to advance  the cause of humanity.   Assure Edison,  for instance, that be will be allowed to  secure but a certain amount of wealth,  and that when he amasses more it will  be taken from him for the benefit of his  less    fortunate    neighbors,  and   that  .moment you terminate his inventions.  Tell the contractor who has made money  out of the labor of men that when his  means  reaches a certain   figure,   they  must grow no farther; and that moment  you destroy his employment of  labor  and perhaps deprive many of a livelihood,   who   are   unable   to   earn  one  through other channels, and so on all  along the line.   It is the incentive to  amass wealth that has brought out the  best  abilities  of   many   a  man,    the  exercise of. which has created livings  for thousands.   Destroy that incentive,  and yon at once clog many of the wheels  of the world's progress.  The importance of this province is  : but poorly understood, even by many  of its  people.   Last year, for instance,  the  5,400,000 people  of  all   Canada,  excepting this province, exported goods  to the value of $160,000,000, or !f39 per  head.   British Columbia on the othor  hand, with its 200,000 people, sent out  $17,000,000 worth of exports, or $112 per  head.   In other words, the people of  this province for their labor got nearly  $4.00 fro in outside countries for every  one dollar got by the people of the rest  of Canada.   Nothing can speak more  eloquently and forcibly than this.   On  the   other   hand   again,    while   other  nations and the people of other provinces of Canada are importing much they  require   for   every   day    consumption,  with our resources properly developed,  British   Columbia     need   import  but  very little.   We have an abundance of  -nearly every mineral we can find use  for in our manufactures, including an  unlimited supply of coal.   We have, or  can have, .plenty, of agricultural products  ���������for a large population, including fruit  and  dairy .products,, and   no  end  of  timberand fi8hi ���������.

Scott's Emulsion does some  things 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.

The tunnels and open working:-  above  oilier  exceptional    advantages for this sort of deep   mining.   By  provision, therefor, the water that flows  into the overhead workings can be collected there and conducted down to tlie  tunnel  level in pipes under pressure  which can there be utilized for power  development.     Practically,   this  costs  the minimum in the way of investment,  and, being possible of use direct,   can  provide the maximum of effective work  from the theoretical efficiency.   It  is  safe  to say that 70  per cent  of   the  theoretical water power can be had in  work.   Under average condition,  more  water will enter each 100-foot depth of  workings above the tunnel levels than  below.   The power, then, that can be  developed   from   the   inflowing   water  above will perform  the service ,of lift-  .ing of the lesser quantity of water coming in workings below to a depth very  nearly, if not entirely, equal to the feet  of head of the power water.   With these  practical working conditions, the tunnel  exploration of lode deposits in Colorado  means  cheap deep   mining   to depths  that are unthinkable with dependence  solely on shafts from the surface.   The  deep mining so effected may not be as  spectacular as the deep shaft mining  projected in the Transvaal,  but it has  the more   satisfying  quality of a safer  and larger profit margin.

These  are b'eiug run to crosscut single mountains and ranges containing a large  number of ore-bearing ledges.

In addition  to the great depth of backs over the  floor level that these tunnels open, they  can, when these upper ore   bodies are  The shipments for last month totalled  1076 tons of ore shipped over the C.P.K.  and Kv& S. railway. For October the  shipments amounted to 141S tons, leaving November 342 tons behind the  previous month. This can be accounted for as the roads were inbad condition  and prevented both teaming and raw-,  hiding for the last two weeks in November. The Slocan Star had at the end of  last month over 500 tons of ore sacked  at the mill to be brought down. Wilh  the Slocan Star ore allow 150 tons more  from other mines and the Sandon output would have been 172G tons for last  month, or a gain of 308 tons over  October.

Charles Dempster, who floated the  Eppublic deal, has successfully disposed  of the Champion group, at Slocan, to  eastern parties. -Billy Harrington, one  of the owners in the Champion received a wire last week from the bank at  Windsor, Ontario, stating that the  purchase money had been paid over to  his credit from Mr. Dempster.  The Champion group consists of the  Champion and Sapphire claims, about  one and one-half miles from the lake  and owned by Billy Harrington and  Billy Lee. The claims were located last  spring and haye nothing done on them  ��������� beyond surface stripping. By this an  ore shoot has been exposed that, so far  as shown, is 300 feet long and runs as  wide as'two and one-half feet. Assays  show that the general average of the ore  is'good. It is a dry ore and similar to  that of the V. & j\L group.  In'deferenee to the wishes of the  interested parties the price and terms  of the deal' are withheld, but the figures, are for a pubtantial amount.  What Mr. Dempster's plans are will not  be known until he arrives, but it is  expected he will order work to begin at  once on both the Republic and Champion properties.  In addition to our made-to-order department, "which  will always be kept up to the pink of perfection, we have  put in a fine assortment of all  )  m  Our Boots and Shoes, Underclothing, and, in fact,  all supplies���������-just what's wanted in the camp.

A young lawyer,  just starting in his profession, hung  out his sign in a town where there  was only one other lawyer, an aged  judge. A close-:l.;tcd fellow thinking  to get legal advice for nothing, called upon the young man. told him he  was' very glad he had come into the  town,, as the old judge was getting  fcuperannuated, and then contrived in  to a sort of neighborly talk to get some  legal questions ��������� answered. Then,  thanking the young man, he put on  his hat and was about to leave when  the young man asked him if he  should charge the advice, for which  the fee was five dollars. The old  fellow went into a. violent passion,  and swore he ne never would pay:  The young lawyer told him he would  sue him if he didn't. So the old fellow went down to see (the judge,  found him hoeing in his garden, nnd  said :���������  "That young scamp that's just  come into town ! I dropped in to  make a neighborly call on him, and  he charges mo five dollars for legal  advice.''  '"Served you right." said tho  judge, "you had no business to  havo gone to him."  "But have I got to pay it judg'O?'-'  "Of course, you  have."  "W'cli, then," said the man. "I  suppose I must," and he started off.  "Hold on," said the judge, 'aren't  \ou going to pay me ?"

Remember,  my terms are  The Boers, who arc still swooping  down upon the British troops wherever they sec a chance to do damage, seem to have plenty of guns  and cartridges. A British-paper asked the5', question the other day:  "Where do the Boers get their munitions '?" Many of the British arc  much surprised both by the tenacity  with which the Boer remnant still  cling to their cause and by the fact  that these bushwhackers seem to  have all the rifles, powder and bail  they need.  Nobody is able clearly to solve the  mystery, but somo facts point to the  probable sources of supply.  In the first r lace the Boers had an  enormous supply of munitions when  the war began. They had been buying for several years and in one  year they spent about SI,000,000.  There is reason to believe that thcy  had not        nearly        exhausted  their        munitions        when they  themselves became so overwhelmned  by superior numbers that they could  no longer fight with strength and  energy. Pretoria had been supplied  with everything required to stand a  long siege; but when the British got  there the Boers made no resistance  to theirocc upancy of the town. The  British found no war, material in  Pretoria. It is probable that such  munitions as had been reserved  HAD BEEN CARRIED OFF  to the eastern mountains and concealed. Tho Boers declared that in  the event of their defeat they .would  have plenty of 'arms left among the  fastnesses of the mountains to carry  on a guerilla warfare for years to  come.  Tho Boers arc improving every opportunity to capture munitions from  the British. It has been reported  that in quite a number of the raids  and fights of the past year the Boers  captured considerable quantities of  muni'ions.  3t is also known that the Bocis  have captured more or less material  coming into the Transvaal on railroad trains. For months past, Consul Hollis writes from Lorenzo Marques, the entire transportation system has been taxed to its utmost  capacity to supply rations and munitions of war to British troops in the  garrisons and in the field. Much  of this material has been kept for  weeks at the various ports including  Lorenzo Marques, waiting for cars  in which it might finally be sent to  its destination. . The Portuguese,  on the ground that the former  Boer republics arc now legally  ly in possession of Great Britain as  a prize of war, permit this material  to pass freely through the Portuguese port. Consul Hollis says the  Boers, every now and then, arc capturing trains on the line of the Del-  agoa Bay railroad. In this way  they are adding some fresh material  to   their   war resources.  As far as can be seen the Boers do  not  lack  munitions.   It  was  reported, .however,  the other day that the  British had turned back a load     of  i saltpetre which entered Dclagoa Bay  ���������en route to  the Boers for their use  ������������������in making gunpowder.      If at    any '  time    they become crippled for  war'  resources the fact will soon be made  evident.  ;E BOOK  I have just completed ray beautiful Illustrated Book telling how it C  cures the weakness of men and women.

The red hat of a, cardinal costs  him more money than kings pay for  any except their very best crowns.  Before accepting it the grateful prelate must make offerings to the  Propaganda and to his titular  church at Rome, and pay fees to a  long list of officials,' ranging - from  chamberlains of the Vatican down  to cooks and sweepers and soldiers  of the Swiss Guard. Indeed, the  new cardinal has to pay fees at every step from the moment of his creation to the occasion of his receiving the red hat in public consistory,  and when all is over and done finds  himself out of pocket to the extent  of 52,500 at least.

Have  your layer cake all put together and  perfectly cold, so the warmth of the  oven will not soften the filling. Pin  a strip of buttered paper around it  aa you pin cloth around berry pic,  and spread the frosting on the cake  leaving the paper enough above tho  cake to hold it. Brown evenly in a  quick oven. Then with a thin knife  take off the paper, separating it  carefully so as not to break the edge  of the frosting, which will be crispy.  This frosting will also be found  much more satisfactory for single  crust pies than plain beaten whites  of eggs.  Firm Tcing : To mako an icing  that is neither brittle nor soft, measure the white of un egg, and add  exactly the same amount of cold water. Add flavoring", and without  beating the egg stir in enough powdered sugar so it will just spread  with a knife. To make fancy figures on cakes for special occasions,  roll a sheet of stiff writing paper into a cornucopia, leaving a small opening at the point, (ill with the icing and squeeze out through the opening, as you form the figure.

But in  i.rowning    the    breast they .sacrifice  the    sweetness     of this purt of the  fowl.   The  best  way to  prepare     a  i nrkey is to bake it with the breast  down.

You see, all the fine flavoring of the  turkey,   the juices    of     the dressing  and all     the daintier     touches flow  down toward the breast of the fowl,  and  when  the white meat is served  you get the full benefit of every flavor  added  during tho processes-     of  preparing and  baking the turkey   in  addition to   the distinctive taste  of  the fowl itself.

The Whitewater camp is one of the  i busiest milling sections in the Slocan at  the present time.   There are it large  - number of prospects besides the mines  (working,   most of. them  being, under  .development and employing stufla from  . two to six men. The indications are that  .���������some of the promising properties  will  '.continue work all winter and increase  r"their forces in the spring.  ���������  ���������    The Whitewater,  the big mine of the  .'.camp, is working with about 85 men on  the payroll.   The concentrator is running two shifts a day as usual, aud the  ore put throughthe mill will average a  cur a day.   The ore taken out of the  .mine is improving in quality and increasing in   production at the present  (-ume.   During October 4,900 tons have  .milled, producing 483 tons ot concentrates.     There  is    considerable    zinc  found in the property.  The Echo, in Jackson basin, is to'be  worked all winter.  The Sunset is working with a small  .force and making small shipments to  the smelter regularly.  The Charleston is being developed on  a small scale and may work all winter.  Operations were started about two  months ago. The tunnels were iirst  cleaned out aud now are in good condition for work.  Two men have charge of the Fletcher  group, probaby under lease, and are  putting in their time on this property.  ���������This mine will be worked extensively  by the owners next spring, and who are  now applying for a crown grants A  crosscut is being driven towards the  lead and it will take about 80 feet more  work to tap it. The Fletcher is a dry  ore proposition.  The Iron Hand is coming to the front.  Banting Bros., the owners, have spent  "money and time on this property, on  which there are a number of good showings. In one tunnel there is 18 inches  of concentrating ore. They have some  clean ore in sight in some of the workings. There is considerable concentrating ore on the damp ready [or shipment.  The Iron Rock and Texas group,  owned by Mr. Taylor have been pushed  in development work by small forces.  The Iron Rock has finished the assess-  work and has beon closed down.  Among other mines that are working  are the Wellington and Jackson.
