The meeting  will be addressed by S. S. Taylor, K. C,  of Nelson, Mayor Grimmett and others.  The aims and objects of   the association  will   be  fully   explained,   the  chief of  which is to secure better legislation for  the   mining   industry of the province;  not one branch   in   particular,  but tho  whole   in   general.   The  mining situation of the country is so depressed, that  public action on the part of the people  to secure more staple legislation   Isui-  gently needed. A similar slate of affairs  . existed   in  California  some few years  ago, which was the means   of  arousing  the people and forming an association  . to revive the industry.   Men   of every  rank and calling  interesting in mining  were invited to join.   The  scheme took  like   wildfire.   Branches   were rapidly  established in almost  every town   and  city in the state,   and  in   a very short  while the mining industry from a low  condition   came   to   the tront by leaps  and bounds.   As   soon  as   satisfactory  conditicns were assured capital from all  parts of the world poured   in.   Numerous properties were opened up and mining received such an impetuous, thm the  the whole state soon represented a hive  of industry   This   was  years ago, but  the benefits derived by the   forming of  the assoiation are manifest to the   present day.   The Provincial Mining Asso-  j affecting the welfa  jcttivethe attention it  merits while he is  at the head of affairs.

Everybody can  join; from the mine manager to the  inti'iker, as weil as ev^ry class of business. Sandon ii us seen rid hearty support from the rest of the province to  better the conditions of siJver-lead mining in the Slocan, and it is-only right  that the Silver City should in turn take  an Hctive part in , the..campaign now  being conducted, which will place the  whole mining industry on a firmer  basis and spread prosperity throughout  the entire country.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21,1903.  /  The delegates   from   the   Kootennys,  representing'the mining, business and  labor interests, who went'to intarview  Senator TeiQipleman and other British  Columbia representative in  the Federal  ���������  parliament,   returned   tlie   first of the  week, and from the account of the proceedings reproduced elsewhere   in   this  isBtie, the outcome of  the discussion of  affairs is very gratifying.   The mining  situation was fairly laid  before the provincial representative   at   Ottawa,   by  those most competent to do so, ai.d explained that unless something was soon  done to remedy the  matter,  tho  towns  dependent on silver-lead  mining would  cease to exist.   Our  worthy mayor explained   the   condition of  Sandon, the  centre of the industry, that from a busy  city of over 2,000 people of a  few  years  ago it had dwindled down to a few hundreds.   He represented the public opinion of the chief cenire of the distressed  districts, and although a Liberal and opposed tohigh tariffin general, he was convinced   that   nothing short of the duty  asked by the mine owners would bring  about the former prosperity to  the city  MIRROR, SCALES, ETC.  There was a man. And his  mirror said "sallow' skin.:'  And the scales said "losing  weight." And his friends did  wag their heads as he passed  by. But being a prudent man  he. forthwith swallowed daily  certain pleasant doses of Scott's  Emulsion.  Then his mirror said "ruddy  face." And the scales sunk  beneath his weight. And his  friends looked upon him   with  amaze.  (Note ���������This is no fable���������but is true  history),  We'll send you a little to try, if you like.

The.feeling is  merely.one of indifference  rather   than  antagonistic   to    its  welfare.

The appeal which is being 'mads  to the public, is one, if the meaning was  thoroughly grasped, would undoubtedly  receive the attention it so jiistly merits,  but the flame of interest is not   kindled  yet to arouse public curiosity.     A   system of public meetings will   shortly- be  undertaken throughout the entire province, when it is expected delegates will  be elected from  the  various   organized  points to attend a general assembly   to  be held in Victoria shortly, who will in  turn properly form a mining association  on broad lines and adopt some plan   by  which ihe present slumbering  state of  mining be resurretced.    The people are.  fast    realizing   that  something   must  b������ done to bring about a revival of mi* -  ing in   the   province   and   when   fully  made acquainted with the objects   and  ams of the association,   the   principaln  will undoubtedly  be assured of a hearty  cooperation on the part of the people of  the interior in the movement.

Views of   the   Kootenay   Were  Forcibly   Presented.  VVe reproduce the proceedings of the  meeting held in Vancouver Thursday  bust between the lead deputation from  the Kootenay and the British Columbia  members in the Dominion house taken  from the Vancouver World which may  be of interest to our readers:.  The deputation from the interior was  composed as follows: iir. R.W. Gregor,  president Rossland Liberal club; Dr.  Hall, president Nelson Liberal club; Mr.  John Burns, presidentTradesand Labor  Council, Nelson ; Mr. G. 0. Jhnhanan,  president Associated Boards of Trade,  East and Wes.t Kootenay ; Mr. J.T. Ret-  tallack, president Ottawa silver-lead  delegation ; Mr. M. L. GrimmeiL, mavor  of Sandon and president of the Sandon  Liberal club; Mr. D. V. Molt, Fernie,  B. C; Mr. J. A. Harvey. Fort Steele;  Mr. Geo. Alexander, president Rulh  Mining Co.. Kaslo; Mr. L. Pratt, secretary Silver-Lead Mining Association;  Mr. P. Chapman, representing Nelson  Board of Trade.  Mr. Geo. Alexander, president of the  Ruth Mining Co., Kaslo, was the first  speaker. He said the delegation had  just returned from Ottawa where they  had gone to see the government regarding imposing an extra import duty on'  lead. It hud been pointed out to them  that it was necessary that the members  from British Columbia should be made  acquainted with the case. The deputation were, able to point o'U that the  population of the Kootenay had decreased nearly 3,000 owing to the lead  situation.    Jt was a curious fact, he  re  read) the   high-water   mark  oi  30,000  tons again.  Mr. G. O. Buchanan,   presidentol the  Associated Boards of Trade of East and  West Kootenay, said during  the  latter  part of the past summer the mine owners of East and West Kootenay had  assembled to discuss and explain thesitu-  ation.   Tln.y had met the railway   and  smelting interests who were   consulted,  and the result was the parsing cf a reso-'  lution asking thegovernmentto increase  the import duty on all lead products. It  was a vital question to l be people of the  Kootenay, as the very existence of many  of the towns in  that district  depended  upon the mines.   .Several of  the  mines  had already decided to shutdown unless  something   was   done   inside    of    six  months to  remedy matters.     The   St.  Eugene  mine   at   Moyie   was   already  closed and the Whitewater mine, on the  line of the Kaslo & Slocan railway, was  also out of business in addition to several  others. The industry, lead mining, supported 30,000 people and employed over  3,000 men. ��������� So far as the merits, of the  case was concerned he thought the   request asked were most fair.     The   lead  tariff had been made beforesuchathing  as lead mining in Canada  was  thought  of and the present laws were framed by  the Fathers of Confederation. -No Canadian firm could operate with   any   degree under the present  scale   of  duty.  Our pig lead was practically, under present conditions, going for nothing. There  should not, he thought,   be   any   great  objection to having the tariff adjusted if  united action was taken.     The impression had gone abroad  that   we   in   the  west did not know what we wanted and  it was felt that if tlie British Columbia  delegation went down  to Ottawa   and  were not strong and aggressive  in their  opinions the government might believe  there was some truth in the reports.   It'  marked, that when the   United   States  people learned that the deputation had \ waH<lesire<Ho impress upon the govern-  gonci to Ottawa, they bad sent a representative to the Kootenay to say they  w, re prepared to buy the lead. Many  meetings hail been held relative lo.the  condition ot aflairs and it hud been decided to ask the government, having  in  ment that the demands asked for were  just and right ami upon their being  granted depended the advance of the  Kootenay country. He closed by saying  that he was convinced, from an interview which the deputation had at Ottawa with tlie ministers, that somemeas-  manufacturers and consumersof lead, to j "re ������" re-ard to the lead Question would  ' be enacted at the coming session of the  view  the   interests  of   tho   producers,  put on a duty equal to that imposed  bv ,  the United Elates, viz: On lead in ores", | ^minion parliament.  1 1-2 cents per pound ; on lead in bul-, Mr. R.

The  public  ' bad to be educated, and be knew of   no  Jt this con 1.1 be obtained it would get a  market which would enable them to  operate their mines, fn Ottawa the government seemed to think wo were asking a rather high duty, but it thought  if a united action were taken thegovern-  ineiit would be convinced that the duty  asked was most reasonable. The question of dealing with the tariff waaaditii-  ciilt one, but the deputation gained from  the government that if they secured the  support ol the members of parliament  for'British Columbia a satisfactory arrangement could be.arrived at. .A deputation from the Kootenay, he said,  would visit Ottawa so soon hb the Dominion House met. The fact was not  overlooked that the consumption of lead  better way to dothisthanby discussions  such as were at present taking place.  There were certain points which vere  difficult to understand. Although they  were not in the silver-lead belt they  were just as much interested. The feeling that existed in Rossland and the  Boundary country was that the government must deal with the matter and  give relief.to the miners of the Slocan.  His Worship Mayor Grimmett of Sandon was next introduced. PIo said the  position of tho lead mine operator at  the present time was a deplorable one.  Speaking as a liberal, the proposition to  increase the tariff was not a pleasant  one, but it had to be faced. He pointed  out that three or four years ago'Sandon  ��������� had a population of 2,000 and today it was  at present in Canada was only  between  12 and 14 thousand tons bul, the speaker  said that he had no doubt  that   under-' merely existing because of the fact that  nioro   favorable   conditoins,   it   would   the great industry of the town had gone  '   I have now in stock, a choice assortment of"  Nickel  Enamelled  Stamped  sincl K-Jsb-jp&jjcucL&di Ware.

He reoresented public opinion  in his district and that   opinion   voiced  the sentiments of the deputation which  had bo recently returned from   Ottawa.  He thought the request would be granted and all would share in theprosperity  which would result from it.  Mr. J. A.

THE MINING Review-Saturday, February  21, 1903.  That Hockey Match,  A prettier or faster hockey match was  never seen on a Rossland rink than the  match yesterday afternoon between the  teams from Nelson and Sandon,says the  Rossland Miner of Saturday.     I���������   the  opened with its great combination work  (and by some clever manipulation of the  puck on the part of Hood, Howarth,  CliiTe and E. Crawford carried (he puck  down near enough for Hood to put it  through.

Sandon,  showed up the stronger,of tho two teams  and should have won the match. ��������� It  was, in factj their rushing tactics when  they might have   played   a  defeni  ive  Sandon' players on the offensive. ' It  took them but a few minutes to work  their combination down toward the Nel-  .     - - .01s0"   goal   a������d   again' the   puck   went  lation playing ever  seen   on   the! through, Cliffe doing the trick.

Time and auain  their was a quick rush of the red and  white, of Sandon down the ice, which  only broke when they encountered'!;' e  strong defense of the Nelsonites. Goal  shots were tried almost every uvniue by  the Sandon boys,- but Archibald and  Bishop played too well together.  Sandon had the match practically   in  hand in the first half,   and   if,   instead  of trying to score more in  the   second,  they had tried defpnsivc playin* (ho result might have been   widely  different.  As it was, at the last minute as Referee  Bonnert was blowing the whistle as an  intimation   that  the   game' was over,  Hood shot for goal and scored.     If  the  goal had been allowed the  score  Would  have   been   a   tie,   with   the   chances  strongly in favor of Sandon  ultimately  winning.     "When  the   last  goal   went  through the crowd rose to their feet and  cheered.   Nothing could be heard for a  few seconds, although the Nelsons gathered out in the middle of   the   ice  and  cheered for   the defeated   team.     The  sight of the Nelsons cheering  was  the  first intimation to  the spectators   that  the goal had not been allowed and  that  Nelson was the winner of   the   match.  Sandon started the match strong.   So  fast was the playing that it was   plain  that unless they were  in   the- best  of  condition and could keep up tho terrific  6train they would loose out   ultimately.  No sooner.had the whistle  blown   than I  Sandon started bucking iheNelsonline,.  but Nelson,   being  fresh   and   strong,  kept the puck away from   the   danger  point through sheer force   of  strength.  After   several   minutes    play . Sandon  had been scored.' On an off-side Baker  for Nelson scored. Sandon got in another brilliant coinbina;ion play and on  a pass of Howarth to Hood the latter  scored the second goal during the half  for the red and white of Sandon.  The second half opened again with the  TKe Dafnffesf Fruits,  The Freshest-Groceries,  Choicest Smoked Treats  and Canned Goods.

Honeyman, of Nelson, was  married last Sunday to Miss Louisa  Cavendish, of Sandon, in St. Paul's  Presbyterian church at Nelson. The  wedding was to have taken place in this I  city, but the change was decided last  Saturday when the bride left for Nel-_  son to be ready at the nuptials.  The hockey team arrived  home from  Rossland on Tuesday and  the boys are  trying to explain how they lost the cup.  The opinion of many is Sandon met defeat through over confidence among the,  players, who thought all they bad to do  in  the second half  was go ahead and  score instead of playing on   the   defensive.   It was admitted by all in Rossland that Sandon had   the   best   of the  match all through, but used  poor judgment in   governing   the   tactics   of the  game.    Sporting men   in   the   Golden  City offered to put up $500 that Sandon  could   defeat  Nelson,   but the victors  declined to piny unless the amount was  raised to a cool $1,000.   We understand  that this amount has been secured  and  the match, if it cornea off, will bo played  shortly in Rossland, when   one   of   ttie  most exciting  games   in   the annals of  hockey   in   British   Columbia may be  expected. ���������  Corned Beef, Pickled.
