The   Mipses  Boyle, who   liave   been  ,   waitresses in tlie Hotel Reco   for  some  time, have   taken   their   departure for  their home in Los Angeles, Cal.  ��������� Angus Cameron, who with partners  had a lease on some of the Queen Bess  .workings, finished his job and left on  Thursday for his old home in Lancaster,  Glengarry.  jf The lumber business is booming all  over the province and miners are leaving town daily to seek employment in  the woods until the mining industry  takes a change for the better.  Mrs. Fallows and children leave today  for ICaslo on a visit to her niece, Mrs.  'F. S. Attwood, Mr. Fallows accompanies them and will return on Monday  while his family will probably stay for a  couple of weeks.  Ihe Sandon hockeyites were defeated  in Nelson Thursday night bya. score of  -Stol. ThiB came as a surprise, as it  .wns generally considered Nelson would  be easy and the hardest nut to crack for  the home team would bo Rossland.  Clearing the streets of the winter's  snow, was commenced this week. The  change was badly needed as their condition in some places caused many a fall  to pedestrians, who showered maledictions in plenty on our city  fathers.  Lowery's Cairn- ha3 been prohibited  the use of the mails and should have  beon done so long ago. The government  have evidently got tired fumigating the  sack going in and out from New Denver  after each iswue and are determined to  risk no contamination.A  The Rijviuw received a telegram on  Thursday to the effect that the Sandon  rinks were in all the finals at the bon-  epiel, with good chances of winning out.  The ice was in poor condition, but the  boys were confident ol carrying off two  or three trophies and their prizes.  The welcome news reached the city on  Thursday morning from Rossland that  the'Sandon cnrlerfrplayed eight games  the preceding da}'and won the whole  of them. A wire, congratulating them  on their success was immediately sent  back and hoping they would repeat the  ' dose. . '.  ���������?.;7''  The hockey team left Thursday on  their tour for.glory in the hockey arena.  They expect to meet and vanquish the  teams of Nelson. Rossland, Grand Forks  Phoenix and Greenwood. The players  are Jack, Ernie and Rusty Crawford, A.  Grierson, R. Hood and Hoggan. They  will be supplemented in Rossland by  W. Howarth and Rev. R. J. Mclntyre  for their contest with the team of th l  Golden City.  George Mardonakl spent a few days  at the Halcyon Plot 'Springs this week.  Jim Hill returned to the Lardeau  country on Monday after a week's sojourn in town,  Thos. McGuigan^ manager of the  American Boy, was in Spokane a few  'days this week on official business.  Geo. B. McDonald, formerly of the  Noble Five, who was in town for several  days, returned to Nelson on Tuesday.  Mrs. \V. Richards and child lofton  Tuesday for Priest River, Idaho, where  they intend to make their future home.  Rossland has closed down all gambling in the city, and the poker fiends  und blackjack stiffs have been given  notice to quit.  Miss Jl. Flewelling, who has been on  a few weeks' visit with her sister, Mrs.  S. Towgood, returned to her home in  Phoenix on Monday.  J. M. Harris is in Victoria in connection with hia law suit with, the Byron  N. White Company, which is now before the supreme court in session at the  provincial.capital.  Quite a number of ladies went over  to Rossland with the curlers on Monday. Among them \v?ro Mrs. Vallance,  Mrs. M. L. Grimmett, Mrs. Pratt, Miss  Mclntyre and Miss M. Lyons.  The snow and soft weather of the past  week played havoc with the C. P. R.  train service. Passengers fo this city  were compelled to stay over night in the  health resorts of Rosebery or Three  Forks, while the trip to Nakiisp and return took about two days, 'wilh the  wrath of the passengers, hot enough to  melt the snow along the route.  Mr. and Mrs. Jno. McKinnon left on  Thureday for Kamloops. Mr. McKinnon has commenced to fail in health for  some time, although nothing serious,  and it'was thought better by his ���������attending physician to take the matter in time  and that a change of climate would be  greatly beneficial. Kainloops was decided upon and we hope to hear of his  complete recovery to health before long.  H. Giegereh, of Kaslo, paid a visit to  his branch store here on 1'riday.  The Parne mill started up again on  Tuesday, having received a supply of  coal.  The meeting of the Dominion parliament is now said to be fixed for the 12th  of March.  The value of the ore shipped from the  Slocnn, Lardeau and Trout Lake districts during 1902 ia unofficially estimated at $1,500,000.  The city had a deserted appearance  the past week, owing . lo the curlers,  hockyists and others leaving for Rossland and other points.  The Arlington-Speculator company  have plans ready for the treatment of  their own ores and the work of construction will be shortly commenced.  W. F. Newell, ore buyer of the Selby  smelter of San Francisco, was in thecity  this week looking up ore contracts for  his company. Pie offers a .$2 rate and  will take all he can get providing suitable freight rates can be secured.  There was no meeting of thecity council this week. The mayor and half of  the aldermen are in Rossland battling  to secure honors for the Silver City.  Up to the time of going to press this  morning the results of the bonspiel have  not been heard. As most of the curlers  are expected home tonight the" silence  is ominous.  E. A. Cameron, coal dealer, was in  Nelson the early part of the week hunting for coal. He received a car or two  yesterday, and broke the coal famine  for another'spell.  Two picked teams of crack curlers  skipped by J. E. Levering and Rev. Mr.  Robb played a match in the curling rink  on Thursday evening. The former won  by a score of 7 to 14.  A strike of six inches of rich ore was  incountered on the Texas, one of the  Reco group, a few days ago. Work on  lead has only been commenced a short  time and goods indications were met  most of the way.  We received a telegram on Thursday  from one interoHted in the silver-lead  agitation, that Mr. L. Pratt, manager of  tho.Last Chance, hud received a message informing him that Hon.-Clifford  Sifton, Minister of the Interior, had to  abandon his proposed visit to the Slocan on account of being summoned by  Sir Wilfrid Laurier.to proceed to Ottawa. This was a puzzler to us, as we had  not heard Mr. Sifton Intended'to come.  Upon enquiry ..however, we learned that  that the silver-lead delegates when in'  Nelson had forward a despatch to the  Minister of the Interior, who was then  on a trip through Manitoba and the  Territories, asking him to extend .his  tour to the Slocan if possible,  and   see  for himself the present state of the mining situation of the district. In all probability he intended to come, but on receipt of the premiei-6 message had to  change his plans, and proceed without  delay to the Dominion capital.   '���������  Slocan City expects to have a branch  of the newly organized Crown Bank of  Canada established there shortly. All  the, banking of-tlift mines in that section  is at present transacted in Nelson and  the change willgreat.'y benefit the business of the city.  Rev. W. W. Baer, of Nanaimo, will  preach in the Methodift church here on  Sunday, Feb. 1st, and on Monday evening will deliver in the edificehis famous  lecture, entitled, "Six Months in New  York." Rev. Mr.' Baer i������ a pleasing and  foiceful speaker and hip lecture is vividly illustrated with fine limelight views.  This is the rev. gentleman who was  brought before the public as tlie smoking clergyman, and one of the members  of his congregation brought the matter  into the courts, which was promptly dismissed by the judge.  The annual report of fhe Rambler-  Cariboo just issued states that the mine  has about 75,000 tons of ore available on  the dump and in the present workings,  25 per cent, of which is mined and ready  to hoist. Since the financial statement  issued in June, $20,000 have been expended in new machinery, which, it is  estimated, will increase the profits by  $20,000 per month. The present work  includes sinking a shaft from No. 8 to  No. 9 tunnel, and it is expected to open  level No. 9 by March 1st.  ' The Sandon curlers left for Rossland  on Monday to attend the annual'spiel  of the Kootenay Curling Association.  Three strong rinks are in attendance,,  skipped by A. E. Hall, M. L. Grimmett.  and Alex. Crawford, and are confident  the}' will retain or capture some of the  trophies and prizes. Last yca,r Sandon  carried off the coveted Grand Challenge,  All Comers and Oliver Cups, and we  hope to see them retained in the Silver  City for another year. The first was  won by Hall, the second by the rinks of  city which in the finals was also won by  the former. The third was won by A.  Crawford in a.close contest with Billy  Wilson, who has left town.  Grand Forks Wins'.  The Sandon hockey team met its second defeat last night at Grand Forks,  when the team of the Gateway City defeated the Silverites by 1 to 0. Judging  by the score the game was close, and it  would appear that the Boundary team  after scoring played on the defensive  and won out. The home team are in  hard luck and should change their manager, the one they have at presentwould  bring disaster to anything.  Large Values in Lardeau Mines.  The Spyglass property  owned   by J.  Winquist and partners on Poplar creek,  is beyond doubt the richest  silver-gold  proposition that has ever been struck in  that camp,   There is notone of the Lardeau properties that does not carry gold  in quantity from a couple   up to  eight  ounces.   The Cup carries gold and some  of its shipments have been   remarkably  rich in this metal, carrying as biirh as S  ounces.    Winquist's property is remarkable for the amount of gold it carries in  addition to the enormous silver returns.  The assay which   hns   astonished Lar-  deauites  was  3,740  ounces  silver and  $120 in gold or a total   value  of  41,915  with'silver at   its   present   price.   The  property is located about eleven Whiles  from the Lardeau railway, and for five  miles a good pack train has  been   constructed, but  the  other  six  although  brushed is unfit for pack   horses   to   go  over,   Winquist and his partners have  been able to drive about 23 feet of tunnel on the veinj which ranges from two  to three feet in width.   The streak carrying tho above  astonishing values is  about ten inches in thickness, and it is  along this that the tunnel is being driven.   The vein is a strong one  and has  been traced for a distance of over  600  feet.   Work will be commenced early in  the spring and he development of  this  bonanza pushed with'great vigor. THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturbay, January 24, 1903.'  :K  fi.  ml  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JANUARY 24, 1903.  / The silver-lead delegates express sat-  isfation as to the result of their conference with the Dominion Cabinet. Of  course the in misters'were non-commital  in their decision, nothing else' could be  expected, but it is safe to say the unanimous appeal of the country will not  be ignored. As parliament^does not  meet until about the middle of March,  and some time will elapse before the  question or tariff"revision in brought up  oin House and debated on, little change  may be expected in the existing condition of the mining situation of the Slocan, as it is practically assured the mines  will not resume until  there is a change.  Should the government revise the tariff  to meet the wishes of the mine-owneie.  a new era of prosperity will be enjoyed  by the Slocan in particular and the province in general.   We have it  on   good  authority that if the legislation asked is  granted that.extensive development will  be immediately commenced   on a number of the large mines, and that properties   lying   idle  for   years will resume  active operations in a very short while;  that the mines of Slocan are the richest  in lead and carry the highest silver values of any such mines in the world, and  that under   favorable  conditions���������such  as now sought���������the silver-lead industry  would be employing over 10,000 men in  the hills in about three yearn' time, instead of 200 as at present. This is cheery  news for the district and it  hoped  that  it will prove true.   In   this connection  there are other things which would w 11  to consider.   At present there are no refineries or corroding   plants   in Canada  for the refining and manufacture of lead  in its different forma, but with   the  assurance of the home market for refined  and white leads, new industries would  institued   at  once, and it is natural to  assume the new manufactories would be  built in connection  with  the smelters,  and British Columbia being the smelter  centre, the province as a  whole wouid  be greatly benefitted.   The   home  consumption amounts to about 25,000 tons  of pig lead and over 9,000 tons of white,  red and yellow leads used in  the manufacture of paints, annually.    This  has  been supplied by Germany and the United States principally, and   the  galling  part of it to Canadians is that it is manufactured from our own minerals.   It is  certainly time we took a tumble to ourselves and ceased depending   on others  if the country is to prosper, and judging  from the sentiment of the wholecountiy  we are likely to do so before long.   The  BOTTLE BABIES  Bottle babies are so likely  to get thin What can be  done ? More milk, condensed  milk, watered milk, household  mixtures���������try them all. Then  try a little Scott's Emulsion in  the bottle.  It does for babies what it  does for old folks���������gives new,  firm flesh and strong life.'  You'll be pleased with the result. It takes only a little in  milk to make baby fat.  We'll send you alitlleto try, if you likt.  ECOTT   & ��������� BOWNE,      Chemists, Toronto.  Enter the British market on which she  mostly depends. With the home market assured and the preference given  in the reduction of the tariff by the  Mother Country, Canada ought to be in  a position to compete successfully with  all foreign countries. We earnestly  hope to see the proposed changes soon  enacted and with thorn in force a period  of prosperity unprecedented in its history of Canada will sweep through tho  country, in which every province, particularly British Columbia, will receive  their full share.  w  There was a cry in  the   streets.    People  rushed- from   theii  doors   and   strained  their   eyes   on   the  struggling balloonist  fighting   for   life.  Even the poor, panting   sufferer  in  the  sick   room was  forgotten while the family  gazed   breathless   at   this   strange  tragedy of the air.    Then they went back  to the sick room to tell of the terrible  Etruggle for life they had just witnessed.  It did not occur to them that under their  very eyes a more terrible, more pathetic  struggle was going on daily.  There can be nothing more pitiful  than the struggle the consumptive  makes against disease. The greatest  help in this struggle is gained by the  use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It cures obstinate coughs, weak  and bleeding lungs, emaciation, and  other ailments which if neglected or  unskillfully treated find a fatal termination in consumption.  " In 1898 one of my daughters was suffering on  account of a severe cough, hectic fever, wasting*  i  of flesh and other symptoms of diseased lungs,"  I  writes Rev. Joseph H.  Fesperm'an, of Barium  There is every possibility of the Dominion government acceding to the  request of the canneries of this province  to allow the use of traps in  the  salmcn  fishery on the coast.   Premior Prior and  Attorney General Eberts   are   now  in  Ottawa and will strongly urge the mat.  ter at the conference of   this, provincial  premiers with Sir WilfriuLauriei which  takes place   next week.   There is good  reason to believe the Dominion government, from the despatches of the  past  few weeks,  will grant the  requisition  and thus place British Columbia in absolute control of the salmon nishing industry.   The Dominion authorities have  repeatedly refuted   the  demand of the  canners in regard to thu uso of traps, on  tho  grounds    that,   it would    deplete  the salmon entirely,   but it   haB   been  pointed out that the fisheries of the Pu-  get Sound ha /e adopted them and places  the B. C. fisheries in an unfair po.sition,  and now the Fodeial parliament are inclined to favor their demands.   Already  the Americ-ii) canners have taken alarm  over the matter, as the use of traps in  Canadian waters means almost certain  destruction to the lisherieson the Sound  as the salmon have to pass through the  former to enter ihe latter, and it in conceded   that   very   few  fish   would    get  Mm Straits of Euca  under the eircum-  stanefs.    The   provincial canners   are  sure j-o of th-dr demands I hey  are even  now selecting their ground* for trap fishing the coming season, and the  Ameri-  canners are expecting to see the salmon  fishing   pass   from   their control.   Had  the  conditions   been  reversed, Canada  would have found it ont to her cost long  ago.   The   government   is making up,  and it is about time, and  the American  fisheries who have built up a large trade  through  Canadian lethargy,  are likely  to see the work of years shattered in a  very short time.

Gosnell, provincial statistican, and Mr. J. P. Bab-  cock, superintendent of fisheries, left for  Ottawa a-few days ago to confer with Sir  Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues on  several important matters a flue ting the  mutual relations of the Dominion and  the province.  ��������� The  conference   wiil   likely discuss,  among other subjects, the following:  Chinese and Japanese immigration.  The right of the. province  to a greater  share of the revenues arising out of the  Chinese Immigration Act.  The fisheries.  The encouragement of shipbuilding  on the British Columbia coast.  Readjustment of the lumber tariff' in  the interests of the local industry.  Financial relations between the province of British Columbia and the Dominion of Canada.  Co-operation of the Dominion with  the province in the matter of railway  development in British Columbia.  The settlement of the Songhees Indian reserve.  Readjustment of boundaries of Indian  reserves in British Columbia.  The right of the province to administer the minerals under Indian reserves.  The right of the province to the foreshores and-the minerals under the same  The salaries of judges.  Amendment of the Naturalization Act  to prevent  fradulent   naturalization of  aliens, and   several   others   matters of  minor inportance.  Col. Prior received a telegram Informing him that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has  arranged to meet the premiers of the  different provinces at Ottawa on Jan;  27th, and inviting him to ,be present.  Col. Prior will avail himself of the opportunity thus afforded to advocate the  claims of British Columbia, and will  doutlese  secure   the  co-operation and  support of his brother premiers, who  will all have somewhat similar requests  to presp upon the Dominion government  by lending them his sympathy and aid  in return for their good offices.  Platinum to be Developed.  The Slate Creek platinum claim in the  Similkamcen country, owned by Mr.  Blair, of Vancouver, J. M. Bowhead, of  London, and a number of Similkamcen  residents, is to be actively developed in  the spring. Machinery has been installed and the results of experimental  work has been moat gratifying. The  best authorities say that the deposit is  much richer than any found in California. ' Prospects in gold and platinum  run as high as 50 cents a yard, and will  aveiage over the whole ground about 15  cents per cubic yard. In California  claims are considered very .rich when  they average six cents. With the very  rough apparatus* put up for testing, the  average was 22 cents without having  bedrock, where nuggests may be expected. The result has been so satisfactory  that the owners are contributing more  money for development.  /    Canadian Lead, American Refineries.

P. R. whaves, says the  Vancouver; Ledger, awaiting shipment  to Montreal, is a lot of 500 tons of pig  lead, which lias been recently brought  from the refinery in California by the  San Francisco steamers. There might  be nothing remarkable about the shipment were it not for the fact that the  same lead was not many months ago  carried to California by the Banie steamers. Then it was in the. partially prepared condition in which it was sent  from the smelters. The lead is from  ores mined in the interior of B.

The execution took place  in Dawson and was witnessed by a large  number of spectators. Both men were  calm and met death without  flinching.  Fire destroyed a portion of the Kaslo  skating rink last Sunday morning, and  it only with greatest difficulty that the  entire structure was not consumed.-The  blaze started in the office and had made  good headway before discovered, spreading nearly the whole length of the rink.  The ure brigade quickly responded and  through their exertions managed to save  main building. The loss is about $300,  fully covered by insurance.  According to unreviaed estimates by  the Ontario bureau of mine, the nickel  output for 1902 is 5,000 tons, valued at  $2,000,000. Pig iron ia next in value,  worth $1,650,000, to which may be add-  380,000 tonB of iron ore, worth $550,000.  Copper follows in the list, with an output of 2,550 tons, worth $637,000. The  other metals are: gold, 212,500; silver,  $50,000, and zinc ore, $8,000. The only  material increases compared with the  pervious year, were in nickel   and iron.  e������*o������c������������������������������������������������a������������������ee*������������8������i������tsi������te������*������������������������������������e6������������e������<ieo9  i   >,  ' nttttdtan  .I.UU...M ,,~_...... .,T.7/.v.avTw;ra'.i?,VJ<!!|M������'-.w,;r,.

Bar silver shows no sign of life at New-  York, but drags along a   little  river   47  cents.     Lead,   on   the .contrary, .has  shown a steady advance,' and   tho   present    London     market , quotation   of  ������1L lis. 3d. is a gain of   over a   pound  since   the   lirst   of  the   year.     James  Croniii, of the St. Eugene, who has gone  to San Francisco nn a trip,   states   that  if the price of foreign lead rises  to   X12  and the Canadian   lead producers   can  secure the home market for   the   native  product, the. industry in British Columbia will be in a position io resume: operations   ot;   the   old basis.   Mr. Cronin  thinks that   if   the   Canadian   tarilf is  raised so as  to give  tho   adequate protection asked for at the present time by  the Sandon convention, the homo   producers will be able to sell -10   per   cent,  of their output in Canada   at   $3 50 per  hundred, which  is  the   figure   now received by American producers from the  trust.    The reiiiaiiig 60 per cent, of the  iead produced would be sold at Londtm,  and if  ������12   was   the ruling   quotation  Canadian shippers would netul>o"ut$l.70  per hundred.

Rhodesia, or British  Zambesi,   ranks  among the chief gold bearing   countiies  in the world.   The ancients mined  and  carried away enormous quantities of the  precious metals, but undpr the seii'nlfi  . mining system of the* present, day their  operations  will  be   greatly   snrpasped.  IV.ihap"   Tlhode-ia was   the   ancient  land of Opliir, the laiRl of  the   mysterious "King Solnmon'o mines,"  hut  the  theory is strongly combated bv ������ome investigators.    The ancient gold workings  are the basis of modern workings.     For  every   ten   square   miles   of   Uhodesia  there was one ancient   mine;   that    is,  there ' are   seven ty.-iivo7 thousand   odd  holes, which means that a   stupendous  wealth was dug out of the  earth  before  the days of Cecil Rhodes.   Much of. this  wealth must have gone to thenorthand  east; it was probably wrought into   the!  crown of the Queen of Sheba and ���������tilled  the coffers of Solomon.  The ancient smelting furnaces are  still easy to recognize. They are sunk  into the floor. The furnace blowpipes  are made of the finest granite powder  cement and the nozzles of the blow pi pes  are covered with splashes of gold. The  linings of the holes are covered with  specks of gold.. When the first lining  of cement of an .excellent quality which  has outlasted time, was smeared round  on top of the old lining, solit off the old  layers with a knife, and find gold splashes in abundance.'  Apparently the ancients wasted gold  lavishly. Gold has been found in large  quantities in the form of pellets as large  as buckshot in the vicinity of the furnaces, and also thrown awav on the debris heaps outside of the old   buildings.  HTHE   Brooches   here mentioned may offer a desirable suggestion for Christmas  buying.  Each one is of artistic merit  as well as surpassing value.  No. 13320, at $5, is it Star nnd  Crescent design of fine Pearls and solid  Gold.

TJiere was a man standing at the foot  of Third street and gazing acrosis at the  Canadian shore the other day, and ' he  stood so long and gazed so intently that  a policeman finally sauntered that way  and looked him over and observed:  "If you are thinking of suicide, I hope  you will give it up.

'    . ���������  "But you might find wanner places  than this."  " See here, officer: that's Canada over  there, isn't it?" queried the gazer.  "Yes, that's a part of Canada."  "Well, let me tell you that I'm from  St. Joe county, and that twenty years  ay;o, after reading about ti e buttle of  Perry's victory, 1 made up my mind  that Canada ought to be licked."  "And that you'd do it yourself," smiled the officer.  "That's it. Yes sir. I made up my  mind chat I'd do it if no one else took a  hand in it, and I can't' tell you how  much thinking and planning I've done.  "Well, are you ubout ready to begin  operations?"  "No���������o."  "Going to drop the matter?"  "I guests" said the stranger as. he  heaved a sigh and shook his head in a  sorrowful way���������"I guess I am.

When we used to play'at shinny  In the days of long ago,  Now and then some blackened bruises  On our shins we'd have to show.  There was daugcr in the pastime   '  We were ready to admit,  For where shinny sticks were whirling  There was risk of getting hit.  But tho old time sport of shinny  Was a very harmless game  Whon compared with its successor,  Which has "hockey" for its name;  For the lads who play at hockey  Often drop all tho'ughts of fun  And are swift and hard at biffing,  So that triumph may be won.  There's but little risk of damage  To the hockey player's shins,  For each man can take good care of  That small portion of his pin's.,  But when mixing in a scrimmage,  Where the little puck has fled,  Oft a hockey stick is falling  On an unprotected head.  Football hustlers look in wonder  At the rough houte on the ice;  Husky pugilists are saying  They don't play at any price.
