SANDON, B.C., SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1903.  2.00 PER YEAR  TUB PAYp.CON'CBNTRATOR.  Still'Workiiig Day aud Night.  Rumors of Shutting Down   '  Without Foundation.   '  There are/lot of soreheads about the  Payne   in   town   and   it  is amusing to  listen to   the   ignorance   displayed   by  some of them, who tell you they "know  how things nre there."   They  are  mail  because   their   many silly   predictions  have   not   come   Lo pass, and would be  more if they were fulfilled.   Ever since  the Payne concentrator started   up  on  the first of May last the air lias been full  of   rumors   of   shortage   of water, shut  downs, <&c , circulated by those  who  of  course knew all about it,   and   who   in  reality didn't know anything about it.  At the commencement   last spring (.be  mill was given six w.ieks   to  run by the  "knockers," when its water supply was  to give out (?j and when it did not do so  the time was extended.   Even  nowthe  same old off. repeated falsehood has been  freely spread around town, and as on all  former occasion.", happily did   not  take  place.    The mill has now been  running  steadily fur nine months and never was  a shutdown less to bo   thought of than  at   present.    While   all   these   rumors  were going round the mill kept working  ���������   all the time, the  machinery remodelled  for the milling of zinc, and the capacity  of the concentrator increased from 120  to over 200 tons.   Never were these improvements more thoroughly, inovider.ee  the present time.   Even with the short  water supply to be expected during the'  winter   season,   the  mill,  with   steam  power,   is   working   full capacity, and  .  made a record run the past week of 150  tons of tail filling3  in  24  hours.    With  such a good showing uiuh-r nil verse con  ditions,   an .idea  may  be   obtained of  what   can   be   accomplished  in a short  while, when  full water supply will be  fissured.    Despite all thesinister reports  of tbe past year, and to ease (he minds  of those who may have been influenced  by them, we would say there is not the  least prospect of the mill shutting down  or likely to be, iiinesssomething unforeseen happens, for a period of over three  yearB. The coming summer will witness  much activity and many improvements  with the mill as its centre, around  the  Payne, and Manager Garde, was  never  so pleased with the prospects lhan now.  The concentrator is'milling from two to  three cars of zinc per day and as  many  per week of high urade  silver-lead ore.  At the mine there are about fifty  men  employed, the   largest   number  at any  mine   here  at   present, and extensive  development work is being conducted.  In,a short while electric drills   will   be  brought into use; with ample water supply in the spring, sufficient   power  can  be generated from   the  concentrator to  run the mill and fnnish  electric energy  for   the   drills   and   compressor at the  mine.    When the present distressof the  mining industry is   allieviated,  as we  are confident it will before a great while  the Slocan wilh enter  on a  new era of  prosperity under more favorable condi  tions than heretofore*, and tbe coming  summer will lik������ly see a great change at  many of the mines around here, and tbe  Payne, Sandon's old standby, will take  the pla< e it formeily held at the. head of  the list of the Slocan shippers.

This is the largest number  that have been in the hospital for some  time.  P. J.

More attention  was given to bodying their man tluui to  the puck.  CITY COUNCIL. ���������  Standing Committees for the Ensuing Year Appointed.  A complementary ball was given to  Mis8,Julia McDonald in the Miners'  Union hall on Thursday evening. Miss  McDonald, who has been nurse in tbe  hospital for about two years, lnayea in a  few day8 for,her old home in Cornwall,  Ontario. During her residence here  this amiable young lady made mail)'.'  friends who regret her departure from  Sandon. Patients in the hospital always spoke in the highest terms of her  nursing qualities, and among tiie miners  her name was ever coupled only in  words of praise.  The St. Andrews Presbyterian church  will hold servicei Run-lay in Pitts' store  at 11a.m. and 7.30 p. m., when the  liev. 10, Robb, (lie pastor will occupy  the pulpit,. Sabbath school and Bible  class   at 2.30 p. in.  A C. P. R. train hand, named Harlow, had his hand badly smashed 'while  working around the snow plough here  last Saturday. Dr. Power dresf-ed the  wound, set the fingers, and sent fhe  patient to the hospital at New  Denver.  The last of the' curlers arrived in town  last Monday from Rossland. ami the  only souvenirs they brought with them  were four pipes.' They can now smoke,  plan and contemplate how to curl on  slushy ice when they go to play at any  of the surrounding points.  The curlers held a meeting Wednesday evening, when a new schedule of  games was drafted and a committee was  appointed to look' into the matter of  .holding a local bonspiel in the city before long. A,great many of the curlers  who attended the Rossland bonspiel are  anxious to get a chance to curl on good  ice and approched the Sandon representatives who were in Rossland last  week on the matter. ...There is a strong  probability of everything being arranged  shortly, when the tho Bostock and Harris trophies will be put up for competition.  Rev. W. AV. Baer, of Nanaimo, will  preach in tbe MethodiM. church hereon  Sunday, Feb. 1st, and on Monday evening will deliver in the cdifieehis famous  lecture, entitled, ''Six Months in New  York." Rev. Mr. Baeris a pleasing and  foicefnl speaker and his lecture is vividly illustrated with fine limelight views.  The balance of the coterie   of  curlers  who offended the bonspiel at   Rossland  arrived   home   Monday   evening   last.  The curlers one and  ail'express   themselves greatly   pleased  with   treatment  which was accorded  them .throughout  their visit.   In fact the Rossland people  showed   themselves   to be fruely  hospital'and threw the whole town open to  the. visitors. There was only one feature  that spoilt the bonspiel   and   that   was  thc sudden   mildness   of   the   weather  which placed the ice in,the worst possible condition for good  curling,  and  as  a conseqeiice Sandon did not make   the  showing   she would have made   in   all  probability if   the' ice   bad    been  in  proper shape.   Sandon's record was not  bo bad when they managed to hold their  own until they reached the semi-finals,  while in one day's play they managed to  win eight staight  eames. without losing  one during the day. ��������� Probably one of  the hardest  fought  games during the  "spiel"    was  between   the   Hall   and  Boucher rinks   for   first   place   in   U.e  Oliver event which was lost by Hall  to  Boucher by one point.  The first regular meeting of the '-new  council was held Monday evening last.

It.;  I ^  SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1903.  The Provincial Mining Association of  British Columbia,  formed   recentjy   to  endeavor to secure better legislation for  the mining industry from   the   provincial   and   Dominion 'governments, has  commenced an active   campaign   to ob-  tho end desired.   The association  aims  to secure assistance from  every town in  the province, and is composed  of men  of   every rank   and calling.    A convention has been .called to meet in Victoria  on February 25th, when representatives  from the'entire   province   are expected  to be present.     Circulars and campaign  literature as to  their   line of action are  scattered   broadcast over  the province,  and judging from the enthnsiaiic reception the idea has meet  with all  over, a  in mster  meeting is  anticipated.   The  subject was brought up at the  meeting  of the city council, and recognizing that  something should be done to benefit the  all  important mining industry, a delegate is ttiire to be  sent   from   this city.  The   association   is   similar   to the one  formed in California someycara ago and  wan the chief means ol establishing the  mining industry of that state on its present nourishing basis.    Mr. .1. 15.  Hob-  suh, Manager of  the Cariboo Hydraulic  Mining Co,,one of the originators ol the  California association, will give bis valuable assistance towards the success of  the   new   provincial   association.   The  C. P. R. have ottered a reduced   rate of  single fart- for delegates and their wives  for the round trip, particulars coneern-  wbich can be obtained from   tiie station  agents of the company.

SCOTT   &   130WNE,      Clien'iists, Toronto  It now turns out that the paint mixers of Eastern Canada have not only  waived aside all opposition to the demands of the Slocan mine owners, but  will petition (he Dominion government  to revise the tarill' on practically the  same lines as put forth by the western  producers. Evidently the visiting delegates, after placing the facts of the case  before them, got the paint men to consider their action with the desired effect.  When the latter started their campaign  against the resolutions passed by the  mine owners, those in a position   to  do  so, started to do some figuring in the  matter as to tbe amount of money expended on both sides which benefitted  the country. The result of their search  brought to light the interesting fact  one of the mines alone, around Sandon,  paid more money annually in wages  than the entire paint mixers of -Canada  combined. Such a great contrast ought  to have a good deal of inflttnce wilh the  government regarding their decision. -  A company of-Canadians have taken  over the management of the CiIy of  Mexico, and Will control the wafer and  light systems of the Mexican capital.  This is an intimation lo Uncle Sam that  there are other.-* besides himself who  can take a hand   in   the   a flairs   of the  central and south American  republics.  NOTICE.

It is astonishing how little sympathy women have.  for women. In the home the mistress  sees the maid with the signs of suffering  she recognizes so well, but she does not  lighten the sick girl's load by a touch of  her finger. In the store the forewoman  sees the pallor and exhaustion which  mark womanly weakness, but allows  nothing for them.    It is work or quit.

How  Conditions  of the Slocan  Are Looked Upon in  Ontario.  atriotic  a  A r s-?r-.n- " nt   n  own  HCP*  Th" Monetary Times has this interest-  ���������   ing article on   the pilver-leaci industry  which we reproduce: . ���������  The enormous area of undeveloped  silver-lead bearing territory known to  . exist in British Columbia and tlie comparatively small area in which silver-  lead mines have, been developed in that  province, is used by the Kaslo Board of  Trade as one of the basis of-argument  for protection to this industry. Another  argument, and an undeniably strong  one, is the changed condition of recent  years in respect of production and sale.  From information which cornea to us  through private channels we agree in  the conclusion of the memorial that the  industry is threatened with ruin unless  some relief can be obtained by governmental action.1 We give some extracts  from the circular of the Kaslo board :  Lead ores produced in British Columbia were, prior to January'1900,' sold almost entirely to smelters in the United  States, where, even after the high   duty  on lead in ore imposed by that  country  was paid, a margin of profit   remained.  In January. 1900, the American smelt-  infi and Refining Trust absolutely withdrew from purchasing ores in this country, thus closing to our   producers   the  United States market and leaving open  only the markets of the world, in which  the competition of the product of cheap  Mexican and European labor  must   be  met; and the domestic market of   Canada, where the competition   is  equally  fatal, because this American Trust, favored by the existing insufficient   tariff,  now sells to   tlie   Canadian people   the  products of lead mined and smelted  by  cheap Mexican labor, and  refined   and  partially manufactured in bond in   the  United States; and for such   lead   products the Canadian consumer now pays  practically the same prices as does   the  American.  With such competition the domestic  smelters which handle this product can  only pay our producers the European  price for their lead, less smeltingdeduc-  tions and freight charges necessary to  ��������� place it in the markets of the world; the  latter from our geographical position is  necea-arily high; the result being thas  the Canadian producer now receives at  current European prices $1.30 per 100  lbs. for his lead, less smelting charges,  as against $3.50 per 100 lbs., less sfwelt-  ing charges, received by the producer in  the United States.  For such a price and under such conditions, lead in this province can only  be produced at a loss; and even the unusually high silver values carried by the  ores of these districts are sufficient to  offset such loss to provide a fair and  reasonable margin of profit to the producer.  The majority of our silver-lead mines  are closed, and one after the other the  remainder are joining this majority.  The production of lead and the labor  employed have diminished to an alarming extent in the pant two years, the.  former from 31,000 tons of lead to an  estimated production for this year of  less than 12,000 tons, and the latter not  less than 76 per cent.  THE BOVRIL BEARER COMPANY.  spoke of the enthusiasm, patriotism  and promptitude with which'they had  responded to their country's call for  better equipment in this most important branch of the service. The new  company has just been inspected by  Colonel W. L. Gubbins, M.B., the principal medical officer for the nome Disown employes for service with & the j trict, accompanied by Captain Douglas,  Fourth, or City of London, Brigade of i V.C., R.A.M.C. at its headquarters in  Volunteers. The company was inau- j Holborn Town Hall. Tho full strength  gurated   by Major-General  Sir Arthur j of the Bovn'l Bearer Company  was on  London, Dec. 22.���������Acting on the authority recently given by the War Of  flee to form bearer- companies for field  hospital work as independent units attached to each Volunteer Brigade Bov-  ril Limited, the well-known makers of  army rations, and concentrated foods,  have just formed a company of  their  Turner.

'by Surgeon-Major R. E. Wilson. Tha  men were also examined very closely  by Colonel Gubbins upon " first aid,"  and the various modes in the treatment)  of the injured. At the close of the re-<  view. Colonel Gubbins, remarking thatl  he was hot given to flattery, praised!  the new company for its equipment.;  drill 'and general knowledge of tieldi  and hospital work. He i.-losed by siay-j  ing that he expected to be able to n*-]  port tlie organization, after t_ki< ppn;J  am-ual i:s>-pectir>7i, us ono of the !j-_*sJ  l:>'tuer Conipuj.ics in tilt* Home Dls-  uk-i.  Unless an adequate measure of relief I  ii speedily afforded, the lead industry,.'  which has already attained national  importance, must cease to exist, and the  silver-lead camps of British Columbia  wiil of necessity be abandoned, involving the ruin of the communities which  we represent.  The consensus of opinion of the mining, smelting, transporting and general  business interests of these districts, arrived at after much discussion and do-  liberation, is, that relief can only be secured by an increase in the existing tariff'on lead and its products.  One of the strongest features of this  memorandum.ia that it indicates where  changed conditions of the country as regards this industry have not been recognized by our fiscal authorities. One  provision of the tariff'is, in tlie year of  grace 1903, clearly an anachronism.  That namely which imposes a 15 per  cent, upon pig lead, while admitting  carroded lead at 5 percent.���������thuscharg-  ing lower duty instead of a higher upon  a material at a more advanced stage of  production. This will surely be corrected.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  ���������  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon for the week :  Mine. Tons.  SILVER-LEAD.

This district has  gained an almost world wide reputation  for richness and lasting quality us thc  result of the development of such properties as  the   Nettie   L.,   Silver   Cup,  rich ore. This is said to be tbe most  important discovery yc-t made on the  property.���������Liu-dean Eagle.  Useful Knowledge.

It is true that some of these  properties have not'beeii developed to  the shipping stage but they all show  what mining men like to see, namely,  greater values and ore in incri-asing  quantity as depth is attained. This  makes the Lardeau a safe field for investment as well ah- an ultmately piolit-  able one.  Where thc Lardeau has an advantage  over other districts is in the huge gold  values that our ores contain. Although  the ore is in most, cases a galena it invariably carries from $10 to ifSO and in  some cases over *f!00 in gold to tho ton  net. The price of silver is now about  eight cents per ounce lower than it was  a year ago, and we are quite convinced  that this is only temporary, but oven at  the present price for that niclal the net  receipts for the ore from this district  are not much diminished. It means a  big difference in some districts where  tlie ore carries'10 lo GO ounces of the  white metal but hero the ore contains  100 to 1,800 ounces of siives, averaging  200 ounces to the ton. So that combined with tho lead and gold which it  also contains, brings the total value up  pretty high.  Next year a large number of the properties now being developed will be added  to the list of shippers, in a small way at  first, but the chances are bright for all  those named above becoming large producers and dividend payers.  Reports continue to come in from the  various properties that are working  showing new veinsstruck and ore bodies-  widening but the. best report we have  had this week comes from the Mountain  Lion property, where foreman Brown  is said to have tapped another   body of  Then why not get the best to be had in the  country for the money.

Mr. Eberts  was .spokus-  ,    man on the provincial  side   after   brief,  remarks frmn Col. Prior.' The attorney  general advanced the argument in favor  of the, Dominion,  paying   over   to  the  province   all   money. collected   by  the  Dominion fiom.the fisheries since confederation, out-sido of what wns expended bv the Dominion in  the way of protection.   The amount which he asked is  upwards of a million dollars.   The  province also asks the right   10   catch   fish  with traps along the southern coast of  Vancouver island.    Jtwas pointed out  that the salmon could be caught- in this  way before entering. United   States waters.   As it was at present United States  canners list*, traps and   caught   the   fish  after passing from Canadian waters into  those of the United  States,  and^ only a  limited nuinbir reached  the   mouth   of  the   Eraser   to   supply   the   canneries.-  Caiinerynieh, it was said  were in favor  of traps, and   although   the   fishermen  were opposed to them, they would very  -soon come around.    -  Mr. Iiherts also  asked   that  the province have entire control of the fisheries  with the exception of proticlion, which  would remain with   ihe  Dominion, and  would be paid out of   the   revenues  received from   the   same.   No   statement  was made in reply by the   members   of  the  Dominion  Cabinet.

The conditions surrounding the mining industry of .British Columbia���������the  principal industry of the province���������  have become so burdensome that mining operations have ceased to yield a  profit to investors, and capital has  ceased to flow into the country. Efforts  have been made by certain classes in  the community, sometime on behalf of  the mine owners, and sometimes from  delegations from municipalities lo secure relief from the parliament of Canada and from tho legislature of tills  province. All such efforts have heretofore failed, partly owing to tho imper-,  feet knowledge of our difficulties possessed.by our   legislators,   and   partly  we are now with a lot of unjust legislative conditions. A few individuals  mot together to discuss the situation  and devise a remedy, and they started  the California Miners' Association for  the purpose. The idea waa immediately grasped by the working minors, mine  owners, merchant*--, farmers and others,  and the result was that within a very  f abort time the association succeeded in  obtaining all the remedial legislation  they required, und the mining'industry  oft he state increased by leaps and bounds  and brought prosperity to all other industries also.  Tho prime mover iivHhe formation of  the association is Mr. J. B. Hobson,  manager of the Consolidated Cariboo  Hydraulic Mining Co., one of the originators of the California Miners' Association, will lend all the assistance lie can  to make a similar success of the Provincial Mining Association of British Columbia.

CS-IHJO-HiRiaP-I.  mt*axG*ttzinxia?rxMJ9dE*sJMsi*Ksaa*w  a view to overcoming such obstaclesand  securing for the miniiig industry tlie  support which it deserves, itis proposed  to form a large and representative association of miners, mine owners, merchants, bankers, farmers and professon-  al men, and all other persons who may  be directly or directly interested in the  mining industry.  By this means, and apparently only  by this means, ean we secure relief for  the industry and sucli favorable legislation as will restore confidence in foreign capitalists.  If we make the mining industry prosperous, every other industry in the  province will naturally and necessarily  share in Kuch prosperity. The present  depression of nearly all buch other industries is the natural aud necessary result of the depression in mining.  The proposed association is not an  untried experiment. Pome years ago  ��������� the miners and'mine owners of California found themselves hampered   as  when delegates from  all   interior  districts of thc province would be expected  to attend and formulate a  permanent  organization.
