Next week the Liberals of Greenwood  will nominate a candidate for that district, the choice lies between J.Hardy  ono of the pioneers of the camp and  J.R.Brown.  Arrangements are being made by the  Nelson Lacrofise club to haye theSouria  veteran lacrosse team play them. The  Souris aggregation are indeed truly veterans, they having held the Charaion-  ahip of Manitobia more times than any  other club of that province. The members are principally composed of farmers.  A party of SandoniteB are camping  this week at Union Bay,on Slocan lake.  The party is made up of Roy, Mclntyre,  Miss Mclntyre, J. E. Lovering, Miss  Lily Davis, and Miss Adair of Revelstoke.  The Rev. Mr. Mclntyre's Orange ser  mon preached last Sunday, has been the  subject of considerable comment during  the week, it being considered a very  able and impartial address on the subject.

"'Macs"  friends hero will regret to hear of his  departure from the province.  The three-plank sidewalk up Cody  Ave. extending from the K. & S. depot  to Jallands Btore, was completed this  week by D.J.McLaughlan. The sidewalk  just completed was always an absolute  necessity and pedestreins who travel  that way will escape the mud which  they had to wade through heretofore.  The claims recently located by Mike  Kirlin in the Poplar Creek district are  looking up well, a four foot ledge of  galena ore has-been opened up on the  surface, asuaya of samples taken from  the lead gave good returns in gold,silver  and lead.

R. J. Mclntyre, ^pastor.    As a brother  of the   Bociety. he  understood his subject welland gave   a  very entertaining'-.tfnd .instructive, address well worth listening to.   He took  his text from  Dautronomy,   and   dealt  chiefly   on   a remembrance of historic  events, reviewing historybearingon the  the question of British civil and   rohg-  ous liberty and showing the several  attempts the Roman Catholics had made  to bring England again into subjection  to the Pope.    The   Spani������h   Aratnada,  the gunpowder plot and oilier attempts  which had all been,   by   God'������   special  providenee,   total  failures,   while   the  persecution of our forefathers through.  the-Spanish ���������inquisition   were touched  upon.   The constitution   of the Orange  order received the grater share  of  his  discourse.    The aims and objcets were  forcibly   brought  out,     showing    the  order to be founded upon broadminded  and liberal principles.     He  expressed  his regret that all Orang������mi-n were  not  us good as they ought to be,   but  what  society cun lay claim to perfection in itR  members?     Even among Christ's   de-  ���������ciples there was a black   theep.

He next compared the other benefiit  and kindred societies in their relationship to one and another and their influence in the world, and the good the  L.'O.

Yours faithfully,  John L. Retallack.  Chairman Silver-lead Delegation.  Liberals to Meet.  There will be a meeting of the Liberals in the city hall on Tuesday evening  next at 8 o'clock. All Liberals and  others in sympathy with the Liberal  party are cordially requested to attend.  Mines and Mining  Smelter For the Sloean.  It is not publicly known, but the Slocan district has in prospect a smelter and  refining works somewhere adjacent to  its mines. If the parties who are now  in the country looking quietly over  the field with a view to the erection of  both lead and zinc smelting works are  fully impressed with justification for  such works, one will be built not many  miles from 6andon. The people who are  at the back of the proposition are from  New York City and have abundance of  available capital to carry through suc-  sessfully any "such undertaking. We  are not at libei ty to give any particulars  than those already mentioned, but if  the encoaragement looks anyway bright  to them next spring at the latest, will witness the comstart on smelting works of sufficient proportions to  reduce and refine any tonnage that can  bo produced from the mines of this  camp.

The Boundary mines complain of car  shortage to ship their ores.  The Antoine mine in MoGuigan basin  is to have a 1600 foot .tunnel run to tap  that well known property at greater  depth.   Tenders are being called.  The Wakefield,mine will shortly increase its force to 70 miners. Manager  Lane expects to ship 250 tons of ore per  month and will make the first shipment  next week, when the car will be sent to  Nelson..  The idle handroaster at the Trail  smelter will again be in operation in a  few days, followed by the blowing in of  another furnace as the ore is again  being Bhipped to their workc.  The United States is beginning to  purchase large quantities of silver for  Philippine .coinage and if continued  which there appears to be no question,  will be the means of sending up the  price of silver.  B.C. Riblet, o'r'Nelaon.tb.e well known  constructor of aerial tramways and  the largest operator in this line in the  west has obtained the contract to build  the line for the Nettie L. His success  with the Eva and Ophir-Lade and  othors is well known.  Tin was discovered in Alaska about  two years ago. Various samples assayed show no gold of commercial value.  One sample gave metallic tin, 49 per  cent, iron 3.70and copper 3.00 per cent.  Efforts will be made this fall to thoroughly, examine the tin finds to seo if  they can be made to pay.  a hundred or more fine crystals of good  size having been known to project from  masses of sphalerite ore. Joplin calci-  tes are in every important mineral collection in the.world, and in most every  instance they are the pride specimens  of the specie.  Denver House Opened.  The grand opening at the Denver  hotel Thursday evening was a great  success in every way. The house has  been renovated and refurnished throughout and'ranks with the best in the city.  The dining room is in competent hands,  while-in the bar the choicest liquors are  to be found. The real inducement of  the hotel is the cheap rates, $1.00 a day,  making it the onl\r place in town where  such low rates are charged. Nelson &  Co. solicit.a share of the Sandon public  and guarantee the best of treatment.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon for the week :  Mine. Tons.

Editor Mining Review :  Sir,���������Before leaving Ottawa, the British Columbia Silver-Lead Miners' delegation desire to publicly express their  appreciation not only of the action of  the government in acceding to their request for a bounty on lead, but alie of  the unvarying sympathy and consider-  Tlie Last CharJce mine after a years  period of idleness has resumed operations and is now added to the regular  working mines of the district. A force  of ten men were.put to work on Monday  and will be gradually increased as room  is made for them in the workings.  The St. Leon Hot Springs.  The St. Leon Hot SpringB has  been  opened and is now ready  to accorrn; o  date visitors.  The total ore shipments from the  Boundary district mines for the first six  months of this year, from January to  July, inclusive, were 274,266 tons. Although this is not what might have  been shipped owing to the Coke shortage, it is nevertheless a substantial increase for the same period ef last year.  Capitalists of Minnesota are having  their attention drawn to the Poplar  Creek district, the recent gold district,  and reports from private sources state  that a great amount of Minnesota Capital will go into the district if the reports of their representative, who is already in the field investing, are at all  encouraging.  Cannel coal ignites more rapidly than  bituminous, coal,' and burns with a  bright yellow flame, splitting in fragments with a cackling noise. It does  not noil the fingers. At times cannel  coal runs as low in volatile matter as  true bituminous. It is the .richness of  this volatile matter in hydrocarbon oils,  not its percentage that constitutes true  cannel.  The finest crystals of calcite in the  world are found in tho lead and zinc  mines of Joplin, Missouri. In fact,  there is no other known locality where  such enomous calcite crystals are found  and which occasionally run to an amy-  thyet shade, making a beautiful speci-  I men.   Groups of perfect crystals appear  Eskimo Mourning: Customs.  All Eskimos are superstitious about  death, and, although they hold festivals in memory of departed friends,  they will usually carry a dying person  to'some abandoned hut, there to drag  out his remaining days without food,  medicine, water or attendance. After  the death of a husband or a wife the  survivor ruts the front hair short and  fasts fo������ twenty-five days.  A  Contractor.  "What does your father do?" asked  the teacher of the new boy.  "He's a contractor," was the reply.  "A railway contractor?"  "No, ma'am; a sausage contractor.  He ties up the ends after another man  has filled tbem."  ft l3^:������&'ii&JKto&,J���������������������,���������&*'���������i*'">''<'���������','  THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, July 18, 1903.

The iron and steel industries are  on the verge of collapse, yet the Liberal  government stands idly by gazing upon  the impending wreck.   The production  of iron and steel has  been   largely   instrumental in   placing   Great   Britain,  Germany and United in the front ranks  of the commercial world, and it is  from  those   countries   that   Canada derives  her pupply of such commodities.

"Rry as  Statistics."  It is fairly obvious that the study ot'  statistics is not exactly' what would  be termed a popular pastime, says  Winthrop M. Daniels in The Atlantic.  Librarians do not discover any extensive demand for statistical literature.  Sir John -��������� Lubbock, if I- remember  rightly, found no place for a single  volume of figures in his hundred best  books, and in that flood of articles on  "Books That Have'Helped Me, by  Authors Great, and Authors Small,",  the same significant silence seemed to  lie maintained. There. Avere some very  curious books that had apparently  proved helpful to. certain persons, but  there was unbroken testimony of a  negative kind that nobody had ever  been helped by a blue book.  To say of anything "as dry as statistics" is at once to consign It to,tho  nethermost limbo of aridity. Such is  the verdict upon tlie finished statistical product. As for the methods em-,  ployed in constructing such tables-  weighted averages, index numbers or  curves of error���������these to the-wayfaring men are-.hidden and ingenious refinements of cruelty, to bo avoided at  all hazards or at least-forgotten with  a shudder and, a prayer.  "WJiy He Didn't Jump.  Here is one that a young'man who  . knows a good story when-he hears it  heard one railroad man tell another iii  a depot up the line the other day:  "We picked up a new Irishman  somewhere up country an' set him to  work brakin' on a construction train  at 3 cents a mile for wages. One day  when him an' mo'was on the, train she  got away- on one of them mountain  grades, an' the first thing we kiiowed  she was flyin' down, the track at about  ninety miles an hour, with nothin' In  sight but the ditch an' the happy hunt-  in' grounds, when we come to the end.  Ltwlsted 'em down ns hard as I could  nil along the tops, an' then of a sudden  I see Mike crawlin' along toward the  end of one of the cars on all fours,  with his face the color of milk. I  thought ho was gettin' ready to jump,  an' I see his finish if he did.  " 'Mike,' I says, 'for heaven's sake  don't jump!'  - "He clamps his Gngcrs on the run-  nln' board to give him a chance to  turn round an' lookin' at me contemptuous, answers:  "'.tump, iscit?'

A gentleman who is fond of studying  wild nniiiials in tlieir.natural surroundings once had an opportunity of seeing  for himself an example of the cunning  fcr which the fox has become proverbial.  As he was standing near-the bank of  a river one winter day, he saw a fox  run out upon the ice and make straight  for n hole. At the edge of the opening  he s.:opped. turned, followed hia tracks  back to the bank, ran down the stream  itud paused to await developments.  [n a little'while,"a dog came tearing  out of the woods, with his nose close  to the ice and snow. He ran along the  ice with his head down, following the.  scetit until he reached the opening. It  was: then too late to check his speed,  lie plunged into the water and was lost  under the.ice. .        ^  "The fox meantime had .waited in  plain sight to watch the effect of his  little trick. After the dog came into  view the fox remained perfectly mo-  tionless, until he saw his old enemy  'disappear. Then, with a* look on hia  face which seemed to combine a good  'natured grin with a mild contempt, he  went nonchalantly off about his business.  A Cnrlons Taint ot South America.  One of the most curious palms in the  world is called the ita "and is very  abundant on the banks of the Amazon,  Ulo Negro and Orinoco rivers. In the  delta of the latter it occupies swampy  tracts, which are at times completely  inundated and present the appearance  of forests rising'out o-f the water. The  swamps are inhabited by a tribe of Indians called Guanines, who subsist almost entirely upon tho produce of the  tree. During the nnnua! floods they  suspend their houses from tops of tho  tall stems of the palms. The outer skin  of the young-leaves Is made into cords  for hammocks, and the soft inner bark  yields a nutritious farinaceous substance.  The  FolUrt.  The. polka is the natural .dance for  the feet of the people. Take in evidence  its origin. A Bohemian peasant girl  was'seen dancing "out of her own  head." extemporizing from the sheer  joy of her heart song." tune and steps.  This she did on a Suuday afternoon in  Elbeleinitz, and an artist, one Josef  Neruda! who,spied her, made a note of  all he saw. The people of the town  adopted the dance and called it the  pulka, half step. In 1835 it reached  Prague and Vienna in 1S40; thence it  spread rapidly through Europe. When  M. Cellarius introduced it to the Parisians, we hear that all else gave way  before "the all absorbing pursuit, the  polka, which embraces in its qualities  the intimacy of the waltz with the vivacity of the Irish jig."

Tailoring,  We Lead Them All.  Sonthey  on   Wordsworth.  Of Wordsworth, Southey writes,. In  1S08, says Harold S. Scott in The 'Atlantic: "He has written a masterly  poem called 'The White Doe of Rilston  Hall; or. The Fate of the Nortons.' The  poem is incomparably fine. It would  amuse you-to bear how he talks of his  own production. His entire and intense  selfishness exceeds anything you could  have conceived. I am more amused at  it than offended; not being sufficiently  attached to him to feel pain at perceiv-  ;ing his faults, and yet respecting him  far too much on the average of his  "qualities to be disgusted. It is so pure  and unmixed a passion in him that Ben  Jonson would have had him in a play  had he.been his contemporary."  Our Business is vSteadily on the  increase.

A knot of men was gathered In the  smoking room at the club the other  evening. All ordinary topics had been  exhausted, and they finally entered  upon a contest to see who could tell  the most remarkable story about the  fat men or the lean men they had seen.  A veritable Ananias, was awarded  first prize without a dissenting voice  when he asserted that he had met in  his travels a man so thin that he could  "go through a flute without striking a  note."

About one woman in three cannot  wear turquoises without turning them  green. Some turquoises will turn green  after being worn by any woman. Jewelers of'the first class guarantee to replace turquoises If they turn green,  and the annual cost of the replacements is stupendous. One jewel house  has tried the experiment of having all  its employees go around with dozens  of turquoises strapped next to their  skin to try to detect the green ones,  but even when they have passed this  test some of them will be brought back  by customers, having turned a hideous  green. No reason is known for the  changing of color.  ���������The Nobbiest Suitings to Select  S from.  Made iu the fastest Style.  Fit aud Workmanship the Best.
