Gomm, M.D., was'to the front  iigain  last Monday evening ,-t.he champion of another bill against the council  I'or medical treatment.   It is generally  mderstood  the  principal'in  this .case  jilso had   an   hospital   certilieate,   and  should have been treated by tlie hos-  jpital without charge to the council.' In  liny event the subject is capable of paying his own way  and  should  not be a  iburdeu on the city that is ,now unable  J,o pay its legitimate liabilities. 'Butthis  |Gomm,   whose' chief  qualification   for  representation is  his  mouthing,  cares  ,'ittle for this.    He rose up. with a bill of  ���������some $900 a year and  a half ago, on  iwhat he called "smallpox," but- Which  k ������od medical skill and other indisput-  Tablo authority proves was not smallpox,  rand after being created an_alr.ie.rman by  '(Mioi'lent, forces it on  the already over-  ibiirdened   taxpayers, "wh'cti    the  case  hould  have .been treated .-by the' hospital.   He knows all this, and all-the  lonncil know this1 is clearly .illegal, in  [violation of his, declaration of office, the  ���������independence   of   representation;   but  [he   ridicules   opposition    through   his  [mouthpiece,- because his seat-has  not  been attacked.   Is a man to pride himself on being a murderer merely because  iio police authority brings him to justice  ] for his offence ?      :i"  We last week quoted .the law on the  subject, which is clear to every .man who  wants to read, and we now subjoin the  opinion of one Of; the; best lawyers on  the matter:.'."

This Gomm., and  his especialfriendsnre at the council to  carry out the wish of a section of the  people who pay but,yery little taxation.  What taxation he may be instrumental  in creating to please them is a matter  of little moment to them as it will have  to be borne by others. He is there in  straight violation of the law ancl he  knows it, subjecting himself to a penalty  of $50 for every night he sits when disqualification proceedings are pressed.  . It is even, therefore, a question .if his  votes since he pressed his "smallpox"  bill have not rendered his official acts a  violation of the Jaw of the land, and,  therefore, of no account. Wo-tell the  taxpayers, once for all. the consequences  must como out of them, and it is their  business to give the matter the consideration its importance demands. ,  TENDERS.  '"TENDERS will be received up to June30th  8 for the erection of a dwelling house at  Three Forks, also for an ore house.

Surveys "were made on the Donnelly  group the early part of the week.  ���������  The weather appears to have grown  sensible,-and settled down to business  at last.  An engineering party came over the  K. & S. on a special train last Tuesday.  They were on-a' tour of inspection.  ��������� "Win. Walmsley and Jas. Bowes, of  Silverton, have purchased' the Gluepot  saloon iri" Nelson, and will reopen it  shortly.  Mrs: Stein left on Tuesday for Portland, Ore., where her two children are  attending school. She will be away for  some time. - '    .  Mrs. and Miss Hatt, of Vancouver,  who were'the guests of Mcsdames Sewell  and Christie a few days, left on Monday  last for Fredericton, N. B.  Red Paddy has' finished the assessment work on his claims in the Kettle  River district, and says the properties  are improving as they are further developed. He also owns a section of land  in that locality.  A lady lost a pair of gold rimmed eye  glasses the other day some where between tho Methodist church and the  Star concentrator. The finder will confer a favor .by leaving thein at the  Review office or the Star mine.  ;Mr. Grimmett returned on Monday  from the Lillooet country, after giving  instructions for the return of the horses  and mules his .company has packing  ther.e.yHe says'the country out tliere is  .very flat:;;��������� It looks as if/the���������mineral'.was  not exteiiding any .great depth in 'that  coun,try,.y     ��������� '.';;:���������:���������.���������/ y ..-.  ;';Mr, :6. White, of; tlie Star,' -took the  cup won by the::���������"��������� Star drillers at  Nelson a year ago, to Nelson the other  day for coin petition-again. He is authority for saying the Star has some  men getting ready lor the prizes at Nel-  .Bo'ri. attain this 1st July. The first prize  this year is the cup and $125 cash, with  $75 for'second.;..      . ���������  ;.   .  . Johnson the electrician has just completed the assessment work -on a'group  of claims he has at Kootenay Falls, and  states that the properties are improving  as work goes on. The main tunnel is  180 feet in length, and aftercrosscutting  some 40 feet he struck the lead showing  up line, samples of gold and copper;  There are five claims in the group.  We understand that altogether thirteen pupiIs wrote at the New Denver  examination, for entrance to the High  school, three from Silverton, five from  New Denver .and five from Sandon.  None passed from- Silverton, but two  from New Denver and four from Sandon, the fifth getting 90 per cent, of  the required.number of marks to pass.  This surely is a good record.  An exchange sneers at the Mining  Review, alleging it is. not popular with  the miners. ��������� This paper is popular with  all men of sense, regardless of calling  and class, and that is all we care foi\  This paper has always advocated proper  measures for the development and welfare of the country. If we get' these all  classes prosper; if we do not get them  there is nothing for anyone. This is  the long and the short of the matter,  figure ti as you may.  Mr. G. McLeod and bride, who were  married in Edmonton, N.W.T.,,on Juno  11th, arrived in town last Mondav.  They were met at the depot bv a large  number of friends, and later repaired to  the residence of Chas. McLachlan, Cody  Ave., where a sumptuous dinrierawaited  them.:;In the evening they were serenaded by the band. Mr. and Mrs.  McLeod are both from Glengarry, the  young bride being a niece of Senator  McMillan-"of Alexandria, the county  town, and received a cordial, welcome  from the many GJengarrians in Sandon.  With this issue .the Mining Review  enters upon its fifth year.  Dr. Hendryx will be here the end of  next week. His visit may create something new at the Last Chance.  Thos. Brown has received-the appointment of deputy mining recorder for  Sandon.   The selection is a good one.  E. M. Sandilands anived home'on  Thursday from Spokane, where he was  looking after some mining business.  The Denver hotel has lately imported  a parrot that can beat anything in Sandon in talking, with one or two exceptions.  ��������� John Foster, of Three Forks,'is back  from his trip to the Kettle River district. He says times are very dull over  theie.  A public meeting will be held in.the  school house on Saturday, June 29th,  at 12 o'clock,,for the purpose, of electing  school trustees for the ensuing year.  The Payne, is putting a lot of ore  through the Noble Five concentrator as  a test; to see whether or not it will pay  to erect a concentrator at the Payne.  The principle business transacted at  the council meeting on Monday evening  was electing a City Clerk, passing a few  accounts and holding some over for  future consideration.  D. J. McLachlan received word on  Thursday from the Educational Department at Victoria that his tender for the  painting of the Sandon public school  hadbeen accepted. He will commence  as soon as the school closes for the  midsummer holidays. :.'.���������,   - /  The Ladies'Aid Society of the Presbyterian church gratefully acknowledge  the hearty and substantial assistance  rendered., by-the people "ol'.Saridon- in  making their social so s'uccessful;v ���������Especially to those "bright; young ladies  who so ably helped in the ' entertainment, -they ;desire; to express their  thanks.;     y ....... ...y ..,.-,.:.  ��������� Gillie McLeod has reeeived the-con-  traet for driving two tunnels in the  Mountain Con. He commenced work  on one this week and at present has six  men employed. Work will be started  Ori the other probably next week, when  more men will be; taken on. Mr. H. C.  Riehle. the new manager, arrived here  from London, Enjr., a jew days ago and  is looking over the property. Tt is expected the English company who own  the mine, will shortly send out a mining  expert to thoroughly prospect the property.   .'".'.  Mr. Irwin, teacher at New Denver,  thinks the remarks of the Review, anent  the High school entrance examination  at New Denver, are calculated as a reflection on the work done in the New Denver school. This, however, is not the  cane, as it is'well known Mr. Irwin is a  very successful teacher. It is, of course,  more to Mr. Irwin's credit that all his  applicants were younger than the applicants from Sandon. We cannot, however, believe there is ground for Mr.  Irwin's insinuation that by some means  or other Mr. Lovering. the Sandon  teacher, was enabled to give his pupils  many of the examination questions  days in advance of the examination.  Every word in the Review was nevertheless strictly correct.  An enyoyable ice cream social was  held in Crawford's hall last Thursday  evening. The room was comfortably  filled by young and old, the old being  young for the occasion. In addition to  the refreshments, conversation with all  that the word implies, when the young  people have their best girls with them,  or as tho Irishman puts it, "It is nice to  be alone.especially when yere sweathart  is wid ye." was the special feature of  tlie evening. Vocal duels were rendered  by Mrs. Cliffe and the Rev. Mr. Ferguson, by Mrs. Cliffe and Mr. Fallows and  congregational singing by the whole  assembly. The entertainment was under the auspices of the Ladies'Aid of  the Presbyterian church, and the proceeds are to be applied on church debt.  How Our Finances Stand.  To be more precise, we give the city's  financial situation as follows:  Now due sinking fund $ 2000 00  Gomm's smallpox account  900 00  Water account,' last vear  1281 00  Loan  1500 00  Other notes  75 00  April accounts  720 20  May        "   '       541 14  June       "        , so far  455 00  Electric light  300 00  Table  25 00  June ace. yet to come in, say... 75 00  Total  $7872 34  Against this there are:  Real estate taxes, last year ....% 2633 00  Other small revenues unoaid ..       50 00  Total     2(583 00.  Thecity is, therefore, financially behind by $5,189, put it any way you will;  It is wrong to hypothecate any of. the  revenues of the next six months such  as liquor licenses to meet any portion of  this, as that money will be required withe next six months' running expenses.  Proper book-keeping would offset Harris' old bill of $1281 by an equivalent  amount of his last year's taxes, and  leave the balance of last year's taxes to  credit for debenture sinking fund. It  would not, of course, alter the net liability, but itjwould place matters in a  more creditable-light. What, we ask is  to be thought of. promising to increase  ,some salaries and paying much' more  for others vthan '.the work can be efficiently done for ? We leaye.;the situation, figures and all,for the taxpayers to  think over, yyy ..y,.,y;yy'"',,;',., y'.;  yFrom this picture it :is?,quite; evident  to every one there 'is but one of three  courses open to the council of Sandon,  increase the taxes, cut down salaries  and other expenses, or go into liquidation. We shall see which course will be  taken. As the; fealty was taxed last  year to the highest limit of the law,  nothing more can be done in that direction, so that reducing salaries and expenses or liquidation alone stares the  citv in the face.  Wm, Stubbs is in Nelson this week.  Root. McDonald was in Nelson on a  visit for a few days this week.  >Ore shipments jrom Sandon this  week.areas follows: Slocan Star, 102  tons; American Boy, 20 tons. ���������  '.'������������������Many, people are at a loss to know who  ran do the most mouthing, W.E.Gomin,  M.D., at the council meetings or Nelson's parrot.   '  The Diamond Mining and Smelting  Co. will commence work shortly with a  few men on two claims they own between the Ruth and Ivanhoe mines.  . The painter and paperhanger are busy  putting one of T. Duffy's cottages in  order. -Wonder if this has any connection with wedding rumours. Rumour  says "sure."  There was a meeting of the Grand  Lodge of the Masonic order held in Nelson a few days ago. H. H. Pitts, M. L.  Grimmett, and T. Brown were those  who attended from  Sandon.  Antonio Maurin, an old timer of this  city, left Thursday morning for the  Sandon, where he has bought out the  interest of Mrs. Mallette in the Denver  hotel, and where he will in future reside.���������Nelson Miner.  All the section men on the C.P.R. he-  teen hero and Vancouver are out on  strike. The men are certainly entitled  to better wages than they are getting,  but with labor so plentiful as it is now,  it is a poor time for a strike.  Sandon surely has no reason to complain with so many births and mar-  riagee, both past and prospective. Another wedding in the near future must  be contemplated, as is evidenced by the  hunting up of all the old shoes by the  boys to be in readiness.  i WAMIUJ!UWM������MtlU������IR M*4M*i*AMV..M1taUta4������.<  "mvwmw.'^'iwJg  tttW������iaUX^M3!W/(KWi*M^^lm"i���������i&&ii$imi&ii':  '"���������"���������"��������� ���������������1  o  '���������������������'���������' . ������������������.��������������������������� ������*  **.' -������_."- ������������������    "���������     _   ��������� ���������".���������'������������������'������������������*���������  CO  ���������������  ���������   I  STEAMING- PLANTS.  A woman famous among her  friends for thrifty house plants  ascribes  her  success  to  her  practice  Watermelon Cake.���������This cake consists of two parts, the white and the  red. For the white part take two  cups of sugar and one of butter; beat  them to a cream, add a scant cup of  sweet milk, the whites of six eggs,'  two teaspoons ��������� of cream o' tartar,  j one of soda, or three level teaspoons  of baking powder, and three .and 'a  half cups of flower. For the red  part take one cup of red sugar,  which 'may be obtained at a confectioner's or a drug store, and half a  of steaming them. ���������'Whenever they icup of butter, a third of a cup of  begin to  droop  and  look as if they |milk,  two  cups  of flour,   the  whites  needed  'toning up' they got a treatment,"   sho  said  recently.     She has  a row of hooks    arranged    on    the  bathroom    wall     over  the  tub  and  from    these     suspends  tlio  pots   by  strings  to   within    two  fee't  of  the  water,  the plants having previously  liad a, thorough watering.    The door  and window are closed with the exception of a 'narrow crack left at the  ��������� top of one of tlie latter, and the tub  ��������� is  filled  with  water  hot enough  to  allow a gentle steam to rise and per-  , vade the  atmosphere.     In this posi-  4>. tion the plants arc left for an hour,  and  tlie   operation  is  repeated  until  they  aro  restored  to   health.     This,  of course,    can    only    be done in' a  room with painted walls, as the constant steaming will loosen paper.  If  tire  cause   of   blight  is  a  worm  of four eggs, a teaspoonful of cream  o' tartar, half a teaspoon ,of soda,  two level teaspoons of baking powder, and one teacup full of stoned  raisins. , Take an oval pan, or if you  have none a round pan will do, line  it carefully with buttered paper, and  pour in a little over an inch in  thickness of the white* cake. Line  the sides with the remainder, making  the thickness of the white cake uniform everywhere with the bottom.  Pour the red cake in the centre. It  is better to , have two persons at  work in filling the cake mould, as  there is some- difficulty in keeping  Lhe red and white layers apart, at  the sides. Baked in a melon mould  and iced thickly with icings colored  with spinnach green, or white icings,  in which, half a cup of finely chopped  at the root, the steaming will not jpestach'io nuts have been stirred,  avail, ancl, according to this sue-'  cessful gardener, an investigation is  a simple matter. A plant of average size can be removed from the  pot by turning it upside down, holding the base of the plant firmly, and  letting the ball of earth fall sinto the  hand. A gentle tapping on the side  of the pot will facilitate this. Usually the worm will be found near  side of the pot.  If, however, it '; cannot be seen,  another ..test can be made. A round  stick with rough edges���������or, . better  yet, a 'round rile���������pushed into the  soil close to one side of the pot, and  gently turned so as to produce a  soft grinding sound, will after'several minutes drive the worm' to the  surface. The experiment is one sure  to entertain children. "There! Tell  me a worm doesn't think!" said a  woman the other day as a long  slender angle-worm wriggled out of  the pot to the floor. This method  is not unknown to boy fishermen,  who. employ it in the soil to call  forth  the  bait.  Few people meet with success in  the care of fern balls, and this is  probably due to two causes; either  cheap ones aro bought, or they are  not kept wet enough. Once the  roots suffer from lack of water the  fate of the plant is sealed. Like all  plants which arc surrounded on all  sides by the air, thny should have a  large quantity of water. A good  plan is to arrange a hook over the  shelf in the butler's pantry or some  .similar place, ancl every morning fill  the sink with tepid water, plunge the  plant in it and soak it for ten or  fifteen minutes, and a longer time  will not hurt it. Then hang it on  the hook over the sink and let it  drain thoroughly before returning it  to the window. The fern ball wants  plenty of light, but no direct sun.  it should j:ever, even in the summer,  be hung out of doors/because it  does not take kindly to draughts.  tested in-: CI PES. "  Creamed.

Slip  them from the tin with a knife to a  hot Dlatter and serve at once.  this cake is very 'ornamental  Soft ginger cakes aro made as follows:  One cupful of molasses, one cupful  of sugar, one cupful of butter, one  cupful of sour cream, four eggs, one  teaspoonful of soda, one tablespoon-  ful of' ginger, and flour to make a  still batter.    Bake in small,pans.  IT HAS "BEEN NOTICED���������V  That some cooks beat eggs on a  soup plate, using a fork instead of  a whisk.  That in making fish balls, croquettes, etc., an agreeable flavor is imparted by putting a whole clove in  the article to be fried and removing  it before serving, as it would be unpleasant to bite into the clove. Extract of. clove may be used instead,  but it does not impart quite so fine  a flavor.  That.butter or cream may be substituted for olive o'J in almost any,  recipe if the tnste of the oil is dis-'  agreeable.  That eggs can be beaten more  quickly'.and will stand up better if  a pinch of salt be added.  That a croquette 'mixture, may be  dropped into hot fat in small quantities from the end of a spoon and  will be found nearly as nice as when  moulded into shapes, which requires  so much  time ancl cure.  In using gelatine great care should  be taken that it is thoroughly dissolved. It is a good plan to strain  it through cheesecloth.  Less gelatine is required, if it is to  stand over night before using than  if needed as  quickly as possible.  If it is desired to cool gelatine  jolly very ./quickly the dish which  contains it,may be placed in a pan  of cold water, to which some rock  salt has been added.  In separating eggs be careful not  to let any of the yolk become mixed  with the whites, as they cannot be  beaten, as well.  Moulds should always be dipped in  cold water before the jelly is poured  in.

LIGHTING PU NIAGARA.  The   Effect  at Mght  Ik   More   Inspiring  Than In Daylight.  n ' .'  'An experiment made a little while  ago at Niagara Falls proves that it  is possible- to illuminate the -great cataract so perfectly that the scenic efT  feet Ls even more awe-inspiring than  im  daylight.  A complete   marine search-light apparatus was Bet up  in  a large box-'  car.   A little marine engine, attached to the search-light, was operated  by steaim from the locomotive.        '  Theniigbt was very dark and cloudy  when the operator adjusted bis ihir-  ty-inch lens to the ��������� brink of the  Horseshoe Fall and turned on his .hundred thousand candle-power light.  Suddenly the great cataract was dazzling. Ihe monster ico formations,  the. stalactites' and the stalagmites  surrounding the Horseshoe were radiant Ln the. strong white light. The  mist rising from the gorge looked like  myriads, of diamonds.  After testing the light at Falls  View station the car was run down  opposite the American Falls, where  an equally successful test was made,  tho features of the scenery being  brought out even more strikingly  than i,n ssunlight, since the surroundings wexa hidden in darkness. Of  course this light had to be operated  from a fixed plane, in this, case the  ���������road-bed of -.the railroad. When it can  be' placed ul varying elevations', and  describe more of an arc, the results  arc expected to be still more satisfactory.  This opens a new field for railway  enterprise. Probably before many  years leading lines will illuminate  picturesque places along their routes.  The Grand Canon of the Rockies will  bo strung with electric'-lights. Observation-cars on night trains will be  crowded, and it. will become part of  the duty of porters! to wake up passengers who wish to see the Horseshoe Curve at one a.m;, or Lake Michigan at midnight.     .  .  ��������� ,  SPECIAL .TRAIN TO  SAN  FRANCISCO,  For Canadian delegates and all  others going to the Epworth League  Convention, via Chicago and North-  Western Railway, to leave Chicago  Tuesday, July 9th, 11.59 p. m.

GBEAT HARDSHIP AND EXPOSURE ENDURED.  -**-  EPITAPH AND PUN. -.,  One evening at a simall party which  included the two friends; Douglas  Jerrold and Charles Knight, the author-publisher, the talk turned oh  epitaphs.

Burns, however, has  not ��������� always   enjoyed   this    vigorous  health, and   while   chatting recently;,  with a representative of the Lunenburg Press, he said ho believed   that  but for the .timely   use of Dr.  Williams' PLnk;Pills he would have been  a chronic    invalid.      "From   1895  to  1898," said Capt. Burns, " I was the  victim of a complication of troubles',  I suppose  they  had   their origin  in  the hardship und  exposure I so frequently had  to undergo.   My'illness;  "took tho form of dyspepsia and kid-  piey  trouble.   The (foods .which I ate  did' not agree with," me, and frequently gave tae a feeling of nausea and at  other times  distressful pains in  the ,  stomach.   Then I was much troubled  with pains in  the  back due  to  the  ������������������kidney  trouble.   Finally  I took a severe cold  which not only seemed   to  aggravate these  troubles  but  which  seemed   to affect my spine as,'well,  and I became partially, rigid in   tho  arms and. legs.   I was forced to quit  work, and  doctored for a time with  little or no benefit.     Then I dropped  the doctor and  began  taking   other  medicines, but with' no better result  By this  time I was run   cown   very  much', had no appetite, and was depressed both in mind' and body.  .While in-this condition I chanced to  read in a newspaper the testimonial  of a cure-made by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills,' which in some respects presented symptoms like my  own. Tho. straightforward munner in  which the litory was told gave me  now. hope and I determmed to .'try  these, pillsl. I sent for three boxes.  Of course ,1 did not expect that this  quantity /would cure me, .'but I  ���������though it would probably decide  whether they were suited to my case.  ������' must say they seemed to act like  magic, and before the pills .were  gone there .was a decided improvement in my. condition. I then got a  half dozen 'boxes more and' before  'they were gone I was back again at,  [work in the; shipyard, and enjoying  once more the blessing of vigorous  health. This wtas in the s'p'ring of  1898, and since that time up to the-  present 1 have not been laid up with  illness. Occasionally when suffering  from the effects of exposure or over  wx>rkl.tal&e a'box or two of, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and they always  put mfc- right.- 'Since my own mar-  vielloius rescue' from premature usc-  lessness and stiffcring I have recommended these *pills to many persons  variously afflioLc-d and have yet to'  hear; of the f urst instance where they  have failed ' to give good results  where' they; were  fairly  tried.'

' So-mo time ngo a correspondent had  occasion tovisit Hayli, and while thero  ho saw a spectacle which he is not  likely ever to forget.  . Celebrations in honour of the President's birthday wore in  .when the Britisher landed. Perhaps  the most interesting of these was the  review of the Haytian army at the  Place deef Armes, and the march of  the troops, through the streets of  Jacmel.  ���������There was' mo attempt at keeping  step on the part of the soldiers. Some  of them carried carbines, others  gwo-rds, some sticks, and many of  them were too lazy to carry anything  at all.   The officers  rode  on   cither'  imules or asses, and some of them appeared aa if they stood very much  in need of a lesson in riding. The rank  and file chattered freely as they  trudged along without any shoes on  their feet. Many of them, indeed,were  only partly dressed.  Tho officers and some of the men  who wanted to look.like soldiers, wore  tho cast-off coats of privates.and sergeants attached to different regiments in the armies of Britain, America, France, Germany, Russia, Spain',,  and ether countries. Most of the uniforms seen on this occasion were British, and the red coat seemed to predominate, giving one the impression  that a big trade was don'o between  the military authorities of Hayli and  some old clothes shop proprietor in  ���������England. If military representation  of the various uniforms of the armies  of civilized counbries count for anything, then the Haytian Army must  indeed be ranked as  the only rcpre-  '    HE KICKED HIMSELF.

V  THE MINING, REVIEW���������Saturday, Junk 22,   1901.  ,:   t  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1901.  '    PROTECTION VS. FREE TRADE.  Cobdenism, or the idea of making  Great Britain the workshop for the  world, undoubtedly had considerable to  recommend it in Cobden's time, in so  far as Great Britain alone was concerned; but it had little application  when applied to the world at large:  Great Britain was in Cobden's time  specially situated for the establishment  of Free Trade, though time is showing it  is not even the success there, that he  and his disciples at the time anticipated  it would be.  At that time outside of Germany,  Great Britain bad but few competitors  for the world's trade. She had great  stores of coal and iron lying side by side  in the earth, any amount of cheap  money, plenty of cheap labor, the most  perfected machinery in the world, and  but few competitors. She was at the  time in especially good form to defy the  world; but she has not succeeded in her  defiance, and her inability to capture  and retain other markets, proves conclusively it is circumstances, and not  theories, that mark the proper course  for any and all countries to take in the  producing line.  The United States protective tariff  was in the days of Cobden but in its  infancy. Since, however, it has managed to supply most of home demands,  and to enable America to become a large  exporter to many of the English colonies and even to Great Britain herself.  A high tariff enables France to pay off  most of its war debt by the manufacture  of beet root sugar; it hasenabled Canada  to become an exporter of many lines of  agricultural machinery, printing paper  and several other lines of manufactured  goods.  If we bring the matter nearer home,  it is admitted even by Free Traders that  if this province is to prosper as it should,'  we must have protection to lead and  other manufactures. There is no disputing the fact that protection for a  time at.least enhances the price of the  manufactured article to consumers; but  these prices decline again as the manufacturing facilities ��������� become improved  and the industry becomes extended.  Manufacturing always, however, creates  a market for labor, agricultural production, and other lines of manufactures  consumed by a manufacturing community, ancl so the operations go on. It is  not on the theory, that protection for  the time being enhances the cost of the  manufactured article, that a country  must go,but on the geneaal results after  protection has been freely vand fairly  tried. \  FINANCIAL.  There are threeer four representatives  at the council board that are anxious to  see the affairs of the city properly  financed, but for the welfare of tlie place  we are sorry to say they are being constantly over-ruled. Souie people think  that as long as their feelings and wishes  are being gratified, all ia going along  well; but it is for the property holder  who has a stake in the place and whose  effeefs will be held for bad legislation to  take a more serious view of the matter.  On the 1st of January there was practically no floating debt on the place  that  was   aot  covered  by taxes due.  FAT   AND,  LEAN  That is, babies: fat, they are  happy and-safe; lean, they are  neither happy nor safe.  ��������� Apart from being entirely  healthy or not quite well, a fat  one has much reserve of vital  strength to resist any sudden  attack, while the lean one has  little or no reserve.  The way to be fat and well  is Scott's emulsion of cod-liver  oil. A little: only a little.  Not any, if healthy and plump  already; "let well enough  alone."  We'll send you a little to try if you like.  SCOTT & BOWNE,   Chemists,   '        Toronto.  There was the city hall, but its cost was  provided for by an appropriation.  Taking into account the note in the  bank for the flume, and other notes, the  April, May and June monthly payments, and the total liabilities are not  now short of $8,000.  Add to this the cost of repairing the  sidewalk from G.. W. Grimmett's to  Folliott's, which the city will certainly  have to repair,and the total debt imminent is not much short of $8,500. Against  this there is a possible $3,000 for licenses  iu July and $2,SCO of last year's taxes  unpaid. There will then be well onto  $5,500 of the first half year's debt to  carry, with $500 to $G00 of a monthly  liability, or a total of $9,000 considering  interest on debentures to meet out of  realty taxes-and small revenues.   The  Sff  amount cannot be met. Let us again  consider faith is broken every day with  our bondholders, in that no provision is  made for a sinking fund,and what is the  outlook?  The place is necessarily an expensive  one to handle; the creek is constantly  causing expense, all wages and supplies  are high, and with-the realty held by  one or two parties, revenues are light.  In the face of this many members of  the council are prone to pay much more  for work than it can be done for, merely  to meet a sentiment, and accounts are  put through without proper scrutiny, as  if money was no object. .A day of reckoning has to come, and it the people  who own the realty of the place are not  wise in time the consequences must rest  upontlieni.

When the stomach is diseased it may  affect many other organs,' and produce  all the evidences of diseased heart, diseased liver or kidneys, or disease in  some other organ.  The inexperienced  practitioner treats  the wrong disease,  aud hence the constant statement of  Dr. Pierce's corres  pondents:  tors could not help  me."  Doctor Pierce's  Golden Medical  Discovery cures  diseases of the  stomach and organs of digestion  and nutrition. It  increases the assimilative powers,  and purifies and  enriches the blood.  When diseases of  organs remote  from the stomach  are caused by the  stomach, the cure  of tlie stomach results in the cure  of the other diseases, in heart,  lungs, liver, kidneys, etc.  "Six years ago niystoninch and heart troubled  tne so much I had to do something', as the  doctors could not. help me," writes Mrs. S. A.  Knapp, of Sau Jose, California, Box 392. "I  went to San Francisco nud liad treatment for  catarrh of the stonwich, and was better for  some time, then it came back. I.then used  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and  'Pleasant Pellets,'. These medicines cured my  stomach. I do not have the pain aud indigestion as I did. It is very hard for me to tell you  what I suffered before I commenced taking  Sour valuable medicine.   I recommend it to all  le sufferers whom I meet."  To cure constipation use Dr. Pierce'a  Pleasant Pellets. (    ���������   '���������  If ever there was a political crook in  this country it is Houston,of the Nelson  Tribune. He is now endeavoring to  show that the taxation of mines in some  of the States to the south is higher than  that of British Columbia, ergo the latter should shut their mouths' and go to  work. When he is comparing taxation,  why is he not man enough to ��������� compare  the costs of labor, the length of shifts,  costs of powder, machinery, &c, &c, in  both countries? When tin's is done  compare outputs and values of returns;  As half the truth is often a whole lie, so  half a statement may often be more  misleading than a whole ono. The mine  that pays $4.00 per ton for mining may  often make more out of its output than  the one that pays but $M.00. All of the  circumstance in both countries must be  compared before there is any Hi ing to  lead to conclusions.  IDr\ nVToir-apisorJ  IDen-tist/.  Cor.

Perhaps it.may  be news to him that in those two years  because of the low price there was but  little shipped, the total value from the  whole province for the two years being  but $248,780, while the next'year, when  the price went up, the total shipments  ran over $533,000. It may also be noted  in those years there was a 10 hour day,  when the owners got 20 .per cent, more  work out of their men for the expenditure than they get now.

It would not be out of place now to ask  the Tribune if it has proved,satisfactory  either to the owners, the miners or the  business people. Has it brought more  money to the country?

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, Jdne 22,   1901.  lyons is the City CM.  At the council meeting on Monday  evening   Mr.  Lyons was   chosen   City  Clerk.   There were   four applications.  One of which received  no votes, that of  Mr. Martin was withdrawn;   Mr. Martin was the choice of Aids. Gomm and  /Duffy, but when it was seen there was  going to be a three  cornered  contest,  and a chance.for Cliffe, in consequence  Martin's   application  was   withdrawn.  Anything ,to down  Cliffe,   for  in   the  classic language of the immortal Duffy  "he bucked. the union."    We have not  one word to say against. Mr. Lyons as a  man and a respectable citizen.   He will  no doubt keep all the ledger accounts  correctly, but he was an American citizen up to a few weeks ago; and is wholly  unacquainted with Canadian usages and  British Columbia municipal law.   The  Aldermen are perhaps as intelligent as  any equal number of men in any other  country town, but they, also are wholly  <ni3xperienced.   The majority was, however, willing to pay Mr. Lyons', with his  inexperience, some hundreds of dollars  more than an experienced man would  'do the work  for.   It will  be said  the  council want the Clerk's whole time,  ,bnt neither Mr. Lyons nor anyone else  /can give It is whole time for $G0 a month,  nor is it necessary. Any competent man  t can do the work properly' in one hour a  day, and to pav more than suitable remuneration  for  the   time, required   is  simply a waste of public money.   The  I consequences will bring one of two results, either the solicitor will have a  big bill for work the Clerk ought to do,  or the city will be enveloped in litigation.   We <iak the taxpayers to watch  things'and seevwhich  will  happen.   In  any case it means unnecessary heavy  taxation; and   it  remains to be.' seen  what the tax payers that have already  great difficulty in  making things meet  will have to say aboufc it next elections  and   before    Some  of   the Aldermen,  'notwithstanding   their   declaration   of  office, think, they are there to legislate  for the Miners' union.,  It is  safe to say  tliere are not more than a dozen union  men voters, that union  men do not pay  10 per cent;;of the taxes of the place,  and that the sensible men of the fraternity have no desire to see union and  city matters   mix.     Of    course    there  are   always'   a   few  ' men    in    every  organization  who are batant;   but lo-  qnocity never pays taxation. We simply  ask the taxpayers to watch matters.

T. a BROUGH, (Jen. Manager.  SOON GOT RID OF THE PATIENT.  One of ray patients, said the hard-  worked doctor, was a fussy old lady  who fancied herself afflicted with every disease under the Bun. One day  I chanced to meet her in the street  when she immediately began to run  through a long list of complaints  from which she believed herself to he  suffering.   J. was in a hurry, as'    an  important ca.sm was waiting for my  treatment, and I resolved to teach  this old fidget a lesson. First I  took her huad and felt her pulse. It  was in spl'endid condition, as I expected. Then I told her to close her  eyes and put out iher tongue., When  she had done this I stole off on tiptoe and turned the first corner. How  long she remained in this attitude I  can't say, but since then she has never troubled m'o with her. imaginary  ailanjenifc.  It 'fever Failed but Kepi Steadily Supplying (lie Soldiers in Soul It Africa-A  ������rcat Sli-afn for Tills Jfoble Corps,  With' tho end of the South African  campaign apparently (within sight.tho  country has already commenced the  bestowal of , its honors and rewards',  says the London Express. It has 'been  a hard-and anxious struggle, and the  men who have been at hand-grips with  the foe deserve, full recognition, of  their valour'at the; hands' of a grateful nation. '    i  But tho Eupreme attraction of the  battlefield is. not unlikely to contribute to an injustice against which  wo should be on our guard. For a  long time now our strained attention  ha.s been fixed upon 'the South African veldt, where so ."many of our  friends have fallen. Wc have watched  with eager interest and admiration  the achievements of our special heroes  ���������Rundio, Hunt ear, French, the valiant  men of the English shires and of  the great colonial Empire over seas,  and many another gallant name, resolved that whom Lhe happy day arrived they should not lack their reward,        i  But there is one corps of which the  country has never heard the name.  It has ucver been named in despatches  or hold up to public applause and approbation by .ubiquitous specials, but  nevertheless, it has fcnught on against  heavy odds unknown and unrecognized, doing work in default of which  Great Britain could not have maintained herself against her fees, and  must have los.t her place among tho  nations.      I  This, corps' is Sir Henry Bracken-  bury's, which has fought the war  from the Royal Arsenal at Woolwich.  They have worn no 'uniform or insignia but their shirt sleeves, and  their only weapons have been their  hard, toil-stained hands, with which  they have done a service to the country which it would bo very difficult  to overestimate. Few people, indeed,  realized the peril of our position- at  the outbreak of this miscalculated  war. Short of ammunition,stores and  equipment of nearly every kind when  tho struggle was actually upon us,  had it uot been for tho heroic and  almost superhuman exertions of the  Royal Arsenal disaster and defeat  could have been our enly portion.  ; THE ARSENAL NEVER FAILED. ,  ilt was neck or nothing. An unprecedented effort was called for, aud,  as Sir Henry Brackenbury said with  all solemnity at the recent Arsenal  dinner in London, "Thank God, gentlemen,  the Arsenal never  failed!"  The men were exhorted by their  chiefs to rise to. a great occasion, and  work as though' upon the individual  exertions of each one depended the  safety of the: great army in South  Africa. Right nobly the workers responded to the call. Not a man or  boy but felt that his labours would  contribute in a material degree to  the success of the struggle1" in which  the country and 'hia "pals" at tho  front were engaged.. They put their  backs into it as iicvieir before, and  toiled with a devoted and anxious en-  'husinsm which is known only to  those who Juiew the Arsenal during  the critical time.      ,   , ���������       <   ;   __,   From morning till night the work  went on, and through the night till  morning came again. There was no  cessation on holiday or Sunday, Tho  beginning of 1900 saw. them labouring  for 'all they were worth, and the  greater part of the year came and  went and utill they wexe "putting  their hacks into it."  Like the army at the front, they  had their casualties, their dead aiid  wounded, victims of the stern strain  of the contest that was being maintained at all costs. One of the principal managers, though warned by the  doctor that ho'would Jci.ll himself, if  he did not take a rest, preferred to  die at hia post, rather than leave it  at that time of trial. A member of  the crew of one of the War Department steamers sustained an injury to  his leg while loading up for a run  do.wju to ono of the depots on the  river. The wound was severe, but  forgetful of every personal consideration in his anxiety to do his duty  with the rest, he refused to report  it, and went on his last voyage. On ���������  his return the wound was past all  cure, and he wa,s carried into tho hospital to die.      |  UNBROKEN STREAM OF SUPPLIES  These are only instances of the spirit  that was abroad. Time passed en and  still the firing line at the front were  hard at work with rifle and gun,  but still behind, in never-failing support, the great machine shops of the  Arsenal stamped and thundered and  roared with unfailing energy andiron  def eirrninalion, sending forth an unbroken stream, of supplies to maintain  the  fight 7,1100  miles away.  But if tho men did their duty nobly  the Arsenal nlaff���������heads    of   depart- -  ments, assistant officers, masters and  foremen,   were burdened with   a   re-  i sponsibility,  which,  at    times,   must  i havo seemed well-nigh insupportable.  [We have only to imagine what would  j 'have happened  had   there  been  anji  I breakdown in the supply of nmmuni-  i Lion at uny time during the conflict;  i Think of an army without cartridges',  1 driven, hack  upon   the guns of the  ��������� fleet at uea I ���������  ���������  HANGER AHEAD!    :  A knavish-koking Inflow, was onc������  charged before a magistrate with  stealing' a pair of trousers.

Evil of Environment a Strong Fuc.'or In  (be .Spread or Drmilteuncss���������important  Ksport on the Subject of Incbrlc<y.  It i3 nowi eighteen months since  .iho Society, for the Study of Inebriety appointed a spocial' committee to  consider the relation of heredity .to  inebriety, says a London Letter. The  committee was composed of five physicians, twio surgeons, a professor of  bucteriology, an army surgeon,  and five general medical practitioners. Eighteen mouths have been  spent in investigation. Tho report  of .this committee has just boon published and it is signed by nine of the  fourteen ' members, some of whom  have made comments, while one has  ���������sont in an independent report. Tho  reference to the committee was in  ���������those terms: to investigate the conditions under which the tendency of  drunkenness is capable of transmis-  ��������� siion to offspring. It does not appear to be contended that inebriety is  in itself hereditary,.but that a capacity or tendency to it is heritable.  .The report declares that the inebriety of an individual deponds upon  three conditions'���������the first being an  inborn capacity for enjoying the scn-  siations which alcohol produces, arid  lhe second and third being acquired  ���������personal experiences of the plcas-  ��������� ures of -alcohol and the increased delight which continued indulgence confers in the case of the inebriate. That  one drunken generation often succeeds another suggests a hereditary  taint. The committee adds that  there is no evidence that acquired  characters of any kind are heritable.  This appears to have been a much  debated question.  Popular opinion has taken iCor  granted that" tho acquired characteristics of parents aro likely to bo inherited, and, of course, "temperate  reformers," well-meaning, but often  'gnorant and misguided, have not  been slaw to urge upon the public  that each man's drinking is pretty  sure to produce for him a generation  of'children who will become drunkards. If this ho not itruo the temperance reformer, who is generally in  favor of entire abstinence, rather than  of temperance, must boar a heavy re-  sp'onsibiliity for tho vast amount of  mental \torture which ho has inflicted  on  the  moderate  drinking citizen.  V7;.-';INFJ^J3ttGE OF HEREDITY.'  The last wwd of science, however,  ais declared by teachers of physiology,  biology and botany, is a very definite  assertion that no instance of the  . hereditary transmission of an acquired characteristic has ever been demonstrated either, in the animal or  the vegetable kingdom. If this bo a  fact a man can only transmit to his  son the hereditary taint withwhich  he was born, and if a man having no  inborn tendency to excess, yet acquires drunken habits his progeny aro in  no more danger than are those, of his  , neighbor, leaving out of considera-  ti;n . the effect of environment on  youth It is not denied that drunken parents who bocorhe thus mentally and physically wioak are liable,to  have children who are degenerate-  weak in body and. feeble in mind;  each porsons, in fact, as under propitious circumstances tend to become  paupers, criminals, epileptics and  . drunkards. The point which is denied is "that tha drunkard's child has  the specialized tendency to becorao  . inebriate rather than vicious in sonio  other direction.  It seems probable that tho question  of environment is of more importance  after all than that of heredity, and  a man of strong will is just as likely to exercise it in the gratification  of his desire as' in the contrary direction. If, a man of powerful will  finds that' alcohol gives him pleasure  he wilt take good care to repeat the  experience. The. habitual drinker is  one to whom alcohol brings enjoy-  rraeht, either as positive pleasure or  cessation 01 pain, whereas the voluntary abstainer is one, who from constitutional' peculiarity, finds little  pleasure in alcoholic exhilaration.  Alcohol weeds out from every race  individuaLsi who most enjoy and indulge in it. The races of Southern  Europe, who have had the longest experience of alcoholic drinks are now.  more temperate than the British, the  Scandinavians! and  the Russians.   ;  The committee is of opinion that  tho continued abuse of alcohol tends  to render a race loss innately prone  to inebriety than it would otherwise  have been, this result being brought  about by the ��������� elimination of the  drunken unfit and tho curvival of  those with a weak tendency to .alcoholism.  JAPANESE SHIPYARDS.  One In Tokto Which Cover* Nearly Sixty  Acres.  The determination of Japan to become in every sense a modern nation  its in no line of development made  more plain than in the matter of  ship-yards. Tho Tokio shipyard, covering fully GO acres, is reported as employing 3,000 men. who have all the  latest machinery, including pneumatic riveters', and six steamers of 180,-  000 tons aro on tho stocks, two of  them for the Nippon Yugcn Kaisha.  Tho fact that the works are equipped  with electricity is a further indication of tho progressive spirit now  ruling.      i i  The ship-building (yard at Nagasaki  is: also going ahead, but special interest attaches to the now Government  steel works. Some 5,000,000 yens have  already been spent, but 15,000,000 have  been voted. The .works are on the  eastern shores of Kiushis, the most  southern of .the large islands, forming, the empire, and it is, therefore,  contiguous to China. Tho establishment, which covers 230 acres, is close  by tho coal fields connected with the  railway, and a seaport having over  20 feet of water, will be convenient  for the shipping of the finished products to the northern islands, and  also to China which ultimately must  become a large customer. The works  aro thoroughly equipped. In addition  to blast furnaces there arc coke ovens  and in the steel department open  hearth Bessemer furnaces, with a full  set of rolling mills for ploughing,  throe bar mills' as well as rail, sheet  and plate rolls. There "are steel and  iron foundries, boiler shops, laboratories, testing and other departments.  Tho work will soon be put in operation, construction being far advanced;  PROFIT  IN  GROWING  CURRANTS.  Every farm, and ' village- garden  should contain as many currant hushes as possible, says Mr. S. E.' Brandis,  I' have been cultivating this useful  fruit for eevera 1 years and find that  it is moit only desirabl3 for home  use, but pays a fair , profit when  marketed.; Last season I gathered G3  gals, from tlw.o bushes and sold the  crop readily  at 40c  per gal.  I often see currant bushes that arc  given no attention 'whatever after  the fruit has been gathered. Treated  in this w,ay the crop the following  season cannot be a paying one. A  little ���������attention' to the bushes Will  more than repay the time expended.  After trimming out-all (ho dead wood,  the soil about the bushes should bo  freed from weeds and grass. When  this is done, scatter about one gallon of wood ashes around each hush  and over tho ashes spread iweli-rot-  ted stable manure to a depth of two  or three inches. This 'will give Iho  bushes much-needed plant feed, and  the following season an extra large  yield will result. -  '  The Cherry currant is a valuable  variety in this vicinity, hut :it must  bo set in a rich soil and iw.cll.cuRivaled.

DEGENERATION   OF   THE  Rapid    Decline   la   (he   YIlalMy   of  ;hc  Itcpubllc Alarms Frenchmen.  A few years ago that volatile and  ancl patriotic French statistician  Jules Bertillion (author of a system  of identifying criminals and expert  witness iu the Dreyfus case) emitted  a doleful cry which should have  startled his countrymen. ' Tie exclaimed that the French people and  the. French language were doomed to  early extinction; that in 1859 tlie  Jong declining birth rate had fallen  below the death rate, and that there  had been an actual loss of population. From the beginning of tlie past  century the birth rate of France had  been steadily falling, while there had  been no appreciable decline in that  of the other European nations. The  French tongue had ceased to be the  language of diplomacy ancl of polite  society in other lands. Although at  the beginning of tho war of 1870  France and Germany liad the same  number of soldiers, in 1895 Germany  was able to put in the field twice as  many men as France ��������� could command. I\L Bertillion also noted that  tliere had been a corresponding failure to increase the value of French  exports because tliere was no growth  of workers.  That there arc Frenchmen who  realize this declining tendency is apparent from the occasional efforts to  reverse the tide, as when the Government has been urged to give a  bonus to persons who marry, to  place a prohibitory tax on bachelorhood, to bestow prizes on the mothers of twins, etc. To promote marriage (and especially tho union of  men and women of superior physique), the'late Count do Pierrecourt  has left to his- native city of Rouen  his entire fortune of ten million  francs, o"n condition that every ytar  a bonus of ������20,000 shall be given to  the tallest man ancl woman who  shall marry each other.

A Warm Welcome.  Skaguay heralded the arrival of the  Canadian Pacific Navigation Company's  steamship Islander in its port on her  first trip by the following glowing report, which appeared on the front page  bf the "Daily Alaskan."  "Sunday afternoon half of the population of Skagway accepted the cordial  invitation of Captain Foot to inspect  the   steamship   Islander.    Capt,   Foot  was personally/in charge and he was  very solicitious to seeVthat everybody  bail a chance to see the fine ship and  partake of the "good   things.   He was  most ably, assisted by Agent Dunn, Mr.  Puinphievs; and every member   of the  crew.   They were all just as polite and  attentive as though those aboard had  paid their hard cash to be taken care of.  It would  be difficult to give an accurate description of the vessel and  her  appointments ; without going into the  minutest details.   The ship's exterior is  well remembered by many Skagwayans,  but the interior has been so completely  changed that it unrecognisable yesterday.   The fittings are most elaborate,  and the decorations are all of artistic  merit and present a harmony of view  which is indescribably grand.  The dining saloon is exceptionally  large for a ship of the proportions of the  Islander. Its finish could scarcely be  finer, it would seem. The furnishings  of the ladies' cabin, the lounging room  and other parts are of the finest. One  ol the attractions which is always looked for by the sea traveller is a chance to  promenade. The Islander's cabin is so  located that a splendid walk can be had  around it.  But it is in,tlie state rooms where the  well being of the passenger has been  zealously guarded. Every arrangement  and detail which could possibly contribute to the comfort has been provided.  From main truck to kielson, from stem  to stern the ship is kept scrupulously  clean. As many wended their way up  town after viewing the vessel and enjoying the hospitality of Capt. Foot, they  were constrained to say was the finest-  vessel with the most popular skipper'on  the run.  On the way up there.were many musicians on board and last the night'ont  a concert was given, at which Mr. T. R.  Pumphrey presided."

The Valparaiso Mining company,  operating on German mountain, has by  some one's carelessness become entangled in a dispute with the Imperial  Mines, Ltd., over the ownership of a  very valuable piece of ground.  The Valparaiso company bought the  Franklin claim, but neglected to attend  to the assessment work for the current  year. Thus the claim reverted to the  crown. The Imperial people who disputed the right of the Valparaiso Co. to  " adjoining ground, grasped the. opportunity to get a hold that could not be  disputed, and immediately located the  lapsed claim under the name of Climax.  Then they advertised the application of  the Valparaiso, company for a crown  grant.
