SCOTT   &   BOWNF.,      Chemists,  Toronto  SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 1903.  SILVER-LEAD DUTIES.  If the Federal government during the  present session fails   to   accede  to   Ihe  appeal of British Columbia for an   advance in the tariff on lead and its   products they will earn an everlasting   ingratitude.   The province is not asking  the government to change any   feature  of its policy but to give our industry the  same justic   that is meted oil t,< othera.  It is giving a measure of   protection   to  every industry  in   Canada,   excepting  lua 1, aii 1 ths people of this  district are  asking for an extension  to   them   of  a  .policy in force all over Canada in other  enterprises. No doubt had lead producing or lead manufacturing been in  any stage of advancementt when the  protective tariff of Canada was first introduced in 1879, or at the time of any  of its revisions in latter yea.s, it would  have beeft considered, but because it  was hot, is no fault of tho industry, arid  norea-on why the requirements'' of today should lie entirely ignored. It is  quite true, as several ministers contend,  ���������' that if the tariff is touched to meet   the  . Kootenays cade there will be numerous  applications for changes from other  parts of Canada; but as a matter of fact  they will all come from such industries  that are fairly well done for and only in  . search of still   better  treatment-from , WHQ CAmQJ BE CURm)  industries   that   are   swimming   along j    Backed up by oVer ������ third of a century  taking must be first free from the inroads  of foreign over-surplus production, uhe  must adopt some defensive means  by which thit alien over-production will  be excluded. This can be best done by  adopting national protection and would  be amenable to our lead mining as well  as other industries. Canada today is  practically forced to sell her raw material in a foreign market* whilst .-reticles  qf consumption are boughtin the same  market. Practically .speaking the country that buys in the cheapest market  and sells in the dearest is the one that  invariably enriches itself.  The C. P. R. has trouble of its own in  Vancouver. The telegraph and freight  clerks have gone out on strike because  of the dismissal of one of their number,  claiming he was dismissed ou account  of his position,with the Brotherhood of  Railway Employees, and the Wholesale  Grocers Association has passed a resolution, ��������� and forwar-'ed a. copy to the  railway officials, to the effect that unless Vancouver is given tl.-e same commercial rateB as Winnipeg, the merchants of the coast will not patronize  the big railway. The strikers places  are being filled' by men from eastern  Canada and Seattle. In the event of  the difficulty not being soon settled to  suit the clerks, a general strike may be  ordered from Winnipeg to the coaet by  the Brotherhood, which will complicate  matters to a great extent. If tlie company do not grant the request of the  grocers' association it means an increase  in the volume of trade over the Great  Northern and its Canadian branch, the  V. V. & E., and a corresponding losu to  the C. P. R.  FOl< -vomen  fairly well under the law as it now  stands, and only hoping to do better.

All they ask is a fair an*  reasonable trial of their means of cure.  of remarkable and uniform cures, a record  such as no other remedy for the diseases  and weaknesses peculiar to women ever  attained, the proprietors and makers of  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel  fully warranted in offering to pay $500 in  legal money of the United States, for any  that never can come under the present  conditions of foreign   markets,  unless  Their financial responsibility is well  known to every newspaper publisher and  druggist in the United States, with most  hew life is given to the  industrv  under! of whom they have done business for over  ,  .

They have  I the most remarkable record of cures made  by this world-famed remedy ever placed to  the credit of any preparation especially  designed for the cure of woman's peculiar  ailments. This wonderful remedy, therefore, stands absolutely alone as the only  one possessed of such reraarawble curative  properties as would warrant its makers in  publishing such a marvelous offer as if  above made in the utmost good faith.

The  eight hour day will become law later on  when the mining industry of that state  is on a more solid basis, and when the  mining interests will take more kindly  to the measure. Had our own provincial legislature waited a few years before  its adoption in B.C, to allow capital to  come in and develop the mines, a good  deal of the bitterness, strife, trouble  and depression, which have been characteristic of its adoption .in this province, would have been averted. The  eight hour day was bound to come, but  for the welfare of the mining industry  of a young province like British Columbia, it is admitted on all sides that it  came too soon.  NOTICE.

B. C. MINING ASSOCIATION.  Urges the Government to Settle  Labor Troubles���������Do, Away  With Two Per Cent Tax  ,,     The   Provincial   Mining   Association  which has been in  session   in  Victoria  concluded its important work Tuesday  Over 250 delegates we,r������ in attendance  and represented  nearly   every   mining  camp of the province.   They were made  /. up ofmineownera, smelter men, miners,  'vjv merchants   and   farmers,   in   fact  all  who are  interested in   mining.     The  meeting waa carried though without the  slightest dierupture which is more than  was expected   when   one  realizes   the  great undertaliing of the organization,  the   great  diversity  of  opinions  that  would naturally be developed, where so  many interests were at   variance   with  one and another.  The following officers were elected:  President', John Keen, Kaslo; first vice-  president, J. B. Hobson, Cariboo; second vice-president, I). W. Biggins, Victoria; secretary, A.L. Belyea, Victoria;  treasurer, A. B. Fraser, Victorir.  A committee of ten was appointed to  draft a constitution and by-laws, and  rules of order for the guidance of the  association. The fallowing will constitute the committee: / C. T. Rand, J.  B. Hobson, Hon. D. W. Higgins, Chris.  Foley, A. 0. Gait, Senator Reed, S. S.  Taylor, W. S. Drewry, Jas. Staples, M.  P. P., and A.C. Flumerfelt.   , ,;{ % '  Besides an executive committee of  15 members was appointed selected from  all mining sections of the province.  The convention was one of succes and  should prove successful of bringing  about-beneficial legislation to our now  languid mining conditions. A great  many strong by-laws-were drafted and  passed, all of which Were suggestive of  some measure by which the mining industry would be benefitted.  The following resolutions adjusting  difference between capital and labor  were adopted:  ���������'This association shall be'.-non-political and shall not permit discussion in  any of its convention or meetings of  social problems; nor shall it interfere in  anyway with labor unions, provided,  however, that the association shall be  at liberity to use its good offices in adjusting and settling labor difficulties."  ������������������'Resolved, that the goyernment of  Britis-h Columbia be hereby requested  to forthwith appoint a commission of  three members, who duty it shall be to  examine as fully as possible into the  existing relations of employer and em-  ploy������e etigagt'd in the mining industry  in th'.s province, and to gather data on  the question of capital and labor therein employed ; said commission in meantime be regarded hh a conciliation board  in any mining labor troubles that may  occur, with si view to the settlement and  prevention of such trade disturbancos."  By Chris. Foley: "Resolved that the  ���������jov^i'nment be respectfully requested to  constitute the said board of conciliation  by the appointment of the following:  (a) One practical mine manager; (b)  one practical mine worker, and (c) a  chairman mutually agreed upon by the  other two. This board shall have the  power to collect, information uudei oath,  and its future duty  shall   be   to   make  prompt repi'it from time to time to tlie  minister of mines, through whom the  press and public may be informed of the  situation."  Resolutions were also passed  endorsing those passed at Sandon   in connection with the silver-lcadindustry, favo:-  ing the abolition of the two   per  ceij.t.  tax, asking that the collection   of dues  by the government in rasped to timber  and cordwood used by the owners upon  mines and mineral claims   be  discontinued, suggesting amendments  to   the  signal code, asking for smaller fees and  less exacting rules with respect toboiler  inspection, declaring that the rights required under a free   miner's certificate  should     not     be  ' forfeited    in     case  that cert ih'cateshould lapse,   that  "for  the purpose of taxation a crown granted  placer claim should , be   placed   in   the  same position as other mineral   claims,  and exemption from the tax imposed by  section 145 should  be extended   to   all  groups of crown   granted' claims   upon  any of which   claims assessment   work  for the whole group may have been performed."    Another I'esolulion   asking  that British Columbia   be   represented  by counsel at   the   Alaskan   boundary  commission.  The convention further favored the  reduction of crown grant fees from $25  to $10, and wants the government to assist in the suppression of fraudulent  wild-catting. A resolution was also  passed favoring the allowing of pros-  spectors to stake claims in the railway  belt without paying on a basis of *}5 an  acre, and that prospectors on dominion  railway lands be allowed free uso of surface rights.  Lead Going Up.  The upward rise of lead on the London market is hailed with delight by  the Slocan lead producers. This metal  was quoted at ������12.16s. 3d. this week  the highest point attained for a great  many months. The rise in price appears to have all the indications of being permanent, and strong reasons are  entertained that it will still go much  higher. When one considers that the  consumption is grow apace of the production, -'which appears to be the case,  prices must advance aa a consequence.  It is a well known fact that the lead  producing mines of the United States  are failing to meet the increasing consumption and even with the large importation from Mexico doe9 not appear  adequate to fill the gap. If the Kootenay should secure the protection it i'b  seeking it will be enabled to share richly  in filling the shortage. Through this  tariff it will be master of the Canadian  or home.'market, realizing a handsome  price, while at the same time taking  advantage of reasonable London quotations to work off our over-prodution in  other countries.

The  rough, phiiggy coated cattle of the Scottish. Highland.**, so different from the  animal of our Canadian Northwest, a*e  admirably depicted in this excellent  copy of Watson's celebrated painting.  The animals are grouped in the foreground and have the form of an irregular pyramid with the leader of the herd,  a picturesque figure, ut the apex, and  this is agreebly balanced by the masses  of mountains to the right and left of the  picture. Clouds floating through the  misty atmosphere give a pleasing variety of color and value by the shadows  which they cast upon the landscape.  The pictures of \y*. Watson are seldom  seen in exhibition for the reason that  Liis success in the painting of animals  has been bo'great that for many years liis  work has been'purchased before it left j  the easel. He rarely paints more than  three or four pictures a year and all are  executed with the completeness and  and painstaking attention lo detail  shown in "Highland Cattle."

Application was made Thursday in the  court chambers Nelson, to have the  action dismissed in Lhe Byron N.

It is confidently expected   that   the  coal strike at Fernie will  be settled   in  a   few   days.   A  committee  composed  of representatives of capital  and labor,  approved    by   the   Provincial   Mining  Association, are now at   the   scene  of  trouble and will endeavor to adjufct   the  difficulty. The manager of the company  has placed the books at the   disposal  of  the committee and  will do   all   in   his  power to help in bringing about a settlement.   When such a spirit is shown  by  the company jt proves they   have little  to fear from the investigation.
