C, SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 1898.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  The Two Should Go Hand in  in This Province.  The Rossland  Miner says :  "If the  promises  and expectations of Sir William Van Home are realized, southern  British Columbia   will have no cause  for   complaint against the   C-. P. R.,"  ' and why not?   We  believe the safest  measurement of any corporation���������and  railways are  no exception���������is from a  selfish point of view,  and  measuring  , tlie "promises and expectations" of Sir  William Van Home by this standard,  ��������� there is ample evidence that they will  be  fully realized   as fur   as effort on  the part of the Company  can realize  them.     They   have   a great   deal   of  money    invested   in    roads,   rolling  stock,   buildings   and    other    effects  here and    from any selfish    point   of  view,  the  object should  bo   to make  the   most   out   bf.it.   '���������! That  "most"  cannot be made by squeezing mining  out of existence by high freights, excessive smelter charges, etc.; it   can  only be made by encouraging mining,  in reasonable freight rates, etc.,  etc.  Whether the lowest paying rates arc  now prevailing or not, we are not in' a  position to say ; but we do know that  an   increase   of   traffic   always leads  to   lower   rates"   and   retain    reasonable returns,    The interests, then, of  the miners  and the   C. P. R. in   this  country are reciprocal���������the more the  miners mny produce, the lower can the  Co. make their rates, and   vice versa.  It appears the day is not far distant  when the cornpcany   will lurther  unbosom themselves to   the'  miners  of  this country and lay more propositions'  before thorn for turning their products  to  better account.     Nothing  can  be  .gained   under   the  circumstances   by  encouraging   foreign railways,  whose  interests are  to divert traffic from   the  country   and discourage  the development of. interests, dissociated 'with our  common   industry���������mining.     If .the  mine   owners   of the   country   would  appoint an  executive  whose duty it  would be to confer at regular intervals  with   the 0.   P.   R.   relative   to   all  matters calculated to improve mining  in  general so  as  to secure joint  cooperation with tin; railway for government aid when   required   and  for th  /better development of the industry  in  other channels th-it,prescnt themselves  from timo to time, instead of fighting  by sections, it would.not be long before  beneficial results'would  show   themselves in -many substantial ways.  have been regular shipments, the total  shipped to date amounting to 580 tone,  the net profit, on   which   amounts   to  ������3,-180.   This profit has be3n made  in  spite of the unusually  hoa/y   charges  H(Wd | for freight and shipment.   I am happy  to be able   to -inform   you   that   our  manager has now entered   into   some  very  advantageous   contracts,' which  will materially reduce ' these   charges  in future.   During the first two  weeks  of this month 140 ton*   wero  shipped,  or at,the rate of,70   tons   per   week,  'faking an average of only 60 tons   per  week, with the same   rate   of  freight  and treatment, the mine may  be said  to be yielding a return of over ,-20   per  per cent, per annum   upon   the   total  capital of the company.   The directors  confidently believe that  this   will   be  steadily increased as development pio  ceeds.   The question of  declaring   an  interim dividend has received the very  careful consideration of your directors;  but owing to the fact that   rhe  who!'.'  of the accounts are not before us,  and  that we have not received the full'' return from the smelter, we have decided  to defer doing so.    ft will, however, be  a satisfaction to you, as it is to us,   to  know that we have already   earned   a  considerable profit, and this successful  state of affairs is chiefly due to the untiring energy and ability of   Mr.   Mil-  burnc.  Mr. May said that from whnt he understood the chairman to say, the  Queen Bess Proprietary company was  sending ore to the United States, and  incurring very heavy duty cha'rgOB in  doing so  anil silver ore as it was treated in the  United States. This fact, however,  would scarcely alter the drift of the  chairman's observations, .',because the  value of the lead in ore was so high  that the difference in the rate of freight  on the ore and on the smelted lead was  so slight as not to be of much account.  Another reason why it was an advantage to send the  load   to   the  (Held over from List week.)

The first ordinary general meeting of  the Queen Bess Proprietary Company,  Limited, was held on Feb. 17th, in  London, "Eng., under the presidency of  Captain Necdham.  The Chairman says :    The Company  waR registered on October 21st Inst; it  has a working capital of ������15,000, fully  subscribed, and a. reserve of 20,000  um  issued shares.     The title deeds, which  art; in the form-of Crown grants,   have  been carefully examined bv your Company's legal advisers in British Columbia and found to bo  correct.     I   have  , also much pleasure in   informing yon  ' that your Company is also   registered  as a trading company under   the   Do-  mion Act of Parliament, and  I might  point out that it is'very unusual to get  a company registered in British Columbia in so short* a   time.     The. Queen  Bess is situated on Howson   creek,   in  in the Slocan Division   of   the   West  Kootenay district of British Columbia.  As noon as the property was taken over  your managing director, Mr. Milburne,  lost no time in going to werk, ' and   as  the snow came on   earlier than   usual  this year, it was well for us that .there  was no hesitation or delay;   Had there  been the winter's ��������� work   would   have  been entirely lost.   Sleeping and messing accommodation for 50 men, with  houses for foremen and  officers,   have  been erected ; snow-sheds and sorting-  houses have been   put   up   where   required, and the -wagon road   has  been  thoroughly repaired and put in   order.  These fifty men have   b< en   employed  night and diy developing   the   mine,  and the development work, which  has  amounted to something over 700   feet  of tunnelling and cross-cuts, has been  carried on with the.most   satisfactory  results      The   cross-cutting   has   ex-  possod at least two valuable , veins ���������' of  high grade ore, the one in No. .4   tunnel proving to be soven feet broad, and  carrying three   feet  of  solid   galena.  The lust assay from,   this   vein   shows  287 oz. of silver   and 72   per  cent   of  ' lead. J ���������'  This, however, cannot be taken as an  average; but it serves to prove that  the ore is improving at depth. It ip  hoped that this rich vein will be proved  through the higher and lower levels  The first shipment of ore took place on  a feeling that they would like to hel|  their cousins over the water as much  as they could, they did not want them  to take too much of tho profit   out   of  the funds of their   property,   and   he  hoped the directors would, as early  as  they could, got the ore treated in   Canada, und so save as much   as   possible  of these charges.     Then,   he   took   it  that though the directors had   not declared a dividend, they had practically  "arned one.    He hoped, so soon as  the  returns were lo hand, tfroy woi|d   foel  toemselvos fn the position to declare a  dividend.   The shareholders would  be  verv glad not only to receive   a   dividend, but also to have full details from  time to time with regard to  the working of tho very  valuable ��������� property   in  which they were interested.  The chairman said that with respect  to heavy changes for freight and treatment in the United States, there was a  very difficult and   complex   question,  and it.was receiving/!very- possible at  tention not only from their managing  directors, but also from the   managing  directors from all the ' mines   in   that  district.    At   present   they   were   absolutely in the hands   of  the   United  States government, and from   what ho  know of those geirjlemen   he   had   no  doubt they would  take good   care   to  keep them in their ha'nds.'Nb doubt if  some large capitalist, of English'levia-  than were to come   into   the   country  apd set up in opposition to the  United  States, he.might get the'better of her,  but lor a small capitalist to attempt it  it would be very risky   indeed.     Suppose a smelter was erected by a  small  company got up in London ; when  the  conditions seem tavorable, and   everything was going on  perfectly,   and   it  looked' like   being    prosperous,    the  United Stat's' would take the.duty   off  lead, and that.would at once place the  English company in a   false   position.  Then she would lower the freights,and  if the worst came   to   the   worst  she  would actually give a bonus   to   them  to send the ores.   The fact   was,   they  must have these   ores,   they   were  so  useful for fluxing their own oies.     At  present the   Hall   smelter .could ' net  treat these ores, nor   could   the   Trail  smeller, and until some great  capitalist came into  the   country   and   competed with the United States   smelters  they would have to' submit   to   these  extremely heavy . charges.     But   the  Slocan ores wore absolutely unique in  value,   and   they   could   stand   tlicsf.'  charges., Take such ah assay   as   287  oz, of silver and 72 per cent,   of   lead ;  even the United States could not   beat  that.   Such ores wore   more   valuable  than tliose in any part   of   the   world,  and would pay even when'silver was at  the piice of tin.    With regard   to   the  dividend, as Mr. May   had   suggested,  and as he   (the   chairman)   ought   to  have paid, of course, thoy   had  earned  the dividend; out they had not got the  money, and therefore could not pay it.  Thoy had in idea profit of about, ������3,480  and tha' wassuflicientto pay adividend;  hut probably before . long   that   profit  would lie increased, and  the directors  would then be in a position, when they  had the money, to pay adividend.  Mr. Drummond, who said he had returned from British Columbia, after  visiting not only the Queen Boss property, but all the mines in the Slocan  district, said he should like to supple-  nient the chairman's reniarks in the  direction of making one little correction. He had been in British Columbia to a later period than that to  which the chairman'a information extended, and he could tell them the Hall  any  fire and 75 cents for   each   subsequent  hour at the same.���������Carried.  BUTTE HOLOCAUST.  Twenty-Five Men Perish  In  ing House Fire.  Board  Butte. Mont., March   21.���������The  Hale  House, a three story building used us a  boarding and lodging   house   for   the  men in the employ cf   the   Anaconda  copper mines, was' entirely  destroyed  by fire early to-day.    The building was  on East   Broadway.      When   the   fin-  broke out shortly alter   three o'clock,  there were three hundred nien   in   it.  Of these  in an v arc in the hospital, mid  others, who   escaped   almost, without  clothes, arc senile-red   all   over   town.  Until the.safe, now buried in the cellar  under tons of debri.-i: is   removed   and  tlie books examined and'a roll   called,  it wiil not bo kn iwu  how   many   perished.   The estimate of the   dead now  runs up to 25.   It is known that  sixty  did not show  up   at   the   mines   this  morning, though many of these doubtless are with, friends.     Tho   monetary  loss is about $30,000.  So far as known two men . arc dead  from injuri' ? received in jumping from  windows, another is dying and twenty  are niissing, while a search of the ruins  may dis-dose the fact that many transient lodgers are also lost.  Telephone Office Robbed.  A peculiar robbery took, place at the  telephone office    on   Tuesd.y   night,  Miss Crawford, ii'ho has charge, locked  her desk and the office door as usual  on going 'hm.m'e   in  the" evening   and  when  her, brother   went   to open  up  Wednesday morning,h   found the door  open, a'hole cut at the side of the.lock  in the desk,  the desk opened and  $29  in cash gone.   Of this money $28 belonged to the Junior Hockey boys and  had been left in Miss Crawford's charge  some  weeks  ago.    Dr. Powers' office,  across the hall,  had also  been opened  that night in his absence.   From   appearances,   the telephone office  door  was opened   by a key ;  and. therefore,  by some one  who had a knowledge of  the premises and probably had seen  the key of, the door before.   A couple  of cheqes in  the drawer were left untouched, .; which would go to show the  work  was  not that,  of a professional,  but more likely   by  some  boys who  wanted some  hockey money, for special purposes. '  his opinion that the different religious  denominations of the town should furnish   some place of   amusement   for  young men and miners of this vicinity.  On behalf of these  bodies, but  more  especially  on behalf of' the Epworth  League,I would like to say a few words  in regard to this.   I would  first invite  the attention of "Awake" to tho efforts  put  forth   by  the churches  to amuse  and  entertain  tho classes referred  to  above  and    the  response which   has  been made.   If "Awako" will but consider the entertainments given by the  churches, he will find that, one or two  have indeed met with success. I would  like, however,  to call his attention  to  tho following facts:  In the month of Augiut, the Methodists held an entertainment in the  church for which the host talent possible was socttrpd, and groat trouble  taken to makeiti\ success. Tho result  was a not proceed of about $13.  Later ihe Johnson-Smiley combination was brought here. Everyone will  concetle that this company is strictly  firsl-clnss. What was the result ?  After the combination had appeared  for two evenings, tho committee found  themselves in debt $2.00.  Still later was the Married Men's  social, which, after several bills had  been cancelled gratuitously by different persons, resulted in a. net proceed  of S1.50.      "  So much   for that.    In' other lines  efforts    have boon  made  to   provide  amu8on)ont  for those  wishing it���������an  Epworth League Literary society  was'  formed.    ]n order  that  the objections  to it as a religious organization might  be mot, one session   was made  purely  literary,  and   the   religious  services  held   upon   each   Thursday   evening.  Every  Monday evening the doors  of  the League have bf en opsn  to all and  the  public cordially invited.   While  the   membor3 of the   League  do not  claim.'.'that the entertainments have  always been of the best kind, thoy do  claim that they have done their best to  provide amusement and   opportunity  for self improvement for those wishing  it, and the result was that the number  wishing-amusement,- or iii/ least who  attended, could usually be counted  on  ones fingers.   ,  Further they discussed   the advisability of starting a gymnasium  and  reading room in Sandon.   After a long  deliberation it was decided to abandon  the attempt for  the present.   The reasons for this wore:  1st, Lack of linmi-  cial'ability ; '2nd, The fact that if it  was tpidcr church supervision it would  tend to keep many  young men away,;  3rd, That it was the city council alone  that could properly   take steps  in the  matter, and one or two minor reasons.  The League  is,  however, prepared to  do this  in conjunction  with the other  religious bodies of the city.   Should  the  city council supply a place of entertainment and furnish   it suitably,  with what aid tlie churches could give,  they will with the consent and co-operation of the other denominations supply attendants and caretakers for such  institution  free of charge.   I feel sure  that in  this move  they  would  meet,  with the  hearty approval and support  of every religious society in the town.  Thanking you  for the  valuable space  you have allowed me, I. remain  Yours sincerely,  Chas. N. Haney,  .    Pres.E.L. of C.E.  Sandon, March. 17,'98.  in tin plates.

Next t'o iron and steel, copper is most  used in metallic form, only a ''small  proportion being used in the salts of  copp?r and blue vitrei. The great  mass of copper are in the manufacturing of brass, of which it forms two-  thirds, in electrical conductors, sheet  roofing, cooking utensils and pipes.

Sandon Holds the Bostoci  Again tills Year.  Trophy  PETROLEUM FIELDS   DISCOVERED.  About Eighty Miles East of Kuskonook  on the Crow's Nest Road.  After asserting the Whitewater mine  is really sold to the English syndicate,  Mr SVinstead gives the following  about Whitewater to a B. C. News reporter :  "One of the most important  claims  in,( bat district is that one  known   as  the Whitewater Deep mine.   This is a  fraction    Adjoining   the   Whitewater,  which is being worked by  an  English  f-yndicnto.   They expect to strike   the  main ledge 800 feet below the surface,  or about 400   feet   below, the   lowest  workings   of   the   Whitewater   mine.  Their tunnel is in about 800   feet   and  development work is being pushed forward rapidly.   About 16 men are   now  being employed and it is expected  the  big vein will   be   cut   any   day   now.  Though it has boon., ascertained   from  the h tost work that the dip of the 'ore  body   is   not   what  r was    originally \  counted on, the   company   will   right  ahead.   They have   run   across   many  stringers of ore, and   one   largo   body  that was not looked for.    At least $10,-  000 has been spent on this property.  "J. E. Mitchell lias 12 men working  on Ihe Charleston, another mine ii the  Whitewater basin, and na& had very  flattering returns from what shipments  hava been mode.  "It has liecn proposed to build a $30,-  000 or 840,000 train from the town up  into the Whitewater basin; in fact,  bids for its construction have already  b'cei: advertised for. If such a move is  made it will materially increase the  output of those mines located along  the line of the tramway.  "Tho Northern Belle, owned ' by the'  Jackson Mining Co., is getting new  hoisting machinery. This mine has  been si lipping" for abtfol" triree" yeaTs  and it is now the purpose of the company to sink about 300 feet, find out  the extent of their ore body and erect a  concentrator of the proper capacity.  "The Hillside is another claim in the  Jackson basin that is showing up very  well for the amount of wor'-c done ami  gives every indication of becoming a  valuable property.  "The Cody branch of the K. & S.  railway has just been cleared of snow,  'and now that it is possible to ge supplies in and ore out, J; G. McGuigaii  has been put in charge of the Noble  Five and expects to have that' mine  running soon.  ,','��������� "One ot the .most encouraging reports is that the Canadian Pacific will  run a branch from Three Forks down  to Whitewater this summer, The roadway was selected and the grade estab- |  lished last year and it is promised that  the railroad will be built this season.  "It is expected that three' times as  many men will be employed around  Whitewater this year as ever before,  with a corresponding increase in the  output of the district.  Dr. It. Morrison left here last week  to inspect a petroleum field about 80  milee up the trail. It was discovered  last winter by T. Byan of this 'place.  Mr. Morrison will secure samples and  take them to Nelson to be analyzed,  and if they come up to expectations a  company will be formed here to develop the property.  Some ten years ago petroleum was  discovered on the other side of the  summit. Coal Oil Grant put in a plant  and started to sink a well, but he  abandoned it for want of transportation facilities. Now that the Crow's  Nest Pass road passes right through  this belt, there is no reason why the  fields should not be developed extensively.���������Searchlight.  The long delayed bonspeil lias at last  taken place���������Saturday being the eventful day���������with the result that Sandon  again retain* the Bostock trophy. The  delay was occasioned by the spell of  weather that we have had for a f'me  making it a necessity to postpone the  ,'Speil" until such time as ' favorable'  weather could be obtained.  Four rinks competed, viz: One each  from Kaslo and Nelson and two local  rinl.'s. It was also expected that Golden would be represented but some-.  how or other they were unable to! at ,  tend.

Doyle approached  him   and  pulling out a pistol said :   "Dig up or  I'll shoot you."     lennors   evidently  thought that Doyle was joking for   he  replied    smilingly :      "Fire    away."

Their  visit fairly put the New Denverites in  a frenzy, and they in turn besought  the aid of the Silvertonians to help  them hold it'down. Accordingly a  mooting was holy in Silverton, and the  following was tho result:  "C. T. Cross gave as his opinion that  tho rvmoval would be detrimetal to  Silverton, because, as New Denver had  always been visited chiefly because it  was the possessor of the record office  and the eemetary, it would oe too bad  to have it with only the eemetary to  attract visitors.  =^."Mr. Hunter was skeptical as to the  seriousness of the proposed change,  while Grant Thorburn suggested that  New Denverites be invited to attend a  meeting here, as, he added,   that  Frank Watson is   now   manager  the Arlington mine at Siocim City.

Qui':, good friend Young, of the Slocan City News, ,is. donning his war  paint and feathers .to fight the air.  He'asserts that the chief .mission of  the.Sandon delegates to. Victoria. was  to secure the removal of the Record  office from New Denver to Sandon.  .We may advise our esteemed friend  that this: matter was not even .mentioned by the Sandon delegates, lo say  nothing of its;not being pressed. It is  generally conceded, that on account  of the large mineral wealth around  Sandon, for the convenience of the  public, there should be ah office here.  In mentioning the matter,to a provincial minister last summer, he said it  might be advantageous, to remove: the  .offici? fr.oro New Denver to, this place.  This is all that.has ever, been said and  done1 about it. We quite teadily ad-,  iii it, as, the News alleges^' Sandon,'has  as much need of an office as Slocan  {.T1 ty has,, or in .'other-words'-an office  here would accommodate as '.many,  people as the one at Slocan City does;  but the great question is, would it be  advantageous to the country t-< have  ihe .provincial treasury drawn on for  three' salaries "at these three 'places,  considering.-the-amount of work to be  done in.the whole territory. We-want  to see justice done to Sandon and its  surroundings ; but at the same time we  have some regard . for the taxation of  the whole,country,' through the provincial treasury--a circumstance the  News appears to hace lost sight of entirely, when a few months ago it urged  ihe opening of an office at Slocan City.  Lit 11s come to.-a' full consideration of  public, needs and costs to .the. entire  country, when we are considering all  these questions, and we will have the  less for .which to blame -the governments, when we.consider general provincial expenditures.

How  It Would  Appear   as   Moa������ured fey  Terrestrial Standard*.  Judged by our terrestrial experience,  which is all we have to go by,' the magnitude of a planet, If it is to bear life resembling that of the earth, is limited by other  considerations. Even .Jupiter, whioh,, as  far as our knowledge,', extends, represents  the extromo limit of groat planetary size,  may be too largo ever to become the abodo  of living beings of a high organization.  Tlie'force of gravitation on the surface of  .Jupiter exceeds that on tho earth's surface,  .as 2.04 to-1....Considering !the effects of  iliis''011. tlio woight and motion of bodies,  fc!ic" density of-the atmosplioro, the laws of  piiomiialics, etc., it is evident that Jupiter  would, to. say the very least, be aii.oxcued-  rigb' uncomfortable plnee of abode for beings resembling ourselves. But, Jupiter,  ' if it is ever to become a solid, rocky glbbo  tike ours, must shrink enormously in vol-  iiinc, since its density is only 0.34 us ooni-.  ",'jtind with'the- earth.'-.'Now, the sui-faco  gravity of a planet 'depends on its mass  rind its radius, being directly as the former  ai'iil. inversely as tho square of.', the hitter.  But. in shrinking Jupiter will lose none  of its muss, iilthough-'its radius will, become much smaller. Tne force of gravity  will consequently increase on its' surface  as .tlio'planet gets smaller and more 'dense  'i.'ho ' present niean iliamcter of Jupiter  is g(i,500iniles, while its mass exceeds that  cf tlie earth in-tho ratio of 81,0 to 1. Sup-  poso Jupiter shrunk- to three-quarters of  its' present diameter, or 61,800 miles, then  its surface gravity would exceed the u'lrth'g,-,  nearly five times. With one-iuilf its piUS-  -r.t- diaiaet'cv'il'.usiu'l'aci) gravity would become more lh;.ii tun times 1L1.U of the earth.  On such a. planota man's bones would  snap beneath his weight, even granting  that he could romain upright at all! It  would 'seem, then, that, unloss we are to  abandon terrestrial analogies altogether  and "go it blind," we must sot an upper  limit to the magnitude of an Inhabited  planet, and that Jupiter represents such  uppor limit,-if indeed be does not transcend it.-���������Popular Science Monthly.  QUAINT  DEVICES.  HERE  AND THERE.  The wild rush to the Klondyke that  still continues,   and is likely to remain  for some months, is more than passing  strange to any one who has a reason-  Able knowledge of mining operations  ���������in this   country.    Even if the wealth  ���������of that   northern country  was all that  as claimed for it by its greatest admir-  xrs, which it is not, the most favorable  ;accpuats  show it is only  one  out of  .every few thousands of those who get  ion the ground floor that is successful ;  of the" rest, but a few make even a bare  living, while privations, destitution and  hardship for nothing await  the multitudes  and death a large   per centage.

' For  instance for the year ending 30th of  June,' 1S01, the Kootenay 'country  gave the provincial treasury $31,000;  the next year $54,000.; the next $77,-  000; the next, $56,000; the next.  $66,000, next $i22vooo, and last year  $310,000 out o( a'total of $1,383,0.18,-  nearly $500,oco of which came from  Ottawa as a subsidy. The Koo'eu.ty  then gives the provincial government  one-third of its receipts from provincial  sources. But this is not all, the timber  fees should be added'to this $310,000  which would raise the total, to nearer  $375,000. With one-tenth of. the ter-  litoty of the province, the Kootenay  yields one-third of the provincial income from local sources.

In the nsnal  correspondence size ��������� that small size  nsed for a hurried note or invitation���������  the style goes very well, but when it  comes to larger sizes stationers say it  will not take. In this connection it is  reported in the New York Herald that  the most popular style is a sheet of par  per which folds in half and fits into an  envelope whioh. has a square flap. This  style comes in billet, note and letter  sizes, and the envelopes are graduated  to match. The favorite colors are white,  cream azure, regimental gray and bond  blue.

A man may talk of disdaining  physical strength and prowess until  Doonwlay,  but  the   fact  remains   that  he   cannot  look  at  a  picture  of  an  old-time knight, magnificent in his physical  proportions,  dauntless  in  his   physical  courage,  and    armed,     ready  fA$ aud eager for a contest  to the death with any  comer, without a thrill  of   admiration.  Mental   supeiior-  ity    is    desirable  and    admirable,  but is the "game  w o 11 h   the   can-  Jri-iy die,"   when   it  is  l^ffwon   at the   ex-  "f,/.\ p c 11 s e of phys-  ������\\ical   health   and  \\ strength ?  ������     The unhealthy  Miian may gain the  pity and even the admiration of men and  women, but it is a question whethei such a  man ever thoroughly gains their respect.  The  man whose  arteries  bound with the  rich, red blood of health carries with him a  force and  an  intensity that command re  spect, even though he he slighth- inferior  mentally to the weak, nei vous man.   While  no medicine in the woild will add an inch  to a  man's statine,  there  is  one  famous  medicine that will  fill the veins and aite-  ries with the rich, red, bounding blood of  perfect health.     It is Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery.    It is the gieat blood-  maker and blood-purifier.   When the blood  is pure and rich and led and plenty, and  filled with the life-giving elements that  nourish every tissue of the body, it is impossible for a man to suffer from ill-health  0/  any description.       When   every  little  blood-vessel in the lungs quiveis with the  rush of healthy blood, it is impossible to  have unhealthy lungs    When the walls of  the jStomach are nourii-hed with healthy  blood, dyspepsia and  indigestion' are impossibilities.    When the liver is supplied  with healthy blood it is bound to be active.  The  skin  that is nourished with  healthy;  blood will be clear and,fresh and glow with  health.

THE MINING REVIEW.  3  GOLD'S VARIETIES.  Differences  Between     the  Various Places.  Finds      of  Naturally, it might be supposed that  there is only one kind of gold, and it is  true that there is only   one   m?tal   of  that name ; hut it is   found   in   many  shapes, some of which   are   decidedly  curious.   For example, there   is moss  gold,' ' which   is   occasionally   discovered in masses nearly a foot :n  diameter.   If a hit of rock he  thickly  interlaced with gold veins    and   the  substance be. dissolved away, the m'etal is  apt to be left behind  in   this   strange  form.'  What is',wire gold" is   formed  in much the, same m,inner.     In   the  famous Cripple Creek region often  occurs in  little crystals   compose   fern-  like pieces.   Once in a long   while   a  gold crystal of considerable   size, 'say  ' half an inch,in diameter, and a perfect  octahedron,-' is   picked * up." 'In   the  Snake river,,Idaho, regular mining-   is  done for "flour gold," so called because  it occurs as ������ very fine   powder mixed  with the sands at the   bottom   of  the  stream.   These sands arc attacked   by  stern-wheel flai-boats, which are float  ing dredges propelled by steam.     The  flat-boat anchors in   a suitable  place,  and the gravel is hauled   aboard   with  buckets'ittaebed to an' endl'ess   chain.'  Tin; gold is caught   o,.   copper   plates  with the aid of  quicksilver,   and   the  refuse is carried overboard by a stream  of water.   The beach sands of the Oregon seacoast are  quite rich   in   gold.  ���������   which   is   very   pure,   though   finely  divided.   There has been a good   deal  said lately a iout the gold iu   ordinary  sea water, which actually docs amount  to about a cent and a   half  per "ton.  But the  water   of  the   Caspian   sea,  which  is very   salty,   contains' from  sixteen to eighteen cents' worth of gold  per ton, and it is there that   the   proposed works' should be set up- for  the  purpose of separating the yellow metal  from its   saline   solution   by   electrolysis.     Unfortun itely, separation   by  this process is expensive,   a   powerful  current  being   required.     The   characteristic placer gold of the' little bits  of nuggets   mixed.     Experts   confess  that they do not   know   how   nuggets  .are formed.   The most plausible guess  seems to be that they  are   accidental  accumulations of grains of gold washed  out of the-rocks. " ���������  be very good. Fur the week ending  the 11th inst., the shipments entered  at t!i'> port of Nelson a mounted to;  mattr- and bullion, Hall mines smelter,  48 tons. The ore from the different  mines amounted to 2,049 'ons, the  approximate value of which was $157,-  638. The total shipments for the  month of March, as reported, amounted  to 4,793 tons, valued at S392,3S-1. The  total ior February, in tons, was S,619,  value $172 222. The total for January  was 9,500 tons', and the value ^51,197,-  4S9, making'ji total so far for 1898 of  22.912 tons, valued at -S2,462,095.  ATTENTION   TRAVELLING   PUBLIC.  Our Mining Interests.  The Geogrnphi-;;irSu'rvej oj Canada  has issued its preliminary statement  of the mineral production of Canada.  It shows a total yield of $28,789,006���������  an increase ol $6,000,000 over 1896,-and  something'more than double" the output of 1889..- These returns show how  thoroughly awakened the Dominion  has become to the possibilities of  wealth, stored,' in the earth throughout  her wide domains. British Columbia,  a? was to be expected, heads the list in  point of production. rt marketed the  jnoat silver and lead, and added greatly  to tt.c copper production. The greatest increase in the'oppper yield, however was at Sudbury, in Ontario. The  yaliie of the copper product has grown  from $1,021,900 in 1896 to ������1501,6,60, or  by close upon 50 per cent. The value of  the silver output increased in the same  time from $2,149,503 to $3,822,905, that  of lead from $721,159 to 81,396,853, and  that of n ckel from $1,18S,990 to Sl,-  399,176. The greatest increase, however, is in gold. In 1896 the production of this metal passed alL records,  and reached $2,190,000. The increase  in the 12 months was 123 per cent.  While all the gold producing districts  'of Canada contributed to the enhanced  production of that precious metal, it is  from the discovery of the placer mines  in the Yukon district that the larger  proportion of the new gold came last  year. Trail creek brought forth $j,-  P00.P0O in gold. The records of the  nast two years in thp three divisions  of mineral production are as   follows:  1S97. 1896.  -Metallic $13,990,234 $8,055,915i  ^on-metallic    10,007,831 9,97G,33S!  Structural and clay products    4,415,108 4,327.512.  Asbestos shows a gain in production  betwdin 1S96 and 1897 from 12,259 tons  to 25,202 tons. The market value, however, fell to $324,700 ' from $429,850.  Coal increased from 3 745,716 tons to  3,876.201 tons, but, in value only from  ������7,220 462 to S7,286,257. Petrpjp.um  dropped both in output and value, the  latter having been $1,155,047 in 1896,  and but $1,011,546 in 1897. Phospate  is censing to hold a place. In 1890 the  annual output was valued at $361,045;  last year it was $3,984. These returns,  while they show the uncertainty of  mining, indicate the fact that the Do  minion is making vast strides in that  particular industrj.  TORTURING SKIN DISEASES.

It has often been said that '"Uneasy  lies the head that wears the crown,"  and no doubt, Premier Laurier felt it  before now. The people of Manitoba  kicked and. kicked until :hey got'the  most of the duties off lumber, and  now the British Columbia government,  i" going to make an effort to get them  on again. How Laurier will be able  to meet the wishes of both provinces  in this respect is the question.  It would not be amiss "if tho parents  of several boys in town, who are in the.  habit of carrying a number .of'miscellaneous door and other keys, would  deprive ihem o' these articles. Under  any circumstances their possession is  a temptation, and one that may sometimes lead.boys, otherwise disposed to  do right, to do wrong. When the boy's  have no need of the keys, carrying  them can never lead to anything useful. ���������:;'-."���������.'���������'  Two men, who ought to have known  better, were fined'$5 apiece and the  costs of the court ea more, or'in all  $20, in the police court last week, for  stealing wood from a neighbor. There  is no excuse for acts like that iri a  wooded country like-this.' All that  these men had to do was to take a saw,  cut wood for a week or so, and they  could have got all they wanted for  nothing, pay a teams!er that ������20 'or  hauling it, and they would have had a  winter's wood, and saved themselves  the. humiliation into which their laziness brought them.  Mr. Wm. Whyte and  party,  of the  C. P. R.,were in the city on ^ ecinesday  returning from a tour of inspection to  the coast.    He says the -rush   for the  Klondyke  is   something' astonishing.  He estimates that ���������-���������100,000,000 will be  spent   in    transportation,    provisions,-  buildings, outfits, etc.,   by  Klondykers  this year, and all  to secure  a ocss-ible  S15,000,000 in gold,.   He says the hard  ships,   privations    and   losses   of  the  many   must  be something ' appalling  [ the coming year, to say nothing of the  loss of life; but you-cannot check pen-  pie in a rush for gold, and it might not  be wisdom  to try to do it.   He  anticipates a year of great activity  in mining in the Kootenay, arid his company  are making even-   effort to get their  share of the business, and to facilitate  mining operations. -  ���������Mr. Vallance, of. H. Byer's .firm, was  in Kaslo last week.  R.
