HARRIS'AND THE GITY.;n,itteeasl,orUime^toi"te-iewM,    ': Harris, to settle the  differences of  the  o ^,1 past.   That gentlmnan was awav ������t the  Settlement Reached This Weekj������lme, but ���������pon hisrei��������� J,;���������:  Of All Long-standing  Differences.  The city council have brought ahout  an amicable settlement of long standing  difficulties between J. M. Harris and  ���������    the city in   the   matter  of water, light  and taxes,  and  the   agreement will be  ratified in a few days.   The terms of the  settlement are not made public yet, but  it.is understood liberal concessions have I  been made on boLh sides,' and  tlie city  will secure water and light rates satisfactory to all concerned. 'This is only  what we expected.  When Mayor Grim-  mett and the present.board were chosen  to   govern   the   city,   we ventured the  opinion that with the conciliatory spirit  characteristic  of   the   Mayor,  that all  differences   between   the  city and Mr.  Harris would shortly be at an end. That  we were not   far  out   in our remark is  amply evidenced   by the agreement of  a few days ago, which only   awaits   the  official seal, and   which   will be added  in a few days.   The action of the Mayor  and Aldermen is commendable, and assures our citizens their interests will be  looked after in a proper manner by the  present board, instead of being neglected aa in.the past.   There was no "occasion in the least for the city to be without street lights   and water  supply for  fire protection, the past two years, if our  constantly changing councils and their  advisers   had not   been  so domineering and antagonistic in   their demands  of Mr. Hanis.   Some of them went so  far as to say they could force that gentleman   to   furnish water  f6r  city fire  protection   without   paying him a cent.  The scheme was tried, and the absurdity of the idea was brought home to those  adopting it, who only burnt their fingers  for their lack of knowledge.   The water  was promptly shut off,   but   Mr. Harris  was -considerate  enough   to keep the  hydrants in   good   repair, which many  another -personwould   not  have done,  not as a favor to the council, but to protect our citizens in case  of   fire, which  precaution was thrown at its mercy by  the   then  governing   board,   and 'this  state of affairs has existed to thepresent  sought the   first   opportunity   to   meet  him, and an interview was held the first  of the week.   The  whole difficulty was  thoroughly sifted,   and   an'agreement  reached which will heal the gores of the  past.   This is as it should  be.   No  one  has done more to build up Sandon than  Mr. Harris.   Any movement calculated  to promote the welfare of   the   city   always had his support and financial aid.  In dealihg with churches and other in-  stutions in regard to water and light, he  __. -..^^.i uiiu ijus ueen on a tou  has been generosity itself.   It   is" true, | months'  visit in theeastreturned Mon  as some aver, he made his money here,  but it is equally so tie spent it lavishly  in building up the town;   Others have  mad",   fortunes   here   and   squandered  them elsowhere.   If our councils of the  past   had   treated   Mr. Harris with the  courtesy he   merited, instead   of   arrogance, the city's neglect of the past two  years would   be   unrecorded.   The present  council   have  set-the pace.   The  olive branch has been sincerely held out  and in the  same  spirit accepted. 4 We  have had petty strifes   long enough, by  which the city suffered, and  now for its  welfare let us have an era of peace.  We  earnestly hope  the mutual  agreement  entered this week between   Mr. Harris  and the city will   be  of  longstanding,  and while the present Mayor and Aid-  men are at the head of affaire little dan-  gerof rupture may befeared. And when  the mining industry enters on   its new  era, as it will shortly, the   miners   employed in our honeycombed hills will be  2.00 PER YEAR  "Shady" Giegerich   took   a   look  at  Sandon Wednesday.

It is   thought a public  meeting of all the miners will be called  today, at which a   lait  appeal will be  made.   As far as can be ascertained,the  commission satisfactorily arranged matters dealing with the situation at Mor-  rissey and Michel, but the coal company  want a reduction   of  the "wage scale at  the Coal Creek mine, and this seems to  be the stumbling block.  W. C. Brace, of Denver, Col.,  was   in  the city the first of the week.      He   is  a mining man of high standing and represents the Canyon City Smelting Co.,  at Canyon City.

This would shut  out   American  and all foreign products in every   form,  and give B. C. products the whole Canadian field ; and place  us,  at   the   same  time, on an equal footing with all other  nations as  a   competitor   with   manufacturers, in all other countrim   where  either raw lead or   manufacturers were  required.   It would by no mean's "assure  our producers of the three and  one-half  cents a pound.the  American   producers  purely of an  artificial   character���������such  as with a little wisdom our people could  easily bring about   an   equally   advantageous condition for themselves if properly undertaken.   The Americans, with  their  usual   alertness    for    benefiting  themselves, some time ago placed  high  duties on  lead   and   its   manufactured  products so as to keep' their  home   industry free from all alien   competitors.  This is simply what the mining people  of the Slocan are trying to   do;  to prevail on  the   Dominion   government   to  enact similar   legislation   to   properly  place our own  country   independently  and free from all foreign countries.

The reason assigned for this drastic acr.  tion on the part of (he ex-premier is on  account of   the   determination   of the  miners to affiliate .themselves with  the  Western" Federation.   Dunsmuir, some  time ago, informed the miners  that he  was not against   them   forming .a local  union among themselves to   help  each  other in time of need, and that he himself would contribute towards the fund,  but he would not submit lo   them joining an alien labor union and allow himself to be dictated to by a foieign   body  as   to   how   he should work his "in in es.

SATURDAY, MARCH 21, 1903.  /    A GOOD OMEN'.  The announcement that theOanadian  Smelting Works at Trail will built a  Iea'l refinery without d������!ay, may be  taken as an indication tnar. the requisition of the Slocan mine owners lor a  higher tariff oh lead and its products,  will be granted by the Dominion government before the session is over. The  present government although adverse  to raising the tariff, from party principles, have shown themselves willing  to do what they can to remedy injustice   to   any   home  industry, when the  in the working of their mines, and being deprived of the home market in  their endeavor to build up an active  although infant industry, but on account of adverse conditionsencountered  the mines were forced to closedown.  The assurance of refining, corroding  and other industries starting up if the  tariff was raised as requcs ed, was also  brought before, the ministers' notice,  who were jm-atly impressed by the force  of argument laid before them by the  delegates    These facts coupled with the  j. i mmii  ,. ,   ,,     ,���������    ., -,     ... to coast will open up the Saskatchewan  action   of   the Iran MueJting company ,  class of settlers arriving are the most  desirable. Thousands of them have  had experience in farming in Eastern  Canada and the prairie lands of the  Western States, and can stand the  rigors of a hard winter. The phenom-  inal wheat crops of the past two years  in Manitoba and the Territories has attracted world-wide attention, and the  yield this year, if the season is at all  fair, promises to eclipse anything of  the past. The proposed building of the  Grand Trunk Pacific railwav from coast  Sandon, The Leading- Merchant  Tailor in the Kootenay Country  TICKETS  ���������      TO ALL POINTS  an  VJA  are significant. It is practically certain  the Trail smelter would not build a refinery under present conditions to'compete against the American Smelter  trust. This with the reception accorded  the delegates by the government, leads  facts are placed bofore them,   The lead I us to venture the opinion   that  the re  producers of British Columbia have  gone about to secure their needs in a  businesslike way. They have brought  the. distress of the silver-lead districts  before the government, and have shown  conclusively that the sentiments of the  whole ..province are in entire accord with  the miners in their demands. The remedy has been pointed out to the proper  authorities and is within their power to  grant.  No bounty or money in any form is  asked for, but simply to raise the tariff  on lead and its products to assure the  home and protect a young and promising industry from the onslaught of  foreign competition. The delegates who  went to the capital were cordially received by the Prem ier and h is cabinet,  who expressed, themseivegas fully aware  of the' distress of the industry and  districts they represented, and promised their support to secure the remedial legislation; desired. The matter  was discussed in every detail. The delegates pointed out  the   many disadvan-  quest of the mine owners will be granted  before Iomr. The raising of the tariff  means the redemption of the Slocan.  Even with lead at its present price,  there seems to be little assurance of the  mines starting up again until the decision the. government on the tariff is  announced. The mine owners want to  resume operations under conditions  that will enable them to work for an  indefinite period, instead of fits and  starts, in accordance willi the rise and  fall of the market, as has been the case  in tho past. We have it on-good authority that if the tariff is raised mining  in the Slocan will enter on a new era,  and the coming summer promises to be  the brightest in its history. !  Valley for settlement. The land in this  region is of the very best for wheat  growing and the domain of this rich and  fertile valley is large enough to accomodate thousands of settlors.

Experiments    Extending ' Over  Almost a Year   Are' at  ���������    ��������� L,ast Complete.  The inauguration of   important   improvements at the   Canadian   Smelting  works, Trail, is announced.     The   experiments in the refining departmentof  the smelter are practically   completed,  afterlhaving extended over a  period   of  almost   a   year.     Now   drawings   and  plans are   being   made   for   a. refining  plant to reduce from 10 Jo   12   tons   of  pure metalic lead perday.    An interesting feature of the ;' aiis is that they will  probably include apparatus to treat the  slimes for the production of pure silver,  pure gold and copper sulphates., ..Two  large   electric   generators   have    been  ordered for the new plant and it is probable that two generators   of   twice   the  capacity of those used   for the, experimental work will be purchased .and  installed at.once, making a batteiy of six  generators.   The'generators are u'ilized  . for transforming thealternatingor three  phase electrical current into the direct  current used exclusively in refining.  The electroiyr.ic method of lead refining in practice successfully at the Trail  smelter has been described at considerable, length from time to time in the  technical publications. Its merit lies  in economy of application and excellence of resultsobtained. Thcstatement  is made that the metalic lead produced at  the refinery in connection with the  smelter is of no less than .999 purity.  Don't Forget The Old Folks.

Why yon should buy  FAIR    PLAY  Diamonds  Explode.  It has long been known fbatdiamonds,  especially the class known as "rose diamonds," are likely to   explode   if  subjected only to what would seem  a  very  ordin try degree of heat, such as strong  rays from the sun, etc.   It is  now   believed that the explosions are the result  of the rapid expansion of certain volatile j  liquids enclosed   in   cavities   near   the  centre of these precious stones.  A great  many   diamonds,   even ,  though    cut,  mounted and worn as gems of perfection  are stiil in   an   unfinished   condition���������  that is, the liquid drop from which   the  stone is being formed has not as yet deposited all (if its "pure crystals of  carbon."   Thece movable drops mayoccas-  ionally beseen with the naked eye,  When this is the case a strong microscope will give the drop the appearance  of a bubble in 111 e'"fluid of a Catpenter's  level. It is also highly probable that  besides liquid inenti'iied iluse cavities  may contain certain gases under great  tension. This being the case, one may  readily comprehend how a very small  amount of heat would cause tho liquid  and gas to expand to such a degree that  tlie diamond would give way with all  the characteristics of a ininiatine explosion.
