At j day evening in tlie Miners' Union hall.  The Nelson News of Wednesday says:  I-L N. Galer, business manager of the  Granby smelter, arrived- last evening  from Ferine, where he has been looking  over the strike situation. ' He said that  ��������� apparently the fate of the agreement  now hangs in the balance, as yesterday  the miners of the Coal Creek mines were  to decide whether or not they would accept the agreement. Morrisey has  r'bVv'V'.'-.-tp do so by a heavy vote,  but Michel has accepted it. The vote at  the latter placo -was not made public.  Mr. Galer said that he did not feel very  sanguine of the result of the Coal  Creek voting, although hoping for the  best.  At the Gran by smelter they now have  four days' supply of coke on hand. They  have been pulling along as best they  could on coke from the coast, hoping  that "a settlement woalcl shortly be  reached,at the Crow's Nest mines, but  if the decision of the Coal Greek miners  was adverse it woukl undoubtedly settle  into a long, hard fought content. As far  as his own company was concerned it  means hut one thing. The last of the  week they would cbse down both smelter and mines, and keep them closed not  Grand Forks the smelter was in shape  for a big season's run, and if it had not  been for the fuel shortage it would probably have been run at its full capacity  all spring and summer.  ���������Local News  Notes.  E. R. Atherton is spending the week  in New Denver.  The press of eastern Canada, especially Ontario, are all Gamey just now.  The present soft weather has given  the Payne ample jvater for power purposes.  Thos. Jones, the Iola zinc buyer, is  reported to be ou his way back to the  Slocan.  Mr. J.

This action would be taken only with  the greatest regret, but under the circumstances no other line of action was  open to them. It would result in the  laying oirof between 500 and 600 men  directly, aud of course many others  would be indirectly affected. The last  month had been a most unsatisfactory  one for boUi their mines' and smelter,  and they could not afford to keep it up.  What the outcome at Ferine would be if  the agreement was turned down he  could not say. The members of the conciliation committee felt that they had  done their best, but if the men refused  to accept the findings of their own appointed reprcsentatiyes it was useless to  try further for a settlement. The results so far had been most disappointing. The bringing together of the union  representatives and the management  had been u, task of no small difficulty,  and when this was accomplished it was  felt that the most difficult part of the  trouble was past. When the company  conceded the points mentioned in the  agreement no further trouble was anticipated, and as the reports sent out,  indicated, each day a settlement was expected, The closing of the agreement  was drawn out a good deal longer, than  .waB anticipated, but both parties'finally  signed. After this the action of the  Morrissey union came as agreatsur-  prise to all, although it was known that  there was very bitter feeling among a  certain section of the men.  The mines of the Granby company  now running are situated at Phoenix,  and although since the beginning of the  ing the train at Summit.  The annual meeting of the Provincial  Teachers' Association will be held in  the Selkirk hall, at Reyelstoke, on the  15th, 15th and ICtli.of next month.  Mr. F. G. Mclntyre of Salmon Arm,  brother of Rev. R. J. Mclntyre, and  Earnest Davie of Revelstehe were visiting at the Methodist parsonage this  week.  The builder's strikeat St. Catherines  has been amicably settled and the agreement is to run for ten years. The men  are to receive an advance ranging from  2 to 4 1-2 cents per hour.  Reports from the Fisher Maiden are  given out 15 inches high grade was  struck in an entirely new and unexpected vein during tlie course of development work.  It is expected that the big St. Eugene  mine will shortly resume work again.  Manager Cronin has cut his California  trip short and ia now on his way to the  mineaccompanied by the mill superintendent.  The Queen Bess mine closed down  Tuesday, for reasons only known by the  management. As a consequence the  12 men who have been working at the  mine were laid off work and came down  the hill Tuesday.  The ladies aid of theMethodist church  will give a social evening in Ihe basement of the church Tuesday evening  next. Games and other amusement  will be provided. Refreshments servo'd.  Admission 25cents.  Although the contest comprising in  all 5G games that has occupied the curlers attention for the past two months  has not been concluded, it is now sufficiently advanced   to show  the   winners  The Daily Pioneer at Sault Ste  Marie, Ont, is Gutted  By a Blaze.  We received word earlyin the week  that a few days before Mr. C. Cliffe. late  of Sandon, suffered severely by fire, and  the Soos' bright daily, the Pioneer, was  nearly wiped out. The fire is supposed  to have been caused by adefective chimney, and started in the top storey. The  blaze had made good headway before it  was discovered, and before the firemen  reached the scene after the alarm was  sounded, the whole storey was in flames.  The building was a large frame structure and the blaze spread rapidly. One  of the young employees was sleeping in  a room near the burning portion, and  knew nothing of his danger until awakened by firemen. The brigade confined  themselves to keeping tho flames from  spreading and going below. After two  and a half hours hard fighting the firemen succeeded in their efforts, but the  printing plant was badly damaged and  a large   stock   of   stationery destroyed.  of (irst and second prizes.     So   far  48 I Fortunately the   type-setting machines  games in the series have been played,  leaving 11 unfinished matches. It is altogether likely that these remaining contests will not be played as it would not  give any of the remaining participants  a chance to recoup themselves sufficiently to either hope to secure first or  second pi'ace.  The mostenthusiastic match throughout the series was the final contest between Scott and,Cavanaugh to break  the tie for first place Thursday night,  and was witnessed by quite a concourse  of people. The former winning by the  score oi 12 points to 7 on heavy ice. Itis  probable if the ice should hold out the  club will arrange another schedule between the married and single members.

Mr. Cli'ie has been' publishing the  Daily Pioneer since last fall, and after  overcoming many obstacles was just  getting on his feet, when he was nearly  wiped out. He carried no insurance  and estimates his loss  at   about $2,000.  Although unfortunate he is not undaunted, and has made arrangements  to start up again as soon as possible. A  new building and the necessary plant  have been secured, and in a' few daya  The Pioneer will appear every evening  as usual.

There is a movement on foot among  the curlers to get up another schednle  of games between the married and single men of the club.

Tie Mining Review.  SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1903.  on  The excitement in   Ontario over the  Gamey charges against Hon.

Oneof the most  marked changes proposed is in the matter of skelp, which will, if possible,  be  to narrow the scope of the enquiry.   In  this they had the support  of   many influential   men   outside   tho   assembly,  notably   Goldwin   Smj.t.h, whose  trenchant pen is   severely  condemning the  corrupt    Ross     administration.     Mr.  Smith is strongly in   favor of   a parliamentary enquiry into the  charges, and  in an interview stated that in  this case  as in all of a similar nature, parliamect  should be guardian of the  guardian of  its own honor.   He also is  in  favor of  a larger scope being given to the investigation than that proposed by  the government.   He expressed the conviction  that the money employed   to  purchase  the support of Mr. Gamey was from the  treasury of the party, which must there  fore have been cognizant of   the   use to  which it was applied.    He was strongly  opposed to the employment of judges in  this semi-judicttl manner.

Hon. A. G. Blair's surplus of .196,822  for 1S02 has vanished into  thin air, and  in its stead there is a  Jive, vigorous de-r  licit of fL. 000,000.    Mr. Blaii's own  report for 1902 shed expected  light on tlie  subject.    When he announced   his surplus some months ago his iigim s were :  Earnings, !j'5,G71,3S5;   running expenses, $5,574,563; surplus, $96,822.  To his capital outlay of .14,670,599,  however, Mr. Blair charged many items  which should have been paid outof revenue, For rolling stock he spent.12,-  066,879. Included in this expenditure  were sums for repairs and the replacing  of locomotives and cars, which aggregate hundreds of thousands. The most  ordinary demands on running expenses  were transferred to capital account, and .  the whole reached a total of ,f 1,000,000. |  In spite of this   unheard of extravagance   the   plant  of   the   railway has  greatly  deteriorated.     Mr.   Blair  has  fewer cars and locomotives than in 1901.  He has made no allowance-for.wear and  tear, and if this phrase of the situation  be considered the loss to   the   people is  infinitely greater.   AIJ   common   sense  business methods employed by progressive railroads have been   ostracized   by  his department, and  the only  possible  solution   of   the  situation   is   to make  greater and greater calls on  the credit  of. the country.

THE FERNIE STRIKR.  All chances of an early settleimnt of  the Fernie coal strike were rudely dashed aside by the vote of the miners at  Morrissey and Coal Creek against the  agreement ratified by their executive  officers, a few days ago. Wo don't think  there is a parallel case in the history of  organized labor in this country, where  men on strike turned down (heir own  self-appointed mediators as the Crow's  Nest miners have done.   In plain words  the Western   Fee1 ration  officials have  j  j  been given an a  ounding ��������� elajj   in   the  s  ���������  face by the ino ; they tried   to, benefit.  It seems hard to find out really what the  coal miners struck for in the first place,  while just now it is more of a puzzle  than ever. It was thought the chief  object of the strike was to secure recognition of the union. The committee  appointed by the miners .secured this  important concession from the company  and an additional, increase in wages of  five cents per ton. This was considered  satisfactory by the Federation officials  and the agreement put to a vote. -The  ballot revealed an astonishing result.  Michel accepted the agreement by a  very small majority, but Morrissey and  Coal Creek repudiated it by a large vote.  The action of the miners places their  executive in a very humiliating position. That body gave the miners Ihoir  eervices to secure the best concessions  possible. They were chosen by the men  affected to.plead their cause before the  conciliation committee and whatever  the outcome agreeable to them would be  accepted by. the miners. The latter's  committee spent over a week battling  for the demands of  the  men and sue  ceeding in getting the company to give  a raise in wages in two  districts and to  recognize .the union.   This was   understood to be what the   men wanted   and  an agreement to that effect  was  drawn  up and accepted by the oiiicials of both  parties concerned in the difpute.   The  whole question was laid before the men  the proposed settlement submitted to a  vote. ��������� The men in turn   repudiated the  agreement, of their own committee, and  the work of weeks was   thanklessly  set  aside.'  The miners have disgusted thoir  ofliicals, lost the sympathy of   the people and are likely to be left to shift for  themselves without the financial   aid of  the   Western   Federation.   The   latter  have done all thoy could   to   urge   the  miners to accept tho settlement, but s'o  far without success.   The coal company  have shown themselves willing to settle  nhe differences and have gone as  far as  they could   to   end   the  trouble.   The  miners have practically shown   they do  not know what they want,   and   unless  something unforeseen occurs, a fight to  tho bitter end'on the part of the company iff expected.   The miners in turning down the agreement of, their execu-  ��������� .   u ........  tive have themselves struck one of the  hardest blows organized labor in tin's  province could possibly gut, and .'should-  the Federation withdraw its support, we  are of the opinion that when the Crow's  Nest collieries resume operations again  there will be no union among the men,  as was the case at the Northport smelter some time ago. On the vote of the  Fernie miners depended the fate of the  Boundary minps and smelters. The  Gran by at Grand Forks will close down  this week and cut down its forces at the  mines. In all over 500 men will be laid  off, and tlie. company announce they  will not start up again until the trouble  is permanently settled. The mines at  Rossland will be, affected  to   the  same  around the smelttirs is  blocked, which  will nut belong, ore shipments will curtailed, and   this means a cutting down  of the forces at the mines.   The smelli-r  companies have been keeping (heir furnaces going under unsatisfactory conditions, with coke from the coast, in hope  of a settlement  being   reached   before  now.  They cannot do so any longer and  a shut down is inevitable.   It is too bad  that a small handful of disgrnnted men  should be allowed to   play surh   havoc  with the business interests of the whole  country for the sake of a lew petty and  imaginary grievances,   ft is high time  the provincial parliament adoped some  measure to prevent  strikes   for trivial  reasons and keep out the foreign agitators who cause all the   trouble.     Until  this is done the labor unions of British  Columbia will   continue   to   be   made  the catspaw of alien dictators from the  other side, who don't cute a fig for  the  interest of the   men or country as   long  as thier salaries are .assured.  riOKBTS  ' TO ALL POINTS  1  a  VIA  The brilliant career of Major General  Sir Hector A.

Tlie Electro-Magnetic Process at  Leadville Has Proved   .  a    Success.  The 1  me  After months of   experimental   work  the result of which   has   added   a  new  mill to the Leadvi lie district, the process  of electro-magnetic separation has been  proven a success by the newzinc separation mill erocted by the  Resurrection  Mining Company.     One of   the   three  ;      separators of this plant has been put in  operation, and before  the first  of   the  month all of the machines will be   running at full capacity.  The. mill has been  erected by the Resurrection company in  order to handle   successfully   the   low  grade zinc-sulphide   ore   and   separate  the zinc so that the value of the ore can  be saved.  Tlie mill is one of the largest   in   the  camp, and introduces for the first  time  the   three   Wetherell electro-magnetic  processes.    The ore is first  carried   by  means of  a   bell,   conveyor   to   a   ball  crusher, a new device  in  that  district,  and said to be very effective in  pulverizing the material.    It is a large cylinder filled with   steal   balls,   and   these  grind the ore to the required fineness.  The ore thon passe-: over 12 Wilfley  tables, four of which are used for the  .concentration of the is limes', .which are  . caught in a Dimmick classifier. The  main product sought from the Wilfleys  is a high grade lead-iron, and as the  tables are doing exceptionally good  work this is fine shipping material.  The middlings go  to   the   Wetherell  separator, after first being run through  a dryer   The ore is conveyed across the  field of the magnetic action on a broad  belt and several distinct  products   are  obtained,    When the   material   passes  through the poles of the first magnetic,  pyrrhotite is first withdrawn,   as   it   is  most highly susceptible to themagnetic  influence.   It passes offon a  belt   running at right angles to   the  main   one.  Next carbonate of ore and 6ilica is withdrawn, and in tho other belts zinc from  48 to 50 percent, is drawn off.'; by ,the  powerful and mysterious force.   Finally  nothing but tlie iron is left on the' main  belt.   This makes a high grade shipping  pinona I've eaten have  given  colic.  I tell you it's tough when a'man .has  a cold.

Full reportsconcerning (lie mining industry and prospects of all  points  visited will be prepared,  and  many  of  these papers will be   published   in   the  New   York   Engineering   and   Mining  Journal, a standard  publication.     The  institution numbers among its members  some of the foremost miningauthorities  living, and  witnessing   for   them selves  the mineral wealth of British Columbia  and tho Yukon,  these  gentlemen   will  ever remember their impressions,   and  when the occasion offers will  not  hesitate to voice them.  . The various   cities in   this   province  through which the mining men will pass  will shortly commence preparations   for  their reception, for their arrival is   not  off.      The   Canadian   Pacific  Railway  . Company will handle the excursion  till  it is landed in Skagway, after which tho  White pass road will care for the party.  The transportation  companies arc  already preparing to handle thecxcurcc  .sionists.  One train will leave Montreal on July  9.   Another train will leave St. Paul on  July 10, and both will   meet   at  Moose  Jaw on July 11.     The   Montreal   train  will cme west on the main line,-and the  one from St. Paul on the Canadian Soo.  From Moose J Jaw the main line   of   the  C. P. R. will lie taken to Medicine Hat,  and the excursionists will there branch  off on the Crow's branch,'finally" reaching Kootenay Landing on July 13.   Krom  . there they will branch out visiting  all  the important mining  centres   of   the  interior   before   going   to    Vancouver,  where they all meet again and   journey  north to the Yukon county.  The length.of their inspection in the  various mining sections all told will be  about four weeks.  ������  Tho Canadian  Smelter.  The closing down of the lead furnaci-  at the'Trail smelter has caueed .the refinery to dieciintiui; operations for trie  present, after having some large fdiip-  mente to eastern Canada; says the Trail  News.  During the last few months practically all the lead Eastern Canada has  consumed in the way of manufacturing  pipe, shot, cartridges, etc., lias come  from the Trail refinerv; and it hiih  proved to be of exceptionally good quality. Enquiries have been received for  this lead from European points5, where]  it is especially desired forcorroding pur- j  poses,  .Further-delays.have'been made in the  movement of coke for the smelter,   but  the. latest reports are to the effect  that  it is now moving satisfactorily and large  shipments will'soon be  received.     The  stock of lead ore having been practically  exhausted, the works will be started on  copaer, one furnace being blown   in   at  first and another one following as soon  as shipments from Rossland justify   it.  There is  no  danger  whatever  of; the  Roselandshipments having to  be   discontinued, as the smelter has plenty of  storage space, and their is enough  coke  in the yards and in transit to take care  of the shipments from Rossland for several weeks.  The smelter plans are rapidly maturing for the construction of aslime treatment plant to produce fine silver and  fine gold.  M. L. GRImMETT, 1,1,.

C.   Asseciation.  Tho people of the.'jS'orthwest   Tern-  torioF are getting a big agitation worked  tip over th������ I inn her trade combine. The  latest   information   coining   f.ioni   the  capital-of the territories, Regina,   is   to  the effect that   the  Northwest   government is likely to appoint a commission  to, look into che matter.    The principal  cause leading  up   to   the   agitation   is  that the retail lumber merchants of;the  Territories and Manitoba are not   quite  satisfied with the manner in which they  are deal   with   by   the  J}.   0.   lumber  manufacturers.      Some   time ago   the  C,.P. B. made  a   reduction   in   freight  rates-to the territories on behalf of  the  wholesalers.    Instead of a slight reduction in ihe scale of prices there   was   a  corresponding increase.  To understand how the whole lumber  trade is worked, it is necessary   to   understand the connect ion   between   the  retailers of Manitoba and N. W. T.  and  the   manufacturers   of   lumber.     The  Western Lumberman's Association is a  body composed of nearly all the lumber  dealers of Manitoba and   the   N ' W. T.  There is also an honorary membership,  which comprises every lumber   manufacturer from Ihe Lake   of .the   Woods  country to the pacific   cotut,   including  nearly all the - mills   of   the   province.  The honorary membeiship is ihe ruling  influence in the association   practically  as they supply the lumber and lo  them  many of the retailers are under  obllga-1  There is a reciprocal relation between  the honoray ������.,embers and the oidinary  members.    The honorary members--are  permitted to supply the  lumber  to   no  other outside tho ordinary membership  of the association.     The   penality   for  violating this   rule   is   expulsion,   and  boycott bv all  the retail   membership.  The .ordinary  retail   members  are   in  turn bound to   buy   stocks   only   from  the honorary  members.    The   penalty  for violating this rule is also expulsion,  and a   practical   freezeout   by   all   the  honoiary members,     These -rules   and  their   frequent   enforcement   make,  of  course, a particularly  effective   weapon  Company is  behind   the   stakers .who  have filed   applications   for   extensive  portions of the coal and petroleum lands  which are considered to exist   in   East  Kootenay says   the   Victoria   Colonial;.  These coal lands are under a   reservation, and are embrace   in   block' numbered 4 593.   The C. P. Ii. has not, it is  understood,    taken    any ' proceedings;  against the etakers on block 4,593,   but  have  commenced   action   to   estuhrfsx?-  Litie against vendees of the government i  who have been granted titles on   block I  3,594.   The 0. P. R. contend  that   this ,  laiter block belongs to them  by   virtue  of an ngreenient in which it was   to   be  given to them to make   up   for   a   difi-  ciency in the alternate   sections   under  the charter of the Columbia ec Western.  It appears ihat a  grant of block 4.594  was'prepared, but rescinded before   be-  j ing delivered to the 0. P, R..    The gov- i  eminent tlien sold portions of 4,594   to  various portions.

That rare element, uranium, husbeen  found recently in the Pittsburg poup.of  mineral claims a short  distance  north  of B msbiirg.   The incident which led to  its discovery is  rather unique.     Thos.  Mulligan, owner of the property,  while  working in the. mine  had   occasion   to  use   water   from    a    stream    running  through tlie lower tunnel   of the   mine  wilh which to temper steel.     The   ex-1  treme tension of the steel tempered   in  thib water aroused Mr. Mulligan's curi'  osity.    Knowing the affinity of uranium  for iron, he concluded   that   the   water  contained uranium in   solution,   which  waa the cause of (ho tensile qualities of  the steel.     lie had the Q������C of the mine  tested for uranium, which gave frcm   5  to 10 per cent.

SANDON  For  s*  ������.f intimidation, and us will be seen it  has an edge for both those nithin anci  without the association.  A feature of the association isitscom-  prehensive grip of the retail trade.   Its  policy is restriction for the   purpose   of  monopoly. .-The executive allows  one  member for each tract   of   tern'torv   or j  population, making his 'territory   large I  enough to ensure a very lucrative  business   for the   resident   member,   even  without   monopoly   prices   which   are  everywhere exacted.     To  protect   this  member in his monopoly, no other   retail dealer is permitted to   do  business  in the same territory, a  simple- starvation procees being very effective.     The  rule .binds each member to  respect  the  territory of his neighbor.  The working of this system of almost  absolute monopoly is confined to towns  which have only the one railway. Of  course, where there is railway competition extending to mills independent of  the combine, this, monopolistic system I  is not nearly so effective.
