Pass a Resolution Strongly Repudiating Provincial Min-    .  ing   Association.  The mine owners met in the city hall  Monday in response to the notice of  meeting sent ont a few davs previous.  All the leading mines.of theSlocan were j  represented, the East Kootenay district on account of tlie short notice  given could not Bend delegates in. time,  while Nelson holding a large meeting  the same evening detained a number  ^   -���������  from that section.  Mr. A.   C.   Garde,   manager   of. the  Payne, opened the  meeting.     He   explained that he  had  been   advised   by  Messrs. RetaHack and Pratt, the delegates at Ottawa, to call the lead men together and take   strong action   against  tire resolution passed recently   by   the  Provincial Mining Association,   which  would do irrepairable harm to the lead  mining industry of this province if not  epeedily acted upon.   It was on this account the meeting was called upon such  short notice.    Mr. Garde laid that this  was the occasion of tliere being present  and asked them to"elect a chairman and  proceed to business.  It wae moved aiid seconded that A. C.  Garde be appointed chairman and N. J.  Cavanautfh secretary, the motion being  carried the meeting opened.  On rising the chairman  stated   that  they were asking the government for  a  $15  per   ton   bonis  on    lead     mined  to  go   to   the   producer,    but     they  were  offset   by , the '.resolution   of the  Mining    Association.      He    himself,  thought that body had overstepped tlie  mark by being misinformed on the subject, and as they had   resolutions  prepared he would call on the secretary to  read them and VV, S. Drewry to explain  the different clauses.  The resolutions were   read   and   Mr.  Drewry proceeded to explain.   He said  that in his opinion the Provincial Mining Association made a great   mistake  in taking the initiative  on  the   bonus  question on lead without /iret consulting the miners, and did not think it was  due to any   motive  calculated   to  do  harm, but   exactly the   reverse.     Mr.  Leslie Hill, the lead miners'representative on the executive board, was absent  in Ontario when  tlie association   last  met, and consequently-, were  not  consulted.    The smokers were represented  by Mr. J. J. Campbell of Nelson, and it  waa evident the smelting interests were  well looked after. The resolution passed  asked that $0 a ton be given to the smelters and refineries and only .$4 a ton   to  :��������� present distress one iota,' the' smelter  men would received nearly all. "��������� Mr.  Drewry continued, stating tlie bonus  granted should apply to the , producer  irrespective of where the'ore was smelted or refined. He pointed out that with  the mines all working the Canadian  smelters could not handled the output  of the Slocan to eay nothing of the large  lead,mines like the St.. Eugene, North  Star and Sullivan in. East Kootenay.  Therefore, the grant of the government  should be given to the producer and let  . genoral ,  bem-fit of the lead indnstiy in  be it further  'Resolved, that k duty of ht least thirty  per cent, should be placed on' that product, and be it f mi her  Resolved, that these resolutions be  telegraphed to Messrs.

Cavanaugh in a speech with  facts and figures on smelting rates,  made some startling announcements of  MET OFTEN THIS WEEK.

Coming to the clause  in regard to a duty of 30 per cent., on  carroded lead, M.r. - Drewry explained  that at first he could not see any reason  for it, but it was brought to his notice  that the Trail smelter is making preparations to corrode their surplus and  consequently he was in favor of the  duty. By doing so the producers would  help the smelters, and they in turn  would benefit the miners by purchasing  their ores.  Considerable diecussion followed after ���������  which the resolution, of which the following is a copy, was voted on  and unanimously carried :  (1) Whereas, ata meeting of the  silver-lead miners' association held at  Sandon, B. C, December 10th, 1002,  resolutions were passed asking the  Canadian government to place certain  duties on lead ores, and leadproduete,  and  \l) Whereas, the government has refused to grant the duties asked in said  resolutions, but have intimated a willingness to grant an adequate bonus to  the miners, on lead mined in Canada,  and  (3) Whereas, the executive committee of the Provincial MininS Association of British Columbia, without consulting the silver-lead miners' association have seen fit to pass resolutions  asking that a stipulated bonus, graded  from four dollars to ten dollars per ton be j  of the Kootenaya were subjected. His  line of argument bristled with points  which, however, were of a private nature. He made a strong plea for unity  and.organization among the silver-lead  miners, and his stand was unanimously  endorsed by all present.  It is the intention of the mine owners  to organize shortly. The plan laid down  is broad, businesslike in every respect  and practically means the salvation of  the Plocan. A committee composed of  W. S. Drewry, N. J. Cavanaugh and  Geo. Alexander were appointed tointer-  ! view the mining men, prepare a plan of  campaign and report at a later date,  A resolution was passed asking the  Provincial Mining Association to rescind  their late resolution and notify the  Minister of Finance in that respect.  The meeting then adjourned.  The following is the resolution sent to  the Provincial Mining Association:  - Whereas, we are of the opinion that  certain resolutions, regarding a bonus  oh lead (passed by the executive committee of the Provincial Mining Association, at a meeting held in Victoria, on  or about April 25th) were passed without a thorough knowledge or understanding of the subject in hand; and,  Whereas, we do not deem it proper,  in.view of the fact that our representative on said executive committee was  not present, that the executive of the  Provincial Mining  Association   should   "''fumuuci-..--;-���������..........,K    HCDuunuuit    tlliotlia  paid to the lead miners, under differing I have taken the initiative in matters  of  conditions, and provisos, and  (4) Whereas, the bonus suggested by  the said executive committee is wholly  inadequate, and their misguided action  has given the government, and the general publica wrong impression ofthe  real condition and needs of the lead  mining industry, and such bonus, if  granted, will not relieve the present  depression, or lead to the re-oponing of  the mines, and  (5) Whereas, the smelting and refining capacity of ihe Canadian smelters  is not sufficient to handle the normal  output of the lead ' mines, working to  full capacity, therefore be it  Resolved, that the lead miners of east  and west Kootenay districts of British  Columbia- in convention assembled,do  such vital importance.  Therefore,-be it resolued, that the  Provincial Mining Association be requested to withdraw their resolutions,  regarding the amounts to be paid by  the government as such bonus; and if  not incompatable with their views, they  endorse tho resolutions passed at this  meeting,.forwarding by wire, to the  Honorable Ministerof Finance, such endorsement.  Be it further resolved, that a copy of  the lesolutions passed at this meeting  be sent to the secretary of tho Provincial Mining Association with the request that he take immediate action.  The city fathers had a busy week,  holding three sessions to conclude what  business they had in hand to dispose of.  The first meeting convened Tuesday  afternoon with the following members1  present, Mayor Grimrnett and Aids.

To meet the  city's present obligations, a temporary  loan  by-law was introduced,   the   full  text   of which calls  for  a  temporary  loan of $2,600, bearing interest at   the  rate of ten per cent, per  annum,   from  the Canadian Bank   of  Commerce, on  the strenghth of  the  city's   incoming  revenue.

SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1903.  MR. KIRBY AND THE BONUS.  Edmund B. Kirby, general manager  of the War Eagle and Centre Star mines  at Rossland, has been very blatant on  the lead tariff agitation, and why many  would like know. That gentleman lias  little in common with the lead miner,  knows next to nothing about their conditions, and why he should set himself  up as an authority on the question,  which does not affect him in tlie least,  has caused many food for thought.  Mr. Kirby in a recent interview, stated "our brethren," the lead miners,  were making a serious mistake in trying to secure lead duties, and he thinks  the bonus would best serve the industry. Wonderful knowledge! What a  . mixture of ignorance and stupidity !  The lead miners as a whole are unanimous in expression against a bonus, as  no matter in what foim granted, the relief will be only temporary. The producers do not want to be benfitted at an  expense to the taxpayers of the country, which is practically what a bonus  means. The lead mining industry is  able to take care of itself if given justice  and tin- ia all that wasasked. No bonus  or half-hearted measure will do. The  miners should know what would remedy  their distress better than others operating on an entirely different line. The  lead producers, in ��������� convention assembled, unanimously declared themselves  in favor of a protective tariff as the only  possible condition to ensure a resumption of the now dormant industry. Their  aim was to secure stability; to enable  them to operate for an indefinite period,  not by fits and starts; to further develop their properties, and under conditions that would secure them a margin  of profit for the outlay of capital, to  which as investers they are entitled.  The only way apparent to them to ac-  1 compliah this was to petition the government to revise the tariff on lead and  its products to secure the home market.  This they did, but were not successful,  despite the unanimous appeal on their  behalf by the whole province, and now  believing half a loaf is better than none  the lead miners have accepted the inevitable for a time, will endeavor to  secure an adequate bonus and against  their own will,  Mr. Kirby aaya he regards all tariffs  to be relics of the dark ages. What  logic! It is admitted all over today that  the United Statea is the most progressive nation in the world, and what has  caused that young country to occupy  its high position in the commercial  world in so short a time ? Nothing but  its high,   scientific   and sliding   tariff.  Every industry in that land of progression is protected, ard well too, by ahigh  tariff wall. The native industries are  assured of the home markets at good  prices, and consequently can afford to  sell their surplus in foreign countries  ata lower rate.  And this is what Mr. Kirby calls the  "relics of the dark ages."   It  ia   a pity  that gentleman did not grace this mortal sphere at that period, and he would  save a whole lot of the humbugging he  is doing now.   Those   in   a position to  know have very little faith in  the sincerity of Mr. Kirby'a oft repeated  aiid  vague expressions of sympathy with the  lead miners, in tact there are many who  read between the lines and can clearly  see his hypocritical position behind the  veil.   In plain words Mr.  Kirby wants  the lead miners of  the   Slocan to ship  their ores .to the Trail smelter to use as  flux in smelting his low grade silicious  ores at no expense to himself.   The lead  miner at present foots the bill'of  smelter charges for the two,   and   with   the  Slocan output going across   the   border  for treatment would greatly  lessen   the  values of the properties of   which- Mr.  Kirby is the general  manager.   This is  that gentleman's position, and it is little wonder he assumes   the   attitude of  pretending  to  be   friendly to the lead  miners, when in reality ho knifed them  in the late tariff campaign, and   all for  GRIP CONVALESCENCE  There's nothing better  than Scott's Emulsion after  the grip. When the fever  is gone the body is left weak  and exhausted; the nervous  system is completely run  down and vitality is low.  Two , things to do: give  strength- to the whole body  and new force to the nerves.  Scott's Emulsion .will do it;  contains just what the worn-  out system needs.  , Rich blood, healthy flesh,  resistive force, more and better nourishment are what  Scott's Emulsion supplies to  the convalescent.  "We'll send you a sample free upon request. ���������  SCOTT & BOWNE. Toronto, Ont.  mutter. This being the caee the executive of the association overstepped  the mark. It is not believed the action  taken was calculated to do the lead industry any harm, but lat k' of foresight  misguided the executive to draw ud the  resolution as \\&������ supposed, to benefit  f 1  the miner, when in   reality  it was  exactly the reverse.  selfish motives, ln his interviews he  left himself open at many points, but  those alluded to are the most important.  If he wishes the lead miners to believe  he is sincere, he should come out in the  open and show his hand, and he will  find many in this section ready to meet  him.  In health just as does the city-man, and  he fails commonly from the same cause,  ������ stomach trouble." The farm is . a,  wholesome place to live;" the fanner's  life i9 a healthy life; but no external advantages can overcome the effects of a  diseased stomach. When the stomach  and its allied  organs of digestion and nutrition are diseased, the food  eaten is imperfectly digested  and assimilated,  and the consequent loss of  nurtition results  in physical debility.  Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical  Discovery cures  diseases of the  stomach and  other organs of  digestion and  nutrition, a n d  enables the per-  fect digestion  and assimilation  of food. It  builds up the  body with sound flesh and solid muscle.  ������I used ten bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery and several vials of his  ' Pleasant Pellets' a year ago this spring, and  have had uo trouble with Indigestion siuce,"  writes Mr. W. T. Thompson, of Townsend,  Broadwater Co., Montana. " Words fail to tell  how thankful I am for the relief, as I had suffered so much nnd -it seemed that the doctors  could do me no good. I got down in weight to  one hundred and twenty-five pounds, and was  not able to work at all. Now I weigh nearly-  one hundred aud sixty and can do a day's work  on the farm. I liave recommended your medi-  ciue to Heveral, and shall always have a good  word to say for Dr. Pierce aud his medicines."  The sole motive for substitution is to  permit the dealer to make the little more  profit paid by the sale of less meritorious medicines. He gains; you lose,  therefore accept no substitute for" Golden  Medical Discovery."  The lead miners are incensed and  justly so at theresolution passed by the  Provincial Mining Association at Victoria two weeks ago. It is theopinion ot  many that as the lead producers' advocate was absent, the resolution was  drawn up on information furnished I y  the representative of the smelting interest, present at the executive meeting.  From the way.theresolution wasdrafted  it certainly looks that way, the FmelteiB  to get |6 per ton and the producers only  $4. Trie lead miners have been holding  back since the government announced  its intention not to change the tariff,'  an account of waiting information from  their delegates at Ottawa. These gentlemen finding it was useless to expect  relief from tlie tariff standpoint after  the budget speech had been delivered,  turned their edorts to secure the bounty  promised, for the producers, and endeavored to persuade the government  to grant a sum sufficient to ensure the  resumption of the mines. With thiB  end in view the delegates petitioned the  Federal authorities to grant an adequate bonus of $15 per ton on lead in ore  mined in Canada, to go to the producer.  In this they were succeeding, when the  resolution of the Provincial Mining Association reached the Minister of Finance and upset everything. To say it  caused dismay among the lead miiierev  is to put it mildly. Their indignation  has b. en rightly expressed at the meet-  ings held the past week; It is evident  the mining association were the victims  of, jobbery by the smelter interests. The  lead men, the chief people interested,  wore   not  consulted in bo important a  From   indications  at   the coast it is  only a1 matter of a few weeks before the'  legislature is   dissolved   and an appeal  made to the country on party lines with  Col.

We want men   who   understand the conditions of the district, who  can express themselves on the issues of  the day ;��������� who will advance   the  interests   of  the country and  not cater to  clique, c ass or corporation.   We want  men who havo the courage   to  express  their  convictions;  who  when   in   the  House we know wheie  to  find   them;  who will work for the welfare of all, be  able to have in tiuenee with the assembly,  and be a credit to the  Silvery   Slocan.  We havo had incompetent representatives, who looked for nothing  but their  own   material   advancement, and  it is  time we had a change.   In looking over  the list of available candidates from the  Conservative standpoint, the best men  for   the  position are W. S. Drewry, of  New Denver, and Wm.  Hunter of Silverton.   Either of these two gentlemen  would fill the position with honor.   We  are not aware of the political ambition  of Mr. Hunter, but wo know Mr. Drewry  has been asked to run by   members  of  the New Denver miner!)' union and lias  given no definite reply.   Mr. Drewry ia  a man that commands the respect of all  and has the confidence of the miners on  account of his stiaightforviard manner  of dealing witli   tin in.   He   was   their  representative at the organization of the  Provincial Mfning Association  in Victoria  some   time  ago,  and frequently  the men have asked him to take the initiative and  represent thorn   at public  meetings and  such  like.   As a speaker  Mr. Drewry is forceful and to the point,  as a  debater   he   is  keen and hard to  beat.   Wewould   like  to  see him as a  candidate  and we are  confident if he  does so his chances of election are particularly bright.

The government has  ordered an investigation into the Columbia & Western land grant given by  ex-premier Dunsmuir, which is now  going on, and the House adjourned for  a week in consequence.

SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1903.  Mr. R. L. Borden, the   leader 'of  the  Conservative party, in what is admitted  by Liberals to have been one of the" finest speeches ever delivered on the Canadian budget, has laid down   a   broad  patriotic policy for the development of  this country.- He calls upon his   fellow  countrymen to forego the  mischievous  ���������   doctrines of an east and a west.-  -What  Canada wants iB an all-Canadian policy  with" provision1 for- the  country   as  a  whole.   The west needs transportation  and protection as well as tlie east. This  is only common justice, but it shews beneath the surface a  strong   desire   to  make a nation out of  the   Dominion.  That is what Mr. Borden aimstoaccom-  plish, and he has  called, for  a  tariff  which will meet the wishes of allclasses  and bring them to adesire to   see,   not  the development of any particular  sec  tion, but the growth of   what   will   be  truly national.   He speaks for a policy,  which, having regard for the interests of  the motherland and  the  empire,   Avill  first conserve Ihe   welfare  of   Canada.  Mr. Borden has taken a comprehensive  and statesmanlike view   of  our   conditions, and has made it plain that he is  not a leader for the east  or the   west,  but a Canadian in the fullest sense  of  the word.   Let us have less of the   narrow guage politics of the gentlemen  in  whose hands   the   government' of   the  country now lies and substitute to it an  era such as Mr= Borden proposes.  a common footing. Canada, if she!  would aspire to ever bepomini; a manufacturing country she must open up her  unlimited mineral resources, and tlie  only way to do bo is by a protective  tariff.  Times are prosperous in Eastern  Canada and bo are strikes. Almost  every industry has been hit and still  there are a number of strikes on. The  worst is that of the 'longshoremen at  Montreal, which has almost crippled  Atlantic commerce to that port, and the  militia have been called out to keep  order. The east is getting a taste of  what.the west had to endure the past  few years, and is beginning to suffer  accordingly.  c  Your Clothes  The Requisites of Mining.  In   drawing i&= comparison   between  Canada and the United States  in  relation to their trade expansion the  average Canadian   is   forcibly   Btruck witli  the magnitude of the American export  trade.   It is   so  conspicuous  that oft  times its realization brings   before  our  minde the great possibilities of our own  country.,     Today   the   United   States  -ia    the.   largest    exporting    country  in    the    world.        Whv     is     thia?  Simply because years  ago  the   public  men of that country realized the strong  necessity for a high  protective  policy  if they ever desired to see their republic  become an important factor in the mercantile and political sphere of influence.  By its inception they were sure of  securing the home market of consumption,  and   with   the   over-production  (which must follow with the great strides  that country is makihg)wou)d be placed  in foreign markets in competition  with  foreign countries.

The successful   management of a mine requires the same business qualifications as are   necessary   to  conduct   a  prosperous   manufacturing  enterprise or mercantile business.  .Tlio  field is a most attractive one.   As a rule  panics do not effect   mining, except   in  the  arbitrary   destruction   of   money  metal, as wae the case in  silver.     The  tariff only slightly   affects  tlie  steady,  increasing profits of mining.   Political  parties may come and go,   but  science  and improved machinery constantly reduces the cost of production, and mining goes on.     High   salaried  salesmen  are not needed, for the demand is practi-  ca.ly unlimited and the product  is  at  once marketable.     With   proper  care  and judgement in the placing of investments, nothing that is offered the public is more worthy  the attention   than  properly   managed, legitimate   mining  enterprises.

Frank Griffith is now engaged in sacking at the Westmouth, on Ten, Mile,  and expects Bhortly to have a car of  high grade ore ready for shipment. The  ore carries considerable grey u copper  and will probably run in theneighbor-  hood. of 175o unces of 6ilver to the ton.  H. B.

A small, though significant strike of  ore was struck on the Rainy Day mineral claim Thursday, while assfssment  work was being carried on. The find  was made just west of the Donnely  along the K. & S.

Robt. McTaggart  and John Black are the owners.  ^y We have received a copy of a booklet  on "Sport and .Scenery in Southern British Columbia," published by the Tourist Association of Kootenay. .
