There are two va'-ancies in the  city council and the positions can be  for the asking.  W. B, Strathearn, manager for   Chew  - Bros, was in the city Monday and states  the building of their saw millsat Slocan  City is practically an assured fact.  A number of Sandonit/Ja. took in the  K.

If such  he the case Sandon will be heard of in  hockey circles the coming season.  It is expected that the question of duties on zinc will be finally settled on  Monday next, when the fate of the Slocan will be known. Meanwhile the ore  shipped from here is held up at North-  port by the custom ollicials.  Harry Nash returned from his bunting trip around Slocan Junction on  Tuesday, but. without any big game.  He cays that deer are plentiful in that,  neighborhood; but the inclementweath-  erand heavy snow fall made pursuit  impossible.  The McMillan  Fur & Wool Co. have  placed  their circular of Nov. 1st on file  in their rooms at Nelson on the 24th  inst. The object of the meeting is to  receive expressions and consult with  W. A.

During liis sojourn  here he   made himself   very   popular  with the congregation, and  they regret  his departure from their midst.

As the trail is not in a proper condition  at the present time, it will probably be  a week or ten daj-s yet before they commence to do so.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  ' The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon for the week:  Mine. Tons.  American Boy  21  Payne  20  Ivanhoe  20  Soho  21  Total    82  Mrs. Dr. Hendryx, who has been hero  for several mouths, left'for her home in  California on Thursday. She was accompanied by Mrs. Scott part of the  way, who is on a visit to friends.  C. P, Soalo is back to town from the  Sinilkamcen, where ho Ikih been working since spring. IJo has great faith in  the coal fields of that district, especially  Ashnola,and brought back' with him  some fine samples from the workin;.'3..  The coal mines at Michel near Fernie,  are closed down and employees living in  the company's cottages have been triven  notice to quit. It is asserted 100 men  arc expected from the east shortly when  the mines will start up again. This  would indicate that the trouble is not  over in that district.  Monday night the citizens of Sandon  were somewhat surprised to see coming  into town a lengthy K.&S. freight train���������  the really first one of any length for many  months on the Kaslo and Slocan railway. For a while it had the effect  of giving a great many an early day  bouyant feeling, but this was just as  suddenly dispelled when on investigation it proved to be only an emergency  freight.  was established a quarter of a century  f'ago^andon account of their extensive  business, they are in a position to pay  high prices.

The Ladies Aid Society of the Presbyterian church met on Wednesday at the '  home of Mrs. Atherton and elected the  following officers for the ensuing six  months. President', Mrs. Robb; lstvice-  presJdent, Mrs. Atherton; 2nd vice-  president, Mrs. Crawford; secretary,  Mrs. Vallance; treasurer, Mrs. Fallows.  The Kamloops Sentinel has tho following to say of Prof. Zamlocli, the  magician, who performed in the opera  house last night and will appear there  again this evening: "It, is rare that a  really good performance comes to Kani-  loop, but Zamlocli, the magician, has  pioved a welcome exception to tlie rule.  Misses M.'and A. McKinnon, and although taken by surprise, the reverend  gentleman made a feeling reply and  thanked the donors for their kind remembrance, which he said was quite  unexpected and undeserved.  Bonds California Property.  Mark Manlcy, one of the first mining  men to penetrate the Slocan   has made  a nice cleanup in Trinity County,   Cali-  fonia.   About a year ago lie sold out liis  Slocan interests and since that timo he  had been looking over gold property in  the northern  part of  California,   .He  finally took a bond  on  the   Enterprise  group last  September, and has just returned from the east where he has been  successful in transfering his bond  to   a  company whereby   he  realizes  in   the  neighborhood of $100,000   on the   transaction!  Two Feet of Ore Struck.  Lead Miners on Tariff.  At an informal meeting of mine operators held at 7.30 p. m. on Wednesday,  last in the office of E. M.Sandilands to  discuss tho lead question, the following  resolution was passed:  Thatin view of the fact that the   invitation to the Board of Trade  meeting  to be held   at   Nelson, which   has just  been read, is a general one to all directly 3r indirectly interested   in   the   lead  industry, therefore he it. resolved:  "That it is the sense of this  meeting  The exhibition of legerdeman given by t that the interest of the lead miners will  him in the K. M.-.& A. A, hall hist night: be best, conserved by a direct expression  was of a high order of merit, equal to  anything in tlie same line to be seen at  any time in the large cities of the world.  He is neat and clean in his work and is  a clever exponent of tho magic art. The  attendance was very good, but if merit  counts for anything there should be a  crowded house tonight, when a complete  change of programme will be given."  of opinion, it, is advisable that a nice  ing of all those engaged in or, directly  interested in load mining, be called at  at Sandon on Thursday, the 20th inst.,  at-7.iiO p in, nnd that Messrs, Harris,  ���������Hughes and Garde be and are hereby  appointed a committee to issue invitations to such persons as are directly  interested."  Some few weeks ago J. R. Cameron  took a bond and lease1 on thc Reliance  mineral claim about one mile and a half  below the city on the C. P. R.. right-away,'and just opposite the Payne ore  house, since which he hits been quietly  having it worked. This week he was  rewarded by running into a two foot  body of quartz and ore of an average  value.  The quartz carries both gold and silver values and the exact percentage of  each it carries will not be known until  assay returns are received. About,forty  feet of tunnelling was done on (heproperty previous to Mr. Cameron acquirrng  it, giving evidence of a strong lead.  An independent smelter company is  heiim organized in New Mexico with a  capitalization of .*5,000,0000. This company has the exclusive control of tbe  rights and patents of Charles A. Weasels which process, it is said, will treat  lead ore at $2 less per ton than any-  present process operating and copper  ore for fl less per ton. One of the first  smelters to be erected will be at Aberdeen,New Mexico. THE MINING RKVIEW���������Saturday, -November  15, 1902.  Mug Review.  SATURDAY,   NOVEMBER 15, 1902.  We reproduce the following extract  from one of Israel Tarte's recent  speeches in Eastern Canada:  "Canada tried to negotiate a tariff but  our neighbors would not be friendly. We  are closing up an epoch of apathy,   and  indifference, and before   long   we   may  bring you to time   by   putting  up   our  fence. That, I think, would have a good  result.     We   are   not   aa   big as you,  '    but   you   cannot  swallow   us   in   one  mouthful.   National pride is  running  high in Canada, and   we are  going  to  protect ourselves, and in   so   doing  we  will bring you to time. We have a country  full of natural resources.   We have iron,  gold, lumber and magnificent fisheries.  You want our iron and gold and lumber,  don't you?   You are joint owners   with  us in the great waterways, but  we   are  solo owners of the St. Lawrence route.  Our waterway from Chicago  to  Liverpool is 500   miles   shorter  than   your  route, and I   think  you  will   use  our  waterway  when   it  is   completed,   al-  thopgh I don't care whether you  do or  not.   There is a strong  national   sentiment on tliia i-ubject."  This statement shows a very patrotic  spirit on  the part  of  Mr.  Tarte  and  should meet with the hearty endorsation  of all true and loyal   Canadians.     Any  overtures on the part of UnitedStates for  a reciprocal treaty should he rejected as  they have all to gain and Canada would  not derive any-real benefits  from such  a treaty.   It would permit our country  to be developed at our expense to build  up our neighboring country.   There was  a time when this would have proved   a  general blessing to the  Dominion  but  that time has long since passed.,    Ab it  is now,,the United States has so organized its industrial system to compete in  all countries foreign to itself and could  well afford at the present time to have  our tariff fence removed; it would then  completely undermine our infantine industrial system and we would be  then  ,' at their   mercy.      Just  so   long    as  we would be able to compete in an open  market, just so long would we be able  to withstand their onslaught.   Our own  industries should   be  hatched  by  the  same process that those of the other side  have undergone and is still  being  carried out, and when we have become  as  financially strong, we would then be in  a position to lower   the  fence.     Then>  what Canada mostly desires  ia m  high  protective tariff wall to keep  out  their  marketable products and encourage our  own people by protection, or otherwise,  so that Canadians may enjoy what benefits might  accrue from   home  manufacture.  EASY TO FIND  When you find a medicine  that makes your regular food  taste good, when you find a  medicine that strengthens a  weak stomach���������then you know  you're going to put some flesh  on.

Sir  Wilfrid in turn did not fall in with the  Colonial Secretary's imperial defence  scheme, and the support Canada should  give in the cost of its maintainance,  wisely declaring he would not drag hip  country into the maelstrom of militarism without first appealing ���������to the people. Practically nothing was accomplished at the conference beyond filling  in time and the delegates returned to  their different countries in the same  manner as they left.  The colonial conference from which  so much was expected to strengthen the  trade interests between Great Britain  and her colonies, has apparently ended  in a fiasco. Sir Wilfrid Laurier asked  the British Colonial Secretary for a preference of Canadian goods in the British  market over that of foreign countries,  in return for the perference given goods  from Britain in Canada over that of  other nations, and also that the duties  recently imposed on produce going into  England should be rescinded aB far as  Canada was concerned, and thusenable  her to compete with the world in the  British market. This Mr. Chamberlain  could not see his way clear to grant,  much as he would   like to see the colon-  Politics at home and abroad. The  breach in the Dominion cabinet has  been mended by the appointment of  Raymond Prefontain, M.P.,of Montreal,  as Minister of Marine and Fisheries,  and Hon. Jas. Sutherland, to the Department of Public Works. The usual  crop of protests in Ontario are being  aired in the courts and will decide the  fate of the government of that province.  DunBmuir is still premier of B. C. despite all reports to the contrary, and  there are still two yacancies to be filled  in our city council.  NOTICE.

The jury returned a verdict of accidental death on the man who fell from  the window ledge on which he had fallen  asleep.   But the death -was really due to  ____j__r possible.  ^^  l7���������j[~ZirT There are a  F^CQCZIC^ ������reat man7  '   '   u    ;��������������������������������� lives sud-  ip~~       denly terminated   as a  result of  carelessness,  although the  medical certificate may  read   " heart  failure."  When a man  takes  chances with  his stomach  and neglects  the warning symptoms of disease, ne is  carelessly inviting calamity.  Dr.'Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery  cures diseases of the stomach and other  organs of digestion and nutrition. It  enables the perfect digestion and assimilation of food, which makes strength.  It stimulates the liver, cures biliousness,  and removes bilious impurities from the  blood.  "I had been troubled with a pain in lower  part of my stomach for three years, so severe I  thought it would kill me iu time," writes Mr.  Aaron Van Dam, of (Kensington) 1549 uotli St.,  Chicago, III. "I could hardly work; it felt like  a big weight hanging on me and got so bad that  I had to take medicine. I used Stomnch Bitters  for a time, but it did no good so I wrote to Dr.  R. V. Pierce for advice, which lie gave me immediately. I followed his directions; used two  bottles of his medicine and was cured. I had a  torpid liver which was troubling ineinstead of  cramps (as I thought), so Dr. Pierce told me.  I have pleasure in living now; have gained in  weight 15 pounds since then."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure constipation. They do not beget the pill  habit.  According to the Kootenay Mail John  Houston is likely to contest the new  constituency of Ymir in the next provincial election. John is wise. Even  phould he receive the nomination in his  present riding he is sure of defeat at the  polls. John's power is on the wane and  his star of destiny has set so far as the  city of Nelson is concerned. He can be  very expressive in larguage at times,  and always has a bouquet or a brick  ready for use as the case may be. He  lets one or the other fly and sometimes  both. It's just a way he has, but it  don't take nowadays.  Certificates of Improvements.  NOTICE.

Now, say the silver-lead!  miners of Kootenay, give us another  cent per pound duly, or even three-  quarters of a cent, and we will fairly  make things huin in lead production.  They make out a reasonable case, and  in view of the important character of  the industry and the peculiarconditioi 8  which confront it, might not a bonush:  the best method of rendering silver-lead  mining assistance? We are menaced  with lead not only from ftiexice but  from Germany, aid the cape of the  Kootenay miners is an exceptional one.  ���������Monetary Times.  The  Silvar-Lead Industry.  A fair oportunity seems to present  itself for consideration by the government of the present condition of the  lead producing industry of British Columbia. The mine owners of the Slocan  district of Kootenay are producing ores  which yield silver and lead, in varying  proportions. With prices at the level  of a few years ago it was possible for  them to make a profit on their output.  But so low is the present price of eilver,  and so low the figure they can obtain  for their lead, that it is impossible for  them to stand against the imported pig  lead from the States or England. Accordingly we find within the last few-  weeks that tin important mine, the  Whitewater, near Kaslo, has been shut,  down and 120 hands are thereby out of  work. Another mine in thesitine neighborhood is reported as likely to close,  and in fact the silver-lead industry of  Kootenay is in a despondent stato for  want of a profitable market into which  to send their lead. The United States  tariff against Canadian or other foreign  lead ore is 1 1-2 cents per pound, eo that  at present low prices of lead the world  over, British Columbia lead cannot lie  sold to that country at a profit. And if  attempted to be sold in Eastern Canada,  with 2,000 miles of freight added, it is  met at Halifax or Montreal by pig lead  from England on which the importduty  is, owing to a preferential tariff, but  one cent per   pound,  making   the   im-  Loehinvar Up-to-Date.  When young Loch invar rode out from  the west,  He claimed that his automobile was  the best;  Tt was painted dark red and it brilliantly shone,  He went li'ke a streak and he rode all  ��������� alone;  He shot over ruts with a zipp and a jar,  And people fled madly from young  Lochinvar.  With a whirr of his wheels   and   a hum  of his cogs  He knocked down the children  and ran  oyer dogs;   ���������  He frightened the horses   and   laughed  at their pranks,  And men who got angry he looked on as  cranks;  He gave her the very last notch   on the  bar.  And a cloud of   dust  followed   the gay  .Lochinvar.  He stayed not at'  bridges,   he  stopped  not for stone,  He calmly took all   of   the roads as his  own,  Till he came (o a crossing and smashed  throuuh a gate i  And endeavored to butt through a train  load of freight���������  They searched, and at last, lying under  a car,  They found a few chunks   of   the   hold  Lochinvai.

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, November 15, 190a.  One of the World's Largest Ore Bodies  The possession of large quantities  of  , the economic minerals is  one !of   the  chief sources of a country's wealth  and  prosperity.   Canada is fortunately beyond other countries in  that  she  possesses in addition to large bodies of coal  and iron, a natural monopoly of nickel,  asbestos and corundum.     We  are  all  mc e or less familar with   the  former  minerals, bnt the importance of the last  may be less readily  appreciated,  as  it  has never heretofore been found in large  quantities.    The   development  of ithe  corundum   deposits   of   Eenfrew    and  Hastings by  the  Canadian   Corundum  company, however, has resulted in  the  Canada as the world's future  source of  supply for brasive material.   It is generally known among manufacturers and  workers in metals that the ideal abrasive, next to the diamond, is pure corundum, which, according to Dana's   6cale  is next to   tbe  diamond   in   hardness.  Corundum is pure crystalized alumina,  just as the diamond is  crystalized  carbon.   It will reduce to povrdsr all substances save that gem.  The ancient Greeks and Romans in  their search for the mineral to use in  their manufactures and arts, discovered  the impure variety of it known as emery.  Emery contains about 30 per cent, of  corundum intimately mixed with iron  rust, a substance that lessens the value  of the mineral as an abrasive lor it does  not cut, or adrade, while it heats the  article to be ground or polished. The  emery deposits are found in the Island of  Naxos, In the (Jrreecian Archipelago,  and in Asia Minor, inland, whence it is  transported on camel's backs to the seaboard. Many of the emery mines that  are worked today were known to tbe  anciant Greeks.  Pnre corundum has never been found  save in the gem varieties of ruby and  sapphire, the former in India and Bur-  mah and tbe latter in' Ceylon, and  occasionally in China, until 1870, when  it wa9 discovered in the mountainous  regions of North Carolina and Georgia.  The superiority of corundum over emery  is so great that many attempts were  made to obtain a supply of corundum  from these southern deposits. They  proved, however, to be mere pockets,  and the quality of corundum obtain*d  from them was so variable that no dependence could be placed upon it; what  iittlo was obtained met with a ready  sale at high prices.,  In 1897, when the discovery of the deposits of corundum in Ontario was made  public, but little interest was displayed  in the announcement. It waB regarded  as an established fact that corundum  did not occur anywhere in the v. orld in  sufficient quantities to ever become a  factor in the abrasive market. These  doBits, however, have proven to be inexhaustible, Craig Mine Mountain alone  having in sight more than Bufficientcor-  unduni to supply the world's markets  for many years to come. This deposit  contains the corundum now being worked by the Canada Corundum coinpanj\  The hill or mountain which is over a  mile long, wherever explored or examined, is found to be studded with  crystals of corundum. The crystals vary  in size from that of a lead pencil to  masses weighing twenty pounds. It is  difficult to estimate the extent of this  deposit, because of its enormous bulk.  The estimate contained in   the govern  ment report puts the amout of mercantile corundum in sight at several millions  of tons. Coin paring the hill tb; sl plum  pudding, stuffed with corundum instead  of fruit/the location of the miriihg'pper-  ations may be likened to a modestslice.  Although the world's' market for'the  harder abrasives isjiow fifty "thousand  tons yearly, arid the great increase in  the use of iron and'steel mean's a corresponding in the increase' of corundum,  there is ho fear'.of the'' failure" of" this  source of supply.' '.' ' ''    '  In 1899 Mi\ A. C. Craig, who had already obtained possession of the "Craig  mine, organized the Canada Corundum  compauy, which entered into an agreement with the Canadian government by  which it was granted the exclusive right  to make the first choice of the remaining deposits.    Next spring  operations  were,commenced, and, althongh it   had  no experience of other people to  guide  them in treating the rock', the company  has successfully solved the many   problems that arose, and has now in operation a mill that turns out Craig Mine  crystal corundum, running from  95   to  98 per cent, pure, which is 20 per cent,  to 40 per cent, purer than any   abrasive  hithei to producedincomercial quantities  Progressive   manufacturers have   been  quick to realize that this article  is certain to become the standard abraeive of  the world, and now that ifc is produced  in quantity, it is only the unprogressive  that will continue to use emery.     It is  U6ed   by   manufacturers    of   grinding  wheels in Canada exclusively   and   has  been adopted by almostevery prominent  emery   wheel    manufacturer    in    the  United States.   It is  also   being  used  extensively in England and   Germany.  Back From New York.  Uncle Si.���������I've beam the New York  Zoo is great.  Uncle Jo.���������Wal, I guess!

"In common with other mining men,  Mr. Hickey would like to see a reduction of the duty on mining supplies, fuse  powder, caps, oteel rails, etc."  lufck 'Real  s  P. J. Hickey, manager of the Ivanhoe  mine, while out at the coast in an interview with  the  Vancouver   World  reporter stated he could not see how   an  import duty on lead would benefit  the  Slocan silver-lead mines.   "It is not advocated by a single   silver-lead   mining  man in the province.'   The  total consumption of lead in Canada is only between thii teen and   fourteen thousand  tons and it is hardly   likelyo that  the  British Columbia smelters would  give  the Slocan mines the   benefit   for  that'  amount by a better rate. ' The smelters  would be the gainers by a duty, not tho  mines.   What is wanted is competitive  smelling and freight rates and   import  tariff would destroy these.  ('The silver-lead mines of Sandon will  never be in  a   really .prosperous   condition until their products can go directly to the open market.   Just now they  go through several intermediaries.   Before the establishment   of  smelters   in  this province  we   received   New   York  prices for our lead imthnmediately local  smelters were operated   London quotations ruled.   The loss is apparent when  the quotations are compared.    At New  York   the price received  was $4.12 1-2  por  hundred, the figure maintained by  the,Smelting Trust; the London rate is  $2.30.   Obviously the silver-lead mines  were better off when there product   was  marketed across the line."  The world further states; "Mr.  Hickey would like to see satisfactory  arrangements entered into with the  Smelting Trust which does not buy Sandon ores. By that means 40,000 tons  could by disposed of annually. ' Mr.  Hickey also mentioned that Mr. Van  Qsdel, whose company is about to operate a silver-lead refinery at-Spokane,  told him that under existing freight  conditions they could treat his   product  ���������General'News,;  The shipment of gold from Dawson  this year is estimated at $11,000,000..  The British Columbia government  have floated a loan of $3,500,000 in London to tide over the present financial  difficulties.  The Nelson Board of Trade have called a special meeting for Nov. 24th, to  discuss the load mining industry and  the revision of tlie tariff.  The Bank of Montreal's semi-annual  report shows the net earnings of the  bank for the Hix months ending October  2Lst to be $SG9. 822.85.  Word comb from Montreal that the  Crows Nest Coal company have decided  to-carry out their reorganizing plan  which will involve the issue of $2,000,000  of bonds to be u<;eil to further develop  their proper!ien.  The Dominion cabinet have decided  the law must take its course in the case  of Rose who was condemned to death  for the murder of Cole at Nakusp last  summer. He is sentenced to be hanged  at Nelson on November 21st.  The French coal miners' strike has  collapsed. They agreed to submit their  grievances to arbitration but rejected  their firidiiisrs and so lost the sympathy  of tlie people. The attempt to organize  a general strike lias (ailed and the men  are again returning to work.  Roland B. Molineaux of New ' York  was set at liberty on Mwnday after  spending four years in prison for the  murder of Mrs. K. J. Adams.

Consolidation in the Coeue d' Alenes.  ���������0Mmmm  It is admitted in New York   that another step in the consolidation   of  the  lead industry iB about to betaken which  will involve a consolidation of the lead  mines in  the  Coeur d'Alene   district.  It is understood that the Guggenheims  of the American Smelting   &   Refining  company, who are now in the west on a  trip of   inspection   of   the  company's  plants, have  such   a  consolidation   in  view, aiid are sounding the  owners  of  properties on the scheme. There is now  a well-balanced community of interest  arrangement between the lead producers,  which   results  in   several  conferences  each vear with the officials of,the Smelt-  ing trust in regard to output and prices.  The product of the producers  is  almost exclusively handled by the American   Smelting  &   Refining   company,  which mills the ore,   turning out  the  lead, silver, gold and copper.    It is believed that better results could be  obtained if an   actual  ownership   of   the  mines existed tnan under the   present  conditions where eharp competition oc-  ' cassionally develops.  In case their is a combination of the  rich Couer d'Alene properties, the  smelting interests would undoubtedly  be the dominant factors. It would require millions in cash even should an  exchange of smelting stock for the mines  be determined upon. The product is  undoubtedly under consideration, but it  is thought to be a long way off at the  present.  When it does take place, as some authorities atate it will, the American  Smelting & Refining company will then  occupy a position almost identical to  the United Steel Corporation in the  steel and iron business. This will be  seen when it is remembered that plana  have been practically completed for a  mammoth merger of all the lead manufacturers, including the sheet, shot,  pipe, and white lead corroders. In this  combination the SmeltingTrustinterests  and those of the Standard Oil are the  dominent factors.  Ryrie Bros.,  Jewelers,  Yonge and Adelaide Streets,  Toronto.  M. L. GRIMMETT, I,L.
