Garde,  Hughes and Harris at tlio instance of an  informal meeting held Wednesday last,  to attend a conference on the lead industry. About 40 mining men from all  the Kootenay8 put in an appearance  and the following names and mines will  give a fair idea of prominence' attached  to this conference.  Geo.

Trueman sent two enlarged  photographs,18 x 24 inches, of scenery  of this district to Newcastle-on-Tyne,  and four different views of the same size  to London, England, last Monday. This  is not the first order he has sent to the  Old Country, but it is not often that two  orders are received in one day. If patronage from afar account anything for  work, that of R. IT. Trueman's speaks  for itself.  account of his recent European tour,  and was attentively listened to by the  congregation. He spoke from tha standpoint of ReligiousMonuments in Europe  and briefly described the many churches  visited. He feelingly related the audience with the Pope which was attended  by several hundred pilgrims as well and  lasted over an hour. While in Rome he  was a guestof the Canadian College in  that city and paid a visit to the Cata-  co tubes.  Another phase was added to the Cube  Lode litigation on Wedesday, when suit  was commenced by A. O. and F. L. Fry,  who claim to he owners of the ground in  dispute under the name of that mineral  claim. The suit is entered against Geo.  Clark, who re-staked-the property last  summer and named it the Wild Rose.  This is the second suit entered against  Clark since he staked the property, Ihe  first being enteied hy John Docksteader  who claim to have slaked the same  ground and called it the Colonial mineral claim. The suit is now more muddled than ever and seems to be further  from a satisfactory foIution that at any  period in its troubled history.  about next Friday, Nov. 28th, nnd will  probably remain in "town a few days.

The Engineering and Mining Journal  of the 15th referring to the continued  drop in silver .'���������ays: "Silver reached  this week the lowest price on 'record,  selling at a fraction under 50 cents an  ounce in New York. The decline has  been so gradual for several months past  that this extreme low point has excited  very little attention or comment. The  causes of the decline have been referred  to from time to time. They are still in  operation, and it is not impossible that  the low record of 50 cents may be passed  during the next few months." I-  THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, November  22,  1902.  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY,   NOVEMBER  22, 1902.  A MISLE UMNG STATEMENT.  The following extraction from the  Vancouver Province under the caption  of "The Mining Country" has this to  say regarding the Slocan country,viz;  "In the silver-lead country the activity during the past season was unprecedented, and the discoveries of immense deposits of zinc have added incalculable value to that country."  In giving vent to the foregoing prolixity the Province is either suffering  from a delusion or it does not know  what it ia talking about. The statement are both misleading as the Slocan  was during the past year, and isstill the  reverse to what the Province represents  it. If the Province had said the country  was in a retrogressive state it would  have been nearer the'truth. Again in  the same article the Province further  states that discoveries of immense deposit^ of zinc ore are being made. This  ia just as equally misleading as the  other. As a matter of.fact the zinc deposits have been known to exist from  the first epoch of development in the  country and very little is being done at j  the present time beyond making ex-:  peri mental tests.  The Province will do well iii future to  becomemore posted on the Slocan before publishing such verbesiiy.  SORE,NECK  Take Scott's Emulsion for  scrofula. Children often have  sores on the neck that won't  heal up. The sores may come  and go. Parents . may not  know what's the matter nor  what to do. Scrofula is ���������the  trouble and Scott's Emulsion  is the  medicine.  Scott's Emulsion heals the  sores.- But that is not all.  Scrofula leads to consumption.  This is the real danger.  Scott's Emulsion is the  "ounce of prevention" that  keeps off consumption.  "We'll send you a little to try, if you like.

The effect on the Slocan will be felt cf  course,butnotto such an extent as camps  depending entirely upon this metal, and  willbethemeansof causing a great many  silver.mines' to close. The Slocan'shopes  are centered mainly on the lead market,  and if it could realize say $3.50 to" $4.00  per hundred no uneasiness would be felt  over ihe rise and fall of that uncertain  metal.  Montreal is in luck. The C. P. R. is  building six large workshops in that  city and will shortly call for tenders on  the seventh, which,when completed will  give employment to several thousands  of men. Now the Canadian Locomotive  and Eneine Co. of Kingston, are going  to move their extensive plant to the  Canadian metropolis, and have already  purchased a site and concluded arrangement for removal at an early date. Labor troubles are the cause of the step  taken by the. locomotive people. The  company assert that onaccountofBtrikes  and other disturbances they were compelled to shut down a great part of the  time, and as a consequence they were  falling behind in contracts and the  works were unremuncratiyc. The company has been recently reorganised and  claim that Montreal offers them much  better conditions than the Limestone  City and haye resolved to move the entire works to the former city.  Silver took a drop this week to 49  cents with a tendency to go still  lower, and has reached the lowest notch  in.the present decade. The cause for  its declinemay have one ormorereasoiiH  and can be only left to conjecture. It  may bo cause by demonetizingsilver for  a gold standard in certain countries or  Of. the child is an event in the mother's  life. How proud she feels when the  attempt to walk is begun so early as to  evidence childish courage and sturdy  strength. Such pride should be enjoyed  by every mother. But it often happens  that the child is timid,  weak and deficient iu  vitality, and clings to the  mother's arms with uo  desire to walk or play.  Mothers should learn  that to have strong children they must themselves be strong, for the.  child's 'strength is  the gift of the .  mother. ������Q>  The use of Dr.  Pierce's Favorite  Prescription by,  expectant mothers  gives them health  and strength to  give their children. It nourishes the nerves,  strengthens the body arid gives great  muscular strength and elasticity, so that  the baby's advent is practically painless.  "I have been using Dr. Pierce's Vavoriie Prescription, and can say it is just what you advertise it to he, and can cheerfully recommend it,"  writes Mrs. Victor J. Iladin, of I.eonardville,  Riley Co., Kansas, "I began taking it just two  months before baby came and was greatly benefited bv its use. The doctor who attended me  B;ud I did about.ns well as any one he had seen  (as I was sick only about three hours), and also  that your ' Favorite Prescription ' was ' tlie out  patent medicine' which he did have faith in.  '< We now have a darling baby boy, strong and  healthy, who weighed mite pounds when born  (July 28th). During this month he has gained  three and one-half pounds."  "Favorite Prescription" makes weak  ���������women strong, sick women well. Accept  no substitute for the medicine which  works wonders for weak women.

Because the Rossland Miner said in a  recent issue that the mines could not  afford to pay the two per cent tax, it is  jumped on with both feet by the Kootenay Mail and charged with insulting the  mining industry of the province. If to  speak the truth is an insult, tho Miner  is at fault; but'situated'as it is with the  mines at it very doors, it ought to know  what, it. talks about, whereas with its  accuser there, is not a mine within miles  of its office of publication. If the Mail  editor would take a trip through the Slocan he would get his eyes open to the  truth, and find plenty of food for  thought if not for refutation. He would  soon be convinced, that with silver.at  the lowest price recorded, lead not much  better, and the. mines hampered with  many other restrictions, that the two  per cmt tax is a burden and many properties , are closed down. Had those  zealots who were instrumental in passing tlie measure, imposed the tax 011  profits instead of output, thoy would  have gone a step in the right direction,  but at that time they could not see any  further than their own nose, although  they see their blunder now, and we will, j^^   AflePt   wQQstg p%0B^fifl������������^  not be surprised to see the tax repealed j   ^^      The Great SfSfcSS?

''Have ye heard of the tirrible fate  that overtook Israle Tarte?" asked Mr.  Dooley.  "It is the main guy of the Liberal  parthy that ye mane?" enquired Mr.  Hiniiessey.  "Worse then that," said Dooley.  "They caught him rid-handed thrying  to earn his salary, and they prisinted  him with his walking ticket. It all  came about this way. Tlie form an on  the job is Sir Wilfy Larryer, Knight of  this and of that, and dimmiciat up to  the hilt. When Sir Wilfy waH plain  misther, loike you and me, Hinnessey,  toimes were hard with him. He was  eighteen years out of wurruk. All he  could do was to throw- stones at the  gang that was hired to look afther the  Parleyment Buildings at Ottawa.  "In these days Israel Tarte was the  only friud Wilfy had, for he took pity  on him and told him how to get the jobi  'Throw mud that will stick,' says Tarte,  'and ye'll soon have the other gang dismissed.' 'Come and show me where to  get it,' sayB Larryer. So they made a  date between themselves. And shure  enough, soon after that the ownerof fhe  primises suit for Larryer, and says to  him, says he, '1 want ye to be foreman  of the job.'  "Thin Larryer says to all theworruld,  'I owe this to my friud rael Tarte..  Hereafter me motto shall be: There's  nothing to good for Tarte. Have first  choice me bye, of any job in the gang.

Thin he takes Tarte aside and says   to  him :   'Kape things agoing,' Israle,  me  bye, till I come   back.

Sometimes the fchreasury would get too  full, and thin Israel would have  to  in-  vint new public wurruks.He searched  all over the country  for sites'for break-  wathers,   caynals,   wharves,   railways,  post offices and what  not.     Ivrybody  wanted Misther Tarte ivrywhere. Tarte  clubs were formed  in ivry   city,   town  and village. He opened all the counthry  fairs.   He laid all the  corner   sthones.  Babies were   named   afther   him,  and  were transported miles to be kissed   be  him.   Photygrafts of Tarte were raffled  off at church   bazaars.     Soloons  were  named afther him,   and all   the other  cabinit ministhers   were  clane  forgot.  Most people thought he was   the whole  show.   Tho rist of the cabinit   held   a  caucus and declared that  they   would  niver be annybody so long as   MiBtlier  Tarte remained in the administhration.  Outside of their own families they were  absolutely unknown to   the  counthry.  So they resolved that   be  crook or  be  hook Tarte must go."  the other chaps talk free thrade, ye'll  keep the ship on an even kale.'

The Chinaman, who was busy counting collars, not wishing to be disturbed,  replied,"Go long, countee collar."  "What's that?" said Pat.  The Chinaman again replied, in an  angry voice, "Go long, go along, countee  collar."

It was in connection with an adjoining claim that  the Sproule murder case arose, for which  crime ttie murderer Sproule was hanged  in this city years ago. The disagreement between Sproule and another prospector arose through a question of prior  location, and after months of quarreling, one morning Sproule shot his enemy while he was on his way to work  on the Blue Bell claim.

Unsatisfactory, Manufacturers to  Help Mine Owners to Secure  Revision of Tariff.  (From the Montreal S'ar.)  The meetings between the representative of the lead mines of the West and  the manufacturers of tins city, which  have been going on here'for-the past  couple of weeks, are now drawing to n  close, and it is announced to the Stai i  today that as a result there was a mark  ed disposition among themanufaetuien-  to consider the situation fairly as it affects the western producers, smelters  and refiners. The latter will in consequence be assisted by the manufacturers in the application that will bo made  to the government to increase the present tariff.  '   Lead Consumers' Views.  In discussing the results of the meetings with a Star representative, Mr. Jas.  R. Wilson, vice-president and general  , manager of the Thotnaa,Robertson & Co.  Ltd., the lai'gestrcoriBurners of lead in  Canada; stated that any manufacturer  who himself asks for protection to enable liim to reap the benefit of the consumption of his own market could noi  be consistent in refusing the application  of the western men.  "The tariff,'' he said, "is not perfect.  The government has  never said it was,  but still it is likely that alterations' can  only be effected   by the   manufacturers  ��������� interesting themselves  and   advancing  their claims as a unit.  ���������   "Then   thers   is   the question of the  quality   of  the   lead   produced   in the  country.   There cannot be  the slightest  doubt but that the quality is highly satisfactory   in   every   respect,  and while  there are no corroding works in Canada  the lead has been tested  for   that  purpose and found to be equal to  the best.  "With the one exception to the condition of the present  tariff, I would say  that   there  is   not any reason why the  corroding of pig lead should not become  an active industry in   Canada, in order  that all the white lead used, amounting  to about 9,000 tons per annum,  (should  be manufactured  in   our own country  from our own product.   The foreign article would be kept out, and the additional, duty   required   to   effect such a  change would be very.little, and  the result   to   the  consumer   almost   imperceptible. :-  '   United States Tariff.  "The American tariff is the most  scientific tariff in the world. It has been  provided to meet the requirements of  the varied indutries of a great people,  and while with our lower, consuming  power, as compared with theirs, their  tariff might not be found practical in  this country, still it worth careful study.  We might at all events find out the ratio  which one article should bear towards  another in the payment of duties, and  in this way the markets of Canada would  be safeguarded and retained for the  Canadians.  The Facts Ascertained.  "Among the leading and most important facts brought out at the various  meetings were the following:  "At the   present  time  about 25,000  We illustrate here  our No. 600  "SOLITAIRE"  DIAMOND  RING,  . which sells for  $100.���������  This stone Is of the finest quality,  and is mounted in 181c. gold.

Our new illustrated catalogue will  be forwarded on request.  We cheerfully refund the purchase  price where any article' selected  is not perfectly satisfactory.  Ryrie Bros.,  Jewelers,   -  Yonge and Adelaide Streets,  Toronto.  tons of pig lead per annum are smelted  and refined in Canada, the product of  ores mined in British Columbia.  "Under the present tariff, the refiners  are only able to market in Canpda about  one-fifth of their product, the balance  being exported principally to Japan and  China, the price realised there being obtained in competition with the London  market, which is the lowest in the  world.  "For some time past the price has been  so low that it was clearly shown that  the price netted from the ores mined is  unremunerativp, and has resulted in the  closing down of many properties.  The chief cause of this is that at the  present time about 8,000 or 9,000 tons of  dry white lead is imported into Canada  at an 'ad valorem' duty of 5 per cent.,  which of course, is reduced cne-third  coming from England. This dry white  lead is ground in oil. and distributed in  the form of paint,the duty on which is  25 per cent. If the duty on dry white  lead wnsincreaped "sufficiently to stimulate the corroding of lead in Canada, the  miners, smelters and refiners would thus  (secure an additional market for their  product to the extent of 9,000 tons."  In reviewing the facts broughtoutan-  other leading 'manufacturer stated that  as large investments had been made in  developing the industry in the West,  reasonable protection should be afforded  them by securing for them their own  market to the full extent of their raw  product.

Death of G. R. Maxwell.  George Maxwell, member in the Dominion house of Burrard Inlet, died  early Tuesday morning. He had been  ill for the past two years with cancer of  the liver, and on Saturday it was known  that his death was only a matter of a  few days.  George Ritchie Maxwell was born at  Stonehouse, youth Lanarkshire, Scotland, 011 January 11, 1S57. He was educated at the parish school and Glasgow  University. lie took a theological  course and wasordained in the Presbyterian ministry in 1SS.0 and migrated to  Canada and 1S!)L located in Vancouver,  following his pastoral vocation until his  election to the Dominion Houseof Commons in the general election in June,  1S9G, as a Liberal, and from which time  he has hold the seat until his death.  Two more furnaces are to be added to  the Gran by smelter at Grand Forks,  making six in all and giving the smelter  a capacity of 2,200 tons daily.  There is a scarcity of skilled labor in  the boundary country on account of  many men leaving the district during  the summer when work was slack.  The Cork mine near Kaslo will shortly commence to ship nnd from present  indications the property will prove a  bonanza some 1,200 feet of crosscutl.ing  ia being done and water power being  developed preparatory to the building  of an electric plant.  Application will be made at .the next  session of parliamen t for an act.to incorporate as a Dominion railway the Nicola  Kamloops & Similkameen Coal & Railway Co., and to construct and operate  an extension of the line from Nicola  valley along the Nicola river, to connect  at or near Hope, and thence to Chilli-  wack, with power to construct a bridge  over the Fraser river.  %uck TQeals.  ������������-innnwnr "*,ir--*���������,?Tiii'������rfiir������������'i i���������.lmuuthSiit\m   m hi mm     w*m  Of delightfully appetizing danti-  ness are not difficult of procurement or .preparation, only two  things are necessary to ensure  success.
