State, and extends across into south
eastern Kansas. The, bulk of the mining- has been done up to the present
time in a comparatively small area,
probably 15 to 5C miles in length from
east; to west, and 20 to 25 miles in
width. In, this district the towns, of
Joplin. Aurora and Granby,in Missouri,
and Galena, in Kansas, are the centres
of the milling' industry. In tin's 'com-!
paratively small area are found the
greatest, zinc blende deposits known to
exist in the world. While both zinc
blende and galena are found, the production of blende is far in excess of that
of g'alena.
"The distribution of blende is not
uniform over this whole area, but deposits of some value may be reasonably
expected at any point. From the
nature of the deposits, as will be shown,
the distribution is necessarily very uneven.
"Rocks belonging to the lower carboniferous series form the bulk of the
area under consideration; limestone,
cherts, shales and sandstones are all
represented, but limestones are by far
the most abundant. And it is in the
limestones that the ore deposits are
found The cherts are important only
because the ore is almost invariably
found in connection with them. The
shales are important as a source of
natural gas for use in the smelting' industry.
"The country is a great undulating
prairie with no marked eminences.
The strata are nearly horizontal,having
only a slight dip toward the west. The
ore occurs in great bodies of irregular
shape, g-enerally lenticular masses,
sometimes as pipes and ag'ain as sheets.
The width and thickness vary widely
within distances of a few meters. Previous to the discovery of minerals of
value, in 1ST0-TJ, it was an excellent
farming" country, being well suited for
raising' fruit and grains.
"The deposits almost invariably occur in irregular masses of chert. The
chert is in form of angular fragments
with' zinc blende and g'alena in the
spaces between the fragments, and
crystalized on their faces. In some
places the amount of chert is so small
that the deposits assume the form of a
solid mass of ore In other places the
chert is packed in such a manner as to
leave very small spaces for the ores.
At times stringers of ore are found extending  out   into  limestone,   which  is

complain that their necessities and  importance, have  not  been   broug'ht: pro
minently   before   the attention  of  the
house and the.Government  this  week.
The   consideration    of    the    estimates
furnished a pretext for the member  for
Rossland to emphasize what he  termed
the neglect of the  milling" districts  in
general and of West Kootenay  in  particular.    He had  fortified his   position
by an   exhaustive  examination  of the
public accounts and.from these he made
the deduction that   the interior  of the
province was discriminated ag-ainst  in
the   matter   of expenditure on roads,
trails   and   bridges.     Taking-   up   the
riding's of the province one by  one,  he
pointed   out   that  the expenditure on
island   and   lower   mainland constituencies  amounted  in  almost every instance to two-thirds that derived from
these   same, districts  in   revenue.   In
comparison with this liberal  treatment
he drew attention  to the very small
appropriations   made   for   the   mining-
riding's, notwithstanding" the enormous
sum which they furnished yearly to the
provincial    exchequer.      So   far    the
member for Rossland was fully supported   by   the   representatives   of   other
mining'   constituencies,   but   when   he
undertook   to   say   that  the Rossland
camp   had  accomplished  more  in  the
way   of   advertising   the   mineral   resources of the  country than  all  other
districts   combined   he  was met  with
interruptions of dissent from those who
to that time  had approved  his  representations.   Needless to say Mr. Green
did not1 allow these statements  to g-o
■unchallenged.    Following Mr. Curtis in
a brief speech he insisted that  the  riding" of Nelson primarily and afterwards
of the Slocan had arrested the attention
ol" investors before the .Rossland  camp
became  known.    In   this  he  was  supported by Mayor  Houston,  of Nelson,
although  both gentlemen  assented to
the general   argument    advanced   by
their colleague from Rossland.
The Minister of Finance, while regretting that large)- appropriations had
not been possible for all the districts,
disputed the contention that Rossland
had not had its due. The large sums
expended for railways for that district
and the 830,000 item for a new court
house for the Gold City lie considered a
suflicient argument: to dispute Mr.Curtis'
Mr. Green, the  member  for Slocan,
has been the recipient of numerous congratulations upon the liberal sum which
lie   has  secured   for   his district.    The
fact th-tt he and Mr    Ellision,   who  are
ainong-st   the   least    frequently    heard
statesmen   of   the   house,   managed   to!
secure   the   premier   appropriations,   is;
not without its lesson to those members!

the legislature. .
Tlie suppliiiientary estimates will
almost certainly contain a sum for the
erection of the now Government House. '
The general satisfaction with the appropriations and the personal popularitv
of Sir Henri Joly combine to disarm
opposition to this proposal, and some of
the interior members have expressed
their hearty approval of it.
Another measure which met with '
general approval was the bill presented
by the Minister of Mines to relieve the
miners in the British Columbia contingent in South Africa from assessment
duties and similar obligations under the "
Mineral Act. On the suggestion of Mr.
Helmcken, the Minister promised to go
even farther and to entertain favorably
a proposal to issue ci own grants to these
volunteers free of charge or fees.
A despatch from Victoria to the Nelson Tribune says:—J. Roderick Robert
son and the federal board of trade
delegates are here doing everything
possible to have the eight-hour law
agitation reopened. To-day petitions
signed by the companies included in
the mine owners' association were presented in the House praying that a
commission be appointed to inquire
into the working of all the laws now in
force relatingto mining. The members
from the mining districts are free in
denouncing this attempt to keep alive a
question that is practically dead.
A petition was read in the house on
Monday, signed by the. mine owners of
West Kootenay, reciting the fact that
by Dominion Commissioner Clute's report at least S30,000,00u was invested in
West Kootenay mines, and the petitioners pointed out that recent legislation
had interfered with the successful working of the mines, and had been responsible for disturbing the harmony between capital and labor, as well as
proving in general detrimental to the
mining interests. The petitioners.
asked that under the circumstances a
special investigation should be made
by a committee to remove all grievances and place the mining laws in a
satisfactory condition. The petition
was objected to by Joseph Martin, but
the speaker ruled it in order and it was
An amendment to the license law
provides that pack trains of six or more
animals shall pay a license of So cverv
six months, and under six animals half
that amount.
A bill was brought in on Monday to
amend the Mineral Act. it provides a
penalty of .?25 for mining- without a
licenae, provides for issuing- crown

road, the cry is heard that the road
should be built by day labor. It
is impossible to state at this time
what position the government will
take on the question'as to how the
road shall be built, but it is probable the question will be left open
as was that of the road to Three
Forks, and the matter left entirely
the one thing needful to surmount
the .disappointing obstacles that
obstruct the way of life, and  make
ambition had no part. He was a

duty it is to pay out the money
granted by the government. If
such is to be the case, then New
Denver should have a voice as to
how the money7 is to be expended,
and there should be no quibbling
a.bout it. if the road is to be built
by day labor, as was the Three
Forks road and the Lemon creek
road, then a good trail should be
built instead. There should be no
more "day labor." business in connection with the building of these
roads, unless they are built under
the direct supervision of the government. The Three Forks road
is an example of how thousands of
dollars can be wasted under the
'"'day labor" system, whereas a
road that could be used permanently might have been made for
the same money under the contract
system. The road.up Si 1 vcr Moun-
tain should be one that can be used.
Cheap work will not do. Whoever
does the building of tlie road should
be bound by contract, and the government should sec that the contract is lived up to in every detail.
Three thousand dollars may lie
.sufficient for the purpose, and it
may not. - Hut if a, good road cannot be built for this amount, then
let the sum be increased a thousand
or so before the work begins. Let
the people know before the work
starts what kind of ;t road they are
going to get for the money and.
then, see that they get it.
Human selfishness -is found in
every quarter of-rhe globe—in the
mining camps of P.C the prairie
homes, the city homes, in business.
social and religious life, it was
never better illustrated than in the
following story of a- little boy :
Some rich plum pudding of which
the children were very fond was
upon the iuncb table.and the mother
divided it- between Willie and his
sister Klsio. Willie looked ar his
piece with hungry eyes and thenar
his mother's empty plate. ".Mti-in-
in.'i." s.'iid lie h'l-lingly. ""I eau'l
enjoy my pudding when you haven't

Work   gives new  life  and
It is well that it is  so
contentment.     Therefore
against worry as you would a contagious disease. It wears upon
the brain as dropping water wears
away a stone. Ada C. Sweet, in
Woman's Home Companion, says
the habit must be killed by eternal
vigilance, resolution and good
sense. Worry, like bad air or an
obnoxious person, must be driven
out, and the best way to drive
either out is by the introduction of
the good. You can fill your mind
with comforting, calming thoughts,
leaving no room for the harrassing
ones. You can flood out the enemy,
just as by pouring a stream of clear
water into a tumbler filled with
discolored liquid you can soon force
out the muddy contents of the
glass and leave it filled with liquid
crystal. Don't let events depress
.you. Maintain your equilibrium,
and let mind rule matter and good
sense judge events. The emotional
nature   is  always   watching   for aj
children being placed with different
families. Collis made his home
with the family of Orza Earbier.
Mrs. Earbier was an unusually intelligent woman, and to her training, as Mr. Huntington in tne days
of his success always admitted, was
due the fire of ambition which was
early kindled in his breast.

when all the rest of the crowd, fellows of your own age and social
class are being the jolliest kind of
bad; seeing it all: looking at the
"seamy side." just to see how the
world is made; whooping it up with
rollicking choruses, watching things
mix themselves aright and helping

embrace such lines as these—Ladies' Shirt

I, <K©L ,|      J*BL        VI IMP , Seventh Year.  THE LEDUE, NEW DENVER, B.C., AUGUST 23   1900.  A NARROW  ESCAPE.  Enrqwp��r M��n Carae Near Going ta  Heaven by the Dynamite Route.  "Talking about narrow escapes," said  Campbell Hardy, who has experienced the  nps and downs of 12 years of newspaper  lli��, to a Galveston News man, "reminds  me of an experience I underwent while  running a little country newspaper up in  Illinois, chasing the festive advertisement  and the elusive news item. My office and  plant, where I molded public opinion and  told a limited number of subscribers what  to do In order to be saved, was located in  a harness shop. One bright spring morning, while engaged in writing an editorial  I was interrupted in my intellectual reverie  by the sound of scurrying feet below, and  the next instant by a terrific explosion,  which shook the building.  "All was a blank for the next minute,  when I found myself lying up against a  broken sash. Gathering myself together,  after wondering whether it was the falling  of a brick wall or the kick of an energotio  mule that had struck me. I surveyed the  ruins. There was a hole in the floor beside  me and ono in the roof abuvo, through  which you could have driven a government ox team, and a 'pied' and wrecked  newspuper ollice. It appears that the occupant below had sprung the combination of his safe, and, being desirous of recovering the princely sum of $1.70, along  with some valuable papers, had in a moment of temporary insanity engaged a  party to blow open tlie safo door with  dynamite. The safo was placed on its back,  charged with the explosive and the fuse  touched off.  "The  bright,   intellectual   engineer  of  the job  neglected   to   notify me when the  services  began, and   the  results   wero  as  above stated.    It was a miracle that 1 was  not blown   to  pieces, but, as  luck would  have it, 1 was just outside of the dead line,  for had I met the safe in its upward flight  the chances are my friends would   be still  looking   for    my  remains  with   a  rake  Though I was somewhat bruised and dis  figured, I am   pleased   to   note  that   1 re  mained in   the ring.    Gentlemen, 1   have  been  jumbled  up in a railroad  accident,  mingled with the tail of a Dakota bli/./.-in!.  been wrbeked at sea and storm tossed   ..i i  this was my narrowest escape from s,n.,.en  death that 1 have to chronicle     It w;;.- de  oidedly a case of   being blown up. biirimi  out.

"Timothy,'' suggested a major-  general, who is a vestry-man in an  Episcopal church.  "Nonsense," answered a Senator.  "Timothy was a disciple of Paul's.  He wasn't one of the twelve apostles.'

East African and Uganda  Mail, by a fellow passenger.  The train had come from Mombasa  to Kima. Here Mr. Ryall was told  there was a lion within "200 yards, and  lie, therefore-, detached Ids corridor  carriage, walked up tlie train to another compartment, in which were Mr.  Heubner, Mr. Parenti, and the narrator  of tlie story, and suggested a search for  the beast.  The three men joined Ryall, but the  hunt was unsuccessful. As, however,  the station-master told them two lions  prowled about the station every night.  Parenti, Heubner and Ryall decided to  remain on watch in the detached carriage, which was shunted on to a siding  About midnight Parenti went to sleep  on the floor, while fleubiier occupied a  bed above, and Myall sat on his seat  and kept first watch.  At .1 ::-�����-> Parenti woke with a start  and found a lion treading on him. He  saw the beast's fore, paws on Ryall's  body, and heard Ryall utter a cry. He  tried to reach his gun, but failed, and  then he managed to crawl through a  window. He ran for the station-master, and on returning they found Heubner in tho'kitchen at tlie back of the  carriage  "Ryall! Ryall !" they called.but there  was no answer. Then the station-master and his men went back with burning brands to the. carriage.  They found it drenched wdth blood,  but empty.    Ryall could not be seen.  Day dawned, and outside they   found  more, blood and many   footmarks,   both  of a lion and a lion's cubs.  Ryall they never found  HOW    TO     IliaXK     MILK.  "Malay, eh.

Well, let the eastern-  ���".rs have them, suggests the Industrial  World. We have more than we want  of the slant-eyed devils and can spare a  few. It is proposed to ship a few of  them east. The World will give a few  dollars to the scheme. Dump a few  thousand of them in Toronto, fill Montreal with them, turn ten thousand of  them loose in the. timber regions of  North Ontario, ready and willing to  work for S1.0 a month; man the railways  with them, shut out the xvhites in every  avenue of industry or compel them to  work for and subsist on Chinese wages.
