The next question  to be considered is that of transportation. The properties are located some  IS or 20 miles from Slocan lake and  about 23 miles by the present trail,  which was improperly constructed.  The, government should send in an  engineer to straighten out the trail so  that its length could be cut down three  or four miles. Since his return to Ross-  land Mr. Martin has had an assay made  from the ore taken from the shaft, and  it went something over 673 to the ton  in silver and lead. Messrs. Libby.  Lawry, Brewster and a number of  others- own properties along"Wilson  creek, and Mr. Martin tells the Miner  that he believes Wilson creek is certain  to become a large and important-mining  district, but it must have transportation  facilities before it will assume its proper  status.

Frank  Collom bonded the Speculator group on  Springer for 855,000, paying- 5 per cent,  down Another payment of 5 per cent  will be made in six months, and the  bond paid in full in one year.

Smitheringale and A. Tanks. The  Speculator has been held by Messrs.  Kirk wood and Tunks since 1S94.  Victoria, Aug. 25���[Special to The  Ledoe.]���In the supplementary estimates which were .submitted to the  House on Thursday evening-, an additional appropriation is made to the  Slocan constituency. The sum of 3000  is set apart for the completion of a road  from Ainsworth to the Highland district. As regards roads, trails and  bridges, Rossland riding alone receives  anything' like a large proportion.almost  510,000 being' set apart for that constituency. This was doubtless due to the  strong representations made by Mr.  Curtis when the estimates proper were  brought down.  WILSON'   CK.I2KK    PKOIVKKTMCS.  Hon.

This  was  sunk  on  the pay shoot.    The ledge is four and a  half feet wide,  and   the  pay  shoot, of  olid  galena,   runs from 10 to .14 inches  KlltK   AT    IVASHOE.  Sandon.

The fire,  which is supposed to have originated in  the drying room, broke out at 12:20  o'clock, and in a very few moments the  camp buildings were completely destroyed. To-day the company is shipping up tents' and lumber to make  temporary shelter for the force engaged  at the mine. About 25 men are on the  payroll.    There will be no lay-off.

This  railway will  consist of a short line from Grand Forks  to a point on the international boundary  hear  Cascade,   where   it will  connect  with another railroad which is projected  northward from Republic to the Bound  ary.    With these two roads in operation  it is claimed that  the  ores  of  the last  named camp would he  brought  to  the  Granby smelter at Grand Forks, as the  ores of   the   Boundary   and   Republic  readily (lux.    At the back of  the, company  seeking  incorporation  is Hon. J.  R.  Stratton,   Provincial   Secretary   of  Ontario, who, with the remainder of the  syndicate, is ready to put up an  extraordinarily large guarantee, and  to promise that the, road will be in  operation  within   twelve   months.    Residents   of  Boundary too  are unanimous that the!  road should be built, and it  is  claimed  that  its  construction   would   augment  the population of Grand Forks by  5,000  people almost immediately.

There is suflicient! notice. But before the second reading  ore on hand to keep the works busy for j wag reachofl a formidable opposition to  the   bill   developed  from   the  C. P. R.  Company.    The Incorporation claimed  priority in the  field  under the  branch  ine   franchise   of   their  own   charter.  George McL. Brown,  executive officer  of the road, immediately  set  in  operation all the lobbying' forces at   the disposal of that railway, and. to such   good  effect that shortly  before,  midnight on  Thursday, when many of the  sponsors  of the Grand Forks charter were absent,  the. bill was rushed into its second reading and   was  defeated.    At   that   very  moment   Ralph   Smith,   Smith   Curtis,  lobert Green   and several ardentsup-  Hirters of that bill were enjoying a chop  in the restaurant, and  no  division  hell  being-   rung,   they   lost the opportunity  ��->   of   voting".     Considerable   indig-nat.ion i  is expressed at this surreptitious way  i of   disposing  of  the  measure   and   the  from occupants I  Chief    Commissioner    of   Lands    and  Works, contemplates a refund of 25 per  cent, to holder of pre-emptions who are  in   arrears.    The  grievances of  these  settlers and the proper  method  for  re  dress have been long" standing subjects  in the Department of Lands and Works.  It is with a view to dispose of thematter  finally and to get at least  a  portion  of  the monev due to the Provincial Treasury that, the Government take this step.  The measure is of  course  open  to  the  objection that it  gives   the  delinquent  pre-e'mptcr an advantage over the man  who meets his  obligation.    This  point  was very clearly set out by   the  leader  of the Opposition who   held  that  those  who had aiready paid their dues  had a  perfectly proper claim for a refund.   His  colleague,   Mr. Brown,   disagreed   with  this  view and  was at   one   with   the  Finance Minister  in  holding'  that  the  Government   v,as   merely   adopting  a  system common   in  commercial  circles  to  get   in   outstanding-   accounts.    Ail  the  farmer members  warmly   complimented the Government on this highly  necessary step.  One of the most satisfactory incidents  of the session has been the action of the  Government in taking over as a public  measure Mr. Helmcken's bill excluding  Mongolians   from   employment  in  the  construction   of   railroads,    highways,  ferries    and     other    works    securing  charters from this or subsequent legislatures.    The Opposition made a strong-  effort to make the, provisions of the bill  retroactive and also to make  it  applicable to the  operation  of  these  works.  This   the.   Government   stubbornly  refused to concede, though  it   is  sure  to  come at  subsequent  sessions.    Among  the   ultra   opponents   of   this  class  of  labor, even this concession  of  relief is  regarded with the greatest satisfaction.  Prorogation will probably be reached  on   Tuesday,   when  the   Premier  will  take, the members of the House  for  an  excursion to his mines at Extension and.  Coinox.    It was intended  to  have  this  holiday before the House rose,   hut  the  up-country members insisted that public  business   should   have,   precedence   of  private pleasures,   and  doubtless their  views will prevail.

Boost  The Loca  Mines  In another  column will be. found  a., letter  from   AV.  A. Coplen, Slocan  Commissioner    at  the, Spokane Exposition, suggesting  that the citizens of this section   get  a. move on, and soliciting our active  co-operation in his efforts to get up  a creditable mineral   exhibit  from  the  Silvery   Slocan.    Mr.   Coplen  says there  is  no  reason   why  the  Slocan should not cany oft* some of  the medals, if not  the  first  prize,  offered by the Exposition for a. display of minerals.    And he is right  i n his deductions.    The only reason  that possibly can prevent it will be  found in our  own   carelessness  in  not sending from this favored mineral belt as good a display  as  can  be got together.    There is no deny-,  ing the fact, we are too  indifferent  as to the importance of keeping the  Slocan in the front ranks as a mineral   producer,   and   too lax in our  efforts to  sustain   the   reputation  already gained by the district as a  good field  for   investors.    We  depend too much upon our past reputation., forgetting that other camps  are springing into  existence  daily  that are not to  be  compared   with  the Slocan. yet.   by   persistent  advertising, are brought to the front  and made to supercede this district  in the minds of the investing public.    Spokane  is   not  a Paris, but  the Exposition is the most  important that  is  annually  held  in  the  inland north-west, and it  will   not  do to allow the opportunity  to  go  by without some effort being ma.de  on our part to assist Commissioner  Coplen in presenting our resources  to the thousands of pleasure seekers  that will visit the Exposition.  Mr. Coplen "s recommendation  that we should make an effort to  properly bring before the Exposition the importance of New Denver  as a pleasure resort and residential  centre; is also worthy of earnest  consideration and active eo-opera-  tion. We daily look upon the  grandeur of our scenery, and our  beautiful    sun-shiny    weather,    as  ���)laeed in the estimates and in due  :.;ime will bo placed in the Bank of  Montreal here to be expended <m  the building of the much needed  road. When the fact became known  several energetic citizens of Silver-  . peculators who are not themselves  competent in such matters to judge  a- property by the men . associated  with it. The time has arrived in  British Columbia, when no person  of any standing can afford to allow  ton hastily signed   a   petition   and; his name to appear on any   minin  forwarded it to Victoria, requesting  that the road be built into Silver-  ton. As this route, for the road  would be longer and with a steeper'  grade, costing more money than  from New Denver, the wisdom of  the petitioners is placed in doubt,  while the  reckless  waste  of then-  board of directors except  the  prt  perty be exactly as.represented."  PASSKNOKRS    SENT    BY    W1IJ..K  The first suspension railway- for  ���the conveyance of passengers ever  built has recently been constructed  at Barmen. Germany. It is a  energy brings some admiration j little over eight miles in length,  from those who delight in forlorn and has eighteen stations,  hopes. Silverton people, or some The road commences at Barmen-  of them, are fond of jokes,especially Rittershausen and follows the River  if they cast  a  shadow  across  the  Kupper through the thickly  popu-  sun of prosperity that shines on  their sister town. They should not  do this. Instead of wasting time  in attempting to roughlock the  wheels of progress in the Lucerne  they should use all their efforts to  have the Government build roads  from the Molly Gibson and Slocan  Star into their town. There might  be some sense in this, as it would  bring trade from distant parts, but  to oppose the building of a road  from New Denver up Silver Mountain seems about as useless a task  as trying to drill a tunnel in granite  with a. lead pencil.  The Government might do better  lated cities of Barmen-ElberfekL  Beyond Elberfeld the line extends  toward the west as far as Voli-  wlnkel, leaving the river at Sonn-  born. and running over the public  highway to Vohwinkel.  The iron framework over the  river is supported by buttress piers  of iron inclined toward each other:  but in the public highways the  structure is supported by vertical  iron columns, which require no  more space than lantern posts.   ;  The-cars are suspended on trucks  twenty-six feet in length. Each  truck has two axles. Between each  an electro-motor of thirtv-six horse  charge bein^ deducted from ;t rich  ore as a poor ore, for' ex'-i tuple, a o0  I per cent, tire compared with a 25 per  cent, ore, and consequently his profit  i ought to be twice as great This  raises a rather complicated question  which it is difficult to answer categorically. Our corre pendent is in  error, however, in assuming that the  cost of smelting a ton of joor ore is  the same as for a ton of rich ore.  Assuming that, the  ore.   is   blende,  the luwer it is in grade, the less is the  oss of weight   in   roasting,   and   the  greater the bulk of the  ore   because  (if the higher   percentage  of gangue  of' low specific gravity.   Consequently  :,he lower the grade of  the .ore,' the  ess ol   it  can   be   put  in   the  same j  volume ol retorts, and the greater the!  cost of smelting, even if the .percent, j  age of iron and   other  injurious   im- |  puri.ies have, .not increased  with   the  decrease in the zinc tenor of the   ore., j  Moreover, the percentage of zinc   re-i  covered will go down   also   with   the j  i grade of the ore.    The increased cast !  "fiss   have   to   be   covered   by   a ;  higher smelting charge.  Although    the    smelting    chargt  comes.out -of the miner, it is a mistake! w^W  Jo consider the smelter as   iridepcnd- j ^-C  cut of the minor, their interests being   /\��m  j allied   in   obtaining   the   maximum  j profit on the zinc contained in the ore  won from the ground by   the. miner,  though they may be keen competitors  as to the division ol that profit.    It is,  therefore, contrary to the interests of  both that, fuel   and   labor- should   be  wasted on worthless gangue, and the  question should resolve itself into  a  balance of costs  and  losses:  that  is,  whether'.the greater loss ot  mineral  in making a high-grade concentrate  is offset by the sa\ ing in freight and  smelting, or vice  versa    The company which operates both mines and  smelting   works   has   to settle that  question, and although the independent smelter is nof confronted directly  by it, we fancy that in the long run  WL-JW **c_ jW W: _>*  w r*****^  S  L.

It contains analyses  of loti eamples of powders bought of  dealers and manufacturers in the nonunion, S5 per cent, of which are found  to be alum mixtures In view of the  large, proportion of this class of powders, Chief Analyst Maci'arbine recommends that legal proceedings be taken  against parties selling them, on the,  ground that they are. -tmhealthfui  articles of food, and believes that their  sale will be condemned Iiy  the   Courts.  The analyses were made by the  Assistant Analyst. Mr. A. McCill. who  fully discusses the injurious nature of  alum in -baking powder^ Mr. McCill  adds: "In my last report .1 expressed  my conviction, based im experimental  evidence, that alum in baking powders  is dangerous to health The large  mass of evidence since, accumulated  has more strongly convinced me of tin*  correctness of that opinion. My personal  opinion is decidedly against the use of  alum. The health of a nation is too  serious n matter to be.imperilled lightly.  and if it be impossible to secure prohibitory legislation, it is desirable flint  manufacturers of alum rowders should  be required to state the contents on the  packages."  Professor Rattan, of McGili College.  Montreal, who made a series of experiments   on   the   digestibility   of   bread  baked with alum powders, is quoted as  follows: "The unanimous verdict of my  experiments is that alum powders in  troduce into a form of food of universal  use, agents which are. detrimental to  the functional activity of the digestive,  ferments They must therefore, be pre-  judical to health, and the only course is  to carefully avoid them."

Foley, jr., in Bismarck Tribune  CAUSES OF Tins   OHINIS.SK TltOUKLK. i  An article of  profound  interest-  indeed, the most complete and satisfactory account yet published of the  1 'Causes of Anti-Foreign Feeling in.  China"���is contributed to'the August  number ot the  North  American  Review by Dr. George B. Smyth, presi-  denuif'the Ariglo-Chirieee college at  Foochow.    The present disturbances  he attributes to the resentment felt  by the people on account of recent  appropriations.of territory by  European nations and the fear of th�� natives  that they portend the seizure of the  entire empire.   But the circumstances  which are responsible  for the deep-  seated hatred of the "foreign devils"  are varied, some being related to the  conduct of Europeans toward China  in the past, and some arising out ot  influences that are  at work   to-day.  Dr. Smyth's article should be read by  every one who  is interested   in  the  pre -ent Chinese situation.    From the  bitterness   of  the  prejudice  against  the  missionaries,   Dr. Smyth  draws  the following conclusion:  "Two  lessons,   at   least,   may  be  learned from this,   namely,   the tremendous   responsibility   which    our  missionary societies incur in sending  missionaries to China, and the solemn  obligation under which such  responsibility puts them to send to that distant,   difficult   and  dangerous  field  only  the  choicest men  and women  they'can-find.    There is no service  for wlich the selection of candidates  should be so carefully  made.    The  ordinary qualifications are not sufficient.    Zeal alone will  not do.    Besides   the  passion  for  humanity,  of  which  every missionary should  be  possessed, he should have in addition  the great virtues of intellectual sympathy,   the   power   of   appreciating  another's position, the ability  to see  the truth   where  it exists,   the tact  which    is   unfailing.      With    such  qualities as  these,   the  missionaries  may hope in time  to  overcome prejudice, make their position clear, and  win   an   acceptance   for   the   great  message which they preach.    In that  message, only is China's salvation, for  in it alone are the promise and the  power to effect the moral regeneration  which is her supreme need."  others.���.Sentinel of Liberty. | and it is hopeless work to  guess  about  Fear  not   the.  evolution   hypothesis, i'another.    lie. reels  and  goes  on,   torn  Steady yourselves in its presence,  upon j with the pain, but   never  surrendering  ultimate  triumph   of   '  that faith in tin  truth which was, expressed by Cauinliel  u'lieu he said: "If it be. of Cod, ye cannot overthrow it ; if it be of man, it will  come to naught.''

Hobson  We have taught the young for a.  hundred years that making' the most  frightful noise is the way to express joy.  How long will it take us to teach the  health fulness of quiet ? How soon shall  we learn that one has no more right to  throw noises than they have to throw  stones into a house? Every physician  knows the baleful effect of noise upon  his patients, and every physiologist  understands its pathogenic effect upon  the nervous system. Above all things  unnecessary noises at nig'ht should be  mercilessly stopped. If all the physicians and medical societies of a city  should use their influence upon the city  governors, the greater part of such  could be eliminated.���Medical Journal.

A new and important, industry will  probably be opened up for British  Columbia,with her immense, sea bonier*  in the near future. The l?nitetl States  Fish Commission has been making a  collection of leather made, from the  skins of lislt and aquatic animals, especially of those which promise to be of  practically utility. They have discovered that there are several varieties  of lish whose skins make excellent,  leather. Salmon hide, for example,  serves so well in this way that the  Esquitnos make waterproof shirts and  even boots out of it They also cut  jackets out of codfish skins, which are  .said tifiijfl.'. very serviceable irannents,  lasting'for years. There arc, tribes of  Indians who make breastplates out of  garfish skins, which will turn a knife  or spear���tough e.nomrh for anything.

Some time ago a well-to-do /Mexican  wrote for several ready-made suits to  a  New  Orleans merchant,   and,   to  insure a good  fit,  sent this description:  "I am 42 years old,   weigh  120  pounds,    dark   complexion,    notary  public."    Another worthy subject of  President   Diaz   sent   an   order   for  rather a curious outfit, which he said  was intended for his brother.    It consisted of a black suit, with one white  shirt, black tie,   collar,   cuffs and a  pair   of   patent-leather shoes.     The  day  following its receipt a telegram  arrived,saying:  "Do not send things.  Brother is getting better."   It turned  out afterward that the.- brother  had  been seriously ill and  the  garments  were intended to array   him  for  the i  tomb.
