Aricady five  carloads of ore have been snipped, trom  this property, and in a few days a  shipment of two more carloads will be  made.    The Rambler is  being" developed   by  means of two tunnels.  .    From the first of which the bulk-of  the ore already  shipped   has" been  v taken.    The vein varies from  ten. to  v twenty  inches,- in  a  ledge of some  right feet  in  width,   the  ore   from  which gives ret! r . o over 20_ounces  to the ton of silver.  Nodistrict in tlie United States can  show more development,  than Trail  creek. It is estimated r.har.machhierv  to the value of $1,000,000 has been  installed in the district during the  pa t Year, and orders are in for  a  large quantity more.    The production  of ore in the development ci the mines  has been  enormous, but much of it i.-  of a  grade  which will not admit of  shipment; but in   almost  all  cases^  where  machinery has been brouuht  'into requisition, great headway has  fbeen made, and the ore  has iin pro v  'ed as development  has progressed.  An tUd  I)udge.  The November output of Cripple  Creek was the largest in the history  ot the camp.' Thh> speaks well for  the district, considering that, some of  the largest mines have not produced  their usual amounts. It is still claimed that the years output will very  nearly if not quite reach $10,00J,0UU.

A Spokane paper has the fallowing  to say about Kootenay :��� -  "The Kootenay papers are now  making, estimates of the output of the  district for the coming year. Last  vear the estimate was $10,OJO,<AX).  This, has fallen to less than $5,000,000.  However, at that time they were  justified in making the estimate as ir.  was thought the enormous amount of  development being done, and still  further development in contemplation  wuuld swell the number of producing  mines. The development has gone  on without intermission, but it has  been found that more work will be  required to make producing mines  than was anticipated.  T h e cond i tions ha ve changed some-  what, A nuin ber of properties have  been or will '.soon be on a producing  basis, and in the coming year Koote  nay will pour out a large amouut of  treasure.

Director of the Mint Preston in his  ���annual report says there is no doubt  that the silver coins of the United  S ates are now being counterfeited  exactly similar to the genuine, size,  weight and devices. Some "bf these  coins cannot bo distinguished from the  genuine, even by experts. One  counterfeit silver half dellar has made  its appearance in the East and- West,  tlie weight ot which is 1:)2 grains,  with a fineness of Si)7\. whi'e the  ���weight of the genuine is V+19, and  the fineness i/00.

The: capital of the company is  ��550,&00, in shares of il each.' Tlie.  i3oaru of Directors is composed a.-  follows:" Col. Robert Baring, Capt.  H; French, Andrew Haes, Fred.

E.. the  consulting engineer.- while,the offices  are at 20, Tlireadneedle street, E. C.  Messrs. Evans, Culeman & Evans are  the company's commercial agents ,in  British Columbia.  The company "has been incorporated to acquire, and work one ofthe  properties belonging to the Vancouver  and British Colnmbia Goneral Exploration Company, Limited, which  comprises six valuable silver-lead  'hinina: claims known as the Grovcr,  Peerl  ess,  Cnrrie, Currie Fraction.  Stevenson and Kate." The property  is situated on the ea^t side of Slocan  lake, about uvo miles from Silverton  and not far from New Denver.  These properties were selected by  llr. Callahan, and a report from him  accompanies the prospectus. There  .is/also a separate report confirming  that of Mr. Callahan, by Mr. J. D.  Sword, M. E. There is a variation  in the two leportaas to the printable  profits of the uiiw, Mr. Callahan  basins- his calculations on the ore  producing an average of ��U) ounces of  silver and 40 per cent, lead per ton.  and on a daily output of 37 tons of  hand-sorted ore, plus ',.1.50 tons of con  centra ting ore, whereas "Mr. Sword  bases his figures -on the ore producing  an average of 53 ounces o:' silver and  27 per cent, lead, and on..a daily on -  put of only 30 tons of ha reported ore,  plus 120 tons of concent rati u ir ore.  tf, however, the mean of these bases  be taken, it will he seen tliat on a  footing of onlv 250 working days in  the year, a net profit of over ��250,  GOO���say '^t 2.12,500���per annum ma v  be anticipated, -sufficient to j ay very  large' dividends on the company's  apital and make ample allowances  for reserve, etc., etc. This calculation is based on'a', mean output of 1(58  tons of ore .per day, but with the pro:  l>oscd developments,-a much larger  jLiujnio could be made.  .Messrs. Callahan and Sword estimate that the necessary plant ar.d  machinery for the complete equipment  of the mine can be provided and  erected for between ��9000 and ��10,-  00U. It is expected that the plant  will be in oj eration eaiiv in the  spring.  The company is to pay for the property the sum oi ��500,000, of which  ��25fp00 will be in cash an��475,000 in  shares. The present issue of, shares  is for ��525,000, which wiilieave ��25,-  000 for working, capital, after paying  the purchase money. This will leave  ��25X00 unissued, wbich .will bo reserved for further use, as may be  required. ,  The capital and the purchase price  will horh appear large in comparison  with the figures which have hitherto  been dealt in for properties in ��� either  the Sloean or Trail creek districts.  Should, however, the estimates of the  two engineers-r-as regards tonnage  output, working expenses, and value  of the ore, be  realised, the  property  will be able to pay large dividends{  tm   the ��525,U00 invested.      A test  shipment ot about three tons, sent to  the Tacoma smelter, gave 94 ounces  of silver and 59.2 per cent, lead, or a  gross vaiue of ^7.35 per ton.'  The  results achieved in .other mines in the  Slocan certainly go to show tl at properties in that district are likely  to  yield   profits   and   attain   a  value  scarcely realized at present.

The.total wealth of the richest family in the .world, the Rothschilds, is  said toamonut to more than $2,000,-  00,), 000. This great mass of property  doubles itself every fifteen years. It  would not seem impossible for. the  wealth of the entire world to come  inr-o the hands of these-fortunate Jews  were it not for the one fact.

It has already been remarked that  the development of our mineral re  sources would induce an accompanying boom in other industries. Such a  result is already beginning to be realized! and this despite the poor transportation facilities existing between  Ontario and the Kootenay district.  The "William Hamilton Manufaetur  ing Company are shipping from their  works at Peterborough an unusually  large marine boiler which is ��� being  sent to British Columbia, where it  goes into a steamer for the Columbia  and Kootenay Steam Navigation  Company for a stern-wheel stoamer,  fitted with all modern improvements,  sailing the Columbia River and  Arrow Lakes in the Kootenay country. The boiler is of the locomotive  type, with a working preasure of 160  lbs. Its length is 28 feet overall,  the diameter of the barrel is 6 feet,  the measurements of the fire-box, in  which over two cords of wood can be  consumed- at one time, are 8 feet long  7 feet 7 inches from top of grate bars  to top of furnace, and averages 5 feet  0 inches in w'dth.  only kept six pounds of it after the  rest had been destroyed. He wa>  told that it was a very valuable article, and in consequence he brought  a sample of it to a drug store, where  he was offered for it a price which by  no means approached its valur.  5 Air. IQnghorn went {back to Digby  by the steamer Prince Rupert 'aijd  took the ambergris to a local draijg&t.  who, upon close examination, identi  fied it and on looking up the price  list found that .it was worth ^per  ounce.  The fisherman's feeliugs can be  imagined when he learned that he  had wasted about 9o pounds of, the  ambergris, which, had he kept it,  would have brought him for the lot  ��56,000, As it is, .he only has left  about six pounds. The same which  was shown to the reporter at the drug  store was broken from a lump weighing1 42 pounds, I* resembles - tallow  very much.

"Why," said a Chicago man, the  other day, " you dannucks don't appreciate your own advantages. - You  haven't wakened up to the value of  your possessions, If Chicago alone  there are 300 brokers' offices where  Canadian mining stocks are being  vigorously handled."  P A O'FaRrel in a recent talk  about the Sloean said :  "The Slocan is about the richest  galena district ever known to man.  There is lead and silver stored in the  lodes of the Slocan mountains sul'fici-  ent to pav off the national debts of  France ar.d the United States. .It,  will take a generation to get it out,  and,.i�� the process millions will be  benefitted and enriched;"  Canadians who follow the mining  business will find it to their ad vant  age to become citizens of the United  States. By doing so they can operate1  in both countries upon equal terms.  By not being citizens Dt Uncle SamV  country they are shut out from holding or staking mineral claims in tha'  republic for. which a patent has not  been obtained, while in the Dominion  an alien is just, as good as a citizen,  minerally speaking.  The Gibson stock is being sold in  Toronto  by  C.   B. Murray.    He ad-  vertises this property as being in the  heart of the Slooah   While the Gibson  ;s a promising property it is not in the  Slocan at all.    It is on Kaslo creek in  tiie Ainsworth division.    TheSlocan's  name  is taken advantage  of  upon  (���.very occasion  by stock dealers in  Toronto, some of whom do nor, value  y ath very highly.  In 1890 the number of Canadians in  the Scate of Washington amounted to  60,000. C. H. Lugrain writing about  it to an eastern paper, says :���  "It is a remarkable tact tjiat there  are more Canadians  in  the State of  Washington than there are in'tlie ad  joining.province of British Columbia,  and yet if the two are compared it  will' be  found   that   the   Canadian  province far surpasses the American  state in natural ��� resources * and  in opportunities "which capital, energy and  courage can  turn to  good account  The province is  nearly four times as  large as the state, and  although  ��  large portion of its area  must be left,  out of consideration   because of its  high latitude or high elevation, the  fact remains that British  Columbia  has more umber,  more gold, more  silver,   more tioal,  more iron, more  copper,    more .  extensive.\fisheries,,  more grazing lands, probably no less  an area of arable .lands and a,better  geographical position   in  respect to  .the growing commerce of the' Pacific  Ovican than the state to the south of it;  Yet Washington  has   six  /times, .at  lea&t. the population of British Columbia, and of its population  more than  Mie-sixth were  born  in Canada. ��� Is  not this simple and literally correct  statement ofthe case enough to challenge the attention of  the  people of:  the Dominion ?     Can the Canadian'  government and parliament attempt  a more patriotic task than to discou-  ver a means whereby the Canadian  portion of the great Pacinc Northwest  can keep step with its neighbor to the  south in the great march of progress  which has now begun?"  From present appearances it looks  to us as though in a short time there  will be more Yanks,in British Columbia than there are in tne State oi  Washington.  if is at such a time that an artificial  handicap is placed upon us in the  race by the solemn acknowledgement  of the mother country, in the face of  Christendom, that the United States is  the paramount power, and is entitled  to a preponderating influence in this  "hemisphere, and that-so tar as this  continent is cone'erned, , no. matter  what the prowess or ambition of her  children, or the richness of the heri-.  tage God has honored them fwith.

CANADIAN   NURSES   MUST  GO.  D%Barry Receives a Gratifying, Message  That Will Enable Him to War  on Women.  Buffalo, N. Y.���Immigration Inspector DeBarry received from Washington last night,notice of a new rul  ing by the Secretary of the Treasury  on the Alien Labor Law. This ruling  is on the question that was raised in  this city two years ago as to whether  the Canadian trained nurses. who  come to this country to work in hos  pitals do so in violation of law.  The Secretary of the Treasury has  .ruled that these nurses can be deport  ed.    As soon as Mr ..-De Ba rry -received*  the notice of this new ruling he started out to get lists of the Canadian,  nurses in the hospitals.    Mr. DeBarrv  said last night that all of these nurses,  would be deported.  , Inspector EstelI,'of Ogdensburg, if  now at Dansville, where he  went t<  deport five Canadian nuises who are  employed in a sanitarium ther��f  -<r��'-  Rabbit Mountain.  According  to advices  from Port  Arthur, reports reaching there irom  the Rabbit Mountain silver mine say  everything on that property is in  good shape, and the chances are thai  the mine will soon be turning oit bullion. A gang of men under Mr. W.  Leany of Wood side. Bros, foundry and  machine shop, Port Arthur, have beei  engaged for some time in, refitting,  cleaning, and in other ways putting  the vast amount of machinery in order  for use, the mine, having been closed  down. A gang of eight men are now  at work pumping out the.shafts of th<  mine, which have become filled with  water.  Capt. Dan McPhee, one ofthe owners of the mine, Js superintent ing the  work and hopes to have active min  ing work shortly.  The Rabbit Mountain .mine is three  miles west of the oncefamous; Beaver  mine, and is right inilie heart of the  big .silver producing group which  some years ago were turning out  hundreds ;of thousands of dollars'  worth of bright metal; Although fchr  price of silver is down at thepresent  time, ahoT that fa0t is a hai^ iorie f(>r  sil ver mine owners;; t;o t>uck: against,  it is generally hoped itl^at; t^^tarting  of the Rabbit Mounta iri^tiall be only  a commencement to> renewed activity  in silver mining here.  a*; municipal elections must be British  j-ubjects. . This Act   withdraws   the  franchise from a large proportion of  the residents of the new mining towns  ofthe Kootenay country.   More than  half the  population:; of Rossland is  made up of Americans,   While this  Act,,at first sight, seems harsh, we  think it will be generally approved  of by the people of Canada.   In fact  we might justifiably go a step or two  further in limiting the privileges of  Americans in this country.    Canada  is forced by the   American   people  themselves to do many things that  appear boorish and nnjustifiable. . If  we treated them in the same way as  they treat us we would not stop at  disfranchisement.    We would deny  them the privilege of owning property  in Canada unless they became British  subjects.   That would make it difficult for them to operate mines in this  country, and to make fortunes out of  our resources.    If Canada returned  tit for   tat  we   would   pass an. alien  labor law, to  prevent workiiigmen  coming into this country and competing with our own people.    A law  of this kind would shut out. hundreds  of miners who have left the, United  States for the higher wages of British  Columbia.   It would shut ouV'quite  a number of American operators wfio  have invaded'the Bothwell oil fields  with then . mechanics and drilling  outfits.   If Canada applied the screws  as tightly aft .the Americans apply  them to us they might complain witti  more reason, but as tbe laws of the  two countries stand at present they  are receiving better treatment than  they deserve.   The present would be  a favorable opportunity tqr Canada .to  force the United. States to withdraw  its unne.ighborly and   boorish , alieh  laws.    Under present conditions we  would   be  justified   in   denying"ah  American citizen the right /to own a  a mine or any other real estate in  the Dominion.   We would be justified  in excluding American  workingmen  from the  country.   We  are   not in  favor of establishing such harsh in  trrnational relations between the two  countries..but when-the American^  treat us" as Uitlanders we are forced*  "o treat them as   such   too.��� Toronto  World  TURNER, BEETON & CO.,  WHOLESALE   MERCHANTS,  SHIPPERS   AND  iMP   .

THE   hlLLi*E.  THIRTEEN   MONTHS IN   A   FEAR.  A Proposition to Start in i900 With  A   New Division   of. Time.  Scientific  American.  It is suggfsted that on Jan.. 1, 1900  a   new  division   of   the   year   into  thirteen months be instituted.    It is  ~s* claimed that this is not so preposter  ous as most people would be likely to  consider it a first thought.   If such a  division were made the first twelve  months would have just twenty-eight  days, or four'weeks each,  and the  month twentv-nine, to make.36fi, and  thirty in leap years After a fe*v  days there would be no need to refer  to calenders, as the same clay of the  week would have the' same date  through the year. If Jan, 1 were,  s-iv Mondav, every Monday would be  t'ie 1st. 8th. 15th and 22nd; every  . T lesda'v the 2nd, 9th, 16 and 23rd,  and so throughout the year. Tne  changes of the moon would be. on  about the same dates through the  year, and many calculations;- like  in crest, dates of maturing, notes,  Etster Sundav, and many other im  po -taut. dates would be simplified.,  Although the ��� present _reneratien  W >uld have to figure new dates for.  birthdays and all legal holidays exr-  c ^pt New Year-would be on different  dates, yet the. gain will. be more  than the loss, as that would be permanent, and the objections trifling.  The proposed change certainly has  the merit of novelty, and it is just to  say that the arguments in favor, of  the metric system on the ground of.  utility apply with considerable' force  in the present, case.   We .fear, however,   that   the    objections   oh   the  grounds, of   sentiment, ' whic|j.r are  strong in the'matter of;,weights 'and  measures? would* be even   stronger'  against the proposed revision iof -Our  methods of computing time.  f.his smelter project inclu le the principal stockholders in the War Eagle  mine and several New York and  London capitalists, inclu ling F.

NORTHPORT'S   LUCK. \  Northport is to have a smelter and  expects by,next June to be in active  competition for the handling of Trail  ci-eely ores. It is stated on good authority that the project has taken  definite form and the contract will  soon be let. E. II., Wedikind, formerly , superintendent of the   T.aii  smelter, is now in the east and it is  understood that he has purchased the  machinery for the new smelter at  Pittsburg. The people at Northport  are highly jubilant over the encouraging -outlook for the future of their  t > wn. With a cha nee of having large  government sampling works established there and a .smelter assured  them,' the town is bound in the mat'  future to become a point of considerable commercial importance.  The new smelter'will have a capac  ity of 250 tons daily and will be  constructed so as to t.eat both silver,  lead and gold copper ores: The former ores will come, from the Slocan.  Kaslo and Ainsworth camps, -'while,  Rossland and Trail will furnish for  the present all the gold-cbp[-er ores  needed. The smelter will be constructed on the most modern plans  obtainable and will be able to h.- ndle  very low grade ore at a profit to mine  owners. '. The -.'freight rates on ore  from Rossland to the smelter will be;  seventv-five cents per ton, while the  treatment rate will be $6.25, making  a total of $7.00 for freight and treatment. This will permit ore running  in value from $12 to 129 per ton to be  mined at a good profit wherever it is  found in large-bodies. It is estimated  that fully half a million tons of ore of  this grade are already in sight ot  camp.'   The parties who are behind  A Sfecial from Aspen, Colo., to the  Denver News says : D. Y"7- Brunton,  one ot the best known mining engineers of the state, returned yesterday  from a trip to the Kootenay - mining  disrrict, British Columbia. To the  Republican correspondent Mr. Brunton stated that the cunutry is a  wonderfully interesting   one  and is  marvellously rich in p.'eoioiis metals  What is known asthe Blocan.of which  New Denver is the ^principal town,  interested the visitor >most. This is  the silver section o"' the Kootenay,  and .Mr. Brunton said that in a jren  eral way it is much like what Aspen  was in ,'80. . The whole country, he  states, is enjoying an 'extraordinary  boom and the transportation facilities  would do credit to a much older coun  try. The railroads have followed the  trails and in nearly every instance  have preceeded the wa'gon roads.  .One great drawback to the country  is the heavy snowfall and the dens**  timber. The latter makes prospecting extremely difficult. Everything  the prospector uses must-be carried on  his back, as neither horses nor burros  can get through the dense forest's.  Snow is another drawback and nothing in the way ofinspecting can be  done save for a few months in the  summer. So heavy is the .snowfall  that work during, the -winter.' upon  all except the Jargesfc mines, where  many:teams are employed, had to be  .'abandoned. K'is' aTpbor country for"  poor men. There are .many looking"  for work, yet.despite the, fact hund:  reds are going into thev section.and  much hardship and, suffering can b��  r,he only result. There is not work  fui\the men belonging to the country  and consequently it. is next to impossible for a-stranger going in there, in  the winter to expect work.  The miners are a splendid lot of  men, all young and vigorous, and  fully two-thirds of them are from the  United States. He saw many miners  who formerly wo. ked in.Colorado. Of  the ores Mr. Brurrto.i "sifys they are  very rich. In the S'ocan district the  lead and zinc ore runs all the way  from 100 to 500 ounces in silver to  the ton. The gold section is in what  is known as the Rossland district, at  the other end of the country. . The  ores there are all copper and gold.  Vengeance.
