the production of Ulah has been well
maintained, the quantity being 49,870
short tons, about 1,800 tons in excess of
the production of 1900.
Tlm estimated consumption of lead in
1901 was 269,905 short tons, as compared
with 269,802 toiiR in 1900, and with 226,-
815 tOns in 1899.
The total value of the lead imported
for consumption in the United States in
1901, was $364,459, as compared with
$702,218 in 1900 The value of the ex-
ports of lead from ,this country in 1901
was $28,584, as compared with $459,571
in 1900.
During the first eleven months of
1901 the price of lead was maintained
ot 4.87}£ cents at New York but in December the American Smelting and Refining company reduced the official
price to 4 cents..During the whole year
the lead market was held stationary by
main forca, although tho quantities
which consumption would not absorb
were added to thes'tock in first hands.
Low prices prevailed in Europe during
the year, anditowards the close of the
year reached a figure in the Loudon
market equivalent to 2.40 cents per lb.

Re*. E.G. W. MacColl left Wednesday morning for his Eastern home, over
the C. P. K. Mr. MacColl has been
Presbyterian pastor in this field for
something over a year, during which
time he haa i been like a kind
father to all with whom he came in contact; winning:the confidence and esteem
of all, young and old. He carries with
himxo hia^^w^fleia^rlab^ThTlnF
cere regard of everybody, and tbe deep,
pure love of the children of the community. When ago makes snowy I he
beard there comes a reverence that all
muet respect; but when there is behind
and beneath that evidence of ago a
heart welling over with love for mankind, the combination draws all men
Godward by an impulse that cannot be
resisted. Such has heen the experience
of all who have been associated in anv
way with Mr. MacColl
Monday evimingnt Silverton a farewell social was given in his honor, and
oo Tuesday evening tho ladies of the
Presbyterian church of tliis town prepared a splendid evening's entertainment for the friends gathered to bid
him farewell. A short programme of
speeches, interspersed with vocal music
and children's recitations, duets and
group singing, took up theearlv part
of the evening; then came tho refreshments and "social" features. Revs Mc-
Kee and Seymour were present from
Slocan City,|and Revs. Cropp and Head-
loy participated from the other New
Denver churches.
At the close of the eoclal feature
Messra. McRao and McLean were called
upon for a duet. Thev responded
heartily, but it was n duet somewhat
out of tho ordinary. On behalf of the
bachelors and married men of the town
they read a letter of appreciation and
regret to the departing pastor, accom-
panylng it with a purso of $40. in ad-

,What   Is Being Done
Property -Bright
at the Big Hew Denver
Prospects Ahead.
On the 28th of June,, 1897, Frank L.
Byron stumbled upon a very rich find
of galena ore outcropping on the sum-
mitof a low hill a mile southeast of
New Denver, and half a mile from the
lake shore. He staked it, naming the
claim the ' Fidelity. Although this
ground had been staked and reBtaked
by old-time prospectors, it remained for
a tenderfoot to find the ore. Byron and
partners commenced work upon their
rich find. They borrowed money and
employed a large force of men, ahd for
a time everything looked promising
Shipments were made, and the locators
became impressed with the idea that
they had a better thing thau the
the Payne, and as good as the Bank of
England. They refused every offer ^°-
and would not listen to anvthingless ^°
than $60,000 cash. They dfdn't get it. No.
Finally the surface ore was exhausted No.
and real mining had to be done. Here
they went under, and finally the property was bought by F J. Finucane and
Scott McDonald for something like
While the Fidelity was at its best. J.
O. Harris located the Bosun, and traced
the Fidelity lead into Bosun ground.
He started a shaft and bad proceeded
About this time^ W. H; Sandiford appeared. He liked the indications and
made an offer to Mr. Harris, by which
he aot the property for $7,500. He proceeded with the shaft and In less tnati
20 feet encountered a chlmuey of rich
ore, from which he cleaned up several
thousand dollars over and above the
cost of the property and all develop
ment thereon. From' that day dates the
history of the Bosun. It has" been ojne
continuous record of rich surprises,
and for the capital invested, of big dividends. Shortly after Messrs. Finucane
and McDonald took over the Fidelity,
Mr. Sandiford succeeded in having that
property amalgamated with the Hosuu,
and has since worked both properties
through the Bosun tunnels
To date six tunnels have been driven.
From levels Nos. 4, n and fi the great
bulk of the ore bas been taken—1,000
tons having been shipped to date. The
gross returns from this ore has been, approximately, t88O,0C0.
Somethiug over 8180,000 has been
spent upon the property in development, buildings, etc, leaving the company a net profit of about $,2"»0,()0<i This
on an original outlay of $",&« in iohs
than four years, is not too bad.
But, as tlie good old Methodist ladv
would say, "the half has not been told?'
What the Bosun has been is not a
parallel to what itlwill be Ittatanda today in a better conditional a mine than
at any time in its history, For the past
several months the management has
pushed development far ahead of the
stopea, and with the connection recently made between No 1 tunnel and
the upper workings, hundreds of loot of
new ground Is opened for stoping, in
which the oro bodies have been proven
larger and richer than in any of the
ground previously worked A* visit to
the property and an inspection of the
ore bodiea blocked out convinces one
that New Denver haa a bigger mine in
the Bosun than lt« clti-/<>n« have ever
realist, and even if no further development were done, there la enough oro in
sight to keep the preneitt force of 35
men busy two or throe years taking it
And the overground workings havo
advanced as fa«t aa the underground.
With the connection made between No
I aud N'o i tunnels, all the or* from
the upper workings can im handled

from the apex, The stopes between
the No. 2 and 3 levels are the richest
that have been opened on the property,
but the shaft connecting No. 1 and 2
has shown the big ore body to be continuous and of even greater richness
than above. In the test drifts that have
been run from what has been dubbed
the "lost'shaft," the ore is from 18 to 24
inches in thickness and is ih every di-
reciion on the lead.
The following tables will give a correct idea of the amount of work done on
the property:

It will be seen that uo stoping ground
has been opened between tunnelr. 5 and.
(J. Connection has not been made between these levels. No. 0 is driven on
the vein in what is known as Fidelity
bluff, across the slough or lake, tapping
the vein at a depth of 1,000 from the
apex. Ore bas been found hero, but it
will be two years or more before the
management will find it necessary to
draw upon these reserves The oro
blocked out below the No. 5 level will
keep tho mine running at its present
capacity for that length of Mine When
connection is made between No. 5 and
G, and thi!'ground in the oig hill is
opened up betwoeu the lowor levels the
company will havo a depth of 1,500 on
the vein, and it is believed
that the ore bodies in the bluff will be
even larger than those found In tho
ledge up to the present time.
Manager Sandiford and his assistants
are justly proud of the work that has
been put upon the property. Much adverse criticism has been made by outsiders, and much "knocking'' done bv
people ignorant of the facts, but the
property has kept up its record as a
steady shipper and is proven today a
bigger and richer mine than over it
has been. Results are what count.. Mino
managers are after ore, and when thoy
can find it and keep it and ship it and
pay dividends—well, there Isnt much
use talking about " knockers."

The time has
come when Canada should meet Yankee bluff with
Canadian spuuk. Commenting upon the imposition of the wbodpulp
duty by the Washington government, the Toronto Telegram says:
"Instead of ignominiously giving in, let Canada give Uncle Sam
tariff for tariff, export duty for
export duty. The Canadian motto
should be an eye for an eye and a
tooth for a tooth, to the limit.
"The further Canada pursues
this policy the better, for, inasmuch
as this country possesses the raw
materials, Canadians will only
benefit if the United States are shut
off from drawing upon these raw
materials. The only result of the
Americans' deprivation will be that
Canadian industries and Canadian
capital and Canadian labor will be
enabled to utilize their own raw
materials in turning out for the
world's consumption the manufactured products which the United
States factories, using these very
Canadian raw materials, now supply to the world's markets. The
natural effect will lie the lending
of an immense impetus to Ona-
dian industry and Canadian trade.
Let Canadians, therefore, stand fast
and quit themselves like men."

On this important question the
> following is an abstract of a paper
/ by G. \y. Tower, Jr., read before
the International Mining Congress:
In the broadest sense a mine
may be said to consist of a body of
ore sufficiently large and rich to
pay the original purchase price, all
ofthe costs of mining, reduction,
plant and transportation, together
With a large percentage of interest
on the investment, In determining, therefore, what constitutes a
mine it is necessary to consider
each item of possible expense
chargeable against the property, all
physical and geological conditions,
and such ore bodies as are developed, together with their bearing upon possible futiure ore bodies.
Location of the property is also important. In this connection one
miiBt consider the availability of
water, fuel and timber, theacees-
sjbiii.ty of.,the property,, .bpjih for
the pujjibse of, shippipg supplies to
the mine and of marketing the ore
or bullipn. Dumping ground, mill
and possibly smelter sites have to
be considered... ;;     ;    , ^
The, geological^ .incj'   pfyypicall
problems in cbhiiection  with0 the
determination of a mine deal perhaps more with the future of the
mine than, with   its  actual cash
value. In this connection one must
consider  not only the   enclosing
rocks, their persistence and definition arid influence upon the mineralization, but must take into consideration the fissure, arid, if present, the fault systems^ because, in
the majority of deposits the ore
occurs in fissures arid faults, as we
say   in  "fissure veins."    Fissures
and faults are additionally important, because in many classes, as for
example, contact arid impregnation
deposits, the continuity of the ore
bqdy_. must   be   determined.     If
faulted by intersecting fissures tbip
must be known   and the consequences determined.   It \t\ a^act
thai ore bbtUes tire more often irregular  in dip,  strike and form
than otherwise, the valuable por-
tiqn.of the ore, bjaing controlled by
some physical fact, .such, as the. jri-
ters&tioii of fissures mth certain
strata or igneous rocks,  or with
each other.   In a known mining
"_     district it is often possible by care
ful observation qf these "lacts ,to
calculate tlie exact position of valuable botlies of oris.   In the district
of Rico, Colorado, there are many
vertical  veins which intersect a
great bedding faujt pi* plaice of disturbance, approximately parallel to
the strike and dip of the strata.
The mining   in that district has
demonstrated  the occurrence   of
large bodies of  rich ore at this
point of intersection.   So regular
are these strata, the veins, and this
fault in strike and dip, that within
reasonable distances one can calculate the position of the ore body
and some value for it without development.    This, however; cannot be taken as the actual worth,
because previous to sampling and
measurements the exact value cannot be determined.     In a very
much simpler form the Bamo condition of affairo, as far as the value
of property is concerned, exists in
Butte.   I would aay that the great
bulk   of business which leads to
the development of mines Jr done
through leafce and bond.  The lease
being for the purpone of opening
and tCHting the property to see if
it is worth the price whioh the
Imnd calls for. Thc lire of the bond
te usiiallv hot leu, than one year.
The character of thc ore above
and below water Ih un important
factor, because in most cases an
entirely different method of treatment Ir necessary for the two ores.
A hove water level we have frequently high-grade ores that can
bp quickly ami cheaply reduced by
9 simple mill upon the ground,
whereas below water level the mill
process may lie Involved and expensive or It even may lie noces-
•ary to smelt the ores. Thene are
important items in the cost of production, because nf the additional
ulant required and the uncertain
factor of the cost of redaction.
Fl wijly, frout the geological stand •
point it te necesnary to consider
whether the ore*, even though nul-
phitle, are primary or s&softdairv.
The geology of Butte, km exi'inpli-
fied by Emmons, Weed, Van H$
and other*, nhnws that In manv
oases there te a zone in the vein
wherein are deposited below water
level very rich bodies of ore, which

that, though the ore* at depth are
still profitable, even in the face of
constantly increasing mining coat,
due to the greater depth from which
the nre is mined, they are not hy

more or less striking examples of
this phenomenon—a zone of oxidization, a zone of sulphide en-
enrichment and a zone of permanent values.
^Ve have been dealing with the
future of mines perhaps too extensively, but let us consider upon
what basis a mine should be bought
and paid for. Recalling the definition given in the beginning of this
paper, ' 'A mine must contain ore
bodies sufficiently large and rich to
Irepay all charges against them, in-
eluding capital invested and a
large percentage of interest,"would
naturally lead to the .question of
how to determine these facts!, It
is manifest that the gross values
are to be determined, only by
actual measurements of the ores
blocked out, and the determination
of the values by careful and conscientious sampling, with sufficient
precautions and checks to assure
the engineer that his results are
, As ore bodies, like other bodies,
| have ^hree dimensions, .they can
only ^>e blpckecl out by actual development. These ore bodies must
bo cut and drifted upon at sufficient
intervals to determine the length,
size arid form bf the valuable
shoots. It is rare that develop-
rrient is so complete that all the ore
bodies can be treated with equal
weight. It is therefore, customary to divide one's estimates into
three classes:
1. Ore technically in sight.
2. Ore reasonably in sight.
3. Ore that under the conditions
existing should be expected with
further development.
This done, it is but a step to the
calculation of the gross value of
the ore bodies.
The next step must necessarily
be the determination pf the method
of mining and trertment of the ores
for all time and of whatever grade
and kiivd. ,Jhe, low-grade, and
high-grade ores, ihe oxidized and
the base ores, and to calculate the
cost of converting them into cash.

contents to the top of the pole and
drops the letter into a collecting

returns to its place at the bottom j
of the pole, and, while doing so,!
releases the wheels of the collection j

We iu Butte have been compelled
to look to our titles and our rights
under those titles. We must determine, after being satisfied that
we have a legal right to our property, what is tbe extent of our legal
rights to our own ground and outside of it. If wc have extra lateral
rights and it there ia a1 possible
conflict of title to the very ore

coming from other than the ground
in question. While there are few

Just as in mmy fruits, the full
completion of maturing is but an
invisible step from the beginning
of decay ; so in successful accomplishment often lies the germ of
future failure. Trades unionism
in its day has done a great work.
Capital is, and always has been
selfish, though perhaps not more so
than labor, and, in pursuing its
chief object, to obtain as much as
possible from as little as possible
expenditure; the moral right of individual helpers has often been
trodden upon. In old days this
course met with comparatively few
obstacles that could not be overcome; capital was strong, laoor
weak, with the natural result that
the one was being continually overridden by the other. Then came
the days of organization r and
unions were formed, which did
much to protect the worker from
the greed of grasping employers.
They did good work, and such
work was sorely needed; had it
not been for the success with which
they met in the face of most determined resistence, the condition of
labor today might have approached
something very near to serfdom.
Thus moralizes the Monetary
Times. " Will Unionism decay ?"
seems to be a puzzling question,
but the answer is simple, and
simply no. That is, if unionism is
true to its principles of justnice and
fairness upon which it is based.
Unionism, as we take it, is merely
an organized demand for justice
and fair play, as between the natur-
olly conflicting claims of capital
and labor. '' Naturally conflicting
interests," is merely a convenient
form of expression, not a statement
of fact. There is really no conflict between the interests of capital aud labor. When capitul yields
to laber its just dues it creates the
conditions that permits labor to
perform the mosi profitable service, and when labor, in its turn,
yields to capital its just dues, it
creates the conditions which permit capital to give the most, and
the most profitable, employment.
Where the seeming conflict of interests enters is when neither capital nor labor acts up to the full
measure of reciprocal justice. The
human elemeut of selfishness,
which unconsciously to us, often
colors our best intentions, if allowed to dwarf our best concep-
newspaper, and oni}' when roused
from his reading by a waited ordered coffee and a ham sandwich.
The waiter executed the order and
deposited with the homely fare a
large pasteboard check. The absent-minded one went on reading
his paper. Some quarter of an
hour after, the waiter returned.
"Anything more, sir?" he said.
" Yes," snapped the man, "get me
a fresh sandwich; the one you
brought me was dry as a bone."
The waiter looked down and gasped.
" Lor■!" he exclaimed; "here's
the sandwich I brought you ! You
have eaten the check !"

When we see hell spelt in some
newspapers with a hyphen, as for
instance, ''heaven and h-1," one is
strongly reminded of the New England prude who wrapped the legs
of the table in napkins, because
naked, they looked immodest,
When used in a blasphemous
sense, it is all right to spell the
word with a hyphen but in any
other sense it is absurd.—Beau
mont Journal.
When the word hell is used so
extensively by the ministers from
the pulpit, we see no harm in using

the New England prude, reminds
us that the same lady made
a trip to Texas years ago,
over the M. K. and T. railway.
Just before entering the Indian
Territory, the conductor announced
to the tourists that in a few min
utes they would see the beautiful
Cherokee Strip. The lady blushed,
pulled down the window curtains
and began reading, while every
man on board leaned way out of
the windows.—Current Issue.

creates the apparent conflict of interests. Unionism, will not decay
so long as it holds to the principle
of justice, a principal which is
eternal, a condition which it must
necessarily confer upon any organization in which justice enters
as the essential motive. Trade
unionism will last so long as this
principle is kept to the front as the
prime consideration. When both
capital and labor come to a practical recognition of this principle;
when the Golden Rule, laid down
by the Divine Carpenter of Nazareth, the founder of true unionism.
" Do unto others as ye would that
others should do unto you," becomes the moving principle of lioth
then, and not till then, will tbe
labor problem be solved. Tliis
problem came into the world with
the fall of man ; and it will not be
removed until the principles of the
ransom from the fall, come into
full exercise.—Peterboro Examiner
A curious inane ha* been raised
by the Canadian government, and
is to be settled by the court*. The
issue is with the Dominion Iron
and Steel company, which claims
bounty under the law for certain
ouantitieH of pig iron made from
Canadian ore, and for other quan-
titioo ot Hteel made (rom Canadian
pig iron. The government, however, claims that m the bW*j1 wa*
made from the direct proee*-t—the
molten iron being carried direct to
the Hteel furnacea—no pig iron won
actually made; and an molten iron
te not pig iron, the uteel wm not
made from pig under the meaning
of the law. To us thin teeim rather
a quibble upon twlinicul term*.

An English town council is in a
state of delighted amusement.
An old maid living on the Front
wrote to it about ten days ago,
complaining of a man who bathed
just opposite her window at six
o'clock every morning.
The council wrote to the mah,
who replied that it was so early in
the day he had hoped no one could
take exception to his bathing off
the Front; but that he would gladly
go a mile higher up.
Last week, however, the council received another letter of complaint from the lady;

Information has bean received
that Professor A. G. Bell,
inventor of the telephone, is
personally supervising the construction of an airship at his home
at Baddeck, Cape Breton. The
craft is said to be the result of
years of study on the part of Professor Bell, and represents an expenditure of many thoiisniids of
dollars. It is twenty feet long and
is composed of seventy-five dis-
distinct parts. It is ceiled internally with canvas, and in places
with linen stretched on piano wires.
Five miles of this wire were used
in its construction. The principle
of the kite will be utilized to a considerable extent in this machine,
which is to carry human freight.
This means that the aeroplane
system, not used in any of SantoB-
Dumont's airships, will be a feature of Professor Bell's machine
