Wore flbow Smelter Rates
J. L. Parker, oh behalf of the local
smelter combine, some time ago endeavored to show, atid Intor to prove by
expert juggling' with figures, that the
Ciinndinn stneltors wore giving1 the loca|
miner.* a better freight and treatment
rate than was given bv the uoielter
combine acrosB the line. His statements
were denied in these columns, and it I
has repeatedly been shown that J. L
Parker has figured wrong, and that the
local smelters are not giving abetter,
nor yet as good, a rate aa is given by
the American Smelting and Refining
We are in a position ti offer further
proof of thia statement. Below is a copy
of a bona'fide letter from th* American
Smelting aud Refining company to a
Slocan mine owner It speaks for
"Dear Sir:—I beg to "acknowledge
receipt of your favor of May 28th. In
rep.y beg to say that we will quote you
a rate nl $5 treatment on your ore in
carload lots delh ered in Denver.
"The abDve rate is quoted with the
understanding that should London price
of lead be £12 or above, (I per ton will
be added to the treatment charge for
each rise of JB1 in the quotation.
•'We will pay for 95 per cent of the
silver contents, and 9o por cent of thc
lead contents, less 81 per 100 lbs. from
the London quotation. We will allow
10 per ceiit zinc free, and will charge
5'J cents per unit for all sine In excess
of 10 per cent.^'

smelter trust—the "Cwnada tor Canadians" are charging $18 and $18.50 for
the same work that the American
Smelting trust agrees to do for to. Can
J. L* Parker figure this out in his
patriotic way so aa to show that tbe Canadian smelters are doing the square
N. J. Cavanaugh, a man who Is, and
has beeu for years, closely engaged in
mining in the Slocan, and one who haa
given the question of freight and
smelter rates close and careful study,
writing on the question of the relation*
existing between the silver-lead mine
ownersofihe Slocan and the smelters
who treat tlieir ore, says:
"For several years aftor the silver-
lead mines of Kootenay wore opened,
we were obliged to soil to the United
States smelters, there bolng no .lead
smelters In oporittlon on this sido ol the
Jinn. Several load smelters wore built,
notably at Pilot Buy, Golden and Hovel-
Ntoko, out none of them mmiiikmI tu be a
kucc-jw. Various rates for freight and
treatment (this term includes all charges
for freight, smelting, refining aud marketing) were paid (luring thoso first
years, but the general tendency was a
downward trend of rates) until the year
1809; wliuu the prevailing rate (all
charges Included, except (Induction*
for Ions In smelting) was $(8 50 per ton
During the years 1893 and 1899, thn
Hall Mints smelter added a lead stack
to Ita equipment, and the Trail smelter,
which had been acquired by the U I'
11,, did the same, The only prices
quoted for lead ores were the Now York
quotation!, leu* the duty, Freight and
treatment rates (I am sorry tn »»y I are
unable to ititto what proportion was
tor freight, and what for treatment) of
fered by all concerns Luvlng lead ore*
wore vary dote to the figures given
Ho matter how do o to the mines the
smelter may hsve been located, ot how
far distant-Omaha, Belby, Kansas
City, Everett, Aurora, Trail or Set
eon, all made the tame charge. In
1800 tho "smelter trust," tm called, wa*
formed. " flta tru»i," for r«a«o»t Utwt

after the formation of "the trust" and

•meltett, via, Everett, Selby, Trail
and Nelson, was held in the Hotel
Kvan, St. Paul, Minnesota, where an
agreement wu made to purchase to a

Kootenay lead mine*.    The smelter

1899, less 70 cents per 100 pounds, is
equal to the average New, 'i oik price
for the same period, 'less, the duty of
81.50 per 1Q0 pounds.   At the first of
the year 1901 (London prices having
men) a further clmrge of SO cents per
100 pounds of lead was made, and the
treatment rate reduced to $19 per dry
ton, once more equalizing the markets
quoted.   VV hat then are the facts?   We
are forced to sell to a trust equally as
potent as the American Smelting and
Refining company^   The  territory  is
apportioned, and if one smelter mad'
a bid for our ore it was useless to go to;
one of the others.   If your output be j
came too great for any one of them to
handle, or if they had a stock of lead
ore on hand, wo wore ordered to ship
to another.   We were told that we were
selling on the London market, but we
were In reality getting the New York
price, as Mr. Parker's figures prove.
Had this parity of prices been main
timed, a'l would have been we'l; but
when London prices went down there
was no corresponding decrease in the
rates charged, and  there  has never
been a return to the rates charged in1
1899    I maintain that ns good a rate
can be had via steamer from Vancou
ver, Seattle, or San Francisco to London, as can be had.from any of the
points named via all rail to New York,
If-we were selling on the Loudon market we should get the fullXondnii price
less the rates charged before the formation of the smelting trusts, and iii
the fact that we do not get those rato
lies the overcharge of which the miner
TcomplainsT"™—A--'-'- ™—:..".-''' ~~-- ., ' -.-'■
•'Assuming that the average ore of
this district carries 50 per cetit of lead
(although many mines ship a fiO and fio
per cent ore) and that I am correct ae
to freights, the Kootenay lead miner
paid during the year 1900 for freight
and treatment t2*>.80 per dry ton; for
1901, 828 per dry ton; and- for 19 >2
824 per dry ton, which rate Is still in
vogue If 818 50 performed certain work
in 1899 it should do as well or better
today In 1899 wo paid freight to New
York; today wo nre supposed to pay
freight to Loudon. Apply the simple
rule of three, and any school boy will
easily prove that we are mulcted by the
diffetenco in rates charged iu 1899 and
tl.oso charged for tho same work at the
prwunit time.
"Nor Is this all Tho average London prico for lead In tho years 19)1 ami
1002 was very close to $2.45 per 100
pounds. Taking 1902 for example: The
lead miner resolved U.45 per 100
pounds; add the United States duty nf
$1.50 per 100 pounds for lead in ore and
wo have the actual cost of Ciinadiiui
lead smelted In the United Suites The
average price of New York lead for the
same period was 11.05, leaving a very
nice margin for that portion of the
western "independent smelter*" on the
oilier nidi: of He line: nnd allowing the
home ''independents'* tn ship their load
to the States, pay tho extra (8212ft per
100 pounds) for lead In pigs, with a
nun-fin of 47ft cents por 100 pounds, pint-
what they save In freight by shipping
uo waste inuttM'tnl,
"What tho Ccour d'Alono miner pays
tor having hia ore treated should not
enter Into this controversy. That price
ia an arbitrary ono fixed by oue of the
most powerful trusts, thoy In turn
holding the price of lead at Ita present
figure. Two wrong* never made a
rightt and the prices paid for freight
aud treatment In the Ccour d'Alenes
heart no more relation tn the actual cost
of smelting, than the price of cotton to
that of blasting powder
"Regardleia of what Mr. Parker (or
anyone else) may aay to the contrary,
tha Kootenay lead miner haa never re
ceivod tho full benefit of the London
market. The first year our mar.
keta were changed, I. it.. 1000 we paid

tion, The smelters composing our
western combination, not Trail aiid
Nelson aloup, did on January lst. 19;'V2,
make a reduction of 84 froin • the * 828
charged. But the reduction was not,
as Mr Parker stales, owing to?the
receipt of a bounty on the refiningp'
lead. Everett, Selby and Nelson made
the same reduction, but they received
no bounty. The reduction' was mide
in response to a demand from the mi tier*
and a move on their part to smelt their
ore, if they got iio redress. Sev&rnl
conditions'attached to this qiussi're
duetion; the zinc limit was reduced
from 10 to 8 per cent, making the'reduction only, $3 on nearly all Slei'an
ores; the old rates were to" havo been
put in force as the London market, re
covered, Tl.e time for settl ment was
put at 90 days after the receipt of. the
nre, thus forcing the producer to stain!
all marked fluctuations Other and
more stringent conditions were to have
been imposed on the 1st of January
last (the manager of the Nelson smelter
'tatingin his annual report that steps
were beipg taken to extend the time
for final settlement for six moiitln--)
making the miner wait fiom Jinje to
Decemberio know what he had aecotii
plished in that month.
"The advent of the American Smqft
(ing and Refining company has been
cried down, but.it made our little combination recede from its position, put
the zinc limit back to 10 per cent, give
us immediate settlement for our ores.
antl a 824 flat rate for 50 per cent lead
ore, regardless of the price of lead on
the London market, lam not defend
ing the American Smelting and lie
tininsr company on any stand they may
have taken, and will always maintain
tlmt we should receive the full London
price, less a fair rate' for freight and
treatment, orllieT?ew York price, less
tlie duty\t\ tiling I have endeavored to
prove we do not get), but I will not
cry, them down or shout patriotism
until our own smelters quit the combination formed three years ago, and
give us our just due. *.\
"Trusting that tho foregoing will pet
the public riyht on the question in hand,
that they mav form their own opinioup
as to tho right or wrong of, tho rates
charged by the smelters, I am, yourp
verv truly* N J Cavaxauqh."
"Sandon, B. C, Juue6th."
Recently tho Wakelfold mine has had
occasion to use half a ton or more of
lead In repairing the piping at tho con
centrator. The cost of the lead is 7
cents a pound. Tho Wakefield is pre-
pniinir toship load ore, out of which
the smelters will take the lead and nay
the Wa'«tfio'.d 1& cents a pound, iesM
the cni-t of freight and treatment, which
brings it down to about, three quarters
of n cent a pound.
And thus dn we see how it works:
Crude lead sold by miner to smelter nt
say 1 cent a pound; refined lead on
which the government pays n bonus to
the smelter for refining, sold by the
smelter to the miner at 7 cents a pound.
In other words, the man who mines the
lend gets |IJ cents a pound, while the
man who smelts and refines it, making
tho man who mines it nay for the
smelting and refining out of his 1ft cents
a pound, gets 7 cents a pound. Olorlou-

The Mining Record concludes in
its own mind that the "local press"
does not • apeak with authority;
that the "local press" is indiscreet,
and that it is adding to the difficulties with which the silver-lead
mining industry has to contend.
On the same principle the cushion
chair mine managers of England
used to think they could do better
mining in B. 0. from the London
oflice than the local managers who
wero on the Bpot.
Perhaps tho "local press" knows
moro about the condition of affairs
in the mining section than the Min-
ing Record will or can over know.
And perhaps the "local press" can
see what is discouraging the employment of capital better than
the Mining Record can comprehend.
At all events, The Lkdok, as one
of the "local press," does not intend to be silenced on this ques
tion of excessive smelter rates,

columns that have not been, and
can not be, controverted. Wo In.

A Kansas City attorney tells
this story to illustrate how witnesses may sometimes be mistaken
as to tho identity of a person who
is injured:

railway. Ho explained thnt he
was on a north bound Main streetcar arid at the curve of Third and
Delaware streets ho was thrown
violently to tho ground and in*

pened, so that we felt justified in
bringing the suit. The case was
duly filed.
Some timo later I was thriwn
into a sweat by receiving a notice
from the Metropolitan attorneys
that they had affidavits from four
different persons who swore that
they had seon the accident and
that tho man waa quite drunk at
tho time and had jumped off the

Little women are always the
pluckiest, .thank goodness! They
would have a hard timo getting a
living otherwise.
If one wants to go on the stage,
one has to bo "divinely tall;"
brains atou't of so much importance. "It does not matter so much
about brains," said.a.pantomime
manager, "but wa must have tall
girls with good figures."
It's the same in other plays. The
ladies who flit through the comedies nre tall and graceful. Thej'
can't act; but that doesn't matter.
"I once tried," said a very short
girl, "to become a parlor-mad.
The registry office keeper was very
much amused itt my presumption,
but said I might go as a'twenty'
until I grew a ft ot or two. For a
parlor-maid height is the first consideration, she said grandly.
Waitresses, it seemed, must also
be tall and graceful."
"The world, it seems to me,"
added this little woman, "would
go to rack and ruin were it not for
tbe tali girls. The rich man would
be horrified if anyone but a tall
maid handed him the asparagus.
His wife could not possibly be
served nt the drapery counter by a
little girl, no matter how capable.
The typewriter girl must be tall;
so must the cashier and the lady
clerk. Stumpy governesses are not
approved of, hor are ladies' companions of small stature. Servants,
business girls, actresses, all who
serve the public, mutt be tall.
"We short girls are despised;
they don't want us. They don't
miud us getting married, perhaps,
because it would.be difficult to persuade a man to marry a woman on
account of her height. That's

has reclined on  the sea's bed un- J

The Glasgow Echo tells of a
knowing young wife who cured
her husband of staying out late at
night in au original way. Before
going to bed she would place two
easy chairs together before the
sitting-room grate and then hold a
lighted match to a cigar until the
room had a faint odor of tobacco
smoke. Although her husband'
never said a word to her about
noticing anything, three "applications" effected a complete cure.

the shrewdness of John D. Rockefeller in saving money in the early
days when he had but a few huud-
_red.tliou8an*<Ldollars. Russe-KSage
once told me in a quiet interval of
business, when we were having a
bowl of bread and milk together at
a pie and biscuit morgue under a
sidewalk in New York, that he
had .known Rockefeller when the
magnate had lived in his neighborhood, not to take milk from the
milkman for weeks together. When
the oil man needed milk he was
accustomed to go out into Central
park where the nurse girls, wheel*
ing their little charges, congregated. When a nurse girl was
looking the other way, Mr. Rockefeller appropriated the linby's nursing bottle and emptied its contents
into a little tin pail ho carried,thus
securing a*good supply of lacteal
fluid at uo expense to himttelf.
•'I remonstrated with Rockefeller on the matter once." said
Mr. Sage, "but ho told me that
the milk was chalky and bad for
such young stomachs, nnd that he

"I will do Mr. Rockefeller the
justice of saying," added Mr. Bage,
"that I never knew him. to take
the same baby's milk twice running, if he recognized tbe child.''
Mr. Sage said that Rockefeller
could never see tliat there was any

For Sale—A hennery, newly blown

This bargain is offered without con

who feeds our hennery, but is made
without reservation.
The chicks must go.
Some mouths ago our pressman set
an empty ink keg out beside the water
barrel. -^. iV-
Recent warm weather melted the ink
from the side of the keg, and it covered
the ground about the barrel with a
soft, fcticky, black substance       .„
Our staff heard a great commotion
about the water barrel, and from the
side window Biddy could he. seen with
wings flown and feathers ruffled, madly
fisrhting tho ink keg
Her beak and head were black with
ink, and tier scratchers were in an
awful condition
Closer investigation discovered Cecil
and Ed in the eoft, sticky, black substance, peeping pitifully and struggl
ing to free themselves, like flies on a
sheet of fiy paper.
Work was stopped in the office and
the whole staff were called to the rescue.
The bulldog was first there.
Biddy came at him like a cyclone with
the feathers on it and a beak of coal
The pup turned tail and ran.
Then the Btaff came on the scene
Together they stood bravely against
Biddy's onslaughts, and rescued Cecil
and Ed.
Into the sanctum sanctorum they
were carried, and with gasoline and old
rags, the soft, sticky, black substance
was washed off of Cecil.
But Ed was in a most deplorable
The only thing about him that wasn't
covered with printer's ink wss his eyeballs.
Jim used a pint of gaBoline more or
less, and several long "strings" of sympathy and sotto-voiced jams en him,but
it was, no use,
Ed was fairly plastered \vith it-so
plastered that his tiny wings stuck
straight out and he couldn't bend his
Finally enough was taken off to
enable him to hobble and he was
turned over to Biddy, who went off as
mad as if the hose had been turned on
Despite our very high opinion of the
good qualities of printer's ink, and of
the great things- that can be accom
pli-hrd by the liberal use of it, yet we
have our doubts about its usefulness in
connection with a hennery, and hav»>
concluded that the two cannot be successfully operated together.
Our hennery is therefore for sale.

Are you almost disgusted
With life, little man?
I will tell you a wonderful trick,
That will bring you contentment
If anything can-
Do something for somebody quick;
Do something for somebody quick !
Are you awfully tired
With play, little girl?
Weak, discouraged and sick ?
I'll tell you the loveliest
Game in the woi Id-
Do something for somebody quick;
Do something for somebody quick !

Though it. rains like the rain
Of the floods, little man,
And the clouds are forbidding and thick,
You can make the sun slime
In your soul, little man-
Do something for somebody quick;
Do something for somebody quick !
Though the skies are like brass
Overhead, little girl,
And the road like a w<?ll heated brick;
And all earthly affairs
In a terribe whirl;
Do something for somebody quil'k;
Do something for somebody quick!

most of our distinguished politicians are pretty small potatoes.
