The following article appeared in
the Lead and Zinc News, from tbe
pen of (jreo, Huston of Sandon, who
has given the question of zinc mining a great deal of attention:
''The year 1903 really did much
for the silver-lead producing districts of the Slocan and Kootenays.
Naturally, the decision to pay to
lead producers a bonus has done
much to stimulate the industry, the
direct effects of which will be
shown during the year 1904. An
other, and which promises to bo of
more lasting beuelit to some of the
largest mines in the Slocan, is the
possibility of making a marketable
ziuo product. True, the total shipments of zinc from this country were
not heavy. On the other hand, the
total tonnage shipped was not more
than a fraction of what could have
been shipped. Heavy freight rates
and the preference of mine owners
to hold their zinc ores until the installation of magnetic separating
plants would permit the profitable
disposition of the concentrates were
really the cause of limitations.
•'The total shipments from the
Slocan during the past year aggregated less than 10,000 tons, little
more than half the production of
1897, for example, and smaller than
during any later year.
"This tonnage include** the zinc
shipments. W ithout them the silver-lead tonnage of tho district
would be less than half that of 1897.
"Ou the other hand, it must be
admitted that the granting of the
lead bonus has already had a very
Injudicial result upon the silver-
lead mining interest*. Many properties which had been practically
deserted have been put iu shape for
development work or for shipping.

absorbing topic, now that the lead
producers have had their innings.
The first magnetic  separator to ue
erected during the past summer at
the Payne mine at Sandon, although'
not without many heart-rending experiences with floods and other
sources of delay. Meanwhile shipments of crude ore were being made
to the Kansas zinc smelters, where
tests showed that satisfactory results could be secured from this product. The Payne furnished the
bulk of the tonnage, its shipments
aggregating 823 tons. The Ivanhoe, which has also good zinc values in its workings near Sandon,
shipped 260 tons. Two carloads,
aggregating 45 tons, were abo
shipped from the Luoky Jim. Extensive improvements are being
made at the Payne mine and at the
first of the year there were upwards
of 1,500 tons of conceuerates awaiting treatment with the magnetic
separating plant. It is quite probable that there will be at least half
a dozen additional zinc plants erected in this country during the present year.
"Another evidence of the deep
interest taken b}' mining men is
found in recent discussions of the
-prob! em s-aud-p< >ssi bi 1 i ti es-wh i clrth e*
development of the zinc resources
involve. It will be remembered
that during the recent meeting of
certain boards of trade resolutions
were adopted calling for a government bonus for zinc production.
Mining men are not in favor of such
a movement, but do want the government tc send experts into the
field to study the situation and recommend methods of treating the
ores. It is possible that such a
movement will result favorably
during the year.
"The Slocau Star, which was the
heaviest silver-lead shipper in the
Sfocan tho past year, shipped 2,-
259 tons, being also the only silver-
lead mine in the district to pay a
dividend duiing the year. This
mine has large zinc values, which
carry from 200 to 2,000 ounces of
silver to the ton. It is probable
that a zinc reduction plant will be
installed at this point

The prospects are bright for a big

Death reached into Rossland last
Thursday and took  "Shorty" Day
to his long home.    George G. Day
was the name his parents gave him
years ago in Oregon,   but owing to
his stature'he was popularly known
as "Shorty" all over the west. Ten
years ago he  came   into Rossland
and made a fortune,   having made
$35,000 out of the Porto Rico mine
alone.    He was a typical prospector
and his money was free as air. When
the dark days cast a   shadow over
the iron caps of Rossland "Shorty"
was financially bent, but not broke.
Last summer he went with the rush
»to Jioplarran d-h ad-acq-ui red cl ahnrar-
and a knowledge of that camp that
would have brought him a fortune
next summer.    All winter he complained of  stomach   trouble,   and
while on a visit   to   Rossland last
week it became acute   and he was
taken to the  hospital.   The  next
day he threw up the option on life
and left for the land   where all are
of the   same  size.   Shorty   was a
man, a humorist and a philosopher.
Just before he died   he turned to a
friend and said; "Jack, I'm an unlucky walloper.    1   have  just got
everything going nicely, and here I
am turning   up   my   toes."    And
thus he died,   game   to   the   last.
Shorty had a hunch in his back bnt
none in his soul, and  when he sits
in with the angels he will have wings
and not horns, even if while on this
earth he occasionally blew sulphur
into the ozone and   threw wine ou
the carpet.    He was a happy friend
in camp or on the trail and many a
western man will learn with sadness

deserves to lose it. In all our experiences in hotels we have yet to

Is published once in every century, and the current number has been
on tho market about a month. It is a literary blend, compiled, written
and sold by It, T. LOWERY. Its contents are streaked with humor,
with a touch of pathos here and there. The upper levels are filled with
comedies and tragedies that have occurred in the zincy Slocan when
its trails were hot with the swift rush of new feet, and the fever of
mining camp life showed 105. Certified assays of the cent belt appear
in several chutes, and three poems with at least $100 of Mexican money
appear like diamonds in a blow-out of gold. The lower stopes are filled
with pictures that would have astonished the universe one hu mired
years ago. Thc stories by other writers have clean ore, although,

Eleventh Year
The Chicago Mining World says:
"Substantial reductions are being
made by the American Smelting &
Refining Company to the i.'ceur
d'Aiene mine owners for treating
the silver-lead ores of tbe big district. Under the old contracts the
mine owners have been paying $18
a ton freight and treatment on
most of their ore, and they have
been getting only 3J cents a pound
for the lead contents, although the
New York price ou lead in 50-ton
lots has been around 4^ cents.
"The big Coeur d'Aiene interests
have been demanding a readjustment of prices, by which they will
get 90 per cent, of the New York
quotations instead of an arbitrary
price. Lead has been advancing,
surplus stocks have been worked
off, and tbe American Smelting &
Refining company, which practically controls the market, has
withdrawn quotations temporarily.
That move is believed to be a fore-
sfcep tD a further advance. Tho
whole tone of the lead market is
bullish. With lead at 4£ cents,
which will probably prove a conservative figure, the mine owners
would receive 4.05. cents per pound
for their product,'if they get 90 per
cent of the New York quotations.
That is an advance of practically
15 per cent over their present price.
"The smelters have always made
an arbitrary reduction of 10 .per
cent from the lead contents in the
ore. The deduction is for alleged
losses in smelting. That practice
will be continued under the new
arrangements. Practically, therefore, the mine owner will receive
90 per cent of the value of 90 per
cent of the lead contents in the ore,
or 81 per cent of the gross assay
value of the lead. In the past he
has received 3| cents tor a pound
for 90 per cent, of the lead.
"Take an ore going 50 per cent,
in lead. It contains, gross, 1,000
pounds of metal, Under the old
arrangement the miner was paid 3^
cents a pound for 90 per cent, of it,
or 900 pounds, which gives ,831.50.
Under the ^e^jmi^gemei^if-l§§4
"~commands~$| eentsTnthe New York
market the mine owner will be paid
still, for only 900 pounds, or 90 per j the English Court of Chancery there

rate of 4.05 cents a pound, which is
90 per cent, of the New York price.
That will give him $36.45 for his
"There has also begn a readjustment of freight^ rates! Last year
ores carrying gross values less than
§50 paid freight of eight dollars a.
ton; ore running from §50 to $65
paid ten dollars a ton, and ore valued at more than $65 paid $12 a
ton. Under a new adjustment announced by the railways a few days
ago ore carrying not more than„§60
a ton will take an eight dollar
freight rate. That classilication in-
cludes most of the ore shipped from
the Coeur d'Alenes, so that there-
suit is a practical cut of two dollars
a ton in freight rates.
"The miners are not asking a
lower smelting rate, and it will remain at eight dollars a ton. With
the cut in freights, however, and
the increased price for lead which is
demanded, the miners will actually
receive $6.95 a ton more for their
50 jer cent, lead shipments."
Mrs. Peter Morgan, a well known
elderly lady of Peterboro', is  the
heir to four million dollars can she
but prove her claim. Mrs. Morgan's
maiden name was Anne Mompesson
Porteous,   and   her   grandfather's
uncle was George, Mompesson, an
Englishman by  nationality, but of
French descent,   tracing his ancestors to the Norman invaders.    Mr.
Morgan's    grandfather,    Captain
Mompesson, waa with Wolfe at the
capture of Quebec   in   1759,   and
when in that city  fell in love with
a certain Louise Melvin, whom he
later married, and whose daughter
was Mrs. Morgan's mother.   Thirty
years ago Mrs. Morgan read in The
London Illustrated   News that an
immense fortune was awaiting the
Mompesson   family.     Her son-in-
law, Mr. Walter Strickland, looked
into the matter, but  finally threw
it up.   A few  months  ago   Mrs.
Morgan's son, Walter   Morgan, of
the Merchants'Bank, Montreal, be^
gan the upheaval   of the affair,
which he found to be   correct.    In
Atchison Globe: Mrs. Mae Law-
son of Hortno bas   been promoted
High Priestess of the Aryan school
of Occultism.    It is said Mrs. Law-
son "possesses both the natural and
acquired powers of  psychic,illumination and   concentration; that is,
the power to invoke aid to come into
vibration or oneness with the ether
or other and more subtle element of
the supra-essential emanation of the
Divine one, and has actually held
personal    telepic    communi ation
with the Yoghis in India."    Know
what it is?   We don't. The Hortno
Headlight goes on to relate that at
a picnic once, when   it   was found
that the spoons   had   been left behind, the  "Professor"  put her occult powers to work,   and in a few
minutes dug the  spoons up out of
the ground at her feet.    There's a
fairy story for the fools to go crazy
over.    Will they   believe  it?   Of
course they will; they accept worse
rubbish every day.

The present price is over a quarter
of a cent a pound more than the
average price for the year 1903.
Officers of the American Smelting
and Kefining company say the advances have been due to an improvement in the demand. The policy of
the company, it is stated, is to let
the prices be governed by the law
of supply and demand.

Diamond drill work in the El Po-
tasimine, Santa Eulalia-district,
Mexico, has proven an orebody of
richness at great depth. This is
regarded as the greatest lead-silver
mine of the country today, and had
until recently been developed to a
depth of 1,250 feet. The drill was
sent down 1,000 feet further from
the bottom qf this shaft, and is said
to have been in ore of good grade
during the progress of this exploratory work.
C. W. Whitely, of the Salt Lake
department of the American Smelting & Refining Company, has been
called east on a mission which is
strongly, and seemingly with authority, intimated to be completing
plans for construction of a new
smelting plant in the Utah Valley
district. The capacity of this copper plant is forecasted as probably
1,500 tons per day, and it is thought
the location will be near the $1,500,-
000 plant that was recently completed.
The eight-hour law that has been
declared constitutional in Nevada
applies to mine workers and employees in reduction plants. The
measure was fi^st presented four
years ago, when it was defeated,
but at the following sessiou of the
legislature there was scarcely a dissenting vote, as both parties had
been pledged to the measure at tbe
primaries. This is said to have the
effect of putting Nevada on an eight-
hour basis with regard to mineral
development and reduction.

The holdings of the  Fair estate,
of California, in the Selby smi Iter,
of San  Francisco,   amounting to a
twelfth interest,   have  been taken
over by tbe Hercules   mine, of the
Coeur d'Alenes, for a consideration
of about $200,000.    The   purchase
is attributed to   the   fact that the
Hercules has experienced difficulty
of late in marketing ores, it having
850 tons per month for this method
of reduction.    As   a   result of the
purchase, it is   rumored   that   Ed
Boyce, once president   of the Western   Federation  of   Miners,   is a
silent director of the Selby com
pany, which was the reason he withdrew from the board of directors of
the Miners.    The   Hercules  is regarded as one of the richest properties of the Coeur d'Alenes,    Itslow

shipping being handled.    Shipping

It's the vote and not the strike
that will free labor from being ruled
by the capitalists.
A million Socialist votes iu this
country will do the working class
more good, will command more respect from their masters, than a hundred big strikes. It doesn't cost
idleness and starvation to vote like
it does to strike.
The working class seem determined to elect men to ollice who
will be against them in every contest for better conditions of life.
They don't know the power of their
ballots—and give it to their master
at every election.
Cnpitalists control the nation and
all laws are made in tho interest of
the capitalist class. That is logical
and nothing else conld bo expected.
When the working class gets wise
enough and elects itself to office the
government will make all laws in
the interest of the working class.
That will he logical also. The working class are the great majority.
Do you know any good reason why
the laws should not be made in the
interest of the majority?
