It is reported that A. W. McCune
has sold his interests in Peru and
will return to the Slocan and open
up the Mountain Chief, near New
Denver. Mci.une should feel
warmly towards the Slocan for he
made nearly a million out of the
Payne.
The delay in paying the" lead
bounty is irritating to Slocan mine-
owners who are short of money for
development work. You cannot
cut the red tape away from the
govern ment. It has to be u n won nd
by a lot of officials with wax on
their hands.
At a recent auction sale of Ontario timber limits Peter Ryan made

be open at all times to the inspection of a supervising officer. The
cost of such supervision is to be
paid by the claimants and will be
deducted pro rata from the bounty
according to the quantity smelted
during the fiscal year.
AKTKR   THE   C.   P.   R.
It looks as if the Silver-Lead
Mining Association isgetting down
to business. The late drop in
freight rates on zinc is one result of
the Association's action, and now
an interesting fight is on between
the association and the C. P. R., in
which the miner's association is trying to force the railway to cut off
the increase in rates on lead. The
contention made by the association
is that the railway acted in bad faith
when it increased the rates on lead.
The matter has been taken
before the railway  commission   at

Victoria has a new weekly paper

one of the most finished writers of

an enemy was within earshot.
It is stated that work will shortly
be resumed on the Mollie Gibson
mine whioh was closed down a year
since by a snowslide in which several
lives were lost, and all mine buildings demolished. There is plenty
of ore in Might in the mine on the
lirst, second, third and fourth
levels.
The mine owners of tho Slocan
Hhould pool their zinc product, and
ship to Europe where they can get
returns for everything that is in the
ore. Tho annoyance of waiting so
long for payment can be overcome
by making an arrangement with
some bank to pay a ca*h percentage upon the value of the ore.

Physical Culture is the name of
a magazine published in New York.
Ttris~de voted~tO"-teachi ng~m en—women and children   how to live natural, healthy lives,  and is of more
real value than a   million so-called
religious journals.   Sin   and crime
are principally caused   by   ruined
nerves and weak stomachs.    Physical Culture points the way to a higher
life by telling us how to be strong
and healthy.    It is an opponent of
medical superstition, and an enemy
of the drug and   patent   medicine
habits.    It opposes   the fad of cutting people to pieces to cure the result of wrong living and is constantly at war with the methods of
the stupid doctors and surgeons of
the day.    Its aim is   to   better the
human race,  and it fights no race,
flag, creed or color.   There   is   no
better or nobler magazine published
in this world,   and   thousands  of
readers in Canada know that we are
speaking the truth, and yet the stupid or designing officials in the post-
office  at Ottawa  have  prohibited
it the use of the mails in   Canada
thus holding this great   Dominion
up to the ridicule of all right thinking people, and causing liberty-loving Canadians to blush with shame.
The action of these narrow-minded,
bigoted and ignorant officials is an
insult to freedom, and a bar to the
progress of this great country.   If
such act* are permitted to pass unnoticed Canada   will ere   long be
upon a par with Russia.    For the
glory of tho land of our birth wo demand that this matter be investigated, and we call upon the press to
aid uh in righting tho injustice that
has been done one of tin; most useful  and beneficial publications in
America.
We will now tell why Physical
Culture waa shut out of the mails.
Last fall a communication reflecting upon the methods of Toronto
and Ontario physicians was published. No names wero given but
initials were used. Tho can must
hftve fitted a lot of them
from the result. The correspondent tells of astern, blue-blooded old
doctor who is on the board of medical examiners in Ontario, and has
a son. The son is shy on brain*
but he goes to college. Tho father
examines him, and although he cannot answer somo of the simplest
questions of anatomy, thin wonderful Mm \tMm\al with the highest.
honor*, and now experiments upon |
the human race under the protection of a diploma and an aristocratic
name.
He tells of a society doctor who
admits that the teachings of Physical Culture are allright, but he dare
not practice them as his patients
would all get well and his bank account would die of starvation.
He then tells of two doctors, one
a professor in a university, delivering a woman of a baby wheu they
were both drunk.
The last paragraph tells of a doctor who runs a sanitarium for women, and looks like Satan. His
constant advice w> young women for
nearly all complaints is to have
their ovaries cut out. His advice
universally followed would be a sad
blow to the commands of Teddy
Koosevelt, and the. Bible.
If the statements quoted are true
Physical Culture merits the applause of all who have the welfare
of the people close "to,their hearts.
If not true no one interested would
have noticed them, for it is only
when you throw a rock out into the
dark and hit a mangy dog that you
hear a bark. The editor of Physical Culture is ever ready to correct
any false statement that appears in
his journal. He wishes to do no
man an injustice, and to shut   his
molested. If the people of Canada
wish to be slaves to medical superstition and the patent medicine
fakirs they will permit the postal
outrage in question to live. If not
they will demand its immediate
suspension along with the slave to
influence who ordered the semaphore turned against one of the
grandest pu )lications this side of
heaven.
are plain, ordinary mining companies more desirable for the investor. The Champion Eeef mine,
Kolar district, India, has paid in
ten years better than 100 per cent
annually on a capital stock of $1,-
300,000. No year of the ten have
its dividends fallen below 67 per
cent, and one year, the last fiscal
period, they were 165 per cent.
Has the industrial world many such
examples as this? Yet this is a
practically obscure, unknown mining concern.
Tailings are that portion of the
ore that remains after amalgamation. A profitable industry has of
recent years been the purchasing of
vast piles of tailiugs that have been
accumulating at producing gold
mines for years, and treating these
by the cyanide process.

If the teachings of Physical Culture

anything. By suggestion, if sufficiently intelligent he can direct
patients how to correct wrong habits of mind and body and become
well, but it is against his monetary
interest. His graft would quickly
die if all became wise. The doctor

with a touch of pathos hero 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 8100 of Mexican money
appear like diamonds iu a blow-out of gold. The lower stopes are filled
with picture* tlmt would have astonished the universe one hundred

Dickens did not write any of them. This grand and lurid publication

Address Eleventh Year
THE LEDGE, NEW DENVER, B.C., JANUARY 28, 1904.
ZINC   AND   LEAD    PRODUCTION.
The year just closed has doubtless been the most profitable for the
zinc-lead fields of Jopliu, Missouri,
than any for the past 40 years, says
the Chicago Mining World.    While
the output of  zinc   ore   was  the
smallest of any year since 1898, aud
the lead output the   smallest since
1899, the average price of both ores,
which is the true  index   to profits
earned, has beaten all previous re
cords, except the  average price of
zinc during the boom year of 1899.
Tae causes for the   curtailment of
production have been well defined
and  clearly   understood.    Daring
February and March the coal shortage compelled a suspension of operations at   numerous  mill   plants,
while unusually heavy rains during
April and May greatly   interfered
with the operations and output of
hand-jig plants,  altogether resulting in a decrease below the average
output of from 10,000 to 12,000 tons
of zinc.    This shortage of   output
was not overcome during the summer months, but was   still further
increased by thc general shut-down
of one   week   during October and
three weeks in   November and December, so that the total decrease
in production for the year, as compared with 1902,   amounted to 27,-
#12 tons of zinc and 3,178   tons of
lead.   The value of the ziuc output
of 234,732 tons during the past year
was $7,914,665, as against $7,973,-
769 in 1902, a decrease of $59,104,
thus showing an   average   price of
$33.72 per ton during the past year,
as against an average of $30.33 per
ton in 1902, $24.21 per ton in 1901,
and $26.50 per ton  in  1900.    The
23,338 tons of lead produced in 1903
sold for $1,537,920, as against the
total of $1,457,121 received for the
larger output in   1902, thus show-
iug an increase   in   value over the
preceding year of $80,699, and an
average price for the 1903 output of
$54.45 per ton, as against an average price of $46.10 per ton in 1902,
45.99 per ton iu   1901,   and 48.32
per ton iu 1900, the total increase
in the value of   both   ores  during
—1903iM^~82l7590Tfve*™
of 1902, notwithstanding a decrease
of 31,000 tous in the output of both
ores.
MIGHT   BK   WORSE.
An attempt has been made by the
Associated Boards   of Trade of the
Interior to estimate the value of the
mineral produced from the mining
districts of South   Kootenay   and
Yale during the past  year.    The
figures, which should be very   approximately accurate, are   as   follows:—Gold 204,147 ounces, value
$4,219,718.49;     silver    3.471,421
ounces, value$1,839,953.13; copper
24,866,977 pounds, value $3,392,-
174 93;  lead   10,168  tous,   value
$489,792.50, or a total   value $9,-
881,629.10.   Tonnage is given as 1,-
034,830 tons, of which 42,867 tons
was shipped   to   the   Hall   mines
smelter, 330,000 tons to the Granby
smelter, 170,000 tons to the British
Columbia Copper Company's smelter, 134,217 tons to the Montreal &
Boston Copper Company's smelter,
168,000 tons to the Canadian Smelting Works, 186,951  to the North-
port smelter  and   2,795   tons   to
smelters in the United States.    Assuming the accuracy of these computations, the value of mineral and
coal production from   British Columbia in 1903 should   be   in   the
neighborhood of $20,000,000, and
the tonnage output from the metalliferous mines   alone  considerably
over a million tons.    The 1903 re
turns from the Crow's   Nest   Pass
colleries are uow available and disclose a very   gratifying  state   of
affairs.    Coal produced during the
year amounted   to 652,000   tons,
166,000 tons of coke   having   also
beeu    manufactured   during   this
period.    Production from the collieries as follows:—Coal Creek, 240,-
000 tons;   Michel,   262,000   tons;
Morrisey, 150,000 tons;  the   coke
ovens at Fernie producing  96,000
tons and those   at   Michel   70,000
tons.   Coal-mining production from
the Crow's nest began in 1898, production for that year being   under
9,000 tons of coal   and rather over
350 tons of coke.l  In 1902 the output had increased to 442,049   tons
of coal and 121,000 tons of  coke,
while as has been shown an advance
on the last returns of about 50 per
Ttretitr^a-oaMe'ii^
production in  1903.    The result is
all the more  gratifying in view of
the suspension of coal-mining oper
ations in the spring of the year consequent upon a labor strike lasting
for seven weeks. Labor conditions
being uow settled and stable and
the efficiency aud equipment of the
mines greatly improved, activity in
1904 should be even more pronounced, and a production this year
of a million tons of coal is considered not at all improbable. During
1903 a sum aggregating two million
of dollars was paid out in wages
aud for supplies, while a further expenditure of approximately one
million dollars was spent on improvements and in mine development.

WAS   WORTH   SEEING.
Grover Cleveland, during his
first term as President, stopped en
route one afternoon at Weldon, N.
C, and was greeted by a large
crowd of natives on the platform of
the little station. A wiry old chap,
with 'backwoods'' written all over
him, forced his way through the
crowd to Cleveland's side and asked:
"Be you the president?"
"I am, sir," was the polite answer, and Cleveland's hand was
streched out in greeting.
The old fellow grasped it, shook
it like a pump handle for a half-
minute, and then said:
"I' ve voted for many a President
in my time, but never afore seed
one
ways. "I was very foolish and
vain," she said; "worldly pleasures,
and especially the fashions were
my only thought. I was fond of
silks, satins, jewelry, ribbons and
laces. But, my friends, I found
they were dragging me down to perdition, so I gave them all to my
sister!"

known that an extraordinary accident attended the electric storm of
last Sunday night, in the Scottish
Chief mine, Park City. Jjimes Ma-
lone and Harvey Roberts, miners,
were at work 500 feet underground.
At the height of the storm a thun-

track at the mouth of the tunnel
and followed the rails into the
depths of the mine. Malone and
Roberts were knocked down aud
badly burned. They had no idea of
what had occured and thought that
an explosion had taken place. They
managed to make their way to the
mouth of the mine and found snow
falling, accompanied by lightning
and thunder.

Ther° are 18 known oil fields in
Wyoming, and they present a great
variety of product, varying from the

Free milling gold ores are such
ores that carry their gold particles
in a state wherein when liberated
from tho enclosing rock, the gold
readily alloys with mercury or
quicksilver. Refractory ores are
those ores whose gold contents refuse to alloy with mercury in the
mortar or on the plates. Ores containing sulphides, tellurides, ar*cn-i
ides, bismuth, etc., are refractory!
ores.
At the Canadian Club the other
day Mr. Foster said that he thought
the days of race and creed cries
in Canada were past. He may

World making an issue of the defeat of a Roman Catholic ior an oflice
in a Lilx»ral organization, or ob-
pen*es The Hamilton Spectator attributing the defeat of a municipal
candidate of that persuasion to the
fact that the "Grita are hostile to
the Catholics."
