Thomas .loues, representing the Lan-
you Zinc Co., of lola, Kas., spent some
days in the Slocan last weak, looking
up zinc ores for his company, with a
view to contracting for same and ascertaining what amount could be counted
on to supply a zinc smelter that his people were contemplating building on the
coast. While en route here Mr. .Jones
was met by Mr. Brown, ore !buyer;,for
i the Trail smelter, who vouchsafed the
 j information that there was no zinc ore
bio to be had in the  Slocan,   and  further
im\ that the  Trait   people  were keeping

The local conservatives got together
hurriedly one evening last week and
selected Ed Shannon, T. H Hoben and
Murdock McLean delegates to the convention held at Revelstoke. There
was honor in the selection—it, was in
paying their own expenses thither and
while there. But that is nothing to an
old-line conservative, especially when
he lias the privilege of standing up
beside the big guns 3f the party and
having his picture taken oh tlie
ground, and the delegates returned
feeling richly repaid for making the trip,
and fairly bubbling over with enthusiasm.
About 70 delegates were present and
the convention was one of the most harmonious that the party has held in the
Ptoviuce. Chas. Wilson was re-elected
leader, and John Houston was chosen
president of the provincial association,
with Green of Kaslo, Robinson of Kamloops, He-id of New Westminister, Seymour of Vancouver, and Russell of Victoria, members of the executive. Frank
S. Barnard was re-elected treasurer,
and the election of secretary was deferred. Revelstoke was named as the
place for holding the next convention

ager of the War Eagle mine, of
Rossland, dealt with "The Influence of Government on Mining,''
his paper being received with unusual interest. After hearing the
paper the Institute decided to frame
a protest to be forwarded to the
government against the assessment
After dealing in a general way
with the effect* of unwise legislation upon the mining industry in
the province, and contrasting the
treatment accorded it by the B. C.
legislature with that of other mineral producing countries, Mr. Kir-
by's paper concludes:
"It is not of interest here to go
into details about the oppressive
and threatening legislation which
in British Columbia has so characterised the dealings of the state
with its chief Industry. What is
of interest is the spectacle, unknown
elt-cwhcre in the dominion or in the
empire, and probably unparalleled
in llie world, of u Milling industry
trying to exist under a burden of
taxation which amounts to between
20 and :10 per cent of it* gross receipts.
"ThegrosH products of British
Columbia in 111(11, as neirly as
tliey are indicated by statistics,
were about ft27,OOO,0O<i, distributed
as follows:
the most part untouched on account
of the so-called 2 per cent, tax on
the gross output of mines. This
tax is only one item in the total
mentioned above, but it has the peculiar effect of exacting an increasing proportion of the net profits
when applied to the lower grades
of ore. For instance, on the milling grades of Rossland it will seize
anywhere from 10 to 20 per cent,
of the net profit.
"The present state of affairs is instructive not only to the mining
profession,   showing   how unwise
government can injure mining, but
also to students of economics, presenting an  extreme  case  of tho
blighting effect of taxation  upon
industry.   To tho student the phenomenon is marked by the same
familiar symptoms which always
accompany evils caused by acts of
political organism.     There is the
same curious indifference and refusal to see facts as they are,  the
I same tendency to ascribe the evils
I to every cause but the right one.
| There is the usual effort to conceal
i the truth from the outside world
'and to condemn  those  who boldly
ami dearly call for reform.   There
is the same old anxiety, not to correct the evil but to Und excuse for
evading action.
goose which lays the golden egg,
and the bankruptcy of the state inevitably follows.
"The simple principles of modern
scientific taxation are well understood, in theory, if not in practice,
the world has progressed since |
Colbert, the famous minister of
France, summarized government
finance as "the art of plucking the
goose wit!) the least amount of
squealing." In the light of modern knowledge taxes may be so laid
that industry is not only uninjured
but is on the contrary actually benefited by them. In this 20th century there is no excuse for excessive taxation or mediaeval methods.
"The state may, if it will, not
only relieve "the mother of industry" from all its burdens, but it
may in a less important way encourage aud aid it by attending to!
those matters which are beyond)

of today, we mining men, looking
far beyond the present, have a clear
view of the future grandeur of the
commonwealth of British Columbia.
We know its wonderful natural resources, the character and energy
of its people. We know that civilization cannot be held back.
Some day there will bo good government, and with this one requisite supplied will appear au era of
prosperity beyond the wildest
hopes. Whether itt* arrival will
find us here or laboring in other
parts of the world we neither know
or care. We only know our present duty, which is to maintain a
united front to the evils before us,
and steadily press the fight for reform."       	
Srnvlbln View of It.
as laid down in the platform adopted in
October, 1899, is hereby reaffirmed.
That to encourage the mining industry the taxation of metalliferous mines
should be on a basis of percentage of
net profits
That the government ownership of
telephone systems should be brought
about as a first step in the acquisition of
public utilities
That a portion of every coal area
hereafter to be disposed of should be
reserved from osale or lease, so that
state owned mines may be easily possible if their opeiation becomes necessary or advisable
'That in pulp land leases provision
should be made for re foresting, and
that steps should be taken tor the general preservation of forests by guarding against wasteful destruction of timber.
That the legislature and the government of the province should persevere
in their efforts to secure the exclusion
of Asiatic labor
That the matter of better terms in the
way of subsidies and appropriations for
the province should be vigorously
pressed upon the dominion government.
That the silver lead industries of the
province_be fo8tered.,aud_encouraged-
by the imposition of increased customs
duties on lead products imported into
Canada, and that the conservative member" of the dominion bous* be urged to
support any motion introdiced for such
That as industrial disputes almost invariably result iu great low and injury
both to the parties directly concerned
and to the public, legislation should be
pressed to provide means lor an amicable adjustment of such disputes between employers and employees.

fl Gold 6ulch maiden
The excursion season was at its
height, and the Alaska liner Senator, was crowded. There were
tourist parties from all over the-
country ; gold seekers of all sorts
and conditions on their way to the
ice fields ; Nome government officials on their regular rounds of inspection ; companies of school
teachers eager to crowd the trip
into their short vacation; the inevitable bridal couples, and several
family parties ; but the girl from
Gold Gulch was traveling alone.
The first day out was so rough
that all tbe women kept quietly
out of sight—all but the girl from
Gold Gulch, who confided to the
captain that the motion of the ship
was not unlike that of a bucking
horse, and that she rather liked it.
So, crushing her cap down over
her eyes,' and buttoning her raglan
close up to her chin, she strode
resolutely up on deck to find herself monarch of all she surveyed.
By the end of the day she had
accepted every possible courtesy
from every man on board, and was
beginning to think that she saw
her way clear to a pleasant passage. But when, the next day,
the other women, white-faced and
miserable, began to straggle upward, the wild-rose color, and the
ability of this girl to walk the
decks in slippery weather, became
to them a personal affront, for seasickness is not conducive to the
practice of Christian charity. So
every day thereafter the little group
that formed itself into an exclusive
for'ard circle, made common cause
in discussing the impropriety of
this young girl's traveling without
Miss Mamie McGinnis, of Gold
Gulch, never joined that group.
Not that she knew, or would have
cared if she had, that she was the
target of their criticism. She always found herself the center of
another group on the opposite side,
where she held full sway, or promenaded the decks with some equally
good sailor till the others had gone
below, following always her own
sweet will, and never suspecting
she had not the benediction of the
elect. It was Mrs. Whitewall-
by Mies McGinnis' escapades. She,
with her three florid, raw-boned
daughters, had come to America
to visit her son, Algie, on his cattle ranch, and now with Algie
himself, more florid and raw-boned
than all four of the others put together, she was making a flying
trip to Alaska to see her youngest
son Winston.
One evening as they caucused on
the probability of her being an actress or chorus-girl on her way to
join her troupe, two figures swayed
into the arc of light emitted from
the cabin. The wind-blown hair
ot the girl, and the frills about her
shoulders, left no doubt as to her
identity, for her gownn were also a
subject of disapproval among the
elect, but the tall, black figure behind her was lost in the shadow.
A dozen pairs of eyes strained
eagerly to see who it might lie,
their owners conjecturing and commenting on what new freak of Indiscretion rihe waa up to. Then,
an if in answer to the curious gaze
rivited upon thein, the figures
turned and came to a stand-xMll
under the light.
The man's dgar had evidently
gone out, for with a gay little laugh
the girl took bis proffeied match,
reached out her arm, steadied her-
m>lf agaiimt bis ready idiouldcr an if
he had been a unwt, Then there
wax a midden hwihIi of frills, the
gleam of a tdioe buckle—and mono-
thing more—and the girl had struck
a united, man*faction, on the sole
of her Unit, and wa* holding the
tiny flame to his cigar.
At thin the KngliHliwoiunn turned
with a horrified countenance to
point h moral to Algie, who had
not Keemed to (Unapprove of thin

but Algie bfid ulijijted hi* !eft*h atid

tUieftfthf kiuttch nhowed Algif'si

felt it mtt to 'withdraw. Then

family, there to call down curee*

reported to the company if he did
not put the girl in  imn« to *nxe
poor Algie, .or stop the ship and
put her off, and the clouds of disapproval from the rest of tho elect
gathered so thickly that the very
air seemed charged with explosives.
Even the girl at last began to realize that she was not entirely
popular with this faction ; she had
not taken much notice of the women heretofore, and their disapproving glances had escaped her!
When the full force of their attitude struck her, she turned abruptly to Algie with : '• Is your mother
worried about something ?"
"Aw, she's a bit chafed about
somethin' she saw last night, you
know," he explained, looking somewhat browbeaten himself.
"And your sisters, too," she
continued, cheerfully, "they look
as if they had beeu pulling out
somebody's hair. Do they get that
way often?"
•'Ob, those girls are waxy," he
blurted, relieved at being able to
give vent to his feelings; "they're
always waxy."
" Whar. a lovely lot they must
be," remarked the girl staring at
them deliberately, and letting them
see they were being discussed by
their brother and herself. "They
don't seem to be having any fun at
all," she added, wondering why
they didn't scrape up au acquaintance with the half dozen university students on board.''
But here, to their consternation,
they saw Algie's mother bearing
down upon them with a look of fell
determination in her narrow, gray
"Algie, my dear, go and talk
with your sisters a bit while I have
a few words with this—ah— this—"
"Miss McGinnis," Algie supplied, dodging his mother's look
and retreating ungallantly, leaving
the girl alone on the field.
"Ah, yes, to be sure, Miss McGinnis," she repeated after him,
looking straight over the girl's
head and taking Algie's chair,
which, considering its change of
occupants, was drawn unpleasantly
"You are a most ill-advised
young person," the woman began
wasting no time on preliminaries,
tell you so. Do you know it is
highly improper for a girl of your
age to be traveling about alone
without a chaperon e ?"
" Nope," the girl's rosy lips
lisped, indifferently. " You never
hear of such things iu Gold Gulch.''
" Can it be that there is no attempt to preserve decorum of any
kind in these western wilds?"
asked Mrs. Warde, incredulously.
"Yep, course," answered Miss
McGinnis indignantly. " If things
go wrong, much, somelxidy gets
shot.   See?"
"Then, for your own good,"
the woman continued, finding the
Gold Gulch code inadequate to the
occasion, and still looking over the
girl's head, "I shall tell you that
everyone on board is horrified by
tbe way you are carrying on, and
the rest of the voyage you in list
either mend your ways or stay below, or—"
" Or what?'- the girl interrupted,
resting her eyes calmly on the
heated face of the older woman
with a look of deep interest.
"Or let Algie alone," continued
his mother, surprised off her dig*
nity by the girl's cool question.
"Oh. I'm not doing a thing to
Algie," the girl answered innocently. And it was owing to the
matron's ignorance of American
colloqutftlifltn that she was made no
wiwv by thin frank confession.
"It would do you uo good to try
to win hit* enteem, you know, for
it Ik arranged that he Ih to marry
hi* cousin in Kngland."
" I did not try to win bluet-teem," the girl interrupted hotly.
" llejUHt up and—"
" He what?" the Britiah matron
nlutoHt screamed.
" He juM up aud naid 'liow-dv-

and tindewtood her dpher.
The elect gathered at the rati
as they reached the deck and
waited apprehensively to see what
the outcome would be. The girl's
skirmishing, they prophesied,
would have to go down before the
heavy raking fire of the English
woman's wrath, and they watched
her approach with a feeling akin to
pity. They were certainly not prepared to see her walk up to Mrs.
Whitewall-Warde and say .cooly :
" Will you walk a little with me ?
I have something to say to you."
And neither was Mrs. Warde
herself prepared to hear the girl
say with a womanly dignity quite
new to her : "I think it only fair
to explain to you, Mrs. Warde,
before this feeling goes any farther,
that I am going to be married as
soon as tbe, steamer lauds, so your
mind will bo relieved of any unjust
suspicion that I have been flirting
with your son."
" Oh !" The woman's gasp of relief came like an explosion. "So
you are going Ui be married as
soon as we land," she asked, as
soon as she could command herself
to say anything. " Well, as you
have no one to look after you, it is
quite the best thing you could do.
I hope he is a good young man.
You must let me be present." She
was determined to see this was no
ruse on the part of the girl to make
her relax her vigilance.
"Oh, will you, really?" asked
girl eagerly, "will you promise to
come? I have no parents you
know, and I should be grateful."
This, with a slight break in her
voice that could be attributed to
nothing but sadness.
During tbe remainder of the voyage the prophesy an'eht the lion and
the lamb was fulfilled. Mrs. Warde
seemed to look upon the girl as
a sort of deliverer, and she was
taken to the bosom of the elect as a
sort of protegee of their ringleader. For all of which the girl
showed her gratitude by having
her trunks brought up and her
trousseau exploited for Mrs.
Warde's approval.
"But are they not much too
elaborate for the place you are
going?" she ventured.
" Yep," the girl answered innocently, "but they were made for
the road. You see I was going
out with the Gaiety Company to do
soubrette parts this season before
"Oh, it is true, then, you are an
actress ?'' said Mrs. Warde, with a
horrified gasp.
" Nope, not now," Miss McGinnis explained, shifting her quid of
gum gracefully into her cheek.
"I'm going to jump my contract,
and Mr.— ahem I he is going to
square it up with the old man."
She always avoided the name of
her fiance, which the elect thought
a commendable show of reticence.
The girl seemed to grow a little
nervous as the Senator neared port
and to avoid the for'ard circle.
"You will not fail to come to my
wedding, will you?" she again
pleaded earnestly.
"No," answered Mrs. Warde,
thankful this disagreeable business
was so soon to bo taken off her
hands, and deeply mortified that
circumstances had connected her
with the affairs of this little player-
person. " You may depend upon
me as I have promised." Then,
with a flush of pity for this lone
little thing, she added : "And I
will give you my blessing." This
last remark wa« made oh if she
were alniut to bestow upon her the
order of the Garter.
" Is your young man going to
meet yon V" asked one of the elect,
thinking the spectacle of a red-
shirted miner jumping up and
down and waving his bat in the
nil would bc diverting.
" Not on your life," the girl
answered with dignity, "but he'll
lie at the hotel wTien we get there
all right."
And although there was uot even
n proxy to meet her at the dock,
the girl's faith iu hi* pit-newe did
not waver. " He'll be then'," she
assured them, and iwkcd a favored

L. Quetieau, who was with the United
States Geological survey in the vyork
arotind Nome, has an interesting article
on the oold sands of that place apuear-
iii;! in thc last issue of the Engineering'
Magazine. He expounds interesting
theories how the placer deposits along
the beach are made. He says the told
is hrougld down in tV.e alluvial movement, ami the action of the streams,and
waves establish a separating system,
wherehy rich deposits of the 'yellow
metal and heavier material are made
at particular points. In 1898 the product of gold from Nome was $10,000; in
1899, ?2,'000,000, of which 8900,000 was
from the. beach, and in 1900, 85,125,000,
of which 81,250,000 was from the beach.
Much costly litigation has handicapped
work of late, but now this cloud seem'*
to have been removed, and full production is expec ed again.
