It U ft-uimate.1 that the men nf Great
Britain spend _*2?A<w*> a year on till*
Stock sucker8 in the city of Montreal
are supposed to have lost 118,000,000 on
British Columbia mining; stocks and
now they are sore on B. C. mines bf all
kinds. These people probably lost the
eighteen million all right enough, but
they did not lose it in British Columbia
mines. It was in Montreal and Toronto
promoters' offices that they lost, their
money, and their argument that mining
don't pay is absolutely without foundation. Take the Payne, for instance.
Since the first drill was struck on the
job that property has paid, yet Montreal
people have lost money in Payne stock.
If the Payne had not befen stocked at
all, but had remained in possession of
the original locators, Carpenter and
Seaton, these worthies would have made
over $2,000,000 profit out, of the ore
shipped. The difference between the
cost of extracting the ore and the
amount realized on the sale of the ore
must be the profit of mining. If it
costs more to take the ore out of the
ground than the ore is worth, then
raining does not pay. If it costs less
the difference is profit. The fact that a
property is stocked for more than it is
worth and that people lose money on
the decline of the stock value can not
be taken as an evidence that mining
does not pay. The Payne was stocked
shares were sold as high &b $l.62_, making the stock valuation nearly $5 000,*
000. No mine in British Columbia has
$5,000,000 worth of ore in sight, and as
a matter of fact the Payne promoters
only claimed to have a million and a
half in sight at the time the stock was
placed on the market. As a gutted
stope has no value and the value of an
undeveloped ledge is entirely problematical, the ore blocked out is the only
basis on which a mine can be valued,
If we accept this, in the case of the
Payne Montreal speculators, when they
took Payne stock at a five million valuation, absorbed 18,500,000 water on a
million and a half mine. When the
stock depreciated the Montreal people
sot up a howl that they had lost money
in mining, yet the Payne has been shipping nearly as much ore as all the
other Slocan mines together, and the
profit on the operation of the property
must have been immense. The loss
has not been in mining, but In stock.—
Sandon Pay streak.
The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining
divisions for the year 1000 was, approximately, 86,000 tone. Since January 1
to May 18, 1001, the shipments have
been as follows:

The welcome news comes from Ottawa that the Dominion government has
granted a bonus of $5 a ton on all
lead bullion refined in Canada to the
limit of$100,000 perannum. Thebonus
will be given in the same manner as
the bonus which fosters the iron industry of Eastern Canada, and will cover a
period of several years, gradually diminishing until it is wiped out altogether. The granting of thebonus will
not have any startling affect upon the
mining industry in the Kootenay at
once, but it will restore confidence in
the country and induce a greater expenditure of capital in opening up new
properties and developing on a larger
scale those that are already shippers.
But the result later will be far reaching
aud of the greatest importance to this
country. The conditions of the silver-
leitd industry are different-to-what-pre-
vailed in the iron industry in Eastern
Canada prior to the granting of the iron
bonus, and the development of this section as a result of the lead bonus may
not be so rapid or extensive as was the
development of the Iron section, but the
erection of smelters and refineries for
ihe home treatment of our ores will
give to the industry an impetus that it
never had before. The country will advance on a more substantial basis, and
the industry that has so long been held
in check wiil take the position of importance that it deserves.
R. C. Campbell-Johnston holds views
of his own upon the lead problem of the
Slocan and the matter ot its satisfactory
solution. He does not agree with the
advocates of a government bounty upon
refinery product that tbe solution ts to
be reached by this method.but contends
that any such system is fallacious and
of very questionable benefit. Mr.
Csmpbell-Jobnston realties of course
that his views may not be popular, but
this does uot restrain him from venti
latlngthetn. In bis opinion, says tho
Nelson Trlbume, the stiver-lead mining
industry ia suffering from tho domination of the United States smelter and
lead trust, but It does not suffer so much
from this cause as from s starvation of
capital necessary to Its economical
working. In some cases this is the result of insufficient working capital, and
In others It Is due to distributing too
much of the earnings in dividends and
allowing nothing for development account) but in either event ths reault is
tho same. It means excessive milklnga
of the Industry In mining, In transpor
tatlon.in smelting, and ultimately In
refining, which put a tax upon the Industry very few mines csn stand. That
the managers ol the trust understood
tho crippled condition of the silver-lead
mining Industry of Kootenay is t*howi.
by their action In refusing to purchase
«llver*lead ore. They appreciate the
{.ut U...I al they have lo do tit (.top production in t» refust: to purchase, and
they therefor* have a smaller output to
t«k<» ran' of. Thin in manifestly a much
cheaper way of controlling Utt«»itiuii<>ti
than would ln> the outright purchase of
the mines, but it is just as effective and
must remain so until ttuificient money
is lounO tor titeu propt-r working
In ths opinion of Mr. Campbell-John*
iton the scheme of lii« United Status
(sad snd smelter trust is much larger
than <fi»n»»T*Hv d»*«nHbi-rt In hia nnln-
ion It does not end with the control ol
the silver production of the world, bnt
sims at the control of :hs trade of China
and India through tbe control of the
silver market. It is from this inter*
national feature of tbe complications
that he looks for assistance for the sit*
v#r-l#«d mlnlrrglrwInMry. Hrnal Rrttsin
cannot alord to allow tbe United Sates
lo assine abaoiuta control of tbe world's
tilvtr production, sine* ibis might mean
tbe moving of the world's silver marks*
from Lm4oa to New York, and would
fajurtoasfy affect Ormt Wrtt^nf trade
with China and the East. There is one
way in which such an undesirable .consummation could be prevented, and
this would be by the control of the
Kootenay silver-lead mines by British
syndicates, or the investment of sufficient money in the silver-lead properties
to facilitate the groupiug of mines with
a view to smelting. This, in the opinion of Mr. Campbell-Johnston, is the
great essential. JThe properties necessary for Buch a combination are already
more or less developed, and all that is
necessary to carry the scheme through
is sufficient capital. With such a
grouping of properties, and a smelting
plant located at the dry ore, virtually
two of the milkings which the industrj
is submitted to would be done away
with, and would place the silver-lead
properties in a much more favorable
position than couldbe hoped for under
any system of government bonus upon
iciiucu |jruuuui.
the establishment of a refinery on the
Pacific coast would be easy, and to be
of any real benefit to the mines of
Kootenay the refinery for their ores
should be located there. It is from the
far east that the great demand for silver
and lead comes, and to supply it the
refinery should have the advantage of
the cheap water transportation rates to
and from the Pacific coast. To accept
the present proposal of a government
bonus upon refinery product, with "a
refioery situated in the province of
Quebec, is to assume too much. It Involves a change, in his opinion, of the
policy of the transportation and smelting companies by which their rates for
freight and treatment are based upon
what tho silver-lead Industry can Btand.
It would simply result in transferring
control of the Kootenay silver-lead industry from the United States smelter
and lead trust to the transportation and
smelting interests on this side of the
boundary line. In his opinion It may
take British opinion a year or so to
crystalite, but it will come. The probable incursions of the United States
silver trust into British commerce aro
too serious, and the sliver deposits of
Kootenay are too rich to allow the
present unsatisfactory conditions to
continue very long, especially when all
that Is necessary is the capital for working sxpensas.

It takes 24 adult hours to reach
the Soo from Toronto. Business
is good between Sudbury and tiie
Soo. Commercial travelers were
thick all along the line. Sudbury
is the wholesale centre for smallpox in the district They hive the
entire business at this point, and
young doctors ride up and down
on the trains seeking opportunities
to inoculate victims with the pus
of cow-pox. What a nasty outrage
to be permitted in this age I Still
they say smallpox is very fatal
around Sudbury and kills one to
the million.
The Soo is a live town. Years
ago when the boom of '87 struck it
full tilt the boosters used to say
that it would be a second Chicago.

from regions beyond who come to
Montreal and teach doctrines contrary to the truths of scripture
have a hard time of it. Some of
them have not been crucified, although some of their followers
think they ought to be. Herron
should be flayed, if the process
were not contrary to law."
Now that is what we call the
real Calvinistic spirit. If old Cal
was in Toronto he could not have
done much better than this bloodthirsty scribbler. It will be remembered that Cal burned his
rival a la southern negro fashion.
The Review editor must have had
his soul poisoned with creed mush,
and his reason clouded by the vapor
of bigotry. His mutterings sound
more like the words of a Spanish
Inquisition thumb screw artist than
those of a nice, clean howler for
Jesu6. To advocate murder does
not seem the right thing for a religious paper to do. It jars upon
our intellect that real religion never
does anything of that sort. The
devil is generally credited with
that kind of work, and, bad as
Nick is said to be, we think he
would hardly skin a man alive because he held opposite opinions.
If there are any good Presbyterians
left in Toronto they should run the
Review editor through a Turkish
bath, give him a dose of calomel,
and then search him for microbes
of insanity. His article on Herron
indicates that he is either one of
the biggest fools that ever wasted
ink, or else a villain whose heart
is black with a hatred for real
goodness. 7

higher mental plane than the majority of souls on this earth. He
is famous and has many enemies.
He has pumped the cold lead of
reason into the creed market, and
consequently the orthodox denounce
him as an heretical villain whose
very name would rot the nose off a
brass monkey. George once lost a
fat professorship because his views
for tbe benefit of humanity clashed
with the capitalistic pirate behind
the college bank roll. His bouI
was above the touch of gold, and
for a time he suffered. His marriage was not harmonious, and following sense and nature he changed
women legally. Nature points the
way to -joy and harmony in matrimonial affairs,but the church points
the way to hell when it would have
men and women live together after
love is dead. Herron stood above
the church, and now its knife-
bladed followers are dumping slops
upon him at every torn in the
road. It was ever thus. George
is not the first thinker and reformer
who has been covered bv slime
thrown by lesser and misguided
souls. Even Christ was persecuted.

religious weekly published in that
wholesale centre of erw-ds,Toronto.

Advertising does pay. No businessman would claim that it doesn't. It is
true therejare men in business In every
town who claim! that it doesn't, the
samo as there are men who claim that
the world is flat. But It doesn't alter
the case. Advertising does pay. For
instance, a man in a neighboring camp
advertised (or a girl and the next
day his wife had one. But to make advertising pay you must know something
about It, and put that knowledge into
practical use. There are innumerable
methods of advertising, and any one ot
them can be made successful. The
most popular, and undoubtedly tha
surest method, is through the columns
of a newspaper. But advertising in
even the best newspaper will aot bring
business. This is not tho fault of the
newspaper, however. The selection of
a business location and the general ap*
pearancegof a business bouse has much
to do with tha success of tha buiinass,
but thatiislnot all. Tbe selection of a
bright, spicy.lneatly.prlnted newspaper
Is essential to successful advertising,
but that Is not all. Neither Is the appearance of an ad everything.  Appear*
unci* count ferttnuch, but other thing*
count for more.   First, an advertiser
nhouli know what he wants to advertise
and then study how to word his ad so
aa to emphasise that particular article
and ei plain Its merits In a way that is
not only concise but attractive.    To
this should be added absolute truthful* I
nesa. An advertisement should contain nothing that is not substantially
correct.   But Jibe expression of this
truth ia of vital Importance.   To say
that John Jones is conducting a genetal
mioreatilU* busine** and that his stock
