When Slocan's "100" came up
to Silverton recently by special
boat they came fully intent upon
carrying home with them the scalps
of the Silverton hockeyites. The
intention was a legitimate one; but,
like many another, it went to pave
a place hotter than Silverton.
The skating rink was packed,
and it was a tremendously noisy
crowd. The visitors were as full
of whoops as a barrel factory. They
didn't use their vocal organs for
anything else. SilvertQn's rooters
were also out in force.

Twenty men are now employed
at the Fisher Maiden, Four Mile.
All are working on the big ore body,
and sopn large shipments will be
made from that property. The ore
is high in lead and zinc.
The recent carload shipped from
the Fisher Maiden to the Denver,
Colo., smelter netted the company
more than double what it would
had the ore been sent to our local
smelters. Instead of having to pay
a penalty on the zinc, the Denver
smelter paid a royalty of over §200
on it.
This is the smelting company
represented by Geo. Huston of Sandon, Tlieir zinc plant has recently
heen enlarged to treat 100 tons a
day. The process is entirely new
to America, and the treatment
charge te much lower than any
other smelter can make under the
old process of treatment.
C. D. McCrae, refaree.
The game was exceedingly hot,
in spots.    In the first half the Four
Mjle__boy_s played off. Slocan
scored three goals. Then they
touched the key-note and all was
easy sailing thereafter. They had
to work for it, 'tis true, but when
all combinations work well hard
work becomes easy. Mills shot
two goals and Bain, Blomfield and
McKinnon one each. For Slocan,
Milne shot one and McMillan two.

This was tho greatest game ever
played with hockey sticks. The
audience roared with laughter and
the rooters tumbled over each other
in their excitement. Three goals
were scored and all of them by the
Silverton lassies. It is said that
the Slocan girls shut their eyes
every time thoy threw the puck,
and when the Silverton girls cbuld
not shoot the goals they sat on it.
Billy Hicks refereed the game. He
hasn't done much of anything
since.
After the hockey games the famished crowd had supper at the Victoria and then spent some hours in

ST.   PATRICK    AT    8ILVEKTON.
— f
Thursday last a very successful
concert and ball was given by the
Silverton Miners' Union.
The concert was held in McKin-
njon's hall, which was tastefully
decorated for the occasion.
The first number on the program
was "El Captain" which was rendered by the Silverton string band
in their usual well-known manner,
after which was The Soldier's
Chorus by the Glee club. The next
was a song by Mrs. Patriquin
"Killarney," which she sung in
splendid style and was loudly encored.
Miss Coburn played a piano solo.
"The Burning of Rome," which
was heartily encored. Then came
Miss Brandon, Mrs. Patriquin, Jno.
Thirling and Dan Brandon in a
quartette, "Come Where theLillies
Bloom." They also sung a comic
quartette called "O P R A" which
jvas_ive]I_receivjed.„and nut—the-
audience in  a good humor.
The young ladies of the Silverton
Hockey club sang something about
Cassey, and the way they were, encored showed that playing hockey
is by no means their only accomplishment. They responded with
a composition of tlieir own "In the
Good old Winter Time."
Mrs. Patriquin, accompanied by
the string band sang a little coon
song, "Play in Your Own Back
Yard," which was well adapted to
her voice and was again loudly encored.
Miss Sarah Lawson, Miss Jen-
nette Barclay and Miss Maggie Barclay displayed considerable talent
in a dialogue, and succeeded in
amusing the audience  very much.
Wm. Mills played a mandolin
solo (enulYsed).
The concert closed with the singing of "God Save the King," after
which everybody proceeded to the
Union Hall where they danced till

exasperating neglect. Poplar has
been a town since last summer, and
is in a rich free gold belt. The discoveries in that camp have astonished the world but up to date the
C.P.R. has not appointed an agent,
or even put in a telegraph office.
Such neglect does not show good
business sense, and it looks as
though Canada's great octopus had
a spite against the town, simply because a rival railway owns land bnt
has no road into that section. The
country is kept back by such tactics,
but probably some future generation
will reap the benefit.
Then the mail service into Lardeau from Nelson is so slow that
the people of Poplar are thinking
of sending their letters by carrier
pigeons. If the Post-office Department of Canada attended more to
the wants of the people, and less to
shuting the mails to some of New
York's best papers in order to please
the moss-grown bigots of the cent

With energetic action, and the cooperation of the C.P.K. this country should be Hooded with tourists

broadcast over the world would advertise it extensively, and they can
be got at cost for that purpose.

James P. Geddes, of New York,
representing the Canadian Coal
Mining Company, which he says is
strongly backed by American capitalists, recently appeared before
the New Brunswick government
and asked the government to approve of legislation for a charter for
the company to construct a railway
from Coal Branch, Kent County, to
the company's mines, eight miles
distant, with power to extend to
Richibucto harbor, sixteen miles
and also to build westerly to connect with the N. B. Coal and Railway Company's line at Chipman.
Mr. Geddes explained that the company—had—acq u ired~som e~eigh fcy-
miles of land and estimates there
are 60,000,000 tons bituminous coal
there of excellent quality. They
propose to begin railroad building
in the spring and will ship 500 tons
daily when the first road is built.
They say they have spent $140,000
already in prospecting and developing.

TOO   MUCH   HIAWATHA.
Then the baud played Hiawatha, •
Played it up and down the highways,
Tooted it along the byways;
At park concerts played loudly,
Played itself back from the graveyard,
To fhe ever haunting measure,
While the people who will whistle
Joined in misfit key the chorus,
Ando'en some dared raise their voices
In a dee-de dura-ti dum dum.
Lacking words to grace their meaning,
Or. it may be, lacking meaning;
At pianos idly thumping
Tender maidens also played it-
Till the atmosphere resounded
With the strains of Hiawatha.
Then, when shades of night had fallen,
And the push was silent, tired out.
Then, ah, then we found with sorrow
That it all had been for nothing,
All our sufferings for nothing,
For all the ardent tooters,
All the whistlers so persis ent,
All thc hummers cracked or rancous.
All the thumpers of pianos,
Not one of the whole blamed outfit
Had In one erratic measure
Slruck tho note that kills mosquitos;
And tlironghout the long night's darkness,
Still the insects buzzed about us,
That same tune with variations,
So much suffering is futile!

Lead is the heaviest of all the
base metals, its specific gravity being 11.40.
Native lead is a rarity. The best
specimens of native lead ever found
came from the lead mines of Sweden.
The world-famous silver-lead
mines of the Harz mountains of
Saxony and Silesia were discovered
about 999 A. D.
• The metal lead in the table of
elements is known as Pb. or Plumbum. Lead melts at 320 degrees C.
or 608 degrees F.
The grade of commercial lead is
frequently told by the resistance it
offers to the scratch of the fingernail and by the streak it makes on
raper.
There are known 92 metals
in which the metal lead is contained
as a chemical compound, and it surpasses all other metals in number
of species.
Lead readily withstands the action of acids and is extensively used
in the construction of lead chambers
in the manufacture of acids, especially sulphuric.
There are but three metals of
commerce that have a specific gravity higher than lead, viz: gold, plat
inum and mercury
gravity of pure lead is 11.40, with
gold at 19-19.30.
Lead is very soft when permitted
to cool and solidify slowly. It is
harder if cooled quickly, and if it
epntains a small admixture of other
metals, such as copper, arsenic, zinc
or antimony.
In 1825 there was produced in
the United States 1,500 short tons
of lead, and production has steadity
advanced from year to year when
in 1903 no less than 280,000 tons
of the metal was produced.
Lead was known to the Egyptians and is therefore one of the oldest known metals. It was used by
them in the glossing of pottery. The
Greeks, and Romans mined lead in
Spain, Greece, England, etc.
There were 82,000 tons of lead
made in the United States during
1903 from foreign ores and base
bullion. These ores were all from
Mexico and Canada, and this total
is in addition to the United States'
production.
Most oxidized lead ores when
carrying silver carry it in the shape-
of chloride, though it may occur in
other forms, as sulphide andantim-
onide. The proportion of lead and
silver in carbonate ores is much less
uniform than in sulphide ore.
By far the greater bulk of lead
produced in all the world comes
from the sulphide ore, galena. There
is some small production from the
carbonate cerussite, and the sulphate anglesite, but all other lead
ores are nothing more than curiosities because of their scarcity.
Lead ore was first located in
Missouri at Mine LaMotte in 1700,
and in 1720 operations* were begun.
The celebrated Mine LaMotte was
discovered by Francis Renault and
M. LaMotte. Francis Burton was
the discoverer in 1763 of the famous
Mine la Burton.
There are three general processes
for the reduction of lead from galena ores—the air reduction process,
the roasting and carbon reduction
process, and the precipitation of
|inmi^diiction process.     A subse-
The   specific quent refining process is needed in
each instance for the production of
commercial lead pig.
Lead ores occur in granite, limestone, argillaceous and sandstone
rocks, and are often associated with
ores of' zinc, silver and copper.
Quartz, barite and calcite, is most
usually the gangue of lead ores, and
in certain districts the mineral
fluorspar is frequently the gangue
rock.—Chicago Mining World.
BEFININGS.
From Utah is made the report
that benator W. A. Clark, of Montana, is casting about to consummate a $25,000,000 merger of Utah
mining properties. No further particulars are given.
The actual consumption of charcoal in cyanide process in Victoria
is about 100 pounds for every ten
ounces of gold on small plants to 15
ounces of gold for every lOOpouuds
charcoal on large plants.
No metal is more destructive
than mercury when deposited on the
zinc, as it rapidly reduces it to a
pulpy mass, from which the metallic mercury may be largely separated by squeezing it in a cloth.
Hydraulic mines of California
produce about $1,250,000 annually,
the drift mines yield about $1,000,-
000, and dredging operations $800,-
000. From quartz mines of the
state the production exceeds $13,-
000,000.
The Gillette bill, now pending before the house of representatives,
provides for removal of the cases of
hydraulic miners in California from
state to Federal district courts. The
motive given is that the miners cannot get justice in the valley courts,
where agriculture predominates.
The production of infusorial earth
in 1902 was 5,665 short tons, valued at $33,224. A considerable
tripoli is imported yearly, which is
included with the so-called rotten
stone used for similar purposes.
The value of imports in 1902 was
$39,926, being rather larger than
the home production.

There is a thing in the world that has been since
the world began:
The hatred of man lor woman, the hatred of
woman for man,
When shall this thing end? When love ends hatred ends.
For love is a chain between foes, and love is a
sword between friends.
Shall there never be love without hatred? Not
since the world began.
Until man teach honor to woman, and woman
teach pity toman.
O that a man might live his life for a little tide
Without this rage in his heart, and without this
foe at his side!
He could eat and sleep and be merry and forget,
he could live well enough
Were it not. for this thinsr tliat remembers and
hates, and that hurts and is love.
But peace has not  been  in  the world since love
and the world begun
For the man remembers the woman, and the
woman remembers the man.

In mining opals iu Idaho, so that
the opals are not injured the method of breaking the rock is as follows: Lime is inserted into drilled
holes and water then poured in. A
wooden plug is then tightly driven
in the month of the hole. The
swelling of tho lime breaks the rock
gradually, and the opals are thus
secured with but a minimum of
damage.
In the oil fields of Texas great
rapidity of boring is secured by the
aid of a rotary tube or tool, through
which water is pumped under high
pressure to carry away the debris.
It is a common practice to mix as
much clay possible with the water,
but this is condemued in Home instances, tho heavy head of clay and
water tends to keep back any show
of oil.
In 1902 the production of
Rutile was about 50,000 pounds,

Tabasco, July 7.
Dear Herald:
Standing sadly before my useless
typewriter mended with zeal and a
pewter spoon, by Paul, aged three,
X resolve to bow with chastened
spirit to the universal unfitness
slowly fitting; as should each, who
postulates the ideal and worships
but neglects the positive.
Life is like a long tunnel, entered
unwittingly. Forward with stumbles, but trust the tiny spark shining far ahead. There's no use scolding wobblers, or those who wilfully
shut their eyes. God's walls are
faithful. A'little moral arrica, a
song, joke, or whistled jig and a
weep with the weepers is about all.
I see that some of your literary hyenas are worrying the corpse of
Emerson. If the man had only
said: ' 'Hitch your wagon to a star,''
it would have made his memory
holy to whole-hearted folk for aye.
The ideal above all; there is no irreverence so ghastly as that of postulating the synthesis of the universe yet. The great delvers who
gave these folk their data for their
droll half-baked theories, never
dreamed of coming to such use.
Each man or bird that sings of or
points to the tunnel's jewel spark
does well for that day. Pessimists
and critics only bump the wall and
yelp. People should be judged by
the way they make us feel, from
Job's wife up the line. Think of
the dyspeptic sinners, that have
been helped over the despair line,
by some artistic painterliar of the
emptiness of the empty, in general.
The influence of this is even apparent in the psychic buiid-upof
Czolgosz, tho assassin. These d—d
hell gilders and heaven smirchers
set us brooding. Every sane old
man can swear that the average
man is far more honest, than dishonest and the average woman far
purer than impure, yet we are
flooded with fiction that denies it
and philosophy, in accord with the
denial.    ' 'As he thinketh so is he.''
It has a funny side. There is a
pseudo-literary subjectively developing in some folk that makes them
like the painting better than the
original. I had a lady friend that
was wild over Omar Kay yam, but
objected strongly to a practical application of his philosophy in a rose
garden I hired fon the purpose.
Is the psycho-moral state that admires but fears quite proper?
I have the last Munsey talking
about "gardens of the rich'', and
explaining to the poor, how they
must not envy the rich, but get a
move on to do something that will
make the hoi polloi mass squirt
them up to wealth and prominence
and so on. It's as funny as Mark
Twain was, but unconscious humor
of course. There is no wealth but
richness of sympathy in active
health where you are. A tool house
on a hill would not be the Parthenon. There is nothing droller in
history than a lot of pleasure lovers
in possession of more than they can
use, paying a lot of cheap skates to
explain the mob into good humor.
Do these far-sighted ones or their
agents forsee trouble on the iuevit-
ebb of prosperity?
The tail has wagged the dog
sometimes.

Walter Kenton   Ingalls,
Lead and Zinc News says:
"The total production of spelter
in the world at the present time is
a little more than 600,000 tons per
annum, of which the United States
produces about 157,000   tons, and
the rest is   produced   in   Europe,
chiefly in Belgium   and Germany.
There are also smelters in Austria,
France, Great   Britain,   Holland,
Italy, Russia   and   Spain.    In the
United States  substantially all the
ore that is smelted   is   of domestic
origin; in Europe, the smelters import their ore from other countries
to a very large extent; thus Belgium
produces a good deal of spelter but
-mines-only-a Bmall-quantity-of-ore;-
iu Germany, however,   although a
good deal of imported ore is smelted
there, especially on the Rhine, the
major part of the spelter production
is derived from the ore mined in its
province of Upper   Silesia.    Inasmuch as the United States has been
in the past an exporter of spelter to
Europe and is likely   to be a large
exporter at periods in the future, it
is interesting to   consider wherein
American aud European conditions
of zinc production differ.
"The most important single zinc
producing district in Europe is that
of Upper Silesia, centering at the
adjacent cities of Buethen and Kat-
towitz, the smelting works being
situated nearby. Upper Silesia
alone produces upward of 129,000
tons of spelter per a num, and in
point of productio' now stands
ahead of the Joplin uistrict. There
are several features of resemblance
in the two districts. Thus both
have ore bodies lying approximately horizontal and at a moderate
depth below the surface. The topography of the surface is si mi liar.
In both caseH there are coal fields
close by which afford ample fuel
resources for smelting. In both
cases, moreover, lead and zinc occur in association, and there iB a
lead smelting industry a* well as a
zinc smelting. Here, however, the
analogies end. The Silesian ores
mcur in larger deposits than they
do at Joplin, and as it exists in thc
mines tho ore is of higher grade in
zinc. On the other hand, the ore
is more difficult to separate, and it
is impossible to produce so high a
grade of concentrate as in Joplin.
Silesia has had, furthermore, a
vastly greater quantity of calamine,
including both silicate aud carbonate ore, than Joplin ever had, and
in fact up to a comparatively recent
time the calamine was thc chief ore
mined. The deposit* have been exploited since the ititli century, and
for tho last 100 years on a scale constantly increasing to the present
proportions, In this long career
tho oxidized ores have become ex-
JjRustcU to marge exwrui., ami im-mn-
which was not mined at all previous
to about 1870 is now nol only the
more importantsonrce of thespelter,
but also its tonnage exceeds that of
tho calamine.
"The ore that is received in Belgium from other European f buntries
comes largely in calcined or roasted
condition, this part of the work being done frequently at the mines in
order to save freight and possibly
realize other advantages. The
smelters are therefore like those of
Silesia, frequently unprovided with
roasting furnaces. It is now generally the practice, however, for the
smelters to have roasting plants,
which are in many cases separate
from the smelting works. Thus the
Veille Montagne Company has a
large roasting plant at Baelen-We-
zel, from which the desulphurized
ore is distributed to its various
smelting plants. Like the the bil-
esian smelters, the Belgians and
Rheinlanders make sulphuric acid
from the roast gases to a very large
extent."
