freight and treatment on silver-lead ores
has been twenty dollars per toi:. This
excessive freight and treatment, charge,
coupled with the low price of lead in
1901, caused nianv mines to close down.
"On January 1st. 1902, the British
Columbia smelters announced a reduction of from three to four dollars per
ton for freight and treatment* charges
on silver-le'ad ores, and as the price of
lead is now steadily advancing, tin;
mines will be. in a position to resume
operations. In December, 1900, the
EnjHiBh price for lead was £18 per ■ton.
In January, 1901, the price began falling until it went down to £10 per ton,
and has fluctuated around that fiinire
until within the last few weeks It is
now steadily ad'w.icing, the present,
quotation being £11 12s f>d.
'•Another very serious drawback has
been the fact- that the silver-lead smelters of British Columbia  have not been !
able to handle the entire output of the;
mines, and a large tonnage had to bej
shipped to United States and European
points at thi* expense of heavy freight
"For example, the St Eugene mine
at Movie lust year shipped 11,000 tons
of silver-lead concentrates to Antwerp,
paying SIT per ton for freight alone
These concentrates were smelted audi
refined iii Antwerp; the pig load was
then turned into white and red lead* i
and several thousand tons of these products shipped back to Canada, a^ain
paying heavy freight charges. The
mine owners'of British Columbia felt
that their ores'shoiild . be spielted and
refined in: Canada', and' ttiade- ■ representations, to the Dominioiipgovernment to
help out, the. industry, The government recognized the difficulties under
granted a mtjftsure of relief in the way1
of a bounty for the reduet-ionofi pig lead
in,.Canada :.To my.• .mintf.-. the.relief
granted was inadequate, and should- be
dolYbled.    :    •'  ■•-': -■.;.-...■):.;

Canada' will produce lier owp pig, lead,
nnd': natiti'ally it will bo corroded at
home and turned into white and1 red
lead, not only for home consumption
hut.also for, export. British ,Columbia
produces td ti' raw inaterial in rapidly
increfiping (jtiautilies, andwitliiii a few
years Canada-should be an important
factor iu supplying the white lend markets of the world. ,Thus it is that, the
development of one industry leads to
the establifihiii),'of others, e'ac'h doing
its part towards the-upbnildingof Can
atta and adding to the wealth of the
nation   : ...
' The settlement of the labor .troubles,
tho lowering of freight and, treatment

l.08,2M Of this the Amorican Smelting
and Refining Company paid $875,000 on
its preferred stock; the Quincv Mine, of
Utah. $375,000, on a S75.000 capital, and
the Homestake Gold Mine in the Black
Hills, South Dakota, 3315,000, being at
the rate.of fi per cent, annuallv on $21,-
000,000 stock.
The'copper.'companies'in several Instances,have reduced thoir annual rate,
owing-to the lower selling price of the
metal. Six companies reported S3,692,-
160, and. of this amount the Amalgamated, which controls properties in
Montana, paid'$1,538,079, and Calumet
& Hecla, of Michigan, 81,000,000.
, Two zinc concerns divided 8711,248,
of which the New Jersey Zinc, Com
pany reported §700,000.'Three California quicksilver properties paid $35,-
000. Thus 57 metal mines declared a
total of 88,001,640
A number of new payers liave been
added to the list, while .increased dividends liave been declared by others
whose profits have grown with the in-
diistriiil expansion.
In addition to the above mentioned
dividends we report $3-26,760by 12 Mexican mines, led by th-e-Petioles*, of Mapi-
mi (owned in Belgium), with $161,438,
equal to 50 per cent, monthly on .its

attacks of vacuum.
They never shake dice in Calgary.
The inhabitants are generally too
dry to wait that long for a drink

The Slocan is full of big silver

Their weight might not feel so

Talmage has passed over the

Judging from the many articles

It is not, although we raise something occasionally. Sometimes it
is the other fellow, sometimes lend

baby, and in older days much hell
was raised,"hut lately scarcely a
trace of th'e latter is ever brought
to the surface. We raise our hopes
every spring, and just now we are
clearing the way for the raising of

rates is not expected. There is no
rayson why we should not raise
more in the Slocan than we do, but
we see little chance for it until the
Government is razed.

again went back to God and carried
his bible into every fight. Thus do
mortals chase the wrong God and

A **esteru writer who recently visited
Georgia says that on th^. very first day
he was addressed as "captain," and that,
after ten days everybody called" him
"colonel.'' Ho was somewhat puzzled
about it, but tbe whole thing is very
simple, as the following- will show:
First—Give a Georgia darkey « ';*-.ha\v

Second—Give'him a quarter, ymi become a colonel
Thiid—Paralyze him with "a dollar,

"You may talk of your *Lead-

."tones an'" such," commented the
informed Corastoeker, "but I say,
au' I'll bet on it, there never was,
never will be and never can be as
hot, as ?wift. as great a mining
tamp an was Virginia City, Nev.,
with Gold Hill as an annex, in the
seventies. There haa been a good
deal .said and written and published
in books about Virginia City before
the days when old Bill Comstock
made the first discoveries," he continued, musingly, "and they were
crude times.   All they   had   then
house level with the   grade,   drop [to the ol

perience meetings, and th«y wasn't j torn it i-

would lope out   in   fatigue  regimentals    and   shoo   them   away.
They'd just natch.urally hop up a
story or two and  turn  around   to
say 'ba-aa' as innocent looidn', but
as cussid as a heathen Chinee."
The old-timer condescended to
refresh himself at the expense of
the "tenderfeet" as he called them,
then continued:
"As to flies. As 1 said before,
the Comstock mines were the hottest
in the world.    We worked praotic- p

"Well, the flit.*- was hotter and
thicker than 'oiled grease cooling
off. They just natchurally seemed
to burn a feller where they lit, and
there was billions of 'em, hatched
out from theleavin'sof lunch grub,
I guess. A man would comedown
from a hot floor drenched and drip- oi a..
ping and with all his nerves a-tin
gle to cool off a bit, while his part
ner made a 'pass,' All the flies in
the neighborhood would make a
break for him. The wetness caught
them and there they stuck. And
them Hies could wiggle, twist and
squirm and waggle worse nor a
nigger caught visitin' a hen coop
at midnight. I've heard more
brilliant single-handed swearing
over sticky flies that) I ever heard
over anything else. There was but
one way to stand em off. That
was bio -a out.your candle and go
sit in the dark."
The reformed Comstoeker shifted
about as if again feeling the bodily
presence of the flies.

whom have the utmost difficulties in

England has never depended upon  her
territorial   possessions,   but   upon the
number of good men and good  women
she has reared.   The pride of  power
and lust of gold mark the decadence,
not the advancement, of a people.   The
right policy for us to pursue is the development of our resources  at   home
rather than expansion and exploitation
abroad.    England's   glory  would not

She inherits the time-worn garments,
That ill suflice for another;
And things none else would welcome.
Are laid by for "only mother."
She is up when the rest are sleeping-,
To finish the task of another,
And if till the midnight she linger,
What matter? 'tis "only mother."
She does not care for the sunshine—      ,
The joy and the light of the flowers?
She haa only thought for the duties
o That drag thro' the leaden hours?
She does not care? ah, some day,
You may iiud what it is to smother
The pain and the longing and heartache
And learn to be "only mother."
God pity you then!   God shield you
While yet you may bring to that other
Such comfort and love as will make you
o A blessing to "only mother."

Invention has filled thi*. world with
competitors not only of labor but of
mechanics—mechanics of the highest
skill. Today tho ordinary laborer is
for the most part but a cog in the
wheel. Ho works with the tireless—he
feedB the insatiable. When the monster stops the man is out of employment
—out of bread. He has not paved anything. The iii-achine that he fed was
not feeding liirn—the invention was not
for liis benefit.
The other day I heard a man say
that itwas impossible for thousands of
good mechanics to get emp!oyment,and
that in his judgment the governmentj
ought, to furnish work for the people
A few minutes after 1 heard another
say that he was selling a patent for
cutting put clothes—that one of the
machines could do the work of twenty
tailors; that only the week before he
had sold two at a great house in New
York, and that 10 cutters had been discharged.
On every side men are being discharged and machines are being invented to take their places. When the
great factory shuts down the workers
who inhabited it and gave it life, as
thoughts do the brain, go away and, it
stands there like, an empty skull. A
few workmen liy force of -habit'-gather
about the closed doors ahd broken Windows and talk about distress and tlie
price of food and the coming winter.
They are convinced that thev have not
had their share of what their labor produced. Thoy feel certain that the machines inside were not their friends.
Thev look up at the mansion of the employer, and think of the place where
they live. They have saved nothing-
nothing but themselves. The employer
seems to have enough. Even when
employers fail, when they become bank
rupt, they are far better off i! *K-
laborers ever  were.    Their
better than the toilers' best.

than the
worst is
devoured the weak—actually ate their
flesh.    In spite of all the laws thkt man
has made, in spite of all advances in
science, the strong, the heartless, still
live on the weak, the unfortunate and
the foolish.   True, they do not eat their
flesh or drink their blood, but they live
on their labor, on their self-denial, on
their weakness and want.   The poor
man who deforms himself by toil, who
labors for his wife and children through
all his anxious, barren, wasted life—
who goes to the grave without  ever
having one luxury—has been the fool
of others,   He has been devoured by
his fellowmen.   The poor woman living
in the bare and lonely room, cheerless
and fireless, sewing night and day to
keep starvation from a child, is slowly
being eaten by her fellowmen.   When
I take into consideration the agony of
civilized life, the failures, the anxieties,
the tears, the withered hopes, the bitter
realities,  the hunger,  the crime, the
humiliation, the shame,—1 am almost
forced to say that cannibalism, after all,
is the most merciful form in which man
has ever lived upon his fellowinan.
It is impossible tor a man with a good
heart to he satisfied with the world as
it is now. No man can truly enjoy what
he earns—what he knows to be his own
—knowing that millions of his fellowmen are in misery and want. When
we think of the famished we, feel that it
is almost heartless to eat. To meet the
ragged and shivering makes ono almost
ashamed to bo well dressed and warm-
one feels as though his heart was as
cold as their bodies.
In a world filled with millions and
millions of acres of land waiting to be
tilled, where one man can raise the food
-for hundreds,'millions are on the edge
of famine . Who can comprehend the
stupidity at the bottom of this truth?
Is there to bo no change?
; Are the "laws of supply and demand," invention andscience.monopoly
and competition, capital ahd legislation
alwavs to be the enemies of those who
toil?" Will the workers always be ignorant enough and stupid enough to
give:t'*eir earnings for the useless?
Will they support millions of eoldiers
to kill tlie sons of other workingmen?
Will they always build temples, and
live in lints anil ileus themselves? Will
they forever allow parasites aud vampires to feed on their blood? Will they
remain the slaves of the beggars they
support?- Will honest men stop taking
off their hats to successful fraud? Will
industry in the presence of crowned
idleness, forever fall on its knees, and
will the lips unstained by lies forever
kiss the robed impostor's hand? Will
they understand that beggars cannot
be generous, and that every healthy
man must earn the right to live? Will
thev finally say that the man who has
had equal privileges with all others has
no right to complain, or will they follow
the example set by their oppressors?
Will they learn that force, to succeed,
must have thought behind it, and that
anything done in order that it.may endure must rest upon the cornerstone of
justice?—Robert. G. Ingersoll.

The con ventioif which opens atlvain-

stance, at Nanaimo; where a labor candidate is generally sure of election, tliis
party has n platform of its own makeup, which in some details may differ

may be different. What is wanted is
