is so heavy relatively that this weight
of it would be in bulk ruther larger
than half the siy„« ot a pound of gold.
Yet the so-called "iridium" of a gold
nib are. not of pure iridium, but of a
natural blend of iridium and another
rare metal, osminutu This blend is
found in the form of scales—some flattened, some ofthe pin head shape—in
localities where placer gold is got,
placer gold being the sort that is obtained by washing'loose dirt and not by
Of these "iridosmine" scales the pin-
head 'type alone is suitable for pen
points, and does not exceed a fifth of
the entire yearly find, which may aver
age three and a half to four otuices per
ton of gold obtained.
Of the pin-head scales 10,000 do not
we-gh more than an ouvce, and are
worth'about S250. Pure iridium is alloyed with platinum, to make the closing
faces of breech-block for modern artill-
rry, this compound being the only
thing that will stand the corrosion, of
the gases and the enormous heat—about
4,000 degrees centigrade. Over a thousand rounds have been fired from a trial
gnn without the vent showing the.slight-
est sign of wear.
For pure osminuin there is not a great
deal of use, except in chemistry, yet the
rarity of it drives up the nriee'to'*fr>0 an
ounce, $600 a troy pound. At a temperature of 100 degrees centigrade this
singular metal vaporizes and gives off
a gas which stains the experimenter's
skin a permanent black,and which may
blind him by depositing a "film of the
metal on tho eyeball.
Rhodium is another of the precious
metals belonging to what is known as
the "platinum'' group. It is one ot the
hardest, metals to melt, and will only
yield to the electi-icflrc_or_tba_jo_x,yhydrogen lime furnace. It can he used,
like iridium, for pointing gold pens.
Its cost fi*i-ures out to.8495 a pound, but
at that it is a trifle lighter than gold
when taken bulk for bulk.
The curiously named metal "palad-
luiii" stands at $M7"i per pound, and in
appearance is of a silver white to steel
gray. One per cent, of it makes gold
brittle, and yellowish white, 20 percent
turns the compound quite white The
air has no influence whatever upon pal-
adlum, nor does it tarnish in sulphuric
gaiies. For these reasons it is used in
alloy with gold for the finely graduated
scales of valuable astronomical instruments. If, instead of a silver currency,
we employed any of the almost incredibly costly metals—supposing we could
get enough of them, which would be
il illicit It—our ideas of value would undergo a sudden change.
An iridium dime, without looking
nny different, would be worth **2 50,and
an osmium one would have an ex-
c-'iingenhlo value of twice the amount.
Small ekitiae in either metal would
have lo In* made by an expert—West-

To summarize the workings for the
past six months:
(1) 48f>| leet of development has been
(2) 347 tons of ore have been mined,
yielding £(5,109 2s.   o
(3) Further valuable reserves have
been opened up.
The recent negotiations of tbe Board
have resulted hi the acquisition of the
entire Monitor property at a price
which,considering recent developments,
may be considered very favorable The
issued capital has only been very
slightly increased.
The Board are sanguine as to the result of this season's workings, and look
forward with pleasurable anticipation
to the satisfactory statement they will
be enabled to place before the shareholders at the end of their financial
The total amount of ore shipped from
the Slocan and Slocan City mining

Some time ago a committee from the
B. C. Boards of Trade waited on the
government at Ottawa, and succeeded
in getting the'government to grant a
bonus to lead refineries in Canada. The
committee has mere recently asked that
an import duty of 35 p'er cent, be imposed on all pig and manufactured lead
coming into Canada, the effect of which
would be that refineries and lead works
would arise of necessity, which, it is
claimed, would be to the great benefit
of mining and business all round.
Nothing came of it, nor of their reduced request for a duty of 25 per cent
Hence we have seen in the past two
weeks unusual activity in all of the
Kootenay towns in thii way of public
meetings being held and "resolutions
passed strongly urging the government
to impose sucli a tax and thus materially assist the mining and refining industry, and build up the mineral resources
of Canada.
Although the government at Ottawa
has not given any assurance that a protective tariff policy will be adopted in
support of silver-lead mining, yet there
areind i cations_nointijg^ii^liflt_diraci
tibh.   ilriiericah capitalists are first to
recognize this.   They know thai sooner
or later protection must be resorted to
if the utaple industry of B. C. is to continue, and that to safeguard tbe interests of smelters, refineries and manufacturers an export duty on lead ore
and bullion will bo imposed.   Further.

"The mining situation in Montana,
Idaho and Washington, is tending to
transfer the smelting industry to tlie
Canadian side, and already' a large
amount of American capital'is invested
in Canadian smelters."
After showing the necessity for wet
ores in treating dry ores it continncs:
"American investors have no fenr of an
export duty on ores, but they do not
know how soon an import tariff may deprive them of the necessary Canadian
ores, and virtually ruin any American
smelter depending mi tlmt Vnuree.1'
This policy li made clear by the con
structioii of the line from Republic in
(Irand ForKs when* the Gninby smelter
—which, like thc Dominion smeller, is
an American enterprise—can asseinlilc
the wet ore* mined at this side for the
mneliingof tlio dry duly-free drv ores
comint! in from Neihart, I.ibb. Cnwk,
Boulder and Mig Mountain in Montana;
I'i'tid D'Orii'He in Malm, and points in
Washington and Cilifornin besidHw
for this article consumed by the people
of Canada, and as the far greater majority of the population is found in
Eastern Canada and the Territories,
they will no doubt register a pr'otest.
How will a protective tariff benefit
the consumer? Will not a tariff that
prohibits foreign competition give to
tho home manufacturer a complete
monopoly of the home market, and enable him through the protective tariff
io chaige all the tariff will permit? In
other words, if we were to have a 30
per cent, tariff it would enable the protected manufacturers to charge tho
home consumer 30 per cent, more for
his lead than he would have to pav for
lead in tlie markets of the world.
Where then would he be benefitted? If
the individual or corporation opt rating
refineries had such a jinch on the people of Canada as it seems they would
have under the protective tariff thev no
doubt would cinch it all it would stand.
They having no competition in buying
the raw material, would pay to the
miee owner only so much as he could
get for his ore by selling it in the
United States, where there is lucent
import duty. Thus the home manu-
tng the raw product, and by means of
the protective tariff would be enabled
to charge the home consumer as much
for tbe finished article as the difference,
between the price in tbe worid'smarket
and tbe duty imposed by this government.
The theory of protection seems to me
like a gun that shoots both ways; hitting the consumer with big prices and
leaving the producers of the raw material in just a little worse condition
than they formerly were, in that they
would have to pay more for what little
they might use of the finished product
and not materially raising the price of
the raw article they..might sell.
Some will argue that in case the protected manufacturers were making too
large a profit in this way, other capitalists would start refineries and com-
pete for the profits, and thus by the law
of competition would keep the price of
raw material up and at the same time
keep tbe price of the finished article
down, This argument will hardly
proye true It is only reasonable to
suppose thai in case of competition
t'lii'Htening to rob each other of the
pitiliN, tliey will readily come to some
kind of terms to snvo themselves—one
might buy the other out, nr they may
combine In ■uv-', O.n* iuhe nl nre linivn
and that nt llu* lini.-diia! arlicle up as
high «»the tariff will permit, or tliey
might sell out to the American smelter

Wicked butchers sometimes sell

In order to recover a commission
from the sale of the Arlington mine
J. K. Clark, twenty months ago,
entered suit against J. F. Collom.
The case has not yet been heard in
Court, and its hearing has again
been postponed until December, 27
months from the time the case was
first entered. This may be law in
British Columbia, but it does no*,
resemble justice. To not at least
hear a case, and keep putting it. off
to accommodate the defendant for
over two years, is carrying masters
with a high hand, provided the
plaintiff has complied with all the
requirements necessary. If he has
the treatment of his case j looks
like an outrage which should be
investigated by some authority
higher than the Courts of this province.    It is the duty of the Courts
,to,give„a speeds' decision—in-—all-
cases.   Judges are the servants of
the people and not their masters.
It may be said that to skepticism
we owe the spirit of inquiry which
during the past two centuries ha«
gradually encroached on every possible subject; has reformed every
department of practical and speculative knowledge; has weakened
the authority of the privileged
classes, and thus placed liberty on
a surer foundation; has chastised
the despotism of princes; has restrained the arrogance of the nobles
and has even diminished the prejudices of the clergy. In a word,
it is this which has remedied the
three fundamental errors of tbe
olden time—errors which made the
people in politics too confiding, iu
science too credulous, in religion
too intolerant.—Buckle.
The power of the priesthood lies
in submission [of the people] to a
creed. In their onslaughts on rebellion they have exhausted human
torments; nor, in their lust for
earthly dominion, have they felt
remorse, but rather joy, when slaving Christ's enemies and their own.
The horrors of the Inquisition, the
massacre of St. Bartholomew, the
atrocities of Laud, the abominations of the Sootch Kirk, the persecutions of the Quakers, had one
object— the enslavement of the
mind.—Brooks Adams,
"Be mine," implored the duke.
"I amnotau helreas," the young

water they drink and grub they
eat is full of bugs.
All booze is full of bugs.
One bugologist draws a big salary for making the discovery that
in the average railway station there
are 27,666 assorted bugs to the
cubic meter.
That's what makes traveling so
The same guy with a microscope
found 268 germs on the roof of his
house on a clear day.
He didn't look in the cellar.
He says these germs are like
worms with horns and buzz-saw
bills and bugs with sword-fish
beaks and dragon claws.
They carry around with them in
bags every disease known to man
except ingrowing toe nails and
dirty habits.
When they get into a man they
let loose and die.
Hence man becomes a storeage
battery for dead bugs and some 240
These bugs have to be corraled
by the professional bacterologists,
their legs counted, stripes or spots
noted, and then given a name.
They can do business without
But the bacterologists can't.
These bug professors have got to
make the people buggy to hold
their cinch.
What kind of bugs seem to be
troubling you most?
Just now the high-tariff bug has
attacked the people of the Kootenay
He *scems lo have-conic in a
series of public meetings emanating
from Nelson;
And is eating the reason out of
the people.
They are whereasing and resolving the government at.Ottawa to
run the tariff up on lead.
So that the lead refiners-to-be in
Canada can run the price up on
the refined 'article and make the
people pay for it.
The lead trust has already got
a foothold in Canada and as it is
an infant industry the people must
help it live.
These bugs have got into the people and deposited therein the eggs
of discontent.
And the people are kept busy
hatching ideas.
The breed that seems to hatch
the easiest has high tariff tendencies and a spring-time imagination.
Almost everybody capable of
hatching anything has the idea that
if the government would raise the
tariff on lead the mining industry
of B. C. would'climb skyward with
baloon-like rapidity.
When this idea is nursed past
the stage of babyhood, perhaps
another idea will be hatched explaining how this is ito be accomplished.
And if there is somebody who is
real good at hatching ideas, it
might be well to explain how the
lead industry is to be benefitted by
a high tariff if the producers of the
raw ore are to continue dependent
upon the same smelter trust that
has always taxed the ore to the utmost limit for treatment, and carriage.
o And they might explain further
how the people are to be benefitted
by a raise of 85 or 40 per cent, on
the cost of'articles manufactured
out of lead, if the producer is to receive no protection from the excessive charges by the smelter-
refinery people.
If the tariff is  unconditionally
raised, and, as is evidently the intention of the promoters of this
high tariff movement after they are
successful in their present effort,
an export duty is put upon raw \
lead ore, the C. P. K.. cinch will
have been double-locked on our
silver-lead mines.
It is to be hoped that while these
high-tariff bugs are agitating the
people out here, some kind of a bug
will crawl into the government at
Ottawa and deposit a line of statesmen's brains.
Protection will build up Canada.
Protection will make Canada as
great as the American nation—

Ifcrnurr Macfadden, in Woman's
Physical Development, says:
"There is not a girl who grows
to the age of reasoning, who does
not desire to develop into a superb
woman. .And a superb woman
must look forward to motherhood.
This is a part of the world's' great
plan. It is not merely a duty.
Nature has made it a condition to
be eagerly and at times intensely
desired by every woman at some
time in her life if she is a superb
-specimen of her sex. It is really
not a matter,of education,of refinement, of reasoning powers; it is a
matter of instinct.
With these unquestionable facts
plainly admitted by every reasoning human being, there, nevertheless, exists an amazing condition in
the education of our girls.
Motherhood is never mentioned.
One would think from the extreme care with which the subject
is avoided that it must be the
height of vulgarism. Prudes and
the vicious products of prudishness
have ranch to answer for in this
age. Physical miseries, weakness
and death, and crimes against self
of a most revolting character, are
made possible by their vicious interpretations of everything that appertains to the body and its mysteries.
Though their crimes are fearful
in character, though graveyards
are being filled by tlieir victims
other, though thousands, even mil-,
lions of their poor, frail victims
cry out in an agony of mind, soul
and body as they suffer the penalty
•of their sins, made possible by the
ignorance continually forced upon
tbem by Prudes—there is still a
greater crime which must be laid
to the door of the murderers of
human life, and health, and happiness.
to bits on the rocks of Prudishness,
ignorance and fanatical prejudice,
raised from a pure source by the
vicious minds of Prudes, I cannot
help but cry out for justice to women, for the universal promulgation of knowledge that will save
them, not only from others,
from themselves.
A school for training mothers.
Dare any intelligent human being
deny that such a school, if every
girl were compelled to attend,would
raise the standard of human life in
character, in physique, in power
and in beauty beyond our most exaggerated expectations? What
right has a school to pretend to
educate girls, and keep them absolutely .ignorant of self? You may
call this education if you like, but
education—real education—means
above all a training for the duties
of life, and when the most important of all duties are absolutely ignored, branded as vulgar by the
mysterious secrecy constantly maintained, it is a vile slander to call
such training education.
And when it is known that a git
can graduate, can go through
had whizzed past and was gone.
"Why in thunder didn't that
train stop?" yelled the bridegroom.
"Cos you said 'twarn't none of
my bizness. I had to signal if
that train's to stop."
And as the old station-master
but I softly stroked his beard there was
a wicked twinkle in his eye.   *
The Watchman-Warder of Lindsay publishes a letter from J. D.
McPhadyen, teacher, of Emily
Township, in which is given the
substance of an interview with Corporal Dewdy of the same section,
who has recently returned home,
after having seen a couple of years'
service in the American army in
the Philippines. This returned
Canadian gives an appalling account of the brutality shown by
American soldiers in the Philippine
Islands towards natives. In describing the "water cure" (a means
of torture used for the purpose of
extracting information from natives
as to the whereabouts of arms,etc.)
the' Corporal Dewdy says:    "A man is
entire curriculum of our most up-
to-date colleges without a word being said to her or a line being read
in reference to this most important
period and duties of her future life,
it is indeed an araaziug condition,
a shameful confession to be made
in an age supposed to be civilized,
and in a country that pretends to
be modern and progressive.
YoungWomen'sChristian Union!
I call to you! Where are you? Are
you doing your duty? Does not
your bible teach that the human
body was made in the image of
God? Is there anything vulgar or
indecent about God's sacred image?
Wake up, my religious friends!
There never was a work more imperatively your duty than this.
Teach girls of themselves, their
bodies, their duties as women, as
mothers, and your eyes will be
gladdened by men and women,
beautiful, strong and superb as a
result of your efforts.

an abundance of wood for fuel,

and plenty of pure water everywhere. The foothills are covered
with extensive forests of tamarac,

industry is assuming large proportions, and a ready market for this
production is found in Alberta.

Poor, misguided,civilized human
iMiings! How you must suffer!
Deprived of the strong, protecting
instincts of the savage, and denied
the necessary knowledge to replace
it, you become the victim of that
ignorance which prudes call innocence.
Innocence! Yes, Innocence!
•'The strong protectiiiR power of
innocence." You have no doubt
heard of it, but have you ever felt
its influence? There really might
be on occasions somo dement of
truth in the "strong protecting
power of innocence," if one needed
protection only from others, but
when unknown evils stare you in
the face at every turn, when protection is actually needed against
self and the ignorance ol self, how
in Heaven's name is innocence to
lie a protecting power?

captured and suspected of knowing
where some firearms are hidden.
On refusing to tell what he in many
cases did not know,the unfortunate
victim was placed on his back, his
feet and hands held, his nostrils
gagged, a funnel 'placed . in his
mouth, and sometimes as much as
two or three pails of water poured
into his stomach."
This, howeyer, is not the only
method of torture. -Under another
system two sticks were arranged in
the native's fingers, while two
] strong men grasped thc ends and
twisted, thus breaking the iini^K'i-s
and dislocating the joints. On
other occasions the company commander has counted three as a
signal for four men to strike the
victim with their fists. In many
cases the torture ended in the death
of the one punishment. " A certain
native was," says Corporal Dewdy,
"frightened by the 'water cure'
into saying he knew where some
rifles were hidden. Joined to a
small company by a long rope, he
guided them through the mountains
for over a day. He then gave in
that he didn't know where any
rifles were. Addressing a private,
the company commander said,
•Take him behind that bush and
inake"him~cough"npr' We~drsw~&"
veil over the scene that followed.
The man was left a corpse. Another unarmed Filipino who was
captured in Manila claimed to know
where some guns were. Upon ar;
riving at the place, accompauied
by three sentries and a company
commander, he was astonished to
find them gone. Orders were previously given to the sentries to
shoot if they saw their victim leaving the company. Enraged by the I
ill-success of their little expedition.'
the commander walked over to the
man and whispered to him to go.
He accordingly did so and was shot
"A woman selling 'veno1 (a native drink) was ordered by a company commander to sell no more.
She disobeyed and as a punishment
her hair was cut off. Now a Filipino woman'B chief pride is in her
hair, which in every case trails on j
the ground. Still she sold more
veno. Consequently she was niim-,
moned before the officer and two
men were ordered to use whip* ou
her. They refused. Upon be:ng
threatened with court martini, tiny
commenced using the whips very
lightly. At this the officer caught
one of the whips iu a rage nml nxed
it mercilessly, so that th"   woman
was cut, face and body, until   covered with blood."
About two weeks before Corporal
Dewdy left the Philippines he wit- j
neesed another very barbarous
scene on the main street of San
Jose, when four natives who were
destitute of food and had surrendered to the Americans were each
taken and driven, by means of a
rope, and lashed for nearly a mile,
no word of complaint being uttered
by any of the four. It was reported next morning that two of the
four were lying, dead in a ditch outside the town.

Dear little ■bright-eyed Wille,
Always so full of glee,
Always'so very mischievous.
The pride of our home i*--* lie
One bright summer day we found him
Close by the garden wall,
Standing so grave and dignilied
Beside a sunflower tall
His tiny feet he had covered
With the moist and cooling sand,
The stalk of the great, tall sunflower
He grasped with his chubby hand.
When he saw us standing near him;
Gazing so wonderingly
At his baby-ship, he greeted us
With a merry shout of glee.
We asked our darling what pleased him
He replied with a face aglow,
"Mamma, I'm going to be a man,
I've planted myself to grow."

The unhealthy conditiona which exist
among corlaiu classes in Russia, and
which excite the wonder and horror of
travelers, are in large measure the out-
crtnie of poverty and ignorance, and the
severe climate. The very precautions
which the cold compels are unsanitary.
The author of "TheEnipire of the Tsars
and the Russians'draws a picture which
is interesting* but not attractive
The lower the temperature outdoors
the higher it must rise indoors. Behind
their double windows, calked with
oakum and putty for the entire season,
city folks convert their apartments into
hot-houses, where they breathe the
same air as the tropical plants with
which they love to decorate their dwellings. In the log cabin, frequently surrounded with a rampart of stable manure, the peasant and his whole family
crowd around the huge oven, on top of
which they all sleep at night. Out of
this enervating atmosphere people must
emerge into the icy outdoor air.
The climate is not favorable to cleanliness. The houses, every chink of
which is hermetically stuffeil up against
the winter, are dillicult to keep clean
The peasant is condemned to live in an
atmosphere redolent with miasma. The
warm and infected air of his cabin
hatches out myriads of insects, the hut
teems with all kinds of vermin.
Outdoors the tilth thrown out all
round the house vanishes in the snow
to reappear with unimpaired fetidity in
the spring. Even in the cities the
refuse is not always carried away by
the sewers, as these are often shut off
by ice. Rendered harmless by frost,
it keeps, and on the first warm days
fills the streets with .pernicious exhalations.
Nothing can equal the stench of a
Russian thaw in the cities. The snow
which, under the sleigh runners, was
like sand or powdered glass, is transformed into a thick, nauseoua slush,
which pedestrians bring into the houses
on their feet.
The peasant sleeps in his clothes, and
lives night and day in the same sheep-
"BkilTT rrue^hli'takreF^^apor'bathonce"
a week, on Saturdays, as an act of
ritualistic purification. Unfortunately,
however, he is compelled to get into
the same clothes again, teem ing as they
are with vermin. In winter he rarely
takes them off on any other day than
that on which he takes his bath.'
Every village has its vapor bathhouse, wretched wooden hovels, where
vapor is generated by pouring water
on a hot Btone hearth. The vapor bath
often followed by an immersion into
snow or ice-water, is a violent stimulant
under a debilitating climate; the only
ono,besides alcohol,in which the muzhik

His hands are soiled, his throat is bare,
His face is streaked with dirt, and thin,
And many a slip is in the air
He plays upon his violin;
A sadness dwells within his eyes,
The shoes are ragged on his feet,
And scoffers stop to criticize
The little minstrel in the street.
There by the curb he plays away
Where flakes float past and winds blow
And maybe, as the critics say,
He lacks the tutored artist's skill—
But now and then a iittle strain
Played faultlessly and soft and sweet
j Floats up from where he stands out there—
The little minstrel in the street.
Say, ragged little minstrel, why
Must people listen but to hear
The false note, ever passing by
The strain that rises soft and clear?
Oh, it were well with us if we
Might in our own ways sound the sweet
And faultless notes as oft as he—
The little minstrel in the street.

Won't you give me a nod, my brother,
As you journey along life's road?
It would 'waken anew my courage
And lighten my weary load.
Won't you give me a smile, my brother?
, Just the gleam of a kindly eye?
It would make me forget my weakness
And brighten my leaden sky.
Won't you give me a word,  my  brother?
Just a whisper within my ear?
It would kindle anew uiy purpose—
Would one little word of cheer.
Won't you give me your hand,my brother?
Let me clasp it before we part?
It would lighten my load of sorrow
And brighten my heavy heart.
