can be. materially reduced by employ
ing a higher current of 'electricity than
usually used in the electrolytic method.
It is almost an invariable rule that
when the output of a mine iB increased
the. average grade of the ore falls. This
is duo to the fact that with a small
plant of machinery the ore has to be of
higher grade to pay expenses, and
moreover it can be more carefully selected under ground, and yet keep the
plant running through of material
which would remain unmincd if only
fifty tons were called for.
The recently published, report of the
United States assayer shows that the
total output of lead in Montana during
tlie past year aggregated 8,177,(529
pounds. Flathead county produced
3,500,000 pounds o( lead with Meagher
county second in point of production,
with 1900,000 pounds. Silver Bow
county, with its copper production of
210,9(50,175 pounds, produced only 101,-
812 pounds of lead.
According  to  reports   from   Moyie

try. The St. Eugene mine is not doing
much yet, but if it was working at its
full capacity the outwit would be large
enough to keep the Trail and Nelson
smelters busy on lead ore, and shut the
Slocan mines out. The mines of the
Slocan are pooling their product. If
they have a .contract with tho local
smelters, the St, Eugene will have to
stay dark or ship oro out of the country.

The Rambler mine, Wyoming, continues to attract .attention, and during

A. G. Betts, who has been at work on
the electrolytic reduction of lead for
years, has recently been granted a
patent on an improvement of the pro
cess which he recently installed in tlie
Trail smelting plant, by wliich he expects to overcome the lack of density
which electrolytic lead has exhibited.
The claims for the hcav step in the process is that the. electrodeposited'lead is
characterized by substantial purity,
coherency, uniformity of structure
throughout and having substantially
the density and homogeneity of cast
lead, possessing uniformity of structure throughout and practically free
from crystalline form; having substantially the' homogeneity of cast lead
with a density of 11.3, and retaining
the normal structural characteristics
due to electrolysis. It is claimed for
this new process that all the difficulties
which have hitherto been encountered
in the electrolytic reduction of lead will
be overcome, an aim which a number
of chemists and metallurgists have had
for years.
J. E. Bamberger, general manager of
the Daly-West company, is quoted in a,
dispatch from Salt Lake as saying that
a contest is now on between the American Smelting and Refining company
and the silver brokers of London for
the control of the silver market of Jthe
world. He declares that the Smelting
company now has its own agents in
London, and as an e\ idenco of faith In
the future of silver is btiyfng futures on
the metal in the London market, One
reason for his confidence is that there
has been a falling off in the production
of silver in the United States during
recent years. London [silver brokers
have for many years controlled the
price of the metal, ami could move it
up or down to suit their wishes, but
now, if they seek to depress the price by
heavy offerings, tho American company
withdraws its offering*, ami the price
stiffens. If the Londoners attempt to
advance Ihe price, tho American company renews its offerings. In this way
the company lias become a powerful

The placer mining prospectsj are also
good. The work on the Blue Jay has
developed a basin at the hewLof an
ancient canyon and payable gold should
be found here if the. deep sinking propositions ^on the creek carry payable
values. On the ground operated by II.
Howard good gold has been got recently
Tiie clean-up of three lengths of flume
at the ground worked by Raymond
Allen yielded 20 cents to the yard—a
value which would pay well with up-to-
date equipment. On McCulloch creek
the Revelstoke and McCulloch Hydraulic company has its Igiant at work
on old channel ground. A good deal of
coarse gold is being got and the prospects aro most encouraging. On French
creek the consolidation, operated by E.
A. Bradly, has been producing good
gold from the old channel, where virgin

Experience has shown that stocks
based upon industrial enterpriso^have
never beeu equalled for a substantial
money-making investment. A\vay
back in 1H03 a mica mine was discovered
in the state of New Hampshire, tho

few families who all becamo wealthy
from the dividends, aud thu foundation
of many of out' eastern millionaires
was laid by it. Last year the stock
paid over nou per. cent in dividends.

the United States is compelled to import »0 percent of what is used in that

we hear sermons yards in length warning the people to keep away from saloons, poker rooms, race tracks, and
almost every other place if tliey would
avoid disgrace, but never a word about
avoiding churches. Still the reports in
the daily press show that those who
frequent churches are. constantly going
down the pike* to hell and jail. In support of this we notice that one of the most
devout worshippers of St. Thomas has
jus*, got twelve years in jail,, while the
treasurer of a preachers' society in
Boston has skipped with $80,000. For
obtaining money under false pretenses,
Rev. Cowherd has gone to the pen in

Rev. Phillips, a Free Methodist shark

with another woman. In Raleigh,
Rev. Dillard was sentenced for writing
obscene letters to Miss Green. Rev,
C. H. Branhan is wanted in Bluelield
on a charge of killing his wife. Rev.
George Allen, at Morrisville, Pa., has
been sent to the pen for ten years for
stealing chickens, "From Coop to
Pen" would be a good title for one of
his sermons, in Chicago, Rev, Bro-
hcl is charged with tr/ing to kill his
wife. In Arkansas, a Haptist preacher
is in jail charged with assisting a
counterfeiter to escape. In Columbus,
Ohio, Dr, James Lewis preached an
eloquent sermon on Sunday, and the
next da) hammered his wife with a
club until she was insensible. In
Pulla, Mo., Rev. Moneymaker sues
another preacher for stealing his wife's
affections. The balm needed is $5,000.
Rev. Wales, of Boston, has been lined

He also figures as a co-respondent in a

What harm in a little dining,
With bumpers of Dago rpd ?
A song, or a jest, unfolding—
A tale that's not convent-bred?
What harm in a little gazing
In the depths of amorous eyes ?
Life is not all made of sorrow,
Nor we saddest when we sigh.
What harm in a little!amoking—
A cigar or a pipe, perhaps ?
What harm, when the shadows lengthen,
In a cocktail or dram of schnaps?
What harm in the painted paste-boards,
And the chips tliat are red and blueV
What harm in a little guessing
At the speed of a horse or two?
Life is all in the living.
Sieze pleasure before she's lied !
For as a wise man puts it:
You'll be a for long time dead.
Laugh at the day that's past us!
Let us scoff at the days to cornel
But smile on the day that's with us;
For others are "on the hum."

—James Barton Adams.
The fathers (of the church) laid down
as   a   distinct  proposition  that   pious
frauds are justifiable, and even laudable;
and if they had  not  laid  this down,
they would nevertheless have practised
them as   a  necessary consequence of
their   doctrine of exclusive salvation.
Immediately all ecclesiastical literature
became  tainted   with  a   spirit  of the
most unblushing mendacity.   Heathenism was to be combatted,  and  therefore prophesies of Christ  by Orpheus
and the sibyls were forged, lying wonders   were   multiplied,  and   ceaseless
calumnies poured upon those who, like
Julian,   opposed   the  faith.     Heretics
were to be convinced, and therefore interpolations of old writings and complete forgeries were habitually opposed
to the forged gospels.    The veneration
of relics and the monastic system were
introduced, and therefore innumerable
miracles were altribulpd  lo the  bones
of saints or to the prayers of hermits,
and were solemnly asserted by the most
eminent of the fathers. • The tendency
was not confined to  those eastern  nations which l)ad been always most destitute of the sense of truth; it triumphed
wherever thc supreme importance of
dogmas  was   held,    tiener.ilioii  after
generation il   became  more  universal;
it continued till the  very sense of trull)
and  the   very   love   of  truth  seemed
blotted out from the minds of men.

Tho Chicago Interviewer.
Max O'Rell used to tell a slory about
his lirst experience with a Chicago
newspaper reporter. The genial French-
man had just arrived at the Grand Pacific hotel, and had retired to his room
lo rest after a fatiguing journey, In
order lo get llie most possible out of a
short siesta he took oil' his clothes and
got into bed. The day was a hoi one,
and for belter circulation of air he left
the door slightly ajar, plating a chair
against it for security, Shortly utter-
ward he was awakened from his nap
by it knock at his door, and he drowsily
ini|uired who was there.
"Mr,# litiitik, of The Daily So-and-
So," replied the reporter.
"I cannot be disturbed now," called
O'Rell, "Vou will have to come
again, I cannot see you now. I am
iu bed."
Notwithstanding thi* injunction, the
humorist saw the door pushed open,

Wm. C. Lawrence writes The
Ledge "to correct a statement appearing in the issue of the 18th, in
which I am placed in an unenviable
light." The article referred to
related to the charges preferred by
Mr. Lawrence against Sclvoolmaster
Pedlar, and Mr. Lawrence writes
a communication 1000 words in
length to explain his position in
the matter. The School Board
properly heard these cnarges and
dismissed the case, exonerating Mr.
Pedlar, therefore we cannot see
that anything can be gained by devoting a column and a half to this
communication. If, however:, it
will make anybody feel better, we
will declare positively that we are
guilty, and Schoolmaster Pedlar is
guilty, and the Board of Trustee-?,
are guilty, and everybody connected
with the educational, judicial,
and governmental departments is
guilty, of misrepresentation, lying,
and of cruelty, and that the child
was cruelly beaten—beaten so
severely that her finger swelled,
and "her ring could not be removed
until the swelling was reduced."

Silver continues steady at an advance of about four cents since the be-
girning of the year. There is no likelihood of a decrease nor a diminution in
the demand, for China and India continue to absorb one-half the silver produced in the world.
And here a problem presents itself
which baffles the calculations of the
most expert statisticans and students of
political economy. Where or by what
means is the silver, the millions in small
coins which is distributed yearly among
the hordes of the east,absorbed? For it
disappears; is completely swallowed up
in barter between the teeminu multitudes of these two Oriental countries
and even grim Famine fails to bring it
forth from places of ite accumulation, if
it is accumulated. Whatever the
theory advanced regarding its absorption it never returns to the channels of
trade, and its place must continue to be
sunp i d yearly.
Gold is never a medium nf exchange
among the poor millions who inhabit those Oriental countries. The
small silver coins will ever be their
money and silver coins will always be
used with gold in every other country
in iho world.
The attempt to demonetize silver has
acted as a boomerang ou the very
nations who advocated the measure,
and they are now clamoring for an international conference to place a fixed value on the silver dollar. Such attempts
are not new in the history of the world,
but whenever that has occurred, silver
became a mere article of commere, and
was subject to fluctuations. It cannot
remain so and yet, be a money metal
without disasttous consequences to
trade relations between naitors.
Sliver has again reinstated itself.
Backed by the inexorable law of supply
and demand it will retain its place as a
money metal and a fixed value must be
placed on the dollar,—The Mining and
Engineering Review.
