Outlook much Brighter
Prospects of good times in tho
silver-lead en nips of tlie Kootenay!-'
havo greatly brightened since the
"assurance has come from Ottawa
that tlie Dominion government will
give aid to the producers in the
su iii of $500,000 a year. From al 1
sections where lead mines are being
developed, * words ' of cheer are
heard, and there is no doubt that
mines which have in recent years
been operated only in the development stage, will in a short time be
thrown open and ore turned out at
their full capacity.
, Senator. Turner,* principal owner
of the Sullivan group, in East
Kootenay, is credited with saying
to the Cranbrook Herald: "The
proposed bonus will enable Sullivan
company to start mine immediately
and to complete the smelter this
season."
Reports of a like nature come
from other camps. J. L.Parker,
of the North "Star mine, says:
"As long as the bonus lasts, we
may consider that we will have
good times for the following reasons:
1st.   Tlie mines
shipping condition,
,JiQkjihippingH_wilL
that are in a
but which are
naturally—ship,
their ores.
2nd. Those in a developing condition, but not" developing, will
naturally develope.
3rd. Those properties which
ha ve a favorable surface m i neral
condition, will naturally either
hive some work dono on them, or
the owners will find a more favor-
ablo market for them than has
been tho case the past two years.
4th. ■ Encouragement will be
given to the prospector to limit for
new finds, probably resulting in the
later opening up of a new district
or two,
5th. The wage expenditure will
return to the old stand ml of about
82,500,000 per annum instead of
less than 8500,000.
0th. Tho merchants, who have
been reducing their stock, will replenish it, resulting in tlio merchants emt getting fresh order*,
and giving tho railroads more
work.
7th. The smelters will have live
furnace*, instead of dead ones, and
this will give employment to more
men, and through this certain ore*
available for Amies can lie used mid
purchased by them which would
otherwise have to remain in the
ground. This latter feature is an
important one, giving employment
to more men.
The amount of bonus to be di«-
tributed in five years time on the
ba«is of $15 per ton, wilt be about
12,500,000, and as the mino owners
will spend $10,000,000 more during
the same |>eriod, than they would
havo dono under the past conditions, it wi'l im seen that the government nld, although tardy, will
mean a direct aid to the district of
two million, live hundred thousand
dollars, besides an indirect aid of
ten million.
The following will be the amount*
of bonus on the difltar ent grade* of
ore that each grade will eArn:
SO per cent lead or*, $4.05 per ton.
40 per cent lead ore, $5.40 per ton.
50 per cent lead ore, $0.75 per ton.
(10 per cent lead ore, $10.80 per ton.
John   A.   Pfni»-H   te   twrmrtwti   *-u*
saving: MWe t'Xpeel to start upth*
til. Kngene thi* summer by reason
of the benefit from the lead bounty.

tiaiw* per month. The concen-
trotea were running 65 per cent

Hymn X. White of the Slogan
Star said: "Tlie mine owner* are

Dominion government, Tite efttet
of fhe boniu \xM cwUiul) be Writ--
(kill. Thtt Hkymit Star, whiilt
was sldpning to th*» American
Smelting * Refining Co. and mm-
icnded shipments some time ago,
ins entered into a contract to ship
to the Trail smelter and will start
shipments soon, It is reported the
bonus will be paid only on lead ore
mined, smelted and refined in Canada; By shipping to the Trail
smelter we will receive all the
bonus coming to us.
"I have no doubt the increased
output stimulated by the bonus
will take up all of the grant of
8500,000 per annum made by the
government. Indirectly the bonus
will be of still greater benefit to the
province as it will bring several
millions of British and American
money into the Slocan and Kootenay lead mines for investment."
There are other reasons why the
silver-lead mine owners should feel
jubilant. Following on the news
that the United States government
would almost certainly fix a ratio
for silver for coinage in the Phil-
ipines, comes the news that •* lead
famine threatens in London. The
normal British consumption is
270,000 tons, of which, about 25,-
000 tons is produced in the north
of England and in Scotland. The
balance is imported from Australia,
-Gai'thginaHn-Spnin7Tind~BaTiTTnriir
Greece, of which places Australia
ships the •greatest amount. Owing
to the low prices which iiavo prevailed for lead in London, and for
its sister product, silver, th6 Australian mines have been closing
down one by one until a heavy
shortage threatens. A-despatch
from London says the probable
shortage will bo 100,000 tone.
All this welcome new-s seems to
give the Slocan a brighter outlook
than.it has enjoyed since boom
days.
Zinc, too, is adding encouragement. It has lately been ruling
higher in New York than since the
American war. And, on tlio understanding that the United States
will fix a ratio for Philippine coinage thnt will mako the white metal
worth 05 cents an ounce, silver li ts
jumped from 40 to 53 cents.
Thero is already felt the scarcity
of laboring men. Many of the big
properties are wanting more. This
shortage will not be long felt, for
tho Miner's Unions will soon get
good men to come in from the outside.
There is now felt among the
mine owners, more than over liefore, the need of a stronger organization than the make-shift organization that has been known as the
Miue Owners' Association. It has
I»ecn of little practical benefit, and
has stood in the way of a better
organization. We believe it is the
intention to reorganize on lines
adopted by similar associations in
tite silver-lead camps across the
line. Under such an organization
there would be no chance for the
smelters to play the "cinch." The
mine owners have the metal, and
if necessary could build their own
^inciter.
The Dominion government ha*
done enough for the mine owners
—thoy lutve been given what they
asked for. It is now up to the
mine owner* to do something for
themselves, if they would get the
benefit of tlie government aid. The
way to do ft is by using tho power
that is thelr'a.

eral industry of the United States
having received S15.S39.913. This
amount has swelled the dividends
for tho half year ending June 30ch
to 881,143,951, a very gratifying division ..of profits for .which 135 corporations are responsible; this, is
especially satisfactory considering
the fluctuations in copper, silver
and other important products.
These dividends have gone not only
to Americans, but a substantial
amount has also been distributed
among foreigners, particularly
British investors.
THK   NORTH   STAR,
In his annual report of the North
Star mine J. L. Parker states that
during the past year that property
shipped 3,426 tons of ore which
averaged 29.5 ounces of silver and
36 per cent lead to the ton. With
a $15 freight and treatment rate—
which J. L. Parker thinks is "ifair
and reasonable (for Slocan mine
owners), with prices at the outside
figure during the year of 81.50 for
lead and 52 cents for silver, the
North Star would have about $S
for mining, putting oro 'on cars,
and management of the miue.
Even a clever man like Mr. Parker
must find it 'difficult to produce
dividends ai such figures.

Yesterday was the monthly payday at thc Granby mines, the

Snowshoe's payday is next Wednesday, when the amount paid out is
expected to run close to $10,000 for

A number of representatives of
the Miner's. Unions of the Slocan
gathered at Now Denver last Saturday to discuss the advisablity of
putting an independent labor candidate in the field at the approaching election. As a result of the
meeting the following has been
issued:
"A call is ..hereby, issued for a
convention,'to take-place in New
Denver on the 1st day of August,
1903, for the purpose of nominating
a candidate to contest the Slocan
Riding in the interest of the Labor
Party at the forthcoming Provincial election.
"The basis >of rep esentation to

are seeking mining ventures of

have been attracted by the phenomenal finds on Poplar creek.
As to his mission the Doctor said:
"Some of my people are already
interested in the Handy group on
Lynch creek and we are so well
pleased with the future prospects
that we aro again in the market for
meritorious investments in the
same territory. The developments
on the Handy group have been especially gratifying nnd ample funds
are being provided by my people for
tho opening of those properties now

spite of the fact that the demands of the engineers
were just and reasonable, decision was given against

and not His drummers, had tried the case.    On top

of hours that an engineer gets $18, these ministers of
the meek, lowly and loving Christ ask $1,000.   A
more servile bid for the favor of mammon has seldom %
been made, even in Chicago.    In their report the
parsons state that "We accepted the responsibility
as a matter of public duty."   Their bill indicates
this, and their decision indicates that they are out *^

most secluded spots on earth—and if
man has secured a foothold you can
tind also apples and cabbage; if either
is absent it will be apples.
This is a  wise provision of nature,
for if man  is compelled to get away
from his base of supplies he can manage to have with him bread, apples,
nuts and cabboge, and  in  that combination he  haa  food  for brain, muscle
and nerve, and neithee last*nor least, a
diet antidotal to sickness.    When man
is eating these foods he  is not taking
into his system an enemy in disguise.
Cabbage is king of vegetables.   Raw
is the best way to eat it, but if cooked
by steam without  having anything added lo it  while  cooking, it  will  come
from the cooker "sweet  and  delicious
and can be fed  to a nursing babe with
impunity.    It  is good  enough,  when
cooked in this way, to eat without the
addition of a single condiment, but if
desired  olive oil  and  lemon juice can
be added to taste, or any dressing the
consumer may desire.    There is nothing the matter with cabbage; tho trouble is. this ignorance of the people about
the best way to prepare it for consumption.    As an  addition to raw salads il
is always in order.    In summer the
need of cabbage and apples is not felt;
these old  veterans and slandbys can
take a rest while a variety of fruit and
vegetables of shorter life are in demand.
Cabbage   sprouts,  mustard   and beet
lops in equal parts make most excellent
greens, but don't convert them into a
poison by cooking them with   meat.
When vegetarians are afraid to defend
cabbage, send   for me.    I  liave been
called "old cabbage doctor" so long 1
am entitled to a pension.    When the
kind of vegetables is stabbed at home
or by a friend, or should-be friend, I
am desirous of asking thai vegetarian
if he has a friend, a better friend, in
all the vegetable kingdom ? Where can
be  found   a vegetable   that, if eaten
daily, conveys more of an antidote to
old age than cabbage.    If thc young
lady vegetarians who imagine themselves insulted by being called cabbage
eaters knew more about the properties
of vegetables and less aboul sentiment,
more about the detrimental effects  of
starch and breads and less about what
they think vegetarianism means; more

Did you ever eat a horned toad fried
irj tar or a bandicoot in molasses ? I
presume not. Therefore I will speak
of something else.
I used to know a barber who had a
regular set of questions for each customer. Every time a certain youth
came in he asked him all about the
health of his folks. He knew them all
by name and enquired about each one
separately. He always wound up wilh
the query: "And how is your good old
father ?" By and by the old man died
in due and legal form, but-~the barber
forgot to revise his list of questions.
Every week he asked theyouth about
the folks and wound up the same
old way and every week the youth explained that his father had died on
on such and such a dale. "And how.s
your good old father ?" asked the barber for the steentlv time and the youth
replied: "Oh paw he's still dead!"
This same barber had a disagreeable
habit of always poking his cold linger
in your ear.
I   like a sociable   barber   who endeavors to make one see the bright
side of life while he gently bul firmly
robs him.    I met several in St. Louis
recently but it was a pleasing, fat com-
plexioned individual  that  did  most of
the drawing   on   my   bank   occouiit.
When I took off my collar he laid it
carefully away in a lil tie closet and said
something nice "about my 99-cent tie
pin.    I smiled and he marked I5 cents
in a book.    I told him I only wanted a
shampoo, but he said he  would consider that his life had been a failure if
I didn't let him trim  off the Irouseled
lace curtain effect  around  the edges.
He pleaded so hard ahd looked into my
face so sweetly that I reluctantly consented and he added  50 cents  to  my
account.    Then he  told me I had the
finest head of hair   lie   ever   cut—so
silky and so long and  luxuriant—and
asked what I did to keep it so lovely.
That gave me a sort of pleased exhilarated effect along my spine and 1
smiled.     The   smile   assured  him   1
would stand for 10 cents more and he
put it down.   Then he told me a story
about a friend of his who shaved a dead
man.    The stiff was full of alcoholic
gas and when  the barber pressed an
"elbow-"otT""iis—stomach-it-bU
bubbles and he upset a piano getting
away.    I think the  story cost me "a
quarter.
Then he told me I ought to have the
ends of my hair singed to keep it from
falling out and preserve it for future
generations to trifle with, I explained
that I had to catch a train and would
rather strew a few stray locks along
the boulevard from there to the depot
than to get left on the platform with a
wealth of shedless singed hair and an
expiring ticket iu my hand. Of course
you wilt understand that I mean the
ticket would be in my hand and not
thc singed hair. I loltl him also that
I was not married and hence no future
generations were dependent upon me
for hair as yet. He yielded to my eloquence and refrained from starting the
proposed conflagration. I never did
like to have my hitir afire. It's bad
enough to have one's heart afire and no
insurance. He put some sort of dope
on my head and curried it with a wool
carder and turned 11 hydrant on me
and then dried it. I asked him if he
ever accidentally drowned a man, ami
seeing that 1 was a humorist he put
down (mother quarter.
Ivxpcnses were piling up, but I was
reckless. Barbers have lo live. One
can't expect litem to think out nice
hprn-hc* giatih. The sordid worKl
is too materialistic. Why should we
not huy our compliments as we Uo our
ftwh and stovewood ? If Ihe bootblack
aiiya your nock** arc pretty, give him a
nickel. Then he will bow Io you and
he happy and you can walk away like
a lord. Suppose il in your last nickel—
who cure*. I saw lhat the barber
really enjoyed working on my face, %o
I let him -shave me mid made no remonstrance when he started in 10 give
manage.    I hail been sitting up
the various charges. Every time you
go into a St. Louis . barber shop they
open an account with you in their ledger. The niggers wanted to put in
new shoestrings for me at the small
cost of ten cents, but I told them I was
in such a rush I would have to ask
them to accopt the price as a gift and
let me off. The head barber wanted
to put some nice tonic, on my hair to
make it grow. He said it would
small nice and make all my friends feel
better, but I remonstrated and he reluctantly put down tlie bottle and ten
cents. It costs ten cents every time
they pick up a bottle in St. Louis. After
one o'clock on Sundays and holidays it
costs twenty.
While the fat-complexioned gentleman combed my hair 1 told him about
my experience in Chester the night before. The electric light went out and
I had to get shaved by candle light.
-The barber set a row of candles on
tlie edge of the wall case and then
shaved off an eyebrow on the dark side
and left my ear full of soap. I felt—
stretched out therewith candles all
about me—like the principal figure at
an Irish wake. Three of the barbers
laughed at the incident and said it was
surely an odd experience, and the
scorekeeper put down five cents for
each of them.    With  the assistance of
three niggers and an additional outlay j Why yoa should Day
of thirty cents I acquired possession of
my coat and  hat and umbrella and
fled down the station  platform just in
time to run intc a closed gate and watch
.through the iron  bars  while  my train
pulled out and left me with a slowly
expiring ticket in my vest  pocket.—C.

REASONS WHY.
A correspondence has been taking
place in an exchange with regard to
the reasons why men don't go to church
and, as we know something about it,
we beg lo offer the following additional
reasons:
Because the church ..won't'- come to
them.
Because Ihe missus goes there.
Because they want to smoke.
Because they are not allowed lo show
their new hats.
Because they cannot stand a man
having all the conversation to himself.
Because they want exercise.
Because they want rest.
Because   it  reminds them of their
wedding day.

A NOBLE RECORD.
4>      While one  labor organization after the other is T
X  &0'n£ on a strike, the encouraging news reaches us <«g»
4*  from Butte, Montana, that the Miners' union of that *f*
jr. city, now celebrating the twenty.fifth anniversary of ^
«|>  its organization, has never been involved in a strike
4*  and, in the long period of its existence, has always
X  succeeded in maintaining harmonious relations with
4* employers.    This is certainly a record to be proud *|*
T  cfone that is decidedly  unique in  the annals of ^
«§»  American labor.    Paradoxical as it may seem, the <|»
miners have never demanded and never been granted ^
an increase in wages since the organization of their 4-
union.    Their employers have, however, voluntarily 'jj*
conceded shorter hours and made various noteworthy ^
sanitary improvements in the mines.    The union is ^>

A certain Yankee woman tlie wife of
a former representative in congress and
minister abroad, who now ■aims at
social leadership in the most exclusive
and top-lofty, circles ol Washington,
D. C, is noted for her love ot" display
and her penchant for wearing about all
the jewels she can bear up under. One
recent night she gave a dinner. Several
members of the diplomotic set were
present. Madam was in high feather
and she also wore a diamond tiara and
several sitings of pearls around her
neck. During the evening she complained of feeling a bit chilly and told
one of the servants to call her maid.
When the maid appeared she is said to
have shivered a trifle, and exclaimed:
"Susette, 1 am so cold; please get me'

who rested contentedly on the wildly
throbbing bosom'of her love-consumed
organist could not help herself. She
simply had to give and receive kisses.
An intoxicating wave of mysterious
emotion invaded her little fluttering
heart when the full lips of the organist
were seeking for her own. Considering all the circumstances of the case,
and the well-known foibles and susceptibilities of feminine nature, the
Chicago woman cannot be blamed for
succumbing to the temptation which
came to her. Her husband must be
an unfeeling monster. If he were
what he should be, he would take infinite pleasure in kissing womanly lips

GOLDKN   PKKBV   CREEL.
The Ft. Steele Prospector says
that the country about Perry creek
and its tributaries is to assume considerable! importance in the near
future as a gold mining camp.
This, it says, is attested by the ore
bodies which are now being developed, and the persistent work now
being done on the placer mines in
that vicinity.
The Kootenay Perry Creek Mining Company is now sinking a shaft
to bedrock to test its ground. Albert Banks is at Montreal, purchasing a stacker and washer.
Operations with the steam dredge
have ceased for the present owing
to lack of necessary machinery to
handle the gravel. Operations will
be resumed on the arrival of the
stacker and washer.
The Perry Creek Mining and
Hydraulic Co. is now constructing
a ditch and flume three miles and
a half in length. The ditch at the
intake will be 800 feet. A large
syphon 1200 feet in length has been
built across a ravine 175 feet deep.
The sawmill recently installed by
this company, is doing good wOrk,
cutting about 10,000 feet of lumber
daily. Thirty men are uow era-
ployed, aud several teams are engaged in excavating the long ditch.
Development work has been resumed on the Roaring King group
of claims situated at the head of
Perry creek. Frank Williams with
a small force went up to the mine
last week. Work will be continued
during the summer months.
It is reported that work will be
resumed in the near future on the
Badger and Red Mountain group
of claims. This is a free milling
proposition, now under bond to an
eastern syndicate. A ten-stamp
will be installed, and it is believed
that the property will develop into
a big gold producer. ,
NKW   ZINC   PLANT.
The new zinc smelter which was
blown in last month at Pueblo
marks a new era in the metallurgical development of Colorado. The
plant is under the cuntrol of the
United States Zinc Co., and cost
nearly $1,000,000. The furnaces
have been erected cjose to the
smelting plant of the American
Smelting and Refining Co. When
running at its full capacity the zinc
Hraelter~wiii'—g!ve~'6iHploynieiit—to~-
ncarly 500 men. It will take probably three months for the plant to
reach its full working strength.
The first bit of spelter ever produced iu the Btate was cast when
tlie furnace was placed in commission and from this date forward
zinc ores that hitherto have only
found a market in Germany will be
reduced at home. The inauguration of this important new enterprise means that ores which a few
years ago were not only considered
worthless but a serious drawback
to the operation of silver mines,
now havo a distinct market value
and can be Bold near the mining
district.
The plant is one of the most
modern in the world, and was erected under tho supervision of the
experts of Germany and America.
It embrace* all the latest devices,
and has a capacity for smelting 200
ton* per day.
Tho Pueblo works were opened
under the direction of William
Shulte, of Overpelt, Germany, ono
of tho best zinc metallurgists in
Europe. Mr. Schulto will leave on
his homeward voyage in a fow days.
Expert* In zinc smelting wero imported from Frankfort, Germany,
and will remaiu in the employ of
the company.
