GOLI>   AND    KILVKIt    PRODUCTION.
The director of the mint has
made public his annual statement
of the approximate distribution by
producing states and territories of
the product of gold and silver of the
United States for tho calendar year
1903 as follows:
The new freight rate on ziuc ores
to the old country wiil make a very
material improvement in the zinc
situation in the Slocan. We have
it on the authority of A. C. Garde,
manager of the Payne, that the reduction to $13 a ton will induce
several Slocan properties, which are
in a position to ship large quantities
of zinc, to put large forces of men
to work. Heretofore the rate has
been $16 per ton, and the new rate,
in addition to the freight reduction
of $3, also permits shipment of ore
in bulk, which means a further saving to the producer of something
like S3 per ton.
The freight and treatment rate to
Iola, Kas., has been $11 per ton,
but the Iola concern refused to pay
for the silver in the ore. The old
country smelters will pay for the
silver, and they make a further saving in the treatment of the ore and
pay a better price, which, with the
reduction in freignt rates, will give
the miner much better returns than
he has ever received from the Arn-
ieric¥nT?mTi5ernC ~
The new rate-will have the effect
of opening the old country market
to Sloean zinc, and, Mr. Garde
thinks, as soon as it becomes kuown
that the rate has been reduced, the
Belgium and Antwerp smelters will
send buyers into the Slocan, and
that a market will at once be established at a good figure, for all the
zinc we can produce.

Sandon's strenuous season has j
opened.    The opening was some-J
what impromptu, but it came with ]
the usual rush.     It came unannounced, yet not unexpected, and
when it was over it was found that
one horse only was carried away,
and it turned up the same evening
at  the   milk   ranch—a   horse on
somebody.
Sunday is-always interesting in
Sandon. Everybody quits shoveling snow and goes to church. Last
Sunday was an exception: everybody went from church to shovel
snow. It was a record day for
snowslides. The Noble Five came
down twice in 45 minutes; the
Madison made two runs in an hour,
the Rambler came down the same
track as two years ago, and two
smaller slides skated down Payue
mountain, close to town.
The K. &. S. failed to get in to
Sandon Sunday, owing to slides on
the-traokT-anc!~i t—was—n early-m i d~
night Monday before it got through;
The Noble Five slide came down
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
The Powers' train of rawhiders,
bringing ore from the Reco, barely
escaped being caught. Had they
been a few minutes earlier, they
would have been carried down to
death.
As soon as the news reached the
camp a party was organized and
took horses to the scene of the
slide to clear the trail. When
nearly across the track of the Madi-
son slide it started. Sandv Me-
Donald, who is in charge of the
Powers packing outfit, was carried
off his horse, but had fortunately
twisted the bridle reins around his
wrist, and was pulled out of the
snow by the plunging of the horse. I
He was slightly injured by the
horse trampling upon his arm.
Sandy believes he is slide proof.
Two years ugo he was caught in
the McGuigan slide, when the
Powers camp was wiped out.
The new bunkhouse at the
American Boy had a close call the
same afternoon. A slide took away
the crok tent which was being
used during construction, taking
the cook, W. Keil, about 50 feet
down the mountain. Nels Munson.
the teamster, dug him out. A
moment later Munson was carried
500 feet by the slide. Keil rushed
after him, shovel in hand, a :d
tried to dig Munson out, but had
to climb back to camp for a pick,
so hard was the snow packed about
his limb*.

ore in the stopes and waiting for
somebody to pay them to take it out.
We are pleased to see the Nelson
News take this view, with us, of the
question, and in furtherence of our
remarks last week in this connection we reprint an editorial from
the News of Saturday:
"The rate of $13 per ton for zinc
ores consigned to Antwerp from
British Columbia mines is welcomed
by the mine owners and will be of
material assistance to them. It is
S3 lower than the former rate, and
besides, the shipper was formerly
required to sack his ore or concentrates, as the case might be, while
now the ore or the concentrates can
be shipped in bulk. The cost of
sacking was about $1.50 per ton.
The cut therefore means a reduction
of about $4.50 per ton less than the
old rate.
' 'In another column will be found
a communication from Alfred C.
Garde in which he states that the
cut made in zinc ore rates will add
materially towards the solution of
the zinc problem in British Columbia.
"While the reduction is a step in
the right direction and one made by
the Canadian Pacific for the purpose
of fostering the production of zinc
in this country, for which the com-
ments a subscriber complains that
they take up too much space. If
there is a lack of advertisements it
is unpopular and the people won't
have it. If we attend church regularly .they say we go for effect. If
we stay away from church they say
we are monstrously heathenish. If
we accept an invitation to a wedding they say we are only invited
to "write it up." If we go to the
opera house they say we go on free
tickets. If we are seen upon the
streets too often they say we are
neglecting our business. If we
avoid going on the street they say
we don't hustle around after the
news. If we publish a man who
has brought disgrace upon his family the friends of the family never
forgive us. If we, out of goodness
of heart, decline to say anything on
the subject, the man's enemies are
disappointed, aud we are branded as
white livered cowards.

Without the mouth the politician

married life would be a summer
dream, and the dude would lose
half his attraction.
The cheerful liar of the Albany
Herald is responsible for the following: It is reported that a Benton
County farmer who stirs early these
winter mornings also wanted his
son to get up early and go to work.
The boy had a habit of answering
"yessir" and going to sleep again.
On this occasion last week the
father, to make no mistake, called
the boy, got the "yessir," and then
slid upstairs, turned down the
covers and gave the person a good
spanking. It happened that on
that nigbt the hired girl had been
given the boy's room. When the
tumult was over the old man sat
down behind the barn and drafted a
written apology to the hired girl.

pany is entitled to credit, the real
solution,lies, we believe, in the erection of plants in the Kootenays for
the treatment of these ores. If E.
A. Ashcroft, for iustance, could be
induced to put up a plant for the reduction of zinc ores by the chlorine-
smelting process, we believe it
would solve the problem much more
satisfactorily and to the greater satisfaction of the miners than the reduction of the freight rates
between here and Antwerp. Zinc
ores could be treated here 'it a very
slight advance on the cost of the
same work in England, where the
process is now in successful use.
With the home plants reducing the
zinc ores tho $13 per ton, which has
now to be paid out for the transpor*
tation from British Columbia to
Antwerp, could be saved. The true
solution of the zinc problem is home
plants for the reduction of the ores.''

THE LEDGE, NEW DENVER, B.C., JANUARY 21, 1904.
AT   CRIPPI.fi   CREEK.
The following notice, addressed
to, miners, was posted at Cripple
Creek, Colo., last week: "It has
be^n decided in many courts that
members of organized labor are not
vagrants. Keep your union cards;
refuse to be driven away from your
house. If compelled to leave by
force of arms, union men are advised to return immediately to
Cripple Creek district.' The Western Federation of Miners will provide for all striking miners and
their families." The notice was
signed by president Moyer, of the
Western Federation.
President Moyer and Secretary
Haywood of the Western Federation of Miners, issued a statement
in which they declare the .strike in
Cripple Creek district "is not
broken, though the republican administration has spent nearly $1,
000,000 of the state's money to
subserve the corporations and make
good their ante-election pledges.''
The statement denies that any
rebellion or insurrection exists and
contends that every constitutional
right of the people has been grossly
violated by governor Peabody and
his military subordinates
the people to develope the natural
resources of the country with profit or presidents will step off the
face of the earth. If a man does
not prosper he can move, but a railroad is there to stay.
"Some reference has been made
today to the building of empires,
and it is only a week ago that I
was called an empire builder and. a
dreamer of oriental dreams.
"I want to remark in passing
that some of these dreams have
come true. Your prosperity has
been more marked in the past few
years than in any time during the
last twenty years.''
Mr. Hill strongly urged reciprocity with Canada.
TO   CUKK   CONSUMPTION.
A preliminary meeting, with the
object of forming a British Columbia Association for the prevention
and cure of tuberculosis, has been
held. A Constitution and By-laws
are drawn up and was submitted
to a general meeting held in
Victoria on January 20th. It is
hardly necessary to point out how
urgent this great question is, and
when we are reminded that Canada
{loses 8,000, United States over 100,-
After referring to the vagrancy 1000 and the world 2,000,000 human
order issued by the military commander at Cripple Creek the statement says: "The membets of the
Western Federation of Miners on
strike in the Cripple Creek district
are receiving all necessary means of
support from a fund which they
have helped to create, and we challenge the ria;ht of anyone to deny
them that privilege."
Governor Peabody announced today that the troops will soon be
withdrawn from Cripple Creek. "I
think the civil authorities will be
able to cope with the situation," he
said.

The MacArthur-Forrest cyanide
process patents are not valid except
t i.i at in which they apply to the
precipitation of gold from cyanide
solutions bv zinc filaments.
Galena, sulphide of lead, is but
slowly attacked by cyanides, but
all its sulphur combines with cyanogen to form sulphocyauogen,
while the lead comes into the solution as a hydrate.
Bullion produced by the cyanide
proeess varies according to character of ore treated. Bullion of
a pureness of 950 fine may be
given ih one mill, but another can
obtain not to exeeed 750 fine.
The best showing made to date
in the precipitation of gold by zinc
in cyanif le practice was 96 per cent.
Complete precipitation of gold by
zinc is yet, therefore, to be attained.
Zinc shavings for use in cyanide
work for the precipitation of gold
are cut very thin, in cases being
cut .1-1260 inch thick by 1-32 inch
wide, and one pound of zinc so
parted will cover a surface of 1,630
square feet.
Those Clarksville people who
killed a negro while the circus per-
formance was in progress are callous-hearted indeed. It's almost as
bad as making a boy cut wood
Christmas eve or hiding a woman's
best dress on millinery opening day.
The Submarine, the most low-
down newspaper on earth, after an
absence of several weeks again arrives at our exchange table. The
editor finds it so hot at Coachella,
wtyjre the paper is published, that
it is absolutely necessary tnat he
abandon the plant for the summer
season. It is called low-down because it is published at a point
which is seventy-six feet below sea
level.
It is estimared that the total out-
put^oJLmiivea^andJoxests_of B. C
for 1903, will reach §21,000,000 in
value. Of this the Rossland mines
produced $4,000 000; Boundary
mines 83,000,000, Slocan mines $1,-
000,000, Atlin mines 81,000,000.
The East Kootenay coal product is
valued at $2,000,000, and that of
Vancouver Island at $3,000,000,
and the total value of lumber and
shingles is placed at $5,500,000.
The country editor does it best
after all. The Belleville (Kan.)
Telescope thus focuses an article
on a contemporary: "From time
immemorial it has been customary
for ants and ileas and ilies and fools,
■scoundrels and scalawags and
skunks, Jan uses, jackasses and
Judases, lizards, leeches and lice,
lo assail mankind in general, and
their superiors in particular." How
often this applies to certain alleged
newspaper men in the Pacific Northwest.

In the absense of a minister, Judge
James F. Read, who was born and lived
in Kentucky before moving- to Kansas,
was once unexpectedly called upon to
say a few words at the burial, near
Fort Smith of a man who was comfortably well off in worldly possessions,
but neglectful of hia spiritual welfare.
"My friends," the judge said solemnly,
"we are gathered to day to pay a final
tribute to our friend who has already
Bolved the mysteries of the great hereafter. He did not have the reputation
of aireligious man, and yet he lived the
life of a noble Kentucky gentleman.
He had good hosees, and he  ran 'em.
He had good seegare, and he smoked
'em. He had good whisky, and he
drank it. He had good game cocks,
and he fit 'em, for such is the kingdom
of beaven."

The United States is now the

tons of coal for every man, woman

powder the new 40-caliber, 12-inch

of Harveyized steel armor at a distance of a mile and a half.
A well proportioned tube boiler
should have about 11 and not less
than ten square feed of effective
heating surface per horse power. An
ordinary tubular boiler should have
about 15 square feet.
One of the finest free gold specimens found lately is that owned by
George Trebilcox, of Crass Valley,
Cal., who discovered it at the Maryland mine. The gold is embedded
in pure white quartz and is a most
attractive specimen.
Sandstones absorb moisture more
quickly in the direction of the bedding or grain, and, accordingly,
sandstone blocks, when used in
buildings, should be placed with
the bedding horizontal. In this position the stone will also stand the
greatest pressure.
With a population of 3,000,000
Switerland is without any coal supply of her own. None of her rivers
are navigable, ond all her coal imports have to be brought in by rail,

Grindstoues are made from an
even-grained, rather friable sandstone, and are of different degrees

enough to yield in the grinding, the

the worn metal.
The waste in the cutting of sheet

California has produced, up to
the end of 1903, $1,400,000,000
worth of gold, the greater part of
this enormous wealth having been
extracted from auriferous ground.
There is much of a similarity in
California and Victoria, Australia,
as regards gold production, Victoria, according to published statistics, having produced in gold to
end of 1903 the vast sum of 01,-
350,000,000, and, like California,
mainly from placer mines.
Fifty years ago every town in
Cornwall was a busy and prosperous
centre-of-mining—industry. JThe-
copper and tin mines employed
thousands of men, paying more than
£20,000 per month in wages. Today less than 50 mines throughout
the country are working, and only
five of these are on full time and
paying a profit. The St. James'
Gazette announces that American
enterprise and capital within a year
will set every mine busily working.
It says that New York and Chicago
financiers are amalgamating the
mines into a trust. The ground
has been completely covered by
their surveyors, and it is expected
that within a year the whole mining industry of the country will be
in American hands.
BOOZK   AND   PARSONS.
Ed. of The Ledge: Dear Sir:—
I notice a long letter in the Winnipeg Free PreaB from a parson named
Lewis railing at the liquor business.
He says that liquor is a poison, and
should be sold as such. He could
have gone further and said
that everything is a poison (even
salvation) when wo get too much of
it. Liquor like beef is a good thing
provided you do not take too much.
When the world gets wised up
properly it will not suffer from too
much drink or the whininge of parsons. We need more education
upon right living, aud the art of
self-control.     Gkorgk Horton.
AND   NOTHING   MORK.
One day last week while sad and
dreary, as we wended weak and
w»»ry across the unsvvept floor; we
heard, at first, a gentle tapping,
then it become an earnest rapping,
at our sanctum door. "Come ini"
we said; while yet we pondered, aud
in silence still we wondered what
for us could be in store; then the
doorknob gently turning in he
walked—our cheek was burning, as
we thought of crimson gore. "Are
you the man who does the writing?"
Then we thought there's signs of
fighting, as we looked him o'er and
o'er. "Sir, we are," we meekly
told him, and motioned for the boys
to hold him if he tried to beat us
sore. "Then you'll give me credit
opposite that little debt of a dollar
or more. I like your paper and
will take it as long as you strive to
make it as good as it has been before." We jumped, he dodged!
Thus we missed him, or we surely
would have kissed him, no matter
if the boys did roar. So seldom
treated in this manner, we were inclined to sing hosannah! Only
this and nothing more.—Ex.
