The dishonest man or woman ie always tho moro rendy to impute dis-1
honeet motives to others J Lain?
Stocks, in hia communication in the
Nelson News of June 19, concludes liis
remarks by branding the movement
against excessive smelter rates as "a
conspiracy of falsehood and misrepresentation directed for some other purpose than the good of the lead miners
against the Canadian smelters."
J. Lang Stocks may bo a very intelligent man. He may know a great deal
more than he leads"'people to believe
that he knows. But he has clearly
demonstrated that he is not honest in
his remarks about tho silver-lead mine
owners of the Slocan. And, more, he
has clearly demonstrated that he is a
dirty bird, for he befouls the, nest
wherein he was raised.
S. S Fowler, in his communication
published in the Nelson News of June
14, did not go so far as J. Laing Stocks
He contented himself by saying that
the statements on the other side of the
argument, were "irresponsible etate-
ments."
S. S Fowler is a man of mystery, who
knows all about it but wont tell. He
gives comparisons of settlements by tbe
"old" and; "new' methods. His examples are from shipments ot ore from
the Whitewater . mine, and are apparently carefully selected so as not to
run too high in lead The' reason for
this will appear later on
Taking the figures as given in the
Ave examples published by Mr Fowler,
ascertaining tho smolter charges tinder
_the.oM_method-by_iaddiiig-thajnaEket_
ing etiarge of 20 cents per 100 pounds
(or 90 per cent of the lead contents) to
the freight and treatment charge; and
then finding the smelter charges under
the new method by adding tl 00 per
100 pounds of the lead contents to tho
freight and treatment charge; by subtraction we arrive at the differences
plus sign denoting increase in smeltor
charges and the minus sign decrease.

J. Lalng Stocks differs from Mr.
Fowler in that ho is not a man of
mystery, who tells all about it but
doesn't know. He does not display tho
same cunning as Mr, Fowler in hi-
choice,of examples, aa witness his lead
percentages. As before tho plus sign
donotos increase in smelter charges
and the minus sign decrease:

We are glad that S S Fowler and J.
Lning Stocks have published their
figures, because, although they endeavor to becloud the subject by mixing in extraneous matter, the plain deductions from tlieir examples, as above
published, conclusively proves our con
tention that the smelting charges have
been increased, and that no satisfactory
reason for such increase has been of
fered But we have shown reason why
the charges should have been decreased
If the smelter faction continue to up
hold Canadian smelters in their "cinch
game." wc shall no longer wonder that
the management of the Ymir mine was
transferred; or that the Whitewater
mine is not now shipping; or that the
Enterprise mine is being worked under
lease from the companv; or that the
Queen Bess mine is being advertised
for sate under judgment from the court
It la to be noted from the examples
Bubllshed that, quoting from Mr.
tock'a letter. "In February, 1800,
when tha Hall Mines ■muller had actually began to compete for load ores,*'
the ores low In lead were cinched more
than they were lu 1WW; nor did the
he*try lead ort* escape

ample* published by both Mr. Fowler
snd Mr. Block* tend to show th* truth
of Mr Cavanaujfb'i wstetition, to
whom the ttttert sr* suppowd te reply.
It im; appear ttrang* that the »mall

against ores carrying A low percentage

TICA1L SHBLTKK ULOSBO DOWN.;
All the hand masters at the smelter
are now closed down, the last four thai
were running being closed this week.
1 his was caused by the roasted ore accumulating to such an extent for a
month or so that thero is room for on
more. This accumulation is due to the
inability ofthe smelter to start the lead
furnaces, on account of the shortage of
coke The management has asked th**
mines to suspend or redueo ore ship
incuts until nu adequate supply of fuel
is secured.—Trail Creek Newt.
For the fourth consecutive week ore
shipments from the Snowshoe mine this
\vi'«k .-exceed tho?e for the pre\ions
seven days.
It is expected that work will be resumed on the Big Copper and also the
King Solomon, in Copper camp, in the
near future.
The E P. M claim, near Greenwood,
has sent 21 tons to the smelter, which
is expected to give returns of about
8100 per ton.
Tho B.C. Copper company is asking
for tenders for hauiin? ore from tht
Morrison mine to the Deadwood spur,
for testing purposes at the Mother Lode
smelter.
On account of not yet receiving the
extra provincial supply of coke, on the
way, the Granby smelter has found it
hard to keep even two furnaces running
this week.
Last week five carloads of plans for
the new addition to the Granby smelter
arrived at the works, from Chicago
Some time next mouth tbe two new
furnaces are expected to be ready for
business, making six in all.
The strike on tho Defiance claim,
ner.r Greenwood, wliich was reported
in the last issue of the Pioneer, prove:-
to bo $500 ore, it assaying 900 ounces in
'-ilver and an ounce and -a half in gold.
William Fowler has a lease and bond
on the property.
With the arrival of 2,000 tons of Fair
Fox, Wash , coke, ordered some time
since, the Granby smelter will'probable
have three furnaces fn blast, there being now hut two A thousand tons of
coke have already arrived, and ,by
Monday a third furnace wiil be blown iii.

Of all the demonstrations of fratonil
< ntnimity and love that have from titiP
to timo been witnerspd in.New Denver,
the union services-held Sundav after
noon in Bosun hall eclipsed them all.
To the committees havingcharareof the
affair, and to the ladies and others who,
assisted in carrying out the arrange-'
ments, all honor is due.    Everything
passed off well and the day was greatly
enjoyed
About seventy visitors came on the
excursion from Sandon, and Silverton
sent up 20 or 80. Owing to tho break-,
down of the naptha launch in the morning, it was impossible to send a special
boat for the Silverton ladies and as a
consequence many failed to come.
The members of the orders turned
out well, there being 100 in line as they
inarched to the hall. ''■'■'
Bosun hall was arranged to seat 800
and there were not more than twenty
seats vacaot. The services opened
promptly at 2 o'clock when tho frater
ual orders marched into the hall and
look seats in the triangle on thc main
floor. The decorations were simple
but tastefu'ly arranged, and the floral
ftieces the prettiest that have appeared
on any like occasion here.
On the stage beside the speaker were
Rev. Mr. Rogers of Nova Scotia, Grand
Chancellor" Nelson, Deputy Grand
Chancellor Bolander, Deputy High
Chief Ranger McRae, Grand Representative Hall, and K of R. and S Gordon of Sandon lodge, and Anthony
^hilland, representing the Miners'
Union. Behind these tne Sunday school
'     id
washout had occurred near Bear lake
the previous night, and passenger*
wore transferred to Sandon by handcar.
Mr Heathcote and Mr. Prunk were
riding together when just before Sandon was reached a dog ran out and
barked at them, and, stumbling, fell
under the wheels throwing the car off.
As it struck the ties all the passen*
eers were thrown off the car. Mr.
Heathcote was very seriously-shaken
up and is still suffering from the effects
of the shock and biu"sing. The
conductor came off better, only his
ankle going under, but he will be confined to the house for a week or two.
Botlrwere taken back to Kaslo, where
Mr, Prunk remained at his home, while
Mr. Heathcote was tak n to Nelson.

were bilking of going into the
smelting business; and, later, what
actually happened when the Hall
mines began to compete for lend
ores. All of which makes u* wonder what might have been had the
Creator made Mr. Stocks four
thousands years before Christ. But
it does not explain why the local
smelters charge $25.80 for freight
and treatment today when they
did the same work three years ago
for $18.50. Nor does it explain
why the local smelters charge $13

TEf URSDAVT,   JUNE 25   1903.
KDITOltlAL   FLOAT.
A whole lot of people have
more than wing-darned Carpenter
creek this spring. n-
The pith of S. S. Fowler's remarks in the Nelson News can be
summed up in this: "Keep'quiet,
yon fellows, till we get that bonus,
and then our smelters will let us
lick the spoon."
The detailed account of the
slaughter of the king and queen of
Servia and their household, reads
like a chapter from the history of
the dark ages. It is incredible
that in the present day the world
should witness such a barbarous
crime by a people professing to be
civilized.
Sib Thomas Shaughnessy is
mad because his railroad company did not get away with
the b'g land steal. He says: "The
company will not Build another
mile of new road in the province
of British Columbia until those already built are paying." Poor,
mad Sir Thomas.
"Irresponsible"!^;
discussing the situation relating to
the mine operators and smelters,
refers to the statements published,
showing up the injustice of the
smelter rates, as "irresponsible
statements." Just what S. S.
Fowler means by "irresponsible
statements" he does not explain,
but the inference is that lie believe?,
or would have the public believe,
that anything published that docs
not set forth an "old method"
and a "new method"—of juggling
with figures—is "irresponsible,"
and that which he produces, along
with that produced by J. L. Parker, is "responsible."
It is not necessary to quibble
over which are the "responsible"
and which the "irresponsible"
statements produced in the controversy. The public can judge better than S: S, Fowler just how "responsible" his statements are, and
how "irresponsible" the statements
of the writers who oppose him.
S. S. Fowler's "old method" and
"new method" of figuring.,is quite
as comprehensive as tlie "old
method" and "new method" produced some time ago by J. L. Parker. Indeed, both these "responsible", writers seem to have compiled the statement from the same
dictation. But S. S. Fowler fails
as J. L. Parker failed, when he
attempts to explain the necessity
of the smelters charging il a ton
more for treatment today than tliey
charged three years ago on the
same character of ore.
HorrOrS   Of Oregon, a-disas-
~^~What a sweet-tempered lot of
people edit newspapers. One dear
lady, who edits "Beauty's Real m,"
where silly girls and foolish old
maids tell what ails them and ask
"what to take," replies to an inquirer who says she is bothered
with a very red nose, that "mines*
of the nose is a sign of poor circulation," and then she proscribes
the remedy.
Down south they believe that
disease is carried in bank bills, and
gold and silver is the only kind of
money that will circulate there.
Up here in British Columbia we
aro not so particular. And especially at The Lkdok office do we
havo very liberal ideas about
money. We will take anything in
the money lino that our subscribers will shove at us.
"Fitoii my knowledge of the
conditions and my past smolting
experiouce, I do not consider the
present rates excessive," says 8. 8.
Fowler. Then will 8. 8. Fowler
please toll us what he thinks of the
smelting rate of $5, whioh the
American Smelting trust i? making
on Slocan oro. If $5 will do the
work in Colorado, why should $13
bo charged in B. C.?

Forms of women frequently, come

bodies are borne to Roberts' hall
to be washed and dressed by

for ceremony. The floors swim
with tho half-diluted mud that
drips from the victims. But the

out when it ges too deep. The

THE   CUT   KID.
City kids, ain't got no sense;
They wear such hiiikydinky clothe?,
And snag 'em on the top wire fence,
An' tear 'em everywhere they <ro<>,s.
They don't know where the ground birds
nest,
Ner how to lick out bumble bees,
Ner where the cattish bite the best,
Ner can't tell slippery ellum trees.
My cousin Ralph he visits us
An' trots around on pipe-stem leg*;
He thought that Cochin China hens
Must he what laid them, china eggs
What we leave in the chickens' nest
An' take away the rest
His mama made soma Easter, eggs,
Au' didn't tell him thnt she made 'em
He found 'em by a lilac hiiili.
An' gee, hu thought a rnbl-itlaid 'em.
Huh, rabbits thev don't lay no eggs
Fer little kida 'ith pipe-stem legs.
Nen Rilph lie wished he had a dog;
Hu w.'iit an* begged his "mama dear'
Tn "i>t u bulldog et»g for him
An' fetch it to nur place out here
Aii natch it under eome, old hen,
"An'my, I'd have a bulldog then."
A bulldog egg - ain't that immense?
Huh, city kids ain't got no sense.

OUR LOUIS AND POSITIVE FOOL.
For example, the theory that
every mnn is as good as his neighbor, and possibly a little better,
has no check for fools, and instead
of the respectful silence of Eng»
land there eeems—to the ordinary
English mind—an extraordinary
quantity of crude and unsound
judgment in America. One gets
an impression that the sort of mind
that is passively stupid in England
is often actively silly in America,
and, as a consequence, American
newspapers, American discussions,
American social affairs are 'pervaded by a din that in England
we do not hear and do not want to
hear. The real and steady development of American scientific men
is masked to the European ob**
server, nnd it must be greatly
hampered by the copious silliness
of the amateur discoverer, and the
American crop of new religions
and new enthusiasms is a horror
and a warning to the common British intelligence.
Many people whose judgments
are not absolutely despicable hold
_a_theory__that~ttnhampered_*oer-
sonaY freedom for a hundred years
haa made out of the British type a
type less deliberate and thorough
in execution and more noisy and
pushful in conduct, restlesr rather
than indefatigable, and smart
rather than wise. If ninety-nine
people out of the hundred in our
race are vulgar and unwise, it does
seem to be a fact that while the
English fooi is generally a shy and
negative fool, anxioua to hide the
fact, the American fool is a loud
and p sit've fool, who swamps
much of the greatness of his country to many a casual observer from
Europj altogether. American
bookr, American papers, American
manners and customs seem all for
the ninety and njjie.—Fortnightly
Review.

.VThank j'ou, sir,'? and with a
smile on his handsome face the boy
sergeant got over the wal I,.clown
aniong the sufferers,'' pouring the
blessed water down, tlieir parched
throats. After the first few bullets his errand became understood,
and shouts instead of bullets rent
the air.
He came back at night to his
bivouac, untouched.
An Intelligent Hog,
I have a trained bird dog which
I would not part with for $100. A
few days ago there alighted from
No. 2 at this place a long, lanky,
extension-necked individual, wearing a pea jacket and ar. overgrowth
of masillpry filaments, commonly
called wind-sifters. No sooner had
my dog gotten his eyes on the nondescript than he began to point,
and point he would, notwithstanding tho efforts of myself and Joe
La Bracque to chase him away.
The peculiar conditions of the act
were so passing strange that I at
once concluded the man had live
game in his clothes. I stepped up
and with condescending politeness
said to him: "Stranger, what is
your name?" I was almost dumbfounded when he replied: .''My
name is Bird, sir.—Frederic Times.
The Ghost That Failed.
Brown is a very good fellow, but,
alas ! he has one bad habit. It te
that of never roaching home until
the small hours of the morning.
But one day last week Mrs. B.
hit upon a plan. If she could not
persuade Mm out of the habit, perhaps she could frighten him out of
it. And, consequently, when he
reached home that night he was
confronted by a tall, white-shrouded figuie, which glided toward him.
"W-wh-w-what's that'?"'. gasped
poor Brown.
"I am the family ghost," replied
a sepulchral voice.
Brown heaved a sigh of relief.
"Great Scott 1" he said. "How
you frightened me! I thought it
was the missus!"
girl said: "If I were serving the1
cake, I would give you the large
piece and keep the small piece myself,"  "And keep what, yourself ?"
replied the boy.    "Anil keep the
little piece myself," said the girl.
"Well,   what   are   you   kicking j
about?"  replied the boy;   "ain't'
you got it?"
nefore the Second Piece.    , '
Mama and little Frances were
going to visit the little girl's aunu,
and mama cautioned the young
miss not to take a second piece of
cake until her aunt asked her to
havo it. After they arrived at the
aunt's house they sat down to supper; Frances ate her piece of cake
and patiently waitetl to be invited
to have another piece. As her
aunt did not extend the invitation, Frances drew a long breath
and said:
"Auntie, won't you please ask
me to have ant titer piece of
cake? Mama raid I could have
another piece if you asked mo to."
*lie •■» letter uf the Law."
Mama had expected guests for
tea. Finding the sugar jar empty
she snid to little Willie: "Run
over to Mrs. Lee's for somo sugar
and be sure our visitors do not see
you."
Willie obtained the sugar; then,
instead of going to the side door,
he went to the parlor door and
pushing in the little hand that held
the bawl of sugar, but keeping
himseli out of sight, called out
lustily:
1 'Here's your sugar, mama. *' —

The day after the battle of Fred*
/icksburg, Kershaw's brigade occupied Mary's Hill, aud Sykes' division lay 160 yards ahead, with a
atone wall between tbe two forces.
The intervening apace between
Sykea* men and the atone wall waa
strewn with dead, dying and
wounded union eotdiera, victims of
the battle of the dav before. The
air was rent with their groans and
agonising crieeof "Water! Waterl"
"General," said a bov-aergeant
in gray, "I can't stand this."
'•What is the matter, sergeant?"
asked the general.
"I oan t stand hearing those
wonnded Yankees crying for water;
may I go and give them some?"
"Klrkland/' said tbe general,
"the moment you step over tlio
wall, you'll get a bullett through
vour lieod; the skirmishing baa
been murderous alt day."
"If you'll let roe, I'll try."

Thomas Carlyle and Hit Wife.
As a married couple they were
indeed to be pitied if the world
had known it. They were childless, and therefore half tho world
was dark to them. No nian can
be a "sage" who has no children.
A barren woman is like half a
story. Let her be ever so clever, so
litejiyy, so witty, when it comes
to the' essentials of life she is open
to the retort, How do yon know ?
And so it was with the Carlyles in
their unsatisfying world of literary
eminence. Pity them I When they
shut the doors of their several bed
rooms at night, a mouse might not
squeak or a fly buzz but tliey must
start full awake in the blessed dark
and moralize, the one on eternity
and the other on Thomas.—-London Outlook.

THK EARLY HISTOKY OF LEAD,
. Lead and and its properties have
been known for a very long period,
reaching back, in fact, to tho beginning of history.
In prehistoric times lead does
not appear to have been extracted
from its ores, either in Europe or
America, as .the metal is never
found associated with th§ remains
of that period. Within historic
times, however, the use of lead
dates back to the earliest records
in Asia, Africa, Europe and
America.
Pliny tells is that Mida°, king
of Phrygia, Asia Minor, 1,000 B.
0.. discovered lead. In China
flattened discs of lead were used as
coin 2,000 B. C, and in Egypt lead
and iron mines were exploited by
the ancient people of that land on
the borders of the desert fronting
tho Red sea. They also used lead
as a cement, or polder, in erecting
their stone buildings.
In, Europe the famous diver-
lead mines of Laurium, in Greece,
wliich were worked as early as thc
Trojan war (about 1,200 B. C),
were the source of much of the
wealth, and consequent prosperity
of Athens. England was extensively exploited for lead by the
Romans from the time of their
first occupation of the island.
Nearly aU of the modern uses of
lead and its compounds were am
ticipated by the ancients. In India
it was used as weavers' weights
and also as charms; red led was
used as a cosmetio and as a medicinal application; The Egyptians
used it as a gKze for pottery, and
the Phoenicians filled their wooden
anchors with lead. They ateo made
leaden coffins. Lead was used in
glass as early as 800 B. C. The
masonry of old Babylon was
strengthened by iron clamps held
in sockets by load, and the hanging gardens were floored with the
same ductile metal.
Lead pipes, some of them as
large as 30 inches in diameter,
were common in most of the ancient cities of Asia, Arabia, Greece
and Rome. Bullets for slings were
made of it, and white lead was
used.as an ointment and cosmetic.
At the beginning of our era extensive manufactories of this white
lead existed at Rhodes, and also at
Corinth, and made no small portion of the active trade of those
j^enJ.ouufihiiigleiMMi
ingr activity, and obvious prosperity
that marks Winnipeg and the West,
Mr. Hooker expressed himself as
p'easantly surprised The indisputable
evidences of the agricultural wealth oi
the Canadian West impressed him very
strongly _"-Mr. Hooker   called   uponl of fate's strokes   Frequently the motto
Commissioner J. 6. Smith, and from
him obtained much information as to
the class of immigrants who are arriv
ing in Canada, making particular, inquiry as to the American home-seekers. "You in Canada," he said, "are
getting a much better class of immigrants than wo in the Suites. With ns
the Latin races predominate*. They
will make excellent citizens in time,
being ii.dnstrious and frugal, but it will
take two or three gem-rations to as i
milate thuiu properlv to American
ideals of life aud thought. But with
you it is different. The Americans
constitute a very large percentage of
your immigration, and they are among
the very,cream of our fanning popula"
tion, resourceful, experienced, skilled,
and with ample capital. We regret to
«ee them go,but Canada can get no lu-t
ter settlers. And 1 iimi that the American sett'ers in Canada become in the
truest 8-use Canadians, regarding your
institutions and laws as even prefer
able to those of their native land. Ol
annexation sentiment among thorn I
find not u trace. It appears to mo t j
exist only in tho imagination of some
iil-infonned .uneriuui newspapers Hut
the lar^o numbers of Americans now
in andy« i tn come tnCnuidn, will ha\y
one very iui|oitatit iiitutnul:oiiul result—it will make misutiderstandini;
between tho two countries more difficult, and permanently cordial relations
more assnsed. With fo many Canadians as we have on our side of the line
and so many Americans in y*ur side,
each developing the cuuutty of hia
adoption, the best of feeling will be
fostered. American intcro.st in Cairn
da wae never so keen as now. The
number of articles in newspapers and
magazines concerning thn Dominion iB
ample evidence ot this. Americans are
watching wilh heartiest sympathy the
great forward strides Canada has been
making during tho last few years, and
the hundiede of American visitors who,
like myself, havo visited your great
Western country, are all surprised with
its agricultural" fertility, its evidences
nf comtnercial prosperity, and with the
enterprise and kindliness of its people."
MISMANAGEMENT   WILL   DKSTKOY.
People have such mystic conceptions
of miuiug properties and tho .mining*
business,    I'hey do uot apply the samt-
quidt rules of energy, .intelligence and
honeBty prescribed in every other vocation. Many aro prone to regard mining as some sort of an exception, which
will enrich votaries or defeat their
hopes with the whimsical irregularity
of an old promoter, General John Gash
weiler, is quoted: "Damn a mine that
cannot stand mismanagement'*
Nothing'is more absurd than this
thought, analyzed by modern mining
intelligence. We all concede readily
that there, are some mines which mismanagement cam ot destroy. T iosu are
the rare denosits of the p"rcciou9 aud
PBeftil metals which are so m-ar the pure
state that, once found, they cannot be
lo-t till exhausted, and the margin of
profit over mining and reducing the ore
is so enormous that the most shameless
waste cannot reduce it to loss. Such
cases are found in, mining, but perhaps
in no other industry. There is no commercial venture, no manufacturing enterprise, uo bank and no farm that mismanagement cannot min.
But such mine3 form a small part of
tl e real producers in the lonj liet. Between the biggest type mentioned and
tho vein filled with bull quartz are
properties representing every degree
of enrichment. There are scores where
the deposit is fo widely disseminated
that tho best economics of tho profes
Ai n, substantial financial support, and
m* et astute management cannot establish a profit Just above these nre
other properties where  such

What IM production was during
those early times, can hardly be
conjectured although it is estimated
that about 2,100,000 tons of the
metal were produced during the
5th and 6th centuries, B.C. In
modern times the United States ha?
sprung, in the production of lead,
as in so many lines of exploitation,
well to the front, the annual
amount being now near 300,000
tons, out of a total world production of less than 1.000,000 tons.
Spain and Germany come next,
though far behind, while almost
every country in the world contributes its quota to the total.
WHY SOUK MINEU9 UO NOT SUOCKKD
In mining, tho possession of
nerve counts for much. The man
who is not daunted by difficulties
even if severe, but who determines
to see the thing through in tho face
of obstacles, is tho man who makes
a success.
The fact is tlmt fow mines pay
from the grasB roots. It is true
that many of thein havo done so,
and tho number of rich mines that
have not only paid their way from
the start, but have given wealth at
the same time to their fortunate
owners, is surprisingly large. The
lutwt, and one of tho most famous
of these is, of course, the Mirpah
group,nt Tonopah. It mnde J. L.
Butler nnd his first associates very
rich, and ont of the hundred odd
men who took looses on the prop-
erty, twenty-flvo op thirty mnde
fortunes and all but (Wo or six
mado tnojcy, although their lease*
hod only nine months to run.
Nevertheless, the fact remains
that the majority of mines only become producers after tlie expenditure of much money and the use of
brains, backed by enthusiastic per-
wvetvnce. The evidence of this
fact Men {lAteiit on every hand, and
tlieic is hardly a mining district
where propeitics, now rich producers, are not to be found which
were turned down by wiseacre*
who knew  too   much to  spend

occurs close to bedrock and in old

its coarseness.. The majority of the
