As a result of the agitation begun two weeks ago agaiust the action of the C. P. R. in demanding freight charges on zinc ore
to Antwerp to be prepaid, the railway company has reconsidered the
matter and has withdrawn the previous order. This will undoubtedly
mean the resumption of zinc shipments, which have been discontinued for the past month.
There is also the probability of
a Colorado zinc smelting firm entering the Slocan market for a zinc
pigment ore, aiv ore that carries
too much zinc for lead smelting and
too much lead for zinc refining.
George Huston, who represents
the Denver firm, recently visited
several Slocan properties and believes he can. get a large tonnage of
the character of ore wanted. At
the Bosun he found large quantities of this class of ore, and believes
he can handle it at a figure that
will give the company a good profit.
Mr. Huston is ready to handle 500
tons a month of this ore, and if the

the matter in charge will bein position to submite a definite scheme to
the members.
It iH stated that when those directly interested in the matter have

The world is still mainly selfish.
As a rule when moral, physical or
financial danger stares us in the
face we lose sight of everything except our wee selves. This is why
hard times are made harder, and
no locality can be built up by holding the nickles and praying for the
dollars that never come. Generosity begets generosity, and many
people would benefit themselves by
a few doses.
THK    MASTER    PASSION.
You cannot change human nature
by force. It has to be done by suggestion along the lines of love and
harmony. The parsons in Spokane
have been very busy this winter in
crushing the social evil in that extremely sensualistic city. They
have done no lasting good. Merely
scattered the evil, by making it less
noticeable in certain localities. Sort
ofjrtuckingthe __ flowers as it wei'e,
and leaving the roots in the old
formation. To entirely eradicate
the social evil, or even to reduce it
until it is no larger than a.pimple
on the moon, it will be necessary to
make stirpiculture a lino art and
do away with the false and injurious teachings of creed promoters.
The church, with the opposite object in view, is one of the great
causes that lead to so much ruin,
misery and degradation in this
world. In its treatment of women
the church places creed higher than
nature and enforces its commands,
when necessary, with the aid ofthe
police. While such conditions exist there is no hope of obliterating
the scarlet curse that has tainted
the world since tho early days. The
attitude of the state, church and
society towards women must be reformed before any change for the
better can be expected. To bring
about a revolution of this kind will
require long years of labor by thousands of minds that have been lifted
out of the mud and whose eyes can
see the real light that shines near
the throne of our best God. No pin-
headed parson with his parrot sermons can bring it about. No politician with his glad hand and lying
tongue can produce it.   Xo pluto
crat with his bags of gold will bring
it to pass. No sticklers for custom
or knifeblade slaves of fear, ignorance or vice will be responsible for
such a revolution. It will have to
be done by men who are strong
enough to stem the tide of habit,
and popular opinion. By men who
are willing to brave the sting of
persecution in order to eventually
raise the human race out of the
slime of perverted passion and place
it in an earthly paradise.
It may be an Utopian dream but
in order to bring about the social
reforms blindly aimed at by the
clergy it will be necessary to change
the economic conditions of the day,
and make woman absolutely free.
She and her children must be absolutely assured against want. She
must be allowed full command in
regard to love and the flowers that
blossom in its train. She must always be a queen and never the slave.
When such a condition can be
brought to life all evils will disappear from this earth. It is the violation of love, harmony and nature's
laws before and after birth that
causes all the despair, misery and
remorse that confront us in every
city and hamlet in the land. If
parsons and reformers wish to
change conditions they must throw
away their crutches,  take the ban
dage from their eyes aud walk over
the trail that leads to glory on earth,
and peace to all men.

A well known eye specialist declares that every man or woman
who smokes half an ounce of tobacco a day is smoking himself or
herself blind. And in addition,
he attributes the increase of cancer
to indulgence in tobacco. That
smoking is fatal to the sight is well
substantiated. The following letter
written by a Fellow of the Royal
College of Surgeons contains some
startling assertions: "it cannoti;be
denied that the smoking habit
causes cancer of the lip, of the
tongue and throat, blindness, and
a whole host of nervous symptoms,
with general deterioration of the
ihysique. I have seen as many as
five patients in one day all blinded
by smoking. One could not tell
night from day, and not one of the
others could read. Tobacco is not
only a curse to those who use it,
but a nuisance to everyone else."

and sold by R. T. LOWERY. Its contents are streaked with humor,
with a toiich of pathos here and there. The upper levels are filled with
comedies and tragedies that have occurred in the zincy Slocan when
its trails were hot with the Hwift rush of new feet, and the fever of
mining camp life showed 105. Certified assays of the cent belt Appear
in several chutes, and three poems with at least $100 of Mexican money
appear like diamonds in a blow-out of gold. The lower stopes art! filled
with pictures that would havo astonished the universe one hundred
years ago. The stories by other writers have clean ore, although
Dickens did uot write any of them. This grand and lurid publication
is cast adrift, postage paid, to any part of thu earth at the following
prices: To people over 100 years old, 5e; to parsons, 15c; to busted
prospectors, 10c; to all others, 50c. On the lst of May, 1090, all
copies nre redeemed at 810 each. Remember that 100 years will climb

Canada's Growing time
The Dominion Government is
sending out a picture book something on tlie line of the ABC
story books for the nursery. It is
intended to impress npou the mind
of grown-ups by colored pictures
the immensity of the resources of
the Canadian Northwest. It will
in all probability accomplish the
"" object aimed at, for it is a fact that
the average mind will grasp much
more from it colored illustration
than from a page of dry figures.
Uncle Sara and John Bull are
brought into chummy companionship. They are made the prominent figures in each picture. On
the title pago they are shown passing a hand-board "To Canada,"
carrying between them two great
sacks, labeled "£" and "$." Accompanying eaeb picture is a brief
comment something like this: "A.
prominent lawyer of New York,
writi ng to Sir Al fred Jones, says:
•The Canadia.li northwest can easily
take care of forty millions of people.
There is no desert country there;
all the land is productive and
highly so. In fifteen years there
will be in the Northwest ten millions more population, than now.'
Short paragraphs are given jrom-
inent space telling ofthe possibilities of the country. Here are a
few:
John Bull and Uncle Sam have
not always pulled well together,
but they an* now thoroughly in
accord as to the attractions and
advantages of Western Canada.
After long waiting Canada is
now coming into her own. She is
known the world over as a land of
plenty and prosperity, where there
are prizes to be won by all who are
stout of heart and hand.
No region in the world offers the
farmer a finer opportunity than tlie
Canadian Northwest. The best of
wheat land, a splendid climate, excellent railway facilities, ample provision for churches and schools,
light taxes, good government, admirable postal arrangements, everything is indeed in Canada's favor
and thrifty and industrious settlers
are bound to come by the million to
possess and cultivate her rich aud
highly productive soil.
Where once the buffalo was the
only thing raised, and the Red Indian the only husbandman, now
stretch vast wheat fields, yielding
25, AO, and in some cases even the
enormous quantity of 50 bushels to
the acre, bringing handsome returns
to the happy and fortunate settler.
Elevators holding from 20,000 to
60,000 bushels are to be found at
almost every railroad station, and
in every settlement. No farmer
need team his grain   many miles.
From $40,000,000 to $70,000,000
is annualy added to the wealth of
Western Canada by production of
the soil.
The area of the Dominion of Canada is 3,745.574 square miles, while
that of the United States is 3,610,-
035.
Canada includes in extent perhaps the largest area of arable land
to be found in any country in the
world.
The great wheat producing prairies of Manitoba, Assiniboia, Saskatchewan and Alberta, contain
land areas to the extent of 229,101,-
725 acres. It is estimated that
fully 100,000,000 acres of these
lauds are still open for free home-
steading. There is also the District
of Athabasca which has not yet been
opened up to general settlement,
wliich has a total area of over 150,-

000,000 acres.
In 1902 these prairies yielded
nearly 70,000,000 busheles of what
besides 30,000,000 bushels of oats,
and over 12,000,000 bushels of barley. The wheat belt of Western
Canada.is about 1,000 miles lbng
by 400 miles wide, yet only a very
small portion of this tract is under
cultivation.
Free homestead entries, covering
160 acres of land each, were granted
bv the Government of Canada to
7^426 persons in 1900; to 8,167 in
1901; to 14,673 in 1902 and to 31,-
383 in 1903,
England, with her enormous appetite, is certain to be Canada's best
customer for her natural products.
Even today Canada is supplying the
Motherland with great quantities
of flour, and wheat which is ground
into flour, and her reputation for
quality and for maintaining the
standard is undoubtedly superior
to that of other countries.
Her bill against the mother country for theyear 1902 amounted to
J the enormous sum of $131,202,321.
This will be vastly increased during the next few years not only in
consequence of the greater demand
for the Canadian food stuffs, but
because in the development of her
natural resources Canada will year
by year increase her supplies.
The construction of railways
through Canada—particularly that
portion known as Western Canada
—will make markets of easy access
for the quick sale of farm products
in every district. Whatever may
be the experience in other countries,
settlers who are now locating on
Canadian farms will reap an immense advantage over those who
come later.
Canada now exports to the British Isles in large quantities: wheat
and flour, beef, bacon, poultry,
cheese, butter, apples, and a variety
Of farm produce, timber and pulp-
wood, farm implements, leather,
furniture, and large quantities of
other manufactured articles.

A tall man rose from one of the
back seats, and, with a reverential
bow, politely said:
"If you plaze, sir, he can have
my place. I'm going out.''—Brooklyn Eagle.
"When I was in politics out in
Iowa," said Secretary Shaw, "I had
some difficulty in deciding on a
comity ticket. I met a Swede who
is a big farmer in my district and
talked to him about the candidates.
" 'Olaf,' Tasked, 'whom do you
think we should nominate for
County Judge'?'
" 'I tank Oie Oleson ben goot

" 'And for   District   Attorney'?'
'Yon Yon son.'
'And for County Treasurer?'
'Neils Peterson.'
'And for Sheriff?'
" 'I tank James Smith.'
" 'But, Olaf,' I protested, 'you
have named a Swede for every other
position, why not a Swede for
Sheriff?'
" 'Oh, we must do something to
catch the Yankee vote.' "—Philadelphia Post.

P. O. Box 583.        Office: Kootenay St.. Nelson
Ten years ago I heard an assayer
then doing business in New Denver,
refuse to assay a piece of local rock
for gold. "I won't assay it," said
he, • 'this is a silver camp and there's
no gold around here, so save your
money." This goes to show that
there are assayers and perhaps even
mining men who have not learned
the truth of the statement, made in
such an ancient book as the Bible,
that '"gold is where you find it."
Gold does certainly occur in most
unlikely places. If you have a
sandstone doorstep to your house
you may be passing over gold every
day and also you may be quite justified in suspecting your grindstone
of having gold in its composition.
This is preliminary to stating that
there is gold, and a whole lot of it,
in the Slocan district. I personally
know of several mining properties,
tributary to Slocan lake points,
from which samples give upwards
of $100 per ton in gold values, and
of a dozen more prospects from
which samples ranging from $5 to
$40 per ton in gold can oe obtained.
In many cases high silver values
accompany the gold values stated,
especially in the veins having a
crystalline quartz gangue—such as
occur in the granite area tributary
to Slocan City.
"Nothing is so new as that wliich
has been forgotten," therefore it
may surprise some of the present
residents of the camp, and interest
outsiders to learn that about nine
years ago a couple of prospectors
took out and shipped five tons of
gold ore from a prospect situated on
eight mile creek near Silverton and
that the smelter returns showed
$125 in gold per ton of ore. Asa
matter of truer, the ore was shipped
in my name and I can vouch for
said returns.

This gold ore was taken from a
quartz vein lying near a huge mass
of •mineralized eruptive rock carrying gold, silver and copper values
held in masses of iron, copper and
other sulphides, and it is to this
mass or zone of sulpide ores that I
wish to call the attention of mining
men or companies who have means
to handle such a proposition. This
great zone of mineral bearing rock
appears to be continuous for over a
mile, from the UL. H." group on
the east end to the "Rockland"
group on the west. The owners of
the "L. H." group who are well
known miners of experience, state
that they have already opened up
large bodies of ore, on their property, which will easily average $7
per ton in gold, and that the mineral bearing rock will concentrate
7 into 1, giving a product of clean
sulphides which can be treated locally or shipped to smelters.
In the "L. H." there are bodies
of ore which give high values in
both gDld and silver, but as these
irregular in occurrence and above
the average in values, they are not
included in the estimate given.
Development work has also been
done on the "Rockland" group and
here conditions appear to be much
similar to those at the "L. H." except that copper is more in evidence.
The outcrop here   shows in places
flakes of   native  copper   and   the
whole rock mass   is   more   or less
colored by green and blue "copper
stains" or carbonates. I understand
the owners  of   the    "Rockland"
group claim to have   an average of
upwards of $12   per
silver  and   copper
properties lying between the "Rockland" and "L. H." consist mainly
of the ' 'Daisy'' group and the claims
which    were    included    in    the
"Congo" group, all   of which, and
including the "L.H." group, are, I
understand, open for aale or bond.

The West   Canadian   Collieries
Co. is now the largest and strongest
coal   company   operating   in   the
Canadian Northwest,  as its holdings now embrace several collieries,
each of which have heretofore been
looked upon as big undertakings.
The following is a list of the interests lately acquired and merged into the   West Canadian Collieries
Co.: The Byron Creek Collieries,
the  Uellevue  Collery,   the Lillie
Collieries,   the  Grassy  Mountain
tain Collieries and the Blairmore
Coal Co.     Any of tho above taken
by itself is a big coal mining proposition and when taken all together
as they now are, they make one of
the largest coal mining propositions
in the whole of Canada.   Thc management of this entire property has
been placed in the  hands of Mr.
Whiteside, who for so   long has
been manager of the Can more aud
Anthracite mines in northern Alberta, while J. J. Fleutot, tu whom
the success of these properties is so
largely duo, retains bin position as
managing director.
Tho Blairmore Times nays that
this company in the largest producer of coal in that section and in
in a position to more fully develop
ita various properties so that it*
output of both coal and coko can
bc made to aggregate thousands of
tons per day.
