NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANAURY 23, 1904.  ISC  N  ews of the  M  mes  Reviewing tbe mining and metallur-1 thing is on the ground to complete the  gieal progress made during the year I tram, but the weather seriously retards  1903, the Mining Journal, of Loudon,  says it will prove a memorable one,  particularly in respect to pure science.  The Journal speaks of many things of  immediate interest to the Pacific Coast,  saying:  "Turning to gold mining, we "find  considerable increases shown in the  production bf gold. The world's output for 1903 will probably exceed  ��60,000,000 in value. This corresponds with the estimate of the Director of the Mint, Washington. The most productive gold  mines at the present time are the  Honiestake, South Dakota ; the Simmer & Jack, Transvaal; .the Boulder  Perseverance, Western Australia ; the  Robinson, Transvaal; the Golden  Horseshoe, Western Australia ;. the  Champion Reef, India; the Rose Deep,  Transvaal; the" Mysore, India; the  Waihi, New Zealand ; the Geldenliuis  Deep Transvaal; the Portland, Cripple Creek, Colorado: and the Mount  Morgan, Queensland. In the Transvaal the geological structure of the  goldfieldsia being warmly discussed",  jancl itappcars that the conditions at  great depths do not altogether conform  to the theoretical views hitherto accepted. The Cinderel, a borehole,  yielded valuable evidence, the Main  Reef being struck ait a depth of 3309  feet. In Western Australia the future  gold production of which has been  discussed by Mr. H. C. Hoover, the  jniines possess a more speculative  character as to the continuity in. depth  than those of the Rand, but the high  average grade of the ore now being  Worked, taken with the proved possibility of working 7 dwt. ores and the  fact that only 10 per cent, of the  known area has been prospected, point  to a great output for many years to  come. Auriferous mining is being  prosecuted with energy in other districts. In,, Rhodesia the outlook is  dubious; and an interesting account of  tbe working of a wide quartz reef in  soft ground at Rezende was given by  Mr. J. A. Woodburu."  the work. The men are up to their  hips in snow, and stringing cable under  such circumstances is slow. The distance from the railway spur to the  upper terminal is nearly 2J miles, and  there are a few subsidiary lines.  Weather permitting, everything  should be in running order by the end  of the month. This is a company that  does not p-irt with a share under parr  and the demand for the stock shows  that its value is appreciated.  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  YMIR MINING NOTES.  Phoenix Pioneer.  Bob Fraser reports the finding of "an  excellent ledge of ore this week on the  Evening Stair, Wellington camp.  Double shifts are now being worked  in the new No. 4 tunnel of the Granby  mines, the portal bf which is at the  back door of the Pioneer block.  - Owing to the inability of the smelters to handle all of the ore offered, the  management of the Athelstan, in Wellington camp, reduced the force considerably tbis week.  President Flumerfelt, of the International Coal &. Coke Co., after visiting the company's coal mines at Coleman, Alberta, was in the Boundary a  few days last week.  The work of the ballasting for the  newly laid steel ou the Brooklyn an?i  Stem winder spurs has been finally,  completed.:"' A" local amateur photographer took some views of the improvement.  , John C. Serafford, formerly superintendent of the B. C. mine in Summit camp, but who lately has been  at the Mountain Lion, in Republic  camp, is in charge of the work recently  started at theRatbmulIen group.  A 60-ton consignment o f Elmore con  centrates from the Lc Roi No. 2 oil  concentrator . has been sent to the  Granby smelter for experimental purposes. The ratio of concentration in  shipments to dale is eleven or twelve  tonsofH-cr-ude-oreHto-the-ton-Of-coneen-,  trates. . ..  Ymir Mirror.  There was a breakdown at the Wilcox tramway last week which neces-.  sitated the suspension of work for a  few days. One of the buckets slipped  the cable arid broke. All is right  again, and gold bricks will be forthcoming with due regularity.  Mr. E. Hopper, director of the London & B. C. Goldfields, Ltd., who has  been inspecting the Ymir mine, has  left the camp, leaving Mr. G. H. Earnhardt in charge. Mr. Atwater severs  his connection with the mine as manager, and leaves for the east on Monday next. ���  Pumping operations at the Dundee  mine continue and it is expected that  all the water will be out of the mine  in a couple of days. Last night it had  been pumped to the 200-foot level.  As soon as the waier is out mining  will be resumed, and before long regular  shipments of ore will begin. Consulting engineer Gracey was up at the  property the other day. -,     -  ;  President Johnston of the B. C.  Standard Mining Co. operating .the  Hunter V property, was in camp during the week accompanied by Mr.  Robertson of Winnipeg, a large stock-  bolder in the company. They visited  the mine and -inspected the works in  operation and express themselves as  thoroughly satisfied with the progress  being made. The only delay to the  shipping of pre is the tramway which  as yet is not in running order.   Every-  On the Rhoderick Dhu, in Long Lake  camp, one of Boundary's high grade  properties that has been working  steadily for several months iu a drift  from a new shaft recently started, a  ledge of $125 "was struck this week.  Shipments from this property are expected to be started next week, the  ore going to-' the Greenwood smelter.  Tom McDotmel is in charge of the  work.  Boyle Bros., who have the contract  for the diamond drilling at Uie Volcanic on the North Fork of Kettle  river, which is being tested by Michigan capitalists, have got well along on  the second 500 foot hole. Nothing is  given out about the results of the drilling, but it is understood that good ore  is being encountered, the cores being  sampled at the Granby smelter.  It must be very gratifying  to thoughtful British  Columbians to know that in the opinion of such  a  man as Byron E. Walker tbe finances of the Province  have been   placed on a sound basis by the present  Government.    The mere expression of such an opin-.  ion by such a man cannot but have an enormous effect iu establishing the good name  and credit of the*  Province. True, such newspapers as the Daily News,;  of this city, will do what they can to offset and minimize the good that may be done ; but we think the  outside world will give greater heed on such a matter  to Mr. Walker the editorial columns  of our'  contemporary.    It is rather curious that while discrediting ��� Mr.; Walker's ��� statement,   the admission  should be made that that gentleman "stands among;  the few recognized authorities on finance in Canada."  The inference is; that -while Mr. Walker is certainly  a* great authority, the financial expert on the staff of  the Daily News is still greater.    The bald facts, however, are well known.    The finances of the Province,  under previous administrations, were run in a most,  wasteful, extravagant manner; the result of a system of government which; necessitated" the introduction.of party lines in. the House.    The present Government bas had to grapple -with a serious  financial  situation, and has done so in a manner to command  the confidence ofsuch men as Byron E. Walker, and*  with as little dissatisfaction to the taxpayers as could  possibly be expected. -     ���  L-ast Sunday's* Colonist contained another contribution from Hon. D. W. Higgins, entitled^'The Prima  Donna." It is the story ot a celebrated operatic star,  sibo.deserted.her .husband and daughter. in^LjOtidon^  and years afterwards",during a visit to Victoria discovered that" the latter was living there and  married to a gentleman who held a position on the  Governor's staff. It is strange coincidence that a  celebrated actress who had separated from a husband  and daughter in. Boston, many years ago, afterwards  met her daughter in Victoria, but the latter never  learned that the celebrated actress she was conversing  with was her mother. * Mr, Higgins' story is one of  the best he bas 3*et contributed to the Colonist.  statement is either true or not true. If the people are  being treated^in Euch a way. by some physicians why  protect them. I fail to see why the medical profession enjoys such privileges as to be protected against  criticisms, which they may justly deserve. Any other  profession has to bear the light of day, and why not  these gentlemen ? Physical Culture does not believe  in medicine, but teaches people "to live properly,  thereby avoiding the necessity of calling doctors, and  there is a certain class of doctors who don't like it,  naturally enough, I suppose. Now Mr. Flaneur, I  know that the feeling is intense over this matter,  and the thonsands of people who feel that they  have been badly treated by having their liberty  ruthlessly trampled on, have decided to use all their  influence against the Government, and I know of  many Grit voters who have sworn not to support the  Government if this order is not reprimanded. . As for  the book containing immoral pictures, it is absurd.  It aims at tbe very highest standard of morality, and  considers the works of the Creator objects of worship,  not of scorn, as some-prudes would have them. Anything you can do to help us will receive the approval  of thousands of readers."  Shortly after the opening of the House, last Tuesday, Hon. Mr. Tatlow delivered the Budget speech.  It was an able review of the financial situation, and  expressed the belief that, as a result of the measures  adopted, the Government would be able to meet all  liabilities and enter on the coming financial year with  a small balance in its favor.  Rev. Henry aBaer, of Kaslo, has been appointed  Archdeacon of the new diocese of Kootenay. This  will-beHHple"asinAnewsHtOHRev.-Mr^-Beer-s-many-friends^  in Eastern Canada and British Columbia. If we mistake not the new' Archdeacon was born in the Bermudas, and spent his boyhood days on the rock of  Gibraltar. He came to Canada before he was twentj*  years of age and for several years taught school in  Ontario. Afterwards he studied for the ministry,  and has been engaged in church work, not only in  Canada, but in several .States in the Union. The  EcoNoanST extends its heartiest congratulations to  Rev. Henry Beer on his appointment.  SLOCAN MIMING NOTES.  aiociin Drill.  Sandon mines last week shippid 110  tons of ore. '"'"  The new tram at the Idaho is in  rtuiniug shape.

Some little.time ago, we called attention to the ex  elusion from the Canadian mails ofthe Physical Cul  ture magazine, deprecating such exclusion. "Flaneur"  in the Toronto Mail and Empire of last Saturday, inserts; the following letter, from a correspondent regarding this exclusion,and the views therein expressed  will, we think, be endorsed by many of our readers :  "Anti-Fat," Gait, writes:��� *'*    '    .  "Dear Flaneur,���Will you be so kind as to give a  few lines to an old offender. .1 might remark incidentally that I am still thriving on my vegetarian  diet; and have made lots of converts. What is worrying not only me, b ut would you believe it thousands  of others just at present, is the action ofthe Government in the stopping the sale of Physical Culture.  .This magazine is the greatest advocate of morality  and temperance that there is; and gives a vast amount  of information and hygenic instruction, and its sale  bas been suddenly stopped, owing, to, as is claimed, a  libelous article on some Toronto doctors. I admit, as  do most Canadi'iu readers, that it was a bit of bad  judgment to publish this letter, but if the assertions  are true they should be known and if not they should  be fittingly retracted..

The Presbyterian Home Missions of British Columbia have been enriched to the extent of $500, by a  bequest of the late John Cameron, of Iroquois village,  Ont. Of course it is well to get the $500, but the  peculiarly perveise spirit of our heathen out here  gives rise to the suspicion that it will take more than  that amount to make one convert.  Mrs. W. J.

It is a four-page weekly  paper, published by Mr. D. R. Bogle,  aud deals principally with matters of  local interest. Municipal and political  questions, as well as general city news,  receive prominent attention in the initial issue.  The annual banquet of the Kamloops pioneer and Benevolent Society  has been discontinued for the past  seven years, but the members have not  by reason"efthls,'lo8t tta'art-of-enter-  taining. Last week some forty of the  m embers and their guests met in tbe  good old way to discuss the good things  provided by mine host Barnhart of  the Grand Pacific and to finish out an  enjoyable cveniDg with song, speech  and story.  There seems to be no doubt now but  that a cattle-buyer in the Armstrong  district has done-up the farmers for  about 13,000, and no matter how sore  they feel, they have to admit that his  work was, in some respects, anything  but coarse. He and his agents started  out from different pointsjand made7 for  Greenwood. On their way they would  buv anything that could walk and for  payment would give cheques on a  bank in Greenwood. This was done  at the holiday time. All the cat  tie, sheep and hogs purchased were  driven, and no time was lost, to Greenwood, and sold to the cattle buyers  there, <and as it happened the stock  arrived in that town before the cheques.  When they did come they weremaiked  ������ no funds," and the maker of them  did not seem to be around.  It Is reported that Mr. E. L. Drni^,  M. P. P. of Victorra, is slated for the  position at that port made vacant by  the death on Sunday of Collector ��f  Customs Milne.  It is said that the delay in commencing work on the improvement of the  North Thompson river is owing to the  absence of the resident engineer, "Mr.  Keefer, on the west coast of Vancouver Island.  *' Wonderful. 1 Wonderful! Wonderful F'exclaimed  Manager Seamans "or  the Olympia Opera company last Saturday.    The reason for Mr. Seaman's  LJrprise was the fact tbat an opera  company could play every night In a  . city tbe size of Nelson and draw good  houses all the time.    He said tbat in  his many years' experience in theatrical management, he had never struck  as good a shew town as Nelson tn'  comparison to its size.    He was also -  somewhat surprised to learn that in  Nelson we have the best amatuer operatic organization west of Toronto.      1  Evidence of the substantial growth  and progress of Revelstoke is evident  on  all hands, but  one of tbe   best  evidences is the fact tbat during the  ���past year over 8,000 tickets were sold  at the Revelstoke office of the C. P. R.,,  and tbe revenue taken  at the' city  station  alone showed an increase of -  ���pyer. .60. percent...

The committees who bad charge are to  be congratulated on the success of tlio  opening, particularly the Invitation  aid decoration committees, whose  work, to Bay the - least, was very  arduous. Messrs. Choquette Bros.  supplied the refreshments.  B  otindary  VJre v3  hipments  Poor old Bill Herring is no more. Bill left here a  few years ago for the Provincial Home at Kamloops,  and lingered on till last Sunday, when he died at the  age of 64 years. Bill was well kn own in every city  and town in British Columbia, having resided in this  Province since the early sixties. He was born in  Pennsylvania, and reached San I Francisco when the  gold excitement was its height. He was famous  as a newsboy iu the Bay City, and afterwards came  to British Columbia. He was in the Cariboo rush,  and for years followed steainboating. Bill was a gook  type of the early pioneer,] free with his money when  he had it, and his death will be regretted by all the  old-timers.  Rev.

Creston, D -c. 15lh.l903.  Wti.^mng a- 'inougnt.   .'���  frofessor "\V. &. Ar.dcisoa of YAw. Ufii-  versity   lately   succeeded   in   practically  :weighing the result of a thought's actio:1.. A student vri*.spU\.ecd on a  "niuscle-bcd," poised ocn a *. balance  so that the center of gravity o^  his body was exactly over its center.  When he was set to solving lnatiieniati-  ��� cal. problems, the increased weight of  blood at his head changed his center oJ  .-/gravity and tiuised an immediate dip ol  Jthe balance to that side.   Repeating th<!  '��� in ul tip'licat ion table ^ of 'nine's ' caused  grc'iter^displaccinaat. than repeating the  tahleiof lives, and, iii general,"that,dis-  phicementigrew greater with greater intensity of. thought.. Carrying the experi-  nci>L further, the p\peiinic*��tor had the  it>:dcnt imagine himself going through  leg gymnastics. As he pciformed the  feats mentally, one by one, the blood  lloued to the limbs iu suflicicnt quantities to tip the balance according to the  movement thought of. By purely mental action the center of gra\ity of the  body was shifted four inches, or as  much a.-, by lading the doubled arms  alowc the shouldcio. 'ihese expciiments  Vverc lepealed on a large nu-nber of stu  dents, \uth   the  sime resulti.  'lo test still further thejnastciing in-  'luonce of ni.nd over muscle, the strength  of the light and the le[t~aims of clc\en  joung men was regi-stered. The aveiage  stiength of the right aims s\.is one hr.n  drcd and eleven pounds; of the left arms,  ninety-seven pounds. The men practised  special exercises with the right hand only  for one week. Tests of both arms were  again made, and, while the average  strength of the right arm had increased  jgfcpotindgi^'_of Jhe^jincxerciscd left  arm had increased seven pounds. This"  showed dearly that the brain action connected :with the ' gymnastics developed  not only the muscles put in action, but  also other muscles controlled by the  same portion of the brain. This could  only come about by sending blood and  nervous force to the proper parts by  purely mental action. Professor Ander  son says of the results:   '.-.-'  "I cari prove by my aiuscle-bcd that  the important thing in all exercises is  the mental effort put forth, f can lie  down on this muscle-bed and think of o  jig, and though apparently my feet do  not move, and actually the muscles are  not active, the muscle-hcd sinks toward  my.feet, showing thnt there has been p  flow of blood toward the muscles, and  3that, if I did dance a jig, the muscles  would be well supplied with blood under  this mental stimulus."���J.

Like mnny Frenchmen, especially tlios.  ���jailing from the south of France, President Loubct is very fond of those national dishes in which garlic forms an  important ingredient. Oaoc, in his lawyui  days, when he was pleading in court after/having partaken of sonic sueh dish,  his democratic tastes in this respect  placed him in a somewhat embarrassin"  position. The presiding judge happened  to he a man of aristocratic origin ar.d  breeding, to whom the odor of garlic was  absolutely intolerable. 31. Loubct rose  and began hi'3 argument. He had not  proceeded very far when the judge was  observed to sniff rather uncomfortably  and to take out a perfumed handkerchief, reinforcing it a few moments later with a smelling-bottle. These measures, however, proved.of no avail as a  protection from the pungent, and penetrating effluvium which emanated from  tho future President of the .republic. At  last, his olfactory sense vising in open  rebellion, tha-indignant judge shouted:  "Usher, open the windows; open the  doors. For heaven's sake, let cut this  abominable smell!" Since then M. Lou-  bet, it is^said, though he still preserves  his simplicity of life, lia's eliminated gar-  lie from his articles of diet.  ���*Dear* 'old hoy! .He's,looking a 'hit  down in the mouth. What's up?" "You  see, he introduced a friend to his tcilor,  and the tailor's gone bankrupt. Two of  'cm was wait than he could sUad."
