A   change   went   into   effect on  Wednesday in the tariff, rate for the  shipment of ore to the Trail smelter.  The previous rate  of 20 cents  per  ton has been raised to 30  cents  on  ore being: shipped from Rossland to  Trail that does not start from Rossland, when the shipment is less than  ten.cars to the train.      The  change  does not effect ore mined   in   Rossland.

On  the  north  side of New Hazelton is  the lead and silver belt.    The "Silver  Standard  mine,   owned by Patrick  Welch, will be the leading  shipper  in the .silver belt, with the American  Boy second.     W.' J. Harris and his  tiephews of Spokane are the owners.  There are a   number  of miners  on  Nine-Mile mountain   that  the  government  road   does   not   reach yet.  They will use rawhides  this   winter  and bring the ore down to the main  road,   and  are     waiting  now    for  sleighing   to   ship.

We will not predict that El Paso's  Boundary mining and smelting com  panies during the present.year is  brought up to $1,7541875, over$500-  000 in excess of the total amount  paid during the whole of 1912. To  this year's total the Granby company is the largest contributor, having paid $673,000; the Standard  mine at Siiverton   is   credited   with  $550,000,  the Consolidated   Mining  at��d, Smelting   company, at  Trail,  -and   Rossland,   has   paid. $220,000;  the Hedley   Gold   Mining  company  .has'paid out $160,000, the   Le   Roi  No.,2. at Rossland, has   distributed  i$43,200, and   the .

The object of the new process,  says he, is to( convert- the mineral  in the ores into valuable metal.  Ore.s that are not marketable on account of their low values can be  treated on the ground at the mine.  The newly invented process consists primarily of a roasting and ro-,  fating furnace, which, in 15 minu-'  tes time, assisted by gases under'  pressure^ converts all the carbon-'  ates, oxides and -silicates of copper,;  lead arid other minerals in the ores  into pure metals, rendering them  "free milling,'/ 'so' ;to/%peak; 'and  readily separable by mechanical concentration from- the valueless" gan-  gue u matter. -It will enable the'  mine owner to dump his ore "from  the.mouth\of the tunnel into the  crusher at" >fcn��  upper -end  few steady producers in the district.  -    .      ,       M ,The   ore  averages   3.75   per   cent,  undeveloped   mineral   re-  with gold and silver values  ran^ine-  3W    idle    under   tha ^..���_<    fV,<.m ��M   nn t.  ��>i   /-�� ���     S  sources now idle under the desert  ;sun, will hereafter yield hundreds "of  millions of dollars.  from $1.00 to $1.60  The   property   was tinder lease in  1905-1908 to   the   Britannia   Smelt  When you reflect on  the fact that  ing  company,   and in 1909, it   was  almost all the expenses of smelting,   leased to Samuel Linchtenstader  .hauling and freight consist in getting f  _   rid of the gangueror non-metallic  '-.mineral in the ore, you will instantly perceive what the Dawson process means for the mining industry.

It is  no exaggeration to say that iu New  Mexico, Chihuahua and West Texas  there are several million tons of low  a total of at least six dollars per ton  to mine, haul, freight and smelt one  ton of ore, for which he would receive only $4.80, thereby losing  $1.20 per ton.  If he treated  this   same   two   per  cent copper ore in the Dawson plant  at the mine he would receive a profit  of at least $2.80 to $3 per ton.      If  his   mine has  an output of 100 tons  daily, his profit would be from $280  to   $300   per   day.      The   estimate,  based  on the El   Paso  quotation of  twelve cents   a   pound  for   copper,  leaves him a margain of two cents a  pound to ship his ore to the Eastern  market   and   pay   refining   charges,  because the market value per pound,  or two cents more than El P.iso quotations  Granby 23,091     1,064,507 j Nelson   hockey  club.

Christmas Cooking* Necessities  Now in Stock.  GET YOUR LIST IN EARLY.  Big Sums for Raw Furs  A. B. Shubert of Chicago, the  largest house in the world dealing  exclusively in American raw furs, in  a letter to the Pioneer says in part  as follows:.  Furs are extremly fashionable  and a woman's wardrobe is not complete without one or more sets of  furs. Even in mild climates, there  are- large quantities of fur overcoats  being sold to gentlemen.  The present prices of American  raw furs, as compared with the  prices of a few years ago, make  pleasant reading for the old trapper  and collector, but to the tenderfoot  in the fur game it seems like an impossible story and if the old timers  didn't know the facts to be trtm,  they would say "tell it to Sweeney."  Why it was only a few years ago  Ihnt one could buy all the Musl:-  rats in Canada for six cents apiece,  and   they   sold   as   low   as 4 cents.  Winter and   spring   collections   last  season brought 45 cents to 60 cents.  The   entire   collection   of   Northern  Mink could be bought at $1.50  and  $2.00   for  No.   1 large prime skins.  But furs are   a   great   deal   higher  now.     The cause   of  this   tremendous advance is the  keen   competion  created by the well   known   circular  houses.     The   trapper  must be paid  for the hardship he endures,   and   if  Shubert made the fur  market,   furs  would be much higher,   as the average trapper does not get the collection he did years ago.  Look  at the  Young  Fellow  Sets  the  Pace in  Clothes  A. B. Godfrey of Nelson, district  superintendent of blu> B. C. Telephone  company, and Geo. McCartney, superintendent of construction, were in  Phoenix yesterday on a trip of inspection. They had come through  from Midway, and went on to Gi-iu ;1  Forks and Rossland.  If you could only ask them you'd find a lot of them  wearing  -^^^TAILORED CLOTHES  That's because they're sure of the style and correctness of them. It takes good cutting and good  tailoring to get the proper fit into the snug,  form-fitting coats worn now. And only that  same good tailoring and all pure wool fabric  will make it stay there.  If you too want to be sure of that fit and wear you  had better get yourself a suit of STYLE-  CRAFT this time.  In cut and cloths we have such a variety that one  can find anything that suit's o-.e taste.  arson  ���-7  T*M ■iiaw

along with them,'to add to  the entertainment ofihis  company."    The
poet adds.     "On presenting  which
he put on' his  hat,   turned   on   his
heel   and   retired.'^   There, are   31
lines in the poem; the  closing part
of which is as follows:

the barn  apart.    When  he  peered
into tncstall  and  gently, enquired,
"What's  the  matter, Molly?" that

'Many mining.camps,_ like   prizefighters, have been known to "come
back."    Two camps in point  at the
present time are Aiusworth and  the
Slocan.    In ' each   case   after   the
first boom-there was   a slump and
the   camps   went  absolutely  dead.
Today both camps are, again jumping to the front, and the mines that
for years were abandoned are  now
lieavy producers and   paying  handsome  profits.    The  bringing   back
['of each of these camps was   due  to
the men of perseverance  and   opti-
} mirim, whose vocabulary  contained
rib such word'as fail.     In  the very
face  of   obstacles   and   adversities
they refused to abandon these prop-

are entirely out .of place."

Roused the Audience  Joseph Jefferson used to say that  his carrer  came.very   near   being  nipped in the bud in a small western  town. " He was at that time a member   of   a   small   pioneer company  which progressed by means of three  "bull teams" from one mining camp  to   another.      They   were   always  heartily received by the miners  and  cowboys,   who   readily  paid the $5  in  gold   required   to   witness   their  performance.      Mr.   Jefferson   was  the  traditional melodramatic villain  candi-land   in   the   third act was supposed  to kidnap "the child."   The supposed mother hearing its  cries,   rushes  upon the scene just as he is about to  escape and fires a fruitless shot from  a revolver.   <  Upon this particular occasion all  Princeton have been closed down I had &one wel! untiI this scene was  for the want of coal and will utilize I reached�� and the audience, * many of  the time in repairs.

"Round to j  '-the   back   door  and* head   him off  'fore  he   can git a hoss, boys!" he  yelled,   and, following him, half the  audience stampeded for the exit.  ,' The-excitement was fiaally allayed  by the mother and the villain appearing hand in hand before the  curtain  and   the   manager's  explanation of  the ^situation.

King of Cranbrook has   ,  been made a member of the College  of American Surgeons. He took  the degree in Chicago. There  were only six surgeons chosen from  British Columbia. Dr. Douglass  Corsan of Fernie was also one of  the number.  Harry Lauder has entered into an  engagement with the Glasgow Pavilion management to make his first  appearance there after his world  tour.,- His contract calls for the  payment to him of the unprecedented salary of $5,625 for one  week's performance.  The-members of the Kaslo hockey  club are determined to. go to the  Rossland carnival this winter. Last  season, through some funny work  they were Aim flammed by somebody somehow out of an opportunity to take part in the intermediate  series, aud they are going this time  for sure or the world will hear  about it.  George Schroeder, a convict  whose baritone voice got' him out  of -the Walla Walla penitentiary  after getting a 20 year sentence for  forgery, is now at a Spokane vaudeville house at a salary . of $100 a  week. When the German Saen-  gerfest was held in Walla Walla  last June, Schroeder got permission  to sing before it. Two weeks later  petitions containing the names of  4,000 German musicians and others  were handed to the parole board,  asking Schroeder's release. This  was granted.  One of the matters to come before the railway commission at Ottawa is the case of a man who was  charged for a seat in a tourist car  while riding on a C. P. R. train on  a first class ticket. The passenger  in question was a Salvation Army  officer, who boarded a train at Medicine Hat to go to Regina. As  there was no first class coach rn  the train he took a seat in the tourist car, and the sleeping car conductor demaeded payment for a  parlor car seat.    This was paid   \<y  Americans adopted the tune, fitting  to the words: "We Won't Go  Home Till Morning, Till Daylight  Doth Appear."  The profound simplicity of the  song,naturally appealed to the befuddled intellect of the soldiers on  carousal. "For hef's a jolly good  fellow," followed after three repetitions by "Which nobody can  deny," is another version sung to  the same tune.  d. k Mcelroy  .
