So far, however, activity  has been chiefly confined tei pro.-pect-  ing or developing work of a preparatory character, and while in 11 majority of cases results have been eminent  ly encouraging, it is yet early to go  beyond the statement tlmt. the outlook fur the Big Bend and lllecillewaet  districts is 1110-t f.ivoralile.

The tailings were  treated by 1 yanide and this gave 1111  extraction of S5.1 ey.midalion.

Many other tests - were made, till  bearing on the treatment of this ore,  the conclusion to lie arrived at   being:  (a) That the ore is easily milled at a  small cost.  (h) That 30-mesh crushing is the liesl  for economic milling.  .(c)   Tliat    amalgiimat ion    gives     a  Iii tie over.50 per cent,  of gold   on   the  platens. ���������  (ill That the ore can be treated very  successfully by tliu direct use of the  cyanide process,  (e) That as line crushing causes sliine  and loss in Ilo.-it'gold, coarse crushing  hy ordinary crushers and rolls, instead  of tho si 1aiiip battery, would be desirable; especially is this so as more  equal crushing is "possible by such  iiieans.-and a better pulp for-percola-  tio'ri is: obtainable."      *,.'.'"

Since, ihe dissolution o  tho 'helpless Helpman party he���������of  course wo mean His Lordship���������hns  been staying with some friends nt  Bittern l.nke. near Wetnskiwin.

Reference   is  mado   by  a  Ver- j  mont papor to the phenomenal    sale i  which  has  been  going on  at a store j  in  the  small  town  of  Bellows  Falls, i  No sale  in  the  town  in recent years  has   been   so   thoroughly   - advertised  and no sale has attracted such crowds.  It   was   a   perfect   stampede   all   day.

Z3  WEDNESDAY,  MARCH   S,  1S99.  ENBLISH  AND AMERICAN  MINING  METHODS  English mininz companies operating in British Columbia have been  much criticized on account of their  loose and extravagant and often incompetent management and their  consequent failure to pay dividends.  American companies on the other  hand, have been lauded I'or their  shrewdness, their economic management and the enormous dividends  thev have  paid.  The difference between the two  systems of management may be seen  at a glance by the'viBitor.  The English mine is surrounded  with eleeant and costly buildings, nnd  equipped with modern aerial tramways and modern machinery. Like-  xvise an equally expensive staff of  engineers, assistant managers.clerks  assayers, and other officials whose  servicers are more ornamental than  useful.  " Thc American mine is simply a  hole in the ground, with a log cabin  for the manager and his clerk and  a simple boarding and sleeping houso  for.the men. It has no ornamental  officials. Its employees from the manager down are workers, ln many of  the silver mines of the Slocan little  - er no machinery is necessary. The  ore is mined through tunnels und  connecting shafts and transferred to  the railway with as little expense as possible, to be shipped to  the smelter.  A sample of the English mine maybe seen from the train while passing  Laurie, a small station between Glacier and Revelstoke. Its fine aorial  tramway, its concentrator, its miles  of tunnels and its electric plant are  all eloquently silent, its elaborate  buildings unoccupied, and its shareholders dividendless. Contrast this  ���������evith the Le Roi and the Payne with  their shrewd management anel their  millions   paid   in   dividends.    ,  The Hall Mines. Limited, at Nelson, has one of the best mines in  British Columbia, the Silver King.-It  has b?en mining several years, but  has paid only a small amount in dividends and its i'i shares are worth  only seven or eight shillings. The  Nelson Tribune is naturally lenient  towards the Hall Mines. Limited, and   ma k_s_the_.follo.~~.*.ing_.pl ea_in_its bSz.  half  ' "Wnaiei-er may be said of the management of tho Hall Mines, Limited,  this much can ..be salel: During the  last two years the Hall Mines. Limited, paid S70S1 in taxes- on its outr  put into thc provincial treasury; the  Payne Mining company of the Slocan  paid "5331: and the Le Roi Mining  company of Rossianel S13.G53. Which  of the threo companies has been of  the greatest benefit to Kootenay? The  Payne company has erected no expensive plant and has employed not  io exceed 100 men on an average;  but it has divided $1,000,000 in profit.-  atnong its-shareholders, not a dollar  of which has been spent or re-Invested in the Koolenay." The I.e Roi  company has but an ordinary hoifiiing  plant ai it-* mine ��������� it is workers  through a shaft���������am! a smelter over  In the Stales. Il has employed about  *. ij nieii on an average, and has p-iid  Js'JJ.Ouo in dividend-. Moi.i of the  shareholders live in the States, and  the dividends were, of course," spent  end invested there. The Hall Mines.  Limiteei. has ihe usu.il plant al its  mines and has erecieel a complete  imeltlng plant at Nelson, lt employs  on sn average 250 men. It has paid  J1GO.O00 in dividends, par: of whicli  was spent and invested in tlio Kootenay. Were the Payne mine to  peter out tomorrow, its owners woulel  not have anything on their hands except a short wirerope tramway and.  a. rockcrusher, which could be sold  for old Iron."  - Coming from a Nelson paper this  Is cilte understandable. The Hall-  Mines, Limited, practically made Nelson -i'i "with their big monthly pay  roll ftill  an   important factor  in  itp welfare. The epjestion is not  one that should be judged from any  mere local standpoint. It should bo  faced in a business like way and the  question tho Tribune .i:ou!d answer  is: to what cstent will non-paying  Investments encourage ,tho British  ihareholder to put np furthor capital  to develop Kootenay mine*;? The  prime object of inducing British companies to invest in Kootenay mines  should not be that of temporarily  benefitting localities at the expense  of the ultimate failure of tho companies, but the success; of the companies and the future welfare of the  couafy as a whole.   Tliero is a happy  of  His  a livo one, and his Robinson Crusoe  appearance bears out all his marvellous talcs. He told them carelessly  at Montreal in an interview that he  had a seat in the House of Lords  somewhere. It was there for him  when he wanted it, anel lie supposed  ho would soon have to settle eiown  anel take his share in the politics ot  his country. The spectacle of Avon-  more on his feet in thc House ol  Lords addressing the Lord Chancellor  is too preposterous for anything. As  a matter of fact, his is but a Union  title and he has no seat in tho Lords.  This sort of thing may go with the  Montreal reuorlers, but certainly docs  not go hero. We know Avonore too  well. The Montreal Herald reporter,  after listening to an exceptionally fat  lot of ' chunks about Alexandria.  Khartoum. Dawson, Joppa. Tokio, Edmonton, Jerusalem and other watering places, mentioned that His Lordship (His Lordship'.) wore a suit  weather beaten home spun,  beard was shaggy (you bet it was) and  he had not. oven taken the trouble lo  laco his boots in a neat and proper  fashion. Ho nlso said that he could  not sleep in his bedroom in the  Windsor Hotel," because he hael  become so used to sleeping in tho  open. Although Avonmoro had hobo  instincts, he drew the lino at sleeping  in the open when a hotel was in sight.  "I have had my experience in tho  Yukon," observed His Lordship,  yawning, '"all T want of it. The remainder of our party I left in Resolution Citv. T am now going to run  down to New York to join -Charley  Beresford, my old comrade who was  with me a.t the (yawn) bombardment  of Alexandria and cross" the pond  with him in tho Campania." To do  Avonmoro justice, he tells Ihe truth  about' the Edmonton route, and snys  it is not only impracticable but un-  er.fe.  If Avonmoro doles out a mess to the  London reporters like what he doled  out to the Montreal young men, is  shoulel be worth reading. No doubt  the Sketch or., the Wide Wide Worle!  will havo his picture connoeled with  a beautiful account of Hunker Creek,  South Edmonton nud Croat. Slave  Lake.

Today, worth $1,000,000 and  more, he still writes them, and with  all their lack of rhetorical polish they  hit the mark every time.

It is always better to advertise a  little too much than not quite enough.  A paper with 1000 circulation is  twice as valuable as a paper with  500 circulation. Every increase of  circulation will add to that value, not  only proportionately but even more,  becauso tho paper with tbe larger  issue is generally the better and more  influential journal, and ns such exercises a stronger influence on each  reader.���������-Printers' Ink.  Too many advertisers who are beginners look for returns too - soon.  They advertise for a week or two in  the paper, anel then aro disappointed  if tho orders do not como in sufficient  quantity. They might just as well  look for a crop of apples after the  young trees hael been planted a week  or iwo. It takes time for the results of advertising to grow., but  when they arc once well under' way  they will continue to give yearly crops  of constantly increasing size, just as  the* apple tree reimburses its owner.  Mr. Young Advertiser, tho public does  not know you. and it is not going to  get acquainted immediately after the  introduction. You will have to grow  into favor, anel you should be cont  stantly anel everlastingly pushing  yourself into public notice. Don't do  it offensively, but be quietly persistent. Keep on advertising and you  will have your own reward. Remember that if the business is hard  to get. it will be as harti to get it  away from you.  Good accotumod ition.

Vancouver February 28.���������Australian advices by tho steamer Miowera  tell of a remarkable bicycle race in j  Sydney, which was won by a dead  man. As the story goes, the race  took place at an electric light carnival. In a oue mile race there were  j ?0 entries, some of the fastest men  in Australia taking part. Ten thousand persons watched the race, and  saw young -James Somerville pass  nutler the tape a winner and a dead  man.  At the start Somerville took the  lead, followed closely by another  crack rider named Percy Cliff. They  lcft 4S riders in the rear and shot  around tho track almost wheel to  wheel. With 25 yards of the tape  Somerville was seen to relax his hold  on the handie bars. His pedals whirled around, however, and he maintaiu-  c-��������� his posture.  Five yards from thc lapo Cliff pul  on a tremendous spurt, and struck  Somervllle's hind wheel, shooting'the  machine wiih its rider past the tape.

Physicians who examined the body  said Somerville must hare had an attack of heartfailure while on the  last lap.  l\.  Wetaskiwin Free Lance.  The painful news comes from Consul Fleming at Edinburgh that the  v. hiskey surplus in Scotland is 137,-  1300,000 gallons. And yet we only left  that _ country 12 years ago. How  ihings do accumulate!  .    *   *  It is with some misgivings that we  build a conundrum based on a classical allusion, but seeing that it is  Lent, when anything thai tends to  gloomify aud darken the air is indicative of a religious spirit, wo shall  risk it. Be it understood, however,  that this joke, even if it is Lent, is  not     borrowed. Before     reading  further the honest subscriber had  better go out and take a drink.  * *    *  To the conundrum. Why should the  Augean stables of this city make a  good rink? Of course you give it up  because you don't~know what' tlio  Augean stables are, but the answer is,  because there are so many old skates  in it.  * *   *  By referring tb Grecian mythology  the "full beauty of this'riddle which,  like the writing ou the wall at Bol-  shazzar's feast requires considerable  interpreting, will be unfolded, and the  tone of last Thursday's meeting of  the Council will be in a manner ac-.  -ounted for.  * *   *  It is'vexing to one whs loves his  Calgary to hear peoplo talking both  in the city and elsewhere of the Kilkenny cat-like meetings of the council.  Ignorant persons have a-mistaken  impression about the-duties of those  connected, with the Augean stables,  lt is but dirty work, and where personal interests conflict, there shall  the dirt be found also. In the ease  of our much abused, but worthy  mayor, than whom possibly thero is  no abler politician in Calgary or one  better posted on fiscal matters, it is  surprising that citizens should expect  liim after years of labor-and self  denial in tlie west to" be a party to  any one else acquiring a'competency  'n his own particular line .of business.  Electors may vote a man into the  mayoralty chair, but thoy cannot vote  away his human nature. That will  assert itself more than ever with the  acquisition of power, and it is to the  mayor's credit that he has not already  introduced a bill for the abolition, extinction and total"annihilation of the  Alberta, the Queen's, the Palace, the  Windsor and the Grand Central.  *   *   *  . In every council or legislative .assembly there is at least ono kicker  who kicks higher than the other fellows. .. No self respecting council  should be without one. Such a man  i;s usually a rough diamond, though  few peoplc"are inclined to regard him  in the light of a jewel. His rowdyism amuses the public and makes good  copy for the local papers. For many  years in the' town council p������,Glasgow,  -whera-"~the"~man"ag"e"iSeVit'-~df^iTimicipar  affairs has been reduced to a science,  there was a councillor by the namo  of Jimmy Martin, a kicker from tho  head waters of Kicking Creek. He  Mas a clothier in the'Gallowgate, a  low quarter of Glasgow, and ho certainly did introduce into lhe council  chamber tho latest styles in Gailow-  gato manners. His influence in legislation was nil.' yet he spoke on  ovcry motion, objected to every proposal, questioned every account,  ���������liatle himself generally obnoxious,  and even was known to allude In  debate to the Lorel Provost as "an olel  nommoril," which was a-piece of  awful sacrilege. He would also purposely address the town . clerk, tho  dignified Sir James Marwlck, as "Mar-  wood"���������Marwood being the name of  the then common hangman. Strange  to say, In private life Jimmy was a  most estimable man, a veritable king  in his ward where ho did many acts  of kindness in a quiet way amongst  tho poor, and Glasgow felt really  sorry when old age compelled "Oar  .Teems" to quit the battlefield and  tako up a permanent residence in the  old Cathcart kirkyard. ' Thc council  Itself, however, accepted this relief  with much thanks.  * *   * ���������"  With all. his faults, "Oor Jeoms,"  whose uproarious conduct at meetings  became historical in Scotland, wa3 a  man of much personal probltyand  honor; so much so indeed that when  the City Improvement Trust had  measures introduced authorising them  to tear down certain portions of the  Trongate and Gallowgato, measures  which meant a serious pecuniary loss  to Jimmv. he voted in their favor. It  wero well if some of this spirit, this  unaffected regard for the weal of his  native town, involving as it. did an  elimination of self, could be implanted in thc breasts of somo of our  western solons.  * *   *      -  Of course the situation is altered  when every man in the council is a  kicker.  * *   *  It is stated that a ruined house in  England in which a poet onco Hied,  was struck 200 times by lightning.

The  American mine owners want I he duty  retained; llie smelters want it aliol-  isheel. 'L'he mine owners argue that  lead mining in this eiiunlry is an  infant iud'isl.ry. which should be  fostered by a tai-ill"; lhu smellers nrgui:  thai, the ijualily nf li'.'id fniiiiil hi lirit-  ish Columbia is of a kiml necessary for  use in smell ing the Aniei-ieaii prinliie-l,  and that a duty upon it works Lo the  disadvantage of American inleiesls.  They argue that insli'.ul of licm-liting  American inleiesls, a duly on lead  tends to injure llii-in, ror it. encourages  smellers to set up their furnaces in  British Columbia and keep lhal  branch of industiy on the northern  side, of Lhc binder. The mine owners  on the other hand assert thai if the  clul y is abolished it will bring American miners in direct competition with  Caiiai'iaiis, who nre paid lower wages,  and that, therefore, the American  workmen will bu injuriously affected  thereby.  There is not enough lead ore produced in this country to supply the  demand, and smellers have, found the  British Columbia ores excellent "fluxes.  If ri'ipiiri'd te) rely upon the American  product pntirely. the smelters say  that tpieslion is not worthy of consideration. The present duly on lead  ores is li cents per pound on Lhe pure  article. Under the Wilson tariff there  was a duty imposed nn lead of fj cents  per pound. The total i in porta tion  or lend into the. United Stales in 1807,  the. Ial est year for whicli statistics are  available, was 1(1.1132 tons, which paid  a duty of $2-15.!ib'_.-1-. Of this ore.  ihree-ipiarters came from Mexico nnd  one-sixth from British Columbia.  Lead is a raw material of industry  and why it should be singled out from  iillieis of its class for taxation is  clearer to tlie lniiie owners than to  others. The lend mining inl crest lias  always been strong enough to impose  a duty, and ib is now to be seen  whether its influence is still potent, or  whether the smelters are snllie-i.'-ntly  powerful fo abolish the duty on British  Columbian ores.  EVEHING up  of  thu    district- requires  belere     shipping   to the  The Toronto World on Jos Martin's  Policy With thc Dominion Government  Thc Toronto -World of March 3rd  says: *��������� linn. Joseph Martin looks to  be Lhe coming man in the hiMorv of  Canada. He has already distinguished  himself anel the Liberals are in power  to-day because Mr. Martin showed  lliein how to take advantage of the  situation which the Manitoba School  Question created. But their gratitude  was not equal to Iheir debt tei ' Joe.'  ���������million. Jlr. Sifton got what should  have come to hiin.    Some of  lbe legis-  to i-nmiiience from the south end. It is  obvious, if this intentiiiii is e-arrieel out.  that, the loss to llevelstoke will lie-  considerable. In the first place any  benelit llml might accrue to this lown  from Ihe business activity, which lhe  actual work nf iniislriictiliga lailroad  carries willi il, will hu lost. Such  activity would be of course only  temporary, but would be a valuable  help to Lhe business men of this place  all the same. Tt, would ivc-nup us for  last year's dull ������easoti if it did nolhing  else.  In the second place Kcvc'lstcike is  going to have a fight for the Linleaii  trade anyhow. ,Or.'.'e the line runs  through the country from north to  south we shall find the keenest, competition from Nelson and Spokane for  the business, which with Ihe rapid  development of the district, sure lo  follow on thc construe:! ion of a railroad, will become of considerable  value anel importance. IE the road  starts from the south it will givo our  southern rivals a tremendous advantage over us. They would have full  access Lo lhe market several months  perhaps be-fore we couhl get in there  at all on any terms Lo compete with  thoni. Once lhe tide of trade sets for  the south it will be a difficult matter  to turn it our way. Much of the  benefit of lhe load lo Kcvelsinke will  be gone before we ever get a chance to  enjoy it.  These are grave considerations  bearing directly on the prospects of  lhis town. They seem to the IIi-'kai.d  to demand serious entertainment and  prompt action. It may yet he possible to get lhe idea of working from  flic.
