A communication was received by  the.'icting Minister of L'ibor last. w-.ek  from the railway mail clerks, stat'n*  that they feel there is considerable  risk to themselves in carrying on op  I'ciations on the Canadian Pacific  Itnilwuy at the present time, owing to  the had condition of the road and the  number of accidents which have already occurred. Immediately on  icieipt of this communication the  Labor Department communicated with  .Mv. Shaughnessy in reference to the  matter, transmitting thc coniiuunica*  Minister of Education Visits Us.  The Mini-,li'i of 'education. J Ion. .1.  O. Pi entice and .Mrs. I'rentito were in  town on Monday. In the inoriiing.  accompanied by Thos. T.iylor. At.P.P.,  and the school trustees, he went down  lo the school grounds lo view llie site  for the new school buildings. The  main point of discussion was as to  wliether the new all iielure is to be  built uf tirick m wood. The tiustoe*-  aud Mr. Taylor stood pat for biickand  lhe minialer ot education for wood.  It was point ml out lhat lhe dilH'i'ence  iu price between brick walls and  wooden wails is only $2,000, an amount  whicli could if absolutely necessary be  saved, by ntiii/.ing the piesent hot air  furnaces for heating instead of patting  in.ii new .-team heating- apparatus,  but Air, Prentice insisted that the  dt-piirltuent could not alloid lo stint  ou a brick building which the city  might not be in a position to complete,  when il takes over the charge ot lhe  finances of the school next January  and which iherefoie Ihe province  might be compelled lo liuish'!! The  whole mat ter was in consequence  deferred till nc_:t spiing lo see if a  further appiopriitlioii will then be  forthcoming. Air. Pienlice would not  even consent to start on'the foundations which will be of stone, no mutter  what material the si.persti uctme is  finished in. lie however guaranteed  that lhe appropriation of $3.000should  not he allowed lo lapse.  In the afternoon in company with  Air. Taylor he met the city council,  when the matter of provincial aid to  the city for its recent expenditure on  the small pox quarantine, was discussed but without any definite  promise being secured. Thc request  of Lhe city for the gift of liie old scliool  building for use as a city hall and  offices was also urged, but Mr. Pienlice was not- in a position to state  whether it was in the power of the  department of education to grant it.  The brick v. wood argument was renewed in tho council chauiljCL hut  without any further results.  The altitude oL the Minister of  l-d-icatiup on this matter is rather  didicult to understand.- There is no  question of the plan, size or general  cbaricteristics of the pioposed building between bim and the li ustees. It  isagieed that a building -to contain  eight looms'.and an assembly room,  with atone foundations is to be elected  according to plans.fijed with tne���������de-  'pai linen t by the trnstees"aiicl ptepared  by Aschitect Dodd of Calcaiy, which  said plans call for a handsome and  compact building of Ihe sort they build  in Alberta,.where each school distiiet  builds its "own schools and lakes a  corresponding pride in- them. " This  building the government has agreed to  commence AVe say "to commence,'  because the present appropriation of  ijiSOOO is not goinc; tc build ;it, whether  it is constructed ol wood or brick and  at any rate at this adviuced  stage of the season it would be  inadvisable to* attempt to do more  this year than" to put up the stone  foundations, which aro tn be put in  anyhow, no matter in what material  the building is finished. But even this  work Mr. Pi entice refuses to allow to  commence, while be sticks lo wood as  the.material for the rest of the struct-  ui e with a most inexplicable tenacity.  There is only-a matter of- $1500 or  ���������S^OOOat the most, between brick and  wood. Brick will give in .return a  durable building, a credit to _the city,  and province; with a large deciease in  insurance and a further considerable  deciease in the annual bill for' fuel.  Wood will give us���������well Mr. Prenlite  or anybody else has only to glance  around the school yard to see what, wood  will give us. Itis.incnnceiv.ihle that for  the sake of a paltry 92000 he is really  bent on adding to that ghastly  collection of n.omunei'ts of departmental incapacity to see beyond the  tip of its nose. There has been enough  money thrown away on "'wooden buildings there within the past three years  to have saved the present appropriation of SS000 altogether if the government had onlv listened at the time to  those, the Hi:������ALDaiJjong them, who  implored them to put up a good, solid,  modern, brick building then and save  tho province money in the end. The  Hek.vlh hopes Mr. Taylor and the  trustees will slay with it and never let  up till even afc the eleventh   hour   the  Freight Grievance Commissioner  The following interest ing sketch of  lhe life ol'Piofessoi S.,l.McLean|is taken  from the Montreal Herald's portrait  gallery:  Profeas-or Simon .lames McLean,  who, under appointment of the Dominion government, i.s acting as  special commissioner to investigate, the  grievances ot the shippers and ni.uiu-  I'actiuei.s of the Dominion against the  lailways, is a young Canadian who  has made rapid advancement in the  past few years and who, at theagu of 30  is i egarded as one of the most competent  authorities ou railway economics on  the continent. Prof. McLean was  born iu Queen City in 1S7I, and graduated from Toronto univeisity in 1S01.  ln ]S!!l-5 he waslbe iM.-ickcny.it> fellow  in political science, and in tbe former  year was the Ramsay post-graduate  scholar in economics. In that year be  wrote an essay, "The Tariff History  of Canada," which was subsequently  purchased by the Ontario government,  ln 1S00 0 Prof. McLean was fellow in  economics and sociology at Columbia  university, New York, and in 1S9G-7 he  occupied the same position in tbe  University *of Chicago. In 1S97 he  took his degree as Doctor of Philosophy and -was appointed professor of  economics and sociology in the University of Arkansas, which position he  still occupies. Prof. McLean has made  a special study of the transportation  problem as it ali'ccts Canada, and has  written much on tho subject. In 1S01  ho commenced thc publication, in the  Journal of Political Economy ofthe  University of Chicago,'of a series of  articles on tho beginning of the railway policy of Canada to 1SG7, the latest of which appeared in the current  issue. He has also had articles in the  Canadian Magazine and many other  publications. -  Oil As Engine Fuel.  Boom time is pnst at Beaumont, Tex.,  where a few months ago oil gushed  forth from the eaith in immense quantities, shooting many feet into the air  and forming a small lake of the combustible liquid. Still, according to Mr.  II. Corinan of Caldwell, Tex., there is  a great future for the oil of the Beaumont district. Ilesays- that the general  opinion on the ground is that the oil  gushes theie will tend to revolutionize  fuel consumption and will largely talcs  the place of coal. Oil has long been  acknowledged >i superior fuel to coal,  being more compact and producing  greater heat with less consumption.  One of the greatest drawbacks to itu  use, especially for running engines, haa  been ,i dillicnlty in providing enough of  the crude material to ensure a constant  and steady supply. That has piejudic-  ed its general adoption. But the oil  wells recently sunk at Los Angles, Cal.,  together with those iu Texas and some  parts of South America, lead Mr. Gorman to believe that the difficulty as to  supply will be overcome.  During thc excitement at Beaumont,  according to Mr. Gorman, land sold as  high as ,$50,000 for one-sixteenth acre,  and many companies that invested  largely have since collapsed. The oil  area is now confined to between ten  aud fifteen acres.���������Toronto Globe.  The Armstrong Fire.  An incendiary flre on Saturday  morning burned out Wood, Ciu-gill &  Co., Hardy and 'Wright. Fnwr &  Patchett. Burns' diuR store, the  Masonic Hall. Francis' implement  warehouse, three dwelling*, the I. O.  F. hall. Hawkins' butcher shop, the  C.P.R. wamhouseaud other buildings.  The loss is $80,000, insurance $18,.  000.  Thu lire burned out in one hour aud  a half. It was set with coat oil by a  crazy man named Eagles, who was  arrested.  Nothing was saved except by Burns  and Francis, who have one-quarter of  their stock each. Two families are  homeless, having lost everything.  The C. P. R. agent's house, and the  hotel were saved by burd work, the  former boiug protected by a carload of  potatoes between the burniug buildings  and tho station. Tbe hotel was saved  by wet blankets.  All the buildings will be rebuilt. Tbe  flour mills were saved by their own  waterworks.  Blood in Their Eye. '  A deputation composed of ten constables, who havo been looking after  the road between Fort AVilliam and  Kal Portage for thef 0. P. It., wa.s,  at the Parliament Buildings this  morning. They had,,blood in their  eye. It appears the C. P. R. asked  the Attorney-GoneraTif Department to  recommend a number of constables  fr*r*ser'vice"late"in June. -These ton  .were named by the department. They  wont out, and, after remaining 3G  days, returned to the city a week ago.  Tho ten are troubled because the C. P.  Si. has not yet paid them for tho work  they did.���������Toronto Telegram.  Cranbrook Shews Kootenay the Way.  The Mineral exhibit at the East  Kootenay exhibition at Cranbrook,  September 25, 20 and 27, promises to  be one of the largest mineral exhibits  ever held in British Columbia. Already much interest is being taken by  those who are in any way connected  with mining. Many and various  are the ore samples which are being  seiit in to the secretary from every  part of the district. This will be the  most important of the many attractive exhibits, and as Cranbrook is  situated in the very heart of a district  which is full of mines and minerals, -it  will prove very instructive to visitors  who have not the opportunity at "their  own places of residence of inspecting  the beautiful specimens and mineral  bearing rock which people in Cranbrook have. Ib strikes one also that  in making this mineral exhibit the  most important feature at the exhibition thc nianagenieiit':ris"acting  wisely, for it will give the outer world  some faint idea of the immense resources of South East Kootenay. We  are informed that this exhibit will  form the nucleus of a permanent  mineral display in Cranbrook.  LATEST NEWS  Passenger Train Held  M. K. & T.  up on  CANADIAN BOAT AHEAD AGAIN  Hon. R. McBride is away with D.  Murphy M. P. P.. on a visit to the  Similkameen country, which according to the Ashcroft Journal will extend 10 days from last Monday.  J. P.   Loughriir as  Arbitrator  Mediation may be tried - within the  next few days as a means of amicably  settling the strike of the C.P.R. trackmen which now, at the end of the  seventh week, appears no nearer a  termination than on the day the men  were called out by President Wilson of  the international organization. The  principle of mediation appeal- to be  favored by local members of the  Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen.  Moreover, the feeling seems to be that  the interests of the striking trackmen  would be'safer in the hands of a Canadian, in whom' they would - have  implicit confidence, and that Mr. J. P.  Longhrin] of Toronto, would fill the  bill in tms respect. -Mr. Loughrin'was  formerly organizer in Cauda for the  American Federation of Labor, but .his  commission was cancelled by President  Gompers because he identified himself  actively with' the agitation for an  export duty on nickel and pulp- wood.

The said important amendment gives  ' trackmen ..earning S1.25 ti day  when  at work and now of course not earning  even   that,   full    pnwc.v   leave-, and  liberty;   if' the   prqvincial    attorncy-  . general consents, to enter suit against  theO.P.B. to recover from  the company., one   thousand dollars   or such  portion of it as the sitting magistrate  may.award, .the government Having  curefu.iy "amended" itself out of all  power ot interference in  the matter.  'Why" does not Sir   "Wilfrid   tell  the  trackmen to go.to the devil at once and  have done with it. . He might -Justus  ... l'j<-'  well dp that as give them His blessing  ana teli,them to go and sue the C.P.R.  - Thefact of the matter is the act Has  been deliberately so framed  as to be  useless.. It is simply a barefaced and  impudent fraud on the working men  of Canada.  1   r"  If. Sir   Wilfrid   and   his colleagues  ���������want to see how an Alien Labor Act is  run when it is meant for business, -all  they have/to do, is.to try and cross  into the United States at Detroit under  a' cqioti-act as servants of some individual or company.. They won't iind  anybody chasingl round after the  attorney.-general for leave to buck up  against the Standard-Oil Trust or J.  Pierpoinc Morgan's Big Six. Tliey  will find instead an official of the  government ready to take prompt and  practicaVcognizance what has been by  law created an offence.' He isn't, there  for show or to fool the electors. He is  there toTdo.-'business. We have an  ���������official-appointed for tHissamebusiness"  too. Atleast.'we have a man appointed  so that the government can say that  there is an official, appointed for this  business. In reality he is only tliere  to prevent anything of the kind beitig-  ilone. It is a~ fact that two men  brought in from Seattle by '.he C.P.R.  to take the place of the striking trackmen, went to this worthy's oflice  and did then nnd there offer to make  affidavit to.the elTect'lhat'they had so  been brought in under contract by the  C.P.R. Inquiries made from this point  us to what happened elicited the re-  1 joinder that he Had referred the matter  ��������� to the Labor Department. Ten to one  if the department was communicated  ���������with one would find that they* had  referred it back to their man out here  and they.can be guaranteed to keep it  up, going i through the. motions and  doing nothing till^.the stiike is ovor  and lhe whole business hits . been  pigeon-holed and forgotten.  A_s for our British Columbia representatives at Ottawa, onlv one of  them. Italph Smith, has so far given  any sign tbat he is even aware that  such a thing as a C P. R. track mens  strike'is on. ALr. Ifctlph Smith got in  to his seat asthe great champion of  labor. Tliis strike however does not  appear to work him to much enthusiasm. ' "When a. champion has to  explain -why'it was he lay low,* one  may take it for granted that his  services have not been, of a. very dis-  . tinguished or satisfactory nature. As  to our. own member for Tale-Cariboo  -nobodv .ever seems  to  even  On   Monday.   June    10,    Lhe    first  authorized strike over participated  in  hy members of the 13. R. T. of A.  was  called on the .Maine Central Railway,  after every argument   known   to   the  general grievance committee Had been  exhausted in a futile effort to Have the  grievances ofthe  mainlonanee-of-w'ay  department employes on  that  system  satisfactorily adjusted.   On .Inly 3 the  strike was declared oil' by   Chairman  John Hogan, and the men returned to  their former positions under an agree -  ment  made* with   (jcncral    .Manager  Evans that there would be no discrimination against any   of  them   for  the  part they had taken in the strike or on  account of their membership in  their  craft  organization.     The   concession  gained to all underhands on the entire  system,    excepting    the      Rockland  branch, was an advance in wages of 10  cents per day.   All foremen  receiving  less thai) .$1.7o per day had their wages  increased to that   figure,   and   a   promise is made that an increase   will   be  given   to   those   not   included   in the  present  settlement  just  as   soon   as  possible.  The men would, perhaps, have been  able to gain, further concessions by  holding out longer, which they would  have- done had they not been disappointed in the action of the B. L. E.  and O. R. C, which they Had confidently expected would co-operate with the  B. L. F., B. R. T. and the O. R. T. in  securing a settlement of the matters in  dispute between the M O. Railway and  its trackmen. Individual members of  both the B.L.E. and O.R.C. it is  pleasing to note, rendered all the  assistance, possible for them to render  as individuals, but no official action  was taken by them as in the case of  the other railway brotherhoods.���������  Trackmens'Advocate. ���������-  Slocan   City   division   and   can   treat  them at an equitable rate, returning to  lhe producer a fair proportion of what  he produces.     If  cinches  go   in  this  egam the government has a lmid pipe.  ft'does not  have  to kniu kle down to  any transportation, smelter or refinery  monopoly.    It can   take  lhe   miner's  ore,  treat it,   for   what    it   costs   and  return the balance.    It does tint need  lo skin    prospect   owners  and   small  producers iu order to live. Its business  ability should furnish it with common  sense oiioiigh to keep  lhe lead  stacks  smoking and its concern for the public  .welfare should impel il to see that t.he  producers were not dealt with in a way  that leads to the bankruptcy court.  This is what Hie Slocan wants and  it wants ii bad. It is all right to go  round yammering about hampering  private industry, socialism, vested  rights and all that kind of old gull",  but drawing to a knot Hole won't  catch a lumber yard, and if the Sloeati  waits until private industry gives up  its vested rights to gouge the public it  will be still waiting when Gabriel  blows that* golden horn.  This i.s a strait business proposition for a business government tn consider. It is not a wild-eyed, hair-  brained chimer.i. 11, is what, the peoplo  want and it is something the government can give ifilsnienibers will shake  the bay out of their hair and rise In  lhe emergency. Such n policy introduced by an embryo minister, of mines  would find favor. lt. is up lo Mi*  Dunsmuir. If Mr. Dunsmuir means  lo do business he should come on wilh  his gu.-iranlee.

How a Miner is Apt to Get Left  on His Assay Values.  An article in a it-cent  is-,ue   of   the  Spokesman-Review  opens   up  a discussion on   the   Uisia   of  charges   on  smelting ore in the following article:  "For some strange teason there   are  many mining men who do not understand the litui-s on whicli smelters pay  for ore.     A   good   many miners with  promising properties expect thut they  will get the assay  values   on   a   shipment, loss the freight  and   treatment  charge.      In   this   fond   hope a good  many people think they have ore that  will net them a good return, when   in  ftict it will not pay for being handled.  This condition is particularly   true   of  copper ores.  "It is not, a pleasant Usk to undeceive the miner who believes that  he hits-a shipping grade of ore. In'  justice to himself, however, he ought  to know exactly the system of smelter  payments. Then he can figure exactly what he can get.  "The iiasnycr who tests a piece of  rock calculates lhc value of the gold  at $20.07 an ounce, thc copper atulxmt  I0J cents a pound and the silver at  about 00 cents an ounce.  "lie furnishes a certificate something like this :  Gold, at $20.07 per ounce .$   4.13  Silver, -1 ounces at 00c per ounce    2.40  Copper, 1 per cent (or 80 pounds) at  1(5 Jc per pound     13.20  Total $10.73  "Tho mine owner may figure that it  will cost him, say, SI a ton to haul  his ore to the railroad, $1.50 for railway fi eight aud $G for smelter  charges. That would make a" total of  $11.50. As his assav value is $10.73 a,  ton, he believes that he should -make  a profit of $S.23 a ton. Possibly he  has 100 tons of his first class ore on  tho dump, and he counts on getting a  profit of over SSO0 from the smelter.  ������������������But the smelter would not pay  anything like $10.73 for the ore. ��������� The  smelters have an arbitrary system of  their own settling. The customary  practice is to deduct o per tent, fiom  the gold and from the silver values for  lefin'mg charges. They are. perhaps  justified in this, for the refinery sometimes pays the smelter for only 95 per  cent, of the gold at S20 an ounce and  for silver at the current market price,  which is now 59J cents.  "It is in paying for copppr that the  smelter makes the biggest reduction.  An aid Cornish custom is to pay for no  copper except the amount  in excess  of 1.3 per cent.     If the  ore  does not   -  assay more than 1.3 per cent the miner  gets nothing at all for the copper: This  custom _ was   started  when   smelting  was a primitive business, and a good    '  deal of copper was lost in   inattein_j,..  Nowadays metallurgy   has, been  improved sc much that only about .3 of 1^ .  per cent, of copper is lost.   Nevertheless the   smelters usually charge the  old toll of 1.3 per cent.    In addition to  this they only pay for copper at about  10 cents   a   pound   instead  of  at 16J  cents, the market price.    This deduc-"  tion is alleged to cover the  refining  charge. -   .  "The assay.value of ore carrying 4  per cent, copper is $13.20. The smelter,-'  however, deducts 1.3 per cent, leaving   ,  2.7 per cent, or 54 pounds, for which it  pays 10 cents a pound, or S5.40.  "The smelter payment, therefore, is  about like this.  Gold.' at  $20   per   oz.,   less 3  percent $  Silver, 4: oz., at 59Jc,  per oz.,  less 5 per cent   Copper, 4 percent, less 1.3 pet-  cent, 34 pounds, at 10c per  pound     - 5 40  3 80  .28  Total $  11.48  "Out of this must come smelter  charges. $G per. ton; wagon haul,* $4,  and rail w.-iy-freights.-Sl��������� 50-per-ton;���������  making a total of $1150. As the  smelter only paid at the rate of $11.4-8  a ton, there is a net loss of 2 cents pet-  ton.  "Instead of making a profit oj over*  $S00onhis   shipment,   therefore,  the  mineowner has ������uffeied a lo������  of $2,  and that does not include the   cost  of  mining.  "These deductions made by the  smelters are a never ending source of  bitterness between smeltermen and  mining mer. On their face they  appear almost a hold-up. In deducting 1.3 per cent from the copperas-says  the smelter makes a clear profit of  aliout $2.50 a ton. The deduction of  a por cent from the gold and the  silver is a profit that varies with the  richness of the ore. In some cases  these deductions alone aro enough to  pay big profits for the smelter, with a  corresponding loss of dividends for  the mine. Smeltermen defend the  tolls with thc plea that if they did not  get the tolls they would have to raise  their smelting rates. It all amounts  to alxmt the same thing in the end  thev saw"'  ���������You can get Bennett's White.  Gutta-Percha Fuse at C. B. Hume &  Co.'s.

It is very likely to do  a lot of damage and with a little wind  blowing it is liable to spread to tlie  track as it is working that way.  Engineer Green and stall" have gone  up today to survey the Oyster group.  Professor Blockberger says he will  have about twelve men .working all  winter on his Kingston group_l___  Tete Jaune Cache Mica.  The following report was contribute 1  to the geological department by Mr.  McEvoy iind printed by them. Itgivis  the result of explorations made iu 'OS  in the vicinity of Tete Jaune Cache:  '* On the southwest side of the  valley, opposite Tete Jaune Cache, on  Mica Mountain, a great many mica  schislsare found dipping S.-tij degree.-;  W. al angles of ;>() degrees lo SO d;-  grees. This series includes- dark glittering mica-schist, easily weathering,  thinly foliated, garnetiferous mica-  schist, wilh a high percentage of mica  iind garnet, hard garnetiferous mica-  schist in massive beds, bauds of dark,  fine-grained micaceous rock apparently  of eruptive origin aud layers of fine-  firained gneiss, whiih in some  instances al least.is certainly inlrusivo.  The whole series, while dill'er'mg  somewhat from the Shuswap series of  the southern interior of Rritish  Columbia, shows the main characteristics of thiil series and mav be. classed  its such. The age nf this series us  given by Dr. D.iwsou. is Archaean.  The wide valley intervening between  these rocks and those of Cambrian age  opposite, is covered by superficial  deposits and hides the line of contact.  It would be necessary to assume a  grent fault, along this valley to explain  the altitude of the rocks of the Shuswap series, if the apparent dip of these  rocks were the real dip'uf the original  bedding, but such is not lhe case.  The rocks are extremely foliated and  all trace of the original bedding is  destroyed. This foliation is roughly  parallel lo that seen in the Cambrian  rocks across the valley where the  original bedding could still be distinguished. As it was there independent of the dip nf tbe bedding, il cannot  here be taken lo hnve any  significance.  in the.determinatior. of. the, thickness  r.****,**n ���������=*.->   trzx    .|IM1*.|)  f*.       ������'?\f if    ,j,  ciiliulll NJ    \lxi$  fs A TT >X %V T$'  Business Lots froni $150 Up  wSidence  SOLE  AG ENT.  hN-ry  w  REVELSTOKE  B.
