TWO, DOLLARS  A  Y!���;,.];.  THE   HALL.   MINES   DIVIDEND.  Ten Per Cent Declared Upon Ordinary; Shares  and/Seven par Cent on 'Preference:  The fifth ordinary general meeting of  the Hull Mines Limited was held in London on the afternoon of Wednesday, December lijth, when the report of the directors was received and adopted, as well  as the auditor's statement of the company's accounts and balance sheet. The'  action of the directors in paying a dividend of seven per cent upon tlie preference shares was confirmed, and their recommendation that: a dividend of 10 per  cent be paid upon the ordinary shares  was adopted.  The accounts submitted to the meeting  showed that the company's gross surplus  on the year's operations was -C30,'i.i7, Ss or  in round numbers, 8150,000. At the close  ot tho last, fiscal year rlie compa.ny had on  hand ore and matte valued at. JtlO.SoO, -H  5d, nnd on Sept. tfOi h, I SOT. the value of  the ore matte and metallurgical products  on hand was -CM.85."), 10*,, _d. The total  income of the company for the year is <-et  a ti-J-IS,(iu(i, Ss, yd, which is made up by the  product on hand, matte and copper sales  aggregating -CI-Sl.OoG, .">-'. -Id, and miscellaneous items, such as runt--, assay charges  and transfer fees. The cost of mining,  including wages, salaries, stores, repairs  and general expenses is given as 4My,078,  ���Is, 0d, which, with the addition of taxes,  gives a total of $ I.LOW,-Is, 2d. The cost  of smelting is given as $IG.IS_, 17s, and  office and general expenses, including interest, brings the total expenditures in  British Columbia, up to ��,1)5,337. 10s, lOd.  The company's expense account gives  the cost of mining for the year at .��l~),o'i(),  or $-1.15 per ton of ore mined. From the  figures furnished by the company it is impossible to arrive exactly at the cost of  smelting. The statement does not show  what proportion of the product on hand  at the end of either year was smelter product or crude ore. nor does it give the  number of tons represented in tlie expenditure of -C7.9-S for custom ores. Assuming that the ore on hand was the  same at the close of each year, and that  the ore purchased held about the value  of the War Eagle ore, which comprised  the great bulk of the company's purchases  in the period covered by the statement,  the cost of smelting would range in the  neighborhood of from $-l.T_ to $5 per ton.  The expenditures under the head of  office and general expenses in British Columbia, and general expenses, director's  fees, traveling and office expen-.es in London, foot up to the respectable total of  !..'_i.00() for the year. Jt will thus be seen  that the expenses of this nature constitute a charge of over 75 cents upon every  ton of ore mined during the year.  The Directors' Report.  The directors beg to submit to the  shareholders the statement of accounts  and balance sheet for the year, ending  30th September, -1.807, duly certified Lby  the auditor, being the fourth balance  sheet issued since the formation of the  company.  This balance sheet shows a gross surplus of income over expenditure amounting to _i.i0.357 S--., which, together with  ��1,930 (is, Ad. brought forward from 1S0G,  makes a sum oi' -��32,287 14s. -Id. Out of  this amouut the directors' have already  appropriated -fit,750 to the''pay luetic of a  dividend of 7 per cent on the preference  shares, which appropriation you are asked  to confirm, and out of the balance remaining, after writing off-? the sum of ��5,-lS9  15s. Sd. for depreciation on' buildings,  plant, and machinery, they recommend  that a dividend of 10 per cent be paid  upon the ordinary shares of the company,  which will absorb -��25,000, and that the  balance remaining, vi/., ��11 ISs. Sd., be  carried forward to the credit of the account for the current year.  The result of the year's working is, in  the opinion of the board, very:satisfactory, when it is remembered that for,the  first nine months the difficulty of obtaining a regular supply of ore prevented continuous work at the smelter, aud that it  was not until the 31st July that the sec-  ���ond smelter started work, and that the  "���impediments, in the'way of obtaining a  free supply of ore from the stopes opened  up in the mine were removed.  The wire tramway has continued to  give satisfaction, and in May advantage  was taken of the opportunity afforded by  the closing down of the blast furnace,  pending a replenishment of the stock of  ore in the ore bins, to renew the wire  rope, and by the introduction of an improved clip-strap, permanence aud regularity iu the working Juive been assured.  The work of opening up the mine has  been intelligently and vigorously proceeded, with, though the board have limited the mine superintendent to the prosecution of work in the main tunnels only,  with a view to developing the ore bodies-  May, and ha,'ve since then done good  work, but experience has shown'that, in  order to reap full benefit from them it  i will be necessary to erect a second rever-  beratory furnace and roasting oven; these  are now in course of construction, and  when completed will have a capacity of  outturn of about 10 tons of copper bullion  per day.

No work has therefore  been done on the gold lead in the Daylight claim, referred to in the directors'  report last year, but under the favorable  conditions upon which we enter upon the  business of the current year, the directors contemplate resuming work upon  this claim very shortly.  For full particulars of the mining operations, the directors refer the shareholders to the report of the mine superintendent, appended hereto, and would add  that the work which he recommends for  the current year has been in progress  since the end of September with satisfactory results.

A very long report from M. S..Davys,  superintendent of the company's mines,  was submitted. It gave the gross tonnage  mined during the year at -19..-5-10 tons, of  which -15,823 tons were graded as first-  days ore, 9-10 tons as second-class ore, and  2,7(57 tons as waste sorted out at the ore  bins.   These figures, when compared with  the company's statement of income show  char,  r.he run  of   the   mine in   the   Mall  Mines   property   does  not*,   (���xc.-od   $13 fit)  per  ton  after  the.   waste  rock  has   been  sorted nut at the ore bins.    In speaking  of t.he plan*-  foe the future development  of the property M. S. Davys says:  '.'l-Yoni  rhe ore re-crves-  -it,  present opened  out  and available for stoping, I estimate that  r-here are (50,000 tons which can  be mined  from the present workings.    In order to  keep up a reserve ahead  for a  daily out-  pur, of two hundred tons, it is- impend ive  chat  the other reserves  proved   by  diamond drill tire opened out ready for stoping ut as early a date as possible, to more  fully determine the extent and  values of  same, so that the richer and poorer portions can be worked in such proportion as  will yield a uniformity of values consistent with the daily output.  The mine generally has opened out well and now shows  indications of, in  place of separate ore  bodies,   being a continuous and  defined  vein, found to be faulted and al*-o cut by  a. dyke, which has also thrown the vein a  little to the north.    Parts of r.he vein consist of almost barren rock, in  places hard  to determine from  the country rock, but  where   followed   have  in   most  instances  proved up payable ore, so that to properly explore the vein, mining proper must  be  resorted  to, and  all  such   work  carefully watched,  tis the ore is distributed  irregularly through the vein."  NONE   HONEST   BUT   HIMSELF.  A   VERY   BAD   SYSTEM.  the  A Critic Who Impug'nes the Personal Honesty  of R. B.   "Wood and Joseph Pitre.  The British Columbia Mining Critic, an  alleged  mining paper published  in Vancouver,   has an absurd   criticism  of  r.he  Yukon Goldfields, Limited, in its  issue of  Saturday   last.    It   is   evident   that  1 lie  editor of The Critic knows nothing of the  Yukon   Goldfields,  Limited,   nor   of   bhe  methods of prospecting.   It* this were not  the case he would not ridicule the company merely because its capital was set at  the modest sum of $30,000.    Having done  this   he   proceeds   to  insinuate, that the  motives of those iu charge  of the affairs  of  the company are   dishonest.    Me enlarges upon the ignorance of thechairman  of the company in  stating  that the first  general   news   from    the   Yukon   would  probably be received  in Loudon  in July  next, and then iuipugnes the honesty of  the prospectors whom  the company have  dispatched to. the Yukon.    He says that  it   will   take these   men  till late  in  the  spring  to  reach   Dawson City, and that  they won't be honest when chey get there.  That  they will not be able to purchase  any claims of value,  but that they may  hunt up   "wild   cats,''   which   would  be  likely   enough   for   the requirements of  such   a   speculative   company,  a.s  "wild  cats" are good enough for English "gull  catching."  The Yukon Goldfields, Limited, against  which all this abuse is directed, is the offspring of the London & British Columbia  Goldfields, Limited, one of the most conservative mining companies operating in  West Kootenay.    It is  a company that  does its work ou its properties, and nor, in  the newspapers.    It is the company that  is   systematically   developing   the   Ymir  mine on Wild Horse creek, which is now  looked upon as one of the best properties  in West Kootenay.    When the Klondyke  excitement reached Loudon  last summer  the men interested in the,, London ���& British Columbia Goldfields, formed   a  separate    company   known   as   the   Yukon  Goldfields,  Limited,  for   the   immediate  purpose of sending a   prospecting party  into   the   Yukon,  and   for   present   purposes   the   capital   was   fixed   at   ��0000.  J.  Roderick Robertson,  the  manager of  parent company in British Columbia, was  appointed  manager of  the   Yukon company.    He arranged for the outfitting of  R. B. Wood, then superintendent of the  Ymir mine, and Joseph   Pitre, an  experienced miner, and one of the locators of  Ymir.   They started out,with ten horses,  two   boats and   lo. months provisions���a  rather   respectable   outfit���-and.   reached  Dawson City on September 29th, almost  three mouths before the absurd criticism  appeared  in  The   Critic  of   Vancouver.  They   were   men   fairly   well    respected  around Nelson,  and their friends would  prefer that The Critic would find them  dishonest before it so'cheerfully charged  them with dishonesty.    It might also be  well  for The Critic  to  give the   Yukon  Goldfields company a chance to determine  whether it  will   be necessary to increase  its   capital    or   not.     This   will   depend  largely upon the reports of the company's  prospectors, who up  to  the  date of the  latest advices had   just  arrived   on  the  ground at Dawson City.  Monday's Council Meeting.,  At the regular meeting of the council  Monday evening alderman Fletcher,  chairman of the public works committee,  reported verbally upon the application of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  for water from the city mains for use in  their locomotives. Alderman Fletcher  recommended that the company be supplied with water provided the company  erects a proper tank and pays a monthly  rental of -7-20.  The  public  works committee   was appointed a  special  committee to select a  cemetery site and  report upon the same  at the next meeting of the council.  The following accounts were passed:  W.

Two weeks ago the local school board  requested thedepartment of education to  provide foi; an additional teacher for the  school, an increase in the stiltiries of the  present teachers, and for the increase of  $200 in the incidental allowance. The  board was careful to make clear the necessity for the increase iu the allowances  if the school was to be kept up to the required standard, in reply to this S. D.  Pope wrote that the inspector recently  appointed for the district of Kootenay  and Yale would arrive iu Nelsou during  the first, week in. January, and that he  would report upon the needs of the Nelson  school.  While it may be inferred from this thtit  the department of education does not consider the local school trustees capable of  determining the requirements of the Nelson school, it should not be forgotten that  it is a fault of the present system rather  than  of  the government or   the   educational department.    At present the government furnishes every dollar that is expended upon the schools of Nelson, Kaslo,  ���Rossland  and  other incorporated cities,  and school appropriations are regukited  more by the funds available by the government for school purposes than by the  actual requirements of the schools., .Since  the government finds the money it must  of necessity regulate school expenditures.  Tlie only solution for the present difficulty  will be the vesting of the control of the  school in the municipality of Nelson  by  creating Nelson  a school  district.     The  present system is unfair to both the government and the people of Nelson.   The  collection of the provincial school tax is  not properly attended to-some pay and  some   don't-and    the   efficiency   of   the  school suffers accordingly.    Jf the control  of the Nelson  school were  vested in  the  people of Nelson  it is safe  to  say that  much better schools could  be maintained  out of the proceeds of the school tax and  the   customary   government   allowance  upon attendance, than are maintained at  present, and the government's ed'-ca tioual  burdens would be very much lightened.  to the vacancy upon' the supreme court  bench win-ad by the retirement of justice  -McOreie-hl*. , Mr. Irvir.g was a member of  the well-known firm of Bodwell, Irving -!_  Duff.

La  Bau and Forin  , On Wednesday Afternoon.  Drs. LaBau and Forin performed an operation on Wednesday afternoon, the like  of which has probably never before been  attempted. In plain terms.it amounted  to the bolting of a new jaw upon a man  in the place of a jaw which had been shot  off two years before.  Two years ago this month Thomas Cay-  zei-j of Ainsworth. through the accidental  discharge of a gun, had his jaw all but  completely shot off. .The first physician  that'he went.to pronounced his case hopeless owing to the nature and extent of  the injury, and with this consoling  thought Cayzer came to Nelson on-the  evening of the accident. He consulted  Dr. LaBau, who trimmed up the wound  and fastened it together with hair-lip  needles. Cay/.er was left in this shape  until the dead parts of the remaining  piece of jaw bone should come away from  the live bone, and the last piece of dead  bone did not come away until this summer. This left him in fairly good condition save there was no form to the lower  part of the face, aud that being unable to  wear false teeth he could not chew any  food. His stomach also commenced to  give out.  Dr. La Ban then suggested to him that  he have a plate made to take the place of  the lost "jaw, after which false teeth could  be fitted into his month. It was explained  to him that the operation would be an experiment in that it had never been tried  before, but Cay/.er cheerfully agreed to  accept all risk. A jaw composed of an  alloy of gold and silver, was fashioned by  W. M. Sprott, a local jeweler, for the purpose of securing an outline for the face,  and all was in readiness when Cayze-r  presented himself tor the operation' on  Wednesday. The patient was put under  chloroform and the lower part of the face  was opened up. The artificial jaw was  then bolted to the angle of the jaw bone  on one side of the face and to the, very  small piece of bone on the other side.  The patient came through the operation  well and the result of it will be watched  ��� with interest by the medical profession.  Drs. La Ban and Form were assisted in the  operation by Dr. .Martin, of Kaslo, who  was visiting Dr. La ,1-ati, and by Dr. \V.  J. Quit*Ian, of this city.  The Bank Offers to Buy the Bonds.

Daniel McNaughton  Receives a Fatal  Wound  Whilom Tracking Doer on Saturday.  Dr.   Arthur,   coroner,   held ,an   inquest  Wednesday morning for the purpose of  enquiring into the circunistanc-s attending   tho  death   of   Daniel  McNaughton,  whose body  was  found  in  the  woods a  few miles from Park Siding on the Slocan  river  road,  on  Tuesday.    The jury   was  compos-ed of J. H. Matheson, foreman, II.  F. Murray, J. A.  Kerr, A. J. Marks,'J. 1'.  Cameron and William Herron.  From the* evidence it appeared that McNaughton left .Joly's wood camp at Park  Siding, on Saturday  morning, on a  di-er  hunting  expedition,  accompanied   by  a  relative named Frasi-r.    According to the  evidence of _Yaser the two worked their  way   up  into   the  mountain.**   and   came  upon'a deer in the afternoon.   McNaughton wanted Fraser to make a detour of  the hill, but a.s he was not  familiar with  the country he declined.    He offered   to  follow the deer with McNaughton, but as  McNaughton did not consider this necessary he decided  to return to camp, and  McNaughton said he would  be back that  evening.   About 20 minutes after Fraser  left he heard  three shots  iu quick  succession and he returned, but not seeing  McNaughton he went back to camp. Sunday morning McNaughton,.not haviug returned a searching party started out to  look  for him.    They  were  unsuccessful,  but upon  the following day came across  the body of a deer, and the tracks of a  wounded one. These tracks were followed  on Tuesday, when the body of McNaughton was found between two logs, and the  rifle,  with an  empty cartridge 111  it, beside  the body.    It  was evident that in  following the wounded deer McNaughton  had accidently discharged his riile in getting over the  logs.   The  bullet entered  the mouth and  came out at the back of  the head.   A verdict was rendered in accordance with the facts.  |];*Daniel McNaughton was about -10 years-  old,    fie left his home in Lancaster, Ontario, about 11 years^ago, and after spend-  ..iug some years in the  western states he  came  to  West  Kootenay.     He followed  the business of prospecting tind hunting,  but at the time of his death was employed  at Joly's .wood   camp.     He  was known  by sight to several of the jurors who had  seen him around town.  Heinze's View of Heinze's Rights.  The Rossland Miner is very much afraid  that the provincial government will allow  the holders of the V. V. Ac E.'-railway  charter to get away with the cash bonus  of $-1000 per mile, which the holders of  the C. cfc W. railway charter look upon as  theirs. The Miner does not go so far as  to say that there is no necessity for bon-  using any railway into the Boundary district. It carefully avoids this truth, but  seeks to convince its readers that the government would be making a very grave  mistake in gran ting" aid to any charter-  speculator other than F. Aug. lieih/.e, the  arch-charter-speculator of the province.  'If'the Rossland' Miner was an independent paper, and not the purchased organ  of F. Aug. Mein/.e its views in this connection might be entitled to some consideration. . ".'  The Heinze Contract About Finished.  The contract made by the Le Roi Mining Company for the delivery of 75,000  tons of ore to the Heinze smelter at Trail  willbe completed this month, after which  all the output of the Le Roi will'go the  company's smelter at Northport. The  smelter at Northport is about completed,  and the company expect to have the  furnace blo.wn in by January 15th. Heinze  will have to do some rustling after 'January-if he attempts to keep the Trail,  smelter running.  Mining-Operators in Luck.  Messrs. Braden and Mathews are having great luck in their development of  the Lucky Jim ;tn:l Tariff mines. At a  depth of 2<S0 feet the Lucky Jim has a 10-  foot ore body. The ore concentrates four  to one and gives a mill product averaging  75 ounces silver and 7U per cent lead. The  mine produces 100 tons per day.' On the  Tariff, an Ainsworth property, ore has  been struck in the .JOO-foot level, assaying  50 ounces silver and 75 per cent lead. This  ore body is i-ih feet wide. The Tariff is  producing 50 tons per day.   '  Steamer Nakusp Burned.  The -Canadian Pacific Kail way Company's'steamer Nakusp wtis burned to the  water's edge Friday morning. The Nakusp was at the wharf tit Arrowhead  when the fire was first noticed. Further  than that the fire started in the galley of  the steamer, and that it was burned.'to I  the water's edge, no particulars have  reached Nelson. The Nakusp cost about  $.30,000 to build.

For ilm-t; who  demand that like treatment be mused out  to' the owners of, coal mines ami  the uv. n-  ers of  precious   metal   mines   t.he  World  has only its characteristic abust*.    In di.s-  cusMiig the question the World says:  "The conl-bciii-iiif-; lands owned and eontrollerl by 1I1P.-.C  companies, and now upemted by them, were crown  -(���ranted lo them direct, oi; purchased by llicm from those  10 whom such a title was issued, many years ago���in  fact we believe before t.he pi'iiny-a-liner- who arc now so  virulently attacking���the Messrs.

The World in this, as 'in all other matters wherein the greed of wealthy corporations encroaches upon the  rights of the  people, is dishonest.    By persistent lying  the World  hopes to  mislead the  people.  The crown  grants  which   were  issued to  the  owners   ot   the coal' mines on   Vancouver Island were no more absolute*, rliau  were the crown grants which were is-ueii  to the owners of quartz claim-in Kootenay and elsewhere throughout the province.  Premier Turner imposed a tax upon  the output of  the crown-granted quartz  ���  mines, and  he  would  have imposed   the  same tax upon   the output of the crown-  granted coal 'mines had  he been honest.  It is on  record   that at the time this tax  was imposed  premier Turner sought to, ���  mislead the people of Kootenay by sending a telegram to the Bank of British Columbia at .Nelson   to the effect that there  was already a tax  imposed upon the output of the coal   mines.   This  was true in  that it applied to all coal mines save those  operated by the  Dunsmuir interests aud  by the New Vancouver Coal Company, but  other than these mines there was not and ���  had not been a coal mine operating in the  province.    The action of premier Turner  in this matter was clearly to mislead. The  World in its subserviency to the government and the coal barons makes itself absurd.    It employs the term "royalty" and  from .this'.argues   that   the  government  could not impose a tax upon the output of  tlie coal mines if it', were; sufficiently .honest-and sufficiently independent to do so.  The failure of  the government to  treat  the collieriesof the Dunsmuirs in thu same  manner as the precious  metal  mines  of  Kootenay is the best kind of evidence that  the government's  action   was controlled  by the Duumuirs.  It is evidence that will  be accepted by tbe,electors..-in preference  to the bald'.statement to the contrary by  such a "journalistic strumpet as the Vancouver World.  THE MEN' PROM' KOOTENAY   GOT  THERE.  Made the Trip l'rom Nelson to Dawson City  in Seventy-live Days.  On the 17th day of August, last Billy  Perdue, accompanied by- Bob" Wixou,  Jack Gannon, Jack Case, "Coffee Jack,"  and "Irish Jack," left Nelson for the  Klondyke. Perdue and P. Burns Ac Co.  had au idea that,beef could be landed at  Dawson City and sold at a profit. They  had the means and the experience.  Eighty head of beef cattle and 11 horses  were .shipped-,to' Vancouver, transferred  to steamer, and landed at Dyea. Thence  they were driven over the pass to the  lakes. It isnot known whether the cattle  were'driven through or killed and the  carcasses boated to Dawson. All that is  known is the information, contained in  the following telegram :  Si:..-ni,i:. Dei-ember-'I-t. I!*!I7.  John lloisrux. NcIm-ii:  I'erdue got into Da w-011 wiili  beef .Vovember 1st nil o. K.  WILLIAM  II. CHA.MIilCI'vS.  Mr. Chambers i.s well known in Kootenay tind arrived in Seattle from Dawso'ii  about a month ago. It is supposed that  the two men who left Dawson on November -Jrd, and who arrived on the coast  about ten days ago brought the news.  No later advices from Daw.-on have been  received. When the party-left Nelson no  one acquainted with its leader.had doubts  as to the result of tlit* enterprise. For  eight years he rustled beef cattle into the  towns and camps iu Kootenay in all kinds  of weather, undergoing 'exposure and  hardships that few men could stand. The  boys who went with him were all  "stayers." If they have got, through, the ,  beef should dress .100 pounds to the head,  or 10.000 pounds in all. This at $1 a pound  will.leave a fair margin of profit to the  three men interested in the venture.  Liquidator For the Ibex.  Judge Walkem has appointed Clarence  F.

M. Kellie, the present representative of the north riding of West Kootenay, has renounced his allegiance to the  Turner government. The immediate cause,  for this action  was the appointment  by  the government of .7. D. Sibbald of Revelstoke, to the office of gold commissioner,  but Kellie explains that there has  been  more or less of a. breach between himself  aud the government party for the past  year.    He says-he  will take the earliest  opportunity   of explaining   his   position  to his constituents and obtain an expression of opinion from them with regard  to  his future line  of action.    Kellie's  withdrawal from the Turner party  makes it  Aveaker by two votes than it was at the  opening of the last session.    Speaker Llig-  gin.s, who was for years a  supporter  of  the Davie-Turner party, bid  the government good-bye   when  it  brought in  its  scandalous Cassia, railway bill, and upon  the assembling of the house next session  will   doubtless   resign   the   speakership.  The greed of two combinations is the only  thiug which now holds the Turner majority together���the Dunsmuir family concert and  the British  Pacific  railway  or  Rithet faction.    Either of these influences  if thrown against the government would  cause its defeat in  the  house,   but that  their influence will   be so  exerted is not  to be expected.    Jn exchange for its slip-  port the Dunsmuir family enjoys comparative exemption  from  taxation,   and  the  Rithet faction has more to hope from the  Turner government than they could from  any administration which might succeed  it.    This is the government which the purchased organs owned  by  Lleinze  and the  Dunsmuirs   commend   to   tho   people  of  British Columbia.  TrjK editor of the Rossland Miner has  buen parading his ignorance of provincial  politics again. In reviewing the career  of J. M. Kellie, JM. P. P., he says that his  sobriquet is "Let ITer Flicker Kellie,"  ��� which .he earned by a speech made in  favor of the British Pacific railway  scheme. .Such was not the case. Kellie's  "Let Her Flicker" speech was made in  connection with the government's policy  of expending $1,000,000 upon parliament  buildings at Victoria, it was made before the British Pacific question had became an issue, and while chief justice  Theodore Davie was premier. The editor  of the Miner should not attempt to cite  facts. He is in his element in reeling out  ������' fulsome praises of premier Turner aud his  cabinet, or in hurling billingsgate at those  who oppose the cabinet. To tretit with  facts requires some knowledge, the beslobbering of an incapable cabinet requires none. ,  PitEMlfm Turner and Hon. C. E. Pooley  have commenced proceedings against  Hewitt Bostock, M. P.. Ian Coltnrd, and  W. C. Xichol of the Province, and senator  Tern pieman of the Times for libel. The j  article comphiined of was a review of the ;  circumstances connected with the appearance of tho names of premier Turner and  Hon. C. I_. Pooley upon the prospectuses  of two or three -shady Klondyke mining ami trading concerns. The writer  set out rather clearly  that the members  -o'f "the cabinet were using their official  positions for private gain, in short that  they were acting as decoy ducks for the  purpose of aiding in the promotion of  mining and trading schemes of the wildcat order. The article was a fair criticism  of the action of public men and is quite  in line- with the opinion of the independent press of -the province, the press of  Cauada and the press of Great Britain. It  first appeared in the Province of December lith, and was copied from the Province into the Times. It is significant  that the premier and the president of the  council have commenced criminal proceedings rather than civil. They evidently  do not wish to run up against the same  snag that chief justice Theodore Davie  did, when as attorney-general he sued* the  Colonist for damages for alleged libel.  Upon this occasion the jury awarded attorney-general Davie a verdict with $1  for damages. Iu view of this precedent  neither premier Turner nor Hon. C. I_.  Pooley could reasonably expect more than  -dx-bits damages should they succeed in  proving their case.  The government organs of the province  are wonderfully consistent.   The Turner  cabinet broke faith with J. M. Kellie, and  Kellie   renounced   his   allegiance  to  the  cabinet.    The   Ilevelstoke  Herald  thereupon calls upon Kellie to resign for the  reason that he was elected to support the  Turner   government.    Very   good.    Hon.  G. B. Martin was elected upon the explicit  understanding that he would not vote one  cent of public,  money to the British  Pacific railway promoters.    Upon this issue  Martin pledged himself.    When the matter came up in the house Martin violated  his pledge by voting for the so-called railway aid bill, which placed $920,000 within  reach of the British Pacific charter speculators.    Although this happened last session when there would have been a chance  for a by-election to secure the constituency  representation in the next session of the  legislature,   there   was  not  the faintest  hint from  the  government organs  that  the man who violated, the express condition of his election should  resign.    In the  case of Kellie resigning there is no possible  chance of the district securing representation in the present parliament.    The contention of tlie Herald in short is, that the  government having broken faith with the  representative  of  the  north  riding,   the  representetive   should  resign   and  allow  the district to remain unrepresented  for  one year.     This  in face of  the  fact that  Kellie was elected  to support the government of Hon. Theodore Davie and not the  government of premier Turner.  the meeting at Cody i.s certainly without  precedent in the history of company procedure in this province. Instead of a  Christmas dividend shareholders in the  Noble Five company are now offered six  cents per share for stock which some IS  months ago they purchased at 25 cents,  and they have not even the knowledge of  how this changed condition of affairs was  brought about. Th-^y have been told that  the company shipped in the neighborhood  of MOO tons of concentrates, and they  have also been told that there were approximately .'-0,000 tons of what was supposed to be crude ore carried over the  tramway from the mine to the company's  concentrator. This in itself should furnish  a fruitful subject for investigation.  Ax effort will be made at the next session of the legislature to have the City of  Nelson created a. city school district, so  that the municipality may assume control  of the public school. It is altogether  likely that the government will agree to  this, and it is not improbable that a similar course will be followed with respect to  the schools in the other incorporated  cities of the interior. The educational expenditures are already a heavy tax upon  the revenues of the province, and there is  no valid reason why the provincial government should continue to be put to the  expense of maintaining schools in incorporated cities. In addition to this it is  safe lo say that much better satisfaction  would be secured if the control of the  schools was vested in the people of the  cities. At present there is little or no interest taken in school matters in Nelson,  and in consequence the public school is  not what it should be. Good schools are  essential to the welfare of Nelson. If the  public school iu Nelson is to be kept up to  the standard the people of the city must  be interested in its welfare, and the surest  way to secure that interest is to place  the control of the school in their hands.

Ax effort is  being made by such shareholders in t.he  Noble  Kive  Mining  Company as are dissatisfied with the management of tlie company's affairs to secure  an  independent audit of  the company's  accounts, and a searching   investigation  into the manner in which  the company's  business has been conducted by the directors.   There  is  room  in  this  connection  for the intervention of the attorney-general of the province, in that the officers of  the   company   have   not   complied   with  many of the provisions of the Companies  Act,  and   in  the  interests of the mining  industry of the province it is imperative  that   tlie  attorney-general   should  intervene.    If a proper supervision of mining  companies is observed there is no reason  why  the  holder of  mining stock should  not feel equally safe  with  respect to his  investment as the holder of stock  in any  industrial concern.    That such is  not the  ease with  respect  to  holders of  mining  company  stock   in   this province no  one  will deny.    It is aflirmed by shareholders  in   the  Noble   Five   company   that    the  directors of the company observed neither  the by.-Iaws of tlie company  nor the provisions of the legislature, and the manner  in   which   the   resolution   amending the  company's by-laws was railroaded through  The Bouudry Creek Times publishes  the remarkable statement that the Grand  Forks city council has levied an assessment upon the lands within the corporate  limits for the current year, which has  been made payable on November 20th. As  the land had been previously assessed by  the provincial government, prior to the  incorporation of Grand Forks, the action  of the council is causing much speculation. Of the taxes paid to the provincial  government the corporation has already  received its proportion, and the only explanation that can be offered for the action of the council in levying a second tax  upon the land is that the corporation is a  little short.

One Car Glass  Tnio importance of the information contained  in the annual reports and  statements submitted at the recent meeting of  the Hall  Mines Limited  cannot  well  be  understood.  It demonstrates clearly that,  under   present conditions   a   substantial  profit can be made in the treatment)of $1_  ore in the vicinity of Nelson.    The experience of the  Hall  Mines  shows  that in  the mining and  smelting of  less than 48,-  000 tons  ot  this  low grade  ore, and  the  treating of much  less  than  3000 tons of  custom ores, a gross profit of over $Io0,000  can be made.    This should give a substantial value to many of the claims on Toad  mountain, which will  be very greatly increased upon the completion of the Crow's,  Nest railway with its  assurance of cheap  coke.   The company's  balance sheet also  throws some light upon the question of the  cost of smelters.    The Hall  mines smelter  with a capacity  of '-500 tons  per, day, including the  roaster and  copper furnace,  after more  than a year's  operation has  cost  the company  for construction  and  maintenance    less    than    $100,000.    This  should give a black eye to the bonus hunters  who  have  been  looking  for $1:50,000  and $200,000  bonuses for the erection  of  small smelting concerns at Vancouver and  other points on the coast.
