Death Under Suspicious Circumstances.
New York, March 0.—Miss Magdalene
Doni, 20 years old, died last night in a
room occupied by James J. Connelly under
circumstances so suspicious that Connelly
was locked up in a police station pending
an investigation by the coroner. Connelly
called on Dr. Briekner and urged him to
accompany him at once to his room to
attend a j'oung woman, who he said had
fallen seriously ill while visiting him. Dr.
Briekner found Miss Dorn lying on the
bed dead, and gas was (lowing from two
gas jets. . Connelly seemed greatly agitated, and explained that the young woman
had been visiting him and was suddenly
taken ill. He left her to go i'or the doctor.
He says she must have turned on the gas
during his absence. Connelly said that he
and Miss Dorn were soon to have been
married, and he was showing her over his
undertaking establishment,' the rooms
overhead were to have been their home,
when she was taken ill as told above.
The New Cabinet at Madrid.
Madrid, March 0.—The new cabiuet has
been well received by the Conservatives
and business world, but the Democrats

times are predicted. The election for
members of the cortes will take place in
April next. A number of repatriated
soldiers made a demonstration at Valfia

A Queen May Die.
Brussels, March 0.-—Queen Marie Henri-
ette of Belgium,  who is Suffering   from
bronchial   pneumonia,   passed   a   better
.fight.   She slept a little and the doctors
appear satisfied with her condition. .Later

the queen's strength is much diminished
and that a fatal determination of her illness is feared. Physicians are in constant attendance upon her majesty.
Attempted to Capture the Waterworks.
New York, March (5.—A despatch from
Manila, dated 10 a. m. today, reports that
the Filipinos made an attempt to capture
the .waterworks, six miles from Manila.
The attack was repulsed with a loss to the

One of the Kipling. Children Dead.
New York, March 0.—Josephine Kipling,
the six-year-old    daughter of  Rudyard
Kipling, and, oldest of his three children,
died shortly after 0 o'clock this morning.
The child's death took place at the home
of  Miss  Julie  De   Forest,  in  this  city.
Bliss De Forest is  a friend   of  the  Kip-
lings, and Josephine   had   been taken to
her home, so   that  she  could   be  nursed
apart from her father.   The girl became
ill the day after Mr. Kipling took to his
bed,  and  the  doctors   soon   discovered
that "the    disease    was    the    same   as
that    which    had    brought,   her   father
to death's door. She had all the attention
and all the skill employed to save the life
of the author.     Dr. Conland, the Kipling
family   physician,   who has  known  the
child  from   her birth,  came down from
Battlehoro, Vermont, and with Dr. Janeway succeeding in  warding oil' the evil
effects of the disease until today ; but the
little   frame   was not strong enough to
withstand the onslaughts of the disease,
and while her father was slowly winning
his  wife  Josephine died.     Mrs.  Kipling
had paid daily visits  to the girl,  and  it
was for her in  this  multiplicity of her
sorrows   that   the   sympathy  of   many
friends was most earnestly expressed.   It
was generally believed that Mr. Kipling's
condition was such  that the  physicians
would  not  tell him .until he should   be
stronger of the loss he has sustained.

And He Has Been Superceded.
Berlin, March 0.—A high official of the
German navy department has confirmed
the correspondents here of the associated
press   that  the  appointment  of  prince
Henry- of   Prussia;   brother of emperor
William,   to  the command  of   the Bist
Asiatic squadron has been considered for
months   past,   and   was   finally decided
upon as being the best way in which the
emperor could show the American people
that he is thoroughly friendly to them,
knowing that prince Henry is popular in
the United States.     When the official referred to was asked whether the appointment was equivalent to the discharge of
admiral Von Diedrichs,  he said:   '"Not
exactly.   If admiral Von  Diedrichs had
shown  more   tact   last   summer   before
Manila, it would undoubtedly have been
productive of good results all round.   Our
government, uufortunately, was advised
too late of a .number  of  errors   before
Manilla, none of which were reallyimpor-
tant, but they   showed   grave   want  of
tact upon admiral Von Diedrichs's part.
The main trouble was that admiral Von
Diedrichs was insufficiently informed regarding international naval usages in such
delicate    situations.     Consequently,   he
continued  naval   movements, drill,   and
such light practice as if elsewhere than_at
a blockaded port, thus arousing distrust
upon the part of the Americans."   This is
important as being the first official admission that Germany was at fault in Manila
bay. -	
Will Put in a Compressor Plant.
The latest report received from the
Dundee mine, near Ymir, are of a highly
satisfactory nature. Since Frank Rob-
bins, the confidential engineer for Mann
& Mackenzie, made his elaborate report
on the mine several months ago, the development has been proceedintr steadily
and on an extensive scale. When Mr.
Bobbins made his report he stateda that
there were 24,000 tons of ore in sight on
the property. At that time the Dnudee
was not provided with a concentrator,

There is Nothing in the Job.
William P. Robinson has forwarded his
resignation as .sheriff of South  Kootenay
to the provincial government. His reasons
therefore are very explicitly stated in a
letter published below,  written in reply
to one from  the attorney-general asking
why he had  not appointed a deputy at
Kaslo.    Wheu made sheriff Mr. Robinson .
had to furnish bonds for $10,000, so there
must be some responsibility attached  to
the position.   If  there  is responsibility
there should be compensation. Last'month
Mr. Robinson by himself, or deput}*, was
in attendance at sessions of the supreme
court for eighteen days, and besides was
required to meet the judge at trains.  For
i this he did not receive one cent.   During
the month of February his foes for attendances at the county, court amounted to
seven dollars, all of which, and more, had
co be paid over to lawyers for legal advice. At the last session of the legislature,
provision was made for registrars of the
county court at Kaslo, New Denver and
Fort Steele, all of which places are within
the limits of the district over  which Mr.
Robinson is sheriff.   If he is required to
appoint a deputy for one of these places,
he will be required  to appoint deputies
for the''others.'   The sheriff is responsible
for the official acts of his deputies, and
Mr. Robinson does not care to assume the
responsibility.     And   he  is   right.    'Mr'i
Robinson has been an efficient and responsible, official.   The   correspondence  over
the matter is as follows:
this meeting and expressed to be made
between this compauy and its liquidator
of the one part, and the new company
of the other part aud identified by the
signature of the chairman, be, and the
same is hereby, approved, and that the
said liquidator be, and he is hereby, authorized, pursuant to the powers conferred by section 101 of the Companies
Act, 1S02, and the articles of the company,
or some of such powers, to enter into an
agreement with such new company, when
incorporated, in the terms of the said
draft, and to carry the same into effect,
with such (if any) modifications as he
may think expedieut."
These resolutions were agreed to, and
the proceedings then terminated.

Will Absolutely Control the Copper Market.
['.iiUe Miulin. World, Mui-Ob llli.|
We have it upon the most reliable authority that terms have filially been
■agreed'upon' whereby the Anaconda Copper Company will enter the great copper
combine. This virtually settles all doubts
as to the completion of the greatest combine the world has ever known. Other
interests and copper producers must now
of necessity join in, and it will now be
but a short time before the American
Copper Company, as the combine will be
known, will absolutely control this great
industry. What influence this will have
upon Butte, which produces about half
the copper of the world, remains to be
seen. These large interests have combined certainly for no loss, but on the
other hand for gain. So we may naturally expect copper to keep up in price. This
must revert to the benefit of the community.

Five miles from Slocan City, up Springer
creek, is situated the Evening Star,  one
of the most promising mining propositions
in the Slocan.   This,property is equipped
with   a complete hoisting  plant,  steam
pumps,   machine   drills   and   everything
that is necessary for the  proper developing of a mine.   At present the main working shaft is down 100 feet and sinking is
in progress night and day.   A station was
cut and a drift driven on the ledge a distance of 50 feet, at the 100 foot level.    The
vein   averages   two   feet   in   width   and
varies but little in width from the surface
to the bottom of the shaft.   Fifteen  men
are at present employed at the  mine and
more will be added as  room  is  made for
them.   The character of the quartz is a
dry sulphide ore carrying high  values in
both gold and silver, averaging 200 ouuees
in silver and s?80 iu gold per ton. The veiu
is a true fissure in a granite formation,
the strike being north and south  with a
din of GO degrees to the east. This property is a stocked"proposition and the stock
is mostly held by eastern Canadians  and
listed on the Toronto exchange.
New Definition of an Amateur.
The special meeting of the Amateur
Athletic Association of Canada was held
at the Queen,'s ■ hotel, Toronto, last week.
The object of the meeting was the revision of the bylaws and constitution. The
principal change decided upon was the
adoption of the new definition of an amateur. The name of the association was
changed'to the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union. The following is the definition
of an amateur adopted, it being much
stricter than the former-one:
"An amateur is a person who has not
competed in any competition for a staked
bet, moneys private or public, or gate
receipts, or competed with or against a
professional for a prize; who has never at
any period of:nis life taught or assisted in
the pursuit of'any exercise as a means of ,
livelihood; who has never, directly or indirectly, received any bonus or payment
in lieu of lossSof time while playing as a
member of any club, or any money consideration'for any services rendered uS a
player, except his actual travelling and
hotel expenses."
It was also decided that, for all championship events, a watch examiner should
be appointed by the president, and all
watches used in such events must be certified to by said examiner. Henceforth,
any athletic record made on Sunday will
not stand!. The membership will be enlarged, asthe union will now be open to
all athletic associations, unions or leagues.
River Bank Protection at Revelstoke.
[Itcvcls.okc Muil, March Itli.J
The river bank protection  work is now
iu full swing, though the absence of the
wire ordered in the east has caused a temporary delay.   The new mattress is being
placed in a. substantial manner.   It is laid
on a framerof sawn  timbers 5xS in size,
which are grooved and bolted with three- -
quarter-inch bolts and on top the timbers
are SxlO with brush between packed close
for a depth of three feet.   The whole will
be solidly, marled down  with  wire and
ballasted with rock  wheu complete.    On
the portion between where work stopped
last year and the old smelter point, a distance of about 1300 feet,  it is estimated
there are about 3000 loads of brush packed,
and all is in readiness, in fact waiting, for
the wire to finish off with  timbers and
rock. .  Over   the , work   done "last year
the   new   mattress    will'   also    extend
to - tho    ■ point -   of      commencement
opposite       the     Methodist     parsonage,
but "   it     .will     not      be ,.'quite    . fO
thick   there  being   some two and a  half
feet through.   This new mattress will be
throughout- some 100   feet wide,   that is .
from side to side, and 75 feet of. that will
be in the the river.   The whole will  be
ballasted, some 3000 yards of rock.being  „
put on  it.   At the break on "Third street
the mattress may be made wider and improvements there   might reasonably   be
.expected   to   include   the-cribbing  and
restoring of the street to nearly its original width.   This month the average number of men  employed  is  believed  to   be
about- one hundred and ninety all told,
and  it is   expected. that  inside   of two
months it will  all be finished.   This protection  should give'confidence to property holders in the vicinity, greatly help in
restoring property values, and aid in encouragement of building-enterprise.     " -

Prisoner Jumped from Moving Train.
Albany, N.lr., March 0.—A prisoner in
charge of a deputy sheriff, who  boarded
the fast mail at Poughkeepsie, jumped
from the window and it is believed was
killed.   The train  was stopped  to allow
the officer to go back in search of the tnah,
but proceeded to this city without -awaiting his return.   A special from  Pough-   .
keepsie says that the prisoner was arrested in that city in the guise of a peddler.
The police believed him to be a crook who
was sentenced to six months in Albany
penitentiary.    A   special from  Hudson's
says that the body of a man, supposed to
be the prisoner, has been found floating iu
the river  in front of that city. 2

Extending the fire limits in one direction and contracting the limits in another
direction is on a line with raising the
license, fee on wholesale dealers and allowing insurance companies to do business
; without paying a license fee. The council
wants to extend the fire limits along both
sides of Baker street from Kootenay street
to Falls street and from 'Hall street to
Hendryx street; and it wants to contract
the limits in another direction. The present fire limits take in the block bounded
by Baker, Stanley, Victoria and Kootenay streets. The south half bf this block
is to be taken out of the limits. For what
reason? The chairman of the public
v-work's committee knows, but he also
knows enough to keep the reasons to himself. The present fire limits take in all the
business "portion of the town. There has
been no petition presented-to the couucil
praying for the limits to be extended.
If plans have been made for the erection
of large business blocks on Baker street
west of Kootenay street, then let the fire
limits be extended in that direction;' but
.why extend the limits east of Hall, where
no such buildings are likely to be'erected ?

[Silverton Silvertoniari, Jlnrch 2nd.]
The -lets of the present local legislature,
both vyhile in opposition aiid since securing power, have been discouraging in the
extrenie to the press of the province. British Columbia has been complimented and
has prided itself on the number and excellence of the newspapers published within
"its borders. Much of the present advancement of the province is due to its newspapers.   This admits of no contradiction.
It would seem, therefore, that the government of the province would endeavor, in
a legitimate way, to encourage the newspapers.   On the other hand, what is their
record of the last two sessions at Victoria?
In the last session in which the present
government held the opposition benches
we find them springing an amendment
to   the   Mineral    Act,     by    which    the
advertising  of  two   or more claims for
certificate of improvements, could be condensed into one notice.   Thus doing away
with one of the sources of revenue of the
newspapers in miuing districts, and which
amendment was never asked for by the
miners.   After securing power, they were
asked that some easy method of advertising out a defaulting co-owner should be
introduced.   This would -have benefited
the prospectors and incidentally helped
the newspapers. The mining committee,
however, in their report, which was acted
upon, gave the mining press another setback. Not con ten c with these measures,
towards the close of the session they cut
off another source of revenue from the
press, by an alteration iu the License Act.
Why should the present government have
any friends ih the ranks of the press?
They ignore the press, subscribe for no
papers, and rather than submit to their
criticisms, they ^eud out circulars from
the," provincial ^secretary's office,, asking
th^t no copies^be^mailed to any govern-,

Though the long-suffering and sneezing  and sniffling may not believe it, yet there  are places in this big wide world where  colds can't be caught simply because there  are no colds to catch. Nansen and his  men say that it is impossible to catch  cold in the Arctic region?, no matter how  severe the exposure may be. During the  three years they were in search of the  North Pole not one of them suffered with  a cold, but they all proceeded to have bad  colds just as soon as they returned to  civilization.  This interesting fact was related by Dr.  Egbert Guernsey, one of the most prominent.New York physicians. He says, in  a word, that colds area result of microbes,  similar to the grip germ, which attack the  body.wheu it is in a depressed conditiou.  The microbe that makes colds has thus  far eluded detection. It hasn't had its  photograph taken and putin the scientist's  rogues' gallery, as has been done with tlie  wicked germs of bubonic plague, yellow  fever, typhoid fever and the grip. But  Dr. Guernsey believes that the "cold"  microbe exists, because colds have been  found to be contagious.  This microbe theory of colds offers a  solution.of one of the��most curious inci-  .. deuts.of epidemics of colds ever, recorded.  On the rocky, lonely island  of ,St. Kikht,  lying  some forty miles beyond the. West  Hebrides, to the northwest of Scotland,  there are nigh upon a hundred inhabi-  V'tants,'who keep a few sheep, and. cows,  cultivate some forty acres.and collect the-  eggs; feathers and young of the numerous  . sea fowl. = Their., coasb is so precipitous  and their seas, so stormy-that for eight  .. months out of the twelve they, are, prac-  ��� jtically inaccessible... Formerly they were  . visited only, once a year ".by- a ship from  J- the   mainland.   Now-several   call, there  during the summer,  including excursion  _ steamers   from   Liverpool   aud Glasgow.  The curious.point is that whenever a ship  reaches the island allthe inhabitants, including the very infants at the breast, are  seized with a cold. V     H  This fact has beeu known for nearly  two .hundred years, and greatly interested. Dr. Johnson, when he and-Bos well  were making their famous 'tour of the  Hebrides. The probleui of this St. Kilda  cold long puzzled learned men, who seem  never to have suspected, the simple explanation of the mystery: One solution  suggested was that the steward always  brought whiskey with him, and that it  was the intemperance and jollity which  took place on the occasion which caused  the epidemic. Another explanation was  -that-a-ship -could-only reach���the-island  from the mainland when the wind was  from the northeasts "T'he wind, not the  strangiers. "caused the cold."  Winter Sport at St. Petersburg:  The cold Weather in western Russia  makes possible the various winter amusements that Oanadians associate with St.  . Petersburg���Sleigijing, skating,, ice^hilling  and the like; In thd Canadian imagination, howeye'i% these are son.ewhat  idealized, The sleigliiflg isT0n_y fai1' dtid  cannot be compared with that of a  Canadian city. It is a splendid sight to  see the teams of magnificent black Orloff  stallions dash up and-down the Neveski  Prospect, and along the quays late in the  afternoon when the beauty, wealth and  fashion of the empire are taking the drive  required by custom, seated in extremely  low sleighs, covered with furs, with an  enormously fat .coachman in the tiny box  in front and a tall footman balanciug on  a shelf behind. There is no law here  against fast driving���no one who can  drive fast does anything else. As soon  as a - snowstorm begins thousands  upon thousands of workmen are out  shovelling, sweeping and carting, until  there .is scarcely enough snow left to help  thejWuriners over the cobblestone pavement. It takes only a change of the wind  and a warm sea brPeze to turn it all into  slush and mud. Skating, also, is not  what is geuerally supposed. When the  dirty canals have frozen over, enterprising contractors clear spaces on the ice,  fence them in, build temporary shelters  and for a consideration allow people to  glide about the enclosure. The skating is  never very good, even after the rink has  been flooded, for this cannot be done  evenly. Two artificial ponds afford fair  skating, however. One of these, a great  gathering place for the English colony, is  in the Jussupoff garden, and the other,  where the aristocracy "cut the outer  edge" and make "figures of eight," is in  the Tauride garden, which once on a time  belonged to Potemkin, empress Catherine'-?   lover.

The  sleds are tiny contrivances of steel, the  runners of which must be sharp, smooth  and perfectly true. The top is a heavy  plush cushion several inches thick, and  they go like the wind. This sport is exciting and experts may sometimes be  seen standing erect as they plunge down  on the tiny sledges. '  BABIES PROM THE CLOUDS.  Capital, Paid Up  Reserve  $2,000,000  1,200,000  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D.  R. WILKIE, General Manager  The Arrival of Two Infants In the Basket of a  Runaway Balloon.  William Harvey and his sister, Miss  Mary, living about six miles east of Rich-  view, Illinois, tell a very interesting story  of themselves, which happened a number  of years ago. -  They were quite small,  the boy being  about five and his sister seven years old.  During the year 1858, while the State fair  was being held at Central  City, Illinois,  "an aeronaut of Chicago made an ascension  in a balloon at the State fair on Saturday  moruing.aud his balloon came down about  six miles east of here,  near the country  residence of William Harvey,. Sr.     The  owner of   the   balloon,   feeling   chilled,  went into the farmhouse  to warm,  and  tied his balloon to a rail fence near the  barn.      Little   Willie  and   Mary   were  .playing  near  the   barn.     They  noticed  the balloon tied to the fence, and, as they  had never seen a balloon, they walked up  to take a look at it.   Seeing that it would  go up  a few feet   and then   back again,  they thought it would be fun to get in the  basket and ride.   Mary helped her little  brother in and then she got in.   The balloon went upand'down a while; then all  at once it gave a lunge and pulled itself  loose from the fence.    Up and up it went,  with the   little Harvey  children in   the  basket.   The, mother was looking.put qf  a window,;and seeing the  balloon .going  up'told. the aeronaut thathis balloon had  got  away from, the  fence, and they, all  went  out to   see it;-   The  mother canie,  and, as she watched the balloon going up,  she noticed.some one in the.basket.     Not  once did she think it was her two little  children, nor could she believe it to be her  two children when.her husband told her  the children were nowhere to be found.-7  "   A search -was made all over the farm for.  the missing  ones',   without   result.,   The  father at'once drove to Rome, aVshort distance from his farm, and told  the story.  At once people followed after the balloon.  It   went .north   about   five   miles,   then  turned -west,7 going, over  Central City.  Everyone at the fair,.thinking- the aero,  uaufc was marking, his return, cheered and  cheered as the balloon, went oyer.' Soon a  telegram  was' received at Central- City,  stating that   the   balloon contained the  two little children of Mr. and Mrs. William'Harvey and to keep a lookout for it.  But it was growing late -aud  the balloon  was travelling fast..  Soon -it. was impossible to see it.   It   went  south,   passed  through Centralia, 111., then turned west  again and went over Mascoutah, III., and  then turned and went over East St. Louisi.  The little  boy  began  to get  cold and  commenced    to    cry.     Mary    tied    her  apron around Willie's head, and he went  -to-sleep���in���her���lap���About���7���o'clock-  tile next morning the balloon came down  in, a lai'ge tree on a farm southeast of  Mount Vernon, 111..   The owners of  the  farm, seeing the balloon in* their tfee, ��he  lady of the house cried to her husband:.  "Oh, John, Cod has sent lis some "children in a basket," .       '    .  John got the child out of the tree, took  them into the house aiid after thoy were  warm asked Mary who her parents were.  She told them and the farmer took them  home.

HOW   DR-3~"~tJS   IS    GUARDED.  All Possible Precautions Have Been Taken to  Secure His Safe" Keeping.  However much the emotions are stirred  over the Dreyfus affair, no anxiety need  be wasted over the prisoner himself.  He still lives,' his' personality is not  lost, and, whatever may happen,  his existence will not, from all appearances, be blotted out forever. In  consequence of certain fears' expressed  over the possibility of his escape, not  only has the ex-Captain's cabin been surrounded by a high board fence, inside of  which the prisoner takes his daily Walk,  but at night are taken the most rigid precautions known to military science. His  hut has been divided into two rooms, separated by an iron grating reaching from  floor to ceiling. In the inner room, provided with neither door nor window,  sleeps the unfortunate officer; in the other  room lies a guard, armed with a brace of  l-evolvers. At nightfall the door is bolted  upon them both from the outside, and a  second guard lies across the. doorway to  keep watch over the inner guard. Up to  tbe present time it. has been . considered  unnecessary to place a watch upon these  two by a'..third sentinel.   ,.  All possible precautions have been  taken to assure the safe-keeping of the  prisoner.   The government of France will  NELSON BRANCH  A general banking business transacted.

It has gone even  further: Dreyfus, being only mortal,  might some day or other fall in the sore  hattle of life and be mustered out by the  Lord of hosts. Then, what if the government be accused of having simulated his  death and of having buried some other  body, which in life had never borne the  name of Dreyfus? To forestall any.such  embarrassing consequences, the minister  for the colonies, a little over a year ago,  shipped to Devil's Island all the drugs and  apparatus necessary for the embalming of  the body of the ex-captain of artillery,  the whole lugubrious outfit enclosedin���  the coffin destined to bring back to  France, for the edification of political adversaries, the remains of the lonely prisoner and much-wronged man. No government could be more prudent; kindly-  foresight could hardly go farther.  QUEER   HAPPENINGS.

Captain Allan Lean, who was master of  the steamer Ainswortb. wheu the steamer  sank and nine men lost their lives, told  bis version of the disaster this afternoon  at the enquiry held by captain Gaudin of  the marine and fisheries department.  There was nothing new in the recital.  Captain Lean said that he had but three  minutes to do anything after he knew the  vessel was iu danger. The vessel was  making water rapidly, although both  syphons were working. He called the  members of the crew who were oil' watch,  and showed the passengers where the life  preservers were kept. He did uot  see the small life-boat launched, but  assisted iu the launching of the metallic  boat. He was in the boat when she was  launched, but the rush of the men into  the boat capsized it, and he was thrown  into the water. The life-boat was bailed  out and a trip made to the shore. It was  an hour before the return trip to the  steamer was made, but there was no  danger for the men on board, as the  steamer was floating on her side. Captain  Lane said that every effort was made the  following day to save whatever there was  on the steamer which could be got off.  Gas Company Wants a Charter.  At the special meeting of the city council this afternoon the application of  Harry V. Inskip for a franchise for a gas  company was considered. The applicant  stated that his chief desire was to ascertain upon what terms such a charter  could be secured. The members of the  council decided to offer Mr. Inskip the  same terms as were offered H. J. Evans a  year ago. He was further given one  month, within which to write to his principals in London, and ascertain whether  they were willing to accept the franchise  upon the terms offered. If they accept  they, .will then be required to deposit with  the Bank of British Columbia, either in  London or in this city, [aUlOO to be placed  to the credit of the city, and if at the end  of two months: the company does not  complete its agreement with the city and  go ahead with the work, the city will have  the right to reimburse itself out of the  trust funds for any expenditure incurred  on account of the charter.  TREATMENT    OP    LEAD   ORES.  The Trail Smelter Deducts Duty to the United  States on Lead  Contents of Ore.  The following is a communication written by Heatly & Co. at the Londou office  of the'Bosun mine, and published in the  British Columbia Mining Review, regarding the treatment of lead ores by the  Trail smelter, arid explains itself;  '���We have noticed references in your  issues at different times as to the desirability of the lead ores produced iu the  Kootenay being smelted in British Coir  umbia, with a view to saving the duty of  $'35 per ton on the lead contents of the ore  to be smelted in the United States.  Anything that is good for the country  we should be glad to see : aud we, too,  had thought that tlie idea was that ben-  fits were to arise from the creation of a  local smelting industry and from the advantage which the mining industry  would obtain by the saving of the above  heavy American duty. However, we  find, somewhat to our surprise, that  this later is not contemplated; at least  we have just received a letter from our  manager at the Bosun mine enclosing the  terms on which the Trail smelter will  treat our ores. They are as follows:  $20.n0 per ton for freight and treatment,  and li cents per lb. on 100 per cent of the  lead contents, or an amount of deduction  equivalent to the United States duty on  lead contained in ore."
