Activity on the Silver Hill Group-  Turning Out Concentrates at the  Highland at Ainsworth.  It is rumored and in fact the information comes from a reliable  source that a'lead refinery ia to be  built at Crawford Bay during the  coming season.- -The parties who  are interested in this latest scheme  of the mining industry of British"  Columbia are now in the east and  it is said that they are discussing  the proposition with prominent  eastern .capitalists. Taking into  consideration the fact that a smelter  is to be erected there and the late  difficulties that has arisen between  the United States refining com  panies and the companies control  ing .the silver-lead producing miu$��  of this country a^ considerable  amount of color is given to the  rumor. *���  Since the American companies  have refused to make any further  contract .with   the   companies   of  . this country the result has been to  a certain* degree a serious one for'  the mining industry here.    In some  cases mines have had-to be closed  down entirely,'and in many.- other  cases the ^working force*1 hadJ"to be"  greatly reduced, 'as/the' home smelters   would-only accept   a Ismail/  quantity, of the ore that contains a'  'large   percentage * of--lead. "  "The-  rates of .treatment of this 'quality,  of-ore havejbeen^ advanced by the  smelter companies,Yiind this greatly  " reduces "the --profits T of ;the/irunirig  companies,���' and ��� * now    many   of-  "theinlV ave'-hardly able' toyobtain;  from'their ores the operating expenses, y. - , '������ * ~���, -  " Crawford Bay'is probably��� one of  the most suitable locations in all of  the eastern portion of the 'province  for "such on-institution.'. Of late a  lime stone quarry containing an in-  exhaustable quantity' of that material has' been located near the bay.  It is said that the stone is superior  for fluxing purposes to any that has  yet been discovered in British Columbia. The-wateY power is excellent and there is nothing.lacking to  make the 'place . a most desirable  one. It is also a central point of a  vast mining region The properties of the London Consolidated, X  Bay, .Commonwealth and other  companies are situated within a  short distance. Tlie showings that  these   mines   have .already   made  A Farewell Reception.  Miss Ida Johnston, who has been  in the city for the past year and  who is leaving for her home in  Manitoba in a few days,- was tendered a farewell reception at the  opera house last evening. The  event took the form of a ball given  by her friends and members of the  Terpsichorean Club, of which she  waa one of the leading ^members.  Nearly 150 invited guests* were  present and a pleasant .time was  spent. Nothing had been left undone by the committee on arrangements and the* affair -proved  a success. Miss Johnston was presented'with a handsome gold watch  chain, which was- accompanied. by  ah appropriate address containing  words of regret at the losing of a  close friend. The- chain was presented, by Mrs. H. Stevens and the  address was read by T. J. McCam-  mou,* - after" which Miss Johnston  made a short reply in touching  words. The music was furnished  by Milward's "orchestra, consisting  ,of four pieces,' and the hall was  beautifully decorated. ��� The" committee consisted of 'Mrs. Sharpe,  Mrs. H. Stevens, Miss McMillan, Miss  Maltby, 0_ G. Simpson, W. O.  i-isStaXens, T. J. McCammon, *D. Ruth-  Nicholl and Miss Kate  10RD ROBERTS' TELEGRAMS  AN   OFFICIAL HISTORY   OF THE  BOER WAR.

The large St. Marys district, which has many -silver-lead  producing properties, is reached by  a good trail which leads from Crawford Bay. The ores of the Slocan,  where the present trouble ia probably felt more than any other  place, could be shipped at a comparatively small cost.  Activity on the Silver Hill.  During the past week development on the Silver Hill group on  Crawford Bay, oporated by the  London Consolidated Mining Com- >  pany, has been carried on with considerable activity. The working  force has been increased and a  larger amount of ore than usual  has been taken out. During the  week over 200 tons have been delivered at the landing at the bay  by McVeigh Brothers. The company has a contract by which they  are required to ship at least 3000,  tons during the winter months, and!  this probably accounts for the present activity. The steamer Kokanee  will go to the bay tomorrow and  bring down ahout 175 tons of the  ore. It is said that the company  intends making large shipments  from now on.   Shipping Concentrates.  The concentrator at the Highland  mine at Ainsworth has been steadily operating since it was completed, and is producing a large  amount of concentrates. A barge  will be sent to the property today  or tomorrow to bring to the smelter the large product that has been  turned out this week. Every department of the work at the property is progressing most satisfactorily. No new strikes have been  made, but the ore bodies prove as  rich, aa ever.  War."  .   Rev. R.

They fill 157 quarter  pages and make up the official history of the war, although without  throwing, new light upon* several  interesting disputed _ subjects^ such  as the Sannas post affair.  Hundreds of officers, non-com-  missioned- officers .and men, are  favorably mentioned, including lord  Kitchener, who is referred to in  .warm terms. Sir Redvers Buller  comes in for criticism. The first  "dispatch undertakes to "give a;con-  cise account of the "state of affairs  of the country in South Africa on.  my arrival, January 10th." _It describes the forces'as much scattered..  He says: "I decided" to leave general- Buller " with; a 'free hand Jn  Natal, but otherwise tb' remain on  the defensive untiK reinforcements  arrived, -and" until, the transport^  ���had been organized."- He found no;  transport'"^ corps existing. 13$*?.  colonial forces had not ;been. sufn-!  ciently vised. Cape-."Colony was  -restless. - ��� , ; -y ."-<���"  ' /Writing from JacpbVdale," February^ 6, lord Roberts says:-"General^  Buller, February 6, wired "that_ he  had pierced the, enemy's lines, but  that" to'crbss the Ladysmith^plain  would cost from" 20,000'to"'30^000  men.-s I,wired that he must relieve  Ladysmith," even at that cost.l Bui-"  ler telegraphed,:February 9 that he  was'not^stfori'g^.ehough -to"*-relieve��  Tug Will Soon* Be Commissioned.  _ The launching of the new"tug of  the lqcalC. P.-R. fleet, which has  been under construction at the shipyards for the past few months and  which is now completed and furnished, will take.palce at 2 o'clock  this afternoon J. M._Bulger,_who.  has been foreman over the work of  construction, will act as launcher  and'captain Gore will conduct the  ceremonies, which will be the same  as are usually held on such occasions.'. The boat is now resting on  the ways, held there by wedges and  ropes.. The wedges will flrst be  knocked out. Two men will stand  with broad-axes and when captain  Gore gives the signal the ropes will  be cut and a few - minutes later  the new tug will float for the first  time on the peaceful waters of  Kootenay lake. While she is still  struggling to gain her equilibrium  it will be christened the "Valhalla,"  the name by which it will be known  in the future. Arrangements are  being made for one of the wives of  the local officers to conduct this  part of.the ceremonies. It is probable that a bottle of champagne,  will be broken over its bow. The  public -are invited to attend these  ceremonies, which is an unusual  event in the history of Nelson. The  local management of the C. P. R.  are proud of this new addition to  its fleet, which it is said will be the  fastest and strongest tug east of  the coast and west of the great  lakes. This evening Mr. Bulger  leaves for the coast, where he will  launch the steamer Dawson, which  was built over two years ago and  was never moved from the  ways. The boat was built to take  the run from Vancouver to Stikeen  river.           Mining Records.  The following mining transactions were recorded yesterday:  Transfers���From H. E. Croasdaile  to G. W. B. Heathcote, entire interest in Safeguard and Canadian Bell  No. 2 on Keno creek, for a nominal  consideration. Certificates of work���  On Westward Ho. to F. G. Hamblin.  Ladysmith without1 reinforcements,  and regarded the operation in which  he was ..engaged as impracticable,  '-.'replied that my instructions must  hold." " In the .course of a sketch  of the capture of 'general Cronje,  .the occupation of Bloemfontein and  the long wait there, he wrote: "The  enemy'knew exactly how we were  situated and had accurate information as to the condition of our supplies, transports, artillery and cavalry horses, and ' they regained  courage." " " ������'-*.''  . The .marches to , Johannesburg  and Pretoria were uneventful as described by lord Roberts, his chief  concern being ' to -provision���,the  army.- "We were practically living  from hand to mouth," he wrote and  at times had not even"bne day's rations to the good;������ ���������^���  - He finds that no specific blame  can be attached to colonel Broad-  wood in the Sannas post" affair as  "the disaster was mainly due to the  failure of the patrol at Boesman  kopje to warn their comrades that  an ambush was prepared." The officer who was placed in command of  the patrol is not mentioned.  Writing from Johannesburg,  November 15th, he said: "With  the occupation of Kamatipoort and  the dispersal of Louis Botha's army  the organized resistance of the two  republics may be said to have  ceased, but there still remains much  tor the army in South Africa to do  to meet conditions of guerrilla warfare with forces broken up into  small columns and operating over  an area larger than France, Germany and Austria combined."  Incorporated with the dispatches  are reports from subordinate commanders, including the narrative of  general Baden-Powell, who says the  newspaper correspondents gave him  much trouble, "as the enemy received a great deal of information  as to our circumstances in Mafeking  from the newspapers."  Sir George White gives an  account of the siege of Ladysmith  and of the struggle of the population and the garrison against  starvation and enteric fever.  To Visit Australia.  Toronto, February 8.���The Globe  this morning publishes, a London  cable special saying that after all  Australia will not be disappointed.  Accompanied by the duchess, the*  duke of Cornwall and York will  leave England about the end of  March in time to reach Australia  early in May. Their royal highnesses  will make the voyage in the Ohelia,  which  will' be converted for the  occasion into a royal4 yacht, and  escorted by a couple of cruisers.,  The king is evidently determined  to'' walk in the footsteps of his  illustrious mother and to show the  people of the colonies that his mes-.  sage to them 'on ascending the  throne was written in all sincerity.  His majesty is aware how eminently  desirable it. is for the 'good of the  state that the heir;-to the throne  should become personally acquainted  with .the Australian people. The  royal decision not' tp-abandon the  voyage paves the way for imperial  federation.'

It  seems that they were ordered ��� to  haul a cart until the mules arrived  as the Boers were breaking their  laager in the expectation of a British attack in the morning. Commandant Froneman came up and  asked them why they had not in-  spanned. Norgendael replied that  they had been ordered.to wait for  mules, whereupon the Boer commandant immediately jamboked  Norgendael on the head and face  and said he felt inclined to shoot  liim. General Dewet coining up, at  that moment said, "Why don't you  shoot him?" At this Froneman  fired at the envoy, who died of the  wound. Mueller and another envoy were also jamboked.  Great Britain Will Not Comply. /  London, February 8.���Itis learned  by a representative of the Associated Press that a reply will be  shortly sent to the United States  on the Nicaragua canal-project. It  will not comply with the senate's  demands. Neither will it be in the  nature of a flat refusal, though for  /purposes of immediate construction  it will be tatamount to such a refusal.

THE TRIBUNE:  ��Jie Q&UtittfeV  ' The " promoters of ��� the'., Kaslo  smelter have", decided to ask the  ratepayers of that'city for a ^bonus'  oC $50,000 and for exemption from  taxation"for a given period.  The profits of the Northwest  Mining Syndicate through - the  floatation of the Bosun Mines and  ' the Condor Mines is stated "by the  syndicate at - ��28,114, represented  by shares-in the two mines.  If the council bf the Nelson board  of trade has not already filled the  agenda paper for the next meeting  of the board, it might with advan-  "tage suggest some furtherconsider-  ation of the postal, service throughout the southern portion   of the  provinct-J.   From time to time little  improvements have resulted through  the representations of the board to  the authoiities at Ottawa, but they  have all been secured after more or  less delay.   It is now competent for  the board to take up the question  of the creation   of   a new  postal  division,  with   an inspector   and  staff, whose duties it would be to  give their personal attention to the  mail service of tho interior.    A district composed of South East Kootenay, the Slocan', Nelson and Ross-  land-Boundary ridings is of sufficient importance, both in extent and  the volume of its commerce, to demand from the Ottawa authorities  due -recognition,- and the time is  opportune for taking the matter up.  The convenience which would result  from the creation of such a district  i  is obvious, and" if the matter is  properly represented there is every  .reason to believe that' the division  could be created and the staff installed upon the completion of the  new post office in this city.  The new life which is transforming Northern Ontario from- a wilderness' to an industrial center is  the logical result of a policy which'  seeks to preserve to that province  the maximum benefit from the de-^  velopment of.,its natural weialth.  What would be said throughout'  Western Ontario today were a  schema submitted which had for Its j  ultimai;e'"'objecc the 'draining of' its  >aw*mat_rials^rom the"1 province to"  manufacturing points in the.United  States? ,;Whatr prompted' the government of-Ontario' to place "export*  duties upon the raw product of its  forests^arid*'of   its' mines? * And  when'"it*'was done what'attention  was paid' to the protests of   the  United States manufacturers who  sought to secure the" repeal of legislation which' encouraged manufactures in Canada?" British Columbia  istbday in much the same position  in'this respect Wthat occupied by  Ontario a year ago.' Under the cover  of" a cry for free trade 'in railways,  and for no restrictions upon indus-  r_ti,ial_Ydevelopment;ian_attemptl_is_  being made to undermine the smelting industry of the province, and  ultimately to make the great mining districts of  Southern - British  Columbia "tributary   to   the "Hill  poorJ of   United   States  railways  and    the    United     States    lead  and smelter trust.   The men who  are engaged'in business throughout  the cities- and* towns of Southern  British   Columbia have a greater  objective for their province than  that it should act as a feeder for  Northport in the state of Washington', or any other smelting point in  the United States which  it may  suit the purpose of  managers of  United   States   railways to   draw  British   Columbia   ore   to.     They  look to see the present infant smelting   industry   of    their    province  grow, to see the* present number of  smelters multiply, to see the smelters followed by refineries, and to  see the refineries in turn give birth  to industrial concerns for the consumption   of   the   output   of   the  refineries.       They   recognize   also  that in the accomplishment of such  development they must look rather  to Canadian railway interests than  to   the   railway  interests   of   the  United States.   Railway companies  are  much the same all over the  world.   They are out for business.  The United States railway interests led; by "Jim " Hill would like  tb'-force ah'-ehtrainee into Southeast  '-tobtenajr* in'ordSr that* they might  feed their business in the United  States by drawing upon the cool  NELSON B. c8��praDAY, FEBRUARY 9  j Ty_. &. .. -; "*y..,;-. ������ .  ."*'���.."���        =====  1901  .-*!&&���..  ahdj orev reserves of i"thi_ v"pi*bvi*fice.  The' Canadian* Pacific Rdilway-Coni-  ipany "from rthe sa:me-? standpoint  of   dollars   and   cents   is   seeking  to   shut   out   its   American- rival1  in order that ;it niay secure the tonnage bf coal and ore, and' by-'-'draw--  ing it to" some Canadian smelting  point secure not only the business  of the original tonnage but also the  tonnage on the smelted and refined  product.   In  such a contest it is  not difficult for the people of   British Columbia to  determine   which  way their interests lie.   It is merely  a question whether it   is   to   their  advantage   to   build    up    smelter  points like Northport in the'United  States or smelter points at Nelson,  at Trail, at Grand Forks, at Greenwood, at   Boundary  Falls,'   or   at  other points in the province  which"  are favorably situated foi" the   re-"  duction of British 'Columbia ores'.  -They may have no particular'love  for the Canadian" Pacific" railway,  but they certainly have no - objection" to taking every advantage"' in  furthering" that company's interests"  when they are identical with'their  own; and their interests clearly lie ���  in building up Canadian  smelters'  and   Canadian   industries   and   in  making   their   advancement   their  first concern.  I congratulate you on the great expansion of  the mineral industry. The manufacture) of pig  iron in the province ia now firmly established,  and ia materially aided by the discovery of large  bodies of conveniently situated hematite ore in  theMiohipocoten region. The ma-king of the first -  open hearth stcol in the'"province, and" tlie' estab-  lishmenfon the upper lakes of the first* line of  steamers to cany tlie ore from our own mines to  the;8inelterfl of our own province, are events  significant of substantial progress. Nickel and  coppcr'niining are" more 'active than" at any pre-"  vlons time," and It is gratifying to know that additional works for the treatmentof thdie ores are  being erected in different parts of the province.  The above paragraph'appears in  the speech f rota the' throne ��� which*"'  was read on Wednesday" upon * the  occasion   of.   the opening   of-^ the  'Ontario legislature." It has  reference to-tlie greatest'1-industrial1 revival that Candda has experienced  since Confederation, and one which  is   destined  to make Ontario the"  greatest-iron'and steel "manufacturing center in the'world.-'   This re-'  - vival" did'" not   force itself ' upon'  Ontario.. It was soiightfafter~b*y its'  people*-  and- ��� their    .legislators.  -They,   bent    all    their��"energies,  not-   only ' to     -he a   mining ���   of  the" mineral wealth of the' province,-  but to its-home smelting and refining and   manufacture, and the  paragraph * quoted   sets   out  how-  fully  they'have   succeeded.    By  pursuing the same course' British-  Columbia can accomplish' the same  results,-but they will not be accomplished by bonusing United' States  railways to carry the raw materials  out of the province for reduction,'  refining and   manufacture   iri the  United States. ���  KOOTENAY....
