FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ABE CALLM  IN BALANCES  Hall Mines Company Issue a  Circular to Stockholders  DEFINING THE OPERATIONS  SMELTING   AND   MINING   HAVE  BEEN   SEPARATED.  Development    Work    Being   Pushed  Vigorously --- Conditions   and  ��� y :'���    Prospects   Encouraging.  until ten -o'eltsiss.  The Half Mining and Smelting  Company, Limited,' has issued notice to its shareholders calling up  the last shilling due upon the company's ��1 shares. The circular in  winch the call is made sets out that  the company is now doing a large  amount of busiusss, entailing considerable outlay, aud that- it was  thought advisable to make the call,  as tho use of this amount will effect an important saying iu interest charges. With the call 2>aid the  secretary of tho company states  that a balance of ��20,000 will .be  available. '     -       _  /Concerning tlio company's smelting operations the circular calls  attention to the fact that the  smelting and mining are now carried on as soparate businesses./At  the meeting in October last it was  suggested that the company's returns from the smelter would furnish the meau3 of meeting to a  large extent, if not altogether, the  cost of opening up the Silver King;  group.of mines in tho lower - levels.  This forecast was being, borne out,  and for the ^)ast two months the  -' surplus from the smelting business  materially assisted in meeting the  expenses at the ming.'  /The obstacles which, the company  had to overcome in the way of  profitable lead smelting were the  uncertainty of the supply from, the  mines iu the district, as well as the  insufficiency of fluxing and iron  ores, and the inadequacy of the  -roasting power of the calcining  plant in the possession of-the old  company. These obstacles, however, have beeu removed. Satisfactory contracts have been made  with the lead mines, as well as contracts for a sufficient supply of iron  ore for fluxing purposes; while in  order to bring up the roasting  power to the requirements of alarge  business, the^board^caused^a^new^  mechanical roaster and briquetting  plant to be erected at a cost of  ��5000. This new plant will  very materially reduce the cost of  smelting, so that shareholders will  readily understand that apart from  the mine���whicli is developing most  promisingly���the company is on the  threshold of a very favorable period  at the s!ueltei\|  Dealing with the development at  the mines the circular set out that  tho ore in tho levels above the  main tunnel, No. 5, having so far  as known to exist become exhausted,  and tho available machinery being  inadequate to the work of sinking  and hoisting, it became necessary to  provide additional machinery  capable of sinking 1000 feet. This  was installed at the mine at a cost  of about ��3000, and is now working  satisfactorily.  This development work is now  being pushed vigorously. In the  meantime, as the result of the  work done on the Oth and 7th  levels, the manager has located and  blocked out a body of ore, which on  measurement he estimates will  yield some 16,350 tons, assaying on  the average 10 ounces silver and 5  per cent copper. In reporting this  the manager considers his figures  well oh the safe side, both as regards quantity and value. This ore  body is the one known hitherto as  the south ore .body, and continues  in depth below the 7th level.  The main vein, from which the  bulk of the ore was obtained by the  old company,"has not yet been located with certainty on the 7th  level, but the latest information  from the manager leads the board  to expect that he is ou the point of  proving it at that level. The company does not propose to stope at  present, but to continue the work  of development and proving of the  ore bodies, until such time as reserves of payable ore have been located sufficient to keep a furnace  continually running on copper pre.  Arrangements for Funeral.  Indianapolis, March 14.���Acting  on the instructions of governor  Durbin, Charles E. Wilson, his private secretary, today sent messages  to the governors of every state and  territory informing them of the  arrangements for ex-president  Harrison's funeral.

BisiiMN, March 11.���The death of  Mr. Benjamin Harrison is generally  commented upon this evening by  the German press with the. exception of the semi-official organs, but  a high official of the foreign office  said today to a representative of  the Associated Press: "Mr. Harrison was highly esteemed here and  Jiis^deathi=is=keenly=regretted.=The  estimation in which he was held as  an able American statesman, emperor William voiced on Mr. Harrison's visit in 1S99, when the emperor paid him special honors."  Boers Making Northward.  Adelaide, Capo Colony, March  13.���Kritziuger's commando is  working northward and has eluded  three British columns. It passed  here on both sides of the town  without- attacking. Yesterday  evening a Boer patrol captured four  native scouts and shot three of  them. Krit/.inger's men have carried off all the horses in the Albany  district, for which, as they were  registered, Great Britain will have  to pay ��10,000. The raiders were  civil to the inhabitants of tlie district, although they commandered  horses and food. They did not indulge in wanton destruction of property and in many cases offered  cash for the food they obtained.  Ulunda Arrives.  St. Johns, Newfoundland, March  14.���The Furness Allan liner Ulunda,  captain Chambers, which left Liverpool February 23 for St. Johns, arrived here tonight after a frightful  passage, the Avorst in the experience  of all ou board.

French Strikers,  Marseilles, March 14.���There  were several slight conflicts today  between the strikers and the police  at the docks but nothing serious.  The teamsters and bakers have decided to make common cause with  the dockers and a settlement is not  likely tojbe reached soon.  BOARD OF TRADE AROUSED  WILL SEND TWO DELEGATES TO  OTTAWA.  And Endeavor to Obtain Government  Aid for the Establishment of  a Refinery.  The chief business tliat came before the meeting of, the Nelson  board of trade last evening was the  lead difficulty. The members placed  themselves on reeortl as being in  favor of the establishment of a refinery in Canada, and of the._ granting of a bounty of $5 per ton on  lead bullion. The special committee which was appointed -by the  council of the board to report on  the matter submitted a lengthy  resolution, which* was adopted as  presented. Considerable discussion  took place, but all were strongly in  favor of the move. The resolution  read:  Whereas, Lead mining in 'British  Columbia has grown into a most  important industry, giving employment to a large number of men at  good wages, supporting .the population of an extensive area in - the  Kootenay. districts, and adding  much to the general prosperity;  and, whereas, the increase and development of the industry are certain under favorable conditions,  which conditions mainly depend  on the miners being able to get  their ore smelted at a reasonable  charge for freight and treatment;  and, whereas, the demand for these  lead ores by smelters in the United  States has almost ceased, and the  capacity of the smelters now operating in British Columbia is totally  inadequate to treat the output of  these mines, some . of which have  already lessened their output and  others have closed down on account  of these difficulties; and, whereas, no  means of refining base bullion exists today in Canada, thereby necessitating the shipment to United  States refineries of the lead product  of Canadian smelters, and a much  higher rate for refining lead than  formerly is now boing demanded  by the American Smelting & Refining trust, and whereas there is no  tendency observable to increase the  smelting capacity in the district  now suffering; while the danger of  having to pay excessive rates for  refining continues; and, whereas,  the establishment of a lead refinery  readily accessible to the smelters  in the lead producing districts  would undoubtedly lead to the erection of more furnaces, and thus  afford the lead mining industry the  relief it now so urgently stands in  need of.  Therefore, be ifc resolved, Thatm  =theT5pihiSrrb=f"tliis~board"the estab  lishment of a lead refinery in an  accessible position in Canada is the  surest and best means of fostering  and encouraging the lead mining  industry of British Columbia, and  the board respectfully urges on the  Dominion government that to aid  this important purpose, and to  assist this new industry until fully  established, a bounty be granted  for five years of $5 per ton on pig  lead, the product from ores mined,  smelted and refined in Canada.  The board would also point out  that in British Columbia fuel is  cheap and of excellent quality; that  it is an undoubted advantage to  havo a refinery near the smelters,  and that pig lead refined in British  Columbia could compete in the  markets of the Orient, which would  not be the case with lead refined  further east. The board would also  suggest that if a bounty be granted  the government should retain the  power of interfering in case more  than fair and profitable refining  rates were charged. '  It was decided to have the resolution printed and a copy sent to  each cabinet minister of both the  Dominion and provincial parliaments through the local members,  and also a copy to each board of  trade of the Kootenays accompanied by a letter asking for its endorsement of the action. Mr. Robertson was of the opinion that the  printed forms of a resolution sent  to a government would have but  little effect, and he suggested that  a delegate be Sent to interview the  Dominion government. The matter was partially left with the board  council and arrangements will be  made to have two delegates go to  Ottawa. Other boards will also be  asked to send delegates, arranging  it so that all will reach there about  April 10th.  The question of asking the government to impose an import duty  on lumber and shingles, as suggested by the association of the lumber  merchants was brought up and  after a brief discussion the following resolution .was adopted:  Resolved,' That * this board urge  the government to impose a duty  on lumber and shingles entering  Canada from the United States  equal to that levied by the United  States on the same product when  entering the United States from  Canada, which at present is $2 per  1000 feet on lumber and 30 cents  per thousand oh shingles; to be lessened or abolished;when it is made  to appear to the governor-general-  in-council that such a course has.  been taken by- the government of  the United States.;  .... The committee appointed to report on the establishment of a department: of mines stated that it  had not come to a definite decision.  President Holt stated that this was  an important question aud should  be dealt with as soon as possible.  It was decided that the report of  the committee when prepared  should be dealt with by the council.  By resolution it was decided that  the board should procure the old  hall at the corner of Victoria and  Kootenay streets,-, lately occupied  by"the miners' union.  The following were elected members : John Cholditch & Co., represented by Messrs. Cholditch and  Hamilton; Nelson Saw and Planing  Mill, represented by Messrs. Hillyard  and Houston; A. Macdonald and  Co., represented by Messrs. Chapman and Nunn, and Bruce White.  Among those present were: G..  V. Holt, II. E. Croasdaile, W. Gillett, George Bell, T. Allan, J. Bannerman, J. T. C.

Harrishuru, March 14.���Charles  W. Ryan, cashier of the Halifax  National Bank, was shot tp death  by Henry Rowe and Weston Keiper of Lykens at noon today in au  attempt at a daring bank robbery.  The robbers were captured shortly  =after^tlfe^,iih^1Ind=bTough"t~to the  Harrisburg jail, together witli F.  Straly of Lykeus, who is suspected  of being an accomplice. Howe and  Keipler drove to Halifax from  Elizabethtown this morning, hitched  their team ou the outskirts of the  town and boldly proceeded to the  bank. Each had a revolver and  they demanded the attaches of the  bank to throw up their hands and  turn over the money. One of them  held in check Faustenburg, the  president; Lytler, the teller and  ex-president Dave Swartx,, who was  in tlie bank on private business.  The other covered cashier Ryan  and under the menace of the revolver the cashier collected the cash  in the drawers to the atnouut of  $2000 and placed ifc in a satchel the  robbers had brought with them.  Rowe, with the cash-stuifed  satchel in his hand, backed out toward the door and Keiper also  moved toward tlie entrance to the  bank. Just when it seemed that  the robbers would succeed in getting away, cashier Ryan leaped forward in an attempt to knock up  the revolver of the man with the  money. In the scuffle several shots  were fired and Ryan fell to the floor  shot through the groin by a bullet  from the postol of Rowe.  Mr. Faustenburg grabbed Rowe  and after a short scuttle threw him  to the floor. Keiper ran out of the  door. The noise of the shooting attracted J. F. Lytler, who has a store  near the bank building. Ho ran  out with his shotgun and pursued  Keiper for one block and shot him  in the back of the head, when the  robber surrendered.  The wounded cashier died after  being taken home.  PROVINCE  AND   DOMINION  OBJECTIONS TO PROPOSED SCHOOL  AMENDMENTS.  A Delegation   Wait   on   the Government and -Protest���General  News Notes.  Victoria, March 14.���A delegation, including mayors and some  aldermen of the coast cities, waited  upon the government today for the  purpose of laying before them objections to proposed amendments to  the School Act and the changes  effected by it upon the financial  side of civic affairs. ��� On account of  pressing demands upon the finances  of the province the government  could give the delegation no hope  that auy propositions which would  affect the financial aspect of the act  would be entertained by them. The  delegates, however, were given to  understand that they might entertain suggested changes upon the  line of curtailment of powers given  to trustees in the amendments.  In reply to representations of the  Associated Boards of Trade of  southern British Columbia, finance  minister Hon. J.'H. Turner said that  an official of the agricultural department would start out immediately to collect data for use of the  government in fixing railway rates.  This official wonld pass through the  farming districts, interview as  many of the farmers as possible,  and get their ideas" in regard to  proper freight rates on farm produce. He would also obtain, if  possible, estimates of the amount of  freight which might be expected  and all this data would be laid beforo the government with the object of assisting them in adjusting  rates so that British Columbia,  -farmers might compote-with the  farmers to the" sou'th^ of"-; the  boundary in supplying the mining  camps of British Columbia. Mr.  Turner intimated that the C. P. R.  had manifested the greatest readiness to assist in the matter.  Manager Troup of the C. P. R.  Company announces that the company will place the steamers Amur,  Islander, Danube and Tees on the  Skagway run and that they are  looking for two more steamers that  will be better than any now on the  route.

THE  HUDSON'S  BAY  STORES;  ��lje QErttmne*  It  will   be   interesting   to note  what reply the advocates of the  Crow's   Nest   Pass Coal Company  ' and the Jim Hill combination  will  make to the disclosures of William  Blakemore, that the application for  the Hill railway charter is the first  move in a game to shut off for  all  time auy competition in  the  supplying of fuel  to the smelters of  British Columbia.   This communis  cation from Mr. Blakemore appears  on the third page of this issue, and  can be read with profit by all who,  desire to fathom the purposes of  the East Kootenay combine which  at present presents so formidable  a front against the welfare  of the  mining  and  smelting  industry of  ~this^provihcer   MTr^Blakemore'tf  knowledge of the extent of? the coal  fields of East Kootenay is doubtless  the fruit of   patient   and diligent  search and exploration, whieh for  ��� practical purposes is  worth  much  more than the  geological ^generalities so freely quoted to confuse the  members of the  provincial legislature and the members of the house  of commons.    In tlie light of the  information   which   has   come   to  hand in the brief space that has intervened since  the project of the  East   Kootenay   combination   has  been launched, it must be patent to  anyone not influenced by corporate  bias, that the future welfare of this  province demands that a halt be  made   in tlie   chartering of East  Kootenay   railway   projects, until  . such time as a  royal commission  can enquire into this fuel situation,  and satisfy the people of this pro-  ' vince that their interests  will not  be jeopardized by compliance with:  what under ordinary circumstances  would be a very reasonable request.  British Columbia has too much at  stake to grant the railway charter  sought and  count the cost afterwards.   The last circular of The Hall  Mining and Smelting Company,  Limited, which has just been issued  ������to the companies shareholders,��� is  ���tlie most cheerful reading they  liave been furnished with since the  formation      of      the      company.  Although   the   circular    contains  notice of a call of the last shilling  left  unpaid  upon   the   company's  stock, it sets out very  clearly that  the company is now more than paying its way, and -that-the proceeds  of the call will be applied in part to  the payment of old liabilities, leaving a balance of ��20,000. /In  reciting the company's operations, since  the reorganization in June last? the  circular states that, in addition to  expenditures for new plant, ��10,550  have been applied upon the redemption of tbe ��25,440 debentures, and  a further sum of ��10,450 in liquidation of the old company's liabilities.  The smelting and mining branches  of the company's business are now  conducted as separate concerns, and  most encouraging returns are submitted  from  each.    Following the  re-organization   of the company a  venture was madenn the matter of  lead smelting, and the same bids  fair to become established upon a  satisfactory basis, and to become of  assistance to the company in the  opening up of its Toad mountain  property, instead of being a drag  upon the operations as formerly.  At the mine captain Gifford is  giv-  every evidence that he was worthy  of the confidence reposed in him by  the   company.     Development   has  been advanced- systematically and  the company now   announces that  an ore body has been blocked out,  which on   measurement will yield  16,350 tons of ore of an average  value of $30 to the ton,  or  worth  in all $490,500.    With the smelter  operating   satisfactorily,  and   the  mine developing   well,   the  shareholders now stand a chance of getting some return upon their investment.    They have been very patient, and deserve all that   is coming to thera.   The  report from -Victoria, that  the    Canadian-   Pacific   Railway  Company has expressed its willingness to build the Coast to Boundary  road without a provincial subsidy,  should clear the political atmosphere  at the Coast with respect to the  government's railway policy. What  the province "requires first is railway   facilities, and competition if  it can get.it.     Messrs. - Mackenzie  andMami have made the granting of  $4000 per mile a, condition precedent  to their- beginning work upon the  road, but' throughout   the   entire  negotiations there has been very  much uncertainty both as to whom  they  "represented in the negotiations, and as to the quality of competition ���*������ which      the     building  of    the     road    by   them   would  secure to the 'people of this province.    The general impression appears to be that James- J. Hill has  some understanding with the prime  movers in the Mackenzie and Mann  project and that-their object would  be to secure connections with the  ^railway  pfoje^tM^up^the^Kettlcr  river valley.     In   this 'case they  would doubtless ask for a subsidy  for the entire line, which, upon the  basis of the Subsidy Act repealed,  would mean a drainupon the provincial   treasury of   no less   than  $1,320,000;    the   bonused   mileage  from the Coast to Penticton aggregating 230 miles, and   that   from  Penticton to Boundary 100  miles.  If this  report as to the Canadian  Pacific company's intentions is verified, it will doubtless create a very  favorable impression in the legislature  for the Canadian road, and  should secure for it every consideration in its  efforts to retain the  trade of East Kootenay, which properly belongs to it.  The resolution which was passed  at last evening's meeting of the Nelson board of trade/dealing with the  stagnation which has been brought  about in the Slocan through the  hostility of the United States lead  and smelter trust, does not put the  case any too strongly. Nor is the  board amiss in its finding that the  only solution for ��� the present  unhappy condition of affairs lies in  the direction of the establishment  of a refinery in Canada,' by which  the lead mines of the Slocan can  reach the markets of the world independent of the United States  trust. The Nelson-board of trade,  however, is guilty of one very glaring     inconsistency.      While      it,  has     a     fight     on  with    the   United  and    smelter    trust  make a fight all along  its hands  States     lead  it should  the line.   If  it is sincere in its desire for a Canadian refinery, it should be willing  to do its share toward creating  conditions favorable to refiniug  in Canada. It should strive to preserve for Canadian smelters and refineries the natural advantages  which they should enjoy in view of  the proximity of the coking coal of  East Kootenay. The Nelson Board  of Trade has now two requests  before the federal government.  The one is that the government  make conditions more favorable for  home smelting and refining by  granting a substantial subsidy.  The other is that the government  make conditions more difficult for  home smelting and refining by eu-  abiing the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company and the Hill railway and  smelter trust to complete their corner upon the only available supply  of coal suitable for smelting purposes.

Ogdensburg, New York, March  14.���While heavily laden cars of  copper en route from Canada to  New York were being taken from  the transfer steamer Armstrong at  the New York Central slip today a  coupling broke as the last ear was  running on to the apron. Before it  could be blocked the car ran back  on the steamer, smashing the dead  woods and crashing through the  boat rail. The car broke in two,  and one half of it dropped into the  St. Lawrence with its contents,  valued at about $10,000. "  -Appointed Chevaliers.

Simply a Combination Between Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company and  United States Trusts,  ���-William Blakemore, who for  some,time was prominently identified with the management of the  Gt'ow's Nest Pass Coal Company,  and who is doubtless well informed  as to the known resources of the  company's collieries and the probable extent of the coal fields, has  contributed to the Montreal Witness an excellent article on the controversy now being carried on with  respect to the granting of the Hill  railway charter in  From his personal knowledge of the  ground Mr. Blakemore says he regards the present move as nothing  short of a combination between the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company  and the United States trusts, represented by HilI���to effect a complete  corner on the coal supply of East  ;Kootenayfand-he=gives=^efyT:ood  reasons for such belief.

The scheme,  is an admirable one from the standpoint of the coal company, and the  Great Northern, and the more so  because it is entirely independent  of the concession of 50,000 acres to  the government, because the latter  is to come out of the 250,000 acres  actually held by the coal company,  and if, as they claim, this 50,000  acres is not to be leased, sold or  worked except in default of their  ability to furnish the necessary, coal  required for consumption in Canada  at a price not exceeding $2 per ton,  it would only remain for them to  live up to their charter, and the  50,000 acres would be practically  locked up in perpetuity aud would  leave them and the Great Northern  Company in absolute control of the  supplies.  "This is undoubtedly the true inwardness of the situation aiid the  moral is easily drawn. It is that  whilst the application for the railway charter should be considered  entirely upon its merits as a transportation question and as affecting  the mining and smelting industries  of the province, the obvious inten-  tention of the move should lead the  government at once to make their  selection of the 00,000 acres to  which they are entitled, and ti see  that these areas are secured in exact accordance with the wording of  the. charter, which specifies that  they should be 'of equal value, as  coal lands, .with the residue of the  coal lauds.' It should also be made  clear, as indeed it is from the wording of the clause referred to, that  tho government is under no compulsion whatever to lock up these  areas and simply to keep them as a  card up their sleeves, but that they  ���have absolute freedom to deal with  them at any time as they may see  fit in the interests of the country,  aud 'are perfectly at liberty to  allow them tp be developed just as  and when they like."

They  have not been successful, and  among the best judges it is now  concluded that tlie termination of  the coal measures in: this direction  is well 'within Canadian territory.  But, whilst this is so it is now  pretty well understood that the  coal extends further than the  limits of the reserve of 250,000  acres granted to. the Crow's Nest  -Pass Coal Company.  " The conclusion is obvious and  is certainly no straining of the probabilities of the situation, namely  that the coal company, which was  among the first to determine this  fact, relying upon the same political  ���pull' which enabled it five years  ago to secure control of a property  wbieh.was then supposed to corner  all the available coal areas, are now  eeeking to place their newly found  tallies in possession of the areas  which lie outside their domain to  the exclusion of Canadians, who do  not enjoy the good fortune to be  identified with their interests.

One son was also born of this union.  He was educated at Harvard, while  his sisters attended Mills Seminary!  "iiTT/airfoFhia^ The young man,  after leaving college adopted the  queue and dressed as a Chinaman,  and in 1S92 he and his father went  to China.   They never returned.  The-story was that the father  divided his great fortune with his  wife and took his wife back to the  celestial empire to live like a mandarin. Like her sisters, lieutenant  Dougherty's bride is Caucasian in  speech and appearance. Humor  gives each of the girls a dowry of  half a million dollars. They speak  French, English, Portuguese and  Kanaka with equal fluency, are  accomplished musicians and altogether charming and cultured  women. , Seven of Wing Ah Fong's  daughters married Caucasians. Miss  Harriet became tho wife of captain  Whiting, of the United States navy;  Jessie is Mrs. Howard G. Morton;  another is the wife of judge A. W.  Humphrey, of Honolulu. One of  the sisters was widowed by the  sinking of the steamer Rio de  Janeiro in San Francisco bay. Her  husband was C. W. Henshall.  Lieutenant Dougherty was a Prohibition candidate for congress  from Illinois in 1896, running far  ahead of his ticket. He graduated  from the Southern Illinois University and was expelled by president  Draper for refusing to divulge the  names of his associates in a class  rush. He was in the battle of El  Caney and San Juan as a private,  winning distinction for bravery,  for whicli he was given a lieutenancy in the volunteer army.

Commissioner  Teetzel objected to the granting of  the license on the ground that there  was already one licensed place in  Erie, which he considered sufficient  for a placo' of 25 people. He contended that if there wore fewer hotels their accommodation would be  better. Commissioner Matheson,  however, declared for freedom of  trade in.booze, and said.if the peo  pie of Erie wanted another licensed  place they should have it. The  commissioners then adjourned to  secure the views of commissioner  Gilker, and break the deadlock.  They resumed their session a few  minutes later, when commissioner  Gilker gave his vote for -fewer and  better hotels, and tlie application  was-forthwith refused. The .finding of tlie commission is generally  approved.     . ��� ��� >  MURALO  MURALO  As housecleaning will soon be the order of the day we would  invite your attention to our stock of PAINTS and VARNISHES.
