C, THURSDAY, JUNE 27,  1901  FIVE CENTS  NELSON MINES AND MINING  LEAD TRUST AFRAID OF THE ST.  EUGENE.  Report That a Deal Is On for the Purchase of East Kootenay's  Eig Lead Producer.   .  It is currently reported that the American smelting and refining trust is mixed  up in the anticipated shut-down of the  St. Eugene mine at Moyie. People who  are in a position to know say that the  heavy output of the big Moy,ie mine has  seriously upset the plans of the trust  of controlling tho lead market. Some  time ago it is said the St. Eugene company was approached by the trust and  ofi'ered a handsome premium upon their  probable operations if the ���''company  would undertake "to shut the proporty  down for a year. This offer, it is said,  was turned clown by the company and  operations were in consequence resumed.  It is now said that having failed to  shut off the St. Eugene's output in this  way the trust has now opened up negotiations with the St. Eugene company  with a view to absolute purchase of the  properly: Tho.'St. Eugene is conceded  to be second, if indeed it is not the first,  lead producer in point of size oir the  American continent, and its daily output of 100 tons of high grade concentrates forms a very respectable proportion of the entire lead output of British Columbia, which at .present the  smelter and lead trust is so anxious to  prevent finding an outlet to -the markets. The- mere suggestion that the  lead'-mining industry of this province  is being manipulated to suit the purposes of an alien trust is in itself sufficient justification for the action of the  federal government in providing a bonus  upon lead refined in Canada, and subsequent events have gone to support the  contention that it is only by this means  that any lasting relief can be extendorl  to the lead mining industry of the Slocan and other lead districts of the prov-  in��v.    T. G." Procter has" returned from the  ' Alice mine in the Goat River mining  division--which he has undor development." He reports the proporty as 'im-  --pr o V i n g-^rcall F^a"sT��BltI*l*55"ti'e Wl? ���'. opene'd*  up. By surface work the ledge has-been  proven for a distance-of 1500 feet, and  ���' now at a "depth of 250 feet it has widened out to about five feet, through  all of which as it has been opened up  has been found a' strong body of high  grade galena. In speaking of his program for the.current season Mr. Procter  said he contemplated putting in a tram-'  way from the property to tho railway,  which would require a line about a  mile in lenath. As to what course  would be followed with respect to the  marketing cf the Alice ore Mr. Procter  said it would all depend upon the rates  offered by the local smelters. The operation of a refinery anywhere in the province would simplify matters very much  for the Alice, as its ore was very nearly  self-fluxing, and, from its proximity tc  the railways, he considered that a system of fire concentration would be found  to be preferable to that of water. Mr.  Procter has gone very carefully into  this matter and has ascertained that a  small lead stack such as he would re-  -quire-could-be-placed-upon- the-gi'ound-  at an outlay of less- than $7000, at"  against at least $15,000 for a water concentrating plant. He purposes, however,  to give the customs smelters a cli'ancc  to figure on the ore and if anything  like advatageous terms can be secured  it will be shipped to them irr its crude  form. Mr. Procter is of the opinion  that the operation of a refinery in Kootenay will result in the erection of several small lead stacks on properties  which aro favorably situated with respect to transportation facilities, and  the necessary requisites in the way oi  fluxes. He has had the plans prepared  and an estimate made on the cost of the  stack which he has in view, and says  it is one which could be operated by a  crew of four men. This treatment of  ore, however, .would not bo possible  without a Canadian refinery operated  independently of the .trust, as there  would be no assurance that the trust  refineries would receive the bullion frorr  any but-smelters in harmony with thr  trust. The Alice mine will close dowrl  for the next few days in order to give  the men a chance to take in the Dominion Day celebration in this city.  7 C. P. Hill is now making good progress in the work of. developing the bif  iron ledge above Kitchener, and he hat  two diamond drills at work with a viev.  to ascertaining the extent.of the big iror  deposit.. There.are thousands of ton;  of. iron ore scattered all over .the surface of the ground, and all .that is necessary to secure for Kitchener one of the  greatest iron and steel industries of the  . Dominion is the proving of the eleposi*  at depth.  <  Fresh litigation is in sight" over tin-  rather celebrated Sunset property in the  Whitewater basin in the Slocan. Foi  the development of this property a loca"  company was organized some years ago  but when it-came to a show-down il  was found that the company did noi  own the Sunset property and the local  shareholders entered suit against the  promoters of the local company for the  recovery of their monoy. An arrangement was ultimately arrived at, how-  eve:*, whereby J. M. Dunn of Minneapolis, the owner of one-half of the  property, undertook to give the local  shareholders some protection, and- ultimately a bond on the property Was  given to J; C. Drewry of Rossland. One  of the terms of this bond called for the.  payment of 50 per cent of the net proceeds of the ore "shipments', from which  sum it was proposed to indemnify the  local shareholders in the original Sunset company. The bond,on the property, however, was recently thrown up,  and a dispute has now arisen between  Drewry and the Dunn interest as to  the nercentage of.the net"ore shipments  payable under' the bond. The other half  of the property was held by J. Fred  Ritchie and others, and under Drewry's  arrangement with this interest the percentage of payment of net proceeds was  set out as 25 por cent. The threatened  litigation is over this clause in tho bond  on the Dunn interest.  DENSE FOG AND ROCKY REEF  ���STEAMSHIP LUSITANIA  A   COMPLETE   WREOK.

The Captain of an Ocean Liner  Nowadays the captain is the host of  the ship. He is no longer the gruff,  rough soa-dog in a pea-acket of years  gone by. lie must observe some of the  social amenities. He must talk to the  passengers novv and then, when the  weather is fine. He must take his seat  at table when he may. Ho must be a  kind of diplomat also, and possess wit  and tact and a patience sublime. He  must see that no. jealousies develop  among the passengers. I have been told  of the very obliging captain who, to  piease the lady who asked to be shown  the equator while the ship was in southern seas, pasted a hair across the large  end of a spyglass and told the lady to  look. And the lady, through the glass,  declared she'could sec the equator "as  plainly as A B- C." One other polite  captain I have heard of���one who directed an. officer .onvthe bridge to "do  as the lady wishes," when the lady requested that the captain steer the ship  over to the horizon so 'she could see  what tho horizon was like.  An Attempt to Float the Ingalls.  NEW YORK, June 26.���An attempt  to float tne transport Ingalls, which  sank in a drydock in the Erie basin  June 14, into a stronger drydock has  resulted in the vessel dropping an additional four feet and now being deeper  in the water than ever. Those in charge  of the work say it was an accident almost impossible to avoid. Nobody was  injured in this second accident. Divers  say that the hull of the vessel is not  injured. Another effort will .be made  today to raise the ship. Blocks on  which the keel of the ship rested fell  away, which caused the mishap. Carpenter Stewart, foreman at the yard,  lost his Avatch on the vessel.  ST. JOHNS, June 26.���The steamer  Lusitania with 500 passengers on board  was ��� wrecked last night off cape ��� Ballard. The steamer belongs to the Orient  Steam Navigation Company and was  bound from Liverpool for Montreal in  charge, of captain McNay. The Lusitania was bound round cape Race for Montreal with a large cargo and -a shipload -  of passengers. She mistook her course  in a dense fog and went ashore near  Renews, 20 miles north of cape Race,  before daybreak. The ship is over a  reef and hangs against a cliff. The passengers, mostly immigrants, were panic-  stricken. They stampeded and fought  for the boats, but were overcome by the  officers and "crew, who secured control  after a prolonged struggle with -the  rougher element among the passengers,  who used knives. The women and children were landed first and'the men followed. The crew stood by the ship. A"  heavy- sea -was running when these reports were received, and -while the Lusitania was ._ holding her own it -was  thought likely she would prove a total  .-wreck. The disaster occurred miles  from the nearest telegraph office and the  details obtainable at this time are meager. A representative of the Associated  Press has started for the scene. Several steamers are fitting out here and  will leave shortly for the scene of the-  wreck. It is expected that the large  cargo of the. Lusitania will be saved.  As this "dispatch is being sent a report  has reached here that a boatload of people from the Lusitania was upset,and  that 20 persons were drowned. The correspondent bf the Associated Press here  is unable to guarantee the-accuracy of  this report "at present.  The passengers of the Lusitania had  a terrible experience. The first knowledge which they had of the disaster was  when, owing to the ship rasping over the -  rocks, 'they were" all hurled from' their  beds by the shock. Many of them were  =brirised-and -theyuall* hurried 'dn'deck'in1  their night, clothes. ' A scene of great  excitement ensued. Five hundred-people were clamoring to escape, while the  erew tried to pacify them and launch  the boats. .The male passengers in their  attempt to seize the boats trampled the  women under foot and, as already cabled, fought the crew with their knives.  Some of the more clear-headed of the  passengers assisted the crew in the efforts to get out the boats. One boat, it  11.0W appears, was upset and its occupants were immersed. It is still supposed that some of these were drowned,  but the point has not yet been definitely established. It is certain, however, that one boat, having on board 20  people, has not yet been reported. " She  is supposed to be adrift in the, fog and  which reached here that 200 persons  this may have given rise to the report  were drowned by the upsetting of a  bo.��-t.  The women and children rescued were  almost naked. Drenched with spray they  were pulled up the cliffs by the coast  people.   Some of the boats were demol-  Confessed to a Murder.  , VINITI, I.T., June 26.���George Williams, lying on his death bed, confessed  to ..being an accomplice in the murder  last September at Prior Creek of T. E.  Smith and Green Smith of Sweden.- In  ���his statement Williams also implicated  William Nichols of Vinita, William G.  Smith and Leon Smith of Prior Creek,  and John Smith, the latter now serving  a term in the Kansas, state penitentiary,  for cattle stealing. !,Nichols and William G. Smith and Leon Smith' were arrested today. The double murder was  committed for robbery and the officials  had given up hope of^ finding the murderers. -  v Coroner Indicted,  CHICAGO, June 26.-'--ihe grand jury  today indicted former1-deputy coroner  John C. .Wreckler for malfeasance in  office, the specific charges being that he  conducted a false 'inquest on the body  of Miss Marie Defenbach. Miss Defen-'  bach was the young \yoman about whom  revolved the insurance conspiracy case,  prosecution of which" .recently resulted  in Dr. A. Munger and F. Layland being sentenced to gthe penitentiary.  Wreckler has not been located.  FIRST PRIEST FOR NOME  FATHER JACQUET WILL BE THE  PIONEER.  Has Been Among the Western Indians  for Twenty Years, and  . Still Enthusiastic.  A report is in circulation that  the Kaslo & Slocan railway,  which -is operated.X'as part of the  Great Northern J system, absolutely refuses to haul silver-lead  ore from mines in ,the Slocan to  American smelters that are operated independent" of the Smelter  Trust.

This morning the unhappy passengers, after shivering for  hours on the hilltop, tramped over  weary miles in their endeavor to reach  the houses of the fishermen, which they  eventually succeeded . in doing, where  they are now sheltered. Previorrs to  reaching the cliffs the passengers passed  two hours of terrible anxiety on the  wreck. Continued fears aro expressed  that tho Lusitania may prove a total  loss, as a furious rainstorm and heavy  sea raged all" night.- ''The last reports  received here said the steamer was  breaking up, that her foreholds were full  of water and that her cargo was being  salvaged. There is hope of saving the  effects of passengers, as, where..possible, they were stowed above decks. Six  steamers are now on their way'from  here to the scene of th wreck."';.It is  expected that the passengers will, be  brought here tonight.  ST. JOHNS. Nfld., June 26.--Dater reports here show that the wreck of the  Lusitania did not sustain any loss of  life. The passengers escaped, although  several of them were injured. The boat  load of passengers reported as missing  has landed safely." The ship has been  badly forced on the rocks, has listed  to one side and is half full of water.  She had on board 300 passengers, not  500 as at first reported.  MONTREAL, June 26.���Captain McNay of the steamship Lusitania, ashore  at Seal Cove. Nfld., this afternoon telegraphed the Elder-Dempster Company  here that passengers were all safely  landed. The ship's hold is full of water, reaching the aft port. No hope of  saving her.

JOHNS, Nfld., June 26.���The  stea.mer Glencoe arrived here at midnight bringing 6 first, 15 second and 436  steerage passengers and 93 of the crew  of the Lusitania. Captain McNay and  the chief officers of the ship remained  with the wreck. The passengers are almost entirely Russian and Polish Jews.

CRANBROOK, June 26.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���An engine and one car-  were ditched at the last switch in the  west yard here on Monday night at  2:30. Engineer Brock, fireman Bowen  and brakeman Churchill escaped serious  injury, although the engine and tender  were thrown down an embankment and  turned over on their side. Engineer  Brock was caught between the tender  and the cab for a few minutes, but  finally crawled through the window. A  switch was turned, and a light placed  _to deceiv_e_the__engineer. The_track_-  men are alarmed, but they have issued  a card denying any knowledge of the  affair. Considerable feeling has been  aroused here and superintendent Bury  has offered $1000 reward for the detection of the guilty parties.  Passengers who arrived in Nelson last  evening from Cranbrook all agree that  the turning of the switch at that point  was the work of some misguided sympathizer of the striking switchmen.  They report that just before the engine  ran upon the open switch some stones  were thrown through tlie windows of  the cab, one of which struck the fireman. The derailed train was the second  sectiorr of a freight. The first section  had been moved orrt, and it was while  the engineer was bringing the second  section out of the yard that tho switch  was turned which resulted in the ditching of the locomotive. The loss of the  locomotive will be seriously felt by the  company, as it was rather* short of power-  on the division, and the ditched locomotive was one of the' big compound  engines used exclusively in hauling  freight. A report was current late last  evening that the offender had been apprehended, but the report lacked confirmation.  EtiU Trusts the Lord.  ROTTERDAM, June 26.���Mr. Kruger  was welcomedat the railroad station on  his arrival here today by the burgomaster, deputations from numerous societies  and many ladies. An official reception  followed. Great enthusiasm was manifested everywhere. In a speech of welcome at the town, hall, the burgomaster-  spoke of the similarity between the  Transvaal and the Dutch struggles for  libertv, and said that Rotterdam wished through Mr.' Kruger to pay homage  to the little Boer natron which had  shown such faith and confidence in its  own strength. Mr. Kruger in a brief  reply deplored the fact that his country  was cut off from supplies and ammunition, whereas the Dutch had had their  own supplies during their struggle. He  was fully convinced that the Lord would  deliver his country in His own good  time.  SEATTLE,  June 26.���After 20  years  in the tepees of western Indians, Father  Aloysius Jacquet, with body racked by  rheumatism, is now on his way to frozen  Nome, in which wild camp he will be  the  first   regular  priest.    Since    1882  Father   Jacquet,   a   Jesuit   priest,   has  traveled over the sage brush plains and  through   the   thick   wooded   mountain  valleys of eastern Washington and Idaho, educating the naked savages of that  region to civilization and religion.    He  is now on his way to  build the first  Catholic chapel and the first Catholic  hospital  for the rough  miners of the  newest and most northern placer camp  in the world.  Father Jacquet wil be the first Catholic priest to have charge of Nome as  a parish. Before him Father Dreka  made occasional trips from St. Michael  Last February Father Dreka was on  his winter journey from St. Michael  to Nome. The great blizzard which  claimed so many victime overtook him.  With the priest was a native lad who  had acted as a guide and helper.  After 24 hours' constant struggling  in the face of the bitter wind the boy  became exhausted. The priest wrapped  him in a blanket and drew the sled  through the fast deepening drifts. Two  days and two nights the blizzard raged  and the old priest struggled on with the  dying boy. On the morning of the third  day the -"priest crawled into a cabin on  the outskirts of Nome. The boy on the  sled had long since .died. The priest,  his face frozen and black, was, at last  reports from Nome, in a dying condition.  Father Jacquet will finish the work  Father Dreka had attempted to begin  at Nome. Twenty years as priest in  the wildest country of the northwest  has fitted Father Jacauet to understand  the ways of the roughest miners and  of the most ignorant natives. . Twenty  years ago he left his studies in .London  to take a parish iir Washington and Ida-'  ho. Four"tnl5cs~"of naked Tndians"and  the wildest of western miners constituted the membership of his flock. The  former were intractable and sullen; the  latter tolerated the black robed visitor  with an amused and half contemptuous  curiosity. '  Father Jacauet went flrst to work  among the savages. Summer and win-  tor he lived in their tepees. The work  was difficult beyond the tolling and the  hardships were more terrible than man  is often called upon to endure. But  Father Jacquet converted the Indians  and ho awoke the lonely whites to a  realization of the religion they had  forgotten. He built chapels and later  founded churches in the small settlements. As these later grew to towns  other priests came to take charge, but  among the old pioneers Father Jacquet  was always most loved of all the clergy.  Tears of privation and exposure on  the frontier finally sowed the seeds of  disease in the priest's constitution. During the past two or three winters he  has sought the climate of California.  -At- the springs- of-Paso-Del-Robles-he  has undergone treatment for nervous  rheumatism which has kept him on the  rack of keenest torture for weeks at  a time. From one of these sieges of rll-  ness he departed a short time since fortius city, where he took a steamer for  the windswept northern beach, the scene  of his future labors. Many say that the  man has sought" his death. When men  have reasoned with him on tho subect  Father Jacquet has shrugged his shoulders. Perhaps he thought at such times  of the motto of his order, "For the  Greater Glory of God."  prints. There was a Blight flush on  his sallow cheeks, but otherwise he  seemed too businesslike to be affected  very much by his sudden acquisition of  riches. Hastily shaking hands with  us, he hurried away, to 'catch a train,'  he said. 'I suppose he'll go home now  for a week and celebrate,' said I. 'Indeed he will not,' replied the director.  'He will go directly back to his work  in Homestead. He has been promoted  from the foremanship of a department,  and will now take charge of an entire  plant. His salary has been multiplied  several times, and he has in his pocket  a large block of steel trust stock; but  he will be too busy to celebrate.' "  So it appears that to become a millionaire is too common to exhilarate  a man.  NOT OF THE BOURBON TYPE  WHAT A BANK MANAGER BAYS  OF OUR POLITICAL PARTIES.  -ft  American Business Methods.

Telegrams, in fact, are no longer up to date  in the United States, and few busy men  ever   use  a  pen   except  to  sign  their  names.   They do not even dictate their  letters.   They speak into a phonograph  and   have 'their   message   typewritten  from the instrument.   Life in the States  is  one  perpetual  whirl  of telephones,  telesemes,  phonographs,  electric   bells,  motors, lifts and automatic instruments.  To me such a life' would not be worth  living, and the mere sight of it is incompatible   with   continuous   thought.  But business seems to be done in that  way.   And I did not learn that the percentage of suicide or insanity was very  seriously increased by these truly-maddening inventions.  Making Millionaires  "As I was standing in the outer office of the new Steel Trust in Pittsburg," says an anonymous writer in  Citizen and Country, "I discovered the  process by which a millionaire.is made  in a moment. One of the directors, who  was acting as my guide through the  building, called my attention to a man  who was waiting to be shown into Mr.  Schwab's private office. ��� 'That man,'  said he, 'is about to be made a member  of the company, though he has not yet  been told of his good fortune.! The  prospective millionaire certainly did not  look his part. He was dressed in the  working clothes of a mechanic. His  hands were hard and grimy and there  were several black smudges across his  face. He was about 40 years of age,  with a face that indicated thoughtful-  ness and determination. He had somewhat of a fatigued look, as if he had  been working very hard over a difficult problem. Under his arm he carried a roll of blue prints, at which he  occasionally looked with a nervous,  earnest glance. 'He is about to submit  the drawings of. a new invention to Mr.  Schwab,' said my friend, the director.  The door of the inner oflice opened and  a boy in uniform beckoned to the inventor. After he had gone in, the director said, 'Let us wait here and congratulate him. He will not be inside more  than a few minutes. Mr. Schwab doesn't  require much time to transact business.'  We waited a little more than 10 minutes, and then the inventor reappeared,  still hugging tightly his precious blue  _  J  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired in Brief.

"I have found that persons of clean  life, of honorable, upright, religious  character, not only do not display an  indifference to the approach of death,"  says Dr. Andrews of Philadelphia, who  has seen 2000 deaths, "as those of grosser life do, but welcome it as a relief  from care ami toil. There is something  about the approach of death that reconciles men to it. The senses are dulled,  the perceptive faculties aro blunted and  the end comes quietly, painlessly, like  a gentle sleep. In this condition���I  mean on the approach of death���those  who retain meir faculties to any degree  become more or less philosophers. They  know that death is inevitable, that it is  only a question of hours, and they accept the verdict without any demonstration and in a philosophical way. In  all my experience I have never found a  case in whicli a dying man or woman  complained against the inevitable, attempted to fight its approach or ever-  feared it. It is only in health that we  fear death. When we become ill, when  we have sustained some injury of a serious nature, the fear of death seems to  disappear."  Bite  Selected.  ST. LOUIS, June 25���Forest Park was  today selected as the site on which to  hold the world's fair in this city in 1903,  to commemorate the one hundreth anniversary   of   the   Louisiana   purchase.  Forest Park contains between 1300 and  1400 acres and is easily accessible from  all parts of the city by both steam and  electric railroads, and topographically  is an ideal site for a world's fair.

Wilkle of the  Imperial Bank of Canada is pronounced  on the'question of the establishment of  a Canadian mint.   At the 26th annual  general meeting of the shareholders of  this bank, held at Toronto on the 19th  instant, Mr. Wilkie in his remarks saitl:v  We  have  given  up  prophecy..   Last  year I find that I was congratulating'  you upon the prospects of a bountiful  harvest throughout  Manitoba and the  Northwest    Territories,    and   we    all-  know   now   how  wretchedly   disapoint-  ing was the result.    If, however, I was '  now  asked   as   to   the    prospects    for ;  1901-1902, and  felt at liberty, to ��� offer  an opinion, I would have no hesitation '-  in   saying  from   the   reports   which -I-"  have from our agents and correspond-'  ents,  that a good, harvest is  in sight"  and that good times generally are in'-.'"  store for Canada from the Atlantic to '  the Pacific.   We have at last attracted '  the   notice  and   gained   the  confidence  of  the  foreign   capitalist,   our  forests  and   our  mines   and  our   agricultural  lands .are   being   developed,   immigration is   coming   in from* ��all   quarters,  and   no   longer   do   we   hear   ourselves  and  our  resources  belittled  in  British  and   American   newspapers* and   maga- ���"  zines.  It  -is   fortunate - that   our   political'  parties., are  not  of  the - Bourbon   type,  ���  that they arecnot tied down to theories  and  Shibboleths,  or by  the prejudices  of political ancestry, but have adopted   :  policies to suit the ever-changing conditions of a new country  age the developmentnor our great natural resources by the granting of boun-   ���  ties to iron and steel producers, by re-  *  striding  the   export  of   saw   logsf and -,_  pulpwood in their raw condition, by. en-r .  couraging the refining of nickel, by enlarging our waterways, by. encouraging   .  the   construction. of  colonization   rail-  .wayr*ij,and.>1as^but*vby?-ho'means least. /.  "By' the" aaop'tion "'of- a 'policy1, that' will  create  an  attractive home  market'for "  the product of our own gold and.silver".  mines,   through   the   establishment   of    -  government assay offices and of a branch  of the Royal mint.   Much has been said  outside of parliament against the proposed,    establishments,     which,     however, have been unanimously approved "  of by the house of commons and by the  senate.    I do not concur in the objections which have been raised to those   -  projects,  on  the  contrary,   I  am   more  than ever convinced, from a patriotic,  a  sentimental   and   an   economic  point   '  of view,  that  no  time  should   be  lost  in completing their establishment.   The "  advantage   of   attracting   to    our    own  markets  the  producers  of  an   ever-increasing output of gold and silver, won  from our own territory,  by the establishment of government assay offices is  self-evident:   the   alarm   lest  we   have  an over-production  of gold  and  silver  coin   through   the   establishment   of   a .  mint,   is  needless;   our present   excellent currency system will not be interfered���with.���Canadian���gold���assayed^���  and refined by Americans finds a market  today  in  the shape  of  U.  S.  bars  or U. S. coins, whichever is applied for  by the depositors.    Why should a Dominion   government  assay   and  a   Dominion   government  certificate,   in   the  shape of an  impression  of  his  majesty's  head   upon   each    coin  and    upon  each ingot debase their value or divert  their   course.     It   is   not   necessary   or  expedient that everything in the*shape  of gold or silver purchased at the government assay offices should  be coined  into  sovereigns   or   decimal    coinage���  such   is   not   the   course   of   events   in  Great   Britain     or     in   gold-producing  countries,  such   as   Australia and   tho  United States, where government mints  now exist.    Much of our* Canadian gold  does, under Canadian auspices, find its  market in the shape of ingots or bars.  Its  coinage  into  sovereigns,   half  sovereigns   and   decimal   pieces   will   not  be compulsory.    The profit in the coinage of silver currency will probably encourage our government to devise steps  whicli will  lead  to the substitution of  our own Canadian coinage for the large  amount of  United  States  silver which  now   forms   the   principal   part, of   tho  metallic currency of British  Columbia.  Such a demand for our silver coinage  would, of itself, go far to meet the expenses of the proposed mint.   The profit  to the United States government on their  silver coinage in circulation in Canada  Is estimated at from $100,000 to ?200,-  000, a profit entirely lost to our  government.   Canadian sovereigns will circulate side by side with the product of  the royal mints of England and Australia  wherever   a  British  sovereign  will  pass as currency, and will advertise to  each possessor, for the time being, the  wealth   of  the  Dominion   in  that  precious metal.

The proposal of the West Kootenay  "Power & Light Company to purchase the  city electric light plant is laughed  at  by.everyone, without exception.   There  is no difference of opinion as to the ownership of the electric light plant.   That  must remairr vested in the city for.ail  time.   There is, however, an honest difference of opinion as to the best method  of obtaining additional power for the  city's requirements.    A large majority  of our people favor the installation of.  a power plant .on Kootenay river, and  give as a reason, that we must always  be in a position to encourage the location at Nelson of manufacturing and industrial   works;   that  Nelson  can only  become a large place through large pay  rolls.    A  minority  believe  that if  the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company were to make a reasonable pro-  noeal to sell the city power, for both  power and light purposes, it should be  considered   on   its   merits;   and   if  the  cost   i>er   horse   power   was   anywhere  near what it would cost the city to develop   and   operate   a  like  amount,   it  would be to the city's interest to make  a deal.

The other means no appreciable increase in the city's bonded indebtedness, hence no increase in taxation;  but it would mean that the city would  .AtSilyer'Hill.Mine   "  PILOT BAY, June 26.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Since the breaking up of the  sleigh road to. Crawford bay, work on  ���the Silver Hill mine.has been confined  to a tunnel and drift driven for-exploratory purposes, -no one being  stopped. ��� The contract for this work  has been completed and yesterday all  work was discontinued pending the return of Henry Roy, the managing-director, from Montreal, whither he has gone  for the purpose of arranging a comprehensive plan for the further" development of this promising mine. It is the  intention of the management :to construct a tramway -'from' the mine to the  wagon road, which will���: effect a very  considerable saving in the cost of handling the ore, the rawhide method, which  was adopted last-winter, proving rather  expensive.'

AT THE POINT; OP THE PICK.  "You can't see beyond the point of  the piclc," is a favorite expression with  many practical miners; and a man who  has charge of important mining enterprises wrote me not long since: "My  experience as a- miner tells me that  conjecture and presumption avail but  little against the^'pick and shovel." A  few days ago a rtiaii identified with a  big mining scheme"' in this state remarked on the street: ' "Mining is only  a gamble���I advise men, if they have  money with which,to speculate, to buy  mining stock; but, if they have money  for: investment, to put.it into something  else than a' mine."1  ��� Now, is it true'that success;in mining is- entirely dependent upon chance  or unknown contingencies? The element of chance must be considered, in  every proposition'-to be sure; The farmer who plants runs the risk of losing  his crop by frosts Jate in the,.,spring  or early in the fall; by hail storm, visitation of locusts .or. by fire. 'The. stock  grower suffers heavy losses at times  from contingencies over which, he cannot exercise control, and thus it is in  every walk of life.  Are the risks greater in mining than  in anything else? If so, there must be  reasons for it; and one of the leading  reasons, is that, because people believe  success is dependent upon ch*ance: they  jlo^.not^givejh.emselves^th_e^pj^pj,ratory.  training necessary to make success possible. If there'are no.fixed laws governing mineral deposits, if success is  only a matter of chance, then one man  would do as well in' charge of a mining  enterprise as another. Success would  be purely and solely a matter of luck.  Failure must necessarily follow in any  enterprise when persons imbued with  such ideas enter upon it. Yet we see  them do it in mining every day. The  gambler is not so. foolish as this. He  counts largely on his skill. * What show  would a novice stand in a game.of stallion poker with an experienced player?  But is success iri mining a matter of  chance?" Who are our successful men  today? Are.they not invariably men  who have gained experience in every  day" "life, men Avho have met with a  number of failures and reverses, perhaps, before they acquired the necessary  skill to make them masters and give  them the'ability tb make a success in  their chosen field of effort, but whose  success- is in no sense of the word a  matter of- chance?"  In a monograph on the "Geology of  the Sierra Nevada in its relation to  vein mining," by Amos Bowman, published in 1875, Mr. Bowman said:  "When the truth' first dawned upon  the placer miner that there were ancient rivers in the-hills richer than  those of '49, he was not slow to discover or take advantage of the flrst  principles of hydraulic mining. There  was surely a channel'; that channel had  a definite (though winding) course; it  had a deep gutter; and it had a rim,  or rim rock on either side.  "The man who now expects to pursue profitably the business of hydraulic  mining, without regarding these first  principles, would be deemed a strange  phenomenon, if he- did not sooner or  later outlive his luck."  Then speaking of the development  and production of the quartz veins in  the states, he says:  "We have discovered that the source  of all the gold in certain subterranean  ore channels are as well defined in  many respects as are those of the ancient rivers.  "It may appear some day, when we  know a little more about it. that the  man who would expect to pursue profit-  TELEPHONE 27  HI    _3"3T_5]__iS   &o   OO.

UELSOlsT  STORES   AT  KA.SLO  s_A.3sriDoisr  ably the business of vein mining, without regarding or understanding the nature of these channels, should also  sooner or later expect to outlive his  luc!:."  The laws governing the formation of  placed: deposits are fairly well understood and it would be a poof miner indeed who could not, by virtue of his  past experiences, ue able to predicate  with coriiparative accuracy' something  of the probabilities "beyond the point  of the rick."  The time has arrived iri'quartz mining that Mr.. Bowman looked forward  to���"when we know a little more about  it;" when we know to a certainty that  ore deposits were made in ore channels,  as he said; not subterranean, however,  as he supposed, except perhaps, in a few  isolated instances, but channels made  on the face of the earth and governed  -by ��� the same laws that" govern stream  action at the present day.  Is" it a matter of chance that successful ririning'men go into other states  and find good properties? They would  not say so. Those who are acquainted  with the circumstances would not say  so. Their success is almost entirely  due to. their abi ��� ny and ' pluck. ��� ���'  ' That "you can't see beyond the point  of the .pick." that "mining is a gamble," that "one man can see upder the  ground as far as;.another" are excuses  of men' who believe.iri. luck arid who  fair to take cognizance of the' fact that  their failures are due; in most instances,  to lack of training or experience,-'some  points being overlooked that might have  been plain as day to a skilled miner.  The old saying-1-" 'Tis not,in our;stars,  but in ourselves that we are underlings," applies to mining as to everything else..  Mining: men visit prospects every day  that inexperienced men think are prospective bonanzas and walk away knowing that every reasonable probability is  against these prospects ever amounting  to anything. "Would the mining men  feel this assurance if they couldn't see  "beyond the point of the pick?"  Millions of dollars are invested in  mining propositions, every year and  those investments are at least as remunerative as investments in other-  lines of industry. Eachv recurring year  such investments become safer and more  productive by virtue of the'increased  knowledge and skill that come with extended-study and experience. The man  whose mining theory doesn't enable him  to see "beyond the point of the pick"  should follow the homely, but terse advice���'.'Trade the theory' off for a yellow  dog and then shoot the dog."
