BUILDING OF MARYSVILLE SMELTER STIRS UP THE C. P. R.   .  PEOPLE.     '   '   '    !_  A mooting of the shareholders of the  Molly Gibson Mining Compay was held  in Nelson yesterday for the purpose of  confirming the directors in tlieir powers  to borrow the sum of $120,000.   It is understood that* this amount* will be necessary in the way of improvements to  the profitable   operation, of   the   Molly  Gibson.   The money'will probably be advanced by Chicago people and while the  directois had the power to negotiate the  loan it was thought that matters would  be rendcied easier if the resolution empowering the directors ,to make, such a  loan, were" passed by tho shareholders.  Just how this sum will be cxpended^by  tho directors is a matter they have not  ; decided' upon as yet.   .Two courses are  open to them.   One is putting in of a mill'  'to treat the low grade oie<from the property which will not  stand  the  present  heavy transportation charges, and the  second  course  is  for. the  dnectors  to.  ���build p. small smelter near the mouth of  Kokanee creek.** This would   mean   a  system of fire concentration and whilo  ,it    would    be rmore    expensive , than.  -that1 of water'concentration it is*thought  that the saving in values which it would'  , -secure will*more than make up .to the,  company tho difference in cost of opera-  - tion.-. ,Tho decision of the directors jipon  this point will not bo made until-some  'time, next spring.    In the interval the  pibperty itself will be   thoroughly   ex-  plorde and.tests made with ore with a  viow ,of' determining which method of  treatment'will givo best' results!! vl The  company has now a force of thirty men  at tho mine and tho property is said to,  bo looking better .than   at   any   other  period in-its development.. 'Colonel Ray'  .says the;force-will.be ;i*icreapecl..-to GQ.,  01 Go and 'the exploratory^.work "carried  ������"-  on stcadil}..'    Shipments  will  be  com-  ,n_enced from the.property just as ..soon  *as there is sufficient snow to" make good  clipping, but just what the winter's ton-  nago will be the" colonel did not care to  hazard an estimate." The ledge was cut  ;*. short time ago in-the tunnel driven  .fiom the tramway,level  and,has  been  ���drifted upon for some 29 feet.- At this  " ;point it carries a good body of shipping'  ioro but it is thought that tlie richest  portion of the pay-chute which was.op-,  .ened in the upper workings has yet to bo  encountered.  J. C. Drewry arrived in Nelson yesterday from Rossland.    He is on his way  to the True Blue mine at- Kaslo, and  from there he will go to the St. Eugene  and Great Dane properties.   Mr. Drewr*/  is of the opinion that the recent activity  oi the Canadian Pacific'Railway people  with respect to the establishment ot a  relincry is in no small measure due to  tho .commencement of operations inj'ho^  Marysvillo smelter, which according to  tho statements of the men interested in  this smelter scheme will keep the C.P.R.  people guessing for some time.   Already  ho said it was intimated that the United  States smeltor trust was .interested in  tho venture and it would not bo very surprising if this should prove the case, nor  would it be unwelcome, since it could be  counted  upon  as  having tbe effect of  stirring tbo C.P.R. people up..Mr. Drewry said he was aware that the question  of   tonnage   had   been   the   stumbling  block in tho way of tho refinery project,'  .but he thought this difficulty would bo  1 .amoved by the 1st of January.    The  ���present arrangement between the United  I States lead producers and the smelter  ��� tiust expires then, and the outlook was  *.not considered favorable for a renewal  ->f the present arrangement.   On the contrary, it ioked very  much   as  if  there  ���would be a conflict. The present arrange-  uncnt works to the disadvantage of the  Tl-ritish Columbia mines, so that if it is  Bpjjet it cannot but work out to their advantage;.    If the lead producers   of   the  United Slates started in  to   fight   the  smelter trust it would be but reasonable  to suppose that the trust will do what it  .can to put the United States producers  .into competition{with the lead producers  of British Columbia and Mexico.   This  would give an added value to the British  Columbia lead and something along this  line was necessary. bef ore the management ot the St. Eugene-would consider  iho question of shipping.   The company  r^vas not experiencing any difficulty witli  ifcsoect to tho marketing of its product,  hut'it did not censider the piesent quota-  lion!-   sufficiently   inviting   and    could  afford to wait in view of the prospect of  better prices.    Tlio St, Eugene mill is  now in shape to turn ont 100 tons of  ���concentrates.    This means an ore ton-  'nage of over 400 tons per day, .so that  ���tho������.prooevty becoines a factor in determining the probable lead output .of; tbe  - -yea\: ��� '      ��� ' .:'   \_ "' y: .���' '  John McKane arrived in Nelson yeste.-  "day from the Lavina group. He'says the  Xa yina continues to develop nicely. The  -sacking of ore is going on and there is  -.how in the neighborhood of 109 tons  .ready for'shipment. Mr. McKane con-  ���"finals'the report of the deal on the Mc-  Luugjiilin and Clinton properties which  "adjoin the Lavina. There are nine claims  ���-'-.in' this group, the principal owners of  which are McLaiiglia and Clinton. The  -DW-jerj. claim to have the Lavina ledge.  Their showing is altogether on the surface ana consists of stripping the cross-  cutting of the vein. They had also  started a ciosscut tunnel to get in under  a promising showing they had on the  suiface, but it had not boen run in far  enough when the deal was made to render it of any value in showing up the  propertj. The men who have secured  the bond upon the property are residents  ot Boston. The bond calls for the payment ot $42,000 in payments scattered  over a considerable period. 'The holders^  of the bond'are having the entire group  of claims surveyed and >i. om the scale  upon .yhich work is being planned for  the winter it is evident that the Boston  men are well satisfied with tlieir holding and that they intend to complete  their payments.

Olaim Facts Were Misrepresented.'  ROSSLAND, October 23.���[Special to  Tho Tribune.]���A party of eleven arrived here this afternoon, having walked in from West Robson, where' they  deserted herder Ingram's Doukhobors  on Tuesday night. Tho men say that  Ingram positively assured them that  the labor troubles here wero all set-  tied; that three hundred union men  had returned to work, and that 150  union men had applied to the Le Roi  company for work but lhe company  did not want them. Wiien they got co  Robson and found out the true state of  affairs, they refurcd to enter herdisr  Ingram's train and made the distance  afoot. The men had no money and  went without food until they struck  Rossland. None ol them will .go to  work at the Le Roi mines, and they all  resent very -strongly the way, the' matters h.i.o been misrepresented to thorn.  The town has been unusually quiet all  day and there is nothing now to report  in tho strike situation.  The Tribune has no means of getting  special information regarding'the cost  "of the electric lighting plant to the city,'  or the cost of operating and maintaining  it. The figures printed below are taken  fiom the reports of the city auditor,"4il  except-Jthose'uri-ler tfie^Kea'ds "Interest,".  "Sinking 'Fundi!' anil ^''Depreciation.'.'  The figures, under these!heads are .hot  official, but they are approximated fairly.  These figures show that the electric  lighting plant has earned the city $31,-  323.70 over and above operating expenses  and,all charges for maintenance for'the  .���three 'years "-ending-}.June- 30th last."'-. If  .nterest'on ltlie,1.cost*.bf the plantNis "ad-"  de'd to the operating expenses, it has  earned* ?23,073.70." If the airiounfplaced  in the sinking'fund to ledeem the debentures issued is"added, it has earned  $16,473.70. These'figures clearly show  ���that the "electric lighting plant has been  "earning good,-.profit's right along "everyday .'since the''plant was taken over by-  tliO'City. . ^  4% Th'e .Tribune'contends'that the present'  cityL.cbuncil,"althbugl_-they have had the'  entire revenue of the city for the cur-  .Knt.year at'their free disposal, have not  made "any effort to carry out th'e pledges,  they'-niado when seeking nomination at  'the hands,of-their'friends.'

And now;, at  the" time whenlthe'titlo 'to ' that'' land,  might b'e~secured';by ,a show of honesty  -of purpose, what -do we find the council  , doing? -Nothing, morel or less than dickering, with .the - corporation -t which is doing its utmost-Ho get-a monopoly of the  '.water running'" in Kootenay river.   The  ..council, is-jt'elling; the" government', that  J,he, city^doesvnot want'a.aite'ior^a;power  station on'Kootenay , river;, that, it.is  making arrangements' with' the   West  Kootenay Power & Lightl Company for  all the power ;it needs at present; that  the city'does not want.torbe bothered  with such undertakings* ''as "^developing  water power on Kootenay river; that it  is too big-a/job for'a young and .lusty  and enterprising  and -progressive  city  to undertake.  ���       ��� ' -       ���        -  The council .is saying'to the people  of Nelson; that there is no use of trying  lo induce industrial enterprises to locate here; that too-much effort would be  required, and making effort to do things  is no longer good form among the "best  people." The-hopes and ambitions of  tho progressive element, who expected  to see Nelson grow to be a rival of  Spokane, are treated as mere'vagaries  of the unthinking classes."

Freak of a Nevada Crank.  PARIS,. October 23.���Paris was stupefied yesterday to find usclt under the  thumb of an American vice hunter who  is seemingly a Dr. Parkhurst and a Carrie Nation combined.   The name of the  aggressive individual is Spiirtacus Jof-  fcison Best.   Ho hails fiom Nevada and  has been hero twelve ycais as a professor of English literature in a small private college.   All these years Paris has  remained for   piofessor  Best  a mysterious sea upon which he dared not venture.: His life was spent  between  his  boarding-house, the school and a public  library, until, he met a pretty Salvation  Army-lass who. made him ashamed of  his selfish quietude and instilled some of  her fiery desire; for reform, into the in-  oifensive, bespectacled westerner.   Once  conscious ; of   his   "duty," Best, sallied  forth with rabid.energy.    First he'jex-  ploited the.boulevards, calling upon the  policemen to arrest every woman who  spoke to, him in .passing.   He appeared  in court last week as the lone prosecutor of more than three dozen women.  After sentencing.them the judge kindly  advised the American to stay at home  after dark because the tribunal could not  afford  to operate  for  his sole   benefit.  But Best claimed he had a right to parade the streets  and   he   continued to  cause arrests till the policemen would  run at the very sight of him.   Next the  professor   became   conspicuous   at   the  Moulin Rouge, where he paralyzed the  merry crowds by suddenly admonishing,  the dancing girls on the error of, their  ways. His broken French sermon finally  raised such a roar that he became furious and attacked the young sultan of  Johore in English for being there.   This  caused the dissolute eastern potentate  to run.  ,The next day M. Lepine, the  perfect of police,  annoyed   at  all   this  commotion, summoned the well-meaning  Yankee and paternally advised him to  keep quiet.  "Paris has been wicked a long time,"  said the perfect, "and I am afraid your  single-handed endeavor is bound to  prove fruitless. Meanwhile you are giving us lots of work, This qity is tpo  74 | large.   Why don't you go practice flrst  ' \       .        v    y_~~ ��, *" "*"   ��     y  Happenings in.

Fortier, flnancir. seo-  tetory. y ������-'���  The Economist evidently wants to be  classed as a "trimmer" on the electric  light deal.' There was no trimming when  David Mark Carley, less than a year ago,  helped pen   tho   following,   which   was  signed by Frank Fletcher in his presence:    "I believe that the city has val-  " uable assets in the water and electric  " light systems, and while in the council  "I did everything possible to safeguard'  "these assets; and if elected mayor no  " act or vote of mine will be in favor of  " allowing any outside corporate inter-  " est to become a competitor with the  " city in the business of electric lighting,  "a business im which the city has al-  " ready invested $70,000."   David Mark  Carley and Fra__-_ Fletcher were of one  Eoosevelt and the South.  President Roosevelt is not likely to be  disturbed by, the shrieks of horror and  rage that are heard from the South over  his action   in entertaining  at his   own  tablo Booker T. Washington, who has  brains, character and a daik skin. If he  took the trouble to consider the matter  at all, the   president   knew   what   the  Southern  politicians'would say of hi3  extension of social courtesy to a black  ,man, and bad the characteristic inde-.  pendence to do what seemed to him right  without regard to its effect upon' his political fortunes.   The spirit that prompted him to invite the head of the Tuske-  gee Institute and chief representative of  a largo body of- fellow-citizens to dine  at his table was the same that moved  him to appoint Democrats to federal offices in the South and won for him in  tho latter case the warmest commendation of the very class that is now clamoring for his social and political ostracism.  It-is as futile now as it was fifty years  ago to argue such-a matter   with   the  South.   To' point out that Mr. Washington is the intellectual superior of editors  and politicians who call him a nigger���  a more useful citizen, - doing a greater ���  work than they are capable even of comprehending���would oniy incite them to  greater virulence of speech and prolong  an unprofitable controversy.   Enough to  say that president Roosevelt has confirmed the good opinion of his character  formed   by   right-thinking men  whose  perceptions are  not   obscured   by  prejudice.���Philadelphia   Noith   American.  the muscular "peeler" .gave each comer  .in turn a, grip^-that had no lack,of cordiality. , ,'!T*he jauld ~ man's uncommon  veegoroLUs;*at.his time o' life," observed  one unsuspecting Scot,as'-he,stroked-his  fingers. :��� "He is'that," concurred.another  of the, policeman's victims, '���*- but did ye  'notice,,his nails?"���New York World.. >  .     .The Duke>IsNot Affected.

The announcement from Canada that  the duke and duchess of Cornwall have  had to give up promiscuous hand-shaking on the ground that though the spirit  is willing the flesh is weak, recalls an  incident of ,Mr. Gladstone's memorable  Midlothian tour. On one occasion there  was a great hand-shaking ordeal at- the  window of the old gentleman's railway  carriage, and he was rapidly getting the  worst of it.

In fact  }they would prefer to,be under it rather  '.than under any other foregn power.   As  ;an evidence of this he predicted a large  emigration to Canada and Australia, the  ���reason for the emigration being a dis-  jlike to remain in  the altered circumstances beside the South Africans whom  .they had known in former days.

It'is'repelled that a deal is on for  the bondiiig of the Godfrey Birtsch discovery on Sheep creek for $70,000. Thera  aro five claims included in the deal, and  as there has: been little or no work dono  upoi. the propei ty, the size of the bond  asked is a good indication of the value  upon the surface showing.

It is understood that there will  be a time limit in the contaract so that  the building will be completed with the  least possible, delay, it being the desire-  of the company to be in the market for  the supplying of power by the  flrst  of  January.    At the outset the   company,  will develop 3000 horse power, but the'  plant has been designed   so   that   6000  horse power can be developed.   Mr. Anderson says the company is in the verv  fortunate" position of having the market  awaiting- it for the supplying of power.  Tho power generated at Cascade is to be  transmitted by pole lines to Phoenix, a  distance,of 22 miles, and from Phoenix  to such, other points as may offer business for .the power company.    The distance for which this power can be satisfactorily transmitted has not yet "been  determined, but Mr. Anderson is of the  opinion that the loss of energy in the 22  miles transmission to Phoenix will not  exceed 10 per cent.

Barn, a'  story was that the prisoners and himself  coi bpii'ed to rob a gaviblcr named Mc-  Googan us the latter was on the read  from Greenwood to Phoenix, a trip  which hci v as in the habit of making  every Sunday morning.

Extraordinary Mining.  PHILADELPHIA,   October   23.���Mining extraordinary   will   alone   describe  the search for gold and silver now being conducted at the old mint by^ Dr. D.  K. Tuttle, head of the   department   of  melting and refining, and about a dozen  of his most expert men.  .In about'ten*  days   everything  in   the   old   building  which pan be used in the new will have  been transferred, and me old will become bare and tenantless.   The last step  preliminary to the dismantling of the  old melting room is the mining for precious metals in it.   For the prospecting  now is on the floors,  the , ceilings, the  .tables, in, craclcs-and-crannies of boxes,  on old dusty shelves,   and,   finally,. in  chimneys, where soot and dust have been  accumulating for more than a" half century. ' Just as an experiment a week ago,  Dr. Tuttle collected some of the soot out  of a flue leading from, one of the eleven  furnaces in* the room.    In the memory  of the "oldest man there this had never  been done before.   This bare handful of  black > dirt contained'2 1-2 per cent of  gold and silver.- That percentage indicates that in a ton of soot'and dust there  would be found fifty.pounds of precious  metals, worth between "?8000, and $10,000.  ���More than 1000 tons of the' two metals,  worth morethan $2,000,000,000, have been  ^melted, in the eld furnaces.    There are  at least 500, pounds'of this,-worth per-'  haps .'J3000. - '__'*        -  The brick work was, torn away; each-  brick'^ being - scraped and afterward  shavedJwith chisels, ;all the - ordinary  looking dirt and. dust, falling into receptacles .where it is now carefully kept to  be-thrown'into & furnace and the valuable deposit "sweated out," as it is  called." - ,   -   '  The value of the sweepings on the  floor ,of the melting room has been frequently . referred to, but Dr.' Turtle's  miners do' not stop at 'that'. Now they  are> prospecting the brooms which- do  the sweeping, they are'working out the  wooden chairs; the wooden benches,  the wooden boxes, tne ceilings the window frames, the tiniest corner and even  a long shelf running around the room  on which crucibles have beer, stored for  years. In all of these the "men have I  made rich finds.     -      ���'**������.  IMPERIAL BBEWING COMPANY  * EMERSON & ___.ISTEI.E1..

Murphy accepted  and the stranger paid down $200 to bind  the   bargain,   departing   for this   city,  where he was to obtain the services of  a notary and   return -next   day.   That  evening a second stranger appeared at  the farm and proceeded to fall in love  with the place.   His enthusiasm reached  the pitch where he offered Murphy $0  an acre more for the land than had the  first man, and he begged Murphy to induce the first stranger to call the deal  oft*.   He departed, after telling Murphy  he would return next   evening   for an  answer.   Next morning  the   first  man  returned, and would only consent to release Murphy from the bargain upon being returned his deposit, of   $200   and  .?1500 additional.    Murphy   still   awaits  the return of the second stranger and  concluded only today t&at he was the  victim of a bunco gajme.
