The}- do not like the idea of bolstering an  iudustiy that cannot stand on its own legs. Protection would  suit them better, while reciprocity with the United States would  make the lead business in Canada a wonderful bonanza. In  order to show what an Ontario paper thinks about the lead  bonus, we append the following from the Toronto Sun:  "The government has decided that the farmers and other productive workers is Canada shall make good the loss on lead  mining by paying a bonus. There is no industry in which the  absurdity of a bonus stands out more plainly than in mining.  It is not a perpetual industry with a future that can be dangled  before the taxpayers. With the exhaustion of the mineral deposits it must come to an end. There are always some deposits  that will not* pay the cost of working them. It will cost say $n  to produce $10 worth of metal from them. If $2 be taken from  the taxpayers and given tp the owner of such a mine he gets a  profit instead of a loss of one dollar. The industry has been  kept in' operation, the people in the aggregate are one dollar  poorer in consequence, two dollars have been taken unjustly  from certain people and given to others, and there is also a loss  through the exhaustion of a mineral deposit that might become  valuable in future.  "The bonus to be given is $15 a ton on lead, up to half a million dollars a year| with a provision for reduction if the price in  London falls below ^12.10 per ton of 2240 pounds. Canada's production of lead is about 30,000 tons a year and her consumption  12,000 tons, of which 7000 tons are imported in the form of  corroded lead for paint making. ' The bonused lead will be sold  abroad, where any possible benefit that may arise will be distributed. The situation is complicated by the position of the  C.P.R., which controls both the hauling and smelting of the ores  as well as the marketing of the lead and can charge as it pleases.  It has levied more than the traffic can bear, so the bonus, if it  .keeps the mines active, will go virtually to the railway.  "All the lead ores contain silver. The Americans produce  chiefty dry ores rich ~ in silver, and the Canadians chiefly wet  ores with the; lead' values greater in proportion. The smelters  use as much dry ores as possible to make their bullion rich, for  <A HOOSIER "DOCTOR MAKES LIFE  Princeton Star: "News from Granite  creek of the recent strike, though fragmentary, continue to bear out the encouraging report made last week in the Star.  Further investigation has revealed a fine  showing of quartz, whicli is. however,  considerably broken up. At a very conservative estimate a good quality will rnn  from $400 to $500 to the ton, while a large  body would run from $35 to $80 per ton.  The formation is shist with lime on one  side. From the way the lead can be  traced it shows from 12 to 15 feet wide  and can be traced about five miles on each  side of the creek. It has not been prospected much but it is reported that gold  has been found in the rock by a few of  the locators. Altogether about 50 pros-  have gone to the new gold belt. Last  year it was credibly reported about $2000  in placer gold and about $100 in platinum  were taken from Granite creek by the  Chinese. In the early days fortunes were  made placering, now, however, all eyes  are fixed on the gold in the rock and it is  believed that Granite creek will yet regain its former prestige as a gold producer.  The first shipment of coal from the  mines of the International Coal & Coke  company of Blairmore was made last  week, when one car of coal was shipped  to Phoenix. The coal "will be used for operating the steam shovel in the surface  workings of the Granby mines.   Another  car of coal is en route to the Granby  smelter. Although the work at the coal  mines is only in its initial stage, about 25  miners are employed and two carloads of  coal are being taken out daily in the  course of regular* development. The International Coal & Coke company, with a  capital stock of $3,000,000 was recently organized by leading official of the Granby  company.  Byron N. White of the Slocan Star  mine passed through to Sandon this morning. Mr. White ' is; very enthusiastic  about the future of tie Kootenays and  thinks that Nelson will be booming in a  few months. He thinks that siiver will  reach 65 cents an ounce and stay there.  Anyone "who has followed the fate of silver knows that the white metal is on the  eve of a permanent rise.  After being closed ' down for many  months work has been resumed on the  Last Chance, one of the famous mines of  the Slocan.   .  Dr. Arthur will: examine the Silver  Glance at Bear lake; with a view to resuming operations on the property.  Approacbing.prosperity is bringing back  many old-timers back to the Slocan, along  with many faces new to the camp.  The Slocan Star ��� at> Sandon has paid  nearly $500,000 in dividends to its owners-  It is run by business men who know the  difference between a stope and abeer keg.  Paul Hauck has leased the Champion  and Sapphire claims in the Slocan and  will start work this week.  C. F. Caldwell reports that the crosscut  tunnel on the Pontiac will be driven a total length of 600 feet.  Work is being prosecuted on the Province, a claim on Kaslo creek, owned by  Henry Giegerich.  Fifty men are working on the Silver  Flume and the mine will be shipping in a ;  few days.  George  Alexander is  re-opening  the,  many Slocan mines in which he is interested.  The Rochester owners have expended  $90,000 on the Hartney, near New Denver.  The long tunnel on the Marion near  New Denver will be finished this year.  A tunnel 500 yards long will be rim on  the Antoine in the Slocan.  About 200 prospectors are staking the  ground along Poplar creek.  An aerial tramway is being put in at  the Idaho, in the Slocan.  The Payne will have its zinc plant running early iu August.  The Whitewater will resume operations  in a few days.  c/1 Critical Reply to Mrs. Clayton's  Idealistic TXeltos on Socialism  [Associated l'ress to The Evening Tribune ]  Anderson, Indiana, July 25.���With  one ounce of salt, six ounces of pure water, six ounces of ninety per cent alcohol,  all mixed in an ordinary glass dish, and  two ounces of aqua amonia in five small  plates, aud all covered by an air-tight  glass globe, Dr. Charles W. Littlefield of  Alexandra, Indiana, declares that he has  created life in the form of thousands of  atoms of animated substances similar to.  well developed germs of life and trilobites.  It has not been determined what the  germs or atoms would propogate.  [Associated Press to The Evening'Tribune]  .  London, July 25.���A long distance de-  =sputch'fronrSofiaf^Bi_garia7"datecl^Tues-  day, appeal's in one of the London papers  this morning, which quietly discusses  trade matters, describes a review of tlie  troops, and contains no indication of  trouble or reference to affairs at the palace.  A Vienna despatch, just received, says  that prince Ferdinand lias not come to  Vienna, that he passed through Budapest  at ono o'clock this morning, seeing nobody, and proceeded immediately to Eb-  enthal, in the Austrian Alps, where his  mother lives, taking with him a numerous suite. It is stated that a cabinet ro-  nency has been arranged for a month, although it is generally admitted that tlio  political situation is not the rosiest. Although the wiu- party is anxious for a  trial of strength witli Turkey, there is absolutely no confirmation from any source  of revolutionary rumors. It is said in  quarters that prince Ferdinand warned  tho Ausriau and Russian governments  that he would not return unless the powers guaranteed the application of. Macedonian reforms, but the statement is not  confirmed.  [Associated Press to The Evening Tribune.]  New York, July 25.���Shamrock I, the  defeated cup challenger of four years ago,  will have a duel with the Columbia, over  the America Cup course, or at Newport,  probably after the Cup races are decided.  E. D. Morgan at Newport, has declared  his willingness to race Columbia, her  former adversary, under any conditions  and at any time suitable to sir Thomas  Lipton. Sir Thomas has accepted the offer and a race is certain.  [Associixted l'ress to The Evening Tribune.]  London, July 25.���The Standard this  morning prints a Tien Tsiu despatch  which says that the New Chwang: trains  are crowded with Russian troops going in  the direction of Port Arthur and that  these trains' are taking precedence over  noi-mal traffic and that heavy guns and  other artillery is also being sent.  [Associated Press to The Evening Tribune.]  Paws, July 25.���Five witnesses who  have been examined in connection with  the Fail* will, declare that they did not  see Moraune and Mas, the cyclists who  declared in New York that they were the  only witnesses of the tragedy on or near  tlie scene of the accident. Mas has visited the scene with counsel, with a view  to preparing his defence in the present  perjury elirrges against him and has also  taken a number ���of photographs while  there. ���       , _^  [Associated Press to Thc Evening Tribune.1  London, July-25.���The Times prints a  Pekin despatch commenting ou the Manchurian situation,. which says that Russia's declaration to the powers on_tho subject of opening Manchurian ports, which  prince Ching asserts was not communicated to China, is interpreted in Pekin to  -nioan-thatrRussia'wil^not^perniit'ChiiSr  to enter into any engagements with other  powers regarding Manchuria which may  embarrass Russia in tlie future when the  territory finally becomes a Russian province. Hence, the correspondent says,  Russia's refusal to allow foreign settlements similar to those in Chinese treaty  ports. It is openly contended by Russians  that Harbin i.s a purely Russian city, to  which a foreign consul could only be appointed with Russian consent'. If the  United States, continues the correspondent, considers the declaration satisfactory and believes Russia will assist in developing foreign trade in Manchuria, it  must be kept in surprising ignorance of  the unhappy experience of. an American  trading company both at Vludivostock  and Port Arthur. The air is full of rumors and the situation seems pregnant  with possibilities. There is no pretence  of evacuation in Manchuria. On the contrary reinforcements iu-e constantly arriving. There is a continuous southward  movement of troops and guns, whilst as a  result of general Kurapatkin's visit, Dalny  is to have two powerful forts and a garrison of 15,000. The coast and railway  from Port Arthur to a point two sections  above Dalny, is to be strongly fortified.  There are incessant shipments of powder  and foodstuffs to Port Arthur and feverish drilling and gun practise of the Russian fleet, all of which may forbode war,  but whicli accounts for the fear, common  in North China, that war is possible. After describing the movement of Russian  troops to oth'er points, the despatch concludes by saying that the stories of it  British and Japan joint note to Russia,  are fictitious as far as can be ascertained  in Pekin. Up to the present time, says  the despatch, no policy could be more reasonable or more self-restrained than Japan's, but that it is impossible to conceal  the fact that the uncertainty of the future causes uneasiness.  Kamloops, July 24.���Alex. Louis, the  Indian, who was sentenced to be hanged  for the murder of his squaw at Vernon,  was executed here this morning, in the  goal yard at 8 o'clock by hangman Radcliffe. He went to the scaffold with a  fcmile aud seemed satisfied that the end  was so near.  I regret to see that Mrs. .'Clayton has  fallen into the same mistaken judgment  of my views on Socialism as many others  have done on other aubjects. Criticism  of a system does not necessarily imply  that the criticiser is an ''enemy," far  from it; I hardly think that any who  may have read niy article can possibly  conclude that I am hostile to Socialism. I  have taken upon myself recently'to criticise modern education and religion; it  does not follow that I am necessarily an  enemy to good education nor Christianity  as I conceive it. Far from it, for none  more than I realize that education, faulty  though it is, is still doing for the world,  while it is my belief that to the church belongs the great work of regenerating the  world by way of raising their present ultra exoteric teachings for that which shall  embody the spirit as contrasted with the  husk of thc letter now being fed to the  multitude.  Mrs. Clayton makes a point of tlie tremendous success of Socialism in Germany;  while it cannot be ignored as a factor in  tlie politics of that land, it will be found  on closer inspection to be the forced outcome of the hostility of the present em-  ^peroi-_agaiiistLfrccktliought=and-speochand-  has not come as the natural growth of the  people of that laud. Now it is the belief  of tlie school of thought to which I belong, that any line of action that does not  come naturally aniong people as tlie outcome of thought along any particular line,  is built on thc shifting sands of fanciful  speculation and may be usurped at anytime by some new popular conception  looking to the attainment of that ideal  government, which is after all, the object  of all humanitarian efforts.  Mrs. Clayton makes the bald statement  that the caste system in India is bad; this  is the favorite theme with Christian missionaries to that land, who are never tired  of felling tlie people in tho West of the  degradation of that groat country and of  emphasizing that salvation alone can  come through thoir particular religion.  Wiser men of tho same church are less emphatic in thoir statements as to  this, and  are beginning to realize the fact that the  result of Christian' proselytizing in that  land during the past 50 years has not been  commensurate with the millions of pounds  which have been poured into the mission  funds having for its object the Christianizing of the so-called heathen. - So long  as the word "degradation" is mentioned  in connection with India, and; its people;  by Christians, so long as the- great cities;  .of their continent continue to wreak with ���  thefOurhi'oi:!_l'"hiiasnia ai-smgv''froni' ail  absolute degradation existing in all its  Sodom and Gomorrah hideousness, it were  wise to refrain from discussion of a matter alike impertinent and pharisean.  The Inca Socialism to whicli I made  reference.existed thousands of years before the one to which Mrs. Clayton thinks  I mentiened. Unfortunately, the information regarding it has been obtained by  superphysical methods and will consequently be rejected as being without "authority." There can be, however, no possible harm in reading it (I have an article on the subject, which I hope to pub-  blish soon) and accepting only as a dream  of ideal social conditions which were carried out for a number of years and which  brought happiness and contentment to a  vast empire, ruled over by an autocratic  emperor, and a government absolute in  its power.  Modern Socialism is bent on regenerating tlie world by way of the bullot; there  is apparently no other way of solving  iproblemsioHil"e'-tliiiu=by"packih^="parlia~  ment with Socialists with the calm assurance that personal interests would not  weigh one iota in their calculations of  good government. Does Mrs. Clayton  imagine for one moment that if the federal parliament at Ottawa was composed  of Socialists, that their rule would be  spotless under present conditions? Socialism has not so far made thc impression on  Immunity that the units of whicli it is  composed are any less greedy after tlio  personal interest than are those of any  other political faith. They aro men of  the same flesh and blood, carried away  just as much by the ruling passion of gain  as thc others are. Placed in power, with  no previous training essential to good rule,  and what is more, not to the manner born,  what kind of rulers might the masses  look for?  Thc question can be easily answered by  flu! simple statement that it would certainly be no better than at present and  with odds largely in favor of its being far  worse. Intoxicated with this power,  which even strong minds find hard to resist, they would be swept off their feet by  a tide of corruption, the outcome of a  personal scramble for the self, and we  would be present face to face with the reflection on a large scale of the story recorded in the old book of -the man who ;  was forgiven a debt and who forthwith  wanted his pound of flesh from, the man,.  " who owed ___ii."' The statement about politicians living up to'principles is nice in  print, but hardly borne out by results,  and what reason on earth is there for supposing that Socialist members would live  up to their principles any more than those  of the Liberal, Conservative or Independent parties?  Mrs. Clayton closes her criticism with  the prepostorous statement fhat the Sermon on the Mount can only be earned  out by electing Socialistic members to  parliament. She has evidently spared  herself the closer study of the tenets of  her faith, for if she wore to dive a little  beneath the surface -she'-will find this  "Cause" which will bring into effect, as  if by magic, the present ideal dream of  her cult. True socialism is after all the  incarnation of the highest conception of  the Brotherhood of Man, not in words but  in deed. From this is deduced the simple  statement that the world should be ruled  by love. If a man love his neighbor as  hiuyi^,^^_j\voiiMjloJiinuno  "forever seek his good; he would need no  law in that he would not seek to take advantage of him and his units, instead of  as at present working for themselves,  would be working for the whole aud thus  would arise the ideid of which the Socialist dreams, where liberty, equality, and  fraternity would bo erected on the sure  foundation of truth and justice.  How, then, shall this be brought about?  By the making of this brotherhood of man  a deep reality; by burning it into the  hearts of men so time tliey will be fired,  even as thoy are today with the love of  country and the desire to carry its flag to  the glory of battle victory. Then, and  then alone, will 'dawn tho true socialism,  for it will embody the genu of all religions of the world, by none more transeeiid-  ently presented than when Iho great soul  of Nazareth said "This is 1113* command-  ent, that ye love one another, even as 1  have loved you." F. AV. Pkttit.  Nelson, July 22.  the cost of refining out the silver is the same, per ton of bullion,.  whether it be rich or lean.    If  the  silver runs very low it does  not pay for refining, soit is left in the lead and virtually wasted.  A certain proportion of wet ores must  be  used as a flux, otherwise the rich dry ore in the smelter would refuse to melt.    As,  the few American wet ore mines become exhausted the Canadian,'  wet ores will become valuable as fluxes.    Bonusing the exhaus-.  tion of them now is a future as well as a present loss.    It is as*~  if the old province of Upper Canada had paid a bonus for the cut- i'~  ting and marketing of  the then valueless  white  pine  of the  northern forests.    That industry  could not then be carried on-'  without a bonus, just as the-mining of wet ores, under existing -  natural and artificial disabilities, cannot go on without aid. .Tlie-j  earlier inhabitants were wise in their own generation and wise J  in the future, in letting the northern forests remain.

AN UPHEAVAL IN STOCK EXCHANGE  GREAT EXCITEMENT OVER LOSS OF FISHERMANS RING  [Associated Press to The Evening Tribune.]  New Yohk, July 25.���The Herald's  Rome correspondent cables the following:  Every effort is being made in the Vatican  to prevent the news of a terrible scandal  leaking out. Tho ring of the fisherman,  which should have been found on the  hand of the pope, has disappeared. It is  not so much a question of its material as  of its assumed value, for the ring of the  fisherman is used to seal the papal bulls  and is the outward sign of the authority  of tlie pope. When thc cardinal camer-  lingo certifies the death of a pope, ho receives the ring of thc fisherman from the  chamberlain of the pope. It is then destroyed in the presence of tho cardinals at  the first meeting of the sacred college  held after the popo's death When cardinal Oreglia, the present cnmerlingo. had  certified to the death of Leo XIII, Mgr.  Bisteti was a prey to tho deepest despair  and had to admit the ring had disappeared. Cardinal Orcgalia, who, ns is  the custom, brought his declaration of  having received the ring from the papal  chamberlain all written out. but hnd il  put back iu his pocket. Mgr. Bisletti  can give no indication as to the robber.  The theft must have taken place between  the death of the pope and the morning of  the following day when cardinal Oregalia  officially certified to his death. During  this time a number of persons entered the  death chamber. To prevent the scandal  from becoming known outside the Vatican  the Observatore Komaueo published a  statement that Cardinal Oregalia had  duly received the ring in the presence of  the cardinals and had destroyed it at the  first meeting of the sacred college, but as  cardinal Orogalia never received the ring  it is out of the question that he could  have witnessed its destruction. The disappearance of the ring has caused a tremendous sensation nt the Vatican where  it is the sole object of conversation. In  the meantime, in Hie certificate of death  of Leo XIII all allusion to receiving the  ring has been suppressed.  At the first meeting of tho college of  cardinals after the pope's death, when the  famous ring should have been broken,  tlie ceremony was omitted and it was put  upon record that the ring, for the moment,  could not be found.  Tne fisherman's ring is known to have  been lost twice before. Once in September, 1895, the late pope was one day insistently asked for an audience by an under sen-ant, and vieldiug to curiosity he  granted it, whereupon  the servant re  stored the ring. The ring has never been  seen since, ns thc pope hid it or locked it  away unseen by anyone, so great was his  fear of losing it again. So far it has not  been discovered but the Vatican authorities assume the ring will undoubtedly be  found.

The most solemn ceremony today was the reception by the sacred col-  lego   of the whole diplomatic body ac-  ceeded to the Vatican.

Af-   .  ter this members of the diplomatic body  pressed the hands of all the cardinals and  especially congratulated cardinal Oregalia  on the .sentiments he had expressed.  [Assoeiiitcd l'ress to The Evening Tribune.]  Rome, July 25.���During the early hours  this morning the piaza of St. Peter's was  not so crowded with persons desirous of  viewing the body of pope Leo XIII as on  the two proceeding days; but before long  it became known   that   the opportunity  would cease at noon, and all those who  lmd teen waiting to the last moment hurried to tlie cathedral.  This rush produced  a heavy struggling group of humanity,  which tlie polico liad some difficulty in  handling.   Meanwhile the cafes in  the  vicinity and the vendors of postal cards  and small objects bearing Leo's likeness  were lil-orally patronized.   It seems to be  the firm conviction of many that their  children had received some benefit from  seeing the po]>e, as this morning whole  families were conducted to St. Peter's.

Conservative  party   candidates,    it   'is  likely,   will  be   nominated   on    Saturday,   August   loth,   which    will    give  them over two months iu which to 'electioneer.

"., Parties who sell refreshments, either  solid or liquid, at picnics are required under the provisions of the provincial license act, to take out either a regular  trader's license or a special license. The  fee for a trader's license is $5 for every  six months.   Such a license entitles the  ^KlQer"t6^U'inerchandise^t=a*=park"*like-=  __okanee,or any other iii the same district, for six months. The fee for a special permit to sell beer, wines or liquors for  forty-eight hours is $15; but the party  selling must have a retail liquor license in  the district in which the picnic is held.  Kokanee park, for instance, is in the Slocan license district, and applications for a  permit, to sell liquors there must be made  to the chief license inspector for Slocan  district, J. T. Black of New Denver.  Much trouble and possibly expense, and  no end of friction, will be saved if the  . .law as stated above, is observed.

The editorial was taken bodily from Geu-  esis_whercin_is__ given, a  description of  It begins to look very much as if there  would soon be "something doing" in the  Balkans. The relations between Bulgaria  and Turkey are strained to the snapping  and the fighting point. Both countries  are massing troops, and all on account of  Macedonian revolution. Bulgaria deeply  sympathizes with the aims and ideals of  the revolutionists, and is known to esteud  to them both moral and active support, in  the belief that Macedonia will not hesitate to join Bulgaria after the driving out  of the Turkish oppressor. These Balkan  revolutions and warlike demonstrations  cannot be kept up much longer without  provoking a resort to arms, the consequence of which would be almost sure to  gravely endanger the peace of all Europe.  It is often asserted that everything would  be quiet in the Balkans if the Turk could  be induced or forced to yield up Constantinople and to retire across the Bosphorus.  Judging by recent developments, however, such political optimism seems rather  unreasonable. The mongrel, racial elements on the peninsula are not built for  harmonious, friendly intercourse. They  always have been, and for many years to  Noah's flood in the early days.  Blair is astute, and having lived a long  time in New Brunswick he knows how to  look after Mr. Blair. He sees the end of  Laurier, and knows that a house with a  split in it cannot hold together, so before  the walls tumble he takes to tlie timber  and looks up another tree.  Politics have been strenuous iu Ontario  for some time past, and have called forth  remarks like this from the Manitoulin  Conservator. That paper says: "When  the angel Gabriel blows his last trumpet,  and gathers home to the Lord the souls  who have suffered in daring to do right  in the face of uiiKunnountable odds, on  that great day when all shall be justly  judged aud equally rewarded, if Bob  Gamey does not receive a whiter plume  than Boyd or Falconbridge, we confess  we would be inclined to lose our faith in  the justness of things in heaven."

If  politicians in the States can use the pulpit in their business we see nothing to  prevent the practice spreading to British  Columbia. The Rev. colonel Prior might  preach to the Anglicans a sermon on  "Why I quit." Rev.

A party of British journalists are coming to British Columbia next mouth.  Here is another chance for Nelson to get  a few columns of good stuff in the European press about our glorious country.  We should get in early nnd have these  editors stay a long time with us.  The stuff sent out from Rome by the  Associated Press to the daily press is  largely nauseous and indelicate. To send  cable messages about the color of the  pope's kidneys after death might be welcomed by allopathic surgeons but it is certainly not relished by anyone whose taste  is not morbid. The A. P. should not  waste electricity with such useless material.    Instead of helping the Grand Trunk Pacific Canada should extend the Intercolonial to the Pacific ocean. Then the people would have the pleasure of coming  west over their own road. We would all  take an interest in the prosperity of the  road and would raise no objection if the  rates were a little high. The more money  the road made the better for us all. We  would all get a dividend.  The citizens of Nelson arc extremely  tolerant.

Riblet, the well mining engineer  of Spokane and Nelson, B. C, has turned  a well-known mining device to the benefit  of the farmers of Idaho, says the Seattle  P.-I. The aerial tramway is a familiar  feature of almost every milling camp, but  it is somei hing of a novelty to see that  appliance used for hauling wheat down  tho mountain sides. Mr. Riblet, who  makes a specialty of building aerial tramways, is now constructing two above the  Clearwater, near Lewistou. Idaho. When  seen at the Northern last night, Mr.  Riblet said:  "I am now building two aerial tramways for the farmers of Lewiston, Idaho.  They are uot quite the first of their kind,  as I put two in last year in other parts of  the state, but they are still a very unusual feature of a" farming district. In  this particular place the farms nre situated far up the mountain side, and owiug  to the state of the roads it is almost impossible to get the crops to market.  "For instance, with another harvest  coming on, there is still a portion oi';last  year's crop that has not been got down  the mountain side. Hauling crops in  that vicinity is very expensive work,  especially owing to the fact that part of  the way the grain has to be hauled on  sleds and then transferred to wagons.  With the aerial tram all yon have to do  is to load the buckets, and gravity does  the rest. j  "Perhaps tho greatest mining activity  just now* is being! displayed in what is  known as the Lajrdean district, between  the head of Kootenay lake and the main  Hue of the Canadian Pacific. I am now  putting in four traniways for mines there,  the Silver Cup, ^ettie" L, Eva and Cri-  teriau Oyster. These properties are all  concentrating, and reduction plants will  soon be put in. There is also a great deal  of development work going on in the less  well known mines of the district."  The Gty Council.  At the council meeting Monday evening tho finance committee recommended  ed the payment of accounts amounting to  $1298.80; also $1250 to the Kootenay Lake  hospital. The committee stated that although the expenditure for the half year  was $7074.20 greater than the revenue, the  following amounts will be repaid by tax-  tion: Interest on debentures, $4257;  schools and maintenance $45)22.86; total,  $9279.96. The following, has been expended by the current revenue on capital  account: Sewers, $74.45; waterworks,  $116.01; electric light, $191.78; total,  $382.24; also accounts incurred in 1902 of  $2382.84. The sinking fund of $11,700  due in 1902 was designated last -January,  making a total expenditure of $23,763.04  out of current receipts, A This amount  taken from the total expenditure for six  months would leave the receipts $16,-  688.84 greater than the expenditures for  the same period. The committee was satisfied with the careful and economical  government of the city. The report was  adopted.    ���-������''-'        -'���';.  A by-law to prevent weeds from attaining a vigorous growth passed the committee of the whole, while the encouragement of shade trees and a change iu the  mode of collecting road tax was held over.

Mayor Rose and aldermen Selous aud  Hamilton were appointed a committee to  prolong the stay in Nelson of the delegates from the British Chamber of Commerce.   San Jose Scale.  The following is from a recent issue of  the News-Advertiser: "Four lots of California apples and pears arrived by the  steamer Queen Monday night and were  carefully inspected by inspector Cunningham. The apples were found to be infected with the dreaded San Jose scale  and were all condemned. The pears were  all in bad condition and were also con-  1_emued7~Thlr~en'fire shipnientr~wiirbir  either cremated or shipped to the United  States. Mr. Cunningham wishes it to be  understood by all concerned that thero  will not be the slightest relaxation of  quarantine inspection this season. On thc  contrary, the regulations of the Board of  Horticulture will be more strictly on-  forced at every port of entry in British  Columbia and special instruction will bo  sent to all the quarantine officers. Fruit  growing is attaining such proportions in  the industrial affairs of this province that  it must be protected. Iu speaking of the  Okanagan valley, Mr. Cunningham estimates that from 125 to 150 ears of the best  fruit grown in North America will be  shipped out of that one valley tlie coming  season, and the business is only in its  infancy. From present indications it is  expected that more nursery stock will be  sold and planted next season than was  ever planted in any two yours iu the  history of this province. Fruit growers  are coming to British^ Columbia by hundreds, not the least of inducements held  out to these homeseekers being tho protection which is given them by the horticultural regulations."  Spokane and Kootenay Surveyors.  The Spokane and Kootenay railway surveyors have changed their camp from  Stamped lake, near Naples to the B. M.  Peterson place three miles west of Bonner's Ferry. They are running a line  from Elmii-a through Moravia and Bonner's Ferry, paralleling the Great Northern. Tliey will next try the pass back of  the Peterson ranch. As heretofore stated  the surveyors will probably run a number of lines, finally selecting the route  that proves most economical.  The Banks of 49.  There is so much yellow in far away  camps that peoplo cannot sec it close to  home. The ground along Eagle and Forty-  Nine creeks near Nelsou is full of gold.  The Poorman is working 40 men and running a 20-stamp mill. This mine is 1500  feet deep and has been worked 14 years.  Close to it Joe Duhamel has a claim called  the Dundee,   The lead averages 18 inches  and has been stripped for 700 feet. Coarse  .gold can be panned any place on this claim.  Two tunnels have been run on the property and the quartz averages $35 of free  gold to the ton. The Dundee adjoins the  Paradise, the well-known property of  John Miles. Alex. Long has a claim  above the Paradise that is yellow with  gold, and yet Nelson people run away tithe Klondyke, never dreaming that there  is one within walking distance of their  homes. The Poorman asked Paddy Miles  $13 a ton to run his oro throngii their  stamp mill and the Hall Mines smelter offered him a rate of $7.50 a ton delivered  at Granite Siding.  Mining in Idaho.  The mines in the Coeur d'Alene lead,  but they are not as rich as those in the  Slocan. Contrast lead mining in Canada  with the appended report, aud see what a  difference an imaginary line makes:  Net profits of practically $1,500,000 were  made by the Coeur d'Alene mines during  1902. That magnificent showing is based  upon the sworn returns made by the mining companies to the county assessor of  Shoshone county, and upon it the mines  will pay their taxes. The sworn affidavits  of the mine managers and the fact that  any padding of the profits would only  mean increased taxation assure that tho  figures are conservative and reliable. The  most important thing is the discovery that  the Mammoth is now the most profitable  mine in that remarkable district. It has  a wonderfully high grade of ore, and its  net profits for 1902 were no less than  $347,386 34, That is nearly 40 per cent of  the gross value of the shipments, and the  Mammoth also takes the first rank in that  respect. The Empire State-Idaho company, operating the Tiger, Poorman and  Last Chance mines, comes next with  profits of $280,705.1 (i. The Standard, controlled by the Finch <fc Campbell interests  of Spokane, netted $271,620.37. The Hercules, the new bonanza of the district,  which has been shipping ouly crude ore,  netted about $170,000 from less than 5000  tons shipped. The Bunker Hill & Sullivan, at Wardner, has had rather a lean  streak, and its profits were only about  $68,000. The Morning, at Mullen, owned  by Larson & Greeuough, reports profits  at $111,054.18.

Finucane, acting manager, of the Bank  of Montreal in Spokane.

" The Upper Columbia valley is destined  tc be known as the "Garden Valley of the  Kootenays," in a very few years, the Outcrop verily believes and so does everyone  who knows anything about this valley.  Just now this is very evident to all. The  miles and miles of grassy slopes, deep ravines aud hilltops are literally red with  strawberries aud other wild fruit, while  iu the hundreds of gardens throughout  the valley every kind of fruit is seen  growing luxuriantly. Every year more  people are engaging in gardening and  others preparing more land for that purposo.���Wilmer Outcrop.  Tourist Travel.  The indications point to a large influx  of tourists to this province in August and  September, and Nelson should get a large  share of the trade if it is properly looked  after. Special rules have been granted by  railway companies for a number of conventions to be held on tho Pacific Coast  and these will attract many visitors, both  from Eastern Canada and the Uuited  States, a large number of whom may  reasonably be expected to spend a short  time here.

The output  of the Ymir, Wilcox, Arlington, Second Relief, Silver King,  Venus, and Granite mines, all in Nelson district, cannot be  given, as the ore is treated in mills at the mines aud oiily  the concentrates shipped to the smelters. The shipments  from Slocan mines are still small, but will rapidly increase,  as the forces at nearly all the mines are being increased.  IN THE NIGHT  Delegates from the British Chamber of Commerce. will visit  British Columbia this year, with a view of educating themselves  upon the resources of this country. They are scheduled to  reach Nelson in the night, and leave in the morning for the  Boundary, without ever getting a glimpse of Rossland. We��  fail to see much sense or benefit in such a visit. If these astute  English manipulators of trade only see Nelson in the dark from'  the rear end of a bus, and Rossland not at all, how can they  judge the merits of a district without seeing it's leading towns ?  Surely not by looking at us through a telescope from Greenwood. The Tourist Association and Board of Trade should  break away from their sleep and exercise their ability in this  matter. Everything possible should be done to show this delegation everything we have in the country, from Three Forks to  Midway. No local jealousy should be displayed, for what  benefits one town will also assist the others.

GRITS AND LEAD  The  Liberals   of  Canada  are  not  particularly progressive.  When fate placed them in power, they did not boldly proceed to  carry  out  the  platform upon which the}- had stood for 3-ears.  The}' merel}'  hopped into the protection bus, pulled down thc  blinds a little, aud  went right along the Conservative road to  fleshpots.    The Laurier government is short of brains, and we.  do  not  wonder at Tarte aud Blair quitting the fold.    It is ex-  tremel}* annoying for men with plenty of gra}' matter in their  upper stopes to be surrounded by a lot of petty minds incapable of rising above the first gauge without going to pieces.   By  one thing alone the Laurier government will curse this country  if left iu power.    That  thing  is  its  truckling to religion.    In  this it is conservative enough to suit the most zealous bigot that  ever conned a prayer.    Look at its action upon the  lead  question !    Although demanding duty upon almost everything used  in the Slocan, it  refused to place a duty upon even one of our  productions.    It was not brave enough to give us free trade or  protection 011 one article.    Either policy would suit us.    Instead  of this  it  shuffles in a bonus proposition to help the big producers of lead, and the lead manufacturers   of  Montreal, while  the Grit press gushes to the limit over Laurier's efforts to pull  the Slocan into prosperity by  a  vote-catching dodge, so thinly  veiled that even a bat could see through it in daylight. The Nelson Tribune  Bomb, July July 21.���This morning  began the first of these grnndoise and  union ceremonies which follow the demise of a pope, and although private, it  wus conducted with great pomp and was  most impressive. All the cardinals present iu Borne, numbering twenty-nine, assembled at the palace to view the remains  of the late Leo XIII aud to officially pronounce him dead. Cardinal Oreglia, dean  of the sacred college and carmelndo of the  holy Roman church, had to put aside his  cardinal robes, a.s a sigu of deep mourning, and was gowned entirely in violet,  while other cardinals wore crimson robes  with violet colors, indicative of mourning.  Within the death chamber the body lay  with a white veil over the face, surrounded by Franciscan pelitentiaries, while outside the noble guard maintained a solemn  vigil. The profound silence was only  broken by the chanting of prayers for the  dead. Into this solemn presence came  the mourning procession of cardinals,  who kneeling, silently prayed, then the  prelates reverently looked on while cardinal Oreglia approached the remains.  London, July 20.���Long biographical  sketches, memoirs, and editorials are  called forth bjr the death of the pope, aud  the English papers all team with expressions of the warmest sympathy and deep  regard on account of his simple life and  admiration for the statesmanlike qualities  displayed by him throughout his pontificate. A contrast is drawn between the  unique position that papacy now holds in  international consideration compared with  the shattered, discredited position at the  time of the death of Pius IX. His victory-  over Bismark is everywhere recalled as  c the most brilliant example of diplomatic  sagacity, and the editorials dilate upon  the successful manner in which he reconciled himself to the spirit of modern times  in dealing with France, America, and  England.  This morning's Post says: "The keys  of St. Peter that death snatched from him  aro now the symbols of a worldwide monarchy such as even Islam itself, with its  countless millions, cannot boast."  . The Daily News says: "History will  not soon forget that little frail������ white' figure who' occupied the most striking position iu the civilized world. Leo XIII will  be remembered as one of the greatest  popes ahd humblest christains.":  The Daily Telegram says: "The Catholic world mourns the loss of one of the  noblest priests, most accomplished scholars and wisest statesmen who has ever  filled St. Peter's chair."  Pakis, July 21.���The Figaro this morning in its comment on pope Leo describes  him as one of the greatest of the political  popes. It says: "Pope Leo leaves the  Roman church stronger, more alert, and  more closely allied with the life of the  people than it was under any predecessor  during the past century."  The Journal also emphasizes the late  pope's political ability, saying, " The  church still needs diplomatists, may pope  Leo's successor bo another Leo."  The Gaulias, which is published with a  ��� mourning border, contains au article by  Ferdinand Brunetioc, who declares that  pope Leo's eternal honor for history will  bo that he realized that the church's  action must be social. The Matin says,  "The pope's reign was uot sullied,by a  single word of hatred or threatening,  gesture." The Eclair and Petit Journal  both dwell especially on the efforts of  pope Leo to maintain good relations with  the French government. The former reproaching his lack of firmness and com-  bativity and the latter declaring him to  have beeu vanquished, adding that defeat  came before his death. The Soliel also  dwells on the pope's special affection for  Frauce, which it says, was so ill requitted  by the government.  Rojie, July 21.���According to a statement coining from high sources, arrangements at the Vatican aro being pushed  forward which will enable the conclave of  cardinals to hegiii__ sitting August 1st-,.  ^HoweverTit "is^uow^h"6ughT"the session  may last considerably longer than at first  expected, even long enough to permit cardinal Mora of Sydney, N.S.W., to arrive  iu time to take part in the proceedings.  An ambassador to thc Vatican says the  question of pope Leo's successor is a  peculiarly open one at the present moment. The personality of the candidates  plays a much more important part thau  in any preceding conclave, since the conditions prevailing in the past arc now entirely changed.  Formerly the sacred college was divided into' several distinct parts. There  was first that cardinals who were members of the great Roman family, nearly  every one of whicli was represented in the  election of a pope. At the present time  there is only ouo scion of the Roman  house among' the cardinals, namely, cardinal Batista Casali Deldago, who from  the standpoint, of a new pope is relatively  unimportant. Then there were parties  composed of cardinals appointed by the  same pope, who usually ranged themselves in separate bodies. In addition to  the members of the sacred college appointed by the pope who has just passed  away, there were usually considerable  able' numbers chosen to be his successor,  and eveu a new oue appointed by the pope  preceding him. In consequence of Leo  XIII's long reign these particulars eventually disappeared. In the present conclave  there will only be one cardinal, cardinal  Oreglia, who was not appointed by pope  Leo. As a result of these changes the approaching conclave will be much more  under the influence of individual candidates than in the past, rendering it impossible to forecast the election with any  degree of certainty. It is highly probable  that the uew pope will be a man at present not thought about.  Rome, July 22.���Dr. Lapponi this morning presented to cardinal Oreglia, dean of  the sacred college, the official report of the  autopsy performed yesterday on the body  of Leo XIII, which was conducted as far  as possible in connection with the embalming. The report is chiefly important  as disproving the presence of cancer of  nephritis. The text of the report is as  follows: "We began by injecting into the  thigh over five litres of special preserving  liquid. Having opened the abdomen, the  lower viscera were extracted and were  found to be perfectly helathy. The spleen  and kidneys were also absolutely normal.  In the latter, the cortical substance was  well preserved and of a pale pink color.  After opening the  thorax, it was found  that the heart, the aorta, and tho cartotid  arteries were healthy except that in the  arch of the aorta was found nn atheromatous excrescence.   Nothing unusual was  found in the pericardium.    The pleura on  the left side was quito normal, but on tho  right side the pleura was full of liquid of  au orange yellow color above and bloody  at the bottom, with a large clot of fibrine  floating.    More fibrine was on  the free  surface of the pleura towards the ribs,  with a slight scraping of fibrine easily detached,  allowing a view of the surface  serum.     Tho   upper    superior   part   of  the right lung was quite normal, but the  upper lower portion was somewhat hard  aud cracked at the touch, while in cutting  a whitish, frothy liquid oozed out.   The  inferior lobe had partly adhered to the  wall of the thorax, and when this was cut  a dirty white,  abundant liquid without  gas oozed out, showing complete hepitaza-  tion.   Afterwards the thorax was filled  witli medicated cotton and an. antiseptic  absorbing substance, after which the incision made for the examination was sewn  up aud the body put in order.   The arrangement of the face was difficult.   All  members of the august body were bandaged, as in the case of mummies, and the  bandages were smeared with au imperishable varnish.     Signed, Miseppe, Lap-  poui.''   This report was accompanied with  an anatomic diagnosis made by all doctors  participating in the  embalming, which  says there was found a round gray hepita-  zation of the right inferior  pulmonary  lobe with much pleuritic liquid of a serum  fibrine character, partly hemorrhagic, thus  confirming the clinical diagnosis.  Rome, July 23.���Today the form of Leo  XIII lay in state in the bassilia of St.  Peters, while thousands of persons from  ordinary walks of life came to pay their  last tribute of love aud veneration. Tbe  impressive ceremonies of yesterday were  viewed by only the favored few of the  nobility, aristocrats, and the highest  clergy, but today the doors were opened  to the entire public. Five minuter after  six the gates were opened and thc human  tide began to flow in.* The jam at the  narrow entrance soon became terrific,  threatening serious results to the struggling mass of half fainting women and  children. Although the crowd was not  extraordinarily large, the steady .movement into the funnel like enclosure made  the pressure terrible. Many women had  their dresses or veils torn off and some  were lifted exhausted over the wooden  enclosure and out of the crush.  this camp. H. L. Johnson, the roadmas-  ter, also came in with Mr. Ross and William Yolen Williams. A number of improvements in the trackage at the Granby  mines wero looked over and decided ou.  The Old Ironsides ore bins will have another sidetrack and the timber spur will  be lengthened. Mr. Ross went over the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder spurs where it  is proposed to finish laying the steel a distance of over 4000 feet, it being the intention to ship the ore from the dumps of  those mines���something like 8000 tons.  Mr. Ross stated that the company was  now in a better condition than for some  time to haudle the increasing ore traffic  ou the Boundary branch, both of the  powerful Shay locomotives now being on  the Phoenix ore ruu, and a third still more  powerful, being due some tim<? in September. In a short time the loop at Hartford junction, graded over a year ago,  will be placed in use, to do away with the  switchback at that point.  Kingstown, Ireland, July 21.���King  Edward and' queen Alexandria, accompanied by princess Victoria and their  suites, arrived here at five miuutes past 9  o'clock this morning, on board the royal  yacht Victoria aud Albert. Immediately  after the yacht took its position in the  harbor the salute was fired by 13 vessels  of the home fleet. A heavy rain which  had been falling since an early horn-,  ceased at 9 o'clock, the sky cleared giving  promise of flue weather for the royal entry into Dublin. Iu replying to an address here, king-Edward said he shared iu  the saduess of multitudes of his subjects  over the news of the pope's death. The  king added that his visit came at a time  when a uew era is opening for Ireland.

The filial  loss and unlimited veneration which during his life time I felt for the holy father,  follow into eternity the exalted, whoso  memory is blessed for all time, and who  will ever occupy a distinguished place in  the annals of our holy church."  St. Paul, July 21.���A girl, an assistant  in the laboratory of the state board of  health, is recovering from au attack of  glanders. She became infected more thau  a year ago. Three cases of glanders  among human beings have occurred recently in this state. Two brothers died  from the effects of them, having taken it  from horses owued by one of them.

That this convention reaffirms the policy of  the party in matters of provincial roads and  trails; the ownership and control of railways  and the development of the agricultural resources of the province as laid down in the platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as follows:  " To actively aid in the construction of trails  throughout the undeveloped portions of theprovince und the building of provincial trunk roads  of public necessity.  " To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so fur as tne circumstances  of thu province will admit, and the adoption of  thc principle that no bonus should be granted to  any railway company which does not give the  government of the province control of rates over  lines bonused, together with the option of purchase.

That to encourage ths mining industry, the  taxation of metalliferous mines should be on the  basis of a percentage on th'e net profits.  4. That the government ownership of telephone systems should be brought about as a first  step in the acquisition of public utilities..  5. That a portion.of every coal area hereafter  to be disposed of should ba reserved from sale or  lease, so that state owned [mines may be easily  accessible, if their operation becomes necessary  or advisable.  6. That in the. pulp Jwd leases provision  should be made for reforesting and that steps  should be taken for the general preservation of  forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber, j  7 That the legislature and government of the  province should persevere in the effort to secure  the exclusion of Asiatic lalor.  8.

Mr. Hawthornwaite had a most respectful hearing, because he had an intelligent audience that  was searching for knowledge.

This property is owned by McKay Bros.  ��& Strutt, and is one from which great  things 'are' looked for by everyone familiar  with the'"group. At a point where the  strike was made gold is freely disseminated through the quartz in visible quantities and the ledge averages from four to  six feet in width.

The  ore lies between two well defined walls of  lime aud porphory and gives every indication of permanence. L. A. Smiths of An  nconda and George Andrews own the  property.    J. R. Bottorff, secretary to the Elwood  Tinworkers Gold Mining Company, who  are operating the Copper Dollar, ou Fish  creek, is arranging to bring an excursion  to Revelstoke and through the Fish creek  country next month.  About two miles from the Gordon two  Frenchmen are working a gold-silver prospect, assays from whicli show that the ore  carries $12 gold, 14 ounces silver, and 40  per cent in lead.  Au expert left New York this week on  his way to Kootenay, for the purpose of  looking into Hie advantages of building ii  lead .smelter on the shores of Kooteimv  lnke.    Herb Porter has leased the Nome Fraction, Ymir, from the Atlin company. II  is from this fraction that the recent 'shipment, of ��2'.) ore wa.s made.  states that he and some of those he represents will soon visit the Anderson lake  mines, and if all goes as is anticipated,  the final deal for these properties will be  completed.  The Boston capitalists have already expended more than $20,000 on the proper- *  ties, and will 6ecure a 60 per cent, iteerest ���  by the erection of a large mill and the  payment of about $60,000.���Sentinel.  �������� ���   ���    ������ ������ f  The Frank Slide.  Further investigation by Frank residents reveal the following interesting 'in, >.  formation:   The  gap  in  the mountain  where the slide took place, was 4,048 >feet"'-i  wide, and cut 1000 feet back from the  "'  face of the mountoin.   The peak was 4200 'V,  feet high, perpendicular from the- river _��  bed.   Part of the top of the peak was"car-\v>  ried over two miles away from the base of'<:���;��  the mountain, and is there jnst as it-slid4f<  down, with moss and small trees covermg4s  it.   It measures 300 feet in circumference Vv  mid is 50 feet high.   The debris-fills thejS  valley \% miles long and 2 miles vriiSo.vS.  On its way it cut off a mountain /of sblid>2d  rock 300 feet high, and rose'400 feet _ugIT&  onthe opposite side of the valley; and���v  such was its force  and weight  that- it *vi  scooped the river down to bedrock forcing! ,\  the water before it up several  hundred -<.  feet on the opposite side of the valley,    -  leaving the lakes thus formed, one a mile* "  and the other a mile and a hal^ from the  original river. , ��' --  Gray's Creek.

This^.i  group is owned by G. B. McMillan* and'^'j  Robert Robinson.   Blakemore says that7-  these properties have the finest surface >?J  showing he has ever seen of ironore. Thev!  lead is eight feet wide, and half of this'*7*  carries clean specular hematite, running"*"^  over 60 per cent, while the balance of- the*;  lead runs 40 per cent.   The ore carries' a' ;  little gold about $2.50 to the ton.   A tnn-v ,  nel is now being run to tap the lead 50^Vd  feet  from  the  surface.

At this point the concentrating  oro   of  both properties will be",  treated.  There must be now fully 120 men engaged on the Nettie L. and Silver Cup,  and the work is going forward for the development and equipment of these two  properties. From all appearances more,  men could be put on if they were available. Axemen axe most in request, as the  clearing of the rights of way involves the  removal of a deal of heavy forest growth.  The Sunshine tunnel is now in some  025 feet and will be driven another 500  feet at least before the Silver Cup lead is  intersected at a vertical depth of 500 feet  from the surface, or 300 feet below the  lowest present workings.

So far about ten cars of ore have been  shipped from the dump of the Morrison  mine, Deadwood cam]), to the Mother  Lode smelter. It is expected that about  1000 tons will be shipped altogether.
