A teport of the third annual meeting or the Canadian Korea! ry Associ-

Among other things it contains a well
written paper on the preservation of
our forests, by J. K. Anderson, Deputy Minl«terofAgrlciillureforth» province, whicli we here produce in pait:
"Let me Hrst try and picture to you

New Manager for Le Rol No. a.
Rowland, Nov. 18 —The much ru
united amalgamation of thetwo LeRois
i« as far off use. ers in fart It Is hn .
practically a certainty that the two
mines will lie operated separately, ss
he, etnfore. Within i h» next few dnys
Mr. AlWrt Hill, a relative of lhe ex-
chairman of Ihe Le Roi company, will
arrive here to arrange many mailers
affecting the Le Roi No. 2. but il is hy
nn means a certainly Ihal he will re
main aa manager nf the mine. It is
difficult to say just who will he placed
in permanent charge, hut there is some
probability thnt lhe advice of manager
MrKemieof lhe Le Roi will lie sought.
with a view tn straightening nnl the
affairs nf the Nn. 2. The reason for
this Islha! Mr, McK mile enjovs imt
only the confidence of th" F.ngllsh
shareholders of the No. 2 and the B.
C. market In London, but also of a
very large majority of the people of
this camp.
Mr. Hill will he a busy ilian when
he arrives here, for there ia in neb
lhat requires his careful attention.
The question of satisfactory smeltei
rslea la Ihe chief matter nf Importance
affecting the mine, This, in itself, will
require delicate handling, as th» Le
Rol No. 2. not owning a smeller, is
heavily handicapped in the economical
treatment nf ita product. Thr No. 2
has many thousands nf dollars In lis
tramway, earned from heavy ship
ments fnr the last six months. It Is
therefore within the scope of |iossibll
ity that the company may erect Ils
own reduction works, if a satisfactory
treatment rale Is unobtainable at
either tha Northport nr  frail.
The belief is general that hut, little
lime will elapse between Mr. Hill's arrival and the resumption of work at
the Le Roi No.2 on a v«ry extensive
srale. Even supposing that the mine
is not. provided, with a market for l'g
ore for some time to come a larre
force of men will have tn he put to
work In continue lhe development of
the lower levels. Messrs Macdonald
and Thompson will no! remain in the
camp. Mi. Thompson has stated lhat
he intends tn locale in Hpokane as soon
as he can wind up his affairs here.
This wiH neresadat. his resignation
from the Rnssiand Kootenay manage
menl, as well as the L* Rol No, 2. Mr,
Macdonald has already moved to Spokane.
Interesting Stage In Hinckley Case.
An interesting stage his lieen reached In the action of the Fidelity Casualty company of New York versus CA.
Hinckley, otherwise known as 0, 8.
Morris, the man who absconded from
New York 10 years ago with $00,000
belonging tn the West Side National
liankof the metropolis. The matter
became a cause celehre through the
efforts of the United States author!t
lea to aecure Morris' arrest and punishment, He escaped acott free, howevei,
the extradition arrangements not applying to his raae. The alt mil Ion developed at lhat time resulted In
amendments to the extradition act
whereby similar offences were made
exlrodltahle. Morris lived in Toronto,
Ra! Portage and latterly In the
Boundary, where he»peculate! In tt_»l*
estate and mining proper! y.
The Fidelity Casualty company
went on hia I Kinds for 112,000 nnd having lieen compelled to deliver this aum
tothe West Side bank entered an action to recover the amount with 10
years' interest from Hinckley, which
la I he name adopted by Morris under
the British flag. The case has been
proceeding for several months, hut action Is now suspended pending a settlement whereby It Is stated the guarantee company will secure the full
amuuut of its claim.

At the nines.
Some Oil men are now employed at

ore shipments are being maintained at
tbe rate of two or three cars a day.
Besides keeping up a regular oul put

According to Max O'Kell the British
am lbs freest people in the world. He
has travelled and observed a good
deal nnd his opinion curries great
weight, but if George Washington is
still interested in stieh manors, be
could prohahly give good reasons for
differing from him. The British
people are proud nf the freedom they
enjoy, and arc entirely in accord with
Mnx'O'Rell in regard to it, but many
no doubt, think that !_■• 1'lessingp nf
freedom, like those of wealth, could

President Roosevelt seems to be the
lion nf the hour in both hemispheres,
yet that gentleman though ha leads
the strenuous life he advocates, has
only done his duty faithfully, and, in
this respect, does not excel his nuiny

though great events might nuke him

Au American in England recently snid
that he was so popular in England that,
if that country were a republic, he
could lie elected president. What has
he done for England that, he shoulil he
either popular or unpopular!1 Why
should he nnt lie treated with respectful indifference!1 Immediately after
the deaih of the late President Mi Kin
ley, be declared be would carry oul,
as nearly as possible, Mr. McKinley's
policy. Mr. McKinley's policy us ex
pressed by his commissioners in the
Alaska Boundaiy question was that
the United Stales would nnt consent
to submit the matters in dispute in arbitration, unless it were stipnlsled beforehand that territory already occupied by American citizens should In
any event belong to lhe United Stales.
Seven years ago the Venezuela
boundary dispute came to a head.
Lord Salisbury refused at Hrst to arbitrate tbe question because he
believed the Hritish claims
were indisputable j whereupon President Cleveland threatened war unless
Oreat Britain yielded to the demands
of fhe United Slates. Lord Salisbury
yielded, though it must hive heen n
bitter pill for the sturdy Briton to
swallow, President Cleveland Inui no
right to assume that. Oreat Britain was
encroaching upon the territory of
Venezuela. Thai he was not in a
position to ussuuie it, was clearly
proved by his own actions; for afler
his warlike niesssge he appointed a
commission to enquire Into the matter. Itis extremely don III ful if the
Monroe doctrine were intended toapply io a mere boiindin y dispute. How
the mutter was finally settled is well
known. There are reasons for be
li-ving lhat the United Slides will ud
hew io the strong stand they have
taken on the Alaska Boundary qiii-s-
ton, though their actious are not eon-
aietent to aay the least. The relations
of the two people are cordiul, Hntl they
are bound together by many ties.
The inhabitants of both cnunlries,
except a few lire enters, do not want
war, aud would look upon it as a dire
calamity, lt is, therefore, the hound

That the Rio Grande Route is the

Second, the daily personally con-

Shallenlierger has a lease of the property and an option on a controlling in

sunk a prospect shaft to a depth of
aliout DU feet some time ago between
croppings thai appeared to indicate
the occurrence nf two veins running
-Mt-allel at ahoul 80 feet apart. A
cross-cut cut one of these at the 80
foot level at alaiut HO feet from the
-haft, A crosscut, started in the other
direction at the 50 foot level should encounter the other vein at alaiut 80 feet
from the shaft. A drift run 75 feet
on the lead already cut shows it to he
a liig vein with a quarts gangue, having a paystreak of alaiut twelve inches
of good ore, Some 80 feet ahead of j
the face of this drift, which runs into
the hill and sn gives greater depth as
it grts farther in, there is what on the

The schooi where thorough work is done; where the reason
is always given; where confidence is developed; where Book-
KEEi'iNt; is taught exactly as books are being kept in business ;
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is at its
best; where merit is the standard; where the training in Civil Skkvick, Tklegkai'HV, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them how to be
successful. No argument is so eloquent as the record of
things well done. No mortgage can corrupt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done for
others is it better to trust to luck? I.s it wiser to guess?
