cnlly proceeded with lire good, tha!
ibe pioperty will ultimately yield a
laige return to shareholders. To reach
the proposed level mean., sinking be
tween 300 and 400 feet beyond present
development. The Quilp mine, lying
a little further up stream lhan your
property, Ims found a very valuable
ore body by ibus sinking below water
level. Mines in nther camps have under similar circumstances developed
ore bodies nt exceptional value.

the shareholders are prepared to take
up promptly the $75,000 of bunds on

Tbe annual statement of Canadian
trade for the Inst fiscal year, just is
sued hy Ihe customs department, is
quite satisfactory. After the extraordinary growth of the past few years
Canadians would not have been surprised to see the figures remain stationary for a year or bo ; or, perhaps,
even recede. On tlie contrary there
has been a considerable increase, the
nggregat/i trade of the Dominion rising
from $881,620,286 in 1900 Id $8S0,00H,-
153 in 10(11, au increase of $5,882,887.
If Ihe t-ompina ion had lieen made on
the same basis as last year the Increase
would have been over eleven millions.
Satisfactory features of the report are
those showing a slight increase in lhe
dutiable goods imported from Great
Britain and a slight decrease in the
dutiable goods brought in from the
United Slates. Under i lie influence of
the preferential tariff the current of
trade ft out Great Britain to Canada is
gradually gaining in strength, The
increase in duty collected during the
yehr was $215,879. On the whole Canada bus every right to be satisfied wiih
the showing mad...
The Silvertonian, of Silverlnn, has
suspended publication. The publishers,
the Matheson Bios said in llm Insl
issue that the acl of suspension was
necessary as iliose of its renders who
had noted the dwindling amount nf
adveitising pilronngo bestowed upon
the paper would realize. It wasfurther
stated thnt the Silvertonian has been a
losing prnpnB.fi.lon for ils publishers
for many months past and the end of
their suing had been reached. Then
they say : "During our four years in
Silvei ton we have done all that lay in
our power to advance Ihe inteiest of
the community ; we have taken part
in the occasional lights that come our
way, neither seeking or avoiding them,
and al.vays in a fair and open manner.
While we have made enemies in this
Wny, we flutter ourselves thai we have
made many more friends, and that the
Silvertonian has been a welcome weekly visitor to ninny homes," The paper
is not dead, but only suspended fnr a
time, for in conclusion the announcement says: "When Silverlon feels
the effect of the return lo prosperity,
which is certain in the not far distant
future. The Silverlonian will he revived. Thanking our friends for the
pasl patronage we remain, etc," The
publishers of the Silvertonian were
deserving of success as Ihey struggled
hard io ke p the paper going, and got
oui n i light newsy sheet. It is sin-
ii-re.y hoped that the lime may not be
long before the Silvertonian resumes

Ottawa, Sept. 14,-The regulations
governing the granting of yearly II-
ci rises and permits to cut timber iu
Manitoba, the Northwest Territory
and the railway hell In the province of
British Columbia were amended some
time ago so us to permit the owners of
timber berths in the railway belt to
sell tbe timber thereon to aiill owners,
Ihe regulations having previously pro
vided that the timber must be manufactured at the sawmill of the licensee
to lie operated in conned ion wilh the
berth, There is therefore no pinvision
in tlm regulations as they exist at
present to prevent Ihe exportation of
logs cut on Dominion lauds in the railway hell of the province of British
Columbia, The minister therefore
recommends that the regulations be
again amended so as to provide that
all timber cut on berths in Ihe railway
belt in British Columbia shall be manufactured within liie limits of lhe
An oilier has been issued by Ihe ens
loins department providing that in fu
lure tourists' bicycles brought illlo
Canada by members nf the league of
American Wheelmen will be subject

iheir bicycles without making adepos
it has been withdrawn. They will
have to deposit the amount uf the duty
the same as oilier lourists, subject,
linn ever, to n refund within six months
if the bicycles are exported. The rea

Preparations Being Made to Receive
Second Furnace.
Two months ago the B, C. Copper
Company ordered from the Allis-
diamine Cumpauy a second furnace
for its smeller at Greenwood, and a
contract was entered into for its immediate manufacture and delivery
during the present month, lt is noi
unlikely that the labor difflcullies
manufacture^ hail to contend against
during the past few weeks will huve
somewhat delayed construction of the
furnace, but the necessary prepare'
I ions lor its erection at the smelter
have been made in the expectation thai
tlie manufacturers would be able io
complete il within the lime arranged.
Whenever it shall Is. received at lhe
works there will he no delay In setting
it up and starling it in operation,       [
Wiih lhe addition of more smelting
facilities comes the necessity for increased ore storage aciouiiiiodation
and olher conveniences for handling
don hie the quantity nf one heretofore
I rented at tlie smelter. In anticipation
of these needs Mr. Paul Johnson, manager of the simitar, has planned additions to I he ore bins, another railway
track over Hie ore bins and nther improvements, and to protect the ores in
the bins from snow and consequent
freezing solid, to roof over the upper
bins, the tramway to the sampling
mill, and the new bins and tracks
aliout to lie put in. The lower bins
nre already roofed over, and similar
protection to other parts nf the works
at present exposed to the weather will
guatd against any delay, otherwise
possible during the whiter inonlhs.
Tlie additions nnd improvements
now in hand will involve nn expenditure of about $12,000, and will require
in their construction besides other
material, somewhere about 400,000 feet
of lumber. Orders have already been
placed with ilie Y'ale Columbia Lumber
Company, Oreenwood, and Lequime A
Powers, Midway, to each supply one
car of lumber daily until all needed
shall have lieen delivered. The carpenters will heat woik on these enlargements next, week and mutters con*
nected therewith will be pushed, so
that ihe work may be completed liy
be time the now Hies.
The new bins will he similarly com
strncied to lhe existing ones, viz.,
framed by 12x12 sawn timbers and
lined with 3x12 planking. Tlmy will
add to the capacity of the lower bins
soinn 5,000 Ions, making a total slot-
age capacity of these bins about 11,000
tons, Tlm upper bins will hold about
3,000 Ions and the Inns in the sampler
about 1,000 tons, so that witli the additional accommodation now being
provided llm smelter will have ore bin
, icoiiiiiiodiition to tlie extent of about
15,(XK) tons. Tlie increasing custom
business the works are doing make it
necessary lhat there shall be plenty of
bins, so as to allow of the ores being
kept separate until they aro sent to
tlie furnace.

It is only a question of a short time
until that portion of the CoastKooten-
ay Railway fromXudew to Midway
will be constructed. Tliis line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to tlie different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this

Hu Been Taken to Phoenix and Will
Be Used In Hauling Ore to the
Oreenwood Smelter.
Thu Shay engine, which has been
undergoing repairs at the G. k W.
shops, has been sent to Phoenix
and will lie engaged in hauling ore
from the Phoenix mines to the Oreenwood smeller. The engine has hewi in
use between Trail and Rossland for
some time.
It was with a view to increasing the
loud uf empties that could be hauled
up Ihe mountain at one trip that the
Canadian Pacific purchased this engine. It is known as the Shay locomotive, and is so called after its inventor.
It was built at Lima, Ohio, and has
been in operation on the Canadian
Pacific road since last fall. The locomotive is cairiud on twn 4-wheeled
Irucks, one beneath the front end of
tbe hoiler, and the other beneath the
roal pocket, which is located immediately to the rear of the cab, Tbe water tender is carried nn a single truck,
and serves merely for carrying water,
for which it has a capacity of 2,IKJ0 gallons. The coal-ltox has a capacity of 6
tons. In place of the customary two
cylinders beneath the Hinoke-liox, working diiect upon the drivers, ihe engine
consists of three high pressure cylin
tiers, IS inches diameter by 17 inches
stroke, which are carried upon the
right hand side of the boiler nt the
front end of the cab, and are arranged
vertically above a longitudinal driving
shaft which extends the full length of
the engine. This driving shaft, which
is A inches in diameter, is arranged in
sections, with two universal couplings
hetween each of the three trucks, the
arrangements being such as to give the
Irucks full flexibility for taking the
curves. The flexibility, indeed, is such
thal.the locomotive can round withease
much sharper curves lhan with the
ordinary type, and it is claimed it is
less liable to derailment. The wheels
are all utilized as drivers. They are 40
inches in diameter, Ihe width of the
tiie, including the flange, being 8
The total weight of the locomotive,
when iu working order, is 112 tonsil weight which is only exceeded hy a
few of the latest locomotives built for
the ure carrying railroads of lhe East,
Results of operation show that, as the
result of her whclc weight heing available for adhesion, and of lite advantage gained by lieing geared down in
the ratio of '2 to I, this locomotive will
haul aliout twice the load that can he
hauled by tbe ordinary "tonsollda* ions"
of Ihe toad. The speed, of course, is
low on a grade of such a heavy elm racier, the average rate, with a full load,
un a 4 per rent grade, being about .IU
mile, uu hour.
The Yukon Telegraph.
(Continued from page 1.)
The main storage electrical batteries
on the line are stationed as follows:
Dawson, 400 jar battery ; Selkirk, 175
jars i Bennett, 250; Telegraph creek,
101); Atlin, 100; Haileton, 160; Port
Simpson, 100; Qnesnel, ISO. Repeaters
are fitted at the Ashcroft, Hazelton
aud Atlin stations, and at every refuge
station a special line-tapping equipment is provided to enable quick temporary repairs lo be made.
The gap between tbe north and south
ends of the line is now almut lift een
miles, and Mr. Charleson expects to
jeceive the Hrst through message about
September 15 or 18. The rate to Dawson at the present time, via steamer to
Skagway and over the White Pass line
to Bennett, is 94; $8 Dominion government charge, 75 cents White Pass railway charge, 25 cents steamer charge.
When the wire is completed it is hardly probable that this rate will be increased.
Buy to Criticise.
Il is easy to sit in the sunshine
And talk to the man in the shade.
It is easy to float in a well-trimmed
And point out the places to wade.
But once we pass into the shadnws,
We murmur and fret and frown,
And our lenglh from the bank, we
shout for a plank,
Or throw up our hands and go down.
It is easy to sit in your carriage
And counsel lbe man on foot;
But get down and walk and you'll
change your talk,
As you feel the peg in your boot,
It is easy to tell the toiler
How best he ran carry his park ;
But no one call rate a burden's weight
Until it has been on his back.
The up curled mouth of pleasure
Can preach of sorrow's worth ;
But give it a sip, and a dryer lip
Was never made on earth.
