Il is thought probable tldit. a new

the lineage nf King Edward, There is
lm precedent, however. In guide the
Canadian authorities in a matter of
this kind. The late Queen succeeded
tn the t hi niu in 18,'o, but, it was nnt
until 1810 thut. the first postage stamp
was adopted. Prior to that date, and
indited, until n much later period, a
certain fixed sum was paid for the car
riageof a letii'i', untl lhe amount was
stumped by the postmaster on the en
velnpes. The likelihood is that a new

Immediately, but that they will not
cuine into general use until the bulk of
the stamps at present in slock have
been dis'iofflkl of. A new coinage issue
for Canada may also be required, but
it is not, yet possible to suy what actum will be taken in this regard, as the
point has nnt yet been considered by
tbe authorities.
The winning of the world's hockey
championship by the Victorias of
Winnipeg, against the Shamrocks of
Mniitri'iil, is another laurel for the
West. The West now holds the world's
championship for hockey and lacrosse,
the latter distinction having lieen
brought tu British Columbia, lasl sum
mer, liy the New Westminster lacrosse
team, when they su easily defeated all
the crack teams of i he East. The fact
that these championships have heen
won by teams picked from thr sparsely
populated districts of the wesl, speaks
volumes for-the hoys, who, by their
superior activity and powers of eudur
mice, have (•fought honor to Manitoba
and British Columbia, Nnl ouly does
the West now boast of these championships but it looks as if the honors
were not likely to lie shifted soon,,if
tbeir easy victories In thu Kast account
for any thing, and although the Easterners met with such dismal defeats, I
l hey are not. to be ridiculed. They did
their liest, and the Westerners' remarkable achievements ure nut due to
nny waul of competency on the part
of the Eastern players. They were
all gnod men but the Western teams
were just a little better, Tbey Were
all artists at the respective gullies, so
tlie defeated Easterners have the satisfaction of knowing that they were not
defeated hy any amateurs but by skilled Westerners, and they should be
contented that their fate was not more

done hy the company.
The crosscut is in 45 feet, and it is
still ahout 201 feet from the hanging
wall, where all the liest values were
found nearer the surface, The ore is
reported to run fiom 3 tn 4 per cent
copper und is said to lie showing slow
but steady improvement.
The Lone Star and Washington, the
company's two churns, were flrst de
veloped lo a depth uf about 100 feet on
the hanging Wall side, where some ore
of excellent grade wus found. It wns
determined m sink a working shaft,
however, anil the old shaft, was abandoned and a vert ical shaft started some
distance, away, near the footwall,
where but slight values had been
fotttid. About iwo and a half months
ago, when the new shaft was down 278
feet, the work was placed in charge of
Roy H.-Clarke. Mr. Clarke sank an
additional 102 feet and started cross-
cutting toward the hanging wall on
the 360 foot level, This crosscut has
been in the ledge for some time and
values are just beginning to appear.
All the high grade shoots found elsewhere were on tbe other side of the
ledge, so that it may he some distance
yet before high grade ore is reached,
though the finding of values so soon is
considered a most favorable indication.
In view of the showing made the
company has decided to put in a machine drill at once, using the compressor already on the ground, but which
hus never been operated, Crosscut-
ting will thus he pushed forward wilh
all speed.

Ambitious Canada.
A Toronto press despatch states that
the Dominion government has practically taken steps tn purchase the telegraph systems of Canada, extend them
enormously and operate them in connection with ihc^Mistofllre department.
It is ulsu seriously proposed I o follow
a similar course wilh the telephone,
tint in the case of the latter municipalities will be licensed, us in great Brit
nin, to operate the system within their
own mens.
The queel ion of absolute control of
the Canadian telegraphic service bus
long; been discussed, but nut. until tin-
present liberal government caiiie into
office bus it lieen possible to talk purchase. With a surplus running from
#0,000,000 ti 1*7,000,000 for 100102, the
plan seems feasible.
The greal desire of Canadian states-
mon is lo see cables owned by Great
Britain under ihe Atlantic and Pacific
joined al each ocean to wires owned
by the Dominiou, crossing the country
and thus practically girdling lhe globe
b}' a cable absolutely under imperial
control. Tbe business men of Canuda

B. B. Osier, K. C, who is known as
the .greatest criminal lawyer in the

was about to leave Toronto for Lon

hours. He was iienring the nge of 00
years and had followed the legal pro-
fession for over thirty years. He was
horn in England and received bis advanced training in law in the liest, universities of Imth France and his native
land. He has figured in some of the
most famous criminal cases ever held
in the courts of the Dominion. Mr.
Osier pleaded for the orown in the fa

and also in the well known Bin-hull

A largely attended meet ing of larcosse

0.. L. Thoinet hut, just returned from
overseeing the work that was being
done on the Elkhorn, his well-known
property which is situate on Ilotindui)
Oreek, aliout nine miles from Midway.
But litlle work has heen done ou this
property since tbe spring uf 18B8. when
it was bowled tu the Hpokane Falls ft
Northern Mining Co., W. T. Smith
lieing the company's representative iu
the district, and it was be who super-
Intended the work at lhat lime. When
the company bonded the pro|ierty an
incline shaft hud been run a short distance and a ledge of rich ore had been
encountered that gave aaaays of $48 in
gold and over 1,100 oz. of silver lo the
ton. So rich was the ore that tbe
shaft was kept locked when the men
were not on shift to prevent samples
heing taken away.
Only a small force nf men were employed and progress waa very slow,
and at the time thu 60-day option,
which the company had on the property, had expired the shaft was only
down almut 80 feet, and although the
ledge bad narrowed considerably in
sinking to that depth, the compuny
were willing to continue work if an
extension of time were given in which
to obtain money to make the balance
of the payments, hut aa this was not
given and as the money was nol forthcoming, the company was obliged to
abandon the properly after making a
substantial cash payment.
The fact that the property was bond
ed as far hack aa 1803, when the country was so comparatively new, is proof
tbat tbe Elkhorn was considered of
great value and that there must have
lieen good Indications of it becoming a
mine, otherwise it never would have
attracted the attention of experts al
lhat time, and tbe company having
the option on It must have had good
faith in its future nr they would have
thrown up the bond when the ledge
began to pinch out.
The work on Ihe property consists of
a tunnel hi feet lung, wbich runs into ii
ledge of quartz containing free milling
gold and native silver, but as no assays
bave been made from ibis ledge the
exact value of thc ore cannot be given.
But It is in the bottom of the incline
shaft, which is down 35 feet, tbat tbe
highest grade ore has been found, nnd
tbe ledge, wbich nearly pinched out in
doing the work by tlie Spokane Falls
ft Northern Mining company iu 1KM,
has increased to 111 feet in width and
the ore looks equal to any that has
ever been taken out of the mine.
With tbe opening of spring Mr. Thoinet will put a force of men at work and
will commence shipping ore to the
A Railroad for Republic.
His stated that the settlement of
damage claims ou land allotments
along the line ot tbe Great Northern's
surveyed Wenatchee route to Republic
is to commence on February 15.
If '.his he true the commencement of
construction of tbe road is probably
not far distant, as the settlement of
these claims means the expenditure of
a considerable sum, which would not
likely be undertaken if plans for tbe
building of the road were not well matured.
It is well known that surveys for
definite location of the road and the
maps of Indian allotments and other
private lands along the entire route
from Wenatchee to Republic have
been completed and the latter filed,
Moat of th/papers have been filed at
Ihe land office at Waterville. Duplicate copies of all maps ot Indian allotments are filed with tbe Indian department at Washington and tbe settlement of damages it made through tbe
It ts said that a representative of Ihe
Indian department and one of the railroad will be on tbe ground hy February 15 and that the settlement and
payment of the claims for damages
will be put through as fast as possible.
Procrastination is the thief of time.
Do not put off until to-morrow what
you can do to-day. Now that times
are improving throughout the Boundary Country in general, and in Midway
in particular, the number of lot sales is
daily increasing, and not only will the
prices soon go up, but the most desirable locations will be disposed of. Invest
