On   Thursday  last,   March
to, the  Dominion  parliament
opened, probably  for a short
and unimportant session, as itis likely the onlv business trail-
sacted will be the passing of,
the   amended   Grand   Trunk1
Pacific contract.    11 is just possible the bill to provide for the
establishment of a Canadian
navy may be   introduced   by
the Minister of   Mamies and;

ment's attention at the present j
time.

HEAD OFFICE:   TORONTO.
The Athelstan Mine,
Phoenix, B, C, March 5.-
Thi.- week a cleanup of the ore
gotten out has been made at |
the Athelstan mine, where work
htm heen temporarily discontinued. The Athelstan syndicate
is arranging to form a joint
stock company t" take over the
Athektau-Jackpot group in
Wellington camp, and it is understood that work and "hip
mentis will be resumed again by
the. first of April. It is ahout
this date that the Montreal <a
Boston Copper company's smel- •
ter at Boundary Fulls is expected to resume operations.
On tlif Don Pedro claim, ono
of the Lake group lieing operated by the Chicago-British Columbia Mining company, the
contractors, for 100 f&ft of sinking, have attained a depth of
GO feet, the shaft being well
timbered and the sinking being
on high grade ore.
In the case of the Bank of!
Montreal against the Winnipeg]
Mines, Ltd.. the think, having;
secured a stay of proceedings!
recently to prevent the sale atj
the mine aud assets for mech-i
anics'liens, the hearing will be!
held in the supreme court at'
Victoria early in April.
From Midway to Pentieton.
From what is believed to be
good authority it is learned that
the intention is during the coming open season to extend the
railway west from Midway to
Pentiction. A Greenwood company is the owner of a charter
covering that route but there
is a provision in the instrument
which it is desired to have
changed and it will be brought
bofore the present parliament
for amendment. The charter
provides that the road shall
never be sold or leased to the
Canadian Pacific railway. The
Greenwood people desire, when:
the road shall have been completed, that it shall be leased to
the Canadian Pacific railway.
It is alleged by them that the
road can be operated profitably
only by the Canadian Pacific.
as it is the only railroad that
for some time to come woidd
have connection with the proposed line. It is said, too, if
parliament will ammend the
charter, as desired, that the
work of construction will be
commenced immediately thereafter.
Such a road would open up a
splendid country to the west of
Midway and as far as Okanagan
lake. This country has some
promising mines, excellent timber and. here and there in the
valley*, fine grazing and farm-
in,' land.—Xc!«on News.
