The proposal to nationalize the telegraph systems of iheDoniinion is meeting with great favor throughout I he
country. It is clearly recognised that
Ihe telegraph comes within the scope
of the Postofflce depart ment, and that
the government should monopolise Ihe
delivery of all letters, whether they
are sent by telegraph or mail. We
believe the roitnlry is prepared to
sanction the purchase by the govern
ment of the telegraph lines of the
country. Under government operation
telegraph charges could be reduced hy
3(1 Der cent., and the service would still
he self-supporting. The elimination of
competition, the use of government
huildings already erected, and olher
economies rendered possihle by the
transfer of the services to the govern
ment, would justify such a reduction
at once, It looks now as if the nationalization of the telegraph systems of
Canada is within sight.— Toronto

Just as often as an American Com
pany asks for a charter lo build a
railway into Canadian territory, just,
so often appear ulaitiling articles mid
Interviews setting forth various dan
gers such railway connections would
be to the commercial interests of Can
ada. These dangers are, of course, as
seen by those whose individual interests would not he benefitted by add!
lional railway facilities and are, therefore, hypothetical as far as the interests
ut Canada, or more especially this Pro
vince, are concerned. Such articles
are generally written by people that
have only their own welfare at heart
and would do anything to belter their
condition if it. meant ruination to the
country. Every thinking man knows
full well Ihal British Colunihia requires more and better railway facili
ties. Then why should any reliahle
company anxious to supply what is
needed in this line he shut off from the
privilege of building a line of i -vil way,
especially so when not. a dollar is
asked of the eoutiiry to h«lp huild it.
Canada has already erred iu this way
when it. refused io grunt a chattel' to
Ihe Kettle River Valley Kailway and
it is to be hoped I bal the ei ior will not
be repeated. At Hie time D. C. Cor
bin was seeking ji charter to build into   Oaiiit«li.n»   lp»-i it»».y,   ,.   ui.oilae  any
was Hindi; to that at the present time,
the commercial interests of Canada
were going to suffer by Ibe building of
a foreign road, and when the application was made before the House at
Ottawa it was thrown out and the
people of British Columbia had to
suffer in order to satisfy a few selfish
individuals, T'he reason now advanced
by those who are trying to keep the
country hack by preventing railway
competition is that Hill, if granted ihe
charier for his road, will lake the hulk
of the coal from the Crow's Nest coal
fields into ihe United Slates and that
Canadian interests will suffer on account of n shortageof this commodity
Now is this reason any reason at all P
All reports unite in pronouncing the
coalfields of British Columbia amongst
the most extensive aud the mosl easily
mined nn the continentr They ate
said to have an area hf at least 275,000
acres. With sufficient development
there appears to be no doubt of their
being not only ahle to suppy the needs
of British Columbia, present or future,
but to furnish an immense supply for
export, and as the supply for home
consumption will first he provided for,
fear of a shortage of coal or coke in
British Columbia is as absurd as fear
of a shortage of timber. Such shortages can come only through the dis
eotiiagemenl of eiiteiprise hy a foolish
policy of obstruction, and there is no
reason in the world why this charter
should not he granted. Instead of becoming so alarmed at the possibility of
British Columbia coal going into the
United 8tates, we should assist any
enterprise that is likely to offer a mar
let for thp products of our coal mines.
Story with a Moral.
Here is the latest story of the man
who is too stingy to t»ke his home
paper : A man who is too economical
to subscribe for a paper sent his litlle
boy to borrow lhe copy taken by bis
neighbor. In his haste the hoy ran
over a four-dollar stand of bees, and in
ten minutes looked like a warty squash.
His cries reached his father, who ran
to his assistance, and failing to notice
a barbed wire fence ran into that,
breaking it down, cutting » handful of
flesh fiom his anatomy and ruining a
four-dollar pair of pants. The old cow
took advantage of the hole in the
fence and got into the cornfield and
killed herself eating green corn.
Hearing the racket, the wife ran, upset a Hve gallon ihurn full of rich
cream into a basket of chickens, drowning the whole flock. In the hurry she
'dropped a seven-dollar set of false
leeth. The baby, left alone crawled
through the spilled milk and into the
parlor, ruining a brand new twenty-
dollar carpet. During the excitement
Ihe oldest daughter ran away witb Hie
hired mad, tbe dog broke up eleven
setting hens and the calves got oul,
tmd chewed tbe tails off four Hne shirts.

The payshoot comes within a few
inches ot the surface, where it Is exposed, and ie the richest ore that has
been near the surface at any point on
the porphyry belt.
The descent into the mine Was then
begun. Kvery etopein the mtarf was
inspected from the surface to the 400-
foot level. There is still considerable
hand drilling going on where it is inconvenient to set up machine drills,
but there are three of the latter iu
operation. At all points where the
men were at work there were solid ore
bodies, and all of it of good grade, ln
the upper level the ore body averages
aliout three feet across, except in que
spot, where there is a big swell, and it
is about eight feet wide. Itis in this
that the fabulously rich ore was found
t hat gave the mine its great reputation
and its owners wealth.
In the next level helow the swell il
is ul out 10 feet wide and the general
average of the ledge about six feel. In
the same shoot at the 400-foot level
the shoot is .upward of 35 feet wide,
and at the 600-foot level it is as wide
as 56 feet for a short distance.
The mine has been thoroughly
opened up between tbe surface and the
first, second and third levels fur about
220 feet on the soul h side of the tun*,
nels that have been driven to cut l he
ledge at the various levels. About one
half of the ore bas heen sloped ont for
250 feet from the surface. From there
down the ore body is practically intact.
As $600,000 have been taken ont of
one half of the oie that is known to
exist above the 250-foot level it will be
readily seen that the mine will produce
a pretty large amount of gold before
ihe or" is exhausted ubove the level of
N'o. 4 tunnel, which cuts tbe ledge at a
deplh of IK» feet.
After leaving tunnel No, 3 the party
went to the month of No, 4 tunnel,'
auu arter walking n, a,ouofcrt«fee fade*
was reached. This is the tunnel
through which the ore from the upper
levels reaches the sampler.
Here a large station has been cut out
for the accommodation of the ore
cars. The ledge at this point is ahout
30 feet wide and 60 feet south of the
tunnel it is 56 feet wide.
Superintendent Casey stated that a
new 15 drill compressor plant bas been
ordered und a 60 horse power engine.
The station where the winze is will he
enlarged for the reception of the hoist
and the station at Uie tunnel will be
considerably enlarged to make room
for more tracks. As Boon as new ina
chinery is installed it is contemplated
pushing down the wince and developing the ledge on the WO foot level, as
the ore at tbat point is of high grade.
There need, however, be no rush to
open this level, so far as an ore supply-
is concerned, for it will take several
years for the present plant to treat all
Ibe pre that is now te sight. With
such large reserves tbe conipany can
develop tbe lower working* of the
mine in tbe most systematic manner.
. In the past the work bas been crowded to determine to what extent the
mine was a paying one, or rather to
ascertain if it would justify the erection of a mammoth reduction plant.
The latter question has lieen answered
in the affirmative beyond doubt, for il
is there us a monument to lbe foresight
and euierpiise of the management uf
the Republic company. If all recog
nized signs do not fail generations will
he born hefore the mine is exhausted.
Tbe entire ledge wae not filled with
very rich ore, although it all carries
values that will ultimately pay for
Ireal ment. There is, however, a con
siderable body of the ore that is of
high grade. At tbe point where the
ledge is the widest a winze has been
sunk to a depth of 140 feet At a depth
of 100 feet the ledge was crosscut and
found to be 26 feet wide. Tbat appears
to lie about tbe average width of tbe
big oresboot at lhe 800 foot level. By
actual measurement tbe Republic ledge
has beeu opened to a depth of TOO fee},

no small degree td the decision to reorganize the old company. Meantime
work was suspended on the No. 1 north
and commenced on lhe No. 2 north
und immediately some small kidneys
of very high grade ore, running, from
$70to$200thetoiiiwiire encountered.
Picked samples assayed up tn linearly all gold. -        „
Owing to reorganization, work was
suspended on this ledge also, but a
trial shipment gave U30.26 net,per ton.
Not heing satisfied witb the smeller
returns for the No. 1 north, the management had the shipment umpired
and the result proved the ore ly'be of
shipping value.
Last month work wa^i repiimrd.on
the No. 2 north. Por the flrst 25 feet
of sinking there was no improvement
in the winze. The vein was dipping
north at 60 degrees ahd it will be remembered lhat the dip of the No. 1
vein waj 30 degrees. Half way distant
hetween these Iwo veins, in the north
tunnel, a small stringer wus found,
dipping 35degrees to lho north. Consequently both this stringer and thc
No. 1 north milst eventually join the
No. 2 north. At a depth of 28 feet t be
stringer came in, aud at a depth of 60
feet the No. 1 vein, if continuous, must
also come in.
A station has just been completed
over the winze and un engine, hoist,
pump, etc., installed, and sinking will
he continued wilh vigor for another

It is confidently expected lhat a strong

union of the two veins takes place-
