feasihitity of the rotlte has sent word
that he will arrive in ahout two Week*
with three lar«e oui His of surveyors
and will i-oimiience the work of loral-
ilig Ihe line lietween hi-ra and Vernon,
As two weeks time hriiigs it near the
Xmas. holidays it is scarcely likely
that much work will he done hefore
the heginuintfof Ihe new year,
The three survey patties whieh will
commence work shortly will he placed
al three ditfeient points along the line,
onesiai'tingat Midway, hup at Vernon and the third, uolivoieiuiitB al
Canni will work northward lowuids
Vernon, Itis estimated that il will
take the two parties stli-veyitig hetween Verdun mid Canni ahoul the
snine length of time to complele the
survey of that portion of th? road, as
it will take the oilier party to cum
plete tlie distance lietween here mid
Oariui so that work of actual constinc
liim can he ciiiiiiiienceil nt as many
different p.iiiits along lhe entire rnnd
as the promoters may deem nilvisiihle
and thus prevent any delays lo the
work of coiisi rue ion as sunn as spring

will famish hut little business to a

among those'to which ii intends to

which is tloulltless a rich mineral
piiuillry and would prove a great
source of revenue to that line and give
il a greal nil vantage over lliflO. P, H.

eiinnecls Vei'iinn witli that point and
iherefore gives it connection With the
coast over a line tunning llu-nugh the
richest Sections of the province. This
arrangement would he alright for this
country providing the government
granted the subsidy for the building of
the Coast Koolenay line lo a competing company hut if it didn't then it
would he all wrung.
The building of the MidWay-Vernon
road will materially assist in making
Midway the great railway, smelter and
commercial centre it is sure to become,
for eventually all the West Fork ore
will he 8inelt"d here, This town has
the best smelter site of any town in
the district, and when the Midway
Vernon railway opens lip the West
Fork country lhe mining industry will
develop and the ore Will he hauled
down hill to Midway where is its
natural point for treatment. For
what more favorable advantages could
any town offer l o any smelting compuny than an ideal smeller site with
plenty of Water aud affording a down
hill haul for hath ore and Cuke ?
Rambler Interest Sold.
F. J. Finucane, manager of the Bank
of Montreal, Greenwood, has purchased
a one-eighth interest in the Rambler
claim from Gorman West. The re
niainder of the claim is owned by W.
.1. Nelsnn and E. Bumbo, The properly is one of tlie nio-t promising up the
West Fork. It is situate on Wallace
mountain, about three miles east of
Beaverdell. The lead on which a shaf '.-
is now being sunk nn Iw leneed fin-
1,0(10 feet across the property. The
shaft is now down 80 feel) and at this
depth lhe ledge is e'ght feet in Width,
and lias a paystreak of about four feet
of solid metal eairying good values in
silver. Nalive silver shows plainly in
the paystreak und it is altogether
probable that the ore will run over one
hundred dollars lo the Ion. Already
a carload of ore has been sacked and is
ready to he hauled to Midway as soon
as (here is ntillli-ient snow to admit of
it being hauled hy sleighs.
As Others See Us.
Under the caption "Canadians Are
Loyal" the Spokesman Review, in
speaking of Canada sending soldiers to
South Africa, says i
It litis again been demonstrated Ihal
the mother country limy confidently
rely on Canada when in times of stress
there is need for aid from lhe colonies.
The Canadians want tn run their own
affairs about as Ihey please, and would
no dnuhl resent interference hy the
head authorities of tlie empire, hut
ihey are intensely loyal to (lie British
throne and stand ready to defend It
under all circumstances or to assist in
any military operations that have for
their object thu glory of the empire.
Whenever England lias called upon
the coluniea for support in any trouble,
actual or threatened, Ihe Canadians
have been among the lirst to respond.
Frequently they have volunteered aid
before it bus been asked and there lias
never been any doubt as to what Ih
answer would be tn a request for Canadian support, ln 1885, when war
clouds began to roll up un the boundary line between Russia and Afghanistan and all Europe looked for serious
hostilities, the Dominion wus ready
wiih men and money and would have
done iiinie than her share to protect
the Indian empire.
All Canada wns eager in share in lhe
Doer war, and when the summons
came for volunteers the number of
those presenting llieinsi'lvesfnrservice
was greatly in excess of the quota re*
quired. Thc question was not how to
lind the uun hut how lo select from
the many anxious to share in Ihu
South African campaign. There is
likely to be a similar experience in
choosing the 000 men whose services
have just been tendered for the Boer
war and accepted with thanks by tbe
imperial government.
A Diamond Drill Will be Installed on
the Property.
for a long time the owners of claims
on Copper mountain, Myers creek,
have been looking forward with great,
interest to tlie time when the long tun--
nel that was heing run on the Buckhorn would slrike the ledge at a deplh
of 300 feet, as it was generally conceded
lhat the result would to a great extent,
determine the values nf lhe ore hollies
on Oopper Mounlain al depth, Ahout
two weeks ago the tunnel reached I ho
ledge mid although Ilie result was not
as satisfactory as was expected, yet
there was no reason for alai hut the
superintendent, M. M. Wal*,h, has decided to install a diamond cl■ ill mid
more thoroughly explore lhe properly.
The Buckhorn is one of n group of
eight claims owned by tlie Monterey
Mining company, A shaft has been
sunk on the pioperty to a depth of llii)
feet, at the bottom of whieh a crosscut
was runi showing the ledge to lie SO
feet in width, assays from which gave
good values.
The surface showings of the Cupper
inountain properties are etiucuiuus.aiul
if tbe ledges at depth prove lobe of
cm-responding widths, it will be one of
tho best mining camps west of here.
Fire at Anaconda.
Early last Thursday morning fire
broke out in the premises of the Palace
Hotel. Anaconda, and in a short time
the building aud its contents were re*
duced to ashes. It is not known how
the Die originated, hut. il had1'gained
good headway before being discovered,
There is no effective water system iu
Anaconda, so it was impossible to
check the flames and only for the
effort* of a volunteer lire brigade, a
neighboring building distant about 80
feet, would have also gone up in Haines,
as it was no damage was done to it beyond ubad scorching, liooper.t Bell,
the proprietors, estimate the loss ou
the contents al $2,600 on which they
had un insurance of $1,000. Thomas
Hardy, of Phoenix, owner of tlie
building fstnntiled it. to be worth
$5,000 on which he had $2,800 insurance
The conflagration spread with sueh
rapidity lhat the guests were unalile
lo save hut very little of their belong
ings, A few weeks ago the palace
narrowly escaped being luirn-d, owing
to adefectiveftue, however, the flames
were discovered and extinguished in
lime to prevent any serious loss. The
palace Was built in 180(1 by Thomas
Hardy, since then ihe town Ims grade,
ally grown towards (ireenwood until
it was poorly situated to do n large
trade, so it is not likely it will be rebuilt,

Thi first passenger l rain on the Republic and Grand Forks railway to

Forks and Nelson, Wash., was run last
Wednesday evening, the rails having
been laid that clay as far as the latter
place, The event was celebrated l-y it
party of excursionists going fnun
Orand Forks and partaking of the hospitality of thu Nelsouiles, who w. ro
naturally Jubilant over I he advent of a
railway after long years of waiting in
animus expectation and tendered the
visitors a banquet after which a few
speeches were made and the train loud
ot visitors returned home about eleven
o'clock. Charles Keigusnn, the contractor In charge of the work, announces that the grading is completed
all the way to Curlew, The trestle at
that point, he oxpects will lie done in
about three weeks and io the meantime Ibe (trading Irnin Curlew to Republic will he completed. A 1 u-go
quantity of stee1 is at Nelson ready to
lie laid and work Will be pushed. II. is
expected by the contractors that the
road will be reiufy for operation to He-
public ahout February 1st.

lhe Anglo-Saxon race is divided into a
numher <jf antagonistic, units, each
fighting life like "Hal of the Wynd"
for their own hand, and each making
noiliing of it, Today Empire and Cnl
opy are (it the parting of the ways.
They are entering into a closer relationship wiih each other or they are
forevei drifting apart, and tomorrow
there will come the hour when all are
met together on one common plane to
save all or to lose all, tn make the En
glish speaking race the world factor of
power or forever' to damn it by insensate discussion. But we hope iu fate's
propil inns guidance, when the elements
of di.-cord having been gut over and
mutual slock taking finished, the hand
of nation shall grasp that of nation,
and opposing factions having sunk
iheir selfishness shall arise in the newness uf might and dignity, proclaiming
as Carlyle prophesied of the Teutons,
"The lime of day to the whole civilized
In Ihis lies the hope of Ihe future
and the guarantee of the world's peace,
fm it surely has been destined that the
Saxon shall dominate-the earth and
by lhe Iiiienil dictation of terms of

to agree. Then shall have come the
dreams of the enthusiasts of tbe ages,
tbat of the Christ, "A world of peace

"The parliament of man, the federation of the world."
But how lo bring it about and how
to reconcile the opposing influence of

the p-ohlem of a life. Just now ..few
can do anything but dream of it, but
the-gnod sense of the people when they
are made to -.recognize a good thing

"I iliil nnl coniB here voluntarily,Inl
at thu pressing invitaiion of some of
my most pressing creditors on your
commit t"e.   This is the first opportunity! have had of meeting you hunk
presidents collectively, and when you
are thawed out.   I have met most of
ymi Jpdlvidually.when you were frozen
stiff.     I  never supposed  you could
warm up, us yon seem to have done,
niy previous impressions having heen
of the 'Ilow'd you like to he the ice
iniin' order.   Sometimes I have alinn»t
thought I would rafchw no wi.hout the
nioiiey than get a congestive chill in a
hank president's office and have him
giizo into my eyes and read Ihe inmost
secrets of my soul, and ask unfeeling
ijui'glions.iind pry rudely into my past,
and throw out wild suggestions ubout
gelllni; Mr. Aslur Io endorse for me,
nnd'other similar atrocilies.   And,even
if I, Succeeded in deceiving  him  he
leads ine, ciushed, humiliated and feeling like 30 cents,Jo a fiy cashier, who
taking adviintiige of my dazed condition, includes in my three moiilhs'note
not only Clirisluuu and Fourth of July,
lint St..Patrick's Day, Ash Wednesday
and sixteen Sundays, so that hy the
time  he  has  deducted  tlie  interest,
what's coming to me looks like a woolen undershirt after its first interview
with an African blanchisseuse.  That's
the kind of thing the poet hud in mind
when he wrote, 'I know a hank whereon the wild thyme grows.'
"1 have observed that one's recep
tion al a hank varies somewhat with
the condition of the money market,
(in in when money is easy and the
president falls on your neck, rails yon
by your first name, and cheorfully
loam, you' large' stuns on yoiu balloon
lioi.nnon and your smoke preferred,
and you go away rejoicing. The nexi
d.iy,news having arrived that a Dutch,
man near Ladysmith, or an Irish lady
chef has sent some Iwo pounds sterling
to her fnniily, money goes up to 180
per iiHixt a mituile, and you 'get" a r.ote
lie in about a second—run home and
ohitige Ihe extremities iri hot water,
and place a porous piaster on what re
mains of your self.est eeni.
"Bankers aie too proud to judge u
man by his appearance, so that th"
very men who need ihe money most
have the hardest work to get it.' They
are apt, especially ut the city bank, to
discriminate against a feller who looks
rocky, in favor of the Kockyfeller.
Clothes do nol make the man. If they
did, Hetty Oreen wouldn't bp where
she is and Russell Sage wnuld be in the
Old-Ladies' Home. If Uncle Ifussell
had to travel on his shape, he would
never see much of tlie world. Yet, beneath Ihe ragged coat there beats a
heart, which us a beater can't he heut-
a heart as true (so the Standard liar
people say) as true us steal.
"I had intended lo touch upon a few
vital iiues'tions concerning finance this
I'Vi'iiiiu.', but Ihe night is waning and I
guess yon have all heen 'touched' snffl
cii'iilly of late, so I will restrain myself
and give some other orator a chance
to get himself disliked."—Post-Outlook.
