The Ozonogram, the new
Vancouver publication, edited
by R. T. Lowery and William
McAdams, has made its appear-
adco. The publishers' announcement is written in the
same humorous style as characterized the New Denver
Ledge under Lowery's guidance.   It is as follows:
This is the Ozonogram. We
present it without an apology,
lf it makes a hit with you, buy
it. The relaxation will do you
good and we need the money.
If it fails to catch your fancy,
use a megaphone to toll everybody you meet that the Ozonogram is on the train that transports bacon; roast it, qualify it
in the choicest language at your
command, run it down—say any
thin;,' at all, just so long as you
talk about it. The benefit will
be mutual.
We are here to stay 99 years
and no longer. If we can make
the Ozonogarm stand uj
through the deal it proves the
existence of the long-felt want
which is supposed to beckon
journalists to every new field.
If it falls down, there will be

most interesting state docu
nients of the session is the re
port which was presented t.
tho legislature yesterday of th.
mission to Ottawa some few
weeks ago of the Premier, th-
Hon. Col. Prior, and the At

of Mr. Dunsmuir, during hi

The greatest possible revenue
According to this representation
would be $42,500. Wo would
like to ask the Premier if the
.government olficial would not
collect any other revenue besides that mentioned above.
Where, for instance, would the
t()0 male adults in this hypothetical Arcadian settlement get
their booze? Would the govern-
nent officials allow them to
:onduct "blind pigs"? It is
jtrange that the person who
conceived this hypothesis, we
lo not suppose the Premier
•ould spare time to prepare
..hese well sustained arguments
overlooked this, and most
emarkable that the Premier
lid not notice the oversight.
As a matter of fact in a settle-

5,000 tons daily, a figure far in
excess of the present capacity
of coke Two additional furnaces
making a total of six, will be installed and treiiting'ore early in

Nest com j mny, which i.s erecting
additional coko ovens, will, it is
expected, be in a position to
meet all the requirements of the

Mr. Graves was interviewed
regarding the report that the
Granby company is likely to pay
its first dividend at an early

shall certainly <lo so lf we can
have 60 days full run of the
four furnaces. During the pnst
14 months the smelter, owing
to the lack of coke, and the coal
miners' strike, was worked only
(two months at its full capacity.
The first carload of equipment
for the two new furnaces, was
shipped last week from Chicago."
