very encouraging. John Stanton, a director of the Granby

The plans for the various buildings, foundations, etc, have
lieen received here, and active
work on construction will be
started early in January. The
grading of the railway switches

Vascoijvkb, Nov. 18.—The
McBride government rejoices
tonight in a temporary reprieve, Attorney General Wilson being re-indorsed by a majority of 071 over Capt. J. Duff
Stuart in the bye-election here,
A total vote of 4000 was polled, somewhat less than on the
3rd of October, of which Wilson
secured 2,852 and Stuart 1,881.
The victory is taken by the govern ment, people with becoming
As to how it happened, both
parties are a trifle dazed. Undoubtedly the sanguide Liberals
made a mistake in counting on
labor as a natural ally, for the
labor vote proved Conservative,
if anything more than un even
break. Again, as J. A. Macdonald, the Liberal leader, said
in addressing a packed meeting
of the vanquished, the Liberal
organization had been imperfect, and-in consequence the
masses of the community, who
could not be induced to attend
public meetings, did not comprehend the uew und important
issues of the hour.
Vanoouver Liberals feel that
they were right iu itindin/ for
the principles at stake ami that
their loss in a good cause will
not prove in vain. They began

Legitimate Mining.
A western journal quotes thc
statement of a mining company
which puts the difference between the genuine and the fake
company in a nutshell.   It says:
"We are uot Ashing for suckers, nor gunning for mossliueks.
We don't guarantee anything
but square treatment. If we
did not think thut we will get
adequate returns for our time
and money we would quit the
deal cold. If we make money
you will get your share of it if
you take a chance with us."
There are two kinds of mining, as of several other things,
speculative and operative. One
seeks tn make money for the
promoters out of the flrst flourish of trumpets which announces
the company's existence, and
the other seeks to establish an
operating mine upon a paying
basis. The latter may not succeed, but as the statement quoted above puts it the investor
gets a square deal, and if any
one makes money he gets his
■hare. This is placing mining
where it should be, on the same
basis as any other industrial enterprise. Ithasactually abetter
chance of success than the average business, if the figures of
Bradstreet's to the effect that
06 out of every hundred commercial businesses that are
started end in failure, may be
accepted as fact.
, Wily, unscrupulous, and other
choice epithets are often handed
out to the man who asks subscriptions for mining stocks, by
people who would fall over one
another to cast their cash at
the feet of a get-rich-quick man
who had nothing of even problematical value to offer them.
A man who offers an investment in auy legitimate company, mining or otherwise, has
a right to a courteous hearing,
and if the person  approached
refrains from investing, the solicitor deserves us courteous   a
dismissal as the drummer for
any other kind of gotids.   Usually investigation will show that
the man who shakes his head
and says that he has seen too
much of these mining schemes
is one who has put money into
some extrnvagently advertised
company, with   less   business
forethought than he would lie-
stow upon buying a cigar, for in
the latter case he would see to
it that the cigar wus a good one.
To take gold mining as   an
instance, tlie   proposition    is
simply this:   The product, the
pure metal, gold, is always in
demand, and is not liable to the
fluctuations   that  affect other
metals, while the conditions under which it joccurs are  fairly
similar to all.   The prospector,
who is the first man into whose
hands the undeveloped  property fulls, is usually a poor man,
and might just as well abandon
the business us try to do his own
milling; consequently ho, or a
promoter acting for  bim,  approaches the public and lays before   them the  actual    facts.
Here, he says, is a location from
which gold may be turned out;
the product may be estimated
at so much, anil the cost of development at   so  much.   Will
you go shares witb us and try
and  run this  gold  producing
business at a profit?   That is all
that mining promotion amounts
to anyway, when   legitimately
When, however, the promo-"
motion is simply got up to ensnare the sucker, the offer is usually made iu fur more alluring
terms, and premises of immediate dividends nnd enormous
profits are made regardless of
the possibility of fulfillment,
because ull that is wanted is the
first investment to line the
pocket of the fakir; the investor may then go hang.
As a matter of fact mining,
legitimately conducted, will pay
a larger percentage of profit
upon the amount invested thnn
any other industry, and the
payment of a dividend of ten
cents on the dollar will guarantee the market value of the
shares to keep well above par,
us railways and industrials,
whicli pay only half that rate of
interest are always in demand
at a premium. Take a mine
like one Utah gold proposition
which, on a capital of $360,000,
hus already paid $176,000 in dividends in 1003, nnd paid a total
of over three times its capital
stock since commencing operations. Tliere are few industrials whicli can compare with
this, and the value of stock in
such a company will he many
times the par quotation.
Investigation of the facts regarding any mining proposition
is courted by those who are
honestly striving to secure capital for genuine mining, and it
is this class and this class only
who nre welcome to come in
and assist in the development
of this great mining district.
Colonies Support Mr. Chamberlain's Scheme.
Mr. Chamberlain is getting en-
cuoraginent from colonial sources at least in his scheme for
drawing the empire close together by means of a preferential tariff. Toronto Board of
Trade in a meeting a short
time ago, unanimously endorsed his plan as promulgated in
his Glasgow speech. The Australian premier also supports it,
whllo Mr. Soddon, of Now Zealand, is strongly in its favor.

bride was beautifully attired
ina green basque with a yellow

a blue denim petticoat with pas-

eyes nnd hair, a hlue hat with a

Notice of Seed Control Act.
A copy of bulletin No. 15, .in-
titled "Bill No. 200, Reprinted

Seeds with Explanations and
Comments'' has been received.
This pamphlet is issued for general distribution for the purpose of serving as a notice to
tho interested public, and also
to provide means for closer
study of the Hill iu its relations
to operations of seed producers,
seed merchants and seed consumers. The Bill as amended
by the Committee nf tlio
Whole during the recent session
of Parliament, provides that
seeds of cereals, grasses, clovers
or faiiagc plants wliieh contain the seeds of certain noxious weeds named iu the Bill,
will be prohibited from sale.
It further provides for uniform

the animal and brought it on to

this manner, the headlight
seeming to attract them and
before they are conscious of the
danger the engine is upon them,
