Of all Property and Interests Belonging to The Ophir-Lade Mining Syndicate, Ltd.
To The Groat Northern Mines, Ltd.,
I By Shareholders, Who Are Jubilant Over Prospeots.
On Saturday the 16th inst, a meeting
ofthe directors of the Ophir-Lade Mining Syndicjte, Limited, was held at
tlie Criterion hotel, Camborne, commencing ut 7 p.m. The object of the
meeting was to consider a resolution
that was introduced by tbo manager to
sell tho property of the company to
Tho Great Northern Mines, Limited,
and other business ol a general nature.
The reoulution obtained the unanimous
support of the directors, after which
they dispersed.
Shareholders' Meeting..
Immediately following the directors'
meeting, an extraordinary general
meeting of shareholders was held, at
which tho resolution passed by tho di
rectors in disposing of the property of
tho company received unqualified endorsation* This was without exception
tho hest attended and most enthusiastic
meeting of a mining company ever held
in lho Lardeau. Every person presont
spoke to tho motion, whioh was carried
with groat enthusiasm. Another meoting of tho shareholders in the Ophir-
Lade Mining Syndicate, Ltd., will be
held February 1st, to confirm the said
resolution.
The Great Northern Mines, Ltd.
Afterwards, tho statutory meeting of
the Great Northern Mines, Limited,
was hold, at which the following direct'
ore wore elected until the annual meeting next summer: W. B. Pool, J. J.
Young, M.L.A., W. F. Cochrane, F.
W. Godsal, ,1. A. Lade, E. M. Morgan,
B. Crilly and Thomas Kilpatriek.
Other matters of importance also received attention.
At a meeting of the directors hold
subsequently, W. 13. Fool was elected
president and malinger ; F. W. Godsal,
Vice-President! and Robert Hodgo,
Secretary-Treasurer and Solicitor.
Messrs. R, H Welsnu and I!. G.
Matbows, both of Maclood, Alberta,
who aro largely interested in tho Ophir-
Lad�� Mining Co., attended tho mooting
of shareholder*' ut Camborno. Tliey
also visited the mines and mill, aa well
as stopping olY at Poplar Creek, where
they went all over tho Lucky Jack and
Swede properties. Thoy wero very
vory woll pleased with what they saw,
and wont borne feeling they had made
a very Interesting and instructive visit.
^ The system of taxation of minos and
output ns in vogue in British Columbia,
is hardly just or equitable to tlio miner
or company. Assessments should be
made on tbe net output of a mine, and
not on tho gross output after deducting
freight and treatment'charges. Inducements should be made to got capi.
tul to invest in mining. Tax tlio profit
and not the -enterprise. Whero such
laws are In force in our Western states,
the results are more than satisfactory.
���The Mining World, Chicago:
Tho Estimates.
Brought Down on Istli, Show I
Large Decrease.
The estimates of the provincial government were brought down on tho ISth
instant by finance minister Hon. lt. G.
Tatlow. They show a decrease in expenditure, of abouj $50,000 from the estimates of 190;i, being altogether 42,442,-
354.31. Thore is, howover, �� very
sharp advance under the head of public
debt from last yoar, for which public
works and other departments of governmental activity havo to suffer.
This year under this head tho estimate
Is 5008,979.31 as against $517,329 31 last
year. Civil government salaries aro
reduced about $20,000, administration
of justice about $11,000, whilo legislation goes up .{-1,000, partly on account
of tho increased membership of tho legislature.
Maintenance of public institutions
advances about 818,000, aud charities
and hospitals about '$5,000. About
$0,000 is saved under the administration of justice, oilier than salaries.
Education goes up $3,000, transportation
$1,000, and miscellaneous $7,000. Public works decreased from $0OS,250 last
year to $303,250 this year. Under this
latter hoad thero are some startling
figures for' members who ate fondly
hoping for liboral appropriations with
which to placate their supporters.

The opposition press of the country and members to the left of the

over lhe government's doings, and
yet their criticisms appear very
lame, and miserably fail to make it
clearly understood where any incon-

makes one fee! that these oppositionists believe tliey have a mission
to fulfil or a grievance to redress,
and tbey cannot lor their lives discover where thc matter rests that
should receive their expressions of
disapproval. They therefore go on
the principle that tho finance department bas always weak spots
that are open lor attack, and they
go at it, with very sorry results, so
far at leas',.

What a paradise is Ferguson,
with its salubrious climate. The
thermometer registers but a few degrees of frost, and comparatively
little snow lies on the ground ; good
sleighing and fine sunshiny clays.
Wc appreciate this slate of things
the more when we read such headlines as " Ontario shivers too,"
" Fearful cold north and west,"
"Unprecedented cold,weather,"etc.,
which catch thc eye in most of the
papers one picks up. Ontario lias

while at New Lizkarcl the mercury
froze up light, and the people are
denied lhe satisfaction of knowing
just how cold the weather is. Oranges do not ripen on the Irces
about Ferguson in January, neither
do we pluck flowers nor dig sweet
potatoes in the kitchen garden; yet
we have weather that leaves no ex-
excuse for complaint, even though
we do have deep snow occasionally

Russia has declared that she has
no designs on Korea, and she has
intimated tlr.it she is willing to concede practically all the demands
made by Japan. At the same time,
she is not disposed to enter into a
treaty with Japan for the recognition of China's sovereignty over
Manchuria, and she has sought the
good offices of Great Britain to intercede with her ally Japan for the
modification of h.r demands, War

most improbable, and the (ears thai

It is now settled that another session of parliament will be held, and
tbe date of opening has been set for
March 10th. The reason given the
Governor-General by Premier Lanier for advising another session of

into with the government last

Wednesday night was tho opening of

loads of skaters went down fr..m Perguson. They pronounced tho ieo very
fair, and a good timo was spent, both

it would not be sooner than ten days,
and that ho was not returning to the

go lirst, to Victoria. Prom there he
will make visits to dllToreut seetiona ol

intended to take a holiday until spring.
Now Its A Skating Kink.
Forguson people have decided to pro*
vido thomselvcs with a skating rink,
and 6inco Monday every available man
bas put his time in at the rink. Ferguson weather is steady, not too cold and
not very warm, so thero should be no
difficulty In keeping good ieo during the
greater part of tho winter. Skating is
probably the bost exorcise that one can
take in winter, providing one takes It
in moderation, therefore everybody are
glad that a rink is to be provided.
Where skating has the advantage of
dancing, it is a thoroughly independent
exercise. One can skate at any time,
and not havo to depend on any other
person for company. or assistance*
Therefore skating bas always been popular and always will be.
