In course of his report on last sea-'
son's  activities  here, George Clothier,
examining engineer for  the  Provincial
Government, says:
This Division has had a year of unprecedented activity and progress,;
and, w::h the siart it has made this j
summer, even greater results may be
expected for next year. The majority
of the older and better-known pros-
pects were bonded last winter or very j
ea:!y in the spring, and on account of
ihe lateness of the season in this section no supplies could be taken in until in .lime, and in some cases it was
luly before any work could be started: consequently the amount of work
done in this, the first year, has been
comparatively small, but very encouraging. As conditions permitted, examinations were made of other prospects, with the result that many were
NEW YORK, March 26. A brisk
rally in sterling exchange at the opening of the market here today sent demand bills to $3.89, or 2 1 4 above the
high mark of yesterday and a new high
mark in the present upward movement.
The low record, $3.19, was made Feb.4.
LONDON, March 26.���There seems to
be a possibility that the mine's strike
wid be avoided. Negotiations have
been resumed with the government
submitting a slightly modified offer.
While this is considered unlikely to affect the miners' views, it indicated a
spirit of consolation and negotiations
continuing.

The number of mining transactions
this winter augurs well for a season of
great.activity throughout the  Portland
Canal   district.   The   deals   have   not
been confined  to Salmon River by any
means.    To   those    who   have    their
stakes in other sections, it  is  particularly pleasing to   note  that  attention
has turned to other areas, r.otably back
of Stewart and also   Marmot River,
four miles   down  the  canal.      Several
companies are preparing  to undertake
operations as early as  possible, though
for the coming  season  the  work maybe of only a preliminary nature.   Few
new companies  are strong   enough  to
start exploration   on  a  scale liKe the j
Algunican   Development   Co.   of   Belgium, which already has  a  compressor
plant on   the  Spider and will diamond
drill the Northern  Light  this  season.
But though  the lesser companies  will
have to go to  the public for  their development fund, the woik they may do
this season ought to prove  still further
opening of new resources.    As  well as I
