ASK TIME TO CONSIDER
St. Eugene People Want Another
Week   Will Deoide by Priday
August 17th.
Last week tlio mill mon ut the
St. Eugene mado it icqtiost for
un oight, hour dny, and asked for
un answer from the oompany by
August tOtli, Manager Aldrtdgf
lius asked for another week in
whioh to ooitslder the matter,
ami we understand tha mon, ore
majority of thom. wore favorable io this aud thin Uis request
wus granted.. Mr. Aldridge
wis'i.'d to confer with the mino
owners in tho Ooetir d'Alenes
before reaching a decision.
it sootns there is considerable
difference between the profits
made by tlie Ooeurd'Alenesilver
mine owners and thoso of British
Columbia. So much so is this
that the mino owners in the
Coenr d'Alenes get nearly JI80
a ton more for their product
than those of this province.
This will probably be taken into
consideration in arriving at a
decision. However the fact still
remains that mill men are as
scarce as hen's teeth and they
are masters of the situation, tor
the present at least. The time
limit asked for will expire next
Kriday,    August   17th.—Moyie
Leader.	
Lawn Tennis.
Messrs Beale and Pinkham
travelled to Pernie on Saturday
last to try conclusions with the
lawn tennis experts of that city.
Both in the doubles and singles
they did credit to themselves
winning every set played.
Some pretty interesting play
was witnessed in several sets
notably, that with Dr. Higgins
and Mr. Herchmer, but the
Cranbrook pair were too heavy
for their opponents and wou
handily. In all "1 games were
played, and only 19 were lost by
the visitors. It is to be hoped
that Pernie will send up some
players to try. the balance of the
Cranbrook club.
The tournament of the Cranbrook club is very nearly over,
the gentlemen's doubles being
the only unfinished round. Miss
Marjory Armstrong won the
ladies singles by defeating Mrs.
Elwell III the finals. Mr. T.
Gallon by defeating Mr. N.
Wallanger in the titials repeated
his victory of last yeur in the
handicap, which in the mixed
doubles he also won with Miss
Armstrong as his partner. In
the ludios doubles the Misses
Armstrong won after a very
hard match with Mesdames Elwell & Hoskins.
A great deal of interest has
been taken in the games, the
dispersing of afternoon teas, so
kindly provided by the ladles
proving a sure attraction, and a
great addition to sociability.
A Card of Thanks.
Members of tho Miners Orchestra wish lo thank tho parties
advising thom not to associate
with black minstrel men when in
the city. They realize the fact
that their faces would turn black
Little Billy (ioat.
gave orders to signal "ass" on
one must nnd "all right" on tho
other,   lint  there was siill no
reply.
As il is very Important that
signals from vessels passing the
lighthouse should be reported
properly, the captain complained
to the authorities, Tho Investigation showed Unit ut the moment
the Montebello passed tho lighthouse the signalman on duly was
busy at the telephone. After he
hud finished his oonvoi'saMnn he
saw the second signal Hying.
"Ass,   All   Wight!"     lie look it
as a personal Insult from tho captain und did not consider it neces-
ury to reporl it to the propel-
authorities or to reply to  the
igniil. The matter has caused
a great deal of amusement in this
city, particularly in marine
circles.
STEAMBOAT RACE

Upper Columbia   The Ptarmigan or (Han
To settle the above question n
match for £100 a side
between the S. S. Ptarmigan und Cupt. NorthooteCantlie'f
motor launch, the Glan, has been
arranged. The start will be
made at 8 o'clock on Sunday
morning at the Wilmer landing,
and the first bout to pass the
boom at Golden wins the prize.
The proceeds are to be given to
the Golden Hospital. This will
be the most exciting contest in
the history of the Upper Coliiin
bia river, and with the respective captains steering their own
racers we may be sure that the
friendly contest will be forced to
a finish. Prom all wecan gather
it will be a most evenly contest
ed race as the difference in time
of the two boats down tho river
is very close. The winner will
be announced at The Outcrop
Palace by a special correspondent
directly after thecontestisended.

Christiaoia, Norway, August
16.—The report of the investigation of certain charges against
the keeper of the lighthouse at
the mouth of the Christiana Fjord
has brought to light the farcical
details of a curious misunderstanding. Some time ago King
Edward sent a donkey as a
present to his little grandson,

The donkey wus sent on the
steamer Montebello, and tho captain got instructions to look well
after the animal. On arrival

Edison  Proposis   To   Hast   Concrete Cottages
New York, August R Whole
houses iiioiiltli.il in it simrli' easting out of solid concrete, which
will provide cosy homos [or work-
Inginen at a cost from ouo-lltth to
one-forth of what tin- average
mechanic pays today, is u goal
which Thomas A. Edison in si riving io reach by plan ho is confident will work oul successfully,
Combined with economy of construction and maintenance tho
Inventor alms lo embrace architectural beauty and practical
iniluNlruciUtility In llio project,
by which hnex poo ts lo revolution-
izo present methods of creeling
the poor niitiis home. Ho Intends
next year to miiko the tirsi practical experiments in moulding
solid concrete houses in it new
village near Warren Cove, N.J,
just across the Delaware river
from Easton, Pit. One of the
big Edison industrial establishments is situated there, and he
purposes to erect homes by the
new process for tho families of
the hundreds of employs of the
plant.
Describing in detail the plan
he has devised. Edison said: "I
purpose, after obtaining the
designs, to have metallic moulds
made to correspond  with  them.
The mould for each house will
be made in detachable puns.
There will lie separate plates
and small moulds that can bo
screwed together easily lo form
one mould for an entire house.
That a line tinisli may be obtained
lhe inside surface of llie parts
will be nickel plated.
"After it mould for a whole
house is set. up, it will be u very
simple mutter to pump concrete
into every nook uiul cranny.
Thu pumping process will not
require more than a few hours.
After four days Hint at most will
be necessary for the hardening
of the concrete the parts of the
mould will he unscrewed and
taken oil', and a solid concrete
house will remain."
The inventor says that under
ordinary circumstances the concrete dias will not cost more
than from $500 to #600 apiece.
"When my plan is actually
put lo practical use," he said,
"mechanics earning $2.50 a day
can live as well, so far as the
quality and convenience of their
homes is concerned, as
men now earning $10 a day. It
costs now about $2,000 to build a
frame villa of the size and with
the convenience of the proposed
concrete houses. It costs now
about I|I8,000 to put up a brick
house of Ihe same description.
Neither tt frame nor a brick
house is anything like so durable
as the concrete houses will be.
To reproduce one ol' Ihem iu
stone would cost $15,000."
Ottawa in a Ferment.
There is reason to believe that
the proposal to make Ottawa, as
the Canadian capital, a national
district similar Us that of Washington, Is assuming a definite and
serious shape, and lliere is strong
probability that the residents of
the city and the people of the
Dominion will, ere long, be called
upon to make a pronouncement
on the question. The suggestion
has been made from time to time
in an inconsequential manner,
butonly since the appointment by
the governiiieii'. of t he Ottawa improvement commission and the
splendid effect of that appointment has any serious thought
been given to it.
At the close of the last session
of parliament the matter was
incidentally debated iu the senate
and since then it has been a subject of discussion in influential
circles.
Naturally Hu! question  is one
of great importune,' iii the
people of the city. One ol the
objections Will be the loss ol' thei
electoral franchise Thedlstrlet
of Ottawa, say ten miles square
innl taking in both sides of tho
river, would be deprived of representation in both tiie federal
und provincial parliaments, The:
cii) council antl oilier municipal!
bodies would be abolished uml   a
commission, appointed by   'heI
federal authorities, suhsliluiiictt.
There wimlil boucoliiplelerliiiliii'e
In thi' taxation, but this would
probablj be to the henelil of the
riiiepayors, The possibility of
Ottawa's Industrial growth being
Stunted   when  governed    by    a
commission naturally leaning towards making the cily a legislative und residential centre,
would also have lo he given serious consideration.

his labors for the fiscal year us
lend homily commissioner. The
total shipments for the year
eliding June 80, itioii, were 25,-
"Union, a decrease of uboul 1,500
Ions from the figures of the preceding year The shrinkage is explained by Mr. Buchanan as due
to shut down of the St. Eugene
after the tire iu the Lake Shore
mine lasl full and the inactivity
of the Sloean, The Sullivan
mine was in constant operation,
whereas during l!li'4-5 it was
worked for only four months,
but its shipments were not sufficient to make up the difference,
The price of lead, which hus long
been above the bounty limit, ap
pours not lo greatly stimulate
operations in Sloean,
The gelogical survey and the
mines branch of Canada, heretofore attached to the interior department, have now been placed
under the charge of Hon. M.
Templeman, the minister of inland revenue. At the next session of parliament consideration
will be given to the matter of
naklng the mines branch an Individual department with Hon.
Templeman at Its head as minister of mines. The change is
commendable, us the mines
branch will be better able to continue its good work in investigating and encouraging the development of Canada's vast mineral resources.
