Increased Development is
Now Going On.
There Will be a Large In
crease in the Mineral
Output This Year.
Tbe at. Kugenc mine, owned by thc
Consolidated Mining &. Hmclting Co.,
Is employing about 280 men under
gound and witb mill and surface
hands, has a payroll of $40,01111,which
ls distributed to 3S0 men per month.
Last year the company took out
over 142,000 tuns of ore which when
treated at their smelter abd refinery
situated at Trail, yielded $705,000
This company has done cunsiileru-
ble development work and a prosperous year is looked lorward to as
there is plenty ol ore in sight.
The Aurora Mines ,v Milling company have a line property, located nn
the west side of Luke Moyle, about
three-nuartiirs of a mile from the St.
ln No. 1 level, there is about 500
Iwl of drifting with 100 feet of crosscuts giving line showings nr high
grade ore.
uu No. 2 level, they have 350 feet
of drifting with over 100 leet of rnis
ing, in which about 35,000 tons of
ore is already blocked out.
liaising is started from Nn. 1 level
and in thc course of a low days they
hope to bo in contact with thc main
ore body.
Tney have started sinking n winze
(rom No 2 level and u low shifts
more should bo enough for tlicni to
be sinking in ore ground.
The prospect of this valuable property is most promising and wo may
look for a brilliant future for tnem.
As soon ns weather permits liuiuii-
ing of these ores will he commenced.
A later report received this week,
says: "That a strike of high grade
ore was made iu the Aurora mine
In sinking n winze a lend of unout
20 Inches in width was found. The
ore lu silver-lead and carries percentages iu copper. This strike is considered important from the fact that
it waa unexpected and Is apparently
a separate lead from thc big vein
heretofore developed ill the mine.
The lllco property owned by Joseph Cisnvallo, situated north of
Moyle, is a very promising gold
property, upon which 200 feet of
drifting, on thc lead gives showings,
which are very encouraging and which
have yielded assays of about $117 to
tbe ton.
A local company is being formed,
and development work on this property Is to be pushed ns rapidly as

W. Pitch, and adjoining the llico on

property. The Hlll'tuco shnivliiiin were
gond, nnd a considerable amount nl
ore was shipped. Later nn it was
determined tn run a tunnel uml tup

On Saturday Inst, the ore hotly
was encountered, nnd muss cuts shuw
that there are 48 feet ol concentrat

The ore was encountered nt u dis

Difference.-. Between Yivq Brigade
and Kx Chief Kink Settled
A special meeting of the Fire Brl
gade wns held in tb- Firt Hall on
Friday evening. Chief Dczall occupied the chair.
Beside the members, Kx-ChicI Fink
and Alderman Jackson were present.
In calling the meeting to order Chief
Dczall said that owing to conflicting
reports in relation to the action oi
of the brigade, he had Invited Bx-
Chief Fink to be present, so that if
possible, In the interest of thc city,
ilmt a harmonious conclusion could
ho arrived at.
Kx-Chicl Fink soid: "That he had
been a member of the brigade for 11
years. That he had informed mem
hers of the brigade that if be wan
re-elected as Mayor, that he would
resign as chief. Thnt. Ir was unfor

general interests of the brigade thit
might arise during tbe yoar, That
it was not bis desire, or inclination
to participate as an active chiel', or
to interfere lu any wny with Chief
Dczall in the performance of his duties, and tlmt he hoped that the
members of the department would

nothing unfair iu allowing Kx-Chief
Fink to represent the brigade In
matters of general interest, at tho
convention, and during the year.
Alderman Jackson then spoke a few
words, saying that, he after talking
with Mr, Fink, was satisfied that
there was a mis-understanding. He
was satisfied that the department
had no better friend than Mr. Fink,
and If outsiders hnd not hutted In,
there would have been no mis under

Messrs. Brechen, Armour, Recce,
Manning, Atkins, nnd others spoke
freely on the matter, and were agreed '
that there was not a perfect understanding between the Kx Chief and
the brigade, nnd thnt this mls-iinder '
standing bad been fostered by outside
parties, and that now, as there was
a perfect understanding they were
pleased that Fix-Chief Fink would

The result of the meeting is a
source of satisfaction to the brigade,

Canada and the  Empire
Powerful Utterances by Honorable R. L. Borden •on^the
Ottawa, Peb. 17. In bis speech on
thi; Navnl Defence Mr. 11. I.. Uorden
K[»oko with trreat power on tho duty
of ('-Hindu part ici put ini; in the de
fence of the Empire, line passage
in his speech waa ils follows:
"I can understand the man who
advocates independence. In that case
With ten thousand miles of co.ist |
Uno and a great sea home commerce,
wo must of necessity become a naval
power ait enormously increasing e.x-
pease or else remain the plaything j
and laughing stock of the world.
"1 can understand the man if there
be any such in Canada, who con-'
seientinusly advocates the union of
this country with Ihe great neigh '
boring republic, hut let him remember that such a union would be followed by naval and military charges
of from twenty to twenty-five million
per annum.
"1 cannot however, understand how
any man receiving and accepting the]
protection of the British Klag, tho
advantages of British citizenship, the
snle-gunrding of our coasts, tlie se* j
eurity of our shores, the benefits and
advantages ol tho diplomatic nnd]
consular     service     throughout     the'
world, the talisman.!' protection of
our Hug can reconcile it witn his
sell-respect to have every dollar Of
the cost paid by the overburdened
taxpayers of the Hritish islands,
"We have the power to adopt that
position if we choose because the liberties which we hold as of right and
of grace are in this respect absolute,
but 1 cannot conceive it to be a
worthy or honorable course. It is
not so much a [quostlon of our duties
or obligations to the mother country as of our own honor and self-
"I am the (loftcendent uf those who
have never lived under any other
(ban the British ting since it lirst
streamed to the free winds of heaven,
I am as profoundly uud unalterably
attnched to Ilritish institutions and
connections, and as ready to work,
and it necessary to tight for them as
any man in Canada. Hut if my
country, one of the richest in tho
world in proportion to its population, should accept the humllltnttoh,
the degrading, the pauperizing position of receiving future protection
and safety at the hands and cost of
tlie  British taxpayer  without  contri
buting one dollar in aid or assistance
1 would that the sooner the empire
wits nd o| her the bettor lor all.
"When the battle of the Armageddon conies, when the empire is lighting for its existnnec, when our kins
men of the great dominions are in
the forefront «if the battle, shall we
silent and        Inactive while
we contemplate with snug satisfaction our Increasing crops und pro
duets or shall we pauper-like seek
landed but delusive security in an
appoal to the charity of some indeti
nite nml high sounding and political
doctrine of a great neighboring nation.   No, a thousand times no.
"There will he no such outcome,
, It may bo that the Canadian people
absorbed in the development of their
I marvellous resources have paid but
little heed in tin wide world activities oi the empire, and hnve realised
but imperfectly the responsibilities
and tlui ies ot their country as one ol
tho greatest dominions. But they do
not lack the intelligence, the vision,
the courage, the patriotism accessary to realize those duties aad accept
those responsibilities."
Mr McKenula Kim: Tho committee in ns report, asks thn leave bo

He managed to ovado giving a square
niiHwer. Later on the commWteo;
ashtid fttr permission to engage an
expert. Prof, Skelton of Queen's
university to give his information on
the eight-hour dny abroad. In the
I course of the discussion the following
I Pggg&gfL occurred: —
Bank of
Victoria, Felt. 12.—A good etaal of
buslneas wns done today iu adVo.il*
citig various moflsurei* through the
committee stage. Thtwe had already
been discussed ho the session was
quiet one. i'erhups the chief debate
wan on a private hill, that to incur
point-' the Mcn/h's Kay Itailway com
pany. As reported by tin* private
hills committee permission was given
to the company to erect telephone as
well as telegraph lines along its
right of wny for use in connect (nn
with thc operation of its railway;
alsu to give a public service over its
telephone as well ns over its telegraph line and to erect such connection lineti as may be necessary for
ibis purpose.
Parker Williams moved that the
clause providing for the public use of
tUG telephone line ho struck out for
the reason that corporations wanted ;
too many powers.
Mr. Caven said that there was a
general tendency on the part ol modern railways to aupplement their telegraph lines with telephone lines for
tho sake of grenter convenience iu operating their trniiiH. If they were
going to put up such linns for their
own convenience, why not let the
public get the benefit. Railways put
tip telegraph poles and wires for tholr
own nt«; nnd this is mode the moans
of supplying the public also with
telegraph service. Why not lot the
public get. the benefit ol telephone
connections established in the same
wny. In many cases the benefit to
tho public would even he greater. It
might be poiislhle then to find out
how late a passenger train for which
you aro waiting was golog to be. A
principle good in tho case ol telegraph lines was Hiirely good In the
•cam? of telephone lines also.
The amendment was defeated.
Ilr. Jardlne complained that aume,
of the list of (mentions which he bad1
been putting on the order paper bad
not  hern answered.
The premier remarked thai, many of I
, the questions referred to were puorile
i und frivolous.    Hut it wnt* the duty
' ot tlio government to give tho information asked   (or and he    was sure
that   any     Information    nuked     for
would be given,
It turns out thnt as a mntter ol
tact that all tbo questions had been
answered, hut that some of them
merely Inquired for opinions or were
in some other way out of order and
that the answers bad not been printed in tho journals of the legislature
Iiy the clerk of the house because of
the precedent thnt would he created.
A Monster Engine

"While traveling through Canadn
