MININU   NEWS   OP QENERAL  INTEREST
Trail, November 8 —liar, the Gaoder-
hnm Syndicate of Toronto at last acquired
the Trail smelter? Apparently the long
standing deal has been concluded, and
In a few days the official statement will
he given out, although nt present all
news of the subject is being jiitlously
guarded.
Walter II, Aldrldge, ihe general manager of ihe Canadian Pacific smelting
company owning tlie plant and in reality
it C. P. R. concern, about two weeks ago
left for eastern Canada with his wife and
family, and since then all Mr. Aldrldge'
personal effects including his household
furniture has been packed up and dispatched east after their owner,
Mr. Aldridge was appointed general
manager by the CO P. R when the railway look over tbe plant Irom 1-'. Aug.
Helmse, some five years ago, und bis
latest move in going east bag ami bag
gage has been taken to indicate that a
change of ownership, long contemplated,
it ubout to tie concluded* lu fact, Mr,
Aldridge has merely anticipated mutters
a little by moving  off  before tbe aclual
con -summation of tbe deal.
Since tbe departure of the general
manager it is now stated tbe deul baa
been concluded in the east and in a few
days, probably at the forthcoming annual meeting of tbe Center Star Mining
company in Toronto, the official information will be made public.
For a lengthy period, covering the
pasi four or five years, there hits beeu a
mote or less healed controversy in progress between the smelter people and
the War Eagle-Center Star companies
concerning tbe cburges for i.'te freight
and treatment of the 1-mer's ores. The
rale had gradually come down from the
j\.\-fn charge originally obtained by
Mr. lleit-ze and only quite recently ii
was hinted that a satisfactory tariff had
heen concluded, mid il was under tbis
new arrangement that shipments from
tbe two mines were re-commenced in
August last. At least it was so said at
the time.
Three years ago Mr. Oooderhatn, tbe
president of both companies referred to,
expressly Btated lhe strong desire of
these coiporations to follow the lead of
the LeRoi company and own and operate their own smelter for the benefit of
the mines ut Rossland, and Mr. Black-
slock, the vice-president, bus on more
than one occasion reiterated Mr. Good-
ham's views.
To Float a Big Deal.
Revelstoke Herald; James Wardner,
the well known company promoter, lust
Thursday bonded tbe Morgan group of
claims situated oil the middle fork ofthe
Kettle river, from the owners, Pred
Williamson nnd George Doyle. The ore
laken from this property within the past
two weeks stamp it 11s one of the richest
properties In the interior.
The property was located about two
years ago hy the present owners, ami
the work done so far consists principally
of shipping itui) tracing fhe lead. The
lend is from one to three feet in width,
and is remarkably rich in free gold.
The samples brought iu are some of the
fines tbat have been sesn here. Tbe ore

lhe gold, mid in assays taken on rock
showing no free gold, the values run
from *y to $9011 The nearest steam
transportation is ut Arrow Lake mid

miles in length,
Within four miles of the property
(here is also a wagon rond lending to
Vernon, 50 miles away, If the lead
proves a permanent one, as lhe indications point that it will, the question of
transportation will be easily solved,
Tbe lead has been stripped for 90 feet,
and traced for 800, nnd there are several
short shafts sunk, It is 5,000 feet above
sea level hut comparatively easy of
access. Tbere are no other mineral
locations in the neighborhood, Ihe sections apparently having not been considered worth prospecting.

Railway Rates la Uassla.
A commentary on railway passenger
rates ia made by United States Consul
Henry B. Miller of Niuchwnng, Manclni
rin. to connection with the opening up
for traffic of tbe traiissiberian railroad
between St. Petersburg and the Pacific
coast, a distance of about 5,000 miles.
Tbe first class fare from Port Arthur
lo St. Petersburg is $6a 57, or a little
over 1 cent a mile. The second class
fare is $46 81 and $30 36 tblrd class. Tbe
first class fare is less than tbe first class
fare from Spokane to New York, which
is about half tbe distance a passenger
travels on tbe transsiberiau railroad.
To these fares must be added sleeping
car rates between Irkutsk and Moscow
or St- Petersburg; these are, to Moscow,
$9 73 and $5 84 for tlrst and second class;
uud to St. Petersburg, 811 60 or 87 37 respectively. Ouly 36 pounds of luggage,
in addition to band valises, will be carried free; for all excess weight the
charge is $-.06 for each 10 pounds from
the Pacific to St. Petersburg. Tne cost
ol a first class ticket from Japan to London varies from $118 45 to $144,50, according to rouie, aud the trip can be
made in 25 days.
All travelers should be provided with
pasBpost** properly issued by a Russian
consul; tbey should carry blaukels and
pillows, nnd they may travel long distances without meeting any one who can
speak any language but Russian. Meals
cost from 20.6 cents to $1 03. There are
only two trains per week between Irkutsk and St. Petersburg, but these are
provided with all modern comforts, aud
make the trip iu eight days. Prom Irkutsk to l'ort Arthur the journey is
rough aud only mixed passenger ami
freight trains are run.

Political Prophecies.
Morrissey Miner: Speaking of political candidates reminds ua of the fact
that the next campaign in British Columbia will be a hot oue, and in South
HsSt Kooienay It will he a lurid campaign wilb plenty of fire works on the
Bide. There are vailmis elements to
take into consideration mis year, and
among thc potent factors might be classed the labor vote, the railroad interests,
the Crows Nest Coal company and the
rapidly growing party feeling throughout the district. A new Richmond In
tbe field Is the Great Northern. As a
rule Jim Hill keeps his railway interests
out of politics. This was demonstrated
wben be acquired control of the C. B. &
O... which hnd become the controlling
interest in Iowa and Nebraska politics,
Tbe first thing Hill announced was .that
the political machine must go and iu tbe
future tbe talents ofthe railway lawyers
would be devoted to railroading and not
to machine politics. Vet, he is getting
lu to British Columbia very strong. He
bas four connections from the coast to
Morrissey, ur.d is now preparing to build
thc V. V. 81 K line. To railroads in
British Columbia it lias been the custom
to keep close to the political throne al
Victoria, nnd If Jim Ilill joins that
crowd, It would take more thon the
shrewdness of McL Pro imi to keep tbe
C. P. R. nose in the fullest political
kettle.

More Subsidy Wanted.
Prom the remarks mude hy Representative Galliher at a meeting in Windermere recently it ls evident lhat lhe
Kooteuay Central company, that plans
to build up the Kootenay valley from
some point near IOko 10 Golden, will
ask for an extension of lime and increase
lu subsidy.
If this is true there will hardly be any
work done this year, at least not more
than would be necessary to bold the
charier. It is to be hoped that there
will be nothing arise that will jeopardize
the success of this project. The Kootenny Central would be a great benefit lo
the whole district, since it would give
transportation to a section that must
surely develope some rich properties us
soon as It would he possible to ship ore.

When Aunt Mlllj returned from hor
visit to llnaloil, she was a I'luiiim-il »,)-
tllllll     Sin- La.I gullO awnj   a slald old
inahl ni' ihlilj lovi-n, with nevur n im
of iioiist'tiM' uiiniii her, ami sin' hml iv
turned flustrntuil ihat o. sin- simpm-d
ami niggled nnd netoil "glrly." She
luuk tn wen ring bowa ami Jewelry, and
she waa anxious nbout h.-r eyebrows
ami the mole mi inr chin. Her Bister
Ploronce, a widow ami iho bead uf tbo
house, noticed those things wllh something lilu> ustutiislimnii, Iml reserved
comment. She nrgncd Unit they wero
tht> legitimate results uf n woman getting away from the sober lutluences
of her country home nnd thnt tbey
would soon went* off. Her daughter,
Susie Warden, wits the third member
of the household. Susie hud heen denounced ns worldly by the old maid.
She had also been charged with co*
iiiii'li'v. It hid even been hiutml that
she was henrtloss. All this because she
cared more ubout her horses than for
the young men who bowed to her good
looks uml her future tltmnclnl prospects nnd because she preferred a walk
through ihe woods with a gnu in her
hands and a'tlog nt her heels to sitting
ou n rustle bench and flirting with u
callow youth.
Susie hud never been In love or anywhere near It, but Aunt Mlily's symptoms did not osenpe or deceive her.
She judged them to be symptoms of
love, nm! hor curiosity was aroused.
What manner of man eould have touched this old maid's heart? All sorts of
men might fall iu love with n girl; but,
according to Susie's reasoning, only
oue or two sorts would fn 11 in love wltb
nu old maid, and especially a homely
one. She thought things over until slie
felt in n measure responsible for the
aunt who knew nothing of tlm pltfnlls
of the world, nnd then she tackled her
one day with:
"Look here, Aunt Milly, you are In
love, uud I want io know nil about It."
"My dear child, but whnt can you
menn?" gasped tbe aunt as she blushed ns bard as she eould aud bit her linger nails.
"I mean that yon fell In with some
man In Boston who talked soft to you
und that you nre getting two letters a
week from him ami answering them
with exceeding promptness.   It Is no

Aunt   Hilly blnslie.I  BplllO mure uml
fenced Mine mine and then owned up.
It   was a  relief  tu OM u   lip nml  have
somebody to Bhnro bei Joys and nntlct*
pillions, und she  was glad of tin- op*
port tin Ity. Ves. she waa in lovo it
wasn't the wlshy Wit shy love of a
young girl, but a strong, deep feeling,
foundeu on respect, a dm I rut Ion nud

summing up her graces All this ami
much more the blushing aunt related
to (he Inquiring niece, und the latter
finally demn tided i
"Now ahow me (hla man's photograph, 1 know you've got it."
Aunt Willy almost lied ubout It, but
llnully produced u cabinet photograph.
She was of course wearing It over her
heart. It was the typical "professor"
or rather more so, and nfter u long
look nt the picture Susie hamled It
luifk with the reninrk:
"I don't like the looks of thnt man,
and I'm going to keep nn eye on tilings,
If be'doesn't snow more about corn
cures than physiology, then his photograph Is way off."
Aunt Milly wns shocked, upset nnd
angry, and her defense of the piufessor
wns vigorous and decisive. They wero
not uctually engaged ns yet, Btio admitted, but he was coming un soon for
a visit and would then doubtless propose for her linud. Ills letters were
beautiful, nnd no woman could read
iliem without nlmost reverencing the
writer. She refused to exhibit them,
but a few boms Inter fliialo hud ihe
meanness to Steal ami read every one,
Hhe snw thnt llm professor had neglected orthography nml grainiuur 111 hla
1 ii'lioollng, nnd tlie only beautiful tiling
she could discover about the epistles
was his statement that be sought for
n "luirie" to heat responsive to his owu.
It wus uu use lo say anything further
lo Aunt Mllly, She wiih "sot" 111 lilt
' matter ami loyal to the absent ono, A
' week Inter l'I'ofl'SBor Hidden arrived.
. Ho was n distinguished looking mau.
i As Susie looked him over she believed
I she could distinguish lilm from most
;  fakirs L.v lhe grease on his Lair am! lhe
set of bis ready luiulo coat. He wus a
i fairly ngl'OOttble maii of big wolds ami
; eccentric   ways.     He   hmln't   mine   to
i propose a Becrel mnri'lngo or an elope*
| mi'in, but io boldly declare his love In
j the face of overybody ami ask for Aunt
Willy's linud.   Aunt Floi'eiico was lu*
| clltied   to   Le   II e tit nil,  mul   Susie   had
1 nothing to say.   So it enmo nbout tlmt
the lovers pledged themselves, und the
tunrrlago day was sel for three months
nbend.    Susie's seeming Indifference
was iiimoyiiig io the happy hearted old
maid, who wanted everybody to rejoice
with her, but tlie only explanation she
received wus:
"I'm doing n lot of thinking Just now,
uml you wait till I get through, and I'll
congratulate yuu."
She hud a dim remembrance of huv-
lug seen a photograph of the professor
i before. She cudgeled her brains for a
! week, ami she still doubted as she took
: the train for New York one morning.
; On reaching the city she took a cub to
police headquarters, In Mulberry street,
ami when finally ushered Into the detective deportment she ustonished the
|,inspector in charge by asking to look
ut the rogues* gallery.
"Any particular pictureV be queried.
"Yes, sir; I want to find tbe photograph of the man who Is golug to
marry my aunt if I don't stop him,
though it Just occurs to aie that you
can't have pictures of professors here."
"Oh, yes, we have, scores of them,"
he replied. "Here's I'rofessoi' Marshall, who delivered lectures ou us*
tionouiy and robbed poBtofflcea the
sn me night; here's Professor Mussurln,
who made a study of plant life and
worked the gold brick racket at the
sume time; here's Professor Du Bols,
the eminent student of geology, who
went about New Hampshire studying
rocks in the daytime and stealing
horses at night; here also"—
"You needn't go any further," Interrupted Susie us she turned nwny, "Are
yon looking for Professor Du Bols?"
"I'd give $500 to see him ou a little
matter of business."
Susie said nothing on her return
home. It was only when tlm newspa.
pers containing an account of the arrest of the professor arrived by post
that she took Aunt Mllly out Into the
on-hard and handed them to her to
read and asked:
"What nre yon going to do about It?"
"Why—why," answered tho dazed
woman as she let the papers fall from
her ha ails and looked about her lu a
pitiful way, "I-I ought to faint awuy,
oughtn't iv"
"Yes. I think thnt would be the proper caper."
"Then I will'"
And slie did, and when she returned
to consciousness her romance waa
ended.

The region of the Amnion Is overrun
by an Interesting species of ants known
j as eaubns, They are represented as
the curse of the country because of
llielr social and military organisation.
Some observations upon the discipline
maintained by them were made by 0.
Bnrrlngton Brown:
We were greatly amused by a slngu*
inr struggle going on between a soldier
ant ami his working fellows at the
mouth of their underground nest. Borne
eight or ten of the workers clung on to
Lis legs and an tenure and tried to drag
him back as he oodeavorcd to come out
Of tho hole.
Although he was furnished with
huge mandibles, he did not lose his
temper nor try to bite them, nud It
was evident lh.it, although they de-
! milieu" him by force, thoy never nipped
him Laid.
During tho struggle thoy allowed two
oi three other soldiers to Haunter out
past them mid go roaming by thorn-
solves, it appeared uh ir ihis particular Individual had boliaved badly, was
under arrest and wus now being prevented from breaking barracks   Tho
end of the Htnitn.-le was not Witnessed
by us, und It will never he known who
gained the day, hut from all appear-

The second budget of English letters was received Ly thu pupils ot
Lunsdowno School on -Hominy, April

Mi. .1. i. Hughes was mi uuuumu

TLe Orlmsby pupils made two imge

To
il'lllisL.,   pupils also scut  Kit
assortment of views in book form
of Orlmsby and sun untitling places,
mul tt magazine, In which two letters, one written by Beatrice Heb-
dlge uud one by Edith Milne, were
published uuder tho heading "Colonial Correspondence.'1
Tlie letters are written in good
stylo mr suth young children, and
u is to he hoped ihe correspondence
mny he long continued und that the
children may not weary in their good
work, for certainly uo better scheme
Coil hi La devised than to let the
English people know what our Can-
adimi children ure like, and how
inuiii they think ot their own country.
One girl, in answering the oues-
tioii ns to whelher we hud bicycles
in Toronto, said, "I think we must
have millions id them, as you tun
hardly truss tlw street at noon or
at si}) o'clock with the bicycles. We
have hid bicycles nnd electric cars
for about ten years." Another girl
n ild, "IVe think it very funny the
l-'iii'lisl, idea that we go ubout on
snowsliues in the winter, und wear
furs a |fi*cat part of the lime. I have
never seen snowshoea except small
ones got up us souvenirs of Canada,
und very many people never wear a
fur tit nny time dining tho winter."
A boy wrote, "Wo have sent forty
teachers out to South Africa to
touch English to the Boer children,
and vie hope the English think the
Canadians ure all right now, since
they hnve done such good fighting
for thom In South Africa."
Altogether much good must be the
