Considerable Apprehension existed in
financial circles in reference to ihe Introduction of pennies Into Fernie. The
quarantine at the Victoria was the ini-
tneduite cause of the unloward incident
though Manager Gates disclaims nny responsibility. He says they were issued
in a poker game by nu Ontario man, but
at soon us they were identified were destroyed nnd lilt; issuer placed i" irons iu

It was the opinion of the health o[licet h that the smallpox hud been effectually stamped out last week and it wns so
recorded In these columns, The quarantine at the mines had been raised and
the feeling of uneasiness that pievailed
to some considerable extent had entirely
subsided. Ou Sunday morning, however, the report thai two cases had becu
located In two of the hotels was cou-
finned and the houses were promptly
lied up with all the inmates aud a general proclamatiod issued forbidding all
public gatherings and permitting no one
to leave the town under any circumstances until further notice. Such conditions are no doubt irksome and cause a
good deal of inconvenience but the situation calls for tbe most strenous measures to effect a complete stamping out
of the disease, Il is the duty ot all citizens to afford every assistance to the authorities in carrying out the terms of
the proclomation. We repeat that the
disease lias been in nearly every Distance
of an exceedingly mild type, there being
110 deaths and all of the victims are progressing as favorably as can be expected.
A talk with any business mail of Cranbrook will give ample evidence of ihe
general prosperity of the town. Their
business during the past three months is
far in excess of their business for a corresponding period last year. Thia tends
to demonstrate what The Herald bus
maintained from lhe starl. that Cranbrook, being the natural center of lhe
district for the transaction of all kinds of
business, business must necessarily gravitate thia way. Of course, even the
course of nature would have been contravened if Cranbrook business men
had been blind to their interests and the
interests of the district, but fortunately lor the growth and prosperity of Cranbrook they were not. On ihe contrary
they were energetic und ambitious.
They recognized the opportunities presented and left nothing undone to take
advantage of them. They kept increus*
i ig their stocks; the) bought better
qualities of goods and purchased In
larger quantities, thereby securing
lower rates. They studied their Held
and worked to please their pattous in
price and goods, And what is more,
after they filled their large stores to
overflowing, they did not sit down and
wait for the people. They went after
them. They used the columns of The
Herald; they printed circulars] they issued cards and tbey got over the field
themselves ami saw their customers personally. As a consequence the people
of South blast Kootenay know the Cranbrook merchants; mey have met them
ami talked with their., a£rt learned to
depend upon what they said about their
goods and their prices.
Then, again, it is easy to rench Cranbrook. One can get to Cranbrook from
anywhere in the district with less time
or trouble lhaii to any other point.
Cranbrook is the railway center ns well
as the commercial center. She is directly connected by rail wilb every town in
the district except Wasa nnd Fort Steele.
This, of course, is a big advantage, aud
oue that is telling week by week in the
favor of Cranbrook.
It is this combination ot circumstances
ami conditions that is making Cranbrook such an Important nml prosperous
place. So steady has been her growth,
so sure her ground, so wideawake her
people, so fortunate ber location, that
nothing can stop ber. Her growth is
now assured, and her present prosperity
is mild indeed to what will follow during
the next few years.
Fire Chief Resigns.
To Whom It May Concern:
I hereby resign my position ns chief
of the fire department of Cranbrook, for
the reason thut siuce accepting tbe position I have had to take sole charge of llie
apparatus, receiving al no time any assistance except what I paid for out of my
own pocket. I have drained the hose
several times, and endeavored to have
lhe apparatus in shape when needed.
It is now in the fire house filled with ice
and absolutely useless in case of a fire
since Friday night. I have served my
time, aud am willing for the honor to
pass to other shoulders
Vours Respectfully,

A Telephone Extension.
The Cranbrook Electric Light company, which has the telephone lines of
South East Kootenay, has some extensive improvements under consideration
for next spring. It is the intention of
the company to extend the present line
lo Marysvllle on to Klmberley, If the
St. Kugeue resumes operations in the
spring, a line will be constructed to
Moyie, and in all probability a Hue will
be built to lilko, Morrissey and Fernie.
An exchange will also be-put lu here at
CruNhrook, as the demand for it is
growing more pressing month by month.

A Ponnj Drenm.
The Herald editor had a funny dream
the other night. It seemed to him that
he came down town as urna! in tbe
moridng and went lo lhe postofBce aftr r
bin mail. Unlocking the box he found
it full of letters. "More duns," he said
with a weary sigh as he glanced 0V1 r
the addresses, nml dropped them one by
one Into bis capacious overcoal pockets,
preferring   to   read   tbe   amounts due in
tbe seclusion of bit editorial sanctum,
Arriving there be piled the letters on tlie
desk and beggn to open them. Hut ..
great surprise was in store fjr him. Instead of duns there were express at 1
post ollice unlets from town, from Fort
Steele, from M.nie, from Feir.le. in fact
from every point in Canada and the
United States where Tlie Herald is sei.l.
A comparison of the subscription books
with the letters and remittances show, d

For days the river bud been rifling.
The leveea above were gone for miles

"You must be nearly deud. What Is to

What 1 gwlne do?"
Ho stopped to reconsider. There wus
sflll another mile before bo could reach
tho point, and ho know there were only
u few old women In tho cabins tiiere,
und he could get uo help from thai
source. It was more than n mile back
to whore the uu-ii were working, nnd ho
was afraid to show blmsolf there after
having run away. Besides there was
not a moment lo lose. What was to be
iiiini? must bo done at ouco. Tho boy
knew that a great responsibility rested
upon hi in. If flu- llttlo opening wore
not Btoppod Immediately It was only n
question of n few moments before the
Wholo levee would be swept away.
He Blond up and looked about lilm.
Tiiere w*S no one In sight. He thought
be might find a bag of sand dropped by
n passing wagon, but then* was none.
With sudden purpose he turned uml sat
down over tlio llttlo crevlco through
which tho water en inc. The soft rnrlh
yielded to Ida weight, nnd wllh his
bauds and feet In? pressed It nbout him,
palling It (o make it firm.
The difficulty had been solved without his volition almost. It was only
nfter It was done thnt ho thought of
tho consoquences. lie calculator! in his
unreasoning way that it was 8 o'clock.
How long would he have to remain
there? For aught bo know till morning. Ho begun to suffer by and by
from his crautpod position, but he dared not move oven tlio lonst bit lost tho
crevice should open ngnln.
Ho could not toll how time pnsped.
Every minute Boomed nn hour. Ho
could not hear tho shouts of the men
below. There was only now ami then
the hoof of nn owl rising above tlie
roar of the water or the swish ns a
clod of earth was sucked Into the mad
currant Do wished bo had not run
away from bis work.
Ho begat) to get drowsy; his limbs
were almost numb, He wondered what
would become of him If ho should go to
sleep. If flu- waters should rise up
over tlio lovoe and drown blm and rula

The fifth Volume of "The lb-view ol
Historical Publications Uolutlng to
Canada,'; published by the 1 ntvoratty
of Toronto, uml edited by the professor of history (professor Wrong) and
the librarian of tlm university (Mr,
11. 11. Litngtou), bus just appeared,
and embodies u ruviow of all the
publications of 1U00 relating to
Canada. It is sumptuously printed,
Annually for live years u Volume
such as tbis bus been issued, it
seemed at first hardly possible that
each year a book of more than two
bundled pages could be filled with
review of tlie publications relating io
Canada appearing in a slnglu year.
Yet here it is. Nearly seteii pages
ure taken up with tlie brief lilies
alone uf these publications,
The       contents       are divided
conveniently into groups, uf
which "Canada's Relations to
the Empire" stands' first.
Nothing very important under this
head appeared In 1000, if wo except
the able hook on "Commercial Federation and Colonial Trade Policy,"
written by Professor Davidson uf lhu
University of New Brunswick, lie
proposes, in lieu of preferential
trade, that subsidies should he paid
in order to cheapen transportation
within the Empire. This would
amount to « practical preference, and
would do good nil round. Anything
more than ibis is unlikely, be thinks,
to  be effected.
The second section in Tin; Itovtow
is "The History of Catmdu," und
a huge number of works appbared
In 1000. There are same learned reviews on thu Cabot question. Tho
great edition of the "Jesuit Relations," just completed, culls for a
long article, A new and scholarly
Ufa of Champlaln, by M. Gravler,
bus appeared, and some attention is
paid lo works nu Hie diplomatic relations between Croat Britain and
the United Stales affecting Canada
A good many Inaccuracies und omission in the articles on Canadians
in the "Dictionary of National Biography" are pointed out.
In the third section, •"Provincial
und Local History," tbe French
shore question as ii affects Newfoundland is reviewed, tbe "tenth
island" being treated us really a
part of Canada. The Nova Scotia
Government bus published a new volume of archives throwing more light
upon the Acadian question. Judge
Routhlcr has written an interesting
history of the City of Quebec, and
Mr. John Ross Robertson's "Landmarks of Toronto" is noted. The
Northwest and British Columbia are
much in evidence, Mr. Becklos Will-
son's and I'r. llryce's lilBtorios of
the Hudson Buy Company being the
most important woi ks in the year.
Mr. Balllle-Grohman gives an.amusing account of sport and life In British  Columbia.
In the fourth section. "Geography, Economics and Statistics,"
numerous works on tho Klondike are
noticed. This review is the best
guide to the enormous literature upon this subject, In an earlier volume Br. G. M. Dawson, tho late Director of the Geological Survey of
Canada, described th.< Klondike literature      up   lo   the  time  of  writing-.
The publications of 1000 have not
lost the former sensational character.
The Klondike miners are, it appears,
admirers of Shakespeare. "Nearly
every where Shakespeare seems to bo

lhat had a full tot of Shakespeare

Tho progress of mining in Cnmuhi
nud Lhe work of the Cli-olugicol Survey aro described, und we bavo a record of travel in Oanaria, extending
from Labrador to llie Pacific Const.
Perhaps tho most bn-ezy book reviewed is "Buffalo Jones' Forty
Years' of Adventure." "Archaeology, Ethnology mid Folk-loro" and
"Education" comploln lha volutin'
Many publications relating to ihe
Indians in Canada appeared during
thu year. In connection with edit cation, renders are pleased to see a
sketch of tbe career and a complete
bibliography of Sir llonlol Wilson,

review nro most varied nnd Interesting. Nowhere else is llnie lo bo
found such a repertoire of Information regarding works on Cnnntltt,
Professor Wrong and his cptluhnra-
teiirs criticize frankly. Tho tono is
fair, however, and flunk criticism is
still so rare in thlil country as to
deserve u special mood of praise.

Charlemagne 1-aurler, tho representative of I.'Asstiinj.iioii, is tho half-
brother of the Premier— tho saine father, but child of u Hist wife of
(.'urolus Uuirier, tho Premier being
tha only son  by  the second  Wlfo.
Charlemagne Laurlor is 10 years
older than bin distinguished half-
brother, nnd he looks it, says The
Toronto Star, Ho la om of the silent
ones; a regular attendant at the sittings, but un uncommunicative ono.
There bo sits in his seat, day after
d.ty, his Iron-gray hair barely discernible behind tho heads of tho
otin-r occupants if the Opposition
benches, taking no part in the discussions and going and coming so
quietly as ordinarily to attract little, if any, notice. It is Interesting
',o wonder sometimes what Charlemagne Laurlor thinks about it all.
What fancies pans through the busy
brain beneath that Iron-gray thatch?
Docs lie ever mcdilalo on the tricks
Una ploys upon her mortal puppotfl?
Does he over envy tho distinguished
brotln-r so near to him by blood ties,
so tar above him in the political
world? lioi-s he over «Mirier at tho
partiality of tho fickle goddesn who
makes one brother tho iirti. Commoner iu all UlO land und ol tin- oUn-r an
obscure, silent, buck bencher? Dooa
he ever wish lo exchange places with
hln distinguished hnlf-bruthor, to
barter iiie peaceful qttlol of liis semi-
obscurity for lhe trials and tribulations, lho roWnrda and worries, of
those who sit In tho florcn while light

llirough tlio brain of thin quid. Htilu
mini on tho back tienches, but it Is
doiiin fill if 11,- older brother begrudges tho younger his greatness, if
ho dots he gives no sign.
Ami the Premier? To lis brother ha
is ns gonial iis to the other mom-
burs, probably more so, hut lho Premier of Canada mnkiH no display of
hia emotions. The oilier doy, wearying possibly of the seemingly endless
budget debate, lho Pivml. r crossed
over to iiie Opposition side and wandered up through the I tbyrluth of
scuts to where bis half-brother was
sitting. One band ho placed with a
caressing motion on the older man's
shoulder, while with the other ho
shook bonds, dust a few words.Were
exchanged, nnd then thu first Commoner in Canada came back to his
place. What did Ihe Pr. mi.-r say ill
thnt brief interview? Probably nothing very much, but ho i. nrie for tho

The ereir of the American brig Nemo
had been paid off at Cadiz niul as mate
J wns looking fur another berth whon
n young ami good looking man who
mas strolling about the wharf ns If In
in-arch of some oue accosted me with
(in Inquiry ns to my capability as a
pnvlgntor ami later on asked mc to accompany lilm to a cafe for n talk. As
Rhe young man was a Brazilian and a
landsman my curiosity was naturally
aroused. He was rather slow In coin-
■ng to the point, being evidently desirous of sizing mc up. ami I had begun
to grow a little Impatient when ho
leaned across the table and said:
; "Senor, I have decided to trust you
tind tell you the truth. It Is nn expedl-
lion to carry off a young lady."
"If It Is a scheme to abduct a woman,
2 want nothing to do with it," I refilled.
"Do not mistake me, senor. I nm n
{Brazilian, I am from one of the highest families In our country. I am In
love with a Spanish lady, a young lady
pf highest birth, but her people are opposed to our marriage. I nm not only
lu lovo witli her, but she returns my

Bkflston,   She hns vowed to the Virgin
that she will never give her hnnd to nn-
•tbei.   Indeed, she is ready to die if
the cannot marry me."
"And why do tier people object?"  I
iske.i. thinking that ir his looki did
not belle his character any father in
Spain might be pnuui of blm for n son-
"it was n feud between our fathers,
lienoi, partly political uml partly business, There wns bud blood, an.l. th.uigh
my father illed yenM ngo. Hon llaiiil-
Hoi miii holds his bitterness, lie has a

"Why. (bis Pon ltnmlne7 In n gov-

"lie Is governor of the province of

"If be Is ili-h mnl powerful and op-

Senor Da Cosln, as be liml given mo

"in youi' country, seiior, whnt do they

"The lovers? Well, If the old folks

"Tour pny win he commensurate
with the risks, st-tior. Let us waste no
more time. Set forth at once and Uml
a craft."
At the end of another half hour wc
bad the details arranged as far ns possible, and 1 was ready to begin my
shure of the work. Within 84 hours 1
innl found u sehtioner yacht from the
Mediterranean, an Kugllsh built craft
whose owner had tiled of playing sailor anil left her lu the hands of a broker for sale, It required a week to repaint, repair, tlml a evow ami put provisions aboard, ami Da Costa was ready
wlili $3 wherever there was need for
(1, It was given out that a yacht had
been bought for a resident uf tbu
Azores mid was tn be delivered there,
nud there was uo trouble about her
| Willie knowing, of course, (bat Ma
Costa was ll) Cadiz, It appeared that
! lion Rn in Inez hml neither Imprisoned
his daughter nor set an extra waleii ou
her movements. To dodge her duenna
aud eseape from the house and grounds
nml make her way to an appointed rendezvous must have been a difficult mat-
tor, but she accomplished It, and two
hours after dark one evening a boat
brought the pair of lovers aboard. Ten
minutes Inter we were under way. A
fairer girl 1 never looked upon, and sho
was as brave as she was fair.
We loft port with ti fair wind and
carried It all night as we headed out
into the Atlantic, and the yacht slipped
along as if driven by steam. We bad
got awuy so quietly that 1 did not look
for pursuit, but daylight had scarcely
broken when we found a steamer lu
our wake. As 1 afterward ascertained,
the girl had been missed early In tho
night, the sailing of the yacht discovered, and while one steamer was bended for the Canaries n second took the
course for Bio and wns soon overhauling us.
At noon the steamer enme up with
us.    The brother was aboard of her,
while the father had taken the other
route.    She came slashing alongside,
I with shouts and yells from her crew,
, thinking to make an easy enpturo, hut
1 as there were no armed men  aboard
she quickly sheered off before our rl-
: lies.    Within the next two hours she
, made three different attempts to crash
! Into us, but each time our lire, which
', was not meant to kill, drove the men
j from the pilothouse nnd confused all.
■ Then she settled down to pursue us,
; and, ns a matter of fact, she hung to
us for 48 hours.   She had come out unprepared with fuel or provisions, however, and at last had to turn nhntit nnd
head for Cadiz.  By the time she reached port It was too late to think of further pursuit, and we were left to make
our voyage in peace and land our passengers In due time at Ilio.    I learned
that  Oon  Bamlnez and  tbe Spanish
government kicked up n great row over
the affair, nnd there was a lot of corro*
, spondeiice nnd demands and red lire,
, but On Costa won bis bride, nnd tho
rest of us got safely away with our re-
, ward, and tho obstinate old fnthei bad
nothing to do but chew tbe rag and
, yell "Carainba!"

Died   WlilatHiitf.
Dr. William Rrauss in The Journal
of Nervous and Mental Diseases describes the case of a Polish herdsman,
117 years of age. weighing '-.30 pounds,
who some months previous to an accident innl suffered from apoplexy resulting In, left hemiplegia. lie wns
slowly regnlnlng the use of his arm
nii.l leg when he was struck by a train
niul was found unconscious on the
track with three scalp wounds.   Thero
was a depressed fracture of the skull
three Inches above and one inch behind the left ear. He was Immediately
trephined and the depressed bone removed.
About 10 o'clock nt night he began
to whistle, not. however, the "popular
songs of the day." but the whistle cnlls
he was accustomed to use In calling or
driving his docks. Ho would continue
whistling for about one minute, then
would cense for live or ten minutes
ami kept this up at regular Intervals
mull he died. At no time was It possible to distinguish nny melody. Tho
sounds were of the same pitch ami Intensity and of the same character*
'I'hey were audible throughout tho
ward nml attracted the attention of pa*
thtiis nml attendants. To the phy-
stolons in attendance it wus a strange
experience to hear these whistle calls
coming from a patient In a state of
unconsciousness, it was impossible to
rouse the paileut at any (line before
or   after   the   accident,   nnd   lie   died,

i'eel regarded nil light litterateurs ns
tr I flora nud poets with their uuproflia-
ble pursuits as the butterflies of tho
li ilium species. Cnrlyle had prompted
Millies to press Tennyson's claims for
a pension. TbO rival claimant was
Bberldnn Knowles, the popular dramatist.
I'eel consulted Mlines ns to the course
which he ought to take, nccompiinylng
the appeal by the statement Hint for
himself he knew absolutely nothing
either of Mr. Tennyson or Mr. Knowles.
"What!" snld Milnes. "Have you
never seen the uamo of Sheridan
Knowles on n playbill'/"
"No," replied Peel.
"And hnve you never read a poem of
"No," was again the answer, accompanied by a request that Milnes would
let lilm Bee something which Tennyson
had written. Accordingly Milnes sent
to Sir Robert Tee] tho two poems of
"I.ocksley Hall" nnd "Ulysses,"
Students of the Canadian situation cnn best understand tha magnitude ol the heritage the British in
the pnsi have been sit cureless about,
nnd are now at this day growing so
solicitous for, by comparing the
Canadian areas with those ot the
United Kingdom itself nml the European nations, All Britain uud Ireland, lor example, contain 120,030
square miles; England uud Wales,
58,811; Set.i land. 20,785; Ireland,
82.682, and the islands, 802. This
entire area, il it could bo set down
In Ontario, would leave not very fur
from half the Province still untouched — plenty of room, at nny rule,
for another England, Wales and Ireland. The whole of the United
Kingdom nud Ireland, if they could
be dumped Into British Columbia,
would take up less than a third of
that Province leaving an unoccupied
area big enough to accommodate the
same twice over, with a trifle of 20,-
000 squnro miles to spare.
Ontnrio alone, 210,050 squnro
miles, is bigger than Prance, 210,-
000 square miles. Germany,     212-
000 square     Dillon;     Italy,     1 14,000
squuro miles; Spain, 182,758 square

square miles, nre bigger than    Aug-
tliu Hungary, 280,811 square miles,
Sweden ami Noiwuy, 2HH.771 Square

Kurope put together, addod to either
01 tin! above Tlio biggost State iu
Europe is Russia, containing about
2,n-l t,hoo square inib's. Our Northwest    Territories,    000,000    squuro

j In summing up, one must not overlook tho   immense    possibilities     in
' commerce   In connection with    this
, vast territory, Wn must not forget
the valuable wealth In our forests,
in gold, silver and other minerals,
our extensive fisheries, und huge

Trouble at Fernie.
It is said that the Crow's Nest coal
company Is in a tangle with the government over the allotment of lands in
the town of Fernie. The matter was
pending for sometime, and during the
Interval the coal company continued to
sell property, giving contracts fjr the
same. When It came time for tbe gtv
enimeii: to make Its choice by blocks,
tbe lirst selection was the block on
which the Hoyal hotel, the coal company's handsome oflice buildings and
other valuable improved properties were
located. Tbe coal company then offered to pay over to the government the
money received for tbe lots, but the
government say. "No. We want pay
iu accordance to present valuations."
One fourth of the town of Fernie, to
which the government Is entitled under
the law. at present valuations, would
mean that the coal company would
have to pay several hundred thousand
dollars to secure release of the property
from the government. Naturalv the coal
company proteits, and now say tbat
tbey will go before tbe provincial house
and secure legislation to give them
this desired relief. That Is why many
people think that there is a lot of fun
Prom tlie Marysvllle Trlliiine.
It ii strange that there are people
who seem to feel distressed over the
success of any movement. It has always been the case, and In all probability will remain so- They seem 10
be natural horn knockers, and are
never latbBfd unless they are doing
something that will prove Injurious
to Home one- Take m irysville, for Instance. Prom the Inception of tbe plan
to errect a smelter In this town there
have been people who have been full
of doubt from the start. First they did
not believe anything would be done.
Next, th * getting out the rock was just
a bluff, Then, when work on the building started tt was just a scheme to sell
town lots, and as one large building
after another assumed shape, and
thousands of dollars were being expended, It was a trick to sell tne mine.
N iw that vast sums are being invested
lu machinery, much of which is on the
way, there arc still pessemlstlc knockers who pay the smelter will never
blow In. None of these people give
reasons. In fact they have none except
their lnaio cussednesi.
Yesterday, after the train arrived In
Cranbrook from the west, The Tribune
man had a telephone Interview with K
I). Saunders, piesldent of the board of
control of the company, who had just
arrived from Spokane, His statement
will be of tutorial to tbe public, although It will not bring much joy to
the heart of the kno.kers,
"You can  say   for   me,"   said   Mr-
Saunders, "that no money will be
spared or time wasted In pushing the
ameltlug plain io an early completion.
We have severnl car loads of machinery
pin chased and on the way to Marysvllle.
The material foi finishing the work is
coming In rapidly, and we do not anticipate anyseitt'us delay iu pushing
coustructiou 10 an early linish. And
as soon us it ii possible the smelter will
be blown In. The smallai Is uot being
built at a speculation or an e*j.er luitut
Tbe men back of this movement have
been Interested iu mining In llritish
Columbia for years, and lu smelters also We are not novices at the business
We have a valuable mine with a vast
body of ore. To handle that ore satli-
factorlly we had to build a smelter,
We have taken this course and other
lead mines will have to follow, lor conditions make It necessary for them to
smelt their own ore. What U more our
smelter will be a success We h;
taken everything Into consideration
ami kuow whai we are doing '
It Is perhaps well at this time to get
down to facts ami figures as to what
Is being done In Marysvllle. To those
who do not live In the Immediate neigh'
borhood of our town It may he of In
terest 10 know exactly what Is going on
towards building the first smelter [n
South Fast Kootenay am) the Hist re
fluery In the Dominion of Canada
(fill), lino have already been spent
In the const ruction In buildings
Humes etc. 800,000 already spent. 8I3,\)0I
have been expended on getting out lhe
timber and framing the buildings at
the smelter site. 810,000 hav
been expended in locating and
constructing the water Hue or tlutne
which will cany the power from the
upper waters of Maik Creek to the
powerhouse on the banks of the Sl
Marys river, at which point there la
800 feet of a straight fall and 186 feet
of a gradual fall making a total of 331
feet and' generating 000 horse power
Then in addition SijU.ooo or more
haa been expended In purchasing the brick, cement and machinery
necessary to put tbe plant in running
To those who have not visited Marysvllle during the last two months the
progress made would be a matter of
astonishment. Tne roaster building
2fi0 feet long, ny Oil feet wide Is a matter of hnge construction In Itself. Thl«
building is practically finished and
.1 waits only the arrival of the corrugated Iron, the frame and wood work
being completed. The sulphide build
Ing, sixty feet high, Is done. The
power house is ready for the Installation
of tbe wheels and the transmitter building la finished. In fact as a high oQIcial
of the company said to a Tribune man
the other day. 'Give us the material
and we could be ready to blow In, In
sixty days."
