woik we bave discovered tbe extension

This is so recent a discovery that, at
this time, it is impossible to estimate its

deslie to raise your expectations with
reference to tbis too high, but ill justice
lo the shareholders, to wbum I understand tbis report will be submitted, I
cannot let its discovery go unannounced.
As I continually have expressed in my
weekly reports, I have always lell sanguine thatt be continuation of the ore deposits was to be found, and 1 regard this
as u cmifit illation of my belief."

Improving On Nature
Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makes
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We nnt only make perfect fitting;
garments which set off a ^ood figure and improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling  at less than double our price.

Last Friday the people of Cranbrook
were shocked to receive the Intelligence
of the sudden demise ot Mr. J. W. II,
Smythe, manager of lhe Canadian llauk
of Commerce at Greeuwood. He bud
beeu in ill health for two weeks previous
lo his deaih, but the day before seemed
tn be rallying, Theu be took a turn lor
tbe worse, relapsed into a state of unconsciousness, and 12 hours later died
peacefully and without pain.
J. \V, II. Smythe was a youug man fur
v *in ut tins I lllt! ris*sPu',s'l,le positions he bad heltl, as
he was only 3; years of age. He entered
the employ of the Canadian Hunk if
Commerce about 14 years ago, and his
natural ability in the busiuess he had
adopted secured lor bim rapid promotion. When the Craubrook hruuch was
opened lit. Smythe was sent here from
the east as its tirsl manager. He came
as a youug uiau and au easterner, aud 111
lo days he was a westerner iu every
sense, -^>uick to adapt himself to cou-
dt'. ons, » good judge of human nature.
uutirlug in his energy, affable ami cum-
pauloQahle at all limes, be wou fur him-
■ell a Urge circle uf friends, and for tbe
I bark a strong following. Later he established the brunch at I'ort Sleele, and
remained in chaise uf the twu until the
management selected him as the best
muu lu lake charge of Ibe Greeuwuud
branch. There he made a great record'
antl rapidly increased the busiuess of the
bank, and, as he bad doue In South Kust

Iu consequence of the lateness ofthe
season and the depth of snuw upon the
high hiountulus.Thcputcrop would sug*
it that the goverument allow an ex-
si on uf time fur the performance of
assessment work. This is really necessary as many claim owners cannot possibly get up to their work iu time In
1&J7 for similiar reasons gold commissioners throughout the province were
allowed to exteud the time for a period
of 60 days, from lhe 17th of July for the
completion of assessment work where
tbey bad cause to believe the claims
were Inaccessible. Therefore, we claim
that pruspectors should again be allowed
this advantage.

South Pork of Toby creek on Sunday to
COUlUience work on the Juneau gioiip.
They will cut a good trail of several miles
to the group, and intend doing sufficient
woik lo show llie ledge up properly.
Last season they traced the ledge for
uhoul 301^1 feet and uucoveied two leet of
clean ore. It is slated that Ihere ate
vend parties anxious to get bold uf
this group.
I'rof. Robinson ami his men came
down from Jumbo creek lusl week, where
they have already accomplished 27 feet
ork. They will go up lhe bill shortly to start work on the Leora, upon
hleh has been fuund tbe greatest copper discovery iu Hast Kooieuay. The
work doue witb a pick uncovered a good
loot of solid chalcodyrlte ore, A pecuh-
,r feature of this tichore is that at the
grass routs there is absolutely no copper
status to he fuund on the ledge, which
carries 32 per cent copper values. While
there is only one foot of ore uncovered
1 he iiidicaliutis are tbat it is much wider.
Tu prove the width uf the vein, a crosscut tunnel is to he run which will cut the
ledge at a depth of 20 feel and drain olf

cleared up $2$,000 in copper slncks. If
