LUMBERMEN'S CONVENTION
The convention ol the Mouuiaiti 1
Lumbermen's assentation thai opens
in this city tomorrow (Kruiay), is
one of the most Important gsrtbetings
ol tho kind eu-r held in tins city.
Cranbrook is iho oentel ot a very
huge lumbering industry and all our
people are thoroughly alive to tho
Importaacc ol tins Induslr) '" Wie
welfare of tins community. Consequently they fully appreciate the
consideration shew n Cranbrook by
tbe holding ol ih,' annual convention
within its limits and one and all mil
he anxious to do all in Unit powci
to make 1 be visit oi ttu- lumbermen
in every respect an enjoyable one.
it Is expected thai Luc business ol
List) lumbermen will take up the
groatei pan ol two days, the sessions being held tn the Cianliionk
hotel committee rooms.
A feature ol this convention will be
tho grand hall on Friday night in
the Auditorium, tendered the visitors
by the lumbermen of East Kootenay
A committee Ol ladies have under
taken the    task of decorating     tin'
Auditorium fot the occasion.  Nolan's
five piece orchestra is coming in
from Spokane to supply the music
and supper will be SMVCd at the
Cianiuook hotel, conveyances being
provided to take the ladies to and
from tbe Auditorium and tho hotel.
Upwards ol -hhi Invitations have been
lulled I or the occasion, which will
undoubtedly prove to be a most enjoyable affair
It is anticipate.! that there will he
a huge influx oi lumbermen from all
sections of the pro.u.ce covered by.
the Mountain Lumbermen's association. The lumber situation is pnr-
tieiitaily bright just now, reports
from all quarters indicate n continuance "t activity, with belter prices
ruling. The situation is well described by Mr. Otto l.nehiiiund, president of the Mountain Lumbermen's
association, in the course of a recent letter addressed to the editor of
Ihe Western Lumberman, us follows:
Sir: In responding to your request
to give you my views as to the outlook for the lumber business, it
seems to me that not within my
recollection has tlm universal wish
for a happy and prosperous New
Year had a greater assurance of realization (him that for the year 1010.
The recovery from the sudden and all
but calamitous depression which |
struck the I'nitcd States and Canada
in IflW, has been, according lo the
best financial statists, nothing short
Ol phenomenal.
Nowhere in the world is a greater
opportunity presented to benefit from
Mus recovery than right here in Canada. With the tide of immense immigration already well established,
,iii-| growtn to an extent as to astonish the most optimistic, the future
11 assured. farmers with
money, from tho I'nitcd States and
Other countries, are taking up lands
even in the remotest district*. The
Influx is not restricted to a few |nv-
ored localities, bui is broad and general. With irrigation, and with
more diversified farming, the danger
ol 1 one crop failure is being rapidly
eliminated, thus establishing a
■      itabtllty ol prosperity
Ever] line ol business will, of
course, be benefitted by this stability, ami not tile least of these will be
the lumber business. Should this
coming year give us a crop as great
—ami it  should be greater because Ol
the Increased acreage—we nre sure to
see an unexampled year—not only
one, hut a succession ol such. Prices
of other commodities appear to have
been advancing rather more rapidly}
than has hoeii the case with lumber,
which has not yet reached the level
if 1006 ami 1907, but (here is every
expectation that prices will, by
spring, exceed the best yet obtained,
and why should this not be the ease
with the greatly broadening demand1'
No one business lias suffered more
greatly from senseless overproduction
than that ol our industry. If we
have no! learned wisdom from the
lesson taught, keeping production
more in line with the demand for consumption, we are ourselves to blame
if we do not secure our share in   the
general prosperity,

Yours truly,
Otto l.achrr.und
A review ot (be lumbering opera
lions during the past year, shews
that the total output in I9W was
about M.ii.iiiio.inio fret, which, at
$11 a thousand, gives a return of
118,000,000. It is estimated that
half of this lumber ix consumed with*
in the province, one-third is sent to
the prairies, and the remainder Is exported. Conditions In the lumbering
and logging industry an* better today
than they have been for the past two
years, and tbe outlook for 19)0 trade,

On Monday morning last Cran-
brook's public school children assembled I01 ihe lirst time in their
new quarters, in- handsome and substantial square cen nt and brick
building with tower, that has been
erected on Cranbrook street. This
fine building, in every respect a
redii to the city ol Cranbrook and
to Ihe board of school trustees, under whose auspices it was elected,
occupies a whole block, fronting on
Cranbrook street
The new building is ol two storeys
with cement basement, covering an
area of lGWl85\
The basement is divided into three
parts, tho south east portion being
devoted to a boys' lavatory and play
room, the center portion to a heating chamber, containing three boilers
connected with the Pease Economy
steam heating apparatus, which
heats the entire building, supplied by
Ihe Pease Waldon Co., «f Toronto,
and the remaining portion is devoted
to tin- girls' lavatory nnd play room, ,
the dimensions of the girls' and boys''
lavatories and play rooms being the
same, the lavatories being roughly 1
21x4.1 feet and the play rooms, 14x80
Separate staircases g|\e access to
the basement from the main floor to
both the boys' and 'hi- girls' de-
partments.
There are three spacious entrances to the main floor, two large,
well-lighted and uell-venl Mated class
looms on the west side and three on
tbe rast, opening out on to a M loot
hallway, the full length ol the
building. The second story is a duplicate »f the first. The tower contains two rooms, one lor Ihe principal, Milfi feet, and the other for the
trustees' uf the same site. On Ihe
second floor provision is made for a
teachers' room and lavatory. Ihe
walls are finished throughout in plaster with a wainseottiiiK. -Tii" finished    with Kirhjt cement   and enamel
The building is lighted throughout
by electricity, tbe wiring for which
is completed, hut the fixtures have
not as yet been installed Drinking
fountains are provided on each
floor. Wide double staircases at .
either end provide easy and safe
means of access lo the second story.
Throughout, the building may be said
to be a model in respect of light and
ventilation. The class rooms are all
spacious, well lighted an>l ventilated
upon the most modern principles
There are, as a matter ol fact, HO
windows in ihe building, those in
the class rooms being d'H"x3'6."
The class rooms on the wcsl side are
26'9"x35", with 13 foot rollings and
those on the east side 45'x8,,x32'8"
and iWjtMV.
Provision is mads for Die installation of an admirable tire escape system, which, when installed, will adequately provide for the safety ol the
children 111 case of an outbreak ol
fire, a remote possibility in view of
the nature ol the structure.
The contract for the erection ol
this building was awarded last April, a start was made with construction early in May and ly the terms
of the contract it should have been
Completed by September lath last
However, the contractors were dilator y and the end of ihe year had
coma with no Immediate prospect ol
the building being ready (or occupation.       The trustees lieu took   the
drastic step of ousting tbe contractors and placing the work still to be
done in the hands of a local contract 01, (i. ll. Leask, under the supervision of Mi. Hugh Cl.nk, ns clerk
of the works.
Work has been rushed since, night
and day, and whilst ihe building was
Wot entirely in shape for occupation
on Monday morning, sufficient advance had been made to permit nf
Ihe several class, s oerup.ing the necessary rooms.
Whilst the foregoing is a very
crude, unscientific description of the
really splendid new school building,
that will from now on rank among
the city's most valued assets, it will
suffice to give the parents of its future occupants a fair idea of the
provision made for their comfort and
convenience.
When   tlie   public school   re-opened
Monday the attendance was    as
follows
Division    1.—L.     J.       Cn

Division 2.—Miss Caldwell,

Division   7—(High school)- Miss
Crandall      10
Total         308
Vhen the public school closed lor
the Christmas vacation there were
enrolled 266 scholars, so that the
school opens with a considerably increased attendance. This was to
have been expected in view of the
greatly improved sccommodation now
available, and, it may lie stated, it

school trustees, from now on. to
strictly enforce the compulsory attendance act. In this connection attention must be directed to the admirable high school facilities now
available in Cranbrook. The attendance at present fa not what it should
be, nor what it must be, if the high
school is to be perpetuated In addition to unexcelled school facilities

TO TREAT ZINC ORE
FRENCH    FINANCIER I NVESTl
GATING CONDITIONS IN
KOOTENAY.
Canada may have an industry en-
tiiely new to the Dominion as a
suit of a visit now being paid to
East Kootenay, B.C., by Eduardo
Rlondel, an eminent financier of
France, who is president ol the Canadian Metal company, which operates the Blue Bi-ll mine at Rlondel,
M. C. The new industry, If ft ma-
tcrallics will be the establishment,
probably at Rlondel, of works tor the
reduction of zinc ores into zinc oxide,
a property similar to white lead, used
in the manufacture of paint.
Some yean ago the Canadian Metal
company hi-carnc interested in the
zinc mining business of East Kootenay and built a zinc smelter at
Frank, intending to manufacture
spoiler bill the plant did not prove a
success and a ehnnge of management
coming in, it was decided to abandon
the idea of smelting zinc ores In Canada and the smelter lliere has been
dismantled.
Since the abandonment ol the
smelting idea, the zinc ores ot East
Kootenay. of which the mines of
that district yield large quantities,
have had fo be marketed in tho
States against a twenty per cent
duty ami a treight rate for more
thousand miles.      Thut the

profile of   mining zinc are so greatly
diminished that some means of rendering tho business reasonably profitable is being sought. Mr. Rlondel
stopped in Frank the first of tho
week en route to East Kootenay
from Paris and to a press correspondent gave the first information to
reach the public relative to his new
plans in that respect.
Mr. Riondel stated that he had an
interview in the east with Professor
Ingalls, the noted expert in zinc and
that Professor Ingalls strongly recommended the reduction of zinc ores
to zinc oxide as the best solution of
tho problem confronting the zinc industry in East Kootenay. Mr. Riondel will go thoroughly into the question and, he stated, should he find the
conclusions of Professor Ingalls correct and that the process he proposes
will yield better profits than may be
obtained otherwise, he will establish
a plant somewhere in East Kootenay
but most probably at the town which
bears his name and where the Blue
Bell mine is situated.
Should the proposition materalirc
there seems little doubt it will prove
a vast benefit to the mining industry
of East Kootenay, where the presence of zinc in the ores and dealing
with it at a profit has been a vexed
question for years, for the relief of
which a campaign is being waged at
the present time to secure a bounty
from the federal government similar
to that paid on the production of
lead.
Mr. Riondel stated also, that a reorganization of his company has recently been effected and an assessment levied on the shareholders by
which $250,000 was raised for tbe
purposes of liquidating outstanding
obligations and providing working
capital. The company's indebtedness
has all been paid off and it is now
on a cash basis.
Among other matters which will
engage Mr. Riondel's attention wbilo
in East Kootenay will he that ol
authorizing and arranging for a
doubling the lead production ol the
Blue Bell mine.

EAST KOOTENAY MINING REVIEW
Below we reproduce from the Nelson News, Mr. E. Jacobs' review of
mining operations in East Kootenay
for tlie past year:
The estimated value ol the mineral
production ol this district for 1909
is nearly JlltO.UOO more than that ol
1908. There appears to have been a
decrease in the production of silver
to the extent of about 01,000 ounces
and of lead nearly 8,400,000 pounds,
beside a small decrease in placer
gold. TllCBO together made the district's total for metalliferous minerals mined in the former year show
smaller than that of 1008, but a
substantial increase in the production of coal ami coke more than compensated for this increase, thereby
bringing the year's total up to a
higher amount than  that of 1!!08.
The Consolidated .Mining and
Smelting company's St. Kugcnc mine
was operated on a similar large
scale to that of other recent years.
There was little out of the ordinary
marking its further development and
production; no noteworthy additions
to power plant and other equipment
of mine and concentrating mill, both
of which are understood to be ample
and effective. One change may be
mentioned, though, viz., that the
tailings [nun the mill, heretofore
discharged into tho lake, are now delivered into railway curs ami used by
the railway company as ballast for
its permanent way.
The vicissitudes of the Sullivan
Group mine and the lead smelter at
Marysvillc have been many during the
two years past, but there now appears to he a reasonable prospect of
resumption of production of ore
from the mine, even though it be decided that the smelter shall remain
idle. As announced in the Daily
News a week or two ago, the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company of Canada has secured the mining properly on a long-term lease
with an option to purchase control
of the Sullivan Group Mining Company, Ltd., now held by the Federal
Mining and Smelting company, the
latter being a subsidiary company of
the American Smelting and Hefining
company. There is known to be in
the Sullivan mine a large deposit of
lead-zinc-silver ore, in connection
with the smelting of which the large
experience and extensive reduction
facilities of the Consolidated company will stand it in good stead and
make for a successful outcome to
this its latest enterprising movement.
Two smaller mines, also in the vicinity of the Moyie lake, arc the Society Girl and Aurora. At the Society Girl operations during tbe year
were restricted to the extension ol a
cross-cut tunnel, now in a distance of
nearly 1,000 feet, progress having
been at tbe rate of about "ill feet per
month. Drilling is by hand, and 11
men arc employed. Surface Improvements made in l9lt!t include the
erection of a new blacksmith shop
and powder house, at a cost ol about
$1,000, and the expenditure of a simitar sum on making a new road.
Those In charge ol the Aurora did
not supply any information concerning progress during tbe year. It is
known, though, that a second tunnel
has been driven :ibO feet nt a vertical depth of l"iO feet below the old
tunnel, ami that there is good reason
to expect ore will also be found at
this lower level. The work dona on
both the Society Girl and the Aurora
if ot such a nature as to merit success.
Sonic 3,000 tons of ore were mined
at the North Star, Kimberley, during 1908, and shipped to Trail. A
few hundred feel of underground development work was done and much
surface trenching The company's
operations for its last fiscal year resulted in a profit ol only about
$9,800 having been made, the low
grade of ore ami low prices of silver
and lead preventing better results.
In Windermere mining division, the
B. C. and Tilbury packed about Km
tons of high-grade ore from the mine
to the end of the sleigh road preparatory to hauling it to the river, for
shipment thence to the smeltery.
Several other properties in a position
to produce ore are awaiting the construction of the promised railway
from Golden to Cranbrook before resuming operations.
There was little productive mining
done in Golden mining division,
northeast Konteiiny, though both th
Giant nnd Monarch had some at ten
tion.
Placer mining was only on a small
scab', chiefly on Perry and Wild
Horse Creeks. On Hull river, where
a company expects to later placer
mine profitably, grading the richt-of-
way for the big flume in connection
with thp intended lfl.MHi horse power
hydroelectric development, for power
and light purposes in the surrounding
district, has been further proceeded
with
Coal and Coke—There was nn advance in coat mining in Southeast
Kootenay during l'"1'1 respecting
which some particulars have already
boon given. Kurt her improvement
may be looked for in 1810, for there
fs an available market for thr whole
of the coal and coke all three operating companies can produce. The
Crows Nest Pass Con I company has
a large and eonstnnl customer for
its ronl in the Great Northern Railway company, which, together with
the Oranby Consolidated M. S. A p.
Co., during the year or two Inst past.
has ben in control, or has been gen
erally understood to have been. The
Granny company is the C, N. I1
company's largest customer lor coke,
the Consolidated M. and S. companj
taking practically all the remainder
of this product sold in Canada. Towards the close of the year
there was a change in the general
management at the mines, hut at the
time of writing the name of the successor of J. D. llurd, who lately retired, had not been made public. The
company has bad tbe benefit of the
services Of .lames AshWOrth, of Manchester, England, a well known coal
mining expert, who has been on tho
properly for several months. Recently the output ol coal was enlarged, alter a temporary reduction in
the quantity produced. Additions
to power and handling equipment
have been of such a nature as to
provide much greater facilities for
operation of the collieries, which
should have a prosperous year III
1'Hn. Labor difficulties, which pre-1
vented some of the Crows Nest collieries from being worked during |
three months of the late spring and
early summer of MOD, did not affect:
the Crows Nest Pass Coal company,
which made its own agreement with |
ts miners ami other employes, and
continued its operations with practically no interruption.
There is little to add to the refer-
ice made earlier to ihe Hosmei'
Mines, Ltd., the opening of its mine
mid the provision of power and handling facilities having been well advanced before the year under review
was entered upon. The Canadian
Pacific Railway company is a con-
stand customer for much of the coal
produced here, other than that made
into coke. Tbe latter product goes
the Consolidated Mining and
Smelling company's smeltery at
Trail.
The Corbin Coal and Coke company's colliery has already been
notified  in  some detail.      The output
f this colliery finds ready sale in
the nearby State of Washington. The
head office of the company is in
Spokane, Wash., and its management
also has intimate associations with
important railway enterprises,
which ensure a regular market for
itll the coal the colliery has to sell
to them. The development- of this
enterprise is, therefore, a decided advantage to the district and province, since it in no way interferes
with the sale of the production of
previously established British Columbia collieries. The large quantity
of coal rendered accessible by developments during 1009, and its excellent quality, combine to make unusually favorable the outlook for considerable enlargement of the operations and production at the Corbin
colliery.
Of Ihe great area of undeveloped
coal-bearing land and the enormous
tonnage of coal estimated to be
available in the upper Elk river district, this including Fording river,
Green Hills, and other parts embraced within the boundaries given by
I). It. Howling, in his latest published report to the Geological Survey
<( Canada, little can he said other
than of a general nature. There
have not yet been provided means of
transportation for heavy machinery
ami other requisites for the extensive
development of large coal mines, so
prospecting work only has thus tar
been done in this part of the Crows
Nest country.
A general idea of the coal resources of the Crows Nest country
in British Columbia may be obtained
from the following figures taken
from Mr. Bowling's estimate: Lower
Crows Nest, 2.'Ui square miles of
coal lands, containing 22.(190,000,01)0
tons of bituminous coal, upper Elk,
IIP square miles, containing 11,000,-
080,000 tons; total, 370 square
miles, containing 36,000,000,000
tons. As the aggregate output ot
all years to date is only about
6,500,000 tons, it will be seen that
there is still enough coal untouched
to keep fairly well supplied the present generation within market reach
of it. Of the aggregate gross-pn>-
d »c tii in above mentioned about
2,000,000 tons were exported to the
United States. The quantity of
coke exported to that country was
about 500,000 tons out of an aggregate of about 1,700,000 tons made
in Crows Nest Pass ovens to date.
A Crows Nest correspondent
writes: "I would like to call attention to the large deposits of coal
lately found in the Flathead valley,

CHRIST   CHURCH  SUNDAY
SCHOOL CHRISTMAS TREAT
A bright and jolly party ot little
ones gathered at the rectory on
Thussday afternoon last, tbe festival
ol tho Kpiphany, for the annual
Christmas ;reat ol tho Sunday
school.
Although the rooms are (airly spacious (no rooms are very large la the
homes of this country), yet the rectory rooms were taxed to their full
capacity.
The little people and older ones
were of necessity very intimately as
BOClSted. Rut without these was
fun and lots of It, for thn Unbones.
At 5 o'clock about half of the   as
sembled ones sat down lor supper at
tables well supplied with go.-d things,
thanks to the generosity of members
of the church,
If you wish to see real enjoyment
just look in upon a lot ol little
ones at table when "they arc out for
a time," or when they are mixing
indiscriminately in their play and
real ire that they will be allowed to
be a little boisterous.
It la pleasure unalloyed that one
thus looks in upon.
Well alter the fust and second
tables were done justice to, the

Thus ended two hour:1: of real enjoyment, thn older ones having   hnd

ol Wendell Phillips auord a fitting
introduction to a lew remarks anont
tho new public school building, which
was this week thrown open to Clan-
brook scholars. Cranbrook is an
enterprising town and has expended
money generously in various directions with a Mew to adding to Its
attractions as a place of residence.
The Herald is Justified In remarking,
we believe, that no wiser expenditure of public moneys has been incurred than in the erection ot the
substantial, well equipped public
school building that was opened on
.Monday morning last. In whatever
oilier directions tbe city may expand
it is absolutely essential, if ll is to
hold its own, Hint adequate accommodation for educational purposes bo
provided, and in erecting so line ami
commodious a structure tho eiti/.eiis
of Cranbrook unquestionably were
well advised. The fact that so fine a
building has been erected for their
special benefit will have a marked effect for good upon the children, who
will occupy it during the coming
years. They will undoubtedly be
more strongly Impressed than over
With the importance of their educational course when they see their
parents providing such a splendid
building for them to carry on their
studies in.
With school accommodation second
to none in the west, with a well selected and thoroughly competent
stall of teachers, Cranbrook may
well be proud of the educational facilities it has to oiler and a united effort should lie put forth from now on
to set that the best, use possible is
made of them. In particular, some
special effort is in order to secure
larger patronage of the high school
It is simply stating the fact, when'
wo say that unless there be a larger
attendance obtained in short order
this high school may have to he closed and this, surely, would be a detrimental blow to Cranbrook. There
should lie no great difficulty experienced in working up a larger attendance if all Interested wilt bin do
their part. There is a large ami
fairly well settled country tributary
to this city, in which, doubtless,
many families reside, having children
eligible for the high school, and unable at the present time to secure
that advantage. Active steps
should be taken at once to arrange
for the hoarding In town ol children
so situated. There nre, no doubt,
several families resident in town,
who would he prepared to nccommo
date children from outside point
during their attendance at the high
school. If such families would notify   the hoard of     scl I truste s t<
this cITect, the latter would he in 8
position to arrange with non-resident
patents for the attendance of their
children at the high school. The Herald will be pleased to net as an intermediary in this respect. Any
family, residing in tho city, that
would be willing to accommodate
one or more high school pupils,
might notify us to that effect, stating terms, etc., and we would see
that this information reached the
proper quarters.
quite    able to   take care of himself
and his   conduct ot the Herald   certainly entitled   him to    the respect
and confidence, of the people of Crau-1
brook.     Owing to the sUitc   of   his;
health anil to   that cause alone Mr, I
Simpson   disposed of his interest   in j
the Herald and has gone to Southern
California to recuperate.     These are
indisputable    facts,     and   yet     the |
Searchlight,    presumably in its anxiety to    minimize its sorry   performance in connection    with the   Dow
charges, seeks lo belittle his work In
this town and to insinuate that   he
was practically driven from his position   as editor    ot tho Herald   because of the publication of a certain
advertisement i» reference to the recent    local option   campaign.      Wo
wish  to state emphatically  that Ibis
Insinuation   is   wholly unwarranted.
Mr. Simpson bad practically disposed
of his interest   in tho Herald several
WoekS before the advertisement in
question appeared in these columns
Moreover, it is well known that tbe
mattcrr complained ol was in the
form of a paid advertisement,    with

He labored assiduously and effectively for   the   upbuilding of Cranbrook,
to tbe serious detriment ol his health,
and now that lie is, temporarily,   nt

any loyal citizen of Cranbrook to at-
Lempt to blacken his name.
Yet another periodical has been added to tbe long list already published

"BONNIE BRIAR BUSH
DRAMATIZATION    OF   IAN MAC-
LA REN'S GREAT WORK TO
BE PRESENTED HERE.
Tbe two Scottish novels which have
achieved the most success are "Tbe
Bonnie Briar Bush," written by Rev.
John Watson, D.D., and fancifully
signed Ian McLaren, and "The Little
Minister," written by J. P. Barrio.
Both are Scottish stories of much interest and perfect adaptation in the
way of characterization. Naturally
both have been dramatized. "Tho
Bonnie Briar Bush" lends itself particularly to adaptation, since plot,
characters, atmosphere are all ready
at the hand ot the playwright, in
the charming story of much heart
interest which has made the pen-
name ot Liverpool's greatest Presbyterian divine world famed.
Tbe work of making n play of the
novel was committed to .lames Mc-
Arthur, editor ol the "Bookman,"
who received some expert assistance
trom Augustus Thomas. They have
compressed the story Into four acts,
taking for the basic theme the instance denoting the transformation of
Laehlan Campbell from a digued rigorous adherent ol n learful Presbyterian theology to a father whose
heart first throbs in unison with the
broader humanities after a mishap
which befalls his daughter.
The love story ot Flora Campbell
and Lord Hay is sufficient to make
the main thread ot a melodrama In
Itself, but that the comic touches
provided by the .bibulous postman,
Archibald McKittrfck, and tbe genial
Dr. McClure, with tho brighter comedy shown In the courting nt the
Rev. Carrr.ichacl and Kate Carnegie.
"The Bonnie Briar Bush" is
sufficiently far removed from the
realms ot the melodrama to be a
splendid play. It will ho seen here
on Monday, January 17th, at the
Auditorium.

EIGHT NAMES STRUCK OFF
RULING OF MAdlSTHATE RYAN
ON  APPLICATION OF  A.
McKINNON.
A number of casrs involving the
question of the right ol parties to
have their names placed on the voters' list of the city by virtue of a
deed of conveyance executed, but not
registered, under the provisions of
the Land Kegistry Act, came before
■loseph Ryan, police magistrate, on
the evening of Wednesday last.
K. J. Avison appeared for Archie
McKinnon, the applicant, and O. II.
Thompson appeared for the respondents, C*. A. Mi Nab and others.
From the evidence it appeared that
in the early part of November last a
conveyance wan duly made out for
three lots, the assessed value of
which amounted to a sum sufficient
to qualify the eight respondents as
property holders of the statutory
limit of $100 i-arh.
An nitstmet of title to the lots prepared In the land registry office at
Nelson showed that up to the Ilth
Instant the deed to the respondents
had not to-eii registered. Mr.
Thompson stated that the deed had
been sent awny for registration nn
tho 10th Inst and that the court
should, from thnt fact, assume that
the registration had been completed
Mr. Avison relied on the abstract
of title, the express terms of the
Land Registry Act, and the decision
in the eases of Levey vs. (Ileason,
Coughlan va. the National Construction Co., and especially tbe ruling of
Judge Forin in ro the Kaslo municipal voters' list. In the latter case
several parties produced their deeds
of property in Kaslo and the assessor in consequence of this evidence of
title placed their names on the list.
Judge Forin, sitting in the court ot
revision, struck their names off, as
the deeds had not been registered in
accordance with seeti<n 74, ol the
Land Kegistry Act.
The magistrate, in giving his decision, held that he was bound by this
clear decision of Judge Forin's. It
had not been overruled up to date. In
the case before him be was as'ced to
assume that the qualifying deed had
been registered. He felt that no
course was open to him but to act
as Judge Forin formerly did at
Kaslo and, as the deed to the respondents had not ben registered, to
strike the eight names of the respondents from the voters' list.

In Scotland the heather is on lire,
writes a correspondent ol the London (England) Chronicle. Liberal
Scotland is not given to vacillation,
though, ol course, adverse circumstances are not without their effect,
Early in the year, when several by-
elections took place, the prolonged
spell ol unemployment told severely
against the Liberal cause. Men out
of work were iii no mood to weigh
impartially the respective merits ol
free trade and tarlD reform. Indeed,
lliey were in a mood to listen to the
plausibilities ol economic quackery.
Liberal seats were held, but by reduced majorities.
But Seoitish Liberalism has rccov-
csed Irom its temporary lit ol depression. The notion of the peers in
regard la the budget has proved n
splendid Ionic. Km years Seottis'i
Liberals have been waiting fur a
avorablo opportunity to attack the
house of lords. In fact, many ol
them thminlit that the government
should have grappled with the problem when it took ofllce, This view,
io my knowledge, was pressed upon
the Isle Sir Henry Campbell-Banner-
man. who thought, however, that nol
until the peets began to wreck Liberal measures in wholesale fashion
would ihe people rise in theti wrath
ng.lllisl  then  hereditary enemies.
Taking Scotland as a whole, tho
political prospects are bopolul In the
eitrrme The Liberals are exultant.
The) have a splendid lighting pro-!
gram      The Tones are ill a despond
cni   mood       Those ill   them with
whom | have talked admit tliat the
house id lords made a blunder in tactics in rejecting Die budget It is
fell thai defence ol the house ol lords
in this matter is tantamount to
treachery to ihe lions,- ol commons.
It is considered   rather a risky busi
ness lor Tory candidates to ask votes
in order to place the house ol commons under the heel ol the house ol
lords. The Tories arc further haud-
icapped by the lact that they dare
not publicly defend a hereditary house
ol legislators. Under the circumstances the Tories are going to this
battle with little heart, while the
Liberals are eagerly yearning lor the
hour when they will he avenged ol
their coronettcd iocs.
Now that the appointment ol Mr.
Herbert Gladstone as governor general ol South Alrica bus received tho
approval of the king, rumor is busy
with the probable changes which will
take place in the cabinet in the event
ol the Badieals being returned to
power next month. Mr. John Burns,
il he succeeds in being re-elected lor
Batters,a, may become home secretary, lie has first claim lo consideration (or the post, but, on the other band, many of his own friends believe that he would do better to remain at the local government board,
where it is generally admitted he has
done good work. It is an open
secret, however, that he desires promotion, and there will be no sur-
theielorc, if be succeeds Mr.

GENERAL BOOTH'S LIFE
London, Jan. 12.—In a tiny, plainly furnished back room ot his very
modest home on the northern outskirts of London, General Booth is
writing bis autobiography. He is
dictating his story to two shorthand
writers by (Its and starts, in the intervals between meetings and Salvation Army work in all parts of the
country.
When finished, the "autobiography"
will be a memorable work of worldwide Interest, filling up and rounding
out an important chapter In the social and spiritual history of England,
and describing the beginning and the
progress of what the late Sir Waller
HcKaiit culled "The Great Endeavor,"
The bunk will deal with the re
mnrknhle overseas development of
William  Booth's  organ t/nt Inn.
Now io ever General Booth Is an
autocrat, and "L'ctat? C'cst inol"
is his motto.
Bramwcll Booth, tho general's eld-
wt son, and his family, live close at
hand, and every morning before he-
leaves (or ijueen Victoria street, anil
every evening when he returns ihe
"chief visits his atber, and what-1
ever work is in hand is put aside |
while the two converse on the al- j
fairs of the Salvation Army or on
matters of public interest.
The "autobiography'1 will cover a
period of sixty-five years of active!
work, and the general does not mind
confessing that one ot his inspirations in his task is ihe portrait
hanging in his room of his dead wife,
the "mother" of tho Salvation
Army, the courageous woman who,
when tho Methodist New Connexion
decided to send him on circuit work
iic toad of tho revival work [or
which his heart longed, echoed his
"Never" from the gallery, and so determined his new stait in life-
ONTARIO'S NEW GOLD FIELD
PREDICTIONS     OK    WILD  RUSH
INTO PORCUPINE    DISTRICT
THIS SPRING.
If this Ontario of ours to be one of
the greatest mining countries in the
wot Id? Productive of silver, of
copper, of nickel, of iron, of corundum, of many other metals' We believe it, and we believe that Ontario
is about to uncover one of the greatest gold fields known to history, and
that 1910 is to sec one of the greatest gold fevers yet recorded find Its
center in the Porcupine Holds in New
Ontario, and Toronto the metropolitan focus of the rush—a rush that
threatens to surpass California or
Australia in their palmiest days,
says the Toronto World.
What has Ontario done so far?
From one little, Insignificant township, Coleman, and its still less insignificant town, Cobalt, twelve millions of silver were produced in 1009,
ami a great deal more will he produced this year. Cobalt is only beginning. There never was such a
phenomenal silver camp!
One hundred and thirty miles, or
less, southwest of Cobalt is Sub-
bury, the marvel of the world in
nickel production. Nobody knows
its real "production or its real value.
It is controlled out of our country,
its matte is refined in the United
States. But Its output is said to
have exceeded last year $2,500,000,
and of copper over another million of
dollars. We believe this product sold
for many millions more.
One hundred and fifty miles northwest of Cobalt are the new Porcupine
gold fields, Which, The World, after a
lot of investigation, after hearing tho
stories of men who have been there,
after a hint and more of some of tbe
contents of some reports thereon by
conservative experts—and which will
in due course be available, and after
it has sent three special commissioners to the district, is led to believe
Will be the most active and surprising gold field on tbe face of the
globe.
Here, then, in this triangle, made
up of Sudbury, Cobalt, Porcupine,
120 to 150 miles apart, are two of
thp marvelous metal camps of the
world, silver and nickel, and more
likely also of gold.
Well, what is the substance ol the
news: That a great area of rock,
known technically as schist, exists in
the Townships of Whitney, Tisdale,
Shaw and the adjoining territory, including portions of the Timagami
forest reserve, and that reefs of
quartz rock containing free milling
gold abound throughout this schist,
and that there are miles and miles of
country of this quartz showing free
gold in marvelous and wide-spread
profusion. If it Is only on the surface, it is a wonder; it it is ten feet
deep, it will be the wonder of the
world. Official investigation has
not yet been able to reach the limits
of this schist formation—other than
it extends for miles and that bund-
reds of prospectors have already
found free gold in it and staked their
claims. Over a thousand men a
week are going in now; hosts will be
going in later; roads arc being cut
by private enterprise, hotels and
stores, supply stations, teams and
stages, banks and speculators, are all
on the way to Porcupine lake.
"Before fall," said Charles Gilford,
who is a man of experience, "there
will be two towns on Porcupine lake
bigger than Cobalt and Haileybury."
"I've seen all the goldfields of the
Western States," said Mining Engineer Anderson, "and there is nothing
there like what 1 saw in Tisdale io
the IaH ten days." Both Mr. Gilford and Mr. Anderson came to Toronto yesterday after spending a
fortnight at Porcupine lake. M. J.
O'Brien, of the O'Brien Silver mine,
at Cobalt, paid $300,000 for a claim
at Porcupine lake. He lias already
a diamond drill there. Said Mr.
Gifford: "He will take enough gold
out of a few yards to pay for the
whole mine."
Hundreds of claims have been
staked, the owners are camped on
them, they hand you samples of gold-
bearing quartz as freely as a farmer
would hand you potatoes; the rich
HSU of the samples, ihe unlth ot the
i area, are the marvels. Three claims
i alone, the Ifnlliuger, Gillies, Wilson,

o.ice il finds a reilinrr. place, sifts down thiou-h the lijlit surlacc mud

Where the courses of iircams have been changed, the richest Placer
Mines are found in their old beds. But in the larger, cunsUnl streams,
these rich deposits are beyond the reach of merely human agencies.
It remains for die Gold Dredge—following the heavy nuggets
and partidei of Gold down ihroujh the overlying strata in the bars
and benches of ihe river, to recover these (lores of Gold from the
treasure-house of Nature.
The long arms of ihe Dredge, wilh their endless chains of bucket

CANADA'S NAVAL PLAN
SIR WILFRID ANNOUNCES GOVERNMENT'S POLICY.
Ottawa, Jan. PI.—The long expected government announcement in respect to the Canadian navy was yesterday made in the house of commons by Sir Wilfrid l.aurier who, in
the absence of linn I.. P. Brodeur,
[minister of marine, confined himself
to tho salient features ol tho scheme.
The program as enunciated by the
premier contained one surprise. Ii
was announced that Hie government
bad decided that Canada's initial
navy shall consist of 11 vessels to
est upwards of $11,000,000, ins-tend
of seven vessels, as semi-official I y
announced some week ago.
•The 11 vessels will be made up nl
four cruisers of the Bristol class, armored, one of the Boadicea, small
protected cruiser class and six destroyers ol the improved River class
Sir Wilfrid explained that ordinary
destroyers were not good sea craft
as a rule, and the improved River
class were esteemed for their seagoing capabilities.
The initial expenditure for construction will he about MI.uoii.iiiio.
Expressing the ho|w that it would bo
possible to construct tho navy in
Canada, Sir Wilfrid explained that it
would probably cost lif> per cent more,
to build ships on this side ol the
Atlantic. The bill, which Sir Wilfrid introduced and which is entitled
"An Act Respecting tho Naval Service of Canada," follows tho lines of
the militia act, one principal difference being that Canadians cannot be
compelled to serve in the navy under
any circumstances, tho service being
entirely voluntary.
The governor-in-council will have
authority to send the fleet anywhere
and be available lot mobilization in
the event of war or teal or apparent
danger, the only reservation being
that on the dispatch of the fleet under these circumstances parliament,
if not sitting, must be immediately
summoned.
In answer to an interpolation, the
premier said that it was understood
that any war in which Great Britain
engaged Canada would also be involved in.
It, L. Borden, in a long speech,
laid much stress on Germany's efforts to outstrip Great Britain in
naval construction. He declared
that Britain's crisis would come
within three years and that in view
ol (he circumstances the government's proposals were Inadequate.
He urged that under the resolution
passed by parliament last session
authorizing an emergency contribution under such circumstances as
exist today, it would
he belter to turn over to the Imperial authorities the amount which it
is proposed to spend and then proceed along careful lines with the construction of a navy. Mr. Borden did
not favor the idea of an annual contribution.
F, l>. Monk vigorously opposed the
proposal to build a navy nn the
ground that Canada was not fit at
the moment to build it. He stuck
to the view outlined by him in a
speech delivered at Lachine shortly
before parliament opened, emphasizing in pointed manner his objections
to the entire proposal.
The bill was given a first reading.
tt
There should be a large attendance
at Ihe Methodist church nn Tuesday
evening next, when Lieut .-Colonel
Unwell, nf the Salvation Army, will
deliver an address on the army's Immigration work.

to the end of the year, owing to the
knowledge that some changes would
occur in prices The usual end-nf-

BEES AND FERTILIZATION
PAPER   READ    BEFORE   CRANBROOK FARMERS' INSTITUTE BY   T. S. GILL.
(Continued from last week.)
Ladles and Gentlemen:
A colony of bees contains the
workers, tho queen or, mother bee
and at some seasons the drones or
male bees. The queen is the only
perfect female in the hive, she lays
all the eggs to produce the young—
as many as Hum in a day of 24
hours, In a busy season. Tlie
workers are undeveloped Icmnles and
do all the work of the colony, feed
the queen, nurse the young, build tbe
comb and do nil the housekeeping,
colled and bring in tbe honey ami
pollen from the Holds. They are
provided with a honey sac and
pouches on their hind legs, where
tbey store und carry pollen; their
bodies are also covered with hair,
to which tho pollen adheres. As
each egg produces a bee, worker
bees are raised in great numbers,
tbe egg remains In the cell of the
comb three days before hatching;
then is fed on a digested food from
the nurse bee for three days, the
following six days honey Is added,
then scaled over in the cell and remains in the chrysallis state twelve
days. It then cats its way out a
full-sized worker hee, though a little
fuzzy-looking. So It takes only
twenty-one days from the time the
egg is laid by the queen until the
cell is again ready for another egg.
The worker bee remains in (he lilvo
until about the 15th day, thin makes
its first trip to the fields and continues to gather honey nnd pollen
until about forty-five days old, when
it dies ol old age. They live longer in
a state of inactivity, so in a semi-
dormant state live through the winter on the surplus honey collected in
the siimmir season.
Honey is 80 per cent food and 20
per cent water, as compared to
beef steak with 30 per cent of solid
food and potatoes with 5 per cent.
It is also a great producer of heat,
which protects the bees in our cold
northern winters. The bees can be
seen flying in warm days in winter
and as they live through the cold
weather arc around in the spring
ready for the first pollen and nectar
secreted by the flowers. Have
noticed them bringing in pollen from
the anemone or crocus as early as
the 8th of February in Cranbrook;
they are abundant In numbers for
the fruit Moom In the spring, on
the contrary the humble bee, the
honey hornet, and wasps all die olf
excepting tbe queen, so she has to
commence the new colony. Therefore, their numbers arc small until
the clover; after the fruit bloom is
gone and arc of little or no use to
the horticulturist.
Pollen is a farinaceous substance
and is to the bee what bread is to
man. and when stored in the comb
mixed with honey is called lee bread
It is a muscle forming fond and used
by the bees in summer. The tec
larvae will not live over 21 hours
without it, so the worker bees store
large quantities in tht1 fall to provide for early breeding jn tbe spring
nnd for rainy days, when none is obtainable.
On ret'rnlng from the fields to tbe
bite tbey disgorge tbe honey into a
cell containing honey and the pollen
into n cell containing pi Hen. Tbey
rid themselves ol this pollen in a
comical manner, sticking their hind
legs Into a cell Mc\ . f! the pollen
with mUdle l< >s and run off, never
looking back. Pollen ol one kind is
always found tn layers In the cells
where it has been packed by tbe
nurse bees, which is proof that the
bees R.itlirr pollen from flowers ol
one kind at a trip—another provision
of nature to have pollen distributed
to (lowers «f the same kind.
Tbe bees going into [lowers lot
nectar nib against the stamens and
often (be pollen sacs break open,
scattering tbe fertile dust all over

A colony of bees may contain
10,000 workers. which have been
known to collect ten pounds ol honey
In one dav      One pound of honey   is
covered with pollen has a very small j plowing to be thoroughly disked and weak   chickens should   be kept     by
Orchards have been known to produce double the amount of fruit
where a few colonies of bees have
been placed conveniently near. A
case is cited where ten acres of mixed healthy trees, located at such a
distance from any wood so the
chances of being visited by wild bees
was doubtful, blossoms were abundant but yield of fruit was small and
poor in quality, An apiary was
stationed near to the orchard and
tlie following year the crop was so
heavy the limbs bad to be propped
to prevent them breaking, and every
subsequent year tho yield was
abundant. An experiment was tried
in an orchard of pear trees, a small
tree was selected; all the stamens
removed and the (lowers thinned to
l-ll and the tree closely covered
with cheese cloth. Pollen was gathered from another variety of pear
nut dusted on to tbe stigmas with
i brush und the result was a heavy
crop, far heavier than any tree ot
belter quality alongside of it. Other
xpcrimenls have been tried and   the
and   during   the seeding  or planting After   they are strong enough   to
operations and not, as is often done leave the brooder, the best house to
in heavy soils, by plowing it under, put them in is a colony house.    Put

To the Editor:
In the latest reports ot tbe Dominion experimental (arms, just to hand,
appears, in the chemist's report, an
analysis and discussion on several
samples of soil obtained on a strip
from Golden to Cranbrook. From
description and places of selection of
these soils this ought to be a sublet of importance to all interested
in agriculture in this district.
Prof. Shutt speaks of two samples:
Nos. 4315-1317, described as fine
grained, mouse brown, loams taken
from lower bench land, representing
the first four inches of (4:115) virgin
soil and (1317) cultivated land on
Mr. R. R. Hruce's ranch, Windermere. These soils will be recognized
as typical of much of the hench land
in all this district and Professor
Sbutt's remarks, following his
analysis of composition, are worthy
of note. We will not quote the
analysis here, hut ghe some of his
deductions therefrom.
Both samples are found to be well
supplied with all the essential elements ol plant food and espcciall}
with nitrogen, while tlie per cent nf
organic matter and lime are excellent, betokening soil of more than ordinary fertility. It is, however,
when we examine the report on tbe
accounts of available potash and
phosphoric acid that our interest is
aroused. Here we find that in the
soil that has been irrigated and cultivated the amount of ihese eld
merits immediately available is much
larger than in the virgin soil, which
accounts for the heavy crops produo
ed when water is properly applied
In these samples the amount of polish is almost twice as great and
that ol phosphoric acid live times as
ie.it in tbe soil that bad been cropped six years as in the virgin soil.
Professor sbutt's summing up on
these two and other soils described
line grained, very loose, light
chocolate brown loams," is: "These
soils are or very loose asb-lile character, the sand grains very line and
tbe protection of clay quite small
I'bey are exlremely easy to work
but must be managed carefully in
rrlgating to prevent cut t ng of channels or washing aw.iy ol surface

sub-soil, the one merging atmost Imperceptibly in the other, nn re humn
and ol course a darker color sh w ng

higher than might be expected from
their physical appearance and they
are also charact rlxed ly a large
percentage of lime, also beto onlng
fertility and amounts of potash "re
Benl are icry satisfactory"
Altogether we have here a v. ry
satisfactory report nn n clw of soil
I believe to be typical of a grra
leal of tbe bench lands of th s dla
irict, the especially noteworthy len
tore being Ihe great incrmse In
available plant food after some seasons of Ullage nnd Irrigation. This
is directly In line with nn opinion

some months hack when I said that

have in abundance, our great need Is

Professor Shutt maJfOS the point that

attention among nil cultivators of
Ibis class nf soils.
cruel men may laugh, but they seldom smile. The allluciice, the benediction, the radiance, which "Fills
the silence like a speech," is the
smile of a full appreciative heart.
The face that grows finer as it listens, and then breaks into sunshine
instead of words, has a subtle,
charming influence universally felt,
though very seldom understood.
Don't he cross and hateful because
everything in the world don't move

great deal smarter than any one else,
and are justly entitled to more recognition. While you are fully
aware ot your attainments your
neighbor, who is dull of comprehension, has not found nut that you are
more than an ordinary Individual.
You have doubtless told him di tie rent
more than once, yet in his dullness
he has failed to comprehend the
many brilliant points you know yourself to he possessed of. .So do not
kick because you arc not appreciated. The best thing you can do is to
get a divorce from your big head,
come .down from your high perch,
and be a sensible everyday Canadian.
The fact is much to be deplored
that with most boys and girls the

of money for them, in furnishing

PRACTICAL PAW-TRY RAISING
(By R. W. Hodson, Live Stock Commissioner.)
Hatching chicks is hut half the
battle, and we might add, "Count
not your chicks before they are several days old." Wilh judicious
treatment, giving the chicks plenty
of room, there should be but little
difficulty in raising them, provided,
of course, they are strong ones. Under natural conditions, if a chick
becomes slightly chilled, It goes under the hen to get warmed up. The
reason for this is that the chick's
lungs, which arc along the spinal
column nml proccting in between the
ribs, arc very poorly protected anatomically. Thus, when a chick lie-
comes chilled, its lungs are apt to
be the first organs affected, and un-
fess they are soon warmed up a cold
may be contracted and the lungs
may become inflamed. Thousands of
chicks die     annually  from inllamma-
bottom heat, should be supplied.
Many practical poultry men in this
prpvlnce employ the continuous
brooder house in brooding the chicks.
Individual brooders are employed on
large and small plants, though they
require more labor. Tbe "FIrelcss"
brooder has been tried, but it presents somi difficulties, and has not
been a deeded s ccess In this province, however, it Is worthy of attention from po ltryi en, es ci liy in
some districts of the province.
Vftei the chic s arc removed from
tbe incubator it is advisable not to
bed them for two or three days, as
they ha e enough nutriment in their
bodies to sustam life for that period.
It is well, however, to le p plenty
ot fresh water before them, and also

good market "chick fe d" or finely
cracked wheat and corn may be

learn to scratch this, olta nlng exercise, and nt the same time becoming
vigorous nnd healthy.
Many poultrymen, in their anxiety
to   have   the    clue s prow   rapidly,
applicable to men and women in
society. Many dark deeds arc committed through a desire to supply
(be demands of worldly-minded wives
and daughters. And again an honorable man, rather than sell his principles nf integrity or meet the
taunts and upbraidiugs at home,
when he fails to supply their demands, prefers to send his soul to
eternal death and thereby r'd his
physical self of life's burdens.
"He who would, free from malice,
[iass bis days, must live obscure and

Never on earth to meet again,
She to a happier home ou high,

"That day was perhaps the greatest in my life. Kneeling by her bedside, with one hand clasped in mine,
the other resting on my head, ..he
whispered, "My boy, you know your
mother loves you. Will you give me
a promise that I may take it up to
heaven?' Yes, yes, mother, I will
promise you anything.' "Johnny,
my son, I am dying,' she said, 'promise me that you will never drink
intoxicants, and then it will not be
so hard to leave this world." Dear
reader, need I tell you that I promised 'yes;' and whenever I am asked to
drink, that scene comes up before me
and I am safe."
SETTLING DOWN TO MARRIED
LIFE.
A husband is forever drawing contrasts between bis wife as she is and
as she was. He also draws contrasts between bis wife and other
women. There Is nothing particularly sinful In this. It is quite natural and is to be expected. Women
are too much disposed to take it for
granted that marriage means the
extinction of the aesthetic sense in
the husband. It docs not mean
anything of the kind. There is no
reason why toe aesthetic sense
should not be just as strong in a
man after he is married as before lie
is married. In fact, it is so. The
average woman is too much disposed
to shed her plumage when she marries. The average man is more disposed to keep bis, and makes himself
proportionately more interesting. Tbe
average woman says when she gets
married, "Thank goodness that I
have come thus far. It is over, and I
am fixed for life." Then she Bottles
down. This settling down means a
great deal. In it is involved the
disenchantment, tbe disillusionment
spoken of above. Too much is revealed. The actuality becomes too
bald.
GOOD RESOLVES.
A very good resolution to make is
to attend exclusively to one's own
business. Tbe best way to get
through tbe world pleasantly is to
go straight ahead. One's own business is always more than he can attend to perfectly. But we must not
limit the maxim to merely selfish
pursuits. It is our business to do
our duty. This is the chief object
and to ft tbe making ot money and
the winning of tame are merely incidental. Tbe business of life is to be
useful to your neighbors, to the
church, to the country, to the race.
Happily a man can now manage all
the demands ot bis legitimate business and not go a day's journey to
do it. He can perform all these
duties for humanity near and far,
without leaving his own borne.
Take as much care of your money
as you can if your means are limited, but don't try to save your smiles
or kind words. The more liberal you
are with these tbe more you will
have.

GdVtlNUI MACKINTOSH
STRIKES IT RICH ONCE AGAIN
IN GOWGANDA CAMP.
0. H. Mackintosh, former lieutenant-governor of tbe Northwest territories, and lately a resident of
Victoria, is likely to make another
fortune io mining. This is tbe news
brought from tbe east by George
Tunstall, of Vancouver, wbo in pioneer days ia the Kootenays saw
prospectors grow wealthy overnight,
especially during boom times
Kossland. Mr. Tunstall recently
met "tbe governor" in Toronto
"Mr. Mackintosh is developing ir
Gowganda camp a group of silver
claims that promise to rival anything struck in Cobalt," said Mr.
Tunstall to tbe Vancouver Province.
"Tbe vain is well defined and runs
thousands of dollars to tbe ton. Tbe
governor, according to information I
learned from personal friends, is
likely to make a big cleanup. He is
in virtual control of tbe property
and bad large financial backing in
doing tbe preliminary development
work. Mr. Mackintosh, with characteristic modesty, mr.ply admitted
that he bad a very promising showing, and hinted that he expected to
lay by a few dollars for a rainy
day. Of course, I know he meant a
million, and I feel certain bis expectations will be realized." Mr. Macintosh bought tbe LeRoi mine from
the Spokane owners and sold it to
an English snydicate about ten years
ago. He was a leading figure in
Rossland and endeared himself to
prospectors by his generous ways. He
realized, so It is said, about SGOO.noo
out of tbe Le Roi deal.

he can stay away from church, as he
