Dominion   Geologist   Investigating  Ore
Van And*, Aug. 20.���The residents
of Van Andi have been agreeably surprised by tie visit of Mr. Le Hoy, the
Dominion g:*ologist, who is making a
thorough examination of the Island for
the purpose of arriving at a conclusion
in regard to the continuity, location
and direction or the mineral veins of
the island. Mr. Le Roy arrived at the
island unheralded, and started to work
aA once in the vicinity of the Marble
Bay mine. He stated that the government noticed that large shipments of
copper ore had been coining in from
British Columbia, and decided to send
him to the different camps in the
nrovinoe to veport on tbe geological
for111-.t_.0n al ���-*,���-, "--�� lones, tu prepare
maps and plans, and to get full information for the benefit of the mining industry.
Mr. Le Roy is now working on two
large dykes which seem to carry the
ore which is running parallel with
them. If it can be proved that there
are no serious faults in these dykes,
and they can be traced for any great
distance, It would be of Incalculable
benefit to those engaged is the mining
industry of Texada island, and to the
province in general. It has been pointed out that this ore-carrying dyke on
Texada island may have faulted in
places from 10 to 12 to 100 feet as n
result uf past geological changes or
upheavals in the earth's crust, while
on the mainland in the mountain chain
dykes would lie liable to fault from one
mile to 50 miles.
In the case of Texada island this
dyke has been formed by the material of which it is composed being
forced through n fissure in the surface
of the earth by chemical action, and
in this action the precious metal has
been forced up along with It. bo that
It Is altogether likely that the metal
will be found wherever the dyke Is

Large Output of Gold Mines
Every Month
Arabs  and  Hindoos Worse Than
Chinese Slaves���Ruin Threatening tne Country.
Mr. A. W. Frothinghuin, who Is at
present visiting in Victoria, makou
some Interesting remarks with regard
to the state of things in Soutb Africa
He says the labor question in that
colony is becoming quite a serious mat
ter. In consequence of the paitiai
puralysiB due to this unsettled point
many people are leaving South Africa
lor Canada. The announcement of
thi.- Liberal government to tho effect
that no more Chinese would be allowed to enter the Transvaal caused
tlie shares of South African companies
to go down, bringing about quite a
The mines are nevertheless turning
out $10,000,000 worth of gold per
month, oi sum that is more or less
equivalent to the total output of British
Columbia in a year. The policy seems
to be to live a short and merry life, for
it is known that the gold deposits can
only last at the most for 25 years. The
main hope of thetountry for the imme
diate future would appear to be centered In Us mining, though a great mis-

receiving less than what they could
i-.sin belure the war. Large numbers
of them are now independent through
having saved earnings made at a
time ot the war, and therefore refu-e
to work for reduced pay.
The Kimberley diamond mines continue working successfully. The only
drawback about the extraction of diamonds is that It does nol require
great numbers of laborers, and that
the big profits which are made go only
into the hands of a few individuals.
As for the agricultural prospects or
Ihe new colonies, Mr. Froiliaiu does
not think very greatly of them. The
soil there Is Inferior, and irrigation
along the banks of the great rivers,
like the Vaal and Orange, has beeu
found to be Impossible owing to the
depth below the banks at which the
water   flows.
Tho fruit Industry, however, ls going ahead in parts. The twelve farms
which belonged to Cecil Rhodes and
which are now owned by the Hex
River Fruit company, are doing well.
Some of the plums from these orchards sent to Paris actually brought
the price of 20 centimes per plum.
Consignments of the same fruit are
regularly shipped to New York. Fruit
experts from California have reported
very favorably on the district mentioned. , ,
Mr. Frotham has Just been having
n look at the Okanagan valley, and he
finds ln It many points of similarity
in N-.tal. Thi- soil Is very gootl and
there is plenty of sunshine apparently. Some of the fruits grown ln Natal,
fur Instance the Martengula, which l>
thing like a plum, might be experimented with. The gentleman Interviewed narrated that he had seen an
Instance which beat all records on
Long lake, namely, a peach tree which
In 16 months had grown five feet and
wub bearing fruit.
Referring to the arrival here of a
vessel from Hongkong with 300 Indian
coolies on board. Mr. Frotham stated
that a greot many Hindoos are employed in Nntol sugar factories, and
altogether grent numbers live In Nas-
Inl; ln fact, there aro only about 100,-
000 whites In that colony and Just us
many blacks, lie adds that thoy have
Invaded nil departments of life anil
business, and ln ninny cases pay higher prices than Europeans ln order to
secure the best business sites. Matters have reached such a pass now
that It has become necessary to prevent their entrance Into Ihe country.
The Arab trader always follows ln tho
tracks of the Hindoo, and as he, Uko
his Indian cousin, can live on nothing
more exjienslve than the smell of a
rag, thoy both undersell white men
and when they havo succeeded ln killing the competition of tho Europeans
raise their prices, nud remain masters
of the situation. Another point Is that
the mere presence of an Arab or Hindoo shop, with its odors of garlic and
such like, Is enough to depredate tho
value of surrounding buildings, wlilcli
again make It easy for the blacks tn
ttlilaln possession of them nlso, and
so Utile by little oust Europeans rrom
the best quarters of the town. This Is
it danger which might arise In British
Columbia  likewise.
While tho llrlton nnd the lloer aro
now working hitrmnntously sltlo by
side, except In a   few    cases where
Beer women are attempting to stir
up strife, aud while the Europeans
generally resent lhe poll tax put upon
ins.- iliiuluo, the blacKs, on tne Mher
hand, largely at the instigation of propagandist negroes who have crossed
over from the United States, are giving voice to a unanimous cry of "Africa for the Africans." This has produced a state of tension which makes
it necessary for every white man to
carry arms  about his  person.
A letter Just received by Mr. Frotham from South Africa states that
"things have not yet touched bottom"
there, and Mr. Frotham himself ls of
the opinion that Chinese exclusion will
be the ruin of the country, for Its future depends principally upon development of its mining resources. There
is to much drought, too many locusts,
too many pests, too many cattle diseases rife there for successful agriculture and stock raising, and the soil
Is too poor. When the deposits ot
gold come to an end there aro still
sliver, tin, copper and coal to be exploited.
Dominion Government Is Too Poor to
Build One.
For some months past D. J. Mathe-
son,   the   local   postmaster,   has   been
laboring under many disadvantages on
uccuunt of his cramped  quarters antl
growth of the postal business In Phoenix, says the Pioneer.   It was absolutely essential  that he secure other and
larger quarters.   After the matter had
been   thoroughly   canvassed,   pro   aud
cos, It was decided to ei'tct a building
on lot 1, block 1, which is almost adjoining  the   Pioneer  building,  and directly opposite the new Miners' union
opera house.    ThiB seemed to satisfy
the greatest number of residents and
those who have occasion    to    do the
most postal business, and ts as central
a site as could possibly be secured ln
Phoenix.  The site was shown to John
R.Greenfield, 'inspector for the post-
office department, when here last, and
met with his entire approval.

not see Its way clear to erect the
building It had to be done by private
subscription, and this has been tho
method of financing the matter. The
Oranby company made a liberal subscription and so did prominent business Interests at either end of the city,
the total estimated cost of the lot and
building being $:ir,no. Plans were
drawn for a one-story building, about
00 feet long, which will be arranged
to accommodate the postoffice and
custom house only. Tenders were asked for and received, and this week the
contract was awarded to James Thompson, who ls now making preparations
for going on with the building, having
placed an order for the lumber.
first liiTis WON
Nelson   Leads   Portland   in   First   Innings by Score of 62 to 13���Fred
Starkey's "All  Well."
A telegram received from Fred A.
Starkey, managing director of the Nelson Cricket club at 1:30 this afternoon
"First Innings���Nelson, 62; Portland, 13.   Everything lovely." '
While it would be taking too much
for granted to assume that the first
match is won, the disposal of the
Portland men for 13 runs tn their first
Inning ls no surprise to those who aro
familiar with the Nelson cricketers.
Their bowling ls strong and
steady and their general work in
the field will certainly equal In smartness and accuracy anything ever seen
at the coast, while Captain Coppen as
wicket keeper has few superiors anywhere. The Portland bowlers mtnjt
hnve done some effective trundling to
restrict Nelson's formidable array of
bats ta 62 runs for an Innings.
If the Portland men have not fared
very much better thH afternoon the
Nelson men will meet the redoubtable
Victoria club, captained by J. C. liar-
naclo, tomorrow, and will certainly
find worthy foemen.
Mr. Starkey's "everything lovely" Is
a comprehensive message dupable of
the most lutt'ludinariun interpretation.
It Is, however, certainly Intended to
convey the intimation that whatever
may have befallen the noncomb-stants
of the party, the actual players, Mr.
Starkey's special wards, have been
guarded from all harm and nre In meet
condition to do honor to their city.

Refuge in Cellars.
Kenora, Ont., Ang. 20.���Passengers
who reached Kenora by the Bteamer
Kenora report a very disastrous cyclone on the Rainy River valley on
W. dnesday night. Great damage was
caused between Boucherville and Bar-
wick, the storm passing north between
Si ration and -mo. The damage will
run Into thousands ot dollars, an. everyone in the path of the storm loses
more or less according to the value
oi their buildings.
Une of the first houses to go before
Ihu storm was that of William IXtdil,
on tho American side, southwest ot
Boucherville. It was completely demolished, the occupants only saving
themselves by going Into the cellar.
Another settler on tne same side nam-
i'ii Kavanaugh lost his house and bam.
Several other settlers on the Ameri-
can side also suffered. On the Canadian side at Boucherville great damage
was done to a number ct houses. The
warehouse of the navigation company
ls gone no one knows where, as not
a vestige of It is left. Mr. Hennessy s
new house near Boucherville was
twisted Into all kinds of shapes, while
his barn a short distance away was
greatly damaged also.    The roof was
s-svssiest   .ut.und   DUt   IM'
" l*., altr.-fl ��"  ^^
A Mexican also near Boucherville
is a heavy loser, his house and barn
being demolished. R. J. Pither is also
:i loser by tlie cyclone, the house and
outbuilding on his farm on the river
being a complete wreck.
Adam Hoover's brand new barn near
Barwick Is a complete wreck and his
lssss.-- will be heavy. All the windows
tn the house3 at the east end of Emu
wive broken and some of the residences   were   badly  damaged.
All the crops and the haystacks ln
the course of the storm are completely
demolished jnnd the unfortunate farmers will have practically nothing left
fs r their season's work.
The house and all the outbuildings
on ihe farm of William Cameron, near
Stratton are in ruins. In a letter' to
Mr. Margnch of Kenora, mentioned by
the Kenora Miner, he states that they
are swept out of existence. He was
awny nt the time in Fort Francis but
fortunately his wife and family had
presence of mind enough to go *tot the
cellar asd were thus saved. Hr lost

hay and grain. The path of the storm
was about half a mile wide and seemed to follow the river, crossing and

Parts of Doud's log house were
carried completely across the river.
In some instances it did not. leave one

Matches In Hayloft.
Weyburn. Sask,, Aug. 20.-���Two lull sons t>r H. Loucks, a settler living
near here, while playing ln a haylolt
.vltli matches a few days ago, set fire
to the building nnd tlte flames spread
so rapidly that the escape of the
younger child wns cut. off nnd he was
burned to death. Four horses wero
also consumed.
Sultan Drives Himself.
Constantinople, Aug. 20.���The sultan drove to the Solntnik on Friday
in an upon carriage. Ho looked tired,
but on his arrival at the foot of the
hill he mounted the steps of the
mosque without difficulty. His majesty
drove himself back to the palace. He
postponed, however, his customary re-

try to the detriment of the high tone
that has usually been characteristic
of Canadian journals. Nor is this
practice confined to the newspapers,
hut grit orators themselves lender undignified what might be otherwise
considered fair platform addresses bj
the introduction of nicknames thai are
doubtless intended to be funny but
widely miss their mark. Only yesterday morning the local apologist for
the Ottawa government referred to the
arrival of the chief commissioner of
lands and works with scare headlines
which read: "Hon. 'Bob' in Nelson.
���It Is tjuite the common thing for the
Liberal press to speak of Hob Green
and Dicky McBride, though singularly
enough the other heads of depart
meats are not treated so cavalierly
hy the opposition press. On the stump,
*\ix>, if may sound funny to refer to
the premier's curly locks and pay left
handed compliments to the heads oi
the administration, but it really fs no
more funny than it would he to refer
to Frankie .liminie Dean or Vicky
Odium in the same connection. The
newspapers of ihe American continent
of that peculiar type referred to the
late Premier Beddon uf New Zealand
as "Dick" Seddon. and it is a horrible
plagiarism to print the won] "Teddy"
We wonder how it would look in the
Gazette to have our land notices and
applications for timber licenses read,
"I intend to apply to Hon. Hob Green
for permission*, etc." Yet it would
look no more disgusting than the appearance of familiarity 'hat thesi* hap
py go-iucky politicians practice when
they descend to this method of ddis
crediting men in public office. We do
not suppose the ministers can- a* ..ut
these things, and we believe 'hey understand very well the spirit that is
behind th"m, that Is tu say, a Spirit
of smallness and petty jealous)', un incompetency to arise to the level of
proper discussion of public Issues that
flndH it s excuse in lhe petty phrases
which belittle journalism and drag lit
���erary   style   into   contempt
Men in public office are the pah-
lie's servants and the titles which are
conferred upon them hy these offices
should entitle them to some degree of
respectful     men lion. Whether    the
chief commission"!* of lands and works
remains Bob Green to his friends is
not the question. Whether Premier
McBride is familiarly called Dick by
those who have known him from infancy is not the question. The detes-
table practice of calling public men by
nicknames !b ahout the meanest form
of insult that can be administered, and
those who do it are just like the hoys
at school who know very well whal a
nickname la Intended for.   Some scrip
ture worthy once said that while he
was a child he spake as a child, but
having become a man he had put away
childish things. The moral ln this
case  is   indeed   obvious.
There is one man living within the
hounds of the province of British Columbia today who has had more free
advertising from the Liberal press than
any states man, diplomat, ambassador,
king or emperor, and that one man is
James H. Hawthornethwaite, the leader
of th" Socialist party in this province.
No word of condemnation, no term uf
abuse, no charge of incerity that could
be formulated in words, but what has
been hurled at the Socialist leader. It
is needless to say that this ls just
what Mr. Hawthornethwaite likes, and
there has never been anything occur in
his career as  tiatierlng  to  himself aa
- > .:..i,. i-,��� ...Mr-h he has been
dragg.-d by the opposition press.
While it is no business of ours to discuss the socialistic theory as advocated
i.y Hawthornethwaite, it ls only fair to
say that in the open field against the
Liberal papers and the Liberal poim
rians who have attacked Mr. Hawthor-
nethwalte he has more than held his
own. This is the explanation of the
hades of abuse which are being hurled
at him by the opposition papers. When
he has been asked his reasons for voting with the present administration he
has Invariably given them, and his
statement of facts has been so galling
to the opposition that the Socialist
leader has become a bete nolr to thai
party   in the   provincial  house.
The crude and childish attempts thai
are being made lo hold the government
responsible for the vagaries of the
socialistic prophet are only so much
evidence of the hopeless task of the
opposition in Its endeavors to criticize
the government, if some one said "Let
me write the songs of a nation and 1
care not who makes its laws" the Canadian will paraphrase the sentiment by
.;aying "Let Hawthornethwaite talk as
he likes���the people are not fools��� but
so long as he votes right, we care not
what he says." If Mr. Hawthornethwaite can adjust himself to the situa
tion and can reconcile himself wiih
himself we are not going to find fault
with hlm. That is what cuts the pp*
position to the heart. The organs ol
ihe tnorbibund party in the province
are lurious because the Conservatives
have no word of censure for the Social
isl. They raise a furore because they,
as ihey themselves say, are the only
people who have the courage to crill
OlSO the Socialist leuder. We think
ihey are simply waistlng lime lu doing
SO. The Socialist leader will continue
10 talk as he likes but as long as he can
give as good reasons as he has for
suppuriing the Conservative government of British Columbia the Liberal
papers will not succeed Iu fooling thy
The Investigations now being made
by lhe geological survey party of lhe
posslblo exictencu of crude oils In the
new province of Alberla will be watched with interest, not only because of
the possibilities that ihe discovery of
extensive oil fields will mean to Canada in the matter of increasing resources, but because the report of the
Survey party will set at rest the curiosity that exists with reference to
Ihese same fields. The process of refining oil is not as expensive one nor
Indeed, is its production costly, and
where it exists in crude condition to
auy important  extent,  Its  value as a
Revenue producer is evident. The discovery of natural gas in various parts
bf the Canadian West would seem to
Hvarrant the assumption thai oil exists
among lhe plateaus and valleys of the
Rocky mountain range and oil Itself
has been discovered in sufficient
ijuastity and of such quality as to justify the government in making thorough Investigation of the whole situ-
hi ion.
In the meantime, however, there
will be the usual company promotions
and boosting of this or that particular
locality as the very center of all the
oily wealth of half a continent. New
finds, especially when they are certified hy a government official, are always tempting halt for the speoulatot
und the Canadian oil fields, if thoy
really exist, will be no exception to
this rule.
No daintih worded preamble or
Verbose prospectus should he beliavi d
unless (here Is solid Iflforfflfltlotl that
ih-- ad legations ii contains are worthy
id credence.     Kor   the   speculator   Vt ho
takes his ohanoos on such raptures
there Is no need of caution. He knows,
or ought tu know, Uie chance he takes
and It Is his own affair, bin many honest people with small savings, which
have been the accumulation of years,
are often tempted to Invest iu what
seems a sure thing, and are consequently repentant and remorseful for
the   remainder  of  their  days.
While we hope the mosl glowing accounts of oil wealth exist in the province of Alberta and also of British Columbia, the get-rich-qulck schemes are
all full of danger and should he avoided by all but those whose business
it Is to run the risk.
F. W. Heubach of Winnipeg, a gentleman well known and much esteemed
there, has recently been iu Montreal.
The Star of that city, In Its Issue ot
the Hth instant, gives a report of an
interview with Mr. Heubach which is
of course full of the West and of the
great development which is taking
place there. In the n .-.tt of that interview, speaking of the American in*
vasion of our great West, the loiiowing  paragraph occurs:
"I once had a conversation with
President Roosevelt himself on this
subject, said Mr. Heubach, 'and he
told me thai in his opinion the migrating not only for Canada, but also for
the immigrants themselves. They
would find, he said, in this country
laws as good as those ln the United
States, and perhaps better adminls
istered. Their enterprise and thrift
would make them a power In the com*
musity. and, he further declared, there
need never be any fear of their causing any trouble by any movement for
annexation to the I'nited States,
which he recognized as beiug out of
the question."
So Hon. W. S. Fielding Is unseated!

Another    Phase    of    the     Mongolian
K. Aidano has arrived at Nanaimo
from Queen Charlotte islands with a
shipment of copper ore from a Japanese mine, to he tested at the Tyee
smelter. Mr. Aidano reports that
within a short time in the neighborhood of 50 claims have been staked
in the vicinity of his property, situated about 100 miles south of Skldegate,
and that Messrs. Watson and Thompson have recently sold a valuable
claim to a Seattle firm in the same
Mr. Aidano says that his company
operate a fishing station on Queen
Charjott island. "At leant It Is called
a fisblug station," said Mr. Aidano,
"although in reality we are after shell
fish. The kind we handle are what
are commonly known as thu Sea Kar,
althoug the proper name Is Abeloni.
We employ diverB, who bring up the
shell, and the meat from them Is then
boiled in salt water, after which It ls
"We ship the product to China,
where It commands a w.y good price.
Abeloni being considered a very nlco
dish among the Chinese. In somo
places, California for instance, the
Abeloni shell Is valuable for making
fancy buttons, ornaments, etc., but the
British Columbia shells are too small
and thin for such work. However, tho
meat is just as good, und that Is what
we are after."
Asked If there was any truth In the
report that the property owned by his
company had been bonded for $150,
000, Mr. Aidano replied there was not.
If the mine Is a paying proposition
the Japanese company will operate it
themselves, and if it Is not, they wiU
be tho losers.

IFi'om the Cninlirook Herald.)
And speaking of Mellon, did you
know that It was a socialist town,
headed by that prince ol socialists,
Mayor (Jille'tt. But in characterizing
Nelson as a socialist town, it does not
follow that the majority of the reBi-
ilentB are blind followers of Comrade
Hawthornthwaite and believers in his
weak, fallacious and BenseleBs theories.
On the contrary, the people of Nelsou
are giving the wo,-ltl a ina'.iical illustration of modern day socialism since
they have appropriated to their own
use all public utilities and are making
u success of them. The city inuuicl-
liality owns the water works and the
t'lfftric light service and have control
til 'the street railway tutd under the
management of Mayor (lilletf who is
giving Nelion a business man's ail-
ministration  ull of these public mill-
li'-s have been placed on ,-t business
ImslB. Hut tin- hackneyed phrase of
Mr. Hawthornthwaite "the capltalls-
tie classes" finds nn lodging place iu
lln- hearts of Die people here, as that
gentleman would hnve it. The people
of Nelaon, through lis _0,IIOO club, aro

Nanaimo   Inventor   Markets   Valuable
Nanaimo, Aug. 20.���The Schaako
Machine shops uf New Westminster
have nearly completed the first of a
new style gasoline engine which
prtttnises to lie a vast nniiirovenu-nt
over those now in ���se. The machinst
Is the invention of Mr. John Cowie ol
In the ordinary engines the connecting rod antl crank are closed In,
as the gas Is mixed in the chamber
which surrounds lheni. In the event
of anything wrong. Ihe first desire is
tn look at this part of the machinery
and the chamber bus to be opened.
lit the new engines these are exposed and can In- seen at in glance.
The mixing und suction take place at
the bottom of tlie piston, and It Is
then passed tu lhe top ot the piston.
There are no valves, the piston making  its own valves.
It is claimed for this engine, in addition to the above feature, that as better grade of gas is developed from the
same vaporiser, that there Is quicker
action, and that half as much power
again can be evolved ln the same cylinder. It can be reversed the same as
the marine steam engine, simply by
moving one lever.

London, Aug. 20.���A witness in the
Guildhall police court, In giving evidence against a prisoner charged with
stealing 50 Canadian cheeses valued
at ��150, asserted that when the Canadian cheese detoriated in quality it
was impossible to identify them, but
when they left the docks in perfect
condition the witness would have beon
able to Identify them apart from the
marks on the caBes. He judged by
smell and taste. It la a common practice for merchants to put Inferior
cho.se Into boxes marked with well,
known brands. People who expected
to buy Canadian chees were auxioUB
to get It, but whether they got It wa*
another question,
Construction on C. N. P.
Winnipeg, Aug. 20.���Construction
work on the main line of tbe Canadian
Northern railway rrom i_duionton west
lu the foot of tlie Kockies will be begun within the nexl week. Steel rails
huve been shipped to Kilmonton sufficient to lay 100 miles of road, and
gangs of men are being sent to that
point so that the work can be started
at a day's notice. It Is believed by
ofricials or the road that 100 miles ot
road will be completed before the
snow  falls.
The extension of the main line will
cut through one of the most fertile
wheat beltB in Canada. The territory
essstigitous to the surveyed line Ib composed of scattered farms and ranches,
which will bo materially benefited by
Ihe completion ol tlie road. The terminal or the extension will be situated
ut the base of the mountains.

Born, today, to the wife of Andrew
Ualcom, Chatham street, a daughter.
A delegation of trustees of the Hume
school is waiting on Hou. R. F. Qreen
this afternoon.
The regular fortnightly meeting of
the city council will be held in the
council chamber tonight al 8 o'clock.
Dr. La Hun's new gasoline launch,
built in Vancouver, has arrived and
been tested, tl is the first built in
British Columbia and will be an acquisition   to  the  Kootenay  fleet.
W. A. McKlnnon is iu the ciiy on a
vacation,  renewing  old   aoQUfttntAsca.
Mi. McKlnnon was formerly 0. I'. K.
telegraph operator fu the Nelson or*
rice and has worked ull over the weal,
north and south of (his line. He hails
al   present  from  New   Orleans.
. Q. O. Buchanan arrived from Kaslo
this   morning.     He   reports   a*  geserai
restoration of confidence among mining and business men generally, as a
consequence of the very satisfactory
results of work at the Rambler-Cariboo, in MoGiugan Basin, and the
Krao and I'nited at Alnsworth.
Manager Smith of the Surprise
mine at Sandon has installed a drilling machine in his tuhsel,   lr in a late
invention and its capacity is little
known, it strikes spirally, requires
only one man to operate it and does
the work much faster and just as efficiently as it can be done by hand
The usual weekly band concert was
given at the city park yesterday afternoon. The regular practices of the
band have had an excellent result,
and ln the opinion of masy who are
well qualified to judge, the band is
the strongest and best Nelson has ever had. The attendance yesterday by
tram and boats was very large.
W. P. Tierney has returned from
Grand Forks. He says that the Boundary is enjoying prosperous times.
There is a lull, however, in railway
building west of Midway. The V. \.
& E. compasy, the only one doing anything in that line at present, has
withdrawn its grading force, afver
grading 17 miles to westeward and
will lay the track as far as the grad-
is completed. This decision has been
taken on account of the difficulty of
hauling material and supplies.
