The members ol the congre
gaiion of St. John's church
(Anglican), will undoubtedly (eel
that tbey owe a deep debt of
gratitude to two ol llieir number,
Messrs. Grahame ami Win. I lank-
land, who for some tinie past have
been devoting themselves to tlie
task of beautifying llie interior ol
tlie church building.
The work which was undertaken
voluntarily and as a free-will offering, must be seen before one can
appreciate either its extent ur the
amount ol pains-taking labor involved in its successful accomplishment,
Tbe chancel ceiling has been
divided into nine panels, each
bearing some ecclesiastical symbol,
Above the east window tbe wall
has been laid ofl in a single large
panel with the cross and crown in
tlie centre, and Alpha and Omega
on either side.
Below the simple fringe, done
in soft colors on a white ground,
the walls of the chancel have been
painted a plain terra-cotta down to
the wainscot, which in this part of
tlie church liave been stained a
slightly darker shade than the
choir stalls or the wainscot in tbe
nave. The altar jail is finished in
bronze and mahogany and tlie
floors in imitation mosaic, with
marbled steps.
The obscuring of tlie windows in
three shades bas subdued and
softened the light and helps to
convey that sence of peace and
restfulness which sliould be felt in
every bouse of God, while the
finished worl, strengthens the idea
of prominence.
While it is true that tlie work
was done lo the glory of God, the
vicar and his people will find in it
uol only a cause for thanksgiving
Imt also a source of very real en
couragement in the undertaking ol
the many tasks still to be accomplished. Before long the steady
growth ol the congregation will
necessitate the lurther enlargement
of the church, and this will, of
course, involve tlie installation of
a pipe organ. Moreover tlie need
of a church ball is making itself
increasingly felt, and it will soon
be necessary to build a rectory on
the property now being purchased
for that purpose.
These things will necessitate au
immense amount ol i-cll sacrificing
effort, Much, however, has been
already accomplished, so that ex*
perienco and Ihe knowledge 0
what two men havi* j list done by
tlieir own voluntary cllurls will no
iluiibi go far1 towards encouraging
the Bteadily increasing congregs
Hull   lu  lace  clieerfllllj   llu   alalia
cullies siill belore them.
Vim    may   talk   all   you   wanl
about indifferent people, but thc
people wiili the enthusiasm are
tin nnt ■* who make a hit with us.
A man nevt 1 does justice tu him
sell as an entertainer when his
wile is around,
None ol us are as important as
we think we are,
We defy you to hide your lool
streak a month.
None ol us come within thirty
days of doing what we sliould do.
Always remember that knockers
are at work on you when you least
expect it.
" Hurrah 1" exclaimed the in
ntor of predigested hay, "a man
lias lived four days in a mine on
nothing but oil and wood." "Well,
what's in that to shout about ? "
" Plenty, You're Stupid, It gives
me a new idea for a breakfast
food,"
The North Vancouver Liberal
association held its annual meeting on Wednesday night at the
Palace hotel. There was a good
turnout of members. President

Messrs. i , Hewitt and A. N.

ilioriir dykes, nnd occasionally
limestone ovi rlaya tin other formations. Tlm property is admirably situati '1 li nomical mining, as lhe mi n i il body runs
through a mountain Irom tide-

gives a lool in depth lor every loot
driven   ahead.    Thirty  leet  ol
wharl in Locke Day will allow any
ocean-going vessel to come iu and
load al a wharl in a land-locked
harbor.   There is an abundance of
timber lor mining purposes, ami it
is of a size thai can be used either
lor  a  mill   lor   lumber or for
milling timbers.   There is ample
water,  and  the   (all   lias   head
enough   to   give   a   reasonable
amount of power.
The Jordan Copper  Group   is
located across the bay from the
Larsen   claims   on  the   Swede
group, Mere a large ore body is
exposed, The property promises
to become one ol the largest pro-
tluiiis in the district. Develop
nnni work on a larger scale wil!
soon be commenced, The property
is owned by Dr. A. McKay Jordan,
nl Vancouver,
Adjoining the Jordan Copper
group is lhe Sullivan and Steven
group, which is also in a
slr.iiglit line willi the Swede group.
This, as Well as the other properties in the vicinity of the
Swede group, promises all to
turn om exceptionally well,
Several mining engineers have ex-
aitilni'ti these properties and all are
ol the opinion that the discoveries
on Klun Kwoi Hay are amongst
the largest on the 1'acilic coast.
The vein in the Swede group also
extends over OD the McEachran and
Wintermttte groups, where about
lm to 75 leet ol nice bomite ore
lias been uncovered with good
silver values. While not much
development work has yet been
done on the adjoining properties |
there is no reason to believe that
it will not nun out just as rich as
the ri st.
About 30 miles east ol the Swede
gioup is Hut Sprim! island, located
011 which is a hot sulphur spriug.
This spot, no doubt, in the near
future, will be well patronized by
the residents ol the island.
Mr. Mnore, ol Seattle, is putting
up a sawmill on the south end of
Kiinisltwa Inlet, about, lo miles
from KlnnKwoi bay.with a capacity
nl about 100,000 feet. The plans
and estimates lor the sawmill were
drawn by The Mitchell Machinery j lon [nletl Xbcre are two paralel

The next importanl mining dis* Thit properly is well situated lor
time the steamers go first north
from this port to Portland canal
nnd then across lo Queen Charlotte island, making the trip in ten
days, II a direct boat sailed the
trip to Jedway could he made in
one and a half or two days.
The Jedway mining districi was
found about two years ago, when
Ike Thompson and L", T. Watson
discovered the Copper Queen
group, situated about .(,500 leet
from Jedway, al au altitude ol
1,200 leet, and including about 20
mineral claims. This group of
claims ate now owned and operated
by Mr. [ohn S. McMillin, of Roche
Harbor Lime Compiiiiy, Wash.,
who paid the owners Si.15,000 for
the claims.
The character ol this ore is a
heavy magnetite, with chalcopyrite, with ahoul 5 per cenl. copper
and tWO to three tlollais in gold,
A contract for a tunnel has heen
let Which Will tap the ore hotly
about 150 leet below the present
workings. The length ol lliis
tunnel will be about 200 feet, and
the tunnel at present is iu
about 125 leet. The clearing (or
the ii'iial tram is completed, and
by the lime the tunnel has reached
the ore body, the construction on
the installation of the :erial tram
will be commenced,
Owing to the fluxing character
ol this ore, a contract with the
Tacoma smelter has been arranged,
whereby the smelter has agreed to
treat il Ior nothing.
Among other mining claims adjoining the Copper Queen is the
Taite and Iron Mountain, owned
by L. T. Watson. This one is
similar to that on Copper Queen,
and the showing is just as good.
About six miles southwest ol
Jedway is Houston Inlet, and on
which there are numerous promising claims located, but not yet developed, The most promising arc
those owned by II. E, Hotline,
Frank Watson, Ike Thompson,
Wilson McKinnon, Mr. Applc-
greec and Mr. McEachran,
lona group, owned by Messrs.
Ike Thompson and Wilson McKinnon, are some of the most promising of claims discovered in lions*

owned by L. T. Watson, N. II.
Sivurt, and Mr. Uoiirnc, ol Van
COUVer, The steamers calling are
the Princess Beatrice and Amur,
which boats only call twice 1
month, The island is in gnat
need of bitter transportation, and
il is t" be hoped that bj m Sl yeai
when prospecting ami development work will in* carried on on a
art;' r s. alt that a direct beat will
ic put on the run.    At the present
economical mining, being alioul
tlm r liuiiths of a mile from tlie
heat h, at an altitude ol some Imo
feet alitivc sea level. The claims
are all covered with an excellent
growth ol limber.
Mr. Frank Watson's Surprise
group promises to become good
producers. These claims aie
about half a mile Irom salt water
and at about 150 leet altitude.
These claims are reported sold lo
thc |J. A. Kenning syndicate, of
Vancouver, for $50,000.
Aboui three miles north of Jedway is Ikcda Hay, located in a
land-In kctl harbor ami about one
mile Irom lhe beach.    It was dis*
covered by soma Japanese fishermen while fishing lor abalonesin
the bay, when some good copper
float was taken up from thc bottom. The character of this ore is the
Same as on the other mines iu this TIIE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C.
district, that is, a heavy magnetite
with chalcopyrite, carrying about
ten per cent, copper and seven to
ten dollars in gold, About 1,000
tons ol ore have lieen shipped to
tlie Ladysmith smelter, and the returns given were on an average as
above mentioned. The smelter
charges being Ji.30 per ton, and
freight from the mine to the
smelter S2.50, by C, P. K. boats.
Tbe freight, will, no doubt, in the
near future, be reduced to one
dollar per ton,
The property is owned liy Awaya,
Ikcda & Company, Limited,
with ullices at 41 Davis Chambers,
Vancouver.
The company are awaiting tlie
completion of tlieir bunkers lie-
fore any more ore will be shipped,
as tliey intend to ship in bulk*
One hundred and twenty-live men
are employed at the mine, all of
which arejapanese with the exception of the foreman and teamster.
Lasl summer Fuktinositke Yamada,
mining engineer, land Nobuyo
Fukuchi, geologist, both of Tokyo,
Japan, examined the mine for a
large mining syndicate. It is reported that one-third interest of
the property has been sold to lllis
lirm for Si,500,000.
Across the mountain, in an
easterly direction from Ikeda Hay,
is Collison Hay, about one and a
hall miles distant.
The characrer of the ore here is
the same as iu Ikeda Hay, Harriet Harbor and Houston Inlet,
Numerous very promising claims
have here been located by J. Car-
lyle, Tom Daken, Ike Thompson,
Mr. Gordan, L. T, Watson, Capt.
Locke, Mr. Alex. Ferguson, Oseai
Loring and J. R, Leckie, ol Vancouver.
The Carlyle properly, owned by
U. J. Leckie Syndicate, of Vancouver, is the only one where
any extensive development work
lias been done. There are about
30 men at the present time
employed there.
Mr. Joe Trethewy, tbe millionaire Cobolt mining man and
his brother, Arthur Trethewy,
had a bond on the property,
the latter was in charge. Two
hundred and fifty thousand dollars
has been refused for the property.
A. few days agu Col. C. I'.
Newberry took over the bond held
by Messrs. Trethewy on the Carlyle property, and intends lo push
the development as last as. men
aud money will allow. The con
sideratiou has not, us yet, been
made public.
Adjoining the Carlyle property
is the Tunder mining claim, owned
by Ike Thompson and L. T, Watson, wliich gives good promise ol
becoming a heavy producing mine.
Some development work has
already been done.
On Carpenter bay, which is
alioul four miles from Collison
Bay, some piomising properties
have been located, amongst which
arc Mr. Young's and the Gray
brothers,' with about ten claims,
as well .ib Mr. Gonlau's property.
Some extensive development work
is expected to take place here in
the spring,
The Old shall mine has been
idle Ior 40 or 50 ycajs, and was
last year re*discovered. A syndicate nl Victoria men, among
whom ate Messrs. A. Young, C.
W. Hlackstock, A. G. Sargeson,
K. F. Lang, Mr. Janes ami others,
in v."11.mr, at bailing out the shaft
and are at present down over
200 leel. Who tbe original
operators ol the mine were
nobody knows It is impossible to learn (rom the Indians
who worked the mine, and how
long ago it was. However, tne
old dump is covered by moss and
a dense growth ol vegetition, thus
showing it has been idle lor a
great many years. Many think
that tlic mystery is buried in the
bottom ol the shall, that lhe
skeletons may bc found there.
About ten men arc at present
working clearing it out. It is
located at the northeast end of the
island, at the waters edge, on
Copper Hay.
Several other good prospects
have been discovered and located
within the last two months.
There are about 350 prospectors
on the island.
On Copper island, in Skinctittle
inlet, there is an old shaft where
rich copper ore was taken out
some 50 years ago and shipped to
tile old country.
The geological formation around
Jedway is principally green stone
shist.
Very little prospecting lias been
done on thc west coast of Moresby
island.
NOTES.
Provincial Mineralogist Robinson will submit a report on Moresby island next month, which will
treat in a scientific manner the
mineral ores to be lound there.
F. B. Jones, of Skedigate, a
well known timber cruiser, lias 34
limits, all good timber within a
range ol two miles ol the water.
Mr. G. K. Jorgensen, the well-
known surveyor, of Vancouver,
intends to make Qu eenCbarlotte

THE=
HANK OF VANCOUVER
(To be Incorporated by Act of Parliament of Canada.)
CHARTER APPLIED FOR
CAPITAL, 2,000,000.00
This proposed Bank is being organized and will have its head
office in Vancouver, with its Directors chosen by the subscribers to its
stock at tha organization meeting.
GENERAL
The Western Provinces, and British Columbia
in Particular, have for some considerable time felt tlie urgent
need of an institution such as the proposed Bank of Vancouver.
The formation of new industries, and the development of those already
established, has been very seriously retarded for want of ordinary financial accommodation, and the primary object of this new Hunk will be
to alleviate the situation by largely confining ils operations to the
splendid field awaiting it in the Pacific Coast provinces and more
especially in British Columbia.
The Bank proposes to do business on lhe Safe and well laid
down lines of the old established Banks, and will earn their respect
and good will by a continuation of this policy.
The Bank of Montreal has its Head Ollice in Montreal.
Tho Bank of Toronto has its Head Ollice in Toronto.
The Bank of Ottawa has its Head Ollice in Ottawa,
The Bank of Hamilton has its Head Ollice in Hamilton.
The standing of these Batiks is beyond (jueslion.

Think of "STILENFIT" OVERCOATS at $12 to $30.
Put them alongside of the built-to-order kind
at $20 to $50—the only discernable difference will be the price.
Of the very newest fabrics in rough, smooth
and fancy coatings, suitable for all occasions,
extra long or boxy style, or regular lengths.
These Coats are made as only the highest
price custom garments are made, finished
to the trying on stage, completed and delivered the same day.
