BIT OF TOE
SOISU BONSPIEL
It is estimated that the rail-*) <ys under constructionin Canada and the
Dominion , Government during ' the
present year willbring inanddistribut
upwards of a hundred million dollars.
The C. P. R. will use Irom twenty-five
millions.
The G. T, P. about twenty million.
The «'anadiaa Northern, which has
already secured $ 2, 800, 000, h expected to use $10,000,000. before the year
is out. The Dominion Government will
require about $ 20, 000,000.
Street railways, municipalities and
various enterprises will easily bring the
total to $,100,000,000, All this without
reference to the revenues derived from
th» e.tperfl of natuial product and
commodities, Which witha good cr>p
should amount to another $100,000,000.
Altogether the prospects for this year
in Canada are bright,
in addition to these prospective sources
of prosperity, the outlook or the smmi-
gration of large number of desirable
settlers is of the best, and these in
turn not only brir.g :'n additional resources, but they become permanent
pi-.'ducef, thus adding te Hie future
stability of the country.
The annual Golden Bonspiel opened
on Monday with fifteen rinks entered as

Walker, and McLe.id, skips; Revelstoke 3, and 8 local rinks entered.
Judge Wilson of Cranhrook hnd entered a rink hut w** unable to attend
owing to court duties The Calgary
rinks are strong combinations, a feature
of Col. Walker's rink being the two

most successful in the history of this

If the schools stand in need of additional

to hold good, thnt money devoted to

px'ovides that through a boar., of governors appointed by itseL tiie government will have complete control, not

tliat ihe university shall be non-sectar-

a:; freely available to women as to men.
i-or the rest the bill is concerned with
matters of internal economy of little
public interest. As will he seen, any
question rais.ecl will have to be thrashed
out on the floor of the house, and if the
measure 13 to uecoma law at the end
of what promise!; to be a very short
session there will be little opportunity
for discussion elsewhere than in the
Legislative Assembly. Under the
circumstances we think the govern-

gourcefor which there is a recent pre-
otherwise gft to the sohools, and that; cedsl)t _cin.y the bill through its early

in view of the fact that the government
is pirfeetly able to provide for the
legitimate requirements of the schools
and still make ihe necessary financial
arrangemenfs for a university, cannot
very well be demonstrated.
The proposed foundation of a university, t en, must be considered on its
own merits. Aa a general proposition
a it will b*ngrr-cJ that (he educational
\jystem of the country must be completed soonerorfytilf.N It must be made
possible for ths youth of the province
to pass from tin- primer classjto graduation without lea\ .ig British Columbia.
It is true that but a very small percentage of the children of ihe country will
receive a university education no matter how   great   the facilities,  bit it
stages so that the pros and cons can be
ludy staied and than drop it until next
session, by which time it will have been
thoroughly digestep. A measure of
tuch importance should not be hurried
nor should it be made a party question.

In the "danger area" the severest
discipline is maintained. All entrances
are carefully guarded by searchers who
rigorously examine every individual
that desires to enter, relieving him of
any metallic objects that'may be carried upon his petsn together with
matches and other suspicious objects
which upon coming into contact with
the dangerous chemicals used in this
zone might provoke trouble. No mat-
terhawof ton an e np'oye engaged within t he hill may pass in and out, every
time he enters he must submit to this
preliminary operation.
There are also some 500 girls employed and these are under the charge
of matrons. Hairpins, ordinary pins
shoe buttons, metal pegs within the
soles of the shoes, knitt ng and othei
needles are all religiously barr'd. Their,
hair is tied with braid or ribbon, and
as with the male employes every time
they enter ths danger area they are
searcheil by the matrons.
Within the danger area Ihe various
employes engaged in the different departments or phases of work are garbed in special non-inflammable workin
shits, varying in color according tt
their respective occupation 3.
The mixing is done by worn n, who
knead the ingredients with their hands
as if it were dough, the operation being carried out with complei e thoroughness. The mixture is then picked up

the sieve it resembles a greasy coffe.

combination of the constituent parts

and the same in width. All the buildings for the various phases of the work
are divided in.o small units accommodating from four to six persons. .In
the »artridge house the machines are

comprise a conical hopper, into which
thed.namite is placed, and a small
