From official sources The leader is informed that the tenders
for the building of the aerial tramway, which is to connect the
Tyee Mines with the E. & N. Railway, have been received, and
are now under consideration by the managers.
It is also stated that all details connected with the erection of
the smelter are being pushed forward as rapidly as possible. In
a very short time now operations will be commenced on the site
near Ladj-smith and the same energetic work will be done there.
The Leader's informants also said thai tbe Tyee mine never 5
looked better than it does today, and it is improving as develop-
ment is carried farther down. They are still driving in the solid
ore of the large ore body which was struck last summer. The
main shaft is down 345 feet from the surface, and a large force of
men is being put on, so as to get everything into proper condition
to ship continuously to the Tyee smelter at Ladysmith.
By those who are best able to form an opinion in the matter
it is considered certain that the smelter will be in operation by
the end of the spring.

Mr. P, H, Marshall's Fine Conservatory Destroyed by Fire.
When tbe old gardener employed by
Mr. P. H. Marshall, manager ol Meuri.
Laiier & Hamburger's establishment,
went into the new conservatory recently
completed lor Mr. Marshall la the
grounds at the south tide ol his residence
Saturday night, he found to his alarm
tbat the place wai filled with smoke
and that the futures were in flames.
Summoning assistance he succeeded la
extinguishing tbe fire before it had
taken too firm a hold upon tbe frame*
work of tbe building. Tbe inside of the
conservatory it a total wreck, the
damage to tbe woodwork, etc., amounting to upwaide ol two hundred dollars.
Strange to say very little glass was
broken, not more then half a doaen
plates. But tbe destruction of tbe
choice plants contained in tbe conservatory at the time bl the fire lathe
most eerloui loss. This represents a
cash value of full; $350. Mr. aad Mn.
Marshall, who had woiked so hard to
bring forward tbe flowers, amongit
which were numbered eome rare and
iieautilul blooms, feel the loss of those
fine plants very keenly.
The fire is supposed to have begun on
the under side of one of the lower
shelves, which was dangerously near to
the heating pipe. It ia supposed that
the wood became charred from th. excessive heat, and that a draught fanned
the glowing wood into dame, which
quickly epresd to other portions ol the
liot house,
Mr. and Mrs, Marshall were looking
forward to having all the Hosiers In lull
bloom early in tbe approaching spring,
so thejr disappointment at the annoying
accident may be imagined. Mr. Marshall had drawn attention to tbe dangerous
proximity ol the pipe to the shell, bnt
the matter was unfortunately overlooked,
and this oversight has cost over five
hundred dollars,
The conservatory will be reconstructed
and refurnished with plant,. The
property destroyed was uninsured.

With ro many grave possibilit it
fore thla nation it la the manileat duty
ot every man ln Canada, no matter what
hia sta Ion in life, or his profession, to
trrin l.imsell in tbe all-Important art of
rillti slii'iiting. From the premier down
to tiieuinbgest apprentice working at
tbe lorae or in the coal mines, all should
be good riflemen, and the practice cf
this art ehouid be made compulsory, or'
at least as attractive as possible to all
Mr. Baillie-Grobmau, the famoua
expert in rifle-shooting, who used to
live in BritiBh Columbia, and whose
article! in the Nineteenth Century Review on this subjsct have attracted
wideipread attention throughout the
world, has noted the iact that rifle-
shooting it something ol which the ordinary British man is not fond. It il a
tatk for him to take upthe practice, and
it is difficult to keep him at it long
enough to give him a chance to periect
hit aim. He is not like the Swilser or
the rural Austrian, Or the Tyroiese, who
practice the art ol rifle-shooting Irom infancy, and are certainly the surest shots
in tlie world at tbe shorter distances.
In Canada, however, it should be different, lor there arc eo many incentives,
even in the well, settled Eaaf, to going
out with tho rifle lor a little shooting.
And that ia the very belt kind of ihoot-
ing, that in tbe woodi or field, where the
marksman has to judge hia own distanre
and fire at a moving oh j sot, just as he
would have to do in war. Thie sort ol
shooting tbe military authorities wish
to encourage;itip one oithe lessons of
the Boer war.
The man who can take lid place in
the wood! or on the bare hillside and
make every bullet find ita billet it the
man who ia wanted by the nation when
it cornea to ineetirg enemtei. It .will
not matter much whether the excellent
■hot' be a hunchback, bowlegged
knock-kneed or wanting an eye, if he
can prove that he is a marksman. It ia
probable that there will be no hesitation.
But, oi course it is better tbat the rills
man be a perton of fair physique; lor
skirmishing rations are scanty; it la a
long while between drinks of even the
dirtieit water; great nervoul tension
■trust Ml expected, for the itakei betwern
the contending sharpshooter! are life
and death, and a man has need nf tie
steady, hand and cool brain at that game,

If Canadjans should ever b'l called
upon to defend their home land againat
the invader ihey will have no cause lo
regret the time they spent in making
themselves expert with tho rifle; (or It
iion that weapon, io the handi of her
hardy tone, that Canada's lafety must
rest if it ihould come to war. In British
Columbia almost every man hie eome
acquaintance with firearms and there ie
probably a larger proportion ol good
■hots to the popniallou here than In
any other province in tbe Dominion; be
at; whereat the game hat been terribly
thinned out "back East,"
Consequently iu the event ol a struggle !or the detejice of the country the
BrttsliCohimbiaeorpawould.be lound
as effective aa any under the British
flag. We hope tbat the terrible, day I it
iarofl'wher. Canadian! will hay. to
drop their useful tasks of peace and
buckle on the bandolier, seizs the trusty
rifle, bid "good-bye to the folks" and go
on commando for Canada's sake; but
when it does come we are sure that the
Canadian! will astonish tbe world with
their alacrity in springing to tbe call'
and their proweas In the far-flung fighting line.
Let alllhe Canadians,then, young and
old, look upon it aa a duty to their
country to learn to shoot well.   '•'

tbey think so, bpt they should jus1

tbe exercise of controversial talents.
