Preliminary work looking to the
establishment ol thellriind Trunk Pa-
oific terminus on Kai-en Island has
now begun in real earnest suys the
Vanoouver News-Advertiser. Engineers Pillibury and Hill hnve tnken
up their quarters with a corps ul
assistanli in tbe old Mission village
ul Metlakahtla, on the northern shore
ol Tuck's Inlet. From thoro the
steamer Hustler is engaged in taking
out the necessary supplies to the
townlite ol Prince Rupert. Mr. W,
0. llnys and his Inronian, Mr, Mitchell, have a.so gone up on tho steamer
Gsmusun, and will scloct a site tor a
sawmill and lumber yards iu the
Engineer l'illsbury of the Grand
Trunk engineering staff, has engaged
a number of Indians to clear camping
grounds, and has selected a site un
Kai-en Island lor tho location ol a
wbarl and buildings.
As evidence that the work will pro-
ceed, and that Vancouver will reap
some benefit Irom it, Mr. V. M, Daloe,
the Powell street loat-builder, has
already shipped up a gig, ubout 30 leet
long, for the use ol thc surveyors, and
t, day will send up on the Csmosun a
neit gasoline launch, with a speed of
twelve knots, which should be ol material assistance to the engineers in
plying round the waters of Tuck's
With all these evidences, it is quite
certain that the Grand Trunk Pacific
Company means to keep luith with
the Provincial Govimment, and have
tlio construction ol wharves and other
necessary terminal work well in hand
before the 30th ot June, as the agreement called for. It would almost seem
also as il there were yet some prospect
of conitruction being started from this
end, in spile of stories to the contrary
The contract for the erection ol a
new hoist for tbe Centre Star at Rossland, has been let lo the Nordberg
Manufacturing Company, of Milwaukee, against nine competitors. The
new hoist will, when installed, be the
largest lode-mining hoist in Canada.
It will have a capacity of 1,200 horse
power and will be steam-driven. The
present hoist was found to be inadequate to the requirements of hoisting
the ore and waste of the Centre Star
and War Eagle ground through the
Centre Star shaft. The task ot installing the hoist and making the connection between the two mines, will
occupy several months' time. It is
thought, however, that it will be completed in six months from the present
The lead bounty act has until 1908
to run, and it would be pertinent to
the question to add an amendment to
the original act. Thia is, to require
that the amount so paid ahull be expended in bona fide development work.
The inspector 61 lead bounties should
be required to certify in each case that
the amount drawn has been so expended. Were the amounts paid, so
expended, it would be certain to produce a better result than it has already.
There are properties in the Sandon
camp which have drawn liberally on
the Dominion treasury, and Irom all
the apparent facts in the case the
money has been spent outside the
country. In other cases it has been
put to worse uses. Were the condition
compulsory and strictly enforced, properties that have closed down might
now be open and on the shipping list.
The extra cost ol enforcing the
amended terms could come out ol the
amount allowed for the (ull expenditure. The idea is a correct one in
principle, The people who are taxed
to pay this bounty would be justified
in requesting that it be expended in a
way that would show a sure return on
tbe investment, instead of allowing
the money to go out of tlie oountry as
it has in numerous cases.—Sandon

Saturday and presented their claim
that women be allowed to vote. Only

March F.lks of America
There is a decided increase in the
interest that outsiders are taking in
Britisli Columbia as a fruit growing
country, and a great movement is
taking place there in that connection.
Tbe land is king bought very rapidly
in the iruit (rowing districts. Places
that a year or two ago were thought
lie suitabl" only for mining arc
proving to be very valuable for orchards. A visitor to Nelson recently
said that the matter that impressed
him most was tlie interest taken by
the people ol that mining town in
iruit gardens. Tliis industry has
proven itself to lie most profitable to
the grower. The wonderful fertility
jol the soil,combined with the mildness
iol the climate, produces a perfect eon-
will ; dition which insures wonderful crops.
The enormoui territory tu the east
provides a market for every pound of
fruit ibat can Is- raised at a market
price far greater than received hy any
Other fruit growing conatry in America. At llie present time tliis market
Ii being largely supplied by Ontario,
Washington and Oregon, The distance and time laved In transportation
Irom the east and doty from the south
gives this locality a  great  advaiilsge.
Tlie Kootenay valley is what, they call
in Britisli Columbia  Moist  Valley,
Irrigation ii not required.    Ill  tlie

'during the auininer gives source to
| numerous creeks which are utilised
lor household purposes. The meteorological record shows the duration ol
bright sunshine is not exceeded by
any other locality. Tin: winters are
mild and it is only in occasional years
