spending   | pies'    money.      I'he
lestion arose .1 - ongideration ol
the memorial of the local boai I ol
trustees   for   the  submission of   a
bylaw to  .-■ .-■     - 10,000   for  91 hool
purposi - n ,-eral   ■:   the   aldermen
submission of a bylaw if only bo-
cause the trustees hnve no initial
ri.ulii to ilo this, it lieing the function uml duly of the oouncil, The
council lins however, no uptiun
when the submission of a bylaw is
re.|iii'Mi'il. ll is not even the duty
ni the aldermen, as such, to criticize proposals of trustees though us
ratepayers they have the sume
right as others. It i-> the prerogative mul duty of the trustees to
explain their proposals to the ratepayers and justify their undertakings with the sume explicitness
Unit is asked uf the mayor und
aldermen when handling the money
of the people.
It sometimes happens under the
present system that the council is
blamed for increases in taxation
for which they ure in no direct
way responsible, Theaverage taxpayer, un receiving hit- notice of
assessment looks hurriedly over
the items till he reaches the totul
and notes, by cuinpiirisun the raise
in thu rate on the ilullur uf assessment, Ile rarely analyses his account to see lu what speciflo department of civic outlay the increase
must beattributed, While hemay
have been in perfect accord with a
heavy-expenditure by the trustees
and would on second or third
thought suiiction such again, it is
ihe council und not tho trustees
whom he holds responsible fur the
addition to the load of his civic
financial burdens,
The suggestion has frequently
been made lhat the law be changed
so us tu place the trustees in the
same relation to the people in the
matter of civic finances as the
council and giving the former
power to submit its own bylaws
with the sequent responsibility of
these. We do not think thut such
a change will appear expedient.
It would involve the opening of
separate ollices by the iiustees; the
employment of un accounting staff
und other things which would materially increase the cost of administration. Moreover, the separation
of the financial functions of trustees and council might confuse the
ratepayer and oause him to lose
sight of the trend of expenditure as
a whole. Under the existing system the council and city treasurer
act as an auditing and checking
commission for the trustees and
the whole financial machinery of
the city passes under une review
and iniiile public in the treasurer's
iiniiiiiii statement.
\\ ith u thorough understanding
of the powers of the trustees and
the limitations of the council and
mi ever presenl reci>\lection uf these
we see 110 need for confusion to
arise. Ii shutilil also be remembered Hint 11 In law -ul.ini!!.'.I ni
the request of the trustees is not
necessarily a council's money bylaw nor does   its
the possessors of rich art 11 ml other
treasures to dispose of these because of ibe heavy succession
duties thnl will be entailed. The
Duke of Norfolk accepted an American offer for lhe Holbein nuistei-
piece on this account and it is
rumored that many of the richest
men in England will do the sume.
To sell art treasures so as to spend
the cash during life would seem lo
be one of the ways of evading a
state obligation.
A much mure likely and sensible outcome of the new levy will
probably be the looking to foreign
countries for investments which
can be made in the names of scions
mul offspring and the directing of
large sums of hitherto unexploited
capital into channels where it may
do sume goud as fn the develop
ment of colonial resources. The
London bankers und others who
Hunt Government and other foreign
loans slate that the new lax on
such transactions covers the entire
margin between profit und loss nnd
that such deals will hereafter go
through I'aris and New York.
So far us Canada is concerned a
very slight revival in speculative
and investing activities would give
a boom to the country. Thut rich
and enriching opportunities are
awaiting investors need scarcely be
pointed uu', and, if as announced,
it is the determination of English
capitalists to use a large part 01
their money iu de.e.oping some 01
these, the only erne that need be
exercised is to protect them from
the clutches of wildcatters and unscrupulous stock brokers of the
irresponsible type within Inch the
country wus a few years ago so
numerously cursed. With this
proviso the drifting of English
capital to any part of the American
continent cannot but improve industrial nnd commercial conditions
in the whole.
SPYING OUT THE LAND
A carloud of Winnipeg business
men, part of the contingent that is
now touring the west passed thru'
Revelstoke on Saturday nigbl on
their way to the coast spying out
the land ana incidentally enlisting
the sympathies and getting the
promises of co-operation and dollars to help exploit Winnipeg's
dream uf a World's Fair for 1912,
The "Selkirk Centennial" is the
patriotic memorial upon which
the sentimental considerations of
the occasion will be founded. As
for the rest, it is a business matter
and is being treated us such. Revelstoke, us usual, had the inilul-

Why Christie's Biscuits
are the best
riOOI) BISCUITS are made
by more than one or two manufacturers, and can be baked from any
one of a few excellent brands of flour,
but   the  Christie   way   is  different.
The best millers in Canada ship us samples of
their flour twice a year, or oftcner. We test the
samples and select the best brands for our purpose.
We blend the brands which we have proved best—
keep on blending and testing by actual baking until
we get a dough good enough to sustain, or better,
the Christie reputation.
Kvery ounce of raw material is carefully analysed
before it can  pass into the mixing room.
The best sugar, pure, fresh creamery butter, new
sweet milk and delicious cream these pure ingredients mixed with onr blend of flour, in the Christie
scientific way, yields that delightful, appetising crisp-
ness and delicate flavor which has made
Christie's Biscuits
favored above ;il 1 other table dainties from ocean tooccan.
Yes,  Christie's  are  the  best  biscuits   money  can
buy, yet they cost no more than just ordinary biscuits.

THE PHOENIX TUNNEL
How the Hole is Being Bored
Under Mineral Hills
A lenmrkable machine 'a being
uaed in boring the 1 umel from Greenwood to tap the deep ore veiue uuder
the mountain between tbat e ty and
Phoenix. It is calhd the Sigafoos
tunnelling machine and ie described at
follows:
The machine is 20 leet long, 8 feet
in dian.etsr and weighs 58,000 pounds
It consists cf two frame heads, connected by a hollow 6 inch centre shaft
and eight brace rods. There are ten
pulverizing stamps, su arranged aB to
pulverize the whole breast of an 8-foot
tunnel. The machine leaves no core.
All the material is crushed line enough
to bo Mushed out by the streams of
water which are c instantly led through
pipes to the cutting face.
Each etiimp consists of a 4 iuch
shaft, upon the front end of which
is the stamp heap. The total weight
of the etmiip-head and shaft is 1,720
pounds.
A revolving cam engages tho tappet
aud draws the stamp back, compressing 11 powerful spring upon the stamp
shaft, which springs back when released and produces arotatinggrindiug
blow, varying from 200 to 4,000 lbs.
Each stamp delivers from 80 to 200
blows a minute, varying with the
speed ol the machine.
Electric power is used to operate
tbe device. The rate at which the
machine advances is about 125 leet a
day through the hardest rock, with
correspondingly greater speed in softer
varieties. Witb tbis machine and
two men the work of 100 men oan be
dour, and done lar better than by tbe
old method of drilling and blasting.
The machine bores a perfectly round
smooth 8-foot tunnel. There is no
blasting, no powder or fuse requisite,
oo disturbance of surrounding formations The tunnel is also ventilated
by the water, which is driven in under
pressure aud releases its air at the
breast. Not only this, but tbe machine
pulierizes the rock, ore, etc., and
delivers it back through the pipe,
mixed with water, all prepared for
amalgamation or concentration. The
stamp-mill is, therefore, where this
machine is used, a thing unknown in
tbe past.
In operation the machine constantly
rotates, thus bringing tbe stampbeadB
into contact witb all parts of tbe
breast.
Tbe whole operation is automatic.
Two men to watch the machine and
the motor, repair possible damage and
regulate tbe feed, can do the work of
100 men with the old-style methods.
Tbe Sigafoos tunnel borer is, on the
whole, one of the big epoch markers
in tbe advance of man's conquests
over nature.
Coldblooded But Legal
Bill Miner, Shorty Day aud other
bold-up men, who take tlieir lives in
tbeir own hands when they rob a
train, are merely amateur robbers
when compared with some ol tbe
courts and some of tbe legal fraternity
and the latter are in no danger ot
having the penitentiary gates yawning
for tbem, remarks tbe Rossland Miner.
Tbe Toronto Globe says that an
estate of $50,000 has been wound up
in Hamilton, Out., and the law costs
were $40,000. "No doubt," addB the
Globe, "the legal principles involved
and followed are adjusted to a nicety,
and everything was from a professional
standpoint, above criticism. But the
public, wbo judge by results, will say
the ciictimstauce points to tbe needs
of law reform." Relieving widows aud
orphans of their valuables seeniB to be
a comparatively easy and perfectly
safe transaction when an estate gets
into tbe probate department of some
courts. The Hamilton case should be
investigated by the criminal authorities ol Ontario iu tbe hope tbat the
parties who took four-fifths of the
estale might be lauded iu tbe penitentiary — Ex.

Alberta Preparing for Big Event;Seattle   Caterers  Enter Com-
Nexi July bine to Play Fair
Skati-le, Wash., May 12.—Visitors
*t the Alaaka-Ylikon-Pacilio Exposition, which opens at Seattle June 1
and closes October 16, will be able to
.lino to tbeir satisfaction at the city's
leading oafee and restaurants at normal prices. To leave uu doubt us to
the working out of this oomniendable
•pirit. 1 ut 1 ha part of Seattle's caterers
they receutly met and voted as a body
an agreement binding all restaurants,
ciiles, grill ana hotel men to maintain
tbe present prices throughout tbe
exposition time, and no member of
the organization to which the oaterore
belong will be allowed to take advantage of the opportunity to reap additional profits as has beeu done, despite
protests, in previous exposition cities
To the hired help must be given
much of the credit for the continuanco
ol lo v priees. Waiters, cooks and
helpers ol all kinds bave entered into
an agree milt that the present scale ol
wages shall uot be tampered with
during the Fair.
Seattle will not only have a remarkable, but will be able to accommodate
the influx of visitors in a way that
will be a cause for lasting satisfaction.
Hotels are many and reasonable, and
with fixing of normal charges at the
eating houses from the most aristocratic to humble luncb counter, the
tourists may have no fear of finding
accommodations.
Satisfied With Budget
During the budget debate iu the
House ol Commons Mr. Lloyd-George,
Chancellor of the Exchequer, Baid the
Government bad every reason to be
satisfied witb the reception ol the
budget. Commercial centres did not
seem to be affected by it. Even ex-
Premier Balfour, tbe acuteet Parliamentary critic of the present generation, did not Bay a word against
three-fourths of the proposals. The
Chancellor cites foreigu instances in
justification of high taxes and licenses
especially in the United States, while
New York State, he said, specially
taxed land values. He declared that
the budget proposals would result in
1010 in a substantial surplus, which
would be appropriated to pay the
inevitably largely increased naval
bill.
The province of Alberia is making
unusual efforts to place its forthcoming provincial exhibition at Cagmy
in the very forefront rank of provincial
shows. Tbe exhibition is 10 he held
at Calgary from July 5 to 10 inclusive
and the citizens of Calgary are puttii g
their shoulders to the wheel in their
usually energetic manner. In their
endeavors to make tbe Fair as widespread in ite influence as possible and
in order to make its features aB educative respecting tbe resources of the
country as possible, the cooperation
of Revelstoke and other British Columbia cities is being sought:
Last year the Revelstoke portion of
the Dominion Exposition at Calgary
was one of the most attractive of the
sectional displays aud did much to
place tho products of tbe city and
district in the full litre of big adver
tisetnent.
Tbe material advantages of cooperation with Alberta in the matter
ol an exhibit can scarcely be reckoned
as it iB from the country tributary to
the city over the hills that much ol
the market for B.C. fruit may be
expected. While the big Seattle
exposition will no doubt attract a
large number of visitors (rom the
interior of British Columbia, thiB will
in no way detract from the intercut
tbat will be maintained in tbe pro
vincial shows. Let the city play its
part wisely in the forthcoming display.

Inter-Provincial   Conference
It is not improbable, Bays tho Toronto Glube, that another inter-provincial conference may be beld in
Canada thia year, probably in tbe
early autumn.
Wbile no ollicial arrangements have
been announced, it will be recalled
that some months apo a dispatch was
published Irom tbe west intimating
that British Columbia purposed making a bid lor the entertaining ol tbe
Provincial Premiers, aud it is regarded
as not unlikely tbat tbe meeting will
be hold iu tbe capitaljif the far western province. Many matters ol im
pnrtance IM likely to be dealt with at
the conference, tho outstanding business being a united definition as tu
the jurisdiction ol the provinces. The
reference iu the prorogation speech ol
Ontario's Lieut-Governor to the desirability of securing "a permanent
understanding ' is believed to be in
contemplation ol some iti li united
inter-provincial action.

The Copper Handbook
(A review]
Volume VIII (1908) of the Copper
Handbook, published by Horace J.
Stevens, who has reached tbe position
ol a foremost authority on all questions dealing with the mining, refining and marketing of capper, has
reached thiB otlice. To those who are
familiar with Mr. Stevens' former
publications under this title it will be
atillici. nt to say that the present
volume is in every way a masterpiece
on the subject matters treated. It is
much larger than previous editions
and ia as fully up to date in its treatment of tbe various mines aB any ol its
predecessors notwithstanding the considerable additional matter that had
to be reviewed.
To those unfamiliar with the former
volumes it may be said that the Copper Handbook is a complete compendium on every eubject associated witb
even the thought ol capper beginning
witb tbe history uf that metal and
dealing exhaustively witb its chemistry, geology, mineralogy, mining,
milling and concentration, subatitutti
for and the uses of. Following these
iB a comprehensive description ol tbe
copper deposits of tbe various countries where the metal is louud wbile
following this ib au alphabetical list
of the copper mines of the wo.ld with
a complete statement of the present
condition and commercial statue of
each. This list, as may be surmised,
is of great length, but in no part does
it give evidence uf careless work or
unauthoritative statement. This chapter takes up 1,185 pages of the book
and deals with some 6,757 properties.
It has been completely re-written Bince
tbe earlier editions. The book is a
valuable addition to any library, but
more especially to th .so desiring technical information of tbe sort afforded.
The selling price of the volume is
$5, in a strong buckram bindiug and
tbeir selling plan is unique as the
book is sent to anyone ordering it
from any part of the world without a
penny in advance, the publisher evon
prepaying postal charges. The purchaser is allowed a week for inspection
of the volume, after which its return,
il unsatisfactory is accepted in lull
payment of the aame. Otherwise a
remittance ol $5 covers tbo cost. Anyone interested in copper or in copper
shares will find the volume invaluable
as an inspection ol its contents will
conclusively demonstrate. The address ol the publisher is 558 Sheldon
Boilding, Houghton, Mich., U.S.A.
