Wednesday night on the Lower
Arrow Lakes of Robert Kyle, a trapper,
living at Brooklyn. The deceased was

Deer Turk. He was an Irishman, 45
years old, and leaves a wile and family,
The wile is very ill, but has relations
either in Rossland or Nelson.
London, Feb. 16.—The first official
information ol tbe Irish Bill was contained in yesterday's parliamentary
papers in the lorm ol notice by
Augustine Birrell, Irish Secretary, ol
the intention ol tlie government to
introduce a bill at an early date to
provide an Irish Council.
St. Peteusiiuug, Feb. IC—General
Kuropatkin's history of (be Russo-
Japanese war, which was confiscated
by the Russian government, has
become acceptable. It contains
amazing revelations of disorganization
and incapacity, and even disobedience
of specific orders.
London, Feb. 16—It waB learned today that the semi-official statement
o! yesterday to the effect that Admiral
Lord Charles Beresford, who is at present in the United States, had declined
to accept the Channel t'eet, relerred

and since then an agreement entirely
satisfactory to Lord Charles has been
reached with the Admiralty.
Judge and Two Captains Sitting on Noted Case in Vancouver.
Vancouver, Feb. 15.—For the lirst
time in the history of the courts of
British Columbia a judge with two
nautical assessors is hearing a civil
suit, a consolidated suit, six being
rolled in one, with a total damage
claim ol over .f7ii,000.
On the right ol Mr. Justice Martin
sits Commander John T. Walbran, ol
the fisheries protective service, and on
hiB left Captain James Douglas Warren, a well-known retired master mariner of Victoria.
These are the plaintiffs and tbe
amounts they seek:
Robert Henderson Bryce, Ior the
loss of his wile, a passenger, $5,000.
J. O. Benwell and Mrs. Benwell, lor
the loss of a son, Charles, a passenger,
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Crawford, for
the loss of a snn, W. H. Crawford, a
deckhand on the Chehalis, $20,000.
Umakichi Yamaguubi, as administrator of estate of his brother Sadaki-
clii Yamaguclii, a fireman on the
Chehalis, $10,000.
Captain J. K. Howes ol tbe Chehalis, unstated damages Ior injuries
and loss cf personal property.
Cyrus A. Dean, engineer ol the Chehalis, similar claim, damages Bought
Volumes ol the evidence both in the
ollicial inquiry and tl.e trial of Capt.
Griffin, are liefore the dozen lawyers
in the case, and already there are indications that the united case has just
begun the rough and rugged journey
to the judicial foot uf the throne.
The case may last a couple of weeks
month with anjaverage ol 15.93 hours
per night, and that the plant had
been closed down for 65 hours owing
to slush ice, Both communications
were filed.
Ko business of an important nature
was brought up. The mayor questioned the advisability ol holding a
tax sale early this year, seeing that
there were many arrears of taxes due
and a sale had not been held Ior a
long time. Tbe matter was finally
left in the hands of the finance committee to take up the question and
report to the council.
The question of a city solicitor was
brought up and after considering the
matter the council decided that the
mayor and city clerk be instructed to
get legal advice from Scott & Briggs
when necessary for the year 1907.
Aid. Howson suggested that a team
should be purchased by tl.e city for
civic work, saying thut money had
been wasted in hiring the teams
necessary to do the work.
Aid. Abrahamson said that tbe public works committee had a proposal
to buy two teams, a grader and a rock
crusher and tbey would submit their
proposal at the next meeting.
The meeting then closed.
The regular meeting ol the city
council was held last night, Mayor
Brown and Aid. Abrahamson, Howson, Trimble, Stone and Woodland
present. Chas. J, Aman was acting
city clerk in the absence ol II. Floyd
who is away at Nelson.
The minutes of the lost regular
meeting and also of the special meeting werc adopted as read.
Communications were received from
T. Bain, chief nf police, reporting fire
alarms working correctly; and from
Robert Gordon, superintendent at the
puwer house, reporting that the dynamos bad run 29 nights during tl.e last
Family of Four Succumb to
Bitter Cold in Alberta.
Edmonton, Feb. 14—A family of
four souls have been frozen to death
in a shack it. tl.e Buffalo Lake district. The police are investigating
the affair. The family consists of a
man, sick and unable to stir, his wile
and two children. It is said that the
woman was found dead with her feet
in the oven, and the rest of the family
dead around her. The details are
conflicting, but it looks very much as
if some grim tragedy of this bitter
winter is really at the bottom ol these

The anniversary of the foundation of the Order will be celebrated
on Tuesday, Feb. 19th, when an
enjoyable social time will be spent
by Knights and Pythian Sisters and
c. w, o. w.
The Woodmen have had a busy week
of it, as Sovereign Ramplin, Head
Manager and Fast Head Consul Commander ol the Order has been visiting
tl.e local camp. There was a good
turnout at tl.e lodge room at Wednesday's meeting, aud several new
members were initiated. Sovereign
Ramplin addressed the members on
the order, telling ol the early struggles
of the pioneers in founding the Woodmen, which, though the youngest
society ol its kind in Canada, has
grown to be the strongest, and is increasing at a greater rate than any
other order in the west. Sovereign
Ilampljn expects to visit the camp
again in April.
Play in the different competitions
is narrowing down to thc semi-finals,
the interest consequently becoming
keener. The most interesting game
of the week was that on Thursday
night when Brock and Robertson met
in the final for the Burns Cup, which
was witnessed by a largo number ol
■ p.-ct.itnrs. Robertson made a poor
start and it looked as though Brock
would have a walk-over. Alter thc
fust lew ends however Robertson set-
lied down and eventually won out by
11-5. The game was much closer than
the score indicates, each end being
keenly contested. The following were

From Wreck Come
Ashore in Coffins of Ice.—
—None of the Rescued Are
Likely to Succumb.
Block Island, R. I., Feb. 14.—
The harvest ol the bodies of the
victims of the steamer Larchmont
which sank in collision with the
three-masted schooner "Harry
Knowlton," lato Monday night in
Block Island Sound, proceeded
bIowIv and with difficulty along
the icy shoreB of the island during
the night nnd early part of to-day,
owing to the darkness. Up to 8
o'clock this morning, however, 51
bodies encased in colline of ice have
beed gathered in by coast patrols
and vessels sent to the scene. The
list of the survivors still stood at
Purser Oscar Young of Providence still maintained that there
were 125 or 150 paBsengers on
board tlie steamer when she left
Providence for New York, and
most of the survivors who were
able to express an opinion were
inclined to support his figures
rather than those of Captain G. W.
McVety of the Larehmant, who
estimated the number of passengers
at from 50 to 75. From some of
the surviving ollicers it was learned
that the Larchmont carried a crew
of forty men of whom only ten are
accounted for. This means that
out of a total of from 150 to 200
persons on board the Larchmont
nine passengers and ten sailors
have survived. Their condition is
pitiable, but the two physicians
who had been in almost constant
attendance upon the sufferers,
express confidence early to-day
that none ol the rescued were
likely to succumb.
The grim factors of horror print,
ed by the survivors were relieved
by the touches ol heroism and sell-
sacrifice on the part of the crew
and some of the passengers. Nearly
all the surviving passengers interviewed agree that the crew and
officers behaved well.
Many never reached the deck.
They were suffocated below in their
quarters by the steam, or drowned
like rats in a trap beneath the
deck. Within ten minutes the
boats were awav from the ship's
side just as she settled low in the
water with waves daBhing over her,
and flooding every available foothold. Cold and high seas completed the work of destruction, and
the little band of persons who got
away from the Larchmont, gradually separated, and in the helpless
drift and in the bitter cold it
became the old story of the survival of the fittest.

Plenty of Food and Wood,
But No Matches to Light a
Fire—Girl's Lonely End.
Giunii Forks, N. 1)., Feb. 14.—
The lack ol a match was the
cause of the death ol a young lady
who was spending the winter on
l.er claim near Minot, N. 1). It
appears that a party of hunters
came upon a lonely cabin. There
were no signs of life around, but
when they tried the door it yielded
to their pressure and they entered.
They were horrified to find the
dead body of a young woman
huddled near the stove. They wero
nt a loss to discover the reason for
her deatli nt first as there was
plenty of fuel, provisions of every
kind in abundance, and the wood
waB placed in tho stove all ready
for the touch ol fire. An investigation revealed the fact that there
was not a single match in the
building. The girl's home was at
Grafton and she had been alone all
winter against the wishes of her
family, who wero afraid ol the
calamity that overtook her.

SATURDAY, FEB. 16, 1907
The weather prophets ol the province and also ot the Dominion us n
whole, ourselves being included, have,
during the recent protracted spell ol
cold weather, been ibe innocent objects cl considerable and severe an-
allien atizing and perhaps the general
outcry has not been without cause,
lor we certainly were unable tc predict anything contrary to what we
conscientiously felt should take place.
But now that the winter is drawing tu
a close it is time that more genial
weather should visit us, and it seems
now as i! the end ul the long period o
cold and stormy conditions is at hand.
Many forecasts have predicted another
brief but sharp spell of below zero
weather and it is just a question of
l:.cal conditions as to whether we shall
Now that the winter is on the wane
un.l the spring will soon be here and
with it the accompanying waking up
of the human world, and now that the
smoke and dust ot tbe recent po'iticnl
campaign nre clearing away, it seems
ncce-siiry to address ourselves seriously to the general conditions we find
existing in our province and in our
city with an object in view, il possible,
to correcting delects and improving
upon tbe methods presently obtaining,
It may be taken us a text ihnt the
natural resources of any country or
district are tho basis nnd foundation
for conunorcial manufacturing and
financial success and added to tluse
may be classed lhe moral and social
obligations which .ne essential in the
well being ul it community such us wc
aie. We have no hesitation in affirming that it is impossible lor any nne
t. dispute tl.e lact that nature has
given to British Culumbia and our
district in particular, blessings fur
greater iban uro possessed by any
iniilur area in the North American
continent, advantages' bo great that
by their proper uso men and women
cun hero attain higher development
that has been conceived by tbo most
liopclul in .lis brightest dreams. W
know, and it is our duty to publish
it abroad, what advantages Revelstoke
possesses ol an almost unlimited
extent. No city is better situated fur
the commerce of the west, and if we
look well to it wo can make her so,
but by co-operation and social harmony, It behoves each and every
one of us now resident in Revelstoke
to work together to make the besl
possible use of these advantages by
such oneness of purpose, such unity
of action, such control, if not elimin
atinn ol petty und personal ambition
as must come before such attainment
can be reaohed.
The j-enr 1006 was the greatest in
bunking records in the history of
Canada, This simple fact will ocoas-
iou no surprise because the country
is rapidly growing, but not many
get cur shure of it in Revelstoke or: people will be prepared ior the actual
not. It is a good many years Bince facts, For instance there was an in-

thoughts of holiday,ohange and travel
and many is the hard earned dollar
that melts away in lengthy train

Teachers who havo

Taken on the whole, Indeed, very likely f i schoolboys of tho Orient are
much more picturesque than tho boys of
Europe and America. But when It
comes to character, there are no sucn
boys in all the world aa the schoolboys
of OKI England.
A French schoolmaster, who spent
somo years as Instructor in an English

to illustrate what ho meant by character in his description of the English

taking a walk through the village I
stumbled across a group of our boys,
some of whom were smoking. Bui instead of trying to conceal their cigars
nnd pipes, thoy met mo frankly anil
honestly, and ln reply to my question,
one of them answered: 'Yes, sir, wove
been smoking, but I trust you did not
see us.'
"They didn't lie; they owned up
straightforwardly, you see, trusting
their fate to my generosity. And I
don't mind saying that, ln view of their

.Manliness—whicli includes honesty and
truth telling among Us characteristics—is, perhaps, tho attribute distinguishing English school-lads from other
schoolboys the world over.
Not merely In muscle, but In mind and
morals and manners, as well, the average English school-lad is manly.

It happens to be a Saturday. Tom and

quarter past 1, the bell tolls for dinner, and they all gather ln tho dlning-

It Is a great room about thirty feet
long and eighteen feet high, with two
great tables running the whole length,
and two largo fireplaces at tho sido with
blazing fires ln them.

a hearty dinner befure tho big man calls,

After dinner the boys of one house
don white trousers, although it Is winter time, for there Is to bo a football
match that afternoon between their
house and all the rest of the school,
Just at .1 o'clock the boys sweep into
the big school to answer to their names

Not long ago a little boy, 8 years
old, was saved from drowning by his
faithful spaniel.
The boy waa out bathing, and got
out of his depth, so the dog instantly
sprang into the water and swam to
liis little master.
Then the drowning boy clasped the
dog round the neck, and the sensible
little animal held him up until help
came: and both boy and dog wero
Another clever dog In I/mdon is
told about by Our Dumb Animals:
A littlo skye terrier in London, who
very often went to ride with his mistress ln cabs, decided one day to take
a stroll all hv himself.
He went quite a long distance from
his well-known streets and soon found
that he had lost his way.
After running up one street and
down another for some time, and then
stopping still and trying to remember
which way ho had come, he suddenly
had a very bright idea. There were
some cabs. Why should he not ride
home, as he always did with his mistress?
No sooner thought than dono. He
jumped up into a hansom cab, and
win in the cabman got down off his
seat and came around to look at him
he saw that he had on a silver collar.
On that collar was his name and address. The cabman drove to that number and found the mistress, who had
been anxiously hunting for hlm.
Imagine her surprise when she saw
her little doggie riding home alone in
a cab. Wasn't he smart? If a dog
oan have presence of mind, this little
skye   had   it-
It Is delightful to observe friendship between animals. Often these
friendships  arise   from   gratitude.
One  day,  In  the  country,  a  goose
was nearly terrified out of her life
by meeting a fox, but just as tbe
fox was going to mako a spring a
collie dog came bounding up. The
collie soon drove Mr. Fox away, and
the goose was so grateful ever afterward that ^\\a nover left her kind
friend. She rwould waddle along beside him whenever he went for a
walk, take her food beside him, and
once, when he was ill, sho nearly
made herself ill, too, because sho
wouldn't touch her food.
Whenever any one passed the kennel where the dog was lying sho
would fly out, flapping hor wings
and screeching till they passed on,
becauso she thought they were going to hurt her sick friend.
And when the dog got better the
goose was simply delighted and
quite  happy again.
Sometimes people would risk their
lives to save a fellow-human being,
but not to save an animal. But bore
is a story about ono who would do
even  that much.
The other day a gentb-man who
loves dogs risked his own life to save
a poor collie that had been cruelly
This poor dog had been thrown
down a coal pit that bad not been
used for years, and tho wonder was
that he wasn't killed, for tho pit
was very deep and was partly filled
with water.
But when this gentleman, who
lived near, heard of what had been
done, he got some mon to help him
to put beams of wood across tho
mouth of thc pit, then fastened a

By means of sealing wax, fasten
the four shells to the spool, at equal
distances apart, the hollow side up.
Make an axle on which the spool
will turn freely, and drive a pin
through It on each side of the spool
to keep the latter from sliding to
one side or the other.
Mount the axle on a light but firm
framework made of strips of wood,
and nbout this framework set up a

steel armor, even his face being hidden
by a visor, with peepholes Tor him to

a shield, and his right hand would hold
his long stout lance.
Another trumpet would sound, and a
second knight, dressed In the sumo way,
would enter at the othcr end.
A third timo n trumpet would ring
forth, and tho knights would drive tholr
spurs Into Iheir horses' sides, and tho

WELL, the designers have stopped lighting for their separate Ideas and each one
thinks his or her way has been gained.
Every one has at last united on a
common name tor the style of dress
that will prevail this Winter. It Is
called the Restoration. This will suit
every designer.
Paquln has fought for the Empire;
Beer   has   stood   out   for Dircctolro;
Worth has kept to bis wonderful princess models Introducing tl.e long English Court tram again; Callot Sisters—
those  clever,    artistic    women,   have
modified all the other designs and sailed to victory with Individual, exquisite
frocks, their only defect being, sometimes, a tendency to over elaboration.
But the judge, the law and Jury-
that is, tbo people-decided not to have
iny one style too pronounced aud ao
he masters cujne down off thoir high
.«r$cs and adapted all these styles Into
a harmonious  whole.   It Is  this we
eall the Restoration. It haa the Empire,
the Dlrectolre, the Princess moulded,
modified and rolled Into one in such a
manner that every    one   can   get a
chance to be satisfied.
We are certainly seeing a complete
revolution from all the styles that have
led us for the last few years. Only
tboso who builded well last year will
have a chance of looking really stylish
this Winter without buying new
It Is fortunately true that the majority can buy a few new things each
year, so they have a chance of being
In style in some of their frocks anl
wraps, if not in all.
Too much altering Is worse than being convicted of wearing last years'
things. It nearly always takes more
time and money than a simpler new
frock of perhaps less expensive material.
The great mistake of many women
ts that they often spend their all on
fine materials in one season and economize on the dressmaker; then when
the next season rolls around, they feel
that they must utilize these fabrics
that cost them so much money.
All things being equal, they would
probably be able to wear those clothes
for twu seasons. The women who understand the value of paying the best
price for the making of a frock In pro-
portlon to the cost uf material are wise
in their generation.
A really tine dressmaker knows Just
how to keep a frock from being "dated." Hhe will put those touches on It
ihal stay In biyi-e for yean. Her secrei
In doing It is one ot the things lhat
make her worth her price. The woman
who Is to have her clothes made at
home or by incompetent dressmakers
should not pay so high a price for ma-
trlals that Will make a gown como
j more than the style or workmanship
ustifles, Not a word is meant in criticism of tho home work or tho small-
priced dressmakers, for the great majority of us have to depend on both,
but it Is the wisdom of suiting the cost
nf 1'iihrlc to that of the making that
should bc borne In on every woman who
Is nbout to launch new clothes,
No season Is harder than this oue
for choosing .styles has been our Tale for
a long while, Not because of a paucity
ef fashion to choose from, but because
of the overwhelming variety of new
Ideas and fabrics and novelty touches
that confront us. Such prodigality one
has seldom seen. How the great designers ever expect to have another Idea
for years to come is the marvel.
Tho Imagination ami cleverness for
all the artists of Europe seem to have
been expended on this season. The great
shops In the Impurtant cities are bewildering. At the famous dressmakers
so many different and wonderful fash-
Ions are given one to see 'hat the
brain Is In danger of menial Indigestion.
And such colors! Such barbaric em-
broideries and bullion weaving and
spangles! All that yuu have ever seen
of spangled robes in former years are
nothing to the ones that will be worn
this Winter.
They are not only to be used for evening frocks that arc decollete but for
hlgh-nock theater, dinner and visiting gowns. And by the latter is meant
the elaborate frock one wears on special occasions when a carriage is used.
There is nothing left to the rainbow in
tho way of colors. In truth, the rainbow ls left in thc rear as a pastel shadow. Wliere the spangled robe of other
days was merely rilled in with a handsome design the new ones are complete
sots of armor. They are not done In
loose scales that swing ns one walks,
but lu overlapping design that I" ■!, like
tlie old coats nf mini that one sees ::■*.
tbo Tower nf London.
Gold ones are plentiful, but the very
fashionable ones are of indigo blue and
,*ray. The latter ones are very lovely.
.And It is these that are worn for the
must elaourate house truck**--.. Tue net
on which they are sewed is extra strung
and wiil hold a heavy weight, lt is the
kind called lulle over In Paris—the new
weave-of which they are making bo
many smart afternoon frocks with Indian embroidery.
Perishable as It looks it really lasts
two scas-ms. Now lhat the best clean-
era have learned a way tu freshen ihese
frocks without ripping them apart they
can be worn as lung as a cloth gown.
The blue and gold ones are made
over white linings and satin or mossa-
line is used Instead of taffeta. Thu gray
ones are usually built over pink.
It is Just these frocks, however, that
are not needed by any but tbe women
who go into society. But every woman
who has a spark of curiosity in her nature wants to know what the leading
fashions are, even If she never buys
Among the Ideas tbe majority can
nuupt though are the new bib bodices;
the use of Indian embroidery on everything even the collars and cuffs of
street suits; the fashion for a thread of
silver or gold ihroad metai, of course,
which is run in and oul of lace and em*
over vi Ivet when sued as
trlmmlni th i waistcoats of plaid vel-
vetinei * one i olor which make a
* ■ .- .-'.'.t take on a new b-ase of ||fo
fashion for guimpes like those worn by
children. How these do give a woman a
chance tu cut out an old yuko and
sleeves uud freshen up the waist lo look
like new?And she cannot fail to be glad
that as the season advances aud settles
ihe styles, that the pleated skirt is tho
lust fashion except for the line house
(rocks of extra thin materials.
Pleats in every width and kind and
style are to be used. Tlicy aro lo be
stitched and unstitched as the maker
chouses. Thoy an* tn be mixed together
In one sliirt. And When tbey are ibilsh-
ed ine .inly other trimming Is a border
al the lout of Um skirt, ellhor uf tho
material ur of something else, usually
Then again this style of bordering
everything Is now and very pouplar,
Bodices, skirls, coals, wraps, yokes, all
are lo be finished off with a border of
quite another culur Irom the frock. Tins
will give ehuracler lo negative fabrics.
One is surely Interested In tbo new
cc-ats of white corduroy which are to bo
worn as the latest thing for evening
and driving. The belter ones nro lined
with cheap white fur, Thoy are very
pretty and not at all expensive. Tlie
build of Ihem Is strongly Dlrectolre
with double-breasted fronts, large whito
pearl buttons, high .standing collars
and back slashed at Iho waist line, then
laid In plaits just Uko a man's frock
It seems that the new bib bodice Is
'»'■■   imnortant   thing   in the Winter
of many gowns as well as serve ror
tho building of new ones.
Hume designers call il the shield
front. Olkers the claburato brctellii
front. Hut It really looks like an apron
bib moro than, anything else and can
bo more easily understood by that
numc than any other by the woman
who  has uut seen  one,
Tne fundamental features are the
straight front without plaits, the two
ur one straps over Uie shoulders, Ue;
npi.li   spin*.■   iliiiin*   ili"   aim.**  and   lhe
low expanso, showinii lho undor bodn o,
at the bark and front, It really takes
two waists to make one and this Is
considered an extra expense by some.
On the ulher hand, a i;real many women have Dm' lingerie blouses thai they
will not wear during llie Winter and
Others have uilu..i and cuds ul laee ur
embroidery that they can use Without
going io much expense, As I said boforo. It is alsu an admirable way tn

Ore is Found in Semi-Crystalline Forms Disseminated
Through Vein of Pegmatite.
Ottawa, Feb. 14—Tinstone lms at
last been discovered in n Bi.lid vein in
Canada, Saimilcs wore received nt the
end ol lust month hy the geological
survey from Mr. Harry Pier.-, curator
ol thc provincial museum st Halifax,
and they proved on lieing aieayed t(
be casuiterito. the most, valuable ol lin
ores, containing 78 per cent ol tin and
22 per cent oxygen. The discovery
wns made by Mr, Join. Keddy at Imkc
Ramsay on John Keeve's farm, three
miles west ol New lloss, Lunenburg
county, N, 8. The ore is lound in
scmi-crystallino forms disseminated
through a vein of decomposed kaolin-
i/.cd pegmatite in granto.
As early as 18118 lin ore is reported
by Prof. How to have been lound in
Nova Scotia in granite at Tangier and
Slielburnc, and latterly it has also
been found in granite drift at Tangier
and County H.irbur, and in the tailings at Malaga gold district.
ln 1D03 Mr. K. R, Faribault ol  the
geological turvey, examined geologically the New Ross  region,  and   re-
parted   the   occurrence of ores of
molybdenite, zinc,  iron,  manganese.
Copper,  lead and silver and other less
important minerals,  and  he  recom
mended the locality  as* a  promising
hold for prospecting.    In  the summary  report for 11)06 a reference is
again made to the ore bearing character of the granites of that region and
to the rumor of tin ore  having  been
lound at Luke  Ramsay.    Specimens
brought then from that locality were
examined for tin, but they only proved
to bc zinc blende,  a  mineral  which
much resembles casnileric.    Still the
fact is established that the granites of
Novr, Scotia contain valuable  minerals, and chief amongst  theni  is  tinstone.   More exploratory work should
be done in that region by panning Ior
tinstone along the streams and developing the numerous pegmatic veins
which cut the granite,   In the reports
of the geological survey, Iiu ore is reported to have been found in drift at
several places  in  Canada.    It  was
lound in New Brunswick on the Pok-
iok River, York county! iu Quebec on
the sixth lot of tbe eleventh range ol
Whitton' compton county, and in the
gneiss of Buckingham, Labelle county;
in Ontario in  minute  quantity at
Sudbury, and the Vermillion mine, in
the county ol Denison, district ol
Algoma; in  British  Columbia in a
three-leet vein  of   pegmatic cutting
granite near Osoyoos  lake, also in
Cariboo and Boundary Creek districts;
and in the Yukon in several tributaries of the Klondike river, hut so far,
most frequently iu Bonanza.  Hunker
and Sulphur creeks, where it occurs as
stream tin in snu oth rounded pebbles
up to two inches iu  diameter,  whicli
remain with the gold  in  the  sluice
boxes, on aocount  of  their weight.
The dnoovery of   tinstone  in  the
Laurentian rocks ol Greenland con
stitutes u claim to  attention  in  the

where commercially valuable deposits
may be expected.

Earl Grey's Company Buys
Large Ranches in Okanagan
Vrr.wn", Feb. 15.—The company ol
which Earl Orey is the principal
shareholder, the Learmouth Fruit Co.,

garth ranches at White Valley. They
consist ol some thousands ol acres,
nearly all under irrigation, and they
embrace ounit) ol the host Iruit growing laud in the valley. The company
will carry on the business of fruit culture, contracts being already let for
planting out a considerable aoreage in
Iruit th's coming spring. The Cold-
stroani Ranch lus proved of inestimable value ta tl.e district as a means
of demonstrating its Iruit growing

Success of Exhibits in New
Zealand—Canadian Mineral
Display the Best There.
Ottawa, Feb 13—Further advices
Iron, the Canadian commercial agent
in Australia, Mr. Lake, give added Information concerning the success of
Canada's big exhibit at the New Zealand International exhibition, now in
progress at Christchurcli.
The high standard and quality of
tlie goods are favorably commented
upon. Tbe attractiveness of the court,
an well ns the high class of the exhibits, will do much to improve our
trade with New Zealand. The sympathy and sentiment ol New Zealand-
ers is all towards Canada and the
Motherland, to the exclusion ol all
other countries. The proximity ol
Canada to Now Zealand as compand
to Omit Britain is also a strong point
in favor of Canadian goods and tlie
direct steamship service between Canada nnd New Zealand ia proving to le
a means of diverting a large l.i.sin.-.-s
to Canadian factories.
New Zealand is a snlo market lor
our manufacturers to exploit. The
numerous wholesale houses are large
in buying capacity, nnd their business
integrity and financial strength will
c impure with that ol any other part
ol the world. New Zealand is not a
consignment market, the wholesalers
placing direct orders, paying Ior same
against the usual bank documents.
Apart Iron, the exhibit of manufactured articles the Canadian government has installed several exhibits
illustrating the natural resources of
Canada, such as minerals, agriculture,
Iruit, maple syrup and honey, Theie
exhibits aro very much admired. The
apple exhibit consists of thirty-teven
varieties the quality of which is very
much admired. There is no doubt
that there is a good market in New
Zealand for our British Columbia
apples. With a direct steamship connection fruit can be landed in New
Zealand during the early Bprkg
months, Callfornian apples were
bringing 8J. per lb. in October and
Tl.e Canadian mineral exhibit is
the largest and most comprehensive
collection of economic mineials at the
exhibition, and is proving to bo ono ol
its most educatiuiial fe.tures, the arrangement being altogether different
from any of the others.
Where possible (he metallurgical
and other products are shown, illustrating the ore as it ernes Irom the
mine, the different stages ol smelting
nnd refining and the manufactured
The visitors arc more particularly
impressed with our exhibits of asbestos, mica, corundum and nickel, these
being to a certain extent new miner-
ale to them.
Tho Cobilt nickel-silver ores from
Ontario also attract much attention,
especially the slab of native silver from
the Trothewey mine.
The mineral exhibit occupies a
apace of 4391 feet and Consists of 36
pyramids and stands and I'.l table

The Guild bus provided the hospital

The Guild found it very inconvenient being obliged to rent dishes nnd
cutlery for their various entertainments, so it wns unanimously decided
to purchase dishes nnd cutlery which
were to be kept for this purpose.
The Guild has decided to devote all
their energies towards building a
verandah around the hospital and
would have done so but the board of
directors did not think it advisable as
they contemplated enlarging the
hnspit.il in the near future, which
would have necessitated the tearing
down of the vera..dull.
