MICIPAL POT IS
Special Meeting of Council
Called for Today.
THE   BANK... QUESTION
The Transfer Will Gome up in the Fo:
of   Consideration    of   the
Mayor's Veto
That tempest in a tea pot raised by
the resolution of the City Council to
change the City's bank account from
the Bank ot Montreal to the Merchants Bank of Halifax has assumed
such proportions that it bids fair to
blow the lid off and emit some unsavory odors. It* was a lively topic of
conversation yesterday, the general
opinion of the busiuess community
seeming to be that the stand taken by
Aid. Beer, Kirkpatrick and MoKillop,
who voted for the chauge on the
ground that the offer of the Bank of
Halifax was the most advantageous
oue, was the ouly business-like course
to adopt. In standing Dy their guns it
appears that the three aldermen will
have the support of the citizens.
There were all sorts of stories going
the rounds concerning matters and it
waB whispered in every direction that
there were wheels within wheels
Color was given to these insinuations
by tho announcement ut 8 o'clock last
evening that a special meeting of the
Council had been oalled for this afternoon. In order to aseevtaiu the rea
son for the special meeting The Miuer
secured a copy of the uoticos sent to
the Aldermeu, whioh road as   follows:
Dear Sir :���I have to request your
attendance at a meeting of the City
Council which will be held tomorrow
(Friday) the 14th instant at 4:30
o'clock p. m., to reconsider lesolutiuu
of Couucil of the 10th instant accept
ing offer of the Merchants' Bauk ou
Halifax tor the City's Bank Account
which resolution has been vetoed by
the Mayor: and for tho transaction of
other business. Yours truly, J. K.
Straohan, City Clerk
A new and interesting phase is put
OU the question by the culling of
this meeting. Those opposed to
changing the account stated that their
reason for so doing was on aoooount
of the benefit to the City being audi
nn insignificant sum it was uot worth
miming the risk of damaging the
City's credit liy making the ohange,
But siuce the Council decided on
the change tho mutter suddenly be-
comes of sucli iinportauoe that the
vetoing power of the Mayor is employed and a special meeting to consider
tlie veto is hastily culled. In endeavoring to get at tlie feeling of business
men on the question The Miner interviewed several niercliiints and others
yesterday, selecting those who, as fur
as was known, had no personal interest in the question, and all seemed
agreed thut the only danger in which
tlie credit of the city stood was in
the action of those opposed to the
change rejootiug the most ndvuutug
cuus offer and accepting one that would
mean a loss of money to the City. Had
they allowed tho question to lie settled
by the first, resolution on Monday it
would have attracted but little attention but the efforts to defeat tbe incus-
ure, to show lack of confidence in the
Finance Committee by rejecting u unanimous, report and to treat the finances of the City iu such an erratic
aud uubusiness ike manner, could not
but impress outsiders with tho idea
that thore wus more friendship than
common seufio directing the course ol
of Nelson's municipal affairs. Tlie
question of the City's oredit,therefore,
seems to huve become a boomerang,
Cue uiifortunute aspect of the calling
of the speoial meeting of the Council
today is tlie faot that the Muyor and
Aldermen who wanted it have laid
themselves open to the imputation
that advantage is being taken of the
absence from the Oity of Aid. Thomson to rush reconsideration through
before he oan have an opportunity of
voting on it. Aid. Beer had partieu
larly requested that uo meeting of the
Counoil bo held uutil Aid. Thomson
returned as it was desirable that all
the Aldermen should be present when
the question oame up. In view ot
this, however, the meeting has been
called. And the peculiar feature of it
is that there is no roason whatevor
for such haste being exercised; tlio
business of th" City is not being in-
tofered with ill any way und a speoial
meeting is entirely unnecessary. In
view of thoBO faotB it is generally
thought that there is no other view of
the matter than that the meeting is being hold iu ordor to remove all danger
of Aid. Thomson voting against tho
change. Whether rightly or wrongly
this brings discredit on the Oity aud
is considered most unrligniflod ou the
part of those who state that thev are
being uotuuted Bolely out of regard for
the City'B credit. The Oity might
well say, "0 save us from our
friondsl" The calling of the special
meeting under tho circumstances has
confirmed the suspicions of nuiuy that
a deal is on uud Aid. Beer, Kirkpatrick aud MoKillop are looked to to save
the Oity from tbe imputation that job
bery is being resorted to in the transaction of municipal business. Aid.
Thomson refrained from voting ou the
resolution on Monday night on ao;
oount of not having looked thoroughly
into the matter. Those interested in
seeing the account left where it is have
evidently -iveu him the credit of
since seeing the businesslike side of
making the transfer and are therefore anxious that it* should be settled
beforo he has an opportunity of voting in favor of it.
It is still probable that on acoouut
of the suspicions aroused bv the hasty
calling of the special meeting
it will not be held and that the matter will be left to come to a straight
forward vote before the whole couucil.
But if the meetiug is held thiB afternoon it will bo a lively one as the
members nf the Finance Committee
will go prepared lo niak ��� a fight for
what they consider they were eleoted
for���to conduct the City's business
with the same common sense aB thev
would their own.
RUSSIAN TYRANNY IN FINLAND
Fiulanders Are Leaving   Their   Country iu Shoals to Avoid the Ukase.
Hull, England, April la. ��� There is a
great rush of young Fiulanders for the
United States to avoid a recent de-
crous of Emperor Nioholas regarding
Finland whioh provides for an increase of the Russian military and
naval forces and the extension of the
conscription. The steamer Arcurus
landed 315 men hero today from Han-
go ; 203 arrived a tew days ago and all
report that many more are coming as
soon as possible. All the attempts of
the Fiulanders to check the reoent
Russian aggressions in Finland have
proved futile.
General Bobriokoff, the new governor general, has compelled the Finnish
Senate to send orders to all ministers
throughout Finland forbidding them
even to criticise the imperial ukase.
He has himself supplemented the
edict which makes tho Russian language obligatory in the University of
Helsigferse and in the schools of the
proviuoos with an order introducing
Russian coinuge and directing that all
old Fiunish coins shall be returned to
the mint and removed from circulation. The Swedish professors at the
university have been replaced by Rus-
siuns. The Czar's secret service agents,
who are very active throughout the
country, have been promising the
farm hands thut as soon us the Finnish
law bus been replaoed by the Russian
system they shall have all the
land they want This, the Finnish newspapers say, means thoft and
spoliation of the peasant landed proprietors, who own most of the arable
land. Any such measure,if carried out
would result in the ruin of all agricultural euterprise iu Finland. Throughout Scandinavia, which is warmly sympathetic with Finland, this nttitude of
Unssia has provoked a feeling of iu-
'ense indignation aud tho Swedish
press calls on the government to ah-
it-am from taking part in the disarm-
uncut conference, which meets next
mouth at The Hague, u congress
iv hi oh thoy  Stigmatize as hypocritical
ii the race of tlie decree which con-
templates an increase in the army, and
'ould attain it by destroying all hope
if perpetuating the Finnish national-
,ty, which tho czars ore uuder the
mist solemn pledge to maintain.
MUCH   RED  TAPE.
Washington, April 111.��� When the
Uuited Stutes Government recently
proposed a modus vivendi on the Alas-
Kan Boundary question to overcome
the possibility of a lawliii outbreak
[landing u final adjustment, tho British authorises offered the proposition
tn the Canadian officials at Ottawa.
Tho Ottawa Government has responded
with an acceptance of the general idea
o( a modus vivendi although some
changes in the original proposals are
suggested. This must now .go to the
Hritifh Foreign Office, aftor which,
il' approved in London, the response
will be officially submitted hero.

lious. Liggers covered u long pole

and exploded. Tho bullet went through
Ligger's lung indicting a wound from

GERMAN PKE8S RAVES.
Borlin, April 11!.���The afternoon

mouts on Great Britaiu. The semiofficial Post strongly urges the Reichstag to plaoe at the government's disposal forthwith the whole amount of

STAMP DUTIES RAISED TJ. S STEAMERS BARRED
Increased  Naval   Expenditure of Great AU Vesse]s on Eivers Mnst Be British
Britain faced upon Her by Important Discovery of Coal at
Actions of Others Sandy Oove.
London, April 13.���Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, Chancellor of the Exchequer, introduced his budget iu tlie
House of Commons tcday. As had been
anticipated, the heavy outlay ou the
Navy caused a deficit, and in explaining the extra taxation necessary to
bring about an equilibrium of the
budget, Sir Michael said, in part, as
follows -.
"This course is justified by the
facts. The taxpayers of tho future will
benefit by our expenditures and armaments. The strength of oar navy during the past years wus the main factor
in snving us from wnr. In the event
of our proposal beiug adopted we shall
still have .o meet a total expenditure
of 155-i, 6,15,000. On the basis of the
existing taxation we expect to get
$551,486,000, therefore there will be uo
necessity for a new departure iu tuxa
tion.
"There are grave objections to raising the tobacco duties. It would be
inwise for the sake of a small toiu-
oorary advantage to surrender the hope
of what may ultimately be a golden
Harvest. Wo propose two new stamp
liltiss, five shillings iu the ��100 on
'oreign and colonial bonds, stocks aud
shares, whioh are uow liable to duty.
L'he new tux will be payable on the
irst occasion the document is negoti-
ited in tbis country. The second
itamp duty will be an ordinary niort-
;age duty of two shillings per ��100 on
oan, oapital and debeuture stock eroded by corporations or companies un-
ler the statutes. The comnanies'capi-
al duty will be increased to five siblings per ��100 and the same duty on
letters of allotment will oe increased
roni one penny to six pennies. It is
stinialod the total increase from this
durce will be *2,a00,000."
The Chnnoellor of the Exoheqnei
ilso proposed fresh indirect taxation,
uying that there was nothing in
lie condition of the wine trade or the
reaties with foreigu countries to present the imposition of reasonable duties
le proposed therefore to inoreasi
he duty on wine not exceeding 81
n-oof to Is. (id., uud hetweeii ill and 11
u-oof to Hs.,and also a surtax ou sparking wines of 3s. (i., per gallon. It is
ilso proposed fo imprse u new duty on
till wine imported in bottles to tin
���mount of 5s per gallon.
In conclusion hi* said���
"Now therefore we are able to o.cti-
liute a revenue of $655,785,000 to meet
.ii expenditure of #554,(135,000 leaving
i surplus of 11,160,000,
"A lurge expenditure is not duo ti*
n a'-tgressivo policy upon our part,
mt hiiB been forced upon us by the in
���reused and increasing armaments of
ithers and the consideration of the un-
que positiou of our national prosperity
md security. Our proposals have ree-
ignizid the exceptional circumstances
ve hnve hud to deal with, and wc
lave dealt with them not ouly with-
int adding to the debt hut by making its reduction surer than at present. The taxation proposed has nol
.jointed the great fiscal principles from
ivhioh we have received such un
(bounding revenue and will not seri-
aisly interfere with the trade or com-
norco of the country, or appreciably
add to the burdens of the people.
London, April Kl.���Sir William
Vernon Hnroom't, Liberal member for
vVost Montujouthshire who followed
the Chuncelloi- of the Exchequer
strongly depreciated u suspension of
the sinking fund. Sir Charles Ed-
wurd Howard Vincent, Conservative
and iudustrial member for Oontral
Sheffield, suggested that, a tux on foreign luuuufuntureB would bave enabled
tho Chancellor of tlie exchequer to
ieduce the income tux. Sir Charles
Wentworth Dilko, Radical member
for the Forest of Dean division of
Gloucestershire, expressed n fear thai j
taking foreign wines would encourage
foreign countries in protective retaliation, The Chancellor of the Exchequer, replying to thoso gentlemen's
criticisms, suid hn did not share Sir
('buries Dilke's apprehensions because
the wine growing countries wanted
the tUtV matoriuls they imported from
England. As for the observations of
Sir William Vernon Haroourt thev
seemed to him to suvor of an insinuation thnt ho (Sir Michael Hicks
lieach) had not proposed taxation
which would have made the government unpopular. The insolations
affirming the wine und stamp duties
woro then  adopted without   division.
Victoria, April 13. ��� At  the   suggestion of ' Collector   Milne   the  Depart
ment of the Iuterior have arranged for
the issunnce of mining liceuses for
the uew territories at Atlin City. Mr.
Mouzies, customs officer at Atlin. has
been instructed to issne such licenses.
Tbe collector has also arranged the
difficulties on the White Pass trail
between the Northwest Mounted Police
and the United States people and
freight will go through henoefort'1
without obstruction. Arrangements
have also been mnde to allow no one
bnt British bottoms with British officers to curry freight on Cunudiun waters in the gold country.
The Governments will rigidly enforce the regulation to this effect, aud
to this end an officer will shortly be
sent up from here. No American vessels will he allowed to curry freight
*i- passengers between the river point3
in the Canadian Ynkou, Hnotalinqua,
���it ewart, and Pelly Rivers, Luke Tes-
iu or other lukos in Canadian terri-
nry. Besides the masters of all Oan-
diaii river steamers currying over 40
ia8sengers will be obliged to curry oer-
ified mates holding British papers
-*11 will also have to carry certified
iritish engineers.
Dr. R. W. Large tho Bella Bella
nodical missiouury who arrived this
nothing on the Qnenn City brings
vord of a gross infraction of the cos-
oius' regulation by au American
teanier. It seems that two stowaways
tamed J, Jones and J, P. Butler were
'onnd aboard the steamer Laurda ten
luyB ago, that vessel being at the
ime en routo from Seattle for Lynn

be captain of the Laurda put them
���shore nt Bella Bella and steamed

Milwaukee, April 13.���Tho Jefferson
llnb of Milwaukee observed tin nn-
i mill d y of the founder of democracy
���>y a banquet at the Plankton tonight
ittended by over 400 guosts. Col. W.
.1. Bryan of Nebraska was the guest o
honor and delivered tho principal
iddress. Col Brvun spoke on "Democracy."   Ho said in purt:
"We are now near enough to tlie
next cumpaign to be ahln to form some
idea of the lines along which the oon-
lest will he fought, and I am taking
uo risk when I say that those who in
I8!)(l gave their ullegiunce to tbe Chicago platform are as united today in
tne determination that no step taken
in 1811(1 Bhall bo retracted. That platform noplio(f*to the conditions then existing the prinoiple! which hud been
democratic from the beginning of the
Government. Suggestions that we
abandon the money question sometimes come from those who deserted
the party in 1898. but these suggestions are not supported hy evidence
tending to show thut the position In
IKIKi wns wrong, hut wus predicted upon the theory that the issue upon
which the party once lost can never
bo revived, and, what seems most
strange, this argument is advanced
by thoso who huve followed a different
course during the past.
"In IKK8. Mr. Cleveland was defeated nn the tariff issue und yet the
tnrifT wns made the main issue of 1 Hll'J
and Mr. Cleveland wns elected. In
1802 Mr Harrison was defeated largely
on account of the McKinley bill and
four years later the author of the hill
wns nominated upon a platform reaffirming the belief in protection ami
was successful. Thus it la soeu iu two
I instances recently that a losing issue
in oue campaign became a winning
issue iu the campaign following.
"The   trustB take now an increasing
share   of public   attention   because of
their rapid growth during the lust two
years.    The    milk   trust  reaches   the
* iufaut as he enters the world, the  ice
j trust oools   him  in summer,   t', *  coal
I trust  keep   him   warm   in   the  win-
j ter, while the coffin trust waits to   receive him when life's   fitful dream   is
| over.    The   peoplo  are   beginning   to
see what   the  principle of   monopoly
really   means, and   yet the  priuciple
of monopoly so plainly   illustrated   hy
the industrial trusts, doeB not differ nt
all   from   tho  priuciple  of  monopoly
which underlies both the gold standard
and the paper money trusts.
"The Democratic party is prepared
to face the future and meet uew issues
without abandoning the old. The
Republican has demanded that our
standing army be increased to 100,000
men. If citizens born iu the Uuited
States ure ignorant of the burdens of a
stuuding army, they can receive instructions from thoso horn in European countries. Many Eur ipeuns who
ure uow worthy citizens of this grent
republic left their European homes
because of the burdens imposed by tbe
enormous military establishments. A
great army may be a good thing for
the rnilroad companies which will
curry them from place to place, and
for the large contractors who will rur-
uish food and raiment for the soldiers,
hut it is a distressing burden upou
tho plain people of the country,ind especially upou the laboring men and
the farmers, upon whom un unfair
share of the loud has fallen.
"Upon the Buhject of Imperialism I
need only udd a word. The idea of
forcible conquest and colonization, after the plan adopted by European
countries cannot receive tbe support of
the people of this country when the
principles involved ure clearly understood The leaders of the Republican
party are attempting to repudiate the
doctrine of equal rights nnd of self
government giveu to us by their forefathers. Not ouly nre they imitating
the nio'-arohies of the old world in
heir policies, but they ure copying
���he lnuguuge of inonarehs in carrying
mt their policy : The policy of Im-
lerinlisin is at all times defended on
he ground thut it is for the good of
the people governed, but we have
never recognized the right of any nu-
ion to benevolently uBBimilute nnother
.ution."

the murder of George Saxton, Mrs
(President) McKinley's brother, ia
the streets of Canton a fnw months
ago, Judge Taylor this afternoon decided to admit Attorney Worutz's con-
venation with Mrs. George beforo the
trugdey. He ruled that Counsel could
not be employed iu relutiou to the
commission of crime and without such
professional employment there could
bo un professional confidence. Attorney Wernts*. said Mrs. George asked
him how it would be to have two revolvers, throw one at Saxton's feet aud
shoot him with the other. Also that
whon ho said that was uot a good plan
she asked how it would be to shoot
him in the hack and throw the gun
away.

for banks to tender openly for accounts, whether private or public.
and in the case of the City they were
���uot asked to do so nor did they do so.
They were simply required by a corporation official acting on proper authority, to state ou what terms they
would take over tbe Oity's business.
If they chose to regard this as tendering it was their own affair, nnd no one
else need conceru himself with it.
No doubt the Finance Committee of
the City Council had good and sufficient reason for causing the inquiry to
be made, aud if a suspicion that better
terms could be obtained was tbe only
one they were justified, as faithful
guardians of the public interest, iu
taking the step they did. It may seem
strange to some persons, aud from talk
heard here and there it doubtless is
strange, but it is nevertheless a fact
that members of the City Council are
elected to look after the interests of
the corporation and not after the interests of the Bank of Montreal. And
they are not only elected to do this,
but the ratepayers expect and demand that tbey shall do it. Patent aa this fact is supposed to be, it
would appear that there are members of
the Council who have yet to be informed ot it.
The Bunk of Montreal cun look after
itself; let the members of the City'
Council attend to their business.
Tbeir business is to look after the
business of the City, houestly iu any
case, and as capably us tbey can. A
part of that business is to obtain the
most favorable bunking rutes possible
juBt as they would do iu their own individual cases. They are uot going to
pay six per cent, ou overdrafts or
discounts if they can get off with five
and a half, nor wiU. they deposit their
own money at three per ceut. if tbey
can obtain four. And as they would
not do these things for themselves,
they ought not to do it for the corporation whose interests they were elected
to protect. The Miuer does not know,

simplo a business transaction as changing a bank account,something that oc-
cuis everywhere every day without
exciting as much as a remark in any
person uot predisposed to be hysterical.
We shall look in vain tor auother
iustanco of such excitement over the
action of a Finauoo Committee of a
City Couucil in doing their duty to
the ratepayers they were elected to
serve. The incident gives rise to a
suspicion that something ii concealed
behind that would hardly bear tho
light of day. Form is given to this
suspicion by the statemeut published
iu yeiterdny's Miuer, tbat the Merchant's Bank of Halifax was on a former occasion made the vietim of some
scheming or plotting in conuection
with corporation busiuess. It is desir-
able iu the publio interest that the
!a<*ts of the case should be exposed,and
beforo this insane flurry subsides it
may be that the citizens of NeUon
will be introduced to some of the
methods in which they have been bled
in tbe past. W�� Buspect they have
beeu numerous enough, and if the'
time and occasion bave arrived to
drag them into the light let it bo <
done. Nelson has got beyond its pioneer days, when it would seem to have
been thought proper by the Jobuuio-
Coiue-EarlieB to exploit it in their own
inicifsi. It is time that any further
exploitation should be done iu the in- ,
terest of tho City itself. And a move
in this direction is made wheu the
Finance Committee propose to rna'>e
thu best bargain they ran iu conuectiou
with the corporal ion's banking business, just ns they would be expeoted !
to do in conuectiou with corporation
business of any sort. That the Mayor's veto, hastily and inconsiderately
determined, we trust, although uo
doubt with the best of motives, shall
be sustaiued by the Council is beyond
comprehension.

Tho vicissitudes nnd dangers of a
prospeotor's life, even in the Koote-
uays, where the pioneer stage is pass
ing away and trails, roadB, aud railways are running through the country
in all directions, have again beeu
most sadly exemplified. Every lake
and river has its quota of victims, and
but rarely do either them, or the
mountain chasms, ever give up thoir
doad.
Tbe disaster which must be chroni-
clod here is the death of two New
Denver prospectors, both young men
under thirty. It appears that ou Sunday afternoon last, Frod Jeffreys and
John Tod left New Denver by the
steamer Slooan for Ten Mile oreek.
They intended to locate a claim near
the Enterprise, and had with them an
outfit, supplies, and a Peterborough
cauoe, in whioh, it is supposed, they
intended to ascend the creek. They
disembarked from the steamer without mishap and no one dreamed thoy
had met with any aooident until their
boat, two ooats and a hat were found
yesterday morning stranded on the
north side of Carpenter Creek. It is
supposed that the canoe capsized, and
that tbey, with their belonaiugs, are
now in the depths of the Lake. The
details of the disaster will never be
known, nor is it in the least probable
that their bodies will be   recovered.
Fred Jeffreys, was a young man about
25 years of age, a tiunor by trade.

has continued in popular favor probably longer than all others. Like all
spectacular plays the action is an
every-varyiug series ot pictures, in
which shupely girls dance or marcii
on tbe stage, sing, pose, speak an
irrelevant sentence or two, and melt
away again into tho wings, to give
place to something else. A number
of clever specialties are introduce! at
different times. There are choiinos
and solos, au Amazon march, in which
the costumes are stunning, and the
lights effectively bandied ; a bru-*s band
of giils in natty costumes, led by a
blonde drum major who explains their
use iu adding to the gayety of nat ons
in a song; there is a Queen of Mer
maids, aud an Evil Spirit, each with
her satellite and attendants ; there is

scone is on the earth, and who appears

to great advantage.
"Spring is Coming," was her second selection and as an encore, " Sleep

lullaby, was giveu, Miss Wilson, who
is indispensible in Nelson musical
oiroles, played helpful and sympathetic
accompaniments  for Mrs. Parry.
Mrs. Brougham appeared but once,
siugiug that sterling favorite, "Tbe
Kerry Dance," so extremely well thut
she had to respond to an enthusiastio
encore and gave "Jock o' Hazelrieen"
to satisfy her appreciative listeners.
Mr. Brougham played her accompaniments with that artistic appreciation
of the musio that marks all   his work.

The Physical   Culture   Young  Ladies
Give a Pleasiug Concert.
Tho presence of the names of Mrs
Brougham and Mrs. Melvillo Parry
on the programme for the physical
culture concort in aid of the Methodist
church given in the Opera House las I
evening was suffloient to ensure it being an enjoyable affair. The 20 young
ladies who formed the physioal culture class added greatly to the .pleasure by their graceful exeroises and excellent drilling. The audienco was a
large one, completely filling the house
and frequent encores testified to the
fact that tba programme gave general
sntisfuction.
The trouble from the noise of footsteps during the opening numbers was
still in evidenoe and, iu faot, will not
be removed until matting to deaden
the sounds is laid on the Stairs and in
the landings. As it is now the racket
of people climbing the stairs is a great
nuisance Another objeotiouuble fon-
ture that is showing no sign of abatement is the action of ushers In showing lato comers to their seats while a
number is being given. It must be
irritating to the artist and is certainly
an awful bore to those who go early
and hope to enjoy all tbe   programme.

London, April 13.���The Press Association in this city today announced
in unniistakeable terms the death of
Mr. John Sargent, the American artist, and all the afteruoou newspapers
here printed the announcement. Some
of them contuined lengthy and appreciative views ot Mr. Sargent's character. The statement naturally was
cabled to tlie Unitad States and Canada. Investigation, however, shows
the report to be untrue. Mr. Sargent
is alive aud enjoying  good health.

AND SOU LINK
Mr.   P. E.   Beelay, manager of  the
Alexander Del ley Milling and   Milling I . ...
Company,   was   .��   town   yesterday, \THE SLEEPING   (AR    ROUTE
The company's olainis nre   situated on EAST    OR     WEST.
the second north fork of Lemon Oreek.
ubout three miles above the Golden
Wedge mine, which belongs to tlie Or,
Mining and Milling Company. Tin
Alexander and Delley claims are being
most systematically developed, with
most encouraging results so far. The
work done consists of a shaft which
has been sunk ou the vein to a depth
of HO feet. A crosscut tunnel was then
driven which tapped the ledge after
running 86 feet, and a drift is now being run along tho vein which will
be continued until it is under th��
shaft. To roach this point 21(5 feet of
a drift, will have to be run, of which
:lti feet has beeu accomplished nlrendy.
This will give a depth of 380 feet.
If the rein holds its size and values at
that point, another crosscut tunnel.
800 feet long, will be driven giving
a depth of S00 feet. The reason why
such great depth can be so easily obtained is that not only is the hill very
pricipitous, but the vein dips towards
the workings.
The vein is five feet wide, and consists of a quartz carryiug free gold and
galena. It is high grade, a receu t
average assay giving returns of *J90 iu
all values. The outcroppings of the
vein can be traced along the suiface
tor a distance of 900 feet, aud so far
it retains its width with depth. The
management claim that it is a true fissure with well defined granite wills.
There, is four inches of mineinlized
talc ou the hanging wall and five on
the foot wall.
Native silver has ulso been frequently
met with iu the shaft.
There is au excellent wagon road up
Six Mile Creek from the lake as far as
the Golden Wedge, and the extia three
miles necessary to bring it up to the
Alexandria will not entail very groat
expense. At present but a small
fo ce is beiug employed, but as soon
as the suow goes off as many meu will
be put on as can be advantageously
used. The company is a strong oue
financially and has plenty of money
with which to push development. The
stock is uow quoted at 10 cents, a substantial advance on the price nsked
when the company was incopnr rated n
short time ago. which was two cents.
The stock is all held in Spokane and
Rosalia, Washington.
Movie. B. C., April 12.��� Tho ore
shipments from Moyie for March
amounted to 20 carloads, or 412 tous.
The gross value of this ore. at preseut price of silver and l��ad is $83,900,
and a net proffit to the mine OWE'1*8 pf
neatly $10,000. The St. Eugene
flipped 310 tons of the 412, and tl *
Lake Shore made np tbe balance oi
42 tons.
J Since tbe tn-t of Febru u-y, l>yy.
Moyie has shipped N22 tons of cue of a
total value of over -ftio.OiiO. As
there w *re 28 days in February and 31
days in March. "*!i days in all, it will
1���   seen    that    Movie's   ore   shipments
have been averaging considerably
over   $1,000 per day for  that   time.
There seems to be no longer any
doubt about the building of the St.
Eugene concentrator, flume and tramway, for preliminary operations have
already begun. The site for the concentrator is beiug cleared, the ties for
the tramway are being gotten out
and work has been commenced on the
flume. James Crouiu. the manager
and part owner of the mine, is now in
Spokane, and **i)l not be back in
Moyie for about two weeks. When he
returns work will begin in earnest.
A deal was put through in town
yesterday whereby a Nelson syndicate,
represented by Mr. Alexander Stewart, acquired the Ajax group art-joining the Tamarac mine near Ymir
The group consists of the Ajux the
Gold Kock fraction and the Lookout
fraction aud has very promising surface showings. The vendor was Mr
Richard Green but the price paid
has not transpired. A company will
probably be formed later on to operate
the properties.
The last shipment of Dundee concentrates to Northport of 20 tons were
valued at the port of Waneta at $S40
���30 ounces of gold and   400 ounces   of
silver.
