vide   Honors in   Athletic
Sports.
London, March 34.���The odds on
Cambridge are generally admitted to
bo extravagant, and it is probable that
but little money will be in-rested at
the present rate." The time tests however, snem to show that Cambridge
will be an easy winner. The swing
of the light blues, their back aud leg
work and their sliding are superior to
similar work done by the dark blues.
Thsy average two and a half pounds
lighter than the Oxford men, but the
general material seems to be slightly
superior.
Curiously enough, though Oxford
is daily losing in public favor the dark
blues ars improving in form, aud
those who are most intimate with
Gold's splendid power aud resources
and the strengthened Oxford crew,
still claim that if Gold, who is the
Oxford stroke, wius the choice of stations he will be able to take the  race.

Scene of the Lynchings.
Tsxarkana, Ark., March 24.���The

i nd many sensational reports are cur

WANTED   A COMMISSION.
Kitohie Considers That British   Commeroe is  Satisfactory.
London, Maroh 24.���Iu tho House of
Commons today, Sir Charles Howard
Vincent, OonserratiTe, asked whether
iu veiew of the euormous increase of
exports from the Uuited States, while
the exports of Uuited Kingdom do not
show such vitality, the Government
is prepared to issue a royal commission or appoint a select committee to
inquire into the cause of such a condition.
The President of the Board of Trade,
Mr. 0. T. Ritchie, replied that the
facts and figures set forth were substantially correct. The causes of such
a condition of things he added, were
generally well known, and there was
no necessity for a special inquiry
iuto the matter,especially as there was
no reason to regard the condition of
trade and industry in Great Britain as
other than satisfactory.

Plains of Abraham.
Toronto, Ont., March 24.-The following is a telegram cabled dated London, March 24.���The Morning Standard comments editorially today on the

graves of the gallant combatants of
Eugland and France, aud preserve the
historic site of Wolfe and great victory

ITS DEAD.
There are Now Thirteen Totally Unrecognizable Bodies in the
Morgue*
New York, Maroh 24.���The offloial
descriptions of the three bodies taken

found near body, no possible means of
identifying sex or finding out age.

hodies were recovered from the ruins
of the Windsor Hotel today. The record as if now stands is 28 dead, 40 or
more missing aud a largo collection of
small bones. The injured in
hospitals aud other places are recovering. Anxiety on the part of friends of
persons who have been reported missing has increased to certainty almost
that they perished in the fire. From
the condition of the bodies so far recovered there is but little hope that
they or any of the bodies that may be
found hereafter '���an bo identified.
Body No. 18 was taken to the
Morgue early this evening and placed
in n caso by iteslf. It is simply a
chili-red and blackened trunk with
pints of the arms, legs, and skull attached. The work of removing the
debris is proceeding slowly, so slowly
that residents and merchants in the
district within tlie fire lines extending
a blook in either diiection from tho
scene of the fire are making coin-
plainis. Business is blocked in the
district. President Murphy, of the
health board, today wrote to the contractor, ordering him peremptorily to
basteu the work of removal.

H'GOY
VERDICT BY REFEREE
Thousands Came to Watch
the Fight-
FOUGHT THE 20 ROUNDS
Neither Mas Was Knocked Out-A Well
Contested Bout���Sullivan Did
Not Referee*
San Francisco, March 24 ���Elaborate
preparations had been mnde for the
handling of the crowd aud at 6 o'clock
the doors of the gallery section were
thrown open in order to allow those
holding general admission tickets to
get in out of the rain, and avoid the
rush and confusion when the more favored ticket holders should arrive.
Mindful of its experience at the Jeff-
ries-Sharkey fight, when the amphitheatre collapsed injuring many persons, the management used every
means to avert a recurrence of thia
trouble. Seats were built ou a substantial foundation under the direct
supervision of the fire department.
The betting publio was in suspense
regarding the referee until a very late
hour. John L. Sullivan, who had
boon decided ou by both men, proved
too elusive, despite many telegrams
sent to various points in attempts
to locate the ex-champion and bring
bun back to Snn Francisco. Sullivan
wus supposed to be in the southern
part of the state, and hope of bis arrival was not abandoned until late
in tbo afternoon, when the club took
the matter in its own hands, and
sought a person to act as judge of the
contest. Choynski suggested several
io ial fistic experts, all of whom were
unsatisfactory to McCoy, who insisted
upon an eastern man being chosen.
Jim Kennedy of Brooklyn, manager of
Frank Erne, and an associate of W.
A. Brady, in some of the latter's enterprises, was chosen. McCoy was satisfied with Kennedy, nnd Choynski
agreed to the choice rather than cause
any trouble or delay when the hour of
entering the ring should arrive. Beting continued lively this evening at 10
to 6 in McCoy's favor. The seconds
acting for each men were as follows:
McCoy���Homer Selby, Jack Stelzner
and Frank Purcell.
Choynski���Eddie Graney, Tom
Murphy and Charles Tilson.
Choynski weighed in at 167 pounds
and McCoy at 159, the weights at the
ringside were approximately 108 and
160 pounds. Both men appeared to be
in perfect condition, notwithstanding
the fact that they were unable to do
muoh outside work during the past
week owing to the rainy weather. At
8 o'clock the building began fllliug
rapidly and all were seated without
undue confusion. Seating arrangements were as near perfect as could be
imagined. Six thousand seats wert
placed, and besides all these being filled a thousand or more were standing
around the outer edge of the arena
After the preliminaries, which were
very tame, exhibition affairs, there followed a long wait. It developed thnt
the canse of tbe delay was due to McCoy's demand thut the winner's share
of the receipts be deposited in one corner of the ring. This was finally
agreed to, but there was delay iu
counting the money iu a box.
At. !) :52 p. m. Choynski made bis ap-
pearanee, followed into the ring by
his seconds. He was given a hearty
greeting by the big **rowd. He wore
trousers and a red sweater and took
the southeast comer of the ring. At
9:45 p. in. McCoy climbed through
the ropes, shook hands with Choynski
and spoke a few words of greeting.
Ho wore trousers and a blaok sweater
and took the opposite corner. Choynski carried a box of rosin aoross to
MeOov aud sprinkled some on tho floor
for his adversary. MoOoy lias introduced by Billy Jordan, as the coming
champion of the world, which declaration was greoted with wild applause.
Jim Konnedy was then introduced as
the referee. Both fighters were baud
aged about thoir hands. When McCoy stripped he wore short white
trunks, loose like those of a sprinter.
He appeared pretty finely drawn
Choynski stripped to a very short loin
cloth. He showed up well. His massive shoulders quite overshadowod
those of McCoy's.
At. 10 p. m. the refereo called the
mon to tho centre and gave instructions. They agreed to break awuy
clean.
FIGHT BY ROUNDS.
Round 1.���After lively sparring in
the middle of the ring, MoOoy led
with Ilia left for the body, but missed.
Choynski wub on the aggressive, but
did not load until McCoy landed a
light left on Mb nock. McCoy swung
left for head aud Joe ducked. Joe
landed lightly on top of McCoy's head.
McCoy jabbed loft to body and followed with swing for head, but Choynski
got under it.
Round 2.���Joe tried a straight left,
but missed, MoOoy swung a left for
the head, but wns blocked. After
more sparring McCoy jabbed Joe in
the wind with his left, Joe missed a

cnntiously doing little footwork.
Round 3.���McCoy jabbed left on
face aud got away from a return. Joe
blocked a left for   the   head,   but  got

just at tbe end of the round.

manuer. McCoy rushed and Joo sent

but a clinch followed without an effort
to do damage, the round und fight

GERMAN     PRESS    IS   HOSTILE.
Consider   rsnlish   ActionB   in   Samoa
Uufrieudly.
Berlin, March 24���The newspapers
hero aggressively discuss the Samoan
question, and a portion of the press
maintains that Germany must adequately protect German interests
there. The semi-olli'-ial Post, referring
lo Germany's proposal to recall all the
tripartite representatives in Samoa,
snys: "This iB tho wisest thing all
round, as then new arrnngements
would be much easier for all concerned, and it does uot involve the humiliation of anybody. " The Berlin An-
zeiger, the Berlin Courier, and the
Cologne Gazette express amazement
that neither America nor Great Britain is willing to show good will toward Germany in the matter. It
seems just possible that the leading
men iu the Uuited States are not
wholly removed from the semi-savage
standpoint, In that case it becomes necessary to use plainer and more vigorous language upon Gcrmauy's part.
The actions of the British Government in the Samoan matter are singularly at variance with recent and often
repeated assurances of friendship.
The removal of the British cousul at
Apia, whose intrigues have occasioned
the whole turmoii, is especially nt-
eessary before neace enn be re-established in Samoa. The correspondent
here of the Associated Press learns
lrom an authoritative source that Germany does uot intend ro remove Herr
Roso, tbo German consul at Apia, unless Great Britain and the United
Stales also remove their consuls.

INDIANS UP NORTH.
Some     Tribes    ure     Averse    to
Intrusion of the Whitos.
Winnipeg, Maroh 24.���Rev. Father
llusson of Peace River is a guest at
St. Bonifnoe College. The Reverend
Father has boon in tin far north for a
quarter of a century. Thero are few
whito men m that part of the country
iu comparison with tbe Indians and
halt breeds, but their number was considerably Increased last year by the
Klondike rush. As' a rule the half
breeds and Indians huve log shanties
to live in, and make their living by
trapping and fishing.
The climate of the country is much
the same iib that of this district, but
not quite so severe in winter. Horses
I'eed out all winter, but cattle have to
l*e sheltered. There is abundance of
wood and water, and tho lend is
ndapted to wheat growing. Regarding tlie move to make a trenty with
the Indiuua of the Athabasca and
Pence Kiver districts, the reverend
gentleman thinks tho Commissioners
might meet With difficulty iu treating
with some tribes, us they are rather
adverse to the white man's iutrusions.

THE BOUNDARY QUESTION.
Tbe London Globe says tbat no man
born of worn m can define tbe boundary between Canada and Alaska as
laid down in the treaty with Russia
seventy odd years ago. It is supposed
tbat this is tbe ruck on which tbe
Joint High Commission came to gr!ef
a short time ago, compelling an adjournment for six months, in order,
as the Canadian Premier explains, to
afford the two Governments au oppor
tunity to tbiuk the matter over with
ull the seriousness it deserves. As the
Question is not unlikely to give much
trouble before it is settled, it will be
interesting to know exactly wherein
the difficulty lies. Article III of Ibe
treaty rends: "Commencing from
the southernmost point of tbe island
called the Prince of Wnles Island,
which point hei in the parallel of 54
deg. 40 miu. North Latitude, und between the 181 deg. aud 13!! deg. of
West Longitude * * * the suid line
shall ascend to the North along the
chanuel called the Portluud Channel,
ai fur as the point of the Continent
where it strikes the oti deg. of North
Latitude; from this last-meiiiioned
point the line of demarcation shall follow the summit of the mountains situated parallel to the Coast, as far as the
point of intersection of the 141 deg.
of West Longitude * * * and finally from the said point of intersection the said meridian lines of the
141 deg. in its prolongation as far as
the Frozen Ocean, shall form the limit
between tho Russian aud British
possessions of the Continent of America to the North West. "
This may hnve been clear to the
Commissioners of those days, with the
maps of Vancouver aud his contemporaries to guide them, although we
may without undue liberty take leave
to doubt it.
In the light of our increased geographical knowledge it is as nearly
meaningless as possible, and it is rendered worse by the article which follows it: "1st. That the Island called
Prince of Wales Islaud ahull belong
wholly to Russia. 2nd. Tbat wherever
the summit of the mountains which
extend in a direction parallel to the
Coast, from the Oti deg. of North Latitude to the point of intersection of
the 141 deg. of West Longitude, shall
prove to be at the distance of more
than ten marine leagues from the
ocean, the limit between the British
possession and the liuo of Coast which
is to belong to Russia, as above mentioned, shall be formed by a line parallel to tbe windings of the Coast, and
which shall never exceed the difference of teu marine leagues therefrom.'
There can be no boundary line as
described here, for the very good ron-
son that the entranoe to Portland
Channel is not to the north, but due
oast. Aud being n part of the continent, or entirely within it, a line following the channel could hardly be
said to strike u point of the continent.
There is a channel or indentation
called Clarence Straits, which, if substituted for Portland Channel, would
permit of a clearly defined bonndury.
The Canadian contention is that this is
the channel intended by the Commissioners, and that the other was named
in mistake or ignorance. If accepted
it would give us an important island,
together with a considerable strip of
Coast. But the Americans do not
concede this, insisting on the impossible boundary "north" along Portland
Channel.
Of another feature of the question
The Globe says: "Article IV. distinctly states that Prince of Wales Island shall belong to Russia. Now, as
it happens, no lanl intervenes be
tweeu that island uud Portland Channel, so that if the trainers of the
treaty had no other body of water in
their minds, why should tbey stipulate for what would havo been obvi-
ons'-' If, however, they meant Clarence Straits ns the Canadians assert,
such a condition can readily be under-
Stood,    because   the Island   of   Revilln
Gigedo intervenes.    But the exact po
sition of Portland Chanuel is not the
only puiut of difference between the
two natious. From Portland Chanuel 'the line of demarcation shall follow the summit of the mountains situated parallel to the Coast as far ns the
intersection of 141 deg. But where
the summit of the mountain shall
prove to be at the distance of more
thau ten mariue leacues from the
ocean, "the boundary shall be formed
by a line parallel to the windings of
the Coa-t, which shall never exceed
the difference of ten marine leagues
therefrom.' The Americans deny that
there is any well-defined range governing the case, which lauds them in
a secoud absurdity. The lead of Portland Channel, that thoy maintain is
the correct, starting-point of tbe
bouudary line, is far east of the Coast
range of mountains, and in order to
strike their summit the line would
have to cross several intervening
mountains, making a dip at right angles. Mr. Hunter, a Canadian engineer, from observatious taken on the
spot, declares that there is a coast
range such ns that described iu the
treaty, aud so the situation stands
thus: The Canadians maintaiu that
Clarence Strait, uot Portland Channel, was intended by tbe diplomatists
who drew up the treaty. The Americans deny it, but cannot, for the life
of them, draw the line as therein laid
down. Tho Canadians are convinced
that the coast range of mountains is
correctly described in Article IV. The
Americans assert the contrary, and, as
Canada is hemmed iu at Klondike
while the question remains open, the
loss is hers alone. It is the old story
with variations.'

J, J. CAMPBELL'S VIEWS
A Delegate From Kaalo Asked to Contribute to the Next Discussion.
A speoial meeting <d the Board of
Trade was held lust night nt 8 o'olook
le nominate a dflleRUte to go to Ottawa
to wens upon the authorities Nelson's
claims for recognition in the way of
publio building* for the Customs, Post
office and Inland Revenue services,
after some tiscussion, Mr. W. A.
(ialliher was unanimously chosen as
delegate.
The silver-lead question also came
up for discussion and Mr. J. J. Campbell of the Hall Mines Smelter addressed tho Board explaining his solution of the difficulty which in short
amounted to requesting the Dominion
Government to allow the same quantity of refined product to ho entered
into Canada free of duty as is exported
from Canada in the form of bullion,
which is tantamount to the bullion being refined in bond and returned to
Canada free of duty. After some discussion it was resolved that the question be brought up again at a meeting
to be bold by the Board on Tuasday
88 at 8 o'clock and the Secretary was
instructed to communicate with the
Kaslo Board of Trade asking them to
send a delegation down to hold a joint
meeting to discuss the question as it
wns pointed out by several members
tbey were well qualified to give their
views on Ihe lend question having gone
into it fully in the past.
Applioaitous for membership were
received from P. Ohapninu (of A. McDonald & Co) F. Gibbs (Brackman &
Ker) and S. S. Taylor, all of whom
were elected without ballot.
It was proposed that a deputation
should wait on Mr. Kerr (C. P. R.
traffic manager) to request him to
look into the matter of giving Nelson
more advantageous freight rates. The
deputation nominated to meet Mr.
Kerr were as follows : J. BannerniHii,
A. Ferland, P. Chapman. H. B.
Thomson and M. Des Brisay. The
meeting them adjourned until Tuesday night at 8 o'clock.

Winter has evidently been playing a
game of bluff with us. Wo thought
his strength was surely on the wane,
when lo! once again lie shows his
teeth, shaking his white mantle o'er
the land and binding the earth yvith
his iron grip.
It, is on record that certain venturesome spirits have been seen wending
their way to the water trout, bristling
with angling gear, but the "returns"
have uot yet been filled up.
To the sportsman, the only legitimate lure for trout is the fly; but tho
pothunter (his name in Nelson is "legion") is animated with the sole desire of capturing fish, and the brains
of the hardware manufacturer aro
racked in order to devise somo uew
and deadly engine by which the curiosity of the trout may be enticed.
Tho humble worm, that vade-mecum
of tho old country pot hunter, does not
seem to thrive in this country and his
place is filled by tho grasshopper and
large grubs found in   the dead timber.
However in tho early spring, when
ou cold days the fish refuse to rise,
trolling may be excused. This method
of angling has been happily described
by Andrew Lang as "fishing out of
an omnibus," There is roally little
art in it and provided that the angler
cau guage the depth at which the fish
nre lying the element of luck prevails. Last year the first fish authentically recorded as having been taken
with the fly was ou March 17. During
April and May and up to the middle
of June sport in the Lake was good.
Fish could generally be taken with
the fly from opposite the C. P. H.
wharf dowu to Grohman Creek. As
soon as the water rose to its summer
level the fish seemed to disappear
from the lake. With tho falling water
fair sport was had np to the end of
the season in the river-.
In the Lako the migrations of the
trout are mysterious and it is seldom
tbat fish can be found vising in the
same place. Tbe rise aud fall of the
water is doubtless the chief cause of
this In tho river fish are generally
found lying in certain places, according to the height of tho wator. The
���Hiring fishing ou the lake has a charm
of its own. The fish are shy, hard to
find and hard to rise when found. In
the early pnrt of the spring, the shelving ledges and gravelly bottoms are the
best places for a rising fish. Later
on,as the water rises the fish take well
in the deep mid-stream where the currents und eddies seem to bring feed
on the wator together, and here the
fishing is best in the evening. On the
shallows, however, iish rise well at
any timo of tho day.
A medium sized fly is the host for
spring and the simplest of dressings
will suffice. A flv which bus proved
vory effective is mado with a tail of
scarlet ibis, a body of mixed green and
gold brown wool ribbed with gold tinsel, a dyed olive haoklo and wings
made from the feathers off the breast
of a canvas-back duck. It is hard to
say what insect tho trout tnke this flv
for; probably it resembles one of tho
many kinds of water crickets or beetles. Another good spring fly is dressed with a few sprigs of goldou pheasant tippet for a tail, claret wool body
ribbed with silver and wings from
tho bronze feathers off a mallard's
back.
A warm calm day is essential for
good sport. If your choice of wator
leads yon towards Grohman Creek
laud before you leavo at tho point before the rapid water begins and seo if
tho beautiful yellow lillies are iu
flower. A largo bunch of tliese has
boon known to pacify an angler's better half for a light basket, a late return aud a suspicions taint of whiskey.
When the shadows of evening begin
to close round it is of little uso Ashing
during tno earlier months. Thero is
nothing more delightful on a warm
spring evening than the row back
from Grohman Crook. In the wooded
bank by Squiro's Point the sotting
sun justs permits a glint of light to
rest on the olive buds of tho trees.
Keeping near to the bank opposite
the railway track, yon reach the bare
preoipitous bluffs as tho darkness
begins to fall and tha lights of the
town begin to show forth. Then without succumbing (let us hope) to a
strong temptation to "wet" your fish,
you reach home with the mind refreshed, with the body oagor (o enjoy the
more material refreshment it demand..,
with your whole being permeated with
a spirit of peace and i-hai-ity towards
all men.
SATURDAY REVIEW ON U. S.
Blames American Trusts  For Failuro
of Joint High   Commission.
London, March 134.-The Saturday
Review published this evening, acrimoniously discusses tho future relations
between the United States and Great
Britain in a long article entitled:
"The Rivals," After pointing out
"That nothing material has yet been
the   outcome of   tho passage  wave  of
sentimental hypnotism," it prooeedsto
blame the American-Canadian Commission, saying
"Tliese trusts may be expected to
menace British trade supremacy with
tho same unscrupulous rivalry in the
far east as is now shown in Canada
and ultimately everywhere in thi
world. And, as the trusts control
Americau politics, such immediate advantages as England might gain from
an alliance would be largely overshadowed by the dangers into which the
trusts are likely to force America by
insisting upon an indefinite polioy of
expansion.''
The  article   concludes   by   advising
England   to   pursue   hor   own      way
"Treating   America   with   the   same
courtesy which she extends   to   conti
nontal nations, no less and no  more. "
TROUBLES IN JAMAICA.
Negotiations Entered Into to End   the
Political   Crisis.
Kingston, Jamaica, March 24.���After two days of anxiety during which
business has suffered, the people being
engaged in attending indiguation
meetings, it is said that the Government haB realized that its choice lay
between the exercise of force and a
compromise. Therefore negotiations
wero begun yesterday looking to a
modification of the obnoxious tariff
bill, taxing industrial implements and
literature, which the government is
credited with intending to pass through
the council with the help of four
new official members who are said to
have been appointed in order to outvote the representatives. It is said
that the negotiations have been unsuccessful up to the present in securing
an adjournment of the matter until
April 4.

The Sale of Mining Shares
Has Been Very Brisk.
THE   DIAMOND   DRILL
Interesting Account by an Expert  of its
Uses,   Advantages and Disadvantages-
The past week has, for Nelson,
been an exceptionally lively one in
stocks. Host of the brokers report
sales considerably above the average
It csems in fact that Ihe people of Nel
son are beginning to awake to the
fact thnt there is good money to he
made by judicious investment in British Columbia mining slocks, aud are
investing their money accordingly.
Wonderful shares, quoted at six
cents, have been in great demand the
past few days, and there is a general
impression abroad that very favorable developments are taking place in
connection with that property. Fairmont (Ymir) stock has also been in
good demand during the week, and
the same applies to Tamarack shares,
though the latter is very hard to get.
Athabasca have been firm nt b'l, and
large blocks of Uticn stocks have also
changed hands. Altogether the outlook for dealers in stocks seems exceptionally bright .iust now.

Hall, K. C, March 24.-A good
strike has been made on the B. C.
claim on Toad Mountain about one
mile from here.
Mr. D. R. Morrison the owner ot
the property has the lodge stripped f*n
25 feet, and a shaft down 10 feet wilh
a snlendid showing of oro from -whioh
he has had un assay of $4 in gold, $."> lid
in silver, and $55.08 in copper. The
shaft is improving with the deptb and
has the promising appearance of a valuable property.
The representative of the coinpanv
which insured the buildings whioh
were recently burned down at the
Dundee mine went up to the property on Thursday, aud us aoen
as his report is iu, and tlie insurance
adjusted, the work of rebuilding will
commence. Tho management of the
mine anticipates uo difficulties in the
matter, and the work will probably he
startod up in about a week's time.

T. R. Deacon, manager Ontario Gold
Concessions, gives Ihe results of his
experience in prospecting with tlie diamond drill in an article in the Rat
Portage Miner.    Ho Buys :
Three*different, kinds of drills nre
mado, one being what is called hydraulic feed, or its thrust being produced by hydraulic pressure; oue
having what is called positive feed, or
beiug forced forward a given distance
in a giveu number of tuniB, which
ratio may be altered to some extont;
and oue having spring feed, nnd which
may be increased or diminished at
will by simply tightening or loosening
the nut that compresses the spring.
For this climate nnd the nature of the
rock to be bored I prefer the lutter.
Now, as to tne method of applying
the drill in prospecting, let us suppose
that we have what often occurs here,
a showing 011 the surface that seems to
some extent promising and yet we are
not sure whether there is any extent
of vein or whether it hold out in
depth. We want to find out at the
least cost of money and in the shortest
possible time. In a district or locality where there Iiub beeu considerable
surface disturbnncu and in a position
to bo to a certain extent positive of the
nature of our deposit. If we sink a
shuft to a depth of 100 feet the total
cost will be very close on fUOOO, and
the time consumed will be at least four
months. If the shaft is made largo
enough nnd properly timbered it will
cost more and take longer. If the
property turns out good then the shaft
is all right, but if not we nro out the
JIIOOO. With the same amount of
money 10 holes might have been bored
with a diamond drill to tbe lame depth
at iuturvuls of say 10 feet apart along
the strike of the vein and the vein
sampled for a length of 100 twit, and
Iho work done in two and a half
mouths. But as holes aie seldom
horud in the plane of the vein, the machine planed on the vein at a distance
of say 1500 feet or so lo one side, and
tho hole bored at such 1111 angle us to
cut the vein at a given depth we have
the additional advantage of cross culling the country for u considerable
ilistancu on each side of the vein, and
encountering and locating any parallel
veins which may exist, or of llndiii*.*
our own vein should any slip nr fault
have occurred iu it. In aclditiou we
have a clean, neat, >onlinuous sample
of ore across our vein from wall to
wnll at the point where it is cut. and
also samples of the wall rock, and from
these can be learned a great deal of
what we may expect to lind when
mining is begun, If the ground is
seamy and tlie rock very schistose
the core will be broken up into small
pieces, anil this would indicate thnt
Ihe ground is leaky nnd we may have
trouble with water in our mine, eon-
Hct|iiently, when buying our first ma
ohinery we will provide sulllcient
boiler capacity and a pump of good
size to handle the water. On the!
other Im 1 nl the corn may come out iu
long, solid pieces and the bole may
hold the water from lite drill all the
way down, and Ibis will Have a dry1
shnft. I found Ibis to bn Ihn rise iu
sinking a (baft to a depth of 150 feel.
HO feet below Ibe level of the lake,
which was only 38Q0 yards distant,
and the shaft was quits dry. Of
course it will bo remembered these are
only indications,
One advantage ur the diamond drill
is that it dons not at] ono hole show
any considerable ana of the cross section of the vein, and this is often
urged against its use, as it is said you
may hit the vein at a particularly
rich spot or at a particularly poor
spot, or you may hit it where the vein
may have suddenly narrowed iu or
widened ont, and thus get a totally
false conception of the value or size
of the vein, and that a few feet either
way would show quite a different
result. This is quite true, but the
way to overcome that is to bora a
number of holes from the same point,
oue below the other, this will test its
width at various depths, and then bore
a series of boles aloug the strike of the
vein, aud in this way a great area of
the vein may be sampled very cheaply
and in a short time, or a few holes
may show from the nature of the vein
matter that the deposit is of no value
nnd money may be saved by not developing it. Iu the oase of prospecting
and locating ore bodies of minerals
which do not occur in veins but iu ir
regular massive deposits such as iron
or nickel the diamond drill is very extensively used ; iu fact, for tlie determination and the extent of these particular kinds of mineral bodies thoy
are almost exclusively used in many
sections in reference to shaft sinking.
I must say in conclusion, that I am
of the opinion that a diamond drill
skillfully and judiciously used is a
splendid scheme for cheaply aud
quickly prospecting property, and that
the disadvantages are largely outweighed by the advantages.

BIN DING TWINE DUTY FREE.
Washington, March 21.��� The Score-
tiny of the Treasury has issued uii order for the free admission of binding
twine to the United States from Canada. This is becuuse of the fact thut
the new Canadian tariff puts binding

which make the article dutiable;
UNEXPECTED SURPLUS.
London, March 25.���The Rome cor-
respondent of tbe morning  Post   says
it is believed the Italian budget will
show a surplus instead of tho an-
ti-ipated ileticit   owing   to the tobacco
monopoly yielding an  extra profit  of

other taxes have proved considerably
better than tbe estnuutos.
