For a fortnight  past   an   advertise
mciit lias   appeared    in   local   papers
the   Poorman   mine   and those of the
Granite,    This can toadily be offeoted
mooing that tl.e properties of tl.e  b* ��""-"->>i��f? ������>* tnnnel  on the low-
ORt level of tho Poorman mine,   which
Granite Gold Mines, Limited, would
be sold under an oidei of court, tenders to be lodged with the registrar of
the county court by noon on 31st of
August. Yesterday the sale was
effected and the poiperty was bought
in by the liquidator of tk3 Duncan
llines at a price of about $134,000,
being the amount of the indebtedness
of the Granite Gold Mines, Limited,
to the Duncan Minos. ,
The reoonstruotion of the Duncan
Minos 1ms recently boen carried
through in London, and the new company, tho name of which is The Dnn-
can United Mines, Limited, went to
allotment some two weeks ago. The
capital of that company is ��300,00(1 In
shares of ��1 each which ate credited
as IB shillings paid, tho remaining
live shillings being payable in calls
not, exceeding one shilling each of
which one shilling is payable on application and allotment,tha remainder
to be called up as required. The new
company bas arranged to take over
the assets and liabilities of the obi
company and the liquidator of the old
coinpany hat entered into an agreement with them lo this effeot. The
transfer of the assets to tho liquidator
of thc now company will bo mado as
soon as possible.
The first undertaking by the new
company will be Ihe development of
the Poorman mine on twice tbe scale
upon which it is now being worked;
that is to sny, the output of tho mine
will bo increased to supply -10 stamps
instead of 20 (the present number).
This of course, will involve a corresponding increase in the number of
stamps. It is proposed by the engineer, Mr. E. It. WoakeB, lo sink a
shaft cn the lowest level of the present
workings to a depth of some .10(1 feet
below that level and to run from it
threo oilier levels, at equal distances
apart. If the mine bears out at that
depth the shewing in its present lowest workings there will be no dilli-
culty in keeping at least 40 stamps
-Hipplied, but until this development
bus been carried out with sufficiently
good results no steps will bo taker,
towards an increase of tho present
mill, lt is understood tbat Mr.
Woalccs has already completed all bis
preliminary at rangeinents for the
necosssary work and no time will be
hist in commencing up soon as the
necessary Instructions are received
from London. These, it is expected,
will be obtained some time in the
course of tho next month.
This is, nl the present moment, a
large body of ore blocked out iu the
workings above the present lowest (or
fifth) level. This level is about 300
foot from the surface. As is perhaps
known, tbo Granite vein runs parallel
to the Poorman vein at somo distance
higher up the mountain. This vein
has been woikcd from tho surface by
means of au inclined shaft nnd when
work upon it ceased the vein had been
driven upon at a depth of 800 feet for
a distance of about 100 feet from tho
shaft, and showed strongly in the sole
of the level all tho way. There was
then every reason to believe tbat thc
disturbance in the vein whicli had
Occasioned so much trouble to the
Granite compiiry had been passed
through, and that thc vein bad again
been found in place at depth. While
it is intended at this time to proceed
with the developcmnt of thc Poorman
mine alono (on which tbe indications huva been consistently favorable) the directors havo in view a
connection between   the   workings  of
at a distance of 1,100 feet or more
will, according to surveys, cut the
Granite vein at a depth of approximately 40(1 or Boo feet below the workings on the latter. Outeropings indicate tbe existence of at least two
parallel veins between those of the
Poorman and Granite mines which if
they continue nt depth, will be cut
iu tbo course of driving this tunnel,
The directors of the Duncan Mines
while they recognized that the only
course open to tbem was to take back
the properties of the Granite Hold
Mines felt that it was incumbent upon
tbem to give the shareholders of the
lattor company an opportunity to continue their interests in it upon the
same terms as tluse which wore offered to tbeir own shareholders. The
reconstruction, however, being ono of
their own compuny alone, it was impossible to offer the shares in the
new company for subscription to the
shareholders of the Granite (Inld
Mines in the same way that, they
wero offered to the shareholders in
the Duncan Mines, 'ilii.; legal difficulty was obviated by the liquidator
offering the shares in the new com
pany for sale to Ihe shareholders of
the Granite Mines pro rata to the
amount of their holdings at n nominal
premium of 3d. per share This was
accordingly done as soon as the new
company had gone to allotment, and
although the limit of timo ill whicli
those shares can be taken up has not
been reached a number of the sha-o-
holdera have already purchased tneir
On tlie allotment already made the
now company possesses ample funds to
carry ont tbe programme above indicated, and there seems to bellow ovory
reason to believe that that company
may look forward to a successful
future, ln addition to the properties
of the Granite Gold Mines the new
company will possess a large interest
in tbe Queen Hess mine as well as in
a number of properties throughout
thc country.

Miner, three gentlemen, Mr. Alexander McNab, Mr. C. E. Shepherd and

taken. All undesireable foreigners
have been expelled from Dunkirk and
the Chateau at Compiegnc is closely
guarded by troops. It was at first
proposed to station troops along the
entire railroad truck from Dunkirk
to Compiegno but tbis was abandoned
owing to lack of troops. Tho greatest
cause for fear on the part of the police
is the close' proximity of dwelling
houses to the railroad in Dunkirk.
Bach liouse has been examined and
the occupants have beon compelled to
give detailed information regarding
themselves. All a.-cess of visitors to
Ihe Chateau at Coinpiogne is now forbidden except to holders of special

The Mining Journal of London in
an articlo on "BritisliColumbia Economically Considered" among other
hlngs advocates tlie employment of
cheap Asiatic lahoi in tlie mines,
wliich it sajH is easily obtained,whito
nun to lie employed as overseers or
contractors and it doclai'OS Unit it lias
no doubt it would greatly stimulate
mining activity, although whether,
on I he wlinle. it would add to tile
prosperity of the province is doubtful,
as tlie groat linllf of the wages received hy the miners would undoubtedly
lie sent out of the country.. ,\..i
The Journal views the situation
from a distance and has not that clear
insigbt of the Asiatic question whicli
the majority Of the people of the
province have. Heie the Asiatics arc
regarded as an unmixed evil, ami the
legislators of the province arc endeavoring to devise some moans of getting
i*ld of or of abating what they consider to lie a menace to the well being
of the country, but so far thoir
eil'oi'tH have nol heen successful, The
Australian colonies long sinco put
laws into elVeet which virtually prohibits the entrance of Asiatics into
their territory and thc United States
line an exclusion act which prohibits
Chinese from entering that country.
Man;,' reasons can and have been urged
against them, hut the principal of
these arc that their competition degrades white worlii t'S   for   Ihe   I'Ottson
that thev toil for compensation so low
thai tIn- Caucasian cannot liveon it;
they either send llicir.wngcs ont of
tic country or when they have accumulated what to them is a fortune
they tal.e it with them to China, thus
causing a constant drain on the province; they seldom bocotne permanent
settlers and are nol, owing to their
nun progressive ideas and generally
degraded condition, the proper material out of which good citizens can
he made ami with whom a great commonwealth could tic built up; ill time
of war thoy could not lie relied on to
I f anv service in I he way of defend-
in;' Ihe country i" which they inalie a
living,  and    in    tin f    pea,"   their
pt-OHonca has a tendency to drive into
other countries many of those citizen., who ordinarily could be depended on lo talin up arms.
Il Hi" Milling Journal had a nearer
view of the Asiatics of British Columbiu and of ihe elfeets of their piesence
than it has, it would not, we believe,
advocate their employment in the
mini's here,

Architect Overseeing Post Oflice Building Objects to
Marble Work.
Tells Contractors to Either Do

li is reported that considerable fri.-

nnd the contraetorB on tbo new post-

t,.i I has issui'il orders that unless the
specifications aie strictly adhered to
tin- work must shut down immediate v. and Im has retused to sign Hip
monthly estimate.
The trouble is principally ovn the
marble. Tho specifications stated
that all the stone should he chiselled.
Instead of -liioh it has been bush
hliliimcrod, and, it ia said, nut properly cut. At. the oorner of the
building where the marble should bo

bed I'm' the next course is only an inch
and o half wide at one place and nut
more than six inches wldo for some
feel, leaving a large sp-in- tc be filled
in wiili mortar and rabble stone. As
this m practically Hie corner mono of
lin bulling, on which art immense
wci|{ht will rest, it can bo seen how
Important tlio matter is.
The words of tbo specifications
which apply to this pint of tho work
road us follows: "All stonework to
lm of Ihe host quality. In ease of
iliinuigi' the same shall ho cut out. and
replaced by new stones. No filling
up or stopping will be allowed, AM
stone to be worked and set in the best
and must workmanlike manner, nil
joinings, bonding, dwellings, cramping and selection of stone to be rogii-
lab'ii by tbo architect or party in
charge Cut marble to bo chiselled,
rounded margins to lie tooled."
It is stated that the blocks of marble
aro not of a uniform thickness, varying in some cases as much as throe-
eighths of un inch.
As Mr. l.i'Moinc, the contractor,
has gone, to Ottawa, anil the foreman
of the works to Kaslo, it was impossible to interview them as to I heir side
of thu case. Tin- timekeeper refused
to any anything on the matter, anil
intimated Hint the less the papers bad

John Burtt Morgan,
.lust here we. may   panso to   observe
that any definition   of   Qod,   however
complete, must in the nature of things
prove seriously imperfect.     The   sub-
���i.'t. is so vast  ihut   thought   stagaors
ml   language   fail'-,   and yet the attempt must be   made.    The very   fact
of His self-revelation   in   nature   and
in the Hook,   suggests   a capacity   on
man's part to   frame   a   concept  and
shape" a   definition,   adequate to  the
Icinands of mind uml   spirit,    of   the
Hod who must be known to lu' serve.l.
Ofthe   many "definitions   which   hnve
been   formulated, perhaps   none  surpass, for simplicity  of expression and
faithfulness to Scripture thought,that
of William   Nowtou Clarke,  D.  lb, of
Colgate University.     He says    -'Ood
is the personal Spirit,  perfectly good,
who   in   holy   lovo  creates,   sustains
and guides all.'' Analysing Ibis statement he hns shown thai  it covers   the
essentials of the case us   follows:    (1)
The   nature    of   Clod���"the   personal
Spirit."    (2) The  charaoter  of Ood������
"perfectly good ."     (3) Tbe   relation
ofUod to all othor existence���"ciealcs

motive   of   Ood���"holy   love."     For
the purposes  of  svMom uml clearness
in our brief examination of this greatest of all themes, we   jiny not be able
to do bi'ltci tba,, follow this analysis.
5(1) "Hod is Hie   pei-Bonal   Spirit,."
At the very initial point,    tbo   Christian oonooption   of the   Supreme   Being takes   a   unique   position    in    the
world of thought.   "Hod is a Spirit,'
said Hie Heveuler   and  shattered at  a
blow   for all who aocept tho authority
of Ilis word, every   form of materialism,    Hut Ilis  representation   of  ihe
Father did moie than clothe llim wilh
immateriality,    lt showed llim to the
world as the great   Spirit   who thinks
and will and   loves,   a    scl(-conscious
and solf-directing   Personality.    Yea,
moie!      Christ    declares    llim   to   be
"the only true God,"   and   materialism, pantheism    nnd   polytheism   are
excluded from Christian    thought forever.    And    what   conception   of   the
Supremo can better meet tho demands
of reason or bettor satisfy the Instinct
of the   spirit'.'     smely   nothing   b'ss
than   u  personal    Intelligence    can
account for the fuels  and   pbonoiuonu
presunleil to onr consciousness.    Moreover, man nn a personal   spirit is   the
highest order of being   known.    Him

Vancouver, Aug, 31. The Hritish
Columbia Canners' Combine claim to
have received word from most reliable
sources that nol a ease of salmon will
bo shipped from Puget Sound to
fjnglnnd, Tbe news bus been roecived
here with grtiiit satisfaction,
The Puget Wound eaiineis, owing to
their ability to pack sookeyo salmon
cheaper than the fraser river canners,
bad it in their power to lower the
price of salmon below what tne Fraser i-ivor canners could sell them ut.
and still make money. They could, i
so disposed, ruin the industry on the
Canadian side. It. has been announced, however, thnt Hie entire
Puget Sound pack will be maiketoi! at
home at better prices than could be
obtained abroad,
'The liritisli Columbia puck, including ihe northern rivers, will be
1,100,000 ill round figures and as the
Canadian dinners only hnve a small
shipment of 50,000 cases from Alaska
to com polo wilh in England they will
market their salmon judiciously, only
sending about 400,000 cases to atari
with and in the meantime endeavoring
to create other markets in Australia
and elsewhere.

board. No endorsement whatever of
Hie Rossland management. Such a
thing impossible as now dhootora
cannot meeu iiii Friday. Committee
of investigation appointed ful l.v
realize their tesponsibilityand will act
fiee from ptejudico. The general
meeting was strongly in favor of making reasonable terms with the unions
ut Kossland nnd Northport, the general expressed opinion being that a
policy of conciliation would have
averted all the trouble."
London, Aug. 30.��� Everyone i�� satisfied witli the removal of tlie Whitaker Wright directors at the Lo Koi
meeting yesterday. OQloials in Loudon
us well as iu British Columbia will
remain in olliee pending tlie arrival of
Frecht-ville uml either Sir Henry
Tyler or Director Ilill. These will
have lull power to investigate the
business methods pursued at Kossland
and lull authority to confer with the
unions witli a view to restoring harmony. Hud a vote on the general
management been taken yesterday it
was estimated that at least HO per
cent, would have east their ballots
in favor of a complete change,

the Le Koi directors took place today.
A mutual exchange of opinions resulted in tlie agreement of the investigating committee to sail for New fork

to prepare a statement of all points
in dispute and sucli evidence as is
before them bearing upon the issue
involved. Le Koi shares have stiifon-
ed in consequnco of the change of

donah! last night when asked as to
Governor Mackintosh's statement appearing in The Spokesman-Review of
today to the effect that he had information us to new directors indorsing
the strike policy was untrue.
Mr. Macdouald continued; ''Since
the shareholders' policy with regard
to the strike has been made known
through two directorates, each fully
indorsing tho policy of the other, nobody need be longer deceived with
