.    MACKINTOSH IN LUCK.
Ex-Governor Has a Good. Offer���Ross-
land's Ore Production.
Rossland, B. C, April 13.��� The destruction of the Melrose smelting
works at Oakland, Cal., where experiments .were, being made of a new process promising to substantially reduce
the coBt tf treating various classes of
ores, has not proved an unmixed evil
so far as Governor Mackintosh, of
Rossland is concerned. By telegram
received from Han F'rancisco today he
was offered 842,000 for his interest in
the real estate alone. D. J. Macdonald, his expert, has gone to San Francisco to look after the matter.
The ore shipments for the week ending yesterday were 8,049 tons, a falling off of 204 tone, as compared with
the preyiouB week. Le Roi increased
its output by 194 tons, while the Centre Star showed a decrease of 312 tons.
The gain for the War Eagle was 64
Jons in an output for the week of  750
Now that the fishing season has
fairly opened it is up to the sportsmen of Nelson to take some action in
the-direction of protecting the game
fish of the district from the underhand meaus attributed to pothunters
who supply the markets of this city
and Rossland. Tbe Miner Is not in
possession of specific information that
illegal means are used by this stamp
of fishermen and can only repeat tbe
general impression -prevalent among
thh spportmen who adhere to the fly
and other legitimate methods of taking fish, that the means adopted by
pothunters will not bear close scrutiny. Last week a party of Rossland
men, including several of the most
skilful disciples of Izaak Walton in
the Kootenay, spent several days at
Slocan Junction. Th.y fished early
and late and employed every known
ily, but their aggregate catch could
have been carried away in a hat. The
statement Is made, however, that the
day the patty was there a pothunter
shipped 25 p.unds of trout to Nehson
and Rossland. This sport must be
expert beyond comparison and; the secret of his success if sold to visitors to
the junction would win him a competency in a year or two. The day after
the trout season opened 05 pounds of
trout was shipped to market from the
junction, a very handsome catch at a
period when it is asserted the fish
were not rising at bait rf any description.
The fishing grounds at Slocan
Junctionare said to be, and the statement has' never been denied so far lis
The Miner is aware, the finest trout
.water in British Columbia. It may be
that the supply of fish is so large that
their numbers will never be seriously
depleted by fishing for the market,
but most sportsmen are inclined to believe that the fishing has already
suffered and that if the present pace
is kept up, a few seasons will see the
junction pools well nigh exhausted.
A Nelson man who returned last
week from a lengthy trip to the east
makes a statement which may throw
some light on the methods employed
far capturing trout for the market in
this district. He happened to be purchasing some small articles in a Toronto place where nets were manufactured und noted a bundle of netting
labelled "Nelson, B.C." The proprietor was asked abont the matter and
replied: "That net is a very fine
piece of work. You will note tliat
the mesh is very small and that the
material is unusually strong. The man
who ordered It wanted something extra good to take trout with." When
asked as to who the net was to be
shipped to the manufacturer closed up
and declined to discuss the matter
further.
MYSTERIOUS   SHOOTING.
Columbia, S. C, April 13.���John
J. Griffin, soliciting agent of the Norfolk A Western R. R. Co., died here
at 4 o'clock from a bullet wound received in the room of H. B. Evans, a
brother of former Governor Evans.
Mr.. Evans reported that Mr. Griffin
committed suicide. The police took
charge of the premises and Evans
was taken to jail. There was no witness and he refuses to he interviewed.
A FREE TRADE  COUNTRY.
San Domingo, April 13.���The Dominican congress has decreed that all
produce and commerce of the country

Berlin, April 13.���Crown. Prince
Frederick William tonight proceeds
to Vienna in acceptance of an invitation from Emperor Francis .loseph of
Austiia. During the crown prince's
visit, a number of festivities lasting
several days and including parades
and ft large court ball will be held in
his honor. Emperor Francis Joseph
during his last stay in Berlin and.
more recently at Munich during the
celebrations on March 12, attending
the 80th birth day of the prince regent of Bavaria, conceived an extraordinary affection for ihe, crown
prince to which he has since testified
upon a number ot occasions. The Emperor of Austria is especially pleased
with the erown piince'B modest, frank
and unaffected bearing. Shortly after
the crown prince returns from Vienna, he will go on April 24 to Bonne
ou the Rhine there to matriculate at
the university. Emperor William will
accompany him to Bonne. The matriculation of the crown prince will
take place with solemn ceremonies.
The emperor intends to stay several
days at Bonne. The crown prince will
stop at a hotel there until the villa
which the emperor: has bought from
Prof. Finkler, who was in charge.of
the exhibit of the Bonne university
at the Chicago exposition, and which
has been thoroughly renovated, is
ready for occupation. The .crown
prince will join the student corps called "Borussia." (Tbe Linten name
for Prussia), of which the emperor
was a member.
The Turkish ambassador to Germany, Tewflk Pasha, will dine, with
the emperor tomorrow.
Emperor William leaves for Hamburg next Monday to greet the re
turned sick and. wounded German
soldiers from China. On April 18th
the emperor will proceed to Kiel to
witness the: entrance of his son,Prince
Adalbert, into the German navy,
It is admitted in the official circles
that the majority ot the indemnity
claims have been formulated at Pekin, but not all, consequently it is
impossible to state the amount of the
total to be demanded. Officials deny
that Dr. Stubel,former German consul
general at Shanghai and now director
of the colonial department who this
mouth went to London to assist in
expediting the conclusion of the negotiations regarding the indemnity to
be demanded of China, agreed while
in London that Germany and England
would support any fixed sum of indemnity. The statement published in
the American press that Germany is
making an exorbitant claim for indemnity, is energetically denied in
otlicial'circles and officials assured the
representative of the Associated press
that Germany's claim is considerably
below that of France or Russia.
The Rhine continues to rise; at Mannheim 24 feet of water is reported.
The inhabitants of the middle Rhine
country aro making preparations to
escape the flood. The river Main is
rising because of the continued rains
in the lower Franconia district.
The emperor's annual diplomatic
dinner occurs tonight and .will be
held at the Castle. The absence -of
Ambassador White renders the pres:
ence of any of the member, of the
American embassy impossible owing
to the rules of.etiquette,
The small town ot Tolhemit, near
the emperor's estate at Cadtenen, will

At the trial at Elberfleld of Chief
of Staff Surgeon. Schimmel, charged
with freeing for a financial consideration, the sons of wealthy families
from military service, the accused was
found guilty of the principal charges,
The conclusion of the trial has been
postponed until next week. In tbe
meantime the authorities have diseov-
eied new cases of a like character. As
a result of the continued investigations, Dr. Schuttz of Cologne has been
arrested and will be tried on charges
similar to thorn: brought against Surgeon Schimmel.
The German authorities have been
making extensive trials and experiments since March 1, near Lindnu on
Lake Constance with a new type of
submarine torpedo boat. The inventor, who is a civil engineer named Curt
of the navy department, preserves silence concerning the result of the experiments but it has been ascertained
that the tests have been so far successful. The boat dives for a Bhort
time to a   depth   of   300 feet.
From statistics it is learned that
crime among adults in Prussia is decreasing, while juvenile crime is increasing One-fourth of the criminals
sentenced in Prussia were, drunkards
and of the 5,200 prisoners of the peni-
tentaries under sentence, 1,100 were
Poles.
An inquiry made among therecruitB
for the German army by a   number of
officers, showij the existence of gross
ignorance In the majority of those examined regarding publio personages
and events. Out of 78 recruits from
various parts of Prussia, 2J w.-re unable to give any answer when questioned as tp who was the Emperor of
Germany. Twenty-two of the recruits
questioned designated the emperor as
a great general, several of them called him a renowned field marshal,Jsix
thought him to be the minister of war
while 14 of the replies were approximately correct. Several thought the
late Prince Bismarck was emperor, a
great poet and a translator of the
Bible.
An amusing warfare has broken out
between the Kreus Zeltung and the
Kleines Journal abont the real sentir
ments and the political, social and
religious creed of Emperor William.
The Kleines Jonrnal says the Bremen
incident made no impression upon tbe
emperor, who is as gay and energetic
as heretofore, while the Kreuse Zei-
tung maintains the contrary. Both
papers are read by the emperor and
they are wording their articles so as
to appeal to the emperor himself for
a decision of the controversy.

RECRUITING FOR  NELSON RIFLE
COMPANY STARTED���12 NEW
MEN NOW DRILLING'.
WORK STARTS TOMORROW ON RE'
PAIRS TO  RANGES-SHOOTING
BEGINS SOON.
The prospects for a first class season
with, the Nelson Rifle company are
very bright. At the end of last year
the company's strength-was very seriously depleted by the loss of h number
of good men who had joined the various contingents raised for active ser-
ivce. In fact the establishment had
dropped to a point where there were
under 20 effective members on the
company roll. Recruiting was started
a short time sii.ee, and the result was
very gratifying. At the, first .recruit
drill last week twelve new mep turned out on parade. All were first class
men and the squad-will make a very
creditable addition to the company,
Sergeant-Instructor' Steel, who bas
had considerable expeiienee in English volunteer regiments, was in
oharge of the squad and put the new
men through the initial steps of squad
drill. They picked up the woik
smartly and will soon be in shape to
parade with the company. Eight
more men are required to fill up the
company to its full strength of forty
fi ve rank and tile and these vacancies
will doubtless be filled with comparatively little trouble. Information regarding enlistment can be had from
Captain Macdonell, Lieutenants Mac-
leod and Phillips, or the non-commissioned officers. No information is
to hand as yet from the militia department regarding the application
for the establishment of a Maxim gun
squad in connection with the Rifle
company or the new drill shed. Both
are regarded as important- features,
the materializing of which will place
the company in splendid shape. The
drill hall is particularly required and
the company will^ never Becure the
degree of efficiency possible of attainment until action is taken by the department in erecting the -uilding. It
is known that plans are being prepared for the structure but no details
can be obtained as to when the work
is to be started.
Work will be commenced on Monday at the rifle ranges and it is regarded as probable that the first shoot
of the season will take place on the
27th instant. The targets and butts
suffered considerably during the winter, particularly the former. A mud
slide came down the mountain behind
the targets and damaged the, stands
besides filling up the markers' pits.
The ore sacks filled with sand, forming the- mantlet in front of the targets, burst-'and will nave to, be replaced before shooting is recommenced. At a meeting is to be held shortly to arrange as to the standing of
civilian members of the Rifle .association. Trouble has heen encountered
iu the past by reason of civilians being issued rifles and the membeis of
the company not. .having arms with
which to drill.. The granting of the
company's application for an additional stand of rifles would put an end
to difficulties of this nature but in
the meantime some other arrangement
agreeable to all the parties interested
will have to be arrived at.

A Useful Institution Has the
Prospectors' Exchange
Proved to Be.
Work was reumed yesterday on the
Highlander mine at Ainsworth. Maxwell Stevenson, junior, returned on
Friday from the east where he spent
the winter and no time was lost In
placing a crew of 13 or 15 men at
work. It is understood that Mr. Stevenson has instructions from his company to put the big tunnel through
to the lead and that this work is in
full swing
Readers of The Miner will remember that the Highlander mine which
is owned by American capitalists
with headquarters in Philadelphia
was thoroughly prospected wjth a
diamond drill last winter. Manager
Stevenson went enst with a trunk full
of cores and tbe nature of the cores
was probably ample to convince his
people that the property was all right.
Work had then progressed for a considerable distance on the main tunnel
designed to tap the lead at a great
depth. If the purpose is now to
drive into the ledge, and the drill
work showed the lead in ore, the
Highlander will open up a very large
ore body.
The Highlander should not be confused with the Highland mine whicli
is operated. from Nelson.
USEFUL   INSTITUTION.
The Prospector's Exchange, established in Nelson on the 1st of January
last, promises to-become an important
jfactor in the development of the mineral resources of the district. The institution is now widely known
through liberal advertising. Its method of operation is novel but contains
the principles of common sense. Andrew F. Rosenberger, the promoter of
the Exchange, is a practical mining
man and a successful prospector of
many years standing. As a prospector
he felt the need of an intermediary
whereby the prospector could be
brought into businseBs relationship
with the capitalist seeking investments in mining property. When his
"ship came in," lie determined to establish the Exchange as a means of
bringing prospector and capitalist together without the intervention of expensive middlemen and promoters. As
a representative of capital he grasped
the idea that an institution which
would enable the man with the money
to reach the man with the prospect
without the heavy expense of experts
who often spent a season or two before
securing a meritorious property, would
fill a long felt want, hence the commencement of the.Exchange.
The prime object of tho Exchange is
to bring the jprospector and the mine
owner into touch with the bnyer aud
to tbis end the institution is advertised widely in the mining,sections and
in the leading centers of the continent. Parties owning claims ... invited to forward a description of th-'v
properties ith iplas c o: ���
the,offer is listed in the report issued
regularly from the Exchange is to
hand, and proves lo be H novelty in
the shape of mining advertising. It
lists properties throughout the district with a brief description including the price asked and terms of payment. These reports are sent to
leading mining men and brokers in
the United States and Canada. In
this way a piospect is brought to the
attention of hundreds of interested
parties. Should any of the prospects
appeal to a possible purchaser and a
request for further information be
forwarded, the inquirer is placed in
communication with the owner. If
a sale is effected by this means the
Exchange gets 10 percent., otherwise
no charge of any nature is made.
Mr. Rosenberger reports that he is
in constant receipt of requests for first
class prospects and that the supply is
none too great. The comprehensive
exhibit of ore at the Exchange has attracted considerable attention.
THE PANAMA CANAL.
Columbian Minister May Take Matter
to Great Britain.
London, Apiil 13.���Senor Gutierras
Ponce, the recently appointed Colombian minister to Great llritain, denies
the report that he has approached the
British government with respect to
the Panama canal. Senor Ponce told
a reporter of the Associated Press that
up to the present the Colombian negotiations in this subject had been entirely confined to Washington.
"Eventually," said the. Colombian
envoy, "I may have to take up the
question because it is of the greatest
importance to th" commerce of the
world and the recent action of Great
Britain on the subject ot Hay-Paunae-
fote treaty shows that she is not indifferent. In regard to the ultimate
disposition of the matter," said Senor

AN ENORMOUS   INDEMNITY.
China Will Have to   Pay  Hundreds of
Millions  of Dollars.
Berlin, April 13.���The correspondent of the Associated Press bears
tonight from a German authoritative
source, that the Chinese indemnities
for wnr expenses exclusive of the
claims of individuals and missions
have been fixed as follows, Russia,
380,0001000 marks (about 890,000,000);
France, 200,000,UOO marks (about $05,-
0011,00(1); Germany, 240,000,000 marks
(about 8)10,1X10,000) : England, 90,000,-
000 marks (about 822,00,000). Franco
will also present claims for the indemnity of the Italian mission.
THE SEASON IS VERY LATE
PROSPECTORS     WILL     NOT    GET
OUT INTO THE HILLS FOR
A MONTH VET.
SEASON'S   WORK    LIKELY   TO BE
CONFINED   TO   KNOWN
SECTIONS.
The prospectors who make Nelson
their headquarters during the winter
months are beginning to prepare for
the spring operations. Tbe season is
the most backward of recent years,
and it is probable that another
month will elapse before the prosectors can get out of town with any guarantee of being able to follow their
calling. The reason for this will be
appreciated after a glance at the hills
surrounding tlie city. With the exception of a few southern slopes all
the hills are covered with snow from
a point a few hundred feet up. A ,roah
could not get an Hours march away
from the city without- encountering
sufficient snow to make prospecting
Impossible. It is stated that the conditions elsewhere are the same or
worse. The/so facts lead to the impression that tun prospecting season will
be short.
A weil known local prospector, who
is thoroughly familiar with tho sitna
tiou in this district, has expressed the
opinion that the number of locations
recorded this year will be very considerably below the mark of last year
and preceding seasons. In support of
his theory he advances the argument
that the prospectors havo a large
amount of assessment woik to do on
claims staked last year aud that by
the time this woik is finished the season will be too fai advanced for much
field work. Another factor is that the
demand for claims is not so brisk as
might be desiied and prospctors would
rather put in their time developing
claims already recorded than in going
afield in soaicli of other property for
whicli there docs not Beem to be a demand. Up to the present time there
has been no excitement in any special
quarter and thia tends to keep attention fixed on known sections.
Last year no fewer than 777 claims
wore staked in the Nelson district.
Tho Mineral act requires that an assessment of Sloo shall be paid on these
claims or work performed on them
equivalent to the cash. A number of
the claims are sm-e to el- 've, hut the
bala  ae f   t k id   will
require work amounting to many
thousands of dollaiB. The approaching season is Bate to see unparalleled
development in the Forty-Nine crock
section aud other parts of the fiee-
niilling belt west of the city. Tlie
bonding of the May A Jennie property
lunt fall caused something of a rush to
thib district and as a result many
properties were recorded. Witli a
producing mine in the section the
value of claims will be very materially
enhanced and owners of claims will
sec to it thut their assessments aro attended to.
Conditions governing the operations
of prospectors have altered much of
late. It has come about that a prospector who desires to be successful
must spend considerable time on a
claim before it becomes a negotiable
prospect, the demand being for properties on which a reasonable showing
of ore has been secured. This feature
is calculated to have the effect of inducing prospectors to confine their attention to one claim or group rathei
than to staking claims all over the
district wherever^ some one else manages to secure an outcrop.

Mr. Lynch accompanied Capt. McKen-
_io and T. W. Patterson to Sidney yesterday whore he examined terminal
facilities for the Liverpool-Sydney
ferry. When seen last night Mr.
Lynch disclaimed representing any
one but himself, although he admitted
that ho lias examined the new Vancouver coal property and wculd see
the Crow's Nest coal lands on the
way back to New York. Britisli.Co-
lumhia, he says, is marvellous in resources. Mr. Lynch added that he diit
not see why tho owners of the islam!
coal mines did not push their product
and crowd Washington state coal out
of the market in San Francisco where
liritish Columbia coal is regarded as
very much superior to the Washington
product. Lynch is credited with a
desire to secure holdings in the coal
lands controlled by the Dunemuirs.

American   Company   Did Not   Secure
Big Hritish Contract Unfairly.
London. April 13.���The London

whicli has received the contract to install the telephone apparatus for the
Hritish government, in an interview-
with a representative of the Associated Press today regarding the press allegations that the corporation is receiving half of the ��3,000,000 appropriated by the parliament without
fair competition or giving a chance
to the British firms, said: "Our contract docs not reach anything likei.1,-
500,000. The cables we are installing
were mado by Britisli labor at our
works at Woolwich. Only materials
whicli aro absolutely unsecurable are
being imported from America. Tho
British postofiice authorities and all
persons connected with telephonic
construction in Great Britain and on
the continent admit that these are far
ahead of any made on this side. The
greater part of the appropriation of
��3,000.000 will be spent in breaking

The Nelson Miner
ALHANI.
The visit to Nelson tomorrow evening of Mme. Albani is an event
worthy of more than passing reference. A special place in the regard
of all Canadians is kept for the distinguished daughter of the Dominion,
whose career has been an unbroken
series of artistic triumphs in Italy,
France, Germany,Russia and England,
on this continent and. in fact, in
every land. Canadians take great pnde
in her as a groat singer and they take
an added pride in her heoauso she
is, like the good Queen who held her
as a close friend, a good woman. Ab
Mine. Albani's countrymen we all feel
that she some how lollects upon us all
somewhat of the honor and fame
which she has won for herself in such
abundant measure. Her name like
Adelina I'alti's is a household won!
among the world's lovers of music,
and it is her special glory to have
widened their nuuibors by disclosing
the bounty and the compelling power
of pathos that can be drawn from
Simple homely ballads that speak to
the hearts of all. Great as have boon
hor lyric triumphs upon the operatic
stage, and unqualified as her success
as the first of oratorio singers in England, it is the notes of her liquid voice
in the plain songs which people love
that will linger longest in the hearts
of the many thousands who have heard
hor sing. If the unanimous praise of
the press of Canada is any criterion,
tho people of Nelson will tomorrow
evening be given an opportunity to
listen to the greatest array of vocal
and Instrumental artistes ever brought
to Canada. Madame Albani has surrounded herself with eminent support
whose efforts everywhere on this tour
have met with spontaneous appreciation at the hands of crowded and, in
places, overwhelming, audiences.
Every member of the company is an
artiste of renown. The members were
all commanded at different times to
appear before the late Queen Victoria.
M. Tivadar Nachez has five decorations from different European courts.
Madame Albani's Victorian Order is
the highest distinction. Miss Muriel
Foster i'lso boasts a gift from the late
Queen, so that they may be lightly
termed a royal court concert patty.
Olympian in its uh!uj, At a figure he
appeals to foreigner! fai more than to
his countrymen, They sec the very
embodiment of England and her
genius in the slow-moving, mordant,
proud, undauutahlo noble. Thoy may
outwit him with dexterous subtleties
today, and only earn calm contempt
and the due threaten ing of the substantial power be wields, lie plays
with the Hritish people as a boar
keeper does with his caged captive.
Wo growl anil resent his prods,and often wish he woie as young as ho once
was; but, oil the whole, ho looks well
after ns, exhibits us to the world,
keeps us well fed and wll permit no
one to harm us,. He does not particularly care for us. but we esteem him,
and wish no one loss masterful in his
place.''    	
THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC.
Hon Geo. 13. Foster has again taken
tho platform in Eastern Camilla as an
advocate of temperance. While not
absolutely oommitting himself to an
endorsatlon of the Gothenburg system
of nationalization ho commends it to
the careful consideration of Canadians. The Montreal Witness, a strenuous adovcate of piohlbition, goes
even further and hails uationali/.ation
as a stop towaids its goal, lloth those
expressions indicate a decided advance
from the ground taken by many prohibitionists���that the government
should not recognize tho trallic even
to the extent of controlling its licenses. The new position is the more
reasonable one. It will attract support from many qua iters whence prohibition could look for nothing but
opposition. The vast majority of the
people of Canada will give their count
enanee to any line of action designed
to minimise the evil effects of the
trallic which at the same time avoids
the danger of interference with per
sonal liberty. That nationalization
would be such a policy is of course
open to question, but arguments in
support of it which will appeal to
many as reasonable can bo   advanced.
CURRENT COMMENT
LORD SALISBURY.
There can be but little doubt that
the moment is all but come when Lord
Salisbury's long-threatened retirement
from public life is finally imminent,
but whatever the future may have in
store foi him and his party he may
now rellect witli pride that bo has
been Prime Minister of Great Britain
for a longer period of time than any
statesman since the Earl of Liverpool's administration of nearly fifteen
years came to an end in 1827. The
memory of Mr. Gladstone's long influence and towering personality may
render this statement suspect at first
glance; but Mr. Gladstone's
tciiuie of oflice by actual arithmetic lasted in all only twelve years
aud one hundred and forty-one days,
a record which has been passed by
Lord Salisbury quite recently. The
fact that Mr. Gladstone's leadership
was spread over twenty-six years and
that his place in the very front rank
of his party lasted in all for close on
half a century,whereas Lord.Salisbury
first became prime minister loss than
sixteen years ago, no doubt accounts
for the surprise that most have felt on
learning that, tho official careers of
the two groat men would seem to have
approximated so closely in   duration.
To turn to older history for a basis
of comparison: In the eighteenth
century Sir Robert Walpole was prime
rninistei from 17.1 to 1742 at a stretch,
and had been at tho head of the government for two years on a previous
occasion. William Pitt was prime
minister fiom 1T83 to 1801, and again
from 1804 to 1806. Lord North had
twelve years, from 1770 to 1782. At
the other end of the'scale. Canning
was prime minister for only 134 days,
and was followed by five otheis from
1827 to 1H.I6, who only averaged about
sixteen months oflice apiece.
The occasion of the breaking of the
Gludstonian record is made the subject
of passing references to Lord Salisbury bv the better class of journalists
one of whom puts the familiar facts
of the case in a quotable paragraph.
He writes iu The London Outlook:
"Lord .Salisbury has passed the record established by Mr. Gladstone for
length of service as first minister since
the passing of the reform bill. Mr.
Gladstone 'reigned' for 4,408 days;
Lord Salisbury has ruled for 4,524
days. The only man of their time
who can compete with them in renown
aud universal reputation is Bismarck.
If wo wore to seek to reckon by
quality of service rather than length
of days as between Lord Salisbury
and Gladstone, we should broach a
subject of the widest contrasts possible. Yet no one will deny that for
strcnuousness and excitement the
Gladstone period stands pie-eminent.
Lord Salisbury's control of  affairs is
THE YMIR REPORT.
* The directors of the Ymir Gold
Minos have issued to their shareholders a report,which is interesting, both
from the point of view of the future
outlook, and the result of ��� the past
twelve months' operations, as well as
being probably the most comprehensive yet issued by any English mining
company operating in Canada, both
from the amount of detailed information contained therein, and the excellence of the illustrations and plans.
Since the last report was issued, the
capacity of tlie mill has been doubled,
and many other additions have been
made, the entire cost of which has
been defrayed out of profits. After
writing off sundry Bums for depreciation, development, repairs, and other
charges, the net profit was shown to
be ��30,000, which added to the sum
brought forward, amounted to ��40,000
to the.credit of profit and loss. The
comprehensive report by Mr. S. S.
Fowler, the company's engineer, has
been included in the" report, in which
we are informed that the vein above
No. 3 level has proved to bo wider
than he had originally calculated,
thus increasing the ore reserves,which
above that level now stand at 1)7,000
tons, and between the Nob. 3 and 5
levels is estimated at 03,000 tons.
This, at the rato of last year's con
sumption, is sufficient to supply the
mill for more than four years to come
Referring to the increased mineral
tax, Mr. Fowler pointed out that
though nominally 2 per cent., it actually amounts to about 3}[, per cent, on
tbe company's profits, before allowing
anything for depreciation or London
expenses, and another drawback to
which he refers is the increased smelting charge whicli will lessen the returns to the company by ��2,000 per
annum. On the other'hand, the experimental cyanide plant has, we learn,
proved satisfactory, and the saving
effected under this heading may counterbalance the drawbacks just referred to.
On comparing the cost  of   ore   pro-
dW'tiou ami treatment last year with
thnt for 1800, tho advantage lien, if
anything, with the previous year, but
| that is explained, and it is pointed
out that the operating expenses have
boon practically the same. Of course
while the mill was bei-g enlarged, a
good deal of extra expense and disturbance was caused,which should enable a substantial reduction to be
made ihis yoar In these items, and
wo look forward to the entire cost, in-
eluding smelting and freight iu the
future not exceeding $3!.; per ton.
The substantial amount of tho present
ore reserves is sufficient to remove all
cause for uneasiness, and when the
adit whioh is being driven to meet the
vein at the 1,000 foot level haB exposed the oie body,the director! will then
probably havo to consider the advisability of still further adding to tho
milling capacity. The recent interim
dividend of 5 pei cent, is referred to,
but though no comment is made in
the report,at the forthcoming meet ing
we anticipate that the board will be
able to announce that while present
conditions are maintained a similar
distribution will be made ovory
quarter, so that a minimum yield of
2(1 per cent, will accrue to the shareholders.���li. 0, Review (London).

Yes, August Flower still has the lar
geHt sale of any medicine in the. civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Bilious
ness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom'heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa!,ure. etc,
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that is all they

HAD TO DIG UP-
The census commissioners for tho

here yesterday as stated in The Miner, Thomas Parker, of Rossland, presiding. Notes were compared regarding the progress of the work and the
concensus of opinion was that the
enumeration was proceeding as rapidly
as could be expected. The commissioners have met with a little difficulty on one score. The government was
to have supplied funds in advance for
enumerators working in the rural dis
tricts whaie their dally expensesrun
into a considerable" amount. The
funds have not been forthcoming,
however, and the commissioners have
been compelled to personally dig up
enough money to keep their men
