carrying on development ou a business basis.
;,(rhe new company is capitalized .'or
1100,000 in $1 shares, and one share of
the new stock will be given for ten of
tne old. The new stock is assessiblu
up to r. cents and a one cent assessment is being made to supply working capital.
Within the past year the stock of
the St. Keverne has been largely a.-
. -orbed by Montreal capitalists and it
Is believed that the control of the
company is in the hands of parties
closely identified with the Payne.
John A. Finch is the principal western stockholder.
Operations are to be commenced in
tbe immediate future and it is reported that Foreman Dunn is to take
efUt'ge ot the work. At the time the
property was closed down last summer
the report was current that a good
show I (ig of clean ore had been opened
up, and it is highly probable that the
1 St. Keverne will be among the shippers before thc summer is over.
Robert Barman, of Greenwood, reports the Tecumseh and Tuscumby
claims in the Windermere district, on
McDonald . creek, have been sold to
taste, n parties for .18,000, and that
aetfv. development work will begin
���9;foonae arrangements for machinery
can be made.
; The two elain.1, for which the above
deal has been made, are reported by
Mr. Harmon to be splendid prospects.
Not much development work has
been done ou either of them, but the
price paid'for the prospects shows the
splendid showings tbat must bave been
made, Tbey are extensions of tbe
'pell known Iron Cap mine and are
' supposed to have the same ledge,

The ore avorages from 87.1 to 8H0
net and the vuhics aro maintained at
every level, all the workings except
a sou foot crosscut being in ore. The
vein is on tho property for 2000 feet.
No. 0 tunnel Is being driven north,
and when it strikes the Lasl Chance,
It will have a depth of 1,100 feet.
This tunnel is now 700 feet, which includes 200 feet of crosscut.

THEY FEAR
THE YANKS
The mines in McOuigan basin have
been working for some time and a
number of the promising prospects
will be opened up shortly. These properties will not be affected by the refinery question at the present time,
as thoy are only doing development
work. Some OHO tons of ore were
shipped in the last four months.
The Rambler-Cariboo has a smelter
contract, which enables the mine to
ship steadily. Sume 75 to 100 men are
employed underground. Rich finds
of ore have been encountered in the
lower tunnel and a 100-foot winze
will be started from this point.
The Red Fox aro working a small
stall of men and at present on tbe
Antoine vein which crosses the property.
The Nolio, a group of fourteen
claims, is managed by J. C. Ryan.
Last week, a most important strike
on this mine was made, a showing of
10 inches of galena was encountered in
the lower level at a depth of, 300
feet, and woik iu still continued In
these workings. The longest tnnne'
has now reached 1,3S0 feet in length
and is a complete passage through
thc top cf the mountain
Work is progressing on the Antoine,
where a long crosscut tunnel is being
driven to tap thc vein at depth.

(SPECIAL TO THE lMlNIi.Il.)
Victoria, B.C., May 20.���Plans have
been hied in the department of the
chief commissioner of lands and works
by the C. P. B. for the construction
of a railway as part of the Coast-Kootenay system, from a point on tbe
coast as far as Hope mountains. The
approximate distance Is one hundred
miles. Geo. McL. Brown, executive
officer of the C P. R., is in the city
in connection with the proposal.
The government is in communication with the different railways whioh
will use tl.e Now Westminster
bridge, when completed, ascertaining
how much they are willing to puy
for the privilege. As soon al) this is
ascertained tendeis will be called fir
construction.

Mr. Harmau says that the section is
k
quite lively and that there have been
napre small deals carried out in that
district than there have been befoie
for years. Last month the Red Line
was bond.d at d last week the Martin
and Trfi.y group were also bonded,
and the Black Hill group is now under option to London parties.
Ihere Is no doubt but that the Won-
derfjrtJwas rightly named. Work under Mr. Warneer is showing it as a
Btubburn fact. The opinion of many
was "that E. J. Field in working it
somo three years ago knew more about
. the meirts of the property than he
disclosed to the public���in short, it
was the impression of many ho knew
it was a fyig property, but kept the
facta from the owners with the hope
of .tpijjng it himself.
However, the facts are that in Mr.
Warner's operations of a couple of
weeks .he has uncovered three ledges,
in eaoh of which there are large bod-
lee of ore, the uncoveringa varying
from 20 to 50 feet In length.
In one of the ledges the ore uncovered the timberings that Field put in
nnd covajed.up again, until it might
suit his purpose.
{File ledge, are from three to eight
feet in j width, and all carry ore
througn.ut," scams of clean ore and
the remainder of the ledge matter
l~~ta{*'.onc.ntr-ting ore, both of Very
high value, one body being a rich carbonate.
Thomas McOuigan, manager and
superintendent of the' American Boy,
says that owing to an influx of surface water work had *o be discontinued In some places in the mine, but
ii still in progress In levels Nos. 3,
4, and 6, whioh are being continued.
Sevoral upraisings are being made to
ommiect t|he levels and provide stuping ground. Great bodies of ore
are being blocked out. The total
work, >in tu,lin-lB, crot scuts, upraises,
eto. ,1s about 8,000 feet, whioh entitles
the property to  the   claim   of   being
Thc Kaslo Smelter, Limited, have
made the first payment on their site
across the bay from Kaslo. The payment, which was ten per cent, of the
purchase price, amounted to 8400 and
was paid in the Bank of British North
America on the 7th instant. This
looks as though the company; meant
business. Mr. Jeffrey, who has the
option, is still working on it and
claims he has the necessary money in
sight, and expects to see the building
commence in a very short time,

In an interview with a Miner reporter J, .1. Fleutot, manager of the
United Gold Fields of U. C, Ltd.,
.tilted that development at tho May
and Jennie was progressing. Asked
about the article in The Tiibune,
Mr. tleutot said that such reports
generally do more harm than good,
and begged to contradict the prospector's story of a forty foot ledge in the
Gold Bell tunnel with ore that went
8100 per ton. He stated that nobody
visited said tunnel in the day time,
though there was a night visitor who
got away with some hammers and

SESSIONAL    INDEMNITY.
The   Premier   Says   Conditions   Havo
Changed   in   28 Years.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, May 20.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier in moving a resolution inci easing
the sessional indemnity of members
of parliament and senators from 81,-
000 to 81,500, said he ventured to hope
it would commend itself not only to
members of the houre but'to the people, to whom they were responsible.
The premier pointed out the conditions that prevailed 28 years ago,
when tho indemnity was fixed at 81.-
000. Twenty-eight years ago $1,001)
was considered a fair indemnity. It
was not unfair under present conditions to make the indemnity $1,500.
The premier said that in the United
States members of congress received
$5,000 per session, and in the new
Australian commonwealth, where
conditions are similar to those in Canada, the indemnity was $2,ooo. With
the exception of five or six, all the
member, of the house had to work for
their livelihood.
Borde.i, leader of the opposition,
spoke favoring the general idea of the
resolution, and the motion was agreed
to.
When the house met this morning,
the premier announced that the Crow's
Nest Southern railway bill, which
stands for a third reading, was dropp
ed. This bill was fur a railway from
the Crow's Nest coal fields to connect
with American roads to the soutli.
Jabel Robinson has given notice
of a resolution to ask the imperial
government to amend the British
North America Act to reduce representation in tho commons by one half,
and if not to entirely abolish the
senate to reduce it to one half, to]; be
elected by the people, electoral districts to be composed of 50,000 and
county boundaries as far is rossiblo
respected. There Is still a batch of
supplemontaries to put through, antl
it is very doubtful if prorogation can
be reached on Thursday.
Senator Doschene was introduced in

Winnipeg, May 20.���An Edmonton
despatch reports the accidental shooting of Louis Fontaine, 1). L. .., of

knee, but it is hoped the limb will be
saved.
PROVINCIAL SYNOD.
(SPECIAL. TO THE MINER.)
Montreal, May 20.���The provincial
synod of the American church In Canada, including all of older Canada, is
summoned by Archbishop Bond tu
meet in triennial oession here on Sep.
���ember 11.
Ystorday morning Frank McLeod
w.is as well ns he over was in his
life, at 9 o'clock, and at 0.40 he had
verified the solemn saying that "in
the midst of life we are in death."
At 10 o"clock word was received
that he had been killed by being run
over by the Spokane train. About that
time tho engine of the Spokane train
returned to town conveying the lifeless body of McLeod, who had both
legs cut off and though picked up
alive, died before medical aid could
bo prociucd. Indeed, had it been
available it coulil have been of no
avail, as the deceased, after trying in
vain to speak, expired in about fifteen 'rinutes after the accident oc
enrred. lie was last soon about half
past eight, by Frank Tamblyn, who
met. him near Thorpe's soda water
factory, and was then going in the di-
rjction of McDonald's garden, where
he has heen spending much of his
spare time, since retiring from business ns a blacksmith about six weeks
ago.
The acident hap; sued about a hundred yards east of Anderson creek
and about a quarter of a mile beyond
the ship yard. So far as the facts
can bo gleaned from an examination
of the spot where the accident occurred,and the evidence of those who were
first on the spot, the deceased appears
to have been sleeping on the sloping
bank alongside of tbe track, which
at that particular spot is only about
two feet from the right of way.
The Spokane train during tbe time
since the fiocd of last week, has been
unable to turn at the Five Mile Point,
as was its custom,and yesterday backed the train up to that point. The
conductor, noticing the deceased lying
near the track, shouted to him to
clear the track, but not until the train
was quite up to where he waa lying.
Deceased did not appear to realise
that anything was wrong, when he
apparently lost his presence of mind,
and instead of jumping up the ban!;,
he appears to have gone in thc opposite direction. He was caught in the
wheel of the car and carried a distance of about twenty yards before
tho train could be brought (o a standstill. It was soon apparent that he
was fatally injured, having one of
his legs out through just above tbe
knee, and the other,, just below. As
e was not quite dead his body was
laid on a fiat car, the engine was uncoupled, aud the mournful cortege,
in charge of Engineer Dun Fleming
returned to town. The coroner, Dr.
Arthur, was communicated with, and
after examining the body, it was
carried into the Hudson's Bay warehouse, awaiting the arrival of his
brothers, wbo were immediately communicated with. One brother lives at
Kaslo nnd arrived by the 0,80 boat.
Another brothor will arrive on tlie
first bout today, while his brother in
San Francisco has wired his inability
to attend. The deceased has two
brothers nnd three sisters in Nova
Scotia, the husband nf one of the latter, Mr. Fraser, being his. roommate,
The deceased waa about 43 years of
age, and unmarried, and was born in
Nova Scotia. About six weeks prior
to tbe time of his death, thc deceased
had disposed of his partnership In
the blacksmith business which he and
Sara Macdonald had on Hall Btreet,
nnd he had In the interval been working around tho Bhop.
He was a member of the L. O. L.
Und a charter member of thc Nelscn
1, 0. 0. F. and was one of its moi-t
pruininent members. In recognition
of his fidelity to the cause of Odd Fellowship, and his hifih standing in the

EX-MINISTER TURNER HERE.
Luoking Into Mining Interests of Var
ious Districts,
non. J. II. Turner, ex-minister
of finance, is in the _ity and is staying at the Phair. A Miner man presented hia card last evening as a representative of The Miner, whereupon
the genial ex-minister, with a twinkle
ir. his eye und a smile at the bystanders, asked if that wns not the
paper in which John Houston was
interested.
Asked as to his opinion of the promised lead bounty, the honorable gentleman remarked that while it was n
good thing as far as it wont, It was
altogether too small. Not, pcrhap.,
too small as the amount pci ton wns
concerned, but in the scope of it, inasmuch as it limited the silver-lead
smelting to about half Us avu'lable
output. As far rs ho could see, it was
a good thing, because It showed a
disposition on the part of the government to iccognize the needs of the
mining industry of the west. What
interested bim tho most, however,
was ai to whom the benefits were to
eo.no, to the Hmelting or mining industry.
Asked as to the results of the late
session of the legislature,ho remaiked
that it had been the hardest one he
had experienced during thc last fifteen yeius. Ilui,lie observed, notwithstanding thc statements of certain
newspapers to the contrary, they had
done a lot. of work, and had passed
over a hundred different bills.
As to the government's railway policy he remarked tbat. it was very
good and would yet bear fruit.
The objoct of his visit to Nelson, he
remarked, wns chiefly one of pleasure,
but during his visit he was looking
into the mining inteiests of the different districts preparatory to assuming his work as agent general in London. He left this morning for Fernie,
where he will acquaint himself with
mimug matters in that district, and
will return to the city in a few days.
He will return to the coast, after
spending a few days in Nelson, and
will then leave for the old country,
where be will in future reside.

CONCERT   LAST NIGHT.
Gavin Spence and Flora Macdonald
Score a Success.
The St. Andrew's society people, especially the native born Scottish por
tion, had a happy time at their concert in the opera house last evening,
and if the programme had contained
a few more selections by the bagpipes, their happiness would have
been complete. But those to the
heather born wero not the only ones
delighted with thc programme as rendered, for whenever Flora Macdonald
appeared upon the stage, or concluded
a selection, she was greeted with
hearty applause, and not of the
stagey, stinted kind, but fiec and sincere. She is a bonnle lassie in her
own personality, and when there is
added to thut her rich, melliflons
voice, which was well adapted to the
rendition of those old Scotch ballads
which are so dear to the Scottish
heart and not despised by those who
are not from tha land of cakes, it is
no wonder that sbo brought down the
honse.
Gavin Spence was at home as an entertainer, and soon mnde his audience
feel at home. He is a good story
teller, one of the best before the public. As a singer too he him a charm
all his own, and the combination Is u
good one and well deserves the bumper house tbey received.
The publisheal programme was not
adhered to, which In no way married
the evening's enjoyment,us was evinced by the fact that every vocal number was encored, and if responded to
would have mado thc programme
practically one long encore.

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver. II. C, May 80.���Those
engaged in the different industries in
British Columbia repeatedly express
themselves as in constant", peril of being driven out of ihe market by ruinous competition] from Paget Sound.
The lumbermen have heen for years
hammering ut the door ot the Canadian government asking them to put a
duty on American lumber to save Canadian markets from the encroaching
American mill owners. Failing in
this they asked that substantial
bonuses be given to encourage shipbuilding in British Coliuuliia, ns all
the lumber ships available weie owned In California and tho freight
rates charged by California shippers
for foreign shinineiits from British
Columbia were impossible, and as
British Columbia had no ships the industry must languish and die. The
shipyards were not established. The
shingle manufacturers also complained that the Americans were iindei-
selling them in their own markets,
because there wan no duty un cedar
shingles, and in nn attempt to handicap the Americans they induced tho
provincial government to puss an act
forbidding the exportation of cedar
logs to the states on the ground thnt
these logs were manufactured into
shingles and sold In Canada in i''.inf-
petition with the British Columbia
product.
Before the royal commi.sioii now
being held to inquire into the curse
of cheap Mongol labor in Britisli Columbia,both the lumbermen and shingle mill men swore that owing to the
fact that lumber and shingles could
bo produced cheaper on Puget Sound
and sold in the same markets as tho
Canadian product at a cheaper price,
that tbey were compelled to engage
Chinese and Japs at from 90 cents to
81.10 a day, when according to the
western scale of wages, white men
could not be got to do the same wor
at less than 81.50 a day, which was
the wage white men doing tbe same
w.irk wero paid on the Sound
Before the same commission salmon-
packers swore that owing to the competition on Puget Sound, where traps
were used and not nets as in British
Columbia, tbat they could [not pay
the price for fish demanded by white
iisheriiiHini lust season, and if they
had not employed Japenese fishermen
to catch fish, and Chinese to pack
them, they would have to yield up
the unequal fight to the Puget Sound
and Alaska salmon packets combine.
The same idea can be followed out
in the S'ocnn country and the Crow's
Nest Pass. For it is here thc cry of
American.competition or American influences affecting the coal and mineral markets are heard.
In the words of the representative
the New York Commeicial who
tried to work up an advertising patronage here, "The boundmy line between British Columbia and tint
United States separates the two countries by a thousand miles in [a com
mcrcial sense."

Expressions of satisfaction over
the announcement respecting lead

Southern Britisli Columbia. Everybody is pleased, and nearly everybody
is looking for great things from their..
We are disposed, however, to sympathise every largely with the opinions
of Mr. Croasdaile and Mr. Campbell,
as published a day or two ago in these
columns. The Government. have
shown a commendable disposition to
help, hut it is a pity they did not
go farther while they wero about it.
Knowing that there is a present capacity to produce twenty-five or thirty
thousand tons annually, it is not
easy to understand why the bounty
is limited to twenty thousand. If
this limit is to extend to the second,
third, and subsequent years, however,
It will not be so bad, although it is
iu the beginning of new industries
that the pinch is most felt. But if

this contest is fighting for the rights

the general public interest is prejudiced by it. In this particular case a
Canadian enterprise is threatened,
and with it the Interests of our two
principal Coast cities. Tbe war

on that account, and there was the
greater need why every public influence that could be exerted should have

11. A rate war and proper and legitimate competition are two very different things.
substantial one. Whether sufficient
for the purpose in view, we
not undertake to say; ":r. Croasdaile
is afraid not, and Mr. Campbell
would seem to entertain a like opinion.
There is less uncertainty as to another
objection. The development of the
lead industry in British Columbia may
not be of as much national importance
Rs that of iron and steel. Those interested in and depending on the latter
will say not, although the entirely
disinterested might not wholly ogree
with them. The difference cannot be
so great, however, as to justify the
very striking discrimination in the
treatment of the two. Steel bounties
are to be continued for a period of
twenty years; those in aid of the lend
industry for only five years. We assume that representations have already been made to friends at Ottawa
to urge the Oovernment to a more
liberal measure of aid, but if they
have not we think no time should be
lost In doing it. The bounty of five
dollars a ton should be made to apply
to more than the first year's production, and ten years would not be too
long a period for tho successful fostering of the enterprise.
However, with no more than the
offer of the tloverninent as published
In our last issue, wc are encouraged
to hope that n new era has opened for
the lead industry of this Province.
There may he struggling at first, but
In the end we shall have our own refining, and for the first time experience the satisfaction and the practical
benefit of being independent of for
eign manipulation. That is a comforting prospect to look 'inward to. But
It Is not all. Now that the Government have recognized the necessity of
fostering the lead Industry, and taken
the first step to its relief, they will
be the more easily persuaded to undertake such a readjustment of duties ns
Will render possible the manufacture
of our leads in all the various formB
of their consumption. The protection
necessary to insure this is but the natural corollary cf the bounty intended to secure the refining of our own
lead. If of public interest or advantage to refine, why not also to manufacture? That will be the next question in connection with the development of our lend industry which the
(Iovernment will be invited to consider, and having regard to what is being done in the mattci of these bounties there is good reason to hope that
the consideration will  be favorable.
against the injustice and oppression
of the deal, and who for two months
gnashed their teeth with rage audible
enough to half girdle the world, are
now wondering what ailed them.
In an Ottawa dispatch to The Spo
liane Review, it is said that the Can
adian Pacific Railway is expected to
take advantage of the lead bounty and
erect a refinery at once. The business of a railway company is to operate a railway. It was to do this that
the Canadian Pacific was chartered
twenty years ago. There are instances of its having stepped aside
and engaged in other enterprises,
much to its own credit and to the
public advantage. But that was be
cause the entei prises were considered
to be necessary and there was no one
else at the time to take hold of them.
It is doubtful, however, if the public will grow hoarse in asking it to
undertake the enterprise of a lead refinery. In matters of transportation
it has this Province pretty well in its
grip; there is no apparent anxiety
that it should also get its paw on the
industry of lend mining. At least,
it will be well to wait and see if other and more legitimate sources are not
prepared to furnish all the capital
required to establish a refinery.
The Miner endorses the suggestion
that a united and earnest effort be
made to secure the coming refinery
for Nelson. There is no other spot in
the country so convenient to the lead
areas; and of the two lead smokers in
the Province,one is here and the other
is but a few miles off, connected by
railway. Nelson is the natural site
for the refinery, and if the timely
and sensible advice of our local contemporary be adopted we cannot for
the life of us see why we should not
get it.

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when, to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which be had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.   Insist on "The Morse Brand."
WAR OF RATES.
Speaking of the Skagway rate war,
The B. C. Trade Budget says: "It
aeems to us that the Vancouver and
Victoria Boards of Trade should have
by resolution strengthened the hands
of the C. P. R. in the gallant fight
they are making against the bleeding
���ystera hitherto In vogue. We marvel at the apathy   of leading  business
Word comes from Kaslo that it is
excited ana hopeful over the news of
the Lead Bounty Hill. It men mi an
active revival of lead mining in all
the region about, and it dissipates
the last lingering doubt that may
have survived respecting the smelter
which was projected a few months
ago. It is said now that the promoters of it, encouraged by tbe prospects
of the lead industry, will proceed at
once with its erection. In this intelligence Sandon is rejoicing us much
as Kaslo, as it hopes to obtain as
much benefit from the smelter as Kaslo itself. The expectations entertained of the Bounty BUI may be too sanguine, but the general feeling of confidence inspired by it is none the less
gratifying.
Five members of the House of Commons voted against the ratification of
the Manitoba railway deal. Not a
wind was raised against It in the Senate. Even the rules were suspended
to expedite the passage of the Bill,
notwithstanding the objection of a
single member would have rendered
this impossible. The noble Seventeen   of   Winnipeg,     who  organized

MACHINISTS' TROUBELS.
Repairs to   the  Oaronne Transferred
Pro/n Seattle to  Victoria.
(IFBCIA-i TO TUBS MIRER.)
Victoria, B.C., May 20.���The troubles over repairs to the Oarronfte.
which the Morans in .cattle were
upable to finish,owing to the machinists strike, are likely to be continued
here, although the vessel wns towed
here Saturday under contract for the
completion of the work hy tho Allbon
Iron Works. The same day tho vessel
was towed over agitators from the
Sound came bIho and urged locnl men
to refuse to touch the vessel ns it was
a scab job. Managor Seabrook of tba
Albion Iron works had a long conference with the men Saturday night
���nd offered to pay them tin. sumo
wage as demanded in Seattle, namely,
.MO a day for eight hours, thus nd-
vanelng pay and reducing hours at
the same time. Most of the men aro

believing thoy are Justified in going
on with the work, refuse tc do so until the order to lift tho boycott is given by the International union author.
itles.
The machinists organized Saturday
afternoon,but being without a charter
������ yet It Is held they are still fice
to work on the job. However, they
��re threatened with blacklisting by
the Seattle men if they do. Under
Union laws it is contended thnt if
Morans have nothing to do with the
contract and the Albion contract Ir
distinct from this after that then the
men ere justified in going to work, as
Seabrook bas conceded all the labor
wen asked for. On the other hand it
is alleged that the Alibon's is merely
��� sub-contract for Morans, to whom
they agree to return It before tho end
of the month. The Victoria men feel
that they ere making a great sacrifice
for the sake of the union, and will
.end a deputation to Seattle tonight
to disk the machinists there to petition the authorities to declare the
strike off, as only by doing so can
tbey secute tbe permanent advance
offered by the Albion people.
BRITANNIA GROUP.
THE OITY
Option on the Rich Copper Lead Has
Again Expired.
VejMOwrer,.'B. C, May 20.���The
option on the Britannia mine expired
this week.. It is not known whether
an extension   will   he granted or not.
. It is said that Boewick and Moreing
tbo   people   who   held  the option for
'1750,000, worked hard up to the last
minute to make the deal go, going as
far  as   to   incorporate  a company in
.������Paris to work the mine. The excuse
given for the apparent failure of the
dalj is the unsettled  condition of the
'London money market. An enormous
"amount of capital is awaiting investment iu   South   Africa,   but there   is
'little for investment elsewhere. In
South Africa the   mineral  ]edge��  arc
'So well defined and in place that the
kmouut of ore and its rich, ess can
.fe figured out on a piece of paper
Before the mine is opened up. This is
tbe   sort of  investment    Englishmen
' like, and this Is the sort of investment capital is waiting for.
Tbe Brittania copper claims are situated on Bowe Sound, 23 miles from
'Vancouver. Vast bodies of ore have
been exposed. It is of low grade.
Three options of over a million dollars bave been thrown up thus far.
Th��y were^held by brokers and not by
legitimate buyers, and these brokers
were unable to place the deal. Senator Clarke, the copper king, was nibbling at tbe property before it was
bonded to Moerinp and Boewick; in
fact he had an option on it, but owing
toe'delayed shipment of sample ore
tlie option expired before a thorough
test could be made. It is learned
since that some of these samples
thought to be little more than schist
ran overdo in gold. It is stated by
owners of the mine here that several
American capitalists have been waiting the result of the London option
before starting negotiations.

" How are you? What time have
you got? By Jove! My watch is
stopped!    It is always stopping."'
"Very sorry, my dear tellow, but'
I'll tell you what to do if you want
to have no more trouble  with your^
watch.    Take it to Patenaude Bros.
They'll do the rest."
We have just added to our watch
repairing department- a first-class
watchmaker, Mr. G. Gendrow, a
graduate of the Canadian Horologe
ical Institute and the maker of a
