whatever,    In   speaking of the  Seattle club, which  has    been at   a great
expense in  the maintenance    of    its
team,    Mr.  Welsh  said  that  he  felt
very sorry indeed that they would be
unable to play  this  season, owing to
the fact that they did not have a sufficiently  strong team,  as a  result of
which  they  were  unable  to  make  a
financial success of the venture.  The
support   on  the  other    side  was  not
si long enough  to  warrant    placing a

it was with a feeling of deepest regret
that he was    compelled  to announce
the withdrawal or ihe Seattle boys.

Conra i had i bard time getting anyone Interested, Many a Seattle man
had been nipped in Alaska mining
schemes, md toi weeks his proposition went begging. He finally Becured
ll. R. CllBe to acl as his attorney.
Through tbe efforts of Mr, Cllse, Andrew Chllberg, J. F, Une, E. it. Hui-
terworth, W. G. Norrls and others
were induced to advance barely
enough money to tie the claims up In
opi ions, although ihc syndicate thus
formed obligated themselves to even-
tually  buy the property outright for
a paltrj $160,	
The tiisi move the syndicate made
i was to close with the St. Louis Tramway company, and late last summer
j the first tramway on the Windy Arm
was completed  at a cost of $76,000.
! Contracts have since been let for two
additional trams. Much ore was last
year  sent down  to Tacoma  smeltei
j and  $75 per ton was the poorest re-
I turn received.
It was al about this time that the ll
, tention  of Wm. MacKenzie was call-
! ed to the property, an.l he sent an
engineer to the Windy Arm for the
purpose of investigating the situation.
Upon the report of llis engineer Mr.
.MacKenzie at once opened negotiations with Mr. Clisc. and as a consequence that gentleman went to Toronto aboul two weeks ago, and yesterday the deal was closed.
It Is understood that the local syndicate Mr. Clise formed In behalf of
Mr. Conrad was compelled to put up
.less tluin $50,000 for options.
The mines are situated directly
across the Windy Arm from the presenl tracks of the White Pass Yukon
railroad, and that Institution has
the surveys for a branch line to the
Conrad property completed and wlll
this spring start work on the extern

| he refused  to discuss the matter   at

tersied ln the sale of the minces were
not so backward and freely sluted
thai the deal had been closed, that
they had received their proportionate
j share of thc funds, and that needless
to add they were all more than satisfied.

opinion s'J(H1jd n()l be permitted.
In ret MTa jor y^ impairment of the

New   York will receive practically no-
thi\K for the 242,000 horsepower auth-
[</ri7ed on that side and the Queen Victoria  Niagara Falls Park will receive
an .annual    rental  of  $270,000  or  an
average of 65  cents per  horsepower
for 415,000 horsepower authorized on
the  Canadian side.  These  figures do
not Include the 8,000 horsepower being  developed  by  the  electrical  railway nor the power developed by the

Charters have been granted to corporations which propose to divert additional amounts in Quantities not now
limited. The sums of money invested
or being invested In the works now
In operation or under const ruction
and in the industries dependent upon
them amounl to many millions of dollars.
It is not probably expedient to attempt, the withdrawal of the rights
thus utilized. Tbe commercial value
of the water power at Niagara Falls
is very greal. but if compared with
values set aside by wealthy communities elsewhere for park purposes, this
value is not, too great to be devoted
to similar purposes. The place is
visited annually by about sun.mill people.
If the falls are to be preserved, ii
must be by mutual agreement between the two countries. As a step in
that direction we recommend that
legislation be enacted which shall
contain the following provisions:
The secretary of war to be authorized to grant permits for the diversion
of 28,500 cubic feet per second and no
more, from the waters naturally tributary to Xiiigara Falls distributed as
follows: Niagara Falls Hydraulic
Power & Manufacturing companw, ]
9,500; Niagara Falls Power company,
S.600; Erie Canal or its tenants (in
addition to lock service), 400; Chicago
Drainage Canal, 10,000. All other diversions of water which is naturally
tributary to Niagara Falls to he prohibited, except such as may be re-
quired for domestic use or for the service of locks in navigation canals,
suitable penalties for violation of tbe
law to he prescribed.
The foregoing prohibition to remain
in force two years and then to become1
the permanent law of the land If in
the meantime the Canadian government shall have enacted legislation
prohibiting ihe diversion of water
which is naturally tributary to Nl-
agara falls in excess of 86,000 cubic
leet  per  second,     not     Including  the
amounts required tor domestic use or.
for the service of lochs in  navigation
i unals.
ii i.s assumed, however, that an
understanding cm this subject would
be reached. The object of such legislation would be to put a stop to the
further depletion of the falls and at
the same time inflict the least pos-'

The experiments which have led to
these results have been in progress
for years, having been begun in 1901,
when Dr. Carrel was a member of the
faculty of the University of Lyons in

The marvelous surgical operations

Some of the most remarkable ex-

the heart of a clog to another pari of

The kidney of a dog was placed ln
