Ar. h meeting of tne Executive, ot'the
Provincial Milling Association held recently it wag d.cided to urge the Lical
Organizations to carry out the Idea of
the Dominion (iov.-nuient as outlined
above.
Copper has tieen to 14% cents. This
price will give the Audeison Lake copper poperties a show,
At the request of a corumitte of the
Provincial Mining Association Premiir
Prior has paoiuised to place the sum i f
$1,250 n lhe estimates as a contribution
towards publishing a full report of the
proceedings of the ueceut convention.
Tne condition of the metal market is
most encouraging at present, and sliaiee
in B.C mines are advancing in value on
the London stock exchange. It is pri -
dieted that further advances in the
price of B.C. stocks will soon be made.

were and whither the gold went.
■ :   ■      ■• •
Perhaps Rhodesia was the ancient
land of Ophir, the land of the mysterious "'King .Solomons liiinef,"
but the theory is strongly combaled
by some in. estimators. The am lent
gold wor! ings are the basis of modem workings. For etery len square
rui'cs of RhodcFia there was one ancient mine, t'l'at is, there r.r. 75.000
oil holes, whi h means that a stupendous, wealth was dug out of th.
euith befoie the days of Cecil
Rhodes. Muth of this wealth mist
havo gone to the north and east' i
was probably wrought i'.to tie
crown of the Queen i f Sheba aud (bled the cutlers oi Solomon.

The ancient smelting fu.rna.ces are
sti'l easy to ie^ogni.:e. They are sunk
into tho lloor. Thc furnace blow] i. es
are made of the finest g' at ite-pow<~er
cement, and the no*' ba of the blowpipes are catered with s 1 s'ns of
gold. Ihs linings of the holes are
covered with s. eels of fold. W'en
the first lining became wors by tho
heat, a f est. I,ning Of cement of an
excellent quality, which hus outlasted time, wus smeared uround ou top
of the old lining. Ore can take an

Apparently the ancients wasted
gold lavishly. Gold has I .<". n found
in large quantities in the form of
pellets ns large as hue! shit in the
vicinity of tie furnaces, and ul o
thrown away on the de*bn's heaps
outside of the old » tildings.
The tools of the ancient Workers
which hat e so far been discovered include a small soaps'tono hamiror and
burnishing -tones of water worn

It is expected that the now Archbishop of Canterbury will bo enthroned very soon now. This ceremony,
though not, of course, approaching a
coronation, is attended with a good
deal of pomp. In the enily half of
the centurv the ceremony was | er-
formed with comparative simplicity,
and often with some difficulty. Archbishop Hawley, who was promoted
to the See of Canterbury in the
height of the Reform agitation, wns
stoned out of the city, and it is only
in the latter half of the century that
the Archbishops have hud any popularity in their own cathedral . city.
With the growth of more ornate services it has become the practice to
carry out the enthroni'-atlon of the
Archbishop with considerable splen*
dor. and though Dr. Temple wns not
himself a man fond of show, his e'e-
vatio- to the cathedral throne was
conducted in the most imposing manner. The new Archbishop will be enthroned with probably a more splendid and impressive ceremonial than
his  predecessors.

T!ie gieat game t&mAy lucks two
mostil.c s no lordly buiialo and the
wild pi. eon. Forty years ago the
buiialo roamed the Viusturn i>raiiits
by mo i ns of thousantis, while tie
flights of olue rocs ii e..,ily darkened lhe sun. To-day there is not a
specimen of citi.e in tl.e country out-
sicie of a -.oo—except, as to buiialo,
thu hed at liuinl. They have been
wiped irom the face of the earth. No
word but "ciime" can be applied to
the extermination of the buiialo by
white "sportsmen." At the same
time, though nothing can compensate for their loss, the wholesale destruction of one great species has
served as the most powerful argument for the preservation of others.
This is the precedent cited when a
close season is desired for any bird
or Least. Some years ago it. was
found imperative to more rigorously
protect the beer in Canada. The
shooting of moose was prohibited altogether for a time, and the open
season for cariboo, elk, and red deer
was limited to a very few days. The
desired end was achieved and the
deer increased in a most gratifying
manner.
How Wolves Increased.
Wolves also multiplied in the same
proportion; according to the laws of
nature; and now they are more numerous thnn for many years, Wolves
in their pleasant home associations
with their prey occupy very much tho
same position as railway rates in relation to freight. A popular working motto for both seems to be "All
the Traffic Will Hour." The deer are
ea*°t for tho somewhat strenuous role
of traffic. It might appear at first
sight, (hut when the doer are no longer    so    jealously preserved and thc
mortality is higher among .__, the
wolves tvi.l de.rea.o accordingly.
This i.s not so, for it must be borne
in mind thut wolf is far more tenacious of life than a deer, and is one
of the most difficult of animate to
hunt. Besides, a timber wolf, when
reinforced by his immediate family
and a few neighbors, is something of
a hunter bin.self. He is not only a
mi ancc, but a menace to all game,
cattle, and even to man himself.
i*5H» a Head lor Wolves.
Ontario re.ill es this fact, and there
is a bounty of $10 for the head of
one of the e animals, six dollars of
whi h is i>i id by the county where
the animal i; I i led, und lour dol-
Liis by the province. Quebic. pays
no bounty, though thc wolves Here
are much more numerous. Premier
Parent, it is s.nl, wishes to place a
law on the statute books offering a
reward to encot rage their extermin-
niin, and the Came Protective Association appointed a committee to
writ on him and urge the matter.
The reason why the Premier of Quebec needs bis hands strengthened is a
most surpiising one. His eollengucsi
are opposed to a bounty because
there are so many wolves that it
would amount to a large .sum. That
is t:> s y. wolves are su ravenous
that they arc almost ind-spensable.
Tl is state of aftairs, satisfactory as
it may le to some of Mr. Parent's
colleagues. cannot continue much
longev, for the depredations of the
dreaded grey wolf are becoming intolerable.
A i'os'.ly Experiment.
Lumbermen have been attacked,
and thousands of dollars worth of
lice stock des royerl. A bounty will
not make farmers any more anxious
to save their property from the wolf,
but will have the effict of encouraging hunters to address (heir professional attentions to him. In the
meantime the farmers hate been expo imc" ling with new methods for
extermi laiing these brutes. A settler on the tipper Mattawa, having
heard that if a rat. is caught, a bell
tied to his neck, and he is then turned loose again, he will strike such
terror to the hearts of his colleagues
that they will desert the bouse, de>
ci.'ed to try tho plan with wolves.
He secured a wolf, "belled" him, and
turned him loose. Then his lambs
began to disappear with alarming
frequency, and Investigation showed
that they had fallen victims to a
wolf. The owner watched and waited and finally tiscovered that the
wolf he had given his liberty used
the bell as a decoy for sheep, and
that they, accustomed to tbe sound,
and associaling it with one of tlnir
kind, actually pursued the wolf into
the woods, with what painful results
may be readily imagined.
Tlie Wolf m. a Hero.
The boldness of the wolves in packs
may bo their undoing, for then they
can be traced more readily, though
this is rather a dangerous undertaking. They expose themselves openly,
and will even stand gun lire. Cunning comes with adver. ity'; the fewer
wolves the greater intelligence. For
this reason it will be almost impossible "to completely exterminate
them, and, indeed, we do not thirst
for the last, drop of blood of the
last timber wolf. Alone and famishing, with the hand of etery nan
against him. huiiled by clogs, his
path beset with (raps, and his h;ir
with  pitfalls,  the Wolf will  still    do
battle.     'I here i- n  Stieuk <f tho hero

Origin «f Hobann's < lioloe.
Mr. ITarpor tells us all thore is to
be told about 'ihomas Hobson, the
famoi s earlier between London and
Cambtitlge, who died in 1631. It
was from him that the proverb of
"Hob-on's choice," arose, meaning,
of cours?, a choice whi h is nu
choice. "The saying arose from the
livery stable bu.iticss carried on by
Hobson at Cambridge, in addition to
his carrying trade. Tie is, indeed,
said to lime been the first who
made a business of letting out saddle horses. His practice, Invariably
followed, was to refuse to allow any
hoi.e ii his stable to be ta4~en out
of i s proper turn. "That or none
was his' unfailing formula, when the
Cambridge students, eager to pick
and choose, would have selected their
own fancy in hotseflcsh. Every customer wus served alike, wilhout favor."—London Telegraph.

We could expel the Acat'iars again,
the abstract Acadians, but we would
take abundant care that an exception
was made in the case of Evangeline
and Gabriel. For of that crowd ol
sensitive, pulsating life hurtled tu
the ships these two stand out as the
only human I e ngs Thc expulsion
of the Acadians hus been justified by
"Mr. Parkumn, and many a tender
and troubled conscience will Ides 1 Mm
for the soothing peace he has
brought. The expulsion was all
right. It was just the thing. Dut
that refers only to Acadians in the
abstract. .So long as our language
is spoken Evanpclino and Gabriel
..ill be like tho ghost of Banquo at
the feust.
