About Four Hundred Dollar. Subscribed
on thn First Day—Government Help
Wtinted for a Trail to ltosobery
—Other Minor Item,.
Some of our young mon got together
the other night and organized au association to provide a skating rink for
tho comiug winter, and went actively
to work to carry it out, realizing the
first, day nearly ?100, which they expect to increase another hundred, and
with the assistance of volunteer work,
should Ik* able to provide a first-class
rink. It is not yet decided whether
they will take a slice out of the town-
site or a bight out of the bay.
The next move .talked of is a petition to thi: government for a special
grant to aid in surveying and building a trail from New Denver to Rosebery. The grade is easy, aud if properly surveyed, will form a starter for
a wagon road, which now is a necessity for the cycler, the the carriage or
tht; heavy freight. Lots of willing
hands are ready to second the expected
assistance of the government.

When the C. P. R. was built it was
decided by the Act that that tlie government wouhl havo no control of
rates until the income of the company
had reached 10 per cent per annum
profit upon the actual capital expended in construction of tin-railway.
A variety of interpretations have been
given to this section of the Act. The
subject has lieen under the consideration of the department of justice and
the C. P. R. for some time, and a case
has now beeu refined to the supreme
court to be heard at the present term,
at Ottawa, so as to obtain a decision
as to what this section really means,
and what is to be included in the
words "actually expended inoonst ruction of the railway." and what portion
of railway is included, that is. if it
applies onlv to the original contract

Copper in  Manitoba.
Prof. Pierre Gustav Kendall, a professor of mathematics in Tulane I ni*
veraity, New Orleans, after completing
a Bummer's outing in the wilds of
Northern Manitoba, claims to have
found a ledge of copper that runs -10
per cent and is quite large in extent.
The ledge crops out on the surface,
and while he did not go away up there
on a mining expedition, the three of
them and their guides managed to
sink a small shaft on the vein. The
ledge is located in a most impossible
looking place, and, he says, "while we
have taken the greatest precautions,
legal and otherwise to protct our Bnd,
1 for one woultl be lust as well pleased
if no one discovered our work until we
take another ste inp securing it more
firmly. Next year we will go In with
the idea of working the mine, but, of
course, the product of it   will   imt   lie
available  until  the  railroad   lino   is
pushed much nearer to the ledge than
it is at present,"

Attention   of Mining Men Attracted by
Possibilities of Twelve Mile.
Visits of leasers and mining men to
ihe properties OU Twelvo Mile creek
have become frequent of lato Three
or four parties from Sandon and
Spokane were over the ground last
week, and it is not unlikely that
something tangible may result. It is
the generally accepted theory that the
rich Ottawa mineral stone extends
through that territory to Ten Mile,
and a number of claims along that line
show practically the same vein filling
aud mineral as the Ottawa.
The Kalispell, the first property on
Tenmile to lie worked, is believed to
lie ou this zone, and the locators wh
worked it in 1894 got good returns
from the ore shipped. The smelter
returns gave them over 400 ounces in
silver to the ton. Nothing has been
■Obtained from the work done on the
north side of Ten Mile creek, but
leasers a few years ago did well in the
old workings on the south side. The
original owners who have long since
disposed of their interests, still have
gnat faith in the property, and believe that if it is properly developed
and managed handsome dividends
will result.
On Twelve Mile creek between the
Kalispell and the Ottawa are a number of properties with creditable show
(ngs, prominent among which are the
Colorado, Myrtle group, Happy
Medium group, V. ifc M., Botchelor,
and the May and Sapphire. On the
Colorado a rich strike was made ilur-
,*>g the summer, from which a shipment of wven tons, rutiniug 113
ounces to the ton, was taken out during lieaelopment work. While the returns were not up to the expectation**
of the owners, yet they were good
enough to warrant them in putting up
camps, preparatory to working the
shoot they have in sight, and from
which they expect much better returns.
It is only a short time since the locators of the Myrtle group cut through
their lead in the crosscut tunnel of
over 400 feet driven by them during
the past winter and summer. It was
a big undertaking for prospectors,
but their showing in the workings
from the shaft justified them. They
have encountered some good ore and
the ledge is over GO feet in width.
Big results may be expected at any
time from the drifting now going on
A oouple of men are working on the
May, owned by the Sapphire Gold
Mines Co. of Detroit, but tho balance
a re idle.
There are strong ledges and high-
grade ore on all of the properties men-
Honed,   and   those   who  have  been
studying the lay of the ground and
the charades of the mineral, believe
there will Im* more dividend pavers
along this zone if systematic work is
and not available for stoping. About
40 sacks have been takeu out of the
drift since the ore was eucouuntered
nnd ten inches show in the bottom at
the face. The lease does not expire
until December 31, 1905, and the
holtlers intend to work this shoot
from below if it does not como higher
after further drifting.
Men   at   Chapleau   Mill    Think

The men working at the Chapleau
mill are wondering what has become
of E. Savage, or, to bo more exact,
they want to know what has become
of tlie gold he took with him and in
which tliey claini an interest as producers. Something like $900 in gold
had lieen the result of tho run at the
stamp mill from the stuff gathered
from the mine dump and along the
tramway. The gold was entrusted
to Savage to take to Neisou and
change into legal tender, and he was
to return and give the two men who
did all the work their share. That
was several weeks ago, and he has not
returned yet, nor have they received
any word from or trace of Mr. Savage
since leaving Nelson.
Truly the Chapleau is haviug a
hard time. It has been hampered
ever since it left the hands of the
original owners by all sorts of, to put
it iu mild words, extravagance mismanagement and neglect. Mining
adventurers have plunged it into debt
and other adventurers who are uot
miners have put it deeper in debt.
To make matters worse the bush fires
have destroyed tho mine buildings
and damaged the tramway. Now the
men to whom credit is due for haviug
saved the flume and mill from destruction by fire, aud who gathered the ore
and milled the gold have nothing to
show for their wages, and it is not without reason that they inquire "Where
is Savage and our gold brick?"

Last week 3,900 pounds of ore from
the Blaufield group on tho second

through the Chapleau mill. The trial
run yielded 400 pounds conceutrares
which is worth $100 per ton iu gold
and silver and a gold brick, valued at

of the Blaufield ore, and the owner,
Geo. Bulko, is well satisfied and is
preparing to take out more ore for
treatment at the Chapleau.
Itawliltl.. Trail Uoiug Ahead.
The Black Prince rawhide trail is
now completed as far as the Lily B.
An effort was made to lay out a route
connecting with the Howard Fraction
trail near the first switchback, but
after surveying, this was found impracticable on account of the roughness of the ground. Although the
line has not yet been established, it is
likely that connection will bt! made

basin.         __
Bed Fox Ships.
George Henderson and Fred Johnson came down from the Red Fox
last week, having takeu out another
car of ore and started it on its way to
the smelter. They were unable to
mine in the main workings on account
of water, and gathered this car from
prospect tunnels nearer the surface.
In about ten days they think the
lower tunnel will not be so wet and
theu they intend to return to work.

lt had been understood for a year or
more that Joo Green, son of Farmer
Green, was to marry Hossic Hurlburt,
daughter of on adjoining fanner. There
was not a cloud on the horizon until a
young man named Harry lieeoliinan
came into the neighborhood to sell and
to show the farmers how to set up wire
fencing. Ile secured board nt Hurl*
btlrt's and at once became "struck"
on Bessie, llis admiration naturally
pleased her, and when poople began to
hint that It: was a case of love a new
Idea came into her father's head. Ho
knew Joe to be an honest, hardworking young man, and the question of
money hail never come up. II' be married Pessie he would lake her to his
own house nntl provide for her as well
as a farmer would be expect eil to. It
was only after Ibe wire feme man
came and exhibited his "roll" and talk-
ed of stocks and loads aud bank accounts that Farmer Hurlburt realized
what a good thin:-; it would be to have
a wealthy son-in-law.
Young Bcecbman encouraged the feeling in both fnther and mother, and bla
lavishness in buying presents for Beside would have carried a less sensible
girl off her feet. But when he began
lo court in earnest she began to draw
away, and ,loe Green had nothing to ba
Jealous of. It was soon discovered,
however, that he had a light on band.
The spirit of avarice had been awakened in the souls of the parents, and it
■was not long before they had a good
deal to say to Bessie and something as
well to her lover.
"Look here. Joe," said Farmer Hurlburt, who prided himself on bis plain
{.peaking. "I have said that you were
one of the best young fellers in this
■county, but you ain't just the match for
Bessie. She's smart antl good looking
■nd one of the sort who ought to live
in town and wear silks ant! satins Instead of plodding away on a farm. 1
don't want to hurt your feelings, but I
wish you'd look around for some other

but he's into windmills und drainpipe
and patent farm gales. He's going
into a speculation next week In which
be will clear $::.«XI0 or §4.000 in no time

"l'an'1 be none there. Joe; can't bo

you'll get over it in a week and shtie

Bessie was told at tbe same tlaie
that she would tie expected lo dlscour*
nge joe ami encourage the other one,
laud, though she promptly rebelled, her
tMMOtS put the foot down in a most
•vigorous way. in a manner the Held
was left clear for the wire fence man.
Unfortunately for him. he was a
boaster and a braggart He wits making a few dollars, but could not count
mi anything permanent. Ho realized
that if he got tbe farmer's daughter at
all it would be through thu aid uf
money, and ho began to plan und

lie WM willing that others should
nhnre  la his good luck.    He was so
willing that he would sell greenbacks
for id cents on tho dollar and warrant
thnn to pass current anywhere. It was
the old, old green goods game, and
young Beechman bit.
In turn be became no generous hearted tbnt he was willing to let Farmer
Hurlburt in on the SpoC, Together
tilt j* hoped to raise Jo'JU in cash, and
• ftcr some correspondence with the
liberal minded man in New York it was
decided tbat the Wire fence man should
make a little journey und bring back
ten for one.
The farmer so'd a horse, a cow and
three hogs to make up bis share of tlie
money, and his prospective son-in-law
started for the east. Joe nnd Bessie
hail not quarreled. He had ceased hoeing potatoes to dig holes along the
creek and look for the black stuff that
had made so many men rich. In a
sense they were waiting for things to
turn up.
"Sarah," said tbe farmer to his wife
afler lleechnian had departed, "how
woultl you like to hnve silk dresseu all
the rest of your life'.'"
•'Don't scare a body to death, father," she replied. "I know you and
Harry are going to make millions of
money, anil I'm so nervous that I
break dishes every time I clear the table off."
"Bessie," he continued as be turned
to the daughter, "how would you like
to ride out in n carriage drawn by four
white horses nnd have so many diamonds on that you shone like the
"If .Too finds nn oil well he may buy
me a diamond ring," she quietly answered.
"Don't you keep it up aliout Joe.
Hell never find no oil wells, or, if be
does, it will bo nfter you are married
and living in a palace and litr ing forty
servants to wait on you. Me and your
mother have set out to get you a feller
worth $1.000,000, nnd when you are
receiving tlie president of the United
States ln your own castle you'll be
glad you had sueh a father nnd mother."
A few days Inter Bessie set out to
spend the afternoon with n neighbor.
She had not been gone abovo an hour
when young Beeelininu returned from
his journey. He carried a tin box under his arm, the key thereof in his
pocket and exultation in his heart.
Soon after his arrival the two men
went to the barn lo count over their
"ten to one." Tbe box was unwrapped,
tlie key inserted and the packages tak
en out to be counted. Tben there came
an interval, during which time the
wire fence man and the farmer looked
into each other's pale face and spoke
no word. The "motley" was green It]
color, but that was all. Young Iicech-
man had been done up a* thousand.-"
before bad been done ami lia.'i brought
'jack only blanks.
They were still looking nt each other
and licking their dry lips when Joe and
Bessie drove up to the gate. As she
entered the bouse Joe bitched the
horse aud came out to the barn.
"I just wanted to say," he quietly
observed, "t!:;it four days ngo I found
oil along the creek and that this afler
noon Bessie nnd I Went to Justice Jordan and got married."
In reply Tanner Hurlburt got up and
took young Beechman by the collar
and slammed hlui up against the fan*
ning mill and then Jammed lilm up
against the granary door nnd then walloped blm till over the door and ended
by throwing him outdoors ami sending
a kick after him. Then he turned to
the newly made husband and held out
his hand aud said:
"Joe Green, there's only one feel in
the Hurlburt family, and that's me.
Let's go In and have some cider and
kiss tho bride."

There is a language of umbrellas rn*,
of llowers. Place your umbrella in a
rack, and this will Indicate that it will
change owners. An umbrella carried
over a woman, the man getting nothing
but the drippings of the rain, signifies
courtship. Wben the man Ims the umbrella and the woman the drippings it
indicates marriage. To swing your umbrella over your head signifies "I am
making a nuisance of myself." To carry it tit right angles under your arm
signifies that an eye Is to be lost by
tlie man wlio follows you. Opening an
umbrella quickly, it ls said, will frighten a mad bull. To put a cotton umbrella by the side of a silk one signifies, "Exchange Is no robbery." To
purchase an umbrella means, "I am
not smart, but honest." To lend un
umbrella Indicates, "I am a fool." To
return an umbrella means—well, never
mind whnt it means: nobody ever does
that. To carry nn umbrella jnst high
enough to tear out men's eyes aad
knock off men's hats signifies, "I am
a woman." To press an umbrella on
your friend, saying, "Oh. do toko it: I
had much rather you would thnn not.''
signifies lying. To carry it from home
in the morning moans, "The rain will
clear off."

As   the  Immaculate  young   womnn

became   "wise"   lu   a    moment.     The
stout drummer leaned over to the man
behind him and remarked:
"Bride and groom—hundred to one."
Every one turned to view tho now*

a high nasal voice:

i'or nine years Mr. riirc'll dircotcd
the Christie Job plant,  when in 1897
the concern acqulrod tho Ilrandon
Times, and Mr. Purcoll was given
the editorial charge and control ol
the paper. As au editor his career
duplicated the success he had already
achieved as a job plant manager,
The news of the paper was reorganized, and a higher quality of work
roquired, The paper took a new
lease of life, and speedily became
one of the best paying propositions
in the West. Its editorials wero
usually l'hiin, pithy business talks,
of a kind most impressive and convincing. Outside Winnipeg, the Conservative party In the West had no
moro loyal or able supporter than
the Brandon Times, while, as might
|>o expected Irom Mr. Purcell's record,
the make-UP and appearance of tho
'limes was a model to the whole
western  press.
la April last year Jlr. Purcell acquired au interest in lhe Sun, Brandon's daily newspaper. Under hi?
management the paper has improved
in both its appearance and its news
service. Its advertising patronage
and its circulation have both increased enormously, and its hold on
popular favor is stronger than ever.
Moreover, there Is no sign of stoppage to its growth. Mr. Purcell is
dcvuling the same energy to the upbuilding of the Sun as he did aforetime to that of its competitor, and
with results as apparent. His striking success in Ibis regard having, in
the same town, twice demonstrated
Iiis capacity and ability as director
of every department of a newspaper,
is a record of which any man might
well be proud, and Which has not
been duplicated by any other Journalist  In the West.

It Is not correct to say that salt dissolves iee, since real solution only takes
place when a solid, liquid or gas is
dissolved in a liquid,
The true explanation of the fact that
Ice melts when common salt is added
to it depends upon the simple physical
principle that when a salt ls dissolved
In water heat is absorbed, and its temperature is lowered. When salt and
ice nre mixed together some of the salt
dissolves in tlie small amount of water which is always (present, the temperature is thereby lowered, und a new
freezing point i.s established.
The remainder of tho ice—being at a
temperature higher than this new
freezing point—slowly melts, and more
salt is dissolved until the solution Is
saturated. The temperature can in this
way be lowered to L*_" degrees O, which
is the freezing point of a definite compound of salt and water.
The salts dissolved in sea waters
serve n very important purpose, as it
requires a greater degree of cold to
cause the formation of Ice on tbem
than on fresh water.

tlie state of Ts'i, one of tbe most powerful of the early subdivisions of the
Celestial Empire, which came into power B. C. 1122 and was subdued by flio

quaint form of money consisted of
small curved bronze knives, some seven
inches in length, with inscribed blades
and handles terminating in rings.
This knife money dropped out of uso
with the reduction of Ts'i, but was revived by the usurper Wang Siang, who
was murdered A. V. '_'.'!. The issues of
this potentate were half ns long again

much thicker, nnd the ring ut the end of

central Bqnare hole resembling the hole

Use two strings (not three, as many
do in order to be able to "pull ln" the

from the waist line to the top. Let
the strings hang loosely until the garment is on and hooked. Then the abdomen should be pressed up Into place
by the hands, not pushed down, us
usual, and the lower string drawn up
and fastened. The shape of the corset holds the abdomen In place. Tho
upper string Is left very loose and
fastened. This permits the lungs to
be tilled with nir.
This ls the only healthful way to

The Ways of Doing  Things
Have Greatly Changed.
No Krnnch of Silence has mnde Greater
Advancement Than Hint of Medicine
—Thousands of Lives Prolonged by
Modern Discoveries.
"Few things have developed ns nip-
idly during the past quarter of a Centura as the science of medicine," suid
a well know n practitioner recently.
"And undoubtedly the most striking
phase in its progress is In the treut-
ment of the blood. In the old
days it was thought thut opening a
vein and letting tlie blood out wus a
:ure for must discuses, 'i'he utter
fallacy of that theory was discovered
after a whilo. Then the symptoms of
the disease were treated and the
•.dood disregarded, That also has
been shown to be a wrong practice,
for, though driven uway for u time,
tho symptoms ulways return if tho
cause is not removed, and thu disease
is worse than before. It is the root
of the disease that must be attacked, nnd the most important development of modern medical science has
been In discovering that, In most
diseases, tliis lies In tlie condition ol
the blood. If ihe blood is thin and
pour, the nerves and vital organs
Cannot receive their proper nourishment, the system becomes rundown
and in a condition to invite disease.
Uuild up tho blood, restore the worn-
;>ut nerves and you remove the cause.
When th* cause is roiio the disease
will  vanish."
An Instance of the truth of ibis is
given by Miss A. M. Tuckoy, Ox-
drift, Ont., who says:—"1 do not
know what would have become of
me had it not boen for l>r. Williams'
Pink Pills. My blood seemed to have
turned to water, and 1 was troubled
with dizziness, hcahaches and Reti-
?ral prostration. 1 tried several
medicines but instead of irettiiiK better I was gradually but surely growing worse. I became so weuk I
could no longer work, and it was
while in this condition I wus advised to try Dr. Williams' I'ink
Tills. After using the pills for n
few weeks I began to gain in
strength; my appetite returned, the
headaches and dizziness vanished,
and before long 1 whs enjoying ns
good health as over I bad done in
my life. 1 cannot thank you enough
for the good the pills have done me,
and I hope they will long continue
to help other sufferers."
Indigestion, neuralgia, henrt trouble, nnaemin. kidney nnd liver complaints, rheumatism, thc functional
ailments of women, and a host of
other troubles are all a disease of
thc blood, and that is why they arc
always cured by the use of Dr. William's I'ink l'ills, which actually
make new, rich, red blood, thus
reaching the rout of tho disease and
driving it from the system. The
great success of this medicine has induced some unscrupulous dealers to
offer pink colored imitations, You

Mrs. John Mylos, senior, of South
Woodslee, Essex County, Ont.. is
well known throughout the surrounding country because of her work
among the sick and suffering, and it
was on account of over-exertion in
this regard that her health broke
down, and she lay weak and helpless,
a victim of nervous prostration. Doctors could not help her, and sho resolved to try Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food. As a result sho has boen
thoroughly restored, and by recommending this treatment to others
has boen thc means of bringing back
health and happiness to mnny a
weakened and discouraK*i*d sufferer
from diseases of tho nerves.
Mrs. Myles writes:—"When I began the use of Ur. Chase's Nerve
Food 1 was confined to my bed with
what tho doctors said was nervous
prostration. My stomach was very
weak, and I could not sleep at all
for any length of time. Nervous
chills and trembling woultl como over
me    at    times    and  I   seemed   to   be
getting weaker and weaker all the
time. There was nlso pains on
top of tho head, which caused m»
much suffering and anxiety.
"After using half a dozen boxes,of
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I began to
gain in weight and to feel stronger.
Since then I have been gradually restored to health, and in looking back
can say that the improvement has
beon something wonderful. I used
in nil forty boxes of the preparation,
and feel it a duty, as well as a privilege, to recommend it to all who a,r«
suffering from nervous disorders. Several persons to whom I have described my case have used it and been,
cured, and I am sure that I owe my
presont geod health, if not lifo itself, to Dr. Chaso's Nerve Food."      v

Advancement Than that of Medicine
—Thousands or Lives Prolonged by
Modern Discoveries.
"Few things have developed as rapidly during the past quarter ol a cen-
ture as the science of medicine," said
a well known practitioner recently.
"And undoubtedly the most striking
phaso in its progress is in the treatment of the blood. In tbe old
duys it was thought that opening a
vein and letting the blood out wus a
:ure for most diseases. Tbo utter
fallacy of tin. t theory was discovered
9-ftcr a while. Then the symptoms of
the disease were treated and the
blood disregarded. That nlso bas
been shown to be a wrong practice,
Tor, though driven uway for a time,
thc symptoms always return if the
zauso is not removed, and thu disease
is worse than before, lt is the root
of the disease tlmt must be attacked, and the most important development of modern medical science lias
been in discovering that, in most
diseases, this lies in the condition of
the blood. If ihe blood is thin and
poor, the nerves and vital organs
"annot receive their proper nourishment, the system becomes rundown
and In a condition to invito disease,
lluild up tho blood, restore the worn-
out nerves and you remove the cause.
(Vhen tho cause is gone the disease
will  vanish."
An instance of the truth of this is
given by Miss A. M. Tuekey, Ox-
irift, Ont., who says:—"1 do not
know what would have become of
me had it not been for Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills, My blood seemed to havo
turned to water, and 1 was troubled
with dizziness, hoahaches and general prostration. 1 tried several
medicines but instead of getting better I was gradually but surely growing worse. 1 became so weak I
could no longer work, and it was
while In 'his condition I was advised to try l>r. Williams' I'ink
Pills. After using the pills for a
few weeks I began to gain in
strength; my appetite returned, the
headaches and dizziness vanished,
and before long 1 was enjoying as
good health as ever I had done in
my life. I cannot thank you enough
for the good the pills have done me,
and I hope they will long continue
to help other sufferers."
Indigestion, neuralgia, henrt trouble, anaemia, kidney and liver complaints, rheumatism, the functional
ailments of women, and a h< st of
other troubles are all a disease of
the blood, and thai is why they are
always cured by the use of Ur. William's Pink Pills, which actually
make new. rich, red blood, thus
reaching tho root of the disease and
driving it from the system. The
great success of this medicine has induced some unscrupulous dealers to
offer pink colored imitations. You
can proiOCt yourself against these bv
seeing thai the full name "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills lor Pale People" is
printed on the wrapper around every
box. Sold by all medicine dealers,

For Months Mrs.   Myles  Lay a Helpless Sufferer-
Attributes Restoration to
Dr.  Chase's   Nerve   Food.
Mrs. John Myles, senior, of South
Woodslee, Essex County, Ont., is
well known throughout the surrounding country because of her work
among the sick and suffering, and it
was on account of over-exertion in
this rogard that her health broke
down, and she lay weak and helpless,
a victim of nervous prostration. Doctors could not help her, and ehe resolved to try Ur. Chase's Nerve
Food. As a result she has been
thoroughly restored, and by recommending this treatment to others
has been the means of bringing back
health and hnppiness to many a
weakened and discouraged sufferer
from diseases of the nerves.
Mrs. Myles writes:—"When I began the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food I was confined to my bed with
what the doctors said wits nervous
prostration. My stomach was very-
weak, and I could not sleep at all
for any length of time. Nervous
chills and trembling would come over
me   at    times   and  I   seemed  to  be
getting weaker and weaker all tha
time. Thero was also pains on
top of thc head, whieh caused m«
much suffering and anxiety.
"After using half a dozen boxes.of
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I began to
gain in weight and to feel stronger.
Since then I have been gradually restored to health, and in looking.back
can say that the improvement haa
been something wonderful. I used
in all forty boxes of the preparation
and feel it a duty, as well as a privilege, to recommend it to all who ftfe
suffering from nervous disorders. Several persons to whom I havo described my case have used it and been
cured, and I am sure that I owe my
present geod health, if not lifo IU
self, to Dr. Chase's Nerve food."      s,

Considerable public attention is being directed toward the Ottawa mine
nowadays because it is lieing made to
pay dividends, and, while it is undoubtedly a rich propeity, there is
nothing phenomenal about it. Let
any one of the spendthrift managers
who have run other properties on the
Slocan lake watershed into debt take
.charge of the Ottawa and there would
soon be a call to the Pittburg owners
to "dig up." With a little capital to
start and sound, practical mining and
business management there is much
niore mining property to pay as well
the Ottawa in the Slocan.
The citizens of Cranbrook, Enderby
and Ymir are considering incorporpor-
ation. All are growing, thrifty towns
that need improvements, the expense
of which is too great to be met by
voluntary subscrition, where all property owners would not bear their share
alike. A careful study of the life of
each of the smaller cities of British
Columbia since incorporation will
afford them a good lesson in how to
govern themselvos. If a list of the
mistakes made by every municipality
in British Columbia were compiled it
would make an instructive book for
the mayors and aldermen of all the
cities, -both young aud old.
The proposed call fora second peace
conference at The Hague by the president of tho United States has beeu
favorably commented on in Europe.
It is suggested, however, in official and
diplomatic circles that the moment for
apeace conference is not opportune in
view of the war prevailing in the
Orient and the unwillingnesss of the
belligerents to bind themselves to any
act which would restrict their operations. The offiicials and diplomats
have expressed the hope that the
president, when he extends the the invitation, will fix a date so that the
meeting will occur after Japan and
Russia have arranged for peace.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, the
mighty railway magnate, and his party
of high-grade subordinate* passed
around the Silvery Slocau and saw
nothing of the hive of industry that
will produce millions in gold and
silver long after their souls have
crossed the last tlivide anil their bodies
made-Jiieals for the maggots. Even
if they were so disposed thev could not
have enjoyed the grandest seonery of
their might; road on account of
the smoke; but after alia railroad man
is like a prospector,   Both will pass
uiiiippreeiativi'ly by the grandest
flights of nature, one thinking only of
his dividends and the other his bacon
and terns.
To J. G. Gwiilim, uow professor in
the applied science department   of
Queen's university, Kingston, Ontario,
is due the credit for the discovery of
the anthracite coal deposits at Bank-
head, near Banff, Alberta, says the
Nelson News.   Professor Gwiilim has
been in the habit of devoting hissum-
nier vacations to geological work for
the C. P. It. and it was when thus
employed tlmt he made the discovery.
Without thought of self enrichment
lit; at onee made known tho  facts of
his discovery to his employers.    Professor Gwiilim has a very enviable
reputation as mining engineer and his
friends here will learn with  pleasure
that he is meeting with full  measure
of success iu his professorial duties at,
,Queen's university.
