business on hand before making way
to tho new dads.
Communications read: From the
city solicitor, enclosing one from D.
D. Giiuii, Orillia, solicitor for tho O.S.
Lumber Co. The latter refused to accept the lease drawn up by the'C.P.R.
for their right of wav through block
F. The mill company wants tho city
to draw up the lease and pay for it,
tho cost bung JIO. The railway company wanted a rent of |6 a year.
The agreement between the mill
company and the citv was read and
the difference bctw.e.i that and the
lease drawn up by the C.P.K. pointed
out. The first was absolute for ten
years at Sl a year, the other being for
25 years at $5 and terminating with
80 days' notice at any time. The city
solicitor was instructed to correspond
with the railway company and to have
the lease altered to tho original lines
of agreement with the mill people.
Returning oilier made his report of
the recent electiou.   Filed.
Tho clerk reported a balance in the
citv treasury c,f $617.82.
Aid. Worden brought up question
of a grant to City Treasurer Anderson.
He and Aid. Teeter moved the payment of S25, which was granted.
The clerk reported that the auditor
had not yet completed his task, aud
theu lhe old board adjourned.
New Ciie-.ifl'll.
Ths new council as embled its. follows: Mayor McNeish, Aid. Worden,
Smith, Madden, Henderson and
Teeter. Each of the board elect subscribed to and presented the necessary
declaratioas'of qualifications and oatli
of aiiKee. Justice Curiis acting as ms***
ter of ceremonies.
Aid. Smith congratulated the city
on having almost a full council and a
mayor.
The aldermanic o.iths of office were
ordered filed.
Mayor McNeish presented iiis list
of committees, as follows: Finance
Aid. Teeter, Henderson and Madden,
Board of works Aid. Worden, Smith
and Teeter. Fire, water and lighl
Aid. .Smith, Henderson and Teeter.
Health A hi. Madden, Worden and
Henderson.
The mayor said th**re was aa important work to attend to at once, that
is with regard to Springer creek, antl
he wa*i sure the council would boar
him out in tint. A survey of the creek I
ought to be mid . and a working plan
drawn up, fo that, they might call for
tenders. A plan was really necessary
for the protection works to the mill
property. To obtain means to pay for
this work, thoy must pass a bylaw at
once to collect the delinquent taxes.
Even with the passing ol the bylaw
there would certainly be a delay of
some weeks before ths money would
be in. Econom y should be the watchword in a'l thing*. The aldermen
should all work together aud strive to
get good value for all monev expend*
ed. Nest, the mayor thought, would
come the appointment of the city officers for the year, he not lieing sure as
to whether the old ones had to Ik- reappointed or not.
Aid. Teeter stated that lust summer
th.- council had voted to amalgamate
all the offices under on * salary. Tliey
were DOW  employing  two men and it
was giving rise to un] 1 lasanl talk. He
did not know whether the council intended to oontinue this.
Aid. Smith believed things were going along satisfactorily.
Aid. Teeter said unpleasant things
were being uttered against the present
arrangement. He woultl favor calling
for applications for thc combined positions. Ho had no hostility against
tho present incumbent of the clerkship
and the business had been thoroughly
done, but there might lx. other applicants for the position. If these were
given a chance there could then ha-
no kick about the awarding of the offices.
Aid. Smith did not approve of any
change in the office, though a small
position, without, reason. The council
sliould re-appoint tin-old officer, as In-
had started in on the new year. He
would just as soon see the present
clerk continue, if his work ami Ixmd-
were satisfactory.
Aid. Henderson said the salary of
the office wai SO small that tliere could
be no aspirants. The present clerk
was used to his work and he should
be continued. A new clerk might not
be acceptable and, as Dr. Bentley bad
given satisfaction, ho should lio continued.
Aid. Teeter remarked that sometimes it was   necessary   to  make a
change. Tho doctor might oven want
to resign. Ho knew of no aspirants
for tht; position, but he wanted all citizens to have an equal show.
Aid. Worden said that when thoy
got a good man in office there wa.s no
uso changing. The clerk was giving
good satisfaction, but if thero were
otlier aspirants they had a right to a
show. For himself, ho wanted to see
no change.
Aid. Teeter remarked lhat it was not
necessary to think thero woultl bo a
change, Tho public had a right to
participate in these things and no man
had a lifo claim on an office. The
c iiincil was trving to do what was
right by all and the clerk's work was
satisfactory. There should be no imputation placed on any member of the
boa cd,
Mayor McNeish, as a police commissioner, said the policeman held
office till he was either fired or resigned. If the mayor had anything to do
with the appointment of the clerk,
there would nave lieen no deadlock
for tho past half hour.
Aid. Teeter said that he was in a
minority, and he knew if he made a
motion be would bo voted down. Not
being sufficiently posted on the law,
he hardly knew how to act in the matter. He, however, would move that
the combined office of clerk, assessor,
etc., lie declared vacant 80 days from
date, as also that of treasurer, and
that the council be prepared to receive
applications Tor the positions.
Aid. Smith held that the various
speech, It was a new experience to
him to lie an alderman and he hardly
knew what to do. Ho had beon a long
une in town, but it was tho lirst timo
he had been iu tho chamber. He
believed the council should work in
harmony together for the good of the
public. He knew of no real issue dividing them, and he supposed it was
the duty of the council to go in for
electric lights and waterworks. That
was what the town was incorporated
for and thoy should do something.
Tho citv's finances did not allow mnch
margin to work on, but all must work
to the advantage of the people.
Aid. Madden could not bo induced
lu make a speech.
The mayor wanted to seo a survey
mado of tho creek, as they should get
to work on the Improvements at once.
They would havo to get permission of
the mill company to pile some of their
lots.
Aid. Worden moved that the mayor
be instructed to obtain tho required
survey. Seconded by Aid. Teeter and
carried.
The clerk asked to have the Ixmds
of himself and treasurer returned from
the bank.   Granted.
Aid. Worden said there was still a
chair vacant at the lxiard. The council had power to fill it and he would
like to see it done. Left over for one
week.
Clerk asked for $5 to gazette the
election returns.   Granted.
Council adjourned.
Arlington Reduction
Works Are Assured
•   •   •   0
It is an assured fact thnt the Arlington people will erect their
reduction works at their mine this season, a statemeut that will be
gladsome news to the people of the camp. As is known, J. Frank
Collom, managing director of the Arlington Mines, has been in the
eastern mousy market off and on for months, and has final ly suc-
CGoded in raising tli3 necessary capital to erect and operate the
works. A reserve fund will also be maintained wherewith to purchase custom ore^ from nei (hboring properties, the owners of which
will br* able to realto at onca on their output without the heavy expenditures for freight and sm -Iter treatment. The information re-
giirdin I the mill was contained ia a letter received here Friday by
H. D. Curtis, thj company's Nkiceaentatura. It came from Mr. Collom, who has been in consultation wilh the Arlington directors in
San Francisco.   The letter rays:
"Bf building the mill we will spend a larger sum of monev in
outai le improvements than ever before on the properties, and it
shouhl but!r- best possible evidence of our confidence iu the mines.
You are at liberty to state that neither Dr. Hendryx or our friends
in Vancouver have any i-.tore t in the process employed in this mill;
that w>j will pay no royalty to anyone, and that there is no possibility of any successful litigation ov.-r tho matter, and uo likelihood of
any litigation being commenced by any of the parties concerned.
We shall not infringe on their right > in any matter and have taken
all necessary precautions to secure the absolute right to use the'pro-
ccss and machinery which we will employ.
'•Active operation .upon the mill cannot be begun until spring.
Tho lirst work will lu the preparation of the site, which cannot be
done till tho snow is pretty well gone. By that timo the timber,
etc., will be on the ground nnd the machinery will be ready as soon
as the buildings. The mill will be a custom mill ami will bid for all
ores similar to those of the Arlington which can be made tributary
to the Arlington basin. It will take six months to complete the mill
after active operations havo begun, so it will not be treating ore before next fall."
The erection of the Arlington mill would mean the expenditure
of a large sum of money, much larger indeed than at first contom-
plated There will 1h> a great many men employed and the results
will be most beneficial to all tbe varied interests in the cam]), ushering in a now era of progress and prosperity. At the Arlington thev
have sufficient ore on the dumps and in the stopes to keep the mill
running-for three years, to which maybe added the great reserves
at the Speculator. In order to treat these bodies antl the ores from
olher claim's, the capacity of the mill mast be enlarged, while general
operations will beon an extensive scale. Onco established the mill
will bring untold lieneiit to the, camp.

temporarily, as the old council could
not appoint for the new year.
The law was read and it was shown
to be unnecessary to re-appoint tin-
officers, as they could continue ill office.   New  bonds  would  have to  Im
drawn up.
Motion was seconded by Aid. Madden ami carried.
Aid. Teeter gave notice that at next
meeting he would Introduce an amendment to bylaw 13, reducing the number of hotel licenses from eight to
seven; also of introducing a delinquent tax bylaw.
In answer to a query, the mayor
said the city solicitor was the man to
draw up the necessary bylaws, as that
was what he was paid for.
A query was made as to who woultl
comprise the new commissioners. Aid.
Smith was the only one qualified to
act from the council.
Mayor McNeish stated the school
board wanted  a   few  dollars to cover
December accounts.   He was opposed
to employees having to wait for their
wages. They should get theni on the
first of everv month and not wait till
the 15th.
Aid. Teeter coincided and moved a
standing order for school money to be
paid on lirst of each month. .Seconded by Aid. Worden and carried.

Whymper sought new fields to exploit on this bide of tho Atlantic,
and his contributions to the twentieth century knowledge of tho mountains of Canada it most vuluahlo to
everybody in general, and particularly to that increasing broih'.'ihooil
of mankind, who, urged on by the
spirit of adventure, delight in climbing upon tho roof of the world.

Mr, Whymper will tell you, wh.n
you ask his age, that he is in his
760th month, and while you aie lig-
uring out that ho is in his 04th year,
you will wonder that timV* has dealt
ao gently with him. Iho average
man would suy that hn wus in hi*
"fifties," and Mr. Whymper would
rejoin that years 'do not make
age," and that his seemingly perennial youth ls owing to the care he
takes of himself, and the bodily exercise ho daily undergoes. To him,
exercise is plcasuro and health, and
all that makes a man happy oni contented. So, after his victories
amongst the Old World's peaks, he
invaded the Canadian Rockies, and
this year ho saw a great deal of
what thero is in the Canadian mountains, lie walked across tho three
ranges which lie between the prairies
of Western Canada and the Pacific
Coast, to see for himself the hidden
beauties of that picturesque region.
Laugh* et Hardship!.
Hale and hearty yet, as strong anil
lusty as a youth in his twenties, Mr.
Whyinper laugns at what those who
while away tho time ut five o'clock
teas would call hardships. A tramp
of 600 miles is not on easy one,
even in an old settled country; io
walk that distance through the
mountains of British Columbia is a
task from which many would shrink.
"And yet," ho says, "it wns merely
a pleasure excursion. I havo gone
from Laondou to Aberdeen, from
Paris to Lyons, untl from Paris to
Marseilles, and, while Great. Britain
and France are beautiful countries,
they cannot comporo with the mng-
nificenco of these Canadian mountains. I started from east of Knha-
naskis Falls on August 6th, reaching
Yale, the head of navigation on the
Fraser, on September Oth, and n>er-
aged twenty-flvo mites a day whon
the weather was favorable. I did
not keep to tho raiiway track all
the time, but when 1 thought there
was something out of the ordinary
to see off the line, I made del ours,
and was amply recompensed for my
trouble. There arc many spots worth
ueeing—and this leads mo to suy
that people should not rush through
the mountains in railway trains, ior
they miss a great deal Ihey otherwise would see; the.v should stop
over at several places to thoroughly
worship the grandeur of nut ure.

"The upper valley of tho Uow," ho
said, "is not inferior to the best
parts of tho Upper Thames, jet along
the entire distance from Uunll to
Laggan, there is not a single seta-
tier." Putting aside such features ol
iho country as are now well known
and places on tho' railway that are
frequently visited, Mr. Whymper indicated ii few points in the vicinity
of the line, which lie considered were
especially  noticeable,   Tlu-y  wore.
The country around Donald, which
Is extremely fine, and almost entirely unexplored; the grand lon-st trees

coves, and foliage overhanging hundred yartls wide, with waters as
clear as the Mediterranean.
A Cellectlon or Fontwesr.
Sproad on his bed were seven pairs
of loot-gear—from sunMitls and slippers and moccasins to h-nvy-solcd
hobnailed mountaineering boots—
which Mr. Whymper uses in his travels. At night ho luxuriates iu Blip-
purs. When tho hard work of the day
begins, he dons his heavy boots or
his sandals, according to circumstances nnd plods along. Thc sandals, ho soys, by ths way, wilh
stockings, nro nn abomination. There
aro mosquitoes, nnd if you have no
stockings on they nro not so bud,
but when you put on this footwear,
the bills of tho mosquitoes fh.d a
tlrm hold in Ihe hose, and then look
out for trouble. The moccasin is
tho be.st footdre.'s under certain circumstances, and the aborigine knows
better than tho cultured white man
how to uso them. Civilization does
not teach us all things that are uso-
ful, and in somo matters our brother in red could give us pointers.
It was a granai tr:p Mr. Whymper
made through tin Kockies. almost
unaocompan.'-il except by his own
personality. He had an assistant
with four tents, who \v< ni ahead to
prepare camping places which Mr.
Whymper occupied, and No 1 tent cf
to-day became No .*> of to-morrow.

Well, he took a smalt hamper with
him, and contrived with the ingenuity of a trained mountaineer, to never find himself hungry without opportunities for gratifying his wants.
"Ono thing was noticeable." he
said, "I never saw a ferocious animal in all ray walks. Porcupines
there were, and squirrels, but no
boars nor mountain lions." Tliis
evidently was a disappointm<ni to
him.
A  Mecnincant  Mennlein.
Tbo Crow's Nest I'eak is a magnificent mountain, ho sn>s, but little is
known of it. The I a*.**, ihe source of
th? Old Man Diver, which Hows from
a largo mountain, is ulso un interesting point, and the Crow's Nest
Lakes have a beauty of their own.
There is an abandoned part oi the
railway near tho Loop, and between
Iho Loop west of that and the Arrow Lakes aro many places which
would prove very uttracti*.e to tourists, and especially to tho**o who carried a cameru. Through lliis country, in tho valleys, wero fine fields
for settlement, but as yet tlvy have
very few inhabitants. ln his opinion, it will not always ba thus, for
the fertility of the iand appeals io
the agriculturist.
On the subject of the relative antiquity of the higher partR ot North
America,  Mr. Whymper snid:
"T am traveling to learn, nnd to
learn about matters which are not
found in books. Tho fact that a
little lo tho east of Winnipeg, and
thenceforward to the Fast all the
way through to Halifax, the exposed
rocks havo been obviously ice ground,
and havo not only lieen ico ground,
but have been ground by ice for Ci n-
turi'S, is a matter of considerable interest. In going westward towards
thn Rockies I cxyiectcd to see still
moro emphatic signs of ice action.
but I hnve not found anything of
tho kind. There aro a number of
large glaciers ln the immediate neighborhood of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, but so far as I have been
abl<» to observe, thoy do not present
any Indications that they have over
beon materially larger than thoy oro
at present."
Asked in regard to comparison of
Canadian scenery with other places
which he had visited, Mr. Whymper
said: "1 do not know any other
part of the world of which it ctin
be said that there is not a dull milo
Sn over 500 miles. My walk across
tho Canadian Kockies was undertaken because I felt that it was impossible to see adequately tho beau-
tiofl of this wonderful region. They
cannot bo seen in traveling by railway alone, even ii ono went over il
twenty times."

Since the acquisition of Formosa
by Japan at Uia clos« of iho Chinese-
Japanes*.* war Japan hus controlled
the camphor product uf the world.
Japan, China and Formosa are the
only countries in which tho camphor
treu grows in profusion. 'Jhe thin*
ese yi.id has never exceeded uuu.ouu
pounds a year. Jupan produces
about 8,000,000 annually, Tho production of Formosa is over ti.oou,-
000 pounds and would it uncurbed increase rapidly.
To lake lull advantage of this
situation tho Mikado's IJoveninnni
four years ago declared lhe camphoi
forests of Formosa to be crown land.-
and mado a monopoly of lhe sale o.
tho camphor taken from lh«*m. Clini*-
recently both houses of the Japan
ese diet passed a bill extending thai
monopoly over tho whole Empire.
Permits are necessary before anj
one can engage iu lhe mnniifartiiii*
of camphor in Formosa, but these
permits are freely granted. The(!o*-
ernment, however, names tho maximum amount of camphor to be produced annually, an.l .very porn I
must be sold io the ('ovi-ninn-iit al
a fixed price.
Camphor enters largely into lh
composition of celluloid and Similar
products, and tho moths get awn;,
with a good deal of it, but the chic:
cause of tho great demand for it at
present is its use in tho manufacture
of smokeless powder. However, the
monopoly and tho increasing demand
are not entirely responsible for the
high retail price. Tho dangoroi.s
character of tne work of gathering
camphor, and lit" consequent need
of costly military protection of the
camphor camps, is u large clement
in  tho regulation  of prices.

THE LATE MRS. HOPPER.
An Oehewa l.mlr Uli.i Ureal lu the Ureal
Age cf Four Venn Over
a Cen.ur..
Mrs. Hichard Hopper, who died ln
Oshawa on Nov. 21, ut ihe age of
103 yeara and eight months, was
probably the oldest resident of Canada. She retained her reason, hearing and sight up to tho tlmu of hor
dtalh and exercised her senses with u
keenness and intellicr-nco that were
nothing short of remarkable. Mrs.
Hopper was born on "Mutch 25th,
18u0, in Devonshire, England, and
when she was six years of age all
England colebruted the great victory
of Lord Nelson at Trafalgar. Sho remembered, and never tir«l of telling,
how ihe bluffs all along the Pritish
Channel sparkled with the bonfires
in  honor of the occasion.  She was u

an unknown timo by savages of the
most bloodthirsty and treacherous
sort. It has been the great dread of
sailors, for one shipwrecked tliere, if
he escaped the sea, was sure to lio
murdered by the natives, who wore
on the constant lookout for loot.
Tho camphor forests are located in
the mountains back of tho east
coast, ond it is among thi*se wild
devils that the gum gatherers have
to work. They an*, sent up into Iho
mountains, pitch their camps and
gather camphor with one hand while
they hold a gun in thc other. Though
their wits aro sharpened by the ever
present danger, whole parties of them
aro sometimes slaughtered.
The savages aro very dark and go
about nearly naked, 'ihey aro urm.-d
with bows and arrows, knives and
swords nnd not Infrequent]}* with
rifles. 'ihey nro as crafty as the
North American Indians. 'J hough
armed guards stand over the men
whilo tliey are foiling tho trees and
getting out the guin, they may bo
at tacked at any moment unless the
savages consider tho force too largo
for them to overcome.
Tho task of transporting the gum
to the plains is even more dangerous than lhat of callccting it. The
paths aro narrow, and tho carriers
cannot present a broad front to tho
enemy. A strong escort, front, and
roar, beating the bushes and srrub
for savages who may be lurking
thorp, is always essential to safety.
As a preliminary step tho Government has detailed l,,r>o0 soldiers to
guard I lio camphor camps aud convoy    the    carriers.      If  this    i.s   not
enough the Oovernment will send a
larger    force   to   Formosa,  for    it
means to put lhe camphor business
on a safe basis,  whatever the cost.
The camphor tree looks something
liko a linden, lt grows to great ago
and si/o if left alone. A tree centuries old antl fifty feet in diameter
is not remarkable, llut to get out
tho gum it is necessary lo kill the
treo. Every part of it, including tho
leaves, contains its share of camphor. The first process is to reduce
tlio tree to chips, which ore put into
iron vessels having C0I10 shape rovers lined with rice straw. Tho vessels nro then heated unlil tho camphor i.s volatilised, The vapor condenses on tho straw- lining of lha
vessels' covers ami is Bcrapod oil in
tho shape of tiny lumps of camphor. |
Theso lumps ore i*r*Iin.xl and pressed
into blocks nnd aro then ready for j
shipment. j
The  Oovernment   hns   lately   intro-j
tlucetl  an  advanced  system  of  foros-
try  in   the  interests of  the camphor
trade,   and   now   ior  every   tree    cut
down     unother    must     bo     plenti-d. |

Like othor people, you dread the
thought ot pneumonia, consumption,
fir any form of lung trouble.
Did you ever wait to think that if
■ulUs wore not neglected there would
he no consumption or pneumonia ?
Theso ailments start with colds,
ind any cough or cold can be cured

ip of Linseed and Turpentine.
"Oh, it will wear away," you say,

This word of warning may be ot
priceless value to you If you heed It.
Dr, Chase's Syrup of Linseed and
Turpentine has won the good-will of
many thousands because of Its wonderful   promptness   in  curing  serious
colds and lung troubles.
Mr. John Clark, coachman, Port
Hope,  Ont., states :—
"Last winter I was so bad with a
cold tutu 1 could not speak above a
whisper, and had great pains ln the
chest. At last I feared It would develop into consumption. A friend advised me to use Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed und Turpentine, and one bottle cured my cold, which I believe
would have proved very serious If I
had not used this medicine."

Turpentine i.s sold by all dealers at
the advertised price, 25 cents a bottle

cents. Edmonson, Dates & Co., Toronto. To protect you against imitations, the portrait and signature ol

den't like to give you pennies. If you
want money, you should go to work
and earn it."
The boy remained thoughtful for
same time. Tben within u few days
the mother perceived that Willie bad
plenty of pennies. She wondered a
bit where he got tbem, but did not
question blm. But one summer day
she noticed that some sort of a hullabaloo was golug on In the back yard.
Looking out, she saw Willie surrounded by n mob of boys wbo were yelling
with delight Sbe went dowu into the
yard to see wbat was going on, nnd us
she passed out she saw stuck up on tbe

JCU1TOHIAI.    IKOri'IMlS.
Hon. H. R. Emmerson has been taken into the Dominion cabinet us min-
istor of railways.
Hon. Mr. Brodeur, late speaker in
the commons, has boon taken into the
Dominion cabinet as minister of inland
revenue. Where does Temploman get

An effort will lie made by the government to wind up the business of

than expected.
' The -Slocan riding must wiggle
along this year on a government appropriation of $15000 for its roads and
trails. rt"i8 better than Nelson or
Rossland, .however, for they were
given* nothing.
W. A. Gidliher, the Grit M. P. for
Kootenay, thinks so much of the Slocan country tbat he has never obtained a single dollar of a government
grant for it since he .was elected, although other sections of the constituency have been systematically cultivated.   It is time for a.change,
Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, has
secured the Liberal nomination in the
Dominion constituency of Yale-Cariboo. A superior system of wire-pulling
secured him the position over a more
popular and able man, Denis Murphy,
of Ashcroft. Conservatives should
have uo difficulty in defeating Ross.
British Columbia's credit is not
quite so bad as the pessimists would
have one believe. The $1,000,000
worth of 5 per cent bonds, authorized
under the new Treasury Debenture
Act, were all absorbed by three insurance companies at par, no commission
being paid. It is quite evident Tory
rule has not been so very damaging.
British Columbia has been securing
au unusual amount of attention of late
from prominent mining journals in
the United States and Great Britain.
The last two years have been most depressing to the mining industry and
capital drifted away to Africa.Mexico,
and elsewhere. Now there appears to
be a disposition to consider the merits
of the resources of the province again,
and it is believed a better state of
things is in store for the country. It
has beeu anxiously awaited, and the
wonder is that the rich and varied resources of the various camps have not
attracted attention of the investing
public and held it secure.

Laurier has funked and will hold
another session of parliament liefore
'appealing to the people.the Dominion
house being called to assemble on the
10th of March. One reason for the
change iii the programme is thut tin'
Grand Trunk Pacific scheme has fallen flat, and is proving a heavy drag
on the Liberal party. Another reason
is that Clifford Sifton, who has been
practically dead for six months, has
suddenly come to life and urged a
delay in the elections. He has discovered public opinion In the west to
be decidedly anti-Grit, and he wants
time to get his Doukhobor and other
"foreign friends on the voters' list, so
as to enable his party to make some
sort of a race. Delay is proving dangerous to the Grits, while Tory stock
is going up.

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his

neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A

in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
