The brilliant >--eries of victories  achieved by the New Westminster  Lacrosse Club, over tbe renowned  clubs of the east is a matter foi; congratulation to all British Columbians. All went down before their  conquering sticks, the scores showing the immense superiority of our  B. C. boys.. The Quebecs, then  the Montreals, the Nationals, the  terrible .Shamrocks, - the all-conquering Capitals of Ottawa, champions time and again of the eastern  league, went down before them in  quick succession. The Torontos  alone made a stand by fighting a  draw, which was no doubt partly  due to our> men being out of condition. To play a hard match with  the Capitals at Ottawa on Saturday  afternoon;, travel 330 miles to Toronto on Sunday and play on Monday on strange ground, was nearly  asking too much of them, but even  then they couldn't be beaten.  A thunderbolt from the blue  could not have astonished the easterners more than this aggregation  of talent from a small B. C. .town  has done. It was like a pigmy  storming Gibraltar, and successfully too. The boys deserve a''great  reception, and they will get it sure  on their triumphal return.  LIMITED.  HEAD OFFICE,  Til!  -We ��� poor plodding'mortals, laden  with petty cares, should look up  into the heavens these evenings and  take note of the wondrous panoramas therein displayed. The sunsets  lately have been gorgeous in the  extreme, that of Monday evening  being beyond the tongue or art of  man to tell or depict. All that  artists have dreamed of beauty falls  short of the ineffable magnificence  of the scene. It,is no use trying to  describe the indescribable.- It was  a revelation of God's glory which  dwarfed man's little aims and ambitions into utter nothingness; a  sermon iu the sky that all might  readj a foretaste and promise of immortality.  "THE NIMROD SYNDICATE.  ' The directors, in an interim leport  to the shareholders, state, that the  syndicate acquired a considerable  number of claims situated in various  parts of British Columbia, and resold the same to the British Colum-  bian Enterprise, Limited, on certain  terms, this syndicate holding a controlling interest in that company.  These claims are now being reported upon by Mr. F. G. Graham.  An agreement for the sale of one the  properties to local people has since  been entered into. In the autumn  of last year the directors were offered options on certain claims situated in the Atlin district of British  Columbia, and. having ascertained  that this goldfield showed promise,  one of the directors, Lord Ernest  Hamilton, accompanied by the consulting engineer of the syndicate,  Mr. A. H. Bromley; proceeded to  Atlin. The claims then under op-  tbt: were acquired,  an.L a   number  ot other claims in this locality were  also purchased for the syndicate.  The Nimrod syndicate has been the  first to actively prospect the quartz  formations in the Atlin district.  These formations are for the most  part bold outcrops, free of vegetation,  and therefore workable at a   minim-  1  um of cost. The area acquired is  somethi'ig like a square mile in extent of ore-beariug'country. Numerous assays were made last year by  Mr. A. H. Bromley, and, so far as  surface indications are of value, satisfactory results have been obtained.  Owing to the change of government  in-' British Columbia, unavoidable  delay iu getting the various Crown  grants occurred, and your directors  decided not to do much prospecting  work until such grants were 1  issued.      Information      has     now j  been    received   by  th."  cable  that !

C", .SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15.  if  ir  fr  ��-  A BOGUS CONCERN.  The   Klondike & Columbian Gold  ��� -:-.    Fields Co , 'Limited.   '  The timidity of-the British public  in  investing   in   Canadian   mining  enterprises is once   moie  explained,  by    the   inquiry   recently  held   in  London   by Mr. Registrar Hood   in  the bankruptcy court buildings, info the Klondike & Columbian Gold  Fields!     Limited.    The     company  was registered on August 3rd, 1897,  with a nominal capital of ,��100,000  divided into  95,000  ordin ry,   and  5,000 deferred shares  of ��1   each,  and was formed, for the .purpose   of  operating in milling and other prop-  ��� erties iu the Klondike   aud   British  Columbia.     A compulsory wii'd-up  order   was    made    last   February,  when astatment of affairs was 'filed  disclosing   unsecured    liabilities   of  ^5.737- "The    assets, - valued , at  .��2,808,  are  subject   to   claims   on  debenture  bonds   lor  ,��4,279,   and  the total deficiency as regards   both  creditors and shareholders is  returned ^,��45, 855.    The   amount  subscribed by the public   towards   this  corhpany    was  ,��35,000,    and   the  enquiry was held to discover where  all ��� this    money   had   gone.     The  eviderice disclosed that a clerk in the  war,office, John Morris Catton, was  the real promoter, though the name  of Charles Frederick Flock, a clerk  in his employ at ��2 per week, was  used.    Catton, when not busy 'with  the red tape at the war office, amused  himself   by   promoting  companies.  He    plays    a smaller   game  than  Hooley, but he plays it pretty often,  for he has already promoted eighteen  pany's funds.    A small proportion  of this was ��� paid out  for' expences.  ���He received '3,054 'of the" deferred  shares of the  company.    He  sold  the   Klondike    Co.   shares  in   the  Dawson City Co.  for which   he < received ��5,867. He also sold the company a o;ie tenth/share in a passenger  steamship agency carried on by him  for   1,000.    His capital in'the con-'  cern  was $20,600.    The  company  lost the  $5,000.     In the  course  of  the evidence it was  developed   tha  Catton   gave 50 shares  of the. deferred stock to the Hon. J. H. Turner, 50 to the ,Hon.   G.   E.   Pooiey,  ��>, C, and 200 to Mr. J. Boscdwitz.  These three gentlemen   formed  the  colonial board of directors.  The disclosure of these facts will  undoubtedly lead to still further  timidity on the part of the British  investors towards Canadian niinin '  investments. -But the lesson will have  its good results as well if. it-checks  such frauds as the one just disclosed.  ���Montreal Gazette.  ���Wmk  NOTICE.
