According to advices received from  Victoria yesterday the lowest tenderers for the construction work on the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway from  50-mile House to Williams Lake are  Messrs McKinnon, Cooper, Drabble  & Co., of Vancouver. A conference  is being held between government engineers and the contractors in Victoria. ■"'.. '"■"■;*;'""""  Among the tenderers were the Foundation Company of British Columbia,  Limited: Messrs. Grant Smith & Co.;  Northern Construction Co.; Messrs.  McKinnon & Co.; Messrs. Palmer  Bros.; Robinson & Co.; Sullivan &  Co., and H. A. Stewart.  GILLEY BROS.

FIR   LOG  CUT   NEAR  COAST WORTH $500  PORTLAND—A fir log cut on the  Siuslaw river measured this week  scaled 2G.00O. It was PO feet in length  about 6 feet in diameter and straight  and clear. Lumbermen stated that  the log was probably worth $500 in  the water.  VERNON NOTES,  The Vernon Fruit Union is erecting a new storage warehouse 80x400  feet. The structure will be frostproof, the largest of its kind in the  province and will be capable of holding 250 cars.  CLOVERDALE NOTES.  "That plans and specifications be  prepared and tenders be called for  the removal of the existing plank  road approach to the Fraser River  bridge at South Westminster and for  the grading and graveling of a par-  manent roadway at that point," was  a resolution   passed  at  last  Saturday  CAPILANO   BRIDGE  The permanent location of the Cap-  ilario Bridge on Marine drive is still  a debated question says the North  Shore Press  editorially.  The Provincial Government .has  manifested its interest in the restoration of,the bridge over the Capilano  on Keith road, by agreeing to defray  one-third of the cost of the new  structure, in common with the federal government and the municipalities  concerned, but unfortunately the offer  has attached to it a condition, which  altogether neutralizes its value to the  municipalities in the demand that  the site of the bridge be changed'to  a position about eight hundred feet  higher up the stream. •    •   ;.  If this were done, it would at once  shoulder upon the municipalities the  necessity of changing the route of  Keith road on the east of the Capilano and of the Marine Drive on the  west of that stream, in order to connect with the new bridge site. These  changes would involve the necessity  of purchasing right-of-way for road  purposes and the construction of the  new pieces of roadway would necessi  tate the building of a new bridge over  Sisters creek at a cost, as yet unknown. The span of the Sisters  creek bridge would need to be at  least fifty feet and the nature of  the supports could not be determined  until soundings were made to determine the nature of the foundations.  It is certain at any rate that the additional expenditures which the municipalities would find necessary to assume, would amount to more than the  proposed assistance by the government.  The municipal councils are therefore acting strictly in the public interests in submitting their case to  the department with a view to having the government accept the present site as the location of the new  bridge.

News   comes  from   Hope   that  the  gold dredge which lias been operating  there for some time  past is  getting  very  satisfactory   results   and   it is  hoped   that  if  the   present   favorable  indications     continue     arrangements  will  be  made to build  several more  dredges of the same type'and operate  on a  more extended /scale.    A  very  fine showing of free gold ore Is being  opened up on a property close to the  Emancipation "group   at   Jessica," fifteen miles above Hope.
