A  4  Engineer   Hazen   is   Now  Examining the Route.  Work Will Be Commenced if Report  Is Favorable.  Ralph Smailes returned last Saturday from the coast where he visited  his family for a few days. Mr.  Smailes spent the winter in England  endeavoring to finance the Midway &  Vernon railway. He found the English n-iarket in an .unsatisfactory condition and a strong prejudice against  British Columbia investments due  largely to ignorance of local conditions  and soreness on account of bad investments in "wilrl cat" mining stocK. Mr.  Smailes returned to New York where  he succeeded in interesting a synicate  of capitalists and* practical railway  men in the construction of the road.  The terms of the agreement ire not  made public but should the syndicate's  engineer report favorable, active construction will be immediately commenced.  W. T. Hazen, a railway engineer of  St. John, N.B., arrived here on Monday. He is acting for the New; York  capitalists and his^repory will, largely  determine whether the road will be  built by them or not. Mr. Hazen, Mr.  Smailes and Mr. Thurston left oil  Tuesday for Carmi. There a man  thoroughly acquainted with the country  was to be engaged and the party was  to continue over the proposed route to  Yernon. Mr. Hazen will examine into  the feasibility of the line and the possibilities of business. It is more than  probable that his report will be favorable since conditions are so favorable  that a practical railway man is almost  certain certain to see the advantages  of having this railway constructed.  Mr. Hazen expects to have his report in before June 20 and should it be  as^anticipated, arrangements^ will be  made immediately for the construction  of the road.  SIMILKAMEEN PROPERTY  pany has repeatedly sampled the ore,  the assay returns giving values ranging from S2.00 to S85.00 per ton in gold,  silver and copper. The assay returns  returns did not include the molybdenite values and go to show that the gold  and silver values are about equal,  while the copper averages a little over  5 per cent., but in* places goes very-  much higher. The smaller leads on  the Bank of Fairview claim range in  value from $2.00 to S1S.00 per ton,  chiefly in gold and silver.  There is abundant water for all purposes in the two streams���Susap creek  and Hunter creek���which flow on  either side of the King Edward group.  Both streams have an abundant flow  of water at all seasons of the year, and  as their course is practically a series of  cascades they afford splendid facilities  for the development of power and for  generation of electricity sufficient aud  more for all the purposes of this Company. This water power is iu itself a  very great advantage, as il does away  with all the necessary expense of the  installation of a steam plant and the  continually increasing expense' of  labor, fuel and wear and tear consequent on the use of steam."  The property is only a. short distance from the line of railway which  will be built up the Simikameen valley.  With the transportation question solved there is no good' reason why the  King Edwardshould not become one  of the big dividend paying minesof  the province.  ���H^x-K^M"^  King Edward Mines. Ltd-, Organized  by Fairview People-  The King Edward Mines, Ltd., has  issued a particularly attractive prospectus descriptive of its mine. The  company was organized in Fairview  this yearjlocal men are on tne directorate. R. H. Parkinson, C. E., is president; H. Jones, vice-president; W. B.  Hine, sec.-treas., and W. A. Hauning,  managing director. The other directors are Thomas Ellis, Penticton; Dr.  White, Fairview, and Dan Brathwaite,  Fairview. The authorized capital is  5500,000 divided into dollar shares. The  company has the King Edward and  eight other claims lying between between Suswap and Hunter Creek in  the Similkameen valley. On the King  Edward considerable work has been  done to prove that the ore bodies are of  vast extent. One ledge is over 40 feet  wide and eight other well defined leads  have been uncovered on the King Edward and other claims. The prospectus says:  The value of this property lies in the  deposits of gold, silver,' copper, and  molybdenite contained in the ore, and  until a mill test of say 100 tons has  been made, no absolutely accurate idea  of the value can be obtained; but the  company has done everything possible  apart from the mill test to arrive at a  fair estimate of the value of the ore.  The property has been examined at  different times by two mining engineers, who have each reported favorably after sampling and assaying the  ore. Their reports are appended  hereto.  The managing director of the Com-  MOREEN SOLD.  Minneapolis People Secure a Good  Thing in Deadwood Camp. ���������������".  H. H. Shallenberger has sold to  Minneapolis parties control in his  Moreen property in Deadwood camp,  which adjoins the Buckhorn mine.  The development Work on the Moreen  has been confined to open cuts aad  shallow shafts. The work done has  proved the existence of a large body of  copper gold ore. The Buckhorn Mine  which adjoins the Moreen on the north  has the highest grade copper ore in  Deadwood camp. The same ore body  is continued through Moreen claim.  The purchasers are all weil known  business people of Minneapolis and  have had a wide and successful mining  experience. A company has been  formed and will be known as the Alliance Gold and Copper Mining Co.  The officers are as follows: President,  Wm. E. Ellis; secretary, I, M. Parsons;  treasurer, and general counsel, D. M.  Earnam. -H,.H..Shallenberger--wilLbe  the manager and will begin operations  at the mine shortly. Mr. Shallenberger has had a wide, and successful  mining experience and will no doubt  place the Moreen, on the shipping list  in the near future.  BOARD OF TRADE.  Supplementary Exhibit Will be Sent  to St- Louis- .-  A meeting of the Greenwood Board  of Trade was held Wednesday .afternoon with President DeVeber in the  chair and the following members  present: 'G. Arthur Rendell, T M.  Gully,King Reese, E. W. Bishop, Fred.  M. MbLaine, Duncan Ross, W. Allison, J. P. Myers Gray, Geo. R. Naden,  J. J. Caulfield, R. C. G. White, J. R.  Brown, M.P.P., and Secretary Gaunce.  A letter was read from H. B. Monroe  stating that as the Boundary exhibit  of minerals was not complete at the St.  Louis exhibition, he had arranged for  a supplementary exhibit and asked  that the Board arrange to send the  same. The Secretary and Messrs.  Naden and Caulfield were appointeda  committee   to   look .after this matter.  The Board eudorsed the movementto  establish local time and then adjourned.  "Not if it cost Ten Dollars  A bottle would I be without Poison's  Neviline, writes J. A.Ruth, a farmer  living near Trenton, Ont. Nerviline  is the best household liniment I know.  We use it for stomach troubles, indigestion, headache and summer complaint. I know of nothing better to  take in hot water to break up a cold, or  to rub on for rheumatism or neuralgia."

Judge Leamy, Arbitrator.  Hears Evidence.  One of the fust cases, uader the  Workmen's Conpensation Act was  heard by His Honor. Judge Leamy, nit-  ting as arbitrator in the court house,  Greenwood, on Tuesday last. The  applicant was Wm. Robb and the respondent, the Granby Company. Robb  was empio3red on Xmas day, 1903, on a  trestle for the compaO.y when he was  ordered by the head caVpenter "to" go  and assist m putting ���**���[ car on the  track. He started to do so but fell between the stringers a distance of Zl}4  feet and was so seriously injured that  he remained in the hospitalfrom that  date until Feb. 6, 1904. It is alleged  that his right lung was r.uptured and  that he was otherwise seriously  injured.  Robb then proceeded to claim compensation for injuries under the Act.  He filed with Registrar McMynn:ir&  quest for conspsnsation .amounting to .  $900. The registrar in turn Jforwanted- '���  this request to Mr. Justice Irving-.of  the Supreme Court who appointed  Judge Leamy arbitrator with all the  powers of a'supreme court judg-e. His  Honor proceeded tc hear the evidence  on Tuesday last, H. C. Shaw appearing .for Robb and D. Whiteside-of  Grand Forks for the company.  Dr. Spankieand Robb himself,, gave  evidence for the applicant. Under the  Act he had to submit to a medical  examination at the request of the company and 'Dr. Oppenheimer who made  this examination gave evkence.  Superintendent Williams, head Carpenter Wright and Engineer Smith  also gave evidence for. the company..  The arbitrator reserved his decision  until he -received -the-stenographer!^  notes  As soon as the award is made if ia  favor ofthe applicant, his judgment  becomes a; "judgment in the County  Court. Either side has this right to  appeal to the full court. ������������  The Workmen's Compensation Act  was passed by the legislature tvy*o.  years ago and is similar to the law in.  force in England. It imposes on.Jhe  employer a liability for any accident  to a workman arising out of 'his'employment. This is'the first case to be  tried under the Act at' least in the  interior and outcome will-be  awaited with interest. -.-��� .,       ... i  '!*  KAMLOOPS ELECTION.  ..,>������  Kamloops, May 30.��� Hour F' J.

"When i left New York last  Wednesday, the deal for the purchase of the mines in the Boundary country by the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated Mining &  Smelting company was practically closed," said Fred H. Oliver,  manager of the Morrison mine,  who returned yesterday from the  east, to the Spokesman-Review.  "The stock for the Morrison  stockholders will be issued at  once, and I understand that the  first payment on the Dominion  Copper company's properties was  made a week ago last Saturday.  There is a large amount of stock  to issue, but it is to be attended  to at once.  "The Montreal & Boston company, which is controlled principally by New York men, has  now about 70 per cent of the  Morrison stock. We take all  stock in the new company for our  Morrison company stock, giving  30 shares for one.  The company gets all the  Dominion Copper company's properties, amounting to about five  claims, three fourths of the  Emma   group,    the  LEAD BOUNTY EXTENDED.

Dr. Sussman  is connected with the German  branch of the American Metals  Co., a large New York concern,  that has something to do with  the handling of the product of  the Boundary mines when it gets  into marketable form. He has  been at Butte, Salt Lake Cityt  Denver and other western points  and will shortly proceed to Arizona, where he will continue his  exhaustive examinations of the  metalliferous deposits and reduction works.

The Opposition  has been animated by two motives���  to gratify the Canadian Pacific by attacking a rival project, and to waste  time in order, if possible, to throw  the general elections over into next  year, when a formidable ally, in the  form of hard times, might perhaps  come to Mr. Borden's aid. Sir Wilfred  would have welcomed all fair criticism of the Government's scheme, but,  instead of that, the Tories have kept  the House listening for weeks to farfetched predictions of disaster, to  aspersions upon the good fait.i of the  Grand Trunk directors, and to the  mere multiplication of words for the  sake of prolonging the session.  It has been argued that the Grand  Trunk Pacific is getting too much;  also that it is getting too little and  must return to Parliament for relief.  Mr. Blair's condemnation of the  scheme has been made much of by  Mr. Borden. But he has ignored Mr.  Blair's condemnation of his own proposal to acquire the unprofitable Lake  Superior division of the Canadian  Pacific.  The running-power provision has  been derided as impracticable, yet a  similar provision appears in Mr. Borden's plan for reaching Winnipeg,  that is to say he would buy the Lake  Superior section of the Canadian Pacific arid allow other roads to use it.  Mr. Haggart admits that the Canadian Pacific carries wheat in winter  from Winnipeg or Fort Willian to St.  John for loading on its Atlantic  steamers, but insists that the Grand  Trunk Pacific, with more favorable  grades and curvatures, will not be  able to do so.  Mr. Lennox says in effect that the  back country of Ontario and Quebec  is an irreclaimable desert and the Gov-.  ernment, in building this road through  it, is simply throwing away money.  Then he adds that if there is much  good land there, Ministers are neglecting their duty in not retaining control  ofthe line; in other words, in renting  it to the Grand Trunk Pacific.  Mr. Osier, a Canadian Pacific director, denounces the provisional directors of the Grand Trunk Pacific as  "fakirs." They consist of such men  as Sir Rivers Wilson, who was sent  by Lord Beaconsfield to handle the  finances of Egypt, and who is chairman of the Graud Trunk Railway with  its 40,000 shareholders in the United  Kingdom; Lord Welby, a distinguished  public man, and Mr. Smithers, one of  the best known men on the London  Stock Exchange, both directors of the  Grand Trunk; to say nothing of Mr.  Hays, Senator Cox and Senator Gio-  son. These "fakirs" have deposited  $7,000,000 as security for the fulfilment  of their contract. Mr. Osier and his  co-drrectors of the Canadian Pacific  deposited only $1,000,000.  This sort of thing does not enlighteu  .any__onejm_dawa.siJlPjt tended^ to, ^ The  Opposition took its cue in this matter  from Mr. Osier, and Mr. Osier wants  to head off a rival road. Meanwhile  the West is crying aloud for better  rail facilities for handling its constantly increasing crop, and the older provinces, that have been losing ground  of late, desire to see their vast tracts  of new territory brought within reach  of a market. Having to choose between the interests of the Canadian  Pacific and the interests of the country  at large, Sir Wilfrid prefers to serve  the latter.  This is the real issue between the  two parties. It became dear when  Mr. Borden proposed to take the Lake  Superior section of the Canadian Pacific off its hands while paying it a price  sufficient, at a most moderate estimate,  to complete and equip a better route  between Winnipeg and Sudbury or  North Bay through American territory.  From beginning to end the Opposition  has been steered by Mr. Osier, with  the object of preventing all-rail competition to and from the West, national  considerations being treated as of no  account, just as in the United States  the existing transcontinental roads are  fighting .against the construction of  the Panama Canal.

No  good reasons have been advanced  against such * a .movement. It  is rather a striking commentary  on the enlightened Chistianity of  the -twentieth century, that there  is to-day* keener .competition  among the' churches tkan probably any other institutions.  Here in Canada two' and of ten  three men. are* doing one man's  work,- each drawing half or third  pay. while work for two men iu  some other point remains undone.  The religious side of' this question is left to clergymen to discuss.* ��� Prom the standpoint of  good citizenship, a live progressive: church is.a valuable asset in  a-ny .community. Those ��� who  have'the-best interests of this'  great * country ��� at heart would  regret to see communities built  up in the unsettled portion without the church and the school.  Today ministers Of' separate denominations -are - starving each  other out of some locaHties while  there is a loud call for men to go  and;-*preach the gospel in man}*  places and there are but few who  answer the call. ". ?  y$houl-d" the union .-take place,  the ������ church ..would become more  progressive ���' and aggressive "in  the*older settled communities and  its?-ministers would-be able to  fake-apposition ' more in keeping.  with their high calling, and then  there would be men available to  build up,'what is necessary iu  every health}* communit}-���a live  church.  THE MAN AND HIS MISSION  Even a knocker is sometimes  useful. William ' Fleet Robertson, the provincial minerologist,  has relieved the anxiety of those  timid ones who conjectured all  sorts of trouble as soon as the  East' Kootenay reserves ��� were  thrown open. It was feared that  there would be such a rush into  this much* advertised and ' much  discussed district, that there  would be many 'disputes' about  locations, and that serious trouble  might ensue. There is not much  danger now - if Mr. Robertson's  opinion is worth anything .and if  it is not, then hi.s salary should  be saved to the province.  : The government was beseiged  by importunate* licence . seekers.  It knew hot "which way to turn.  Whatever ' action it might take  would offend an, opposing* faction  and the government was not particularly anxious to offend any  one. So William Fleet Robertson was sent into., the Flathead  district. ' He returned and. published a' report. " Prospectors and  speculators in oil fields who take  any stock* in Mr. Robertson's report will hot give a button for a  license, * The)** will not make any  strenuous - fight ������ for- locations  which such a renowned expert  describes in' concluding hisvery  interesting report as follows: "I  would report the actual seeping  of oil in, three or four places; that  the existence of a body of oil  underground is . quite possible  though exceedingly problematic;  that if such body of oil does occur it can only be demonstrated  by boring iu all probability to a  considerable depth and at considerable cost."  Thus is peace* and good , order  in this glorious province maintained. ' Who ' would ' want to  have this. province disturbed by  an inrush of people such as have  made mining camps on' the other  side notorious?" 'Twere much  better that.our resources should  be belittled 'than 'have 'a 'large  influx of people. :. 'British Colum-'  bia can get~along with outpopu-  lation anyway. Man has a nasty  habit of spoiling natural scenery  and scenery is. what every true  British ��� Columbian boasts about.  The province is of course in debt  but debt only adds to the charm  of living so' long as there is  scenery.   ������������������  It* is not' the first time that  William Fleet Robertson headed  off a threatened boom. Last year  there was exceeding great danger  that the Popular Creek district,  would become possessed of - a  ���'.boom" but Mr. Robertson went  there and. reported.     Since then  all one hears of Popular Creek is  contained in the pert paragraphs  of Jim Grier in the Popular Nugget. And then there is the  Similkameen. A few years ago  Mr. Robertson went there and  reported. Since then the Similkameen rich in mineral and other  resources has not been troubled  with a boom and its people have  had abundant opportunity to  study its magnificent scenic  beauties.  A few misguided residents of  this province who'have not* yet  realized that its ideal destiny  does not lie in the exploitation'of  its natural resources, suggest  that it is unfair to monopolize  the valuable services, of William  Fleet Robertson; that other  countries less rich in natural advantages should not be.entirely  shut out from the benefit of his  services; and that that Mr.'Robertson should be. spared for a  brief season: This is of course a  selfish world and it is goodpolKry  when you have a good thing to  stick it. Experiments are sometimes .costly and in the absence of  Mr. Robertson the mineral resources of the'province might be  developed, there might be an influx' of' capital andmen���in fact  a boom might come'.    '       ' ''  TO ENCOURAGE REPATRIATION.  The Times has been aske.1 to draw  attention to the fact that to further encourage the repatriation of Canadians  who have takca the oath of allegiance  to a foreiffn country the Government  of Canada at the last session caused an  act to be passed providing* that any  such who renewed their domicile in  Canada can be re-naturalized in a  period of three, months.

Sub-Contractors  Getting  Busy.  U  C. P-.--R-' Officials Pay the Boundary  a Visit  J. Hi Kennedy, chief engineer for  the Great. Northern and C. A. Des-  Brisay, right of way agent, were in  the city this week. It is thought that  as soon as the Grand Forks-Phoenix  contract is well under way, arrangements will be made to complete the  road from Eholt to Midway. Work on  the Curlew-Midway branch will be  commenced immediately.  The railway men are getting to work  according to the Grand Forks Sun. It  says:  . Andrews & McDowell, who have the  contract for the Granby spur aud the  first mile and a half of the Phoenix  branch, are locating their camp on the  Rankin ranch, near W. H. P. Clement's new residence. They will move  their horses out today, and will be at  work in a few days now.  Fourcarloadsof horses, several car  loads of supplies a.nd a large contingent of men arrived by last night's  Great Northern express. The station  presented a metropolitan appearance  and crowds of people were to be seen  moving in all directions.  Frank Corell, through whose ranch  the Phoenix branch, of the V. V. & E.  runs, is asking $500 from the contractors who haye the contract for that  portion of the road to go on his property in orderj to-commence work on  the right of way, which was purchased  from him and paid for some time ago  by the railway company. If this occurs on every piece of property through  which the branch runs the contractors  will have more trouble than C. A.  DesBrisay, Great Northern right of  way agent, had in securing the right  of way.  P. D. Hughes and family arrived in  the city from Spokane last Saturday,  and left for Phoenix yesterday.' Mr.  Hughes has a contract for one mile of  the Phoenix branch near Phoenix.  "cyJAy DesBriSayV"Great"Northern  right of way agent, arrived in the city  Tuesday over the C. P. R.  ��� P. Welch's commissary building is  about completed, and the grain and hay  warehouse is well under way.  '.- E. White, bookkeeper for P. Welch,  is expected to arrive in the city this  week. He will occupy the old Columbia ' Townsite company's offices on  Government avenue. '  The Great Northern Railway Company has appointed H. Sheedy, late of  Marcus, Wash., as.agent at Grand  Forks, vice W. E. McDaniel. who will  hereafter have charge of the freight  department. Mr.. Sheedy comes well  recommended as an efficient railroad  man.  The tower house at the Great Northern and Hot Air line crossing has been  closed, and Mr. Lawrence, who has  been in charge of it, is helping at the  Great Northern while the rush is on.  Later he will move to New Westminster to accept a position with the  Great Northern.  R. Marpole, general superintendent  of the Pacific division of the C.*"P. R.,*  and party of railway officials were in  the Boundary this week. Mr. Marpole  came to Nelson to install J. S. Lawrence as successor to F. F. Busteed  who has been promoted to the position  of assistant chief engineer. Mr. Busteed accompanied Mr. Marpole. A. E.  Stevens, chief train despatcher has  been appointed trainmaster to succeed  J.

C  'H  WINNIPEG MINE  Is To Be Sold���Lien Claimants Likely  To Be Paid.  This week R. B. Kerr, solicitor for  the complainants, received the official  papers in the case of Samuel MjLel-  land and 27 others against the Winnipeg Mines, Ltd., and the Bank of  Montreal, in which the latter endeavored to have its claim, preferred over the  mechanics' liens. As stated in the  Pioneer some weeks ago, the appeal of  the Bank of Montreal was dismissed  with costs against the bank. Before  further action could be taken b}' the  lien claimants, the official documents  were required to be in hand.  ' These documents show that the case  was considered by the Hon. Chief Justice Hunter, the Hon. Justice Irving  and the Hon. Justice Duff in the Supreme Court on the 26th of April last,  when the appeal was dismissed as  stated. C. R. Hamilton appeared for  the Bank of Montreal, appellants, and  W. J. Bowser, K. C, appeared for the  respondetts. The appeal from the  order of Judge Leamy, of the county  court of December 28th, was set aside  and dismissed with costs.  The total of the claims of the 2S\  claimants is $4,230.33. It is probable  that Mr. Kerr will appeal to Judge  Leamy in a day or two for an order to  sell the assets of the Winnipeg Mines,  Ltd., in which case the sale is likely  to occur about the last of June. The  bank 'of Montreal" had judgment of  some $3,500 and other debts bring the  liabilities of the Winnipeg Mines, Ltd.  above $12,000.    It appears certain now  that the men who worked at the Winnipeg, and others who had liens, will  be paid.���The Pioneer.  CHURCH OF ENGLAND.  The Bishop of the Diocese of Kootenay. the Rev.

A SUBSTANTIAL GROWTH-  The annual statement of the  Equitable Life Assurance Society  of the Uniterl States, which appears in th*-s issue, is a very commendable one for the Equitable  Life.  In the year just past they have  paid in dividends to policy holders $5,682,295.00, the largest sum  ever paid by this or any other  company iu a single year, and  have in surplus the measure of  financial strength; and the fund  from which dividends are paid, a  larger amount than that held by  any other company, thus retaining its name and place as the  strongest in the world.  The new business secured by  the society last year was the  largest amount ever written in  one year without any deviation  from its usual careful method of  selecting risks.  By looking over the statement  carefully the reader will see that  the year just past has been a satisfactory one to the society and  its large number of policy holders.

There has been no hitch in  the negotiations, however, and the  final completion of the merger is fully  assured.  The trial of Johnson vs. the Yale  Mining Company was commenced.  This is an action brought by Daniel  Johnson, au employee of the defendants, who was injured on the 14th of  July, 1903, whilst at work on the construction of a stamp mill on the Nickle  Plate mine at Hedley Citv. The rope,  iu connection with the steam hoist,  used in hoisting timbers for the plant  in question, broke and the plaintiff was  struck by the falling timber, had his  collar bone broken, his head severely  cut and suffered other injuries. The  plaintiff claimed that the rope was not  strong enough, and that he was compelled to use it. The defendants pleaded that tbe accident happened through  no fault of theirs and charged contributory negligence on the plaintiff's  part. S. S. Taylor, K.C., appeared for  the plaintiff and E. V. Bod well, K. C,  for the defendants. The plaintiff was  the only witness called by Mr. Taylor.  He detailed the circumstances in connection with the accident and the  injuries he suffered in consequence.  He was laid up in the hospital until  October 15th. He earned $3 per day.  The defence called S. S. Fowler, M.E.,  who in this instance gave expert evidence on the construction and relative  strength of ropes generally. H. R.  Swan and D. J. McNally also testified.  At the conclusion of a brief argument  by counsel, judgment was reserved  and at 1.10 the court adjourned until  2.30.���Nelson News.

A fierce fire raged among several  loaded cars in the C. P. R. railroad  yards at Grand Forks last Saturday.  The car in which the fire started contained acids, oils and other inflammable  stuff, and explosion followed explosion,  making d.itigeyous work for the firemen  who, however, stuck to their posts until  the blaze was under control. Had there  been a wind blowing it would have  been impossible to have saved the station, freight sheds and a large number  of loaded cars which were on the sidetrack. The origin of the fire is supposed to have been the acids, of which  tnere were four cases consigned to the  B. C. Copper Company at Greenwood.  Loss is placed between $3000 and $4000,  including the loss of the box cars and  the other partly destroyed. This was  the second fire in the C. P. railroad  yards within the last week.  ���J Sf ft Sf *!t ��f Sf Sf * ft Sf Sf Sf Sf Sf Sf�� Sf * Sf SI * St*�� St SfSf Sf S* S< S* * S* Sf S* S*S�� Stft ft *�� Sf ft # ft ��* ft * ft *���*���* ft  ft *  ft '*"*.-��  ft  .*��  ft  ���ft  ���ft  ���ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  a  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ���ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  Sf  ft  ���ft  WHY RUN THAT OLD MACHINE WHEN YOU CAN TRADE  IT FOR A NEW DROP HEAD  SINGER AND PAY THE BALANCE MONTHLY  The Singer leads and can be bought on you own terms.
