This leaves the coffee cut (not  ground) to.a uniform fineness, after removing  all chaff and other objectionable matter. The1  chaff which has been removed contains a large  proportion of the tannin or injurious substance.  It is impossible to make a perfect- drink  from coffee ground in the old way, where dust  "and chaff is indiscriminately, mixed with par-  ticles-of all sizes. Large and small-particles  of coffee can no more be cooked together than  large and small potatoes.. On the other hand,  powdered coffee results in. a muddy infusion  which will not settle.       - - -  ALSO AGENTS  FOR  RAM LALS TEA  QOLDSWORTH TEA  LIPTON'S TEA, '������� and 2nd grades  HAVE YOU TRIED UNCLE SAM'S ROLLED OATS?,  THE   BIG   STORB  ^X*CMXMX^X"XMXw^^^"���"XMX^XwX^wX���"XwX���^XMSMJ,^MX'"t���  Russell-Law-  COMPANY,  LIMITED  .

Greenwood is to have an abundant  supply pf pure water before the year  1904 expire, if the present plans of tke  city council can ije carried out. For  several weeks" the council,has been in  consultation with the city engineer relative to the feasibility of extending  thejsystem and securing supply from a  purer source than the present. At the  last meeting of the city council it was  decided to secure the services of Mr.  Van Buskirk - until recently city  engineer at' Rossland to assist Mr.  Johnson in preparing a detailed plan  of the proposed, extension. Mr. Van  Buskirk Js a recognized authority on  water and has had great success in  establishing water systems in Stratford; Ont., and other eastern towns.  He is expected here this week and will  likely meet the council at Monday  night's meeting.'  The necessity, of-an extension of the  system has been apparent for sometime, but nothing was attempted by  the past 'council''because-of-lack of  funds:- It is thought that with careful  financing it will, be possible to carry  out the undertaking this year without  increasing the bonded indebtedness of  the city. In order to do this all taxes  delinquent must be paid in during the  year. The council decided to hold a  tax sale in November of this year,  when all property on which taxes are  delinquent will be sold. The late date  of the sale will give all parties interested an opportunity to make arrangements to pay up but the plan of  Axtend|ng the waterwqrk_s_is so_im-  portant to the best interests of the city  that the council has no other alternative but to enforce collection of delin  quent taxes.  When the Greenwood system of  waterworks was first established, a  reservoir was couslructed on Twin  Creek. Since then Phoenix al the  headwaters of the creek has grown to  a city of.considerable proportions. The  difficulty of keeping the source of  water pure is apparent. The council is  arranging for another supply of water.  A dam will be built and about 7000  feet of pipe run to connect with the  present system. The water from the  new source will be absolutely pure and  there is little danger of contamination  in the future. In case of fire the Twin  Creek supply will also be available  With the purer supply of water it is  expected that the revenue from the  water works which is already considerable will be largly increased.  T  PHOENIX���GREENWOOD  Extension of Electric Power   Line  Completed Last Week.  to Phoenix.' Theipowfcr farcin..Uiis new  line will ^be used in. thea-^njish Columbia Cappsr Co.'s Greeawooti smelter  as soon Us .all the tpaiisiprtncrs and  Other necessary machinery is .in place-  at an early( date. The ;.,urent will  come in at a voltage of 22,'0(p, and*will  be transformed down to - 2,200, and  later to 500 volts, if necesaary.'J It is  expected that the service for lighting  the city of Greenwood will be lakea  from the new power Hue as suon as it  is in working order.  WANTS-  CUSTOM  Phoenix  Business  ti n ���  Men  OFFICE  Want  One  The business men of Phoenix have  for some time been urging upon the  Dominion government the necessity of  establishing a customs office in that  city. Considerable expense and delay  has arisen, because under present arrangement goods for Phoenix must be  cleared either at Greenwood pr-.Grand  Forks. At a recent msetia^ *;$f fife  Phoenix Board of Tradtf*fc'e~J'oftt>wing  resolution was passed: v----  Whereas, the City of Phoeuix'is the  largest town without a customs officer  in British ���olumbia, and probably in  Canada :  And Whereas, the largest metalliferous mine in British Columbia, and  perhaps in Canada, immediately adjoin  and penetrate under the City of  Phoenix:  And whereas two mines adjoining  the City shipped 463,930 tons of gold-  copp"er - ore in 1903, and the Granby  Company alone has paid approximately  $1,000 a day in freight for more than  two years:  And whereas great quantities of  valuable mining machinery have beeu,  and are still being imported_ into  Phoenix, and a very large import business is done by the merchants of the  town: ���  And whereas-the lack - of ��� a ��� customs  officer causes the people of Phoenix the  greatest possible hardship, expense  and annoyance every day in the j-ear:  Therefore the Phoenix Board of  Trade earnestly requests the Dominion  Government to appoint a custom  officer and open a customs office in  Phoenix without delay.'  G, W. Rumberger,  -    -    President.  W. B. Wilcox,  Secretary.  This week the stringing of the wire  on the extension of the high tension  electric power line, from Phoenix to  Greenwood, was completed. The work  was done by the Cascade Water, Power  & Light Co., Ltd., through its own  men there having been a force of a  dozen at the work for a couple of  weeks. The distance of the new extension is about live miles from the  sub-station in Phoenix to the new substation ia Greenwood, near the smelter.  A heavy No. 3 copper wire was used,  it being what is known aa the three  phase system. The contract for clearing the right-of-way and putting up  tbe pole line itself was completed some  weeks ago by contractor Barber, who  also built the 22 mile line from Cascade  Free Gold Strike.  A sensational strike of free gold has  been made on the Iron Chief Fraction  on Hardy mountain. The property is  owned by K. C. Simpson, of this city,  and predictions are being made that it  will yet rival the best Poplar Creek  properties as a free gold proposition.  Mr. Simpson and a partner have been  doing development work on tlie property for the past three mouths, and  last weok they encountered a ledge  freely sprinlrled with gold. At first  they threw the rock aside, as they did  not recognize at a glance thai it contained the yellow metal, but on second  examination they found il to be the  pure and unadulterated goods. The  strike was made at a depth of sixty  feet, and a couple of days ago some  other samples were extracted, the iike  of which have not been seen in thin  part of the country up lo the present  time.  Old miners say it is the richest ore  they have seen, and if the ledge proves,  ou further development, to be a large  one, tho rind will be the biggest thing  in the Boundary.  From time to time small pieces of  ore carrying free gold hav*-been found  on this mountain, but alcd^chas never  been discovered until tlte one encoun t-  ered on theTron Chief Fraction.

Ready  to Resume Operations  iijfiisn  May Be Secured - If Not Breen Will  Build.  James Breen, one of the best known  and most successful  smelter, men on  the continent, has returned to his old  love, the Boundary country. ' Breen is  not here in the flesh, but he is making  arrangements to   either   puchase- or  build  a smelter on  Boundary Creek.  A few years ago Mr. Breen - secured  control of the Dominion   Copper com-,  pany and spent considerable money in  developing the properties of.^the" company.   He. then figured on the erection  of a smelter for the" treatment of Dominion Ctfpper company ores,'and went  so far as to secure an option on a smelter site at the mouth of Eholt creek/  about one and a half miles above Greenwood. He went to Toronto to discuss the  project with the officials of the com-"  pany, and an agreement could not be  reached.    Mi-. Breen  then  turned his  attention  to other interests and   the  mines "of the company iemained idle  some time.   When the Boundary Falls  smelter closed down it was announced  that the Dominion Copper,^ company -  was negotiating to secure the Bound-  ary Falls smelter and consolidate the  interests of the Montreal and "Boston  Copper   company  with   those'of   the-  Dominion Copper company., It is yet  orobable that these negotiations will  be carried to a successfull issue, but  if  not the Dominion Copper company has -  decided  lo  resume ��� operations   at its  mines and  Mr.  Breen  will'go ahead  with the erection  of a smelter.   The  optiori for the site is still in force, and *  should the negotiations for the Boundary, Falls smelter_ fail ,_the -work- of-  erecting   the   smelter will   be rushed.  The site at the  mouth  of Eholt creek  is an   ideal  one.    There  is plenty  of  water and  ample room for   the slag  dump. - It is the nearest point to the  mines where a suitable smelter site can  be .secured. ���  The principal mines of the company  are the Brooklyn and Stemwinder. On  the Brooklyn over 4,000 feet of work  has been done, and a great.deal of  wonc on the Stemwinder. There is a  tally equipped plant installed and over  250,000 tons of shipping ore in sight. 3  The ore is easily treated and when  the smelter is secured a large force of  men will be employed not only at  Phoenix but at the smelter as well.  The necssary spurs have been laid to  the mines by the C. P. R.  Going to Grant's Pass.  Albert I. Goodell, formerly superintendent of the Sunset smelter at  Boundary Falls, is building a smelter  at Grant's Pass, Ore., for a Colorado  Springs syndicate. He has sent for a  number of the men who were employed  under him at  Boundary  Falls.   J. B.  GaflVy lcft la3t week- and w- s�� Keith  leaves in a few days to take hia old  position as Mr. Goodell's assistant.  H. McCurdy, builder; Daa Guy, black*  smith, a;jd Mr. Goodell, Sr., will also  join Mr. GoodclPs staff. Grant's Pasa  is near the California boundary line,  just across from Siskiyou county.

Vancouver, Feb. 11.���It is_ rumored  that failing Sir Hibbert Tupper, who  hasdeclir.ed hitherto,the Conservatives  will make Hon. R. G. Tatlow, provin  cial finance minister, second choice for  the nomination in Burrard to oppose  R. G. Macpherson, the Liberal sitting  member. It is not known if Captain  Tatlow will accept nomination.  John'Houston, M. L. A. for Nelson,  is in the city. Houston leaves to-morrow for Edmonton,-where he -will engage in.business. He says'-he has not  been able to make money enough to pay  his grocery bills since coming-to British  Columbia. He has" no intention of resigning his seat in the legislature at  present. ..,-*.*  Questions and Answers  J. A. Macdonald asked the Chief  Commissioner of Lands and Works  the following questions: 1. What is  the area of reserved lands in the  province? 2. What is the. area of  crown lands alienated by the crown  since the unioon with Canad:t? 3.  What is the aggregate amount of taxes  paid since said union by railway com-  padies and land companies, respectively, on land alienated to them by the  crown? 4. What were the several land  reservations made for, respectively.  Hon. R. F; Green replied as followsT  "I. About 10,000,000 acres. 2. It is  not possible to answer the question  without having, a statement prepared  from the records, which would be a  work involving^ much- labor.and time.  3Mt will take: a very long time to arrive at an answer tp this question.  The lands referred to are taxable, iu  some cases, as soon as alienated by the  com paniea direct to the parties to whom  alienated, and in other cases direct to  the companies at the expiration of the  period of exemption. If not already  alienated by such companies; and as  these lands are distributed on the assessment rolls with the other taxable lands of private individuals, without any distinctive mark to show that  they were originally subsidy lands, the-  whole rolls will have to be examined  and a list made out of each.parcel included in the separate laud grants. 4.  A return to the legislature"of.~the pnn:  cipal reserves, giving the information  desired, is published in the sessional  papers for 1903, at folio J 23."  Dr C- M. Heudor.son, V. S., wiu/wus  recently appointed by the Dominion  government to taki: charge of federal  quarantine mailers in I'.ie district between Cascade and. Princeton, arrived  in the city last evening, and will make  liis headquarters hero. Heretofore the  work haa been tlor.*..- by Dr. Armstrong  ot Nt'lson, but the territory was much  too large for one num. The department of agriculture ;il Ottawa has decided upon a more vigorous inspection  of stock coming from the.-other side,  with a view of protecting the Canadian  farmer.  Di. Henderson is a well trained vet-  inary surgeon who has had a succesful  experience   in   the   Okanagan   valley  where he was located for six years,  making Armstrong his headquarters.  He will "engage  iu   private practice as  well as iooking after quarantine matters.    Tbe doctor is  a keen  lover of  horse   flesh   and   an   all   round igood  fellow.-   He drove  his own .team from  Penticton   to Green wood accompanied  by Nat Darling, the veteran traveller  for Mainland  cigars.    They  encount  ered   a   wonderful - variety?-of ' roads.  There was scarcely   any   snow -;-from  Penticton to Osoyoos lake and several  feet of the beautiful crossing Anarchist  mountain.-    One of doctor's horses has  a track record but not for long distances'iri air sorts of weather.  The -amendments" to the Granby  company's: charter '.authorizing.-., the  company tc undertake the tunnel project, was passed by the legislature.  MUSIC  MINERAL ACT  1396.

Grand Forks, Feb. 6.���The Dominion  Express Co. have just discovered that  they have bien victiniize'd to the extent of nearly S200 at this point by an  unscrupulous employee who stole seven  suits of clothes and seven |or eight  boxes of cigars-consigned to parties  here,"and then decamped. The name  of the culprit is h , W. Storey, a young  man about 25 years of age who was  employed several months ago by the  C. P. R. here as operator, and he also  handled the express business. During  the last month he was in the employ  of the company here, a consignment of  some twenty suits of clotlies, which  had been ordei'ed from a coast house  through their travelling tailor, came  by express C. O, D., some of which for  different reasons were refused by the  parties to whom they were consigned,  and were stored in the express room  awaiting orders from the shippers. It  was whilst they were awaiting orders  as to their disposal that Storey helped  himself to seven suits valued at 5170,  together with the cigars; .'then he quit  the company and left here for Rossland.  On Thursday last some of the C. P. R.  officials had occasion to open one of  -the' parcels containing the clothes,  when to their great surprise, the box  contained nothing but rubbish. Then  ���ome of the cigar boxes were examined  and found to contain nothing but  C. P. R. time cards, which proved poor  smoking. Provincial constable I. A.  Dinsmore was immediately summoned  and put to work on the case. It was  then learned that a man from Grand  Forks had been trying to dispose of  clothes in Rossland. From Rossland  it is understood he went to Spokane.  The express company will use every  effort to locate liini and bring him to  speedy justice.

There is already one editor in the  federal .cabinet and another is the  strongest man.of the McBride party.  Others are seeking to enter tha Dominion parliament.  The candidates for Ottawa honors  who belong to the Fourth Estate are  Mr. Duncan Ross, editor of the Greenwood Times, ant1 Mr. J. D. Taylor,  editor of the New Westminster Columbian. The one is a Liberal the second  a Conservative. An ex-newspaperman  is also among the candidates.- He is  Mr. C. H. Mcintosh, former Lieut.-  Governor of the Northwest aud previously editor of the Ottawa Citizen.  In one of the Gilbert and Sullivan  comic operas there is a reference to  every boy being born "either a lktle  Liberal or else a little Conservative."  Messrs. Ross and Taylor were nursed  on politics, the former in a Liberal  house, the latter in-the tents of the  Tories. Mr. Ross is of the school of  Senator Templeman, who from being  editor of the Victoria Times rose to  the federal cabinet, through the crimson chamber, he became a minister  without portfolio. Mr. Taylor is a  Conservative from top to toe. He has  been fed on Victoria Colonist and Vancouver News-AdAertiser editorials ever  since he could distinguish an "shrdlu"  line from clean proofs. Mr. Ross will  contest the scat for Cariboo at the  general election whilst Mr. Taylor  will run in New Westminster.  It will be interesting to follow the  fights.. The pupii of Senator Templeman has been well-grounded in Liberalism, but not more thorough was his  education in that respect than were  the lessons in Toryism that Mr. Taylor  received from Messrs. Lawson and  Carter-Cotton. Like teacher like man.  There will bo a suggestion of Senator  in the speeches tnat  will ecl.b in the  money m  CHICKEN and ROOT HOUSES.

After all, the people who are  directly interested have themselves to blame. They were told  in the plainest terms that it was  impossible for the province to  carry the burden involved iu the  government's pre-election promises, and they were cautioned  against being stampeded by politicians after votes.  There are some grievously disappointed over the failure of the  government to do anything in  connection with railways or coal  liceiises.

Citizens generally will, welcome  the 'proposed extension of the  Greenwood waterworks system.  It is of the utmost importance  that the city should have au  adequate supply of pure water.  This is particularly true so far as  the future is concerned. Greenwood is becoming more aud more  a residential city. For some time  past it has been almost impossible  to get a house to rent" and this  has induced people with money to  ' invest to "arrange to build houses  to rent in the early spring. With  a system of-.��� pure water, it is  much easier to induce people to  come and settle here.' Another  reason why the system should  be increased is that the steady  growth of the city has made it  necessary to give further protection against fire. Then it is" a  good business proposition.    The.  ^im'<^tmiuf"wiir^  per cent annually, a rather flattering inducement for a small  city to increase its expenditure.  The scheme does not offer any  serious difficulties, all that is  necessary is that the ratepayers  should promptly pay their taxes  and the money will be available.  A FRANK OPINION  The Conservatives had^a love  feast at Victoria last-week. John  Houston was there and John was  iu the harness. He had everything his his own way and consequently there was no necessity  of talkiug plainly: Evidently  John "still slicks to his opinion  regard i'ng the Conservative  government in this province. In  the last issue of the Tribune he  has this to say:  "No three men in or out of office in  the Liberal-Conservative parly , in  British Columbia arc so disliked as R.  IT. Green, Charles Wilson, and Richard  McBride. Green is the-most disliked  of the three, and, strange to say, the  dislike is as strongly manifested in  ���Kootenay as in other sections of the  province. He is looked on as being too  small for his job. Wilson has shown  shown tliat he is a failure as attorney  general, and he will pass out of ollice  unhonored. The people have no confidence in these men. and the longer  they are kept in high office by the  Liberal-Conservative party the less  confidence will the people have in the  Liberal-Conservative party."

A BLIGHTING INFLUENCE  CRIPPLING    THE    MINES-  That wonderful statesman, the  honorable Richard McBride has  discovered the proper method of  taxing mines;instead of a two per  cent tax on the smelter returns,  he is going to impose one per  cent on the gross output.' The  McBride government has already  demonstrated that the great  object to be attained by a system  of taxation is to cripple industry.  Recent legislation in this regard  has been eminently successful and  one per cent tax ou the gross output of low grade mines will be  the crowning- effort of a brilliant  administration. The plan is so  simple and so effective that the  premier is to be congratulated  upon such a splendid mark of  statesmanship. On low grade  mines it means an iuci eased taxation of from GO to 300 per cent;  which should be sufficient to  drive away capital and cripple  the industry.  Under the old system $4.50 ore  paid a two per cent tax on Si.00  a ton or two cents a ton; under  the new system S4..50 ore pays a  one per cent tax ou S4.50 or four  and  a  half! cents, an increase of  Premier McBride intimated at  the Conservative convention that  "my" government wculd give  the party its strongest support in  the^" Dominion- elections.- - -The  Liberals in the province will  welcome the; opposition of Mr.  McBride and his government.  Should McBride carry out his iu-  te.iitioris, it is safe to say that  every Liberal candidate 'will  have a walk over. With the  splendid record of the Liberals at  Ottawa, Conservative candidates  were severly haudicapped but  they are completely knocked ont  if the)' have also to defend the  awful record ��� of the McBride  administration. Richard should  have more consideration for his  party.     _____^^  GOLD   BRICKED.  The war between Russia and  Japan may develop into one of  the great wars of the world. All  the first class powers have important interests in the far east,  aud should more than the two nations now engaged in deadly combat, become involved, the situation would become indeed serious,  aud no one could tell what the  end would be.  That war will, in an)r event, be  watched with interest'by all-other  nations. For the first time in  man)' years two nations with  modern navies and well -trained  and well armed soldiers are the  con lesi.auts. In the war between  the United States and Spain, the  latter power was not in a possi-  tion to combat against the navy  and arm}"; of the United States,  and the same is true as regards  China in its war with Japan.  The sympathy of' Canadians  generally is with the little men of  the Orient. They are brave fighters, aud have secured a decided  advantage by not allowing the  Russians to crush them in the  first encounter. , Tb.e Japanese  are now the aggressors, and Russia may find it convenient to sue  for peace at au. early-date.

Many of the electors  had experience with this kind of  gold brick before, but there are  some people who can be'fooled all  the time. Before election the  McBride government was going  to see that the Coast-Kootenay  road would be built at au early  date ami that various other railway projects should receive encouragement. A few who had  faith iu the politician's promises  kept bravely up iu the hope that  election goods would be delivered.  The rude awakeuiug came on  Tuesday last when the Premier  announced in the house that  owing to financial depression the  government could do nothing towards encouraging railways, but  probably a summer session would  We have received from Mr. E.

C. Mining Record gives particulars  of work done in that camp". He says  in part!  The Waterloo, owned by the Waterloo Con. Mining and Milling Co., of  Spokane, "Dennis Clarit, managing  director, and John Harvey, Superintendent, _has made a splendid record  during the past year. In the earlier  part of the year the mine was in the  assessment stage, but since July, when  the five stamp mill-commenced running, the bullion has been rolling off  the plates-at the rate of $5,000 a mouth,  and it is already rumored that a dividend is in sight. When it is considered that so much has been accomplished  in such a short time and with such  limited- nulling power," it speaks volumes for the value of the .'property and  the ability of the management.  I am indebted to the courtesy of the  superintendent for the following particulars of work done, etc. The first  development commenced In January,  with the deepening of the 150 foot  working shaft to 220 feet, when from  the bottom a 'drift (117 feet) was,ruu  and an upraise made to counect with  the 150-foot level, while on the 150-foot  level a cross-cut ^0 feet) was run, west  .of tbe shaft,.where a_winze._iii_the ore  was sunk to connect with the upraise  from Ihe '.sSO-foot level, the vein  averaging three feet 'and the ore  carrying high values. From the bottom of this winze stoping has been  carried on for 100 feet in,length and 50  feet in neignt, for supplying the mill,  the richer crude ore being-shipped. On  the  east ofthe shaft at the 150-foot  level a drift about 75 feet was run on  the vein, rich ore beiug obtained.  What is known as the free gold stope  on the 100-foot" level has been opened  up some 40 feet in length, the vein  averaging three feet. This stope extends up to the 60-foot level, where the  vein widens considerably.  The recent addition of five stamps  and 'another concentrating table will  necessitate extra men in the stopes  wesOof the shaft, where there is a  large body of ore, the-company's  ground extending in that, direction  some thousand feet. At the same time  development work is being carried on  east of the shaft, in the direction of  the Fontenoy claim, both on the 150-  foot and 250-foot levels.  The general value of the. ore milled  gives about $20 on the plates, the con-  centratrates averaging $100 to the ton  and the crude sorted ore which has  been shipped giving a return of $20 tcf  the ton.  On the Dayton claim, some four  miles east of the Cariboo, the owners,  Messrs. Hamilton and Younkin, are  engaged in sacking a carload of,sorted  ore, some samples of which have given  assay values of several hundred dollars  to the ton. The Dayton is one of-  several similarly characteristic claims  _ou_she...mineral._belt__beetween _the  North and South Forks of Rock Creek  and which are but awaiting the advent  of the Coast-Kootenay Railway to be  come paying properties. The result of  this shipment is naturally being  watched in the camp with great interest, its success meaning increased  attention to a section iu which rich  deposits of ore undoubtedly exist.

C. P. R. Announces a Cut in Rates  on Ore.  Harry E. MacdoneH, general freight  agent of the Kootenay lines of the C.  P. R., was seen yesterday in relation  to the rumor that the freight rates in  the district had been cut on ore, says  the Nelson News. Mr. MacdoneH was  seen in his office and asked :  "Is it trite that your company has  cut the freight rates on ore in the  Boundary '!"  "We have kept the matter quiet and  arc not courting publicity in the matter," ho replied, "but since you have  learned of it, I suppose I might as well  give you the facts, so that the news  may reach the public in an accurate  form.  "We have reduce:! the price of the  haulage of ores from Phoenix, to the  smelters at Graud Fork;?,.Greenwood  aud Boundary Pal lb lo 30 cent's per ion.''  "Wiiat was the former rate?"  "The raie was 37 1-2 cents per ton lo  each of these points. The reduction is  7 1-2 cents per ton."  '���What ire the distances over which  the ore is<hauled?"  "Grand Porks is 23.7 miles from  Phoenix, Greenwood 20 miles and  Boundary Falls 25'miles,'' replied Mr.  MacdoneH.  Continuing,die said : "The reduction in the rate for hauling ore is  simply a process.of evolution. In the  earlier days when the tonnage was  small, the rate had to be larger, but  now that we are hauling, as we did  last year, an average of between 14,000  and 15,000 tons per week, aud sometimes more, we And that we can afford  to make a reduction. Of course, some  ���will say that the reduction was made  because we are afraid of competition,  but thisis not true. There is no actual  competition .there, which is the best  answer that can be given to such au  assertion.   Naturally we are  pleased  with the way that the Boundary tonnage is growing, and we look for a considerable increase in the coming year.  You understand that e~ery reduction  in the cost of transportation, treatment  or mining brings in additional reserves  of ort within the pay sphere, And increases the tonnage, and that is what  we are after. We understand thoroughly that the ores of the Boundary are of  a comparatively low grade, and that  mining there must be conducted on as  cheap a scale as possible, and we are  willing to do everything that we posi  bly can to make tha industry profit*  able."

Here it is :  Seven years ago last Juno, the Conservative government was in  power. Today'the Liberals are in power and this is part of their record  for the seven years past: '���'.-'������  -Seven years ago our revenue, was $36,618,591; today it is 863,739,271,  or nearly twice as much.
