'  ������������������*^fr��-H-**K>��<H'*-}'-'><^^  I American  | Shoes  I For Women  Spring and  Summer Shoes  Ottawa, February 26.���Before thU  reaches the numerous readers of the  Boundary   Creek Times, the measure  adding two additional provinces to the  broad Dominion will have been introduced by Sir Wi'frid Laurier. Regarding the general purpose of the measure  there is likely to be but little difference  of opinion.    Two   provinces are to  be  carved out,  one   to be   called Alberta  a'nd the other  Saskatchewan.     In all  probability there will be  more   strife  over where the capitals are going to be  than about the main object of this im-  potrant piece  of legislation.    But the  wise  ones   see   trouble  in   the bill���  trouble not only for the liberal party  but for the conservatives as well.    It is  the old,   old story of race and religion,  and when a religious issue is interjected into the  politics   of   this  country,  Heaven above knows what the end will  be.    The Catholic minority have separate schools in the Northwest territory  at   \he   present   time.   The minority  was protected   in   this  regard by the  Act   granting .territorial  government  to the Northwest." The separate school's  are    well    conducted   by   certificated  teachers and  are under inspection the  same as public schools.   The people of  the Northwest   are   quite   content   to  leave well enough alone.    It  is understood that in the bill granting-provincial   autonomy   the    same- clause   in  reference to separate schools is inserted.     So far as the immediate effect of  this clause is concerned  the  people of  the Northwest have no concern but the  firebrands will quarrel with the principle of the federal government restricting   the   powers   of   the   province   in  reference to educational matters.  Dr, Sproule, the head of the Orange  Order, will introduce an amendment to  rwipej>utLtl��_claj"se^e^ing_mth_sefi:.  arate schools. His leader, Mr. Borden,  will then be in a quandry. If he votes  for the Sproule amendment, he forever  antagonizes Quebec and without some  support in Quebec he can never hope to  win the premiership. Liberals are not  free from trouble. Sifton, Greenway  and others who made the fight against  separate schools and rode into power  on the issue in 1896 will have some  difficulty in deciding, upon the proper  course of action in this instance. There  is one thing certain that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier has never failed to successfully meet difficulty and he is not  likely to fail in this instance.  made with his estimates, it will take  exactly 27 months to pass the public  works estimates alone.  At the conservative caucus a few  days ago Mr. Borden and some of the  more sensible members of the party  read the talking machine a severe lecture. It was held that where criticism  was warranted it should be indulged in  but the senseless waste of time was  unpardonable and only reflected on the  conservative party. The offenders  promised to be good and they succeeded for a space of six minutes but the  temptation to talk was too1great and  they fell. From four in the afternoon  until midnight thej* used one item in  the estimates as an excuse to talk and  kept 214 members waiting for the end  to come. It is strange that parliament  has not yet discovered any method of  escape from these afflictions. The large  majority of members on both sides are  fervently praying that the day may  soon come when the intelligent electors  will see that these talking pests are  given an opportunity to infest anywhere but the parliament of Canada.

Why men like Dr. Sproule and Haugh-  ton Lennox and one or two others  should be inflicted on parliament and  the country is one of the enigmas of  public life. Their continual and continuous and pointless chatter makes  parliamentary life a burden and costs  the country no small amount. One  statistician has figured out that during  the 23 years Dr. Sproule has been in  parliament, he has cost this country  upward of $1,000,000 by delaying >he  work of parliament by his almost insane desire to hear the sound of his  own unmusical voice. At the beginning of the session it was understood  on both sides of the house that this  session was to be a short one. The  leaders are endeaving to expedite the  work of the house but Sproule and  Lennox insist upon discussing every  iten-r'in the estimates. Hon. C. S. Hy-  ���nan, acting Minister of Public Works,  figured if out the other day and arrived  To Establish Daily Service Between  Phoenix and Chesaw.  Frank Royer will inaugurate a stage  service between Greenwood and Phoenix Monday next to make connections  with all Great. Northern passeuger  trains. He has also decided to run a  stage line between. Greenwood and  Chesaw, Wash., commencing April 1st.  During a recent trip to Chesaw Mr.  Royer received many assurances of  public patronage and support. . He has  bought six horses for the Greenwood-  Chesaw route. The following is the  schedule for the Chesaw-Phoenix route:  Leave Chesaw 3 a.m. daily; arrive at  Greenwood, 7:30 a.m.; Phoenix, 9:30 a.  in.; return trip��� leave Phoenix, 5 p.m.  daily; arrive at Greenwood, 5:40 p.m.;  arrive at Chesaw, 10:30.p.m.. Through  fare 35; express two cents per pound.  There has been no meeting of the  Greenwood Board of Trade for several  weeks. The secretary has been attending to the correspondence so far as  able but there are several public matters now looming up on which the  board should.take some action or close  shop entirely. The questions of a  bonus on copper, of extension of the  telephone service through Anarchist  mountain, McKinney and other points  west, of a terminal freight rale into  the Boundary are all of moment and  the influence of the board is being  sought in the same. The secretary  has issued a call for a meeting on Saturday next at 3 o'clock in the office of  Mayor Naden and has sent notices to  members of the board, to the merchants and hotelkeepers and others,  inviting them to be present'.  The indicationsarethat early spring  will bring up other public matters of  importance to the town, and unless the  board is going to be in a position to  deal with these, it might be better to  take steps to formally disband the  board, throw.up its charter and go out  of business entirely. For the first  time in its history the Greenwood  Board of Trade was not represented at  the late meeting of the Associated  Boards. The other towns of southern  British Columbia are getting ready for  a forward movement. Greenwood,  whose prospects are far better than  any of them,, appears to have settled  into a state of chronic indifference.  Let us all get together on Saturday  and do something, either iu the line of  active work, or in the direction of formal burial and then relieve the secretary ot the task of telling his correspondents that Greenwood is indifferent  to these public matters. For several  years a few people have tried to keep  life in the bo-.'.rd, now let the business  men generally either make the body a  living, active force or quickly bury it  once for all.

I 23  To Foreign Countries 2 50  FRIDAY  MARCH   J, 1*03  The application of structural  g-eolog-)- to mining" is coming* to  be better understood "by both the  geologist and the mining; man,  observes a contemporary. The  "practical" miner often thinks  that the geologist has nothing to  do with the proposition after  practical mining has started. He  confines the geologist's -work to  the preliminary report.and would  banish him from the property as  sopn as it comes time to start  actual mining, but here is where  the miner makes a mistake. A  geologist's work is only begun  with the commencement of the  development of a mine. In the  first place and before development is begun, a scientific study  of the structure of the formation  is   wise    and    often   absolutely-  necessary. In some cases it is all  right to *'follow the ore," but  ag-aiia where extensive development is contemplated, as for instance in au iron mine, it is  necessary to locate a shaft and  the mining building on barren  ground so as to provide for any  settling from future operations,  and to arrange to attack the ore  body in a systematic manner. In  this case a careful study of the  geological structure by a competent geologist will enable a miner  to determine which wall of the  formation is safest and best. One  case in point came recently to  notice. It was necessary +o remove the engine house of a certain extensive mining development, because of sinking ground.  The mine superintendent made  explorations by means of a diamond drill, laterally from the  bottom of the shaft, and finding  on the west side of the shaft, for  600 feet, a solid bed of diorite,  concluded to move the buildings  to that side, ignoring the important structural fact that the formation sloped to the eastward  and that lying on the incline  plane of the diorite was a wedge  cf unstable formation which the  additional weight of the engine  house would tend to force toward  the shaft, the very thing which  it was desired to avoid. The  geologist of the company, who  had studied out the structure of  the formation, saved4he superintendent from his error. The work  of the structural geologist in  finding a lost ore body or picking  up a faulted vein is a matter of  too common knowledge to need  more than, mention in this connection. Some of the Lake Superior companies employ the most  skilled geologists obtainable to  study the structural formation of  the deposit as the mining progresses and to direct the work of  exploring for new ore bodies.  One company employs a well  known geologist, at the rate of  $50 a day, of ten for months at a  time, to work in its mine, studying the structure, so as to furnish  data which will aid in exploration and development. An officer  "of the company recently said:  "Mr. Blank has cost us thousands, but1 on the other hand he  has made hundreds of thousands  for us." There is hardly any  ,mining^proposition���in which it is  not necessary to consider the geological structure of the formation.  In some cases the mining superintendent may understand the  formation sufficiently to avoid  making mistakes, but in most  cases and certainly incases where  the structure is complicated, the  expert study of the geological  structure is wisest  scarcity is simple; they are regularly shipped out of the country  by Canadian banks, which find  that they, can be used to advantage in purchasing New York  exchange at convenient poiuts  across the border. So long as  they can buy United States paper  currency from depositors at a  small discount, it pays the banks  to adopt this cotirse. The same  conditions do not obtain in reference to American silver. The  banks have no silver token currency of their own with which  this foreign coin comes iuto competition, so it is not, to the same  extent as paper currency, an obstacle to their business. It is  obvious that the responsibility  for maintaining the purity of our  national circulation attaches to  the Dominion, government. Every  United States coin in circulation  in Canada is displacing a Canadian coin of equal face value. Its  legal value in the United States,  or its nominal value here, is much  greater than its intriusic value.  Its nominal A?alue is derived by  reason of the fact that it bears  the government's imprint or promise to pay. The difference between its intrinsic value and its  nominal value, amounting .to  about fifty per cent, constitutes  the profit which the government  makes on the circulation of that  coin. /The cost of mintage is  charged against the profit, leaving withal a sufficient margin to  make the circulation very remunerative.

They have paid oue  hundred cents on the dollar to all  claimants, aud have resumed  business in the shortest time ever  known under like circumstances.  They are now devoting their  time to the flotation of the Canadian Marconi Wireless Co.  The Canadian Bankers' Association has submitted a sensible  proposition to the Dominion government looking to the alleviation of the United States silver  nuisance. It is, iu effect, that  the "government should arrange  for the banks to take United  States silver from the public, reimbursing the banks0 for the  charges on shipping it out of the  country, the banks to take at the  same time from the government  an equivalent amount in Canadian silver. It is claimed that  under this arrangement the silver  circulation of our country would  be quickly relieved of a large  proportion of its foreign coin at  comparatively trifling expense,  and an immediate demand would  be created for the product of our  new Canadian mint, a product on  every dollar of which our government will make a profit of nearly  fifty cents. The circulation of  United States bills does not present any serious annoyance. The  explanation of their comparative  G.--T. P. WANTS AID.  Mr. Morse, general manager of tine-  Grand Trunk Pacific, is at. the coast.  In a recent interview he said:  "I have been advised by Mr. Hays,  president of the company, that he has  received cablegrams from Loudon saying that the Grand Trunk Pacific prospectus, issued in London, received tip  to 1 o'clock Friday morning���the time  of tlie closing���subscriptions for ten  times the amount asked from the public. This means," he added, "that our  =financiaLar^ngein^nts,for the line up  lo the mountain section are complete,  and that we will be able to rush our  work as rapidly as our engineering  corps, now, in the field, can give us our  location; or, in other words, that our  work will not, in any way, be retarded  or delayed for want of funds.  "I am only sorry that the people of  Britibh Columbia have not signified a  desire to co-operate with us to the extent of giving assistance, in the way  of land grants, that would justify at  this time our taking up the subject of  early construction at this end. I think  it is generally known that, in order to  build the road in a most economical  manner, and to do justice to our shareholders by obtaining the railroad ft a  minimum cost, it will be to our advantage to work from east to west. Of  course, in doing this, the expenditure  in Brttish Columbia, compared with  that would be made if we built from  west to east, would be materially reduced. It is, however, for tlie people  of British Columbia to say whether or  not they can afford to make it possible  for us to depart from the methods we  are now following in reference to the  construction of the new trail scon thi-  entai line."  **-?���.  4*  4��  Mines  Stocks  REPRESENTING  'The Phoenix Fire Assur-?  ance Co. of London, Eng.

Interment will take place  at Midway.  Five men are now employed at the  Strati*more mine.  The -Vancouver World in a recent  appreciative editorial review of the  mining- situation had this to say of the  Greenwood high grade belt: . The high  grade mines around Greenwood, however, are worthy of more than passing-  notice, especially seeing that there are  more of them being- developed now  than at any period in the history of  camp. Twelve of these high grade  propositions, some of them already  paying dividends and all of them self-  sustaining, are now being operated,  giving employment to over ISO men at  the mines and helping to keep up the  payrolls at the three Boundary smelters. The fact is noticeable that the  men of the Boundary are putting their  own cash into these properties. Eastern capitalists who were bitten in the  share boom days being still rather in--  clined to fight shy of the mines here,  the citizens of Grand Forks,, Greenwood and Phoenix have shown their  faith in the possibilities of the mines  by going down into their own pockets.  And it looks ns if their faith will be  rewarded by the opening up of bonanzas at their veo* doors.  NEW PROVINCES.

At-fY  ANY QUANTI"  PRICE  Chief Provisions of Bill Conferfiuk'---  Autonomy on Northwest.  The following, are the features of the  bill introduced by Sir Wilfrid Laurier  on Monday last, creating the new provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan:  . The dividing line is the fourth principal meridian. The boundary on the  northern boundary is Athabasca. The  line between the Territories and Manitoba is extended straight north, forming the eastern boundary of Saskatchewan province, part of which is cut  off Saskatchewan and thrown into the  unorganized district? There are 25  constituencies in each province for the  legislature. The provisional capitals  are Regina and Edmonton. The finau-  ciafi^-lniraTcHuird  each province, viz.: grant for civil  government 550,000; capita grant, SO  cents per,head on-minimum' of 250,000  population, $200,000. The maximum  population on which this will be paid  is 800,000. A population debt or allowance of $32.43 per head on a minimum  population of 250,000 will be granted,  on which 5 per cent, will be paid, making about 5400,000. The grant in lieu  of land will bring the total revenue up  to 51,000,000 for each province from  federal sources.  The clause in the Northwest constitution guaranteeing separate schools  is re-enacted. L,ater an unorganized  territory will be divided between the  new provinces, British Columbia and  Ontario.  Sir Wilfrid made a strong argument  for the Dominion retaining hold of tlie  lauds. It was a policy which was supported by Sir John Macdonald. However as the lauds were retained, it was  necessary to make generous terms to  the provinces. The lands are valued  at 31.50 an acre, making for 25.000,000  acres, 537,500,000. Of this amount interest at one per cent, is allowed to  begin with, which would give $375,000  to each province annually. At present  each province will receive from federal  soujccs 31,320,000.  able   for  colds,   croup and whooping  cattle, to be actually his own property, COngh.    For sale by all druggists.

Permanent, a provincial institution, one  which lias several stockholders in  Greenwood and one which has enabled  many people in Greenwood and Anaconda, to erect their own homes. At  the tenth annual meeting of the company held in Vancouver on the 22nd  inst., the president, in moving the  adoption of the annual repott, said:  "It is most gratifying for me to  again come before you in annual meeting assembled to move the adoption of  such a statement as the one now before  us. One year ago I stated- that > the  earnings for the year would,be over  5100,000 and the assets would increase  to 51,350,000. Actual results have  shown my estimate to be quiteconser;  vative, earnings for the year, having  amounted to over $103,000, and, assets  having increased to $1,400,000. We  all have good reason to be proud of the  increase of assets for the? year, which  amounted to one-third of a 'million-dollars.' The statement of the receipts  and disbursements for the year Shows  that the sum of S726,00f> was received  front investors in the stocks'arid debentures of the company; $96,000 was paid  in by borrowers as interest on loans  and $295,000 in repayment of principal','  making tptal receipts for the year of  over $1,100,000.  "At a recent meeting a motion was  passed by unanimous vote of the directors, making a reduction of one-half of  one per cent, per annum, to take effect  on July 1st of the present year, and to  be allowed on all loans on which payments are up to date on June 30th."'  The voluntary reduction of the interest rate on obligations is certainly'  a new departure and speaks volume's  for the management of the compaiiy]  This reduction is to be allowed all  present borrowers who are not in  arrears to the company on June 30th  next.  A Chicago Alderman Owes His :Elec*-  tion to Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy.  "I can heartily and conscientiously  recommend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for affections of the throat and  "'ui'gs," says .Hon. John Skenick,.��220  So. Peoria St.,.Chicago. "Two years  ago during a political campaign, .1  caught cold after being overheated,  which irritated my throat and I was  finally compelled to stop, asTcculd not  speak aloud. In my extremity a friend  advised me. to use Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy. I took two doses that afternoon and could not believe my senses  when I found the next morning the inflammation had largely subsided. I  took several doses that day,- kept right  on talking through the campaign, and  I thank this^ medicine that I won iriy  seat in the co-.mcil." This remedy is  for sale by all druggists.  Many people suffer for years from  rheumatic pains, and prefer to do so  rather than take the strong medicines  usually given for rheumatism, riot  knowing that quick" relief from paiin.  may be had simply by applying Chamberlain's Pain Balm and without taking any medicine internally. Rev^  Amos Parker of Magnolia, North Carolina, suffered,for eight years with' a  lame hip, due to severe rheumatic  nains. He has Deen permanently  cured by the free application of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. For sale by all  druggists.  NOTICE-  .

The working- force at the Oro Denoro  is to be increased shortly.  John Matthews is about to start  work on the Putnam claim, which has  a quartz lead.  Northern is  bringing in  ore daiiy to the Granby  smelter from Rossland.  The Great  four cars of  The   Guggenheim Exploration   Co.  has an authorized capital of seventeen  million dollars;     It has paid $1,286,000  in dividends.  ��� .'���  ,'..         The Great Northern steel dump cars,  ��� which held about 50 tons of iron ore in  Michigan, will,   by   actual   test, hold  but 33 or"35 tons of Granby ore.  A compressor plant is being installed'!  on the Copper World,  Palmer mountain, Okanagan district.     The tunnel  will be driven  an additional thousand  feet. '    ' ?       . ;/?  Owing to the scarcity of power, the  Granby Co. is now using the Knob  ;Hill.compressor as an' auxilliary. It is  of ten drill capacity and, of course,  operated by steam.  The Banner claim, E ranklin camp,  north fork of Kettle river, has been  bonded by Frank McFarlane to. * a  Grand Forks syndicate, organized by  Wm. Spier and Dr. Northrop.  David Oxley and Ira Tower .have  located the Sadie fraction mineral  claim in Wellington camp. ,.  Louis Wilputte, representing the  Western Canadian Colleries, Lille,  Alberta, was here this week on business with the local smelters.  There is talk of a merger of the California, White Bear and Jumbo mines  at Rossland. The former is controlled  by Jay P. Graves and S. H. C. Miner.  It is the intention of the provincial  government to accept the surveys made  by the C.P.R. company, last summer,  in block 4,589 Southeast Koo'enay, as  final.  John Rogers, who was injured at the  Senator mine three weeks ago in the  premature blast that killed' J. Byrne,  has recovered sufficiently to resume his  duties'at the mine in Summit camp.  Richardson," John A.   Lvons,  .Wash.;. J. .Gorman,   Spokane,  ;' J-"'F-  Colfax,  shareholders in the Strathmore mine,  were visitors here last Sunday. They  were accompanied by Fred H.

It will  have a capacity of over 50 tons per da.3*.  Thos.Newby and Lee Mercer have  driven ������an 80-foot, tunnel on the Gloucester, claim in Gloucester camp since  last fall, and'expect to drive another  80 feet by Mayl'' The Gloucester has  an immense body of copper-gold ore.

He is anxious to know the  address of John ��urfiish, of Greenwood.  ,.    ���        *������  The*Hill' Crest Coal & Coke Co.'has  obtained a Dominion charter of incorporation, with $500,000 capital, and  head'office at Montreal. The incorporators are Rufus H. Pope, Compton,  Que.'; G. W. Fowler. M.P. Sussex, N.  B.; R. A.?Peingle, M.P.; M. P, Davis,  Ottawa;:' Wm. Farwell, Sherbrook,  Que.?and C. P.'Hill, Frank, Alta.  The number of men employed in the  Houghton district of Michigan is about  15,000. Of these men upwards of 5,000  are employed by the Calument and  Hecla company. ' Although the Calu  metiand Hecla'only employs about one-  third the.iuim.ber of men, it produces  nearly one-half of the output of the  district.  The coal-miners at Coleman have returned to- work.. The terms of the  agreement are said to be satisfactory  to both sides and a two year contract  has been signed. The schedule of  rates drawn up is based upon that now  in force in other colleries in the Crow's  Nest Pass. The strike has been on  since the 1st of January and the townspeople of Coleman are thankful for its  termination.  .Thursday afternoon a pretty good  sized blast was set off at the Rawhide,  mine, by which it is estimated that  from 2,000 to 4,000 tons of ore were  loosened up in the glory hole of that  1 property, supplying wo'rkfor the muckers for some weeks to' coirie, says the  Phoenix Pioneer. A large number of  kegs of black powder were used, the  blasting being in charge of. M. J.  Burns, who has been ou railway work  for the last 15-years. Supt. Collins  thinks this is the cheapest kind -of  mining yet devised in the Boundary.  In the recent debate on the Eight  Flour Smelter Bill, Mr. Brown (Greenwood) said that in the smelters of his  district about 18 per cent, of the men  worked eight hours under present conditions, 32 per cent, worked ten hours,  and 50 per cent, worked twelve hours  per day. The men engaged in the unhealthy part of the work were only on  duty eight hours in the Boundary  country, although he' believed they  worked twelve hours in the lead smelter at Nelson. The twelve hour men  were not working ail the time; The  employment was not continuous. It  wa6 simply a matter of being on the  ground. The fact that insurance companies accepted smelter workers as  ordinary risks with the exception of  seven or eight per cent., argued that  the employment was not regarded as  specially inimical to human life. Mr.  Hawthornthwaite contradicted himself  when he said the men had no redress  except through the legislature, and  that employers would work them  longer if they could do so. The workmen had protection in the unions. He  had no doubt that a great many smelters would closedown if this bill became law. -The smelter at Greenwood  had not paid one cent in dividends, and  the industry taken as a whole had lost  money up to the present time. The  proposed law would add about $45,000  to the payroll at Greenwood, representing an increase in the cost of operating  of 25 per cent., and this the industry  could not stand. The effect of the law  would be to divert the smelting business across the boundary only a few  miles distant, where there was no such  law in force? Moreover he feared that  if the smelters closed down now, by  the time they re-opened the men now  employed, would have been compelled  to leave and a new class of cheap.labor  possibly Mongolians would be introduced to take their places. For these  reasons he could riot support the bill.

The  second f urnace f^-a' duplicate of the  first, with a' capacity ' of 200 tons of  lead ore daily���is expected to be running March 15. The last of the machinery is on the road, and cold 'weather is the only thing expected to delay  operations.-  Electrician Cootes has Ix-en busy setting up a new 20,000-pound electric  motor for the electric tramway ot the  Nickle Plate mine This motor will be  the great mogul of the line, and will  have brawn enough in its shoulders to  perform any dutj- required of it from  yanking a sawlog out of the woods to  handling a train load of ore. The  motor formerly in use will henceforth  be employed only on the lighter work  of the road.  The Standard Oil company has just  declared a dividend of 15 percent, for  the current quarter From 1891 to 1895  this company paid 12 percent, a year.  Its dividends increased to 44 per cent.  in 1903 and they were 36 per cent, in  1904. The dividend for the current  quarter would indicate a present earning- equal to $60 on every share of the  stock, or a total of $60,000,000 on the  capitalization of $100,000,000. These  enormous profits on their face prove  that the oil trust is actually monopolizing all the profits of the oil business  which equitably should be distributed  to the fee owner, the operator, there-  finer and the dealer and also, incident-  ally, it is evident that a considerable  portion of this enormous profit is made  up from excessive prices to the consumer,  The Gold Bug mine which has been  recently incorporated for $250,000 and  wliifh adjoins the" Elkhorn mine on the  westtand within one claim of the Providence mine, is now being activey  developed by neans of a tunnel.- "This  tunnel will give, on completion, over  200 feet depth on the ledge. The ore  .assays'ifqrii.$50 to $300 per ton. It is  'the intehtionjof the directors to place a  limited amount of ?shares on the market at the exceptional^1-, low price of  20 cents per share, the proceeds of  which will be devoted entirely to the  "development of the property. When  one considers that the promotors themselves have practically.paid nearly this  price for each of their shares and the  whole amount being used in the development of the property and moreover  they being men of exceptional business  and mining ability, it seems unnecessary to speak about the merits of an  investment iu this company, Mr. F.

Notwithstanding the fact that it comes out  with some names very high in science  as sponsors, the American investor is  likely to have in "mind the pious sea-  water extraction fraud that was promoted in New England a few years  ago. The gold is in the sea water, but  so far its extraction has not proved  commercially practicable. The most'  most novel suggestion we have seen  along this line, which was to the effect  that the ocean liners should be so arranged that gpld from the sea water  would be electrolytically deposited on  the copper hulls. This is a better idea  than the one f'om London and infinitely better than the Maine scheme. In  all probability the idea will be capitalized at no distant date and everybody  can have a chance to gee rich by buying stock in the comprny.  0<K*K>00<>0<><><*K>00<><><>0<KH>0<��00-Ol  H.
