The Granby mines having for ever  passed the .prospect stage, a further  step has been taken to place the company operating these properties on a  better basis in connection with the  payment of regular dividends. A meeting of the shareholders of the company is called for December 1st to raise  the par value of the stock from $10 to  S100 a share. As the tnit-.es. are now  on a ��� permanent paying basis this  change is thought desirable. A further reason is advanced ,to the effect  that the broker's on the Boston stock  exchange charge S12 SO for selling 100  shares of Granby, the same commission as would be paid if the par value  of the stock was $100 instead of $10.  Discussing this matter the Boston  News Bureau says :  " When the Granby company increases the par value ol itsshares from  610 to SlOO and reduces the number of  its shares from 1,350,000 to 135,000  it will probably immediately start  dividends al the rate of $6 per share  per an num.  " The company is now earning at the  rate of about SI per share upon its  present 1,350,000 shares, or $10 per  share upon its proposed new capital of  155,000 shares.  "On the present market value of the  shares, [)}<, the new stock would have  ;i market value of 95, and Granby interests claim that the present earnings  of .S10 per share justify this price ;  that as a matter of fact when the company is able to operate its full battery  of eight furnaces interruptedly, it  should be able to show earnings on 15  cent copper of between $13 and $14 a  share.  " The Granby company has this year  increased its mineral area in British  Columbia over 100 per cent and has  started in to systematically open up  its new proper!ies which show copper  bearing rock from the grass roots, as  do most of the Boundary district copper properties.  " When its properties are thoroughly  opened and the company's power facilities  are  increased  to prevent any  recurrence-of-the-troublesincitrred-this  summer by reason of insufficient  power to operate its smelter full force,  it is not unlikely that the Granby company will again materially increase its  smelting capacity, and the company  wiil have. 15.000 shares of .treasury  stock which it can dispose of for this  purpose, probably at a new par value  of $100 per share. This, however, is  something for the future."  PROVIDENCE APPEAL.  Decision of Mr- Justice  Irvinjr Reversed by Full ECourt.  Word has been received here from  the c<mst that the appeal in Madden  vs. Diamond has been allowed by the  full court. This case originated out  of the difficulties between the local  shareholders in the Providence Mining  company and the Chicago shareholders.  At a meeting ot the board of directors  it was decided lo buy the Diamond  fraction, adjoining the Providence, for  1.G00 shares of the Providence stock.  Mark F. Madden, on behalf of the  Chicago shareholders, asked to have  tlie sale set'���aside, and Mr. Rudolph,  another Chicago shareholder,, made a  similar application in connection with  another meeting at which only local  directors were present. These and other  cases came before Mr. Justice Irving  at Nelson, who found for theplaintlffs,  or Chicago interests. His decision  in the Diamond case has now been  reversed. Owing to recent purchases  of shares by the Chicago owners, the  decision will not affect the control of  the "company, but the local people  theroby   escape'a  heauy   bill of costs.  Xo infonnaloti has been received regarding the Rudo'ph vs. Maceyrase.  Victoria Times Deals With  Further Railways.  MIDWAY    AND   VERNON  Will Ae a Factor in Large Scheme of  Railway Development.  In the Victoria ���Times of Saturday  there appears an article dealing with  the question of furlher railway extensions in the province. The article is  palpably an errbr in some of its details. It is quite true that those associated with Messrs. Arthur and Cain  in the construction of the Midway and  Vernon railway are also interested in  a Vancouver Island charter which may  connect with a Port Angeles railway  scheme in which they are also interested. It may bo possible that the  Harriman railway system is backing  up these enterprises with the object of  securing northern connections and for  the purpose of invading Hill territory,  but it is not at all likely that the Spokane and International railway will  ever figure in the scheme. The Spokane and International is being built  by D. C. Corbih and his associates to  connect with the C. P. R. at the international boundary line. To do this  the C. P. R. is building a branch line  from the Crow's Nest railway at Yak  to the international boundary line. As  Yak is some 200 miles east of Midway  and separated by two mountain ranges  it is not at all probable that a prolit-  ������.ble connection can be made between  the two. Asa matter of fact the Midway and Vernon railway has no connection with the C. P. R. tip to the  present, nor is it being constructed  with and understanding with that railway company. C. P. R. officials believing that it was a Great Northern  enterprise felt justified in showing  their hostility. They attempted to  take advantage of the road by rushing a crossing on the lands of the  Midway and Vernon. The. Midway and  Vernon may, be extended northward  and southward, but if this is done it  will be not with the assistance of the  C. P. R.. but in spite of its opposition.  The Times says in part:  Messrs, Arthur and Schmidt, so  prominently connected with the trans  portation project referred to are also  back of the Midway and Vernon,which  is now being ouilt. Just what an independent company wanted of an iso-  lated-line4ike-like-thut of-the-Mtdway^.  and Vernon has likewise been the cause  of considerable speculation. It has all  along been felt that that road would  have to have an ou'let either by way  of the north or by the south. One outlet it was said would be found, and it  is reported that it is by the Spokane  and International, which has all along  been understood to be the means in  contemplation by which the C.P.R.  was to get into Spokane.  It would therefore appear as if the  relations of the company which Messrs.  Arthur and Schmidt represent are not  to be antagonistic to the C. P. R., but  that mutual running* rights ov<;r feeders of each may be exchanged. For  that mason it is quite probable that  should the scheme looking to a railway  line from Vancouver Island be carried  out the new company would only extend the E. & N. to the north end bf  the Island, coining to a mutual understanding'for an exchange of running  rights between the two companies concerned in providing a railway for each  throughout the whole length of * he  Island.  This evidence of friendship   towards  ItheC. P. R. prompts the  belief in well  informed circles that   the corporation  i really back  of the  Port   Angeles and  I Vancouver   ��Island   scheme   and    '.he*  j Midway and Vernon and   Spokane ami  | International line is   the Chicago. Mil-  1 waukee ana St. Paul,  which ir. <r.;di!i'd  with seeking to reach the Pari tie. This  ! is supposed to have  secured  terminals  at Taeoma. and  Seattle,  and   if  these  ': surmises  b_* correct   also  sock   to get  ������ them at Victoria, the tiist   port   of call  (Concluded on  Page 2.) BOUNDARY OREEK   TIMES.  MORE EXTENSIONS.   -  (Continued from page 1.)-...������'  from the Orient, in   the advantages of  which the C. P. k\ would also share.  In the past the connection with Chicago for what are regarded us the Hill  lines, the Great Northern and the  Northern Pacific has been by means  of the Chicago, Burlugtoii & Ouincy,  which connects with the: Northern  Pacific at Billings.  The Chicago; Milwaukee & St. Paui  has naturally chaffed at the advantage  tuns obtained by its rival, and Burlng-  t-r.i, and is now-believed to be reaching  for the Pacific coast by means of the  new line which has heon projected.  The relations between the Chicago,  Mi'waukee & St. Pain and the C. P,:R.  have always been very friendly, the  former being reported to hold considerable stoc i< in the latter line. It is but  natural, therefore, that these two corporations should work to each other's  advantage iu competing .with their  mutual rivals, the Hill lines.  Iu connection with the Midway and  Vernon franchise il was stated some  weeks ago by one closely connected  with the scheme, that the line was  likely to have vast connections in different directions. It wns indicated  that it might be continued north of  the C. P. R. and also westward to the  coast. It was then suggested that any  Great Northern line 'built would probably find a rival road equipped.  The proposed extension of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul to the  the coast has given all the ports in the  United States from Portland, Ore., lo  Bellinghani, faith that they would each  be selected as the mam outlet in the  Pacific trade. Indications now point  to the fact -that Victoria has not been  overlooked by the projectors of the  road, and its chances are probably  brighter than any others on the Pacific coast.  company acquired an interest in the  Tacoma smelter, which was sold this  year to the American Smelting and  Refining company, the Bunker Hill  company's share being SI,500,000. The  Federal Mining and Smelting company, which is now controlled by the  smelter ti ust, has paid $1,000,000-in ,  dividends since January 1st. The;  company is operating the Standard,  Mammoth, Last Chance and Tiger-  Poorman mines, and last week purchased the Morning,and You Like  mines at Mullan from Larson and  Greenough for S3,000,00O. The Hercules company, operating the mine of  this name at Burke, is not incorporated  and the exact amount of its dividends  is not made public. It is known to be  about 348,000 a month. The same applies to the Morning and You Like  mines. On account of lack of water  and the option held by the Federal  company these properties have not  been worked at their full capacity.  They are said to have paid in dividends about $150,000 during the ten  mouths of this year.  Experience in pyrite smelting indicates that the production of a certain  proportion of metallic iron may carry  into a pure iron matte, gold value that  otherwise would not be saved.

Word conies from Grand Forks that  free gold has been found in consider-  on Hardy mountain in a 14 inch vein-  on the Mabel N. claim. This claim is  owned by John Homey who has prospected the district for the past fifteen  years.  The directors of the War E" gle and  Center Star have decided ou an amalgamation. They agree that it would  permit of a more profitable working of  the mines. They have decided to sell  the War Eaglr stock to the Center Star  at a rate of ten shares- of the Center  Star for fifteen of the War Eagle,  will be a general meeting on November  23 to sanction the deal. .  The Nelson News describes the biggest lead smelting furnace in the world  which is being manufactured in Nelson by the Kootenay Engineering  works' It has been ordered for the  Canadian Reduction works at Trail,  Already the company has some very  very large furnaces, probably equal  ^orMiearty^equa-Hn-size-to any-others=in-  use anywhere* The one now ordered  from, and in process of manufacture  by the Kootenay Engineering works,  is half as big again as the largest one  now in operation   at  Trail.    It is to be  24 feet long and 5'4 feet wide and will  have 33 wind openings. It is expected  that it will lake between two and three  months to complete.  The Granby Consolidated has just  placed another order for machinery for  the main three compartment working  shaft at Phoenix. This order is for a  double conical drum electric hoist of  250 horsepower, the order being placed  ��� with tin* Jtmckes Machine company of  Sherbrooke, Que. According to the  contract Ihe hoist is to be shipped in  three months, and will be the largest  hoist of its kind in this section. It  will probably be early spring before  this machinery is installed and ready  for operation. The order just placed  is in addition to that placed last week,  which included a I'lake-Fairell 32 by  42 ore crusher, a duplicate of the two  crushers now in commission at the  company's mines, and a 250-horse-  power variable speed Westinghouse  electric motor to drive the eoist.  For the first ten months of this year  nearly^ 56,000,000 in dividends have  been declared by the mines of the  Coeur d'Alenes. Idaho Up to'the first  of November live mining companies  '< have declared dividends amounting to  55,705,000, which far surpasses all previous records of the district for the  same length of time. Of this sum the  Bunker Hill and Sullivan mine a I  Wardner, now claimed i->i Vie the largest  silver-lead mini; in tiie world, has paid  5*3,955,000.

Greenwood Liquor Co  GREENWOOD, B. C. (4  TALK ON NICKEL PLATE  Superintendent' of. Mill   Speaks   of  y ?? I Medley- .?.?;  ..-While rival railroad comp-?nies are  fighting in the courts and occasionally  in the open for rights of way in Southern British Columbia, one of the richest mineral districts in the province is  being quietly and steadily developed.  The delay, in securing- transportation  facilities 'is undoubtedly retarding the  growth of mining camps into towns  and cities, and it has made the cost of  mining supplies and/operations very  high, but it has 'not' prevented the de  velopment and profitable operation of  one of the richest and biggest gold  mines in America.  '-'.'���The' Nickel Plate group in Hedley  camp, the property of the. Daly Reduction company,-has been worked  steadily for two, years. During the  past.year regular shipments have been  made to the Everett smelter. Concen.  trates have been shipped for treatment-  The sand has been cyanided in the  company's own mill at Hedley, and  the/bullion has been shipped also to  Everett, .. / ���;;M"''  ? TThe croute-from (< Hedley, to Everett  and-o'iher'coast points' is ari extremely  roundabout one". Everything- in the  way of���p.J*qv'��iQns, mining machinery  and'supplies is taken -in, and the out-  putput of the mines sent out, by way  of -Penticton, - the ,Okanagan lake,  Sicamous and the main-'line ot the C.  P R. to Vancouver.  ,The distance from Hedley to Penticton is" 45 miles, and the cost of packing  is $20 a ton for every kind of freight.  It will readily be seen-that under such  circumstances only very rich deposits  can be worked at all and the best only  by companies with abundant capital.  The Nicke4]Plate group consists of  fifteen claims of which- only two have  yet been developed, the Nickel Plate  and thei Sunnyside. The amount expended to date by the' Daly Reduction  company is between $2,000,000 and  $2,500,000. In return for that amount  the company, in addition to all that  has.already been shipped, has in sight  more than $4,000,000 worth of ore.  /A". H. Brown, who is retiring- after  two years' service from the superin-  tendency of the company's cyanide  mill, spent yesterday in Nelson on his  way to the coast. To a repaesentative  of the Daily News, Mr. Browa said :  *��� In spite of all the' difficulties it has  had to contend with from the beginning and appnrently will still have to  face for some time, Hedley is all right.  ���r'\ When the country is opened by a  railway and supplies and machinery  can be taken in at reasonable rates a  large number of very rich mines will  be operated, and Hedley will become  the premier camp of the province.  "So far the Daly company has done  nearly all the work that has been done  in the camp. Its operations are on a  very lrge scale. Of -the fifteen claims  contained in the Nickel Plate group  only two, the Nickel Plate and the  Sunnyside have had any development  done on,them sofar. A;..  ..""The- mine is at an elevation of  5,850"������feet.Tand the camp 1,470 feet.  The ore is brought down by a system  uqfj2'Jram%'j=elM  per'''"centy'arid a gravity tram, interrupted iu the?middle, with a grade  probably averaging 36 per cent.  ���'The ore is concentrated in Hedley  and?.the'-'concentrates are shipped to  Everett. The sand and. tailings are  cyanided and the bullion also shipped  to Everett. ��� Everything is shipped by  way of Penticton.  ���'The amount of ore actually in  sight ? It is hard to say, certainly  more than $4,000,000 worth. The ore  varies greatly in value, but it is ah  high grade.  "I don't know very very much about  the mines in the district other than  those owned by the Daly company.  Some splendid samples have been  shown, and it is reason aole to suppose  that many other properties are also  very rich and extensive, but they are  mostly in the hands of men who cannot afford to operate on a large scale  under present conditions. Thej' are  waiting, with" what' patience they cau,  for thelong promised railway connections.  " There'are probably about 300 peo-  people -in. Hedlep. Quite a number  have brought in their families.

R.  against the Midway and Vernon  railway, and imputing to them  petty and discreditable motives  in that connection. We are reliably informed that the C. P. R.  succeeded in laying their track  across the Meyerhoff property  without any hindrance or trouble  on the part of the promoters of  the Midway and Vernon, and we  regret that even a clipped statement in the Vernon News should  have placed the company in a  wrong light as to motive or  action."���Vernon News.  ���Greater-1 oyal ty���th an-this^even  the Canadian Pacific Railway  company could not expect from a  corporation journal. Such solicitude for the fair name of a railway company should be exploited  in a more righteous cause. Is it  any wonder there was no hindrance or trouble ? The Canadian  Pacific Railway company again  adopted brute-force tactics and  rushed their mob into private  property against the protests of  the owners, who are law-abiding  citizens, and who did not adopt  methods that are insulting to Canadian law. Even when an arrangement was made with the  Canadian Pacific railway officials  to discontinue work pending a  settlement of the difficulty, the  Canadian' Pacific deliberately  violated the contract and, during  the night, attempted to do those  things they had agreed not to do.  i! The more the acts of the Canadian Pacific Railway company in  connection with the V., V, & E.  right-of-wav and the Midway  and Vernon crossing are considered, the mere one wonders  why a big and powerful corporation that is a national institution  should wantonly destroy its prestige by such petty methMs.  ronto Globe pertinently suggests  that the authorities should take  such action as will prevent a recurrence of the disgraceful substitution of mob'law for British  justice in connection with railway  enterprises in this- country. The  Globe says :  " Reports regarding a conflict  between railway laborers at Midway, in Southern British Columbia, show the need of immediate  and decisive'action on the part of  the authorities. We have no  room in Canada for any such disturbances, and the men who are  responsible should be made to  ser<*e the purposes of such a lesson as will free the Dominion  from all such dangers tor years  to come. It would be worse than  useless to punish the ignorant  laborers tempted into a conflict  the cause of which they could not  understand. In their innocence  they naturally followed and supported their leaders. The ig-  noranceon which the guilty parties seem to have 'played ���������was the  real source of the danger, and  that it did not lead to a carnival  of murder is due to fortuitous accidents. We have many examples  from continental Europe of the  results of releasing and inciting  ignorant passions, and the railway men who are prepared to  make use of such means to further  their financial interests should be  held to a strict accountability.  " This is not a matter to be  lightly-passed over=and-forgotten.  with the cessation of the violence  that disturbed the public mind.  Not only the crimes actually committed, but the possibilities of  passions let loose, must be taken  into account. The torch of the  incendiary is none the less crimi-  nol because the fire does not become a= conflagration. The matter should be thoroughly sifted  and, the guilty parties brought to  trial. Canadian, justice may be  slow, but we must see that it is  sure. Slow let it be, if necessary,  for this is a matter too serious for  haste. If it takes time to discover the real instigators of the  conflict the time will be well  spent. If they are allowed (o  escape it will be a standing disgrace to the Dominion and a  direct incentive to others who  may see a chance of furthering  personal and financial interests  by a criminal use of the ignorant  strength of foreign laborers."  staff. She is honest, straightforward, with the courage to lift  the profession to which she belonged for a quarter of a century  out of the mire'of snivelling sveo-  phantry. Her reputation as an  educationalist is not only national  but international. She succeeded  in inculcating in the boys and  girls under her charge some of  those splendid qualities with  which she herself is so richly endowed, and had she been allowed  to continue-her good work she  might have succeeded, through  the rising generation, in rescuing  Victoria from that mossbackism  to which its residents cling so  affectionately. But the board of  school trustees in their wisdom  dismissed Agues Deans Cameron;  The primary reason for the dismissal is as characteristically  Victorian as the dismissal itself.  An individual named Blair made  wholesale charges of dishonesty  against pupils in Victoria and  Vancouver schools in connection  with certain drawiug lessons.  Miss Cameron alone had the  courage to defend the honor of  her pupils. She did this so effectively that the board of trustees evidently thought her dismissal was necessary to maintain  th status quo in the city of Victoria. We hasten to congratulate  Victoria on its board of school  trustees and upon .the dismissal  of Agnes Deans Cameron.  atttBtffflmamm^^  o=*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr5**  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  CF*  CF*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  e!

COWARDLY  MENDACITY.  The fight for railway competition in Southern British Colum-  dia was objectionable to the Canadian Pacific Railway company  and to the Canadian Pacific newspaper organs. It was particularly objectionable to the Vancouver Daily Province,' whose  editor .and alleged proprietor  knifed those who rescued him  from obscurity in order to become  chief mudslinger for the Canadian Pacific Railway company.  Since the railway fight at Ottawa  last session the Province has  never lost an opportunity to  malign the members from British  Columbia because they stood for  the best interests of British Columbia. Having exhausted every  other method of abuse, last Monday.,, there appeared a lengthy)  editorial denouncing the British  Columbia members because they  are not wealthy men. It is the  kind of denunciation one would  naturally expect from the editor  of the Province. It is not so long J  ago since he himself was poor���  before he sacrificed principle in  order to become the creature of  a powerful railway corporation.  The member for ' Yale-Cariboo  is particularly fortunate in Being  poor, and also in having incurred  the enmity of the Canadian Pacific railway and its organ. The  cowardly insinuation contained  in the following extract from the  editorial referred to is an indication of how the C. P. R. and its  organ feels towards one who did  his best to secure a railway for  Southern British Columbia. Here  is what the Province has to say :  "But the most shining example  which this province can produce of a  member who has suffered in pocket by  his acceptance of a seat iu the parliament of his country, is the representative of Yale-Cariboo, , Mr. Duncan  Ross. A comparatively unknown  figure except in his own locality until  the electorate of that interior riding  insisted upon him giving the benefit of  his large ability to their public affairs,  Mr. Ross was compelled by the surrender of private business to narrow  his expenditure to the meagre allowance of $1,500 which his country paid  him prior to the last session. With  this, he found it impossible to continue that large but unobtrusive aid to  great projects in the Boundary eountry  which had before enjoyed the benefit  of his recognition, and he was compelled altogether to abandon his assistance to the many benevolent interests which had previously thrived  under his especiat care. Can it be  wondered at that under the circumstances Mr. Ross should have estab-  li8He^_arraiHaTOe^'f6r~the~prbse"cution'-  of an immense commercial and industrial undertaking with an alien promoter in order that his reputation for  philanthropy should not suffer complete eclipse, and if he made his party  and the government parties to what  must appear a defeat of the interests  of the people of British Columbia,  surely he had a sufficient excuse in the  parsimony of the country and his  suprem v necessity."  The references to Senator  Templeman and the other British  Columbia members are equally  mendacious. With the introduction of mob law in the Boundary  and cowardly itiuendo in its newspaper organ, the Canadian Pacific  railway is using the only weapons  it knows how to handle. This  once po^ erful corporatioa is fast  becoming an object of pity.  SCISSORS AND PASTE.  A serious accident occurred at the  Granby smelter between 8 and 9 o'clock  this morning. A small piece of steel  rail lodged in the small ore crusher,  clogging -it. In their attempt to remove ihe chunk of iron, Foreman  Frank Hutton and H. H. Spinks used  a long steel bar as a pry. When the  crusher again started the spokes of  the wheel caught tl-e bar and hurled  it with terrific force against the right  side of Mr. Spinks' face, drushing the  cheek bone and splitting the ear. Mr.  Spinks was rendered unconscious by  the blow, and. was immediately removed to the cottage hospital and  placed under the care of Dr. Kingston.  At 6 o'clock this evening he. had not  regained consciousness, and it is  feared that his injuries may prove  fatal. Mr. Hutton had a very narrow  esGape, the iron bar almost grazing  his face. After hittirig Mr. Spinks  the missile was hurled a distance of  about fourteen feet, when it struck a  post, making an indentation in the  wood almost large enough to hide a  man's hand.���Grand Forks Sun.  While the cessation of the publication of the Nelson Tribune may have  been somewhat hastened by the departure of Mr. Houston, the real cause  is not difficult'to understand. The  field in Nelson is not large enough to  afford legitimate support to two newspapers and one or the other was bound  to succumb unless kept in existence by  subsidies or other, support for partisan  or other objects distinct from the  legitimate sources of revenue for a  newspaper���subscriptions and advertisements. Nelson is not the only  place in British Columbia where the  newspaper business is overdone. While  journalistic .enterprise is to be com-  mende.d if well directed, we fail to see  why the merchants of a town should  be compelled to advertise in every  newspaper that'some one may see fit  to establish, or people be expected to  double or treble their subscriptions  because one or two new journalists are  eager to enter a field already fairly  occupied. There is only a certain  fund available for advertising ' and  subscriptions? It is in the interests of  both the newspapers and their patrons  that the number of the former should  not be unduly multiplied and while  being an unnecessary burden on the  'community, only obtain a precarious  existence.���News-Advertiser.

It is a section of a geological series, composed  throughout of fhe same material, as  shale, limestone, sandstone, coal, etc.  The stratum may be subdivided into  beds, of which there may be many in  in a thick stratum. The bed may  again be divided into layers of which  there may be stveral"in one bed. A  stratum indicates a uniform condition  condition of deposition during its formation. When strata are folded and  the tips of the folds worn away, and  later other strata deposited upon the  eroded or truncated edges of the older  strata, the two series are said to be unconformable to each other. When  strata are inclined instead of horizontal  the angle of inclination from the horizontal is called the angle of dip, while  the direction which tha edges of the  inclined strata makes with a horizontal  plane is called the direction or strike.  The intersection of the stratum with  the surface of the land is called the  outcrop, and the strihe and outcrop of  inclined strata agree in direction whenever the surface of ihe land is hori  zontal.  The word Tonopah is Indian, aud  means water brush, a desert shrub  whose presence  points  to  moisture in  . Word has been received here from  the coast that the appeals in Madden  vs. Diamond aud Rudolph vs. Macey  have been allowed by the full court.  These were two cases originating out  of the difficulties between the local  shareholders in the Providence Mining  company and the Chicago shareholders.  At a meeting of the board of directors  it was decided lo buy the Diamond  fraction, adjoining the Hrovidence,for  1.GC0 shares of the Providence stock.  Mark F. Madden, on behalf of the  Chicago shareholders, asked to have  the sale set aside, and Mr. Rudolph,  another Chicago shareholder, made a  similar application in connection with  another meeting at which only local  directors were present. These and other  cases came before Mr. Justice Irving;  at Nelson, who found for the plaintiffs,  or Chicago interests. His decisions  have now been reversed. Owing to  recent purchases of shares by the Chicago owners, the decision will not af-  the control of the company, but the  local people thereby escape a heauy  till of costs.  Greater care should be exercised in  fastening- caps to fuse. Carelessness  in this work is responsible for many  miss fires with their subsequent dangers. Caps should be crimped with  tools provided for that purpose in such  a manner thut the fire in the fvse will  not be choked, and water will be ex-  ud.deNeedless to say the piactlce  of "crimping it with your teeth" is  foolhardy and reprehensible.  a In. connection with the state of affairs that existed between two big  railway corporations at Midway, we  are lead to wonder why two such companies were able, or allowed, to set at  defiance the statutes pertaining to law  and order. Why two large .bodies  should be allowed to face one another  in what was practically battle array  certainly demands elucidation. And  if bloodshed and murder (yes, it would  be murder if any had been killed), had  resulted, who would be responsible?  It is, we think, only another instance  of "One law for the rich, and anothe  for the poor."���Enderby Progress.  The power of Niagara Falls has been  variously figured out by scientists.

The hundredweight of Great Britain  and the United Statea contains 112  pounds, and the ton is reckoned at  2,240 pounds. This is known as the  '���long" ton. In several states the ton  is by law 2,000 pounds. This is known  aa the ''short" ton. United statesjlaws-  make the ton equal to 2,240 pounds  when not otherwise specified. There  is also a metric ton ��� of 2,04 pounds,  which is employed by Germany and  othea foreign countries.  The inventor of the thimble is not  known. Copper and silver thimbles  are said to have been found in "-he  excavations at Herculaneum and it is  known that the Chinese in early ages  used the device for the protection of  their finger tips. It is estimated that  in the manufacture of silver thimbles  lu. the United States alone fully $100,-  000 worth of silver is consumed yearly,  representing a production of 125,000  thimbles.

Where it is desired to measure the  flow of a small stream with a fair degree of accuracy, a good plan is to  make a weir-across it with an opening  or notch for the water to pass. The  weir can be made of {planks. When it  is couvenient. to use a single board,  select one that is long enough to reach  across tbe stream, resting irf the bank  at each end. Cut a notch in the board  sufficient in depth to pass all Ihe water  to be measured, and not more than two  thirds of the width of the stream in  length. The bottom of the notch in  the board should be beveled on the  down-stream side; the ends of the  notch should also be beveled on the  same side, and within one-eighth inch  of the upper edge of the board, leaving  the edge almost shary. A stake in the  bottom of the stream several feet above  tee board or dam should be driven  down to the' level of the notch in the  board, this level being easily found as  the water is beginning to spill over the  board. After the water has come to a  stand and reached its greatest depth,  a careful measurement can be made of  the depth of water over the top of the  ���take'. Such measurement gives the  true depth of water passiug over the  notch or the board, the curvature of  the water in passing would reduce the  depth, giving the improper measure.  Although,  where  accuracy  is  not re-  " quired, such a method will give a fair  estimate of the quantity of water; in  all cases it is best to make the measurement over the stake.
