The principal loss is  from fire vvlr'ch immediately broke out  and could not be coped with for lack of  water, the watennains being broken  ���by the earthquake. Over twenty of  the very largest buildings in the, .city  have beeu totally destroyed and an  equal number badly damaged. The  city hall costing 57,000,000 is in ruins.  The city ���sunder martial law and the  soldiers have been ordered to shoot  down theives caught in the act of robbing the dead. Twenty thousand  people have been rendered homeless.  The saloons have been closed.  The area covered by the flames up  till Wednesday at 4 p. ni. was eight  square miies. Buildings are oeing  blown up by dynamite to prevent fh-e  spreading.  Chasms several feet wide have opened in the streets.  13very railroad depot  in  the city   is  EASTER SOCIAL.  Pleasant Gathering in the Methodist  Church-Good Program.

The dinner was  well prepared and nicely served and  the tables decorated with plants and  cut flowers ;*nd glittering with silverware were a pretty sight. A large  number sat down and enjoyed the good  things the ladies had provided.  The musical program was also much  appreciated, and though the  rain kept  some of the most popular soloists away,  notably   the   Misses   Heiiwood,   those  who took part rendered selections that  \ entertained the audience, and   fully oc-  ] cupid the evening.

That department of the council  which has special charge of the streets  i.s busy, these days of fine spring  weather, making necessary improvements to the highways and byways of  the city. Ths rubbish, stones, sticks,  bones and refuse that had gathered  during* the wiijter months has been  raked into heaps and is being carted  away and the appearance of the streets  is being generally improved. During  this week the work has been proceeding on Long Lake street which is being widened at the upper end opposite  the residences of W. G. McMynn and  JO. W. Bishop. The bank in front of  the former is being excavated and removed fo fill up the breach below the  latter. Mr. Bishop has constructed a  sirong retaining wall at the foot of his  l..t, protecting both his property and  the public street. Mr. McMynn is preparing to do the same. When the work  has been completed ihe street will be  straighter, wider and safer.  LIND  CREEK WORK.  The superintendent of the water  works department has a force of men  at work . on Lind creek opening the  channel to bedrock. This is being-  done for the purpose of saving ah the  water and preventing any loss, from  seepage. It is estimated tiiat at present a large quantity of water is lost in  this way, and while the loss is not  noticed when the supply is large, yet  in the dry season it is a serious menace  to the efficiency of the system. Tt is  estimated that if all the water can be  saved twenty-five per cent, will be  added to the supply The' work is progressing- satisfactorily and Mr. Johnson, the superintendent, hopes to reach  bedrock without difficulty.

'  ''The copper producing industry has  been favored with unprecedented prosperity during the past year, aiid 'ahalf  and earnings have-been far in excess  of dividends paid. At the present  time treasuries aire overflowing with  cash. Every one of the big producing  companies has already increased its  dividend rate. Several new producers  have begun distributing profits, and it  is a foregone conclusion that further  large increases in dividends will o.cur  during the coming few months. The  result of this cannot fail to be a growing investment demand for the better  class of copper mining stocks.  BUY   GRANBY.  "As pointed out several weeks ago,  the technical situation is one which is  esp_ci_,lly favorable to establishing  copper  producers   rather   thau to new  development  enterprises  and mining  prospects. Three weeks ago I strongly  advised the purchase of Amalgamated,  Anaconda, Butte Coalition, Calumet &  Arizona, 'Calumet & Hecla, Copper  Range, Granby, Greene Consolidated,  Mohawk, North Butte, Osceola, Quincy  and Utah Consolidated. All of these  stocks are higher now than they were  theii, but I do not think, any one of  them is too high to buy for a still  further advance,  ���'Granby Consolidated directors have  declared a second dividend of 3 per  cent., payable May IS. The first was  paid January IS As stated some time  ago, I have reason for believing that it  is the plan of the directors to pay a  total of 12 percent this year, which  will be $1.20 per share on the present  stock-, or $12 per share on the new  ���stock. '���  "By August 1 the company will be  prepared to increase its j reduction 33  perjeent. It is estimated that the company will produce 30,000,000 pounds of  'copp-!- at a cost of 8 cents or less per  pound. If this product is sold at 18  cents per pound it will result in net  earnings of $3,000,000. This will enable the company to pay 12 per cent  dividends and add $1,400,000 to its sur-  plusthis year.  "This company has over 10,000,000  tons of ore blocked out in its mines, or  more than sufficient to feed its smelting plant far ten years to come. Its  present large earnings, therefore, will  not be needed for new development  work, -ind either further purchases of  new properties or larger dividends are  to be expected in the near future.

Hon..Sydney Fisher, on being: interviewed regarding: the reported prevalence of glanders in horaes in British Columbia, stated that the disease  had, during the past fail and .winter,  affected a considerable number ot  horses in Vancouver, and,the Okanagan Valley, ^hiie7_mall isolated outbreaks had been detected and dealt  with "in various other parts of the  Pacific 'province. He was of the opinion, however, that the disease wa. now  under control and that the measure*  adoped by his officers would shortly be  successful in achieving its complete  ���rdadication.  Questioned as tothe policy now followed the Minister said that, after  endeavouring: for several years to deal  . in an effective manner with constantly  increasing outbreaks of glanders, he  had found it necessary in 1904 to ask  Parliament to empower him 'to-order  the slaughter of all affected animals,  including those jrriich reacted to the*  Mallein test'without sticlw'irig- clinical  symptom- and to pay compensation  for them at the rate of .two thirds of  the actual value of the an hual when in  a state of health, such vilue, however  being limited in the case of ordinary  horse* to $150, and in of; the case of  pure bred horses to $30fl.  Previous to the inauguration of this  policy, asysten of testing.and r.testing  contact horses with mallein had been  tried for some time, but had been found  ineffective in .topping the'spcad of the  disease. Since the adoption of the  new plan satisfactory progress has  been made, and while the expense is  likely to be heavy for a few years, he  has no doubt that, by consistently  following the present methods, most  gratifying results will eventually be  obtained.   Th.jj  Byten pursued  is as  follows:-  When the presence of ^i^crdef^islie^  tected in a stable, the diagnosis is generally verified by the mallein test, although this is not iu all cases necessary. If the disease is shown to be  undoubtedly glanders, all horses which  Have been in contact with affected animals are submitted to the mallein test,  those which react being slaughtered,  while those which show, under test,  uo evidence of disease are, after a  short period of probation, released from  all restrictions. The infected premises are throughly cleansed aud disinfected, and the owners are recommended to take every possible precaution in introducing new stock.  There is a provision in the regula- j serions attempt is made by the authori-  tion. whereby owners of animals i ties to deal in an effective way with  react but ahow no c'.inical symptoms j outbreaks of glanders, and as a result  may on forfeiting all compensation, j a good deal of private testing is carried  retain reactors under quarantine for j on, the reactors being subsequently  subsequent tests. Such animals must ; disposad of as soon as possible. As  however, be slaughtered, if continuing   such horses are sold at a sacrifice, they  of them at the first available oppor  .unity, wtjen fallig into the hands -of  unsuspecting persons they frequently  introduce the disease among their  new stable companions.  Questioned as to thi efficacy of the  mallein test. Mr. Fisher staled that the  highest vetereriniiry. a'uthoritie. were  agreed that mallein was a niost reliable diagnostic agent, and that in at  least -.8 percent of the aiiimals tested,  it could be depended upon to demonstrate existence or non-exisence of  glanders. In proof of this statement  the Minister cited the experience in  Great Britain, where a strong effort  is being made by horse owners to  bring about the introduction of the  policy now followed in Canada, instead  of that now in force, which. provides  tor the slaugher of only such horses as  show clinical symptoms. Under the  latter policy, in spite of all effert., the  niimber of horses killed each year  shows a steady increase, no progress  whatever beiug made in the work of  eradication.  The following extract from a review  of the Report of the British Broad of  Agriculture, which appeared in the  London "Lancet" on July 15th last,  voices clearly the opinion of the best  authorities in Britain.  -''������'Glanders.is admittedly on the increase and ibis time "that some radical  measures were tak.en to control the  disease. "In 1894 there were only 502  outbreaks reported, but in 1904 these  had increased to 1529, and 2658 horses  were killed as glandered. More power  ought certainly to be given to the Veterinary Inspectors to test the in-con-  tract horses with mallein, as bj this  agent an almost infallible diagnosis  can be made within 24, or at most 48  hours. The expense, although ffreat  the first year, would not be exceesive  if allowed to spread oyer a period of  years, and where a preventable disease  which also causes the deaths of numbers of human beings each year is concerned, the cost ought certainly not o  beacons idered���too-^ s eriously--as^the  reason why it should not be taken  throughly in hand."  The most serious source of danger to  Canadian horaes lies in the continuous  ��� -h-  importation of infected animals from  the Western States. While inpe.tion  at the boundary is enforced,  many cases,  impossible to  existence of glanders without thejaid  of "mallein. Alhought considerable  inconvenience to importers wbuld  result, it would almost appear as if it  would be necessary to make provision  for the testing of all horaes introduced  from the other side.  In many   States   of   the   Union! no  prevails throughout the Dominion and  the.consequent greatly incresed demand  for horse flesh, are responsible for  many serious outbreaks in, districts  where glanders was formerly unknown  It is not at all uncommon forthe inspectors to find a chain of infective  contres which can be directly traced to  a consignment of horses originating in  some distant part of the country,aud  this in spite of the fact that the animals may have. Vnd.rgone careful clini-  cal>inspection prior to  shipment.  Referring to iijl-aged dissatisfaction  in British Columbia with the work of  his.officers, the 'Minister replied that  there had undoubtedly been some  irritation ahojiyji* pjr horse owers and  ethers who cppiplained that the  slaughter of diseased horses was not  iu all cases nesseesary, and that individuals were being subjected to serious loss and inconvenience through  having the animals  killed.  Mr. Fisher thought that this feeling  was largely due to the fact the people  ofBritish Columbia l*ad, fortunately  for themselves, never experienced the  terrible losses caused by outbreaks of  glanders, when proper sanitary mea  sures are not enforced.  It was therefore perhaps only natural  that.some people should think the present policy rather severe, althoug-h  .with more experience of the disastrous  ell'ects of the disease when left uncontrolled, they would have looked upou  things somewhat differently?  In some other parts of the Dominion  where people have for many years  been heavy losers through glanders,  trie system of slaughter and compensation is giving satisfaction, and intelligent horse owners freely express their  approval of the new arrangement.  The present policy was only adopted  after the most earful and serious consideration of the whole question, and  a fall'realization of the responsibility  which it involved.  Glanders is a most dangerous and  insidious disease, and with which one  cannot, especially under modern conditions, be controlled by half measures.  The system now followed in Canada  is approved by all highest veterinary  authorities in the civilized world,  while the'rate of compensation authorised by Parliament is much more gen--  erous than that prevailing in any other  country.  It is, of cource, impossible to enforce  sanitary measures of any kind without  inflicting more or less inconvenience  and perhaps hardship upon some in-  '. ividuals, but on the other hand, these  individuals, and, with them, many  others, would eventually suffer greater  I9SS if animals plagues were permitted  to spread unchecked.  i'V  (���-���  st 0-��l��terat&  We 'have   just   received   another   shipment    A  contracted  Liquid   -Extract   from   Malt and Hops.

The Minister further stated that a  considerable percentage of horses  respond slightly to the first test, sub  sequently cease altogether to react..  For some time veteiinary authorities  have been divided as to whether such  ceased reactors are really free from  glanders or not, but the concensus of  evidence otained by his officers during  the extensive testing operations which  hare now been carried on for several  years, is to the effect that many of  these horaes remain affected with the  disease in a latent form and are capable of transmitting it toother animals  in this way causing fresh outbreaks.  Such horses are "specially dangerous  ou account of the tendency almost  u variably shown by owners to dispose  are as a rule quickly picked up, and  there is no doubt that some of them are  brought into Canada either by persons  ignorant as to tbeir true conditions or  unscrupulous enough to run the risk of  having them pass inspection at the  boundary before the disease has deve  loped sufficiently to a_n.it of its existence being detected by ordinary  methods.  Another serious danger lies iu the  facility with which, under *.c...1eri)  conditions of transportation, numbers  of horses may be moved from place to  place. While iu communities where  new horses are but seldom introduced,  immunity from glauders may be long  enjoyed, there is always serious risk  in any place where the supply of horses  ia obtained from uui.ide pointa.

One is for the purposelof raising  the sum!of $10,000 for the purposeof extending the waterworks  sj'stem, -and the _ther is for the  purpose of extending the present  franchise of the Greenwood Electric Co., to-ensure them-the-privilege of using the city streets, as  at present, for a period of twenty  years. It .is,..only after long and  careful consideration that the  council have reached this stage  in their .efforts to safeguard the  interests1 of the citizens and to  promote. Commercial enterprise.  The trTembers of the council,  who have made a careful study  of the present water system, have  become convinced that the supply, though at present adequate,  holds out no promise of continuing1 sufficient under all circumstances, such as drouth aud.long  continued 'severe cold weather-'  Under the present system, with  the reservoir on Lind creek,- the  city stands in danger of a shortage during the. dry summer  season, and --.with the number of  services being continually increased the danger grows ste_dilv  Sulphur   Kintf.

To avoid alli'sjuch danger1, and  to provide a dual system, it is  proposed to construct a reservoir  on Providence, creek and extend  the present mains north to connect with the new supply, and for  this the money is needed. The  proposed improvements will not  only provide a much larger supply of water, but .-they will convert the system into what is  known as a dual one. The city  will then have a reservoir at both  the north and south ends of the  corporation and should any accident or mishap affect either source  the other would still be available  v ud no inconvenience ��� would be  suffered by the citizens. Repairs  to the water mains could also be  made without cutting off the .sup*-.  ply of more than the houses in  the immediate vicinity,, while the  rest of the. city \yould be unaf-  fected.7 A1'satisfactory supply of  water is one of the very iirst essentials to the welfare of'a" city  and this the council aims to sup-  ply,  ' The! other���-��� by-law, extending  the franchise ot the Greenwood  Electric company to use the citv  streets.for the carrying on of the  electric'lighting-business, is one  that should appeal to the public  spirit and enterprise of the citi-  zens of Greenwood. The electric  light company asks for au extension of their franchise as an  encouragement for them to erect  at Boundary Falls a power plant  with -which ii> generate electricity  to light the streets, business  places and private houses of the  city... They propose to expend  something like S40,000 on a plant,  which, though.it be outside the  city limits, is really a local industry. Among the advantages  the new agreement offers the citizens "is a reduction in the price  of light from the prices allowed  under the present franchise of  from 10 to 23 per cent. The company is also confident that, with a  plant at Boundary Falls, better  light can be supplied than is now-  possible. An important feature  of'the agreement' provides that  at any time after the expiration  of live years the city may purchase the plant at its proper  value as determined bv the ''Arbitration Act.'* The agreement  does not exclude other companies  from entering into competition or  the city from erecting a municipal  plant.

This is  likely to be undertaken as soon as the  outfits working on the present grade  on this side of the line get through,  probably within a month or two.'.'   -  The acquiring of the Oro Denora  mine by the B.

The committee iii charge of the free  library, on Greenwood street, met  Tuesday morning and discussed plans  for the future of the institution. There  is a feeling that'matters might be improved b}' au amalgamation with the  Miners' union reading toom, thus giving support to one instead of dividing  it between two. The present premises  at the disposal of the free reading  room are considered too small, and it  is thought that if the two can be  joined an all around improvement can  be made. That they are both filling a  need is evident from the number of  men who spend their leisure hours in  the  rooms,   and  if any   imprpyenient  can be effected the opportunity should  not be lost. A committee was appointed to approach the Miners' union  and discuss the matter.  The West Kootenay Power &\ Ligrht  Co. Takes a New Title, j  Grand Forks; April 20.���The. West  Kootenay Power _.

IN districts where the existence-of Glanders  , is suspected and especially in neighbourhoods where actual outbreaks have occurred  the adoption of.llii* following precautions by  owners of horses and -tliers interested will do  much to prevent the spread of the disease and  the establishment of fresh  centres of infection.  1. Horses or mules having a nasal- discharge  or other suspicions symptoms shonld not be admitted to livery .or feed stables'or yards, blaek-  stuith shops, church or school sheds, railway  stock yards, private stables or other places  where they are Jikely to, come into direct or  indirect contact with ahimals-bf the equine  species.  2. All stables, yards or sheds used for the accommodation of horses or mules should be regularly and frequently cleansed and disinfected  in the manner described below.  3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly,  and burning all debris, the interior should be  well goneover with hot steam, orboiliug water,  adding to the latterat least one quart of crude  carbolic acid to each five gallons after which  the entire surface shonld be thickly coated  with a thick solution of fresh lime wash, to  which crude carbolic acid has been added in  the above mentioned proportion.  Outbuildings, fences and tying posts, with  which infected animal" have been in contact  should also, when possible, be thoroughly  treatedin a similar manner.  All ordinary harness and stable utensils,  which have beeu in contact with infected animals or infected premises, should be thoroughly  soaked in a hot solution of crude carbolic acid  of a strength of one part to twenty.  Materials which might be injured by the  above Ire.itnieiit such as valuable harness,  -robes, cushions. e-c..->Y.hich_.hav_Jieeii_in_con_  tact with infecfi'oii should be placed in an air  tight room and fumigated with Formaldehvde,  after which they should be thoroughly cleaned.  4. Iu stables where outbreaks have occurred  or where diseased animals have, inadvertently  or otherwise, beeu stabled, even temporarily,  the cleansing and disinfection should be especially thorough and in Rticli cases it is safest to  remove and burn feed boxes and mangers when  of wood; iron articles can be rendered harmless  by passing them through fire or by immersing  them for some time in boiling water. All litter  from suspected animals should be burned or  carefiilly fenced until used.  5. Farmers and others should, whenever possible, avoid admitting .trange horses or mules  to the premises occupied by their own animals  especially of the same species. It isa good plan  to reserve an isolate.l building- for outside  horses or mules, but where, this is impossible  thev may be accommodated in cow stables,  cattle not being subject to glanders infection.  Such horses and mules should hewa'ered from  special pails, "which, together with all other  stable utensils used on or about them, should  be carefully clcaused aud disinfected before  being used for other Hnima's. Stalls occupied  *>.v strange horses or mules should be. well  cleansed and dlsiniected and, if at all possible,  left unoccupied for some time.  (���. When new horses or mules are purchased  in or from districts where glanders exists;, tli���>v  should, unless carefully tested with Mallein  prior to purchase, be stabled apart nud closely  watched for some time before being brought in  contact with other animals of the rquiue  species. '  7. It must be borne in mind that while nasal  discharge, or ulceration, enlarged glan.s, the  presence of farcy buds, unaccountable swelling  of the limbs and general iinthriftiness often  characterize cases of Glander.-. the disease  exists in many animals without, for the time  being, any external manifestation whatever,  the only means of detection in such cases being  the Mallein test, and that these occnltor latent  cases are in some respects the most dangerous  becanse unsuspected. Our experience shows  that it is possible for animals of this class to  convey infection to others without themselves  developing acute symptoms. It is therefore  olain that great caution should be exercised in  the purchase or banding of, strange horses or  mules especiallv in those districts where the  disease has become established.  S The carcases of animals dying from or  slaughtered as beine affected with Glanders  should, when possible, be burned nr. failing  this, buried at b-asi six feet beneath the surface.  9. Owner- of nremises where outbreaks have  been dealt with -bonld bear in mind that  Inspectors cannot recommend release from  quarantine nnl��ss disinfection has been'carried  out in a satisfactory manner and that compen  sation for  animals slaughtered cannot be paid  .CerHficjte of Improvement.

"On the feed floor the bins are ar-  arnged in a long double row, with a  track for the electric charging car* in  front of each row. Bins are also provided for coke and flux. Between four  and six electric motors hauling two  bottom-dumping charge cars each are  employed in feeding the furnaces, according; to the number in operation.  The empty charge train is run from  the feed floor to the ore bins, where it  is partially filled by a man standing nn  a long platform level with the top of  the cars, and operating a lever connected with the bin gate. After a  quantity of ore has been added the  train is run over a track scale and  weighed, when it is taken to the coke  and flux bins, where the correct amount  of fuel and fluxing ore is loaded. After  this the cars are again neighed, and  the train sent onto the feed floor.  "The cars, which run on a very narrow gauge track, are provided with an  extra s�� I of wheels mounted on the extreme upper edge of the wide, gondolalike body of the car. When the cars  reach the open end of the furnace these  extra wheels engage rails mounted on  the sides of the furnace, which take  the place of the regular track. The  charge is unloaded by means of a lever  operated from the ends of the furnace.j  ON THE FURNACE  J.T.OOR. *''7'  "When all eight furnaces are run-,  ning, the low^r floor of the Granby  smelter is an impressive sight. Each  furnace is provided with three slag,  cars, arranged two oti70ne side of the  secondary settling pot and one on the  other. All three can be filled without  the help of the locomotive, as one ou  the tracks to the settler is built ma  grade, so that the two pots can be  -hiftedby t'ravityr=-It=-tabes-the-three  slag cars about forty-five minutes to  fill; thus one locomotive can remove  th . slag from three furnaces.     !  "An overhead crane runs the entire  length of the furnace room, and  some  distance   into the converter building.  When matte is ... be tapped, thiscrane  carries a large pot to the properjpoint  above one of the furnaces, where it is  lowered into a pit beside the main settler,    When   filled,  it is taken to the  converter room   (this   room  is  in the  same level as the furnaces) where the  pot   is   transferred to a large 10-ton  crane running the length of the con**  verter building and some distance over  the end  of the   furnace room crane  The matte   is   then emptied injo the  converter.  CONVKKTKK  MACHINBKY.  "An interesting feature of this building is the automatic con verier, slag  cooler, The usual method of handling  this slag (valuable for fluxing purposes) is to pour it into molds on the  floor of the building, where it is is allowed io cool, and is then broken up  into pieces suitable for smelting.' At  the Granby smelter a machine consisting of au endless chain of small molds,  above which a pot of slag is suspended]  and gradually poured out, is used. A  stream of water is run over the tnolda  after filling, and by the time ih*-_l;ig  reaches a bin some distance above, it  is cool enough to. handle.  "An   automatic   tamper   is  used  in  lining the converter shells with  clay  and crushed quartz, and saves conoid  erable time over the hand process.  HANDLING THK SLAG.  "Three steam locomotives are used  in hauling out slag, between two and  five car* being taken to  the dump ou  OCEAN LINERS.  The New C. *V:&. Boats are Said to  Beauties.  According to Mr. Alfred Allayne  Jone��, president of the Alberta Agencies, Ltd., the new Canadian Pacific  Railway Atlantic steamships, the Empress of Britain and the Empress of  Ireland, are two of the very finest  things afloat. Mr. Jones, who has  spent the last two months in Europe,  passed through Montreal en route west  receuily, having arrived from Liverpool at Halifax, on the 3rd inst., by the  steamship Tunisian.after a somewhat  rough passage.  "Before sailing," said Mr. Jones.to  The Herald, last night, "I took the opportunity of going to Glasgow and  having a good inspection of the Empresses. Both are well on the way to  completion, although the Empress of  Britain is much more advanced than  the Empress of Ireland, as she is expected to sail for Quebec, on or about  May the first.  "Fairfield Company, in charge of the  works, have the Britain in the waters  of the Clyde, and while they are one  of the biggest of the shipbuilding  firms in old Scotland, and have turned  out many noted vessels, the two C. P.  R. boats are steamships of which they  may be extremely proud. They are  beauties. Th e Britain rides the waters  Like a duck, and, in its interior finish,  can compare with anything afloat, or  that sails from any port on this side of  the Atlantic.  "She has three series of staterooms,  and   the   third-class   accommodation-  are eq'us-.l to almost any of the second-  class in the best ocean  boats, in fact,  respect to ..the baths, closets, etc.,  m  she   is   in a   class by herself.     This  .truck me as being the feature of tbe  vessel.  "Carrying 1.700 passengers, she is  569 feet lor.g, 65 feat 6 inches wideband  70 feet from keel to boat deck. Stand  on St. James street and look at anv of  the high buildings���that will give you  "an idea of her height. One thousand  ,five hundred men are busy at work,  and will have her ready by May, easily.  The Ireland sails in June."  Another feature that appealed to Mr.  Jones was the heating arrangements,  unique in these boats. Six Thermo  heaters pump hot air into the rooms.  Just push a button and the room is  flooded with hot, dry air, a desideratum  on a damp ocean voyage. All the crews  are shut off from the passengers by an  iron bulkhead.���Adv.  ROSSLAND  REPORT.  The Dominion Geological Survey department wishes to inform the public  that a preliminary report on the Rossland district has been prepared by Mr.  R. W. Brock of this department;;that  it is how iu the printer s hands and  that it will, as soon as possible, be despatched, free of cost, to any bona fide  applicant in the Rossland district who  sends his name and address to the  librarian of this department.  A full report by Mr. Brock is being  prepared and will be put through the  press as soon as the maps and plates  are received from the engraver. The  preliminary report, meanwhile, contains a large amount of useful information. It deals with th�� origin of the  ore deposits, and with the chances of  their value in depth, and it discusses  the probabilities of other deposits being found Dutside the area now being  mined. It relates the methods now being employed, or proposed, and touches  lightly or. the question of costs and  profits,  \ll these subjects will be dealt with  more fullr in the bulletin now being  prepared, but it has been deemed advisable to publish the present preliminary report to meet the wishes of the  Rossland miaing public, who do not  care to wait until the map- and plans  ca.i be engraved.

Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happen'  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Among its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments. In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor.  BOUNDARY CREEK  TIMES  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do  its: full and complete share in the upbuild/  ing and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary district. It is not handle  capped in its work by any restraining ob/  ligations to any party, clique or corpora/  tion. but it is free at all times to rise up  and promote the best interests of the City  of Greenwood and its people. To do this  most thoroughly and satisfactorily the  Times must have the support and coopera/  tion of the citizens of Greenwood.  Every effort is being put forth to make  the Times the class of newspaper the  people want. Increasing attention is being  continually paid to mining news, especi/  ally of that nature that will interest those  employed in the work as well as those  whose capital is invested in the properties.
