This   ;  preliinriiary  work   was   successful    in '  proving     the ore body to a vertical   '  de|<th of 2i)0 foot.   Additional capital  was then  required to beins the prospect (to a shipping mine and Mr. Liv-'  ingston went to  England in thc winter  of  1899  to  assist  in  the formation   of  a larger company.  This    was  cairied  through,  notwithstanding the  detring    inllunees of   tlie South Afii-  c'aii war.  Mr. E. C. Musgrnvo "Was then plaef  ed in charge of the mine. A three- j  compartment shaft was sunk and the ,  necessary equipment installed and by )  the latter part of 1901 sufficient ore '  was developed to justify the erection of a smelter.  This     necessitated further capital,  and  the Tyee   Copper   Company wns  .increased-   to\ 180,000 shares of ������\  each,  ������50,000 ol which was in actual cash and used for theCv.tio>)   of  the Company's smelter at    .\V*iith  andthe    installation    of     an    aerial  tramway, connecting  the    fine **ith  the Esquimau & Nanaimo   -   dvay.

From  1003 thc Tyee passed through      the  usual vicissitudes of other large copper mines.   Below the 300 foot level  a barren zene was encountered     that  extended     downwards   to the   1,000  foot and crosscuts  and   drives  failed  to     disclose the continuation of the  ore body worked so successfully     in  the levels above.    No  one connected  with the mine,   however, belie'.cd  an  ore body of such  strength and uni-  cpue character as   that   of   the Tyee  could   have    petered out at  such     a  shallow depth.

The Curfew Byla.w  is   to     be    a'llirmed, ' thc \Vcllingiton  hose  question, will  probably be' settled,  and  the street committee   has  one or two reports to bn'ng in.  ���������   The interior ���������f the council chamiher  badly needs  thc  attention of  a painter and  furnisher.   The hall has been  in   use for   over  a year,   and  is     not  yet   furnished.  This, of course,  is on  account  of   shortage of funds, but it,  would need a small expenditure      to  provide desks for the  mayor and aldermen  instead   of a <>cal table.     It  is anything but-.convenient, this shortage   of furniture,   and   a very   small  outlay would make the. council cham-  , ber  a lit.tie  more  comfortable.  CARIBOU ON       j  GRAHAM ISLAND!
