One of  the  most heated    of the attacks  was  made by     A.    Ii.

An  effort was made to   secure   from Fres.  ad--'Mitchell of- thc Mine   Workers,        an  the   expression   as   to   whether     ho     hold  Western   the   Ky.an resolution     to be in efftv.t.  do    like   This  resolution  was  adopted by    tho  position.   jidilTcrcnt.

They-, do anything along-those lines  Many quartz mills have been by them  erected in -tin's province, and half  a dozen big dredg-ing plants fjr  the Fraser river, besides machinery  furnished for many other plants.  Koine of these gold dredging 'plants  have run up to- the ������100,000 murk  or near ��������� it, the big dredge now in  operation at Lillooet, on the Fraser 'river was built under the supervision of Mr. Robert Hamilton by  his firm at the cost of near ������80,-.  000.
