The Vancouver Province is thc lat  i  e3t   "paper   to come out   with an ed-  itorial article advocating Mr.   Smith  for the position   in the/following Ian  guage:  ��������� ''The matter of   a successor to 'Mr.  Preston is 'one      which   is desurviing  of the most careful  consideration   o>f  the    Dominion cabinet.

The Richard HI.-mine at one  lime made regular shipments of ore  to the Crofton smelter, but was,  lliroiiejli, unfortunate circumstances,  forced to close down.

"Tbe Tyee mine, adjoining the  Richard HI. property, has been constantly developing their ground to-  waid the Richard III. and it is a  well known fact that recent, developments have proven the ore bodies to  exist almost up to the line.
