at the Radnor forges, now the property of Messrs, Druniniond ol Montreal. It is comparatively low grade
running from 10 to 17 per cent, ol
peroxide or iron. It is within thirty
miles of the projected route of the
Canada Northern railway from whicli
a branch line will lie built to the
mines.
The Company's coal property Is
situated 25 miles to the south ou the
banks of the Saskatchewan river.
There is an ejght-fpot seam of (Ignite coal of about the same grade ns
that of Lcthbridgc. It Is excellent
tor ordinary fuel, and there Is an
abundance of charcoal throughout tho
country wilch will yield ample charcoal for smelting purposes.
Air, lll,ii'liiii|irc's report on the property Is favorable, and the company
will immediately proceed to development.
Mr. Illackmnrc wns greatly surprised at the general conditions ol
the country, Jlp (ravelled over a
.section about 200 miles In extent,
which is yet without railway communication, and yet nearly every section Is already taken up. Between
Edmonton npd Kprt Sasltnli'liewaii
the settlers arc almost exclusively
Canadian or American; this district
is closely settled and well cultivated,
On his return journey Irom Fuji Saskatchewan, within a distance ol 18
miles he met no 'lewpr that 15 teams.
Although thjs has been relatively
a bad year, the crops ill the district
have all liecn large, Oats arc easily
the best crop. Mr. Blaekmorc was
assured on good authority'that   Inj
Works, which, under Messrs. James
Free) and Andrew Davison, have been
so successfully conducted during thc
past three years. The firm have been
doing a general foundry business and
have not only secured an extensive
market here, in Cheinainiis and other
nearby points, but have .shipped their
products as tar- as Nelson. It was
tlie excellent results that have already been secured that brought about
the determination to change the company into a joint stock concern and
add the manufacturing 0I stoves. Every member of the present firm is a
practical man and all arc taking
shares in the new company. The
plant and buildings will be very
largely increased by this branching
out. The present building is 92 by
50 feet and tenders have lieen received, now lor an addition to this, measuring 111 feet by 5(1 feet for pattern
and chipping shops. Tenders arc also
living iirceivcd and will be let next
week for a new building 02 by 511

Conveniently, situated with the
railway tracks running alongside,
and facilities for. shipping by cither
rail or water, the company can receive raw materials and ship the finished product with the least possible
expense. Their pig iron will be purchased in tlie Old Country.
The field for the manufacture ol
stoves is very large, as may 'be judged from the fact that there is now
only the Albion Iron Works turning I
out such products in British Columbia, and there is not another stove
foundry between here and Ontario.
The imports ol stoves into British
Columbia are now valued at $500,-
000 a year; so that the wares which
the company wiil turn out have a
large market ready to hand. Another advantage that the company have
is the fact that the business now being done in foundry work is well established and has passed the experi-
inenlal sk&t.
The trustees of the new company
arc Messrs.    Geo. Thomson,   James
Frcel, Andrew Davison, W. Earl and

SIMPLY A BLUNDER.
A great deal of unnecessary nnd

where "tipping" is smh a rpcognlzeil
Institution, While lipping is hy no

aggravated by the lad, lhat those
who receive lips ale not content Willi

How Many People In Ladysmith?
A canvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
tire Pftily Ledger. It lias been suggested by some of tbe
') y'licss men that it would be of interest and value to the
con; ui.tfiilty to know how many people live in Ladysmith
and immediate vicinity, 'ihis means all ofthe actual residents within half a mile of the postoffice iu Ladysmith, exclusive of Chinese.
Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write down a guess of the number of
people our census,, which will be taken'with reasonable accuracy will show.
Envelopes will be given with the card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card iu ihe envelope and seal
it up; either hand it to the canvasser or lpave it at the
Ledger office. All guesses must be in during October; none
will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
Thc envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
giveu:
1. To the person who guesses nearest to the exact number of people living within one-half mile of the postoffice
(exclusive of Chinese) #20.00 in gold.
2. The person coining second nearest, f 10.00 in gold.
3. The person coming third nearest, $5.00 in gold.
If two or more persons tie for any place the money will
be divided.
This contest will be absolutely fair. No person in any
way connected witli thc canvass will either give out any information or be allowed to compete.

WHAT FUN.
Mr. Harry Lehr, leader of Newport
society, has again given a jar to tlie
jailed who imagine life scarcely worth
tlio while, says thc Seattle U'ost-Intc-
lligcncer. The. function through which
he created an oasis of gladness and
put some money into circulation was
a birthday party to his wife's doggy
There werc seven canine pels present, and tlicy were attended by five
liveried butlers. The mistresses of
the doggies were there too, and after the dinner they, with Mr. Lehr,
romped with the pets until they were
all tired out. The dinner to the doggies and doggesses was served in
courses, and was supplemented by a
birthday cake.
Thus Mr. Lehr sustains his reputation. He Is society's single ray of
sunshine when gaiety palls, once he
invited a pet baboon to a dinner parly. At another time he gracefully
went on all fours to retrieve stickri
thrown by shrieking women, ami returned barking like a dog.
There is but one Harry Lehr. No
other example ol splendid endeavor
and unmistnlicnlilir genius approaches
him. He has money, and puts it to
the noble use oi making a tool of
himself and Ills associates.

THE  SACRKl)  KLIOPIIANT.
The day    was in Siam  when    Ihe
lucky man who discovered a while elephant was raised to lite rank of ao.
bjlily, and  iu ease of capture,   very l
likely   was  given  one  of  the King's I
gross of daughters in marriage.   In '
the old days the catching of such an '
elephant was a signal for a   genaral .
holiday-making and feasting;    nobles
were sent to the jungle to guard it, ,
and ropes of silk were considered the
only suitable    tether for nn animal ,
entitled    to such deferential     treat--,
ment,    When My Lord, the Elephant
had  rested at tlie end of his   siiteu
tether  suflieieiitly   to  have     become
reconciled  to his uncoil)passed    con- |
ditton and respectful man, he    was
latin  in    much     glory  to Hangkok,
where, after being paraded and saluted, he  was     lodged in a specially
prepared palace;   lie was sung to and |
danced  before, given exalted   tiljei,
shaded by golden umbrellas and   dec- (
nratal wilh trappings of great value, j
■ n fact the while clopttab'l was once]
made a great deal of, but never really worshippid, as some wiiters have
deelated.        It is   still  very highly
prized by  the  Kjng because of    Itg   ,
mrily, aud though capture (s   unus-
ual enough to creale excitement,,yet
