ever, if six men can be secured to
serve the city as aldermen till this
trouble is cleared up, or until Chief of
Police Flood and Police Justice Williams resign. Chief Flood is still
acting, and as Nightwatchman Mc-
Doiigall is still on shift for the city,
there arc plenty of so-called guardians of the peace. Judge Williams
still holds the fort, contrary to the
wishes of a majority of ihe taxpayers
of Uboeiiix, and Mayor Rumberger
stands with him. The lieutenant-
governor and Premier McBride have
been bombarded with letters regarding the matter from several citizens,
aud it is now up to the government
to make the next move, as it is unlikely that another election, under
the present regime, will serve to secure a citv council.
Attorney-General Wilson has taken
a hand in the municipal squabble ut
Phoenix. He has written to City
Clerk Matheson asking him to send
ihe necessary declarations re the
resignation of the entire membership
of the city council. After ten days

forwarded, when the attorney-general
will probably take steps to order a
new election.   It is doubtful, how-

The school trustees havo decided

The Volcanic Bond
Has Been Extended to the First of
July Next.
Over 220,000 Tons of Ore Shipped From Boundary Mines
During the First Quarter of 1904---Miscellane-
ous Mining Notes.
The Volcanic Mining and Developing company, of Marquette, Mich.,
which acquired a bond on thc
Volcanic property, located ten miles
above this city on the North Fork,
together with twelve adjoining
claims, last November, has secured
an extension of time on the bond to
July 1st next. The present bond
expires on the 1st of next month,
but owing to the fact that for over
three months it has been next to im-
possible to carry on drilling operations on account of thc heavy snowfall, they were unable to accomplish
the amount of prospecting and developing work anticipated when the
claims were bonded, hence an extension of time was asked for and
granted. The owners of tho Volcanic and those interested in the adjoining claims were quite willing to
grant ' tho extension asked for, as
they recognized the fact that the
company lias not been able to obtain the desired results owing to the
stoppage of work from theabove-
meiitioned cause.
As far as ean be learned, the promoters have great confidence in the
property, and there is every reason
to believe that at the expiration
of the bond the deal will go
through in a satisfactory manner to
all concerned. The promoters of the
company, which is organized under
the laws of the state of Michigan,
are Dr. F. Harkin, Dr. O. G. Ynung-
quist and Alex Mead, M.E., of
Marquette, Midi. These gentlemen
liist visited the property iu July
last, and so favorably impressed
were they then that they immediately proceeded to get a bond on it,
with the results already stated.
* *   *
Lately the ore shipments from the
Oro Denoro have been rather light,
for the reason that some changes are
being made and additional machinery has been installed, but in a
hurt time it is expected to get matters iu shape so that the shipments,
which have been running about 15
oiis daily, will be increased to 250
tons per diem.

It is understood that work will he

he has substantial financial backing

TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 190-1
Torontonians have put aside  nil
expectations of enjoying balmy spring
weather this year. Just as they hnd
it ligured out that this delightful
season was due, and that they would
be dallying in the lap of summer in
n very short time, the worst April
siow storm in thirty-five years swept
their ealoutions to more frigid zones.
They hnve now concluded "to postpone their dream of summer until
the thermometer reaches 90 in the
shade.
The higher the altitude thc purer
the air is supposed to be, but the
rule does not always hold good. A
notable exception is thc zephyrs that
swiep down the mountain sides
from the Phoenix police circles.

without this wonderful Hicks Almanac and Prof. Hicks' splendid paper,
Word and Works. Both are sent
for only $1 a year. Word and Works

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Sceuie Line of the World,''
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair ears,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining cor service, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
eaeh in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. Xo more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent con be found
than is provided by these excursions.

THE   TORONTO
DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE=A=WEEK
.FOR    ONLY...
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices hns heen made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have ,
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News nt the price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lend the publishers to
mnke such a reduction in price.
But just ns the dollar magazine hns
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast nnd ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price nt which it is sold, but
mainly upon tho intrinsic merits of
be paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. .Such a combination presents ninny unique features
—our BOmi-weoklV giving you all
the home nnd district news, nnd
thc big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events nil over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News,' or if you would like to see
the paper lirst, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.

Once, on the flrat of April, Henry
Ward Beeclier found in his morning ma.l
A letter containing only the w< ids "April
Fool." "Well! well!""he is snid to hnve
remnrked; "I have received many :i letter where a man forgot to sign hi*?
name; this is the first lime I ever knew
of a writer signing liU name and forgetting to write n letter."
One of the best things Oscar Wildr
ever -wiid was his answer to a certain
rather humdrum pott, when the latter
Wflu complaining of Ihe neglect with
wlilch his lines were treated hy the critics. "There seems to be a conspiracy
of silence against me. What would you
ad viae me to do?" lie enquired of Wild''.
"Join it," was the consoling reply.
The late Justice Armour, whom Mr
A. B. Aylesworth succeeded on the Alaska Commission, in a certain case was
once disputed by a wrongheiulcd young
lawyer, who snid, when the judge remained firm against all his arguments:
"Well, sir, if that's law I'll go home and
burn my books." "Hadn't you better,"
said the judge, "go lumie and read
them!"
A turn of tbe political wheel bad
placed the English Conservatives on top
and lowered the Libenls. Not lung afterward a young and presumptuous mem
ber of the ruling government, who wot*
sitting opposite a member <»f the defeat
ed party at a London dinner-party, too!*
that time to say: "Well, Mr. Blank, how
do you like being an ex?'' "I should
like it better if we had been swv-'dci!

Professor Ernest Huffout of the Cot
nell Law School told an amusing gtorj
not long ago of a freshman who wa*
called from the way of knowledge befort
his year was oui. The students hod bee:
answering questions in moot-court, and
tho subject under discussion was a cow
which had been killed by a railway train
Each student was required to fill out n
paper on the case. "This brilliant youth,'
said Professor HuffcUt, "wrote with all
seriousness after 'Disposition of the Carcass': 'Mild and Clentle.'"
Glen MocDonoUgh, who wrote the lib
retto for the comic opera, "Babes In Toy
land," was sitting in n New York cflie
recently with Victor Herbert, the com
poser, when a waiter approached to take
his order. The waiter smiled nt Mr.
MacDonough, and said: "You don't re
member me, do you? I used to sine in
one of your companies." "1 remember
you very well," mid Mr. MacDonough
Are you surprised to see me here as a
waiter?" asked the other. "Not a bit,*'
replied the librettist, cheerfully; "you
know I have heard you sing."
During the contest for the Presidency
of the United States between Buchanan
and Fremont in 1850, n country boy
turned un at one of the Fremont meet
lngs witli o number of brlndle pupf
which be offered   for  sale  ns "Fremont
Sups," Borne days Liter n gentleman who
ad bought one saw the same boy at n
Buehnnon meeting selling the same pup-,
which were, he claimed, of the Buchanan
persuasion. "But you told me," objected
tbe purchaser, "thnt these were Fremont
pups." "Yes" retorted the boy, "that
was before tbey got their eyes open."
