A vast amount of interesting data
has'been compiled by G. 0. Buchanan, president of thc Associated
Boards of Trade of Eastern British

is as follows:    '-.

is to be 84 per ton. This rate is now
in effect. The other rate is made by
the Northern Pacific, in connection
with tbe Great Northern, via the
Adrian cutoff, from points along the
Washington Central bnnch. Although tbe distance from points on
this branch to the coast is much
than from Republic, the rates
are higher. From Coulee City,
Hartline, Elmira, -Wilbur, Creston,-
Davenport, Reardan and Medical
Lake the rate to either Tacoma or
Everett is $5.50 per ton. This also
limits the rate to ores of no greater
value than $100 per ton. Both
these rates apply only to carload lots
of 30,000 pounds minimum.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 2!, 1904
Mayor Hammar has announced
his intention of insisting on a reduction in the salaries now being
paid eity officials, and also a reduction of the city employes, He is of
the opinion that one clerk in the city
office is sufficient at present to ensure efficient service, and that one
policeman ought to be able to maintain peace and oider. The expenses
of running the electrical department
of the city, he thinks, should also be
curtailed. He favors a reduction in
the salary list of about $3000 per annum, and thinks that this can .be
done without impairing the efficiency
of the service.

Mr. ABhcroft is very enthusiastic
over the resources of the country
which the line will pass through,,
and sees a big traffic awaiting tho
road.
There arc vast areas ol fnnii lands
in a high state of cultivation, fine
fruit farms and great stretches of
ranch and range on the western side
of thc divide, which, added to the
mineral resources of tho West Fork
^country, will afford a paying business for the road from the start,
A branch line seven miles in
length will run from the south end
of Wood lake to Kelowna, one of the
picturesque garden spots of the west.
THE RECORDS
The following item is from the
New York Banker, published in
/ Wall Street, which claims to be a
*iast master in finance. The paper
is filled with advertisements of cheap
mining stock, guaranteeing dividends directly. Its mining news
sometimes looks queer:
In Greenwood district there are
six smelters now inactive operation,
reducing 4000 tons daily, and it is
snid this production can easily be
doubled by spring. The force of
miners has been increased. Properties that were looked upon as mere
prospects six months or a year ago,
have  since" developed  into paying
MIDWAY & VERNON R. R,
Albert F. Ashcroft, engineer, of
Greenwood, has returned to Vernon,
where in company with Robert Wood
he has been taking up the work of
the Midway <& Vernon railway. Now
that a start has been made on this
undertaking, so momentous to the
country lying between the Boundary
and the Okanagan, the work is expected to be vigorously prosecuted
to a completion.
The plans are being prepared for
filing with the government, and the
work is to be carried on continuously
to its finish. Financial arrangements
are being perfected in London, England, and the early spring construction work will be hurried forward.
The route of the railway as decided
upon will be as follows:
Beginning at Vernon (railway depot Sbuswap & Okanagan railway),
the route will follow the east side of
Long Lake creek; cross at the foot
of Long lake; follow the west side of
Long lake to a natural causeway
known as the "railroad," following
such causeway between Long and
Wood lakes; thence along the east
shore of Wood lake by rising grade
via Black mountain, crossing Mission creek eight miles above Gallagher's and thence along south side
of Mission creek and through the
valley of Hydraulic creek to the
divide between Kettle River valley
and Okanagan valley. The distance
from Vernon to the summit is 50
miles, the grade in no place being
more than 2 per cent. The pass that
will be utilized to get across the
divide is 4300 feet altitude. From
the summit the road will reach the
West Fork valley by easy descent,
touching Beaverdell at a distance of
30  miles from the summit, or ap

WHY GO EAST
Over the 6un-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through thi
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 "Scenic tine ofthe World,"
.the only transcontinental line passing through Salt I-ake 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
distitjet routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist Bleepcrs, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each, in cfiurge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his gueBts. No more
pleasant and inex]>ensivc means ol
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande
Lines, No. 124 Third Street, Portland, Ore.
Under the Ice.
Captain Joseph La Barge, one of tha
Mrly pilots of the Missouri River, wns
noted for hla courage and during. In
the winter of 1834 he experienced the
following adventure, which ia recorded in
the "HUlory of Steamboat Navigation on
the Missouri Biver," by Mr. H. M. Chittenden. He had occasion to cross the
river, which waa frown deep. There was
a path across, which ran between two
large air-holes through the Ice. The
weather was extremely cold, and a blus-
lard had already begun.
Captain La Barge wrapped himself
In a blanket coat, held tight to his body
by a belt, and was armed with a rifle,
tomahawk and knife.   He felt confident
of crossing all right, for the distance
waa short, and he knew the way so well
that lie felt as if he could follow :t

It wat in any case a reckless performance, considering the existence of the
air-holes near the path; but La Barge
was not given to fearing future danger*,
and forged boldly ahead. For once his
confidence deceived him. All of a sudden he plunged headlong into the river.
He instantly realized that he was in
one of the air-holes, but whioh one? If
it was the lower one he was certainly
lost, for the swift current had borne
him under the ice before he came to the
surface. If it waa the upper hole, he
might float to the lower.
He toon rose to the surface and
bumped the overlying ice. Sinking ant)
rising again, he bumped the ice a second
time. The limit of endurance was almost reached, when suddenly his bead
emerged Into the open air. Spreading
out hi* hands, he caught the edge .of th-
ice. He held on until he could draw iii
knife, which he plunged- into the ice fni
enough to give him something to pu!
against, and after much severe and perilous exertion drew himself out. He hail
stuck to his rifle all the time wiiliou.
realizing the fact, and came out as fullv
armed as when he went in.
But now a new peril awaited
him. The storm was at its heigh:
the cold intense, and Ms clothiiv.
was drenched through. The ball
which he had received had no:
chilled him much, for the water wat*
warmer than the air outside, and hi*
exertions would have kept him warn
anyway, but out in the wind the chance
were that he would freeze if he did noi
quickly reach a fire. Hastily recovering
hie bearings, he set out anew, and hail
the good fortune to reach the post with
out further trouble.

DAILY NEWS
; AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been 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 at the price of tl.OOa
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction iu price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at 82.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
thc home and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events ail over thc world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will

the storms and weather in 1904,
without this wonderful Hicks Almanac and Prof. Hicks' Bplendid paper,
Word and Works. Both are sent
