The Winnipeg Telegram's article on
the progress of the United' Wireless
Co. is too long to reproduce in full,
but the following extracts will shoAV
the completeness of .the' indorsation.
Officals of the Company however may
object to some of the statements as
being altogether too far within the
facts. .   The Telegram says':
"Wireless telegraph j' is noAv too well
and favorably known to require any
introduction to investors. It has become firmly established as one of the
great commercial institutions of the
day. The long and costly experimental
period has been passed and it is now
on a solid foundation and traveling
rapidly foward to a wonderful commercial supremacy.
/'During the last year this publication has received hundreds of inquiries
regarding wireless .-..telegraph companies and the advisability of investment in wireless telegraph stocks. The
great majority of these inquiries have
been about the stock of the United
Wireless company,-which 'appears to
be in the forefront of all the Avireless
organizations.- The inquiries con-
cerninsr this company alone refer to
investments amounting to , nearly
$600,000; consequently, the editor considered it of sufficient importance to
make a "thorough personal investigation of the affairs of the company;
its progress, standing and prospects,
and the result of this investigation has been most decidedly satisfactory. ��� ���

Examination 'of the 'Nickel   Plate
Group is Most Thorough.
The work of sampling the Nickel
Plate and Sunnysides mines which
has now been ' in progress . for some
three weeks or more is still going on
and is most.thorough. >
It involves the handling of so much
rock that at times over tAventy miners
were engaged breaking it down, Avhile
a corps of samplers1 are directing the
work and reducing the hulk of the
original samples' to.the' proportions required, and keeping track of same.   -
In addition to this, they are doing ��
lot of diamond drill work to determine
approximate values in quantity and
quality, of unexplored ground. The
diamond drill contingent arrived last
week, and will keep two drills - going
for six weeks or more.

If there was ever a time that called
for extreme care to prevent loss by
fire it is the present. Absence of rain
and high winds have been the leading
features of ' the weather experienced
this spring, and liberties that couler be
taken in other seasons with perfect
safety would now be a positive danger.
"The Bush Fires Act" was rneant.to
enforce caution on the part of ..those
who were themselves deficient in that
quality, but  the trouble   has always
been that there was no proper provision made for a rigid carrying out of
its requirements, and as a result great
damage was repeatedly being done in
direct contravention of the hiAv-without,
anyone   being   brought    to   account.
Again, the Bush Fires Act only prohibits the use of fire between the first
of May and first of October and permits numerous exceptions, such as farmers clearing land  <fec.    These  Avere
allowed to set out-fires, but  were  enjoined to keep them  in control.    But
it depends wholly on the season whe-
therthe months between May 1st and
October are the most dangerous, for
occasionally   May and June may be
safer months than April. , So after all
much lies Avith the   judgment   of the
individual, and to that appeal must be
made.     Meamvhile all   fire   Avardens
and constables should be most vigilant in compelling obedience to the law.'
Danny McEachern has been working for several Aveeks on'the Florence

The ground in BradshaAv's canyon
was thoroughly looked over by Mr.
Camsell last year in connection with
his geological examination of tho
camp. There he found both the
Nickel Plate series and the Sunny-
sides series of rocks in their corresponding relations although in the canyon
a mammoth fault had occurred, and
the fault \voirld in itself have much to
do with the existence of the'canyon.-.'

. L. H. Patten went up to the Golden
Zone on Friday last and found that
the shaft had attained a depth of 95
feet. The or;e~ is'incroaohing on the
dike and as it is much harder than the
dike the crew cannot keep up the
rate of sinking which they were doing
a feAV weeks ago.
Specimens of ore Avhich he brought
from the hottom of the shaft looked
better than anything yet taken out.
It is becoming much more silicious, the
matrix of the ore being a live darkish
blue quartz th.it begins to take on
much of the appearance of the: best
paying rock that was met with in the
old Cariboo at McKinney.

Coast  papers   indicate a   probability
that the Provincial Government'may
take decided action -by.way of encouragement.    The Province  a few  days
ago points also to a probability that in

Advices from   NeAv. York, say that
there is a'consielerable probability that
F. Aug. Heinze, who was deprived of
nearly all of his capital at the inception
e)f   the    recent  panic While   playing
against the Wall street game, may escape, prosecution.     The  "system" as
Torn LaAA'son dubb's it, had it in for the

Worse than this .criminal indictments
were found against him.
Since then Heinze has made some
money and will soon he a.ble to settle
the pressing portions of his debts, and
may escape all criminal prosecution
under the indictments. By a recent
order of the court, the receiver of the
National Bank of North America is
authorized to settle.the claims against
Heinze and discontinue theactions now
pending. The terms of the settlement
provide for the payment to the hank
of $41,169 due on a note for ��100,000,
and of a balance, of $121,190 on a note
for $200,000.

Mr.    Justice    Cassels     held     court
for the purpose of   hearing argument
in the 'case., of the  King v.  Burrard
Power   wrupany.     This    case   arises
upon an information by the attorney-
general 'for Canada   seeking   to   set
aside ii grant of a.   water record for
25,000   inches of   vvater   out of  the
Lillooet lakes and  tributaries of the
Lilloeiet river in  British Columbia to
the,Burrard Power company,' limited,
such grant being  made by the water
commissioners for the district of .New
Westminster assuming   to act under
the Water Clauses .'Consolidation  act
(B.C.)  being chapter  190 of  the  Revised   Statutes  of British  Columbia.
The contention of the Dominion  government is that the   alleged  grant  of
this Avater record.materially interferes
with the rights of the Dominion government in   the  lands  and  waters of
the "raihvay belt" granted to the  Dominion government by the legislature
of British'Columbia by the Act 43 Vict.
c.  11  (1880)  as  amended  by 47 Vict.
c. 14.    An injunction is also asked   by
the Dominion to restrain  the defendant company from proceeding   to perfect its alleged rights   under the  said
water record.     By   their defence  the
Burrard PoAver company and the province,   represented  by   the  attorney-
general, claim   that  the  Avater  privileges covered by   the  said  record are
not the property e>f the Dominion government. Mr. Justice Martin, to whom
the facts Avere referred for enquiry
and report, found that the. portion of
the Lillooet river in question is navigable, but he did not report that he
found that the Dominion's contention
that the portion of the river in question in this actiou was included Avithin
the boundaries of the "raihvay belt."
The defendants and the province ap
peal from the referee's finding that
the river is navigable at the point hi
dispute, and that the exercise Of the
company's record under the water*
grant Avould interfere Avith the fisheries in the liver.

Sat,,  'aspractical men is not to worry  her with  inquiries as to1 what  she is doing, but to, see that   we  build two ships for every one of  hers".    The British Gfbvernment  1ms adopted a precisely opposite  .policy.     It is. barely   building  one.to her one. ship, and   it  is  meantime    addressing    to   her  every kind, of timid entreaty to  be pleased to build not quite so  fast.    Such an attitude   is   irreconcilable with British   dignity  and honour.  Mr. Gladstone once said.> that  Ministries    rarely   represented  the feeling of the country.     If  the over-seas dominions  of the  Empire   would  learn  the, true  sentiments of Great Britain, we  hope that they will not look to  the'overwhelming figures of the  division in the House   of  Commons.    The majority against a  stronger      Navy      represented  nothing   but  machine  politics.  The  world  should  turn  for  a  real declaration of British sentiment to the enormous majority  of 3.948 for eight Dreadnoughts  at Croydon.   ' It   is  the country  against the  Commons,   and  if  the voice of party spoke in   the  Commons, none can doubt that  the voice of Britain has  spoken  at Crovdon.

Ministers, to defend  themselves and to prove their  programme adequate, were  driven to contradict their oavii  utterances of a fortnight ago.  To the nation tit large, and to  every reflecting man, as Lord  Bobert Cecil pointed out, their  naval programme bears the  plain imprint of a compromise.  It has been devised for Cabinet  convenience, for Budget exigencies. It has left out of sight  the one vital issue���������the supremacy of the British Navy and the  safety of the British Empire.  The best defence  that  could  be made for such a programme  and such a policy of  half-measures was offered by Sir Edward  Grey. Listening to him, one felt  at moments  that the speaker  Avas oppressed with tlie gravity  of the position.     But when  it  came to action he had  none  to  promise.       He  dweit at   some  length on a German declaration  made    verbally,    to   the  effect  that Germany litis no intention  of further accelerating her programme, and a  German  statement   that she will  not  have  thirteen Dreadnoughts complete  till the close of 1912.     But,  as  he himself reminded the House,  this declaration is not   binding.  It represents merely a pious intention.  The  German  assurances are  doubtless    well   meant.       But  the safety  of the British   Empire   must rest on  something  more   tangible     than     verbal  promises.     We would not   be  misunderstood    on this   point.  Germany has a perfect right to  build as many ships as she likes,  and to build them as fast as she  sikes. She means, as  we  know  from her published programme,  to  construct  eventually    fifty-  eight Dreadnoughts and Invinc-  ibles,  not   thirty-three   as Sir  Edward Grey appears   to  have  been  informed.     Our business  drawn.  every  public  "An appeal for party loyalty  is no substitute for   argument."  These words uttered by Balfour  ! the leader of the Opposition  in  the'British House of Commons  in   reply   to Premier Asquith,  contain a world of meaning and  will bear a heap of study.  .The  woi'ds were used by him in  the  debate on the  vote  of censure  motion;    and  those   who. . read  a summary of Asquith's speech in  which the Liberal   majority in  j the House of Commons (elected  three  years ago  wholly. 011   a>  domestic policy) were asked   to  vote down the   motion,  cannot  j but  say .that    Balfour's   short  j sentence Avas  both  a just  epi-  j tome of   Asquith's attitude  on  the question, and   a   fitting  rebuke to one who would sink the  patriot   and  statesman  in  the  politician to the  extent  which  Asquith  did.     But  how  often  have we seen the same thing in  Canada, both at Ottawa and in  provincial    legislatures   where  party-    lines  had  been closely  In    England    to-day  by-election    as  Avell as  meeting    shoAvs    that  Asquith   and  his folloAving  in  the House are at outs with  the  popular voice in their  management of the navy, and realizing  this as Asquith and his Ministry  must do they incur a grave responsibility in thus  over-riding  the    arguments    of    their   opponents who do voice   the  present sentiment of Great Britain.  In voting down Lee's motion by  means  of the  brute   majority  Avith which chance has temporarily favored   the  Government  they have betrayed a  trust  reposed in them by the people.  Now in Canada Ave might go  back  over  the  legislative    records of various parliaments to  show that too often   the party  whip has been used at the direction of premiers to  bring men  into line and vote down motions  that   their  constituents would  agree    with    but   the   list   is  too long.

In  singling  out  the  last we do not say that the government is much more to blame  than the opposition leaders  inasmuch  as  the  deliverance  of  tlie latter on the question in the  house fell very far short of advocating    the    decided    action  which    leading   men on   both  sides of politics declared for  in  various public meetings through  out  the  country, and   because  the    motion which the    house  finally   voted   on   was  a compromise  motion  agreed   to by  the leaders on both sides.

Pete Lorenzetto's barn on '.Brushy  bottom was burned on Saturday last.  The fire evidently originateel from a  spark from Bradshaw's new fallow  that was carried a long distance in the  fierce wind that blew up and down the  valley and set fire to a manure heap  near'the barn. The near proximity of  this latter- blaze soon settled the fate  of the barn especially in the absence  of anyone to leiok after it for Mrs.  Lorenze.tto and the children had gone  up to.Hedley.

For this latter purpose they took  a crock of. particularly rancid butter���������  so strong that they had to hurriedly  dash out of the harbor to escape being  summoned by the medical health  officer for maintaining a nuisance.

Indorses United Wireless  Continued from Pace One  "It is probable that   very feAV   corporations now before the .public  have  accomplished so much or  made such  progress during the recent financial  depression   as  this  company.     Since  Col. C.C. Wilson   assumed  the presidency of the corporation less than two  years ago it had expended nearly   one  million dollars in developing and fur-  ��������� tlidi'iiig its business interests.    At  the  end of the first fiscal year under his  management  the company had  met  with such phenomenal success that   it  was in.position to nay   a liberal  dividend.   However, it was wisely decreed  by  the  vote of  the  stockholders    to  employ its surplus earnings in extending its development,   putting  in   new  stations, etc.,   which   was  elone   with  such judicious effect that the pet earnings of the  company  at the present  time are very'close to forty thousand  dollars per  month.    It  vvoulel "appea  to the editor that by January next the  United Wireless Co. will be. in a , position-to pay at least five per cent on  the 'entire capitalization   of the company.   With increased earnings is certain to come increased stock  values,  and it would not be at all surprising  to see the United Wireless stock ciuot-  ..- ed at $100 a share or over by   the end  of 1910.   This statement is  based  oir  J   the fact that the company- now- holds  contracts, anel it appears to have busi-  ness assured anel practically controlled,  that should be suficient to eventually  give   the    company net earnings of  nearly five million dollars a year\  ��������� Future contracts should largely increase  this amount.    It is only a question of  a short time before wireless telegraohy  ���������will   be as common   throughout the  civilized world as the ordinary system  of telegraphy, and almost every vessel  on the oceans  Avill  be equipped Avith  the apparatus, and   in this-work   the  United Wireless Co. appears to have  the lead anel should reap  the bulk of  the benefits.  "Theextension of theUnitedWireless  Telegraph company'sservicednring the  last six weeks has been not only rapid  but very important, in the opinion of  those avIio arc Avatching the development of the company's commercial  business.  "A fine new station has been opened  on the roof e)f the NeAv Willard hotel  in Washington, where commercial business is being handled-"which is increasing in volume every Aveek. It was  from this station that the United company handled the press matter on Inauguration day and the night of March  4th, which gaAre to the world the only  neAvs of the ceremonies attending the  installation into office of President  Tuft. All telegraph wires- had been  prostrated by the storm of the night  before, and the wireless was the only  means of quick communication Avith  the outside world.  Contracts were signed last-Aveek for  the Avireless equipment of the Graham  & Morton Transportation company's  fleet of lake steamers plying betAveen  Chicago, Holland, Benton Harbor and  St. Joseph.. This contract included the  establishment of shore stations at  Benton Harbor, Holland and Chicago.  Other stations avi'H soon be established  at Buffalo, Duluth and other important  lake points.
