I Western Float  GREATEST MARINE  DISASTER KNOWN  The Titanic steamship struck an  iceberg off the Sable Islands in the  Atlantic ocean on Sunday night  and over 1,200 were drowned including some of the richest men in  America. The Titanic was the  largest and most luxurious steamship, in the world. The boat cost  about ten millions and was making  its maiden trip.' The craze for  speed was probably the cause of  the-disaster, the greatest in the  history of the sea. There were a  few Canadians on board, but none  from Greenwood as far as can be  learned. The list of third-class  passengers wa3 not published in  the daily papers.  THE ROUTE CHANGED  in the Presbyterian  church next Sunday, April 21th,  7:30 p. m.

The terminals ' will, be at  Midway in the Boundary district  and Hope in the Lower Fraser  Valley. The Fraser River will be  bridged at Hope and connection  made with the main line of the C.  P. R. Construction is in progress  west of Midway near the summit  of the west fork of the Kettle River  and west of Penticton on Okanagan  Lake. A branch line has already  been built from Merritt in Nicola  Valley to the headquarters of' the  Coldwater River.  From Osprey Lake, sixty miles  west of Penticton, the revised line  will follow Five Mile Creek" and  Similkameen River to Princeton  and thence up the same river to  the Tulameen River and thence  up that stream to the west fork of  Otter Creek to a point two miles  from the place where the Merritt  branch will tap the main line.  A survoy party will be placed in  the field shortly to revise thc location between the junction point  and the summit of the Hope  mountains at the headwaters of  the Coquahalla River which flows  down the Fraser slope. A contract for the construction of tho  line for that portion of tho road  lying between the junction and the  summit will be let within a month  or two as it is intended to start  grading work long before July 1st,  the date fixed under the agreement  with the Provincial Government.  No action will be taken in regard  to the section between the summit  and Hope until the Railway Commission decides as to the merits of  the applications of the Kettle Valley and tho Great Northern Railway for the approval of their respective location surveys.  The main line of the Kettle Valley system will tap all the coal and  metaliforous campB in tho vicinity  of Princeton.

THE CARMI ROAD  The Penticton Board of Trade  is using every effort to   have   a  wagon road built from-that city to  Carmi.   The executive committee  of the Board says: ' "We went  thoroughly into this matter with  Mr. Shatford.    We urged the necessity   for   the   immediate   construction   of   this   road,   on    the  grounds   that   it   would open up  some thousands of,acres of good  hay growing lands, 5,000 acres, of  which had already been purchased;  also that in   all   probability   the  first three or four miles could immediately bo put to use in hauling  a large tonnage of machinery and  supplies for the Penticton power  plant; and finally, that the Carmi  end of tho road would pass through  a richly mineralized country,  awl  (Continued on Inst piiyu)  .vi!'S������  i .-.*���������  *���������   '-V  ���������Vj!-  ' - <I  "41  I   ,     4  'I  J ;  .<-?

THE   LEDGE  Is.locatcd at Greenwood, B. C.,.and can be traced to many parts of  the earth. It comes to' the front every Thursday morning, and  believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. It believes  in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works'of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.  The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  thc county of Bruce. To tbe United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance. ' ,,  R.   T.   LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD, APRIL IS, 1912.

Si'i'i.vo would smoll as sweet by  any other name.  An honest man is always hated  by cheap rogues.  As a rule the less a man has, the  less ho grumbles.  take that task. As statesmen are  few, and politicians plentiful in  Canada tho latter class might take  a pointer from Bnrko's remarks.  LrAits and  hypocrites are  still  fond of warming church pews.  Put a bf-ggar on horseback and  ho will ride ovor his former companions.  Hope springs eternal in Grand  Forks, when the Kettle Valley  railway is mentioned.  There is plenty of cash  in Nel  son,  although the future of   the  city is largely built upon paper.  Tnis year the B. C. Government  will need a bunch of. detectives, to  keep the grafters and their camp  followers from grabbing too much  wagon road pie.  In the shape of wagon roads the  B. C. Governmenl will buy many  a gold brick this year. The peoplo should demand a rigid inspection of all public works.  People who buy goods at a store  that does not   advertise run  big  chances of paying superior  prices  for  inferior goods.    The merchant  in these modern days who does not  advertise   deals  principally   with  ignorant people,   who do not, or  cannot read.    The wise and intelligent class make money by reading ads.    They keep posted on the  constant   changes   in   styles   and  prices, and that is why the mailorder houses do such a big business in communities where the business men are principally dummies.  me, tho Christian Scientist wants  to read a book to me," Flies want  to tickle my nose, Fleas want to  bito me, Cats want to rub up  against my leg, Bees want to sting  me, Bears want to - eat me, Ticks  want to bore into my skin, Jailers  want to lock me up, Soldiers want  to kill me, and Undertakers want  to bury me.  So I run tho gauntlet. Everyone takes a whack at inc. Therefore, here's my hand to the Funny  Man, who has but one desire, to  make me laugh.���������Dr.{Frank Crane.  ���������The Slocan Record remarks that  the venal press is often found in  the great centers of population,  seldom in the smaller communities.  Thieves congregate whore there is  something to steal.  We should have our best and  most honorable men in the legislatures aud parliament; but once  in a while we see men aspiring for  these positions in this great Dominion who should be mucking in  a mine, or looking out of a barred  window.  Tnis is the ago of free publicity;  and almost every mail brings us  sugar-coated    advertising   matter  with the suggestion that our readers would be delighted to read the  dope.     They   might be,    but   we  have chased ads too long to allow  deadheads -on the cushions.    Our  business is publicity, and we give  enough of it away to local people,  without opening the gate and  letting the world tackle thefree lunch.  We notice that many editors are  fooled by this disguised advertising,  and,' give   it   a   place   In   their  columns.    Such    editors   have   a  blank spot in their upper stope,  and should be feeding chickens on  a hen ranch,  instead of pottering  around the lever..that moves the  world.    They   are    the   kind   of  scribes who get short-changed at  the circus, and they seldom have  Press and Religion  The following extract from a remarkably well-written editorial in  the Vancouver Province should interest our readers. It is curious,  by the way, how valorous some  contributors to the papers (in  the  correspondence colmnns) become  whon they have the shield of  annonymity:���������  "The fact of the matter is, the  daily press ought not to be a  vehicle for religious controversies.  The various sects have their own  special publications for the furtherance of their particular beliefs and  for demonstrating the errors which  they effect to perceive in the  principles of other bodies. It is to  these publications that, such communications should be sent. The  proper function of the daily press  in its attitude toward religious bodies should be to modify, aud if  possible eliminate, prejudice, and  as far as can be harmonize opinion  in the interests of general good  citizenship. . .  The age, too, is ono of broad and  of broadening tolerance. < The  great intelligent public of -today is  TnE Hon. George Peel said that  liberty is that spirit which, in  politics,    repudiates    absolutism,  respects tho minority, and   weighs!away, any more than a grocer can  the protest of a single conscience give you a sack of sugar for telling  money enough to buy Easter bon  nets,  a cold  bottle,   or a stack of in full sympathy with the privilege  blues.    If it   were not for such  journalistic dummies the free publicity schemes   now flooding   the  country would soon cease, because  few fish very long when their bait  is treated with Bilent contempt.  Owing to high prices of wages  and supplies few papers are making any money, and the editors  cannot   afford  to   give, their   ads  with care. Some politicians iu the  great west might profit by pasting  thi'j paragraph on a type-writer���������  wo mean the mechanical one.  The Slocan Record wants to  know why Bob Green loft the  provincial cabinet. Perhaps somebody lit a cigarette on Kaien  island and Bmoked him out, or he  may have been called out to take a  drink and lost the key. There are  many ways to get out of a cabinet,  provided you are not chained to the  floor.  It was onco said by Burke that  a disposition to preserve and an  ability to improve taken together  would be his standard of a statesman. If our countrymen entrust  us with power, it is in the spirit of  those words that we should under-  him that he is a good fellow.  Thinking Themes  The man with the purest and  most Christian purpose by nature,  is the Funny Man. He has but  ono desire���������to make ono feel good.  Surely a aim. He is the most  laudable friend of man.  Everyone has some sort of design upon me.   The Tailor wants  to put his wares on my form, the  Hatter wants to get one of his lids  upon my head, and tho Shoemaker  to get his leather on my feet, the  Barber   wants to lather me and  scrapo me, the Dentist wants to put  his buzzar in my mouth,  the Surgeon longs to get mo unconscious  and come at rne with  his knives,  the Bootblack wants to polish two  of my extremities, and tho Mani-  of the individual to the possession  of   his own convictions   as   long  as his principles aro not in conflict with the rights of  his neighbour or with the good of society.  The day. has gone by  when   there  is persecution for conscience sake,  or when men are to be condemned  as tho enemies of their species  for  holding to this or to that form  of  belief.    Nor   is   credible   by  tho  o ducated public of such a country  as Canada that millions  of mankind   whose   public  and   private  lives are a daily example of good  citizenship, should be banded together for the support of an institution whose aim is the destruction of civil and religious freedom.  Wo shall find inside and outside of  one church,  as we do inside and  outside   of   another,  men  whose  purpose are not good and whose  lives are not moral, but from any  sane regard of the achievements on  behalf  of   mankind,   whether   of  Protestanism   or   Catholicism,  it  can not be denied that the aim of  both'is in tho same direction���������tho  betterment of tho world at large.  **In men whom  men condemn as  I find so much o'f goodness still.  In   men   whom, men   pronounce  divine,  Where Mothers Fail  Some one has said,that the day  her son is born a mothor begins to  hate the girl he will wed, meaning,  of course, that-from the earliest  moments of her child's life the  mother begins to worry and fret  about the other woman who will  some time in tho natural course of  events come into his life���������and to  worry over her imperfection's.  Unfortunately, thero has been  very few mothers since tho world  began who have ever thought any  girl or woman good enough to bo  their sons wifo. Just as soon as a  woman is viowed by hor sister  woman in tho light of a possible  daughter-in-law sho becomes all  imperfections, no matter how perfect she may appear to others.  Tho mother's heart, wonderfully  big and magnanimous in other  things, becomes small and narrow  when it tries to contemplate this  divided interest in its son's life,  and so'we have that ancient bugbear, tho mother-in-law of ridicule  and jest. It is just this bugaboo,  perhaps that frightens most girls  from the moment they contemplate  uniting their lives with those of  others���������a contemplation which  naturally is not alluring.  If mothers could only begin from  the very beginning of their boy's  lives to prepare themselves for the  inevitable aud to train their sons  for the obligations of their lives���������  to not only be good sons,' but also  to be good husbands and fathers���������  the world would enter upon another golden era. Pity 'tis, but  most mothers, by their over-indulgence and solicitude, raise  within their sons all of tho selfishness and pettiness that later makes  them disagreeable and exacting in  family life. ,  Mother herself waits upon John  hand and foot, and the girls of the  family are made to attend him as  if he were a .young god. He may  be a perfectly sweet and loveable  lad in everything else except his  demand for attention. He never  knows where his own "things are  and it never occurs to him that ho  might make life easier and more  enjoyable for others if he_ would  learn to care for himself.  In the little courtesies and  elegancies of life he may bo a past  master: In the essentials he is a  woeful failure. And with his  idea of his own importance distorted and with his perceptions developed in only one direction he  fares forth to seek the one being  of all���������his soulmate.  He finds her.   .To him she is all  perfection���������she is divine.    To his  mother she   is   a most   ordinary  human being. The moment mothor  finds John's intentions towards the  girl are seriouB that moment she  begins her campaign of resentment  against her sons choice and not iii-  frequenlly against his life's happiness.    Naturally,   the  girl   becomes resentful when Bhe realizies  the position her prospective mother  in-law has taken and so fails in her  one chance in a thousand.   Thus  the two who  should be a man's  greatest source of inspiration in the  world begin to create for him a  veritable place of torment.  Mothers should not only educate  their sons for their places as the  heads of domestic establishments,  bnt they should educate themselves  for their future positions as  mothers-in-law. Girls who expect to become wives, and most  girls do, should train themselves to  be amiable and worthy daughters  Katherine Kip.  %  your Razors Honed  and Your Baths at  SAWLEY'S  GREENWOOD,  ^���������������**4.*,������2M*,M-*..!W*W***t.������.������!0*4������'H2^^  Wp     H/T   Greenwood Miners  -  t*      Vi    Union, No. 22, W.  ������   A ���������    1TA������ F   M-i me(3tg Qvery  Saturday evening in Union Hall, Copper street, Greenwood, at 7.

Then I up-oufied,'  an' the'- jar drove my head botwwn  my shoulder-blades; then I went'over  an' over, like a loop-the-loop; there  was a crash, about fourteen tons of  melons flow up an' lit on me, an' my'  Hghtsrwent out. . .  "When I come to.I was smothered  with melons. I couldn't move an Inch,  an' the-sharp corners of crates was  proddin! me _ full " of equilateral  triangles.. -  '   ;  VWhat had happened was a mighty  excitln' game of 'snap-the-whip.'  Roundin' a sharp-curve, my car, beln'  last an' the lash of the whip, was  'flicked off into a gully, goin' clear to  the bottom and landin' in a clump of  mosquite bushes. ��������� This horrible  catastrophe' escapes the notice of the  train'crew-at the time,'an' the balance  of the train * proceeds' on its way,  triumphant. ��������� They\remains ignorant,  complete,, of ' the calamity, till > the  yard-master up at the junction discovers he's'shy one carload of melons,  invoiced, an' one large, amiable gent,  uninvoiced,' accordin' to specifications.  1 "Meantime, I'm busy plckin' melons  out of my .system, tryin' to get room  to bat" myi eyes an' draw my breath  just once more-for luck. Most of the  crates had busted, an' every move I  made, more" melons would" come  slldin' on to me.' I wasn't broke anywhere, but mashed to a pulp, an' it  seemed several years before I got one  arm free, dug myself out, an Inch at  a time, an,' got a few lungfuls of*a!r.'  The car was lyln' on its side .considerably lower at one end thaa the'  other, an' up under the" peak of the'  upper corner' I had plenty of room.  I ate* a few melons an' made'myself  comfortable.

"I ate some more melons, but I  hadn't no enthusiasm for 'em. I was  beginnin' to sort o' founder on a  melon diet. A lot of 'em had got all  squashed an' mushy in the melly an',  lyin' there in a heap with the hot  sun beatln' on the car, it wasn't long  before they began to bubble an'  ferment, an' by the end of the second  day the atmosphere of that car was  somethin' stupenjus. After that I  spent most of my time with my nose  at a ventilator slit, gettin' all the  outside air-1 could.  "Pardner, not to harrow up your  feelin's further, I was in that car  eight days! I'd got Into a sort of  catamose condition, full of nightmares  of melons, when all at once I heard  a long "snif-f-f!' at one of the cracks,  an' the idea of any one or anything'  wantin' to sniff at the flavor of that  car pulled- me wide awake with a  jump. 'Sufferin' catsl* I yelled,  'lomine out o' this!' But my voice  was smothered like a man shoutln*  into a pillow.  "It got an answer, though, for I  heard the sound of a horse, a man  called through tho cracks, and then:  'Look out!' says he, 'I'm goin' to  shoot!' Then bang! bang! bang! the  door splintered, an' the staple busted.  The door was shoved open, I crawled  out, took a long whiff of pure, clear,  melonless air, an' collapsed.  "I come to with the whisky an*  there was a man an' a pony an* a dog,  with long whiskers ��������� the man, I  mean.

Now,' I Bays, whon he'd  helped me out o' sight an' smell of  the car, 'now, friend, you've saved  my Ilfo. There's only ono more thing  I'll ask of you.'  "'What air that?' says ho.  "'Why,' says I, 'I want you to lot  mo take a bite out o' that boss of  yours. Just a mouthful somewheres  where it won't show. I need a change  of diet,' I says, 'to get rid of the taste  of melons.'  "Well, the old buck sat'an' cackled  for fifteen minutes. He actually  thought I was foolin'.

' They' have   organized   nationally so much ae a matter of course  fand so quietly that hardly anyone has  ' noticed  as 'yet. this  unusual  ability  i of  Canadian  women. -  Thoy  do  not  i seem to. bo awtare'of it themselves,  1 wMch,    perhaps,  ,1a, just   as   well.  Women -In - Great' Britain aren oted  i outside oi home life "for their activity  las political canvassers.   It would be  l difficult   to ' estimate 'the   extensive  1 work carried on by political orgaiiiza-  j tlons of women In England and Scot-  I land.    Women in the United States  ' have ^made a name for olubs to per-  j suade culture' to' come and live wtiih  1 them.    Browning  clubs,  Mondelsohn  ! clubs, Sorosis clubs, May-flower clubs,  'Daughters  of  the   Revolution   clubs,  are k means by which  women  in  the  United States are fitting the women  of the past and'present to be women  of   the   future.     But   the   Canadian  woman,*, as   it   seems   almost   unconsciously,  has- measured   the  distance between Halifax and .Victoria,  and has  said to herself:   "We must  Chid some way b'y  which  the word  of tlie woman In the West may reach  the woman In the East and_the word  of. the  woman of raid-Canada musit  come to both East and West."    Not  only  national  canrntdeshiip,  but national  betterment-and  help are the  aims   of   these   societies  formed   by  Canadian women.    ���������  If- it is asked how Canadian women  first. learned ,to organize nationally.  WHY  MALACHI-NOLAN STEPPED  .. DOWN.  MKS.  FLORENCE  HUEST0N  the most reasonable answer is that  thirty years ago a woman's movement  for foreign missions .began among  .Canadian women. There are great  missionary societies to-day among the  'women of all the-Canadian churches.  These leading women of twenty-five  ���������years ago learned how to extend their  missionary societies nationally. They  .said: "The world for Christ," and  ,along with that softly-spoken wo-  ���������men's battle-cry there came, without  ���������any special summons, the soundest  aspirations towards Canadian 'nation-  'ojlism.

SIR THOMAS SHAUGHNESSY  Binoe."  Like most of the men who have  carved out a.career for themselves  and become famous at it Sir Thomas  Shaijghnessy is a hard worker. He  Jlkes workers about him and has no  UBe for the idler. His salary as head  of a wealthy and appreciative cor-  'iporatlon, combined with successful  Investments from his savings, have  made his future comforts assured in  this world but he does not work for  the mere sake of earning money or  piling it up. PIo works with a purpose in view and that purpose is the  carrying out of the groat plans of the  road. He does not believe in riches.  "I believe the day Is coming," he is  credited wtih saying, "whon it will bo  considered vulgar for a man to have  more than a million dollars. I do not  believe in tlio aristocracy of dollars.  If there must be an aristocracy, let  it bo of brain, refinement and work.  Let it be above all else, an aristocracy  of well directed, useful, conscientious  'work.'  He was born In Milwaukee in 1S53,  as the name impljos, of Irish ancestry.  At the ago of 1G" on graduating from  a business college, he jolnc-d tho staff  of the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St.  Paul railway and got along so well  im bis work that in 1879 he was appointed genoral store-keeper. Sir  William Van Home wanted a good  man, In that department and-in 1822  asked Mr. Shauglinessy to take the  Job which he did. His work was not  a bed of .rosea but he did what was  expected of.'him so well that inside  of a couple of years he was mado  asal5>ftt to the genoral manager and  taioved up step by step until he be-  ������ame president and only recently  chairman of the board of directors  Srom which Sir William Van Home  ���������retired.  As   Alderman   Malachi  Nolan   sat  and smoked' and sipped, he thought  again of -Limeriok ��������� the breath  of  spring  blows   the  fragrance  of   the  hawthorn, white upon the bough; he  hears, the  song of the mavis;   he is  walking  homeward 'along- the  black  path   through 'the   bog,   ancl   ud   the  green boreen,  and  there beforo him  Is the little cottage, its thatch held  down  by  sticks   and  stones,  a  long  ash  pole  propping up  its crumbling  gable;   there  lsrthe  mud shed  with  the thills of the'old cart sticking out  of it; the donkey, is standing by, sad  as ever; and up,the muddy lane little  Annie in,her bare feet Is driving the  cows to the byre; and then he sees his  mother  sitting-in .the'low  doorway,  all at once he catches his first whiff  of   the   peat   smoke,   and,  with   the  strange  spell that, odors work upon  the memory,' it   makes'  him   a   boy  again;   again.he "is   sheltered   on   a  rainy day in the  mud  shed,  playing  shoot-marbles   with   Andy   Corrigan  and Jerry O'Brien; again he is In the  little chapel with the leaky roof;  he  sees all  the boys and girls ��������� Mary  Cassidy among them ��������� standing on  the bare clay floor; he brings his bit  of stone to kneel on during mass, he  even runs out for"a piece of slate to  give   to   Mary,   who   lays   it   'n   the  puddle  at her feet and  spreads her  handkerchief    over    it    before    she  kneels.   And when the mass is over,  ho will take little Nora ��������� little Nora?  Ho placed his hand to his forehead  in confusion, and then in a gasp it  all  comes over him ��������� Mary Is old,  Andy and .Terry are old, little -nnie  is old, and- he is old ��������� they are all  gone away.   He bowed his head.  And yet Nora yearned'to go. Should  ho turn the ward over to Brennan and  take her this spring? He could run  for the legislature when ho came back  In the fall; a senator would be elected  by the next General Assembly, and  the graft would bo very good then.  The compromise attracted Malachi,  for at once it acquitted him of indecision, a quality of statesmanship  ho hated, and kept for him the life of  power that had become as the very  breath of his nostrils.  .The long day was done, and  Malachi, in shirt-sleeves "and stockinged, feet, sat in his big plush rocking-  chair, his .legs Btretched out bofore  him, taking his ease at his own  hearth. When he had come home at  midnight, Nora, who always sat up  for him, had Insisted upon brewing  him a cup of tea, under the, impression, common to a certain class  of women, that it has great medicinal  qualities. Malachi had sipped it obediently, though he had not cared for  it after all the mineral waters ho had  drunk that day, and had enjoyed far  more than the tea the freckled Irish  face of his daughter, as he gravely  goggled at her over the rim of the  saucer into which he had. poured the  beverage to cool it.  "Nora, child, do ye sing now ���������  p'hat was that? ��������� it wint hummin'  t'rough me head th' daay. Well, well,  well, let me see, now ��������� hum-m-m-m  ��������� it goes something like "  And he hummed a quavering old  tune:  "I saw the Shannon's purple flood  Flow by the Irish town."  * "But it's forbidden in the lease after  ten o'clock," the girl protested, leafing over her music. "What If the  landlord^���������"  "It's time enough to saay good  marnin' to th' divil, Nora,- whin ye  meet 'im."~ .  Nora fixed herself- on the stool  fingered the keys, finding a soft minor  chord. The old man closed his eyes,  slid farther down in his plush chair,  and, just as he was prepared to listen,  she suddenly stopped in the provoking  way amateur musioians cultivate, to  say:  "But, father, that's such an old  song; wouldn't you rather I'd sing the  Intermezzo from 'Cavalleria'?"  Malachi opened his eyes with a  start and sat bolt upright.  "Naw," he said, "none o' thim fur'n  op'res ��������� p'hat's the use of yer goin'  to th' convlnt all those years?" But  his voice quickly softened. "Do ye  go on.now, Nora, darlin', there's a  good gur-rl."  And so she sang, and the alderman  sank in his ohair, with his big arms  in their shirt-leeves thrown over his  head, closed his eyes again, stretched  out his stockinged feet. The smoke  from his cigar ascended to the chandelier, and now and then, when he  remembered the words of a line, he  hummed them behind closed lips, in  unison with his daughter. When the  song was done Nora whirled around,  clasped her hands In a schoolgirl's  ecstasy, and said:  "Oh, father, that song makes me  homesick ��������� homesick for a place I  never saw. You won't run again,  will you, father, will you? And we'll  go to Ireland in the spring, won't we?  Tell me, in the spring?"  A pain struck through Malachi  Nolan's heart, a pain that was made  only more poignant when, with her  American fear of the sentimental,  Nora Joked:  "I must see our ancestral cabin."  Malachi could not open his eyes.  For once he was afraid. He did not  move for a long time. But at Inst he  sighed and set his jaw, and said:  "Well, Nora ��������� If ye saay so ��������� in  the spring."  And that was why Malachi Nolan  stepped 'down.  " Unequalled for Domestic Use."

A large hydraulic  plant will be operated this summer.  This plant has an average capacity  of 2,500 cubic yards of gravel every  twenty-four hours.    An expert has  examined the company's holdings  and has sent in a highly favorable  report, indicating that vast wealth  is to be taken out of the Omineca  placers.

Perhaps by reading it yon can get golden dreams.  Conditions in Atlin are especially satisfactory and encouraging,"  says Hon. Dr. Young, who recently  returned  the gold output for the season  promises to eclipse that of any  3*ear since the birth of the district  as a placer field. Last season the  gold commissioner's statement  approximately 8300,000 to have  been the gold yield of the district,  but as the offiicial record takes  cognizance only of that portion of  tho output upon which royalty is  collectable, exempting ������2,000 in  each case, this is considerably under the actual production total.  Probably the trne total exceeding  half a million, and this season it  will well over-run ������750,000, and  may reach a million."  It is announced that tho Royal  Standard Investment Co., of Vancouver, has acquired leases covering several miles of placer ground  Six feet of high grade ore has  been struck in the Bluebird at  Rossland at a depth of 190 feet.  Tho shaft will be sunk to the 31G  foot level, and then cross-cutting  will begin.  At Sandon the deep level tunnel  on the Star is in SOO feet.  Construction of a smelter with a  treatment capacity of 2,000 tons  daily at Granby Bay, Portland  Canal district, for the, Granby  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  company, involving an expenditure  of $1,000,000, will be started in  May. During the present year an  equal amount will also be devoted  to the development and equipment  of the Hidden Creek mines at  Granby Bay.  A large force of miners will be  put to work this suinmer at the  Surprise mine in the Hazeltondis-  trict.    -  Mr. Northey is a pioneer of the  Similkameen section, and has devoted his time for the past 12  years to jthe development of mining properties in which he is interested. He spent the winter in  Spokane, and is returning to Olalla  to look after, his mining interests.  The Apex company, he says, has  bonded the King Arthur, one of  his properties for a good sum, and  the entire purchase price is to be  paid on the 1st of July. He says  that while the Bullion at Olalla is  not being operated  at present, it  thereby bo of very great service to  tlio mining industry 'of the  Carmi  district.     Mr.   Shatford  promised  that he would lay the- matter before the Hon.,   the ��������� Minister   of  Public  Work?,   on   his  return   to  Victoria,  and  recommend  that a  survey be made,- in order to determine the best route to be followed,  aud  an  estimate of tho probable  expenditure. -   Mr. Shatford hoped  that the district road ' superintendent would be instructed to proceed at once with this survey, and  that a start could be made on the  work this year.    Mr. Shatford was  of the opinion  that it  would be  better to build a good road in  the  first place, even if it took three or  four years to complete it,  than - to  try and rush  the' construction at  the expense of good workmanship  and   easy  grades.

He was also for  some time foreman  in  the Stem-  winder property at Fairview where  almost similar conditions prevailed.

It   appears  that  "prominent" Conservatives   have  been persistently importuning Mr.  Green to go before the convention.  A list of the  "prominent"  ones  would doubtless be edifying to the  Conservatives who are not prominent.   Before   an   appeal  to  the  electorate it would be necessary for  Mr.  Green to give a satisfactory I needs.  At   noon   yesterday   a   terrific  storm   of short   duration   passed  over Greenwood.    There was only  ono flash of lightning, but it raised  havoc with lights,  telephones and  motors, and  delayed  the "publication of The Ledge.    Fritz Haus-  sener's team became alarmed and  ran home without a driver.    In  Anaconda several   windows   were  broken   in   the   Vendome   hotel.  Windows were broken in  Smith's  store and the current bored several  holes through the roof.    The door  of the meat refrigerator was smashed, and that department generally  mussed up.  In her residence close to Smith's  store,    Mrs.    Brown   was   ironing at the time, and  was 6truck  by the lightning in the lower limbs  aud back.    Sho was taken to the  hospital and was some bettor last  night,  although sho is still in a  serious condition.
