Some time ago   an application  was made by John Mulligan for  water from Long lake for smelter  purposes.     This   application "waB  contested by the Greenwood City  Waterworks company.: The case  was.argued before Gold  Commissioner McMynn two weeks ago, S.  S.  Taylor,   K. C, and I. H. Hallett appearing for Mulligan, ��������� and  A.' M.   Whiteside for the Waterworks company. Mulligan's record  was refused.      Following   is   the  gold commissioner's decision :  I. I have no jurisdiction to  grant water as applied for by John  Mulligan, i. e. (a) to be used on  lot 1053, a pre-emption claim under the land act. (b) Or to be  used on mineral claims which may  be owned -by the applicant.  2. No ammendment of application was asked for limiting the  use of the water applied for to' the  No. 43, No. 49, and No. 7 Frac.  mineral claims referred to iii the  Water Notice, (Exhibit 1) but applicant stated that he did not mean  to confine the use of the water applied for to these three mineral  claims, and also that he really-  wanted a grant of Water-Record  for industrial purposes. -  3. The water grant of the opposing company, The Greenwood City  Water Works Company has been  amended by the Assistant Commissioner of Lands and Works to cor-  respond with the certificate of approval of the undertakings of the  company���������Exhibit A���������granted by  the Lieutenant-Governor in Coun-  cilp which~approval ~incl iides~tlie"  construction of a dam at Long  Lake for storage purposes.  4. This dam has accordingly  been constructed by the company  and  5. The applicant proposes diverting the water he is applying  for near the dam and admits that  in using that water he would lower the water in the lake below the  storage level of the company's dam.  .   I therefore dismiss' this application. Wai..G.Mo.My;v,v,  Gold Commissioner.  , Datec at Greenwood, B. C. the  21st August, 1907.     - -   '  J. L. .

The ore of these properties  is exceptionally rich and runs $900  in silver alone.    This ore  is now  being shipped by pack train to the  Arrow lakes and there landed on  the boats for shipment to the Trail  smelter.  Clouds Are Lifting*.  W. A. Drewry has just returned  from completing a.survey of about  3,000 acres of land on Slocan lake  for a local syndicate.    The greater  proportion of the tract surveyed is  excellent land, well  watered  and  well adapted for fruit growing and  agricultural purposes. Mr. Drewry  observed  that there  was   a  very  large quantity of excellent timber  along the lake, which should prove  of even greater value thau milling  timber.    In the Slocan  camp Mr.  Drewry   was   pleased  to   observe  there is a marked revival in mining   operations.    This  is particularly the case in and around Silver-  ton, where over two hundred men  are employed.    Moreover, the people are now convinced that the future of the  mining industry  rests  with   themselves.    A   tram   from  <  Hewett mine, 5,000 feet long, .to  to the Wakefield mill,   was surveyed and men are now encased  DO  in clearing the right of way.���������Nelson Canadian.

A dispatch in tho daily press  says that it is probable now that  the strike will exhaust itself, and  that tho  camp  will  resume  work j able-bodied youth.  [largo"number of  those  who  were  working in the mines of that camp  previous to the strike were Ontario  boys,   and only  a few  hours ride  from home, so they picked up their  traps and went on  a visit ,to the  old folks.   Iu  the past six waeks  items in the Bruce, Groy and Sim-  coe local papers  were of frequent  occurrence   that  "Tom,   Diok  Harry  was  home on a   visit from  Cobalt and would remain for some  ' tims.    Th.ose boys can stay with a  strike longer than any mining company, for the old folks are usually  glad   to  have  them   home  in  tho  win tor, and iu the Hummer season,  the farm can  always  use another  by the warmth of a gasoline heater  in his dory that it jumped into his  boat and tried to wrap itself around  the heater.

Unjted  States is thus accounted  for.    The  father began as a poddlar of stove  or shoe polish, of which lie also became a small manufacturer in Philadelphia; later- ho  became an   importer of embroideries  on a large  scale.    Inevitably he made money.  The boys, meaiiwhilo, were coming  up and learning the business.    The  Gnggenheims clung together.    The  older sons became clerks and drummers  for  their  father,    and    the  younger sons, who were more highly educated,' also  entered  tho  fa  ther's enterprises.    Every Guggenheim had a business head, aud tho  eight of them together, doing team  work, were like a dssciplined army  corps.    So long as the father lived  he    was   the   commander-in-chief  and  he  was  undoubtedly  a good  general.
