The-rumor that the federal and  and provincial offices in this city  hoisted the Stars and Stripes' on  the.Fon.rth is.without foundation.  The same maybe said with refer-  to the. Union Jack on Dominion  Day.    . '   "  . Residents in the southern ��������� end of  the city ushered in the Fourth of  July by agitating the atmosphere  with dynamite. As a rule Americans let people know they are9alive  when the Fourth of July comes  round, but why they should get up  in-the middle of the night to disturb the people of thi3 country is  beyond comprehension. , They  would object-to Canadians making  a demonstration at midnight'on  the 1st of July in any town in the  United States. ; Canadians/~allow-  more liberty, to foreigners than any  other people, and it is of course  only the least intelligent Americans  who take advantage of the greater  freedom in this country and create  a disturbance and annoy people  who are no more interested in the  Fourth of July than they are in  the anniversary of the birth of the  Sultan of Morocco. Besides it  gives the people of this country  who have never lived in the States  a wrong impression of the large  majority of the people " of that  country, who are. an intelligent,  sensitive and refined people. It  is not possible that there was a  single American born citizen among  those who created the disturbance  the morning of the 4th. A real  American would not accept the  hospitality of a friend and.then  express his appreciation of the  favor by insulting him.  and walked. . ������������������"  Your correspondent's advice to  travelers is childish iu the extreme.'  He writes that on horse.baek is - the  be9b way to go up the North Fork,  and goes on to state that it is a  matter of great discomfort for any  traveller in a light conveyance,  and also a mere speculation  whether he will arrive at his destination with a whole rig, the roads  being narrow and no provisions  having been made for vehicles to  pass and that much delay and annoyance is- consequently caused.  Rot! i  Commencing on the 22ud day of  last May we have made eighteen  (18) return trips.by stage using  one team of horses up and back,  leaving Grand Forks 7 a. m.,  reaching the end of the wagon road  6 p.- m.; starting the return journey  next day 7 a. in  has been crowded this  week with  tourists from New York.

The day when a prosperous town  could be built on hot air has gone  by and the'kind of stuff sent out  from Gloster City is a detriment to  all legitimate enterprises, such as  is the Franklin Townsite Company,  Limited; no wonder your correspondent omitted to sign his name."

GLOSTER CITY  (Communicated)  Under the above heading in Tuk  Ledgk of June  28th,   appears a  article and wo ask space to make  just a few corrections.  Your correspondent states that  building materials are being  brought up to the rival towns,  Franklin City and Gloster City.  By Gloster City wo presumo he  alludes to tho preemption known  as Upper Franklin, if so, so far as  we can learn no building material  has or is being sent to that camp.  On the ather hand 30,000 feet of  lumber has been forwarded to  Franklin City and is on tho side of  the wagon road four miles from*  the town. Tho said wagon road  is now within one-half inilp of  Franklin and will bo completed  within a few days. Carpenters aro  busy erecting a two story hotel for  B. Lequime.

When in operation the sawmill  at Kaslo will employ 75 men iu  the mill, and cut 120,000 feet of  lumber every 24 hours.  Tourists complain that they  cannot get a bath at New Denver  unless they jump in the lake.  Col.

His new mill cuts 35,-  000 feet every 10 hours and the  product is shipped cast of tho  Rockies. Koch employs 90 men  in his various mining and milling  enterprises, and is one of the best  aud most active of Nelson's citi-  zons.  Charles Borene, formerly of  Whitewater is running the Logan  Houso in Spokane.  Sidney Morman has sold his  Outburst in Spokane, and will start  a morning paper in that city.

The Hotel Strathcona in Nelson  , Boundary's Domiuiou Day celebration was held this year at'  Phoenix, and with perfect weather,  a long list of sports for which generous prizes were hung up, and a  large attendance.from tho outside,  the occasion was a big success.  Music was furnished by' tho recently organized Phoenix fire brigade band and the first day's  events concluded with - a dance  given in-the new hall of the Miners'  Union, which had an immense attendance.    . *  One of the most Interesting  features of the celebration.was the  machine rock drilling cobtest, held  in tho Great Northern cut. and in  which no less than ten teams  entered from the several mines.  The same machine was used for all  teams, being a Rand drill of modern pattern, elevated on a platform.  Tho first prize was $150 and the  second 875. A large -number of  spectators watched the drilling,  which continued nearly all day.  Fach team nsed a 2k inch bit to  start, with a deercaso of an eighth  of an inch to the foot, and lied fifteen minutes to set up and drill.

The hose reel racing had 8400 in  prizes hung up, but uo outside  teams mustered up the courage to  enter. Consequently the races in  this event were run off between  the regular Phoenix team and a  team of the Eagles.

It was found on  testing that there was not a flaw,  in the line anywhere, which is unusual in newly constructed longdistance lines of this kind. The  management is well, pleased with  the result of the trial. The West  Kootenay -Power arid Light Co. is  now lighting Trail.

Tho Myers Creek News pulished  at Chesaw, Wash., isauthorty for  the statement that John Lind,  formerly of Anaconda, has made  a rich find of copper on the Caribou, a claim on which he has been  working'for some yeaiy.  On the Eureka in" South Wellington camp, Tho3. Edwards and  W. George have recently opened a  quartz lead which runs well in  gold. Two assays from avorago of  vein give within a few cents of 850  in gold to the ton. One sample  was sent to Denver, Colorado, aud  the other to the local assayer, and  the returns were within 25 cents of  being tne same. The lead is about  three feet iu width. The' work  previously done was on an iron  cap, and this year the partners  opened up the quartz showing with  the foregoing very satisfactory  results.  Thos. McAuIly, of Beaverdell,  was in the city yesterday. Mr.  Mr. McAully is one of the pioneerp  of the Boundary, having come to  the district over twenty j'ears ago.1  He says all the properties in the  West Fork now being worked are  showing up well.' This is especially so of the Duncan and Bounty  Fraction. The lead on the Bounty  is widening- with depth, arid the  owners now have a car of ore on  the dump that will-assay over $300  to the ton. A shipment- will be  made as soon as the snow comes.  Mr. McAully loaves Saturday for  the West Fork.  Hammered Giant Cap  One day last week Cameron  Signs, the ten year old son of Mr.  and Mrs. A Signs, of Oroville,  formerly of this place, got hold of  a giant dynamite cap. After carrying it about for-a time,' aud not  knowing what it was, he in course  of time, found a hammer aud sat  down on a rock to have some fun  with tho destructive little copper  missel. Almost the entire left  hand was blown off and one leg  horribly mutilated. Blood poison  threatens the damaged leg as it  was pierced by tho small copper  fragments, although there is still a  possibility' of fighting it off.���������  Mvers Creek News.  Nickel in B. C.

Up to the end of 1905 it  has produced 1,811,400,000 pounds  or about 800,000 long tons of refined copper, worth, say, S275,-  000.^00. Shareholders have received in dividends 892,320,000 or  about 35 per cent, of the value of  tho output. It is estimated that  the cost of production has been  S.2 cents per pound of copper.  During 1906 the production should  be close to 100,000,000 pounds and  tho dividends $6,000,000. Despite tho great opportunity for  financial games, tho management  has been consistently straightforward and honorable. The mine  has been conducted as a sound  busiuess and in a conservative  manner, tho effect of which has  been beneficial to the reputation of  the copper industry of Michigan.  Plenty of Copper and Kooteuay  Bello cigars arc found in the Boundary.    ��������� '' ."  tained in dredging for gold some  two miles below Lillooet, it was  found that a line, heavy, grayish  sand with a ra?tallic aspect' remained after the clean-up.  A sample of this sand was sent  to Dr. Hoffman, chemist of the  geological survey, for examination,  and was found by him to consist  essentially of an iron-nickel alloy  with scales of platium, grains of  tho rare metal idircsmine; gold  magnetite, garnet and quartz.  The"nickel alloy and platinum  were nearly in equal proportions  and constituted about 90 per cent,  of the whole.  The iron-nickel alloy is "especially peculiar owing to the large  amount of nickel it contains,  namely, over three-quarters of the  whole.  Only two occurrences of similar  miueral aro known, one iu New  Zealand and the other in Italy;  it is ��������� proposed to ' call .this new  mineral souesite, after Mr. F.  Soues, government agent at Clinton, who sent, the samples for  identification.  The large amount of platinum in  these sands and the ease with  which the nickel alloy may be separated by dissolving in nitric acidj  leads to the hope that we have  here a now source of this valuable  metal.���������Kamloops Sentinel,  The following" letter'to' Police  Magistrate Hallett 'of 'this city  gives a tye.ttcrhl.oa of the pew  ine.tal and its'values.

Of course it is only found at depth',  and that depth can only be reached  by a properly constructed dredger  to deal with - the gravels of the  Fraser river, which I have no  doubt will be an industry for the  next half 'century so far as the.  District of Lillooet is concerned.  I doubt very'much if:the bed of the  Fraser river through the District  of Lillooet can 'be worked out in  that time. Of course it all" depends upon a properly constructed  dredger, and'' more than that a  man in charge of everything1 who  is thoroughly acquainted with the  dredge, and how to deal with tho .  waters of a very turbulent stream.  -        Yours truly  F. 'Soues, Gov't Agent;  ���������  A careful examination of the .  sand with a really good glass is  very interesting, the gold (,14 ozs".  per ton) and platinum (8i ozs. per  ton) (English' ton 2240 fb's. in' both  cases) "being readily and easily  seen. Some of the garnets are  great features if tboy wero only a  little larger. '  The Rossland Mines  The shipments for the first six  months of this year amounted to  161,419 tons, and should the same  ratio be kept up for the remaining  half of the year the tonnage would  give a total of 322,833 tons, as  against'321,464 tons' for the year  1905, which was valued at ������3,515,-  132." It' will be seen from the  above figures that the yield this  year will'be approximately, the  same as it was iii",-1905, unless  there is an increasein the tonnage  from tho leading" mines. Last  year there were some fourteen  shippers, and this year there aro  eight, so far, but the number may  be increased before the end of tho  year. Matters are shaping themselves at some of tbe'loading mines  so that it is probable that the yieli  may be lurgely increasod. It U  admitted that the 'Centre Star  could output more ore but for the  lack of better hoisting facilities,'  This is being remedied by ��������� the  installation of a larger hoistf 'i'lie  Le Roi and the'/je Koi ''Two lioih'  could put out a 'larger tonnage il  tljey desired to, ancfit is'prolnble  tliat tliey will increase ft bejforo the  encl of the year.'���������Rossland Miner-  Aspen Groye   .

Tueiie is little difference in the  crowning of a king between England and Norway. In England  the king is anoint?d with some  kind of oil or salve, while the high  priest invokes tho usual blessing.  In Norway goosegrease or some  other kind of sacred oil is rubbed  on the naked breast of the king  and all is well: In a country that  butts into the Arctic Circle like  Norway, it seems quite sensible to  grease a king before he sits in the  lookout chair of the nation.  the city of Winnipeg^and Mr.J.D.  McArthur concerning tho electric  power proposition made by the  latter says that perhaps the most  astonishing fact of all is the estimate of population for Winnipeg  during the next generation. ' All  other figures involved are keenly  and actively debated, but both  sidc3 take without quibble-- or  question the prediction of a population of 300,000 by 1911, a bare  live years from now; of '150,000 by  1921, of 600,000 by 1931, and 800,-  000 by 1941. It is enough to take  one's breath away. Such figures  within an equal period are beyond  the highest ambition of Montreal  or Toronto, and one. is tempted to  ask if the figures arc not mere  gossip and guess. This, however,  is the estimate formally made in  the report submitted to the City  Council, and no Winnipcger seems  inclined to suggest that it is in anyway extravagant. The reply to  any criticism is rather than not  half, nor quarter, the possibilities  of Winnipeg have as yet- been  dreamed of, and that it will surpass all predictions that have been  made regarding it.  We shall have great docks and  wharves here within a few years,  declared one enthusiast, to accommodate a vast fleet of ships on  Lake Winnipeg. Tho improvement of the Bed River means only  a matter of time.  And yet another one declares  that Winnipeg will yet be an ocean  port, and that ships from Liverpool  and London" will leave Winnipeg  by way of Red River, Lake Winnipeg and the Nelson river into Hudson Bay.  These things are all more or Lss  incrcditable to the newcomer, and  yet a voyage from Winnipeg to  Liverpool in an an ocean- steamer  would be no greater triumph over  natural difficulties than .a journey  from Halifax to Dawson city in a  pullman car; and this last is what  the Grand Ti uuk Pacific promises  in the map recently issued showing the approximate route of the  great new transcontinental railway  in which the line is continued into IW  Dawson along the western slope of '  the Rockies. Doubtless both these  marvels will be accomplished as  soon as it is worth while.

Mexican Mining Laws  -There is talk of a comprehensive  revision of   the  mining   Jaws   of  Mexico, not with a view-,-to-, any  radical- changes, but- to . make a  more harmonious whole of. the accumulation   of   legislative enactments}    executive   decrees,   etc.,  that have grown   up   since   1891 ;  also with a view to certain changes  advocated to the mining interests  in the matter of fixing of boundaries, size of claims, method of registration   and   payment   of claim  taxes.     The   project    was ' also  broached^ of restoring the former  right held by the government over  deposits of oil  and   coal- as- over  other deposits.    It is the principle  of the Mexican   mining   law,   inherited from Spanish law, that the  title to mineral riches rests in the  state, and   not in   the individual  poss?ssing the surface of the   soil,  and in granting mineral patents  the government gives the applicant  ���������4only the right to remove the minerals.    The distinction-iu principle  remains,   however,   to the extent  that it gives the state full authority  and control and tho right to  insist  upon the Conditions which it stipulates with regard to the development of the riches covered  by the  conveyance.      This   principle   of  reserving fee simple in "the state  was abandoned at the time of   the  promulgation of the present-.mining law with reference to deposits  of coal and oil, the rights of them  passing with the title of the surface of the soil.  It has been urged ihat the development of Mexico's coal aud oil  resources was not proceeding with  the rapidity that it would if the  large land owners did not possess  the title to such wealth underneath  them. The-government has had a  committee-studying the advisability and legality of a change of the  law "In tliis respect making coal and  oil deposits subject to the same  general principles as are other  mineral deposits,-but the report is  understood to have been adverse  and the matter dropped.  of the Pacific coast for many years  to-come.. - It is favored with a fine  harbor and other natural advantages.. Those who predict that San  Francisco will not be reconstructed  greater and more beautiful than  ever are sadly off their reckoning  ���������Butte Miner.  Deepest Gold Mine  Melbourne.���������Australia now possesses tho deepest gold mine in the  world. Within the last few weeks  the shafts at the New Chum railway at Bcndigo, Victoria, have  been sunk to a depth-of over 4,300  feot, aud the quartz there tapped  has been sampled and crushed,  with the result that a yield of gold  equal to an ounce per ton has been  obtained.  The operations in the mine have  been tested by government officials  in view of the fact that never- before in the world's history has gold  been obtained from so low a depth  as three-quarters of a mile.  Tho Victoria Director of Geology, E. J. Dunn, in the course of  an official report upon a sample  from the 4,300-foot' shaft of the  New Chum writes:.  This remarkable- speciman of  auriferous quartz is evidence of th  vast stores of wealth in gold'N possessed by the State. It is a guarantee of the stability and-, progressive prosperity of Be'ndingo that  such rich ore existsafc such great  depths. The winning of such ore  from a vertical depth of over  three quarters-of a mile from the  surface is an achievement of which  Bendingo miners may justly feel  prouiid.  damage it would do the cattle meii.

JAS, MARSHALL, Prop,  AC  New San Francisco not like Old  The old San -Francisco���������the San  Francisco of the days of the argonauts���������is gone. Tho new San  Francisco is rising in its place.  Men who crossed the plains in '49  and braved the hardships that beset the pioneers and helped build  San Francisco will deplore the  passing of the city that was aside  from the considerations that concern loss of life and property. To  the- pioneers of the Pacific coast  the old San Francisco was dear.  There was.only one; there will  never be another." A good many  of these old timers have, like the  city wherein they saw stirring  times and did marvelous things in  thc'oO's, passed away. Those who  remain will remember San Francisco as itjwas, the old San Francisco, the amazing San Francisco,  the most wonderful city that was  ever builded.  Not that only the memory of the  San Francisco that was remains,  thepibnecr must prepare for a new  order of things. They must prepare for a San Francisco and prepare to forget 'Frisco. So, too,  must the young generation prepare  to remember the San Francisco of  the old only as it was described in  the books of prose and poetry and  prepare to read tho hopes of the  city of the future. The old.is dead:  tho young is born.  Magnificent as was San Francisco in some of its sections, there  were many blemishes which must  always havo remained had not  they been wiped away as they  were. "Now the city will bo built  in more orderly fashion. The  buildings will be more substantial  and uniform.

Miles is another gentleman who has been  given a vindication by events.  The packers caught with a lot of  "embalmed beef" on baud need  only bepatient and- wait for another war.  One or two sections therein contained renders it very difficult for  Senator Piatt to express himself  adequately on the rate bill.  Tho Russian dbuma is talking as  .much and doing as little as a certain legislative body presided over  by a "standpat" speaker.  A reader wants to know what  "inconsistency" is. It would be  inconsistent for a New - Yorker to  chide a Kansan about the Burton  case.  The senate will have to remain  in continuous session for a, long  time before it can catch up with  the work of doing its duty to the  people.  "Home coming week" is on in  Kentucky. Mr. Taylor, of Indiana, may look across to the blue  grass pastures, but it is not likely  tnat he will lake advantage of the  excursion rates.  The senate has suddenly grown  sensitive to public opinion. But  just wait until tho pcoplo get a  chance to tell the senate all that it  lias been thinking during the last  ten or a dozen )-cars.  The work of������the Armstrong committee cost the sfruto of New York  $100,000.

In driving the long Simplon tunnel under the Alps a line test was  .offered of the accuracy, with which  ..engineering science can guide the  .direction of two parties of workers  (Smarting twelve miles apart so that  : they, will meet in the heart of a  ���������mountain. Three principal elements had to bo calculated���������the  itotal length, the level and the direction as to right or left. "When  .the two bores met in the middle it  i\vas found that the length, tho  Jeast important of the three ele-  jments, differed only about thirty-  voue ..inches from the calculated  (Value; the; difference in level was  ���������Only four inches ; and the error in  .-direction from one end was less  ���������than five inches, from the other  iless than four inches.

But   I "knew   that  on   the  other side of the ship,   hidden  beneath ������hc great hulk that swam so  majestically,    there .was a little,  toiling steam tug, with a  heart of  ffre  and arms of iron,  that was  hugging it  close and   dragged  it  bravely on ; and I knew that if the  little steam tug untwined its- arms  and left the  tall   ship,   it would  wallow   and  roll   about,   and   it  would drift hither and thither and  go off with refluent tide,  no man  knows where.     And   so   I   have  known more than one genius, high  decked, full freighted, wide sailed,  gay pennoued,  that but   for the  bare toiling arras, aud brave warm  beating heart of the faithful little  wife that nestled close to him  so  that no wind or wave could part  them, would soon have gone ..down  stream    and   been   heard   of   no  more.
