The greater part  of the time was spent in New  York, with a short stay in Boston.  For the past two months tho  weather' has been exceptionally  warm in New York, and of course  most of the capitalists are spending  the greater part of the time at seaside resorts.  Mr. Smailes is now in New York  and it is thought definite information in reference to the railway  will be given out in a few days.  the  A  SS8S JS8S3S S^^^^SS^&S&SSSS-  There is a 20-inch ledge afc the  Decorate your, homes- with  latest designs in  wall papers.  A Sulphur Mine  There is only one sulphur mine  in the United States, said Herbert  Oser, of New Orleans. The existence of the mine is known to' but a  few and was known to hardly any  one until recent years.  The mine is said to contain about  $37,000,000 worth-of pure sulphur.  It is located near Lake'.Charles, in  an almost inaccessible region. It  was discovered by a famous mineralogist, according to one story,  "while another one has it that it  was found by a party of hunters  who had shot bears in that vicinity  and found the coats of the bears to  be filled with a black, greasy oil.  They wero curious to know where  this came from and tracked Bruin  one nigbt, going through an almost  impenetrable march, and coming  out on a high wooded knoll where  the oil pit was discovered.  Little, was thought of the matter  until a few years before the Civil  War, when an attempt was made  to sink a shaft to get the oil. The  war broke up tho business, but in  1S6S another shaft was sunk, this  time with 122 huge steel rings,  each twelve feet in diameter and  five feet wide. They wero imported from France and rolled  across the country to the oil pit.  Thirty-eight of them were sunk iu  one shaft, 190 feet deep, but it  filled up with oil and it was found  that nothing could be done with  the enterprise. A fortune was  sunk in the attempt.  ' Later the Standard Oil heard of  the oil and came down to examine  the ground. Borings were made  and it was found that below the oil  was a stratum of pure sulphur  rock from 125 to 200 feet deep.  Various expedients wero tried to  mine the Ptnff, but all  failed until  bottom of" the Crescent Frracfcion,  now being worked by Ted  Mueller, who represents Chicago  capital.  ' ��������������������������������������������� j  The past week a transfer was  made of the Canada Fraction by  E. O. Lewis to F. Edward Brown,  the consideration being $8,000 payable in "three equal instalments in  six, twelve and eighteen months.  The claim is situate in Central  camp aud one hundred feet of  work is to done during the first six  months of the bond.  G. M. .Fripp, .H. C. Kerman, H.  Watlin and a number of other  Grand Forks people. The bonding  of this group will undoubtedly give  an impetus to the development of-  other properties in thisifche-premier  camp of th.3 North Fork country.  ���������Grand Forks Sun.  Blanchard Snyder returned from  a trip lo the West Fork the past  week, where he had been looking  over tlie Duncan mine iu which he  is interested. Tho vein on the  Duncan has been stripped on the  surface for 1700 feet. The ledge  averages from two to five feet in  width ' and the paystreak from  twelve to eighteen inches. The  ore taken out is high grade, the  shipment being made, running  $300 to the ton.  This week drifting was commenced from the 170 foot level of  the Prince Henry.' This drift will  give about 70 feet of stoping  ground for nearly 100 feet. Shipments will be regularly made from  the mine. The Prince Henry is  now developed to the stage that ore  shipments will pay all expenses of  mining-and treatment, aud dividends may be expected in the near  future. The ore is much richer at  depth than-on the" surface.      ���������*.''"  Three men are working on the  Moreen in Deadwood camp. The  No. 2 shaft is down 50 feet. This  will be sunk to the 100 level aud  crosscutting done. Manager Shal-  lenbcrger wishes to purchase or  lease the compressor plant now  lying idle at the Euckhorn and use  power in sinking. The Buckhorn  power house is only about GOO feet  from No. 2 shaft of the Moreen.  If he is successful a larger force of  men will be put on and the work  carried on more energetically.  When you go Gshing do not forget the bait and a box of Kootenay  Belle cigars.  RETURNED FROM NEW YORK  Duncan Mcintosh the well known  mining man and railway promoter,  returned from New York Tuesday  evening, where he   had  boon  for  one of the engineers thought up a  scheme to extract the sulphur by  melting it and pumping it to the  surface. Borings made a mile  either way showed the stratum to  be about 200 feet thick iu every  direction, and tho worth of the  mine was estimated at nearly $-10,-  000,000.  A uniquo and intricate process  is used to extract tho sulphur.  Hugo iron pipes aro forced into the  bed aud hot water pumped into  them at 350 degrees from a battery of 100 boilers. After about  ten days tho melted sulphur is  pumped to the surface and flowed  into huge vats, where it is allowed  to cool.  wide range hi all shade-) afc Smith  and McRat-'s.

Friendship you have to buy is  dear at any price.  Work on the Eureka claim is  producing very satisfactory results.  No. 1 tunnel is in 70 feet, with a  7 inch paystreak of very rich ore  in the face. y No. 2 tunnel is in 40  feet and has a vein runniug from  five to ten inches in width, canning native silver and good gold  values. At 40 feet, the .vertical  depth is about 30. This tunnel  will be run in about 150 feet to  strike the larger lead which is exposed ou the surface, at a depth of  about 100 feet. Yesterday, Manager Hamlin discovered another  small vein on the surface, about,  nine inches in width, all galena.  As stated some weeks ago, the  Greenwood-Eureka mining company have one of tho best located  properties in the high-grade belt,  and tho development now being  done shows that tlie mine has not  only the location but the,ore. Six  men are working running tho drift  tunnel. , '  ' The Uses of Cobalt  The discovery of rich deposits, of  cobalt in the district of Ontario  named after the niineralrfcheretfaund  in such abundance is expected to'  do much toi'bring nearer the long  sought solution of the problem o'f  light weight electric storage bat-/  teries, especially those designed ,for  use in automobiles. Inventor 'Edison is authority for the statement  that:the discovery of .cobjylt Jn  abundance will make commercially '  possible the manufacture and sale  of a storage battery that ;is highly  efficieut and yet econimical both to  make and to operate. The use of  Cobalt will halve the weight, ami  also halve the cost .of ,tbe best stoc-  age batteries now in use. This  will mean a complete and speedy  revolution ia road travelling,-- for  the advantages of silent electric  power oyer the noise and smell of  steam or gaso-iine ,engi.pes .a.re .o,b-  .vious.  Tne.commercial possibilities'top,  are enormous.     The .demand' for  the' .metal   is   growing, 'arid   the'  'worldVsupply   was-.quite inadequate.    Until.ifcs discovery in On?'  tario, the sources of supply were  .Ontario, North  Carolina,   Oregon.  "Tennessee" and - Francs!     It "Ika's  heretofore been used principally for  glazes for pottery and for artists'  colors.    Tho supply has- been so  small ..that the -total  production  of  this continent, found iu tho gam-  erite deposits.of .Oregon have averaged only five tons a year.     Tho  price of cobalt has ru;led high in  consequence, and^f (the Canadian  mines turn .put a3 .expected, tho  employment of $he   metal   in' the  arts, as well as in mechanics,  will  be greatly extended..  Bond White Bear  On Saturday last the White Bear  group of.live claims, in Franklin  camp, was bonded to an English  syndicate for. $50,000. Cash payments are to bo made dining the  life of the bond, which extends  over a period, of IS mouths, and  development work is to bo prosecuted continuously. The .group,  which is a copper proposition, consists of the White Bear, Black Boar,  Big Cub. Little Cub, and Lucky  J.u:k.   The property is owned by  IJcep cool by swinging in a hammock, and buy the hammock from  Smith & McKae.  Chicly for Chinks  Two fChinamen were   taken to  Comaplix from  Arrowhead today  to work in thc_ boarding' house- of  tho Bowman Lumber Co.    An attempt   to   bring    Chinamen   into  Comaplix  for the   same   purpose,  was frustrated jsome time ago, and  members of the almond-eyed .race  who have presumed to enter other  towns of the Lardaau   have  beeu  promptly deported.  Among tho residents of the  Lardeau there is au understanding,  or unwritten law, that Chinamen  shall not be permitted to labor. or  reside in the district, and up to  this time it has been filled to tho  letter. We are sorry to. sec that  the above mentioned company has  undertaken or permitted tho break*  ing of this ''unwritten Jaw of -the  Lardeau," by winch frhcy j,vil;r  surely incur the {11. wjll of tjje entire district.    ,  Lardpauites wj}l not stand to  have Ohiimincn among fcjcm am}  if the said company is here to con-  dupb business along peaceful lines,  it would be well for them to realizo  that fact.���������0-imborno Minor".

No better guide to the prosperity  of a city can be given than the  business done afc its posfcoflice. In  the Greenwood postofiice there has  been a substantial increase this  year over last in tho sales of  stamps, and in the amount of  money orders and postal notes issued. There has been a decrease  of deposits in the savings bank department, owing to the transfer of  a number of accounts to the chartered banks.

The Unfortunate Sunday Bill  The third reading of the proposed  Sunday law has been assented to,  and the majority of the members  of Parliament are now wondering  what the legislation enacts. Oue  of the ablest lawyers in the House  admitted that the thing floors him  completely, and that he would not  dare stake his professional reputa-  tation upon the meaning of the  measure. The mistake with the  bill has been the failure of the Administration to take popular sentiments into consideration. In its  main principle tho' project assails  what have hitherto been known as  provincial rights. Because it is  hostile to the provinces it has been  made the subject of compromises,  and, as a consequence, it is weaker  than some provinces desire such  legislationto.be, and much more  strict than other provinces think  proper. Had care been taken to  meet the views of the provinces a  workable act might have been  evolved.  them to do. Elsewhere ifc is  argued that while uhe provinces are  authorized by tho Piche amendment to legalize labor on Snndaj',  the}7 arc not in a position to render  less stringent the legislation affecting the taking of recreation on the  Lord's Day. The uncertainty of  tho amendment and tho theory  that, notwithstanding the amendment, there must bo compromises  has led to some strange situations.  The authorization of ball games on  Sunday in a measure'which prohibits the hiring of a horse and  buggy is a paradox. The declaration that nothing may be purchased on the Lord's Day except  liquors on cars and steamers is another odd proposition. All through  the bill as it stands there are these  strange contradictions, resulting  from the effort to produce a law  that shall be at the same time both  weak and strong.  The measure has fared badly in  the House, owing to the unfortunate attitude of Mr. Aylesworth towards the members. That Minister who is understood to be an  amiable gentleman in his personal  relations, is brusque and impatient  iu Parliament. When a public  measure is in the hands of such a  politician it naturally loses the judicious attention it would otherwise receive. But the chief difficulty has been the general policy  pursued with reference to this matter. At the outset, the] government refused absolutely to listen to  the demands of the provinces.  Then there was a sudden capitulation, aud an attempt to rectify the  blunder, with the result that the  whole situation is chaotic That  the law will have to be straightened out in tho near future is very  certain.- There will have to be  legislation that is more in harmony  with the views and desires of the  people of the various   provinces. ���������  Mail and Empire.  LIQUID AIR  There recently died in the United  States a man who in his. time  created a commotion in scientific  and financial circles throughout  the continent. This was Chas. E.  Tripler, whose, remarkable experiments beforo possible investors,  and the extravagent hopes to which  they gave rise, aroused remarkable  interest. Burning a steel wire by  simply immersing it in a tumbler  of fluid resembling water, driving  with a hammer a nail of' frozen  mercury, and making a tea kettle  boil by placing it on a block of ice  ���������all these closely approached the  miraculous. These and similar  doings of his so impressed the  Winnipegers who saw them per  formed-on the sfcnge of the' Winnipeg theatre that they went away  prepared to believe in almost anything else he proposed to accomplish. He visited every city and  considerable town of this country  and the United States with his apparatus and gave public exhibitions of his workings.  The methods of all who have  tried to liquify the gases of tho atmosphere have up to a certain  point been practically identical. The  first step is to put the air under  high pressure, and the next is to  remove by a suitable use of cold  water the heat developed in the op-  oration. Sir James Dewar was accustomed twelve or fifteen years  ago to surrouud the receptacle con  It is dne to Mr. Tripler's memory to state that while he was sadly  mistaken in some of his beliefs, yet  they were honestly cherished. ' Ho  had a passionate admiration 'or the  novel and amazing phenomena he  was able to show, but he lacked  the scientific training essential to  a perception of the fallacies of his  own reasoning. He fancied he  could manufacture eight or ten  gallons of liquid air, by machinery  driven by liquid air, at the expenditure of only a gallon.  One of the industrial uses to  which liquid air seemed to be.  suited is refrigerating. But it was  found that the cold produced by  its evaporation was too intense.  The resulting temperature could  not be properly regulated. Moreover, though devices have been invented which make it possible to  keep-a quantity of it much longer  than was once feasible, its disappearance from any vessel containing it is still much too rapid. Finally, its price is as yet prohibitory.  That is the principal reason why  liquid air is not adapted to propelling automobiles. Gasoline and  electricity are vastly cheaper  sources of power. Yet-,, though a  distinct disappointment as a motive power, and to a le������s extent in  refrigeration, there is still promise  of much usefulness ahead of it.  Liquid air may solve the long unanswered mechanical problem of  an inexpensive manufacture of  oxygen. Nitrogen is a little more  volatile than the other gas with  which it is associated in the atmosphere. When the compound has  been liquefied the nitrogen shows a  disposition to evaporate first. How  fully this propensity can be turned  to account is yet- uncertain, but  mechanical and industrial scientists think the idea full of promise.  If liquid air will manufacture oxygen economically, it will largely  atone .'for the non-realization of  much expected of ib three or four  years ago, and will not be, as it  has proved to the present, valueless except as a scientific curiosity.  ���������Winnipeg Free Press.  the general averages down to a  fine point.

The Society of  mines at Courrieres has just- undertaking in shaft No. 4 a series  of experiments with a new respiratory apparatus called pneumato-  gen. ' Every apparatus 'designed  for allowing the stay in a deliter-  ious environment must fulfill three  essential conditions: exclusive communication of .the respiratory organs with a reservoir of rcspirable  gas; together with a light weight,  sufficient capacity of this reservoir  to supply a man for a certain time;  elimination of the expired carbonic acid which would poison the  pure air. Thepnemnatogen which  seems happily to realize these three  conditions, is based, upon- the,  method of the renewal of yitiated  air devised several years ago by  Geo. F. Joubert. It consists of an  India'rubber bag, worn in front,  about waist high, and supported by  a strap passing up one side of the  miners' chest, round his neck and  down the other side. Into this  bag by means of a. mouthpiece he  sends the' products of respiration  which are compelled to go through  two tubes containing grains' of  oxylith. The oxylith or stone of  oxylith, has the property of retaining steam and carbonic acid, while  setting free a corresponding quantity of oxygen. The vitiated air  therefore finds itself renewed-when  it becomes stored in the hag.. The  experiments made at Courrieres  have given excellent results. The  miners furnished with the new apparatus have been able to work  more than tAv'o consecutive hours  in shafts where the air was absolutely unrespirable.  serve a year in prison ��������� and to pay  a fine'of $5;000.

Offenders too often are. accorded  treatment, not according to what  they have done, but according to  what .they have seemed to be.  This tendency was amusingly illustrated -at the Hamilton . Police  Court the other day. E. F. B.  Johnston, K. C, of Toronto, Counsel for the Wholesale Grocers'  Guild, which was on trial for violating the criminal law forbidding  conspiracy-'in restraint of trade,  appealed to tho police magistrate  to throw the case out because of  the eminent respectability of the  defendants. Such eminent respectable persons, argued this distinguished lawyer, could nob possibly, be guilty as charged. Naturally, the magistrate preferred to  base his action on the evidence  rathor than upon the reputation of  the persons charged. It is quite  possible that they are not guilty;  let us hope it will bo proved that  they aro not; but the fact that they  all have excellent reputations is no  proof that they are not.  In. tho States there is a less  sycophantic clinging to Itespectability than there is in our own  country.

The revolution was not  a revolution against tyranny but a  typical American determination to  hold fast to privileges unlawfully  acquire'1. Unlawfully because ,by  general law. a colony 'owes allegiance to the mother country that  protects it. In our case the mother  country was too busy fighting  France to claim its rights. When  France was finally heaten out of  Canada, England tried to reclaim  its rights. That was where we  stepped up. We sought, not to  get independence, but to regain the  independence we had already got  by taking advantage of England's  external worries.  Wo were right; so was England.  We won out. We got worse government, and have worse to come,  but we became a nation. We  should probably have become a  nation just the same without revolution as Australia -and Canada  have practically become; we should  have avoided the civil war, (England suppressed slavery in 1833).  We should have had honest gov:  eminent and been a genuine, re-  rcpublic, as England has been and  is today.
