The report is  the   most   assuring  sent in of recent years. ��������� The president,  Ht.-Col. F. C. Henehaw,  in presenting  his address gave a  detailed  statement  of the past year's operations and com-,  mented highly,of the management  of  Mr. A. C. Garde.   Particular attention  was called to the finding of the ore bodies in No. 8 tunnel. This work had been  carried on for three years unsuccessfully  and   had   been   abandoned.   Last year  Mr. Garde persuaded   tlie  directors to  let him start work  again, and   consent  being  given   the   manager commenced  tunneling on a plan of his ovrn, and relocated the main orebody in No 8 several months ago,  thereby   proving   the  depth of the mineral and giving   permanency to the mine.   The   president in  reading the report said in his address :  VThis year.your directors are pleased  to be able to state at last, tunnel N0.-.8  has   reached   the ore body.   With the  discovery of ore in No. 8 and the opening of a market for our zinc, your dir-  ( ectors consider   that   the prospects of  the mine are bright. No time will lie  lost in proceeding with the develop-,  mentot the mine below No. 8 tunnel,'  and it is the intention of Mr. Mathyp;  one of your directors, to visit lhe mine  shortly to discuss this matter with the  manager, Mr. Garde."  The refusal of the govenment to raise  the tariff on lead and its' products was  brought, before the meeting and considerable comment thereon followed.  The successful year's run of the concentrator and tlie addition of the zinc  plant wore also favorably disciiFf-ed.  Manager Garde's assuring report, ns  near detail aa possible, is as follows:  level no. 6.  . For the past year thir> level has been  extended 245j^ feet ahead and how  measures 543)^ from station N0.I6 to the  face. This level canoe into ore in the  early part of 1902, when it was followed  for a distance of 160 feet, where an upraise was.made to connect with a winze  which had previously been sunk on the  vein to a depth of 60 feet from the floor  of tunnel No. 6. The ore chute was  proved all the way, thus blocking out  on three sides. While timbers and  chutes were put in for stoping purposes,  the face of No. 6 level was: driven 215  feet further ahead proving the ore to  continue for additional 90 feet. The  total length of ore-body expoeed in this  level, is, therefore, 260 feet, showing an  average width of two feet. The height  of this block when measured on thedip,  , . through the connecting winze is 125,  with approximately the same average  thickness of yein, while the top measure-  1      ment along the footwall of  tuiinel No.  not nearly so good as in No. 6  . After driving through the above mentioned ore-body.in No. 6,, development  work was continued for. 125 feet, proving the"vein, but not the values. A  very hard quartz dyke made its appearance here, and it was .decided, to idis-  contiriue driving ahead for a while, and  undertake sinking on the .vein. 'This  was done by starting a ,prospect winze  No. 1 at a point 120. feet from Btatiori  No. 6. Sinking here proved very satisfactory and the ore shoot was followed  to a depth of 50 feet. By that time it  was considered a better, plan, to put an  upraise through from level No. 7 and  make connection. This plan was carried out as described further on, under  "Level No. 7."  In reference to the quality of ore met  with in level No. 6 and winze*.No.. 1, I  found it to be galena, disseminated with  spathic iron (siderite) and zinc-blende  considerably above the 10 per cent, zinc  limit allowed by the smelters. Although  of high grade, this ore under preeent  conditions, must be regarded as, a concentrating ore, in which lenses of clean  shipping ore are found.  level no. 7.  This level was started in May, 1903,  and driven ahead for a dietnhce of 278  feet from station No. 7.   The vein- was  of other fault-fisBiires observed in upper  levels, and caused me to believe that by  following same in a south-easterly direction the vein would be recovered. A  sharp turn was therefore made, and for  two months a crosscut driven straight  ahead alongside of theabove mentioned  faulting wall, until the main vein on  February 1st, this year, was suddenly  encountered laterally within a distance  of 98J:;< feet from the turning point.  As soon as the heavy flow of water,  which was struck at' the Bame time,  had run' out, drifting on "the vein  in both directions , was Btarted.  and at the ��������� present' time, the  east drift .is 60 and the west  drift 61 feet from discovery point, ln  both drifts the vein has been followed  all the way for a total distance of 121  feet, without showing any Bi'gns of particular disturbance in the formation.  I may add that it was rather unexpected to find the vein extending both  ways inasmuch as the main fault in all  upper levels heretofore had beencutting  the vein off towards the north east, and  therefore limited the ore within the ore  zone towards southwest.  In reference to the rein I ean say  that it has the appearance of a strong  and well defined ledge with a strike of  ���������north-'67-, degrees east._; It"shows-two  followed nearly from the start, showing f(1.'8tinctwa'ls?.and has approximately the  a good width, but at the same time  low  values, consisting   mainly   of  siderite  and a small percentage of  zinc blende.  It could  reasonably   have   been   ex;  pected that the ore   body,   which   had  shown up so well in level No. 6, and   in  winze No. 1, would have reached down  to level No. 7, but when it did   not  do  so, I ci-ncluded to start an upraise at  a  point directlyunderwinzeNo. 1, 140 feet  from station, for the purpose  of  connecting and at the same time exploring  tlie intermediate ground. ���������   This proved  a good plan, for within   a   few feet  of  the level two feet of good ore was struck,  and.followed all the way  until   winze  No. 1 was reached and connection made.  This distance represents 110 feet 011 the  dip of vein.   Two short raises havesince  been put through from No. 7, meeting  the ore shoot  and   blocking  out a triangular section of ground.   .  -.TUNNEL NO.'8.       ���������  The length of tunnel No. 8 from  portal to present working faces, including all cross-cuts and drifts is now  1,763>������ feet. Of this distance 435 feet  hare been driven during the past year.  Shortly after the freshet season in August, development'work was resumed in  the main tunnel in search of the vein.  One hundred And thirty-six feet were  driven towards south-west, through a  hard siliceous slate formation until a  point directly under No. ,7 level was  reached. No features of encouragement showed up until at this place a  faujt-fissure with an approxjmatestrike  of north-west' arid south-east, or nearly  right angles to the main tunnel was intersected. This fissure, which afterwards led to the discovery of the vein,  consisted of a single perpendicular wall,  showing traces of severe movements.  On this wall was bedded two inches  of  oanie dip-as the vein ii. 6 and 7" levels  , Ic is an extent ion of themnin vein and  proves the Payne mine to a depth of900  feet below the apex. My impression is  that we have entered the top of a new  important ore shoot. The vein is wider  and shows a higher grade of ore in the  floor than in the roof of the drifts. In  the drifts the vein is principally composed of concentrating ore of good grade  and;of similar physical character as in  the ground above. Kb average width  is 2 1-2 feet, showing in several' places  swellings of the vein.  Until.more work is done I could hardly pred jet the tonnage or the grade of  ore thatin time will be produced from  the vein above or below No. 8 tunnel,  and have, therefore, not included it under "Ore Reserves" further on, but it  bids fair to say that the discovery of pay  ore in the vein, after a three years  search, is highly gratifying and of  special,importance as to future ore reserves aud possibilities of the Payne  mine.  .;���������'    PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WORK.  With the encouraging prospects of  finding ore in lower levels it would bo  extremely dereirable to consider the  question of exploring the mine below  tunnel No. 8. One commendable plan  would ������e to continue tunnel No. 8 for  abou 1300 feet toward s wee t, u n ti 1 d i redly Under the crest of Payne mountain,  *nd at this point to sink acentralshaft,  approximately 350 feet deep, from where  three new levels Nob. 9, 10 and 11 could  be driven. The.reeults would undoubtedly be the opening of new ore reserves  within two years, at which time tlie  present ore reserves probably would be  exhausted. To accomplish this itwould  be necessary to install an electric hoist  over the shaft, together   with   an  ade  quate pumping plant, also driven by  electric power. If this plan was adopted  it would be necessary to increase the  present power plant by installing a sub-  power station at Carpenter creek, where  the company now holds water rights to  the extent of 500 miners inches. A  plant of thia kind could be conveniently  operated in conjunction with the present power plant and pole line to the  mine, as this feature was taken into  consideration last year, when installing  the present plant!  ORE IN BIGHT, STOPE FILLINGS, DUJIPS, ETC  From last year.s report it will be  observed that the estimated total tonnage  of back fillings contained in old- etopes  at the mine, together with the dumps,  etc., amounted to approximately 100,000  tons,'which may be accepted as   a  correct figure.   Of this tonnage one-third,  or 33,000 tons,   has   been   successfully  concentrated in the mill during the past  year, thereby leaving a reserve of 67,000  tons on hand.   With the increased concentrating  capacity',   this   can   all   be  milled within the next twelve months,  and will at the Bame ratio of concentration preduce about 2,000 tons   of  high  grade silver-lead concentrates, and4,000  tons of 60 percent, zinc-blende. To this  reserve might be added the   estimated  quantity of concentrating ore found in  other parts of the mine amounting   to  about 20,000 tons, which on  account of  being of a higher grade than the fillings  will require about six months to  concentrate.  From the above it will be seen that a  total reserve of 87.000. tons of concen:  trating materialis available, aleo that  under favorable conditions this can be  concentrated during eighteen months of  continuous operation. It ia, howevpr,  more likely to cover a period of two  years, especially if there should be more  material on hand in old stopes and  dumps than estimated.  RECAPITULATION OF ORE RESERVES.  During the past two months the London lead market has advanced approximately 25 per cent, over quotations  for  the balance of the year, and you are now  getting $60 per ton, net smelter returns,  for silver-lead concentrates, with   present prices of silver 49c. per oe., and lead  $2 per cwt. (smelter settlement.)    This  valuation is, therefore, figured  in   the  following estimate of total ore reserves.  Improvements in the concentrator and  the benefits that will bederived from the  now Magnetic Zinc   Sepaiating   Plant  has also been considered in   the  same  estimate.   Furthermore it would seem  that the Dominion   government necessarily will have to decide on  placing an  adequate import duty on lead   for  the  protection of the Canadian lead industry.   The government can   hardly  disregard the united petitions from a  eec-  tion of the Dominion that under favorable conditions, is  able  to   add   more  than any other part of Canada,   to  its  general wealth.  - In the United States the lead producer is now receiving $3.90 per cwt.  against $2 (or less) in Canada. With  your 60 per cent, lead ore, equal to 1,200  lbs. of lead, this price brings $24 per  ton. less 10 per cent, loss in smelting or  a total of $21.60.

PARKER AND THE SMELTERS  The Ledge last week effectively replied to J. L. Parker, manager of the  North Star mine in East Kootenay, for  his remaiks against that paper, in reference to smelter rates, at a public  meeting held recently in Nelson. While  we do not approve of the phrases used,  especially coming from a would-be  preacher, nevertheless the statements  are substantially correct. Mr. Parker's  utterances at the meeting at which he  gave the Ledge a calling down, are  completely at variance with the statements of some of the Slocan mine owners. At the meeting held in this city  on May 4th, the smelter rates, which is  a seriou- and soro question with the  silver-lead producers, came up for discussion. It was pointed out that although the price of lead had decreased  the past three years, the smelter rates  had increased $7 during that period.  The rates prevailing in the Joplin and  Tennesee districts acioss the border,  were brought forward by men who are  in a position to know, and a comparison made between them and rates in  force in British Columbia. The result  was one of the moat glaring cases of injustice imagineable. In the southern  districts the smelters purchase the ore  in the bin at the mine, ship it themselves, smelt, refine and market it at the  ruling prices, and the amount paid the  miner, transportation companies, the  cost of smelting, refining and the price  aJd on the market, all these combined  would not near total what .the Slocan  mine owners pay for freight and tieat-  ment charges alone in British Columbia. These facts were brought cut at  the last meeting, and the greed of the  Canadian smelters in trying to secure  tbe lion's share of the proposed bonus  was severely condemned. The above  statements were made by persons who  know as much, from sad experience, if  not more, than Mr. Parker does, and if  the Joplin and TenneBee companies can  make money after paying freight rates  and bearing all cost in the mfcnufactuie  and marketing of the refined product,  what must be the profit of the Trail and  Hall Mines smelters which charge more  for freight and treatment alone! If this  is not a smelter graft we would like to  know what is. Mr. Parker may know  something about the emelter rateBof  the low grade properties, such as he  manages in East Kootenay. but from  his own assertion he knows very little  about the rich Slocan mines. The former carry lead with little if any silver  values, while the latter are rich in silver and carry a high percentage of l������ad.  The Slocan mines on account of the  high values they contain are charges  excessive rates by the Canadian smelters, and if there was tbe least pretext  to increase the present rate, the smelters, from past experience, would not  hesitate to do so, and squeeze all they  possibly can out of the mine owners,  despite all that J. L. Parker may say  to the contrary.  TheGrnnby Smelting Company, of  Grand Forks, will shortly manufacture  their own coke. -They have taken a  bond on some coal measures near Blair-  more,. Alberta, and organized the International Coal & Coke Co., under the  laws of the State of Washington. The  new company, which is really a branch  of the Granby, will be conducted by  itself. It capitalization is $3,C00,C00 in  as many shares of pleach, llieeoal  lands acquired cover an area of'"seven  miles, and contain nine eeams, half of  which have boen thoroughly prospected. These deposits will be developed at  once and the construction of coke oven  nearby commened without delay. The  secret of smelting the low grade ores of  tbe Boundary is cheap fuel. The Crow's  Nest Coal company recently increased  the price of its product 25 cent.* a ton.  This coupled with the curtailing of fuel  supply during the late strike, seriously  handicapped the smelters It is to prevent a similar occurence the new coin-  It is a laudable ambition to reach the top  of the ladder of success. But many a man  who reaches the  topmost rung  finds his position  a torment instead  of a triumph. He  has sacrificed his  health to success.  A man can suc-  ceed and be  strong if lie heeds  Nature's warnings. When there  is  indigestion,  loss of appetite,  ringing ' in ..the  ears,   dizziness,  spots before the  eyes or   palpitation of the heart;  any or all of these symptoms point to weakness  and   loss   of   nutrition.

When ready to ship  it will furnish the Granby pmelter fuel  supply preferentially, and with the pur-  plti8 compete in the market for local  trade. At present the Crow's Nesi Co.  have a monopoly on the smelter coke  and coal mpply of the surrounding districts, the coast collieries being unable  to compete owing to high freight rates  and labor disputes. The new company  expect to be ready to ship in the fall  and the smelter fuel supply, of the  future is assured.  The report of the Payne published in  this iseue will be readwith interest by  many. It ia highly complimentary to  Manager Garde and will prove beneficial to the entire district. It proves  the ore bodies at depth without diminishing their values. It will restore confidence in the mines of the district and  place mining on a more staple basis.  Taken as a whole it is best report, from  a scientific and geological point of view,  that lias yet been sent in from that  famous mine. Everything in connec-  with the mine and mill ia iu first class  shape and as soon as thc lead and silver  markets become steady, the Payne will  be able to chip extensively and possibly  reenter the dividend-paying lift before  a great while.  Senator Templeman and other B. C.  members presented the request of the  silver-lead miners for a if 15 bonus per  toa on refined lead to go direct to the  producer*, to Sir Richard Cartwright on  Wednesday. This implies that the  bonus, whatever amount is given, will  {.0 to the benefit of the miners, and the  smelters are sidetracked.  Metal Quotations.  Silver, 54%c per or.

It is with considerable gratification  that I am able to state to you that the  concentrating plant completed on the  1st of May, 1902. has been an unqualified success from the start, even with  the extremely low prices that have governed the metal markets during the entire year.  Referring to my special report and  estimate on concentrator plant, of November 3rd, 1901, submitted for your approval prior to erection, you will find  by comparison with the actual work  performed:���������  -  First:���������That the ratio of concentrating lillings has been 32 tons into 1,  which is better than estimated, ami  that the tonnage of concentrates produced has consequently be increased in  the eame proportion.  Second:���������The estimated mill capacity  of 125 tons per ������������������twenty-four hours, has  been exceeded by 35 tons.  Third;���������In regard to the value of  concentrates. These were based on silver at 57%c. per.ounce,.but during the  year this price depreciated to 40c,  nevertheless the smelter returns show  the average price received,from smelter  to be $40.11 or equal to the estimated  price, which is due to the higher grade  of concentrates produced in the mill.  In place of averaging 94 8-10 baa. of silver and 54 per cent, lead to the ton, the  average has been 103.8 ozs.   silver,  and  No 8.

'  With the prospects of being able to  produce 6,000 tons or more of zinc from  present ore reserves in the mine, during  there seems hardly any doubt that pre  vious records can be surpassed, providing prices come up again, as the tendency appears now.  .MAGNETIC '/ASC SKIM RATING PLANT.  (Mow tinder construction.)  Until recently all zinc ores in IheSlo-  can. whether associated with galena or  founrl otherwise, had been entiiely disregarded and neglected as a mineral of  any value.  In the upper ore-zones only a small  quantity of zinc-blende is generally associated with the galena, on which the  smelters in the earlier days, placed no  penalties. Different conditions existed  in a number of the mines located at  lower altitudes, where the galena was  highly disseminated with a zinc-blende  that carried good silver values, but  nevertheless could not be sold to advantage and was therefore avoided.  An attempt was made a few years ago  to ship 1,500 tons of zinc to Swansea,  England, but stranded on account of the  sudden death of the promoter. After  this unsuccessful efi'ort the zinc ores  were left on the dumps, or went through  tlie tail races as so much waste.  In the meantime the   percentage  of  (proves the silver-lead product, and adds  the zine-blendo as a valuable by-product.  I can furthermore assure you that the  extra cost of concentration���������including  a legitimate loss of values in milling���������  is readily offset by the lesser cost of  mining, and expensive handsorting in  the stopes.  All concentrating ore will hereafter  be extracted from wall to wall, regardless of high or low values, andnomater-  ial that pays to concentrate will be permitted to remain in the mine or go to  the dumps. Hand-sorting of clean ore  w,ill not be done in the mine as heretofore, but in broad daylight at the concentrator, befoie entering the mill.  This constitutes a part of the crusher-  man's duties.   Prior to sorting, all fine  the    next . eighteen    or    twenty-four   material is screened out througl  months, I am able to predict a bright  future for zinc, audit will be readily  Been that the revenues from this byproduct from now on will be an important factor to contend with.  ���������  h a spec-  zinc kept increasing in   the  galena   in  60 per cent, in lead, thus making up for | nearly all the mines,   and   necessitated  the lower metal quotations.     The   net j the smelters placing a JO per cent, limit  earnings of concentrator were$35,706.06,  plus $3,000 for value of  zinc   on   hand,  equal to $38,706.06.

In a number of instances  the penalty was severely felt, as only a  few mines were in a  position   to   keep  REVIEW OF PAST YEAR.  In regard to the future of the Payne  mine 1 shall forbear from making promises that necessarily will have to depend  on future developments, as well as fair  prices for silver, lead and spelter. At  the same time I. beg leave to call your  attention to certain' features '.that compare favorably with conditions three  J years ago. At that time tunnel No. 5  had little or no ore exposed in the floor,  while today the main vein with pay-ore  has been proved to a depth of 360 feet  below No. 5, and 900 feet below the  apex.  I have stated in my last year's report,  and I desire to repeatth.it the true   fie-  i������ i)i ������!��������� to in ,������������������.���������  .      ii   t i        i         ~..~.*...������ u.   fuoiuuii   to   Keep  ������������������ * ucbiic to iepuaLiii.ii me true   lie-  S^niT        * bew'|WIthinthe,imit.andannmberofprop-   sure nature of the Pavne vein  with  its  received per ton  of  concentrates,   nnd   oi.f{��������������� ,..:������i. ok-__.i-m _.. ..*    f     ..     .   , "      .        .  receded per ton  of  concentrates,   and ,'erties with 25 and 30 per cent   yinc  in  the  net   profits  increased   by  $11,365 j'he galena could not, for this reason/.be  equal to a net total earning of  $50 000  Fourth:���������In regard to the zinc-blend  by-product, it will be observed that 1391 J  operated to advantage  During 1902 the zinc limit was changed  from 10 per cent, to 8 per cent,   and   it  ��������� , ��������� ���������       ��������� *^fv.. i-i~ni'. i/u o i'ui   cent    anri    if  tons have been  produced   in   the   mill, became evident, more so than ever, that  during the year representmg $11,329.87. | something had to be done to  This amount compensates in a measure, the contiuaily increasing penalties   En-'  fur the lower pnees of metas.

The net ton  nage of silver-lead concentrates produced wan 1247. The gross tonnage put  through the mill was 40,028 tons.  The estimated tonnage in reserve is  approximately 87,000 tons, thus the concentrator will have a supply on hand  for not leBs than eighteen months and  more probably two years.  One difficulty experienced in operating was shortage of water during two  months of the dry eeason, which held  the capacity and efficiency of the mill  back to some extent, and for a short  time the mill could only be run on one  shift. This feature will be overcome  before the dry season sets in this  year,  are concerned  While construct ing ymir, concentrator  iii fall of 1901, provisions were made to  eave zinc values, and an accumulation of  several hundred tons of 43 to45 percent  bunded arrangement of minerals, is both  characteristic and lavorable for deeper  prospecting. Lean strata such as found  in all mines, and of Which No. 5 tunnel  is an example, must be expected, also a  hard formation, which will have to be  counteracted,by the exclusive U6e of  power drills; "'"Subterranean water, will  no doubt, make its appearance further  down, but can be overcome.  Zinc-blende is now disseminated with  the galena to afar greater extent than  heretofore, and one of the most important features of the past year has, therefore, been the happy solution of concentration and separation of zinc-blende  from the galena, whereby a valuable byproduct is added.     I   have   mentioned  zinc co centrales .were   made   hPtween   elsewhere that the constantly inereas-  Jiuie 1902 and January 1903, with the  hopes of securing a market. This lot  has now been dispoPed of in Kansas  and netted over $8,300. You will readily  appreciate that this first attempt in the  zinc business was fairly good for a starter,  when remembered that the zinc wjs produced as a mere by-product.  In the meantime I  found by  careful  experiments and tests that a far  higher  ve,      -        ���������    ,       ,   ���������> [ K''ade of zinc-blende can be made bv mv-  * .������ty miners inches of water have  re-  ing the ores a slight roast, whe eby   the  cently been granted ns, made up partly  (spathic) iron is partlv    onverSf i^o  from an adjacent stream,  and   partly > an oxide of iron, in which form   it   hi  from mine, water running out of tunnel comes an artificial magnetite,   and can  ing percentage of zinc seriouely threat  ened to increase penalties  imposed  by  the ���������melters, but with the present  system of milling it will readily  be  seon  that this feature has been entirelyover-  come.   All ore of a complex nature can  now be concentrated into a silver-lead  I product of an even higher  grade   than  the former clean shipping ore, whilethe  zinc-blende is yielding a by-product of  a high commercial value.    By  having  the   preaent  complete and  successful  concentrating plant installed and paid  for, together with   the  Magnetic  Zinc  Separating plant, now under construe-  ial trommel while large pieces of ore  and waste are sorted out by the crusher-  tender, thereby accomplishing a mater-'  ial saving. I am quite convinced that  the ensuing year, bj'' the above method  of mining and concentrating, together  with the introduction of additional  machine drills will show a material reduction of all operating expenses.  In presenting my report for the fiscal  year 1902-3,1 desireto state that it has  been my earnest effort to submit an unbiased and thorough representation of  existing conditions.  On behalf of the B. C. management I  beg to tender my respects to the presj-  dentand board of directors for their  ardent support, which under local difficulties always proved a source of rare  gratification.  I also wish to extend my thanks to  Mr. Sam F. Parrish, E.

Local News Notes.  More men were added to the force at  Rambler this week.  '  P. II. Murphy, formerly  of   the   Filbert, is back again to town.  Mayor Grimmett is fixing up around  his ranche near Slocan lake.  J. M. Harris is expected . to return  1 from Virginia the coining week.  All miner's licenses expire in about a  week. Don't fail to renew yours before  it is too late.  The miners unions of thp Crow's Nest  collieries have withdrawn from the  Western Federation and joined the  United Mine Worker? of America, one  of the strongest organised labor bodies  in the world.  Many will be pleased to know that  Rev. R. J. Mclntyre has been retained in  charge of the Methodist church here by  the conference held in Victoria the past  week. Rev. A. M. Sanford, formerly of  "this city, is transferred from Rossland  to Nanainio.  There is much grumbling in town at  the clerk of the weather, but there are  others who have a kick coming. Ten feet  of snow fell in parts of Montana last  Wednesday, and the C. P. R. had to use  a'"rotary to cl������ar the snow off the track  neir Frank early in the week.  The latest paper to enter the journalistic world is the "Despatch," published  in the new town of Morrissey Mines. It  is n neat, newsy 5-column 8 page print,  with patent inside, and is devoted to  interests of the Crow'sNest coal mining  districts. Tlie Despatch starts out with  a liberal advertising patronage, and the  Review wishes it every suecesp.  A waterwheel, which furnishes no  power, has been placed in position at  the mouth of the flume, near the Ivoo-  tenay hotel. A rubberneck the other  day inquired of a bystander what it was  put there for, and was told "Just to  keep the water moving." However, it  looks as if the wheel will shortly follow  suit. The water is increasing in volume  bringing down rocks is quantity, and  tlie slivers now* are flying in the air.  Rev. Father Cote left on  Wednesday  for his new field of labor,  Blezard  Valley,   a    French-Canadian,   settlement,  near Sudbury, Out. His departure from  town  ia   regretted  by many, irrespective of denomination. On Tuesday evening Father Cote was   presented with  a  purse and address  by St. Joseph's congregation.   The presentation was made  by Mrs. T. Fox and the address read by  Mr. Geo. McDonald, who on  behalf of  the parish expressed their regret at his  departure.     Father   Cote   was  visibly  affected   and   made a feeling reply, in  which he thanked   the  donors  for the  appreciation shown for his services, and  assuring   his- hearers ��������� he would never  forgot the kindness shown him while  residing in Sandon.  ���������COMMUNICATIONS.  From Geo. Huston, secretary of the  6ehooi board, asking for payment of a  small accouut-which had been paid by  them for shoveling snow around the  school. His request was ordered filed  and the clerk instructed to notify the  board thataa the amount allowed for  janitor work for the month during  which the liability was incurred has already been paid they could not legally  allow the account.  From Macdonald & Johnstone, solicitors, stating a writ had already been  issued against G. M. Sproat to recover  tax money due the city.  From Geo. Waite, asking for a ten  days'leave of absence extending from  June 10th to the 20th inst. The request  was granted.  The report of the scavenger was received for the month of April. It  showed collections to amount to $65.  The city clerk was instiucted to proceed against all delinquent Traders  License holders providing the raine  have not been aettied for by the first  day of June 1903.  The council decided to take immediate action to have the phack and ' temporary fire hall removed. Tenders are  to be called for the removal of the same  as well as building a side walk in front  of the K. & S. depot to connect, with the  one in front of the Denver house, either  separately or in conjunction.

To summarize the advantages of the  Trans-Canada railway it may be  said :  It will be the shortest line from ocean  to ocean by 370 miles.  It will bo shorter than any other line  from Liverpool to Japan by 720 miles. '������������������  Ita highest summit will only be 2,850  feet above tide, as compared with--.5,400  feet on the Canadian Pacific, and "8^242  feet on the Union Pacific,.and it- is expected to have much easier grades than  any other transcontinental route'.  It will ran altogether through Canadian territory, and will serve Canadian  ports only, Quebec and Montreal in  summer, and Halifax and St. John in  winter, and on account of its .northern  position this trade cannot be diverted  to United States points.  It will give breadth to'Canada, and  will be an impregnable military line. -;  '' It can be as quickly built as any other  line, and by branch-lines and and connections will--give. Montreal, Ottawa,  Toronto and, Winnipeg a shorter route  to the Pacific coast than any other.  It will develop the new'back. country  of Ontario and Quebec in the' James  Bay territory, and will unite tide water  of the St. Lawrence.  It will give Mann & McKenzio's system on the Saskatchewan an outlet to  the sea 400 to 500 miles shorter than  their present route via Port Arthur.  A Story With a Bad Moral.  In a prosperous town in Mexico lives  a merchant whose wealth grew ont of  a combination of good luck and drunk-  neas.- An uncontrollable deBire for  drink cost him position after position,  and he drifted down to Mexico and became a news agent. He sold lottery  tickets. He had to report on drawing  day what unsold tickets he had and forward them. He got drunk the day, before one of the big drawings: Two days  ���������later he sobered up and found himself  in posession of several hundred dollars'  worth of unsold tickets. He did not  possess $10 in the world. lie examined  the list and found that a number of the  unsold tickets had drawn prizes aggregating $35,000 in gold.   He collected the  Another shift was added, Monday to  the two now already engaged in driving  No. 5 tunnel-at the Star mine.'

A practical woman remarked the  other day, says an exchange, that the  most interesting things iii the newspapers to her are the' advertising  columns, "Long ago," said she, "Iquit  buying from those who did not advertise. It always seems to me that the  merchant who advertises invitee me to  trade with him, while theone who does  not advertise impresses me wiidi the  idea that he doesn't care 'enough, for  my trade to ask for it. Then, too, I  have found that the merchant who advertises has fresher goods, for the reason, I suppose, he sells more."
