Nor was any  explanation given, other than that  already stated that the ore was of low  grade, and no light has been thrown  upon the matter since, the mine closed  down.  A recently issued report of an extraordinary meet,in<>" of the shareholders,  held in the office of the company at  Glasgow on July 9th, will, however,  make clear what occasioned the shut  down, and give an idea of what the  future operations of the mine are to be.  On .June Loth, E. A. Patterson, manager of the mine, cabled his company  as follows:  '���Regret to inform you thai mini', does not look  svoll for the piwiit.and not likely to improve.  Crude of ore Ml various points of development is  not maintained.   Is ]ictei'iiiK out rapidly."  In reply to this  the  directors  cabled  Mr. Patersou under date of .June 19:  j     "'Diiv.etoiH very  iimeii  di-irusied.    Are   we In  I consider > our pust reports unreliable and   ealeil-  I laliinis   wiliii'less y     If   you   dunk  the  mine  is  peleriiiii oitl rapidly, is it advisable to abandon y"  To this AIr. Paterson replied :  ���'In ivply to your lirst i|iieslion.  ore  has  fallen  oil'in ifi-ade. over which we have no control.   In  reply lo second quesiion, mine is a  dead   failure.  Advise you in ah.iiidon. as soon as  pay   ore exhausted, within ihrc-e weeks.''  Commenting" upon these; reports from  Mr   Paterson, tin; chairman of the share  holders' meeting" said :  "  ' Since   these   cables  were  received, a  letter, dated Kill) .lime, has come to hand, which  takes the same irloomy view, bill: is written in  such a. depressed lone generally that, the directors feel t hat. too much weight cannot he attached  to it, as it sug-iresls that Mr. Paterson is taking a  distorted view of everything. ': ' ' It is possible  Unit he is so much run down that he is unable to  face any difficulties thai may have arisen."  Some months ago Mr. Paterson was  obliged to take a rest, owing to poor  health, and T. Trafford Wynne, who  represents Messis. Torczeau ec Jansen  along- with Mr. Paterson in B. C . took  charg'e of the mine '.n his absence. Mr.  Wynne had ample opportunity to become thoroughly conversant with the  property, and he is unable to accept  Mr. Paterson's conclusions in any particular.    The report says :  'Air. Wynne's opinion is that the mine is probably much as it has been all along, though at  the moment it may be looking particularly hnu.  In a mine of this kind it is necessary to have a  lariie number of slope.*, so that a constant supply  of ore may be obtained for the mill, even when  .-ouie of them are not yieldinir a full output. Tlii-  plan lias not. been followed in your mine, owhu:  to the scarcity of money, but .Mr. Wynne considers that tin.-, ouu-ht. to be done, and ihat before  j there is   any   thought   of  abandonment,   furlher  j exploration .-.iionlil be carried <>ut  At the.  suggestion   of   the   Directors.

Friday evening they  put on "Ingoniar, the Barbarian.'-  Of the two performances "Ingbmar"  wa.-, the best received. It was well put  on, and Miss Mathes as Parthenia and  .Mr. Preston as lng"omar, the star performers, were delightfully real and  carried their frying- parts throug"h with  the greatest of credit. The other members of the company did not lack any  of the force, ease and grace necessary  to balance the rendition, and it was  high-class throughout, The characters  of the Timarch, and Alaster, the Barbarian warrior, were portrayed with  force and fervor by Mr. Moid and Mr.  Rayner. In "Brown's in Town," then-  is greater chance for the, other members of the company to sIiojv them  selves. Especially pleasing was Mr.  Marsh as Mr. Brown, who kept the audience in a happy mood from first to  last by his droll fun and sIojv wit, but  sharp tactics. The character could not  have been better taken.  This company will play a return engagement here in September, at which  time they will present as one of their  repertoire the great dramatization of  "'Faust." This can be presented very  well in Bosun hall, with electrical stage  effects and weird scenes. The company will be gladly welcomed upon their  return by New Denver theatre goers.

Victoria, JulybU.���The surprise of  the present session has been the introduction of the labor bill by W. W. B.  Mel lines, for the exclusion of Mon-  , golians. The measure is framed on the  lines of the Natal Act, which the Right  Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, the Colonial  Secretary, suggested as a means of  dealing with this question of such  moment to the people of the province.  It is claimed that the Ministry cannot  oppose the bill, and should it reach  Ottawa, that it will be hard to disallow  the measure in face of the declaration  made by Mr. Cnamberlain Another  view is that if the bill is thrown out  that the Dominion Government cannot  throw the onus of the act on the Imperial authorities, when in drawing" up  the act due consideration has been paid  to the reco'h.nendation regarding the  measure ki'-jwn as the Natal Act. As  showing the serious light in which the  matter is regarded by the Cabinet here  it was by request of the Minister of  Finance laid over for one week. In  any event the introduction of the bill is  likely to lead to a further cleavage in  the ranks of the Liberal party in this  province.  Premier Duusmuir made the first important speech he ever delivered in the  House on Monday. Speaking after the  reply to the address had been moved  and seconded he referred to the reasons  jvhy he had accepted the task of forming" a Government. He had no political  ambitions he said, and was actuated  solely by a desire to see the country  released from the state of turmoil into  which it had been cast, and his anxiety  to see affairs carried on in a business  like manner  The old question of long adjournments  between each session was brought up  on Friday afternoon, when the Premier,  moving that the Mouse when rising-  should not meet until Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Green, of Kaslo, wanted to  know the reason for the wait, and was  informed that an agreement had been  entered into with the leader of the Opposition to enable him to transact business in Vancouver.     Mr.   Brown,   New  political capital out of the matter. Mr.  Smith's request., however was simply  for a frank statement from the Government for the reasons which had led  them to furnish police champions for  Oriental fishermen against whites and  Indians. The debate was useful in one  way as it cleared the Government of  suspicion which existed in the minds of  some that they were instrumental in  having the militia called out. The  summoning- of the militia was, it appears, carried out according to the  formula laid down in the Queen's regulations and orders iii the section relating  to aid to the civil power. Tin's procedure is taken on the requisition of a  magistrate. One of the Opposition  speakers attempted to make far-fetched  capital out of the matter by declaring  that the Government was responsible  as they appointed the magistrates.  After a number of political speeches-  had been made the request of Mr. Smith  was met by the Attorney General who  promised to have all the correspondence  brought down. This is being printed  to-day, and will probably be submitted  at the next sitting- of the House.

Now, this particular editor had  never worn a shirt, and supposed the  brilliant specimen before him to be a  banner for an approaching temperance  procession. In his speech of thanks he  puzzled the lady donors by declaring  that he would "(ling it out forever to  flu; breezes of heaven, that they may  kiss its foldf and till his hands palsied  it should never be trailed in the dust."  The ladies blushed, and regretted having made it too long.

Here  if is cold and the. wind rather obtrusive,  but on the. whole the climatic conditions  are bracing and healthful.

But the snow  is only to he found in the gulches or  "���draw's" on rhe north side of the mountains, and in many instances remains  until next winter's '"beautiful" covers it  over like a clean tablecloth hiding a  dirty kitchen table.  The summit of this divide, or rather  the many summits, cover's an immense  area,and exhibits many divergent characteristics. Standing on one of these  highest points one sees dense,,fpre.sk  lands heavily timbered with pine, fir,  spruce, and balsam fir: miles of dead  trees lying thickly piled on each other,  as if they were the victims of a sudden  tornado, stripped of every vestige of  bark and glistening white in the glaring  sunlight, acres of long green waving  grass on which a host of cattle could bo  fattened, and beautiful park lands with  hare swards dotted with clumps of lirs.  lend a charm to the foreground of a  mighty panorama. Far. far in the distance', to the south, west, north and  east, forming a complete circle to t-i'e  picture, there rises the snowclad peaks  of- mountain ranges that seem to he  much higher than those, nearer at hand.  These peaks may be luO miles away.  They may be more. The eye cannot  measure such an expanse accurately.  The formation is granito, with lime  nowand again Immense iron capping*-  tire distinguished on nearly every lull  and mountain in sight by deep red  splashes. These red bluffs are really  the outeroppings of huge mineral  bodies. In all the instances that have  come under my notice so far, good  copper lias been exposed by the first  shot in these red cappings. And besides these copper bodies there are  veins of the white arsenical iron which  carries such high gold values in this  district On the Micke.l Plate mine,  which can be seen from this point, being about four miles south-west.samples  of this iron have given values of S'iOu  per ton. These leads are not vary  largo, averaging between two feet and  four feet in width, hut the copper leads  are immense. I have seen them opened  for l-2 feet and no wall in sight, and  from surface, indications most of them  will be well nigh 100 feet wide.  Mr. Uodgers, superintendent of the  Nickel Plate, has surveyed the Kere-  nieos creek route for a wagon road and  found an excellent grade, and although  that is the, longest way about, it is by  far the. best route, the other creeks are  much steepen-. -This road will bring a  great deal of business to Olalla. which  will be a thriving town at no distant  date.  The, C. P. R. survey also went up  Keremeos creek and found a most  feasible grade to the summit. As the  Nickel Plate people, want to get in  heavy machinery and have a lot of high  grade ore ready for shipment, it is. very  probable that the wagon   road   will   be  To my Friends in the  As I have, just returned from a Purchasing Trip in ^ie East, I  hiii prepared to show you all the latest Up-to-Dute goods.
