A   coast   newspapes   states    that  some attention is likely to be direct  ed toward working for placer  gold  the   sand   on   the   north   beach    of  Graham island.     The chief difficulty  I hat faces the.operators   is the   fine  quality ofthe gold particles,   which  are   much   in the nature of the flour  or   flakey   variety.     Then there are  the heavy seas which, up to the present have rendered effective work an  impossibility.       A   few   years   ago,  says tlie report,   many   pre-emptors  and others   around   Tow   hill,   with  primitive     methods     demonstrated  that the sand was rich in gold,   and  some of them  are  alleged   to   have  made fairly good clean-ups.  An important move for Rossland,  Trail, and that part of the Kootenays  was made last week, when a splendid  exhibit of ore and smelter  products  was   prepared   and    forwarded    to  Vancouver.     On arrival   there,   the  heavy boxes will  be   unpacked   and  the contents arranged in   the   space  already set aside  for  Rosslivnd   and  Trail,   in   the   Vancouver   Progress  Club's building.     There   it  will   remain as a permanent  exhibit, to   be  inspected by  sightseers to   Vancouver and it will undoubtedly act  as a  big   magnet  for  this section.    The  ore exhibit sent   by   Rossland   is   a  splendid  one,   the   total   weight   of  ore sent being oiie thousand pounds.  The space at disposal is twenty feet  long and the   material   supplied   by  Rossland and  Trail   will   form   one  exhibit with   the   ore,   arranged   in  pyramids   at one   end, -the smelter  products at the other.     Everything  will be distinctly  and neatly labelled  so that there will be no doubt as to  the  point  of origination  being impressed on visitors at  the   Progress  Club building.  ���77'.'.;. ���preTqtmages^,    ��� ������.   ������ :au������eu, lo/      Following are the; returns ofthe  that they are in  the   market.

Didier     Pitre,    the      sensational  Premier's Railway Policy  "  The   railway  policy   inaugurated  by Sir Richard McBride some years  ago seems to be   working out   very  satisfactorily.     The rapid   progress  made   by    the   different     railways  whose bonds are guaranteed by the  government are proof of this.     The  Canadian Northern has 220 miles of  steel laid on the  mainland.     It   has  completed   the-grading   of  another  120-miles,   while  grading   work   is  progressing on yet another 60.   The  construction has involved the building of nineteen steel   bridges, all of  which   are   practically    completed^  over "eight- of which   trains   are  now   running.    On   the   Island   87  miles of tracking has been finished.  The grading of 65 miles is- in hand.  Both on Vaucouver island   and   the  mainland the terms of the   contract  with   the    government   are   being  lived up-to, so   that   the   Canadian  Northern will be in operation at the  time-specified.--  It is the" same with  the   Kettle    River   Valley   railway,  where - the   construction    ,is-being  carried .on- as   rapidly-^ as possible.-  Eighteen miles rof this'road are now  in operation.-   On the'Pacific Great  Eastern there-are now some   5,000  men employed.    Sir Richard   states  th^t by next year  that railway   will  be running trains from Tidewater to  Lillooet.     These   figures  and statements cannot be questioned.

Cork is the bark of an oak which  is at present found in large quantities only in Spain and Portugal.
