QUALITY  iUANTITY  liU.MII 1HIUUI1W.U.JJU  IIIIILUBL   I  'I M1IW  Two words we adopt when   dealing  with our Customers.  COUNTING  THE STUMPS  Cascade Power People  Pay For Trees  wm  AT RATE OF 7k, 25c, 5k, AND Jl EACH  German Intuition Hive Arrlvrd, and the  Slrltrlii ol the Wire Will Be Started  Ncit Week.  All winter long the work of getting  lhe power transmission   line,  between  Cascade and   I'hoenix, in  shape for  use in the spring, has been carried  on  by a small  force of men, although  some' delay, was  necessitated  by   the  noii'ariival    of   the   insulators   from  Germany.   These have now arrived  nnd car's containing them, as well as  the heavy copper wire, have been   de-  livered'at Hartford Junction,  Columbia, Gilpin's and  Cascade.    Putting  up the wire is to be started next week.  The work of erecting the poles  and  crossaims     was     completed     about  Christmas time, when  the  force  was'  redu-jed and the balance  of the men  set at work putting.in the bolts and  clearing  the right of way  in   better  shape. *���  In addition to this an engineer has  been busy nearly all winter in going  over every foot of the line, for the purpose of measuring and counting every  stump on the right of way. It appears  that when the rinhtof way, about 22  miles long, was cut out over two years  ago, the Cascade Water, Power and  Light Co. managers thought the  charter held by the company gave  them the right to cut and dispose of  the timber on mineral claims which  were ciossed. This, however, ap|>ears  c��rhare(-heeir��ifierror-^>ii- ^tlwirvnart,-  and a costly one, too. ��� Every tree that  was cut down will have to be paid for,  which is the cause of counting the  stumps by an employee of the company.  Timber Was Not Cheap.  Of course, owners of claims are not  disposed to sell the timber after it has  been cut for any more than they think  they can get, and as a result they aie  getting all that they ran. Randolph  Stuart, of Greenwood, is attending to  the settling of the stumpage matter,  and it is said that he has arranged to  pay for stumps at prices ���' ranging all  the way from 20 cents each up as high  as ��� $1 each. One. claim owner, at  least, - across- the corner of whose  ground the line goes, wanted and .got  his full dollar for every tree cut down.  However, nearly or quite all' of these  stumpage claims have now been adjusted.  lhe |x>we.r house itself at Cascade  has>been completed, and is now ready  to-receive the powerful electrical machinery which is being manufactured  at Pittsburg; Pa. The power house is  45x215 feet in size, and is a fire-proof  structure of stone and brick, being  located at the loot of the falls, some  2,000 feet from the head of the dam.  Six large turbine wheels are being  manufactured, of the horizontal type,  to furnish the 3,000 horse power which  will be generated at the outset. But  later it is anticipated that a maximum  of 6,000 horse power will be needed  and utilized. ,  Are Spending $4<W,<Mfl. .  Thus far the company, which: is  controlled by'the London and B. C.  Gold Fields, has spent nearly $250,-  000 in the work, and by the time it is  completed it. will represent an expenditure of about $400,000... The cost of  power all through the Boundary will  be largely reduced from the expense of  steam production, and will enable the  working of low grade mines at greater  profit than heretofoie. The city of  Grand Forks is already negotiating for  the power to light ;that municipality,  and it wijl he used jii 'the cjijes of  Greenwood and I'hoenix as soon as it  can be had, for the same purpose.  The line is expected to be ��� complete  and in operation by June.  BOUOflT STANDARD SMFXTER.  Suaset Owners lo Blow It In Inside of 60  ���    Days..  It is now given out that the pending  deal for the Standaid smeltei at  Boundary Falls has been rlosed by the  Montreal aud Boston Copper Co.,  owners of the well kno,wii Sunset group  of mines in Deadwood camp.  It is understood that the puichasers  are arranging to add'"to the capacity  and equipment of the > plant and the  intention is to start it up in full blast  inside of 60 days. Albert J, Gioil-  well, of Pueblo, Colo.",yis spoken of as  the new'manager, E. J. Wilson,fanner  manager, retiring, C. R. Craig, of  Seattle, has arrived to take charge of  the office. <  - The new first-motion hoist at the  Sunset mine is now hi,'operation, and  arrangements arc being made to send  out a steady tonnage jof ore to keep  the smelter running. ����  The Standard smelter was completed a year ago,  the company's largest  1,400 TONS  PER DAY  Granby Ships at That Rate  , Next Week.  START THIRD FURNACE ON MONDAY  The'Dally Tonnaxe From Peoenlx Mines Is  Gradually' Belo{ Increased���Soon Over  45   Cera   Per   Day.  j shareholder being William Pi ice, (.he  Quebec lumber millionaire. Several  mines contracted to ship ore to the  smeller but were unabje to live up to  the contracts, and consequently the  reduction works were never blown in.  The following dispatch was sent out  from Victoria last Tuesday ;  The Standard PyHtic smelter at  Boundary Falls, near I Greenwood, has  been purchased by the Montreal and  Boston company, owners of the Sun  set mine, at GreenwooU. The present  plant, having a capacity of 250 tons  daily, will be remodelled and blown in  within 30 days. Another furnuce will  be added as soon at possible. Mr.  Munro, managing drector of the Monti ael and Boston Company, leaves  with J. N. Greenshields for the east tonight. ^^^^^^  138,139 TONS  IN X YEAR  Excellent Record of the Greenwood Smelter.  WITH BUT ONE FURNACE  RUNNING  Second Furnace, Now Being installed. Expected to Be Blown In la About Tfree Weeks,  When Capacity Will he Doubled.  'I'he following dispatch was sent out  from Greenwood last Tuesday :  The B.C. Cop|>er Company's smelter  at Greenwood, this morning .completed  its first year's work.- Its furnace- was  blown in on February. iSth,1902, and  with a stoppage���about nine days���in  August, for necessary repairs, it has.  been in continuous use ever since.  During this period it has smelted 138,-  139 tens of ore, or an average of 378^  tons for every day in. the year. lis  present average is, however, much  higher, the run for the expired 48  days of this year having averaged  425 35 tons per day. It may therefore be expected^ 'with confidence, that  the next year's work will show larger  treatment returns for the single furnace  than last year's lias done, very creditable as that was;  The second furnace should be in  operation by about the middle of.next  month, its erection being now well forward. Paul Johnson, manager of the  smelter, is being very generally congratulated upon the excellent work he  has done, it being understood that he  has made a record for copper ore  smelting that has not been excelled  anywhere else in the world.  A short time ago the management  of the Granby mines in this camp  incieased the ore shipments from their  Phoenix properties lo 1,000 tons per  day, with the expectation of being able  to start a third furnace of the smelter  a short time thereafter. ��� But instead  of that, the long flume froze and buist  iii the extreme cold weather, and the  daily ore output had to be, cut down,  as the immense ore bins at the smeller  were full to overflowing.  The two original furnaces were only  cold three days, however, when the  repaiis were made, but the shortage of  water, biought on by the cold snap,  delayed the, starting of the two additional furnaces, which had been in the  process of installation for the last  several months.  But the recent thaw, which prevailed generally in the Boundary, had the  desiied effect on the headwaters of the  north fork of the Keltle river, and  once again there is plenty of aqua  puia to be had. Consequently, it has  been decided to blow in one ofthe two  additional furnaces next Monday, and  if all goes well, and there is no likelihood of water running low again, lhe  fourth furnace will be placed in operation not long after the third.  The meaning of this is that the C  1\ -R.-has been called- U|>on,already, to  haul an increased amount of ore from  Phoenix to the smeltei; and by -Monday next, it is expected that between  40 and 50 cais, each containing an  average of 30 tons of Old Ironsides or  Knob Hill ore, will he taken down the  29 mile hill to the reduction works at  Grand Forks each 24 hours,  Supt. Williams does not anticipate  the least tiouble in supplying this  amount of oie, running from 1,300 to  1,500 tons daily, as he has the woik of  sloping in the best of shape, and il  need be, could probably supply the  amount ,from the Knob Hill mine  alone.  MINED AND TREATED FOR S3 PER TON.  Boundary  Ores Commented on by Wi M.  Brewer.  "Fr6m what I have observed," says  AV. M. Brewer, western representative  of. the New York Engineering and  Mining Journal, "I am convinced that  the ores of the Boundary camp can be  mined and treated for $3 a ton. The  ore bodies are so large and the ore is  so complete'a smelting mixture in itself that this becomes possible.  "This is the cheapest metalliferous  milling in the world with the exception  of the iron mines ol Alabama and  South Carolina, and there colored labor is employed. I had thought that  when copper went down to 12 cents a  pound the mines of the Boundaiy  would have to close, but I now believe  that at 10c and even 9c the mines can  be made to pay. I have been in the  slopes of two mines where I saw a body  of ore blocked out that was 120 feet  either way."  Speaking of British Columbia as a  whole, he says he looks for a steady  growth and a long continued existence  of its mines. As to markets he would  advise the secret preparation of authentic data regarding the possibility of  selling the output of metal in the  Orient. ,  Mr. Brewer was a visitor to the  Boundary camps a year ago, and made  an exhaustive examination of the,conditions obtaining at that time. Last  week he visited the Boundary again,  and made the above remarks in Nelson after his second trio.  GRA.NBY NOT  AFFECTED"  Copper Prices Do Not Worry  Management.  MANAGE! j. P. GRAVES INTERVIEWED  Compear Still - Expects to Build ��� Refinery  and Increase Smeller Capacity to 2M0  Tons Dally.  Strike on Ruby Group. '  Information received this week is to  the effect that ore has been struck on  the upper tunnel ofthe Ruby mineral  claim near Boundary Falls. The  Ruby group is under bond by F. W.  Hayes, president ofthe First National  Bank of Detroit, Michigan, and associates. Two tunnels are being driven  for the purpose of reaching in the  upper cut at depth, the chute of high  grade'cbpper-gbld ore opened nearthe  surface. This object appears to have  been achieved in the other tunnel  which is being driven at a vertical  depth of 150 feet below the other one.  The recent strike has much improved  the prospects of the Ruby group,  which is believed to be the only mining property in the distiict in which  Michigan men are interested.  iABOUT THE BROOKLYN!  The Pioneer is informed that(  (the pending dear for the Brook-,  lyn group #f mines in this camp;  has been closed, and that arrangements have been completed'  ��� for the reduction of Brooklyn I  I and Stem winder ores at the(  .Mother Lode smelter at Green-/  . wood.

The first ..business meeting was held,  last Wednesday.  At Bull Dog Tunnel.  On ��� Saturday when the Boundary  passenger train reached West Robson.  it was discovered that one of '.he  brakesmen was missing, says the Nelson Miner. The last that h;\d bet n  seen of him, was when he left the car  to set the brakes alter the train emerg-.  ed from the long tunnel. . A party of  men went back to see if any trace of  him could be found and they had not  gone far before they came to him walking along the track. It appears that  that as he walked along the roof of a  car, he stepped on a loose piece of  ice and was pitched off the train which  was travelling rapidly. By.a fortunate  chance he went head foremost into an  jmmense snow bank and was not even  I scratched.  j   City and District  j  Dr. Mathison, dentist, Greenwood  Both 'phones.

Mr.  Millar was also made one ofthe delegates to the general assembly.  Calls were made to Rev. Dr.  Wright to the Nelson church; Rev. J.  Ball to Trail church and Rev. McKee  to Slocan.  Dr. Robertson, of Grand Forks,  was the mon.ejatof-of the meeting, and  Dr. McRae, of Greenwood, delivered  an address to the members of the  presbytery, Wednesday evening.  Went to Rossiand Carnival.  .Thursday's train took the entire  Phoenix Hockey Club to the Rossiand  carnival, where it was believed the  local team would ' render a good account of themselves. Quite a number  of Phoenicians and friends of the  hockey club took advantage of the  low railway rates to attend the carnival. Up to the time of going to press  the Pioneer has been unable to learn  the results ofthe games for the hockey  championship. 1  Jay P. Graves, manager of the big  Granby (opi>cr property in the Boundary, B. C, who has just returned to  Spokane after an extended trip to Boston, ' New York and southern Cali-'  fornia, speaks encouragingly of the  mining outlook in British Columbia,  says the Spokesman-Review. He said :  "The decline in the price of copper  will have no effect on' the continued  operation of the Granby mines. It  will, of course, reduce the profits of  the company in the treatment of its  own ores, but as we can treat these  ores as cheaply as any-other srnelter in  the world, we feel no uneasiness on  the score of the reduction in the price  of copper.  "While I have not visited the smelter  since leaving for the east, I have kept  in touch with its operation. The plant  is equipped for the treatment oi ores  by the latest scientific methods and  now has a capacity of 1500 tons per  day. Two furnaces will be started at  once, and if, after a trial run to test  the capacity^of the plant with reference to the amount of ore we can  handle to advantage from our mines,  the conditions are satisfactory, the  plant will be increased to a capacity of  2000 tons per day.  Plans a Copper Refinery.  ."We are, treating our own matte,_  thus saving parfof thecost of tra'nspdr-"  tation to New York.    We are producing blister copper, almost  chemically  pure, and have  demonst>ated that we  can do this as cheaply as it can  be  done in the east.    We are now successfully treating the matte from other  British Columbia smelters.  "While no definite plans have been  formulated looking to the immediate  establishment of, a copper refinery,  such is the intention of the company.  Theie is no reason why the refining of  copper ores cannot be done as cheaply,  jfnot cheaper, than in the east. . At  least, our company has determined to  test the matter.  "Dr. A. R. Ledoux, who is regarded as one of the best expert authorities on copper ores, in his report after  examining our mines, declared that the  ore deposit was the largest he had ever  visited or inspected."  Thanked tbe Ladies.  At a meeting of the Hospital Board  held on Feby 7th, 1902, the following  resolution was passed unanimously:  Resolved���That the directorate of the  Phoenix General Hospital tender a vote  of thanks to the Ladies Hospital  Aid,  through its president, Mrs. W. J. Porter,  and the Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs. J. B.  Boyle, for their good work in getting up  the hospital ball on December 3rd, 1901,  and carrying it to such a financial sue  cess���Four Hundred dollars being turned into the Treasury of the Hospital, and  that this resolution be spread upon tlie  minutes of this meeting; that a copy he  handed   to   Mrs.  Boyle,  the Seeietnry-  Treasurerof the Ladies Hospital Aid,and  also published in the I'hoenix Pioneer.

Tbe programme takes in' many sub;  'jects'of vital interest'to the Boundary,'  as well as to the rest,of the province.'  It is generally acknowledged that  the delegates who attend these meetings are men who have the interests of  their res|>ective< communities at heart  ���men who  have such a standing at  ' home, as to1 entitle their opinions  to .serious /consideration. It is  tlie, gathering   together of the con-  'sensus of opinion in jegard to matters  that , directly affect the welfare of  Southeastern British Columbia as a  whole!   The recommendations of such'  ' a body naturally carry much weight,  and receive the attention they deserve  from' those in authority. \ 7  ' ��� The meeting this year. wilLbe fully  as important as any that have yet  taken place, if one can judge by the  list^ of subjects thus far5 announced.  -For,instance,'a determined effort will  be made to secure" a readjustment' of  the present unfair-two per cent tax on  gross ore output, which bears so heavily on low grade properties; also to en  sure the fullest possible competition in  fuel supply, which is another matter of  the most vital interest to the largest  mines and smelters of the province.  Then there is the redistribution  measure, which has been shelved so  many times by successive governments,  together with other matters that should  have, attention at once by the powers  that be./    ~ -  Work must be scarce in Vancouver.  Recently theie weie sixty applications  for the high and honorable office of  janitor of the city hall.  A RIGHTEOUS CAUSE.  About ayeai'ago a strong fight' was  put up by ihe James J. Hill interests  to secure a charter (or the construction  of a railway from the Crow's Nest Pass  coal fields to and across the internationals boundary ?line. The charter was  granted, and" the new line is expected  to bYin operation this coming season,  active construction now being in ^ progress. ^Of course the C. P. R. opposed  the granting of the charter, as it meant  competition for. the growing1 trade of  East Kootenay coal fields.' The re  suit will be that there will shortly ' be  competition in the haulage of the coke  and coal from the coal fields to the  mines and smelters of the Boundaiy  and Kootenay.  But it appears that lhe .Great  Northern has not only succeeded in  getting a finger in the tonnage pie, but  having obtained control ofthe present  developed coal measures themselves,  has thus gotten control of the sale of  the produc t of the coal fields. This  means that lhe Great Northern can, in  addition to the freight, exact a higher  late for the coke and coal than should  be the case, and more than the low-  grade ores ol the Boundary can stand,  and leave any profit for the concerns  now in this mining field.  There is just one escape from this  state of affairs. 'The'Great Northern  does ,not control quite all the coal  measures of East Kootenay. There is  a strip of about 50,060 acres of good  coal land that still belongs to the government, which; if acquired and opened by an independent company,  would give competition in the supply  pf the fuel as well as on the freight on  the same." But if some of this land is  sulked, an Viflissary of the present coal  company sleps in, and  when the ap  plication to purchase is made, it is  quietly turned down. This isthesitu-  ition in a nutshell.  It i�� asserted by competent authorities that East Kootenay coke can be  produced at a rost of $2.50 per ton,  and should be sold at $3 per ton f.o.b.,  which would allow a reasonable profit  to the Crows' Nest Pass Coal Co.  The present rate is $4. Pennsylvania coke is sold at $1.65 per ton, and  transported 3000 miles to western  smelters, which is ample' proof thai  East Kootenay coke can be snld at  $3 and still make the owners of the  coal fields rich. There should and  must be a substantial reduction ii| the  piice of this commodity which is so  essential to the vciy life of the smelting and mining industry of this sec.  tion.  Fuel comprises not less than 50 per  cent of the co��t of smelting according to  the best authorities;a further reduction  of say 50 cents per ton in coke would  mean that immense bodies of low grade  ore, now lying idle, could be worked  at a profit. If the coke was being  sold as cheap to ihe Canadian smelters as to those on the American side,  every ton of coppei ore now being  Heated would yield a better profit. It  is believed that this coke can be sold  at $3 per ton, and still allow a large  nargin for the Crow's Nest Coal Co.  If the coal people are wise they will  make this reduction before , being  forced 10, and in the meantime all  possible efforts should be made to get  the Dominion reserve of 50,000 acres  thrown open to development by an entirely independent company.  Some of the Boundary and othei  paper* are showing their appreciation  ofthe Pioneei's tarelully-compiled ore  tables by repiinting our figures \erba-  tim without credit. Let the good work  go on. The Pioneer is willing to continue in the future^���as iu the past���  to spend the necessary timeand mone)  to secure these figuies weekly, if its  contempoiaries will but continue to  ropy them.  Recent  dispatches, published in a  number of provincial papers, have been  somewhat misleading in that the impression was sought to be given that  theie was no need of agitation for a  reduction in the price of roke to Boundary smelters because the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co  had reduced the price  of coke from $4.75 to $4 and the C. P.  R. had reduced the freight on the same  from  $2.50   to $2   per ton.     As   a  mattei of fact, when  copper dio'pped  the C. P. K. voluntarily reduced   the  freight on coke to the Boipidary, and  nearly two months since the coal |>eo  ule met the  demands'for a reduction  of coke.     It is the present price o( $4  which is deemed too high  to wauant  the profitable and extensive development of the low grade Boundary ores,  and the present agitation is for a substantial reduction    from   the  present  prireof$4   to $3  or $2.50  per  ton  on coke.

The stormy petrel of Untish Colum-  qia politics promises to be very much  in evidence for a while yet.  It is to be hoped that once again  the members of the legislature will see  the wisdom of making mighty few  changes in the mineral act.  1). D. Mann is at the coast "seeing"  the Dunsmuir government about the  railway subsidies he is aftei. Mr.  Mann is something of a politician himself.  Last Thursday the legislature started business at the old stand. It remains to be seen whether the province  as a whole will benefit from the  deliberations. <  .

'Phonc30  As indicating the importance of the  fuel question to Boundary smelting interests, two boards of trade in this section have adopted resolutions along  these lines. The gravity of the situation is being realized;  W. M. Brewer, the coast mining  engineer, who has recently been look  ing over the big Boundaiy producers,  is enthusiastic over the prospects of  this section. Mr. Biewer's opinion,  by the way, is generally considered  woith quoting.  Residents of the Pacific coast states  are watching closely the doings* at  Washington with reference to the  Chinese exclusion bill. It is said that  one of the most powerful lobbies ever  gathered at the American capital is  now working against the measure,  nearly all heing representatives of powerful corporations.  { PROVINCIAL NOTES j  The Father Pat memorial fund at  at(Rossland is growing.  Effoits are being made to oust R.  A. Bradshaw, recently elected mayor  of Slocan.^  St Leon Hot Springs, a new sanitarium on Arrow Lake, owned by M.  Grady, was opened to*the public this  week.  Juo. A. McKelvey, editor of the  Vernon News, was married last Satui-  day at Rossiand to Miss Jessie  Stewart Mclntyre.  The Eia is after the Golden town-  site owneis and wants them to live up  lo their agreement with the goverment.  I'he government gave them the town-  site, it*says, upon the condition that  they should build and operate a smelter, and the company have built a  smelter, but they are not operating it.  The profession of journalism was  awarded a Tdistinrt_nnd_wel! merited  recognition recently when Senator  Templeman, 'of the Victoria Times,  'was given a seat in Premier Laurier's  cabinet. The recognition of British  Columbia in this way was long delayed, but it is safe to say that Mr. Templeman will reflect credit on Sir Wilfred Laurier.  That press correspondent in Grand  Forks is up-to-date, 'I'he other day,  when news was scarce, he wired the  startling news to the four corners of  the earth that a distinct earthquake  shock had been felt there. Can it be  possible that the heavy reverberations  from the blasts in the "glorybole" of  tie Knob Hill mine, Phoenix, ,are  audible in the- smelter town?- ,  BRITISH COLUMBIA MININO NOTES.  Last week the mines around Sandon  shipped 180 tons of ore.  Improvements at the Trail smelter  have been practically completed.  The Fisher Maiden, Slocan, will  soon be added to the shipping list.  Castings foi the Marysville smelter  are being made in Spokane���the first  of the kind made in the state.  -The output of the Fernie coal mines  last year show an increase of about 90  per cent,over,the previous-year.  Last week's ore shipments from  Rossiand consisted only of those from  the Le Roi mine, which sent out 5,565  tons. 1  There are close to 200 men permanently employed in the campaiound  Slocan City, divided among the Transfer, Arlington, Speculator, Enterprise',  Neepawa and Iron Horse.  Some 15 or 20 Lardeau mines are  awaiting the completion of the new  railway to that section to begin shipments of high grade ore to the Trail  smelter. It is expected the line will  be completed in 60 days.  A  NE.W\  EDITION  webster's  International  Dictionary  A Dictionary of ENGLISH,  Biography, Geography.

Wliethei Oi not he was walking into  the city or whether he came here by  tiain and walked out to hiff death, will  piobably never be known."  Rev. Canon Wood has written a  letter to the press explicitly denying  the statement that "Father Pat" em-  biaced the Roman Catholic iaiih  bcfoie he died.  MYSTERY OP FATHER PAT'S DEATH  He Did  Not Embrace Ihe Roman Calbollc  Faith.  Another Montreal dispatch has  made its appealance iclalive to the  death ol "Father Pat" Iiwin. The  >atest telegraphic news'on the subject  sheds some new light on the manner  in which he met his death. The dispatch says;  "It seems tlipi there was considerable  mysteiy about his death, and it was  not geueially known that he had died  at Hotel JJieu hospital iu this city, In  fact, information only leaked out to  day through detectives being employed  on the case. Mr. Jiwin, it seems,  was found early in January lying on  the snow in a bush at Sault Aux Rec-  oliets. near ibis city. He was in a  pitiable condition when cairied to the  sleigh on which he was drawn to the  Hotel Dieu hospital. Both legs and  feet ivere frozen, and he was quite unconscious. *  "On recovering somewhat, he pen-  cilhd a letter to Kev. Edmund Wood,  of St. Tohn the Evangelist chuich,  whom he had known yeais ago, and  asked that gentleman to call on him.  This was on Januaiy 10, Mr. Wood  paid him a visit, and two days after he  was surpiised to Ieain of his death.  A suigical opeiiition was peilbimed on  one of his legs and blood poisoning  followed, from which he died without  saying a woid as to how he came to  be in the neighboi hood in which he was  found.  "It was thought well '.o.luve detectives sent out, and some of the best  procurable were soon put in touch  with what factt were khown. They  scoured the country in all directions,  but nothing whatever could be learned  except fiom the farmer who found the  unfortunate man. No one saw him  at any hotel or residence. In the city  the same stoiy was told. There is  absolutely not a man or woman that  can be found that saw Mi. Irwin in 01  near Montreal just pievious to his  death. Fiiends in the West have  written that he left to come East, intending to go home to England, and  that it was while he was on his way to  Already a Live U'tie.

The development by the Ashnola Coal Company of their property owned by the Toronto Syndicate and the equipment of tt eir  mines has already been arranged for which  is a guarantee of two large payrolls for  Ashnola. Lots in Ashnola are a safe investment and are now selling at from $50 to  $225, 25 per cent in cash, balance in 3, 6  and 9 months without interest.  Crows Nestshares advanced from iic to $8o in 4 years. All  lots in Blocks from.i to 4 and 13 to 20 will be advanced 25 per  cent, per month until May 1st, 1902 and 10 percent, in all  'remaining  blocks.  RESOURCES  Large Herds of Cattle  Fine Grazing Lands  All Kinds of Fruits  Hay Meadows Galore  Vegetables of Every Kind  Game in Abundance  Millions of Feet of Timber  Placer Grounds that Pay.  Should Not Alienate Them.  ��� A good deal of discustion is going  on in the press regarding the Dominion government holdings of coal lands  in the Crow's Nest Pass. We have  no hesitation in saying the government  should not alienate these lands to the  Ciow's Nest Coal Company, C, l\ R.,  or any other corporation. The day is  coming when the government will be  called upon to assume the owneiship  of the railway, and in that case the  government should not be at the  mercy of any private corporation for  its railway fuel supply. 'We. hope the  Liberal Associations throughout the  Dominion will take up this matter and  impress the importance of such a  polic5' as that we advocate on their  representatives.���Revelstoke Mail.
