To Output 4,000 to 5,000 Tons  Daily.     ;  GREAT PORTLAND  FAIR OPENS  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  S��  s��  General Manager Jay P. Graves, ol  the Granby Co., who recently returned to Spokane from a trip to New  York, is credited with stating that the  company will shortly begin the expenditure of about $100,000 in sinking a  new shaft, to contain three, compartments, and to be the main working  shaft of the properties. Triaddition to  this, the headworks at the shaft are  to be equipped with a crusher capable  of handling 1,500 tons of ore per. day.  When these improvements are completed the mines will have a daily capacity of producing between 4,000 and  5,000 tons of ore, or between 100,000  and 150,000 tons monthly���about  double the present normal output.  Coupled with these statements also  comes the information that the management of the Granby Co. is now considering the addition of another hlast  furnace at the smelter by the end of  this year, making nine altogether. At  present six furnaces,. are in use, and  two la.ger furnaces are being installed  and are expected to be in operation  within the next few weeks���sometime  in July.  Asked as to the location of the new  shaft, Supt. O. B. Smith informs the  Pioneer that the matter has not been  definitely settled as yet, but that it m\\  probably be sunk on the flat between  the" Granby bunk house and the C. P.  R. tracks.-,  It is understood that the success attained in locating the ore body from  the bottom of the winze, extending  from the 300 to the 400 foot level, has  about decided the management as to  the location of the new shaft. The  crosscut at the level is now in over 200  feet, all of it in ore of a shipping grade,  this being the deepest proven workings  of the mine.  Phoenix Customs for May  Whether 'here was any demand for  the establishment of a sub-port of customs in Phoenix or not can be readily  seen from the returns for the month of  May, when nearly $8,000 worth of  merchandise was cleared at the local  custom house. The exact total was  $7,958. Of this amount goods worth  $1,476 were not dutiable, and on the  balance duties amounting to $1,496.81  were collected.  The figures  f.-r each   week during  the  past  month,  as furnished by the  collector,  William  Delaha  y,  were as  follows:  Value  Free  Duty  ist week.  $   660  $ 262  $  160.45  2nd week  ��� 4,159  650  719.78  3rd week  .   1,581  3S0  3'3-29  4th week.  i>553  190  $"  3��3-29  Total ..  ���$7,958  $.,476  ,496.81  1479^  School Report For Moy.

On Thursday, June ist, R. V. Chis-  holm took possession of Black's hotel,  which he recently purchased. Mr.  Chisholm has been successful as a  hotel keeper in the past, and proposes  to conduct a first-class place here. He  is having the house thoroughly renovated, is stocking the wet goods department with the best to be had, and  will pay special attention to the dining  room. He solicits a share of the public ptronage. '  Mr. Mohler Tells About Rail  way Rates.  George J. Mohler, general agent of  the O.R. & N. Co., at Spokane, was in  the city yesterday, on behalf of bis  company, looking into business lor the  Lewis and Clark Exposition now on at  Portland, Oregon. Mr. Mohler states  that the fair opened, as scheduled, on  June ist, with such great crowds in  attendance that the railways could  scarcely handle them. Unlike most  expositions of recent years, everything  about this fair was complete and in  apple pie order on the opening day,  the management having insisted on  this with exhibitors from the start.  Regarding railway rates, Mr. Mohler  stated to the Pioneer that hiscompany,  being the short line from Spokane to  Portland���only 14 hours���would nat  urally secure the great bulk of the  business, and had made special preparations to handle it. The legular  one way faie from Spokane to Portland is $11.20, but tickets will be sold  at any lime, good for 30 days, at one  and one-third rates, or $14.95 for the  round trip. Lower rates are made for  parties of ten or more, being one fare  for round trip, with a ten day limit.  Occasionally specially low rates will  be made for daylight excursions at $10  per round trip. The first of these  will take place on June 19th. It is  also understood that the Great Northern will make special rates, though no  announcement has yet been received  here.

Green, of Toronto, formerly located in Phoenix for two years,  sailed on May 12th on a trip to England.  George Chappie has been appointed  police and licensing commissioner at  Grand Forks, owing to the removal of  L>. D. Munro.  C. W. Whittaker, formerly of the  Yukon, the new Methodist minister for  Phoenix, is not expected to arrive for  another week.  Leslie V. Birnie moved his tinning  and plumbing business this weel from  Old Ironsides avenue to his new block  on Knob Hill avenue, which is rapidly  approaching completion.  Lake I). Wolfoid, manager of the  Wolford group, on Fourth of July-  creek, was in the city yesterday. He  slates that the diamond drilling  has been started on his property.  Wm. Spier, manager of the Grand  Forks branch of the Eastern Town  ships Bank, has been making a trip  into the Similkameen, going as far as  Copper mountain, near Princeton.  Monday night Geo. R. Emerson,  general superintendent of motive power  for the entire Great Northern system,  arrived from St. Paul in a special train,  accompanied by YV.n. Kelly, general  master mechanic, of the Spokane division. It was Mr. Emerson's first trip  to Phoenix.  Miss Howe, matron of the hospital-,  has set her heart on calcimining the  general ward and kitchen of that insti-  tutic n, and to raise the necessary funds,  proposes to give an impromptu dance in  thehospital. Todothis,ho\vever, means  to take a time when there are lew  patients, and she hopes to be able to  do it next week.  Tbe following officers have been  elected by Gatewr ' dge No. 45, LO.  O.F., of Grand Forks, for the term beginning July isi and ending December  31 st, 1905: Noble grand, Win. B.  Bower; vice grand, Geo. H. Rutherford; recording secretary, Walter R.  Dewdney; permanent secretary, A. B.  Hall; treasurer, R. Frache.  Under the heading, "Hosmer  Confirms Amalgamation," the Nelson Tribune of Wednesday printed the fol  lowing; t  "Private   advices   from     Montreal  stati, on the authority of C. R. Hosmer, ivho,  after the Gooderham and  Blackstock   interests,   is   the  largest  stockholder in  both   War Eagle and  Centre Star mines,   that the  amalga-  tion of the Rossland and Trail proper^  ties will go through at $7,800,000, giv  ing $1,800,000  of working capital to  be expended chiefly in developing the  lower levels.    All the parties concern  ed have agreed on the terms,   which  only rtquire  ratification at  statutory  meetings of the shareholders to become  operative.    As G. S. W.tterlow controls  sufficient LeRoi  proxies, and  T.   G.  Blackstock  sufficient  War  Eagle and  Centre Star,  and President Shaugh-  nessay has sanctioned the arrangement  ai far as C.P.R. interests are concerned, there  is little doubt now that this,  the largest and   most  important  deal  ever  made  in  the   Kootenay, is con  summated."  Quite a number of machine men  laid off at the Brooklyn group have  been absorbed at the Granby and  'Mother Lode mines.  A movement has been started in  Grand Forks to send a representative  ore exhibit to the Portland fair. The  idea is an excellent one, and although  late, should be encouraged.  The new ore cars built by the Great  Northern for hauling Granby tonnage,  which will hold 50 tons each, are now  in St. Paul, and are expected here b)  the time tbe tonnage is increased, when  the two new furnaces are blown in at  tbe smelter.  NEW HOTEL TO  COST $20,000  Work  Started  on  the New  Brooklyn,  Messrs.  Marshall and Rumberger the Builders.  A week ago dispatches were printed  from Toronto, in some of the dailies,  to the effect that the proposed amalgamation had already been completed,  and the above is confirmatory of that  statement. At the same time, while  the gentlemen doubtless- control their  respective companies, as stated, it will  be necessary to call special meetings of  the shareholders of the several companies interested, including the LeRoi,  Centre Star, War Eagle, Canadian  Smelting Works and Snowshoe, to give  legal effect to the merger. This will  probably require a couple of months  or more.  Farewell to Rev. Perley.  Wednesday evening the members  and congregation of the Methodist  church tendered a farewell to Rev. IX  M. Perley, who has been in charge  here for the past twelve months, and  who left for his new field of labor,  Moyie, the following day. A short  programme was given, in which Peter  McCurrach, Robert Horrell, Mrs. F.  Knott, Agnes Pierce and Haze! Hudson took part acceptably. David G.  Stafford, on behalf of the I.O.G.T.,  presented Mr. Perley with a copy of  W'hittier's poems with an address of  appreciation, to which Mr. Perley feel  ingly responded. Rev. Knox, of  Greenwood, and Rev. MacColl, of the  Presbyterian church, also made addresses and Mr. Knott, on behalf of  the congregation, presented a purse of  money, followed by a social time with  refreshments. Mr. Perley leaves many  friends here, who wish him the greatest  success at Moyie.  The ore body has been struck on  the McKinley, in Franklin camp, at a  depth of 100 feet in tbe long tunnel.  This ore is said to be of a higher giade  than that taken from the many - open  surface cuts, where it averaged from  $10 to $15 per ton.  J. E. McAllister, superintendent of  the British Columbia Copper Co.'s  smelter, returned Wednesday from an  extended trip to New York, to confer  with the directorate of ihe company,  and, it is rumored, to look after ordering new machinery for the smelter.  The bond for -the Trilby claim for  $12,000, from J. C. Haas, R. Stuart  and XV. R. Norris to C. J. McArthur  and Duncan Mcintosh, recently announced and agreed upon, did not materialize owing to the fact that Mr.  Norris declined to carry it through.  The Trilby adjoins the E.P.U. in Skylark camp.  The pumps at the Brooklyn mine  are kept in operation about six hours  daily and those at the Stemwinder  every third day, pending the arrival of  mining engineers from the east. Foreman Callahan and Master Mechanic  Crawford are the only employees of  the Montreal & Boston here, aside  from Supt. Collins, and A. S. Embree,  the office man.  F. M. Elkins, who returned this  week from an extended trip to San  Francisco and Vancouver, states that  he and W. E. Hodges have just bonded the Fairy Queen group of claims,  adjoining the Kingston group, near the  Nickel Plate mine, Hedley camp, for  $125,000. The new owners are J. W.  Collis and associates of Victoria, who  are expected to start development work  shortly.  Diamond drilling is now going on at  three properties in the Boundary.  Boyles Bros., who have been at work  for months, are still boring holes for  the Granby Co. on the Monarch and  contiguous claims; Knight & Stone, of  Spokane, are putting in 1,000 feet of  holes for the Wellington Co. on the  Wolfard group, and the B. C. Copper  Co. are steadily drilling at the Mother  Lode mine in Deadwood camp.  Eagles' Annual Convention.  Beginning next Monday, the annual  convention of the Fraternal Order of  Eagles of British Columbia will be held  at Grand Forks. A. W. VonRhein,  the worthy grand master, of Victoria,  and other officials will be present, and  the Grand Forks members are making  extensive preparations for the entertainment of several hundred delegates  expected from all over the province  M. H. Roy is the special delegate  from Phoenix Aerie, No. 158  Next Tuesday a special train will  bring about 200 of the delegates from  Grand Forks to Phoenix, where they  will be the guests of the local members  of the order. After a trip to the  mines, the guests will be entertained  in royal style at a smoker at Miners'  Union hall.  Ida Sophia Hanson, six-year-old  daughter of President Hanson, ol  Greenwood Miners' Union, No. 22,  fell into Boundary creek Monday and  was drowned, the alarm being given b\  the girlili little brother, with whom sht  had been playing on the edge of tbe  creek. The funeral was held Wednesday.  New Officers For Snowshoe Lodge.  At the regular meeting of Snowshoe  lodge, No. 46. I.O.O.F. held last  Monday the following officers were  chosen for the ensuing term :  N-G., Thos. Johnson.  V.G., Frank McDougall.  R.S., George R. Mead.  Perm. Sec, A. S. Williamson.  Treas., Walter S. Cook.  Installation will take place the last  meeting night in June, when, as has  been the custom for some time, the  lodges in Grand Forks and Greenwood  will install at the same time���this time  the induction taking place in I'hoenix. I  Alderman James Marshall returned  early this week from a visit to his  childhood home in Scotland, and already things are doing regarding the  new hotel which he previously announced his intention of building on  the site of the Brooklyn hotel, which  was burned to the ground in the morn  ing of February 14th last.  Mr. Marshall was delayed somewhat  in returning, and,his friends seem to  think he found it hard to. tear himself  away from the land of mush, t;ut the  alderman says nothing and saws wood  ���or rather is preparing to have a lot  of wood sawn for the most modern,  most complete and most expensive  hotel in Phoenix.  .To the Pioneer Mr. Marshall stated  that he had purchased the two lots  west of the site of the- old hotel from  Mr. Rumberger, and that the mayor  would be interested in the new building. The plans show a building that  will be an ornament to Dominion  avenue���a substantial building of three  stories, besides a high basement, giving practically four stories. When  finished and furnished the Brooklyn hotel will represent an outlay  of $20,000. And thus do two men  who have profited in Phoenix show  their faith in the future of the city and  camp.  According to the plans the building  wit' be aL.rw.-t 6o.\t3$ feet in size, facing  on Dominion avenue, Phoenix street  and the Great Northern station. As  the lot is wider on the railway end, the  building also will be wider. On  the west side a brick fire wall will be  built. Steam will be used for heating  at a cost of some $3,000 alone, and the  latest appliances in plumbing will be  utilized, together with a septic tank for  drainage purposes.  On the corner will be the bar and  adjoining rooms, some 60 feet long and  23 feet wide at widest part. An office,  14x14 feet, will adjoin this, while a  large, airy dining room, 40 feet long  by 16 feet wide, will also front on  Dominion avenue. Altogether the  house will have about 40 rooms.  Work has already been started on  preparing the foundations for the build- ,  ing, which will be in charge of A. A.  Mcintosh. The lumber has been ordered, and the entire work will be done  in the best manner possible'hy clays'  labor. The flooring and ceiling will  come direct from the coast. Mr. Marshall prosposes to crowd the work on  the building as fast as possible, hopes  to have it ready fur business by the  end of July or the fiist part of August,  and will conduct tbe business himself.

Both the Province  and Tribune were evidently crdered uy  their masters not to mention this important faett  The fa:t is that there is a difference  of opinion as to the valuation to be  placed upon the properties in the proposed merger, and if this valuation is  not equitable, it would be much better  that the amalgamation be dropped. It  is certain that the I^eRoi is profitable  at present, and it remains to be seen  whether the merged properties would  do as well. A profitless merger would  do great harm to the country.  SPECIOUS ARGUMENTS.  The Vancouver Province has joined  with the Nelson Tjibune .in raising its  voice in a lusty'manner "against, the  granting of an amendment to the < barter of the V.V. & E. at Ottawa.' But  the Province goes the Tribune one  better by printing an alleged'map of  the route that Mr. Hill proposes to  use in taking the trade of the Similkameen lo Everett. As a matter of fact,  it is known that no such surveys have  ever been made from Princeton to  Everett, so the argument falls flat.  The Province also reprints the several  columns of so-called argument from  the Tribune on the subject, which  could hardly have been prepared outside of a C.P.R. office or without the  assistance of C.P.R. employees.  Of course, both these papers, which  seem to stand practically alone 111 this  province on this question, profess to  be actuated solely by patriotic motives,  and only for the good of the country.  Those who understand the situation,  however, will require better evidence  than this to beliete any such yarn.  Senator Templeman, Duncan Ross  and J. J. Hill are derided in their  efforts to get a Coast-Kootenay railway  built, and are not given credit for any  sincerity whatever.  From remarks in the press and from  statements publicly made by some of  the people interested, it would seem as  though a determined effort was being  made to fasten the War Eagle concentrator, at Trail, which is an acknow  ledged failure, and the Trail smelter,  on to the new combination, and then  close the Northport smelter. This, of  course, would work into the hands of  the C.P.R., which owns the Trail  smelter and needs'more ore supplies.  Taken together, there is certainly a  power behind the throne directing the  policy of the Vancouver Province and  the Nelson Tribune in favtr of the C.  P.R. The latter cannot be blamed  for securing everything that can be  made to come its way, but it is still a  question whether it is best for' the  country that it should have a lead pipe  cinch on smelting and transportation  also. In fact, there are thousands of  people who believe to the contrary.  There seems to be a great paucity of  celebration talk in the Boundary this  year.    But just wait foT Labor day.  And now it appears that the Granby  Co. may add its ninth furnance to the  smelter equipment before the end of  1905.    The more the merrier.  When Duncan Ross went to Ottawa  he did not propose to hide ��� his light  under a bushel, and he has not done  so- If the Great Northern extends its  line through to the coast, as promised  and proposed, it will be largely due to  the efforts of the member from Yale-  Cariboo���even though he is a Grit.  Both of these mighty champions of  the C.P.R. seem to forget that Mr.  Hill will reach the heart ol the 'Similkameen anyway, and in fact construction is now going on from the other  side, and if the clnrter is not amended  as asked, the thing they aie afraid of  ���driving the trade of British Columbia to the other side���will be forced  upon Mr. Hill. Would it not be  much better to so safeguard the proposed new line to Vancouver that it  may be built, than to practically compel Mr. Hill fb do the thing that he is  accused of being desirous of doing.  The Province also has a, most mis  leading editorial regarding  the  proposed   amalgamation of: the   LeRoi,  War Eagle,  Centtr Star,-.-Snowshoe,  etc., that must have been inspired.  It  handles Mr McMillan without gloves,  saying that the LeRoi is losing money  stead'ly and  that it is a "drain upon  the purses of the shareholders."     ,N( -  *��� thing could be farther from the truih.  j The published reports of the  LeRoi  show  that  it   has made money every  month that Mr.   McMillan  has  been  manager.    Could  better evidence be 1  asked.  In the opinion of those well-informed, the reorganized Montreal & Boston  Consolidated is destined to become  one of the most important mining con  cerns in the Boundary. The recent  temporary suspension of operations was  not believed to be due to local causes,  which speaks volumes for the properties of the company.  William Wallace Bruce Mclnnis, M,  P.P., landed the Yukon commissioner-  ship after all. If ability to talk carried  any weight, "Wullie" practically had a  walk oyer all the. time. In Yukon  political circles they have been enjoying strenuous times, and the new gov  ernor will be in his element when'he  arrives at Dawson about Dpminiorl  day.   :.,--.'���  Admiral Togo, the old sea 'dog of  the Japanese navy, delivered a crushing  blow to the combined Russian navy!  las' Saturday and Sunday when his  jack tars sunk or captured 22 'Russian  ships and took 3,000 or .4,000 prisoners. The Russians were long '.on  talk, and the Japs kept ,mum and  quickly overpowered the sailors of the  Czar when the time arrived. Rojest-  vensky simply was not in it. for a  minute. The Japs will get Nicholas^,  too, if he don't watch out, or if lie does  hot sue for peace.  Reports from the placer mines of  French creek are most encouraging  and will cause unusual interest this  summer.  George Alexander, of the Ruth mine  has assumed position as general manager of the Ferguson Mines, Limited.  'Jripoli, a valuable polishing material, and mineral ink, have been discovered on the San Juan river, Vancouver Island.  The Trout Lake Topic says that  Mr. Leval, who is in charge of placer  operations on Lardeau river, after carefully sampling 400 feel of the creek  bed, estimates that $100,000 can  be  taken out of that number of feet.  ���  Operations at the Eva mines are in  full swing and the stamp mill is daily  pounding away on a good grade of  quartz. It is reported the value ofthe  gold brick, resulting from operations  during the month of April, was$4,2oo.

Neuralgic Headache  Is an   irritable   condition   of   the  nerves caused by cold.    Relief comes  quickly from Nerviline, the great pain  reliever of today.     "1 consider Nerviline a magical remedy  for neuralgia,"  writes Mrs. E. G. Harris, of Baltimore.  "But I never worry  if Nerviline is in  the house.    A  few applications never  yet failed to kill the pain.     I can also j  recommend   Nerviline   for    stiffness, :  rheumatism and muscular pains."

Organs are  taken out and scraped and polished  and put back, or .they, may be removed  entirely; bones are spliced; pipes take  the place of diseased sections of veins;  antiseptic dressings are applied to  wounds, bruises, burns andlike injuries  before inflammation sets in, which  causes them to heal without maturation and in one-third t1 e time required  by tbe old treatment. Chamberlain's  Pain Balm acts on this same principle.  It is an antiseptic and when applied  to such injuries, causes them to heal  very quickly. It also allays the pn'n  and soreness. Keep a bottle of Pain  Balm in your home aiid it will save you  time and money, not to mention the  inconvenience and suffei ing which such  injuries entail. For sale by all drug  gists.

Kurd'Johnson and William  Bailey, also of Chicago, were visitors  at,Greenwood during ihe latter part ol  last week, says the Greenwood 'Times.  Mr. Ilailet had been here before, but  it was , the fir^t visit of llie other two  gentlemen.  While here the parly purchased the  Preston, adjoiY-inj; the,, well i.nown  Crescent mine. T'mm the Crescent  some of the richest ore yet found-'in  the.camp has been taken, assays ranging from $143 to $808 per ton 111 gold  and silver. The details, of the'deal are  Withheld, but it is understood the price  paid was a sti' stantial one, the previous owners retaining an interest.  It is the intention of the new own  ers to organize a stock company, but  limited to themselves and their associates, among whom are .Mr. Ferdinand W. Peck, Samuel K; Martin, and  other prominent Chicago capitalists.  ���  Development work has already been  begun under tlie-supervision of \V. H.  Jcffery, M. E., a force of nine men  having been started at work immediately negotiations were concluded  and the title to the-property acquired.  The outlook for the Preston is very  bright and it'should soon become a  valuable addition to the producers ol  high-grade ore and aid to swell the 1 st  of constantly growing dividend-paying  mines in Greenwood.   - .

"My system was out of order. My  blood was weak and thin. I had a  nasty, murky complexion. My skin  was hard and dry. The iirst box of  Dr. Hamilton's 1'ills made a complete  change.

"It seems to me," said a- resident of  Phoenix the other djy, "that the pro -  pec'ts fur this town are brighter than  they have ever been'efore." Arid the  speaker has lived here fouror f ye _ eft's  and is an active business man.  U hen one sto|K to think of it, there  is force in'.the idea, too. Inside oi  another month the Granby Co., with  its' two new giant furnaces at the  smelter-���making eight ,''in all���will  need say 35 percent, more ore than is  now sent out from the. company's  mines daily, or about 600 or 700 '��� oils-  more each 24 . hours. That alone  means a goodly increase in the mei  needed to take out that ore. And 01  top of that there is ���.���._��� probability; at  least, of a ninth furnance being added  to the smelter bittery this year.  .-''' .�������������� '  Besides this, there are the Montreal  & Uoston mines. As one man put it,  those interested in the company are  now in too deep to close the proper-  tics for any length of time, and the  statement that the tonnage will be increased when they do start tip, or  shortly thereafter,, is' most reasonable.  With $25^,060 iu the treasury for development and improvem'ents, as an  pounced, the company will employ  more men than ever before, and this  means that most of them will he employed right here in'I'hoenix. So, the  outlook is most promising.  ' ���*.' ���������'..  For the last seven or eight years the  Cranbrook Herald, published by F. E.  Simpson, has been .the only paper  issued in that lively town in East Kootenay. For the.same time, or rather a  little longer, A. B. Grace i-has been  publishing the Prospector at Fort  Steele. Mr. Giace has hung on then  as long as he could, but evidently tin  grass is growing too short so far from  the railway, and he is starting up in  Cranbrook. Thus Cranbrook will  have two of the best boosters in the  newspaper business in British Columbia, and there will be two "old men"  to sing its praises to the outside world.  "Beautiful Cranbrook" will become  better known'' than ever, and tl)at is  not saying a little.  .-'�������� , .  .  Some unknown writer- has relieved  himself in this energetic advice to the  chronic kicker :  "There is no excuse for a man to  live in a town if he does not like it  If you have no word of commendation  to say of your town, its institutions or  its people, emigrate. . You won't stop  the town clock by leaving, the church  bells will have the same musical ring,  the little dogs will play as briskly, the  fish in the creek will bite just as well,  and the pure air, bright sunshine and  sparkling water will have the same  health giving properties. Speak a good  word for your neighbor is you can; if  you can't, don't everlastingly enlarge  his faults. If you have becoiVie so  thoroughly sour and disgruntled, move  away; go where things suit you."  The author of the following prose  verses evidently understood his subject  thoroughly :  If you toot your little footer and  lay aside your horn, there's not a soul  in ten short days will know that you  were born. He who gathers pumpkins  is the man who plows all day, and the  man who keeps a humping is the man  who makes it pay. The man who advertises with those little jerks is the mai,  who blames the editor because it never  works. The man who nets the business has a long and steady pull and  keeps his local paper generally quite  lull. He plans his advertisement in a  thoughtful honest way, and keeps for  ever at it until he makes it pay. He  has faith in all the future, can withstand a bankrupt, shock and like a man  of Scripture has his business on a rock.

In reply to a request of the management of the Dominion fair to have the  superintendent of education take  charge of a school exhibit which it is  proposed to hau: at the t-reat National  Exposition which opens at New Westminster on sept 27th, Mr. Alexander  Robinson, superintendent of education,  announces the appointment of Supt.  Eaton of Victoria, to be assisted by a  committee of all the school superintendents in the province.  Mr. Robinson writes: "The department is anxious to make the educational exhibit one of the most attractive  features of the fair, and in order to do  this a space at least 50x100 feet should  be available. If the management can  see its way clear to this the department will guarantee to make the educational exhibit one of the very best  at the Dominion fair."  Manager Keary says the required  space will be allotted and that tlie  prizes will be made satisfactory to the  department of education.  Thrown From a Wagon.  Mr. George R.

One of the encouraging features of  the mining situation is the resumption  of operations on the properties of the  camp which have been idle and the  prospect of others soon being taken in  hand, says the Rossland Miner. Leases  have been taken on the R. E. Lee and  the Lily May, old properties of the  camp, and forces of men are actively  engaged in working them. The Golden  Rule, a promising property, is being  operated by its owners, and like action  is being taken with the Cascade Bonanza group, from which considerable  ore was shipped a few years since,  under a former management. The  shareholders of the Novelty Mining  Company are to have a meeting on  June 5th and it is very probable that  at this meeting ways and means for resuming work on the property of the  company will be devised. The company is out of debt, has a property  which has a splendid showing on the  surface, and the conditions arc all  favorable for a resumption of operations. John C. Eden and associates  recently visited the Cariboo, and it is  probable that he and his associates will  soon restart work on this property, on  which some work was done last year.  2 Fast Trains  Daily 2  ���^ EAST AND WEST.
