Admiral Dewey was elected  Governor General of the order  of the Founders and Patriots of  America at a meeting Friday  night at tho Waldorf-Astoria.  Town Improvements:  The Episcopal/ Parsonage is  receiving a coat of" paint. A.  Neidig has the contract.  ' Dr. Watt has put a neat wire  fence around his lots on Riverside Avenue.  The metallic roof of the. Imperial Hotel received a coat of  paint this week.  T-l E   St.    Ena'cne   mine has  resumed opera!ions, after  a shutdown of two  years.     The  present working  force   numbers  i'00 men.  The ininiug property of the  St. Eugene company consists of  ten mineral claims, situated at  Moyie in tho'Fort Steele mining  district-. There are more than  live miles of tunnels and drifts,  which are opened by twelve  tunnel levels, and a 138 fool  shaft extending from the lowest  tunnel ;">() feel below Ihe level of  Lake Moyie.  The levels of the mine are in  fine shape; the ground is all  caught up and ihousands ol tons  of ore are blocked out and ready  for the drill and shovel.  The ore is galena with zinc  blende, and runs high in silver  and lead. St. Eugene ore carries  -i:l to :"��() ov. in -silver aud 07 per  cent lead. The Moyie and Lake  Shore averages '.VA ov, in silver  and 0'! per cent lead.  The St. F-ugono concentrator  is equipped with four sets of  Cornish rolls, a, Huntington mill'  I I-Hart/, jigs, 10 Wililey table.*,  and 20 Frue vanners. The null  has a daily capacity of I0(> to a00  tuns. The concentrates pro-*"  duced are of a character very  desirable lor fluxing purposes.

There appears, to be a fair  prospect that the Sullivan mine  will bCiin operation again within  a very short, time.  At the present time, it is reported'that the .Butt.o smelters  are taking J'.OO tons a day of coke  from the Crow's Nest- Coal Co.,  and that the latter company are  seeking a 'market for an jaddi-  tional   (500   tons   per day, which  ���they claim are available.'

MAY  14, J904  J. J. HILL VS. COAL CO.  His Growing Interest Not'Admitted���A Fight>to -Get Control  .���Will the Coal Co. be Foroed  to Allow Him?  Tho struggle now'going on between   the   man    biic-lc    ol'   -llie  Northern   Securities    Company  and the, Crow's  Nest  Pass  Coal  Company is one ot" great interest  to every   resident  of .Morrissey  Mines.     How long.it will last is  ,u, matter ''of' uncertainty,   bnl,  from     present    indications,   we  '   have   noo reason   lo believe Ihat  the   works   here  will   be closed  down   for   very   long   on     Ibis  account, aiid a  Jew   days   hence  <��� may see the heralding in- of  the  looked-forgi'Ow.ingaTid humming  time,   such  as  no coal camp in  this district has seen before.  It is evident that J. J. Hill has  for some time been anxious to  get control of this company and  has been taking advantage of  every opportunity lo accomplish  his purpose. The recent find of  good coal up here has not lessened his desire. The question is  suggested: does Hill want to buy  this Morrissey colliery and coal  areas alone'-'. Would this be  sufficient for him, and w'ould the  Coal Co. sell this rather than  enter into a war against his  schemes for comp.lp.to control V  A meeting of the directors ol'  the Coal Company is lo ,be held  this month, and something may  drop.  The following regarding J. .1.  Hill and control is taken from  the Toronto News of April 2-\rd:  The story of the domination of  the .Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, by the'Northern Securities  Company-will not down. A New-  York advice is to the effect that  J.J. Hill isc planning to control  the coal fields of Southern , British Columbia, including those of  the Crow's Nest Company. The  Hill interest in the latter concern was (as already noted in  this column) declared at tin;  Northern Securities meeting the  o"-her day to be 41 per cent. -The  New York letter adds:  "It is surmised, though not admitted, that Mr. Hill engineered  a deal whereby part of the stock  1 owned by a' Toronto firm was  taken over at considerably below the' market price during a  period when tho,firm in question  needed the ��� money ,mueh', more  than it needed the stock. Tlie  Hill holdings aro probably growing slowly: No stock has been  taken into the Northern Securities Company for many months,  but no one knows whether or  not private interests identified  . with this group,, of capitalists  have, bought  further   into   this;  ���Monk or not. .When Mr. Hill  goes heavily inro a .---lock-he  generally does it because he  either wants or expects to get  control.''  An eventual removal of' the  American duly on'Canadian coal  is limited, as is also a possible  ultimate increase of the company's capiial. ��� Dispatch. Morrissey.
