" So far as   can   be  learned the conditions are  much  the same as   those   obtained   on  Perry creek.    Several   excellent  claims have been localed, nolably Tin- Prospectors Dream, lien-  dore ar.d Old Abe.   Considerable  development work* has been done  on'this aroup.

So far  as can bo learned this is the largest bond 'yet made in the Fort  Steele district. This, fact was  known io all parties interested,  and if v.-as desired to keep the  matter quiet until all of the details were perfected, but the premature-publication of an incorrect report in the Cranbrook  pnper has caus"d T\\v.

The character of the ore  is uracil the same,as on the other  claims. ,' Attention is being' attracted*, lo Pei-ry and, Weaver  creeks. The li. "A.

This dyke  is about ;!40 feet wide, and i.s exposed  the'entire  length  of tlie  claim.    Tlie assay .value, of  ore  taken from acro-s the  lead  will  average sfi.00 lo the ton.

A town  was built on Perry  creek   about  four   miles   irom   iis   confluence  with the St. Mary's river.

Tho surlace indications ot the  district are favorable lo good  quartz ledges being uncovered  iind with Jiirthcr exploration undoubtedly the district will prove  exceptionally good.

May    1,���With    the  evening of spring there are evidences oi greater and ever grower^ progress and development in  ' Canadian industries.     Last year  lint   trade   of   the, Dominion   increased $47,000,000 over the pre-,  wious twelve months, which was  i'a.self the biggest up to that time;  indications  this   year   are   that  j-hore will be another increase'of-  probably  **H),(H)0,0(K).      The' increase is not all' in   natural   products, though, naturally and noc-  essnrily.    these  are  responsible  , for the lion's  share.     Mann fa o-  Tvirers are developing with giant  i-tridus.  and  every  part   of  the  country;   from   Nova   Seotfa   to  ���Vancouver island, is  .sharing   in  T.bc forward movement.   It is.announced that a larger bla.st furnace than has yet been construct-'  **J. in Canada i.s to be built in To-  wmto  and   that   others   will   be  .started  in  Midland,    Deseromto  ;i*nd Owen Sound.*  A    NEW   STEAMSHIP   CO.MPAXV.

They are, he  remarks,   a   splendid   example,  ���   tirst oi how   to  do  things,   and  second of'how not to do  things.  firx.t1iclirstcsi.se an  agent  for a  Canadian   patent ca'nie  over  to  introduce his goods and met with  .such'success  that he   had  ditti-  ccrliy in  getting, out the orders,  awl this  because   he  noted  tlie  rtxatit.   condition    and     requirements of the British market and  modified his goods  accordingly.  Tho other case was  that of  the  ?-<i{_>ro.sentativo of a syndicate of  furniture   manufacturers  whoso  i.>ir��icrs were not tilled   according  fo specifications but wero  made  ��i.p  .from   standard   patterns   in  Atwck, which did not meet the requirements  of  tho  market    and  were refused   as   unsatisfactory,  f-h*-i British dealers naturally de-  <:}iniiiig to accept tlie  dictum-of  .fhe Canadian manufacturers that  flu? goods were "'very much bel-  Yw" than those ordered.    As the  i:<nrrespoiident remarks, perhaps  they prefer tlie home trade, if so  they have no right  to  ruin   the  market   in    Britain    for    others  wh^'ii it will pay to  do .business  ha a business-like way.     He   follows this comment by  repeating  cite excellent advice  previously  i^Ipen and quoted in these letters  t:ka.l it  will   pay  any   Canadian  manufacturer to make a  personal .-*tudy of the  requirements  of  the British market.  the British and foreign classes  there is a considerable falling  off in tlie number going to the  United States and the total emigration for the month is also less  than it was a year ago. The  figures for the three months ending March 31st, from Great Britain are:���in 1899, 2,622; in 1898,  2,585: foreigners in 1890, 2,317,  and in 1R98, 1,477, or an increase  of twenty per cent. The total  immigration from Great Britain  in the same period shows a decrease of about 8 per cent.  A   SIGNIFICANT   OMISSION'.  Tt is indeed strange that, when  all other matters of political discussion have been overshadowed  for'the past two weeks by the  indiscriminate , and incoherent  charges against the administration of Ihe Yukon, and when the  chief and most striking of these  .charges refer to these administrators whose home is in Brock-  ville, Ontario, the entire 'subject  has been practically ignored by  Opposition speakers in the bye-  election campaign iu that city.  One would,have imagined that  such an opportunity to'drive the  charges home and clinch the in-  r f  dictment on the spot, would have  been eagerly seized by the opponents of the Governments, but  oifthe contrary the position has  been to all intents and0 purposes  abandoned. It is true that Sir  Charles Tupper stung inlo action  by the pitiless castigation his  worthy son the member for Pic-  ton has received on all hands for  hih reckless and unsubstantiated  'A o <<  speech earlier in the' debate has  taken an'hour to reiterate'what  Sir Hibbort said repeating the  allegat ions 'with * true Tupperes-'  que disregard for facts,', and no  attempt to produce corroborative  evidenco, but the country has  got so thoroughly used to, :he  peculiarities and idiosyncrasies  of the Tuppers that they pro*,  duce little effect in the country,  and even in the House,itself, the,  honorable gentleman's personal  supporters' and colleagues will  not take the Lrouble ��� to stay in  the House and listen to them.  THE liMPOKTANCK OF���TirK HOKSK.'  I;    The annual horse show which  has just been hold in Toronto .is  of far more than  local  interest,  for the breeding of horses can bo  made a source  of great  wealth  to the  Dominion.    ,ln  previous  years tlie show  has  largely  depended for public favor and patronage upon  extraneous  attractions, such as military/displays  and other spectacular trimmings.  This year however the  function  was  a   horse  show,    pure    and  simple,   and  the. fact   that   the  public  patronage  was  as   large  as ever is exceedingly  satisfactory.    It is yet 'more" gratifying  to note  that   the "exhibits   were  more numerous   than  ever,- and  the quality more than up  to   the  standard.     It remains with Canadians themselves to Jget out of  the business fhe  inc'mey   that  's  in.it. for the   intelligent   breeder  and .shipper.  TIIK   INTKL1COI.ONIA.I,.
