12 Feet of Ore, and Only One Wall.
Expect at Least 20 Feet.
There is no possible doubt
but that the recent account of
the strike on the above claims,
recorded last week, is true, but
it is not the whole truth, in as
much as, the ore in sight is at
least HI feet wide, and no footwall in sight.
The manager, Mr. N, A, Wallinger, who has just returned
from the inspection of the mine,
corroborates the story of last
week, and expects to see at least
a 20-foot chute of good galena.
The walls of the eh uto are perfectly free aud clean, and perfectly vertical; the dip of the
vein, not showing through the
vein at present, It is expected
that the chute is permanent, as
it* has every appearance of great
strength. When it is remember
ed that a fortnights work has
not been put in, since commencement, the value of the discovery
is apparent. From surface indications and open out, the ore
chute seems to outcrop for 200
to 300 feet.
Fort Steele Liberals.
A meeting of the Fort Steele
Liberal Association was held in
the Steele House on Saturday
evening, Sept. 3rd., when the
following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: A. 0.
Nelsou, President; John Grassiek, Vice-President; A. L. Mc-
Dermot, Sec-Treasurer. R, E.
Beattie, E, Small, J. B. Langley,
L.. W. Patmore, W. VauArs-
dalen, Executive Committee;
Several matters of importance
were discussed, and the meeting
was adjourned, to meot at the
call, of the President.      ,
Some two weeks ago it was reported that a large and rich
strike of silver-lead ore had occurred ou tho Sullivan group,
and that the ledge was some 30
feet in width. Mr. E. 0 Smith,
manager of the mine, returned
to Fort Steele on Monday, and.
during an interview with a Pttos-
pkctok reporter, said that the
lead was much wider, probably
100 feet at the least, that a horse
was encountered which at that
time was supposed to be a wall,
later exploration's has demonstrated that the ledge proper
must be about 100 feet in width
ory board are Col. Peyton, Col.
Ridpath, Major Armstrong, Col,
Turner, Frank Graves, Judge
Blake, F. Post, and E, C. Smith.
The Sullivan is slocked forliS,-
500,000 and is controlled almost
wholly by Spokane parties. Mr.
E, C. Smith retaining a 28th interest, iu fact we may say that
the Sullivan group is owned and
controlled by the principal stockholders of the famous Le Roy
mine of West Kootenay.

Baker.
The hearing of the motion to
set aside the election petition, in
the south riding of East Kootenay election case, came on before Mr.  Justice  Walkom,  on
Friday tlio 2nd, of  Sept,    F,
Peters, Q. C, appeared in support   of   the  motion,      Hon.
I'osoph Martin, Attorney-General, (with him A. L. Belyea,) said
that he appeared on behalf of

and 12 feet iu depth a shaft has
(been sunk' to the depth of 40
feet, showing the same character
of ore. The other or western
cut is some 40 feet in length,
eight feet in depth, has a shaft
winch is down 12 feet also showing the same character of ore.
This is a most remarkable showing of a largo body of low gride
ore, and is probably the largest
showing of galena ever discovered on the continent.
The following assays were
mado at Spokane from the 80
foot cut, $53, Sti, $54 and $87
per tou. It is said that the ore
at $50 per tou will return a fair
profit to the owners, and as the
lodge is large and gives every indication of going down, there is
evory reason to believe that the
Sullivan group will make the
banner silver-load mines of British Columbia, if not of the
world,
Development work will be
continued, and probably the
force will be increased, and we
may expect in tlie near future to
hear that the Sullivan is,shipping
ore. It Was expected by the
owners that the mine would be
able to ship 50 tons per day, but
we learn that as soon its the
mine is sufficiently developed,
and If a low rate of transportation is afforded, thero will be uo
trouble about shipping 500 tons
per day,
Tho Sullivan group of mines
consists of tho following claims,
Hamlet, Shylock and Hope, and
were discovered by Messrs,
Smith, Clover, Btirchett and

We learn that this company
will start a new shaft to be sunk

order has been placed for new
hoisting machinery. Some 20
men are employed at the mine
prospecting and developing the
property,  .

office in this Province is situated
at Fort Steelo, and James White
Robertson Young, Manager of
the Company, Fort Steele, is the

Capitalists,- for the last two
months, have been seeking investment in the mines of the
Fort Steele district, The Hall
Miniug Company, of West Kootonay, have bonded and are operating five promising properties,
The Lone Star and Equator on
the Kast Fork of Wild Horse
Creek, Blue Grouse on Sand
Creek, Wasa and Mammoth on
Wasa Creek, and the Big Three
Group on Horse Shoo Canyon.
The Fort Steele Development
Co., have bonded the Moyie and
Quefii of the Hills, on Moyie
Lake, the Minnio M. and Tiger
on Tracy Creek.
It is reported that a Butte
syndicate have bonded three
very promising properties on
Boulder Creek, Representatives
of several other large syndicates
have beon in the district, and
succeeded iu tying up a number
of properties all ovor the district.
We learn that another deal
is ou hand for tho purchasing
or bonding of a group of four
claims on Boulder Crook. It is
evident that tho completion of
tho railway and the near approach of good and sufficient
means of transportation is the
cause of this large i nil ax of
capital.
It is reported that D, D. Mann
and Win, McKenzie, the principal stockholders of the North
Star mine, is expected al Port
Steele during the nexl, ten days,
and tlie question ol! llie railway

$2,531 IN GOLD
Rich Strike On Boulder Creek—Gold Galore — 60 Ounces In
Silver.
One of the most surprising and !
interesting developments of the
past week has been the find of
rich gold quartz on Boulder
creek, which promises to be
richer than anything heretofore
found In * the district. The
quartz is of surprising richness,
and small samples when panned
give large returns iu gold.
The location of the new discovery is ou the west side of
Boulder creek   about 21 miles
from Wild Horse, aud not over "
miles from Fort  Steele.    The
ledge is visible for about 400 feet
on the surface, and the ore shute
has been followed for a distance
of 150 feet.    The trend of the
vein is north  east  and  south
west, and lies between well defined walls of slate and granite.
The oro is a sort of porphyritie
quartz, carrying high values in
gold,    We are  unable at this
time to say whether tho ore contains tellurides or not, but there
no doubt as to its richness.
There is no doubt that this is
one of the most remarkable and
richest discoveries made in the
Fort Steele district.   A number
of assays have been made with'
the following result:

that it was much better than at

same for a distance of 150 feet,

That Correspondence Again.
An Extra of tho British Columbia Gazette, containing all
the. correspondence between the
Lieutenant-Governor, Mr, Tur-
*, «)-, Mr. Beaven and Mr. Sem-
lliin, in relation to the dismissal
of i;he late Government and the
appointment of the present one,
pn.tiS the public in possession of
lilie whole history of the recent
Cabinet crisis. Although some
rf the details now made public
aire new and, in some respects,
rafcher .startling, there are new
features disclosed beyond what,
through one source and another,
was already generally known.
T**se intimation, conveyed in the
ILieutenant-Governor's letter to
Mr. Beaven (which was published
some time ago) that His Honor
Saad lost confidence in his late
advisers, ev«u before the elections took place, is made still
neoessary lo use for that object.
Among these one of the most
flagrant was tlie demand made
on the Lieut,-Governor to extend the period for Inking the
polls in various parts of the Cassiar District for 25 days beyond
the time fixed by the Returning
Officer. It will be observed that
this demand was persistently
made by different members of
the Cabinet at different times.
Tlie object of it is too apparent to
need any reference. By having
intervals of a week between the
polling at different places, it
would havo been comparatively
easy—under the peculiar circumstances which existed in Cassiar—for unscrupulous persons
to manipulate things so as to secure the election of any candidates whom they favored.
We will not discuss now the
mauy other matters to wliich
the Lieutenant-Governor refers
as circumstances causing him to
become uneasy as to the methods
by which the business of the
Province was being carried on.
We may say, however, that they
disclose a most extraordinary
state of tilings. Por several
years past the Opposition in the
Legislature have insisted that
the Government on many occasions had either strained the
authority conferred on it by
Statute or had deliberately ignored the restriction which the
law imposed upon the Executive.
But we do not remember that
the most extreme opponent of
the Government, ever suggested
that it would be guilty of such
actions as are set out in the
Lieutenant-Governor's letter.  It

clearer in His Honor's letter to ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Mr. Turner on the 1.5th instant. js almost impossible to exagger*
Certainly  some of the matters ate evils whicli might result to
mentioned therein, form a very j
heavy indictment against the
late Government, and as Mr.
Turner appears to have made no
attempt to disprove their tiecu-
racy or to explain them, we must
assume that His Honor's view of
them is not only accurate but
the- only construction which
mould be put upon them. The
statement in the letter referred
So, that the Attorney-General
attempted to put an enterpreta-
jfioii on Sub-section (a) of Section
-tl of the Revenue Act, to the
effect that on his authority alone
ti warrant could be issued for the
expenditure of money without
thn Lieutenants-Governor's signature, and for a purpose for
which the Legislature had made
provision, relates such an extraordinary incident that it is difficult to understand how anyone
occupying the position of
She first law officer of
the Crown eould ever have ad-
sraneed such a propositon. The
real intent ot that Sub-section is
iwa-y plain. But it is impossible
by any reasonable construction
of it to claim that it gives the
Attorney!General absolute con-
1 trot over the Treasury, such as
according to the Lieutenant-
Governor's letter, was attempted
when His Honor refused to sign
a warrant for the large sum of
415,000 for the construction of
trails in the Cassiar. Until it is
shown that the facts as set out
tuce, entirely inaccurate—which
of -course no one believes—the
opinion of every intelligent and
impartial person will be that
this extraordinary incident alone
was amply sufficient to cause the
Lieutenant-Governor to lose con
lidence in ids advisers and hede
elded to dismiss them.
But this is only one of the sev
«ral incidents referred to in His
Honor's letter, which disclose a
mast extraordinary line of action
on the part of the late Govern
ment. While Mr. Turner ap
p«ars on several occasions to
have disclaimed any desire to retain office if tho representative of
the Crown or tho electorate had
tost confidence in him or his eol-
teHiguoH, we are confronted with
a. series of actions on the part of
same of the members of tlie late
Government which could only
have been instigated by a desperate determination to cling to
office whatever the means or ex*
nedientfs might be which .it was

Provincial interests uuder such
circumstances with a represent*
ative of the Crown who did not
exercise the vigilance aud cau-
tiou in the performance of his
duties which the present occupant of the Government House
has displayed. The manner in
which during recent years the
power to make expenditures not
authorised by the Legislature,
has been obtained by the issuance of special warrants, had
become a proper subject for adverse criticism. But no one supposed that both the Revenue and
the Election Act would come to
be regarded as matters which a
ministry could manipulate as it
thought fit or to enable it to extricate itself from a position of
danger. Yet that was the situation in this Province during the
past month and part of the present one, according to the grave
statement of facts narrated in
His Honor's letter.
But in our view, and we believe it will be also in the opinion of a majority of those who
read this correspondence, the
most painful incident in the
inatter is the position in which
Mr Turner has placed himself by
his letter of the !)th. instant. He
first of all went out of his way—
for it has no proper bearing on
the questions under consideration—to cast a slur on the Lieu
tenant Governor's motive in dismissing him by an insinuation
that His Honor would not have
taken such action had a relative
of His Honor been given a seat
in Mr. Turner's Cabinet. Such
a course is both cowardly and
contemptible. Cowardly because
Mr. Turner knew very well that
the official position which he occupied made it impossible for
the Lieutenant-Governor to defend himself. Contemptible, tie-
causo Mr. Turner did not venture
to "assert that His Honor had
been a party to any such proposal as he hinted at, although
such an insinuation is more cruel
than tt direct assertion. Having
made such a grave charge
against the highest position in
this Province, what do we lind?
That Mr. Turner indignantly refused to act as the adviser of a
high ollieial against whom he
had made such a charge? That
would havo been lh« course of
any honost man who believed in
truth of what he said. Mr,
Turner did not do so.    On tlm

contrary we find him in the same
letter begging His Honor to reconsider his dismissal and restore Mr. Turner to the Premiership. Mr. Turner can choose
which horn of the delemma he
pleases. Either he did not believe the charge which he insinuated or else for the sake of office he was quite willing to overlook it. In either case he has
forfeited that respect which
should be given to every public
man who performs his official
duties without regard to personal interests and in accordance

The advent of the railway i
now an accomplished fact. Witt
in a few weeks steam conimim
cations between the east anj

realization of the hopes of rhU<-'ousti-ueiion of competing lines
|of railway, without which,  true
r|! j commercial supremacy is unat
tamable.    The maxim, "compe
the results so far as accomplish
ed and to estimate the benefit
likely to accrue from this great
impulse.   In doing so it is oi\\s
aim to guard against the preji
dice of self-interest or the  pe
cnliar predelections and wishel
of communities created by th
railway corporation  which hal
just parted the ways by bringin
prominently into view ephemera
and artificial activity as a mean
of  revenue.      That   economi
maxim which measures the prosperity of a people by the envi
ron ing resources and their abi I i I j'
to usefully employ them, has re
ceived a marked exemplification
in the relation of Port Steele an<
other towns to Hie new railway
line.
The incipient tide wliich marks
llu.' advance of railway construe
tion, has come and gone; leaving;
in its train the detritus of whi
loin towns and villages. Thc
bats and owls have resumed their
interrupted Uight. The arts o:
the town shark, Ihe earnestness
and skill of the boomer, the
strenuous support of the railway
corporation were alike powerless
to stay tin1 hand of destiny
which by tin* way has more re
do with town-building than u;
generally supposed. The conclusion was again forced tha.
even the irresistable power ami
influence of a eolosal corpor
ation can not make or unmake
communities at their own simple
behest; but that the people mus,
primarily depend upon them
selves and their country. Here an
various townsites rivaling om
another in their majestic beauty
and natural adaptation. Then
is the unparalleled "watei
power" and another is at tin
"crossing" or on a specia
switch; another is elegantly ap1
propriate for a "divisioua
point", or i.s a "tilting terminus"
As the "merits" of these town.'
were equally supported, it is no,
surprising that none would re
sign its claims to supremacy ii
favor of the other. Hut. the fia
of destiny has disposed of these
little things, anil the result is ii
plain view from MacLeod U
Kuskonook. 11, is no dream oi|
fanciful creation. Those town*
called inlo existence by lhe ex
igencios of railway construction
have gone down like u pack o
curds, all along the line; thesus
tabling influence removed, they
have relapsed into a state o
inociioiis desuetude from wli id*

equally true of corporations as of
| individuals. Now that we have
| attained the first goal of our
ambition, let not our efforts relax until the great boon of a
competive system is ours. The
railway bisection of the West
Kootenay, on a meridian, has
made it what it is today. With
resources of equal splendor in
the East there is no reason why
it should not do asWich for us.
WHAT COL.   BARER AND  HIS
FRIENDS GOT.
The "casual advantage", as
the Toronto Telegram terms it,
of being il member of the late
Government of this Province,
is shown by the first annual report of the Crow's Nest Coal
Company, which has just been
made public. It shows the following :

Pacific Ruilwuy Co., under

companj*   und  the B.  ('.

*] ,000,000
A million and a half, according to their own showing, is
what it cost the people to keep
Col. Baker in office for the term
of years he represented the district. As a inatter of fact the
value of the coal lands filched
from the people is twenty times
a million and a half,
ft will be remembered that
Baker during the late campaign
protested repeatedly on the platform that more money had boen
spent in obtaining and holding
the B, C. S. charter than had
been obtained for il, from C. P,
Railway. Bul. if is here shown
that the disbursements on account of llml charter amounted
to only $M,r-H'i, while the sum
of $85,000 was obtained for the
charter. A man that engages
in land grabbing and cbarfer-
itionger'nig, however, may be expected to lie as well when occasion demands,
In the above report of Baker's
Coal Company tbe value of the
•100,000 acres of coal lands stolon
from the peoplo Is put apparently at 12.50an aore. Tlie real value
can be estimated by llio  fact
COL. BAKER AT CKANBOOK.
Sick,  Disappointed,   DiuguQled  and
Disgruntled nt the Political
Situation.
Col. Baker through his organ. ]
the t'lMubroek   Herald,   says;
•*TEe next Conies!  wil!  withoul a doubl be on dtreel parly
lines, aim I am satisfied  lluif
the Gonser\ atives will win."
The Colonol was well satisfied
thai  in tbe recent eontesi  the
Turner  combination   would   be
returned wilh .it majority oi' nol
less Iiinn 1>.     ll is  evident   Hull
the Colonel was mistaken, disappointed, disgruntled, dismissed and told lo get out, "ami he
got out", Tlie Colonel is not as
good au authority on political
matters as he was before lhi;
election, hence his statements
must be taken cum grctno soli*.
The Colonel is also quoted its
saying, "that he is disappointed,
sick and disgusted with the
events of the past few weeks."
There is no doubl that he is
disappointed, sick, aud disgusted. It is an admirable spectacle, and calculated to teach an
important lesson to corrupt politicians. This Proviuce has been
cursed with too many politicians
of the boodling class, and it is
time that the electors of the Province, "which they did do," took
the matter iu hand, and turned
them out. Sick and disgusted!
why not say disgruntled''. it
would have suited better. The
electors of this riding are sick,
and disgusted with the manner
that the seat of this constituency
has beeu used to gobble
up all and everything in the
riding.
But mark you, there will be
some interesting reading for the
public, when the full correspondence of the Lieutenant-Governor bearing upon his actions in
dismissing the Government and
calling for the formation of a new
one is published says the Colonel.
It is an inspiring spectacle to see a
defeated premier and his cabinet
attempting to give false and
corrupt advice to the official head
of this province, and we can fully
agree with the Colonel, that
there will be some interesting
reading for the public, when the
correspondence of the ex-premier
and his colleagues is dished up
for the perusal of the electors of
tliis Province,
"I will remain here about a
fortnight, and then sail for England ou the Tuetonic the 28th, of
this mouth-. I am going on business connected with the development of Cranbrook, and hope, lo
have some very good nows on
my return ? "
A little smelting and a little
refining. It hits been a pet
bobby of the Colonels' for many
years, that if he could only got
someone to put up money enough
to erect a monster smelting and
refining works al "Beautiful
Cranbrook-", the object of his
life would be accomplished This
next to the downfall of Port
Steele, is tho sum total of his
ambition. But we assure the
Colonel that Fort Steole will be
the future metropolis of Easl,
Kootenay, In spite of nil that he
has done, or will do to injure it.
Yes, wo coil imagine the feelings
of the Colonel on his return to
"Beautiful Cranbrook", disappointed, sick anil disgusted, but
still able lo enjoy the fruits of
his political successes obtained
during 111 years as member of
this riding. "Hut there are
many a slip fwixtcup and lip,"
and lhe gallant Colonel may
lind on his return from the old
country, that his last success
was, when he was dismissed from
being one of tho advisors of llio
Government of lhis Province.

SATURDAY', SUPTKMBER 10, 18U8.
BOMBAKDMENT OF   SANTIAGO.
Grand   Pyrotechnic   and   Spectular
Dinplay to be Given During the
Provincial Exhibition.
Realizing the importance of
providing some strong attraction to assist in entertaining the
thousands of visitors who are
expected here during Fair week,
the directors of the Royal Agricultural industrial Society of
British Columbia andjjjtlie Citizens' Celebration Committee cast
aboul, for some means of attaining this laudable end. A number of communications and pro's') i posuls were received from various directions, including a'proposition for a great professional
sculling regatta, and these wore
carefully considered Ity the directors and the special features
committee of the Citizens' Celebration Committee. After mature deliberation and a careful
canvass of llie respective merits
of the several specialties, tho
preference was given to Messrs.
Hard and Teale, the woll known
fireworks manufacturers of Hamilton*. Out. This offer was final ly
accepted by the R. A. & I.
Society and the Citizens' Committee, aud wo aro now assured
of a special attraction in connection with the exhibition, and
one tho like of which lias not
boen before seen on the Northwest Pacilic Coast.
The great spectacular scene,
which will be put on hore for
the first time, is entitled "The
Bombardment of Santiago hy
the American Kloel,," and also
showing the groat land battle
between General Shatter's forces
and the Spaniards, The following is tt synepsis of the great
spectaciialai' drama;
The Spaniards iu possession
of the country, (Cuba),
Spanish soldiers compelling
Cubans to leave Ihoir homes and
enter the towns, thus prevent
ing aid being given fo the insurgents.
The soldiers and their prisoners aro filing into the fortress to
the left. A large band of recoil-
centradoes are hard to drive and
they tag behind.
Gomez and his Cuban volunteers appear upon the scene.
They attack the Spanish forces,
defeat them, and rescue the re-
concentradoes.
After the Spaniards are drives
off, an American newspaper
correspondent, taking notes of
the proceeding, is seen by Gomez.
Cubans are about to handle him
roughly, but he pulls out the
Stars and Stripes then explains
his business to them, (Cheers
for Old Glory).
The correspondent enters the
fortress although lhe Cubans
try to dissuade him,
Arrival of an American officer
and escort, announcing the arrival of the American lleet, just
outside tlie harbor, As he is
speaking the vessels appear in
sight much to Ihe joy of the
Cubans. The American officer
also lolls Ihem of the approaching land fpi'ces, and the Hag of
I Free Cuba is unfurled, amid
general festivities.
More American war vessels
appear olf the harbor, and the
Merriiiiuc being detached i.s sunk
in the entrance to the harbor Iiy
the guns of Morro Castle.
The , war correspondent reappears escaping from the fort-
tress pursued by a strong Spanish
force, which without capturing
him, is compelled lo retire
by the guns of the lleet.
American land forces appear
hut fall away to llie right tocloar
the stage for naval action,
The two armies close for
battle and a torrilic bombard-
muni of the forts by flic lleet
commences,
Finale - Destruction of Morro
Castle and defeat of Spanish
land forces,
At the conclusion of Ihe "liolii-
bardiridnl of Sttlilltigo," there
will bea magnificent display of
fireworks, commencing with a
discharge of detonating rockets
and terminating with a grand
aerial bouquet and a set piece
showing tlie letters "Good
Night." Between these two
numbers, there will be some
sixty fine seperate displays, exhibiting the very latest triumphs
of the fireworks maker's art, the
whole being on a scale nover lie-
fore witnessed west of Winnipeg-
This magnificent pyro spectacular entertainment, which has
been obtained at the cost, of over
$8,000, will bo given on four
different nights, and will be worth
seeing, and, no doubt, it will
prove hero, as in the eastern
cities, to in; the best "draw"
which lhe Exhibition directors
and Citizens' Committee could
have secured.

Ottawa Letter.
I'l'oul Om* Own CvirrospDlKloiit,
Ottawa, Sept, 3.—While the
net results of the year's commercial transactions have been al
ready announced, the more detailed accounts that are now to
hand offer some interesting
ligures which are well worth
looking over, The immense increase in the total trade of the
Dominion has already been made
public, and received with unqualified satisfaction by all true
Canadians of whatever political | We are
stripe, bul, with the Imperial in-1
stinct so strongly upon us, it is
a matter of no small gratification to Hnd how rapidly business
is developing with the Empire
at large.
The total trade for the year is
announced at the   unprecedeut
figure of $304,091,720, as against
$257,168,802, or an increase of
nearly 47,000,000 in  the year, j
Of this grand total  Ihe  Imports!
were $141,305,950, and the Ex j
ports $159,485,770, giving a bal-|
ance on the right side of nearly
$20,00t),0li0.      The   balance   is
growing, for while the imports
for 1898 exceed those of 1897 by
$21,000,000,   the  exports   have
grown   to   nearly   $25,000,000.
Upon this vast increase Ihe duty
collected   increased   $2,084,6fi3,
in spite of the considerable reductions in the tariff.
INTER 1MPEUIAL TRADE,
So much for the general figures!
In the returns that have special
reference to Great Britain we
find that last year Canada imported $32, «27,000 against $29.-
328,0011 for the previous year.
But while imports from Great
Britain were only $32,827,011(1,
the goods she took from us ran
up lo $10-1,787,000, or a balance
in our favor of nearly $72,000,0(10.
With the United States the conditions were exactly the reverse,
and in spile of artilical obstructions the Dominion imported
from tlie South $80,587,000,
sending back in return only$4.1,-
.122,000 or in othor words, for
every $1 that tbe United States
spent iu Canada, Canada spent
moro than $2 in return. Of this
$41,000,000, lumber and mineral
mako up more than one-half,
agricultural products and inanu
factored good being only a small
percentage of the whole.
GREAT BRITAIN IS THE MARKET.
That Great Britain is the market for Canada's vast agricultural supplies is most clearly shown
by the fact that last year she
took nearly $40,000,001) of animals: $87,688,000 agricultural
products; #15,838,0110 in lumber
&c.; $4,822,000 products of the
fisheries, or a total of $97,782,000
out of the grand total of $104,
787,0110.
Prom these figures it will be
seen that the tendency of trade
is most perceptibly turning towards Great Britain and when
it is remembered that the full
effect of the •Preferential tariff
has only now'become fully operative it will be readily seen that
this tendency will be largely increased in the immediate future,
In the meantime it is worthy of
note that every additional return
only emphasis the magnificent
prosperity and unexampled progress which our country is enjoying these days.

A BOBBLE BUBST,
Reference was made in these
letters a couple weeks Ego to the
action of the Department of the
Interior in leasing a portion of
the water front al Dawson City
to Mr. Alex. Macdonalc, and it
was then shown that the transaction was an excellent business
deal resulting in a substantial
gain to the public exchequer.
It now appears from information
received from an independent
source from Dawson Oity that
Mr. Macdonald secured ;he franchise in public competit on with
five othe: tenderers, the successful bidder simply obtai ling the
privilege because he offered the
biggest price. More t mn that
the lease is for one yetr only,
after which the property reverts
to the Government. Thpse facts
have probably escaped
tention of those who hak'e been
declaring that the letso was
granted in perpetuity ai
out competition.

There was a large and attentive congregation al: St. John's
Church of England Sunday
evening. The choral responses
aud selections wore bright yet
impressive, while the prayers
were read not only with spirit
but witli understanding. The
sermon was "A Catholic Exposition of Divine Truth," We are
glad to say that the new pastor,
the Rev. C. Ault Procunier, having made his initial appearance,
has created a favorable impression, and has been given a warm
reception by the congregation.
As a practical illustration of the
above facts the Church Commit-
too have decided to eroct at onco
a new vicarage for tlie Vicar
and his family.
Rev, C. A, Procunier will hold
services at Cranbrook nl 11 a.m.
