Important Alterations in the Mineral Act  of 1896���������Proposed by the Committee on  Mining. j,  The standing committee on mining  are proposing some important changes  in the mining laws of British Columbia. Among others the most sweeping  are as follows:���������Before receiving a fi-ee  miner's certificate an alien must declare his intention, of becoming a British (subject ; security for damages to  occupants or owners of lands entered  upan for mining purposes is only to be  demanded by the mining recorder, if  the owners request it; the number of  adjoining claims', on one of which assessment work done shall be allowed  to count for all, is limited to eight; all  surface rights on a mineral claim, except l-hose actually required for mining operations, are to remain vested in  tlie Crown ; work done surveying a  claim is to count as assessment work  up to $100 ; notice of completion of  assessment work must be advertised  in a paper published in the mining  division or the nearest to it; mines are  no longer allowed to be held as real  estate ; a search permit can be grante-d  for, three months, during which the  ground covered by it shall not be ;open  to senrch hy any other miner ; a written agreement is necessary to holel an  interest in a mining claim.  A TERMINAL POINT.  Nothing can be more assuring lo  those, who have been maintaining for  mi long that Itevelstoke is the natural  distributing point for Kootenay, than  the indications how quietly appearing  one by cine, that outsiders are beginning to fall in with their opinions aud  to give them' practical shape. The  Dominion Government have adopted  this place for a cold storage point in  connection with their scheme for as-  isfance to Northwest creameries, Air.  Brooks hits opened 11 wholesale fruit  and produce warehouse here and the  Toronto Type Foundry Co. have  secured space in C. B. Hume & Co's.  warehouse und will handle their goods  here for the Kootenay market. Besides all this our local firm arc launching out into the wholesale business,  one of the surest signs of development  into a commercial centre. The. Hl.11-  a_.ii commends (hose facts ,to the  notice of the C.P.R. That railroad bus  the choice before it of establishing a distributing point here at once .or of, retarding what can lie so plainly seen to  be the natural destiny of this place.  Air. Kellie foretold from his place in  the legislature the other clay that  Itevelstoke would become one of -the.  greatest cities in the province. If the  C. P. R.'will only take the hull by the  horns, and make a terminal point here  at once, in-Lead of waiting-until absolutely forced by the conditions .of  their business to do so. his prediction  would come true with an astonishing  rapidly. The*increase in the population of Kootenay will, we believe, ex  feed the record of stampedes, during  the coming summer. There woulel be  nothing to be surprised at if the next  few months saw 11 grater number of  inhabitants in this di-.t_.ct than there  are now in' the;, whole province. Every  indication points that way. And  every indic-titiem points out Itevelstoke  as the point, at. which the"supplying  of this" {"opulation will have to" be'  htncllcd. This opinion is not- confined  to "our own people.'' Numbers of business men visiting Kootenay have  recognized the fact.. It is one which  is well worth serious consideration by  the controlling powers of  our great  railway. - -    -  *   Address to  Rev. T. S. Glassford.  The following adelress was presented  lo the Rev. T. S. Glassford at a farewell social given in Donald, an account  of which appeared in our last issue.  Donald, B. C., April 0th, 1807.  Kev. T. S. G1.A66i.O-U., B. A.,  Donald, B. C.  Rev. and Dear Sir:. We, the members, ndheients and friends of the  Presbyterian church, in Donald, feel  that-we c-annet-allow__yoii_ti>--leave-iis  without expressing in some small way  our deep appreciation of your labors  in this place as our minister.  In a place where ministerial  work is  Eeculiarly difficult  you  have  striven  lithfully day by dav to lead us nearer  God.  We are deeply grateful to Alrs.Glass-  ford and yourself not only for the  work done among ourselves but also  our children. We realize how much  it has meant for these little ones to  have had you us their minister and  friend, and we would assure you, that  the 'memory of your kind interest in  them will not easily be effaced.  We would ask Mrs. Glassford to  accept the accompanying purse as a  small token of our appreciation of her  work here as your wite, trusting that  it may serve to remind her  in an  im-  f>erfect-\viiy Unit hei* labors have not  leeri unnoticed or unfelt.  In saying goodbye, we should like  you to know that we shall very often  think of you in the new field in which  it is pleasing God to place you. Iu the  words of His servant of olel, our earnest prayer for you both is that the  " Lord will bless you and keep you,"���������  that "He will make His face lo shine  upon vou, and he gracious unto vou,"  that "He will lift up the light of His  countenance upon you and give you  peace."  Sighed on behalf of the congregation  and friends.  f    J. C. Pitts.  -    I    T. J. Burrow.  Alanagei-s    -|    A. Pei ci val Proctor.  J. McLeod.  l_   Win. Newman.  Wrestling Match at Laurie.  A back holt wrestling match was  held in the large sitting room of the  Laurie hotel ou Friday evening last  between Geo.

The following is the result of the match by  rounds, best three out of five : First  round, Brenner; see-ond, third and  fourth. .Wilson. The referees were  Chas. Balch and Thos.

THE ORPHAN BOY  . C. Whitney Heard from in His Own  Defence.  Last Thursday's issue of the ltoss-  land Miner published thu following  letter from the ex-secretary of the  Orphan Boy Mining Co.:  Si_ATtt.k, Wash., April 12.  Editor. AIini.ii���������Sir : 1 see in voiu-  paper of the 8th inst., an editorial regarding the -Orphan Boy_ swindle.  This is the first notice coming to my  eye anel I wish you to slate that there  never was an interview between myself iind the Alail representative to niy  knowledge, and I would like to see the  interview or paper containing it, and  further that I have written the socrc-  tiirv of the Orphan Boy company several times anil have received merely  an acknowledgement of my letters.  I was on niy way to Revelstoke when  arrested in Vancouver, wholly unconscious of any wrong doing on my part.  As 10 any discrepancies 111 regard to  my books as secretary, or over issue of  stock, there is none to my knowledge.  If I have made* any mistakes in entries  I think they can be very easily righted  but cannot see where they come in. I  was in'Vancouver when I was arrested  for the purpose, of getting some money  due me, for expenses to Revelstoke,  my household goods having previously been forwarded there and they are  still there and I myself will try nnd be  there as soon as' I can get money to  get me there with niy family. I will  see that every share of stock issued  by me and sold will be protected in  full. 1 understand that the directors  are about to reorganize the company,  but 1 have no official.notice of same as  yet. -As far as the Orphan Boy mine  is concerned, yon can say it "is" one "of  the most promising mines in Kootenay, without any falsehood. Hoping  you will gives these few lines space in  your valuable, paper, I am respectfully  yours, - *-  ,F. C. Whitney,  Box 901), Seattle, Wash.  F. C. Whitney wired a protest  against today's sale.  Exploration of the Duncan.  A Kaslo despatch to the Rossland  Minc-r speaking of a systematic exploration of the Duncan ltivet,"which will  be undertaken by the. Gold, Hills Ex,-  ploration & Development .Co,, of./Tbr?"  onto, this summer says: .Jtiihes" Anderson, of North York", Ontarie", is'tlic  general agent for' this province and  lias'* conducted the1 preparatory arrangements. He will letivet Kaslo on  Thursday int-vning with 10 men in a'  large flat bottomed boat built in Kaslo  under his own .superintendence, with  provisions feu- five months, and all the  necessary mining tools and supplies for  opening up the properties which may  be located. It is their intention to  proceed to the head of Kootenay lake,  thence up the river to Hauser lake,  through that and up the Duncan river  as far as they can take their boat.  There a headejuarters ramp will be  constructed,* and a canoe built for further river work.  From this camp as a centre prospectors will be sent out to explore thoroughly the sill-rounding ccmntry in  evetj'-direction.-gratlually-extendiiig-  their Held eif operations as the snow  disappears until the* glaciers east iind  west of thn upper Duncan liver are  reached. As claims are discovered  and located; parties,will be sent back  to record them and work will be done  at once upon those which, upon'examination, prove sufficiently promising  in surface showings to warrant their  being opening up and thoroughly tested. Experienced prospectors have  been engaged for tho work and they  will in some cases be accompanied by  bright, active young fellows new tei  the 'work, but well able to withstand  the attending labor. Each member of  the expedition will be paid iu cash and  given an interest in discoveries made  so.as to ensure thorough and cxhaus  tive work.  Mr. Anderson will remain in the  vicinity and visit each location when  made and judge its value. He will  also go from camp to camp during the  summer and give directions respecting  the countiy to be. worked over. Air.  McArthur, the local director of the  company, lias been present during the  closing hours of preparation ami has  taken special care that everything has been provided wliich'may  contribute to the .success of the novel  enterprise. The result will be waited  with interest- by all who have known  anything of the interesting section of  the country in which the work will be  conducteel anel any success with which  the company may meet will be warmly welcomed.        ^^^^  Easter Sports.

CATTLE LOSSES IN THE STATES  Reports from the northern ranges  state that losses of cattle have been  the heaviest since the disastrous  winter about ten years ago, which  nearly cleaned up the cattle on the  then over stocked ranges. No doubt  there has been some loss of cattle on  the northern ranges this winter, for it  has been very severe, but the damage  can not reach the proportions claimed  in newspaper despatches, anel is of  course not to be compared with that  of the hard winter of ten years ago.  In fact such losses are almost impossible now. under thenewconditions  on the range. Instead of being  wholly dependent on grass as in early  days ot tbe industry the cattle are  now usually provided with.- hay  sufficient to- carry them over a period  of severe weather which shuts them  off the grass. They are keft in  smaller herds, too, and are generally  better fitted to withstand lhe hardships of winter.���������United States  National Stockman.  Ottawa desnatch to the Free Press:  The Alounted Police force is to be cut  down to 500 men, and the number of  officers is also to be greatly reduced.  It is anticipated that the headquarters  of the force will be transferred from  Regina to Calgary, although this is  not finally settled. Colonel Ilerchtner  ���������trongly recommends the change on  the ground that Calgary is a more central point from which to direct the  operations of the force.  ASBESTOS  VALUABLE DISCOVERY 25 MILES  FROM CALGARV  DESCRIPTION  OF  THE FIND  A Four and a Half Inch Vein of This  Rare Mineral Discovered on Fish  Creek���������Another Addition to Our  Minerals.  The IIi-itAijU was shown specunons  yesterday of the asbestos recently  discovered on Fish Creek, 2~ miles  from Calgary. ft has the appearance  of very lino silk wl*cn pulled apart  and is of a delicate blue tint. It stands  the fire test perfectly and 111 the  opinion of citizens who have lived  near asbestos mines in the cast is of a  particularly line quality. The vein is  four 111 al a half inches wide and was  discovered by W. Bannister and John  Rutherford. Several pounds of tho  mineral were taken out and samples  have been sent to Ottawa with a  view to having tho mine worked as  soon as the necessary steps can be  taken.  Asbestos of this quality is worth  from $75 to $100 and upwards per ton.  No other deposit has been discovered  in the West except a small vein in the  hills back of Kamloops. Asbestos  being soft is easily mined, the usual  method being to blast the wall rock  away and employ boys to pick out the  librous mineral.  The value of asbestos lies in its being  incombustible. It is used for making  lamp wicks, paper, firemen's  clothing, building materials,  twine and rope for packing steam  joints and pistons; it is also prepared  as a cement for protecting heated  surfaces, roofs, floors and for various  fire proofing purposes. It is mined in  Eastern Canada, Vermont, Virginia,  South Carolina, and m Staten Island,  New Yoik. Some varieties are  compact, and take on a fine polish;  others are loose, likeilax or silky wool.  The samples from Fish Creek answer  the description given in the technical  works of "amiantus", a flexible asbestos of very fine quality, sometimes  called earth-flax, or mountain-flux.  This particular variety is composed of  delicate filaments verv flexible and  somewhat elastic, resembling threads  of silk.  "Blue asbestos'" or "crocidolite" is  described as a min'ral consisting principally of silicate of iron and sodium,  occurring in asbestos like fibres  of a~ delicate blue colour, in  Griqualand, South Africa, and in  the Vosges mountains of France and  Germanv. The name is also given to  a silicious mineral (I iger-eye) of beautiful yellow colour and librous structure  much used for ornament, which has  resulted trom the natural alteration of  the original blue crocidolite ot South  Africa.  There is no doubt that another valuable mineral lias been added to the  discoveries already made in the Calgarv district.  ���������Calgary Herald.

A Semi.Scientific Kxiiorlment Tried In the  "Wooiy" West-It I'l-OTea SueeoBsful  und Ilonco Worthy of Mention anti  Notice tlio World Over.  A human telephone Is the most un-to-  date manner in which electricity and  the human frame have been ninile to  work In conjunction, Although many  marvellous experiments have -licnn  made with the electric current lately,  thai of talking' diri-ctly through a human being has iiovc-i- mull now boon  thought possible. Now that It has been  accomplished, it opens a wide Held for  experimental  work.  One of the tolcphone lines running  Into Minneapolis from the southern  part of Minnesota hail a breakdown  between the towns of ltochester and  Kockdoll the other day. As the linemen were slow In arriving, two young  men, Anderson and Llmlale by name,  thought they woultl see i������ one of them  could not be talltctl through by the  other. Llnclale took the ends ot the  wire In each hand, while Anderson,  having compared watches with his  companion, went to the nearest station,  which  was  four  miles  away.  Taking down llie receiver, he rang  up the town where Lindalo was stationed. The latter received a number  of severe shocks, but plucklly held on  to the wires, and Ihe message was  clearly  transmitted through  his  body.  Several other attempts were made,  and then message., wore sent over the  long-distance lino, and in each case  the words were clearly conveyed. Lin-  dale gives a graphic description of his  sensations while' acting as an impromptu transmitter:  "I know more nbout electricity now  than 1 over thought I would," said he,  "but it was worth the pain I felt to  be able to say that I have had an experience such as no other man ever  had before. "While Anderson was on his  way to the station I was tempted a  hundred times to drop the wires and  give up, for I had no idea how hard  the current was going to hit me when  It came. I thought, too, that with the  first shock I might not bs able to let  go if I wanted to, but I set my teeth  and held on rather than spoil tlio experiment.  "I was first thinking about how a  lineman looked ivho had been killed  through being careless in handling a  telegraph wire, when I felt a sharp  sensation that ran up my arms and  down my spine cleat- to the tips of my  toes'.. I next experienced a buzzing  sound in my ears, as though a million  bee1., had started up business In my  head. Sparks seemc-d lo be sliootlns.  out of my eyes, and I could feel my  hair rising and falling under my hat  as the'current of electricity varied in  intensity. The tips of my lingers seem-  _d to be on fire, and I was sure they  emitted a blue (lame, which spread out  it different directions.  "Strangely enouf.li, when I began to  Sot a little used to the sensation, I  found myself listening for* Anderson's  voice, for- I knew from the way the  r-lectric fluid was b-lngr pumped through  me that the experiment was a success."  Anderson's report of the sensation he  felt in talking through his friend Is also  interesting. "To be frank," says he,  "I had no idea that the scheme woultl  work". -When I first began to talk I pictured Llndale down the line, holding  fast to those two wires, and probably  Jumping up and down like a monkey  on a stick. Of course, he would let  go at the first shock, I thought. But  no, here came Hie "answering voice  from the other station. My live transmitter was  working splendidly."

CARTWRIGHT TALKS  ABOUT  THE WAR CLOUD  A. Chance for Canadians to Prove Their  Loyalty���������Temporary Loans���������House  Adjourns for Easter���������Premier Interviewed 011 Western Affairs.  Ottawa, April 15.���������Sir Richard  Cartwright, addressing tho Dominion  Rifle Association yesterday, told tho  member,, that Canadians might soon  have a chance of proving their loyalty  to Great Britain. There was no danger, he said, of a light on our own soil,  but tho war cloud in Europe looked  serious.  Tho House adjourned yesterday and  will havo a vacation until Tuesday of  next week.  Replying to Hon. Air. Foster, Sir  Richard Cartwright said there were at  present temporary loans 'floating to  the amount of ,1.100,000, contracted by  the late Government, and -COOO.OOO  contracted by the present admin-'  istration.  Alembcis from the West, consisting  of Alessrs.

Hon. Air. Sifton was present  during most of the interview. A  strong case was made out by the deputation. It was intimated to the deputation that the Government was perfectly free up to the present time to  adopt any course desired with regard  to the railway. Negotiations had  been proceeding with the O. P. _.���������_. for  some time, but nothing definite was  agreed on and nothing definite would  be agreed to without absolutely protecting the interests of the West. It  was intimated that the only conditions  on which an agreement, would be  made with the C, P. It. would be  the control of running powers  over the, Crow's Nest railway and  the conttol ot" rates by the Government. Then another important  concession would .be, ' insisted  on such as the surrender of clause 111  the charter saying that rates can only-  he reduced when the road is earning  H) percent on stock. The belief prevails that such concessions can be obtained by the Government giving a  bonus of $10,000 a mile for 325 miles,  from Lethbridge to Rossland. It was  pointed out to the delegation that if  the Government built the road itself,  there would be no lever left to exact  better terms from the company.  l-ETnnltlDGK   GRIEVANCES.

Sketch of Its Development anti Voluminous Tlio.t_.li Int-i't'stlni; Statistic-of  tint "Work Ilono���������Growth of tho Service -l'uctn ns to ltcclBtun-il Letters  nml Mont's- Order*. ,  In the year 1S51 an -\ct of the Imperial Parliament transferred the nianagc-  mont of the postal systems In the  colonies of British North America to  the various provincial authorities, anil  from that elate until Confederation  each province controllctl Its own system under its own laws anel regulations. Shortly after Confederation,  however, the Postotflce jVct enmo into  effect, establishing uniform rates anti  regulations for the Dominion.  These regulations, which since that  dale have changed from time to time,  are now as follows: General letter  rate, 3 cents per ounce or under; letters for local delivery, where there Is a  free delivery, 2 cents per ounce or under; letters for local delivery, where  not delivered freo. 1 cent per ounce or  under; registration fee, 5 cents: letter  cards, 3 cents; postcards, 1 cent; newspapers, books, etc., generally 1 cent  per 4 ounces; parcels, G cents per -I  ounces; fifth-class matter (parcels open  to Inspection), 1 cent per ounce.  In the year 1S75 an agreement was  made with the United States, whereby  a common rate of postage between '.he  two counrlies was adopted, each country retaining all money collected, and  no accounts being kept between the  two Postofllce -Departments with regard to International correspondence.  l_ater, In 1SSS, another agreement wa3  made, specially providing for the establishment of an exchange of general  articles of merchandise, open to Inspection, between the two' countries,  subject to certcln regulations for the  protection of customs with respect to  articles liable to duty. All the principal provisions, however, of the agreement of 1S75- were retained. The Internal postage rates of each country  generally govern, ��������� and official correspondence entitled to pass free in one  country Is delivered  free in  the" other.  The Universal Postal Union "was  formed at a conference held at Berne  In 1874,and a treaty-was signed in that'  year, the .countries represented being  the several countries of Europe-,- the  United States-and Egypt.. The'object  of the union was to form all the" countries of the woild Into a single postal  territory, and to establish uniform i ������.-  duced rates of postage, and to further  the interchange or correspondence by  arranging that every country should bo  bound to convey the mails of other  countries by Its land or sea services at  the lowest possible rates. The next Postal Congress-was held in Paris in 1S73,  when the Dominion of Canada was :.d-  mitted a member from the following 1st  July. Letters, newspapers -and other  printed matter, samples:and patterns  became sub_ect..to_uniform postal rates  and. regulations "for all places in Europe  and for'all other-countries that were  members of, the..union. - The existing  postal arrangements with-the Uniled  dtates were allowed to 'remain undisturbed, being of -a more- liberal anel  advantageous character than the .ordinary regulations of the treaty. jVt this  meeting the regulations of the treaty of  1874 were revised and embodied in a  convention which came'into force 1st  April,  1S79. ....  The third congress was held in "Lisbon in 18S5, but _no material-change  tvas made. The fourth congress was. held  In Vienna, 1891, when the admission :*f  the.,Australasian colonies was agre_d  upon", and- a number of measures, all  tending to facilitate the transmission  of correspondence, were agreed upon.  .-" The Universal P-pstal Union now includes, almost every civilized' country  In the world, being composed o������ the  ^tpllpwingj_ Tho - whole of JEuroiie. _the_  whole of America; in Asia���������Russia in  Asia;- Turkey-ln-Asia, Persia, British  , India,' Burma-i, Ceylon and the postal  establishments * at Aden,- Muscat and  Guadar, Japan, Slam, the European  colonies and. the European and Japanese postal establishments In China and  Corea; in Africa���������Egypt, Algeria, Tripoli, Tunis, Liberia, Congo Free State,  -the Azores, Madeira, the European colonies, the Orange Free' State, the  Transvaal, and all .the territories under  the protectorate of Germany and tha  French postal establishment .in Madagascar; in Australasia and Oceanica���������  the British colonies, Tasmania, New  Zealand, Fiji, British and German New  Guinea, Hawaii, the Marshall Islands  and the French, Dutch and - Spanish  colonies.  A central office has been established  at  Berne  at  the  cost of  the various  countries comprising the union. _U  the time that the treaty, of Berne came  Into effect (1875) the Jurisdiction of the  union extended over an area of 14.29..,-  700 square miles, with more than 350  millions of inhabitant., whereas it now  extends over an area of 39.372,000 square  miles and 1,035.000,000 inhabitants..The.  population'of the whole world is less  than a billion and a half.  The number of pieces of postal matter distributed over the whole area of  the union during 1893 was computed as  follows: 8201 millions of letters, 1S9S  millions of postal; cards, 5899 millions  of papers, printed matter and official  documents, 143 millions of samples, 44  millions of registered letters with a declared value of $8,028,400,000, 307 millions  of money orders'and postal credits with1  a value of $3,061,752,000, making the  enormous total of 17,778 millions of  pieces of mall matter. The prevailing  rates among Postal Union countries are  5 cents per 1-2 ounce and under for letters, 2 cents for postal cards and 1 c_nt  perj-2 ounces for newspapers, books,  etc'" The registration fee is 5 cents.  On account ot the enormous stretches  Of country over which the mail has to  be dellve'rcd at the ordinary rates the  Government of Canada found itself behind in. the Postofffice Department to  the extent of JS00.000, the total net" revenue being $2,792,790, and the total expenditure $3,593,647. The same trouble  has confronted the postoll.ee authorities of. the United Stales, as In only ten  of the States are the posal revenues  [n excess of the expenditure.  The 'following sums were expended  for. carrying the malls: By rail. $i _  ������41,115; by land, $844,118; by steamers,  (79,356. The department has postal coa-  |~_������t"_ Kith  H railways,   whose com  bined length Is 14,4fi_ miles. It uses  137 poslal cars of which 53 are on tho  Grand Trunk, 50 on the C.inadian Pacific and IS on tho Intercolonial. Tho  dally distance travel!,* I Is 30,43(1 miles.  The total distance travelled in 1S93 tvas  14,836,735 miles.  The correspondence between Canada  ind China and Japan consisted last year  of 179,093 letters, 77,483 newspapers, G32  pounds of parcels, nnd miscellaneous  articles to tho number of 61,019. With  the Australian colonics the mall communication resulted in the transmission of 148,729 letters, 313,..2a newspapers,   20(1,916  books  and samples.  _Vt Confederation there wore only  3638 postolllcea In Canada. There are  now 8S32. Tho llrst year ot Confederation 704.700 registered letters were  _ent; last year 3,183,200 registered letters wore sent. The total letters posted  In 1S6S were 18,100,000: In 1S9B they  numbered 107,505,000. Postcards were  used In the year 1876 lo the number of  1.6-1C.000. Last year no lefts than 2!,-  025,000 of them were senl by mail. According to the population there were  5.37 letters lo every head of population;  In 1SS9 there were 10.86 letters per head;  In 1890 there were 19.63 letters per head,  nnd In 1S95 21.16 letters per head.  s Newspapers, periodicals, books, circulars, parcels, etc., to the number of 5.0  per h������ad of population went through  the mails in 1S68. Last year 18.92 per  head of population were handled, or a  total number of 96,176,206.  Of the total 107,565,000 letters sent in  1S93, Ontario peoplo wrote' 57,900,000, or  more than one-half. This is at the rate  of 26 letters per head ot population.  Quebec sent letters at the rate of 15  per head; Nova Scotia, 17; Now Brunswick, 17; ��������� Prince .Edward Island, 11;  British Columbia, 27, and Manitoba and  Northwest Territories 25. Out ot a total of 3,183,200 registered letters Ontario sent 1,750,000.  During the whole period since Confederation the postal revenue has been always considerably under the expenditure. Each of the past twenty years  has shown a deficit of from $400,000 to  $800,000.  . The sum of $16,154 was paid during  last year in money on letters delivered.  Bents of letter boxes and drawers produced $27,698. Commissions on money  orders amounted to $107,085, and proiit  on exchange on money order business  with other countries to $1815. Among  the items of expenditure it appears that  postmasters received $903,369; Btamp  vendors made $17,325, and that there  were ' losses by fire and' burglaries to  the .extent of $3278.  In 1S68" the conveyance of malls over  10,622,216 miles cost per mile' .5 1-10  cents, and the transmission of- 36,981,-  SOO letters, newspapers, etc., cost 1 4-10  cents apiece. In 1895 the conveyance of  mails over 30,351,115 miles cost 7-2-10  cents per mile, and the transmission of  227,705,208 letters," newspapers,"etc., 9-10  of a cent apiece, so that there is a decrease in the cost of carrying each article of about one-half cent. And in  connection with this it must be considered that If newspapers were carried  now. at the old rate of 1 cent per pound  a sum of probably not les's than 100,-  000 would be added to the revenue each  year.  The system of free delivery of letters  by carriers in the principal cities was  commenced in 1875, - and last year the  total number delivered~thus'was: Letters and' postcards, ��������� 3S.08S.749;" newspapers, 13,734,474. The number of carriers employed was 3'JS.  . Last year 3,183,200 registered letters  were posted in Cemada. "Of this number-1G4 failed to reach their destination. No less than 28,158 of ' those registered letters were sent.to the dead  letter oflice. Of these 13,189 were returned to the writers, 1339 remained in,"  the office or with the postmasters for  delivery, while 12,330 failed of delivery  and-were found to contain no value.  Of the 164 which-failed to re"ach their  destination the - contents of 125 were -  made good by the officials or others held  responsible for the loss; five were stolen, and In 28 cases no evidence could  be obtained to account for-the dlser.p-  ancies. In every 19,410 registered letters only one miscarried, so that send-  Ing-by registered letter in Canada may,  be considered a very safe" method.  -Last.year 960,031 letters found their  way to the dead letter office. Of this  number' 134,343 were returned to other  countries; 24,973 were forwarded to  correct address; 288,779 were returned to  th'eir writers; 8547 remained In the office; 471,850. being of no value were  destroyed; 23,093 were returned to  printed address, and 8455 were returned  to Government Department.  The growth of the money order system is shown by the following figures:  In 1868 there were 515 offices, 90,163 orders issued; amount of orders $3,352,8.1.  Last year there were 1261 offices. 1,092,-  332 orders issued; amount of orders $1.1,-  187,322. Of the 1261 money order offices,  Ontario has 624 and Quebec 190. Of the  total money orders issued in Canada  (10,736,647 were payable in Canada and  $2,450,064 In other countries.  MONEY SAVED BY THRIFT.  Tlie    Canadian   Vostofllco   Savings Bank  System and Its Growth.  The post-office savings bank 6ysteiu  lias been in operation in Canada ever  since   the  year 1867.  At first the savings banks ,, were  limited in their operation to the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec. In 1385,  however^ the system was extended to  the Provinces of Nova Scotia and New  Brunswick, and now there are post-  office savings banks In ail the provinces, distributed as follows:.Ontario,  448; Quebec, 123; Nova Scotia, 45: New  Brunswick, 34; Manitoba, 25; British  Columbia, 23; Prince Edward Island,  8; and the Territories, 22, making a  total  of 731.  Under the provision ot the original  act no deposit must -be less than $1,  and by an order-of-cduncil of 1891 no  depolst must exceed $1000, in any^one  year, neither must the total deposit  exceed $3000.  Govern ..ion t^ savings banks under the  management 'of the Finance Department have been established in the  Maritime Provinces, and in Manitoba  and British Columbia. In these banks  deposits to the extent of $1000 are allowed. Under this system there are  35 offices, viz.,-22 in Nova Scotia; 2 In  Prince Edward Itland. 1 in Ontario, 1  In Manitoba, and 1 In British Columbia. Last year there were 54,9.12 depositors, with $17,644,936 on deposit.  "Arrangements have ",-een made for the  transfer ot the Government savings  bank In each province to -the Post-  office  Department  as  tbe  position ci  superintendent in each place treeomes  vacant.  In both these classes or savings  banks the rate ot interest paid waa  formerly four por cent., but in 1SS9 It  was reduced to 3 1-2 per cent.  On 1st April, 1SCS, the Pos'.-ofllce savings system was introduced with SI  offices. In three months there wen-  no less than 2102 depositors, who had  made 3247 deposits aggregating $204,-  589. In IS70 there ".were a million and  a half dollars on deposit; in 1875, $2,-  920,090; in 1SS5, 15,090,540, and in 1S95  $26,S03,542.  Add to this $17,041,950 on deposit l.n  other Government savings banks and  $13,128,483 In special savings banks,  and It will be soon that In 1S93 the  people of Canada had deposited In savings banks alone (apart from deposits  in chartered banks) the sum of $57,-  r78,9S],*e>r nearly $12 per head of population.  Last year there wore l_(l,G_8 depositors in the Post-office Saving Bank,  so -that the size of the average account was $222.22, the .highest In any  year since Confederation.  Taking imto nccount alt tho savings  batiks In the country outside of the  chartered banks, the progress of the  savings may be seem by taking the  aimount per head of population. In 1S71  it was $2 93; in 18S1. $5.44; in 1S91, $10.42;  in 1893, $11.02; and in 1S95 it was $11.32  per heed.  Frcm l-iesrc figures it will be seen  that In 20 years from 1875 to 1895 the  pavings of the people have increased  till they are now four times what  thoy were at the beginning of the  period per head of population.  The special ravings banks which are  in the Province of Quebec ��������� show development even during the past two  years of depressed trade, which must  have affected the earning capacity or  the people.  The record of the provinces in connection w.ith post-office savings banks  shows as follows  Last year there were 88,115 depositors in Ontario, 17.612 in Quebec, 6.682  in Nova Scolia, 4,442 in New Brunswick, 1,069 In Manitoba, 1,904 in BrltisJi  Columbia, 101 in Fntnce Edward Islatnd,  and 703 in  the territories.  "The amount on detpo_-t in Ontario  was $18,700,691, in Quebec $4,478,695, in  Nova Scotia $1,627,291 in New Brunswick $1,298,263, in Manitoba $163,058, In  Prince Edward Island $13,623 ,and in  the territories $10S,413.  The average aimount of eacth depositor. In Ontario was $212.23: in Quebec,'  $254.30; in Nova Scotia. 243.53, in Manitoba, $152.53; In ^British Columbia,  "218.09; in- Prince Edward Island,  $134.88, and in the territonles, $154.21.  -_ With regard todepcelts per head of  population, Ontario heads the J.lst, as  far as the post-office savings banks are  concerned. .The average is $8.50. Quelle shows $2.89 per head of population,  Nova Scctla, $3.58; -New Brunswick,  $1.04;'Manitoba. $0S0: British Columbia,  $3.16: Prince Edward' Island, $0.12, and  tbe teriritoi-es, $0.92.  .' The Maritime'Provinces make a big  showing, however, with regard to the  Government savings banks. Nova  Scotia has nearly $7,000,000 on deposit,  with an average of $15.29 per head oi  population. New Brunswick has-$0,������  441,137 on deposit, with an average ot  $20.05 per head of- population, and  Prince. Ed wa_d Island has over $2,000,-  000 on. deposit, with an-average per  head of $20-15.  Combining the returns of both Post-  office and Government savings' banks  there was on deposit last year In these  institutions $14,450,498, with an average  tn each depositor of $253.19, ana an  average amount per heiad of population  of   $8.74. ,      ..  New Brunswick" has the largest  amount* to" each depositor, both in the  post-office and the other Government  savings banks.  Tlie amount on de-posit in the Government savings banks, including postal and the other, per head or the  population by provinces. Is as follows:'  .Ontario, $S.75; Quebec, $2.89; Nova  Scotia, $18.87; New Brunswick, $24.09;  Manitoba, $4.30; Britlsth Columbia,  $9.02; Prince Edward Island, $20.27, and  _th e^Ten-i t orles, __$0.92.

The balance of deposits is not now  required (as It was formerly to be invested In Canadian Government securities, but forms a part of the unfunded debt of the Dom'nlo-i, and the  amount of this floating capital which  is at the disposal of the Government  necessarily fluctuates.  A comparison betwesn lhe savings  hanks returns in Canada and Australasia shows very much in ravor of the  latter country." But it must be remembered that there is no adequate means  of getting: at the total savings of the  Canadian people, as ho return Is re-  qu'red by the Government showing the  deposits -with special savings banks,  building and loan companies"saving  branches and the savings branches of  the chartered banks.

This means a  haul e>f SIX! miles further than necessary, and longer delay in receiving  goods. If tlie C. P.
