Now how does it hap-pen that tho  Btipply bill can ho raised from  541.C47.000 In 18D7 to 5*10,008,000 In  11)00-01, ana tnat simultaneously  ���������with, this Increase thero can he constant reductions claimed? Tho thing  is a Globe trick upon tho public.  At every -session ot parliament two  or throo hatches or estimates aro  brought down; tho ilrst batch Is  known as tho main estimates, and  the second, and third-as tho supplo-  montarlea. The trick consist- in  adding Ml the estimates for the previous year together, and of comparing thorn with tho first batch of  estimates for tho approaching year.  Thus for 1807, 41,047,000 was asked  for in the main estimates, while  53,200,000 were voted In the supplo-  mentnrles, making ?44,837,000 In all.  For 1898 tho first batch of oatlmates  was 544,607,000. If the two batches  bad been compared it would have  been apparent that thoro was an Increase of three millions odd. But  by comparing all tho estimates for  1897 with the ilrst Instalment only  for 1898 a reduction with "great  economy'*   Is  apparent.  WELSH   DELEGATES  TONS OF FLOUR  The Welsh delegation    which   was  last  year  invited   by  tlio  Dominion  Sveiiment  to   visit  British    North  America for the purpose of ^lnspect-  iaa and reporting upon    those pot-  SSJof  the country still    open   to  dement has  presented its report,  tut* the document is worth the   at-  ���������Ration   ot   all tho*  who    contem-  Dlata emigration for purposes of settlement  to British colonies, says    a  SEat issue of the London   Times.  The   delegates spent a   greater  part  of their tim-a in "Manitoba, the North  West provinces anil British Columbia.  They found no room    for large colonies    of settlers in tho move populous  districts,  but  in   all   of    those  districts  found plenty    of land  stir  ���������reyed in lots of 160, 320 and 640 acres  the freehold of which could ho   acquired at prices varying from    l-s.  to ������3 an acre, payable in yearly instalments  for ten years. They    also  saw in less settled districts extensive  tracts of Prairie land still waiting to  bo taken  up under government provision  of free grant,  but  record thc  conclusion that experience has shown  greater success to he attained "when  aew settlers locate- themselves among  -those who are acquainted   with    tho  country,   tho   climate   and   the  style  of agriculture.'  Tbe report deals at length with  the prospect- of successful* farming  on the basis of relatively small expenditure ot capital on tho prairies.  It does not pretend to be exhaust-  j*.e, hut generally confirms the favorable view which has within tho  last few years begun to find acceptance in this country. Ot the country  which they actually saw, the delegates "cannot speak too highly."  They record and discuss the drawbacks to be expected by the settlers,  which they summarize under the  heads of liability of crops to be damaged bv frost, prairie fires the loneliness "of pioneer life, absence of  home comforts during the early  years o* settlement, shortness ot the  summer or working months, and  scarcity of fuei and building material. With full allowance for these  drawbacks, the delegates, nevertheless, formed the opinion that, "given  sufficient capital���������which should bo  about ������100 to every quarter section  of 160 acres���������practical knowledge ot  farming and acquaintance wilh the  style of agriculture suitable to the  ���������c___t-y,-_-he_lt_,__strength1__.capacity_  and willingness to work, and a fair  and rea-onable amount of prudence,  these districts offer great and - generous inducements to settlers.

Tho amount expended for Cau.v-  dlan products hy tho Imperial war  ofllco for use In the* South African  campaign, including freight will  reach in tlio neighborhood of throe-  quarters ot a million dollars. This  information was obtained by Tho  Montreal correspondent of the .Toronto World from Protesaor Rober-  son, Canadian dairy inspector, who la  looking after tho shipments at St.  John. So far, ho says, the war office  has purchased 12,000 tons of hay,  besides GOO tons of flour, 12,000 tins  of jam and Bovcn cap load- al corned  beef, all being put up in Canada.  Ho says tho prico of hay has increased 52 a ton all over the coua. ry,  and, he added: "Hon. Mr. Fisher hn.*.  rec-ived cables from tho war office  expressing tho greatest satisfac* *������n  at tlio quality of Uie corned beef, ''no  flour and the hay.  "This Is the flr-t time the '.tiv  ofllco has purchased so exteusiuly  in Canada, and tho products of the  Dominion having glvon satlstact'ni.  I believe tho present war will make  both the British army and navy extensive customers of Canada."  "Tho hay haa been secured in  Kastern Ontario, Quebec, and New  Brunswick; the corned beef in Montreal and Toronto; tho flour from  the "Lake of the Woods Milling company, and tho Jams from tho Slm-  coo Canning company, Hamilton.

In British Columbia the delegates  were" impressed with tho immense  mineral resources of the country, and  noted, especially in the coal mining  district of Fernie. openings for labor  and settlements "in small batches."  Ia British Columbia, as on the prairies, tha delegates found practical  opinion opposed to any scheme of  separate settlement by newcomers ou  a large  scale.  The   delegates  supported   the   conclusions  of their report by a    number   ot   individual   instances   wnicn  fell under their personal  observation.  Throughout   the   report they wisely  discriminate   between   knowledge  acquire- at "first hand heresay information, and the moderation with which  they  have  stated   both  sides   of  the  question  gives    the    more    value  to  tneir   favorable   conclusions.  St. Louis started out with a  $1,000,000 fund for advertising and  got such good returns that from 189X  to 1896 It spent 53,000,000. During  that period the population of St.  Louis increased 300,000 and the Business Men's League is authority for  the statement that more than 5110,-  000,000 were brought to town by  this concerted action.

The    larger    tho  flash.     The ordinary  English  service  pattern Is five inches in diameter.  It  is  claimed   that  In    Algeria nu'ssages  have boon sent 170 miles,  but this is  hardly verified.     Our    Indian    forces  have   maintained   communication    for  long  distances,   but  nothing   to  compare    with  the   CaIlfoi.il.ui,     In  one  well known Instance,    In  the   Wazlrl  expedition,  communication    was    kept  up with a live Inch mirror, a distance  ot   70   miles.      It   Is  only   In   a   very  clear,    sunshiny country    that    these  distances  can  be  covered.      In  England it would probably be impossible  to send a message more than 20 miles,  save  under  unusual  conditions.     The  climate makes  the    heliograph    comparatively useless.     A regular system  of     training     has     for     somo     time  been established for thc British array  in the signalling school   at Aldcrshot.  This school, it may seem strange, had  for somo time to suffer from the Jealousy   ot ��������� other    arms.        Engineering  oftlcers,   in   particular,   regarded    tho  trained  signallers    ot    infantry  regiments aa unimportant encroachers on  their telegraphic communications. But  the heliograph    has lived  down    this,  and today it and  the telegraph work  in harmony.     In the signalling school  a soldier is    trained  tor   00 days, attending five lessons of one hour each  day,  one of the    lessons being    glvon  after dark.     Before considered proficient .men must be able to send or to  read a mesage sent at the rate of 12  words a minute.     This will show the  immense number of messages that has  passed with Ladysmith    and the victorious relieving army.     If our helio-  graphlsts   there   do    their    duty,   the  besieged   at   Ladysmith   ought   to   bo  kept almost as well informed of dally  doings as though they had their dally  newspaper  delivered   regularly before  breakfast each morning.     When it is  required to send a message to a place  In such a direction  that the operator  stands   with   the   sun   behind   him,   a  duplex mirror   has to be used, so' that  the  suns   rays    are    caught    on   one  glass and sent back on the other. This  involves   careful   adjustment,   and   is;  more complicated than  when  the sun  is  In  front.      A  variety of the heliograph is the    __eliost.it.      In this    the  signalling  is done by interruptions of  tho   flash.      The   flash   Is   maintained  constantly in the direction of the desired terminus, save when the shadow  falls   across   it.      These   shadows  are  made long or short, as they are meant  for  dots   and   dashes,    and    by   their  length the message Is  read.  No other  method of day signalling can go nearly   so   far  as   the  heliograph.      A  two  foot flag  signal  cannot be  seen   further than three miles with the  naked  eye,   or   double   thai  distance with   a  telescope.   o   HELIOGKAPHING  "Description  of  the  Speaking by Sunlight���������It Has Been in Use for  Many   Tears.  Most o������ the news which lias come  irom Ladysmith during the siege has  been transmitted from the beleaguered town to General Buller on the Tugela by means of either the heliograph or flashlight. Eight hundred  years ago North Africa had a system  of wireless telegraphy by which places  a hundred miles apart could exchange  messages in a few seconds. In Algiers buildings were erected on Prominent sites over the land, with adjustable mirrors on the roofs. The  sun's rays railing on these mirrors were flashed In tho sky, and  ���������were���������visible���������at���������great���������distances.-* it-  was easy to arrange a plan by which  the flashes of different length should  mean various letters, and so make it  possible to exchange conversation.  Then  the  World Went to Sleep  And it was not until the time of the  Crimean war that the possibility of  talking by sunflash began to arouse  attention. The Russians used mir-  rors   for  this   purpose    largely    when  BOER   PRISONERS  They Are Well Treated at CaPe Town  ���������British  Playing  Cricket  and  Football  at Pretoria.  riGURES THAT LIE  o  Tho man who assarted that fig-  urea cannot lie, wasn't acquainted  with a Canadian Grit minister of  ffnance. The Toronto Mail in the  following, tells how a figure trick is  worked, usually by the Laurier government  Tie federal estimates exhibit a  proposed estimate of $40,068,000. It  i3 stated by one agency supporting  the Ottawa government that last  year the supplies asked aggregated  151,116, 874, and that therefore the  expenditure was reduced by over  two millions of dollars," and "great  economy" is shown. There is a  trick in this statement of the case.  It is a trick that is repeated year  by year. When Mr. Fielding brought  down his estimates for 1897 the amount a3ked was $41,647,000. This.it  was said, was $2,300,000 less than  thc previous "eyar. _ For the next  year 944,607.000 was asked. This was  three millions more than the previous estimate, but it was proclaimed as another two million Tedn-"^n.  For 1SS9-00 the figure was $49,211,000.  they were besieged in Sebastopol, and"  this led the English army to examine  the matter. But it was not until 30  years later that the "mirror telegraph." aa some called it, was adopted by the Indian army. Thirty  years after the Crimean war even our  war office began to think that there  might be something,in this little appliance. In 18S5 experiments were  begun by the English army with the  heliograph,, and they were so satisfactory that four years later every  regiment and battalion In the service  was supplied with two. Since then  there has not been a. military campaign without abundant demonstration of its usefulness. It has been  the great means of holding communication with the army that has Just  been relieved in Ladysmith during tho  present campaign ,and every one remembers how at the most critical  moment of the fierce Roer attack on  the nritish position the sun was  clouded, and so it was impossible to  convey further news of the battle.  In the recent campaign against native  tribes In Northern Tndln. tho hello-  graph waa invaluable, and by it the  most outlying posts were kept In  constant touch with headquarlcrn.  Your enemy can cut the wire ot your  field telegraph linos: ho cannot intercept the flashes nf your mirrors.  Many years before this, in th . Tr.in.o-  vaal war of 1880, one* r,t the besiege'i  Brltish garrisons tried by every possible means to open up cnmm'.inlra-  tion with-other British torr-oa many  miles off. Runners wi-rr.

There  was no heliograph with our troops,  but the officer got a shaving mirror,  and used an ordinary clotii cap 'IK a.  shade. He* put the mirror at an angle  to reach where he, thought the British relief, column might be. find ntm-t-  ed"flashes in' the sky by quickly covering and exposing the-mirror with  hi:, cloth ca.p. At first came no response. The work wok was continued,  the signal work being flashed around  all likely places. Then there came  a flash back from the far distance.  With straining eyes and beating heartii  the besieged men read out tlie signals  sent from scores of miles away: "All  well. Relief quickly coming." "What  Is the heliograph? Briefly, the heliograph is a circular adjustable mirror  of mirrors, usually mounted on a tripod stand, and with a sighting arrangement attached. The mirror Is  adjusted until the shadow from the  sighting rod���������the rod which stands on  The London  Times correspondent, al  Cape Town writes uh follows:  A few days ago 1 took occasion 10  visit the Uuer prisoners of war at  Simons Town on board the Gunarn  transport Catalonia, to which they  have recently beeu transferred from  the..Manila, which brought them round  from. Cape Town. originally Uiey  had been on board Her Majesty's ship  Penelope at Simons Town for some  weeks before their removal to the  Docks Hospital in Cape Town harbor.  The Catalonia was anchored well out  in the bay, no doubt to prevent a  repetition of the attempts to escape  by swimming which were made from  the Manila rather more than a. week  ago. The arrival of a boat alongside at once attracted a crowd on the  deck of the Catalonia, all interested  in any little change in the monotonous routine of a prisoner's life.  Climbing on deck I at once lit upon  acquaintances, men I had met at  Bloemfontein, Pretoria, Johannesburg,  or invthe Boer laager at Sandsprutt.  There-was much laughing over our  meeting .again under such unexpected  "circumstances. ���������One "Ot^Trry��������� friends-  reminded me jocularly that I had not  kept my Promise of spending a few  days shooting springbuck on his farm  in the Free State, to which I could  only rejoin that I- knew that he had  gont out rooinek shooting himself and  was not to be found at home. They  then did the honors of the ship, taking  me round the deck and introducing  me  to  various  other*,  of their fellow  .prisoners. An   orderly  was     present  for form'- _afi;_! but took no pun in  our proceedings, except now and  again humorously to deprecate some  of the criticisms my friends passed  upon their quart/-.��������� *���������������������������- orisoners  were scattered all over the deck, some  reading or playing draughts, other"*  pretending to. fish or walking about.  Some looked profoundly bored, others  were holding most animated conversations, chiefly about the war. A  favorite amusement seemed to consist  in  Chaffing the Sentries  or the crew about the British reverses. One wizened little man, a.  Johannesburg bar loafer to Judge by  appearance was treating a sailor to a  most graphic account of how It took  six lancers to capture him at Elands-  laagte, a statement which provoked  much laughter from his fellow prisoners. The dinner bell then rang and  we went below. The whole dimly  lit space below deck was filled with  rows of wooden tables, with enclo--  iiures for the prisoners' kits, and with  hammocks slung to the low ceiling.  They were* not very cheery quarter*-,  it must be confessed, and the prisoners complained very freely about  them, contrasting them with the comfort they had enjoyed at the Docks  Hospital in Cape Town. Tt Is tru"  that the space occupied by s*nm_ -ISO  prisoners on the Catalonia Is the i-imf*  ;is that allotted to 1,200 of mir soldiers on their way out; and. as the  captain of the Catalonia said lo m"  afterwards*. "Tf the soldiers were _o  pleased with their accommodation ;'r.d  feeding that they Hpcclally _.->nt ;i -Imputation to thank me before they left  they ship, I don't sc*e why these Briers  should grumble iC they gr:t thr* samf-  treatment." Still, it must be remembered th-it most of Ih*.* prisoners,  especially those taken a.r. Elnnclsln-  agate. arc men belonging lo the m'd-  dle and upper classes, and acciiriloni-  ed to live In considerable d.mr.nl.  These naturally find their pres1 nt  quarters sciualiil. gloomy and unPleu-  sarit. riesirlps. I ho prisoner's life ir-'.  very monotonous and depressing and  calcul.iled to encourage grumbling.  Nor can the want of exercise and  confinement in such close f|tiarters In*  very conducive) to health. r have  good reason to believe, however, that  the Catalonia is being used merely as  a temporary prison, while better nuar-  ters arc lining arranged for on short*.  Apart from the complaints mrpiiny referred to th - lot of the prisoners is  not a very hard one. The only t-isk  Imposed on them in thai or ko.pln!!*  their own quarters clean. They ar?  allowed to receive visitors on certain  days of tlie week.     Their friends may  supply them with any luxuries they  like In the way ot deck chairs, clothes,  cakes, fruit or tobacco; In fact everything except money and spirits; and  as very tow ot them have not got  relatives In Cupo Colony, or else  friends among tho Uitlanders staying  down here, they havo no reason to  feel particularly lonely and forgotten,  Their food is not luxuriously, or very  varied, but Is sufficient and healthy.  Tha meal I saw consisted bt boiled  boot, . potatoes, pickles, bread and'  coftce. Prom such Information as  comes to hand through Boor sources  It would seem that .  Oiir Prisoners  now  confined in  the  neighborhood  of  Pretoria are well treated.     It is rumored that they get rather less meat  and rather more mealle pap than the  soldiers care for, but in tho   hot   climate of Pretoria and with not enough  exercise to  keep them In condition a  mainly   vegetarian    diet  can  do    no  great harm.     They have--an enolosure  suniclently large to allow them to Play  cricket and football  in.     From what  I saw myself of tho Boor    leaders at  the  outbreak ot  the    war and    from  their   behavior   since,   I   believe   that  they Intend carrying out this war in  u civilized and humane spirit,     Their  have   boen   a   few   undoubted   Instances   ot   unfair   trickery,   or  firing   on  stretcher parties, or of misuse of  the  white  flag.     Thoro Is a very considerable rulllanly   element    among    the  poorer back country Boers   and    tho  "mean -white*"  in the oltles,  and  the  discipline   ot  the  Boor  commandos  is  not always sufllclcnt to restrain these.  But,  as a rule ,tho better class Boer,  if   not    exactly    ohlvalrous,   is    kind  hearted,  and  ut    Magersfontein    and  elsewhere frequent Instances of kindness to our  wounded    soldiers    have  boon recorded.     In fact It Is doubtful  whether  In  any  war  fought  hitherto  so much consideration has been shown  on both sides to the wounded.   Almost  invariably  tho    wounded   have    been  given buck to their own side, although  it Is a fact that   with    the    wounds  caused by the    modern   rifle quite 25  per cent of the wounded aro able to  return to the front within two months.  Tho duty ot carrying on tho   war humanely and of treating prisoners  consideration  is  enjoined not only by  the   general   feeling   of  civilized   society;  but especially   by the   circumstances  of  this particular war.      We  are fighting not against a hostile and  rival  nation   which  wo  desire   to  injure   and   crush,   but  ngatnst  a  mistaken political . ambition    which    has  been a permanent menace to the peace  of South  Africa and has cheeked   its  development.     The men we are fighting  against today  are    tho    brothers  and   cousins   ot   many   of  our  fellow:  citizens,   and   aro   themselves   to   become our fellow    citizens when    this  war Is over.  Good Feeling.  While determined to   carry out this  war    successfully    at   all    costs,   we  ought always to bear the future settlement in mind, and as far as is compatible with  military*   necessities    dr������  nothlng that might even by exaggeration  bo  twisted  Into  ill  treatment' of  our enemies,  or those whom we suspect  to be  our enemies.     Every uct  of kindness ta wounded Boers on' the  field, every littl a comfort provided or  concession made to the Boer prisoners  in our  hands,  will  make the  task of  settlement easier hereafter and help to  lessen the bitterness of racial feeling  which will for some years to come survive  the long    historic    conflict    between the'English   and the Dutch  in  South  Africa.      So.  too. In tho disaffected  districts    of  the colony    Itself  our  commanders  had    better    resign  themselves to the difficult  position of  being In  a practically hostile country  in which they aro yet bound to treat  the inhabitants with all the consideration due to friends.     It Is very llttl-  use. and may be very much harm, to  deal harshly with  them because   they  are known to have sympathy with the  Republicans, to have proclaimed them  openly,  or even    to have    entertalnci  their    commandos when    passing    by.  Rebels who   have   actually taken up  arms   and  spies   against  whom   ther-  la good evidence should, of course, be  punished  severely. '   But-against   the  passively  disloyal  or  doubtfully loyal  the  only      thing to     be done      Is to  strengthen one's own force sufflclentlj*'  to be quite indifferent to their actl'ons.  Tt is  better to be obliged to send out.  a  few   extra battalions    in   order    to  carry through  the war In  this  fashion  thnn   to  do anything  unnecessary    to  embitter raco  feeling in this country.  WAR WITH WILD ANIMALS  Tho  stockmen    of    Wyoming  are  ���������waging   florco war upon the wolves,  mountain lions and coyotes,    and a  largo  numbor of  theso  animals   are  being killed.   At the last session of  tho legislature a bill was pnBsod appropriating the sum ot $25,000   to be  UBed aa bounty on predatory wild animals at the rate ot 9 for each wolf  pelt and $1 for each cqyoto pelt.   A  number ot professional hunters and  trappera   were engaged   to  work  in  different sections of tbe   state,  but  the wolves    were*    so  shy that the  business    became    unprofitable.      It  was then that the stock associations  wore formed,  each stockman agreeing to pay the sum   ot f 1 on each  coyote or wolf killed within   a certain district. These associations were  composed of about   20 members    to  start with, and when a hunter killed  a wolf he received, In addition to the  state bounty of $3, the Bum ot   120  from the ^association, being' allowed  to retain  tho hide, which he 'would  then sell for ?2 or $3.   Tho   first of  these associations    was    formed   in  Cheyenne and was made up of    20  ranchmen, who   live In tho country  north ot   Cheyenne   and   south    of  Horse creek.  &&������.&&&&&&&&&&  The  A   JfcJft'^* i_������i���������_______���������_���������_���������  Revelstoke Herald  (SEMI-WEEKLY)  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

REVELSTOKE CELEBRATES  The Capitulation of Bloemfontein.���������A  Perfect Day and a Splendid Parade'.'  ���������A Big: Bonfire and Patriotic Speeches  I-*oinptly on the receipt of the news  of the capitulation of Bloemfontein  preparations were made by Mayor  Smith and A. Johnson,of the Herald.  to celebrate tlie event in Revelstoke.  Tithe was short, but a half holiday, a  parade and a bonlire were arranged in  no time. Nexl ; morning the town  broke- out all over with Uuibii Jacks,  pe.haps the most tasteful display  being lhe arrangement on the front of  C. IJ. Hume & Co.'s store. Men,  women, children, ' houses. stores,  doga. and old 151 in the yard, all displayed in some shape, or loam lhe  meteor flag of lhe Empire. At two  p.m. the finest parade ever seen iu  Revelstoke left the opera house. In  fi out inarched Jus. Lauder bearing an  immense blue ensign. After him  came Ihe city band, the rifle company, under "Capt: Taylor, and the  i-hililren of the public school carrying1  flags. The children were the prettiest  and most attractive element of the  parade and their, perfect turnout reflected great credit on Principal  Sulliv.m and his stuff.': In the roadway  a line of rigs kept/pace parallel to the  parade. 11 was headed by a buggy  containing Mayor Smith nnd Ex-  Mayor McCarty.

The parade inarched first  down town and then up town and  back to the opera hou.-.- It was  intended to have some*open air speech  making and singing by thu children,  hut they were tired after their long  march and the parade was accordingly  -dismissed.��������� = - - - -  In the evening a bonfire whs lighted  on the old baseball ground and the  band gave a much appreciated selection of music. At "the close of the  concert:, R. Tapping gave a stirring  and glowing patriotic address in the  opera house, followed in a' few brief  words by Mr. Adair. The celebration  of the day aroused the greatest  enthusiasm" among Our loyal and  patriotic, citizens, and everyone was  delighted at the great Miccess of the  parade, which surpassed anything of  the kind previously attempted here.

Extensive Operations on the Royal Group  on Lexington Creek.  Mr. II. O. Mcl-lyniotit, AI. E., has  just returned from Lexington creek, a  li-iImtHi-y of Fish creek, where he has  heen in charge of the operations of t.he  Lardeau mines, limited. Operations  were commenced on these properties  ahont four months since. The Hrst  work done was the construction of a  trail from Lexington creek up the side  or Goat mountain to thi; Royal group.  As soon^as this was done the lead was  exploited ou the surface in several  places, and the No. 1 lead was found  to run through the Ihreu claims.  There, aro three parallel leads on the  property. No. 1 is a silver lead. No.  2- is an iron capped lead, located  twenty-live feet, from No. 1 and higher  up the mountain than No. 2. Alter  the surface had heen explored, a tunnel w.is started on tlie Lardeau Queen  for the pnrpos-e. of lapping the ledge  at a depth of fifty-five feet. It is a  crosscut tunnel, ami is now in sixty-  six feet, the lead heing met at sixty-  three. The ledge is three feet wide  ami is principally iron pyrites and  qi-irl-. - On the hanging wall tht*re is  galena coming iu and evidi-ntly displacing the iron. Three shots were  put. into lli'i llooi*, and these disclosed  the galena. The as.-ays made of the.  galena, ore shows niii*.yfour ounce.-'  iu silver and $10 in gold. On the  surface of the same ledge assays as  high -is ijllS were got. which included  ii>S in gold;Mr. iMcUlymont says the  leads are strong and well defined. The  veins are true fissure ones. In the  Chief Joseph,* which is located '-.000  feet snut h of I he'Lardeau Queen, at a  depth of sixty feel, ore that, went 1.100  ounces in silver has heen obtained.  This property is heing developed and  is likely to he sold to an English  syndicate. .Mr. McClyrnnnt says that  as soon as he can get in a new supply  of provisions and powder he will resume work on the. Royal group. A  ntimht-r of properties arc to In*  operated in that vicinity in the spring.  Eight pioperties have lieen pureha.-ed  outright or are under hond. and all of  these are. to he operated as soon as the  snow goes a wav.

The Beatrice, wliich is six miles from  the Royal group, has heen shipping  one its product to the smelter all  winter, and is a mine of importance,  although il is only partially developed.  All lhe ore so fin* scut to lhe sin. Iter  from the Beatrice averages about $120  to lhe ton.  The snow. Mr. ,McClymont says, has  lieen from thirle������*ii to fourteen feet  deep on tIff Royal group, which lies  about G,000 feet above set level.. On  the flat there is only about two feet of  snow. The depth of the snow makes  it diHicult to get supplies in. There  has lieen so mmh mild weather that  th������. snow is soft. The siiowslides have  already commenced to come down,  being* a month earlier than usual,  There is every indication that lhe  spring will be very early this year and  a likelihood of a very busy summer.
