The Chinese celebrated the opening'  of Ihe new juss house on Front street  on Sunday wilh a vast expenditure of  fire crackers outside and prayer sticks  inside lhe builuing. The temple was  visiled by considerable numbers of  people on Sunday, being open tu the  inspection of the curious. All of the  fiirnituie had not arived, but what  there was on'view was wei! worth a  visit. Tables in front of the picture of  Gee King, the tutelary divinity of the  shrint*, were - spread with a lavish  display of Chinese confectionery and  preserved fruits, in lhe midst o which  the joss sticks smouldered with their  faintineense-like fragrance. A .large  hanging lamp, ' round; which paper  figures revolved cohlinually-'by"^'lie  fa miliar device of a current of air,  attracted a good deal of attention. On  the balcony oulside are stacks of  ceremonial banners, halberts. etc., of  curious design and considerable value.  Altogether theie was much worthy of  observation by the white visitors to  the joss house.  EXPI  Shewing how Four Years ago a  Mining Man Turned down a  Property Worth Today a  Quarter of a Million Dollars.  ���������'Time, development work and Lhe  extension of tran.*.porlal ion I'.icilil ies  cut quite a ligure in improving lhe  value of a mining property. The  Ophir group on P.ireupiiu* iieek in I he  Lardeau i*, an exemplification of (liis.  The present owners of lhe group paid  ,**;U)().(KJ(I fm* il, and it is doubt ful in hoy  could he induced lo nail wil h it. for  !ii:i-|<),()(li). Tliey have l<!0 Inns ol ore  on Ihe (luiii}> which will average i|l7iil  to llieton. and yet lhis valuable property was once. I umud down by  Hector McRae, the popular and v.-ell  known mining man. This occurred iu  September, 1.4D7, and tho main reason  why he refused to have anything (o  do with it wa.s on .account, of ils: remoteness from transportation and the  difficulties experienced in reaching it.  lt will be remembered hy the old .subscribers of this paper that Mv. McRae  made a burlesque report on the properly after it had been examined on his;  behalf. The company which he proposed organizing wan called the Australian-Canadian Tellurium Mining.  Smelting and Development company,  with a capital of ,**>75. Alexander Dick  W. II. Corbould and Hector McRae  were the three stockholders, ahd  J Tarry Hughes wa.s selected as prospector in chief. Tho report tells how  this fearless explorer started out and  examined the property of tho Lade  brothers. A firm but friendly oiler of  $50 was made for the group and refused, as the owners wanted .*j;il!),o.'30  more than this sum. Mr. Hughes  refused to purchase the properly for  the reason that tho claims were  located 10,000 feel above the townsite  of Ferguson, whilo the'latter is situated, roughly -speaking, 7,200 feet  above thei'seit level. The claims are  bonded on the north, east,- south and  west by glaciers * and are suitable for  cold storage purposes and summer resorts. ������������������ The .vein matter atthe bottom  T5rai&*slmtrwilTnorgor^TCSOTTto"tli"e  ton, and the ore although' called a  telluride more nearly resembles a free  milling pyrrholile, plumbic gasoline  composition such as is found in Nelson.  Quartz creek, Rossland and* Water  Cress mining .districts', hearing no  rescmbl nice to Cripple Creek or Klondike rock. ���������..���������After failing to secure the  claims at his own ligure   Mr.    Hughes  made an asoent of the mountain to the  Mother lode of (ho glacier.     Here   he  located   afier   many   hardships     ni.d  hairbreadth escapes tlirco square, lii'e-  si/.ed claim.!, upon which he had   seen  cropping through the ice a large, well  delincd, l.i'tio fissure quartz vein   fiom"  l."i to 20 feet wide and God only knows  how deep.      An   average   sample was  taken and submitted to Mr.   McKillop  and   the   result   was   gold,   no trace;  copper,, no  trace:   silver,   no     trace;  charge:!, .*ji7.."j().      Timber   for    mining  purpose!,   would   nut   be   available as  the timber line is   a   mile   away   in a  vertical   direction.       Another   drawback    lo     profitable} mining    is   the  .ihorliiess of the siuniniir season which  only lasts from .Inly 1st lo   .Inly   -Mi.  Of '.lie funds intrusted to Mr.   Hughes  Ihere remained  for a .short lime ijil.li.").  The  sum   was   almost    immediately  spent in purchasing stimulants I'or the  resnscital ion of Mr. Hughes, who  was  in a deploi'ably.iiervousconditioii I'roni  the hardship.! of his trip.      From   the  foregoing report :l, is obvious iu  order  to maintain   Llio   good   name   of   the  company, that   an   immediate, assessment of .*&2.n() per share must be levied  for liquidating the bill for assaying.  Thus it war. that Mr. McRae turned down a, property that loday i.s  worth a. quarter of a million dollars.*'���������  ltoasland Miner.  ATE8T NEWS  BY SfBE  Removed to a Serener Clime  A Toronto despatch of Saturday  says : The .'.lock market wasexcitedly  bullish at the opening today, the big  features in trading being Canadian  Pacilic and Twin City., These stocks  during the fiist half hour stood at 1 lo  and 107,', respectively.

South of Vancouver, secretary  fjr British Columbia for 'the - Society  for the Prevention of Cruelty to  Animals came in on Sunday evening  from the south. His object is to form  a branch of tbe society in town. On  Monday'evening he spoke at the  meeting of the Epworth League of  the Methodist church on mission work  iu Fiji and the South Sea Island?.  Thero wus a good attendance.  ���������-As-the-littendance-at^the���������meeting-  called iu the fire hall last niglit for the  purpose of forming a local branch of  the society was small, Mr. South  decided lo leave a warrant with Rev.

Thanksgiving Supper.  On Thanksgiving evening Nov. t_St'",  the Ladies' Aid Society of the Prcsbj -  torian church will give a turkey  supper in the opera house, at which  an admission , of 50 cents will be  charged and children under 11 yems  25c.

Mrs.  Doyle and Miss Dunn. Homemade  sweets will be on sale also. The ladies  of the Presbyterian church are work  ing hard to make the turkey' supper a  grand success. Judging from t.he  spread of last year this' one will undoubtedly prove a good thing.  The Triune Shipment.

The  ore gave the very high total of 315 ov.  in silver and. 53 S% in lead to the ton  hut the low prices cut down thc gross  returns.  in������" 'i  ia-BRY GOODS,  CLOTHING, BOOTS AND SHGSS, - MEN'S  FURNISHINGS.

It   is   a  proposition on which in   the   abstract  we all appear to be agreed   hut which  nobody attempt* to tackle   in the concrete except,  Joe   Martin,'  whose experience in connection   with   it.   was  not exactly of a   kind   to   induce any  .���������other political leader to go up against  it very hard.     Mr.   Martin offered to  build the road as a   provincial   under  raking, if the   people   entrusted   him  with power.   But much as we all want  government ownership,   we   did   not  want   it   bad   enough   to   want   Mr.  Martin thrown  is as  a   special   prize  along.with the candles in the package.  ���������So we , decided   to worry     along   for  another   while   abusing   the  C.
