During latter years, however, a rapidly increasing affinity, due to the settle ment of the newer Cand&dian rural dis tricts and to the stalwart armv of Cana dians, who have engaged in mercantile pursuits In American cities, ' as createii a live interest in the affairs of Canada. The American exploiting of the Cana dian gold fields, the Canadian branches, that have been established by the greater manufacturing concerns of the United States and the international commerce that hasgrownyear by year, regardless of the customs ainderances so studiously thrown in the way of it by either country, are other factors calculated to enhance this interest Great questions of international move ment are now involved in Canadian pol itics and Americans can hard'y he pas- , si- eat the results of the great party contest that will soon agitate Canada. Especially w:ll this be the case with the people living along the lx>rder and very peculiarly at Skakway. The pro perity of Skagwajr depends mainly upon that of northern British Columbia and , Yukon territory. The advancement of the interior depends greatly upon the liberal but careful management of the country. As so many residents of Skag way have valuable inter* >ts across the border, the results of the coming Cana dian election are of great local concern.

Secretary of War on Alas ka System The secretary o( war reports regard ing the signal serrice in Alaska that the system provided for by the act of May 2ti, 1900, has been completed. '?It consists of 1740 miles of tele graph, of which 14S*i are laud and 254 cable lines. It connects Kort St. Mich eal, on the south shore of Norton sound, with Fort Davis and Nome City, on the north shore, and, running east erly from St. Michael to the valley of the Yukon, passes up that valley to Kort Gibson and Rampart aud fr. m Fort Gibson passes up the valleys of the Tanana and Good Pasture rivers to Fort Kgbert ami Eagle City: thence running southerly acra<-^ the divide be tween tho Xanana and Copper rivers, it runs through the Copper river coun try to Valdez. A sejxrate cable of 120 miles connects Skagway with Haines and Juneau. "Under the appropriation of March 2. 11103, for the construction and main tenances of a submarine cable for con necting the headquarters of the de partment of the Columbia with the sys tem, the entire cable of about 1300 miles has been manufactured in the United States and delivered on the Pa cific coast. Two hundred and ninety two miles, connecting Junt au with Sit ka, have been laid and are in opera tion. The remainder, sutlicient to <tote r the distance between Seattle and Sitka, estimated at 9"0 miles, is at Se attle, to be lcid as soon as conditions of navigation permi:. "There will remain a break between the two systems of about 565 miles, which should be closed by a cable from Sitka to Valdez "The chief signal otlicer estimates the cost of constructing and installing such a cable at $321,585. I strongly urge an appropriation of this amount for that purpose." LOST ! LOST!

BIG MINING Drill Tests of Died^iug Compmy | A quarter of a million dollars is what the British American Dredging I Company estimate will be their cloan ! up every season. This result is ar rived at by the testing of 10,000 acres acquired by the company, who sanipltd hundreds of holes to bedrock, the re sult being a grand average of $1 per yard. I The dredge will handle 3001) yards per day, so that, in their calcula tion, a margin of 33J per cent, lias )>een allowed for gold lost; the season will allow the dredgo to run at least ; tive months and a clean up of $300,000 | is not to be wondered at after such | cartful prospecting.
