The Mountain I.lon has resumed drifting on the «UO-foot level. Work Is to be resumed on the Golden Lion and the Little Four Consolidated. The shaft on the Morning Glory is being sunk. There is no change In the formation. The slump In Republic shares Is due to financial troubles into which the company has fallen, says Robert Jaf fray of Toronto. The management of the Mountain Lion Is In a position to begin the ship meat of ore as soon as transportation facilities are provided. Work Is progressing steadily on the Wuuconda property and an assay made on ore yesterday showed a value of $24.37 per ton. The delivery of lumber for the new mill has begun.

At the 70-foot level of the Iron Horse, near Sloean, the ore shoot has widened out, considerably, and the grade of the mineral has Improved, native silver now showing In the ore. Recent advices show that the T,<? Rnl shipments have increased considerably In value over the low figures which were kept up during March. Instead of running practically at cost, the mine has been giving substantial profits. One of the few features In connec tion with British Columbia mines dur ing the past few weeks was the sharp recovery In Le Rols, which, after hav ing been as low as £4 at Christmas, were carried lip at the end of April to £9 Vi. An encouraging strike of 12 Inches of good ore has been made In the long drift of the Morning Star. Springer crock, at a depth of 120 feet.

A horde of hungry, disappointed gold seekers returned to Grand Forks from the scene of the gold excitement In Franklin camp. While no doubt there Is gold in the camp, It is still doubtful If It will ever pay more than small wages. The excitement seems to be unwarranted. Two properties are to be figured In the list during the week—the Enter prise and Arlington. From the Enter prise 20 tons were sent out, while the latter shipped four carloads, or 80 tons.

The decline is equivalent, therefore, to 37 hieli, for one week's operations, is unusually large. The increase in the loan item can Lk- attributed in part to I'nion pacifie voiivcrtifile bonds, operation* which called for heavy accommodations during the week, and the fact that one hank which hud a great ileal to do with the transaction reported an increase in loans of al*,lit $8.000,000 strengthens this theory.
