requiring nn eiiorin oils pressure to get

for some time in the open nil-; I hut is,
until it gets hent enough from lhe surrounding air lo turn again into its
natural slate. It will turn mercury
into a solid form as soon as it is poured
into it and freeze up a thermometer
rapidly. Such is the assumed pnspec-
tiye usefulness of this liquid that predictions are made of distant water

A Bold Step.
The Spokane Chronicle commenting
editorially upon the finding of Ihe
jury in the Webster murder case,
gives to Iheworldii Iriieinsightjnlo lhe
way In which up lo the present, at any
rate justice has lieen administered Iii
the home of lhe brave and the land of
the free. It says:—"Kor the lirst lime
in lhe history of .Spokane county a
while man has been 1'ulivlcled of murder iu lhe Hrst degree. Il is a record
that Uie presenl puisecuting attorney
can point, to wilh pride. He has accomplished whal all of bis predecessors
have failed lodo, and has restored lo
tbe people tt confidence in tbe law of
ihe counlry. Whatever may he the
ultimate outcome of lhe Websler case
the people will feel a sence of relief in
the knowledge that, the Mint:lias passed
when murder can be committed in
this county with Impunity, It, is rarely
that a iiiiiii escapes punishment for a
petty offence against the laws, but
heretofore, wilh the exeepl ion of one
old negro and u Chinaman, murderers
have been exempt from the punishment laid down In Ihe siaiuie hooks.
The murder commuted by Webster
wes no more atrocious than many
others that have occurred during the
existence of Ihis county, but as a start
hnd to be made sometime ll is just as
well that lhe Hrst should be Webster,
for his wns certainly a diabolical crime,

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company having recently purchased the McDonnell
ranch of about 560 acres, adjoining its mineral claims, now possesses unusual facilities for carrying
on mining operations on a large scale. This purchase has secured to the Company excellent
mill and smelter sites; abundant water power for mining, electric light, domestic and other
purposes, and other desirable advantages.
Forty acres of this land, very conveniently and centrally situated at the junction of Eholt
Creek and Boundary Creek, have been surveyed into town lots, and the new townsite has
been named.
BOUNDARY GREEK CITY.
I
TS situation is a most favorable one, being at j nigh   on the line of the new railway from the
the meeting place of two much used routes o'
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively. It is also the only known
practicable railway pass from the east, so will be
Columbia River to Penticton.
Building has already commenced on the new
townsite, which offers particular inducement for
both business and residence purposes. There are
now good openings for several kinds of businesses
and the company will give exery encouragement
to business men establishing themselves at this
point. Prices of lots are within the reach of all,
and buyers building on them will be liberally dealt
with. Full particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
