she arrived   a  few days afte
the operation, and so soon wus
Im in apparent gootl health that
her return was thought unnecessary.
But ull this time disease had
gradually entwined its tendrils
around the ever weakening
form of the patient. Even
more sudden than ho temporarily recovered, he was again
taken worse. Again medical
attendance was sought -aud a
trained nurse remained constantly in attendance; every-
thing that was possible for
human aid to accomplish was
performed, but all to no purpose, death had marked him
font victim and at a little after
seven o'clock ou Wednesday
evening he passed away in the
presence of his father and
mother, news nothaving reached
his brother, at Oakland, California, in time to admit of hit*
being present, even for the
burial, j
Theodore Gunderson was a
ulucd resident of Midway, and
his death at the early age of
twenty seven was deeply felt by
all who had the pleasure of
his acquaintance. His quiet
manner and exemplary habits
won for him the respect and
esteem of all. He was possessed of an irreproachable character that had a good influence
upon those whom he came in
contact with, so that in his demise the community loses one
of its most valued citizens, aud
the parents a dutiful sou
The deceased came to Midway
about four years ago and has
been a resident of this place
ever since, save for a time last
year when he was absent for a
few months employcdon the International boundary lino survey in the neighborhood of Sheep
Croek, und his services in this
connection were so valued that
he would have been similarly
engaged this year had not, Providence ordained otherwise.
Tho funeral was held from
the family residence on Friday
morning at 10 o'clock, and
was very largely attended.
Rev. A. 8. Thompson ably conducted impressive services both
at the house and the grave,
The casket was hidden beneath
the prof tission of floral offerings
contributed by the many
friends of the deceased. The
pall-bearers were: C. J. Lundy,
J.H. Bush.D. G. Mills, H. H.
Pannell, F. Kroupa and C.  M.
The bereaved relatives have
the heartfelt smypathy of the
entire community in their sad
freight on the bullion from tht
time it leaves the smelter until
it is ready for sale iu the market at New York. If the ore eai,
be handled and all costs inei
with a total expenditure of $3.50
for each ton, therefore, it will
represent only a 7 cents per
pound cost for copper,    .
The company now has four
furnaces and is installing two
more. The six will Iki capable
of treating 2000 to 2500 tons of
ore per day. With copper sel
ling at 24 1-2 cents per pound
there should be u net profit of
$1.80 per ton on the ore treated,
or at the rate of $1,296,000 to
$1,(520,000 initially, equivalent to
bettor than a dollar por share
on the company's outstanding
At present smelting operations aro curtailed by inability
to get an adequate supply of
coke. This trouble will lie remedied shortly. Coke costs $0.50
per ton at the smelter. Miners
are paid $8:50 per day and surface men $!1. It is the plan of
the management to continue
smelter operations as at present until thc matter of costs
has been fully demonstrated,
after which the question of
doubling the number of furnaces will receive attention. In
the meantime additional exploratory work is being done.
It is declared that the estimate of 20,000,000 tons of ore in
sight is vory conservative, It
is based on a measurement of
2500 feet in length and a depth
of 300 feet, While a shaft is already down 100 feet deeper, and
in ore all the way.
John Stanton   believes   the
Granby will make its copper at
a cost of 7 cents per pound.
Away on a Pleasure Trip,
Last Friday night, as the
result of an executive meeting,
Charles Wilson, K. C, president
of tho council, and R. F. Green,
minister of mines left for Ottawa, where they will lay before
the Dominion government
some matter affecting the
The new government is apparency to follow in the lead of
former ministries of the
province. It has dispatched its
delegation to the federal capital
preparatory to getting out an
election platform. The delegates will have among the
principal features of their
business the immigration
question. Fearing that the
Dominion may have in view
the disallowance of acts passed
at the last sitting of the legis
lature dealing with tlte subject,
of oriental innuigratiraii the
ministers will press upon tho
government the necessity for
strict laws dealing with this
question. The dolegat.es, it is
said, will urge upon the Dominion government that the Japanese governnient is apparently
not. carrying out the agtvomoufc
to restrain immigration of .Japanese to Canada, which was
used as un argument against allowing legislation aimed at Jup-
inese immigrants. The delegates claim to be around with
information on this point anil
will miiko vigorous protest
against any proposed disallowance.
The Westminster bridge will,
as usual, be a question for conference, and fho silver-lead
question will also be br.o)ig|i.y
up. The special mission of tho
minister of mines is undoubtedly iu connection jyith tlio industry and in this way it is hoped
that a mining policy may bo
evolved which will materially
assist that minister in the upper country.
Bill No. 1(J will also bo dealt
with, and an uil'ort will be made
to insure the bill being allowed
and the action of the iiouse in
connection with blocks 1598 and
15!W endors.xl by the Dominion
government so that these tracts
inay bo kept out of the hands
of the C.  P. R.
An Ottawa despatch states
that a Liberal representative
from British Columbia, when
asked about tho mission of Messrs. Wijson and Green to Ottawa, said they wore no doubt
taking a holiday trip St the expense of the proviuce. Incidentally they would try and find
aery to use at tlio election.
The represontatioi.'s from British Columbia in the Doniinion
parliament are fully informed
on till questions relating to
their province, and at the present moment have them well in
hand. The prentice bauds of
Messrs. Wilson and Green will
only injure the matter, but
probably the visit to Ottawa is
only a blind to cover up negotiations to be carried on in
another city for funds to run
the election. In any case tbey
are not travelling for their
The  Bounty   on  Lead.
Oitawa, July 6.—Finance
Minister Fielding to-day gave
notice of regulations authorizing the payment of $5000.000 a
year for 5 years by way of
bounties to the lead producers
of British Columbia, The terms
of the resolutions areas follows:
(1)—The governor in council
may authorize the payment of
a bounty of 75cents per hundred
pounds of lead contained in lead
bearing ores mined in Canada,
such bounty to bo paid to the
producer or vendor of such ones
upon evidence that such ores
havo been smelted in Canada,
provided that the sum to be paid
as such bounty shall not exceed
five hundred thousand dollars
in any fiscal year, Provided
also that when it appears to the
satisfaction of the minister
charged with tho administration
of this act that the standard
price of pig lead in London,
England, exceeds twelve pounds
ten shillings sterling per ton of
two thousand two hundred and
forty pounds, such bounty shall
lie reduced proportionately by
the amount of such excess.
. (2)—The payment of the said
bounty may be made from time
to time to the extent of sixty
per cent of the full bounty
authorized, subject to   adjust-

The true reason for the introduction of party liftea into pro
provincial affairs is that we nre
tired of coalition governments,
and need party lines for better
organization. Party lines, or
not, we must preserve oni;; au,>
tonomy. It must be the province first and the dominion second, where their interests clash.
The conservatives, as we have
said, desire to maintain existing institutions and customs.
What portion of Turnerism,
.SemlinCottonisin, DuuTiiiuir-
ism or Priorisiu does premier
McBride and his .goveroineni
desire to preserve and keep intact?
Wc cannot imagine anything
except themselves and 'the old
Tory gartg,that will certainty
sink or swim with the McBride government. "On the oth
er hand, the Liberal party favor change and reform in administration. Tliey''hiive- play
eda most important-part in the
governments o£ thq. older prov
inces, and'still continue to do no.
Let every elector ask himself,
which party is likely to give 14s
what we need so much, reform
in the administration of provincial affairs, 'j      irt.-
Jiuild and operate smelters
and refineries. No reasonable
change should be made in the
mining laws without full notice
to all parties .interested,* giving
full opportunity, >for discussion
and criticism.
8. As the province can only
advance by the 'settlement with
in its borders of thrifty and
prosperous-, citizens, and as
Orientals never become citizens
in any proper-sense of the word,
we declare.it to be the duty of
the government s to discourage
Oriental immigration inlil employment by every nleans with
iii its power, and we appeal to
onr fellow liberals throughout
the Dominion to aid us; in our
efforts to protect ourselves
against the ruinous competition
of men'having a standard of
decency and conifcji'timmsensoly
below that of civilized peoples,

obligation of citzenship which

Now that it has been decided
to conduct provincial affairs on
dominion party lines, it might
be profitable to consider what
principles tho two'leading parties advocate, and what have
been thei* Jleadlilg.) poliniesi Tn
the'past. nnd what they are at
the present .time, „ A .coiisefyAT^
tive in politics is defined as one
who desires to maintain existing institutions and custouis
one who is opposed to- change,
and has the disposition and tendency to preserve what is established.
lt is easy to understand that
conservatives desire to preserve
intact .much thkt was advocat-
edand carried into execution by
Sir  John   A.   MacDonald and
other leaders; who   controlled
the   dominion   for   about   25
years     since     confederation.
They will find many liberals to
agree with them iu this, and it
is said, that Sir Wilfred Laurier
has more than once expressed
his appreciation of the states-
manli:.e manner that Sir John
A. MacDonald mot and solved
the many difficulties that confronted him as leader of  the
government in the earlier yoars
of the   dominion.   But   these
difficulties are not bofore us for
solution   to-day.   They are at
rest, and many  of the leading
statesman who had the settlement of these questions have
passed away; and others, like
Sir Charles Tupper and  Hon.
Geo. E. Foster, have fallen by
the wayside, because they wore
unable to grasp the new situation, to keep up with the procession.   It should not be forgotten that the primary object
of our decision to run affairs on
dominion lines is not to preserve
the principles of liberalism or
conservatism or  the liberal or
conservative party.. The liberals in the dominion are safely
entrenched    11 power for  the
present, and the conservatives
under Mr. R. L Borden make a
very    respectable   opposition
The   liberal    platform,
