cei tain of finding Fawcett there ahead
of lliem.
He had nol returned, however, and
the next uiorning the seach waa resumed with the added assistance of Mr.
Riohards whu bad come up the night
before. A short distance up the creek
the body of tlie Inst mar. was found.
He bud apparently fallen to a sitting
position and then in raising to his feet
had Hipped and turned over end for>
end, striking his bead and seeliiingl;
breaking his neck.
His body was rigid when found.
with the exception of the neck which
was very flexible, thus giving rise to
the supposition of tbe neck being
broken. The dead man was brought
to town on Tuesday and waa interred
on    Wednesday,   no  ijiguesi.     being
deemed necessary.

The Dominion parliamentary tree
may be complete in all its branches,
but (or the next few years it must of
necessity be without Foley-aRe.
We are on the last lap of the 19th
century, and all the world should endeavor lo pay Ihe printer before the
sun sets on the last, day of the last
month of the last year of the dying
century.—New Denver Ledge.
The Ronsland Record issued its last
number Friday evening, its demise
being caused hy lack of patronage.
According tn ils last statement the
members nf labor unions used their
influewe against it because it criticised Noun' of ihe actions of unions and
labor leaders.
The Christmas number of the B. C.
Mining Record is to hand. It contains
ll2piig'-.-i of Interesting and instructive reading matter, mostly pertaining
to the mining industry, and is profusely illustrated with half tone engravings
of the principal cities, towns and
mines in tbe Province.
Perhaps the French may learn a lesson in international courtesy when
iheir iuisiness interests have heen ae*
vi rely crippled. According to a recent
dispatoh from Paris it is beginning to
lie known in France ihat the exports
tji Great Btitaln, which is France's
greal l customer in the whole world,
havi fallen ntC I'i per cent since the
anti-British campaign began.
MININQ NOTES.
It is reported that A. Lapointe and
the other owners of the Great Dane
group in the Si. Mary's country have
received an olfer of $50,000 fur the
properly 'nun the representatives of
an English syndicate, The claims are
tho Greal liJine, Fisher and While
Star, four miles over the Sawyer puss
ii. leSl. Mu y's river, KiistKooieoay,
aud are said io he among the most
promising propositions in lbe district
Sawyer Bros., formerly of Midwuy,
are heavily interested in the properli-s.
A big sliike hns been made ul the
260-foot lim'l oi) ihe Crown Silver,
Deadwood camp, lhe southeast crosscut having run into a solid body of
magnetic iron, currying good gold and
copper values. The ore was encountered Ho feet from the working shaft,
and the whole face of tho drift is in
ore. Tlie ore is similar in character
and cannot be distinguished from that
taken from the lower levels in Ihe
Mother l^nle. The Crown Silver is
one of lhe properties owned by the
Montreal Bonndary Creek Mining
Oompany,
The affairs of the Winnipeg Company are causing some speculation
among holders of Boundary mining
slock. It appears, however, that if
the company is re-organized and thoroughly tested along lines suggested by
Superintendent N. F, Tregear, that.
Ihe mine may turn out well. The
management has every faith in the
future of tb' pioperty if given a show,
and looks to ihe stockholders for -up-
port on the reorganization scheme
submitted at a recent meeting, lt is
believed that the Ave cents in assessments will yield enough lo make thc
Winnipeg a mine. The shareholders
are to meet on December 1st to con
firm the action taken at the extraordinary general meet ing held on November 10, at which certain resolutions
were passed placing Ihe company in
voluntary liquidation, appointing a
liipiid-itoi- and In reorganize the concern, In the interim Richard Plewmau, secretary ut the old company, is
in charge of lhe mi ue us olllciul liijoi
dutor.
Another of the hig Deadwood camp
properties is to hi developed and
placed on a shipping basis by a strong
company. The control of tho Western Copper Company, limited, owning
the Grey Hound mine, hnslteen secured
by Mr. W. M. Price, president if the
Standard Copper Company, and his
associates, who will iiiuneiliately begin the development of the mine on a
large si uie. There is a shaft, litfi feet
deep and the vein has been traced for
1,800 feet by crosscuts, The ledge is
40(1 feel Aide— a typical Deadwood
camp ledge—carrying (he same character "f ore us in the Mother Lode, bim-
sii, Crown Silver, Marguerite and adjoining properties. The plant consists
nf a hoist and boiler. The terms of
the sale have not been announced, excepting the bare fact lhat Mr. Price
aud his associates have secured control, A meeting of the company was
held Jind the following ofticiirs elected:
President, Andrew Laidlaw ; vice
president, P, H. Oliver ; secretary
treasurer, E, H. Maintain. Messrs. W.
M, Price and H, C. Price are on the
hoard of directors, As already stated,
work will be started Immediately,

The Liberal  Candidate Successful
Foley Gets Second Place.
The postponed election for member
of the Dominion Mouse of Commons
for the constituency of Yale-Canlioo
Kootenay took place on Thursday last,
and resulted in the return ot W. A.
Galliher, the Liberal candidate, by a
majority ot about 200 over '.he Lal-or
candidate, Foley, who waa almut 800
votes ahead of McKane, the Conservative candidate. Tlie result was by no
means a surprise to local politicians,
unless it lie the large vote polled hy
Foley, as it was generally felt that the
Government candidate had all the advantage. Local Liberals were particularly confident, and worked hard for
their man, with the result that out of
a total of 30 votes polled here 20 were
received by Galliher, McKane getting
0 and Foley 4. Outside of a few prominent party men very little interest
was manifested in Midway, as the exceedingly small vote polled plainly indicates. At the Provincial elections
last June the total vote was 88.
On the occasion of his visits here
during the campaign Mr, Galliher
made many friends, and proved himself a clever speaker and bu able politician. No doubt lbe interests of this
riding will be quite safe in his hands.
The exceedingly good showing made
by Mr, Foley was a mai ter of surprise
to many, and when it is considered
that the campaign was conducted without eil her funds or systematic organization, the result is all the more remarkable, and demonstrates that in
Kootenay and Boundary districts the
Labor party will in future be a strong
factor in politics. The party and ils
candidate have every reason to feel
satisfied with the showing made.
Mr. McKane, the Conservative nominee, was fighting under great disadvantage. The short time between his
selection ns candidate and the date of
election made a canvass of so large a
constituency impossible, and his party
should feel indebted tn him for taking
up the standard under *uch circumstances.
As it was impossible up to the time
of going to press to get the correct
tiguiv8 for all I he :. Ir is, no attempt
is made here to give More than the
general result.
MAXWELL WINS.
Reports from Vancouver indicate
that in the Burrard constituency Mr.
Maxwell, the Government candidate,
defeated Mr. Garden, Conservative, by
a large majority, but complete returns
hnve mil yet been received.

The Oovernnient Report Shows But
Two Sold in This Province.
The report nf lbe Inland Revenue
Department nn Ihe linking powders
sold in Canada (fives but two cream nf
tartar linking powders found on sale
in the entire Provinces of Mitnltolm,
British Coliiniliia and tbe Northwest
Territories, viz., Dr. Price's and Royal.
All linking powder? found oo sale,
collected and analyzed, except these
iwo, were made from alum, and are
condemned as untie.ilthfnl.
With regard tn these cream of tartar
Inking powders, Ihe report says their
wlioli'inineiii-ss may lie taken as well
established. The use of cream of tar
tar wit h bicarbonate of soda long antedates ihe commercial baking ponder.
These ingredients act in a perfectly
definite way, sn lhat the manufacturers
nf Ihese powders are able to guarantee
a mixture which contains no excess of
either, and which is absolutely pure
and healthful.
It is quite otherwise, the repot t snys,
with burnt alum, Owing to the difficult solubility of the alum, Ave per
cent or more of it goes unchanged into
I lie bread. The interaction of the
alum and the soda is completed in the
stomach of the consumer. A disturbance of gastric digestion is inevitable,
and cannnl but prove harmful.
Hence the Department considers the
cream of tartar baking powders the
only ones proper for use nr healthful,
while it emphatically condemns alum
and alum phosphate powders.
The analyst lakes up and refutes the
claim nf the alum pnwder maker* that
the alum in their pnwder jb resolved in
to a neutral substance when the bread
is baked. The residuum the alum
powders leave in tbe bread—composed,
the analyst shows, largely of alum, a
mineral poison—cannot be conceived,
bo says, under cntitiuous use, to be
without Injurious couseqtienci'8 upon
Ihe stomach.

Hon. Richanl McBride, Provincial
Minister of Mines, paid a visit, to the
Boundary district Inst week, arriving
at 0rami Forks nn Monday and Oreenwood -on Tueaday. At the former
place the bon. gentleman was entertained at a public banquet on Monday night and the next  ruing was
shown over the Hranby Consolidated
M. AS. Company's smelter. At Oreenwood on Tnosday afternoon he was
wailed upon by several ineinliers of
the legal profession who urged upon
him Ihe inadequacy of existing arrangements for the transaction of the
Supreme and County Court business
of the dislrict, These matters were
hi-ought tothe attention of Hon. J.
H. Turner when he visited Oreen
wood seveinl week* ago, but it was
thought advisable to lake advantage
of the pretence of another member nf
the Government to impress upon bim
personally lhe Importance of al once
making further provi-ion for lhe in
creasing legal business of tbe district.
Ill lhe evening a numerous and inllu
enl ial gathering look place at the
Oreenwood Club under the auspices
of the Board of Trade. The pwsl*
dent. Mr. 0. Scott Oalloway, men
Honed several much-needed public
winks, among Ihem roads lo outlying
mining camps, ihat. it. was felt the district has a fair claim upon tbe Govern*
ment to carry It out,  Other speak***-!
followed, dealing Wilh various iiiiitieiB
to which the attention bt (he Govern
ment was requested. In reply Mr. Mc
Bride expressed his sense of the growing importance of iln- districl aud the
reasniialilciiess of most of ils deiuanils
upon the Government. Personally he
was ipiiie io sympathy with them in
their requests, bin he was not authorized to commit ihe Oovernnient to the
various expenditures asked for. He
would, however, have pleasure when
he returned to Victoria, in submiuing
Iheir requests to the Oovernnient, ami
he sincerely trusted that tbe result
would In- favorable, anil ibal I hev
would thereafter recognize that the
pis-w-nt administration bad dealt liber
ally wilb the districl. An hour or so
was spent socially and a very couliai
though informal web w was extended to Mr. McBride by those presrni.
Next morning a vb.it was paid to lbe
Mmher Lode mine, where Mr. F. Kef
fer, general manager for the British
Columbia Copper company, shown!
the  Minis! f  Mine*  through  lhe
mine. The big ibowiogt of ore a I lhe

visitor very lunch, as did also the large
air toiiipressor and hoisting engine
now Wing added lo the power e<|iii|e
m»ii*. of the mine. Afler looking a'
the planl at Work on lhe Snn-et, Mr.
McHiidc proceeded lo the British Cnl

Mr. Paul Johnson, arcoiiipuni sl bun
over the works, explaining the uses of
the Various portions of ihe plant and
machine! y. The Standard Pyrltlc
company's smelter al Boundary Falls
was next visited, and here the managing director, Mr. Andrew Laidlaw,
showed Mr. McBride a similar courts-ay.
In the evening a complimentary
banquet, arranged for by the Board ol
Trade, was tendered to Mr. McBride at
the Hotel Armstrong, Greenwood.
After the good things provided had
received due attention a list of toasts
waa gone through, and the proceedings
were eftllvened hv several songs.
"Auld Lang Syne" and "God Save the
Queen ' closed a very pleasant evening.
On Thursday morning Mr. McBride
visited the Old Ironsides and Knob
Hill mines at Phoenix, and in the
afternoon went out on the train en
route lo Itobson and lbe coast.

An accident occurred nt the Knob

Procrastination is the thief of time.
Do not put off until to-morrow what
you can do to-day. Now that times
are improving throughout the Boundary Country in general, and in Midway
