From a despatch went, out
from Phoenix it would appear
that in all probability the V. V.
& E. railway company will commence work in the Boundary
country at no late date. It is
as follows:
Although it hus been thought
for the last few weeks, from the
utterances attributed to J, J.
Hill or his subordinates iu St.
Paul, that there was now no immediate prospect of the building
of the V. V. & K brunch of the
Great Northern from Grand
Porks to * Phoenix, the right of
way men have been steadly going on with the work of securing the balance of the right of
way for the line in and around
Phoenix,
Two weeks ago Charles A.
DesBrisay, the right of way
agent in chief, was here, and an
option was given on three
pieces of property in the heart
of the city for ubout $0,000, over
one of which ut leust there lias
beeu u difference previously us
to price, the said option to run
for 15 days. This week, telegraphic orders were received to
prepare the deeds to the railway company for these prices,
and last week Mr. DesBrisay
arrived from ,'jpokane to close
up the matter.
It seems to be the general impression that construction 011
the branch will be under way
some time this fall, and perhaps
sooner, although nothing detiii-
ite is given out,
• Another indication of wbrk
being done in the near future is
that the company, at Ottawa
recently, applied for and obtain
ed permission to cross certain
streets in the city of Phoenix.
At the Snowshoe mine the
work of installing the 150 horse
power boiler that recently arrived, has been completed.
This is the largest single boiler
yet put in use by any mine in
the Boundary, and will be user
us soon us it is inspected by tin
government inspector, probably
some time next, week. The
Snowshoe, besides its steam
power for the compressor, also
uses electricity for the hoist.

J
Granby Smelter will Close Down
for a few Days.
They must go
The remains of our Summer Stock will be cleared at prices which would
Tempt 1 Miser.
These are preseut seafcbn Roods-New, Stylish, pretty and fashionable.   But
we don't want to carry any over to next season, and in order to dispose of them
It is the expectation to have
to blow out. the four furnaces
at the Granby smelter in the
course of a week or two, for the
purpose of connecting np thc
two additional furnaces the installation of which is now nearly completed. To do this the
smelter may be closed down ten
daya, during which time no ore
can be shipped.
Superintendent Williams, of
the Granhy mines, states, however, that he will not find it
needful to reduce the force of
men now at work in the properties, as he has almost unlimited
room now in the immense
stopes for the storage of broken
ore, besides other work in the
way of development to be done.
When shipments are resumed
for the six furnaces, they will be
ut the rate of over 2,000 tons
each 24 hours.
J. Thorp, of Chesaw, in an interview at Republic a few days
ago, said:
"Chesaw has been  rather a
dull camp for some time, but
the sky is getting brighter fast.
As development progresses the
mines appear to show up better.
So fur us lean learn the values
increase with depth und all concede that the ledges get wider.
As these facts have gradually
dawned upon the mineowners
they have begun to work in a
manner   whicli   denotes   thut
they mean business.   The work
which is iu progress or about to
tie undertaken is upon a more
extensive scale than ever before
known in the  catnp.   Por the
last  two or three years there
has been a disposition shown to
wait for capital to come in and
develop tho mines, but as those
who   hold  tho strings to  the
money bags havo been slow in
coming forward many of the
mineowners   have   decided to
wait no longer,  but  to  get a
hustle on themselves and  convince the mouied men that they
have missed  grand opportunities.
"The Grunt, which is u copper
proposition, situated on Buckhorn mountain, has a shaft GI
feet in depth. From the bottom of this drifting is going on.
Tlie ledge is a very large one,
but there are different accounts
given of the size of the pay ore
body. It is probably from 12
to 15 feet iu width, the ore
that is lieing taken out of the
drift is by far the richest that
has been taken from the mine.
'The Rainbow, which is situated in the same neighborhood
and is said to be us promising
as the Grant at the same depth,
has let a contract to run 100
feet on their tunnel, which it is
fully believed will curry its face
to the ledge at a depth of 200
feet below the surface.
The Opal has advertised for
proposals to run a tunnel on its
property for a distance of IWO
feet. Tho bids were to be open
ed today.
"Tho Orogon, under the man
agement of A. M. Smulley, is
taking out good oro.    Several
shipments have been made to
smelters, with most satisfactory
results.
"The air is full of rumors of
preparations for resinning work
all along the line und there
■leens little doubt at this time
hat tliere will be a good deal
if work in progress within the
next 60 days."
Waterloo Making: Shipments.
Two more gold bricks fnun
the Waterloo, in Catnp McKinney, have been received by Secretary ) Charles  Wolf of   tho
Waterloo   company,  Spokane,

London Truth dubs the Sabbatarians of Ontario, whose
Sunday Observance Act has
just been declared ultra vires
by the Judicial Committee of
the Privy Council, a set of narrow-minded bigots.
A correspondent of the Toronto World asks: "How long
aro the Canadian people to be
fleeced by the express companies now doing business in Canada? The rates were raised
again on July 1st. By decreasing the weight allowed for n
25-cent parcel they have added
nearly one-third to the charges.
Twenty years ago 10 pounds
were carried 100 miles for 25
cents. Now two pounds is the
limit."
An Oregon chemist and metallurgist, has made silver from
gold and developed a new metal
from slate, from which he expects to produce gold. It seems
lie has developed a new metal
from commercial slate, abundant in that state, whicli has an
affinity for the atom of gold and
silver, which he calls "rixum."
The theory he has heen working
upon is tho disintegration of the
atom into unit ions aud the subtraction from gold and the addition of rixum ions to the silver atom. The'process consists
of a strong acid solution com-
hined with powerful electric
currents and long exposures to
their action, causing the destruction of a portion of the ions
in the atom by electrical conveyance into a similar solution
of rixum.

Money enough is behind it, and

The business manager, Hayden
Talbot, announces grandly:
"It will set a standard never
before attempted by a metropolitan newspaper, and every effort will constantly be exerted
to raise that standard. The
publication will aim to be re
presentative of what a clean
newspaper should be. Tliere
will be no details of scandals
aud long-drawn-out honors of
murder. I judge that women
prefer to read other things, and
would rather have the news of
this kind excluded from their

There are rumors of cabinet
changes resulting from the retirement of lion. Mr, Blair,
One of the rumors which has
received currency through the
columns of the Ottawa Free
Press, the Liberal organ which
recently passed under new mail'
agement, is that Hon. Mr. Sifton
may become Minister of Railways, with Senator Teinplenian
as Minister of Interior. This
rumor gives color to one which
prevailed about a year ago that
when Hon. James Ross resigned
the Governorship of the Yukon
to become a member of parliament, it was with the expectation of ultimately entering the
cabinet as Minister nf Interior.

THE LIBERAL PLATFORM.
The liberal platform, us
adopted at the provincial
liberal convention held at Vancouver on February 7th, 1902, is
as follows:
1. The immediate redistribution of the constituencies of
tlie province on the basis of
population but allowing a
smaller unit of population per
seat for the outlying districts.
2. Government ownership,
Dominion, provincial nud municipal, of public services of
utilities is sound and should be
carried out in British Columbia.
3. Should it be advisable at
any time to grant aid to a railway company such shall be in
cash and not in land and no
bonus of any kind shall lie given
without definite and effective,
means being taken to safeguard
the interests of the province in
the management of the road,
control of the freight and passenger rates, and provision made
against sueh railway having
any liability against it except
for actual cost.       ,
4. Immediate construction
of the Coast-Kootenay railway;
the Cariboo railway; a railway
from Alberni to a point on the
east coast of the island; a road
in the northern part of the
province from the coast to the
eastern boundary with **H extension to the northern boundary; the railway from Vernon
to Midway hy north fork of
Kettle river; with necessary
branch lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcement of the
act now in force compelling the
scaling of logs by government
scalers.
6. That such legislation
should be enacted as will result
iu making the lands included in
the various dyking areas available for cultivation us quickly
as possible and seeun prompt
payments of assessments when
due.
7. That the government
should keep in touch with conditions in connection with mining, protecting said industry
against combines and   trusts
caused by. strikes and lock-outs,
'and an earnest effort ought to
be made to provide some miati*
of preventing such strikes and
lock-outs, and we npproVo the
adoption of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the
province stands iu need of revision. Taxation should bear upon
privilege rather than upon
industry, andnoaddition should
be made to the debt of the
province except for public works
properly chargeable to capital.
11. The retaining of the
resources of the province as an
[ asset for the benefit of the
people and taking effective
measures to prevent the alienation of the publicdomain except
for actual bona fide business or
industrial purposes, putting an
end to the practice of speculating iu connection with the
same.
12 The construction and
maintenance of roads throughout the province to aid in the
development of the mining und
agricultural districts.

to flukes and fish-bones, blowholes and blubber.   Now we see
men all around  us  who have
heen swallowed by monstrous
misfortunes.   Some of them sit
down on a piece of whalebone
and give it up.   They say:   "No
use! 1 shall never get back my
money   or restore   my   good
name or  recover my  health."
They float out to sea and never
again are heard of.   Others, the
moment  they  go   ilown    the
throat of. some  great trouble,
hogin to plan for egress.    They
make   rapid estimate  of  the
length of the  vertebrae,  and
come to the conclusion how far
they   are    iu.     They   dig  up
enough spermaceti out of the
darkness to make a light, and
keep turning this way and that,
till the first you know they are
out.   Determination to get well
has much to do with recovered
invalidism.   Firm will to defeat
bankruptcy    decides   financial
deliverance.    Never surrender
to misfortune   or discouragement.   You can, if .you are spry
enough, make it as uncomfort
ahle for the whale as the whale
can make it uncomfortable for
you.   Tliere will be some place
where you can brace your feet
against bis ribs, and some largo
upper tooth around which you
can take hold, and he will soon
lie as glad to get rid of you for
a tenant us you will be glad to
get rid of him for a  landlord.
