"Tha district which is here referred

international boundary line  hetween
Mexico mid the United Stnt.es and the
mineral belt lies lietween the Sierra de

mineral belt appears to lie about HO

that section lying inland about. 12 or 15
miles from Point Qanjoes, which ynu

WEST F(M_ COUNTRY
That Section Will Go Ahead In
the Spring.
SO SAYS J. A. TUZO, OF MIDWAY
In a Recent Interview at Nelson, B.C.
-Rich Mines Around Beaverton and Carmi.
.1. A. Tuzo lefl Midway last, Tuesday
for England, where lie will spend ihe
winter witli friends In Warllngham,
Surrey.  The trip is partly for pleasure
and partly on business in connection
with his various  mining interests iti
British Columbia.   Mr.  Tu/.o is well
and favorably known in the Province,
andls heavily Interested In real estate
and milling, not only in this district
but iii the Kootenays, Mycin creek and
West Kork countries lis well.   No heller evidence of tlie popularity of Mr,
Tuzo could have been exhibited thnn
ihe large crowd which gathered nt the
station to bid him farewell.  A numher
of the boys escorted bim .is far as
(ireenwood on the tram, where lie wn*
met hy a number nf friends who were
anxiously awaiting his arrival to wish
him hon voyage.   He will return lo
Midway in the spring.   Mr. Tuzo has
always  been   very  successful   in  bis
investments in  real   estate.   In  the
early days he invested in Nelson, B,
C„ believing thai. In time it would he
a groat commercial point, and tbat bis
holdings would increase rapidly in value ] such  was  the case, and to-day
bis property is   worth  considerable
money.   Nearly two  years ago Mr.
Tuzo Hist visited the Boundary country, looking over it thoroughly, aud
his   former   experiences   in   west em
towns  at  once  impressed  him   that
Midway was the coining town of tbe
inleiiur, ami ns a result of Ids observations be Interested himself in ihe town
nnd has since made il bis headquarters.
On his way out  Mr. Tuzo was interviewed nt Nelson, and give some interesting Information  regarding the
We-t Kork country, where as hefoie
stated he is Interested In (he town ,,f
Beaverton ntnl in a nunilier of mineral
claims.   An interview with a man of
Mr. Tuzn's experience, good judgment
and integrity carries  weight und is
consequently of value.   It is not nne
of those interviews gleaned hy a reporter over-anxious tn obtain   news,
and furnished by some would-be important who had spent several dollars
in "ginning up" in order to be given a
hearing, this being his only means nf
having bis name brought hefore tin;
public.   Mr. Tuzo is very reticent at
furnishing Information, hut when induced to do so, his vii us regarding
anything are   always   conservative,
The following is taken from the Nelson
Tribune :
J. A. Tuzo,a well-known mining man
operating on tha Wesl Fork of tho
Keltic  river   near   Heave,ton,   wilh
headquarters at Midwuy, was in the
city  yesterday   and   gives some  interest im; details of the country,   "The
section," he snys, "Is practically new,
hut It is sure in become n husy mining
center.   The progress during the presenl  year "as not as marked as wns
hoped, largely because the government
wagon road frnm Westbridge to Beaverton was lint, completed and packing
hv horses is ihe only means of access
at present to the heart "f the district.
A sleiub road will be run fron, the end
of the wagon road Ibis winter nnd the
properties now working will not have
to suspend operations, while the completion of the wagon road next summer will enahle teams In haul in supplies and machinery at a Imv rale, The
West Kork bas several  mineral  hells.
Ahoul Boomerang cieek is a free milling hclt, but, the nwners of the pro],erties have not done much wilh their lo-
catloni for sonic  reason.   Al  other
points  the  miner il   is  clean galena,
while elsewhere the galemt curries copper,   Laat year a couple of prospect rs
went   Into lhe dislrict and stAked a
number of claims which they Bold nt
Hood figures, and a rush followed, The
(Jarml group, of which Hob Longley,
formerly of Nelsnn, Is superintendent,
is working and bos from 1,500 to 2,000
tons of ore on the dump which they
bave contracted lo deliver to the Standard pyrltlc smelter now being constructed at Bonndary Palls, near Midway.  The Belle, al Beaverton, is undoubtedly a valuable high grade galena
properly, and in the same vicinity are
a number of  promising  properties,
Barharian  Brown has a crew at wmk
on the Washington and Idaho group,
and the showing is said lo la' excellent.
Considerable trouble has arisen in Connection  With  townsile disputes, hut
these lire settled and the country will
doubt less progress rapidly next year.
The absence of a wagon roud and a
sawmill prevented the town of Beaverton  trom growing as it would have
done under other clrcuimt»nce», C. M.OROUSK Makaokk

or in favor of the Labor party. Do
not stay away from the polls because

did your best,
Aaa result of a conference held
recently by Prof. J. Robertson with
Hoo. J, H. Turner, Minister of Agri
culture at which Mr. J. R. Andetsoo,
the Deputy Minister was present, Mr,
Robertson proposes sending three of
his stuff out from Ottawa in the spring,
one of whom is an authority on feeding and breeding cattle, another on
cheese making and testing milk and
the third on butter-making and dairying. These men will bring an outfit
and will remain in the Piovinie
nbout six weeks, during which time
tbey will hold Hve day meetings,
where practical feeding, testing and
dairying in all its branches will he
taught, and address made on various
subjects pertaining to dairying. At
these meetings it is proposed that
students shall take a course, whose
names shall be entered beforehand. In
addition to these people, he proposes
sending a practical stock man and a
practical potillryman, tbe latter with
all appliances for breeding and fattening poultry. Tbese two latter gentlemen will spend about two week* each
in lhe Province.
The existence of a Chamber of Mines,
such as has been recently organized at
Rossland, wiH supply a long felt wanl
in this district. The lack of such an
institution has greatly retarded the
development of the entire province,
taking capital to South Africa and the
Australian colonies, where better
means of acquainting the outside
world with their mineral resources,
are provided for. If the organization
is properly conducted, the benefits
that the Province will receive as a
result of their efforts will be nf great
value to thc mining districts of British
Columbia. It will be the means of
furnishing reliable Information regarding nur mines and inducing capital to come in mote freely than hereto-
fine. J.B.McArthur upon being elected president, of tbe organization made
the foil,living very pertinent remarks
regarding the object which it intended
to serve. He said : "The time has arrived when some central organization
ought to be established which would
obtain all data in regard to the development of the mines— the iostal
lation of mining machinery for the
use of the mines in all of the various
camps of the district of Southern
British Columbia, and also to obtain
week hy week the shipment of ore
from each of the mines in these camps
—their estimated value, the smelter or
mills to which the ote was shipped for
treatment, aud tbis information
should he tabulated by the Chamber
of Mines aod cabled to the financial
centres uf London, Berlin and Paris,
and also handed to the Associated and
Canadian Press association* tor publication in the Newspapers of the United
Slates and Canada. In tbis way the
ptoduct of the mines would lie placed
weekly hefore the investing puhlic as
the result of the mining operations in
Ihese camps"
inree catioaa* oi niauiiiuorj   .......
arrived for the Standard smelter at
Boundary Falls, and the balance will
Ite in next week. Manager Laidlaw
has made a number of ore contracts,
and fully expect* to be in operation by
January,
Private despatches from New York
state that under heavy buying orders
the British Columbia Copper coni*
pany's shares have advanced from >1<
to $20 per share, with sale* totalling
over 20,000 shares. This places the
company'* holding*, the Mother Lode
mine in Deadwood camp and Ihe
smelter, at four million dollars.
l„cal operators are jubilant over Ihe
continued advancement, a* Boston and
New York capital is being attracted
by these reports to the possibilities at
depth of thc immense copper-gold bodies oft he Boundary district.
From present appearances the Marguerite mine in Deadwood camp will
make one of the big mines of the
Boundary district. Both the east and
west crosscuts from the 100-foot level
are in ore. The development work
has conclusively proved the existence
of two parallel leads about fifty feet
apart at a depth of 100feet, and rapid
ly converging. The size of Ihe ore
body is not yet known, the one in the
east having just been encountered,
and the one on the nest pierced for a
distance nf 25 feet and no wall discov-
ed. The ore is arsenical iron and chal-
copyrites, and carries fair values. A
large body of higher grade ore was
partially opened up a few we. kg ago in
the old workings, but at present the
development is being confined to tbe
workings at the 100-foot level. In
building a wagon road from the main

Report of the Inland Revenue   De-
partment—Chief Analyst Recommends  that Sale   of Alum
Baking Powders be
Stopped.
The Inland Revenue Department has
issued ils report on Baking Powders
(Bulletin No. B8).   If. contains analyses
of 150 samples of powders bought of
dealers and manufacturers in the Do
minion, 85 per cent of which are found
to be alum inixttfes.   In view of the
large proportion of this class of pow-
tiers, Chief Analyst Macfarlane recommends that legal proceedings he taken
against parties selling them, on the
ground that they are unbealthful articles of fond, and believesth.it their sale
will be condemned by the Courts,
The analyses were made hy the As
sistant Analyst, Mr, A. McGill, who
fully discusses the injurious nature of
alum in baking powder, Mr. McGill
adds: "In my last report I expressed
my convict Ion, based on experimental
evidence, that alum in baking powders
is dangerous to health. The large
mas* of evidence since accumulated
ha* more strongly convinced me of the
correctness of that opinion. My per
sonal opinion i* d. cidedlv against the
use of alum, The health of a nation i*
too serious a matter to lie imperilled
lightly, and if it be impossible tosecure
prohibitory legislation, it ia desirable
that manufacturers of aluui powders
should lie required to state the contents
on the packages."
Professor Ruttan, nf McGill College,
Montreal, who mud.- a series of experiments on the digestibility of brend
baked with alum powders, is quoted aa
follows: "The unanimous verdict of
my experiment* is tbat alum powder*
introduce into a form nf food of uni
vernal use, agents which are detrimental to the functional activity of the
digestive ferments. They must there*
foie lie prejudicial to to health, and
the only course is to carefully avoid
them."
Following are lbe names of baking
powders containing alum sold in this
vicinity, given in tne Analyst's report:

A person who haa never heen placed
in a ludicrous position, by having a
wrong idea regarding a certain thing,
cannot imagine how cheap it make*
one feel. The other night hy muddling
the date* in his own mind, a young
man took hi* lady love to the Royal
Theatre in Vancouver, to *ee Too Much
Johnson, under Ihe impression that
Quo Vadi* wa* on the bourtla. Now
there I* a great deal of difference hetween two such *how* a* Two Much
Johnson and Quo Vadis, and to complicate matters, thi* young fellow, hy
virtue nf tbe position he bad fnr a long
lime oerupied, wu* supposed to know
something of dramatir criticism, He
wa* a little surpiiled at thn scenery in
the first set, which the raising of the
curtain revealed, but assured himself
that soon this very modern singe setting would be replaced by representation* nf l he architecture and surrounding* of antiquity. II' pointed out
ihe nonchalant Billing* to Iiis sweetheart a* Petrnnitii, but could not answer her enquiry why that character
wore a common negligee summer suit
instead of ths Roman toga which lent
dignity to the figure. When Ihe Irrepressible Johnson suddenly appeared
u|«m the stage he wat totally nonplussed, hut Anally concluded that he
must be Kmperor Nero in one of hi*
fantastic mood*. By t he middle of the
act he began to wonder if the company
people had a proper conception nf the
Quo Vadi*novel, and and to simplify
the matter aeenred a programme fiom
the tuher, Then he *aw where hn hod
mads the mistake, and as he informed
the fair occupier of the sent next him,
he promised her a pair of new gloves
if ahe would quiet her mirthfulne*s,
which threatened to develop into
hilarity.
