One of the cheekiest bits of business perhaps ever attempted in this
oamp has been perpetrated recently. It seems that a Nelson printer
wanted to get the printing for the
Summer Carnival and came over
here to Bolioit for the patronage
of this as well as for other things
on the side. He did not succeed in
hiB objeot as far as tbe Summer
Carnival was concerned and consequently sent in a bill to the
Carnival committee for $10 70 Iocs
of profit.
This is a good opportunity for
the Summer Carnival people. All
that has to be done is to lay an
information for the breaking of the
munioipal bylaw dealing with this
peddling for business without a
lioence, subjeot lo a fine of $50,
collect half the fine and credit the
Finance committee with that
amount. Anyway the local business men aver that the law will be
put into force if any fresh attempt
is made in this direction.
San Francisco, Aug. 13.—As the
time approaches for the contest between Jeffries and Corbett, who are
to meet on Friday night for the
heavyweight championship of the
world, popular interest in the fight
is rapidly increasing. The management of the club under whose
auspices the mill takes place is in
receipt of applications for tickets
indicating a large attendance from
out of town. Chicago, Denver, New
OrleanB and even New York and
other cities further east will be represented at the ringside.
The training quarters of Corbett
were visited today by many sporting men desirous of obtaining a
first hand opinion of hiB condition.
The outlook ie for a large amount
of money to be wagered on the result of the contest, JeffrieB will
naturally rule a heavy favorite in
tbe betting and the only quesl'on is
one of odds. Corbett, however, :>.«
a large number of devoted followers
and admirers in this, his home city,
and the Jeffries money will find
ready takers, particularly ii tempting odds are offered.

Vienna, Ang. 13.— A Salonica
despatch to the Neue Freie Presee
saya that 1,000 young Bulgarians
have taken the field in the neighborhood of Monastir. The Bulgarian families there have been ordered to prepare provisions for the
insurgents. Many female teachers
and girls have joined the band in
order to tend the wounded. Several
Bulgarian officers are reported to
be organizing the insurgent forces.
The Bulgarian agency at Monastir
is said to be used as an insurgent
recruiting office, and the Russian
Consul is asserted to be sympathizing actively with the movement.
The situation is aggravated by the
discontent and subordination of the
Turkish Redifs, who are deserting
and selling their weapons to the
insurgents. The committees are
compelling the agricultural population to take up arms.
Offioial reports state that Bulgarian bands have occupied Kru-
sbevo, and are beseiging other villages in the vilayet of Monastir,
The situation is getting worse
and military action is slack owing
to the want of troops. This is
making the insurgents bold, and a
general uprising is feared. Troops
are concentrating near Krushevo,
and an engagement is imminent.
The Macedonian insurrection is
extending. The Bulgarian Exarch,
who has been invited by the Grand
Vizier to exert a pacifying influence
over his Macedonian flock, has declined on the ground that his admonitions would not be listened to.
The Bulgarian government haB asked the powers to use their iniluence
to induce the Porte to refrain Irom
employing Bashi-Bazooks in the
suppression of the rebellion.
The Turkish government is muoh
disturbed by the outbreak of outrages and the avowed intention of
the revolutionary oommittee to kill
all Musselmans.

The following extraots from a
letter appearing in one of the ooast
papers giveB a dear idea of one or
two things whioh the province
should bestir itself in trying to obtain from the promotors of the
Grand Trunk Pacifio.
"A contract has been made for the
construction of a transcontinental
railway containing no conditions
which should, in the interest of
this province, have been imposed
upon the promotors. All the other
provinces have had their interests
carefully arranged for. Manitoba,
although possessing two railways,
giving it an outlet to the East and
the Great Lakes, is to have a road
constructed by the government
from Winnipeg eastward to the
Atlantio, through the northern part
of Ontario and Quebec. The Maritime Provinces are to have an unnecessary line paralleling the Intercolonial. British Columbia, itis
true.is to have a northern line built
in four years, terminating at Port
Simpson, 600 mile« north of Van
couver,which may be built Irom the
eastern boundary to the sea. No con
dition is made for commencement
of construction on the Coast, and
prosecution of the work from the
west in an easterly direotion. _ Any
class of labor may be employed
Asiatic or European. Even if our
representatives at Ottawa have no
influence it is to be hoped that
their voices will be raised in the
Commons and the Senate, Jproteet-
ing against the passage of the bill
in its present shape.
"If this line is to be pushed to
completion by constructing it from
Edmonton to the coast little or no
benefit will accrue to the people of
this province during construction.
Whereas, if the company are compelled to begin work at Port Simpson and build each mile from west
to east within the oonfines of the
province, a great impetus will be
given to trade, and a new era of
prosperity Bimilar to that which
obtained during construction of
the Canadian Pacific railway, will
be inaugurated.
Possibly the provincial govern-
rneut from whom no doubt a
oharter will be required, together
with other concessions, will find
that it can obtain lor the people
that which our representatives
have neglected to secure.
Is India to be included in the
Chamberlain scheme for the commercial union of the British Empire and if so what effect is it going to have upon trade relations?
In the first place let it be premised
that the general import duty on
goods entering India is five per
oent with a notable exception in
case of cotton goods, where it ie
only 3. per cent. This duty is
oharged upon all imports, whether
from within the Empire or not.
There is  no preferential duty on
British goods. The value of the
export trade amounts to about$350,-
000,000 annually excluding gold,
silver and reexports. The value of
the import trade ir about $300,-
000,000. The chief import is cotton goods and yarn, whioh amounts
to about $84,000,000 yearly. The
next in order of importance is metals, excluding hardware and cutlery which merely totals $20,000,-
000. After that come in about the
order named sugar, oils, railway
plant, maohinery, provisions, liquors, hardware and cutlery, apparel, manufactured silk and cotton goods, all of which exceed in
value $3,000,000 annually. There
is also a demand for salt, drugs,
dyes, spices, raw silk, grain, glasB,
ooal, chemicals and precious stones
the trade in whioh varies from a
little over a million yearly for
precious stones to close on three
millions for salt, In addition the
value of the government stores imported annually amounts to over
$13,000,000. Now that iB the market which in oase of a zollverein or
system of preferential duties being
established Canada would participate in with the other portions of
the Empire to the practical exclusion of other nations, except under
disadvantage. It will be seen that
the metals, maohinery and grain
are the prinoipal markets whioh
would avail Canada to any great
On the other hand how does
India stand with regard to Canada
ou its export trade. Now the
principal export from India is rice,
which is valued at about $36,000,-
000 annually. Jute and cotton
exports both are little short of this
mark. Seeds and hides come next
and then comes cotton goods
(principally shipped to Oriental
points.) The cotton goods export
is valued at about $26,000,000 annually which ia also about the value
o! the tea export. Then comes
opium, the trade in which ia valued
at $20,000,000. Jute manufactures
and indigo come next in importance and then comes the export in
wheat, amounting to about $5,000,-
000. Wool, coffee, teak, Bhellao,
oils, silk, grain, provisions, spices,
saltpetre and manures range in
order of importance as named,
from $6,000,000 down to a little
over $1,200,000. It will be seen
that there is little in which either
India is rivalling Canada to any
extent or which Canadian manufacturers may fear competition.
A glance at the figures shows tbat
the bugaboo of cheap labor has no
One other point to be considered
is that India is a veritable sink of
the precious metals, importing
every year from $20,000,000 to $30,-
000,000, two-thirds of whioh is silver, more than it exports. Canada
has much ol this which she can exchange for Indian commerce.

[Adopted at Revelstoke, September 13th, 1902.]
I. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of the party in matters of provincial roads and
trails; the ownership and control of railways
and the development of the agricultural resources of the province as laid down in the
platform adopted in October, 1899, which is us
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and the building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of the province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
does not give thc government of the provinco
control of rates over lines bonused, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in thc development of the agricultural resources of the
province." ■
£2. That in the meantime and until the railway policy above set forth can be accomplished, a general railway act be passed giving
freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in thc United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
:\. That to encourage the mining industryt
the taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on the basis of aperecnUige on the net profits,
4. That the government ownership of tele
phone systems Should be brought about as u
first step in the acquisition of public utilities
5. That a portion of every coal area here
after to be disposed of should be reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if their operation becoraos
necessary or. advisable.
(i. That in the pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
should be taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
the province should persevere in the effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms in the
way of subsidy 'and appropriations for the
province should be vigorously pressed upbn the
Dominion government.
9. That, the silver-lead industries of the prov
ince bo fostered and encouraged by the Imposition of increased customs duties on lead and
lead products imported into Canada, and that
the Conservative members of the Dominion
House be urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in great loss and injury both to the
parties directly concerned aud to tho public,
legislation should be pussed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
II, That itis advisablo to foster the manufacture of the raw products of the province
within the province as fur as practicable by
means of taxation on the said raw productst8ub-
ject to rebate of t he same in whole or part
when manufactured in British ('olumbia.

A good deal is being made just
now of the white quartz finds on
Poplar and Cooper creeks in the
Lardo country. But it is only
another instance of tbe faot that
only a small portion of the vast
mineral area of the Ko3tenays has
been discovered- Right here in the
vicinity of Rossland, within 15
miles of the camp;iB a white quartz
ledge whioh also carries free gold
•nd which, unlike the Lardo finds,
iB of enormous width. It ia true
that it is not a high grade property
but high grade properties have a
nasty knaok of occurring in small
pooketB. It is low grade, but not
so low thut, under proper conditions, it cannot be made to pay.
And a low grade property is, as all
well versed mining men know, the
very backbone of mining. If it
oan be made to pay it iB no flash
in the pan, but sometimes is worked for centuries. 'Of this there are
numberless instances in the history
of mining.
The miuing property to whicb
reference is here made is now
known as the St. Joseph Gold
Mines, which has the claimB Victoria and Walter and Theodore
Fractions. This is situated about
five miles above the confluence of
the two branches of Murphy oreek,
on the weet slope of Maokay mountain, on whioh white quartz carrying good values has been discovered in more than one place. The

feet in from the mouth of the adit,
showing that the width of the lead
iB even greater below than is shown
The tunnel haa penetrated some
30 feet beyond this and is in solid
ore and a representative of the
World was permitted to take samples right across the breast and
bring them into RoBsland for assay. No fairer offer than thiB
oould be made by the proprietor of
any claim. Past assays show that
the quartz carries gold and silver
values running all the way from a
trace to $4.76 in free gold, the general average is about $3 free gold.
Tbe ore is largely free milling and
this character is preserved below aa
in the surface stripping, showing
that subaerial disintegration has
had little to do with the richness of
the values found above. This ia
probably accounted for by the fact
that a small Btream runs right
acrosB the vein close to the stripping, whioh would certainly carry
away values thus deposited.
The exaot percentage of free
milling ore is stated to be 45 per
oent, and the remainder is concentrating ore, whioh oan be brought
down 11 to 1, running from $18.93
to $49.64.
Besides the work here done there
are other   openings 300  feet and
500 feet south, where the vein
again outcrops and, surface cuts
have been made upon the ledge
showing that it runs continuously
in a northerly and southerly direction over the olaims, the length being proved in this manner to be at
least 1793 feet.
On the dump there ia muoh
ore and there ia also a large
amount ready to be blocked out.
The oompany is acquiring the timber rights on the properties and
has in addition a water right on
Murphy creek whioh, even at tbis
dry season of the year, is carrying
some 200 miners inches of water.
A short flume some 1000 feet long
will bring thiB water to a stamp
mill whioh is proposed to be eroded close to the main tunnel referred
to. The proposal is to orush the
the free milling ore and to concentrate the remainder. The Elmore
is now making an assay of the ore
recently brought in with a view of
establishing the claims made and
of operating a concentrating plant
The great trouble with the property is its distance from the railway. Ten miles of trail separates
it from the C. P. R. at the mouth
of Murphy creek. What is absolutely necessary is the building of
a wagon road from that point to
the mine. The engineering difficulties are small, as the road would

Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen Gity, B. ©.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of camp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the ereotion of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will oOBt about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by oue of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining oentres were selling for the same price that they are today being Bold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will mike this town a railroad centre and divisional poiut, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast they will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill iB
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for milea around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through tbis
townBite. which is looated in the oentre of the whole Similkameen valley and will beoome the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.

Fraternal Societies Enjoy
an Outing at Deer
It would be hard to imagine more
beautiful weather than that whioh
yesterday whioh ushered in the occasion of the excursion to Deer
Park by the combined fraternal
societies of Trail. It was all that
could be desired and was thoroughly enjoyed by the more than 200
people who participated.
The trip up the river was made
on the steamer Rossland, Captain
Qore in command, the destination
being reached before the noon hour.
Arriving at Deer Park the visitors divided into small parties, scattering in different shady nook?,
and partook of a basket lunch.
After lunch athletic sports of
various kinds were indulged in, the
principal event being a baseball
game between benedicts and bachelors, in whioh the former carried
off the honors by a score of 5 to 2.
The Trail brass band accompanied
the exoursionists and dancing was
in order on the boat both going and
The following appeared in laBt
week's Fernie Free Press, aB well
as substantially the same thing in
that paper's Morrissey edition, the
"Mr. F. Keffer, manager of the
Mother Lode mine, and well known
in Fernie as a member of the oon-
oialiation oommittee, stayed over a
day in Fernie this week on his
way east as far as Medicine Hat.
He reports mining operations in
the Bundary oountry to be nourishing. The fuel situation is steadily
improving, the smelters seldom being entirely without coke, though
the supply often runs low. He
felt assured of the fact that the
ooal company's new oven plants
now under construction would permanently dispose of the coke shortage question. He expressed muoh
satisfaction with the way the management of tbe coal company was
treating the smelters of the Boundary oountry. He believed the company was doing its best to supply
the demand and to distribute its
product equitably among the
smelters, and he deplored the unfair criticisms of some of the papers
in the smelter country, in which
the real facts were misrepresented."
Just about the time the Free
Press man waa talking to Mr.
Keffer, as above stated, the Bmelter

Some two weeks ago tbe Sunset
smelter at Boundary Falls was
forced to blow out one of its two
furnaces, solely because coke did
not arrive from the Crow's Nest.
The result of that was the entire
suspension of work at the Sunaet
mine, and the reduction of forces
at other mines which shipped to
that smelter.

he keeps on, will soon be known
