The bride, who was given away by her

light navy blue relieved with white silk
and Cambridge blue, with^at to match.
Her ornaments were gold and diamonds,
the gift of the bridegroom. Miss Ethel

erected from which railway cars may

Bill Squires, the much-heralded champion pugilist of Australia, succumbed to
the blow of a Canadian fist at Colma,
Cal., Thursday, after he had been in
the ring two minutes with Tommy
Burns for the world's heavy-weight
championship. The men who witnessed
the brief meeting between the two fighters were charitable enough to call
Squires a " dub." They designated him
a "false alarm," who should have been
pitted against a fourth-rate fighter rather than any pugilist with the slightest
possession of ring skill. To say that
the nine thousand persons who journeyed to Colma to witness the fight were
disappointed would be phrasing it mildly, indeed.
Japan Preparing Por War.
A new reason for the transfer of the
United States Atlantic squadron to the
Pacific ocean has been learned at Washington, D. C. It is said that owing to
reports of secret service agents, who
have been in Japan, the warlike move
has been made.
The secret agents of the United States
government have made thorough inspections of the movements of the Mikado's government, and report that undue preparations for war have been
made in the Orient.
The report was hurried to headquarters in Washington, and has resulted in
the hurried orders recently issued for
the cruise of the Atlantic squadron to
the Pacific.
The official reason for the
has been given out as that a
cruise was contemplated.

to the tipples. It is expected that by
the first of October these will be in operation, and coal, at the rate of several
hundred tons per day, being shipped out.
The underground operations are in
charge of Alex. Faulds, one of the best
underground coal miners in British Columbia, while the surface workings are
in charge of Bruce Warden, late of
Bankhead. Both gentlemen are the
best qualified for their respective departments that the company could secure, and the best results are expected
from their work.
As I have said, the possibilities accruing to the Interior by the development
of these mines are of the highest order.
The location is central to a very large
district containing many deposits of
copper, gold and iron ore. To the wert
and north is the Ten-Mile creek, up
which many fine deposits of copper have
been discovered within fifteen or twenty
miles of the coal mines. South and east
is the famous Aspen Grove copper
camp, in which, also, many large dykes
of low grade ore have been exposed,
and which has undoubtedly a future as
a large producer, as soon as transportation'is available.
Iu the upper regions of the Similkameen valley and along Bear creek are
also large deposits of gold and copper
ores, now being worked on a considerable scale. Below those again are the
well known camps on the One-Mile, Copper mountain and Voigt's camp, and
many other promising deposits more or
less well known. At Hedley is one of
the largest gold mines in the world, besides a number of undeveloped prospects of great promise.

Record Breaking Mark  Reached  Por
Fiscal Tear Ending June 30th.-
Magnlncent Revenue Prom
Vast Timber Areas.
The McBride government will be able
to announce to the people of British Columbia a surplus of $1,000,000, the
greatest surplus of any which the Conservatives have been able to pile up on
the deficits of previous governments.
The fiscal year ended on June 30, and
the returns made to Hon. R. G. Tatlow,
minister of finance and acting premier
since that date show that the record-
breaking mark of $1,000,000 will be
reached when the balance for the 1906-
u7 is struck.
This splendid showing reflects unbounded credit upon the administration
of the finances of the province by Hon.
Mr. Tatlow. As is well known, when
he took hold of the finances the treasury was not only empty but obligations
contracted by previous governments had
to be met in order to save the credit of
British Columbia. Not only was the
situation saved at that time but the internal affairs of the province were
thenceforth so skilfully handled that
annual surpluses have been resulting
ever since.
One factor in the situation which has
enabled the production' of the million
dollar surplus has been the immense development of the natural resources of
the province under the present administration. The vast timber areas of the
province during the past fiscal year produced over $800,000 in revenue and the
receipts from that source will next year
run greatly in excess of the million

NIOOLA OOAL MINES.
[Continued from page 1.]
this district itself furnish a market for
the coke but the existing smelters in the
boundary districts will be brought into
communication with the Nicola mines.
There will be less than a half the distance to haul coke to them that there
is from the Crows Nest Coal Company
in Fernie, and with competition in railways, as there will be, the cost of transportation coke will be correspondingly
less than from Fernie. The coal has
been tested for coking purposes, and
has been found to be of an excellent
quality, yielding a coke very high in
carbon and very low in sulphur. The
market for this product is, therefore,
very large, and should prove a large
source of profit to the company. The
company has already been approached
for a supply of coal and coke to the
coast smelters. Different types of coke
ovens are to be built for experimental
purposes at the mines, and as soon as
the efficiency of the different types has
been demonstrated coke ovens will be
built as rapidly as required. In the
present condition of the coal market
and the cost at which the company will
be able to produce its coal, it is believed
that $2 per ton is a conservative estimate of the profit whicn may be realized.
The situation is already commanding
the attention of smelter men with a
view of getting in on the ground for
establishment of such an industry as
soon as the prospects for the extension
of the Nicola branch of the C. P. R. to
Midway, from Nicola, takes some definite form.

Mixed and taken in teaspoonful doses
after each meal and at bedtime, is pronounced by a prominent physician to be
the best mixture for the cure of the
kidney, bladder and all urinary troubles.
This, says the doctor, is the most simple though remarkable prescription ever
written to cleanse the system of impurities and waste matter. It acts as a
powerful tonic to the kidneys, forcing
them to filter out the acids and poisons,
overcoming rheumatism, lame back,
sciatica and other afflictions arising
from sour, impure blood.
The ingredients can be procured at
any good drug store, and being purely
vegetable and entirely harmless, can
easily be mixed at home.
If you have a suffering friend show

pleased to learn of so simple and highly
recommended a remedy.
Timber License Demand.
The officials of the lands and works
department record the fact that there
has never been so great a demand for
timber licenses as at the present time,
and that the majority of the lands asked for are on Vancouver Island, although
many applications are being received
for land in the Kootenay and other districts in the mainland, the outside capitalist and investor turning towards this
ialand as the field promising the greatest returns and the largest profits.
This part of British Columbia is more
in the public eye now than it has been
heretofore.
