ITEMS OF INTEREST
DOMINION COPPER 'COMPANY HAS
RESUMED WORK.
Good Reports From the Prairie Drops.
���Big Strike on Queen Charlotte
Islands Causes Rush ���The
Road Law Tested
On the 15th inst. the Dominion Copper Co.'s mines at Phoenix and smelter
at Boundary Falls resumed operations
after being shut down for some time.
The leading shipping mines of the
Dominion Co. in Phoenix Camp are the
Rawhide, Brooklyn, Idaho, Snowshoe
and Gold Drop. They also have the
Sunset and other properties in Dead-
wood Camp.
The smelter has a capacity of from
750 to 1000 tons per day, and has about
a month's supply of fuel ahead, which
will enable them to get going very
shortly after a start is made.
When the Bouudary Falls smelter
adds its output of matte to that of the
Granby and B. C" the Boundary output
will soon mount up again.
Optimistic  Crop  Reports.
A Winnipeg despatch say s: Although
the past week has been characterized
by heavy showers, alternating with
spells of heat, the nights generally have
been cool, and from reports received
the young crops do not appear to have
suffered. Apparently root strength
has not suffered by reaon of rapid top
growth, and Superintendent Murray of
the Dominion Experimental farm at
Brandon, says that while there has been
too much hot weather there are really
no ill effects. Grain is still as healthy
looking as could be desired, and there
is no sign of yellow. Beyond, therefore
the inconveniences arising from great
length of straw, the crop to date has so
far maintained its record of best possible cdndition. If ever percentage classification comes into use in the prairie
west the first two months of 1908 will
represent the standard, or 100 points,
by which other seasons can be measured
Normal conditions are only needed to
secure a bumper harvest at least a
month earlier than last year
A Big Strike.
Word of a big strike has just been
received by R. C. Campbell-Johnson,
which has caused great excitement in
the Queen Charlotte Islands. At Tas-
soo Harbor, over on the west side of
Moresby Island, and in line with the
rich Swede group, iron capping and
magnetite have been discovered and a
rush to stake the ground has resulted.
The find was not altogether unexpected, as it was thought that sooner or later prospectors would penetrate the difficult country on the west coast.
CHIPS FROM THB BLOCK.
A Masonic lodge has been organized
at Penticton.
Summerland has no liquor licenses,
and the sidewalks are in a bad state of
repair.
The fiend who murdered Mrs. Morrison at Hazclmere has not yet been
apprehended.
AT THE  DIGGINGS
LOCAL NEWS.
NEW SIX FOOT 8EAM IS STRUCK ON
DIAMOND VALE PROSPECT.
Red Deer, Alta., is gaining fame. It
has on exhibition an orchard in which
15,000 apple trees are in blossom.
Many sweeping statements are made
regarding the Okanagan, the latest being to the effect that Fruitvale will have
a broom factory.
Cranbrook's fifteen houses of ill-shape
occupy the choicest portion of the town-
site and a number of the citizens want
them transplanted.
No black-jack, poker or ping-pong
will be allowed at Calgary during the
big Fair, the Salvation Army having a
monopoly on furnishing excitement for
the evenings.
Floods on the Chilliwack River, assisted by the present high water in the
Fraser, have overflowed Sumas prairie
so that fifteen thousand acres of land
lie under water.    .
"Fighting John" Houston is suggested as the probable first mayor of Prince
Rupert. John's municipal experience
in Nelson should certainly qualify him
against even G. T. P. opposition.
It was reported last week that Mrs.
Guinness, the Laporte murderess, was
in Revelstoke. All the wealthy bachelors fortified themselves with sufficient
booze and took to the timber.
' The provincial government has under
consideration the spending of $100,000
on the building of a wagon road from
Revelstoke to allow supplies to be taken
in from that point to the construction
camps of the G. T. P. west of the Yel-
lowhead pass.
Four thousand five hundred Vancouver Chinamen own property within
the boundaries of the Chinese quarters
worth two million dollars, and property
outside of these boundaries, but within
the city, which is worth one million.
This includes stores, land, houses and
stock in trade.
Right of Road.
A case was tried at Lacombe recently
which is of interest to all���a question
of the right of the road. The driver of
a loaded wagon refused to turn out for
a light rig, being of the opinion that
loads held the roads over empties. As a
consequence the light rig was smashed
and the owner laid a complaint. The
result was that the owner of the load
was fined and ordered to pay the cost
of repairing the damage to the light rig
It is well to know that all vehicles have
equal rights on the road, whether loaded or empty, and while the average
driver will turn out for a load he is not
compelled by law to do so.
Greenwood will celebrate on Dominion
day.
Prince Rupert Townsite.
D'Arcy Tate, the assistant solicitor
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
company, arrived in Victoria Friday
afternoon last, and, accompanied by Mr.
Bacon, the townsite engineer in chief,
and Mr. Hall, the landscape artist of
Boston, he will submit the plans for the
laying out of Prince Rupert to the provincial government and their professional advisers.
The topographical features of the
proposed city fall to Mr. Hall's especial
department, while Mr. Bacon is mainly
responsible for advice on the matter of
railway facilities.
In the circumstances nothing can be
said in respect to the details of the
plans, but it can safely be said that
these plans will provide for the growth
of quite an extensive city, provided
with all the most modern embellishments and conveniences.

New Shute B<'ing Built to Connect Nos.
3 and 4 at Middlesboro With No.
1 Tipple.���Superior Quality
of No. 4 Coal.
A new lead of coal was struck the
past week by the Diamond Vale company on the prospect some little distance
east of the main workings, on which
men have been engaged the past few
weeks. After sinking down thirty feet
and then tunneling in some forty-six
feet a seam of coal was discovered that
is a little over six feet in thickness, and.
of first class quality.
Just what kind of a producer this mine
will turn out to be remains, of course,
to be determined, but those in a position to judge are confident of its staying qualities, and it is only another testimonial as to the abundance of coal to
be found on the company's property.
Operations are going on apace at Diamond Vale and the new shaft will bo put
down as rapidly as possibly.
T. J. Smith, president of the company,
who was in the camp the past week,
says that everything looks rosy for the
future and that before long increased
activity will be the order of the day.
AT MIDDLESBORO CAMP.
Work is steadily progressing at the
Middlesboro colleries, and the management expect shortly to be in a position
to fill even the largest orders for black
diamonds.
Timbering and other improvement
work has been going on for some time
both in the interior and on top at No.' 1
and No. 2 mines, and everything being
put into ship-shape to facilitate the work
of digging out the coal in large quantities and bunking it ready for shipment.
There are more men now employed at
the camp than at any time since J anuary
last, and it is stated on good authority
that within a month or six weeks' time
operations will be going on at the full
capacity.
A gang of carpenters are engaged in
building a shute from the No. 1 tipple
up the hill to Nos, 3 and 4 mines, which
will be connected. The shute is quite a
long one and some trestle work is required in the construction.
At No. 4 the eleven-foot seam which
was discovered but a few weeks since,
shows coal in large quantities and the
quality of the fuel surpasses any yet unearthed at the Middlesboro camp.
This morning's train pulled out from
the colleries two cars of an eight-car
order.

Everything points to a very successful time at the Lower Nicola annual
picnic on Saturday. About all the
available conveyances in Merritt and
Nicola have already been engaged.
The male population of this camp
exceeds that of the be-skirted sex by
about three to one. Of course this is
not handed ou t as a suggestion to towns
having a surplus of eligible female
maids.
Messrs. Frank Beevin, Di. Megraw
and Jimmy Forsythe, who were employed at the Diamond Vale for some time,
left for the coast last week. This trio
was among the pick of the Vale's football aggregation.
J. W. Flannigan, superintendent of
the B. C. Amalgamated Coal Co., was

which was started last year by the A.
E. Howse company, has been taken over

been manager of the store for some
time.
Mr. Lafferty of the Bank of Mon-
taeal staff at Nicola was in town Monday night, accompanied by Mr. R, L.
Clark of Nicola. Mr. Lafferty was
struck with the appearance of Hedley
and its modern conveniences of waterworks, electric lights, etc.���The Hedley

Archibald Dick, provincial mine inspector, was in Merritt this week and
held examinations for certificates of
competency under the Coal Mines Regulation Act. Four candidates appeared
for examination, as follows: John Wilcox, of Middlesboro colleries; R. Ron-
aldson, Harold Johns and Walt Williams,
of the Diamond Vale mines.
The peaceful quietude of Coutlee was
somewhat disturbed last week by a
couple of police court cases. On Friday
George Kilroy, a Siwash, was before
Justice of the Peace Cleasby on a drunk
and disorderly charge. He donated $10
and costs to the good roads cause. Two
klootches, Mary Spring and daughter
Lillle, had also been mixed up in a firewater bender and were brought before
the beak on Saturday. Mary Spring,
who is an old offender, had to spring
herself for $25 and costs, while Lillie
modestly went to her stocking for a
ten-spot. Both promised to go to the
spring for their beverage hereafter and
cutout the "square-face."
THE BLACK HAND
AGAIN COMMENCES ITS NEFARIOUS
WORK IN BRITISH COLUMBIA.
O. B. Hume, of Revelstoke is Marked
For a Victim.-A Sketch of the
Business of Premier Nurseryman of B. O.
The Black Hand, that secret and
dreaded society of Italian anarchists,
has again appeared in British Columbia,
selecting Revelstoke and one of its
most prominent citizens for its latest
dire threats. The citizen is Mr. C. B.
Hume of C. B. Hume & Co.
The day after Mr. Hume left for Victoria, on the Big Bend wagon road delegation, a letter was received at the
office of his firm. The clerk who opened it was shocked to see that it was
from the Bleck Hand Society. The effect of the letter was a premptory
notification to Mr. Hume ' 'to place one
thousand dollars at the west pier of the
C. P. R. bridge over the Columbia
River" at that place.
To this demand was added a threat to
kill Mr. Hume if he did not comply
with the terms of the letter.
Neither the firm nor any of Mr.
Hume's friends at Revelstoke can account for this appearance of the4Black
Hand, particularly in a letter to such
a popular citizen.
A Home Industry.
Among the many nurserymen doing
business on the Pacific coast, no one is
better known to the fruit men of B. C.
than M. J. Henry, 3010 Westminster
Road, Vancouver. Mr. Henry has been
in the business for eighteen years. His.
knowledge of B. C. conditions, his wide
experience as a grower of fruit and ornamental trees, the ample facilities at his
command, and a natural aptitude for
this line of work, have all helped in the
up-building of a very extensive business.
Aside altogether from the patriotic
aspect of the case���and, other things
being equal, the "grown in B.C. brand"
should appeal to us���there are decided
advantages in procuring nursery stock
from a local concern: The trees are not
so long in shipment, nor is fumigation
necessary as in the case of imported
stock, and further, the local nurseryman relies upon your continuous support��� self interest dictates generous
treatment of his patrons.
M. J. Henry employs no traveling
salesmen. His catalogue���one of the
best nursery catalogues in America���is
sent free to all intending purchasers.
This is his silent salesman. Although
his sales extend from Dawson City to
Oregon, and from the west coast of
Vancouver Island to the Maritime provinces, this business has been developed
through advertising in the local papers
of the country. Surely this is proof���
if proof were needed���of the value of
the local paper as an advertising
medium.
Blaze at Vancouver.
A fire as lurid and fierce as any that
has raged within the city for a considerable time did damage to the extent of at least $70,000 to the Empress
Manufacturing company's building on
Homer street, Vancouver, on Tuesday
night, but unshaken by the loss the
firm have determined that within ten
days the business of the factory shall
be resumed.

Four hundred and fifty Union
Jacks go out to four hundred and fifty of the schools of the province at
the beginning of the next school
term. With each there will go a
copy of regulations drawn up by
the provincial department 'of education stating the hours when the
flag should fly. The flags have
been received at the government
buildings. The first consigment
of the school books, which also will

the next term, have been received.
Forty-two cases weighing over nine

In an editorial referring to the
tour of Premier McBride and his
���colleagues the Colonist says:
"But there is an aspect to this
iour which is possibly even more
.satisfactory than this, and it is the
demonstration afforded that we have
reached, as far as local politics are
concerned, an end of a long period
Qf political unrest and partizan bitterness. There were very many
people who questioned the desirability of dividing provincial politics
on federal lines, and it cannot be
successfully denied that there were
some reasons against such a step,
which were fully threshed out at
the time. When Mr. McBride announced his intention to form a
ministry on straight Conservative
lines, there was undoubtedly a
strong protest from many quarters,
but that it was a wise step subsequent events have fully demonstrated. It gave us settled political conditions, and only those who
are able to recall the state of politics in this province less than a decade ago can appreciate what it
means. The effect upon the business of the province, we mean now
not the public but the private bnsi-
ness, has been very pronounced,
for there is no doubt that the country was greatly injured by the continual reports that went out concerning the chaotic state of politics
and the resultant unfortunate condition of the public treasury.
"As the person who, more than
anyone else, was responsible for
the new departure in provincial
politics, Mr. McBride deserves well
of the people, and the capable manner in which he has conducted affairs during his premiership gives
him a further claim upon public
confidence. In this work he has
been admirably assisted by his colleagues, who have devoted themselves to the public welfare with
the most praiseworthy industry and
singleness of purpose."
