Poor "Civis!"   Poor Vancouver!   It's
Loo bad about you.   But, supposing tlie
lontention of "Civis" to be correct, and
■tliat the C. T. B. really has gone back
Ion Vancouver, would tbat be any great
■matter for wonder?    Let us look back
lover Vancouver's record.    For nearly n
■score of years    past    whenever    some
|wretcbed demagogue, some degraded excrescence on the body politic, some vote-
Isceking loafer, too lazy for honest work,
Relying on a glib tongue to inflame the
passions of the fnt-witted electorate, de-
Isired to climb out of tho gutter whicli

do was to -get out in the middle of the

Then nil Vancouver would hasten to ap-
Blaud him ns   a whole-souled    patriot,
■tending up for the rights of tho people
Jigninst "the tyranny of n bloated cor-
liorntion."    How grandly    the    phrase
lolls off the tongue, doesn't it?
Even in times of comparative peace,
the C. P. B. was constantly being attacked. To find a man iu the Terminal
City who would say a good word for
tue luckless corporation was rare indeed.
Yet, when anything was to be gained by
it, wiiether a subscription, or a free pass,
or a donation, how this mob of "free,"
"independent" citizens would crawl to
the company they were wont to abuse!
For serviie sycophancy alternating with
currish, snarling, whining and attempted
bullying, we know of nothing more sickening, nothing more typical of the baser
sort of mob, iu the history of Western
Cniuulian towns, than the attitude of
Vancouver towards the C. P. B. We
hold no brief for this or any other railway—we are not in the habit of holding
briefs for our servants—but we sny most
emphatically that, if the C. P. R. did
give Vancouver the go-by, no one, least
of all the Vancouyerites themselves,
would have any reason to wonder nt it.
city limits. If they were, it would not
be necessary for The Week to tell them
that this latest move on the part of the
C. P. B. is not abandonment, but expansion. It does not mean that the C. V.
It. bus no more use for Vancouver, but
it does mean that the C. P. K. requires
more than Vancouver. But for their
dense ignorance—typical of so many
Coast communities—of the province in
which tlioy live, it would not be necessary to make this explanation to Vancouver; but a study of the map, and of
certain commercial conditions and developments now forging rapidly to the front,
will make it plain to all but those so
ignorant and narrow that they must forever remain hewers of wood and drawers of water to their more intelligent fellow-citizens in the good days that are
coming to Britisli Columbia. There is
room on this coast for a greater Vaii-
couver—aye, and for half a score more
big towns as well. So cheer up, Terminal City, and dry your eyes. Nobody
is going to leave you alone in the dark
and cold, so you nedn't be afraid.

nineteen, to reflection* or to careful deduction of instructive lessons froni current events. But, perhaps, when the

Little Rift-in Liberal  Lute Widens to a Chasm—Forecast of
Inevitable Disruption—Manson's Election Assured.
Whatever dissensions may have existed in the local Liberal ranks prior to
the convention, at which Mr. Geo. Eiley
received t'he nomination, the dissidents
were certainly welded into harmony before the day of election, as witness, Geo.
Riley, M. P. But though Old and
Young Liberal Associations vied with
each other in their efforts to carry the
party t'o success on election day, they
certainly reserved to themselves the right
to criticize the actions of their memher-
elect, when they considered that such
actions were uot entirely in the interests
of this constituency, or at least, conducive to the welfare of the Liberal
party. It may be admitted' tbat this
-right' to criticize has been freely exercised, but even this, in the eyes of the

But "Civis" amd the citizens of Vancouver generally may set their minds at
rest. The Terminal City is a great city,
and she is going to be very much greater
in tbe course of the next few yenrs.
With her railways, her harbour, and the
big country bnck of ber, it cannot be
otherwise; nnd no one will be better
pleased to see it than the thinking people of Victoria, who know thc folly of
this senseless interurbnn jealousy. But,
with all her advantages, remains the sad
fact thnt, with a few notable and honourable exceptions, her citizens are ns
yet quite unable to see outside their own

bombs at him, wound his body-guard,
and enper after his royal person with
butcher knives. In England, under an
"effete monarchy," "a bloated aristocracy," and all the rest of the street-
orator's clap-trap, his visit passes off en-

joint excutives, is no excuse for the
supercilious indignation with which their
criticisms have been received by the
gentleman they elected. As a consequence, t'he banner of open revolt against
the locally nominal heads of the party
at Ottawa has been raised, and the results will be more far-reaching than
might be expected from what on the surface looks like "a tempest in a t'ea-pot."
The joint executives of the Old and
Young Liberal Associations include some
of the ablest political organizers aud
.shrewdest practical politicians in the
West, and these gentlemen, to a man,
are determined to create a new order of
things. We foresee the result, and there
can bo but one—the abolition of party
lines iu provincial politics, the absolute
severance of the local government from
affiliation and subservience to the Ot-
tnwti machine, be it Liberal or Conservative; and the first indication of this
will bo i'he election of Mr. Manson In
Alberni, not because lie is a Conservative, but because he is not a Liberal.

which it probably isn't, for what politician   ever    loved    it? Sir    Wilfrid
Laurier must enjoy the series of opcu
letcrs with which "Don" in the Toronto
Saturday Night has heen favoring him.
The final one of the series—each of
which is addressed, with ironic minuteness of detail, to the "Right Hon. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, G.O.M.G., P.C., President of the   King's   Privy   Council in
Canada" appears in  Saturday Night
of the 3rd inst. The bitter earnestness
of the concluding paragraph, it's merciless summing-up of tho results of tbe
course adopted by Sir Wilfrid, and its
gloomy nnd emphatic prophesy of what
must be the outcome of these "sunny
ways," combine to make it well worth
reproduction, even as it is well worth
the perusal of every man in Canada:
"Iu conclusion, permit me to remind
you, sir, thnt the happy possibilties of
which I have spoken in other letters appear to me burled in the grave marked
by jour perfidy to public rights. Tlie
glorious vista of a Uuit'ed Canada—a
Canada united not by ballot force or
bullets—has faded from the eyes of tens
of thousands of the best citizens of this
Dominion, who now find at the limit of
their vision a rude stone cross marking
your unwept political grave instead of
the monument we had hoped to erect to
the glorious memory of the man who
united the two races and established the
one Liberty. Before the vice-regal signature on this Autonomy Bill shall huve

the principles for which they once

i'he Hierarchy, must stand in history ns
the assassin of this once noble party, this
glorious purpose. That one so attractive
in face and fancy, so brave in figure nnd

immense parliamentary majority behind
him, should make such un incredible, unpatriotic and fateful mistake ns you have

Tho cartoon appearing in The Week
on the 3rd instant, nnd the accompanying comment with reference to the wL.de-
sale and unnecessary destruction of the
trees to which Victoria owes so much of
her attractiveness, hnve, we are glad to
note, had due effect in stirring up public
interest to an extent which will, it may
be trusted, result in the checking of much
wanton tree-felling throughout the city
before it is too late. The matter has
been actively taken up by I be Victoria

A fence, fourteen feet in height, is being erected round the grounds on which
the C. P. R. hotel is to be built. This is
another example of the callous indifference of a bloated corporation to the
rights of the people. What is our Rubberneck Brigade to do—that vast aggregation of Victorians who toil not, neither
do they spin, and yet have plenty to eat
and wear, aud lots of time to stand
around and criticise their fellow citizens
who are foolish enough to work for a
living? It makes one's blood boil to
Ihink of these retimed, intelligent, scholarly men being deprived of their daily

The opening of the Lake Beautiful-
Coquitlam tunnel last Saturday was,
perhaps, a far more important event ln
the results which are likely to follow
than most of those present at the ceremony had any idea of. It marks, we
believe, the commencement of a new
order of things, which will eventually go
far towards revolutionizing industrial
conditions in British Columbia. This
Province, especially in the Coast districts,
has enormous facilities for water power,
needing only experience, machinery and
the right men to harness tbem for the
use of man. Mr. Buntzen and the Vancouver Power Company have made the
first step in this direction on the Provincial seaboard, and made it worthily.
Their example will be quickly followed.
The Novoe Vremya, St. Petersburg
semi-official journal, is out with a remarkable editorial deprecating the optimism, among diplomats at the present
moment with regard to peace, which it
declares to be impossible unless Japan
recognizes Russia's Asiatic claims, and
the fact that she (Russia) must spread
eastward in order, says the Novoe
Vremya, "to reach her natural boundary
—warm water." Now, wouldn't that
surprise you? Warm water! What on
earth does Russia want with more warm
water? Has she not, for the past eighteen months, been in the hottest kind of
warm water?
The Colonist is either very impolite, or
it has no sense of humour. This is the
way it describes the qualifications for
the popular suffrage possessed by Mr. J.
F. Bledsoe, endorsed by Alberni Liberals
as their standard-bearer in the coming
bye-election; "He (Mr. Bledsoe) is a
native of Kentucky, and has had a varied and adventurous career," remarks
our worthy morning contemporary, "being successively a cowboy, a lecturer, a
celebrated detective, a chemist, a student of the past civilizations of ancient
Mexico, a journalist, poet, litterateur
and student"
How very accomplished! What an excellent running mate he would make in
the local House for John Oliver, J. A.
Macdonald, Stuart Henderson and the
rest. Did we hear anybody whisper,
"Jack-of-all-trades, and master of none?"
But perhaps that is why he is going into
politics. Anyhow, the witty Colonist has
failed to credit him with one trifling, but
very necessary, qualification—has this
Kentucky paragon ever become a British subject?
He was born in Old Kentucky
Where the meadow-grass is bine,
Where they guzzle Bourbon whisky,
And shoot each other, too.
He was bred in Old Kentucky,
And the Grits are mighty lucky
To elect a man like Bledsoe—if they do!

With this object In view, the board would
respectfully suggest the appoiutmeut (uu-
clei' suo-sectious lib aud lltla of section 10,
Municipal Clauses Act) of three specially
nuuiincd honorary commissioners lone lo

aud park, uud without whose suucuou no
trees ou tbe public property or adjacent
uereio should be destroyed or damaged, or
auy of the natural beauties and attractions

I'he board feel that such ruthless destruction of trees as has taken place lu the past,
uud is continually occurring along our residential streets, Is a serious menace to the
natural beauty of the city, and that the
practice should be checked aud placed under competent control.
The board feel that were the park placed
under the direction of commissioners, as
suggested, a plan of steady improvement
could be adopted and followed up from
year to year. Under the present system, no
continuous plan of improvement can be followed, us the governing body of ihe park
Is altered each year. Vancouver park has

reason why our park should uot be improved and conserved under competent
authority iu a continuous way, eveu though

By reference to the Municipal Act ot Ontario (section 674, copy of which is enclosed), it will be seen that the beautifying
of public places, squares and streets in
cities is encouraged by allowance or compensation, (.ud that those attractions that
do exist are judiciously protected; and the
board of tbis association would therefore
suggest that such commissioners as they
propose should be clothed with similar
powers to these provided In the Ontario
Municipal Act referred to.

The Good Book tells us to "Seek peace
and ensue it," and no doubt peace is an
excellent thing, if it can be secured on
fair terms. But while, for humanity's
sake, it is very excellent to see some
prospect ahead of the conclusion of hostilities in the Far East, it is to be hoped
that the Japanese will remember that
the Russian has always been more deadly in the field of so-called diplomacy
than in that of war. In public or private life, the oath that will bind a Russian has not yet been invented, and in
the chancelleries of Europe the diplomats of Holy Russia have nn evil eminence as disciples of Ananias. As one
well-known writer feelingly puts it,
"They can say the thing that is not with
un almost religious fervour."
Perhaps Kipling's poem, with the title
of which we head these remarks, hits
off the Russian characteristics better
than columns of prose. Its explicit |
warning, "Make ye no truce with Adam-
Had, the bear that walks like a man,"
would seem particularly adapted for tlie
perusal of Japan at the present juncture.
The final words of caution fit the case
so exactly that we are tempted to quote

(PART   II.)
Among   the   "High   Grade  Mines"—A
Sketch of the City of Greenwood
and the Towns of Midway
and Eliolt.
(liy Percy F. Godenrath, Travelling Correspondent of The Week.)
Tenacity! Enterprise) Bound up in
these words is the history of the founding and subsequent up-growth of the city
of Greenwood—the financial, commercial und mining centre of the "Boundless
Boundary." Ten years ago tins coining
full the site thai now marks Greenwood
was thickly covered by n forest growth
of tamarack, bull-pine nnd poplar with
dark uinrslies caused by the overflow of
Boundary creek as it made its tortuous
way through the heart of the mountain

The yenr following George Arthur
Rendell nnd Ralph Smailes, who eon-
ducted a trading post at Boundary Falls,
amalgamated their business with Mr.
Wood; nnd, with the uplifting of the
bond on the Mother Lode mine in Dead-
wood en nip. by New York capitalists—n
momentous eveut for the new camp—n
real impetus wns given tlio outside
world, already stirred by the boom nt
Rossland, to participate in the possibilities of the eniliyro city and the truly re-
inni-knble mineralized country thai backed it. That snme yenr C Scott Galloway nlso became Interested in the town-
site. From that time on the town grew
npnee; roads to the numerous nearby
enmps were built mainly by Inenl enterprise, nnd the trade thereof swelled the
business of the merchants. In August.
1807, tho place had assumed such pro
portions thnt it wns Incorporated, and its
people took over the responsibilities of
self-government. Gradually the forest
wns cleared off; Boundary Creek

of $25,000; streets graded and miles of

became modernized. Then followed the
completion of the Columbia & Western

advent of the "steam horse" Duncan

If Greenwood ever experienced the
sensation of a "boom" it was during
LS99-1900. Certainly good times reached a high-water level. People Hocked
in; real estate and mineral claims
changed hands daily; a smelter was Hearing completion and scores of business
blocks and hotels were going up. Then
followed the inevitable depression caused
through over-doing iniugs. Many predicted that the bottom uad dropped out
altogether, and, so reasoning, departed
tor new fields of effort to again flirt with
Dame Fortune. The rest, who perchance had sunk tlffcir little all, either
could uot, or, realizing ihat time only
was needed to bring order out of the
temporary chaos, stuck, aud some—won
±he past two years have wrought a
wonderful change iu the fortunes of several of the tenacious ones. The opening
up by local money of the "high grade"
prospects (overlooked lor years iu the
scramble to obtain big "low grade" ore
bodies) has resulted in much needed outside capital again coining to the front,
and owners have been eutibled to sell
lor cusn or bond at good ligures. Today Greenwood is not the city of the
-years of plenty," with streets alive with
huppy-goducky prospectors, speculators
and the usual crowd thut follows iu the
ivake ot every mining excitement, and
gives it a truly barletjuiu coloring, instead, it strikes the casual visitor as iu-
icrnaliy dull, relieved perhaps by the eoli-
tiiiunl Snl'iek or tool-toot ol a passing ore
train and the rumble of powder blasts
that come up from the earth and echo
aud re-echo through the valley. Look
deeper; and one Icarus another story.
\\ ild speculation has ceased—so too has
the merry tinkle of the roulette wheel;
more sober business methods are in
vogue. All down the line—banker, merchant, miner, clerk, physician uud even
padre arc investing their dollars in "high
grade" prospects and mines. The civic
finances are in an excellent condition,
and substantial reductious have been
made on the bunded indebtedness.
Immediately surrounding the city, go
where you will, every point of the compass has its scene of mining activity within nn hour's wnlk of the post ollice.
Again, on n larger scale, if a circle were
described with Greenwood for its centre
nnd a radius of about eight miles, the
rii-ciiiiil'ereiice would pass tiirough or include nl least a dozen separate mining
camps, Within the first mile nre working a score of properties, and it is this
new, ever expanding pay roll of the "high
grade" mines that local "capitalists"
have made Unit is vitalizing, nud bodes
so much for the future prosperity of the
low ii. To this must be added the sub-
slautial pay rolls at Ihe smelters of the
British Columbia Copper Company nnd
the Montreal & Boston Cons. JI. & S.
Company, directly tributary, together
with the big mines of Deadwood camp.
Of its business men, let nie tell what
a well-known drummer of u Victoria
nouse said to nie in sizing up the present
commercial situation: "Wholesalers have
long recognized the superior class of
business men thnt the city possesses, fnr
above the average of new camps. For
this reason Greenwood has had practically no failures in its commercial life. In
other interior mining camps the number
that have gone under—well let's forget
it. Business here is good." Yes, it is
not flattery to add that Greenwood's
business men are wideawake and enterprising, nnd it is to this fact that the
city owes much of its progress and stability. At a glance the many business
blocks, hotels, churches, civic nnd provincial buildings nnd numerous private
residences—the ensemble of the town as
it were, would hardly he credited by a
stranger, to the growth of less than a
decade of years. Few places there are
in the province, with double the age,
equal to the "Commercial Metropolis of
the Boundary."
In my previous introductory article on
the Boundary an outline was given of the
big low grade copper-gold mines, with
their miles of under ground workings
and their already immense output, which
promises this yenr to aggregate in   the
nre found in the hornblende granites and
altered sedimentary rocks.
Starting at the northern boundary the
claims lie on each side of Boundary
Creek, and extend a mile beyond the
city. Whnt is locally culled the Alphabetical group, at one time consisting of
12 claims owned by ihe Boundary Creek
M. <fc M. Company, now defunct, has
been split up, An American syndicate
hns bonded some of the chums, including
the Spokane, und started prospecting. On
the Gold Bug, formerly one of the group,
a 300-foot crosscut tunnel is being driven
by contract, which is now iu over 200
feet. In early days several carloads of
rich silver and gold quartz ore were shipped to the smelter, nud the present owners nre justified in tlle belief thnt with
the striking of the vein nt depth the mine
will yield us prolifically as ever.
The Boundury-Elkhorn Mining Compnny, Ltd., recently incorporated and
controlled by Philip McDonald and Jas.
Sutherland, the original owners of tlie
Elkhoru group, is expected to resume development at once. Nearly 500 feet of
work—shaft, tunnel nnd drift—has been
done on the property in the last two
years, and ore to the value of $75,000
hns been taken therefrom. The principal
development is a 142-foot incline shaft,
following the vein. It is said that the
richest silver ore ever discovered iu British Columbia came from this mine. The
ore consists of massive native silver,
ruby silver, antimoninl silver, galena,
grey copper, and iron aud copper pyrites
in a quartz gaugue. Return of shipments gave $102.58, $110.02 and $123.48
respectively per ton. The vein is from 0
to 12 inches in width.
The Providence is owned by a compauy
composed of Chicago nud local people.
A week ago 35 men were put to work
drifting north and south on the lead at
the 400-foot level, and drifting nnd stop-
iug iu the south tunnel ou the 300-foot
level. The mine is well developed, und
hns at different periods returned handsome dividends to the shareholders, lt
is intended by the management to instill
an air compressor of 7 to 10 drills capacity immediately. The shaft is to be
continued to the 500-foot level. Shipments, too, will De resumed.
Swinging eastward, adjoining the Providence, is the Fremont, owned by the
Greenwood-Fremont Mines, Ltd., and
financed hy Grand Forks and local people. There are three veins opened,
carrying galena, assnying $78 in gold
and silver. Two prospect shafts nre down

the American exhibit at the Pnris exposition; Samuel K. Morton, jr., vice-president of the Manufacturers' Bank of Chicago; Edward Ford Johnsou, insurance
broker, and Richard Armstrong, formerly of Grand Forks, aud now residing
in the "Wiudy City." Tbe new owners
have a crew of 14 men developing three
veiu. The general average value of the
ure is $120, though samples from the No.
1 vein gave returns of $078 per ton.
Small shipments of selected ore gave
values of $200. Ore from all the veins
is of shipping churacter. The company
will later ou install a compressor plant
and develop the mine on a large scale.
The Skylark is au instance of what
can be accomplished here with a little
capital aud intelligent effort. For years
it was the banner claim of Skylark
camp, lt wus located July, 1893, and
bonded to the Spokuue oi Great Northern Company, who went to work shortly afterwards, aud during the winter of
1803-4 shipped auout 100 tons to the
smelters across tlie line. The ore returns gave 150 to 300 ounces in silver
aud $15 to $20 in gold. For u time it
laid idle. Again, in 1897 auother rich
shipment was sent to u Montana smelter. Then development wus suspeuded.
Last fall a syndicate of Phoenix people
secured a boud for $30,000. The owners
would probably have sold for a far less
amount on a cash hasis, and perhaps at
the time, firmly believing that the mine
was gutted of its rich ore, softly laughed
up their sleeves. Work started October
1st. The new owners subscribed less than
$2,000 to commence operations. In one
month alone over $7,000 was received
for ore returns from the smelter. The
terms of the bond, $1,000 per month,
have been carried out, and the mine lias
feet, with drifts at the 30 nu.,1 100-foot
levels. The property has shipped 26
tons. First class ore averages $113, and
the second $28 per ton. Active development is beiug prosecuted.
Local and North Dakota capital is interested in the bouil on the E. P. U., under the management of Duucau Mcintosh. Quite a force is at present employed. A shaft is down over 150 feet, and
nearly 1,000 feet of drifting lias been
done ou the lend, which averages a good
eight inches.
Adjoining the E. P. U., on the enst, is
the Bay, owned by Fuller & Hall. Eight
men are at work sinking a 100-foot shaft
and drifting on the veiu. It is said of
this property that it lias the reputation
of shipping the best average two ears
of ore, of all grades, taken from wall
lo wall, and running $119.55 per ton. The
veiu measures Irom 8 to 32 inches of
quart!!. The ore house is now full, and
the owners are seeking assistance from
the government to provide better truns-
pontation facilities to get their ore to
Phoenix people have a boud on the
Mavis, owned by E. T. Wickmire. Sinking and driftiug is in progress, aud from
7 to 10 tons of ore is ready for siiipmeut.
The Tip Top is under boud to the Skylark Development company. The Twiu
Trilby aud the Gold Finch have small
crews, and are each under bond to local
Six men are developing the Barbara,
adjoining the Gold Finch. A Chicago
syndicate, represented by Alex. Miller,
owns the claim. A shaft is down ou the
vein 190 feet, with nearly 200 feet of
crosscuts and drifts. Open cuts and
trenching prove the continuity of the
vein for several hundred feet, with
values from $50 to $00, although occasionally bunches of ore are run into
carrying the values up to $150 per ton,
chiefly in gold. There are 10 to 15 tons
of ore ou the dump, and shipments will
of $98 per ton.   Nine men are employed.
The Capital Prize, also south of the
town, is owned by Sydney M. Johnson.
West of the city are the Bonnie Bell.
Highland Queen, Mountain Queen .and
Mountain View. Tho Highland Queen
is under bond to the Foulds Brothers
and Mr. Penny, who nre driving a prospect tunnel to tap. the ore nt a depth of
io feet. Any day the vein may be en-
•onutered. Charles Erliqli, W. T. Smith
ind J. C. Haas have just bonded the
Mountain Queen.
Two and a half miles south of the city
is Smith's camp. The Greenwood-Republic Gold Mines, Ltd.. owns the Republic, Lnst Chance, Nonsuch nnd Hidden Treasure, on which extensive work
has been carried on for the past several
years. The Nonsuch was the first quartz
location in this section nf the Boundary,
and wns located by W. T. Smith in 1880.
Mr. Smith is the manager of the compnny. The ore here is a sulphide, carrying values in gold, copper and silver,
running from $11 to $21 in carload shipments. The principal work is heing
prosecuted on the Nonsuch, where'the
tunnel is in over 400 feet on the vein.
The tunnel is to be continued until the
Last Chance shaft (now down 100 feet)
is.reached,'about 1,000 feet in all. At
the point of connection, where an upraise will be made to meet the shaft, it
is figured that 400 feet of stopiug ground
will be had. The completion of the long
tunnel and connection will allow much
cheaper means of mining. E. J. Roberts
and E. L. Tait, of Spokane, and W. T.
Smith are the principal shareholders.
A short distance from the Republic
group is the Golconda group, owued by
Eastern Townships people, headed by
Hon. George E. Foster and Rufus Pope.
The ore is an arsenical iron, carrying
principally gold values, from $14 to $42
per ton. A 000-foot tunnel is being driven
lo strike the veiu at a depth of 375 feet,
and as three feet per day is being made,
Mr. Haas, the manager, is confident that
the ore will be reached before the end
of the present month. The tuuuel is in
over 500 feet.
The Town of Midway.
Nine miles beyond Greenwood aud the
terminus of the Columbia & Western
railway is reached. Here one enters
again the broad valley of tbe Kettle
river as it sweeps iu from the west to
lake a bend through Ferry county, state
of Washington, to re-enter tlie provinee
below Grand Forks. One gathers from |
tlie records tbat Midway is entitled to the
distinction of being the oldest town in
the Boundary. The acreage ou which
the town was laid out was acquired by
Capt. R. C. Adams, of Montreal, in 1893.
He first called the place Eholts, but inter
changed the naiiie \o Midway. The Midway Townsite Company acquired 040
ucres. of which 320 was laid out in half,
one, two, five and teu acre plots, nud the

the Grent Northern railway iuto the
Similkameen, the citizens entertain great
hopes that Jim Hill will this year build
into the town, ns the grade from Curlew
to Midway is nlready constructed nud
ready for the laying of steel. Then, too,
there is good reason to believe that the
C. P. R. will continue westward. The
town is nlso the proposed terminus of the
Midway & Vernon railway, and a deal
is now on the tapis for New York capital to construct this road, which will
open up the West Fork country.
As a smelter centre, Midway has much
to commend it. for here ample water is
to be had as well as all the room needed
for sing dumps. While it is a iitle premature to give out the facts, it is well

The Helen, too, is owned by Chicago
and local men, represented by Alex.
Miner. The vein has an average width
of 12 inches, and is very massive nud
heavy. The shaft is down 100 feet, nnd
there is over 200 feet of drifting nnd
crosscuts at various levels. Three lends
exist, which have been opened by cuts
mi the surface. In the early history of
the mine some exceptionally high values
were obtained from ore shipments. Recent sine 11 test shipments gave returns
lots and blocks. The company expended
$14,000 in constructing an irrigation
ditch, bringing the water from Boundary
creek, and as the soil is adapted to the
raising of garden truck and fruit trees,
quite a few of the acre tracts were
qiqckly disposed of. For the present the
trade of the town is principally derived
from the agricultural community surrounding it. Though mineral lias been
discovered in the nearby hills, it was
never exploited sufficiently to prove its
known that should the Great Northern
enter the town, at least one big smelter
is assured. The prospects of further railroad construction this yenr are bright,
and the citizens of Boundary's pioneer
town have every reason to look forward
to the future. It is nn ideal spot for a
residence, the soil is fertile nnd the climate equable, The Kettle river furnishes abundant opportunities for the
angler, and the broad fields that lie up
the valley and the brush covered side
hills, are fairly stocked with feathered

There was a   meeting   at   the local
chapel, called by fhe minister, to discuss 't
the question of the repair of the building, which had heen allowed to get into J
a bad state.    Great hopes were enter-
taind of the generosity of Brother Wfcg-
topp, a local pork butcher, but some disappointment was felt,   when   he   only
promised   two   pounds.     During   the
prayer which followed the proceedings,
a piece of plaster became detached from |
t'he ceiling and fell on to Brother Wag-
topp's head, with a   soft   thud.   More 1
frightened than hurt, that worthy jump- j
ed up and   exclaimed,   "Jeursalem! I'll 1
give five pounds."   The pastor, however, I
only paused in    the   devotions to addj
earnestly   to   the   prayer:   "Hit   himl
again, Lord,    hit   him again."—Tatler.j

Lace and Lingerie Headgear.
Hats, Holidays and Housework—Tables and Trimmings—Salad
Dressing and Room Dressing.
by "b'aSette."
Dear Madge:—I promised you a longer
letter this week so I must endeavor t'o
find a topic that you like; knowing as I
do what a butterfly of fashion you are
I am going to begin by describing the
much worn, lingerie hat, which has
turned the millinery world t'opsy turvy
this season.
Instead of tlie ubiquitous flopping hat
of a year ago, all of drooping ruffles and
lace and embroidery, are hats for the
most part quite definitely made up on
wire frames stretched out' until there
would be almost a stiff straight effect
were it not for the narrow frills of lace
which face the brim or edge of it, or the
soft pleatings which trim it.
From the stiff sailor shapes, made of
embroidered linen, line and sheer as a
handkerchief, with the bow at tho side
made of more of the embroidered linen,
up to the hat nearest last season's style,
but' smaller made of sheer Swiss embroidery and a huge bow of soft ribbon,
there is a world of difference between
the styles of the two years.
Tho stretching out instead of shirring
up ou wire frames is the most marked
change; and next to if tlie difference in
size, everything in the hat line bingmuch
smaller this year. Here and there you
se a huge affair, but it is incongruous-
out of date.
Embroidery is used more than lace for
the actual making; but lace is used a
great deal, too, for a little soft breaking
of hard lines.
There is more latitude as to trimming,
too. Feathers, which were tabooed for
the airy creations of last year have
proved the very thing the new hats need.
And, in feathers, t'he exquisite idea thnt
Paris advanced a couple of months ago
has been realizd—two colors in a single
plume; not shaded, but pale enough in
shade to make the most delicate of contrasts. On white hats, of course, white
feathers are preferred.
But' the newest of all lingerie hats is
that of the pale shade of blue or pink,
usually of both—tlie foundation of one
color embroidered in motifs or in an all
over design in the contrasting color, with
perhaps a bow of ribbon to emphasize
the color scheme; or one of those new
plumes—pale blue with fhe edges of the
palest tint of pink all the way round.
Besides feathers, the use of flowers
upon lingerie hats, is new and wreath-
like trimmings of tiny June roses and
forget-me-nots nestle against a snowy
background, or a bunch of little daisies
is perched up under a pale blue brim.
Tlie colored hats—if so delicate a tint
can be called color—are exceptions.
Most lingerie hats are white; but they
are might'}- pretty exceptions, and make
the sweetest setting for a white dress,
they follow lingerie styles even more
than actual lingerie styles.
Stretching the embroidery on the light
frames shows it' off much more sharply,
so that prettier and prettier cmbrodier-
ies are in demand all the time—sheer
stuffs being embroidered in eyelet
designs being most popular of all.
Linen—a heavier weight than handkerchief linen—with bold open designs
make up a stunning hut, with rows and
rows of tiny frills for a brim facing instead of stiff linens.
Some of the hats which properly belong to the lingerie clnss aren't lingerie
at all, except in treatment. Horsehair
—the lightest silkiest kind and leghorns
(by the wny leghorns are very good) are
trimmed with narrow lace frills a.iu
with the embroidery inserts and finished
with a bit of color in the shape of roses,
or a plume.
But even toques—severe and all as
they are-^have an adorable lingerie
representative, which bows to file required tilt of the season. The top is
flat, the narrowest of vnleneicnues makes
up the deep brims, and at tlie back are
massed roses shaded from light to dark
I ended my letter of last' week with
a perfect sermon and your remark about
the trials of housekeeping almost provokes me to another one quite ns severe.
Madge the matter of fact is this that'
you to do too much, you try to make the
days' work enough for six, I think there
is something   bewilderingly paradoxical
I11 the fnct that' the more labor-saving
devices there are placed upon the market
the busier we mortals seem to be. 1 suppose it is owing to the fact that we have
to give all our spare time to looking
after the devices. I, of course, sympathize with you, having one nmid-of-all-
work; but don't you think, denr, that we
might not be such slaves to detail? I
wonder if tliere is this same restless
feeling all over the world, or only you
and I Madge who try to do more, than
we ought; 1 should thing so judging from
the heads of households I meet sometimes in town.
Tlie seductive cause of self-imposed
slavery mny be traced to the market'
place, with its alluring labyrinths of
variety. Everywhere we encounter the
temptation to indulge in superfluities. It
is very seldom you see a woman positive
enough t'o resist carrying home from her
trip to town, something she does not
want, or at least would be better without. I think you ought to rest for a
couple of months, and that is why, in
my last letter, I suggested your camping
this summer; you know "cherie" when
you get away from home for a few
months, you will find that you will be
much more able to manage your house
when you get back, and with your husband away I am afraid I ennnot see any
reason for you to stay iu that' hot, dusty
town all summer. I hope to be able to
join you in August, then just think of
the idleness we will indulge in. I am
afraid at tlie end of the summer we will
be gray if we go on in our present foolish way. I agree with one poor little
woman who was tired out witli battling
with 'genteel' poverty, and said to me
one day: "Let me have restful peace,
let nie have harmony at any cost. Life
is ugly, deformed, and not worth liviug
outside the realm of this heavenly
twain." But there, enough of this, I
will turn you to a brighter side of our
life for there is so much to be enjoyed,
and the question is how to get' the most
of it.
Madge, I have been extravagant
again this week, see how readily I own
up to it, but I am sure even you would
not have been able to scold, when you
saw the temptations AVeiler Bros, are
holding out' in the wny of table accessaries. Out glass, desert dishes, oil
bottles, bon-bon dishes and water bottles,
whicli absolutely dazzle you, and last',
but uot by any means ienst—vases—it
was here I was completely carried
away, so I know you will forgive me,
knowing my "penchant" for decorations
especially fable. They hnve some of
those dear old-fashioned Epergnes in
opalescent shades, they always remind
me of dear old ladies with black silk
dresses and white lnce, I suppose becnuse
I can just remember seeing thoni when n
very small girl; these are very easy to
arrange, nnd are very pretty. I also saw
some fern dishes whicli quite won my
heart in the shape of tulips, with separate linings. You know "cherie" I
always look first lit the decorations of a
room, it means such n lot to nny room,
no matter how beautiful the furniture,
and to decorate you must have vases to
suit your flowers. I have sets for the
table which I have collected from time to
time, but still the new shapes coming iu
all tbe time tempt nie most terribly. I
was asked the other day what' was my
favorite color scheme for table decorations. I think it is pink, really the
question is a hard one to decide. At n
supper we went to last week, the table
was done in fhe palest of pink nnd
mauve, sweet peas and tulle of the two
shades to mutch, the old-fashioned
epergne I spoke of was the centerpiece,
nnd nt tlie four corners were suinll vases
to match. With these flowers maidenhair fern wns used; and with the pale
pink shaded light! this dainty table made
onethink of fairyland, and was most admired; altogether I think this supper
wns one of the jolliest I have been to
for a long time, everything wns so perfectly done. I do envy people who have
tho knack of simply making people
enjoy themselves. I nm wandering off
my subject of tables again, and I hnve
seen so many pretty ones lately I must
give you some more of the descriptions,
one especially was douo in yellow Ice
land poppies shaded from dark to light,
these were arranged in basket vases and
yellow ribbon;   these dainty little vases
were a great novelty, I had never seen
iiieiu before, they were of amber glass,
tlie centre one   being   bigger than the
others.    From the chandelier was suspended an ordinary flower   basket filled
with poppies and wild grass, tied with
a huge bow of soft yellow ribbon, tlie
ends of which were brought to the corners of the table and tied in two smaller
bows, you can't imagiue how pretty this
wus hy my    description,   which    1 am
afraid can hardly describe anything so
artistic.    What a lot   of   individuality
eau be displayed in decorating, and it is
such interesting work.   Chiffon,   ribbon
and t'ulle are used a great deal for tables,
and tire sometimes of a contrasting shade
to the flowers.   Talking   of   tables reminds me of your repealed request for
some salad receipe. For ordinary dossing
I think the following is one of the best
1 have used:   Put into a basin   a tea-
spoouful each of sugar and mustard, add
half a teaspoonful ench of pepper and
salt, two tablespooufuls salad oil, stirred
iu drop by drop, then two teaspoonfuls
of vinegar, lastly add four   tablespooufuls thiu cream, which must be put in
slowly or it will   curdle,   this dressing
will keep a week or more hi a cool place.
For tomator, pea, beetroot  and   celery
salad I use the rich mayonnaise dressing
us it is thicker.   This is   made   as follows:   Beat the raw yolks of four eggs,
add a tablespoonful each of salt, sugar,
dry mustard and a dash of cayenne, to
this add very slowly half a cup of the
best salad oil,   drop   by drop; this, if
rightly done will   be   quite   waxy aud
Thick, then add half   a   cup of vinegar
aud the beaten whites of the eggs, aud
cook as for custard.   This is a most excellent dressing, which I have used for
I have beeu unusually busy this week,
Madge, and I am quite proud of the result; I have been "doing up" the room
for the cousin 1 am expecting to visit
mo t'his summer. The wall paper, you
know, was green, and I have bad the
woodwork and Door stained a darker
green, and the rug, Madge, is a most
lovely akbar art square in shades of
green, the curtains and hangings are of
art green muslin fastened with pale pink
bows, with little white outside curtains;
i'he dressing table, which by the way is
a most substantial packing case, is
padded and draped with muslin to match
the curtains, and has little shelves for
boots, etc. I have had a box made for
her dresses, which is about five feet loug
uud uot too deep, and it just fits into the
window alcove. I have this upholstered
in green denim, and with a few cushions
covered with white muslin finishes a
most "comfy" little room, the bed and
toilet coverts are, of course, white. I
a in looking forward to her arrival;
which I hope will be early (his week, I
have a nice little surprise for her; remembering her fondness for music I got
iier one of those lovely mandolins from
Fletcher's, and I hope she will take advantage of the liberal offer that enterprising firm are making. Fancy, Madge,
with every mandolin, guitar or banjo
l hey are offering ten lessons from the
best' teacher in Victorin free of charge.
Farewell for this week, Madge.   I am
oil to a brilliant   society   function this
afternoon, and next week will promise
you some more summer receipts.

From the plane where once he stood,

At doing something good,
Don't cover him with praises-

When you nnd a wife that's loving,
A husband that Is true,
Then remark thnt "turtle-dovlng"
Seems quite absurd to you;
Devote your time to sneering
About the "good home folk";
At every word endearing,
When at last you cross the border—
For cross It all men must—
You'll nnd the Knocker's order
With little pains, I trust,
Go down through thorn nnd thicket
And mud nnd slimy rock,
