The Provincial Mineralogist is Arranging for  a British Columbia Representation.  Mr. William FleetcRobertson, provincial mineralogist, has been deputed by  the Hon'. J. Fred. Hume, minister of  mines, to look after the proper representation of British Columbia's mineral  wealth at the Paris Exposition. The  minister' could hardly have chosen a  better man for the task. Mr. Robertson  will g-o up the Coast in a few days to  obt;i:n specimens, and will then leave  fir Vie Interior to get samples of Ross-  lauu, Nelson, Ymir, Slocan, and East  Kootenay ores.  It must not be supposed that the  provincial mineralogist is confining  his attention to ore samples. He stated  yesterday to the News-Advertiser that  he had been to see sawmill men regarding- 7,000 feet of choice lumber for the  interior of the. Colonial Building' at  Paris. It will be fitted up at Ottawa.  Pie said :���  ' " We.lhave managed to get the Paris  Exhibition Commission to take British  Columbia lumber for the interior fitting's of the exhibition buildings. This  is entirely separate from forestry exhibit ; it is simply for use in the inside.  The Hastings Mill did not have quite  the particular stock that it thought  was good enoug-h, so we have managed  to get a couple of weeks extra time and  the mill will provide the 'stuff for us,  for which the Provincial Government  will pay."  "Yon will go up the Coast shortly? "  "Yes. I have made arrangements  here for'building-stones to be cut and  prepared by Mr. Bradbury. He will  prepare them all of a uniform description. 'Everybody is meeting- us very  fairly, and none are trying to make  any profit. As far as I have gone,  every quarry man is turning in his  stone,'and we are having- it cut the  uniform shape.";"  Mr. Robertson also stated that the  Canadian Pacific Railway company was  giving-,a very cheap freight rate for all  stuff for the Paris Exhibition.,���News-  Advertiser.  whose industrious able-bodied members  earn a fairly comfortable livelihood for  themselves and those dependent upon  them, than for a.country to claim at its  social apex a number of millionaires,  or even multi-millionaires, with a proletariat at the foot which has a hard  struggle to earn a livelihood under civilized conditions. The inevitable outcome of such inequality is serious social unrest which, sooner or later, in a  self-governing drtro~ratic community  causes the up'ris;; i.f dangerous movements in the direction of social revolution.  We are fortunately not threatened  immediately by any such danger, but  in viewof such a possibility of the future, would regard with some natural  apprehension organized efforts to bring  into our labor market any large numbers of the cheapest workers in the  world.  It is possible of course���and we hope  this may prove to.be. the case���that the  several hundred Italians who are stated  by the Witness to be arriving in Montreal daily en route for British Columbia, may really be men who are making, via Vancouver, for Hawaii, into  whose island plantations a large importation of Italian workers is about to  be introduced.���News-Advertiser.

Mr. Mulock has introduced''the bill to  further amend the postoffice act. In  explanation of the measure he said that  the first section proposes to extend the  privileges now enjoyed of enclosing  accounts and circulars in copies of  newspapers sent to regular subscribers,  so that similar documents may be enclosed in -sample copies" sent to those  who are not subscribers. The second  section makes eligible, for the position  of superintendent of railway mail service, clerks who have been ten years in  the railway mail service, whether in  the office or on the trains, or both. At  present only those who have been ten  years on the trains are eligible, which  provision rather lessens the choice, as  many railway mail clerks who are  brought into the office as assistants to  the superintendent, are thereby rendered ineligible under the existing regulations for promotion. The third section provides for the establishment of  a late fee for mailable matter, mailed  after regular hours for closing the  mails, by which to enable the postoffice  to forward to the trains matter that  would ordinarily have to await the next  train. This system is in force in Great  Britain. The last provision enables  the department to indemnify and make  indemnity with respect to lost registered mail matter, to the extent of S25,  or whatever less sum is actually lost,  and to charge fees for an insurance  fund from which to make good the loss  to the department. Mr. Mulock also  submitted a return of the appointments  made at the Toronto postoffice, and  copies of correspondence and papers  connected with the contract with the  British American Bank Note company  respecting the printing of stamps.

WAR   EAGLE   INQUEST.  The Jury Say that the Men did not Use Proper  Care in the mine.  The further sitting of the jury  summoned to enquire into the recent  accident at the War Eagle mine,   whereby  four miners lost their lives, commenced  yesterday at 2 p.m.    A. C. Gait appeared on behalf of the company.,, Provincial Inspector of Mines Macgregdr, who  had viewed the scene   of the disaster  during the morning, was  present and  put several questions to the witnesses.  John B.   Hastings,   superintendent of  the War Eagle mine, was in attendance  but was not asked to give any evidence.  Charles Coulsori, the sole survivor of  the shift at work, was the first witness.  Beyond having his arm in a sling and  complaining of deafness,  the  witness  seems to have completely   recovered.  He told of the explosion and what happened just before and what he did  afterwards.   He said that if the dirt had  been cleared, from the face of the drift  , the men at work might have seen  the  hole and the accident might have been  avoided.    He  understood  that it was  the duty of the on coming shift to clean  away the muck for their'owh protection  and he could not say why this was  not  done. The cause of the accident was the  running of -the drill  into the missed  hole Lree and Griffin had drilled the fatal  hole and the 11 o'clock shift on Wednes-  dayonight had fired  it.  Dr. Angus Kenning testified as to  the services he rendered at the time of  the accident and to the death  of the  'four''men.'XaXOOIav';"' '��������� ������   ������' .���'������..'  John Fitzwilliams, general foreman  at the Wari'Eagle,' said he at once went  to the scene of the accident when informed about'it. The witness: said: that  the men's own carelesness caused the  explosion. They should have examined  the face of the drift before commencing  work, to see if there were any missed  holes. It is customary among miners  for the outgoing shift to report to the  incoming one if there is a missed shot.  Part of the powder in question had exploded leaving.some still remaining in  the hole.,..The witness said that he  knew of only one way to avoid the reoccurrence of such accidents, and v.that  was for the men to use proper care and  inspection before proceeding with their  drilling.   '  Inspector,Macgregor asked the witness several questions, but 'elicited  nothing that   had   hot   alreadj'   been  ;  touched  on.  ''.���..���;;���;.;,-:::   .;.y.v..-.  As the jury intimated that they did  hot require any further evidence the  coroner gave the case to them on the  conclusion of Fitzwilliams' testimony  and in about 30 minutes they returned  with the following verdict:      , .  We, the .undersigned jury summoned  to enquire'into the" cause of'the deaths  of Daniel! Green',, Charles Sturgess,  Charles Lee and Michaal Griffin; after  viewing the bodies and the spot where  the deceased were at work when they  received the fatal injuries, and,carefully listened to and reviewing the evidence find that the aforesaid men lost their  lives from being' struck with rock  thrown out by an explosion, said explosion being caused by a drill (operated  by two of the deceased) striking powder  which had missed fire in what is called  a "cut hole" in the face of the drift in  which these hien were at work.  We are of the opinion that the accident could have been avoided by the  exercise of proper care on the part of  these men in making a thorough examination of the holes previously made  and supposed to have been properly exploded by the workmen on one of the  shifts preceding them. It appears to  us in view of the fact that the nature  of the work necessitates a succession,  or following one another of different  shifts or gangs of men that such accidents can only be avoided by a thorough  examination of the face of any drift to  ascertain if there are any holes which  are not fully exploded before drilling  others which may come in contact with  them.  The failure of these men to take this  precaution was evidently the primary  cause of the accident. We are also'of  the opinion that there should be co-operation for mutual protection on the part  of the various shifts working in the  same.face or drift, in, making careful  reports tosucceedlng t.hifts of the condition, m'which'theyilea.veJtheir work,  especially with reference to any shots  that may not have exploded.

R.   and other  companies  ,.  in   the   west.      In   reference   to   this  matter the Toronto Globe says':  It is announced from Winnipeg that  the Northern Pacific Railway has made  a reduction in fares on its Manitoba  system from four to three cents a mile.  If the Canadian Pacific wilt follow this  example over a wider field the change  will no doubt serve its own interest as  well as that of the general public. No  course, could be more popular than a  general overhauling of freight and  passenger tariffs on the western sections of the transcontinental road. ;That  there is abundant room for improvement no one will deny, and it cannot  be ultimately profitable'for the railway  to pursue a policy certain to foster discontent. The present rate from Winnipeg to Brandon over the main line of  the Canadian. Pacific, 133 miles, is  three cents per mile. From Brandon  to Calgary, some 700 miles, and to all  intermediate.points, it is four cents  per mile, and from Calgary to the  Pacific terminus and on all traffic between these points the rate is five  cents. No return tickets are issued at  reduced fares'except to Calgary to the  Pacific terminus, and on all traffic between these points the rate is five cents.  No return tickets are issued at reduced  fares except to Calgary, which is but  one of many .features'of the present policy which has the appearance of a monopolistic advantage.  Many western papers.are complaining-  loudly  of existing rates.and methods,  and :, the   comparisons   instituted  with other British colonies are not  always favorable to the Canadian northwest.    The fare from Winnipeg to Calgary, 840 miles, is $32:50, while in New  South Wales it would be  $17   for   the  same distance.  A return ticket to   Calgary, the only point to which a reduced  rate can be secured,   is   $50,   while   in  New South Wales it would be $29.    In  the  Australasian   colonies   there    are  many other features especially  advantageous to the public.   Not only  are  ordinary fares lower than  in  Canada,  but there are special   reductions on a  sliding scale for long distances, regular  reductions on return tickets, and provisions by which school children  travel  at one-fourth the usual rate,   the age  limit for   that   favor   being   eighteen  years.      This   railway   policy   in   the  southern  colonies   has   resulted   in   a  great volume of traffic and  in  many  general economic advantages. In addition to these fayors to the public  there  is no charge for carrying the mails nor  for Government business.    It would be  unfair to compare the Australian  conditions with those surrounding the operation of the Canadian Pacific Railway.  The Government railways in the southern colonies are not operated for  profit  but for the benefit of the public.   They  are not made tax-collecting institutions.  Some of them have been subject to error on the other side and have had deficits to be made good by taxation.    But  while a comparison with Australia may  be   unfair   to   the   Canadian   Pacific,  there are many features in the western  management of that road which call for  reform.    Local rates in many instances  are unreasonably heavy.    The railway  has more   power   and   more   authority  than can safely   be  conferred  on  any  private corporation, and the result is a  condition certain to provoke discontent.  giving the knowing ones plenty to  think about. It has been definitely  announced that the smelter is to be  built on the North Fork, but Mr. Graves  has purchased the Carson townsite,  Spraggett's ranch, and a portion of  Mclnnes & Vaughan's ranch. The  latter properties adjoin the Carson  townsite. Railways or smelters are  not built in a day, and it will be extremely interesting to watch the future  movements of the big companies.  i'OARD OF TRADE.  Theke is no good reason why Greenwood should not have a live and vigorous board of trade. There are so many  matters of importance to the city that  require organized action, that a board  of trade is. a necessity. Every business  man should become a member, and  give a little, of his time towards promoting the interests of the city.  S1DLEY    NOTES.

At about,4 o'clock Tuesday evening  between Johnston Creek and Rock  Creek on the government road, two  half-drunken Siwashes, named Norris  and Johnnie, from the head of Okanagan Lake, assaulted and robbed George  Cawston. Cawston was riding, and  leading a pack-horse, wheii the two j  Indians rode up, and demanded his |  money. While he was struggling with !  one of them, the other nearly tore his  pants off, and succeeded in tearing the  pocket out. After securing $40 in cash  arid a $40 cheque, they decamped.  Charles Winters,, the Camp McKinney  constable, is now iu pursuit of the robbers, and it is expected that they will  soon be in custody.

Provisions for Reeulating  Railway and Telegraph Companies.  An Ottawa dispatch says : A bill of  considerable importance will, be taken  up by Mr. Blair at the next meeting of  the railway committee/ "Its" provisions  will deal with the building of telegraph  and telephone lines; public bridges and  the operation and control of railways.  Perhaps the. most important is that  which refers to the operating rules for  railways. It is provided that the railway committee of the privy council  may make rules and regulations for all  railways within the jurisdiction of the  Dominion parliament. These rules  supercede all previous ones. Such  rules will be subject to the approval of  the governor in council. Another provision in the bill is to give power to the  railway committee of the privy council  to order, railway companies to erect and  maintain stations at given points. The j  bill provides that anyone destroying  the gates, fences or buildings of the |  company or entering a train with the |  idea of defrauding companies of fare, i  will.be liable to fine and imprisonment, j  The telegraph and telephone com-!  panies incorporated by act of parlia- !  nient are empowered to break up or |  open any highway subject to the i  jurisdiction of the municipal council, j  Travel is not to be obstructed, and j  companies are not heedlessly to destroy,'  shade trees. The surface of the street;  must be restored to its former state, i  Iu case parliament shall order at any j  future time wires to be placed under j  ground, the companies now entitled to !  carry them on their poles will not be ,  able to recover damages. In case of I  companies incorporated to construct \  railway and general traffic bridges, no '  discrimination for transportation can.:  be made against any company. . i  CORYELL'S mP, .Price $1.25, |    McELMON,V  Kerby's Map of Wellington Gamp; $1.00  '- '' - A fiile line of  Pipes,   Cigars,p  Tobacco  and Pouches  klusl Received,  J.

From Davenport to  Republic is ai>out 80 miles. But apparently the Great Northern is also anxious to tap the Boundary Creek country, and is surveying routes to Midway and Carson. It is quite possible  that the C. P. R. and the Great Northern have decided to work together. It  is definitely announced that the spur  from Columbia to Carson will be built  by the C. P. R. this summer. There is  absolutely no business for this spur  unless connection is secured with the  American  side.      Mr.   Graves  is  also  ! Just Arrived  4��  ������ 49* m <�����!

THE WINNIPEG MIRE  SHORT DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY  A Large Amount of Development Carried Out  at a Low Cost���Good Values at Different  Levels.���A Rich Chute at 300 Feet���Good  Smeltine Ore and High Values���The Plant.  EDUCATING   THE   EAST.  When the absence of  transportation  facilities,   the   excessive   cost   of   the  necessaries of life, arid the difficulties  in securing mining supplies,  are considered, the transformation in the Winnipeg mine from the time of its location  to the present state of development  is  a remarkable one.    The Winnipeg was  located in June, 1895, by  Duncan,, Mcintosh,  who stuck to the property, and  is now  president of  and  one of   the! ��  principal holders in the company which  is developing it.'     Nature   has  been  generous  tov the Winnipeg, furnishing  it with ledges of rich ore, but the credit  for making.the Winnipeg' a big mine  is due to Mr.tMcIntosh. ^Single-handed,  he went.to work to develpp' the property  at a time; when  there was  but* little  encouragement for. the expenditure of  energy���;or .money.)Hvl ,the   Boundary  Creek district. ;-He soon demonstrated  that the Winnipeg ,was -.; a '-'property  of  unusual   merit.- -~ Mining -men. made  flattering offers to purchase the Winnipeg,   but  with  the  stubbornness  and  canniness   of   a   Highland   Scotsman  Mr.  Mcintosh refused.      He believed  that the original  locator of the property,  who bore all the hardships of the  prospect;stage, could well afford to take  chances of making.a:larger stake than  that offered by the capitalists.   In July  1897, he; succeeded  in  organizing  the,  Winnipeg^Mining & Smelting company  with himself as president and  managing-director, ,D. H. Beecher���a prominent North  Dakota banker���treasurer,  and W..i\'. Honey secretary.1   Sufficient  of the treasury stock was sold to place  ample funds at the disposal of the company for development purposes.     The  new company began work in November  1897.     Today the-Winnipeg has more  developrrientjWork than any other mine  in the district, and it has been  carried  on  at ;a-; less cost.    A double compartment shaft���14 x 8)4���runs  to the 300-  foot leveL;  at the 50-foot level there is  a 74-foot ilrift run west from-the shaft,  and a 36-foot crosscut.     .There,' is 500.  feet of drifts and crosscuts at the 100-  fobt level,, and 360 feet at the 300-foot  level, making nearly 1,300 feet of work  in all.   All this work has  been done  under the  personal supervision of Mr.  Mcintosh, and this probably  accounts  for the exceptionally low cost.    A record has been kept of the cost of work,  including outlay for labor, timber, pow  der, candles, and fuel. For $6.72 per  foot, 579 feet of work was run during  five months of last year. The  ground is, of course, favorable to cheap  work, but careful management is primarily responsible for the low cost.  The ore is a rich pyrrhotite. At 'the  50-foot level two ledges were crosscut;  one is<2to 6 feet wide, and the other 5  to 8 feet wide. The work at the 100-  foot level crosscuts several chutes of  rich ore. At the 300:foot level, the  drift runs through a new chute 90 feet  in length. ' The ore gives high gold  values. Five tons sent to the North  Port smelter gave $74.41 in gold and  44 cents in silver." This is above the  average value, but there are 1,500 tons  of ore on. the dump which will ^average  not less than $30 to theton. The ore  is an excellent smelting ore, and a very  low rate has already been offered for  transportation and treatment. Although no effort has been made to  stope out the ore, there are already  6,000 tons in sight without considering j  Mr. C. D. Porter Has a Good Word to Say For  The Boundary Creek District.   >  C. D. Porter, representative of the!  Kansas City Refining,& Smelting company, whovisited Greenwood last week,  has been doing good work during his  visit to the city in advertising the mineral resources of British Columbia.  Last week the Times republished an  interview with the New York Commer--  cial Advertiser. A lengthier interview  appeared in the Montreal Herald of  recent date. Speaking of the Boundary Creek country, Mr. Porter said :���  " Going from the west to Rossland,  you enter what is known as the Boundary Creek country, which lies between  Christina Lake and Midway, a distance  of about 60 miles. In this area are  situated many mining camps, which  are named after the individuals who  the claims, and the names,  were I to repeat them to you���some  huhdred of them���would be too tedious  reading in ' a newspaper,article', but I  may mention that here yon have such  well-known .properties as Knob, Hill,  Old Ironsides, Mother Lode, Brooklyn,  Stemwinder, and B.C.���all of which  are sufficiently developed to prove that  they are exceedingly valuable properties ; and they .will in the near future  very materially increase the production  of both gold and copper in British  Columbia.  ..-. "Pursuing our way: still further west  we come to the, Camp McKinney district, in which is situated the Cariboo  mine, which"'is'also "well known in  Montreal as a dividend payer. From,  there out west to the sea, and even to  the islands of the sea, the country is in  a measure undeveloped, but every  mountain range shows promising veins,  many of which will,- no doubt, when  developed, make profitable mines. Taking the country I have briefly described  to you as a whole, I do not hesitate to  say that it is one of the greatest, biggest, and best mineral fields for investment and development known in the  world today.  " The new line of railway from Rob-  son to Midway will be completed some  time during this year, and many short  branches, or spurs' I ought rather to  say, will be constructed to different  mines throughout the Boundary Creek  country. In fact, the facilities which  will be given by the" Canadian Pacific  Railway company for the handling of  large bodies of low grade ores will be  practically'all that/anyone could wish,  and it will enable these ores to be marketed in the near future, and thus the  mines will ..become hot ..only self-sustaining*'but dividend-paying.  .>....   .  WILL  MAKE  A  FEATURE  OF  MINERALS.  L. K. Armstrong, secretary of the  mineral division of the Spokane Industrial Exhibition, has issued a circular,  from which the following is taken :���  "The annual Spokane Fruit Fair  has been merged into an event of  broader scope than heretofore, and this  ���its sixth year���is to be known as the  Spokane Industrial Exposition, with  mining as its most important feature.  Extensive exhibits are expected from  all ;the.camps of this state, and those  sections of, British Columbia, Idaho,  Montana, and Oregon heretofore represented, with the addition of all other  camps available.  "Additional features are to be added  in the exhibition of mining machinery,  and awards will be made on the merits  of the exhibits upon the recommendation of a competent jury.  "A special excursion of mining investors- from eastern cities is to be  undertaken. From the present outlook  it is expected that such excursion will  be. made, and that several hundred  eastern people will participate.  " The American Institute of Mining  Engineers will-hold their annual convention in San Francisco in October,  and negotiations are aheady started to  induce those from the east to return  via Spokane, where they can stop over  for a few days, and after examining  the  exhibits   in   the   exposition,    visit  the new chute at  the 300-foot  level, j some  of the outlying camps.       This  An upraise will be run in this chute at j organization is composed  of  the  lead-  an  early  date,  and  the 200-foot level  will be driven.  The plant at the Winnipeg includes a  6-drill compressor, one 60-horse-power  boiler and another 35-horse-power boiler, a 6x8 hoist; a No. 5 Cameron pump,  and 2 machine drills. The buildings  include a frame shafthouse���24x50 feet,  a comfortable office, a bunkhouse,  messroom, and stables. The branch  railway to Greenwood and Wellington Camps from the main line will  pass through the Winnipeg, affording  good facilities for shipping the ore.  The property is situated about 10 miles  from Greenwood.  High values, good ore bodies, low  cost of minining and treatment, are  striking characteristics of the mine.  It has passed beyond the doubtful development stage, and is sure to become  a big shipper and big dividend-payer.  Those who take an interest in mining  investments appreciate this fact. Less  than six months ago, the stock was  quoted at 17 cents. Today it is up to  35, and hard to get at this figure.  ing mining men and engineers of this  country, and will probably number  three hundred in attendance.  "Parties have been selected in near  ly all the mining camps who are urged  to see that creditable exhibits are made  from their sections.  ,  "Every effort will be bent to make  this the greatest mineral exhibition  ever shown in this country; it only  remains for those who are chosen to  represent the camps to make it such."1  Three men are at work on the Tiger  adjoining- the R. Bell. There is a shaft  on this property 56 feet deep. The  shaft wiil be sunk'to the 100-foot level,  and a crosscut will be run from the  present level. The Tiger has the same  showing as the R. Bell on the surface,  and stands a splendid chance of developing into.a big mining property. It  is owned by Fred Munns and G. Goodhue of Greenwood, Alex. Owen and Joe  Baron.

Dick  Eloquently   Describes   The   Great  fi ��� ��� Possibilixias of This District.  At the Mcintosh banquet held recently in Rossland, Alexander Dick.responded to the toast "adjacent camps."  He confined his remarks to the Boundary Creek district, and said in part:���  "Let us pass lightly over the corporate pride displayed,   mixed  be  it  said  with   a   slight' tinge   of modesty,  in  claiming Rossland as the greatest mining center in British Columbia���-a proud  distinction, conceded, I believe, by  every  fair-minded  man   who listened to  Mr. Eraser's speech (hear !  hear !), but  it would  be  unfair to the people   of  Rossland  if we did  not  here  utter a  note of warning- and remind them that  the .great Boundary district, on which  a bountiful Providence'lavished  great  mineral  resources, may, within a comparatively short time, prove a rival for  the distinction of being called, not only  the greatest mining center of British  Columbia, but the greatest mining center of  Canada.  (Prolonged applause.)  Sir, the healthy rivalry of opening the  greatest number of mines, and extracting the greatest quantity of' ore,  is  a  task so vast and so   absorbing  that  it  leaves no room for selfishness.    Those  who know Mr. Eraser will at once  acquit  him  of   harboring   in. his   large  heart any  but  the best wishes for the  success and expansion not only  of  the  Boundary,  but  of the whole province.  "   (Applause.)  .r-This  feeling, I am sure,  is general  in Rossland (hear !  hear !),  and you mayi be  assured,  Mr.  Chairman,  it is heartily reciprocated by the  residents of the Boundary district.     It  has been  truthfully, said that there is  no competition in the mining- business,'  and an American senator, possessed of  a keen sense of humor, who amassed a  large fortune in mining, explained that  ��� after failing ih other business he took  up mining because he had no competitors  to  fight, in   selling   gold   bricks.  (Laughter.) ;Be this as it may, it is an  undoubted fact that among men   engaged  in  milling  there  is always the  best of good feeling and good fellowship; ' which .invariably   crops  out   on  such occasions as this, when busy men  assemble from all parts of the province  to honor one  of their   own   number.  (Applause.)  ,. t'i,.  " When wejstop to consider that the  great Boundary.jjdistrict; extends^ ISO  miles westward,  and  contains within  its borders mountain's full of minerals,  and ore deposits on;a majestic scale, it  will be seen that" the colossal  task of  opening up -these extensive low grade  ore bodies  is,, as ?yet. hardly realized..  Over,there we have the North' Fork of  the^Kettle River and: Summit camps  in the neighborhood of Greenwood and  Midway, a little further south the  Republic camp, Camp McKinne_v, and the  Similkameen, with ores of gold, silver,  and copper.     The  people waited long  and patiently for a railway,   and  they  now feel that with  the completion of  the C. P. R. extension within the next  two months, their fondest hope will be  realized and a  new  era  of prosperity  will  begin.     The great possibilities of  the district will then be  better  understood.     Blast furnaces will belch forth  smoke from their tall chimneys,  and  the busy hum of industry will be heard  in    the    peaceful    hills    and    valleys.  Thousands of Canadian workmen   will  find profitable employment, and best of  all,.the ores will be reduced on Canadian  soil,  thus adding to the prosperity and  wealth of our own countrj'.   (Applause.)  "Apart from its vast mineral resources, the Boundary  district has exceptional  advantages  in possessing stretches of  territory  capable  of yielding  the  food  stuffs  required   by   a   large  population.     There,  too,  may be seen  the 'beautiful' flower-spangled  valleys  of the Kettle River and the Okanagan,  surrounded by a  thousand  hills,   their  slopes   clothed   in   nutritious   bunch-  grass, and dotted with herds and flocks  of the prosperous ranchers."  Gotipil & Holden, signwriters, painters, paperhangers, etc., etc., etc.  POLITICS   AT   A   BANQUET.  The great Mcintosh banquet had its  unpleasant side, judging'from the following-editorial in the Rossland Record:  " It is a grave mistake to introduce  politics into a banquet, which is, or  should be, non-political. This fact was  vividly illustrated last night when Hon.  Joseph Martin was hissed and hooted  from the hall for persisting in answering what he deemed political in the  address of Hon. T. Mayne Daly. Of  course Mr. Martin, as attorney-general  of the province, will not attempt to  carry out his threat to deprive Rossland  of her rights to a $40,000 courthouse on  account of .any. differences he may have  had with the few who took part in the  disreputable row last night. Aside  from this, Mr. Martin had better send  his regrets and apologies to the gentlemen there who took no part in the  affair for including them with the  " hoboes in dress suits." Mr. Martin  said many things for which he will no  doubt be-sorry, and those who provoked  his remarks owe an apology not only  to Mr. Martin, but to Mr. Mackintosh  and the people of Rossland. If banquets cannot be conducted in this city  upon more gentlemanly lines than the  one last evening and one ' previously  given, it is fully time to -cut them out''  in the future."

After a few casual remarks  abnul "silver lips" and newspapers  generaiiy, Mr. Fohsbender stated that  considerable work was being- done on  the claims of Myers Creek.  The 10-stamp mill on the Crystal  Butte will be running next week. The  sawmill is already running, a boarding  house and bunk houses have been built  and a chute from the mine tu the wagon  road is  under  course  of  construction.  There is sufficient ore blocked out and  on the dump to keep the mill running  for six months. '  The parties who recently bonded the  Review, an adjoining- claim to the  Crystal Butte, are developing the claim  by a 100-foot shaft and a 200-foot tunnel. The ledge is from 6 to 8 feet in  width and is a free gold proposition. ;  John O'Hearn has bonded his properties, adjoining the Review, to Republic  parties. The ore is galena' running  about $40 in gold and $20 in silver.  John McEchen. has bonded the Yamhill  to the same parties. On this property  there is 30-foot shaft, with a good ore  body.  On the Yakima a rich strike has been  made, giving good values in silver gold  and copper, some of the ore running as  high as 10 per cent in copper, but the  principal values are in silver. The  property is being developed by a Yakima company.  A tunnel is being run on the Philadelphia, lying north of the Crystal  Butte. The tunnell is now in 60 "feet,  and will tap the ledge at about 30 feet.  The ore gives g-ood values in both copper and gold.  Harry Morgan and C. Brown are  working on the Cariboo and Rumbler  in the same camp, and have uncovered  some very rich ore, giving values in  copper gold and silver. Development  done so far is surface work.  A. Hutchinson and John Grant are  sinking- on a g-ood body of ore in the  Umatilla.  MacKay Ingrim is developing the  Racer, another promising claim.
