The<payment will be made but of  the proceeds of the ore. Since this  property Was taken over.by James  Sutherland .'and Phil McDonald every  installment of the purchase price', was  paid out of the proceeds of the mine  and the cost of development,.labor "and.  material' was paid from the same  source. Few.'* properties in British  Columbia have such a flattering record;  Usually money and lots of it has to be  furnished to.place a mine on a-.paying  basis, but the Elkhorn paid from-the  grass; roots. Fourteen men^ar*,.now,  employed ;iii' the mine. jin~ incline  stiaft ha<s been sunk a distance of : 176  feet and ore is being.taken from ajdrift  from tliej bottom ; of the shaft ; The  vein averages* 12''inches in -width,,  widening often to 'wo feet. The ore  is now being shipped to the Greenwood  smelter without sorting. The local  smelter is giving a reasonable rate  and by treating all the ore without  without sorting a big saving is' made.  The average value is about $100 to,the  ton. The vein is strong at the lower  level and it looks as if the Elkhorn  would soon join its neighbor, the Providence, as a dividend payer.  A new blacksmith shop, an ore house  and shaft house.have been built on the  property. This fall a horse whim will  be placed in-the shaft house, but in the  spring-a modern mining plant will be  installed.  MINING FLOAT  Two  Men  Crushed  Under Tons  of  Falling Rock at Phoenix  In the first accident of its kind in the  history of the Granby mines, anil the  'first fatality of any kind for a number  of months at Phoenix, two men were  instantly killed last Friday night in  the Knob hill mine.  The night shift was at work about  400 feet from the portal in the No. 2  tunnel, when without warning a portion  pf the roof broke away and crushed T.  Malloy and James Crabb under tons of  rock, death being instantaneous.; One  man who was in a mine ore car had  just jumped but and the car was - filled  .vyi.th the falling ore../.'All ;.the men at  once'-ise'tito work getting out the unfortunates, the'remains being taken to  the undertakers, and were < buried  Sunday. ���;������".���:  ��� ;Ja'mes..Crabjb;.was -a-young' man, a  native of Denhead, Scotland, where his  father still lives. Malloy was anolder  man, and an Irishman by birth, though  little is.known,of him here.. Both had  been in the camp but-a few months.  SAt the,place where the men were at  work several'shifts had been employed  tnakingv'safe the overhanging rock,  and it,was .considered safe.  Canada for Canadians  Several loads of fruit have passed  through here during.the last few days  orit the way ������ ���'to Greenwood, B.;C���.  Chesaw News.-- The American fruit is.  h'a'uled in' wagons a greater distance  /than Canadian'fruit of better quality  may, be secured: '-But-the Canadian'  fruit must be hauled over the C. P. R.  It-is ��� unnecessary'to state' that fruit  hauled over the C. P. R". cannot be laid  down in Greenwood as cheaply as fruit  hauled by four horse teams an equal  distance. The wagon rates are away  below the C. P. R. rates. This accounts for the fact that American fruit  finds a ready market in Canadian towns.  Silver has slumped to 60��ir''  l  The demand is greater than the supply in the copper market.  The Gold Finch in Skylark camp:is  improving with every shot.  gradually increasing the.forces.;  A brand, new, up to-date blacksmith,  shop has been built at the Elkhorn.  Development work has been started  on the Emma fraction in Summit camp:'  Last week Rossland camp' shipped  8,760 tons of ore; ' So far this year the  output is 322,114 tons. *        ...'.'  In New York yesterday copper .'.was  quoted as follows: Lake, $14; electrolytic' $13.75; casting, $13.50. ��� -���:   ���      >;:;".'  The Rockefeller family liaveinvested  $30,000,000 in the silver-lead mines, of  the Coeur d'Alenes. They are also  seeking investments in Kootenay.  The Rathmulten in Summit camp is  again to start under more favorable  auspices. This property has . been  closed down for about three years.  The Homestake gold mine in South  Dakota is valued at $50,000,000. An  offer of $35,000,000 by the Rothchilds  was refused by the management last  week.  The cost ot mining at the Athelstan  is lower than at any other mine in the  district, as the ore is soft and easily  mined. The glory hole is assuming  large dimensions.  The   largest   nugget   of   gold   ever  found   in .Alaska   was   recently   dis  I  covered on  the claim of the Pioneer j  Mining   company.       It   weighed ��� 181 i  ounces and was valued at $3,276. j  The local syndicate who are developing the Ruby near Boundary Falls, are j  running a tunnel to tap the ore  body.  They expect to run into shipping ore in j  a   few   days when shipments  will be j  made to the Boundary Falls smelter.     ���  Special -License Void  Chief Justice Hunter of the British  .Columbia, supreme' court, sitting at  Roaslaud, decided that a special license  does not-revive'title to mineral lands  which had been allowed to lapse < arid  had been relocated by a second party.  The Woodbury Mines, a corporation,  lost some claims on W��odbury creek,  by failing to ; renew-its,:free miners*  license. One Poyntze jumped the  ground. The Woodbury Mines after  several /months took out a_, special  license, which'it claimed "revived its  .title as against Poyntze. Accordingly  it tried tcadverse his claim, but was  defeated.  Postal Regulations  . The'''-Dominion;-*'postal authorities  have issued circulars to postmasters  notifying them: -not -to' accept matte<"  foi* points in the Yukon north of White  Horse except letters and post cards,  newspapers from the office of publication addressed to' public libraries, to  newspaper offices and to individual  subscribers, and transient newspapers  until advised of the opening of navigation in the Yukon next year.-   ���-'  Butte on the Bum  .. Owing to the recent decision of Judge  Clancey the Amalgamated Copper  -company shut down all its mines in  Butte and vicinity, throwing over  14,000 men out of employment.  Laborers should keep away from  Butte as the only thing doing is turning handsprings for free lunches.  ALIEN LABOR LAW  No   Infraction   of  the   Act   in   the  Boundary Country  Louis P. Eckstein of (iratid Forks  was appointed by the minister of  justice to take evidence in regard to  the alleged infraction of the alien  labor act, found that it was unnecessary  to hold a session in Greenwood, as  George Dougherty, secretary of Greenwood Miners' Union, stated that so far  as , he knew there had been no complaints regarding contravention of the  act in the Boundary, and that everything was running without any trouble.  Mr. Eckstein held a meeting at  Phoenix, but no one appeared to give  evidence.  Great Attraction Coming  No doubt our citizens will be delighted to learn that the . Maridor-  Goulding company will be at the  Auditorium Saturday night, October  31. It is needless to say that the company is an excellent one. Miss B.  Goulding, England's famous lady  cornetist, who has won glowing press  comments in every town she appeared,  is one of the special features. The  company is booked for a return date at  Nelson. The Nelson Daily News of  October 23 has this to say of the performance: "The Marirtor-Goulding  entertainment last night proved to be  a delightful novelty. The two little  girls, Hazel Raymor and Mildred Basset, were very pleasing in dance and  coon songs, Hazel's Egyptian dance,  being very taking. Miss Goulding;  the English cornetist, was the star of  the evening, and it is a pity that she  did riot give a greater number of  selections as her exceptionally fine,  playing of:this, the greatest of all wind,  instruments, was much appreciated:  Her military selections which she  played in uniform made a special hit.  Miss Maridor fainted on the stage  during the evening and her performance was very goort considering ,that  she has been under the -doctor's care  for a couple of.days."       :j__.   ;  Highbinders' Society  -Greenwood-is growing. A Chinese  caseirirthe police court now reminds  one of Victoria or San Francisco.  Tyees, witnesses, prosecutors, interpreters and well salaried-counsel play  .the same tricks that made' famous  Bret Harie's Ah Sin. 'There are at  least two rival societies in local Chinatown and wherever there are -two  Chinese societies there is sure to be;  trouble. Last week they started in to  carve each other with butcher knives  and let daylight through each other  with revolvers. Important witnesses  vyho didjiotx_are_to.give: evi.dence^i'no  sawed" English and produced a new  brand of Chinese that the intepreter  couldn't interprete. Finally one of  their number was committed for using  a knife and gun.  Senator Sold  Chris Tobiassen, the lucky Swede,  is nigotiating the sale of his Senator  claim in Summit camp to the Granby  company for $35,000. The ore is high  in iron and is needed for fluxing purposes, Toby, who six years ago  couldn't tell a mine from a bale of hay,  has done well in the Boundary. Four  years ago he sold some miuing property in' the same camp for $40,000.

Thomas Midway,  WEST FORK  RAILWAY  Mayor Smailes Left for the  East Today   ".  Will   Be   Made  to  Construct  This  Important Road  Mayor Sriiailes left for the east today  for the purpose of interesting capital  in the Midway & Vernon railway. He  will visit Montreal and New York and  his trip may possibly he extended to  England. The Dominion bonus for the  road will be about S6000 a mile, and  this with the provincial aid should encourage capital in the enterprise. This  is particulary true when it is considered that.the railway will open up  one of the'most promising mining districts of the province, and at the same  time connect the rich Okanagon fanning country with the boundless Boundary, thus giving the very best market  for Canadian products. By connecting  with the C. P. R. at Vernon the road  will also, afford the shortest route to the  coast, and is 24 hours shorter than the  circuitous route via Revelstokc.  If satisfactory financial arrangements are. made active construction  will.be commenced in early spring.  Enjoyable Dance  The biggest and best dance ever held ,  in Greenwood was theuniveasalopiniou  of those who attended the annual ball  givar~"lj3'.~TJoT4'iT<lary Valley CoclgTe,"  I.O.'O'F., in 'the Masonic hall last"  evening. Over 150 couples were in attendance, and all appeared to be  thoroughly enjoying themselves. The  music furnished by the Greenwood  orchestra could not be improved iipou.  The coriim'ittee in charge had the hall  tastefully./decorated, and during the  evening made-special efforts to make  strangers feel at home. In addition to  the local pleasure: seekers there was a  jolly crowd from Boundary Falls, Midway, Mother Lode mine aud Phoenix.  Supper, was served' by the ladies o��  St. Jude's church.  ^- fiew Grocery ------  The Galloway brothers, sons of C.  Scott Galloway, havedecided to go into  the grocery business in this city. The  boys are practically a home production,  they came here while quite small, were  educated in the Greenwood school and  later at the Victoria and Vancouver  high schools. Charles Gal loway is now  on the coast buying groceries. They  will occupy their own store building  adjoining the Imperial hotel.  Right You Are  The opinion is general that it will he  well for the legislature to avoid tinkering with the mining laws, for the less.  frequently they are altered the greater  security is felt by those investing  capital in the industry.���Fort Steele  Prospector.

This may be accounted for  by the fact that in every instance  the Americans won and Great  Britain lost. Each succeeding*  ;;rbitration ouly strengthened the  conviction of Canadians that it is  impossible for the 'Americans to  raise a contention too absurd or  too outrageous for the Britisher  to stomach. In addition to : the  Ashburton steal, the San Juan  difficulty, the-'Oregon and Wash-  ngtou give-away :and; the more  ecent Alaska bbutidar}- outrage,  here.have been .other difficulties  which have been amicably settled  because; , the United States got  everything she wanted.  Shortly after the war of 1812 a  lispute      arose      through      the  tmbiguity of the language of; the  .reaty of 1783 defining the Boundary between Canada  and  United  States between the St. Lawrence  river  and   Atlantic, ocean.    The  .dispute was referred to. the King  of Netherlands in 1827.    In 1831  he gave his award and it was not  . satisfactory to Great Britain  nor  '-the^Uhited^rStates.-'-Maine-sen t-  E.rnied men to the .disputed' terri-  . cory in 1838 and established forts,  it   looked   for  a  time as if  war  would settle the difficulty,   but  a  .nice was declared  and  arrangement made for joint  occupancy.  'Three years later the Ashburton  ' reaty was signed and Maine was  lost   to   Canada,    Some   of   the  "Democrats in the  senate  kicked  ��about the award  and  refused   to  -atify   the   treaty,    but    Daniel  ���Vcbster, the  American  commis-  ��� iouer, asked for a secret  session  ����f the  senate.    The doors  were  rlosed    and    Webster    produced  ...laps and data to prove beyond a  ���"oubt that the British contention  ./as right.    He advised the senate  to accept what the}' had  because  it was far more than the  United  States  was  entitled   to,   and   as  he naivel}- put it, "the Britishers  may wake up and discover these  maps.and. then we will lose everything." Needless to say the senate,  accepted   his  advice.    The  purchase of Louisiana by the United  States led to-complication  as  at  that time the northern boundary  was not defined.    By pure bluff  the Americans succeeded  in  getting the Britishers to agree to the  "9th parallel as the boundary- line  from   the   Great   Lakes   to   the  Hocky  Mountains, ?nd   in   1818  this boundary was fixed by treaty.  '.Vest of the Rockies the country  as   far   south   as   the Columbia  river was occupied and  governed  1 v the Hudson's  Bay   company.  Lritain   made   a  weak  effort to I  make the Columbia river the  boundary line to the Pacific, but  the Americans bluffed again.  Instead of sticking to the ,49th  parallel the Americans raised the  cry, "Fifty-four forty or fight."  The Americans claimed that 54  degrees 40 minutes north latitude  should be the boundary instead  of the 49th. This scared the  Britishers half to death and they  finally agreed to the 49th parallel  and the U. S. senate chuckled and  magnanimously agreed to this  arrangement in 1846. Then a  further dispute arose over the  boundary, line in the gulf of  Georgia and Straits of Juan de  Fuca. The dispute was referred to  the emperor of Germany .who of  course decided in favor of United  States and San Juan islands  which should belong to Canada  became the property oi United  States.  In the Venezuelan boundary  dispute Grover Cleveland twisted  the lion's tail and he did not even  grunt. The Alaskan boundary  decision is of too recent date and  too painful to dwell upon at any  length.  The above goes to prove that  United States can at any time  claim any portion of the Dominion  of .Canada and can secure'��� the  same by- peace methods. The  victories of peace are apparently  one-sided.  Last week the police of New  York raided a so-called Young  Men's Christian Association,  which has been making a,display  of zeal. They found in the back  room a full-fledged saloon; 'The  place was being run bj* a preacher  who recently attained notoriety  by transferring his entire flock  from.the Baptist to the Congregational church because he was  opposed to immersion.

Macdonald, the new Liberal  leader : "From a Conservative  point of view we are glad to see  a decent man as leader of the  Liberal party, feeling that he will  always give willing assistance-to  build up his province, instead of  using his ability to retard its  progress in order to gain some  personal advantage, as has been  the way in the past."  The friends of J. M. Kellie  have decided to protest the election of Thomas Taylor for Revel-  stoke riding on the grounds of  alleged bribery and corruption.  John L. Retallack will also protest the election of Hon. R. F.  Green for Kaslo riding. With  one majority, Houston agin the  government and election protests,  uneasy must rest the bones of  the premier.  4  !~XK"XK~XK��X~X,<K��X~X,,<vX**X��  t  V  t  y  t  v  v  ���.-.  f  Y  Y  V  t  Y  Y  Y  y  y  Y  Y'  Y  Y  Y  ���Y  Y  Y  Y';  Y  V  Y  ��  Y  y  ?

Crow's  Nest coal and oil lands that returned  John Houston for Nelson. John  pledged himself to have these locations  granted to the locators, ;and as the  locations have been  made mostly on  Vindication of a Hero  It is with great pleasure, mingled  with feeling-s of bitter indignation and  borrow, that the Post Intelligencer  reprints the report of the royal commission which so completely clears the  good h irne of the late Major-General  Sir Hector Macdonald.  There had been scarcely less admiration in this country than in Great  Britain felt for this gallant officer, who  had fought his way up from the ranks  to be a major-general and one of the  most brilliant and beloved officers of  the British army.  The news of his death by his own  hand in Paris, and of the charges  against his manhood which inspired it,  horrified and astounded all those who  knew anything of his career. Now we  learn that broken in nerves by his  campaigning in the Boer war he was  driven to kill himself on account of  false rumors of a crime so abhorrent  i<> nib fine soul that he couldn't even  face the inquiry into their truth.  Perhaps never lias there occurred a  more pitiful tragedy. A brave, loyal,  brilliant man, conquering not only his  country's enemies but the almost unconquerable lines of caste in the British  irni)'; winning his way to almost the  highest rank by sheer merit and devotion,' gaining and holding the love  of his soldiers by his kindliness and  care no less than by his fearlessness,  lie was murdered by a slanderer who  charged him with a crime too vile to  mention.  Gallant Sir Hector is gone, but his  wife aud son are living and must endure the agony of the cruel tragedy.  Mis ^slanderer also lives, and either  hers or elsewhere will find the punishment that he deserves ��� Seattle  Post-Intelligencer.  He Learned a Great Lrutri*  It i-s 'said of John Wesley that he  once said to Mistress Wesley. "Why  do you tell that child the same thing  over and over again?" "John Wesley,  Jb'ecause once telling is not enough."
