R. and Great Northern  the Contestants.  10   I   SIMILKAMEEN  Both Companies Are Closely Watching Each Other-  ^^*^-*|.** + ^*^*^^*^***^'f' + 'f'^'��''f'*6  Will the Great Northern go into  winter quarters or will it continue to  fight for territory on the Canadian  side during- the winter? This is a question which the C. P. R., would like to  h^Eve answered. The big- Canadian  company is ready to give battle to its  principle enemy on the hills or in the  valleys of the glorious Similkameen  but it is not particularly anxious to  continue hostilities while the mercury  sinks below zero and the Italian  navvy chatters his teeth and spends  his time in longing for the warm rays  of sunny Italy rather than in making  railway grades. But if fight they  must they have got the men. they have  get the charter and what is still more  importan'- they will have the money  in a short time. The Canadian Pacific Railway Companv is making a  raise of some twenty-five odd millions  of dollars, and with this, in the inside  pocket, it does not propose to allow the  Great Northern to get all the, trade in  the Similkameen arid Nicola.  In the meantime the officials of both  companies are kept busy watching  each other. When they meet they  give each other the glad hand and  their smiles are always childlike and  bland but friendship goes no further.  The Great Northern has been sending  its best and brainest men to size up  i lie situation and figure out the amount  of tonnage in sight, and it has also  sent out its engineers to find a feasible  route over the divide between Kettle  River and Okanogan. Last year J. H.  K-niicclv followed instructions of J. J.  Hill ami surveyed a road on a 1 per  cent ifrnrle over the mountain. The re-  Mill was TiTHT~a~Ton^detouFriad "to" be  made into the United States before the  Okanogan valley could be reached. It  was gently hinted to Mr. Hill that the  country to be traversed was not a one  per cent country and that it would be  more profitable to supply the power to  haul trains over the mountain on a  two per cent grade than build and  maintain a road on a one per cent  grade. So the Great Northern engineers this year are finding a new route  with more grade and less distance.  Already Chief Engineer Hogeland and  Chief Contractor Shields have been in  the Okanogan, and this week R. C.  Morgan, superintendent of the S. F. &  N. and the V. V. & E-. and John C  Eden, general traffic manager in the  west' left Midway for the.west. They  are looking for tonnage and as it can  easily he found no doubt they will  bring in a good report of the promised  land.  The chief scout of the C. P. R.  forces is Harry E. McDonnell of  Nelson. He can make a 100 mile ride  on horseback and return as gay and  deb*-nair as ever, or he can smell a ton  of freight if it is within reasonable  di-i;mce of the C. P. R. line. Mr.  McDonnell journeyed into the Similkameen a lew weeks ago and his report  to his superior officers would be gladly  welcomed by men who have Similkameen mines to sell. Mr. McDonnell  was here on Wednesday last and on  Thursday he went out into the west.  Somewhere between Midway and the  City of Tulameen he will meet R. C.  Morgan :>ml J.-hn C. Eden. They will  meet :is brothers. Railway yarns will  swapped :mi<1 other things done, but  Harry MclJ**niiell will not tell the men  of the Great Northern when the C.P.R.  is troing to invade the Similkameen.  This much is certain. When the actual fighting commences the hills will  reverberate   with   the  blasts from the  railway camps, and the good people to  the west, whose hearts have been made  sick by hope deferred, will see not one  but two railways building into their  district.  PLEASED WITH WEST  R. T. Riley of Winnipeg an Interested Visitor-  R. T. Riley a well known financial  man of Winuipeg was in the city last  week after having visited the coast.  Mr. Riley made some investment here  a few years ago and he does not regret having done so. He believes that  British Columbia mining is beginning  an era of better times. The wheat  growing sections and the manufacturing centres have had their season of  prosperity; a change is sure to come  sooner or later and when it does come  money which is now required in carrying on the extensive industrial institutions of the east will look for investment in British Columbia mines.  The days of wild catting have disappeared and the second boom will be  on a legitimate and  permanent basis.  NEW USES  ACQUIRED  Montreal and Boston Company Buying Properties.  And Sudbury���Force Under Superintendent Collins Increased.  The Montreal and Boston Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company  are acquiring more properties. Recently the Lancashire Lass in Summit  camp was bonded from W. G. McMynn  and Thos. Hardy. This week the  Sudbury, in Deadwood camp, was  bonded from J. Graham. Both properties have ledges of good copper ore.  Superintendent Collins has already a  force of .men-at work on the Lancashire  Lass and work on the Sudbury wil" be  commenced in a few days.  Good progress is being made in enlarging the shaft on the Brooklyn;  Work was commenced last week on  the Rawhide and this week on the  Stem winder. With all these properties working the company will soon be  in a position to commence large and  regular shipments of ore to its smelter  at Boundary Falls which will be blown  in early in October. Coke is new arriving for the smelter and a good reserve will be in the bunkers when  smelting will begin.  The company made a substantial  payment on properties recently acquired. The original owners of the  Athlestan, who are principally local  people, being among those paid.  General Manager Pemberton left for  Spokane Tuesday. He will meet A.A.  Munroe there who is coming here for  the first time since the big amalgamation was successfully floated. Mr.  Munroe will remain here for several  days.  Gorman West and G. O. Guise are  down from the West Fork.  The Providence Mining Company  has declared a fourth dividend of ten  cents a share.  H. J. Baron,representing the Mining  Reporter, a high class mining journal  published at Denver, was in the city  this week.  The list of property to be sold for  taxes will be published in about two  weeks' time. Those who can arrange  to pay their taxes before date of publication will save some expense.  W. Macey, Phoenix, who is interested with O. B. Smith in the Skylark  bond, was in the city tliis week and  confirmed the report published in the  Times last week that a deal had been  niade for this famous property.  BONDED THE  E. P. U. MINES  Duncan Mcintosh Secures  For Himself and  I  Messrs- Beecher and Honey Again Invest in Boundary Mines-  One of the best developed high grade  properties in the district again changed hands on Monday last when Duncan  Mcintosh, acting for himself and some  North Dakota capitalists, secured the  E. P. U. mines. The bond is in the  name of W. F. Honey of Park River,  N. D. Associated with them are D. H.  Beecker and Geo. E. Towle, both of  whom are identified with the banking  interests of Grand Forks and Park  River, N. D. Messrs. Beecher, Towle  and Honey were associated with Mr.  Mcintosh in the original Winnipeg  company. They sold out some years  ago and are again turning their attention to mining in the boundary.  The E. P. U. mines l-ave been developed to such an extent that there  can be no doubt regarding the value or  permanency of the property. The  group includes the E. Pluribus Unum,  the Lancashire fraction, the Marjorie  and the E- P. U. fraction. The property is locatytl a s'.lort distamce above'  the city hall on Twin creek.  D. H. McVicar and associates bonded  the property some two years ago from  Pittock and Sluggett. Sincethen considerable work has been done on the  property and over 250 tons of ore shipped which netted, after freight and  treatment charges, over $60 to the ton.  The work includes a 300 foot tunnel  and shaft 85 feet in depth. The vein  is a true vissure one and the values  are in gold and silver.  A well built gravity tram was constructed last year to carry the ore from  the mine to the wagon road above the  city resevoir.  Mr. Mcintosh took the property over  on Tuesday- last and immediatelyin-=,  stalled James Drum as foreman. He  has 12 men under him. Regular shipments of high grade ore will be made  from the property.  The new owners intend forming a  joint stock company which will be run  as a close corporation. No treasury  stock will be issued.  WORKMAN'S   DAMAGES  Case Held Under the Act at Greenwood Courthouse.  Mrs. Christensen, widow of the late  N. P. Christensen, and her two children are seeking damages from the B.  C Copper Co. under the Workman's  Compensation Act. The evidence in  the case was heard at the courthouse,  Greenwood, this week, His Honor  Judge Leamy sitting as arbitrator.  S. S. Taylor of Nelson appeared for  the Christensens, arid H. C. Shaw for  the defendant Company. Christensen,  while working at the smelter in April  last, was seriously injured and died at  the hospital two day*? later.  His honor reserved his decision in  the case.  Next Thursday evening- at the Audi-  torinm, the  Greenwood Citizen's band  will be hosts at   a  concert and dance  given for the purpose of raising money  to   pay   for   the   handsome   uniforms  which tho band boys 3 re now wearing.  The band is a cred't to  the city and  I district   and   should   be    encouraged.  I For this reason alone there should be a  bumper house, but those who buy tick-  ; ets will have  the  additional  satisfac-  ! tion of attending a  concert and dance  i well worth the full price of admission.  j     Thos.

For some time the  general impression prevailed that  another session of parliament  would be held before appealing  to the country. It is quite possible that this will yet be done.  The government undoubtedly  possesses the confidence of the  people, it has a large majority in  the Utilise of Commons and it  would be justified in carrying on  the affairs of the country for the  full life of parliament without  appealing to the people.  There are two good reasons to  advance for an early dissolution.  A new redistribution bill was  passed two sessions ago and the  electors are entiled to representation under that act at the earliest  possible date. Then again the  people should have an opportunity to express their approval of  the Grand Trunk Pacific scheme  and thus stop the insane criticisms that disappointed Tories  are directing against a project  which means so much to this  country. The exact date of the  election vill be decided by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier. No doubt he  has consulted his colleagues or  will at an early date regarding  this important matter. If the  elections are to be held   this fall  NOT  WANTED.  Holding up railway trains is an  innovation which will not be appreciated in thiscountry. Canada  has been particularly free from  assaults of this kind, and it was  worth something to thiscountry  that its denizens and even strangers within its boundaries had confidence thai person and property  were always safe. Our reputation in this regard is too valuable  to lose and every effort should be  made to apprehend the daring  men who held up the C. P. R.  train this week. When they wc  captured,our courts can be depended upon to inflict such pun-  men t as will be a warning to desperadoes not to ply their trade  on this side of the international  boundary line.  MINING ACTIVITY.  The news columns of the  Boundary Creek Times this week-  tell a story of remarkable mining  activity in Greenwood and vicinity. Not since the early days of  the camp when outside capital  made investments here, has there  been such a boom in mining.  This activity is of the greatest  possible advantage to the camp  because in the majority of instances it is local monc}' which is  being invested and paid to local  men and which is consequently  being expended and distributed  in the city. Every new deal  means the employment of more  men and distribution of more  money among business men and  others in the city. Greenwood's  high grade belt means much to  Greenwood, and there is every indication that in a short, time  every property of merit will be  exploited.  Those who have to do with His  Majesty's customs should bear in  mine that changes have been  made in the Customs act during  last session. An Order in Council was recently issued deal in a;  with duplicate invoices, new certificates and declarations on invoices rind changes in the oath on  customs bills of entry. Such  changes take effect on October  ���lst,���wlieu-.dup]icatc--iuvoices-will  be required with bills of entry.  Parents- are .again urged to'sent:  their children to's'chool. The at  tendance at present is not at all  in keeping with the size of the  t'itv. It is tptite evident that  there are a number of children of  school age who are not being  educated. A strict enforcement  of the compulsory attendance  clause may be necessary.  The Grand Trunk Pacific officials have, returned to the east  without giving out any information regarding the western terminus of the transcontinental  road.  Victoria is making a bid for  the western terminus of the  Grand Trunk Pacific.  There  is  something  doing iu  the high grade belt.  Greenwood   is   a   high   grade  camp,  These   are   growing   times in  Greenwood.  v'"S-;")  ci*  EALED TENDER"5, addressed to tlie l'nst-  wJ master General, will lie received at Ot-  Ui\."i until Niiivii. mi Friday. 7tli !,'ct.il>er ue.\t  for the conveyance, of Her Majesty's Mails, on  a proposed Contract 1'or four years, twelve  times per week eacli way, tietween Anaconda  and Greenwood from 1st.

The deceased was  breaking on the ore train which runs from the Mother  Lode mine to the smelter at Greenwood. The train was  in charge of Conductor Wells aud was made up.of the  engine and four cars. At the time of the accident, the  cars were being shunted 011 the weigh settles and Mr. Red-  pa tli was engaged in cutting off three of the cars. ITe  slipped and fell and the trucks of the empty car next to  the engine passed over his legs before the train could be  slopped. Tlis legs were horiblv cut and all the bones  shallered. Tie was immediately taken to the hospital  where a consultation of tlie medical men of the city and  Dr. Gordon of Phoenix was held. They decided that there  was no hope lo save his life by amputation as the shock-  was too great. The poor fellow passed away at noon today.  Herbert Redpath was about 23 years of age. He was  horn near Niagara Falls, Out., where his aged mother still  resides. He has lived in the Boundary for several years  and was a universal favorite with all who knew him.  Much sympathy is expressed for his brother E. R. Red-  path, C. P. R. station agent here with whom Herbert  generally made his home when in the city���  Mr. Redpath has decided to take the remains back to  Niagara Falls, for interment. He will leave either by tomorrow's or Monday's train. Due notice of the funeral  services here will be given  later.  !!*WSS83B"��ft-'L&S,1*i-*J  DEALfcRS IN  mini?*  ruffe  5  s.

XXX AND XXX  PLUMBER  A mountain of hard coal lias \ieen  purchased by P. Hums & Co. for $320,-  OOt), says the Winnipeg Free Press of  September bth. The property is on the  Misty ratine, 36 miles west of Okotoka,  Alta., and comprises 16,000 acres. It  was discovered by an explorer, Julius  Kickart, D. 1'/. S., and a party of surveyors spent several weeks in the district and made a thorough inspection of  the coal seams as exposed in many tunnels made by the miners in the pass.  From information   gleaned   by   the  Okotoks Herald from Mr. Rickard  and  others members of the   survey   party,  there exist   a   veritable   mountain   of  pure anthracite coal.   The situation of  this phenomenal coal bed is most   picturesque.    Upon either side there tow-  | ers huge, precipitous mountains   thousands of high and nestling in a  valley  is this   mountain   of   coal,   which   is |  twelve miles long and three miles wide  in   extent.     The   formation   of    this  mountain differs vastly from  the   surrounding mountains, inasmuch as it is  covered   with   vegetation,    while   the  others are bare limestone.    The   place  selected and laid out   for   townsite   is  preetily situated.    There ar<i fully five  square miles of valley   to   build   upon  any quantity of pure, sparkling mountain dew and timber   iu   great   abundance.   The situation is   most   picturesque, the scenery being magnificent.  For some time past miners have been  engaged making tunnels into the mountain and succeeded in exposing 26 veins  of coal, which varies from four feet up  to forty   feet.    Samples   of   this   coal  were sent to assayers in Denver,  Vancouver and other cities, and   in   every  case remarkable   reports*  were   made.  The assays of this coal run faom 87 to  92 per cent, carbon.    The following   is  the report received of the assay of the  four-foot   vein:      Hydrocorpic    water  none, volatile matter, -4* per cent;   fixed  jarhou, 93    per   cent;   sulphur,   none;  ;ishes, 4 per   cent.

VVnat particularly  attracted  the  attention was the  total absence of rock,   and in   burning  there is practically no smoke,but a blue  blase.    A   test  was  made in an ordinary coal stove, it being filled with coal,  which   burned   for 71 hours.    Upon investigation   they   found   only a small  amount of  white ashes,   without any  signs of   clinkers.     The  coal   ignites  easily, and from   their   experience  in  burning   it they feel satisfied it excels  the well known Pennsylvania coal  The advantage of working this mine  is a great consideration. In driving  | the first tunnel at right angles to the  strike, theaverage dip-being..about 50  degrees, it will cut the first vein at  about 100 feet, and from Mien vein after  vein at your pleasure. They ran  chambers to right aud left of main  tunnel, which has a r'se of six inches  to every 100 feet whereby practically  no machinery is required for taking"  water out of the mine.  Julius   Rickard,   the   discoverer   of  this mine, has had a varied experience.  Three years ago  it was that he landed j  at Banff and inspected   the  anthracite  coal  nitues  there.-   Since then he has  been searching   for  the   mother  lode.  Arriving at  Okotoks in August, 1902,  he drove out west, and  after exploring  the mountains ne at last discotiered the  real thing.    Producing samples,he got  Pat Pi urns greatly interested, with the  result that   the   latter  paid   out to tlie  government 5320.000 for the 10.000 odd  acres of coal land   which   he   now possesses.   Mr. Burns is highly elated with  his purchase, and is of the *>pinioin'hat  it will develop into   the largi-sl mining  camp  in   the   I).'minion.

McNicol's    Store    and  Other Buildings Burned.  mmmmmmmmm  is  The Midway Advance  Office is Completely Wiped Out-  Midway was visited by a disastrous  lire on Friday niefht. J. McNicol's big-  general store, the Advance office, the  barber shop and one or two vacant  building's were destroyed and it was  only by Dlowing' up a building' with  dynamite that the fire was checked  and the rest of the town was sared.  lortunately there was little or no wind  because on account of the lack of water  little could be done to check the flames.  The origin of the fire is unknown.  About half past eleven Friday night  James Bush was awakened by noise  and looking out of his window saw  llames running up the side of McNicol's  store. When he got to the scene of  the fire the stairway going up the hall  above the store was all in tlames and  i a looking into the store he could see  lire inside; showing that the fire had  started from the inside. As everything  was as dry as tinder around the store  it is presumed that a tramp had  thrown down a match or cigarette, or  some passerby smoking had carelesly  thrown his stub near the building.  Before the town could be aroused the  entire building- was in tlames, and  what little wind there was being from  the west, the Advance building soon  caught and was also doomed. In order  to sava Hain & Go's store and post  office, the barber shop run by Ed.  Mellville was blown up with dynamite;  this checked the tlames. Thomas'  drug store to the east of McNicols received a scorching as did also the  customs oflice across the street.  The losses are heavy and insurance  small. The largest loser is McNicol.  He is one of the pioneer merchants of  the district and carried a large stock of  general merchandise. His store buildings aud all his goods were completely  destroyed.    His loss  will   easily reach  CAPITAL $250,000  Divided into $1,000,000, at 25c Each.  The area of an oil field is the most valuable land known to commerce, its shares are a good investment because those that invest  now get in on the ground floor. Get a prospectus of the Company  read it carefully and ask yourself the question whether it is not a  fair risk that this company should come to occupy an equally commanding position in the oil industry.

The Midway advance was ��� the  pioneer newspaper of the Boundary.  It was established in 1894 by Norris  and Stuart. C. M. Crottse acquired the  plant and building about three years  ago an<* conducted the paper since  then. The Loss is about S2000 with  ��600 insurance.  There was no insurance on theGuess  building which years ago was used by  Guess Bros, as an assay office, but  which was vacant at the time of the  fire.  The building which was used for a  barber shop and was blown up was  owned bv Geo. Cunningham, the mining recorder. A small insurance was  carried.

In this work he has had the  aid of an able staff of assistants���notably L-. C. Shaw, chief constructor of  buildings, C. Sorenson, master mechanic, R. T-iclen, draughtsman, and  Gus.

As  soon as this proposed work shall have  been accomplished, the management  will have little difficulty in keeping'  up the shipments, as ample sloping  ground will then be available Recent  assays of ore in the shaft gave a return of $198 per ton. The management anticipate that ore of that value  will be struck, as no attempt was made  to sort the ore in the earljr shipment.  The vein is a true fissure, occurring  in a contract between granite and  lime. Two others parallel veins on  the Strathmore also give promise of  disclosing equally high grade ore  when developed. They will ultimately be reached by the cross-cut tunnel,  which has already been driven ISO feet  in the direction of No. 1 vein.  A   High   Grade   Mine   in  the  High  Grade Belt.  Smith Curtis, Rossland, F. H.  Knight, Grand Forks, Alex. Millers  and others are a syndicate which have  secured a working bond on the Strathmore from C. Scott Galloway the  owner. Their intention is to incorporate a company to acquire and develop their high grade claim.  The Strathmore is a full claim It-  is situated in what is locally known as  tlie north belt, being separted from the  Providence by only one property.  A shaft 60 feet deep has been sunk  on the lead. At the bottom of the  shaft the vein was found to have faults  ed, and accordingly a rrnss cut was  run a distance of 60 feet, wli* u the  lead was again encountered. In this  working the vein is .[uite ,-lrong,  av;ra^ing six to eigiit inches in width  and in several places swelling lo a  width of twelve inches. Drifts were  also run from the 50-foot level of the  shaft in both diretious for nearly 60  feet. From these workings, and from  the sides of the shaft, considable ore  was extracted by the late owners. On  the surface there are numerous open  cuts and a deep trench opened up  along the course of the vein. Thus  far the property has shipped about  thirty tons of high-grade ore, some of  which was hauled in the early days in  sleighs to Marcus, whence it was shipped by rail to the Tacoma smelter.  The last shipment of three tons was  ���extracted from the- surface ^workings,  about a year ago. It was treated at  the Boundary Falls smelter and netted  S78 per ton in silver and gold. The  latter represents 10 per cent of the  total values.  The Syndicate intend to drift south  on the vein shown up on the 50-foot  level and extend the working Lo a  point underneath the trench and open  cuts from which the last shipment of  ore was extrated. Then the work of  stoping out the ore will be rushetl in  order to make a carload shipment before the end of next month. The  Strathmore also has a ISO-foot tunnel  which will crosscut the vein at a depth  Wise and  Otherwise  J. Lawrence, superintendent of the  C, & W. was in the city this week.
