I  *<i*<Mfr��">'i><^x~:"K"X^  Well Known Mining Property Has Been Sold  For Montreal & Boston Copper Company���Ore For Its Smelter.  The Montreal aud Boston Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company  has arranged for a never failing supply of ore for its smelter at Boundary.  Through Andrew Laidlaw of Spokane,  it has purchased the entire assets of  the Morrison Mines, Ltd. Local shareholders in the latter company thisjweek  received an announcement from the  head oflice in Spokane that the directors had decided to sell for $24,166.76.  As 1,208,338 shares of Morrison have  been issued, this will give two cents ?.  share. The reasons for selling the  property are given in the following  resolution passed at a meeting of the  directors:  "Wheieas, this Board has fully considered the means ot working the mines  owned by this Company.  "That the result of experience has  demonstrated that the said property,  while in conjunction with others, is of  value, as a single property it caunot  be worked commercially and success-,  fully without- 'thiV>"eornp'any owning  and operating a smelter and acquiring  other* mines to. produce ore that will  flux with ores produced by this Company. ';.'  "That this Board is unable to finance  the money necessary for the construction of a smelter'and acquiring other  properties to work with this Company's  mine, which would cost at least the  sum of $250,000.    ;..  "That this Board have this day an  offer from Andrew Laidlaw to purchase  thesaid property .for the sum of S24,-  16'6":76^"iid""ai;tii'a'ii's"fe"r"'tSih'im"()f"iiiir'thei  property and assets, of the Company.  "That the Board is of the opinion  that in view of, tlie present position,  and of its inability to i aise the money  necessary to the successful operation  and working of this Company's property, that it is in the interest of the  shareholders to accept the ofVer of  Andrew Laidlaw for the purchase and  sale of tuis Compa iv's entire property  and assets.  "Therefore, Be it resolved that the  offer of the said Andrew Laidlaw of  Spokane, of the sum of 1324,166.76 for  all the property and assets of this Company be accepted."  An accompanying letter to the shareholders states that: "Through the  courtesy of Mr. Andrew Laidaw, any  stockholder of the Morrison Mines,  Limited, who does not care lo sell his  stock for two cents a share, will have  the privilege of exchanging his stock  in the Morrison company for stock in  the Montreal & Boston Consolidated  Mining and Smelting Co. at the rate of  thirty 10 cent shares of Morrison for  one S5.00 share of the Montreal &.  Boston Consolidated Mining* and smelting Co., which is fully paid and nonassessable. This company was formed in Ontario Canada, with head oflice  at New York City. It is capitalized  for $5,000,000, one million shares of S5  each. The property now owned by  this Company includes the Sunset,  Crown Silver, C. O. D., Florence, Morrison, and one-half of the Little Buffalo, also thj smelter plant of the  Montreal & Boston Copper Co., at  at Boundary Falls, B. C. The smelter  has been in active operation for the  past eighteen months, has two furnaces  in operation and the third one is on the  ground. The Company intend adding  the fourth furnace and a converter  plant, which will enable them to turn  out the finished product of 1500 ions of  ore per day. The amount of stock required  to  acquire the above property  was 340,000 shares, leaving a balance  of 660,000 shares, or 53,000,000 for buying other properties and making the  intended improvements at the smelter,  and building a spur to the Morrison  mine. Negotiations for the purchase  of the Dominion Copper company's  properties arc about completed, which  includes the Brookly, Stemwinder, and  Rawhide, which are developed and  fully equipped with all necessary machinery and railroad facilities, and as  soon as the consolidation is effected  the Montreal and Boston Mining and  Smelting Co. will be second to none in  the Boundary.  We will further state for the benefit  of those who contemplate exchanging  their Morrison shares for the Montreal  & Boston Mining and Smelting Co's,  that in the event they care to sell their  stock in the new company after the  amalgamation, they can realize about  6o per cent of the par value, of $3.00,  which would be equivalent to 10 cents  for Morrison, and we believe this stock  will sell at par within one year, which  means at the rate of 16)4 cents for the  Morrison shares, or 6)4 cents above  .^-,. ��'  The Morrison is situated in Deadwood*  camp, about one mile west of the  Mother Lode. A considerable amount  of work has been done on the property  and there is a large tonnage of shipping  ore stoped out. The management of  the company endeavored to make arrangements with the C. P. R. to extend a spur line to the mine but was  unsuccessful, and having no smelter of  its own the company was forced to discontinue operations after having shipped oboutSOOOtonsof ore to the Mother  Lode smelter, which had to be hauled  on wagons to the railway line.  The Montreal & Boston Copper Company's smelter was closed about two  months ago when the Snowshoe discontinued shipments. Since then several rumors have been circulated regarding the intentions of the company  but the deal for the Mo'rrisoh. was unexpected. It will give the company a  good supply of ore for its smelter and  should the amalgamation with the  Dominion Copper company be carried  out, the. smelter will have a variety of  ore which will make a good blende. It  is expected that as soon as the deal is  closed work will be commenced at the  Morrison, arrangements made for the  continutioii of theDeadwood spurto the  mine, and tlie smelte*.' again blown in.  -Grand_Forks���Romance,  A despatch from York, Pa., says:  "Stories of romances growing out of  notes scut in bottles and cigar boxes  have been told and printed numerously  lately, but it has remained for a York  candy factory girl to select a more  appropriate vehicle for opening correspondence with the man who now declares he is her aflinity.  She is Miss Daisy Armpricstcr, who  sent her message in a box of confections known as "Sweetheart  Kisses."  It was iii the midst of the busy season  at the American Carmel company's  factory here preceding the Chrismas  holidays that Mist, Armpriester, in a  spirit of fun, wrote her name and address upon a card, with the request  that if the finder be a gentlemen to  make himself known to her by letter.  She placed the cards in the box,  which as it now develops, found its way  to Grar.d Korks, British Columbia,  where the missive, nestling among the  sweet, fell into the hands of Aaron  Sweezey, a prosperous bachelor 28  ye'*rs old.  The writer of the note had forgotten  the box of "Sweetheart Kisses" and  the missive it bore, until she received  a letter from Sweezey, who asked her  to open a correspondence with hiin,  Letters have since passed between the  two and Sweezey proposed marriage,  aud in his last letter expressed his intention of coming to York to visit the  girl who puts the final touches to  "Sweetheat Kisses."  If there be no parents 1 objection���  Miss Atmpriester is but 18 years old���  the romance which had its beginning  in the candy factory may yet end at  the altar.  We will rent,  sell or exchange anything second hand.    O. I. C. White.  THE WEEK'S  Two Prominent Mining Men  Return to the Camp.  P  Alameda Sold to Minneapolis Parties  ���Mining Notes.  Mark F. Madden, president of the  Providence Mining company, arrived  in the city yesterday from Chicago and  will remain here for some time looking  after his mining interests. Mr.Madden  reports good times in the windy city  after a rather severe winter. "  Wm. Fowler1, father of. high grade  mining in this district, returned yesterday from a three months trip to his old  home in Scotland. He thoroughly enjoyed his visit to the land of the heather. Mr. Fowler will resume work on  the Defiance in a few weeks.  The shaft on the Don Pedro, one of  Chicago and B. C. Company's properties in Providence camp is now  down 70 feet. The shaft is in ore  which runs very high. No shipments  have been made but a considerable  quantity of high grade ore is now on  the dump. ......  The local syndicate which bought  the Gold Bug and neighboring properties.-just north of the- .town, some  months since, have made final -payment. The property is looking* well,  has a good record for values and is in  the hands of excellent men. This  means another dividend payer for the  camp within the next year.  H. H. Shallenberger, of this city, recently sold to Minneapolis parties the  Alameda claim in Deadwood camp.  The Alameda adjoins the Mother Lode  goup on the south and ii on the Mother  Lode lead. The big compressor plant  of the B. C. Copper company at its  Mother I^ode m^ne, is near the.Alameda  line and in excavating a site for the  plant a body of good ore was uncCiver-  ed. The purchasers will probably develop the prepefy*. With the expenditure of some money it is sure to develop  into one of the shipping mines of this  camp.  The owners of the Last Chance just  east of the town have reorganized under  the name of the Spokane and Boundary  Mining company, and will presently  resume operations on their property.  The claim is well equipped with machinery and is considered a valuable  property. It lies just west of the Crescent property and is near the Don Pedro  ou which Aarry Shallenberger is making a good record.

ONE FOR THE YANKEE  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Canadian  Premier, is credited with the following  reply. At one of the big receptions he  was attending there was a young  xVmerican who was adversely criticising Canada and things Canadian, and  in response to some disparaging remark made anent a national emblem,  Sir Wilfrid reminded him that in addition to the maple leaf Canada had  the beaver, the emblem of industry.  "Oh," retorted (he Yankee, "we call  the beaver a rat with a swelled tail."  "And many people are apt to look on  your American eagle as a jay with a  swelled head," promptly retorted the  Premier.

BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  Through   the  World-Famed 'District  of Gold���Young   Old  Men of Wholesouled Hospitality���c4 District With a  'Bright   Future as well as  an  Historic Past.  "He sec an aukl channel  Buried in the hill  Pill'd fu' o' nuggets,  Sae gaes at it \vi' a will  For lang weeks and mouths,  Drifting late and air-  Cutting out a door  To his 'castle in the air.' " .  So sang* the Cariboo bard in the  early days,   in the  days of old,  the days of gold, the days of '59.  The vast majority of  the people  of the Dominion believe that the  Cariboo of   today  is   a   district  ���with  a past and nothing* more.  They  give  it  credit for  having  added some  fifty millions to the  world's wealth,   and  then passed  into   oblivion   like   many   other  famous  g*old fields.     The great  majority is mistaken.    Cariboo is  a district   full  of  surprises; it is  also full of potentialities.    Fame  is   desirable,   but   it   sometimes  seems  a  handicap.    The argou-  ants  of  '58  went there and "hit  the  hig-h  places."    They   found  millions and  many  of  them  departed. Cariboo     is     played  out      was     the     verdict,     aud  strange to say,   that during* the  long years which intervened since  Cariboo occupied the attention of  the    world,    that    verdict   still  stands.    But  it  is  a verdict not  based on fact, and the day is not  far distant when Cariboo will-yet  occupy a leading place���not the  sensational,   picturesque Cariboo  of the  golden days���but a  permanent,     prosperous,    populous  Cariboo, furnishing" its share of  the mineral wealth  of  the province,   and   providing   homes for  those who will cultivate its fertile  and productive soil or who will  herd their cattle in its great expanse of grazing lands.  The writer did not g*o to Cariboo to learn these things. I went  looking* for votes. But no one  can remain in that district three  weeks and not become impressed  with the fact that the reputation  of the good old days has largely  obscured the possibilities of the  "district; "It"has"done~nrore;it1"ias  retarded its development. Cariboo was discovered forty years too  soon. It should have two or  three railways running through  it, but up to the present the only  means of ingress and egress is  the wag*on road. The public are  slowly beginning to realize that  Cariboo has something* more than  a past, and that it is a district  worthy of every encouragement.  It is people who make a country  great; it is people Canada needs  and no district offers greater inducements to those anxious to  make comfortable homes than  Cariboo. The Liberal government has adopted a policy which  will result in peopleing the west,  and with such a government aud  such a policy  the  opening up of  Cariboo cannot  be  long* delayed.  A Hospitable People,  Cariboo is a country of distances. From Ashcroft to Barker-  ville is 2S0 miles, and the district  extends hundreds of miles north of  Barkcrville. There is much of it  unexplored arid uninhabited, and  other sections that can claim only  a few scattered inhabitants.  Cariboo proper is eight times the  size of Great Britain. I rode 650  miles in a cutter, another 600  mile trip must be taken before  the settled portions of the district are reached. Campaigning  in Cariboo is no picnic but the grit  candidate found consolation in  the enthusiastic liberalism ofthe  people and both candidates can  find consolation in their whole-  souled hospitality. Mr. Burrill  will enjoy the trip. He will fiud  few Conservatives there but he  will find what after all is much  better���a Avhole-souled, -generous  people always ready to extend the  good hand of fellowship. As  Archie McDonald of Lillooet put  it: "There is a pound of friendship for every ounce of politics in  this district."  The B. C. Express.  Ashcroft is the gatewa)*- to the  Cariboo.    It  is the point on the  railway where all   Cariboo traffic  begins and ends.    In the absence  of railways the great transportation agency is the  B. C. Express  company.      This   company    has  been in existence since  the early  days.     It has changed hands but  it still is the medium which connects  Cariboo  with   the outside  -world.

His company run a stage  toBarkerville and more frequently  to Clinton and other poiuts. It  His Majesty's mails and provides  what is practically a rural delivery to the people along* the road.  Each resident has his mail at his  own door and he can send out  mail in the same convenient way.  The company keep good horses  and good rigs, and with frequent  changes of horses the trip to  Barkerville is made in four days.  It may be mentioned here that  the Dominion government maintains a telegraph line from Ashcroft to Barkerville, and that the  line to Dawson also runs from  Ashcroft.  A Good Guide.  The stage is too swift for a man  looking for votes, so I took a  private rig at Ashcroft and secured the services of Eddie Bell  as driver and pilot. Eddie is a  native son and knows the Cariboo  road and everyone living ou it; so  I was fairly safe in making a trip  to a land unknown to me.  Old Time Friends  A short distance from Ashcroft  lives Chas. A. Semliu, the venerable ex-premier and ex-leader of  the opposition. Mr. Semlin had  "a'cdmfortable'honie^and'a^glad  welcome for the grit candidate.  He is a Tory aud will vote Tor}*,  but in the days of non-party lines  in this province many :'of his  warmest supporters were grits  aud he has a warm spot iu his  heart for them still.  A little further on the road  lives Daniel O'Hara. The people  of the interior do not know Daniel  but those who lived 'on the coast  do. Daniel is a Liberal and nothing c?n change him, but he and  Mr. Semlin are warm personal  friends, so when Mr. Semlin came  into power, his Irish friend became strgeant-at-arms in the legislature. He invested the position with a new dignity. Always  corteous and always well informed in all matters Mr. O'Hara was  easily ��ne of the. most popular  officers of the house, but a change  came in the government and Mr.  O'Hara came back to his ranch  on the Bonaparte. .  But where is the man from  Bruce? One cannot travel far  without meeting him and this is  also true of Cariboo. At Cache  creek and at Clinton are Duncan  and John McGillvary respectively.  They knew a freckled faced kid  back in Bruce and they were glad  to welcome him as the Liberal  candidate in Cariboo. All along  the road Bruce men can be found.  They invade all quarters of the  globe.  Along* the Road. j  Clinton   is a pretty little town l  40 miles from Ashcroft. It is  surrounded by some fine ranches  and is a distributing point for a  considerable farming settlement.  The first political! meeting was  held here. There was a good attendance including a number of  ladies.  From Cliuton to 150 mile house  the are some well kept farms  along the road. Every farm  house is a road house. The  traveller can stop anywhere and  is assured of a good meal or comfortable bed. There is meat iu  abundance, eggs absolutely the  best, cream that is a stranger  to water or ail}* adulteration, and  plenty of home made bread, and  vegetables���all home grown but a  treat to the hungry man.  One of these houses���the 83  mile���is owned by David Stoddard, who represented Lillooet  for a number of years in the legislature. Mr. Stoddard, who is  also from Bruce, is a successful  farmer and has one of the best  places on the road.  The next meeting was held at  Lake Laliache, one of the prettiest spots in British Columbia.  The meeting was attended by all  the people from up and down the  road, some coming 22 and 23  miles.    Lake   Laliache  is noted  Corporation ol' tin.

Here it is :  Seven years ago last June the Conservative government was iu  power. Today the Liberals are in power and this is part ol their record  for the seven years past:  Seven years ago our revenue was 336,618,591; today it is 563,739,271,  or nearly twice as much.  Seven years ago we had a deficit of 5330,001); this vein* we had a  surplus of over 513,000,000, or a betterment of a little over 513,000,000.  Seven years ago our foreign trade was 5239,000,000; today it is  3459.ijori.000", or about twice as much.  Seven yours ago the. number of homesteads entered* during the year  was 1,857; this year it was 31,343, or a little over 17 times as many.  Seven years ago our cattle trade amounted to 5104,451; this year it  was 511,342,634, or say eleven times .js much.  Seven years ago we exported in oats 5273,861; this year we exported  S2.5S3,17i, or over nine times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in Hour 3718,433; this year we exported  54,699,142, or say six times as much.  Seven years ago our Territorial grant was ��267,000; this year it was  3957.000, ot say four times as much.  Seven rears ago our bank note circulation was 331,456,297; this year  it was 560,434,740, or say 52 to 51.  0 Seven years ago   w��: exported bacon to the value of 53,802,135;  this  6   vear wc exported 515,455,174, or about four times as much.

Mr. Bell, -although still a young  man, had won the confidence of  the miuing -world by his fearless  aud independent course. As  secretary of the Canadian Mining Institute he did much iu making that organization a success.  For a number of years Mr. Bell  was somewhat severe on the mining industry of this province, but  more recently his good judgment  led him into giving it that prom-  ince which its importance warranted.

Per Year    2 00  Six Months  1 2��l  To Foreign Countries. 2 50  FRIDAY,   MARCH   IS,  1104  DON'T KNOCK.  Knockers should be amenable  to law. They do a community  more harm than many a poor unfortunate who has to take his 30  or 60 days for lack of respect for  the criminal code. This week a  knocker started the report that  the Mother Lode smelter was going to close down for several  months. The report got more  serious with age until, the supply  of ore had exhausted values had  disappeared and the shut down  was to be permanent. The rumor was without foundation. The  smelter still runs, the ore bodies  are iuexhaustible and the values  are sufficient to give a reasonable  profit on the investment. The  company is actively engaged in  enlarging its plant and is getting ready for an iucreased output, the employment of more men,  and generally is doing more than  Jts shareja makingyh  the greatest mining district iu  the world.  The knocker should receive no  encouragement in this district.  What we want is men of big ideas  and abundance of faith.  MIDWAY TO YUKON.  The application to parliament  for a charter to build a railwa}'  between these two points is an  important one. Theconstiuction  of roads east to west will do much  in opening' up this province, but  it is equally important that a  road should be built connecting  the transcontinental roads. The  country to be traversed by the  proposed railway is blessed with  a wonderful variety of natural  resources and can easily maintain  a large population if given transportation facilities.  GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC  The modifications of the contract for the Grand Trunk Pacific  having been accepted by the company who in turn made a cash deposit of $5,000,000 as a earnest  of its bona fide intent to carry out  the undertaking, and the certainty that these modifications  will be ratified by parliament insures the early commencement of  this important work. During the  past seven years Canada has made  rapid strides, but nothing compared with the prosperity which  the   construction of   the   Grand  Trunk Pacific will bring. The  road will open up a new country,  it will giveemplo3*ment to a large  number of men. New towns and  new industries av:11 spring up and  a promising portion of this great  Dominion will be opened up for  settlement. It seldom rains without pouring, and in the grand  work of nation building there is  no limit to strides that may be  made when a right start is made.  For many years the progress of  Cartada Avas discouragiugly slow.  The increase of population was  distressingly small, as was that  of capital investef!; but a change  came with Liberal rule. There  has been what has beeu aptly described as "Seven years of fatness." With the eariy construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific  an assured fact; with an aggressive policy* of colonization and development; and with a progressive  government always on the alert  to promote the best interests of  the country, the next seven j'ears  are sure to be still fatter.  LILLOOET  In a short time a provincial  bj-e-election will be held in the  district of Lillooet. The member  Archie McDonald, having* drawn  pay as road superintendent after  his election was disqualified,  necessitating a bye-election. Hon.  Richard McBride, the premier,  was iu the district recenth* and  in all probability he succeeded in  inuucing_Mr..McD.oaald_���to. become the Conservative candidate  much against his own Avishes. In  the general election Mr. McDonald was returned by acclamation;  in the bye-election he will be defeated. Pie is easily the strongest man the Conservatives can  run, but his great personal popularity cannot saA-e him nor his  party. The people of Lillooet  are heartily sick of the McBride  administration. A harrassiug  and inequitable assessment act,  and a pandering to a dangerous  element in the legislature has  completcl}' disgusted the electorate and they are looking to the  Liberals, under the able leadership of J. A. McDonald, to lift  the province out of the quagmire  into which it has been plunged  bv an insane thirst for office.  If the Provincial Mining association does not floxtrish, it -will  not be from lack of ability* ou the  part of its officers. John Keen  has alread}* demonstrated his fitness for the position, and the new  secretar}', E. Jacobs, is peculiarly  fitted for that important office  Careful, painstaking and industrious, and with a Avealth of information regarding the mineral  resources of all parts of the province, the association is to be congratulated upon having secured  his services.  The mining industry has suffered a great loss in the sudden  death of  B. T. C. Bell, editor of  A "TAYLORIAN" GEM  Ashckoft, March 9.���Mr. Duncan  Ross, the Liberal candidate by Yale-  Cariboo, has found it necessary lo discontinue his work in Cariboo district.

The Best Remedy for Croup  This is the season when the woman  who knows the best remedy for croup is  in demand in every neighborhood.  One of the most terrible things in the  world is to be awakened in the middle  of the night of the night by a whoop  from one of the children. The croup  remedies are almost as sure to be lost  in case of croup, as a revolver is sure to  be lost in case of burglars. There used  to be an old fashioned remedy for  croup, known as hive syrup, but some  modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better, and  does not cost so much. It causes the  patient to "throw up the plegm"  quicker, and gives relief  iu        a shorter time.       Give  this remedy as soon as the croupy  cough appears and it will prevent th  attack. It never fails and is pleasant  and safe to take. For sale by J. L.  White Greenwood and A. F. Thomas  Midwav.  DR. MATHISON  DENTIST  Nadcn-Floocl Block, Greenwood. II.

It furnishes a  good fish story which has the unusual virtue of being true. At  Lake La Hache fish are skated  dcwh. Men'on skates run them  down and spear them. The. fish  are land-locked salmon weighing  as high asK 30.pounds and of delicious flavor.' In the fall of the  year when the lake freezes over a  man on skates may skate over the  ice lintil he sees a school of these  fish. He gets between them and  deep water. 0 The frightened fish  swims away ifrom him and he follows them up until the shallow  water is reached. The fish seeing no way of escape adopts the  tactics of the ostrich and sticks  his head into the mud. The  skater then cuts a hold iu the ice  and with, a spear soon captures  his victim.:  yA Noble Work.  The   next   point   is   150-mile  house. ��� This is another distribut-  ���'��� ing points Roads branch off  from here to the Fraser Ritrer,  Chilcotin and Horsefly country.  .Another successful meeting was  held here.  Five miles from 150-mile House  is the mission where the Fathers  have a finie f arm, and a splendidly  equipped school for the education  of liiclian boys. There is also a  Convent and a school for indian  girls.     A   delightful   afternoon  -���was-*spen"b here. His Lordship,  Bishop Dbntenwill was visiting  ihe school  and he and the resi-  ���    . . * .        * evi  dent Fathers did everything possible to make the visit a pleasant  ohe. Rev. Father Bedard of this  city, at one time had charge of  this school and many kind inquiries were made for him. The  Ca-thblic church throughout the  district has given many evidences  of a systematic- effort to uplift  and educate but none more striking "tnan^th^^^  mission. The boys and girls are  taken at tender years and kept  until they not only receive a  knowledge of the three R's but  are taught some useful trade as  well. Of course the work has its  drawbacks. With parents indifferent to the education of their  offspring, and with the natural  -longing of the indian youth for a  lifie free from every restriction  the Fathers have considerable  difficulty in keeping the children  under their charge, but notwithstanding these obstacles a great  and noble work is being accomplished.  The Mlehty Fraser/  The first point on the mighty  Fraser that is touched by the  Cariboo road is Soda Creek. It  is certainly a town of the past.  It is the starting point of a  navigable portion of the Fraser  and was in the early days a place  of considerable importance. A  steamer, owned by Senator Reid  and others, runs from here to  Quesnelle, a distance of 61 miles,  during the summer months,  breaking the stage journey for  that distance. The steamer is in  charge of Capt. Foster who runs  one of the hotels and stores at  Soda Creek. The other is owned  by P. C. Dunlevy, one of the best  known old timers in the provice.  He has also a fine ranch in the  vicinity. A successful meeting  was held here.  ���   Midway   between   Soda Creek  At The Present Time IS a��"  there  bring in  is no other  which  will  such  returns as this.  The price of coal has gone up all over the world, the consumption is enormous, to buy in any working company now costs a small fortune. THE INTERNATIONAL COAL AND COKE CO., is already a shipper and backed  by some of the strongest men in the country, with a conservative estimate of something like Fifty Million of  tons of Coal in sight, is the one to put your money in. Shares which can now be bought at a nominal sum will  reach big figures before long.  I have still a few shares left and when they are gone it will be too late for the small investor to get iu, if you want something which will net you a good income, don't hesitate but buy at once. First come, first served. When you see the price reach  three figures you will then realize that you have indeed missed a chance of a life time. I have als o a small Block of Northwest  Coal, another good thing as well as 3,000 shares of Denoro, this mine is bound to become one of the biggest shippers in the district.

Here the Hudson's Bay company  established a fort and did considerable business with the indians.  The fort has disappeared but  Alexander Mclnnes, a fine type of  the Scottish Pioneer is still there,  and further up W. J. Anders  keep a store and telegraph office.  Quesnelle.  Quesnelle is the home of Senator Reid and Mrs. McNaughton.  The one belongs to the rapidly  disappearing class who secured  control of the Senate during the  days of Sir John, while the other  is the wife of a pioneer whose  vigorous pen has clone much towards renewing interest in Cariboo by proclaiming to the world  something about its wonderful  resources, and who has won her  spurs in the literary world by the  publication of a well written  book entitled "Overland to Cariboo." Quesnelle is at the confluence of the Quesnelle and the  Fraser. It is the gateway to the  Cariboo district proper. Here the  Yukon telegraph lines leave the  Cariboo road for Dawson. Quesnelle is on the route between  Yellowhead Pass and Bute Inlet.  The Canada Northern will be  built through here and then  Quesnelle is sure -to-be a-city of  some importance. The meeting  held here  was  largely attended.  A Faihful Record.  John Boyd lives at Cottonwood,  20 miles above Quesnelle.     John  Boyd lived here for over 40 year*.  He raised a family of sturdy sons  and daughters, and kept a diary  of all that took place along the  road in these years. Not one  man ever passed up or down the  road without receiving mention  in Mr. Boyd's diary. He is  still vigorous and is well  informed on all matters, but  when the grim reaper comes,  ���if he does not overlook these  old timers in Cariboo���then Mr.  Boyd's diary will be a veritable  treasure house for the man who  will write a history of the district.

It is situated ou Lightning creek and is a town with a  past, but no one could spend a  night in Stanley Avithout coming  to the conclusion that it is very  much alive. Cariboo is overwhelmingly a Liberal district;  Stanley is unanimously and aggressively a Liberal town. A  meeting was held here. It began  at S:SQ p. m. and wound up at  4: SO a. m., and the exuberance of  their Liberal enthusiasm was not  then exhausted.  The Golden Me cca.  Barkerville was the mecca of  the gold seeker. It was the town  of the gold diggings. Here meals  cost S2.50 and a bottle of cham-  pag*ne was exchanged for an  ounce of gold; where potatoes  were worth a dollar a pound and  rubber boots 50 dollars a pair;  where eggs cost $8 a dozen aud  whiskey SI a glass; where millions  were made iu a short time and  just as quickly parted with.  There are still some of the old  land marks left. It is the home  of some of the old timers and the  centre of considerable mining.  Men like Andrew Kelly, James  Boyce, John Brown, John Stevenson and a number of others are  yet young looking men, were  there in the good old days, saw  its up and downs and have not  lost hope.   They yet believe there  is a future for the town, and they  are not without reason for the  faith that is iu them. There was  a good attendance at the meeting  and the candidate received a very  cordial reception.  Capital Invested-  This article is already too long  and too rambling*. It is not intended for a detailed description  of the resources of the district,  which could not be given iu the  space at my disposal. I cannot  conclude, however, without calling attention to the fact that a  large amount of capital has recently been invested in Cariboo.  Near Stanley an English company, under the management of  Mr. Bailey, has expended nearly  one million dollars. Gold being  heavier than gravel works its way  downward and finally reaches  bed rock. The stream above  carries from the mountain side  earth and gravel and piles it above  the gold. How to reach this gold  is the problem. At the Eleventh  of England, wliere Mr. Bailey is'  operating, a shaft has been sunk  over 200 feet in the rock and  drift is being run from the bottom  of the shaft to tap the gold in the  bed rock underneath the stream.  The water pours into the drift  and the difficult}' is to handle  this water. This is being done  by powerful pumps with capacity  enough to drain a good sized  river. That the g*old is there has  beeu demonstrated by diamond  drilling.     The same problem is  being faced on Willow Creek  where F. C. Laird, a brother-in-  law of Andrew Laid!aw, well  known here, and a brother of R.  A. Laird of the Rossland Miner,  has expended nearly another million in solving the same problem.  Mr. Laird was at one time head  of the publishing firm of Laird &  Lee, Chicago, but caught the  gold fever, sold out and invested  in deep diggings in Cariboo. On  Slaugh creek similar work is iu  operation. These men deserve to  win, and it looks as if the}r are  going to win. They have met  with much difficulty in handling  the water that pours through  workings but with the powerful  pumps now in position they  should be able to reach the gold  that lies on bedrock.  ��*0<KX>0<>0<><KX>0<>0-0<X>*W <  Paying Mines.  There are a number of smaller  mines producing gold. Above  Stanley is the Print claim which  netted the; owners over $20,000  last year. I went'down the shaft,  scraped the earth off the bedrock,  found a nugget weighing over  an ounce and in a few minutes  had over $50 or $60 in gold. The  Mollie Murplry adjoining is being  developed and other claims in the  vicinity.  Praying For Snow.  The hydraulic miner prays for  snow; his prayers have been answered this season.

Hobson, has taken out over  31,000,000 and has arranged for  extensive  operations this season.  Railway Wanted.  All these works are undertaken  at enormous expense because of  the absence of a railway. The  freight on heavy machinery is  more than the original cost and  everything else is in proportion.  Without a railway it is only the  exceptional properties that are  being worked. With a railway  the whole country would be opened, encouragement would be given  the prospector to search the  ledges whence came all this gold,  the laud would be cultivated aud  instead of SOO or 600 voters scattered over a large area, Cariboo  would have a federal member of  its own.  Some  Compensations.  The extent of Yale-Cariboo is  sufficient to appal a timid man,  but there are compensations. The  trip through Cariboo is well  worth the making*. It is au education in itself and no one can  make it without becoming a more  enthusiastic. British Columbian  and a better Canadian. The  writer feels grateful to its people  for their loyalty to the  Liberal  party and its great leader Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, for their enthusiastic support of his policy of  development, and above all for  their genuiuehospitality.

Notwithstanding the Russian-Japanese war meat continues to be much  cheaper than it was last year. Last  week stall fed steers sold in Seattle for  4 cents as' against 5J4 for the same  quality of beef last year. This difference in live weight makes a considerable difference in dressed beef. The  reduced price is quite general and the  cLiiitbinefs get the benefit. Should the  war continue and extensive railway  construction begin, the price will probably be increased.  It is now Judge Shaw. The McBride assessment act is not without its  compensating virtues. The assessment notices have brought a wealth of  complaints which must be adjudicated  upon at the various courts of revisions. The judges should be men of  tact, suavity, and a number of other  qualities necessary to soothe outraged  feelings and heal the rents in depleted  pocket books. H. C Shaw started out  this week on his mission of humanity.  H:'s jurisdiction extends from Rock  Creek to the Northern limit of Ok:-na-  gau riding.
