P. R. Rates.  Railway freight rates and a wagon  road to Skylark camp were the important subjects of discussion at the  regular monthly meeting of the Green-  wooe Board of Trade held Wednesday  afternoon. President DeVeber was in  the chair and among those present  G. R. Naden, C. R. Pittock, J. J.  Caulfield, D. C. McRae, J. R. Brown,  M. P. P., W. (r. Gaunce, T. M. Gulley,  W. M. Law, R. C. G. White, Robert  Wood, Julius Ehrlich and C. H. Fair.  M. Kane, Alex Robinson and A. S.  Black were a committee to interest the  board iu securing an appropriation for  a wagon road to Skylark camp.  Recently here has been much mining activity in this camp. There are  at least a dozen properties being developed including the E. P. U. mines,  the Gold Finch, the Mavos, the Bay,  the Silver Cloud, the Silver King and  several others.  Those who want to ^hip ore from some  of these high grade properties, cannot  do so until a wagon road is built. The  board- considered this matter and  Messrs. Naden Brown, Kane and  Gaunce wereappointed.a committee to  interview government agent McMynn  to urge upon him the nesessity of having this road constructed at the earliest possible date.  The question of preparing a memorial tc be presented to the railway  commission during its visit to British  Columbia was also considered and  Messrs. Caulfield, Gulley and W. T.  Hunter were appointed a committee to  go thoroughly into the. question of  freight rates and prepare the necessary���"-m"embrial~ if iritfieiFopinion the"  interests of the district demanded a  presentation of matters relative to  transportation to the commission.  TELEPHONE LINE  To be Built by Dominion Govern-  ment Through the Similkameen  In the supplementary estimates  brought down by the Dominion government is an appropriation of $13,500  to extend the Nicola telephone line to  Princeton, Hedley, Keremeos, Fair-  view and Pentiction. In the absence of  railway facilities and a telegraph line  this boon will be greatly appreciated  by the residents of the Similkameen,  partietila-ly those who are operating  mines in the district. A telephone  line was run from Kamloops to Nicola  about four years ago and it has proved  satisfactory in every way. Last winter  the .people of Similkameen and Nicola  petitioned for the extension of the line  and die Dominion government by  bringing down the vote referred to  have met the w'shes ofthe petitioners.  Great Northern Officials  Visit The   Boundary And   Rossland  Mines..*,      .; r-'  H. A, Jackson general passenger  agent of the Great'Northern at Spokane, and J. C. Eden of Seattle, western traffic manager of the same road  were in the city for a few hours on  Friday last. Interviewed at Rossland  by a Miner representative on their return Mr. Eden spoke encouragingly regarding the prospects of the Boundary  and Rossland.    The Miner said:  "Rossiand's outlook today is better  than I have ever seen it in ten years,"  said John C. Eden, of   St'tle,   yester-  ay. Mr. Eden is western general  freight traffic manger of the great  Northern system, and a Keen and conservative observer of all matters affecting his important cepartment. He  spent all day in Rossland and most of  the time among the mines. Ahorse  and afoot, the Great Northern official  covered many miles of Rossland territory yesterday, and at the close of  a hard day's work his comment on the  situation as he found it will be read  with much interest.  Mr. E-Jen left Settle ten days ago and  is now on his way home. Prior to  coming to Rossland he spent several  days in the Boundary, riding over the  line of the Great Northern extensions  now actively under construction. He  was accompanied bv H A. Jackson,  general freight and passenger asrent of  the Spokane Falls & Northern, and R,  C Morgan, general superintendent of  the same lines. Mr. Eden had his own  car and clerical staff along, while Mr.  Morgan's office car was also attached.  Mr. Jackson returned to Spokane yesterday morning, and Messrs. Eden and  Morgan spent the day busily here as  outlined.  "We expect to haul the ore mined in  the third and fourth levels of the  Granby mines, while the other fellows  will have the tonnage from the upper  workings. There is ample ore above  to satisfy them for twenty years."  This is what Mr. Eden says in respect  to ,the division of the ore haul from the  Granby mines at Phoenix. Just what  would be the outcome of the entry of  the Great Northern system into  Phoenix camp in competition with the  Canadian Pacific already installed has  been a moot question. Mr. Eden's  version seems to indicate that the companies believe there's business enough  for both lines, especially in view of the  probable increase in the smelter facilities at Grand Forks and consequent increase in tonnage from the mihesl  Mr. Eden says there are 1500 men at  work on the Great Noithern construction work, and that the line is being  extended rapidly. A line is also to be  built to Midway, presumably passing  the Boundary Falls smelter with ��� a  view to securing a share of the hauling  business to these works:  Death of Mr. Whiteside  Father of The Well Known Green  wood Barrister-  A. M. Whiteside, barrister of this  city)a~i-eceived^the.-'iiews=-of��� his-aged-  father's death shortly after leaving  here for New Westminster. The deceased was a native of Australia but  came to this province in the early days  of the gold rush to Cariboo. After the  gold excitement he settled in New  Westminister where he resided ever  since. He had been ailing for sometime previous to his death. He was 85  years of age and leaves in addition to  his son here a widow and a daughter  living at the family residence in the  Royal city.

EISA  Of High Grade   Ore���Work on The  Spokane.  A big strike has been made on the  Silver Cloud in Skylark camp. The  property was recently bonded lo Alex  Robinson, J. Johnson, J. McCreath  and L. A. Smith. Messrs. Robinson  and Johnson went to work on the  claim and soon uncovered a vein of  high grade ore, assays running over  $100 to the ton were secured. With  further work the vein widened out  until, now there is 12 inches of solid  ore and yesterday a sample taken from  the vein assayed $183.27 to the- ton.  The force has been increased and it is  the intention to prosecute the work of  development until the mine is placed  on a shipping basis.  Lt;*4-djoining the Silver; Cloud is' ithe  Silver King recently bonded by M.  Kane and-associates. They started to  work on the property yesterday and as  the Silver Cloud workings adjoin the  Silver King the bonders feel assured  that they will get t-lic sam;,; lead on  their property.  Geo.

JULY 29  1904  EAST KOOTENAY LICENCES  We understand that the applicants for coal and oil lands in  East Kootenay are still without  th eir licences. - Some month s ago,  the government announced that  those desirous of securing licences to prospect for coal and oil  could have the same by paying a  double fee and they would have  to fight among themselves to  determine their rights to land  staked more than once. Whatever this licence is worth has  been denied those who are interested in East Kootenay. Possibly Robt. F. Green the brilliant  chief commissioner, and equ?lly  brilliant premier are too busy to  sign the necessary licences. They  have the money. After all that  is the most important matter.  So long as the government can  get sufficient money to keep the  province out of the hands of the  sheriff and pay salaries and expenses of ministerial jaunts, the  poor prospector can wait.  In the meantime the friends of  the government are not idle.  Those who stand in with the  government including a certain  member of parliament are particularly active in connection  with the East Kootenay lands.  Possibly the government is waiting until they have strengthened  their position and outstaked the  other fellow before issuing the  licences.  In the meantime the bonafide  prospector is getting it in the  neck. He went in there, discovered the country and spent  his all in prospecting. When he  has  a chance  to interest capital  in his holdings his plans are  frustrated by the acts of incompetent ministers who are still  listening to the voice of the  grafter.  EXIT DUNDONALD  Lord Dundonald has been recalled by the Imperial authorities  and the hot headed nobleman  will now have an opportunity of  explaning his j) fiery partizan ��� utterances. In'**'taking an offensively active part in the politics of  this country the noble .Lord  violated army rules which are  supposed to regulate the conduct  of the patrician officer as well as  the plebeian "Tommy Atkins "  His conduct was not only a breach  of army regulations but was also  in bad taste. His Lordship deprecated the lack at etiquette at  Ottawa, but what will be said of  a nobleman who accepted, an ; invitation from a non-political committee in Toronto' and in reply to  an address which had no politics  in it, devoted his whole time to a.  bitter tirade against the Laurier  government. ' Liberals and conservatives alike joined to give  Lord Dundonald au enthusiastic  reception in recognition of his  brilliant career as a soldier. He  turned the meeting into a bitterly  partizan one. .We must confess  ignorance of the code which regulates the conduct of present  day lords but in his Toronto  exhibition Lord Dundonald demonstrated that to the etiquette  which regulates the condvct of  public men on both sides of political life in this country, he is a  stranger.  A BRILLIANT SCHEME  Hon. Richard McBride is no  mere politican, he is a statesman.  Everybody in this province recognizes this important fact and  it is beginning to dawn upon the  slower men of the east. Even  Mr. Hayes, the president of the  Grand Trunk Pacific appreciates  the fact that if this national project is to be a success he must  make peace with the people's  Dick. Tt is rather a singular fact  that among the great men in the  west Mr. McBride should stand  alone in his violent opposition to  the Grand Trunk Pacific project.  The only w ay to account for this  is by admitting the fact that the  genius of statesmanship is sometimes erratic. Of course if the  project is to be a success Mr. McBride's opposition must be removed. It would be impossible  to finance the scheme in the  money markets of the world if  brilliant statesman should violently oppose it. Mr. Hayes  knows that a Tory statesman  will take kindly to land grants  and cash subsidies. While he  always violently opposes even'  railway enterprise which asks  nothing but the right to build,  he is always fouud boosting the  scheme that includes a big land  grant and a cash subsidy. The  Tory statesman is particularly  enamored of a land grant. It  affords such a splendid opportun  ity for the reward of party friends  in the manipulation of townites  and in so many other directions  too numerous to mention. So  Mr. Hayes hit upon a happy  plan to remove Mr. McBride's  opposition. Although the Grand  Trunk Pacific company is under  a 5,000,000 dollar cash bond to  complete the road to the Pacific  coast within a specified time and  although the provisions of the  agreement with the Dominion  government will be carried out,  the Grand Trunk president has  decided to ask Premier McBride  for a land grant of 10,000 acres  a mile. With such an application  the scheme immediately commands itself to Tory statesmen  and Tory newspapers. The  Victoria Colonist which was  frothing at the mouth in its  violent opposition to the scheme,  is now rather inclined to the view  that it would not oppose a land  grant and Premier McBride.no  longer shies when the provisions  of the enterprise are presented  for his very earnest consideration.  If one is not lost in his admiration of Mr. Hayes' astuteness, he  becomes completely bewildered  when he considers Premier McBride's statesmanship.  .The Lillooet by-election will  take place on August 15th. A..  McDonald the ex-member is again  the conservative candidate. He  will be opposed by D. Stoddart  who represented Lillooet for  several years in the legislature.  ^mmoTmTOTO  Conservates are now abusing  the Imperial government because  Lord Dundonald has been recalled, thus destroying their one  issue in the approaching campaign.  Evidently the Russian bear is  anxious to get into more troub'.e.  He is likely to be accommodated.  He Deserved Pity  His suffering* from Sciatica was so  great, but thanks to Nerviline he was  cured. "I suffered for three years  from sciatica" writes E. S. Jenkins of  Porland, " and no man ever suffered  more. I spent a small fortune on different remedies out the only one with  real merit was Nerviline. I used a few  bottles of Neriline and was perfectly  cured. I can recommed Nerviline as a  sure cure for sciatica; it's excellent  also" for" rheum a t i sni " a h d "neural g*i a.''

I can recommed Nerviline as a  sure cure for sciatica; it's excellent  also for rheumatism and neuralgia."  Try Nerviline, 25c. For sale at  Thamas Drug Co.  Granby  Mines   Mother Lode   B. C.

Cosgrove, Secretary and  manager of the Spokane Interstate  Fair, which this yeir is held October  3 to 9, has left Spokane and gone east  after special attractions to put on at  the fair this year. This is the first  time the Spokane Fairs have taken the  trouble to send a man east to select  these attractions, which are so important to the jollity and success of the  Fair. In other years the Fair has  booked its attractions as best it could,  from circulars and second hand reports. Excellent selections have at  times been made in this way and nt  the same* time some very poor turns  alto have been chosen.  Mr. Cosgrove i.s just the man to send  on this mission, rather than to delegate the important task to some one  else. Mr. Cosgrove has been in the  exposition business all his life and  knows just what attracts Ihe people.  He is so well acquainted with the  vaudeville profession that, he doubtless  will lie able to drive good bargains for  the Spokane Fair, as well as pick out  much better attractions than have been  had in the past.  And the interesting part nf it is,  these attractions are to be free iu front  of the new grandstand, and not oil" in  some sideshow, where extra charges  will be made to see them.  Mr. Cosgrove will visit the Dominion of CanadaExposition at Winnipeg,  which is one of the biggest Fairs in  America, and he will visit the Minnesota State Fair, which is one of the big  Fairs of the middle states.

A telegram to that effect was  despatched on July 18:  "Under section 175, sub-section 1 of  the Army Act, officers of the regular  force on the active list, within the  meaning of the royal warrant for  regulating pay and of promotion, of  the regular force are subject to military  law.

Rowland Machin the popular western manager for Bennett's fuse and  Holman's drill has returned to' the  *coast's\fter an extensive visit through'  the interior of the province. To a*  . Victoria Times reporter he spoke encouragingly of the outlook in Kootenay and the Bounpary. He said that  there is cause for congiatulation on  the part of everyone who takes the  slightest interest in the welfare of the  province; .and   espcially   in   that   in-  . .dustrial backbone, mining. To a  Time reporter this morning he com-  ���nien ted on the striking changes which  the-past few years have produced. In  the place of one'smelter "in the Kootenay regions there were, he pointed  "'Out. t'he.Trail, Hall Mines, Granby  -Gpeenwood' and Boundary Palls  smelters, and tributary to Rossland,  and almost entirely supplied from its  ���mines, the Northport smelter   on   the  ���A  other side.  '*. But the,development of the country  ' has progessed in' others directions.  There is an abundance of vegetables,  and small fruits are produced in large  quantities,* while the numerous handsome gardens demonstrate that lovely  flowers of all kinds can be grown in  the upper country. The'many sawmills from <sne end of the Kootenays to  the other attest the country's worth in  timber. The development of the coal  interests is absolutely stupendous.   In  ���- fact, Mr. Machin asserts, that mining  .. to-day is on a better footing than ever  ' in the history of the prqyince. .There  exists none of the usual evidence of  a boom, but the tendency .upwards is  steady and progressive. In the Boundary district, besides two large low-  grade productive mines there is abundant evindence to show that the near  future must bring to the front a   large  '- number of high grade small properties,  which from their nature must be work  ed by small individual companies.  Two of these high-grade prospects, the  Helen and Barbara, are just now.showing high rvalues, while . the present  .^railrpadjnovement on the part' of the  Great Northern undoubtedly means  more than the present would   seem   to  . , Jndicte for the future development of  that highly mineralized belt. -The  near future will develop railroad communication with the Upper West fork  of Kettle river, where coal, and other  metels are aJready known') to exist.  The question of transportion for the  whole of this npper country and  Smilkameen is one that will demand  from some sqjt*rce, whether it be that  of the;.C. P. R. or; .Great Northern,  immediate' attention. A company  controlling the Nickel Plate and other  contiguous properties at Hedley must  surely in the near future have a railroad outlet, and it were a pity that our  own    people    should    not    take   the  ^���-tmitiative.^The���smaller--- roads,- projected from Midway to "Vernon, undoubtedly will become a part and  parcel of a system controlled by one or  other of the large railroad companies.

Politicians in Cariboo  Meetings .Held at   Barkerville  And  Quesnel.  Special correspondence of the Inland Sentinel  Last week Barkerville had on an old.  time appearance; there were so many  people in the town from all over the  district as well as from mole distant  places. I am more than pleased that  business called me there at that time,'  for in addition to thd assizes, important enough in themselves, there was  another attraction in the shape of the  presence of .Premier McBride and  Attorney-General WiUon. Anothi-r  noled lawyer in attendance at the assizes and not there, like the others just  named, for political ends, was Joseph  Martin. Denis Murphy, of Ashcroft!  Oscar Bass, a young man whom Mr.  Wilson is training as a lawyer and  whom he totes about the country at  the expense of the people; and the Conservative candidate for Yale-Cariboo,  Mr. Burrill, were also on hand. You  can therefore imagine, Mr.-Editor, how  tickled I was to find myself* in Barkerville on such an auspicious occasion as  the gathering together in that remote  town of so much legal talent and so  many strenuous politicians.  The business of the assizes was important and took some time to dispose  of. The principal cases were the Kelly  murder case, in which the .Indian  woman Amelia was acquitted and the  light senten-ie of.onelyear passed upon  Saul, who was found guilty of manslaughter; and the case of Beaton and  Blair against the B. iC. Express Co ,  in which the jury awarded a verdict  forthe plaintiff for $2,030 and costs.  Joseph Martin for the compady and  Charles Wilson and H. H. Narraway  fof"~the"'~plaintiffs." In ~thTr~burglafy  case against Louie Tsan, the young  lawyer Bass was given the case for  the crown. The Chinaman got nine  months.  But the greatest enjoyment I had  was at the big political meeting in the  theatre. There was a good attendance  and S. A. Rogers was chairman. Mc-  Br.ide took part and so did Wilson, and  of course M. Burrill had a say. It was  amusing to hear Mr. Wilson tell how  hard a man Tatlow, the Finanse Minister, is to get money out of. He  couldn't even get S10 for a special constable ! There was not any difficulty  apparently, however, in finding money  to take Oscar Bass along to conduct  little cases, and pay him $100 a month  and his expenses. Bass seems a nice  sort of young man and did very well.  Denis Murphy took the. platform on  behalf of the Liberals, and in a vigorous speech loyally supported the candidature of Duncan Ross, the Liberal  candidate. He made ***��� number of  capital points at the expense of his  conservative opponents . and ridiculed  the idea of tho "grand old party," the  Conservatives, who had so long fought  against everything in the shape of,*  government ownership now posing as  its devoted advocates, Mr. Murphy met  with a hearty reception and his remarks were lovdly applauded.

He had nothing definite to announce  regarding the Midway-Greenwood  line.  The ball game last Sunday between  Greenwood and Phoenix resulted in  the home team winning by a score of  4 to 6. In the first innings Phoenix  piled up four runs and the Greenwood  boys shut them out every innings afterwards. Good playing on both sides  was very much in evidence throughout  the game.  Thomas Price, postmaster at Fife,  died suddenly en Saturday last and  was buried in Grand Forks cemetery.  Mr. Price was born near Cornwall,  Ont., and leaves a family of six  children.  C. M.
