 -.���-c'rSMirFT-"!  ��.- . ���������  &  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY   JULY 31.  1903.  No. 49  District Rich in Mineral Wealth and Agricultural Possibilities^^Several Promising Mining Camps Awaiting  Transportation Facilities^'Farms of the Valley and Anarchist Mountain.  Mining development travels west  ward in British Columbia. Ten years  ago the banner canip of the province  was the silvery Sloean; a few years  later it was golden Rossland; today it  is the boundless Boundary. Ten years  from today it will be the Similkameen.  This prophesy does not imply that the  Boundary will wane, nor that its output will decrease, but the Similkameen  electoral district* has been endowed  by nature with all that go to make an  attractive field for the investor and the  miner. A wonderful variety of mineral  resources, rich agricultural lands, the  best grazing lands in the province and  a climate that cannot be surpassed in  either summer or winter, combine to  give the Similkameen district advantages hot possessed by other favored  sections of the province. Following  out the policy of the past it lias been  shamefully neglected for no visible  reason-lpther than its e icouiagement  and development would mean much to  the province. The men who lived in  the Boundary in the early davs can  well remember the anathemas that  were hurled against governments and  others because everything possible was  done tpvretard development in this district and frustrate the efforts* of: those  who had confidence in its resources and  were anxious to encourage, development. . Simiikameen is in a similar  position today, but Siniilkaiueen intends volitig right at the first opportunity, and Similkameen will remember the conduct of certain Conservatives in tlie late legislature who successfully balked J. J. Hill in his efforts  to build a railway through the district.  A   RETROSPECT.  It is now nearly six years since the  writer made his first trip through the  eastern portion of the Similkameen  district. There was a Provincial  Liberal convention to be held at New  Westminster and the Boundary had to  be represented. The duly accredited  - delegate ,^to�� that^convention^was^.the  Grit editor and he went traveling by  stage to Penticton, and returning via  the Osoyoos valley an<i Sidley.  L:ist week another trip was made  through the Similkameen aud the  mission was a political one. Changes  were noted in the six years, but outside  of the settlement of the rich bench  lands, the development was not nearly  so great as was confidently expected  six years ago.  camp m'kinnhy.  Camp McKinney changed but Utile  in six years. The Cariooo and Hughie  Cameron were there in 1897 and they  are still there in 1903. Time has not  dealt harshly with either. The Cariboo is still grinding out dividends for  its owners, and Hughie is as genial  and active a host ;is ever. But Camp  McKinney shows sigus of improvement'.^ The Waterloo is now working  steadily; its mill is running satisfactorily, and the shareholders will soon  be rewarded. McKinney is a camp of  jjreabpossibilities. The ore bodies are  there, the values are there, and had the  wild catter left the camp a'one a few  yearsTago it would have been in much  bettershape today. But the camp is  now on a solid basis. The day of the  stock jobber is past and the legitimate  miner has taken his place.  I'AIKVrEW.  Fairview is another camp that is  justj-ecoveiiig from the effects of too  much boom and too much wild catting.  Six years ago Tinhorn stoct, par value  25 cents, was selling for SI.70; other  stock in proportion. Six years ago a  new townsite was placed on the market  and a magnificent hotel erected to help  the sale of lots. Tinhorn is now a  thing of the past;-the big hotel was de  stroyed by fire; the wild catter has  taken to the woods and Fairview is now  a solid little mining camp. Up the  gulch, two miles above the town, the  Stemwinder mill is running day and  night. The ore is said to be low grade,  but admits of profitable treatment  under the present management. There  are other properties that are equally  promising and the outlook for Fairview  was never more satisfactory than at the  present time.  KEREMEOS  It is a steep climb over the mountain  that divides the Okanagan from the  Similkameen, but it is well worth the  trip to see the glorious valley of the  Similkameen. It is a veritable garden  spot. Frank Richter, R. L. Cawston  and others have beautiful homes in the  valley. In their orchards fruits that  are supposed to thrive only in the  sunny south will mature and ripen.  On Mr. Richter's farm men were busy  cutting a 100-acre field of alfalfa.  There is nothing particularly remarkable about harvesting 100 acres of  alfalfa were it not for the fact that this  was the second crop. About the' end  of May a big crop was taken from the  same field aud in September a third  crop will be cut;' A fourth could be cut  later on in the'fall, bat Mr. Richter  would rather Lhat his big herd of cattle  should do the work! Mr. Richter built  a magnificent home some years ago  where he and his family enjoy every  comfort.  Such a valley must have its town,  and the Similkameen is not backward  in this respect. Keremeos is not yet a  city, but it is the neucleus of one.  There is a couple of stores and a hotel  kept by James Reith, well known in  Greenwoo.l aud Trail; a blacksmith  shop and n.everal other places of business. Besides the farming settlement  surrounding it there is a promising  mining country adjacent. Ollala,  made famous by the advertising of the  Ollala M^��ing_cMipany^s only five  miies distant. The mines are now  making an effort to catch up to the big  things said about them in the New  York papers. The advertisements are  away in the lead, but recent showings  on some of the company's properties  will convince even the most skeptical  that all the virtue in the Ollala company's properties is not in printer's ink.  HKDI.KY CITY.  Twenty-five   miles   up the Similkameen valley from Keremeos is Hedley  City.    Hedley City   is the only really  busy town in the Similkameen.    About  three   years ago M. K. Rogers, representing the Marcus   Daly   estate   and  other'Montana capitalists, secured  the  Nickel I'late mine, which is situated at  the summit of a mountain that stands  over   4000 feet almost perpendicularly  ahove Hedley City���at least it looks as  if   a   right   anglr  were formed by the  mountain side and  the   Hedley   town-  site, but it is not quite that bad since a  trail switchbacks on the mountain side  and after hours of hard  climbing one  can reach the Nickel Plate.   The writer  rode up that hill and the trail  appeared  ati   interminable   distance.    There   is  nothing  more heartbreaking   than  a  switchback trail on a steep mountain  side.    After an hour steady  traveling  it looked as if a stone could  be  easily  thrown  into Hedley  City.    Time and  a good horse finally conquered  the hill  and the Nickel Plate mine was reached.  The owners of the Nickel Plate are not  doing much talking.    Three years' development work has demonstrated that  they hirve a mine of sufficient  merit to  justify au expenditure of over a million  dollars in the construction of a tramway  to   Hedley   City,   in tho  erection of a  mammoth   mill  at this point,   in   the  construction of n flume  from   Twenty-  Mile creek for water power with which  they intend generating sufficient electricity to run mill, tramway and mine;  and later in the erection of a' smelter  to treat concentrates and refractory  ore. The management is still disinclined to talk for publication. Sufficient  information was secured, however, to  make another article.  So much work going on naturally  makes Hedley a*busy point. There are  excellent stores, good hotels, and comfortable residences. Many old time  Greenwood faces may be seen there.  Jim Bruce, who was a busy carpenter  in Greenwood in the early days, is now  working in the shop at the Nickel  Plate mill. Finlay Fraser, another  well known Greenwood carpenter, is  also employed on the mill, and several  of the miners who used to work in  Boundary mines are now working at  the Nickel Plate. Hedley is a good  town and is sure'to girow.  , Coming, down the trail, the writer ran  into the Gladdin boys and J. N. Paton,  who are developing some claims on  Nickel Plate hill. They intend remaining in the district until October. Tillman & Macdonald, both well known in  the Boundary, are.supplying the company with all the lumber and-have' a  mill five miles up the river.  PRINCETON.  From Hedley City the country  changes. The Similkameen river  comes down at a rapid rate from the  rapidly ascending country until when  Princeton is reached the precipitous  mountains become low rolling hills.  Princeton, which is 25 miles from  Hedley City, is easily tha* most picturesque spot in south eastern British  Columbia. Splendidly situated at the  confluence of the Tulameen, with the  Similkameen, it has surrounding it a  mining and agricultural district that  will make it a commercial metropolis.  But Princeton , feels governmental  neglect more than any of the other  towns.^Tt .w.as-a.growing^town^three  years ago. Mine owners on Copper  and Kennedy mountains went vigorously to work, confident that it was  only a question of a short time until  the railway would cotne. Discouraged  and disheartened by hope deferred  many left the district and Princeton  suffered. The big bodies of copper ore  are there; the agricultural possibilities  are there, aud when the railway does  come Princeton will be a busy, bustling  town and a delightful place to live in.  Its citizens are now living a strenuous  life manfully facing adverse conditions,  but nothing can destroy the bright  future in store for their town.  Twelve miles further on is Granite  creek, of early placer fame, and which  is again coming to the front on account  of the recent discoveries of rich quartz.  The trip homeward along the Similkameen cannot be surpassed anywhere  iu this province, famous for its scenic  grandeur. The Indian reservations, it  is true, comprise the best of the agricultural lands, but occasional farms  cultivated by white men demonstrate  the possibilities of this beautiful valley.  OSOYOOS   VAIAEY.  An eight mile trip over the mountain  brings one* again to the Okanagan  valley and Osoyoos lake is soon  reached. The tired traveler misses old  man Kruger's cheery voice and his  hearty "I am delighted to see you.  My wife and I were just speaking  about you." Poor old Kruger has gone  for good. He has crossed the great  divide and Osoyoos lake knows him no  more. Mr. McBoyle and wife, who are  well known on the West Fork and Camp  MoKiuney, have reopened the old  Kruger place and make travelers comfortable, but the place is not the same  forty years kept open house for those  who traveled via Osoyoos lake. And  there will soon be other changes on  Osoyoos lake. *lt was lucky for old  man Kiuger that he reached Osoyoos  over forty years ago or he would never  have secured a site for his hotel. Every  other acre of land is or vvas owned by  Thomas Ellis, the cattle king. Years  ago the sovereignty of the district was  divided between Mr. Ellis and Judge  Haines, but with the death of thejudge  his lands were acquired by Mr. Ellis  and he became sole monarch of all he  surveyed. There is room in the  Okanagan valley for 100 families, but  today Ellis' cattle roam at will through  the valley'and along the fertile moun  tain sides. It is the same old story  over again. People ask what is the  matter with British Columbia? The  answer to a large extent can be found  in the fact that large stretnhes of arable  lands are held by individuals who do  not toil and who under careless governments and bad systems of taxation  can live and thrive withouttoiling.  Happily so far as the Ellis estate is  concerned this will soon be changed.  ;An English syndicate, represented by  Leslie Hill, who at one time ,was connected with the.syndicate,owning: the  Jewel mine, has purchased the entire  estate for $400,000. F is the intention  of the syndicate to construct a large  irrigation ditch which will carry water  to the rich sandy loam land in the  valley. The big acreage will be  divided into small fruit farms and industrious farmers can purchase upon  easy terms. Shou.d this syndicate  offer liberal terms it is safe that the  Okanagan valley will soon be a  thriving settlement.  ANARCHIST   MOUNTAIN.  A twelve mile climb up a hot sand  hill brings one to Anarchist mountain.  The name is a misnomer. The man  who called this spot such a name should  have had penal servitude for life,  "Aiiarchist mountaiiiTfor bjTthis awful  name it must be known until its people  rise in their might and demand that  they be no longer libelled, is another  illustration of the remarkable fertility  of British Columbia soil and saLubrity  of its climate. Situated 4800 feet above  the sea level the mountain, or rather  plateau, is covered with well tilled  farms, and not small farms either���  R. G. Sidley, J. P., has at least 400  acres under crop,, while others are also  growing big crops. Six years ago  there were only a few farmers on the  mountain; today the whole mountain  is practically under cultivation. The  slope towards Rock Creek is also under  cultivation and peopled wilh prosperous  farmers. On this side of the divide is  found Gillespie's hotel, kept by Mr. and  Mrs. Gillespie, an old couple upon  whom time has evidently no effect.  The old man is in his 8+th year, but he  is still as "chipper" as a man of 50.  It is so healthy on the mouutain that  the people sometimes quarrel among  themselves but they never die.  Further on towards Rock Creek A.  D. McLennan, who used to be a resident of Greenwood, has one of the best  farms in the district. He has a large  acreage of growing grain, aud as he is  within reasonable distance of a good  market at Greenwood the prospects * of  his making a small fortune out of  farming are bright.  Of the Similkameen district there is  little left but the West Fork country.  Its mineral richness has often been described in these columns and the outrageous treatment accorded it has been  often criticized. This article is already  too long and it is closed with the prophesy that as Ihe Similkameen is sure  to   join    other    interior    districts   in  government���a government who will  encourage the miner and the farmer;  in fact will encourage all industry���a.  government who believes in free trade  in railways and who believes ho obstacles should be placed in the way of  the development of a district rich in  natural resources; a government forthe  people and not for corporati ms---with  such a government the Similkameea  district will soon take first rank as a  producer of mineral wealth and as the  home of a numerous contented and  prosperous people.  Printers Walk Out  Last Sunday night the printers employed on the Spokane Review and its  side graft, the Evening Chronicle,  walked out. The trouble has been  brewing since the beginning of the  year. Cowl'es, the owner, wanted to  employ non-union machine operators,  foreman to be non-union, an unlimited  number of apprentices, proof readers  to be non-union, and the abolition of  I T. U. law relating to extra work.  The scale to be $3.50 for day and $4 ior  night. Eight hours to constitute a  day's work. The printers demanded  ��4.50 for day. aud $5 for night." The c  Review is,- and always :has been, an  enemy of organized labor. There was  no Review Monday morning; but  .Tuesday tbe printers went to worfc'  under a truce, by orders from-headquarters of I. T. U.���the new scale of  wages to be paid temporarily. Cowles,  the owner of the Review, would hire  Chinamen to get out his unfair sheet,  if he could get thein.  Successful Excursion  The Eagles' excursion to Curlew lake  last Sunday was a success in every way.  Greenwood aerie held up the reputation  of their city by sending out the largest  delegation front this side of the line.  The Greenwood citizens' band was in  attendance-and-added-greatly-to-the -  success of the picnic. About 500 people  were on the grounds and all thoroughly  enjoyed themselves. Dancing, fishing  and bathing were the chief attractions.  The baloon ascension of Professor  Williams of Phoenix and the acrobatic  performance of Professor Nelson were  very much appreciated bv the good  natured excursionists. In short the  Eagles of the five aeries who participated are ,ve*y well pleased over the  grand succesa of the picnic. Everr-  body had a good time ant1 the best yf  order was strictly maintained. .  without the big hearty German who for I securing for this  province   a   Liberal  Liberal Associations  Liberal association* were recently  organized at the Nickel Plate mine and  Princeton as well as Camp McKinney.

WHOLESALE BURIAL  Referring* to the Liberal nominee in  the Greenwood riding* the Boundary  Creek Times says: "Brown is in'town,  arid Brown will be very, much in town  on the evening* of October 31." There  is every^probability-lhat-Brown--will  have no particular reason to leave town  after the date specified by our contemporary. The Conservative nominee is  the man who will make ihe journey to  Victoria.���Kossland Miner.  Why send the remains of the  defeated Torv candidate to  Victoria ?     Decent   sepulture could  .be .secured   nearer  home.     Has  John   Houston   arranged    for   a  modest figure with Charley Hay-  ward to bury al 1 the Tory  dead ?  .It will be ,'<\ heavy   undertaking-  contract and the price  should   be  ���correspondingly low.    In  Greenwood  the Conservative  nominee  will   lie. so  badly  snowed  under  that it will be au almost hopeless  lat-k to lind the remains.    While  ''Brown will be'i:i town and receiving ...the   congratulations   of   his  mail}' friends on   the  evening  of  .October .31st, .his   Conservative  ���appouent. will   be buried under-  ''neath'nu avalanche of votes.  make known those needs and insist upon justice being- done this  sadly neglected district. ' With  the Liberals unitedly working  for the unanimous choice of a  representative convention, they  are sure of electing a man who  will be a, credit to the Liberal  party and a worth}' representative  of a very important district.  RIGHT,  YOU ARE.  Editor Race in the Rossland  Miner (Conservative) says: There  are corporation influences within  the Conservative party that are  trying to the best of their abilities  to keep the prospector and the  common people out of their just  and unquestionable rights and  dispose of the East Kootenay coal  lauds, now vested in the crown, for  the sole, benefit of the C. P. R. or  theCfow's Nest coal monopoly.  Since going to Hadley City,  Alaska, Paul Johnson has secured  a handle to his name. In the  Ketchikan (Alaska) Mining  Journal he is mentioned several  times as Dr. Paul Johnson, a man  of wide experience in the building  and operation of smelting works.  If he had gone to Kentucky he  might have been a general or a  colonel.  "A GOOD CANDIDATE  . The, Liberals of Similkameen  ���made a wise; choice in; the selec-  tion-of W. J. Snodgrass as their  standard bearer. Mr. Snodgrass  has had considerable experience  in public affairs; he has an intimate knowledge of the needs of  the district and he has the necessary ability and determination to  The Biitish thought molders  arrived in Quebec last Friday.  After being wined aud dined in  Ontario the}* will take a trip  through Manitoba, the Northwest Territories and British  Columbia. They purpose visiting the Boundary, and will give  their impressions of the mines in  this district to the British press.  The Roblin government of  Manitoba was sustained at the  polls last week by an increased  majority. Roblin promised good  crops and high prices if returned,  and the innocent farmer believed  him ahd voted accordingly.  At Cumberland, last Saturday,  P. Little, one of Czar Dunsmuir's  managers, was fined S25and costs  for employing Chinese, contrary  to law. This is ' the lirst conviction under the act and means  a great deal to the striking miners  at Cumberland. The Chinese  must go���out of the mines.  John Keen of Kaslo while a  Conservative was considered: by'  that party an able and influential  gentleman. Because he quit the  old party on account of its inconr  sistencies and enlisted with the  Liberals he . is dubbed by those  same mental lightweight Tories  as a "know nothing."  Chief Justice Killam of Manitoba succeeds the late Jiu.ge  Armour on the supreme court  bench. Killam is the first judge  of the supreme court coming- from  ^est of lake Superior. It was  thought that Chief Justice Hunter  of.British Columbia would get the  appointment.  Everything: in Presents  to please young: and old.  We carry a large stock  the year round.  Books.

So far this month only  eleven have been lynched. At  this rate the nigger will soon become like the buffalo���extinct.  The department of labor at  Ottawa has decided to offer its  services to mediate between the  Canada Foundry company and its  employees in the strike going on  in Toronto. No; the Liberals do  not try to help the workingman.  It's the other felknvs.  John L. Retallack will oppose  Hon. R. F. Green in the Kaslo  riding. Retallack was Green's,  "opponent four years ago. The  Conservatives in this riding are  badly split, and the chances of the  cabinet minister being defeated  are good.  Harry Wright, Conservative of  Nelson, wants to go- into the  member of .parliament business;  but he cannot find a riding to run  for. Harry is a good fellow; but  in brains he only carries a trace.  F. J. Deane has been unanimously nominated by the Liberals  of Kamloops electoral district.^  Sir.

Ralph W. Trotter is a Baptist  minister. He used to be an orthodox  Baptist minister, but he moved from  Victoria to Graud Forks. The "hot  air" of Grand Forks has its effect upon  individuals and Baptist preachers are  not exempt. Rev. Ralph W. left Grand  Forks a short time ago for the effete  east; but it is evident that he has not  yet recovered from the effects of Grand  Forks "hot air." He preached a sermon in St. John, B. B., a few Sundays  ag-o. The sermon referred briefly to  Gideon and his three hundred God-  chosen men, but the greater part was  very thrilling* and equally exaggerated  tales of the wild and woolly west. The  sermon was doubtless interesting to  the sober Baptists of St. John, and  possibly a Baptist preacher who  roughed it in the west is not supposed  to adhere strictly to the truth. The  following extract from a report in the  Amherst (N. S.) News-Gazette, will give  the people of the Boundary a good idea  of the kind of sermons Ralph W.  Trotter is preaching in the east:  As a scriptural illustration Mr. Trotter told of an instance in his own career  in the wild west when a camp of Godless miners and foreigners refused to  hear him preach in a little shack-group  near Kettle river, where he was  stationed.  "You needn't come to preach to us,"  said the leader of the camp in a surly  voice  Mr. Trotter smiled and said he  thought he would try it nevertheless.  So he started out to the camp one  day. On' his way he came across a  little tot about three miles from camp.  She had cut her foot on a sharp stone  and was crying. A tiny brother accompanied her.  Mr. Trotter dismounted, aud after  bathing the foot in a brook nearby,  lifted the children to his saddle and  proceeded to the forbidden settlement,  setting the children down at their own  cabin door.  That evening when he got up to  preach, all the miners were there to give  him a hot reception. They first politely  told the "sky pilot" they would not  listen to him and that he had better get  oiit before there was trouble.  To this the young clergyman only  smiled and started to give his gospel  talk.  A chorus of cat calls followed, the  crowd growing ugly. Just then a burly  fellow stalked into the shack, and above  the din of the disapproval shouted:  .''//'Lookit hyar, boys, that young feller's goin' to talk, See?''  "Who says so?" came back the snarling chorus.  "I say so," said the big fellow, patting two big pistols in his belt. Then  he told about the child and the cut foot,  which child was his own.  "That big fellow," said Mr. Trotier  to the congregation, "is one of my  deacons in that settlement, and his  saloon is now the Baptist church, and  what's more, all those ugly fellows are  members ot it."  Now, that incident is well worth a  place in a Sunday school book; but  rdally it is difficult for the people of the  Boundary to understand why a saloon  should be used as a Baptist church  since there are so many splendid  edifices, whose only usefulness at  gresent.is_a_silentr.butieloquent^ tribute  to Mr. Trotter's missionary zeal. Besides big fellows don't go round with  two big pistols in their belt in this  district. It is a beautiful story and  must have impressed the fish-eaters ���  but Dear, Good Old Ralph should take  the precaution to see that his sermons  are not reported.

DEALERS IN FRUITS, COFFECTIONERY  ETC.  ICE CREAM PARLORS  Mr. McAllister, superintendent of  the Greenwood smelter, is having as.  much quiet fun with his overthrown  s noke stack as Flaherty had with the  piano he won in the raffle at Mul-  vaney's. When the boys brought the  "insthrunient" to Flaherty's cabin  with much striving and hard labor, the  great size of the piano and the small  dimensions of the door and the solitary  window brought the* proceedings to a  standstill. But some one discovered a  a trap door in the roof, which was  speedily enlarged, and by means of a  rope with the ''insthrument" at one  end half the population of the village  at the other end, the piano began its  journej' into the palace cf its proud  owner. It reached the roof all right,  but when the lowering began the rope  parted. Very few saw its landing, but  everybody heard it when it struck the  earth except old Misther Rafferty, and  he had been deaf as a stone for twenty  years. There vvas never any music hi,  it in the years that followed, but  Flaherty consoled himself with the  knowledge that it -'wint in far aisier  afther the accidiut."  Mr. McAllister saved a bit of his big  stove pipe, 50 feet of it, six feet in  diameter where it was made round  again, and six tons in weight. The  mountain side, the railroad track and  the high brick pedestal on which the  stack must stand left him little room  for working, bat he got up a big pole,  well guyed with stanch pulleys, put a  huge chain around the stack, and with  far more power than Flahertj-'s united  force could boast started up his pipe.  It rose splendidly, almost like Santos  Dumont's flying machine, until it was  about on a level with the top of the  brickwork, when the chain" broke and  the huge pipe came to earth, with no  "dull, sickening thud," but with a far  greater noise than that famous piano  emitted in its new home. Only a huge  rock at its foot where it fell saved it  fjom rolling down the hillside and  mixing things up generally. Such  thin:;s have a tendency to make a man  doubt the strength of material things,  and now, we understand, Mr.  McAllister is adding to the strength of  his derrick, multiplying his iron slings,  taking out accident insurance policies,  and preparing power enough to move a  mountain. If he will only let us know  w.hen he will try again to send up his  baloon we all will either climb his  heights to see,it or train our telescopes  or binoculars upon the smelter heights;'  Later.���The smokestack has been  hoisted into pla.ee and Mr. McAllister  is happy.

The uniform success of this remedy  has made it the most popular preparation in use for bowel complaints. It  is everywhere recognized as the one  remedy that can always be depended  upon and that is pleasant to take. It  is especially valuable for summer diarrhoea in children and is undoubtedly  the means of saving the lives of a great  many children each year. For sale by  J. L. White, Greenwood and A. F.

[From the Sentinel, Gebo, Mont.]  In the first opening of Oklahoma to  settlers in 1889, the editor of this paper  was iraonfj the many seekers after  fortune who made the big race one fine  day in April. During his travelling  about and afterwards his camping  upon his claim, he encountered much  bad water, which, together with the  severe heat, gave him a very severe  diarrhoea which it seemed almost impossible to check, and along in June  the case became so bad he expected to  die. One day one of his neighbors  brought him one small bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  remedy as a last hope. A big dose  was given him while he was rolling  about on the ground in great agony,  and in a few minutet the dose was repeated. The good effect of the medicine was soon noticed and within an  hour the patient was taking his first  sound sleep for a fortnight. That one  little bottle worked a complete cure and  he cannot help but feel grateful. The  season for bowel disorders being at  hand suggests this item. For sale by  J. L. White, Greenwood, and A.

John Houston, president of the  Provincial Conservative Association, says in the Tribune: No  man in the province has anything  coming- to him from the Conservative party, "least of all Richard  McBride. Premier McBride and  his colleagues have the offices,  but in order to retain them they  must first prove that they are  worthy of the high positions they  have gained.  CORPORATION  PARTY  The question of the hour for  British Columbia Conservatives  is, "Will the Conservative party  control the corporations, or. will  the corporations control the Conservative party?���Rossland Miner.  As the policy of the Conservative  party has always been, and is  now, to build up corporations, the  corporations will certainly control  the Conservative party.  Important to Voters  It is stated that owing* to the registration of votes proceeding* so slowly in  many districts, the government has  decided to extend the powers of the  collectors of votes to enable them to  take applications to be placed on the  list from those entitled to franchise  rights in any part of the<province. Up  to the present time each collector has,  by his commission, only held, the  power to accept names and applications  of those resident and entitled to vote  in his own individual district. Under  the new order a collector may take applications from persons entitled to vote  in any electoral district in British Columbia, which he will duly mail to the  accredited Collector f��.r the said district  after having sworn the applicant.
