C-   Copper   Company   Entertains  Smeltermen Christmas Day.  ��� The British -Columbia Copper Co.  entertained its smelter employees to  dinner at the Windsor on Sunday.  The social affair was in the nature of a  "continuous performance," as'-the  members of both shifts arrives at different hours. The first guests sat  down at 3 p. m. and five hours elapsed  before the last smelterman had left the  table. The bill of fare was excellent,  reflecting great credit on H.irrv Coutes,  the manager of the dining room. J.E.  McAllister, ,(supt. of the smelter, and  over fifty employees participated .in  the good cheer: .' .;  The thoiiglitfu'lness and hospitality  of the company was dulv appreciated  by all the guests.  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  |;;;  ANB STOPE  ooooboooo^ooooooooooooooooo  ' Two furnaces at the Boundary Falls  smelter are treating 700 tons daily.  ' Le Roi No.' 2 last month shipped  3000 tons of ore to the Mother Lode  Smelter.  ' Although the figures are not complete shipments of high grade ore. from  this camp in 1904 will probably exceed  1800 tons, valued at over $225,000.  A The shareholders of the Royal Victoria, Gold Mining Co. will meet here  on Jan. 9th to authorize the- sale of  their property, thie Golden Eagle mine,  north fork of. Kettle river.  -A diamond drill hole rarely' goes  straight for the point aimed at; it will  invariably "drift" or deviate from the  line. In drilling a horizontal hole the  drill will almost invariably drift upwards.  ��� The. Montana output of copper for  i904, it is estimated, will aggregate  265,000,000 pounds, of which the Butte  district will be credited with 260,000,-  000 pounds, an increase in the production of the Butte mines of about 15,-  000,000 pounds over the preceding vear.  The production of the' various Amalgamated companies will amount to  195,000,000; the United Copper, 35,000.-  000; Clark,:24,000,000, "and miscellaneous producers, 6,000,000 pounds. The  increase is due to a greater amount of  ore mined than in 1903, 'the mines of  Amalgamated and United Copper companies having been in almost contitiu  ous operation throughout the year,  only slight interruptions having marked the business, whereas last year  there were several general and extensive .shut-downs. There has been no  change in the values of ores mined. It  is estimated that with the additions of  the Pittsburg & Montana company  and the Lexington group of mines, to  the list of producers next year, the  copper output of the Butte district will  be fully 350,000,000 pounds. The Amalgamated Copper company has done  very little development work in its  mines during the present year. The  shaft of the Anaconda mine has been  made 200 feet deeper and is now down  2400 feet.  ���m   B0UNDARV   VALLEY   LODGE  n^iiii^- No..3 8.1. 0. 6. R.

The provincial police are hunting  for an unknown man who committed a  murderous assault upon Wm. Gibson,  a railway employee, at Eholt last week.  Gibson received an ugly cut from a  knife across the cheek and his chest  and left hand were also badly slashed.  His condition was quite alarming until  his removal to {he hospital here. The  wounded man, -who is still weak from  the loss of blood, left the hospital on  Thursday of this week and announced  ffis"int^tion^f^-ope7adngr^vith~tHe  police in bringing his assailant to  justice. From all accounts there is a  woman in the case. - Gibson says he  had been wrongfully accused of having  insulted an Eholt landlady and that  interested parties hired a man to do  him up. ' He also claims he would be  able to identify his assailant. According to the story related here Gibson  hasn't any enemies. He was employed on the Grea1. Northern at Grand  Forks until a month ago when he went  to Eholt to hunt for work.  dence camp, Fred   Whittle.  Diamond, Camp McKinney, Sailor  Gold Mines Co.  Tip Top fraction, Greenwood, Jos.

Shortly after the discovery of gold in this district it was  visited by Mr�� Spurr. A little work  was then in progress on what is now  known as Columbia mountain, but up  to that time no good strikes had been  made. In January and February 1904,  however, rich finds were made in certain spots south of Columbia mountain. The district has now an approximate population of 6,000. The town  of Goldfields has sprung up, and  number- of smaller 'adjacent camps  have been established. Ic is estimated  that up to the present time about  $2,000,000 worth of ore has been  shipped from the district.

John Thomas Robinson is a  political fortune hunter, who attends to everybody's business but  his own. He is a friend of Dr.  frocter and also of F. J. Fulton.  John Fremont Smith is one of  those affable gentlemen who are  often used by schemers like Dr.  Procter and John T. Robinson.  Dr. Vereertbrugghen came to  Kamloops some months ago. He  had a very large and successful  practice in Europe but his health  failing him he travelled for some  time. He reached Kamloops and  decided to settle there because of  its splendid climate and its bright  future as the inland capital. He  went before the medical council  of the province and secured his  diploma. Of good family, well  educated, an attractive personality, and with a successful record  as a medical practitioner he soon  built np a large practice iu the  city of Kamloops.  The Medical Council of British  Columbia in past years was composed of mossbacks in the medical  profession. The mossbacks still  dominate the Medical Council.  Dr. Procter is a member of the  Medical Council, but it is not suggested that he is one of the mossbacks.  John T. Robinson has an office  in Kamloops, aud John F. Smith  sometimes visits John T. Robinson's office. Dr. Vereertbruggen  was invited there one day and he  entered. During'the conversation which ensued, Dr: Procter's"  name was mentioned. John T.  Robinson afterwards made an  affidavit in which he'declared  that Dr. Vereertb'rugghen made  certain , charges against Dr.  Procter, to wit, that previous to  ���'lliis examination he had intimated  T  I  j  I  i '  ..y^c-ioDr. Procter that he was some-  .-'$f$^!w��at rusty regarding text books  " .on the brain.    When he went up  /    for examination Dr. Procter was  the examiner on this particular  subject and three out of five of  the questions dealt with the subject, regarding which the doctor  confessed he was rusty and. that  it looked as if Dr. Procter desired  to pluck him. To give the  charges an air of realty and  respectability, Mr. Robinson succeeded in getting the board of  directors of the Inland Hospital  to take the matter up. Dr.  Procter is physician for the hospital and the hospital is run more  or less as a political institution.  The charges were referred to  the B. C. Medical Council and the  Council notified Dr. Vereertbrug-  ghen that unless he apologizes to  Dr. Procter before December 31st,  his diploma will be cancelled.  Dr. Vereertbrugghen does not  intend to apologize and has appealed to the Supreme Court.  Dr. Procter has discovered a  novel way of getting rid of his  opposition; the Medical council  has its uses; and men like John  T. Robinson have their uses.  British Columbia is a province  of wonderful possibilities.  Grip Quickly Knocked Out.  "Some weeks ago during the severe  winter weather both my wife and myself contracted severe colds which  speedily developed into the worst kind  of la grippe with ail its miserable  symptoms," says Mrs. J. S. Egieson of  Maple Landing, Iowa. "Knees and  joints aching, muscles sore, head  stopped up, eyes   and   nose running,  with alternate spells of chills and  fever. We began using Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy, aiding the same with  a dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and  Liver Tablets, and by its liberal use  soon completely knocked out the grip."  It is a good plan to take a dose^of the  Tablets when you have a cold. They  promote a healthy action of the bowels  liver and kidneys which is always  beneficial when the system is congested  by a cold or nn attack of the grip. Sold  by all druggists.  ACKNOWLEDGMENT.

The Independent Order of Oddfellows of Sydney, New South Wales,  issue a handbook annually (price three  pence) which gives a good deal of information tothe members. It appears  from an historical sketch published in  the foregoing that this order was instituted in Baltimore, State of Maryland,  North America, April 26th, 1819.  Lodges are said to have beeu in existence' as far back as 1802, but it was  not until the year 1819 that they took  definite shape. On January 15th, 1825,  the Grand Lodge of the United States  was organized. Until the year 1842  the Order in England and America  wan practically one and <-h���� same. It  was during this year the Grand Lodge  of the United States thought it advisable to sever its connection with the  Manchester Unity, and found the present body, "The Independent Order of  Oddfellows." From the year 1842 to  the present day the Order has experienced phenomenal progress. Its membership has increased from hundreds  into' thousands; today it exceeds a  million and a quarter, a number which  far .exceeds that of any fraternal order  in the world'.  The Order is universal, being spread  over the five continents of the world.  Grand Lodges are established throughout the United States of America, Canada,' Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and in the  following countries subordinate lodges:  France, Italy, Africa and Manila. The  system of clearances is so complete  that a member of the order may transfer  from one jurisdiction to another without the slightest difficulty. Travelling  or visiting cards are also issued to  brothers travelling to neighboring  States ,or countries beyond the seas,  which ensures brotherly recognition,  and, "if required, fraternal help - and  sympathy.' A (I.O.O.F.) tiavelling  card is a certain passport to friends,  and establishes friendships without  any other introduction.���From the Birmingham (Eng.) weekly Post  A Certain Cure for Croup  When a child shows symptoms of  croup*, there is no time to experiment  with , new. remedies, no' matter how  highly they may be recommended.  There is one preparation that, can. always be depended upon. It has been  in-use-.for many years and has never  known "to,.fail, viz:."'Chnm'Trlain's  'Cough Remedyt, 'Give it a'cu.in' e and  a quick cure is sure to follow. Mr, M.  F. Corapton of Market, Texas, says of  it. "I have used Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy in severe cases of croup with  my children, and can truthfully say, it  always gives prompt relief."
