Without g-cing- into too tedious de-  tuil we may give some facts regarding  the metal production of Canada that  will be gratifying to residents of the  Boundary.  In the year 1903 the Dominion yield  in gold, silver, copper, and lead was  about $28,000,000, of which 50 per cent  came from the Yukon in gold alone,  and 47 per cent of the united value  from British Columbia.  Bnt it is when we turn to comparison of different sections of British,  Columbia that the position pf the  county of Yale becomes apparent.  Last year Yale produced one-sevtfhtli  of the entire Canadian yield of these  metals, and 44 per cent of the entire  yield in copper.' Of the British .Columbia yield of of all these metals,  Yale produced 30 per cent.  But a very small part of Yale county  is embraced in the Greenwood and  Grand Forks mining divisions. This  little neck of the woods last year  yielded nearly S2,500,000 value iu copper alone or 44 per cent of the entire  Canadian output.  A brief  suniininary showing the important place held by the Boundary in  the metal production  referred  to herewith follows:  Canadian yieki of Copper iii~i9i)3T.~7. ~S?.72S,201  British,Columbia " "    ��� "        4,547,535  County Yale " "       "        3,(64,234  Boundary "        " .    "       2.446,561  But the copper industry ofthe Bound  ary is as yet in its infancy. It is fast  expanding. Yearly, the comparisons  will crow more favorable. Mines are  multiplying, quarries are opening,  smelters are adding to their furnaces,  and the Boundary will year by year  more clearly define its position as the  premier mining and smelting centre of  Canada.  THE BLUE JACKET  Messrs. H. H. Huff and Murdoch McLeod. owners of the Blue Jacket and  Horseshoe claims in Central camp,  have taken Peter Swanson and George  Crowse into partnership with them,  agreeing to give them a certain undivided interest for a specified amount,  of development work,  GRAND FORKS CARNIVAL  Grand Forks is nothing if n->t alert  for something new. It has become the  fashion wilh Grand Forks to cater to  the amusement seeking people ofthe  district. Her citizens are always  ready lo subscribe to anything that  may tend lo advertise the town and  contribute to the pleasure of the public  and ihe profit of her citizens. "The  Gateway City" has undertaken what  would seem a larg-e task for -so small a  town, ir providing a street carnival  this year, but we doubt not the energy  of the committee in charge will make  it a success. Mr. P. H. Donaldson,  Carnival Secretary is visiting the  sister towns of the district stirring up  interest in the event. lie recently  visited Greenwood and appears very  enthusiastic over the prosprcis of this  holiday  affair.      He assures   us liial a  large list of attractions will be presented, that liberal railway rates and accommodating trains have been promised and tliat large crowds are m  sight for the occasion. While here he  secured the promise of tlie Foulds brothers to appear in the rock drilling  contest.  Now that the carnival is au assured  fact it is up to ihe citizens of that town  to see that those who go may speak  well of the affair when they return  home, and that the greed of neither  hotel keeper nor hack drivers affords  visitors cause to repent their patronage.  BUILDING HOMES  It will soon be necessary for some  one to erect more dwelling houses  in Greenwood. Desirable houses are  very difficult to obtain, and vacant  houses at all comfortable are very few.  Quite a number of people who live in  rented houses ought to be home owners.  For some time . several loan companies assisted in building homes in  the city aud Anaconda, but for the last  few years building and loan societies  have declined to make advances  here.  One society has recently notified its  Greenwood agent that owing to the  satisfactory condition of its loans here,  he may make further loans to desirable  applicants on desirable properties.  This speaks well for Greenwood for  the company referred to is conservative and cautious along these lines.  KOOTENAY OIL  A number of Greenwood citizens are  congratulating themselves on Liaving  secured their licenses to prospect for  oil in the celebrated : East Kootenay  fields.      ' ���  '.  The local holders of licenses are Dr.  J. Spankie, H. McCutcheon, 3. R.'  Redpath and Barry Yuill. With these  gentlemen are associated J. -\V; Pratt.  Ahg-us Cameron, James Cameron and  Wm. Forrest. Their united interests  cover 9 claims, eight of which are in  one unbroken body. These lands were  located by Wm. Forrest and James  Cameron. The holders of these licenses  have been very careful to comply with  all the regulations of th,e department  and they entertain no doubt whalever  of the validity of their claims.  The fact that the government has  not given any measure of guarantee of  title with the licenses does not make  the licensees a bit uneasy, their claims  being all prior ones and all legal  technicalities and departmental rulings  having- been"care f til 1 y bbseirved7"���"'""'"'"'  NEW STRIKE  Louis Bosshart is showing some very  fine gold bearing rock taken from Us  new find up West Fork. The new  camp is about midway between the  main Kettle river and the West Fork  between Beaver and Cedar Creeks, and  about equally distant from Beaverdell  and Canyon City. The rock being-  exhibited in Greenwood is literally  sprinkled and blotched with gold and  if any considerable part af the six foot  lead runs according to sample the find  is an importaut one.  CHICAGO COLONY  The Chicago colony in town was  augmented this week by the arrival of  Messrs. H. If. Bishop, Jno. Clancy, C.  L. Magee, Win. M. Thornton, and M.  S. Massler. They were accompanied  by J. H. Kae of <the Hesperus mine on  Fourth of July Creek.  A DREAM  Yesterday the wiiter was talking  with a man whose wife has been a long  time ill, aud who, because her husband  is a working man, spends many days  alone unable at times to even wait upon herself. The husband was complaining that ladies did not appear so  thoughtful of their own sex as gentlemen, referring doubtless to the ministry of fraternal orders. Last night  the writer had a dream, he thought he  had been transformed into a lady and  had died. Upon attempt to enter Paradise he was met by a kindly one who  inquired as to his visitations of mercy  and ministrations of love. Hanging  his head he plead excuse for uegUot.  when ilie face so full of light bill  pained, closing the portals said "'next  duo:  t-j liie left."  A Veteran Team at Work  on Property  18  Local Peoci: in Control���Assays $80  And Upward.  A quartette of veterans are working  on the Silver King. They are Joe  Trainor, Miue Kane, Bill Hannah and  Tom Pickard, The team is well  matched, every man having 'specialty'  and every man being a worker.  After having stripped the lead for  some distance the management decided to sink a shaft and ptoceed with  development in proper fashion. At a  suitable location on the vein the  ground was broken and work of sinking begun. The shaft will be a double  one, each compartment being 4 by 4)4  feet in the clear. The vein shows up  good and strong and yields values of  $80 and upward. The boys are assured that they haqe an excellent property and instead of gophering around  for quick shipments have decided on a  policy of thorough development.  This property like many of the other  high grade properties of the camp has  lain undeveloped long. Owned chiefly  by non-residents no work has recently  been done thereon. Now that local men  are in the saddle we shall expect.tosee  the claim developed along business  lines. Gradually the, high grade  claims of the district are falling under  local control, one of the happiest  circumstances that could befall both  them and Greenwood.  FOREST FIRES  Forest fires have s'.arted at different  places m the adjacent hills recently,  but all have been extinguished by  prompt action. One that threatened  to become serious raged for a time on  Monday, in the gulch just west of  town. ^-Severn l_hn ild in g.s^a nd r ail way  trestles on the Mother Lode branch  were threatened but the prompt arrival of men from .he Mother Lode  mine suppressed the danger.  The weather has been very drv for  the last two weeks and unless rain  should soon come more seriou:: tires  may be expected.

Doubtless the righteousness of  his cause accounts much for the  beroism of the Japanese soldier.  He must win now or the future  looks dark for his country.  Each man is an intelligent  unit of an intelligent whole, aud  one hardly knows which to admire most, the quick work of the  early days of tlie struggle or the  dogged pluck of the latter days.  The Japanese generals undisturbed by the early boasts of the  Russiau have met the latter on  his own ground on the north and  appear to be getting away with  him. It looks now as if history  would be made very fast in the  next few days. The struggle is  certainly on to the death and  though the end is problematical  the advantage appears with the  Jap.  A    UNIQUE   COMBINATION  The Japs keep hammering  away at Port Arthur on the South  and at Kuropatkin's army ou the  North. At Port Arthur they  realize the enormity of their task,  bur undaunted at what the world1  regards an almost impossible  thing, keeps doggedly at work.  Their men are falling fast victims  to disease, to deadly artillery and  to the merciless fury of the big  guns of the fleet. But as fast as  the Japs ranks are thinned by  the above, other Japs are read}'  to take their places.  The Jap is a patriot. He  thinks it honor to fight his  country's foes and glory to die  for his country's needs. The  end would seem to be inevitable.  Port Arthur will duly be reduced.  The reports of the distress of the  Russian garrison, of the commanding generals depression and  death may or may not be true,  but little doubt exists that Jap  prowess will in the end prevail.  Farther north the Jap is doing'  equally good work. The Japanese generals appear to be hemming the Russian in. Some  fierce fighting has ensued. Deadly  results of both Russian and Japanese valor have been manifested. But the Japanese appear,  from rather meagre and even  rather doubtful reports, to be  having by far the best of the  struggle. The vain-glorious  Kuropatkin has met his match in  strategy, the fierce Cossack his  superior in valor. Patient under  difficulties, determined in a struggle, seeking victory or death on  the battle field.the Jap is a model  soldier  and  the  older  armies of  Martin Burrill, the Conservative candidate has returned from  a political pilgrimage through  Cariboo and Lillooet. Mr. Burrill had the misfortune to fall into bad company while in the  north country. Premier McBride  and attorney- general Wilson were  taking a political jaunt through  Cariboo about the same time and  chaperaned the Conservative candidate through to Barkerville.  Now Mr. Burrill is one of the  few great men in this country  who can see no virtue in the  Grand Trunk Pacific. He believes that the government should  build and then turn it over to  the Canadian Pacific Railway  company and that the government should also build connecting lines running north and  south and turn them over to the  powerful ally cf the conservative  party. ��� While he could find no  voters in Cariboo who endorsed  this unique railway policy of his,  he was grateful to find that the  two worthy provincial statesmen  gave it their hearty endorsement.  One good turn deserves another; so Mr. Burrill had the  temerity to justify McBride's Assessment Act. He was unique  in this respect also because no  other man could be fovnd to say  arkihd word for "thiswonderful  bit of legislation.  The trip was not without its  compensations. From a vote getting point of view it was a failure but an unqualified success as  a beautiful exhibitjof Tory statesmen loyally standing by each  other in all matters that are opposed to the best interests of the  people.  To "the man on the street" it  looks as if Mr. Bui rill would have  fared better had he not so completely put himself under the  blighting influence of the McBride adminsiration but it is not  for the Times to suggest to him  how he should conduct his campaign. So long as he confines  himself to a justification of the  McBride Assessment Act and an  execration of the Grand Trunk  Pacilic, the Liberal cause is not  likely to be jeopardized in Cariboo or any other portion of Yale-  Cariboo.  has power to compell a railway  to build a branch line to any industry within six miles of a railway on the application of. the  owner or owners. The consent  of municipalities must first be  obtained before a railway can  cross a street'or run along a highway. Railways are made responsible for . the expense of  carrying any necessary drainage  work across a railwa)-. The  commission has authority to  order a company to construct  necessary farm crossings, and to  construct sufficient fences, gates  and cattle guards. All bridges  and like structures of a certain  length must be approved of by  the board before construction.  The commission also has authority to order the railway to provide proper faculties at its stations, and to say what these facilities shall be. It also has power  as to the accommodation, running  and operation of trains. The  railway is made responsible for  all fires caused by sparks f rem its  engines and railway companies  are compelled to file its tariff  sheets which may be amended by  the commission.  The advantages to be derived  from the new railway act are  briefty summarized as follows:  1. Publicity of railway  rates.  2. Lessening of open rate  wars.  3. The equalization of rates  for long and short hauls.  4. The removal of substantial  and vexing grievances of the  farming community.  5. The beneficial exercise of  controlling powers and thorough  supervision of railway construction and operation.  6. Better education of the  public in railway and transportation matters.  7. Small shippers will be  benefitted.  8. More uniformit}r in rate  making.  6. General use on railways of  efficient breaks, automatic couplers and other safety appliances.  10. Uniformity in the construct  ion of rolling stock and in the  rules for operating trains.  12. A decrease in the number  of serious accidents.  The passage of this act is one  of the many instances which go  to prove that the government is  a business one and alive to the  best interests of the people. With  a strong commission such as has  been appointed there is no doubt  but many of the crying evils in  connection with the question of  transportation will be remedied.  mmmmfflmmmt^mm^MMB  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  Cr*  Cr*  CF*  CF*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  CF*  <Ct  CF*  CF*  Cr*  CF*  Cr*  CF*  CF*  09.  ;ank of Montreal.

Mined in Province  The Victoria Colonist has published  the statistics of the approximate mineral production' of British Columbia  for the first six months of the present  year, compiled by the minister of  mines. The fignrcs given show a  most encouraging increase over the  production of the previous year, especially in the case of silver lead ores.  Moreover, the production of the last  six months of this year will be considerably in excess of the first six  months. The amalgamation of large  concerns in the Boundary district, and  the installation of several concentrating plants in Rossland, insure an important increase in the production of  low grade ore values. The total production is as follows:  From January 1 to June 30, 190-,:  Gold, 123,339 ounces, silver, 2,037,061  ounces; copper, 17,513,886 pounds; lead  16,500,000 pounds.  The total production during the  whole year of 1903 was: Gold, 232,831  ounces; silver, 2,969,201 ounces; copper  34,359,921 pounds; lead, 18,089,282  pounds.  SPOKANE FAIR  W. A. Cople'n who has charge of the  mineral display at the Spokane Fair  in October is intersing himself in  securing exhibits for the cause. He  plans to visit Greenwood in the near  future to supplement the fine display  of ore sent to the Fair last year by the  Greenwood Board of Trade.  1     Tl-e  Star Bakery   is   now giving 23  loaves of home made bread  for SI.00.

CHEAPEST I  THE WORLD  What a  Visitor  to Camp  Says About  Careful   Study Made  by a  Mininir  Man.  We regret that want of space prevents publication in its, entirety of an  article from the pen of R. C. Campbell  Johnston which recently appeared in  the Mining Journal of London Eng-  and. The following extracts however  will be of interest to mining men.  "Doubtless,if metallurgists and mining engineers had from thefirst known  the characteristics of the cupper deposits of British Columbia as shown  when more through development has  exposed the structure and gangues,  these men would have hesitated in  many cases to have advised their  clients to have inves'.ed. Capital,  however, started to operate, and later  proved the deposits so extensive, carrying less than 2 per cent of copper per  ton, with values of gold and silver in  the Boundary district, they were tempted to go through to a successful issue.  With high priced labor, dear supplies  and costly transportation, the task  was hard, and required capital to equip  the mines and smelters with every  necessary labor saving device. Now  the difficulties have been overcome,  and steady profits are accruing. Further capital interested in copper as a  commodity is coming in, and benefiting from the pioneer's experience is  saving large sums in the initial stages,  recognizing that British Columbia is a  coming factor, in the copper production  and one to take the place of the world's  large old mines dying a natural death  from depletion. Tabulated from the  "Copper Handbook, 1904," from the  provincial minster of mines' report for  1903, and with private professional  advices, it is established unquestionably that the cheapest smelting  practise extant is in British Columbia.  This is not said in a boastful spirit,  nor is this fact going to prevent bur  metallurgists from pressing forward,  and accomplishing costs of less than  85 cents a ton smelted in future,  though many will accuse us of summer madness.-'  *   *   ���*  "If those interested in copper as a  metal and in making a profit on legiti-  T mate mining for itssakervviiritivestlii  British Columbia copper mines judiciously with the requisite capital to  carry matters to gain all profits,   then  I have for sale some of the finest Ranches and Fruit Lands in the District.

The clusters are so thick that many  will not believe that tliry actually  grow on the trees until the secretary  lifts the branch up and shows them  that such is the case."  British Columbia is showing up well  in the matter of fruit display at the  Dominion exhibition at .Winnipeg.  This is a new departure for the province. Hitherto British Columbia has  been too reticent, as to her resources.  In a general way it has been known  t,hat her mountains were filled with  minerals, he.r rivers teemed with fish  and her forests produced the finest  kind of timber, but the magnificent  product of her orchards has scarcely  received notice. The valleys of British  Columbia are fertile beyond belief.and  when to the fertility of soil is added  the beneficence of climate there is  little wonder that fruit grows well.  But of the display at Winnipeg the  Free Press has this to say:  "The corner of the British Columbia  building given up to the fruit exhibit  fiom that province looks simply charming. The fruit that has been bottled  is in tall, slender jars, quite ornamental in themselves, and they are arranged on shelves wreathed with hol'y. ivy  and sprays of cedar and fir and spruce  from the same province. Below the  bottled fruits are the boxes of magnificent red and black cherries, immense  gooseberries as large as plums, raspberries and'tomatoes, the Matter quite  the finest that have been exhibited in  Winnipeg this year.
