The cnly Exclusive Dealer in Men'sWear in Greenwood  Perhaps there nUy be some,  cerlaioly nit more than a few, ol  those who are interested iu mining, who have not heard of the  Greenwood district. . Ftiore are  others who know our dktfrict  through itH mining only. If is  our purpose to review briefly, for  the benefit of the few who have  not heard of the Greenwood district, and for the further enligbt-  eimentof those who are acquainted with it through its wealth in  minerals alone, a few of the  most important resource*.  We of Canada are ever ready to  vaunt our position as the richest,  naturally, of .the colonies, We  of British Columbia are proud to  recognize our position as the  richest province of the richest colony. And we of the Greenwood  district are anxious to have the  world acknowledge our priority,  in wealth of resources, among the  districts of British Columbia.  However, we can imagine some  reader wondering if this is to be  a narration of tacts, or merely a  patriotic rhapsody, typical of  some parts of the west. We may  assure him that while it is not  our intention to weary him with  outbursts of rhetoric, it is never-  the less, difficult to write of the  wonders of our rightly named  "Boundless Boundary," of which  Greenwood is the centre, without  experiencing an impulse to grow  too enthusiastic.  Let us suppose ourselves about  to receive a stranger. Let us  meet him as he steps off the train,  and,before he has timeto take the  bus, let us give him a little visible-proof of the efficacy of the  mining methods applied in Greenwood. Looking north, we point  out to him two mines which he  has probably noticed as he passed  them on the train, the Gold Bug,  and across the valley, the Elkhorn. One quarter of a mile farther lies the Providence, and following the ridge of rugged rock,  we notice the Freemout, Strath-  more, and smaller mines. If we  go farther down the yalley, we  pass the Barbara and Helen,  while again looking across the  valley, we behold the huge smelting plant of the B.C. Copper Co.  A twenty minute brisk walk  would bring us within sight of a  second smelting plant. A dozen  mines and a three furnace' smelter and converter plant with a  capacity of 2,000 tons per day, all  within a stretch of three miles  and in plain sight; wh ile down  the valley, three miles farther, is  another three furnace smelter.  Mere telling of this might have  little effect, but what rational  man, after seeing in the space of  an hour, twelve different locations where Mother Earth's treasure vaults have been tapped, could  hesitate to agree that, iu mineral  wealth at least, our district is exceptionally favored. Let us visit  our friend after he has dined and  talk further with'him. Let us  bring his attention to the dozens  of mines immediately adjacent  and tributary to the Greenwood  district. The Mother Lode, Denoro, Emma, Jewel, Last Chance,  E.P.U., Crescent, Prince Henry,  and so on.until he becomes weary  ot the names. Let us then divert  from the mines and turn to the  streams. Here, too, we fiad the  metal which has helped to make  the Boundary district, Eminent  authorities agree that the streams  of the Greenwood district are  teeming with gold. Indeed, so  strong is   the   confidence   in the  Provincial Police  A Boundary Property that paid for itself Out of the ore shipped  I MINES AND MINING!  * ���  I,-'.-'; ������ '.".'*.���'. O  ��� ��  The Beatrice mine in the Lardo will  recommence operations shortly.  The U.S- Geological Survey is making extensive investigations of the  coal areas in Wyoming and Utah.  With an invested capital of ��250,-  000,000 in Mexican mining and metallurgical works, the annual production has a value of $160,000,000,  according to A. F. J. Bordeaux in  Transactions of the Amer. Inst, of  Mining Engineers, for September,  1908.. :  The mine has now, and has had right  along, a force of 25 men at work  daily. Ten cars of ore are now on  the dump and hauling has already  commenced, and they expect to ship  about a car daily in the near future.  The tunnel is 1,500 feet long. The  value of the ore is from $20 to #60  and there is approximately a million  dollars worth of ore in sight.  Chief Constable Bunbury returned  yesterday from Nelson whither he had  escorted Bill Newman, the third and  last of the trio accused of the Bridesville robbery-under-arms, and who  will appear for trial at the Court of  Assize and general gaol delivery which  opens at Greenwood on the 25ih of  May.  While at Nelson Capt. Bunbury  superintended the search for a man  who had disappeared and was found  near the outskirts of that city apparently having killed himself with a  shot-gunr  On his way back tfie  Chief   Constable was called in to act in the pros  edition of a man at Grand   Forks on  a charge of cattle killing, the case being sent up for trial.  Constables Savage, of Field, and  McDonald, of Grand Forks, have  changed places.  Board of Conciliation  The Australian gold production for  1908 was 3,536,548 fine ounces, a  decrease of 112..458 as compared with  1907.  The probability of the British Columbia Copper Co. using fuel in the  future from the Nicola and TPrihcetoh  districts has been considered. The  coal in these two sections does not  make as high a class of coke as that  of the Crows Nest Pass, but it will  coke well and would be good cheap  fuel, for Boundary smelters; a great  saving in freight being possible. Mining World.  Word comes from Montreal that  Mr. E. B. Greenshields, head of  Greenshields, Ltd., and a director of  the Grand Trunk Pacific, will be  head of the new $5;000,000 Pacific  Pass Coal Fields, Limited, a concern  that will develop an area in Alberta  said to contain 800,000,000 tons of  coal.  The mines at Rossland are at present employing 565 men and the payroll at present is approximately $58,-  000. It is anticipated that owing to  the amount of development work and  extensions of operations on the part  of various properties that the number  of men before long will reach a total  of 800.  Canadian   Mining   Institute���  Western Branch.  The Yankee Girl mine,near Ymir,  has been doing but little in the way of  shipments of late. This was on account of the road to and from the  mine being impassable and not on account of  any  inactivity   in   mining.  The Treadwell mine at Juneau,  Alaska, has begun work on a water  and electric plan, costing ��800,000.  The installation of this plant will permit the operation of the mine the  year round hereafter.  The fifth general meeting of members of the Western branch of the  Canadian Mining Institute will be  held at Coleman, Alberta, on Tuesday, May 25th, 1909.  All members of the institute in good  standing resident in the west are, by  virtue of such membership, also members of the Western branch.  Members are earnestly requested to  attend this meeting and are cordially  invited to contribute papers or notes  for reading and discussion at it ; also  to kindlv notify the secretary, E. Jacobs, that they will do so, if such be  their intention.  The sitting of the Board of Arbitration appointed under the provisions  of the Industrial Disputes' Act to enquire into th* matters in contention  between the B.C. Copper Co. and  the Greenwood Miners' Union began on Monday and terminated yesterday; Judge Wilson, of Cranbrook.  chairman, and Ed. Cr'onyn, of  Toronto.and John Mclnne>, M. L. A.,  of Phoenix, constituting the membership.  The company was represented by  E. G. Warren, while Secretary Geo.  Heatherton looked after the interests  of the Miners' Union.  The investigation included the taking of evidence in regard to resolutions  passed by the local Board of Trade,  and matters concerning alleged discriminations by the company against  members of the Western Federation  of Miners-  Quite a large number of witnesses  were heard, much of the evidence  appearing to be more or less irrele  vant, but altogether the proceedings  were orderly and interesting; and  everybody apparently pleased with his  part.  Geeenwood'Phoenix*  Tunnel  In London the directors of the Le  Roi mine at Rossland will raise $300,-  000 to further develop that mine. A  shaft will be sunk 2,650 feet.  8  (Continued on Page 2)  Gold has been found in the black  sand of Rose Spit, about twenty miles  from Massett on Queen Charlotte Islands, Steamers arriving in Victoria  bring news of the placer finds on the  northern islands. They state that a  number of men are at work on the  beach washing the black sand and  the miners are getting good returns  with free gold.  The work of opening the portal of  the Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway  Bore now shows forty-seven feet of  open-cut and a eight foot face in solid  rock.  The first set of timbers arc in place,  and a pipe-line for water for the compressor is being laid from the city  mains.  Timber Reserves in Crow's  Nest  The Dominion Government has  decided to reserve a belt of about 90,  000,000 acres of timber land running  south of the Crow's Nest line of the  Canadian Pacific Railway to the International Line and from 50 miles east  of the British Columbia boundary line  into Alberta. The Government will  control the cutting of lumber on this  land, which will amount to about 12,  000,000 feet per year, for the next  six vears.  Winnipeg Pushes World's Fair  Project  A special train with leading business  men of Winnipeg are touring western  Canada with the object of getting support of cities and towns for the world's  fair to be held here in 1912, and are  meeting with splendid success. They  have been well received at all points  visited so far, and no doubt the project  will be well supported by citizens of  every class throughout the west.  A delegation will visit Ottawa shortly to ask for a grant from the government.  METALS.  I). C Corbin, of Spokane, has  taken an option on the Wagner group  of claims on Hall Creek. The price  is stated to be $3,000,000. Among  the principal owners are C. P. Porter,  Attorney D. W. Henley and George  W. O'Ddl, all of Spokane. There  arc more than a dozen claims in this  property and are said to contain enormous ore bodies.  The mines at Middlesboro are  shipping more coal than ever at the  present time. April promises to be  the record month in the history of the  company's operation. From the first  to the sixth, inclusive, 103 cars were  pulled out of the colleries. At this  rate the total shipments tor April  would amount to approximately 16,000  tons. During February and March  something over 18,000 tons were hilled out of the local yards.

In the Crow's Nest valley in  Southern Alberta, ouly thirty-  three square miles of uuburnt forest are left out of a total of two  hundred and twelve square miles  of possible forest area. All this  area, according to the reports of  early explorers aud travellers,  was originally covered by a dense  forest.  Mr. H. R. MacMillan, asst. inspector of Dominion Forest Reserves, made a preliminary investigation of this district in the  autumn of 1��>0S, and has embodied the result of his investigations in an interesting report. In  the following schedule he summarizes the condition of the  tract:���  Sq. miles  Sod-covered, denuded area 85  Dead  standing timber  34  Area covered with young  growth    60  Unburned forest 33  Total   212  T-hus no less than 17'J square miles out of the 212 (over 84 percent  of the area) has been cleared by  lire at one time or another.  Eighteen square miles ot the  area is above limber line.  The area first mentioned, viz.,  the "sod-covered, denuded area,"  presents one of the most difficult  propositions. Before railway construction started, this area was  covered   by   a   heavy   fir forest.  kill all the forest reproduction"  (i.e., the joung trees) "to destroy  the remaining seed trees, to burn  off the upper layer of soil and  leave a desolate waste".  Of unburnt forest only thirty-  three square miles (about sixteen  per cent of the area) remain, and  these are situated in the places  that are least easy to get at,  namely, at high levels and at the  heads of valleys and in draws; ar d  this forest is consequently least  valuable. It is the timber that is  easy to get and that the fire here,  as everywhere else, has consumed  or damaged.  The most hopeful aspect of the  whole case is presented by the  sixty square miles of country covered with young growth. The  land on which this young growth  is found is 'Hoo high on the hillsides and is too rough, stony and  gravelly to be fit for agriculture or  valuable for grazing". This young  stand of timber consists largely  of Lodgepole Pine, with a small  proportion of spruce and Douglas  tfr. Properly protected, it will  in time come to be of immense  value.  The first step in forestry, here  and everywhere else, is to preserve  the forests that now exist, and so  the first thing necessary in this  region is to protect the green timber and the young growth from  the fires that have been so disastrous in the past. This is the  first problem that is engaging  attention of the Dominion Forestry Service.  Up to the present fire protection in Canadian forests has been  effected entirely by patrol of the  area to be protected by rangers  whose duty is to watch for fires  and put them out (and much of  the value of such a services lies in  the fact that the ranger can discover and extinguish in its first  stages a fire that, left unchecked,  might destroy manv thousand  dollars' worth of timber) and  warn travellers and campers of  the danger of carelessness in the  use of fire. This patrol will no  doubt be the basis of the system  finally adopted for this region,  supplemented probably by the  use of "look-outs" and telephones  monstrated when that greatest  of Boundary explc it=, and, perhaps we may say without fear ot  contradiction, thdgreatest of me'-  al mining projects in B.C., namely the Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway Tunnel, pierces the hill to cut  at least a dozen known veins of  tbe richest ore, and who can foretell how many others ?  Perhaps too much attention has  been paid to the mining interests  of the district, and some may feel  that other resources of nearly as  great importance  should share a  part of the glory of the   district.  Let us. then,   talk   of   resources  which,   though   not so generally  known as the raining,   are nevertheless bound to be placed among  our assets.    A conservative   estimate places the available timber  in the Greenwood district at  the  enormous figure   1,000,000,000 ft.  We have all taken as a matter of  course the. fact that our hills are  covered,but it is easy to minimise,  in the light of the  importance of  the mining   and   smelting,   this  part of our   hoard of   treasures.  To one who is interested, however, a billion feet of   pine, tamarack and cedar, and   the  ever increasing gain of the demand over  the supply,   can^meaa   but  one  thing���that the Greenwood   district will be called upon to furnish  a share of   the   world's   lumber.  Another   fast   growing   use   of  wood is for pulp;: and of material  for pulp, our districts oan furnish  as   much   if   npt more, than the  gigantic  amount   of her timber.  vast tracts of spruce and   eotton-  wood are easily available in the  city's immediate vicinity.  So much, then, for the mineral and timber resources. Now  let us leave these two, perhaps  the most important, and investigate for a moment another field  for investment which, is rapidly  widening, although it is still  comparatively unexploited in the  Greenwood district. Suppose we  walk up the banks of our little  river, Boundary Creek. The eyes  of the connoiseur will at once detect, the long lines of benches,  the natural facilities for irrigation, the many tributary brooks,  and here and there where it has  been upturned, the rich appearance of the soil���in short, all the  requisites of an ideal fruit growing locality, If we turn, going  farther south, we find that enterprise has succeedad   in   proving  the qualities of the soil, and we  can see beautiful stretches of cultivated fruit lands, at Midway.  We will not venture a prediction  of rap;d growth of this industry  in the immediate future, but we  will hazard the opinion that,when  the opportunities along this line  become known, fruit growing j  will be reckoned as one of the industries, instead of being held,  as it now is, to be a non-entity.  Today, however, we can reckon  it only as one of the undeveloped  resources. So far we have attempted to confine ourselves to a  concise estimate of our money-  making resources,miniiig, timber,  and agriculture. Now we ask,  where can there be found in our  country, a district capable of development along more lines than  our own ?  For a little variation, let us examine the op;x rtunili^s for relaxation and recreation. The Greenwood district is, if we may use  the expression, the sportsman's  ''Happy Hunting Ground." Game  of every variety abound in the  hills and valleys, and opportunities are rife for the novice or the  experienced hunter. Those pleasure bent can find bear, deer, cougars, and other denizens of the  woods; or, if they want a bird for  dinner, half a day's tramp will  see them home with plenty. The  fisherman can whip hundreds of  streams and cau capture many  varieties of the hardy mountain  trout. Every season Greenwocd's  citizens take advantage of their  opportunities for coming heart to  heart with nature, and partaking  of the Ireedom of the woods and  streams. Someone suggests that  these are questionable resources.  We will but refer him to the  Gre��nwood sportsmen, who will,  I am sure, soon convince him that  the' holiday possibilities of our  district should not be omitted in  the survey.  And shall we not include iu the  list of Greenwood's resources,  that indomitable spirit which  prompts the citizens to endorse a  project like the Phoenix-Greenwood tramway tunnel, an undertaking which involves considerable risk and expenditure, but  which gives promise of stupendous results ?  Thus far, we think the reader  will agree that we have stayed  close to the   facts   in   reviewing  (Concluded on Page 3)  DANGERS OF NEGLECTING  A  SORE.  NEVl'U* neglect a cut  or sore,  however trivial il may appear.  Mrs. B. K. Hedwell, of .1.17, Proven.  cher Avenue, St. Honiface, Winnipi-g,  had a small sore on ihe second linger  of her left hand.     She tlionejit il  would get right unaided, hut il didn't.  Instead, blood-poisoning set iu.  She  says :���" I then tried poultices and  an ordinary salve.   These, however,  did not have the desired effect, and,  as the finger began to fester, I had to  call   in'a'doctor,  who  lanced   il.  Despite his care, however, it again festered, and  the ointments, liniments, and other prep.ii Htioii  which'the doctor gave me seemed absolutely unable  to bring about any relief.    We were told of a cast:  similar to my own in which Zam-Huk had eflected  a cure when everything else had failed, ami we,  therefore, decided to give Zain-Uuk a trial.   Ii only  needed  a few days to show  the wisdom nf iliii  step.   The blood-poisoning and inflammation were  reduced, and  the  pain   became  less  acute.

Greenwood has big Smelters and proven mines, and a mineralized area of boundless  possibilities.  There is now a revival of mining in the Boundary Country, of which Greenwoood is the  Centre.  The day is near when as many thousands of men will be employed in the Boundary mines  as there are hundreds now,  All that is required is more capital to work the wonderful deposits of mineral in the richly  favored Boundary.
