[l s] President  G reenwood-Pboenl x Tramwav Co,, Ltd .  HERBERT' BUNTING,  [l sj Mayor.  Of the City of Greenwood  TAKE NOTICE that the above is a true copy  of the proposed By-Law upon which the vote of  the Municipality will be taken on   Wednesday,  the 7th day of April, VHyt,  from 9 o'clock  a.m.  , until 7 o'clock p.m. at the City Hall in   the Oitv I  : ef Greenwood. "  I  By order of the Council. G.B.TAYLOR,  City Clerk.  In the nitrate fields of Chili  there is enough of that commodity us'gti '��� supply the worldfor  100. years at the present rate of  consumption.  The Green-Meehan interests  has been absorbed by the Consoli  dated Cobalt Stiver Mines, Ltd.,  with a capital of $3,000,000.  It is announced that the lost  art ��f tempering- copper has been  discovered. Developments will  be closelv watched by those interested in the copper mining  dHstry.  in-  Butte is adding to the world's  supply at the rate of about 29,-  009,000 lbs, of copper a month.  The La Rose mine at Cobalt  employs 250 men.  Cobalt  on for  of  to  of  The Keakes vein in tbe  district has been drifted  130 feet disclosing 20 inches  10,000 oz. ore.  Tempering of Copper  A Halifax founder is said  bsve discovered the lost art  tempering copper, and is about  to promote a company to make  further experiments along this  line. For some years he has been  busily experimenting, and now  claims that he has the correct process. Some time ago he was at  New York, and had a talk with  the Guggenheim brothers. He  has hardened a piece of copper  and made a razor with an edge  keener than the best steel would  take. Blocks of copper have been  tempered that are harder to file  than iron. Not only has Mr.  Douglas, the inventor, been successful in tempering copper, but  he has also made a casting of copper and lead, that will stand inanv  times the pressure that the ordinary roller bearing casting will  stand.  . A large part of the Dominion  Copper company's famous Boundary properties are to be placed  upon the market and sold at an  early date under the mortgage  held by the National Trust company of Toronto, trustees for the  bondholder. .  It is practically certain that the  shareholders will buy in the properties in the plan for the reorganization of the company.  The sale will be under the authority of a judgement given by  Mr. Justice Clement for the foreclosure of the mortgage held on  behalf of the bondholders. But  while thev on out won one branch  of the case the court held that  that mortgage did not include  after acquired properties, those  obtained upon the credit or means  of the company other than were  acquired from the bond issue.  The National Trust company  contended that these, as well  as all other assets: of tha  company, were included in the  mortgage. But the court agreed  with the company, the liquidator  ���and theui��Mcure_rcre-Uor-&~ tfrat  the mortgage did not cover these  partcular properties.  This means that the unsecured  creditors will practically be paid  in full as well as all the others.  The bonds cover a million .butthe  propertiesareworthsevearl million  as they include the famous Brooklyn Stemwinder group of Phoenix  and the Sunset group of Dead-  wood camp, as well as ^several ot-  and the smel-  Falls.

These  claims, which are t-ituated on the  bunch grass slopes at an altitude  of about 800 fee.t. and distant  three-fonrths of a tniie from the  railway line, were located some  years ago by Wallace and Sy-  monds, two of the oldest old-  timers at the prospecting business  in the Boundary country.  The assessment duties were regl  ularly performed and ih i properties in due time crown-granted ;  when the original discoverers  disposed of iheir holdings to S.  Mi Johnsoo, C E ,ind J. C. Haas,  M.E , who last July bjnd;d the  claims to the Djaald C yr>er cjm-  pany, the services of Mr. Haas being retained to superintend the  work of disclosing the ore bjdies.  Two shifts under the direction  ot J. D. Graham have since that  time driven 380 feet of tunnel,  which, owing to evidence of a  movement iu thi f>rmatiji, has  been turned 60 degrees to the  south from a due westerly direction; and gives promise of cutting into the ore body in about  another 100 feet.  * A considerable amount of surface work has also been done to  the south of the tunnel and the  older workings, which gives  strong indications ol a large body  of copper-bearing ore with a N.E.  and S.W. trend.  Tka general-distribution of tha  ore as shown in the surface cuts  and trenching, covera many aires  in extent; and when tapped by the  tunnel at a depth of about 200 feet  should prove the Bruce to be a  bonanza property.  Assays of surface ores taken  during the present week show  values in copper, silver and gold;  a picked sample going as high as  25.5 per cent copper. The new  work has disclosed $10 ore and  has added greatly to the prospective value ot the property.  Altogether it may be said that  the surface indicatijns with the  ore found in the open cuts, and a  marked change in the present  face of the tunnel, are an ample  justification for the undertaking;  the work is in competent hands;  and the location being all that  could be desired for a mine and a  smelter site, we will expect to  post the Bruce among the proven  mines of the Boundary in the  course of a few week's time.  The initiatery degree will be put  on by the LO.O.F. on Tuesday  evening next.

MARCH 26, 1W  The far-reaching power of tlie  Mafia organiz itiin is sh iw.i by  the fact that the agent of a transportation company wbo had contracted to carry tbe body of Lieut.  Petrosino back to New York informed the American consul that  he was afvaid to do so on account  of warning he had received from  secret sources to have nothing to  do with the case.  THE JEWEL MILL  New Process Being Installed  There is now under erection  by the Jewel Syndicate at the  Jewel mine, neur Greenwood, a  new mill which is to test a slimes  treating process, which if it  proves successful will revolutionize the present method of separating the gold from tailing?.  The new process is the invention  of H. Nichols, manager of the  Ymir mine, and a company has  just beea formed to promote its  use in gold camps. The company  is entitled the Slimes Treating  Co., Limited.  The mill in course of erection at  the Jewel mine will be in operation in about two months, when  the commercial and practical  value of the inventionwi.il be  demonstrated. The inventor and  the other members of the company are confident that the tests  already made assure the success  of the process, but the new mill  will try it on a scale largeenough  for all practical purposes. On  the completion of a successful run  in the mill steps will be taken to  place the invention on the South  African market through Messrs,  Fraser and Williams of tbat coun-  try;  Immigration chaplains station-  edat landing   piers   at   Halifax  have resolved to petition the Canadian Moral aud Social league t<  ask   the   Dominion   governmer  for an  act   affording   immtrdiat-  protection to young women immi  grants landing  at any Canadiat  port.  KETTLE VALLEY FRUI'  LANDS  A deputation of tbe Canadiai  National association of Builders  waited on H ��n.

Three million letters and two  hundred thousand telegrams are  held for delivery in Paris owing  to the strike of the postmen and  telegraphers.  Sault Ste Marie is to have a  dry-dock that will cost half a million.  It is said that E. H. Harriman,  who is now 61 year's old, will retire from active railroading.  The U.S. Treasury has a deficit  of $130,000,000.  The fact that the construction  of the great Greenwood-Phoenix  tunrel will begin at an early date  is a m tt r of happy moment  to the citizens of Greenwood  and the people of the whole  Boundary country.  Scientific mining has wrought  great changes in the plans for  extracting the precious metals  from the bosom of Mother Earth,  and consolidations of capital  have made such big undertakings  the most feasible and profitable  method of procedure where the  topography of the ground to be  mined is favorable.  The success which has attended the completion of like < enterprises in a number of other localities is a fair criterion of what developments may be expected from  the Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel  ���which wili traverse a series of  known veins proved on the surface to carry high values in silver aud gold, and which will tap  the great Phoenix mines at] a  ����ptfa of 2000 feet when the end  of the contract is reached.

Following-we give the testimony of a  lady who if she had known of Zam-Buk  earlier would have been saved nine  weeks of agony':  Mrs. Frederick Bryant, of ��� 169, Rail  way Avenue, Statford Ont., says:��� "I  scalded my foot while prep��ringsupper.  Next day the skin came off and my foot  was in a'serious condition. I could not  wear my shoe and had to lay up for  nine weeks. During this time I used  dozens of salves but none done any  good, in fact the wound developed into  a running sore. I got no rest day or  night from the pain. At thi�� point a  supply of Zam-Buk was obtained and a  few application had immediate effect  In soothing: the pain and irritatirn. A  small supply proved aufficent to heal the  the scald, although I had spent dollars  in other remedies. New skin had now  formed nicely over the open sore.

The mixture opens the ologged pores of tbe  kidneys, thus aea_ti_g them in their  work of filtering all waste and poisonous matter from the blood, ana expels  these in the urine. To allow this'  poisonous matter to remain means  that it will settle ia the muscular '  tissues or joints, and cause the untold  misery known as rheumatism.  The mixture is composed of harmless vegetable ingredient which can  be purchased at any good drag store,  and mixed at home.  Anyone sufferia* frees any of these  afflictions will no ismmt ba pleased to  learn of so simple and highly recommended recaedy.  Everybody  Agrees  that COD   LIVER OIL and IRON   are  beyond question the greatest medi.  cines knnwn. Th��n why does not  everybody _ke Cod Live. Oil and  Iron? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is- scientifically combined with the Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable ;md the Iron digestible.  While  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and is  richer  in  oil than any other  emulsion, and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  and l'hosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thou-1  sand finds   -my trouble in  taking it,  ind infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover the well-established value of  the    Oil    and    Iron     is     immensely  enhanced by the  process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to b�� wondered at that  physicians    everywhere     have    fully  endorsed FERROL and used it largely  in their practice.    FERROL is invaluable for the treatment of any kind of  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  "You Know What  You Take"  BOVRIL  the kitchen  economist  1 fceiH!oo,Tcrente, Montreal, Wlanipti Vancouver1, St Jdbif, Hamilton, Cal<_ry  We will send you THE HOME JOURNAL  and the Boundary  Creek Times  for one  year*  Send us $2.25 and receive the Greatest Canadian Monthly  and The Times, with all the News of the Boundary lor  a whole year.
