PROSPECTS ON  WEST FORK  CIVIL SERVICE  With the prospect of railwaj  construction, from Midway west,  in the near future, an impetus  will be given to mining develop-  menton the Main and West Forks  of the Kettle River.  From Greenwood to the summit  of the divide between the Kettle  river valley and the Okanagan,  a distance of about eighty-five  miles, the country is more or less  mineralized, and the same cai be  said of the territory lying between  the West Fork and the Main Kettle.  There is a continuous mineral belt between the towns of  Greenwood and Rock Creek, a  distance of about twenty miics.  On Rock Creek and its tributaries  both lode and placer mining have  been carried on for years���the  latter for over forty years.  At Westbridge, some eight  miles above Rock Creek, the West  Fork joins the main river, and up  this fork of the stream the proposed railway will be built to  Pentiction. Along the whole  route of the line mineral locations have been made and development carried on for years, and  from some of the higher grade  mines shipments have netted the  owners a. considerable profit in  spite of the present difficulties of  transportation. The principal  veins disclosed carry values in  gold and stiver, while large bodies of copper-gold ore are awaiting the advent of the steam engine to increase the output of  this rich section.  There are many creeks which  pierce tbe mountain ranges drained by the Kettle" Kiver, and on j  these, creeks are mining camps established each with a score of  more or less developed locations  awaiting capital and means of  transportation to ensure a thriving community, Conkle Creek,  Boomerang Camp, Bull Creek,  Cranberry Creek, Wallace Mountain, China Creek, Arlington Camp  and Kallis Camp are a few of the  best known.  In the last issue of this paper  was published a list of the shipments from the Sally mine, on  Wallace mountain. Close by and  adjoining this mine are several  high grade properties which are  destined to ship in the near  future. On the Rambler, owned  by W. H. Rambo, J. W. Nelson  and F. J. Finucane over 500 feot  pf development work has been  done, and in surface indications  and ore characteristics it is a duplicate of the Sally. So far live  shipments have been made from  this property and the ore ran  from $74 to gl75 per ton.  The Duncan, owned by a local  company, the Wallace Mountain  Mining company, is the proud  possessor of the same ore bodies  as the Sally and the Rambler,  and lies between them. With  such companions as the Buster,  Washington and Idaho, Kokomo  and others, Wallace mountain  will hold its own with anv camp  in the district for high values in  gold and silver.  WILL VISIT THE COAST  The provincial government has  appointed I. A. Mara and W.  Sampson, of Victoria, aid Mi-ses  B. Cotsworth, a well known English actuary, as a c^nvv^ion to  investigate the conditio.s ui the  civil service throughout the province. The commissioners have  already done a co-i^'dr. .,blc  amount of their work at !; c >ast  and are at present making Nelson  their headquarters, and from that  center are visiting the offices in  the Kootenays. They will ncx1  proceed to the Boundary country.  The commission has no political significance, its main duties  being to 1��>j��� k into the conditions  under which each civil service  servant is working, and to grade  the civil service under the civil  service act parsed last session.  After completing this, a permanent commission will be arranged  for, which will have absolute control of the service.  Appointments will he made  by this commission from those  who pass the civil service examinations and promotion will be  by merit only. U ide'r this regime every civil servant will  have an equal chance of advancement whether he have political  influence or nob.    ,  Boys from lf>.jto 18 years of  age will be encouraged to enter  the service, and the salary will be  made attractive with regular increases guaranteed under the act  each year until the maximum  grade is reached, and with it the  maximum salary.  In putting such a system into  force the government was naturally bound to takg into consideration those already- in the service,  many of whom have already spent  the best vears of their lives as  government employees. In order  that no injustice might be done  anyone, the government appointed the present commission, which  is investigating separately the  case of each employee at every  place visited. Upon the report of  this commission will depend the  grade in which the present employees will be placed and also  the salary each will receive. The  new scale means an increase in  pay for a number of civil servants,  whose services, the commission  may consider, entitle them to better pay than they have been receiving. For this purpose the  government has provided a lump  sum of money this year, which  the commission wiil allot as it  sees fit.  PORTLAND CANAL  SILVER STRIKE  A remarkably rich strike of ore "  is the stereotyped beginning of a majority of mining stories, but if ever  the phrase was justified it is in connection with the latest news from the,  property of the Stewart Mining company, at the head of the Portland  canal. At the beginning of the season,  in addition to continuing work on its  main lead, the management decided  to develop a parallel vein. The second day's work on this vein exposed  a large shoot of high grade ore containing native silver, argentite and  horn silver. General assays of the  whole width of the ledge were taken  before th,e story of the discovery was  made public. The results showed  values going S24 in gold and $34.20  in silver���a total of $58.20 per ton.  The satisfactory nature of this  showing led to the development of  still a third vein paralleling the other  two, with results even more gratifying  to the management. On the livd of  June a body of ore was encountered  which, from samples just received at  the company's office in Victoria, far  exceeds in value the previous discovery. Mining men, on receipt of the  news, have come in- numbers to examine the ore, and are a unit in pro-  norJhcirflfft a find unique in the history of mining in British Columbia  The silver is contained in a formation  strongly resembling that which carries  the metal in the celebrated mines at  Cobalt, Ontario.    Sufficient  develop  ment work has already been   done taWe districts adjac&#to water powers  prove the vein no mere pocket, but  one of at least seven feet in width,  and of a length estimated at several  thousand feet.  Percy Godenrath, well known in  the Boundary, is at present in the  new silver camp, and an article from  his pen will shortly appear.  GENERAL NOTES  The damage caused by the Cobalt fire is estimated at nearly  three-quarters of a .million dollars.  A wireless telegraph station is  proposed for Warn's camp on the  Peel river, 2,000 miles north of  | Edmonton, to give direct communication between this point  aud the cities ou the coast, Seattle in particular.  SMELTING  The British ambassador in Sweden  has sent a letter to Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  Acting Minister of Mines, stating  that the commercial feasibility of electric smelling along the lines laid down  by Dr. Haanel, Director of Mines  for Canada, is now demonstrated by  the erection of another commercial  plant for electric smelting in Sweden.  The new plant is being established at  Trollhatten Falls and will consist of  three furnaces, each with a capacity  of 7,500 tons of pig iron per annum.  This makes two electric smelting  plants for Sweden, and one has recently been built in Norway.  The conditions of the iron and  steel industry in Norway and Sweden  with respect to electric smelting, says  Dr. Haanel, are practically the same  as in Ontario and Quebec, and he  sees no reason why electric smelting  plants should not prove equally profitable in this country. Ores treated  by the new process in Sweden contain from four-tenths to one and nine-  tenths per cent of phosphorous  The Mines Department is now  preparing exhaustive reports on the  iron ore deposits of Nova Scotia,  New Brunswick and of Gatineau ami  the Ottawa Yralley and Thunder Bay  districts of Onjyi^ujd Quebec It I  is expected that as the commercial  feasibility of the electric smeltinpAro-  cess has been thoroughly demonstrated, steps will be taken in Ontario and  Quebec to> e*pfejt*-some  of the rich  Dr. Haanel believes that, an immense  field for industrial development is  opened out in Canada by the success  of. the new plants in Norway and  Sweden.  WORTH WATCHING  TEN YEARS AGO  L  i  to  J. Pierpont Morgan, one of the  world's richest men, will visit Victoria  within the next couple of months.  The well known master of American  finance has arranged to make a trip  to different points along the coast,  and Victoria is understood to be included in his itinerary. Other places  that he will visit are San Francisco  and Seattle. From the latter point he  will take boat to Alaska to make a  personal investigation of his interests.  ��� Mr. Morgan is understood to be  contemplating investments in the  Queen Charlotte islands, and among  the capitalists who have visited there,  recently some are said to have been  investigating in his behalf. It is not  improbable that he. may make a personal visit to the Queen Charlottes  during his sojourn on the coast.  (Fvom lioniulary Cretli Timraof July s, is1)').)  E. G. Warren, of Rossland, was  in the city this week.  Father Pat will hold service in Barrett's hall on Sunday next.  The Bank of Montreal and the  Greenwood club are expected to move  into their new quarters in the Rendell  block this week.  Joe Snodgrass, driving the Penticton mail stage, was held up by armed  men on Tuesday, who secured the  registered mail sack.  Messrs A. VV. Strickland, Thos.  Roadley and Geo. A. Guess superintended the fireworks display, from  the top of Jubilee mountain at the  close of the celebrations.  The McKenzie Mann properties  are floated for $5,000,000 in the east.  The new company is called the Dominion Copper Mines Ltd. W. T.  Smith is in Toronto in this connection.  Since the disastrous fire at Cobalt occured in the Chinese quarter, and prievious fires in the  same town have had their origin  amongst the Chinese shacks, the  citizens of the silver city have  forbidden any more celestials  from coining to the place and will  effect a clearance of these already  settled there.  A cyclone occured at Gainsborough, Sask. last week, causing a  considerable loss of property, several families being rendered  homeless. Threning outfits were  twisted and carried half a mile,  while the buildings were scattered  over the prairie representing  kindlingwood. Hail tell the  size of hen eggs.  The financial state of Germany  is far from being such that she  can well afford to rush into war,  and she would certainly, if she  were seen to be rushing into war.  not find it easy to borrow. Commercially jealous of Great Britain, she mav be; but commercial  jealousy must have reached a  great pitch before it can prompt  to a most dangerous war. The  real point of danger seems rather  to be Japan, into whose arms Brit  ish diplomacy has thought it  politic to throw itself. There can  be little doubt ot the restless ambition working in that quarter, or  of the temptation held out to it  by the prospect of a lodgement  on the opposite side of the Pacific. India is another possible il  not probable source of trouble, if  Islam in Turkey should break  loose and the contagion should  reach Islam iu Hindoslan.  AMALGAMATION  IS RUMORED  A rumor to the effect tbat the  British Columbia Copper company  has made arrangements to treat  the ores of tlie New Dominion  Copper company at the Greenwood smelter is excellent good  flews, if true, and the publication  of this, by such a paper as the  Toronto Financial Post, would  indicate that there is some foundation for the supposition. Of  course, such a consumption would  mean great things for Greenwood  and the district, and it would ensure tbe active development of  several mines now idle. and. as  the 1*081 states, would enable tbe  l)cal copper companies to place  their copper product in New York  at less than the much quoted 10  cents a pound. That an amalgamation is in prospective it is  too early to state, but it does look  as if Greenwood would soon come  into her own again.  ��� ;r  C.

Courtesy  and capital should go hand in  hand, as no enterprise can be successful without that harmony  within itself, which we are told  is the mainspring of all civilized  endeavor, iu opposition to that  discord which spells discontent;  so too courtesy should be considered the foundation of all fater-  nal orders, whether Ibey be  formed tor the protection of labor  only or tbe general amelioration  of the conditions of life of their  member:-; and fur friendly relatione to obtain between a company  aud its't mploytes. courtesy must  be maintained ou both sides, or  the combined results of capital  and labor, which are, or should  be, the prosperitv of the community, are not to be found  In this district, dependent as  we are on the continued development of our mineral resources for  our existence, the sufferers by the  strained relations prevalent today  between capital and labor, are the  townspeople. It is to be regretted that the arbitrators, appointed to adjudge the differances as  they appear to exist between the  two parties, should have failed lo  agree, and that the district should  suffer as a result is pitiable.  The main points at issue at the  time of the silting of the board of  conciliation were the demands of  the local labor union for   recog-  employmeiifc of union men on  their merits without discrimination.  The wage question was not in  dispute at the time of the sitting  of the board, although it appears  on tbe declaration of the strike  called, an was not brought up as  a question for arbitration or referred to by either side. The  company were paying on the same  scale as the other mines and  smelters in the district at the  time of the shut down.  Non-recognition of the union  seems to be the real grievance  of the local officers, for discrimination against its members  would cease to be a question if  the company and the union were  able to meet on some neutral  ground, with courtesy as a recognized background.  The attempted coercion of nonunion by union men is not admirable or to be commended. On  the other hand, by seeking the  good will of its employees, union  or otherwise, the management  could obviate the antagonism  which is the basis of all the  trouble. To establish friendly  relations between the contending  parties a broader feeling on boih  sides is necessary, and the sympathy of the community will be extended to the side that shows that  feeling first and foremost in its  future dealings.  There seems no valid reason  why mutual recognition of the  rights of the other should not ob  tain if courtesy is used as a medium of exchange and fair play  exercised by both sides.  John Mulligan is doing assessment on the No. 18 group of  claims in Summit camp, near  Phoenix. A series of open cuts  bas shown up a fine ore body  The claims belong to F. M.

The  earth   and   tree   roots   were  then completely cleared away and  still the horses cou'd  not   pull it  owing   to   the   dead   weight   and  ground friction.

Our southern  neighbors never neglect to celebrate the anniversary ot their  national berth, aud rightly enjoy  themselves to the full each annual  celebration; but loss of life and  injuries of minor and vet hardly  less pitiable nature, so-common  to Fourth of July celebrations,  are not a feature of rejoicing even in countries less civilized yet more remote from what  is termed the home of civilization.  It is regretable that the greater  number of casualties on the 4th  are accidents to small children.  Putting aside the noise and racket of the day in the bigger centres, the spirit of national pride  which prevails is commendable,  and is superior to that want of  teeline that allows the anniversary of the initial appearance of  our great Dominion to pass without any notice.  S. S. Fowler, M. K., of Nelson,  has been appointed liquidator for  L. K. Armstrong, who has been  editor of the North West Mining  News, published in Spokane, for  many years, has decided to sever  his connection with that paper.  Mr. Armstrong has done so much  to promote the interests of mining  in British Columbia and the North  West that his work will be greatly  missed.  Spokane capitalists, headed by  James Breen, have bonded the  McKinley mine, in Franklin  camp, on the North Fork of Kettle river. The deal was engineered by Geo. A. McLeod, a  former resident of Grand Forks.  A number of Grand forks men  are interested in this property.  The amount of the purchase price  has not been made public.  Greenwood to Beaverdell is a  far cry, ki these -days while we  wait for the long promised railroad. He who sets forth from  Greenwood rises early, and under  the chareronage of "Mac" toils  over to Midway. Here be is trau-  ferred to the West Fork Stage  which promptly starts off on its  fifty mile drive. The first stop  is Riverside where, while the  horses are being changed, we take  a little refreshment, and then to  the cry of "all aboard," we pile  back into the stage.  The next part of the business  is more serious. The novelty is  passed and the appetizer we took  at Riverside is beginning to do  its work. Our next hope is West-  bridge. When we cross the Kettle river our spirits rise. At  Westbridge we look forward to  the important part of the day's  work, dinner, accompanied bv a  warm welcome. As we drive up  to the hotel our host greets us  and does his duty as host in no  half-hearted manner. This over,  we are handed over to our genial  hostess, who makes us feel thor-  oughty at home and, with the as-  NTAIHS   ~^ ^i_  'HO AWMAl Oil oa t Ar NT*  RANV MIRin'l. ,_/-  ���L>,.<<^^''"'^"'''-, i >/-^  rr^i ���     j ���) v   -- -.

The biggest engine ever built  is now on its way west from the  Montreal shops for use on the  mountain section of the C. P. R.  It is 70 feet from end to end and  with the tender weighs nearly  two hundred tons.  Earthquake shocks have again  visited Messina, Italy and buildings that were not completely  destroyed in the visitation ot last  December were shaken down.  The loss of life has not been as  great as in the former  upheaval.  KNIGHTS VISIT  SEATTLE EAIR  The business section of Cobalt,  Ont., was destroyed on July 2nd  as a result of a fire which started  in the Chinese quarter. One person was burned to death and three  thousand are homeless. Two  Chinamen are missing as also are  several children.  There were 112 women arrested  "vn London on the occasion of the  latest attempt of the suffragettes  to storm the House ot Commons.  Several windows were broken by  the infuriated would-be-voters  who were promptly l^ad away by  the'police to Scotland yard. A policeman's horse was stabbed with  a pocket knife and much face slapping of constables indulged in by  the female mob, whose rage was  increased by the disiplined good-  humor with which the blows  were received. The large crowd  of onlookers laughed at and jeered  at the women's antics, and cheered  -derisively as one after another  "was lead away to captivity.

R. and the  Provincial government combined,  for the capture of the robbers of  the C. P. R. train near Ducks  -$ recently, and the country scoured  by Provincial and Mounted police,  the round up of the six villians  should surely be effected in a short  time.  That the escape of  Bill  Miner  had anything materially to do  with this last train hold-up is  problematical; but it is fact that  while the severe punishment of  men of this stamp would make  those who contemplate like ventures somewhat timid of the consequences, tbe ease with which  Bill Miner escaped from durance  vile is a temptation fpr would-be  hold-up men to try their luck,  and, if caught, trust to the loose  methods of the Penitentiary to  make their escape.

When Earth's last ore is smelted, and  the Mines are all shut down,  When the last quotation of copper has  caused the la��t man to ftown,  We shall  fly, and  faith   we shall need  to, to Prospect a Planet or Two,  Till we find a New World undeveloped,  far off in the Infinite Blu i.  And those that are Good shall be Happy,  they Bhall get right in on Ground  Floor,  And the New World be filled with Honest Men then, whatever they were  before,  The Market will always be with them,  Rise when they want it to Rise,  And a broker's life be a happy one,  and 'Change be the Real Paradise.  A   myriad   Bright Souls  shall  praise  them, there'll be  no Sad   Souls to  blame.  For  no one shall lose any   Money   or  Home or Health or Good Name,  But   Each  for the Good  of Another,  and Each iu his  Separate  Sphere,  Shall deal in Real Good  for ever, and  Corners shall all disappear.  G  K.  OBITUARY  Yesterdav evening, Albert L.  White, the father of A. L.White  of this citv, was found unconscious in his cabin behind the  store. Medical aid was immediately called in, but the old gentleman never regained consciousness, and died shortly after.  The deceased was an old man,  but up to the time of his death  had been well and active, and the  sad end came most suddenly.  Another son has been telegraphed ror aud will be here for  the funeral, which will take place  at the Greenwood cemetery.  CARD OF THANKS  they are installing a large new  milling plant to handle tbe ore  of tbe mine. R. Roberts the  manager has returned to the  mine, after   a visit to  Rossland.  Dr. Will Spankie left for Calgary last Tuesday. The Times  wishes him every success.  J. M. Millar, formerly editor of  this paper, has commenced the  publication of the Granum Press  at Granum, Alberta. Mr. Millar  is to be congratulated on the appearance of his first issue, and  the Times wishes him every success.  The friends of Mr. and Mrs,  English, who resided so long in  Greenwood, will be grieved to  hear of the serious illness of Mr.  English at Cobalt. Mr. English  has been forced to resign his position as assistant superintendent  of the Crown Rose mine through  ill-health.  II. Pannel, of Midway, was in  town this week and states that  the insufficient supply of water  tor irrigation has injured the  vegetable crop in the lower valley.  The season bas been a particular-  lydry one at Midway, but it iscom-  fortiug to know tha6 last week's  rain wil1 have been welcome to  someone.  R. M. Floyd lost one of his  horses by a peculiar accident last  week, the horse stepping on a  dead pine limb which broke iu  two and the poin ed end ran into  the animal's interior. It was nec-  cessary to shoot the poor beast.  On the same dav Banbury tbe  Boundarv Falls milkman lost his  team, which had strayed away,  and Greenwood came as'near having a milk famine as we want to  see.  Those who have bad the misfortune to need a doctor during  tbe past few years have Ihe sympathy of all who are well and in  no need of their care, hut sick and  well alike regret the departure of  our local physicians for the more  thickly populated centren, Vancouver and Spokane, and all who  know Drs. Spankie, Oppenheimer and W. Spankie, socially and  professionally will be sorry to  hear of their leaving ihe Boundary.  The Greenwood Fire Department turned out lor a practice run  on Monday night and the boys  gave a fine exhibition of their  readiness to respond to an alarm,  tbe bell having hardily ceased to  ring before the team was going  full speed to the scene of the  imaginary fire. These calls are  good practice, and C. Summers,  the present chief, can be relied on  to have everything connected with  the fire department in Al shape in  tbe event of a fire in the city limits. The electric alarm itself is  apparently in good condition,  which we hope future calls will  demonstrate. The brigade intends to hold a series of practices  and if properly encouraged by the  city officials and citizens generally there is no doubt that the department will be quite capable  (from a volunteer stand point)  to give the city ample fire protection.  On Saturday last a prisoner  named Mike Basta made his escape from tbe county jail, where  he was serving a sentence for  theft, by hiding in a dark recess  at the entrance to the cell and  slipping out as the constable  brought his evening meal. What  would have been a serious mishap  was averted however by the agility of constable Karapata, who  immediately gave chase and engaged the flying prisoner in a  rough and tumble, in which the  latter lost a considerable portion  of his attire. After a short  scuffle tbe jail-breaker managed  to elude Mr. Constable and a hot  shase up tbe hill towards Phoe.-  uix took place, several others by  this time joining in the hue and  cry,   with   the happy result that  Chief Merrvtacw, of tbe city po- A SXAl��_For Sale< tbe lm  licee, fleeted a capture and the! ,)rove,���enis on a good Homestead.  man was once more placed behind 50 vert s in wheat, 30 acres sum-  the bars. nier fillow.
