The farmers of Rock Creek,  Rock Creek plateau, Bridesville,  Myncaster, and Rock Mountain,  have formed a co-operative company to purchase a threshing  machine to handle the increasing  crop acreage of that progressive  farming district.  At a meeting held in Riverside"  Hall on May 28ih, J. G. McMynn,  H. A, Pearson and J. Lindsay,  were elected Directors of . the  Rock Creek Threshing Co. for the  ensuing year, with S. T. Larsen,  Secretary-Treasurer; and a complete threshing outfit, separator  and engine, was ordered from  the J. I. Case Threshing Machine  Co. The capital stock of the  company is $1,800, divided into  36 shares of $50 each, which  amount will be easily taken up  among the farmers interested.  In the past it has been necessary to obtain permission from  the Dominion Government to take  a machine in from the U.S. side  of the Boundary line to accomodate the needs of this growing  community, which has now reached the position of being able to  furnish their own utilities.

The only Exclusive Dealer in MenWear in Greenwood  U. ���  A meeting on this subject was  held in the Presbyterian church,  last Wednesday night when Dr.  Spencer, superintendent for B.C..  gave an address on the subject.  He said everv province in Canada  had a Local Option law except  B.C. To get this .law was the  reason of tne present campaign.  Fourteen hundred municipalities  were under local option in Canada, east of the Rockies, and the  tidal wave was making itself felt  iu B.C. In the United States  370,000,000 were living under  local option, eleven whole states  and parts of sixteen others had  gone "dry." It is uot a religious,  question but a business or economic one. The business men  were alive to the interests of  trade affected by the liquor and  were closing saloons at the rate  ��f thirty a day. B.C. has no  local option law. Liquor men  are donating many thousands to  block this effort. They do not  trust the people on this question  and yet the people keep on making the liquor men rich and themselves poor and in the train of  liquordom follows other evils,  while men of low morals in councils pretend they   are  necessary.  The speaker said when the men  of business and the workmen  generally make up their minds  tbis waste should cease it would  soon go, The Local Option League exists (1) to obtain a law (2)  to put it into operation (3) to  nominate clean men for the legislature and close the 700 bars of  the province. Thousands of hotels do run and can run without  bars and if the money worse than  thrown over the bars of B.C.were  turned into other and better channels of trade the people would be  well off.  Dr. Spencer 18 making a tour of  the province backed by 35,000 signatures to the recent petitions  and by fifty local leagues. A  plebiscite will soon be taken; the  vote of the province will be in favor of the people having the right  to say whether the liquor traffic  shall remain or not.  Dr. Spencer spoke Wednesday  evening to an attentive audience  on the subject of local option.  The Dr. speaks in Phoenix  ou Thursday evening and in Midway on Friday evening,  The Annual Summary Report  of the Ge logical Survey of rCan-  ada for 190S which is now i? the  process of distribution, amongst  a great amount of useful information has the following items  of local interest. '  Phoenix and Slocan  Mr. O. E LeRoy reports j (pp.  65 68) on the examinatiivn if  Phoenix Cam (j, British Columbia,  of which it is proposed to .publish a map on a scale ot 400, feet  to 1 inch, prepared' under the direction of Mr. W. H. B>yd '^ The  mineralization zone in this camp  has an exposed arei of about 120  acre*; within this area chalc-'p;,-  rite has been concentrated in rre  bodies of enormous size, carrying  fairly uniform values in gold,  silver and copper. The low-grade  character of the ore is offset by  .its fluxing qualities, the sizv and  favourable situation of the deposits and bv many economies that  can be practised ia the handling  of a large tonnage.  Sheep Greek Gold Camp. R. C.  An account (pp. 18-2L) is given  by the Director, Mr. R. W. -Brock,  of the promising Sheep Creek  Camp near Salmo. B.C., in which  are .-ma'Jiy apparently persistent  quartz veins carrying . good gold  value. It is expected that about  $2^0,000 will be recovered from  the limited operations of the  year, and the outlook is distinctly encouraging for profitable,  small mines.  A sketch contour map of Sheep  Creek mining camp, near* Salmo,  West Kootenay���scale 1 mile te  1 inch���has just been issirsd. (May  7) by the Geological Survey. It  shows the 41 gold claims staked  out north and south of Kootenay  Belle mine and Yellowstone stamp  mill,up to the end of the autumn,  1908.  ���aaja+aaamaiaimkBaaymammaittmva  j MINES m MINING!  ���������������������������������ftof ��*�������#*<��������������  The Argo trfnnel at tke south  end of the city is bow in solid  rock and two snifti are making  things look busy Say and night.  the Diamond-Texas are still  sinking and expect toon to encounter the Providence lead.  THE COAL STRIKE  The lessees ef the Crescent are  meeting with eriebnraging results  in the way of hlgH-grade ore.  The Greenwood-Phoenix Tunnel is in about 100 feet and the  work is proceeding in record-  breaking style. Kir. Armstrong  is expected back in a few days  from a trip of inquiry into tke  practicability at tiki new tunnel-  boring machine.  Tack Thompson of the Lucky  Shot Syndicate on Providence  Creek, reports the present workings on that property as very encouraging, and the ground will  be further tested with a diamond  drill.  Situation doubtful in the Crow  Various reports have appeared  in B. C. papers of recent dates as  to the miners having . gone back  to work, but as in other cases they  have proved premature and unreliable. The conference at Mac-  leod, has at least placed before  the public in no uncertain manner the fact that the operators are  determieed to have there way or  no way. The success of arbitration proceedings under such conditions is indeed problematical.  The mine workers, on the other  hand, have given the board power  to frame an agreement in its entirety, It the operators will, as  the mine workers already have  done, leave the entire matter in  the hands of the board, there will  be a settlement; otherwise it is  difficult to say what the ont come  would be.���District Ledger.

MacKenzie King was  sworn in on Wednesday as Minister of the new Department of  Labor.  The Pacific hotel this week  presented a gala appearance with  a bevy of pretty entrance students  from points surrounding Greenwood.  It is definitely announced that  the V.V. & E. will have their  steel laid to Princeton by October  W. Wilson was rounding up  horses at Midway this week.  Services will be held in the  Methodist church as usual on  Sunday next. Rev. Rutherford  will occupy the pulpit.  The improvement to the Government street tennis courts have  been completed and the formal opening will take place tomorrow.  Messrs.

Tom Walsh, of the Kootenay  hotel, has taken the Bridesville  hostelry and will conduct that  excellently situated establishment  as a first-class tourists'_resort and  wayfarer's home. The rolling  plateaus of Anarchist mountain,  where the trout are as thick as  frogs in a pond and the prairie  chickens fly in flocks like crows,  will be the mecca of the health-  seeker and the sportsman from  Spokane to the coast.  The contention that the people  of- British Columbia have the right  to a local option law is unanswerable.  The '"wheel" trouble was settled  yesterday. Judge Brown dismissed the case.  It is said that at Peach land a  would-be fruit-grower from over  the pond planted his trees upside  dtfwn and pruned the roots.  The El Dprada mine at Allegheny, Nev , produced $100,000 in  sixteen hours.  Canadian Consolidated Mining  and Smelting stock is in strong  demand and has advanced to $98  per share.

President Taft pressed an electric key in the Capitol at  Washington, and the Alaska-Yukon-  Pacific Exposition was formally opened to the guests from every part of the  world.  The opening exercises were conducted in the presence of a quarter of  a million of people. The ceremonies being held in the immense natural  amphitheatre on the shores of Lake  Washington. The "enormous crowd  stood silent and awed as the solemn  words of Invocation were uttered by  the Right Reverend Bishop Edward  J. O'Dea, Bishop of Seattle. Not a  flag or strip of bunting fluttered from  the thousand flag staffs and domes;  the entire exposition citv awaited with  suppressed eagerness the touch of the  President's hand.  With the first stroke of the bell  announcing the arrival of high noon,  the deep sounding whistle from the  University Power House taken from  the Rufiian gunboat that announced  the transfer of Alaska to the United  States years ago, gave response to the  flash from Washington, and every  wheel of the exposition machinery  was set in motion. It was the signal  for general pandemonium; and every  whistle, bell and siren of the great  manufacturies and steamers the sound  was taken up. and the great throng  gave vent to its withheld enthusiasm.  From the top of a giant flag starl two  hundred and fifty feet in height, the  largest American flag ever made,  broke loose and the exposition city  was blurred in- a cloud of flags, banners, and gay ly coloured bunting. Over the blue waters of Elliot Bay came  the thundering salute of twenty one  guns from ships of the American navy,  and re-echoing this rang back the  answering reply from the grim muzzles of the guns of the Mikado.  The program marking the most important happening of general interest  ever held in the Northwest, was particularly elaborate and interesting. Its  commencement was announced by the  firing of the National salute from the  guns of a mountain battery stationed  on the grounds, and this was the sig  nal for the movement of the military  march to the general review This  was made up of one thousand regular  troops, two batteries of mountain and  coast artille.y, two companies of cavalry, battalions of marines and sailors  from the Japanese cruisers Aso and  Soya. These were drawn up in parade rest just back of the ampitheatre.  The formal program opened with  the playing of Americana, by Innes'  Band at eleven thirty; this was followed by the Invocation by Bishop  O' Dea which was brought to a close  at the exact minute of twelve.  A magnificent display of daylight  fire works followed the throwing open of the fair, and was continued  throughout the afternoon.  The opening of the Alaska-Yukon-  Pacific Exposition was worthy of  the  occasion.        The   presenting   of   a  world's fair, complete   and   finished  was something remarkable in exposition history, and when the fair presented had justified the claims of its builders, and made good   the expectations  of being the most beautiful exposition  built, the natural   enthusiasm   of the  boundless Northwest    had   sufficient  cause for liberal expenditure.  Articles of Incorporation have  been issued to the Alaska Mining  Company with Joseph P. Kelly  President, James Drum, Vice-  President, J. P. Flood, Secretary-  Treasurer, and I. H. Hallett,  Solicitor, with offices of the company in the Bank of Commerce  building, Greenwood.  The organization is for the purpose of developing the Alaska  and Buster claims on Wallace  Mountain, West Fork of Kettle  river, The company is capitalized for 250.000 shares at a par  value of $1.00 a share, 100,000 of  which are to be held as Treasury  Stock.  The   first   50,000   shares    are  placed on the market at 10 ceuts  a share the money to be used solely in the development of the Alaska and Buster claims, on which  Joseph Kelly has  regularly done  the assessment duties since 1900.  This has been in the  nature of  shafts and open cuts which .have  proven a regular and continuous  silver-lead   strike   of ore   across  both   claims   which   varies     in  width   from two    and   one-half  feet to  four  feet, and which has  given assay   values   running  as  high as 600 oz. in silver   with   a  little gold.  The property is in shape now  to start drifting on ore, and it is  thought that $5,000 will demonstrate the property and put it on  a paying basis as a shipping mine  The Alaska-Buster is highly  recommeuded by reliable local  mining men who consider it oce  of the proven properties on Wallace Mountain, which locality has  a number of claims that show big  quantities of $30 and $40 ore  which of course ca.-'t be touched  on account of the lack of transportation facilities other Ih.iu  waggon haulage,  Tb�� proapects li<>k go vl f >r a  railroad up the West Fork next  year, aud just as soon as it comes  Wallace Mountain will become  one of the very best mining camps  in British Columbia wi'h tho  Alaska-Buster gr>up one of i's  banner properties.  Big Timber Deal  A deal involving $250,000 w: s  put through a few days ago by  which C. D. McRae of Calgary,  the well khown timber king, has  transferred his 63 timber limit on  Noitb. Thompson river to a syndicate of Toronlo men. Tbe  limits cover 40.310acres and represent over two million feet of  merchantable lumber.  METALS.

Australia's labor ministry has  been defeated by the new united  opposition under the leadership  of ex-Premier Deakin, who will  again take charge of the administration.  That the department of mines  is taking an active interest in the  Kootenay is shown in the arrival  at Nelson of O. E. Le Roy who  will make a geological survey of  Sheep Creek district.  The continuation of negotiations looking to a commercial  treaty between Germany and  Canada is a virtual admission by  the former that this Dominion is  commercially important enough  to be worth looking after.���Globe  The power of the yellow press  has made itself manifest in Eug-  land to such an extent that several prominent, members of the nobility have set themselves to the  task of steadying the overwrought nerves of the British  people,  One belated war enthusiast.  however,is still on the jingo platform, and the other day at Winnipeg delivered himself of an effusion that is second only to the  nightmares of the National Review.  It really is about time that  noble warrior earls should begin  ta make their representations  through official channels before  proceeding to alarm the peaceful  inhabitants of the Canadian  wheat belt, with their sensational reports on the incapacity of  the British navy.  Farmars Take Money to  Canada  The Grand Trunk Pacific  Branch Lines company's million  dollar issue has been largely over  subscribed.  The Financial Times referring  to the successpf the Grand Trunk  Pacific issue says evidently there  it yet plenty, of money available  in the country and also plenty of  faith in the future of Canada.  Owing to the shortage of fleur  the price is expected to go still  higher.  AfJter spending $125,000, gas  of commercial value has been discovered east of Calgary.

A benevolent old gentleman stopped  at the sight of two similiar-looking  infants in a baby-carriage.  "Ah, twins," he said to the nurse.  ''And how do you know them apart?  which is which?"  "This one," answered the nurse,  pointing, "is this and that one is that."  "Quite so," said the old gentleman. "But"���indicating the second  one���"might not thisone be this also?"  "It might," replied the giri; "but  then that one would be that."  "And how do you manage to separate them?"  "We put one in one room, and  the other in another "  "Indeed! and which one do you  put in one room?"  "Sometimes this one, and sometimes that."  ' 'And how do you know which one  you're putting in which room."  "We look and see which one is in  the other room, and then we know  that the other is in which room."  ''Good!" said the gentleman.  "But if one of them was in the house,  and the other was away somewhere,  would you be able to tell which was  in the house?"  "Oh, yes, sir!" replied the girl earnestly. "All we would have to do  would be to look at him, and then  we'd know that the one we saw was  the   one   in   the house and then, of  course, the one away somewhere  would be the other.- There are only  two of them, you see, which makes it  very easy.'.

John Svanberg, the Swedish  champion, won the ^Chicago  Marathon Derby.  A correspondent of the Victoria  Times protests against the sew  regulation placing a bounty on  tbe big horned owl and the golden eagle. It is claimed that  these splendid birds are a benefit  rather than otherwise and in any  case it would be a pity to have  them exterminated.  A.n old American farmer frotn  Des Moines, Iowa, lately walked  into the immigration offices'"' at  Winnipeg, remarking that be  wanted to buy a farm and would  first look around; that he knew  nothing of banks,'but bad confidence in the Dominion government. He therefore asked his  officials to take care care of his  old wallet until be had picked his  farm. On opening the wallet  the officials found j$25,000 in  greenbacks. It was banked for  the old man in the name of the  government. This is a good sample of the class of immigrants now  rushing into Canada from the  states. Nearly thirty homeseek-  era. from the United States reported at the immigration office at  Winnipeg Tuesday, and the smallest sum that any one of them had  in cash was #5,000.  The State of Illinois has abolished'capital punishment.  The duties under the new U.S.  tariff bill will be higher than  those impesed by the Dinglev  law which the Rept-plican administration was pledged to reduce.  There appears to ba no limit  to ihe gr<_ed of ihe piutectte  trusts, and the Payne bill will  undoubtedly cause the next po  tical battle in tbe U.S. to be a  straight fight between plutocracy  and democracy.

Tk�� B��tmimdlffiiry9&  Boundary  Creek times  Everybody  Agrees  that COD L1VBK OIL and ItON  are  beyond question the freatMt medicine* known. Then why dot* not  everybody take Cod Liver Oit and  Iron? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can diseat  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 and the Iron digestible.  While  FERROL  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and is richer in oil than any other  emuhion,and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  and Phosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds  any 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 be 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  i You Take"  SUBSCRIBE FOR THE  TIMES  i*   the Pioneer Weekly  of the Boundary Creek  Mining District.
