Returning from there yesterday,  Manager Roosa said thai they  had cut across the face pf it 58  feet on the 200-foot level, and  that it extended at least from the  80-foot to the 250-foot level. On  the ^50-foot level "the mine has  not yet been opened up where  this ore would come in. The  rock runs from $8 to $10 per ton.  A. little shipping has been done  from the new find this weety but  next week regular shipping will  be started from it.  At the company's smelter operations are being carried on with  excellent success. The tonnage,  averaging just abou�� 600 tons per  day. shows what the big furnace  is doing.        ,  The Phoenix Pioneer gives the  following details of the strike:  Since locating.vthe new strike  on the Brooklyn the forces at the  mine have been largely augmented and a-considerable amount of  development work will he carried  on. One hundred and. eighty  tons were shipped on Thursday  from the Brooklyn, and bv next  week 200 tons daily will be shipped from the new strike.  Asked as to the new ledge of  ore struck, Superintendent Rundberg. said: "The Brooklyn has  ;the,best gold values_qf^ any. tr;jne:  in camp- The assays on the new  lead located last week ran $4.40  to $4.60 gold, 40 cents to 60 cents  silver, and 2.2 per cent, copper,  the ore looks first-class, and  there is an extensive body of it."  The new lead has, been located  on the 250, 150 and 80-foot levels  and runs north and south parallel  with the Brooklyn-Idaho underground workings. Some 150 feet  of drifting has already been done  and the ledge is widening in fine  shape. Crosscutting is7 now being done to discover the width.  The lead is thought to extend  northward into the company's  Montezuma claim, and drifting  will be pushed. Raising on the  ledge has been commenced from  the 350-fopt level, and shipping  will commence on Monday. !  The entire ore body is all virgin  ground and Superintendent Rundberg is most enthusiastic as to the  results of the exploratory work  being carried on.  RAWHIDE BOOKING BETTER.  Active development work is being done at the Rawhide. "It  looks better than ever," said Mr.  Rundberg. " Every shot put in  indicates better prospects. The  Rawhide will be in shape to ship  1,000 tons daily when the copper  market improves."  WII.L, SHIP ATHELSTAN ORE.  There is at present some 500  tons of ore on the Athlestarj  dump. The ore has to be teamed  one and a half miles to the Winnipeg for shipment by the C. P.  R. The contract for teaming the  ore will be let today. Athlestan  ore runs about $8 per ton, and is  required at the smelter for fluxing.      ���    At the lower end or Okanagan  Lake, near Penticton, the C. P. R.  is building a large six-track barge  for transportation from the upper  end of the lake down. The company's ship carpenters started to  work on it this week. A barge  of this unusual size would not be  required on the lake were it not  that the company intends to commence building operations there.  Is is understood that it is being  constructed for this purpose, although it will also effect a saving  in the handling' of fruit, which  can be loaded direct from fhe  landing places to the cars.  BOUNDARY MINING  The Napoleon mine olf the'B.'C.  Copper Co., near Marcos,'Wash.,  is now shipping 100 tons a day,  most of it being purchased by the  Granby mines at Phoenix.  The Smelter of the' Dominion  Copper Co. this week treated  3,808 tons, distributed as fallows:  Brooklyn 1,274, -Rawhicje 1,857,  Sunset 612, Mountain Rose 65  tons.     .    ���    ,  The smelter of the B. C. Copper Co. this week treated 13,501  tons of ore, - distributed as .follows: . Mother Lode, 9,345 tons;  Oro Denoro, 3,941 ton^; others,  215 tons.  The B. C��� Copper Co. will erect  at the Mother Lode a: lew reservoir tank to contain 35,000 gallons. This, with the ;:5,000-gal-  lon tank, and the pumps in operation, will give the Mother Lode a  water supply and a pressure that  will, equal,, if not surpass, that of  most cities. j  . ���   ���,  The Diamond-Texas syndicate  has a successful meeting on Wednesday night, at. which, a number  of members of the- syndicate in  arrears came up, and several  other people were admitted.  Everything was reorganized and  newgwork will 'be started' on  August 2nd. The next meeting  is on August 1st.      " f  Assessment .work is being- done  on the Silver Reef, two miles  from Greenwood; by Thos; Edwards and W. E; George. About  $500 has already been expended  in development yyork,' consisting  of a 42-fbot shaft7 and surface  work. The vein - carries silver,  copper and gold values, with copper coming in stronger as depth  increases. - A, whim :was set up at  the mine last week.   "  ~Wi th* aview; -to; -a VaSting- accidents,; the British Columbia Cop  per Company today posted notices  that visitors to the reduction  works or mines of the company  must obtain a written permit from  the office; before going on the  works. In this way it is hoped  to make it reasonably certain that  anyone visiting the works will  have guidance necessary for their  protection.  J. W. Douglas, E. R. McLean  and Chas. Lewain, of, New York,  were in the camp this week and  visited the Lakeview and Dividend claims six miles north of  Oroville. About 12 men are kept  at work on the property, which is'  on the Canadian side.j The ore is  heavy sulphide, bearing copper  and gold. It is understood that  F. Keffer, M.E..visited the property with' them.  The Boston News Bureau says  the B.C. Copper Co. is making  copper for 9J4 cents and making  30 tons of it a day. Costs are one  thing that the smelters don't tell  and no information can be gathered here. The general impression  that Due picks up is that though  the company is making an exceptionally good record at the present time, the News-Bureau's figures like all mining papers are  pjobably optimistic.  James D. Sword expects to return tomorrow to the West Fork  and will put a number, of men to  work at the Bell mine on Wallace  Mountain near Beaverdell. Mr.  Sword has been gathering together some outfit necessary and  making preparations for work. It  is now generally felt that the  West Fork will experience quite  an uplift with the building of the  railway.  The tonnage of'the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter this week makes  a record for the company, 13,501  tons, or a daily average of 1,928  tons. The new organization of  the company's mines and works  effected after the long shut-down  is making itself felt, and tonnage of this kind can be looked  for regularly now. None of the  Boundary smelters will make public actual figures as to their costs,  but it is understood that there are  other favorable records being  made, as there must be, if the  company is to make meney on the  present price of copper.  PROTECTION  AGAINST F-IRE  Greenwood's Water Pressure  As Good as Many Large  Cities  CITY COUNCIL.  . In the light of tbe recent disastrous fire at Grand Forks, the  question raised by a local contemporary, as to the condition of  Greenwood's fire fighting apparatus is important. It may be added that investigation finds this  highly necessary equipment in a  fully satisfactory condition and  the1 fire and light committee of  the council alive to their responsibilities and the needs'of the  community.  Greenwood has. a constant  available reserve, water supply today of 380,000 gallons and a pressure which varies from a 100 to  140 pounds according to the elevation of the hydrants. To empty the Twin creek reservoir alone,  with a one inch stream and with  no water cdming in, would take  over 10 hours. It contains 200,-  000 gallons, and as a matter of  fact, there is a constant stream pf  water entering it. The pressure  on Copper street and in the places  where it is most needed is trom  122 to 135 pounds ; at the school  house and at the south end of the  t&wn it runs up to 138 or 140 lbs.  The lowest pressurte is near the  City Hall.where the buildings are  not situated closely to one another  and where fire fighting1 would be  easy.  The city has 18 hydrants, which  are tested frequently in the winter time, and used by the sprinkling cart constantly in the Bummer time. There are eight alarm  boxes, - which ��� X^eiv. tested , on. an  average of-once a week, a test  being put on this service every  night in ringing the curfew.  The letter of the Fire Chief, published in this issue, gives a clear  statement of the. care with which  the hose and other apparatus of  the Brigade is examined.  The Fire and Light committee  has now under order considerable  new equipment and is making investigations regarding other purchases. Some new nozzles, appliances . for handling the hose,  and a ladder truck are under'or-  der. Some new hose, which the  committee are purchasing, will  allow the supply of eight streams  of water on Copper street.  The Fire Chief, when asked of  any improvements that might be  made, said that the committee  had given -the Brigade a more  kindly hearing this year than  usual, and were considering the  purchase of a Deluge set which  would give a service quite as  effective as that supplied by' the  water towers in the big cities. Including the experdifure amounting to about $300, now being undertaken in purchasing the ladder truck, etc., $600 would give  the Brigade a first-class equipment. The Fire Chief would  advise the placing of a few more  hydrants, one on the corner at the  Pioneer Hotel, to get at tbe back,  of the buildings on Copper street,  and one on Silver street, near  Cropley's old feed store. It is  much cheaper to place hydrants  than to buy long strings of hose  and it gives a quicker and more  effective service.  Comparing the service as to  pressure, etc., with that of other  places, the Chief thought that  Greenwood by its natural situation had a pressure that could  be found even in very tew large  cities r.nd one that should give  the citizens cause for satisfaction  Everyone feels, hower, that the  Council should'not stint themselves in any way in the spending of  a few hundred dollars to make  security doubly sure in the mat.  ter of fire protection. A few hundred dollars spent iu making the  city's equipment first class and in  reimbursing the brigade for pra-  tice might save a heavy loss  whenever a fire does oca-,;'.  Council opened onv Monday  night, with Alderman Gully in  the chair, th..- Mayor; and Alderman Wilson reporting later and  making a fuil council with the  exception .of Alderman Sutherland.  There was no important business. The Council heard a request from Mr. Biner re the  semi-annual license of $75 for  transacting a wholesale liquor  business. The Council could see  no way out of it, arid Mr. Biner  thought he'd have to come up.  The city pound has been doing  a mint of business and  the receipts are becoming an embarass-  ment.   The city shares with the  pound keeper, and the man who  pounds   the  animal,   each   taking $1.  The Chief pf Police will have  telephone installed; the fire and  ght committee will get what is  required for the fire department,  and property owners are requested  to clean paper and inflammable  matter from their premises,  BOUNDARY  FALLS ROAD  Railway Commission Will  Protect Public and See  Rpad is Built  A SAD ACCIDENT  Just before dusk, on Saturday,  William T. White, the only son  of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. White, sank  while swimming in the pool on  Copper creek, just behind the  smelter. He was in the water in  the neighborhood oi half an hour  when his body was-irescued, life-  being extinct. About the' manner in which the accident happened, there is considerable doubt,  but the water-where he sank was  nearly 22 feet deepj and rescue  very difficult. Deceased was a  strong, large boy, and was one ot  the'successful candidates at bhe  recent entrance examination, and  his death, Tcoming just when he  .wasT.looking!^i&>a.-g^ej|ti^e��jvof:  ambition and courage to the life  ahead of him, is very sad/ His  funeral was held on Tuesday  afternoon at 2:30 from his father's  residence to the Methodist church,  his pall bearers being W, Watson, H. McG'illivray, Rod. Mc-  Cutcheonl Frank Thompson, J.  Day and W. G. Swayne. In their  sore bereavement, Mr. and Mrs.  White have the sincerest sympathy of a large circle of friends  both of themselves and their boy.  It is understood that on Wednesday the C. P. R. had a contractor looking over the wagon  road at Boundary Falls, B. C.  The secretary of the Board of  Trade received the letters given  below from Duncan Ross, M. P.,  and from the Railway Commission, which explain themselves.  Ottawa, July 17, 1908.  Dear Sir���I have your letter  of 9th inst., and in reply I beg  to state that I have urged upon  the Board of Railway Commissioners the necessity of prompt  action on the part of the G. P. R.  in connection with the construction of the road in-the vicinity of  Boundary Falls. I am advised  that the C. P. R. have signified  their intention of doing this work.  However, I think that they have  received further instructions from  the Board of Railway Commissioners in connection therewith.  .-..���. Yours very truly, .  Duncan Ross.  The Conservative nomination  at Nelson .makes the Kootenay  look pretty nearly like a sure  thing for Smith Curtis. A. B.  Goodeve, of Rossland, received  .the nomination, none ot the Nelson men thinking it worth while  contesting the seat with Smith  Curtis in the running.  Ottawa July 16, 1908.  Dear Sir���Re complaint of the  Greenwood Board of Trade:  I beg to acknowledge the receipt of vour letter of the 9th  inst., stating that at a general  meeting of the Greenwood Board  of Trade, held at Greenwood,  B.C, on the 8th inst.. it was  unanimously resolved to bring before the attention of the Board  the dangerous state of the road  at Boandarjr^ail^  minion Copper Co.'s smelter.  In reply I beg to state that the*  Board will at once take this matter up with the company, and  also, if necessary, have it investigated by one of its engineers at  the earliest possible moment.  * ' Yours truly,   .  A. W. Carman.  The Hon. Secretary,  the Greenwood Board of Trade,  Greenwood, B. C.  There will be a meeting of the  Fish and Game Association in the  City Hall oh Monday evening  next, at 8 o'clock.

Pbb Ysa.it :....    2 00  Six Mouths -  1 25  To FORBION COCKTKJKS.. 2 50  Editor  A. D. Macfarlane  FRIDAY. JULY 24,1908  Friends of Duncan Ross in the  Kootenay have been calling the  Nelson News up short for its recent abusive editorials on Mr.  Ross in connection with the deferred election in Yale-Cariboo.  P. J. Deane, former proprietor of  the News, and Dr. Hugh Watt,  of Fort Steele, have written  formal communications to the  News on the subject, and many  other of the stauuehest supporters of the Kootenay district and  of the newspaper, which in days  past was its pride, will feel that  the News has fallen very greatly  in lending itself to the cheap and  nasty methods of political warfare it has employed.  The News opens its editorial  on Duncan Ross' defenders by saying " that the Liberals of Eastern, and particularly of Southeastern British Columbia, are  gradually awakening to the unpleasant certainty that in the  next Dominion parliament Yale-  Cariboo and Kootenay are most  likely to be represented by Conservatives, and hence we have  another protest, -which we publish this morning, upon the stand  taken in these columns against  Duncan Ross' cowardly postponement of the Yale-Cariboo election."  No one, uot even the News, believes that any such  reason  or  question, to protest against the  unmeasured and abusive articles  appearing in that paper. These  men are men who have had a large  part in making the Kootenay,  and in spite of the assertion of  the News about that long, hard  laugh that it imagined would resound throughout Yale-Cariboo at  its bidding, there are more of  their kind in Yale-Cariboo who  realize the absolute impossibility  of holding the elections on the  day of the general elections in  this constituency as in the districts of Gaspe, Sa _uenay, Chi-  contimi, Comox-Atlin and Kootenay.  Speaking of the support given  the deferred holding of the elections by Mt. Macpherson, of Vancouver,  the News   said:     "Mr.  Macpherson in this matter is helping out Mr.  Duncan  Ross, who  cannot be elected in Yale-Cariboo  unless the election is postponed  and who will likely not be elected  even if the   government   U  returned.    Mr. Macpherson wants  to give Mr. Ross another chance,  especially as that gentleman will  not now be allowed to tamper with  the voters' lists, and he, therefore,  represents the situation in Yale-  Cariboo to be what every resident  of the constituency knows it is  not."   Then the News proceeds  to   call   Mr. Macpherson a- liar.  Well, well!  as  the Podunk Clarion would remark,  comment on  such  an observation is unnecessary.  ! An attempt is made to compare  the constituency of Yale-Cariboo  today   with   the  Kootenay  and  Yale of 1896.    Such a comparison  is obviously  worthless.    In  1896 there was  nothing like the  settlement in the inaccessible districts that is there today. In 1904  there was no such settlement  as  will be found along the  lines of  the G.  T.  P.   when the election  occurs.    In the judgment of the  government, its is  impossible to  have the ballots properly distributed to these  distant points in  time to have the elections seven  days after the nominations.    The  matter is one for real and legitimate discussion and not for ven*  omous and heated abuse.  O ver Mr. Ross' justification few  electors in Yale-Cariboo will  worry. But the eagerness of the  attack directed against this arrangement reveals very clearly the  hollowness of Conservative pretensions regarding the defeat of  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's government.  They expect only an overwhelming victory. It also illustrates  the avidity with which the campaign againt Mr. Ross will be  conducted.    And why?   Sir John  always remembered that  when a  boy he found the most clubs under the best trees.    Mr.  Ross  at  Ottawa has made himself a very  effective member,   both  for  his  constituency and in the larger  affairs of the country.  It was he,  above all others,   who destroyed  the shallow pretense of the Bowser tactics on the question of Immigration.   He. got railway communication for the Boundary and  the Similkameen.    He  has followed his vast constituency from  end to end  and looked carefully  after the needs of  its development.    In his work as member,  he has been tireless, efficient and  effective,  and  these   things the  Opposition contemn beyond comprehension.   And no truer word  could be spoken of Duncan Ross  than that of Dr.  Watt, of Fort.  Steele, to the editor of the News:  " Why, sir, ev'ery'mau who knows  him (as you, evidently dd not),  knows that no man is less afraid  to 'fight beasts at Ephesus'   (an  ancient Sir John application  of  scripture), or the pack of howlers  who would be let loose on him  after   the   close   of the  general  campaign elsewhere."  Whatever  may be said of Duncan Ross, it  cannot be said  that he is either  small or a coward.  The New York Sun pokes fun  at the Canadian House of Commons. It finds, however, one  likeness between it and the Congress. It says: "The speaker  reads prayers. The chaplains of  congress have been known "to include political oratory in their  invocations. There is this similarity between the American  House and the Canadian���most "of  the members come in after the  prayer.  If the meek shall inherit the  earth   the  Conservative   papers  should be well paid for their attitude over the utter failure of the  Hodgins investigation. In a condensed inside page article, the  Nelson News perhaps thinks the  Government might assist, rather  than attempt to block investigation. With an eight months''session of parliament, surely it is  time that the men who make  charges be required to hit the ball  or pass up their bat to the next  man. Major Hodgins was fanned  out, and it's his turn to sit down.  story of the days that followed  is known to every school boy and  from the persistence of these men  through continuous hardship, the  following reflections gather:  "Such men must be measured  by different standards than  we  are accustomed to apply to life".  'Their passion is not to get���it is  to do.    The most of us are hurrying "about with our little scoop  nets trying to gather in as much  of the flotsam of life as comes  within our puny reach; while men  of this sort only give our selfish  labours   and  rotting   heaps   of  refuse a passing glance of scorn  as they stride on the fields where  quarried stone may be laid on  quarried stone in   solid permanence.

There Is no way of making lasting  friends like "Making Good;" and Doctor  Pierce's medicines well exemplify this,  and their friends, after more than two  decades of popularity, are numbered oy  the hundreds of thousands. They have,  "made good" and they have not made  drunkards.  A good, htonest, square-deal medicine of  known composition is Dr. Pierce's Uolden  Medical Discovery. It still enjoys an immense sale, while most of the preparations that have come into prominence ih  the earlier-period of its popularity have  "gone by the board" and are never more1  heard of. There, must to some reason for  this long-time popularity and that is to  be found in its superior merits. When  once given a fair trial for weak stomach,  or for liver and blood affections, its superior curative qualltiesjire soon manifest;  hence it has survived and grown in popular favor, while scores of less meritorious  articles have suddenly flashed into favor  for a brief period and then been as soon,  forgotten.  For a torpid liver with its attendant  indigestion, dyspepsia, headache, perhaps dizziness, foul breath; nasty coated  tongue, with bitter taste, loss of appetite,  with distress after, eating, nervousness  and debility, nothing is so good as Dr.  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.. It's  un honest, square-deal medicine with all  its ingredients printed on bottle-wrapper  ��� no secret, no hocus-pocus humbug,  therefore don't accept -a substitute that  the dealer may possibly make a little bigger profit. Insist on your right to have  what you call for.  Don't buy Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription expecting it to prove a "cure-all." It  is only advised for woman's special ailments. It makes weak women strong and  s*3k women well. Less advertised than  some preparations sold for like purposes,  its sterling curative virtues still maintain  its position in the front ranks, where it  stood 6ver two decades ago. As an invigorating tonic and strengthening nervine it is unequaled. It won't satisfy those  who want "booze,''for there Is not a drop  of alcohol in it.

In  the Tercentenary pageants  that have been in rehearsal for a  week, and are now in progress at  at Quebec, there is a contrast that  has been striking some of the press  writers   into   making reflections  over the excellence   of a life bf  sacrifice.     The    pageant   finds  Champlain   enjoying   life   as   a  geographer to the king of the  most civilized and luxurious court  of   the  day,   of  Henry IV.,   of  France.  He belonged to that fine  old   class   of   men   of   learning  whose   position   in   life  was  as  pleasant and as full of satisfaction  as many men r:ould  wish.  But it was not  for Champlain;  in his blood there  was a fire that  would not let him rest jn  the lap  of luxury.    His place at court he  used only to persuade the king to  forward his efforts to go and  to  build in Canada an empire for  France and a new kingdom for  the church.    Into the long winters  of the new country the pageant brings Champlain.     The  of the  He was really an Empire-builder.  Then Lord Cromer must have had  something of that spirit. There  are mett; of this character scattered throughout the country today who,are flunking more of. the  future of the nation than of their  own little pile of 'chips'; hut  they lack the opportunity or the  ability to build high enough for  the idlers to see. We stumble  over their work on the way to  the ' show grounds,' and heartily  curse them for cranks. But they  are the ' village Champlains' of  the present, scorning our ruder  Fontainebleaux in this tinsel age,  and building as best they can the  superstructure of the nation which  Champlain died to found."  William Whyte, second vice-  president ., of the C. P. R., puts  the western crop total at 125,000,-  000 bushels. Harvesting will be  fairly general throughout the  Wes^ by August 15, and there  will be no grain blockade.

Fruit Industry
t Elbert Hubbard, who has many
occupations connected with the
Philistine idea, and wbo has a
love for unusual things, appreciates Mormons and sometimes-his
Mormonia is worth reading. Recently, in the Philistine, he has
.been writing of some of the ideas
*he Mormons are putting into successful   operation.     Part  of   it
; touches <5n fruit raising, and runs
ttiusly: "Adam Smith said tbat
_abor applied to land is the source
of all 'wealth. Brigham Young
said that waiter and labor, ap-
pliedintelligently to desert land,
would same ' day be America's
greatest source of wealth. That
, Brigham Young was a genuine,
sure enough class A prophet no
one who visits Utah can doubt.
There are thousands of acres of
' farming land around Salt Lake
that are worth two hundred dol-
- lars and more an acre simply because the land produces sure-returns • on that sum. Brigham
Young was tbe first man in America to tackle the matter of irriga-
' tion in a scientific way. " He said
, to his, people, * Most miners die
4 poor; but *>raise fruit, vegetables
and cattle and feed the miners
and you will all get rich.' Brigham Young was a planter of
trees, He knew that floVers,
trees and vines are civilizers. The
Mormons have colleges at Salt
Lake City, Logan and Provo that
are radiating centres of inspira-
Xp. order to produce men,
these Mormons raise fruit. ' Less
hell and more hogs,' was the advice of a great Southern statesman to his constituents. There
are bver five thousand students
enrolled at these Utah universities. Th£ system of teaching
sets a pace for Christendom. For
ins'tance, at Provo.' when the
president of the college wanted a
sewer dug a mile long, he staked
it out, selected twenty boys as
foremen, called^for five hundred
volunteers, and lo! tbe job was
done jn half a day. The students
plant trees, lay sidewalks, make
roads and dig irrigating ditches
by the same t6ken. Co-operation,
youth, strength, good cheer—
Farther on Hubbard refers to
twe very big ideas the Mormons
are working out, and the second
;of them is enough for this time—■
the economic value of dwarf fruit
trees.   Of it the writer writes:
"The second big thing the
Mormons are doing refers to a
little thing—dwarf fruit trees?;
The idea was born in Japan, carried to Paris, where apple" trees
were grown in flower ;pdts, and
fond lovers sent peaches on the
tree to fair dames.
"An orchard of cherry trees,
all three feet high, covered with
white blossoms or red with fruit,
is a sight to gladden your heart
for a year. New Zealand -first
took the matter up as a commercial venture, shipping a perfect
fruit to London, and now Utah is
doing thet same. "■
"The advantages are these:
a tree a year old bears fruit, the
tree being so small that you can
look down all over 'it, allows you
to pick off the imperfect specimens and also properly spray it,
preventing, the San Jose scale
and destroying other parasites.
The quick returns it gives make
it specially desirable in a new
country. For school gardens or
as an ornament anjl asset to village homes, it is superb.
" In planting the standard orchard you count on forty trees to
the acre. With dwarf trees you
plant a thousand to an acre and
cultivate them as you do corn.
Most of the apples on an average
tree in New York state are scrubby and imperfect. A very little
work and your bantam tree gives
you every apple perfect. Apples
that weigh a pound are the regulation yield. Acre for acre, the
bantam beats the big tree and has
it skuna mile."

/ Irrigation In the West
. A recent Government blue book
gives" some very interesting ■ information in reference to the
progress of irrigation in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Five
years ago there were in .these
provinces 169 irrigation ■ ditches,
having a combined length of 469:
miles, and capable of: irrigating
some 614,00p acres. • Now there
are 272 of these ditches orcanals,
having a total length of 322
miles, and, capable of irriga" ing
3,033,008 acres. Of these Alberta
has 167 ditches, capable of. irrigating 2,998,321 acres, and Saskatchewan' has 405, with" an irf ii
gation capacity of 34,688 acres.
It is claimed that the great C. P.
R. irrigation scheme east of Calgary will; when completed, be
the largest individual irrigation
enterprise on this continent. It
has a length, east and west, of
150 miles, and an average width,
north and south, of 40 miles.
The total length, of waterways
covered by this scheme will be
aboui 2,900 miles. It has been
found, however, that irrigation
is not always, a hecessityj even in
the dry belts, but the irrigation
insures a profitable -crop even in
the dryest years. There is little
doubt that these irrigation
schemes are doing much to assist
in the development of some of
the finest agricultural sections in
Canada,    v
A bit of sensible financing appears in the announcement that
tb/j usual quarterly dividend of
the International C«al and Coke
Company, payable August 1, has
been cut down from 2 per cent, to
\%. per cent., and the balance, of
24_of 1 per cent., will-be applied
to the payment of the company's
bonds, according to a decision
reached at the last meeting of the
directors, says tbe Review. The
company owes a bonded indebtedness of $200,000, and it was
deemed better policy to meet this
from the dividends than to dispose of treasury stock at the present depressed condition of the,
market. The company is incorporated for 3,000,000 shares and
200,000 shares are -si-ill' in the
treasury. The company was not
willing to part with this block of
stock at 75 cents a share, which
was the best figure, likely to be
realized, it is stated. The dividend to be; declared, therefore,
for next quarter will 'be .ifor but
$35,000, and $21,000 will be applied on the bonded debt. It, is
stated that the dividend may be
still further curtailed at a future
date to increase these payments.
Regarding the operations of the
company, F. E. P. McMaine, who
is in charge of the Spokane office
of the company, saidr;
" The mine is turning' out 2,000
tons pf coal a day, including that
supplied to the coke ovens, and

On Thursday of last week, the
Granby Company weighted Judge
Williami, of. Phoenix, down with
about $12,000 for the Golden
Eagle Fraction, which they added to their already large holdings. The Golden Eagle is about
a half claim and adjoins the
Granby property, also adjoining
the Stemwinder and Montezuma,
at the northern part of the camp.
No development work has been
done on the claim, but it is con-
sidered^ to be a valuable acquisition to the Granby properties.

Mr.  Manuel. The guests afterward  sat down to a dainty wedding  breakfast, the happy pair subsequently leaving on the afternoon  train on a trip to the Sound  cities."  The Fire Chief's Defense.

Greenwood     touched  home once in the first,  again in  the third, and doubled it in the  seventh, making four runs, while  the Chesaw nine were shut out.

C.* July 23, 1908.  The Editor of The Times:  The following is an answer to  a paragraph itr " The Ledge,"  referring to the Fife Department  in particular. The questions; are.  well put, and* the answers should  be known by every citizen.  As for my part, here they are:  1st. The* racing cart is the  property of individual members  bf the Fire Department. It broke  down in being taken up the bill  and the wheels are being repaired. The owners contemplate  purchasing a new one and will  sell the wreck to Mr. Lowery, if  he wishes it, at a reasonable price.  2nd. The captain of the racing  team is responsible for the cart.  3rd. The city's fire fighting  apparatus is well looked after, as  its long continuous service will  demonstrate.  4th. Practices of the Fire Brigade will take place as soon as we  get the ladder truck.  5th. Hydrants are now in  charge of the Superintendent of  Waterworks. .. '.  6th. The hose is in good shape  and requires constant attention.  7th. If the Fire Chief did not  knw the water supply and pressure, he should be replaced by  _>he who does.  8th. Have tbe fire and light  committee any knowledge in reference to water pressure? Ask  them in open council.  9th. Has the hose on the two  emergency carts been unwound  and examined at a recent date,  say within six months? Yes, one  of them within a week. ,  .Any further questions within  my jurisdiction will be cheerfully  answered, or anything to provide  better fire protection for the city  will be carried out, if we get the  necessary support from the city to  do so.
