WILL OPEN -UP GREAT  MINING PROPERTIES  Vast   Mountains  of   Rich  Copper Deposits Await  the Coming of the  Iron Horse.  Twenty miles of steel on the  Kettle Valley railway line will  be laid by the end of the month.  Track laying is going along  simultaneously from both ends  of the route between Midway and  Merritt.  Work commenced at the Midway end this week and has made  good progress. A big track laying machine is being operated  with a large force of men, and  under favorable conditions the  ten miles of steel to Rock Creek  will be completed before the ead  of January. The machine will  lay a mile of steel a day, but the  severe weather of the past week  has retarded progress.  At the Merritt end of the Kettle Valley line, seven miles of  steel is already laid, and the  other three miles of the ten mile  section will be completed in another week. In tbe meantime  clearing and further construction  goes on apace, and another ten  mile of track will be laid in the  early summer, so that it is expected an efforfc will be made to  rush to completion the short cut  Boundary-coast railway link.  This railway not only gives  this section of British Columbia  coast connections, but opens up  a great mineral field that has  long needed thj railway in order  that mines might be operated on  a paying basis. The vastness of  the copper deposits of the district traversed by this railway  will soon be a realization iu fact,  as enough work has already been  done to warrant the statement  that this valley will soon be one  of the largest producers of copper  ore in the province.  the best ever recorded by the  (Jammings of \ company.

Diplomacy has secured a victory over arbitration in the fisheries dispute between Canada,  Newfoundland and the United  States. .  A statement issued by the state  department at Washington discloses that a complete agreement  has been reached between Canada and the United States, and  sufficient adjustment of difficulties with Newfoundland has been  affected to make unnecesssary a  recourse to the mixed committee  of the Hague tribunal.  Negotiations will be continued, Sir Edward Morris, premier  of Newfoundland having returned  home to confer with the members  of his cabinet.  GVO.Li��LitlO   MARCONI  The Father of Wireless Telegraphy  This is the age cf the elimination of the essentials. We have horseless  (carriages, trackless trolleys, inkless printing, loveless marriages, grapelesa  Wine, clocks without hands, apples without seeds, and, greatest of all, telegraphy without wires. Marconi, who succeeded in performing this miracle of  science which has been tlie dream of electrical experimenters since 1746, is  a young Italian, born at Bologna and not yet thirty years old. His father  is an Italian landed proprietor and his mother is the daughter of James  Jameson, the famous Irish, whislcey distiller.  At eight years of age, Guglielmo showed tbe first faint.Duds of promise  of inventive genius; at twelve his tutor attempted to rob him of one of his  devices; at sixteen lie was absorbed in chemical, electrical and mathematical  problems; and at twenty he was almost taxing the faith and love of bis  mother with the seemingly insane proposition cf attempting to telegraph  without wires, through-hills and forests, across streams and over fields.  When he was twenty-one he went to England and somehow managed to  Interest Sir William Preece, engineer of the British telegraph system, 8uffi-<  ciently to secure his co-operation. When Marconi succeeded in sending a message two miles���a success sufficient to irritate him by the golden visions of  greater distances yet to master���he was like Moses viewing the Promised Land  which seemed impossible for him to enter. It seemed hopeless to persist  further and he was discouraged almost to despair, but stuck loyally to the  problem until the high-water mark of conquered distance rose to one hundred and twenty-five miles.  On December 13. 1901. the scientific world was astounded by the news  that Marconi had succeeded in talking to Englnnd from Newfoundland across  2,000 miles of air ant! water. There was a swiile of compassionate tolerance  for the inventor who imagined he had done ���!.'=, the smile of one who does not  wish to arouse another from tha empty happhi<-..-s of a pleasant dream. But  soon it was science that awoke to the realization of the marvel, and the fresh  morning newspaper printed from news carried to the vessel by "marconl-  grams" and served with the fresh rolls on (he breakfast table in midocean,  proves anew the woiuler that grows greater as its lield broadens and develops.  Marconi was the first to send a recorded message through space by electro-  m2.~r.c';ic waves fin 1?!M); the first, to telegraph from a moving ship (iv  1S&7j, and the first to :i;.Lcd a wireless messa;^- across the Atlantic.

Tbe whole reciprocity agtLation  on this side of the border has as  its aims the plundering of the  Canadian forest. This is privately  admitted by confidential agents  of the United States newspapers  to be the whole rasion d'etre for  the reciprocity negotiations.

It is stated by acute observers  that while a reciprocal agreement  with Canada is even more likely  than appeared at the begining of  the negotiations, the immediate  put Come will be important only  Copper Dividend.  Directors of the British Columbia Copper company held their  regular monthly meeting in New  York, after which an official  stated that consideration of the  dividend question was postponed  until the January meeting.  ���Another official of the company  is credited with saying that the  company has paid for the enlargement of its furnaces and the  cyanide plaut at the Napoleon  mine; that it is entirely free trom  floating debt, and is accumlating  a dividend fund, of which over  ,$300,000 is ou hand.  It will be remembered  that it  propitious for a record production  this month.  I MINES AND MINING!  2 *  a s  ��a��a����$��ao������������Ov**��9��<i* ��  The following taken from the report of Province mineralogist of B. C.;  The aggregate mineral production in  the province during 1910 was estimated at a total value of $26,183,50*.  II revised returns prove this figure to  be approximately correct, the total for  the year will be the highest yet recorded in thc history of mining in  British Columbia, as it will compare  favorably with that of 1907 which, at  ?25,882,560 is the highest on record  hitheito. Thc province continues to  maintain its average proportion of the  mineral production of the whole of  Canada. Place the aggregate value  of the Dominion for the 25 years,  1886 to 1910' at 81,150,000,000,  which allows about $95,000,000 for  1910, and British Columbia may fairly  claim to have produced between 27  and 28 pet cent, of this large sum.  The aggregate value of thc Province's production for all years inclusive of 1910, was nearly S3 74,000,-  000 and during the last 25 years, the  worth was ��310,000,000.  The Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., made an output of 152,000  tons of ore from the Snowshoe mine,  and about 1000 tons from the No. 7.  The latter was connected with the C.  P. R. at Boundary Falls by an aerial  tramwav about three miles long.  Preparations were"made to mine ore  at the company's Phoenix Amalgamated group for shipment to Trail.  The copper production has been es-  timated.'at 39.000,000 lbs., and of  this, 3,600,000 lbs-, could be credited  to Rossland. Some 4,000,000 lbs.,  of zinc were produced of which the  Van Roi contributed 1,362,000 lbs.  Application in large numbers are  been made for license to prospect for  coal and oil at Midway. Some ten  are already gazetted.  Mr. F. C Congdon/M. P., says  a record was made last season in  dredging in the Yukon. It extended  over 233 days. It is remarked that a  gold dredge can work to every advantage there up to two weeks of  Christmas. There are difficulties in  the Yukon not experienced in other  countries, but it is being proved that  they can be overcome.  The British Columbia Copper  company's smelter treated 11,237 tons  of ore last week as follows: Mother  Lode, 6,888; Jack Pot, 243; Rawhide, 3,658; Napoleon, 448.  iu patents issued for such locations of a royalty on the sale of  products thereof during tbat  period.  It is reported that diamond  drilling on the Hidden Creek  properties, now under bond U��  the Graahy Co., hav��.> been even  better than anticipated. O. 'Ii.  Smith, Ir., will inspect the wo'i k  again sometime this month  Copper is tinner. Lake is 13  to 13'6 cents, and electrolytic is  12K to 12>* ivuls a pound. A  renewal of European buying is  reported. Exports during December, according to me^al exchange statistics, were tbe sreond  largest of any month las' year,  and notwithstanding this there  was a further decrease of 5,494,-  720 pounds iu the foreign, visible  supply.  According to a report issued by  the Quebec government free gold  is associated with s\lvanue iu  viensof quartz ankerite in Northern Quebec, 50 miKs imni e st  of Cobalt. Tbe discoveries are  near Opasatikale lake, nnd are  not entirely new. The .govern-;  ment reports state lhat the formation is essentially similar to that  at Porcupine, as the free gold occurs in conjunction with the s><\-  vauite in quartz ankerite.  :.*rv-% r4  '������ ..?::  Dredging of lhe rivers TuK-  meen and Simlikameen will s'art  in the spring.  Returns on three tons of ore  recently sent to the Granby smelter at Grand Forks from the Gold  Ax mine, on Copper mountain are  reported to have gone ��77 to the  ton. The ledge has been opened  up in three different places on  the property, showing values as  high as $S5 in gold, with some  copper  Chateguay Smith is overhauling the lvrc-i-niont plant and getting in shape to install the e\ec-  trie cable which is imperative before any miniug can be don.\ A.  few weeks will hcp all in good  running order at this well  thought of property.  The Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel  is now in 1100 feet and satisfactory progress is made daily.  Not Quite there  The house committee of naval  affairs at Washington, completed  the examination of Capt. R. E.  Perry on his claim to attainment  of the north pole. Hugh C. Mitchell, a skilled computer of coast  survey, testified that he handled  Peary's observation. Mr. Mitchell said that he has figured that  Peary, when he made his furthermost camp, was less than five  miles from the pole and that in  marches on the day of the climax  of his trip, he passed with in one  and one-sixteenth miles of the  actual pole.  Mr. Mitchell believed that  Peary's observations could not be  faked. The committee will hear  Admiral Chester and review the  testimony at an early meeting  with a view to passing on the  bill proposing Peary's retirement  as a rpar-admiral.  Approximately $95,000 was paid by  the Phoenix bank to employees of the  local mining companies last week,  representing the payroll for December. Of this amount Granby disbursed $50,000; New Dominion  (Rawhide and Athelstan) $19,000;  Consolidated company (Snowshoe,  No. 7 and Phoenix amalgamated),  $18,000; B. C. Copper (Jack Pot),  $8,000. It was probably a record  payroll in Phoenix.  Late reports from the Midway  coal propertie state that a'very influential syndicate has been formed at Spokane to outfit the mine with the most  approved machinery to the value of  25 to 30 thousand dollars and the  working gang increased to twenty  men or over.     The year just closed in the  the Rossland district was a good  one. The outlook for mining in  British Columbia during 1911 is  particularly bright, and much  activity is expected   next spring.  In order to encourage the copper mining industry tbe ��over:i-  ment at Ottawa lias ruled tbat  no royalty shall bo rharged ou  products of copper mining locations for a period of ttL   vears,  Or the 257,000 ounces ot lode  gold estimated to have been the  total production in the province  Tor 1910, 139,000 ounces were obtained from thc U. S. treated at  the Trail smelter.  The tramway between the Lone  Star and Boundary Falls will be  completed this month at a cost  uf 70 thousand dollars.

Americans are considering the  ways of Canadians, which may  he said to be the beginning of  republican wisdom. The jolt recently given our express companies by the Dominion Railway  (Vmmission has attracted in a  marked manner the attention of  all American newspapers which  have been wrestling in au abstract way with powerful trusts,  but without making any substantial progress  towards  a solution ���       t of thg Cana<lian Pacific rail.  a whole was never brighter, and  there are no forebodings of evil  for the future. The volume and  character of business, both domestic and foreign, is more encouraging than ever before, and  with the exercise of moderation  and patience, even more fatisfac-  tory results may be secured.  The west is not disposed to  brag about the part it plays in  making Canada prosperous, but  a word of suggestion to the suspicious few who arc inclined to  belittle western progress and  achievement may not be out of  place. Let some statistician prepare a statement showing details  of the trade of the Dominion, internal nnd external, eliminating  the prairie provinces and British  Columbia. The tabulation would  create much surprise, especially  in eastern Canada.  published   at   Woodstock,    Ont.  The opening  article deals  with  the outfit required   for   the backwoods.    This  is   followed   by   a  number of experiences in hunting,  fishing, canoeing  and mountaineering throughout Canada, while  a paper on the birds of Manitoba  and some light verses materially  add to the interest of the number.  There are a number of  items recording  occurrences out  of   the  common, showing how vastly experiences in the woods may differ  and others reminding  sportsmen  of  similar  events on  their own  trips.    The whole will act like a  tonic iu the   winter   mouths  reminding sportsmen the joys thc\  haye had  and those  they anticipate in the future.  A MODERN MIRACLE  Mr. Whyte Talks Plainly.

Our big neighbor |provinccs> and ^^ a strQHg  --whose problems are much like | ^ {m mi^A fftrming> He says,  new   anti-trust law  ours���has a  which makes the Sherman act |  look mild and harmless. Under!  the Canadian law six citizens j  may go before any court aud declare that any corporation that  is oppressing or overcharging the  consumer. If they seem to have  good ground for complaint, the  court orders the department of  labor to investigate. A commission is named, the complainants  selecting one member, the corporation a second member ar.d  the government a third. This  commission has the power lo  summon witnesses and demand  all necessary evidence, and to  look up any persons who disobey  or commit perjury. Now comes  the Canadian remedy for monopoly. If the commission linds  the defendant corporation guilty  of raising prices unlawfully, it  can suspend any tariff duties  which protect the corporation's  product. Thus the tariff, which  in the United Stater is too often  used as a weapon against the  consumer, in Canada is turned  into a weapon against the offend-  corporations.

The Prosperity of 1910  It is comfortable to note that  there is practically a unanimous  expression ot opinion regarding  the satisfactory state of trade  throughout the Dominion and  the statistics perform their duty J  in demonstrating that the year  was one of the greatest in the  history of the country.  Reviews and reports in the  eastern papers pay close attention to the course of business  events in the western provinces,  recognizing that  the  vast terri-  in part:  "If ever there was an agricultural country in the world, Manitoba is the couutry. Our sole resources is agriculture Yet this  year there were imported into  Winnipeg over 12 million eggs.  For our Canadian Paciflc dining  cars we are now bringing in  chickens from Chicago. We are  also importing cream from the  United States.  "The trouble is that our farmers are wheat mad. They have  made niouey with wheat, and  they have not the labor which  mixed farming involves. They  can go away in tbe winter and  leave the hired man to take care  of the horses. Tbe loss which  follows exclusive wheat raising  on the farm is universally recognized. The agriculturist is engaged in selling, not his products, but the farm itself. He  is uot so much tillingh is land as  exploiting it. He is using the  land, not as a farm should be  used, but as a miner uses a mine.  He is taking all out and putting  nothing back. If the past hot  summer should teach the farmer  of our prairies to employ other  methods and to practice mixed  farming, the loss of a portion of  our crop would not be greatly regretted."  This is the experience of a man of  high reputation, widely known in  Montreal, and whose case can readily  be investigated. Mr. T. M. Marsh,  the gentleman referred to, lives at 101  Delorimier Avenue, Montreal, and  has lived there .for years. For 25  years he had exzema on his hands  and wrists. The disease first started  in red blotches, which itched, and  when scratched became painful. Bad  sores followed, which discharged, and  the discharge spread the disease until  his hands were one raw, painful mass  of sores. Just think of this state of  affairs continuing for twenty-five  years!  In that time four eminent medical  men tried to cure him, and each gave  up the case as hopeless in the end.  Naturally, Mr- Marsh tried remedies  of all kinds, but he, also, at last gave  it up. For two years he had to wear  gloves day and night so terrible was  the pain and itching when the air got  to the sores.  Then came Zam-Buk! He tried it  just he has had tried hundreds of remedies before. But he soon found out  that Zam-Buk was different. Within  a few weeks there were distinct signs  of benefit, and a little perservance  with this great herbal balm resulted in  what he had given up all hope of���  a complete cure! And the cure was  no temporary cure. It was permanent.  He was cured nearjy three years ago.  Interviewed the other day, Mr. Marsh  said: "The cure which Zam-Buk  worked has been absolutely permanent. From the day that I was cured  to the present moment I have had no  trace of eczema, and 1 feel sure it  will never' return. Having suffered  for twenty-five years, I have naturally  concluded that my case was'incurable,  and I regard my cure as a modern  miracle."

Beech Tar directly relieves a  cough or cold, and at once begins  to heal the delicate passages; Cod  Liver Oil strengthens, and builds up  the system. These two ingredients  are scientifically combined in the  pleasant tasting Mathieu's Syrup.  Mathieu's Syrup does not merely  suppress the symptons of -disease,  it removes their cause. It not only  relieves���it cures.  There is nothing better for  children. They like it, and should  take it on the first appearance of a  cold. Keep a bottle always at hand.

A turn of  the lever instantly changes the draft so the fire is quickened  or checked, at will. Turned on, McClary's Magnet Wood*  Furnace produces the strongest heat in a few minutes; and  the nickelled steel tubes radiate this heat for hours after  the draft is shut off. Because of this stored'heat McClary s  Magnet Wood Furnace is economical and a continuous roaring fire is unnecessary. The heat that goes up the smoke pipe  of ordinary wood furnaces, goes into the register pipes of the  Magnet. Like the position of the damper, ;the Magnet Wood  Furnace is right all through.

The Smoker given under the  auspices of tbe Hockey club at  the Auditorium last Saturday  night was fairly well attended,  but the crowd hardly cr.uie up lo  the expectations of the promoters.  The two preliminaries pulled off  were three round bouts between  local talent in which honors were  rather even! After these exhibitions of the manly art came the  main event of the evening.  At the sound of the gong McCarthy and Smith appeared stripped ready for action, and it was  plain to the onlookers that McCarthy had decidedly the best of  Smith in heighth, reach and general physical prowess.  The first round was fast from  the start, both men showing good  ring generalship and fairly scientific ability. This round ended  with points in McCarthy's favor,  Smith receiving a punch on the  nose that started the claret to  flow.  In the second round both men  came tp the center with a determined look, and while the round  was in most respects like the  first, there, was considerable sidestepping and sparing for an opening, and the round ended in honors about even.  The third round^was of short  duration, McCarthy going at his  opponent like a bengal tiger, and  in a short but furious exchange of  blows landed on Smith's jaw, and  the mill ended in a knock-out as  complete as is possible to describe  it. Smith lit on the back of his  head on the hard floor and lay  there in a quiver until his sec-  onns raised him to his feet. He  was unable to stand and was carried to one of the dressing rooms  below the stage where he was revived after several minutes' hard  work on the part of his attendants.  The fight was" scheduled to go  fifteen rounds, and its short duration and Smith's inability to  last longer than three, was great  disappointment to the sportH who  paid their money hoping to witness a contest above the ordinary  lakes so common nowadays.  The club hopes to be able to  pull off another bout in the near  future, and any evenly matched  artists of the roped arena will be  able to draw down a goodly piece  of money if they can show the  sure thing to the prize ring fans  of Greenwood.  perarmuin. creSiioj irfttilf  oa savings kposifevH-  Jiupwav^sulijecilG^ar  drawat br ckeau;  c<���~    ��� >.

Smith, entered  the service of the Hudson Bay Co. He had been educated for the Civil Service in India; but tho sturdy life of hardship, the rigorous, close, 'hand-to-  h?.r.d battle with fate, somehow appealed to him. more than the easier and  more enervating life of the Orient.  For thirteen years he labored ou the hard Labrador coast, where the  climate was .inhuman, the monotony insurmountable, the loneliness appalling, and promotion seemed slower than the movement of a glacier. But  young Smith made his record, and in this rough training-school learned self-  reliance, courage, self-conquest, prudence and shrewdness among the solitudes, and a sureness of judgment. He learned to oonquer obstacles and to  laugh in triumph at them. In 1869 he had gradually risen to the po:t of  resident-governor���the supreme possibility under the Hudson Bay Co.  When the Federation decided to take over the title of the company, tlioy  net an obstacle in the opposition of the Metis, the hairbreeds of the plains*,  who rose in rebellion under the leadership of the fanatic Louis Tie:!. In thi3  extremity Donald Smith was recognized, and his courage, taut und v.isil)in  aided in cutting the Gordian knot of disagreement. He at once became tho  most powerful man of the Northwest, and a year later was elected to tho  House of Commons.

A blow probably  j meant for the puck been diverted  j to the body or hand of an opponent, causing a momentary cessation of play to the party.  Comments were frequently  heard that the referee rulings  were tinctured with a bias against  Greenwood and in many rulings  the decision was decidedly coarse  and unfair Our boys of Greenwood and also thc boys of Grand  Forks play this game on its merits  and1 do not ask or will accept any  concessions but ready to plav it  out emphatically upon the square  and have the best side get away  with the honors.

Phoenix Hotel Fire.  The Queens hotel at Phoenix,  formerly the Summit hotel' located ou the main business corner  of the town, was completely gutted by fire Sunday morning.

The contents of Pulliers' barber  shop, Nicholson's cigar store, the  Royal billiard parlors mid Love's  drug store were moved out, while  the stocks of several other stores  were made ready for removal.
