Hon.  Wm. Tembleman and Dr. Eugene  Paanel. director of mines. It is  a volume of 572 pages and is tbe  reault of labors during the paRt  year of a special knowledge of  particular districts on-which thev  have reported. The report-winch  will be of great practical value to  everyone interested in the mining  and metallurgical industries of  the Dominion, covers an immense  amount of inforniation. respecting  the mineral resources of the var-  sous provinces; details as to character and output of individual  properties ; manufacturing processes, prospects for nature development, etc. There are also  many illustrations of mining and  metal working plants and maps  showing location of minerals in  each province.  The statistical part of the report was synopsized in a bulletin  issued ' by the department last  year, The figures given show in  the aggregate a mineral production for all Canada valued at $86,-  183,477 in 1907, as compared with  only a little over $20,000,000 12  years ago. In the portion of the  report devoted to the Yukon it is  stated that the total production of  gold from 1896 ta.l9J07 was $121,-  951,090.  The report deals at considerable length with the coal-bearing  areas of Alberta and Saskatchewan and points out the - immense  possibilities for coal mining industry in these provinces. "The  construction-already under way,"  says the report In reference to  Alberta "and projected for the  near future, by the three great  railway companies, must result  m a great increase in the production of steam coal, so that a country originally deemed purely agri  cultural will, ere long, becorne  one of the leading coal mining  provinces of the Dominion."  The copper production of Canada, U.S. and Mexico is now rnn-  ning in excess of 1,300,000,OOOlbs  a year.  Under the new Chinese law  foreign capital is not perjihitted  to be employed directly in mining  in thut country.  Robert Guggenheim, soclof the  president of the Americati Min-  iug -and Smelting Co. ha'sj taken  up his residence at Tacoma.  r-.-s  A new process of smelting ore5  is being exhibited at Beattie  which has a capacity of 25 tons  per day and is especially designed  for localities which would : otherwise be inaccessible for smelting  purposes. '    *  The mining industry/ in the  Shasta County copper belt, California, is in a prospero8s5condit-  lon.  Near Vallenar, Chile^a gold  mine.is reported to havebeen discovered recently from which ore  has been taken that contained  200 oz of pure gold per-: ton of  2,000 lb.  The mineral production in the  United States now exceeds $2,000,-  000,000 per annum, and it contributes more than "66 per ^entta  the total freight traffic of the  country.  When a mineral containing  zinc is heated on charcoal before  the blowpipe a coat is formed on  the charcoal' that is yellow white  hot and white when cold.  Of the new smelting combine  authorized ��50,000,000 capital  stock, it is understood that $20,-  000,000 will be issued in the near  future, aud has been underwritten.  MINING INSTITUTE.  The recent cold weather has shown the extent of  our dependence upon electricity from a business  point of view, and we wish to recall to you the  well known fact that electricy is a valuable aid.in the  remedy of a number of physical ills-  We are carrying in stock a reliable line of  Electric  Inductors  and  Electric Belts  At prices within your reach, and of a quality which  ���nsures their being goods of merit  THOMAS DRUG & MUSIC CO.

Meeting of the .Western Branch Postponed-  The unprecedented weather of  the past ten days has so seriously interfered with mining operations that the meeting of the  Western Branch of the Canadian  Mining Institute at Greenwood  has been postponed to Jan. 25th,  and the following notice has  been sent out by the secretary,  Mr. Jacobs.  Owing to serious difficulties with  plant and machinery, the result of freezing of water at mines and smelters,  following enforced temporary supsen-  sion of operations, caused by stoppage  of electric power during extreme cold  weather so few Boundary members  would be free to attend meeting if  held Thursday, 14th inst-, as previously intended, that local members  have strongly urged postponement  until Monday, 25th inst., which  course, appearing necessary under  exceptional circumstances, has been  decided upon. You are accordingly  hereby notified of this unavoidable  change of date.  To Guarantee Bonds for Prairie  Railways,  An unofficial report says that under an arrangement between  Premier Rutherford, of Alberta,  and the officials of the C.N.R.,  that company will build certain  lines desired by the Province* of  Alberta under a guarantee of  bonds to the extent of $15,000 per  mile, the Government to retain  the first mortgage on the lines so  constructed. Premier Scott also  made Saskatchewan a partner to  this agreement. The company  solicited a cash subsidy, but neither Mr. Rutherford ner Mr. Scott  would entertain such a proposal.  About five hundred miles are to  be in southern Alberta, and the  company will be asked to inyade  theooal fields of the south, giving competition in rate..  CITY COUNCIL  The council met on Monday  evening and adopted minuted of  previous meeting.  The report of the medical officer  of health was received and filed.  During the past year the health of  our city has been extremely good,  and the mortality very low. the  total number of deaths in Greenwood during 1908 being 15, and 9  of these deaths were cases that  came from points outside of the  city.  The auditor's report for 1908  was received and filed, and ordered  to be printed.  The amonnt collected for taxes  during the year was $10,005.95.  The fire protection bylaw was reconsidered and adopted.  The following accounts were ordered to be paid:  Electric Lights  $188 95  A. A. Frechette        1 50  D O. McKay.      37 20  The Ledge     40 tO  Eussell-Law-Caulfield Co;  60  Kinney & McDonald .'       7 90  Vancouver Rubber Co    163 47  Council adjourned.  The election of tnaynr and aldermen for the City of Greenwood  passed off very quietly and amicably although a rather keen interest was developed towards the  close of the contest.  As usual with elections there  were some surprise?, not the least  being the defeat of Aid. Fleming  who last year headed the poll in  the south ward.  Half of the old council together  with Mayor Bunting have beeu  returned and as the new members  are all reliable biisjuess men and  the choice of the people, it mav  be said that on the whole the re-  suit is satisfactory.  Mr. Desrosiers made a good run  only losing by the narrow plurality of 19 votes.  Aid. Wilson leads the poll in  the north ward, and Aid. Dixon  in the south, who with the two  new members. Aid. Buckless and  Aid. Johnson, ran exceptionally  strong. -:  . In connection with the municipal elections this year the. evi-  dentdesire evinced by all concerned to work together for the good  of tbecommunity is a matter for  congratulation; and the spirit of  public interest shown in matters  pertaining to the beat interests of  the city augurs well for the future prosperity of the municipality.  The new council has some problems of very'great importance  to solve, the principal one being  the matter of the greatly  reduced, revenues consequent to  the increased amonnt of unpaid  taxes, and it is evident that special endeavors will be made this  year to bring the camp back to  the former stage of prosperity enjoyed before the tightening of  the money market in the financial  depression wkicb is happily passing away.  Though the situation in regard  to civic finances is serious, we  are in a much mere hopeful condition than some neighboring  municipalities, and a, feeling of  confidence prevails that Greenwood is entering upon an era of  renewed activity.  The returns of yesterday's voting are as follows:  Mayor.  Bunting, Herbert 108  ' Desrosiers, John B..:... 89  Alermen���North ward  Wilsen, C. J  70  Buckless. P. C,   68  Meyer, A. F.

B  50  The plant of the Kootenay  Power Co. has been incapacitated by the excessive cold, with the  result that the Boundary mining  companies depending on Bonuing-  ton Falls for power have been  torced to temporarily suspend op  orations. The big plants at Rossland, Grand Forks. Phoenix and  Greenwood are all out of commission.  Tlie BC. Copper company of  Greenwood, are taking advantage of the situation to make  some repairs to their works  which will obviate the necessity  of a shut-down at a later date;  and it is expected tbat everything  will be running as usual before  the end of the coming week.   '  BOARD OF TRADE  Kettle Valley Railway.  At the forthcoming session of  the Provincial legislature the  Kettle River Valley Railway Co.  will seek incorporation to operate a line of railway of standard  guage commencing at a point at  or near Midway, B,C. thence to  Penticton bv the most feasible  route a distance of 120 miles more  or less; and commencing at a  point at or near Penticton on  Okanagan Lake thence to a point  at or near Nicola by the most feasible route a distance ef about  150 miles.   ;  Wiih the construction of the  Kettle ?yalley line the Boundary  will be brought into direct communication -with the coast and  the ricbi -and extensiv* mineral  fields of the West Fork will be  given the transportation required  to place them1 in the front rank  of the country's producing mines.

The address of the president is  optimistic and encouraging and  in dealing with the increasing  revenue of the con\raunity shows  that the money paid ia wages  during the past six months by tbe  B.C. Copper company is over  $14,000 greater than that of any  other six-month's period in the  company's history.  Reference is made to the rail-,  road situation and the Board advised tbat it is their particular  province to see that the rights of  the community in that respect  are obtained.  Attention is called to the stability of local labor conditions  which is referred to as a matter  of material importance with the  mining industry, and the Board  is urged "to continue to encourage tbe advent of development  money by giving any accurate information at its command, and to  promote by every means io its  power the interests of the district  in mining and agriculture*."  The Secretary's report deals  with the work done by the Board  during the vear.  The alteration of the wagon  road at Boundary Falls was  brought before the Board of Railway Commissioners and the matter satisfactorily settled,  <-- Correspondence Vith. intending  investors and' settlers has been  more or less -weighty, as they refer not only to the large country  to the north and west of Greenwood, but also to the neighboring towns of Phoenix and Grand  Forks, who have no representative body to circulate reliable information.  The financial statement is a  subject tor congratulation, showing a balance for the year of $98.-  20. besides the assets, which include a library of useful information to which access mav be  had at any time at the secretary'4  office.

It is said that Lord Milner will  become the Conservative leader  iu the British parliament.  The Empire, of Prince Rupert,  calls attention to the fact that  the north country is sadly neglected in the provincial appropriations tor surveys, roads, trails,  bridges, etc., and demands that a  fair part of the revenue from that  part ot the province be spent by  the government" in opening up  the country.  The Boundary country is another locality which pays large revenues to the provincial treasury  with but small returns; and money spent on roads and trails in a  richly mineralized territory  would serve to increase the great  revenues now* paid.  Perhaps with the appointment  of an additional minister, and the  return of others to their duties,  some one may be found who has  the time to look into the matter.  100 Men in the G.T.P. survey  gangs have had their wages reduced aad quit work.

Zam-Buk is the  virtual descendaut ot those woderful  and mysterious herbal balms by the use  of which the manly athletes of Ancient  Greece and the stalwart gladiators of  Rome ensured the healthiness aad  ready healing of their skin.  Many are the attempts that were  made to produce a perfect balm for the  skin, but only in Zam-Buk has the  ideal been realized. Since its discovery Zam-Buk nan been welcomed in  mansion and cottage, and the people of  two hemispheres realised that they  have been placed in possession of an  absolutely unique cure for skin complaints. *  The reasons for this triumph at  science are simple and few. Taking a  lesson from tho Ancients, the proprietors of Zam-Buk first of all wisely decided that the ideal balm must be .purely herbal and contain.not the slightest  trace, of rancid animal fatp or poisonous minerals. Thus Zam Buk is made  solely from rich and pure essences obtained from certain herbs. These  juices and extracts are prepared and  refined by ingenious scientific processes and then so skilfully blended that a  unique, effective, and yet perfectly  natural preparation for dispelling skin  disease is secued.  Zam Buk has an affinity for the  human skin such as no ordinary ointment or linament can possibly possess  Besides soothing pain and allaying  irritation, it possesses unique antiseptic  and germicidal qualities which virtually chase disease germs out of their  hiding-places in the skin tissues; at the  same time it purifies tbe pores and in  vigorates the natural functions of the  skin in a way that no other preparation can.  Zam-Buk solves in a perfect manner  the problem of always having handy at  home or at one's work an ever ready  and reliable first aid for cuts, burns,  scalds, bruises, lacerations, scratches,  etc. Zam Buk is without equal for  eczema, ulcers,piles,bad leg, ringworm  scalp s res, festering seres, sprains,  stiffness, poisoned wounds of all kinds,  face soses, chafing, chapped hands,  cold sores, frost bites, sore feet, diseas  ed ankles, and all such itching, irritat  I ion   and inflammation.  Zam Buk is in daily need in every  household and is sold by all druggists  and stores at 50 cents a box Refuse  harmful and dangerous substitutes  sometimes "pushed" as being "just as  good."
