BURNS & CO.  3��  I  Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  Fresh Meats  Poultry and Game  Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  i  It is believed that the bill before  congress pertaining to " extra-territorial deposits of phosphate, etc.,"  but which in reality would apply  American sovereignity to the islands  of Spitsbergen, will not pass at this  session. The lands involved, and on  which are located extansive deposits  of bituminous coal, in which John  M. Longyear, of Marquette, Mich.,  and associates are interested, have  been in progress of examination and  exploitation for the past six years and  shipments have already been made.  The deposits are understood to contain a large tonnage' and the coal is  said to be of very high grade, approximating in steam quality the Poca  hontas coal of the United States.  The bill, introduced by Senator  Lodge, of Massachusetts, and which  passed the senate early in January,  proposes to attach to the jurisdiction  of the United States these islands and  to confirm the claim of the Longyear  interests to the areas held by. them.  The measure is now pending in the  house. According to Washington  advices it is believed the legislation  has little prospect of being enacted,  at least at the present session.  In his annual message to congress  President Taft referred to the operations of the American mining interests in Spitzbergen and called attention to the., fdet that the United States  would be represented at an interna-  tion-1 conference to be held at Chris-  tinia, Norway, to consider the status  of the islands. It was stated that: the  government would participate only  on: the understanding that American vested rights would be recognized. As this conference is to be  held within the near future, it is stated  to be the belief of the house committee on foreign affairs that the Lodge  bill should not be put through  Norwegian capital.  At present Spitzbergen is "no  man's land." JJo nation has ever  claimed   title   to   it.    Described   at  rocky, barren and snow-clad islands,  lost in the solitudes of the Arctic  ocean," the region contains no permanent population. Years ago it was  the rendezvous of whalers. No flag  was there and no law prevailed, and  bloody battles between sailors took  place Compared with Porto Rico,  Spitzbergen is about three times as  large. The islands have a total area  of 15,200 square miles, or approximately twice that of New Jersey and  about 3,000 square miles greater than  that of Maryland. The region lies  nearly 500 miles north of the northern extremity of Norway, and its  open and working season covers but  three months of the year.  Spitzbergen is easy of access in the  summer time; the lun shines brightly,  and the temperature has been known  to rise above 80 degrees. There is  but the shallowest of soil, still the  Longyear miners have been able to  raise in boxes a few vegetables, such  as lettuce and other quick-growing  plants. This year it is planned to  transport shiploads of soil to the  islands. The deepest shaft at the  mines is down 800 feet, but even at  that depth frost is encountered. Despite the cold, men are kept in the region all winter and are able to work  beneath the surface. The constant  presence of frott eliminates mine  damp. An unprotected light can be  used, and there is no such thing as an  explosion.  The corporation controlled by Mr.  Longyear and his associates is known  as thc Arctic Coal Co. Last summer  the working force aggregated 130  men. This winter 50 have been retained to continue the underground  work. In the summer two steamships controlled by the company ply  between Norway and the coal mines,  carrying in supplies and taking out  coal, which finds a ready market in  Europe.���Mining World.

King Edward is a  diplomat, and his speech was guarded,  as usual, on subjects that are: -for the  people themselves to decide!

Copper company have  just passed through the most profitable year in their history. The annual meeting of the company took  place in West Virginia recently and  the financial statement is now published.  . The net profits for the past year  were almost a quarter of a million,  in spite of the fact that the plant was  closed for three months early in 1909.  Also 1.32,556 shares of thc New  Dominion Copper company were acquired, and 1,312,246 pounds of  copper stored. Copper was sold during the year for 13.08 cents per  pound, against 13.5 the previous year.  The smelter plant will be enlarged  this year and the payment of dividends resumed.

The face ol the tunnel is  in over 4IJU feet, and at the present  rate of progress the first ore body  should be reached by the beginning of  April. Thc compressor is working  smoothly and every mining condition  is favorable to the excellent work being done by the Superintendent, Duncan Mcintosh, and his men. -  DIFFERENT MEN  BISHOP WINS  ;y ���  N CUP  shipyard,  The British firm do not confine  their activities to shipbuilding,  and it is expected that they will  operate the Montreal plant during the winter months, when navigation is at a standstill, for the  output of railway supplies of  various kinds.  PANAMA CANAL  The grand total of canal excavation at Panama for the month  of December was 2.811,681 cubic  yards. This is 362,.366 cubic  yards more than the total for November, but 1,068,656 cubic yards  less than the highest record, made  in March, 1909. Of the grand  total, 1,455,611 cubic yards was  dry excavation, removed principally by steam shovels. The  dredges removed 1,326,070 cubic  yards, in addition to the amount  pumped into Gatun dam by tbe  suction dredges engaged on that  work.  DEEP MINING  Theodore Roosevelt Jr., son of  former President Roosevelt, has  just announced his engagement to  Miss Eleanor Butler Alexander of  New York. The news of the  event was cabled to Colonel  Roosevelt in Africa, aud, although the announcement was a  surprise, it is not feared that  there will be any paternal displeasure. Mrs. Roosevelt has  already approved ot the engagement.  Lieutenant Shackleton did not  succeed in getting to the South  Pole, he has got nearer to it than  any predecessor. He has been received with great honor both in  Great Britain .and in this country.  On the contrary, Commander  Peary did get to the North Pole  and he has been received coldly  in both countries���In America  because ot his treatment of Cook  and in England because he refused to allow an Englishman  who accompanied him to within  a degree ol the pole to go any  further. Shackelton, on the  other hand, shared whatever honors he had freely with his companions. By apparently trying  to hog the whole cake, Peary has  practically got nothing.  GEORGE WASHINGTON  Tuesday, February 22, was  George Washington's birthday.  Everywhere in the United States  this day is celebrated, for Colonel  Washington was their first president^ and rightly named the  father of his country. He was a  typical specimen of the old English stock that settled  the then  x��l man���LUiuurca���ma���t-grrot 'uu-  empire out of the wilderness.  NO, 7  Last Tuesday night the finals for  the Warren cup were played off at  Greenwood Curling rink. The rival  teams were neck and neck the entire  evening until the last end, when  Bishop's rink won in a sensational  manner by 15 to 8. The rinks were  as follows: K. W. Bishop, C. Summers, George Clerf and J. McCreath,  Sr. !���:. R. Redpath, Dr. McLean,  E. Russell and  \I.    D. Macpherson.  THE GERMAN ARMY  The peace strength of the German army has risen during tlie  past year to f>20,000 men of all  ranks and 111,820 horses.  This does not include 45f��,.l,>S  reservists. Germany leads the  world in aeronautics, and the last  year has only confirmed her su-  premacv of the air. Her arial  fleet consists of twelve dirigible--,  systems Zeppelin, Parsevai and  Gross, while there are fifteen  other dirigibles in private hands  susceptible of being requisitioned  to act in conjunction with her immense army.  LATE HON. CORNWALL  The Hon. C. F. Cornwall, who  died last week in St. Joseph's  hospital, Victoria, was born at  Ashcroft, Eng., 1836. He came  to British Columbia in 1862, practicing law in tbe then active mining districts. He was a member  of B. C.'s first parliament aud  was lieutenant-governor of British Columbia until 1886.

BOUNDARY POLICE  The year 1908 was one reign of  terror for the Boundary. The  towns of Greenwood, Grand  Forks, Phoenix and Mid ay, with  the smaller settlements of Carson,  Cascade, Rock Creek, Myncaster,  Bridesville, Sidley and Osoyoos,  all close to the International  Boundary line, were subject to  holdups, robbery under arms, cattle stealing, petty thievery, and  murder. After a series of daring  exploits, the holdirg up of Hie  Majesty's subjectp, theft, cattle  and horse stealing extraordinary,  the series of border crimes culminated in the foul and dastardly  murder of C. L. Thomet, a highly  respected citizen and law-abiding  good fellow, popular and extremely well thought of. That  year crime was rife in this part  of the country, merchants went  armed m the less populated communities, no one was safe, money  ���the object of the marauders���  if not forthcoming, was followed  by murder.    Then the provincial  government in its astute wisdom  sent us a man to clear the district of crime, gave him a free  hand, made him the paramount  head of the entire boundary line  police and spent a few shekels,  of the many we pay the government for protection, with a splendid result. The year 1909 saw  no fresh crimes, but several convictions. The new chief has a  mailed fist and used the above  mentioned free hand with a deadly  effect on crime and criminals.  We all felt safe. Holdups ceased,  robbery came to a short stop by  a sentence of many years to the  Newman brothers, cattle stealing  became a byword, and we, who  live on the outskirts of civilization, on a foreign frontier, at the  gateways of B. C, were assured  ot a pertect system otpofice protection, our money, our lives secure, our cattle immune from the  brand of the spoiler; and we owe  this most satisfactory state of  things not entirely to the all-  wise government, who sent us a  most able man to cope with crime  in our midst, but to the fact that  that man was given a free hand,  able lieutenants and several of  them, and tbat he himself is held  in wholesome awe and respect by  the crook, who is run out of Spokane and by the undesirable who  is wanted in the State of Washington to our south.  But the year of grace, 1910,  to-wit, i9 another story. As yet  but two of its twelve pages have  been writ up, and it remains to be  seen whether the same free hand  and support will be given to our  chief of provincial police as has  been done in the past.  His small police force is scattered along tbe boundary, very  many miles apart, too far apart to  act together, and the chief officer,  the official head, whose presence  is often necessary at headquarters,  but is more often necessary where  the rogues foregather, should  not be tied down here without  a spare man to leave in charge.  And yet we live at the gateway  of B. C. Not only does the overflow of rough toughs from Wasta-  ington affect the Boundary, but  all B. C. If we have good men  here to keep them out, to suppress crime on the frontier, there  will be less need of provincials  to guard our citizens up north.  It is up to our B. C. authorities  to see that C. J. Bunbury, the  chief of provincial police in the  Boundary district, is upheld and  backed by the department, and  that he has as many lieutenants  as his needs require.

There is an awful lot of kicking in the papers these days  about the Income Tax in B C,  and the hardship it works on the  average man. First find your  income, then find your trouble.

Owing to the death of Sir  George Drummond, President of  the bank of Montreal, the vacant  position will, in all probability,  fall to Sir Edward Clouston,  Bart., and it is but natural to  presume that the general managership of this great institution  will be taken over by Mr, Meredith, who is next in the line of  promotion. Mr. Meredith, who  comes from an old Ontario family  and who was born in London,  Ont., and is a brother ot Chief  Justice Meredith, joined the staff  of the Bank of Montreal in 1867,  entered the service at Hamilton,  Ont.

THE  BOUNDARY CREEK TIMES  IIES AND MINING!  *  *  * ,.    �� ��  ia ��  In a vicious fight at the 1,000-lt  level of the Ready Bullion mine, near  Treadwell, Joe Bakich, a Slavonian,  struck' John Harris^ his helper, on the  head with a drill. Harris' skull was  crushed, and he is in a precarious  condition. A deputy marshal from  Juneau brought Bakich to jail. He  declares the blow was struck in self-  defence. The helper is too ill' to  make a statement.  A shut-down of all mining opera"  tions in the Butte district is threatened  by reason of the action of a majority  of the hoisting; engineers in leaving  their posts recently when concessions  from the mineowners in the matter of  jurisdictional disputes were not forthcoming. The men involved are members of International Union 138.  Operations are continued in <but four  of the Amalgamated company's properties, the Silver Bow, the Berkey,  the Mountain and the Buffalo.  A free milling gold property at  Pearl Harbor, Alaska, and said to  rival in possibilities the production of  the Alaska-Treadwell mine, will be  developed shortly by a Chicago group  of capitalists as a result of a favorable  report made two months ago by Col.  Allan, of Chicago. The deal was  negotiated by one of the principal  owners, J. R. Stewart, of Victoria,  and formerly a well known coal mining operator of Edmonton. The  ledge is said to be high grade and to  be traceable on the surface for over  two miles. It will be developed by  means of two long tunnels and a  small stamp mill will also be i nstalled  this spring for the purpose, of making;  experimental mill tests. The new  company in which the property has  been vested is the Alaska Consolidated and has a capitalization of  $3,000,000.       Canada possesses three-fifths of the  stores of nickel in the world. There  are only two countries in. the world  that  have any   appreciable store of  nickel���the Dominion and the French  colony of New Caledonia. Both deposits are controlled by substantially  the same organization���the International Nickel company, of New York.  The Canadian deposits are incalculable, but millions of tons are lying in  the earth because It did not suit the  purpose of the trust to produce more  than a limited amount each year. It  is now urged that the nickel mines of  this country should be taken over by  the government. This, it is claimed,  would give Great Britain an enormous  advantage over all other countries in  the construction of war ships and  would insure for all time the material,  which is the chief feature in the construction of modern battleships, would  be preserved for Canada and the empire. Nickel is found in an ore that  contains also a considerable proportion of copper. It was copper that  was beine searched for when the prospectors chanced upon the other and  more valuable metal. That was less  than 20 years ago, but in those days  there was little demand for nickel, and  vast quantities of valuable material  were thrown aside as unsalable, but  the case was entirely altered when the  value of nickel as a steel alloy was  discovered.  A few minutes delay in treating  tome casea of croup, even the length  of time it takes to get a doctor of tens  proves dangerous. The safest way  is to keep Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the house, and at the first in  dication of croup give the child a dose.  Pleasant to take and always cures.

AT THE CHURCHES  From the East came wisdom, it is  said; and the eastermost province of  the Dominion, Nova Scotia, is showing its wisdom by "taking stock" of  its forest resources with a view to inaugurating a businesslike system of  managing them. This inventory was  begun during the past summer (1909),  and was under the charge of Dr.  B. E. Fernow, dean of the faculty of  forestry of the University of Toronto,  who was assisted by the chief fire  warden of the province and several  trained foresters.  The southwestern part of the province, from Hants county westward,  has been covered and it is expected  that the survey will be completed during the coming summer.  To total area surveyed during the  past summer was about 8,500 square  miles. The cost was very low, averaging less than 20 cents per square  mile.  Only a rough survey, or "recon-  naisance," was attempted. Each  member of the party was assigned a  certain district and allowed considerable latitude in choosing a way to  cover this to the best advantage.  Time and expense were saved by  utilizing existing records and information secured from well-informed persons, where these were found reliable, the field work consisting largely  in checking the information thus obtained, studying, forest types, etc  This information was then plotted  in the field directly on large scale  maps (2 inches to the mile.) Among  the points recorded were the extent of  the burned areas, the degree of cutting on cut-over areas, the composition of the forest, the condition of  the young growth or "reproduction"  and the character of the farming  lands, meadows, etc., within the  farming country.  Dr. Fernow's report as to the possible future of the forest is interesting and encouraging. He remarks:  ' 'Although the data on reproduction  and rate of growth are not yet collated, it is safe to say that, if the fires  are kept out (and apparently with the  present organization still further perfected this can be done reasonably  well), there is no difficulty in restocking by natural means most of the cut-  over areas, if not too severely culled.  * * * In the pure hemlock-  spruce stands all that is necessary is  to remove the old hemlock thoroughly  and cleanly to have the young growth  of spruce, already on the ground,  take its place.''  He thinks, however, that incorrect  ideas are often held as to the growth  of' spruce. The white spruce may,  he says, when growing in comparatively open situations, make a sawlog  in ; sixty years. The forest spruce,  which is mostly red spruce, is of  slower growth, and will probably not  average a sawlog in less than a hundred years.  To a   large   extent   the   differen  species   are   found to  be   localized  Thus the  white pine is found  most  plentifully  in  Shelburne  and part of  Queen's, the hemlock in Annapolis,  and the spruce in Digby.  Heretofore estimates of Canada's  forest areas, the stands of timber  thereon and of the country's forest  resources in general have been very  largely guesswork. The action of  Nova Scotia takes prominence as  the first attempt on any large scale to  substitute accurate information for  this uncertainty. While no doubt  errors have crept in, the estimates are  at least based upon exact knowledge;  and that is far more than could be  said of former estimates. It is to be  hoped that other provinces of the Dominion will see fit, ere' long, to follow  Nova Scotia's example in this line of  work.

If you have eczema, ringworm or  any. scalp sore, do not permit your  hair to be cut off without first trying  -Mr��'/ David Monteith, of  itreet, Norwood, Winni-  ', nyi; , "My daughter contracted  eczema of tbe scalp, and this broke out  regularly for three years in succession.  It would probably have been recurring  yet each season had it not been for  Zam-Buk. The eczema first started  with an outbreak of little red, watery  pimples, which turned into large sores.  We consulted a medical man, and tried  lotions, powders, salves and all kinds  of things but in vain.  "Each time the disease appeared her  hair had to be cut off. When this had  been done three times a friend suggested that, as other things had failed  I should try Zam-Buk, Instead of again  consulting a doctor and going through  the old and ineffective programme. I  acted on this advice, and obtained  some Zam-Buk. Almost as soon as  this was applied the child experienced  relief. The itching and irritation  seemed to be soothed, and in several  places, after some days' treatment,  there appeared marked signs of improvement so we thought we would  not this time cut off the hair.  "We kept on applying Zam-Buk until in a few weeks it was very evident  a complete cure was being effected,  In the end all the sores were healed,  the hair over the effected parts had  grown again, and at the present time  her scalp is healthy and quite free  from every trace of sore or eczema."  The same healing virtue is responsible  for cure of ulcers, abscesses, running  sores, cuts, cracks, scalds, burns, piles,  abrasions, etc, For children's rashes  there is nothing to equal Zam-Buk, as  it is so pure .

The Ice Carnival, advertised to  take place at the rink on Tuesday  last, was not the success it should  have been. No doubt the intense  cold of Monday and Tuesday  nights kept most of the keen  skaters away.

JSferlOS ANGELES  -.A    ���:   the order of Secretary  tenor Ballinger,  tothe  "that   all   applications for  -on   the   Yuma irrigation  t would be considered  "si-  fjoously " on the morning of  1,  the   150   persons  who  have been in   line   for   five days  waiting   for  the   distribution  of  the 40-acre   farms,   have decided  to hol'd their positions in line and  and not chance a   "grand rush"  with later arrivals.  The Los Angeles land office, in  a circular that is in the bands of  the land seekers, said in part:  "The.agents of the building  in which the land office is situated will not permit anyone to remain in the building at night.  As a consequence any line which  may be formed prior to the date  of opening will be formed on the  street and will- be under the supervision of the police department.  "The head of the line will be  allowed to enter the building at  an early hour on the morning of  March 1 and the line formation  will be maintained in the hall of  the building until the last farm  has beeu disposed of, the rule of  ���first come first served' being  strictly enforced.''  As a, result of the announcement, the landseekers took up  their stations in the line early in  the week and despite the rains,  have held them day aud night,  POSSIBILITIES  Fifty-four years aeo seven  French scientists investigated  photography, and asserted that  it could .be never used for anything but still life, because an  exposure lasting at least thirty  minutes was necessary.  And yet the men who own  kodaks today shrug their shoulders when the Los Angeles aviation meet is mentioned and declare that aeroplanes will never  be of any commercial importance.  REVOLT IN INDIA  A most serious revolt of the  natives at Jagdalupur, India, is  causing the British authorities  much anxiety. Only 200 police  were available ior duty and it is  feared that the troops ordered  there will not arrive in time to  prevent bloodshed. This is the  most serious outbreak since the  mutiny.  .-::W   IN THE HOUSE  77f    ���  " ^Ehe Penticton Railway bill, a  J8i)|]inteasufe, was introduced to-  &����' ''''���Jj|.is for a line south from  qm,'. connecting' with the  Hill agents are Very  I;^eil Mckay arid other  embers are making a  to have the charter  giSifpltety on condition that the  dismantled six miles.of the Kaslo-  SlocSn road be put.iu condition  and operated.
