Thirty-five of these are in  Quebec, and Winnipeg, Victoria,  a_d Nanaimo are also, on the list.  In Alberta all but Victoria riding are in contest ; Manitoba has  eight, while Saskatchewan has  only one. '  Many of these cases, it is said,  will not come to trial, though in  Quebec where party feeling is  running high it is expected that  nearly every case will be heitly  contested.  Going to South America  It is stated that J. E. Griffith  gold commissioner at Golden, will  shortly resign his position to go to  South America to design and build  the snowsheds to be constructed  across the Andes by the English  company which is providing  South America .with.-a transcon-  tinental railway. Mr Griffith was  due1 b��ithe "lea~dm%-e4gineefs responsible for the design and* construction of the snowsheds and  avalanche breaks which has successfully served the C.i��.R. in  maintaining s their highway  across the Selkirk mountains.  The Australian Cabinet  ' The New Labor Ministry of the  Australia* 'Commonwealth is  composed of moderates rather  than extremists and includes all  the available members of the last  government. Mr. Fisher, the  premier,was formerly amiaer,Mr.  Hughes a school teacher, Mr.  Pearce a carpenter, Mr. Bachelor  an engineer, Mr. Tudor a hatter  Mr. Thomas a miner, Mr. Mashon  a journalist, and Mr. Hutchinson  a journalists. ;Mr. Tudor, Mr..Bachelor and Mr. Pearce are'Austra*  li an born. Mr. Deak in, s followers will support the new ministry  Johannesburg Group  Development work is steadily  proceeding on the Johannesburg  group of claims comprising the  Croesus, Johannesburg, Dover  fraction, the Eureka, and the  Royal, which embrace a continuous area of 24C acres of Mineral  bearing ground, all of which is  ready for crown-granting.  The property overlooks the city  and the B.C. Cepper Co's smelter  at Anaconda,, and the workings  show a tremendous body of low-  grade ore which has been shown  up for a distance of 2000 feet and  which'is at least 350 feet in  width.  Ou the Croesus the 115 foot  shaft with 78 feet of cross-cutting  has been abandoned owing to the  quantity of water met iffith at a  t-ine when results were most en-  c.'uragiug the ore carrying good  values  in copper-sulphides   and  gold.  Two 30 ft. shafts and a aeries  ot holes 10 or 12 feet in depth  bave been sunk along the lead for  2J00 feet which demonstrates the  c mtinuity of the deposit across  the Croesus and the Johannesburg. ' ,'  A tunnel is being driven on the  Johannesburg which is now in  60 feet, all in ore, and gives great  promise that another big boundary ore deposit has been discovered,  > The ore is a mispickle strong in  iron, and assays have given values in gold, silver, nickel and  copper, one test on the Johannesburg having given as high  as $80 principally in gold, though  the wealth of the property will  probably come from the great deposit of low-grade copper ore  which has been clearly shown up  at so many points over the area  embraced in the Croesus-Johannesburg group.  The announcement is made that  the last link in the National  Transcontinental railway between Monoton and Winnipeg is  in the hands of the contractors.  It is a stretch of 204 miles through  the clay belt ' of New Ontario,  beginning at a point ten miles  west of Lake Nipigon. It may  be said, therefore, that the whole  line from-salt water on the Atlantic to salt water on the Pacifio is  in hand, and the prospects of  completion by 1911 are good. The  completion of the Temiskaming  and Northern Ontario track, to  the intersection with the track of  the-National Transcoctinentaland  the coming into operation of the  Lake Superior Junction line contribute to the rapid cpnstruction  of the main line.���Nelson News  The Granby tonnage has passed  the million mark for 1908.  During the past week the B.C.  Copper Co's smelter treated 13,618  tons of ore, 10,623 from the Mother Lode, Oro Denoro 1,143, others 543 and custom ore 1,306  tens.  Dominion Copper,  A meeting of the bondholders  of the Dominion Copper Co., of  which Mr. P. F. Roosa is the  provisional liquidator, ��� held a  meeting in New York last week,  and the following is part of the  report as given by the. Boston  Commercial :  "Alter the appointment of a  receiver, our general manager  visited the mines at Phoenix and  the smelter at Boundary Falls,  and inspected the machinery,  plant and stores.  "The assets consist of the  following: mining properties,  Rawhide, Idaho,.Brooklyn, Stem-  winder, Montezuma, Standard,  Mountain and Jackpot mining  claims, owned by Dominion Copper company at date of the trust  mortgage, together with mining  claims formerly owned by the  Montreal and Boston Copper company, the Morrison Mines, Limited, and. the Athelstan Gold and  Copper Mining Co., Ltd., and  transferred to the Dominion  company, including among others  the Sunset, C. O.D., and Crown  Silver mineral claims and the  Florence and Athelstan fractional mineral claims ; machinery,  plant, tools and equipment; smelter at Boundary Falls and machinery and plant connected ; stores  having book valae of approximately $50,000.  "It would appear, that in addition  to bonded indebtedness of $800,-  000 and aeerued interest there  are outstanding claims fer about  $75,000, inclusive of wages for  August and September, aggregating $20,000. The miners have  filed liens against the properties.  "Pending sale the receiver has  been authorized to borrow $20,000  in priority to to tke trusto mortgage securing the bond issue to  defray expenses of the receivership, the principal item being  cost of power and labor in keeping the mines pumped out. The  receiver estimates that his expenses will aggregate $4,600 per  month.  "It is not possible to say what  time will he required to bring the  properties to sale."  It has developed that the Gran-  t\y Consolidated Mining, Smelting  and Power company, which operates in the same district as the  Dominion has ofifered the latter  company $300,000 for its properties, including the smelter, which  has recently been equipped at an  expense of about $300,000.  The British 'Columbia Copper  company, the third producer of  importance in the Boundary district, has also made an offer to  the Dominion companies for its  properties, but this, we undei -  stand, was not sufficiently large  to consider.  The original issue of $1,000,000  bonds was put out against improvements made to the property.  The Rawhide mine is stated to  be the one which the Granby  company is most deBirous of obtaining.  The British Golumbia Copper  company has recently had au examination made bf the Dominion  mines by its engineer.  The  The promoters o  nel which will traverse the high-  grade properties of Greenwood  camp and eventually tap the great  Phoenix mines at a depth of 2,000  feet, announce that the money  for the undertaking has been secured aad that they have the  machinery with which to commence operations.  The financiers of the proposition are expected ia Greenwood  before the holidays, and it is  quite likely that a commencement  will be made ia the coarse of a  very few weeks.  This will be the f nest thing  that could happen for Greenwood  camp, and will mean muck for  the city, which is prepared to  show its good faith in the undertaking by a grant of $50,000  instalments as the big hole  driven into the hill.  in  is  LOCAL ITEMS.  Board of Trade  annual general meeting: of  the Board of Trade was held on  Wednesday evening.  The secretary-treasurer's report,  was presented a^ud a cdram i i Wc  consisting of J. E. McAllister, F  W. McLaine, H. Bunting, Din-  can Mcintosh and' T. M. Guilev,  was appointed to. go into t��-��e  matter of freight rates.  The committee will report t<> a  special meeting on Wednesday  evening and this report will be  laid before the Associated Boards.  It is reported that ,the owners  of the Tip Top in the high-grade  belt of Greenwood camp will resume operations at the first of the  year on that well-known property.  Work on the Bonanza, a   free-  ���  i '  gold property ���_ Sheepc?Cr����k^i��-  progressing favorably, the work  in hand being a cress-out to reach  a lead of from 4 to 6 feet of ore.  The Centre Star is constructing  a spur from the C.P.R. to facilitate shipments.  Two miners have come ont of  Iagenica with 57 ounces, of $17  gold.  The final payment ofg2000has  been paid on the Laura group,  Kamloops camp.  Ah^engineer of the Amalgamated Copper Co., of Butte, Montana, is making an examination  of extensive copper deposits between Ashcroft and Nicola.  A meeting will be held in the  Presbyterian church, Wednesday  evening, December 16th, at 8 45  p.m., for the purpose of organizing a Local Option League, All  citizens interested in the local option movement are earnestly requested to be present.  Oa Tuesday afternoon Ernest  W. Kingsley and Mrs, Ida Terry,,  both of Molson, Wash., were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at'the Methodist Parsonage  Greenwood, by the Rev. F. J.

The Thompson Stationery company, Vancouver, had a representative soliciting orders for print-  ting in Greenwood last Saturday.  The young man neglected the  little formality of taking ont a  license aud left just previous to  an intended interview with the  man with the star.  The curlers held a meeting on  Monday night and have things in  a very satisfactory shape. Applications have beea coming in  rapidly, and it is expected that  the club will have a membership  et 55 or 60. Intending members  should send in their names and  fees at once as the rinks will be  scheduled next week. ���  Land Lookers,  A party of Nelson lutnberm mi  who recently purchased a trroup  of eleven timber claims on the  Kettle river from John H. East  and associates have secured a site  for a saw-mill at the mouth of  Ingraham creek from F. Rich ter,  and will probably build a mill at  that point in the near future.  A. J Aberhethy,of Dakota, Eugene Hibbert, of Idaho, and Mr,  Stubbs, of Stubbs and Pitts, Nelson, came in with Mr. East this  week and went ou* to look at land  in the Kettle Valley with a view  to locating and purchasing.  Hockey,  The Greenwood hockey-players  have organized for the season  with Dr. W. L Spankie as manager, and will begin practice as  soon as'the rink is in shape.  The Boundary hockey teams���  Phoenix, Grand Forks and Greenwood, will play a series of .four  matches in each town for a cup,  the money for which is to be rais-  ed by friends-of the'teams in all  three cities.  Phoenix already have their  contributions in hand, and it is  expected there will be no trouble  in securing the support asked for  in Greenwood.  We can look forward to some  first-class exhibitions of the game  during the winter if the necessary  encouragement is given.  There are 450 men employed at  the St. Eugene mine   at   Moyie  *-  and the pay .roll today amounts  to $46,000.  Work is being steadily prosecuted oa the big showings of low-  grade sulphide copper ore ia the  Telkwa section by three or four  companies.  The True Fissure and Mining  and Milling company have completed their purchase of the True  Fissure, St. Elmo and Blue Bell  mines at Ferguson.  It is reported the Eva mine, at  Cambourne, has been sold to a  Washington syndicate who will  adopt a big plan of development  and increase the mill to sixty  stamps.

ZAM-BUK AS A   v  CURE FOR PILES  Impreosive Cures fdr Women Sufferers  Our readers should note these cases  Wherever there is suffering from piles,  Zam Buk should be applied! There are  lots of reasons for this, but one of the  best'is that in practically all cases of  pilesvrhere where the use of Zam-Buk  is preserved with complete cure ���not  mer;e relief���is the result.  Mrs. Wm. Hughes, of 253, Hochelaga  Street, Hoehefcga, Montreal, savs:���"I  suffered from blind, itching, and protruding piles for, years. Sometimes  they were go bad that'{.could hardly  bear to move about. The inflammation  the'burning smarting pain, the throbbing, aching, the overpowering feelings of dullness and dark despair whioh  ailment brings: the shooting spasms of  agony'���all were so terrible that only  sufferers from this awful ailment can  understand!"  Bad as this case was, Zam Buk trium  phed, and Mrs. Hughes suffers no Ion  ger. It needed a little perseverance  Zam Buk certainly, but in the end it  cured. * ���.      '  Mrs. E. Boxall, of Scott Street, St.  Thomas, says, "For months without  cessation I endured a great pain from  bleeding piles. For as many months I  tried everything which I thought  would give me ease, but in tbe end,  dispirited and rtill suffering,! gave in"  Then it was she heard of Zam Buk,  and she adds: "Although I feared.Zam-  Buk would be like the ordinary remedies���useless���I am glad it was not. It  soon proved itself to be very different.  It rapidly gave me relief, and after a  time cured me completely. I v^ould  like to let all sufferersfrom pile* know  what a grand thing Zam-Buk is."  So one could go on quoting case after  case, and it is by working such cures  that Zam Buk has earnen for itself its  great reputation.  Now if you suffer from this terribly  painful ailment just be guided by the  foregoing cases !  For internal piles melt a little Zam-  Buk and thoroughly soak a wad, made  of clean but old linen.
