Presentment of the Grand Jury  To the Honourable Mr. Justice Morrison, Presiding Judge of Assize.  May it please your Lordship: ���  The Grand Jury desire to give you  a cordial welcome to Greenwood.  In accordance with your instructions  we have visited the various institutions  of a public character in the district and  find them all in a satisfactoroy condition with the following exceptions, to  which we wish to draw attention:���  There should undoubtly be an electric fire alarm box in the hospital building, as the nearest box at present is at  a very considerable distance therefrom:  As regards the school the water  closets are dark, in an unsatisfactory  condition and require more regular  supervision- Further, the drop of the  fire escape seems rather high for children. The building is only heated by  stoves and steam heating would be  preferable as regards safety This  has been before suggested by a Grand  Jury.  We recommend that the inspection  of all milk for public sale and of the  sources from whence it comes should  be rigidly carried out.  We believe that some form of inspection of liquor sold on licenced  premises should be provided, if not  already in existence, and carried  out.  We desire to express   our satisfaction at the present efficiency  of the  provincial police force in this district.  All of which is respectfully submitted.  W. L> C.

True  bill on last eount only.  Rex vs. Alex. McNeice, carrying offensive weapon. Not guilty.  Rex vs. William and Cleve  Newman, Robbery, H, A._McLean for Crown, J. D. Spence for  defendants.  This case was what is known  as the Bridesville hold-up and  was disposed of at the afternoon  session, the jury returning a verdict of guilty.  The prisoners entered a plea of  not guilty, and offered no evidence in rebuttal of the testimony  of Ben Hart, who confessed to  having been the third man who  took part in the robbery and who  gave a graphic description of  their movements from the 16th  to the 20th of December last.  Hart's evidence was supported  by the testimony of Mrs. Ravens-  craft and her daughter.and showed bow the dirty business had  been planned and carried out.and  incidentally of the failure of their  attempt to rob the store at Havil-  lah, Wash. For the defence, Mr.  J. D. Spence made a strong plea  on the point of the unreliability  of the testimony of the principal  Crown witnesses, though the  chain of circumstances was of  such a nature as to leave but little doubt of the guilt of the prisoners.  Bill Newman and his brother  Cleve Newman, were sentenced to  twenty years penal servitude,  while Benjamin Hart, who turned  King's evidence, was . released on  suspended sentence.  In the presence of the "Times"  editor Ben Hart made a presentation of his revolver to Chief  Constable Bunbury with the statement that he wpuldxajrry^.a gun  no more, and that in the future  he could be counted on as an upholder of law and order in the  Boundary.  The conviction of these desperate characters is a matter for congratulation for the whole Boundary country, and the credit of  course is due to Chief Constable  Bunbury and his staff.  Captain Bunbury's description  of the separate arrests of the  trie at the muzzle of the officers'  guns was as interesting as it was  simple and modest, and shows  that the western country can cope  with any trouble that may arise  when the right man is put in  charge of the situation  >����4��������0(>**fe0a**,��-������fi-e��<gH(-*a  ! MINES AND MINING!  �� *  A, Ikeda, of thfi Ikeda mines,  Queen Charlotte Islands, is looking over the mines and smelters  in the Boundary.  The enlarging of the Granby  Smelter will increase the gross  smelting capacity of the plant  from 3,200 to 4,500 tons of ore  daily.  The new American tariff on  zinc amounts to $8 a ton on 40  per cent ore which is prohibitive.  Gr eenwood-'Mid-way Trunk  Road  Orient camp is to have a cyanide  plant for the local treatment of  ores by the Hess process.  A Catton  smelter is to be installed near Conconully.  A 30-foot vein has been uncovered on the Gold Dust property  on Kruger mountain.  Bruce White has 14 men at  work on the Belcher mine at Republic.  The First Thought mine at  Orient reports a strike on the  second level below the tunnel that  runs as high as $200 in gold.  Copper to the extent ot 94}^  tens was produced in Southern  Rhodesia in 1908.  One acre-foot   of  water equals  355,850 gallons,  The work of equalizing the  grades on tne Greenwood-Midway  road has been almost completed,  aud when the grade is out at  Kerr's ranch near Boundary Falls  it will be ready for automobiles,  mule-trains, or tally-hos.  This very necessary work is a  matter of great importance to the  community, as the traffic of late  has been increasing materially.  Road Foreman Wilmhurst has  also put the finishing touches on  the new Ingram bridge, the last  of which was 100 gallons of Mineral paint. The New structure  is of the Hiwa tress pattern  with a span of 164 feet. It eon-  tains 13 tons of iron and the heavy  stringers were brought in from  the coast, the rest of the timber  being furnished by Craigie's mill  at Boundary Falls.   .  THE ARGO MINING CO*  Bright Prospects    for   Green*-  wood's Souttvend  Tunnel  Death of an Old/Timer  Mr. Frecheville, the eminent  mining engineer, emphasises his  opinion that large expansion is in  store for Canadian mining industry, both in established and new  fields.  It is reported that the Le Roi  will resume work in the near future.  If you desire to clean   land   in  the vicinity of Victoria,   or   auy  place  else in   British   Columbia  and use fire in doing so, you must  obtain a permit from the government a pent in your district. From  now until the first of October  no  fires may be kindled for land clearing purposes unless   the   persons  interested take out such a permit.  For Victoria district permits may  be obtained  at   the   government  building's in   the   lands  department.     The   department   is   at  present sending out to the government agents throughout   British  Columbia blank books of permits  to be filled out as required.    This  regulations was enacted   at   the  last session   of   the   legislation,  when a bill amending the   Bush  Fire Act was passed.    This  provides a penalty  for   non-compliance with the regulation  and ordains that after the permit is obtained the fires must be watched,  managed and eared for so that no  damage may ensue and   so  that  the fire mav not get beyond  control.���Victoria Colonist.  Col. C. Christopher of Seattle,  has purchased the patent rights  of the Catton smelter for California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon  and New Mexico, from the State  Mining and Smelting Company  and, with W. S. Keith as consulting engineer, will erect a furnace of 50 tons daily capacity in  each state for practical commercial work.  The funeral of the late Thomas  Curry, aged 65 years, took place  from the Roman Catholic church  on Monday, Rev. Father Bedard  officiating. Deceased was a native of Boston and one of the oldest old-timers in the Boundary  and Similkameen, at one time being employed on the estate of the  late Judge Haines.  In partnership with J. A. Tuzo  he had been engaged in the development of some very promising claims on the West Fork,and  on the morning of his death was  proceeding up the Rawhide trail  in company with Mr. Tuzo to  their work when he suddenly expired, death being due to heart  trouble.  Canadian Mining Institute  An English report recently issued places the production of iron  ore in the world at 129,000,000  in 1907. The contents of the  known American fields is estimated 5,000,000,000 tons or about  half the supply of the world. The  Spanish mines are said to contain  5000,000,000 tons and their output 10,000,000 per annum. The  deposit in the United Kingdom  according to the leport of the  ���reological Survey of Sweden in  1904 was 1,000,000 tons of 70  year's supply. The world's output of pig iron which is 60,000,-  000 tons per annum, is likely to  increase to 100,000,000 in 1950.  At the meeting of the Canadian  Mining Institute held at Coleman,  Alta., on the 25th inst., W. A.  Davidson, M.E., occupied the  chair. Several papers were presented. 0��e of these was by W.  J. Powell, mine manager of the  International company's mine of  which a description was given,  together with the particulars of  the system of ventilation and bf  haulage; another was by E. Jacobs on "Notes on coal mining,  etc,, in Alberta," this being a  summary of recently published  official reports, and a third by  F. W. Gray, of Sydney, C.B., on  "Oxygen Breathing Apparatus  in coal mines." The other business done was chiefly routine.  Two applications   for membership were received.

May 26 -Closing quotations on  the New York curb and Spokane  exchange:  McRae Brothers have  finished  shipping their stock of stationery  goods   to   Prince   Rupert where  they will   establish a business in I  the G.T.P. terminal.  During twelve years in business  in Greenwood McRae Brothers  have enjoyed a splendid reputation as business-men, and also a  fair share of prosperity which all  who have ever done business with  them will hope will follow them  in their new location.  Work is progressing on the  Argo tunuel at the south end of  the city and five sets of timber  ars already in place.  The people to whom the license  for this big mining undertaking  was issued are all local men and  Messrs. Black and Lof.stad expect  to have tbe articles of ^corporation for their companv within a  few days The plan of incorporation calls for the issue of 50O.&OO  shares at 25c, which is to be used  in the actual work ot developing  the high-grade properties in the  south end of the cam[> including  the Mayflower, the Argo, the  Empress, the Helen, and other  well-known prospects. The tunnel is running in the direction of  the Skylark mine, and will cut at  depth a series of veius on which  shafts have been sunk to depths  of about 100 feet, and which it  became necessary to discontinue  because of the heavy inflows of  water.  The first shaft which the tunnel will reach in a distance of 640  feet from the portal, was first  worked ten years ago by Wood  and Galloway and at the bottom  of the 115 foot shaft the vein had  widened to IS teet and carried  free gold, native silver, galena,  and copper.  Two hundred feet farther the  tunnel will pass beneath the second shaft in practically the same  ore, at a depth of 700 feet.  The next shaft which will be  met 300 feet farther on, is on the  Empress fraction at which point  adepth of 1,000 feet will be obtained on a lead from 2 to 4 feet  wide which gives an average assay value of $90 to the ton.  ~As about $4,000 worth of development work has already beeu  done on these properties with the  most encouraging results m the  way of exceedingly rich gold and  silver ore, the prospects for a big  success in the undertaking are exceptionally bright.  The management figures on  running 100 feet a month at a cost  of not more than $10 a foot for  the first 200'feet. They have all  the necessary equipment on the  ground in the way of shops, cars,  rails, etc.. and there is a plentiful  supply of first-class mine timber  on the property. The tunnel is  on a level with and but a few hundred yards distant from the B.C.  Copper company's smelter,  Tbat there is rich ore in the  hill in divers piaces has been pro-  en by the shafts and surfacework-  ings, and when the Argo tunnel  taps these deposits of precious  metals at a depth of 1,000 feet  the company will have a boaaiza  property.

BAD LEG FOR 60 YEARS  Zam-Buk Works a Complete Cure  A London cable says that the  Royal Humane Society's medal  was awarded to Lionel Sharp,  Vancouver, for saving a boy's  life on April 15th.  The total bank clearings at Vancouver for the week ending May  20 were $5,050,521, as compared  with $3,457,152 for the corresponding week of last year.  Rc-aejv-od Hig-Wt Aw-avro!  Dominion Exhibition 1906  L,  A drowning accident occurred  at one of the camps of the Big  Bend Lumber Company, 14 miles  from Revelstoke, last week. A  workman named Ivor Sutherland,  was, with his brother, engaged  in an attempt to break a log jam  when the jam gave way, and Of  the two brothers, Ivor never recovered himself.  The Cameron brothers of Cranbrook accused of setting fire to  the Mayook lumberyards were acquitted of the charge.  Mrs.  J. Minett, of 192 Thurbers Av-  enu:,   Providence,  Rhode   Island, has  been cured by Zam Buk of   a bad leg,  which had dc tied all Jemedies for sixty  long years.   She says:���"When a child  of eight, I was bitten on  the leg by a  dofj.   A doctor cantarised   the   place,  but it never healed   up soundlv, aud I  have suffored wilh an ulcerated leg for  over sixty years, This occurred in England, and many English doctors tried  in vain to heat the sore.   At one time  I was an in-patient at the East Suffolk  Hospital   for  a   long  period, and for  three years I was in and out  of hospitals.    I was continually  in   paiu, and  the sore would not heal, but continued j  to discharge     Twelve   months   ago  I!  came out here to my daughter,and during the voyage I had to keep my   bed,  The ship's doctor  examined   my  leg",  and gave me a plaster, which I   had to  take off again as it made   the  pain so  intense. When I reached my daughters  house, she sent for a medical man, who  said uethiug could ever do it any good-  They said my leg would never be well.  "One day my youngest daughter  brought home a box of Zam-Buk, and  induced me to try it- With the first  application I seemed to find ease, "end  further treatment with Zam-Buk dik  me so much good that I sent for a proper supply. I kept on with the Zam-  Buk treatment anb soon saw that the  wound was getting better. The discharge was reduced, and the pain was  eased. I persevered with the Zam-Buk  and, to cut a long story short, it effected a cure. It is marvellous to think  that alter suffering for sixty years,  Zam-Buk has been able to make my  leg perfectly sound."  Zam-Buk is a sure cure for cuts, lacerations,  burns,   eczema, ring-worm,  piosoned wounds, festering sores, bad  leg, and all skin injuries and diseases,  It is also a cure for piles. Druggists  and stores everywhere sell at 50c a box  or post free from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, on receipt of price.

I  Everybody  Agrees  that COD  LIVER OIL snd IRON  tue  beyond question the greatest mftdi*  cines known. Then why doe* not  everybody take Cod Liver Oil and  Iron? Simply became most people  cannot take the Oil aadfsw can digest  the Iron in any ordinary Sorta. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is scientifically combined with tho Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable and the Iron digestible.  While  FERROL  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and is richer  in oil than any other  emu! lion, and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron I  ind Phosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds  *ny trouble in taking it,  and infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover the well-established value of  the   Oil   and    Iron    is    immensely  enhanced by the process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to t��  wondered at that  physicians    everywhere    have    fully  endorsed FERROL and used it largely  in their practice.
