Retallack, Kaslo,  B: C:  Dear Sir:. You will probnblv have  noticed in the press that the Dominion  government is about to conduct an  examination and report.on the zinc resources of this province, from physical  and economic standpoints.  The investigation', is to be conducted  by Professor Ingalls, admittedly the  first authority on this subject on the  coiitinent, _who  is  expected   to_ coin^  I THE CARII CAMP  On the West Fork of tfte  Kettle River.

Although this plan originated locally, the investigation is to embrace  all sections of the province'in which  zinc is known to exist in commercial,  or what under mining and transportation development can be made commercial quantities.  In this connection, in order to assist  the good work, will you kindly favor  me at your earliest convenience with a  reply to the following questions :  1. Does zinc ore occur iii your district in what is locally considered to  be commercial quantities ?  2. If so, in what precise locality or  localities? /  3. Names of properties  and   owners.  Unless   some  development shows a  definite tonnage or in the case of an  undeveloped prospect the showing is  so large as to be remarkable,. it is  hardly to be expected that Professor  Ingalls will have sufficient time at his  disposal to,make a personal examination, in which case data supplied by  yourself or any other thoroughly reliable local authority will be of much  value.    Yours truly,  John L. Rictai.i.ack.  Kaslo. B  C, August 22, 1905.  PRESBYTERY MEETING.  The Presbytery of Kootenay will  hold its half yearly meeting in Greenwood Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs-  day of next week in the Presbyterian  church. On Wednesday evening at 8  o'clock a public meeting  will  be held,  which the Rev. J. T. Ferguson, B. D.,  of Nelson, and the Rev. A. Dunn, 13.  A., of Eernie, will address the meeting  on the subject: " The value 'of the  Gospel to society." Special music by  the choir. The public are cordially invited.  Carmi camp on the West Fork of  Kettle river is situate about 60 miles  from Greenwood on the proposed line  of the Midway and Vernon railway,  and 28 miles from Pentiction, at the  foot of Okanagan lake. There is a  good wagon road between Greenwood  and Carmi, on which a stage runs  twice a week, leaving Greenwood Wed  nesday and Saturday , mornings. Between Carmi and Penticton there is a  government trail.  The first locations in  the camp, the  Carmi and Butcher Boy, were made by  James C. Dale in the fall of 1896.   The  Carmi   group   comprises   the   Carmi,  Butcher   Boy,  B A Fraction, No.   2  Fraction,  May,  and  Hartford, all located on the same lead.    On the Carmi  the most  extensive development has  been done.   It consists of of a number of open cuts,  shafts and tunnels.  Commencing at Discovery a shaft was  sunk 100 feet and a tunnel run 85 feet,  both on the lead, and surface crosscuts  exposing   the lead for a distance of  1200 feet.    Shaft No. 2 is also on the  lead and has been  sunk fo a depth of  65 feet, timbered throughout.   West of  No. 2 about two hundred feet No. 3  ���'shaft.was.sunk to a depth of  183. feet  on   the ore.    From  this shaft drifts  were run at the 100-foot ��evel 50 feet  east and 65: feet west, and at 165 feet  a drift  was  run 105  feet.   About 880  tons of ore were taken out.   The mine  is also equipped with a 50-horseppwer  poiler,_a hoist,  a Cameron and  a Duplex sinking pump, a battery of two  Tremain stamps, and a .battery of five  gravity stamps,   making  in   all seven  stamps, one concentrating table-and  two amalgamating plates.   The Carmi  was purchased some years ago by an  English   syndicate,    at   the   head   of  whichds  E. H.  Thruston.   The_ purchase  is not looked upon as one of tne  most   fortunate    happenings   in   the  camp, as  development  has been  of a  rather   intermittent  nature since Mr.  Thruston took charge.  ^'"WesTahdad joining the"Carmiis=the  B H Fraction, 150 feet wide on  the  lead.   No work has been  done one the  claim. .  \  West of this is the Butcher Boy.  The lead has been prospected across  the claim by surface crosscuts, There  is a 75-foot shaft, with drifts 50 feet  west and ,35 feet east at the 70-foot  level, from which 65 tons of ore were  shipped to the Greenwood smelter.  West is the May, with a 35-foot tunnel on the lead.  The Hartford is eaBt of the Carmi  and is developed by a 28-foot tunnel  and open crosscute.  South of the Carmi is the Lillie,  owned by J. O. Thompson and Win,  Morton. The lead has been expoed  for a considerable distance by open  crosscuts anct a shaft has been sunk  SO feet.  The next group of claims ib the  Rossland and Detroit, about a mile  and a half northwest of the Carmi,  with a 35-foot shaft and a 65-foot tunnel and a number of smaller shafts  and open cuts. The claims are owned  by D. English, B. Schultz, and M.  Gannon.'  About a mile east of the Carmi are  the Observatory, Chloride and Jumbo  claims, owned by Jas. C. Dale, R. D.  Kerr and Wm: Morton. Development  consists of a 20-foot shaft, a 90-foot  tunnel and a considerable amount ut  surface work.  West of Carmi are the St Lawrence,  Copper Queen, Crown King, and  Emma. Development of this group  has been done on the St. Lawrence  and Emma. On the St. Lawrence  there is a 100-foot tunnel and several  small   shafts    and   open   cuts.      The  one 30 and the other 20 feet, both on  the lead.  Lying south of the Carmi about two  miles are the Colorado Madura and-  Cold Stream claims, owned by O. E.  Anderson, Thos King and H. McKay.  Development consssts of a 75-fobt  shaft, and four tunnels���150, 40, and  two 30-foot tunnels. Besides these  there are a number of small shafts and  open cuts.  This is practically all the development, with the exception of one and  two years' assessments, done in the  vicinity of Carmi.  The ore of the camp is medium  grade, shipments to the smelter giving  returns of from $37 to over $100 per "  ton in gold and silver. Results from  the ore put through the stamps have  not beon obtained. The work so; far  done oh the Carmi has not been what  might be termed economical or practical* mining. A large sum of money  has been expended in equipment lor  the development done. However, the  machinery is on the ground and in  good condition. The state of the machinery may be accounted for by the  fact that an order comes to the mine  occasionally to have it " unwatered."  Then steam is got up and the pumps  worked nightand day until the mine  is clear. A few daystafter a cable will  be received: "Close the blawsted mine  until the tennis season is ovea !"  At the junction of Carmi creek and  the West Fork Jas. C. Dale has platted  a very pretty townsite. And all that  is required for the development of the  camp and the growth of the town is  transportation facilities, which will be  secured with the building of the Midway and Vernon up the West Fork -  next year.

The ambulance is expected here in a few days  and will be the property of the cit3'.  Dr. Spankie deserves the thanks of the  community for his efforts in raising  the funds for this very neccessary  conveyance, where the work is of a  dangerous uature and injuries of frequent occurrence. The city donates  the cost in excess of $500.  A tin-bearing formation is being-  prospected in a Transvaal district  many miles from Bushveld. The  country rock of this district is pegmatite. The cassiterite occurs in very  distinct crystals in association with  quartz and felspar.

Per Yeak  .   2 00  Six Months  1*25  To Foreign Countries. 2 50  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1005.  Dr. Osler, why did you trifle  with the Greenwood Board of  Trade?  An expenditure of a small  amount of money by the munici-  -pal council in shade trees for the  cemetery would be a good investment. Attractiveness pays even  in a mining- town.  If that threatened libel suit  against the Boundary Greek  Times does not materialize soon,  the people will accept the charges  made against the commissioners  ��� as true.���Grand Forks Sun.  It is pleasing to note that the  provincial government has as far  ���- as possible made amends for the  action of the Boundary license  commissioners by appointing  an experienced officer to protect  the people of Midway.  The world  is not as bad  as  pessimists paint it. In this city  two able-bodied men devote their  services gratis for the purpose of  giving the Tory party an organ.  But up to the present the paper  has persistently refused to come  to the rescue of the Boundary  creek license commissioners.1���  Grand Forks Sun.  During the past few weeks  there have been many mining  men in the Boundary. The big-  low-grade" properties always attract outside mining men, but the  high-grade belt is now becoming  widely known in the mining  world, with the result that many  investors are coming here to examine for themselves.  -The Tariff Commission,, composed of Hon. W. S. Fielding,  minister of finance; Hon. Win.  Patterson, minister of customs,-  and Hon. L. P. Brodeur, minister  of inland* revenue, will visit British Columbia next week. Sittings  will probably be held at Victoria,  Vancouver and Nelson. : The  members of the commission will  visit Rossland arid the Boundary  but will not hold meetings else-  where in the province.  North. Vancouver is across  Burrard Inlet from Vancouver.  It is growing very rapidly and is  sure to become a place of importance.. The first requisite in  a live growing town is' a live  newwspaper. North Vancouver  is fortunate in this respect. The  Times has received No. 1, Vol. I  of the Express. Typogr?phically  it is a thing of beauty. . George  Bartley is director-general of the:  new venture and if the people of  North Vancouver are an appreciative lot, George has at last found  his true mission.  Manson, the Conservative candidate in the recent provincial  bye-election in Alberni, secured  his majority with the assistance  of impersonators brought from  Vancouver to "Wellington. One  of those is now in the toils. Billy  Saunders," who! was" a saloon  keeper before Bob Green vested  him with the dignity of the position of sergeant-at-arms, was  very busy looking after the plug-  gers on election day. Thus does  the first Conservative government  British Columbia ever had observe the. ancient customs of the  party.���������    ; ������-        . ���  Work Has been commenced on  thelielivlirlms^cmtm^  The . preliminaries ���> took some  time, but now that the actual  start has been made things-will  move more quickly. Last week  McMillan & Co.. a Manitoba firm,  secured the contract for 275 miles  from Portage la Prairie to Touch-  word in the Northwest territories.  This .week the contract from  Fort William northward to connect with the main line will be  let. The Transcontinental- Railway commission, which has  charge of the government portion of the line, will also award  contracts this fall.  u There is some trouble about  the composition of the zinc commission, and the wires have been  kept hot with,protests against  against one of the minor appointees, It is greatly to be regretted that the efficiency of"the  work should be marred by any  lack of sympathy with the personnel of the commission. Iu  order to secure the best results it  is essential that men should be  employed who possess the fullest  confidence of the mine owners,  otherwise valuable information  will be withheld. It is not yet  too late to remedy a most unfortunate appointment, aud Dr.  Haanel should have the courage  to admit aud rectify' his error  without delay.���Nelson Tribune.  Wm. Burrows, a clerk in the  Metropolitan hotel, London, Ontario, was the other day fined  for selling cigars in the hotel on  the Lord's Day. It is no more  lawful for a hotelman to sell  cigars than for a tobacconist or a  druggist. Magistrate Love's  judgment is clear cut and decisive. Several similar convictions have been recorded in the  Toronto police court.���-Lord's  Day Advocate, From the foregoing it would be safe to assume  that the very good people of Ontario are gradually drifting towards the worship of the Ancient  Britains, and it would not be at'all  surprising to hear that they had  picked on Wednesday or Thursday as a day to worship, and as  a logical sequence v had erected  altars to Woden or Thor.  All manner of chances to win premiums for for fruit displays are {riven  by the Spokane Interstate fair this  year. Eight hundred dollars in premiums are offered for ttie best general  exhibit of green-fruit made by a county,  district or individual. The money is  divided so as to give everybody a  chance. The exhibit scoring the highest will receive a prize of $150 in cash.  The exhibit scoring the second highest  wins $100, the third highest wins S75,  and the fojr.th 9?50. This is not all.  The exhibit which is made in the best  taste, design and arrangement will be  given $75, the second best $50, the  third best $30* and the fourth best $20.  Even this is not all. $250 will be divided among all exhibitors in this  class who .have exhibits . scoring 70  points or more. This gives everybody  a chance to win something. Entries  in this class should be made by September 30 in order to secure space.  Chamberlain's  Cough   Remedy  Aids  .������'; Nature.. .  Medicines that aid nature are aiways  most effectual.

All precious-stones found in Russia  are the property of the czar, and the  finest aresent to the imperial palace  at St. Petersburg-.  India furnishes SO per cent of the  world's output of mica, while Canada  and the United States produce nearly  all the remainder.  It takes from 300 to 350 g-allons of  sea water to produce one bushel of salt  while the salt wells at Syracuse, N. Y.,  will produce a bushel of salt from 35  g-allons of brine.  British coal mine inspectors report  that boys are rapidly being superseded by girls and young women at  the 'picking- table on the cleaning  plant. This increase of female labor  is due to careless and inattentive work  on the part of the boys.  The purest native silver known is  that found with the native copper ores  of Lake Superior, it being almost  chemically pure. The Lake Superior  native silver specimens when crystal-  ised afford at times the most superb  specimens of the metal in the world.  -The most remarkable fall of meteorites known to history was that which  occurred at L'Aigle in France in 1803.  Between 2,000 and 3,000 ;meteoric  stones fell over ah area of nine miles  long by three wide, some of which  weighed 50 pounds or more.  The extreme length of Mexico is  1,900 miles and its greatest width is  750 miles. The lofty Rocky mountain  plateau fills it nearly from ocean to  ocean leaving but a narrow strip of  coast. Its total area is 795,560 square  miles, and the population about 14,-  000,000.  In 1829 a; stanaaro. troy pound in  brass, brought from England, was declared by act of congress the legal  standard of the United States mint.  Ths weight of a troy .pound as compared with an avoirdupoise pound, is  as 5,760 to 7,000, or as 144 to 175. The  name troy weight is supposed to have  been derived from the town of Troyes,  France, when it was first applied by  goldsmiths.  Galvanized iron is made according  to two methods���the hot, or dipping  method, and the electrolytic method.  Tests on the two resulting products  indicate that the electrolytic- deposition of the zinc on the iron is: more  uniform and adheres better than does  the coating produced by the hot  ���method.  The manufacture of explosives ranks  as one of the leading industries of  southwest England; It is noteworthy  that notwithstanding the large amount  of explosive material manufactured,  there were in 1904 but five fa talti.es in  Devon aiid Cornwall, where the bulk  of the product is handled.  A large majority of the Latin-  American countries are on" the g"old  standard, Bolivia and Colombia being  the two most important countries to  adopt silver. ^.Thc unit of coinage in  the Central and SouHi American republics is almost always the peso,  which   has   about  the  smile  value  as  similar to our present stamp mills.

The immense.waste  heaps, composed principally of . suP  phate of lime, which are to be seen at  many of the chemical works in England, are to be used in making this  new cement. The process consists of  recrystallizing this waste into a patent  white cement, which gives a perfectly  smooth surface, with- a polish similar  to glass and' yet svfficiently porous to  fake paint. This cement can be used  for the same purposes as other cements  and is said to have an advantage, in  that while they require a backing of  Portland cement, it can be used with  Portland or backing of two parts sand  and one part of the plaster itself.  Other advantages claimed are that it  takes less time to spread with the corresponding saving in labor and wages.  This cement has been tested at the  hydraulic cement works and it created  much surprise by standing a tensile  strain nearly equal to the best hydraulic cement.  Chamberlain's Couirh Remedy.

This year all  the latest designs and improvements  in implements, machinery, motors and  engines will be shown.  THREE JUROKS CURED  the United States "dollar.  The vitiation of mine air by firing  explosives is due, of course, to the formation of a large amount of carbon  dioxide. This, however, is formed  without taking any oxygen directly  from the air, and therefore reduces the  percentage of oxygeji by dilution -..nly  and not by consumption It has in j  fact been shown that the explosion of  nitro-glyceritie may add a small  amount of oxygen to the air.  The division of applied geology of  the United States National museum'  includes all those mineral substances  which are supposed to be of practical  value. The exhibit. induces ores of  the precious, base and rare metals;  clavs aud abrasives; such earths as  "limes, plasters, cements, sands, mica,  asbestos, chalk, tripoli, etc.; hydrocarbons and asphalts, and ornamental  and building stones.

The trail was taken up next day .  By a lone dog- that passed that way ;  And then a wise belt-weather sheep  Pursued the trail o'er vale and steep,  And drew the Hock behind him, too,  As good bell-weathers always do.  And from that day, o'er hill and glade,  Through those old woods a path was  made;  And-many men wound iu and out  And dodged and turned and beat about,  And muttered words of righteous wrath  - Because 'twas such a crooked path.  But still they followed���do not laugh���  The first migrations of the cafl,  And   through   this  winding  woodway  stalked,  Bec.'.n e lie wabbled  when he walked.

The crooked lane became a road,  Where many a poor horse, with ;i load,  Toiled on beneath the burning sun,  And traveled some three miles in one.  And thus, a century and a Half,  They trod in the footsteps of that calf.  The years passed on in swiftness fleet,  The village road became a street;  And this, before men were aware,  Became a crowded thoroughfj re.

W. Fowler of Hightower.Ala.  relates   an   experience   he had while  serving on a petit jury  in  a murder  case at Edwardsville,  county  seat of  Clebourne county, Alabama.   He says:  " While there I ate some fresh  meat  and some sous meat and it gave me  cholera morbus in a very severe form.  I   was   never   more  sick  in   my   life  and sent to  the drug store for a certain cholera mixture, but the druggist  sent me a bottle of "Chain bef Iain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy  instead, saying that he had what I  sent for, but that this medicine was  so much better he would rather send it  to me in the fix I was in. I. took one  dose of it and was better in five  minutes. The second dose cured me  entirely. Two fellow jurors were  afflicted in the same manner and one  twenty-five cent bottle cured the three  of us."    For sale by all druggists.
