Suitings our lines arc specially attractive.  As a strong demand is foretold for  Gray of all Weaves and Styles of Cloths,  and also White and Black Checks and  Stripes, we are making a special feature  of these novelties.  Women's Goods  "Oh, it is pitiful, near a whole  cityful, gone mad  over  Cobalt,"  is in effect the verdict of a man  recently returned  from a visit to  Toronto.    And that reminds us  of a  story.    Once upon  a time,  not many  moons ago, a Greeu-  wood man asked admission to tlie  columns of the   Toronto Globe,  wherein to tell briefly, from time  to time, a true story of the progress of the Boundary.    The request for space was declined because the   writer   said   Toronto  people a few years back had lost  money  in the Boundary.    They  lost,   howeveV, what  other   Toronto   people found,   the  money  they put  into stocks in British  Columbia, stock, too,  iu concerns  that are payiug today,    But they  wanted quick returns, and those  they bought of wanted quick returns,   too.     The sellers of the  stock got the returns and the buyers didn't.    For  that reason the  great Toronto daily thought the  good people of Toronto were not  interested in hearing of the progress  and  prosperity  of British  Columbia.    Picked up at random,  we have before us the Globe of  March 2nd.    In it we find a dozen  columns of reading and advertising matter devoted to Cobalt, one  advertisement alone having;  pictured therein 55 mills in  the Cobalt district, with smoke  issuing.  from the tall chimneys.  Upon the best available data it  is computed that Cobalt camp is  today capitalized for about $350,-  000,000, and its output to date is  set down at about $5,000,000.  And yet the entire capitalization  of the Boundary today, exclusive  of Rossland, is only about S30,-  000,000. And yet this little ueck  of the woods, between Grand  Forks and Midway, a strip of  country containing not oyer 250  square miles of active mining  ground, has, in the last six years,  mined and smelted on the ground  $25,000,000 worth of ore. That  is to say. the output of the active  properties in five or six years  equals the capitalization of the  district, and mining has only  been fairly begun. A low grade  camp is necessarily slow of development.  Cobalt's surface is as rich aud  far more certain than the depths,  while millions must be invested  here before substantial returns  may be reasonably expected.  It certainly looks as if Toronto  bad not recovered from its sore-  "ffe��s"over"failure"of -its^smalHin-  vestments in British Columbia,  and was trying to drown its sorrow in a Cobalt drunk.  The Pacific Hotel Destroyed by Fire  Early Thursday JVlorninjr.  A fire that resulted disastrously lo  Messrs. Greig and Morrison, owners  and proprietors ot. the Pacific hotel,  and which at one time threatened to  work the destruction of the Windsor  hotel adjoining-, occurred on Thursday  morning- last.  About 2 o'clock,while Howard Moore,  night cook, was on shift, and at a moment when he actually had several  steaks cooking-, in some unaccountable  way the fire slatted, and" quicker than  thought enveloped the entire range and  extended to all parts of the kitchen.  Water appeared to have no effect upon  it and owing- to the dryness of the  wood surroundings the blaze was fierce  and terrific.  The firemen were soon on the ground  and fought the fire stubbornly and  were able to con tire it to the hotel  building-, neither the oue-story frame  cigar store on the north or the three-  story frame hotel building on the south  suffering to any extent.  Mayor Bunting- was early on the  ground, and speaks in very complimentary terms of the efficiency of the  department.  The lower floor of the hotel is not  very badly damaged, except the kitchen, which, with the upper floor, is a  total ruin.  The inmates of the sleeping- rooms  saved little or nothing, in some cases  escaping with difficulty. Charles Buxton jumped from the second story and  sustained injuries which necessitated  his removal to the hospital.  Messrs. Gregg and Morrison's loss  will easily total $10,000, against which  there was a total insurance of So,000.  PAY ORE COLUMN  Holds Interesting Sessions  Here  DURING THE PAST WEEK  Many Public Questions of Great Interest Were Carefully Discussed and Disposed Of.  The rich ores of the  Providence are  not coming  to the surface  this week,  the accident tc the machinery, reported  last week,  not  ha\wig  been  fully repaired.  The force on the Dynamo has been  increased, the management being encouraged by the quality as well as the  quantity of ore found in the new shaft.  Several properties have recently  changed hands in the neighborhood of  the Skylark, due largely to the past  record and the piescnt status of that  property  NEW CHIEF OF POLICE  At a meeting of tlie full Board of  Police'Commissioners, held on Tuesday  last, the resignation of Chief of Police  Foulds was accepted, to lake effect on  Wednesday, 13th, and D. D. Dodd was  elected chief to fill such vacancy, his  duties to begin on the 13th hist. The  chief's hours of duty were fixed as  follows:  .'".':  Day duty, 3 p. in. to 6 p. in.  Night duty, y p. in. to 4 a. m.  The new chief was, bv resolution, in"  structed to enforce the law as to gambling, more particularly as relates to  professional games, and that the chief  notify every licensed hoiise.in the town  of his instructions.      .  Do Not Crowd the Season.  The first warm days of spring bring  with them a desire to get out and enjoy  the exhilerating air and sunshine.  Children that have been housed up all  winter are brought out and you wonder,  where they all came from. The heavy  winter clothing is thrown aside and  many shed their flannels. Then a cold  wave comes and people say that grip is  epidemic. Colds at this season are  ���.veil more dangerous than in midwinter, as there is much more danger  of pneumonia. Take Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy, however, and you will  have nothing, to fear. It always cure?,  and we have never known a cold to  result in pneumonia when it was used.  It is pleasant and safe to take. Children like if.    For sale by all druggists.  The Associated Boards of  Trade of Eastern British Columbia has been in convention here  during the week. Delegates were  present from Nelson, Rossland,  Cranbrook, Movie, Kaslo, Trail,  Fernie, Fort Steel and Greenwood.  President Buchanan opened the  proceedings with an address that  reviewed the progress of the  Boundary since the last meeting  of the board in Greenwoodi six  years ago. He called attention  ���;o" the fact' that in 1%0 the  Boundary mined and smelted  90,000 tons of ore, whereas last  year the output was a million and  a quarter tons. lie referred to  the development of Southern  Yale and Kootenay and instanced  in evidence thereof the great  growing demand for electric  power for the operation of mines  and smelters. So fast..was this  demand growing that the West  Kootenay Power Co. had completed at Bonnington Palls a  power plant capable of producing 41,000'horse power,- and this  power Avas being transmitted a  hundred miles, more or less, for  use in the--Bound rry. ���  Last   year's, officers   were  reelected, and are as follows:  G. O. Buchanan, president.  ���'���.": A. B. Mackenzie, secretary.  . P. A. Starkey, vice president.  A  number  of resolutions  prepared by the various  boards  had  been  submitted  to the executive  committee of the board for presentation to the convention, and such  of these as appeared to be-matters  of   public  concern   affecting the  business welfare "of the - province  were duly brought to  the   attention of the convention. ;- ...  'Among the questions discussed  and decisions readied were:  Recommendation of .aid to the  Kootenay Central raihva}-; the  right of municipalities ; to tax  railway property; a continuation  of the lead bounty; a better news  service between Great Britain and  Canada; adequate appropriation  for and . representation at the  Alaska-Yukon Exposition in l'J09;  representation at the Franco-  English Exposition of 1908; enquiry into the coal, coke and car  shortage; the acquisition of telephone lines by the province; the  betterment of land titles given  by the C.

Mr.f  Hoyt  is reported in an eastern '  paper assaying that an exhaust-' !  lve examination made at his instigation   not   long   since,   of  the  Mother Lode mine, by a mining  ,  engineer, revealed 2,000,000  tons  of ore in sight with a gioss value  of $7 per ton, on a 20-cent copper  market.     The   engineer   reports %  further that this pre can be mined,-,,  railed aud smelted at a cost~of 34  per ton. -   ~  Should the company be able to'  operate its full battery of furnaces  steadily,   the   output   would   be  050,000 tons per year, aud if the',,.  above figures are correct the com- ���  pany's   net    earnings   ought   to-'  reach somewhere near   the $2,- ��  000,000 point annually.

The attitude of the president on all-public questions could  not fail 'to be a spur and incentive  to every delegate, were other considerations lacking, to give his  most devoted effort to this espousal of the public cause.  The meeting of the convention  here, after a lapse- of years, and  contrast of the public and local  situations, now and then, lent  emphasis to'the marked progress  that is steadily but almost imperceptibly taking place in the  country. Large hope in the future  is thus inspired and encouragement afforded in what at times  appears a hopeless task of town  and country up-building.

And   so  popular   has  the idea become that an army of  people., -from   seven  to   seventy  .ears of   age,   are  on  that  day  ���msv^with^basket^-bQX-^andJpjir-  ow, with wagon and truck, with  ake  and  spade, tidying up and  nrrying away  from   front yard,  ack yard,   alley,   street  and va-  ant lots, the unsightly  accumulations of the winter, for  winter  is    the    great   burial    time   of  things that the rains and warmth  of spring  convert  into  agencies  disagreeable, unsightly aud pestilential.   And so these voluuteers  constitute  themselves into Board  of Health  officers  who not  onl}-  issue, but  themselves carry  out  their own instructions.    Litter is  removed from the  town, rubbish  from the back yard, tin cans from  the   alleys     ashes    from    their  dumps.    These arc things  hc'.p-  ful in winning  for  Spokane  the  " fast growing reputation of being  the cleanest city in the west. But  the home grounds do not confine  the  willing  workers.    They  iu-  vade the nearby vacant lot which  thoughtless ones make the graveyard  of things they don't want  around   the   home,   andclean   it  cast-off   overalls.  cleared of decrepit wagons, and  discarded poles, would improve  the appearance of things generally. Scores of shacks, long  since unfit for human tenancy,  might be taken down or burned,  and the town's good looks be  thereby improved. Who of us  has taste sufficient to "set out a  dozen trees this spring? Who of  us the energy to repair a broken  walk or fence? Time was when  we dreamed of Boundary boulevard as a thing of beauty, when  we were sorry the townsite company didn't provide for a small  lake,, and recreation ground on  the flat close in.  But the trouble with much of  the west is that so many don't  know they will remain, and in  that thought let go the home-instinct of back-east, where a man's  first consideration was his home.  It ought not be left entirely to  municipal or provincial authorities to take cognizance of accumulated refuse, at once distasteful  and "disease-breeding, nor should  their efforts in removal of such  be  left   unsupplemented  by   the  A-friend of.this paper, in a  veryr kind, gentlemanly way, criticizes the editor's habit of using  the word "attorney" instead of  "barrister." He claims the form?  er expression belongs entirely to  the United States, and is properly unknown in legal circles  here. He may be right, and we  may have used the term unadvisedly, but if so, reform should  not begin with our humble selves,  I but with the head of the law's  administration in the Province,  who is styled attorney geneeal.  Will some one invoke that gentleman to cut it out, and hereafter  dub himself "Solicitor. General,"  It Cured Her Boy of Painful Sores.  Nothing- is more unpleasant to the  eye and more painful to the sufferer  than boils and ulcers. At this period  of the year many adults suffer acutely  from these painful outbreaks. When  boils, ulcers, etc., occur on children it  is pitiful to see the little ones snffer.  Mrs. E. Holmes of 30 Guise street,  Hamilton, is grateful for -what Zam-  Buk did for her little boy when in this  pitiful plight. She says: "I" wish to  express my gratitude for the benefit my  child received from your famous Zam-  Buk Balm. He suffered from spring  eruptions and then boils broke out on  his neck. I tried blood purifying  remedies, salves and ointments of al  kinds, but nothing- seemed to do him  the desired good. The boils got worse  and became so loathsome and unsightly  that I could not send him to school, as  some of the boils.and ulcers could not  conveniently be covered. About this  time a sample box of Zam-Buk was  given to him and we tried it. The  small sample did him a liltle good, so I  bought a 50 cent box. The result was  really amazing. Inside a week's time  the boils had begun to dry up, and in a  very short time Indeed every one of  them was healed.*'  Zam-Buk is a sure cure also for  eczema, scalp sores, ringworm, poisoned  wounds, chronic ulcers, chapped hands,  cuts, cold sores, cracks, festering sores,  eruptions and pustules due to blood  poison, etc. It stops bleeding and  cures piles, fistula, etc. Is antiseptic;  an excellent "first aid."

SEED TESTING  LABORATORY  THE WEST  FOR  One of   the   best  appointed  working-men's  Hotel     .  ��� n     ' in tlie city.  I HI Iff II  crreat body of the peb  EDITORIAL NOTES  The recent elections in Manitoba resulted in a return to power  of the Roblin government, but  by a. reduced majority.  The new  province of Saskatchewan has started off right and,  versh  ris to provide a provincial uni-  ershv and its endowment.  The jury disagreed in the celebrated Steve Adams case. The  immense cost of the trial, leads  many to think the case will not  come up again.  In seeking to take  from hotels  the privilege of selling spirituous  liquors and give the entire sale to  saloons, the Dominion Alliauce is  reversing its former position on  the subject.  The new seed testing station established by the Dominion department of  agriculture at Calgary for the conven-  i :nce of the farmers and seed mer-  chanis of Alberta and British Columbia is now fully equipped and in opera  tion.  Seed will be tested al this laooratory  for   purity   and   germination.   The  purity test shows the amount of weed  seeds or other impurities contained in  a sample, and the names and quantities  of each kind.    When a farmer is buying seed or if using his   own, it is important  that he ascertain whether or  not it is free from noxious  weed seeds.  The germination   test   shows  what  percentage of the seed will  germinate  under favorable field conditions. Many  conditions affect   the   vitality of seed  such as   unfavorable weather,  immaturity, freezing before harvesting, lack  of proper storage or old age.    Appearances are   deceiving   and  often   very  "good=looking^seed=is4ow^iri_y.it3llty.=!=^-  A report of the result of each -sample  sent in for purity test will be forwarded  within a couple o: days  from  tl.e date  it is received at ihe office.  The time required for final germination test of wheat, oats, barley and  clovers is ten days, timothy, rye grass,  etc , fourteen days, vegetables ten to  fourteen days, A preliminary report  will, if requested, be forwarded within  four to six days from tlie date of receipt  of sample.  Samples should be securely  wrapped  in strong paper or enclosed iu  cotton  j bag, and should contain  not   less than  one ounce of grass  seeds  of all   kinds  or white or alsike clovers,  two  ounces  red clover, alfalfa or other seeds of like  size, and three ounces or a small handful of wheat, o.its and barley  or other  large   seeds.    The   rate of postage is  one cent per ounce and should be pre-  , paid.      All   testing   is   done   f;ec  of  ' charge.

This  time he expects to produce carloads of  pure silver from the  base cobalt, and  perhaps later will attempt to make gold  from cobalt.    It   is a long  time since  the last of these geniuses played his  gold  brick  game.    Modern  chemistry  denies the possibility of changing an  inferior   metal,   into   a   precious   one.  Twentieth century  alchemists,   awake  to the opportunity   to  mint  real  gold  from the   investments  of  their stock  companies,   are   not   sensitive to the  criticisms of  their   predecessors   who  really did  work hard, though unsuccessfully,   to   transmute    quicksilver,  antimony, lead or silver into gold.

Campbell, the young and  brilliant divine who succeeded Dr.  Parker in City Temple, London, has  been disturbing orthodoxy recently by  some of his religious views.

Dr. Oronhyatekha, a protege of King  Edward, when Prince of Wales, and  by his bounty educated at Oxford, died  recently at Savannah. The Dr., once  a Mohawk chief, was a man of gift  and.power, and throuch his energy the  Independent Ordcrof Foresters became  a leading beneficiary institution in  Canada.  Gen.

'���  of doubt." That is what Fred Ron-  kendorf, who has been at Conrad for  nearly a year, says of the country. He  continued: "The Venu, the Vault, the  Big Thing and the Dalton properties  are all rich and all of them, will make  mines of great value. .They have been  developed to a point where that is assured. About the middle of January  the men while working on the Venus  struck an ore body 40 feet wide in the  lower tunnel, and is richer than anyone  ever hoped to find it. This is the vein  that was looked for last fall and the  failure to reach which for a long time  made some men skeptical as to the final  outcome of the property's development.  Ore is being sacked on the Venus now  for shipment below. It will be hauled  to Caribou and sent over the railroad.  This will go on the remainder of the  winter and next summer. That the  Big Thing is rich is evidenced by the  fact that some men who know what it  contains tried to get a lay on it recently  and were refused. They were willing  to expend their own money and take  chances ��� on the results. The more  work that is done on the Vault the better it looks. It is a splendid property.  The Toochi and Whcaton river countries are prospecting well,' also, and  conservative mining men believe they  will both develop into producing mining districts. The boys who arc working in the Wheaton country have been  pursuing a stringer which was only  two inches.wide at the surface. It is  now two feet wide. They, arc 'making  a shipment of ore outside and it will  yield $100 to the ton."  The average temperature of Ihe  Yukon mining district, from December  to March, is 16 degrees below zero.
