VISITED THE GOLD MINES  Providence and Strathmore Cause Surprise.���Mother Lode and the  Smelter Inspected,  Members of the Canadian Society of  Civil Engineers to the number of about  forty, visited Greeuwood last Saturday  and spent the limited time available in  visiting-the mines and smelter. Some  of them 'were accompanied by their  wives and daughters, and the party  numbered in all over fifty. The special  train bearing1 the party arrived about  4:30 and was met by a committee of  citizens and the city council -with carriages, and in a few minutes parties  were on their way to visit the Providence and Strathmore mines, while the  remainder of the party, accompanied  by local citizens, went up by train to  the Mother Lode mine. The ^omen  showed equal interest in the trips and  accompanied the men to the mines, going down the shafts and exploring.the  tunnelf with courageous and energetic  interest. '  The high grade mines attracted considerable attention, and had there been  more conveyances provided more members of the party would have visited  them. Those who visited the Strathmore and Providence were surprised at  the richness of the ore aud the extent  or the work being carried on.  . The,party that went up to the Mother  l^cYe' werti" "mm h impressed with; the  "glory holes" and with the vast extent  of the underground workings. When  they stood at one point on the 6C foot  lever and looked far along to a glimmering light, and were told that they  were standing midway between the  extreme sides of the ore body, and that  its total width equalled 250 feet thev  were amazed, and asked if the deposit  cauld ever be exhausted. They were  still further surprised when they learned that its known length -was much  greater, arid there was still a vast area  to be explored. Lack of time prevented a visit to the 400-foot level, but  the visitors had seen sufficient to realize that the copper deposits of Greenwood are prsdically unlimited an  likely to last for generations.  "^Off'th^^turh^trip'th^tfaih^stbpped1  at the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter and a  number of men visited the works, while  the women remained in the car. Being  late in the evening, and growing dark,  it was impossible to get the best view  of the plant, but those who visited it  wer-: enabled to learn  much   about the  Grand  e  linnery upening  Friday and Saturday  Nothing appeals more to women than Millinery.

They inquired minutely into  the system employed to '���educe the ore,  and how the matte is handled. J. E.  McAllister and F. Keffer, representing I  the company, carefully explained the  details of the operations involved, and  the visitors were much surprised at the  completeness of the plant and to learn  that its capacity is being increased  three-fold.  Before returning to the city all the  members of the party were entertained  at the home of Mr. and Mrs. McAllister, and then conducted to the Imperial  hotel, joining those who had visited  the Providence and Strathmore mines.  It had been the purpose of the committee in charge to take a number of cthe  visitors to the Dominion Copper Co.'s  smelter at Boundary Falls, but on account of the delayed arrival of the  train, this important trip had to be  abandoned.  THE BA.NOUET.  At the Imperial hotel covers were  laid for seventy-two guests and the capacity of the. hotel was taxed to its  utmost, every available space being  occupied. The committee in charge of  the arrangements would have gladly  entertained a much larger number of  local business men, but under the circumstances it was impossiole to do so.  Every available foot of space in the  dining1 room proper was 'utilized, and  the spacious rotunda was also pressed  into service. ���-.���-..  TOAST list.  The toast list was in charge of W. G.  Gauttce,' and was made as lengthy as  time would permit. The healths of  the king and of the president oi the  United States were drank amid cheers,  G. H. Frost of New York, editor.of the  Engineering News, replying to the  latter.  , Acting Mayor Bunting 'welcomed the  visitors and Col. H. U. Ruttan,, city  engineer for Winnipeg, replied. The  Colonel spoke briefly of the object of  the society and th'e work it was accomplishing. To many of the members of  the party it was their first visit to  British Columbia; they were all amazed  at the vast natural resources to be seen  oti all sides, and charmed by the glories  of the scenery. He thought-; the magnificent province of'B. C. had been  aptly described by one"of the partv  who had remarked that it was "fifty  Switzerlands rolled into one," It was  indeed a marvelous country of boundless possibilities.        -   '   ;  o   GREENWOOD PRAISE rf  J. B. Porter, professor of mining in  McGill college, Montreal, also speaking on behalf of the society, thanked  the people of Greenwood for their kindness in showing the members of the  party ^the���mines^anda-smelter.^w-hioh-  were of so much interest. The party  were also further impressed with the  kind hospitaiity being showered upon  them. This was the first banquet that  had been tendered them, and while he  would not detract from the good intentions of other B. C, towns, yet the  manner in which they had been received in Greenwood had added emphatic  ally to the enjoyment of their trip, and  would ,be always remembered as a  splendid example of western hospitality.  COI'PKK MINING.  F. Keffer, consulting engineer for  the B. C. Copper Co., replied to the  toast of "The Copper Mines." Here-  viewed the difficulties that had attended the development of the copper industry of Greeuwood, of how, in 18%,  when work was first started, they were  seventy-five miles from a railway and  there were little in the district but the  hills, the forests and���Mr. Wood, the  pioneer of Greenwood. (Laughter.)  He told of the struggles successfully  overcome when copper was ai low ebb  and a drug on the market. But times  had changed. They had learned how  to produce copper at a minimum cost,  and the difficulties of the problem had  been reduced to those of engineering,  and he announced amid applause that  copper could be mined ��� and smelted  cheaper in Greenwood than anywhere  else on earth.  GOLD MINING.  Alex Miller spoke of the gold and  silver mines, pointing out that the  more-gold and silver taken from the  earth the more wealth is added to the  people as a whole. He deplored the  lack of knowledge and interest displayed by the people of the east in the  Continued on last page  WORKING THE E. P, U.  Another Gold Mine Starts  Operations.  EASTERN   MAN   INVESTS  Mr, Ross of Engineer's Party Takes a  Share.- Mine Has Yielded $4-0;-  000 .���A Promising Property.*  It takes more than fine talk to make  a mining camp, and words without acts -  are of but little practical value in the  development of a mine, and while.the  civil engineers who visited Greenwood  hist Saturday had plenty of nice things  tosay.it is gratifying to know that  at least one of them demonstrated his  faith in what ho saw ano heard by. investing some money, in one of the high  grade mines. George Ross of Welland,  Ontario, even in the short time he was  in the city, took occasion to inquire  after mining investment, with the result that he bought a share in the E.  P. Q, now being worked under the- direction of a local syndicate. It took  only a few minutes to convince Mr.  Ross that it was a splendid opportunity  to make an investment that might  easily yield handsome returns and he  drew his check for the required amount.  The E. P. TJ. property, known as the  E Pluribus Unum, adjoins the Gold  Finch and Bay mines aud has recently  come under the control of- a -.local'-'syndicate, of which H. Bunting is president. At the last meeting a board of  directors, including Martin . McKale  'and William Lawson, was appointed  and R. D. McAllister;appointed secretary treasurer. Four men were started  to work on Wednesday, the necessary  surveys hatting been completed last  Monday. There is now on the property  a 190-foot shaft besides several hundred  feet of tunneling. The mine is equipped  with a shaft house, blacksmith shop,  25 h. p boiler, 7x10 inch Jencke's hoist,  electric f.'.ns and a five-drill electric  compressor.  As a result of the work previously  done there has been 722.. tons of ore  shipped. This, was treated in the  Greenwood and Trail smelters, and averaged a net value yf SS0 to ��60 per  ton, giving aggregate returns of some  $40,000. The E. P. U. is considered  one of the promising gold-silver mines  of Greenwood, and it is confidently  expected that more' extensive development" will^prdduce-Miighly ^satisfactory -  results.  MIDWAY & VERNON  Final Settlement Postponed Till Next  Meeting, October 10th.  When Ralph Smailes left recently  for Victoria, it was for the purpose of  attending a meeting of those interested in the Midway & Vernon railway. It was expected that the reports  of the engineers representing the eastern capitalists, who are taking hold of  the deal, would be presented and that  last Tuesday would see the long delayed transaction finally settled. The  meeting, however, has been postponed  till October 10ih. and the public will  have ii couple of weeks longer to speculate on the results. The delay has  been caused by the desire of the eastern men to attend in person, it having-  been impossible for them to be present  at this week's meeting.  Those familiar with all the circumstances take this to be a most favorable  sign. It is argued that if the men who  are negotiating for the purchase of the  charter are going to be present at the  October meeting they must surely have  made up their minds to close the deal  and build the road, otherwise they  would have no object in being present.  In Haleburton county, near Peters  boio, Out., a discovery of silver was  recently made on the land of a farmer  named McKniff, who bought the land  from the .government 20 years ago and  has b'.'en farming it ever since. A  wet-iv or .so ago an American prospector  made the discovery that the property  was rich, and samples sent to Toronto  j were found to contain a large percent-  1 age of silver. .    , NDARY"' GREEK TIMES,  JiMary Creek Times  Issued ��wery Friday  11Y THE  'Boundary Creek Piiuting aud Publishing  Co.,Limiti;i),  'Duncan Ross .'.President  H.  0.

T.here are few employ-?  ing.yellow labor who would do  so if white labor, were available.  Practically all the cooks iu private.-. ;houses are.. Ghinamen, and  ���some of the hotels, employ. them  also.. Iu defence of this it cannot be argued that Chinamen are  employed because they are cheaper, but in almost every individual  case'it is because they are the  only help that can be secured. It  would'be"better for the city and  for the country as whole if white  labor were more plentiful and it  were possible to dispense with the  yellow entirely.  In addition to those who are  obliged to' encourage Chinese labor in their, homes and in their  places of business, there are many  who are contributing to the  strengthening of yellow labor by  continuously^atroniziug the Chinese^ .laundries.. ���-.; If-.::Green.wood  had to depend upon the dipapi-  dated,' ill-smelling,* unsanitary  Chinese laundry there would be  some excuse, but it has .not.   .

Business men of Phoenix have  formed a company and are about  to open a modern laundry. Civic  pride and business co-operation  are one of the features of life in  the upper town and it is safe to  say that the Greenwood laundry  will suffer the loss of a large  amount ^f, .trade. The lecal  laundry ,will put up a strong  'fight; but the- odds are against  :;it,;and if it is to continue in business,' daily contributing to the  wealth of the city, it is necessary  that it receive the patronage of  the business men and citizens of  Greenwood.  BANK OF B. N.  A. REPORT  In another column will be found  the annual report of the Bank of  British North America. It will  be noted that a six per cent dividend has been declared and that  ;��37,S61 have been carried forward as a reserve fund. This is  to provide for the San Francisco  losses. The loss to the bank in  property was slight but their employees lost heavily, and the  bank has deeided to reimburse  their staff for losses sustained.  This action is one worthy of the  highest commendation. The last  dividend was declared in April of  this year and $14fj,000 were distributed. The net profit for the  first six months equalled $300,-  570:  The bank is in a most prosper  ous condition and its report reflects the prosperous condition of  Canada.  The Dominion Trades and Labor Council has launched a new  party to be knoAvn as the Cana-  dian Labor party. Canadian politics will soon be cut up.into as  many factious as English politics  are, if the people are not very  careful, and instead of having a  powerful governiug party with a  strong opposition, the strength  of the nation will be diffused over  a number of weak sections, none  of which will be strong enough  to properly "rule the country or  command the respect of other  nations.  The Americau goA'ernnient has  decided to send seven thousand  marines and bluejackets to Cuba.  It locks as if Theodore Roosevelt,  after driving out the Spaniards,  will now have to turn around aud  lick the Cubans themselves.  The mail train lias been late  four days iu succession this week  and the district conservative organs will be blaming it all on the  Laurier srovernmeut.

Great improvements have been made  to the Greenwood post office this week.  A number of postal boxes have been  built and will be rented at reasonable  figures. Those who avail themselves  of this change will be relieved of the  necessity of a weary wait for their  mail.  Work commenced Thursday on the  new school opposite the hospital. The  structure will be 22x35, story and a  hall, and will be lathed and plastered  throughout. The upper rooms will be  filled up for housekeeping. A. 1$. Hart  has the contract.  It is expected thai a new wagon road  will be completed from Greenwood City  through Skylark, Greenwood and Wellington camps.  F. B.

(By A. Harry Hook, Assayer.)  BISMUTH.  The metal bismuth is used only to a  limited extent. Its minerals occur  sparingly, and on this account the price  of the metal remains high. At present  it is worth $1.40 a pound. It has remarkable properties in that, when alloyed with-other metals, it gives the  resulting alloy a lower' melting, point.  An alloy composed of 4 parts bismuth,  1 part cadmixtn. 1 part tin and 2 parts  lead, fuses at 1S8 degrees Fahrenheit,  which means that boiling water will  easily melt it. This alloy is used on  automatic fire sprinklers for soldering  up the water vents.  This metal is very brittle, and may  be easily pulverized. It fuses at 267  degrees c.  Bismuth, antimony and molybdenum  minerals are worth the prospector's  observation, as when found in workable quantities they demand a good  price.    '  Native bismuth is very brittle. It  has a metallic luster and its color is  silver-white, with a reddish hue, subject to tarnish. It has perfect cleavage.  It readily dissolves in nitric acid, which  on dilution with water causes a white  precipitate. In occurs in veins in  gneiss and other crystalline rocks and  clay slate, accompanying various ores  of silver, cobalt, lead and zinc. It is  found principally in Germany, also in  Utah and Bolivia.  Bismuth glance or bismuthenite contains &y�� per cent of bismuth. It has  a metallic luster with a leadrgray color,  inclining to tin white, with a yellowish  or irridescent tarnish, It is soluble in  hot nitric acid and a white precipitate  falls on diluting with water. This  mineral ts found principally in Cora-  wall, Saxony, Bolivia and Queensland.  The following table gives the ore shipments of the Botindary  1904,1905 and 1906, as reported to the Boundary Creek Times:  OF INTEREST TO MINERS  Facts and Figures Regarding the Mining Industry,  The cornerstone of the Montreal  Refining and Reduction works, at  Trout Lake, two miles north of the  town of'North Bay, was laid last week.  The plant will cost ab^ut $2,000,000,  employ about 1,000 men and have a capacity of 500 tons of ore per day.  Refractory ores are those that are  not free milling, their gold refusing to  alloy with mercury in the mortar or on  the plates. Ores containing sulphides,  telluiides, arsenides, selenium, etc.,  are refractory.  The silver production of Mexico 33  years ago, in .1872 3, was 14,472,768  ounces. Ten years later, in 1881-2, it  grew to 19,737,372 ounces, and in 1861-2  the output totaled 30,882,780 ounces.  Thus in 20 years the silver production  has more than doobled.  A mineral vein of nickel has been  discovered in the southwest part of the  city of Ottawa. Experts at the Geological Survey have seen and examined  the ore and say it contains the metal.  Some time a,go C. R. Johnston obtained  an option on the property for $6,000,  intending to resell it for building lots.  The ore is nickel with a small percentage of copper.  A MODEL MIMNG TOWN  An obscure news item that was current last week announced that the three  large companies operating at Garfield  Beach, Utah, had combined their energies and were organizing a company to  build and maintain a model town for  their employes, The Boston Consolidated Mining company, the Utah Copper company and the American Smelting and Refining company will employ  a force of men sufficient to make, with  their families, a settlement of several  thousand inhabitants and the step to  conserve their health and happiness is  in line with the latest sociological  progress.  Like many commendable movements,  the idea of creating and maintaining a  model town- will not necessarily be a  charitable act on the part of the companies, and underneath all of the sentiment which may surround such a step,  we know that it is almost certain to  prove as financially profitable as it is  morally commendable. The project is  prima facie��� evidence of the fact that  the laborer* is of first importance in  large commercial undeitakings, and  that whatever conduces to his physical  and moral welfare will be to the financial advantage of his employers. In  plain business parlance, the project  will pay in dollars and cents as well as  in improved social conditions for the  men.  To* scheme is not new. Large corporations in the east have for some  time provedrthe expediency of caring  for their employes in this way.

The Court of Directors submits the accompanying balance Sheet to the  30th June last. '        ���  The profits for the half year, including ^7,252 8s. I0d., brought forward  from last account, amount to ��69,013 20s. 9d., out of which the Directors have  now to report the declaration of an Interium Dividend of 30s per Share, payable, free of income tax, on the 5th October next, being at the rate of 6 per  cent per annum, leaving a balance of ��37,861 Is. 6d. to be carried forward.  This unusually large sum has been carried forward to lite new account  owing to the uncertainty which still exists respecting the consequence of the  disaster which overwhelmed the City of San Francisco by earthquake and fire  in April last. The Bank has incurred no direct loss from litis cause beyond  the small sum, not yet ascertained, which will be payable to the members of  the staff as. compensation for the destruction and damage of their personal  effects, for the premises occupied by the Bank were leasehold and the Bank is  free from any responsibility for their restoration. Moreover, owing to the  prompt and courageous action of the agents and their staff, all money and  securities, were at considerable personal risk removed from tlie vaults before  the fire reached them, and conveyed to a place of safety. It is, however, impossible until a final settlement has been arrived at between the Insurance  Offices and the Insured to ascertain exactlythe financial position of the sufferers, and it has, therefore, been considered prudent to carry this stun forward to  meet possible indirect losses.  The Dividend Warrants will be remitted to the Proprietors on the 4th October next.  The sum of ��5,514 7s. 6d. has been transferred from the profits of the half  year to the credit of the Bank's investment in Consols, which will in future  stand at'85. .    '��� >.

One of the most sensational mineral  finds in Algoma was recently made  near th.i Bruce mines, and upon property that until recently belonged to the  Bruce Mines company. On August 7,  1906. Dr. Campbell and Britton Duke,  miners from British Columbia, bought  from the Bruce Mints company forty  acres, lying about three and a half  miles northeast of the Bruce Mines  They immediately commenced prospecting and uncovered u large vein,  which they have stripped for over 500  feet. The vein shows copper ore in  place for 18 feet, the ore carrying born-  ite and copper sulphides.  The eruptive formation in which the  vein is located is over 100 feet wide  between diorite walls. Whether' the  entire width is mineralized remains to  be determined, operations having been  confined to stripping that oart of the  formation which shows mineral in  place. The vein has been uncovered  in places across the property, and there  is no doubt about its width, its length  and richness. The location has been  visited by.,many mining men. The  copper showings of this district pronounced this to be'one of the best and  richest finds of copper ever made in  Algoma.  THE BLIND PHRENOLOGIST  Prof. B. S.

Welcome,  brother! May yout hair never grow  less, and your shadow ever increase.  May your path be strewn with roses,  ranuncula and the beautiful palm,  symbol of victory. Never run foul of  the fogies and the toadies, a cad suits  them better. Be calm in controversy;  dumb before the critics who krtow  more about the proper conduct of a  newspaper than you can ever hope to  know; the knocker awaits you iu ambush, pity chim rather than heed. Be  patient. And the beckoning angels  will sweep you through the/gate always  ajar for a conscientious journalist.  Tbe empty chair is waiting for you,  brother, fill it well and your reward���  ahrthat-is-an^inconspicuous^thing^in  this cold, clammy world."  THE COPPER MARKET  Boston, Sept. 27.���The Commercial says: "The copper market continues strong with domestic prices  steady at the highest level so far  reached. Lake is 19j�� to \ty% cents  and electrolytic is 19 cents per pound.  The recent buying movement was very  general. Consumers as a rule supplied  their probr.ble requirements for the remainder of this year and more or less  copper was also purchased for January  delivery. As a result, the domestic  market is quiet at the moment. There  seems to be a steady increase, in the  volume of business, Ihowevcr, and it is  probable that there will be a considerable demand for spot copper throughout the remainder of the year. Supplies of cash copper tin vo been entirely  exhausted and a sudden increase in demand would probably result in quotations of 19,'il to 20 cents per pound.  The foreign market -'for copper is exceedingly strong."  WAS A VERY SICK BOY.

The company  expect to be ready to place the land on  the market by October 1st, and it will  be sold through the manager.  Negotiations have been opened with  the local government for the building  of a bridge below Rock Creek, probably near Larson's hotel, and Mr.  Wright states that the government has  promised to erect one.  MIDWAY MEWS  Pain from a Burn Promptly Relieved by  Chamberlain's Pain Balm.  A little child of Michael Strauss, of  Vernon, Conn., was recently in great  pain from a burn on the hand, and as  cold applications only increased the  inflammation, Mr. Strauss came to Mir.  James N. Nichols, a local merchant,  for something to stop the pain. Mr.  Nichols says: "I advised him to use  Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and the first  application drew out the inflammation  and gave immediate relief. I have used  this liniment myself and recommend it  very of ten for cuts, burns, strains and  lame back, and have never known it to  disappoint."    For sale by all druggists.

Luke Greevy of Williamsport, Pa.,  who has been out here the past two  months devoting his attention to his  mining interests in the neighborhood  of Camp McKinney, took the G. N.  train Wednesday morning for the east.  He is fully alive to the crying need for  more railways, and stated his willingness to give the Midway & Vernon  railway people not only all the timber  they want in his neighborhood, but he  would also give them his sawmill to cut  up the timber. If we had a few more  men like Mr. Greevy, things would  hum in this province. He will return  again in the spring.  E. C. Moe of the 13, T bank, is at  present away on a well earned six  weeks' vacation in the east.  It is stated that the time of arrival  of the G.

White & Co. 4-5  progress and possibilities of the west  To visit the mines of B. C. was highly  educative to anyone, and to the people  of the east especially. Such visits  should be ��� encouraged, and he hoped  when the distinguished members of an  honored profession returned to their  homes they would remember what they  had seen and tell others of the riches  of the Boundary.  IDEA-I, SMKI.TING.  C. H. Mitchell, of the engineers,  spoke to the effect that; Canada (C.)  stood for "counige," British Columbia  (B. C), "best courage," and he was  delighted to note that in the Boundary  district were to be seen the best examples of "best courage." He had  inquired into the reducing of ores and  he had come to the conclusion that the  Boundary had the ideal smelting  proposition of British Columbia. Mr.  Mitchell is engineer to the Ontario  Power Co. at Niagara Falls.  J. E. McAllister, speaking for the  smelting industry, gave an idea of the  amount of ore that would be reduced  during the next year, when he said it  would fill a trench one foot square and  nine miles long. Copper, he said, was  the banner mineral for the engineer,  its uses were being continually multiplies and its value in the commercial  world had at last been recognized. He  asked that the visitors remember what  they had seen and heard, and tell  others about it.  UNLIMITED POWER.  C. B. Smith, chairman of the Ontario Hydro-Electric commission, spoke  on the' question of power. He congratulated Greenwood oa the cheapness of its power. He had heard of  the Boundary as a low grade camp,  but he had become convinced that, so  far as power was concerned, it was  striptly high grade. In the streams,  cascades and cataracts he seen unlimited possibilities for the- production of  electrical energy, but he hoped that  when he should be privileged to revisit  Greenwood that he would find a commercial activity so vigorous that the  capacity for power production would  be taxed to the utmost.  E. G. Warren of the Greenwood  Electric Co., replied, giving a brief  review of the power history of the  Boundary; pointing out, among other  things, that the stage had been reached  where power was not sold, but given  away, so low were the rates. He also  pointed out that while Greenwood had  once been at the mercy of the copper  market, it had now reaceed a position  where it could thrive and prosper upon  the products of its i gold and silver  mines.  W. G. Gaunce closed the toast list  with an appeal to the visitors to try to  secure protection for the products of  Canadian mines, itistead nf being  forced to compete in the open markets  of the world.  It was'about 10 o'clock when the proceedings finally closed and everyone  present felt that the event had been a  thorough���success.��-=The���visitors���were,  unsparingin their praise of the people  of Greenwood, and they were repeatedly surprised with the evidences of  vast mineral wealth and the air of  general progress aud prosperity. They  carried away with them the kindest remembrances of their visit, and a fund  of information that will prove valuable  alike to themselves and to  Greenwood.  The ladies of the party were especially grateful for the kind manner in  which they had been received and entertained by the ladies of the city. A  number of local ladies accompanied  the fair visitors to the mines, and prior  to the banquet Mrs. McAllister and  Mrs. Keffer entertained t'.tem at the  former's home.
