Late of Camp McKinney.  BLOODLESS BATTLE  C- P. R. Land Department  Doing Things.  FENCE IN THE V., V. ~& E.  Want Compensation For Lands Used  bp Riyal Company.  , A big- railway fig-lit in sight! So  thought those "denizens of the Boundary who enjoy a good fight, it matters  not whether the contestants are railway corporations or just ordinary individuals. 'On Monday night a/fence  was built across the V., V. & E. grade  byiCP. R. gang of workmen and  the bloodof the truculent ones flowed  more freely as they beheld visions oj  bloodless ; battles, . lawsuits, injunctions, quo warranto proceedings, and  and possibly one or two courts of nisi  prius or oyer and terminer, whatever  these terms may mean.  The situation bore all the ear marks  ofa good fight, to quote the language  of��the, mining [promoter. There was  W.Pearce,-assistant land commissioner  for the Canadian Pacific Railway company. There was Frederic McLaine,  his Fidus Achates in the'Boundary.  There was that 'necessary . evil, a  lawyer, in the perso 1 of .Mr. Han in g-  ton of Grand Forks, and there were  several railway navvies to complete  the goodly company.  ~ Building a fence across the grade of  a (powerful railway company like, the  Great Northern should prove as great  an incentive to battle as knocking the  traditional chip off th'e traditional  shoulder, but when Contractor/Johnston's track was thrown over the railway grade as well, it looked as if the  Kettle river would run red.  Groups could be seen in Midway, on  Tuesday seriously discussing the situation and wondering whether the C. P.  R.'was going to succeed in effectively  stopping the construction of the V.,  y. & e.  But the situation was not quite so  serious as it appeared. The C: P. R.  land department was responsible - for  all the commotion. The C. P. R.. for  some reason best known to its officers,  is not giving its land away for nothing. It wants to be paid for the land  it received from a grateful country.  Under the law the Canadian Pacific  company's land can be expropriated  for railway" purposes"as"~can the lands  of an ordinary individual, and the C.  P. R. is entitled to the same privileges  under the laws as are ordinary individuals. It has a right to protect its  lands until it is paid for what ii used  by a rival railway corporation. The  C. P. R. land department believing  that these little details were overlooked  took such steps as in the opinion of  Mr. Dennis were necessary to convince that awful man Hill that ��the  Canadian Pacific Railway company  was a landed proprietor iu the great  and glorious Boundary. So a fence  was built and Johnson's railway track  was thrown over the grade.  The above is tlie C. P. R. side of the  story, but-there is another side. It is  quite apparent that the land department is acting under instructions and  that it is a mere instrument used by  that corporation���a silly effort , to  obstruct the construction of the V.,  V. 0& E. In the first place, the  land in question may or may not belong to the C P. R. This fact is evidently apparent to the C. P. R. officials. After they succeeded in driving  sub-co j tractors off the grade with the  assistance of a provincial officer, who  was instructed to join tbe C. P. R.  forces, or was bamboozled into so  doing, urveyors were put on the  ground to definitely ascertain whether  the land belonged to the C. P. R. or  not. Possibly the C. P. R is acting en  the not unreasonable assumption that  everything in this province, the  heavens above and the waters beneath,  is the property of that corporation.  In connection with this difficulty it  is quite evident that there is an offensive and defensive alliance between  the C. P. R. and the  McBride govern  ment Lawyer Hanington's henchman  was the provincial constable at Midway, who. without warrant, exercised  his authority to interfere with subcontractors who'were peaceably endeavoring to protect their interests.  No explanation can be offered for such  an unwarrantable interference on the  part of the officers of the provincial  government, except that the C. P. R.^  is carrying out a well considered plan  of action to obstruct so long as they  can the construction of the V., V. &  E.,'and in carrying out this"plan it has  an understanding -with the McBride  government'.  The people of Southern Uritirfh Co-'  lumbia consider it bad enough to have  the railway facilities they want delayed by the dog-in-the-manger policy \  of the Canadian Pacific, but they indignantly protest against that company being assisted in this work of  obstruction by the officers of the provincial government.        ,  THEY GOT INSTRUCTIONS  And  Cave a License  to the Great  Northern at Midway.  Midway. Oct. 2.���The latest and  probably the last meeting of the board '  of license commissioners .for Boundary  district was held here on Friday last.  A'full board was present. The board  reconsidered its decision not to grant  any further licenses in Midway, and  B. Lequime was granted a license for  the Great Northern hotel.  Before adjourning Milton White, one ���  of the commissioners,  asked Mr. Le-  quime to state that he (White) had not  been   paid   any  money   by   him (Le-  quime) an an  inducement  to grant the '  license. Whether this was. intended  as a left-handed reflection on his  brother commissioners or was simply a  parade of virtue on'his. own  part, Mr. ,  White did not btate. ^'     ; ���,./,-''  Jas.  Dallas,"whoK-will  conduct"- the ,, <   . >   i.  Great Northern hotel, has lost nothing  by the advertising which  the peculiar  manipulations of the  licensing board ',  brought to him. The public generally  realized that, he had been unfairly  dealt with and that the board was denying the Great Northern a license because Lloyd A. Manley had built an  hotel across the street from the Great ,  Northern. Public opinion ^forced the  board to grant the license aud now  that the Great Northern has been  opened it is doing a business that will  compensate Mr. Dallas for the time  lost while the Manley grip held the  licensing board.  The Fera Perjury Case. I  After the grand jury retired to consider the case of J. Raffael, the Fernie  man charged  with  attempted murder,  the case oa-a? rank-i: era oi��� vireenwood,^ ���  -���  retrial of alleged perjury, was taken  up.    R. M.   Macdonald, .crown p*-ose- ,  cutor,  intimated a desire   to  enter  a '  nolle prosequi, but his lordship suggested that it would be more in the interest of the iprisoner that the case  should be submitted to a jury. This  course was adopted and the following  petit jury was empannelea:  John A. Hunter, foreman; J. P. Pax-  ton, D. J. Robertson, J. R. Robertson,  J. R. Dunlop, G. Horsvead, C. H. Benedict, H. Caine, J. Teague, W. Gosnel,  I. G. Nelson, H. H. Avery and C.  Jiczkowicz.  Crown Prosecutor Macdonald having  no fresh evidence to adduce, hi�� lordship directed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty, which was done, and  the prisoner immediately discharged.���  Nelson Daly News.  The acquaintances of  Frank   Fera  in Greenwood  will  be  pleased lo hear  of his acquital,  as it  was believed by  those  who have known him that there  were many  weak points in   thfe case.   j   A* Judicious Inauiry.  A well known  traveling "man   who  visits the drug trade says  he has often  heard druggists inquire of  custcmers  who   asked    for   a    cough    medicine,  whether it was wanted  for  a  child or  an adult, and if for a child th^y almost  invariably recommend  Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy.   The reason   for this  is that they know there is  no danger  from it and that it always cures. There  is not the least danger  in  giving it,  and for coughs, colds  and croup it is  unsurpassed.

Hill visited Vancouver  last week. Had he known how  seriously his presence there would  affect a certain newspaper called  the Daily Province, consideration  for the poor, misguided C.- P. R.  organ would probably have in-  influenced him in not doing those  things that harrow its patriotic  sensibilities. Apparently the  Province has a grievance against  Mr. Hill aud from a careful reading ot its lengthy editorials one  is forced to the conclusion that  the gravamen of the complaint is  found in the definite announcement by Mr. Hill that work on  the V., V. & E. is to be commenced from the Cloverdale, or  western end of the r6ad, this fall  and continuously continued easterly until connection is made with  the work which is now being  carried on West from Midway;  or possibly the indignation of the  Province of Vancouver has been  aroused by the equally definite  announcement that the terminus  of the V., V. & E. railway is to  be Vancouver, and that Mr. Hill  intends to do for Vancouver more  than had been done by any other  railway company.  The Province is filled with the  most patriotic motives and is  anxious to see the great natural  resources of the interior of British  Columbia developed, incidentally  believing that such development  will mean much for the city of  Vancouver. It holds equally  strong views regarding how this  development is to be brought  about. '��� British Columbia is a  preserve owned and controlled by  the Canadian Pacific Railway  company. Any one who invades  this preserve is a poacher and  poachers are "no account, nohow." Therefore' it follows that  Mr. Hill being ' a poacher anything he may do, any railways he  may build are a direct'menace to  the best interests of British Columbia.  There are people in British .Columbia who have the temerity to  hold views" diametrically opposed  to those which the Daily Province  of Vancouver is pleased to give  its readers from time vto time.  They believe that no railway  company has ,or should have a  grip on this province, that the  best results can be secured only  by the greatest' possible freedom  of of action in the development of  a railway policy; that no restrictions should be placed on the  construction of railways that ask  for no public .aid ; that while Hill  competition may be objectionable  to the Canadian Pacific railway  and its servile newspaper organ,  it is easily the best' for British  Columbia.       v '       "      '.-  The .editor of the Province  finished up the week's work by a  lengthy" editorial. in which he  proudly boasts that "the Province  has never ceased to ' warn the  people of Vancouver that that  was President-.Hill's object and'  his sole object in building in this  province." No doubt the people  of Vancouver ftilly appreciate the  motive' ,which prompted this  solemn warning ; no doubt that  the enterprising people of the-  what now is and is sure to continue to be the commercial metropolis of British Columbia will  show their appreciation of the  efforts oi- a Vancouver newspaper  that is at all times ready to sacrifice the best interests of Vancouver and , other parts of the  province to the interests of the  Canadian Pacific railway.'  Some good friend of the C. P.  R.'should advise one of its officials to muzzle its, Vancouver  organ. The doleful whinings of  the~"Daily" Province ^convey the  impression that Canada's national  highway is so weak that it is unable to stand competition. Such  a suggestion is a libel on the Canadian Pacific and its worst  friend could not heap greater  ridicule on the' management of  this railway than is done by the  silly twaddle which appears from  time to time in the editorial  columns of the Vancouver Daily  Province.        ' '  .whether the manipulations of a  Grand Forks gang are to be cou-  tinued in this district or not.  It is unfortunate 'that those interested in an honest and decent  administration of the liquor  license law should should not  have seen Premier McBride last.  He is so lamentably weak that he  always succumbs to the latest influence which is brought to bear  upon him. His decision to rescue  the Greenwood riding from the  hands of the gang evaporated as  soon as Fraser et al protested.   '  Possibly the attorney-general  may have more backbone than  his chief. We again callhis attention to the license now held  by Lloyd A. Manley for an hotel  in Myers creek canyon. 'This  license was granted in- direct  violation of the Liquor License  law. The hotel cannot in any  way be intended as a public convenience, because the site is not  .even near a public road. It is intended as a whiskey joint, where  men .employed in the heavy rock  work in the canyon, can conveniently get drunk and menace  the safety of their own lives and  those of others. "Under no circumstance should the license be  allowed to continue. If the attorney-general is anxious to secure'  a confirmation of these facts he  might consult Superintendent  Hussey who has investigated the  case..

It is stated that the Fraser-  Manley pull on the McBride government was too strong and that  no board of license commissioners  will be appointed for the Greenwood district. As a sop to public opinion Manley graciously  consented to allow the board of  license commissioners to grant a  license to the Great Northern  hotel at Midway, and it is felt by  the ring that this ought to satisfy  the people and that a new board  of license commissioners is not at  all necessary. The public generally are but'little concerned in  the Great Northern hotel, Midway, but they have an interest in  the proper administration of the  law. -The people of Greenwood  care little whether" the Great  Northern hotel, Midway, has a  license   or ' not,    but    do    care  One of the neatest advertising  booklets published this year has  reached the Times from Armstrong,' B. C. It tells about  Armstrong and vicinity, which it  succinctly    describes    as  The  Land of Opportunity and the Big  Red Apple." The booklet is well  illustrated with views of the  splendid farms in that section of  the country and a large amount  of interesting information is  given. With a combination of  enterprising people advertising  their district and .a district that  is easily the garden of the province, Armstrong is sure to grow.  .Hugh Aiken of the Nanaimo  Herald has entered the journalistic field in the Kootenay.

/ VOL. 11, NO. 5, OCT. 6, 1905  THE WASTE DUMP.  Antimony le^d is used in the manufacture of" an excellent quality of  chilled shot.  With the solid concrete, the reinforced concrete and the block method  of construction, there is no form of  building which may not be economi.  cally constructed of cement.  Tin miriinp: is carried on in a desultory way in Lower Burma, in a district 200 miles long by, 40 wide. Tin  oceurs there in place and in alluvial  deposits. The natives work these deposits about one-half the year and produce a concentrate sunning- about 70  , per cent tin. It is reported that systematic operations should be exceedingly profitable.  Asphaltum iB a term  rather loosely  used in commerce for any or all of the  varieties   of  hydrocarbon compounds  which the mineralogist knows as as-  asphaltum   proper,   wurtzilite,   alber-  tite, grahamite, uintaite, ^ilsonite, etc.  , The petroleum of. California yields, on  1 destructive distillation, a residue which  ' so closely resembles asphalt that it is  called "oil asphaltvm."  | The theory af construction in cone  drum hoisting engines is that , as the  weight of the rope in the shaft in-  . croases'lhe radius at which it acts correspondingly decreases, tnereby equalizing: the work of the engine. Naturally ouch construction must be calculated for each particular case, and  such>drums would not fulfill the purpose of their design if used under circumstances other than those for which  '   they were intended.  Wolfram is of a black-pr deep brownish black color and has a lustre some-  ��� what resembling black glass, but with  a metallic or sub metallic tinge., In  breaking it usually cleaves ' along flat,  shining surfaces, very much like antimony, and in this respect is very different from chonchodical fracture of  broken glass. . Where exposed on the  surface this cleavage is not, always  present. On handling,the mineral one  is impressed with its specific gravity,  it being heavier than iron.  The use of a tail rope is necessitated  when hoisting operations are conducted with two cages in a double com-  ^ partment shaft, according to the Whiting system.    This tail  rope  is  of  the  ', same size and weight per foot as the  hoisting rope.   It is fastened  to the  ', bottoms of each cage and,  at the bot-  , torn of the shaft, runs -under a sheave.  'The hoisting rope is thus-counterbalanced, and each skip exactly bal-<  ances the other. The load on the  engine, therefore, is the exact weight  of the material hoisted and is the same  - at all points in the shaft, which would  not otherwise be the case.  One of the most effective means for  disposing of the culm and refuse from  breakers a: coal mines was hit upon a  number of years ago in the vicinity of  . Wilkesbarre, Pennsylvania. The  scheme resulted f rem the necessity of  providing a suitable receptacle for^the  dustTladen wash water, which the  companies were prohibited from turning into the rivers. The experiment  of running this into the old workings  ' was so successful that the plan was  adopted of flushing the culm and other  waste into worked out chambers,, where  it formed a compact and satisfactory  filling. As the water drained away .to  lower parts of the mine it was again  pumped to the surface and used.  Antimony is a white, very brittle  metal, of laminated and crystalline  texture. It fuses at a low tempera tvre  and readily" vaporizes. It is not used  in the pure state, but formr several  valuable alloys and compounds. The  most important alloys of aneimony are  tyye metal, britanuia, pewter and  anti-friction metals. The type metal  consists essentially of lead and anti-  monp, often with small quantities of  tin and nickle or copper. Britannia is  a white metal alloy of antimony with  tin, copper aud bismuth, and is much  used for table ware. Pewter is a similar alloy, but it contains a smaller  percentage of antimony than britan-  nia. There are several anti-friction  alloys which usually go under the name  of babbitt metals. One of these consists of 50 parts of tin to 5 of antimony  and o.ie of bismuth, but other propor  tions are in use. The addition of antimony to lead hardens it, and the addition of a small quantity of bismuth  gives the alloy the property of expanding at the moment of solidification from a molten state, thus producing a perfect cast from a mold.  Fuller's earth is chiefly employed  abroad for fulling wopl, but in America  it is used mainl3' for deodorizing,  bleaching and clarifying fats, oils and  greases. For the purpose of clarifying lard and cotton seed oil a small  quantity, 2Jto three per cent of fuller's  earth is ground to a gneness of 100 to  120 mesh, and is added to the hot oil.  After a thorough agitation the hot  liquid is passed through a filter press  and when the earth and coloring impurities have been removed the oil is  nearly white. It is understood that  fuller's earth has almost superseded  bone black in this process. A small  quantity of fuller's dearth is also marketed in powedered form, specially  specially prepared for removing  grease spots. It might also be used to  advantage in removing calcium carbonate from water used for boiler supplies and thus prevent deleterious in-  cruotations on the inside of boilers.  The United States geological survey  has on hand the investigation of curious phenomena known as blowing or  breathing wells. In the course of ool-  lecting well records the hydrologists of  the survey have ��� observed many wells  that emit currents of air with more or  less force, sometimes accompanied by  a whistling sound which'can be hear,d  for a long distance. The beft known-  examples of this type of weli are found  throughout the etate of Nebraska.  Blowing wells are also found in southern Louisiana. The force of the air  current in one sf the Louisiana wells is  sufficient to keep a man's hat suspended above it. The cause of sauch  phenomena is mainly due to changes  in atmospheric pressure or changes in  temperature. During the progress of  a low barometer storm over those regions the air is expelled from the  blowing wells. With a i ising barometer the blowing becomes rapidly less  until the current is' finally reversed.  Differences in the temperature of the  surface aia and the air in the soil also  l  produce similar effects. When the interstices between the 'grains of sand,  gravel, etc.. in which the well is deiven  are filled with water, the phenomena  of blowinS is much less noticeable.  Some Seasonable Advice.  It may be a piece of superfluous advice to urge people at this season of  the year to lay in a supply of Chamberlain^ Cough" Remedy. It is almost  sure to be needed before winter is  over, and much more prompt and satisfactory results are obtained when  taken as soon as a cold is contracted  and before it has become settled in the  system, which can only be done by  keeping-the remedy at hand. This  rsmedy is so widely known.- and so altogether good that no one should hesitate about buying it in preference to  any other,   For sale by all druggists.

The old California Stage company  ran a line of stages from Sacramento  to Maryville, Nevada City, Downie-  ville, Stockton, Jackson, Moklumne  hill and other towns in the mining regions of California. They first ran in  1849 and continued for some time  thereafter. The capitalization of this  stage line was a matter cf curiosity, it  being $1,000,000, but it was never  known how much was paid in.

An interesting. and rather unexpected geological feature of the placer  region Nof the Seward peninsula,  Alaska, is that despite its arctic situation it shows no evidence of past gla-  ciatioq.  The gold appears not to have been  borne from great distance by ice or  water, but to be of local origin. Moreover, it is not derived, like that of  many gold placers, from prominent  quartz fissure gold-bearing veins in  the district, but rather from a general  and widely diffused distribution of  gold in the country rock schists as well  as in small quartz stringerB in the  schists. There are few quartz veins  in the district of sufficient size and importance to be worked for gold.  The discovery of prehistoric mammalian remains in the surface gravels  is not uncommon. The remains are  found on all the larger streams; they  are UBually contained in the muck  overlying the gravels, and are eqposed  by the cutting of streams and the caving of banks. In jsome cases the animals were mired "in bogs where" now  found; in others they were washed to  their present location. Large tusks  and-teeth are on exhibition at some of  the camps. The remains are principally those of mammoth .and musk ox.  The region near Kotsebue Sound  offers few attractions other than gold  to'+he prospector. Low, moss-covered  hills, natural breeding places.for mosquitoes jand black flies, traveling difficult, and fuel only low willows >  The region is damp in summer and  Yery cold in winter. The geology consists mostly of contorted schists and  limestones, which may be of Devonian  age, mingled with recent lava flows  ond older eruptive' rocks. Inferionlig-  nitc coal of Tertiary age occurs locally.  The best thabcan be said of it is that  it is superior to wood for cooking purposes. A hindrance to its use is that  when found it is frozen "solid and on  thawing slacks freely.  The^vaoiety and abundance of wild  flowers in the ev.rly part of the season  is surprising to, one accustomed to  think of Alaska only as a cold, barren  waste, covered with snaw and swept by  atctic winds.���Mining Reporter.,  ^4>4*4*^4��4'4*4'4*4>4*'l?^4,4>4t4*4*4��<l*4<4*4*^3g  4��  4��  4��  4��  THE-^  LIMITED.
