HOME FROM NORTH  George Findlay Has Rough  Experience.  BOAT NEARLY WRECKED  After a Summer In the Bullcley Valley  Veteran Prospector Peturns With  Fine Mineral Samples.  CK��>>'IK"X*<~HK^K">'MMX~>4M^^^  George Findlay, who went up to the  Bulkley Valley last spring'in company  with several other Greenwood people,  arrived home last Monday. He spent  much of his time in che Babine  country, where he staked some claims  that promise, to become valuable properties. He brought back some specimens of galena and grey copper as  proofs of the mineral wealth of the  north. Describing his journey to the  Nelson News, Mr. Findlay said he  went iu via the Skeena river to Hazel-  ton and through the Bulkley valley to  Aldermere, at the junction of the  .Bulkley and Telkwa valleys.  "I saw Col. Topping's property on  the south fork of the Telkwa river,  and it's all that has been said of it. It's  without doubt one of the biggest copper  propositions'in the country and should  make the founder of Trail a tidy fortune. Yes, I examined some of Harry  Houson's showings and he has picked  some splendid ones. 'Jim' Divole,  formerly of Fort Steele, has located  three galena claims and I located one  in the Babine range. The Babine  rauge is 30 miles east of Aldermere,  but there are no trails and one has to  tramp haphazard across'country."  Mr. Findlay says that Aldermere is  already a thriving 'center, having a  sawmill, postoffice, two hotels, an assay  office, two general stores and the mining recorder's office for the district.  There was an incident in connection  with the mining recorder's office that  he related worth repeating. In the  spring, at the time- of the Indian  troubles, the minitig recorder, who is  also provincial constable, was sent out  to make an arrest. During hi3 absence, a .rancher by the name of F. C.  Heale, pulled the wires at Victoria and  got the appointment. He came to town,  took all the books from the office to his  ranch. This iiecesssitated the prospector comiug in from the hills to  record his location, making an addi-  [ tional journey of four miles around the  lake^to^get^to^Healeis.^^TJie^bi^iness^  interests requested Heale to keep the  office in Aldermere open, but this he  refused, consequently a public meeting  was called, the facts telegraphed to  Premier McBride and justice was  speedily done ths little community by  a peremptory order to restore the books  rXtCZ  ELL <& GO.  tanfields  Truro Knit  Is The Best  Underwear For Women  rwear  Believing that Stanfields Unshrinkable  Truro Knit Underwear for women to be  the best on the market to-d<Ty, we have  ' put in a large stock of this popular line.

"Besides its mineral wealth, Ihe  Bulkley valley produces splendid  cereals and roots, and at Hazelton  I saw several fruit trees that yielded  large crops, The oat crop was particularly good and near Aldermere the  two Norris boys, formerly of Midway,  have started a farm. Other settlers  are Peter White, John W. Gray, Mr.  LeCroix, Pat Regan, J. Lashbrook and  'Old Man' Thompson, who are doing  well. They all raised grain and had  big crops of vegetables. There are  several other thriving farming settlements, including one up in Pleasant  yalley, some 3.0 miles south of Aider-  mere."  While on his way down the Skeena  river, on the steamer Hazelton, Mr.  Findley came near suffering shipwreck  but in spite of a narrow escape became  off safely.  The breaking of a steel cable, used  in warping the Skeena river steamer  Hazelton through Kitsalas canyon on  her trip down stream from Hazelton,  placed the vessel at the mercy of the  swirling waters of the narrow passage  for a short time.  The canyon at the upper entrance is  divided into two channels by a. rocky  island. The smaller channel keeps  much the same direction as the stream  before striking the canyon, while the  main channel, which is used by the  steamers, swings sharpiy to the right,  boiling in foam against the obstructing  island. On the upper side of this sharp  turn is a sand spit running into the  river.  As the turn in the river is too sharp  for the boats to round it unaided, a  breast line is carried ashore on the  sand spit and made fast, and then the  vessel is swung around the point into  the eddy, where the line is cast off, and  the vessel drifts broadside on through  the remainder of the canyon, rounding  the sharp turns by going ahead or  astern a few turns of, the stern paddle  wheel, to keer her clear of the shore.  When the accident happened, however, the line ashore at the sand spit  gave way, and the current flung the  Hazelton unprepared into the canyon,  where she got a few bumps, but the  quick action of her officers saved her  from sustaining any serious damage,  and she was able to proceed upthe river  again as soon as she had unloaded at  Essington;'   '  Rainy weather, and the consequent  rising of the water in "the Skeena, has  prolonged the navigation on that river  this season. Although the river,steamers have been able to operate longer  than usual, they have not been able to  carry to Hazelton all the freight offering at Port Essingtou, much of which  consists of supplies -for Grand  Trunk  Pacific survey parties.  THE   BIGGEST   FURNACE  New  Machinery on the Ground   at  Boundary Falls.  The Dominion Copper Co. has received three carloads of machinery for  the new furnace at the smelter. Other  supplies are now coming in rapidly and  the works are taking on an exceedingly  busy appearance, installing apparatus.  When completed the new furnace will  be the largest in British Columbia, if  not in Canada, being n little bigger  than the new ones at the B. C smelter  here.  A carload of compressor machinery  ha*> been received at Phoenix for the  mines (here, and will be installed at  once.  THE COPPER MARKET  New York, Oct. 25.���The copper  market is excited and prii.es continue  to show an advancing tendency. Lake  and electrolytic may now be quoted at  21J�� c;nts to 23 cents per pound. Sales  of round lots have been made at 22  cents, and, reports say, at 22^ and 23  cents also. The leading selling agencies and the largest producing interests  are advising consumers to retrain, as  long as possible, from makir.g further  purchases. Buyers have been bidding  prices up against themselves, and producers, having no coppet for nearby  delivery, have been unable to stop the  advance. One of the largest selling  interests says that his concern could  not contract to deliver more than 200,-  000 poundsof electrolytic copper during  the remainder of this year.  1,300 TONS PER DAY  Capacity of Two of the B. C.  Furnaces.  STARTING FURNACE NO. 2  Second Furnace Will Be Started in a  Few Days.   Company's Mines  Are All Shipping.  Preparations are under way for the  blowing in of No. 2 furnace at the B.  C. smelter early next week, probably  Sunday. The finishing touches are  being put on the furnace and the settler  is being put into shape to receive the  molten ore. With the one furnace  runriing an average of about 650 tons  of ore are being reduced daily. The  starting of the second furnace will, of  course, double the output, and make it  at least 1,300 tons daily. If the management desired to force the furnaces  to their full capacity the daily output  could be increased to 1,500 tons. It has  been found more profitable, however,  to run the furnaces at a moderate output, thus economizing in fuel and reducing the necessity for repairs.  FURNACE no. 3.  A soon as the second furnace has  been blown in furnace No. 3 will be  put into shape and made ready for  starting. Mr. McAllister expects the  third furnace will be started in about  two weeks. The capacity of the smelter  will then be 2,000 tons daily. After  No. 3 furnace has been started No. 1  will be closed down until the Anaconda  substation is prepared to supply more  power.   " "-".'" ��'' ���'"'     '"V-^-'-���''���'������'  MINES  AM, SHIPPING.  Shipments of ore are now being received from - all the company's mines.  The Mother Lode is, gradually increasing the output to meetthe requirements  of the smelter, and the Emma. Oro  Denoro and B. C. mine are all adding  their share. The two latter just started  this week. During the summer months,  while the new furnaces were being installed, these mines all underwent a  vigorous period of development. Deep-  ei levels were reached, drifts opened  up and tunnels were driven, so that  they are now in a condition to supply  ore in much larger quantities than ever  before, and when the smelter is in  shape to treat 2;000 tons per dayJthe  mines will be ready to furnish the ore.  In many ways the new smelter is a  ,big,irtlprovelnent_oA^ellMurvpMJP9e^_The_  method of handling the ore-in much  quicker and ch-^ap-r. Under the old  system, hand carts were used toconvey  the ore from the bins to the furnaces.  These were filled at the bins and  wheeled to the feed floor, where they  were dumped, and men shoveled the  ore into the furnaces. Under the new,  arrangements large cars are propelled  by electricity in trains of three or more  transport the ore from the bins and  dump directly into the furnaces. A  train of three cars may be operated by  one man, and will convey many tons of  ore at one trip.  THE  KLUE  DUST.  ���ln the saving of the Hue dust highly  economical arrangements have been  made. Instead of workmen having to  take hand cars under the Hue and  gather the dast up with shovels and  convey it to the briquette making machine, much of this can now be done  by force.of gravity and by the use of  electric power. The floor of the new  fiuc, upon which Ihe <lust now settles,  slopes rapidly to the side wall. The  wall is punctured at regular intervals  with small doors, which, when opened,  allows the dust tn fall into cars below,  by which it is conveyed to the briquette  machine. This arrangement greatly  reduces the cos; of handling the flue  dust, as oue mr.n with a train of cars  can easily manage it  COPPER SCARCE  A recent New York dispatch says that  there is no spot  copper on  hand.    All  the copper producing companies are  sold out and contracts now being made  run well into January, and in some instances beyond It is expected the  price of electrolytic copper will advance  2 cents per pound within the next sixty  days. ,y.^^��-^ja��3ai��att*srfaaiBs  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  ~ ��� ������ --������ -    ��� ���*-���   ������-' '   i   ���  J, R   BROWN,  BARRISTER AND SOLICITOR  Tel. 92.

I  1  ENGL3SH CAPITAL ATTRACTED  ANNOUNCEMENT.  Commencing November 1st, James  "W. Ellis takes charge of the business  of the Boundary Creek Printing &  .Publishing Co. Mr. Ellis has been  identified with the Times for a number  of years, both as a printer at the case  and foreman of the composing room  and job department. A skilled workman, industrious and energetic, we  confidently expect that in the new position he will be able to increase the  "bTisihess=bf"thIe-:iTimes^=i==Mrri=Ellis-i=is  authorized to collect all accounts and  make all payments on behalf of the  Boundary Creek Printing & Publishing- Co. -':  THE MCBRIDE FIASCO.  The Mail and Empire supports Mr.  McBride's extraordinary conduct at the  Toronto conference, and remarks that  "Sir Wilfrid Laurier set a trap for McBride which the. latter skillfully avoided  and left the conference." This declaration sounds strange, indeed, after 'he  condemnation by Premier Whitney of  Ontario, and Premier Robliu of Mani  toba, in alluding to the conduct i��f the  premier of British Columbia. The  Mail and Empire is a respectable Tory  journal and it is difficult to understand  how it can  approve of Mr.   McBride's  o  fireworks in the face of Mr.'Whitney's  disapprobation. If a trap was really  set by Sir Wilfrid, Mr. Whitney must  have sprung it, for we liiul that gentleman endorsing the government's proposition and accepting its munificence  with thanks. Mr. McBride has made  the mistake of his political life. He  tried to bully the conference, but, defeated and discredited, he retired empty  handed. -The Toronto Globe truthfully  remarks that British Columbia's public  men having wasted her heritage appealed to the Dominion for aid. The  Globe ominously adds: -"Let it be  known that the appeal has been heard  for the last time." In other words, the  ffoer of assistance -will not be repeated.  Northern British Columbia-is attracting the attention of the investing  public, not only iu Canada and the  United States, but also in the old land.  As a proof of this the information has  been received that an expert is now on  his way to the Cassiar country to report on the coal measures in the Bulk-  ley valley.  The expert who is coming represents  H. Mayhew and W. ,B. Gladstone, the  well known colliery owners of Cheshire,  England, who have been interested in  the great possibilities^ the coal trade  in northern British Columbia, when  the G. T. - P. railway opens it up to  trade and commerce  The colliery owners mentioned have  secured an option on.about fifty square  miles of these coal 'lands through the  agency of Walter Nursey, of Toronto.  The measures are known to contain  practically inexhaustible quantities of  the best quality of bituminous coal  equal at least to that of the Crow's  Nest Coal company. They are situated  on the Telkwa river, and compose a  small portion of the rich coal area existing there, being contiguous to the  valuable coal lands acquired by the  Bulkley and Telkwa Coal company two  years ago, and which includes among  its shareholders wealthy Montreal aud  Toronto investors. '  Interesting Items from the Boundary  Creek Times of 1896.  . The business men on Copper street  are clubbing tot ether to build a sidewalk the entire length of the block.  A ledge of galeun ore two feet wide  has been found trom croppings on the  Marjory, near the St. Ann, in Skylark  camp. The owners fancy they are not-  far from a line body of high grade ore.

Citizens here are  wondering'why the old bridge was torn  down before the lumber for the new  bridge was on hand.

News of the  tragedy-had been sent him in Everett  and he was naturally very much  shocked. He at-once started for Greenwood, thinking his brother was confined  here. It is three years since he last  seen his brother, and of course little  thought their next, meeting would be  under such distressing circumstances.  This is his second visit to Greenwood,  having spent a short time here in 1897.  He is employed with .be lSverett  e'ectric street railway as foreman, i>ti  construction, having held the position  for six years, -He. will remain here for  a short tune only, as'his duties require  his return as soon as possible.  Wednesday he went over to Grand  Forks and seen his brother, returning  to Greenwood Thursday. He states  that his brothet is steadily recovering  from his self inflicted wounds. The  cuts are healing up and he is now able  to speak much more clearly.  ���MrsrJJale^who^has^been^iiT" Grand-  Forks visiting her husband, also returned to Greenwood Thursday.  Ed Bishop, who has been dangerously ill with blood poisoning, is now  sufficiently recovered to be out and  around. His hand still requires considerable care.

Zam-Buk is the Thin?.  The first few months of the Canadian  fall season find many ladies with rough,  red skin on either hands or face, or  both. Delicate skins arc roughened by  the cold, and hands chap, smart and  bleed. That is where Zam-Buk comes  in so effectively. Zam-Uuk is a skin  food. It heals chaps, it smoothens  rough skin, but it doss more���it stimulates the skin, so that the roughness  does not recur. How can a woman follow her housework with sore or chapped  hands? Zam-Buk will solve ihe problem���cure the hands. Purely herbal,  Zam-Buk is nature's own balm.

A.Nelson  s  OOOOOOOOOv. ^oOO<K)OOOOOoOOO  With figures for the first nine months  of the ye-ir available, it appears that  the zinc industry in British Columbia  for 1906 is not going to come up to the  expectations of its sanguine supporters.  The failure lies neither in the demand  nor the supply, for the former is strong  and if there were not'a good reason the  latter would not be long forthcoming.  The treatment of the zinciferous minerals seem to be at the bottom of the  trouble. It is claimed that there is too  much waste and that the ore will not  stand the heavy draft made on the zinc  content in the course of milling.  An authority expresses the opinion  that the process of concentration-separation entails a loss of 20 per cent or  more. This is indeed unfortunate, but  that it is true'was amply demonstrated  in the work of the zinc commission.  Certain of the ores collected by that  body were extremely refractory and  practically nothing- could be done with  them. In the western states zinc ores  have been found quite amenable to the  customary processes. Newer processes;  are, however, arising, and it is probable that one of these contains' the  solution of the problem. They J will  require investigation and considerable  money will have to be spent by operators in testing lots'of "their- ore, but the  results will be worth the effort, and we  urge prompt action. Flotation processes especially merit investigation.  ELECTRIC POWER IN MINING  . With each recurring fall season for  the past few years there has been the  usual shortage of electric power in  mining camps, owing to the low water  in the streams. The fact displa3rsiin a  striking manner the growing popularity  of electricity as a power for mihiiig  and milling purposes. This is attested  also in other ways. It is scarcely possible to peruse a mechanical article 01  read a journal of mechanics .without  noting that by far the greater portion  of the matter relating to mining, deals  ���with the installation of electric, machinery for all purposes���hoisting,  sinking pumping, drilling and milling.  In many instances these installations  are displacing old steam plants, and 111  others they are proving the means of  placing the property on a profitable  basis. With the larger plants the  saving is most marked, while with  some of the smaller ones the difference  sometimes means the difference between.profit and loss.  Our electric generating companies  will have to increase their capacity for*  the cry for more power usually comes  at the same time that the streams are  low, in the fall of the year. This is  also a -season of great activity in mining and milling, so that the loss is  doubly felt. Just at present the places  where the shortage of power is most  felt is in Idaho and British Columbia,  and the conditions there ate going to  result in the early addition of increased  facilities for turning out more current.  REVISITED GREENWOOD  THE STOCK MARKET.  Le Roi Stockholders Show Little Inclination to Sell,  The share market was rather quiet  during the past week, so far as the  local stocks are concerned, but there  was considerable dealing in the shares  of Coeur d'Alene companies. In Spokane the amount of dealing is as large  as it was during the boom days of  1896-97. The papers fairly teem with  the advertisements of mining brokers  who have all sorts of mining shares  to sell, and the daily transactions run  into many thousands of shares.  Le Roi is about the same price it was  last week, \�� 15s. There was no buying or selling locally, although few  inquiries were made.  Le Roi Two remains about the same  as it was last week. There is no trading  in this stock locally. Those who hold  the shares are generally satisfied to  keep them as an investment.  The shares of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting company continue  strong; they are quoted at $150 asked  and $140 bid.  Granby shares are quoted in Toronto  at $14# asked aud $14J< bid.  Rambler-Cariboo is rather quiet, and  yesterday it was quoted locally al 32  cents asked and 30)4  cents bid.  Dominion Copper continues strong;  $6.25 is asked for it aud $5.75 bid.  North Star is quoted at 24 asked and  21 cents bid.

Progress and development are terms  closely identified with life in the West, In  a new country people are working daily  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis^  trict, and for the improvementof the con'  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live- Every act of daily life  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or indirectly for the inv  proyement of society generally. In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part. Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happens  ings, and becornes a welcome weekly  messenger; bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Amon?; its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising; mediucn  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and caoitatists  seeking investments. In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor,  BOUNDARY CREEK  TIMES  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do  its full and complete share in the upbuild'  ing and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary district.

Rec.-Sec  Information has just been received  that the Nelson Iron Works of Nelson,  contemplate starting a branch in either  Greenwood or Anaconda. Some time  ago representatives of the firm visited  Greenwood and looked over the ground.  It is understood they approached the  B. C. Copper Co. and the Dominion  Copper Co. to ascertain to what extent  thejr could look for support.  ��� At the present time both of the copper companies are obliged to send their  repairs to Nelson and other cities, causing much ' inconvenience and loss of  time. The mines also, and all other  industries using machinery, find it  necessary to send their work out of the  city. It is not known to what extent  the Nelson Iron Works have laid their  plans, but some steps have been taken  toward the selection of a suitable site  and the plans for the building are expected to arrive in a few days. <  The people of Greenwood would naturally prefer to have the new industry  located in Greenwood, but the proximity of Anaconda to the B. C. smelter  and to the Boundary Falls smelter may  lead the company to select a site in  Anaconda.  '...    WBERAL, SUPPORT.  Speaking with W. C. Thomas of the  Boundary Falls smelter, this morning,  a representative of the Times learned  that the Dominion Copper Co. has  promised the Nelson Iron Works their  liberal support if they would locate  within a convenient distance of their  smelter. He did not think a site had  been chosen yet, and he intimated that  should the iron company experience  any difficulty in securing a suitable  one iti Greenwood- or������ Anaconda, his  company had lots.of land lying idle at  Boundary Falls, where a foundry could  be built without difficulty, and they  wouldn't mind donating a site for the.  purpose.  COMPI.ETE IN SIXTY DAYS.'   '  Mr. Thomas stated the iron company,  men had visited him a few days ago  and he had promised them .support.  They had promised to proceed at once  with their enterprise and assured Mr.  Thomas that the foundry would be  completed and ready for work in sixty  days, or, in other words, by January  1st, at least.  GREENWOOD OR ANACONDA?  Speaking with Mr. McAllister of the  B. C. Copper Co., it was learned that  that company had also promised the  new industry its liberal support. He  is-naturally^interested-in^having-the  foundry conveniently located to his  smelter, but said his company had no  land they could offer for such purpose.  He pointed out that the works would  have to be located close to the railway,  or where a spur could be built for the  handling of. pig iron and machinery.  He did. not know if a site had been selected or not, and declined to express  his opinion whether the foundry would  be built in Greenwood or Anaconda.  W. J. Nelson has received encouraging news from his mine, the Rambler,  West Fork. For some time work has  been prosecuted in a tunnel, expecting  to strike the ore. The other day the  miners broke into the foot wall, and as  the rock is much softer and full of iron  it is fully expected that the ore will be  encounter.-'d in from ten to twelve feet.  In previous work done on the Rambler a shaft was sunk 85 feet nearly all  the way in ore. Then a tunnel was  started from the hillside below to tap  the shaft. This entails opening some  304 feet, of which 100 feet has been ac  complished with the success noted  abov;, When the tunnel has been  driven its full length it will have  reached a depth of 145 feet at the shaft.  The work of raising to tap the shaft  will then be commenced and shipments  resumed. At the present time the men  are building a trail to the road so that  the ore can oe taken out easily when  the snow falls.  ftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftftft si;  *  ty  ty  ty  :��� tytyty ft��-��ft��ftftft��ft��ft������#��  ���'   ft  "ft  an's        I  SOMETHING NEW  You cannot over hone on this  SATISFACTION  GUARANTEED.  | Small size, 2 in. wide by 3>l/�� in.  long,  price......

Work is being continued on the  mine under contract.  The Strathmore mine shipped a car  load of ore last week. Ten men are  now at work and ore is being taken out  steadily.  The Crescent is looking extremely  well. , Assays of ore taken out this  week have run over 5374 per ton.  The management at the Elkhoru  mine expect to strike ore shortly. A  drift is being run at the 300-foot level,  and 100 feet of this has been opened  up. According to calculations, the ore  should be reached at 125 feet. Should  the expectations be realized, drifts will  be started and stoping commenced. As  ore is being taken out at the 140-foot  level shipments will probably be resumed in the near future.

KEREMEOS BY FEBRUARY  WALLACE MINING CO.  Pat Welch Says Track Will Reach Keremeos by Midwinter.- Hard Road  Across Hope Mountains.  If present calculations are carried  out. Molson will have a reg-ular freight  and passenger train service by November 1, The steel is now at Molson and  the ballasting crew was expected to  reach there by Thursday. The road  will be at once turned over to the operating department and a service inaugurated immediately. The telegraph  line reached Molson last week, and the  depot and water tan.k are now in course  of construction. (  The track laying crew have been  busy laying tracks on the Molson station grounds, including the main line,  four sidings and the Y. The' track his  now reached Sidley's place, and good  progress is. being made.- iThe work-  between Molson and Oroville will bo  mostly down hill. Between the two  places there is a descent of 2,800 feet.  It would naturally be supposed that  this could be accomplished with greater  speed, but those in charge are of the  opinion that it will be slower and more  dangerous. There is plenty of material on hand and it is expected the  work will be pushed through without  any serious delays. A daily train is  being run from the materials yards at  Midway to Molson, supplying the track  machine with rails and ties. The track  is expected to reach Oroville on November 15th.  AT KEREMEOS.  "Work is proceeding on the V., V. &  E. grade at Keremeos," says the Hedley Gazette, "where good progress is  being made. The steam shovel spent  last week cutting its way along the  river bank from the east side of the  gravel bench to the west side, and is  now cutting the bank on the grade from  the west side and using the dirt to level  up the station grounds.  "Last week James H. Kennedy, chief  engineer of the V., V. & B., accom  pan'ied by C. E. Hogeland,- chief engineer of the Great Northern system,  paid Kerenu-qs a visit and inspected  the work in progress. While here they  met A. E. Baldwin, engineer in charge  of the survey party operating beyond  Princeton, who had been sent for. It  is generally understood that Mr. Baldwin submitted data to them which  would enable them to determine  ���whether the route to be followed west  of Princeton would be that by way of  Otter valley and the Coquihalla or the  southern route by the South Fork of  i"the=SimilkameenIiand--=eedar^Plat.="Iti  was also stated that while here it was  decided to put in a Y, i^hjeh has encouraged the conclusion that Keremeos  will be a terminal point, for short time  at least."  A HAKI) WKCE OF WORK.  Speaking iu Nelson of V., V. & E.  work, Pat Welch said:  "The track layers will reach Keremeos early iu February, and the steel  is in to Molson. All the track between  that point and Keremeos is practically  built. Immediately on completion of  this section the work of moving the  construction outfits forward will be  undertaken and some tiirri in February  it is expected the Great Northern will  let the contract for the road right  through to connect with the Cloverdale-  Abbotstord section. The distance between the two points is in the neighborhood of ISO miles and embraces one  of the heaviest and most difficult pieces  of railway work in the west, including,  as it does, the passage of the Hope  range."  Mr. Welch said it would take two  years- to build the section west of  Keremeos with a force of 3,000 men,  buf he added, "once the contracts are  let the builders will go at it hammer  and tongs until the complete line is  finished from Keremes to the coast."  SMITH RECOVERING  David Smith, the surviving victim of  the Carmi tragedy, has sufficiently recovered to leave the Hospital. He-is  still under the care of the doctor and  is" doing' very well. The wound is  very laige. :ineasuring clmost seven  inches, and is painful, especially at  night. The bones in the shoulder  were shattered to some extent, and will,  therefore, require considerable time to  ���heal perfectly.'  E-iitor Frost of Engineering  News  Tells of Engineers' Trip.  Among those who visited Greenwood  with the party of Canadian civil engineers, was G. H. Frost, editor of the  Engineering News, New York, and  brother of Senator Frost of Smith's  Falls, Cnt. In his paper Mr. Frost  gives a lengthy and interesting account  of the trip, with special reference to  the Boundary, in the course of which  he says:  "The pa<-ty visited the Canadian Pacific R. R. Co.'s smelting works at  Trail; the mines at Rossland; the rich  Granny copper mines at Phoenix and  the Granby smelter at Grand Forks;  the Mother Lode of the B. C. Copper  Co. of New York, and its smelter at  (3reenwood, at which last mining town  an especially cordial reception was  given the party, concluding with a  sumptuous dinner at the Imperial hotel,  with the mayor and council as hosts.  A few short speeches were exchanged,  while the portly landlady, who evidently had a carte blanche order, uncorked Mnmni's Extra Dry with most  amusing dilligence. The dinner was  brought to a hurried close by the impatient whistle of the train engineer,  who finally rescued the visitors an hour  after schedule time and took them back  to Grand Fori<s, where arches and  illuminations and committees had been  in waiting for the party until so many-  hours after schedule time had passed  that perfect quiet and solitude only  greeted the belated visitors, as midnight saw them, tited and sleepy,  drawn in omnibuses to their hotel.  "If any nlase individual, who had  not the skill or courage to run a racing automobile on the Long Island  course, wants a few 'thrillers" to enliven his jaded senses, let him buy a  ticket over the C. P. R. to Grand Forks,  B.C., and return, taking the Grand  ForRs arid-Nelson portion by daylight;  he will probably get his money's worth  after has looked sheer down from his  car window into ab3rsses 100 to 700 feet  deep without a friendly bench to break  a possible fall."  Mr. Frost was much interested in  ;.he power possibilities of Southern  British Columbia, and says:  "A visit was made to Bonnington  Falls to examine the new power house  and machinery of the West Kootenay  Power and Eight Co., where also the  party were served with a fine dinner by  the Power Co.     :  "The Kootenay river makes a sufficient descent at Bonnington Falls to  give a net operating head of 80 feet on  the turbines. The power house is built  to accommodate four 8,000 horse power  units, of which two are now being installed. Francis vertical inward discharge turbines, with three runners on  the shaft, built by the I. P.

Messrs.  Ross & Holgate are the designing and  constructing engineers, and the works  are being built by day labor.  "The extent and richness of the mining regions traversed during the week  were a surprising revelation fo the majority of the tourists who were pi\oted  most intelligently and untiringly by  Prof. Porter, to whom, as a mining  engineer, the region was familiar.  THE ARROW LAKES.  "How many of our readers have  heard of the Arrow lakes, or the Koote  nay district of British Columbia, and  how many are familiar with the mining  development of the same region? The  writer confesses to personal ignorance  of these regions up to the time of his  recent visit thereto with the Canadian  Society of Civil Engineers. Look,  then, upon a good map of British Columbia and note "the country lying  along the great Columbia-Kootenay  river, which belongs to both the Dominion of Canada and our own United  States. It is a region of mountains,  lakes and rivers, and iu total ��� mineral  richness, already known to be great,  can only be conjectured. All day the  Canadian Pacific Railway company's  steamer, with excursionists on board,  plowed the blue waters of the Upper  and Lower Arrow lakes at the rate of  15 to 18 miles per hour during daylight  and lesser speed thereafter, to West  Robson, where a train in waiting conveyed the party to Nelson, 26 miles  further on."

SAVED THE LIFE OF COLUMBUS  When Christopher Columbus was in  Jamaica he would have died but for the  herbal medicines the natives hrought  him. There is no doubt that aboriginal  tribes know more of the medicinjl  virtue of herbs and roots than is sometimes conceded. When Captain Cook  discovered Australia he was amazed by  the fn-edom from disease which the  natives enjoyed, in consequence of  using certain roots and herbs as medicines. It was in this country that the  herbal remedy Bil> ans was first produced. Their use spread as their value  was made more known, till today all  over the globe Biieans are a household  remedy.  Miss E. Reed, of Kingston (Ont.),  says: -'I suffered terribly with acute  indigestion all last: winter. Pain followed all food, with wind spasms, rifting, etc. My sleep at night was fitful  and broken and my strength failed.  Bileans were introduced tome, and I  found relief from their use within a  very short time. They have now cured  me." Bileans cures constipation without causing griping, cure piles, biliousness, indigestion, sick headache, etc.,  and gives strength and energy to rundown systems.
