On the death of  J. G. Haynes, ia iSSS, his estate  consisting of 22,000 acres of land,  extending- 27 miles up from the  International Boundary line  through the Southern Okanagan,  was placed -in the hands of the  B.C. Land and investment Co.  for administration. In 1895, the  estate including 3,300 head of cattle and 500 horses were sold. 0.  F. Coster ton, of Veruon,    at:  the  time made an affidavit that, the  real estate was worth but $65,000.  The cattle were sold at $13 a head;  The evidence brought out here  was given by a number of the  oldest and best known residents of  the section who testified as to valuation of "the laud and cattle.  The counsel sought to show that  uo attempt was made to advertise  the place, that not even the intimate neighbors had any notice  that the place was to be sold, aud  that both land and cattle were  greatly undervalued. J. A. Macdonald, of Rossland, appeared for  the. Estate ; E. V. Bod well , of  Victoria, for the defendants. The  case was adjourned to be taken up  again at Victoria, on a date de-  "teYmiriedliy'counsel.' "'"'""   R. G. Sidley, who has been .23  'years in the country and knew  both the property and Mr.Haynes  when" alive, valued the cattle at.  at least, $20 a head and the land  at $S an acre.  R. B." Kerr, of Midway, had  beenlong a butcher in the country.  He had never bought cattle in  bunches for less than $20' a liead  If the beef cattle had been sold  separately, they alone would have  realized as much as all the cattle  did as the}- were sold.  Henry Nicholson, of camp McKinney, has been here since 1865.  He had been a government Assessor for 7 years, under Judge Haynes. He valued the land at $10  au acre and cattle at $20 a head.  The ranch was assessed on the  basis of a two-third valuation at  $114,000.  ���B---A-.-carmichael-- of-P-airviewr  valued the land at, at the very  least, $7.50 an acre and cattle at  $20 a head.  C. de Bois Greeu, P.L.S., of  Pairview, surveyor in the Okanagan since lS-)2, said the place  was well worth $12 an acre.  E. Bullock-Webster, Pentictc-u,  had owned a ranch at  Keremeos.  He came here in '86 and in 'SShad  heard an offer made to Mr.   Haynes of $180,000.    This  offer was  refused, as Mr.'Hayues   held i.he  property at $200,000.    It was one  of the finest ranches in the country for stock raising.  0 Mrs. Kruger, for many years tbe  wife of the custom's officer at Osoyoos, and an intimate neighbor-  of the Haynes family,   said   that  Sheriff Pemberton was "in a very  delapidated state and in a  condition of inebriety" at  the  time of  the sale.    She  and  her  husband  did not know of the sale until the  sheriff came' the   night   before.  Deputy-Sheriff had told her  that  the cattle   had   been   previously  sold to Tom Ellis.    Capt. Krug-er  went over to purchase cattle   but  none were put up.  J. R. Jackson, of Midway, valued the land at $7 an acre and  cattle at 320.  W. J. Schoonoyer, of Fairview,  formerly manager of  the   estate,  put the number of   cattle on the  ; estate in his time at  3,300.    The  The Supreme Court opened its  sessions on Tuesday morning at  11 o'clock before Mr. Justice Clement in the Court House. The  grand jury chosen, was composed  of the following citi;;-3ns :  H. F.

Your -Lordship :  The grand jury;desire, to extend  to you a cordial welcome and to  congratulate you upon, the paucity  of criminal offenses to be dealt  with at tiiis session of tlie court.  We desire to point out to you  that the recommendation of the  grand jury of 23rd May, 1907, with  regard to the dangerous railroad  crossing of the highway at Boundary Falls has not yet:' been acted  upon, and we beg to again recommend that it be rectified without  loss of ti me, as we consider the  said crossing to be a constant  .menace to the lives of the traveling public. : ���,'."���  We desire topoint but that it is  important that a speedy decision  be given by the executive of the  provincial government with regard  to the rights of the Columbia and  Western Sail way company, who  claim surface rights on mineral  claims located prior to 1901, and  who are now leasing- and selling  timber on some of said mineral  claims.  We inspected the school and  found it well conducted, but would  recommend that a new heating  plant' be installed to-avoid any  possible.danger from .fire,; that the  building be painted as soon as possible, and that a"fi;ig pole be erected  and a flag supplied, so that the  spirit of loyalty may be firmly  planted in the breasts of the rising  generation.  . We would again recommend that  the city authorities install a fire,  hydrant near the hospital, so that  fuller fire protection may be afforded.  We found, the courthouse and  jail scrupulously clean and in excellent  condition,   and  we  would  recommend that a fence be erected  around the grounds.  We would like to draw the attention of the proper authorities  to the fact that the dairies in the  district are not systematically iu-  spect-nl.  ,  We iga.in beg to draw the atten-  Sally and   Duncan   Maki.i-?

Gaunce who returned  on Tuesday from a two week's  visit on the West Fork in an interview on the district ^poke substantially as follows:���  "There appears lo b*v���''  going on along the V  than usual. Of course tins can  be accounted for on many grounds.  Many who have held mineral  laims in the d-n.n-i becoming  discouraged by delay in the matter  of railway construction or compelled to go elsewhere to work  for wages have abandoned their  claims and gone to other camps.  Asa resultmany promisingclaims  on which much work has been  done have been abandoned. Some  of .these are being re-staked.  Then again quite a number of  claims have been crown granted  or are ready for crown grant and  development thereon has been  suspended.  In Wallace  Mountain   a  strict  look 'lit   is   bciusr   kept   for any  ' iiii- .1  avail?,;.-le    ground   and   quite   a  numbi. ��� of new stakes hnve  been  recently set on the mountain.  The Sally and Duncan are the  only two properties on this hill on  which anything like activity is  seen, and on both these the working force is small, numbering only 7 or 8 men on each. Both  these properties provide their own  treasury out of development work,  and a car of ore is being now  shipped from each claim. ��� A car  now being freighted from the  Sally is expected to net the  owners $5,000. Of course to ship  only the ore that will thus pay  means to leave lots of cheaper ore  in the ore bins, and as a result the  Sally today must .have $50,000  worth oLore on-the ground that  would pay handsomely with railway transportation or with a concentrator. But the Sally is slowly making good with no treasury  At the Crescent Mine word has I THE GREAT NORTHERN  been received from the head office  in New York to push ahead the  work."

The Plaintiff pays  the costs. It looks like a  win -for the citv.  tion of the proper authorities to  the fact that the government officials and provincial police officers  in the district are inadequately remunerated for their valuable services.

The charge against Le 'Blanc  wa.�� that with intent to defraud,  he diu concur in making- a fali-e  entry in the time book of the V.  .V. & ii. Railway and ^Navigation  Company for tho month ol September, 1906. The name of Joseph  Sitar,it was claimed, had been entered as an employee ot that railway at Phoenix when nut working  there.   .  Joseph LeBlanc was  assistant  roadmaster for some 19   sections  of the G.N. rail\vay,iiicluding all  of the railway's lines   in Canada.  The foreman of sec. 4'; was a Slav  Joseph   Mabock,    who   was   the  chief witness for the Crown.   Mabock had been previously held on  the charge   of  obtaining  money  by cashing a pay-check made  out  in the name of Jo?: ph Sitar, who  had never worked on the line. On  Wednesday, Mabock swore   that  LeBlanc had arranged with Tildie  LeBlanc, foreman of sec. 50, wh >  was   his   nephew,   to  put  false  names on the   books   and   afterwards had arranged with  him   to  Au S inch-pipe line, 150 feet  long, is being run from Boundary  Creek near theC,P,R. bridge to  the reservoir on the hill above the  Smelter, and a Byron-Jackson 2  stage Turbine pump with a capacity of 500 gal lous a minute i-v  being installed near the bridge  This wiil also be. operated' by a.  50 li-p- C-W-motor. The reservoir  holds 160,000 U S- gallons-   ������>  There was a very light-snowfall  and the cattle had good winter  protection.  R. H. Parkinson, P.L.S., of  Fairview, said there was about  600 acres of meadow land on which  hay was actually cut. 2,000 other  acres could easily be turned into  hay meadows.  The.main.witness   was  Frank  Richter, of Keremeos,   who   was  severely cross-examined   by   Mr.  Bodwell.   He had been in the valley 42 �� years. He knew the estate  well and considered it a   valuable  property. He would have thought  it a splendid bargain, if   it could  be purchased at 56 an acre.    The  market for cattle in ")S was good.  The Kootenay country   took   ail  the cattle they   could   raise   and  there was very little   expense   to  them in driving them   over   the  Dewdney trail.    He   valued   the  but what it creates   itself   under  all this handicap.  The Duncan and Bounty Fraction are looking well, never so  well.

Most of the present ore is being  taken from the Bounty.  The shaft on this property is  sunk on the line between the two  claims to the advantage of both.  But the Bounty is so situated that  it.could be cheaply deve'oped by  a tunnel, and pay from the gra?s  roots.  At Carmi   everything   is;stagnant awaiting decision regarding  Midway   and   Vernon.    In   fact  everything along the yalley   appears to hinge on the railway and  if this road is not to be constructed it would be   both   justice  and  mercy   to   ever3*body   along  the  river to let them know  the   fact,  and at  the   same time let  them  and the country at large know on  whom rests the responsibility for  delaying the development of what  must sooner or later  become  one  of the richest   and most populous  sections of the province."

That after getting the money he  turned it all over to LeBlanc on  the understanding that he was to  return half of it to him. Nabok  claimed to. have stayed at Le  Blanc's house in Grand Forks on  the night preceding this deal,  and that LeBlanc had followed  him to. Plioenix and had paid him  $10. When the Great Northern  began to investigate the matter,  he said that LeBlanc had offered  him $60 to get out of the country  and had actually paid him So lo  get to Republic.

As usual "Bob "  makes some very terse statements  but the offence of tbe gentleman  is onlv that just previous to a  municipal election he has raised  the cry of making-Calgary a clean  city. The editor's ire is up and  his sarcasm would be bitter where  not Alderman Samis a good living  man. Apparently in Calgary the  streets are not used for a saw-mill  and the wood, left some on the  one side and some oh the other  side of the street ior a. weeir. The  Calgary colonel does admit that  the cry might fit Pumpkin Centre,  B.C.,but surely that is not Greenwood. "Tis time to enforce the  By-laws and clean the streets of  cord wood piles.

It   means   to us the  same as the regulation of our fat  hers and mothers.    And out here  as in the older parts, it is the first  sign that strikes a stranger, of a  well-regulated community���a city  of homes where   the   sentiments  encouraged   are   those that will  give to the couutry a  spirit   that  shall maintain it through fair and  rough weather, through financial  prosperity and commercial depression.  Not ali the customs of the older  countries are found convenient in  the new. It seems that the curfew is and that somewhere is a  deep desire that tbe children shall  grow to be citizens worthy the  name���men and women who realize the privilege of conforming  their own wishes to the best good  of the community.  Let us not be afraid of the  touch of "entiinent that will help  to make the children intelligent  and worthy citizens.  Clean Up ihe Streets.  "The Rossland Miner" sent out  its last daily issue on Tuesday of  this week. The editor is plainly  discouraged in the endeavor to  maintain a newspaper without  the support of the business men  of the city. He will make a careful canvass of the community and  if"siimcient'support"for"a^weekly-  paper is forthcoming, will continue in that way. Meanwhile he  makes the following desperate  offer : -      ���  "If there is in Rossland, any  individual, company, or faction  that will undertake the publicat-  } ion of a newspaper they will find  a complete plant at the Miner  office, which can be had on almost  any reasonable terms."  On Saturday last Alex. Robinson picked on the North Fork of  the Kettle River, about 15 miles  from Greenwood, a box of large,  luscious strawberries. With strawberries in late October and pan-  sies and sweet peas blooming iu  the gardens well on into November, what may we not expect in the  way of bountiful harvest iu the  Boundary country ? In many an  eastern town or city people would  find it hard to believe that such  things as are commonplaces here  could be found anywhere north of  the 49th paralell at this season.  The future of British Columbia  will not find here simply a mining  country, although her minerals  will always make her famous the  world over. In an agricultural  way, the next ten or twenty years  will see great development right  in the Boundary section. In the  "Sunset" of Saturday last, the  Editor says what he thinks British Columbia has to offer to the  homeseeker, in the following  words that we may do well to remind our eastern friends are not  fulsome or visionary, 'but a statement of hard fact.  "In no country in the vrorld is there  such a combination of inducements for  rural population aa we have in British  Columbia and of none perhaps ia less  knswn. We have valleys which  with population canbe m-ide to blossom  like a garden. The rich warm soil will  produce all the cereals aud fruits of the  temperate zone and some of them the  hardier varietie* of aub-tropical nuts  and fruits. Those who aee the splendid  arrays of fruit and nuts at the Westminster Fair miy jret a faint idex of  the capabilities of his province. In the  Okanagan we have seen in the last few  years vastly profitable orchards of apples, peaches' arid'"'plums" developed  We have other valleys in which these  fruits, with peanuts, olives, apricots,  and -other sub-tropical products have  been successfully grown!

In this  way 5,000 tons of copper are consumed every year by Canadian  railroads alone.  As little as 20 cents worth of  gd'.d-.and silver can be extracted  from copper ore with profit. Last  year in Canada, the gold and silver thus separated amounted to  no less a sum than $460,000.  Dr. James Douglas, president  of the Copper Queen Company, of  Arizona, who is a Canadian and a  native of Quebec, gives some interesting predictions of the future  of copper north of the 49th parallel in the current issue of the  Engineering Magazine. He says  that "if no substitute is discovered and the demand for the metal  increases as it has done during  the modern industrial era, the  supply will falrshort of the demand, and the value of the metal  will rise. . . . But upon tfce  American continent, both south  aud north, there are wonderful  possibilities of future discovery���  in Alaska, aud in British Columbia; in the Labrador Peninsula;  in the great belt of country in  which cobalt and native silver deposits have so recently been discovered between the Lakes and  Hudson Bay. Nor should the  great Canadian Northwest, even  within the Artie Circle, be eliminated from view, for even Hearne's  Copper River would not be shut  off by ice from the world's markets by the closure of Hudson  Bay for many more months than  were the mines of Lake Superior  till with in" very recen t years, when  their copper production could  reach the East only after the opening of navigation."

The most successful of all the  western melo-dramas, dealing  with covvb03* life, which are so  much in vogue at the present  time, is "A Texas Ranger,"  which will be seen in this city for  the first time on Saturday Evening next at the Auditorium.  The story of the play deals  with the life of a cow-puncher  named Jack Dallam, who has  about as many thrilling adventures during the two and a half  hours that the play runs as many  people crowd into a life-time.  The ��� comedy element has not  been overlooked, and the characters of "Danvray Dalviaa"  Dairy mple and " Wildcat " are  screams all the time they are on  the stage.
