The Liberals" of ,Kaslo  have not interferred in this matter,  either .in support of J L. Retallack or  anyone else. The opposition to A..C  Garde's appointment came from those  directly interested in the zinc industry,  who, fro.m their close acquaintance in  the past "with Mr. Garde and his  methods, are the best judges of his  qualifications, U'e understand' the  parlies most active in condemning his  selection are his old neighbors in the  the Sandon mines, including the'Payne  mining company, by wjiich '-* ��� ~  employed.���Kaslo Kootenaian.  Do the values go down? Do "they  increase with depth ? These are questions which are often asked in refer  etice to the big'fow grade bodies of the  Boundary. Knowing;ones shook their  heads and expressed a fear that the  values might pinch out. The writer  had an opportunity a sihort time ago  of seeing a report prepared by an alleged mining expert, who solemnly  stated that there'were no values in the  Mother Lode'mine below the 300-foot  level.' The value of this report has  been, demonstrated by the diamond  drilling which the B. C. Copper company has been carrying on for several  months. This drilling was carried on  from the 300-foot level downward. The  result exceeded the expectation of  even the most optimistic. A body of  $14 ore was encountered.- This value  is largely in excess of that found in  the ore nearer the surface. This strike  is one.of the most important of recent  years. Should the values of the ores  in the -low grade mines increase to  this extent in the lower levels it would  change the status of the Boundary as  a mining district.  Preparations are now (being made at  the Mother Lode mine to 'stope this ore  from 'the lower levels and the main  shaft is now being sunk.  An important find of heavy sulphide  ore was'also made at *.he Mother Lode.  The surface ore has--scarcely enough  sulphide to make a proper matte, but  the diamondv_drill encountered an ore  body at the 300-foot level which carries  4t> per cent, sulphur. This will prove  of tho greatest possible value in  smelting other ores.  he ^ was  GREENWOOD.  RENDELL  These Chilly Nights  Make You Think of Heavier Underwear.

After   securing the opinion of the  majority of our local  mining men, the  Kootenaian is of the opinion   that the  report of the zinc inquiry commission  will be of no  practical   benefit   to the  industry and may result in positive injury.   The advice of those who were  most interested and  are best  capable  of sound judgment was ignored by the  permanent official���in   the  absence of  the minister, the field examination has  only   skimmed over the country and  the sampiing-of thelargerdeposits-has  been a farce; mine "owners  and   claim  owners have.become  indifferent to the  work of the commission; its members  are received politely, but there interest  ends. "Th<"  chkif  field  expert is to be  condoled with rather than criticized.  He found, on   arrival,   a  condition  of  affairs, brought about by Dr. Haanel's  selection  of  his  assistant,  as   to   the  merits of which he knew nothing and  which he has had the polite sagacity to  completelj ignore; and if the  number  of questions propounded  in   writing to  mine  owners  is  any  criterion, he has  been'embarrassed by detailed  instructions, foolish in conception and impossible of fulfillment.    Our  sympathies  arcwith Mr Argall,-whose professional  reputation   is  fortunately  such  as   to  remove   him   from  the  possibility   of  any loss of prestige  through his association     with     the     inquiry.��� Kdblo  Kootenaian.  A. A. Arthur of   New York arrived  Hi the city by the Great Northern train ���"-  on Wednesday  evening.   He was accompanied by C. B. Schmidt,  Pueblo,  Colo., and J. Harvey of  London. Eng.  Mr. Arthur is at the head of the syndicate which aequired  the Midway and  Vernon churter and is now constructing the road.   This was  his first visit  to   the   Boundary and   his   time was .  busily occupied inMnvestigating its resources and arranging details for the  completion of the railway. Mr.Schmidt t  was here in  the interests of German  capitalists   who' are investing iin the  enterprise. They have invested heavily  in irrigated lands' in  the vicinity of  Pueblo, and  Mr.   Schmidt  is looking  after their    interests   in   the   United  States.   Having had much to do with  the irrigation of the arid lands of Colorado,  he  was "naturally  interested in^  the   irrigation    of   British   Columbia  lands and   particularly    in   the   fruit  growing   industry.     In   Colorado  the  sugar beet industry has been developed  very. successfully   and  Mr,   Schmidt  sees no gQpd reason why  a similar industry should not be established in the  interior of  this  province,    He  is  investigating all matters connected with  agriculture   and    horticulture   in   the  country,tributary  to the Midway and  Vernon, and will reportVto his principals regarding the same.'

He visited the big  mines of the Boundary and then went  up the West Fork country 'to see the  rich mines of that district. , s  ' The -party left this morning for  Beaverdell and Carmi. They will return the first of the week and, proceed  to Kelowna and Vernon to tee that  fruit growing district, a .new market  for which will, be opened up by trie  construction of the Midway arm Vernon  Mr: Harvey, who reprebented large  Englishfinancial interests, was amazed  at the remarkable character of the big  mines of this district. "The outside  people," he said, "do not know you  have such properties as the Granby or  the Mother Lode, nor did we know you  had-such_splendid-facilities.-for_cheap-  mining.

During the next five years Canada  will probably increase its railway  equipment by the construction of some  seven to ten, thousand miles of new  railroads.- Whether this estimate is  below or above what will prove to be  the facts, it is 'certain that the Dominion is entering upon a period of  railroad construction which it has not  yet experienced^. Beginning with the  new transcontinental project of the  Grand Trunk Pacific, seconded by the  plans of the Canadian Northern,and  the inevitable growth of the Canadian  Pacific, the total railroad construction  in Canada, particularly iu the great  Northwest, is certain to be large.  There is room in Western Canada for  50,000 miles of railway. Today there  are bcarcely more than 5,000 miles.���  Western Mining World.  How to Cure Corns and Bunions.

OCTOT'ER 20, 1905.  .     J   POOR TORONTO.  The consistency of the Toronto  News is a beautiful thing'. Last  winter it was the most rampant  of the rampant Toronto journals  which catered to the prejudice  and bigotry of the people of Toronto bv howling against the  educational clauses of the autonomy bill. Its editor'was chief  organized of the new party whose  mission was to rescue the new  provinces of the Northwest from  the coercion of the federal party.  The position of the News and its  editor was. particularly pleasing  to the bigots of the most bigoted  city iu tbe Dominion,  Today the Toronto News is  equally strong in its denunciation  because, forsooth, the minister of  justice has refused to coerce the  province of British Columbia in  connection with the tax on commercial travelers. And the latest  position of the News is equally  gratifying to the good people of  Toronto.  The trouble with- Toronto is  that its people fail to realize that  it is no longer a factor in this  . Great Dominica. In these growing times there is no place for  people who drop a copper on the  collection  plate  on  Sunday and  The awarding of a six million  dollar contract to Foley Bros. &  Co. by the��� Grand Trunk Pacific  for the branch'from Fort William  north to the main transcontinental  line .draws attention to the personnel of the contracting linns.  The managing member of the  firm, J. W. Stewart, is well known  iu the Boundary, where he lived  for several years during the construction of the Columbia and  Western railway. Mr. Stewart  came to Canada from the Highlands of Scotland over twenty-  years ag*o. The only advantages  which he then possessed were a  clear head, an, abundance of common sense and plenty of Scotch  grit " and determination. He  worked on the construction of the  C. P. R. in the West. He-afterwards J went f with John, F.  Stephens, the then chief engineer of the Great Northern, who  had the happy faculty of picking-  out promising* youngsters and  giving them a chance. Stewart  soorT began contracting on his  own account and today he and  his associates are the largest firm  of railway contractors on the continent. In addition to the Grand  Trunk work, they have the contract for' double-tracking the C.  E. R. from Port Arther to Winnipeg, and the construction of  the Canadian side oftheV., V\  & $., which will run into millions, a big irrigation ditch near  Calgary and several less important contracts.'  Foley Bros, are also Canadians.  Thev were born near Almonte,  Ontario, and in their early days  ran a sawmill there, but like  many other young Canadians,  they left their own country1 to  seek," fame and fortune in the  Western States. ' They became  railway contractors' and were  eminently successful.  The rise of Pete Larson is  even more ��� remarkable. As his  name indicates, he also conies  from the north country. He  landed in America a poor boy  without any friends or influence.  He began contracting in a.small  way during the construction of  the Northern Pacific. Today he  is reputed to be.;worth $20,000,-  000.  P. Welch, the manager of the  V., V. & E. work, and another  member of tb,e firm, would be a  Scotchman if it wasn't for his  name. Like his associates he  has made his success in railway  building aud has established a  reputation iu the Northwest as  one of the most successful railway contractors in a couutr}-that  is the home of railway contrac-  tsors. Incidentally he h?s been  successful in keeping the wolf a  long* distance 'from the door.  Most of the railway building in  the Boundary has been done under his personal direction and  some of this work has been as  heavy as has ever, been carried  out in any other part of the continent.  This aggregation of men who  are today important factors in  carrying out these huge undertakings that are the natural outcome of the growing times in this  country, are the strongest possible  proof of the fact that there are  opportunities to succeed in the  West. They all began life poor  men. All they had was pluck  and determination and the knack  of taking  advantage  of  the op-  The construction of the Midway and Verntm railway will  open up another large shipping  mining district in British Columbia. Without transportation facilities the development of the  mineral resources of the district  has.been slow but no slower .than  that of other mining sections  similarly situated. The Boundary district today', is easily the  largest shipper in the province,  but even one year after the.Columbia and Western was built the  output was less than 100,000 tons.  Iu 1900 the total shipments were  about 96,000 tons, in 1901 this  was increased to 390,000 tons, in  1902 to 508,000 tons, 1903 to 690,-  000, 1904 to 830,000, and this year  from present indications the tonnage should, reach 900,000 tons.  This gives au indication of the  rapid increase that comes -with  adequate transportation facilities.  The West Fork country has  some veins of high grade ore, but  it also has large bodies of low  grade shipping ore. Up Beaver  creek, in the vicinity of Carmi, in  fact in the whole district from  Rock Creek fo ^the summit are"  big ledges of ore which can ^e  profitably mined and treated as  soon as the transportation facilities are - provided.- Then, too,  the mining district along the main  Kettle ' river around Canyon-City  and elsewhere in the drainage  area-of the main Kettle will become a factor to the West Fork  road at Westbridge.  With such a promising district,  it is gratifying to learn that  those who have secured cohtrol  of the Midway and Vernon  charter are now on the ground  determined to push construction  as fast as money and men can'do  so. >The construction of this  railway will be a factor in making the province of British Columbia whnt it ought to be, the  richest and most prosperous  province os the Dominion. It  will also insure a handsome return on the money invested, in the  enterprise. , - ���  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  Capital, all paid up, $14,000,000.  $10,000,000.

He - toolc  charge of the  *"postofnce , department at a time  -when a reformer with the courage  to carry out his, ideas was absolutely necessary. ; He found the  department running behind each  year. He popularized the department by giving penny postage  not only within Canada but with  the Empire, and he had the satisfaction of seeing the deficit disappear. During his twenty-five  years of public life there . was  never a suggestion,, not even  from his bitterest political .opponents, of any tiling> ,that was  not honor-able arid' .upright. A  loyal party man, a strong friend  of,/Sir Wilfrid, Laurier and a  courteous opponent, his ��� retirement will be regretted by boilh  sides of the house. ,-  'But men may come and men  may' go, the government of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier will still be doing  business at the old 'stand. , In  Mr.'Aylseworth Sir Wilfrid has  .found a worthy, successor to Sir  William- Mulock", !(He achieved  international reputation in connection with, the Alaskan bound-  . ary award, and he is ubig~ enough  and'able enough to.fittingly wear  the' mantle which "Sir William  Mulock has transferred to him.

C. Dur  ing- all of this perion' otid certainly  until 900 B. C. the metals passed by  i*l weight, in bars or ingots or in crude  form, dust, etc. The shekel, the talenl,  the^a, of the ancients were weights,  jttBt as is the tael. of China today, aud  the names of certain coins were names  of weights, as drachma, mark, pound,  livre", lire, peso, etc. The use of the  metals a9-ihouey by weight proved an  objectionable process, involving continuous ufe ^of the s.caks, and doubtless'the defects in'the'means"of weigh-  ing.and in.determining the purity of  the .metals broughe about 'innumerable disputes. The introduction by  the early -Greeks in 900 B. B. of the  device of coinage brought about < a  great improvement,, and from this,a 11  nations have' profited, the admirable  system of coinage today being the outcome of this Greek innovation.   Although steel concrete is undoubted*/, much more durable tlian^-either  , steelor wood, it is far from perfect as  a material for water pipes. Concrete  is porous, and while theoretically it  might be composed of.-such material  as would render it impervious to water  under ordir.ary pressure, practically ic  is difficult to make it so. Water u-'der  pressure tells the truth without fear or  favor, and there are many practical  difficulties to be overcome in the construction of steel Concrete pipe. The  most careful attention to details and  rigid inspection and supervision are  necessary to produce a steel concrete  pipe that will stand 100 feet of head of  water without appreciable leakage.  As a result of extended experiments  in the London mint it has been determined that gold losses in the 'muffle  are not.uniform in all parts thereof���  being greater at the sides than in the  middle. To guard against this trouble  the mint has now constructed its furnaces so that the draft through the  muffle is independent of the draft  through the furnace. This permits of  better regulation of the heat and air  supply. The muffle has also been.increased in.length and the first row of  cupels or scorifiers is placed further  back���not nearer than seven inches to  the front of the muffle. This row is  further protected from direct draft by  a firebrick two inches high.  Some Seasonable Advice.  It iiybea pieceof superfluous advice to urge, people at this season "of  the.year to lay in a supply of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.

'���        /  ���/ In mineralogy the word aster ism refers to those minerals having- a property of showing- <> six-sided star either  by reflected or transmitted lig-lnt. Mica  and sapphire often show this peculiarity.  The Mohave desert, California, is an  arid basin lying* mainly in San Bar-  nardino county, in the southwest, and  also extending- into Arizona and forming part of the great Colorado desert.  The Mohave river, rising in the San  Barnardino mountains, flows through  it for some distance until it disappears  in the Mohave sink.  Sir William Ramsay states that not  more than one tenth of an , ounce of  radium is known to be in existence,  and that the amount of radium salts  commonly referred to as radium  very small.  In some of the older and more impoverished coal' mining districts in  Europe, where thin veins are being  worked, the coal is being haule. out in  100-pound lots. Sleds or baskets are  used aud the miners haul their own  coal.  One of the lines in which it is expected that great progress will be  made in the Orient, now that the war  is ended,, is in coal mining. It is reported that there are immense resources of this nature in the Chinese Empire.  The purchase price of Alaska was  $7,250,000, and it has been estimated  - that the money which its furs fisheries  and mines have returned to the people  of the United States since its'purchase  is in excess of ten billion1 dollars.  In a number of particulars the Bar-  i rientos railway tunnel, near the City  of Mexico, is unique. It is generally  creeited with having been driven without loss of jife, with the lowest cost  per unit of excavation of any similar  work in the republic and at the fastest  rate.  The greatest problem in cyaniding  slimea is the separation of the solution  from the , slime.1 Dec'antatiou and  filter pressing are both used to accomplish this purpose. Other patent processes are known and used with varying degrees of success.  The distance to which sinking may  be carried ahead of timbering will  vary according to the ground. It may  be that the walls will permit the operator to practically ignore the point,  while in other cases, lagging- ma}'  have to be driven ahead'of sinking.  The use of white phosphorus in the  manufacture of matches has been discontinued by common consent in a  number of foreign countries. The  prevalence of necrosis among the  workmen is reported to have diminished materially as a result of this  action.  In the Whiting system of d**ep hoisting the rope pa-sses several times  around two drums which, as a rule, are  both driving drums.    One  end  of  the   , rope is .made-fast -to the-cage or skip,-  while the other passes around an idler  sheave located on a carriage, and  thence to the other compartment of the  shaft. By means of the carriage the  positions of the two c"ges or skips may  be changed to suit the different levels  in the shaft.  The courses of study leading" to t.ie  degree of mining engineer occupy four  years, but exhibit quite wide variation  in plan and scope, according to school.  The requirements for admission to the  best mining schools comprise: Elementary and certain portions of advanced  mathematics, elementary chemistry  and physics, freehand drawing. English, elementary history, elementary  German and either elementary French  Latin or Spanish.  Compressed air is used in refining  gold bullion. By blowing the air  through the molten mass the base  metals are oxydized and may be slagged off by a mixture of borax and  sand. Lead anti antimony are removed  at an early stage, while copper is re  moved last and the silver remains with  the gold. The losses of precious metals-  are small.  if  Never la the history of the Boundary has the district had a brighter outlook than today.   With, the successful, de/  velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating ~-Jfj?  at a very small cost,   the continued opening up of new,high grade properties -and their successful and profit abl ^t \  operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds and  bigger values,,  It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto!  and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte.

Oct. 9,1905.  I should have, dropped a line before  now, but as I was a wanderer I thought  it best to defer writing until I had a  postoffice address. I have been here  and shall remain for a time. Gold-  field is a boom, town, built up inless  than two years on shipments of very  rich gold ore from a half dozen claims,  none of which came from below 200  feet. Property is, very high, 25-foot  ���lots on the main street being held at  from 200' to 400 a front foot. But I am  of opinion the town has seen its best  clays, although it will" be a, mining  town for years. Tonopah, 28 mile distant, is in the same condition. At  that place there are well-defined veins  of good width, carrying good values  in silver and gold. Several shafts are  down over 700 feet, and one or two  over 1,000 feet. Sixty-five miles south  is another district (Bullfrog), in which  several remarkably rich finds have  been made. But this is not a new  country by any, means. Old districts  are scattered all over this section of  the state, several having been scenes  of active mining operations thjrty and  forty years ago.  Goldfleld is a type of the American"  mining town,' Most of the residence  buildings are canvas. 'There are also  good frame buildings, and half a dozen  stone buildings', one almost as large as  the K. WYC. block, but the country  around is a desert.   ' ���  I might write something personal,  but the least said the better. The decision of Judge Irving made me disgusted; that decision, coupled with the  fact' that I seemed* to be unable <o  make any headway in business at Nelson, developed a fit of despondency. <  It was continual worry 'and borrowing from Peter,to pay Paul. -  "'I am discredited; I am broke in my  old age; but I gave'Nelson and its  people the-best that was in me'for 15  years, and every dollar I made is still  in evidence 'in Nelson in property that  is paying taxes.      ,   ,  The debtsJI left will be paid if I live;  fori-have good  health  aud  there are  OO0O00OO0O0O0OO0O0O0O<XKK)<>  H.

The above letter, written by John  Houston to his late newspaper, the  Nelbon Tribune, cannot but arouse the  sympathy,of the many people in the  Interior who knew John Houston. He  was a natural born fighter. He gave  no quarter and he asked none. He  naturally made bitter enemies, but he  always worked loyally for Nelson and  its best interests. After, fifteen years  of a life more strenuous than mest men  lived, John Houston must have written  failure with a bitter pang. He had  ability and courage and was resourceful, and, had he been created in a different mold or trained in a different  school, in all probability he would today write success instead of failure.  . But his faults were his own, ard the  majority of people wiil admire the  glorious spirit which suggests that he  will succeed yet.  HIGGINS-CLARKSON.  By the Rev. father Bedard. in the  Roman Catholic chuech ..last Thursday  morning, yMr. ; James Higgins was  married to Miss Alice C. Clarkson.  Both are young people of Greenwood.  Mr. Higgins came here from Anaconda,  Mont., and has^ been in .employed for  the past year'as an electrical engineer  in the B. Q. Copper company's smelter.

The Times joins with their  many friends in offering congratula  tions. k  Tuesday evening his fellow employes  in the smelter presented Mr. Higgins  with a silver lea set. '  HAROLD NELSON IN TRAGEDY.  "Will  appear   here soon in   "FRAN  CESCA  da   RIMINI'',    the    greatest  tragedyof Italian history'.  Probably no character in dramatic  literature so; thoroughly runs the  gauntlet of human emotions as does  Lauciottot*the warrior hunchback who  is the,central figure ,of the powerful  tragic drama "Francesca da  Rimini".  This story, suggested by Dante, and  elaborated by Baker, tells of the, marriage of beautiful Francesca to the  deformed Lanciotto* and th; secret  love between her, and her husband's  handsome brother, Paolo. ' The hape-'  less passion of Francesca, the agonizing despair of Paola and' the awful  retribution of Lancitto gives scope for  thrilling situations and tremendous  climaxes. Mr. Nelson and his clever  associates take every advantage oi  these opportunities, and a perform  ance of unusual strength and merit is  anticipated when this clever company  appear here Monday October 30th.
