The Growth in Some Features of Farm  Work Showing Surprlsinef  Results.  :fB9  RENDELL & GO  Underwear  Bulletin No. 10, issued by the Bureau  of Provincial information, contains  much to show the advance the province  is making of late years in an agricultural and horticultural way. For example, the tons of fruit shipped abroad  in 1902 was 1,956, and in 1905 it was  4,357 tons, a gain in three years ot over  120 per cent. The amount of fruit  consumed at home must have been  correspondingly increased, and more  ao, because of larger population and  decrease in amount of foreign fruit  snipped in. The quality of the B. C.  fruit is recognized at home and abroad.  The prairie provinces and even England have attested to the same, and  now that the industry is on an acknowledged basis it is-up to our chip-  pers to maintain its standard. A few  careless shipments of poor fruit, or  even good fruit poorly packed, can  quickly undo the work done.  The acreage in fruit is rapidly growing, particularly in the Okanagan  country, and many thousands of trees  recently come into bearing will steadily increase the yield, and the profits  to come from this industry are bound  to be very considerable.  In the Okanagan the profits from  fruitgrowing are phenomenal, in instances, reaching-5500 ^per ?acre.- Fore-sample, on the Coldstream ranch, near  Vernon; 20 acres of Northern Spy  apples yielded $10,000 worth of fruit.  Peaches and pears do equally well, and  tomatoes have proved a remunerative  crop.  In butter making great strides are  also being made. A few years ago all  the butter used in the Boundary came  from Manitoba or Washington. Today  a large part comes from the creameries  of the province, chiefly west of the  mountains. Sixteen creameries last  year yielded nearly a million ano a half  pounds of butter at a selling price of  from 25 cents to 30 cents, and producing a creamery value of S400,000.  Tn other departments of farm work  the grow.th^is_=.also.__1satisfactoryJ._^Biit_  the opportunities for the farmers are  not yet all availed cf. The province  imports jnnually over, a million dollars worth of hog products. This  market is open to the farmer and at  highly profitable price.--. But the  farmer is awakening to his opporuni-  ties and the progress he is making is  very satisfactory.  SMELTER   TROUBLE  Dissatisfaction at the Big  Plant.

Co.  Men's Goods.  Dr. Fagan, of Victoria, who  for some time has been keenly  alive to the necessiy of some advanced method of systematic  treatment of the great "'white  plague," and who has been foremost in bringing before the Brit-  I ish Columbian public the establishing at some suitable place a  sanitarium for the treatment of  tuberculosis, was in Greenwood  during the week. He addressed  i a public meeting in the Presbyterian church on Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, and steps were  taken for furtherance of so benevolent a scheme.  A committee consisting of  Mayor Naden, Dr. Spankie and  one member to be chosen by the  city council, one by the Board of  Trade, and one by each of the  citv churches, was named to take  in hand the matter locally. The  object aimed at is to secure a  grant from the municipality- of  $30 per annum for each thousand  ! of inhabitants for the maiuten-  | ance of such a sanitarium as proposed. The committee will incidentally look after local contributions for the cause.  Develops into a Strike and Men Are  Called Out Wednesday  Noon.  For two weeks .paM there have been  street rumors of impending trouble at  the smelter. Men whu claimed to have  been treated u-i f.iirlv bv the management in the matter of wage put their  grievance up co the local union. The  mistake is. in certain instances, admitted by the management, but the  same, they "claim, wa-, inadvertent, and  purely the error of the office department. If this he so, the pity is that  the wronged men c*.id not go direct to  the 'management ana discuss the matter. The explanation, doubtless, is  that said men felt the wrong wa* a  violation of the wage scale, and as  such ought to go before the organized  body.  I^ast May, after a consultation wit't  a committee of its employees, the company adopted a scale of wages, which  was acceptable to the men, but which  they claimed ��� their federation foroad  their signing. Their acceptance of-  the same, was, however, assented to-r,  and confirmed by their returning to l[  work thereunder. Although they felt,  that.in some instances the scale was  low, tbe local,organization claims that  the-men would have lived up to the  same for the life thereof, until May,  1909, if the company had not violated  the same in the instances referred to.  '*" This having tieeh done,"tiie"' tiieii felt'  the time 'Opportune'' to seek a general  readjustment, and so notified the company. The time chosen to open the  question was unfortunate for the company, owing to the illness of Manager  McAllister Mr. F. Keffer, however, ���  with his characteristic devotion to his  company, and with his usual courtesy,  in the absence of ihe manager, used  his best ondeavors to heal the bre.ich.  When the union's demands were fully  set before him, however, it was apparent that the solution of the question  rested with the company's directorate,  and so the entire matter was referred  to New York. '   , 1  On Saturday last the company made  a statement of its view of the case and  submitted-thcsame-to-ihe-public-in-a���  Times' special. '   _.,  The local union, chafing under delay,  submitted an ultimatum to the company, stating that unless their demands  were conceded before rioon of Wednesday last, the men would then walk out.  Wednesday morning a telegram to the  local management of the smelter came  from New York, stating^hat a meeting  of the directors was* tiding held that  day in New York to co-isider the entire  matter. This t:legra/i was submitted  lo the se.-.retary of the union, and  although he was not? >rmerly requested  to delay calling the men out until after  the result of such meeting was known,  it was doubtless with' Uie .expectation  that such a course would follow.  The ;ouip;iity'.- request to meet a  committee of tliei ������ e'mpi.>vev>. and discuss the matter, .vliioh at this juncture  seemed for a moment likely !���> he gratified, faili-d. however, ami at 12 thr-  men walked out. and the lire.-, were  banked.  On Wednesday evening the company  addressed a lettter to the union, of  which the following is a copy:  S'OVEMBEK 21st. 1906.  Robert Maihe^cm, Y',m\..  rinaucial Secretary.  Ureenvvocd Mlner.4..'

I<3i3  mi i  DIED IN SLEIGH  ����ra G3SJa-"E3SE!3"JB  James McQueen Dies from Heart Failure This Morning.  James McQueen died this morning-,  while driving- between this city and  Rock Creek, where In; was employed  by Denmark Johnston. Death w as  due to heart failuiv, caused by alcohol.  McQueen, who i.s well known around  the Boundary, had been in the city fur  several lays and had been drinking-  heavily during- his stay here. He left  this morning- about 10 o'clock, and  when near the Lancashire house at  Midway, died almost instantly. Dr.  jtfewcombe, at Midway, was called, but  after an examination decided that an  inquest was unnecessary. Deceased  was 46 years of age.  SLAUGHTERING DEER  The report is current that one  hunter got six deer iu one day recently in the vicinity of Midway.  We trust that the report is exaggerated, because the riumber is in  excess of the law's allowance.  Moreover, they have hitherto  been considered sporthmen around  Midway and not pot hunters.  BRITISH COLUMBIA FRUIT  The fruit sent from British Columbia  by the provincial government in charge  of R. M. Palmer, of the department of  agriculture, already has won recognition. Although it only arrived in the  Old Country about a fortnight ago the  display that Mr. Palmer eutered at the  Scottish Horticultural exhibition at  Edinburgh captured the first prize���  the gold medal of that organization.  This gratifying news was cabled to  the minister of agriculture. The information, while meagre as to detail,  definitely states that the premier plac *���  at this fair, one of the largest held in  the old land, has been awarded the  fruit grown in British Columbia and  shipped over thousands of miles by  rail and steamer. ~  A remarkable achievement.  When the conditions under which  the.exhibit was made are considered  the extent of the achievement can be  better realized. Qn ; of the first difficulties with which Mr. Palmer had to-  coutend was the keeping of the fruit  in good condition. He had to exercise  the greatest care in transportation. In  this he was assisted by the government  and the C. P. R., cold storage facilities  being provided en route. Upon arriv  ing at his destination he had very little ttme to get the display in place. It  had to sent with the utmost care to Edinburgh, Scotland, and then placed in  position. With his usual energy and  judgment, Mr. Palmer overcame all  these difficulties . and had the British  Columoia exhibit ready before the  judges made their rounds. The result  could not have been mora satisfactory.  A HAPPY CHOICE  Took an Earl Instead of a Duke and  Got a Man.  Before the happy selection of Earl  Grey as governor general of Canada,  an effort was made by the English  press to boom tht: little Duke of Marlborough for the position. It was said  that he was a young man of large  ability, had been a member of the Brit  ish cabinet, had fought in South  Africa? and that he had a chatming  and rich American for a wife who  would know how to administer the  hospitalities of the Ottawa government  house according to new world idea--.  The Canadians were not to be caught  by such chaff. They wanted a statesman, not a figurehead, a man with  brains who owed his position to his  ability, not to the accident of birth;  a man who, even if he had been born  born to the people, had held his own by  the force of intel'ec* aud the industrious application of his wits. The boom  failed. The British government withdrew Marlborough's name from the  list of probable appointees and sent  out Earl Grey. And now the duke is  in a sea of matrimonial trouble. His  rich American wife has tired of him  and sent him adrift. He got 35,01)0,000  with her as a dowry, and raised a great  hubub because her father saw fit to  marry again. That was the final cause  of trouble. Besides, the duke, who is  short of stature but not at .ill ill looking, is accustomed to look 'on the svine  when it is red. H-. is a!s>�� fund of the  opposite sex aud tlierr is a lair American girl mixed up somewhere in the  tangle. The two boy? remain tor the  present with the father at Blenheim.  If the departing wife should pay a  sufficient sum she will get the children.  If not, not.���Exchange.

E. Lentier  again on the street, almost recovered  from the very severe accident of several weeks ago, since which he has  been in the hospital.  Ernest Mills arrived in town Thursday evening. Mr. Mills was for a long  time secretary of the Miners' union  here, and exerted a powerful influence  in all labor questions It is trusted  that he may be able, by careful methods, to restore harmon y in the smelter  situation here.  The dance given by the Greenwood  Concert Band, in the Reliance block,  on Thursday evening last, was a great  success. A large number of people  were present and a good time enjoyed.  At midnight a nice supper, prepared by  J. Jaynes, was spread in the upper  hall. The affair was most enjoyable  and a neat sum netted by the band to  apply on its instrument purchase account. The band was assisted in its  music by Mrs. Oliver and Mr. Binerof  Phoenix.  Chapped Hands.

Work is to be resumed on the  Athelstan by the Dominion Copper Co.. a settlement of disputed  matters having been reached.  About a million dollars worth  of ore has been shipped from the  Greenwood high grade mines  since development began thereon  in 1903.  On Monday last the bond on  the B. C. was taken up by the B.  C. Copper Co. The company has  been shipping considerable ore  from the property, taken out in  the process of cleaning up the  mine.  Word-h?s been received that  work is presently to be proceeded  with on the Moreen claim in  Deadwood camp. The plans of  tbe management embrace the installation of an electric compressor and electric hoist.  The Golconda tunnel is now in  115 feet, leaving 60 vet to go en  the present contract, Satisfactory progress is being maintained  although considerable water, is  being encountered. Prospects of  striking the lead at the point indicated are good.  About twelve tons of high  grade ore have been taken out of  the Mayis, in the preliminary  work of development now being  carried on by the bondholders. A  car of ore will be shipped within  the next few days.  Mr. Records, who recently-  bonded the Tip Top, is in town  to begin work on the-property.  The bond calls for 50 days' work  per month on the claim.  While working on the road being constructed by the government between Anarchist mountain a n d McKin ney, a stringer of  very rich ore was opened upand  a claim thereon immediately  staked. This is in tbe vicinity of  Dayton camp, from which such  rich gold ore was taken a few  years ago.  Work has begun on the Caber-  fel claim recently bonded by a  local syndicate. The claim is  near the No. ,7 in Central camp,  and is owned by Messrs. Flett  and Buchanan. The Caberfel is  believed to be.au excellent property.

To relieve a cough or break up a cold  in twenty-four hours, the following  simple formula, tlie ingredients of  which can be obtained of any good  prescription druggist at small cost, is  all that will be required: Virgin Oil  of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; Glycer-  ini', two ounces; g-ood Whisky, a half  'pintr'^Shake'weil-anii-tak-ein'teaspcotr-  fui doses every f:-ur hours. The destied  results can not be obtained unless the  ingredients are pbre. It is therefore  better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin Oil ot Pine (Pure) should  be purchased in the original half ounce  vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is securely sealed ia  a round wooden cas* which protects  the Oil from exposure to light. Around  the wooden case is an engraved wrapper with the name���"Virgin Oil uf  Pine (Pure)"���plainly printed thereon.  There tire many imitations and cheap  productions of Pine, but these only  create nausea, and never effect tbe  desired results, 11-24  Both gold aud silver coins in circulation in the United States contain 90  per cent of pure metal. 'Ihe silver  coins contain 10 per cent of copper,  and those of gold 10 per cent of copper  alloy, not more than one tenth of which  can be silver.  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ��  ty  *  ty  ty  ty  &  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  GOOD CHEER  V  ty-  ty  tf-  *  ty  ty  ty  ty  n  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  .ty  ���ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ,_areJ;heJ3est.^jAtst^receLvie,^  cooking stoves and ranges*.

The  employer ought to be urbane and  the employee ought to be manly.  The former should recognize in  the latter a man his peer many  times in everything that goes to  make manhood, and the latter  ought to regard the former as  worthy his confidence and respect. When the employer finds  something wrong in his employee  he owes it to him to talk it over  patiently and 'calmly, and when  the employee is dissatisfied with  his employer he owes it to him to  present his grievance for adjust  ment rather than to make it mat  ter for public discussion, It may  appear business heresy to teach  that a long-time faithful employee has a vested interest in  the business his brain and brawn  have helped to create, but to us  it seems that way, and the relations that bind corporations and  workmen ought to be sacred.  Neither should arbitrarily disrupt these relations if at all pre  ventible consistent with the preservation of the well being of  all concerned. Of course the employer has a duty to himself and  his business interests to secure  satisfactory return for money  paid, and just so the emp'oyee  has the duty to himself to secure  fitting returns for his devotion  and labor. Testy employers and  and unjust employees make an  ill-assorted partnership, and such  a partnership can no more make  success of a business enterprise  than it can hope to win public  confidence, and after all, the day  has come when both parties to an  undertaking need public confidence tp succeed.  The Boundary Creek Times is  informed that censure is being-  passed, in some quarters, on Duncan Ross, M. P., for the appearance of last Saturday's special.  No censure is deserved by auy-  one connected with the Times for  said special, least of all by Mr.  Ross. The special was bought  by the British Columbia Copper  Co. for the purpose of publishing  its siguod' statement which appeared on the first page. The  Times is a commercial undertaking and its space is open for any  person or any organization which  desires to do what the Copper Co.  did.    In presenting the story of the  trouble at the B. C. company's  works here we have striven to  state the case from a historical  standpoint without favor or prejudice, for or against either side to  the controversy. If we have  erred in< any way the same has  not been intentional, but the result of misinformation on the  part of others or misapprehension  on the part of ourselves. With  the salient tacts presented, it is  for others to form judgment. The  Times is not the retained mouthpiece of either party, and leaves  the matter with the newspapers'  proper jury���the public.  Simon Guggenheim for thej  senate is now the word. The  senate of the United States is a  unique collection of millionaires,  now likely to be added to by the  election of Guggenheim from  Colorado.  We don't like the sulphur  fumes, but just as soon as, for  any cause, the smoke ceases to  come from the tall chimney apprehension of the deadly kind  seizes us.  Every man who can afford it  ought to own his home. An  owned home is generally kept in  better condition inside and out  than a rented one. It is quite  natural.  Railway promoters need a pa-  tteuce that would have made Job  ashamed of himself. Hereafter  let us not say "as patient as Job,"  but as patient as a railway promoter.    Thev are it.  mwmnmmmmmmmifflmMMm^  Mrs. Russell Sage isn't dealing out her troublesome millions  to suit the fancy of her many  callers who believed she was just  pining for opportunities to get  rid of her lucre.

Just remember the da}- of our  first fall of snow���November  19th���and *when the hot water  bag- man rolls in with his doleful  tale of nine months winter and  all that, call him dow.n. We-  have watched the winter in the  valley of Boundary creek pretty  close for the last eight years, and  we think we may safely put our  winter in the valley as averaging  from November 15th to March  15th, taking one year with  another.  ! Of two evils choose the least,  ibut of two lawyers choose the  ; best, unless you do even better  ' and keep out of litig-ation.  Winter appears to have come  to stay, and the small boy and  the wood merchants are correspondingly happy.. ���'���'-'  Look well to your stove pipes,  or. else increase that insurance  policy. ,  Geeenwo_d is beco min infamous as a -winter resort. Our  tourist colony now embraces men  from Aldermere, Telkwa, Yellow-  head Pass, Death Valley, Cobalt  and other summer spots. Hither  they flock from the snow fields  of the north and the burning  sands of the suth.  Although Xmas is five weeks  away the merchants are getting  ready. The Xmas season makes  liberal patrons, and good patrons  make good stocks of goods. The  merchants of Greenwood have  few. peers in any western town  when it comes to display of stock.  The Alituideu quicksilver mines in  Spain have been worked almost con-  ti<tuously since 164-S, more than 4,000  miners have been employed, and the  production to date is valued at over  ��50,000,000.  , Roosevelt says "no third term  for me." Heart, "never again a  candidate." And so the sky  clears. Vice President Fairbanks  on the one hand, and W. J. Bryan  on the other, are feeling pretty  welLthese days.

The management will see to it that you have,  various ways to invest your surr  plus cash, and that while doing  so a pleasant time will be enjoyed^  Entertainment in the evening  will embrace the presentation of  the farce comedy ''My Turn  Next,"  bv  the Greenwood Ama-  #  c ���  teur Dramatic Co., and the Auditorium has been engaged for the  occasion.  On Sunday morning the fire department was called ��� out in response to a fire alarm from Gold  street. The fire team was making a fast run down Greenwood  street unconscious of the danger  that lay ahead. At Silver street  Chief ,,of Police McKenzie halted  the team, and pphited out to the  driver that the bridge across  Boundary creek was occupied by  a house, moved thereon late Saturday. The. bouse, belonging to  A. L. White^ was being removed  to Silver street by Ch rides J. McArthur. What might have been  a serious accident was narrowly-  averted.  The Dominion Copper Co. has  just received from the Nelson  Iron works a very fine casting iu  the shape of a copper breast  jacket, the first ever made in  British Columbia. The material  of which the jacket was made  was 97 per cent copper, and to  make such a casting of such  quality of material is considered  delicate work. Hitherto the local  companies have drawn on, the  large eastern firms for work of  this character. The Nelson Iron  works, it may be added, is the  parent concern of the plant now  going in here. ������*  BEARS AND OTHER BIG THINGS  If the Grand Forks correspondent of the Spokesman-Review and  the Canadian doesn't letup a little on those wonderful bear  stories he has been telling so persistently of late, be will be having a rush of hunters into the  district rather than of mining  men. and that ore on Hardy  mountain that runs24 percent in  copper and S5 in gold per ton  will be entirely overlooked. We  may warn the gentleman, moreover, thaf if any of -his bears  wander over here somebody will  take a shot at them, but his immensely rich ore is safe as this is  a low grade copper camp.  The Canadian hotel at Niagara, a small town on the North  Fork, was the scene of a most  dastardly crime . early ��� Sunday  morning last. From the best of  advices obtainable it would appear as if the miscreant responsible fer the crime, prompted by  feelings of jealousy and revenge,  stole a box of dynamite from the  warehouse of .W. P. Tierney, contractor on the Hot Air line, with  which to accomplish his terrible  deed.  The house was badly wrecked,  and Miss King, reported to be  the daughter of the' proprietor,  and an Italian sleeping iu the  house, were killed and nine others  wounded.  The coroner went up to the  scene of the crime on Monday.  The party responsible for the  crime is believed to be known,  but so far has escaped arrest.

DRAMATIC   COMPANY  The Greenwood Amateur Dramatic company presented ''Our  Boys" in the Auditorium Friday  evening last tc a large and appreciative audience. The cast,  as presented, was as follows:  Sir Geoffrey Cl'iuifpneys, a county  ii.agnate F.   W.  McLaine  Talbot   Cha:npr.cys, his sou    Randolph Stiiiirt  Perkyn. Middlewick, a retired   but���  terman:.... ..N. F  Kendall  Charles Middlewick, his  sou    C  A. Thomas  Kemster, :i butler A. K.  Diichesney  Violet Metsose. atiiheiress.,     .Mrs. A. W. English  Mary Melrose, her poor   cousin   ....:' Miss Oppenheimer  Clarissa Clu-mpiieys, Sir Godfrey's  sister ..Miss Beldon  Belinda, a lod.tfhit;'   house  slavey...,   .Miss Stark  There was not a weak part to  the play and the entertainment  went smoothly from start to finish. The characters were all  nicely and tastefully costumed  and the stage was appropriately  set.  The music was good, but a  trifle loud, il seemed, due doubtless to the presence of the entire  band rather than a selected orchestra. The gods of the gallery  appeared to be on their best behavior, although an occasional  fire was lighted and a few cigarettes burned. It would add to  the comfort of the patrons of the  house if a smoking- room were  convenient for tlie use of those  who can't wait until the play is  over.  The play was given under the  auspices of the Roman Catholic  church, aud a nice sum must have  beeu realized for a worthy cause.  The company plaved to a Grand  Porks audience on Saturday evening. Although the amount of  work and expense involved must  be considerable iu getting up  these amateur performances, we  trust this excellent company may  appear before the public again  -luriuy the winter.

He sa'd it was his intention  to utilize it in giving improved postal  facilities to the metropolis of the dominion and to the country at large. It  would also, he observed, be his pleasure at no distant date to give protec  tion to the Canadian prsss against the  "yellow-Lpress-ofM.!:e"southern=-rej-ub-  lic. It would likewise be his privilege  before long to give the country intellectual preference, by giving British  periodicals iind newspapers a preference, that was to say, cheaper postage,  in order to disseminate in this country'  good and sound literature, and give  those in the west who were coining  from the British Isles a little of what  happened in the old country, the old  homes and among the old folks,  TIN   DISCOVERY.

Mclmyro, of Grand Forks,was  in the citv last evening on his way  home from a fruitless "gold rush" to  Birling, 45 mile.--, north of Battle-ford.  The annoucement made broadcast iti  all western Canadian papers of the  fabulous discoveries, caused a local  syndicate in Grand Forks to hurriedly  dispatch Mr. Mclntyre to the scene.  "I have experienced several gold  rushes in Alaska, and elsewhere," said  Mr. Mclntj-re to a reporter of The  Daily News last'night, but while the  Birling affair was comparatively a  small matter, it was serious enough  while it lasted. Over one thousand  persons were drawn to the soot and  they came from widely separated  points. It was said that the 'gold'  territory covered 26 square miles, pnd  thousands of feet were located on ali  sorts of grounds. Notices were posted  up in every direction, and laud was  'located' for chicken ranches, fruil  lands, ranches, and in every imaginable manner. Upon my arrival I was  offered several 'valuable claims' for  varying amounts of cash, but we*n I  asked the vendors for their licenses I  found they had not got that far and  they did not seem to know that such  documents were necessary.  "The way the affair started is almost  laughable, . The day pumpman at the  railroad station tank found the supply  pipe had been choked up and he proceeded to investigate, digging down  sonic few feet. He. announced that the  pipe was filled with equal quantities of  blabk sand and gold, and I understand,  offered to sell a cupful for. 35500.. The  story got out and then the telegraph  got in its" deadly work and did the  rest, and with the result that'over one  thousand people rushed in and began  staking off oclaims and digging for  black sand. There Is plenty of fine  white sand all over the neighborhood,  but of gold, there is of course, no sign  whatevet, although on the Saskatche  wan river near Prince Albert, a diedge  is doing some good placer raining work.  The whole thing was a rather stupid  hoax, and if you ask me, t fancy whiskey was at the bottom of the pipe  dream."

M. Courtney,  CV. M. G., ex-deputy of finance of  Canada, in an address before the Canadian club yesterday, in referring to  public expenditure, said that certain  classes of expenditure properly regit  lated, are eminently desirable to be  made and should be encouraged. He  wou'd even allow that in recent de-  velopmet^liS, there had been no extravagance, but 'iallowing all this, he was  afraid Canada was spending too much.  It seemed to him that Mr. Gladstone's  favorite   formula   might   be   adopted.  Canada, out of its abundance, might  redeem its indebtedness or might reduce its taxation, or it might, without  adding to its debt, pay for its great  national warks. xVt the present time  every effort should me made to save.  There are iarge maturing liabilities to.  be met of loans some 25 or 30 years  back and it will require all the wisdom  of the government to meet the future  and preserve our high credit.

I am glad  in the future it is to be my privilege to  stand for the principles of g-overnment  which I have always advocated, with  out being a candidate for office, and on  thai account attacked with bitterness."

A cablegram  leceived tod a v from London states that  at the annual meeting of the ]?e Roi  Mining Co., held there, a dividend of  two shillings a share was declared.  The report of A. J. McMillan, managing director, was read and it gave a.  most favorable account of the condition of the mine. The present dividend is for $100,000. This, added to  what has already been paid, $1,377,000,  gives a grand total of $1,477,000. The  conditiou of the mine, owing to the  discoveries west of the Josie dyke,which  makes the Le Roi practically a new  mine, and owing to the important dis-.  coveries of ore in the old workings, is  most favorable. There is more ore in  the mine than ever in vis history,  Already its gross yieldyhas been $18,-  000,000 and the possibilities are that in  the next ten years it will yield twice  that amount.

I took internal rnedi-  jji dines  and  trted  various salves;  in  vain.    One   night I read  about Zam-Buk and bought a box.

BILEANS .A "WOMAN'S MEDICINE"  The  Russell-Law-Caulfield, Co, W  Hardware  ^  Furnishings  Groceries  ^  SOLVING THE PROBLEM  A telegram from Victoria to the Nelson Daily News, says;  "Twenty-gve thousand of the laboring classes of England will be brought  to Canada nezt year through the Salvation Army. This announcement was  made by a local repiesentative of the  organization.  "Commissioner Coombe is expected  to arrive here early next niontb to enter into negotiations with the provincial government with the idea of arranging to bring a large proportion of  their emigrants to British Columbia.  ���'Of the 12,000 that were given passage from the old country to Canada  last year through the instrumentality  of the Army, very few reached this  province.  "Owing to lcckof desirable laboring  classes the provincial authorities are  anxiqus'that some of these homeseek-  ers 8houldnfTn10^'"r~w"aT^^  They wish particularly to bringtrained  agriculturalists as helpers for the  farmers, experienced miners to augment the forces at the different mines  of the interiur'andon Vancouver island  and girls to take places as domestic  servants, a class of labor needed all  through British Columbia.  ���'The minister of agriculture is responsible for the move aud hopes  arrange with the Army to indues as  many as possible of these workers to  come to this country. He i-s confident  that several thousands could be accommodated here and proposes enlisting  the help of both the Army and the  transportation companies.  "His plans have not yet been derin  itely announced.  TO BUILD TO PACIFIC COAS1  Ottawa, Nov. 17.���Mackenzie and  Mann will apply at the next session of  parliament for permission to extend  the Canadian Northern railway from  Edmonton to the Pacific coast and to  build from Strathcona to Calgary, from  Regina to the international boundary  line, from Athabasca and Macleod  river to the headwaters of the Macleod,  and from Saskatoon to south Saskatchewan river.  The average width of the veins  proper at Cobalt, Ontario, is from two  to six inches. In certain mines the  vein is filled with i'.n immensely rich  silver ore containing generally silver,  cobalt, nickel and arsenic in various  combinations. In some places the silver is deposited in its native state and  the whole vein will be one slab of native silver from two to three inches  _th ick^andji-pm^ t wclJcl JdJir ^teet j*l  diameter.  The ores of Cobalt, Ontario, are  frequently grown together. Arsenides  of cobalt aud nickel, for example, have  native silver intimately mixed with  them; at other times there is almost  massiye smaltite or niccolite Some  of the veinlets which form junctions  with the larger veins contain much  to silver in various forms. The chloan-  thite occurs characteristically in small  spheroidal masses in calcite.  Four hundred and forty thousand  pounds of copper and tin, mainly copper, were used in the casting of the  greatest bell ever made, the Czar Kolo-  koi of Moscow, in 1733; it was about 19  feet in diameter and 19 fee* high.

Bileans have been called "a woman's  medicine" becaase of their exceptional  fitness for the various ailments peculiar to the sex, as well as for liver disorders and stomach ailments generally.  Unlike most liver and stomach medicines, Bileans' coutains no bismuth,  mercury or any mineral whatever.  From coating to kernal they an: purely  vegetable,  Mrs. AS. Whitfield, of Swan Lake  (Man.), says: ' Bileans have done me  a wonderful amount of good. I can  hardly describe how bad 1 felt before  . took them. I could not eat but that  it caused pain. There was a constant  sensation of tightness in mj' side, and  my liver was entirely out of older. I  could not sleep at nights, suffered also  from kidney trouble, and was altogether in a rundown and very serious condition. I had been ailing in this way  for years, audit is gratifying to find  that Bileans were equal to my case."  Mis. Wm. Hall of Dean Lake, says:  "I have proved Bileans very good for  constipation, from which I suffered a  great-leal.    They cured me."  Mrs. J. H. Thompson of Cleveland  Park, a.-iys:. "For irregularities and  painful periods I can highly recommend Bileans. They proved a great  blessing to me and restored ine to  health when I had become very ill and  very despondent."  Bileans are absolutely unequalled for  female ailments and irregularities,  constipation, piles, anaemia, debility,  rheumt'ttsm, blood impurities, etc.  They tone up the system and enable it  to throw off colds and chills, strengthen  girls just emerging into womanhood,  and speedily restore energy and  strength to those who are run down.

Probably the only occurrence of native  lead in the United States is at Franlin  Furnace, New Jersey, where a few  specimens have been found, showing  the metal in small grains.  Some idea of what Sir William  Henry Perkin has done for the coal  tar industry may be gathered from the  fact that now 420,000 men are employed  thtoughout the world in manufacturing valuable products from what was  once considered worthless, and that the  coal tar products of Germany alone are  sold for 550,000,000 a year.
