DEPARTMENT  OF MINES  e  * I'mwmfffiUMUHB i  earance Sale  Men's and Boys'  Furnishings  We have decided to clear out our entire stock  of Men's and Boys' Furnishings, to accomplish our end quickly, we will reduce our  prices on these lines, to less than mau-  ufactu rers prices.    Don't _ miss this  opportunity  of  purchasing' first  ciass goods at discounts vary  ing from  Thirty to Sixty Per Cent.

ENDELL&CO  Men's  Goods  It has been common practice iu  the district to measure everything-  in the raining industry in the  Boundary by what the great  Granby company did or achieved.  In fact, the other mining and  smelting concerns in the district  have in the past been too prone,  we believe, to take their cue from  the Granby people. This has  not always inured to the benefit  of the home concerns, and we are  glad to observe that a new order  of things has come, we trust to  stay. -'. A .  For nearly or quite a month  the B. C. Copper Co. has been  able to carry on work at mines  and smelter under conditions- that  have closed every large mine and  smelter in the country. It has  been able to do this because its  management has been effective.  When- the trouble came in the  coal mines, and other smelters  were obliged to close because of  want of fuel, the B. C. Copper  Co. found itself not only possessed of coke sufficient to enable  it to carry on the works of the  smelter, but also had coal enough  stored to be able to supply the  Canadian Pacific with fuel to operate its ore trains to the company's plant.  And so it has happened, that  while the mines at Plioenix have  been closed, and the smelters at  Grand Forks and Boundary Falls  silent, the force at the Mother  Lode has been kept busy and the  smelting plant has kept its two  big furnaces in commission.  Gratifying as this isto the citizens of Greenwood, the fact is  not paraded as in any sense reflecting on the other companies,  or as a jubilation over the misfortune whicti came so suddenly  to the other camps, but as a tribute to the business sagacity of  the company that by its solitary  maintenance of normal conditions  has proved its superiority.  VISIT OF MR. DENNIS  N'T  TRUST  YOUR    WATCH  IN THE HANDS OF AN INEXPERIENCED PERSON. IF THERE IS SOMETHING  WRONG WITH IT BRING IT TO A  PRACTICAL WATCHMAKER. OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  0URW0RK IS GUARANTEES  A. LOGAN & C����  Copper Street Greenwood  -a  Hew  spring  (foods  Call and see them.  W.ELSON  We hope that the visit this week of  Mr. J. S. Dennis, of the C. P. R. land  dcpariment^may^result^in^something.  g-ood for Greenwood. ���  The mixed ownership of so many  lots on the flat by the townsite people  and the C. P. R. Co. is not in the  town's best interest. Each party owns  part of each block. If some arrangement were made whereby entire blocks  were in single ownership some arrangement might be effected whereby  blocks could be cleared and leased for  a term of years on a basis profitable to  all concerned.  The flat will soon be a wilderness  again under present management  when a large part of it might at least  be an alfalfa field, or potato patch,  under proper conditions.  It would appear much better for the  town, and better, too, for the owners  who pay the taxes, if some arrangement such as we suggest were carried  out and acreage put on the market at  a price men could afford to purchase  at, or even leased on low rental for a  term of years. The first thing we  know, if matters are allowed to stand  as now, some enterprising person will  be staking the whole flat for a timber  limit, so rapid has been the growth  thereon, since first cleared, or rather  last cleared, a dozen years ago.  GILLESPIE VS. SINCLAIR  In the case of Gillespie vs. Sinclair,  held before Judge Brown last Saturday,  A. M. Whiteside prosecuting, and J. P.  McLeod defending, the judge allowed  Sinclair out on   his own recognizance.  This was an action for obtaining  money under false pretense, Mrs. Gillespie, the plaintiff, claiming that she  loaned the defendant a sum of money  on his representation of owning valuable farm lands, which she had since  learned was not true. Sinclair's evidence went to show that he owned the  lands, while other witnesses discredited  their value.  A Comprehensive Report on Minimr  Industries of Canada.  In view of the numerous requests  from this country and from abroad  for information on the mining and  metallurgical industries of Canada,  and the need of such a publication to  bring the mining and ���metallurgical  industries of the .Dominion in :touch  with the newly created Department of  Mines, the minister? Hon. W. Templeman, has authorized the collection of  authentic and reliable information for  a report on "The Mining and Metallurgical Industry of Canada." This  report will cover the whole country,  and will give the following information :  Name of company, date of incorporation and charter, authorized capital,  value of shares, directors and officers,  head office, Canadian office, number of  men employed, wages, transportation  facilities, market and prices, and tlie  following additional in formation regarding the mining industry:  Mining land-owned and controlled  (province, township, concession, lot),  class and character of ore mined,  average, quality of ore (analysis),  method of mining,treatnieiit of ore, if  any, cost of mining (drilling, explos  iyes, hoisting, transportation, genjral  expenses), total cost, per ton of ore  raised? and for the metallurgical industry:  Location of plant, ore treatei, quality of product, method of treatment,  description of machinery' and apparatus used, source of supply ��� of-"raw  material, composition of riw material,  cost of production.  It is proposed to report on lv upon  producing mines, mines under development, and established metallurgical  plants. \The present rapid progress in  the development of these industries  and the changing conditions regarding  such factors as labor, market and  prices, will necessitate supplementary  annual publications to bring the information of the original report up to  date until the changes and new material call for the issucance of a complete new report.  It is hoped that those in charge of  the mines and industries to be reported  upon will furnish every facility to  representatives of the Department of  Mines, for obtaining such full and  accurate data as will render the report  authoritative and useful.  THE TIP-TOP BOUGHT  The Local Syndicate Who  Bonded  PUT DP. THE COLD CASH  THINGS DOING  Strikes   everywhere  and  in   almost  every line of labor.  The  Montreal dock  laborers  claim  that they will make no compromise.  Last Friday the Deal Was Hosed and  a Fine Property Passes  Into New Hands.  Sir Thomas Shaugntssy approves of  the contemplated quick trans-Atlantic  service.  ���A movement is on foot among the  miners in Atlin to expel all Japanese  from the district. (.  SUMMER.EXCURSION^RATES EAST  On June 6, 7 and 8 the Canadian Par  cific Railway will sell at Rossland and  Ne'son, with corresponding rates from  all Kootenay points, first-class round  trip tickets 'to all Eastern Canadian  and United States points.  Rates to Winnipeg, Port Arthur, St.  Paul, Duluth, Sioux City, S52 SO; St.  Louis, S60; Chicago, 364; Toronto,  $78 50; Ottawa, $82.55; Montreal, S84;  St. John, $94; Halifax, $101.50.  Tickets are good for three months to  stop ever west of Fort William or St-  Paul. Good via New York. Recognized direct route. Good via lake  routes, including meals and berths on  Canadian Pacific lake steamers or good  to go on one of these routes and return  another. For rates to any point and  berth reservation, standard or tourist  sleepers or lake steamers, apply to local  agents orJT. S. Carter, D. P. A., Nelson.  WILL WORK INJURY  The partial destruction of the Ingram bridge by the freshet will work  considerable injury to the district.  Being on the highway between all  points west (if Midway, it will seriously  hamper travel, especially as there is no  other bridge available for miles for  crossing the Kettle river, and the water  is too high to permit of fording. Ore  hauling from the West Fork will be  entirely suspended for some time as it  will doubtless be some months before  the bridge can be repaired. This is  particularly annoying to the Sally and  Duncan people, both of whom have  ore piled up for .shipment.  TIIE BANK OF MONTREAL  The report of the Bank of Montreal  for the half year ending April 30 last,  is full of figures calculated to stir the  pride of those interested in Canada and  Canadian institutions.  The splendid management of this,  the third largest bank iti the world, as  well as the prosperous condition of  Canada, are reflected in the figures  published.  The bank's profits for the half year  are, in rouud numbers, one million  dollars, after deducting all bad and  doubtful debts.  Iu addition to administering its own  funds of 525,000,000, including capita  and rest, the bank is entrusted with  the care of $1*10,000,000 of the peoples'  money. Of this immense resource, the  greater part is used in Canada, the  loans in Great Britain and the United  States being only S.^7,000,000.  The business man must find great  assurance in the wonderful management of this grjat monetary institution. Beyond that, the patriotic instinct is stirred by the reflection that a  nation of six millions of people has  within its borders this giant in the  financial world.  Some months ago Mr. H. V.  Fuller, acting on behalf of a local syndicate, took up a bond on  the Tip-Top at a figure reported  to be $10,000.  During the winter considerable  development has been done on  the property. A shaft has been  sunk 75 feet and a flue body of  high grade ore opened up. At  the bottom of the shaft the vein  is 14 inches wide.  Last Friday the bondholders  exercised their rights to purchase  and took up the property.  The Tip-Top has long been  considered one of the very best  claims on the east hill. It is  separated from the Bay by only  one claim? the. Mavis, and the  vein appears continuous through  the three claims. It is reported  that the Bay and Tip-Top interests will be consolidated. If so,  the company will own the finest  property in the district. While  consolidation is goingon it would  seem to be a pity that the Mavis  were not included iu the group.  The development of any one of  these properties goes far to prove  the other two, and the three could  be worked under one management  in the interest of all.  The three claims would contain  about 125 acres, of proved value,  and worked under one administration would develop into a great  property. The Mavis and Tip-  Top reach . from the Bay to the  crest of the hill, and a tunnel  run from the Bay would have a  long continuous vein of high  grade ore to work upon.  iiffflNG HIGH PLACES.  No. yr%%  THE SDPREMECOE  The Case of James A. Dale,  of Carmi,  FOR THE MURDER OF CELL  The new Labor Act is to be applied  in the settlement of the longshoremen  strike in Montreal.  The Milwaukee road recently paid a  fine of S20,000 imposed ou it for rate  cutting to a spice company.  ' The Winnipeg lumber dealers have  given lumber another b< ost, marking  the price up S3 to S4 per thousand.  Seattle is getting ready for the 23rd  International Christian Endeavor convention in Jtily, and expects 20,000  visitors.  And now it is an oil refinery with a  daily .capacity of between 1,000 and  2,000 barrels that Vancouver has in  sight.  In order to secure money the city of  Winnipeg has been compelled to pay  the Bank of Scotland almost 8 per cant  interest. : v  ��� The Regina taxpayers won a recent  victory for municipal ownership by  voting down the proposed gas franchise to private people.  Only one-ninth of the Doukhabors  have decided to become Canadian citizens and take homesteads. Most of  them prefer the reserve idea, all the  same Indians'. Their decision throws  1,618 parcels of land open to settlement  by those who want to be Canadians.  Construction work on the Grand  Trunk Pacific in New Brunswick has  begun. The first sod was turned with  out any ceremony recently a few miles  above Edmunston on division 5. This  contract is held by Lyons & White,  who have sublet it in small sections.  Work was also begun at two other  points nearer. Grand Falls. The en  gineer iu charge is Mr. Longley. Deep  snow in the woods prevents construction of the Moncton-Chipman section,  but it is expected that operations will  be commenced in a short time.  HOME PRODUCT  It looks as if speculation in western  lands is likely to become less popular  this year. For five years it has been  most profitable, and the prices have in  many cases gone beyond all reason.  Land ia Edmonton is selling higher  than in Toronto. The former has 11,000  inhabitants; the latter 300,000. A recession is due. The banks will arrest  the progress by refusing to lend any  more money, and the west was never  so shortof capital, in comparison to its  needs, as it is to-lay. Unless all signs  fail, western lands will be cheaper in  many cases two years from today than  at the present moment.           ATsmait young m-.n went to a western town recently and started buying  and selling lots, dealing only with real  estate agents. He wandered backward  and forward among them, selling a lot  here, buying one there. Like the  gypsy, he always kgot something "to  boot." In a few weeks he cleaued up  ten thousand dollars and headed back  to the east. He played with the fire,  but managed to get away before he  was burned.  Not that'the west will stop its progress, of course���only speculation will  be hampered. Genuine expansion and  development will proceed as usual.  The high prices of today simply mean  that the future is being heavily discounted.���Canadian Courier.  AFTER THEM  The B. C. Gazette announces that the  government will give a bounty of $7.50  for every panther, $5 for every wolf  and ?2 for every coyote killed within  the province, such bounty to be paid  on a certificate of a justice of the  peace that such animals were killed by  the persons claiming the bounty, and  the skins produced.  Now, if the government Will add to  that a bounty of about 30 cents for the  scalp of the man that exploits wild  cats, knowing them as such, it would,  of course, be paying more for the  scalps than it is worth, but it would  tend to rid the country of a most mischievous varmint.  The new power plant at the falls  below town is in operation and the new  light is an improvement- on the old.  The energy from the new source was  turned on Sunday night last, and none  too soon, as the old light had grown to  be a most dismal affair. Whether the  hour for making the change was the  cause of it or not, we cannot say, but  during the hours of church service on  Sund.-iy evening the lights entirely  failed, and services were concluded  with the light of kerosene. The improvised lamps, in some instances,  were rather foul from disuse and an  inhabitant of Mara dropping in to  some of the churches would have  thoughf^the^devotee^w"ere=bWm"Bg'  incense.  ELECTIC MINE LANTERN  The Hubbell electric lantern consists  of an alkaline storage battery in a steel  case; sizes, 3 inches square by <j]4  inches high; weighs 5 pounds; reflector  contains a special incandescent lamp  bulb on patented supports, all protected  from .dust and water, furnishing a  strong, steady 4 caudle power light for  12 hours on one charge. The lanterns  are connected to the electric service  line in the evening for charging, and  are readv for use iu the morning without any further attention They require no more skill to operate than do  flame lamps, and need to be opened  only once in a fortnight. A special  form of nut prevents the cover from  being opened without a special tool.,  There are no liquids to ship, as the  materials for filling the battery are  caustic soda (a solid) and water. The  use of the alkaline solution make the  lantern odorless, free from corrosive  liquids and vapors, and Keeps all parts  and connections bright and clean ,  The Lantern is uninjured by overcharge of current, reversal of current,  complete exhaustion, long rest in any  condition, or an attempt to charge on  alternating current.���Mining World.  Is Heard Before Justice Clement on  Thursday.--Evidence for Crown  in and Adjournment Taken.  The assizes of the Supreme court  were opened on Wednesday morning  last, by Judge Clement.  The grand jury was comprised of  John R. Jackson, farmer, Midway;  Wallace O. Wright, gentleman, Rock  Creek; James N. Paten? gentleman,  Greenwood; Edwin Hallett, upholsterer, Greenwood; Charles H. Fair, merchant, Greeuwood; William L. G. Gordon, metallurgist, Greenwood; Leonard  B. Hodge, electrician, Greenwood, Neil  H. Lamont, agent, Greenwood, Richard G. Sidley, farmer, Sidley; James  A. Russell, merchant, Greenwood; Jas.  McArdle, broker, Grand Forks; John  W. Rutherford, transfer prop., Grand  Forks; Peter T. |McGallum,insurance  agent, Grand Forks.      ' -  Mr. W. L, G. Gordon was chosen  foreman.. The jury;was instructed by  the justice as to their duties and prerogatives and provided with the list of  causes to be tried and retired. ;  On return to the court the jury presented true bills in the two murder  cases of Dale and Rayelli, and requested time for further investigation.  The Dale case was the first called  and on request of the defendant's attorney, J. P. McLeod, the crown prosecutor, A. M. Whiteside, not objecting,  the case was adjourned until Thursday  morning at 10 o'clock.  On the reopening ot court on Thursday morning, Mr. McLeod for the defence renewed his objection of the day  before as lo the manner of selection of  the jury. He claimed that Yale was  one judicial district, and that Sheriff  Kerman had only jurisdiction over the  Grand Forks and Greenwood electoral  districts, and that a jury selected from  that part of the county was not a jury  the prisoner was entitled to, namely, a  jury from the entirecounty in which  there we're several sheriffs."  The objection was overruled, the  judge holding that a jury selected by  the sheriff from his particular part of  the county was a properly constituted  jury to try the cause.  The following jury was then ernpan-  nelled and the trial proceeded with:  Harry A. Slieads, foreman; Charles  Mellville, Murdoch McLeod, Edward  Ripetto, George Swayne, David Good,  Charles Summers, Scott McRae, J. C.  Castlemann, J. D. Graham, Robert  Dempster, Jas. A. Hickey.  Although Joseph Cell and Pete  Gaudreau were both victims of TJUle's  rifle on the evening of October 14th  last, the crown elected the case of the  former as that on which to try the prisoner, James A. Dale.  The witnesses were largely those examined at the preliminary investigation, and the evidence materially the  same.  The facts were brought out that considerable driiiking-;ha<l  been, indulged  in, at and about Dale's ho-el early in  the evening preceding the tragedy,  aud that a quarrel had arisen between  the Frenchmen and Dale about a rifle,  with the theft of which they charged  Dale. During the altercation the deceased, Cell, hit Dale over the head  with the butt of the gun, whose possession he had secured.  The case for the crown being all in,  the altornej- for the defense asked for  the adjournment of the case until Friday morning, in the hope that certain  witnesses expected by the evening's  stage might arrive. The request was  granted, and the case will be resumed  at 10 o'clock on Friday morning.  WORDS OF PRAISE  TO  BE TESTED  Immigration returns show that during the nine months ending March  last? there were constant arrivals.  British Columbia got two thousand  more thau the maritime provinces,  double what Saskatchewan got. and  five times more than Alberta. The  only provinces which exceeded British  Columbia, were Manitoba, Quebec and  Ontario, the latter being highest on  the list.  The value of th2 Industrial Disputes  Act is likely to be thoroughly tested  on Texada island. The mine owners  have decided to commence criminal  prosecution of the men under the act.  and the mine workers, with the financial backing of the Western Federation, will resist it. The test will show  how severe a wrench the law will stand.  At the recent Canadian banquet it-  New York, Secretary Shaw in hia  speech said, among other things:  ���'Canada is a great country. In area  she is so large that I will not attempt  to define her borders. She possesses  resources exceeding the power of  enumeration and surpassing all estimation. The Canadians are a great  people, but in this presence it is needless to enlarge upon their virtues.  They are blessed with an excellent  government, the merits of which compare favorably with any and every  other. In addition, Canada is well  located on the map. She is situated iu  the best neighborhood with which God  ever blessed the earth, aud her nearest,  neighbor is her test friend.  "The last fifty years has witnessed a  development within the United States  unequalled iu the history of nations,  and I shall not be surprised if the next  half century shows developments  within Canadian borders quite as marvelous."

Timber is today being sought  for in this part of the country as  never before, and areas a few  years ago overlooked or considered valueless, are being seized  upon.  We expect that some' of our  young- men who are wandering  north and east, searching for  treasure, will exemplify the lines,  "they walked right in and turned  around, and walked right out  again."  0^>0<>0<K*H-><>0<>0<>000<>0<J-O<>00<>00  The words of the poet, that  "the world wants men," have  certainly come true. Mining  companies and railways are asking for them, advertising for  them as never before. The job  is looking for the man these days.  We have seen the time when men  sought for jobs that could not be  found, and we may see it again,  but we trust not.  Says It Is a Wonderful Healer and Does  More Than Is Claimed for It.  Probably no household remedy in  existence V.as won such glowing- tributes from people in hifrh places as has  Zam-Buk. Mr. Roger F. Perry, justice  of the peace for British Columbia, recently tested this famous balm, and  this is what he says of it:  "The Pavilion,  "Goldfields, B.C.  "To the Zam-Buk Co.:  "Gentlemen���After a very fair trial  I have proved Zam Bilk eminently sat��  isfactory. In my case it cured a skin  rash of. five-years standing- which no  doctor had been able to do any good  for.  "I would certainly encourage any  person to keep Zam-Buk in their home.

Zam-Buk differs from ordinary salves  and embrocations, for while these  mostly contain animal oils and fat,  Zam-Buk is purely herbal. It closes  and heals cuts, festering sores, ulcers,  eruptions, boils, eczema, dialing sores,  etc. In the household it is the handiest  possible remedy for burns, seals, children's injuries It instantly cleanses  any wound to which it is applied; prevents festering, inflammation or blood  poison. .It cures piles, varicose ulcers,  and fistula.

The conference arranged between the mine operators of the  district and the mine workers  took place at Phoenix on Monday  last. The question at issue was  thoroughly gone into, and on  Tuesday the three big companies  of the Boundary and the smelter  management made a joint wage  scale proposition to the men.  The proposition contained a  substantial advance in most lines  of mining work. It also included  the voluntary adoption of a  slighly increased scale for the  smelters should the mine proposition be accepted.  The proposed scale was posted  at all tho mines of the companies  but a copy of the same for comparison with the scale hitherto  prevailing is not at hand.  For this reason we are not in a  position to confirm or deny the  assertions of the workers that it  contains discriminations.  The proposition was submitted  to the different unions on Tuesday evening, but did not proi-e  acceptable. The difference between the scale offered and that  asked is not so wide, however,  that the two parties may not get  together to the benefit of all concerned. -  It is sincerely hoped that with j ���  ���  minor readjustment and conces-j The public is gratified to see  sious on both sides, a scale may j Justice Clement, in whom it feels  be agreed upon that will ensure i an especial pride, presiding over  lasting peace conditions to the J the supreme court now in session  industry and the district. here.  Who will accompany Mr. Borden in his proposed ocean to ocean  trip in the interests of his party?  We cannot form a conjecture and  we imagine the leader of the party  is himself in a quandary over the  matter. Time was when naturally  he would have wished Mr. Foster  with him, because, although as  cold-blooded as a mining expert,  and with none of the qualities  that draw men to him or his  standard, Mr. Foster is without  doubt unequalled in his party as  a platform debater. But around  Mr. Foster no halo of light sheds  even for his own party, much less  for the public, and Mr. Borden's  discriminating sense will hardly  elect Mr. Foster to rally the people to the Conservative standard.  He has always been fairly successful in overcoming his lack of  magnetic force by his brilliant  intellect. But he can scarcely  hope to do it longer, for the report of the Insurance Commission leaves a hitherto good reputation as a public man badly battered and out of joint.  Once upon a time Mr. Fowler  toured the west in the interests  of his party, but Mr? Borden will  hardly elect him, because he has  already made too many pilgrimages into the west in his own interest, and he has not intellectual  force^enough^to_hopeJ:o^gy^er^c^me  the suspicion which attaches to  himself, much less to assist his  leader in the rehabilitation of his  party. Aud so the question is,  who will it be?  The time was when the great  Conservative party could have  put several parties into the field  at once, each characterized by  magnatistn, intellectuality, eloquence and power.  But that day has passed, the  party that boasted of McDonald  and Tupper, and Tilley and  Thompson, and White, and a  host more of giants, is today so  poor in what goes to make men  impressive on theu platform, that  it must be a grave question for  the leader of the Conservatives  to decide on the personnel of his  party. It may be that after all,  he will be wise-enough  to  go it  The Longboat education fund,  promoted by the Toronto Globe,  grows very slowly. Rich Ontario seems better on shouting  than on digging up, and when  the citizens of Toronto had roared  themselves hoarse on Longboat's  return from his Marathon victory  they evidently thought they had  done enough. A heart throbbing  with good, red blood, is better  than lungs filled with air,  although the working of the latter makes more noise.  The Week is still hammering  away on what it calls the "Bank  Graft." It is all right to endeavor to keep home money for  home development, if conditions  are safe and sound? but the Week  appears to overlook one point,  aud that is that when the Victoria public entrusts the banks  with its surplus moneys, claimed  by it to amount to eighteen millions, those moneys become fiduciary funds for whose safe and  profitable use the banks are responsible, and that responsibility  iniplies the employment of the  funds wherever the discretion of  the bank's management thinks  most prudent.

Miss Martha Craig, an.Irish woman  who spent her childhood in the Glens  of Antrim, and who has done much  adventurous traveling in Labrador,  has recently been startling, not only  the scientific, but the non-scientific  world with the bold statement that Sir  Isaac Newton's theory on which the  laws of gravitation are based is altogether untenable.

A letter was also received later, but  full details of the transaction are not  yet to hand. The Rollo was located in  August, 1897, by Peter Scott, and is,  therefore, the oldest existing location  in Twenty-Mile camp, all other locations prior to that time having been  allowed to lapse. The Nickel Plate  was not located until a year later. Mr.  Scott disposed of several interests in  the property, but still retains a part  ownership. The other owners are Paul  Johnson and R. R.

Since last fall, Mr. E*. W. Beidler,  general manager for the Palmer  Mountain Tunnel Co., at Loomis, has  had his eye on a group of eight claims  on Five-Mile, in which our townsman,  F.M. Gillespie, is interested with a  couple of prospectors, Uhler and Cox.  The group consists of theBornite, Blue  Ridge, Gladstone, Roseberry, Shamrock, Productus, Belenmite and Right  of Way mineral claims; and have excellent copper showings. Mr. Beidler  made one trip in last fall but was delayed rather late and there was already  some snow on the ground. Last week-  he returned in company with George  Jamine, M. E., from Seattle, and they  proceeded to the camp on Five-Mile,-  where Messrs. Uhler and Cox are now  at work. On their way back they had  only a short time to stay and nothing  defiuite was ascertained as to what  progress had been niade in the negotiations. On his former visit Mr. Biedler  was favorably impressed, and his return in company with Mr. Jamine is  evidence that the group is attractive.  During the development work already  done, there has been ' considerable  sampling and testing of values, and  the results have been most encouraging, the. copper percentage being in  advance of most of the Boundary  properties that are now making big  money for their stockholders.--H>dley  Gazette; .

WASH.  g  News comes from St. Pierre, Miquel-  en, of what is believed to be one of the  greatest tragedies in the history of the  unfortunate French Colony  at the entrance of the Gulf of  St.  Lawrence.  Two fishing vessels carrying crews totalling 40  men,   are   believed   to have  gone to the   bottom   in  the storms of  April.    On April 3 Inst four schooners,  full manned,   left   St.   Pierre   for the  fishidg   banks.     Among   the   number  were the La  Blanche, Capt. Giraudin,  and Ste. Marie, Capt. Lafleme.    Since  then nothing   has   been   heard of the  two vessels or their crews.'   The  other  crafts  returned shortly  after the  departure, both having encountered   severe storms in which all their gear was  lost.    After effecting repairs  the ves  sels again   started   for  the banks, but  were a second time overcome by storms  and  were  compelled to return  to  St.  Pierre in a greatly damaged condition.  It is feared that  both  the "La Blanche  and  Ste.   Marie   foundered in  one of  these storms with all  hands.    If these  fears  are well  founded 40 men,  all of  whom were married, have perished.   It  is'said  that  100  children  will  be left  fatherless.    Scarcely a season   passes  without disaster overtaking the Erench  fishing ileet operating from St. Pierre.

"If Sir Wilfrid Laurier's visit to England has done nothing more than to  secure a fast steamship line on the  Atlantic that will bring England  within four days of Canada and Britain within twenty-four 'days of Australia, he will have accomplished a  great work.

"I had chronic  constipation  for ii ve |  years," says Mrs. M O'Byrneof Agnes I  street, Toronto.    "It brought on headaches and dizzy bouts,  ;��nd robbed nie I  of health aud vitality.    I spent a lot of j  money in trying various  useless renie  dies. At last   I  tried   ihe   right  one-1  Bileans���and thej- cured me.  One of the finest scientific papers iu  the world (Science Siftings), says of  Bileans in this connection: "They cine  constipation without causing griping  and do not cause after-constipation, as |  other purgatives do."  Piles, debility, anemia, indigestion,  billiousness, heartburn, headache, and  female ailments all disappear before a  short course of Bileans.

On previous celebration occasions  Greenwood has been marked by the  fairness of its sports and the generous  spirit of its home contestants. We  trust that the present event will not  differ from the past in these regards-.  PROGRAM OF EVENTS  Prepared for  Friday and  Saturday  GOOD SPORT IN EVERY LINE  GALLOWAY BROS.  The Catholic Ladies' aid will give a  ball and supper in the Reliance hall on  June 12th.  The hotels are all crowded. The  sitting of the supreme court and the  celebration event are responsible for  this condition.  Don't overlock the grand athletic  event in the Auditorium on Saturday  evening next.  Judge Brown, by invitation, occupied  a seat on the bench with Justice Clement Wednesday morning.  T. A. Harris, from Durham, Ontario  is to be the officer in charge of the  customs at Chapaca.  The Mainland Board of Fire Insurance Underwriters is busy on a revision of Greenwood rates. We think we  have good ground, with our water supply and means of protection, to expect  a substantial cut in the price now  charged.  Thomas Gullcy, who has given unremitting attention to business for  years, is prepariup, to take the summer  off. He will go into the wilderness of  the Skeena, and possibly across into  the Peace river country, before his re  turn.  W. Latighton of the Midway Star,  was a Greenwood visitor last Saturday.  He thinks the big French - olony around  and west of Midway as likely to mature, but holds gtave doubts about the  Great Northern building up to Greenwood this year.  The Following Events Are Scheduled  and the Prizes Given Will  Insure Good Sport.

Thomas Hemmerle, Frank Mosher  and David Juries have started for the  Stewart lake country.   i  Owing to the absence of the rector,  there will b : no services in St. Jude's  church Sunday next.  The Kettle river is running bank  full at Midway, and some slight damage is being reported.  H. Bullock Webster has been in town  during the week giving his personal  attention to the Dale case.  The ball park is in fine condition  and we look to see some fine baseball  there in the next two days.  The funeral of little Dorothy Jenks,  who was drowned in Providence creek,  took place on Saturday last.  Al the Presbyterian church, Sabbath  evening next, the pastor will preach a  special sermon to young men.  There will be some good horse racing  during the holidays, judging from some  preliminary canters we have observed.  Mr, C. B. Bash haabeen transplanted  into Cobalt soil. That Mr. Drummond  isn't overlooking the Boundary is certain.  The baseball team have accepted an  invitation to go to Oroville on July 4th.  We look to the boys to line up that day  and play ball.  The evidence in the Dale case was  brief and pointed, neither attorney in  the case appearing disposed to quibble  or delay proceedings.  Ihe rapid rise of Boundary creek  Sunday last caused grave but apparently needless alarm to some of the  dwellers on Gold street.  One of the waiters in the Ladysmith  hotel was quite seriously hurt on Wednesday last by the falling of part of  the dining-room ceiling.  R. Gardom, customs officer at Midway, was a guest at the Imperial this  week. He had just returned from Chapaca, where a customs office has been  opened.  Word comes that considerable damage has been done to roads and. bridges  by the recent rise of water. The Ingram bridge, between Midway and  Rock Creek, suffered heavily.  Ralph Stokes of Johannesburg, who  is making a tour of the Globe in the  interests of the Mining World of Chicago, is now iu Greenwood to write up  the Boundary for his journal.  Although a jury was quickly secured  in the case befoie court Thursday, a  number were peremptorily challenged.  The list held out, however, until the  required number was secured.  Mr. P. Hickey, an old-timer, left  yesterday to stake some claims in the  Cobalt country. Pat will find the vacant ground, if there is any left, and  be back in Greenwood in the early fall.  The cafe opened in the Commercial  hotel about a month ago, had a short  existence, the proprietors quietly leaving town the first of the week to the  regret of several trusting ones who  put up supplies without the precaution  to pull down the equivalent in cash.  PAY ORE COLUMN  Some very fine ore is coming  out of  the Butterfly, on Cranberry creek.  An electric hoist will be installed on  the Tip-Top at once -ind the work of  development vigorously carried on.  Watch for a big mine up there.  There is more inquiry for mining  properties at present than at any time  for years.  It is reported that work will be presently resumed on the No., 7, in Central  Camp.  The Johannesburg is looking good.  In addition to the formerly known lE-ads  on the property, the bondholders are  working on a new, nice-looking high  grade vein.  1 p. m., Recreation Grounds  Base Ball Tournament  1st Price SlOO, 2nd $75.
