BECOMING PRECIOUS  Copper Becoming  a Precious Metal  GAN A SUBSTITUTE HE HAD1:  1   IN THE HANDS OF AN INEXPERTENC-  I   ED PERSON.    IE THERE IS SOMETHING-  WRONG   WITH   IT   BRING   IT   TO   A  PRACTICAL     WATCHMAKER.       OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  ��UR WORK IS G^ARAMTSEB  L0GAN &C<  Copper Street  Greenwood  E$F  :=JS  COPPER STREET  Sir        ���  GREEN WOO  dFH  FACTS ABOUT  A New York Journal Discusses the Situation and Its Conclusions Are Favorable to Higrli Price ot" Metal  The Street Railway Journal of  New York, in a. lengthy article  discusses the copper situation and  points out tliat slight causes may  result in considerable fluctuations  in price. Some of that paper's  remarks on the subject are herewith quoted from the Rossland  Miner:  "Unless. ... copper i- more  freely mined than now, or the demand for it is checked by the use  of substitutes, the price may remain Very sensitive to minor  causes of fluctuation. Copper is  very widely distributed, and many  new mines are being- opened,  which, if thej* should produce  largely, wonM have a considerable effect upon the market.  There is great danger, however,  that unless some remarkably rich  and accessible mines are developed, the production will remain  at a point where manipulation of  the market will be too easy. Such  a condition would be most disastrous in its effect on the industries that utilize large amounts  of the metal, for they could never  depend "on stable prices. In the  electrical industries the possibility that copper might at any time  be pushed to 30 cents per pound  would be very serious in planning  for deliveries. The matter of  substitutes for ..copper, therefore,  becomes very important.  "For- electrical machinery as  such no substitute seems to be  available, since copper stands  alone in its conductivity for unit  volume'," "save for silver, an impossible substitute. But lines, as  we have, time and again noted,  can very well, be made.of aluminum. "When the Basic patents  expire in a few years there will  be a greal reduction in price, aud  the battle with copper will be  fairly on. We have before now-  discussed the use of iron conductors, chiefly as rails. At present,  conditions are not far off iu which  stranded iron cables maybe used  for direct-current service at a  good profit. Heavy they certainly  are, but they are likewise strong  and cau do good service when the  price permits."  ^=A-t���one-seven th=-or--one-eighth=  the conductivity of copper, the  writer thinks that economic advantage would be on the side of  iron if copper should advance but  a little more in price. In subways and on elevated structures  aud in conduits filled with insulating compounds iron can even  now be used to advantage. A  general increase of working voltage is also desirable, to decrease  the demand for copper. A new  line going in at 40,000 voits instead of 20,000, or at 60,000 instead of 40,000, means a great  saving with copper around 25  cents per pound. The rise in  that metal, the writer says, "has  queered all calculations based on  old prices."    He goes on to say:  "Perhaps the rise in price may  be of service to the world in revising antiquated methods and  putting electrical distribution on  a better basis of voltage. In the  same way it will at the present  rate soon be pertinent to inquire  whether machines should not be  redesigned. To a certain extent  copper and iron are interchangeable in the design, and by extreme care in ventilation, it,,is  feasible considerably to reduce  the amount of copper required.  " The     present     exigency    is  hardly enough to produce at once  such radical  changes, but a con-  I tinuance or present  conditions is  bound to bring them about."  The, Greenwood Board of Trade has just issued a large edition of a circular, setting forth  concisely the Boundary district and its resources. The Board has departed from the usual course of  advertising, and in telling modestly and conservatively about itself has dealt liberally with the entire  district, of which it is the centre. We think the Board has done wisely in this, and we feel sure the  district will commend its public spirit and the measure of fairness displayed.  A map of the district covers the last page of the circular and was loaned for the purpose by  the Phoenix Pioneer.  We quote from the circular :  The Boundary district derives  its name from Boundary creek,  which flows into the Kettle river  at Midway, near the International  line.  It is a mining region largely.  The district has been fairly well  prospected, but tlie part as yet  actively producing i-* very small.  A strip of country, ten miles  north and south and fifteen miles  east and west, comprises the present producing area. Within this  small area are the towns of Greeuwood, Grand Porks and Phoenix ;  Greenwoodiu the valley of Boundary creek, Grand Forks iu the val-  lew of the Kettle river, and Phoenix oil the divide between these  valleys.  The altitude of Grand Forks is  about ,1,900 feet, of Greenwood  2,400, and of Phoenix 4,500.  -    �� CLIMATE.  The climate of the entire district is remarkably good the year  round. The winters of Greenwood and Grand Forks are about  four months long, while those of  Phoenix are somewhat longer,  though not severe. There is little excessive heat in summer, little excessive cold in winter, very  little wind, uo cyclones, and few  electrical storms.  The country generally is well  -watered, and the stenery beautiful.  FRUIT  CAPABILITY.  Around Grand Forks a magnificent farm and fruit district.has  been' developed in a few years.  There are thousands of acres of  these lauds available, and within  a few, years past manr hundreds  of acres have been planted to  fruit, for which, soil and climate  are ideal. As yet irrigation has  not been generally introduced  here, but with development will.  West of Greenwood, beginning  at Midway, about eight miles distant, the Kettle valley again  widens, and for many miles presents a most charming landscape.  Thousands of acres of this valley aud adjacent bench lauds are  admirably adapted for fruit, as  proven by the few orchards now  in cultivation.  ��� Irrigation is now being applied  in this district by individuals aud  corporations. One company, the  ;'- '-"KeTtl e^VslleyTf r i ga te\l~~Fr it i f  Lands," has now a large acreage  on the market. Seven thousand  fruittrees were planted thisspriug  in the vicinity of Midway,  TRANSPORTATION..  The district has beeu fairly  well provided for iu ths matter of  transportation facilities.  The Canadian Pacific and Great  Northern railways are both extended into Grand Forks, Phoenix and Midway. The former  road only has thus far built into  Greenwood, although the Great  Northern has beeu surveyed up  the valley of Boundary creek,  passing through Greenwood.  From Midway, Greeuwood interests are promoting a railway  up the West Fork, a wonderfully  rich mineral section, aud one possessing fine agricultural and timber lauds. The road has been  heavily subsidized by both Federal   and  Dominion parliaments,  At least two other large concerns are planning to enter the  field. The Consolidated Mining  aud Stneltingconipany of Canada  (Ltd.), has already acquired large  holdings near Phoenix, while a  syndicate with ample means has  bonded a group of claims aggregating several hundred acres,  west of Greenwood.  Several smaller companies, syndicates, and individuals are developing many other promising  properties.  Opportunity yet remains for  those capable of promoting large  enterprises.    Groups of very good  and work thereon is looked for in!claims are yet attainable  in sev-  the uear future.  ��� MINING AND SMELTING.  In the 150 square miles of territory previously referred to, three  large mining companies, the  Granby, B. C. Copper and Dominion, are operating mines and  smelters.  The Granby employs about %0  men, the B. C. Copper about 500,  and the Dominion about 500.  Around Greenwood there are  several small high grade mines  that employ about 200 men, while  the Snowshoe, at Phoenix, employs about 75. The average  monthly wage of these men is  about S100. At present there is  a scarcity of miners and laborers  in all the camps.  The chief mines of the Granby  and Dominion are at Phoenix,  those of the B. C. Copper atToiit  2}4 miles west of Greenwood and  eral places, at reasonable  prices.  Since this district described,  about the equal in area of four  townships, first began shipping  seven years ago, it has marketed  325,000,000 worth of the metals,  and with present prices maintained the 1(J07 output will crowd  the 310,000,000 mark for the year.  The productive area is gradually widening, and new camps  are opening up in localities not  far remote.  POWER  USED.  The pi ants of all the companies  are modern, and well equipped,  and everywhere electricity is the  motive power, the same being  brought over mountain ranges,  from Bonnington Falls, S5 miles  away, at a cost of about 335 per  horse power per annum.  THE TOWNS.  The  towns  are  are well   pro-  ground except where crossing any  road or trail, in which case it will  be buried six to twelve inches.  The-above to be installed in  workmanlike ond satisfactory manner for the sum of $327, Should  council wish to have all pipes  buried, contractor will have no.objection to them sending out a  laborer, and no extra charge will  be made for laying pipe in ditch  excavated by said laborer.  For galvanized iron   pipe  add 2  cents per foot, in all 2,000 feet.  Respectfully submitted,  E. W. Bishop.  On motion of Aldermen Desrosier and Nelson, the estimate was  accepted, work to be commenced  at once, galvanized iron to be used  and a laborer to be furnished by  by city to dig trench. The pipe  will belaid twelve inches beneath  the surface of the ground.  The question of city property  held under tax sale was referred  to city solicitor.  AT OROVILLE  The Greenwood baseball team scored  well at Oroville on the 4th. The boys  captured two out of the three games  playtd in the tournament.  BIG OUTPUT  Last week was to date the high water  mark for Boundary ore treatment. The  local smelters treated slightly over and  the Granby slightly under 19,000 tous,  making the week's district total 38,000  tons.  CROW'S NEST COAL  The story is afloat, and apparently  believed, that J J. Hill, in connection  with J. P, Graves, has secured control  of the Crow's Nest Pass coal mites.  What lends confirmation to the story  is the fact that the Cananian Pacific  has contracted for all the coal and the  local smelters for all the coke of the  International company. That looks as  if the coal of the big company would  go to the Great Northern; and the coke  to theGranby.  CAN'T GROW ROSES?  at Summit, north of Greenwood.'}vfdecl with schools, fraternal socie  Summit camp is served  by both  lines of railway.  The Granby's big smelter plant  of 3,000 tons daily capacity is at  Grand Forks, the B. C.'s of 1.S00  tous at Greenwood? and the Dominion's of 1,500 tons on Boundary creek, about 2}^ miles below  Greenwood.     . ;i  The Boundary made a beginning in mining in 1900, in that'  year mining and reducing less  than. 100,000 tons In each succeeding year the output has increased. In PJ06 the tonnage was  over 1,250,000. .For the week  ending July 5th, 1907, 3S,000 tons  were reduced in the three district  smelters. .  The ore bodies are  very large,  but of low grade, averag-ihg~~be-  tween 35.00 and 36 00 to the tou.  The ore is cheaply mined and  easily smelted, being self-fluxing.  The world's record for cheap  mining and smelting is claimed  for tiie��� Boundary. A net profit  of about 32.50 per ton is realized  from the ore.  ties? churches and banking institutions. All are electric-lighted.  Nearly every line of business is  represented, although there are  good openings for small industries.  Branches of the Banks of Montreal, Canadian Bank of Commerce and British North America  are at Greeuwood; of the Eastern  Townships at Grand Forks, Phoenix and Midway; of the Royal  Bank and British America Trust  company at Grand Forks.  Phoenix has no bonded debt,  Greenwood a light one, aud  Grand Forks a somewhat heavier.  In newspapers we have the  ���' Times " aud " Ledge " at Greenwood, the "Gazette" and '��� Sun"  -atrGraiid^F-orksrth e~ '-Pioneer���  at Phoenix, and the '"Star" at  Midway���all weeklies.  The Boundary's present specialties are great ore deposits,  magnificent climate, good water  aud cheap transportation.  To these the district is fast  adding a wealth of fruit lands.  If anyone tells you again that roses  won't perfect in this climate, refer  them to the Captain Christy , in ?Mr.  W. F. Proctor's garden. Although the  bush has been out only a year, and was  entirely unprotected during the winter,  a large number of perfect roses have  already been taken from it, and over a  score yet remain on the bush, although  it is only about 18 inches high.

At the meeting of the city council Monday evening, there wore  present Mayor Bunting and Aldermen Desrosiers, Nelson, Sullivan  and Sutherland. Minutes ,of previous meeting read and adopted.  Communications were read from  the city clerks of Grand Forks,  Rossland and Plioenix, stating the  amount charged for transient traders licenses in those cities, the former being S25 and the two latter  $50 each for six months. As none  of the petitioners, asking for  an increase in the liceuse, ap-;  peared before the council, these [  communications were ordered filed  and the license fee to transient-  traders stands as heretofore.  The clerk read the semi-annual  statement of receipts and expenditures. This caused some discussion. Alderman Desrosier wanted  light in reference to extra legal expenses. This was satisfactorily explained to him by the mayor and  city clerk. Alderman Sullivan  wanted information in reference to  school expenditures. It was elicited  that the furnace was too  small for  the building The mayor said that  the furnace was inteuded to heat  1)0,000 cubic feet, while the, space,  occupied was only -15,000 cubic  feet. Alderman Nelson suggested  that the furnace might ne'-d cleaning out. The clerk said it was intended for hard coal.  The question of the plans for  the city waterworks was discussed.  On suggestion of the mayo;* it was  decided to hold over until return  of city engineer, who is out on  mineral claim survey..  Chairman of waterworks reported  that intake to dam on Providence  creek had been blocked, but was  now clear.  Fire and light committee reported progress.  Board of health reported a general cleaning up. It was suggested  that the old cesspools in connection  with hotels be inspected.  Alderman Desrosier, chairman  of cemetery and pound 'committee,  presented the following letter in  reference to furnishing water for  the cemetery:  Devi: Sik : In compliance with  your tequest for an estimate covering  the  cost of installing a hy  draulic r.un for the. purpose of  supplying water to the city cemetery. I beg to submit the- following facts and figures :  In looking over ground and judging from the eye, it was thought  S200 would cover the entire cost,  but in going over same ground  with an instrument it was proved  that elevation was more and head  of stream less than judged by the  eye, consequently cost will exceed  rough estimate, but you may have  assurance of practibility of scheme  and be assured of [constant supply  of small amount of water aud reserve supply of 200 gallans, except  during winter season.  Estimate as follows : New ram.  No. t or 5.

Six lives were lost last Saturday  afternoon when the Hudson Bay  steamer Mount Ro3*al was wrecked en  the rocks in Citselas canyon, on the  Skeena river, sinking- in less than five  minutes afterward. Many of the 55  excited passengers jumped into the  raging canyon waters, aud but few  were drowned, most-of the people saving- themselves bv clambering- on the  rocks of Ringbolt island.  The sttamer was below Hazelton  when the accident happened, passing-  through a narrow canyon which can be  run at only certain stages of water,  where the strong current carries 1he  river boats three-quarters of a mile in  a minute aud a half. The port quarter  crashed against the rocky wall and the  stern swung round and was battered  against the opposite wall, for the boat  was longer than tlie canyon was wide.  The big vessel heeled over with the  weight of water and sank rapidly.  Some of the passengers jumped from  the boat to the island. Others toi.k to  the water, and some of them floated  down the canyon on debris, lo be picked up by Indians in canoes.  The Mount Royal was built at Victoria, li, C, in iyu2. She was 130 feet  long, 25 feel wide and drew IS inches  of water. She was commanded by  Captain Stewart S. Johnson.  0000<-KX><K>00<K>CM?CK*KX>C>000<>00  Lelber'B  F. M.

Judge Dunne, in passing- sentence, read the prisoner a lecture  he will never forget, and then  ordered him confined in San  Quntin for live years.  The war with graft is evidently  on over there, and others in high  places are ticketed for public  scalping. The men who give the  bribes that make the accepting  official a disgrace to himself and  his nation, are not likely to escape much longer. They are the  greater criminals, and their exposure ought to be, and doubtless  will be, followed by the punishment they merit. The signs of  the time augur well for the public weal. The nation is beginning-to feel and to assert a self-  respect. The courts are awakening and criminals are reading the  signs of the times with disquiet  and misgiving. The rights of  the people are becoming recognized as never before, and law  ceases to be a ^mockery and its  administration a subject of ridicule.  A" GREAT CHANGE.  Premier McBride has returned. Iu an interview he is  described as saying that he had  put in three months of vigorous  work for the province, and as a  result "final and unalterable"  wouldn't stand good. While the  Premier was away Finance Minister Tatlow has figured out a  million dollar surplus for the last  fiscal year.    Is it real?  Tut* $500 head tax does not deter the Oriental from trying to  capture a" small part of British.  Columbia prosperity. The country is worth it, in his opinion.  Although for the first year of the  application of the increased head  tax, no Chinese came to the country, they have apparently now decided that they can afford to pay  it. For the last three months  they have been coming in increased numbers, and during the  month of June 66 of them paid  what seems ah enormous and prohibitive tax, and swelled the revenue to the tune of $33,000.

'  MODES FOR MEN  When, a few years ago, a member of the English aristocracy  was dealt with rather severely by  tbe English courts, the fact was  generally commented on by the  papers of the United States, and  the question was asked by the  people and press, when will the  United States thus deal out justice to all, regardless of wealth  or condition. But the last few  years have shown that the public  mind and the official conscience  of the great republic have been  awakened and quickened.  -  The government and the courts  of the United States are going  after boodlers, corrupters, graft-  ������rs and thieves in most vigorous  The Mail and Empire of July  5th contains the following, intended to be a bracer to the people of Canada, who have invested  in Cobalt stocks:  Cohalt, Ont., July 4.���While pre s-  pecting on the Nipissing property this  afternoon on lot 400, a vein of native  silver fonr inches in width was discov-  'er"p'd:r"TKe"6ff i's=e"M  pieces taken from the vein are literally  shot through with native silver.

The Art of Being Well Dressed Is  Studied Beforehand.  The great art of dressing for men is  that they shall feel,and look at home  in their clothes���at ease in whatever  they wear. One may wear the finest  materials, silk lined and satin finish,  and still be outre if the materials are  riot in good form and appropriate to the  man and the occasion. The art of being  well dressed, whether a man or woman,  is to have a pleasing ensemble.  In all the Semi ready designs and  fabrics the endeavor is to adhere to the  conventions of good form and to tailor  only suits and overcoats which will  meet with the approval of gentlemen  who appreciate individual tone and expression.

Victoria, July 5.���Col. May of Seattle, is at present in the city, making  arrangements . for work being com  menced at Port Simpson on the Pacific  & Hudson's Bay railway. ; The colonel  is prominently identified with that  project which it is intended to construct  from Port Simpson by way of the Pine  River Pass to Fort Churchill on Hud  son's Bay.  The charter for the railway has not  yet been obtained, but Colonel May  anticipates no trouble in connection  with that at the next session of the  Dominion parliament. In the. meantime he says the work of survey will  proceed.       :  The intention at present is to erect  wharves at Port Simpson for the land  ing ot supplies? etc. . A hotel will be  built-later, and also wharehouses. The  Braden block of property, with three  miles and a half of water front at Port  Simpson, has been purchased and will  be utilized for the purpose.'  Colonel May says that the financial  side of the project is all in hand;  Hudson's Bay, he says, will be available for vessels practically every dav in  the year* It will be found, he says,  that there has been a false impression  allowed to prevail with respect to that  great body of water, and that there will  be no difficulty in keeping up communication by means of it with Britain all  the year round.  The new route, lie says, will g ive the  shortest way" between London and'the  Orient; only 2,700 miles from the British metropolis to Yokohama.  Colonel May \vill dispatch men north  at once to begin work at Port Simpson.  SCHMITZ A CRIMINAL  Who Makes Criminals of the  False  Men in Office?  BY ARTHUR BRISBANE.  Schmitz, mayor of San Francisco, is  Others that associated with him will  soon be in jail.  Not only in San Francisco, but in  nearly every city in this country there  are office holders, "representatives" of  the people, that ought to be put in jail,  and kept there.  Whose fault is this? The fault of  human nature, of natural human dishonesty, do you say?   Not at all.  The bribe taker is the creation of the  bribe giver. Kverybody knows that  human nature is weak, that there are  in the world only too manv men that  would become dishonest in tlie face of  temptation.  The laws are made to make temptation less attractive. Many men would  steal; the threatening jail keeps them  from it. Many, perhaps, would commit murder, but the noose, the electric  chair, or life imprisonment, frightens  them.  But our laws and our way of enforcing laws do not frighten our most dangerous ciiminal, the rich giver of  bribes.  Schmitz might have been an honest  man all his life if the big- men that  make a business of bribing officials  had any reason to fear jail as a result  of their bribe giving.  In our country we occasionally put  in jail the small man who takes a bribe,  if we catch him, and if public opinion  is sufficiently aroused.  But we too rarely���practically never  ���convict and lock up the most dangerous scoundrel that gives the bribe.  The law should be arranged and enforced so that the man who gives a  bribe would put himself at the mercy  of the bribe taker.  Any man taking a bribe, confessing  and proving it, should be able to put  the bribe giver in jail and go free as a  reward for his confession.  This would do one of two things. It  would put the rich bribe givers in  prison, or it would frighten  them  out  of their lucrative habit of bribery.  To give a bribe would put the bribe  giver at the mercy of the bribe taker.  It would expose the bribe j*-iver to  blackmail forever, and to prison if he  refused the blackmail.  If the people of the country really  want to stop the giving of bribes by  the rich men. they must make it possible to put the bribe giver in jail. This  can be done, and it ought to be done.  The lesson that Schmitz teaches is that  until we shall have developed a very  much better race of men than we have  today we shall have such scandals, and  such shameful dishonesty iu office as  long as we permit the rich to bribe  public officials iu order to make themselves richer.  SCALE AD0P1ED  The management of the Yale Mining company and the Daly Reduction  Co. have adopted the "Boundary"'  wage scale. The company has found  it difficult to retain men under the  scale hitherto prevailing, and realizing  thac men at Hedley deserved as good  w iges as could be obtained elsewhere,  decided to put the new rates in force  on July 1st. Hedley, like all mining  sections, feels the scarcity of labor,  but.the management of the above companies believes that the adopted scale,  added to healthful surroundings, and  excellent climate, ought to do for that  district what similar conditions are doing far the Boundaiy���secure plenty of  good workmen.  *  AT  KEREMEOS, B.

The sermon of the  evening was along the line of earnest  development of boyhood, and was  earnestly listened to by the beys, who  occupied front seats. The boys pres-,  ent represented families* adherent to  several churches. They will doubtless  attend all. the churches in turn, and  thus learn that Christianity as an es  sence is greater than the church, and  the church as an institution greater  than denominationalism.

But  tlie latest strike reported is one of great  moment to the camp. This time it is  a strike among the men, and 2,000  miners are reported out. The em-  "ployes���scale"'^  has been prepared by the men for the  employer's adoption. The strike is proceeding- peaceably and good order appears to prevail. F. A. Ackland, sec  retary of the labor department, has  left Ottawa to explain to those concerned the provisions of the labor act  recently passed by the Dominion government.  THE INDUSTRIAL DISPUTES ACT  The Industrial Disputes Investigation act of 1907, appears to be making  good. It has already been appealed to  in the dispute iu the western co'al fields  involving.3,500 men; in that between  the Grand Trunk Pacific railway and  its machinists; in the Spring Hill coal  mines, where 1.700 men were concerned: in that between the longshoremen of Montreal and ship owners in  which 1,600 men were interested; in  the Lethbridge. dispute between the  Alberta Railway and Irrigation Co.  and employees, involving 400 miners;  in the Halifax Longshoremen trouble,  and in the Copper Cliff mine strike on  Texada island. Several of these were  happily and speedily solved, and now  the secretary of the department has  gone to Cobalt to try and adjust matters at issue there.  AT THE E. P. U,  The E. P. IT. syndicate is very much  encouraged by the present appearance  of its property. The syndicate has  faithfully stuck to an up hill proposition, but io one assumed only after deliberate consideration. Over 700 feet  of tunnel work has been done and the  point is being approached where the  engineer indicated the lead as likely to  be encountered. Some quart'', is now  coming into the face of the drift, and  it is hoped that the lead will be encountered within the next few feet.  From the foot of the 150 foot shaft  on the Strathmore a drift has been run  in over ISC feet, much of it in ore. The  Strathmore has a fine body of ore  ready for stoping whenever the management decrees that shipping steadily  is necessarv or "tdvisable.
