ARE ALL SATISFIED  Chicago Capitalists Pleased  With Investments,  IN THE HIGH GRADE BELT  Interested in the Crescent Group of  Mines in Skylark Camp.  The good old times of '98 and '99 are  returning. During the construction of  the Columbia and Western railway all  points in the Boundary, and especially  Greenwood? were-'booming. The expenditure of large sums of money in  railway construction and the activity  shown in the development of the big  low grade mines combined to force the  growth of the city and make good  times generally throughout the district.  With the completion of the railway,  however, a large payroll was lost, and  the city: having grown faster than the  development of the mines, tributary to  it, dull times were the inevitable result. As the development of the mines  increased, as new properties were  opened up, as the smelting facilities  were increased and aB the high grade  belt became a new factor in the district, these dull times gradually disappeared. The construction of at least  two railways in the district put on the  finishing touches and the last vestige  of hard times is disappearing. These  growing times are contagious and this  desirable change in conditions is affecting all classes of industry.  The big mining companies are extending their operations on a larger  scale.. , The Granby company is acquiring new mining properties and it  has increased its smelter capacity to  eight furnaces.  All the large mining companies are  investing westward. The B. C. Copper  has bonded properties in the Similka-  mean and in the Myers creek mining  districts and have forces of men at  work at these points.  The newly reorganized Dominion  Copper company is perfecting its plans  to. beginning mining and smelting  operations early in September. The  capacity of the present smelter is to  be enlarged, or it is within the range  of possibility that a new smelter may  be erected. But the greatest development is in the high-grade belt, in  which outside capitalists are becom-  lag'^l*Lt��I^*-iedv^-SiiJ��3L?Ei-h'^LJ5<--n L* **e  largest quota of enterprising men who  are willing and anxious to invest their  money. All the high grade properties  never looked better, and with the investment of capital which is sure to  follow the visits oE the prominent  financial men who are now in the district, the high grade belt is sure to  play an important part in the good  times that are now here and that are  sure to. continue for years to come.  The construction of theV., V. & E.  aud the Midway and Vernon, and  probably the C. P. R, from Midway  at an early date will will bring new  investors into the district. The country west of Greenwood has been retarded by lack of transportation facilities, No one who knew anything  about the West Fork and the Similkameen districts had any doubts regarding their ultimate future, but the hurricane deck of a cayuse or dusty wagon  roads are not conducive to mining investments.  The agricultural development has  kept-pace with other industries. On  Sidley mountain is as fine and rich a  farming section as can be found anywhere in the province. Along the  Kettle river and on the bench lands  back of Midway the industrious farmers are rapidly making for themselves  comfortable homes and contributing  their share to the wealth and prosperity of Southern British Columbia.  Then, too, small patches of land,which  would not be looked at a few years  ago, are being cultivated today.  Such a combination of development  must necessarily have its influence on  the commercial life of the district. It  is rS idle boast to say that in a very  short time Greenwood and other towns  in the Boundary will be enjoying even  better times than in the good old days  of six years ago.  A nuiu'uer of prominent Chicago  business men paid a brief visit to the  district this week. They were headed  by Colonel Dickason, who is interested  with them in the Crescent group. They  arrived at Phoenix by private c*ir attached to Tuesday's Great Northern  train and drove to Greenwood, where  the night was spent. Wednesday  morning they visitedthe properties in  wb,jch they are interested, and leftothe  same day for the East- The party included Colonel Dickason. Ghicago;cG.  J. Grammer, vice president of the  Monoh railway system, and his son, -  Nesbet Grammer of Buffalo, N. Y.j L-.  D. McEeisli, a prominent banker of  Evansville, 111., and A. J. Herb, of  LfOixisville, Ky. They were well pleased  ���with the Crescent and more than satisfied with their investment in Boundary  high grade mines.  The Crescent, after four months' development.under the superintendenc'y  of H.-H. Shallenberger, is now one of '  the most promising properties in the  high grade belt? The shaft is now  down over one hundred feet,.ore having been followed the whole way. The  vein is nearly vertical in its dip, and  will average over 5100 per ton, chiefly  silver. As the ore comes up out of the  shaft it presents a" wonderful sight,  being clear and massive aiid runuing  from six to fourteen inches in width.  The ore requires very little sorting, as,  it is allowed to stand on the wall and  knocked down/after blasting the country rock on the root Vail. There are  several carloads in the bunkers ready  for shipment.  Mr. Shallenberger has made many -  improvements on the surface of the  mine in the way of hoist, bunkers,  messhduse, bunkhonse, private residence and good sized stables, all of  which are substantial and iu good  order. The Crescent can now be  classed as one of the jnany producing  mines in the high grade belt of Greenwood. -  The Don Pedro lies to the west of  tlHfCfeScWl and is"beiug developed by -  H. H. Shallenberger. A shaft has  has been sunk 85 feet all inore, that is,  the vein is from six to eight inches  wide and clear, high grade ore. A drift  is being run at the 65-foot level north  on the vein preparatory to stoping.  The ore is very high grade? carrying  ruby silver and antimonial gray copper,  high in silve**.  Mr. Shallenberger has started quite  a glory hole on the grade of the new  wagon road where the vein was ex  posed in grading the road, 10 to IS  inches of solid ore i-n large slabs and  piled up near the hole. The vein is  opened up for 300 feet on the surface,  all of which shows ore to the grass  roots.   The mine is well equipped.  On the Preston development still  continues with a force of ten men,  sinking, drifting and stoping. On  Wednesday last a very fine body of ore  was encountered in the shaft, averaging seven inches wide and of high  grade. A shoot of ore was also encountered in No. 2 drift 6 inches wide  aud in 160 feet, and about 180 feet south  of the shaft. The ore shoot has beeu  proven to be over 300 feet long. So  far no faulting whatever has occurred.  The shaft is now down about 70 feet.  A contract will be let to sink 50 feet  deeyer, so as to open upstopinggrouud  and block out ore.  W. Morton left Tuesday for the West  Fork to resume development on the  Lilly, an adjoining claim to the Carmi.  A 50-foot shaft has been sunk, and it  is the intention ,to con'.inue this to the  100-foot level and crosscut for the ore  bodv. The vein�� on the surface is  about four feet wide of quartz carrying silver-gold values. A^a^^ai^w-G^tw-J-Wirta**!*^^  BOUNDARY GREEK   TIMES.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.   H.

Now that construction of the  V., V. & E. is an assured fact  Tory newspapers are eager to  find an excuse to justify the position taken by Tory members in  opposition to V., V. & E. legislation. Even the Hedley Gazette has turned. Two months  ago it was strong in its denunciation of those who would bottle up  the Similkameen for yeais to  come in the interest of the C. P.  R. monopoly; today the Gazette  is  responsible  for the following:  "A notable feature of the situation,  too, is that it vindicates the attitude of  the opposition who supported theC. P.  R's contentions Mr. Foster and those  of his associates who took a hand in  the fight with him, resent with very  great warmth the imputation that they  were advocating 'eithe'r a closed door  or a��perpetual monopoly,' and that all  they wished was to safeguard Canadian interests by ensuring the completion of the road on this side of the  border."  It is quite [j true that Conservatives assumed a righteous iudig-  nation when the}* found it was  impossible to defeat the V., V.  & E. bill, but to show where they  stood it is only necessary to point  out the Conservatives, including  Geo. E. Foster, voted against the  preamble of the bill. Had they  been in the majority this would  have completely knocked out the  bill. They opposed every clause  of the bill and supported every  amendment which, if carried,  would have destroyed the effect  of the legislation applied for.  In the railway committee in  the house of commons, as Hansard  will show, Mr. Foster's arguments if they proved anything,  proved that the proper policy for  this country to pursue was to  bolster up Canadian Pacific monopoly and keep out American  roads. For the first and last  time this session the Conservative party was practically united  on this question, On every other  great issue it? was a hopelessly  divided party, "but when there  was a chance to perpetuate C. P.  R. monopoly the Conservatives  were lined up in favor of monopoly, with three notable exceptions, R. Pringle of -Cornwall,  Gus. Porter of Belleville and Dr.  Walsh of Huntington.  The truth is that the Conservative party of today lives in the  past and is the slave of the gigantic railway corporation which  it created over twenty years ago.  Its leaders cannot realize that the  Canada of today is bigger and  stronger than airy railway corporation and^ that its people have  no use for any party that cannot  and will not act on any public  question without receiving its instructions from that corporation.  This is; not only true so far as  federal politics is concerned, but  is now equally true in reference  to the Conservative government  in this province. The leader of  the British. Columbia government  is never happy unless he is led by  some one. Last year his master  was J. H. Hawthornwaite, but  this year he has put himself under the guidance of -the Canadian  Pacific railway. At the next  sessionof the provincial legislature a raid is to be made upon/the  provincial treasury. . If the assets  not already given to railway corporations dojaot  fall into the ca  pacious maw of the Canadian Pacific Railway compan}-, it will be  because the Liberal opposition  will make a sufficiently strong  fight to prevent such a perversion. An alliance between the  C.P. R. and the McBride-government has been consummated  and a vicious raid is sure to be  attempted.  AMONG OURSELVES.  Greenwood's outlook was never  brighter than it is today. From  a mining, smelting and railway  poiut of view, it still occupies a  commanding position in the  Boundary district. Towns do not  grow likeTopsy in ,l Uncle Tom's  Cabin." They are made bj- the  energy and enterprise and industry of citizens who have faith.  At one time Greenwood stood out  among all other surrounding  towns because her citizens believed in her and worked for her.  Greenwood has the majority of  the same citizens still, but they  have become careless and indifferent at the very time they should  have exercised the greatest eu-  ergy. In that development which  is crowding fast upon the Boundary the future of the city is what  the people make. it. Greenwood  occupies a commanding position  but not an invulnerable one. -If  her people are indifferent or overconfident the result may be different.  At one time the business men  of Greenwood took a keen personal interest in everything appertaining to the welfare of the  city. It is only a short time ago  since the people of Greenwood  scrapped over the administration  of municipal affairs; today they  do not take sufficient interest in  municipal matters to fill vacancies  in the council. It is not long ago  since Greenwood had a live board  of trade whose members were always ready to advance all matters that they considered would  materially benefit the city; today  the board of trade is dead or  sleeping. A short time ago,  when a smelter was to be erected  or a new business established, the  business men of Greenwood were  keen to; do what they could in  bringing these new industries to  Greenwood. Today there are  things doing in smelter circles, but  the suggestion is scarcely made  that Greenwood's claims should  be kept to the front.  No good can be accomplished  by multiplying instances of indifference to the best interests of  the town. Greenwood has not  lost its grip, but in order to keep  it. her people cannot get too somnolent during the dog days nor at  any other season of the year.

Too much care cannot be used with  small children during the hot weather  of the summer months to guard against  bowel troubles. As a rule it. is only  necessary to give the child a dose of  castor oil to correct any disorder of  the bowels. Do not use any substitute, but give it the old-fashioned  castor oil, and see that it is fresh, as  rancid oil nauseates and has a tendency to gripe. If this does not check  the bowels give Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and  then a dose of castor oil, and the disease may be checked in its incipiency  and_.all _datiger avoided^ The castor  oil and this remedy should be procured  at once and kepi ready for instant use  as soon as the first indication of any  trouble appears. This is the most successful treatment known and may be  relied upon with implicit confidence  even in cases of cholera infantum. For  sale by all druggists.

Transvaal deposits of both tin and  copper are lenticular.  The finely-ground refuse from asbestos mills is sometimes used in the  manufacture of wall plaster.  Cocoa matting-and expanded metal  rifles are now very extensively used in  collocting the gold extracted by dredging.  The average hours of labor aud  -wages of Cornish tin miners are eight  hours per day and ��\. per week respectively- Some miners working on  contract get ��S to ,��6 per month.  The "process of [concentration by underground waters is never completed.  By reason of a change in the direction  of flow, ores may be redissolved and  reprecipitated in another locality.  ..Cyanide has been detected in the  human system as long as four months  after death occurred by poisoning.  Most of the precious stoues used in  jewelry are to be found in Mexico,  among them the opal, topaz? ruby,  emerald, ga.net, agate, carnelian.  . At Waihi. New Zealand, the use of  tube mills has doubled the capacity of  the stamps by permitting the introduction of 20-mesh screens where 40-  mesh were used before the tube mills  were installed.  The practice of regularly wetting  mine timbers in very dry portions of  the mine is successful in preventing  dry rot, which is a fungus growth  that does not thrive' in moist places.  The life of mine timbers can thus be  greatly prolonged.  It is not clearly determined why one  coal will make good coke and another  will not. It. is, however, a matter of  record in the Appalachian fields that  that coals approximately similar in  chemical composition will yield similar results in coking. ,  The sampling: of any deposic of mineral containing native metal is a.hope  less task, more apt to be misleading  than otherwise. In such cases experience will enable a man to pass judgment with as much accuracy as can be  obtained by sampling.  There aie boundless possibilities for  a great mining industry in Ireland.  The district from Arigna to Droma-  hair is rich in coal aud iron, and a projected railway line will cut through  the Gouiiaught a til fields, which emi-  ueut'experts have sl.ited is capable of  yielding between 20,000,000 and 30,000 ,-  000 tons of coal,-said to compare favor,  ably with the best Welsh aud Scotch  product. Notwithstanding these huge  deposits the total output of coal fcr  1903 in Leitrim was barely 1,480 tons;  in Roscommon, 10,366 tons, and in  Sligo 800 tons���an industry which, if  given the aid of railway iransporta-  tion, is capable of supporting thousands is not now maintaining one hundred persons.  In regard to men injured in mining  accidents, Dr. Atkinson, a well-known  physicianin Bendigo, Australia, says:  " In many cases, even though a miner  might be seriously injured, there might  be a chance of saving his life if he  were kept below in a recumbent position, and hot water bottles and other  simple applications made until he had  in a measure recovered from the shock  sustained by his system in consequence  of the injuries received. The mere act  of hurriedly bringing him to the surface in the cage in an upright position  is often sufficient to deprive the un:  fortunate man of any possible chance  there might otherwise have been of  saving his life."  In carrying on stoping operations  ���the extraction of ore should begin at  the farthest point from the shaft and  should not proceed from the shaf*. outward to the boundary of the property.  By the former method the ground can  be allowed to cave, track could be re  moved when no longer needed, and  ventilation would be increased when  connection had been established between levels at"theu*"eifd"farthest from  the shaft. Such a method may delay  production until the full length of the  drift is run, but it will give better results in the end.  In the Lake Superior copper region  the use of steam stamps has been  brovght to a higher state of perfection than at any other place. At the  Isle Royale mill, for example, there is  but one stamp and this has a capacity  of 550 tons per day. The record for a  single day's run in one of these stamps  779tons. while the average in a t-vo-  weeks' run was 725 tons per 2+ hours  of actual running. Iu the operation  of steam stamps of the highest type,  the steam pressure follows the stamp  fbr only half the stroke. This develops a velocity of 25 feet per second  aud causes the stamp to* fall with a  weight equivalent to three or four tons.  The ventilating problem which confronts engineers of the now famous  New York subway tunnel is not so  much one of supplying fresh air as it  is of lowering the temperature. The  subway tunnel has a higher temperature than exists on the surface and the  problem is somewhat the same as lias  been encountered in other tunnels. In  the great Simplon tunnel, for example,  it was found necessary to spray cold  water into the headings in order to  continue operations. A similar remedy  has been   suggested  for   the  subway,  and considering the high specific heat  of "water, it would seem thai the present unfortunate condition would be  satisfactorilp dealt with in this way.  The conditions met with m the sub  way are, however, not strictly com-  parable to those encountered in a tunnel used in mining operations, inas-  mucti-as in the foncer, a vast amount  of electrical energy used in the motive,  power and lig*hting of the tunnel is  constantly being conuerted "into heat  energy.    -  Colic and Diarrhoea���A Remedy that  is Prompt and Pleasant.

A most lamentable accident occurred at Christina lake Tuesday afler-  noon, when the lives of two young  ladies were blotted out by drowning.  A party composed of Miss Agnes  Ruckle, Miss Ida Anderson, Mrs. W.  M. Wolverton and daughter Marjorie.  and Mr.  Willey, superintendent of the  . Cascade Power company, left Cascade Tuesday morning for a day's  outing at English Point. After  luncheon Mr. Willey and Mrs. Wolverton went a short distance up McRae  creek on a trout fishing expedition.  During their absence Miss Anderson  and Miss Ruckle decided to go in bathing. Miss Anderson, who was unable  to swim, ventured out beyond her  dipth, and Miss Ruckle endeavored to  rescue her. In this attempt she got a  long pole and tried to reach her companion with it. Finding it too short,  she sw.am to her assistance. On reaching" her, Miss Anderson threw her arms  around her would-be rescuer, and they  both sank. This is the brief story of  the drowning, as told by Marjorie Wolverton, an eye witness of the accident.  Miss Ruckle's parents live at Beaver  Point, Salt Spring Island, B. C. She  was 24 years of age and was highly  accomplished. She taught school in  Cascade four years ago, and at the  time of'her death was visiting at the  home of Mrs. ti. K. Stocker. The last  four, years of her life she devoted to  landscape painting, in which she had  attained    considerable    success.     She  Was a cousin of the Ruckle brothers of  this city. Her father, Henry Ruckle,  is a rancher at Beaver Point.  Miss Anderson was a native of Minnesota, her parents living in a little  tewn near Minneapolis. She .was of  an ambitious nature, and  had  worked  |her   way  through one course   at the  I Pullman. Wash., college.    At the time  1 of her death she was employed at J. A.  Bertois'  hotel.    She  was engaged  to  I Mr. Willey, of the Power, company,  andthey were to have been married in  a short time.   She was 22 years of age  I and was of Norwegian descent.  Coroner   Kingston    and   Constable  I Dinsmore went down to the scene of  the   accident.    Dr.   Kingston  decided  I that an inquest would be unnecessary.  The sad accident has thrown a shade  I of sorrow over the town of Cascade, as  I both   oif   the  young ladies  were very  [popular.���Grand Forks Sun.

Grierson  PAINTER  CONSOLIDATION NEEDED  For the Development of High Grade  Mines of the District.  "Consolidation and the introduction  of up-to-date machinery plants for the  development of the high grade mines  in this camp are the two facts essential in my opinion to success." The  speaker was Richard Armstrong of  Chicago, who has been spending the  past fiye weeks in the Boundary, and  left yesterday for home. Mr. Armstrong has already interested with him  in local mines many prominent financiers of the Windy City. Continuing,  he said: "The purpose of my extended  visit was to complete the consolidation  into one company of the Barbara, Fremont aud Strathmore mines, to be  known as the Greenwood Consolidated  Mining and Smelting company. We  will expend $25,000 in developing these  properties. At present it costs $20 per  ton to extract the ore. With machinery  this will be reduced to $7 or $6 per ton.  Capital 'favors acquiring more land,  and this can only be done through the  consolidation of ��everal claims at  present working under individual  management. Such consolidations  tend to greater efficiency in development, and under these conditions the  mines can be made to be dividend-  payers on theincreased capitalization."  Regarding the outlook for capital  seeking investment from across the  line, Mr. Armstrong stated emphati  cally that British Columbia is now attracting more attention than such  states as Mexico, Arizona or Colorado,  and of the province, the Boundary district was preeminently in the lead in  this respect. Continuing, he stated  that such interests as the Standard Oil  crowd, headed by H. H. Rogers; the  the New | York Central �� roup, the  Morion railway people, and individuals  like F. W. Porler of Marshall, Field &  Co., Chicago, and Senator Hall, and  the Hon. George E. Foss, chairman of  the U. S. naval committee iti congress,  have already become interested in the  Boundary and are more than pleased  with their investments. Mr. Armstrong; besides being interested in the  new consolidated company, is part  owner in the Helen, Preston and other  high grade claims. Mr. William  Bailey accompanied him to Chicago.  JUSTIFY INVESTMENT  Colonel Dickason and Associates Have  Faith in Camp.  Colonel L. T. Dickason, coal operator, Chicago; Captain George J. Grammer, vice-president of the Lake Shore  and Michigan Central railway; H. J.  Hert, Louisville,.Ky., and S. C. Mc-  Leish, Evansville, Ind., were a party  of prominent capitalists who visited  Greenwood this week, inspecting the  high grade mines. They were driven  to the Preston and Crescent by William  Bailey, in   which properties they are  personally interested. Speaking for  the party, Colonel L. T. Dickason said  that the trip had been thoroughly enjoyed in every respect and the visitors  "were extremely pleased at the outlook  of mining here. He said*" " My friends  arid self are interested in both the  -Preston and Crescent. We purpose  immediately letting a contract for the  sinking of the Preston shaft to a depth  of 150 feet, and will install a complete  machinery plant at once. The showing is-excellent in the 70-foot shaft,  in fact, most encouraging- The high  grade ore already - extracted will be  sent to the smelter. The first shipment is to be made on- the 15th. A  plant will also be purchased for the  Crescent, in which my associates have  a half interest. This property, too,  will shortly be placed on a shipping  basis. You can add, too, that your  properties justify capital, and the result of-our visit will be of benefit in inducing our friends to take up other  properties in the Greenwood camp."  The party returned Wednesday to  Chicago from Phoenix, where Captain  Grammer's private car was side-tracked  during the visit,  Jas. Sutherland returned yesterday  from a trip to Spokane, in connection  with his mining interests.  The Labor organizations of Phoenix  will celebrate on Wednesday next, the  16th inst. There will be a parade in  the morning, and athletic and boxing  contests during the day, to end up with  a dance in Miners' Union hall in the  evening..  A Warning to Mothers,  Too much care cannot be used with  small children during the hot weather  of the summer months to guard against  bowel troubles. As a rule it is only  necessary to give the child a dose of  castor oil to correct any disorder of  the bowels. Do not use any substitute, but give it the old-fashioned  castor oil, and see that it is fresh, as  rancid oil nauseates and has a tendency to gripe. If this does not check  the bowels give Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and  then a dose of castor oil, and the disease may be checked in its incipiency  aud all danger avoided. The castor  oil and this remedy should be procured  at once and kept ready for instant use  as soon as the first indication of any  trouble appears. This is the most successful.*; treatment known and may be  relied upojn with implicit confidence  even in cases of cholera infantum. For  sale by all druggists.
