Following is an extract from a letter
received by A. M., Whiteside of this
city from J. D. Swoid.M. E.', formerly
of .Greenwood, and now engaged in
mining at Goldfield, Nevada':   -
"By the way a man named Geo. McDonald, of Boundary district, was.paid
off some S1200 or $2000 in July or August and was never seen again until
his body was found in an old tunnel at
Tonapah. They say that his murderer
is known."
A. McDonald -was well known in this
city. He resided here several years,
and formerly worked at both the Elkhorn and Providence. He was about
thirty-five years old, unmarried and a
member of Sandon Masonic -lodge.
His habits were good. . McDonald left,
here for Tonapah last- March with H.
V. Fuller, of Greenwood, the well
known mining operator. It has transpired that he was grub-staked by
Phil McDonald and James Sutherland,
the owners of the Elkhorn.' :
Speaking to the Times today Mr.
Fuller expressed .the belief that McDonald was alive, and well, and that
the body found in the tunnel will"
prove to be that of another. Mr.
Fuller bases this belief upon a number of circumstances. He gave. McDonald an interest in the lease on the
Jumbo at Tonapah, placing him in
charge. On returning to the camp in
July Mr. Fuller met McDonald and it
was agreed that they should start next
day by stage for Goldfield. ' Next
morning Mr. Fuller learned that McDonald had sold his interest in the
lease for S1500 and had left by train at
mid night for Reno. McDonald, it is
.reported, _is_now___visiting. relativesin,
Michigan. ;
"Th:s is a wonderful camp as'you
can judge for yourself." Since January of last year, or in 12 months, the
camp has produced upwards of $3,500,'-
000 in gold and made many men rich,,
Dr. Bowes, John McKane, L. L." Pat/,
rick, C."\R. Lockhart, Taylor,1 !and
several others. On the Bowes-;Ker-
nick lease they took out $600,000 worth'
of gold in four months and a half. The
average value of the ore was $360. per
ton. Somejdays they raised from S15,-
000 to 520,600 to the surface. Bowes
shipped one lot that netted them 384,.-
000 and another lot of 15 tons that netted .£28,000. This is not a story but
facts.. The "Sandstorm" .shipped
about 12 tons that netted nearly S80,-
000. The "Combination" :has produced $650,000 since L. L. Patrick first
bonded it and has S1,000,000 blocked
out. The "January" on which he had
a lease together with three other men
has produced to date $575,000, that is
of course, including 5350,000 worth of
milling ore (535.00) on the dumps. The
"Florence" is now the big shipper and
is sending out some very rich ore. Two
days ago, they raised 1000 sacks of ore
worth $25 0CO per sack. A great number of 13. C. and Spokane men are here
and it is believed that 20,000 people
wil" be here before next June. The
area of the camp is about 25 square
miles and full of veins but is is a striking fact that there is but little low
grade ore. It is either rich or there is
none. Aboiit 25 properties are being
developed and there are 8 or 10 shippers. The altitude of this place is
5800 and the country a high plateau
with occasioned .eminences and covered with scrub sage brush. Certain
parts of the Ashcroft distric* bear a
resemblance to it."
Encouraging   Outlook   For  Skylark
Ca«*p Proposition.
The Coro-Canadian "group recently
acquired on a working bond by a
Grand Forks sy.nkicate is likely to
prove one of the best high grade propositions in Skylark camp. The
quartz lead at the bottom of a 30 foot
shaft varies from four to ten inches-in
width,'recent assays of the ore giving
returns, of $21:, £52, $83, SvO and $U54
respectively per ton in silver and gold.
Silver constitutes 85 per cent of the
values. Development work is in
charge of W. H. Jeffery, M. E., who
proposes lo drift on the vein after
reaching the 50 foot level.
•The group lies between and adjoining the Last Chance mine on • the
west, the Crescent mine on the northeast, the Lake rriine on the northwest,
the Preston on the east, the Hope No..
2 aiid Silver-King on the south. The
main lode or vein commonly known as
the "Crescent" lead has been traced
by open cuts across the Canadian, the
shaft being located about the centre o*
the claim. a
No work has been done on the Coro,
lying to the south,, as the surface is
covered with, wash, but the veins on
the Silver King and Silver Cloud head
in that direction. The formation consists of granitic rocks covered in places
by' metamorphosed rock, " which ■ has
been much altered in eruption. The
Canadian is also , traversed east .and
west by a .vein which has been opened
up on the Preston and disclosed high
grade ore.' ,
There, is an abundant supply of
excellent mining timber on the.Coro.,,
The members .of the s-yndicate tha
bonded the group are Lord Arthur
Rainey, Dr.' Kingston,' J. *W. McCallum,' W. J. Cook, Dr. Northrop,
Chas. Brogden, R. • Mcintosh, • W. J..
ford, ,of Grand Forks, and W, A.
Harkin, Greenwood.
The Last "Chance", the adjoining
piine, is the largest shipper in Skylark
camp,and. the'Crescent,a"soa neighbor
with 70 tons of ore on the dump, will
resume operations shortly.

The. Montreal &  Boston in 'the opinion of people  best able to judge possesses the  best self-contained,, mining- proposition in the Boundary district.  It draws ore from half a dozen of  ���its. own properties, several of  which, tonnage considered, carry  higher uniform values than those  of, its big rivals. We, need only  instance the character of the ore  that is available in the glory  holes of the Athelstan mine and  Jackpot fraction. Then again  the Montreal & Boston is in the  fortunate position that it has in  the Sunset mine  mine enormous  reserves of self-fluxing ores, ren-  'lering the purchase of custom  ores uii necessary. Without resorting to shaft mining the Rawhide, another of its propositions,  is now producing a daily tonnage  of 350 tons, an output which can  be quadrupled should circumstances require. The Brooklyn  and- Stemwinder group, owned by.  the same company, with further  development, will, it is said, rival  the Granby mines in magnitude,  aud are already credited by no  less an authority than Dr. Le  Doux, the eminent New York  metallurgist, with carrying  values of one dollar more per ton  than any other group in Phoenix  camp. It is now producing a  daily tonnage of 350 tons. The  company's smelter at Boundary  Falls, operating two furnaces, is  treating 715 tons daily. Another  furnace .will be in blast at an  early date. It. is obvious that the  output of the company's mines is  restricted to the capacity of the  existin g smelter facilities, which  already..rival the capacity of the  Granby .plant of four years ago.  If eastern people were as conversant with the merits of the Montreal & Boston proposition as  residents of this district the company's stock would be closely held  at a much higher figure.    ���  normal increase in the world's  consumption now exceeds one  hundred million pounds annually.  An American correspondent is  quoted as saying that the United  States mills will need .from ten  to" fifteen million bushels . of  wheat from farming sources to  keep their, mills for export running until the crop of 1905 comes  in. If this production should be  realized the wheat will have to  come from Canada and will effect  prices to the advantage of the  Canadian wheat grower. A year  ago a Liverpool writer ventured  the assertion that the United  States would soon cease to be an  exporter of wheat. The idea  was scouted yet the late events  have .brought the thought of this  saying home .with surprising  force. Last year saw wheat imports into the United States of  6,852-bushels. . This is a beginning, but only a beginning. The  American . press, discussing the  reduction in the area under fall  wheat in the United States,  views the situation with no little  aeprehension. The New York  Evening Post, a well informed  journ al,--makes-this-comment-:���  "Fortunately there is a large area of  virgin soil still left in Manitoba and  the Northwestern Provinces, and  many believe that the time is not far  distant when we will be obliged to import more freely from that quarter. It  has even been predicted that the Treasury Department will finally be com  pelled to greatly reduce the import  duty, if not ultimately abolish it altogether. It is needless to say that our  farmers will oppose such a step with  great vigor, so that il may tane a long  while to bring about any noteworthy  modification. "  . Copper continues to advance in  price. The past year has been  more prosperous in the copper  trade than the season preceding,  which was in turn a decided improvement upon 1902, and 1905  promises to be even better, from  the standpoint of the producing  interests. The rate of increase  in the consumption of the leading  metals, and also of coal, averages  .very closely to six and one half  per cent, compounded annually,  but copper and nickel are in  excess of this percentage. Contrary fo the generally, accepted  impression, the electrical demand for copper is not the  principal source of consumption,  the engineering trades taking at  least half of the total output.  Great as are the amounts being  invested in new copper mining  enterprises in various parts of  the world, the work is beinsr  undertaken none too  soon.    The  The .'provincial- socialists at  their recent convention in Vancouver decided to extend their  propaganda to all parts of the  Dominion. They have two representatives in the local house.  These members submitted a report  of the legislation they had been  instrumental in passing. The  report must have been cold comfort to the McBride administration whose tenure of power is  now more precarious th an ever.  Its authors with admirable frankness declared that the struggles  of the liberals and conservatives  were of little real interest to  them beyond serving to give the  socialist party vantage ground to  fight' for .concessions for the  wording classes. ,  The promptness with which  the last payment;, of $20,000 on  account of the purchase of the  Athelstan mine, was made, furnishes convincing proof of the  financial stability of the Montreal and Boston Consolidated  Mining & Smelting Co., Ltd.  Better still, the money was received by Greenwood citizens.  WATCHES  C LOCKS  JEWELRY  'Watch Repairing a Specialty  !��#"''Remember a guarantee ���  is given with all our work.

Protest  Assessment Commission Hears Strong  OWections to 2 "per cent Tax.  The assessment commission in session at Victoria has heard a great deal  of- testimony respecting the hardship  ofithe'two per cent mineral tax on low  grade copper propositions. The en-  dorBation "of the tax by Byron While  would. ;-carry weight if if Mr.  White pretended to have spoken for  the Bbnhdary mining-- industry. - Mr.  White is a silver:lead mine owner and  is-not'farniliar with local conditions.  He can Well afford to view the tax in a  favorable light considering that his  propositions- are high grade ones  whoBe!; lead products earn a large  -bCunty from the Liberal government.  C. A. Gait, of Rossland, gave answerable arguments against the  beariM6*.,:.of this -legislation as it  affectfed low-grade mines.  ���Reading a review of the situation,he  p'bint'edfirutthat t"P,.,to 1896 the taxation -of mines was as real estate. It  was then that the system was altered  and a> tax imposed-upon, the output of  the mines. Up to that time the mines  in: operation were largely high grade  properties: The tax worked against  low grade ores. It became prohibitive  as - the. grade .got low. Referring to  the acquiescence of Messrs. White and  Cavanaugh with tha working of the  tax,?h*e.kaid it might be that in certain  instance's this tax did not work oppressively, but this was not the case  with-really low grade ores. In 1898  there were about 20 mines paying  dividends. These had been reduced to  a very-small number now.  With reference to a substitute for the  2'*per'.'ceri't.<-'tax,'-Mrl Gait suggested :  First, the reduction to 1 per cent as at  first. ' Second, abolish the mineral tax  altogether. ''The" Indirect pro6t in renewed activity in mining would recompense this. -Third, the levying of  a tax- on the net annual income.  Fourth, the collection of a uniform tax  of $10 on all claims. In support of  th;s Mr. Gait pointed out that instead  of.the-assessment' work being-put at  $100, it might better be ��50. Then the  amount would be paid rather than the  practical' ,. wasting/ of the money in  having-the work done on the. claim.  Fifth,''amend the law to exempt pay  roll from tax. Sixth, abolish the  mineral tax and adopt Australasian  form of tax on mineral lands.  Mines paid indirectly an enormous  /taxation. Rossland existed by the  mines there. All the taxes paid there  were practically paid by the mines  there The War Eagle aud Centre  Star took about $4,000 a cay out of the  mine's, and but a very small portion of  that found its way to the shareholders  in dividends. He personally approved  of removing taxation altogether from  the mines. ���  J. J. Campbell, business manager of  the Hall Mining and Smelting Company at Nelson, was then called. Mr.  Campbell * said - the points which he  wished to bring to the attention of tlie  commission were: The siiiellt-r was  _ taxefron'-Jlaut'-fuel supplies and fluxes  ores and metallurgical output. If edny  ditto us were more settled in -British  Columbia a customs smelter would follow conditions on the continent and  make contract:, accordingly, but ihe  mining industry-was in a struggling  coridition,' not being able to always  get out?ores? ���-;The_V; vvere counelle'd to  carry a; stock-;and get out ores wheii-  ever;?they''.were?sent them. As a con  veiiience to th'e mining industry they  carried stock oif.$150,000, and it was a  hardship to have to pay a tax on that  after -paying' the ,two per cent lax  which was intended to cover everything. So"few mines made profits the  smelters were compelled for the past  four.'years to do business without a  profit.'-,He had. the annual reports  With hiiti to substantiate it. The pay-  irig'oGin additional tax on ore which  .Happened'''to' be in'the smelter's hands  was.a hardship. If a merchant bought  a $5,000 stock he had it to manage and  develop. ��� It was different with a  Smelter's stock, as no charge was made  in relation to the value of the ore. The  smelting business should really be put  in a. class-'by itself, and he cited the  case of the Emma mine, which had  been acquired by the smelter. This  minfjpayi'ng the two per cent tax, the  .smelter would also be taxed on its ores.  Oiily a .portion of the mine was o\vne<"  by'his company, the other portion being owned; by the B. C. copper Company. ' Thus "both companies were  paying the two per cent tax,though  neither owned the mine absolutely.  The treasons ..which have weighed in  exernpting.merchants from more than  one 'tax should also be applied to the  smeltihg^business- As things worked  "the large;.opexator was favored if the  smelter- also owned the mine. The  principle of.equity should be applied  to.the smelter company   getting  ores  from a number of small mines. ,As a  .-suggestion, he would say that the assessor should value the smelter and  plant in a lump sum and cutout the  complications.  Mr. ��� Tatlow' interpreted Mr. Camp-  hell's suggestion to be that smelter  taxation should be placed nnder a  separate system altogether.  Mr. Campbell agreed to this.  Replying to the chairman, Mr.  Campbell explained the technicalities  of smelting in its phases as bearing on  the taxation question.  Replying to Mr. Ker, Mr. Campbell  said one poiut-was that the smelter  .should not be assessed for ore carried  in stock. There was a difference be  tween the smelter stock and the merchant's stock, as the higher the value  of the ore the more the smelter lost.  Contracted Chronic Diarrhoea While  in the Philippines?  "While with the U. S. Army in the  Philippines, I contracted chronic  diarrhoea? I suffered severely from  this terrible disease for over three  yea**s and tried the prescriptions of  numerous physicians, but found nothing that did me any good until I tried  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy, two small bottles  of which entirely cured me and I have  since had no return of the disease."���  Herman Stein, 212 N.

Unless  3-.011 want to go into it extensively it.  need talce but very little of your time.  Government reports- show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatiy in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for more. " That means a steady  market, and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying-. While she is hatching and  brooding a lew chickens she could be  laying five or six dozen eggs. The  . per'cen I ag-e of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator:  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. Between these walls  mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed; making the whole as solid  as a rock. Chatham Incubators are  equipped with scientifically perfect  regulators which are an infallible  means of regulating the temperature.  No cash to pay until  October, 1905.  We will start you raising' poultry  for profit with a Chatham Incubator  without one cent of money from you  until next Fall.

The Ben Harrison mine at Chesaw,  Wash , is to erect a concentrator. ,  The Eucky Jim, a Slocan silver-lead  mine, has just paid a $10,000 dividend.  The Canadian GoldBlds syndicate  has declared a dividend of two cents a  share.  The Belcher mine, south of Curlew,  Wash., is shipping ore to the Granby  smelter.  The Skylark mine shipped a carload  of second grade ore to the Granby  smelter last week.  Tuesday waspay day. at the Elkhorn  and Providence mines. The monthly  payroll exceeds $6,000.  The output of the mines of the  Boundary district during the past five  years is estimated at $12,000,000.  The Similkameen Waterworks Co.,  capital $10,000, has been incorporated.  It will provide a'service at Hedley,B.C.  It is estimated that the total output  of gold by the whole.world for 1904  reached the enormous figures of $340,-  000,000.    ���The Sally mine, west fork of Kettle  river, shipped another carload of ore  from Midway to the Trail smelter this  week.  It is said that the Ironclad, Wellington camp, owned by Geo. Rumberger,  W. J. Porter and J. J. Farrell, will  shortly make a series of experimental  shipments.  After a brief shut down owing to  lack of electrical power, the second  furnace at' the B,' C. Copper, Co.'s  smelter was. blown in Monday.   .  pauy's property, at Chesaw, Wash.  This property is located four mile** be  low Chesaw and consists of four  claims���the King Solomon and Daisy  running east from the valley, up on  Copper Mountain and the plub Flush  and JEtna Fraction extending,.;west.  This company is composed principally  of Spokane men.  At present three coal drills are  working in the Nicola district: One  at the Diamond Vale Co's property,  and one each at Lumbuni lake and the  Coldwater. These properties are all  believed to contain a large area ot  coal and '.he drilling is to ascertain  the extent and' quality of it. First  class coking coal is known to be in  the Nicola but its extent has never  been defined some of the strata being  at great depth.  On Friday last the Montreal and  Boston Consolidated Copper Co., made  the second payment of $20,000 cash to  W. T. Hunter and Geo; Collins, of this  city, on account'of the purchase price  dl the Athelstan /-mine and Jack Pot  fraction in Wellington camp. This  brings the total payments todate to  $40,000.- One additional payment,  which is not due, has yet to be made.  The promptness with which theJMont-  real and- Boston company has met all  its payments is conclusive proof of the  financial'standing of its management  shipping 200 tons per day early this  spring. During the past few months  thie company also installed a 60 h p.  boiles, and erected a compressor building, boarding ahd bunk houses, etc.  Besides building a quarter of mile of  wagon road to the railway. The  group is Dwned by the Betts and Hesperus Mines Co., Ltd., of Chicago, the  officers being Chas. J. Magee, president; P. B. Fridkin, treasurer, and  John Clancy, secretary. The general  manager is T. H. Rea, an experienced  mining man, formerly of Rossland.  The enterprise] of the Chicago people  promises to be richly rewarded.  Rich ore was struck this week in the  shaft of the Paymaster fraction, near  Midway, now being developed by Geo.  R. Naden.  ..CAR OF NEW..  Surface work was started this week  on the Meadowlark claim, recently  bonded by. Mayor Naden on behalf of  Greenwood and outside parties.  M. S. ,L,ogan. .and J.-C.-'Moen', of the  Jtino mine, near Nelson,. B.

' It. will run  thirty-five per cent zinc. Three months  will be needed to ship it/    ��� ' {  J. M. Hagerty states that he now  has all the men at the Similkameen  falls that can work there to advantage  and that the plant will be installed  complete, ready to turn on the current  during the month of April. The Great  Northern officials want power to run a  large tunnel through Shanker Bend  just above the falls, and they, will  complete the road this year.- So many  strong assurances from so many different sources have been received/that  the Great Northern will build up.the  Similkameen this year that there is* a  littlcroom or reason left for doubting.  .And , at .last the great problem ' of-  transportation, which has so long retarded the advancement cf that section, is about tc be solved.  Three shifts are now employed at  the Bay mine in Skylark camp.' The  vein now averages two 'feet ,in." width  and ftee gold continues to occur in  the ore now being extracted. '  The second furnace at the Boundary  Falls smelter will,not be.blown in until  the completion  of the repairs to the  .Rawhide..Jxamway;,_recejitly damaged  by the surface quarrying dperetipns.  The development in progress at.the  Stem-winder mine, Phoenix, belong  ing to the Montreal.and Boston,��� Consolidated, will presently- enable the  mine to maintain an butputof 150 tuns  daily.  The Golden Eagle mine in Brown's  camp, north font of Kettle river, has  been bonded by a Spokane syndicate  organized by J. H. Fox and comprising  John Mcintosh and E C?Tousley. According to. the terms of the bond,  which is to run for 18 months, at least  $1,000 must be expended monthly in  development work. The. plant and  shaftiiouse were destroyed last summer by bush fires. It is the intention  of the Spokane; .syndicate to begin  operations, forthwith. A new boiler  will be installed. The Golden Eagle  several years ago made several carload-shipments to -the Granby and  Trail  smelters,   the  ore averaging $30  -per- ton The_shaftJextends_to a.depthj  of 150 feet and there are several hundred feet of drifting.
