Mines and Smelters of Yale Are Sure
of Cheap Power:
Through the acquisition by the shareholders of the W. K. P. & U. Co. of all
the shares and the charter of the South
Kootenay Water Power Co. the W. K.
P. & L. Co. have been enabled to so
arrange matters that they can now
lawfully supply power and light and
transact all necessary business in the
district of Yalo. It will be rememoer-
ed.that at the last session of the legislature the W. K. P. & L. Co. applied
for an amendment to their charter so
as to enable them to supply power and
light in the Yale district. This application was defeated through the intervention of the Cascade Water Power
company, which company alleged that
it had vested interests amounting to a
monopoly in Yale district. Shortly
after the closing of the last session of
the legislature, the West Kootenay
company entered i'nto negoialions for
the purchase of the. rights of the South
Kootenay Water Power company,which
was incorporated in 1897 by Lionel H.
Webber, at that time of Rosslrnd, and
Home others. These negotiations have
lately been brought to a successful
conclusion, The West Kootenay company now control the South Kootenay

necessary for tlie mines and smelters
in the Yale district, The powers of
the South Kootenay company are most

compai.y to supply power wherever it
may'oe desired in the - Yale district.
Much credit is due to L. A. Campbell,

Kootenay Power & Light Co.. for thus
bringing about a condition under which
the mine aud smelter owners of Yale
district can now rest assured of a permanent - and economical supply of

In last week's issue of the
Timea, reference was made to a
letter containing a vote of thanks
from the Miners' union  to G. R.
Naden, for his services in  the 1
settlement of labor disputes be- "
tween the Union and  the smelt- j
ers.    By mistake the Times rep- [
resented   this letter   as   having I
been received as an acknowledge- (
ment of his services in  the late '
labor troubles, when in reality it 1
had reference to the dispute that j
wan amicably settled over a year :
ago.   The Times apologizes  for ■ J
this mistake in dates, and wishes {
it clearly understood that the re- )
sponsibility for this slight  error j
rests with the Times alone. \

Conservative Speakers Fail to Arouse Enthusiasm Friday Night.—Defeat on 2d Feb. Certain
The big guns of the Conservative
parly have come and gone, and the
local magnates of the party are busily
engaged figuring up the results. It
was a good meeting numerically, a
large and representative gathering, in
which the ladieB prominently figured,
turning out to hear the various speakers. The meeting was, on the whole,
a quiet one. While there were numei-
ons questions and remarks shot at the
occupants of the platform, there was
no marked hostility shown to any
speaker, nor was there any particular
preference displayed, that is, if one
could judge by the applause, which at
no stage of the meeting could be termed enthusiastic. Greenwood audiences
are not prone to enthuiasm anyway.
In order to get the reception public
speakers bo much desire, you have got
to "show" them, as the Missourian
says. Apparently the Conservative
orators and thsir ally, the Socialist
candidate, failed to do. this. On the
whole the results of the meeting were
not of a character that will bring much
comfort to the local conservatives.
Dr. J. E. Spankie occupied the chai**,
and with him on the platform were the
three candidates for this riding, as well
as Premier McBride and his lieutenant,
W. J. Bowser, of Vancouver.
E.G. Warren, Conservative standard
bearer, spoke but briefly, not over ten
minutes of the twenty that had been
assigned to each of the local men.r He
merely touched on some of the issues,
cordially endorsing all of the late gov
ernment's. acts,, and requested the
electors to support him in his'endeavor
to continue in office the government of
which Mr. McBride was at the head.
G. R.?Naden, the Liberal candidate,
was next called upon. Mr. :Naden"went'
more fully into the issues at stake than
his predecessor. He made it clear that
the policy of the government had been
more destructive than constructive in
character. He showed how, by its
preference and subserviency to the
C. P. R., the government had retarded
'he prosperity and development of
Southern B. C jriving the government's treatment of the V., V. & E.
and Midway & Vernon as examples.
He spoke briefly of the school act,
and cited local examples of the hardships it worked on the taxpayers. In
the course of his remarks he asked the
Premier some very pertinent questions,
of which mention is made in another
column, and closed by  making an ap
peal tc the electors to assist him in
bringing into office a government free
from any corporation connections.
Edgar Dynes, the Socialistic candidate, was the next speaker. Apparently the Socialist nominee is utterly
unable to euter into a discussion of the
questions at issue. His remarks were
almost entirely confined to local matters, in which the Boundary Creek
Times occupied a prominent place. No
defense was made of legislation which
was made possible only by the Socialistic vote in the house, and his reception by the audience when he again
attempted to drag in the meat scandal,
must have convinced eyen the most
hidebound Socialist that this question
is considered a chestnut by the intelligent public.
W. J. Bowser next addressed the
audience. Mr. Bowser is a fluent talker,
but he is handicapped at the present
time by a severe cold. His remarks
were a repetition of former addresses,
and beyond some quick passages at
arms with some of the audience, was
not of an interesting character.
Premier McBride closed tbe meeting
by a lengthy address lasting well on to
midnight. His remarks were closely
followed by the large audience, but it
was plainly apparent by the entire lack
of applause that the great majority of
those present were not in sympathy
with the ' policy of the speaker. His
explanation of his railway policy was
practically the same as given in Nelson
and ot*her points. No light was thrown
upon the retirement of his chief col-
leagues, and little or no attempt made
to answer the questions framed by the
liberal candidate, to whom he paid his
respe- ts in the usual election campaign
method"' /:" 'v;"\ .
Mr. McBride made strong efforts to
create the impression that the Ottawa
government was after his political scalp
and endeavored to appear as the champion of B. C. against the encroachments of the Dominion government
upon provincial rights.
Upon the question of better terms
he dwelt at considerable length, and in
closing made an urgent appeal for the
Greenwood electors to assist him in
'this fight for what he terms the rights
of the province. During the latter
part of the address the Premier spoke
to a rapidly diminishing audience, and
his failure to hold the attention of his
hearers to the finish occasioned considerate comment.

"Before we can sympathize with

that ciiuses so much physical and,.

defies medical aid. All danger from
the grip, however, may be avoided by

A REMARKABLE ADMISSION  Premier McBride and his followers  in discussing the Kaien island transaction, have repeatedly assured their  audiences that the deal was a gond one  for the province, and took no little  credit to himself and colleagues for its  successful consummation. It now appears as if the government has undergone a change of opinion in regard to  the value of the lauds surrounding  Prince Rupert townsite. Recently  agents of the G. T. P. railway completed a deal with the Indian tribe,  whose reservation is adjacent to Kaien  island, whereby 13,000 acres of the  Indian reserve was to be handed over  to the G. T. P. for a consideration of  $7.50 per acre. The Dominion government, as the guardian of the Indians,  offered no objections to the deal, but  the provincial government, on being  requested to santion the transfer,  absolutely refused on the ground that  the railway in question had already  received sufficient of the public domain, and that the land in question,  when a great city had arisen at the  Grand Trunk terminus, would be worth  millions.  Surely if it was a good deal for the  government to dispose of the townsite  itself for $1 per acre, it is certainly a  better one to dispose of land adjacent  thereto for $7.50 per acre. And further  if the Grand Trunk Pacific are now  willing to pay $7.50 for land not embraced in the townsite, does it not  appear reasonable to suppose they  would have paid more for the townsite  itself, and that apart from the underhanded, .suspicious manner in which  the sale was made, the action of the  McBride government in disposing of  these lands for the paltry sum of $1  was, to put it mildly, a most unbusinesslike and careless proceeding.  Attempts are being made by government supporters to make capital out of  McBride's refusal to sanction the  transfer of the land involved in this  last sale by citing it as an example of  the paternal care he exercises over the  public domain.  Th75y���are"welcbme--to"iwhat'comfort  they can get from such a peculiar  opinion, but to the intelligent public it  will appear either as an example of ill  will towaid the Ottawa government or  an admission that a mistake had been  made in disposing of Kiaen   island at  y  the price they received, and  that here  after the   big   railway   company  will  have to pay dearer for what they  acquire iu that part of B. C.  Incidentally it teaches a lesson to  the Grand Trunk Pacific. They had  no business lo attempt to secure land  in B. C. without first securing the  services of the noted coterie that were  so conspicuous u feature of the late  administration, and it is more than  likely, had the Anderson's services  been requisitioned, the lands would ere  now have been in the possession of the  Grand Trunk PacificRailway compr.ny.  A DISTORTED ACCOUNT  The Greenwood correspondent of the  Nelson Conservative organ, in his  report of the McBride meeting here on  January 18th, has demonstrated that if  he is not a lineal descendent of Annias  he is at least possessed of the qualifications that made that gentleman  famous. The "enthusiastic mas meeting" which brought the "political  interest in Greenwood to its highest  pitch," was from a conservative point  of view, a dead failure.  There was not, to begin with, the  spontaneous, hearty welcom-*: that is  generally extended to the leaders of  political parties, and Mr. McBride's  sneering, offensive criticism of the  platform appearance of the Liberal  candidate antagonized a large portion  of the andience, who, regardless of  political leanings, fell that the attack  was coarse and uncalled for, and entirely foreign to the subjects for which  the meeting was called. In addition to  this, as the meeting progressed it became apparent to all, except some of  the most hidebound partisans, that the  chief Conservative speaker was utterly  unable to explain satisfactorily the  many serious charges brought by the  opposition press and speakers against  the late administration. Would any  sane, unbiased individual./after listening to the premier's remarks, acknowledge that he was convinced of the justice and propriety of the Kiaen island  deal, or the C. P. R. taxation question,  or the Columbia & Western land grant  or the half Gotten other issues of this  campaign? No one was, no one could  be, and none are better aware of that  fact than the local leaders of the Conservative party themselves. Even the  premier's frantic endeavors to create  a feeling of resentment against the  Ottawa government for its alleged  injustice on the "better terms" question,^ ellflat.and.jw.erejreceivedMnab-  BACK  3'RONi  OF  COAT  Dotted lilies  show  Alteration  From the Pattern  Because we know all  about this stooping-shoulder  type from the standpoint of  anatomy and tailoring, we  know all about the little points  that take away the somewhat  exaggerated " round - shouldered" appearance.

The fact of the matter is, the Conservatives candidates' chances of  electiou are absolutely nil, and even  the profuse oratory of Bowser and McBride failed to revive the drooping-  spirits of their Greenwood followers.  This was plainly evidenced by the  coolness of the party leaders' reception  Friday night, and no garbled, distorted  communications by irresponsible correspondents will have the least influence in returning a government supporter on the 2nd of next month,  A DISTINCTION WITHOUT A  DIFFERENCE  P. W. GEORGE & GO.  The Socialist candidate at the Conservative meeting on Friday night,  attempted co make a mountain out of a  mole hill over the slight mistake in  dates regarding the letter to G. R.  Naden, containing a copy of the resolution passed by the Miners' union  tendering him a vote of thanks for his  services in connection with the labor.,  troubles at the smelter. His attempts  to create the impression that no such  letter was forwarded must appear as  the very acme of nerve, even to those  within his own ranks who are conversant with the facts in the case.  For those who are not acquainted  with the facts, we wish to state the  following:  The lotter in question was sent to  Mr. Naden on January 5,1906, acknowledging his services in the settlement  of the troubles which existed some time  previous to that, and conveying to him  a unanimous vote of thanks from the  union for his work in their behalf.  The letter is a well worded type-  written documentj-prLated^onJWjssteii-r  Federation paper, stamped with the  seal of the union and signed by Ernest  Mills.  Since the publication of a letter in  the Ledge, by the president of the  union, in which Mr. Naden was made  to appear as the enemy of an eight  hour day, the Times has repeatedly  urged upon Mr. Naden the advisability  of publishing this communication from  the union, but so far  without success.  Mr. Naden takes the stand that he  received this at a time when he was  not looking for political honors, -��nd  that he is not going to seek to make  political capital out of what he did or  tried to do at a time when politics did  not enter into the questions at issue.  But if the Socialist candidate wishes  to verify the existence of this letter,  he can call at Mr. Naden's office and  see the document for himself.  The only thing in which the Times  erred was in the dates of the labor  troubles. There is no mistake as to  the existence of the letter or to the  hearty sentiments conained therein,  and any hair splitting distinctions that  may be drawn by the Socialist candi  date will not obscure this fact, that the  Socialists themselves, when not laboring under the stress and excitement  incidental to a losing election campaign, recognize G. R. Naden as a  staunch supporter of the rights of  labor, and any attemps thev are now  maning to paint him as anything dit-  ferent is only an election dodge to  catch the votes of those not familiar  with the circumstances.

And   further take notice that action  under  section 37, must be commenced before the  is  nance of such certificate of improvements.  Dated this 17th day of January, 1907.  The publication by a Vancouver  daily newspaper of an article 'accusing  the ex-commissioner of lands and  works of accepting- a huge bribe from  eastern capitalists in connection with  the issuance of coal leases to the  Transcontinental Exploration Co., will  be read with feelings of dismay even  by those who differ politically from the  ex-minister; for while there was a wide  spread opinion that the public affairs  of this province Lave been for years  carelessly and loosely managed, and  that a change is imperatively necessary, there are few but who will feel  it almost as a matter of personal disgrace that a public official of this province would descend to the gross corruption charged in the article men  tioned. Tt' is a. matter of regret that  the public business of this province is  conducted in such a manner that even  a suspicion of crookedness should be  created, for the mere fact of such  charges (whether true or false), being  published, has ���*, tendency'to lower the  standing of public morals, destroy  what little faith in the integrity of  public officials still remains, and furnishes to ��� demagogues and professional  agitators weapons which they will, not  be slow to use..  Without expressing an opinion as to  the veracity of the charges  published  in the World, it may   not  be   amiss to  recall the  fact   that   R.   F. Green left  the   cabinet   under    peculiar   circum  stances,   and   that   the   premier   and  the remaining members of  the  executive have entirely ignored all   requests  for  an  explanation   of his  retirement  from   public  life.    The silence of the  premier on this   matter   must   now   be  broken.    It  is  out of the question   to  suppose that Mr. Green could carry out  the deal in question without the knowledge or   consent   of his colleagues  in  the ministry,  aud   further   refusal on  -the-par-t-of=-Mr1.-McBride-tO-explain_Mr,,  Green's withdrawal  from   the  cabinet  can only be construed as an admission  that   the   charges   published    in    the  World are,  in  the  main,   correct.    At  the presen time strong efforts are being  made to secure Green's version   of the  story, for until this is given  it  would  be unfair   to   pass judgment.    R.   F.  Green at no stage  of his  career could  be classed as an orator,  but  for  once,  at least, his   remarks   will be eagerly  followed by the reading public regardless of political persuasions.  deavor;  'Mr.   Graham read   a  lengthy :  report from the Session, and  Mrs. McKee.   reported on   work   done  by    the  Friendly Visitors' society.

To relieve a cough or break up a cold  in twenty-four hours, the following  simple formula, the ingredients of  which can-be obtaiued of any good  prescription druggist at small cost, is  all that will be required: Virgin Oil  of Pine (Pure), one-half,ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half  pint. Shake well and take in teaspcoti  ful doses every f cur hours. Thedesned  results can not be obtained unless the  ingredients are pbre. It is therefore  better to pui-chase the ingredients separately and prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin Oil o�� Pine (Pure) should  be purchased in the original half ounce  vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is securely sealed in  a round wooden ca'sp which protects  the Oil from exposure to light. Around  the wooden case is an engraved wrapper with the name���"Virgin Oil of  Pine (Pure)"���plainly printed thereon.

Tv e meeting opened  with prayer by the pastor. Rev. M. D.  McKee, ofter which A. M, Whiteside  was voted to the ch lir.  Congregrational Secretary F. E.  Brown read the minutes of the last  annual meeting, which, upon motion,  was adopted.  Reports received from the various  church societies were th^n received.  Miss B.

Campbell? the McBride candidate, will carry Rosslaud, s>.ys the  Miner. Yes, it looks like it. Carry it  in the same way he did in the civic  election. A candidate who cannot secure a seat in the city council ean  hardly be looked upon as a serious  factor in a provincial campaign, especially when facing an opponent of  the calibre of J. A. Macdonald.  The Greenwood Ledge of last week,  in one of its many scurrilous paragraphs, tried to convey the impression  that the Liberal candidate, G. R.  Naden, while mayor of Greenwood,  had drawn the salarj* incidental to the  office while absent on his trip through  Northern B. C. Had the Ledge taken  the trouble to investigate this petty  charge it would have found that Acting  Mayor Mr. Herbert Bunting was paid  the mayor's salary during Mr. Naden's  absence, and that the latter was paid  only for the actual time he occupiedhis  seat at the head of the council table.  Try again, Ledge.  (Iron and Oil)  "FERROL "has wiped out the "IF."  "FERROL" has brought the wonderful and universally recognized virtues of Cod Liver Oil, Iron and  - Phosphorus within easy reach, of the multitudes who  need them.

The RnViy furnishes,  some of the highest grade copper ore  in the camp, and if the main body  couid be located would soon take i*s  place as a dividend payer.  It is currently reported that the directors of the British Columbia Copper  company have decided to declare a dividend this month approximating 16 percent of the par value of the stock,which  is now ��13 per share. Assuming this  to-be correct, it-would appear that the  future of this locality is'a-bright one.  With the Granby dividend approaching  $2,000,000. and 'the. Dominian Copper  company afid B. C.

The Bav mine at tlie present time is  exciting considerable attention among,  local mining men, on account of the  quality of ore at present being* extracted from both north and south  drifts, which have been run a distance  of 45 and' 60 feet respectively, all of  which was in good ore.

ROCK CREEK MEETING  Yet Zam-Buk Has Completely Cured  So powerful are the healing essences  in Zam Buk that in some cases which  have been pronounced beyond relief  they have worked complete cure! Such  au instance is just reported from  Inveraray, Sa.sk. Mrs. J. M. McCor-  mick, of that place, says: "'About,  seven years ago my face broke, out in  rough red blotches, which burned and  itched and smarted in turn almost  beyond endurance. I coramencod to  try every known remedy I could get  for face -and skin troubles. Seme of  them gave a little relief, some none,  but no matter how much I used them,  as soon as I w.jnt out the trouble started  all over again. I consulted doctors,  and they told me there was absolutely  no cure for me, but that I should have,  to wait until I outgrew the disease.  "Finally my husband sent for a supply of 2Jam-Buk. We applied a small  sample lo'a small patch of the disease.  To our delight the portion treated with  Zam-Buk' very quickly healed. We then  obtained a proper'supply,'and bet>an  the Zain Buk treatment. I am now  delighted to state that after having  used a few boxes, I am free from the  old trouble and completely cured" I  will never be without Zam-Buk in the  house as long as I live, and to all who  are troubled with skin diseases in any  form I would say, waste no time in  obtaining- a supply of Zam-Buk. Since  proving it iu my own case, I have obtained a supply for an old lady who  had an uker on her leg for 30 years.  Three boxes were sufficient to close the  wound."

Russell-Oaw-Cauifidld Co.  The Anaconda News made its appearance Wednesday after a month's  retirement, due to cold weather and the  illness of its enterprising editor, Mr.  R. Keffer. '  Many Greenwood people will tegret  to hear of the death of Mr, John  Keffer, father of Mr. Fred Keffer, of  the B. C. Copper company, which occurred lately at his home in Cleveland,  Ohio. Mr. Keffer, who had reached  the advanced age of 80, made many  friends here during his visi:s to Greenwood.  The following are a list of those  elected as officers of the various societies of St. Columba Presbyterian  church: Y. P. S. C. 13.���President,  Mr. S. Belt; vice president, Mrs. M.  D. McKee; secretary-treasurer, Miss J.  Murray. Chairman of Look Out Committee���W, S. Graham. Prayer Meeting Committee���A. H. Hook. Social  Committee���Miss B. McKenzie, Missionary Committee���Rev. M. D. Mc  Kee. The society is prospering and is  looking forward to a successful year's  work in 1907.  MASQUERADE CARNIVAL  The carnival at the skating rink last  night under the auspices of the Greenwood band, was largely attended and  proved a great success from every point  of view. Many of the costumes were  exceedingly picturesque, and the  judges, in some cases, had difficulty in  deciding to whom the prize should be  awarded. . Among the ladies, Mrs. C.  H. Fair as "Britania," and Mrs. Percy  Hallett as "Indian Princess," tied for  first prize, which, on a draw, resulted  in favor of Mrs. Fair, the prize being  a chatelaine watch donated by Logan  & Co., Mrs. Hallett taking second, a  sack of flour, donated by the Hunter-  Kendrick Co.  Howard Huff as the "Dutchman,"  carried off the gentleman's prize, a  gold headed umbrella, put up by P. W.  George & Co.  Alice McMynn as "Indian Girl,"  captured the girl's prize, a leather hand  bag, donated by Rendell & Co., while  Worthington Fair as "Uncle Sam,"  secured the handsome pair of hockey  skates from the Russell-Law-Caulfield  Co.  A handsome mandolin and case from  the Thomas Drug company went to  Ralph Coutts, who as "Pots and Pans,"  took-first place as the best comic costume, and for the most .original, Miss  Buckliss as the "Bat," won the prize,  a sack of flour, donated by Galloway  Bros. .  The judges were Mr. A. scott of  Montreal, Mr. Kendall and Mr. Ros-  seatt.  ��� " ���"  A SUDDEN CALL  day afternoon, many friend-* in Greenwood and Anaconda accompanying the  remains to the cemetery, Rev. M. D.  McKee conducting the service.  Charles Harrington, of Boundary  Falls, met with a peculiar accident  Wednesday night. While cutting some  taffy out of a dish with his jack-knife,  the weapon glanced from the hard surface of the candy and entered his left  hand nearly in th; center of the palm,  and running1 up ward toward the wrist  came out ou the opposite side. Mr.  Bach of the Dominion Copper company,  who happened to be passing, was hailed  and kindly drove the sufferer to Greenwood, where Dr. Openheimer attended  the- wounded member. The main  arteries were completely severed and  ten stitches in the palm aud two on the  back of the hand were required to close  the severe gashes inflicted.  Ben Perkins, the well knawn prospector of Rock creek, who only recently  bonded his property for a large sum to  P. J. Dermody and associates, died  Wednesday morning in the Sisters'  hospital of pneumonia. Deceased,who  was aged 63 years, has prospected over  the greater part of Southern B. C, and  was well known in Rossland, Greenwood and other camps, and, like many  another hill veteran, crossed the great  divide before benefitting from the results of his life's work. Little "s  known of his earlier history, and solicitor Hallett, who has charge of his  affairs, is at present endeavoring to  locate any heirs that may exist, with a  view of winding up the estate.  Word has been received from Tekoa,  Wash., of the death of A. O. Truax,  well known among local mining men  here, as the president of the Bay Mining X^oT���'^^="=^^i^^^=^-==^-���-"-ia^=^^  It is only a short time sinca Mr.  Truax was here in the best of health  and spirits, aud the news ot his death  was received with something like consternation by his fellow officers of the  company of which he was the head.  A. O. Truax was one of the pioneers  of the Tekoa district, a successful  business man, and one universally  respected and trusted by all who knew  him. In him the Boundary has lost a  goodfriend, as he had unbounded :aith  in the resources of this district and a  practical way of letting that be known,  as his investments here show.  Shortly after returning from his recent visit to Greenwood, he contracted  pneumonia, which in two days terminated fatally.  It is probable that a meeting of the  Bay directors wilt be held this week  to elect his successor as president of  the company. 0  Dangers of a Cold and How to Avoid  Them.  More fatalities have their origin in  or result from a cold than from any  other cause. This fact alone should  make people more careful as there is  no danger whatever from a cold when  it is properly treated in the beginning.  For many years Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy has been recognized as the  most prompt and effectual medicine in  use for this disease. It acts on nature's,  plan, loosens the cough, relieves the  lungs, opens the secretions and aids  nature   in   restoring  the system  to a  I healthy condition.

Consternation in  Conservative  Ranks  The Vancouver Daily World, in its  afternoon issue of Tuesday 1 ast, pub-  published what promises to be the  biggest political sensation the McBride  administration has yet produced.  Briefly, the history of the transaction  ie as follows:  "In 1905 a company, called the Transcontinental Exploration Syndicate, applied to R. F. Green, then chief commissioner of lands and works, for  leases of 32 sections of coal lands on  Pine river, which, when the early construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific  railway through that portion of British  Columbia is considered, are certain to  become of great and immediate value.  Representing the Transcontinental  Syndicate was Sir Adolph Caron, form  ^erly^^Cjm^ervatiye minister of the  crown at Ottawa. ��� ���  "The application was refused by Mr.  Green, who alleged, as his reason, that  the dominion government had not then  selected the 3,500.000 acres of land in  the northwest corner of this province  which were conveyed to it by the terms  of Settlement Act under which, the  Esquimalt & Nanaimo railway was  built. Later, a private arrangement  was arrived at by R. F. Green, representing the B. C. government, and Sir  Adolph Carou acting for the Transion-  tinental Exploration Syndicate, aud  the leases were granted.  "Caron had previously written to  Green to name a friend who could be  trusted to hold shares in the syndicate  in his (Green's) interest. Green replied,  thanking Caron for his beneficence  and naming Mr. McKay, then Premier  McBride's private secretary as a safe  person in whom to vest the ownership  of the shares. Caron wrote Green  stating that the value of the shares  ���which were to be given him as a free  gift, and which were rated at ,��1 18s  each, was $37,000. Green replied,  thanking Cat on for his very great  kindness. The leases were then issued  by the chief commissioner to the  Transcontinental Exploration Syndicate. Caron also secured leases for  coal lands on Telqua river in the same  section of the country, for which Gresn  was given another share in the name  of Neil McKay.  "Later on there was a hitch. Either  Green thought he had not received a  sufficiently large share of the plunder,  or objection was raised by one of his  colleagues. Be this as it may, twu  eminent  Conservative   lawyers,   then  placed in Mr. McKay's name, is in  Vancouver at this moment. Special  attention will be directed to the fact  that, although the executive council  meeting at which Mr. Green's conduct  was exposed was held in May last, the  other ministers, immaculate Mr. Cotton  included, continued to sit and act with  Green until the 22nd of December,  when the pressure from Vancouver  conservatives became so great that he  resigned from the lands and works  department. He is now at Kaslo engaged in an effort to cover his official  tracks by the return of Mr. Neil McKay, his former deputy, whom he plans  to succeed him in the lands and works  department.  residing, and still residing in Vancouver, were retained by Caron to press  his claims. Armed with the correspondence between Caron and Green, they  interviewed the executive council. At  that meeting all the members except  Mr. Fulton were present. The lawyers  were persistent in pressing Sir Adolph  Caron's claims. Mr. Green put up a  show of resistance, but was dumb-  founded when confronted by 3ir  Ad jlph Car >n's letter and his own letter thanking Sir Adolph for his great  kindness and instructing him to issue  the shares in Neil McKay's name.  "Tho difficulties must have been  smoothed away, for it was stated in the  Province, a government organ printed  :n Vancouver, on the 10th of October  last, that the Transcontinental Explor-  afioli- Sy:nidicafe"had"-been"formed^iu  London with a capital of $400,000 to  explore and develop the coal measures  in Telqua valley. In the interval that  elapsed between the granting of the  lea&e and the mysterious and abrupt  deposing of Mr, W. S. Gore from his  position as deputy of the lands and  works department, Mr. Neil McKav,  the premier's private secretary and  holder of $37,000 worth of Transcontinental Exploration Syndicate shares,  for the gift of wh'ch Mr. Green had  thanked Sir' Adolph Carson for his  great kindness, was appoinfed deputy  in Mr Gore's place- It wis probably  felt that the cisto'lian of the shares  should be changed at ;iny rate, and the  name of Granville Cuppage, a junior  clerk in the lands and works department at Victoria, appears i 1 the Province of October 10th as one of the  directors of this company that is about  to spend 5400,000 iu developing coai  lands along the line of the Grand  Trunk Pacific.  "From whom Mr. Cuppage got his  shares is not at present known, but  there is reason to believe that the $37,-  000 worth of stock which was originally  conveyed to Neil McKay are the shares  which Mr. Granville Cuppage represents, and by virtue of which he sits,  as a director of the company.  "The above is a plain narration of a  most appalling instance of provincial  governmsnt corruption. Readers will  have uo difficulty in arriving at a conclusion unfavorable to the government.  The correspondence has been photographed, and Mr. Green's letter thanking Sir Rudolph for his munificence  and   requesting   that   the   ah;.res   be  ABOUT YOUR HEADACHE I  You Must Agree in This:  That headache does not necessarily  mean there is anything wrong with  your head! That being so, you must  look to some other organ for the  trouble. Is the ache in the forehead,  does it cease if you press it? That is  nouralgi,c headache. Is it on one side  of the bead only? That is what the  doctors call "megrim." Both these  forms arise from lack of tone in the  system. Is your headache genersl and  accompanied by sickness or foul breath  or constipation? That kind of headache  is due to liver and stomach disorder.  Nine headaches in ten arise from these  causes. There are two methods of  treatment. One is to take headache  powders. This is like trying to escape  pain by; taking chloroform. The other  is to correct the organs which by their  derangement are causing the trouble.  That is the Bilean way! Bileans cure  headache by their beneficial operation  on the digestive system, the liver and  the blood. Correct these properly and  you will have no more headuche.  Mrs. G. R. Black, of 35 Blevins  Place, Toronto, says: "I suffered  acutely from headache. The attacks  were most violent and made ,me so ill  I could hardly do anything. The headache was accompanied by digestive  trouble, heartburn and constipation,  and it seemed as if I was going from  bad to worse.' Until I tried Bileans I  was unable to get anything which gave  me relief. Bileans, however, acted like  magic, They not only cured the headache, but also relieved me of the iudi  gestion, heartburn and constipation.  I have proved that, a .few doses of  Bileans will remove the most violent  headache, and as a cure for constipation there are absolutely unequal'ed.  No fumily should be without a box of,  Bileans on the shelf."  Bileans are purely herbal in their  composition and are also free from  alcohol. They are a cure for all digestive and liver disorders, constipation, piles, debility, anemia, blood  impurities, colds and chills, rheumatism, wind spasms, female ailments  and irregularities, sallow complexions  (due to bile in the blood), dizziness,  etc. All druggists sell at 50 cents a  box, or may be obtained post free from  the Bilean Co.. Toronto, on receipt of  price.    Six boxes for S2.S0.  A COAT PAR EXCELLENCE  The Dress Coat.SuitaMe for Any and  Every Occasion.  No costume that is at present in  general use by men presents more advantages than the frock coat. It shows  off a good figure to advantage, while  concealing the defects of a poor one.  Because they make 100 frock coats  every week, the Semi-ready frock coat  is better made than any custom tailor  making ten in a season can possibly  make one. For $25 one can buy a Semi-  ready frock coat, vest and trousers,  made in fine black cheviots. Silk  linings and facings make the suit cost  a little more. Dress suits and Tuxedo  jackets made by the Serai-ready Company are equally good and reasonable  in price.  P. W. George & Co. will be pleased  to show you how what "Semi-ready'  tailoring profits the wearer.  THE NEW COUNCIL  The new council held its first meet  ing in the civic offices on Monday eve  ning, the members present being  Aldermen Sutherland, Nelson, Gully,  Derosier and Wood, Alderman Sullivan  being absent. The oath of office was  administered by the police magistrate.  Owing to ' the absence of Mayor  Bunting, who is taking in the Cranbrook Bonspiel, little business was  transacted.  The auditor's report was accepted by  the old council and referred to the new  for consideration, and two members  recommended for seats on the boards  of police and license commissioners,  Alderman Sutherland being selected  for the former and Alderman Derosier  for the second named position.
