FLOOD,     Prop.  . "V'WWrfW***  Vancouver ia fast becoming one of  the great pleasure resorts of the Pacific coast. From all quarters of the  continent and from many parts of  Great Britain, Europe, and even of  Asia, tourists throng annually to enjoy  the cool sea breezes and witness the  glorious sunsets off English Day. The  fame of the Canadian Rockies and the  mild Pacific climate has done much to  invite pleasure seekers and those needing rest to visit the western sea port  of the Dominion.  In the hotels are to be met people  from practically all ot the states in the  American Union, from all over Canada, and the Orient sends over its  quota on the big ships that come  weekly into port, >vhile many come  from Europe by which ever route they  may prefer. The tourist trade of the  coast cities is a large item in the year's,  business, but during the summer  months it is naturally heaviest.  As a place to enjoy rest Vancouver  offers many attractions of: which the  sea beaches and Stanley park are the  greatest. English bay. is the favorite  resort for bathing and canoeing. It is  provided with pavilion and seats where  visitors may rest and enjoy the sea  breezes. This season the electric railway company opened Kitsilano Beach  around the point from English- bay  and'glabed' Noel,, S. Ross ?in*.. charge.  Considering that this is the first season  Kitsilano has become remarkably popular. : It has a splendid beach provided  with pavilion, lunch rooms, dressing  rooms and boat house. Much of the  success that has attended its first  season is due to the capable management of Mr. Ross^who takes a personal  interest in every visitor and sees that  his enjoyment is complete  STANLEY PARK.  Stanley park is a place of continual  interest It is not the property of the  city of Vancouver, but forms a part of  the Canadian military reserve, and  therefore belongsto.the federal gov^  ernmetit. It is held by the. city under  lease and improvements have been  prosecuted with as much vigor as if it  were the city's own property.

In order to see the interior  of the park with its beautiful flower  gardens, menagerie, lake and reservoir  the trip must be made on foot, and it  is well worth the exertion. It is a  feature of Vancouver as a pleasure resort that it is but a short distance from  the center of the city to the places of  greatest attraction. The parks and  the bathing beaches can all be reached  in a few minutes by street car or vehicle. A good surburban car system  connects the city with Steveston~at the  mouth of the Fraser river, where the  great salmon canneries are located;  New Westminster, the ambitious city  that once hoped to be the capital, and  other places of interest.  .    BUSINESS OPENINGS.  It is surprising that with such splendid bathing beaches, and such glorious  marine views, as are afforded at English bay and Kitsilano Beach, that enterprise has not established summer  hotels where tourists might spend the  season in the full enjoyment of all the  pleasures that land and sea so richly  afford.*? Visitors must either live at  down town hotels and visit the seaside  when they have opportunity, or take  rooms in private houses overlooking  the bay,-neither of which is satisfactory to;the majority. Vancouver also  lacks a?high class restaurant which  might foe compared with; the Mariaggi  in Winnipeg, * or Davenport's, in Spokane, thoughthe 100,000 Cafe, recently  started? is becoming a popular resort  for visitors as well as local people.  ';?'' A PROSPEROUS CITY?  The city of Vancouver is at present  enjoying its full share of the remarkable growth and prosperity that has  brought Canada into prominence before the whole world. It has now a  population of some sixty thousand and  the rapid growth of the past few years  promises to be far exceeded in the immediate future. Competent authorities predict that in less than five years  Vancouver will have a population of  one hundred thousand, That Jthere is  good reason for such hopes it is* necessary only to consider the great * (evel-  opment going on in all parts of the  country tributary to thai city. With  the Great Northern building a main  line from Winnipeg to Vancouver, the  C. P. R. building branch lines into new  districts, the G. T. P. and the Canadian  Northern, both of which will eventually build lines to Vancouver, opening  up the northern districts, Vancouver  will become the trade center and the  seaport for all Western Canada.  Columns might be written on its  manufacturing institutions, wholesale  houses, stores, banks, its coastwise and  "dlcWSi^oing-tnTde, building ^enterprises and the progressive character of  its people, but suffice it to say that all  things point to Vancouver becoming  one of the first cities of Canada and  one of th*j big cities of America.  VICTORIA THE BEAUTIFUL.  Victoria is the residential city of the  coast, the ideal spot to live and enjoy  quiet and rest. Its climate is superior  to Vancouver, having a better distributed rainfall with at least one-third  less. The summers are cool and re  freshing and the winters are so mild  that snow is practically unknown, and  roses bloom in February and March.  Such are the climatic conditions that  have attracted many wealthy people  from the colder parts of Canada to take  up their residence in Victoria. To the  visitor it is a city of beautiful homes,  stately churches and substantial business blocks. The residential district  is built upon a hill with its splendid  mansions overlooking the straits.while  in the far distance gleams the snowcapped Olympic mountains. Every  residence is surrounded with broad  lawns, gorgeous flower gardens and  groves of fruit and shade trees.  The business interests of the city are  well represented and are built upon a  solid footing. Business maybe marked  by less nervous activity, but it is sure  and sound. Mercantile houses carry  heavy lines of the best goods. Their  customers demand the beat and plenty  of it. The business blocks have not  begun to approach the sky-scraper  stage but they are well built and the  bank buildings have been constructed  with a view to both utility and beauty.

COPPER  COMPANY  The Reduction of Ores Will  sumed in Two Weeks.���Output  Largely Increased.  Be  Re-  Construction work at the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter has progressed far  enough to be able to make some definite announcement when the reduction  of ore is likely to be resumed. It is  expected that the first furnace will be  blown in about September 15th. Two  furnaces have been erected and the immense settling pots placed in position.  The third furnace has not yet been  started, as not all the fixtures have arrived from the manufacturers. It is  expected, however, that the smelter  will be running full blast before October. The steel frame work of the  furnace reom and converting plant has  been erected, but the siding and roofing remains to be put on. The electrical power machinery, with the three  im mens** fly wheels, are being placed  in position and will lie ready for uie by  the time they are required. The great  steel flues are all on the ground and  will be placed in position shortly.  When the work has all been completed  and the plant is running to full capacity some 1,800 to 2,000 tons of ore will  be reduced per day. Prior to the  shutting down of the furnaces early in  June the smelter was reducing between  three and four thousand tons or ores per  week, so that the improvements to the  plant will mean increasing the output  at least four fold.  These improvements will naturally  make it possible to handle a Jtriuch  larger output from the- company's  mines. During the past three months  extensive development work has been  carried on at the Mother Lode, Emma,  Oro Denoro and other properties owned  and recently bonded by the company.  At the Mother Lode $100,000 has been  spent in opening up deeper levels and  drifts, and by the time thr furnaces  are all going the mine will be in shape  to turn out much greater quantities of  ore than ever before.  At the Oro Denoro and Emma extensive developments have also been  going oti and these mines are now  TeadyfoiTopet^ations on much more extensive scales. At the B. C. mine the  old shaft has been cleaned out and  considerable prospecting has been  done.  During the period of reconstruction  the company's pay roll has remained  about the same as it was prior to the  shutting down of the furnaces. Many  of the men previously employed at the  ordinary work of the smelter secured  employment with the contractors.  When the smelter resumes operations  on a much larger scale the number of  men employed at the plant and also in  the mines will be increased by at least  one hundred and fifty, with a consequent increase in the monthly pay roll.  HAS RESIGNED  Continued on page 2  George Williams, who for the past  three years has been assistant manager and superintendent of construction for the B. C. Copper Co.. is severing his connection with the company  and is going to take a well-earned rest.  Mr. Williams will continue to hold his  present position until October first,  by which time the smelter improvements will have been completed. He  will visit Trail, Northport and other  smeltin**. centers while enjoying his  holiday.  Stomach Troubles and Constipation-  No one can reasonably hope for good  digestion when the bowela are constipated. Mr. Chas. Baldwin, of Edwards-  ville, 111., says: "I suffered from  chronic constipation and stomach  troubles for several years, but thanks  to Chamberlain's Scomach and Liver  Tablets am almost cured."

UNION WITH THE STATES  This topic is continually coming up for discussion, and it is  perhaps not to be marvelled at.  One of the strongest arguments  by the adA**ocates of a policy directed towards the realization of  this idea is the proximity of Canada to the,United States. There  is doubtless a great deal to be  said 'for that view. Notwithstanding this, however, it may  effectively be stated that the very  fact that those two nations having apparently so much in common, who use the same language,  obey, to all intents and purposes,  the same laws, practically worship at the same shrine, and  which exist side by side, should  be politically independent of each  other, is in. itself an indication of  . some great ultimate purpose  which is not at present discernible,  but which points to a continuance  of the existing relationship for  some time to come.  One thing is clearly evident,  namely, that almost the last  thing in the minds of the people  of Canada at the present time is  to part with their political independence to the powerful neighbor to the south.  That a fusion of the two nations will eventually take place  may very, well be believed; that  such a consummation will take  place in the near future there is  no indication whatever. Canada  is toowell pleased with her position in " the Olympus of nations"  to readily part with her hard-  earned liberties.  In addition to this, in spite of  geographical proximity there are  artificial barriers which separate  the two countries and of the removal of which there is no im-  ~ni^diat^~pfdspeTt^7^"Cana"da^��ls^  not unnaturally looks to the large  centers of population -in those  countries which fly the same flag  as she herself does, and which  pay homage to the same ruler, as  markets forflthe superabundance  of her own products. The situation has been very tritely summed up by a writer in one of our  leading dailies as follows: " The  Union Jack will wave over Canada just as long as the Stars and  Stripes will wave over the capi-  tol at Washington.".  The present tendency in Canada  is to make the most of the British connection. The new transcontinental railway will operate  towards that end. This is aptly  stated in the following: " The  Grand Trunk Pacific will thread  every province, string them like  a strand of beads, bind together  the two semi-detached ends of  the Dominion, and strengthen  the chain that holds the scattered  colonies of the British Empire."  ���The Canadian Scotsman.  IN FRANKLIN CAMP  Dominion Copper Makes First Payment  on Gloucester Group.  "One of the arrivals in the city re  cently was L. A. Stadler, a minings  engineer of Butte, v.ho left for Franklin with A. D. McPhee," says the  Grand Forks Gazette. "A. B. Mackenzie,   secretary   of   the    McKinley  mines, was here on Monday, as was  also Mr. Stone of the Diamond Drill  Contracting Co. Matters connected  with the McKinley were talked over  and* Mr. Mackenzie left for Rossland  on Monday, Mr. Stone taking* the train  for Spokane, to return again shortly to  arrange for more diamond drill work  on the McKinley, Mr. t-'.tabler goes to  the camp for the purpose of surveying  the work already done on the McKin ���  ley, "*nd to assist Supt. McPhee in  laving out future work, and will probably remain in camp some weeks.  "One drill has just been removed to  the Banner, where a considerable  amount of work will be done, the necessary water being conveyed by 3,000  feet of piping from the spring u"ar the  Gloucester. The other drill remains at  the McKinley, and is sinking" on the  body of magnetic iron recently uncovered, and somewhat over 200 feet has  now been -Trilled. After a careful  looking over of not only the McKinley,  but the adjoining claims under bond to  the company, Messrs. McPhee and  Stabler will decide on the ex'.ent and  manner of development work to be  carried on in the immediate future.  galena at the union.  "On Tuesday last Mike McDonnell  made a strike of considerable importance on the Union claim, lying to the  southeast of the Maple Leaf. The ore  is'quartz, carrying galena, ihe best  sample yet uncovered in the camp. The  Union isowned by Michael McDonnell,  J. C. Henderson of Phoenix, Pat Ma-  ginnis and Lewis Johnson. The ore  was struck by McDonald arid PatMa-  ginnis of Eholt.  "T. R. Drummond of the Dominion  Copper Co., has made the gratifying  announcement that the first payment  of $3,000 has been made to Thomas  ���Newby and his associates on*the Gloucester group in Franklin camp. The  bond was given last May for a period  of IS months Since that time the  Dominion Copper Co. has had a force  of men at work upraising in the Gloucester tunnel, and, in addition, the  shaft has been cleaned out.  "'Have you succeeded in striking  ore?' Mr?.Drummond was asked.  "'No,' was the reply, and Mr. Drummond added with a smile, 'I. should  suppose that the fact that ��� we...have  made this payment should show that  we have a good deal of faith in the  can-ip. As a matter of fact I do not  expect to find indications of ore. until  we break right into it, as the foot wall  is well defined and the ore not frozen  to it?but with a selvedge that permits  of a clean break of the ore itself from  the footwall. The ore dips iu the shaft  about 25 degrees, and we are upraising  at an angle of 60 degrees. So far the  air in the tunnel has been good.'  "Asked as to future operations Mr.  Drummond stated .that the same niim  ber of men w<?uld be kept on, and work  continued in the tunnel. The next  payment does not fall due till February  23rd, which will give the company  ample time to develop. -There is no  intention of drilling at present.  "Mr. Bash of Greenwood, who assisted in the negotiations between the  contracting parties, accompanied Mr.  DrumuiciKLfrom__Franklin.    The sub  stantial payment made is good news to  people here who are as one in wishing  to see the Dominion CopjerCo. achieve  success in the camp up the river. Congratulations are in order also to Thos.  Newby and his associates who owned  the Gloucester group."  THE MERCHANT'S CORNER  Personal Solicitation of Trade���Keep  Always After It-  A good authority says that it is a  mistaken idea with a good muuy retailers and clerks that it is good business  to throw off business cares the moment  they shut the store door behind them.  While it is undoubtedly good business  for the nervous man, yet the enthusiastic trade pusher can enjoy his business as much outside his store as in it.  He sees his bnsine.-,* grow, and that  gives him enthusiasm and energy to  work anywhere.  An illustration ������f the way some men  keep after busim ss is supplied by the  following   incident:      Two   shoe  men  were  riding   in a steam  car to Boston  one day, and were discussing the various  manufacturing   establishments of  the country.    One of them praised the  plant  of the  National  Cash   Register  company of Dayton,   Ohio.    Then the  man in the seat in front turned around  and   said,   "Thank  you for that," and  he passed out his card.    He  proved  to  be a gold medal salesman for  the- National  Cash   Register   company.    The  incident illustrates the  way   the   prize  winning salesman keeps after business.  Shoemen   may   likewise   keep   after  business.    It is the policy   of this particular shoe   firm, whose  customer collecting methods are  being  considered,  to expect   its  managers   and clerks  to  keep pushing its business.    Its managers are noteworthy for Iheir  el forts to  keep in the public eye. Their salesmen  who are  ambitious, likewise  endeavor  to keep in   the  eye  of  their acquaintances.    At lunch at the  noon hour, or  at a social  gathering   in the  evening,  they adroitly, and politely, bring about  the topic of shoes, pass out their cards,  and invite  their  new  acquaintance to  come  around  and  see   th**m.    This  is  but a detail of the moment, but it results  in   the   distribution   of   a  good  many  cards,   and   in   the   bringing of  man*,* customers to the stores.  ���^rogrommffliTO^^  THE COAST CITIES  (Concluded from first page)  of the provincial legislators in the  winter, it naturally enjoys a large  amount of transient trade and this has  had its effect upon the number and  splendor of its hotels.

Word comes that a o-ood' mil ing*  exhibit will be seen at the i-pokane  Interstate fair this year, which opens  September 24. Robert H. Cosgrove,  manager of the fair, lias preserved all  the exhibits which have been jrnlhered  during the last two or ihree ye-\.rs?:md  this in itself mak-**?**. a pfood display of  the mineral resoun.es of the Pacific  northwest. Besides these, however,  many camps are sending in new-specimens which will freshen up (heir displays and show the latest developments  of their mines and the new discoveries.  Geo. William' Cornish of Greenwood,  B.' C, is preparing entire new exhibits  of the big mines of the Boundary  country, which will be shipped to the  fair this year: Tlie ' Boundary in the  past has had some of the best ore ever  seen at Spokane.  Many new exhibits wi'l be made by'  the mines of 'the Coeur d'Alenes. This  district has been forging ahead with  great rapidity during the past year and  the, mining men believe that* while in  the past they have had representative  showings of their properties at* the  Spokane fairs, it is quite necessaiv  that these be added to * .in order, to  properly represent the mines of this  Vtoyr. famous section. It is the desire of  the management' of the fair that all  the districts-in the Pacific northwest  follow the example of the Coeur  d'Alenes and the Boundary, and  ���trtngthen their displays at the fair,  ���rhich lasts two weeks 1 his year, instead of one, and( will be a greater  benefit to all miners who exhibit. Several new camps and discoveries will  mane a showing f< r the first time.  ��� The Woodmen of the World gathered  ��� in**'-force August 19, on the Spokane  Interstate fair .grounds,, and built a  log* cabin which will be handsomely  furnished by the organization and used  as-the headquarters for the reception  : of'.-all visitors. Several thouand are  expected in attendance from various  parts of the Pacific Northwest, and  some will come from die ��� east. The  Woodmen made quite an occasion of  this house raising,* and fallowed it by a  family picnic on the grounds. They  are giving a great deal of attentiotrto  preparations for their special day. at  the fair, which this year is Tuesday,  October 2. Reports received indicate  that almost every camp in Eastern  Washing-tori: and many..tof those., in  Northern Idaho will be represented in  force on that' day. The organization  *wiil?give.a parade in the evening and-  will have many special features.  LECKIE SHOE FACTORY  A Growing Concern. -The Home of  Goott Footwear.  One of the manufacturing institutions of Vancouver that is contributing- to the upbuilding of that city is  the Leckie shoe factory, where the  famous Leckie shoes are made. Leckie  shoes are known to both dealer and  customer as thoroughly reliable, and for  the miner, prospector and lumberman  the most satisfactory "on^the market"  today. In order to reach and maintain  ���o^high a standard of quality the greatest care is exercised in the selection of  leathers, for nothing but leather of the  best quality is used.  The factory is in charge of a highly  competent foreman, who takes a personal interest in seeing that only the  best of materials, combined with the  most skilled workmanship, enters into  the production" of the Leckie boot. The  machinery equipment has been selected  with a view to securing the best results  and no boot is turned out without being  carefully and thoroughly pegged. Besides heavy boots for miners, prospectors and lumbermen, Leckie makes a  heavy walking boot for street wear in  mountain towns. It is a strong, neat,  servicable boot, durable and comfortable.  The capacity of the factory has recently been increased and the present  output averages 108 pairs per day.

The folly of it lies in the certainty of its exposure with the attendant disappointment and distrust, and  yet, unmindful of the fcet that the  results alone will justify any .statements  made, the thoughtless and unscrupulous continue to enlarge upon, the  truth.  This tendency to improve upon natural conditions is not al.way malicious,  but its existence in the make-up of  men is the cause of conservative individual* and companies keeping their  operations carefully guarded. As an  example of the injustice that may be  done by exaggeration, suppose that the  news of a strike is announced. The  announcement cannot be many times  repeated before the size and richness  of the vein have been increased several  fold. From inches to feet, and from  tens to hundreds of dollars, the size  and value grow as they are repeated.  The news reaches the ears of the  Stockholder and director, the stock is  affected, and enhances in value, and  numerous other conditions are create!  ���which subsequently suffer damage  when the manager is unable to produce  the results which the reports seem to  justify. The disappointed shareholder  and director conceive the idea that the  earnings of their company are being  dissipated, and demand the removal of  the manager; the 'tock suffers and the  purchasers learn to distrust reports-,  and in general   the   end   of that com  pany may be disaster, before time has  been granted to make a fair showing  on its true basis.  We.are of the opinion that a manager.is wise who throws the safeguard  of a certain nniount'of privacy around  his operations. Thus left to work out  his own salvation on the basis of  actual conditions in the mine, he can  at any. lime show that a fair, expenditure has been made of the funds entrusted to his care, and will not suffer  personal injury through false reports  gaining currency in case the project  fails. As we haye stated before, the  truth should be sufficient, and if deception must be practiced, let it be on  the side of conservatism ���Miiiing Reporter.

FREE WATER IN EARTH'S CRUST  To the miner who encounters water  in its underground courses, both as a  detriment and as an advantage, the  total amount of free, available water  in the crust of the earth is an interesting" problem for speculation, if not for  calculation. Prior lo the extensive  work which has marked the hydrolase  branch of the United States ideological  survey, a number of calculations were  made based upon certain known physical properties aud capacities of recks  in their relation to circulating- water.  These calculations all had the inherent  error of assuming- almost uniform conditions underground, and one of the  moat* important features of tlie work  above mentioned.has been the dispell  ing of these erroneous nolions and the  establishing of a more tenable theory  on which to estimate the amount of  free water circulating underground.  Among the many estimates that have  been made are those of Delesse, who  regarded the quantity of underground  water as sufficient to cover the earth  with a layer 7,500 feet thick; Schlicter,  who postulated a quantity sufficient to  cover the globe with a sheet of 3,500  feet depth; Chamberlin.and Sa'.isbury,  who assume that it would form a layer  1,600 feet thick; and Van Hise, whose  modest estimate would only permit of  a sheet 226 feet deep over the continental areas. Manifestly the estimates  have been based on widely varying  ideas and observations, and while space  will not permit going into details regarding them, it may be added that the  more recent investigations have made  it clear that the problem is by no means  .ts simple as has been assumed by  earlier writers.  , Of interest to'the-mining- fraternity  is the depth to which underground  waters circulate. On this point the investigations of the geological survey  are interesting. "There arc. two quite  diverse views held in regard to the significance of the evidence afforded by  mines as to underground water conditions, one being that they show the  waters to increase in amount with  depth, and the other that the circulat  ing waters are largely of meteoric  origin aud are essentially superficial.  The diversity of opinion is the natural,  result of the familiarity with a certain  class of mines to the exclusion of others. In many instances the conditions  in regards the ground waters are controlled by accident of topography,- es  pecially in the case of the shallow  mines, the evidence presented by which  is, in fact, of slight value."  From tabulated results of the work  of the survey, il appears, however, thai  certain generalizations can be made  that will apply to all conditions. "For  instance, it appeats that in the deep  mines iu the crystalline rocks of the  eastern portion of the country, in  which there has been no igneous activity .since early geological times, water  is rarely found below the 600-foot level,  the mines in some instances being  practically dry from surface to bottom.  In the west, where igneous activity is  more recent, the underground waters  are m o r^T^b undarff? "especial Ty w He re"  the rocks are severely shattered, as in  the Colorado mines where much water  occurs even at the lowest levels.

In  a new country people are working daily  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis^  trict, and for the improvementof the coiv  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live. Every act of daily life  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or indirectly for the inv  provement of society generally. In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part, Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all. local happen^  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Amon*' its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments. In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor,  ��������� m*w- .i *i^ t*z* ucrr. -i_.-. oi1  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do .  its full and complete share in the upbuild/  ing and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary district It is not handle  capped .in its -work by any restraining ob/  ligations to any party, clique or corpora*-  tion. but it is free at all times to rise up  and promote the best interests of the City  of Greenwood and its people. To do this  most thorouohlv and satisfactorily the  Times must have the support and cooper a/  tion of the citizens of Greenwood,  Every effort is being put forth to make  the Times the class of newspaper the  people want, Increasing attention is being  continually paid to mining news, especi*-  ally of that nature that will interest0 those  employed in the work as well as those  whose capital is invested in the properties,  With this end in view we aim to have  A Subscriber in Every Honne  As a result of the efforts that have already  been put forth, we believe that an increas***"  interest is already being taken in its news  columns, We have evidences of this from  the fact that the subscription list is already  growing; the street sales are increasing  weekly and the news dealers find more  demand for each succeeding issue, This is  a satisfactory condition of affairs that acts  in two ways, It increases ihe revenue of  the circulation department and it makes the  paper a first-class advertising medium for  local business men.  In handling local advertising every effort  if put forth to protect the Greenwood mer/  chant.

A large party of Spokane business  men' have plunned a trip for next  month, during which they will visit  among other places, Grand Forks, Nelson, Kaslo, Rossland, Phoenix and  Republic. The .secretary of the local  board of trade wrote L. G. Munroe, of  Spokane, who has charge of the arrangements, inviting the party to visit  Greenwood. Mr. Munroe has written  that it will be impossible to include  Greenwood in the itinerary. In the  course of his letter he says: "We extremely regret that railway facilities  are not such that we can avail ourselves of your kind invitation, as many  of the business men have expressed a  desire to visit Greenwood. If Greenwood could be reached from Republic  via the Great Northern we would certainly go to your town for luncheon  and divide up the time given to Phoenix with you.!' The trip has been arranged entirely over the Great Northern and consequently Greenwood has  to be left out.  PLENTY OF WATER  Reservoirs Well Filled Up With Sparkling Aaua Pura.  The threatened water famine has  happily been averted and there is now  a good supply of pure water available,  sufficient for the city's needs. The  reservoir, which had reached a dangerously low level a few weeks ago, has  filled up again and there is little fear  of any water famine now.  Speaking to the city health officer  regarding the quality of the water, he  said that it was perfectly safe to use  it for ordinary purposes. The usual  care in using water during the dry  season should be exercised, but there  was no danger of serious results from  its ordinary domestic use.  Enquiry was made a t th* hospital regarding the number and severity of  the fever patients. There are sixteen  cases now under treatment,, bat of  these few are1 from the city. Most  ���of**-\ hecases=areirj3m^he^countrydis^  tricts, especially from Midway. The  disease is of a mild type and none of  the patients are'dangerously ill.

DOMINION COPPER  A Boston report says: "The Dominion Copper company earned S32.000 net  during July, bringing total net for nine  months to approximately 5232,000. The  company now has a cash surplus of  about 5750,000..  COPPER DISCOVERY  About four miles to the east of the  Britannia group and tributary to South  Valley, Howe Sound, there has just  been discovered and located a copper  property which in immensity of deposit  and richness of ore is declared to be  the superior of the claims belonging to  the Howe Sound Copper company, says  a Vancouver exchange. The claims,  eight in number, were only slaked last  week, but already they have been bonded for S150.000 on a fifteen-day option  io a Canadian Syndicate, headed by  local men, whose identity has not yet  been<��� revealed. An exhaustive examination of the property is now being  conducted. Among those interested is  Captain J. A. Cates of the Terminal  Steamship company. Convinced by  reports he had heard that there was  valuable mineral to the east of Britannia, he sent out two prospectors, and  the result was the staking ol these  eight/claims.  ��  ��  tt  ��  �����  tt  tt  tt  tt  tt  ��  Bird Season Opens Sept. 1st  ��:-->^inhi-.;i-.-.v��i- l 'I'll'"'"���"  Shot  Guns,  Rifles,  Ammunition,  Tents,  WagonCovers  Give Us Your   Order   For Horse  Blankets.

The discovery of cobalt ores in large  quantities in northern Ontario, and the  limited market for that metal have had  a disastrous effect upon its price,which  has fallen from S3 a pound to 36 cents  a pound.  At the present'time the metal is used  wholly for pigments, chiefly for coloring- glass or tlie glaze for pottery,  beautiful blue, green, yellow and  bronze colors suitable for these purposes being obtained from cobalt base.  The metal is said to be very effective  for electrical storage batteries, while  as a plating material it is much superior to nickel, the coating" being  harder, lighter and more tenacious. It  tarnishes very slowly and is not easily  attacked by most acids or by   alkalies.  The present small silver coinuge of  Canada, especially the 5-cent, pieces, is  inconvenient and e.-sily lost. In the  place o.f these small silver coins, it is  purposed to substitute a larger coin of  cobalt approximating in size the nickel  S-cent"piece of the United States, while  a smaller coin will replace tlie present  bronze cent. Owing to its hardness,  malleability and lack of tarnish, cobalt  is an ideal metal for the  coins  of low  ���     ��� ,  value.    It will furnish an   unique coinage, and will assist -greatly in absorb  ing the surplus of cobalt now being  mined. The issue ol these coins would  st-cure a considerable profit to the government, and their introduction would  fittingly mark the establishment of  the new Canadian mint at Ottawa.  In the early '80s bar mining was  practiced to some considerable extent  in the lower portion of the Stewart  river in the Yukon territory, but the  upper waters of that river have been  practically unknown. The geological  survey, through Mr. J. Kule, investigated the region last yeai and is now  having his report published. That  those upper waters do not traverse the  desolate region one might suppose, is  shown by Mr. Kule's report. Mr. Kule  found gold in the gravels of many of  the small streams flowing over this  area, but whether there is sufficient  gold to pay* for mining, can only be  determined by the usual process of  reaching bed rock.  Dr. Robert Bell, chief geologist of  the geographical survey, has just returned from a three months' visit to  the old countrj*. He spent a large part  ot the time in examining the more important coal and iron deposits and inquiring into tlie methods of treatment  of the ores, particularly at Middles-  boro, in the north of England. The  noted geologist also made special inquiry into the methods of preparing  peat for market.

Coal has been struck at the Canadian  Consolidated company's mine at Port  Richmond, Nova Scotia. A drill pene  trated a hole 200 feet deep, striking a.  bed of coal seven feet thick. The dip  is 12 degrees. It was first thought it  headed to the southwest, but investigation shows it to be to the northeast.  Several other bed* overlap each other.  It is shown to be a very valuable de -  posit.  The right of way of the Temiskatiling & Northern Ontario railway from  the 101st mile post to the 105th mile,  less the station grounds, not quite a  mile in length, in the center, ah Ottawa  syndicate of ten members has secured  from the commission exclusive privileges to prospect and mine on the right  of way, 99 feet wide. At the northern  end of Cobalt lake the right of way  widens aud the privileges of the concessionaries extend over this area. The  right of way is very rich iu ore, the  line running- close to the Timmins and  Tutheroy mines, worth many millions  of dollars; to the Silver Queen mine,  recently sold for $1,500,000; to the Mc  Kinley and Danagh mine, ju.-.t purchased by New Yorkers 1or $400,000; to  the Derm ison & Buffalo mine, and to  other valuable properties. It also runs  a third of a mile into the famous Gillies  Limit, so ricli iu silver. The Ottawa  syndicate secured this property for  $50,000 and certain royalties. The exact terms of the sale are unknown, the  sale being made secretly, a member1 of  the syndicate being a son of one of the  railway commissioners. Qui1e a storm  has arisen throughout Ontario over the  transaction, and it is thought that by  force of pressure of public opinion  against the transaction the sale will be  cancelled by the Ontario  government  i^mmmit^mmmm^^imm^^wmiim  CURLEW LAKE  D. C. McMORRIS, Sec.  J. J. MALONE, Pres.  Changing from Beautiful Lakelet to  Stagnant Pond. ��� ��� v  "There isunmistakabl: evidence that  Curlew lake, that beautiful body of  water a few miles north of Republic,  which has become the popular hot-  season resort Of many local people, is  doomed to stagnation unless the county  authorities take the remedy in hand  and apply it at an early date," says an  authority on the subject. "Already  this body of water, which the Indians  have not inappropriately named the  'Tear of the Mountains,' has so far  stagnated as to drive the sometime  plentiful fish to purer waters. LVate  pleasure seekers have observed with  disgust that a water once pure and  wholesome to the taste is no longer fit  for the human stomach.  "The explanation of Ihe phenome  non appears to be that the lake is overflowing the fiat and swampy laud near  the south end. The flat lands are made  up of lake silt and muck to a depth in  places of many feet. It is possible  with one's own strength to push a stick  many fen into the flat over which the  waters of Curlew lake are now gradu  ally rising. The thinly submerged  lands =are"=wh i pped^in to^mud^by" the;  winds and the contamination has gradually rea< hed to the lower end of the  lake where \h<: outlet is partly dammed  by a delta built up of calcareous sediment which hardens and against which  the action of the outflowing current  has no appreciable effect. It is the  ever-growing delta that causes the  overflow of the mud flats at the south  end and is rapidly bringing Curlew  lake to the condition of a stagnant  pond. A citizen of Republic who has  made a study of the l.tke conditions for  several years and who has spent much  time on the lake fishing during a number of seasons bears out what others  have observed, that unless the county  commissioners or others in authority  cause the present outlet of the lake0to  be opened and enlarged so that a free  flow of water may take place through  the length <*>f Curlew lake, that body of  water will not long remain the pride of  the citizenship of the county."

He knows that thj  bright sunshine may last but a dav,  and he prepares for the showers which  are so liable to follow. So it should  be with every household.
