Ottawa, January 31.���Way back in  Bruce county, many years ag-o, I went  to school. One of the authorized school  readers had a lesson under the title  '���A Burnieside Feast." Fine linen,  fine dishes, fine service were provided  for the hungry but nothing to eat. The  first session of the present parliament  reminds me somewhat of that ancient  feast. There was nothing lacking in  the preparations for the grand opening,  everything was complete from a brand  new governor-general to the well  dressed soldiers who shivered in the  cold awaiting his arrival. Since the  opening day parliament* has been conducted with due regard to all those  formalities that are still so necessary  even in a counfry so democratic as our  own, but the bill-of-fare up to date has  been a "somewhat meagre one and with  the exception of a measure to grant  provincial autonomy to the Northwest,  the remaining days of the session do  not hold out much hope for those who  are anxious to do something for their  country during their first session. The  older members have had a surfeit of  six, seven and nine month- sessions  and both sides of the house are determined to get away from Ottawa before  May 1st.   ,  During every session of parliament  one can find some British Columbian  in the rotunda of the Russell House.  The usual number has been increased  this year. The cry for better terms  has had its effect-^nd the various delegations are endeavoring to secure these  better terms in chunks.  The irrepressible Norman McLean  is here after a subsidy for the Coast-  Kootenay railway. Dr. Bell Irving  and Robert Kerr want a closed season  for salmon during 1906 and 1908 and  Richard Hall, M.P.P., a representative  Victorian, is here to oppose anything  and every thing-Vancouver-wants.-The  advance guard of the big lumber delegation has arrived. W. C. Wells is  here as gay and debonair as the  youngest of the youngsters; Bob  Beattie, of Cranbrook, filled himself up  with Old Man Simpson's slogan,  "Fp?m the best town in the best district in the best province in the Dominion," and he has that satisfied  look that a good cause brings. Joe  Deachamps is here to help the boys  get a lumber duty but Joe recently  married a charming wife who is with  him and for the nonce free lumber has  no terrors for him. Frank Patterson,  of Vancouver, full of facts and figures,  is anxiously awaiting the time when  he can turn himself loose on the cabinet and in the meantime he is experimenting on the Manufacturers' Association at Toronto. These are only the  advance agents of. the big lumber delegation. When they are all here,  Ottawa, the slowest, stupidest and  least progressive capital city in the  world, will probably be awakened by  the noisy enthusiasm of the wild and  woolly webt.  But the list of westerners is not yet  complete. There are here a number of  railway men and some who are not  railway men, waiting to get contracts  on ihe Grand Trunk Pacific.  Speaking of railways one has to go  away from home to hear the news. In  the days of old, provincial govern ments  kept themselves in power by omnibus  railway bills for which the majority of  members voted, fearful that defeat  would mean no railway for their own  particular districts.

A).->r-,e  is now on tlie coast to size up the situation and satisfy himself thai Mr.  Bodwell's man, Friday, is strong  enough to deliver the goods.  The C.P.R. too are getting into the  game. A Mr. Loss, who had an option  on the Midway and Vernon charter,  has acquired the Nicola and Similkameen charter and is asking for authority to extend the line from Penticton  to Midway. He is going to the provincial government for aid and it is  semi-oEficially stated that he is acting  for the C.P.R. It is also rumored that  Loss is behind the McLean Bros, and  in the event of them getting anything  in the shape of subsidies that will be a  .temptation. to the'C.P.P., that company, through Mr. Loss, will take over  McLean Bros', interests.  McBride is a versatile soul. Not only  is he going to get three powerful companies building railways - on paper-  but he is going to catch, with a big  irrigation scheme, some of the recalcitrant members. He is going to borrow  $1,000,000 for irrigation purposes in the  iriterior. Incidentally he will take  ��tar the dyking indebtedness of Mats.-  qui aud other places along the Fraser.  This ia a scheme that is likely to appeal  to L. W. Shatford, the member for  Similkameen. He has been threatening to kick over the traces but now he  and his brother have acquired the big  Ellis estate, he may be anxiously looking for a slice of the million.  I haven't yet ascertained how McBride hopes to keep George Fraser in  line.  YaUB-CARIBOO.  i >' < i  ���O'ru'H  ,.'' It i  rm  rAft  BOUNDARY FALLS CONCERT.  A very successful conceit was held at  Boundary Falls Wednesday evening  last. A splendid programme consisting of songs, recitations and gramophone music was rendered by Boundary Falls and Greenwood talent. A  very excellent part of the entertainment was the lunch provided by the  ladies-which-was.especiai!y-en;joyed-by  the Greenwooders. The hall, kindly-  given by Messrs. Smith & McEwen,  was so packed that as load after load  from Greenwood drove up the question  was asked, "Where are we going to  put them." The proceeds are to be devoted to the purchase of an organ for  use in the religious service* there.  The success of the entertainment is a  proof of what can be done by a long  pull, a strong pull and a pull altogether. The Boundary Falls citizens  are to be congratulated on this their  first concert of the season.  For Rent���Three roomed furnished  house.   Asply at this office.  Startling But True-  People the world over were horrified  on learning of the burning of a Chicago theater in which nearly six hundred  people lost their lives, yet more than  five times this number or over 3,000  people died from pneumonia in Chicago during the same year, with scarcely  a passing notice. Every one of these  cases of pneumonia resulted from a  cold and could have been prevented by  the timely use of Chamberlain's Cdugh  Remedy. A great many who had  every reason to fear pneumonia have  warded it off by the prompt use of this  remedy. The following is an instance  of this sort: "Too' much c\nnot be  said in favor of Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, and especially for colds and  influenza. I know that it cured my  daughter, Laura, of a severe cold, and  I believe saved her life when she was  threatened with pneumonia."���W. D.  Wilcox, Logan, New York Sold by  all druggists,  "Visitor Says Local Mining" Conditions  Are Ideal.  M. M.Johnson, M.E., of Salt Lake  City, Utah, returns home tomorrow  after a fortnight's stay in the Boundary. He is conceded to be one of the  ablest mining engineers in the United  States, enjoying the advantage of a  professional experience extending over  a period of thirty years. Mr. Johnson  is general manager of all the mines  owned by Samuel Newhouse, the  largest individual mining operator in  Utah and Colorado. He formerly had  charge of the Highland Boy mine,  Bingham, Utah, which Mr. Newhouse  sold to the Standard Oil people for  about $13,000,000. The mine has paid  $2,586,000 in dividends, its net profits  last year being $900,000. The enormous size of the copper-gold deposits  of the Boundary have deeply impressed  Mr. Johnson, whose favorable report  thereon will probably result in the  diversion of new capital in this direction. With praiseworthy candor, the  visitor frankly admits that the Boundary possesses mineral resources,  which are destined to become great  factors in the copper market; and what  especially appeals to him is the self-  fluxing character of the ores, ensuring  low costs of smelting, and the modern  raining methods in vogue at all the big  mines.  "I came here professionally on behalf of eastern American capitalists,"  said Mr. Johnson to the Times at the  Imperial last evening. "I don't think  I am betraying any confidence when I  state that I am favorably impressed  with the Boundary district. An inspection of the principal mines has  proved a perfect revelation to me. The  Granby company certainly possesses  the largest copper-gold body I have  ever seen. The vastness of the slopes  and the millions of tons in sight are  well calculated to impress.even a veteran engineer unfamiliar with the  -conditions as_they_exist-in_theJ3oius-_  dary. Great as the development has  been during the past four years, I am  credibly informed that this section in  a comparative sense has scarcely been  scratched. The methods of ore extraction are up-to-date and could not be  improved upon. When you can mine  ore without timbering the costs are  reduced to a minimum, The'glory hole'  system is a wonder. There seems to  be little oxidation, and the occurence  of zones of secondary enrichment are  consequently absent. However, the  ore seems to be very uniform in value.  With costs of mining and smelting  figured out to a cent, and with vast ore  reserves, the problem of mining here  presents the same characteristics as  those of a large manufacturing establishment.  ,:Your ores being self-fluxitig ensure  low treatment costs. It seems marvellous that two furnaces can treat 700  tons daily, an actuality I witnessed at  the Montreal & Boston smelter. The  same results, I understand, are being  accomplished at the other plant* at  Greenwood and Grand Forks. If the  ores are being treated a* a net cost of  $1.25 per ton, as is claimed, the Boundary possesses a record that has never  been equalled elsewhere. All you need,,,  is capital to open up the ore bodies.-/. V  The greatest concern of the metallur-'f.  gist will be to keep pace with mining ���  development and provide the treatment  facilities. I have no hesitation in saying that the Boundary offers asafeand  inviting field for the employment of  capital. My only regret is that I did  not see the country with the snow off  Continued on last page  /" BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.

It  is   a   truism  that   one  has .got  to  go   away  from home  to  learn  the   news.  The   Dominion   capital   is   just  ���Off a  Mecca  of   lobbyists   and  business men who  have  axes  to  grind;    and     British    Columbia  seems in that   respect to be ?s  well represented   as  any of  the  other provinces.   A new sidelight  is thrown on the  provincial railway situation.     If subsidies are  forthcoming the next few months  should should  witness the commencement  of  railway construction   west  from   Midway.    Perhaps the most important piece of  news" contained   in   the   special  correspondence is  the  disclosure  of Premier McBride's   "new  policy."     In his desperate attempts  to retain power   and  increase his  strength,   Mr.    McBride  will resort to measures   well  calculated  to increase the provincial indebtedness.       It      is     questionable  wBetber   the   people. of . British  Columbia will sacrifice their heritage by calmly acquiescing in the  proposition   to   aid    the   Grand  Trunk Pacific enterprise by making large land grants in  return  for0 the railway company's, support.    No legislation such a**.! the'  government proposes stands <j.ny  chance of passing the legislature  as at present constituted;   and  if  the house were dissolved and the  McBride  policy   were   made   an  issue the fate of the conservatives  would not be long in doubt if the  public had an opportunity of expressing   its   sense of outraged  justice.    The   exposure   of   Mr.  McBride's   attempt    to    play   a  three-cornered    game   with   the  trans-continental      railways     is  timely.     The premier will be an  adept  if  he  can   satisfy each of*  these   corporations   without   incurring the,.suspicion of unduly  favoring  one  at the expense of  the���others.���Mean-while���not���a  thought is  taken  of the people,  who after all have got to pay the  bill.  A reec-nl; issue ,.of -the 'World's  Work, a leading.-American-magazine, con'?:i"ins' ;in artible on Canada's -atiiuiil.e .towards the United  States, based" c)u replies to the  foil owin g' question'' which was  submitted before the recent Federal election, to three hundred  leading men pf. the Dominion.: -\  "If Canada could be merged into the  United States-: with no loss of self-  respect, and with no friction with England; becoming* a section of the United  States, as the eastern, southern, or  Pacific Coast states are sections���not  annexed, nor absorbed, nor swallowed  up, but completely merged, so that all  residents of the continent above the  Mexican line should meet upon a plane  of absolute equality as citizens of one  country and go forward to the building up of the continent���under these  conditions, would you be in favor of  this complete uniting of the two  nations ?"  The replies received to the enquiry convinced the author that  the people of the Dominion are  intensely hostile ��� to any .movement looking toward a merging  with the United States. : The  author continues :  " It was stipulsvted in" the letter accompanying the question, that the  name of the person answering the  question would not be published if  he were unwilling. The writers were  members of the Dominion (national)  parliament���senators or members of  the ����oLia>e ol Commons���prime ministers, lieutena.nl governors of the provinces, editors, barristers, manufacturers, capitalists, farmers, business  men���in short, the leaders of Canadian  thought. Only oue, a man of national  prominence, requested that his name  be not published. The answers form  the fir it authoritative expression of  the position of Canada upon a subject  which has been discussed for more  thau a century. And these opinions  have been e-hoed by every Canadian  ������with whom I have talked upon the  subject in a. recertt tour covering more  than six thousand miles and embracing every prominent city ii Canada  and many smaller towns.

Canada is on the eve of railway  expenditure aud development unprecedented in the "history of the  Dominion and unparalleled just  now in any other country. The  C.P.R., has appropriated four  million dollars Tor improvements  west of Lake Superior. It is rebuilding bridges, straightening  curves, lowering grades and providing better facilities at way  stations and ^.terminals. All this  xs exclusive of millions which will  be expended in double-tracking  tlie road between Fort William  and Winnipeg and the extension  of existing lines and the construction of new branches in the  Avbeat belt. The Canadian  Northern is likewise displaying  great activity and is undoubtedly  destined to become a trans-continental line. From Lake Superior the tracks alreadj- extend  over a thousand miles beyond  Battleford, and Edmonton will be  reached early this spring.

One of the snags encountered during.-the discussion is the  claim set up by the Territories to  the ownership of crown lands.  The Dominion representatives, so  far as can be gathered, .object  to  CURLING.  The Greenwood curlers returned  Tuesday from the Nelson bonspiel and  report having- been hospitably entertained.

Mr.  McPhee" inspected   the  Mother Lode  mine -with   a   view   to  studying the  method of quarrying ore ia  the glory  holes,    fie will also   visit the Granby  miiieo. .

The    chalcopyrite  ore  averages from $1.0 to $12 per ion but an  enriched zone in the centre of the deposit will  easily exceed   $40 per ton.  AU the McKinley   needs   is ,railway  transportation .in order to become one  ofthe great mines of B.C. if not of the  w��'rld.   .    The holiday-midwinter   number   of  the'Phoenix ; Pioneer   lia.s received a  flattering reception front, the press and  public.     It comprises 34   pages   with  colored   covers.     The   issue   is   very  artistically  and profusely illustrated,  the views  embracing typical   mining  schenes,  and portraits of leading min  trig men and prominent pioneers.  One  oi two of the pictures notably those of  the glory holes at the Knob Hill and  Mother Lode, are   well calculated   to  impress eastern people with the magnitude of the operations  now being so  successfully carried on throughout the  Boundary  district.     The description-.  of the .various camps and properties is  very complete, the statistical information  being up-to-date  and   especially  invaluable   to   prospect!re   investors.  The  transition   of   Phoenix   from   a  howling wilderness to its unique position as ot��e   of   the   greatest   mining  camps on the contihenl is > graphically  illustrated.     Editor   Willcox has*surpassed all previous  efforts  and is entitled to commendation   for his public  spirited enterprise.  the two provinces now proposed  to be created. They say that the  retention of these lands by the  Dominion is necessary in connection with the carrying out of the  large and comprehensive immigration policy now in operation,  involving as,,.it does the annual  expenditure of something like  half a million dollars. Manitoba  did:not. get* the-crown lands when  she entered confederation, and  official opinion seems to be  against the recognition of the  Territorial claim. Of course if  the lands are retained by the Do  minion fair compensation in the  shape of a cash subsidy would be  granted by Ihe Dominion  surrendering   the   crown lands in).Reeves, A.

BOUNDARY    OREE K   TIMES.  Rich Strathmore is Now on  a,Self-Sustaining Basis.  ANGLO-INDIAN   VISITOR.  (Mi be*mm  Outline of C. Scott Galloway's De-  '-'**���* v    "   velopment Plans.  The Stmlhmore now ranks with tbe  richest high jjrade propositions in the  camp. Within the short period of four  months it has rapidly come totlie front  and is not only on a self sustaining  b&sis but with the impending- increase  in the working* force will after this  month be in a position to make shipments -with the regularity of the oldest  producers. The credit for this satisfactory achievement belong-.s to C.  Scott Galloway, the general manager  and ���ofig-inal owner of the property.  Before th-: end of the month the  Strathniore will have shipped a carload of ore to the Trail smielter  Prior to October when operations  were resumed the propert}* had been  extensively developed^ The work done  comprised a 65-foot shaft sunk on the  vein, drifts from the40-foot level,north  aiad south, 50 and 30 feet long-, respectively, and a 220-foot crosscut tunnel  farther down the mountain, and which  when extended farther to tap the vein  trill-g-i-re a depth of 150 feet. Slopes  had also been made north and south on  either ��ide of the shaft, the ore extrct-  ed and shipped having averaged SV'8  per ton. Mr. Galloway also secured  four and tnie half tons of much richer  ore from an open cut about 145 feet  south of the shaft.  When operations were resumed about  the -''middle of October last attention  was directed solely to the south drift  on the 40 foot level. The drift at thai"  time had a length of only 30 feet. It  lias since been extended on the vein  an additional 75 feet. A few weeks  aj-jo a stope was started in the''working1  at a point about 65 feet from the shaft?  owing'to the marked improvement in  the values. The stope and drift are  being extended south simultaneously,  enabling* four men to extract about  half a tou of ore daily. The lead at ilie  point where the stope was started pre-,  sents a remarkably uniform appearance? It has an average'width of eight  inches of solid ore, between walls, a  "���.noteworthy feature being the--absence  of: barren jjangue. This ore shows  consider*-ble free gold but the values,  howe-rer, are principally in silver.

The carload  shipment which is to bo made before  the end of next week, will, it is antici  pated, average over S100 per ton. A  portion of the shipment will comprise  ore taken from the drift prior to encountering* the richer shute. It isesli  mattd that the Strathmore is now  earning S35 net profit per dav. As  American capital recently acquired a  large interest in the proposition, it is  the intention of Mr. Galloway to increase the force immediately in order  to place the propcrtj* on a dividend-  paying basis as quickly as possible.  This, it is realized, cannot be accomplished * without Uie performance of  considerable work in "making ground'"  by running additional drifts and starting- new stopes. Development aud ore  ��xtraction will thus be carried on at  tiie same time. Tlie crosscut timiK-1  will alao be extended to tap tiie vein,  affording a depth of 150 feet. This  accomplished the Strathmore will be  opened up almost as extensively as  some of the oldest mines in the camp,  and be in a position to ship severs!  carloads monthly. A whip was recently installed to facilitate the hoisting of (/re and waste.  Citizens will welcome the advent of  tiie Strathmore to the regular shipping  list, confident that it will ere long lie  paying- very handsome dividends. Tiie  mine is owned by a joint stock company capitalized at 5150,000. It is sep  arate;! from the Providence mine, the  famous high grade producer, by only  one claim,.'the Fremont.  Cap:  Barnarcliston is After Pointers  On Railway Construction.  Captain TS,, Bamardistoti, former!v  of Suffolk, Eng., and a.member uf t'n<-  Royal Engineers employed in the railway service in India, was a '��� n-etiii  visitor at the Imperial. He has b*.*cn  in India for the past twelve years and  i.s now taking a two years' furlough  and will spend the most of his jei.sure  time among his people.in "Suffolk.  At present he is looking over the railway system of this section so as to  gather audi information as they may  give him as to construction in mountainous districts. Since he arrived  from India he traveled over tlie Southern Pacific's route from San Francisco  to Portland. From Portland he went  to Vancover over the Northern Pacific  and Great Northern, and tl.ence he  went east as far as Calgary and back  to Rossland via the Crow's Nest Hue,  From Spokane he will go over the  Great Northern as far as Seattle and  study the railway building actoss tlie  Cascade mountains. From Seattle he  will inspect the Northern Pacific as far  east as Spokane. From Spokane he  will go through the great gorge of the  Columbia'' river via the O. R. & N.  company's line.  In speaking about railway conditions  in India Captain Barnardistou stated  that Lord Curzon some time since sent  to England for an expert, and a Mr.  Robertson came out and after an exhaustive examination of railway conditions reported recommending numerous changes.' All of the railways of  India, he says, are under government  control, although some have been leased to companies. There are a .number,  of lines, some of which are important  from a strategical standpoint, which  the government operates at a loss.  Millions of acres of desert land in India are being placed under irrigation  The soil is phenomenally rich ahu  when irrigated produces enormous  crops. The vegetation, on the irrigated land of India, could not have tie en.  mote prolific, Captain .-Barnardistou  say, iii the Garden of Eden.  The best laborers that can be pro.-  ctired in India are the Afgnans. They  are a fine stalwart people raised in the  mountains. Entire villages come to  India in the winter time and are'used  to build irrigating* canals and railway**.  iWhen the weather begins to get warm,  however, they return, to Afghanistan  for the purpose of planting and raising  their crops. They will not remain in  India during the summer. The native.-,  of India are very poor workers, ana  one average Anglo-Saxon worker will  do about as much-work as. four ot  them.

The silver-lead mines of British Columbia have paid dividends amounting*  to $3,500,000 since 1892.  The Spokane-Boundary Mining- Co.,  a foreign corporation, has registered  to do business in Canada.

It is, said that the development of the  Ratlier.-claim, near Spencer's ranch,  wiir*"i).e!undertaken this spring*.  The January shipment of SO tons of  Elkhorn ore netted $147 per ton, as  iollows: silver, $128; gold, $19.  It is not expected that the Great  Northern will be hauling- Granby ore  from'Phoenix before March 1st;  t, -���  . .The1 3kylark mine shipped a   carload  of' second "class" ore   to   the   Granby  smelter ,th's week. ��� A new  bunkhouse  is being erected.  * R.

Automatic   feeding devices  for   the  six   furnaces of the   Granbv  smelter  �� -  were-'built by the Union Iron Works,  Spokane, and were shipped to Grand  Porks-on-Wednesday. They will dispense with the labor ef 80 men, effecting a'saving in wages of over $80,000  annually.   V  V :.���.'���  The Silver-Lead Miners' Association  has decided to .send John lv. Retallack  to Ottawa, as a delegate from the association to interview the Dominion government on the zinc question and to  request * that ah investigation be held  and a report made by an expert selected and paid by the government.  For some months Boyle Bros., the  Spokane diamond drilling" concern,  have been doing a large amount of  work of this character at the Granby  mines, and latterly they have beer, putting* down holes on the Monarch group,  testing the ore body, which1 there is as  yet no reason to doubt, goes as deep  as on any of the claims in that camp.  H. V. Fuller this week received the  returns of the recent shipment of 42  tons of Bay ore to the Trail smelter.  The pre averaged $119 gold and 33  cents silver per ton. This is a good  showing considering that the second  grade ore'in the shipment hadnotbeen  carefully sorted or coubed. Development work at the Bay mine is still in  progress. Rumor says Phoenix parties  are negotiating for the acquisition of  the property on a working bond.  .At the Bay claim drifts on'the ore  have been starred north and south.  The working force, divided into two  shifts/.isto be increaed to fifteen men  this week. H. V? Fuller states that it  is the intention to ship five or six carloads of ore before spring, when  trouble caused by surface water on the  steep ihillside is expected. Later tbe  shaft will be sunk to the 100 foot level.  It is understood  that a numoer of the  original promoters of tin* Skylark deal  are negotiating for'the purchase of the  Bay'. ''.  At the annual general meeting of  shareholders in the British Columbia  Record, Ltd., held at the company's  office, Victoria, on Wednesday morning, 1st' inst., Messrs. H. Mortimer  Lamb, Thos. R. Cusack and E. Jacobs  were elected directors for t'.ie ensuing  year. Mr. Jacobs, who early in January succeeded. Mr. Lamb as editor; was  appointed managing director in place  of Mr. Lamb, who has retired from  active work in connection with the  Mining Record, though still retaining  the position of chairman of directors.  It is Mr. Jacobs' intention to change  the date of publication of tlie Mining  Record from the 1st of each month to  about the 12th.  The acquisition last week of the  Monarch group of claims in Phoenix  by the Granby. Consolidated, for $160,-  900, adds what has long been known as  oue of-the best groups in Phoenix to the  holdings'.of Boundary's largest and  most important mining concern. Three  years ago the Monarch, Tamarack and  Tamarack fraction were examined by  F. W. Thomas, M.E., for the British  Columbia Copper Co., at which time  the Erl Syndicate, Ltd., a wealthy  London corporation, asked $130,000 for  the group. Negotiations fell through,  however, and the; transfer -.was not  made. The Erl syndicate originally  bought the group for $12,000.  At a meeting of the directors of the  Gold Bug-Mining Co., held Tuesday  evening, a contract for driving a 300-  foot tunnel on the company's property  was awarded to Martin McHale of  Phoenix. The number of tenders submitted exceeded eighteen, J. H. Peet,  of Spokane, president, occupied the  chair and those present included H.V.  Fuller, W. Macy, Chas Kinney and  Duncan Mcintosh. It is the intention  of the board to offer > 40,000 shares of  the capital stock to the public at 20  cents per share. The group comprises  the Gold Bug and Gold Bug fraction,  on the west side of Boundary creek  and a short distance from the Elkhorn  mine. Mr. McHale will start to drive  the tunnel as soon as he can install a  small compressor plant. ��� The proposed  tunnel will tap three leads at depth.  According to the terms of the contract  at least four men must be employed.  The Rossland board of trade h*is  adopted a strong resolution complaining that .:0,0C0 .teres of coal land suleoi-  evi by Canada in East Kootenay, were  badly selected and that certain ofiiciuls  controlling, the selection had, since  they made the sclecliun, entered the  service of coal and transportation companies benefited by the bad selection,  and that a!'suitable supply of coal was  not being furnished at a   price not^ex-  dominion statute. Fraud is charged  in the manner of granting lands to the  Crow's Nest Pass railroad. It is charged also that the C.P.R. is shifting the  boundaries of its land grant two miles  so as to deprive prospectors of th^ir  coal locations. The dominion government is asked to investigate and punish all parties guilty uf fraud and the  provincial government is asked to set  aside land grants made: lo,the corporations in defiance of law and to protect  the rights of locators.  H. H. Shallejiberger? of this city.has  organized the Alliance Gold and Copper Mining Co , at Minneapolis, for  the purpose of developing and operating the Moreen claim in Deadwood  camp. The company,* which is incorporated under the laws of Arizona, has  a capital stock of 31,500,000 in nonassessable shares of " the par value of  $1 each. The head office is at Minneapolis and the home office is located at  Prescott, Arizona. The board of  directors is as follows: Chas. E Wen-  zel, H. H. Shallenbergei1, Greenwood;  Dr. T. Wrigglesworth, Eau Claire,  Wis.; K. S. Colbiomsen, Belgade,  Minn.; I. M. Parsons, Minneapolis.  Mr. Wenzel is president, the general  manager being Mr. Shallenberger.  According to the prospectus,S3000 have  been expended in development work,  in.a series Of open cuts and shafts,  along the ledge for 1000 feet and 60  feet in width, with no appearance of  an opposite wall. The report of A. E.  Ashcroft, C.E-, contains the following  paragraph: "All the indications from  the work done point strongly to the  existence of a body of  copper-gold ore  s:milar to that being worked at the  Mother Lode. A piece of ore taken  from the uorthermost shaft en the  Moreen wheu compared with a piece of  Mother Lode ore, taken from the cars,  proved them to be identically the same  ores. From its position, as regards the  surrounding mines, its favorable transport facilities, and its proximity to a  smelter already successfully and  clu-aply trt-cxtiiig rhe same class of ore,  it may be s^en that the Moreen is a  property well worth developing.  Official statements of the metal produced by the GraubY Consolidated  company in 190+ are at hand, and they  indicate that Canada's greatest smelter  yielded $2,781,637? The values are  estimated, although the production of  copper in pounds, and of gold and silver in ounces, is official. "Nearly the  entire output of the smelter came from  the ore of the Granby mines," said Jay  P. Graves, general manager. "No  outside matte was converted and the  volume of custom ore which was  handled was small in 1904." The  Granby company's metal output was:  Copper, 13,431,226 lbs.,at 12,8c..$1,719,-  196; gold, 47,068 ozs. at $20, $959,360;  Silver, 180,844 ozs. at 57c, $103,081.  Afraid of Strong Medicines.
