Try it and be convinced.  Womens? Goods.  Men's Goods.  Like a bolt from the blue came the  announcement on Sunday morning-  last of the resignation of Hon. R. F.  Green, chief commissioner of lands  and works in the Conservative-Socialist government of British Columbia.  It w*?.s well known that this hybrid  administration was in difficulty. Ever  since \Attorney General \vilson resigned, about the 1st of Match last, it  has been one cabinet minister short,  and the nominal premier, McBride,was  afraid to open a single constituency in  the province to fill up his cabinet.  Hawthornthwaite, the irresponsible  Socialist leader, found so much difficulty during his summer tour of the  province, in explairing his alliance  with McBride, that he told the latter  on his return he could no longer depend on his support Having these  things in view, it is said the cabinet  wss divided as to the advisability of  having another session or dissolving  the house. Messrs.-Green and Tatlow  wished another session, evidently believing that Hawthomthwaite's threats  \vere not to be taken seriously, as he  was hopelessly committed to the government's course and policy during the  last three years, and notwithstanding  his lack of principle and consistency,  would again support the government  at critical times. A not inconsiderable  element of the Conservative party has  b?en clamoring for Mr. Green's dismissal for some time, but the premier  had so ardently defended allthe shady  deals and, gross mismanagement of the  department of lands and works during  VMr. Green's tenure^ of 'office, that it  was generally believed the late chief  commissioner was secure. However,  the unexpected happened, and Mr.  Green is now down and out.  Immediately following the announcement of Mr. Green's resignation came  the announcement of the dissolution  of the legislature, nomination and  election. Nomination is fixed for the  19th of January, and the elections for  the 2nd of February. The premier  realizes that his easy is a desperate one  and he evidently hopes, by throwing  .overboard^Mr^Greeji^he^can^steeE.his,  battered and discredited ship to the  haven of the Treasury Benches again.  ��� But Mr. McBride cannot escape responsibility for the actions of his late  minister by dismissing him at the last  moment. A death-bed repentance will  not satisfy the electors of British Columbia.  It was through the general incompetence of the government and the particular bungling of Mr. Green that the  Coal and Oil licenses granted in South-  cast Kootenay were utterly valueless,  although the government collected  more ��120,000 therefor. Mr. McBride  was well aware of this state of affairs;  as it was lucidly and vigorously presented by the Liberal opposition in the  house.. It was decided by the courts  that the government had no authority  to issue the license it purported to  issue. As a result no title could be  obtained, no capital interested, and  consequently no development to any  extent even attempted.  Then   the   dtaling   with    Kitamaat  lands  will  require -dome  explanation.  Certain      individuals���favorites,      of  course���were allowed   to acquire lands  on  Kitamaat    Harbor,    which    were  under reserve, and  as to  which these  same favorites had not  complied with  I the provisions of tbe  land  act  at  all,  "Mr. McBride was aware of the facts in  | this case,  because  they were   brought  ! out under oath and Mr.  McBride him-  ^self admitted that some of the crown  grants of Kitamaat lands obtained in  this questionable way should be cancelled. But no one has heard of any  cancellation, and no one who knew Mr.  McBride or Mr. Green, expected any.  The unsavory Kaien Island deal,  which was put through in defiance of  all law, and guarded and hedged with  secrecy to enable Jimmy Anderson and  others of Mr. Green's particular friends  to secure coal lands and money and  favors, while very poor provision was  made for protecting the interests of  British Columbia, was well known to  Mr. McBride. He cannot now evade  responsibility by making a scapegoat  of Mr. Green.  But Mr. Green is not the only member of his cabinet with an unsavory  record. Mr. McBride's own record will  not bear examination any better than  Mr. Green's. When he took office he  announced his intention of introducing  the Party Line system of government.  Yet we find during his very first sea-  sion, he formed an alliance with an  unscrupulous demagogue of a very low  type, whose reputed principles were  the very antithesis of the principles of  Conservatism, wh'ch Mr. McBride was  supposed to represent. He sacrificed,  or, at least, compromised his Conservative principles for the sake of holding  ofiice.  The Conservative party had a..plat,  form on which it appealed to, the electorate, prior to the elections of 1903.  One plank was the reservation of coal  areas inithe province.  In spite of the object lessons which  we have had as to the great danger of  our industries being tied up, and of the  people suffering for lack of fuel through  trouble between employers and employees, uo coal areas have been reserved. Nn the contrary, hundieds of.  thousands of acres of coal lands have  been alienated to speculators. The  platform advocated a liberal expenditure on roads and trails in order to exploit properly the resources of the provinces. Yet the Public Works were  starved under the.Conservative-Socialist government as never before. The  same platform advocated the repeal_of__  the two per cent tax on minerals. Both  the Premier and the F:'nance Minister  declared it was an infamous tax and  should be removed. It remained as  before. But why go further ? Nearly  every plank has been broken and Mr.  McBride a.�� leader is deserving of  greater censure than any other person  for this state of affairs a6 is responsible for, and should compel his party  to observe its ant-election promises to  at least a reasonable degree.  The treatment of the Midway and  Vernon by McBride and Finance  Minister Tatlo\v will be dealt with  later.

It is reported that the C. P. R.
has withdrawn from the market
its lands on the West Fork, We
have not been able to verify this,
but have reason to believe it is
true. If this be so it mav mean
that the giant corporation of
Canada sees a possibility of a
higher market for its lands, due
to the building of the Midway &
Vernon. .We can bear such a
possibility with equanimity, aud
if the Midway & Vernon shall be
able to triumph over all its enemies, the most powerful of them
can mark up its lauds all thev

To the Editor of the Boundary Creole Times:
I should like, if possible, to
correct a wrong impression which
may have been created by your
recent publication of Inspector's
school report for 1905. together
with your conclusions drawn
therefrom. To begin with, both
have failed to see the real cause of
low percentage of attendance at
the public school. Greenwood, it
must be remembered, is a mining
town, and has, in cousequence, a
large floating population—people
with no abiding city, driven
hither and thither b}*- the "Wanderlust." Families settle in town,
and. the children attend for a
month or so. Then the spirit of
unrest takes possession of them,
and away they go to some other
place. To show how these transient pupils lower the percentage,
let me give a few statistics from
the school register for the fall
term. ' In Division I 35 pupils
were enrolled, the. percentage of
attendance being 81. Of these 8
were either arrivals or removals,
who attended only 31 on an average out of 82. Had it not been
for these the percentage of attendance would have been 94. In
Division II4he attendance of the
children of the permanent residents averaged 90 per cent, but
17 of the' transient variety, attending on an average 22 days
each, reduced it to 72. Even 81
and 72 per cent are considerably
above 52. From the above all
will agree that the parents of
Greenwood are not indifferent on
the all important subject of the
education of their children,   and
that the mild philippic of the Inspector does not apply to them.

Try This for Your Cough.
To relieve a cough.or break up a cold
in twenty-four hours, the following
simple formula, the ingredients of
which can be obtained of any good
prescription druggist at small; cost, is
all that will be required: Virgin Oil
of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; Glycer-
int:, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspcon-
ful doses every four hours. Thedesiied
results cau not be obtained unless the
ingredients are pbre. It is therefore
better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin Oil ot 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 cas* which protects
the Oil irotn exposure to light. Around

t-.-.Ttso.r.T.*^ -*:-,.- n  This distressing and unfortunately very common malady  easily takes rank among the Very "meanest" of the diseases  to which people living in this climate are liable.  La Grippe is no resp* tor of persons; it attacks the  young and the old, the rich and the poor with the utmost  impartiality.  Except in the cases v here Pneumonia develops, La  Grippe is seldom directly i.atal; the real danger lies in the  after effects. Even when the patient has fairly well recovered from an attack (and it is very hard to tell just when he  has fully recovered) the muscles are relaxed, the nerves  unstrung, the heart and lungs weak, the throat and bronchial  tubes irritable and tender and the whole system depressed,  run-down and in no condition to resist the attack of any  other disease to which it may be exposed.  This condition is fraught with danger and demands instant  and intelligent attention, the system must be built up and  restored to a normal and healthy condition���advice easy to  give, often very hard to follow.  The appetite is liable to be poor and the digestion impaired so that it is almost impossible to consume and digest  , sufficient ordinary food to do the work quickly and -effectively. What is required is a concentrated food, palatable,  easy to digest and containing the elements necessary to  repair' the waste which La Grippe has committed.  Just such a food is found in  PAY ORE COLUMN  a scientifically prepared emulsion, of Cod Liver Oil, Iron  and Phosphorus, palatable, digestible and effective.  FERROL contains just what the run down system needs  ���and all it requires. Cod Liver Oil to restore the lost flesh  and make what is left firm and healthy, Iron to enrich the  impoverished blood and restore elasticity and firmness to  the relaxed muscles, Phosphorus to tone the nerve and  brain as nothing else will.  Two or three bottles of FERROL, .taken after the acute  stage of La Grippe has passed, will do more to repair  damages'"than can possibly be accomplished in any other  way..   Try it and see.  WHITE BROS, RED CROSS PHARMACY,  Druggists and Optician Greenwood, B. C.  The smelter of the Dominion  Copper company has recently established a new record of 5.328  tous of ore iu oue week. Supt.  Thomas states that the new giant  Giroux hot blast furnace is partly  set up, and with a couple of cars  more of machinery, soon expected  to arrive, it will be completed  some time in December; or at  least by the first of the new year  the new furnace will be in commission, giving the works, with  three furnaces, a total capacitj* of {  from 1,200 to .1,400 tons of ore ][  per day, or between 40,000 and Mi  50,000 tous monthly.( At the H  company's several mines work  continues uninterruptedly, and  Manager Drummond expects to  have no trouble whatever in supplying- the increased tonnage required whenever the smelter is  prepared to receive it.  The Dynamo looks particularly  good. For the present work has  been suspended on the tunnel and  surface work is being carried on.  The ledge has been stripped for  a long distance, said to be 300  feet.  A   well   selected   stock   of  winter suitings just arrived.

THEY COME HIGH  Wl  tQSStr  More than twice as much money is  now being sent out of the United States  for the purchase of luxuries than was  the case ten years ago.  Including cigars, cigarettes and tobacco, the importation* of luxuries  during the fiscal year 1906 amounted to  ���5125,000,000; ten year*, ago the grand  total ��wm $51,000,000. Quite an increase, even for generous, luxury-  loviujf Uncle Sam!  Most remarkable was the upward  ���jump of the importations of diamonds  and other precious stones���in 1896 aggregating $7,944,032, and in 1906, $35,-  000,000. Cotton laces, embroideries  and edgings rose steadily from $10,-  873.954 to $42,120,915; while the imports  of silk laces and ribbons nearly  doubled.  Other than tobacco, the bulk of the  iuxuri-is comes from Europe, which  joyously recognize* the value of America's patronage.  No Opium in Chaniberlaio's Cougfh  Remedy.

May 1907' be a  bright, happy, prosperous' year  to all our readers, and more, to  all the residents of the town and  district is our fervent wish. The  old year lies a-dying. It has  brought its cares and responsibilities, its griefs and joys, to all  of us. The opportunity to have  made more of it than we haye,  has passed away. But just ahead  a New Year dawns, its opportunities all before us, before us  individuals, as fellow citizens.  What the year shall be to one  rests largely with himself. What  it shall be to the community rests,  too, with us.  The New .Year is uo better  than any other in which to put  into action resolutions of good  things, although it is often the  starting point of virtuous spasms.  Each day made a day of industry  and patience and noble effort  makes the year oue of such. That  only is correct living which measures not the year, but the day,  the hour, the present, and the  present is, after all, the only  vantage ground we have.  For us, as a community, the  year 1907 seems to contain much  of promise. The industrial conditions were never before on so  happy a basis for Greenwood.  Fputidrtions solid and secure are  laid. Mining is no longer an experiment in the Boundary. It  has cost millions of money to  prove our resources locally, but  they have stood the analysis to  which they have been submitted  by cold-nosed science and return-  seeking capital. Henceforth let  us not say, "If mining shall  pay," "if the town grows," "if"  and "if" and "if," but rather let  us plan and work on the assurance that mining does  that the town has  growing and must grow  The wealth of silver and gold  and copp^r^ll^abbutlasris-being  made to minister to our welfare.  Only a small part ��of it has yet  been touched. The stream of  prosperity that flows from the  hills about will widen, deepen  yearly, but our individual attitude  to the problem of civic prosperity  and the industry on which it is  based affects the rate of flow.  The most humble individual can  help or hinder.  We can each be a member of  an unorganized "boosters' club,"  helping^ ourselves and others in  ways little suspected, or if we  prefer, we can each be a wet  blanket thrown on the fires of  hope, and courage to arrest, and  it may be extinguished. Let us  begin the New Year right by  working to make our community  the brightest, happiest and most  prosperous in the land, for by  that kind of effort well-sustained  it can only thus become such.  Will you, kind reader, join the  Greenwood Booster Club for 1907?  pay, and  grown,   is  EDITORIAL NOTES  The teacher whose business to  watch for and criticise mistakes  and defects needs to carefully  watch himself lest he degenerate  into a common scold. It is even  so with the critic of a party in  parliament. Observation of such  suggests to us that already some  of them have reached the level  of the chronic scold.  And now with the mining industry of the Boundary fairly  and firmly on its: feet, the 1907  objective is the two million ton  mark.  President Roosevelt Recommends a  Change in the Land Laws.  In a message sent to congress recently, President Roosevelt takes an  advanced stand on the matter of public  lands.    He says:     '  "The developments of the past year  emphasized with increasing force the  need of vigorous and immediate action  to recast the public land laws and  adopt them lo the actual situation.  The timber and stone act has demon  strated conclusively that its effect is lo  turn over the public-- timber lands to  great corporations. It lias done enormous harm, it is no longer needed, and it  should be repealed.  "The desert land act results so frequently in fraud and comparatively  seldom in making homes on the lands  that it demands radical amendment.  That provision which permits assignment before patent should be repealed  and the entrymen should be required  to live for not less than two years at  home on the laud before patent issues.  Otherwise the desert land law will continue to assist speculators and other  large holders to get control of land and  water on the public domain by indefensible means.  "The commutation clause of the  homestead act serves, in a majority of  cases, to defeat tho purpose of the  homestead act itself which is to facilitate settlement and create homes. In  theory the commutation clause should  assist the honest settler, and doubtless  in some cases it does so. Far more  often it supplies the means by which  speculators and loan add mortgage  companies secure possession of the  land. Actual���not constructive���living  at home on the land for three years  should be required before commutation,  unless it should appear wiser to repeal  the commutation clause altogether.  "These matters, are more fully discussed in the report of tlie land commission, to which I again call your attention. I am gravely concerned at  the extremely-unsatisfactory condition  of the present public land laws and at  the prevalence of fraud under their  present, provision? For much of this  fraud the present laws are chiefly 're--  sponsible? There ' is biit one way by  which the fraudlent acquisition of these  lands can be definitely stopped, and  therefore I have directed the' secretary  of the interior to allow no' patents to  be issued to public lands under any law  until an examination of the g*rouiid  shows actual compliance with that law.  For this purpose an increase of special  agents in the land office is urgently  required ank unless given, bonafine  would-be settles would be put to grave  inconvenience or else the fraud will in  large part go on.  COAL LAND   PUTS , PREMIUM ON  FRAUD.  "Further, the secretary of the interior  should be enabled to employ enough  mining experts to examine the validity  of al mineral land claims and to undertake the supervision of the use of  the mineral fuels still belonging to the  United States.  ''Tl*i-F~*preir<^  individual entry to 160 acres puts a  premium on fraud by making it impossible to develop certain coal fields and  yet comply with the law. It is a scandal to maintain laws which sound well,  but which make fraud the key without  which great natural resources must  remain closed.  "The law should give individuals and  corporations under proper government  regulation and control (the details of  which I shall not at present discuss),_  the right to work bodies of coal land  large enough for profitable development.  "My own belief is that there should  be provision for leasing coal, oil and  gas rights under proper restrictions  "If the additial force of special  agents and mining experts I recommend is provided and well used the result will be not only to stop land frauds  but prevent delay.-*, in patenting olaims  and conserve the indispensable, fuel  resources of the nation.  "Nany of the existing laws affecting  rights of way and privileges on public  lands and reservations ar-: illogical and  unfair. Some work injustice by granting value rights in perpetuity without  return. Others tend to protect the  grantee in hia possion of permanent  impravement made at large expense.  In fairness to the government, to the  holders of rights and privileges on the  public lands and to the people whom  the latter serve, I urge the revision and  enactment of these laws in one comprehensive act providing that the regulations and the charge now in force  in many cases may be extended to all,  to the end that unregulated or monopolistic control of great natural resources  may not be acquired or misused for  private ends."

On Wednesday morning the  mercury suddenly dropped to the  zero point, and has been hovering  around there ever since.  Andrew H anson, a former  Greenwoodite, but now a prosperous rancher of the Myers Creek  valley, was shaking hands with  old friends in the city last Saturday.  Unlike many of the coast cities,  Greenwood did not suffer from a  turkey famine during the holiday  season, the E. Burns Co. having  received at the eleventh hour a  sufficient quantity to satisfy all  demands.  .  The first hockey match of the  season was played last night between Phoenix ^/M Greenwood  teams. The game was well contested throughput, the score  standing at call of- time 3 to 2, in  favor of Greenwood.  A musical entertainment under  the auspices of Greenwood Con-  cer-t-band^was^given^by^the^Pol-^  matier Sisters of Troy,; N. Y.,  at the Auditorium Thursday  night. The attendance was very  small. Those present enjoyed a  rare musical treat.  The B. C. Telephone Co. intend moving into their new office,  back of P. W. George's store, on  Sunday next. Owing to, delay in  arrival of the* new switchboard  from Chicago, the new metallic  system will not be fully completed before the end of January.  Mrs. W. H.

EVERYTHING IS NEW  g-aged remodeling it  into an up-  to-date livery stable.  Miss McQueen, who has been  in charge of the C. P. R. telegraph office in this city for almost  four years, left Wednesday afternoon for Kenora, Ont., where she  will visit her sister for a couple  of months. Her many friends in  Greenwood wish her a very pleasant holiday, and look forward  with pleasure to welcoming her  once more into their midst.  Many of our young people who  have been pursuing their studies  at different institutions of learning, are spending the holiday  season at the family fireside.  Among those who have returned  are Misses McCreath, McMynn  aud Shaw, of the Young Ladies'  College, Yale; Mr. Floyd Hunter,  of Moscow University, aud Mr.  Harry Simmons, of the Presbyterian College, Calgary.  The two men convicted before  Magistrate McMynn for a defective knowledge of the ethical law  regarding- "Mine and Thine" were  taken over to Nelson Thursday  afternoon by Chief McKenaie and  handed over to the tender care of  Warden Lemon, who will provide  them with free lodging and board  for two months. In return for  this kindness they will probably  be asked to spend some time each  day on the stone heap.  .*-*.,*,���  The Christmas tree and entertainment at the Presbyterian  church on Friday evening, the  21st inst., was most successful,  the church being filled to its fullest capacity. .The church was  suitably decorated with evergreens, and the tree itself being  loaded with presents, presented a  fine appearance. An excellent  program was provided by the  children of the school, and all  present enjoyed themselves very  much.  The Sunday School of the  Methodist church held a very successful entertainment on Christmas night. The church was very  tastefully decorated for the occasion. A unique feature of the  decorations was a log cabin constructed out of paper. With its  rough-looking logs, brick chimney and snow-covered roof it presented a very pretty sight and  wjas_wel^^  the place of a Christmas tree, its  interior and exterior being1 decorated with presents. Mr. Mac-  knight took a flashlight of the  decorations and the children  grouped on a platform. Those  who had the entertainment and  decorations in charge are to be  congratulated on the success  which attended their efforts.  Information has been received  from the east to the effect that  the officials of the Dominion Copper company at a. board meeting  held a few days ago in New York,  have decided to enlarge their  smelter at Boundary Falls by the  addition of three more furnaces.  These will probably be installed  and in operation before tbe end  of 1907. The improvements will  cost $150,000, and will be paid  out of the earnings. When the  furnace now  under construction  Christmas eve was oue of the  red letter variety for the children  at the Mother Lode mine. A  Christmas tree aud entertainment  were given in the company's dining room? Mr. Keffer presided,  and Mr. Holman, being called ou  for af few remarks, welcomed all  preterit, aud extended to them the  hospitality of the company. The  children provided au excellent  program, their singing being especially good. The entertainment over, Santa Claus duly appeared and began distributing the  presents, which were both numerous and valuable. The distribution completed, all present sat  down to a sumptuous Christmas  dinner provided by the company.  All departed feeling it was good  to be there. Christmas day all  tbe children at the mine and  Deadwood were given a sleigh  ride to Greeuwood, aud Avere  kindly entertained at the home of  Mr. aud Mrs. Keffer.  Christmas   day  was   well   observed and thoroughly enjoyed by  all the inhabitants of Greenwood.  Many of the  surroundiug  mines  were  closed down,   and work in  some departments of the  smelter  was suspeuded for the day.    One  noticeable feature to the  man on  the street was the  great  number  of strangers jvithin the gates and  the good  cheer  evidenced  on all  sides.    Ideal  weather  conditions  prevailed.    The day was spent iu  various ways,   many  taking  advantage of the line  weather  and  good   sleig-hing    went    driving.  Large numbers attended the skating rink, where  the ice  was in  excellent   condition.      Some enthusiastic  httrlers  of the  stanes  collected  a  few   kindred   spirits  and repaired to the Curling rink.  In  the  afternoon  the city band,  of   which   we  are justly   proud,  turned out with their new instruments  and eutertaiued the- citizens with many choice selections.  Excellent order prevailed  on the  streets during the day, and Chief  McKenzie's duties were not onerous.    A few individuals,   becoming rather hilarious from, imbibing too1 freely from the  cup' that  cheers,   were given free lodgings  for   awhile.      When   these   had  come to themselves they were allowed to go without being called  to contribute anything'to the city  exchequer.

This fact, no doubt,  largely accounts for the many  beaming countenances.  A meeting of the city council  was held Thursday night. All  members were present, Acting  Mayor Bunting i^^the chair.  Among the items'"' of business  transacted was the granting of  the Greenwood City Waterworks  company a further period of three  months from January 2, 1907, for  the completion of their plant at  Boundary Falls.  pleted, the smelter will then have  six furnaces capable of treating  3,400 tons of ore daily. Electricity has recently supplanted steam  as motive power at the smelter,  and iu the course of a month or  so will also be employed in the  company's mine. This change  will effect a saving of about  $100,000 per year.  r  FINE   ASSORTMENT    OF  FANCYGOODS  Genuine Ebony Toilet Sets  Silver mountings from  $6.00 to $35.00  Military Brushes,  Manicure Sets,  Brush and Gomb Sets,  Jewell Boxes,  Mirrors, Sissors Sets.

"Voig-t returned from  Vancouver on Sunday, after an  absence of several weeks, and he  brings back with him g-ood news  to the people of: Princeton. He  has 'bonded group No. 14, comprising three claims and a fraction, situated on Copper mountain, to the Dominion Copper Co.,  a corporation of sound financial  standing and at present operating  iu the Phoenix, Deadwood, "Wellington, and Summit camps.  James Liudsey made a report on  the group 14' a few mouths ago  and it was upon his recommendation ��� that the deal was made.  Representatives of the Dominion  Copper Go. are expected to arrive  in Prince ton at once when arrang-  ments will be made to start development work immediately and  a force of men will be put to  work.  If this, property turns out as  good as expected, it will mean  more to Princeton than may seem  at first sight. What has been  lacking in the past has been the  lack of money and enterprise to  take hold and show the value of  the copper deposits in this section. Once this is done, any  amount of money will be found  ready and willing to come in and  take a"chance.  Mr. Voigt has stayed with  Gopper mountain for a good  many years, at no small expense,  never wavering in his belief that  she would come to her own, and  it is to be hoped that success has  at last crowned his labors, a.-  MIDWAY NOTES.

Foreman Wilms-  hurst got his men to work Sunday in  order that it might be made available  for heavy traffic as soon as possible  after the last car of lumber arrived���  which, by the way, was lost for over a  week between here and Danville.  However, the bridge is now completed  with the exception of the side rails and  few other odd* and ends that do not  interfere with its regular use, and we  are glad to say, that annoying as the  delay has been, we have at least got a  good bridge. It is perfectly rigid  under the strain of heavy traffic, and is  a credit to those engaged in its construction.  STEVENSON COURTNEY  Last Saturday evening, ��i the home  of Mrs. A. J. Broomfield.

It is a purely chemical  process.  The tin deposits of Mexico are again  attracting notice and some considerable  amount of American capital has been  subscribed to exploit these resources.  The existence of tin in Mexico has  been known since th; days of the early  Spaniard, but thus far all attempts to  exploit the deposits on a commercial  scale haye been unsuccessful, chiefly  for the reason that the rich ore which  was amenable to the crude treatmeut  practiced, was found only in limited  quantity. There has been a continued  s-nall annual production of tin, mostly  gathered from the stream deposits by  natives. Some ten years ago an American company took up some tin land in  Durango, but nothing has come of it,  and until very recently the deposits  have been looked upon as somewhat of  a myth. However, in the light of better modern practice in mining and  metallurgy, some of the recent explorations have given fair promise of  profitable operation. It is hoped that  the present investigations will be continued by men of skill, experience and  sufficient capital to definitely prove the  value of the deposits.

COPPER PROSPECTS  Present high prices, the result of a  greatly increased coi sumption and a  slowly rising production which, by the  way, is less than Had been estimated  earlier in the yea**, indicate that copper  mining dividends will be larger than  heretofore. Many mines that were  opened while the copper boom was on  a few years ago are rapidly reaching*  the dividend-paying" stage," and the  older properties by more economical  ���working are able to squeeze out an extra dividend occasionally. It requires  greater managerial talent to meet*the  exigencies of a low grade copper mine,  notwithstanding the current high  prices, to guarantee an equitable return  on the capital invested. To say that  nearly one half of the market price of  copper today is profit is nonsense, and  as a rule it sound like the twaddle of  an inexperienced person j one, for instance, whose livelihood depends upon  the flotation of mining 'stocks^"bn"glittering" generalities. Some of the better paying of the larger working mines  cannot honesily boast of producing  copper at less than 11 or 12 cents per  pound, a,ncl not afew must pay 13 cents  and more In remote cases, however |  it may be pussiflle to grid an exceptionally well managed mine that can produce copper at 10 cents or a fraction  less per pound, but speaking generally  the cost is nearer 12 cents.

This, coupled  with more expensive supplies, has  made it necessary to raise the charges  for-producing copper. It should also  be remembered that as the output increases and the ore deposit which may  have been worked for years, gradually  becomes exhausted, new explorations  must be made or more hnd purchased,  which, of course, means additional  costs on the copper output. Even so  great a mine as the Calumet & Hecla,  which has already paid dividends of  nearly SIOO.O-jO.OOO, and has sufficient  copper bearing- rock in its old property  to continue the sharing of profits for  some time to come, has found it expedient to increase its land holdings  by new purchases. It is a fact not to  disputed that the life of even a'copper  mine ia limited. At a time like the  present all copper mining operations  are at top speed, the desire being to  reap the harvest of high market prices.  The probability is that production in  1906 will show a. fairly large increase  over 1-90S, when the total of 402.637  Ions (57.4 per cent of the world's production) was about. 11 per cent greater  than 1904. The statistican .of The  Mining World calculotes that the 1906  output will be not far from 446,()00tons.  the high record. Consumption, however, shows a longer stride; last year  it was 268,500 tons, or 20.5 per cent  more than 1904, and in 1906 will probably total about 325,000 tons, the record.  An increasing proportion of the, domestic consumption is being supplied  by imports "from Mexico and Canada.  Exports this year show a marked falling off, but when the extraordinary  demand from China in 1905 is wiped off  the ledger, the total shipments in 1906  look more favorable. In fact, some of  the more important European countries  show' an increased consumption this  year.  Copper prices average about 5 cents  per pound better, than 1905, and in the  11th month of 1906 fluctuated between  22 and 22^ cents per pound for Lake  copper, f, o. b.

In Btitish Columbia  the miner settles the title to a claim  when he. drives his stakes. In Ontario  the lawyers settle a title to, a claim  when they get the patent out of the  government at the Queen's Park, and  even the patent is not always final. In  British Columbia the miner applies for  his certificate of improvement or his  Crown grant. His application is advertised. If objection is raised the  courts at once determine the validity of  every assault upon the claim-holder's  title.

What our  brothers in Britain have been slow to  realize,.our cousins south of the line  have been swift to comprehend?  They see what the country possesses,  they realize w;hat itB future must be.  And so they came by the car load, by  the train load, and they hare introduced into the northwest numbers, industry, intelligence, capital. They  assimilate with the Canadian, they like  his laws, they like his privileges, they  like his opportunities. The language  is the same, the flags are colored alike,  traditions are one, habits are similar,  laws are even better.  Then.why not come? Why not get  a foothold here while opportunity  becons? .  They have sent their spies into tbe  country and they have returned to them  bearing grapes.  Last summer a party of newspaper  men toured the country and the following extracts from their home papers on  their return show what they thought of  Canada.  For 27 days these dozen of trained  newspaper men observed, and already  a couple hundred columns of corre  spondence has appeared, and to read it  makes the Canadian proud of his heritage, even as it makes the man down  in the states anxious to share it.

And 'tis wheat that is going to be responsible for the main part of CfJiiad;i'.��  growth. Wheat, the staff of life. th*  advance atrent of prosperity. Th*-  550.000 .-quare miles of v.-heat country  of Western Canada is *.:���<.��� min if to the  front as the backbone and mainstay of  the Dominion. About 200,000,000 acres  in this region are fit for cultivation md  nearly all of it will produce the best  wheat in the world. If one-quarter of  these acres are eventually sown to  wheat, there will be bread enough to  cover England's deficiency four times  over and an overflow sufficient lo heap  upthehungiy lands of the continent  of Europe.  Edward G. Lowry, New York Evening Post���We have been up and down  the Canadian West, and, seeing, have  understood how these provinces have  ���tvoraged twenty-three bushels of I  wheat to the acre. It is a fat country,  readily yielding its riches. The-grain  stands as high as a man's shoulder,  with heavy, full heads. Along one  road leading but from Regina it is possible to ride forty miles in a direct line  t.irough unbroken fields of standing  .-.rain. These people have been here  long enougii to give heed to other  things than the tilling of the land.  They have planted garden-sand flowers  and made their homes attractive, with  growing thi ngs.. Americans have come  here in great'numbers. Most of them  have succeeded. Many control an entire section, 640 acres. Practically no  farm in the provinces is less than 160  acres. I drove for an hour with a  Mennonite, a Russian refugee, now a  farmer in Canada. "This government  can't be beat," was his vehement assertion made eagerly and with shining  eyes. For the man .seel<fng cHeap lands  on which to raise wheat there is no  need to go beyond the great Saskatchewan valley, with its comsaratively  mild and short winters, its rich soil  and growing access to market. The  development of Western Canada is one  of the wonders of recent times.  R. H. ivindsay, Kansas City Star���  Respect for the law, whatever their  opinion, may be of its wisdom or jus -  tice, is a striking characteristic of high  and low in Canada. No American who  comes to Canada and mingles freely  with the people can fail to be impressed  with the fact before he has been across  the border three days, .Railroad men,  professional men, working men, all  seem to agree in the sentiment, '"It Is  the law/ It must be obeyed." No man  seems to think himself too rich or too  big to yield cheerful obedience.. ��� This  seems to be as true of relatively new  and unsettled country in the west as  of the older provinces of the east.  There.is. little of the free and easy,  reckless spirit of our own western communities in  the   new   Canadian proy-  FOR  LADIES, MISSES!

Thomas J. Pence, Raleigh News and  Observer���Hundreds of our people are  getting, rich iu Canada. They are  digging dollars out of the ground.  Nowhere in the world are the toilers of  the soil as prosperous as in this country, and Canada is making rich men  out of fanners who have hitherto been  in the most moderate circumstanc2s.  The crops this year are larger than  ever before. The wheat fields in the  three wheat, provinces of Manitoba,  Alberta and Saskatchewan have yield  ed from twenty-one to forty bushels to  the acre. Oats have run from ninety  to one hundred and twenty bushels.  Other cereal crops are large in the same  proportion and the people up there are  happy.  Canada is booming in all particulars,  and people are flocking in bv the  thousands.  It is the poor man's land. It is the  land of opportunity. Men of .small  means can go there and build fortunes.  It ifi the land of promise. Canada  promises to furnish a large per cent of  the food stuff of the world.  Water Cure for Constipation.
