IN RECOGNITION OF  HIS  Efforts  in Railway Fight-Minins,  Smelter,.   Business and  Professional Men Welcome Railway  Competition,  The people of the Boundary know  what they want, and when they get  what they want they know how to appreciate it. There were numerous  evidences of this appreciation at the  complimentary banquet tendered Duncan Ross, M. P., at the Imperial hotel  on Tuesday evening- last. For years  Boundary wanted a railway arid wanted  it badly, and it was only aftera strenuous fight that this want was satisfied.  Then came the question of railway  competition, and the battle for this  essential grequirement in "a low-  grade mining camp was even more  strenuous, because the other railway  was lined updn opposition to the wishes  of thfc people. Among those present  at the banquet on Tuesday night were  many of the pioneers of the Boundary  who were factors in the early development of the district and who participated in the transportation struggles  of which the district had even more  than its full share. They were the  most enthusiastic in their appreciation of the good work done by Mr.  Ross in securing the neeessaryJegis-  lation to ensure the immediate construction of the V., V. & E. as a competitive railway in Southern British  Columbia.  The banquet itself left nothing to  be desired. The committee���C. Scott  Galloway, A. S. Thomas and Chief  Hallett���carried out all the details that  are so necessary for the smooth running of an affair of this kind. The  hoses, Parry & Graham, also entered  into the spirit of the occasion and at  considerable expense enlarged the dining room of the Imperial in order to  accommodate the large number who  were present. The drawing room was  tastefully decorated with flags and  bunting, and choice cut flowers were  found in profusion on the tables. The  dinner itself was well cooked and well  served.-" In_t'ne early part of' the_even-"  ing the Greenwood Citizens' band, in  their natty uniforms, played several  selections in honor of the occasion.  In order that those present, should  not exceed the seating capacity of  the dining room, the committee -found  it necessary to limit the invitations to  Boundary points. Every trade and  calling is interested in the transportation question and representatives of  all the Boundary industries were present. J. E. McAllister and T. R.  Drummond, managers respectively of  the B. C. Copper and the Dominion  Copper companies' smelters, represented that industry; while the mining industry was represented b}- Wm.  G. McMynn, gold commissioner, W. T  Smith. Duncan Mcintosh, Richard  Armstrong of Chicago, Alex. Miller,  Geo. W. Rumberger, mayor of Phoenix, and others. Midway was represented by Mayor Hain, J. R. Ferguson, Jas. H. McNames, Dr. D. Tamb-  lyn, R. G. Gardom, and Henry Lee;  Phoenix by Mayor Rumberger, Dr. (-*.  S. Gordon and William Delahy; Grand  Forks by W. H. Covert and Alex. McQueen; Eholt by G. Arthur Rendetl;  while among those who attended from  the city were C. H. Fair, Kenneth McKenzie, Julius Ehrlich, Dr H. S. Simmons, E. Foyle Smith, H. McCutcheon,  Dr. Mathison, E. W. Bishop, R, G. C.  White, Thos. Walsh, H. R. Madden,  Chas. Dunne. E. J. Carter, A. D. Hallett, J. J. Feeney, W. M. Frith, W. M.  Law, James McCreath, R. A. Nicholson, D. A. Bannerman, Dr. S. S. Oppenheimer, A. S. Thomas, I. H. Hallett, W. T. Hunter, J. F. Royer, Mayor  Geo. R. Naden, and J. R. Brown, M. P.  P., who was chairman and toastmaster.  The menu   card   was  unique.   The  'ist of   good  things  was  found  on a.  large shipping  tag,  ornamented by"a  sh6r*-t piece of hemp, all  being sugges- ;  tive   of  the  new  line  of   railway   in  Southern British Columbia.  The first (oast was the King. No  one who heard the spirited singing of  the national anthem, and the enthusiastic way in which this toast was received, could doubt the loyalty of the  people of the people of the Boundary,  notwithstanding the fact that they are  unanimously in favor of a "foreign"  railway.  The chaitman then read a .'etter from'  Jas.   H.   Kennedy,  chief  engineer 'of  theV. V, & E.,  expressing regret at  not being able to be-present.  "The Dominion  of  Canada"  found .  two eloquent champions in  Dr. Mathi-_  son  and Mr. Armstrong.    The  doctor,  said Canada  required  no  spokesman. '-  She speaks through  her, industries in   ���  the East, the wheatfields or the Nortti-1  wst, the illimitable mineral resources  of British Columbia, and the Boundary."  speaks  through  its  representative in  parliament,  Mr. Ross.    Richard Armstrong is a capital after-dinner speaker.  Some years ago he lived in Torono    .  and was president of the Young Men's  Conservative   Club ' there.     Although  now  a   resident  of  Chicago,   he still  takes a keen interest��in Canadian politics and Canadian affairs.    In respond-  in�� to the toast " Canada," he paid an,  eloquent tribute to the guest of the  ,  evening, with whom  he had been as- *  sociated in   the  Corbin  fight  in  1898.  Although  he had always been a Conservative, were he now a resident and'  voter in  Yale-Cariboo he would cer-  Uinly  work  and  vote for Mr, Ross in  recognition  of the splendid, fight  he  had made for what  this  district needs  most���railway competition.    (Loud applause.)    The   Conservatives,  from a  political   standpoint,  have committed -  the greatest possible "chump" act by  standing   almost   solidly  for  railway-  monopoly in the  West.    Dealing with^  the- subject   matter* of   the toast;  he  eloquently piclured a bright future for  Canada, "ond  pointed out  that Canadians had  taken a  foremost place  in  the adjoining country.   United .States'  greatest railwayman  is J. J.   Hill, a  Canadian;,its  greatest doctor was an  Osier, a Canadian; a Canadian lawyer  was the first to secure a million-dollar,  fee, and- even   Mrs.   Chadwick was  a  Canadian.    (Loud laughter).    He  had-  every   confidence    that   Greenwood's  high grade belt would prove  a winner,  and Ihe and  his associates  were well  satisfied with their investments here.  He closed an eloquent and witty speech  by  again- referring -to  the good work  done by Mr. Ross.o  The toast of -"The Province" found  champions iu W. G. McMynn and D.  A. Bannerman, both of whom expressed  the greatest confidence in its future.  Mr. Ross, in rising to respond to the  toast, " Our Guest," met with a warm  reception. He hastened to express his  appreciation of the splendid tribute to  himself. It was particularly gratifying that the men with whom he had  been associated for over eight- years,  with whom he ohad traveled in good  times and in hard times, should be the  first to express their appreciation of  any service that he might have been  able to do in the interest of his constituency. It was one of the exceptions to the rule that a "prophet is not-  without honor save in his own country." Politicians were human and  liked to j;have nice things said about  them once in a while. He confessed  he was a politician, possibly a practical politician, and now since the sessional indemnity had been increased,  no doubt he would be styled a professional politician.  Mr. Ross then gave some of the particulars of the V., V. & E. fight. There  was more involved than the mere  question of securing the construction  of the V., V. & E. railway. If the  great interior of this province ia to be  opened up it must be through the valleys which run north and south from  the Columbir river and the Fraser, and  this province must be accorded the  same freedom in the development-of a  railway policy as is accorded the eastern provinces. (Loud applause). No  government could live, no political  party could live which allows its railway policy to be dictated by a railway  corporation. He appreciated the good  work the C. P. R. had done in opening  upand developing the   West and was  m  -*l  m  1  - I  Continued on page six.  P'.* ������ BOUNDARY CREEK   TIMES.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.   H.

By some oversight an honest .man was appointed to tlie board in the person  .of Arthur Rainey of Grand Forks  and when he refused to become a  tool of the Grand Porks ring- he  was summarily dismissed by wire  and a man who would do its bidding appointed in his stead. It  is Praser's proud boast that the  board of license commissioners  were appointed to do his bidding  and all its acts conclusively prove  that its members are quite willing to wear the Fraser yoke.  At the first meeting the bleeding process was again renewed  and J. A. Bertois of Cascade was  again the selected victim. He  was denied his license and one  was granted to Thomas, but subsequently the Thomas hotel was  destroyed by lire. Thomas' only  claim to preferment -was that  during the general election of  1903 he. dispensed free whiskey at  Cascade in the interests of  Fraser's candidature.  One . would naturally suppose  th at with th e destruction of the  only licensed house in Cascade  Bertois would have had little  difficulty in securing. a license*;  but the bleedingVprocess was continued, and we are informed that  before Bertois secured his license  the other day he had.to pay a  round, sum to Fraser's political  pet.   ;... :v;'.v'.        .���*���';-. .  .The action of the board at the  recent meeting at Midway was  an equally gross ."violation'of the  law. Two liquor licenses were  granted for hotels not today in  existence. The board could have  no knowledge of-the class of hotel  for which- licenses were being  granted and they could,not possibly have a report of the inspector as is required by law, since  the inspector could not report regarding the condition of a building of which the foundation had  not been laid;- but the licenses  were granted to Lloyd A. 'Mauley  and another, acting for Manley,  for no other reason than th at  Mauley is head of the ring to do  whose bidding the board of license commissioners of Boundary  district lives, moves and has its  being.  Bluntly stated, the acts of the  board of license commissioners  ar e^orrupt^liH^bW^iW'XctFare  characteristically Tory acts and  peculiarly characteristic of the  present   provincial   government.  other words, the company should  pass out of existence. If this  clause held good the situation  was that there had been built in  this proviuce some IIfty miles of  railway without a company in  existence to operate it or extend  it or expropriate lauds for such  extensions. This doubt was removed by recent legislation aud  the company was reinstated as a  company under federal jurisdiction. Legislative authorit}' was  also granted the V., V. & E. to  connect the Victoria terminal  railway and ferry company with  a line from Oliver's at the mouth  of the Fraser river to the Fraser  river bridge at .New Westminster  and also to amalgamate with this  railway the Vancouver, Westminster and Yukon and the New  Westminster and Southern railway, all owned by the Great  Northern interests.  To avoid difficulties of construction, authority was granted  to the company to dip into the  State of Washington at Sidley  mountain. > The right, to cross  the intern?tional boundary liine  is restricted to that portion between the Columbia river and  Similkameen, or* say Marcus and  Oroville, and the' approval of the  government was also necessary to  make the - crossing. This approval was secured by order-in-  council passed on Saturday last.  From Princeton to the coast the  line must, be in Canadian territory. The- :obligatians imposed  on the company under the original  legislation, save as amended as  stated above, are still binding' on  the Compa:ny.:- '   ;  <r*<  Cr*  Cr*  CP"  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  G=*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  C=*  Cr*  �� ��  Capital, all paid up, $14,000,000,  Rest.  .$10,000,000.

AUGUST 4, 1005  A CORRUPT RING.  Last year we drew attention to  the fact that the board of license  commissioners for Boundary district was being used to exploit  the schemes of Geo. A.. Fraser,  M. P. P. for Grand Forks riding,  and his faithful allies among the  Grand Forks ring. The Times  then made a direct charge that  applicants for liquor licenses were  held up and forced to pay large  sums of money before they could  secure what they were entitled to  under the law. We specifically  mentioned the case of. J. A,  Bertois of Cascade. He was  forced to pay a considerable sum  of money in addition to the license  fee in order to secure his license.  The government did not pay  the slightest attention to this  charge. It was not expected that  it would, for it is well, known  that the McBride government  keeps itself in office  by counte-  THE V. V. & E.  The Times has been.,'asked to  state definitely what legislative  powers were secured by the Vancouver, '(Victoria and Eastern  Railway and Navigation Company through the recent legislation passed by the Dominion parliament. Briefly stated, this  company was incorporated in  1897 by the legislature of this  proviuce. It was authorized to  construct a road from Vancouver  via New Westminster through  the Hope mountains to Rossland.  In 18��)8 the Dominion parliament  ostensibly confirmed this legislation and declared the works of  the company for the general advantage of Canada, but the Dominiou parliament in 1898 did not  declare the company to be a corporation within the legislative  authority of the parliament of  Canada. It afterwards developed  that a peculiar clause had been  inserted iu the provincial legislation incorporating the company.  This clause stipulated that unless  work was commenced within a  certain time, and ten per cent, of  the capital expended within three  years the corporate existence of  the   company  should  cease.    In  The Vancouver Province in a  recentissue abuses Senator Templeman because as a party man  he is without fear and without  'reproach. Senator Templeman's  loyalty to party and to his friends-  must be.repulsive to' the Vancouver Province, which has never  been accused-, of loyalty to anything or anybody, save and except  the Canadian Pacific Railway  company. If Senator Templeman is the Bayard of the Liberal  party in British Columbia, the  Vancouver Province, is easily the  Benedict Arnold of British Columbia journalism.  Tub Vancouver Province says it is  not controlled by the Canadian Pacific  Railway company. This confession  places the Province in an even worse  light-than it appeared heretofore to  the* peopleof���British-Golumbia,4f-that  were possible. Its attempted betrayal  of the best interests of British Columbia; Ihe city of Vancouver and the  Iyibenil party in its frantic efforts to  bolster up the lost cause of the Canadian Pacific railway was accounted for  by reason of the fact that it was owned  body, soul and" breeches by that corporation. The Province wantonly destroys even this poor excuse for its  its course, and there is now nothing-  left but to assume that its course was  dictated by innate cussedness. The  poor, poor Province ! It needs saving*  from itself.

The ratio between uranium and radium in minerals is constant.  The occurrence of limestone in its  crystalline state constitutea marble.  American sulphur is competing in  foreign markets with the Sicilian product.  Asbestos is removed from its gangue  by means of special machines called  fiberizing machines.  Compressed air ventilation, while  efficient, i9 enormously expensive as  compared with fan ventilation.  The Hope diamond is the world's  most beautiful blue gem. It is owned  by the Hope family of England and is  priceless.  Glacial drift is usually ipentified by  masses of broken and mixed rock and  soil, with the bedrock only appearing  only in places. (;  The manufacture of steel was responsible in a large degree for the necessity of washing all coal intended  for coke manufacture.  The Bessemer process of making  steel was first introduced into the  United States by the Pennsylvania  Steel company at Shelton, Pa., in 1867.  Mercury is extracted by heating the  ore in a retort or a furnace; the metal  is expelled as a vapor, which is subsequently condensed in cooling chambers and collected.  Underground waters circulate for  the most part through natural channels, such as is offered by any fissure;  but they are also capable of forcing  their way through most solid rocks.  The iron mines of Elba, today producing "large quantities of iron ore,  were worked first by the Etruscans,  and it is probable that mining began  at least 300 years B. C, or over 2,000  years ago.  Nickel-chromium is a new metallic  alloy composed nickel, chromium and  iron, with small percentages of carbon  and silicon. It is a product of the  metallurgical treatment of chrome iron  ore with nickel oreB.  The total output of gold from India  .-amounts to only 3# per cent of the  world's supplyi" This comparatively  insignificant amount nevertheless  places India about seventh in the list  of leading gold producing countries of  the world.  Compressed air for haulage must attain a pressure of 600 to 800 pounds.  Large losses will be sustained if an  attempt is made to use this high pressure for cutting machines by reducing  to 80 pounds through reducing valves.  The chemical composition of asphal-  tum is so complex that elementary  analyses throw little light on the subject. It still remains an open question  whether important groups of deiinite  and characteristic hydrocarbons can  ��� be separated-and^recognized.,^^^^^  The air becomes vitiated as it travels  down the shaft and through the drifts  and cannot be as pure as surface air.  This is one reason why the use of compressed air in ventilating is more desirable than fan ventilation, even  though the latter is less costly.  Black copper is impure metallic cop-  yer carrying from 1 to 5 per cent sulphur besides various metals and  metalloids. It derives its name from  the oxidation of the surface, giving it  a dull black appearance. It is not of  as good grade as blister copper, which  is the highest grade of the unrefined  metal.  A monopoly of the manufacture of  explosives in Nicaragua has just been  granted to the Nicaraguan Finance  and Improvement company.

The gem stone heliotrope is a variety  of quartz of a deep green color, and  spotted red like drops of blood It is  used somewhat in the preparation of  burnishers, but is most valuable as a  gem. The best specimens come from  Tartary. Persia, Siberia and Scotland.  Stilphnr has been known to mankind since the earliest records of history. It is one of the most important  elements that comprise the earth's  crust, and occurs in a free or uncom-  bined state in many countries, forming- the mineral sulphur, more commonly known in commerce as brimstone.  The power losses, in belt-driven machinery were largely responsible for  the introduction of the direct-coupled  motor-driven machinery of toda.y.  Belting is nevertheless still the cheap  est method of transmitting powei in  small amounts for short distances.  Some 200 to 300 years ago the  Spaniards worked deposits of placer  tin about forty miles from Aguasca-  lientes, Mexico. Parties have re-  centl}' uncovered a vein of tin ore  from which the float probably came.  , An ingot of tin weighing SO pounds  has lately been smelted from this vein  and is believed to be the first tin cast  iu Mexico.

Do not use any substitute/but   give   it   the   old-fashioned  castor oil, and see that it is fresh, as  rancid oil nauseates and has a  tendency to gripe.    If this  does  not check  the bowels give Chamberlain's Colic-  Cholera and   Diarrhoea Remedy, and  then a dose of castor oil, and the disease may be checked in  its incipiency  and all danger avoided.   The castor  oil and this remedy should be procured  at once and kept ready for instant use  as soon as the first indication  of any  i trouble appears.   This is the most successful treatment known and may be  relied   upon  with   implicit confidence  even in cases of cholera infantum. For  sale by all druggists.

Now  in its fifth!  year of popularity, it is.this Beason  produced in an elaborate manner and  employs   the services   of a carefully  selected company of players, in every  way capable of intelligently  portraying the beautiful characteristics of the  creative mind of the famous authoress,  Marie Corelli, who is responsible for  that world-famous novel, "The Ven-  detta." from which  " Fabio Romani"  has been dramatized.    The play is-in  five acta and*> tells a tale of love and  honor, or  rather  the abuse of same.  The  wife of  Romani,  a  butterfly  of  fashion   of   the  seventeenth  century,  becomes   enamored   of   the   life-long  1 friend of her husband, and they jointly  j contrive to consign Romani to the fate  of being buritd alive.    During  his entombment he vows eternal  vengeance  ou the false pair and is  freed from his  living death through the  terrific eruption of Mt. Ves-.ivius and  then follows  the death of his false wife  and friend.  There is nothing of a sensational na-  H E.

They have faith in the Boundary  and intend increasing their investments here. They are accompanied  by their sons, and will visit the Portland Fair before returning home.  To lovers of intelligent romance the  forthcaming production of "Fabio  Romani" at the Auditorium will particularly appeal. It is claimed that a  possible tenth of the world's entire  population has already read Marie  Corelli's famous novel, "The Vendetta," from which book "Fabio  Romano" is an' adaptation. The story  is one of love and honor and deals with  the intrigue of Romani'sfaithless wife,  and their successful efforts in having  him consigned to entombment for life,  during which he registers the Vendetta, or vow of eternal^ vengeance.  The terrific volcanic eruption of Mt.  Vesuvius, however, causes his release  and resurrection, after which he .puts  his oath into execution and then follows the death of the erring wife and  false friend. The play is romantic in  nature, full of emotion and human interest, and while brisk in action never  borders on the sensational. The various picturesque characters are all in  the hands* of. capable players and a  most elaborate scenic and electrical  production is given.  ���:������:-:-�����:  ... *���>���>���;������>��:  :~x��x**x��x��:��x**��:��X":^<"><^:�� * ��>��xr��x^x��x��X'��x-��<'��X"X��X''-��t"XMX��!*' -# ���:  !,'W"XKK<'M|<��K"WMX'<,'I',K,,K,',>''M  :��x*<'"X"X��x*"X~x��t*"X*":"iM?,!M'X-,*x��!��  ;k��x��x��x^x��*x��<��':��xmX*����x��X">^,>a  tt  it  tY  tv  ���t  tv  tt  *t  tv  t?  tt  tv  tv  ft  yt  tv  ���>y  tt  t*  A*  tv  tt  ���:�����.���  Grocery Dept.

(Applause). He dwelt on the necessity of  having the district of Yale-Cariboo  opened up by a railway running from  international boundary line to international boundary line. The development of one portion of the district  would assist every other portion. It  was a -mistake to suppose the prosperity of one town or district would injure a neighboring town cr district.  All parts should work together aud he  felt sure that with two other railways  building through the district the good  -riines-alUwere-looking^fot.wereclose.at^  hand. (Applause). Before closing he  referred to the loyal support given by  other British Columbia members in  the fight for railway competition.  Without their aid ..victory could not  have been secured.  Mayor    Naden,   in    proposing   the  toast to  the  mining  industry,   stated  that he knew Mr. Ross from the ground,  up, and that he had  found  him not an  angel  but a man���a  man   who  could  C,*C**i.*'C#**'w.'*!''***'****t*'-'.'w.4^ ���C**!**.**"  ��J��'*{"J����J����!����!��'*C��'��,*IM��'^  ���<**>**>**><*M>��i***<��><*��><��*^^  ^���^������>��;-**>.i**<**��;i��>��i����>.>.:*M^  fight for what he considered right and  who could not be influenced by any  consideration,no matter how tempting.  He coupled with the toast, "Mining,"  the names of Mayor Rumberger of  Phoenix, W. T. Smith and Alex Miller.  Mayor Rumberger said they were  now celebrating the advent of a competitive railway.. When he arrived  first in the Boundary they didn't have  a competitive trail and were glad to  J5nd even one trail into the country.  However, there, has been a wonderful  development since those days. He referred to the various fights made by  the people of the Boundary for railway  transportation .and the prominent part  played by the guest of the evening in  those fights, and closed by expressing  his pleasure at having the opportunity  to represent the town of Phoenix on  such an occasion. -  W. T. Smith, another pioneer and  successful'mining man, referred to the  wonderful development of the mining  industry and predicted that Greenwood's high grade belt would soon become one of the riohest mining camps  of the world.  Alex Miller also enthused over the  high grade mines and believed if they  had similar showings elsewhere a  xveritable^baom^wouid^re^lt.^^^   W.'M. Law proposed the smelting  industry in a neat speech, in which he  referred to the rapid development of  that industry in the Boundary.  J. E.

He hinted  at���the-enormous-sums paid ...by .the  smelters in freight rates, instancing  the fact that last year his company,  the B. C. Copper, had paid $225,00 in  freight rates alone. Mining and  smelting was a' manufacturing enterprise that had to be conducted with the  same careful attention to business details that ave so necessary in every  other business His company had  {rone ahead as fast and done as much  as they possibly could do. Those who  had invested their money had never  received any return, but he hoped they  now would soon get their reward for  their faith in the. enterprise. (Applause.  Mr. Drummond, the newly appointed  manager of the reorganized Dom.nion  Copper Co., was glad to become a citizen of Greenwood and proud to come  under the old flag once more. (Applause). Both Mr. McAllister aud himself were keeping their eyes on the  Similkameen, believing that they  would there get ores that would be  useful and profitable in their smelting  enterprises. For this reason he was  glad to .join in this tribute to the  splendid work done by Mr. Ross in  hastening the construction of a railway to that humming district. (Applause.)  Duncan Mcintosh, iu proposing a  toast to " Trade and Commerce," said  he was not too died in the wool'Tory  to give Mv. Ross credit for the splendid work lie had done in Ottawa. As  one interested inSlhe Midway and Vernon, he thought he could assure them  lhai?the line would now be built.  W. T. Hunter, in responding, said  that when a candidate was elected by  the people he was supposed to have the  necessary ability  and other qualities  to make good. Sometimes they failed,  but Duncan Ross had made good. (Applause^  '  I. H. Hallett, in responding to the  toast, the " Learned Professions," said  he had been disappointed in Mr. Ross���  pleasantly disappointed that he should  have been able to do such good work  during his first session. He referred  to the learned professions and hoped  the day was not far distant when a  Canadian lawyer would get a million-  dollar fee in the Boundary.  Dr. Oppenheimer and A. S. Thomas  also responded briefly.  The ladies found eloquent champions  in Chief Hallett and W. M. Law.  E. A. Hain of Midway responded to  "The Pioneers," and in doing so said  that through Mr. Ross' efforts the  prosperity which they had waited for  so long in Midway had at last arrived.
