M.  IT IS NOW MIDWAY  The Busiest Town in British  Columbia To-Day.  A REMARKABLE CHANGE  Railway Center  Was for Years  a  SlOW Going Village-  Midway is the Mecca of the railway  builders and others.   The sleepy, little  town   which   reminded one of   Goldsmith's " Deserted  Village,"   has  discarded its Rip Van Winkle aira and is  today a bustling-,  hustling,  growing,  booming-, western town.   The optimist  has already decided that  Midway   is  coming to her own, and that destiny is  at last going to gut a chance, Midway  ia going to be the big town of the interior of British Columbia.   The optimist invests his money and is impatient with his friends because they do  not follow him in his enthusiasm. The  pessimist on the othor hand sits tight.  He remembers the fate of other towns  tbat boomed during railway  construction -days   and   whose greatness   departed with the railway con tractor and  the railway   navvy.   He thinks  Midway will be overdone during construction days, and "when these are ended  that the majority of th�� business men  will be caught with big stocks and but  few to> buy. .-"  Midway will probably, find its level  midway between these two extreme  views. Those who, have interested  themselves in the transportation question realize that within the. near.fu-  future there must be a railway running north and south through the interior of British Columbia, croascutting  the two or probably three transcontinental Vrailways',which are or will be  built in Canada and connecting with  the transcontinental railway systems  of the United States. Such a railway  will find an outlet through the mountains at the international boundary  line, and Midway may be the selected  point. Then, too,. Midway is a raid-  way point in the Coast-Kootenay roads  which, are being built or projected. A  happy combination "of all favorable  factors would make Midway a place of  importance, but��� .  " Let us eat, drink and be merry; tomorrow we die." What's the use of  worrying about the future. Midway  today is a live railway center. The V.,  -W&El.and-the'Midway���and-Vernon  both start from Midway and construction work has commenced. There is  money to be made there today and sufficient for the day are the good times  thereof.  The chief industry of a railway town  is the sale of intoxicants.   The temperance advocate may rage but he has  to face the cold stern facts     Wherever  there is a railway camp there shall also  be found a grogshop, legalized by the  government, or if not, then a grogshop   popularly   known   as  a " blind  pig."    Midway will shortly have many  hotels,   some  good, some  bad, some  worse.   The sleeping accommodation  is needed.   Today the seven or eight  hotels   running cannot furnish   beds  enough, and men sleep on verandahs,  on barroom floors, and in the hall, but  there are seven or eight more in course  of erection, so that thU line of industry is liable  to   meet all reasonable  requirements, solid of liquid.   If not  the latter, then immediately across the  line is the town of Ferry.   It is in the  land of the free where law is useful in  regulating  the conduct of the effete  East and is not intended to restrict  those who are building up a live town  in the wild and woolly west.   Ferry is  growing, too���a few weeks ago il had  one stoor and several saloons; today it  has   more   saloons.   A  dance hall  is  also in course of erection, and when  Ferry is in full swing it will be a right  up to date American town.    Some people will likely call it ;a hell on earth,  but it all depends on the point of view.  We must get back to Midway.    Business men after all are not without the  ���aharacteristics of the gentle sheep���  one  ventures,   others follow.   Before  the   resurrection   the    Midway    mer  chants believed that they could more  than satisfy the business requirements  of the town; today they have competitors from Grand Forks, from Phoenix,  from Eholt and from Greenwood.  Business, after all, cannot be regulated  by the law of supply and demand.  That may work all right in the settled  East, but in the West, where there is  business enough ior one merchant,  there must surely be business enough  for two, and where two are prosperous  four are sure to make money.  Midway can boast of the best town-  site in the country.   The broad valley  where Kettle river and Boundary creek  join, with the low rolling hills behind,  makes an ideal townsite, but there is  too   much  townsite.    If   the   Midway  Townsite   company   were   wise   they  would subdivide a portion  of the valley into small fruit farms, which could  be sold at good prices. There is plenty  of water to irrigate and when railway  construction days arc  over a number  of prosperous fruit growers surrounding Midway might prove a strong support  in  the time of need.   Townsite  owners, however, do not take kindly to  advice, so Midway is  likely  to remain  for some time a large tract of good  land,   capable of sustaining  a large  population,   but  outside of the small  portions   dignified    by   the   name   of  building lots, which  will be used by  those who establish their homes there,  the valley will remain a common tor a  few horses and cows, each armed with  an unmusical bell, and each doing its  share in disturbing the dreams of the'  Midwayites.   Even  the  most enthusiastic believer in  Midway  cannot anticipate a population of more than, ten  thousand people   in  the next'twenty  years.   There is  townsite enough for  one hundred  thousand.   It is a simple  waste of good land.  ��� However, that is not our affair. Mid-"  way today is the town of British Columbia. May its shadow never grow  less and may the hopes of the optimist  be realized.  COAST BUSINESS MEN  Viewing the Promised Land���An M.  P. Who Helped in Railway Fight.  R. G. McPherson,  M.  P.   for Vancouver,  and K.  P.  McLennan, of the  well known hardware firm of McLennan & McFeeley, spent two days in the  district last week.    They came -in over  the Great Northern and returned home  Sunday morning by  the same routeO  As representative of the big wholesale  center of the province, Mr. McPherson  was anxious to  see something of the  country  most  affected by the V., V. &  E.  legislation,  which  he in common  with all the B. C. members strongly  supported.   To do this he had to op-  .pose^n^old^time^ prejudiceinVancou-  ver.   In   the   early   days   of   railway  struggles in the interior many people  in Vancouver could  not see  that  the  opening up of the interior would largely  benefit the coast cities.   There are still  a few who continue in this belief. Mr.  McPherson   returned   home   strongly  convinced that no  mistake was made  in supporting the V., V. & E.   legislation and the  time is   close   at   hand  when his own constituency will derive  the greatest benefit from the early construction  of   a    competitive   railway  through Southern British Columbia.  Mr. McLennan saw plenty of opportunities to do business in the Boundary aud he is determined that sO far as  his firm is concerned Vancouver will  get its share of the increaned trade.  Ole   Lund of   Spokane lectured on  Socialism   in   Eagles'   hall Thursday  evening.   Mr.   Lund   is an  ex-saloon  keeper, having been a  producer of the  world's wealth in that line of business  for a  number of years,   serving  the  public���and  booze���with  more or less  distinction  in   Spokane,   Nelson   and  Kaslo.    He is now "producing wealth"  as the  paid   lecturer of the Socialists.  Mr. Lund is  a fluent speaker and has  the Utopian  system   of handling the  world's   business   down   to a  nicety.  In   listening   to   the   gentleman,   the  question    frequently    intrudes   itself  "why one   physically   so  strong had  never seen   the   necessity  of himself  becoming   a   producer."    Perhaps   he  could   be   of   as much  benefit to humanity on the end of a* 7 foot saw as  he now is living off the earnings of <  hard-working men.  For guns and ammunition, all kinds,  see A.

The Gazette states that corruption of a widespread and lamentable sort cau be easily pointed out  as having existed in the Liberal  party. The Gazette should make  public these widespread and lamentable corrupt acts. There  is no law forbidding the exposure  of acts of this kind, although  some interested persons appear to  think that a newspaper should be  punished for having the temerity  to expose corrupt acts of public  men acting in a public capacity.  The Gazette would be doing  the party it supports a  good ser  vice if it had the courage to denounce corrupt acts within that  party. The conduct of the Board  of License ' Commissioners in  Bouudary district must necessarily reflect on the government  which, created the commission.  Responsibility cannot be escaped  by the general statement that the  other fellow is equally bad.  "We appreciate very much the  spirit"iu which *the* Gazette tenders advice to the Times in all  matters relating to the criticism  of public affairs, but regret that  we cannot see our way clear to  accept this advice. A. kid-glove,  paper-backed style of journalism  may be eminently suited to the  editor of the Gazette. It doubtless has advantages when one is  bound hand and foot by political  affiliations that are ..personally  distasteful: The Times is not  built that way, however. We believe iu calling a spade a spade,  and while we regret that strong  criticisms sometimes hurts the  individual, such acts as those under discussion deserve the strongest possible condemnation,  INSTRUCTIONS     DISREGARDED.  In their anxiety to favor political pals, the members of the  Board of License Commissioners  for Boundary district disregarded  the instructions issued by; the attorney-general. A short time  ago Hon. Mr. Wilson issued iu-  structions to license commissioners that no licenses should be issued along the lines ���'���������of railway  under coustructioh.VV'He pointed  out that railway contractors were  opposed "to such road .houses and  in the interests of good order no  such houses should be ' licensed.  His instructions were* observed by  the board of license commissioners having jurisdiction -over the:  territory- \ through which the  Kamioops, Nicola and Similkameen railwayis being constructed,  Iu the Boundary, however, the  board showed indecent haste in  disregarding the .'attorney-general's ��� instructions and issued a  sort of a perambulating license to  be' used at the most effective point  on the line of the * V., V. & E.  The law was violated and the  instructions of the attorney-general disregarded.  GETTING ACQUAINTED.  The visit of R. G. McPherson,  M. P., and R. P. McLennan to  tfieTBouHcljft^^lif^  by those of other prominent men  from the coast cities. The growth  of the province has been stunted  by jealousy and narrow sectionalism. When the people realize  that the development of any section of the province must necessarily benefit every other section  andpull together in all matters,  a change for the better will soon  come. The coast should be the  the best friend of the "interior and  the interior the best friend of the  coast. This friendly feeling  could be largely brought about  the people of the coast visiting  the interior and learning something about the resources of the  country and the aspirations of its1  people, regarding both of which  the majorit}' of coast citizens now  enjoy.a marked ignorance.'  Tirii utter lack of busiuess capacity displayed by the McBride  government is exhibited in its  administration of the. valuable  timber areas of the province. A  business government would secure  all possible revenue out-of such a  valuable asset and would make  some effort lo preserve our timber  from forest fires. Year after year  thousands of dollars are lost in  the destruction of timber by fire,  and no change of policy is contemplated so long as the MclJride  government   remains   in   power.  Iu fact, the evils complaiued of  appear to become more aggravated year by year.  The board of license commissioners for the Boundary district  have jurisdiction in the provincial electoral districts of Greenwood and Grand Porks, but the  McBride government could find  no one iu Greeuwood riding that  it would appoint to that remarkable body. All are Grand Porks  men. Rather suggestive, isn't.it?  (?,  rr  The continuously successful  series of failures which have  marked the career of the attorney  general of this proviuce almost  convinces the general public that  that distinguished gentleman was  surreptitiously Oslerized about  the time he.assumed office"  There will be something-doing- every  riiyht as well as every day at the Spokane Interstate. Fair this fall,'October  9th . to 25th. The management have  decided to put on a night show at the  Fair grounds on every night of fair  week except Saturday and.Sunday, and  electric liyhts are. now being installed  all over the grounds. The exhibition  buildings will.a-.l_be open and lighted  and all of the attractions on the ''Midway" will be lighted and running at  full blast, and iu addition a ���vaudeville  show and-a band concert will be given  before the grand stand, the whole concluding- with a' .magnificent display of  fireworks. Admission to the grounds  iu'thc evening- will be onlg* 25 cents,  and 25 cents to the grandstand, Although an out of door night show is an  innovation for the Spokane Interstate  Fair, it has been- tried by most of the  bif*r fairs of the eastern and central  states and in every instance has been  very successful....

THE WASTE DUMP.
Gas pipe tools are used extensively
in prospecting for coal, clay and other
minerals where the rock formations
are comparatively soft.
Milk of lime has the reputation of
quickly and effectively extinguishing-
mine fires by filling when pumped the
crevices of the coal or minerals.
About 18,000 tons of 60-pound steel
rails were manufactured iu Japan for
use in building' the military lines in
Korea, besides many thousand tons of
lighter rails.
At the old pyrite mines in Virginia
cement copper is obtained from the
mine water by precipitation upon scrap
iron, and is dried, screened and barreled for market; A goon price is
realized.
Nickel-thermit will increase the resistivity of cast iron tanks against
chemical action. In Germany nickel
thermit is now used successfully in
the manufacture of alkali pots, the
amount of nickel thus introduced into
c".st iron being about one half of one
per ce nt. Nickel thermit is now being
utilized in the United States for the
same purpose.
Calcium carbide in the form of sticks
or blocks is now manufactured in the
electric furnace at Niagara Falls, N.
Y. The advantages of this form are
that the calcium carbide can be exposed to moist air and handled without
suffering appreciable decomposition;
it can be caused to' give off gas with
greatregularity when used; in a suitable generator, and when the generation of gas is to be stopped,this can
be done practically'instantaneously.
■ An interes9ing use of caustic soda at
Niagara Falls, N. Y., is for the production of sodium. An important compound made from sodium is sodium peroxide. By fusing sodium peroxide the
solid cakes may be used as generators
of oxygen, much as calcium carbide is
employed for the generation of acetylene.
The mining and preparation of
ochres, umbers and siennas are similar
to that of iron oxide pigments, with
the exception that at times the ground
product, in part or wholly, i.s first
heated in a furnace until the desired
color has been obtained. Instead of
settling the ground material, it is
sometimes passed through a pneumatic
separator which yields" an impalpably
fine and uniform product.
Cromium is becoming more important to the steel industry, especially in
the manusacture of shells and tempered products, tool steel and the like.
in generarwhenever properties of particular hardness are desired. It is introduced into the steel either in the
form of pure metallic chronium, as
made by Goldschmidt's alumino thermic process,, or in the form of ferroalloys, which are now made in considerable quantities, especially in the
electric furnace.

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
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.
Mining will be given more careful
attention this year than evet before by
the Spokane Interstate Fair, which is
held from October 9 to IS. The newly
, issued premium list has a well pre-
prepared and well arranged list of
premiums, covering all the lines of
mining in this part of the country. It
is the intention of the management lo
make ihe mining department'better
than ever. This district as well as
every other, should make a good display, for there will be thousands of
visitors from the east at the Spokane
Fair this year.

Stevens,  who,was  recently  appointed  chief engineer by   Prosident   Roosevelt   at   a  salary of $60,000 a y tar, spent 1898 and  ; "99, climbing  the mountains between  .Robson    and    Greenwood.      He    was  , chief engineer of the  Great Northern  railway,\>Jt when the C. P. R. awarded a'$4,000,000 contract  to construct a  railway from  Robson   to  Midway,   to  Mann,   Foley   Bros.,   Larson   &   Co.,  Steveus gave up his position  with  the  > Great Northern to become engineer for  the   contractors.      Stevens   likes   the  mountains   and   difficult   engineering  feats.    His first great success was the  V construction   of   the   Great   Northern  railway across the Cascade mountains.  After the construction  of  the C. fc.W.  he went back to. the humdrum of office  life and was with the Rock Island  line  previous to his  appointment  to one of  the  most .important  positions in   the  gift of the president.  v**. John  G.   Sullivan   was  W. F. Tye's  assistant during  the the  construction  of the  Columbia and  Western.     Tye  made a reputation in  successfully  carrying to completion this difficult  piece  of work arid when he  was promoted to  the position of chief engineer, of the C.  P.   R.  system,  he did  not forget the  man   who   roughed it   with   him   And  ably assisted him  in  the  construction  of the C. & W.    He appointed John G.  Sulliuan his assistant with  headquarters at Winnipeg.    But John   F. Stevens remembered John G. Sullivan and  when he wanted a man   he  could trust  in the difficult work of cutting through  :    the Isthmus  of  Panama, he engaged  John G- Sullivan at a salary of $20,000.  The two Johns proved their metal in  the  mountains of  the  Bouudary  and  they will  build  the  Panama canal if  the   yellow jack- and   the politicians  will let them.  FLOYD & COX.

Poultry raising- with a Chatham  Incubator is a very profitable and  easily managed occupation. Unless  you want to go into it extensively it  need take but very .-little of your time.  Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatry in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for more. That means a steady  market and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens success-  full}' with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying. While she is hatching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying live or six dozen egg-s. The  percentage of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in'Incubator construction that has been produced. .They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. Between these walls  mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  a^a rock."

That means that you  can take olT seven or eight hatches  and make considerable money out of  the Incubator before the first payment  becomes due.  We couldn't make this offer if we  were not certain that if you accept it  you will get complete satisfaction, if  we were not positive that the Chatham  Incubator will pay you a handsome  yearly income.  .This is a straightforward offer.

Twenty Miles to Be Built This Year  and Road Completed Next Year.  Ralph Smailes returned from New-  York on Wednesday evening and left  again by Thursday's stage for Victoria, During his visit East Mr.  Smailes completed all arrangements,  for the sale of the Midway and Vernon charter and the construction of  of the road. The purchasers are a  strong financial syndicate of whom A.  A. Arthur of New York is the head.  Their attention was attracted -to the  venture by D. H. McDowell of Victoria  and John Kane, a New Yorker, who  has been operating in th'e West for  several years.  Under the terms of the agreement  with the syndicate twenty miles of the  railway has to be constructed before  January 1906. The work of construction is now under way, McLean Bros,  being superintendents of construction  for the first ten miles. Accompanying  Mr. Smailes as far as Spokane was the  recently appointed chief engineer of  the Midway and Vernon. He went direct to Victoria and will be joined by  Mr. Smailes there. As soon as one or  two legal formalities are complied  with the chief engineer will come to  the Boundary and take direct charge  of the work. He expects to immediately  let contracts as far as Westbridge.  Survey parties will be put in the  field from the summit of the divide between the West Fork of the Kettle and  Okanagan lake, and everything made  ready for the completion of the line to  Vernon next year. The probable distance of the line is about 135 miles.  Mr. Smailes will return to Greenwood  early next week.  The rich and promising country to  be traversed by the Midway and Vernon has been described several times  in these columns. The mineral richness of the West Fork has .attracted  the attention of mining men for some  years and with the transportation-  problem solved, this district is sure to  take a leading place among the mining camps of British Columbia. There  are belts of good timber and limited  areas of agricultural lands. On the  other side of the divide is the Okanagan valley, the garden of British Columbia. It was Robert Wood, the  lather of Greenwood, who saw the necessity of opening up this country by  a railway. , He was heavily interested  in mining claims on the West Fork  and also had extensive interests in the  Okanagan. He associated with him  local people and secured a charter from  the provincial government at Victoria,  a provincial subsidy followed. Then  Dominion legislation was secured and  also the statutory federal subsidy. But  the scheme almost failed because it  was hard to interest capital in the enterprise. Mr. Smailes, who is manager for R. Wood & Co., kept working  away, and at last succeeded in getting  the necessary capital a few days before  the time limit imposed by federal legislation expired.  SUCCEEDING IN OREGON.  Two Well Known Boundary Smelter  Men Promoted.  A recent issue of the Oregon Mining  Journal, published at Grant's 'Pass,  contains pleasiug information in  reference to .two mining men well  known in ..the Boundary, W. S. Keith  and George Crerar. Mr. Keith was  assistant,superintendent of the Boundary Falls smelter, and Mr. Crerar was  assayer at the same smelter. In reference to their present position the  Journal says:  "Chas. L. Tutt, president of the Ta-  kilma Smelting Co., returned to the  Pass on Sunday^from the smelter, and  left the same evening for the north.  Mr. Tutt said everything was going  along nicely. Some 25 teams were  running constantly between this city  and Takilma, going Joaded with coke  and. returning with matte, and some  15 teams are employed around the  mine, hauling the ore to the smelter.  Arthur. H. Carpenter, who has been  general manager, will return to the  Pass Tuesday and then return to Denver. From now on the management  will be divided into departments with  heads to each department. W. S.  Keith will have charge of the smelter,  while R.'S. Stettler and Geo. Crerar  will each have a department in the  business management. Some fine ore  bodies are being opened up, aud from  present indications the smelter will be  kept busy" until fall rains make the  roads impassable.

Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock a  landslide occurred at Spence's Bridge  completely destroying the'Indian village and causing the death of 15 Indians and injuring 13 others. Three  Indians were fishing for salmon when  the slide came down, and they were  seen no more.  The slide came from the mountain  slope opposite the village, adjacent to  the slide of six years ago. It came  across the Thompson river, damming  it completely for five hours, the water  and salmon being thrown up on the  railway track.  '\The water rose twenty feet above the  slide, covering the gardens on the flats  Drs.'Wade and Chipperfield of Kamioops, Sanson of Ashcroft, and Kerr of  the Nicola railway construction; were  sent for and attended the injured.  The slide was caused by seepage  from the irrigation ditch on the mountain side. This is the third slide from  the same place, but the only one attended with fatal results.  #��#*#*#*##*###���#��*����##*****����!#** *J**^  Good Dinner  or  ...Try The...  ... WINDSOR CAFE...
