IF THERE IS SOMETHING  | WRONG WITH IT BRING IT TO A  | PRACTICAL WATCHMAKER. OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  OtrtMidORK IS GUARARIT6EB  Bids Fair To  Be  Realized  Presently  INDICATIONS FAVORABLE  For a Movement all Along the  Line  in That Region of Wonderful  Potentialities  The indications multiply that  tlie redemption of the wonderful  West Fork country . is at hand.  Its wealth of valley and hill, of  forest and mine is likely to be  realized. The patient waiting- of  many years would appear to be  about over, and activity is soon  to characterize the country long  lying- waste.'  From many sources, none of  them too well confirmed however,  comes the story that a railwav,  so long; the desire of those interested directly, was to be built.  A railway into the country means  everything-. And while a railway  ���will make its wealth available its  resources will make a railway  profitable. Ores that will not  bear transportation over 50 miles  of wagon road will pay a handsome margin with railway carriage. Within the last few weeks  as if incited by railway rumors,  capital has been looking into the  district's resources.  Rey. Father Ferroux has just  returned from a trip to Carmi,  where hve has become interested  in the Dale estate and has secured  au option on 20,000 acresof C.P.R.  land at different points in the valley. /He plans an immense colonization scheme which will-include  milling as well as farming.  Capital represented by Mr.  Trewartha-James is'at the moment carefully investigating the  the Carmi mine. Thirteen men  are at work on the property and  it is being most scrupulously ex-  perted. Once the values established, and the saving of the same  made evident, the property will be  systematically worked.  Other parties are in the field to  investigate the Butcher Boy.  A New York mining concern  will be. here in a few days to acquire holdings on Wallace Mountain.  ���-"An o t e d" mi n i n g" e n giueer - who"  made his initial trip into the district recently and who made tests  of several properties: and was rewarded by assay returns as high  as $900, has gone to New York to  finance a'deal'for a group of properties near Beverdell. Of course  the initial condition favorable to  the ultimate consummation of all  these things is the building of  the Midway and Vernon and once  the district is assured of this, development such as the Boundary  has never known will be the feature of the day.  For the earl}' building of this  road wc think we see favorable  indications independent of the reports that come from the Coast  and elsewhere.  We trust that this time the district may not draw a blank. The  winning ticket is in the box and  it certainly looks as if it was to  be drawn.  FATHER FERROUX'COLONY  When Rev. Father Ferroux was  here this week he visited Father  Bedard and'spoke very enthusiastically over his colonization  scheme in the West Fork. He  studied the country visited from  a geological standpoint and found  the soil, especially about Carmi,  to conform to his wants. He will  return this fall with a few families and make preparations for.the  coming of a large number in the  spring. Within two years he expects to plant 1,00.0 families in the  district. |-        r   -.|^-^_*  v\  ALRER ON COPPERS  His Letter   in 'the  mercial  Cora-  BRITISH COLUMBIA COPPER  PEN AND -SCISSOKS-  Business Brevities  A uew wood pipe factory is designed for Penticton.

What the Company  Has   and  What  It is Doinc���Management Ef 'ective  and Profits Good.  FRUIT POSSIBILITIES  The Canadian Horticulturist  has the following to say about  fruit possibilities of the Boundary  district:���  "No. 6 is usually called the  Boundary or Kettle River country  and althoug-h the smallest of all  the districts named the quality of  the laud is excellent and the climatic conditions all that could be  desired. Where a sufficient .water is obtainable,there is no trouble  in producing fruit of the highest  quality."  AN ORE BOM FOUND  In a Novel end Unexpected  Way  A number of leading Kelowna  citizens have formed the Kelowna Tobacco Leaf company with  a capitalization- of $50,000. At  the meeting for organization $50-  000.of the stock -was subscribed  by those present.  The latest map of British Columbia g-ot out by the C.P.R.  civing the lines and projected  lines of communication, shows  the Spence's Bridge and Nicola  branch extender!' "in dotted lines  from Quilchena to Princeton,  Hedley, Keremeos and Fairview  to Midway, says the Penticon  Press.  When 37 strikebreakers from  Sydney, Nova Scotia, landed at  Cobalt tbe other day, under the  delusion that the strike was over  and learned that they had been  misinformed, thev resolved in a  body that they didn't want work  badly enough to take the places  of union men,and so notified the  mine owners off hand.  MINER MENTION  NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER  Bill Miner is still at larg-e.  The   guards   at   Westminster  still pace the board  walk.  The Grand Trunk railway . has  submitted to the government  plans for a new two million dollar central station at Ottawa.  Ityvill be one of the-finest in the  Dominion.L _Proposed one tiiillion  dollar G.T.P.Hotel will probably  be erected on Nepean Point, overlooking the Ottawa River and  Parliament Hill and will correspond to the Chateau Frontenac of  Quebec in respect to size and magnificence.  Great Northern officials are  startled by the discovery that  several hundred feet of water  front ou the inlet, which they  have bought at a high price from  J. A. Mara aud the Vancouver  Engineering Works, was on deeds  originally from the C. P. R.,  which contain clauses that the  land cannot at any time be used  for any other railway than the  Canadian Pacific.���.A trifle fovy  and it ought to be illegal.  Our Faithful Alley.  We possess the friendship of  Great Britain, and we shall remain faithful to our alliance. If  William II. goes to Loudon he  will not change a situation which  simple politeness did not create  and will not suffice to destroy.���  Petite Kepublique, Paris.  Tn tlie 'Boston Commercial of August  10th, George I,, Walker has the follow-  iug about British Columbia Copper  Company:���  British Columbia Copper i.s now operating- all three of the furnaces at its  smelter and reducing 2000 tons of ore  ilaily. About l*-)00. tons of ibis ore  come f'-oin the company's own -mines,  and the remainder is custom ore. It's  furnaces, which are largest and deepest in the district, with a single exception, are working- splendidly. The  plant is one of the very best of its size  anywhere, having all the facilities for  l;an-11iiig ore, coke and slag economically and gettiug highly satisfactory  results.  ,   .   ���   ' '  Until very recently British Columbia's smelter was an antiquated affair,  only a ve.iy little belter than none at  all. Within a year it has been almost  completely reconstructed, new furnaces  and ore bins being built and mechanical feed installed. That the plant is  effective now is shown by the relatively  siiiall number of men employed. Aside  from the ofiice force, there are only  i60 men on the pay roll at the B.C.  smelter. The management feels that  with the reconstructed smelter running  all its troubles are past, and that from  now on operations should yield substantial net profits.  Electric power is used exclusively at  the smelter, and the only coal consumed is in the forges of its" blacksmith's  shop, and for heating iu winter. The  electric power is generated by water by  a local company which ha * consolidated  several different plants in the district.  Wire connections from different waterfalls have been made in such a manner  that even a temporary failure of supply  is next to,an impossibility. This electricity is supplied at goS per horsepower  annnally,"ancl therefore costs less than  half as much as it would to generate an  .equal amount of -power Cwith coal.  Cheap electrical power is a great help  to all the mines of the Boundary dis  trict.atid there is no reason to fear that  the supply will ever decrease or the  cost increase.  A considerable portion of the custom  ores treated come from properties own  ed or operated on bond by a company  called the Consolidated,-which is controlled by the Canadian Pacific railway  or associated 'interests.' This consoli  dated company has been reaching ou-'V  recently and has acquired several properties of some demonstrated and great  prospective value. Whether this company intends building a smelting plant  ot its own has not. been announced;  but to all appearances its arrangement  with the B.C. is satisfactory. As the  Consolidated company's production increases, therefore/the British Columbia  company- should have a'steadily growing income from its custom smelting  business.  *; The British Columbia's-Mother Lode  is one of the big mines of the district.  It is developed by tunnels and a shaft  and is equipped for economic production. At present it is putting out about  1,100 tons of ore daily. The * ompany  JJ? .|A'rA'jlQPllig.:P_tllgr..tJrop.er.tieS-.-.whicii.-  offer excellent promise. One of these  is a pyrite mine, the ore of which so  far carries only very low values; but  because of its excess of iron and sulphur, one or two cars of this ore goes  to the smelter daily.  As a whole, the ores produced and  treated by the British .Columbia company are slightly lower grade than  those of the Granby, yielding an average of about 21 pounds of copper arid  Sl.25 in gold and silver lo the ton.  They also run low" in sulphur, about  "2-Vi per cent to 4 per cent, out this deficiency is beine overcome by the use oi  the iron sulphide ore previously mei.-  tioned.  ���    ���    "  On a 20.i enl copper market, British  Columbia's ore has a gn.ss value of  S.S.-lO, ami Miould yield a profit of $2  per ton, oSl',080,000 annually on a pro  dilution of 1,400 tons. To This custom  smelting profits on 600 tons of ore  daily should be .added. A 15 cent cop  per uia'ki!t would make its ores worth  St.40 per ton but lhere would still be a  profit of about SI per ton, arid this,  with its custom .smelling business,  should still provide net earnings ot  SfiOO.OO or more aniiu illy without any  further increase in the capacity of its  plant. The mining development  which the company has under way.  however, should soon make a demand  for a la'rger smelter.  As a whole f was very favorably im  pressed by the British Columbia company's mines, its smelter and management. The enterprise will be a permanent one. and the stock should be  bought on reactions and held for a substantial rise.

About five o'clock a small sinking of the surface ground took  place just north of the Company's  old boarding house across the  street!.!from the Brooklyn Hotel,  and not very* far from the cave-in  of a year ago.  But   later   events showed that  this was only preliminary to  greater events to follow. About  half-past seven in the evening a  much larger one occurred, and  with a sound that startled everybody and a jar that shook the  town, a strip about fifty feet wide  and extending up the side-hill 1o  the Company's plant went down  to the 300 foot level, carrying the  ore bins with it and leaving the  Canadian Pacific mine track suspended in the air. Nobody appears to have been caught in wh at  appeared to be a catastrophe, although men had all day been  busied thereabout, and although  ore had been loaded there all day.  "When the noise had ultimately  subsided, and the dust had  cleared away, and visitors became  sufficiently bold to look over the  scene, it was discovered that a  hitherto unknown ore body of  considerable extent had been flop-'  ened'up. A new glory hole had  suddenly appeared and the inconvenience of nature's methods of  development were much more  than offset .by-the expedious way  .of-doing thing*. The air-drill,  and even the diamond drill are  not in it with this new method of  ore discovery, and the Dominion  people are. ahead of the game  one'-cannot..yet tell how much.  What luck some people  do have.

Now it would appear  up to the mining concerns of the  Kootenay to send somebody a box  of apples "presented by the mining men of the Kootenay."

The press  everywhere that has kept in touch  with the situation has been predicting a coming shortage due to  growing demand, to  a  declining  -i  output due to  shortage  ol   men,  of the lesser and coke-consuming  ���cmi panics to go without. If this  district which ought to have* the  'first righ} to the fuel ouput of  provincial fields nearby, is to be  sacrificed for foreign interests, it  will certainly be up to somebody,  private or government, to open  more coal fields or see that home  interests get their due.  In this connection it is gratifying to read iu The Columbian  that : ';A. C. Flumerfelt, president of the International Coal  and Coke Company of Coleman,  and the Alberta Coal Company of  Lunbreck, andVN. H. Galer, vice-  president and general manager of  those companies, are broadening-  the scope of their operations in  the field of coal mining by opening a new mine, the third to be  operated by them in Alberta.  They haverecent^'organized the  Royal Colleries, Ltd., which has  purctiased the Barnes mine, five  miles from Lethbridge, together  with 600 acres of coal land, and  will proceed to develop the property."  We are sure that Canadians  generally -will share in the hope  that his return to Canada may be  blessed to Hon. Edward Blake by  a return to health. Men of his  character can ill be spared lo  Canada and the Empire just now.  The new Royal Mint to be opened at Ottawa soon is likely to  direct its first attention to the  coinage of a new nickel penny.  This will use up some of the Sudbury nickel and give church treasurers in the east a busy day on  Mondays.  Down in Toronto where the  light of a higher situation breaks  upon all the land, and where they  cau raise over $100 for the education of Longboat, they are preparing for a great exhibition this  autumn. The prize list is worthy  the great city and embraces:���  Prizes for cattle $8,717  %l        Cats and dogs  7,Sf>5  Fruit  1,545  "        Fine Artj      500  Fruit,Agriculture, dairy products  poultry, all combined are to get  S7,211 and cats and dogs $7,865.  Wc look to see cats and dogs become a great part of the resources  of the civilized east hereafter.  TOLD IN FIGURES  Official figures issued lately by Mr.  T. G. OjLfcleii, third vice-president of,  the C.P.R., show that the company has  had another banner year.  The gross earnings of the fiscal year  just closed were S/2,000,000, which is  an increase of about 520.000,000 over  the year 1904-5, or about a million a  month in the last two years. These  earnings, including the receipts from  the steamship lines and the hotels form  an actual total of 572,217,527, as compared with S61,669,758 of one year ago.  The mt profits nre declared to be  S2S,303,333, as compared with $23,973.-  312 the year before. The profits would  have been la rger but for -the extraor:  dinary expense last winter, irf keeping  the line clear in the western sections.  During the month of July 138 homestead entries were recorded at "the Dominion lands office, Winnipeg. During  the same month of last year the entries  numbered 122.  EDITORIAL NOTES  Reports about the North-west  crop prospects are very conflicting.  Now they're assured and now a  failure.  and to shortage of carriage.  The matter is coming home to  the Boundary in practical shape.  For some-time the Grauby plant  has not been running its full capacity owing to coke shortage and  on Saturday last the B.C. Copper  Company was obliged to blow  out ore at its 600 furnaces for  the same reason.  The,disorganization due to the  strike last spring may be pritnar-  ly charged with the trouble. The  reserves at the smelting plants  and of the railways were all used  up. it took some time to get the  mines again cleaned up. many  men left the coal fields and new  ones have not come readily forward and so the output was somewhat curtailed while the demand  has been constantly growing.  But we think there is another  and potent reason for the situation. The coke companies claim  that coal selling is more profitable than coke selling and as the  demand for coal is abnormal it is  (juite easily seen that the fuel  companies may not worry that  their output of coal is sold before  it reaches the less profitable coke  stage.  The Canadian Pacific takes all  the coal of the International Co..  and the Great Northern all that  of the Crow's Nest Co.. and when  these joint concerns hare absolutely all the coal they waul east,  west and south, it falls to the lot  New York seems to be afflicted  with a sickness characterised by  "falling fits. "' At least the  stock market is.  F. H. McGuigan, first vice-president of the Great Northern Railway, could endure the Hill methods for only four short months.  He got out.  From January to July 30, 100,000  passed through Montreal: ' The came  from all quartets of the globe, except  the Orient, and while the word '"settler"  embraces men of al! trades, it means  people who come out in the second and  third-class on the ocean liners,and who  come to Canada to make a living.  These figures do not of course include  the ordinary travel. They are confined to,the people who leave the steamer  at Quebec and Montreal and travel  west to find homesteads or work.   '  If, as the doctors allege,  John D. Rockefeller is good  to live until he is 94, we wonder  how much of this world's goods  will remain at his death for other  people. Like the ancients, John  D. is a great believer in the use  of oil.  One clause of a bill before the  legislature of New Zealand, and  in fair way of passing, provides  for the admission of women as  representatives to the upper  house. The Premier favored the  clause. New Zealand bids fair to  vie with Finland sooninthismatter of feminine law-makers.  Five years ago the population of the  Canadian prairie provinces was 466,000  and the grain crop was 43,000,000 bushels In 1906 the population was 1,000,-  000, and the grain crop was 200,000,-  000 bushels, one half of this being  wheat and grown on less than 4 per  cent, of the net area of land available  for cultivation in that section.  According to the last census the valuation placed on the copper smelting  and refining industry in the "United  States was ��240,780,21*5 in 1005, which  compares with 3165,131,670 in 1900,  showing an increase of S75,648,546, or  nearly 46 per cent.  GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC  I CW��0<>00<K)000<)WjOOOCOOO<WO  Getting a Move On Itself  The Western press is just now circu  lating the following good news  anent  G.T.P. building in the west:���  Information has been received here  that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad  will push its construction work ou the  Pacific Coast with all possible vigor.  In addition to building the branch from  Kitamaat to Hazleton, which will be  180 miles long, aud the contract for  which is held by Foley Bros. & Larsen  the company will this fall start on the  100 miles of road from Prince Rupert  up the Skeena river to Kitselas canon.  This is on the main line.  Work on the section west from Kd-  monton to a point 60 miles east of the  summit of .he Rockies, comprising 200  miles, will also be stated this fall.  President Hays and Vice-president  Morse of the G.T.P. will be in Van-  cower early in September to personally withness tlie beginning of the operations. The first 100 mile section out  of Prince Rupert will embrace mote  track work than any other part of the  Hue. Allowing for most favorable  conditions, it is expected that two years  will be required for the completion of  the line. Foley Bros, expect to spend  two years on that sectiou popularly  known as the Kitamaat branch.  White labor will be used exclusively  in this work. One million dollars will  be spent for supplies in Vancouver this  year. , -  The Boundary's Pay-roll in  industrial concerns alone, today  totals A Quarter of a  Million  Dollars monthly.

WHY   IT   IS   DIFFICULT  For The Man Who Evidences The Wish  To Be Correctly Dressed  When Bill Miner, the bandit,  made his recent escape from the  New Westminster Penitentiary,  many expressions of hope for his  safe get-away were heard on the  coast we hear. This means that  tliere are people whose sympathies  are with men and not soeiet}-.  Miner does uot   appear   to have  Good tailoring is necessary for satisfactory results in a frock co it. The  costume depends for its effect on its  absolute correctness, and a man who  wears a frock suit evidences his wish  to be smartly dressed. Few tailors  have Mastered the difficulty because  orders for frock suits are few and far  between. A tailor may make only four  or five in a season.  Semi-ready tailoring is the only way  to get one absolutely and gracefully  correct in the prevailing mode" It is  much better to do without a frock if a  good cut and make cannot be gotten.  The coat and all-its appointments must  be correct as they are in the S25 and  $30 frock suits in the Semi-ready  Wardrobe.

It is cooling,  satisfying and refreshing. It makes the enjoyment of the outdoor luncheon  complete, for it is a food as well as, a drink. y '-'.-���.  Pabst brews for food qualitiesas well as for purity and flavor. Pabst  found the only way to get all of the food-values out of the barley-grain  was to follow Nature in making the malt, by growing it slowly, and  scientifically, and he therefore perfected the Pabst Eight-Day Malting  Process.   Pabst Malt is richer in nutriment than other malts.  'vv..;;^:.^.;';:.^; Beer  oi  Quality   ;:  is a more healthful, wholesome food than other beers.   The Pabst Perfect- Brewing  Process blends the rich food values of Pabst Eight-Day Malt with the tonic properties  of the choicest hops under conditions that insure positive purity, whue reducing the  ' percentage of alcohol to the minimum���less than 3i%.  Pabst Blue Ribbon is the ideal family beer, because of its food values, its purity  and its remarkably small amount of alcohol, making it a truly temperance drink.  When ordering beer ask for Pabst Blue Ribbon.  Made   by   Pabst  at  Milwaukee  And Bottled only at the Brewery.  Greenwood Liquor Co.,  Copper St., Greenwood, R. C.

The uncertainty of fuel alone  will prevent the addition of another furnace to the B. C. Co's.  battery of three, at an early date.  Even this uncertainty may not  defeat the purpose.  Considerable inconvenience has  resulted to claim owners in the  vicinity of Beaverdell by the absence of the mining Recoader who  is east on a visit. Unfortunately  (.here is no one in camp qualified  to administer au oath and so the  proofs of works have to, come to  Greenwood.

The Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Company, Ltd., has  declared it's regular quarterly  dividend of 2>2 percent., payable  on August 1st. As the company  pays these dividends regularly  each quarter the total dividends  for a year amount to 10 per cent,  on the .par value of the shares,  which is S100 ; in other words,  for each share held a dividend of  S10 is received each year.
