Copper Street  v\r'v\/- ./WW >1  That Greenwood in addition to being the centre of' actual mining operations in the Boundary is the recognized headquarters of the' industry may  be gathered from a perusal of the list  of companies operating from "this  point; Here are located the ' following  all at present in active operation : *The  B. C. Copper Co.j Dominion Copper  Co., Providence Mining Co., Prince  Henry ' Mining Co., Elkhorn Mining  Co., Vancouver-Boundary Development'  and Mining Co., Crescent Mines,  Greenwood-Eureka Gold Mining Co.,  and Helen-Strathmore Mines.  Then there are the Ruby, Preston  Greyhound, Moreen-, Maori,- Norena  and others, non-incorporated but in.  operation, while the Duucan and Rambler oh the West Fork are owned and  operated from here1.'  Many, other companies not now working maintain "head-offices in Greenwood .viz the Buckhorn Gold and Copper Mining Co., the Golconda Mining  Co., the McRae Copper Mines, the  Enterprise and Anchor, the Boundary  Creek Mining and Milling Co., the  Spokane-Boundary Co., the Morrison,  ���the Royal Victoria, etc., all possessing,  valuable mining property but idle,  some from want of capital, some from  timid or incapable ownership, some  from legal or other complications.  A few companies which are' not here  enumerated and which have made  Greenwood headquarters never had  any merit and were presumably designed as stock-broking concerns.  These for the most part were promoted by non-residents." Greenwood, in  itself, has for the greater part always  been' a conservative mining camp.  Greenwood people have maintained an  aveision for the exploitation of merit-  less mines. "Whether this has "been  because of honest motives or from'business sagacity may not be said, but the  iiQiLcema.insl..._and_ because it is a fact  with opportunity unavailed by cTfpital  Ore veins and ore bodies, and-partly  developed claims yet remains ��� for sale'  or bond on favorable terms, which if  in Colorado, or Utah or. Nevada would  be quickly possessed by capital with  courage. The Boundary has not developed the habit of courageous mining. Por while in the states named  capital will follow a knife-'ulade seam  a thousand feet into the hills looking  for what is reluctant often to reveal  itself, here.pay ore is asked for from  the grass roots.  Within four miles of a railroad and  not oyer seven miles from Greenwood  for example, the Big Copper with  doubtless the best showing of any undeveloped Copper property in British  Columbia* is waiting to be sought by  competent Capital. But for the great  part the capital that strays this way  is timid as a deer of the hills.  The fine, climate, the good wat*:r, the  facility of transportation, the magnitude of the deposits do not seem to  appeal to it. Boundary Creek is too  tame a name to conjure with. Had  the district been called Oven Valley or  Death's resort, had air been oppressive  and water bad, had access there to been  available only to those who court long  laborious itrails, the riches of the districts [would -be employing ten thousand men where today only two thousand find employment. The tourist  may enjoy Pullman cars and first-class  hotels but the mining man seems to  pine for the pack horse and the log-  cabin.  Por pure stock-jobbing schemes this  maybe a wise thing, for then they  who confide their money to friends for  investment may for a long time be  kept in ignorance of the facts.. For  the men however who invest their own  money or who hold that of their friends  as a sacred trust the Boundary ought  to be a most inviting field.  With this apparent handicap however of great deposits>of cheaply mined  and /cheaply smelted ore in a most  heathful climate with ready means of  access and cheap transportation the  Boundary record is beginning to make  an impressive showing. Thanks to a  few interpid intelligent men a good  beginning has been made. Six years  measure the history of the Boundary's  genuine development and yet in 1905  the output was 965,529 tons of ore being  56 per cent of the entire output of the  Province. And fhe 1906 record will  nearly 1,500,000 tons from present ap-  perance.  LOCAL  theGreenwood mining field has a good  reputation where known. That the  field and its merits are not more widely  known is doubtless largely due to the  very conservatism of her people.

Brock his Capable Assistant  Shows Him the Big Mines of  the Boundary.  Mr. A. P. Low, the recently appointed director Of the geological survey  arrived in Grsenwood "Wednesday from  Phoenix. ��� Mr. Low under the able  guidance of Mr. R. W. Brock is making  a hurried trip through Southern British  Columbia with the principal object of  becoming acquainted with the mining  men in order to obtain from them suggestions as to improvement and extensions of the survey work' in the  several important mining centers of  this portion of the province. He has  visited the coal camps of the Crow's  Nest where rapid extensions are being  made at all the mines to supply the increasing demands for coal and coke.  From there he came to Rossland visiting the principal mines and the smelting works a'. Trail and was deeply impressed -with' the extensive works and  -rm-proved conditions of the mines there.  A return was made to Nelson where  the important changes on the Hall  Mines sicelter was inspected, after  which the Slocan country was run  through from Kaslo to Slocan City.  A number of properties worked by  leases are doing well. The discovery  of the vein at depth on the Rambler-  Cariboo, which was visited, will no  doubt have a" V good effect upon'  other properties and will stimulate  deep prospecting. "  From the Slocan the trip was con-  tined to the Boundary district, with a  visit to the Grand Forks, smelter, and  to the extensive mines of Phoenix  where Messrs. Low and Brock were the  guests of Mr. Biesel of the Snowshoe.  Mr. Low is greatly impressed with  the extent of the mineralized territory,  its richness, the wonderful amount of  miring development in such new districts and the bright outlook everywhere of stability and increased prosperity in mining.  The grand a*rid beautiful scenery of  the lake country he believes if properly  advertised would  attract  thousand of  tourists who now go to Colorado andT  other parts ot the west possessing much  inferior attractions. The number and  size of the lumber mills were a surprise  but astonishment was expressed at the  lax manner in which fire protection is  carried out, with the loss of a large  proportion of one of the most valuable  assets of the province, and as the fires  are always close to civilization the cost  of lumber is increased owing to the  greater distance of transport to the  mills, while the smoke nuisance will  ict as a great deterrant to visitors.  Until this visit Mr. Low with common eastern ignorance was under the  impression that fruit ranching was  confined to the few favoured spots on  the coast and had no idea of its extent  and value in the beautiful valleys of  the interior.  From Greenwood Mr. Brock returns  to Ross'and to complete the important  work there upon which he has been  engaged during the past and present  season On the way he will revisit  Franklin camp, which has had considerable development since he surveyed it six years ago.  Mr. Low left for the Similkameen on  Thursday to become acquainted with  that section and to inspect the work of  Mr. Camsell who is makiug a geological survey of the district. ' Passing  through the Nicola yalley the railway  will be reached and taken to the coast  where if time will permit a hurried  trip will be made northward with Mr.  LeRoy who i.s geologically examining  the coast section.  The reason of so much haste on the  present trip, is that Mr. Low is due in  the city of Mexico on the 10th of September, to attend the International  Congress of Geology which includes in  (Continued on last page.) x*m?aaxxi*>a}*m,  ^M-^.7j����u^^aTiESEas^sss  '���-  ���'���-;" V      S!|  BOUNDARY   GREEK TIMES,  Boundary Creek Times  Issued ���vcrv Triday  IIV  THR  Boundary Creek Priuting and Publishing  Co., I/IMITHI*),  Duncan Ross Pkksident  H. 0.

FRIDAY AUCUST 17 I WO  TWO GOOD MEN  ways of. the Board of Licence  Commissioners of Grand Forks  are inscrutable to tbe average  mortal, but uo doubt all their  acts are in accordance with the  public interests aud uot iu. the  interests of particular individuals,  vistti ntr  DIVIDENDS  An ag-gressive department of  mines at Ottawa will do much in  developing the natural resources  of this country. It is a very encouraging- sign to see A. P. Low  the director of the Geological  survey and his assistant "R. W.  Brock visiting the important mining sections of the west. Mr.  Low is a new man in the important position which he now holds  but his work in the frozen north  for the Dominion stamps him as  a man who does things, and it is  bright aggressive men that the  department needs. Mr. Brock is  no stranger to the Boundary or  British Columbia. He was here  in 1S97 studying the Geological  formation of this district and  those who know something of  his careful conscentious painstaking work are not slow in extending their congratulations upon the fact that his services have  been permanently secured for the  department.  In these growing times people  will forgive mistakes iu live men  who are not afraid to direct their  energies to making the resources  of this country better known.  Messrs. Low arid Brock are the  stamp of men the country needs  and with a staff of such men there  need not be much anxiety about  the success of the new depart-  of mines.  PUBLIC "SPIRITED" BOAKD  During the recent sitting of  the Board of Licence Commissioners for the Grand Forks  rlectoral district a dozen or more  licences  were  granted   for  road  -houses-along--the-Notth-Fork=of  Kettle river to Franklin camp,  a distance of less than fifty miles.  The board was evidently deter-*-  tnined that no one connected with  the construction of the North  Fork road would be denied an  opportunity of procuring bad  liquor along the route. Notwithstanding the dictum of Hon.  Chas. Wilson while that distinguished statesman was attorney-  general, the board took a position  in accordance with their expert  knowledge and precedent in this  district. The learned ex-attorney-  general held that it would be  sound policy to discourage opening up grog shops in the vicinity  of railway construction. In this  opinion he was upheld by railway contractors and others who  have had experience in such matters. The Board of Licence Commissioners in Grand Forks district realizing the necessity of  keeping railway navvies filled  with whiskey and the necessity cf  encouraging crime aud rowdyism  have been pleased to disregard  the advice of attorney-general  and others who are anxious for  the maintenance of law aud  order. The public should have  everything that money enn buy  anywhere between Grand Forks  and Franklin. Anywhere beyond  Franklin the utmost care must be  'exercised in doing everything  possible to keep the travelling  public   strictly   temperate.    The  The payment of another regular quarterly dividend amounting to $405,000 dollars by the  Granby company will do much  towards convincing capital that  the low grade mines of the  Boundary are a safe and sure  investment. Smaller and higher  grade mines may temporarily  give quicker returns but the  mines which regularly pay dividends on a basis of 12 per cent  per annum on a capitalization of  513.500,000 is good enough for  the most finnicky investor of  money. What the Granby is  doing to dav other companies will  be doing in the near futnre, The  B. C. Copper company and the  Dominion Copper company are  making every effort to improve  the smelting- facilities aud when  this is done dividends are sure to  follow, They have the ore aud  the values and at the present  pi ice of copper dividends are a  certainty.' -  In this connection it is interesting to note that it is only a  little over nine years since Jay P.  Graves came to Greenwood for  the purpose of commencing development work on the Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides mines.  There were no railways in the  district and but very little encouragement of any kind for the  investor of capital. Mr. Graves  was seen by a Times representative upon his arrival in Greenwood iu June, 1907, aud his  statements appear very modest  indeed when the remarkable  strides made since then are considered. Under the caption. "'Old  Ironsides aud Knob Hill" the  following appears in the Boundary Creek Times of June 19th,  1897:  Mr J. P. Graves, the well  Spokane mining man who successfully  organized in the East two companies  to take over and develop the Old Ironsides and the Knob Hill, in Greenwood  camp, arrived from Spokane on Wednesday .ind spent several days on both  claims. Mr. Graves was accompanied  by Mr. White, the founder of White's  camp..Whileat _the_.01d_ Ixoiisides and  the coast he was enthusiastic about the future of  Canada.  Referring to Canada's relations with  the United States, he said he had no  thought that Canada.should ever be allied to the States. (Applause.) He  said he preferred Canadian institutions.  There was room on the continent for  two nations. (Hear, hear.) Some people  he said, seemed to think on the other  hand that Canada should look on the  States as a hostile nation.  It was impossible to eliminate the  fact that as neighbors the interests of  Canada and United States were closely  allied. It was fortunate that on this  continent there were two nations speaking the same language, rather than  having beside the Dominion a nation of  Hindoos or people alien in   every  way.  He emphasised the need of closer relations between the two countries. He  foind in Calgary that Americans were  doing* more than any other .people to  develop Alberta. Canada should con ���  graUilate herself that the tide has  turned.  "I am not afraid of the Americanization of Canada," he said. "There will  be no comfortable position here for  Americans unless they link their  future with Canada."  In closing- he asked theiw to take a  look with him to the future. In the  first place the population forty or fifty  years from now would be 40,000,000 or  50,000,000. The revenue S300,000,000  or 8400,000,000. Alberta and Saskatchewan will be more populous and  wealthier than Ontario, Winnipeg  larger than Montreal or Toronto.  In 1SS4 Mr. Longley said Joseph  Howe prophesied that there would be  those who would live to hear the steam  whistle in the passes of the Rockies  and take a trip across the continent.  That day had long passed. The predictions ,he made of the future were  even more likely to come true.

The news thai has  already beeu received has been sufficiently encouraging to induce mine  owners to begin the work of developing*  their properties, and the assurance  that a railway will be commenced at  an early date will be the means of securing the expstiiliture of a largo  amount of mouev in order that mine***  may be placed on a shipping basis.

In fact, when a manufacturer receives a communication asking- for  wholesale prices written on paper  which has not printed headings, and  does not disclose that the inquirer is a  legitimate dealer, he is pretty apt to  decline to quote wholesale prices without further investigation���and ninety-  nine times out of a hundred his suspicions tire justified.  In his own  interest  every   dealer  in  groceries should have decent, business  like stationery, wHchwill   convey the  information   that  he is dealer in groc-  ^^erjes,   andV any other lines he may be  engaged in retailing. If he "desirelo  use postal cards, then he should have  his business card printed on itiem also  ���not necessarilly so much matter as  would be on a letterhead, but enough  to show who he is and what his business is.  So much for tlie necessity of the  case; . now for the advertising feature  of it:  Business stationery can be made to  do quite as effective work as a trademark or a eupy-righted brand. Many  concerns, after having: selected a design for their letterhead, use it ou  all their stationary,including billheads,  statements, order blanks, etc. Assuming that an attractive design or style  has been adoped, its value will be en  hanced by persistent and continu.il use.  Of course, as in all other advertising,  those which are most skrilcing without  being glaring or offensive to the artis-  itc sense are most effective.���Ex.  Stomach Troubles and Constipation-  No one can reasonably hope for good  digestion when the bowels are constipated. Mr. Chas. Baldwin, of Etlwards-  ville, 111., says: "I suffered from  chronic constipation and stomach  troubles for several years, but thanks  to Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver  Tablets am almost cured." Why not  get a package of these tablets and get  well and stay well?

FOREST FIRES
The loss to this province every year
from timber fires is quite considerable
and is one which takes years to recover
from. At this period of the year when
everything is dry and the materials for
a huge conflagration so ready to hand,
the necessity for stringent precautions
ag-ainst the spread of fire among the
timber in the district will be obvious
to everyone. Carelessnei-s on the part
of travellers and others may lead to
consequences that might become v«ry
serious. A lighted match, a half
smoked cigar or the ashes from a pipe
may become the origin of a fire which
might easily prove disastrous to life,
not to mention the damage to the
standing timber and buildings. Al
ready, this year, there nas been one or
two disastrous fires through part* of the
finest timber in this district, though
happil}' no other damage was done.
Settlers throughout the district will
find it to their advantage to help in
every way to check the outbreak of
these fires and to notify the authorities
at once when thej' have knowledge of
one, and it will also be beneficial if
they will see that the .precautions
which are uecessi.ry under the Bnsh
Fires Act in clearing brush ore observed, and that this clearing is done at
the time of year when the spreading of
such a fire can be easily checked. In
another column we give a synopsis of
the Act with regard to this. A bush
fire or forer.t lire is in many ways a
more serious . m matter than a prairie
fire, the latter ma}' be stamped out
after it has once started, but if either
of the former get a firm hold, very
little can be done but allow them to
burn out. As this matter of good timber is one of the district's most profitable and necessar}' resources, it is with
pleasure we note that the provincial
government have seen fit to appoint a
fire warden to look after this matter,
and it is hoped that settlers in the district will combine in their efforts with
him to prevent the outbreak of fires
which would soon lessen the amount of
available timber in the district.—Nicola Herald.

Acute attacks of colic and diarrhoea

never been known to fail, even in the
most severe and danprerous cases and

Progress and development are terms
closely ideniifiedl with life in the West. In
a new country people are working daily
for the upbuilding of town, city and dis*'
trict, and for the improvementof the con-*
ditions under which men and women are
called upon to live. Every act of daily life
that tends to bettering one's surroundings
makes directly or indirectly for the im-*-
provement of society generally. In all this
the local newspaper plays an important
part, Among its local readers it stimulates
an increasing interest in their home city,
keeping them posted on all local happen*-
ings, and becomes a welcome weekly
messenger, bearing bright and welcome
tidings. Anion y its outside readers it
forms a valuable advertising medium
making known the merits, advantages and
prospects of the city and attracting thither
citizens who want employment, business
firms looking for locations, and capitalists
seeking investments, In the Upbuilding
. of a town, city or district the local paper
is an important factor.

its ful[ and complete share in the upbuild/

most thoroughly and satisfactorily the
Times must have the support and coopera/

As a'result of the efforts that have already
been put forth, we believe -that an increase
interest is already being taken in its news
columns, We have evidences of this from
the fact that the subscr.ipiion list is already
growing; the street sales are increasing
weekly and the news dealers find more
demand for each succeeding issue, This is
a satisfactory condition of affairs that acts
in two ways, It increases the revenue of
the circulation department and it makes the
paper a first-class advertising medium for
local business men,
In handling local advertising every effort
if put forth to protect the Greenwood mer/
chant. The local page is reserved for them
and foreign advertising has been repeatedly
refused because the advertising manager
refused to disturb the positions held by local
advertisers,    ?

FRUIT  Maxwell Smith, Dominion Fruit Inspector recently returned from a trip  through the interior. To a News-Advertiser reporter he said:  "The crop this., season will be good  in patches," "this being the result of  the late spring frost, which did more  or less damage, though not serious.  In some districts the crop will De full  and the quality all though will be of  the usual standard. The slight damage  by the frost will just about offset the  increase in fruitbearing acreage,  which will make output about 'the  same as last year. The best crop of  pears I saw on my trip was in the orchard of Mr, T. W. Stirling, of Kelowna.  His entire orchard will yield a probable  average of eleven- tons the acre, a ton  more to the acre than last year.  "In the Similkameen, at Keremeos.  Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon there  are big increase in the fruit acreage,  and a4arge=number-o��4rees,have-been.  planted this year. These will not bf-f  included in the fruit bearing acreage  for couple of years yet. The Boundary  and Kootenay districts are also forging  ahead and a great deal of interest is  being taken in fruit growing there.  "This trip has confirned me in the  belief that it is unsafe for any man to  express the opinion as to ^which is the.  best fruit growing districts in British  Columbia. There are so many good  sections, all possessing peculiar advantages, with, of cour-se, some disadvantages, that it is extremely difficult to  select one as far surpassing others,  "I am more than ever impressed  with the feasibility of the project of  untilizing the waters iu large streams  and lakes for irrigation purposes.  This.could be carried out by means of  pumping stations at a comparative  moderate outlay. A good scheme  would be the establishment by the Government of powerful pumping plants  on a barge on a body of water like  Okanogan lake, and other lakes, which  plant could be moved from place to  place aud large reservoirs on the hillsides, above tablelands could be tilled.  There is no estimating the amount of  land which this would render available  for cultivation, for there are many  thousands <jf acres which cannot be  reached in the ordinary way from  streams yet which are well adopted  for fruit growing purposes. The cost  to the Government would not be an  insuperable difficulty, ami re-payment  could be spread over a term of years."

H. COSGROVE, Sec. and Manager,  519 First Ave., SPOKANE, Wash.  I  I  1  I  I  KILLED AT T0R0DA  Walter   Waterland   Shot    by    Mrs-  Getty at Her Ranch.  Walter Waterland was shot and  killed by Mrs. Getty at hei ranch on.  Toroda Creex in the State of Washington on Friday last. Particulars leading- up to the tragedy were brought out  at the inquest held by Corner Manly of  Republic. It appears that Waterland  had been-drinking- heavily and leaving  Ferry where he conducted the Palace  hotel, he started to walk to Frank  Gilg-'s ranch on Toro*la creek where he  intended to remain a few days to sober  ' up.  Mrs. Getty testified at the inquest  at the inquest that Waterland came to  the ranch in tl.e morn ing and borrowed  fishing- tackle; some time later he came  running up tlie path, pointing a shot-  g-un. Mrs. Getty, a friend, her mother  and two children were alone in the  house. She asked Waterland what he  wanted. He said : "Open the door  and I will show you."  Mrs. Gettv fired through the door to  scare him Waterland went around  the house. Mrs. Getty ordered him  away and fired through the house  again, when Waterland came back to  the window. Mrs. Getty warned Jiitn,  and then shot him through the left  breast. Mrs. Getty then disarmed him  and ordered him away. He walked 200  feet and died under a tree.  The corner's jury brought in a verdict of deat from a gun tired by Mrs.  Getty but attaching no blame. It is  not likely that any further action will  be taken.  Waterland came to Greenwood in the  boom days and built the Miner's hotel  but meeting with business reverses he  went to the other side and ran saloons  in various railway towns. He had no  relatives in the west but two nieces  reside in New York.    He was buried at  the wagons. When Rock Creek hill  was reached, the men all clambered  into the wagon on one side thus upsetting it. The Austrian's neck was  broken aud the. Italian wasso badly  injured that he cannot recover. He  was taken to the railway hospital at  Midway. None of the other men were  seriously injured. ...        '-..,  Corner Black went out and investigated tbe accident but after- getting  particulars he did not consider an inquest was necessary.  " Make Hay While the Sun Shines."  There is a lesson in the work of the  thrifty farmer. He knows that th.*  bright sunshine may last but a dav,  and he prepares for the showers which  are so liable to follow. So it should  be with every household. Dysentery,  diarrhoea and choler��. morons may  attack some member of the home without warning. Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which  is the best known medicine for these  diseases, should always be kept at  hand, as immediate treatment is neces  saty, aud delay may prove fatal.

FATAL ACCIDENT  A serious accident occurred ou Rock  Creek hill Sunday morning when an  Austrian named Moyk Cogic was killed and an Italian fatally injured.  These unfortunates and a number of  fellow laborers were coming to Midway from Pat Hughes railway camp.  The work having been completed tliree  four-horse teams were hauling the  men's effects to Midway. There were  25 or 30 men with each rig. Going up  hill they would jump out and walk and  going down hill   they   would   pile  into  its membership all the prominent  geologists of the world. The congress  meets every three years and it is hopsd  that the meeting for 1912 will be secured for Canada, as a meeting of such a  body of eminent scientists would undoubtedly be followed b3r heavy investments of foreign capital in mining properties throughout the Dominion. Mr.  Low states that the change which has  lately taken place and which 'gives the  control of the geological survey to the  lT67i7~MFrTe in"pi chitftf^v i I Tu TTdiJu bted ly *  be of great benefit to the mining com  muuity. Mr. Templeman takes a  personal interest iu the work of the  survey and wishes to make its operations of greater practical value. Up  to the present the survey has been associated with the Department, of the  Interior and could not receive the consideration it deserved and which it will  receive now. With the creation next  session of a portfolio of mines under  the control of a minister from the mining proviuce of British Columbia it is  expected that a much larger sum will  be granted for work in this province  with a consequent increase in its extent  and alTectiveness.  *>  &  ^son nrotj.  e  >.

Hawthornthwaite   Was   Asked Some  Hard Questions in Vancouver.  J. Ii. Hawthornthwaite was asked  some decidedly putinent questions at  his meeting in Vancouver by Geo. T.  Kane a laboring man. By a clever  arrangement of 18 questions Kane  practically showed up the peculiar  course of the socialist leader.  Hawthornthwaite's replies were any  thin-:; but Frank. He made apologres  for himself, sneered at South African  veterans and finally became abusive  as he did at the up-country meetings.  Below arc the questions asked:  1. I.s it not true that you were pro- !  pared to support the government in giv- ]  ing 51,600,000 to the C. P. K. for building the Nicola branch, thatcoiCemplat-  eci sttial being frustrated by the pattio-  tic spirit of Mr. Shatford and Mr. Mac-  gowan; said road being now builtwith-  ont a bonus?  2. Why did you put up such a desperate argument in favor of and vote  for the 800,000 acre land grant with  perpetual exemption from taxation  alienated from the C. P. R.  3. Is it not true that your vote and  influence would have saved this 800,000  acres of  land to the people?  4. Did you use your influence to have  he government tax the B C. Southern  lands, which ought to pay taxes and  are not now doing so?  5. Did you not state from the platform-tliat labor unions are and always  will be a failure, one, either, or both?  6. When you voted to whitewash the  government on the"Kaien Island scandalous transaction whereby the Andersons, so largely profited, were you not  aware that three South African veteran  and ten of their substitutes had scrip  filed thereon in advance of Anderson's  information of the existence of said  Kaien Island?  7. Do you think it right that these  veterans should be dispossesed iu such  a manner?  8. Do you think that auy member of  the cabinet profited by this nefarious  deal?  9. Did you state from the platforn  during your recent tour that the South  African veterans were not worthy of  being.shown consideration-and that it  was not patriotism that inspired them  to enlist? And if not, What did you  say in reference to said veterans?  10. Was there uot a comoact between j'ouself and McBride "or his cabinet'' or "some member" or members  thereof, to the extent that you were to  have a free hand in the house, but under no considerations were you to allow  the government to meet defeat if you  could in any way help it? If not: What  understanding was there between yon  and the government relative lo keeping  them in power.  11. Did you not refuse to answer  questions or at least some questions  "when at Fernie recently," from some  workingmen, at either your meeting or  at annual convention of miners, then  being held there?  ^l-2.=---Did-you^i>ot-r-ef-use=Mr.=J..=A.=Mac*L-_  Donald the privilege of discussing your  record iu the parliament when you were  at Rossland recently? If not. Did not  your chairman so refuse?  13. Were not those bills which interest labor, actually passed before you  had occasion to vote on the 800,000-acre  land steal?  14. Was not the bill to reduce the deposits required of canidates from $200  to S100 actually passed some 10 or 11  da}rs before you voted for the 800,000-  acre land grant?  15. Did you introduce or attempt to  introduce any measure during the last  session having for its object the keeping of Asiatics out of B. C.?  1C. Why did vou vote against the bill  you fought ao hard for, said bill having  for its object the allowing of certain  classes of logs to be exported without  the imposition of prohibitive royalties  thereon?  17. Would it uot put the government  out of business if you had voted for that*  bill? o  18. Cau you blame the workingman  from classing- you as a conservative  when you hid the chance to force any  measure you saw fit through the house?  And should the conservatives have refits d to support you on such measures,  you could have voted them out and  thereby have caused another election,  the results of which could be no worse,  with every chance of a better government being returned?
