Skylsrk Mine  The Winnipeg Free Press re '  eently seat a correspondent into  the Boundary. He has beeu sending a series of interesting letters  to bis paper. Below is given a  part of tbe article dealing with  Greenwood and its industries:  Greenwood, June 15.-The  country to which the reader was  introduced in a previous article is  an area marked by a distinct topographical formation. Following the Cadadian Pacific railway  .route, you enter it at the valley  of Grand Forks, whence the Kettle river, after throwing off a  brauch to the north, crosses the  international border; and you  come out at Midway, where the  river, having returned from its  excursion into Washington, flows  through a sleek and peaceful  valley, whose soft outlines are as  smooth as the surface of a billiard table and a balm to sore eyes.  In this description an impression  is given that the river runs with  the westward, trend of the railway, but it should be borne in  mind that tbe opposite is the  case. Grand Forks is lower than  Midway. From the former city  the Kettle parallels the United  States border to Cascade, where,  for the second and last time, it  crosses over into Washington to  join the Columbia.  There are extensive fruit lands  at both Midway and Grand Forks.  To the north of each place there  is great mineral wealth, which  will soon be tapped by railway  communication; and in the intervening country (where a few big  mountain monsters have wandered by mistake among smaller  fry) are groups of copper-gold  mines in active operation. Into  a low grade district have also  "stfayed-a~~huruber" of high-grade  mines, such as the Skylark and  Providence, the latter being  among the dividend-paying undertakings of the Boundary country.  The   B.   G.   Copper   company,  who have   a   smelter  at Greenwood,   and   mines at  Deadwood  and Summit camps, together with  oilier properties iu  the state of  Washington,   is  the   second big  producer of copper, their smelter  receipts of ore from January L to  June 9 amounting to 112,280 tons,  as compared with 220,553 treated  at Granby, and 60,513 at the Dominion Copper company's works,  Boundary Falls. ��  The Mother lode mine, which  is at Deadwood, three miles from  Greenwood, with which it is connected by means of a spur track  from the  Canadian  Pacific  rail  way, is second only to the Granby  mine at Phoenix. The latter,  however, is a great de;il more extensive. Last week's shipments  of ore illustrate this forcibly.  While the Granby's output of ore  was 12,621 under adverse conditions, the Mother lode was only  4,400 tons under, perhaps, easier  circumstances,   the   B.   C.   com-  to the fore iu actively developing  their property.  IN THE MOTHER I.ODE.  . The writer paid a flying visit  to the Mother Lode, receiving  every courtesy from the consulting engineer, Mr. Frederick Keffer, who has been with the com-  patiy from its inception, having  carried out the initial development.  The first thing at the camp to  attract your notice is the number  of danger boards, mentioning the  signals which warn people of the  tiines and occasions of blasting  and bulldozing, When the glory  hole or quarry was,not as deep as  it is at present, there were fatalities, the writer was informed,  and pieces were knocked ol'l the  houses below by fragments of  hurtling rock. The workings are  very similar to those of the  Granby. On the surface there is  a deep quarry, where the huge  deposits of copper pyrites are being mined in wholesale fashion,  the crest of the hill being literally  Granby mine were also located.  The B. C. company were equally  Smelter of Dominion Copper Company  thoroughly up-to-date, and, iu  common with the Granby at  Grand Forks, turns out a 99 per  cent copper blister. There are  three furnaces, each having a ca-  pacit}T of 650 to 700 tons a day.  The furnaces are exceptionally  well arranged. On one side the  slag is run into pots, which, being on wheels, on rails, are taken  British Columbia Copper Company's Smelter  Mother Lode Mine  pan}''s smelter not having been  closed through want of coke, as  was the Granby's during the recent coal strike.    .  The Mother 'Lode was the first  claim to be staked. This took  place in May, 1S91, aud two  months after the Old Ironsides  and tbe Knob Hill claims of the  ?8fcs*  aSS  r^.<*.*J-;t.tf.ilt>  i Cr '<��r i > ;-���"** fS^T*  SI.VG TRAIN BEING ril,r,KD AT CHE8NWOOU SIIKI.Tfc.K  eaten away. The ore is shovelled through chutes into a tunnel, whence it is hauled over tram  lines to the main four-compartment shaft (having two skips  with a capacity of five tons, a  cage for the men, and a manway  or ladderway), and raised by the  500 horse power hoist to the surface, passed through a crusher,  and thence transferred to the bins  for loading, by gravitation, into  the railway cars.  There  are over  four miles of  underground   workings,  and   the  main shaft is now  down a depth  of 475 feet. The tunnels are well  constructed, affording easycircu-i  jlation  of air  and equally   facile,  j locomotion.    The  bodies  of ore.  j which are being  reached  subter-  I raneously, are richer than   those  I of the glory hole, and increasing  ! quantity of the lower  deposits is  I being taken out.    Close upon 81,-  (000,000   worth of  ore  has  been  mined since 1901.  A MODERN  SMELTER.  The smelter at  Greenwood  is  by an electric motor to the dump  for tipping. Each of the vessels  has a separate motor, which,  whentonuected with the current,  automatically turns the pot, from  which the molten slag pours down  the embankment. The matte is  released on the opposite side of  the furnaces, where the converter  stands are situated; and the vessels are easily picked up by the  traveling crane and their contents  poured into the converters, whose  mouths are lowered to receive it.  There is little else worthy of  remark. The company own, as  well as the Mother Lode and the  smelter, the Oro Denorc, the Emma aud the B. C. mines at Summit; the Napoleou, Washington  and Lone Star, across tbe border;  and the Jumbo and other claims  at Summit, which it is intended  to develop this summer.  ANOTHER GREAT MINING CO.  The third great mining corporation in the Boundary country is  the Dominion Copper Co., who  have a smelter at Boundary Falls,  and own the Brooklyn, Idaho aud  Rawhide, at Phoenix; the Sun3et  and Morrison at Deadwood; the  Mountain Rose, at Summit; and  the Athelstan, at Wellington.  The Brooklyn and Rawhide are  their chief properties. The former is connected with the Idaho,  through whose shaft much of the  ore of the Brooklyn will in the  future be taken out, improvements having just been tqade  which render this possible. The  company's smelter is being furnished with a third furnace,which  will increase the capacity of the  works considerably.  Both the Dominion and B. C.  companies are under excellent  management. Improvements have  been made out of current receipts,  and their properties are now in  such a state that they will shortly  come into the field of dividend-  paying concerns.  When it is mentioned that the  copper, gold and other values do  not average $6 per ton of ore, it  will be realized, by the general  public^that there" has"tefbe much"  economy in handling and treating it. In truth, the placing- of  the mining of the copper sulphide deposits of the country on  a profit paying basis is a triumph  of economy, to which mechanical  ingenuity has contributed an essential part.  The 12 per cent, which the  Granby Consolidated is able to  pay, will probably be attained by  the other companies. But the  good results of the entrenchment  of this industry, behind the firm  walls of careful finance, is not  represented in dividends, but in  the   existence   of   a   prosperous  community, who. as wage-earners, are the best paid in the whole  of the Dominion.

Lfl.BEL>  -FRIDAY, JttN.EJ28-19(VL  PROVINCIAL SUBSIDIES  Conservative newspapers are  jubilant because the words "final  and unalterable" have been eliminated by the Imperial parliament  from the amendments to the British North American act, and Sir  Wilfrid Laurier is charged with  a sinister motive iu having these  words inserted. The imperial  legislation was based on resolutions passed by the Dominion parliament on March 25th of this  year, and these resolutions were  exactly those adopted by the conference of provincial premiers at  Uuebec in 1887. Here is the wording of the initial resolution  passed at the  Quebec conference:  "That this conference is of opinion  that the basis for the final and unalterable si  "But in 1902 another conference took  place, also in Quebec. At that conference the provinces represented were  Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick,  Prince Edward Island and Manitoba.  Onario and British Columbia were not  represented, not beause they were not  in sympathy with the objects of the  conference, but for other reasons. The  province of Ontario signified its adherence to the resolutions immediately  afterwards, and British Columbia also  gave its assent to them, though claiming-special treatment for itself. The  resolutions adopted by that conference  were identical with those which had  been adopted-at the conference in 1887,  with one exception only, that a further  allowance was claimed with respect to  criminal justice. The resolution on  this subject adopted by the conference  of 1902 was as foi lows.���  " 'Resolved,' that in addition to the  foregoing resolution, the Dominion  government be requested to 'consider  the matterof thecostof administration  of criminal justice conjointly with the  other matters submitted, and in addition to the amounts that may be allowed to the provinces under the claims  above set forth, to a^yard to each an  amount for that purpose commensurate  with the expense necessary to be made  in that regard.'  "The resolutions adopted at the conference of 1902 were submitted to us,  but we considered it advisable not to  take anycaction upon them, but to invite the provinces to a conference at |  Ottawa with the Dominion government,  where we could hear the reasons which  might be advanced in support of the  resolutions and the views which might  be presented against, them. This conference took place in October last."  During all these years the  "words"-' 'fiual^and-^unalterable���  were in .the resolutions, and  although these resolutions were  the basis of consideration at every  conference, neither Premier McBride nor any of his^predecessors  made any objection to- them. It  was not until the astute legal  mind of J. A. Macdonald drew  his attention to this wording in  the legislature last session did  Premier McBride notice them. If  these words are of any real import why didn't Mr. McBride object to them at the conference of  provincial premiers in Ottawa  last fall when he was itching for  something to kick about?  A CHANGE OF POLICY  The worst element iu the Conservative party has prevailed,  against its leader  and  the Whit-  Curious Case at Kingston  While attending to her household duties Mrs. A. Harrison, Place-de-Armes,  Kingston (Ont.), struck her ankle  against a projection which inflicted a  cut. She paid little attention to the  wound at the time,*but in a few days it  became swollen and very painful. A  medical man was consulted, and-it was  then found that the dye from her"  stocking, and had got into the wound  and set up blood poison. Then began  a trying period of pain,', which, had it  uot been for Zam-Buk, might not even  yet have been ended. Mrs. Harrison  says: "The doctor ordered certain  treatment, which I followed out; but  the wound got no better, and refused  to heal. It was most; painful, and  sometimes.I could hardly bear to walk.  I was almost in despair when a friend  advised me to try Zam-Buk. It soon  reduced the swelling and inflammation,  and the pain���so acute before- got.less  and less until the ankle was quite easy.  Then the wound began to heal, and a  little more perseverance resulted in a  complete cure."  Zam-Buk draws the pain and the  poison from a wound atthe same'time.  It heals ulcers, chafing sores, sore feet,  bad legs and varicose ulcers. It cures  insect stings, sunburn/summer rashes,  and heat spots;, while as a cure for  chronic wounds, eczema, prairie itch,  ringworm, scalp sores.and sores due to  blood poison, it is absolutely .without  equal. All stores and-druggists sell at  fifty cents, or post free from the Zam-  Buk Co., Toronto, for price.  in order td be with the crowd, some  would forsake tlieir best friend pud  ignore the saciedness of any bond.  Some day the winds are going to shift,  and these deluded hearts will ' find  themselves woefully in the lurch.  I know some saints who pray and believe in*His blessed keeping, and then  m ike a dive for the storm cellar every  lime the clouds have a little fracas.  c Some, for the sake of a few pennies,  or the sheer chance of keeping in Ihe  lime light, would uot hesitate to heap  tieir calumnies on a whole community.  Life is responsiveness���that's certain. It is said that the shrill scream  of the locomotive, the rumble of tin:  cars, the rattle of the wagons, the  ceaseless whirr of industry, the constant tramp on the pivement���all  sound in the world of nature i.s in the  key of F. There is a common note,  and there is a common chord in every  human heart. It lies motionless, responsive only in the key of F\ The  man whose hand is deft enough to  smile that chord will at once become  the idol of- his kind.  CANADA'S BONANZA  The Australian flings his boomerang  far out into the air. He expects it to  make its circuit and fall again at his  feet. So it is with every act, good or  bad as the case may be, a strange fate  orders that they shall return to the  heart of/ him who started .them on their  journey. A kind word���aud what  makes its* shudder the more���an evil  act completes the circuit and turns  again t'o the soul whence they started.  Thus shall we have our reward for  every deed, whether good or bad.  To Employers of Labor:  Are you conversant with the Workmen's Compensation  Act."

For the past four  months J.A.Osborne, proprietor of the Fort  Francis  Times, has been exploiting  the  north  country around Hudson's Bay on some  mysterious errand.     During  the trip  (he and the guides with him made some  1800 miles by canoe north of the Height  of   Land.      Between    Winnipeg    and  Moose Factory'they ran 42 rapids and  made  17 portages.    There  they got a  boat from the Hudson's Bay company's  factor and sailed across the west coast  of Hudson's  Bay  to Big  Vi hale bay,  the only Hudson's Bay post on the east  side of the bay,   the  factor being the  only~-white   marK     ITrom~there-tffyy  journeyed 300 miles  north   and  found  the remnants of the Lady Head, which  foundered on the Gaskett shoals some  three years   ago.   The   pieces of the  vessel  they  picked  up were the only  remnants which have ever been found.  The Eskimo, Mr. Osborne states, are  rapidly dying off  and  many  of  them  are following the trek of  the  reindeer  to Dabrador, whose   migration the late  Leonidas   Hubbard   went   up   to   see.  Regarding   the   navigability    of   the  Hudson's Bay, to  which  several  railways are now being  built from points  in western Canada, Mr. Osborne stated  that while away he met  Captain   Ford  of    the     Hudson's     Bay     company's  steamer Discovery, who has sailed the  great inland sea for the  past  18 years,  and he is of the opinion  that   there is  absolutely  no   danger   in   navigating  the bay for at least five  months of the  year.    He if also  of the  opinion   that  when the Hudson's Bay route is opened  it will carry*  practically  all  the traillc  from   western  Canada  to  Europe and  will prove a far cheaper means of transportation, especially on farm products.  The country  itself is  exceptionally  wealthy in all  kinds of minerals, and  when  opened  up  will prove to be the  most valuable portion of the Dominion.  The bay itself is teeming with  white-  iish, cod,   salmon  and speckled trout.  The southern and  eastern  portions of  the coast line are sovered  with  heavy  timber,   which   will   be  very   valuable  with   proper  transportation   facilities.  All along  the  southern   shores  of the  bay is a veritable sportsman's paradise,  wild fowl of all   descriptions  covering  the  sloughs  and  lakes   by thousauds.  After thoroughly looking into the possibilities of this far northern country,  Mr. Osborne is of the opinion it is one  of the richest countries  on  earth, and  within   a  very   few  years  will   be the  bonanza of Canada.  - House,'pigri and all exterior and  and interior painting and decor  atiug* promptly done.  25  Send in your* spring orders.

No one realizes this important fact more than Pabst.  In the great Pabst Brewery at Milwaukee, everything is  as peat and clean as .in your own kitchen. Every grain of  barley is washed and scoured before it is made into malt.  Even the air in which the malt is grown is washed by being  drawn through fourteen zinc screens, oyer each of which  flows-a constant stream of pure water..  The great shining copper brew-kettles are washed and  sterilized before each brew of  eer   of  Quality  From the time the beer is brewed until it is delivered to your home  it never comes in contact with the atmosphere nor with human hands.  Before it is bottled, Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer is forced through wood  fiber filters.    The bottles arc thoroughly cleaned, thru filled and pasteurized.'  Pabst cleanliness, like Pabst purity, cannot be excelled.  When ordering beer, ask for Pabst Blue Ribbon.  Made     by     Pabst     at     Milwaukee  And bottled only at the Brewery.

He  has lately been planting potatoes  between the rows of trees with  an up-to-date potatoe planter by  which over five acres of potatoes  can be planted in a day. This  70 acres will very shortly be  fenced iu as soon as the lumber  can be put on the ground.  Some lumber has been dumped  down by the government for tlie  repair of the Ingram bridge,  which was injured and partly  broken down by the late Hoods,  and the inhabitants are anxious l!  to know how loug- it will take to  complete the work, as the bridge  being out of repair, is causing  considerable inconvenience to  everyone in the Kettle valley.

The less money a mm wishes to  spend on his clothes the more import  ant it is that he should give careful  thought to every little detail. A garment which must be worn for a whole  season must be right or it carries with  it discontent whenever donned.  In the web of cloth no man can tell  exactly how the suit will fit his individ  uality when made up. To get the  right effect one must wear Semi-ready  garments. They are made to the  finished-to-ordcr stage, and a man can  try a suit or overcoat on and see just  how its tone and expression suits his  individuality. This effect is only possible in the Semi-ready garment, and  is impossible to produce in any but this  tailoring system.- There is only one  "Semi-ready." Sewn on the pocket is  the trade mark label.  ��� P. W. George & Co. will be pleased  to show you how what "Semi-Ready"  tailoring profits the wearer.  ��� _^, <���  CITY COUNCIL  At the meeting of the city  council Monday evening Mayor  Bunting and Aldermen Desrosiers,  Nelson Sullivan were present.

During the fiscal year  of the Providence 1,374 tons were  mine"!, giving in value a total of  $1.17,058.44; and up to then $38,-  000 had been paid out in dividends on a capital of $200,000.  The Strathmore and Elkhorn are  in the same vicinity, while between Greenwood and -Phoenix  are the Sl-rylark, Crescent and  Tip Top. This does not exhaust  the list. These narrow- high  grade veins are essentially poor  men s mines, and, when worked  by incorporated companies, carry  ouly a modest capital. There  are, probably, about 200 men employed on them, whereas eight  times as many are engaged at the  low grade copper mines.  At the horizon of the blende or zinc  sulphide ores in the upper Mississippi  valley, the amount of pyrite and marcasite becomes at places -so abundant  that the ore is more valuable for its  sulphur than its zinc content. These  mixed ores have in Tecent yeais been  largely shipped to Mineral Point, Wis.,  where they are roasted, to manufacture  sulphuric acid.  A mineral oil to be a good lubricant  should have'the following characteristics: - The least viscosity consistent  withe pressure, to be sustained; the  ability to form thick films; readiness  in forming films over metal surfaces,  and power to resist rupture; a flashing  temperature sufficiently high to avoid  loss bv evavoration, varying consistency, gritnming, etc.  The materials used for glass sand in  central United States are mainly  bedded sandstones, and a complete  process of preparation includes quarrying, breaking, crushing and grinding into component grains, screening,  washing, draining, drying, and final  screeningto various sizes. Some beds  of sandstones are so loose, and friable  that they: can be reduced by a strong  hydraulic jet; some producers dispense  with washing their sand, others do not  dry it. Washing improves the quality  of sand of the highest grade.  Messrs. James. M.'Mellis and Frank  R.

Subscribe For The Times, $2  "Cog mineral is 'the term given by  miners to large crystals of galena;  while small crstals, especially when  disseminated through the ruck,- are  known as "dice mineral." Where  galena fills a narrow fissure it rarely  shows individual crystal form and is  known as "sheet mineral."  In the electrolytic refining of copper  at the works of the United States Metals Refining company, at Chrome,  N. J., the anodes are left in the tanks  for 28 days, and the cathodes 14 days.  Eventually the treatment for the cathodes, which -weigh about 300 pounds,  will require only 2 days, and the anodes  30 days.
