SOME   CRITICISMS   MADE  Properties Being- Offered at Reasonable Prices on Working  Bonds.  Alex Robinson returned from the  Similkameen this week, where he had  been for the past two months. In  conversation with a reporter he gave  the following-information in reference  to that promising district:  . " The Similkameen country is slowly  but surely gaining the attention of  of mining men. At the present time  experts representing several big concerns are examining properties scattered all the way from Krugur mountain to points twenty miles bevond  Princeton. While the whole section of  country mentioned is well worth inspection as a field for mining investments. The country adjacent to  Princeton and that portion between  Keremeos and Twenty Mile creeks is  particularly worthy of attention. It is  on the range between these two latter  creeks that the Nickel Plate mine is  located. Lying east and north of this  is a vast mineralized section that in  the next few years will in all probability make the Boundary take a second  place in tonnage production. Near  the Nickel Plate, on- the Twenty Mile  creek slope, is the Kingston group,  .which was bought for $65;000 and upon  which development work is now being  carried on. On the Fairy Queen group,  recently bonded for a large amount,  and in which some Greenwood men are  heavily interested. South of these are  the groups owned by T. J. Marks ".nd  Paul Broadhagen. South again on  Sixteen Mile is the Oregon group,  owned by Hedley men, which gives  promise of outdoing the Granby in  size as much as it does in value.  "The pivotal point of interest of  this section, from a mining point of  view is Riordan mountain and the district immediately adjacent thereto.  Here are^ situated "some of the most  promising claims in the entire Similkameen country, and it is here that almost daily representatives of mining  companies can be met sampling the  ore  that  has  been   exposed   by   open  cutsrshafts=and^ttmnejsrwith-~a^view-  of acquiring a  bond  on   some of the  properties.     Last   week   a'deal   was  consummated    whereby    two   groups  owned by McKinnon Bros  of Hedley,  MeLean  of Keremeos  and  other parties,passed into the hands of a. mining  syndicate, and  several  other deals are  pending which  if satisfactorily   concluded   will    make    this   one   of   the  busiestmiuing sections in the province.  The ore in most cases is similar to that  found in the big mines  of the Boundary.    The exceptions   are   the  claims  owned by  Webster  on   Fifteen  Mile,  the Marks and Broadhagen   properties  and   the Nickel   Plate and Sunnyside,  where   the   ore   can   be   handled    by  stamps and the. tailings cyanided. The  ore  from  claims  known as tlie Nickel  Plate group are  being  handled in this  way,  and  from   the  amount  of work  done   are    perhaps    the   best   known  properties in the Similkameen.    While  the mine is no doubt  a  bonanza, it is  doubtful if it  has  been  a  good advertisement for the district, owing to the  enormous  expense   that  the   management evidently   considered   necessary  in its development.    The  ore  is  conveyed in 2-ton cars by  electric  motors  to the brink  of  the  mountain,   a  distance of  oue  and   a   half  miles,  and  transferred   to   the   mill    by   gravity  tramway   in   5-ton   skips.      It  is   not  [ easily apparent  why   this  was  neces-  | sary.    There is a splendid mill site ini-  j mediately beside  the  mine, and water  | could   easily  be secured   from   a  lake  ��� three miles away.    For   some reason  I the compressor is  installed at Hedley,  | two and  a half  miles from the mine,  ! and the cost of  freighting  and laying  ; a six inch pipe line upthe mountain, to  ' say mothivig   of   the  purchase   price,  must have been   a  heavy  item  of  ex- **  penditure.  "The system of mining followed is  in some respects an imitation of the  Boundary methods. There are two  glory holes, in addition to the underground workings. The mine employs,  all told, about seventy men, but as a  40-stamp mill handles its entire production, it can be easily understood  that the management is fortumate in  having a high-grade property to deal  with.  "The ore on some of the claims  owned by the company is base and is  .a smelting proposition, but no develop-  ment work is being done on any of "���  them, nor anything else to indicate the  erection of the smelter, the site for  which the company struggled so hard  to obtain. The land granted for that  purpose is now a magnificant ranch,  planted partly in fruit trees and partly  in garden, the produce from the latter  being,used to supply the mine boarding house. A fine residence for the  manager adorns another part ot the  " smelter site." Water for irrigation  purposes is 'brought iroiS Twenty  Mile creek, and the smelter has resolved itself into a beautiful ranch,  whicn is a credit to the owner, and  which indicates the man's natural  avocation, for no matter how one may  question the manager's methods of  mining, his abilities for high class *  farming are beyond dispute.  " There is one error regarding the  Similkameen which can stand correction. It has been reported by irresponsible persons that no work has  been done in the country and that  prospectors hold their claims for impossible prices. Both these statements  are wrong. The latter especially is an  utter absurdity, for claims can be se- .  cured there on working bonds that in  any other country would command a -'  substantial cash payment, The claim  owners there realize that they have to  alio'w. generous'��� terms on -bonds T..in  order to induce capital to take, hold,  and in no" camp in British Columbia  are there such liberal terms given as  there are at the present time in the -  Similkameen.  " Hedley itself is growing steadily,  stores and hotels are going up rapidly,  and it bids fair to be the center of the  Similkameen country. The advent of  the railroad is eagerly looked forward  to, and is all that is necessary to start  the various camps on the way to being  the greatest mining district in British .  Columbia."

It is reported that work will shortly  be resumed on  the Carmi, West Fork.  J. Fuller, formerly with the Russell-  Law-Caulfield Co., returned to the city  this week.  Mrs. E. B. Dill returned Wednesday  from -a month's outing on the West  Fork, much improved in health.  Ed. A. Hain. of Hain & Co., Midway, was a visitor in the city yesterday, and says there is not a vacant  house in that town.  S. Stingley returned from Montreal  yesterday, and leaves today for Revelstoke, having been transferred to the  main line.  Thos. McAulay came in from the  West Fork yesterday. He reports all  the properties showing up well with  development. Business is picking up  in Beaverdell.  A large number of people are daily  arriving in Midway, with the object of  engaging in business when railway  construction commences on the Great  Northern and Midway and Vernon.  The right of way for the latter is now  being purchased.  f BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.   H.   HALLET <  Barrister, Solicitor,  Notary Public.  Cable Address :      hallktt."

Now it is held that as a  matter of fact it is uot sectiou 176  at all that provides the penalties; this is done by section 175,  and all that 176 does is to state  the manner in which the penalty  is to be recovered. Sub-section  5 deals with the " actual offender," the person who sells the  liquor, and the same mistake exactly is made in sub-section 4.  These two sub-sections, the most  important ones dealing- with, the  imposing- of penalties for unlawful sale of liquor, are thus, he  contends, invalid, and all bylaws  made under them are also useless.���Ex.  The Vancouver Province is  "warm" over the passage of the  V., V. & E. bill. The people  most interested would have beeu  much warmer had the bill not  passed. However, there is no  use of calling people "liars."  At best it is poor reasoning. The  member   forr Yale-Cariboo   was  over an area of about three square  miles. One variety of cinnabar is  bright transparent red, and another a  dark opaque red, with which antimony  i.s almost invariably associated in small  quantities. Native mercury is sometimes found with antimonial ore. The  ore..pickers, mostly lads, women and  children, produce from 10 to 15 pounds  of select ore each, assaying- one to two  per cent, mercury, which is the customary amount gathered in a day's  work. In working- the mines during*  the rainy season, the surface water as  it accumulates in the lower workings  is forked by means of bamboo or  wooden chain pumps, similar to those  used for irrigation purposes. Timbering is unnecessary, (he ground being  compact and holding up well, even in  the largest working. Ventilation is  poor, but workmen give it no attention  because they do not wish to incur expense. The ore is mined in the ordinary way oy drilling holes, seldom  beyond IS inches deep, with three-  fourths inch iron drills pointed at both  ends with steel. The holes a-re charged  with two or three ounces of domestic  gunpowder, and the slow burning fuse  is a conical shaped piece of paper. An  average shot breaks about 100 to 200.  pounds of rock.

HALF   MILLION DOLLARS  Divided Annually Between Senators  and Members of the House  of Commons-  VOL. 9..N0.46. JULY 21.1905  TOWN TOPICS  The resolutions increasing sessional  indemnity of members passed the  house of commons this week unanimously. The tendency of the'resolution is rather of a Socialistic character,  for if it does not mean an equal division of the nation s wealth among-the  whole people, it certainly means an  equal division of a nice slice of the  nations wealth among thos*: nearest  the public chest. So to those of a  socialistic turn of mind the resolution  of Minister of Justice Fitzpatrick must  appear a step in the rig-ht direction.  Besides members of the house and  senat, -a number of others are benefitted  by this initial move in the direction of  Socialism. The premier's salary was  raised, tlie leader , of the opposition,  is given a salary, some of the judg-es  get a slice, ex-cabinet ministers are  again allowed to get their hands in the  strong box, and in tact the "very best"  people in both parties are to be adequately recompensed for their services  to the country. It is pleasing to note  that the resolution was ''adopted unanimously," and that "congratulatory  speeches- were made by- members on  both sides, of the house."  The resolutions provided that members juvd senators shall receive $20 a  day up to 30,days attendance, and for  more than 30 days, members and senators will receive a lump sum of $2,500.  In future, the sessions of both the  house and senate will be at least 31  days. The premier's salary is to be  , increased and the leader of the opposition is to receive a salaay of $7,000.  There will be deducted-from the indemnity of each member and senator  $15 a day for every day he is absent  ' from his seat. Actual moving ex-:  peuses will only be paid hereafter,  mileage being abolished. Members  and senators must furnish a statement  at the close of each session setting  forth ���their expenses in traveling to  and from parliament and also the  number of days of absence.. These  statements will be received by the ac-  countant of the house of commons in  the form of affidavits.  In addition to the-foregoing provisions, it is provided that cabinet ministers vvlio have served live years at  the head of a department will receive  an annuity equal to one half of the  salary received when in office. Ainoug  the immediate beneficiaries under this  provision will be the following:  Sir Charles  Tupper, Bart., a-father  ^of-cou federation i=^-=i=======================^-  A The stages are daily crowded with  passengers for points west. -  The street sprinkler might profitably  be used this warm weather.  Nat Darling, traveler for the Mainland and British I/ion cigars, was in  the city Tuesday.  Ernest Mills left yesterday morning  for a trip to Nanaimo. He will be  away a couple of weeks.  Mail is now delivered from the train  at Anaconda, instead of as"formerly  through the Greenwood office.  Gold Commissioner Kirkup of Rossland was in the district this week attending to his duties as assessor.  C. Scott Galloway is in Nelson this  week on business connected with the  Fremont and Strathmore companies.  Bob Yuill returned this week from  Hardy mountain where was doing assessment work on the Rabbit's Paw  group.  W. Y. Williams, formerly superintendent for the Granby company, was.  in the city yesterday, returning from  a trip to Osoyoos.  Geo. F. Williams, for-a number of  years in business here, but now traveling for a Montreal house,.was in the  city Wednesday.  G. A. Evans, publisher of the Grand  Forks Sun, was a caller at the Times  ofiice this week. He had been making  a tour of the Boundary on his wheel.  .*��� Part of the force on the Preston was  laid off Saturday. The full force will  not be put on again until stoping is  commenced. Sinking is at present  being done.  Arthur Wheeler, for the past three  months press correspondent at Greenwood, left yesterday for Victoria,  .where lie has accepted a position on  one of the dailies. Mrs. Wheeler accompanied him.  It is said that there are twelve legal  gentlemen employed on the Providence case now being tried in Nelson.  With a.fair deal the gentlemen should  each get $16,666,667-3, but of course  soma of the big fellows will want that  extra two-third cents.  Arrangements are being made to  give a banquet to Duncan Ross, M. P.,  on his return from Ottawa, This is  in recognition of his services in the  fight for railway competition. The  banquet will be non-political in its  character.  It is not yet definitely settled whether  or not there will be a celebration here  next month on the anniversary of the  organization of Creenwood Miners'  Union. The difficulty here is that  there is no place in which sports can  be held and an entrance fee charged.  Without a good subscription from the  business men of the city the union  could not undertake the celebration.  ' the lakes peculiarly being salt for the  most part, and the waters never reach  the ocean, being absorbed by evaporation or sink into the desert sands.

A Michigan company manufacturing  fifty tons of charcoal iron a day formerly allowed the smoke made in burning the wood to go to waste. Now the  smoke as it is formed is delivered into  stills charged with lime and stir  rounded with cold water, tlie result of  the condensation being first, acetate of , ^  lime; second, alcohol; third, tai; ^ |j  fourth, gas, which is consumed undtr  the boilers. A thousand cords of wood  are converted into charcoal daily,  yielding 2,800,000 cubic feet of smoke,  from which are obtained 12.000 pounds  of acetate of lime, 200 gallons of alcohol and 25 pounds of tar.

The areas of greatest depression are' nearest the borders and the  highest elevation near the center. The  highest mountain range is East Humboldt, one peak of which is over 11,000  feet in height. Volcanic rocks form  or conceal the original rocks of many  of these ranges.

T' BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES  PRESS COMMENT.  fr Mining- camps and the people in  them |who are given to bemoaning- the  dullness of the times, but -who make  no effort to strike out in new lines and  ��o keep up with the best traditions of  the West, must be content to drop  down and out of the struggle for existence.���Prospector.  That Mr. Foster should take a pessimistic view of the affairs of Canada is  what might reasonably be expected.  Mr. Foster has been convinced that  the Dominion is heading- straight for  bankruptcy ever since 1896. It was in  that year, it will be remembered, that  Mr. Foster ceased to be finance minister. But Canada has been doing  pretty well since then, and will continue to go ahead even though Mr.  Foster may be compelled to grace the  opposition benches for some years to  come.���Winnipeg Tribune.  Nearly one hundred Canadian families, with household goods valued at  many thousands of dollars, passed  through.Windsor, Ont., bound for the  United States during the past year.  The loss of these people to Canada is  serious, even if their places are being  filled up uy emigrants from other  countries. We should try as hard to  keep our people ar home as we do to  induce foreigners to come to Canada,  for they are of our own kin and of  more value in building up the Dominion than the hords of Molokins,  Galicians and Doukhobors pouring-  into the West.���Victoria Tiines.  The new premium list of the Spokane Insterstate Fair will be ��� out this  week. It is much 'larger and more  comprehensive this year than it has  ever been before, and the prize lists  and classifications have been thoroughly revised. Many new classes  have also been added, and the management hope that all the changes will  be found to be real improvements.  This list is distributed, as generally as  possible by mail, and any one-not receiving a copy within the next few  days will be sent one on-application to  Robt. H. Cosgrove, No. 519 First avenue, Spokane, Wash.  American newspapers have a remarkable record of lawlessness to deal  with. There are . railroad companies  prosecuted for illegal rate making, beef [packers indicted for  violations of the anti-trust laws, a  United States senator convicted" of  crime in connection with land frauds,  former postal officials sett to jail for  participation in dishonest contracts,  a judge on trial charged with cheating-  the government, and a great financial  institution in the throes' of reorganiza-  after a career of reckless disregard of  sacred obligations. It is not surprising that, in the midst of all this, trade  union officials should be in trouble for  extortion from employers.���Toronto  Globe.  How potent and dangerous is the  lobbying of the corporation lawysrs at  Ottawa has been demonstrated in the  -narrow^~a^k^with=whicli'"th^"V7rV7  & E. railway bill escaped defeat. This  is what is known as the Jim Hill load.  It is anxious to build into British Columbia with its own money. This is,  of course, a strange offer to makib Canadians, to want to build a railway for  the development of the country, without dipping the corporation hand deep  into the public chest. The introduction of the road would necessarily disturb the C. P. R. monopoly in British  Columbia, but even so, has it not been  found a desirable thing for tlie country  to disturb this monopoly in other  provinces. The whole of the Conservative party, with the exception of one  member, allowed itself to be lobbied  into a position of opposition to this  bill and in favor of monopoly. Every  trick was resorted to defeat the bill.���  Winnipeg Voice.  On the subject of the court reporting  difficulty, referred to in these columns  the other day, a correspondent suggests that barristers and witnesses  might speak into phonograph receivers  and that the typewriting might "be  done from these instruments. This  would rentier the court reporter unnecessary. But the phonograph has  been tried and without success. The  trouble with it is that it takes too much  when it works all right, but that it will  not work unless the speaker is close to  it and there is absolute silence. In the  transcription of the language which  ought to be "cleaned up" as the report  is taken is mixed, and hard to put in  good shape. It must not be forgotten  that the work of the stenographer does  not consist merely of taking down  everything that is iaid, but of putting  everything- that is said into such a  shape that it can be understood.���Mail  and Empire.  ���m% ���  3  a .  SV.  Never in the history of the Boundary has the district had a brighter outlook than today. With the successful ;de>  velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating  at a very small cost, the continued opening up of new high grade properties and their successful and profitabl  operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds and  bigger values, It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte, If you  therefore want to participate in its future prosperity, how is the time to invest both in mines and real estate, For  NINETY DAYS we intend giving you a chance to make a safe and profitable investment.

It is rumored from Rome that the  pope will leave the Vatican for a cooler  resort during the hot weather. The  rumor would not be important were it  ���tot that no pope has left the Vatican  since the papacy was deprived of its  temporal power years ago. By consistently remaining a "prisoner of the  Vatican," Leo XIII, like Pius IX,  maintained a constant protest against  the act of the Kingdom of Italy in  taking over the papal states. If Pius  X goes to a more salubrius summer  resort than the Vatican gardens, he  will tacitly abandon the line of policy  followed by his predecessors. Some  such action on his part, in acknowledgement of irrevocable facts as they  exist in Italy, has been anticipated  ever since his election as pope, and the  expectation has been strengthened by  the new attitude of the papacy that  was manifested during the recent parliamentary elections in Italy.���Winnipeg Free Press,  Apropros of machine work in politics, the premier and his stoker, Hon.  R. F. Green, appear to be keeping  their hands very effectively upon the  lever in the constituency of Alberni.  We doubt whether anyone knows with  certainty when the election will be  brought off in the western constituency. In the meantime arrangements  are being made for the transportation  of those essentials of Toryism called  "pluggers" to the points where  there  will be least possibility of detection.  The two trained workers of the government, the premier and his right-  hand man, the chief commissioner, are  diligently engaged in smoothing the  way for the polliig of bogus votes.  However, the opposition has been furnished with a copy of the plan of campaign, and there is a possibility.of a  flank movement being developed. As  politicians the hon. the premier and  the most hon. the chief commissioner  are intensely practical in their methods. They are in charge of a highly  organized machine? but there is al-  always a chance of the aforesaid machine slipping a cog- or two.���Victoria.  Times.  Auctioneering the reputation of a  professional man may not be conducive to the best interests of the mineral  industry; nor will matching the ve-  iacit3"of experts with contrary views  establish indisputable evidence of the  intrinsic worth of a mine. To the  reputable engineer a challenge to  prove an error of judgmen t of a professional colleague is often an unpleasant task, and there are records  available to show that even an "auditor expert" may err, particularly when  estimating tlie value of ore in a mine.  What jeopardizes the career of a mining company more perhaps is the peculiar managerial policy of directors,  whose heart throbs are the speculative  counters.    Until   the   gambling ofiice  holders repent, shareholders ueed not  **"ook for the salvation of their company. Another iniquity of the promoter-president or director is his proclivity to organize heavily capitalized  subsidiary ~* companies b3r dividing-  land which he acquired in one or more  concessions. What may be expected  from such prodigality is now being  ventilated by the daily press in the  case of a well-known Mexican gold  mine.���Mining World.  MORE PROMOTIONS.  Fox & Ross, stock brokers of Toronto are running the following advertisement in Eastern newspapers:  COPPKK GOLD  MINES.  A. F. Hogue, mining engineer, formerly manager of the Great Broken  Hill mines of Australia, from which  hundreds of million pounds sterling  were taken by its fortunate English  shareholders, reports: The showing  on the King-Edward mines inBottnd-  ary district (about 8 miles from the  Granby Mines, the Mother Lode shipping about twenty thousand tons  weekly) is almost an exact counterpart  of the Broken Hill Mines of Australia.

Il is about on a par with the exaggerated statements by means of which  unscrupulous promoters have  induced  investors to place their money on wildcat schemes and ultimalely anathematize British Columbian Without expressing any opinion on the value of  King Edwayd Mines, we would point  out that if it has to be discounted as  much as the statement that " the  Mother Lode mine is shipping about  twenty thousand tons weekly, it cannot be worth much. Erom the official  returns we find tliat the total shipments of the Mother Lode from commencement to date have been as follows: 1900, 5,340 tons; 1901' 99,034  tons; 1902, 141,326 tons; 1903, 138,079  tons; 1904^174,298 tons; and 1905 to the  30th of June, 89,948 tons���a total of  648,025 tons in six years. Leaving out  1900, when the tonnage was nominal,  this gives an average of 2,770 tons  weekly; or, taking- the present year  alone, 3,460���about one-sixth of the  figure named by Fox & Ross. As a  matter of fact, the celebrated Granby  Mines are only shipping 12,000 tons a  week. These methods of securing investors' money make Lawson's "Frenzied Finance" look cheap.���Nelson  Tribune.

When the system is completed it will  be oiie of the best iu the province,  taking into consideration the number  of people to be "served. For domestic  purposes the waler of Lind creek will  be used altogether, and tho old system  will not be used except in' case of  a break in the new or an extensive  fire. The exhaust or outlet will be at  the old reservoir on Twin creek, as the  reservoir for the new system is so  much higher than that of the old.; In  case of shortage of supply cf water  from any cause, the, shortage will be  supplied automatically from Twin  creek, so there will be sufficient water  at all times for fire protection. -  The new. reservoir is 60x50x12 feet,  and is built of masonry. From the  reservoir to Anaconda there are 3,100  feet of 8-inch. pipe. To "supply Anaconda there are 800 feet of 4-inch ami  2,200 feet of 2-inch pipe. From Anaconda to connect with: the old system.  4,100 feet of 6 inch pipe have been laid.  The hydrant pressure will be 100 lbs.,  using five streams.

Judging from the correspondence  sent to outside papers one would conclude that there had been a strike at  the Greenwood" smelter last week. It  is well known that a strike cannot occur without the sanction of the union  under the jurisdiction of which the  work is being done. It is also well  known that one, or two, or a dozen  men have the righc to quit work if  they choose, and the employer has the  right to discharge one, two, or a dozen  mem. This is a general custom recognized by both emploj'er and union. On  account of a new head feeder being  employed at the smelter last week, a  o  number of the men quit, holding that  the man in line of promotion should  have got the position. This the men  had a right to do, so also had the company the undoubled right to place the  man in the position whom they think  would best serve their interests. These  are the facta. There was no question  of a strike, no dispute between the  union and the company. It was simply  a matter that comes up daily between  employer and employee all over the  world���accepting or rejecting work:  employing or discharging help.  }^rsAi ^      ^^^*^C^^ji^^��^  Clearin  OP-  Toilet papers���special price in quantities���at Smith & McRae's  "'     Buy It Now.
