No. 47  SOCIALISM EXPOSED  Hawthornthwaite's Duplicity Is Fully Revealed.  are  SOLE AGENTS  in this district for  Nobel's Gelignite  TOOL    OF    CAPITALISTS  He Deserts the Laborer and Votes for  C. P R. Land Grant and Kai-en  Island Deal.  Does your Watch need a new Spring,  Crystal, Hand or any other part, or  does it need cleaning or regulating?  If there is something wrong with.it  nniMP    IT  Greenwood  A. Logan & Co.  Official Agents.  Midway  J. H. Hawthornthwaite, the socialist  leader, addressed two meetings  in the  Auditorium on  Monday and Tuesday  evenings last.    On Monday evening he  openly boasted that he had driven J.  A. Macdonald, the Liberal leader, from  the hall.   He aimed to give Mr.   Macdonald credit for having had'the courage to   face   him,   but  in  Greenwood  neither Duncan Ross, M. P., nor J. R.  Brown, M..P. P., were present.   They  were too cowardly to come to a public  meeting and face him on the platform.  Mr. Ross was chairman of the meeting  addressed by Dr.  Kilpatrick and Mr.  Brown was confined to his bed through  illness.   These   facts   were known to  Mr. Hawthornthwaite at the time, but  he couldn't control   his   weakness for  vain   boasting.    On Monday evening  he   dealt   with   theoretical   socialism,  saying nothing particularly new or important.   He announced a meeting on  Tuesday night, when the  political  application  of socialism   as   exemplified  by his own actions in the local legisla-  1 ure. would he fully explained.  \lAs it was announced during  the day  that   both'  Mr.   Ross   and Mr. Brown  would be present, there was a very large  attendance   at  last   Tuesday's   meet-^  ing.    Fred Hazelwood, president of the  local  branch of the Western Federation of Miners, occupied the chair. He  announced that Mr.  Hawthornthwaite  would open  the meeting, Mr-   Brown  would then be given half an hour, Mr.  Ross half an hour, and Mr. Hawthornthwaite would close the meeting.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite, in opening,  told the audience how he was going to  pulverize the two worthies on the platform with him. He told what Conservatives stood for, what Liberals  claimed they siood for; he dealt very  gingerly with his own record on the  question of taxation and treatment ,of  railway corporations, ridiculed Mr.  Brown's record in the local legislature  and urged his audience to send down a  Socialistarepresen.tatiy_eJ:o_suppj^tJnm_^  He   also   charged   Messrs.   Ross   and  Brown with being the representatives  of the capitalistic class.i According to  Mr. Hawthornthwaite VV. B. Mclnnes,  Ralph Smith, J. A.. Macdonald aud  other well known Liberals, were snide  shysters, traitors, etc., etc.  J. R.   Brown,   M.   P. P.,   followed.  Although still  suffering  from illness,  he manfully defended his course in the  house and discussed the K-uen Island,  C. & W.,  B.   C.   Southern  and  other  matters.     He   pointed   out   that  Mr,  Hawthornthwaite openly boasted that  he held  the balance of power  in  the  house.    Did he use that power to force  through the eight hour bill?   He made  McBride swallow himself ou the Settlers'Rights bill.    He forced  the government into exempting the E.  &  N.  belt  from   the   provisions   of   the iniquitous Education acts although other  cities within   other   railway  belts exempt from taxation,   were equally entitled to such exemption, but he never  used  the   slightest   effort to club the  government into passing an eight hour  bill, and then this loud mouthed friend  of labor and apologist for the McBride  government blamed  the Liberals  for  its     non-passage.     Mr.      Hawthornthwaite's record in connection with C  P. R. legislation was also referred to.  Mr. Brown closed amid applause with  an appeal to the people to vote preferably for a liberal government,  but if  not, then   for a straight conservative  government, rather than the Conservative-Socialist   combination    which   is  controlling the destinies of this  province today.  Duncan Ross, M. P., was loudly applauded when   he   rose  to speak.    He  congratulated the audience upon  having seen and heard the greatest political curiosity in this country.    Robert  Louis      Stevenson     in    the   wildest  stretches   of   his   imagination   never  created   a   Dr. Jeykll and Mr.  Hyde  which presented such  sharp contrasts  as   did   this   same J.   H.   Hawthornthwaite.    Last   night   he   entertained  the audience with a travesty on  the  Socialism of   Karl Mark, tonight he  gave them the real Socialism according  to   the   gospel   of   Richard   McBride.  What right had this  man .to say  that  Mr. Brown and the speaker were  representatives   of   the capitalistic class,  when     his     whole   -record'   in     the  local   legislature   since  he  became   a  Socialist leader, showed <*hat lie was  nothing but a man Friday  to Richard  McBride, and a tool of the Canadian  Pacific Railway.    He was not without  his   cunning   when   he   addressed   a  Greenwood audience. He ridiculed Dick  McBride's curly locks,  suggested  that  some of them should be pulled.    This  was done to deceive the workingmen,  but when   this   same brazen, boastful  J. H, Hawthornthwaite got into the  legislature he was as meek is a lamb  and voted as McBride decided. (Laughter and cheers.)  Mr. Ross, in the brief time at his disposal, did not intend to discuss theoretical Socialism, but he did intend to  give,some^illustra.tions^of^the_,Social^  ism practiced by J. H. Hawthornthwaite  in  the. local legislature.    He  ummer  CLOSES SATURDAY, JULY 21st.  Only two  days  more  in  which   to   buy staple   and fashionable goods at  greatly reduced prices.

Remember this sale  Closes Saturday evening.  first instanced the case of the Midway  & Vernon Railway, a project in which  local people were interested, and upon  whose success much depended from a  local point of view. It is a project  which has been mercilessly pursued by  the C. P. R.. which has almost succeeded in ruining it and those connected with it. In this nefarious work  this powerful corporation has been  aided and abettel by the McBride government and J. H. Hawthornthwaite.  The speaker pointed out that some  time ago the local people succeeded in  inducing Eastern capitalists to become  interested in the enterprise of a syndicate headed by one Loss, took  a six months' option on the  charter, paying the sum of 310,000  therefor. Loss and his associates  said aud did nothing until the six  months had almost expired, when he  coolly informed the Midway & Vernon  people that he had no inteutiou of exercising the option aud in a few days  he bobs up serenely with a fat C. P. R.  contract to build the Nicola Railway.  After Loss threw up his optiou, the  Midway & Vernon people had within  20 days to tile plans of the entire route  from Midway to Vernon with the minister of railways at Ottawa, and to  make the necessary payments  otf capi-  Ottawa who had some influence with  the    government,    and   by   possibly  stretching the strict letter of the law  a six months'  extension of   time was  secured.   Mr. Smailes, who had charge  of the Midway & Vernon  affairs, then  succeeded   in   interesting   New   York  capital in the enterprise.   Work was  commenced, the bonds were being sold  through Kuhn, Loeb & Co., and  there  appeared to be nothing  that could interfere with the  final   success of this  project which means so much for the  Boundary  district.     But   there is no  limit   to   Canadian   Pacific ingenuity  when it comes to a matter of knocking  a small   fellow.    In   some mysterious  way Sir Thos. Shaughnessy, the president of the   C.   P.   R.,   received the  information from Capt. R.  G-. Tatlow,  erstwhile    representative   in    British  Columbia    and   present   Minister   of  Finance, that there was a grave doubt  as to the   validity   of the   provincial  subsidy   and   that   in any   event the  subsidy would not be paid without a  reference to the courts.   In an equally  mysterious way Mr. Clouston, the general manager of the Bauk of Montreal,  received   this   information   from   Sir  Thomas.   Equally mysterious was the  method in which the manager of the  Bank of Montreal in New York got  this infotmation and by some mysterious   method,    known   only   to   high  finance, the New  York   people   interested   in   the   Midway &   Vernon  received the startling information  that  they had bought a law  suit with the  Midway & Vernon.   They immediately  wired Mr. Tatlow, who lost no time in  confirming   the   information  so mysteriously  con veved  through * so  many  channels from Sir Thos.  Shaughnessy  down to the New  York  people.   They  were not buying a law  suit in British  Columbia, and they dropped the project,  leaving the men   unpaid;    Mr.  Tatlow  knocked the deal at just.the right time.  Had he waited a  few hours, longer he  would have been  .fighting New .York .  capitalists, not..Robert.Wood and Ralph  Smailes   and   Duncan   Mcintosh   and  other local people, and  the New York  capitalists could then  have easily established their rights in  the courts as  subsequent events   proved.      But  the  C. P.  R.   knew   when   to knock, and  Capt Tatlow gave out his information  at the psychological moment.  The local people did not intend to'  give up, and immediately applied to  the local government and legislature  for such legislation as would'remove  any matter of doubt. Haying friends  of both sides of the house who in-  insisted that these people should have  a square deal, the government was re  luctantly forced to bring in the necessary legislation. Then Mr. J. H.  Jlawthornthw-^^^^o-^ m^his deadly  work in the interests of the C. P. R.  He placed ou the order paper an  amendment thai the act should not  come into full force and effect unless  all wages were paid on or before February 28th, 1906.    He knew  full well  it was   absolu'ely   impossible  for the  local peopleto pay these wages unless  they were given an opportunity  tt refinance the project.    He knew-full well  that under the provisions of the gen-���  eral railway act no Dominion  subsidy-  is   paid   until   all   the   workingmen's  wages is first pros-ided  for.    Knowing  these things, hi: kepi   this amendment,  like the sword of Damocles,  over the  heads of these poor people.   But, what  happened?      Men   like   Price   Ellison  and   Archie   Macdonald   of   Lilloott,  were determined  that the Midway A  Vernon  people were   going   to  get a  square deal despite the opposition of  Mr. McBride aud Capt. Tatlow and Mr.  Hawthornthwaite.    When these worthies found the measure would carry auy  way, they made the best  of it  and let  it   go   through   the   house.    Did   Mr.  Hawthornthwaite   press    his   motion?  No,   he   dropped it  like a  hot potato  when he found it would  not  be effect-^  ive in killing the  bill.    There  was no  concern   for  the   poor   working man  then.   This   is   the   Socialism   which  J.  H.  Hawthornthwaite   practices   in  the   legislature   of   the    Province   of  make tne neccssitii   uurmtuii!

But fortunately for the Midway & Vernon Railway people  they  had  some frie.ids at  ism which he preaches to the working-  men of Greenw< od. (Loud Applause.)

Phoenix today is us well equipped with postal facilities as any  other town of its size in the Dominion of Canada Two years  -ago Phoenix had a daily mail  service by tlie Canadian Pacific  railwa}-: today Pnoenix gets an  additional daily mail by the Great  Northern. Two vears a��-o Phoe-  nix had no custom house; today  Phoenix has a customs and inland revenue officer. Notwithstanding" .what has been done for  Phoenix in the face of an adverse  vote, the Pioneer is continually  fiudiug- fault with the Dominion  government for neglecting Phoe-  nix. It is* now tearing its hair  because the Canadian Pacific railway, for reasons best known to  its officials, refuses to furnish a  direct connection with the tram  from Greenwood at Eholt, aud  consequently the Greenwood mail  does not reach Phoenix the same  day as it is posted. How the Dominion government cau be held  responsible for the acts of the  Canadian Pacific railway company the Phoenix Pioneer alone  knows. There is a board of railway commissioners " to ' regulate  such matters and it would naturally occur to the disinterested  outsider that if the..Pioneer was  as anxious for a remedy as,it is to  have a grievance against the Dominion government, it might  make its kick in the proper  quarter. Asa matter of fact the  controller of the railway mail  service has taken up the matter  with a view to securing a more  prompt mail service between  Greenwood and Phoenix.  If the Pioneer could have a  few^reflectiA^^moments^it^could  readily see that the Dominion  government might weary of its  well doing for Phoenix if the only  reward it is going to secure is  continuous abuse. Phoenix is an  important mining center but during- the last two Years in the mat-  ter of additional postal facilities,  in the matier of securing a customs office, it has received greater  consideration than any other town  in Yale-Cariboo, and for that  matter in the Dominion of Canada.  UNFAIR TACTICS,  A renegade newspaper is always  the bttterest and unfairest in  criticizing its quondom friends.  The Vancouver Province, who,  a short time ago, saw nothing,  but good in R. C. Macpherson,  M. P., has nothing but abuse for  him now. Unbiased observers of  Mr. Macpherson's career as a  public man are not slow to give  him credit for his untiring energy  in the interests of the city of  Vancouver and the province generally. Two sessions ago he was  one of the solid seven who fought  for and secured railway competition in Southern British Columbia  against the combined efforts of  the Canadian Pacific railway and  its newspaper organs. Since  then the Province has lost no Opportunity to villify Mr. Macpherson and the other B. C. members.  It has a new grievance against  Mr. Macpherson. It endeavors  to connect him with the release  of oue Brothier from the penitentiary. Brothier lived off the  earnings of fallen women, and  getting into the clutches of the  law, he was convicted and sentenced to imprisonment. Having  considerable money, he succeeded  iu interesting- Sir Charles Hib-  bert Tupper, an ex-Minister of  Justice, iu securing his pardon.  Representations were made to  Hon.Chas. Fitzpatrick, then Hon.  Minister of Justice. Mr. Fitzpatrick had one weakness. He  was always too anxious to please  his political opponents. He  earned the encomiums of the Conservative press, he escaped the  severe criticisms of Conservative  members in the liouse, but unfortunately, as iu the Brothier  case, this was secured at the expense of political friends aud  party prestige. Had Mr. Fitzpatrick asked for aud secured the  advice of Mr. Macpherson, the  local member, instead of listening to the blandishments of Sir  Chas. Hibbert Tupper, au ex-Minister of Justice, the Liberal par ty  in the west would have been  spared the odium of the Brothier  pardon. It is sometimes dangerous and expensive to be too courteous to politicians of the Sir  Chas. Hibbert Tupper type. The  public interests are sometimes  better served by turning a deaf  ear to their representations, but  how Mi\ Macpherson can be held  responsible for something, of  which he knew nothing-, and to  which his attention had never  been drawn nutil after the mischief was done, the Proviuce 'in  its bitterness alone can tell. . Mr.  Macpherson's responsibility^ is as  great and no greater than that of  every other supporter of the* government.. There are sometimes  some things done for which responsibility must, be assumed by  those who are not directly responsible, but it is unfair for the  Province, in this instance, to endeavor to place all the blame on  Mr. Macpherson's shoulders.  DOG DAYS.  Mongrel dogs are not the only  things which go mad in July  weather. Sometimes newspaper  editors are afflicted. ���*��� The worst  case of "dog days" is that of the  Vancouver World, which is now  wildly suggesting that party  lines should again be abolished  in this proAance. If ever there  was a province which suffered  from the blighting- influence of  hermaphrodite governments it is  British Columbia. The e-ditor of  the World should take a stroll  down to English bay aud plunge  into the ever cold waters of the  sea. It is surely a case of overheating. What is wanted in  British Columbia is a good Liberal government, and this is what  British Columbia will soon have  if newspaper editors, of whom  much is expected, will quit getting rabies in the dog days.  PLAY  FAIR.  The Hedley Gazette, like the  Phoenix Pioneer, is never satisfied so far as the Dominion gov-  eminent and the member for  Yale-Cariboo are concerned. Iu  its issue of July 19th its editor  writes two columns bewailing the  fact that railwav construction  has beeu delayed because the  minister of railways refused to  make a certain order approving  of the plans of the V., V. & E.  into Hedle}-. Possibly the readers of the Gazette might have  been spared this sorrowful Jere-  maid if its editor had known that  the order to which he referred  was made nine days before the  publication of his  article.    The  granting of this order had no.  more to do with delaying railroad  construction in the Similkameen  thau had the editor of the Gazette  with the authorship of the decalogue.  The facts are briefly as follows:  J. W. Stewart, who has. the contract for building the V., V. &  E. from Midway to Molson, also  secured the contract for constructing the road from the International Bouudary line through the  Similkameen valley. An effort  was made to haul in steam shovels, other heaA'-y plaut and all  necessarv supplies from Midway  over Sidley mountain. The contractors soon found out that the  cost of hauling in supplies- by  this route were so heavy that the  pi'ofits from their contract would  be wiped out aud' refused to continue any further work under  such conditions. Thev suggested  Peutiction as a base of supplies,  thus obviating the heavy haul  over Sidley mountain, but for  obvious reasons the Great Northern was not anxious to route supplies "and.' plant flvia Penticton.  It was then decided to defer  further construction into the  Similkameen until the track was  laid to Oroville, when all. supplies would be hauled over the  mountain "by rail. The decision  was arrived at early iu the year  aud was known to the member  for Yale-Cariboo before he., went  east to attend the session of parliament.  Last summer Mr. Keuuedy, the  chief engineer of the V., V. &  E., informed Mr. Ross that his  survey was on the opposite side of  the river from Hedley; that they  couldn't get into the tcwu without interfering with the G. P. R.  if this were done. Mr. Ross told  him to go ahead, aud that he'  would assist him before the minister of railways, and. if necessary, before the railway*- commissioners. The change was made  in the survey and submitted to  the minister of railways for his  approval. As was anticipated,  the C. P. R. violently opposed  the change. Mr. Ross, backed  up by the resolutions of the Hedley Board of., Trade and citizens  generally, made as strong a plea  as he knew how for the town of  Hedley, with the result that Mr.  Emniersou then and there said he  would  give  the necessary  order  Cr*  Cr*  CF*  Cr*  CF*  CF*  CF<  Cr*  CF*  Cr*  CF*  CF*  Cr*  CF*  Q=<  Ct^  CF*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr<  Q^i  Cr*  G**  Cr*  as soon as he secured certainTaxl-  ditional information t not then  available. As soon as this information was received the order  was granted on July 11 th. Keeping iu mind the fact that the decision to defer construction iu the  Similkameen ��� was arrived at  months before the application  was made for the approval of the  amended plaus, the position of  the Gazette becomes absolutely  silly and viciously partizau. It  even went so far as to accuse the  member for Yale-Cariboo of having in some way delayed construction in the Similkameen iu  order to get the Greenwood  branch constructed this summer,  when as a matter of fact the  member for Yale-Cariboo was at  all times in touch with the Similkameen situation and at all  tiines watching the interests of  Hedley.  Did it ever occur to the editor  of the Gazette that in pureh-  local matters, in which there  should be no politics, but. all  should pull together, the member for Yale-Cariboo is deserving  of somewhat kinder treatment  than columns of abuse, particularly when he was at all times,  so far as it was humanly possible,  protecting and promoting the interests of Hedlev and the Simil-  1 ' * '  kameen.

Work started last Monday ori the  Meadowlark claim on which a bond  was secured some weeks ago by R.  Dal y Morkill of Phoenix, for a syndicate of local capitalists. The claim  adjoins the well known Skylark mine  and is a very promising- property. The  bond covers a period of eightet-.u  months and it is the intention of the  bondholders to fully prospect the property. The members of the syndicate  are: Chairman, G. W Rumberger;  secretary-treasurer, M. M. Stephens;  managing committee. G. W. Rumberger, W. J. Porter, J. h. Martin, R. D.  Morkill and J. J. Caulfield Others interested are J. A. Morrin, C. H.

Work started on the Snowshoe this  week also under tho management of  Charles Biesel., Men were put to work  getting the machinery into good si.ape  and otherwise preparing for extensive  operations. Denny Lynch formerly  at the St. IOugene mine, at Moyie, is  the foreman at. this property, and the  present s nail force of men will be  augmented as fast as they cau be utilized to advantage.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  The following table jjr'ives the ore shipments of the Boundary mines for 1TO, 1901, 1902, 1903,        :^  VJ04, 1905 and 1WG, as luporled t'o the Boundary Creek Times:  NATURAL CEMENTS  Natural cements are produced, .by.  burning a clayey'limestone, containing  ��� 15 to 40 per cent of silica, alumina and  iron oxide, without preliminary mixing  and grinding, at a temperature Unit is  usually little, if any, above that of an  ordinary lime kiln. As the burning  mass will not slake if water is poured  upon it. it is necessary to grind it  rather line; after it is ground, if the  resulting powder (natural .'���.ementj be  mixed with water, it" will harden or set"  rapidly, either in the air or under  water. Satisfactory natural cement  materials are widely f'istrjbuted aud of  common occurrence. Hardly a slate is  entirely without limestones sufficiently  clayey to be available for natural  cement '-''manufacture. The sudden rise  of the American Portland cement in-  d ustry, htfwever; has acted to prevent  any,great expansion in the manufacture, of natural cement. Natural  cements vary widely in composition  and consequently are of,varying, industrial '.'importance: It has become  customary to give natural cements  local geographical names,  indicating  , the place ..of their manufacture, as  "Rosendale." "Utica," "Louisville"  aud "Milwaukee." This is especially  appropriate, as the natural cements  made ina given locality have the same  general characteristics, being all made  from the same sedimentrary rock. The  manufacturing methods of a natural  cement plant.are of the simplest kind,  including merely the burning of the  cement rock arid the pulverizing of the  product.!  Slag cement is a by-product of the  blast' furnace and is made by intimately mixing granulated blast furnace slag of proper composition with  slaked lime and reducing this mixture  to a fine powder.  .MINK. -.-     CAMP.

''���A distressinr*; accident occurred last  Friday morning- when Robert Inches  was instantly killed bv a fall from the  top of the Le Roi headwords," says the  Rossland Miner. "The flagstaff on  the top of the headwords: had been  bent" by a recent windstorm, and Mr-  Inches and Alexander Dunlap, assisted  by several others, were instructed to  take it down and replace it with'a new  one. In carrying- out the instructions,  Mr. Inches insisted on going- to the top  of the headworks, while Mr. Dunlap  and those assisting them remained in  1 a portion of the works near the top, tn  order to lower the flagstaff by means  of a rope. Mr, Dunlap offered to go,  but Mr. Inches said he preferred to do  so. A smairrope was to be used but  Mr. Dunlap insisted on a larger one.  This was tied by Mr. Inches around  the portion of the flagstaff which was  to be lowered. A pully was fastened  to the lower section of the staff, which  projects immediately ab >ve the roof.  A rope was rieved through this pully,  and when everything was ready Mr.  Dunlap asked Mr. Inches if he thought  Whkn W. M.

"'It will hold foi ever,'replied Mr.  Inches.  "Mr. Dunlap and the five or six men  with him began to lower the upyer  portion of the staff, which was 45 or 50  feet in length, while Mr. Inches stood  by on the root* and guided it. Suddenly  the knot on the flagstaff began to  loosen under the strain, and it slipped  vthrough the rope and came down as  lightning, the ball of the staff striking  Mr. Inches with such force that,he was  thrown from the rooF and fell a distance of 90 feet. In his descent he  turned twice in the air and struck ou  the rocks on the east side of the head-  works with his hands outstretched and  his head down. The impact was so  forcible that the face from the month  upward and the front portion of the  skull were crushed like an eyjj shell,  and his brains wer-: -scattered around  where h3 fell.

This week we will take up copper  and its ores. During- the last ten  months the price of copper has been  steatiily rising- and this has caused  considerable interest being- taken in  the Boundary' of good copper properties, and if the copper market continues to be strong it is probable that a  great number of properties will be  opened up within the next six months,  especially up the Norlh Fork of the  Kettle river.  The demand for copper has kept up  with the supply, owing- chiefly to the  great strides being taken in electrical  development, which requires so much  copper. Indeed, if copper went higher  than at present, it would be in danger  of being- partially superseded at any  raite by the newer and lighter metal,  ��� aluminium, for power lines.  Copper is the metal of the Boundary,  and with the increase of capacity and  lower costs of operation of the local  smelters-there is a bright future.  JNext week our article will be ou  "Iron and Its Ores." ' -  Copper was known and mined in  ancient times. Phoenician relics have  been found in the Rio Tin to copper  mine, and it is known that the Romans  got out large values. Copper is one of  our most useful of metals. Without iV  the present high state of efficiency of  electrical appliances could not have  been attained. It is the base of most  of the brass founders' alloys, suclji as  brass, ��� bronfces, arg-entan, etc. Pure  copper is very ductile, and may be  drawn out into very .fine wire. It can  not be well poured into moulds, because  it contracts on cooling very unequally  and does not fill out the moulds. For  casting it is used with zinc, tin, etc.  It has the property of having a high  conductivity for electricity and is  mainly used in electrical work. Copper  is very easily soluble in dilute nitric  acid, but hydrochloric acid hardly acts  upon it. It forms two classes of salts,  the.cuprous and cupric, hence the various colors of copper ores and their  great variety.  '���*'*."    NATIVE CpPPKK. '  .This variety is. found in great abundance around Houghton,. Michigan. It  has a-hardness of 2.5-3 and specific  gravity of 8.8-S.9. Its luster is metallic, color copper-red and streak metallic  shining. It is composed of pure copper, often containing- some silver, bismuth, mercury, etc. It dissolves readily  in nitric acid, producing a deep azure  blue solution svith amm'oni.i. Native  copper occurs in beds and veins accompanying- its various ores, especially  cupriti, malachite and azurite; also  with the sulphides, chalcopyrite, chal-  cosite, etc. It is also often abundant  in the vicinity of dikes of igneous  rocks): also in clay slate and sandstone.

CHALCOPYRITE.  ���So!netimes=called-copper-^pycites,^is.  the most common ore of copper, especially in British Columbia. It has a  metallic luster and its color is a deep  brass yellow, often tarnished. It is  readily distinguished from iron pyrites  by being more easily scratched by a  knife and by its having a deeper yellow  color. This mineral is composed of  copper 34.5 pe>- cent, iron 30 5 per cent,  sulphur 35 per cent, and is a sulphide  of copper and iron. It may or may noi  contain gold or silver. It is soluble in  nitric acid, formmg a green solution  which turns to azure blue*- on adding  ammonia and allowing tlie precipitated  :nt;tal to settle. Chalcopyrite is a  widely disseminated mineral. It occurs  in veins and deposits in gneiss aud  crystalline schists, also in serpentine  rocks, often mix 3d with iron pyrites,  sin-rite, tetrahedrite, etc.. aud some  times with pyrrhotite, with   nickel and  brittle.    It is found  massive  at  Butte (  City, Montana, in Ian e quautities.  TETRAHEDRITE.  Or gray copper ore, has a metallic  luster. Its color is between flint-gray  and iron-black, arid its streak is like  the color inclining to brown and cherry-  red. This mineral is rather brittle aud  con-tains 52.1 per cent of copper, 23.1  per cent sulphur and 24.8 per cent  antimony. It is distinguished by its  form, when crystallized, by its deep  black color on fracture, and brighl  metallic luster. It is much softer than  magnetite and is often associated with  chalcopyrite, pyrite, sphalerite, galend  and various other silver, lead and copper ores.  CUPRITE.  Commonly called red copper ore. It  occurs massive, granular, and sometimes earthj'. Its luster is adamantine  or sub-metallic to earthy, aud its color  red of various shades, particularly  cochineal red, sometimes almost black.  The streak is several shades of brownish red, shining. It resembles hematite, bui i.-> softer, and does not become  magnetic in reducing flame. It is  somewhat like cinnabar but differs in  the color of its streak and also in its  blowpipe reactions. Cuprite is composed of copper 88.8 per cent, oxygen,  1 2 per cent.  MALACHITE.  This mineral is a basic carbonate of  copper and contains 57.4 per cent copper. The luster of its crystals is adamantine inclining to vitreous; of  fibrous varieties, more or less silky.  The color is bright green and streak  pale gresn. It occurs commonly alcng  with other copper ores and as a product  of their alteration. It is distinguished  by its green color and by its efferves-  cecce in*acids.  AZURITE.  Azurite is also a base carbonate of  copper. It contains 55.2 per cent copper but has an azure blue color. Its  luster is vitreous, almost adamantine,  and its streak is blue, slightly lighter  than copper. It also occurs along with  other ores of copper and as a product  of their decomposition.  ���'���' BOND THE RUBY  THE STOCK MARKET  Local Company Secures Another Promising Copper Claim.  The B. C. Copper Co., Ltd., have  secured an eighteen months' working  bond, on the Ruby claini and will  shortly start active-development work.  The Ruby is situated near Bouudary  Falls and is a chalco-pyrite proposition  carrying copper and geld. Considerable development work was done some  years ago and the results then obtained  indicate ihat it will probably develop  into a profitable mine,. .  During the past few months the B.  C. Copper Co. have been remarkably  'active in securing several promising  claims within easy working distance  of their smelter. Among the claims  secured are Oro Denoro, B. C. Copper  and the Lone Star and Washington  groups in the state of Washington.  BAND^CONCERT  The Greenwood band gave a most  successful entertainment in the Auditorium last night. The audience  though not large comfortably filled  the hall and were highly'pleased with  the excellent numbers rendered by the  skilful musicians. Mrs Oliver, Mrs  Frith and Miss Hallett rendered a  vocal trio in a highly acceptable manner and Mis j Bsldon's cello solo was  much enjoyed, Mrs Oliver also rendered a vocal solo. The Misses Hen wood  was to have rendered a vocal duet but  were unable to be oresent much to the  disappointment of the audience.  THE COPPER MARKET  Le Roi Shares Touch a High Mark.  White Bear Sales. ���  Le Roi shares reached the highest  point  in   the last four  months   when  ^1 17s 6d. was quoted a few -day's ago  on the Loudon market. Four months  ago the price was qi oted one shilling  higher, but this week's quotation is  the highest since then. Quite a number consider the shares worth at least  ��2 each, and are not inclined to sell  for less.  A few thousand shares of White  Bear have changed hands during the  past week and the price is 5% cents for  full)- paid up stock. The mine will  resume shipments this week. It will  probably be on a small scale at first.  There have been some fairly large  sales of Sullivan of late. The ptice is  3)4 cents asked and 2% cents bid.

Professor .-Kilpatrick, of Kncx  College, Toronto, delivered a splendid  address before a fairly gooc-sized audience in the- Presbyterian church last  Monday night on the subject, "The  Building of a Nation; Its Problems and  Ideals.'" Duncan Ross, M. P., occupied the chair, and in 'fitting terms  introduced the speaker, who proceeded  at once to deal with his subject in a  comprehensive and exhaustive manner.  He began by pointing out the great  heritage Canada has iu her people,  The Saxon race was rich in the accumulated strength of centuries, reinforced by the many qualities intro-  diu ed in times past by other peoples  who had mixed with them. The so-  called pure races were the weaklings  of the earth; the mixed races were the  rulers of the world today. In the  building of a nation he recognized the  necessity of accumulating wealth, but  he declared that sordid wealth without  the redeeming elements of education  and culture were an abomination anda  menace to any country. '  There was great necessity for more  thorouglTWIl^opttlar'e'dncatitin^HPhe'  people of British Columbia had before  them the opportunity to establish a  system which would make it possible  that every boy and girl receive as good  an education as their capabilities warranted,  In the course, of his address Mr. Kil-  datrick emphasized an important problem in nation building when he referred to the deplorable lack of public  spirit in Western Canada, especially.  He declared that the man who had no  interest in the country or town in  which he lived, beyond the mere money  he was able to accumulate therein, was  unworthy of the protection and privileges its laws and institutions afforded:  Throughout his whole address the  speaker appealed to the best ana highest instincts in human nature and.  decried the prevalence of indifference,  prejudice and ignorance of those elements most important to the building  af a nation. The meeting closed with  "God Save the King;" after wnich  refreshments were served.  <BKHft ���*��$*����#*��#��**��#����##������*�� J*-**-.ftftftftftftftft-ttftftftftftftftftftftft  ��  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ftft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  -ft  ft  ft  4  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ftft  ft  ft  ft  ft  . ft  With Buyers for our  PureSii  We have the El astic Felt or  Pure White Cotton, made in  fancy Satin  Ticking.

T-  Smith  is Prospecting  in the  Yellow-head Pass.  W. T. Smith, one of the pioneers of  tlie Boundary, is off an a prospecting  trip to the Yellowhead pass. A short  time ago Northwest mounted police  followed a fugitive from -justice into  the pass and on the return trip one of  the party discovered some very rich  copper float. The attention of Mr.  McMichael, chief inspector of customs,  was drawn to this specimen. Mr. McMichael is interested in the Big Copper  and other copper mines in the Boundary, and as he therefore knows ricb  copper ore. when he sees it, he persuaded Mr. Smith to go into the pass  and endeavor to locate the ledye  whence the float came. The mision i.s  no new one for "W. T." He has been  a pathfinder in many a camp. He was  one of the first in the Boundary and it  is quite possible that when the history  of Northern British Columbia is written, when several transcontinental  lines of railway find their way through  the Rockies by means of the Yellow-  head pass, he will receive the credit for  having discovered a new and rich mining district adjacent thereto. Mr.  Smith went into the Yellowhead via  Calgary and Edmonton. As the information which he received is necessarily somewhat indefinite, it may take  him some time to discover what he is  seeking.  FIRE ALARM SYSTEM  Steps will be Taken to Install Un-to-  Date Equipment.  At the council meeting held last Monday night Alderman McKae gave notice that he would introduce a bylaw at  the next meeting to appropriate Si,000  from the money borrowed for waterworks purposes to be used for the installation of a new tire alarm system.  The question of puling in an alarm  system to meet the needs of the town  was thoroughly discussed in the council early in the year and it was practically decided that an electric system  should he installed as soon as sufficient money could be spared for the  purpose.  Tiie grade by-law changing the  grade of Kimberly avenue between  Deadwood and Providence street between Copper street anil Kimberley  ave.was adoped and finally passed.  The acting mayor and the city clerk  were authorized lo sign, on behalf of  the city, the agreement between +he  city and C. Scott Galloway releasing  the former from any damages that  may arise from changing the street  grade in front of the latter's residence.  The superintendent of waterworks was  instructed to repair and clean the Twin  creek tank and to make the pernament  intake on Lynn creek without delay-  Aid. Wood asked for two months leave  absence.0 Granted. Council adjourned  to meet in two weeks.  A BIG GRAND STAND  | Re-opened   tinder   nian-  l asrement of Mrs. E. H.���'!

The enlarged grand stand at the  Spokane Interstate fair this year will  accommodate 7,000 people and will  furnish actual seating capacity for at  least 5,000. This means its capacity is  nearly double what it was before. The  grand stand was crowded to its utmost  limits several times last year, and it is  believed tluit with greater accommodations in this respect, the crowds which  ���witness th; races will be much larger  than at any time in the past. Seven  thousand dollars have been expended  in enlarging the grand stand.

SOCIALISM EXPOSED  The land was not then C. P. R. land .  It was Crown land. The C. P. R. had  no more right there than the speaker  but knowing full well what the government and Mr. Hawthornthwaite was  going to do three months> hence, it had  the effrontery in a British province to  send an armed force to drive a rival  railway company from the lands-of the  Crown. Three months i.fter a bill was  introduced in' the local legislature' to  give this land to the Canadian Pacific  Railway, over 800,000 acres of land-  land to which in law and equity it was  not entitled and the valiant promoter  of this rascally legislation was Mr.  J. H. Hawthornthwaite. He did this  ou the plea that workingmen didn't  own the land anyway, therefore the  proper thing to do was to give it to the  C.P.R.' This is the Socialism which  J. H. Hawthornthwaite preachesQin  the legislature of the Province of  British Columbia. It is not the.socialism which he preaches to the people of  Greenwood.    (Applause.)  This same J. H. Hawthornthwaite  was one of the first to support a measure increasing the taxes on the poor  farmers to provide the necessary funds  to support ail emasculated educational  system in this province, but he held up  his liands.in holy horror when it was  suggested thai the three anda half  million' of .acres of ; B. C. Southern  lands, owned by the C. P. R., should  be taxed in accordance wTith tlie expressed conditions under which it was  granted. Tax the poor farmer all you  will, but never, never tax the Canadian  Pacific Railway lands. This is the  Socialism practiced by J. H. Hawthornthwaite in the legislature in the  Proviuce of British Columbia. It iiti't  the Socialism which he preaches to the  workingmen of Greenwood. (Applause.)  Then Mr. Hawthornthwaite is particularly enamored of the Kai-en  Island deal. These lands, were under  reserve against South African':war  script, but there was no reservation  against Mrs. Jimmy Anderson. The  McBride government would grant no  tiat to those who wished to defend  their right in the courts. They placed  A_..ne.w reserve...on    Kai-en    Island  although- the old was valid against  locations. They gave the band of  adventurers (male and female) an op-  portunit}' to exploit lands which were  illegally denied to South African veterans, and J. H. Hawthornthwaite  fully .endorses the whole transaction,  government, adventurers (male and  female), lawyers and all. Nothing in  connection with the Kai-en Island deal  escaped the commendation of this  truly great Socialist leader. This is  the Socialism which he preaches at  Victoria. It isn't the Socialism which  he preaches to the people of Greenwood.    (Applause.)  J. H. Hawthornthwaite is not_ only  the greatest political curiosity in public life today, but he is also the greatest political fakir in provincial politics  today. (Loud applause.) Iu conclusion Mr. Ross stated while many  in the audience were honestly mistaken  in their ideas that��� Socialism was the  true panacea fot present ills, no one  could 'ic deceived by the Socialism of  J. H. Hav\ thornthwaite.  When Mr. Hawthornthwaite rose to  repiy he was furiously angry. He  called Messrs. Brown and Ross "dickie  birds," "ducks," "sucker?." and sev  eral other endearing terms.
