Merriman and J. Kellerschon,  of Duluth, Minn., returned Sunday  from the Similkameen. The gentle-i  men have been in the district for the  past three weelp examining the mines  and prospects of,the Similkameen, and  brought away with them sixteen sacks  of ore for sampling. They left Monday forythe east. '   ,  J. P. Anderson came down "from  Beaverdell on Tuesday. He and his  partner, J. Bell, did somefwork on their  claim, the Highland Fraction, with  good results. A ledge was uncovered  a foot wide, the paystreak being fiv6  or six inches, and an assay tak^n gave  $326.74, principally ra silver. <  R. T. Longly, superintendent of -the  Carmi mine on the West Fork, arrived  in-the city Tuesday and left for Spokane Wednesday, presumably to consult^ with the owner, U. H. Thurston,  "whois afpresent in^that city."- Roy H.  Clark, a mining broker of Spokane, accompanied him.   -  A directors' meeting of the Provi  dence Mining company will be held in  Greenwood on^the 25th inst., at which  plans for the future development will  be brought up and discusse'd. Other  important business will rfeceive the attention of the board.  A letter has been received at this office from John Beuttenmiller, of Stratford, Out., asking about the Baltimore  Copper & Gold Mining company, with  head offices at t,ondon, Ont., and owning mines in Copper camp. The gentleman is a shareholder in the company and can get no information from  the secretary. There is no company of  the name mentioned operating mines/  prospects or wildcats in Copper camp,  and no one here appears to know of a  Baltimore Copper & Gold Mining company ever doing development work in  this district. "The company may have  located ground in Copper camp, but  the only development work done must  Jiave been in the sale of stock to East-  fern people. The writer of the letter  made a mistake in investing in a promotion emanating from "London in  the Bush,'" in the first place, and in  the second placev he should have written to Greenwood before he invested.  The people in the' Boundary country  are only too anxious to expose fake  promotions, owing to the great injury  done to the mining industry. There  are dozens of companies operating in  thei^ Boundary that are good investments. The wildcat companies are invariably organized in the Hast, and do  business there. We hear nothing of  them here, so are unable to warn the  investing- public or expose the promoters. If the people in the East, before  investing, would subscribe to one of  the local papers, they would see from1  time to time references to the-work  being done by ^ the company, if any,  and, as-thc names of ','fake'/ companies do not appear in the local papers  unless they aie domg-sde^elopraent  work, or - have / acquired promising  properties, there is little chance of'mistakes being made by the investing  public. <  John Meyer came down from the  West Fork Wednesday, where v he has  been wording on the. Rambler for the  past six weeks. After crosscutxing  for 106 feet at the 70-foot 'level fora  supposed fault without: encountering  the ore body, work was resumed on the  east and west drifts and the lead was  found in both, trom 18 to 20 inches of  clean ore being uncovered, linking  has, been commenced on a new shaft,  which is down 14 feet in 5 feet of pay  ore. Messrs Nelson and Ratubo, the'  owners, will at once increase the  force on the Rambler. Drifting and  stoping will be carried on in the old  workings, and the new shaft will be  sunk to the 70 foot level and connections madejvith the old shaftjbvdrift^  ing on the ore body for a distance of  about 200 feet. The assay values received yesterday from the new shaft  at 14 feet depth, 316 ounces silver,  value $181.70; east drift, 105.4 ounces,  value S60 60; west drift, 89.2 ounces.  value $51.29. The^e values., were estimated on silver at 51J�� cents an ounce,  and the assays were made by T. F.  Sutherland of Greenwood.

A rich lead 14 inches in width and  carrying free gold has been struck in  surface work commenced on the Twin  this week.  -,���  ���������  Tbe shaft on the Sudbury, near the  Gold Bug, is down nearly fifty feet  in an ore body about three feet in  width.  * ���������__  Five met^are working on the Strathmore and two on the Freemont, with  very satisfactory results in both mines.  It is reported that eastern capitalists  will examine the Elkhorn mine this  month with a vew to purchase it.  The-tunnel on the Golconda in South  Deadwood camp is in about 450 feet.  Why Suffer From Rheumatism ?  Why suffer from rheumatism when  one application of Chamberlain's Pain  Balm will relieve the pain ? The quick  relief which this liniment affords  makes rest and sleep possible, and that  alone is worth many tiines its cost.  .Many who have used it .hoping.only  for a short relief from suffering have  been happily surprised to find that  after a while the relief became permanent. Mrs. V. H. Leggett of Yum  Turn, Tennessee, U. S. A., writes; "I  am a great sufferer from rheumatism,  all over from head to foot, and Chamberlain's Pain Balm is the only thing  that will relieve the pain." For sale  by all druggists.  The Jewel mine in Long Lake is  being unwattered. This will take  about three weeks, as there are, besides the shaft, 1,300 feet of drift* and  stopes to clear of water. It is provable that as soon as the water is taken  out of the mine, the drift will be continued into the Denero Grande, recently bonded by the company from  Mrs. McAarthur and C. J. McArthur.  Long Lake camp carries the richest  ore in the district, and and it has always appeared strange that development has not been continuous, instead  of by fits and starts. This has been  the rule with a large number of the  Old Country companies operating in  B. C. They expend a large sum in  development, and when shipments  should be made and results obtained  for work done, they suddenly quit  and nothing more is heard of them  for years, when they as suddenly appear again and take a catch-as-catch-  can fall out of the property..  The Sally wagon road from the government road to the mine is now completed, and a shipment of ore will probably be made next week, and thereafter regular shipments will be made  from the mine. The force will shortly  be increased to 25 men and work commenced on the No. 2 lead. This lead  is from four to six feet in width of  galena and lies between diorite and  granite.      It   has   been   developed to  some extent by shaft and tunnel, and  prospected throughout the entire length  of the claim by surface crosscuts. By  many the No. 2 is considered the  best lead on the Sally group, although  the principal work has been done on  and better assay values received from  the No. 1' lead. With the completion  of(the wag-on road and development  commenced' on the No. 2, large shipments may be expected from the Sally.  Some very rich ore is being taken,  out of the Last Chance mine in Skylark" camp, principally ruby silver.  The paystreak , is about eighteen  inches wide in a ledge five feet wide'.  Upwards of one thousand feet of development in shaft/ drift and crosscut has been done. First-class ore  averages $200 to the ton, and second*  class from $25j;to $50., Fifty tons of  second-class ore are shipped weekly to  the Boundary Falls smelter. The  values are principally in silver.  Mark Kay will shortly resume development on the Toronto, lying near  the Skylark.   About $1,200 worth of  work has been done on the claim.   Mr.  Kay. hasjseveral times been   offered  $15,000 for .the property on a "wind" ,  bond,   but does not encourage .shoestring  promoters.    He   prefers   continuing development iu a small way K  until some mining man pomes along  with'a business proposition, either'for  cash or a working bond,,with net pro- '  ceeds deposited in a tianfc to meet payments on the bond. -  The new 80-horsepower boiler for the  Providence waa ttakco, up to^the mine  last week and is now in place. Development will in'a few days be resumed,  and it is believed the property will  shortly commence paying dividends  one* more. Those who ar,e ia thej"  ���Jknow" say that a large quantity of  ore has already beeu blocked out. The  strike in the crosscut at the'400-foot  level,'just before the mine closed down,  assures good pay ore at depth.   / '   ,  1 Colonel Weir, of New York, was in  tty? city last week, and went on to the  Similkameen. ,The colonel came to  the Boundary in 1895 and took a bond,  on the Mother Lode in Deadwood camp,  in which property he interested New  York capitalists, the result of which  is"one of the largest shipping mines in  the west. The price paid for the  Mother Lode was $14,000, and over  half a million dollars was spent on de-  velopmcntbefore shipments were made.  3erry ' Dale "cam,e down from���the-  WeBt Fork, Tuesday. He says the  Carmi was unwatered last week and  a thorough inspection of the property  made by Roy H. Clark, of Spokane.  It iB not yet known whether the object  is to purchase the Carmi or Spokane  capitalists to become associated with  E. H. Thurston and increase the plant  and develop more energetically than  heretofore. ���-  The tuanel being driven on the  Seattle mine is now in 190 feet, and  the rock is improving daily The work  is being done by five men vand a steam  drill. A gain of nine feet is made in  the face of the tunnel every forty-  eight hours. This property was recently bonded by W. T. Hunter and  associates, who are sparing neither  men nor money to make it a shipper.���  Grand Forks Sun.  President Hill, of the Great Northern, thought his Michigan iron ore  cars would hold the regulation 50 tons  of Granby ore, but 35 tons is about the  average. It is understood that Mr.  Hill proposes to haul 50 tons per car,  and has accordingly ordered new iron  ore dumpB. that will hold 50 tons of  Boundary ore.���Pioneer. ��� '."'-���.  The Foulds ��brothers are getting  along nicely on the tunnel of the Highland Queen, near Anaconda, and expect to tap the lead this week. As  soon aB the ��� lead is encountered drifting will be commenced, and regular  shipments made from the mine. A  sample from the lead has been sent to  Ottawa for analysis.  A deal is now pending for the purchase of the Texas, one of the high-  grade claims lying east of the Providence. It is said the amount named in  the option is $10,000, and the purchasers are Toronto people.

Roberts of Silverton will be  pleased to hear of his acqittal at  the assizes in Nelson- last week  on the charge of shooting through1  a window. There was really no  evidence to convict, merely a suspicion that he might have done  the shooting. Much of the evidence appeared, to have been of  the class known as "factory''  made. This trial, it is to be hoped,  will cud tbe "repeated attempts  to force Chinese uipon the people  of the Slocan.

They will cheerfully  give $100 to an outside concern  and "stand off" the local paper  for subscription, or crown grant  or -forfeiture notice. They are  always anxious' to have their  prospects or mines written up by  the local paper, but when there is  any money to be expended for  "write-ups" the outside fellow  gets it.

The  question now is, what to do  with it. *  The Sandon Standard has  changed ptoprietors, and is noW  under the editorial charge'of Geo.  Huston, who has had twenty  years experience in railroading-.  Notwithstanding' Mr. Huston's  railroad experience, he has improved The Standard editorially  aud typographically. The Times  wishes The Standard success and  also hopes that it will be successful in putting- some backbone in  the mine-owners of the Slocan,  who have for a dumber of years  been sitting around on the curb  kicking at the government, aud  the railroads, and the smelters,  while they have one of the rich;  est silver-sinc-lead districts in the  world. If they only had energy  jPLQUgl^to_build_ their own smel-  ter, and treat the ores of the Slocan, there would be no need for I  kicks or government aid.  The Nelson Daily News a few  days   ago published a   dispatch  from' Ottawa,   that in the near  future the senate representation  of British Columbia would be in",  creased to six.    Outside of shoestring fnine promoters, if there is  one crop B. C. has  been particularly short on, it is senators.    It  must be admitted that as a legis-  lative body it is useful;   in fact,  even more.useful  than the proverbial fifth wheel in a carriage.  The benefits  that would accrue  to this province from three additional senators will not, of course,  be appreciated. by the common  herd,1" but there will be at least  three men in  the province who  can fully appreciate the far-reaching benefits that will result from  their 'appointment.    Who  these  three will be,  it is difficult  at'  present to  even  surmise,  but if  tbe Daily News will' inform the  public the first date on which entries can be made, the Boundary  will put a couple of well-trained  and well-groomed, political steeds  in the, field,   that will put the  booking 'fraternity on the hike  when the wire is reached. ^The  Boundary 'will" not   be  satisfied  with less than two out of the  three senators.    It has a number  1 v ��� -  of truerfissure political veins, of  blind adherence to party, between  well-defined walls of mental density,- warranted .not to fault or  gouge at' any depth of political  iniquity, aud the; assay values  will'average beybnd'the hopes of  the most .sanguine lobbyist.  These are a few qualifications  that cannot well be,overlooked in  appointments to so exalted a position as that of Canadian se.ua-  m  tor.      .

We envy odd pieces of legislation in
the United States now and then, such,
for instance, as that passed iu Missouri the other day, which forbids the
use as millinery of a long- list uf beautiful birds. We are not aware that a
single sound reason exists why songbirds and their fellows which are of
use in less disting-uUhcd ways Blionld
be sacrificed as they are by the thousand to decorate.hats and bonnets. Yet
the custom persists' in most parts of
the world. Ontario is about ready for
a law like that of-Missouri.—Ex.
dian Pacific would do well to employ a
425,000 traffic expert to bring prosperity to the territory. This latter gen -
tlenieu might undo Some of the other's
work, but a test trial, to see if the
money abstracted has really built a
plant that will endure in the face of
competition, would beiuoider.—Sandon Standard.
If every member of parliament who

Since the Dominion elections Avere
held last November, nothing.ha.« been
heard of public ownership. Are Mr.
Borden and his party going to allow
the issue drop out of sight? If they do
they will sacrifice the most lively and
potent economic issne that is likely to
arise for many.a day. It is true that
it may be easier to arouse the public
over such an issue, as the autonomy
bill, because that appeals to the relig-
iousv sentiment and prejudice of the
people, but public ownership is an
issue that effects the economic well-
being of the nation.—Winnipeg Tribune. , . /

The introduction of Chinese in industries' in Kootenay from which they
have always been'excluded, has resulted in one man being placed on trial
' charged with a grave crime, and the
residents of a community 'being deprived of means of a livlihood in the
neighborhood of their homes. This is
the law, and no .matter how much tlie
injustice,' how much the disorder, how
much the injury to communities, the
law must be enforce'd. .If one man
-may gain thousands and a'hundred
others be deprived of their property
honestly acquired, what matters it?
Were .there no Chinese in Kootenay,
there would be the minimum of trouble
and worry in securing reliable domestic and other help. As long as the
Chinese remain in Kootenay, there
.will' be the maximum of trouble and
worry.'—Nelson Tribune.

Our attorney-general, who upon en
tering publie life some years ago, ad
mitted in an election address that his4
moral nature had been - developed to
a aegree that-unfitted him, to some extent, for public life, can plead that the
moral deterioration which has'followed
his participation in politics is in ac-
cordance-~with~ what- one- celebrated-
writer on the philosophy of politics regards as, a general principle. It was
Sir Henry Maine who declared that
"the party hero or leader is debarred
by his position from the full practice
of the great virtues of veracity, justice'
and moral intrepidity." Mr. Campbell has certainly" not been practicing
of late the virtues enumerated by Sir
Henry Maine; perriaps he might plead
that the exigencies of being attorney-
general in the present Manitoba government forbid him to speak the truth,
deal justly, or make any display of
moral courage.—Winnipeg Free Press.

The press has it that the highest salaried man in British Columbia is the
manager of the Canadian Smelting
Works. The average of the amounts
given is $25,000 per annum.
This manager is responsible and reports only to the president of the Canadian Pacific railway, who iu conjunction controls the policy relating to the
mineral traffic of this railway in the
province, wherefore these' gentlemen
are answerable for the fruits of the
said policy. The smelter manager is
deserving of great credit for the "fine
metallurgical centre he has built up at
Trail, and for his sticktoitivene&s in
perfecting the treatment processes. It
has cost a. mint of -money, and this
money has had to come out of the ore
treated. But this mistake in policy
has been made: The power of the railway has been used to shut ont competition until the plans were perfected.
As before noted, the ore having, to
stand it, it follows that the smelting
industry has been built up by a inon-
^opoly instead of under the force of
competition, which competition would
have assured to the producer more just
returns than received from the monopoly, consequently there would have
been more money for the creation of
further tonnage. This policy is one
utterly at variance with the principles
of railway traffic creation.   The Csana-
