And yet he runs away  on the pretence that Mr. Borden  wants his help." <,  MINING INSTITUTE  Inspect the Great Mines and  Smelters of the Boundary  Speak Words of Assurance for Greenwood-  FROM VICTORIA AND  THE OKANAGAN  The party of members of the  Canadian Mining Institute and  guests which left Quebec on the  24th of August to visit the leading mining camps, of Canada arrived in Greenwood yesterday by  special train and left Ahis morning for Phoenix,        '-���.  The personnel of this distinguished party is composed of  about forty of the most prominent  and expert mining engineers from  the East, Great Britain, and Europe, and has been augmented all  the way frdm Cobalt and the Crow  and Kootenay, by mine managers  and engineers who are members  of the Institute.  Besides the Canadian members  and W- R. Brock, Director of the  Dominion Geological Survey,  there are 2L British and four  German engineers and the list includes such names as W. G. Miller,.Pres. of the institute; Dr  Potonie, of the Prussian Geological Survey, W. Frecheyille, of  London, Eng.,. Walter Johnson,  Northallerton, Engvi Hugh F.  Marriott, London, -James Barrow-  man, Hamilton,-Scotland, Sec. of,j  the Mining Institttte of Scotland,  A.

For stalwart forms and  intellectual brows, for frank and  amiable ways and manners we  commend you to those mining engineers.  Greenwood is proud to have entertained her guests in so fitting  a manner, and to hear with so  certain a sound the assurances  from, these men who know that  the Boundary can produce the  goods and that Greenwood will  yet become the greatest mining  centre of the whole Dominion.  Their confirmation of the gigantic proportions of the Mother  Lode mine, and the encomiums  to the management were pleasant  to hear, but of greatest moment j  were the assurances of such able  men as John Ashworth, of England, that capital Jwould surely  come to develop the incomparable resources of the Boundary,as  yet but scarcely prospected even  with the great mines already in  operation.  It was admitted by the visiting  engineers that of the $2,515,000  outstanding of the B.C. Copper  Co's shares, that they saw, in  surface plant alone, more tban  enough to represent the cost.  It is especially fortunate that  such men as W. R. Brock and Dr.  Miller were with the party. They  are familiar with the locality and  its vast deposits of metals, and  with what has been.done. to de-  develop and put these mines in  producing shape, and are capable  of showing how the Boundary  mines are in a position of preparation, of two years iu advance, to  demonstrate that they will easily  equal the very greatest producing  properties that are known. Conjecture and prophecy no longer  have a place in Boundary mining  affair?, and the eulogies of the  distinguished men to the sagacity  of the venerable founder of our  city, Rofiert Wood, and oi the  long and able work of Frederic  Keffer,. thc men who first recognized the boundless   possibilities  Boundary Fruit and Farm Lands are in  Favor With Men W ho Know.  The Kettle Valley Irrigated  Fruit Lands Co., of.Midway,have  during the past week disposed of  two plots of ten acres, each to  John Black adder, of Victoria, and  Thos. Scuddamore of Ontario,but  more recently of Vernon.  With a fifty-acre deal pending  with another Okanagan man this  company has already disposed of  about 300 acres this year at prices,  varying from $100 to $1.75 per  acre, the choicest selling for $200,.  The have about 2,700 acres that  will be irrigated extending six  miles to twelve miles above Midway on the Kettle river and have  a five-mile ditch irom Rock Creek  in operation.  This puts about 1,000 acres under irrigation and by next year  they will have all their ditches  and flumes constructed. A force  of men will be employed all winter in clearing land, and 100 acres  have already been planted out in  fruit on the   company's property.  The elevation of the Kettle  Valley 13 about 1,900 feet above  sea-level, and to show the capabilities of this locality as a .fruitgrowing section an exhibit made  up from the local ranches will be  made at the Nelson Fair, comprising apples, pears, plums, prunes,  apricots and vegetables.  The soil for the most part is a  sandy loam, and on the benches  will grow fine fruit without irrigation, though-on the driest parts  it is woderful what a Iii tie water  will do. In the fruit-growing  season the average rainfall is  about 15 inches.  One notable feature" of the  Bounjiary * Hi Srricris' the airi_o s t  entire absence of winds. In winter the heavyiest snow-fail is 18  or 20 inches - and the snow lies  like a blanket. The winter is  steady from Dec. 1st to the end of  February and the weather is beautiful and clear. In summer it is  never too hot and the; evenings  are always cool.  Among the products of this locality this year will be abeut 500  tons of potatoes of a very superior quality and equal in every respect to auy spuds that are grown  From the number of enquiries  received by Mr. D. R. Tait, Manager of the . Kettle Valley Irrigated Lands Co., it is expected  that the Boundary country will  soon receive a large influx ot settlers from the prairies, and with  the building of the Midway and  Vernon line, which it is said is  soon to go ahead, the Kettle Valley couitry will, at au early  day become one of the most prominent fruit f-and vegetable producing sections of B.C.  BIC DEAL CLOSED  For Boundary Mines  Yesterday  Option Taken on Group in Wellington  Camp  ON THE WEST FORK  MOTHER LODE MINE  In Greenwood yesterday' the  biggest deal that has taken place  in the Boundary fer some time  was signed between the B.C. Copper Co. and theownersef a group  of claims in Welliagton camp,  six miles from Greenwood.  The properties' under option  are the Molly Pritchard and At-  helstan fraction owned by Forbes  M. Ker by, of Grand Forks, and  John Buckley, of Phoenix; the  Jack Pot, owned by Jas. M.  Doyle, oftheG.N.R.,_Al. Sanderson and L. Moriarity, of Grand  Forks, and the Buttercup and  Bay Horse owned by J. J. Farrell  Phoenix. These claims all adjoin each other.  The ore is an arsenical iron carrying copper, with values chiefly  is gold.  It is not a flux, though not a detriment. It will be a straight  metalliferous mining proposition  and will be worked primarily for  the values it contains in gold.  This deal was almost completed last falf but owing to thc mon*  ey stringency the negotiations  were temporarily suspended.  Investigations of the properties  were recentlvresumed by Manager  McAllister and Mr. Frederick  Keffer, consulting engineer "for  the B.C. Copper Co., and it is especially gratifying t�� see such" a  powerful and successful company,  which stands in the front rank  of the Boundary producers, taking hold of other properties in  the district.  In all the holdings this great  Company has acquired their works  of development have been successful, and it is next to a' certainty  that their new properties will  prove to be mines.  The ore will be carried by tram  line and the Great. Northern to  Denoro and from tbat point oyer  the C.P.R. to the Company's  smelter at Greenwood. Active  work will begin on Monday, and  great satisfaction is expressed in  Greenwood at th��- brightening  outlook of mining affairs.  The present action of the man*  A new strike of 4 inches ot high  grade grey copper and ruby silver  was made last week in the Sally  .  mine.  Messrs. Keith and Ketchum report business improving in their  general store business.  In the location of the new railway line the surveyors have succeeded in redusing the elevation  100 feet.  J. D. Sword and partners aro  busy with improvements and development work on the Boll claim  Billy Morton.has found a nice  body of ore en his claim at Carmi  and went out to Midway on Monday.  Henderson and Cummings are  working their claim on Wallace  Mountain.  W. E. McBoyle, well-known on  the West Fork, is at Goldfields,  Nevada.  Fayette Harris, one of the owners of the Highland Chief, is at  the Nickle Plate mine at Hedley.  Tom Currie, veteran prospector  and miner is now chef at the Sally mine and no complaints have  as yet been registered.  Geo. Barrett will commence  development work en his group  of claims known as the Revenge.  Father Ferrous had the misfortune to lese-his beautiful grey  horse last week.  Alex. Bloomfield, proprietor of  the Westbridge hotel has gone  on a trip to the prairies.  John Burns for two years on  the staff of the Sally mine leaves  next week on a visit to the old  country.  agemfent of the B.C. Copper Co.  is a demonstration of the faith  which their profound knowledge  of the mineral deposits of the  Boundary has given them, and.  will give an impetus to the mining industry that could be produced in no better way.  Others will act on the initiative  of such competent authority, and  in fact there are other negotiations already under way.    .  The  addresses of mining men  from Spokane,    New York   and  Chicago are a mat ter of daily occurrence on  the registers of city  hotels, and just another , deal or  two, and the   commancemint   of  the big tunnel   from Greenwood  tothe   bottom   of. the   Phoenix,  mines, and the  whole   Boundary  country will flourish as the banner mining camp of British North  America.  Tuesday evening at the Mother  Lode boaidiug hall occurred the  benefit dancing party for R. Fot-  hergill given by thc ladies of  Mother Lode mine. McIIenry's  Orchestra furnished the music,  the entertainment was a success  in every respect. About 200 people were in attendance and $230  was cleared. Coffee, cake, and  ice cream were served by the ladies. The party was a very enjoyable social event, and the ladies  feel very grateful to all the  friends who so kindly contributed  to its success. Mr. Fothergill expects to leave soon for his home  in England.  Born���Tuesday, September 15,  to Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Ennis, a  girl.

Pbr Ybak          2 00  Six Months  1 25  To Foreign Countries 2 50  FRIDAY.   SEPTEMBER 18; 1908  ONCE MORE IN THE BREACH  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the grand  old man of whose life so many  jears have been spent in the service of the Dominion has once  again appealed to the people for  a continuation of control that he  niSij be permitted to finish the  great works of development which  his government have under way.  Under his administration our  couhtry has advanced from the  dark days of doubt, dissension  and political intrigue, to a position that commands the attention  and respect of all ihe nations of  the earth, aud our distinguished  Premier has been honoured and  acclaimed amongst the foremost  statesmen of the empire.  His voice carries uo sound of  the man who seeks for power for  power's sake alone.  He is conscious of the changes  -which bave been wrought in the  sentiments of the people, aad he  recognizes the ' fact that under  his beneficent rule the country  has enjoyed a period of wonderful  progress and prosperity.  The squalls of political treachery and distrust have been stilled,  the storms of racial strife have  died away, and the ship of state  rides cheerily on the growing  commercial wave with the master  at the heiin.  May the people grani the prayer  of onr venerable Premier that he  be allowed to finish the work laid  out for him to perform.  The British Government awakened to the fact that the owners  of foreign'patents held in Great  Britain, while manufacturing  their goods in other countries and  selling to the British consumer to  the displacement of the products  of the British workman, were allowed by the former law to choose  their own locations for their industrial establishments.  Already large preparations have  been made to meet the new requirement.  It is estimated that $100,000.-  000 will immediately be spent in'  the   building of new manufacturing plants in   the   United Kingdom.  Many American concerns will  lessen their output and produce in  England the merchandise sold in  that couutry.  It has been said that the Manchester canal will be lined with  American factories.  The Germans too will be greatly  affected and have taken a most,  serious attitude on the question.  An alliance has been suggested  which would segregate the British in the field of commerce, and  bitter comments aremade against  what is considered the most important trade move that the British government has made for a  long time.  The import of finished goods  will be checked, while the use of  raw materials will be increased,  and 'this will undoubtedly furnish  employment for the many workmen who are idle at the present  time.  What international complications may result from the enforcement of the new patent law remain of course to be seen.  "We have time enbugh to work  up the electidn in good shape,and  we have the best of them in the  matter of the voter's lists; for we  have to go to the country on the  revision of May last."  So said the Tory candidate at  Victoria. What a barefaced, claim  that the Provincial Government  have deliberately made the voter's  lists to suit themselves.  We shall contend at all times  for provineial rights, but - when  unfair and dishonest advantage  is taken of the magnanimous pel-  icy of the Federal Government,  we believe such power should be  taken away from those who disabuse their authority.  There was a conference the other day in the office of Premier  McBride.  Mr. Shepherd, the conservative  nominee for Nanaimo, and comrade Hawthornthwaite were there  to do the conferring.  This Tory-Socialist aggregation knows that the only hope to  defeat Ralph.Smith, M.P., lies in  the joining ot their forces as they  did in other days.  The aspiring comrade has a  solid bunch of retainers that he  might be able to deliver to aid the  truly faithful followers of whatever claims to be Conservative;  And if.be should, reciprocation  might be given when the Comrade runs again.. ���, ..-������'  But it matters little to the stalwart member for Nanaimo what  deal these comrades make. ,Tke  people will return, him with his  last plurality of 400 votes, and  break the back of the disgraceful  alliance which still struggles to  defeat the will of the people  Namaimo riding."- ���  '�����.  of  STRONGER THAN TARIFF LEGISLATION  The new British Patent Law  which now goes iuto full effect in  Great Britain will work an industrial revolution in the manufacturing world of the British Isles.  The purport of the law is that  hereafter patents granted there  must be utilized there.  This meansthat those who hold  patent rights in the mother-land  roust establish plants and manufacture their goods there *���* to au  adequate extent,"  BOWSER.  Attorney-General Bowser of the  Conservative Provincial Government announced at Vancouver  that, at tbe request of Premier  McBride, he would leave for the  east this week to stump for tbe  Tory party in the Federal campaign.  What else could the former  Gotoh counsel do ?  The people of B. C. are quite  familiar with the granting by  the McBride-Bowser government  to Japanese companies of concessions of mineral and timber lands  of enormous value.  On the Queen Charlotte Islands  the Japs are in oa the ground  floor and have franchises to own  and operate their mines and  mills, to construct, own, -and op-  eaate steamboats and railroads  and almost any thingelse that the  Japanese people might desire to  furnish employment to their fellow-countrymen and enrich  themselves at the expense of  the natural resources of British  Columbia,  Tbe people ot British Columbia  know the story of the Gotoh contract to supply 50,000 Japanese  laborers to the C.P.R. and the  Wellington Collieries ; and the  part played by Attorney-General  Bowser as solicitor for Sauri  Gotoh, of Japan. .   "  Perhaps while lulminating before the people of the eastern provinces the exiled Bowser may be  able to convince the Conservative  premiers of Ontario and Manitoba that Richard McBride was  not quite the most unsuitable man  Hon. Qeo. YE. Foster, who is  campaigning on P.E.I.-, has declared himself heartily in favor  of a tunnel from "The IslanA"  to the mainland.  Of course this can have no connection with what is   known  pre-election promises.  There are few pp.ople iu British  Columbia  who do not look forward to a.time when   they   may  grow fruit.    It may be  only  for  their own use or may be a  commercial venture,   but  conditions  are such in this province   to give  nearly everyone au itching to try  his hand.    It is safe   to say that  everyone with a piece of property,  small or large, is anxious to fall  in   iiney'  Nature   has   endowed  tkis-proiince so, lavishlv that the  attraction is  irresistible^   while  from a pecuniary   standpoint the  opportunity is not to be overlooked.   "Thousands are   already engaged in fruit growing ; many devote all their time   to - it,   while  there, are   few   landowners who  cannot take vou around their property   and   show   you how fruit  raising is not only attractive but  a paying venture. Then there are  thousands, too, who are only waiting for their chance-lo swell these  numbers.  British. Columbia is indeed fortunate in being so richly endowed.  A country capable of producing  fruit such as this province, can  boast o f no more attractive feature. No better fruit is 'grown in  the world than is grown in British Columbia. Highest honors  have been taken whenever the  fruit of this province has been  shown, and until such time as a  pl-ice can be found which will produce superior fruit, British Columbia will continue to head the  list. .���-:'  No wonder everyone has a hankering to go into fruit growing. It-  may be that only one small tree,  is the extent ot the experiment,  but it'is usually watched as if it  were a yrhole orchard. Many settlers have been brought to British Columbia just because of its  wonderful opportunities in .fruit  growing, and those who make it  only a secondary consideration  lose no time in taking advantage  of the possibilities so abundant  here.���Saturday Sunset.   . ���  Cures Woman's  We refer to that boo11 to weak, nervous,  Buffering women known as Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription.

Then why does not  everybody take Cod' Liver Oil and  Iron ? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron, in any ordinary form. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is scientifically combined with the Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable" and the Iron digestible.  While  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and is richer in oil than any other]  emulsion, and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  and Phosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds any trouble in taking it,  and infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover the well-established value of  the Oil and Iron is immensely  enhanced, by the process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to be ��� wondered at that  physicians everywhere have fully  endorsed FERROL and used it largely  in their practice.. FERROL is invaluable for the treatment pf any kind of  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  "You Know What  You Take"  Grikg& Morrison, Prop.

Kei Hara, at a banquet held in  his honor.  Hara delivered a straightforward statement of much significance which is looked upon by  local Japanese as being a message  from the Japanese government.  "You cannot expect very much  from your home government,"  said the former minister of Japan's Home Affairs, "for Japan is,  in one sense, a new country, Japan is just on the crest of a waye  of development and, furthermore,  there are other things just as  weighty that are keeping the  government busy Consequently  -eery little time can be devoted to  the interests of those Japanese  who have temporarily or permanently forsaken their home land to  take up their residencein Canada."  Commenting on the speech in an  editoriafyesterday the Canadian  News, a local Japanese paper,  vigorously attacks the sentiments  expressed in Hara's speech and  states that, if- the Japanese here  can get no consideration from  their own government, they can  expect little courtesy from the  Canadian government and they  are therefore betwixt two fires.���  Vaace��T��r World.
