Palmer, of the Jewel mme  staff, was in on Tuesday and reports the site for the new 15  stamp mill cleared, surveyed and  ready for the foundations.*  FARMERS MEETING,  A very well-attended   meeting  ef the Hvncasier  branch  of  the  Farmer'a   Association   was held  last Saturday evening, President  McMynn in the chair.  The resignation of A.' B. Sow-  ter as secretary was accepted with  regret and a rote of thanks given,  him for his services to the Association.  Frank Donald and G. H. Loach  were elected secretary, and treasurer respectively.  It was decided that the asBoci-  tion should purchase a threshing  machine next year to be run on a  company basis.  The secretary was appointed  selling-agent, and these wishing  to purchase farm produce are  ask^d to communicate with him.  On suggestion of Dr. Tamblin,  it was decided to write for information with a view to affiliation  with The Farmers' Institute,  and among other suggestions the  idea of establishing y% creamery  met!with much favor.  .Duncan Ross, M.P.. returned  home on Wednesday last after a  month's campaign in Cariboo.  Denis Murphy, Barrister, of Cariboo, accompanied him on - the  Northern trip which'extended as  far as Barkerville. y The first  meeting was held at ytillobet on  the evening of September 5th and  was very well attended considering the season of the year. The*  farmers in that locality were busy  haying but a large-number of  them took .time to attend tbe  ^meeting. Samuel Q-ibbs,, J.P..  occupied the,chair, arid interesting addresses were delivered, by  Messrs. Ross and Murphy.  From Lillooet the trip was  made over Pavilion Mountain to  Clinton and up the Cariboo road  to ISO Mile House. Chilcotin was  then reached via Ghimney Creek  bridge. Chilcotin is�� district of  magnificent distances and the  population is rather scattered,  although a large number ot new  settlers have gone in, This is  particularly true of the country  round Chezacutt and Tatla Lakes,  where polling places _will be established for the first time ia the  coming election. Messrs, Ross  and Murphy visited TRiskie Creek,  Hanceville, Alexis tlreek and the  *��� ��  return trip to the Cariboo road  was.made via Meldrum Creek and  Soda Creek ferry to Soda Creek.  At Quesnel-the best-meeting of  the tour was held. Quesnel is  now the gateway to thatimmense  and promisin g' territory'albngVthe  line of the Grand Trunk Pacific.  Last year the Dominion Govern--  ment expended sufficient money  on the Fraser River above Ques-  nel to make it navigable through  Cottonwood Canyon aHd to within 12 miles of Fert George. This  has given a great impetus to the  trade of Quesnel,and the old,town  which practically stood still since  the good old golden days is now  now one of the busiest places in  the province.  Tbe meeting was well attended'  the ladies turning out in large  |-numbers. John Y��rkshire,M.P.P.  for Cariboo, was chairman. Mr.  Murphy opened the meeting with  a trenchant defence ofthe Laurier Government. He was followed by John A. Fraser, manager of  the Reid estate, and John Holt,  J.P., who both delivered vigorous  speeches in support of the Conservative cause. Mr. Ross closed  the meeting in an hour and a  half speech in which he replied te  the Conservative speakers and  also referred to what tde Government had done and proposed doing to encourage the development  of the great Cariboo district.  -Stanley was visited and another  successful meeting was held at  Barkerville, the centre of the  Cariboo placer mines. Harry  Jones, M.P.P, the senior local  representative for Cariboo district  presided at the Barkerville meeting-  On the return trip meetings  were held at 150 Mile House with  Sam Warwiek in the chair and  at Clinton with L. LeBourdais  presiding. Both these meetings  were well attended. At Clinton,  Mr. Burrell held a meeting the  night previous enroute to Cariboo,  The Cariboo trip is an exceedingly interesting one and well  worth the taking. The roads  were in oxcellent condition and  the accommodation fer the travelling public on the Cariboo read  is the very best.  Mr. Ross leaves tomorrow for  Bridesville, where he will address  [a public meeting. He will then  continue westward through the  Similkameen and Nicola to  Spence's Bridge. He does net ex  pecfc to return to the Boundary  until November. The elections in  Yale-Cariboo are likely to be held  oa November 14th.  THE BIG TUNNEL.  Rfcharn Armstrong Coming to Greenwood to Start Operations  The following letter to Mayor  Bunting from Richard Armstrong  of Chicago, speaks for itself and  gives every evidence that the promoters of. this great enterprise  which means so much to Greenwood and Phoenix is getting into  shape to commence operations.  Chicago, Sept. 25th, 1908.  Bunting, Mayor,  Greenwood, B.C.  I regret that things have'moved  slowly, but I now expect to  leave here with Col. Dickason on  the 3rd of October.. We may possibly be delayed a few days long-  but we are trying to make arrangements tc leave then.' I am  arranging to get a Charter for  Tramway as soon as possible, and  hope to get everything shaped up  when I get out, and to start operations as soon as Charter aud  By-law are  granted.  -    Yours sincerely,'  Richard Armstrong.  SUSPECTS RELEASED  Provincial  Police Have No  Evidence to Offer  GIVES GOOD ADVICE  H  so  CITY AFFAIRS  Council Orders New Fire Equipment  At the regular meeting of the  City Couucil Monday evening, a  letter was read from Phoenix  "Water Supply Co. re repairs to  Providence Creek* pipe, line and  the clerk was instructed to notify  the Company that so far as the  pipe line is concerned theY work  was satisfactory.  S. P. Dixon was Vpaid $200 on  account of Providence Creek contract.  The tender of M. McKenzie of  29c per running foot for digging  water main,trencH^nGold street  was accepted,     'y ...*-.'.'���  It was- ordered that hook and  ladder truck be ordered from  Kinney and McDonald as per tender of August 1st at $300, and  that 200 feet of half-inch rope be  ordered for Us�� of fire department  The account,'from the Ledge  ef $12 was ordered paid upon receipt of corrected invoice.  By-laws 133 and 134 were reconsidered arfd finally passed.  REBUILDING FERNIE  Model City with Fire-proof Buildings  Rising From the Ashes  The two men, Green and Rice,  who wero arrested at Middl��*sboro  on suspicion of being implicated  in the Midway murder were  brought in to Greenwood on Monday.  Their hearing before Stipendiary-Magistrate McMynn yesterday was very brief.  Constable Aston explained that  the accused has given him a statement as to their movements and  whereabouts for weeks past and  he produced"' a poll-tax receipt  dated August 30th, showing that  they had worked for nine days  previous to that date on the V.V.  and E construction. He had  verified their statements, and  was convinced that it was impossible that they could be the men  who were guilty of the crimes at  Midway;  The magistrate forthwith discharged    them    from    custody.  Many words of sympathy are  heard for Green and Rice. : Especially painful is the experience  of Harold Green whose mother is  dangerously ill at Nelson. Green  is   a   big, honest-looking young  ���    m%  fellow, and both he and Rice look  just like the ordinary man in  working garb.  We hope thoy will be able te  find employment without having  to hit the pike to hunt a job ; and  with a word to some of bur Exchanges we hope this painful incident will close.  It is no pastor a newspaper's  businesatefipro^nm a majbgai^  before he is tried.  These men had no connection  with the Midway outrage. Their  former camp did not disclose suspicious features, and at no time  did it seem certain that the right  meh had keen captured.  On the contrary it was expected that they would be released  immediately they had a bearing.  They'were innocent men dragged from thoir work and carried  in irons for hundreds ot miles by  the officers of the provincial government and that is surely, bad  enough without the anticipatory  remarks of the papers referred to,  The work of rebuilding Fernie  is making rapid progress and a  new city is arising|from the ashes  of a terrible conflagration in a  marvellous manner.  The greatest enterprise is be-  shown and commendable businesslike methods are being adopted.  The new city will be practically fire-proof and everyth ing is  being carried out ou a well-settled.  plan with the object of preventing a recurrence of the recent disaster.  Structures of cement brick and  stone are replacing the former  wooden buildings.  The Fernie Brick Co. is turning  out large quantities of tbe finest  brick from a fine deposit of clay  discovered near tho city since the  fire.  Three to four carloads of cement are arriving every day, and  lumber is being rushed in though  not in, quantities to supply the  demand.  New lights and telephones will  soon be installed and the people  are enthusiastic. .  Business is brisk and the confidence of the people is demonstrated in the splendid buildings that  are goiug up, such as the new  Hotel Fernie which will be a pattern of elegance, built of brick  cement and stone at a cost of $40-  000.  Banks, residences and business  blocks are spaaing up in every  direction and soon the city of Fernie will stand a bigger, busier  and m every way a better city  than it was before the fire.  Tells Vancouver People of the Vast  Wealth of the Boundary  The remarks of Dr. W. G. Mil.  ler, President of the Canadian  Mining Institute, to the business  men of Vancouver met with a  hearty encore from the mining  men of the Boundary country.  He frankly told the Coast people that they had been neglecting  their opportunities : that here in  theunterior of southern British Col  umbia was one uf the very richest  mineral zones in the world, and.  be urged on them the necessity  of getting direct communication  with it at as early a date-as possible.  Dr. Miller ls one of our mdst  eminent geologists and was heard  with marked attention. No one  is better fitted to carry conviction  in matters relating to metalliferous mining in this part of the  country for he knows whereof he  speaks.  His point of view is that of  the Canadian who wants to see  the enormous wealth drawn from  onr great mines kept in the couu-  tre and utilized in building up  the cities and the settlements of  British Columbia.  He advised them to support the  projects under way to connect  the mining districts of the Crow's  Nest to the Boundary and the  Similkameen with the cities of  the coast that they may derive  their natural share of the splendid  trade that may be developed with  the richly mineralized areas of  the hinterland of B.C.  This is a matter of the first importance to the coast cities as well  as to those who are developing  our interior mines.  v ii> -io--- iaf-ytfce*'' natural;!��jrderrof  things to come about; and with  the co-operation of those most  vitally concerned the time will  quickly come when Vancouver  will feel the quickening effect of  the prodigious stores of wealth'  that will roll outward from the  Boundary to the sea.  John Hendry, President of the  B.C. Timber and Trading Co. has  been chosen president of the Canadian Manufacturer's Association  for tho coming year.  Old-Timer's Re/Union  The pioneers of the Boundary  and South Okanagan had a very  pleasant re-union at Keremeos.  The speeches were mostly of a  [���reminiscent nature  and   compli-  ���mentary of the development   of  the mining and ranching industries of the Boundary country,  The officers elected for the ensuing year are president, F. Rich-  ter, Keremeos ; secretary, A. Me-  graw, Hedley ; treasurer, J. R.  Jaeksen, Midway.  1900       1901       1902        1903        1904        1905 190* 1907  64,533. 231,762   309458   393,711)   549,703   6533*9 801,404 613^37  297      1,741     20,800    71012              8,426 135.001  j^40     99,034   141,326   138.079   174,29$   147.576 105.90C 208,231  19,494     47,405     14,811     19,365    ���        .. .-��� 1,488 1,712            650      8,530     22,937    37,960      9,485 11.804 18,374                15,537     ����,400      3,007 3,177 14,481  20  -   Past  1908   Week  831,014   21,861  2907   2,400  169,585   9,684  47,837.    1,367  1,280  802  550  October 2,'OB  BOUNDARY'ORE TONNAGE  The followlBf; Utile Rives tke ore shipment! of Bonsdary mine* for 1900, 1901, 1902, 1903,  1904, 1905, 1906,1907.19 OF ae reported to the Green*oed Timee���  JtflNB.

OCTOBER   2, 1908  TIMES HAVE CHANGED,  There are many people in British Columbia to whom the condition of things as they were a decade ago give but little concern.  The reason is that they were not  here in the country and have had  no experience of the manner in  which things were run to the detriment of all business and the  consequent hardship to the work-  ingman.  To those we would address a  few words for their consideration  as to the causes which have made  possible their residence and preseut prosperity of B.C.  The natural resources of Western Canada were first called into  prominence in the early eighties  and a great migration westward  set in from theeastern provinces.  The prime cause of this tremendous rush was the opening of  the prairies to settlement by the  construction of the C.P.R., and  nogovernment ever had a better  opportunity to colonize a new  country than the Tory regime in  power at that time.  But what was the Conservative  policy towards the pioneer who  undertook the work of developing  the country ? It waa the same  policy as they have in view today,  "adequate" protection for the  eastern maufacturer and a complete monopoly for the Corporations.  There was no railway competition and no attempt to enforce  fair rates. .  There was no Board of Railway Commissioners, and the produce of the struggling settler was  handled by combines which  bought it at their own price.  The man who came to build  the west was discouraged and  sometimes left the country.  The greed of the corporations,  fostered and abetted by a shortsighted government spread desolation where hope had begun to  grow.  Before the Liberal party was  given control the plight of the  western people was desperate indeed. The sparce population of  the territories could not support  the one line of railway they then  had and they were taxed to death  with exhorbitant rates.  British Columbia was practically an unknown land and all the  west was simply marking time  when Laurier took the reins.  Through the adoption of an  aggressive policy of colonization,  a re-adjustment of rates and tariffs and revision ofthe homestead  laws by a wise and capable administration tremendous changes  have been wrought in Western  Canada.  The prairies first felt the in-  vigoration of the advance westward of men and money ; and  great wheat fields grew where  the lone coyote once raised his  mournful hdwl.  New lines of railway crawled  out to meet the growing harvests,  till today a mighty population of  prosperous farmers fill the prairie  land.  They call for products which  they cannot produce, and British  Columbia has felt the benefit because we have the goods that fill  the bill in lumber, fisheries and  fruit.  And more than that the farmer  who has sold successive crops of  dollar wheat and holds a fair-  sized bank account, has sought a  kinder climate and has begun to  move towards the sunny valleys  of B.C.  The vanguard of an army of  settlers which will ever increase  has made the fertile Okanagan  bloom with the flower of the apple, plum and peach and will  crowd the slopes and valleys of  the province with a myriad of  happy homes.  New lines of railroads have  been built. From the Boundary  to the Crow the greatest mineral  region in the world has heen opened up to development, and in  the north a very empire will spring  to life with the construction of  the Transcontinental railway.  Remember these great accomplishments of one decade of progressive government. Compare  these works with the deplorable  conditions existing before and  decide for yourself whether it  would be to your own interest to  vote for any change that would  check the march of progress in  the West.  Neither Mr; Ross nor Mr. Bur-  rell needs any introduction to the  people and no charges of theft or  high treason have as yet been  preferred in Yale-Cariboo.  The people are prosperous and.  as intelligent as any electorate in  the country, and there is no indication of any change of sentiment  since they last endorsed the party of progress and elected a man  of action and influence as their  representative in parliament.  Abuse, slander and general accusations of boodling have ever  been the stock-in-trade of certain  Canadian politicians, and in tbe  present campaign no exception is  being made to the rule.  No charge has ever been laid  against a member of the Federal  government, and the inuendoes of  the stump-speaker are a positive  proof that he is endeavoring to  present a desperate case.  The same government was bitterly assailed by the same opponents when Canadian troops were  sent across the seas, and the most  rancorous feeling displayed by.  the- Conservative opposition  against the liberal administration, -f '*������-:  The camgitg^ef slander now  The C.P.R. will run a double  daily service between Vancouver  and "Winnipeg a'l winter.  The new station of the Spokane  and B.C. railway at Grand Forks  was burned on Saturday.  That our American forests abound in  plants which possess tbe most valuable  medicinal virtues is abundantly attested  by scores of th�� most eminent medical  writers and teachers. Eveni the.gwfiu-'  tored Indians had discovered tiie usefulness of many native plants before the  advent of the white race. This information, imparted freely to the whites, led  the latter to continue investigations until  to-day we have a rich assortment of most'  valuable American medicinal roots.  ��� Y- Y '<>>.

Instead ot their predicted disasters we have astonishing development of the country's resources  with greater plans for the future.  That is why the people are-  pleased with the Laurier administration and will keep the Liberal party in control until these  great national projects are completed.

It will  be the largest saw-mill in the  world.  The Honorable Richard McBride  was not a candidate for the Dominion house in the Victoria district , Mr. McBride is wise and  knows that a bird in the hand is  worth a whole covey in the bush.  R. P.

"Those who are disposed to belittle ahd find fault with the  Lemieux Act because it failed to  prevent the strike of the C.P.R.  machinists should not forget the  case of the telegraphers and the  forty other cases where the act  has been successful in ending disputes promptly and . averting  industrial war. An act which,  in forty odd cases, has done what  it was designed to do, but which  has failed in two or three cases,  cannot fairly be said to have  proved a failure. If the percentage of successes in favor of  every law on the statute book  were as great as the percentage  in favor of- the Lemieux Act, this  would be a.law-abiding country  indeed."���Hamilton Herald.

Simply because most people  cannot take die Oil andiew can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form. Then  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 (thk whole ofthe Oil)  and is richer, in oil than any other  emulsion, and while it con tains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  3nd 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  ehhanced.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 of any kind of  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  '-You Know What   ,  Vou Take"  cover*/.'* -whlt-ft hps nrov^n itself to *-.�� the  ���"���t- otfli-lBtit. etnmnch tnnlr. l|v����r InvlgQT-  f^uii^ fifinrt,-fonlc and regulator, and bloou  cleanser Vr-own to medical sclencft Dyspepsia* or indigestion, wrnld "liver, "functional  and ev*J�� r&lvular -and other affections of  the BtitfiV yield to Its curative action.
