CHAMPLAINS  ,j\TO  Among tbe properties in tbe  Boundary, upon which a large  amount of development work bass  been done ihis year, is the Jewel  miue, iu Loup Late camp, within  eight miles of Greenwood.  Tbe Jewel is one of the oldest  miueral locations in the district,  and was staked by the Diltmer  brothers, iu 1S95. It bas been  worked almost continuously since  ils location, and the first steam  plaut brought into the district  was installed on this property. A  good wagon road connects the  property with tbe city.  Soon atter tbe discovery of the  vein, the owners sold to the Prospecting Syndicate of B. C, an  English Syndicate represented  by Leslie Hill, M. E.. who developed the property for a number  of years, placing- the ore on the  dump and exploiting the fine vein  of gold-bearing quartz in all directions. Mr. Hill was a busy  man, and his numerous other engagements took the greater part  of his time, and after outlining  the plan of development, the mine  was placed iu charge of Mr. Gil-  bertMahon, oue of the directors  of the Prospecting Syndicate and  himself a large shareholder. Mr.  and Mrs. Mabon came out from  England and resided for a considerable period at tbe mine. In the  mean time another company was  organized in London, to confine  its attention solely to the deveop-  ment of tbe Jewel. This company was registered as the Jewel  Development Syndicate. Mr  Mabon took active charge in November of 1898 and during bis tenure of management over 1,000  feet of development were added to  Ural ai ready-done*.  *  On Mr. Mahon's return to  England, where his private property demanded-bis attention, the  mine work was continued for a  while under the management of  VV O. Wright, when, the company having used up its available  capital, work was suspended.  Within quite recent years the  owners reorganized once more and  placed Mr. R. Roberts M. E. of  Rossland, and well known in  tbis district aa a most able and  conscientious mining engineer, in  full charge of Ihe present scheme  ot op>ratious, which is being  pusbed forward with most gratifying results. The large mill and  cyanide plant is almost completed. The mine bas been connected  with the Bonnington Falls electric power line from the Mother  Lode mine and a full equipment  of electrical and milling machinery installed. Tbe mill will be  ready for operation by September. Mr. Roberts is assisted by  J. Stuart Palmer and has a foi-ce  of miners underground, with carpenters and machinists at the  new mill, which is situated on  the shore of Long lake, within  2,000 feet of tbe mine shaft, and  connected with it by tramway.  The quartz ledge occurs in a  granite formation and is in some  places altered and cut by dykes  having a porphyritic structure.  The ledge is a regular ^fissure  vein averaging four feet in width,  carrying a thin clay gangue, with  values in gold and silver. There  are quantities of galena, zinc  blend, iron pyrites and occasionally ruby silver, tellurites of gold  and silver and some free gold.  Exceedingly high assays have  been secured and a careful record  kept of the values at all points  The average for the entire mine  is in tbe neighborhood of gl5.  METALS.  MORE DISPUTED  BOUNDARIES  It is now our neighbors' turn to  celebrate lhe tercentenary    of   a  Champlain achievement.    It 'wfls  in this month ot the   year   1609  that the great explorer ��lv-c-.ve'red  tbe lake that goes by hi.-,'   uunie.  It wis not in the pursuit of peace  that that disc-very wasiliade. Unfortunately  most of C.hnmp'uin's  activity south of what i-,nuw the  international  boundary fine  was  in tbe wav of warfare, "rfflis   alliance with the   Hurons,' Algou-  quitts and   Montagnais   was  perhaps not so   much   an   error   of  judgment as a   necessity-..,of   his  position.    These   tribrsi occupied  the   country toward   which   the  enterprise of which he   was   the  director turned.    They roved over  the richest fur country and their  routes were those towards  which  the seeker for a -'north-tvest passage" would be drawn,    The go* d-  will of the Hurons and   their  associates   was   all    important   to  Champlain,    who was    probably  made to understand that if he did  not cultivate their friendship  be  would bave to bear tbeir  enmity.  Thus, it is  not improbable tbat  the choice he made was deliberate,  and might not have be>��n different  had he been better iuformedas to  the   formidableness   of  the   Iroquois.    Apparently     he   had   to  make  one side or tbe other   his  enemv, and he preferred  to have  as his allies the tribes who  held  the country   he   most desired to  operate in.    At   all    events,   he  embraced the cause of the Hurons  and Algonquins, and bad hardily  exchanged pledgeft-with them before they called upon him to move  upon  their implacable  foe.    He  fell in with their wishes.    Witb  two other white men   he  joined  two hundred braves bound for the  Iroquois country.    At the mouth  of "the Richelieu nearly one hundred and fifty of tbe red men grew  sulky and   went   back    to   their  hunting grounds.    With the rest  he went up tbe Richelieu, and on  the shore of the lake from which  that stream flows and which has  ever since been called after   him  he first encountered the Iroquois,  or rather a band of the   Mohawk  tribe belonging to   that  confederacy.    The Mohawks  were two  hundred strong, but the firearms  of the white people terrified them,  and they fled, not, however, until  some of their number were killed  and others captured.    This   was  the event   by which    Champlain  signalized his entry into the  territory of the country that is now  celebrating his tercentenary.

On the night of July  9th, at La Paz, Bolivia, a furious mol>  attacked the Argentine legation  Troops have been called out, and  fears are felt for the safety of the Argentine minister. The trouble is the  outcome of the decision, rendered hy  President Alcorta, of Argentine, in  the Boundary dispute between Peru  and Bolivia.  Senor Fonseca is the A routine  minister ro Bolivia. Great crowds  that had been parading: the streets  finally turned in the direction of the  Argentine legation, which they surrounded. There were shouts of rage,  and stones and other missiles were  hurled at the buildings. The local  authorities endeavored to check the  manifestations, and at length the government found it necessary to order  out troops. Both this legation and  the Peruvian legation are now under  a strong guard  The Bolivian people unanimously  protest against the decision rendered  by President Alcorta, which they consider most unjust. The territory involved is the famous Acre district, recently purchased by Brazil from Bolivia for 510,000,000, notwithstanding the fact that Peru issued a warning that the territory at that time was  the subject of arbitration.  At Buenos Ayres, on the same day,  Dr. Victorine De La Plaza, minister  of foreign affairs, invited the ministers of Bolivia and Peru, accredited  to the Argentine government, to call  at the foreign office in order to lay  before them the arbitration decision  rendered by President Alcorta on the  boundaries between the two countries.  The Bolivian minister failed to appear at the ministry, explaining later  that he refused the invitation in order  not to commit his government on the  decision. President Alcorta divides  the contested territory almost equally  between the two countries, but nevertheless favors Peru. The new frontier follows for the greater part the  sixty-ninth meridian.  LABORERS STRIKE GOLD  This week bas witnessed the  first move in the direction of a  settlement of the differences between the B. C. Copper Co. and  the. local union, The company  offers the. union the same recognition and will pay the men on  the same wage scale as other operating concerns in the district  and has requested the union to  send a committee to discuss points  in dispute. This is distinctly a  friendly advance and the union  called a special meeting last night  to arrange for this.  instalultToY-  of officers  TO DEFEND  PRINCE RUPERT  If the British Columbia young idea  is not taught how to shoot, it will apparently not be for want of teachers.  Eight hundred people are aspiring to  the necessary license to discharge that  honorable duty. How many of these  are men and how many are of the  gentler sex we are not at present in  formed. The number of applicants  this year is exceptionally large, but it  would, nevertheless, be an interesting  subject of inquiry by some unprejudiced persons to ascertain what becomes of all thc schoolma' ams.  What becomes of all the pins, all  the needles, all the birds that die in  the forests, all the buttonholes that  have outlived their usefulness, all the  New Year's resolutions, all the promises of politicians and diverse and  sundry other things like that have  been the subject of more or less,  principally less, earnest thought; but  the fate of those of the gentle sex,  who start out in life with high ideals  and a teacher's certificate, is, like the  secret of malleable glass, an unsolved  problem. We have a suspicion that  a little god, who carries a bow and  arrows, could answer the question if  he chose to tell. But he never tells  anything except to the two people  most concerned. Greenwood has  already lost quite a number of most  estimable voung lady teachers in the  last few years, but it is cheering to  know the supply is unlimited  Sidney Oliver, phoue  B 51,  will sup-  . 051 ply your.ice needs.  The water supply of Los Angeles,  from the filtered stores of the valley  country, will wind through a strata of  gold. Part of the aqueduct is found  to be located through country heavy  with auriferous veins, and in a number of cases pockets of gold have  been taken away. Some parts of the  construction work, laborers actually  fight for, because of the chance of  striking a pocket. From one stretch  of the excavation less than 12 feet  long, samples of high grade ore were  taken, which in some instances showed assays of #900. The aqueduct  literally crosses placers of gold, and  also goes on through lodes.  All sorts of stories are to be heard  along the aqueduct regarding gold  finds, one being as to the luck of Patrick McCallum, a Los Angeles laborer, who cleaned up ��1,200.'  THE RIO TINTO  A meeting of the Boundary  Valley Lodge, No 38, I. O. O. F  was held at Greenwood on Tuesday evening.

Afler the installation a social  evening was enjoyed bv those  present and refreshments were  served.  The Imperial government, as well  as the Canadian authorities, is already  looking into the future defense of  Prince Rupert, and has sent Capt.  Hughes, of Workpoint barracks, and  Lieut. Haycock, of the Shearwater,  to inspect the new port from the  standpoint of defense. The mountainous country around Prince Rupert  offers facilities for strong fortification,  and a.s the new coast city is sure to  become an important shipping point  in the near future, there should be exact information in the hands of the  naval and military authorities regarding the possibilities of land and sea  protection. With Ksquimalt on Vancouver island, and a naval and military base at Prince Rupert, British  Columbia will be guardod, as it should  be, in time of war, and protected in  times of peace.

Saun-  TEN YEARS AGO  The Rio Tinto copper mine in  Spain is the world's greatest producer  of low priced copper, and has 140,-  000,000 tons of ore reserves, sufficient to last 70 years at the present rate  of production. During the last five  years the average yearly production  has been 76,000,000 pounds, and the  average cost of production 6.2 cents.  This mine has a nominal market value  of $139,250,000.

JULY 10,1909  WANTED���A PARENT  While Greenwood pos-esses few  attraction-*, from an amusement  and past-time point of view, it  has a race track and base ball  e-round within ibe city limits.  The fact i-*, there is a base ball  ground, enfeoced with good lumber, at the north end of towu,  and a race track, more or less  level, culminating in a grand  stand, roofless since tbe last wind  storm, and but grimly ornamental,  but neither Greenwood nor its  athletic and e.port-lovinft citizens  is tbe owner.  The Canadian Pacific Railway  company and the Wood estate  own the lots. Tliey were cleared  ?nd fenced some vears ago by enthusiast ir Green wood ites, members of the then existing Athletic  association and others, who put  up good hard cash, and harder  v/ork, to make the grounds suitable for base ball, cricket and  other games, and for races on  high days and holidays, but they  were cleared and fenced without  permission of either the owners  or their agents, and there's thc  rub.  Although the C. P. K. and the  Wood estate have not interfered  with the usage of the said lots,  they have every reason to expect  some return for thc fencing in  and periodical occupancy of their  premises. Taxes have to be paid  annually, and so far the Athletic  association, which, by the way.  is scattered to the four winds,  never pa ' any. :.ng, and we do  not wonder tliat the owners want,  either an agreement with some  responsible parties, athletic or  otherwise, for the use of the lots,  or to remove the lumbering fence  and ungainly grand Htnnd wreck  and to put their lots in good shape  to be sold if a customer should  appear on the scene.  In view of the times, and in  view of the improbability of base  ball and racing being extremely  fashionable this season, we would  not advocate the immediate formation of an athletic association  for the express purpose of entering into an agreement with the  owners to pay the taxes and a  nominal annual rent for thc  ground; but it would be distinctly  a loss to the town to have this attraction disbursed and abolished.  We would suggest that those who  are interested in out-door sports  form some organization of sport-  lovers, to see what can be done  in this regard.  It will be some little time before the waste from the Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel covers the  flat, iu spite of its progress, and  in the meantime, many a good  ball game and many a good race  may be witnessed in this town,  were the parentless race track  and ball ground in tbe bauds of  good sports as lessees.  Prospects on the Jackpot, in  Wellington camp, continue to improve and those familiar witb  the properly claim it will yet be  tbe British Columbia Copper company's premier mine.

PRICELESS PEACE  The town of Cobalt is crowded  with sight-seers to see the fire  ruins. Tents are springing up  on all sides.

North  Cobalt and all places within a  reasonable distance of the burnt  town are experiencing a land  boom. Cobalt is feeding and  housing about 1500 people in  tents and public buildings.  Lumbermen from all parts of  the United Slates, representing  interest that control lhe entire  timber wealth of the country,  will congregate at the Alafika-  Yukon-Pacific Exposition from  Monday, July 19 to Wednesday,  July 21.

Witb the Kaiser preaching to  tbe world his peaceful intentions,  the sincerity of which most of  his foreign congregation doubt,  and the fact that Eugland and  her colonies claim tbat they are  prepared for auy move that his  Warship may make, peace would  seem to be assured for awhile.  On the olher band, Germany is  building ships ns fast as the Kaiser is prearbing pacific sermons,  and England, whilo she is prepared for war, is making every  (ifTort to strengthen her present  efficiency and to cover up any  present weakness.  Is it true that to be prepared  for war is to insure peace? If so,  Germany needs no great navy.  Her colonies are infinitesimal in  importance or population, her  army is acknowledged to be superior to any other land force in  Europe and able to protect her at  home in any event; hence the possession of a huge navy, as planned  by the German nation, can only  be viewed as a challenge to Great  Britain, and invites hostilities thc  while thu Kaiser is pressing his  attentions to thc dove on every  occasion.  It has been said that the bog is  tho mortgage-raiser among our  farm slock, but while thc hog is  growing the little lieti buys groc-  crieH for the family, the carpets,  lace curtains, pictures and frills  tor the girls. The hog is all  right, but the hen is in the race,  with a strong chance that a fair  count would put her first.  Three miners were killed and  six others were seriously injured  in an explosion at Topaz, Utah  recently. The men were blown  to atoms by the explosion of 750  kegs of black powder. They  were working in a 35 foot tunnel  aud had just completed tamping  the charge. The powder was  connected with two wires, which  were to have been connected to  the battery on a bill quiet a distance away, A heavy thunder  storm came up and a flash of  lighting struck the wires, fusing  them, completing a circqit and  discharging the powder.  The old story about Sir William  Van Horn's telegram, which led  to the granting of a pass, when  he intended to refuse one, is paralleled by one tbat comes from  Madrid. The wife of a very rich  Mexican saw a diamond tiara in  Paris, which'she wanted to buy,  but hesitated about purchasing  because of tbe price, which was  $17,000. She telegraphed her  husband in Mexico, who answered:  "No. Price to high." When she  got the message it read: "No  price to high," and so she bought  one for $50,000. Her husband will  probably not economize on cable  tolls next time.  Copper  HANDBOOK.  (New Edition   issued March, 1908.)  Size :   Octavo.    Pages :   1228.  Chapters : 25.

Dale, for himself and others, who did considerable prospect and development  work and later sold the property  to an English syndicate represented by E. H. Thruston. It is  a free milling proposition and has  been extensively developed by the  present owners. The development consists of shafts, tunnels  and crosscuts. The vein is quart}:  4>�� to 5 feet in width, and carries values from $4.15 in gold and  5 ounces in silver to $350 in gold  and 66 ounces silver. Thc mine  is equipped with a 60 h. p. boiler,  a No. 3 hoist, a ten stamp mill  and cyanide tanks. Upwards of  SOU tons ol ore have beeu shipped,  while 3(J0 tons have been put  through the mill. Mr. E. 11.  Thruston left for England three  years ago, and since then no work  has been done on the ground,  although several substantial  offers have been made for the  property.

Gibson of Victoria   is   the  iventor of the latest aeroplane.  |t weighs only 222 pounds, and  le motor is said to develop 65  forse   power.   This   is   a third  pss weight than tbe Wright ma-  Ihine and 40 more hp. The feature  [f the Gibson aeroplane is that it  ies straight forward instead of  jideways. While other aeroplanes present their widest side to  le front, it presents the uarrow-  ���st.    A syndicate is being formed  ied to secure tbe patents and  luild the machines,  which,  the  lyeutor claims, can be bandied  ly anyone who can drive an automobile.    It is a single plane built  two parts, and is steered by a  adder with a wheel attachment.  kther than this wheel there is  jut one lever, which when pushed  irward elevates, and pushed  lack work depresses the car.    The  lachine is driven by eight  fouble-bl aded propellers, four on  ich   side   rotating in   contrary  Jirections, as bird's  wings move  contrary directions.    This,   it  claimed,   gives   a   more   even  jfcight with a minimum of vibrat-  -m. The frame is wood, canvas-  lovered, with steel braces. The  [eaviest part of the engine  aro  ie four   steel   cylinders   which  [ach weigh 12 pounds.    Trials of  model have proved most satis-  Jactory.    In   one   the  aeroplane  jus started  upside down,   auto-  latically righting itself before  toing-two feet.  GREENWOOD REBEKAHS  GREENWOOD THE HUB OF THE BOUNDARY.  Keep Both Eyes on Greenwood.

The service was  conducted by the Rev. V. Vernon  Venables, and was attended by a  large number of friends and relations.  The deceased was a most active and  energetic old gentleman, and when  not working in his son's store spent  a great part of his time fishing along  the banks of Boundary creek. He  was well known and well ljked by all  who knew him, and his sudde'n death  came as a shock to those friends, and  his children here, who knew how  well he was. Willie White, a younger son came from the coast to attend  the funeral.  In Memory of Our Father.  Another link is severed  From our family chain.

C., head of the Canadian constabulary along the border, stopped over in  Oroville, Wednesday night, on his  way to the front on business connected with his office. To meet the genial gentleman one would not imagine  for a moment that he is one of the  most efficient, and the most feared  man by the criminal classes, among  the sharp, active wide awake police  force of Canada. When he meets  on a social footing he throws off the  stern character of criminal hunter,  but when once on the trail there a e  none so persevering, none so untiring,  none so determined in the quest as  this man Bunliury. He knows . his  duty, and at all times and under all  circumstances he preforms it. He  has seen so much crime and had experience with so many criminals that  he has become case hardened, and  reverses the old conception of guiltiness by believing that every man un  der a cloud i.s guilty until he establishes  his innocence. Oool as an iceberg,  with nerves of steel and ignorant of the  word fear when he goes after a man,  and finds him, that man is a prisoner.  If any section of the country in the  department in which he serves gets  too tough for the local force to handle  they send out Bunbury, and he soon  straightens out matters to the discom-  forture and misery of the law breakers.  There is not much of him in pounds  and ounces, but what he lacks in  weight is made up in sand, and the  toughest citizen hunts his hole when  Bunbury hits hits track.--Oroville  Gazette.
