The Boundary Mining and Exploration Co., Ltd., with headquarter in Spokane, and whose  holdings are located near Midway have issued the following  letter to shareholders which is  of general interest to the public:  -At a conference of directors it  w.as decided to advise all of the  stockholders in the Boundary  Mining and Exploration Co that  the development work has now  reached such a stage that we are  in a position to begin permanent  equipment with working sliaft  and hoist.  The work so far accomplished  has developed our No. 3 vein and  we are now in coal on drifts and  shafts about 500 feet. In order  to work this vein on an economical plan, our engineer has advised that we sink a shaft and equip  the mine with hoist, tipple and  other machinery of a permanent  character to enable us to ship the  coal in commercial quantities.  lie will locate the shaft at a  point where it will be possible to  intercept the other six veins  which are known to exist on our  propertp. all of which are of larger dimensions than thoso already  developed, and this will enable  us to use the working shaft as  our outlet for all the veins for  some years to come.  Our engineer has been instructed to proceed with this work at  once, and we may confidently  look forward to the shipment of  coal in the near tuture.  At the completion of this work  the value of our stock should be  at the par value on one dollar per  share. After March 1st, 191L, no  stock can be procured for less  than 50c per share.  Any further information desired will be promptly furnished by  addressing F. L. Smith, secretary-treasurer, 223 Paulsen building, Spokane, Wash.  I  �����  A simple but cordial farewell was given Rev.  Father Bedard last Sunday in the Catholic church  on the occasion of. his departure for the coast.  The congregation was more numerous than on  ordinary Sundays, many having come from afar,  not withstanding the cold, to wish Godspeed to  their pastor.  Father Bedard celebrated Mass, and in well  chosen words, gave his hearers a clear and concise sketch of what they ought to do in order to  .insure the prosperity of the parish and the maintenance of the Christian spirit in their home.  After  Mass a delegation  came.forward and  presented Father Bedard with  a handsome purse  of $225.00 and read the following address:  "To the Rev. Father Julian Bedard, O. M. I.  on the occasion of his departure from Greenwood.  "Dear Reverend Father:���  "The news of your departure from our midst  came as a great shock to your parishoners of  Greenwood, and brought feelings of deep sorrow  to their hearts.  You have been our pastor and friend for the  past ten years, and during that time, we say it  without offence to your well known modesty, you  2 have accomplished wonders, both here and in the  district. Our congregation at Greenwood has indeed experienced the vicissitudes which are the lot  of every industrial center where there is a floating  population; but one thing which has always remained unchanged, is your zeal for our spiritual  welfare.  "You leave behind yoiu Dear Reverend Father, a neatly adorned and very comfortable little  church, a splendidly equipped hospital, in the establishment of which you had the chief part; and  a fine residence* which many a larger parish would  like to possess. We are indebted to vou for all  .these things, and Dear Reverend Father, we feel  our loss very keenly, and we assure you tbat we  shall keep your remembrance in our. hearts for  years to come.  As -a token of appreciation and esteem for  yourself and of gratitude for your labors in our  behalf, we beg you to accept this purse.  "We know that ill health only .could have  separated you from us even for a moment, we will  therefore bid you good-bye, but not forever; we  look forward with pleasure to the time when  obedience will send you back to our midst.  "���May you enjoy a most needed rest and return to us with renewed strength and vitality. On  behalf of your parishoners and friends of Greenwood, we shall ever be  Affectionately yours in Christ,  C. J. McArthur,       J. B. Desrosiers,  Portman Bros. Chas. Gauvreau,  A. A.

Officers of Canadian and American express companies have announced a reduction in through  rates soon to take effect between  all offices of the United States  and many of Canada. All of the  important express companies are  included in the reduction.  The announcement states that  a decision was reached by the  principal express companies that  is of far-reaching importance.  Instead of two companies which  may handle an express package,  making a separate charge on each  line, the charge will be the same  as if one company had carried  the package from shipping point  to destination. Necessary details  are uow being perfected, and as  soon as legal requirements are  complied with this plan for  through service at through rates  will then take effect genoral ly between all express ofhees in the  United States.  No. 21  WHEAT MAY GO  ON FREE LIST  A Report That Reciprocity  Treaty Will Include  Free Wheat.  The whole of Canada from the  Atlantic to the Pacific is much  exercised about a report from  Washington that wheat will be  put ou the free list by the trade  treaty which has just concluded  but which is being* kept a secret  by both the governments of the  United States and Canada. The  report is not definite but the  rumor is sufficiently verified to  get the Dominion to talking.  The free entry of Canadian wheat  into the United States was one  of the big things asked by the  farmers' delegation thejother day.  Canadian millers on the other  hand are not favorable on tbe  whole. Robert Meighen of the  Lake of the Woods Milling Co.  is reported from Montreal as saying: "Free wheat would be the  most disastrous catastrophe that  could happen to this country."  Sir Wilfrid Laurier said that all  power -was in the hands of Messrs.  Fielding and Paterson in Washington, and wbo would disclose  the Washington negotiations on  their return to Ottawa.  ial and affable 'Judge.' Many  have cause to remember the  kindly help and generous benefactions of lhe deceased, and his  courteous mien won a host of  friends.  Red   Cliff���Superintendent  A.  D. McPhee states  that  the lonj*  unnel is in  over 1450   feet,   and  hat in a distance of 1400 feet fin  upraise  has been started   to connect with the upper workings.  There are at present six henw  teams and crew of men busilv c- -  gaged in stripping the surface at  the Napoleon mine when* the  glory hole will be started a-- -*oon  as the raise is completed, sav* '1 e  Orient Journal. They hav,* ?.���,--  covered a vast body of oxidized  ore which will be treated in the  cyanide mill when it is com*>leted.  At present all the ore being mined  is of a sulphide character, which  is shipped to the company's smelter at Greenwood.  The Spokane Chronicle s��vs  that the Belcher mountain country, between this city and Republic, has received a new impetus  through the reported purchase of  the Copper Key by thc Granby interests. The Key is on the samt*  vein as the Belcher and the. Blue  Bell. It hasvalrendy shipped extensively under the management.  of E. L. Tate, of Spokane.    The  Itis understood by both gov- 'I Granby companv. it is said, already has a rrr-w of men nn 11n-  ground surveying nnd  prepariiu-  ernments that the trade treaty is  to be kept a secret uutill after  parliament has been informed of  the exact nature of the negotiations.   ! MINES AND MINING!  �� ��  ����������**0��0**����0*��wr��**����*����  Another rich strike oi lead-galena ore three to four feet wide is  reported from the Standard mine  at Silverton.  In seven years the St. Eugene  concentrator at Moyie bas turned  out over ten million dollars' worth  of ore concentrates. And this is  not counting the crude ore shipped from the mine. These figures give some idea of the production of Moyie's' big mine.  te build a tramway to get the ore  down to the railroad!'  The Argo Tunnel company  have penetrated into a large  ledge of silver copper ore. in their  boring, which has cruise very  jubilant feeling among the shareholders. We* trust it is the old  adage verified everlastingly keeping at it has brought success.  It is stated that there are 300,-  000 tons of gold-copper ore available at the B. C. Copper company's Lone Star mine.  Father Bedard, in a few heartfelt words,  thanked them for the sentiments expressed:  "During these ten years I haavebeen working  amongst you, " he said, "I never had any ill feeling against any one. I leave no enemy behind, and  I may say that during all this time I never had  any,  He wished to thank in a special manner all  his friends of Greenwood who could not be present. He said he had done only his duty to all. irrespective of creed, nationality or position, and he  was glad to see that he had the sympathy of all,  He accepted the present as a remembrance of bis  friends of Greenwood.  000<KX>(X>00<X)-DOOO<>00<>OOOOOOX)<>0<><KK)<>00��0<>^^  The eighth furnace at tbe  Granby smelter was blown in on  Monday and about 3,600 tons of  ore per day have been smelted  during the latter part of lant  week.  The British Columbia Copper  company's smelter treated 1^2,215  tons of ore last week as follows:  Mother Lode, 6,802; Jack Pot,  591; Rawhide, 4,350; Napoleon,  472.    The promoters of the Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel are applying for incorporation of tlie  Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway  Co., limited, with power to run a  tunnel under the mountain from  Greenwood to Phoenix.  The Great Northern railway  has put another ore train between  Grand Forks and Phoenix, there  now being two trains per d.tv  steady. These trains are run l>v  Conductors W. F. Smith and A.  C. Uren and Engineers Dan Fleming and George Knox, all old and  reliable employees of the company.

Burns &  Co., announced on his arrival in  Vancouver from the east that, on  account of the hard winter in Alberta and consequent rise in the  price of hay and other fodder, the  price of beef would make a material advance in the near future.  Pork and mutton will also move  up the scale, but not to,such a  a great extent as beef.  Subscribe for the B. C. Times.  Black Death  England is becoming seriously  alarmed over the accumulating  evidence that the "Black Death"  has secured a firm foothold in the  country. It is not alone that the  rats all over tbe island are unquestionably thoroughly infected,  it is beginning to be clear now  that many men, women and children have died of the disease, their  illness simply having been wrongly diagnosed by the attending  physicians.  The Phoenix Mining, Smelting  and Development company is said  to have sold additional stock to  the value of $13,500. which will  be used in the further development of the company's Woodburn  property in Wellijgton camp.  It will be good news to Ross-  landers that the Granby company  is preparing to start shipments nf  of ore from the ClitF mine to their  smelter at Grand Forks. Already  a small force of men is busy putting the road around the mine in  good order for heavy traffic, and  tbe ore will be taken to the spur  on the Great Northern railway  near Hunter's warehouse. Arrangements for the haulage of  the ore will doubtless be entered  into with a local firm. It is hop-  that tbe shipments will be made  regularly.- -Rossland Miner.  G. C.

J 00  Sn Month*    '-15  To Fo-fKitin Coonti-ibi -  2 50  Friday; January 27,1911  Regulation of Coal Mines.  In the bill to consolidate and  amend the Coal Mines Regulations bill, which was introduced  in the legislature last week by  the premier at Victoria, several  changes having been made as  compared with the draft measure  which was submitted * vear ago,  and which was then distributed  widely throughout the province  in order to ascertain, the yiews of  those interested in the subject of  coal mines. The department has  during tbe lecess made every effort to ascertain the views of  those engaged in tlie coal mining  industry and thc bill presented  last wtek imbodies many important suggestions from operators and em pi lives. I i s >me cases  itwas fouud that the views of  operators diverged widely from  those of employef, and in these  instances the department has endeavored to steer a middle course,  keeping in mind always that the  great object is to wecure the safety   of life and property.  In the interpretation clauses of  tbe bill one or two changes have  been made. A definition ot the  term "shaft" has been limited to  perpendicular excavations thru  the strata. And definitions haye  been added for "slope or iucline,"  "tunnel or level," and "openings." TUe definition of the  term "fireman   or   fire  Irss"   is  altered to limit the duties of such  official .to lli* working parts of  the mine.  In the clause with reference to  the employment of boys the  change is made so as to provide  that persons having charge of  anv engine or machinery used for  conveying passengers must not  be less tban 22 years of age, instead of 18; while the person in  charge of the engine or machinery used for conveying material  used for moving material must  not be less than 18 years of age  instead of 12. Also a person in  charge of any machinery used  for couveyiug persons in any  mine must be possessed of a medical certificate that he is mentally  and physically fitted to perform  his duties, and must obtain a renewal of such certificate every  six months.  Power is given to postpone in  any mine or class of mine the be-  ginnfng of payment by weight  and to revoke or order from time  to time the order of payment by  weight.  No person employed in or about  a mine is to be allowed to remain  under ground /or the purpose of  employment or for any other purpose for a longer period than 8  hours from bank to bank in any  one calendar day of 24 hours.  Any person who pays or receives  payment for work performed in  excess of 8 hours in 24 shall be  liable to a fine of one hundred  or manager, and if he is any  other person, ten dollars for each  offense. The attorney general's  department, ruled that under tbe  existing act a person might be  under ground for more than 8  hours and if he was not employed he was not violating the act.  This ruling made it extremely  difficult for inspectors to secure  convictions, hence the change.  The provision, of course, does not.  apply in cases of accident.  The Third Degree.  Organized labor in the United  States is called upon to exert its  influence to secure legislation  forbidding the alleged use by  police authorities of the "third  degree" io secure confessions from  prisoners, in a letter sent out  from the national 'headquarter of  the American Federation of Labor at Washington and which  has been received by the trades  councils of the various cities.  The letter, which is signed by-  Samuel Gompers, president of the  Federation of Labor, describes  the practices as having no warrant for its existence "except the  brute power of barbarism derived  therefrom," and declares that its  practices on the part of tbe po  lice is unsurpation that must be  stopped. '  Scotland Going Dry.  An unprecedented state of affairs prevails in the distilling industry ol Scotland. It has been  announced that the North British  distillery is to be closed down.  This makes the fourth large grain  distillery which has ceased opera  tious in Scotland during the last  month or two. It foreshadows  that other distilleries will be  closed permanently. The situation is unusual aud shows the.  force of the strong temperance  sentiment which is sweeping that  country.  LIFE  We plough the field, we plant the seed,  We labor many a day  To cultivate the (-rowing crop  And keep the weeds away.  We toil throu  summer's sultry heat,  With weariness and pain,  And then some trickster comes along  And gathers in the grain!  We save our dollars one by one,  With old New England thrift,  We gather up a horde at last  (The process isn't swift),  And then we take it to the place  Where brokers "put" and "call,"  We buy some lovely gilt-edged stocks,  And so we lose it all.  It makes no odds how hard we try,  Or work with hands and wit,  There's always some one standing by  To grab the benefit.  Still, it's your part to do your best  And labor like a man;  But watch the shysters mighty close,  \   And beat them, if you can!  SUSPECT CAUGHT  Arrest  of Man in British  Columbia May Clear Bell-  ingham, Mystery.  How To Stop   A   Stubborn Cough  We don't mean just stop the irritation in your throat���^but cure the  underlying cause.  Cough syrups cannot do this. It  takes a constitutional tonic body  builder to do the work properly���  and cure you to stay cured. Yinol  is the remedy you need.  HERE IS PROOF  Mr*. Jtllnule Osgood, of Glenn Fall*,  N. Y., write*':-" After trying severalrein-  edieB for a bad cough aud cold without  benefit, 1 wan asked to try Vinol. Ik  worked like magic. It cured my cold  aud cough aud I gained iu health aad  strength. I consider Vinol tha most  wonderful toulc and invlgorator I aver  saw."  If we cannot stop that cough  with VINOL���our delicious cod  liver and iron tonic���which is made  without oil���w-e will not charge  you a cent for the medicine you  buy. This seems like a pretty fair  proposition���and ought to be accepted. Don't you think so? With  this understanding we ask you to  try a bottle of VINOL.  J. L White, Druggist, Greenwood  Unjustly Accused.  Andrew Carnegie, at a dinner  in New York, talked about the  Scotch dialect.  "It's a hard lingo to understand, he said. "It often causes  awkard mistakes.  "Once an American divine  spent Christmas in a Highland  inn. On Christmas morning he  gave the maid a tip of a sovereign, and he said, looking earnestly at her���tor she was a pretty  maid���  " 'Do you know. Kathleen, you  are a very good looking lassie?'  "Of course, Kathleen was  pleased, but, being modest, she  blushed like a rose and answered:  "'���Ah, na! Ah, na! But my  kissm', sir, is beantiful!"  "The divine frowned.  '" 'Leave the room, you wicked  young baggage'.'  he said sternly.  "He didn't know, you see, th'at  modest Kathleen had been simply praising in her Highland dialect the superior charms of her  cousin Janet of Peebles."'  Bellingham, Jan. 23.���That the  authorities will soon be given information which will tend to clear  up the mystery surrounding the  identity of "Slim," the murderer  of Judge A. A. Galbraith of  Acme, who was shot and killed  on January 5, is the belief of  Sheriff Thomas and deputies engaged in running down the escaped outlaw.  Mrs. Kelley, tbe proprietress of  the Grays Harbor lodging house  at Sedro-Woolley, said that Chas.  Robinson, who mortally wounded W. B. Stevens at the same  time that Judge Gnlbraith met  his death, had told her daughter  who "Slim" was, in addition to  other information concerning the  mau which might tend to great-  ily aid the officers in their search.  Yesterday a man answering the  description of "Slim" was arrested at New Westminister, British  Columbia He was brought to  this city and will bo taken before  Mrs. Kelley at Sedro-Woolley for  indentifixation. It was at the  lodging houso operated by Mrs.  Kelley that some one engaged a  room for Robinson prior to his  capture. Conflicting stories have  been told regarding the identity  of this man. Mrs. Kelley declared she believed him to be  "Slim." Robinson says it was a  "logger friend."  STRIKES BONANZA.  Eight Feet of Ore Uncovered in Wilderness of  British Columbia.  A   deposit   of   silver-lead   ore  running approximately $85 to the  ton has been located bv John Ab  leson of Victoria in the Quamich-  an district, some   miles from Ko  ksilah.  Ableson says his discovery is  situated near the headwaters of  the river of that name and is  eight feet in width.  He encountered the ledge while  prospecting about five weeks ago.

A turn of  the lever instantly changes the draft so the fire is quickened  or checked, at will. Turned on, McClary's Magnet Wood*  Furnace produces the strongest heat in a few minutes; and  the nickelled steel tubes radiate this heat for hours after  the draft is shut off. Because of this stored heat McClary's  Magnet Wood Furnace is economical and a continuous roaring fire is unnecessary. The heat that goes up the smoke pipe  bf ordinary wood furnaces, goes into the register pipes of the  Magnet. Like the position of the damper, the Magnet Wood  Furnace is right all through.

The mortgage deed of All  Saint's Church, Cedar Cove, was  last week, at a well-attended,  meeting held in tbe church, consigned to the flames by Venerable  Archdeacon Pentreath.

He led his hearers  through the history of the parish  to the time of the redemption of  the mortgage, The handsome  gift of $1500 by a ��� well known  lady of the parish settled the fate  of the mortgage. The final payment of the debt was made, when  gl870 was tendered in settlement  of the loan. The vicar, Rev. H.  C. L. Hooper, presided at the  meeting.  There is nothing new under the  sun.

If the temperature of an authors popularity can be measured by the thermometer of sales, then surely the most popular writer in Canada is Miss Marshall  Saunders, whose "Beautiful Joe" has sold 400,000 copies, and been translated  into Swedish, German and Japanese.  At hur grandfather's house in Milton, Nova Scotia, Miss Saunders was bom  in ISiJl, the daughter of a clergyman, and a descendant of the John Alden immortalized iu verse by Longfellow. Her early days were spent in the beautiful  land of Evangeline where the very air seems redolent of romance and historic memories. When she was six the family moved to Halifax, and there she received the  foundation of her education in private and public .schools until fifteen, when she  was sent to a boarding school iu Scotland and tbence to France to put some finishing touches to lie*- education.  On hor return to Nova, Scotia she taught school for a time and then drifted  into literature. Her first short story brought forty dollars, but she soon realized  that real success could not be plucked like a rose in a garden; ahe must pay the price  in years of observation, study, training and practice. She spent several years in  foreign travel, as a post-graduate course in experience, and then returned to N'uva  Scotia, ready for the serious work of her life.  In 1801 tlie American Humaue Educational Society offered a prize of S'J(H)  for the best story illustrating kitr-lness to dumb animals. 'Miss Saunders determined  to eoim-ete for it. Shi- spent si\- months in writing a story, the background of  which was largely autobiographic and the spirit pervading it her own intense love  for animals, the "silent anneal of their helplessness iinding ever a sympathetic ��(im  in lier heart. The committee of award in giving the prize to her book " li.aul:*i:l  Joe," said: "the author ha.-, genius, heart and insight. It is an admirable Mo:v  und should- have an immense sale and become a standard for all libraries. :������<:<>  yet  this SW.-I.I, svmt.:;:l.,.tie study of dog lite, despite  its splendid  endoi.-.-m. ��� '  v/.-it.   1  ������elan.
