'*  GENERAL MINING  Work  on   the  Bruce mine at  Midway is progrttSiitfp atea-iily.  The Mrce at work on the E. P. U.  has encountered a chattft in tke  formation whieh it especially encouraging. The Diamend.Texas  too is said to be looking better  every day.  The movement to Gowganda,  the new silver district of Ontario,  has assumed large proportions,  and nuny sales af property are  reported- some at large igures.  A tract of 1000 acres has been  selected by tke government for a  townsite. and it it expected that  a branch of the government railway will be built through the  Gowganda district next summer.  In the Kaslo district arranger  meats are being made to consolidate a number of the silver-lead  properties adjacent to to the  Krao, and to drive a tunnel to  tap the ore at a depth of 1,200 ft.  By doing this the water problem  on these claims would be solved.  The Yankee Girl at Kaslo is  sacking 209 sacks of ore a day  aud has begun shipments to the  Northport smelter.  Another big Sheep Creek deal  has occurred in which J. L. Warner, tor eastern parties, took a  bond on the Columbia group from  J. G. Devlin, A. Poole, William  Waldie and H. Ames, for a large  consideration. Valuable sulphide  ore veins resembling that of tbe  Queen at the same camp, were recently struck on the Nevada claim  of the Columbia group. Warner  is tbe same man who recently concluded a deal with John. Mc Martin for the Kootenay Bell and the  Mother Lode. .   ,  Current quotations on Le Roi  Two carry with them the.-dividend  which has just* been declared and  which is payable on March llth.  The Lake Superior copper mines are at present producing at the  rate of 253,000,000 lbs. of refined  copper   per   annum, " as/ against  BRITISH COLUMBIA COPPER CO'S,  ANNUAL REPORT  217,000,000 lbs. a year ago. The  shipments of metal by rail contiu-  ue at a rate equal to present production and thcus-ii a falling off  in shipments bv rail is quite likely after the present month, the  local stocks of metal have been so  thoroughly cleaned up that tbe  opening ot navigation in April  will find considerab'e less copper  ou the docks than it saw a year  ago.���Miuing World.

Judgment for Plaintiff.  Mr. Justice Irving in the case  oi Barnes vs. B.C. Copper Co. has  delivered judgment in favor of  the plaintiff Barnes and has fixed  the damages to be paid at 14,500.  The action was for injuries received by the plaintiff while employed as a brakeman at tbe B.C.  Copper Co's smelter at Greenwood.  The unfortunate man was run  down by a motor while, hi's foot  was caught in a hole which bad  previously been covered by a bar  which bad been removed, and the  court held that the evidence ' had  established that the brakes on  the motor were not working pro-  perely as a. result of being worn:  down by work.

Dominion Copper Stockholders  As the plans just submitted bv  the Re-organization committee of  the Dominion Copper Co. look   to  us as offering to the stockholders  practically nothing   in   the new  companv for their; holdings in tbe  old company,we have taken steps  to procure a better offer for   the  stockholders,   than  the one just  submitted by the committee.  In' our opinion   the    present  stockholder is- wiped out without  he assents to the present pi an and  puts in mere money.    While this'  is often the case in mining companies who are heavily   in   debt  and whose   properties   have not  proven to be of   much  value, we  believe from what we   bave been  able to learn, that the Dominion.  Copper Company has a very good  property,   in   fact  a great many  people believe it   to   be equal to  tbe British Columbia Copper Co.,'  and in proportion to* its   size as  good as"the Granby.    It seems to  ns that a property the size cf the  Dominion Copper Co.,   with   its  own smelter and the   amount  of  money said to have bean expended  in the past to develop . its  mines  and equip. ther property, should  have  enough   intrinsic value to  offer the stockholders a much better plan than the one submitted.  It   is  our belief that tbe plan  submitted should be altered in at  least two very important partica.  lars ; First, that the power of  sale for less than $800,000 should  be restricted, and not permissable  after tbe plan of reorganization  has been accomplished, because  then the question of the second  sale should be left to the subscribers under such plan ; Second,  tbat there should be a larger issue of stock to the old stockholders, at least 40 or 50 shares instead of ten.    If the plan submit-  a��iPh��riiug.YYYY.  ted is not made   favorable to   us  ^"^^m'^aY   we would suggest a thorough examination of the properties by  competent and reliable engineers,  and if the report is a good one  tbat the stockholders combine and  form a syndicate and make a bid  for tbe properties of this company  for their protection.  We ourselves are stockholders  in this companv, and as we have  a great many clients wbo are interested in Dominion stock, we  feel it our duty to protect their  holdings as much as possible.and  we should be very glad to have  all stockholders sign below if they  are in sympathy with our ideas,  and will be interested in forming  a stockholders' protective committee.���F. W. Mason & Co., 53  State St., Boston, Mass.  ������Hot Air" President in B.C,  J. J. Warren of Toronto, president of the Spokane and British  Columbia railway, or "Hot Air  line." was in the Boundary last  week, accompanied by the company's solicitor, Mr. Beck of Re-  public. It is stated unofficially  that the right of way for the company's line from Republic te Spokane has been purchased and that  the construction of tbis piece of  road will shortly be undertaken,1  thereby connecting Spokane with  the Boundary by a direct route.'  Freight Reductions,  The new East and West bound  cl 'ass and cothmod ity rates between  the business centres of Eastern  Cauada and the. United States  and all Boundary points including  Greenwood, which became effective in Canada on February 8th  aud United States and Canadian  points on February 27th, show  considerable reduction in manv  classes of freight. Canoed goods,  all kinds, in car lots are reduced  20c per hundred lbs, and a reduction of 25c is shown on mixed cats  of eggs, butter and cheese. A reduction is also shown in 3rd, 4th  and Sth clasB rates.  Wrestling,  , Quite a number of those interested lh indoor athletics turned  out .to witness the: wrestling  match in the Aii'litn-iiim la��t  night between Frank Kilard, < f  Phoenix, and J.ick Calder, <f  Greenwood. The contest was fc r  he best two out of \taree or one  hour's wrestling, thumVu >'id ar.d  strangle-hold barred and was a  clean and gentlemanly exhibiti< n  ofthe manly sport of wrestling  Although greatly handicapped  by tbe superior weight and  strength of his opponen*. C-ilder  showed admirable grit and cleverness and was the aggressor during the greater part of the engagement which resulted in a  draw, each man winning one fall.  Hockey  The Phoenix-Greenwood hockey match on Tuesday night resulted in a score of 2-1 in favor of  Greenwood after 20 minutes'  play when as a result of a row  over a disputed goal the Phoenix  boys threw up tbe game and ungraceful lv retired.  The game, while it lasted, was  the fastest seen here.this season,  and tiie exhibition of cold-feet by-  the hill-team was greatly regretted by the spectators. Grand  Forks, plays Phoenix in the latter  town tonight for the championship of the Boundary.  Patrick Martin Keenoy is in  the- provincial gaol at Greenwood awaiting examination before a commission as to his sanity.  Patrick's particular hallucination  is an idea that agents of the  Southern Pacific are following  him with the intention of decollating him.  The Silver King'mine at Nelson is to be re-opened and a num-  ber of men are alreay employed in  getting things under way.

Fielding has an-  nuonced that his recent mission  to England and France has resulted in most satisfactory arrangements.  The Minister expressed satisfaction at the terms on which the  unusually large Canadian loan  had been arranged.  It is said that the G.T P. will  build from Fort George to Vancouver this year if the provincial  government will guarantee the  bonds.  Ralph Smith, M.P., has introduced an amendment to the Railway Act to applv the eight-hour  day to all telegraphers and despatches.  Tbe estimates brought down  by tbe provincial legislature contemplate an extraordinarily large  expenditure on public warks and  wauld indicate the near approach  of a general election for the province.  FRIDAT. FEBRUARY ��, 190��  Tbe annual budget speech of  Finance Minister Tatlow is an en-  coi.ragin(-r document, and the optimistic forecast?��� >f the province's  future are borne out by general  conditions.  The vast resources of British  Columbia in lumbering, mining,  agriculture, horticulture and  fisheries afford great room for  development, and it is a matter  of remark that the province  should be drained of millions of  dollars each year in the impar  tation of food-stuffs.  In the settlement of   tha unde-  . veloped areas ot   farm lands the  provincial  government has keen  anything but progressive.  The policy of handing over  large tracts of arable land to  speculative corporations has re  tarded the settlement of the country, and while the prairie lands  are given free to the actual settler it is not to be expected that  ''esirable immigrants will take  possession of British Columbia  ands under the conditions irapos-  :>oscd by tbe holders of these  ������rants.  T :������<������ -jest use that could be made  ������1 put of the surplus money in  the ������r--via-:ial treasury would be.  to survey the arable lands that  yet remain of the public domain  and place them in the hands of  the homesteader.  A conference between the fruit  growers of the province aud  C.P.R. officials will be held on  March 1st at Victoria.  The principal business of   the  meeting will be the discussion of  the representations of the fruitgrowers in favor ot a reduction of  the rates on fruit shipped   from  this province to the prairie country, the rates from interior points  to Vancouver,   the   general   improvement of tbe freight and refrigerator car service, as well as  the question of   the   competition  of American fruit.  Dr. Stressman, president of the  German-Canadian Economic as-  soc'ation, and a member of the  Reichstag, on behalf of the German government, savs; "Our relations with Canada have foT  some time past been the obj-ct oi  our most earnest attention.  There is no hindrance on the'  part of Germany to bringing  about an understanding which  will permit the entry of the product* of each land into the olher,  under favorable conditions. So  far steps taken for this purpose  have led to no result. I cheiish.  however, the hope that once  again the Canadian market will  be made accessible to Germany  and the German market to Canada."'

This would ensure the licensing  committees being in sympathy  with tbe popular view.

Here is just one illustration of the  wisdom of keeping a box of Zam-Buk  always handy. It a true record of the  varied uses to which thia great balm  was put���with highly satisfactory result in every case���in just one family  and during a few month only. Mrs. C  J. Irlatn, of 907, William Avenue, Win  nipeg, makes the report as follows:���  " I have found Zam-Buk so very use  ful ar a household balm that I want to  make its merits still more widely known  Some eight weeks ago my brother, Mr..  C Proctor happened serious accident,  While at work, a ruaty nail penetrated  the palm of bis right hand. The rust  ofthe nail poisoned the fllesh and inflammation set in quickly. He went to  the General Hospital and consulted a  a doctor, who advised poulticing to  draw ont the poison. This was applied  but when there was no improvement  af I er a few days, I beg applying Zam-  Buk Datm, leaving of poulticies.  " The effects was almost magical!  Zam-Buk soothed the pain, drew out the  poison, and allayed all inflammation.  Bealing then commenced, and in a few  days he was able to sesutne work.  " Six weeks ago my husbahd, Mr. C.  J. Irlatn, while returning from work  quiet lrte in {he evening, was bitten by  a dog, the dog's teeth penetrating the  flesh on his thigh just above the knee  Direckly he came home Zam-Buck  was applied to the wound, and in a few  days the soreness was gone and the  wound thoroughly   healed.  "A third instance ofthe healing pow  er of Zam-Buk was provided when my  little boy had a nasty fall. He is five  years old, and was playing one day  when he fell. His head struck on a  sharp stone, which cut a nasty gash.  As soon as I had, washed xhe cut I ap-  Zoin-Buk in the usual way, and it was  really wonderful ��� how quickly it relieved the little fellow's pain. Within a  week the cut���a deep one���was quiet  healed.  Every mothee who once proves the  all-round value of Zam-Buk will ne.er  aOain be without it."

Then why does not  everybody *ake 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  FERROL  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of tbe Oil)  and is richer  in oil than any other  emul>ion,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,  ind 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 of any kind of  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  ������You Know What  Vou Take"  BOVRIL  the kitchen  economist  ThejJManitoba Daily Free Press  and The Boundary Creek Times  Twelve Months for  Send us $3.00 aad receive the Greatest Western Daily  and The Times, witn all the News of the Boundary for  a whole year.
