Outline of the Plans of the Organization and Description of the  Midway Coal Property.  The Boundary Mining; and Exploration Company, Limited, is incorporated under the "Companies'  Act, 1897," as a limited company,  having a capital of one million dollars in shares of one dollar each. Of  the capital stock 740,000 shares are  in the treasury, and 40,000 shares of  this treasury stock are now  offered to  acres, recently sold for a mill site.  An extension of the Canadian Pacific  railway from Midway runs the length  of Lot 637, its present terminus being immediately below the working  tunnel on the property.  The following distances to points  where there is a good market for the  output of the mines will  give an idea  the public to provide funds for the development of the coal properties of  the company- situated about two-and  one-quarter miles west of Midway,  B. C. The company owns 538  acres, more or less, of land oh the  Kettle river, at the point of the coal  discovery, some of this acreage being  fruit land of the first quality. The  company further owns certain mineral  claims and interests in claims which  are considered valuable, and which  will, in time, be developed sufficiently  to be bonded, or sold. It also holds  options on a large number of mines,  mineral claims and timber limits which  are being handled by representatives  of the-company at various points in  the east.  Jt is not proposed to become an  operating company, but rather to act  along the lines of exploration and development, with the view of proving  the values of properties in order to  sell or bond them profitably. In this  province there are great opportunities  for an organization doing business  along these lines, there being many  instances where the expenditure of a  few hundred dollars will increase the  value of a property ten fold. In this  work we are aided by an intimate  knowledge of local and general conditions. We are very conservative in  our operations and have thus far been  able, while adding materially to our  holdings, to keep the balance well on  the right side of the ledger.  The purpose of the present offering of stock is to provide funds for  the development of the coal properties of the company, situated west of  Midway. Only the amount of stock  mentioned in this prospectus will be  sold for the purpose, and we believe  that stock will be at least doubled in  value as soon as we begin our coal  shipments.  LOCATION.  The coal mines are situated on  Lots 422 and 637, in die Similkameen  (formerly OrSoyoos) division of Yale  district.' The lots are owned by the  company, with the exception  of ten  from coal samples from this seam return 66% carbon, 31% volatile matter  and 3% ash. This one seam, if found  of fair width in the tunnel, should  return several times the amount received from the outstanding stock of  the company up to the present time.  OTHER  SHOWINGS.  There are surface indications of  five other coal seams on the company's property. Their extent and  value is as yet entirely problematical,  as no development work has been  done on any of them. It is proposed  to prove the property by drilling at  various points in the flat below the  present workings.  OTHER   HOLDINGS.  The company has staked three  square miles of land to the west of  their ground and proposes, as soon as  the necessary authority is received  from the government, to drill the land  thoroughly. Surface coal is already  located at one point on this acreage,  and the general indications are ail-that  could be desired. The company also  holds under options approximately  three square miles additional, extending west. At two points on this optioned ground coal has already been  proven.  IN GENERAL.  The directors of the company believe that the stock now offered by  them is an investment that is speculative only to a small degree, while the  possible profits are very large. They  can promise an honest and conservative administration of the affairs of  the company. That they have the  confidence of the people "of their locality is indicated by the list of stockholders, all of this vicinity.  I. O. O. R INSTALLATION  of the exceedingly favorable situation:  Midway, 2 X miles.    . ;.-  Greenwood; IT maes?'''  Grand Forks, 28 miles.  B. C. smelter, 10'miles.  New Dominion smelter, 7 miles.  Granby smelter, 28 miles.  Republic, Wash., 38 miles.  Spokane, Wash. ,17-1 miles.  In addition to the above there are a  large number of cities and towns  which are comparatively close at hand  and where the demand for .coal for  domestic and steam purposes . is very  large.  WORK DONE.  The following development work  has been done on the property:  Fifty-foot tunnel on the outcrop,  cutting the seam matter throughout:  Thirty-six-foot shaft, drift and incline, all in seam matter.  Eighty-foot shaft and incline, following the seam between well defined  walls which shows no signs of a break  of any character  Working tunnel from the flat be  low the coal showings which will  crosscut the proven seam at a vertical  depth of about 150 feet. This tunnel is now in about ninety, feet and is  being rapidly pushed to completion.  The initial work, as may be seen,  was done for the purpose of proving,  at the smallest possible expense, the  existence of a considerable body of  the coal. The working tunnel now  being driven will give approximately a  mile of drifting ground irq the main  seam, besides proving the nature of  other seams which show on the surface. The entrance of this tunnel is  sufficiently high above the flat to allow  a gravity tram to be constructed to the  railroad, distant about 500 feet, or a  short spur may be built to the tunnel  entrance.  THE NUMBER ONE SEAM.  The seam varies in the surface  workings between five and ten feet in  width. It is fair to assume that at  least a five-foot seam will be found at  depth, a width most satisfactory for  economical  working.    Assays   made  THE FRECHETTE  ATTACHMENT CO.  The Frechette attachment" company, now being organized to acquire  the patents issued or applied for by  A. A. Frechette, of this city, will  have a capital of $10,000, in ten  thousand shares of -$1 each. The  company is composed of local business men, who intend to manufacture  the inventions of Mr. Frechette, a  steel horse collar guard, and a novel  metal snap for use in harness, and  put them on the market throughout  Canada. American patents are being applied for. It is understood that  the Canadian company will acquire  an Interest in the American patents.  Much local interest is being manifested in the ingenious inventions of  Mr. Frechette, who is an old time  Greenwood citizen.  JANUARY 19  THE RIVERSIDE  SOLD EOR CASH  On Tuesday evening last, Boundary Valley lodge No. 38, 1. O.O. F.,  held an installation of officers in their  spacious lodge room on Government  street. The following Grand' officers  were present: D. D. G. M. F.  McDougal, P. G.; G. M.W. Cook,  PVa5 G.YW.yYWS.YB. Fleming,  P. G ��� G. R. ���&������ J. L. White, P. G.;  G. F. S., A. Logan, P.'G.-; Grand  Treasurer, W. McfCague, P. G.  The following oflicers of the lodge  were   installed:    N.    G.,   Fred  B.  Holmes, P.   G.;   V.   G. F. Edward  Brown, P. G; Rec. Sec, A.

G.; Outside Guardian, W. Elson,  P. G.    At the close  of a very pleasant evening refreshments were served  by the Rebekahs.    There were many  visitors present from other I. O.O.F.  lodges  in the  neighborhood.     The  Odd Fellows of  Greenwood are a  splendid  representative  organization,  doing good on  every  side,   and the  local lodge has a membership of 109,  with several applications for membership in hand.    The total assets of the  order in Greenwood is in the ncigh-  bothood of $10,000, a great record,  and  one   that the Greenwood Odd  Fellows are justly proud of.   On next  Tuesday evening the  initatory degree  will be conferred on three candidates.  Hoot Mon! The Musical Highlanders are scheduled to give one  performance at the Auditorium  Wednesday evening, January 19  This promises to be one of the  most delightful eyents of the  season, and if the Highlanders  prove to be one -half as good as  the reputation they have established in other localities would  seem to indicate, ib is a foregone  conclusion that a rare treat is ln  store for local amusement lovers.  The company embraces both vocal and instrumental artists as  well as comedians, sketch artists  and a lady humorist and character impersonator. Prominent  among the companv are the two  Strangs, the well known vocalists  and delineators of Scotch character. Miss Strang is said to possess one of the best contralto  voices ever heard on the concert  stage, while her brother, Archie,  has attained distinction as a singing comedian. The various members are* handsomely and appropriately costumed, and to say that  the company is deserving of liberal support at the hands ot  amusement lovers is merely to  emphasize the belief that there is  a large aad legitimate field for  organization's of the Highland  type, which align themselves  squarely on the side of respectability and decency, without losing  any of tbeir merit. The Highlanders will play under the auspices of the Curling club.  U.  i  HOCKEY SCHEDULE  Jan.   1, Phoenix and Green wood, at Phoenix..

Thompson of  Morrin & Thompson and many  other business men of our thriving neighbor town, have bought  the well known Riverside claim,  the property of the Perkins estate  for $2100.00 cash. William Perkins, a brother of the late Ben  Perkins, the original owner, sold  tbe claim to the new owners.  Some of the members of the purchasing syndicate are owners of  Badger, an adjacent property,  and it is understood that the two  claims will  be worked   together.  NEW CITY OFFICERS  Greenwood is indeed fortunate  in being spared the disturbing  excitement of a municipal election to say nothing of the expense. The following nominations for mavor, aldermen and  school trustees were filed at the  city hall on Monday last, and resulted in election by acclamation:  Duncan Mcintosh, mayor, nominated by S. P. Dixon and H. McCutcheon; aldermen for South  ward, Hugh McKee, nominated  by D. Mcintosh and D. A. McDonald; James Sutherland, nominated by C. A. Demsev and D.  Mcintosh; Sanford P.

The Colonial Tourists have  with them the famous Queen  City Quartette, and the three  comedians E. C. Hunt, Montie  Collins and Charlie Rice, whose  names above are enough to ensure many a laugh.

ASSOCIATIONS  How large a part association  plays in our lives, what an influence it bears on our going and  coming. The old home, where  we spent our childhood, the little  stream where the first small fish  attached itself to the first email  line we sported, all the instances  of boyish happiness, all the small  cares and worries and early heartaches are recalled, often in some  far off land, in maturer years, by  some little token kept sacred and  preserved, taken care of for its  association sake, and when viewed,  reviving memories of home and  all that word meant, and still  means, to us all. A. faded photo,  treasured throughout the years,  packed away carefully on each  departure for new fields, can  bring the tears and smiles with  its peculiar association of childhood churns or school day pals,  and a little piece of ribbon, the  colors of the dear old school reminds one of the then- long-  seeming ages of school life, so  full of episode, so crammed with  play, adventure, discipline and  work, Then, too, there is the  program of the first grown up  ball we attended, cracked with  age, and illegible, but it  breathes of the first flutter into  the arena, the first peep at the  larger world, the farewell to the  old home, or the advent at college. Amongst all the old treasures of college days, perhaps  only an ink-smeared flyleaf of a  work we have long lost, a book,  a pamphlet perhaps, tbat at the  time was discussed in our rooms,  where we held sweet communion  with other keen Bpirits of our  college days���dear associations���  hundreds of them, all rush back,  life in the dim receding past is  lived again, days of eager endeavor, of such promise, flood  the memory at the sight of some  little token hoarded with the rest.  Not last, or least, is the lock of  hair of mother, sweetheart, wife  or child���all gone long since���tied  with a poor, frayed ribbon, bound  with her own dear hand. What  does it mean? Life and love and  the old days, everything that was  or is worth while���the sweetest  associations of all the many  such���speaking again the kiud  sweet words, loving thoughts  of years ago. No letters can renew our youth, or bring tears,  or smiles, as some such token  saved from the wreckage of the  toil and moil of life, with all  their inner hidden meanings and  reminders of what we were. So  much is callous, so much is hard  that these little treasures must  be kept and looked at from time  to time to sweep away the growing bitterness in life and the  sordid grind for our daily bread.  And when we ourselves must go  in due course, far from the old  scenes, far from the old friendships, perhaps if we have kept  the little things, with the associations attached, that mean  so much to us, others may treasure some little thing that will remind them of the short moments  when our life circle intersected  their life circles, and made, it is  to be hoped, a little more sunshine or a few less tears, for love  of association is love of others���  and that is all that is worth  while.  OUTLINES OF  CURRENT EVENTS  See the Rajah tonight.  Osoyoos lake is frozen over.  Cobalt shipped  30,000   tons of  ore during 1909.  Hosmer beat Blairmore New  Year's night at hockey by 4 goals  to 1.    It was fifty below at Brandon  and 36 below at Winnipeg last  week.  Vancouver will adopt an up-  to-date automatic telephone  system.  Revelstoke -will send a strong  hockey team to take part in the annual Rossland Carnival matches.  Antoine Lamphrone, who died  at Kamloops on Christmas Eve.  is believed to have been British  Columbia's oldest inhabitant���  certainly the oldest white man  in the province. He was 111 at  the time of his decease. He had  himself lost all count of the passage of years, but cherished an  old, old family Bible, in which  the fact was recorded of his birth  on March IS, 1798.  THE COMET  Have you a weak throat? If so, you  cannot be too careful. You cannot  begin treatment too early. Each cold  makes you more liable to another, and  the last is always harder to cure. If  you will take Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy at the outset you will be saved  much trouble. Sold by all druggists  and dealers.  ANEW NICKEL ALLOY  Governor Henderson of the  Yukon, says that quartz mining  is going to be a success in that  country. ���  Russia is offering the northern  half of the Island of Saghalien  for sale. Japan and the II. S. A.  are expected to bid.  The French aviator Leon de  Grande was killed at Bordeau  last week when his aeroplane  collapsed while he was making a  flight.   Construction and equipment  of the ferry across the Columbia  to connect the Tete Jaune Cache  trail with the Big Bend trail  from Revelstoke have been completed. '  A new company has been formed  in London calLed the British  Dominion Goldfield Ltd.. which  will take over several leases near  Beaver Pass and Lightning creek,  Cariboo.  It is announced at Paris that  over $200,000 has already been  subscribed to a fund of $1,000,000  to be used for prizes and expenses in a great aviation meet to be  in France next year.  AN APPRECIATION  With the election of a new  Mayor, and tbe retirement of ex-  Mayor Bunting into private life,  we take this opportunity of expressing our sincere appreciation  of Mr. Bunting's work, as a citizen, and as our City Father tor  the past two years. Mr. Bunting  has attended strictly to business,  and has invested his hard earned  money in local enterprises, and in  John Burns, who represents  the labor union element in the  British parliament was assaulted  in Staffordshire after a political  meeting last week by an unknown man.  The first sitting of the new  Court of Appeal was opened in  the Supreme Court room at Victoria Jan. 4. All the most prominent leaders of the legal profession in B. C, were present.  Monel metal, a new alloy of  nickel recently put on the market,  contains 68 per cent of Nickel,  1.5 per cent of iron, and 30.5 per  cent of copper. It is silver white  and takes a brilliant finish which  it retains indefinitely, It is said  to possess a tensile strength about  25 per cent greater and an elastic  limit about 50 per cent higher  than the best rolled steel, ..and it  has, besides* the additional quality of incorrodibility. The mechanical possibilities open to  such an alloy 'are endless. For  example, the small cast propellers used in hydroplanes or high  speed motor boats are subjected to  enormous strain. Some propellers used in such boats make 1500  to 2000 revolutions a minute.  The strain on a blade thinned  down to an eighth of an inch, is  so great that an extraordinary  metal is required for this use.  Manganese bronze bends at the  blade tip and becomes uselesB, hut  monel metal has been fully  tested in such service and proves  to be absolutely rigid.  There arc now two comets visible  in the sky. One of these is Halley's  and the other has not yet been identified with any previous visitor. The  latter is about as bright as the former  was a month ago; that is, it is visible  in a small telescope. It is thought  that perhaps it is the comet of 1867  returning on a second observed visit  to the Sun. Whether or not it will  ever be more than a telescopic object,  cannot now be determined.  Halley's comet is now receding  from the Earth, but as it is approaching the Sun it will increase in brightness. It is now near the planet Mars,  that is, it is apparently near that  planet, and as it is said to be visible  to the naked eye, it ought to be possible for a sharp-eyed person to find  it on a clear night. Mars is the bright  red star which is seen to the eastward,  The comet is expected to grow brighter during January and February, after  which it will be so close to the Sun  that it will be invisible in the rays of  that luminary, until the latter part of  April, when it ought to become again  visible in the morning, just before  sunrise. - It will disappear about the  latter part of May; but just before  disappearing it will be visible as an  evening star. This will be during  the last ten days in May. It will  then be only 14,000,000 miles from  Earth, but its position will be so low  in the western sky that to see it one  must look for it just as soon as twilight fades. Just how brilliant it may  be is a matter of conjecture. Astronomers have noted that its brilliancy has  been exceedingly variable.  The Tenderfoot Farm  It wps one of these experimental farmers, who put greet?  spectacles on his cow and fed her shavings. His theorJ  was that it didn't matter what the cow ste so long as sk  was fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment 1  not entered into his calculations.  It's  only-a "tenderfoot" farmer  that would   try suclj  an experiment with a cow.    But many a farmer feeds hit  self regardless of digestion and nutrition.    He might almost as well eat sha\i  ings for all the good he gets out of his food.   The result is that the stomac!  grows "weak" the action of the organs of digestion and nutrition ore impaired-]  and the man suffers the miseries of dyspepsia and the agonies of nervousness.  ~ To strengthen the stomach, restore ��Ai�� activity ot the or.  Sans of digestion and nutrition and brace up the nerves,  use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.  It is an an. .  tailing remedy, and has the confidence ol physicians as  well as the praise of thousands healed by Its use.

This meeting was broken up by  rowdies, who carried Lord Rondaldshay to a nearby Socialist  gathering.  The kidnappers had to fight off  Rondaldshay's friends, but thev  succeeded in carrying their victim  to another hall and there bombarded him with questions.  He was compelled to spend several hours answering the critics,  and was in a state of collapse  when liberated.

The new bill proposes to place  the onus of proof on the defendant instead of upon the crown iu  such very special cases as are the  perpetual curse of mining camps.  The measure will excite special  attention in tbe mining districts  of this province. It reads as follows: "Everyone is guilty of an  indictable offense and is liable to  two years imprisonment who,  having in his possession or upon  his premises with his knowledge  any rock, orev; mineral, stone or  other substances containing gold  or silver or any un smelted or  untreated or unmanufactured or  partly smelted, partly treated, or  partly manufactured gold or silver, is unable to prove that he  came lawfully by the same."  year. The prediction that copper  would sell at 14 cents before January  1 has been verified, and the anticipation that it will go to 15 cents should  be realized soon. Consumption is  now increasing more rapidly than  production. There is likely to be a  decided scarcity of copper within  three or four months and the price  may go well above 15 cents. The  use of water power for the generation of electricity and the electrification of manufacturing' plants and  transportation lines, the extension of  electric lighting- in various fields, including for advertising purposes, and  the steadily growing use of the tele-1  phone in rural districts are combining  to greatly increase the consumption  of copper the world over. When  the work of electrifying the great  trunk lines of railroad between the  principal cities of the northeastern,  central and southern portions of the  United States and the electrification  of the mountain divisions of the several transcontinental lines gets fairly  under way the price of copper will  again advance to around 20 cents and  remain at approximately that level for  two or.three years. We believe that  plans for this railroad electrification  are being laid out now and that they  will be adopted within a year or two  and the work well under way within  three years. There is every prospect  that the average price of copper in  1910 will be 15 cents, and there is  reason to hope that it will be maintained at approximately this price until consumption so far exceeds production as to cause a further advance.  SCOUT'S PATROL SONG  The following comments on the  future of the copper market from the  Boston Commercial are most assuring:  Copper is stronger. Lake is 14 cents  and electrolytic is 13 % cents per  pound. Considerable sales have been  made at these prices within the past  few days. The consumptive demand  has increased to such a point that  ^^ii^'i^ii^h.^&iii&i *te; conic  inter, '-'the- rtiwrktrV tod producers are  iu^iffi^ ;tp?';^ tftetal- s^  &*jl^yio^;;*p'rMi��^ wjij^ly ha^pfSvaSted  through  the  greater  portion  of  the  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is not  a common, every-day cough mixture.

The company owns the coal rights of 2,458 acres of land and has options on  three square miles additional. Work has been done in development continuously since  September 2, and a tunnel is now being driven to cross-cut three seams which show on  the surface. Coal can be delivered from the mouth of this tunnel to the C. P. R.  tracks below by gravity,  Development work done thus far is as follows:  One prospecting tunnel on the surface of the seam, 50 feet in length.  One shaft and drifts, about 45 feet, all in the coal seam.  One shaft and incline, following the proven seam to the depth of 80 feet.  An analysis of the surface coal returns 66 per cent carbon and only 3 percent ash.  The Company owns other properties, including fruit lands, mineral claims,  options on mineral claims, mines and timber limits. Its coal holdings alone are  considered worth more than its issued capital stock. An investment in this stock at  the present price should be immensely productive.

THIRTY/SIX FEET OF ORE  GITY COUNCIL  From start to finish an enthusiastic audience enjoyed the performance of "Bonnife Brier  Bush", on Tuesday at the Auditorium.  The play itself is of unusual in  terest and the company presented  it most artistically. Especial  praise is due Alex Milne for his  splendid interpretation of Lach-  lan Campbell. Miss Eva Walley  as Flora Campbell, a most difficult part,.was decidedly clever.  "Posty", perhaps the most delightful character in the play,  was in good hands, William Col-  vin has every qualification to  please. Dr. McLure, the Scotch  country practitioner who had  spent his life in Drumtochty, was  a most lovable physician and  Wm. Meikle was every inch the  doctor. ' The popular hit ot the  evening was the capital singing  and acting of Gertrude and Clara  Lindsay, two small girls with a  big future and Mrs. Lindsay has  every reason to be proud of her  bajrns. Her own acting as Margaret, a demure scotch widow,  was delightful.
