From .where  the sun blazes, its way into the  heart of the earth in Medieval  Mexico to places in the north of  this illimitable Dominion, where  the iciness of the atmosphere  makes it almost impossible for a  sunbeam to penetrate, the mails  are bringing* inquiries to]tha Honorable, the Mayor of the city,asking for information. This is not  exaggeration. Why, even Grand  Porks, which never before saw  any good thing* come'out of Greenwood is devoting most of the news  space of its larger paper to the  tunnel scheme. Introducing the  subject the Gazette says:  "Not since the year 1901, when  Jay P. Graves, of Spokane,  brought about the amalgamation  of many of the low grade copper  properties in the Phoenix camp  and procured capital sufficient for  their successful development, has  an enterprise of such great importance to the Boundary district  been projected as that of driving  a deep tunnel to tap the high  grade ore bodies of the Greenwood  camp."  Speaking editorially it con-  tinues-  *'By the formation of the Greenwood tunael company~ibe -Boundary district will receive an impetus which it has not felt since  the advent of the Granby and the  C.P.R. into the district. Not only will Greenwood be benefited  by the company's operations, but  all sections of the Boundary,  where high grade ore. bodies  exist, will be affected to a greater  or lesser degree. Grand Forks  has many high grade properties  in its vicinity, both on Hardy  mountain and up the North Fork  of the Kettle River, and now that  a company has been formed to  operate by.deep tunnel at Greenwood, no doubt the. mine owners  in this neighborhood will adopt  the same method of developing  their properties; The Greenwood  tunnel, then, is not of local interest only, for it affects the whole  Boundary country and to some extent all mining sections in British  Columbia."  Some copies of the announcement of the company are in circulation. The company is to be  named the Greenwood-Phoenix  Tunnel Co., Ltd., and its promotion is in the hands of the Fiduciary Company, Chicago  The tunnel will be driven from  the base ot the Strathmore mountain and its outlet will be on the  Nelson mineral claim, owned by  the Strathmore and Helen Murine  Co. In the first three thousand  feet, it will cut several known  veins, four of which are on the  Strathmore and three on the Defiance. Betweeu this and the  Crescent mine, a distance of about  3,000 feet further it will cut eleven  more known veins. In the first  6,000 feet,' a total of eighteen  known veins all carrying, high  values have been found at or near  the surface and if the history of  practically every such project is  to be taken as a basis, the tunnel  may be expected to disclose double  the number of veins now exposed  on the surface.  At pressat the control of all  the properties directly along the  proposed route has been obtained.  As the scheme develops it is expected that the  owners  of   the  claims to the north and south of  the route will co-operate and that  the ccmpany will be able to operate these claims bp laterals.  From the high grade belt the  statement is very familiarly  made that about ,$990,000 has  been taken. When the veins on  the properties in this belt are opened up, the million dollar production up to the present, will be  as nothing compared to the almost certain results of develop.  men.t. What has been' done so  far, has in nearly every instance  been accomplished with very little  machiuery. The distribution is  made as follows :  Provideuce $400,000  Skylark L  200.

There are on the Strathmore three, known veins, only one  of which has been opened. In it  ,-.--������ '.-������������' .-&*-<  the'btoping work amounts chiefly to an incline making a vertical depth of 110 feet and from the  110 foot level.about 200 feet of  drifting has-been done on the  vein. The ore product so far  amounts to 215 tons, in money  $30,000. It is estimated that on  this yein there are 1,200 feet yet  to open and on the same basis as  the present work this should produce at least $180,000. The tunnel will open this vein about 330  fee#t below the 110 foot level and  on this proven basis of production will expose ore worth $540,  000. To attempt to continue this  exposition to compute at any  length, the richness of. the mountain between Greenwood and  Phoenix would lead us into figures which would hardly be comprehensible to many of us now.  That the high-grade belt holds  great bodies of. ore, experts tell  us and we believe, but to attempt  to say what is the amount, would  be foolish, for we do not know.  The Sifting8-News of Idaho  Springs, Colorado, recently published an interesting description of  the Newhouse tnnnel, an enterprise of great magnitude and calculated to become of great ben eflt  in the mine development of that  part of the state. Following is  from  the above-mentioned paper :  The ^Newhouse tunnel was the  pioneer crosscut tunnel in this  county, and was ridiculed for aeveral years as a foolish undertaking.  It was' claimed that valnes did  not extend to the depth at which  the veins wonld be cut by the tunnel, even if the veins were there���  a theory which was Upheld by  some of the leading mining writers  at the time, but which has since  been moBt emphatically disproved.  Samuel Newhouse located the  tunnel February 13, 1891, and  nothing further than surveying was  done until tbe spring of 1893, since  which time the tunnel has been  driven each year as follows :  FEET.  1893.     80  1894. 1405  1895 1992  1896 ..2061  1897 1080  1898     go  1899 455  WO-- 2885  1001 2524  1902  7,u  !904 1890  19-'B 678  190U..'. 2077  19>'7 258  Total length Jan 1, 1988, 17,540  Jt is estimated that the cost of  driving the tunnel and installing  permanent equipment is equivaleut  tc 830 a foot���a total investment  of leBs than 6550,000.  The revenue from haulage of 200  tons a day, at $1 per ton, would  yield over 870,000 a year gross,  and allowing for the operating expenses and maintenance, thia income would pay more than 10 per  cent on the investment.  As an illustration, a couple of  weeks ago one trainload of 41 cars  was pulled out of the tunnel with  a single locomotive, Eacb of the  cars contained more than two tons.  The one trainload shows the possibilities, and 200 tone a day, with  the facilities at hand, could easily  be multiplied five times, and make  the earning capacity of the New-  house tunnel not less than 50 per  cent, per annum on the money invested.  The Newhouse tunnel is four-  fifths completed. Thero remains  yet a little less than 4,000 feet to  take the heading to its projected  terminal under the Enreka shaft.  The tunnel" company is indep'ena-  ent. The three connections with  the surface made it unnecessary to  longer maintain artificial ventila-  9  tion, -and the small amount of  power required to operate the electric railway, the employment of  motormen, dump switchmen, track  and car repairers, is "practically all  the expense attached to tbe handling of traffic.  There was approximately, on  January 1, 1908, over 16,000 fee-)  of laterals driven on the various  veins intersected by the Newhouse  tunnel, making altogether more  than six miles and a quarter of underground workings as the result  of the driving of the tunnel. The  tunnel company derived a revenue  from hauling every car of ore and  waste taken out in extending these  laterals.  FEBRUARY  SHIPMENTS  THE GRANBY  For the month of February, the  Gcanby mines at Phoenix shipped  to the smelter at Grand Forks  8o, 155 dry tons of ore. This output has been exceeded only twice  in the past year, the July shipment being 8o,216 tons and the  October shipment 86,711 tons. It  exceeds the output for January  by 5,952 tons. The entire shipment for 19o7 amounted only to  613,567 tons while in two months  this year it Has made 154,358 tons  or over one fourth of the total  shipment of last year.  CARD OF THANKS  MONDAY'S   MEETING  The City Clerk had a sheapof  communications to read to the  members of the council���Mayor  Bunting, Aldermen Wilson, Mortimer, Meyer, Gulley and Fleming who were present.  The Provincial Secretary sent-  official notification of the appointment of Aid. Jas. Sutherland and  Duncan Mdutosh, members of  the Board of License Commissioners and of Alderman William  Boyd Fleming and John Lang ton  Coles as members of the Board of  Commissioners of Police for the  city.  Dr. S. S. Oppenheimer, M.H.O.,  reported that he hid made special examinatirs of the milk supply, the third he had made since  the beginning of the present year  and that the milk was up to the  standard and free from adulteration,  A. S. Black reported that he  bad held inquest on the body of  Mary Esteade.  Mussens, Limited, Vancouver,  were after the contracts for the  "Smith" mixture for our new cement sidewalks.  The Premier acknowledged the  request of Qthe city tor amendments to the Municipal Clauses  Act giving it power to aid a tunnel. G. R. Naden, re the same  matter had wired, amendments  requested favorably reported to  house by Municipal Committee.  The Water Committee -was given power to purchase, if -they so  desired a'Seagrave cut-off valve, at  a cost of $9.00.  "The  folio-wing aCCdunts-were  ordered paid:  Dr. Spankie    5.00  G.  H.

This  is only about one-fourth of the  amount taken out last year by  this company, as it suffered from  the hindrances in doing business  common to all the mountain companies in not being able to get  cars during the winter of last year  to ship the stock then on hand.  In the fall, it was estimated by  the Lumbermeu's Association  that the mountain mills had about  300,000,000 feet of lumber on  hand and as the financial conditions responsible tor killing the  trade last year have not loosened  very much, it is not probable  that much of this is yet shipped  The lumber coming down the  Maiu Kettle will be handled by  the mill at Cascade -which   will  Thc members of the Greenwood  Concert Orchestra  take this op-  .^   ,   _,     .  ,��� .   .     open about May 1st and will em-  portumty to thank the people for.  their geBerous patronage which  made their Leap Year Ball of  February 28, so great a success.

COPPER COSTS & PROFITS  Copper is hanging around 12 j��  cents.    The report of the Tennessee Company'for 1907, says that'  their cost of mining electrolytic  copper wos 12.22 and for casting  11.79 cents.   The company produced 12,569.019 pounds   of   fine  copper from its own ores, and 205,  133  pounds   from   custom   ores.  Of its product, 2,230,136   pounds  was electrolytically refined,  evidently for the purpose of recover-  ing the gold and- silver, contributed chiefly by the custom  ores.  The remainder was   sold   in  the  form of pig copper, the unrefined  product of the company's furnaces  being an excellent grade of casting copper.    Their   sales   averaged a little better than 20 cents,  making their net earnings   after  charging off $70,000 for   depreciation, $800,635; a total of $650,000  was distributed in dividends.  TIE TIMBER  It is estimated that the C.P.R.  will take four hundred thousand  ties from the Boundary this -  spring. Practically all of these -.  are being taken out from the  country about Boundary Creek���  Greenwood and Eholt are the  centres.

Asa natural repult of his pre ity  generous and wilful handling of  issues of international importance  Mr. Bowser apparently has come  to think that the doctrine of lese  majeste applies to his actions in  that capacity. In the course of  his official duties, the other day,  Mr. Justice Clement judged it  necessary to protest forcibly  against the action entered by the  Attorney-general. The reason  why this became necessary has  been pointed out often in other  places but in order that it may  be made clearer, we give below  the judgment of Mr. Justice Clement. His words are well worth  the consideration of every citizen  of this province for the time has  come -when we must, if we are  to retain our self-respect, put  some curb on men who allow their  own personal gratification to imperil the constitutional structure  on which the greatness of this  Dominion depends. As yet we  are not definitely concerned with  die logical conclusion of the disruptive tactics of Mr. Bowser and  th*, few unbalanced extremists  from tbe Asiatic exclusion league  who do not represent tha general  spirit of that association. The  advantages of Confederation to  this province are quite too evident  for discussion. But the warning  raised by Mr. Justice Clement as  to the meaning of tha action entered sheuld be carefully read  and heeded.  The following is the judgment  of Mr. Justice Clement:  In the Supreme Court of British  Columbia, in the full court���Re  M. Nakane   and   T. Oksake���  Judgment ot the Honourable  Mr. Justice Clement.  I agree entirely with the learned chief justice and my brothers  Irving and Morrison, on the one  real point of these appeals. To  my mind the case for the appellant attorney-general is hopeless;  so hopeless that I feel constrained  to express my regret tha* it should  ever have been thought proper to attempt to enforce the  British Columbia Immigration  Act, 1908, as against these respondents,  We live in a federal system of  government. With regard to certain matters the Canadian people  speak as a unit, while as to other  matters we speak separately, and  if we choose, diversely by provinces. The system was brought to  birth onlv after long travail. The  minds of our best men were long  occupied in fixing upon the proper line of division between matters of general or Canadian concern and matters of more immediately local or provincial concern,  and the result of their labors as  embodied in the British North  America Act should be lovally recognized and respected. Nodoubt  honest differences of opinion may  exist in many cases as to where  the line is drawn by that act, or  as to the question on which side  of the line a particular matter  should properly fall. But to suggest doubt where no real doubt  exists, and particularly as to  matters apt to inflame, is not, in  my judgment, to be commended.  Such a matter we have here. This  matter of Japanese immigration  has been dealt with properly,that  is to say constitutionally, by the  the parliament of Canada ; and I  must say to my mind it smacks  strongly of disloyalty to our settled form*, of government when  the authories of one province undertake to over-ride and render  abortive the will of the people of  Canada���et quorum pars magna  sumus���constitutionally expressed in an act of the parliament of  Canada; and when they ever made  bold to forbid the honorable observance of our solemn engagements with a foreign power ;  I should perhaps add that I express no opinion as to the effect,  each upon the other.of the Japan--  The-Vancouver Sunset has a  few shells, hot and   smoking   to  drop on the doorsteps of the Provincial Government anent the estimates.   Victoria has  asked for  an appropriation to beautify the  the   Capital   city.    The   Sunset  says:    "And   before the Government appropriates $25,000 a year  a year for ten years, or any other  sum for any term, for  that   purpose, it needs to show that   it   is  big enough   to   build  necessary  trails and roads in constituencies  which send opposition   members  to the   legislatures.    Complaints  of neglect by the   Government of  such ridings as Yale,  Chilliwack  and others represented by Opposition members, are too numerous.  While  such   conditions    prevail  Victoria's plea should not be considered."  Not only are constituencies  sending opposition members to  the Legislature being practically  deprived altogether of any share  in the moneys taken from them so  liberally by the B.C. government  taxes, but the member for this  constituency has shown up the  way in which even the appropriations, that are made by the  House are stolen.from these constituencies. The Kettle River  Bridge was to be built in the  Greenwood district and appropriations were made last session  with tbat in view. Last Thursday in the House, Mr. Naden  charged that it was through "the  influence of the member for Similkameen that this bridge had  been started where it had. The evidence of Mr. Gamble throws  some light oa tbe differences between the site in Greenwood district and the other.  Mr. Gamble the engineer, in  his'evidence stated that after passing upon��the available sites for  the bridge he had decided upon  one in the Greenwood district.  The bridge would be 120 feet long  with 25 or 30 feet in  approaches.  The site used in Similkameen  required a bridge 144 feet long  with 160. feet of approaches. The  cost of the bridge at the site in  Greenwood would be about $4,000.  Tbat iu Similkameen would be  about $6,000.  He told of having gone last  year to the site and stopped work  after $1,800 had been spent, because the bridge was not being  carried out according to instructions.  The question will likely come  up in the House again later.  -I'll mn i  mmnmn. nm  <1  all mining aud water statutes not  included in appendix A in Vol. I  and. a large number of the statutes re water rights are recited at  length in the bock. CaTeful and  appropriate notes and references  are made throughout the book,  thus making it an invaluable treatise, at least, to every practising  lawyer in the province.  Every day some one, an authority in his line speaks of the wonderful wealth of British Columbia.  The reputation of this province  and particularly of the Boundary  is reviving every day, recalling  the boom days that every successful mining camp in the world has  had to glory in, and the remembrance of which each and eyerv  one of them has had in its turn  to endure for a time. The fact,  though, is that again British Co'-  nmbia is coming to its own and  the towns of the interior need only one thing to make the sunbeams of every day radiate with  gold. They-demand and require  as a condition, individual support  and faith in them from every single citizen they have The man  who hasn't this faith in his town  ought to move somewhere else.  Besides this there should be no  faction, no dissension. Pa!th and  no faction are good resolves for  desirable citizens.  straight shut down to full force  seems to big a thing to be done  on any other basis than fair promises for the future deliveries of  copper.  EDITORIAL NOTES  Mr. Justice Martin's Mining  and Water Cases, Vol. II, Part II,  has just been issued by the Cars-  well Co., Ltd., Toronto, and is a  most careful compilation of the  judgments in mining and water  cases given in the various courts  of this province up until January  1st, 1908. These two subjects  bave been associated in this work  by Mr. Justice Martin because c f  their evident relation. They involve legal questions of similiar  character. This volume is dealing with judgments since 1905,  many of which are very familiar  to the public of this vicinity.

Had the Government shown the slightest interest  in Oriental immigration since  Dunsmuir's reservation last April,  and during the stirring times of  last summer's influx, it might at  least plead consistent adherence  to a principle. It introduced the  Natal Act as a rash piece of politics, and now it is getting its fingers properly singed.     .    .    .    .

It would be a stupid as well as  savage thing to boat a weary or starved  man because he lagged in his work. So  In treating the lagging, torpid liver it is  a great mistake to lash it with strong  drastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an  indication of an ill-nourished, enfeebled  body whose organs are weary with over  work. Start with the stomach and allied  organs of digestion and nutrition. Put  them In working order and see how  quickly your liver will become active.  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery  has made many marvelous cures of "liver  trouble ** by its wonderful control of tlio  organs of digestion and nutrition. It restores the normal activity of the stomach,  increases the secretions of the blood-making glands, cleanses the system from poisonous accumulations* and so relieves the  liver of the burdens imposed upon it by  the defection of other organs.
