Copper Street  Greenwood  NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER  To th.: Editor |of tho Boundary Oreek  Times:  ��� D_A.it Sru : An editorial, under  the caption, "The Rock Creek  Bridge," appeared in your issue  of the Gfch inst., containing such  glaring inaccuracies, which may  be presumably ascribed to your  ignorance of the facts, as the key-"  note of your article is so insistent  in condemning partisan bias.  Your statement "that local parties were were making ready for  the enterprise, possibly with the  mistaken view that by having preliminaries under way they could  influence the-judgment of the engineers," is entirely erroneous..  Pull plans of the bridge to be'constructed "'.'above the mouth of  Rock creek" were forwarded from  the lands aud works -department,  Victoria, to the district superintendent of roads and instructions  given by him to the foreman of the  work, before a stick of, timber was  cut. The" situation of the bridge  is. evidently the bete noir, and in  reading-betweeu the lines of the  .flimsy arguments advanced against  it, it is somewhat difficult to determine whether partisan bias or  dense ignorance of the Bubject is  the predominating factor. Perhaps  a "few facts, ia connection with the  inception_ofr,the_ bridge mayIteud  to clear the editorial cranium  and lead to a more intelligent comprehension of the situation.  For some years past tbe residents  of-thiH portion of the Similkameen  riding have petitioned the government, through their representative,  the necessity of a bridge at the  crossing of the Kettle river at  Ro.ck Creek7 the natural thoroughfare for accommodating not only  the "hill farmers" but the farmers  above Rock Creek. ; The lower  portion of the Kettle river being  already spanned by two bridges���  one at Ingrim's and one at Midway���the building of the Rock  Creek bridge equally divides the  stretch of river between Rock  Creek and Midway, - there being  about seven miles between each  bridge. The site of the bridge,  now under construction, is an exceptionally good one,- the-rivcr bed  is good and the courso of the current of the stream such as to minimize the danger from logs and  driftwood. The site was not hurriedly chosen, the various stages  of water being well considered and  besides receiving the full Jsanction  of the member for the district, who  takes an active part in the distribution of the public money in his  riding, and "in a way consistent  with the public good. Tlie site  has aleo received the approval of  competent engineers.  Surely, Mr. Editor, you must  have been poking fun when your  ideal bridge "would lead directly  to the chosen site of the Midway  and Vernon railway depot." Ono  thing is evident, you are certainly  a typical British Columbian���al-1  ways living in hope. Well, we all  hope that the evanescent Midway  and Vernon will be built some day  and when it is the depot will be  where nature has provided a site  for it, viz., opposite the mouth of  Rock, creek, a site which commends  itself to the ordinary business sense,  but I think the new bridge will be  completed before the depot is.  Your concern for the Kettle  River Irrigation compauy seems  somewhat misplaced. When the  gentlemen who are at the head of  this company started operations,  the whole countryside was open to  them and, though they purchased  properties both above and below  Rock Creek, they, failed to recognize the value of the land at the  ous lines : " We do not for a moment believe that any partisan bias  WQiild influence the decision of  one invested with power to use the  public money in any but a way  consistent with the public good."  In conclusion, permit me to extend to you a hearty invitation to  the opening of the new bridge, anJ  I feel sure when you are thoroughly  conversant with the situation you  will recognize not only the fitness  of the site, but that the; construction of this bridge will be a great,  boon to the residents of this portion of the Similkameen district.  Yours truly,    H. S. Pit tendrigu.  Ror-k Creek. Sept.. 12,' 1907.  We desire to make a few observations in connection with the  above.  '"���We did not say that no, plans  had been received, we said it looked as if work were being advanced  possibly with the mistaken view  that the judgment of the engineer  as to location might be" influenced.  At that writing -the engineer  had not visited the grounds  although the plans were in hand,  and we were then and ,are now of  the opinion that a personal inspection of the locality by the  engineer would not commend the  site. - *  Nor do we as yet see any reason  to believe that any partisan bias  alone will influence the judgment  of one invested with jpower to,use  public money ih a. way inconsistent with the public good. But  this does not refer to the "member for the riding," or to the  draughtsmen in the department,  or to those locally in control, it  refers to the government engineer to whom the-public must look  for an upright deal and the wise  investment of public funds. When  that official confirms the present  site, then we may be obliged to  revise our belief. No, no, it was  no lapse of memory at all, it was  a decent (judgment of a public,  official.  We do ��not blame our correspondent for trying to get the  bridge right at his own door if he  can-make those-responsible for- it  believe it is the right place, but  we think the public will hold that  official and those he represents to  .account for - a flagrant public  wrong should the bridge be placed where the public shall not get  the return to which it is entitled  for its money.  the town and Community and  carry with them the best -wishes  of their many' friends.

AROUND CARMI  RE-BALLASTING  The V.V. & E. is busily engaged in re-ballasting, and putting  the roadway between Midway aud  Oroville in first-class shape for a  heavy winter traffic. The management evidently intends to  stick the rails more for the road's  operation during the coming winter than it did last.  ON-THE BOOM  Local Odd Fellowship is.on the  boom. Tuesday evening last ten  tender ones were'put through the  mysterious ritesof the firstdegree.  They liked it too, but the best is  yet to come. High Chief Ranger  of the wild i, a prince of the order  and wearer of the jewelled turban,  one Fred B. Holmes, appears responsible in a large measure for  the fresh interest taken .iu the order of the three links.  Interest in the value of the land  on West Fork, around Carmi, for  colonization purposes continues to  grow. Oa Monday of this week  four men, the advance guard of a  large number, arrived in.Midway  and sent for James Dale. They  disclosed their purposes to Mr.  Dale and wanted to enter into contract for his holdings, and regretted to find that they were too late,  as the Father Ferroux party will  be on the ground by the first of  the month prepared to begin on  their work of settlement. Some  suggestion was made as to the  feasibility of uniting the two parties aud that may be a matter for  later negotiation.  WONDERFULLY IMPRESSED  THINGS DOING  COPPER MO.PIE  Need Not Discourage  Holders  OF  THE  GOOD   STOCKS  So  Says   the    Boston    Commercial  in an Arclicle Reviewing*  The Entire Situation.  BY AND BY  The Ashcroft Journal is decidedly in the swim these days. Its  its issue of Sept. 14th is largely  taken up with profitable land and  timber notices. Of its 43columns,  34 are so employed. One ldcator  who wants his share of the public  domain asks for 50 special licenses to cut timber, and another  will be satisfied with 120.  UNOPPOSED  The latest advices from New  Brunswick are that Minister  Pugsley will be returned unopposed. What about the reaction we  hear about that is setting in  against the Liberal party? The  reported defection of his own  party and the enthusiastic prospects of the Conservatives don t  seem to materialize.  Mr. Robert Jaffrey is thus quoted in an interview reported in the  Toronty.Globe, aoent. the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. :���������  "That the company has some  very active enemies is quite apparent. It is not true that Mr. Hill  has increased his holdings in the  manner asserted, and it is not true  that Mr. Lindsey is to retire.  "The Granby Copper Company  of Grand Forks recently purchased a very considerable-'block.of  Crow's Nest coal stock, paying  for it a sum in the neighborhood  of $700,000. The company has  also put a good, deal of money  into the-.treasury of the Crow's  Nest Co. for use in the enlargement of the company's operations,  ashas Mr: Hill. The matter has  not been one of control at all, and  the "suggestion tha t=th ere'isaf ued  between parties within the directorate is an absurdity.  "The present outputof the company is about 3,500 tons   a   day.  With the additional capital which  has been secured "and which fotins  a transaction   quite   apart   from  any sale or purchase   of stock in  market, is is intended to  increase  at the earliest   possible date the  output to 7,000   tons   daily,   ai d  ultimately to 10,000 tons.  Fuel for Six Thousand Years  "The one object  of  the company i** to increase the coal supply  on the Pacific coast.    In this connection it may be pointed out that  every dollar spent on development  work   by either the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Com pany,which according to the reports of the Geological Survey, has   possession of   a  coal area which an output of 10,  000 tbns a day could  not exhaust  in six thousand years, or the Granby Smelter company, is  obsorbed  by and benefits Canadian labor."  But, Mr. Jaffrey, you can't keep  warm today on the fire that will  be kindled tomorrow, nor can the  smelters of today burn those millions, six thousand years hence.  Few of us in fact expect to be  here then.  Mr. W. F. Procter, of the Bank  of Montreal had a pleasant visit  Wednesday from an old friend,  Mr. W. E. Stavert,-..'Superinten-  tendent of Maritime Province  agencies of'the Batik of Moutreal  This is Mr. Staverb's first visit  to British Columbia and he is  wonderfully impressed" with its  potentialities.      7 77;7:. ��� 7  He is using his vacation period  to acquaint himself more fully  with Canada's heritage in the  west, aud expresses surprise that  more of its great opportunities  are not being seized by the wealthy  men of Canada, many of whom  seem to have capital for launching  big things any where but in their  own land.  Mr. Stavert will visit every  branch of his bank, unofficially,  in British Columbia before returning to his headquarters in Moi-  .re'aJ.'������*������  *--������������*��� : ������.���-���-.:  BOUNDARY FRUIT  We'are pleased to observe that  Martin Burrell of Grand Forks  has been contributing some very  fine fruit tp.the Nelson Fair list  of exhibits, and carried off 13 first  prizes, 3 second and 4 third.  In tbis connection we beg to  commend the act of (he local government in sending Mr. Burrell  to England to assist Mr. R. M.  Palmer in making known the  capacity of the province in this  matter of fruit growing, Mr. Burrell knows the subject aud moreover knows how to discussit.  TOO MANY SCHOOL BOOKS  ^^W-ith out-bei ti g���f u 1 ly=M n-f o^med-  as to the merits of the subject a  correspondent discusses, we have  pleasure in herewith : submitting  his letter:���  Editor Times,  Dear Sir : The McBride government proposes to introduce a  new British history, a geography,  and an arithmetic in 1908. Milne's arithmetic books harmless,  but it consists of three partf, one  vat 35 cents, one at 40 cents, and  one at 45 cents. Thus a family  after Christmas will pay. S.L.20  for the arithmetics instead of 25o-  as now.  We now have four geographies.  Warn the people so that they may  send a delegate to the���Provincial  Trustee meeting at Mew Westminster armed to prevent such an  injustice.  "JUSTICE  The Boston.Commercial in its  issue of Sept. 11 iu reviewing  the copper market   says:���  " Chaos   rules in the    copper  market.     Certain   interests    are  working  to get the price   of, the  metal down to buy,    and   olheis  are discrediting the metal market  for effect on stocks.    The nominal  quotation for copper is at IS cts.  per pound.    It   is   reported,   btr .  not confirmed, that considerable  saleshavebeen made ai\7yj cents  Consumers are-afraid to buy, except to   supply   their innnedi;i'(.  wants.    The market ma}- continue unsettled for a week or two.  The news comes from Butle  that / the Amalgamated mines  there are.curtailiug their production. The August output fell off-  5,000,000 pounds. If this recouise  is taken by the leading producers  there need be uo further decline  i.ti: the price. It is better for  Amalgamated to produce. 150,000-  000 pounds and sell it at 18 cts,  than to put 200,000,000 pounds  and sell it, at 15 cents . The  net profit would be larger in  the former cases and 5(1,000,000  pounds of copper conserved in  the mines. Copper iu the ground  is a good investment���a good*  t'-iing t) hold. There will be  a market for it eventually   at  a  satisfactory price.  "..The scarefover" the metal anc.'  money markets is taking too  strong a hold on investors. Good  stocks are being sacrificed at absurdly low prices. AtiialganiatT  ed, A n icon da, Calumet & Arizona  Calumet & Heel a, Copper Range,  Granby, Greene Cananea, North  Butte, Osceola, Ouincy, CJtah  Consolidated and Wolverine can  earn from 10% to 14% on their  present prices even if copper goes  to 15 cents and stays there. The  reductions-in Calumet c_ Ilecla  and Quincy's dividend rates  should cause no uneasiness, investors who buy copper stocks  which yield all the way from S  per cent to 12 percent must not  expect them to be as .steady as  government bonds, eitner in  dividends or iu price. They  :must=^expect==iIuetua-tioi"s,-���aud,  they should ba prepared to average their holdings in a time of  panic such as has beeu witnessed  this week. This is an opportunity for the man with money."  HAS CLOSED.  The Co-operative Boarding  house has decided to go out of  business, at least temporarily.

In railroading the blacks and  browns are in evidence, in milling  the blacks have become popular,  in fishing the browns and yellows  are the prevailing colors.  For the white trash, there remains mining, a business for  which the weaklings of other  colors have not yet qualified.  When this rapidly growing color  scheme shall have been fully  worked out possibly the mines  even, will be closed to the white  man. In that day the country  will draw its foods stuffs and  other supplies from the Orient and  not from.the merchants and manufacturers of the east who appear  indiffereut to the growing menace.  If anyone knows of any other colored race, blue, green or pink,  who are out of work at home we  doubt not this growing commonwealth could be so manipulated  that they might get a foothold.  They could hold things down for  a time or until the foundations  laid by the whites were destroyed,  and the field were ripe for the  kindly east to send in its missionaries for a new evangelization.

Upon most of the band of old-  time worthieslife's autumn season  descends. The snows are creeping  silently down the. hill-sides and  into the foot-hills aud soon will  cover the plain. But after . the  season is fully matured what so  natural as the snow and after  life's fitful and ofttimes unrepaid  activities what so desirable as  rest.  EDITORIAL NOTES  arise through the crystallization  of magnetite from the fused mass  of slag and matte. This mineral  if heated beyond a certain point  gives up an atom of oxygen, which  reacting on the matte, forms sulphurous acid gas, the bubbling  of which interferes with the proper settling of the matte. The  presence of sufficient sulphur in  the charge and proper feeding usually prevent this trouble.  In copper smelting it is essential that there be enough sulphur  in the ores smelting to keep the  matte within proper limits, as to  grade, a good average for matte  being about 45 per cent. Matte  much richer than 50 percent.cop-  per occasions undue waste in slags  while matte running below 40 per  cent, requires" too much time for  converting as well as too frequent  reuewals of converter linings.  With the" matte within bounds  and with normal ores the slag  losses in copper and precious metals can be kept within the limits  of 0.30 to 0 35 per cent copper,  0.004 to 0.006 ess. gold, and 0.04  to .0.06 oz. silver per .-on of slag.  As-the slagi, about S2 to 90 per  cent, of the charge, as in the  British Columbia smelting practice, the loss per ton of ore is 85  tp 90 per cent.of the above figure.  <H><KKK>0000000<>0<>0000000^00  TH  CONTRACTOR  AND BUILDER  Dealer   in.

It is  first crushed or sifted and then  mixed with cement and lime.  Water is added to complete the  mixture, which is afterward placed iu special moulds aud subjected , to heavy pressure. Blocks of  various-sizes are made out of these  moulds, the largest being 8 ins.  high, 9 ins. long and 4>_ ins. wide  aud the most common ��� size measures 2'4 ius. high, 9 ins. long and  4^ - ins,' wide. The slag from  which the smaller blocks are made  is'crushed much finer than that  which forms the larger blocks.

Most of the Boundary district  (B.C.) copper ores contain lime  as crystalline calcite, which mineral when heated in the furnaces  tends to break up the whole mass  speedily. Chiefly for this reason  coarse crushing of the ores (from  4 to 6 ins. size) suffices, a small  saving in costs being thus effected  The "hole contract" system of  paying miners' wages is based on  the number of feet drilled in any  shaft. The rate paid per foot  drilled does not include firing or  reloading which are done by another set of men. This method of  payment is employed by Rossland  B.C., Mineville, N.Y., and in several European countries.  Foaming in the copper smelting  furnaces and settlers is occasionally troublesome, and appears to  MEAT   C  Copper Street  p,  b2on  struck   for  the last time.

The value of beer as a food is becoming well  known, and it is now used. by many who have  hitherto looked upon it as a beverage only.  uaiity .  is the most nourishing of all beers-���because it contains every  particle of the healthful, wholesome nutriment of the malt and  all the tonic properties of the hops from which it is made.  The Pabst Eight-Day Malting Process follows nature by  slowly transforming the substance of the barley into pure,  nutritious food. The- quality of the materials used and the Pabst  method of brewing rtlake Pabst Blue Ribbon not only a pure  beer, but a healthful, tissue-building, muscle-building, life-giving,  'liquid bread."

But the said tablet records that it  is a pledge of brotherly sympathy  with mourners in England-, America and Canada.
