They will  have races on their Indian ponies and  each evening that strangest of all  sights, an Indian war dance, will be  given. The squaws will dance, too,-  a.ul they will have their own races  with their ponies These sights year  by year become rarer and for every  one who has not seen an Indian.war  dance this will be an instructive sight.  The Indians will come from Chelafl.  They belong to the Chelan and Spokane tribes. The war dances will be  part of the evening entertainment  which this year for the first time will  be put on at the fair grounds instead  of down town. A fine programme of  entertainment is provided for the  night shows.  J. W.Nelson returned Friday from  a week's visit on the West Fork, where  he is interested in a number of properties, among which is the well known  Rambler. On this claim two men are  at work taking out about a ton of ore  daily. On the Rambler three shafts  have been sunk���70, .18 and IS feet  respectively. From the 70-foot shaft  a crosscut has been run 106 feet. At  the 50-foot level a drift has been run  75 feet on the ore, from which stoping  i3 now being done. The vein in the  drift runs from 18 to 28 inches wide of  almost soldi galena, with a very rich  paystreak of ruby and, native silver  on.the hanging wall running from 8  to 12 inches wide. The latest assay  from this pay streak gave 1,342.4 or,, in  silver per ton, or a value of $825.50.  Owing to the distance to the railway  at Midway���50 miles, and the difficulty  in bringing the ore down from the  mine to the government wagon road  except when the snow is on the ground,  shipments are only made during the  winter months. A number of ship  ments have been made from the  Rambler in the past three years. In  fact, development has been paid for  by. shipments from the mine. The  shipments made this year were two uars  one in February, netting $73 to the  ton in silver, arid and one in March  netting $74.23. .  Adjoining the Rambler is the Standard Fraction, owned by the same parties. Oii this claim a tunnel has been  run 80 feet on a lpad from 4 to 12 inches  wide, running up in the hundreds of  ounces of silver.  Mr. Nelson also visited the Duncan  claim, and went as far as Carmi. On  the_)uncan, which adjoins the Sally,  and is under bond to a Greenwood  S3'ndicate headed by C. H. Fair, two  men are working. A 25-foot shaft has  been sunk and the lead stripped for the  fill length of the claim. Another sh#ft  is being sunk on the south west end of  the claim. The vein is about 14 inches  wide, the latest assay from which gave  TetuTns=of 633",uriWs^silv^  At Carijii very little work is at  present being none. The management  of the Carmi still continues to do  nothing. The Butcher Boy, another  rich claim, will not be worked until  the Midway and Vernon railway construction reaches the West Fork. This  may also be said of the numerous holdings of J. C. Dale and others in the  vicinity of Carmi. ��  Mr. Nelson was unable to visit the  Sally, tut the regular force of 25 men  is at work developing the claim under  Superintendent Vacher. Stoping is  being done on the No. 1. lead, and a  part of the force is employed developing the No. 2, which is much wider  than at first supposed. On Cranberry,  Kelly and Boomerang creeks only assessment work is being done.  At Beaverdell busiuoss is fairly  good in the one store and  two  hotels.  Gorman West, in his hotel at Bull  creek, is doing a nice business. At  Westbridge business is also good.  Throughout the West Fork much activity in mining need not be expected  until construction work on th*e Midway  and Vernon railway has passed West-  bridge and the track has been laid to  that town.  STRIKE   ON  THE  EMMA.  Ten  Feet of Ore at the 150-Foot  ��� Level*  At the -.Rmnia mine the main ore  body was struck last week. The new  shaft was sunk to a depth of 150"feet,  and a drift run 50 feet to the north.  From this a crosscut was run to the  west for a distance of 23 feet, At this  point a narrow ledge of ore about two  feet wide was struck. A second drift,  is being run on this ore body, and is  now in about 20 feet. In; the face of  this drift the ledge appears to be about  ten feet wide. However, only one wall  is to be seen; the other side of the  tunnel being entirely iti ore. From  the appearance of the lead in the beginning of the drift, it is in the shape  of an opening wedge. A secondary  ledge was struck in the beginning, of  the main (north) drift, and continued  in for 50 feet- to the end of the drift.  This was only three feet wide, being '  in all probability an offshoot from the  main ledge.    All the rock between the  small   vein   and   the   recently   struck  main body is somewhat mineralized.  The ore-iu the main ledge is the best  yet struck iu the mine, aud will-, be  easy to take out, as the -veiti stand-  nearly vertical at this level. About  two cars of first class ore have so far  been raised from this part of the  workings.���AnacondaNews.  ROCK CREEK NOTES.  Fifty Indians will camp on the  grounds of the Spokane Interstate fair  throughout the time of the exposition  this year. They* will be present in all  their native innocence and will live  the simple life for seven days, where  they and their peculiarities aan be  viewed and studied by all. They will  live in their tepees, ride their horses,  care for their papooses and cat their  Indian meals as Indians did years ago  when unmolested by white men. They  also will  contribute each day  to  the  G-. O. Guise, the Westbridge merchant, returned Wednesday -from his  trip north. About four months ago  he and George McKenzie left for Ha-  zleton .with a band of horses. They  arrived too late with their stock, ,an-  other-outfit getting in ahead of them.  They cut hay and will winter the stock  in Bulkley vallev. The route traveled  was via Nicola, Ashcroft, Quesnelle,  and the government trail along the  -Y.ukonTTelegraph^Ji ne.J_Fr^nk John-_  son, who accompanied them, will winter the stock not disposed of in the  Bulkley valley. Geo. McKenzie is  placer mining on the Omineca. Mr.  Guise believes the Bulkley valley will.  become an important farming settlement. Development will be retarded,  however, by speculators filing on the  land with South African scrip.  L,loyd A Manley of Grand Forks has  invaded Similkameen district as well  as Greenwood and Grand Forks. He  is negotiating for a site on which to  build a whiskey joint on McBride's  ranch, Sidley mountain, and if he can  secure a license, he will erect a place  there. The Similkmncen license board  may not be susceptible to the Manly  influence. ,  McLean Bros, have practically sublet the li:-st ten miles of the Midway  aud Vernon railway, and sub-contractors have men at work along the  entire distance. The work is easy,  with very little rock.  On th, V, V. &E��� P. Welch has  sublet all the work to the-boundary  Hue near Molson. About 700 men are  now employed and within a month he  expects to have 2,000 men on the work.  This will be a record year for the  farmers of Kettle valley and on Sidley  mountain. The crops were never better and a home market will be -found  with the railway contractors.  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.  This is a medicine of great worth  and merit.

During that period the  residents of the Boundary were  sometimes impatient at the slow  progress made, but when one considers the district today and the  district nine years ago, when W.  J. Harber brought a Gordon press  and a few pounds of type into  Greenwood to start a paper in  the then new town, one is fully  convinced that the growth and  development of the district has  been remarkable. Nine years ago  there were many prospects but  no mines; today there are many  mines and large smelters. There  have been many changes in nine  years. Some of the pioneers  have crossed the Great Divide;  others became discouraged and  sought new fields. Taken all in  all, nine years of development  has   demonstrated   that   Green  wood is and will continue to be  the bestmimngdistrict in Canada.  During the nine years the  Times has had its ups and dqwus  like all other business enterprises  in a new mining camp. It starts  its tenth year, however, confident  that we are entering a prosperous  era. The days of doubt have disappeared and the mining industry which, after all, is the  backbone of this district, is now  ou a safe aud permanent basis.  AN OBJECT LESSON.  Greenwood now has a supply  of pure water, sufficient to meet  all the requirements of the city  for several years to come. The  completion of the new waterworks  system furnishes a srrikiug illustration of what can be accomplished with good municipal  management. A few years ago  the city was heavily in debt, its  credit was impaired'and the floating indebtedness had exhausted  the credit with the local bankers.  After a few years of careful  management the. floating indebtedness was wiped put, the  bonded indebtedness was reduced  and all the money necessary to  complete the waterworks was  secured from the Bank of Montreal pending the sale of the debentures. Had the old order of  things continued Greenwood  could not boast of an abundant  supply of pure water today. Injudicious extravagancesniay seem  tetnporarily, ad vantageous, but it  is the wise, conserva-tive administration which pays in the long-  run.' .'���'���'"    ' -'"-��*������.'���    :   '''���'".  '"--.���''���  nedy went to Ottawa to defend  the V., V. & E.'.plans' against  those which the Canadian Pacific  accused the Great Northern of  filing in April last.  It is too bad that the Phoenix  Pioneer hasn't been authoritatively informed regarding the  truth or falsity of the charges  against the license commissioners The views of that journal  ou this momentous question are  thereby lost to an anxious public.  Possibly the editors of the Pioneer and Grand Porks Gazette  could get together and arrive at  some decision on the matter.  wmmDmwmmmwmmwmmmwid  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  ���S  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  A LOCAL BOARD.  There is apparently no good  reason why the provincial electoral district of Greenwood should  not have a board of license commissioners of. its own. It extends  from Eholt on the north to the  international boundary line and  as far west as Westbridge. . That  three men from Grand Porks  should have jurisdiction over this  territory and enable party heelers  to exploit liquor licenses in territory not tributary to that city,  cannot be "justified. Apparently  the McBride government believes  that Greenwood electoral district  is hopelessly lost to the Conservative party and that its. party  friends in the district are entitled  to-no consideration.���Eremie_7Mc_  Bride believes it better policy to  offer up Greenwood district as a  sacrifice to Geo. Fraser, M. P. P.,  and his hungry gang. If local  Conservatives are satisfied with  this treatment, they are even  more impotent than their work  during the recent elections indicated.  J. H. Kennedy's trip to Ottawa recalls an amusing incident  in connection with the V., V. &  E. fight. Those connected with  the Ollala company some years  ago secured from the Dominion  parliament an act to incorporate  a company known as the Similkameen aud Keremeos Railway  company, The Ollala went the  way of a good many mining companies and no one paid any attention to its railway charter.  In April of this year a Toronto  firm ot lawyers filed plans for the  Similkameen and Keremeos railway. The Canadian Pacific officials were furious and openly accused the Great Northern of having acquired this charter to ob-  otruct their plans in the Similkameen. The Great Northern was  equally strong in the assertion  that the C. P. R. had secured  this charter. It afterwards developed that neither company  owned the charter. But since  then the Canadian Pacific has  bought the Similkameen and  Keremeos charter  and  Mr. Ken-  Tim appointment of W. H. P.  Clement as county court judge  will be pleasing information to  the residents of this district and  particularly to members of the  bar. Iu making this appointment the government has shown  a bona fide intent to strengthen  the judiciary of the province by  the appointment of strong men,  The Phoenix Pioneer knows  nothing about the doings of the  board of license commissioners  for Boundary district, but knows  everything about the dismissal of  the postmaster at Penticton. Its  great ignorance in the one instance and its great knowledge  in the other do credit to its few  ye ars of Tory tuition.  These are fairly dull days in  the editorial sanctum. The rich,  full thoughts which influence  readers do hot flow freely. Under  the. circumstances it is hard to  have the Nelson Tribune using  without credit sOme of the very  few good.things which come.  Wili, the attorney-general be  good enough to authoritatively  inform the Phoenix Pioneer what  he thinks of the board of license  commissioners of the Boundary  district ?  Lloyd A.

Gruves,  generalmanager of the Granby company, has returned from an inspection  of the company's mines at Peoenix, B.  C. He was accompanied by Mrs.  Graves. On the newly-acquired Monarch an ore quarry has already been  opened and shipments otore avcraging  a couple of cars a day are being made,  the ore being hauled by wagons to the  compressor siding on the Canadiaii  Pacific railway.  It is the inter* tioh to push work on  the opening of the Gold Drop, and a  tramway will be built and ore bunkers  erected at the CanadUn Pacific railway  tracks.  It will require about six months to  manufacture and install the new machinery for the headworks for the main  three-compartment incline shaft, including the 200-hoi-sepower electric  hoist. By the time the machinery is  on the ground the shaft will be ready  for it. Meanwhile the lower levels of  the Old Ironsides mine are being  thoroughly explored. From the bottom of the winze, running from the  300 to the 400 foot levels, the ore body  has been crosscut for upwards of 230  feet, and some of the best ore in tlie  mines has been found here. Drifts  from this crosscut are now being run  in several directions.  In addition to this the winze is being  continued to the 500 foot level, the explorations thus far proving that the  average values are improving as depth  is attained.  Six furnaces I are once more  steadily being operated at the coin  pany's reduction works near Grand  Fork,, and it is planned to have No. 7  furnace blown in by the 15th of September, No. 8 to follow in a short time  thereafter.  It is also the intention to install a  ninth furnace at the swelter at no dis  tant date. As the two new furnaces  are larger than any of the six old ones,  so the ninth furnace ib liable to be  larger still, and will give the works a  daily capacity ot considerably over  3,000 tons of ore. The converter has  already been enlarged, so that it can  take care of the output of nine furnaces  THREE JURORS CURED  Of Cholera Morbus with One Small  Bottle of Chamberlain' Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy-  Mr. G.

Although the Irish Gtirrds have noi  been long in existence, and up to their  formation there was no particular  irish battalion forming one of the  .household regiments, it has yet gained  a reputation for itself as a magnificent  organization, so far as tho rank and  file are concerned, but more especially  through the splendid band that C. H.  Hassell succeeded in getting together.  This band comprise, forty-two of  the finest musicians in any military  organization in the British Empire.  They have.a.l been selected for their  special anility on huiiie particular instrument, and, in fact, each and every  one is a soloist. In passing, it inigiu  be mentioned that it is a gratifying  fact, and one considered very gratifying to-, the Rosal Military School of  Mine*, lhai|_U the bandmasters of His  Majesty's Foot  Guards  received then-  training at Kneller Hall.  Mr. Hassell, although a comparatively young man, has been in the.  service for tipsy ards of, a .'.quarter of *.'.  century, "during which time he has  been attached to several leading military musical organizations, and waa  selected for the bandmaslership of the  Irish Horse Guards out of one hundred  candidates, because he was considered  the ablest conductor in the service.

SYDNEY M. JOHNSON, LOCAL NEWS ITEMS.  Jas.  Johnstone  came  in   from Spo  kane this week.  Proctor Joiner, manager of the Rus-  sell-Lasv-Caulfield Co.. made a business trip to Spokane this week.  Chas. Miller, general manager of the  B. C. Express company svas in the city  Saturday. Mr. Miller and his associates in Toronto organized the company a few years ago after securing  from the Dominion government the  contract for handling the mails in the  Cariboo and Lillooet districts. A fast  stage line is run from Ashcroft to  Barkerville, a distance of 280 miles,  along the famous Cariboo road. This  stage line, with its splendid equipment  of stages and horses, is about the last  of the historic lines which made the  west famous about forty years ago.  Duncan Ross, M. P., left Wednesday last iui a trip through part of his  constituency. It svould take a year or  more to cover the svhole territory, as  Yale-Cariboo is larger than many of  the European countries, He will be in  Hedley for Labor Day and will be tendered'a banquet at that place on the  5th, and at Nicola Lake on the 8th.  From there he will go through to  Spence's Bridge on the main line of  the C. P. R., a horseback ride  of over  '���'* 200 miles from Greeuwood, and then  he is not near the half-svay house from  north to south of the constituency.  The fall of Port Arthur svill be  vividly shown each evening this year  at the grounds of the Spokane Interstate fair, svhich will be held from  October 9 to 15. Pain's fireworks svill  be used to make this spectacular display. ThePdin company makes the  finest fireworks in the svorld. Manager  Cosgrove has arranged for tlie most  elaborate display. The fall of Port  Arthur will last forty minutes. One  of the set pieces is 175 feet long. It  is only one of many attractions which  arranged for this night show. The  manage in en t is giving the night shosv  ��� for the first time this year and is determined to make it a success, therefore will give a fine entertainment.  'The grounds svill be lighted and the  admission charge wili be reduced.  The band svill give its best music, the  exposition buildings svill.,be open and  lighted, the cleverest vaudeville turns  have been secured and everything svill  be done to make,the night show exceedingly attractive.  THE WASTE DUMP.  Emery varies in hardness  according  the amount of moisture  present,  ores  containing the  least  svater  being the  "hardest.  The most terrible- explosion of  powder was that at Brescia in 1767. A  stroke of lightning exploded 207,600  pounds of ammunition, destroying one-  ..thirdofthe city and killing 3,000" of  the inhabitants.  Ichnolites,  or  fossil  footprints, are  impressions  of   the  feet  of   animals,  originally made in  clay, sand or mud,  ���an d^refai n edjn^U^  resulting from the petrifaction, of  these materials. They occur mainly  in the new red sandstone formation, or  in the overlying strata of the lias.  Usually the tracks are of extinst genera of animals and frequently of forms  so strange that there is some uncertainty in referring them to their proper  place in the animal kingdom.  As depth was gained in the great  Comstock mines the heat increased  rapidly in the workings and after going belosv the 300-foot level the waters,  that always were abundant, grew  warm, and at the 1,000-foot level the  temperature became so depressive that  that the miners invariably wore simply  a loin cloth svhile at svork. When  1,500 feet svas reached each man svorked  just 15 minutes svith a pick, svhen he  handed it to another and then took his  place almost naked under a shosver  bath for 30 minutes, after svhich lie  resumed his formei occupation.  In commerce mercury is usually contaminated svith a small proportion of  dissolved metals, svhich cause a globule  to lose its spherical shape and drag a  tail behind it while flowing over an  inclined surface. If the mercury is  shaken in the air, these metallic impurities become oxidized and form a  black powder or scum, svhich incloses  small drops of the metal, thus preventing them from coalescing Mercury  in this condition is said to be floured.  Commercial mercury is best purified  by distillation, but for ordinary pur-  pases the impurities may be removed  almost entirely by repeated agitation  svith dilute nitric acid or perchlorate  of iron, either of svhich attacks the im-  ���ouriues and forms svith them soluble  nitrates aud chlorides, respectively,  which are removable by washing with  svater.  The   pyramids  of Egypt  are   built'  of limestone,   and  they  stand   upon a  limestone plateau.  Harvard college is the oldest institu-  tutioii of the kind in the United States,  being founded in 1636.  Sulphur occurs in combination with  other elements, forming the large and  important groups of minerals, the sulphides and the sulphates, Of the stu-  phide minerals, the combinations svith  the metallic elements are of'primary  industrial importance, and, svith the  possible exception of the iron sulphides, they form the ores from svhich  many of the base metals are obtained.  Mount Hecla in Iceland is an isolated,  volcano 20 miles from the coast. Its  loftiest peak is slightly over 5,000 feet  Mount Hecla has a record of 43 eruptions since the tenth century, the last  in 1878. The worst eruption svas in  1783, and from that time to September,  1846, >t remained quiet. In 1845, however, il afinin became active, and for  fifteen months svas in convulsion,  causing alarm in the Orkney islands,  400 miles asvay.  In a recent - publication on the  "Origin of Radium," Mr, Bertram B.  Boltwood has shosvn that the proportion between the uranium and the radium in minerals is constant. One of  the interesting facts brought out by  Mr. Boltsvood's investigations, especially as they refer to monazite, is  that the thorium apparently does not  participate in the production of radium  and that the radioactivity of monazite  is due to its uranium contents.  The Hare mountains, famous for  their mineral wealth, lie in the northern part of Germany, about sixty  miles through Prussia, Brunswick and  Anliall, between the rivers Weser and  Elbe. This range is mainly composed  of Devonian add lower carboniferous  formations, broken through svith  granite, and is divided into Upper and  Lower Hare. The highest point is  only 3,475 feet. The minerals produced are . silver, iron, lead, copper,  Zinc and arsenic. The silver mines  have been worked for several centuries.  During 1904 the production of tin  ore in the United States amounted to  159 short tons, which contained from  40 to 70 per cent of metallic tin and  svas obtained from deposits near Gaff  ney, S: C; Tinton, S. D., and Buck-  Creek, Alaska. Nearly all of this tin  ore was shipped to England, to be  smelted. Although about 40 per cent  of the tin produced in the world is consumed in the United Slates, there has  beeti practically no production of the  metal in this country until the last  year or tsvo.  The salt mines near Carcrosv, Gali-  cia, the greatest in the world, have  been worked since the eleventh century. In the twelfth century they belonged to Poland, and in the fourteenth century Casimir the Great established regulations for their working and many of his ideas prevail at  the present time. The mines are.-now  in possession of Austria. So valuable  are they that numerous kings of Poland drew their principal revenue from  ��heni._i_7_he_iexcav���atioiis_^exceecL^50jy  miles, and carved from the solid salt  are many structures, temples and  statues.  In the chemical laboratory of the  Welsbach Lighting company, of Gloucester City, N. J., a great many chemical compounds have been made of the  rare earths found in monazite, and  considerable experimental svork has  been done to discover svhat economic  use could be made of these compounds.  During 1904 a series of experiments  svas made by Messrs Charles Basker-  ville and T. B. Poiist to determine the  economic value of some of those rare  earth compounds as .mordant!?. Their  } eneral conclusion is that the rare  earths can have little practical appli-.  cation as mordants.  In determining the specific gravity  of minerals, Moh's scale is used, based  on ten standards of comparison, as folio vs.: 1, talc; tsvo, gypsum; three, cal-  citej four, fltiorite; 5, apaPite; six,  feldspar; seven, quartz; eight, topaz;  nine, sapphire; ten, diamond. A  mineral svhich svill not scratch or be  scratched by apatite, has a hardness  of 5. When, however a mineral can  be marked by feldspar but not apatite  its hardness is betsveen 5 and 6. The  finger nail will scratch minerals of a  hardness betsveen 1 and 2, while a knife  blade svill scratch minerals up to 5,  but not over.  Cook's Cotton Root Compound.

ESTIMATES FURNISHED*  | GREENWOOD,   :   B. C.  00<K>0��0<>0<)<>OOOOOOOOOOOOOOd  Grand Forks, B. C, Aug. 27, 1905. .  Editor Boundary Creek Times.  Dear Sir : I notice in your paper,  dated August 25th, an article entitled  "A Few Pointers." 'As several serious charges are made in it against me  as license commissioner for the Boundary district, I beg you will allow me  this opportunity of stating "A Few  Facts," as "Pointers" are sometimes  misleading,  I do not think, Mr. Editor, that you  have made these charges with malicious intent, but rather through lack  of reliable information. In the first  place you state that "Arthur H. Law-  der was appointed by wire to succeed  A. E.Rainey as commissioner. Ircer-  t j inly did receive a wire dated June  15th, from F. J. Fulton, provincial  secretary, which read as follows : "You  were appointed 14th inst., license commissioner for Boundary Creek district."  On the same day I also received an  official letter from the provincial secretary, dated 13th June. This proves  that my appointment was made on the  13th June arid not on the last moment  by wire.  Secondly, you state that -'Arthur H.  Lawder, as a member of the board,  was a party to illegally granting a  license to Lloyd A. Manley in Midway." An examination of the minutes  of the meeting will show you that  nothing illegally was done as stated.  Mr. Manley made his application under  clause 14, Liquor License Act, in  which it says : -'A license "may be  granted for a building either in course  of construction, or: to be constructed,  upon filing with the chief license inspector, plans and specifications of  the proposed building." These plans  were laid before the board by Mr.  Manley at the meeting and the license  was only granted subject to the inspection of the building by the chief  license inspector.  On further examination of the  minutes it will be found that Arthur  H. Lawder was the one member who'  opposed the granting of said license  on the grounds that Midway had already sufficient hotels to accommodate  the public. Then a petition was  handed in from the residents of Midway, backed by Mr. Whiteside, a  lawyer of Greenwood,; asking that  only six licenses be granted in Midway.  There were four hotels running at.  that time, a fifth application was in  for the Oakland hotel, arid the sixth  applied for by Mr. Manley. The other  two commissioners agreed to grant  Mr. Manley ais license as it was the  next application before the board.  Thirdly, you say that '.'Arthur H.  Lawder was a party to illegally granting a license to one Dufour." With  jregard io this I would say that Mr.  Dufour's application was also made  under clause 14, in his own name and  for himself and not, as stated, for Mr.  *K"*P'*C'*C��Cj?K*��?-*^*P^'*^'K*^*^lf*')���-.  1S.

Grierson 1  fc   fc HOUSE  fc SIGN and       PAINTER  % ORNAMENTAL ���  m\ I!  fc Nice Stock of Wall  Paper to ctioose from  'fc  *  B  V.  **  Manley, he having a lease of the  premises which he produced in court.  This hotel will be five miles away  from any other licensed building and  was granted for the accommodation of  the traveling public.  Fourthly, I wish to say most emphatically that I.am not at present in  the employ of Lloyd A. Manley, as  stated in your paper, nor have I at any  time been in his employ, nor have Ii  ever had a proposal from him io that  effect. I' would further add that the  Grand Forks Liquor Co. referred to is  an incorporated company and not the  property of Mr. Lloyd A. Manley;  though he is the manager of the same.'  lam not in the employ of the Grand  Forks Liquor company, neither have I  ever worked for them. For your  guidance I would tell you that I am in  the employ of the McKinley Mines,  limited, and have been for several  months, and am likely to continue as  far as I know.  The letter referred to in your paper  of above date from the attorney-general, was only received on August 18j  and the Dufour license was granted on  July 15th, su'uject, of course, to his  compliance with the act.  I hope, Mr. Editor, that in the future you will make yourself cognizant  of the facts before again using my  name in a public manner. Trusting  that you- will give this letter the same  publicity that you gave to "A Few  Pointers.''   I remain, yours truly,  Arthur H. Lawder.  [The Boundary Creek Times cheerfully gives Mr. Lawder's letter the  same publicity as was given to "A Few  Pointers." The editor of the Times  refuses to be drawn into any discussion with any individual member of  the board of license commissioners for  the i- Boundary district. The Times  made explicit charges against that  body, acting in its public capacity,  and referred to'��� the improper position  which Mr. Lawder occupied as a member of the board. These charges and  his reference stand, so far as we are  are concerned, and members of thu  board cannot purge themselves of any  stigma which may be attached by en-  gagingin a newspaper controversy.���  The Editor.]  Chamberlain's  Cough  Remedy  Aids  Nature.
