Copper   Street..  ���>:��>��� _-x��>****^*:^  The long lull in railway progress, in  which a few men were working and  munv others looking on, is apparently  ou the eve of coming to an end.  That the track has reached Molson  there is little reason to doubt,, fo*; on  Thursday, 201 h, it had passed McBride  station about: a! mile, and had a little  less than four miles of straight going  to reach Molson, with no more trestles  to delay. (, '���_ ���  West of Molson all the grading has  been completed to Oroville, and on past  Oroville for 22 miles further to the B.C.  boundary, north of Nighthawk. Then  there intervenes about, six miles between (he boundary iiiie and Armstrong's, upon which No. 3 Camp has  been at work-for ov*.*r five mouths and  which will take about three more weeks  to complete,  .i "Work has commenced on the bridge  over the Okanagou river at Oroville,"  'say*, the'Hedley'.Gazette, "but so far as  we are concerned at Hedley, interest  centers in the probable action of the  contractors ...whose', outfits have been  stored at Midway for over two months  awaiting the track lo reach Molson to  transport their outfits there,- and also  awaiting the letting of contracts west  of' Keremeos;. fo*i} a.sTyfel no con tracts  have been lei. any further, iip the river  than Keremeos. These contractors are  gelling tired waiting, and during the  past two weeks, have .become fidgety.  Their impatience is likely to prove a  factor in bringing an end to the period  of sluggish inactivity that has characterized the operations, of the past two  months, and it is,not improbable ��� that  wc may hear any day ol Ihe letting of  more contracts this side of Keremeos���  a consummation devoutly to be wished  for." '���'  ''The railroad has at last, reached  Molson,"-says the Independent. "The  track was finished to the. depot grounds  at this place today and the crew will  | move camp from (he McBride place,  where they have been camped for some  .liiive,,aii(ll1wilLpiit^iii,the=tiecessaryi.side-  track's and the big Y at this place and  will then proceed with the work toward  Oroville.-. The ballasting crew is some  eight or ten miles behind the tracklay-  itig crew and are expected to arrive  here within a week or ten days.  "A.

He has a force  of eleven men at work on the line. It  is said thai a regular service-- will be  pttl on as soon as the different departments ofthe road is finished to Molson,  and J. F. Royer is making arrangements to move the headquarters of his  passenger stage line from Terry to  Molson as soon as the trains start running. The bridge crew passed through  here this week aud are at work ou the  bridges between here and Oroville  getting ready for the tracklayiug crew.  The crew is in charge of Robt. McDonald. The bridge crew is preceeded  several days by the pile driver, which  is now at the John McDonald ranch.  The tracklaying crew will be within  sight of Oroville in about two weeks "  J. W. .Stewart, who is associated with  Pat Welch in the building of the V.,  V. & E., has announced that in addition to the sleel being laid to Molson,  the roadbed is ready for the lies as far  as Keremeos and that the construction  of the grade will be finished to��� itliat  place in about thirty days. Although  Mr. Stewart has not said so, it is pretty  definitely understood that as soon as  the Keremeos section is completed and  ready for transportation the heavy outfits will be moved and put to work on  the Kerenieos-Princetou division.  WINING NOTES  W: H. Jeffery came dow'u from the  Crescent on Wednesday. He reports  the mine improving- all the time." Work  on the shaft lias reached the 170-foot  level and will be continued until a  depth of 200 feet has been reached,  after which stoping and drifting will  be commenced. At l.'ie present time  the vein is running 3% to 7 inches in  width. The ore is very clean and is  studded with antinionial and ruby silver. Selected samples of the ore would  rim to extraordinary, values, but the  a verage vvilliexceed $100" per ton. It is  the intention of the owners io put in  an electric compressor- as soon aa it  can be shipped aud installed.  The Strathmore is preparing to  ship  a car of ore to' the Nelson smeller.  The Elkhorn mine continues lo yield  encouraging- results and the owners  say it is looking better every day.

The  ceremony was performed by Rev. John  Fernie. Mr. ami Mrs. McKendry cam,  on to Greenwood, and have taken up  their residence here.  OBITUARY.  The death occurred last Saturday of  Andy Olson, aijed 28 vara. The late  Mr. Olaou, who had been living iu  Greenwood but a short time, was a  victim of typhoid I'ever. The funeral  took place Tuesday aft. inoon from the  Presbyteriau church, under the* auspices of the Miners' union. Rev. M. D.  McKee conducted the services.

IN BULKLEY VALLEY  Mayor Naden Tells of His  Visit.  G0LD,SILVER AND COPPER  Extensive Areas Heavily Mineralized.  ���Coal Areas Close at Hand Make  Smeltin_ Practical.  While absent on his trip to the Bulk-  ley valley, Mayor G. R. Naden met  most of the Greenwood people who  went up last year. Most of them will  return again this autumn, hut some  have decided to remain over winter.  Ben Peterson has returned and Bruce  Craddock and George Finley were preparing to return when Mr. Naden seen  them last. J. L. Hatch has taken up a  pre-emption and will remain. T. F.  Sutherland, assayer, is located at  Telkwa, near the Telkwa mines. This  is about ninety miles from 'Hazelton,  in the midst-of: a rich raining country.  Mr, Sutherland is - established in his  profession and is working up a good  practice.  "The Telkwa mines," said Mr, Naden, "were located by Colonel Topping  aud"C. H. Schipster. Colonel Topping  is largely interested in these proper-  lies and has associated .with him J. R.  Drummbiid of ihe Dominion Copper  Co. These mines are copper bearing  properties and are located some twenty-  five niiles from the expected route of  the G T. P. The Telkwa mineral  belt is rather extensive and already  some seventy or more claims have been  opened up and theshpwing of copper its  as Cue as anything T have seen _vea* in  the famous BoiuKlary."-;"- -*^ * ,  VfCINS 100K'KRT -WIDE.     7  "The Telkwa Mining & Development  Co.," continued Mr. Naden, "are the  main interests at work there. They  have located and laid ..'put the Telkwa  townsite and have some thirty claims,  and nior..* are being located all the time.  The ore. occurs in tsvo kinds of veins,  one high grade and one a lower grade.  The richer ores are in narrow veins,  while the second grade ores are found  in veins running as wide as 100 feet."  Mr. Nadeii brought home with him  him assays of ore carrying values itf  gold, silver and copper exceeding SIOO  per ton.  r,AKGK. MINKKAl,' AKKA.  A large area rif country was covered,  all.m i necalized^to agreater��� or-less ex- -  tent. Big dykes of apparently valueless rock assayed sufficiently, high in  silver and copper to make them of value  when the development of the com.try  has reached a stage where ores can be  treated as cheaply as they can in  Greenwood, The country is fairly well  timbered and almost adjoins a rich coal  bearing area which will make it possible to erect smelters and treat the ore  on the spot. The whole future ofthe  country depends upon the building of  railways and there is every reason to  believe that when the G. T. P. and  Canadian Northern lines are finally  built, the country will go forward with  leaps and bounds.  Mr. Naden naturally made good use  of his time while away and located several claims that promise to eventually  yield splendid results.  THE COPPER MARKET  Nuw York, Oct. 4- Copper is again  active and exceedingly strong. f,ake  is selling at 20 cents per pound and  electrolytic at 19*i eeuts. for delivery  up to the end of this year. Sales are  beiug- made a quarter ol" a ceut bel.iw  these prices for deliveries in Jauiciry  and February. Ace irdiug to the best  information that can In* obtained there  is not sutiicient metal available, to .supply the present demand. Consumers  arr bidding against each other audit  is uot improbable that prices may go  two or three cent.*, highrr  temporarily.  The bounty paid by the Canadian  government on petroleum product*-,  amounted to S291,157 in \(X)S 6 as compared with S3 5,047 in tlie year previous.

With the splendid showing  made by Greenwood ores at the  Nelson fair, and the trophies won  at Spokane, this district is receiving' a goodly share of well  earned publicity. At Nelson the  Boundary ore exhibit came very  near winning- the prize for the  best display, and lost to Ainsworth, not because their ores were  better, but because there were  more of them. Greenwood, however, won a fair share of distinction by the Strathmore mine winning the Granby cup for the best  display from any individual mine.  Again, Greenwood has been  distinguished by winning, at  Spokane, the silver cup for the  best district display of ores; the  silver cup for the best cabinet  display, aud the first prize for the  best individual mine exhibit, the  Strathmore again carrying oil  the latter prize.  The importance of the Spokane  triumphs will be the better appreciated when it is remembered  that the Boundary was in competition with exhibits from the  states of Washington, Idaho aud  Oregon, besides districts iu the  province of British Columbia. In  those states mining has beeu carried on much longer and more extensively than has been done here  and the success that has eotne to  the exhibit from the Boundary is  gratifying indeed.  This should all help to make it  easier lo interest capital in the  mines of Greenwood. When a  district can capture prizes iu competition svith a highly profitable  mineral country it is a pretty  sure thing that the mines are  valuable properties and good investments.  a household balm Z'-in-Bug has no  equal. Zam-Buk is to be regarded as  much a skin food as u medicine. When  skin disease, such as eczema, ulcers,  abscesses, running sores, etc., occur,  the skin needs increased vigor to overcome the evil. Zam-Buk provides it.  When you sustain a cut, a burn or a  bruise the surrounding tissue has to  do extra work to overcome the damage.  Zam Buk helps it. Ever since the  dasvn of creation vegetable essences  and extracts have been the proper  sources of human medicine, and in  Zam-Buk is found a blending of the  lines! herbal extracts it is possible, to  obtain.  Sufferers from any of the above  mentioned skin diseases should give  Zam-Buk a thorough trial. This unique  balm is also a cure for chapped hands,  chilblains, sore nipples, eczema, eruptions, itching, scaling sores, etc. ft  eases the pain and the itching of piles,  and stops the bleeding. For skin  rashes, ringworm or scalp sores in  children it is an effective remedy, and  for all purposes to which a household  balm may be put it is unequalled. All  druggists sell it at 50c. a box or post  free from Zam-Buk company, Toronto,  on receipt of price (6 boxes for S2.50).  Write for free sample box, seudinj one-  cent stamp to pay return postage.  pany, which will be held shortly.  It was decided to put a sidewalk on  Church street at. an approximate cost  of $360.  D. A. Banneriiian interviewed the  council regarding a- bill of SlfO, due  from the baseball club. This account  had been standing for some time, and  as the club was not in a position to pay  it, he wanted the council to help out  in the matter, it. was decided to donate  SlOO to the club to be used in settling  the account.  The following accounts were passed:  C. Gauvereau, wood, $5; Yale-Columbia Lumber Co., 310.07; White Bros.,  ,6.30; Ledge. Si SO; E. W. Bishop,  $114.90; W. C!. Gaunce, S5; Imperial  hotel, S90; G.

Council met last Monday night for  the usual transaction of business, Let-  tors were read from residents in block  Q, at the fool of Gold street, asking  for an extension of the ' water system  so that the service might be given  houses on that block. "Referred to  water committee. Several other requests were also received for water  service. After some discussion, it was  decided, 611 motion of Aldermen Nelson and Sullivan, that no extensions  be made unless the revenue*!to be derived therefrom would pay 15 per cent  on the outlay.  A.

They could not help but be impressed, and they, must have carried, away with them valuable  information which will help  largely in making* still better  known the vast resources nf lhe  Boundary.

It is interesting .-in_ amusing to read  the wonderful stories that originate in  Grand Forks. Passing events that are  of so common occurrence in other  towns that they receive only a passing-  notice, are magnified in that'enter'pris-.  ing metropolis into proportions of astonishing importance. Tf a runaway  hor,se sudden lv breaks the.monotony of  its sleepy existence or any adventurous  youngster plays truant from school,  instead of following the thorny paths  to knowledge, the event is promptly  published from the housetops, and the  whole world informed of the latest  sensation.  It is, however, in dealing with mining tiewsthat the Grand Forks news  mongers excel. Not being satisfied  with the bare facts, that are amply  .sufficient to prove the mineral wealth  of the Boundary district, recourse must  be made to glittering exaggerations,  which, instead of serving the purpose  ' to emphasize plain facts, actually make  them so ridiculously astounding that  .no one believes anything the article  st ites. Such a policy of colored'publicity has this effect, that the truth .is  not believed even when it is told.  SOMI*'RXAMI'I,KS.  Some examples may be cited. On  June 22nd-the Times published an account of the discovery of cobalt on the  Jersey claim, onj Wallace mountain.  The ore was assayed'and was found to  carry high value's in that precious  mineral. The local correspondent sent  the news to Spokane, the coast cities  audio Winnipeg. - About three weeks  later a Grand Forks dispatch appeared  iu the Spokesman-Review which was  an exaggerated copy of the Times'  story. This caused some.-aniusemen*i  , to Greenwood readers.  Thinking it time, no doubt, the  world was being treated to another  Grand Forks sensation, some enterprising correspondent resurrected the  cobalt story and sent the Spokesman *-���  Review a highly colored and grossly  exaggerated dispatch. This is the  latest sensation;  "Grand Forks, B. C, Sept. 29..--  Word reached here this evening of an  immensely rich strike of cobalt which  was made yesterday near West Bridge  ��� on the west fork of Kettle river. This  .strike is of gigantic proportions and  has created a great ..excitement in the  camps. It bids fair to rival the cobalt  camp in New Ontario. Prospectors  from all over .the country are flocking  into the camp and staking all the va-  cantground for miles around."  The strangest thing about it is that  no one has heard anything about it  except the originator of the story, aud  he-probably dreamed it.

In  a new country people are working daily  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis*-*  trict, and for the improvementof the con-'  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live.    Every act of daily life  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or  indirectly for the inv  provement of society generally,  In all tliis,  the  local newspaper plays  an important  part.   Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happen**'  ings,  and   becomes   a   welcome   weekly  messenger, bearing bright  and  welcome  tidings,     Amonr*r   its   outside   readers: it  forms    a   valuable   advertising   medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want  employment, business,  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking  investments.  In   the   upbuilding,  of a town, city  or  district the local paper  is an important factor.  BOUNDARY GREEK  TIMES  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do  its full, and-complete share in the upbuild/  ing and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary, district. It is not handjk.  capped in its work by any restraining ob/  ligations to any party, clique or corpora-*-  tion, but. it is . free at all times to rise up  and- promote the best/interests of the City  of Greenwood and its people. To. dp this  most' thoroughly, and satisfactorily the  Times must have the support and coopera/  tion of the citizens of Greenwood,  Every effort is being put forth to make  the Times the class of newspaper the  people want, Increasing attention is being  continually paid to mining news, especi/  ally of that nature that will interest those  employed in the work as well as those  whose capital is invested in the properties.

BELT,?  "H. G. Rec-Sec  R. H. Bggleston, secretary-treasurer  and director of the B. C. Copper Co.,  is paying a visit to the mines and  smelter of the company here. This is  his first visit to Greenwood, and in an  interview with the Times last night he  explained hiins.lf as being amazed,  delighted and thoroughly satisfied with  the tremeudous extent of the Mother  Lode working, with the comprehensiveness of the company's ore properties arid with the extent, completeness  and efficiency of the smelting plant.  He had been told of it by correspondence aud in private conversation, and  he had seen photographs illustrating  the properties and works, but not'until  he had personally visited them had he  gained but a slight conception of the  magnificent achievement here wrought  out, and of the boundless possibilities  before his company. It was a revelation to him and his satisfaction was  complete.  _1-RNA.CE BI.OWN IN.  On Tuesday last the first of the three  big new furnaces was blown in. Mr.  Rggleston turned ou the current of air  that, started lhe glowing fire and in  forty-five minutes, from the time the  draft was opened, the molten slag was  running iu the settlers. The work was  done without a hitch. The new machinery stood the severest tests and  proved a complete success from the  start. The second furnace will be  started as soon as sufficient power can  be secured, and the third will be used  when found necessary to handle the  steadily increasing output of the mines.  SUPKKIOK   FT-KNACKS.  The furnaces, each With a capacity  of 500 toils daily, are of a new design  and are considered superior to any  others now in use. Prior to making  arrangements for the improvements to  the smelter, J. E*. McAllister, manager  for the company, visited all the leading  smelters in America, and became  -faniili-i.r with the best features of them  all. Before placing the orders for tlie  new furnaces they were planned to include all that was lies! in other types,  with the result that as they stand today  they are the embodiment of all the  best features known in furnace con  struction. Mr. McAllister stated they  were much easier to keep in thorough  working order aud much easier to  handle than the old ones formerly used.  IMPROVHD MMTHODS.  The method of handling the slag is  TfKrTljf-t'lie system t^wlTiclTmliciraf-"  tention has been given. It was form  erly hauled away in five oi six ton  pots, requiring two men to operate.  Th. new pots have a capacity for  twenty-live tons and one man drives  the electric motor aud by the simple  touch of a lever dumps the mollen  mass down the slag pile. Under the  old system it was necessary to have  two tracks running past the. settlers,  for while the pot was beiug emptied  from one side another had to be filled  from the other, necessitating continual  attention from the men in charge.  Under the new system all slag is laken  from but one side. When the great  pols have been filled from the steady  Htream, au immense automatic ladle  swings round aud receives the slag  while the pots are being emptied. On  the return of the empty pots ihe man  in charge lunches a crank, the ladle is  emptied into the pot and swings back  to its place, ready for use when again  required. This is a device especially  constructed to meet a need peculiar to  the B. C. Copper Co's. plant and its  desigu was conceived by Mr. McAllister and executed * by Mr. Williams.  These are but examples of the manv  improvements which make the new  plant the most trodern in Canada caud  one of the best iu America.  Mt'THKI- LODE A Sl-Kl'ltlSK.  'In speaking uf the Mother Lode  mine. Mr. Rgglestou became reininis-  i.ent. He went back tothe autumn of  1896, when the late J. F. Tichenor,  then president of the B. C. Copper Co .  had purchased the mine. Mr. Tichenor  had secured the advice of experts and  had paid his price. He then came to  visit it. and after inspecting the property sat down on a log and cursed the  day he had been swindled into buying  such   a   pile  of   worthless   rock.    He  lived, however, to realize something of  the immense value of the property. To  Mr. TSgglestou it was a wonderful property, no less fur its vast extent than  for the economical manner in which  the ore can be handled. "When it is  remembered," he said, "that from the  time the ore is blasted in the mine  uutil it is reduced to blister coprer, it  is not touched by human hands and is  handled by gravity, it will be realized  to what extent the best economy can  be utilized. We have lhe mines capable of producing a collection of ores,  iu the proper proportions, lo produce a  perfect llux, and with iron, sulphides  and silicions ores and the clay bank,  the B. C. Copper Co. holds the key to  the smelting industry of the district.  I have visited all the mines of the company and I believe in them the Boundary has a splendid paying proposition."  Speaking of W. L. Austin's recent  visit to the Mother Lode, Mr, McAllister stated that Mr. Austin had estimated a deposit of two million tons of  ore above the 200-fool level and a not her  million tons between Ihe 200 and the  300-foot level. Of the lower levels it  was impossible to estimate.  BEST COPI'ItR  ON  THT*  MA RKKT  Speaking of the quality of the B, C.  Copper company's copper, Mr. F,ggle-  stone told of an incident that recently  occurred in New York. It is-well  known that manufacturers of electrical  machinery ' demand the best grade of  copper obtainable. One of the.largest  manufacturers recently learned that a  firm of copper refiners were receiving  an exceptionally fine grade of copper  from the B. C. Copper company. The  manufacturer offered to pay a higher  price for this copper but the refiner**  refused to sell and upon being pressed  for an excuse were obliged to admil  they had to use B. C. copper to raise  the standard of the inferior products of  the American plants. Mr. McAllister  explained that hia company were able  to produce'such excellent results by  having ores free from dileterious and  non conductive substances aud by  their improved methods of working rp  fie. matte.  UNLIMITED  CREDIT  Of the financial standing of the  company, Mr. Egglestou spoke in the  highest terms. "We .have both the  money and the inclination to develope  our properties here. We have unbounded faith in their ability to .pay'  profits and-since visiting the mines  and smelter I have shown my personal  faith by purchasing more stock in the  open market at 100 percent premium.  It has been the experience of most  milling companies that in buying  machinery a cash deposit was required  with the order. Our experience has  been that we could get all the machinery we wanted and pay for it practically as we saw fit."  Mr. Fggleslon expressed himself as  highly pleased with the the present  management of the company. To Mr.  Keffer's tenacity was due the thorough  and consistent work carried out at the  Mother Lode and other mines and to  Mr. McAllister's engineering and business ability  was due the   splendidly  it if if a & n at is* ���tutt <.

"As the company's copper is sold in  the form of matte, it must be figured  as having a value ou the present market of ahout 18 cents a pound, a profit  of 10 cents per pound on an output of  9,000,000 pounds annually will give the  companj- net earnings of $900,000 next  year; THf-Tlvill-bT^ufficielUMtTTaka'  care of its sinking fund requirements  and leave about $1,50 per share for the  stock.

POWER econoaiv.  "Arrangements have recently been  made for an important reduction in the  cost of the companyjs power. At present, it is using about fiOO steam horse  power which is costing S135 per horse  power per annum. A contract has been  made with a local electric power company for 1,000 horse power at a cost of  only $30 per horse power per annum.  It is figured that this economy alone,  will amount to more than 1 cent per  pound of copper produced.  MINKS   ANll  DKVKI.O-*MENT.  "'The properties owned by the Dominion Copper company consist of about  400 acres. Several of the claims adjoin  the mines of the (Tranby Consolidated  Copper company. Included in this number are the Idaho. Brooklyn, Standard.  Stemwinder, Montezuma and Kawhide.  A large amount of development work  has been done on this group, ami the  greater portion of the ore now being  treated comes frum these mines. It is  estimated that they :i:ive sufficient ore  in sig'.'.l to supply the smelter with  1,200 tons dailv for a period of ten  years.  "Another group of properties located  at Deadwood, include:, tbe Atliclsoti,  Sunset,   Crown   Silver,   Morrison  and  G. O. D.    These claims are also being  developed.  "Al Summit, the company owns the  Mountain Rose mine front which -a  heavy sulphide ore containing small  values in copper, gold and silver is  being mined and sent to the smelter for  fluxing purposes.  "MANAGEMENT IN GOOD HAND,.  "The president of the Dominion  Copper company is ex-Senator Warner  Miller of New York. Samuel Newhouse,  the Salt Lake City mining magnate,  well known through his connection  with Utah Consolidated. Boston Consolidated and other large mining enterprises, is the general ���manager; and M.  M.Johnson, right hand man for Mr.  Newhouse, is consulting engineer. At  the mines T. \i. Drummoni' is superintendent and \V. C. Thomas is superintendent at the smelter.  "Mr. Newhouse personally bas recently expressed himself as very much  pleased wilh the developments at the  Dominion property. He believes it will  make a big and profitable mine.  "After returning from a recent visit  to the property M. M. Johnson declared that during his connection with the  company the mines had never looked  so promising aS Uiey do at the present  time.  EXPLORING OTHKI- PROPERTIES.  "Thoroughly progressive and wide  awake to its opportunities the management- of the Dominion Copper company  is constantly on the alert "to purchase  additional properties of merit when  they are offered at attractive prices. At  present he has two large groups of  claims under option and is spending  some money opening them up aiid testing* their value. The company will not '  buy prospects, but it is willing to use i  a portion of its treasury surplus fori  purchase of new properties provided'  it can secure those of demolish ated j  value which are practically sure to re-;  turn several times the price paid. '  "The policy  of the  management   is i  to build    for   the   future while  taking <  advantage,   at   lhe   same  time, of all  present   opportunities.    Dividends will j  probably  be   paid   on   the  stock   next;  year.    Development work   will be can-j  tinned meantime on a steadily increas- I  ing- scale, and as soon   as the manage-1  tneu't is warranted in   doing  so it   will!  ... i  provide greater smelting capacity, the i  expectation being that,  eventually the j  company may handle several'lhousaud !  ..-������.. ���     i  tons of ore per day and earn dividends :  which will entitle the stock to sell for j  al least five or six limes its present I  price. j  "It is ���pointed out that the .Granby;  compan}', which is now handling about !  2,400 tons ol ore daily, is earning an  excellent return on the market price  of its capital stock, which is now over  $17,000,000. The capital stock of the  Dominion Copper company, bonds included, is selling for less than $4,000,-  000. The ores of the mines owned by  the two companies ire almost identical,  and if the Dominion Copper company  can be made to produce and earn as  much as Granby is earning at present, !  it. will give its 500,000 shares of-stuck a  market value of over $30 per.share.
