J  Probably the Boundary district and  other sections of the province will derive more benefit from the visits of the  members of the tariff commission than  from any changes that are likely to be  made in the tariff. The commission  is comprised of Hon. W. S. Fielding,  minister of finance, chairman ; Hon.  Wm. Patterson, minister of customs ;  Hon. L" P* Brodeur, minister of inland revenue, and John* Bain, secretary. Hon. Senator Tenipleman, as a  member of the cabinet, has been invited to take part in the proceedings  at the sittings in this province. In addition to securing information relating  to the tariff, the members of the commission are anxious to make themselves thoroughly acquainted with  British Columbia and its resources.  Although a prominent member of the  Dominion ... government since the advent of Liberals to power in 1896, this  is the first opportunity Mr. Fielding  has had to visit British Columbia. To  day h_|is| as he himself now terms it,  an enthusiastic "booster" for British'  Columbia. His colleagues are equally  enthusiastic and it is safe to say that  in the future when anything comes up  in the house of commons affecting the  interests of this province, new and  sympathetic champions of the province  will be found iii the members of the  tariff commission.  THE VISIT HERE. !.'..  Tuesday the commission arrived in*  the Boundary after visiting Rossland  the previous day. Sightseeing in  Rossland, particularly underground, is  very fatiguing and Hon. Mr. Patterson found it necessary to go to Banff,  there to rest for a few days He was  accompanied by Miss Fielding and her  cousin, who are traveling with the  minister of finance. The minister of  customs regretted very much his inability to visit the Boundary, Duncan  Ross, M. P., met the met the visitors  at Grand Forks, and at Greenwood he  was joined by J. R. Brown, M. P. P.,  and Kenneth McKenzie, president of  the Greenwood Liberal association,  who exteuded-a cordial= welcomej===The-  party proceed to Midway by the afternoon train, and were met at the station by a large delegation of Midway  citizens, and representatives of the  Midway and Vernrm, and V., V. & E.  The ministers visited the "construction  work on both railways and were immediately impressed with the difficulties under which railways are constructed in this countro. Ferry was  also visited and visitors noted the contrast between the two railway towns  on opposite sides of the international  boundary line. Their comments were  not unfavorable to Midway. Another  surprise was awaiting them at the  Lancashire house. They were invited into the dining room and found a  gaily bedecked table loaded with.good  things. Flowers in abundance were  tastefully arranged, and these, with  home grown fruits displayed as only  Mrs. Dowding can, were a joy and a  wonder to the visitors. The luncheon  was purely informal and no speeches  were made. The visitors were then  driven to Greenwood.  THE SMOKER. ��  After dinner at the Imperial, a reception was tendered the distinguished  guests iu the rooms of the Greenwood  club, to which the public were invited.  About fifty of the residents of Green-  ��� wood and the surrounding district were  there to welcome the visitors. A new  surprise awaited the ministers. They  found that the big mining men were  the most versatile fellows in the world.  A. W. B. Hodges, who was introduced  to them as the general superintendent  of the biggest mining enterprises in  Canada, was next introduced to them  as a skilled musician, who could play  the piano, ler.d the chorus, sing a song  or conduct an opera. W. C; Thomas,  tha Dominion Copper company's superintendent, demonstrated that he was  equally ac home developing a new vein  of ore or an equally new and equally  intricate cake-walk. C. Scott Gallo-  wav, A. M. Whiteside, J. C. Cornish,  J. Kendell and others contributed to  the evening's entertainment.  A toast to the visitors was proposed .  and Messrs. Fielding, Brodeur and  Tenipleman respondod; All the  speeches were patticularly happy and  optimistic. They spoke in a hopeful  tone of the future of this great country  and they firmly believed that British  Columbia was to play no unimportant  part iu making Canada a great aud  prosperous conntry.  A very enjoyabld evening was concluded by a three-round contest between Stovve and Young, which was  fast aud furious, while it lasted.  THE SITTING.  The sitting of the commission was  held in the court house at 10 o'clock  Wednesday morning, Government'  Agent McMynn having' courteously  placed the court house at the disposal  of the commission. Mayor Naden, in  a neat speech,'cordially welcomed the  distinguished visitors. Incidentally  he pleaded with the commissioners not  to forget that the consumers had certain rights and that those rights should  not be lost sight of in protecting the  man uf acturers.  Mr. Fielding, in  reply, thanked  the  mayor for the cordiality   of the welcome.   He believed the mayor, in dis-^  cussing   the  tariff,   had   laid  down   a'   J  principle which any government could  wisely follow.  The smelting  and  mining industry,'  represented by  A B. W. Hodges, J. 15.  McAllister,    W.    C.   Thomas,   J.   R.   -���'  Drummond    Duncan    Mcintosh    and  others,  presented  their views   to   the  commission.    The sitting   was  an ex-,  tremely  interesting   one and while it  was anticipated it would not last more  than an hour it  was  after  one o'clock*  before the members of the commission  were:satisfied'.' The representatives of  the  big  mining  companies   had   pre-"  pared   a  memorial  succiently  setting  forth their demands.    This was placed  in the  hands of Mr.   McAllister, who  explained  their  requests  aud   at   the  same time gave a great deal  of  information   about   the   conditions    under  which the industry is being carried on.  . : Mr..'.'Fielding   asked question   after  question,   which   were   promptly   answered.    Occasionally  the minister of .  finance   would   piace   himself   in   the  position of the  Eastern manufacturer,  pleading for greater protection in order   ,  to draw out the arguments of the mining  men.    Mr.   McAllister  had at his  side   A.   W.   B.   Hodges   and   VV.   C.  Thomas, who ably  assistd him in the  discussion by asking many  questions  The minister of finance at  the close of   *  the session stated thut it was one of the  most important meeti-igs yet held.  The   memorial   of   the  mining   and  smelting  men''is*'given, below.     The  .greatest.stress.was laid,on_tlie_demand7  for the removalof the-duty on powder.  Evidence  was  given   to  show  that  a  combine  existed  between   the powder   .'  companies and that  the difference be- ���.  tsveen  the  price here   and   in   the adjoining  states  made  a��� difference   of-  nearly $42,000 in   mining operaiions in  ,the Boundary last year.    Evidence of:.;  the combine  was  produced  by D. W. ���-'���  Cummins of the Dominion Coppea com-o  pany    who   put  in   corresponeence  to.  show   that   the  American   representa-7-  tive of the powder companies-'.refused'..'7'  to   sell   in   Cananian   territory.    The  other strong request  was a reduction  of duty on all articles  use     in mini -g  and smelting not made in Canada.  tJuncan Mcintosh briefly stated the  case for the high grade mines. Below  is the menu-rial :  To Hon. W. S. Fielding. Hon. Wm.  Pattekson, Hon. L. P. Broueuk,  TAKI_K COMMIS.SIONKKS.  Sirs: The expenditure for mining  and smelting in the immediate district  which j ou are honoring today with  your visit was, during the past year,  in excess of three million of dollars.  This industry has been prosecuted for  thepisl eight year, without any appreciable return for invested capital.  In order that the industry be developed  to tha extent of even a small part of  its resources, more capital is necessary  and this can only be acquired by  achieved results. We believe that if  some ftatures of the existing tariff be  brought to your attention that you will  see tlie advisability of reducing the  burden in this respect in order to foster  an imporlant industry of this country.  We would suggest changes in the  tariff upon the following items:  1. Explosives.  2. St-uctural iron.  3. Bar steel.  4. Mining candles.  5. Rubber hese.  6- Iron pipe.  7. Rails.  8. Steel castings.  9. Machinery.  Concluded on page 6. BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.   H.   HALLET  Uakkistkr, Solicitor,  Notary  Public.  Ca'.ie Address:      hallett,"  ,.

Mr. Brodeur, minister of-in-  land revenue, aud Hon. Senator  Tenipleman. The latter is no  stranger, as he finds time each  succeeding* year to come here and  note the remarkable progress of  the district. Mr. Fielding is  easily not only one ot" the brightest men in public life today but  takes a leading place iu the front  ranks of the statesmen whose  names are closely- identified with  tlio. history of Canada. Naturally  brilliant, aud with a seemingly  inexhaustible capacity for hard  work, he wants to see everything  worth seeing and make himself  thoroughly acquainted wilh every  part of the Dominion. Mr. Brodeur is oneoof the strong men  from   Quebec,   which   is   today  sending to the Dominiou parliament a class of members who in  debate, in their knowledge of  public affairs are the equal if  they do not outclass the representation from the other provinces  Canada is growing. The men  who are ia charge of it's affairs  are managing a veritable empire.  They have seen the Boundary, its  mines, its smelters, and they  have gone away believing that in  the work of making Canada a  great nation the exploitation of  our low grade mines will play no  small part.  The best friends of British'Columbia in the Dominion parliament are those who have seen  the province. The Times believes the province has found  new but powerful friends in  Messrs. Fielding, Patterson and  Brodeur.  SATISFACTORY RESULT.  Greenwood electoral district is  to have a board of license commissioners of its own. The McBride government was forced to  yield to the pressure of party  friends and. others and relieve  this district from the peculiar  operations of the Grand Forks  gang. The new board will be  appointed immediately. It is understood that the members thereof are to be Geo. Cunningham,  James Kerr and J. 1_. Jackson.  All are men of strict integrity,  and with such a board the public  have even' assurance that under  no circumstances can there be a  repetition, of those recent manipulations which were a disgrace to  a-Britishprovince....'  THE-'PIONEERS.  The new smelter aud Grand  Forks are still flirting with each  other.  i^mmmmmwmmmmmwmmmmmtd  There were a number of  Liberals iu the citp Tuesday and  Wednesday.  Gka_t must be scarce with the  American customs officials when  they hold up a coffin.  The Pioneers of Boundary and  Southern Okanagan are to be  congratulated on the success attending their recent banquet.  They are a.body of men to whom  this district owes much. They  are responsible for the initial development which led to making  this the most important mining  district in Canada, and their work  was done amid great hardships  and but little encouragement.  The organization of this baud of  men into a society was a happy  suggestion and the Times joins  with the matiy, other friends of  the Pioneers "in wishing them  prosperity and comfort.  The determined hostility of  the C. Pi R. to the Grand Trunk  TPacTITc^ wliTcTi^lIalr^fOiTiTd^opeti"  expression in the past fortnight,  confirms the West in its judgment that for the present, aud for  some years to come it will be desirable to continue the Liberals  iu power. Not until the Grand  Trunk Pacific is in 'Operation  from ocean to ocean will it be  safe to put in office a government  which will take its'railway policy  from E. B Osier, M. P., director  of the C. P. R. The disposition  ou the part of the Conservatives  to make it impossible for the G.  T. Pacific to compete with the  C. P. R. will not be forgotten by  the voters.-Winnipeg Free Press.

Distance System Fi nished  to Greenwood.  The British Columbia Telephone  company has made great improvements in its system during- the past  twelve months in different parts of  Southern British Columbia. The service in Rossland was changed last  year, a new metallic system being installed and new poles replacing the old  ones and the service placed in first-  class shape.  Last winter a telephone system was  installed at Eernie by the company,  which caused considerable excitement  in that burg and some litigation between the company and the city.  The Crow's INest Pass Coal company  finally purchased the system and the  City of Fernie paid all costs of litiga-  tion. ;  Work on the long distance telephone  line was commenced the 4th of June of  this year, at L,aurierx>n the boundary  line, whence it was continued to Cascade, Grand Forks, Phoenix, the work  occupying nearly four months. About  eleven hundred poles were used in the  construction of the new line. These  poles are 30 feet in length, not less  than 9 inches in diameter at the top  and 14 inches at the butt. The butts  are treated with carbolineum to preserve the wood. The distance between  poles is ISO feet. Each pole carries  from two to ten wires. In the cities,  of course, more wires are used.  This work has given employment to  upwards of twenty men during the  four-months of construction, and owing  to the good management displayed  and the skill of the men employed  there has been little or no interruption of the service, considering the  rough nature of the ground over which  the line occasionally passes and the  difficulties encountered during the process of transferring the wires.  The'work has been carried on under  the supervision ot G. C. Hodge, district superintendent, with S. S. Irwin  directing operations, and. it is needless to remark that ueither trouble  nor expense has been spared to.make  the the system an- up to-date one in  every particular.  Work will now be transferred to Nelson, where a new office has been erected, and where,the system will undergo a thorough overhauling, as was  done last year in Rossland.

The night shows promise to be the big  feature of this year's fair at Spokane,  and are expected to draw bigger crowds  than come to the daylight exhibitions.  MINERAL EXHIBIT.  E. E. Alexander, superintendent of  the mining department of tha Spokane.  Interstate fair, which is held October  9 to IS, was in the Boundary country  of,British Columbia last week, interesting the managers of the big mines  in the fair. He reports that the mine  owners are more interested this year  than ever before in the Spokane fair  becaure it is known ' thousands of  eastern visitors will be at the fair and  mining men as well as otners believe a  good showing of the resources of the  country ought to be made. Those  properties which have mining-exhibits  at Spokaue expect to add their newer  samples and those which have nothing  at Spokane will send ores. The different camps also are interested in the  contest for the silver cup which is to  be given this year to the camp making  the best district exhibit of minerals.  Mr. Alexander will spend most of  his time prior to the opening of the  fair visiting Camps.  Dr. Mecklenburg, lhe famous eye  expert, will be at the Thomas Drug  store, Greenwood, Oc. 23-23; Midway,  26 27; Phoenix, 20-22. Save your sight  by consulting him.

Entries for land for agricultural pur-  "poses-'tnap=be-"'made=personally���at-the-  local laud office for the district in  which the land to be taken ia. situated,  or if the homesteader desires, he may,  on application to the-Minister of the  Interior at Ottawa, the Commissioner  of Immigration at Winnipeg, or the  local agent for -the-District, within  which the land is situated, receive au  thority for some one to make entry for  him.  A fee of $10 is charged for a homestead entry.       "7  A settler who has received an entry  for a homestead is reduired to perform  the conditions connected therewith  under one of the following plans:  (1) At least six months'residence on  nnd cultivation of the land in each  year during the term of three years.  It is the practice of the Department  to require a settler to bring 15 acres  under cultivation, but if he prefers he  may substitute stock; and 20 head of  cattle, to be actually his own property,  with buildings for their accommodation will be accepted instead of the cultivation.  (2) If the father (or mother, if the  father is deceased) or any person who  is eligible to make a homes'eod entry  under the provisions Of the Act, resides upon a farm in the vicinity of  the land entered for by such person as  a homestead, the requirements of the  Act as to residence prior to obtaining  patent may be satislicd by such person  residing with the father or mother.

JOHNSON, THE WASTE BUMP.  Gold is the most malleable of all  metals, and those next-in order are  silver, copper, platinum, iron, aluminum, tin, zinc and lead  The  largest  municipal   museum  in  .world is the American museum of  Natural History, New York city. The  mineralogical collection alone in this  museum has cost upwards of S300,0rj0.  In 1821 Mexico threw open her mines  to foreigners, offering special facilities  and inducements. The real history of  Mexican mines dates from the advent  of English and American capital into  that.'country.  Meteorites are of two classes���the  the stone and the iron. The former  are about ten times as numerous as  the latter. In the iron meteoiite, iron  usually forms more than 90 per cent of  the entire mass, but they are almost  invariably alloyed with nickel. In the  stony meteorites mineral combinations  occur which are peculiar to these  bodies and serve as one of the main  features in recognizing them when  they were not seentat the time of their  fall.  AtLivet, France, the Keller electric  furnaces for smelting iron ore are vat-  . shaped, and connected at their lower  ends by a central  well; four  are  usn-  * ally grouped together. The current  used in tne trial runs varied between  S10.600 and 12,000 amperes, at voltages  from 63 to 68; and the energy absorbed  Was 0.25 h. p. year per ton of a white  pig iron containing little silicon and  manganese, and 0.53 n. p. year for a  gray iron more silicious. The coke  used averaged 767 pounds per ton of  pig iron.prod need, and the estimated  cost of electrodes was 84 cents per ton  of iron.  The death rate from coal mine accidents >in Japan in 190s was 1.71 per  thousand; in, Russia,  2.53,   and in the  * United-States, 3.26.  The oldest   mineralogical   collection  ���in the United States is that  owned by  Harvard university, the  foundation of  which collection was begun in 1793.  Smelters in California buy thequartz  from the miners for fluxing purposes,  paying on t.ssay value. In this way  some hundreds of small mines are enabled to run at a profit.  Rocks that show special structure,  due to their once having been in a  molten state from which they were  solidified into their present chaaacter,  in Geology are known as igneous  They include lava, basalt, granite, etc.  Such rocks are not stratified, and may  occur in connection with sedimentary  rocks of any age,, as the igneous rocks  have usually been erupted from the interior of the earth and forced upward.  There are now in the United States  352 museums of all kinds, of which 240  are known as natural history museums  and 15 as science and fine arts. One  hundred and seventy-eight of of these  museums are attached to "schools and  colleges, 32 are controlled by societies,  16 are private or municipal institutions  and 30 have been established by the  ��� state_rindJeder.n_goy.erjTiuent,s.^=^^iT^  There are three important metals  that do not occur native���tin,-zinc and  nickel. Iron occurs native in infintisi-  mal quantities. Native lead is a decided rarity. Quicksilver occurs native  in small quantity. Native zinc was  reported from Georgia years ago, native tin was reported occurring in Siberian placers, native nickel was supposed to have been found in New  Caledonia. Investigation found these  discoveries to have beeti untrue.  A zinc aoof of the proper gauge  weighs from 125 to ISO pounds per 100  square feet; of lead and copper, 800  pounds; of slate, 700 to 900 pounds,  and of tiles, 1,500 pounds.  The'nitrogenous casein of skim milk  is used in the manufacture of a new  electrical insulator, called galalite,  sold in Germany. It can be tooled  easily, and compares favorably as an  insvlator with ebonite and porcelain.  Twenty-five years ago the loss in  silver-lead smelting was 20 per cent of  the content of the ore in those metals;  today the loss of lead is seldom in excess of 5 per cent, of silver less and of  gold practically nothing.  Millmen in Gilpin county, Colo., now  receive S2.50 per day of eight hours,  whereas heretofore they had worked 12  hours at S3. In consequence mill owners have advanced the cost of milling  about 12 per cent, per ton, or about 51  per ton, practically making mine operators pav for the change in the mill-  men's wages.  The silver mines of Schnee'oerg in  Saxony in the fifteenth century produced some enormous masses of native  silver, the greatest having been a lump  weighing 563 pounds, a mass th it even  to this day  has   never been  equaled.  In 1750 there was taken from a mine i  near Freiberg a lump weighing 169  povnds. In the Royal museum at  Copenhagen is a mass of native silver  six feet long, two feet broad and eight  inches thick which was taken front a-  niine near Koenigsburg, Norway.  The famous meerschaum mines near  Eskichehir, in Asia Minor, are said'to  have been first worked a tho.isand  years ago. In a space of six miles  there are over 20,000 excavations, and  today only a couple of hundred of  these are operated, the others being  exhausted. Meerschaum is mined in  blocks, which are cleaned, scraped and  cut with a knife, the mineral being  still soft and readily cut into any  shape wanted. The annual output of  meerschaum does not exceed 150 tons.  It is soft when first mined but hardens  when dry.  Marbles are rounded balls of broken  clay, marble, agate and other mineral  substances. In Saxony, where are  made millions of these playthings, the  mineral most used is a hard, calcareous  stone that is first broken up iuto square  blocks with. a hammer. Tnese are  then thrown 10o or more together into  a mill that is. constructed of a stationery, flat slab of stone,, with a mini  ber'of concentric furrows upon its face.  G-ver this a block of rock of the same  diameter, partially resting lipon the  small stones, is kept revolving while  water Hows upon the stone slab. In  15 minutes the marbles are worn completely round, and are ready for  market. -  A Real Fair This Year 2�� Better Than Ever Before  The Twelfth Annual  FAIR  OCTOBER 9 TO 15,1905  OPEN DAY AND NIGHT  Wonderful displays of Pain's Famous Pyrotechnics, presenting " The Fall of Port Arthur" in Flaming Fireworks  Larger Exhibits in every department of* the Fair.

On Friday evening of last week the  annual reunion of the Pioneers of  the Kettle River _nd Southern Okanagan was held in the Lancashire house,  Midway.  Previous to the banquet a business  meeting was held at which the following officers were elected :  President-���John East. ��� ..  Vise-Presidents���John McLaren,  Carson; J. W. Nelson, Greenwood;  Hugh Cameron, Camp McKinney, and  D. Carmichael, Fairview.  Secretary���J. R. Jackson, Midway.  Treasurer, Jas. Kerr, Gieenwood.  It was decided to admit to membership persons coming into the district  in 1895 6.   .  The society was formed at Boundary  Falls in March, 1900, the chief promoters being Thos. McAulay, Dr.  Jakes, Thomas Walsh, J. W. Nelson,  John East and James Kerr. .Since  then the majority of those who were  in the district previous to July, 1904,  have become members. The objects  of the organization are similar to those  of other fraternal organizations���to  relieve the distressed, care for the  helpless and bury the dead. There has  been but one death among the members sincethe organization was formed  that of John Thornton.  _I_E BANQUET.  About forty members and guests attended the banquet, which was presided over by the retiring, president,  Mr. P. T. McCallum of Grand Forks.  After an excellent repast, the chairman proposed the health of the "King."  After the National Anthem had been  sung, short speeches were made by  R. Gardom, customs officer at Midway,  and Gold Commissioner Kirkup of  Rossland. Both expressed their pleasure at being present, and the high  esteem in which they held the pioneers  who did so much in opening'up the  mining camps of British Columbia.  " The Pioneers and Canada,, brought  to their "feet Jas. C. Dale and P; T.  McCallum. Mr. Dale said he had  traveled over most of the Western  States from his home iti Illinois and  had not found a resting place" untitle reached the Boundary, where he  met the most whole-souled people he  believed in the world. So pleased had  he been with the people and the  country that he had become a Canadian. He didn't know much about  Canada but he knew all about. the  the Boundary and her pioneers.  Mr. McCallum���Fellow pioneers, for  me to say that 1 am pleased to be with  you to night is. to use a common ex-  preisioir; ' '~pti t ting "it in ilu 1 yf' ,i=^In-  looking over the programme for this  evening I find that the first item on  the list is the "President's Address."  Now, although I am a pioneer, the majority of you know that I am not a  speech-maker, but I feel that I can no*-,  allow this opportunity to pass without  endeavoring in some way to say a few  words on behalf of my fellow pioneers,  and the country in which we live. .  Were I capable of nuking a speech  or could I find words to express my  feelings on this occasion, I feel satis-  lied that all I would wish to say would  fill a volume.. Suffice it to say, however, that I am unable to find words to  express the feeling of gratitude I owe  to my fellow members for the confidence which they placed, and the honor  whicli they bestowed upon me in elect  ing me to the position of president of  this honoaable society * for the past  year.  When I look up n the faces of these  who came to the Boundary country during the years.of the eighties and early  uineties���many of,them, as I did myself, on the hurricane deck of a cay-  use���and blazed tlie trails, forded the  rivers, hewed out wagon roads over  the mountains and through the forests,  and endured the harkships and privations of pioneer life, living onban-  nocks, bacon ard beans for months at  a time, my heart swells with pride for  these men and I feel'1 it an ho_or to be  numbered among them.  These are t.ie men among whom we  find the pioneer prospectors who discovered our rich mines, which today  have a wcrld-wide reputation. These  are the class of men with whom I have  been associated and  for whom I have  done business during the past fifteen  years, and although in the early days  sf the Boundary country I found it  necessary in .hundreds of instances to  trust these pioneer prospectors for a  recording fee of $2.50 and sometimes  for a fee of $5.0�� for a free miner's  license, to their honor be it said I have  yet to find the first one among them to  defraud me of a five cent piece.7: I ask  you is it not to these men you owe the  many-comforts and luxuries which you  now enjoy, and of which this elaborate repast you so heartily enjoyed this  evening is a sample.  These men _ came here from every  point of the compass, and worked hand  in hand in assisting to build up the  district and Canada���a Canada" of  which we may all justly feel proud; a  Canada which I believe will in the;  near future take a first rank among the  nations of the^world ; a Canada which  justly feels proud of these iron-constituted pioneers, who are as honest and  upright as the day is long; a Canada  which with open arms invites men of  character from all civilized nations of  the world to come in and partake of  her unlimited- resources; a Canada  which-has produced some of the fairest  ladies that have, adorned society, as  well as some of the brightest and most  distinguished men, among whom I may  mention the names of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, A. B. Aylesworth, K. C,  Christopher Robinson, K. C, and there  are are others, not forgetting our own  Duncan Ross, M. P.; a Canada which  within only the last few years, through  the efforts of its pioneers and a free  and progressive government, has be  come a central point of attraction for  all the honest home-seekers of the  world ; a- Canada which,. would time  permit, I would be delighted to tell you  of her educational institutions and advantages, of her- manufacturing in-  dus tries,, of the immense area of her  grain producing- prairies, of her beautiful lakes and rivers, of the magni��  tude of her steamers that plough the  the waters of her mighty deep, of*her  towering mountains and her beautiful  valleys, of her mineral wealth and her  smelters, of the majestic Norway pines  and giant Douglas firs that adorn her  beautiful forests,*of her fisheries, her  dairy products arid her fruit, and, last  but not least of the heroic and noble  deedsof her loyal and gallant sons in  defense of the empire. '  This is the Canada in which I hope  to live and die, .and when I come to  lay my head on the dying pillow, and  lam cailed upon by the Great Architect of the Universe to quit the transitory scenes of this earth, my heart's  desire and prayer to God is that six  pioneers of the Kettle River and South  Okanagan Pioneers' society will lay  my weary bones to rest in- mother  earth, in 'God's Acre," which was  donated to the pioneers by a pioneer,  for the use of the pioneers, and forms  a part of the pioneer cemetery on the  banks of -the Kettle river "of the  Boundary country, in Canada.  J. W. Nelson sang "The German  Emigrant" in excellent style.  "Our Southern Neighbors," was  coupled with the names of, Dr. Dutton  and James Lynch.   .  Dr. Dutton said that although not a  member of the society he was a pioneer  of=the Okanagan,^biiLunfortunatelyjJn,  the wrong side of the river. He-was  pleased to meet so many of the old-  timers, among whom he had many  friends.  Mr. Lynch said he was not a speaker  but would give a song, which was  heartily applauded.  "The Mining Industry" called W.  G. Gaunce to his feet. Mr. Gaunce,  in what was the speech of the evening.,  told of the results to the district and  the mining industry of the world from  the efforts of the pioneers, and paid a  high tribute to tlie energy and perse-  verence, under almost insurmountable  difficulties, of the prospectors of the  West.  Jas. Kerr sang a Scotch song which  was enthusiastically received.  T. J. Hardy was called on to reply to  "Commerce," but .lipped out, as also  did Thos Walsh.  "The Ladies received short speeches  from C. J_. Moe of the Es-stern Townships Bank, and Hugh Cameron of  Camp McKinney.  Dr. Newcombe spoke for the " Ten-  derfeet," and CM. Crouse and J. W.  Grier responded to the "Press."  Mr. Wethell of the Midway company  made a short steech, and a vote of  thanks was tendered Mrs. Dowdingfor,  the excellent banquet.  The balance of the night was spent  in listening to songs, recitations, etc.,  the entertainers being Messrs," James  Kerr, Crouse, Lynch, Powers. Wethel,  McCallum and��Haynes.

The case was not  presented to the'tariff commission.  TARIFF CHANGES.  "Continned from page 1.  1. Explosives���The purchase of dynamite in carloads in this district costs:  40 per cent, 15 cents per pound; 60 per  cent, 16>_ cents per pound; 60 per cent,  18 cents per pound, laid down here.  Freight on explosives amounts to 2  cents per ��� p'ound from Pacific coast  points in Canada, and the duty is 3  cents per pound. Thelastitemamounting to the cost of 5 cents ou every ton  of ore mined in this country. The explosive which costs 15 cents per pound  laid down here, costs 12cents per pound  laid down in the mining' district of  Salt Lake. Utah.  We would suggest that the-dnty on  explosives coming into this country be  removed.  2. Structural Iron���On this there is  a duty of 35 per cent, which is apparently no protection, as on .the last  work of any size done in structural  iron iu this section, an American firm,  making two profits to the contractors  and sub-contractors, waa able to construct the work with the high duty  paid and still undersell the Canadian  manufacturers.  . We would  therefore - suggest the reduction in this item to 20 per cent,  3. Bar Steel���Upon bar steel,such as  is used for drills and smelter bars,  there is a duty of 5 per cent. As suitable steel for this purpose is not manufactured in Canada, we would suggest  the removal of the duty on this commodity,  Q4. Mining Candles���We would' suggest that the duty of,25 per cent on  mining candles be reduced one-half.  Candles suitable for the work are not  manufactured in Canada, as evidenced  by the fact that with a 25 per cent duty  added the candle expense is less than  using those of Canadian manufacture.  5. Rubber Hose���We would suggest  the reduction in lhe duty on rubber  hose from 35**.o 20 per cent for the same  reasons as described above.  6. Iron Pipe���By far the greater-part  of pipe used comes.uuder the dutiable  size of two inches in diameter, and we  have beeu unable to 'procure a suitable  pipe, as it always splits in the weld.  The dut3r is 35 per cent and we would  suggest a reduction of 10 per cent in  this item.  7. Rails���We would ask that the  duty of $7 per ton be removed when  the rails are used for mining and  smelting purposes only.  8 Steel Castings���These are not  manufactured in Canada of a size required in the work. We would therefore request the removal of the duty of  25 per cent on rough and 30 per cent  on finished'steel castings.  .. 9. Machinery���In the free list of machinery for mining and smelting we  would suggest the addition of "blast  furnace s'ag trucks, which are to be  hauled by mechanical power." 3We  would alsosubmit that it is. of no ser-'  vice to admit blast furnace water  jackets free, as it is impracticable to  import water jackets without the parts  to which they must fit. The clause  ���should read "blastfurnaces complete."  The same applies to converter machinery, changing the words converting- to metallurgical process in iron  or copper to. read "Converting machinery for iron or copper."  It is our opinion also that repair  parts for all machinery on the free  list should be admitted free.  ^^lO.^TLunibefc^The^operators.of.. he,  mining and smelting industry of this  section are averse to the placing of  duty on rough lumber coming into the  country.  In conclusion, we would remind you  that we are so far from all bases ot  supplies and our expens-j of transportation so heavy that every consideration which can be given your honorable body to assist in the development  of one of the principal resources of  the  Dominion of Canada   should  be  ARE YOU GOING TO PURCHASE YOUR  TALK THIS QUESTION OVER  CAREFULLY  Determine which store can reasonably do the best  for yo'u.

'    AT PHOENIX. 7  Under the guidance of Mr. Hodges  the guests visited many glory holes,  drifts and tunnels. They were simply  lost in amazement at the magnitude of  the operations being carried on. To  complete the long list of surprises an  electric car was provided and the visitors taken underground through a tunnel for a distance of nearly a mile, the  whole tunnel being in ore.  Late that night the tired but enthusiastic visitore went to Grand  Forks on a special train placed at the  disposal of the commission by Ben  Campbell, the general traffic manager  of the Great Northern.  The party  was met   at  the Yale by  Mayor   Hammer   and  several- of   the  prominent  residents of Grand  Forks  and a brief reception was   held.
