Late of Camp . kKimiev.  ���The good sense and  forbearance of  those in charge of the.V., V* & E. construction west of Midway alone prevented bloodshed on the right of way  of that railway.   The Canadian Pacific  Railway    company    sent    about   150  navvies in charge of Frederic  Wr" McLaine,   the company's  land  agent  in  this district, with  instructions to eject  the V., V. & Ei forces from a section  of land which the C. P. R.   claims under the provisions of an  act passed by  the   provincial    legislature    in    1896,  authorizing a land grant to the Columbia and Western  railway, the charter  for which was acquired by the C. P. R.  some years ago.    McLaine *ettempted  to carry  out his  instructions and ordered his men to tear up a  track  that  runs from a tunnel   on  the  adjoining  property, across  the  alleged  C. P. R.  land,    lie was met by a force of some  700 or 800 V., V. &  E. employees, who  successfully  prevented  the tearing up  of   the   track   without   using   violent  measures.   McLaine was persistent in  forcing the  fighting  against superior  numbers until the V., V. & E. officials,  finding that they could no  longer prevent violent measures, decided to fake  a   more   peaceable course.    Assistant  Chief Engineer Read appeared before  Geo. Arthur Rendell, J. P., and laid an  information    against    McLaine    and  oUiers.   Mr. Rendell issued a warrant  and   Provincial   Constable   Darraugh  went up the grade and arrested  Mc:  Luine   and his   foreman;   McDonald.  They appeared  before Mr. Rendell on  Thursday morning, but in the absence  of Mr. McNe.ll, counsel for the V., V.  & E., an adjournment was ordered until Monday next,   Mr. McDonald was  discharged from custody and, pending  the trial, McLaine was  released without  bail.   He immediately proceeded  to  the  scene  of the disturbance and  again ordered the  men  to tear up the  track.   The effort was again successfully   resisted   without  violence,   but  temper-of-the=\%=V7'&���E.-men-who  had been on duty   for nearly 24 hours,  guarding    the    company's   property,  were sorely tried aud it was fearqd late  last evening that if any further efforts  were  made  to  destroy the company's  propeaty bloodshed might follow.  The events which led up to this disgraceful resort to mob law, began with  the arrival or.Mr. Pearce, the assistant C, P. R. land commissioner. The  Canadian Pacific Railway company  "has been selecting land under the C. &  W. land grant, and certain sections,  which it claims, are along the right of  way of thh-V., V. & E. One of these  sections is further westward than the  scene��of the present trouble. Mr.  Pearce organized a force of men and  ejected P. Gallaher, a sub-contractor,  and his men. The V., V. & E. immediately applied to the courts for a  warrant of possession, which was  granted in Vancouver by Mr. Justice  Morrison on SatuJday last.  The Province report of the court  proceedings follows :  ." The Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern raihv-ay succeeded this morning in  its application for authority to take  possession of the lands on its right of  way near Midway, the right to which  was disputed by the Columbia and  Western, a company subsidary to the  C. P.||R. The land in dispute forms a  portion of the grant given by the government to the Columbia and Western as- an aid in the construction ot its  line. The workmen of the V., V. & E.  entered upon the land for  the purpose  array of ^counsel representing the V.,  V. and E., consisting of -A. H. MacNeill of Rossland, and H. B. McGiverh  its Ottawa legal representative.  "Mr. MacNeill, after formally placing in evidence the documents defin  ing the land required by the V., V. &  E-., said that the possession of this land  was of the utmost importance, as there  was a large force ot men on the  ground ready to proceed with the construction of the line.  " D. G. Marshall desired to have the  application adjourned on the ground  that he had not sufficient time to look  into the matter.  " Mr. MacNeill vigorously opposed  any further delay, the application having already been adjourned once before. He was anxious that the order  should be made at once, in order that  the deposit of $1,810.50 required by the  Railway Act for the expropriation  might be deposited before the closing  of banking hours at noon today.  " His Lordship concluded that he  would allow the application to proceed  and asked Mr. Marshall to state his  objections to the order being made,  and added that he had little sympathy  for any intention to delay or evade the  determination of matters coming up  before him.  "Mr. Marshall said that he could  not oppose the application, as he had  no material before him.  " 'Do you object ?' asked nis lordship.  " 'No,' replied Mr, Marshall.  " 'Do you consent ?'  " 'Oh, no,' said Mr. Marshall.  " 'Well, you can have your order,'  decided  Mr. Justice'Morrison, speaking   to   Mr.   MacNeill.     The    latter  gathered up   his   papers hastily  and  made a rush for the bank to pay..the  $1810.50 required forthe expropriation."  It will be seen from  the above that  the C. P. R. solicitors offered no argument against the issuance of the warrant  and  consequently there was,, no  necessity for the V., V.  &  E.  stating  the grounds upon  which the:' application -was made, but it is  understood  that.had snch a step  been  necessary  the point ould whave been raised that  the land did not and could not legally  belong to to the C.   P.  R., since  the  provisions of the act authorizing the  land grant were not complied with.  The same tactics are now being pursued by the C. P. R. in connection with  the piece of land which is the scene of  the present difficulty, but instead of  peacaabl3- withdrawing the V., V. & E.  has decided to stand by its rights and  force an issue. '  "Those whom the gods would destroy they first make mad." So bitter  are C. P. R. officials against the V.,  V. & E., because it  is  building a rival  roadanto.Southern^Bntish^Columbia,   that they rush headlong intooa fight  that is almost sure to result in exposing the fact that crown grants under  which it holds the lands are defective  and consequently the C. P. R men are  themselves the trespassers. More is  likely to be heard concerning* l.his particular laud granl, now claimed by the  Canadian Pacific Railway company  In the meantime it  is surely pertinent to  ask  if  the C. P. R. is  going to  be allowed to bring  British  law  into  disrepute  and  hire  irresponsible men  to incite equally  irresponsible men to  acts of violence. Is a railway company  granted full authority by the Dominion  parliament   to   construct    a    railway  through Southern British  Columbia to  be attacked by a  mon hired by the C.  P. R.?   Had the V., V. and E. officials  adopted the same tactics as  those pursued by the C.  P.   R. ihcre would be  several    dead    men   in   Myers   creek  canyon today.   It is a new and striking method of enforcing a company's  rights to hire a   number   of railway  navvies to use force against a  rival  company.   It   is   an  innovation   that  should not be tolerated in this province  even if the instigator is  the all powerful Canadian Pacific railway company.  In a long article in The News Mr.  Watson Griffin assumes that protection  by tariff is beneficial to Canada, that  the higher the tariff the greater the  benefits, and that the farmer cati be  protected by a tariff. From"thesi'assumptions .it he ��argues that as the  lie' made higher the pros-  tariff   can   _.        --���---   ---   r---  of pushing its  construction   work, but i perityof the Dbminian can be increased  \v.;re ejected   by   the employes'of the j by   the   government.    If   Mr.   Griffin  Columbia and Western.  -���When the application came on for  hearing this morning before Mr. Justice Morrison, there was an   imposing  should undertake  to prove his assump  tions he would probably discover that  they were wrong, or,  at  least,   would  induce some critics to furnish him with  proofs to that effect.���Toronto Globe.

' The black or brownish shale, which  occurs above the ' blue rock phosphate  in Tennessee,' is' highly, bituminous  and oily. Some tests recently made  indicate that this shale can yield a  good quality of gas. Considering that,  in the mining of the blue rock, this  shale constitutes the mine waste and  is a by-product, it may become a valuable source of power for local mining  and millidg.  Separating minerals by using oil recalls one of the original grease processes which was discovered at the  Kimberly diamond mines by a boy.  who, while eating his lunch at work,  accidentally dropped a piece of bread  "butter side clown," on the traveling  belt ou which Ihe diamond-hearing-,  clay passed. He found that where the  grease was there also were the diamonds.  The bucking and snorting and refusal to start of the gas engine may be  due to moisture in the cylinder, which  often prevents regular iguitiod till  dried by the heat ol several explosions. By shutting off the water  jacket a few minutes before stopping  the engine, and not turning it on  again till after the engine begins to  explode regularly when again .-started,  the difficulty may be obviated.  A 1-inch single belt, traveling 600  feet per minute, will transmit one  horsepower. To find lhe horsepower  a belt will transmit, multiply the circumference of the pulley in feet by  speed of revolution, and that product  by width of tne belt in inches, and divide by 600. The result will be the  horsepower the belt will transmit. If  double belt is used it will transput one  and two-third times as much as sinSle.  Before buying Lots see me  J:or prices  C. P. R.

The Granb3r company concedes an  eight-hour day to employes and recognizes the organization of smelter eni-  . ployes. The greatest cut in wages has  -���been ten per cent, on some of the employees, while the greater portion of  them will retain the same wages for  eight hours that they were previously  getting for ten and twelve hours a  day.  The company and the men are to be  congratulated on the amicable settlement and the* good feeling that  prevails will be of lasting benefit to all  concerned.-  . The brickett men will retain the same  ���wages for eight hours as previously for  ten hours ; as also will the 12-hour men  working below on the blast furnaces,  and the sample mill men the same  wages as thev were getting for 11  hours' work. 1  The eight-hour day is general except  to carpenters and machinists, who will  have eight hours with the same pay  when working around the furnaces or  in gaseous or dusty places.  LEGAL BLUNDERS.  According to a dispatch from London, says the Vancouver World, the  the privy council has permitted the  appellant in the Nelson and Fort Sheppard railway case to withdraw the appeal. Thus finis is written to another  chapter of the story of futility and ineptitude which is being recorded in lhe  annals of .the attorney-general's department. Last year the province had  three appeals to the privy council in  hand. Two of these have gone by the  board owing to sheer mismanagement,  the Nelson and Fort Sliepparu railway  appeal, because of the government's  neglect of elementary legal precautions, and the other, that in connection with the employment of Chinese  underground, because, having a choice  of two methods of founding its case,  the department presided over by the  Hon. Charles Wilson wasdriveu by the  fatal necessity which seems ever to  pursue it to choose the wrong one.  There remains the appeal, in the  Vancouver street ends case, a question  of the utmost iinportauce to this city,  but froni participation in the presentation of which it has been deliberately  excluded by the attorney-general. With  indifference to previous failure, Mr.  Wilson is now again on his way to  England. There is, in point of fact,  little need for these expensive trips of  ministers. The province maintains a  most expensive agent in London, a  man thoroughly familiar with every  phase of the interests of British Columbia, and he should be able to transact almost all the business of the  province. There would, indeed, be  much more wisdom in recalling Mr.  Turner from time to time that he might  consult the minister of the crown and  the principal officials aud'so keep himself thoroughly in touch with every  fresh development in provincial affairs. It is, however, a sort of unwritten   law   that each  minister shall  =--havea---rusi-to^the^old-countr-y=d tiring,  the life of the government. Fortunately for the treasury, some administrations are kept so busy hanging on  to office that their members never get  time for a jaunt. It is, of course, always possible to find some colorable  pretext for the trip, and when Mr.  Wilson went to Lendon last year it  was announced that he was sacrificing  his valuable time because the orovince  had three appeals under way. This  reason, compared with reasons given  on similar occasions, was almost  deemed legitimate until it wis found  that all that Mr. Wilson had really accomplished was a formal application  for leave to appeal one of the cases, a  mere preliminary step which any suitable counsel in London might have  undertaken on instructions trausmittcd  by mail.  And now Mr. Wilson is off to Loudon once more This, ns already noted,  is his second trip. It is to be hoped  that it is not to be established as a  precedent and that his colleagues will  ��� riot insist in their turns upon having  two trips apiece.

A modest little announcement in last  week's issue of the Gazette is the re-  . suit of months of protest by honest  Conservatives in the Boundary district and political ��� intrigue by another  brand of Conservatives. The announcement is to the effect that John  R, Jackson of Midway is to be a license  commissioner for the Boundary creek  licence district in place of Arthur H.  Lawder, resigned. This concession  was all that George Fraser would give,  and as George Fraser is a voting factor.*' the McBride government had to  yield.    If   a   little   leaven   sometimes  ^leavens^the^whole^lumbr^thefe^is^a"  strong ray of hope that John R. Jackson will succeed in keeping the board  of license commissioners within reasonably, decent bounds. At least we  feel sure that there can be no further  gross disregard for law or public  opinion without the strongest possible  protest from him.  Since the above wa'sjwritten we learn  that Mr. Jackson has refused to become identified with the Boundary  licensing board as at present constituted. The public generally will regret his decision, but will at the same  time fully appreciate the fact that a  gentleman of Mr. Jackson's standing  could scarcely take any other course.  WHO PAYS THE TAX ?  " Industrial Canada" is a very, substantial monthly published under the  auspices of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association. It is for protection  first, last and all the time���protection  of the manufacturers. Ordinary mortals it does not worry about: They can  pay all manner of taxes and be subject to all sorts of competition, but the  Canadian manufacturers, never !  Occasionally, in its-eagerness to defend the Canadian manufacturers, Industrial Canada has its moments of  weakness and [gives hard digs to the  protection theory.  In a recent issue it denounces the  commercial travelers' tax in British  Columbia and Prince Edward Island  and moralizes as follows:  " Perhaps the people of British Columbia and Prince Edward Island will  be more willing to accept this solution  ofgthef difficulty when they will have  realized more, fully than they do at  present that it is themselves as individual consumers who are in reality  paying the tax. Its immediate result  is to restrict competition. Many a firm  has already withdrawn its travelers  from these provinces purely on account  of the tax. The few who remain have  a clearer field to work in. There is  not the same eager rush to secure  business, ana consequently there is  shading of prices. The retailer is unable to drive as good a bargain as before, so he just adds a l'ttle more to  his selling price, and ultimately it is  the poor consumer who pays the piper."  If customs duties for the protection  of--Canadian ^manufacturers^-were'sub-  stituted for tax on commercial travelers, the [argument would be equally  pertinent.  to all in the spirit of fair play, so dear  to men of the Anglo-Saxon race under  different flags."  THE SIMITLKAMEEN.  EXIT.  The Nelson Tribune finds decent  sepulture in the journalistic boneyard  this week. Its life was prolonged by  reason of the fact that it was John  Houston's paper, and John had the  knack of rallying people to his financial support, without regard to their  political predilections. Now that  Houston has gone the inevitable result  follows. There is no room in Nelson  for two daily newspapers. The News  is a credit to the city and of material  advantage in promoting its best interests. It is hoped that in the interests of Nelson its business men will  discourage the publication of any new  daily until the city has grown to at  least double its present population.  siffl^m^  ONE OF THE STALWARTS.  The Kelowna Clarion, under the  guidance of George C. Rose, will become a factor in the political life of  Okanagan district. Mr. Rose, in announcing a policy for the paper, tells  where the paper stands in the following words :  "One word more. It has been feared  that the apple of discoro. would be  thrown into this community by the  introduction of party politics into the  policy of the paper. Let it be understood that the policy of the Clarion,  under the new proprietor, will be to  give an indepeudent support to the  Liberal party, reserving the right to  denounce measures and men iniquitous  to the best interests of the whole  country. Neither race feeling, religious intolerance, or rabid partisanship 'will be permitted to disfigure  these columns, and absolute fairness  will be shown in reports of political  conventions and meetings, whether  Conservative, Liberal or Socialist.  "No man can make a success of an  undertaking which clashes with his  own innermost convictions, and it is  not proposed that the Clarion shall  continue ��� to be an emasculated and  colorless factor in the political situation, but strict justice will be rendered  Arthur Hickling-, of the Vermillion  Forks Mining and Development company, and of the Princeton Townsite  company, who has been in the city for  a few days, left last night for his annual trip to England, where he will  remain until next spring. In speaking  about the railway construction toward  the Similkameen section, Mr. Hick  ling said that the railway transportation which the Similkameen has so  long needed for its proper development  is at last in sight. The Great Northern is pushing construction as rapidly  as it can west of Midway, but finds  considerable difficulty in getting a suf-  ficent number of men, It has about  1.000 men at work and would employ  5,000 if they could be secured, but men  for railway construction are scarce and  hard to get. The Canadian Pacific,  too, has begun the work of grading  west of Midway with a gang of men.  under W. P. Tierney. There ia no  doubt, Mr. Hickling says, about the  Great Northern pushing on to Princeton. They now have moved their  camps to this side of the line, and if  the weather is not too "stormy during  the winter, will teach Princeton by the  spring.  The conditions in and about Princeton have been very good during the  past summer and fall, but next spring  the people toere expect a tremendous  boom. There is a splendid field for  prospectors up the Similkameen river,  where there are large areas that have  never been looked over by prospectors.  A.t Hedley the Nickel Plate mill is to  be increased in size from forty to one  hundred stamps, as the mine has large  reserves of ore, sufficient to keep one  'huTOr^l3famps~irnioMt_n^  This mine is regarded by a large number of people as the largest ^and best  in the province. With one hundred  stamps pounding away on its ore the  production of bullion should be very  large. It is the intention of the Daly  estate, which controls the Nickel Plate,  to erect a smelter at a latter time.eThis  combine is now purchasing and de  veloping copper properties so as to  keep the smelter in ore.  The Vermillion Forks Mining and  Development company, which owns  coal property at Princeton, intends to  soon begin their development so as to  begin a position to market coal as soon  as the railway reaches Princetoh.���  Rossland Miner.

THE RICH   NORTH  The Best Part of the Province to be Opened up.  MORE RAILWAYS NEEDED  Problem of Giving Northern British  Columbia Ade.uate Railway  Facilities.  If, as has been stated, the future of  British Columbia is bound up in the  transportation question, that future  never looked better than it does at the  present time. In no year..since the beginning of construction of the Canadian Pacific railway has there been  such marked activity in railway building as in the year of grace, 1905. Then,  too, it is not the mere extension of  railways reaching out for new territory, but is rather the carrying out of  well considered plans to provide adequate railway facilities for all sections  of the province. Midway is the starling point of the greater portion of the  railway lines. From here the Great  Northern is rushing* the V., V. & E.  system to the coast. This line will  provide the long desired Coast-Koote-  nay connection. The work from Midway to the internutional boundary line  at Molson, a distance of 30 miles, and  from Molson to the boundary line at  the Similkameen river, a distance of  46 miles, is well under way, and work  will be started by J. W. Stewart from  the boundary line to Keremeos in a  few days, Construction will' be "commenced from Clo.verdale eastward Ihis  fall and it is fully expected that within  two years the entire line to the coast  will be completed. By next June  trains will be running to the Similkameen, at leastas far as Keremeos.'  Tho marked activity on the part of  the Great Northern, spurred the C. P.  R. to action.

All work guaranteed   GREENWOOD  ilkameen trade the C. P. R. has been  rushing construction of a line from  Spence's Bridge, whose objective point  is Midway, where connection will be  made with the Columbia and Western.  The line will be compleied and track  laid as far as Nicola, a distance of 45  miles, this year, and next year the  work will be continued to the Similkameen. It is true that the C. P. R. had  begun building westward from Midway, but those who are best .informed  on railway matters believe that this is  done not with the objector prosecuting-  bona fide continuous construction, but  rather to have prior claims at a level  crossing* which must be made with the  Midway and Vernon about one mile  west of Midway.  The Midway and Vernon 'is being-  built as an independent line from Midway to Vernon, and about ten miles of  grading has been completed. The  promoters of this line are considering  the question of extension of the line  westward.  All these lines  are sure  to become  important factors in   the development  of the resources of the province, but  there   are   other   lines   contemplated  which will do even more in opening up  rich and promising sections which are  today without railway facilities.   The  construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific in  the near future opensnup the  rich   northern  half   of   the province.  Southeren connections are sure to follow, and  already  the  construction of  iailways running  north  and south in  the province is being   seriously   discussed.   One of  these is the Vancouver, Westminster and Yukon, which is  controlled by John Hendry of Vancouver and his associates.   The proposed  routs of this line is from North Vancouver to Howe sound  and through a  low pass to Liilooet, where the Fraser  river   is   reached.   The   Fraser river  valley   is   followed to  Quesnelle and  thence northerly   to Fort   George or  some other point where connection will  be made with the Grand Trunk Pacific.  Another   project and one which  if  carried out will do more to open up the  interior of the province than any other  railway built or projected, is a railway  running   through   the   valley   of   the  North"  Thompson,   the Horsefly   and  Cariboo country  and northerly to the  Youkon    territory.     A   charter   was  secured for a railway over this route by  Kamloops  parties a year ago.    Should  either or both of these roads be built,  then it would be impossible to estimate  the   growth   of   the province.     Until  now the territory south of the C. P. R.  in B. C. has been retarded  by  lack of  transportation     facilities,     and     the  country north has remained practically  a terra incognita.   Those who  have a  limited knowledge of its resources are  strong in  the' belief that the richest  and best part of the  province is in the  north and that this will be fully demonstrated as soon as the iron  horse finds  his   way  into   its fertile valleys  and  along its gold-bearing rivers.  |s ^���4��**&-fr*-fr***fr*fr--�����-&����� 4^ #  ��*  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  THE�����  LE0TR1G CO.

Out of the entire list they found only  one that thny declared was entirely  free from all poisons. This exception  was Chamberlain's .Cough Remedy,  made by the Chamberlain Medicine  Company, Des Moines, Iowa.U. S. A.

Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy is especially reeommended by  its makers for coughs, colds, croup  and whooping cough. When taken in  time it prevents pneumonia. This  remedy is for sale by all druggists.  HUMOR OF THE HOUR.  A perfect pun makes good sense both  ways; the edges meet with a click like  the blades of a sharp pair of shea's.  Sometimes the very thoughts fit tight  together in antagonistic identity, as  when the man said of the temperance  exhorter that he would be a good fellow if he only let drink alone; or when  Disraeli, if it was he, wrote to the  youth who had sent him a first novel:  "I thank you very much. I shall lose  no time in reading it;" or as when a  man on seeing a poor piece or carpentry work, said, "That chicken coop  looks as if some man had made it himself." Exquisite perverse literalness  of thought ! And the same absolute  punning, the very self-destruction of a  proposition, was the old death thrust  at a poor poet by the friend who said,  " His poetri will be read when Shakespeare and Homer are forgotten." It  was a fine double-edged blade of speech  until some crude fellow, Heine, I think,  sharpened it to a wire edge by adding,  -'and no* till then," a banality that  dulled its perfection forever.���Atlantic  In  the  art  of  meat  cutting  is  what all butchers  should possess to ensure their customers of getting  just what they ask for.

They are as follows: Heavy  iron pyrite, or pyrite and copper, containing no silica, but which may contain gold and silver; carbonates and  silicates of copper, free from sulphides.  These comprise the entire list which  are incapable of concentration.-; All  other ores' may be worked either by'  straight concentration or by combinations of that and wet extraction. Lead  in any form is extremely easy to concentrate out from any .other combination of ores and-gangues, arid'as-a rule  f iilly.90 per cent, .may be saved, often  more. Copper in the form of black  copper or copper glance; or almost any  .form of the. higher oxides, .is  easy to  ��� save On the other hand, copper sulphides, especially as chalcopyrite, are  difficult to save, owing- to sliming.   All  - iron'ores^ cxcept-the^r. ixed-oxides= and=  carbonates, are very easily saved!  zinc ores; except in heavy combination  with iron or. copper, are. easily conceu-  ' centrated Gold is' extremely easy to  save, and it is not unusual to gain 95  per ceiit. of Its value in the raw'ore.  Silver varies, and while often the sav-  iug will be small in the concentrates it  is bedause it exists in the form of  chloride or some other light colnpound  in the ore, and this invariably works  to perfection by .leeching from the  tails.    The most difficult of all ores to  handle by concentration are those  combinations of lead, zinc, iron, copper, in form of sulphides,, and perhaps  enclosed in a gangue of quartz, lime  spar, baryta and garnet. Tn such a  case the iron, zinc, copper, garnet and  baryta are very nearly the same  gravity. Expert mrnipulation,, however, will accomplish wonders on such  ores. For instance, the lead can be  fairly well separated, and possibly a  portion pf the iron. Finer crushing  will separate some portion of the zinc  and copper; the balance of the material will be treated, either raw or  after roasting, by magnets, and a further separation made. The merchantable products from this would be:  first, the lead, with some iron and  most of the silver; second, a copper  concentrate' with considerable zinc and  iron; third, a zinc conce-itrate fairly  clean.  Mr. Frederic Keffer of the B. Chopper company, is in town this week,  having come over from the Apex  group, which he has had utieer bond  from W. D. McMillan. Mr. Kefer's is  tha name to conjure by in lode mining  in the Boundary, having taken hold of  the Mother Lode mine in Deadwood  camp, when it was a new prospect and  steered its destinies through the initial  stages of development until it is today  one of the properties Which British  Columbians speak of with pride. But  it was Colonel Weir of  New York who  discovered the Mother Lode to capital,  and saw in it, while wholly undeveloped, the making of a great mine.  Not only did Colonel Weir discover in  the Mother Lode a rare investment fnr  himself and his associates, but he  found in Mr Keffer the man to put in  charge, and the sequel shows that he  was as wise in his selection of the man  as he was of the property. Through  ill and good report and in spite of difficulties almost appalling Mr. Keffer  never swerved from the goal in view.  The confidence reposed in him by the  B. C. Copper company is shown by the  fact that they have recently extended  his sphere of .usefulness to them, by  giving him a roving commission, with  headquarters in* New York, to look  after development of their properties  in various parts of the United States  and Canada, and to enable to do so  have relieved him of the active management of the Greenwood concern.���  Hedley Gazette.

Bob Gardiner has conveniently  become "ossified" 4u the parts  upon which the hangman usually  operates, consequently his neck  can neither be<brokennor squeezed  by a rope.
