It has never failed to relieve  in any case where I have recomfhended  it, and grateful niothers, after using  it, are daily thanking me for advising  _> J them.'*   This remedy is for sale b3* al  "'.' druggists.*  ALONG THE KTTLE RIVER  The Railroad Situation and the Benefit the Hill Road  Will Be to the Mine Owners and Ranchers  West of the Boundary Country  A reporter of The Times returned on  Tuesday afternoon last from a trip to  the Kettle River country, undertaken  with a view to gather' information for  the special edition of the paper, the  preparations for which are now well  under way. While in the district referred to our representative heard the  opinionsof very many of the residents  concerning the fight at present waging in the Dominion house betwee"n J.  J. HiL, championed by Duncan Ross,  M. P., and the C. P. R. James J. Hill  wishes to build a railway from Midway to the B. C. coast. Some well-  informed people say that the proposed  Une' will start from the Emma mine  at Eholt and come through Greenwood.  As Mr. Hill does not choose to make  his plans public at this stage of the  game, we are unfortunately not in a  position to either corroborate or deny  the runior, all we can do is to hope  with the rest of the people of" Greenwood, that such is the case, and sing  with the words of the old pantomime  song: ' -    *        -  "Oh, let it be soon."  The C. P. R., so we gather from the  actions of their pel newspapers and  hirelings, object to* Mr. Hill's scheme  on account of the fact that the proposed road- taps a section of country  which they have systematically neglected since their advent into, this  province, and which in spite of this  they have the impudence to claim-as  theirs and theirs only, and that Hill is  actually willing to build the road without a bonus. - Who ever heard of such  a thing ? Is. it any wonder' that the  C. P! R. is in arms? The idea of  building a railway in British Columbia without a bonus! Really when we  look into the matter we are filled with  indignation, and pause to wonder why  such papers as the Victoria Times and  Vancouver World can be .found supporting such a preposterous hold-up  as James J. Hill proposes to' perpetrate  on the unsuspecting taxpayers of this  glorious province.  We are told that Mr, Hill will never  build to a British Columbia terminus  at the coast. We wonder why he ever  went to such trouble and expense in  fighting injunction after injunction at  Vancouver, and all the opposition possible to his~getting an~agreement -to  use the New Westminster bridge. The  C. P. R. is well named the octopus. If  it was called the decapod or centipede  it would be much nearer the truth.  We read with much.-, pleasure some  two weeks ago a splendid apology for  the C. P. R. from' the facile pen of P.  A. O'Farrell, in the Nelson Daily  News. In it we are told of the wonderful things the C. P. R. had done for  the Boundary country. In spite of  this, however, we are reluctantly  forced to the conclusion that instead  of a benefit the great Canadian company, of which everybody should feel  proud, and yet so many feel heartily  ashamed, is a terrible detriment. Their  supporters almost control our legislatures, they successfully balk financial  support to sucli a road as the proposed  Midway and Vernon, for the lack of  which the West Fork country is in a  deplorable state.; They charge S3.02  per cwl. from Montreal to Greenwood,  and $2.49 from Victoria to Greenwood.  The odd 53 cents is for the extra 2,000  miles of hauling. We could go on  but we wish not to give our own opinions", but those'of the Kettle river people. There is one gentleman in the  Rock Creek district whose conversation simply reeks of railway news.  Our correspondent tried hard to occasionally change the subject to that  for instance of the advisability of advertising his unsurpassed liquids in  the special number. It was no ���jo. He  had no heart or ears for other than the  ospect of Jim Hill's bill passing the  house this session. In our own mind  we could scarcely blame him. He with  many others has held out year after  year, hoping agaiast hope. He has  seen the country  stagnate for lack of  transportation facilities, has seen good  mining propositions go begging, has  seen men leave the country after holding on to their claims until it was  either a case of get out or starve. Is  it any wonder these people want to  see the V., V. & E. bill pass the house?  Here is a country rich in mineral  resources,, easily irrigated, plenty of  splendid agricultural land, and what is  it today ? We wish the respective  editors of the Nelson Tribune and the  Vancouver Province would take'a trip  through and get wise, we venture to  think that they would alter their tune  if they could be induced to write what  they saw instead of what they were  paid to write.  We would like to state that it is our  opinion that things will improve this  year. Unfortunately our inate love of  truth even precludes this source of  sympathy. The only thing that will  save that country is a railway, and for  the sake of the men who have spent  their lives- in discovering the vast  mineral deposits,' it cannot come too  soon. We believe no right-thinking  man in this community opposes the  Ross bill. We most earnestly hope  not Some of its opponents make the  most ridiculous statements concerning  Mr. Hill's intentions. They claim'  that he does not intend connecting the  V., V. & -E. to the British Columbia  coast cities, Vancouver and New Westminster; that-his idea isto.ta_e the.-  ores o'�� this'county/to the'ri��Je*h tiering i  state for treatment; that his "only '  fixed obje.t is to build up American  towns to the detriment of our own;  that he merely wants the Similkameen and adjacent country is a feeder  to his main line, his detractors are going the right way to make it that and  that only. J. J. Hill will build into the  Similkameen anyway. He has already started for that matter. Ii the  present bill is defeated it simply means  that he will not build to the coast, but  take all the trade of the more western  Boundary country to Spokane via Republic. It means that the Chesaw ores  instead of being treated at a point on  this side of the international boundary line, as there is every reason to  suppose probable if the bill passes.will  be smelted on the American side. We  believe-that-J. J.-Hill will.build west_.  from Midway, and nothing shoit of a  miracle will make us think otherwise.  That we are not alone in that view, is  apparent from the fact that hard-  headed business men, as those con*  troling the Eholt Trading Co. are acknowledged to be, are opening a general store at Midway; that P. Burns &  Co., some of the principal shareholders  in which concern are C. P. R. officials,  are doing likewise; that the B. C. Copper company have for many month-  had an option on aismelter site there;  that the same company has taken a  working bond on the Sunset group of  mines on Copper mountain in the Similkameen; that the same company  makes no secret of the fact that they  are intensely interested in lhe doings  of Chesaw camp; that the" Granby Co.  has taken a working bond on the Dividend group near Osoyoos, and last, but  not least, that the Great Northern contractors at Oroville are daily expecting  orders to start for Midway or Eholt.  We do not know that the road will  be started this year, we hope it will,  but we are now faced with the fact  that the C. P. R. having failed in the  commons will put in big licks to get  the senate to throw it out. With such  men as Senator Templeman to back  the bill, and with a Liberal majority  in the Senate, the chances are in favor  of the bill passing.  The enemies of the Great Northern  are very ready to tell their readers and  hearers what the Hill lines have done  to hurt B. C. They are exceedingly  careful, however, not to b.-ll the good  his lines have done for the people, of  decreased passenger and freight rates,  of quicker connections, of better mail  (Concluded on Page 5.)

FRIDAY JUNE 23, WOS.-
The Colville brass band wants
to discourse sweet music at Grand
Forks July 1st. Fortunately for
the Colville brass band Grand
Forks has gone out of the summer carnival business.
The Nelson Daily News is authority for the statement "that
the New York end of the Montreal & Boston finances has been
satisfactorily arranged and a resumption of operations may be
looked for within the next thirty
days."   It is to be hoped so.
Late dispatches from Ottawa
contain the pleasing information
that the V., V. & E. bill will be
fought on party lines. As the
Liberals have a majority in the
railway committee, the house and
the senate, there can now be no
danger of jtbe measure being defeated. .
If it takes freight 38 days to
come from Montreal to Greenwood, a distance of nearly 3,000
miles, or an average speed of 4
miles an hour, it may safely be
assumed that there will be few
The Greenwood -Times has
been enlarged. It seems to be a
good thing for a newspaper to
have its editor a member of parliament.—Cranbrook Herald.
Possibly, possibly, friend Simpson.    Just try being a member
of   parliament    and   running   a
newspaper.    It is a double action
boomerang.   The people at home
cannot  get rid  of the idea that
the member" is making barrels of
money,   and  therefore  the paper
does not need prompt settlement
of accounts.    And-then the member, while away  attending to his
legislative  duties, is never quite
sure  what   sort   of   a mine the
printers will spring.    This week
it may be enthusiastically  Grit,
next   as   enthusiastically. Tory,
next the cash ,may not come iu as
promptly    as   desired,   and   the
Socialist  scheme  may- appeal to
their higher intelligence, and the
next   week  the collections   may
reach   the   vanishing point, and
the scarlet banner of anarchism
float over' /the print shop of the
man   who  is devoting  his best
energies to giving  a daily mail
service to the  three residents of
Deadman's Gulch, or a customs
office at Tie Siding.    Then there
is the local advisory committee,
who are the self-appointed*guard-
ian angels of the printing office.
It is their  duty to  see that the
editorial utterances of the paper
are  politically ^orthodox.     The
member is three thousand miles
away and "too busy to take much
interest in the paper. The printers
are too  busy getting the paper
out and making both ends meet
to j pay - much  attention   to   the
member'.—The—receipts- -.are -too
small to pay   an   editor,  so the
news, editorials, etc.,  are set up
or clipped by whichever  of, the
printers has an idea, or the shears,
and the time to put it in type.'
Yes, it is  a   "good thing for a
newspaper . to   have its editor a
member of parliament," so also is
it a good thing  to be sailing in
a rudderless ship in an unknown
sea. 	
One of the peculiar arguments
used against the Hill rdad is that
the ore will be hauled from the
Similkameen to the EJverett
smelter for Tabput $1.20 a ton.
This, in the event of a local
smelter not being-built, would be
an excellent thing "for the Similkameen. But the qustion of
transportation to Everett of the
Similkameeu ores is one for discussion years hence. The Great
Northern is now building" from
the Boundary, where there are
smelters, to the Similkameen.
The distance is 140 miles from
the Greenwood smelter to the
Sunset group of mines on Copper
mountain. Mines and smelter
are operated by the B. C. Copper
company. The C. P. R. is building from Spence's Bridge on the
main line into the Similkameen.
From Copper mountain to the
Greenwood smelter over the C.
P. R. would be over 1,000 miles,
or to any other smelter point over
the C. P. R.,   not less ,than 500
miles.    The Great Northern' is
building in a direct lineirom the
Boundary smelters to  the mines
of the  Similkameen.    The C. P.
R. is constructing its road in the
opposite direction.    Between the
smelters and the mines the Great
northern will have  a distance to
haul ores about, one seventh that
of the Canadian Pacific.    Which
can  give the best rates to mine
owners,   the   short   or the long
haulage ?    It is only necessary to
point to the Sloean ■ to show the
results  from C. P. R.'monopoly.,
There nearly all the mines have
been closed down  as  a result of
excessive freight rates.    A little
over a year ago  a carload of "ore
was   shipped from   the   Handy
group,   on    the ' Lardo-Gerrard
branch, over the C. P. R. to Nelson, a distance of about a hundred
miles.    The freight charges were
$15 per ton—a prohibitive rate.
The same may be   said of the
whole L,ardeau and Poplar country. , Medium grade  ores cannot
be shipped over the C. P. R. from
districts in which that company
has a monopoly.    The average of
the Similkameen ore is low grade
and will not stand high freight
and ^.treatment   charges.     The
ore cannot be hauled to and treated
iu the  Trail  smelter at a profit.
So it is either  a short haulage
or shut down.  . Over its proposed
route from the Similkameen the
C. P. R.  cannot  give   the  short
haulage neccessar'y.    The" Great
Northern can.    The Great Northern route means development of
the medium and low grade mines
of the Similkameen.    The C. P.
R-.* means stagnation for the min-
ing'iudustry of that section. The
one means "hundreds  .of miners
working   and  a  market for  the
produce of the ranches of the district; the other  means a "walk"
for  the low-grade  mine   owners
and the small farmers.    The one
prosperity; the other bankruptcy.

SIWASHES FROM ALL OVER,  Through various Indian ,'airents and  missionaries, representative of nearly  all*the British Columbia tribes, the  fact that the Dominion i^'air is to be  held in New "Westminster this year,  has become widely advertised among  the Indians of the province and the  presence of thousands of them on the  banks of the Fraser during'the great  national exhibition is already assured.

FROM THE WASTE DUMP  coal  i.  which must" not be too refiactory or  fusible. Thus if an ore abbund in  clay or sulphur, lime or limestone, and  posbibly sand must be added; otherwise the quartz is slagged by combining with part of the iron, which is thub  lost. At times ores are so selected that  the earthy matter present may flux  each other, but this requires skill and  experience In pottery there are numerous fluxes, but most all consist of  litharge, or red lead, with sand or  boracic acid. ,  At a ccst of $2,500,000, and after -five  years'' work, 170 acres of the richest  iron deposits in England have been  reclaimed from the sea on the Cumberland coast, by means of a semi-circular  sea barrier, almost 7,000 feet long, 210  feet wide at, the base, 83 feet on top  and 40 feet high. 'An old sea wall,  constructed in 1890, 600 yards faither  inland, made 5.000.000 tons of ore  available,, but eight years later a bed  of quicksand established connections  between1 the underground workings  and the sea, and the occurrence indicated the importance of a larger; area  being inclosed if the work in the mines  was lo be carried on with safety. The  first outer bank of the new wall is of  rubble limestone, protected on the  seaward side by 125-ton concrete blocks  distributed irregularly, so as to break  the force of the waves, and carried ten  feet above the high water of the ordinary spring tides. The inner bank is  also of limestone, of less dimensions,  while the center is of clay filling with  a puddle core, into which is housed the  top of the piling under the bank, forming a submarine, cutoff from further  trouble from quicksand.

O Coal has never been, ,found possessing crystalline structure.. ,  The,iinest known specimens of crystallized galena come from out thelead  and zinc mines of Missouri and Kansas. |  The term fold in geology is used to  denote an-inclined position into.which  various disturbances may have moved  rocks previously horizontal.��� 'Even  very brittle rock may be thus folded,  rather than broken, under a severe,  steady pressure.  The less water, ash aud sulphur in  the better the coaL The water  must be evaporated before the coal  burns, the ash represents inert matter  and sulphur represents one of the most  objeotioual additions to any coal. A  first-class coal should not contain over  seven per cent of ash, and a good gas  coal ought to carry less than seven per  cent sulphur.  The wastage of heat energy under  the present methods is appalling.  About 65 per cent of the heat energy  of coal can be put into the steam boiler  and from this only 15 per cent of me-  mechanical power is obtained. Thus  about nine-tenths of the original heat  in coal is wasted. "Proceeding farther  and putting mechanical power into  electricity, only from 2 to 5 per cent is  turned into light; or, iu other words,  from coal to light ,we get en an average only about one-half of one per  cent of the original energy, a wastage  of 99% of every 100 pounds of coal  used. The very best possible with the  largest and best machinery is a little  more than one pound for ever}- hundred consumed.  A flux is a substance or mixture  added to assist in the fusion of minerals. The most used flux materials  are limestone and fluorspar. Much  attention is given to fluxes iu iron  smelting, because on their character  depends to a considerable extent the  complete separation of the metal. To  accomplish this the flux must be such  that it will combine with the earthy  matter of   the ore, and form  a slag  Lead and'zinc are ther most important of the base metal's.

The   depression   in   the ' Bilvcr-lcad  mining industry in the Sloean  district  in British  Columbia  is  arousing   the  ire of the leading spirits of  that community, if the tone of the local technical press is *.o be taken as  an  indication.    The Sloean district is primarily  the silver-lead district of British Columbia, and  within  its boundaries ,is  mined most of the output of silver-lead  ores and also the dry silver ores. \ In  the face of these facts it is rather remarkable   that,, the   leading   industry  ! should suffer; but an inquiry   into  the'  s reasons seems to  place the trouble in  ��� what  the Sandon Mining Standard is  pleased to term the "lea'd-pipe cinch"  . of a railway corporation.  In 1892, which was the first year of  - activity in this district, Mineral Indus-"  try reviewed the condition then -existing, , and showed that ,lhe h'ig'h transportation charges were * prohibitive,  being as high as a total of S50 per ton  from mine to smelter. At that time  and for a number of years afterward  the Sloean ores were marketed in the  United States. Theyj were bought by  Montana and Colorado smelters and the  competition to secure them was"very  keen. Leadville carbonates could no  longer be looked to as the basic supply  for . Colorado " smelters, and labor  troubles had curtailed other sources of-  lead.  Mexican lead ores were"later shutout  by a heavy duty, so that the American  smelters were forced to look abroad for  their supply of lead. This they dTd so  vigorously that the bulk of the tonnage  of the Sloean was diverted to that  country.  It now seems that the active cam-  paign for lead in this country was a  ���contributing factor-to-the ��� nomination  of the Sloean mines by the^Canadian  Pacific railway, from which that district is apparently suffering toda}'.  For, -with their lead market in Colorado, it is apparent that the Canadian  Pacific railway could haul the Sloean  ores but a small percentage of the way,  aad that it was consequently contribut  ing heavily to the business of its competitor in this country. Natural^-'the  prospect of degenerating into a feeder  to a competing line was anything but  pleasing to the Canadian Pacific railway, and it began to devibe% schemes  for relief. The moit feasible scheme  was to establish metallurgical works at  home to consume the output of the  home mines. This proposition would  enable the railroad to control the silver-lead industry, and at the same  time receive the'commendation of all  patriotic Canadians for establishing an  industrial center at home. The con-  sumation of the idea resulted in the  location of the metallurgical works at  Trail.  But one more stroke would have been  necessary to complete the establishment of home industry, viz.: fair transportation rates to.the mining companies. There appears, however, to be  little disposition on the part of the  Canadian Pacific railway to voluntarily  remedy this trouble and, in the meantime, a district which could be more  prosperous, suffers from depression.  The situation seems to fhow.'clearly  the enormous power possessed by a  transportation company in forcing or  retarding the growth of the mining  industry. .  In mining-, the foot wall of a vein is  the rock boundary .of its lower side,  on which a miner would stand wlien  breaking dovrn th-; ore.  -4.

WHITE & CO.,        Proprietors,   i  BOUNDARY GREEK   TIMES.  ROCK CREEK NOTES.  Placer miners of the old days say  that never since the great Cariboo excitement in 1848 has there been such a  light snowfall as was experienced la_t  -winter. They, state further that the  prospects for placering this fall are  very bright, and that there is sure to  be a big rush for locations on the  Frasei river bars, some,of which are  bare for the first-��� time in 42 years.  While this vmay be very good news for  placer miners it is the direct reverse  to mine owners and operators in the  Boundary country, especially to those  who have to depend on electrical power  generated from the Cascade Falls of  Kettle river. As stated elsewhere in  this, issue, a Times reporter visited  Rock Creek this week arid there saw  enough of the .height of the river in  comparison to the heights at similar  periods in previous years .o fully bear  out the claim - of the placer miners.  Rock creek rises in the Camp McKinney district and. has been workedfor  coarse and fine gold for many years.  Last fall there was "quite an excitement and a lot of work was done at  the mouth of the' creek. This year it  is anticipated that the biggest excitement on record will take place, as it is  quite unlikely that unless an uncommonly severe rainfall, is- forthcoming  the creek will practically- dry up by  the end of the summer. It is believed  that if bedrock could once, be reached  good values would result and, a very  determined effort was made to that end  last fall.- The water, however proved  too much,for the parties trying and the  excitement died a natural death. If  the water gets as low as there is every  reason to suppose it will this fall, another effort will be made and probably  with success. > '        i   :��� I  There is good reason for saying that  Camp McKinney w.ilf be idle thissum-  rner.- It appears that Coal Baron Duns-  muir owns some of the claims the big  company must have in order to,continue .their prospecting,*- and as James  is not anxious to sell unless at^his own  figure, it seems unfortunately, altogether likely that no work will be done  at all this year. 7 .

On' Nicholson creek, farther "north  over the first divide, there are some  very good properties. Work on these  hasralbobeeu abandoned for the same  reason. Many of them have fine showings of graphite, although so far not  enough development work has been  done to prove whether it exists in sufficiently large quantities to be worth  .working.        -^ -  Just west of Rock creek an immense  dike-of diorite crosses the country tothe north. A belt of serpentine also  exists- and -some-beautiful^ specimens,  were obtained on the river bank. This  rock will be used for marble work some  day, as it is capable of being worked  to a beautiful finish, and will be very  valuable for mantles, tilss and general  ornamental stone work.  changed to a coachman, as the fish see  it better than,the brown hackle. Some  good bags were taken last Sunday, one  gentleman getting about thirty pounds.  Henry Nicholson, the deputy mining  recorder at Camp McKinney, was visiting Rock Creek at the same time as  the Times reporter. Mr, Nicholson is  an old timer in the country and>Nichol-  son creek is*named after him. In case  two and two should be put together,  the information concerning Camp Mc*  Kenny did not come from,him', but  from parties more directly interested  in the properties themselves.  There are plenty of rattlesnakes  about, but if one is careful there is  little danger from them, as they rattle  before striking.

If the two teams would  erect a booth and furnish refreshments  they could manage to raise sufficient  -funds for athletic events in a small  way. Arrangements might be made  by some of the L,adies' societies of the  city to furnish lunch for visitors, as  the local hotel men do not care to take  any active pait in the celebration of  Dominion day.  ' The first"issue of the OrovilieWeekly-  Gazette, published by' Fred J. Fine,  has been received. It is a four-page  six-column publication, well patronized by advertisers, although all of the  'eighteen saloons doing business in the  town are not advertising. Before the  first issue of a newspaper the editor  should come to an understanding with  the saloon men���have them declare  their intentiOus as to whether they intend to live and let live or hog the  whole thing.

Bob  says that Roy H; Clark, Bob Longley,  Fletcher, aad Jack King are in the  camp, and John Cormick, H. B. Munroe and Duncan Ross are expected  shortly. In conclusion he says he and  Empey expect to "clean up some coin"  On their property.  JUST IN a fresh  ' ' Consignment;   ' ,!
