This .property, now controlled  by the B. C. Copper company, will undergo thorough exploration and prov-,  ing before the bond matures. Some  very fine ore hag been taken from the  bottom of'the shaft,, now at a depth  of about two hundred feet. Mineralization seems tp increase with depth  as noted by the large flakes of bornite.  In the bottom of the shaft native copper in a fissure vein of talc is exposed.  Every thing is working smoothly for  machinery that has been so long idle,  and quarters for employes are com-  fortaole. The Sunset is the' best developed property on Copper mountain  and its progress is sure to be of interest  to mining nien\ It has already, in a  large measure, solved the future of  Copper .mountain as_a_ mining_camp  and other companies may now take  heart and follow their leader and  pioneer mine.���Similkameen Star.

The property is under bond to Foulds  Bros, and Penny, who have been de-  developing it for the past three months.  As yet the lead has not been %crosscut,  and its extent is not known, but the'  samples brought into town would indicate that the ore is high grade. When  the lead has been crosscut it is the intention to (\ritt north and south, and  regular shipments made to the smelter. These shipments should, after  deducting expense of raining, freight  aud shipment charges, net a handsome  profit to the owners.  Tomorrow, Saturday, at White Bros*  store, every fifteenth cash caatomer  will receive a basket of chocolates.  ANOTHER ORE BODY.  At the Mother Lode mine a new ore  body has been discovered recently in  trie mule tunnel by diamond drill. A  hole was drilled near the mouth of the  tunnel to the southeast. The first 8  feet was waste, then for 48 feet the  drill continued in very nice ore, when  the waste was again struck. The drilling will be continued ��� some distance  farther. It is not known whether this  body has a connection with the new  ledge near the shaft or if it is an independent chute.���Anaconda News.  Tenacity ! Enterprise! Embodied  in these words is the history of the  founding and subsequent up-growth'of  the City of Greenwood���the financial,  commercial and mining centre of the  "Boundless Boundary." Ten years  ago this coming fall, the site that now  marks Greenwjood was thickly covered  by a, forest growth of tamarack, bull  pine and popular with dank marshes  caused by the' overflow of Boundary  Creek as it made" its tortuous, way-  through the heart of the mountain enclosed, valley southward to the Kettle  river. It was here in 189S that destiny  lead Robert Wood, a pioneer merchant  of the Okanagan, to'found a city. He  purchased several hundred acres, and  laid out a townsite two miles in length  by half a mile wide. A log store was  erected and the timbered acres christened "Greenwood."  The j'ear following George Arthur  Rendell and Ralph Smailss, who conducted a trading post at Boundary  Falls, amalgamated th'eir business  with Mr. Wood; and, with the uplifting  of the bond on the Mother Lode mine  in - Deadwood camp, by New York  capitalists���a momentous event for  the new camp���a., real impetuous was  given the outside world, already stirred by the boom at Rossland, to participate in the possibilities of the, em-  byro city and the truly remarkable  mineralized.1 country> that backed, it.  That same year C. Scott Galloway also  became interested in the -.townsite.  From "that time ion the town grew  apace; roads to the numerous nearby  camps were built mainly 'by local  enterprise, and the trade .thereof  swelled the business of the merchants.  In August, 1897, the place had assumed such proportions that it was incorporated and its people took over the  responsibility of self government.  Gradually the forest was cleared off;  Boundary Creek straightened out and  confined at a cost of $25,000; streets  graded "and miles of walks laid and  system, of waterworks, telephone and  electric lights installed. It became  moderin-zed. Then followed the completion of the Columbia & Western  branch of the C. P. R., and with the  advent of the "steam horse" Duncan  Ross1, now M. P., changed the Boundary Creek Times from a 'weekly to ,a  daily paper. Well does the writer remember those next six montns, as he  held down a strenuous job combining  the functions of telegraph editor, reporter and proof-reader. During that  brief fleeting period it -v, ere easier to  pick up $20 gold pieces for an article  luau ipl uOvt,   liic p-LlC-c  vi    a***- suuavnjJi*  ion to The Week.  If Greenwood ever experienced the  sensation of a "boom" it was during  1899-1900. Certainly good times reached a high-water level. People flocked  in; real estate and mineral claims  changed hands daily, a smelter was  nearing completion and scores of business blocks and hotels were going up.  Then followed the envitable depression  caused through overdoing things.  Many predicied that the bottom had  dropped out altogether, and, so departed for new fields of effort to again  flirt with Dame Fortune. The  rest, who perchance had sunk their  little all, either could not, or, realizing  that time only was needed to bring  out the temporary chaos, stuck and  some won out.  The past two years has wrought  wonderful cHangs in the fortunes of  several of the tenacious ones. The  opening up by local money of the  "high grade" prospects overlooked  for years in the scramble to obtain big  "low grade" ore bodies, resulted in  capital again coming to the front and  owners were enabled to sell for cash  or bond at good figures. Today,  Greenwood is not the city of the  "years of plenty"; with streets alive  with happy-go-lucky, prospectors,  speculators and the crowd that follows  in the wake of every mining boom.  Instead, it strikes the casual visitor as  infernally dull, relieved perhaps by  the continual toot-toot of a passing ore  train and the rumble of powder blasts  that come up from the earth and echo  and re-echo throughout the valley.  Look deeper, and one learns another  story. Wild speculation has ceased-so  too has the merry tinkle of the roulette  wheel, more sober methods are in  vogue. All down the line���banker,  merchant, miner, clerk and even padre  are investing their dollars in "high  grade" prospects and mines.  Immediately surrounding the city,  go where you will, every point of the  compass has its scene of mining activity within an hour's walk of the pOBt  office. Again, on a larger scale, if a  circle were discribcd with Greenwood  for its. centre and a radius of about  eight miles, the circumference would  pass through or include at least a'  dozen seperate mining camps. ', Within the first mile are working a score of  properties and it is this new, ever ex-  panding'pay-roll of the "high grade'*,  mines that local "capitalists" have  made that is vitalizing, and bodes so  much for the future' prosperity,of the  city. To this must be added the substantial pay-rolls at the smelters ofthe  British Columbia Copper Co., and the  Montfeal & Boston Consolidated M.-&  S. Co,, directly tributary, together,  with the big mines of Deadwood camp.,  Of its business men let me tell what  a well known drummer of a Victoria  house said to me in sizing up the present commercial.situation:     "Whole-'  salers, have long recognized the super-  ior"class of business men that.the city  possesses,  far   above   the average of  new camps.  t For this reason Green- ,  wood has had practically' no failures.'  in^itsi commercial life.   In other  interior' mining camps the number that  have,gone under���well let's; ^forget ;it.'  Business here is good."   Yes, it is' not .  flattery to add that Greenwood's busi i  nessmen are wide-awake and enterprising,  and it   is, to, this fact-that,.the  city  owes much of its progress and  stability.  ' AtTa glance the many business   blocks,   hotels, ��� churches, *civic  and provincial buildings, and numerous private residences���the ensemble,  of the town, as it were,  would hardly  be credited by a stranger to thegrowth  of less than a decade of Years.   Few  places there are in  the province, with"  double the age, equal to the "Commercial Metropolis of ,,the Boundary.".    .  , '  - A visit to the nearbV  mines, princi-"  pally located in' Providence and Sky- -  lark camps, is one of never failing in- \  terest, and just at the present/moment  they are attracting deserved attention  at the hands of mining men representing capital.    While the veins are invariably small, they are exceptionally  rich.     Perseverence   is   an   essential  requisite to   successful mining  here,  but there are-many examples already���  set���as    the   writer   has   given���that  should   be encouraging.   When   it is  remembered that nearly  two*thirds,of  the claims are owned, or are being developed by lc-cal men,  the outlook for  the high-grade   mines   is to say the  least, optimistic.    Within the year the  city will have at its doors a mining  camp that should double its present  population���and that is what is needed  in its upbuilding.    The following bri<*f  notes of the various properties tell a  story of mining activity, for which th"e  writer is indebted to the various mine  owners:  Starting at the northern boundary,  the claims lie on each side of Bound- j  ary creek and extend a mile beyond  the city. What is locally known as  The Alphabetical group,* at one time  consisting of twelve claims, owned by  the Boundary Creek Mining aud Milling company, now defunct, has been  split up. An American syndicate has  bonded some of the claims, including  the Spokane, and started development.  On the Gold Bug, formerly one of  the group, a 300-foot crosscut tunnel is  being driven by contract, which is now  in over 200 feet. In early days several  carloads of rich silver and gold quartz  ore were shipped to the smelter, a,nd  the present .owners believe with the  striking of the vein, at depth, the mine  will yield as prolifically as-ever.  The Boundary-Elkhorn MiningCo.,  limited, recently incorporated, and  controlled by Philip McDonald and  James Sutherland, the origidal owners of the Elkhorn group," is expected :  to resume development at once.

The board of license commissioners for the city meets on the  '14th inst. As none of the hotel-  keepers have complied with the  act, this is likely to be a prohibition city for thirty days.  Nothing has yet been done towards celebrating Dominion Day  in Greenwood. How would it be  to start now on a celebration for  say 1910. There might then be  some live hotel men in the city.

To show,- the necessity for a  railway run on business lines and  paying dividends on its merits,  and not as a ward of the nation,  a consignment of -paper for this  office was shipped over the C. P.'  R. from Montreal on the 9th May.  It is still in the care of the American-managed''Canadian nursling. It is likely to be with them  for^months to come. The American managers,of the Canadian  Pacific have to devote so much  time to the enactments of parlia-  men that the business of the system is"neglectedr~'Western freight  from the East appears to go oh  the catch-as-catch-can principle.  It may get here in a month or  a year, it is all the same to our  parliamentary advisers.  The railway situation at Ottawa remains unchanged, but the  C. P. R. appears to be gaining  ground. In British Columbia  there must ^ be' very potent influences at work, when the editor  of the Nelson Tribune���the self-  appointed and continuously  heraided champion of the people  as against monopoly���opposes  railway competition for the Similkameen. There must be very  potent influences at work in Ottawa, when members of the house  of commons will hesitate for a  moment to grant privileges te the  people of the Similkameen already possessed by every other  portion of the Dominion. There  can be no reasonable argument  used in opposition to the V., V.  & E. legislation now before the  house. We know the influences  that are at work in-B.'C. with  the object of creating-a sentiment  ���against an American road, still  there is-only one question that  should be considered, and that is  Is the development' of the Simil  k^meen to  be  retarded   simply  to make a preserve for the Cana  dian Pacific Railway company ?  The Canadian sentiment is all  rot. We doubt if there is a single  Canadian, not in the pay of the  C. P. R., in the district affected  who is opposed tb the Great  Northern extension. Most of the  persons .shouting "Canada for  the Canadians" are those who  have changed their allegiance  every time they have crossed or  recrossed the 49th parallel. If,  after receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in cash and land'  subsidies from the Canadian peo��  ple.'/the Canadian Pacific Railway  Co. cannot compete in an open  field with a man who, a few years  ago was running a dog train out"  of St. Paul, it is time call a halt  on sentiment. If the Canadian  r-t>ad, managed by Americans,  can not or will not give the peo-'  pie the service necessary to develop the resources of the coun-  country,,there is no reason why  an American road, managed by a  Canadian, should not be allowed  to relieve us from the extortionate ' charges   of . the    American  managed Canadian concern.  ^ ..

Zb*  seems to demonstrate the value  of the V. V. & E. in embryo to  British Columbia. Perhaps it  accounts for the fr ensued and  rathei* spiteful opposition of the  Vancouver Province lo the extension of the charter of the V.  V. and E. road.  The C, P. R. is a great corporation. The extent of its power  we are gaining- some conception  of by the trend of events at Ottawa. But a millioti and a half  of dollars is a good deal of money  and worthy of a strenuous light,  apart altogether from the value  of the preserve that is at stake.  The Province fought valiantly  aud courageously, althongh as  usual illogically and unreasonably, against tbe Grand Trunk  Pacific scheme, But in that case  the will of the, people and the  catise of-justice eventually prevailed. So it will iu'ihe case of-  the V., V: & E.- The defenders  of monopoly may be able to shield  themselves for a time behind the  absurd plea that a railway from  one side of the border drains  wealth one way and that a railway from *the other side drains  it the other way. But presently  the people will malce the fact.  clear that they cannot be deceived  by such fool tales.���Victoria  Times.

To Foreign Countries .  2 00  2 S3  FRIDAY JUNE 9, 1905  FOOLISH DEFENDERS  The G. P. R. as one of the srreat  institutions of Canada is worthy  of the admiration, if not of the  deepest reverence, of all Canadians. , We are not sure-that the  power it wields iu the counsels of  the Dominion and of the provinces, is not actually awesome  in its effects. Its influence over  the railway committee of the  house of commons is both mysterious and impressive. Tbe  company has also the faculty of  inspiring, the deepest affection in  rather unexpected quarters. It  is seldom indeed that newspapers  cannot find a speck upon which  to found a criticism in the conduct of the affairs of a great corporation. There are journals in  British Columbia whose devotion  to the C. P. R. is almost canine  in its manifestations. * If the interests of the country and the interests of the public appear to  come in conflict, as they must occasionally, such newspapers as  the Vancouver Province can always be depended upon to regard  One of the most common and important uses of limestone is as a flux  i-.i the smelting of iron, lead and other  metals, The action of the lime reduces thVmetals, and the impurities in  the ores,' such as silica, are carried off  iu the slag".  Native sulphur is sometimes found  in metalliferous veins. It does, not  occur as often as we would suppose,  considering that with depth sulphide  ores, are the rule, and from the fact  in iron pyrites one atom of sulphur is  loosely held. Rarely does native sulphur, con taiti gold, but cases have been  noted in some Mexican mines.  with astonishment any attempt  to protect the people from the  consequences of the perpetuation  of a transportation monopoly.  The devotion of our Vancouver  contemporary to the .cause of its  friend the C. P. R. cannot be explained upon any hypothesis other  than the 113'puotic. -The representatives of the province in the  Dominion parliament are at the  present time fighting against tbe  proposal to perpetuate a monopoly in transportation in Southern British Columbia. The said  representatives by their acts, says  the Province, have declared, themselves traitors to the true interests of the people. The'C. P.  R. is the friend of the people.  The members of parliament are  the euemies pf the people. How  can it be otherwise when tho representatives ��� of the C. P. R. and  the representatives of the people  are opposed to each other ?  It is the easiest matter, in the  world to demonstrate the soundness of this proposition. The  purpose of the Great .Northern  in asking permission to build a  railway that will establish communication through Southern  British Columbia and make possible the development of the potential resources of that region is  apparent to all "who, view the matter through the e3res of true patriotism. ' Mr. Hill is an enthusiastic American. He desired to  feed United States citizens with  the wealth that should , be reserved for the'feeding of "Canadian cities. Mr. Hill claims differently of course.    He  says he  wants   to   make   money  for the  , *-     *  *  shareholders of his line' and insists that he cannot do that without creating business that must  be beneficial, to all who participate in such business. The claim  of the railway man seems reasonable. But'they are but superficial observers who take such a  view 'as that. If the Great Northern be permitted to have its way  it will construct lines from the  south to the north, and naturally  lines which' run , from the  south to the north must drain all  the wealth they encounter from  the north to the south. The aim  of the C. P. R., if we believe  what the Province says, is different: It is true the C. P. R. has'  carried its lines across the border  in Eastern and Central aud Western���Canada. But_at__all .these  places the road was built from  the north to the south. Under  the circumstances as created by  the patriotic C. P. R. the tendency of the wealth is to flow  northward aud to enrich the people of canada. We admit that  the natural tendency as explained  by the Province and all the  friends of the C. P. R. is difficult  to explain. It is what may be  termed "unnatural phenomena."  It cannot be understood unless  we bring into play the most childlike faith.    That we are all ex-  pected   to   do when the special  pleader  of the  C. P. R. has the  floor, as he has at Ottawa and in  British Columbia  at  the present  time.  Lest the value to the province  of the C. P. R. may not be properly appresiated it may be necessary  to point out that at the last  session of the legislature it is said  to have asked a bonus  in  excess  of a million and a half dollars as  au  inducement  to  construct less  than  fifty  miles of railway from  Spence's Bridge to Nicola.    It is  surmised that if  the V., V. & E.  line were built the C. P. R. would  proceed with  the  construction of  that short line with  all -celerity  and   "without    reference   to   any  bonus.    It  would do this because  such  a  branch would  be  neces-1 practical     watchmaker  sary to  enable  t-he company to jeweller.  compete with the Hill road.

SOO feet of work���shaft tunnel and  drift���have teen done on the property  inothe last two years, and ore to the  value of $75,000 has been taken therefrom. The principal development is a  142-foot incline shaft, following- the  vein. It is said that the richest silver  ore ever discovered in British Columbia came from this mine. The ore  consists of massive native silver, ruby  silver, galena, gray copper, and iron  and copper pyrites in a quartz gangue,  Returns from shipments gave $102.58,  $116.62 and $123.48 per ton. The vein  is from 6 to 12 inches in width.  The Providence is owned by a company composed of Chicago and local  people. A week ago 35 men were put  to work drifting north and south on the  lead at the 400-foot level and drifting  and stoping in the south tunnel on the  300-foot level. The mine is well developed and has at different periods  returned handsome dividends to the  shareholders. It is intended by the  management to install an ' air compressor of 7 to 10 drills immediately.  The shaft is to be continued to the 500-  foot level. Shipments, too, will shortly  be resumed.  Swinging eastward, adjoining 'the  Providence, ia the Fremont, owned by  the Greenwood-Fremont Mines, Ltd.,  and financed by Grand Forks, Eholt  and local people. There are three veins  opened, carrying galena, and assaying  S78 in gold and^ silver.  Two prospect shafts are down 60 and  40 feet irespectively, and.a crosscut  tunnel is being ariyen to strike the ore  _t depth. Further prospecting at the  lower end of the claim, it ishop ed, will  disclose the continuation of the Providence ledge.  Adjoining the. Fremont is the  Strathmore, owned by the, Green-  wood-Strathmore Mines, Limited.  A crosscut tunnel now in over 340 feet  is being' driven , to tap the vein at a  depth of 500 feet. Previous work consists of a 60-foot shaft, surface trenching, crosscuts and drifts of 200 feet.  Sample shipments of the ore averaged  $100 per ton in gold and silver, from a  vein 6 to 9 inches in width. A carload  of sacked ore is now ready to go to  the smelter. Some phenomenclly rich  samples yielded $288 in gold and silver.  At the Princs Henry, which is under  bond, a 100-foot shaft is being sunk.  Further east and higher ,up on the  hill is the I,ake group of 177 acres,  owned by the Chicago, B*. C Mining  comwany. Work at present is being  confined, to the Don Pedro. Harry  -Shallenberger is in charge. The shaft  is being .continued down,from a depth  of 73 to 150 feet. The vein averages 12  inches. In following down the vein  to the 73-foot over a carload of ore was  extracted,'more than sufficient to pay  for development. A horse whim has  been installed.,  The- Crescent, also under the man-  agemnt of Mr, Shallenberger, is again  working and the crew is being added  to-daily.   A half interest in the mine  * i  was sold last, week to Colonel I,. T.  Dickason' and associates of Chicago!  Ample capital is now forthcoming to  place the property in a position for  continuous development, and machinery is is to be installed.  The Preston, adjoining the Crescent,  recently changed hands, and is now  controlled by a Chicago syndicate, under the local management of "William  Baillie. Associated in the company  to be formed are Colenel ly. T. Dickason, a millionaire owner of coal and  stone quarries in Indiana and Illinois;  Ferdinand W. Peck, formerly director-  general of the American exhibit at the  Paris exposstion; Samuel K. Morton,  Jr., vice-president of the Manufacturers' Bank of Chicago; Edward Ford  Johnson, insurance broker, and Dick  Armstrong, formerly of Grand Forks  and now residing in the Windy City.  The new owners have a crew of 14 men  developing three veins. The general  average value of the ore is$126, though  samples from the No. 1 vein assayed  $678 per ton. Small shipments of selected ore gave values of $200. Ore  from all the veins is of a shipping  character. The company will later on  install a compressor plant and develop  the mine on a large scale.  The Skylark is an instance of what  can be accomplished with a little capital and intelligent effort. For years it  was the banner claim of the camp. It  was located July, 1893, and bonded to  the Spokane and Great Northern company, which went to work shortly afterwards and during the winter of  1893 4 shipped about 100 tons to the  smelters across the line. The returns  gave 150 to 300 ounces in silver and $15  to $20 in gold. For a time the mine  was idle. Again in 1897 another shipment was sent to a Montana smelter.  Then development was suspended,  Last fall a syndicate of Phoenix people  secured a bond for $30,000. The owners would probably have accepted far  less on a cash basis, and perhaps at  the time, firmly believing that the  mine was gutted of its rich ore, softly  laughed up their sleeves. Work commenced October last. The owners  subscribed less than $2,000 for a starter.  In one month alone over $7,000 was received for ore shipped to the smelter,  The terms of the bond $1,000 a month,  have been carried out, and the mine  and the cost of development.   First-  class ore averages $140 and the second-.  elasa $40 per ton in gold and silver.  At the Last Chance, under charge of  Superintendent McVicar, a considerable amount of development has been  done. The ore is similar to the Skylark. Work is also being prosecuted  ,on the Hope No. 2 and Meadow Bark.  Local and North Dakota capital is  interested in the bond on the EPU,  under the management of Duncan  Mcintosh. Quite a force is at present  employed. A shaft, is down over 150  faet and nearly 1,000'feet of drifting  has been done on the lead which aver-  a good eight inches.  Adjoining the E P U on the east is  the Bay, owned by Fuller and Hall.  Eight men are at work sinking a 100-  foot shaft and drifting on the vein. It  is aaid of this property that it has the  reputation'of shipping the beBt average grade two cars of ore, taken from  wall to wall $119.55 per ton. The vein  measures from 8 to 32 inches of quartz.  The ore house is now full.  Phoenix people riave a bond on the  Mavis, owned by E. T. Wickwire.  Sinking ��� and drifting is in progress  and from seven to ten tons of ore is*  ready for shipment. The Tip Top is  under bond to ' the Skylark Development Co. The Twin, Trilby and Gold  Finch, under bond locally, have small  crews:.  Six men are developing the.Barbara,  adjoining the Gold * Finch. A Chicago syndicate, represented by Alex.  Miller, owns the claim. A shaft  is down on the vein 190 feet, with  nearly 200 feet of crosscuts and drifts.  Open cuts and trenching, prove the  continuity of the vein for several hundred feet, with values from $50 to $60,  though occasional bunches of ore are  met carrying the values up to $150 per  ton, chiefly gold. There are ten to  fifteen tons of ore on the dump and  shipments will be made this month.  The Silver Cloud, owned by L. A.  Smith, Charles Johnson and J. McCreath, is developed to tbe depth of  100 feet, with drifts at the 30 and 100-  foot levels. The property ha6 shipped  26 tons, -the first-class ore averaging  $113' and the second $28 per ton. Ac.  tive development is being prosecuted.  The Helen is owned by Chicago and  local men, represented by Alex. Miller.  The vein nas an average width of 12  inches and is very .massive and heavy.  The shaft is down 100 feet and there is  over 200 feet of drifting' and crosscuts  at various levels. Three leads exist  which have been opened by cuts on  the surface. In the early history of  the mine some exceptionally high  values were obtained from ore shipments. Recent small tests, gave returns of $98 per ton. Nine men are  employed.  The Capital Prize, also south of the  town* is owned by Sydney M. Johnson.  . West of tbe city are the Bonnie Bell,  Highland Queen and' Mountain Queen  and Mountain View. The Highland  Queen is under bond to the Foulds  brothers and Mr. Penny, who are driving a prospect tunnel to tap the vein  at a depth o�� 75 feet. The vein was  struck early this week. Julius Ehrlich,  W. T. Smith and J. C. Haas have just  bonded the Mountain Queen.  ��� Two and a half miles south of the  city is Smith's camp.���The Greenwood-  Republic Gold Mines, Ltd., own the  Republic, Last Chance, Nonsuch and  and Hidden Treasure on which extensive work has been carried on for the  past several years. The Nonsuch was  the first quartz location in this section  of the Boundry and was located by W.  T. Smith in 1886. Mr. Smith is the  manager of the company. The ore  here is a sulphide carrying values in  gold, copper and silver, and running  from $11 to $21 in carload shipments.  The principal work is being prosecuted  on the Nonsuch, where the tunnel is  in over 400 feet on the vein. The tun"*  nel is to be continued until the Last  Chance shaft���now down 100 feet���is  reached," about 1,000 feet in all, At  the point of connection, where an upraise will be made to meet the shaft, it  figured   that   400   feet  of   stoping  1S  ground will be had. The completion  of the long tunnel and connection will  allow of much cheaper means of mining than at present. E, J. Roberts  and E- L. Tate of Spokane and W. T.  Smith are the principal shareholders.  A short distance from the Republic  group is the Golconda group, owned bj"  Eastern Townships people, headed by  Hon. Geo. E. Foster and Rufus Pope.  The ore ia an arsenical iron carrying  principally gold values, from $14 to  $43 a ton. A 600-foot tunnel is being  driven to strike the vein at a depth of  375 feet, and three feet per day is being;  made. Mr. Haas, the manager, is  confident that.the ore will be reached  before the end of the present month.

In this country rcls are almost exclusively used in crushing ores dry for  the cyanide process.  The strength cf'a wire rope may be  taken as 66 per cent, of the combined  strengths of its component wires.  Brass was used for hundreds of years  before zinc was discovered. Brass was  first made by smelting mixtures of  zinc and copper ores, and by treating  molten copper with oxydized zinc ores.  The manufacture of artificial diamonds is a most dangerous and costly  experiment. Artificial diamonds have  been produced, but they were so small  that it would 'take over a thousand to  weigh a carat.  Marbles are variously colored. Some  of the most highly 'prized are mottled.  Marbles which contain intermixed serpentine, such, for example, as that  found near Charleston lake in Leeds  county, Ontario, have a handsome appearance when polished."  Artificial rubies are made by raising-  carefully to red heat a mixture of  alumnia, barium fluoride and a small  quantity of bicromate of potash. In  the resulting matrix is found the  rubies. These manufactured rubies  ' are most excellent imitations of the  real stone, being like the real in both  composition and shape.  The base of most artificial gem  stones is a peculiar kind of glass called  paste. It differs from ordinary glass  in its having SO per cent, of oxide of  lead as a constituent, this addition imparting to past a brilliancy aud refractive power not possessed by ordinary  glass. \  All oxides which had hitherto been  regarded as irreducible have been reduced through the use of the electric  furnace. Upon experiments which he  has made, Borchers bases the claim  that carbon is ' capable of taking the  oxygen from any known compound  at temperatures within withh. the  range of the electric furnace. ' Similarly, other reducing agents may be  made effective, and the decomposition  can be produced without any reducing  agent whatever by utilizing the elec  trolytic action of the current. This  has resulted in .unlocking various of  nature's stores, making available for  man's use such materials as aluminum,  magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, chromium, silicon, and many  others which previously could be obtained only with great*difficulty.  Fire setting, as practised by ancient  miners, was not only an expensive and  slow, but a very dangerous method of  mining. A pile of wood against the  face to be worked  was ignited after  - the miners had left for the surface.  ' The heat disintegrated the rock, which  was later removed with bars and gads.  Fumes, from the operation so frequently penetrated- to neighboring  mines and killed workmen there, that  in many cases fire-setting was pro  hibited by law.  The cyanide assay- of-lead ores isa  very convenient one and usually gives  very clean buttons. It is not used,  however, on account of the expense. It  .!���       .     - j,     ���  will give a higher result than the black  flux assay, but of course, unles's the  ! button is very impure, a lower result  '    than the ordinary wet analysis.  The choice of the detonating cap for  7 exploding dynamite should be given  more consideration than is commonly  paid to it. The mere fact that the cap  sets ' off the explosive is not a real  measure of its value. A good, strong  cap Will completely detonate dynamite-  but a weak cap, while setting off .he  dynamite, will not get out the full  amount of work it is capable of doing.  The use of weak caps will also give an  undue amount of what the mirier calls  '- stinkers."  Carbon' dioxide, commonly called  carbonic acid gas, has several uses in  the arts. It is most commonly obtained from the limestones for commercial purposes by heating them to  such a temperature that decomposition  results, quicklime and carbon dioxide  being formed. The gas may also be  extracted from the rocks bv* treating  5 them with acids, when effervescence  takea place and the gas is liberated.  At several places carbon dioxide issues  from the crust of the earth, and at one  place in New York state the gas originating in this way is collected and used.  The full reports of the farewell  speech of Joseph Choate, the retiring  American minister in London, show it  to have been a very fine address.  Among the impressions he would carry  away with him he mentioned the characteristics most creditable to the people of Great Britain���the reign of la-w,  the perfection of individual liberty,  ���elf-sacrificing patriotism, the instinct  for public life, and the purity of public  service.���Toronto Globe.  _-"  l^iMi)4>4Hl^^^  _-9   -SlilMKJ  _iS��*J!��!l_  i I 1   m  Ps 11 k l{      jja -  p _i ft h s I. ��  NORTH  -#  Never in the history of the Boundary has the district had a brighter outlook than With the  successful de  velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating  at a very small cost, the continued opening-up of new high grade properties 'and their successful and profitabl .  operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to, the list of new finds and  bigger values, It is Readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte, If you  therefore want to participate in its future prosperity, now is the time to invest both in mines and real estate, For  NINETY DAYS we intend giving you a chance to make a safe and profitable investment.
