OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  ��tfR\ni��RK IS GUARAMTEEB  THE BIG SMELTERS  Are    Treating   Enormous  Quantities of Ore.  MORE MEN ARE WANTED  British Columbia and Dominion Copper Company Blow in Additional Furnaces.  A. LOGAN & C  ��  Copper Street  Greenwood  COPPER STREET  5l  GREENWOOD  =_6  Boundar}* smelters are. now in  a position to treat over 6,000 tons  of ore a day, or 2,000,000 tons a  vear. The aggregate treatment  of the smelters for the year 1907  do not indicate any such figures,  but this is accounted for by reason  of labor troubles' at home and  labor troubles at the coal mines,  necessitating* vexatious "shut  downs" for want, of fuel. It is  confidently expected, however,  that since 1907 has had already  more than a full share of labor  difficulties, that the mines 'and  smelters will be run to their full  capacity during the remaining  months of the year.  At the present, time the great  need is more miners, especially  machine men. * The Mother Lode  alone requires SO additional skilled  miners, and all the ..other big  mines are laboring under a similar shortage. Mine managers  are hoping that this shortage of  men will be removed during the  next few weeks. If not, then  some of the furnaces must be  blown out, because it will be absolutely impossible to keep up the  supply of ore required bv the  spielters with the present force.  The B. C. Copper company this  week blp\v in the third furnace,  and the company's smelter can  easily treat 2.000 tons a, day.  The Dominion Copper company's  smelter, with the new large furnace, which was blown in last  week, and which .is working very  satisfactorily, has a capacity of  1,400 tons a day, and the Granby  company could easily treat from  2.S00 to 3,000 tons a day at its  smelter at Grand Porks.  The Snowshoe mine began  shipping to the B. C. Copper  company's smelter at Greenwood  this week, contracting to deliver  600 tons a day for treatment.  Heretofore all the ore from this  mine was being treated at the  Trail smelter.  On the other hand, the B. C.  Copper company, which is operating the Emma., mine in Summit  Camp, has arranged to ship ore  from this property to the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks.  11"is ~difliculT-to realize"".lie  enormous quantity of ore treated  daily by the Boundary smelters.  The B. C. Copper company's output is equal to a column of broken  rock a foot square and eight miles  long, or a pyramid a foot square  square and five miles high of  solid ore. .  The old Cariboo mine at Camp  McKinney is looking well. The  mill is running night and day,  and the Phoenix syndicate which  is operating the mine under lease  are soon expecting a clean up, It  is quite evident that the Cariboo  was not shut down because the  ore had been exhansted.  The Dominion Copper company  is preparing to pay dividends. A  Boston report says, regarding  this company:  "Almost simultaneously with the  retirement from net earnings of 8200,-  000, or 20 per cent, of its outstanding  mortgage bonds, the Dominion Copper  Co., Ltd., is doubling its production of  copper. '  "On Monday the long anticipated  blowing in of the Dominion Copper  Co.'s new big furnace will take place,  and the company should double its  present output, resulting in estimated  net earnings of at least 3100,000 per  month.  "The company's plant will now have  a capacity of 1,500 tons per day, arid,  allowing for shutdowns, etc., the  average tonnage treated will be at  least 1,200 tons per day. With this  output of ore the management expects  a production of 9,000,000 pounds of  copper per annum.  "During the past year the operation  and development work at the mines has  been  changed  from  steam  to electric  power. Most of the machinery at the  mines has been replaced with new. The  smelter has been rebuilt, its eapacity  doubled and changed from steam tb  electric power. The economies in the  operation which will result from these  improvements should enable the company to mnke its cepper at a cost of  inside 9 cents per pound; it is expected  that better than 8j_ cents will be  reached. With copper at 25 cents per  pound the company should earn 25 per  cent on the par value of its stock, after  retiring each year SlOO.000 of its outstanding mortgage bonds from the net  earnings and after providing for all  fixed charges- With copper at 20 cents  per pound, the company should earn 17  per cent on the par value of its stock.  '���June 1, the company retired from  its net earnings 5200,000, or 20 per cent,  of its outstanding mortgage bonds.  "After paying for the building and  installation of the new big furnace,  together with the other improvement8  at the mines and smelter, besides retiring the S200,000 bonds, the company  has on hand over $400,000in cash. This  strong financial showing will enable  the company to go on a dividend basis  at once.  "Tn anticipation of 1he present large  tonnage now being inaugurated, the  company has spent a large amount on  development work during the present  year. The Rawhide, Brooklyn and  Idaho mines, situated iu Phoenix  camp, and adjoining the properties of  the Gr-uiby Co., will furnish 700 or  800 tons of ore per day, the balance  coming from the Sunset and Crown  Silver properties, in the Deadwood  Camp, adjoining the Mother Lode, the  principal producer of the British Columbia Copper Co.  "Title to the Athlestan mine is now  vested -in the Dominion Copper Co.  Several thousand tons of this ore,  averaging $6 to $8 per ton in gold,  have been run through the Dominion  Copper Co.'s smelter. Exploration and  development work is now in progress,  and ore from , this property will be  shipped, within the next two or three  months.  "The compiny does not. contemplate  being satisfied with an output of 1,200  tons per day, and M. M; "Johnson, the  chief engineer of the company, has  been instructed by the board of directs  ors to prepare plans for an additional  1,500 ton per day smelter capacity. The:  cash on hand is more than sufficient to  install this additional capacity,without  the issuing of any. additional'capitalization, and without using any of the  net earnings from operation of the  present capacity, but allowing these  earnings to go to the shareholders in  dividends."  PLEDGES WELL KEPT  The Liberal government has been  true to the people who reposed their  confidence in the men chosen to govern  the country. While both parties can  promise prosperity, any party may so  direct the affairs of a nation that favorable conditions under which prosperity  may flourish can be created. This  was done by the Liberal government.  Its western immigration policy peopled  that country with sturdy homeseekers.  Transportation was facilitated so that  Eastern Canada participated in the  impetus given to business of every  character, ���  The tariff was so ordered that sufficient protection was given to infa.nt  industries, and at the same time it was  so spread over the entire list of impor-  tations-in^a'moderate^mahn.r^'t^  hanced revenue was the direct result,  and means were provided whereby  great public works for the benefit of all  the people were commenced and carried  to successful completion.  The strictest supervision was promised over public expenditure. Proper  economy, having regard to a clue performance of the public service, was  promised and duly put in practica  operation. A severe system of auditing  before payment, is insisted upon, and  in this regard alone it may be said  that many.thousands of dolUrs of the  peoples' money have been saved.  Lands have found their way into the  hands of the settler, with the result  that, under the present administration,  thousands of homesteaders are found  each year, occupying tlie lands as  against hundreds uuder a Conservative  administration.  Lands heretofore supposed to be  worthless, have been transferred to irrigation companies upon the express  condition that hundreds of thousands  ot dollars shall first be expended in  irrigation ditches.  Coal lands remain the property of  the government. They may be leased  for a term of years, and it is provided  that the actual settler shall purchase  his fuel at a reasonable puce. The  lands must be worked or they revert to  the government.  LARGE MINING DEAL  Visitors Loud in Praise of  Boundary.  DR, B1SSELL STRONG TALKS  And Gives His Views of the Wonderful Mining- Resources of the  Boundary District.  COUNTY COURT  Loblolly pine, used as mine timber,  measuring 5 in. wide and 12. high,  with IS ft. between supports, will hold  a load of 14.900 pounds.  Drilling oil wells in Kansas is usually done with a standard or carpenter's  portable rig of the American cable-  tool or oil-well system. The derricks  vary in height from 40 to 75 feet.  Titnbermen in the larger coal mines  in Montana receive S3.60 per day of 8  hours, and their helpers S3.  D. Bissell Strong, M. D.,' of  Northport,was iu town this week,  accompanied by 1_. J. Hamer of  the same place. .While here Dr.  Strong viewed the Greyhound  properties wilh Mr. Moffatt, and  states that iu all probability a  deal will be consummated with  eastern capital at once, which  will run into the neighborhood of  seven figures. The Doctor was  much impressed with, this section  of B. C. and spoke' in the most  glowing terms of the prosperity--  and material advancement of the  Boundary since his last visit. He  said that he was strongly in favor  of bringing more American capital into this country, stating as  his reasons that capital felt safer  in B. C. under the British flag  than in the states. "We have  our much boasted freedorh on the  other side, but also a certain lawlessness and disregard for order,  and the existing government,  which is always dangerous and  inimical to the interests of invested capital', whilst here you  have freedom without license, a  beautiful country, endless natural  resources, a strong government  and a people steady in their respect for it."  In his own country the Doctor  is a strong Republican, and voice"*  his views on the coming .190S  presidential election in a letter to  the Northport News, dated April  17, in which he says: "I am  very much in favor of what I  may call, a 'National Economic  Trust,' based on the aigis of 'a  square deal' to labor; this combination would eventually unite  under a wise government supervision and control our vast aggregations of organized capital and  labor. This idea can only be  forwarded by working to keep up  our present era of good times and  unexampled prosperity, aud this  must be done by selecting Roosevelt to the presidential chair of  1908."  "Why," he said, "we need  Roosevelt, we cannot do without  him. If Roosevelt is not returned for the presidency I intend  to emigrate to B. C. at once, and  Tt^igirri5e"a'gboa^tHifi^'"toiiclo_in"  any case. I consider that from  most points of view that Canada  is a better place than the states."  The Doctor is a well travelled  man of wide experience. Educated at Yale, he took degrees,  and then traveled through Europe, locating for a time in  France, and was iu Paris at the  time of the commune. He ended  by stating that he never was more  favorably impressed with any  country than he wars with the  Boundary section of 13. C, and  his travelling companion, R. J.  Hamer, also expressed his pleasure and keen appreciation at the  treatment he had received from  the Greenwood citizens. "And,"  he said, "we bave a splendid  proposition here���nothing better.  We will be back in three weeks  at latest, to take it over, that is,  if everything moves as we expect."  The Doctor and Mr. Hamer left  on the stage for Midway Wednesday morning to take the Great  Northern train and proceed on  their way into Montana, whore  they will view another property  in which they are interested, returning to Greenwood within a  month.

Cummins Tell of Some  Promising*  THINGS DP THE NORTH FORK  MInine  Notes-Once  Famous Payne  Mine Sacrificed at a Sale  in Montreal.  W. E, Cummins, the veteran  prospector, is in the city for a  few days, and will leave early  next week for Franklin camp,  where he has extensive interests.  "I cannot understand," he said*  this morning, "why more attention is not being paid to this  camp. Up t6 the present it has  been handicapped byAtransporta-  tiou facilities, but a railway is  now being slowly but surely constructed up the North Fork to  the camp. There are some of the  best showings in Franklin camp  that I have seen in the district,  and I prospected the most of it.  Only a few days ago, two Danes,  who were working a proper ty,  uncovered a body of as fine and  rich looking copper ore as one  would wish to see. Another  claim, tha 'Copper,' is showing  up well. To my mind, there is  no camp offers better inducements  for the investment pf capital  than Franklin."  David Good intends leaving for  the north country early in June.  He has a deal on for some of his  Deadwood camp properties.  The visit of Sir Wilfrid Laurier to  London, in connection with the Colonial conference, has brought down attacks from many envious persons and  periodicals. They seek occasion in the  incident to charge the prime minister  with a desire to glorify himself at the  expense of Canada. Such a charge is  more than ridiculous, it is asinine. Sir  Wilfrid upon every occasion, both in  his personal conduct and attitude on  public questions, has attracted dignity  to the great country whose representative he is. In dealing with affairs  involving Canadian politics, he has  invariably kept aloof from expressing  any opinion^vhich might be interpreted  as an interference with British domestic  politics. His attitude throughout a  very trying ordeal has been that of .a  statesman thoroughly alive to his responsibilities, conscious of the dignity of his own position. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier emerges from the -conference  looming larger in public affairs than  -when-he-entered^it.-J:Ie-has'-=gained7in-  personal prestige, Canada is better  known, and respected in proportion,  and will ultimately be the beneficiary  of all the good that Sir Wilfrid accom'  plished on that occasion.  OUTPUT OF BOUNDARY ORES  THEY CROWD SATAN  "You reckon these fault findin'  brethren go to heaven?"  "Some oi thern will have to. The  other place is too full of them."���Atlanta Constitution.  The i.ow grade mines of "the Boundary, which first began shipment in  1900, sending out 100,000 tons that  year, have been steadily increasing.  The 1900 shipments were 1,161,537 tons,  and that of 1907 will be a large gain  thereon.  The high grades., up to the end of  1906, had in the past four years shipped  out over 10,000 tons with a value of.  over $1,000,000.  Mines.

The bidding  was started by the Senator at  $800, and from that price the bids  jumped up until $60,000 was  reached, when the property was  knocked down to Mr. Forget.  For years the Payne stood at  the head of the list of British  Columbia dividend payers, over  $1,000,000 having been paid out  to shareholders. The property-  consisted of ��� four claims, all  small, located on September 9th,  1891, being among the first located in the Sloean. They are  on Payne mountain, on the slope  toward Carpenter creek, two miles  in a straight line from Sandon.  The compan}-- owning the prox**-  -erty was capitalised at $2,500,-  000 iu Si shares.  ���Presumabl-yras���the-bondholu--  ers  have  sold   the  properly, the  shareholders are   wiped  out  and  wiil not receive a cent.  The Payne is a singular instance of a good property ruined  aud thrown away by stupidly  gross mismanagement, or want  of sane management. Now that  the property has come into Senator Forget's hands, it may be  opened up in an intelligent way  and made to pay a magnificent  return on the sum invested.  No mining man who knows tlie  property has any idea that it is  worked out, and if a practical  man is put iu charge it will not  be long before the value of the  mine is again demonstrated.  In the year 1..99 tbe shares sold  at $4.20 for $5. Later the shares  were reduced to Si, and were  quoted at SS cents. What the  Senator will do is not as yetClan-  uounced.  PRICES OF METALS  Increased interest is shown in tli,e  use of potash feldspar for fertilizing  purposes. Potash is an important  plant food which in fertilizers has  usually been applied in the form ot"  easily soluble potash salts imported  from Germany.  The prices of the metals continue  very satisfactory, and with slight iltic-  tuations, hover around   the   following:  Copper       23 cent;  Silver       65 cent.*  Lead         5 cent;  KEEP KOOL  By going to the ice cream social to bi  given   by   the   ladies   of    St.   Jude'  ! church in the dining room of the Com  mercial hotel, on Tuesday,   25th  June.  j Ice cream,  strawberries,   candies and  jcake  will  be  on   exhibition afternoon  ' and evening.

and had lie then acted iu the interests of the province, instead of
playing the school boy, he probably would have succeeded in securing better terms.
If Premier McBride,   now that
has has had his trip to   England,
would come back  home and seriously apply himself to the proper
administration of public   affairs,
"better terms" would soon become
a  dead   issue  in   this   province,
With the development of its magnificent natural resources, British
Columbia would soon become such
a revenue producer that the other
provinces  would  be  kicking  because they gave their  consent to
granting British Columbia exceptional treatment.
Everyone, including Mr. McBride, should now be happy. He
had his trip to England, two
words have beeu eliminated to
please him, the Conservative organs have found justification for
their faith in McBride, and the
province is exactly in the same
position as it was when McBride
started on his holiday jaunt.

The first Canadian  convention
in the interest  of irrigation will
be held at Calgary on  July 17th.
A broad aud  comprehensive   irrigation policy on the  part   of the
federal government in the United
States has  beeu   instrumental in
maki-ig fertile thousands of acres
of arid laud.   The Canadian west
and particularly the  province of
British  Columbia,  has  much  to
gain   from   a similar   irrigation
policy.    The Calgary convention
should   be   a  success.    It can  be
made so by a large and representative attendance.    Anyone interested in  irrigation  will be made
welcome.   It is expected thai several U. S. authorities  on   irrigation will be present  and   address
the convention.

FRIDAY, JUNE 21 IW*
HAS NO POLICY,
Mr. R. L. Borden, leader of the
Opposition, addressed his constituents     at    Stittsvile,    Carleton
county, last week,   on the occasion of a meeting of the Conservative   association.     On   an   important  event  such   as   this,   it
might  have  been  expected  that
some definite policy  would have
been  outlined  by   the Conservative leader, to justify the  invitation he extended to his followers
to oust  the   Liberal   government
from power and place the conduct
of public  affairs  in   his "hands,
uand those of his   friends, including George E. Foster, of I. O. O.
F. fame.
Nothing of tbe sort occurred.
Mr. Borden contented himself
with an allusion to matters that
had been talked over in the house
last session, and the previous
one, until they were threadbare.
QThey were of very trivial importance compared to the elabora
whole Liberal party, or a reversal
of its policy.
If a few wrong acts creep into
the business pf a great government conducted upon certain
lines, what guarantee have the
people that the same, and worse
might not happen should the government of the country fall into
inexperienced hands. It must be
assumed that the same policy
would be followed, the same
methods of doing business would
obtain, and outside • the government itself, the affairs of the
country would be transacted by
the same officials.
It is asking too much of an intelligent people to   throw  over a
government   that; has    done   so
much, and instal in its place untrained and inexperienced men,
who have outlined no necessary
changes in the policy that should
govern this country, and who
have suggested no improved
methods of conducting public
business.
With  the   government  of this
country, Canadians,   as a people,
are   well   satisfied.    There   will
always   be,   under  a  democratic
form of government,   party lines
drawn, but the conduct of affairs
will  never   be   taken   from   one
party   and  intrusted   to   another
without good and sufficient cause.
There is every evidence  that the
people desire no  change  at  this
time,    and    until    something   is
formulated'-by'the-Coflservatives
to take the place of the  enlightened     administration     now     in
charge of public affairs,   it  may
confidently be expected that Canada  will  continue  her progress,
for the  people have an  abiding
faith, both in the possibilities of
the Dominion and the government
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
The people of Toronto, the
good, are bemoaning their heavy
losses in Cobalt mining stock. A
few years ago the same people
made what they were pleased to
call investments in B. C. mines.
They purchased cheap stock in
fake mining companies hoping
that they would be able to sell it
to their neighbors at enhanced
prices. When "wild catting'
became unpopular the good
people of Toronto found themselves with some beautifully

EDITORIAL NOTES
The through train from Spokane to Oroville on the Great
Northern railway is a decided
improvement ou the old service
and is much appreciated by the
travelling rniblic.
Hon. Richard McBride saw the
only Winston Churchill and Lord
Elgin. That's nothiug. Capili-
ano Joe got his picture in the Illustrated London News,
shortage  of  cash
a grudge
against
mining  ventures.
EVERYBODY SATISFIED
Hon. Richard 'McBride induced
Hon. Winston Churchill to eliminate the words "final and unalterable" from the wording of
the imperial legislation authorizing the federal parliament to
grant increased subsidies to the
provinces. The words were useless, because no legislation can
be final and unalterable under a
system of responsible government. Even admitting for the
sake of argument, that the
change was worth the expeuse of
Premier McBride's trip to England, the position of British   Co-
British  Columbia  mining  enterprises.
The same crowd boomed Cobal t
with a similar object in view.
By newspaper advertising and in
other ways, they created such a
boom that the stocks of Cobalt
companies were selliug on a basis
that aggregated the^ grand total
of $400,000,000. Now mining
should give a return on the money
invested of at least ten per cent
per annum or $40,000,000 on the
selliug price of Cobalt stock last
winter.- If Cobalt gives a return
of a tenth of this sum per annum
it is doing remarkably well for a
small mining canip.
Those, who knew anything
about mining kmeAv that the
Cobalt boom couldn't lasi. but
this didn't seem to influence the
people of, Toronto the good. They
were always hoping that they
could "sluff" their stock on their
neighbors at increased prices.
They didn't succeed in doing this
and 3. seco nd time 7th g. people of
Toronto lost their money because
they failed to realize that it
doesn't always pay to buy something because its cheap.
Cobalt is a great mining camp
dividends will be paid on riioney
invested in legitimate mining
just as dividends, are being paid
by mining enterprises in B. C.
today, notwithstanding the
kuocks of the disappointed Toronto stock jobbers.
The Daily province quotes Geo.
\"v7 Fowler, M. P., as an authority on matters relating to British.
Columbia. Not until the introduction by the Province of a style
of journalism peculiarly its own
would Geo. W. Fowler have been
quoted by- a western newspaper
as an authority on anything.

The British Columbia Gazette
is easily the best paying paper in
the province today; Everyone
has gone timber crazy, with the
result that the Gazette has page,
after page of advertisements for
timber licenses. Last month over
$100,000 was collected by the.
province from that source. It is
quite evident that the, boom has
struck B. C, and even the McBride government will have the
greatest possible difficulty in securing fur.ther deficits.

She says: ','My  little daughter Lydia (2 years old), was  troubled with eczema on her body and  face for six months. During that time  we tried several advertised remedies,  but the disease had too well a hold of  the child for these to overcome, and  finally'we were obliged to consult a  doctor. He treated the little one for  some time,1 and gave us prescriptions  tor various salves and medicines. We  tried.them, and tried them well;.but  the child got no better. "When she got  warm the itching was terrible, and  then the pain made her cry and be. very  restless. One day somebody strongly  advised me to try Zam-Buk. "We obtained a supply., and it was really  wonderful how the Zam-Buk cooled  the sores and gave almost instant relief. It stopped the itching, healed the  sores, and in six weeks from the first  commencement it, the child's skin, was  as smooth as when born.       ���  Zam-Buk is compounded from rich,  healing, herbal essences, and is an  ideal natural combination of power and  purity, suitable for the delicate skins  of infants.  For summer skin troubles, sore feet,  insect stings, chafing sores, bruises,  ulcers, abscesses, skin eruptions, scalp  sores, ZamrBuk is unequalled. It also  cures piles.

Government Street,  Phone 29  Greenwood, B. C.  ^Sjfv--  Km-  *��<_<-  c  #-  @**  0V-  =^-=Apparently-the ncxt-^Dominion-gen-  eral election is to be preceded by a  scandal campaign. Both sides are  lining up for the battle, not mom than  a year off, and the campaign is imminent. The Conservative members who  have already spoken have emphasised  the "rottenness" of the present rulers,  the "crookedness," the presence of  "graft," and so on. They seem to  argue that because Mr. Whitney won  in Ontario by such tactics, that Mr.  Borden will win by them in the Dominion. All their energies in the past  two j'ears have been concentrated on  discovering something that would  "smell" in the nostrils  of the  people.  Has Canada fallen so low that it is  only scandal whicn will make a change  in government? Have we got down to  the '.evel of New York, Philadelphia  and other United States cities? Is it  true that. Canada will never turn a  government out unless it can be proven  that its members and hangers on were  guiltv of boodling or graft? If so,  then it would be well to furl the na  tional Hag and- drape the national  monuments in black.  However, it was not thus that Sir  John Macdonald got back to power in  1S7S. He drafted for himself and his  party a new and definite policy; he won  on an aggressive and positive campaign. If the party of which he was  a member has not the ability to present  something definite along the line of a  forward movement in national development, then it must have fallen on  evil days. The weaknesses of the  present government, and undoubtedly  there are weaknesses such as usually  characterize governments long in  power, may be exposed and should be  criticised. Along side of such criticism  there should be something of promise  and hope. There must be a policy  which will appeal to the imagination  as well as to the judgment of the body  politic. It is to be hoped, for the good  of Canada and for the fair reputation  which she has won among the nations,  In the light of modern disclosures,  there are two grades .-of vitality���two  kinds of people. ��� One requires only,  the touch of a west wind on his cheek,  the fragrance that steals softly from  the wild flowers, the first faint glow of  the morning that crowns the far-off  hills with sapphire; the other kind���in  lavish and upholstered "caves" they  fan the fires that rise from the bogs of  appetite and passion. Away from the  glare of the footlights, away from their  Salome and the witchery of "the pie  girl," life to them is stupid and without  meaning. I repeat, there areijust two  levels of vitality'. And they are as far  removed from each other as is the east  from the west.  ONLY HALF TWINS  "Two Mormon boys went to school  for the first time out in Utah," relates  Congressman J.

Gka.ni> Fokks', June 18���The .adjourned inquiry into the death of Emma Don nan of this city, who died  shortly after being struck by a stick  thrown by her sister, was continued  today.  The attorney general recently pointed out that any prosecution  which was  undertaken must be by   the  city up to  the-time  of the commitment  for trial.  At last night's council meeting a resolution was passed authorizing   the city  solicitor to act for the city  and giving  him full power to nse  his  own   discretion in   the matter.    Here,  where the  circumstances' are   fully   known,   the  matter is regarded as an accident of a  distressing character, and the  Donnan  family,   in   general,   and  Miss   Bella  "Donnan, who threw tlie  stick,   in particular, have received   the deep sympathy of the community.  After reading the depositions and  after full consideration of the circumstances, Mr. Miller recommended the  dismissal of the case and Magistrate  Cochrane accordingly dismissed it.  ing your  next order for  don't  forget that  we carry the largest and most complete stock in the city.

CAUSE AND EFFECT  Having created favorable conditions,  the Liberal government expei ts much  of the people who have the opportunity  of exploiting the natural advantages  which exist in this country in such  variety and abundance. The people  have been quick to avail themselves of  these advantages, and the result is obvious on every hand. Manufacturers  have just completed the largest year  in the history of the Dominion; receipts from all sources passed the  highest mark last month. Prospects  are bright upon every hand. From the  west co me reports of large crop probabilities, and all things seem to be working together for good.  Under these.circumstances why would  the people exchange the advantages  they know they possess for the uncertainties of Conservative rule? Echo  answers, why?

He is only 27 years  old,   and he comes  of a family   that  distinguished   themselves  for lawlessness  and  murder a  few years   ago   in    British   Columbia.  His father and an  uncle both   suffered  the death penalty a score of years ago  for murder near Kamloops.    This fel--  low   is  strong,   and   it is said that in  every way   lie bears out the  meanness  that is portrayed in his face.    Already  he has nine  murders   to his  account.  He served time iu Walla Walla, and at  the expiration of his nine  years' sentence last September, he was met at the  gates by two deputies from Couconully  aiid was arrested on a charge of   horse  stealing.    He  evidently   succeeded in  evading   the charge.     He -has  served  three terms   in   the penitentiaries of  Idaho and "Washington.    There  is not  a person who does., not.shudder at the  very mention of McLain's name, as it  is a known fact that he thinks as little  of murdering   a   human   being as  he  doas of killing a fly.    In 19.04 he killed  Judge   and   Mrs.   Lewis   at   Altnyra,  Wash., and the year after he -murdered  ���'Broncho," one of the wealthiest Indi  ans in Idaho. In Montana he is wanted  for   train . robbery,  having held up  a  passenger  train  near Bear  mountain  and succeeded iu  getting away with a  quantity of booty.    In British Columbia he is wauted by the  authorities for  a dual murder   committed   across'the  border.���Canadian. o  NO WONDER SHE'S  surprised  She's delighted, too, to know  they i'.an start houseke*eping on  so small a sum by getting their  stuff at Gulley's.
