Barry Yuill returned late last week  from an extended trip to the Flathead  valley oil district, where the Canada  Western Oil Co., Ltd,, have a lease on  some very promising oil lands on the  Kish-e-neh-na creek. Mr. Yuill is a  member of the board of directors of  the company. He was well pleased  with the prospects for securing plenty  of good oil and brought home some  fine samples. He states there are  many seepages along the banks of the  creek ou their property. By moving  the soil at the edge of the creek a fine  film of oil may be seen to float over the  surface of the water. Most of the oil  lands of the district are held by license  from the government and most of  these are in more or leas of a tangle,  but Mr. Yuill's company hold theirs  by lease, and consequently they have  more complete control and are in a  more satisfactory condition to prosecute business,  The district has not yet been tapped  by any railway, but the proposed  Southeast Kootenay railway is expected to build . through the company's  oil fields. Private capital, however, is  making the district more accessible by  the building of a good wagon road  from, Pincher to Oil City,-Toward the  cost of this the citizens of Pincher  have put up the sum of $500. This  road will lead from Pincher to the oil  lands of the Canada Western Oil Cd.  The companies operating in the Flathead Valley are pressing the British  Columbia government to assist them  in building roads, but if public funds  are not forthcoming the roads will be  built anyway. Other companies operating have demonstrated the value of  the oil lands and the Rocky Mountain  Oil Co. have several welte and are  boring more. They have a small refinery at work and are supplying the  people of the surrounding district with  both both illuminating and lubricating  oils. The advent of the railway would  naturally hasten the development of  the district, but even with wagon roads"'  the work can be carried otTsuccessf ully7  The valley ia rich not only in oil,  but it is also a splendid ranching district.

The Flathead valley has before it a  splendid future full of bright promise,  THE CELEBRATION  Last Monday night a public meeting  was held in the city hall to discuss the  holding of a celebration on Labor  Day. A few were present representing  the business men aud the workmen of  the town. In the course of the discussion it was pretty well agreed that  Greenwood should celebrate -this year.  As it would likely be held on Labor  Day, the Miners' union evinced a  desire to have control of the affair,  and it was practically decided to let tne  union run it. A large committee was  appointed to go into the details and to  report to a public meeting on Friday  night. The committee haye held a  meeting and will report to the meeting  tonight that the matter has been left  in the hands of the Miners' union.  The union will meet Saturday night  and decide what course will be pursued.  POST OFFICE REPORT  The following is a report of the  Greenwood post office for the year ending June 30.

Hunter, who has been visiting  his brother in Fargo, N. D., returned  home Monday. Mr. Hunter is associated with his brother in the wholesale  business in Fargo and reports trade  brisk. He also found the crop prospects good and expects the farmers of  North Dakota will reap an abundant  harvest this year, He also visited St.  Paul and Minneapolis. These cities  are experiencing a remarkable growth  and are fast becoming one vast commercial center.  LESLIE-LAWSON.  A quiet wedding was celebrated at  the Presbyterian manse last Tuesday,  when John Leslie of Chesaw, was married to Miss Mary Jamison Lawson of  Alyth, Scotland. The ceremony was  performed by Rev. M. D. McKee. The  bride came direct from Scotland and  was married shortly after her arrival.  J. H. Hawthornthwaite, leader of the  provincial socialists, will hold a meeting in the Auditorium next Monday  night. i.  HIGH GRADE MINES  A Review of Some of the  Properties.  LOOKING   PROSPEROUS  Development Work Reveals Good Ore.  -Operations at the Crescent Fraction, Anaconda and Eureka.  Ted Mueller, local'manager far the  Chicago, B. C. Mining Co., is busy  at work with five men at the  Crescent Fraction and they are getting'  along like a happy family. The members of what Teddy calls "the best  gang of men in the country," are Joe  Bourke, foreman, M. Campbell, Mac  Mclsaacs and Henry MasBey. The  boys work in the shaft during the day,  and in order to keep things going all  the. time Tedd does the mucking at  night. Last Monday night a twenty  inch leader was struck.in the middle  of the shaft. The ore shows high in *  silver and also carries zinc and lead.  No assay of the new find has been  made, but it is believed to be richer  than anything heretofore found on the  claim, An ordinary sample, which  was assayed some time ago, went $101  in silver, while a selectedapiece went  $368. Mr. Mueller is delighted with  the prospects and feels confident that  the Crescent Fraction will soon develop into a high grade, large producing mine. Speaking of the conditions"  under which he is working, he said:  "We have been doing very consistent  work. We are straightening out the  bench, which was opened under previous management, in order to facilitate  'the "work of hoisting, and to bring us  to the hanging wall. We have been  peculiarly favored by nature. The  Crescent Fraction is in a unique formation which provides a. natural drainage, and as a consequence the shaft is  kept free from water. For a prospect  the Crescent Fraction looks Yery prom-,  ising.  "We are going to start on the Don  Pedro in a few weeks. Work will be  done on the tunnel aud later on another  tunnel will be driven from the southeast."  THB ANACONDA.  The Anaconda, .owned by James  McCreath and Charles Johnson, is being developed by the latter. Mr. Johnson is 'sinking a shaft which has  reached a depth of eighteen feet. Con-  siderable.surface_work_has_ been done  also. Both Mr. McCreath and Mr.  Johnson are very well pleased with  the prospects, The surface work has  revealed a four foot lead and silver-  lead ore going as high as sixty dollars  per ton has been taken out. This is  considered very good for having come  from so near the surface. Mr. Johnson  states that the surface showings are  better than anything in the vicinity of  the- Anaconda. The ore vein runs to  twelve inches wide. Work will be con?  tinned more vigorously than ever  before.  The Sunnyside and Rattler, near the  Auadouda, are also showing good indications, and the Future has turned out  or��* going over thirty dollars per ton in  gold.  THE KDKKKA.  Manager Herbert Hamlin of the  Greenwood-Eureka Mining company,  brought down a sack of ore last Tuesday afternoon which shows plenty of  h*I?h j. rade values. No assays have  been made, but the ore is undoubtedly  very.rich. The development" work is  going ahead most satisfactorily. No.  2 tunnel has penetrated a distance of  about forty feet, which gives at the  same time a depth of thirty feet. This  is a feature of work at the Eureka  that every foot added to the length of  the tunnel gives nearly a foot in added  depth. No 1 tunnel is in about seventy  feet on the vein and the face is in nine  inches of ledge well mineralized. Mr.  Hamlin says he expects to encounter a  body of ore very soon.

The report of the Greenwood  post office for the year ending-  June 30 has just been issued and  wil 1 befound-on-anotherpag-eflt  contains some interesting figures.  In tlie sale of; stamps there has  been an increase of 5404.84. This  is a good indication of increasing  business. The number of money  orders paid shows a decrease,of  11. This should indicate that  less business is being sent out  and -;hat more people are patronizing home industry. It is surprising, however, to find that the  amount of money sent out by  money order and postal note has  been increased by the remarkable  sum of $6,923.40. This is all  the more surprising when it  is remembered there was a  decrease iu the number sent  out. The amount sent out  by individuals is evident^* very  largely increased. The foreign  element is probably the most  numerous patrons of the money  order system. Large numbers of  them "habitually send money to  their families at home, either for  their support or for the purpose  of bringing them out to this  country.  From reliable sources it has  been learned that the amount of  money sent out for goods has  probably decreased, and that local  merchants are enjoying a fuller  share of local business than ever  before. This is gratifying to all  concerned in the welfare of Green-  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

CATCHING SMALL FISH  Complaints have been * heard  regarding the wanton waste of  small fish by fishermen who habitually frequent the stretches of  Boundary Creek. It appears that  some are prompted by greed for a  big catch to keep even the smallest of fish instead of returning  them to the stream to live and  grow and multiply their kind.  Such a policy of wasteful fishing  will sooner or later���probably  sooner���exhaust the resources of  Boundary creek and render it useless as a fishing stream. Such  methods of obtaining large  catches is contrary not only to the  laws of good sport and common  sense but is a direct violation of the  statutes of British Columbia. In  1904 an, act was passed to amend  the Game Protection (i.'Act of 1S9S  and in section 5 it provides, "it  Wal rbcfurilaw f u 1 ITinmf^iime~ifct  take catch, kill or have in possession trout of any kind "or species  under the size of six inches in  length.'-' It will be seen therefore that anyone who is guilty of  having in his possession trout of  less than six inches in length is  a criminal iu the eyes of the law  and the penalty provided by the  same act is a fine of not less than  twenty dollars aud not more than  fifty dollars for each offence or  imprisonment. The provincial  officers are the game wardens iu  their districts and theyu are empowered to act according io the  law set forth above.  It is not the taking of one, two  or even half a dozen small fish  that will deplete the stock in  Boundary creek but it is the waste  ful, extravagant catches that will  do the harm. No one who understands anything of the  nature of  the trout species and who unselfishly enjoys the sport they  annually afford, or wbo has any  respect for the laws of this province will continue to wantonly  destroy young fish upon which  defend the future suppy. A number of local devotees of the sport  have resently been advocating  the formation of a fishing club.  Such an organization could do  much towards keeping the Bound-  arj- creek well stocked with trout  and imforciug  the laws  against  catching small fish.  ROSSLAND CELEBRATION  Greenwood Band Pleases the People���  Foulds Bros- Win.  The miners' celebration in Rossland  last Monday arid Tuesday was a splendid success. A large number of people  were present from Greenwood, Nelson,  Trail, Grand Forks, Phoenix and  Nortliport. It was the eleventh anniversary of the fo'inditig- of the Ross-  laud Miners' union, and that org-aniza-  tion had charge of the arrangements.  The program of sports included baseball, lacrosse, toot races, rock drilling  contests "and many other attractions.  In the rock .(iriiling contest Foulds  brothers of Greenwood carried of. the  prize. There were four entries in the  drilling contest, and only the down  hjles were drilled. Foulds brothers of  Greenwood, in ten minutes, drilled 27  3-16 inches on the first day of the contest. On Tuesday the drilling was  continued. The time allotted to each  team was 10 minutes. Caesar Polesto  and John Post drilled 12J. inches.  Caesar Gillan and Bob Lennox exceeded that * distance by exactly one  inch. The Foulds brothers made 12j_  inches. The distance drilled in the tip-  holes was doubled and aridec- to the dis  Ja_-c*4jJiatJJxe^  in the downward drilling on Monday  This gave the Foulds brothers a total  of 52 3-16 inches, entitling - theni to  first money, and the Gillan-Leunox  team, with a total of 48,^ inches, received second money.  ���THK  BAND PI.AYKD.  The Greenwood band boys went over  on a one day engaifeitieiit.-but the people were so well pleased with the entertainment jm-eu that thev persuaded  the boys' to remain until the celebra  tion was ended. The members of the  band were all delightcl with the reception they got and are hearty in their  praise of the Rossland people. Of  their playing, the Kossland Miner  says:  '-Probably no other single feature of  the day's entertainment gave more  real enjoyment than did the music  furnished by the Greenwood concert  band and by the local band."

During- the past year more  interest lias been taken in zinc mines  in British Columbia on account of the  zincsmelter at Frank, Alberta. With  the many improvements.;in the magnetic separation of zinc from lead  ores, the future for zinc mining in this  province is much brighter, and zinc  will yet become one of the chief prod-f-  ucts of the mines containing- zinc and  lead. The next article will be on  ���'Copper and Its Ores."  Zin��, in the metallic condition, is a  comparatively recent discovery. It is  so volatile that il can only be obtained  by distillation. The varieties of uses  to. which , zinc is now applied arose  from a discovery which; was made in  regard to its malleability. When cold  it is very brittle, but when. t.is he_ted  to within a certain range of tempera j  ture, from.210 degrees to 310 degrees  1 F., .it'becomes-quite malleable and may  be rolled into thin sheets... Zinc, when  ,..,r       , , ---... -������-..������  It.often forms beds of considerable  magnitude, filling cavities in limestone  (just the same as galena). Sphalerite  is a Greek word -ind means   "treacher  galena, yielded no lead.  CALAMI!**]-*.  Calamine, is a silicate   of zinc,  oxide 67.5  per  cent, silica 2.S per  i in.the form.of ingots or slabs, receives  the trade mark of "spelter."  This metal owes its popularity to its  permanency, being impervious to the  effects"of the weather, and is used iri  the notable zinc industry called "galvanizing," that is, the coating of iron  with a layer of zinc to prevent from  rusting.   . -  It has a,bluish white-color and exhibits a rough crystalline fracture with  a specific gravity of 7-7.2. At ordinary temperatures it is" brittle 'and can  be pulverized."  --.  - CRNT.KGRADE.  It fuses at 412 degrees  and distils at  about   1,000   degrees   'centegrade.      If  zinc  is  heated  in   the  air  it burns to  ^2 z>"____���i_0_e_vyith a very._inteiise_..bl.uish���  white light.    It also is very  soluble in  dilute acids, dissolving with liberation  . ���*        i ���  of hydrogen.  '       'Zinc forms an important constituent  of many valuable alloys, such as brass,  .    babbitt and machinery alloys.  . Common hard brass contains 55 per  cent .inc and 45 per cent copper. Of  the many salts of zinc the zinc oxide  is the most important commercially. It  is prepared by igniting the precipitated  basic carbonate, and, as "zinc white,"  is employed as a stable white naint;  which is gradually displacing "white  lead" in the manufacture of paints.  zinc ores (Sphalerite). !  Ore zinc blende, or black  jack, as it  is  commonly  called,  is  the  principal  zinc ore of  British  Columbia.     It   is  brittle  with a  hardness   of 3.5 4  and  ���specific gravity of 3.9 4.1. It has a  resinous to adamantine luster, and its  common colors, yellow, brown and  black, also red, green to white, arid  when pure nearly colorless. Its streak,  when scratched,   is brownish   to  light  -yellow and white. Sphalerite is coni-j  posed of zinc 67  per cent,   sulphur.33  ���per cent, aud often contains iron and  manganese and sometimes cadmium,  mercury and rar :ly lead and tin. It  may contain either gold or silver. Its  chief distinguishing feature is its  restnous luster in all but the leep black  .varieties.    It is much  softer than gar-  . nel,  and  yields a   zinc  coating   when  , treated on charcoal with soda by blowpipe flame. This mineral occurs very  commonly   both   in    crystalline    and  ���, sedimentary  rocks   and   is frequently-  associated with galena, sometimes with  .   . chalcopyrite.  barite,   ilnorite,   riderite  f+jfj. and����is   common   in   nearly, ail   silver  zinc  cent  aud water 7.5 per cent. It has a hardness of ,4.5-5 and specific gravity of  3.4-3 5. The color is white, sometimes  with a delicate bluish or. ' greenish  shade, ;_so, yellowish to brown. Its  luster is. vitereous, sub-pearly, sometimes adamantine, This mineral is  almost infusible in blow pipe llame,  arid; on charcoal with soda it gives a  coating which is yellosv while hoc, and  white when cold - It also gelatinizes  with acids. It is usually found associated in veins or beds in stratified calcareous rocks _ ecompanyiyg the sulphides of zinc, iron and lead.  "'SMITHSONITR.  Smithsonite is a carbonate of zinc.  Zinc protoxide 64.8 per ceir, carbon  dioxide 35.2 per centi Its hardness is  5. and a specific gravity- of 4.3-4 45;  luster is vitreous, inclining to pearly,  the streak is white and color white;  often grayish, -.- greenish, '.brownish?  white, sometimes gt'eeti, blue and  brown. The carbonates of iron, manganese and cobalt are often present in  this mineral, giving it its various  colors. Smithsonite effervesces in  acids and this distinguishes it from  calatrune, which does not. This mineral is found in veins and beds, especially iri company with galena and  sphalerite, also with copper and iron  ores.  It generally occurs in calcareous  rocks and as a rule found with calamine  and sometimes with limonite. .It i-:  generally produced bv the action of  carbonated waters upon the blende.

Copper Street.   Next to the Victoria Hotel.  In a recent inquiry regarding the  merits of a certain member of the  engineering' profession, we were asked  what he had ever done to t.ive him a  reputation, or with what prominent-  enterprises he had been connected.  .The. inquiry revealed two things worth  noting, viz., the value of a reputation,  and the fact that many genuinely ca  pable engineers may remain in comparative obscurity for a part, if not  all, of theircareer.   v  The possession of a.reputation,while  valuable from almost all points of  view, is noi always bona tide evidence  of ability.; ii'ortniie has undoubtedly  let the mantle' of popular favor and  chance fall on some engineers, and  subsequent events have proved them  unworthy of the advantage thus gained  over their fellows. Pc sitioiij relationship, money or acquaintance have at  onetime or another made the oppor  .tunity "that is.necessary to gain a reputation, when the absence of these  would have -meant mediocre, success,  and certainly no prominence. That  the latter is sometimes mistak ?n for  success and ability has been evidenced  within the memory of most of us, and  although the prominent man may fail;  he nevertheless enjoys a certain con.  tinuance'of patronage which is the  result of popular favor.  The causes which contribute toward  keeping a good man in comparative  obscurity are varied and numerous.  One of these has formed the basis of  comment in these columns in a;former  issue. We have reference to the fact  that the projects with which an en-  gineeivmay be connected may be in the  nature of what we have called post  mortem examinations, the results Of  misguided   efforts   of   incompetent or  Solid Oak  ressers  ZrNCITK.

It is easily seen that  connection with such matters, although  rendering good service and receiving  satisfactory fees therefor, is not conducive to gaining --i reputation, at leist  in the popular acceptation of the term.  The most that one could hope to do if  constantly engaged in such work would  be to assure himself that his work had  been done so well that no one else had  ever successfully gainsaid his judgment. So it happens that the .mgineer  of reputation is not always the best,  and that a good engineer may remain  in the shadow, and apparently be surpassed by an inferior man.���Mining  Reporter.

The Duncan mine, on Wallace  mountain, West Fork, from which a  splendid specimen of silver ore was  taken recently, continues to yield good  results as the work progresses. The  ore now being taken out is all spotted  with native silver. Blansh-.rd Snyder,  one of the local men interested, returned last Saturday  from  a trip of  '-  inspection and reports that six men are  being kept at work sinking the winze  on which progress is being made at the  rate of two feet per day. The ore continues to hold as the win-'.e goes down,  averaging twelve inches wide. The  lead is from three to five feet wide and  has been traced a distance of 1,200 feet  in open cuts. There are apparently  very few breaks and the outlook is most'  encouraging.  THR SAU.V,-  The Sally is working five men under  the direction of William Boyle. They,  are now engaged in crosscutting from  the main tunnel. About 100 feet have  been opened up and it is the purpose  of the management to continue until  a 280 foot cut has been made. Surface  measurements indicate that the ledge  should be reached at that ooint. The  cut"is following the break and some  , very good ore has been taken out of  the drag.  The Carmi, which was being operated  by E. H. Thruston, has been closed  down.  In speaking of his trip, Mr. Snyder  made strong complaint regarding, the  condition of the road between West-  bridge and Beaverdel. He says they  are full of holes from 12 to 18 inches  deep, which render travel extremely  hard and even dangerous. Two men  have recently been put to work making  repairs, but they are utterly unable to  keep the' road. in decent shape, and  conditions, instead of being improved  are growing steadily worse.  l-QBDO  I  LAUNDRY  Will come back clean  and smell as sweet as  the flowers in May, if  you   send   them   to   tlie  GREENWOOD STEAM  LAUNDRY CO.

When  he does it he nearly always has the  charge trade in mind. One Philadelphia retailer used newspaper space a  whole year after beginning business  to print smoothly worded, pleasant  invitations to come in and look around.  A special offer, he thought, would for  ever bar him from the patronage of the  elect. But in a year he woke up, began  printing special offers daily, and in a  short time had just the sort of trade he  had been aiming at instead of hitting.  Along with it came the rest of the  public.  Retail advertising must have substance to attract. The substance of  good retail advertising is goods and  prices���not social amenities or literary  style. The thing that leads most retail  advertisers to be reserved and pseudo-  genteel iu advertising is, probably, an  indefinite fear of offending. A cut  price, a black figure, a strong advertising phrase���these, they imagine,  would forever drive away shoppers in  carriages. Hut this fear isn't well  founded. -The charge customer whose  name is on a store's books is likely lo  be so horrified by the black prices and  outrageous bargain offers of its competitor that she will go there to see if  he is lying. Wrong goods may offend  people. But it takes a lot of wrong  advertising to do it.���Printers' Ink.  THE  MAN BEHIND.  In almost every newspaper you pick  up you are pretty sure to find a lot of  gush about the man behind the counter  and the man behind the gun, the man  behind the buzzsaw and the man  behind the sun, the man behind the  times and the man behind his rents,  the man behind the plowshare and the  man behind the fence, the man behind  the whiskers and the man behind hia  fists, the man behind the kodak  and the man behind the bars,  and everything is entered on the  list. But they've skipped anothar  fellow, of whom nothing has been  said���the fellow who is even or a little  way ahead, who pays for what he gets,  whose bills are alwavs signed. He's a  blamed sight more important than the  man who is behind. All the editor*  and merchants and the whole commercial clan are indebted for existence to  this honest fellow man. He keeps us  all in business, and his town is never  dead,.and so we take off our hats to the  man who is ahead.���Judge.  MINERAL ACT  MINERAL ACT.  Certificate of Improvements.  NOTICE.

Copper Co.   will  shortly start to  issue dividends at the- rate of 10 cents  per share per month. B. C. copper  stock is worth about $5 for share, so at  that rate the dividends would run 24  per cent per year, which is rather too  good to be true. The local officials of  the company know7 nothing of the report, so there is probably no truth in  it.  FINED THIRTY  DOLLARS  Hazel-wood and Davidson are Found  Guilty of Violence.  The local police magistrate had a  busy time this week settling a rather  important case of assault and battery  on a charge laid by two Chinman, Lou  Toy and Lou Dou against William  Davids-oil and Harry Hazelwood of  Phoeuix. The accused parties visited  Grehn wood a we2k ago last Thursday  night and wound up a night's fun by  visiting the laundry run by the plaintiffs about 4:30 'Friday morning. , Here  a scrap occurred which enr*.ed in the  two chinamen receiving, more or less  bodily injury, one of them showing on  his face the marks of the encounter.  The Phoenix men also suffered, Davidson especially for he: sustained a broken rib, several bruises on the body and  legs and a battered foot. After the  fracas the men returned to Phoeuix  where they were arrested on Friday  and brought to Greenwood and landed  in the police station. On Saturday the  case came up arid was adjourned till  Monday the prisoners being given bail  at $300 each. When, the case was resumed on Monday little could be done  for want of a Chinese interpeter After  proceeding as far as possible adjournment was again.made till Wednesday  night at 7.30 . o'clock, at that sitting  part of the evidence was taken and on  Thursday morning court met again at  9 o'clock and after a three hour session  the case was concluded. The prisoners  were found guilty of assault and battery and fined $30 each. J.P. McLeod  "f or pi ainTff sT A7M7W h'Teli**" e~f or^chF  fendants  whom he would not say. It was learned, however, that the parties with  whom negotiations have been carried  on are apparently independent of both  the railway companies most directly  interested. From other sources it was  learned that Mr. Smailes is at the coast  and that he is not likely to return for  some ten days.- It is understood that  his return will be an evidence of an  adjustment of the matter.  Speaking of the attitvde of the New  York financial world toward British  Columbia, Mr. Mcintosh said: "Noone  knows the situation hete better than do  the Wall Street nabobs of finance.  They have reports on this country and  know just what is being done. It  would be an easy matter to interest  New York capital in any good B. C.  proposition."

Conveniently situated so that employes of smelter will find a first-class  place to room and board.'  MRS. STANTON  PROPRIETRESS.  B. C*' Copper Co. Secures Option on  Star and Washington.  The B.-.C Copper Co., Ltd., have secured an eighteen month working bond  on the Lone Star and Washington  group of claims in White's camp, just  south of the boundary line. Work  will be commenced at once under the  supervision of Henry Johnson. The  mine is equipped with power plant  and the necessary buildings to carry  on the work. The Great Northern runs  within four miles of the property and  the ore can thus be handled to reasonable advantage. Considerable work  was done some years ago, but owing  to the difficulties encountered it was  abandoned. The operations, however,  disclosed considerable bodies of copper  ore, and under the control of the new-  bondholders will now be thoroughly  prospected.  MIDWAY & VERNON  P. Burns & Co. Lose Valuable Herd of  Beef Steers.  "A bunch of 16 beef steers suddenly  disappeared last week from the grazing  grounds of P. Burns & Co., near their  slaughter house across the national  boundary line, several miles north of  Molson,"says the Molson Independent.  "Everything in connection with the  disappearance of the steers points to a  clear case of cattle hustling. One night  last week two different parties report  having met at midnight cowboys driving a band of cattle toward the B. C.  interior, but further than that no trace  of the alleged cattle th'eves or the  cattle themselves have been found. A  dozen of the steers belonged to J. A.  Jackson, Burns' local manager. Mr.  Jackson returned Wednesday from a  trip to Greenwood with a bunch of  sheep and at once instituted a search  for the missing cattle.  "Some .miscreant, evidently bent  more on deviltry than pelf, entered the.  camp of P. Burns & Co. last Monday  night while all hands were asleep, and  stole the singletrees from every blessed  .wazon there."  Inquiry was made at the local headquarters for Burns & Co.and theabove  report verified. The lost cattle were  .valued^at^fSOO^and^jvere^intended^to  supply -neat for the railway camps on  the V., V. & E. Harry Draper of  ,Spokane,with his famous bloodhounds,  "Sherlock and Holmes." has been engaged to track the cattle thieves, but  so far no news has been received at  the local office as to what success is  being attained. The local office had  not heard of the  singletree escapade.  BAND  CONCERT  ��#^����4tf#'����<'##��tf������*0����'#��������-i!f��*;  B  B  B-.

When seen by the Times  he expressed himself as being satisfied  with the result of the negotiations so  fat as they had gone.

SPOKANE FAIR  Motorcycle racing is a new feature  which will be introduced at the Spokane Interstate fair ttiis year. This is  one of the most exciting and often one  of the most dangerous of races. These  bicycles, run bv gasoline,' are able to  make much higher speed on a half mile  tra* k than automobiles can do. They  go round the fence at a terrific pace  am if any accident occurs, the rider  is in danger of being instantly killed.  There were several intensely exciting  motorcycle races'at the fair grounds in  June during the meeting of the Northwest Athletic Association. One man  made a mile in 1:34 minutes, which is  exceedingly fast for a half mile track!  Another man narrowly escaped injury  -H.wa s^cro wded,=o n to_.he^outec=:f ence.-  but he was going so rapidly that his  wheel actually mounted the fence and  he was leaning in so far, in making the  curve, that he did ��not come.tn contact  with the fence himself aud escaped injury.  Moter cycling in this part of the  country is newer, than aulomobiling  and the racing is more exciting and  more dangerous, but already a number  of owners of machines in Spokane are  inquiring about the race, aud probably ]  vvill enter. ;  HUMMINGBIRD GROUP  The diamond drilling on the Hum  mingbird group continues with g'atify-  ing results.
