FRIDAY   JANUARY 11, IQ07.-  No. 19  fSJ  1(1  I  Greenwood's ex-M. P. P. Has Been Selected  to. Fill the County Court Vacancy X A. *%  J; R. Brown, the ex-member for  Green wood in the Provincial house,  has been appointed to the county court  judgeship, to fill the vacancy created  by the appointment of Judge Clements  to the supreme court of B. C. It is  generally conceded that no better selection could have been made, and it is  a matter of congratulation that the  position has been allotted to one who  possesses in bo marked a degree the  qualifications necessary in the fulfillment of the duties the office entails.  Judge Brown, as he will hereafter be  known, and his estimable lady, are receiving the heartiest congratulations  from their numerous friends'. While  many regret his removal from the  sphere of active political life, all unite  .with the Times in wishing him a long  and successful career in the high position he is so eminently qualified to  adorn.  John Robert Brown, the newly appointed judge, waa born near Sarnia,  Lambton county, of Irish and Scotch  parentage, February 19, 1863. He was  educated   in: the   common   and   hicjh  schools of Sarnia, and studied law in  the office of James F. Lister, who for  many years represented WestLambton  in the Dominion parliament, and who  subsequently became judge of the  court of appeals, Toronto. He completed his law studies in the office of  Frank Denton, K. C, Toronto, and  was colled to the Ontario bar in the  spring of 1897.  After practicing his profession for a  year in Sarnia, he came to B. C,where  he was called to the bar of British Columbia in April. 1899, and has since  then practiced his profession in Greenwood.  Since coming to Greenwood he has  taken an active part in politics and  carried the Greenwood riding for the  Liberals in the election of 1903. During the three sessions of the present  house he took a most active part in all  its proceedings, and his elevation to  the bench will be a distinct loss to the  fighting force of the Liberal party in  B.C.       ' ;. 7-      -    :  _','  A PROSPEROUS GREENWOODITE  The Times notes with   pleasure   the  announcement by the Calgary papers  of the promotion of a. strong investment company in Calgary the man a sting director of which is J. M. Humphrey, a former well known resident of  Greenwood. J. M. was for a long time  a valued member of P. Burns & Co.'s  office staff. Since his transfer to the  Calgary offices of the company, some  three years ago, he has given considerable attention to real estate matters, in  which he has been so uniformly successful th���t he has become one of the  principals in one of Calgary's biggest  real estate firms. That J. M. has retained his habit of making and keeping friends ia demonstrated by the  following from a Calgary exchange:  "P. Burns is losing all his good men.  John Humphrey of the Pioneer market,  resigned the first of the year to embark  in the real estate business. John's  fellow employes remembered him most  handsomely in the shape of a fur coat  and hat, and the young man is wearing  a happy smile.  "I hear there is a young lady in the  case..

Stock  Taking  Safe  fc*SOMKU��.J-'-,*-1-'"l**--,u^^  SEE   HAND   BILLS   FOR  PARTICULARS  was  There never was much doubt regard  irijr'the richness of Greenwood's high  j^rade belt and every chapter of the  history of the Providence mine is an  eloquent tribute to its permanency  From the days when William Fowler  with little capital but Scottish grit and  keeu knowledge of a good thing in  mineral when he saw it, began to develop this property uutil last evening  when the ProvidenceMiuingcompanv,  by the unanimous consent of its shareholders increased its capitalization to  $2,000,000. Every step in the develop  ment of this now famous mine completely refutes the statement that  Greenwood is only a low grade camp.  Nature in its wisdom has placed within these belts of low grade copper are  which have astonished the copper  world a zone of high grade silver-gold  ore that lifts Greenwood into a high  grade camp as well. And it is no  geological freak containing nothing  but pockets of rich ore that are often  an expensive temptation to the investor. Systematic development has demonstrated that here we have well  defined veins whose permancy can be  no longer doubted.  It is now over four years since the  Providence Mining Company was  organised with a modest capital of  5200,000. But the mine had a history  previous to thatdate. The story of  how William Fowler took charge of  the,Providence in the days when the  hurricane deck of a cayuse was the  only means of transportation, packed  ore to Marcus, 65 miles, ^distant, and  thence-by rail. to-Tacoma, how even  Providence ore could not stand . such a  transportation handicap, how he abandoned the mine and afterwards returned after the railway was built,  and finally cleaned up $50,000 by a sale  to local people, has often been told in  these columns. The local purchasers  were afterwards joined' by Mark F.  Madden, representing himself and  other Chicago capitalis :s, who, like  most Chicagoans, knew a good thing  when they saw it.  Since the organization of the company the Providence has been a regular dividend payer; in fact,  was  prac  tically the first dividend payer in the  camp Over 2400,000 has been taken  fiom the mine, and last year the value  of tne ore extracted was 5*131,000, notwithstanding the fact that for eight  months of'the year, no ore waa shipped  further than that necessary to pay for  development work The shaft was  sunk in oro from the 400 to the 600 foot  level; drift, and crosscuts were run  and a fully equipped plant waa installed. The large amount of development has demonstrated that the veins  retain their values and that they run  to great depths.  All this work has been done from  the proceeds of the sale of ore extracted from the mine, and not from  the sale of stock. There is no stock  for sale by the company. The Chicago  end have from time tb time purchased  the interests of several of the local  people and the majority of the stock Ib  held today by. a few Chicago investors.  Were the shipments of the Providence  limited to the present basis,, the net  annual profit would easily be $100,000  annually. That amount is 5 per cent  on a capitalization of $2,000,000, and the  Chicago investor likes to capitalize the  earning power of his money at a  proper proportion. An extraordinary  general meeting of the shareholders of  the company was held in Greenwood  last evening; a resolution was passed  authorizing the increase of the capital  stock to this amount, and the Providence mine takes its place among1 the  "Big uns."  Two million dollars is a big sum of  mney, b.*t,ori the other hand, nothing  is capitalized' in Cobalt for less than  two million, and the stock ��� is often  placed on the market at three times its  par value. There are rich mines in  Cobalt, but th.re are few more promising than the Providence. In comparison to some Cobalt flotations of today,  the new capitalization of the Providence mine is very modest indeed. In  addition, it has behind it the inct that  after four years of development, it is  a permanent shipping mine and a regular dividend payer, which, after all,  are the best tests of the value of a  mine. -  Thrown   at  the  Old   Parties on Wednesday  Evening in the Auditorium by the Socialists  Th<��   first   meeting, of  the election , brio g, a bout whentheysecure the reina  campaign was held Wednesday evening  in the Auditorium building in the interests of the Sodialist candidate.  Frank Steele occupied the chair, and  with him on the platform were Edgar  Dynes, Socialist candidate; E. G. Warren, representing the Conservatives,  and G. R Naden, the Liberal standard  bearer, as well as John Mclntiis, who  is the Socialist candidate for the Grand  Forks riding, and 'Benjamin Wilson,  the wind jammer from California, who  is here to instruct the poor benighted  Canadian how to vote.  The socialist candidate opened the  ball by a somewhat lengthy address,  in which the "old parties" came in for  the regulardose generally dealt out on  such occasions, accompanied by the  usual profusion of prophecies as to the  glorious   results   that    Socialists  will  of povyer.  His services to the public in exposing  the methods of the P. Burns Co. were  dwelt upon at great length, and the  policy outlined which he would endeavor to follow if elected tothe house.  G. R. Naden and E. G. Warren, who  will each, at a meeting of their own,  outline their respective policies, made  short addresses, after which Mr.Wilson  took the floor, and for the remainder of  the evening entertained the audience  in his own unique way.  In the near future meetings will be  held by both Liberal and Conservative  parties in which Socialist speakers will  be invited lo attend, so that the public  will have ample opportunity to hear  the questions at issue thoroughly discussed, something which was entirely  overlooked at the meeting on Wednesday night.  !sgTO3**:w.!��\y..'��.'^.ww.w^^  SHK.-5KWJ  ra?ra?6CTC?.)y.*o��u*gggretKa,'c.:)��>y..'CT.v^^  Womens' Goods.

R. -Naden deserves well  from the people of Greenwood.  To him is largely due the credit  for rescuing the city from financial bankruptcy, iu which position it was left by some of the  men who now find more congeniality in the Conservative party,  and are shouting for Warren  Greenwood today is one of UK-  best governed cities in the province, and the soundest financially.  A man who made a good mayor  will make a good representative.  All it requires is brains, .honest\  and determination. Geo. R.  Naden is rich in all these. He is  the ideal candidate whom one can  work for and shout for, full of  confidence that he will always  make good.  W. W. B. McINNES.  ,. Conservatives dp not like W. W.  B. Mclnn.es' re-entry into pro-  yincial. politics, and consequently  he is now enjoying the torrents  of abuse which are being daily  poured upon him by the frantic  . apologists of the McBride government,  '������'.'. Mr. Mclnnes went to the Yukon  and  made  good.     The  Yukon,  : like South Africa, has been aptly  dubbed the graveyard of reputations, but Mr. Mclnnes came out  without the slightest blemish on  7~his record. He demonstrated  what   an   exceedingly  able and  0 tactful man can do when put to  th.* test. Mr. Mclnnis is easily  the best platform speaker iri Can-  : ada; in addition he is blessed  with a personality which wins  .votes.  W. W. B. Mclnnes is a splendid  .fighting lieutenant for J. A. Macdonald. Together they make the  "strongest fighting team which  has ever  appeared in provincial  ,   politics.    SITUATION IN GREENWOOD  in the general provincial elections  of 1903, with the e_*Cu>;.U7- that  in the coming elections the Conservatives have a much weaker  candidate than they then had.  Ou February 2 Mr." Naden will  poll a few more votes than did  Mr. Brown in 1903, and E. G.  Warren will poll a few less votes  than'did-Dr. Spankie. There has  been no serious turn over of public opinion aud new comers and  registered voters are about equal  in number to those who have left  the district.  But the suggestion that the  Conservative is the stronger candidate is made for a purpose.  The majority of those who  are ' responsible for Mr, Warren's nomination c"fii see nothing, wrong in the unhory alliance between McBride and the  Socialists for the last three years.  They much rather see the red  flag of anarchy flying over the  capitol buildings at Victoria than  have a sane and'sound Liberal  government installed in power.  They are determined to perpetuate the alliance between Conservatives and Socialists. Thev do  not expect to win themselves but  they hope by circulating bold  aud impossible statements to  stampede sufficient votes from  Geo. R. Naden to make possible the election of a Socialist iu the Greenwood riding.  The trick is too transparent,  however, to deceive the intelligent elector.  The issue in this campaign  is the same as in 1903. Those  who want the rich and prosperous riding of Greenwood to  be forever cursed by the election of a revolutionary Socialist  will cast their votes for E. G.  Warren, those who want to prevent, such a disaster will vote for  Geo. R. Naden,  EVASIVE TACTICS.  7 The statement that E. G. Warren will poll more votes than Geo.  R. Naden inithe Greenwood elect-  eral district is absurd. The position in reference to the Liberal  and Conservative parties in this  riding is about the same as it was  Viewed from the poiut of numbers in attendance, the meeting  of Weduesday night in the interests of the Socialist candidate was  a success.  Viewed from any other standpoint it was an absolute failure.  It is safe to assume that the majority of those present at the  meeting went there in hopes of  hearing an intelligent criticism of  the political parties that Socialism seeks to demolish, and a justification of the attitude of the  Socialistic leader in the Provincial house on the various matters  of prominence that have occupied  public atteution during the life  of the legislature just dissolved,  especially those that related more  particularly to this and adjoining  ridings.  It is plainly apparent tbat the  Socialist candidate for Greenwood  is either painfully ignorant of  the McBride-Ha wtboruthwaite  record, or else, realizing his utter  inability to either defend or justify them, he seeks to evade the  issue by swamping  his  audience  Shape Expression  HE beauty of a violin lies  iu its lines.

Instead of. resurrecting a dead  meat scandal, will he explain to  us why Hawthornthwaite, his  leader, who so loves the poor  workiugman, outdid even Tatlow  iu his efforts to prevent the Midway & Vernon railway construction, thus working a hardship on  200 or more employees whose  wages are still unpaid?  Will he explain why the Socialist leader, has steadfastly supported aud kept in power a"gov-  ernmeut who absolutely refuses  to attempt collection of taxes  from the C. P. R. and Heinze to  the extent of hundreds of thousands of dollars, but who takes  care to tax to the limit every other  industry and individual in the  province?  Can he explain Mr. Hawthorn-  thwaite's support to the bill granting upwards of a million acres of  land to the C. P. R. that they  were no more entitled to than the  Socialist candidate himself? Can  he show us the relationship betweeu Socialism and Hawthorn-  thvvaite's support' of the Kaien  Island deal, or the score or more  instances where Hawthorn-  thwaite's acts and professions  have been as far apart as the  poles? Regarding these and  other matters of a similar nature,  practically nothing was said,at  at the Wednesday night meeting.  Instead, tbe audience was treated  to dese of twaddle iu which Germany, New Zealand and Burns=&  Cov^wel-T'^ol^icuous-features.  This election is not being held to  determine whether P. Burns &  Co. handles good meat or bad, or  whether Germany or New Zealand is farthest advanced in the  path of Socialism.  These may be weighty matters,  but they have nothing to do with  the question at issue, which is  simply this: Whether the destinies of this province are to be controlled by a combination of ranting incompetents whose sole object appears to be that of squandering the public domain, or that  there be placed in control of  affairs men of proved  integrity  and busines* ability, who will give to  B.

JOOOOOOOOOOOOO  Premier McBride never commanded the confidence of the people of British Columbia. He is  an accident resulting from the  peculiar topsy turvey condition of  provincial politics in previous  years. When the Prior government was defeated, largely  through, the effective work of  John Oliver and Smith Curtis,  and.,other Liberal members of the  legislature, Mr. McBride, who  happened to be nominally leader  of the opposition at that, time,  was called upon to form a government. He immediately deserted fhe men who were responsible for his reaching a high position, and organized what he was  pleased to call the first Conservative government in British Columbia. Of -mediocre ability,  without any genius "or statesmanship., he never did possess the  confidence of his bwn party, much  less that of the people of the  province. Notwithstanding the  fact that he was in power, and  that the Liberals were disorganized1 and without a leader,* he did  not come back with a majority in  the elections of 19037 He then,-]  without any regard' for the traditions of his party, or the repu-]  tation of the province, made an  alliance with the Socialists, and  by pandering to then, and meekly  answering to the lash of the Canadian Pacific railway he has been  able to keep himself in power  since then.  This could not be done without  a sacrifice of everything that  would command the respect and  confidence of a discerning������'electorate. - The cold-blooded pilfering of 800.000 acres of the peoples' domain in the interests of a"  railway corporation, the refusal  to tax the land grants of the C.  P. R., the disreputable transactions with a band of adventurers  (male and female), the contemptible knocking of the Midway &  Vernon deal, and the generous  potlatch of a large sum of money  to prosperous farmers a.;d specu-  1 a tors in hisow n consti mi ency of  Dewdney, who refused io~meeT  their honest obligations, make up  a record characteristic of the man  and the debasing alliances which  he formed.  In the meantime, the Liberals  have become thoroughly organized with a strong leader who has  seriously applied himself to matters affecting the best interests of  the province. Mr. McBride has  done nothing since 1903 to  strengthen him with the people  of the province. He was a weak  man then, he is a much weaker  man now. He and his government are doomed to defeat on  February 2nd. A decisive defeat  is not without its compensations.  It will be a good thing for the  province and eventually a good  thing for the Conservative party.

To relieve a cough or break up a cold  in twenty-four hours, the following-  simple formula, the ingredients of  whioh can be obtained of any good  prescription druggist at small cost, is  all that will be required: Virgin Oil  of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; Glycer-  inr, two ounces; g-ood Whisky, a half  pint.

Won't.: Bob Green please  contribute his .quota to the political excitement by telling us what  he resigned for just before the  election. And then, too, Chas.  Wilson has never told us why he  left the government.  The blatant' spellbinder from  California is again in Greenwood  teaching the. free-born British  subjects how they should mark  their ballots. Those who would  like; to see the red flag of  anarchy substituted for the Union  Jack would.'probably sooner, get  their instructions from California  or Colorado.  Political treachery never  pays.

The; Socialist representation in the', next parliament will  be fewer, in numbers than at present.       ;  For the benefit of, his imaginative Conservative friends, Duncan Ross;, M.

Party ties are mighty strong  after all when Chas. A. Semlin,  after 35 years of strenuous political life fighting those who are  now merged into the Conservative  party, will leave his beautiful  ranch in order to do battle in a  Liberal stronghold simply because he is^r Conservative " Ore  cannot but. admire his fightiug  qualities even if he doe's lack  discretion.  Ernest Miller has received  the Conservative nomination in  Grand Forks. The training,  which he received while a member  of the board' of license commis:  siouers, which was under the personal direction . and control of  Geo. A. Fraser, should eminently  fit him for the duties of representative of this very important  district. There may, of course;  be some people in Grand Forks  who are -firmly convinced, that  those manifestations of statesmanship during his brief career  as a license'commissioner are the  very strongest possible reasons  why Ernest Miller should be left  at home, but even these hypercritical people must admit that whatever else may.be said of the training ih the Geo. A. Fraser school,  it was at least thorough.  Bob Green is too busy to remain in the McBride government,  but not too busy to carry the sack  to the various constituencies  throughout the province. Associated with him in this important  work is one Mr. Gass, who acquired his early training in the  Northwest territories, and who is  closely identified\with J. S. Den-:  nis, the C. P-.'.l.. .land commissioner, he who directs the. forces  at Victoria whenever a fresh  block of land or some other concession is wanted by. the C. P. R.  It is scarcely complimentary to  Bob Green th.at Mr. Gass should  be selected to accompany him on  his pilgrirnage. among the. faith?  ful, but if he were considered too  wicked to remain in the highly  respectable McBride government  dufihgan election campaign it is  not surprising that the masters of  the situation should exercise ordinary business precautions.  PAY ORE COLUMN  There are four disgruntled  Liberals in Victoria. One is disgruntled because he couldn't get  a county court judgship for a  partner he wished to get rid of;  another is disgruntled because he  couldn't get a county court judg-  ship for himself; a third is disgruntled because a rival firm got  a Dominion government contract,  and the fourth is disgruntled be-  cf^��_e���well, because \he is dis-  '> untied. The Colonist tells the  sad, sad story on its front page.  The fact that there are four dis  gruntled Liberals in Victoria is  bound to become historical, but  we can find consolation in the  fact that there were also three  tailor* of Tooley street.

Considering fie loca'ity of the property, with JJhe Providence on one side  and the Strathmore on the other, there  is every reason to believe that the-Fre-  mont, with judicious development will,  within a year or so, rival either of its  neighbors as a produce- of high gr.tde  ore.

The mill was a small  portable one, placed there by Mr.  Powers to handle the lumber required by the Kettle River Irrigated Lands Co. in the conatruc-  tion of their flume across Rock  creek. The loss was not heavy,  as much of the machinery is but  slightly damaged and very little  of the lumber or logs being destroyed. Hew the fire originated  is not known. It is likely the  mill will be rebuilt at once as  there will probably be a heavy  demand for lumber in that locality during the coming spring.  Wednesday afternoon Greenwood suffered from an epidemic  of runaway teams. The Hunter-  Kendrick team started the business by taking French leave, and  in passing down Copper street  adjacent to the Greenwood Liquor  Co. store, started their delivery  into action, as well as the handsome team owned by the Dominion Copper Co., of Boundary  Falls. The latter was the only  outfit that suffered. Contact with  an electric light lole effectually  snubbed them, breaking the sleigh  pole and otherwise damaging the  rig. The other rigs were uninjured, the teams being caught  without much difficulty.  Dr. Simmons, dentist, Phone 96  Wallace-Miller Block, open evenings.

Whalen had  been down from the mine in the  afternoon, and left a fire in the  stove on re turning home, and it  is supposed that a spark from the  stove did the rest. The building  was a total loss, as the fire had  completely gutted it before the  alarm was turned in.  C. V. Semered, well known in  Greenwood in the old days, is  registered at the Windsor. Mr.  Semered left here five years ago,  locating in Edmonton, which was  then on the eve of its great boom,  where he has prospered exceedingly. Since establishing himself in Edmonton, he has not  confined himself to any particular business, - but has been in a  number- of enterprises, nearly all  of a profitable nature. At the  present time real estate is engaging his attention, his partner in  the business being I. L. Smith,  who formerly conducted a grocery  business on Copper street near  the Imperial hotel. Mr. Semered,  who is an enthusiastic advocate  of the Edmonton district, was  more than surprised at the evidences of substantial progress  made in Greenwood during his  absence, and is likety to make  heavy investments here before  returning home.  The recent cold snap brings  back memories of the winter, of  1898-99, this being, perhaps, the  very coldest weather experienced  in the Boundary district since  that time. There is as much  difference in of the readings of  the various thermometers around  town as there is in the prophecies  of the different political parties  as to who will- represent Greenwood in the next legislature; but  to strike a fair average the glass  must have registered something  near 20 below zero. Several citizens have cause to regret it on  account of demoralized water  pipes, while the fast diminishing  wood pile is a source of concern  to even the most optimistic. But  '��� 'tis an ill wind that blows nobody good;" The woodmen and  the plumbers wear a broad and  con ten ted smile, and the icemen  are laying aside blocks of clear,  frozen aqua, that would do justice  to Winnipeg. It is fortunate that  an extra heavy fall of snow has  protected the water mains, as  without it serious damage would  inevitably have occurred.  ORE SHORTAGE  The C. P. R. has intimated to the  B. C. Copper company that for some  time to come the railway will be unable  to deliver ore at the smelter ��� from any  point except the Mother Lode, not even  from the Emma mine at Deuoro will.  ore be moved. A similar notice has  been received from the Oreat Northern  hvregardtotqe product of^theTNapol--  eon mine at Marcus. As the ore from  the latter property is of special value  as a flux, it will be a difficult matter to  keep the smelter in operation, thouerh  this will be attempted by utilizing the  heavy sulphide ores on the 400 foot  level of the Mother Lode mine. No  reason for the railways action is eivenj  but it is understood that all available  rolling stock is being- utilized to rush  soal to the various points in the North-  west, where a fuel famine exists.  ODD FELLOWS SUFFER  Local Odd Fellows will hear with regret of the serious loss sustained by  the Vernon lodge, last Wednesday  night, their commodious Kail and lodge  room being totally destroyed by fire.  It is not known how the fire originated, but as the building was beitig  heated for an entertainment by Mc-  Ewen, the magician, it is assumed that  some part of the heating apparatus  gave out, and coming in contact with  the wood work, caused the conflagration.  The fire had gained such headway  before being discovered that little  effort was made to save fhe building,  the firemen directing rheir efforts to  prevent adjoining stru.*.ture8 from falling a prty to the flames. With the  exception of the piano, nearly everything in the hall, including the regalias of- the different societies meeting  there, was destroyed. The loss on  buildings and equipments will reach  $6,000, while the regalia of the different  societies is valued at S3.000 more. In-  suranceon tne building amounted to  $3,000, with $1,0< 0 on the regalias.  The Odd Fellows will at once rebuild  and have already secured a good siite  adjacent to tne Vernon News uilding,  temporary quarter*, having been est. b-  lished in the Ellison warehouse.  h  5   I  \V--  g IN THE HANDS OF AN INEXPERIENC-  H ED PERSON.

The provincial election has so absorbed public attention that little or  nothing has been heard of the civic  elections which are now almost due,  and from all appearances Mr. H. Bunting is likely to occupy the mayor's  chair at the next council without hav  ing to conduct a campaign for the position. It is, perhaps, just as well that  this should be the case, as it would be  hard to find a candidate that could successfully oppose him, or one that would  more acceptably fill the position if  elected. Mr. Bunting is a enreful,  conservative business man, well versed  in nearly all the questions- that the  council will have to deal with for the  ensuing year, and his considerable experience on the board of aldermen lias  in every way fitted him for the more  important office of mayor.  It is possible there may be a contest  for seats on the aldermanic board, but  so far no new candidates have announced their intention of taking the  stump.  Mrs. T. P. O'Connor, a Loncloi** Lady |  of Wide Renown, .Discusses  the Sterner Sex.  In an  article on  Men's Dress, Mrs.  Bessie O'Connor, wife of T. P. O'Con  nor, M. P., says that   "Some   men   -".re  vain enough  to   imagine  that   neither  men nor women pay any   attention to  the clothes of a man. There never was  a greater mistake  thari  this.    Surely  women,   who   are  constantly studying  the cut,   the  linos   and  thi? fashion   of!  their own clothes, u-.cossa.rily   observe* j  the cut and the fashion of men's habil  ments.  "It was rather the custom of man to  associate the idea of a well-dressed man  with an empty fop," she forcibly writes.  "but the modern man has au eye for  beauty and appropriateness of at'.ire.  combined with great cleverness in ot Indirections."  The Semi-ready idea in men's dross  permits tbe wearer to see a suit as it  will look when he w*?ars it. He don.  it at the Semi n ariy Wardrobe just a-  it stands ready to firrsh . up. Tailored  superbly, designed in a smp-irt and  cultured style, the fabrics arc Hie besi  from Ungland's mills. The modern  man knows that misfits and c!ie<i|>  materials are not economical, for one's  success in both social and business life  depends upon good tailoring-. There is  a Semi-ready tailoring shop in nearly  all the chief towns of Canada.  P. W. George & Co. vvill be pl**ns>��d  to show you how what "Semi-ready.'*  tailoring profits the wearer.  HAD SLUGGISH LIVEJR AND  INDIGESTION  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS^  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at Grand  Forks, makes the following detailed  report of the customs receipts at the  various sub-customs offices, as reported  to the chief office in this city, for the  month of December:  Grand Forks........ 51,537 13  Greenwood  2,628 19  Phoenix     988 36  Midway      341 14  Sidley      180 CO  Cascade      120 38  Carson      116 13  Keremeos       21 34  Osoyoos        14 82  Bileans  Effected a Complete   Cure.  The liver rules the body. Bileans  rules the liver. "A sluggish liver in  my case led to constipation and indigestion," says Mrs. Frances Greene,  of Earl street, Kingston, Ont. "I felt  dull and sleepy,' had no energy whatever for work, and now and again I  had a bad attack of biliousness. The  food I ate seemed to He heavy on my  stomach aud did me no good. I had  wind and cramps in the stomach and  bowels from the food decomposing.  The constipation was so bad that my  bowels had to be forced at each passage. All kinds'of'medicines I tried,  but nothing did me any lasting good  until I got Bileans. I have uever found  anything to equal them for constipa  lion and liver and stomach troubles.  They soon began to do me good and in  the end cured me. Since using theni  I feel like a different woman. I,am  bright and buoyant in spirits, not dull  and sleepy as I used to be. I have .got  my energy and activity back, and, in  fact, all rny ailments have yielded to  Bileans."  Bileans are a purely herbal remedy  and operate gently on liver and stomach, stimulating those organs to carry  out their functions in nature's normal  way. Headache, constipation, biliousness; piles, pains in '.he chest aiid back,  wind pains and dizziness��� all these  symptoms arise readily from derangements of liver and stomach, so that by  correcting the root cause of these  troubles, Bileans speedily end them  all. This i. surely better than taking  'pi'Wders---for-headache,=_h.o.t=_dthi.k*.^f.o.r_  wind pain, and dealing with each  symptom piecemeal? All druggists  sell Bileans at SO cents per box, or  obtainaole from the- Bilean Co , To  ronto, upon receipt of price. Six boxes  for $2.50.

The leasers, in fact, are working for  themselves, and there is evidently no  shirking; besides, he has a chance to  profit greatly in case a bonanza is  struck. The system, while somewhat  new in the west, is by no means an  American discovery. The "tributer,"  a.* he waa called in the Cornish mines,  represented this same plan at a time  when American mining was still v;ry  young.  BOUNDARY  VALLEY   LODGE  *��ffim*r No. 38.1. 0. 0. F.

The Grip.  "Before we can sympathize with  others, we must have suffered ourselves." No one can realize the suffering attendant upon an attack of the  grip, unless he has had the actual experience. There is probably no disease  that causes so much physical and  mental agony, or which so successfully  defies medical aid. All danger from  the grip, however, may be avoided by  the prompt use of Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy. Among the tens of  thousands who have used this remedy,  not one case has ever been reported  that has resulted in pneumonia or that  has not recovered.
