GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY   JANUARY IS, IQ07,  No. 20  Attempt to Stampede Labor Vote for Socialist  Candidate Exposed.    Densal by Mr. Naden.  In the Green-wood. Ledge of  January 13th appears a letter  over the signature of Chas. Phillips, "president of the Miners'  union, in which it is made to appear that the Liberal candidate,  Geo. R. Naden, was hostile to  the eight-hour day being applied  to the smelting industry. A  Times reporter immediately called  upon Mr. Naden, who cheerfully  furnished the following statement of his position on that question, not only at the conference  -which led-to a settlement of the  recent labor difficulties at the  smelter, but on every other occasion in which the hours of la  boring nien have been under discussion:    ..'���/���  Editor Boundary Creek Times:  Dear Sir���In order to clear up  any misapprehension as to ^my  views on. the eight hour question.  I beg to submit the following: "  Whenever, by reason of dirt,  dust "or fumes, or any other circumstance, the work of smelter  employees is of such a nature as  to endanger their health or their  lives, such employees shoule have  for their benefit a compulsory  eight hour law enacted. That  such other employees, if any, are  entitled to a similar compulsory  law, just as soon as there is a  general eight hour law in the  province. Geo. R. Naden.  The manual Rossland Winter Carnival* vrhich is coming to be regarded  as a provincial event, will beheld on  the five days beginning February 12th.  A. large number of prizes, totalling  over $2,000, as well as five grand  trophies, will be. distributed among the  successful contestants iri the various  games, which includes skating, hockey,  ski-ing, snowshoeing and curling. Reduced rales have been secured on all  lines of railways and every effor*. is  being made to have this eclipse any  previous carnival from an entertaiuiug  point of view.  It is hard to tell what a day  will bring forth, to say nothing  about a week. In the early part  of the week rumors were plentiful of a long shut-down of the  mines aud smelters in the Boundary on account of the inability  of the railroads to furnish the  coal and coke necessary forthe  operation of the  various  plants.  It is now stated that fuel in  abundance can be furnished.  The Granby plant started up  four of their furnaces on Thursday, and work will be resumed  full blast at the company's Phoenix properties before the end of  the week.

Facts  Revealed  by   Investigation.  ���tituKwn um trm i��moimi  SEE THE   DISPLAY  THO  LIMITED  ENCING  SATURDAY, JAN. 5th  jj |   And Running for  Two  Weeks  Only,   We  Will  Place on Sale Our Entire Stock of  Briefly stated, the facts concerning  the Kaien island transaction are as  follows: Shortly after assuming office  the McBride government had to con  sicler various applications for mineral  as well as applications for land made  under the South African war gran'  act, and provincial land act. In each  case.'these applications were rejected,  ind the applicants refused a title on  the plea that by an order in council,  dated 12th day of October. 1891, a reserve had been placed upon a portion  of the Tsimpshean peninsula and that  this reserve covered the land for which  applications had been made. Shortly  after this a lr.rge portion of Kaien  island, comprising land for which ap  plications had been refused, was sold  by the government to speculators,  headed by Peter Larson, the, railway  magnate, and a Mr. Anderson of Victoria, for .the nominal price of $1 per  acre. The sale was kept absolutely  secret until the same group of speculators and their friends had acquired  large blocks of valuable laud adjacent  to thai already secured. These arid  other facts coming to the knowledge  of the opposition memhers of the leg  islature, an investigation was demanded. The committee, appointed,  consisting of a majority of McBride  supporters/brought in a report exonerating the government from any  blame. Dissenting members of the.  committee filed a minoritj' report which  the government refused to publish, but  which, summarized, contains the following facts: "���..'���  'That- the provincial reserve dated  12th October, 1891, did not extend to  Kaien island, and was not intended to  do so.              '      " ,  "That applications under the land  laws of the. province under the South  'African war grant act and under the  mineral act, were nof considered by the  yovernment uoon their merits, but that  the same wore rejected under the subterfuge of applying the reserve of 1891  to said lands contrary to the purport  and intention of the order in council  creating the same.  "That the government did nor deal  directly with the Grand Trunk Pacific  Railway company, but on the contrary  with a band of adventmers (male and  female) who applied for the said lands  for purely speculative purposes, to the  knowledge of the government. That  the government had no communication  either verbal or written, with any representative of the Grand Irunk Pacific  prior to the passing of the order in  council of May, 1904-, and that the  telegram of the 29th of April was a  mere move in the game to enable the  speculators to contend that they could  carry aut their original intention of  procuring the establishment of the  Grand Trunk Pacific terminus on these  INTER   GOODS  at. greatly reduced prices.

"That by the order in council of  May,. 1904, the government placed in  the hands of Messrs. Anderson and  Larsen one of the most valuable public  assets in the prouince for barter with  the Grand Trunk Pacific. Ancl that  Anderson, shortly after the passing of  the o^der in council, proceeded to Montreal, where he succeeded in getting an  agreement from the Grand Trunk  Pacific to pay himself and Larsen  540.001) for th*-* concession which they  had obtained from the government by  said order in council.  "That no satisfactory evidence was  offered showing the. ultimate fale of  this 540,000 agreement.  "That the government had no power  to make this grant, either to Messrs.  Anderson and Larsen or to the Grand  Trunk Pacific without the assent of the  legislature, and that the ministers  wrongly advised his honor, the lieutenant governor, and obtained the  order in council contrary both, to the  spirit and to the letter of the law.  "That the government took no steps  whatever to ascertain whether or not  the grant in question was in the public  interest. That ministers had no knowledge uoon which to proceed in deciding  that question, and beyond making one  or two modific_tians in Mr. Bodwell's  original proposal were utterly reckless  with 1he rights of the province.  "That the provision to divide the  foreshore into blocks of not less than  1.000 fee', was a most unwise one and  enables the Grand Trunk- Pacific to  divide the foreshore into large blocks,  and after the government has selected  its block, or blocks, to place its terminals and wharves in such a position as  to render almost valueless-that portion  of the foreshore belonging to the government.  "That by reason of thev secrecy  maintained by the government and  Messrs. Larsen and Anderson, the  said Larsen and Anderson and their '  immediate associates were enibled to  obtain other lands, including North  and South Porpoise islands, contiguous  to Kaien island and the proposed rail-..-  way line, to the extent of over 3,000  acres.  "That James Anderson received  from his partner, Larsen, in settlement  of their interests in Kaien island and  other adventures in the immediate  neighborhood, the sum of $10,000, be-  si les salary and expenses. He also  received one-sixteenth interest in  North and South Porpoise islands and  in other lands contiguous to Kaien  island, located by him under South  African war script. And also about  live square miles of coal lands some  distance down the coast."  ' From the above il will be noted that  speculators and corporations have received from the McBride government  what private parties were refused, tho  entitled by their prior applications to  first cons-deration. That propeaty,  which from the very nature of its location, will in a few years be worth  millions, was practically given away.  Tliat public affairs are being conducted  in secret, underhanded ways, in the  interest of speculators and friends of  the government. A return to power of  the McBride erovernment means a continuation of these methods of conducting public business. Electors, are you  satisfied with the condition of affairs  revealed by that investigation? If not  record your dissatisfaction by sending  to Victoria a strong Liberal government with Geo. R. Naden as the representative from Greenwood.  V  |ji^n^-^^>iii~iJ  SUMMIT CAMP NOTES  Womens' Goods,  Men's Goods.  Summit camp, near Eholt, in which  are located the famous old B. C mine,  Oro Denero, Emma and Jnmbo mines,  will in the near future add another  property to its shipping list.  James Cunningham, one of the veteran prospectors of the Boundary district, has about completed arrangements for the working of his group of  claims situated in Summit camp, and  bordering on the Emma and Jumbo  claims. This group,- containing the  Molly, Tread well, Climax' Lockport,  Gem Fraction and Emma Fraction  claims, has long been looked upon as a  likely producer of good ore, and the  announcement that active development  will begin as soon as the snow permits  will be a surprise to no one with a  knowledge of the Summit district.  The Gem and Emma Fractions   ad  join the famous Emma property, and  is a continuation of the Emma lead,  with a parallel undeveloped vein on  the latter property also running  through the claims.  The Molly and Treadwell claims adjoin the Jumbo, one of the Emma  trroup, at present working and- shipping good ore,  The work heretofore done on theae  properties has, of course, been of a  prospective nature, but the results have  surpassed the most sanguine expectations of the owner. Two shafts on the  Emma and Gem Fractions of 26 and  30 feet respectively, with crosscuts on  the Molly and Climax revealed the  presence of a large body of copper ore  carrying S5 in gold and 2 per cent copper. This, of course, is no record  breaking-amount, but considering the  magnitude of the ore bodies in this  district and its close proximity to two  railroads, as well as the low cost of  "glory holing" the ore, it is sufficient  to guarantee these claims as dividend  payer-i with an extremely small outlays  at no distant date.  1   I  hi  71 V   f~T-'  t;'-  BOUNDARY   CRfst 7  Boundary Greet Times  Issued everv Tridav  ��T THS  Boundary Creek Prinling and Publishing  Co., Limited,  A.

The attempt of the Socialists  to create the impression that the  Liberal candidate is opposed to  the eight-hour day being extended to smelter employees will  in the end act as a sort of boomerang, but it serves as an example  as to the lengths, or depths,  rather, that their local leaders  will go in their frantic endeavors  to secure this riding for a supporter of Mr. Hawthornthwaite.  Organized labor in the Boundary district has long recognized  G. R. Naden as one of its  staunchest friends, and his reputation for fairness aud cool judgment has more than once beeu  requisitioned by both employer  and employee in settling labor  disputes that threatened to assume serious proportions, and  which in all probability would  have resulted in prolonged struggles, but for the influence he  brought to bear upon the situation. During the recent labor  troubles at the Greenwood smelter, his advice and influence were  largely responsible for the pacific  settlements of the points at issue,  for which he had forwarded to  him. by the union a resolution  containing a unanimous vote of  thanks. In view of this fact, it  is somewhat peculiar to have the  same union officials vainly endeavoring to make him appear as:  the enemy of organized labor. It  is too ridiculous to be taken seriously by those whom it seeks to  influence, and can only be set  down as another example of  cultus politics.  A WEAK DEFENSE.  from time to time existed during  his term of office, and the feeble  defense put up against the many  serious charges preferred against  his administration by the opposition press and speakers.  Coming to the Midway & Vernon railway question, he informed  his audience that he had alvrays  been opposed to "paper railroads," and that it came to his  knowledge that these "charter  were   trying   to   sell  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  mongers'  /.

Now, what any sane person  familiar with the circumstances  would like to know is what particular sin the promoters were  guilty of, even if thev did at-  atempt to dispose of their charter? lis there any clause in the  charter forbidding them selling  it, or which restricts the sale to  any individual or corporation?  Did not the court decide that  the company had complied with  the terms of the charter and were  entitled to their subsidies, aud if  any doubts existed as to the legality of the Midway-Vernon's  claim to their subsidy, why was it  necessary to convey this information to the investors through  C, P.-R. channels?  The explanation, if indeed, it  can be termed such, is hardly of  a nature that will appeal to the  public, who are interested either  in the road itself or in the larger  question of fair dealing between  governments and individuals.  Because Premier McBride professes to dislike paper railways,  or because promoters of railways  express a willingness, to dispose  of their charters, will hardly be  taken as sufficient reason for the  attitude the government adopted  toward the Midway-Vernon road.  There is .a widespread opinion  Ihat this act was an unwarranted  interference on the part of the  administration, instigated by the  C. P. R. Co., and any explanation  vouchsafed so far by the government supporters only tend to  strengthen the public iu that belief.  J. P. McLEOD  BARRISTER AND SOLICITOR  Offices in P O.

From the utterances  of their leader, Mr. Hawthornthwaite, down to those of the  most humble member of their associations, one is forced to the  conclusion that commercial interests of "fall kinds would meet  with but scant consideration at  their hands, were these g-entle-  men ever entrusted with the conduct of -public affairs in this  country.  1   /That such is the case, the fol-  J, R   BROWN.

C:  At a regular meeting of Greenwood  Miners'Union No. 22, W. F. M., the  following resolutions were adopted:  Whereas, Gladstone Miners' Union  of Fernie, B. C, are having a bitter  fight against co-operative greed.  Whereas, The action of the Mine  Owners' association throughout the  American continent are well known to  Greenwood Miners' union.  We, as fellow workers fully recognize the class struggle being waged  throughout . the UnUed States and  Canada, therefore we know that the  capitalists class will violate any agreement to fuither their, dastardly purposes, but go ahead brothers; the smelt-  in', industry of the Boundary is quaking.  Copper was never so high as it isnow, and with the coal mines tied up  the smelting industry of the Boundary  will be crippled.  Resolved, That Greenwood Miners'  union pledge yon their moral  support  You   have   nothing   to   lose but   your  chains,   and   a   world   to gain;  be  it  further  Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be s;nt t'le Greenwood ledjje,  Gladstone Miners' union and Fernie  Ledger, and spread on the minutes of  this union. Signed,  R. A. Matheson, Committee.  ���-This_is^_f torn.___ih_e__.J$oci al istic  element that controls the Miners'  union, and who are the chief supporters of Edgar Dynes the Socialist candidate, lt is a matter  of history that; in this case at  least, capital did not "violate any  agreement to accomplish their  dastardly ends," but lived up to  it fully, as the representative of  John Mitchell, the union leader,  frankly admitted. But be that as  it may, do the electors of this  riding consider it iu their interests to have as their representative a man who shares such opinions as this resolution contains?  We very much mistake the intelligence of the electors if they do.  Ex-Attorney General Wilson,  one of the "charter mongers" of  the Midway-Vernon road, is seeking re-election as a Conservative  candidate in Cariboo. It would  be interesting to know just what  inducement was held out to him  in order to get him safely back  into the fold.  Premier McBkide declares he  dealt directly with the G. T. P.  in the Kaien island deal. How,  then, did James Anderson an.1  Peter Larsen come by that $40,-  000 for transferring the same  land to the officials of that company? If $40,000 was the amount  paid by the Grand Trunk Pacific  why is it the provincial treasury  received only $10,000? Some  member of the McBride govern-  1 ment please answer.

P. for  Nelson, has decided to again be a  candidate for legislative honors,  this time as an independent candidate in Ymir riding.' In an in-,  terview at Goldfields, Nevada, at  which camp Houstou has been for  some time, he thus deals with the  claim of Premier McBride that  whatever prosperity exists in  B. C. is due to his government.  "The province is reported to be  prosperous and the McBride government claims all tbe credit for  the prosperity; but in my opinion  the prosperity of British Columbia is wholly due to the great increase in the population iu Alberta and Saskatchewan,, the  newest provinces of ' Canada,  whose people draw their supply  of lumber almost wholly from  the mills of British Columbia;  aud to the high prices of copper,  lead and silver that have prevailed for nearly two years. The  building of the Grand Trunk Pacific, although construe lion has  not beeu commenced in the province, and the demand for fruit  lands in the Kootenay aud Yale  districts, have also been factors  iu bringing prosperity to the  province. 7 The McBride government gained office in. 1903, and if  it evolved any great measures it  has kept them pigeonholed, for  none have been laid before the  legislative assembly."  John has hit the nail squarely  on the head for once.  Try This for Your Cough.

A BRIGHT LANDLORD  How He Met the Emergency With a  Backward Tenant.  A Montreal landlord developed an  ingenious idea for getting the rent out  of a backward tenant. The reason the  man did not pay his rent was because  he hadn't the money. The reason he  hadn't the money was because he was  down on his lu-k.  The landlord took his tenant down  to McLean & Campbell's Semi-ready  Wardrobe, bought him a new suit of  clothes, and made him feel like a new  man with the courage to go out and  land a job. And a few clays ago the  tenant had paid up all his back rent.  That is the kind of a landlord to have  P. W. George & Co. will be pleased  to show you how what "Semi-ready'  tailoring profits the wearer.  ROSSLAND CAMPAIGN  In no other place in the: province is  the hand of the C. P. R, so clearly  shown as in the campaign now being  conducted in Rossland. The Rossland  Miner, a C. P R, property, bnt hitherto  supporting the Liberal cause, is now  out in favor of the Conservatives and  is particularly bitter in its hostility to  J. A. Macdonald, liberal leader. "Lorne  Campbell, manager of the West Kootenay Power and Light Co., a concern  closely allied with the C. P. R., has  been selected as the Tory standard  bearer, and every effort is being made  by the company to drive Macdonald  out of public life for having the cour  age to oppose the Columbia & Western  land grant arid insist that no favors be  shown the C. P. R. in the matter of  taxation. What the people of Rossland would gain by turning down J. A.  Macdonald, who three weeks from now  will be prernior of British Columbia,  in favor of Lome Campbell, who, in  all probability, will only be a C. P. R.  tool, none of the Tory press have undertaken to explain. It is safe to assume that Rosslund electors will not  prove the easy mark the C. P. R. evi  dently expects, and that the ..Liberal  leader will be returned by a greatly  increased majority.  WANTED-VOTERS' LIST  Never before have the people of the  province been subjected to s'icli treatment as has been handed out to the  JUiberal organization of this district in  regard to the voters' list. Although  the election has been announced since  the 24th of last month, and it is now  the 10th of January, yet the Liberals  have been unable to secure a copy of  the lists. The powers that be seem to  forget that the lists a-e for the people  and not for any one particular party,  and the cost is paid out of the taxes  levied upon the members of all parties  alike. Such petty devices to secure  what they might think is partisan advantage illy becomes what is called  the great party of British Columbia.���  Cranbrook Herald.  Ditto Greenwood, only more.

BILLINGSGATE POLITICS  The Ladies' Aid of the Presbyterian  church 'held their annual meeting on  Thursday at the manse for the election  of officers and transaction of general  business. The report submitted by the  retiring officers showed the past ye-ir  to lii��ve been the most successful in the  history of the Aid, tin* large sum cf  S377 having been contributed by the  association ' toward' church support.  The retiring officers wore all unanimously re-elected, Mrs. K. Whiteside  as president, Mrs. M. D. McKee, vice,  and Mrs. B. M. Snyder sec-treaa. Several new members were enrolled and a  comprehensive plan laid out for the  present year's work. The Aid at present is in a flourishing condi'ion and  begins the new year's work under the  most favorable auspices.  The Greenwood band, which is holding a carnival in the skating rink on.  January 24 h, are sparing no pains to  make it the most attractive winter  event of the sea-on. Admission, 50  cents.   Childrea,_25 cents.  It is a mistaken notion that communications like the one appearidg in  the last issue of the Greenwood Le_ge,  will have any weight in influencing  electors in the marking of their ballots  on polling day, and it is questionable  if cither the party in whose interest  tfi:i"a-rlicle~"^T"*vmt^^  who throws its columns open to such  mud slinging- productions, will in the  least benefit by it. Greenwood knows  the record of the writer of this article  just as well as it knows the record of  G. R. Naden, and the public are invited  to make their own comparisons.  "Greenwood riding is fortunate in this  campaign in having candidates singu  larly free from any taint. In _J. G.  Warren the Conservatives have a man  of clean morals and good business  ability, with a record of successfully  managing the interests entrusted to  his care, and any communication  reaching this office containing- reflections upon either his moral or business  reputation will be promptly consigned  .o the stove.  In G. R. Naden the Liberals have a  candidate of unblemished character,  with a long and successful career in  civic polities'* and an intimate knowledge of the various interests of this  part of B.

There is plenty of indisputable evidence to prove that  Consumption has been cured even after the symptoms  were well defined and the lungs actually involved.  On the other hand, there has always been a point  beyond which the disease has been considered incurable. Until a comparatively recent date this point had a  place at a very early stage of the malady, but modern  scientific discovery and common-sense methods of  treatment have gradually.moved the hopeless point  further and further back, until now the Consumptive  is not "given up" until the very last stage of the  disease is reached.  Nothing in recent years has done so much to improve the chances of Consumptives as the advent of  In fact, it is claimed that, with plenty of fresh air, sunlight and comfortable surroundings, FERROL has  pushed the hopeless point to the limit, that is to say,  where these fail the chances of cure are very slim  indeed.  FERROL does not kill the germs of Consumption  (anything that will do that will kill the patient), but  FERROL does the work by repairing the waste tissue,  enriching the blood, toning the nerves, in short, by  building up the whole system and thus enabling nature  to expel the disease.  The only possible chance of curing Consumption is  by proper nutrition, and FERROL is the only perfect  nutrient, because it combines in palatable and easily  digested form the very essentials of life���Oil, Iron and  Phosphorus.  We feel some diffidence in claiming that FERROL  will cure Consumption, lest we be misunderstood, but  we have not the slightest hesitation in stating that it is  an infallible cure for Bronchitis, Chronic Coughs,  Croup, Whooping Cough, Chronic Rheumatism,  Neuralgia, Nervous Exhaustion, Scrofula  and all wasting, diseases.  For restoring lost weight and building up the rundown system FERROL is absolutely without an equal.  WHITE BROS., RED CROSS PHARMACY,  D_ruggis���tsjndJ)p_MaiijL__     Greenwood, B.'C.

PROPRIETOR  The Conservative convention called  to nominate a candidate for Ymir  turned out to be a surprise to the party  leaders. Harry Wright, the old member, and James Schofield, C. P. R.  agent at Trail, beiny almost neck and  neck in the running. Failing to come  to any understanding, the Wright  faction walked out of the hall, declaring they wiU support J. Fred Hume,  the Liberal candidate, in preference to  a C. P. R. official who would, in all  probabilit}-, obey the instructions ot  the big corporation to the letter.  Among a large section of the Conservatives in the titper country there is a  strong' desire to shake off the C. P. R.  shackles and the break in the ranks at  Ymir will further swell the majority  of the Liberal candidate in that riding.  W. W. B.

In view of Premier McBride's of'  repeated assertion that in the Kaien  island ileal he dealt directly with the  G. T. P., it is interesting to read what  he had to say und.r oath bef< re the  commission which investigated the  scandal:  Q.���Had you any communication  with the Grand Trunk Pacific company  prior to the 3rd March (1904)?  Premier McBride���I may have, had  some con.munic-*tion with them, I can  not say.  Q.���Or at  the  time  you passed  the  order in council on the 3rd  may (19041?  Premier McBride���No letters, if they  were not produced.  Q.���Neither from 1he government to  the railway comp?ny, nor from the  Grand Trunk Pacific to the government?  Premier McBride:���None, if 'they are  hot produced.  Q.���Now, where do you find that you  carried out your intention of dealinp  direct with the Grand Trunk Pacific  ���Raiiway company?  Premier McBride���In the order in  council and in *he crown grant which  was afterwards made.  Q.���-Still you say you had no communication with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company.  Premier McBride ~ Well, Mr. Bodwell  was given to understand that that was  the only way that the government  would deal with the proposition. The  proposition to establish a townsite  there was made by Mr. Bodwell. We  treated with Mr. Bodwell in a confidential way, knowing that he was the  representative of the Grand Trunk  Pacific and having his word tor it, and  aTh-TwasTanil i he n.Wan* of'standing  in the comnuuty the government felt  that it had 'every right to treat with  him in that way. *  Q.���Then the only communication  that you have seen, or received, varying Mr. 'Bodwell's position from that  outlined on the 19th of January, and  from which you could assume he was  acting for the company, was this telegram of the 2tHh of April?  Premier McBride���Yes, and in addition to that we have his word of honor,  certainly.  And Mr. Green swore:  Q.���Therefore, you had  no talk.with  anv official of the Grand Trunk Pacific  in connection with the  transaction, no  dealing   nor bargaining  with them at  all?  Mr. Green���No, absolutely none.  Mr. Bodwell's sworn   evidence as  to  his cot-nection   with  the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway   company   was  as follows:  "As far as I was concerned I had no  interest at all except that I was glad to  be connected with a transaction of that  kind, because it brought me into close  connection with the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway company. The Grand  Trank Pacific would have paid me had  I been their solicitor in the matter, but  I was not their solicitor and had no  bill against them. In so far as Mr.  Larsen is concerned I did a great deal  of business for him and, as a matter of  fact, I did not render him any bill on  the matter, and really I am out of  pocket for disbursements."'  Any pretence that Mr,  Bodwell was  acting for the Grand Tr ink Pacific on  the 3rd of May, when the order in  council was passed, is disposed of by  what Mr. Bodwell swore took place  between himself and Mr. Hayes (president of the G. T. P. company) in June,  1804.    Mr. Bodwell said: ;i  "I would like you to understand, Mr!  Hayes, that it was perfectly understoon  as far as I know, that there was to bi  no attempt made to hold up your comj"  pany at all, and I said there was no  possibility of it. Mr. Hayes said:  'Well, I would like you to advise us in  the matter,' and 1 said I cannot act for  you in the matter. I am Mr. Larsen's  solicitor and I think I am going as far  as I have any right to go in saying  what I do, but I cannot attempt to  think of advising the Grand Tiunk  Pacific, and I cannot act as your solicitor, or take anything from you by  way of professional fees in the mat  ter."

SCALDED BY BOILING FAT  COULDN'T,USE HAND FOR A MONTH  Zatn-Buk Their Applied and Gave Install! Relief.  An accident in a Toronto home the  other day might have had very serious  consequences had it not been foi Zam-  Buk. Miss Martha Green of 9 Cla*-e-  mont street, in taking a pan of boiling  fat from the oven spilt it over her  right hand. "The boiling fat ran into  the palm of my hand," she says, 'and  over all my fingers. You may well  imagine the agony I suffered in conse  quence, I was almost wild with the  pain. The hand became swoolen, and  large blisters formed a'l over the palm  and along the fingers. For over a  month I was unaole tu use the hand at  all. I tried several kinds of salves and  liniments, but the wound seemed apparently no better. It was altogether  too severe for these preparations to  heal. About this time I was a,dvised  to try Zam-Buk. I stopped using all  other preparations and applied Zam-  Buk instead. The very first applica  Tion'_slmtli^d_^^"hT^d"^l3^Wm'eTl"to"  draw out the fire and inflammation;  and as I kept on using Zam-Buk the  blisters gradually dried up and disappeared. In a very short time the scald  was healed completely."  This is but one instance of the uses  to which Zam-Buk can be so advantageously applied. It is equally effective  for burns, cuts, bruises, abrasions  sprains and stiffness. It also -curjs  eczema, ulcers, sores, blood poison,  ringworm, scalp sores, chronic wounds,  acne, blackheads, pimples, sold sores,  chapped hands and all skin diseases  and injuries. Rubbed well on to the  chest, in cases of cold, it relieves tin*  aching and tightness, and applied a*-  an embr.cation it cures rheumatism,  sciatica, neuralgia, etc. All druggists  sell Zam-Buk at 50 cents a box, or it  may be obtained from the Z;un-Buk  Co., Toronto, upon receipt of price.

Greenwood's fire brigade hadaiun  last night, about 11 o'clock, fire being  ���liscovered in the basement of Fraw-  icy's barber shop. The recent cold  veather has been playing havoc with  the water pipes in connection with the  baths, and until late last nig.it the  plumber was engaged in thawing them  out, It is presumed that the fire orig  inated from this, as it was only a short  time after he left that the fire was  noticed. The boys were promptly on  the scene, and succeeded in confining  the fire to the basement. Beyond the  rough usage incidental to a hurried  removal of the furnishings, little damage was done.

The campaign  being waged against him by the Miner  is^thoroughlyunderstood^here^and^is  doing him good.  The nomination of Campbell by the  Conservatives was in the nature of a  last resort. Goodeve would have  jumped at it if he had thought there  was even a look in for a supporter of  the local government.  Mr. Campbell's candidature is resented by all the workingmen. Their  attitude is simply this: If Chine*e  had votes, Campbell might have a  show to win.  Rossland is proud of J.   A,  Macdonald and  fully  expects the  Liberals to  carry the province, and   intends  to  be  the riding that will give the  new gov  eminent its premier. u  Danjrers of a Cold and How to Avoid  Them.  More fatalities have their origin in  or result from a cold than from any  other cause. This fact alone should  make people more careful as there is  no danger whatever from a coia wncu  it is properly treated in the beginning.  For many years Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy has been recognized as the  most prompt and effectual medicine in  use for this disease. It acts on nature'.-,  plan, loosens the cough, relieves the  lungs, opens the secretions and aids  nature in restoring the system to a  healthy condition. Sold by all druggists.

Which way  it is heading, or whether it is stationary, is hard to tell. At all event.'', it  seems to linger here regardless of the  many forcible expressions made re  garding it.  The thermometer registered 48 degrees below zero in the glass at L. B.  Hodge's residence on Sunday night.  Many others recorded something over  40, so that this surpasses anything on  record in the Boundary district.  The severity of the weather does  not at all appear local in character.  but extends over the entire Northwest  as well as the Pacific slope. At Ed-  manton 60 below has been the limit,  while for a whole day the glass stoot  at 42.  At the coast great suffering has been  caused by the unusual cold, and ev :n  in the sunny Okanagan and Similkameen valleys unheardof records have  been registered by the thermometer.  At Hedley the big po-.ver plant of the  Nickle Plate mine is completely tied  n^ntfie~flu7me"cbhducting"-the water  from Twenty Mile creek, being frozen  solid, and the glass reading 17 below  zero. At the mine itself, which has  an altitude of nearly 6,000 feet, the  snow fall this season totals nearly  11 feet. At the present time there is  no indication of any break in the  weather, and good curling ice ancl  frozen water pipes continue to be the  order of the day.  RESULTS OF FUEL FAMINE  The fuel famine, or the results of it,  has struck the Boundary district, and  likethe accompanying cold wave, has  atruck it hard. Neither of the two big  railroads that handle the output of the  various camps can supply themselves  with fuel, to say nothing of supplying  the mines and smelters. As a consequence, everything is at a standstill iu  the mining and smelting industries,  ���with the exception of the Mother Lode  mine and smelter, and these also are  expected to close at any time. The  Granby and Cominion Copper Co.'s  mines and smelting plants have been  closed for some, days, and will not  likely reopen nntil assured of sufficient  fuel to guarantee continuous operation.  When that will be even the raiUoad  authorities themselves do not appear :o  know. It i�� to be hoped that the shutdown will be of short duration and  that no further obstacle will be encountered in making this, in point of  production, the banner year of the  Boundary district.

Wellington has died at- his  home in Trinity avenue, New York,  the victim of a disease which caused  his bones to snap like glass. One day,  while holding a strap in a street car,  iiis arm snapped off. A short time  later a leg bone snapped. According  to his physi.ian this terrible condition  was brought about by taking medicine  which contained a certain mineral  poison.  Again and again has it be<n demonstrated that mineral medicines are  harmful. It is because Bileans, while  so effective for all liver and digestive  disorders, yet contains no trace of any  mineral, but are, on the contrary,  purely herbal, that they have won the  praise of medical men, trained nurses  and scientists all the world uover.  Bileans differ from pretty nearly every  other liver medicine in containing no  mercury, and from pretty nearly every  other stomach medicine in being free  from bismuth. They are also free  ~fi-om*=~alcOhblr'^They-:-are"compocnded  from the finest known medicinal herbs  and roots, ancl are thus the best family  medicine that can be obtained, Thev  operate gently on the bowels, cuiing  constipation and piles. They correct  acidity of the stomach, stimulate the  digestion, tone up the liver, and correct the secretions of bile. Their gen  eral action is at the sr.me time corrective aud tonic���correcting faulty secretion, toning up weak and debilitated  organs. They thus cure anemia, green  sickness, female ailments and irregularities, blood impurities, rheumatism,  etc. For nausea, headache, gas, pain  in the chest and between the shoulders  they, are also very effective. Their  operation is mild, yet effective. In  curing constipation they do not cause  after-constipation, nor do they ever  cause griping. Mothers will find theni  beneficial in the many little ailments  to which children are subject. 1 11  druggists sell Bileans at fifty cents a  box, or they may be obtained post fr.e  froni the Bilean Co., Toronto, on receipt of price. For S2 50 a parcel of  six boxes vvill be mailed. This is the  most economical form  for   family use.  The Dominion Co-iper company has  discontinued operations on the group  of claims near Danville, Wash., upon  which they recently took a bond.  The Montreal Star sugges'. that the  company who recently secured the  privilege of pumping out Cobalt lake  had better extend their operations and  pump the water out of the mining  stocks of companies operating there.  Development work on the cinnabar  deposit on the Kuskokwin river,  Alaska, h- s revealed ihe richest lead  of that ore ever known, running from  9 to 80 per cent quicksilver. TCeeent  mineial strikes there indicnte that it  is a country of remarkable resources,  and it is likely a heavy rush of prospectors will be made to that country in  the spring.  Manager Drummond reports that the  Dominion Copper Co. are still operat  ing one furnace atBoundary Falls, and  ihat by the end of the week both furnaces will be in operation, so that the  fuel question will not, after a'l, seriously affect the Boundary.  The well known Sally mine, al  Beaverdell, is shipping another ear of  high grade ore. Frank Bubar, of Midway, having the contract lor hauling  the ore to the Midway statiou. Some  time ago, in drifting on the lead, a  break was encountered. Crosscuttiri}*.  for the ore was immediately begun,  and last week ihe work was crowned  with success, the lead being loi ated,  bigger and stronger than at any previous time in the history of the mine.  Woik of extracting the ore is progressing rapidly in order to ship as  much as possible while the sleighing  it- good. '       .  Large deposits of tin ore are being  locuted in southwestern Mexico.  The report submitted, by Foreman  Henderson of the Wallace Mountain  Co 's group, is of the most encouraging nature. In sinking to the 100 foot  level, a break in the lead was encount  ered. Sinking was continued, however, to the level aimed at, and a cross  cut" run in a southerly direction to tap  the lead. This was accmnplished by  eight feet of work, showing the break,  in that property to be of an insignifi -  cant nature.' Drifting on the vein has  continued steadily and now at a distance of 20 feet from ihe bottom of the  shaft, 2l/2 feet of solid ore is exposed  in the face of the drift. Forty tons of  ore are in the sheds awaiting the ore  haulers, The local owners of this  property are naturally jubilant over  the condition of affairs as revealed by  the report, and efforts will be made to  continue the vigorous development  policy now being carried sn.  J. W. Nelson, one of the local owners  of the Rambler mine, reports that the  ore at present being extracted is the  richest yet encountered on the claim.  A car for use in the mine-is' being  shipped by hiin to Beaverdill this  week.  Southern Pacific railway officials are  having elaborate tests made of smelter  slag as to its merits as a material for  making concrete for heavy railway  work.  ���a*uinttr>M��_-_,jate__ugrtm Bimia.u>_wiWL.
