Several B. C. members have been  mentioned for preferment and new departments have been created." These  dispatches were all interesting but  unfortunately were not based on fact:  no changes in the cabinet are at present contemplated. When British  Columbia is given a portfolio it is not  at all probable that the province will  be given two cabinet ministers. Senator Templeman remains in the cabinet so long as he cares to do so and  when a portfolio is available for B. C.  he will be the minister in charge.  Ambitious members who are casting  longing eyes on cabinet positions and  newspapers who publish dispatches to  promote their interests are prolonging  the time when B. C. will be given a  department. Sir Wilfrid is in no  -IriuTyi' U'i*;-'-r.'i-ckc-"->.'a.iJiti.t changes and'  make comments Of cabinet position,  hunters and their friendly newspaper  organs ���show a lack of unanimity in  the provinces which gives the premier  an excuse to delay action.  Golconda. Buckhorn, Crescent And  Lake to Resume Work-  Judge Hnllett, as agent for the Golconda Mines, Ltd., received word this  week that work on the Golconda group,  Smith's camp, is to be resumed shortly.  The group comprises seven claims. A  quartz vein from six to ten feet wide,  has been stripped 'On the surface for  600 feet. There is a 50-foot shaft and  a 300-foot tunnel which when extended  250 feet farther will tap the vein at  depth. The values are iri gold and run  from $12 to. $30 per ton. The group  can soon be made a shipper. The  principal shareholders are Hon. Geo.  E. Foster, Toronto, F. P. Buck, Sher-  brooke, and Rufus Pope, Cookshire.  J. C. Hass, M. E., was one of the  original owners.  The shareholders in the Buckhoru  Co., owning the Buckhorn group,  Deadwood camp, will meet |at Cookshire on the 22nd inst., when it is  understood arrangements will be made  to resume operations. The group is a  high grade copper-gold proposition.  Its shareholders include Messrs. Pope,  and Bucke.  Judge Hallett was also advised that  the Crescent and Lake mines'in Skylark camp are to resume work immediately The Crescent is on a shipping  basis, adjoins the Coro-Canadian,  and has $3000 worth of ore on the  dump. It is vested in the Chicage-B.  C. Mining Co., Harry Shallenberger,  of Spokane, being a large shareholder.  The Lake group, west of the Crescent  group, comprises the Lake, Yellowstone, Idaho, Yellowstone fraction,  and Don Pedro. It has numerous  workings from which high grade ore  can be shipped,  PLANS FOR  BIG PLANT  B. C. Copper Co. to Increase  Capacity to 1800.

He is determined to probe the  mystery of Blair's sudden resignation-  hoping to further humiliate the nice  strong man in the probing. Other  conservative leaders are fearful that  the searchlight will be turned on because they realize that their party  leaders would be connected with the  great conspiracy. So the probability  is that a plot to overthrow the Laurier  government will not be investigated  by parliament.  The Canadian Manufacturers Association are putting up a strong lobby  against Ralph Smith's union-label  bill. As Mr. Smith expressed it in the  house, the Manufacturers' Association  want protection for themselves and  free trade''for the rest of-the world.

I * -  The "liro'olclyn'and* Phoenix hotels,  Dominion avenue, Phoenix, were totally destroyed by fire Tuesday forenoon; loss 515,000, partially insured.  At one time it appeared as if the whole  block would go and also the postoffice  block opposite. Bnt volunteer hose  companies kept the fire to the two  hotels mentioned. Considerable loss  was sustained to the Mint hotel near  the Phoenix and to goods moved from  the zone of the fire.  The Brooklyn hotel was owned by  James Marshall and E. P. Shea, was a  three story structure and cost them  about S7000. They had $2000 insurance. The Phoenix hotel was owned  by mayor Rumberger, now in the east,  and was partially insured. It was occupied by W. L. Dunn and Mrs. S. A.  McCormack, whose loss on contents,  is-totalv^J-^Hv-Gryham^has^SlOOO insurance on the Mint hotel.  The leserve water' tanks of the  Granby works were drawn on and the  firemen had a hard time confining the  flames to the corner where the fi.e  started. There were some narrow escapes, as a dozen men were asleep in  the burning buildings when the flames  broke out at 10 o'clock. The Brooklyn  hotel will be rebuilt.  A paragraph in our last is&ue stated  thktJ. E. McAllister, superintendent  of the British Columbia Copper Co's  smelter, was leaving next day for New  York for the purpose of conferring  with the board of directors respecting  the question of the enlargement of the  plant.  From the company's standpoint the  announcement seems to have been a  little premature.  Fredric Keffer. general manager of  the company, was interviewed yesterday by the Times in regard to the intentions of the board of directors.  "It is quite true, "said Mr. Keffer,"  that the board for some time past has  been seriously considering the question of enlarging the scope ot the company's smelting and mining operations. : Accordingly, plans for four  new furnaces, with an approxmate  daily capacity of 1800 tons were prepared recently.  "Representatives, of ��� various . rjou  works were likewise invited to submit0  tenders for constructing and installing this'proposed plant. Mr. McAllister is now enroute to New York.  If the plans are adopted no doubt an  official announcement will shortly be  made on behalf of the board of directors- A change in the ore bins in order  'to facilitate the handling of the ores  is also contemplated. The proposed  furnaces would be of a much larger  type than those now in use and it is  likely that the old furnaces, two in  number, would, under these circumstances, be discarded.  'In the event of the board approving  the programme for enlargement, the  new plant should be in operation late  next fall."

Startling- But True*  People the world over were horrified  on learning of the burning of a Chicago theater in which nearly six hundred  people lost their lives, yet more than  five times this number or over 3,000  people died from pneumonia in Chicago during the same year, with scarcely  a passing notice. Every one of these  cases of pneumonia resulted from a  cold and could have been prevented by  the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy. A great many who had  every reason to fear pneumonia have  warded it off by the prompt use of this  remedy. The following is ati instance  of this sort: "Too much cannot'be  said in favor of Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, and especially for colds and  influenza. I know that it cured my  daughter, Laura, pf a severe cold, and  I believe saved her life when she was  threatened with pneumonia."���W. D.  Wilcox, Logan, New York Sold by  all druggists.

Pbr Yeak    2 00  Six Months 1 25  To Foreign Cou-wtries  .2 50  FRIDAY  FICBRUAKY 17, 1905  We are on the verge of a marked revival of mining activity.  Just what proportions the movement will assume cannot be defined but the indications point to  the employment this year of more  miners than at any period for the  past six years. The absence of  the stock jobber and mining promoter, features so conspicuous in  the old days, augur -well for the  future of the camp. By a natural  process of evolution the exploitation of the low grade properties is being left to companies  with large capital, men with  smaller means finding scope for  their abilities in developing the  high grade quartz veins with  which this camp has been especially favored. At this writing  seventeen   high   grade   proposi-  The recent high tribute paid  the Boundary country by M. M.  Johnson, the eminent mining-  engineer, cannot fail to arouse  fresh interest in our enormous  mineral resources. The name Of  Mr. Johnson is one that carries  weight not only throughout the  United States but in European  investing centres. Mr. Johnson's  visit here has already attracted  no little attention from the financial press of the Eastern states.  The Boston News Bureau, stated  that his mission to the Boundary  was on. behalf of the Guggen-  heims, the virtual head of the  American smelter trust. These  millionaire operators, according  to the same journal, -have virtually acquired control of the Montreal & Boston Co., owning some  of the leading copper-gold properties of this district. Hitherto  the present management has met  its payroll and other obligations  with unfailing regularityt and is  consequently held in high esteem.  It is likely. however, that the  transfer of the control to the  Guggenheim's would lead, to the  adoption of a policy calculated to  threaten the supremacy of the  Granby and British Columbia  Copper companies.  The Socialists have introduced  a bill in the provincial legislation providing for an eight hour  day for smelter employees. Premier McBride's solicitude for the  third party will soon be put to  the test. In a measure of such  vital importance the government  cannot evade the issue, but must  declare its attitude. It begins to  look as though the Socialistic  friends of Mr. McBride have got  him treed at last.  Manager McVicar of the Last  Chance mine has made good his  his promises to maintain a weekly output of fifty tons. Last  week he actually exceeded his  estimate by nine tons. This enviable record, which will be increased rather than diminished,  places the L?st Chance at the  head of high grade producers.

There seems, to be a growing  sentiment in favor of the erection  of a concentrator in Greenwood  for the purpose of handling the  high grade ores of this camp.  While none of the smaller mines  would be justified in undertaking  the-enterprise���single-handed,���a-  plan for collective action could  easily be devised. We understand  that the cost of erecting a plant  designed to handle an output of  100 tons daily, would .not exceed  $25,000, and the results to be  secured by concentrating the ores  would soon re-coup the mine  owners in the way of the saving  to be effected by shipping a concentrated product. This proposed method, it is obvious, would  also do away with the method  now in vogue of sorting and cobbing the ores. There is an  abundance of -water in Boundary  Creek at all seasons of the year  for a plant such as is proposed.  The erection of a concentrator  would also tend to lead to the  development of medium-grade ore  bodies which cannot now be  mined and shipped at a profit.  Jt is the next natural step iu the  evolution of this camp, and should  be taken without delay.  Greenwood will be advertised  by its failure to be represented at  the meetiug- of the Associated  Boards of Trade at Nelson next  week. It.is, however, not a very  desirable kind of an advertisement for the leading  centre of the interior.  LP**  mining  "The long succession of deficits  has not been broken, although in  some instances the rate of taxation has been more than doubled" is the way the Victoria Times  sizes up the financial statement  of the McBride government.

The facts are that the Munroc-  with their Canadian associates, had  succeeded in purchasing the Dominion  group of properties in Phoenix, B. C,  because of a disagreement between the  owners, James Breen, of Spokane, and  Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann. Cash  to the amount of 5482,000 was to be  paid for tbe properties, $266,000 down,  and the balance, or 5216,000, payable  in eighteen instalment, of $12,000 per  month. At the same time they paid  $60,000 for the Athelstan property upon which $10,000 is still due, then the  underwriting syndicate, in addition to  providing cash for the purchase of  these properties was to place $150,000  cash in the treasury for working  capital. The above would have required the raising of $700,000, which  was represented by 700,000 shares of  stock underwritten at $1 per share.  Operations were only carried on three  mouths last year and with one furnace  there was produced 900,000 lbs of copper, 1000 ozs. of silver and. 3200 ozs. of  gold. Beginning with the new year,  however a second furnace was placed  in operation so that the companj- is  now producing about 600,000 lbs. of  copper per month, which should net it  about $25,000. A third furnace is  is about set up. It is planned to add a  fourth furnace during the year which  would permit of a monthly production  of 1,200,000 lbs..of copper.

Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatly in excess oP'the stippl)* and  Great' Britain is always clamoring  for more. That means a steady  market ancl g-ood prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting- hen. She is wasting- lime setting- when she should be.  laying. While she -is hatching- and  brooding- a few chickens she could bo  laying- five or six dozen eg-g's. The  percentag-c of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that, has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. Between these wails  mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  as a rock.

The  work of installing this plant has  stretched over two years, and while  progress has been siow it has been  none the less sure. A better location  for a water power' plant could not be  found, for there is no e ui to the  energy running to waste, and the  ability of the company to furnish  power is only limited to the demand.  The capacity of the plant .an be  readily increased, and wh��n once in  operation the demand for power will  grow. Like all enterprises started in  this remote and hard to get at region  the company, has met with many set  backs and drawbacks, but perseverance and energy on the part of J. M,  Hagerty, the promoter, has won out in  the long run. At the present time a  force is pushing work as rapidly as  possible in order to get out of the way  of high water always duejin the spring  months. Mr. Andi'tis informs us that  the excavations in the wheel pit are  complete, and the forms for laying  the' concrete wall are built and the  concrete is now going up.  Afraid of Strong Medicines-  Many people suffer for years from  rheumatic pains, and prefer to do so  rather than take the strong medicines  usually given for rheumatism, not  knowing that quick relief from pain  may be had simply bv applying Chamberlain's Pain Balm and without taking any medicine internally. Rev.  Amos Parker of'Magnolia, North Carolina, suffered for eight years with a  lame hip, due to severe rheumatic  oains.
