The Preston, situated a short distance above Greenwood, has been systematically developed by local and  Chicago people, interested by Alex.  Miller and Richard Armstrong. Three  veins traverse the claini, all of which  have been developed^ far enough to  prove rich ore. Nineteen men were  employed for a month to rush development. Now that the property is proved  a very valuable one and the making of  a mine, the force has been reduced to  ten men, and development concentrated on what is known as No. . 2  vein. This vein is developed by a  a shaft S3 feet deep, sunk on the vein,  and a stope north and south, which  is being carried down with the shaft.  The oxidation in the vein was very  heavy to the 33-foot level, when the ore  came in solid and clear, and from 2 to  8 inches wide. Some very high assays  have been had, but, the ore as it comes  out averages from $115 to $128, chiefly  silver���gold $9 to $22. Yesterday slabs  of ore were knocked down that would  not go into the bucket. The* ore  is free on both walls. A drift is  being run on the vein from a gulch  south of the shaft, all in ore. Here  the ore is not so wide, only averaging  3^ inches, but clean and carrying  good values. The main shoot has not  been reached, but the management  think that in the next eight feet it will  be tapped, where78 to 14 inches of  quartz is exposed on the surface 40  feet above. In about a month, when  development is sufficiently far advanced, regular shipments will be  made from the mine. -  mines. Some years ago considerable  work was done on the TBruce and  bunches of rich copper ore occasionally  encountered, but as yet no continuous  lead has been found. Farther west  ou the Graham group adarge amount of  development has been done, . but  nothing has yet been found that would  give returns for the expenditure made.  If Mr. Hogue is a mine expert, has  seen the Broken Hill mines of Australia, and believes Graham camp is an  exact counterpart of the famous Australian mines, he is welcome to his  opinion, but it would not be unwise  for people to get the opinion of a mining engineer before investing. It is to  be hoped that Mr. Hogue is right, but  until his assertions are backed up by  development and regular 7' shipments of ore in paying' quantities, it  would be advisable for people with  surplus cash to keep it in the bank or  in their pockets.  On the Bay about t'wo cars of ore are  on the dump ready for shipment. This  will run about SlOO to the ton. The  work done consists of a 100-foot shaft,  and from this a 50-foot drift south  at the 25-foot level. There are two  parallel veins on the property. The  larger, on which the shaft has been  sunk, is about two feet in width, and  the smaller 18 inches. The wagon road  will be completed in a few days, when  shipments will be made.  J. W. Hugh Wood came down* from  Beaverdell on the West Fork this  week. Besides the Sally; and Rambler,  considerable work is being done on  Wallace mountain. The Rambler has  18 inches of clean ore. Development  is being pushed on No.l and Nd.2 leads  on the Sally. The Duncan is getting  out good ore, *and every claim on the  hill is showing up well with development.  Andy Hamilton and Tom Corkill  started work this week on the Great  Laxey group, near Eholt.  Pat Kennedy left Wednesday for the  West Fork to work on his properties  on Wallace mountain.  MIDWAY   AND  VERNON.  Some time ago a bond was taken on  the Prince Henry claim by Dr. Spankie  and otherB and a syndicate formed.  The development was placed under the  superintendence" of W. H. Jeffery,* M.  E., who has charge of development on  a mumber of the other high-grade  properties in the camp. The Prince  Henry is situated just above the town.  There are three veins running through  the Prince Henry and the Abercraig,  ajjj��^i___ingj^cjlau^ow the syn  dicate. The Prince Henry is being developed by a shaft sunk on the most  easterly vein, which is supposed to be  the E P U lead. The shaft is now  down 63 feet. The vein���quartz���went  very flat for 25 feet, then pitched 25  degrees from horizontal, and is now  pitching 45 degrees. There are from  5 to 9 inches df solid quartz at the  bottom of the shaft, showing galena,  zinc blende, iron and copper pyrites,  assaying from 1 to 2>_ ounces gold, and  20 to 33 ounces silver, and 1.05 per cent  copper. The Prince Henry is considered one of ths most promising of  the hi-jh-grade properties in the vicinity of Greenwood.  Construction Work to Be Commenced  Next Week by McLean Bros*  Word was received in the city yesterday morning that grading would be  commenced next week on the Midway  and Vernon railway by McLean Bros.,  the contractors. There has been considerable trouble in financing the road  by the holders of the charter���mostly  local men, owing to the opposition of  one of the large railway corporations  which wanted the charter but would  not build, in the near future. However, the local holders have at last suc-  ceded.andJhe_road,is now._assiired-.  STORE CLOSES DAILY AT SEVEN O'CLOCK  EXCEPT SATURDAYS AT 10 P.  M.  Last week an article from the Nelson ���Tribune was published in The  Times, drawing attention to the King  Edward promotion by Fox & Ross of  Toronto and the "expert" opinion of  E. A. Hogue in regard to the claim or  group of claims. Since then some  facts have been ascertained which may  be of value to investors. A number  of claims were relocated uy Mr. Hogue  in June last. These are situated about  three miles west of Midway, in Graham camp and are at least fifteen miles  from the Granby mines at Phoenix.  Possibly 20 feet of work has been done  on them by previous owners. The  "showing may be an exact couuterpart  of the Broken Hill Mines in Australia."  This we do not know, for we have  never seen the_Broken Hill Mines of  in Australia, but we do know that there  isnoreasonable ground for the inference  that the group has lhe ore body or any  other characteristic of the deposits in  either the Mother L,ode or the Granby  The charter for the Midway and Vernon railway was granted five years  ago for the construction of a railway  between Vernon, the terminus of the  C. P. R. at Vernon at the head ot  Okanagan lake, and Midway, the terminus of the C. P. R. in the Boundary.  From Vernon the proposed road will  run along the eastern side of Okanagan  lake, coming through a pass between  the headwaters of Mission and Wilkinson creeks, and along the latter to  the West Fork near Carmi, and following the river to Midway.  The road will pass through one of  the richest mining districts in British  Columbia, that of the West Fork of  Kettle river, where an average assay  of less than 5100 is not considered of  sufficient value to do assessment on.  The road will not only be. of benefit to  to the mine owners and prospectors of  the West Fork but also to the farmers  and fruit growers of the Okanagan,  giving the latter an excellent market  for their produce in the mining camps  of the Boundary and West Fork.  It will perhaps be a year or even two  before the road is in operation as far  as Beaverdell and Carmi. the center  of the rich mining belt, but there is  some encouragement to those who have  held claims in the district for eight or  ten years, in the fact that grading has  been started.

JULY 28, L905  Y  THE WASTE DUMP.  Coal briquettes for household ' use  were first made in 1877.,  On account of their porosity, sandstones offer good material for pre tie-  position from underground waters.  /The United States mint has coined  25,028 Lewis & Clark gold dollars in  commemoration of 'the exposition at  Portland Oregon.  The native oxides of manganese that  are in a higher state of oxidation than  manganous oxide are used largely in  the manufacture of chlorine.  That portion of the winding rope  nearest the cag-e is subject to the  greatest strain and fatigue, on account of the shock at starting and the  sudden reduction of speed at the end of  the trip.  The copper production of the United  States is about 60 per cent of the total  production of the world. At the present time the Boston and Montana  mines at Butte are the largest producers in the world.  California, Utah . and Virginia were  the only states producing true' manganese in 1904. Considerable quantities of ores containing some manganese were mined in Colorado, Arkansas  and the LaKe Superior region.  A volt meter has a htgh-resistence  circuit, inasmuch as it receives the full  pressure of the circuit to be measured.  The ammeter, on the other baud, must  have a very low resistence circuit, as  it receives and measures the full  volume of the current.  ������ A missed shot is one which has  fai'ed to explode, whereas a blown-out  shot is one which explodes along the  line of, the shot-hole. The latter are  caused by placing the holes in an improper position in relation to the work  they have to pet form.  The most reliable estimate of the  world's coal production for 1904 gives  a total that approximates very closely  to one billion tons. In 1903 the total  output was' 972,000,000 tons. In the  United States the. 1904 production  showed a decrease of 7,000,000 tons as  compared with 1903. The production  of Great Britain, however, offset the  decrease. About 80 per cent of the  world's production is'supplied by the  United' States, Great Britain and  Germany.  Spontaneous combustion will occur  whenever any combustible stios'tance  is raised to. the kindling temperature.  This rise in temperature may be due  to pressure, confinement of the substance into too small a volume, lack ol  sufficient circulating air and the proximity of some forin of artificial heat.  The action is chemical and not me  chanical, and is'usually'preventable  by the application of common-sense  measures.- The explosion of dusts in  mines may or may not be .spontaneous.  The 'removal of mass copper from  the mines of the Lake Superior region  is a tedious and expensive proceeding.  ^In'stance's=a're"o'ii~record"=-\vhere"the=u_'e"-  of 110 kegs, or 2,750 pounds of powder,  were used to to remove the mass. The  later introduction of the pneumatic  chisel has solved the problem somewhat so that the expense has been decreased. Some of the masses of larger  size require the expenditure of so much  labor in cutting, etc., that the margin  of profit is very narrow. Nevertheless  all these masses are handled where-  ever encountered. The popular belief  that copper occurs in such massive  deposits that it cannot be handled is a  fallacy aud has no. foundation in fact.  Gypsum is abundant and occurs in  many forms. In clear, transparent  crj-stals it is known as scleuite. When  the crystals are finely fibrous and are  arranged paralltl to each other, so as  to form a mass with a pearly opalescence, the mineral is known as satin  spar. When it occurs in uniform, finegrained, translucent masses, it is alabaster. When it occurs in large beds  of massive rock, often mixed with clay,  calcium, carbonate and other impurities, it constitutes earth)- gypsum or  rock gypsum of commerce, a valuable  commodity.  Bismuth is valuable for the quality  it imparts to its alloys wilh certain  metals, by virtue of which they melt  at low temperatures. The chief alloys  are wilh lead, tin and cadmium, singly  or together, and in varying proportions according to the use to which the  alio)' is to be put. The melting point  for the several alloys in common use  ranges from 60 to 94.5 degrees C. They  form safety fuses for electrical apparatus and safety plugs for steam  boilers and automatic fire extinguishers. They are used as solder.-;, as dental   amalgams,   and   as   matrices   for  plaster or wax casts. For baths in  certain operations which require liquids  at definite temperatures below that of  boiling water, the bismuth alloys are  employed.  Great Salt lake is 4,200 feet above  sea level. It is about 80 miles long and  from 20 to 33 miles in width. It has  no apparent ontlet but evaporation! In  1850 the amount of saline matter held  in solution was 22 per ceut, aud at the  present "time it is less than 15 per  cent. The lake is gradually receding.  It was much largeron ce than it is now  The bars, cliffs and beaches formed by  the waters of the ancient lake, called  Lake Bonneville, are plainly visible  along the base of the mountain. The  ancient lake had an area of 19,800  square miles, and in some parts a  depth exceeding a thousand feet. The  depth where the Morruan temple now  stands is estimated to have been 850  feet, Its dry bed is now occupied by  over 200.000 people. The waters of  the lake formerly reached the ocean  through Columbia river. Geological  researches prove that there have been  at least two , moist periods* with intervening and subsequent periods of dryness. A change from the present dry  climate and scanty rainfall to a moist  climate would result in great increase  in area of the waters of the lake, and a  possible return to former vast area.  One   Dollar  Saved   Represents Ten  Dollars Earned.  The average man "dpes not save to  exceed ten per cent of his earnings.  He must spend nine dollars in living  expenses for every dollar saved. That  being the case he cannot be too careful  about unnecessary expenses. Very  often a few cents properly invested,  like buying seeds for his garden, will  save several dollars outlay later ou, It  isthe same in buying Chamberlain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.  It costs but a few cents, and a bottle of  it in*the house often saves'a doctor's  bill of several dollars. For sale by all  druggists.  MINERAL ACT  Certificate of Improvements.

Thc'Great Northern has final!}*  selected Midway in preference to  Republic as the point from which  its Vancouver, Victoria and East-  em railway Is to be built westward to Oroville, whence the  line turns north into the Similkameen. The decision is disclosed  by the letting' of fourteen miles  of. construction work westward  from Midway to P. Welch, the  Spokane railway contractor. It  is expected that other contracts  for work between Midway and  Oroville will be let in the. course  of the next week or two. Several  contracting* ' firms, including-  Porter Bros, of Spokane, have  outfits ready to take the field at  short notice.  From Midway the line will run  west to Molson, Wash. The distance from Midway to Molson is  32 miles, aud it is the first 14  mil.es of this section that have  been let to Mr. Welch.  From-Molson to Oroville the  line swings approximately southwest for about twenty miles.  This section will- present the  most interesting- engineering- obstacles on the0 whole line, inasmuch as Molson is from 1800 to  2,000 feet higher than Oroville.  Contractors who have seen profile plans of the work state that  the road will be carried throughout the Molson-Oroville section  on a supported grade without  switchbacks.  Oroville is located at the mouth  of the Similkameen river, and  thence the V., V. and Ii}, ''runs  norte on both banks of the Sini-  ilkarneeu river.  ��  >_ *__��� ���*���>���?  .-_.   .*.  4-       -t-  _���*_        __.5__.  ODDS AND ENDS.  A good and effectual means of shortening the parliamentary session would  would be ��� the abolition of Hansard.  Ontario has profited immensely by  having no official report, not only .saving the cost of reporting-, transcribing,  and printing stuff that would make  ponderous volumes, but removing the  strongest temptation to wordiness. In  the age of steam presses anyone with  anything to communicate worth printing is certain of publicity without depending upon the indulgent public.���  Toronto Globe.  government is placing the public servant beyond the reach of want. There  is, however, i.v. yur opinion, a mistake  in the proposal to make the grant dependent upon five years' service in the  cabinet. Such a time limit is calculated to -ob the minister of his independence.    A  minister   of  the  crown  will be afraid during the first five years  of lua official life to take an independent stand in the cabinet, because if he  should do so he may have to resign,  and thus lose his pension. This will  not do. The absolute freedom of the  minister must be protected. It would  be well then to remove the five-year  limi't. and to make the grant open to  all who bave been admitted to the  privy council, ;is is the case in Britain.  Perhaps it would be better lo make the  allowance smaller than to leave it wilh  its present discriminatory feature attached to it. 'lhe judicial increases  have been proposed from lime to time  by governments on both sides of  politics. It is recognized that if the  character of the bench is to be sustained the. salaries for the judiciary  must be made larger.���Mail-Empire.  ^_/lh  -'@  ->��  -#  -��  ->$��_i  �����������  -���*��_%  m  -#  "*t_?  -*��  SOUTH  -���-"PI  ���'-*��  Never in the history of the Boundary has the district had a brighter outlook than today, With the successful *de^  velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating  at a very small cost, the continued opening up of new high grade properties and their successful and profitabl  operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds an d  bigger values, It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte, If you  therefore want to participate in its future prosperity, now is the. time to invest both'in mines and real estate; For  NINETY DAYS we intend giving you a chance to make a safe and profitable investment.

He ridiculed the idea that there w.'.s the least  possibility of anything of the kind.  He said: "Where is our overwhelming  force to come from ? Where could we  now find live army corps, the least  possible number lor such a risky campaign ? You talk of the Transcaspian  aud Greiiburg-'l'ashkend railways as  two immense military arteries through  which our invading legions are lobe,  poured. One of'your military commentators says that the invasion of  India is ths only possible means by  which Russia can hope lo regain her  lost prestige. Thai prestige I may tell  you frankly, is au utterly lost quantity. On the conclusion of tlie war,  Japan will be in possession of Sakhalin. A glance at the map will show-  that any   warlike  possession  of  that  island constitutes a standing menace  our great Amur province. The Japanese being Great Britain's allies, is it  not certain that if our army in Central  Asia assumed a threatening attitude  towards Afghanistan or India, the  Japanese would simultaneously  threaten the Amur province and even  the whole Eastern Siberia ?" He went  on lo say that, whatever plans once  existed for the invasion of India from  Central Asia, they fiad all been dissipated by the unlooked-for result of the  struggle in the Far East, and the sudden rise of the new Asiatic Titan., '  is that John Bull will be a little careful  as to the kind of war he gets into. We  have no young men to waste in foolish quarrels.���Toronto Globe.  A correspondent of the London  Spectator, signing himself Ralph  Richardson, and discussing the position of Great Britain with respect to  food supply in the event of her being  engaged in a European war, quotes  with satisfaction the remark made to  him, apropos of this point, by an  American friend: "You do the lighting; we'll feed you," which he regards  as evidence that "blood is thicker than  water."' We fail to see anything of  sentiment in the American's proposal.  Certainly there was no suggestion of  self-denial, for the price of wheat  would assuredly rise and the American  farmer would make a fine thing out of  the war. The Canadian in the American's place would have said, ���' We'll  feed you and fight with you," which  would have been much more to the  purpose.    All, that John  Canuck asks  At the proposal to readjust the Ottawa salaries there will be no surprise.  The-subject has been under consideration for years, and public opinion has  long favored action that is at once  liberal and fair. It has been felt that  the premier's salary, which was fixed  at its present figure at confederation,  is, in view, first, of the many calls  upon that functionary, and secondly,  of thescaleof .enumeration given in  other departments of life, too small.  An addition will cer-tainly not meet  with adverse criticism. The allowance  to the leader of the opposition of an in-  demnitv equal to that given to a minister of the crown introduces a new  principle, but it is'l not an unjust one.  A leader of the opposition occupies in  parliament a position second only to  that of the first minister. His labor is  very exacting, and it is necessary that  he understands thoroughly the intricacies of all the affairs of government.  While a minister of the crown is required to be familiar with the business  of his own department only, the leader  of the opposition must have a general  knowledge of the operations of ever^'  branch of the administration. The  payment of an indemnity or salary to  the opposition leader may not be according to precedent, but it  will tend  to promote the public interest, because  it will remove the objection to public  service which the sacrifices of public  leadership suggest. Another new proposal is the grant of a small pension  or allowance to ex-cabinet ministers in  accordance with the British practice:  This consideration is due to the office.  The other day one of the fathers of  confederation died after years of  poverty. For this public man the  country should have done something  in recognition of his work. Certainly  he should not have been left without a  livelihood.    In making- this change the  STRIKE AT VOIGT'S CAMP.  only a visit to confirm. Energy and  large sums of money have been spent  on these properties the concrete results from which, aided by the long-  delayed railway, will be beneficial to  the whole country.���Similkameen Star.  An extensiv-: body of high-grade ore  has been struck recently on No. 1  claim, Voigi's camp, Copper mountain.  The character of the ore resembles  Sunset in its best features and will be  easily smelted. This important strike  still further convinces unbiassed mining men that Voig'.'s camp, and in  fact the whole of Copper mountain, is  one of the greatest copper-gold areas  iu the world today. Mr. Voigt is proving the immense mineral area owned  by a companv of which he is the guiding spirit, and keeps a gang of men  continuously at work. A large space  is being cleared for buildings and some  20.000 feet of lumber from Princeton  has been hauled on the grc und ready  for builders.

The premium list, including the race program, is a neater  piece of work than ever before, and is  illustrated with views of last j-ear's  successful fair.

After a lingering illneoa lasting  seven mon ths, .the effect of a severe  attack of typhoid fever, Mrs. E. B.  Dill died at the Sacred Heart hospital  on Tuesday morning last while undergoing an operation.  The funeral was held on Wednesday  afternoon and was attended by a large  number of friends of the deceased. A  very impressive service was held in the  Prespyderian Church by Rev. Mr. McKee, the pastor.'  Mr. and Mrs. Dill came to Greenwood six years ago from Riverside,  California, and have since resided here  with the exception of one year, which  waa spent at Mra. Dill's home in California.  A woman of charming manners, Mrs.  Dill endeared herself to those whose  good fortune it was to become intimate with her. Mr. Dill has the sympathy of the community in hia * bereavement.  R. G. Sidley, J. P., was in the city  Tuesday attending court. It will be  twenty-one years this fall since Mr.  Sidley settled in the Osoyoos district,  taking up a pre-emption on what is  known as Anarchist mountain, about  nine miles from Osoyoos lake. He had  to contend with all the difficulties and  privations of a pioneer's life, working  hard and getting small returns for his  labors in the first ten years. Since  then, owing to the larger market afforded by the increasing population of  of the mining camps, ranching has  been a paying business.

It will not be long until lodges  and other organizations will do as they  do at the big Eastern fairs, and put up  permanent headquarters -on the  grounds. The Women's Christian  Temperance Union leads all the others  in this enterprise in Spokane. This  organization of patriotic and reform  women has decided to erect a neat  little bungalow on the fair grounds.  It will be ready for occupancy before  the fair opens, October 9. It will be a  comfortable rest room for women and  a place where they can meet and where  they will serve refreshments. The  women deserve a great deal of credit  for their enterprise. Other organizations will follow their example.  t Gall  up  Made that resolution to begin the new  year right by buying your Meats, Fish,  Etc.  at the  UNION   MEAT   MARKET.
