Leading Men in New Company Visit Boundary.  EXTENSIVE  OPERATIONS  Will Be Commenced at Once  Strong  Company.  MIDWAIAMERM  Boundary's third big mining company is getting ready to mine and treat  ore on a large scale. After many  trials and tribulations, financial and  otherwise, there has emerged out of  the conflict a new Dominion Copper  company, on a safe, sure and permanent basis. The company has the  properties, the necessary capital, and  what is equally important, has men  behind it who have proved eminently  successful in the Icopper mining world  elsewhere, and who begin operations  in the Boundary fully convinced that  they oan make success here. In the  new company are some of those who  invested in the ill-fated Montreal &  Boston.- At their head is Senator  Werner Miller, who is now president  of the Dominion Copper company. He  and a number of his associates came  from New York to examine the properties of the company and arrange for  the resumption of mining and smelting operations. They -arrived in  Phoenix on Monday in their private  car, which was attached to the regular  Great Northern train. They visited  the Brooklyn and Stemwinder and  other properties ot the companv on  Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning and drove to Greenwood. After  luncheon at' the Imperial hotel the  party visited the company's smelter at  Boundary Falls and returned to Phoenix the same evening. In the party,  in addition to Senator Miller, were:  Samuel Newhouse, one of the largest  copper operators in Colorado and  Utah. In the latter state he" has an  extensive smelter plant at Newhouse���  a model town in which he takes considerable pride and interest. Alvin  Untermeyer and his" nephew, Alyin,  Untermeyer, jr.. Mr. Untermeyer is a  brother of the famous New York  lawyer, who probed the difficulties in  connection with the Munroe & Munroe failure, and who is largely inter  ested in the new company. Mr. Wnter-  meyer is also the Guggenheime's legal  representative. John M. Shaw, the  treasurer of the Dominion Copper com-  pahy^is'a-memberof'the-banking-tirm'  of J. M. Shaw & Co., New York; M.  M Johnson is consulting engineer for  the company, and it was he who ex-  perted the properties before-the reorganization took- place ; ��Wm. Milne  Donald, a member of the New York  Stock Exchange, is heavily interested  in the new company, as is also J. C.  Marion of New York. W. C, Thomas,  the new manager, accompanied the  party and will remain her-: to take  personal charge of operations.  Mr. Johnson makes his home in Salt  Lake City, but his profession keeps  him traveling a good part of the time.  He expects to return here in a short  time.  In the meantime active work will be  commenced at the mines and the  smelter at Boundary  Falls blown in.  The management has not yet decided whether a new smelter is to be  erected or the old one enlarged. In  any event the third furnace will be  put in place and the smelter used until  such time as a decision will be arrived at.  The organization of such a strong  company, comprised of the most successful copper men in America, means  much for the Boundary. With the  Granby soon treating 3,000 tons a day  and continually enlarging; with the  B. C. Copper company extending its  operations, and with the development  of the properties of the Dominion Copper company and the treatment of its  ores in its own smelter, the Boundary  will materially strengthen its position  as one of the most important copper  producing districts in the world today.  E. B. Dill left this, week for Nelson,  where he will visit for a month.  Chief Engineer LackieTakes  Charge of Construction  WESTBRIDGE THIS YEAR  Railway Will Be Completed to Vernon  Next Summer.  A. R.F. Lackie of Baltimore, chief  engineer of the Midway and Vernon,  arrived from the coast Tuesday evening, accompanied by Ralph Smailes.  Mr. Lackie has full charge of construe--  tion matters. He will arrange for the  immediate construction of, the line* as  far as Westbridge. He intends leaving for Vernon over the proposed route  of the railway next week. Mr. Lackie  has had a long and varied experience  as a railway engineer. He is a native  of Mount Forest, Ont., and got his *  first actual experience on the construction of the C. P. R. along the north  shore of Lake Superior. After successfully carrying out some heavy  work in Baltimore and vicinity, he  went to Central America, where vhe  constructed railways under great difficulties, both as regards labor and'Climate. He considers British Columbia  a delightful change, after the fever-  laden atmosphere of Central America.  The McLean Bros, have sub-let the  greater portion of the first ten miles of  the Midway and Vernon and considerable grading has already been done.  .As soon as'Mr. Lackie gets his staff "  organized, further contracts will be  let. Messrs Arthur and Cain, who  represent the New York capitalists  who are financing the construction of'  the road, are expected here early in*  Seotember.  Another novelty, which will be a real  attraction has been added to those already promised for the Spokane Interstate Fair, which is held this year'  from October.9 to 15. It is a farmer's  race for a $100 purse. It is given by  the Pacific Live Stock Association of  Spokane for teams driven by the  owner and drawing four-wheeled vehicles. EJach team must be owned by  the party entering same at least six  months prior to the fair. Horses which  have run in professional races will be  barred. The race will be half mile  heats, best two in thrce7'trot or pace or,  both; The race will be for overnight  entries and the purse will be divided  50,i2S,_l5_andJ0_per_cent.__No_entrauce_  fee will be charged. It is not yet announced what day this race will be  given. It will be one of the most interesting contests a I the Fair, for the  formers of the luland Empire have  plenty of good driving teams.  A Warning to Mothers.  Too much care cannot be used with  small children during the hot weather  of the summer months to guard against  bowel troubles. As a rule it is only  necessary to give the child a dose of  castor oil to correct any disorder of  the bowels. Do not use any substitute, but give it the old-fashioned  castor oil, and see that it is fresh, as  rancid oil nauseates and has a tendency to gripe. If this does not check  the bowels give Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and  then a dose of castor oil, and the disease may be checked in its iucipiency  and all danger avoided. The castor  oil and this remedy should be procured  at once and kept ready for instant use  as soon as the firsc indication of any  trouble appears. This is the most successful treatment known and may be  relied upon with implicit confidence  even in cases of cholera infantum. For  sale by all druggists.

The Vernon News and the  Hedley Gazette in recent issues  discuss the dismissal of A. H.  Wade from the position of postmaster at Pentieton, and charge  Duncan Ross, M. P., with favoring -what is popularly known as  the spoils system. The News  states the case as follows :  The recent dismissal of A. H. Wade  from the position of postmaster at  Pentieton furnishes a most glaring ex-  ' ample of the pernicious spoils system  in connection with the distribution of  political patronage, aud is a t;ross  violation, not only of every principle  of ordinary justice but of the elements  of common decency.  Mr. Wade has been a faithful servant of the postoffice department for  twenty years, during that time his  performance of the duties of his office  has been marked by the highest efficiency and the strictest integrity, all  his official superiors are willing to  testify most emphatically to his fitness  for the position, there never has been  a word of complaint as to dereliction of  duty, ancl the esteem with which he-is  regarded by the community . is' sufficiently evidenced by the fact that out  of a possible 125, 115 names were  signed to a petition asking for the retention of his services,  Those unacquainted with the depths  of pettiness to which an unscrupulous  politician will descend iu order ' to  throw a.sop, to the ravening pack of  of party heelers and office-seekers who  surround him, will find it difficult to  believe that', with all these things to  be said in his favor, Mr. Wade was actually dismissed because he moved the  postoffice from his old building to his  new store. And this, in spite of the  fact that Posloffice Inspector Greenfield approved of the proposed change  and had recommended the department  that it be made.  If this is the way Duncan Ross, M.  P., commences his career as a public  man, he will have a great many awkward questions to answer and a great  deal of righteous indignation to face  when he appeals to his constituents for  reelection. Even the most rabid parti  san, if possessed of any sense of fairness at all, must condemn such an unjustifiable act, and the larger proportion of voters who are governed by  reason and right will have no hesitation in giving very pointed- ancl practical expression to their views on the  subject.  The matter referred to by these  Tory journals does not interest  the readers of the Boundary Creek  Times, except in so far as effort  is made to fasten on the government and the representative for  Yale-Cariboo a policy not warranted by the facts. Even if the  charge were true and Mr. Wade  Wade were dismisssd for partisan  reasons, neither the Gazette nor  the News "would have good  grounds for complaint. They be-  ong to a party which "after the  general elections of 187JS" ruthlessly dismissed competent civil  servants because they were Liberals. They belong to a party  which, iu the province of Ontario  today, is dismissing civil servants  whose only crime is that they are  Liberals, and they belong to a*  party which in British, Columbia  has dismissed compeuteut men to  make wa}-- for incompetents whose  only claim for position was that  they were bitter Tory partisans.  . What are the facts in connection with the dismissal of Mr.  Wade? Earl}*- in the ja^r the  Okanagan Land company, which  recently acquired the Ellis estate,  started a new townsite immediately above the old town of Pentieton. Mr, Wade, who was a.general. ���'merchant as., well 'as  postmaster, erected a store build-  in g^in^th _"-n e w"to\v ir=-pre par a-tory-  to removing there. Those who  were interested iu tlie old town-  site were naturally afraid that an  effort would be made to remove  the postoffice to the uew townsite  and wrote the member stating  that the people of Pentieton were  opposed to the removal of the  postoffice' from the old town.  They were informed that no application had been made to the  postmaster-general for the removal of the postoffice. Should  such au application be made it  would be considered on its merits.  On May 4th, Mr. Ross wrote  the following letter to the deputy  postmaster-general :  Dkar Doctor Coui.tkk : I am advised that an application will be made  for the removal of the postoffice at Pentieton to the new townsite. I would  deem it a favor if no action lie taken  in connection with this matter without  consulting me. I take this precaution  because I understand that while the  present postmastei is a strong Conservative, he is also a strong personal  friend of the posto'lic. inspector. 1  do not want any action taken, as a  strong protest has reached in��* against  the removal.    Yours very truly,  Duncan .-"oks.  Ou May Sth he received the following reply:  My Dkak Mh. Ross : With reference  to your letter of the 4th inst. on the  subject of a proposed change in the  site of the Pentieton postoffice and requesting that no action be taken in  the matter without consulting yOu, 1  beg to state that no steps will be taken  in a matter of this  kind   without  first  learning yonr views in regard to it.  Yours truly,  R. M. Coulter,  Deputy Postmaster-General.  Mr. Ross heard nothing further about the matter until June  9th, when he received the following telegram :  PknTJcTon, 13. C, June 9th, 1905-  Duncan Koss, M. P., Ottawa: Citizens' meeting has resolved to inform  you that postoffice was removed to new  townsite yesterday.  Mr. Ross immediately saw the  deputy postmaster-general and  protested against the department  giving cousent for the removal of  this postoffice without consulting  him, as stated in his letter of  May Sth, aud he-was informed  that that the department had  never received an application for  the removal of this postoffice,  that the postoffice (had been  moved without the consent-of the  department and that he (Dr,  Coulter) would wire the postmaster immediately ordering that  the postoffice be removed back  again to the old Site. Up to that  time, the postoffice department  had. never received either from  the postoffAc inspector nor-'Mr.  Wade any notification regarding  the removal of the postoffice, but  it afterwards transpired there  was correspondence of a personal  uature between Mr. Wade aud  the postoffice inspector. Regarding this * correspondence,  neither postmaster-general nor  the member was advised. Mr.  Wade, who has beeu postmaster  for fifteen years, and is not lacking in intelligence, did know  that no postoffice could be removed without the cousent of the  postmaster-general. _ That coh-  _eut was never asked for nor  granted and when he refused to  remove the postoffice back again  .until such time as the application for removal-could be considered, there was no alternative  left but dismissal. The people  of the old town of Pentieton had  rights as well as Mr. Wade aud  the Okanagan Laud company.  They were promised by the member for Yale-Cariboo that those  rights would be protected and  that promise wns kept. Mr. Wade  has only himself to blame for his  dismissal. It surely cannot be  contended that Mr. Wade is a  privileged person, not amenable  to well-known rules of the pastor'fiee department. If postmasters  were allowed to remove postoffices  "without~tlie "conseuTof "life "postmaster general, the convenience  of the public iu whose interests  postoffices are established would  often be sacrificed iu the interest  of the townsite boomer and land  company promoter.  3$  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  <F*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  Capital, all paid up, $14,0.00,000.

To the Editor of the Times.  Dkar Sir : I beg to refute the statement made in the last issue of your  paper that Mr. O. Lund ''is now producing wealth as the paid lecturer of  the Socialists," and ''living off.the  earnings of hard-working men."  As secretary of Greeuwood Socialist  Local No. 9, I beg for information re  who the socialists and laborers are that  paid Mr. Lund for his services here.  I i_e_r to also inform you that Mr.  Lund did nor receive one cent of Eocal  No. 9's money for speaking here in  Greenwood.  Re the probability of Mr. Lund's  better service to humanity on the end  of a 7-foot saw than the vocation he  is now following (free gratis) is only a  matter of difference of opinion.  Frankly, the opinion of the writer is  that Mr. Lund is now employing hiitf"-  self at the most meritorious work ever  conceived by the human r;iiif��, namely,  establishing the brotherhood of man  and the practice of the greatcomtnand-  ment, " Whatsoever ye would that men  should do unto you, do ye even so unto  them."    Sincerely yours,  Abe. Hahbekg.  Greenwood, B. C, Aug. 21, 1901.  The writerof the local  item in last  week's issue of the Times, as a union  man for over twenty vers, aud a*  charter member of one of the first  trades unions on the mainland of Brit-  is Columbia, thought -it his duty to  warn younger unionists to. look well  into the previous acts of lecturers on  labor questions before placing too  much faith in their present utterances.  From an officer of Socialists Local  No. 9 it is learned that a number of  books, entitled ."The Four Orphans,"  were purchased, from Mr.- Lund for 15  cents each. The books were being sold  last Sunday by an officer of Local No.  9 at 50 cents each. This disposes of  the statement that Lund "did not receive one cent of Local No. 9's money."  Perhaps Mr. Hallberg had not heard of  the purchase.  Perhaps we are all too ready to quote  the particular Commandment that  suits our purpose, and too slow.in putting it into practice. It is inconceivable that, the "great Commandment"  can b.e practically exemplified by buying a book for 15 cents and selliug it  for 50 cents, a profit of 333^ percent,  even if the object is "establishing the  brotherhood of man."  Should^they gain control of the government of the country, little bnt  graft could be expected of a party  whose theory is "universal brotherhood" and whose practice is 333>_ per  cent profit. If book-peddling on Sunday at 333J. per cent profit is practical  Socialism, the sooner unionists drop  it the better for unionism.  A little forethought may save you  no end of trouble. Anyone who makes  it a rule to keep Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy at  hand knows this to be a fact. For sale  by all druggisfs.  Try Galloway Bros, for fresh fruits.

The commercial value of Monazite  '���Vv-^^^KS^-SSg-SS^s^  1/  f*��"  y.     -t  f  Compressed air under a pressure of  fifty pounds per square inch can be  used to advantage in cleaning dynamos  Until lately tin ores were considered  rare in Peru, but later discoveries are  proving a wider dissimulation of the  metal than -svas .\t first suspected.  Mount Hood of Oregon was at one  time an active volcano, lava being  found on its slopes and at some distance from its base,  The University of  Heidelberg, Germany, whose graduates number many  "famous men, was founded   in  1836, by  Elector Rupert I.  A so called "kangaroo jig" with a  capacity of 35 tons per hour and treating material from >_in. ring down.Js  being experimented with in the testing  works of the Arizona Copper company  It is generally known that in a tunnel or airway the air is not passing  every point at the same velocity. The  velocity -will be greater in the center  of the opening than at the sides, roof  or floor.  If a crucible full of metal is allowed  to cool, the temperature falls regularly  until the melting point is reached, and  then stays constant, or nearly so, for  some time while the metal is  setting.  There can be no objection to placing  for or six water wheels on one shaft,  but it would not be advisable to so place  three or any odd number of turbines.  An unbalancpd end thrust which would  thus be produced, is likely to give  taouble.  The introoiiction of cold water into  boilers���especially shell boilers���is lhe  cause of weakening and subsequent  explosion. Feed-water heaters are not  only economical from a commercial  point of view, but constitute an element of safety.  Low working costs are not always  indicative cf the best management.  The cost per ton might be increased  and yet the dividends be increased at  the same time. Improvements in ore  sorting, or niillihg, or smelting might  ensily be accountable for such an  anomaly.  In sampling an ore vein it is.best to  use a moil and hammer and cut a  groove across the section of the vein  at right angles to the strike. .Under  ordinary conditions, where the vein is  not wider than ten feet, a groove three  to four inches wide and one inch deep  will suffice.  France requires about 90,000 tons of  sulphur a year, which is used largely  in connection with the preservation of  its grapevines. As the American sulphur is 99.9 per cent pure, it can easily  compete with the Sicilian sulphur. It  can -easily compete with the Sicilian  sulphur in price also, and its export  hasalready caused considerable anxiety  among the Sicilian producers.  It has undoubtedly been established  that explosives of different kinds may  be classifitd according to velocity' of  detonation, the length and duration of  the flame, and the neat disengaged in  the_exp1osion.^ It has also been proved  due to the presence of thoria, which is  used in the manufacture of the mantles ��� jj$ QITTI Nf* A _**?f_ 11 f_F_  for the Welsbach and other incandes- '��.' >J* ��� 'Mn-U .ARvlJl-.JLJ1  cent gaslights. The. Welshbach light  consists of a cylindrical hood or  mantle composed of a fibrous network  of the rare earths, the top of which is  drawn together and held by a loop of  platinum wire. The exact composition of the hoods is not generally  known, as it is a trade secret, but they  are composed largely of thoria. A  portion of the cerium obtained in the  reduction of. the monazite is prepared  for market in the form of the oxalate  and is used in the drug trade.  Sand   is   constantly- forming   from  the   disintegration   of  rocks.    Unless  rocks are of a silicious character, their  disintegrated  grains   pass  into   mud,  ���end  sands  are therefore  almost  universally   quartzose.     If   much   mixed  with clayey  and calcareous particles,  the composition is known as marl, and  a coarse mixture of sand  and   pebbles  is known as graval.    Along  the banks  of rivers, of lakes'and of the seashore,  sand predominates w.shed clean of the  muddy particles which were assooiated  with "it.    The sand is thrown up by the  waves on the beach  and  is carried inland  by   the   winds,   where hills  and  dunes*, ard created.    In   ancient  geological periods the same causes that now  produce the  widespread layers of sand  were in continual operation, the result  of which is seen   in   the vast  beds of  silicious particles  occurring in  all the  formations, but consolidated into solid  rock.  thai there is no such thing as n. flame-  less explosive, but the persistence of  the flame of many explosives is small  in comparison with others. This persistence is probably a question of  pressure.  The actual cutting bit of a diamond  drsll is called the bit or crown. The  black diamonds are set around the  periphery of the bit, alternating on  the outor and inner edges. Holes are  bored iu the bit to receive the stones  which are held in place hy caulking  the metal of the bit closely around  them. Soft copper is sometime, used  to properly embed,the diamond. In  the finished bits the stones project  from the bit both laterally and downward, thus making an annular cntting  which gives a solid  undisturbed core.  Another theory of the formation of  coal and mineral oils suggests the action of microbes as responsible for the  transformation of vegetable growth  ���into combustible minerals. Of course  this cannot be proved owing to the impossibility of reproducing exactly the  conditions under which coal is formed,  but the theory explains very satisfac  torily the formation of a number of  coal deposits. The evolution of carbon  monoxide, carbon dioxide and marsh  gas is supposed to be the result of  microbe action, and to indicate the  changing vegetable matter irto com  bu.tible minerals.

Deceased  had been in ill health since last June,  and had spent much of the time in the  hospital, where a serious operation was  performed. The patient had rallied  and was apparently sufficiently recovered to admit of her removal to her  home two weeks before her death. She  appeared to be progressing favorably  until Thursday night, when she was  seized with a severe attack of nervousness. On Friday she rallied, but grew  weaker towards evening and' at 6:30  peacefully passed away.  The funeral was held Monday, proceeding from the house to the Methodist church, where, a short service was  held, Rev. J.P D. Knox, of Rossland,-  who was her pastor here for four years,  officiating. From the church the cortege proceeded to the C. P. R. depot*  from' which point the remains were  sent to Regina for interment. The, bereaved husband accompanied the remains.  The ehurch was beautifully decorated with flowers and appropriately  draped with white. Conspicuous among  the numerous floral offerings were a  mounted lyre from the Methodist congregation and choir, a cross and  crewn from the Epworth League, and  an anchor from the I. O. G. T.  Deceased will be much missed in  Greenwood social circles. She was an  active member of the Methodist church  and a; faithful worker in choir and  league. Her place will be hard indeed  to fill. The sympathy of the entire  community goes out to the. husband in  his sad bereavement.  The late Mrs. Petch was born at  Grand Valley, Ontario, thirty-five  years ago. She came to Greenwood  several years ago and with her sister,  Mrs, F.-'H. McKenzie, engaged in the  McKenzie-Hambly millinery business.  In 1900 she married: Mr. B. F. Petch,  and since the removal of her sister to  Regina has carried on the business  here.  She leaves, beside her husband, her  parents who, with a brother and sister,  reside near London/Ont., a brother,  Dr.. S. Hambly of Detroit, and her  sisters, Mrs. F. H. McKenzie and Miss  EdithHamblyofRegina.   Colic and Diarrlioea���A Remedy that  is Prompt and Pleasant.
