OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  ��UR _h_��RK IS GUARANTEES  A. L0GAN & CC  Copper Street Greenwood  NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER  Dominion Copper is a larger mining  enterprise, with more extensively developed mines and better equipment,  than copper share investors in the east  generally believe. It is operating four  mines.of goodly size, and doing development work on, and shipping some  ore from, two or .three others. Its  Brooklyn and Idaho mines, which are  at Phoenix, adjoining the Granby, are  both big mines. A considerable portion of the ore so far developed in the  Idaho, however, is-a little below the  average of the district in grade. There  is some good ore exposed in the Idaho,  and the Brooklyn deposit is practically  identical with that being shipped from  the Granby's big mines.  Another of its mines, which is of especial importance is the Rawhide. It  adjoins the Granby's Gold Drop and the  deepest workings of the latter are in  excellent ore close up to the Rawhide  line. The immense ore deposit in the  Rawhide is being attacked at several  points. It is being mined open cut and  simultaneously developed by tunnels  A lot of jrood ore is in sijrht already,  and the showing can hardly fail to improve decidedly with further development w"ork.  The Sunset property which the company purchased last year because- its  ore catried an excess of iron is developing very favorably The operation  of the shaft which was sunk by the  former owners, and which never was in  main ore body, has beeu discontinued  and about300tons of ore is being mined  daily from to big open pit quarries.  When this property was taken over  the ore extracted contained an average  'of 37 100 of 1 percent copper and 75  cents gold and silver to the ton. Last  months average was 94 100 of 1 per  cent copper and 85 cents gold and  silver.  The Sunset is a hill���some would call  it a. mountain���of ore.' At the surface  and for some distance down, it runs  very high in iron-magnetite. Per  cubic foot, Sunsnt ore probably carries  as much copper as tne company's richest mine; but it would be my estimate  that 9 cubic feet of Sunset oje would  make a ton, while 12 to 13 feet of Brooklyn or Granby ore make a ton. There  fore if the magnetite diminishes with  depth the.percentage of copper in the  ore, per ton weight,'may be expected to  increase, This change has taken place  in some'of the best mines in the district.  The Athel-tan gold mine, which  Dominion Copper, took over some time  ago through an exchange of stock, is not  shipping at present, but it will resume  soon. Its ore is a silicious limestone  which carries $9 to S10 in gold with  about 1 ounce of silver to the ton. The  managemen .^believes this^ore^-can^be.  hatidled at a profit of $4 to $5 per ton.  Speaking in a general way of the  Dominion Copper . mines it cannot  be said that there is a very large tonnage of pre blocked out. There is, however, a great number of faces of ore,  many excellent stopes, some big open  pit quarries and a lot of ore, also that  would measure up into a considerable  tonnage. -  'It must be rememberd that when the  Dominion Copper company was taken  over by Messers. Miller, Mclvin, New-  house and associates it was in a most  deplorable condition. The Montreal &  Boston's management had not money in  sufficient quantity to pay for either advance dereopment work or weeded  equipment. Its properties were limited  in extent and its smalter was a wreck.  Since then several miues have been  bought anddevleopment work begun on  a comprehensive scale.  The decision which was reached immediately aftherwards to repair the smelter  and operate it, proved to be a wise-  one. Though the plant has not been  an economical one, thanks to the 25  cent copper market it has earned the  company a good profit every month it  has been in operation, and has thus  supplied a lot of the money needed for,  the rehabilitation of the property. The  smelter itself has been reconstructed,  piece by piece, and a new furnace of  700 tons daily capacity adde 1, with  the result that it is now handling ore  at only a little higher cost per ton than  the British Columbia and Granby  plants. Like the other smelters, it is  opperated by electric power.  I understand that it is proposed now  to instal a converting plant��� its matte  is now converted by the British Columbia���and to add two more big furnaces, doubling: the capacity of the  plant.    It would seem   that  the   mines  could meanwhile be put in shape to  supply the required'.; .���lcreal.e.i^oKe tonnage, with two more large furnaces'  the company would have a gross capacity of 3,000 tons of ore baily,, and it*'  should be able to treat an average of,  2,000 tons, or 900,000 tons annually;  This would give the coiuptiy a copper  production of 20,000,000 pounds or more  y^cquivalent to 40 pounds for cact^ �� FORMER CREENW0ODiTE  share of its capital stock. Kven at-tlve'  present low prices of copper mining  shares, average-cost copper production  is selling in the market, in company  capitalization, for 50 cents per pound.  It must therfore be conceded Unit Dominion Copper has fntrue possibilities  worthy of serious consideration.  In view of the. celerity ..with   which  the company has been  snatched   from  obscurity and puahedjfu&ward inlQ the  ranks of the |)rodiic.ing",-s's"'-sus*il,r*>r,gi  profit-earning copper mining enter  prises, it is somewht surprising that its  development has gone so far as it has.  1 .vidence that the company has been  earning profits is seen on every hand  incompleted new construction work,  all of which is of a substantial and  permrnent character. Its equipment  is now in shape to doe'conotuicai work;  but until its smelting capacity is again  increased it cannot; be expected to  handle its ore quite; cheaply as the  other companies operating here.  I understand that Dominion Copper  ores are yielding anaverage of 22 to 23  pounds of copper and $1.25 in geld and  silver . On a 20-cen<; copper market,  therfore, they have a gross value of  ��5.65. It is costing the company 31.25  per ton to-thine its ore,'-25 cents freight,  and   about  SI.50    to   smelt.    Add   65  cents for management taxes aud  incidentals,   and   leaves   S2   per   ton  for profit, or 32,400 ; per day on the  average product of 1,200 tons of ore  wiiich it sho-ld be able ;to handle thenceforth, its maximum capacity being  1,500 tons daily. This will mean'net  earnings of 5860,000 annually, cr more  than $1.50 per share ou the company's  stock.  It seems to me that the foregoing estimate is warranted. If* will be noted  thnt I have allowed 2 cents' per pound  for freight east on the bullion, refining  aud selling, making my figures on a 20-  ceut, instead of a 22 cent, copper market. At its present price, I think Dominion copper a good stock to hold,  Speech.at a  Missionary  Meeting- in  Winciiester, England, on. the  "Call of Canada."  JUVENILE BOSTONIANS  A Great Success  Two crowded houses of delighted people greeted the Juvenile  Bostonians in the Auditorium  Wednesday and Thursday evenings,aud saw what they expected,  a first-class organization of Juveniles. The parts were well taken  and the music was good. We predict that some of them will be  heard -frotiH ater-i _ra=l arger-th ea-  trical way.  Barring a little delay between  the acts, there was not a tedious  moment iu either eveniug'samuse-  metit.  The success that has awaited  the troupe iu the Boundary disproves the statement that show  companies sometimes hear that  they shouldn't come any farther  west than Nelson.  The Hampshire Observer of  July 13th, thus reports a .speech  made there by Rev. W. A, Robins  formerly of Greenwood but now  of Bristol, England.  The Rev. W. A. Robins, M A..formerly of tlie dioceseof Kootenay, British  Columbia,"gave an address which was  a kind of word cinematograph of pictures of Colonial life in the recesses of  the Rocky Mountains. In speaking  about Canada, he said the country was  so vast that in the short time at his  disposal he could not tell them all he  wished. Probably not many present  had any idea what western minin'g life  was like.' They must try to imagine to  themselves a vast and dreary expanse  of mountains, smothered in the everlasting pine, huge areas of which were  devasted by incessant forestfires which  made them indt-cribablv dreary. They  must try to picture themselves coming  from a Ionk journey rig-ht up into the  hearts of the mountains, and finding  in that desolate place a clearing where  a larft-e part was taken up by large  stumps of trees, three feet from the.  ground and blackened by the fires, and  there they would see a long, strangling  street���so-called. It consisted of  wooden houses���there was not a stone  or a brick in the place���without a  touch of paint to relieve the monotony,  jumbled together in any way, more or  less straight, the front all higgeldy-  piggeldy, with telegraph and telephone  poles on their fronts, a medley of  modernity and .antiquity. There was  a strange contrast, wildness, and fierce  isolation all round, and in the center  was this life, te .ming with all kinds of  interest. Everything was most up-to-  date. The men were in possession of  the latest news, there was a daily paper  ���or rag, as they used to cal! it-- and by  means of the telegraph they kept in  touch with all the markets of the world  They lived most extraordinarily keen,  active, and up-to-date lives,with the  telegraph, the telephone, and the elec  trie light. The movement of thought  was mote rapid than the movement of  body, for the latter was rather slow  Transportation was one of the difficulties.   In the streets there were the men  such  INTERESTING-AXIl l*'AsCINA.'Cn*TG  CRT.A.T1IRKS  ���when one got to know them, perfect  ly splendid instances   of  sheer   virgin  soil  as  regards  human    n ature.     It  was human  in   the   raw,     One  of   the  most fascinating things in   the  world  There one got it, and   got  it  straight.  That was the sort of  place he  started  iu.    He was sorry to say that as   usual  .t .lie-Gh tt_ch_o__J3 iigla.ucUwas JasUji^he  field there.    He hired a dancing saloon  THLSE GO FISHING  E. B. Dill, Jake Saunders, Austin Logan and Al Morrison left  on Sunday morning last for a ten  days outing on the Kettle River.  They claim they know all the  pools on the river where the big  fish lie and were prepared for all  kinds of sport. Whether they  realize the results they had figured out before leaving remains to  be seen, but we would'nt advise  anyone to cancel an engagement  on the river juts because this  quartette got off ahead of them.  There will be fish left when they  get through. If the trout rise to  the flies they took, some of, them  gay as a picture hat aud as large  as a feather duster they're easy,  but that is what the boys want.  at the rate of ��f> per month, but h"  could only have it one day a week and  that was on Sunday. *' He got a packing case to use as a desk and scrubbed  it himself, and that served as an altar  .Not many years ago���not leu���lie held  his.first service there, and an enormous  crowd of men wanted to hear what o the  strange preacher was like. These men  were, people who marked one down nnd  wanted to sample one tlie moment one  arrived. After the'set vice was over he  tookdown names, and called for voltin  teers for the choir, and then held jirac  tices. The.se men helped him through  the hard times, aud they were the nti  cletts of one of the soundest bodies of  men he had ever met in his life. Then  began a woik which meant in five  years a church and a parish room with  a neat fence round them, and in a clear,  ing in a virgin forest -a difficult thing  to do because it meant blasting--"  cemetery was made and consecrated by  the Bishop, a reverent place co lay the  dead instead of burying them in an old  box by the side of the road, and it was  something reminiscent of home. That  work spread over ail the mountain, up  apply for a   faculty  when   he  wanted  to do anything; he had to do  it   in five  minutes or it was not done  at  all. 'He  could not apply for help to the  nearest  parish priest,  because  he -was too far  away.    Parish   boundaries   out    there  were rather  extensive.    He   had none  at all on the   north side,   while  to  the  south the boundary.' was the American  boundary.   There was no  background  of history, no trsdition, no prestige, or  anything  of  that sort,  and   therefore  there was nothing to appeal to the meu  through.    There  was   very   little  distinction between right or   wrong,  and  there was no tone.    They could not appeal to a man out there  on   a  question  because the word was not known as he  and that meeting  knew   it.    Over and  above  all   they   had   this   magnificent  character to deal with���men in the raw,  on whome  one  could   not  pass off  an  old    sermon   because  they   would   not  have it.    That was what made it worthwhile   talking  to  them.    The   Colony  was nothing but a crowd of   men when  ho went there, but he was glad   to say  that women were now  coming in   and  ameliorating  the   conditions.     These  meu   were   hard  thinkers:    education  was very much more advanced  than it  was at   home; Winchester   boys  were  out there work ing in the mines as well  as others.     They  wanted    something  pretty sound,   keen, and   good   in   sermons, or they would   not  come  to   the  church at all.   The worst men   to  deal  with were those   called    "remittance  men.'7  These were public school  boys  who had gone to Canada���to  Manitoba  and ha vemade, a   mess of  things and  lost all they*had, and.then had come up  into the Rocky Mountains. -There they  were face to face for the first time with I j^[r> ^  the hardest condition of things.    They  had got so low that they could not look  down any   more:   they   must  look up.  Religion to them while here in  England meant something which was practically     conventional.      They    never  worried aboul it, and never  realized a  personal Lord at all.    By  dogged  per-  scverence and  love  they   were  got to  realize this, and generally  A MEKl! TOUCH Ol' ENGLISH LIFE  was    a   good   thing   towards    accomplishing this end.    He us tts.d   to give  lectures on the South A.fricatt war when  that was on, and that was a  matter in  which they were most interested,   because thirty of the men  joined Strath-,  cona's Horse.   Th is all helped his work,  It was magnificent material whichths-  raen afforded to deal  with,   but it  required enormous patience on the part of  the'worker.   "Mere touches of home lite  won these men, and for the   first  time  iu their lives they heard   the cull of a  personal Savior, and thev came nearer  to the alter, and the missionary felt  it  was worth    while  going   out  there   to  get it..    The circumstances  of  life out  there  were   very   unconventional, and  friendships were made and maintained  in the tit!;-; accidental fashion.-'   He related how one man who  steadfastly re  fused to come   to   his  Sunday service,  cheerfully undertook ihedtity of sweeping out Ihechtireh on Saturday.    These  men loved the Church of England, and  out ol their Une lo the old church they  were mosl kind to  her   representative.  Hut   they   were  critical,   and    if  they  thought so they did  not hesitate to*tell  him thai-he preached a   rotten   sermon  on She previous Sunday''   The home life,  was a nother chapter,   and   the   homes  of the Canadian's   were   royal   homes.  In theni  he   learnt   for   the  first   time  what hospitality   meant.     There   was  none of  the K iglish  pride  tlu-re, biit  there   was  deal,, of   the   liritish   pride,  which   was   r.illier. s    diiferent   thing.  -Eng-lish-pri.ie-wa^a^iMy-ihiiig^Britlsh,  pride meant love of country and   love  of God, which made patriot ism aud love  of  church.     The  self-denial   in these  Canadian homes was amnziiig.    'There  were only forty of them, but they gave  their pastor ,{,"240a year, and they never  gave  icss  than   ��M or ,/,'-10 a  yea-  to  to   foreign   missions.  (Applause)    The  church  there stood  on   her merits.    It  was not est,iblished: it was ju-.t one  of  lhe .-.eoU, and a very good thing for her  too. The minister was called a preacher,  and lie had lo stand aud do the best he  could (in these grounds.    Hut they saw  wonderful results'in the formation and  making of character.    The  great cry  was for help of the  best   kind.    These  people out llMr  were   making   history  far faster than we in this count-y.

A united opinion favorable to  the road means its immediate  building, a united opinion unfavorable means the sudden death of  tlie   project,   a   divided opinion'  means delay.  QIf the partj has time to thoroughly consider ,the resources  that would become available to  the road's support we look for' a  consensus of .opinion that means  more 'to this .entire section than  any single enterprise that might  be undertaken.

The church was  filled to overflowing, a number  of friends of the deceased coming  from Phoenix and the OddfeJloW-i  and Rebekah lodges attending in  a body. On Monday morning  the remains were taken to Midway for shipment to peridleton,  Oregon, for interment.  A large number of Greenwood  people attended the family as far  as Midway.

T'ne pe.sistea.ly reported shortage from all parts ol" the country,  .oii-h-l one thing and then another necessary to carry oti tlie  country's business, leads one to  ask whether or not the rapid set-  tlemeut and industrial development of the country rnaj- not iii  large measure be responsible for  the same. The railroads claim  to be tucuiug out locomotives and  cars at the  maximum  rate.    But  ���***  . '   " -   .  the' shortage continues.    Now it  is    a   cry   for   transportation  of  wood   and   now of lumber.    Coal  and coke are slow   in   moving  to  smelting   plants   ancl   ever   aud  anon the mines cry out   for  more  ore cars.    Wheat moves too slowly -to suit the holder and the merchant in the west complains that  his shipments are  long  overdue.  While there may he too much fuel  transported out  of  the  county,  while without doubt car's are frequently detained at   the delivery  point and'while possibly railroad  managements   may    have    been  tardy in recognizing local  needs,  there can be little doubt that the  remarkable expansion of the  last  few years is in part the cause   of  the want of despatch that  marks  the   movement   of   commodities.  This is.certainly Canada's  growing time.    The northwest  is  be-  northwest conies and who cannot  get the material is naturally dis-  satislied. They whose fuel supplies are exhausted ind who can-  riot get them replenished readily  grow apprehensive. The mining  companies who cannot get ores  to the smelter and the smelting  industries that are obliged to lose  from 25 to 50 per cent of their  normal yearly capacity for want  of ore ancl fuel grow restive and  reasonably so. And so the roar  for coal, and coke and cars, for  wood and wheat goes up from all  parts of the country. The fact  that the conditions do not appear  to be improving suggest that the  growth and consequent demand  of the country must be largely  responsible. Has the country's  advance been too rapid for the  railways, largely responsible in  the first instance f or the ad vance?  Has the new west come to it's own  faster than even the dreamer  dreamed? But answer the problem as Ave may, the fact remains,  the unhappy fact, that the development of the west and its great  resources is retarded by want-of  facilities for doing things on the  scale the west wants to do them.  Whether anybody is culpable or  not is another question.  Jnst the slighest flavor of delicious autumn in the air, but enough  to make one feel assured that the  season of sunlit days and frosty  nights will not be overdue.  Mr. Jones became insane and was  coniiiied in an asylum for tlie insane.  Upon recovering- he was given t certificate of his sanity, and left the asylum and returned to his home. Sho rtly  after this Mr. Jones, while at a plottjjh-  ing--bee, entered into a h_ated -.recti  ment with one of a large crowd that  were listening-to thecontroversy, when  Jones' opponent said, '"Oh, you are  crazy anyway." Jones then looked  puzzled, and, with afrowti on his face,  said, "Look here, young man, 1 want  you to understand that I am the only  one in the crowd who can produce a  certificate that he is not cra:.y."  <jOOOOO<><>00<K)OOOOOOOObOO*-00  Lord Curzon's criticism was  quite severe when he said that the  Colpnial Office was "made up'of  permanent ollieials, many of whom  had never set eyes on the colonies  they administered."  When :. man's appetite calls for  two potatoes and only one is forthcoming he realizes a want, and  when a smelter manager is obliged to eurtail his capacity a half  for no fault of his own he naturally wants to kick.  John Edgar Ryan, a staunch  unionist, stirred np things in the  telegraph world when he wired  his message to Mrs. Sadie Nichols  a non-unionist in West Oakland,  accusing her of taking a union  man's place. He lost his job for  his message but out of it grew the  walk-out of thousands, from  ocean to ocean, and a consequent  loss of millions to the country.  ."Yas," said Mrs. Lapsing-," my  husband enjoyed his trip ever so much.  He says the train he traveled on had  the finest buffoon car he ever saw iu  liis life.  WHEN A FASHION IS KILLED.  When Garments' ar.  Seen at  Every  Corner and Get Popular  AROUND THE WORLD  Jules Verne's Story Discounted  Popularity is t)ie surest way to kill a  style or fashion. Men who :Tire exclusive in their garments, those who have  taste and originality, discard modes  as soon as they become popular. They  demand that their garments be original  and titedto theirpeciiliarindividuality.  Stj'le, to them, is a secondary consideration v  In overcoats, when one wants something distinctive and different the new  French Chesterfield or the Imperial  overcoat in the Semi-Ready Wardrobe  offers both good taste and originality.  Like all the garments tailored by the  Semi-Ready Company these overcoats,  are of exclusive design and have the  advantage of being uncommon. S25 is  the prevailing price, though one may  get330 and S35 quality in the same  styles.  CONTRACTOR  AND BUILDER  Dealer   in    Sash,   Doors,  Turned  Work  and  Inside.

They came, in two squads,  first the men connected with, the  great daily papers of the cities  and then meu connected with the  more important provincial papers.  They-were sent from ocean to  ocean under the hospitable chap-  eronage of our great transcontinental railway. They saw what  their hosts had the right to decree they should see���the larger  cities, the broad expanse of the  prairies, the towering mountains  and the forests clown by the Pacific.

My answer is that I made the  ���journey for two reasons���one that  I might see the two great iron  roads of the world, viz: the Canadian Pacific and the Transsiber-  iau Railways, ancl by them.cross  over the two vast continents of  Canada and Russia; the other  other that I might perhaps be  able to add a new time record to  the circling of the world.

The use of .Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer  satisfies the natural desire for a mild stimulant  without creating a habit for strong drink. In  countries where the most beer is consumed, intemperance is rarest.  'Tne Beer of Quality  is so rich in the food values of Pabst Eight-Day  Malt, and in the tonic properties. of the choicest  hops, that it is a genuine health-builder.  The system frequently requires a mild stimulant,  which is supplied by the small percentage of alcohol  which produces no injurious effects. The extractives of malt and hops aid the digestion and  soothe the nerves, making Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer  the ideal temperance drink.  When ordering heer, ask  for  Pabst  Blue' Ribbon.

The  Trail smelter   had   been   taking  ore right along and now   all   the  bins were full and ore was stacked  up in the yards, meaning an  additional cost in re-handling, leav-  no- alternative to the  smelter   in  taking fresh ores but to run them  straight to the furnaces and roasters.-   This meant   that   if  some  relief were not immediately given  to the situation the Trail smelter  would have to stop   buying   custom ores.  The reason assigned for the  blowing out of the furnaces is the  sh ortage of coke.���Nelson News.
