Call and see them.  spring  (food  W. ELSON  __-.  J  For weeks past both political  parties and tbecouutry generally,  have been disturbed by certain  undefined allocations attributed  to Geo. W. Fowler, member -for  King's, New Brunswick. It has  been said of him that he had  made charges against members of  the Government, and members of  the house which seriously reflected upon their honor. The  Conservative press, anxious to  make party capital, exaggerated  the incident, and made it appear:  that what amounted merely to  suggestion or insinuation, was in  reality a direct accusation.  In the heat of the debate -Mr.  Fowler had employed the words  women, wine and graft, but that  gentleman, although impulsive,  impetuous and aggressive, was  courageous enough to approach  the verge of accusation, but had  good sense and sound discretion  to retain his self-control, and not  assume a position which might  become untenable. However,  everything left unsaid and undone by Mr. Fowler -was promptly  supplied by the opposition press  throughout the country, and the  result has been a period of unrest  and uncertainty as to the exact  details of the incident.  BOURASSA THE  PURIST.  At this juncture there obtrudes  himself into the 2rena one Henry  Bourassa, member for Labelle,  who recognizes in the incident  an opportunity to pose before the  people as a purist of the "Holier  than thou" type. This bombastic, self-constituted censor ^ of  Canadian public- life,-.acclaims,  himself the custodian of the public conscience,, and assumes a Divine right to purify the political  atmosphere.  This spectacular political opportunist, announced his intention of bringing -the Fowler incident before the house, and on  Tuesday he was given an opportunity by Sir Wilfrid_ Laurier, In  his opening observations he said:  "I wish to say that the motive  which impels me. to bring this  matter again before the house, is  one which I think will commend  itself to my colleagues. I may,  perhaps, be able to claim that I  have some advantage in presenting this matter, inasmuch as the  future and the fate of .either political party, as at present constituted, is utterly indifferent to  me."  Here is an alleged Liberal  openly stating that even if his  action involves the destruction of  the Liberal party, to which he  says-he-belongs,-he is-indifferent.-  The house received this statement  with manifestations of disapproval, but .when the gentleman  proceeded to say that a saw-off  had been arranged between Mr.  Fowler and Sir Wilfrid' Laurier,  disapproval expressed itself in  vigorous groans and hisses.  Mr. Bourassa expressed his  great anxiety that certain members of the house should prefer  charges against certain other  members. Speaking for himself,  he said he might be asked the  question, "Why do you not make  a charge yourself? Why do you  net take the risk?" His reply to  this was that:  "I am not going to give to the  government or to the opposition  a chance of making me the scapegoat in this matter."  This confession was received  by both sides of the house with  jeers and cries of "Oh, oh."  Continuing    he   said   he   had  heard rumors of wrongdoing on  the part of members of the house.  He had heard this on  the street  and in the corridors of the house,  but personally he did not possess  any information an the subject.  This was a strange statement for  him ' to   make,   for   only  a  few  weeks ago he uttered a grave insinuation against the  honor of a  public man who was not in his  seat  at  the time.    Thus it was  that  this   purveyor of _ rumor���  this scandal monger���this valiant  assailant   of   absentees,   invited  honorable members of the house  to   blacken   the   reputations   of  their colleagues without evidence,  without cause, without justification, for the sole and only reason  that he might destroy the party  to which he has proved a traitor,  and to humiliate the great head.  of that party���Sir Wilfrid Laurier���and to feed his own snsatia-  ble appetite for notoriety.  HE HAD NO EVIDENCE.  "If. I had a title of evidence in  my possession I would make the  charge,'' said this isolated exponent of public virtue, but this  did not prevent the misguided  youth from suggesting that others, who possessed no more information than himself, should  assail the honor and integrity of  prominent gentlemen.  Mr. Bourassa, who may fittingly be described -as a self-conscious iconoclast, -concluded a  rambling dissertation by moving  an amendment, asking for a committee of the house with roving  powers to wield a muck rake, and  conduct ah inquisition into the  private affairs of every member  of the'house. .-���'-,  SIR   WI-.1'*RID'S   eloquent revly.  When Sir Wilfrid Laurier arose  to reply the house was crowded,  every member was in his place,  and standing room ouly was  available in the galleries. Lady  Laurier was present with a number of guests in ��� ,the speaker's  gallery. The Rt.y-.H6n.- gentleman-in a masterly speech exhibited all his old time fire and vigor. As his biting sarcasm, and  relentless logic stripped the. mantle of egotism from the member  for Labelle, that gentleman sank  lower and lower into his seat  until his attenuated form was  scarcely visible.  Sir Wilfrid described the resolution as the most remarkable he  had ever' seen in a long parliamentary career, and as he proceeded to dissect - the speech' of  Mr. Bourassa, and expose its malignant motive, its ill-concealed  menace to the .party, ��� its obvious  insincerity, its evident bid for  notoriety, he was endorsed by  ringing applause from all parts  of the house. When the Rt. Hon.  gentleman paid a tribute to the  personal character of members of  the house, he employed these eloquent terms:  "I can only say , to my honorable friend from Labelle that  every man in this house is an  honest man. that every man in  this house has the',.right to walk  with .his head erect, that every  man in this house ,ha.s the right  to his character until that character has been taken away from  him, not by insinuations, not by  the tittle tattle on the street, but  upon a charge made by some one  who has the courage to make  such a" charge. It-will not do tb  say there are rumors, but since  when under British institutions  have rumors been the subject of  investigation. If there are rumors against one or any of my colleagues, it is open to any man to  take up these rumors and to bring  them forward in the shape of a  charge which I can meet, to which  I can oppose my denial, or in regard to which I can offer my explanation."  Sir Wilfrid quoted from the  resolution, which was of a roving character, levelled against  no person, naming no charge,  disclosing no offence, and ��� as the  premier well said, is levelled at  214 members of the house of commons.  ���Speaking onthe-subject of���the  committee of inquiry asked for  by Mr. Bourassa, Sir Wilfred  dissected tbe resolution and literally tore it to shreds.    Said he:  "Let us appoint a committee to  investigate, and who is to be the  accuser? Let this committee be  granted and what shall be the  evidence? This committee would  be a committee of inquiry at random, to be disposed of nobody  knows how, to be guided by, nobody knows whom, and to come  to a conclusion nobody knows  where."  At this point in his speech the  prime minister faced Mr. Bourassa, and pointing his finger at  him, proceeded to administer a  verbal castigation which that  young man will not easily forget.  The Rt. Hon. gentleman reminded the house how difficult it  was to deal with rumors, that  Mr. Bourassa had repeated gossip and street talk affecting the  honor of the crown, but had also  said that he had no proof or he  would bring it forward. With  fiery eloquence and perfect diction  the prime minister continued:  "All I have to say to my honorable friend is, if he has not the  proof, why does he mention it at  all? The rumors which hare  been floating in the air at last  fell into the gutter, and the honorable gentleman gropes in the  gutter and brings these rumors  into the house."  This brilliant passage was received with tumultuous cheers by  the supporters of the government, and as the first minister  continued to ask, whether it was  to investigate charges of that  kind that the committee  was re-  BIG FRUIT LANDRUSH  A Stampede Now  On  Fruit Lands.  for  KETTLE VALLEY IS RIPE  For a Share in the Great Rush tothe  Land in a Genial Climate at  Pleasant Work.  GAME PROTECTION  Continued on page three.  Everywhere, in the west, there  is a great demand for fruit lands,  and especially for irrigated lands.  Down in Washington orchard  lands have grown in value to  $1,000 and $1,500 an acre.  At Yakima, Kennewick, Wen-  atchee and elsewhere, the value  has been proven, and fabulous returns come from fruit. This has  been an incentive elsewhere, and  at Hayden Lake, along the Columbia, near Spokane, in fact, in  dozens of places, great areas are  .being placed on the market, and  irrigated at prices running from  $200 to $500 an acre. But the  fever has reached British Columbia, too, and the Okanagan is being gradually converted into one  vast orchard.  The people from the windswept prairies of Manitoba, worn  out with the winters, and yet  wealthy from the wheat fields,  are seeking a more favored clime,  and one where they can still farm  with assurance, but withal, with  pleasure. And they are coming  west���coming to the Kootenay,  and the Okanagan and the Similkameen.  But the Kettle valley is getting  ready, too, to share in the honors  of a host that will give all, and  even-more, than it promises.  The Kettle Valley Irrigated  Fruit Lands Co., operated west  of Midway, are now ready for  buyers of five and ten-acre tracts,  tracts of high-grade soil, with  water assured and with an unexcelled climate.  The past winter came opportunely to prove the merits of the  ���clitiiate for fruit. The most severe winter known, at least for  ten years past, it was feared that  it might be hard on fruit trees.  But a walk through W. H. Norris' 20-acre apple orchard ats-Midway shows no signs of damage, to  the trees.  Mr. Myerhoff, his" neighbor on  the west, encouraged by the way  his young * orchard stood the  winter, is putting out 20 acres  more this spring, and is installing a water system to be operated  by a gasoline engine. Just across  the river, J. H. McNames is preparing to irrigate his farm by  putting a water wheel 30 feet in  diameter, with immense lifting  power, in the Kettle river. The  experience these and other individual orchardists have had with  their fruit justify'the commercial  venture of Messrs. Norris &  Wrig-ht, in their fruit lands  scheme further west. These gentlemen and their associates, acting as the company referred to,  have "acquired nearly_"4~000_a cr es  of the finest kind of fruit lands  between Ingram bridge and Rock  Creek, - aud have put it under  ditch and are now selling the  land with perpetual water right at very  low prices, from SlOO to $150 an acre.  Each acre of land sold carries with it  an interest in the Rock Creek water  scheme, so that when the land is all  sold the owners of the tracts will be  owners of the water, and each will pay  for water yearly merely his proportionate share of the cost of maintenance  of the ditch. Not only do the ditches  and flumes become the property of the  land owners, but the water rights be  long* as well, so that where most irrigated lands are subject to a tax of  from 52 to S3 per acre, per year, this  orchard tract tax will be a nominal  thing.  Perhaps no belter proof of the adaptability of this region for fruit can be  found than to visit Mr. Norris' place  these April days and look at the color  and feel the firmness aud taste the  flavor of his Wealthy apple of last  year's crop, still on hand, and which  are regarded as essentially an autumn  apple.  We are glad to know that the Kettle  valley fruit lands west of Midway are  in demand.  Mr. Temple Godman, son of Lieutenant General Godman, started the  ball rolling by the purchase of SO acres  of these lands, just east of Mr. Powers'  10 acre tract. A system of roads,which  in fact will be boulevards, has been  laid out through the tract and in a few  years the drive from Ingram bridge  to Rock Creek and beyond, will be  through an apple orchard, redolent in  the spring and beautiful in autumn.

The Game Protective association  held its second meeting in the city hall  Monday evening last. A large number  of the citizens of Greenwood and Anaconda have joined. The pledge of the  association is to abstain from fishing  in Boundary creek until after the  spring freshets and to assist in protecting the fish in the creek.  Several- Midway citizens have sent  word that they desire to be enrolled.  The officers of the association are,  G. B. Taylor, president; Jas. G. Birnie,  secretary-treasurer. with McRae,  Wright and Boak as executive committee.  Another meeting is called for Satur-  urday evening next, when the organization will be perfected and a further  plau of campaign marked out.  The association aims to have the  close season extended and present laws  enforced. The matter of a fish ladder  at Cascade and at Boundary Falls will  engage the attention of the society.  SUDBURY MIME CO.  A New Company Being Incorporated  TO WORK THE SUDBURY  NOVEL IDEA  A novel idea, but a most effective  one, has been introduced by the B. C.  Copper Co. in the matter of better distribution of the charges in the big  furnaces. The tendency has been for  the heavy charges of mineral when  dumped into the furnace to run to the  center, resulting in. an uneven distribution of ore and coke over the fire  area. By the introduction of a system  of baffles suspended from above in the  furnace the charge strikes what is  really an iron plate, and distributes  evenly across the entire furnace. In  this way even smelting power is made  effective in the entire mass. The result is to enable more ore to be smelted  with less flux. As a matter of fact  each of tho 600 ton furnaces is now  reducing 700 tons a day.  POWER TO TAX  At the late meeting of the Associated  Boards, the Greenwood board presented  the following:  Resolved,That the Assuciated Baards  of trade of Eastern B. C, be requested  to memorialize the provincial government to repeal sub-section A of section  118, of the Municipal Clauses Act, 1906,  in regard to the assessment of roadbeds,  rights of way and other property occupied by railway companies within  municipalities.

"���'  ���7,  NO.mdf.qX  And Two Other Claims in East Dead-  wood Camp. Recently Obtained  from the Owners.  A new company is in the mining  field. James Schiewe of Spokane, a  recent' visitor to Greenwood, encouraged by what has been clone in tht.  copper industry here, has interested a  number of Washington friends in  another mining venture near Greenwood. The company have secured by  purchase from the owners the Sudbury  aud two other claims in Deadwood  Camp, lying between the properties of  the Boundary Creek Mining & Milling  Co. and the Great Hopes and Margur-  ite.  The properties are not far east from  the works of the Mother Lode aud  Sunset, in the low grade belt, Considerable wotk has been done on the property, and on the Sudbury in particularly there is a good ore showing. The  former owners, Messrs. Graham of ���  Deadwood, and Hall of Greenwood,  have always held a high opinion of the  claims, and have looked to see the  Sudbury become a mine. The company  will be incorporated under the laws of  Washington, and development work  will be begun in the course of a few  weeks.  The hills about Greenwood abouud  in opportunities for investment of capital, and we are glad to see our nearby  neighbors desirous to get in before the  large companies absorb the best of  everything.

In the last seven  year, the output of the natural  wealth of the Boundary has  grown from nothing in 1900 to  something in the neighborhood  of six millions in 1906.  The present productive area of  the Boundary is very small. A  strip of territory 10 miles north  and south, and 15 miles east and  west, will take in all the producing mines and smelters, Grand  Forks, Phoenix, Greenwood,  Deadwood, Eholt and Boundary  Falls.  In that area of 1-0 square miles  will be mined and smelted this  year $7,500,000 worth of ore,  value taken from the ground.  And that quantity will yearly  increase. The big companies  have just gotten into shape to do  things right. The ore bodies  have been explored by diamond  drills, electric power has been  substituted for steam, furnace capacity has been increased, new  mines have been opened up, capital is at their command, and bigger things' will be doing.  Two other large  Concerns  arc  arranging to come  into  the district  for  operation   at  an  early  . day, and  still  the   ground is far  from taken.  A very large percentage of this  yearly yield of the mines goes  out in pay rolls, and payrolls  make local prosperity.  Now, let us reduce this matter  to another basis. This^l50 square  miles of land means less than a  hundred thousand acres. With a  1907 output of $7,500,000 each of  these acres will average a return  f-Tim~ ,���  This would be equivalent to a  solid wheat field of 300.000 acres,  each acre of which would yield  an average of 25 bushels of dollar wheat. Were such a wheat  field stretched out along a line of  railway with such a yield and  at such a price, the fact would be  reported the world over, and such  a boom would develop for the  lands that prices would go up  with a bound. But here the  wealth is below ground and cannot be seen, aud hence no one enthuses over it. And this area is  capable of far more intense development. Within it .are still  many undeveloped properties as  good as the best taken.  Now that Boundary ores have  been proven profitable fresh capital must inevitably flow into the  district for development, creating  in its turn new ancl increased  wealth.  The day for larger capital has  come, and that means the da}7 for  selling properties now in the  hands of those unable to develop  them. The day for borrowing  claims iudefmitely'has past. The  day for shoe-string mining in low-  grade ores has gone. The day of  big things would seem to be here  and the dream of more mines and  more-smelters on- Boundary-creek  cannot be far off.  the females the capture of one  fish in April or even May, means  the destruction of thousands for  later years.  The law must be remedied in  this respect, and the society will  endeavor to get the close season  extended until such a date that  high water in the creek will then  protect the fish another month.  To inculcate in the public mind  the enormity of destroying the  female fish at this season, will  be the first work  of the. society.  The second direction in Avb.ch  some energy will be expended will  ���be. to give some value to a law  already written; and which is not  being houored by the public. The  law says no fish shall betaken  less than f> inches in length.  Last svtmmer many a dozen fish  were taken below the regulation  size. It is intended to have this  law vigorously enforced, and  efforts will be made towards that  end. The society will endeavor  to make generally known this  provision of the law, but it will  proceed on the same assumption  as,the law, that ignorance of law  is no excuse, and any party being  known to have violated the law  inthis respect will be prosecuted.  All lovers of the sport are invited to join the society and help  it along. Meantime, the society  appeals to the. public to desist  from fishing until after high  water, and' furthermore to take  warning against the destruction  of small fish.  What a Farmer's Wife  Owes to Bileans  Mrs. Johu Whitfield, of Swan 7L,ake,  (Man.), writes: "I can hardly describe  how bad I felt before I took Bileans. I  could not eat but what it caused pain.  There was a sensation of tightness in  my aide and my liver was entirely out  of order. I could not sleep at nights,  suffered also from kidney trouble, and  was, altogether, in a very' serious condition. I had been ailing- ih this way  for years, and it is gratifying- to find  that Bileans were equal to my case."

PROTECT TKE FISH  A number of our citizens have  formed a game and  fish  Protective association.     The object  of  the society is commendable,   The  primary design is to  protect   the  fish  in Boundary creek.     Later  the scope of the  society  will   be  widened.    An emergency in  connection with  the  preservation of  the fish in the  creek  appears to  exist.    A few years  ago no trout  were in the creek.    Last year the  fishing was  good   all   along  the  stream,   and   as   far    north    as  Haussner's   ranch.c,    For    many  years   a   number   of   gentlemen'  with sporting instincts interested  themselves   in "planting   fish in  Boundary   creek.     Fish   caught  below  Boundary Falls   and;;  too  small for the pan were carefully  transported to the stream  above  the falls.    These fish have grown  and    multiplied,   and    now   the  stream is well   stocked  with  the  finny tribe.  The law, in attempting to preserve the fish, prescribes  a  close  season   for   the  district.  The  close  season   for  Boundary  creek terminates with  March 25.  This  is  altogether   too  early  a  date.      The   trout  of   Boundary  creek do not  spawn  until   April  and  May,   and  hence  the   open  season  should  not  begin  before  June.    Early  in  the season  the  fish are not sportive, are  not  in  good condition, and in the case of  is  HEALTHFUL  AND  PLEASANT  IF YOU WEAR  WATERPROOF  OILED CLOTHING  BLACK OR VELLOW  Perfect ProtecHoi.

Premier McBride has left for London

council.
Ottawa, April 3.—In the house this
afternoon the premier announced that
Hon. H. R. Emmerson had placed his
resignation in his hands and that he
had recommended the governor general
to accept the proffer. In connection
with this statement was coupled an
unqualified denial on the minister's
part of the charges of personal misconduct made against him in the Fred-
ericton Gleaner last week. Emrnerson
declared in his resignation that he
desired to be relieved from cabinet
duties so that he might better vindicate
his character .and that no obstacle
might be imposed on Laurier's departure this week for the colonial conference. c
.- In taking leave of his late colleague,
Laurier expressed his full appreciation
of Emmeraon's zeal in the discharge of
the responsible duties to which he had
been intrusted.
Emrnerson read a brief statement to
the house, aud followed with a verbal
explanation that he had already given
instructions for the issue of writs of
libel against the Fredericton Gleaner,
the,.Halifax Herald and the' Torouto
World.
Gossip, he added, had been slandering him behind his back, but this was
the first instance in which these accusations had taken tangible form. Ho
one was more sensible than himself of
his own weaknesses and foibles, but'ha
had not thought, hitherto, that these
were subjects for parliamentary discussion or investigation. He had rather
thought it would have been left for the
man who was without sin to cast the
first stone. .   -
Emmersoit asserted most positively
that he had never been in.,any hotel,
either in Montreal, or elsewhere, with
anybody of ill-repute. In conclusion
the minister asked the house and
country to suspend judgment on these
matters until the facts involved had
been brought out before the courts.
Geo.^W.,Fowler, M. P , conservative,
is president of the company that publishes the Gleaner, and a conservative
member of parliament acts as its
Ottawa correspondent.
There is a great- deal of sympathy
expaessed for Mr; Emrnerson as he is a
hard working minister, popular on both
ai_cs of the house, and has brought
the Intercolonial railway into a high
state of efficiency and at ths same
time left a surplus in its treasury.—

LOOK AFTER THE BOYS
Chief of Police Wappenstein of Seattle, recently said:      -
"Half the burglaries and other thefts
committed in Seattle in the last six
months have been by children under
the age of fifteen years.
"The fact that so many Seattle
children turn out to be thieves in their
tender years is due in nine cases out of
ten to the neglect of their mothers,
who think more of their clubs and
their social amusement than they do of
the proper rearing of their off_p_ing.
"The condition is as alarming as it
is deplorable. It has reached such an
extent that the police department is
almost powerless to cope fully with
increase in the crime of this kind.
Something must be done to check it,
and there is no curer way than to impress upon parents the fact that they,
and they alone, are responsible,"
And now Seattle mothers" are after
the chief, instead of the boys.
SIRWILFRID'S SPEECH
(Continued from page 1.)
quired, the  applause  was   again
and again renewed.
The prime minister again asserted that any charge brought by
any member of the cabinet or any
member of the house affecting
the public standing of any member would be given the fullest investigation, but that the house of
commons would not deal in rumors nor unsubstantial insinuations. Sir Wilfrid concluded a
brilliant speech in these words:
PREMIER'S MASTERLY PERORATION
"If- the honorable member for
Labelle, or.- anyone else has
charges to make against myself
or against-any of my colleagues
he is welcome to make ihem. Let
him do it in a parliamentary manner, let him formulate his charges
and an investigation shall take
place, immediately. Let him substantiate-anything that he has
in his mind and that he thinks
ought to be investigated and tomorrow the investigation shall
be granted. But, Sir, I protest
in the name of parliamentary life,
in the name of parliamentary
dignity, against the speech that
was made this afternoon, by the
member for Labelle. Public life
has its duties and its responsibilities, and it has, perhaps, more to
suffer than to enjoy, but after all
there is one thing which we
should, on one side erf the house
or on the other, always endeavor
to maintain, that is to say, that
in our daily conflicts we should
fight fair and square, and never
strike below the belt."
As the Rt. Hon. gentleman resumed his seat amid cheering
which could be heard far beyond
the precincts of the house, the
member for Labelle, his vanity
hurt, his pride -lowered, his prestige lessened, quietly withdrew
from the chamber, and that unsubstantial myth known as the
"Fowler charges" was consigned
to oblivion.

There is some speculatibn as to the
position of the copper market during
ihe next few months. Momentarily
prices are unsettled, because certain
large consumers are of the opinion
that the heavy decline in the foreign
market last week (the result really of
speculation), means lower prices in the
future. On March 26 standard copper
sold in London at £9S 10s per ton (20.59.
cents per pound), the lowest point in
some months. Subsequently, however,
there was a recovery, and on March 28,
the last trading day of the month, the
quotation was ,£97 5s per ton (20 97
cents per pounp). The average price
of standard copper in London in March
was ^106.512 per ton (23.01 cents per
pound), which compares with ,£107.368
per ton (23.19 cents per pound) in February, and ^106,787 per ton (23.07 cents
per pound)_in_January. The. average
for the three months is £106.889 per
ton (23.09 cents per pound), as against
£79.647 per ton (17.21 cents per pound)
in the first quarter of 1906; showing an
increase of £27.242 per ton (5.88 cents
per pound). At New York for the
quarter ending with March, the
monthly average prices were: Lake
copper, 25.474 cents per pound iu March,
against 25.218 cents iu February, and
24.885 cents in January; for three
months, 25.189 cents, which compares
with 18.44 cents for the corresponding
period of last year; an increase of
6.749 cents per pound. Electrolytic
copper, 25.07 cents per pound in March,
against 24.938 cents in February, and
24.56 cents in January; an average for

majority. In 21 years the city has
become one of the finest on the Pacific
coast. She has a population of 62,000
—which will grow to 100,000 in 1910—
splendid streets, and manufacturing
and educational facilities that are the
best in Canada.—The Province.
Canada furnishes England with
much of i.s butter and cheese, as well
as its bread. The exports of cheese
from the Dominion of Canada to Great
Britain in 1883 amounted to 1,000,000
boxes, valued at 56,500,000, while in
1906 the exports were 2,300,000 boxes,
representing a value of ?26,000,000.
There was also exported to Great-
Britain in 1906, $5,000,000 worth of
butter.
The remains of the late Dr. W. H.
Drummond, who died at Cobalt on
Saturday, the 6th, reached Montreal on
the 8th inst., accompanied by Mrs.
Drummond and the brothers of the
deceased. A large number of friends
and admirers gathered at St. Georges
church on Dominion square, whence
the funeral took place at 2:30 o'clock.
The remains were interred at Mount
Royal cemetery.
The Deminion of Canada will have
nearly 30,000 mileB of railway in a
position to be placed under operation
by the end of 1907. At the end of 1906
the total mileage actually in operation
of steam railways in Canada was
approximately 22,500 miles. Added to
this the 5,800 miles, which, according
to the latest revision of contracts, will
be practically constructed the present
year, the exact figures indicate that
28,300 miles will be ready by the end of
1907.     .
CANADIAN INVENTOR'S
EXPERIENCE
Interesting;   Incident  by a   Famous
Patentee.
Mr. Wm. Wilson, of Craigie Villa,
London (Out.), the inventor.- of the
Wilson Fruit Case, now adopted by
the Canadian government, tells an
interesting experience which shows the
healing and antiseptic value of Zam-
Buk, the herbal balm. He says: "I
had two poisoned wounds on my leg,
which were very sore and inflamed.
They caused me much pain and suffer
ing, and althugh I tried several salves
they refused to heal. Zam-Buk was
recommended, and I applied some. It
acted splendidly and in a very short
time healed the wounds.
"At another time I sustained a nasty
cut. Zam-Buk took away the soreness
almost instantly and soon closed and
healed- the-wouad.— I—have-also, used
Zam-Buk for other injuries, and I have
no hesitation in expressing my high
opinion of its value- It is, without
doubt, a splendid household balm!"
Zam-Buk cures blood poison, cuts,
bruises, old wounds, running sores,
ulcers, boils, spring eruptions, scalp
sores, eczema, itch, barber's rash,
burns, scalds and all skin injuries and
diseases. All druggists aud stores sell
at fifty ceuts a box, or from Zam-Buk
Co., Toronto, for price. Remember, it
is purely herbal!
A JUDGE'S CRITICISM
In the suit of J. D. Montgomery
against Peter,Ryan, in Toronto, recently, Judge Clute, in giving judgment, says:     "
"Nothing is more calculated to shake
public confidence in our banks than
the knowledge that it- accounts are
open to inspection by any one who
may use the knowledge to th<* harm of
the customer. Exposing the customer'a
accounts i.s in direct violation of the
law, and as a sale of Ryan's account to
Montgomery was based on an illegal
act, it is void."
We have always supposed that the
relations between bank and customer,
like those between physician and patient,''were confidential. When they
become otherwise, either the customer's
account should, or the bank's management, spouldbe changed.
A quartz mine claim in the Transvaal is ISO feet long on the line of

In addition to this the government

THE STEAMER OKANAGAN  What is going to be done with all  that money the government has placed  in the estimates for roads in the Greenwood riding? The appropriation,  33,500, is just one dollar for every $22  granted to Okanagan and Similkameen  combined. Let us see, is Greenwood  opposed to the government?  Thursday, 11th inst., -was the day set  for launching the new Canadian Pacific steamer Okanagan, the largest  and" finest boat to ply the lake  waters of British Columbia, and one  that will compare with the best ou the  coast.  The Okanagan is 222 feet loug over  the wheel and has a beam of 36>1 feet.  The lower deck will be devoted to  freight, the main deck to cabins, dining rooms, state rooms, etc., and the  third deck to additional state rooms,  writing room and promenade.  A,wagon road a mile long is being  built along the side hill east of town  to the Fremont. The Fremont is yielding some very rich ore, and an electric  hoist and other. machinery are to be  installed at once.  The new-wire tram at the Napoleon  mine has- been completed and will be  in operation in a few days. This mine  is now in shape to ship 125 tons of ore  daily to the company's plant here.  THE ORE TRAIN  Japan, until recently, held sixth rank  among the copper producing countries  of the world,' but she has risen to  fourth .place''with an output equal to 5  per cent of the total production of the  world.  Great excitement has been caused at  Fort Saskatchewan by the discovery of  large deposits of lead'a few miles from  town. The discovery : was made by a  homesteader on;.an adjoining quarter  section. A- party of four, headed by  Frank Walker, M. P. P., at once left  for the spot and upan their return to  the town confirmed the report of the  homesteader; In the meantime other  parties had stepped in and. bought' the  quarter section on which the find was  made, and the adjoining quarter; and  they have refused numerous offers to  resell at greatly enhanced prices.  F. P. Buck, of Sherbrook, president  of the Phoenix Amalgamated Mines,  has issued a circular explaining a contemplated deal. The Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines, Ltd., comprising the War Eagle, the Red Deep, the  Bald Eagle, tlie Lulu, the Dandy, the  Missing Link and the Pinhook, all in  the Phoenix mining camp, quite near  the Granby properties, have received a  favorable offer from a New York syndicate. The'capital of the company is  $5,000,000 with 500,000 shares of a par  value of S10 per' share, and 200,000  shares in the treasury. The New York  people offer SI.75 per share for the  treasury stock, amounting to $350,000.  The same syndicate also offers SI.50 per  share for an additional 200,000. shares.  This will leave 100,000 shares to be  deposited wilh the Eastern Townships  bank, to be held in trust for a period of  two years from the time the options  are executed in favor of the'syndicate.  THE INSURANCE REPORT  An Ottawa correspondent in a letter  to the press ' says: The Insurance report came up for discussion in the house  on Tuesday, and those who had any  observations to make confined themselves to quotations from the report of  the commisf ioners, which dealt with  the'relations of Hon. Geo. E. Foster to  the companies with which he had. been  idetified. The allegations against Mr..  Foster clustered around the verdict of  the commissioners that he had, as  manager of a trust fund, caused the  company to make an investment in  which __he_Jhimself _ participated and  shared in the profits. It was ^also  disclosed by. the report that Mr. Foster  had received payment by way of commission upon transactions in which his  company was interested.  It was pointed out in this connection  that he had not only lent money to  syndicates in which lie was financially  interested, but necessarily sat at board  meetings-when his own interests conflicted with the interests of the company for which he was manager. The  impropriety of this was alluded to, and  it was stated that he had improperly  dealt with funds for which he was  trustee, ra that he had dealt with aifairs  in which he had a money interest. It  was further sttated that he and Messrs,  Fowler, Lefurgey and Bennett, had  received favors from railway magnates  in the purchase of land, and that their  attitude to   the Grand Trunk Pacific  The early Vegetables and Fruits  are coining in and'  now is the time you will appreciate theni the most.  ���' , ��� NEW  Mr. Macknight (member of the Professional Photographers association),  City Studio, Greenwood, is prepared to  photograph buildings, machinery,  groups, etc., anywhere within 100miles  radius.
