J Copper Street _._._._������_-  RAILWAY  BUILDING  Construction Work Is Being  Seriously Delayed.  GREAT SCARCITY OF MEN  Slow Progress Made in Connection  With Local Construction.���Some  Announcements Expected.  J, P- FLOOD,     Prop.  ��� vVwVAvJWv  . "Men wanted," is the 0x3* of every  railway contractor in the west. The  employment bureaus in the various  centers of population are being worked  overtime in a frantic effort to supply  the demands .of insistent railway  builders. East, west, north and south,  there is more railway building than at  any other time in the history of Canada or United'States. Meu who follow  railway construe!ion as an occupation  cannot be had in . sufficient quantities  to supply the ever increasing' demand.  To add to the scarcity of labor there  are bumper crops everywhere this year  and the agriculturist is forced to pay  extra wages in order to bribe men  away from the railway builder.  The condition of the labor market  has had the effect on local railway  building, and the plans of engineers  and others who are supposed to tell  to within a fraction of-'a.ininute when  and how certain work is to be completed, ���' have all been knocked into  cocked hats. Grading on the V.;. V. &  E. is fairly well completed into the  Similkameen valley, but track laying  is almost as slow as New Orleans mo  lasses in a Klondike winter. One  hundred-more men are needed tb complete a full crew. Notwithstanding  this serious setback, some progress is  being made, and the iron horse now  has a rail as far as McMynn's -ranch,  on Myers creek, but the contractors  are now figuring on October as the  month when trains will be running to  Oroville. Until this work is completed  it is not at all probable that any. new  work will be commenced in the Similkameen valley. Bv that time harvesting'will be a thing of the past, and it  is confidently hoped that the labor  market will resume a normal condition,  so far as railway..construction-is concerned.   ���  ......       0  P. Welch, who manages J. W. Stewart's and Porter Bros. & Welch's  big contracts here, on the Columbia  river and in Idaho,'was. in Midway last  week and he reported that 'they were  experiencing-M:he---:sa!ne^di-ficulty___in_  connection with their American work.

W. P. Tierney, the well known Nelson contractor, who is-building fifty  miles of railway up the North Fork of  the Kettle river for the Hot Air line,  was in the city this week ancl reports  similar difficulties in securing an  adequate supply of labor. He has,  however, about 500 men at work and  good progress is being made.  J. J.vWarren, the general manager  of the Kettle Valley lines, is at present in Grand Forks, and is well satisfied with the progress being made on  the North Fork work. His company  intends extending its lines from Republic to Spokane. This announcement lends color to the rumor that the  C. P. R. is backing the enterprise with  a view to securing a valuable feeder in  the North Fork branch and by making  connection between Republic and, Spokane, securing a better route, for hauling coal and coke from the Crow's  Nest coal fields to the Boundary smelters. -The'Corbin road from Yahk in  the Crow's Nest, to Spokane, is Hearing completion, and as this road will  be operated by the C. P. R., a southern  route will be secured as soon as the  Spokane-Republic road is completed.  Heretofore the C. P. R. has beeu handicapped by the excessive grade, from  Castlegar  to Bulldog tunnel,   but  the  route outlined, with necessary betterments on the Grand Forks-Republic  Hot Air liiae, would give the C. P. R.  a grade in which they could successfully compete with the Great Northern.  The Great Northern is trying to  make its Republic.line a profit-earning  road by continuing from Republic to  Brewster. This extension will open  up a good country,.and at Brewster it  will join the proposed road from Wen-  atchee to Oroville.  - The Great'Northern.has abandoned  its intention of building a road up the  North Fork at present. The survey  parties who have been locating the  route have been called off and and are  at present engaged in running a spur  tothe Victoria mine at Phoenix. This  mine is owned by the Granby company,  who is desirous of shipping ore therefrom.  There is nothing new to report in  connection with the Midway & Vernon.  Mr. Smailes is stillworking away with  excellent orospects of final success.  The syndicate with whom negotiations  is being carried on are fully competent  to, handle the enterprise. As soon as  all the details are examined a decision  w ill be arrived at and a definite announcement should be forthcoming a',  an early date.  The" Midway-Greenwood branch of  _t_he_���Great   Northern   is  also a matter  regarding which, an announcement  should soon be made. President Hill  intended coming here during his recent visit west to examine the ground  for himself, but he was hurriedly called  back to New York. This may delay  construction temporarily, but actual  construction of of this important work  should be commenced early this fall.  We   handle only   Canadian   canned  meats.

The  rich strikes recently made at the Duncan have not "petered out," but have  continued to yield good values with  increasing width of ledge matter.

CHICAG0 IS REPRESENTED  Much Interest Is Being: Taken in Hiefc  and Low Grade Mines in  the Boundary.  Greenwood is fast becoming a mecca.  for successful mining men. All one  has to do is to look over the register of  the Imperial hotel ancl one i.s at once  convinced that the fame of, the Bound  ary has attracted prominent men;from  all points of the continent. Varying  appetites for mining ventures are all  apparently satisfied The man who  believes in large bodies of low grade  ore. associates with the high graders.  Everyone who has money to invest iu  legitimate mining enterprises can get  what he wants in the Boundary district.  M. M. Johnson of Salt Lake City,  accompanied by his daughter, arrived  hereon Monday ^evening. Mr. Johnson is the consulting engineer for the  Dominion Copper company. H*�� came  in advance of Senator Werner Miller,  president of the company, and his  party, who arrived here later in the  week. Steady progress summarizes  the story of the Dominion Copper company. Increased smelting capacity, new  mines opened up, increased tonnage,  more money being made- and a sure  and certain future makes the latest  and best chapter in the history of this  company. r  Then Chicago seiids.its quota of  mining men. ' Richard Armstrong  spent the week here. Accompanied by  J. tnes Donohue, the president of the  Helen Mining company, they climbed  the hills to see the wonderfully rich  ore of the Strathmore and examine the  other properties of the company and  incidentally to reduce the ever increasing avorid'ipois which success always  brings to the Chicagoan. Mr. Donohue, who is one of the successful  business men from the pork city, has  been here for several weeks. He is  favorably impressed wilh the district  and well satisfied with his investment:*.  Tuesday evening the Strathmore  syndicate was joined by Mr. Pattison,  one of their Chicago associates. Mr.  Pattison, like >nany another successful man in Chicago, is a Canadian. A  number of years ago he knew something about politics and running  3iecfiSns"aB1d~driyui'"_^  who refused to behave themselves,  out of public life, but for the last  dozen years he has beeii living the  simpler and quieter life in Chicago.  Mrs. Pattisou aud himself have been  combining business with pleasure.  They left Chicago some three weeks  ago, and after vi-iting coast cities,  they of course had to see Greenwood  and tlie Greenwood mines before returning home.  Col. Dickason, after spending an  enjoyable three weeks on a house boat  on Kootenay lake, returned to Greenwood this week for the purpose of seeing his property, the Crescent, befoie  returning',to Chicago. Col. Dickason  does not believe iu' exhausting the ore  supply under adverse conditions.  Plenty of rich ore has been uncovered  at the Cresceni, but the owner has decided to leave it there until il has been  demonstrated that the ore goes down.  As soon as it is proven thai the Crescent is a mine, then a modern plant  will be installed and the. profit-earning  period commenced under the most  favorable and economic conditions.  Of course such au aggregation of  prominent mining men couldn'1 be  here without -'Dick-' Williams. The  enterprising agent of the Jenckes Machine company was on the ground  ready and willing to tell them and sell  them just what they wanted in the  mining machinery line.  The intense itching characteristic of  salt rheum and eczema is instantly  allayed by applying Chamberlain's  Salve. As a cure for skin diseases thi��  salve is unequ.iled.

FRIDAY  AUGUST 3 l'��(i(.  HYSTERICAL  The Daily Canadian is never  happy except when it is unfair  and inconsistent. Its editor's  early training- and environment  are e'videnced in every editorial  which has for its object the condemnation of those pestilent  Grits and giorilication of those  heavenly Tories. It has discovered that Phceuix is being* punished because it gave a Tory  majority in the last Federal election. It finds evidence to substantiate this charg-e in the treatment accorded that enterprising  town since the election took  place. Two mail services a day,  instead of one, and a custom  house where none existed, all go  to show the vinclictiveiiess of the  Federal o-overument and the  member for Y.ale-Cariboo. Of  course the g-overnment and the  member are io blame because,  in their wisdom, the directors of  the Canadian Pacific Railway  company so arrange the schedule  that neither passengers, baggage  nor mail can be conveyed over the  C P. R. between Greenwood and  Phoenix, and vice versa, in less  than two days. When the suggestion is made that the Board of  Railway commissioners should  interfere in-order to compel the  companv to give a service that  would be of some benefit to the  public, the Daily Canadian gets  hysterical and suggests that the  people of Phoeuix are threatened  with the loss of "their integrity  and the freedom of the ballot."  Bv a direct connection the  Canadian Pacific Railway company could give Greenwood-  Phoenix a less than two hour  service. It chooses to give a  service which takes more than  twenty-four hours. The maii  "service^ts^as^-swift-^as^the-'train^  service. The Post Office department at one time cancelled the  ���mail service over the C. P. R.  with a view to securing a better  service by stage. The people of  Phoenix were not satisfied, and  demanded the old service. They  got what they asked for. Other  improvements will be made in the  service notwithstanding the hysterical vaporiugs of Tory organs  like the Canadian and the Pioneer.  drawback heretofore has been the  attempt to administer the lauds  in the Railwav belt under regu-  lations framed for the prairie  lands of the of the Northwest,  where conditions are almost entirely dissimilar.  The Colonist does not strengthen its argument by suggesting  that the" forest reserves in the  Railway belt were created for the  purpose of protecting the interests of friends of the government. So far as the writer  knows, if there are any such interest.-- they are held by the Kamloops Lumber company, in which  Hon. Geo. E. For tier, M, P., Geo.  H. Fowler, M. P., Rufus Pope  and Geo. McCormick. ex-MVP's.,  are the priucipal shareholders.  These men can scarcely be classed  as friends of the government: at  Ottawa. The forest reserves in  the Railway belt.were placed on  lauds contiguous to the sources  of the water supply, in the dry  belt with a view to conserving  the water for much needed irrigation. In selecting these reserves  there was absolutely not the  slightest suggestion of promoting  or protecting the interest of any  particular company or individual.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  Conservative papers are making much capital out of the fact  that Commissioner Peters, who  was appointed to investigate the  Lands and Works department aud  Mrs. Jimmy Anderson's connection therewith, is a Liberal.  Does all this g~o to prove that in  order to secure a satisfactory judicial investigation the commissioner must necessarily be a Liberal, or that it is good party tactics to appoint a Liberal in whom  Conservatives have .confidence?

The Colonist very properly  calls attention to the necessity of  a change of policy in the administration of the Railway belt  by the Department of Interior  at Ottawa. The administration  of this large and important portion of the public domain has  been along the lines of that ol  the predecessors of the present  government. Conditions are rapidly changing and policies should  be changed to meet varying conditions. Hon. Mr. Oliver, the  present Minister of the Interior,  to whom strong representations  have been made, has promised to  personally incptire into the matter  with a view to adopting such regulations as will best suit the peculiar physicial conditions in the  Railway     belt.

Cast iron, steel and wrought  iron, their chief chemical difference  beiiiji'in-the" variable quantity of carr  boa contained in them. Cast iron has  3(-6 per cent carbon, stee-l has 8-1.8 per  cent carbon, and'wrought iron has the  least, 2 to 6 per cent carbon.

It forms  two aeries of compounds, the ferrous  a,nd ferric. T-he ferrous are generally  light colored or, green, while the ferric  ������"tre generally red or yiellow. Ordinary  iron rusts rapidly in moist air, as it  covers itself with a thin layer of ferric  hydroxide.  V Iron ores are nearly always found in  ^eds'lf c��r: .j_e|ijbsits, the veins of the  pres'of iron being generally of small  extent.   .  .,; In coa.1 fields clay iron stone is very  pften found and in some countries, like  J3 rig-land, forms the chief supply of  iron, being associated with strata with  the'coal'b'e'd's iii" form of carbonates of  'iron. 7  ��� Iron-being in such great demand for  so many industries, requires that the  metal be of fitst-class quality. Ores  running from SO to 65 per cent iron are  much sjoughtfor. They must be practically free from titanium, "which interferes with its smelting properties,"  and low in sulphur and phosphorus.0  In making steel, phosphorus must be  eliminated in the process of smelting,  or else it will interfere in the strength  of the'resulting steel.

Titanium, sulphur  and phosphorus are sometimes found  in this mineral and under certain conditions such impurities condemn the  ore. It has a metallic luster, occasionally splendent, sometimes dull. The  color is dark red, steel gray, and when  earthy, red. Its hardness is 5-5 to 6-5,  and it is not.magnetic.  The specular variety of hematite has  crystals, which are usually splendent,  heiicj the name "specular .iron." It  has a metallic luster, and when the  structure is foliated or micaceous the  ore is called micaceous h .matite.  Compact columnar hematite has a  sub metallic to metallic luster. The  color is brownish red to iron black,  often in reniform masses with smooth  fracture called kidney ore. It is generally called red hematite to distinguish it from limonite and turgite. It  occurs in rocks of all ages. The most  important deposits of hematite occur in  metamorphic rocks and are sometimes  of great thickness and have generally  resulted from the alteration of stratified beds of ore. (j  The red ocherous variety is red a_d  earth)*, sometimes called reddle and  red chalk when mixed with more or  less clay. In ".his form it is employed  in the manufacture of' red paints.  sub-metallic to silky in luster. The  ocherous are earthy, is brownish yellow to ocher yellow, often impure from  the presence of. sand, clay, etc. The  bog ore, the ore from marshy places,  generally loose or porous in texture,  often petrifying leaves, wood, nuts,  etc. The brown clay ironstone in compact masses, often in concretionary  nodules and has a brown streak distinguishing it from hematite clay ironstone,  SIDERITE.  Siderite or spathic iron ore is a carbonate of iron, having 48.2 per cent of  iron in the ferrous condition. It has a  viterous luster inclining to pearly, and  its color ash-gray, yellowish-gray,  greenish-gray, also brownish red,  rarely gr.en, and sometimes white.  Streak is also white. It resembles  some sphalerite but lacks the resinous  luster. It occurs in many kinds of  rock strata in gneiss, mica slate, clay  slate, and as clay incrustinein the coal  formations.  METALUC IRON.  Native iron is found in masses, sometimes of large size, in basalt in West  Greenland. This iron contains 1 lo 2  per cent of nickel, and is classed under  the variety of Terrestrial iron. It also  occurs with nickel in New Zealand in  the drift of a river.  Native iron also occurs in most  meteorites and is also always alloyed  with nickel, which is usually present  in amounts varying from 5 to 10 per  cent. Small amounts of cobalt, manganese, tin, copper, are also often  present.  The remainder of the iron minerals  are not classed as iron ores, as the lat-  ler include all ores which can be used  for iron smelting, while the minerals  below are not valued so much for the  iron they contain but for the values  in other metals, as gold, silver, copper,  sulphur, etc. .

Clay iron-stone- is-Hard", brownish"  black to reddish brown, often deep red.  It has a sub-metallic to unmetallic  luster and gives, like the prpceeding  varieties, a red streak. It is an oxide  of iron with clay or sand.  Hematite is found in great deposits  on the shores of Lake Superior, from  whence the great part of the ore mined  in the states is produced.  MAGNKTITK  Magnetite is next in importance as  an ore of iroii. It is sometimes called  magnetic iron ore. Its luster is metal  lie and splendent to sub-metallic and  rather dull. Its color is iron-black,  streak black, and strongly magnetic.  Its hardness is 5-5 to 6 5. It is composed of the oxides of ferreous and  ferric iron, and when pure has 72.4 per  cent iron. It is found mostly in crystalline rocks as gneiss, granite, etc.,  and is most abundant in metamorphic  rocks. It sometimes has as impurities  titanium, sulphur and phosphorus.  LIMON 1TK.  This ore is sometimes called brown  hematite. Its color is brown, dark,  sometimes jwith a nearly varnish-like  exterior; when earthy it is brownish  yellow, ochre y.ilow, streak yellowish  brown Its luster is usually silky,  often sub-metallic, sometimes dull and  earthy. When pure it contains 60' per  cent iron and 14.5 per cent water. It  is distinguished from hematite by its  yellow .streak, inferior hardness and its  reaction for water and is not crystal  ized. It is the result of the alteration  of other minerals containing iron  through exposure to air, moisture and  organic acids, derived largely from the  changes of pyrite, magnetite, siderite,  ferriferous dolomite, etc. It is often  associated with manganese ores. There  are several varieties.

H, Cosgrove believes not only iii giving  the people the best possible exhibition  for their instruction and benefit, but  also intends to provide them with  everything possible for their entertainment.  Motor cycle races will be one of the  special attractions of the race track  this fall. Motor cycles raced in June  at Spokane and made splendid time.  There are a number of them which will  be entered. A motor cycle is able to  make better time on a half mile track  than an automobile, because it is able  to go around the curves with greater  speed. There is considerable danger  of collision with the fence, but the  sport is exciting,  Squaw pony races were an interesting feature of last year's program^ and  these will be tried again this year.  Something new in this line will be the  squaw tepee^race. Ih7~this~each"s^uaw  has her tent pitched on the race track.  At a given signal she pulls down her  tepee, packs it on her pony, jumps on  its back, races down the track a given  distance, springs to the ground and  puts up her tepee again. This is not  only exciting, but full of amusement.  There also will be the usual number of  boys' races and newsboy races.0. The  rancher's team race, September 24,  will be especially attractive to farmers  who have good horses. Still another  special feature will be the gentlemen's  riding race, which will be given this  year for the first time The most  exciting of all, however, of the special  races will be the relay, which lasts ten  days, and for which a purse of 51,506  is offered. In all there are 520,000  offered this year for the race program,  which lasts two weeks and will be the  best ever seen in the Pacific northwest.

McPhee, superintendent of  the McKinley, that ISO,feet east of the  other workings a splendid body of  magnetic iron had been opened up on  the surface, carrying copper values.  This property is evidently fulfilling  the hopes of those who have pinned  their faith in its turning out to be one  of the big mines of the country.  On Sunday Chris. Tobiassen drove  H. E. .Moore of Los Angeles, lo the  camp. Mr. Moore is a mining engineer  of wide experience who has negotiated  some big deals in mining properties.  In his gratification at the richness of  the camp he forgot the long drive and  comparative remoteness of the district  from tiai.isporiation. He was greatly  im pressed with the McKinley and also  the Maple Leaf, and thought a tunnel  proposition on the latter claim was the  most feasible way of developing the  property.  Manager Drummond of the Dominion  Copper Co., paid a visit this week to  the Gloucester group, which they have  under bond. It is understood that  nearly 40 feet of tunneling work has  , now been done on the Gloucester since  the company took hold.  Thomas  Newby  came  into  town at  the end of last week and   reports  con  siderable activity in prosy ecting  work  Uiroughout the Franklin   mineral belt.  John Rogers was down from the  Pathfinder last Saturday and returned  - on Sunday Mr. Rogers has been  instructed to stop work at the 140 foot  level, and expects to be in the cily  again shortly, when any change of  plans in connection with Pathfinder  inattets will possibly be known. Duncan Murray, engineer of the mine, was  unfortunate enough to sustain a com  pound fracture of the thigh at the eud  of last week and was brought to the  hospital here, when he is being looked  after by Dr. Kingston.  In Great Northern matters the public  is doing some guessing, rumors of  ci u-truetion and non-construction be  i*io bandied about. The Gazette, representative had a chat with Chief  Engineer J. H Kennedy on Monday  last, on his way to the survey camp  al Eagle City, and at that time no instructions had been received to suspend  work. It is quite possible that grading  gangs will come with the suddenness  of the proverbial thief in the night,  and commence, svoik before we are well  aware of the fact���Grand Forks Gazette.  Summer Diarrhoea in Children*  During the hot weather of the summer months the first unnatural loose  ness of a child's bowels should have  immediate attention, so as to check the  disease before it.becomes serious. All  that is necessary is a few doses ot.  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea. Remedy followed by a dose  of castor oil to cleanse the system.  Rev. M. O. Stocklaud, pastor of the  ---Firstr-Mr-E.-ch u rch, Li t tie -Falls,=Mi n n -...-.  writes*. "We have used Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy for several years and find it  a very valuable remedy, especially for  summer disorders in children." Sold  by all drug-gists.  In a recently invented blowpipe  oxygen is used with acetylene, giving  very high temperatures bv reason of  the absence of inert nitrogen from the  flame. It is claimed that with this  blowpipe a rod of pure iron serves as a  soldering stick, and the heat is so great  that . little of the carbon in the flame  unites with the iron, converting it into  mild steel. Thi*-. blowpipe is excellent  for repairing iron ana steel in any  shape.   Stomach Troubles and Constipation.  No one can reasonably hope for good  digestion when the bowels are constipated.

Frequently his heirs do not fully appreciate the value of the dusty stones  or crystals that adorn the cabinet of  the deceased who may have been collecting thorn all his life from distant  pla< es to which the railroad fare often  is considerably less than the market  value of the specimen. Not that the  rock or crystal has great economic  value, but because its occurrence in the  peculiar form is rare and the demand  greater than the -supply. Often personal ���sentiment also becomes an equation of value between seller and buyer;  this trait has probably been inherited  from our forefathers, who cherished  curios on account of their unique associations whether of person  or place.  In recent years more attention has  been given to the collection of minerals, common and rare Occasionally  individuals sell or bequeath their cabinets to museums or educational institutions. Recently John D. Rockefeller  gave to the University of Chicago one  of the finest private collections of minerals in America. The collection is  that of the late Prof. James Hall, state  geologist of New York, and was valued  by him at $150,000.  An important accessory to a well  managed mining school is a good col  lection of minerals Tuition by objects imprints on the mind of the  student facts which are often hard to  explain verbally, or even difficult to  understand   from   textbooks.     Conse  quently most of our technical institutions are accumulating specimens by  purchase, gratuitous donation, or by  students in the summer schools which  make excursions to mining districts.  "We would suggest that miners scrutinize more carefully the minerals that  they shovel on the dump as worthless  because they do not contain 'the precious metals. Perhaps the peculiarly  formed rock or crystal thrown away as  waste may have the merit of making a  good cabinet specimen. Momentarily  there is an urgent demand for crystal-  ized gold. A short time ago quite an  extensive business was done in the  native silver from the Cobalt district  in Ontario, a territory which has produced a number of unique specimens  j of the rarer minerals.  Collectors for gain, or for sentiment,  will pay high prices for uncom:r.'oii  mineral specimens.���Mining World.  PORTABLE HOUSES  The development of miuing properties usually involves surface improvements of greater or less extent and the  error is frequeently made of spending  unwarranted sums on structures which  represent a permanent investment, and  which can not be removed in case the  prospect proves disrppointing. It even  happens that in coniiectioiil with the  operations of larger and well established companies the expenditure for bunk  boarding and other houses bears an  undue proportion to the entire investment.  Portable houses have been brought  into use by some large American mining companies.- One large company in  Arizona has a number in use and  they have been found highly adaptable  to use in a mining camp. The B. C,  Mills and Trading Co. of Vancouver  manufacture ready made houses in  many designs. The buildings are inexpensive and can be made to suit any  requirements, and being simply and  substantially built, can be set up by  any one possessing ordinary skill.  Being portable, these houses are well  adapted for the use of miners, as they  can easily be removed if the property  is abandoned.  " Make Hay While the Sun Shines. "  There is a iesson in the work of the  thrifty farmer. He knows that the  bright sunshine may last but a day,  and he prepares for the showers which  are so liable to follow. So it should  be with every household. Dysentery,  diarrhoea and cholera morbus may  attack some member of the home without warning. Chamberlain's Colic,  Chrtlera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which  is the best known medicine for these  diseases, should always be kept at  hand, as immediate treatment is neces  sary, and delay may prove fatal.

I  I  One of the largest land deals in  Southern British Columbia was consummated on Tuesday last, when R. G.  Sidley. .1. P., of Sidley, sold hi. ranch  to W. T. Hunter of Greenwood. Negotiations leading tip lo the transfer of  t the property were carried on for several  months. The price paid was in the  neighborhood of $50,000.  The Sidley ranch comains about  3,0d0 acres of lnnd. It is situated  along the International boundary line  On what is known as Sidley mountain,  a bon i 45 miles west of Greenwood  The soil i.s exceedingly fertile and  bumper crops of oats and oilier hardy  ! grams have been grown ilieiv year  after year.

In ; ddition t. the land on lllis  side of the boundary line the deal includes un assignment of leases of  Indian allotments immediately across  the line.  There is also a large amount of valuable timber on the property. Previous to the sale to Mr. Hunter, Mr.  Sidley disposed of several million feet  of standing limber to Porter Bros., the  well known railway contractors. A  large mill will be installed in the  vicinity and the timber will be used  largely for railway purposes.  Mr. Hunter has also acquired about  8,000 acres of C. P. K. land in that  locality, making all his holdings in  that locality,' inclusive of the Indian  lease?, about 13,000 acres.  Mr. Sidley is one of the oldest and  best known farmers in Southern British Columbia. Long before a railway  way was thought of, i-e spied ont the  rich lands of Sidley mountain and decided to make his home here and await  developments. Year after year he grew  bumper crops but was seriously handicapped hy lack of transportation facilities and distance from market. However, these drawbacks are now a thing  of the past, and his perseverance and  industry have been rewarded by a  small fortune.  Mr. Sidley retains for himself some  lands, his store and hotel .buildings.  He.will also harvest this year's crops.  H. returned to his home on Wednesday  morning.

GREYHOUND BONDED  The Grey hound lriin., in Deadwood  camp, has been bonded. L. H. Moffatt,  M. E., of Rossland, and his associates  in the Rathmuellen group, have acquired the property from Wm.

GEORGIA MINSTRELS  To those who enjoy mirth, music aud  song, the coming of Richards & Prin-  gle's Famous Georgia Minstrels will  be hailed with delight. This sterling  organization has ���,eathered the theatrical seas for 2S years never changing  management, and not once departing  from iheir established rule of presenting only what is greal, good and  wholesome in theinins'rel world. Other  minstrel companies have come and  gone, but Richards & Pringle's-go on  forever. The secret of their success  has been the fact that the management  has always firmly believed that the  paying public craved a genuine colored  minstrel performance when presented  on the lines that made minstrelsy so  populai years ago; their belief has  been proven to be the correct one.  Sweet southern melodies, beautiful  and entrancing music by skilled musicians, dancing as only the negro can  dance, and witicisms told only as the  darkey can tell them, Clarence Powell,  the comedian, who has made the whole  world laugh, is still at the head of tie  list of artists, and will bring with him  this-seaso!!_iuhigJjtidge.t_.of_go.odJ;.lniigs_  which he has collected during the past  summer.
