EVERYTHING    PROSPERS  A Review of tlie Camp and District  Is Stimulating In Its Effect. -  Trade Is Good.  Greenwood business and outlook  were never s--o good as today. There  are those who sit under the shadow of  our recent ten-day ��� strike and groan,  but the fact cannot be disputed that  the business condition is good. En-  corragement is written on the face of  everything.  In real estate circles only, there is no  activity, and even this is a matter of  wonder, because rents are fairly good,  little improved property is vacant and  a steady demand exists for better cottages.        .,-���->-  The indusirial conditions about us  are all good. Labor is busy at satisfactory wage, and no idle men are to  be found.- The market for the district's  only product is active and at steadily  stiffening prices.  The industries of the camp are all  operative,: presumably on a sound  basis. If the Granby during the year  has been able to declare $1,620,000 dividends out of earnings, the other copper plants of the district working on  just as good ore, and at no greater expense, must be making money too,even  if hot declaring dividends.  The B. C. Copper Co.'s plant is near-  ing completion. The third furnace is  now in commission and working  smoothly: 'To meet the capacity demands of -1,800 tons daily of this plant  the company is getting all of its properties into fine shipping order. The  Mother L*ode pay roll is larger today  than it was before the recent strike.  The Dominion Copper Co. is forging  ahead, enlarging and. bettering its  plant, and in a few weeks will be handling 1.300 tons daily.  The three large companies of the  district will be mining and reducing  nearly 6,000 tons daily in a short time,  and placing a value of $5 on the ore,  that means that 530,000 daily of earth  wealth will be released from where it  has been stowed for the ages, and made  to minister to man.  New and encouraging factors have  entered-the^locaH_eld^recentlyr=7Iust  west of town the Greyhound is making  a bid for public notice? The property,  long believed to be a mine, is daily being demonstrated as such. !  The Denoro and Emma and B. C.  are employing a large number of men  and that number must steadily grow  if the latent possibilities of these great  properties are to be released.  On the Golconda the tunnel is being  extended. In Central camp new elements are at work, and on the Oro the  Hall Mines people are deepening the  shaft, while the newly formed development syndicate is working on the  Caberfae.  But this steady enlargement of the  circle of development in the low grades  is equally noticeable in the high. They  are all busy, the Providence, Prince  Henry, Elkhorn, Strathmore, Crescent,  Crescent Fraction, Skylark, Dynamo,  Mavis, E. P. U., Bay and others, busy  setting up machinery, sinking, drifting, stoping.  Bonds have been recently taken on  other properties, and still others are  being sought after.  The millions that the courageous  ones put into the earth have germinated, and the fruits therefrom are beginning to fall into deserving hands.  The year 1906 has been in every way  most aatisfactory. A healthy condition has existed ia all lines of trade  and today town aud district contain  more ground for intelligent trust than  ever before.

But the End Is Practically io Siffht.  The Greenwood City Water Works  company, which, by the way, is concerned in the lighting of the city, is  making fair progress toward the completion of what will be an up-to-date  plant. The name of the company,  which is a misnomer, occurred in this  wise. The company, of which Edward  G. Warren is manager, acquired with  the Boundary Falls power the old  charter of the above name acquired by  Robert Wood in 1897. This was found  of great advantage in many ways,  particularly in the acquisition of right  of way privileges. Later on the name  will probably be changed into one more  in keeping with the purpose of the  company, which is to give Greenwood  a first-class lighting system.  The company has spent a large  amount of money in getting its plant  installed, which, when completed, will  be modern in every particular.  A substantial dam Has been thrown  across Boundary creek at the Falls,  provided with every precaution against  danger from logs or other drift. The  power houseis 1,500 feet lower' down  the canyon; Between the dam and the  power house a 30-inch wood stave pipe,  steel bound, is laid. An effective head  of 133 feet is thus secured, affording a  day and night average of 80 'horse  power. The concrete and masonry  dams and adjuncts are so built to allow  of thecheight being increased if it be-  become necessary7to impound more  water than now provided for, which  will be a million cubic feet daily.  Over four tons of copper wire have  been strung between the falls arid the  city and the line is a first-class one.  <��������� The plant, whose primary object is  merely to light Greenwood ancl other  valley points, is so arranged that additional power may be acquired from  one of the big power companies, and,  if necessary, the small mines about  Greenwood may be served without any  prejudice to the final obect of the company, the city lighting.  ^^The" water "wheeirwhich" was"ordered~  on June 5th last, for delivery in 75  days, and is thus behind contract time,  is at last on the way. By the time it  arrives here everything else will be in  completed condition. The city is thus  encouraged to bear with equanimity  its present rather poor light, assured  that a remedy therefor is only to be  had in the new plant, and that the day  of brighter things will soon he here.  GAME PRESERVE  Congress of the United States  has passed a bill setting aside a  game preserve in the Olympics  of Washington, containing 700,-  000 acres. The country has seen  the American bison pass away,  victims of man's lust to kill, and  this step is now taken to preserve  the greatest remaining herd of  elks in the country. The Olympics are a natural game haunt,  the best in the United States. In  a few years here will be found  the rival of Yellowstone Park  for natural scenery and abundance of big game.  IMMIGRANTS COMING  Arrangements have been perfected between Hon. R. G. Tatlow, representing the provincial  government, and Commissioner  Coombes of the Salvation army,  which will enable the latter to  provide a large number of desirable immigrants for the province.  The immigrants will begin to arrive during this winter, and a  total of 2,000 is expected to come  during 1907.  m 7  ADDITIONAL LOCAL  C. B.

It certainly gives a man a good appetite to glance in the .windows of P.  Burns & Co. aud see the cleanliness of  the place and the display of toothsome  meats.  Although L,ogan & Co. lost part of a  carload of diamonds and jewelry by  fire in tran.it recently, they have a  fine line of line things for the holiday  trade.  Rendell & Co.'s clerks are busy these  days showing the things that ladies  most delight in, those beautiful trappings for home or street wear. Pretty  busy on the men's side, too.  Thomas Drug Co. has a nice window  display. On one side the entrance  goods that appeal to the sense of smell,  aud on the other goods that appeal to  the sense of sound, are tastefully arranged .

The company as constituted at  present is practically the same  which left New York nineteen  months ago, and was organized  there for the purpose of presenting comic opera in Western Canada on a scale of liberality not  hitherto attempted. The original idea being fulfilled, aud the  fame of the company having  traveled far beyond the confines  of present action, the Roscians  will broaden the scope of primary  intentions, and invade new fields  witlrthe same^splendid - company  which has made the several Canadian tours artistically and financially successful.

Strange to say, although many attempts have  been made, no one ever succeeded in combining the  oil and iron until, quite recently, a Canadian physician, after some years of study and experiment, managed to solve the problem He then added just a  little phosphorus ; the result is  which contains in an elegant, palatable and easily  :- digested emulsion Cod Liver Oil, Iron and Phosphorus, the exact constituents necessary to Increase the  Weight, Enrich the Blood and Build up . the  System.

Mr. Price, advance agent for the  Great Mc.'/wen,who lias been in Greenwood _ for a few days past, was in a  communicative mood today. ,He expressed himself as delighted with the  patronage given his company here.  Mr. Price has been coming into the  Boundary for the C P. Walker company for several years, and notices  great improvement in the appearance  of the. Greenwood audiences. He spoke  particularly of the improved order in  the gallery here, as compared with  prcvi.us years. He thinks thai Greenwood is making very steady, substantial progress and says the town has a  good reputation in the east as'containing less hot air than many places.  We are vain enough to print his  complimentary reference to the Times  when he said he thought no paper in  the interior of British -Columbia compared with it in make up and material  but the Cranbrook Herald, edited by  old man Simpson, but he thought the  Herald had a little the best of che comparison.  He thinks there are few amusement  managers to compare with Mr. Walker.  In speaking of Walker's new theater  in Winnipeg, he classed it as without  a rival in Western Canada, and with  only one in Chicago equal to it. ,  Of course, Mr. Price is a business  man, and doubtless hot-airad us about  our paper and the town, but then we  wouldn't be expected to print it if it  had been otherwise. His flattering  words, however, were backed up by an  order for 30,000 handbills, to be used  elsewhere.  Mr. Price is always a welcome visitor at the Times office, because he is  always bright ond cheery, and his  visits leave no depression.  COAL LAND WITHDRAWN  It is not wise that the nation should  alienate its remaining coal lands. I  have temporarily withdrawn from  settlement all the lands which tbe  geological survey has indicated as  containing, or in all probability containing coal. The question, however,  can be properly settled only by legislation, which in my judgment should  provide for the withdrawal of these  lands from sale or from entry, save in  certain especial circumstance... The  ownership would- then remain in the  United States, which' should not, how  ever, attempt to work them, bat permit  them to be worked by private individuals under a royalty system, the government keeping such control as to  permit it to see that no excessive price  was charged consumers. It would, of  course, be as necessary to supervise  the rates charged by the common car  riers to transport the product at the  rates charged by those who mine it;  and the supervision must extend to the  conduct of the common carriers, so  that they shall in no way favor one  competitor at the expanse of another.  The withdrawal of these coal lands  would constitute a policy analagous to.  that'which'has'-been^followed^in-withdrawing the forest lands from ordinary,  settlement. The coal, like the forests,  should be treated as the property of  the public avd its disposal should be  under conditions which would inure to  the benefit of th 3 public as a whole.

Sitting iu the police court the  other day, we witnessed the administration of an oath, which  se& us thinking'. An unclean  ttian, just from a cell, that doubtless was none too sauitary, was  requested to kiss the Bible, which  he did. Dozens of others, hundreds doubtless, scarcely any  cleaner, many of them possibly  less clean, had kissed the same  book in the same spot, and many  others will still kiss it. is this a  cleanly habit, and if not, is it  necessary to maintain the practice? There may be superstitious  people to whom kissing the Bible  is so impressive that they are  constrained to tell the truth when  they otherwise would not. But  we think the number is few and  tliat, the man who is going to  give false evidence will do it as a  rule as readily when it is accompanied -with this formality as  without. Modern science is trying to cope with disease. Phi-  lanthrophy and brotherhood are  trying to alleviate and reduce the  penalties of the white plague.  And   yet  the   administration  of  justice by this unclean aud pernicious pracLice is daily, hourly  lending itself to the spread of  disease. We substitute the electric chair for the hangman's rope  to reduce the pain aud relieve the  horror attaching to capital punishment, and yet we show less  consideration to these who are  felons. Those doomed to die we  strive to relieve; those doomed  to live we are careless about.  We certainly have outgrown  the sentiment that a declaration  on honor is less sacred than one  on lhe Bible, because a man who  regards the Bible as a sacred  bo'ik regards his honor as sacred  loo, and with the man who regards neither as sacred, nothing  is gained by the administration  of a Book-kissed oath.  These words are in no sense intended to be construed as a criticism in any way of the true worth  of the book of all books, or an  impugnment of the sensibilities  of those who revere it. They  are merely a criticism of a filthy  practice maintained, not so much  by the requir.ments of law as by  the customs of the courts in the  law's administration.  It is, at the same time, respect  for the Bible and regar.i for the  welfare of man that prompts us  to say that kissing the book is a  custom that ought to be done  away with.  EDITORIAL  NOTES  In the public squares of Glasgow you will run across the "peoples' parliaments," the places  where men congregate to discuss  questions of the day���politics aud  religion���and so in most small  towns there are places like the  grocery store at the cross roads,  where men meet to discuss men  and measures, but the worst of it  is that generally both men and  measures are interpreted in the  worst light possible.  Tl&e Permanent Style and  Sfettpe cf -Semi-ready Garment!  Brcxyone wants style in his clothes.  Some men say they don't, but they  are mistaken.  Almost all ready-made clothing has  ftyle in it. In fact, it is style that sells  half the ordinary ready-made clothes.  But there are two kinds of style���  surface style and through-and-through  tailored style. There is as much differ-  ���nce between them as there is between a  wooden house painted to look like stone  and a solid stone house.  Surface-style is created principally In  the pressing room���put in with the hot  iron���it pleases you when you try it on,  but after a couple of weeks w.ar it  looks as if it had been drawn through  a knot-hole.  Our styles are designed by the acknowledged bast clothing designer in  America. Semi-ready styles are right���  then we tailor them permanently.  Semi-ready style is built from the  foundation out. Every step in the construction is in the hands of expert  tailors. The shoulders are permanently  stitch - moulded into shape (._..��� the  illustration), not pressed and shrunk by  a hot iron only to sa^ out of shape  after a little wear.  Every part of every Semi-ready garment is stitched into permanent shape.  If the least unevenness shows it is ripped  and rt-atitched, not smoothed over with  a hot iron. Every garment is passed  by an expert as perfect iu shape beforo  it goes to the pressers.  Semi-ready fit is a certainty. Ou*  plan of physique types cover every class  of figure. Short stouts and tall stouts,  sloping shoulders and over-erect, all  variations of figure are provided for In  the Semi-ready plan.  These points give you style, fit and  comfort now for wear.  Every piece of cloth that comes into  our tailorey has been selected at the  mill by our cloth experts; before it is  placed in stock it is tested by the most  s .vere tests. Some cloth men say we  are too severe, but we think not, for  we put our reputation back of every  thread of it when we sew the Semi-  ready label in a garment.  The silk-sewn seams, the carefully  selected linings, the perfectly made  button-holes, every little detail is carefully watched so as to make Semi-ready  tailoring the best produced.  You can see the style, fit and fitness  of ��a. Semi-ready garment when you  try it on���there is no guess work���and  our guarantee covers any possible development.  Next time you are thinking of clotheo  drop in and see us���in j ustice to yourself, you should investigate our claims.  5��4  $emi-read;y*  Tailoring  P. W. GEORGE & CO.  The railroads that are making  more millions than ever confess  their inability to supply cars  enough to haul coal sufficient to  keep the people of the country  warm. Fourteen dollars a ton  for coal in Seattle, and at tliat  not enough obtainable to keep the  fires going. And yet there are  ccal mines on all sides of the  city. We wonder if such things  ought to be.  The foolishness of the parent  who surrounds his child with indolence and luxury to his inevitable  undoing, and then strives to reform him, is like the governtlent  which makes laws that create  giant evils and then strives to reform that evil by remedial legislation.  We trust that the talk of possible war between the United  States and Japan has no foundation in fact. Where would Britain find herself in such an emergency, with a blood alliance on  one hand and a treaty obligation  on the other.  The tariff has been adjusted,  reduced fti instances, and the free  list has been increased, but how  much more tobacco will you get  for a quarter, or how much less  will a dozen cans of corn or, a  pound of tea cost?

THE CANADIAN  OF CO  Greenwood differs from most  places if the man who has a mine  doesn't think he has a good one,  and the one who doesn't have  believes his neighbor's is any  good anyway.  Make sure of a clean shirt before you burn up the soiled one.  Now, let no wag paraphrase that  to read make sure of timber for a'  new bridge before you tear down  the old. ���'  Although an optimistic view  of things is good for both individual and community, it is. wonderful how few like to look on  the bright side of things at home.  We are very apt to be ourselves  just what we think our neighbors  to be. Doubt is born of the devil  and a want of faith in humanity  is the verv essence of untruth.  Like the man who is going to  reform, the Midway & Vernon is  going to build some day. But an  evil agency prevents any show of  progress iu either direction.  The boom and brightness  always seem to apply to the place  where we don't happen to be, so  deceptive are the glasses throngh  which we best like to look.  Did you ever stop to think that  while gold scales would weigh  your kindly thoughts and utter-  jances, it wouldtake a hay ^cale  for your unhappy ones!!

Olaf Johnston, for many years  a highly respected citizen of  Greenwood, and recently of Midway, died at the Sisters' hospital  Monday morning last. Johnston  delayed an appeal to medical  science for relief for a most dangerous trouble too long, and with  the above result. On Wednesday  last he was taken painfully ill  with a strangulated femoral  hernia, but did not seek help until  Saturday evening, when he came  to Greenwood. But he came too  late, for before surgery could anticipate it, death had marked its  victim.  Wickwire  WHY NOT HERE?

Bandfair on Tuesday evening  last, at the Auditorium, uuder tbe  auspices of the Greenwood Concert Band, was au immense success.  A fine assortment of beautiful!  things had been contributed for  the event and these had been  tastefully arranged around the  hall. During the evening a lively  market therein prevailed. In one  corner about 50 sofa pillows,  ranging in value from $5 to $15,  were tastefully placed and spoke  volumes at once for the artistic  qualities and the generous instincts of the donors.  A candy booth raked in a great  many shekels, and a bean guessing contest netted a great many  quarters.  A substantial meal of brown  bread and beans, with lots of  trimmings of salads and sweets,  was served for a quarter, and the  fair waitresses were kept busy  for"several hours gratifying the  appetites of the patrons of this  attractive feature.  The speculative spirit ran high  and everybody bought chances for  everything that came along.  During the evening the band  played choice music at intervals,  and everybody appeared to have  a good time.  That so deserving a cause was  so generously patronized, and so  successfully carried out, is matter  of congratulation.  LADY POINTS THE MORAL  '.2 - 5^x* r?_i-__>. .-i_3__  _&_J6_-A^-BSV  Experience of a Prominent M. P. in  Buying ClottieS,  T. P. O'Connor, M. P., who is very  fond of experiments and chances of all  kinds, entered a small London draper's  shop in Chelsea and ordered himself a  suit of tweed The result was a suit  with delicate feminine touch everywhere perceptible���particularly in a  low-necked coat. The only person  benefitted by the transaction was the  draper. And his wife, who tells the  tale, also points the moral, "Misfits  and cheap materials are always uneconomical."  With excellent materials, chosen  with taste, the Semi-ready tailaring  has captured the fancy of men who a  few years ago, would have scoffed at  the idea of wearing a suit of clothes  made the way on.; formerly had shoes  custom made. One can buy five widths  in shoes and 175 styles���all fitting  better than custom made shoes, and the  Semi-ready tailoring idea is divided  into physique types, subdivided into  forms, and again into sizes.  P. W. George & Co. will be pleased  to show you how what "Semi-r.ady"  tailoring profits the wearer.  MEN OF HEART  JUDGE CLEMENT PROMOTED  There seems to be no doubt  that our last week's Ottawa advices relative to the promotiou of  Judge Clement were well founded.  The Judge is receiving the congratulations of his friends, which  are legion. The Judge, the dis--  trict and the bench are all honored in this appointment. Natural ability of a high order, first  class legal training and a high  type of manhood combine iu this  latest appointee to the Supreme  Court bench to make the choice  particularly happy. We trust  that the Judge may find it possible to continue his residence in  the district.

The Great McEwen gave the people  of Gieenwood two good entertainments  this week. His card tricks, his deeds  of magic^and his mesmeric feats were  a wonder and a delight. They are all  doubtless explainable, but they transcend ordinary intelligence.  To make people think they see things  they don't see, and to hear things they  don't hear, and feel things they don't  feel, is simply the result of the action  of one mind on another, but the trunk  trick must come under some other  category. To substitute a lady for a  gentlemau in a trunk locked and bound  in every direction by ropes tied by a  committee from the audience, and all  in the soace of six seconds, was a trick  that everybody was at sea on. All  that may be said is that McEwen does  the tricks and the people do the wondering and the laughing.  Gold and Silver Mountings.

STEVENS  Editor and Publisher.  453 Postoffice Block, Houghton,  Michigan.  TOOK CARBOLIC ACID  Close Call fora Lovelorn Ma den in  the Nicola Valley.  Coutlee, Dec. 6.���This part of the  Nicola valley was thrown into a state  of excitement by a series of sensational  incidents iu which Miss May, daughtet  of a prominent citizen, R C. Campbell-  Johnston, M. E., was foiled first in an  attempt to elope, and later to commit  suicide.  The family at present is residing at  Forksdale, about two miles above here.  Johnny Chapman, a respectable young  man, lives at Lower Nicola- four miles  below here. The family of Mr. Campbell- Johnston <- resided last summer at  Lower Nicola. V. hilesojourning in that  pretty burg Miss Campbell-Johnston  and Mr. Chapman met frequently in  the daily intercourse of the social life  of the village, and the usual result followed, Cupid lodging his winged shaft  through two youthful hearts. But the  course of true love does not run any  more smoothly in the Nicola valley  than elsewhere, and the big obstacle in  this case was Papa Campbell-Johnston,  who was no inconsiderable factor, being  a man of six feet and powerful in build.  But love laughs at locks and keys and  parental wrath in Nicola valley also,  as elsewhere, and Mr. Chapman determined to possess his ladylove without papa's consent if he could not haue  it, so he started for the government  agent's office at Nicola, where he intended to secure a marriage license.  WARNING HAD BEEN GIVEN.  But it is said that Mr. Campbell-  Johnston, anticipating his intention,  had telephoned down to the agent not  to issue a license. Miss Campbell-  Johnstone is a few days over 18, but  does no"- look to be that age. However,  Mr. Chapman, when he found he could  not get the license, turned and rode  back to Lower ,Nicola, twelve miles  away.  Meantime a messenger rode hotfoot  from Nicola to Forksdale and warned  the irate parent of John's movements.  Papa is said to have sworn to shoot  young Chapman on sight, and Miss  May, fearing for her lover's life, cut  through the fields, crossed the Cold-  water bridge and fled down the track  to Coutlee. Here she frantically begged  for a horse and saddle, aud barring the  saddle, a horse at any rate. Miss  Campbell-Johnston is known in the  valley as a daring rider, and had she  secured a c?_yuse, she would undoubtedly have won the race. But, alas,  there was no available horse at Coutlee.  Mrs. Richards tried to reason with  and soothe the excited girl, who was  hysterical with fright and terror for the  life of her lover, but she started down  the road to Lower Nicola on foot.  GIRL WAS  OVERTAKEN.  But Nemesis mounted will' catch the  flying fee. of love, no matter how  ardent, no matter how the anguished  heart burns to reach its goal, and  Nemesis in the^forms of Walter Clark,  provincial constable, and Johnny Murray of Nicola, well mounted, overtook  the fleeing girl at the springs, a mile  below Coutlee,wh?rethey wete speedily  joined-by��� papa,-bareheaded^and-run-  ning on foot.  The half fainting maiden was placed  on one of the horses and taken back to  her home at Forksdale. She immediately repaired to her bedroom and a  few minutes later the horrible discovery was made that in her half demented  condition of excitement anil hysteria  she had swallowed the contents of a  bottle containing carbolic acid. Swift  running messengers quickly summoned  Dr R. H. Iv. Ker from tbe construclion  hospital camp, and Dr. Tuthill from  Nicola, the former arriving first. After  two hours of desperate work on the  part of the doctors, Miss Campbell-  Johnston was pronounced out ofdanger  The young man has gone to Vancouver. His prospective father-in-law  formerly resided in the Sloean and  Boundary districts.  POLITICAL GOSSIP  V_erot--A, Dec. 8.���On the authority  of one of the ministers of the British  Columbia government, it may be said  that there is only a microscopic possibility and not the slightest probability  of an immediate dissolution of the  legislature and appeal tothe country.  Both will come, according to present  expectations, during the summer of  1907���the election about the middle of  July.  "There is no earthly reason for an  immediate dissolution and the disturbance of p"'jvinc!_l business conditions  by a premature eleetion," said a very  prominent member of the house in  close touch with the government, to  your correspondent. "I don't imagine  that anyone seriously thought of such a.  thing, although some of the newspapers  printed the 'news' with big headlines  to keep alive a .s.mWanc.* of p.">-:tical  activity. The natural life of the present parliament does not end until November next. The business ol: the  country is going on smoothly ancl with  little bona fide complaint from the  country. The only excuse there could  have been for an election just now was  the better terms issue, which Pr. mier  McBrice might possibly h,ive made  capital of had he so wished, and gone  to the country im mediately after his  return from Ottawa. That he di I not  do so is sufFicieiitcontradiction in itself  of the charge that he is trying to nake  apolitical issue out of a non-partisan  public question upon which then- are  no major differences of upiniou in the  province. You may sot it clown as  certain that there will be no election  until after another session���which may  very possibly open on Thursday, January 10. For no government in its senses  would miss the opportunity of taking  full credit ou the floor of the house for  the splendid surplus that Finance'Minister Tatlow will be able to announce  in his next budget���the largest surplus  in Brilish Columbia's history and one  making passible some very considerable expenditures ou necessary and reproductive public works in ail parts of  the province before the people are  called upon to judge the present administration upon its record. This  surplus is, of course, to a large extent  attributable to the rapid growth of  timoer revenues, which far outrun the  estimates, supplemented by the proceeds of laud sale, notably at Point  Grey, which alone brought more than  half a million to the treasury. Do you  suppose any government would miss  the chance of presenting such a surplus  showing to the house and country by  precipitating an election with nothing  to be gained?  The really spectacular feature of the  next election when it does come, is  promised by the gossips to be found in  the position of Mr. Joseph Martin.  That Mr. Martin will again be in the  field seems generally understood. And  it is given credence, at the capital that  he will make his re-entry as a leader of  a new party���the fifth organized element in the campaign. The prophets  have even gone so far as to select. Mr.  Martin's ticket for him in Vancouver,  and to announce that it will consist of  Joseph Marthi, Frederick Buscombe,  John MacMillau, Hugh B. Gilmour and  R. Turnbull.���Dailv News.

Park, who firs-.:  became interested in the Ashcroft district through an article appearing in  the Journal giving a description of  some of the copper resources of thin  section, has devoted the past week to  an inspection of these deposits. He is.  very much impressed with what hi-  saw, and it is within the bounds of possibility that he may acquire some oi  the properties held locally. The lateness of the season has prevented him  from making a thorough inspection of  the 01 e bodies now being exposed. He  will, however, make this point his goal  in the early spring. The ore occurrences up Highland valley have interested him very deeply and he sincerely  regrets that he had not known of the  ore bodies here three or four months  ago.  Mr. Park is a man of very large experience and his opinion of such of  the district as he has been able to see  are corroborative of the claims of the  Journal that this district is likely to  prove one of the moist valuable copper  camps of Canada.  THE  -KANT.  Chesaw���A great chauge in the condition of affairs has taken place in  Chesaw during the past few weeks.  Stimulated by the completion of the  Gieat Northern into this section of the  country, and the purchase of the Grant  copper mines on Copper mountain by  Boundary capitalists, together with the  establishment of a steady cash grain  market here for all grain raised in the  Chesaw country, the people in all lines  show marked signs of the prosperity  for which they have been waiting for  years. The owners of mining claims  iu this district are bustling about getting their assessment work done, rejoicing over the fact that practical mining  men of prominence have at last recog  nized the good merits of Myers creek  mining district by .buying up claims in  $40,000 chunks and negotiating for  more.  RICH EUREKA.  Sandon���The Consolidated Mining  and Smelting company of Canada-  have in the Eureka, which is two miles  from town, a property which has all  the ear marks of a big mine. In No.  4 tunnel the whole face is a mass of  solid high grade steel galena. In No.  3 there is four feet, and in a winze recently started there is five feet of second class ore. An upraise to join this  winze and connect with No. 3 hvs been  begun, and there is four feet of solid  shipping ore for the distance of 50 feet  which has been driven.  WISE POWDERS.

MINING IN JAPAN  Mining interests in Japan are multiplying at a rate which suggests ___-  creased prosperity in the near future.  It is officially reported that about 2 p*er  cent of the total superficial area of the  Japanese empire, excepting Formosa  and Saghalien, is being prospected.  The copper output is growing rapidVy,  giving Japan fourth place among the  producing countries. In coal production Japan has jumped to the eigh-th  rank, and in petroleum it now occupies  fifth place. As a producer of sulphur  this country ranks next to Sicily amd  the United States. I^ast year Japan's  mineral production wasvalued at about  $38,000,000, while- exports were nearly  $16,000,000. In short, there is reason  to believe the mining industry of the  Mikado kingdom will show substantial  development, as many of its technical  men are putting into practice the  knowledge they have gained while visiting the United States and Europe.   .

POSTAL FACILITIES  Parcels up to five pounds in weight,  and with a size limit of thirty i..che_  in length and one foot in width and  depth, are now handled by the postal  service of the dominion. The further  extension of the work of the post office  department to include a postal express,  service for the prompt handling of  miscellaneous parcels will be in line  with the development of the postal  service which has gone on steadily  since the Liberal government tool-  office at Ottawa, enlarging- its usefulness to the public in many ways. It  will be a natural extension of the  governmental service already carried  on by the post office department. It  will not necessitate thectealion of new  machinery, nor the organization of a  new force of public service empkyees.  There can be no question of the public  aatisfaction with this promised estab.  liohment of an added public utility.  CONVINCING TESTIMONY  Mrs. H. H.

Wilson, sexton of, the  Church of Messiah, Toronto, and living at 63 Wickson avenue, has recently  told a press representative how Bileans  cured him of chronic biliousness, dizziness and liver troubles.  Mr. Wilson says: "Practically from  boyhood I have suffered from biliousness and liver anl stomach troubles,  and only recently I was cured by Bileans. After eating food I would have  acute pain until I vomited. Headache  troubled me very much, sometimes so  bad that I could hardly see. At other  times there would seem to be a rush of  something to my head. I should turn  dizzy and I have even fallen down in  the street. The biliousness was so bad  that for long periods at a time I have  -.been-unable_to_take_food,^Bileans_\yere  recommended to me, and I gave them  a fair trial. To my delight they were  equal to my case, and after a short  course they cured me completely. 1  now enjoy the best of health, and am  free entirely from the ailments which  caused me such acute suffering for so  long. Bileans are worth their weight  in gold,"  Bileans are altogether different to  ordinary medicine. They are compounded from vegetable essences and  are free from alcohol, bismuth, mercury, or any of the harmful mineral  ingredients and-poisons found in so  n��any   liver  and   stomach    remedies.  They have the support of many eminent scientists and' are frequently  prescribed as a cure for constipation,  piles and stomach, liver and intestinal  diseases generally. They also cure  female ailments and irregularities,  headache, debility, dizzy spells, heartburn, palpitation, heat flushes, etc. As  a general tonic they are unequalled as  a family remedy. All druggists sell  them at SO cents a box, or post free  from the Bilean Co., Toronto, upon  receipt of price.    Six boxes for S2..S0.  ALBERTA'S FORESIGHT  The Alberta government does not  make much noise, but it keeps on doing  things. It has a telephone policy, which  has no resemblance, however, to the  Roblin government's scheme. The  Alberta government, having decided  that publicly owned telephones were  desirable, has begun, without ostentation or any fuss and feathers, to build  telephone.lines.^ Ti'he.first line-isnow  actually under construction between  Calgary and Banff; and the second line  between Edmonton and Iyloydminster  is to be begun in the near future.  Other lines are to be built as speedily  as possible; and later they will be  linked together.

PAY ORE COLUMN  The Sally, of Beaverdell, is  shipping* another car of ore.  Going down, down, down, and  all the way on ore in the Crescent.  Only about 25 feet remain to  be completed on tlie Prince Henry  contract.  ' The E. P. U. tunnel is now in  about 216 feet. The formation  is changing, granite coming in.  The Golconda tunnel contract  nears completion. Will it-reach  the ore body? Everybody hopes  so.  How does this sound? An assay value of $2,901.40 per ton for  quite a percentage of the recent  car shipment from the Mavis.  The Skylark, at the bottom of  its new shaft, has struck the ore  body, the diamond drill having  located the vein rich and strong.  Between this and the end of the  year the Skylark will ship three  cars of ore, one of first to Nelson  and two of second to the Granb}*.  The tunnel being run on the  Rambler at Beaverdell, to catch  the ore at greater depth, encountered the lead at the point expected  a hundred feet from the portal.  A fine new rawhide trail has  been completed down Dry creek,  and ore shipping will be resumed  in the near future.  Harry H. Shallenberger,. manager of the Alliance Gold Mining  company, with headquarters at  Minneapolis, placed an order  Wednesday last with E. G. Warren for a 20-horseppwer electric  Denyer hoist.

To relieve a cough or break up a cold  in twenty-four hours, the following  simple formula, the" ingredients of  which can be obtained of any good  prescription druggist at small cost, is  all that will be required: Virgiu Oil  of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half  pint. Shake well and take in teaspcon*  ful doses every four hours. Thedesited  results caa not be obtained unless the  ingredients are pbre. It is therefore  better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin Oil ot Pine (Pure) should  be purchased in the original half ounce  vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is securely sealed in  a round wooden cas�� which protects  the Oil irom exposure to light. Around  the wooden case is an engraved wrapper with the name���"Virgin Oil of  Pme (Purey''7^plainly printed thereon.  There are many imitations and cheap  productions of Pine, but these only  create nausea, and.never effect the  desired results, 11-24  THE B.'C PERMANENT  The B. C. Permanent Loan arid  Savings company, which has a  number of "stockholders in Greenwood and vicinity, and which has  been instrumental in assisting a  large number of people locally to  build homes, is.making a wonderful record. Those most intimately  acquainted with the company's  history and results are the most  anxious to increase their holdings  in the concern. Recently a new  issue of shares, Class A, were put  on the market and the officers and  directors were the first subscribers., The directors are greatly  pleased with the fact that the  ci_ss "C" accumulative stock is  maturing right on the time originally estimated. The second  series of class "C" stock matured  on November 30th, and cheques  were sent to the fortunate holders  for the full amount invested and  8^ per cent monthly compound  interest.
