II  ed on very good authority that the  road from here to Midway is settled on.  In the bed of Rock creek are out-  croppings of coal. From the work  done it is apparent that there are two  or three seams of good butiminous  coal lying nearly, flat and extending  over a considerable area. The seams  only need prospecting with a diamond  drill to prove the existence of a good  coal mine. What this would mean to  that locality of a smelter at say Midway may be estimated from the:fact  that at present the nearest source of  supply is the Crow's Nest, over 400  miles .away.  It is most earnestly to be hoped that  immediate railway construction will be  begun to open up the country west and  north of here. The route of the Midway & Vernon railway taps the whole  of the Kettle river mining section and  would undoubtedly become a very  active feeder for any smelter at Midway, if such is really seriously thought  of. It is understood that plans for  building the road this summer are in  an advanced stage towards completion.  There were also two prominent  Chicagoans in town on Monday, yiz.,  Messrs. McPherson and Dow. Mr.  McPherson is an in.limate friend of  Mayor-elect Dunne of Chicago and had  to hurry away home on Tuesday morning, having been appointed one of the  members of the committee to arrange  for the entertainment of an eminent  Scottish traction expert from Glasgow  who is expected to arrive in the big  city very soon.  The Chicago daily News of April 10  has tne following concerning this visit:  "Mayor-elect Dunne has appointed a  committee to arrange for entertaining  James Dalrymple, the Glasgow traction expert, on his arrival here. The  committee at present is made up of  John C. McPherson, Maxwell Edgar,  Aldermen Ruxton, Badenoch and Hunter, three Scotchmen of the council, H.  M. Ashton and James O'Shaughnessy.  Others will be added later. It is  planned to have a banquet at the auditorium and a reception. Mayor Dunne  will deliver the address of welcome  and James Hamilton Lewis will prob-  a'hly_be ;toastmaster." *  Messrs. McPherson and Dow were  here visiting some of the high grade  mines, in which so many men monied  men of the windy city are interested.  Mr. Dow is a mining man of wide  experince and was so impressed with  B.C., this being his first visit, that he  said were he not tied up elsewhere he  should most certainly come here and  operate. He said: "I may come anyway."  Before leaving Mr. McPherson said  he understood that Mayor Dunne and  Representative Fox, would visit Greenwood very shortly. Mr. Fox is chairman of the naval appropriation bureau  and has been appointed by President  Roosevelt on the Phillipine commission. He anticipates being able to  take a run in the Boundary on his way  west to take steamship for Manilla.  MINING  J,  C. Haas,   M.

There have been,a large number of  visitors here during the week. On  Sunday Mr. F. I_. Underwood and Mr.  W. H. Thomas, the president and consulting engineer respectively, ��� of the  B C. Copper Co., arrived from New  York. On the same day Messrs. W.  N. Merrian and T. Fillerschon, of  Duluth, arrived. The whole party left  for the Similkameen on Tuesday morning followed shortly afterwards by Mr.  AHison. the local7manager of the Canadian Bank of Conmerce. Although  nothing really definite is known of the  business these gentlemen are visiting  the Similkameen, it is fairly safe to  assume tliat it has something to do  with the proposed railway construction  and the immediate necessity of providing -.melter facilities for the mines of  Chesaw, Republic and the ..various  camps tributary to the Kettle river and  its branchee.  That there will be urgent need for a  very large smelting plant, to treat the  immense bodies of ore simply waiting^  for railways, no one, who has any idea  of the great mineral wealth of the  country proposed tu be served, can  doubt for a minute. It is acknowledged  ou all sides that the B. C. Copper Co.  has secured an option on a large tract  of land at Midway, presumably for  smeller purposes. It is altogether  j��j probable that Mr. Underwood's visit  may be to look into the feasibility of  operating successfully at that point.  There is no doubt that Midway offers  very many inducements as a smelter  site, especially if the Great Northern  build both east to here and west to  Similkameen as many hope they may  yet do.

E., of Spokane, arrived in the city Wednesday oh his regular fortnightly visit to the -'Golconda  group o* mines, which are being extensively developed undor his direction.  The group is situated in south Dead-  wood camp, about a mile and a half  west of the Republic group' and about  two and a half miles; from the. C, & W.  Ry. There are six claims in the group  viz., .Golconda', Cleveland, Laocoon,  Wild Rose, Gold Bed and 'YJork, The  operating, company is registered /at  Sherbrook, Que., and Hon. Geo. E.  Foster is heavily Interested as is also  Rufus Pope and several other prominent eastern politicians and business  men.  The operating company, The Golconda Mines, Ltd., are very well fixed  financially and are prosecuting the development with vigor. Originally a  shaft was sunk on the Golconda on the  vein, to a depth of 65 feet bnt there  was so much water encountered that  ���he company decided to run a tunnel.to  crosscut the ledge at a.depth .of' 275  feet. This tunnel is now in a distance  of 350 feet and it is expected that the  ledge will be struck 150 feet.furtheron.  The tunnel will be completed, according to *he present rate of progress  about 1st of August next and from  there on the work done will be in the  nature of opening up the ore body for  shipping. Drifts will be run each -way  along the ore body and a raise will  connect with the present shaft so as to  ensure thorough ventilation.  The vein runs from two to eight feet  in width and carries values in gold  only of from $8 to $40 per ton. It ia  expected that the ore to be shipped will  average about S12.00.  The ore is arsenical andjron pyrites  and will be shipped to one of the local  smelters. ��� The company anticipates *  possibly installing a 'cya'niding. plant  in the future but plans for such have,  as yet. not been completed and scarcely  seriously considered. .,7 ..,-,   .--"...'���"���  Mr. Haas was asked about the proposed visit here of the American Institute of Mining Engineersr-ahd said he  would-do-all^he'-could-as^a^rhensb'cr-of���  that institution to induce as many,  members as possible to ' visit Greenwood and the mines tributary. He  said he had received a programme of  the B. C. visit and June,29th was  marked Granbv, meaning, of course,  that a visit lo Grand Forks aiid Phoenix had been arranged for. It should  not be a difficult matter, Mr. Haas  said, to get a large number of visitors  to extend their journey to Greenwood.  In another column the matter has received attention and it is earnestly  hoped that some steps will be taken to  ensure an official visit from some members of the Iti-titme.  Mr. McAl'isler, smelter manager of  the U. C. Copper Co is posted, according to Mr. Haas, for member*.hip, and  Mr. KefTi'r told the writer last week  that he had personally invited several  of his friends, member* of the Institute, to visit the company's smelter  and mines and he believed there should  be no ftilTiculty in getting a fairly large  delegation to attend.  00  65  30  00  86  re-  wav   is  For Sale���First-class piano, less  than half price.

A SUGGESTION.  On June 27th next the American  Institute of Mining Engineers will  pay Nelson a visit. We do not know  whether any steps have, as yet, been  taken by the local members of the  " Instituter if "any ^xistV'to^H^ve-"tlte  visiting members visit Greenwood or  not. If not we venture to suggest that  they be taken at once in order to secure  this most desirable end. The Institute  meets at Vancouver in June and after  the convention the members to visit the  Yukon and various B. C. mining  points. Perhaps the Board of Trade  will undertake the necessarry arrangements. Such a visit, if it can be possibly secured, would prove of inestim  able benefit to the mining country  tributary to our own city.  About Rheumatism.  There are few diseases that inflict  more torture than rheumatism and  there is probably no disease for which  such a varied and useless lot of remedies have been suggested. To say  that i*" can be cured is, therefore, a  bold statement to make, but Chamberlain's Pain Balm, which enjoys an  extensive sale, has met with gret success in the treatment of this disease.  One application of Pain Balm will relieve the pain, and hundreds of sufferers have testified to permanent  cures by its use. Why suffer when  Pain Balm affords such quick relief  and costs but a trifle ?

Explains   Why    Manitoba  More   Territory-  Wanted  Ottawa, April 13, 1905.���A new  issue has been raised by the Conservative party. It is a desperate party  these days. Desperate measures are  resorted to and the services of desperate men are utilized in the effort to  compromise the Laurier government  and secure some political advantage  for the thrice' defeated Tory party.  From Halifax, N.S., to Victoria, B.C.,  the newspapers of the country have  been filled with lurid pictures of the  alleged interference of the papal ablegate in the politics of this country. An  effort was made by the Tory press and  the Tory politicians to connect Sir  Wilfrid Laurier and his government  with the negotiations between the  papal ablegate and the members of the  Manitoba government.  It is risky to do things after the  fashion of George Eulas Foster but the  risk is sometimes worth taking. Geo.  Eulas Foster has a penchant for analysis. Let us analyze this brand new  conspiracy.  In Manitoba they have a Conservative government. R. P. Roblin is  premier. Robert Rodgers is Minister  of Public Works and Colin Campbell  Attorney-General . The Roblin government has been connected with some  railway deals which, will not bear a too  rigid inspection. The more railway  deals a Tory government gets mixed  up in, the greater becomes the thirst  for that sort of thing. The Roblin  government has been negotiating another railway dealwhicl. has for its  object the construction of a railway  from Winnipeg-to James Bay. Mr.  Roblin was anxious to give a land  grant to the promoters of the road and  for this reason it was desirable that  the boundaries of Manitoba should be  extended to James Bay. -.','_���   ,,  Sometimes the common people do  not take kindly to railway deals and  Mr. Roblin took the additional precaution of trying to secure some additional  favorable public opinion. He went to  see His Grace, the Archbishop Lange-  vin of St. Boniface. He suggested to  His Grace that the Roblin government  would be pleased to have the support  of the Roman Catholic church in Mani  toba and- was prepared to make concessions favorable to the Catholic minority in Manitoba. His Grace had some  experience in the pabt with Conservative politiciaus and he took the precaution tp secure a letter from Mr. Roblin  setting forth what he was prepared to  do for the Catholic minority.  Mr. Campbell, attorney-general, Mr.  Rogers, minister of public works, came  to Ottawa to interview the government  in reference to the extension of the  Manitoba boundaries. Archbishop  Langevin knew they were coming. He  advised    the    papal    ablegate,   Mgr,  SbrTeftithat-th"ey"~wefe~,colnirrg;r~^He  considered this his duty in the interests of the Catholic minority of Mani  toba. He told the papal ablegate of  the conferences between Roblin and  himself and forwarded him a copy of  the amendments Mr. Roblin was prepared to give. His Grace did more  than this. He told the ablegate something of the men from Manitoba. He  advised that Campbell was a big  enough risk but under no circumstances  should he have anvthing to do with  Bob Rodgers. So the papal ablegate  invited Cnmpbell but did not invite  Rogers. He discussed with Mr. Campbell the condition of the Catholics of  Manitoba, so far as education is con  cerned and suggested to him that  Manitoba, could not expect the Catholics immediately outside of the boundaries of that province to be anxious to  join tbe province while tlie school laws  remained as at present. What followed is now well known to the public.  But there is another phase of the situation which is well worth; describing.  Mr. Rodgers has ambitions. They are  not very creditable ambitions under  the circumstances, but he still has  them. He wants to be premier of  Manitoba. To be '.remier of Manitoba  Mr. Roblin must be displaced. Mr.  Rodgers conceived a unique plan of  action. Ascertaining from Mr. Camp  bell what transpired at the conference  with the ablegate and knowing that  Mr. Roblin was committed to Archbishop Langevin he decided to ride the  Protestant horse in Manitoba. He  started on this mad career by publish- J  ing interviews in which he mendaciously endeavored to compromise Rt.  Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier. What was  his object? He hoped that the truth  would come out. He hoped that the  tale just told would be worked back  from   Mgr.     Sbretti     to    Archbishop  Langevin and from Ar.hbishop  Langevin to R. P. Roblin. The cry  then would be Roblin must go and the  going of Roblin would mean the coming of Rogers.  This new conspiracy recalls a similar  conspiracy- in the Tory party and it is  peculiarly fitting that George Eulas  Foster who was chief of the nest of  traitors in 1896 should be chieftan for  Mr. Rogers in 1905. It is not surprising that W. F. MacLeati, who is always out with his knife and is never  particular whether he sticks it into  a Grit or Tory, shonld be found boost-  iner the Rodgers' game in the House of  Commons.  Mr. Foster in his cold blooded way  told parliament the other day that so  long as grass grew and water ran he  will not be found fighting for principle  against the workers of the people. It  might be added that so long as grass  grows and water runs Mr. Foster will  always be found continually connected  with all conspiracies within his own  party. Yale-Cariboo.  In a recent issue of the Winnipeg  Free Fress a very appreciative article  appears concerning Dr. James Douglas  a copper mining magnate and a native  of Quebec.  Thirty years ago Dr. Douglas, then  a young man, left Canada to seek his  fortune in the United States. He is  now president of the Copper Queen  company in Arizona and of the El Paso  and Southwestern railway, some 400  miles long which links the various  holdings of the big mining concern  and unites them with the Southern and  Union Pacific lines.  The output of the mines is now 100,-  000,000 pounds of copper annually.  When Dr. Douglas took charge of the  original Copper Queen, its output was  ten pounds for every ton nowproduced  in the properties over which he now  holds sway. The owners v. ere offered  lands adjoining their original veins;  they asked Dr. Douglas to examine  them:and report. He found nothing of  particular value on the surface, but the  veins of the Copper Queen were so  large and rich that he was sure that  they must extend to the adjacent property. As this was offered for only  $40,000, he recommended a purchase.  His employers bought and they never  made a uetter Dargain.  And yet there was n time, in 1884,  when disaster and loss seemed close at  hand.- Both old and new veins seemed  all "but worked out, and no new leads  could be discovered. With courage  characteristic of the man, Dr. Douglas  kept on prospecting, when, one day,  just as even.he was well nigh ready to  abandon hope, he came upon a wonderfully rich deposit. This for some  months yielded no less than twenty-  three per cent, of pure metal, quite  fifteen times as much as does ordinary  ore. Of course, to such a bonanza  there were limits; and, while the ore,  as in all other mines, grew leaner, it  became harder to treat. As lower and  lower depths were reached their ore  was found to carry much combined sul-,  phur. Could this ore be dealt with so  as to compete with ore less troublesome? Yes Simply by burning the  sulphur out of the ore with a stream of  heated ore, on much the plan by which  Bessemer burned out carbon from pig  iron until in his converter only steel  remained behind. This process reduces to minutes what formerly  required hours, replaces hand labor by  machinery and is now conducted with  allied tasks at the town of Douglas,  Arizona, where every detail of the  plant marks the highest plane of effi-  ci"eli^_^'a"ski'llT~'Wh*e*e'-his=tb'wn=W6=w-  stands, with its population of seven  thousand souls, there wa.-i four years  ago nothing else but a tent, used as a  salo.n!  In 1885 the nearest railroad station  to Bisbee, the site of the original Copper Queen, was Fairbank, and teaming  for the intervening 37 miles cost$7 a  ton. Today the El Paso and Southwestern railroad, owned by the capi-  lists who control the Copper Queen,  charges but 22 cents for freighting a  tou of ore these 37 miles. So much for  the economy of the iron horse as  against the steed of llesh and blood. A  bold piece of engineering is displayed  in the line leading to the Detroit mine  one of the properties under Dr. Douglas' care. In a distance which, as the  crow (lies, is little more than a mile,  this road rises SOO feet by four loops  stretched out as a huge spiral. To this  mine perched on a range of hills absolutely arid, water has to be pumped  from the San Francisco river, to a  height of 1.500 feet. Both here and at  the mines iu Mexico, Dr. Douglas has  installed Crossley gas engines of high  economy; they yield a horse power for  an hour with either a pound and a  quarter of coal, or two pounds and  three-quarters of air-dried oak.  Dr. Douglas is on the board of  Queen's college, Kingston, Out., his  alma master; he has rendered gener  cus aid toward Morrin college in Quebec, where a few days ago he delivered  a stirring address. Four years ago  McGill university, Montreal, conferred  upon him tlie degree of doctor of laws.  He has remained a British subject  through all the years of his residence  in the United States, and regards with  keen interest the proposals of Mr.  Chamberlain for a closer knitting together of the various parts of the  empire.

EARN A  Comfortable Living  WITH  A '  Chatham Incubator  Poultry raising with a Chatham  Incubator is a very profitable and  easily managed occupation. Unless  you want to go into it extensively it  need take but very little of your time.  Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatry in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for more. That means a steady  market and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying. While she is hatching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying five or six dozen eggs. The  percentage of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham' Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. Between these walls  mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  as a rock. Chatham Incubators are  equipped with scientifically perfect  regulators which are an infallible  ���means of regulating the temperature.  No cash t�� pay until  October, 1905.  We will start you raising poultry  for profit with a Chatham Incubator  without one cent of money from you  until next Fall. That means that you  can take off seven or eight hatches  and make considerable money out of  the Incubator before the first payment  becomes due.  We couldn't make this offer if we  were not certain that if you accept it  you will get complete satisfaction, if  we were not positive that the Chatham  Incubator will pay you a handsome  yearly income.  This is a straightforward offer. We  make it to show our supreme confidence in the Chatham Incubator. We  want you to accept this offer as we  are sure of the satisfaction our Incubator will give. Every machine we  have put out so far has made other  sales in the same neighborhood.  Our offer is to send you a Chatham  Incubator at once, freight prepaid by  ub without one cent of cash from you.  You  make   your   first   payment In  October, 1905.

BOUNDARY CREEK   TIMES.  LOCAL  REVIEWS SESSION  Interesting Interview with  J. R. Brown, M. P. P.  HER EXPLAINS HIS POSITION  Gives  Good   Reasons   for   Voting  Against Smelter Act.  A reporter of the Boundary Creek  Times called on J. R. Brown, M.P.P.,  to hear what he had to say in respect  to the session of the B. C. legislature  which has just closed.  Mr. Brown said while some important bills were passed yet as stated in  the leading- article in the Victoria Colonist on the 8th day of April last, the  day when the house adjourned, the  session was a disappointing one, owing  to the failure of the government to  bringdown any railway legislation.  It was stated in the speech from the  throne that important railway legislation was under consideration. As the  session advanced and no measures  were brought down by the government  to provide better transportation facilities for any part of the province the  inability of the McBride administration to deal with such a serious problem  became it'.ore ahd more apparent. The  leader of the opposition in a vigorous  speech on the budget debate endeavored to spur up the government to do its  duty to the province. He assured the  government of the active cooperation  of the opposition in putting through  any fair and reasonable measure  which would insure increased railway  communication. On subsequent occasions Mr. Macdonald assailed the government for its evident intention to  prorogue the house without placing  before it any measures that would tend  to railway constructiod. Mr. Brown  pointed out the crying necessity of a  railway from Midway to the coast and  how argently it was demanded by the  people in the Boundary and Similkameen district as did also Mr. Shatford, member for Similkameen. Nothing, however, was done by the  government whether from fear of the  Socialists or from other causes, he was  unable to say.  One of the most important bills  brought before the house was the act  providing for an 8-hour day in smelters  introduced by Mr. Hawthorn waite. It  was defeated by a vote of 26 to 12.  While recognizing that 12 hours work  even if not continuous is excessive he  voted against it as did other Liberals  for the following reasons:  (1) The time was inopportune as  there had not been any demand by employees upon their employers to grant  a reduction of hours and consequently  it would be well to allow them an opportunity to endeavor to arrive at an  agreement respecting same before resorting to legislation. ''',������'.'  (2) That such a measure, if passed,  might precipitate an industrial crisis  and thus defeat the very object it had  in view, namely, bettering the condition of the-workinen.:^^^^./   aud Land Registry Act.  Quite a number of acts were slaughtered by the sudden closing of the  legislature. Among these was an act  introduced by the leader of opposition  to provide for the settlement of disputes with regard to coal and oil  licenses. This act was amended in  committee at the last sitting of the  house and consequently could not go  through the final stages the same day  if any member objected. Mr, Haw-  thornwaite objected although he had  not previously opposed the bill and  although requested by the attorney-  general to Avithdraw his objection refused to do so consequently the bill  was killed which is much to be regretted.  In the matter of appropriations  Greenwood riding gets $3000 which is  $500 more than last year. This amount is not sufficient and even in proportion to what other constituencies  pet is about $1000 less than it should  receive.  The session closed with the government in pow��r but it is weakened and  discredited on account of its failure to  to initiate any policy for the development of the province. Many Conservatives at the coast regard it with  disfavor on account of, its truckling  subservience to the Socialist wing of  its followers which makes it a Conservative government in name only and  in reality a hybrid combination forlthe  purpose of retaining power. i  ATHLESTAN PAID FOR  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy the Best  and Most Popular.  "Mothers buy it for croupy children,  railroad men buy it'for severe coughs  and elderly people buy it for la grippe,"  say Moore -Bros,, Eldon, Iowa. "We  sell more of Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy than any other kind. It seems  to have taken the lead over several  other good brands." There i.s no  question but this medicine is the  best that can be procured for coughs  and colds, whether it be a child or an  adult that is afflicted. It always cures  and cures quickly.

Pay Three  Months Before Due.  On Friday last, shortly after going  to press with the last issue of the  Times, a telegraphic transfer of $20,000  was placed to the credit of the Athle-  stan Mining Co., Limited,and Messrs.  C. D. Hunter and G. H. Collins, Phoenix; W. T. Hunter, of this city, J.  Hunter, Rossland, and C. S. SJawson,  Spokane, as their interests appeared.  The payment was made by the Montreal & Boston Consolidated on account  of the purchase of the Athelstan and  Jack-Pot fraction and was the final  payment.  The Athlestan is a comparatively  high grade property situate to the  south-east of the Winnipeg mine,under  bond by the Granby Consolidated,  about three miles east of Phoenix.  Portions of the following claims intervene between the Winnipeg and the  Athlestan: Calumet, Hecla, Blue Nose  fraction, Butte and Glenora.  The Athlestan was operated by the  vendors for about two years previous  tothe sale last summer. Altogether  about 12,000 tons of ore was shipped  netting excellent returns. The C.P.R.  spur to lhe Winnipeg is the nearest  railway point, though the G. N. Phoenix spur is not far away At present  the property is no*- being operated.  The payment made was 'not due  until July 10th next and indicates the  intention of the- Montreal & Boston  Consolidated to pay outright, and at  once for^ all the purchases made last  summer.  7  The payment was celebrated here by  a quiet dinner party- at the Imperial  hotel on Friday evening last.

Another important act was the  School Act. This was very vigorously  opposed by the opposition and although  it was greatly modified and some of its  objectionable features removed in passing through the house it is still, Mr.  Brown thinks, * a piece of unwise and  pernicious legislation. It was passed  for the purpose of reliaving the provin-.  cial treasury of $80,000 or S90.000 a  year and probably it will have this  effect But it will also discriminate  against the poorer school districts. It  will reduce the salaries of teachers,  particularly in rural schools and consequently lower the standard of qualification. It imposes onerous conditions  on trustees such as providing the  provincial assessors with the names of  all persons who own anv property  either real or personal in their districts.  The government made the mistake of  attempting to imitate the school system in some of ti-e settled provinces of  the east where the conditions are alto  gether different.  The amendment to the Assessment  Act passed last session is another act  of importance. It was passed mainly  for the purpose of correcting the mistakes and anomalies in the act of last  year and most of its provisions are in  the right direction.  The attorney-general seems determined to leave his mark on BC. legislation and introduce a large numberof  acts into the house. Among these  were the County Court Act, Bills of  Sale Act, Fraudulent Preferences  Act  Owned by Local Parties.  The Tip Top, one of the claims in  Skylark camp and adjoining the Mavis  to the south, was sold last night to W.  S. Macey of Phoenix for the sum of  $15,000, part cash, balance within three  months. The deal was put through by  Gaunce & Wickwire, mining brokers  of this city. The late owners were J.  C. Haas, M. E., of Spokane, who has  beeu - in town for several days, Randolph Stuart and H, R. Elliott.  The Tip Top contains the Mavis  leads, which are being extensively developed by a syndibate of young men,  employees of the Granby Consolidated  who have taken a bond on the property  and have uncovered two very promising veins running right across the  claim about seventy-five feet apart.  The only assays taken give values in  gold only of ��30 per tou.  The sale of the Tip Top is very significant of the favor the high grade  claims are finding wilh Phoenix people.  Ever since the Skyl.-irk proved such a  bonanza, claims have been obtained  as fast as offered, and the prospects are  that the coming summer will see an  immense amount of development work  done ane a large tonnage of high grade  ore shipped sor treatment at the various Smelters.  and Ru  The goods are of the latest  designs and patterns, and:  the price is the price of the  O I C--the lowest.  ill ft  A__t_JAMITEJUCXU J��rops_  0OO0O000O00O00O0O0OO0004OO  H.

The waterworks bylaw passed on  Thursday afternoon hy 42 votes for  and none against. This is the first by-  luw that has passed unanimously since  the incorporation of the city of Greenwood.  Two shifts of men are working on  the Highland Queen engaged in running a tunnel to tap the ledge at a  depth of about 75 feet. The ore will be  struck in ten days time and from then  on active development will be started.  F. W. McEaine reports real estate  sales active; during the week past he  sold Dr. Schon's residence and several  lots in Midway. Buyers are much in  evidence for Midway property, the reports of possible smelter construction  is evidently having its influence.

Sc, the assayer  has published a most complete circular  containing amongst other items, the  price of metals (April 1905), lists of  non-metalliferous and metalliferous  minerals, country rocks their characteristics and minerals ancl their identification r Mr. Sutherland intimates  that he will willingly send a copy to  anyone wishing for same.  We should like to. suggest to the  chairman of the Streets' committee  .that it-would be a great convenience  lo attendants of the Methodist church  if the side walk up from Copper street  were cleared of about 500 packing  cases. They are not only very annoying to pedestrians but are a very poor  advertisement for strangers. In Victoria if any such infraction of streets  bylaw happened the delinquent would  be fined if he left the cases on the  street over night.  We have.received a very beautiful 48  page folder, published by the Great  Northern Railway Co., entitled "A  camera journey to the Lewis & Clark  Centennial Exposition," bound in a  handsomely engraved cover and exquisitely printed and illustrated. Each  page is printed on a buff tint and the  whole work reflects the<greatest credit  on the publishers and the printers, The  Pioneer Press, St. Paul. The size of  the booklet is very convenient, 5 inches  =by=-7T^and=copies-can=-be- obtained- by-  application to any of the railway company's principal offices.  Advices received here on Wednesday  stated that the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated have purchased the Morrison mine, situate about one mile from  the Mother Lode to the south and east7  It is understood that the shareholders  of the Morrison Mines, Ltd.', get one  share of Montreal  &  Boston stock for.  30 they  owned in   the old comin order to ship  ore   the new  owners will  have to  build a  spur   of  railway.  George Spendler was in town on Saturday last and told the Times representative about a group of claims he  and Gilbert Gunderson, mine host of  the Victoria, were interested in. The  group is in Pass creek camp, some  three miles from Eholt, aud one and a  half miles from Long Lake. The  group consists of four claims, Minnie,  Golden Horn, No. 5 fraction and Wonderful. Most of the-work so far done  has been on the Minnie, where there is  a shaft 65 feet deep and S9 feet of tunnelling. The ore body is very wide,  over 84 feet, and runs $8 on the surface  and as high as $187 Two feet of the  ore on the foot wall is very high grade  and altogether there is a splendid  showing. There is enough work done  to crown grant the claims, bnt the  partners do not seem to be very sure  of their plans for the coming summer  They will do some work, but how much  they do not yet know. ',  Since the item appearing in * last  week's issue was written concerning  the Republic group, a very fine vein of  ore has been uncovered and sampled  by W. T. Smith on the Hidden Treasure, the claim nearest the C. &. W. R.  The lead is clearly defined, with walls  of schist and diorite nnd is apparently-  continuous through the None Such and  Last Chance. Judging from the trend  of the formation the new vein is about  fifty feet to the north of the vein at  presefit being opened up on the None  Such, and it is Mr. Smith's intention  to crosscut from the None Such tunnel  to the north in order to prospect the  new discovery. As soon as possible a  shaft will be sunk on the Hidden Treasure, and when a depth of-fifty feet  has been attained a tunnel will be run  to the east to open out on the hill not  far above the railway track. The ore  so far exposed gives good values in  gold,copper and silver and the body is  at least six feet wide. r  Geo. R. Naden,mayor of Greenwood,  and F. Keffer. the general manager of  the B. C. Copper Co.'s affairs in "that  district, were Chesaw; visitors Monday  and Tuesday. These gentlemen were  here for the purpose of looking over  the Grant and on Tuesday took- a trip  up on Copper Mountain and put that  fine property through a most thorough  examination. It stood0 the test fine  and has many more .compliments from  experienced mining men added to its  already long and glowing record. Mr.  Naden is a man of wide mining experience and Mr. Keffer, being for years  at the head of the famous Mother Lo.'.e  mine and the B. C. Copper compat-y'.s  smelter at Greenwood, places them in  a position to know a good property  when thev see it, and the high compliments which they paid the Grant on  their return were indeed encouraging.  The Grant ore is considered by the B.  C. company a fine .fluxing product to  be used at the smelter with the ore  from their mines in the Boundary district. The gentlemen speak in the  highest terms of our camp. On-'their  return trip they took about 50 pounds  of Grant ore for a test. At present the  outcome of their visit here can not be  foretold but we look for good results.  Should this company���or any other  company���take the Grant and work it  the effect on this camp would be marvelous.���Myers' Creek News.  The C.P.R. Company are deliberately allowing southern British Columbia  to be filched from them. We say it  advisedly, and.y everyone but those  ~m osTdireclljTi lit e?estW"af e==aware"-of  thirteen hours less by way of Spokane  and Seattle than via Robson and Revelstoke. When the new service is put on  between East Kootenay and Spokane  through Jennings, the time from Fernie to Victoria will be twenty-four  hours less than by way of Nelson and  C.P.R. To take another illustration  by the new route it will be possible to  leave Fernie, go to Spokane and return bv G.N.R. in 24 hours; it takes at  least 72 hours by way of Nelson. No  doubt the Corbin road will improve  this, but the C.P.R. do not lead-they  follow. It i.s the same tale in the Similkameen��� opportunities let slip, a  country wearied with waiting, and an  alien company building iu first. What  is the matter?
