James Donnahue and Richard Armstrong- of Chicago visited Greenwood  last week. Mr. Donnahue ib one of the  owners of the Helen and came west for  the purpose of seeing- the property iu  which he is interested. Mr. Armstrong is well known in the Bouudaiy  country, having- formerly been president of the* Grand Forks Townsite  company, now the British American  Trust company'. ' The' two gentlemen  while here visited the leading- mines  of the district and also Phoenix camp,  and left for the Portland' fair on Monday morning. Mr. Armstrong- is returning- to Greenwood for a lengthier  stay some time during the week.  M_. Donnahue is one of' Chicago's  leading real estate aad financial  agents. He loans immense sums af  money on real estate security and is a  wealthy and highly resoected citizen  of Chicago. While in B. C. both gentlemen visited the LaFrance mine in  East Kootenay, situate on the east  side of Kootenay lake. > A visit to this  mine entails a climb of 6,000 feet from  the lake. It is a silver-lead proposition, in which Alexander Miller is  heavily interested.

Riley Bennett,' a chemist5" of  Brown's Town, Jamaica, West' India  Islands, writes: " I cannot speak too  highly of> Chamberlain's' Cough  Remedy. It-has proved itself to be the  best ' remedy for whoopittg cough,  which is prevalent on this end of the  globe1. It has never failed to relieve  in any case where I have recommended  it, andj grateful mothers*, after using  it', are daily thanking me for advising  them." This remedy is for sale by all  druggists."  Dr. Spankie reports' that in the new  shaft on the Prince Henry, which is  now' down 50 feet a very fine vein six  inches wide and carrying values of  over $100 per ton has been struck. A  syndicate of local capitalists has been  formed, called the Prince Henry-Aber-  craig -Development syndicate, on the  assessment plan, for the' purpose of  purchasing and developing the two  claims under bond, the Prince Henry  and, the Abercraig. The outlook is  most encouraging.  thought at that time that something  would soon be doing at the Jewel property. Should this deal go through it  will mean a great deal to Greenwood.  The Le Roi No. 2 is an English company, weil financed and managed, and  and is one of the very few companies  doing business in Rossland camp  which has paid profits. Until quite  recently the ore from the Josie has  been treated at the B. C. Copper company's smelter here.  During the first three months of this  year the management of the EPU  shipped ore which netted $7,500. Since  the beginning of April practically no  shipping has been done, but the whole  of the large staff employed has been  engaged in development work on the  160-foot level. Drifts have been run  north and south on the vein for about  eighty feet in each direction and the  property never looked better than  today. Considerable improvements  are contemplated in the tramway,  which will reduce the cost of handling  the ore. The mine is equipped with a  boiler aud a Jenckes hoist, and1 early  this year electric' light was installed  both on the surface and1; below/ Two  electric blowers have also'been added,  one for the blacksmith shop and the  olher for ventilating the mine. It is  expected that,* as* soon as tbe tram-'  way improvements have been completed active - shipping will, be resumed.  ITEMS FROM EHOLT.  The Phoenix syndicate which has  the Mavis under bond has sunk a shaft  25 ^feet deap on the .main lead,5 which,  judging from the character of the ore,  is the Bay lead. At the' bottom "of the  shaft 14 to 18' inches of rich free-gold  ore is exposed^ The bonding syndicate now' purpose- pushing the work  with all dispatch and developing the  property as rapidly as possible.

Insist or having  "ELKHORN"  MADE BY THE  Though there is every evidence of  the' proximity of the veins in both the  Freemout and the Strathmore up to  the time of going to press, neither vein  has been reached. On the Fremont  two men ran a 25-foot open" cut and a  60-foot tunnel through dirt, timbered  and complete, in 27 days.  The latest ore struck in the Helen  mine is the finest so far found in this  most promising ^property. The vein  is solidly mineralized and the ore as-  _ays_wel!-above-the-'profltable_mark.  Two carloads are now ready for shipment.  D. M. Curry, one of the original  bonders of the Duncan mine on Wallace mountain. West Fork district, arrived in Greenwood Tuesday evening  last, suffering from a badly sprained  side. He is at present under a p ysi-  cian's care and progressing favorably.  It is the intention of some of those  interested with Messrs. Curiie and  Henderson in the bond to go up the  West Fork tomorrow and return on  Monday or Tuesday next.  On the Goldfinch, Wm. Madden, who  is superintending the development  work on behalf of his uncle, Mark F.  Madden of Chicago, has been steadily  prospecting the main lead and has now  started a tunnel about half way up between the creek and the old (workings.  Good values have been obtained from  the surface at this spot.  E. Levy, manager of the Le Roi No.  2, limited, Kossland, came to Greenwood Wednesday. As his company  admit having an option on the Jewel  mine at Long lake, and as Mr. Wright,  the cashier of the' Jewel company, is  also in Greenwood from London, Eng.,  it seems fairly safe to surmise that  Josie people have decided to purchase  the property. It is a well known fact  that they have had the mine un-  waterec. and thoroughly sampled and  that the pumps have been kept going  to keep the mine clear, of water unti  such time as Mr. Levy's company decided whether to purchase or not.  About.two months ago an option \yas  taken on a half interest on the Denero  Grande As the papers for this deal  were  drawn   up   at Rossland   it was  the school in  the afternoon to see the  closing exercises. - ' . ���  " On Monday evening the children's  concert was held in, the opera house,  followed by a dance. The concert was  a' success, as the children all performed their parts ������ exceptionally well.

Howard Guest left for the coast on  Wednesday to try his'fortunes'and see  what the gods send him there.  BOUNDARY FALLS SCHOOL.  Last Friday a very pleasant and  profitable event took place in the closing exercises of of the Bojndary Falls  public school, which reflected great  credit on the teacher, Mr. Pope; the  trustees, all of whom were present;  the parents, and the children in the  commitnitj*. After the examinations  were over a good programme of mpsic  and recitations, under the supervision  of Mrs. Phillips as instructor and Miss  McCurdy as organist, was rendered by  the scholars who acquitted themselves  admirably.  The programme was concluded by  serving all present with delicious icecream, cake and lemonade, furnished  by lhe ladies.  Mr. Pope has gone to the coast for  his holidays.  A Safe Coii-yh Remedy for Children  In buying a cough medicine for children never be afraid to buy Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. There is no  danger from it and relief is always  sure to follow. It is especially valuable for colds, croup and whooping  cough.    For sale by all druggists.  In the upper cretaceous deposits at  White Cliffs, New South Wales, two  skeletons of plesiosaurian y reptiles  have been found, both of which were  completely opalized, like the tree  trunks round in Arizona and other  western localities. In the first example of these jeweled motisters'tnat  was unearthed the color was very rich  and striking; the second was less  brilliant of hue, and precious opal occurred only here and there in the  specimen, especially in the transverse-  processes of the neck. The plesiosaurs  are an extinct race of very long-  necked creatures which swam in  ancient seas,  '   ._  0 /���'.  7     777  M--n-t-lU_P-"1Hrr r*+ff"*e*,"a*���il*'aM���Tja"m-M-tjm"���*-" ���*-  i. ��� imwim iw nitti"  -___^5_  ,/    ���  BOUNDARY/*OREEK   TIMES  PROFESSIONAL CARDg.  /.

At last the V., V. & E. bill  has passed the most important  stage in its progress. Judging  from the opposition the bill received in committee it is doubtful  if it can be carried through both  houses. The Western members  are putting up a strong fight,  and as it is their constituents who  are alone interested in its passage, this may have weight with  members and senators who are  not interested in either road. It  is not probable that the bill will  become a party measure, for  where large railway corporations j  are interested party lines 'are  easily obliterated. At least this  has been the rule heretofore, but  ihe present'parliament and senate  may be the exception. The passage of the bill means so much  to the Boundary and the territory  west of here that party bias has  become a secondary consideration. The railroad is needed in  the development' of the cbuutrv..  Its construction means increased  business and larger raining operations���more money in circulation.

In the southeast Missouri lead district* a concentrating plant capable of  handling ten tons an hour costs, from'  $25,000 to $35,000. ,\  The placer mines of British Columbia produced last year $1,115,300 in  gold, an increase of about 5 per cent  over the preceding year.  There are certain mining processes  to which electricity can be applied directly, such as hoisting, tramming and  pumping; but breaking ore by electricity is still an experiment.  In New Zealand last year the average weekly earnings of some. 100 gold  dredges was about S450, a satisfactory  figure, when one considers the small  initial capital required and the low  working cost.  The consensus of opinion among geologists _is_that __he_ Yukon _ placers'are  concentrated from ' older, possibly  Paleozoic, veins, while a smaller part  is derived from veins of the same age  as those of/ the principal California  belt.  'It costs about 7J_ cents for each 1,000  gallons of water- raised 1,000 feet by  the more modern large station pumps  in the Lcadville district, Colorada.  Some time ago it was shown that for  every tou of ore mined about thirty  tons of water were pumped from an  average depth of 800 feet.  1  k  No. L. 148.

B  X- * I  I  The following- write-up of the��We.t  Fork country is by Ge$>. E. Winkler,  formerly of Greenwood, and apeared  in the June number of the Mining-  Record:  Since the palmy days of the Sloean,  ���when rich veins of silver ores made  ��� many of'their owners wealthy without  the aid or interventiou of the capitalist,  there has probably been no catnp.dis-  covered in British Columbia offering-  inducements for profitable mining-to  men of moderate means or companies  with limited capital, comparable to  those presented by several camps on  the West Fork of Kettle river.  Unfortunately, five or six years ago,  at the time this part of the Boundary  district was attracting most attention,  it was seriously hampered by lack of  roads, so that to visit it a journey of  more than fifty miles by road and  trail from Midway,'the western terminus of the Columbia and Western railway, or thirty miles by trail from Pentieton, on Okanagan lakL, was necessary. It can re'ad.ly be imagined, under such'circumstances, with what dif-  ' Acuities the shipping of ore and the  '- bringing in of 'necessary supplies and  machinery'were attended.  * An agitation for the construction of  a wagon road, to give 'access from the  .district tothe Boundary .smellers, was  started in 1900 and resulted in the securing of a government"appropriation  of $8,000 for the purpose, this sum having been tstimated as sufficient for the  ' work. Owing partially to bad management, i however this amount was  found  to   be   totally' inadequate,   for  "most of the approptiation was spent in  the   construction   of    two    or ' three  ���bridges.   "A long, disheartening strug-  " gle for further aid resulted finally in  the provision of sufficient money for  the   completion,, about a year and a  - half ago of the road, at a total cost of  about $31,000 , ,     . -  The first known discovery of mineral  in the West Fork district 'was made by  two prospectors from Kelowna, named  Morgan and   White,  who  in'the late  . eighties or early --nineties found and  located   what   is   now 4he Arlington  '   cla'm.    After having ,done  three as-  - sessments they allowed it to lapse and  it was relocated in 1895 by P. Helstab  and Jas. Lynch, who later sold it to A.  E.'Bielenberg for $2,000. -The Ariin-g-  *,ton vein is between 3 and 3j_ feet  ' wide, of white quartz, and carries iron  -and copper pyrites with a little galena.  About thirty tons of ..ore-have been  taken' out in prospecting the vein,  which is said to assay well in gold,  cbpper-and silver.  The second location in the district  was the Highland Chief, made in 1895  by three trappers, Farrell, Jordan and  Dore, on a quartz vein 12 to 15 feet  -wide, averaging t $11 in gold. This  property is situated on the east side of  Beaver creeK, a few miles from where  it flows into the West Fork of Kettle  river.    A'   crosscut   tunnel   has   been  _���  -   driven 130 feet to cut the vein at depth  " but has not yet reached the ore.  "The   first   location    attracted   very   little attention. . The real awakening  of the district may be said to date from  the-discovery by Jas. C. Dale, in 1896,  of the Carmi, on 'the west side of the  river, about six miles north of the  "mouth of Beaver creek. The Carmi  lead is of white quartz, with an average width of about four feet and is  strongly mineralized with iron pyrites,  . the other minerals visible in small  quantities being galena* blende and  copper pyrites. The highest assay  was obtained from a sample of oxy-  dized surface ere which ran S350.50 in  gold and, 66 ounces in silver. The  " , massive iron pyrites as a rule gives  assay values of from $45 to S6S a ton.  A shipm .nt of 885 tons of ore to the  Greeenwood smeiter during the winter  of 1900-1 gave gross returns of about  $23,000, or $26 per ton.. The cost of  shipping and treating the ore, which  had to be hauled about fifty miles to  the railway at Midway, is roughly  estimated at $16 per ton.  Adjoining the Carmi on the west is  the Butcher .Boy; own_d by Stanhope  ancl Kerr, oh which a continuation of  the Carmi lead is found.

Dale, an 80-foot tunnel has been  driven in an'endeavor to trace a small  %��� vein carrying iron, galena and chlorides of silver and assaying as high as  300 ounces in silver to the ton.  Southwest of  the Carmi, at the head  .      of Cranberry  creek,  in  a contact be  tween schist and granite, the Aberdeen claim has been located on a small  veiu which carries iron, galena, zinc  and bromide of silver, assays- running  $60 to $600 in silver,  While in course of time and with  further development, some of the less  known camps on the West Fork may  come into prominent notice/it must be  generally admitted that at present  Wallace mountain is the banner camp  of the district, both in regard to the  number and grade of gold and silver  bearing leads. The mountain is near  the junction of Beaver creek with the  West Fork, on the cast side of the  river, and until recently was reached  by a three-mile trail from Beaverdell.  Within the last few weeks the owners  of the Sally mine have built a wagon  road from their property to the main  road at Beaverdell. Like many others  of the .high-grade miues showing up  so well in the Boundary district, the  Sally belongs to a local company. This  one is known as the "Vancouver and  Bouddary Creek Mining and Development company, and was organized  some years ago by Robert Wood. The  development of the Sally to its present  satisfactory condition is generally  creditedjro Clement Vacher, the superintendent, who. owing to the disturbances that have occurred since* the  forming of -the veins, has had much  trouble in following the ore. The  faults vary from a foot or two to 40 and  50 feet, but as depth is attained they  become less frequent. ' If the ore  faulted but the'oneway the, problem of  tracing it would be simplified, but with  slips both to north and south it can be  understood  that the  initial stages of  * r | y  development-have been attended with  great difficulties. ' By studying the  ground carefully, however, and noting  the grooves along the slip and the  "drag" left by-the ore when moving,  Mr.-Vacher seems able to tel1 almost  the exact location of-the vein- and to  follow it ' with vthe vslightest_ possible  loss of time and'labor.  The Sally guoup was located in 1897  by Feltoe and Stewart, who sold to the  present owners. No "-less than nine or  ten' distinct leads are found 'on the  group, varying,in- width from 10 or 12  inches .to 4 and 5' feet,  and  the Black Diamond is the Standard  Fraction.    The lead on-this claim has  r  been prospected with a 94-foot tunnel  and a number of open cuts.  On the Rambler,' adjoining on the  West, and belonging to Rambo, Nelson and Finucane, a shaft has been  sunk 85 feet, from which a drift has  been -run 106 feet to'the south to catch  the vein where it had faulted.     '  On the Bounty, owned by the Stratford Mining company, a 90-foot shaft  has been sunk and 100 feet of tunneling done.  Adjoining the Sally group is the  Duncan, owned by Robert Wood and  others, and now under bond.  MINERAL ACT.  *  Certificate of Improvements.  NOTICE.

According to information received by  Manager Keary preparations are now  going on in various parts of the Australia for a big exhibit of that country's resources to be made at the Dominion fair which opens in Westminster on September 27, D. H. Ross,  who is Canadian commercial agent for  Victoria, Tasmania and South and  Western Australia, took the matter up  some time ago with the various chambers of commerce and has*-- worked the  proposition into an undertaking which  has been entered into with general enthusiasm. The people of Australia  realise, Mr. Ross says, that the holding of the Dominion fair in New Westminster opens to them a great opportunity to develop trade 'with British  Columbia and they will improve it by  making an .elaborate display of such  of their products as are marketable in,  this' part of the empire. <  The production of platinum last year  in British. Columbia amounted to 35  ounces, valued at $12 an ounce. This  was recovered from the sluice boxes in  washing for placer gold. There has  been no platinum iound "in place"' sin  British Columbia, although its occurrence is -widespread in the gravel of  the ��� placer gold deposits throughout  the province. ,  Sprained Ankle.

Some beautiful specimens' of native  silver are found,and handsome samples  of galena are often met with. ��� Specimens of the ore taken out show tetra.  hedrite, argentite, ruby and brittle  silver, black sulphides of silver and  silver chlorides. As the veins run up  and down hill they' have been developed mainly 'by tunnels: No. 1 vein  has 382 feet of work ,doue on it. A  parallel vein as short dislanfce to the  south, known** as No. 2, shows larger  and richer on the surface than No. 1,  and assays from1400 to 940 ounces in  silver at various places along the outcrop. When developed this vein should  make the Sally rank with the richest  silver miues discovered in British Columbia. The greatest" depth reached  has been on the No. 1 vein, the dis-  tance between the surface and the floor  of the tunnel, which has been driven  234 feet, being 148 feet. The vein  shows a steady improvement both in  size and quality, a- large increase in  the native silver being nojed in the  ore now being mined as compared with  that taken from near the surface.  The Sally is at -an elevation of 4,350  feet above sea level and is nearly 2,000  feet above the valley of the West Fork.  Substantial log bunk houses, a blacksmith shop, office, and ore sheds have  been constructed near the entrance to  the workings on No. 1 vein.  Northeast of the Sally is the Bell,  owned by Ralph Smailes et al. The  Bell has the distinction of being the  first claini located on Wallace mountain. Three veins of quartz, showing  iron pyrites, blende and galena, have  been prospected by two. tunnels, a 70-  foot shaft and several open cuts.  East of the Bell are the Washington  and Idaho claims, belouging to a stock,  company. These were located on two  parallel leads occurring in contact  with an eruptive dyke, the strike of  which is north and south. Several  shafts have been sunk, and considerable open-cutting done on these properties. '7  On the Black Diamond, belonging to  E. P. Kennedy and Jos.-Devlin, a 49-  foot shaft has been sunk, fallowing  the vein for 23 feet. Four leads have  been exposed and some good assays  obtained.

The Scottish engineer who came out to Chicago to  give the corporation of that city advice on the organization of its street  railways as a municipal undertaking  brought with him a profound conviction that the Glasgow way of doing  these things was the best way possible.  He -.probably still thinks it is���for  Glasgow, but he is absolutely convinced that it is not for Chicago and  still less for Philadelphia. With north  country bluntness, he gives his reasons very directly:  "To put street railroads, gas works,  telephone companies, etc., under municipal ownership," he says, "would  be to create a political machine in  every large city that would be simply  impregnable. These political machines are already strong enough,  with their control of policemen, firemen and other office holders. If in addition -to this they control the thousands of men employed in the great  public utility corporations, the political machines would have a power that  could not be overthrown. I came to  this country a believer in public ownership. What I have seen here, and I  have studied the situation carefull}--,  makes me realize that  private  owner*  , ship under proper conditions is far  better- for the citizens of American  cities." ��� " '  Mr. Dalrymple will find that a great  many' people in the United States  agree with him. Indeed we are not  sure that he has not, without possibly  in the least intending it, said a ye ry  popular thing. Nevertheless, the  statements quoted above form a a in-  indictment of the people of the United  States, which if recognized as true,  should be received by theni with shame  'and sorrow. - They constitute'a charge  that the citizens, of the republic have  not yet learned to govern themselves,  that, in point of fact, they have failed  under tests which are but the alphabet  of municipal ownership to the Glaswegians and to the1 inhabitants of  many another old-world city.  Mr. Dalrymple must have, felt some  diffidence in telling his hosts that they  had been weighed in the balance and  found wanting. He has not, however, plumbed the depths of American  complacency if he'imagines that what  he has said will give the least offence.  The United States are still expiating a  fault pointed out' by one of the most  distinguished of French scholars in the  last century by their "intellectual mediocrity and their superlicial spirit,"  and it is to be feared that the principal use which the criticism of their  visitor will serve will be that of giving  the newspaper paragraphia! a new  subject qii which to exercise his wit.  That this peoplevwill heed,that they  will understand or attempt to understand the deep  things  which  concern  , their peace_and_,w_iich are to be found  in the message of* the Scotchman is  not in the least likely.���Vancouver  World.

S. soldiers who' served in Cuba  during the Spanish war know what this  disease is, and that ordinary remedies  have little more effect than so much  water. Cuban diarrhoea is almost as  severe and dangerous as a mild attack of cholera. There is one remedyi  however, that can always be depended  upon, as will be seen from rhe following certificate from Mrs.^Minnie Jacob-  of Houstan, Texas: " I hereby certify  that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea remedy cured my husband  of a severe attack of Cuban diarrhoea,  which he brought home from Cuba.  We had several doctors,but they did  him no good. One'bottle of this remedy  cured him, as vour neighbors will testify. I thank God for so valuable a  medicine." ' For sale by all druggists.  WE SUBMIT IT.  May we respectfully submit to our  many friends'- in the Boundary the desirability of' their -representing in the  proper direction that it is not quantity  of news matter- sent out for publication that _s likely to benefit their district so much as reliability. In our  humble ^pinion the wide dissemination of allegations made by Brown,  Jones or Robinson, estimable men  though they may-be, ^regarding such  subjects, for instance, as the loss of  copper in slags made by local smelters,  'is not in' the best interest of local in  dustries. It will be remembered that  such allegations, made against the  manager oi the Montreal and Boston  CoVj operating' the" Boundary Falls  smelter, by one utterly incompetent'to  give a qualified, opinion^ on thej subject, were last month published far  and wide. That they were promptly  denied does not, in our opinion ,"make  their publication less reprehensible.  They can do no go.od; they may, and  possibly do, have an' opposite effect.  The enthusiasm of the correspondent,  who a few months" since "discovered''  the Boundary and its enormous mineral resources is commendable. His  occasional blunders are comparatively  harmless! except in such a case as that  under notice. Discrimination may well  be practised, else will usefulness be  much impaired by the eventual recognition by the public that grievances  of, individuals,-real or imaginary, are  sometimes unwisely permitted to take  the place of facts. The outside stockholder usually has but few sources of  information; the exercise, of much  care should', we think, therefore be regarded as_an imperative duty by those  who supply practically all the district  news- ordinarily available to him.���  Mining Record, Victoria.

V  In California the placers are generally derived from quartz veins of Ju-  rassic age, and the same is probably  true of most placers in Idaho and Oregon. In Montana, and especially in  Colorado, a part- of. the placers are  probably derived from veins of early  Tertiary age, but at any rate these  contribute a very _mall part of the  total production.  The greater, part of the gold obtained from lode mining, in British Columbia is found iu connection with  other metals, and only separated or  collected by smelting, probably not 5  per cent, o'f the product being obtained from stamp mills. The lode  gold product for 1904 was S4,589,__8,  and was ��233,008 less than in 1903.  A gold mine in Bohemia���the Roud-  ny - has been woi ked for five or six  centuries, and lately has been remodeled and started again. Singularly it  is the flrst plant in Austria to employ  the cyanide process. The gold content of the ore varies between 3 and 30  gm. per ton. Electric power is used  to operate the Blake crushers. In the  amalgamation process about 50 to 60 j  per cent, of gold is recovered. Amal-1  gam catchers are provided at the foot  of each of the six tables. The Ferraris tables yield concentrates with a  gold content up to about 27 per cent.,  tailings with about 13 per cent., and  slimes with about 6 per cent, of gold.  and fire* works consisting of  Fife Crackers,  Sky-Rockets,  Roman Candles,  All sizes. v Serpents, Hand-.
