H  I   RENDELL & CO. 1  ^utuaiauiiiiUiiUHtiiiiU'iiiiiimtiiiiuiaiaiiuaiaiiiiUiiWR  It is now almost a certainty that  both the C P. R. and the Great Northern will commence extend their lines  toward the Similkameen country this  season. It is now a question of which  of the two great systems can get there  first and capture the trade of that district.  Contractors are taking supplies west  for construclion purposes. Monday  last a load of tools was taken from  tlie Greenwood station to a point between here and Midway, and it is  thought actual construction will be  commenced in a few days. The Great  Northern appears to be the most active  at present, having surveyors and outfits all along the proposed line but the  C.P.Ri' will doubtless get a move on  from the western end of the line, and  may probably be able to keep pace  with its apparently more energetic  rival.  It is believed that the first construction work done by the G. N. will be  through Greenwood in order to compete for the freight at this point.  The following in  reference   to the  railway  situation   is   taken   from the  VancouverWorM and if true will mean  much to the prosperity of the Boundary j  and the country west of here: j  According to advices from Prin.eton j  two great railway companies, the j  Great Northern and the C.P.R., are  engaged iu high strategy ia the Simi1-  kauieen and Lower Okanagan. There  is reason to believe that the Great  Northern will resume construction this  spring in the Boundary as well asw^st  Government Ajrent McMynnWill Visit  His: Old Home-  Go ver ment ' Agent McMynn, Mrs.  McMyn'and their daughter Alice will  leave Monday on a visit to the Old  Country. They will stop over for a  few days in Toronto'and New York,  and then go to Scotland where some  time will be spent visiting relatives  and friends of Mr. McMynn. They  will also visit Mrs. McMy nn's home  in Ireland- Mr. McMy nn's leave ''of  absence is for four months.  Mr. McMynn came to the province  in 1884, returning to the Old Country  in 1886. In 1887 he returned to B. G.  and settled ri ear Rock Creek In 1892  he was appointed provincial constable  and mining recorder for the "Kettle  river mining division, with headquarters at Rock Creek. In 1895 the  office was moved to Midway; and Mr.  M-Mym-^_-ii-^tedT-5"cH^  registrar of the county court and clerk  of the peace. In 1900 the office was  moved to Gre��nwood, and he received  promotion to gold commissioner and  registrar of the supreme court; in 1901  he was appointed government agent,  and in 1902 stipendiary, magistrate,  with power to hold small debts court.  This is Mr. McMynn's first vacation  since taking office thirteen years ago.  Like all men who put duty first in  an official position, he has madeene-  mies, but to counterbalance this he has  made a host of warrii friends in the  district who wish him an enjoyable  vacation.  Although the managers of the high-  grade properties-in the neighborhood  of Greenwood are not saying much,  development is going on steadily and  regular shipments are being made.  Owing to the wearing out of the boiler  on the Providence, and the decision to  install a complet new plant, very little  work has been done for the past'two  weeks, and it will be another moi*th  before development is resumed; and  regular shipments commenced. That  there are large reserves of ore in the  mine is proved by the recent strike  in the crosscut at the 400-foot level.  During this month the Last Chance  shipped one car of ore,, and development is being systematically carried  out. In another month this property  is expected to become, one of. the  heaviest shippers in the high-grade  group. The Skylark has 125 tons to  its credit for the month, and it is said  that this, or even greater tonnage,  will be continued each month. It is  expected that the Coro-Canadian will  join th6 rank's-of regular shippers next  month. Development is well forward,  and the lead is one of. the richest in  the district, so, in another month, the  property will doubtless become self-  supporting, and before long a dividend  payer. The Elkhorn shipped two cars  this month This will be largely increased as development progresses.  The stock is selling well and in another month the working force will  have been largely increased- The E.  P. U. also shipped 2 cars this month.  This will be -increased to 8 cars per  month, placing the property among  the dividend payers. The-boiler and  machinery has been installed on the  Gold Bug, and work will immediately  be started on the300-foot tunnel, using,  steam drills. Development is'being  "pushed-.teadil^lTtW^  was commenced this week on the Silver Cloud Fraction, and work is being  done on the Silver Cloud.  Throughout the high-grade properties development is progressing favorably and extra men are being put to  work as fast as they can be placed to  advantage.  First-class Timothy  seed, 9c. per lb.

P., had the misfortune to  lose by fire his boiler house and a fine  new two-story frame feed house, just  built. Flames were noticed about 4 p.  m. bursting out of the roof. The  alarm was given and the men all  gathered. A bucket brigade was  formed and the fire got under control  by dark. The engineer. Wm. Stephens,  fell through the first story floor, which  was on fire, and shortly afterwards  Mr. Sidley fell through the roof,  neither, however, being seriously injured. The blacksmith, Charles Rev,  had his clothes burned. There was no  insurance. The cause of the fire is  unknown, as the engineer is positive  there was no tire in the  boiler at 12 m.  CARD OF THANKS.  I wish to tender my grateful thanks  to those many friends who showed so  much kindness and sympathy to, my  late husband during his illness, and to  myself during the trying days of iny  affliction.

A full attendance is requested.  The annual report will be read, the  roll revised and officers elected for the  ensuing year.

Chas Drake, a mail carrier at Chap-  inville, Conn., says: "Chamberlain's  Pain Balm is the champion of all liniments. The past year. I was troubled  a great deal with ri. eumatism in my  shoulder. After trying several cures  the storekeeper here recommended this  remedy and it completely cured nie."  There is no use of anyone suffering  from that painful ailment when this  liniment can be obtained for a small  sum. One application gives prompt  relief and its continued use for a short  time will produce a permanent cure.  For sale by all druggists. BOUNDARY  OREEK   TIMES.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.   H.

Gold and platinum are found native,  or intimately mixed in essentially the  pure state, with some metallic minerals. Telurium is the only acidic element that occurs combined with gold  in nature.' ,  Native coke is considerable of a  rarity, though it is occasionally found.  The old EdgehilJ".mines near Richmond, Va., turned out a considerable  quantity of native coke. Gehth attributes the origin of native coke* to  fhe action of trap eruptions on bituminous coal.

Th? legislature has been in  session over a month, and nothing vet  done in the way of furnishing better  railway facilities for, the mining,districts between the Boundary and the  coast.  After all the school question is not  of so much moment to the public as  many of the politicians would have us  believe. In fact, it i.s doubtful whether  educati.n is a benefit or an injury to  a country.

While the wearing of ;wigs and  gowns.may be of great importance to  the lawyers- in the house, there are  questions of vastly greater importance  to the people that, should receive the  consideration of 'members'of the legislature. The people are more deeply  interested in amendments .to the mining laws, railway legislation, simplifying the statutes, lowering the assessment, and making it less expensive  for pre-emptors of homesteads.

THE WASTE DUMP.  (From Mining-Reporter.)  Timberline in Colorado is 'between  11,000 and 12,000 feet above sea level,  depending on the exposure of the  mountain side. As a general rule, on  the north side of a mountain, timber-  line will be encountered at about 11,000  feet. On the south side of a mountain  timberline creeps a little higher aiid is  a trifle less than 12,000 feet. At least  this has been our experience in most  cases when testing by the aneroid.  The age of an ore deposit bears little  relationship to the age of the rock in  which it is found. ��� Thus a deposit  found in an archaian rock does not  mean that the deposit itself is of arch-  <ean age. The only rule in this connection is that the ore deposit is probably of later age than the rock in  which it ia found, although this rule is  subject, of course, to modifications. A  deposit in arch;eati rock may be of ter-  tiairy age. In Leadville the ore deposits are found in deposits ranging  from the Cambrian to the upper car  boniferdhs. The deposit* themselves  are probably of tertiary age.  There are a number of gold ores  which will not show, fiee gold by panning. It is not altogether dependent  upon' the size of the gold particles; but  rather on the character of the crush ed  material. For example, some linionite  ores may contain comparatively coarse  gold, and yet panning will not disclose  such gold, owing to the fact that the  hydrated oxide of iron forms a viscous  mass with the water, raising the specific gravity of the latter, and preventing  the gold particles from falling to the  bottom of the pan. A slight calcination will iu such cases, make it possible  for the gold to be seen by panning.  The main arguments in favor of having the rock breaking done outside and  away from a stamp mill are that it  mixes, the fines and course material,  and that by transportation in cars  wear and tear is reduced to a minimum, and cars can be loaded and  emptied quicker. In a stamp mill  where there is a grizzly, the fines tend  to accumulate in certain parts of the  bin, thus there is irregular feeding,  with consequent irregular work in the  mortar. The fines may go through by  themselves at one time, and at another  the battery will be fed with large  pieces of ore. This tendency is overcome, to a certain extent, by the handling of material between two bins; the  carmen can distribute the fines more  equally over the mill bin. There is a  tendency on the pari of some mill men  to use larger rock breakers and do  without grizzlys for the same reasons  Just how far uniformity  in keeping  mine accounts   is desirable, is a question very much open to argument.   We  cannot believe that a  system   of bookkeeping   which    would   be  found   excellent,   we   will  say,   in   the   copper  mines of Montana, would   work at all  well in the mines of  Mexico,  nor can  we believe that the  details ol   the system used in the Mesabi range, for example,   would  be at all adapted to the  Kalgoorlie mines of  Western  Australia.   These  are   extremes, it  must be  admitted, but between these extremes  ther^e'are^ta^ations^W  going tc properly meet them, must require   gradations   or  modifications in  the method  of keeping books.     The  idea of uniformity  in  bookkeeping is  to allow comparisons to be instituted  between   the   operations   of   different  mines.   Thin,  would   be a  very desirable thing, if  it  were possible,  or if  any good could come out of it, but we  question very seriously   whether comparisons and deductions might not be  drawn,   without   full    knowledge   of  other details  than   than   those given  by the books, that would be positively  harmful.    In  saying this, of course, it  must be understood we are. strongly in  in   favor   of   every   mine   keeping a  proper system  of accounts, but these  accounts should be kept in such a manner as   to   show  clearly and exactly  what the mine is  doing,  both  from a  commercial   viewpoint   and from   the  poiut   of   view  of good  engineering.  That  certain   fundamental  principles'  should   rule in   every   case   must   be  obvious, and  this, in our judgment, is  the only  uniformity   possible.    There  is an old saying that "every  tub must  stand on its own bottom."    Applied to  business this  means that  every business must be  conducted  according to  the principles found necessary in eaeh  particular case.    To take a set of books  found desirable in one case aud apply  it  without  knowledge  of all circumstances to another  business,  possibly  very dissimilar, is bookish and, in our  judgment, absurd.

H. Rambo left Thursday morn-  iug for Beaverdell, on the West Fork  of Kettle river, to resume work on the  Rambler. John Meyer's accompanied  him. Development work will be carried on continuously and regular shipments made from the mine.  J. W. Hugh Wood returned this week  from Beaverdell, bringing with him  some splendid samples' of silver ore  from the Sally, rnnning $500 to the  ton. This ore was taken from a depth  of 135 feet and tHc.lead .is "between 30  and 40 inches wide.  The Great Northern is now taking  out about one thousand tons of ore per  day to the Granby ismelter. When the  two new furnaces are installed it is  expected that the C. P. R. and the  Great Northern Will each handle about  1,500 tons of ore a day.  While all arrangements have* hot  yet been made for the- bringing of  power from Bonnington Falls lo the  Boundary, it is understood that the  matter is practically in shape, and  that there will be no more shortage in  power at  the mines and "smelters in  this district.  The annual assessment work has  just been completed on the Morning  Star, situated above the B.'C. Copper  company's smelter. Adrift has been  run about 35 feet from the end of a 30-  foot tunnel run last year. The ledge  is abou. four feet wide, with an 18��  inch paystreak. Nearly half a car of  first-class ore is on the dump.���Anaconda News. ;... ,-��� .-...-���  Development will be commenced on  the Silver Reef, Wallace creek, next  month. Previous work consisted of a  29-foot shaft. This will be driven to  a depth of 50 feet and a crosscut run to  determine the width of the lead. The  values are in silver, zinc and gold.  Assays iri gold run from $6 to $19. The  claini is owned by W. George, T. Edwards and W. J. Nelson.      ..'   ,  On the Little Home claim, owned by  J. J. McDonald and adjoining, the  Dynamo on the north, while plowing  this spring uncovered a lead of chalcopyrite. Information received is to the  effect that the ore looked as rich as the  best samples from the Big Coppei  shown in the early days. On the Mayflower, ��the adjoining claim on the  west and- owned by P. Hickey and O.  Lofstad, this ore body is proved in the  20-foot shaft to be four feet between  well-defined walls.  The bond on the Mavis in Skylark  camp, given by E. T. Wickwire to D.  B. Mockrill on the 11th March, is for  $15,000, wilh payments of $1,500 on the  ist Sept., 1905, 13th Dec, 1905. the 13th  March and June, 1906, and $3,000 on  the 13th Dec, 1906, and 13th March,  1907. Work is to be commenced on the  "j.8t April aqd  to continue during life  of bond. In each two calendar month  work must be done equal to the labor  of one miner for 80 days, and in each  month not less than the labor of one  miner for 20 days. In all shipments  of ore Mr. Wickwire is to receive Vl1/.  per cent, of the net returns.  There have been rumors innumerable during the past week that the  Greenwood and Boundary Falls smelters are to be moved to Midway. On  tracing the rumors to their source they  were found to be only too true. Not  only the smelters, but the daily hours  of labor���-twelve���are to be moved. In  an interview D. A. Bannerman stated  that he would move , both smelters  by dray Monday morning. The new  combination smelter will get power  from Bonnington Falls, and water  from the Elk river in East Kooteuay.  Unless rumors are roped and branded  when young they are difficulty to identify. The smelters will have to move  pretty lively to keep up with the rumors.  James Cronin,-manager of the St.  Eugene, War Eagle and Center Star  companies, when asked about the compressor plant that is to be installed at  the St. Eugene said: '"We have ordered an, air compressor from the  Jenckes Machine company. It will  have a capacity of 3,000 feet of cubic  air per minute, and will furnish power  for 30 machine drills. It will be  shipped from the manufacturers about  June 20th, and will..- be installed in  July, and we expect to have it running  by August 1st. Boilers will also be  installed that will "have a -.capacity of  500 horsepower. 7r;hi_, will, give the  mine a 50-drill equipment, there ���now-  being 20 machine drills in use. An  additioh'to the building of 60 x 60 feet  is now being erected. We are getting  behind on development, and in order  to catch up we. have been compelled td  increase the capacity of the. plant.  To do this development work we will  probably have to add nearly one hundred men to the present number employed. The mill this month is beating all previous records. Up to March  23rd the concentrates shipped amounted  to 2,600 tons, or an average of .over  100 tons per day."  D0IN' LIGHT CHORES.  KEEP AWAY FROM HEDLEY-  .
