BHRNS&C  NEWS OF THE!  The War Eagle in Greenwood Camp���Smeiler Returns From  the Sunset���Shipment Fi;om the Buckhorn���The  Granby Smelter���Mining News From  the  Various Camps in the District.  In the summer of 1891 there were  made, in a part of the Boundary Creek  district since known as Greenwood  camp, five locations embracing- mineral  claims all of.which today give promise  of becoming- permanent mines. There  may have been other locations;, made  about the same time, but is bf these  five neighboring- claims "that mention,  is here being- made, and of one of them  in particular���the War Eagle���that it  is now intended to give fuller information. The locations of the Old Ironsides and the Knob Hill were both recorded on July. 25,1891, at Camp McKinney, that being then the nearest  recording- office. The former was located by M. Hotter, since deceased,and  the latter by Henry "White, also well  known in connection with tlie City" of  Paris and Lincoln claims, in White's  camp. Nine days later, on August 3,  the location of the Stemwinder by  James. Atwood, now resident at Midday, and James Schofield, who returned  to England in 1896, was recorded. On  August 4 the Brooklyn was recorded,  Steve Mangott, now of Fairview, and  Jos. M. Taylor, still resident within  four or five miles of this claim, being  the locators. The War Eagle was located by Robert Dqnzler, now in Spo-  .kane, and W. A. Donglas- and was re.  carded on August 20.  vM��cl) has been published Qf the 014  Ironsides, Knob Hill, Stemwinder and  Brooklyn from time to time, but not  nearly s-o qit-ch prominence, has yet  been given Jo the War Eagle. The  reason is a very simp .e one���the four  firt-t named properties were acquired  by Eastern Canadian capitalists be foi'-e  the War Eagle was, and. their systematic development was entered upon  much earlier. All five claims, however, have these things in common,  viz., they were all located under an  earlier Mineral Act which gaye 1;hem  ��xtra-lateral rights (thai js tlie right  \q fqllqw their ore on ;ts dip, even  ghould it continuie into an adjoining  claim), unc. atf are now controlled by  Eastern Canadian companies.  Any. one  familiar  with  the hill or  ionnsorrs New Map    -  of  mountain upon which are situate the  Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, Victoria,  Grey Eagle, War Eagle, Tamarack,  Monarch, Gold Drop, Snowshoe and  adjacent claims will agree with the  statement that the numerous mineral  outcroppings, taken in relation to  underground developments on several  of the grpup, mark this particular section of Greenwood camp as giving extraordinary promise of mineral wealth.  True, it is not every one of the claims  named that has a similar big surface  showing to that on the Knob Hill or  even to that on the Snowshoe. "Yet,  granting this, the showings on or near  the surface are such that the designation "mineral farm/'; applied sometime since to the War Eagle particularly, might without any stretch of imagination be given to the whole of this  group.  The War Eagle has,an altitude of 5,-  070 feet above sea level and about 2,-  000 feet above Greenwood City. It is  situate in thickly timbered country,  and so possesses the advantage of having a home supply of mine timber and  fuel. It has too a fair supply of water  for- mine purposes. On the claim occur three outcrops of mineral, but -stiff-cent wotk has not yet been done to  determine thoir connection, if any,  with one another. It matters little  though whether thesoare the outcrops  pf separate veins or of, one.big lead  split up near the surf ace;" whether they  are extensions of the big pre body already followed from the Kriob Hill into  the Grey Eagle and believed by some  to continue thence into the War Eagle,  or are quite distinct from that deposit.  There is this, one simple but important  fact standing out, that where prospected below ground, copper-gold ore  of good quality has been found to underlie the mineral outcroppings, "so  that developments to date encourage  the belief that with depth the War  Eagle will givo a good account of itself  and be a valuable property on its own  merits, and will so be quite independent of the reflected seeming importance  so often attached to a plglm that is com  sidercd te be well situate or is simply  In good company.  The War Eagle is owned by the  Greenwood-WaS* Eagle Copper-Gold  Mining company, of Sherbrooke, Que-  bcc.-capitalized at $1,'500;000.'~Its^officers are: Mr. F. P. Buck, president;  Mr. t-C. H. Fletcher, vice president,  and Mr. C. A. French, secretary-  treasurer. The mine is equipped with  the following power, plant: One 80-  horse power horizontal return tubular  boiler, half a 10-drill R��\nd duplex air  compressor, or-e 43 inch by 10 feet air  receive^ three 3# Little G-iant drills,  30-horse power hoisting engine, 14x7x12  Kuowles station pump, No.. 5 Cameron  sinking pump, 4*4xV,��x.4 boiler fee<l  pump, Wainwri.^ht feed water heater-  avnd ajl Requisite accessories. The  plant,is CQiivenient-ly arranged and is  housed in a roomy sawn lumber building which also serves the purpose of a  shaft house. The work done in the  course of underground development includes a double-compartment vertical  working shaft, 105 feet in depth, with  a crosscut at the 100-foot level, run  easterly 205 feet and westerly 170 feet,  At the west end of-this crosscut a raise  has already been mado connecting  with an Qpe'n cut some 25 feet in depth  sunk in a strong outcrop of magnetic  hematite, impregnated with copper  pyrites. The raise ran into ore a.\  about half way to the surface, consequently th^s pre body has been opened  tip to, a depth of about 50 feet. An  average sample from right across the  working gave gold SI.60 and copper  about $20. From this it will be seen  that values were chiefly in the latter  metal. An upraise is now being made  at the eastern end of the crosscut -to  connect with a prospect shaft from  which some nice-looking copper ore  was obtained down to  its depth of be  tween 20 and 30 feet. The intention is  to proceed with development work,  sinking and crosscutting, so as to determine where the ore lies in quantity.  C. G. Buck is the conipn.i*3''s resident  manager and D. H. Duncanson its  mine foreman. There are usually  from 15 to 20 meii on the pay roll.  Both manager and foreman have their  homes on the property, and besides  their residences the mine buildings include comfortable boarding aud bunk  houses fur the miners and other employees.. The War Eage is within a  mile of the town of Phoenix, with  which it has wagon road communication. Later, when the mine shall have  been sufficiently opened up to require  direct connection with the railway, it  will be an easy matter to find a good  grade for a spur line from Hartford  Junction, distant only a mile or so.  The News is prepared to present to  its readers today something more than  mere hearsay to street rumors concern  ing the Trail smelter. It has been  learned that a large amount of work.in  addition' to that already in progress,  will be in full swing on the smelter  premise.-; in a short time." The capacity  of the smelter will be increased from  700 *��� to 1,000 tonsper day. There will  also be a great increase in the working  force about the premises. Two new  lead furnaces will be commenced at  once. Additional .roasters for lead  ores are to be built;- Another, large  copper furnace will be added to the  one already in use. More receiving  bins are to be erected. A new crushing plant is to, be put. into-operation.  In addition to the kiln of 500,000 brick  recently burned and the 525-000. now being manufactured on . Sonelter hill a  large consignment will come from Robson, already contracted for. A large  amount of rock work will be required.  To quarry, and get the rock piitlie  ground will require.a-large force and  the outlay of a big sum of money..  Brick and stone masons are already, in  demand .Large, excavations will be  made in divers places. Extensive  orders for lumber aifct other building  material will soon be.placed. Many  contracts will probably be called for.  We. cannot at this time go into all the  details, but as the work. progresses  from, week to week we shallendeavor  to keep .: our readers posted. ��� Trail  News.  -.-  Mr. RichardPlewman, of Rossland,  official broker and director of the Winnipeg Mining company, came in on  last Saturday night's train. He was  accompanied by Mr. J. H. Thomas,  also of Rossland, who is understood to  have a considerable holding of Winnipeg stock. Both registered at' the  Hotel Armstrong and before returning  to Rossland they paid a visit to the  mine. From Mr. Plewman it was  ascertained that consequent upon the  workings at the 50-foot level having  lately^run^into'a-G-footvein-of-ship-  ping ore another shift of men has been  put on to get out ore for prompt ship-,  ment to the smelter.. Operations had  latterly been largely restricted; to cross-  cutting for ore at the 100-foot level,  stoping above the 50-foot 'and/drifting  on the ore exposed somo time ago.  when cutting the railway grade. It  now appears that the latter shoot of  ttce iaa, separate one froth in which an  old prospect shaft had been sunk to a  depth of 45 feet. Recent smelter returns from ore from these two shoots  have been between $10 and $11 per ton,  clear of freight and treatment charges,  so that it has brought a good margin  of profit above cost of mining it.  There has not been any new development in the crosscut at the' 100-foot  level. Nothing is now being done at  the 300-foot level, but it is proposed to  again give attention s to. this part of  the mine later.  Smelter returns are fatal to the general  impression that ores of Deadwood camp  are lo w grade. Last week a car load  of ore was shipped to the Trail smelter  from the 3,-?-foot ledge on the Sunset.  This week Superintendent Johns received a cheque for the net value of  the ore and it conclusively. proves that  the Sunset ore at least will pay for  transportation and treatment and leave  a big margin of profit. Mr. Johns has  no instructions to make public the  value of the ore, but it nears the 320  mark. Ore of this value cannot be  considered low grade. The ore in the  Sunset shaft is still maintaining its  permanency.   A drift was started from  BIG  FIRE  AT COLUMBIA.  Escalet's Hotel and Other Buildings  Being Destroyed.  Just as the Times goes to press a  telephone message conveys thc intelligence that a big lire i.s raging in Columbia. Escalet's hotel and thc big  block adjoining arc a mass of flames  and several buildings in the vicinity  will be destroyed.  The appartus for fighting fire is  limited so that it will take its course  aud probably five blocks will be  destroyed.  The block adjoining Escalet's is a  big building built last year by Smith  Bros. & Travis of this city. : It was intended for an hotel but owing to dull  times was never opened.! Smith Bros.  & Travis are interested in as 'much as  a balance of about $4,000 is due them  on the building.  It .will be remembered that last year  the big hotel in Columbia and run by  Escalet was destroyed and the fire  created a sensation since an effort  was made to implicate prominent  citizens of Grand Forks in connection  therewith.  It could not be learned this afternoon  whether there was any insurance on  the burn, buildings. "**.  IN SIMILKAMEEN DISTIGT  (.Continued ou fate ?.)  New York Capitalists Bonding Prop-  -��� c   ert.es on Kruger Mountain.  Brewster, Aug. 10.���P. W. Corcoran  and E. R. Hurd arrived here yesterday  and left immediately for Seattle.  After spending some time in that city  they will go to New York, where arrangements will be definitely concluded  that are of interest to the entire Similkameen mining region. Mr. Hurd is a  New York capitalist, whose attention  has been attracted to the Northern  Okanagan mines, and who has been on  a tour investigating their merits. The  result; is.'that a deal has been closed  bonding..a group of ..mine-* on Kruger .,.  mountain for a sum understood to aggregate $100,000, and that the trip to  New York is now being niade to hasten  preparations for immediate work on  the properties bonded this fall.  P.'W.:Corcoran, one of the locators  and principal owners of the group,who  is well known as a mining superintendent in various districts in tlie  northwest, will accompany Mr. Hurd ���  to the east.  The claims'bonded include the O. K.,  ClarieD., Sixteen to One, Gold Standard, Monetary, Golden Chariot, Golden  Boyi Waverly, New Year, Black Warrior and Black'Diamond, all Kruger  mountain properties. They have  ledges varying from two and one-half .  to forty feet, carrying values of 25 per  cent copper and 10 to 25 per cent gold. ,  The   ore   is   a  smelting   proposition.  The"*location"=of-=the=group on-Kruger   mountain is about one.qttarter of a  mile from the international boundary  line and four miles from Oroville.  Within one and a half miles of the  claims are the properties of the Okanagan Free Gold Mining company, constituting the old Allison group, -which  are being worked constantly by free-  milling process and are worth a mint  of money to their owners.  The Corcoran group differs from  these in being a smelting property,  hence a part of the arrangement now  under way provide for the mining and  shipment of a quantity of ore, probably  sixty to eighty tons, at an early date  to ascertain the required method of  working. Following this a smelting*  plant will be put in.  The bonding syndicate proposes to  start early in the fall on a tunnel  which will be projected into the side of  the mountain 1,200 feet and will give a  depth on some of the claims of 1,000  feet. This tunnel will be similar, excepting in length, to thc Palmer mountain enterprise, and will constitute a  second important step in-the way of extensive development in the upper Okanagan.  Mr. Hurd, who has been over a good -  portion of the northwest mining territory, is especially well impressed with  the locality here. He confidently looks  for livelier times in another year than  the country has ever seen. The recent  improvement in transportation facilities has added greatly to the advantages, of the region aud is opening the  way for more substantial work in the  near future. -X.  |August 15 1900.  THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.  "AW XX, persons, old and young, should have  WU their teeth examiued once every six  %P m Months by a competent dentist. Decay  will be present, and tartar forming-, which  nothing but a thorough examination will reveal. Professional service rendered In time  means high-class work, less pain and great  economy. A tooth filled when decay is Slight  will not be sensitive, the operation not long,  and the filling lasting, becaase the operator  has more and better structure to work on. He  is enabled, to make the walls of the cavity  thicker and stronger, and with slight danger  of exposing the nerve, the dread and fear of all  when having teeth filled. Have your teeth  attended to in time. D o not procrastinate.  Give the dentist good tooth-s<ructure to work  upon, and he will render you excellent service.  Many persons put off their visits to the dentist  when sensitive teeth have given frequent warning. With mind excited, body in high nervous  tension, and with excruciating pain and suffering plainly written on every feature, they come  for relief. How can the dentist be expected to  perform the best operation when the patient is  in the worst possible condition to receive it ? If  your friend is sick do not wait until he is al-  mbst dead before you do something for him or  send for the doctor. The doctor may save him  by coming at the last moment, and should the  patient recover be is liable to have bad health  tbe remainder of his life on account of not  having received proper attention at the right  time. Likewise, a tooth that is neglected may  be filled and saved at tbe last moment, but will  probably have bad health the rest of its life.  One person in a hundred has good teeth, ninety  nine persons in a hundred could have good  teeth with proper attention.  DR. R. MATHISON.

"WEDNESDAY, AUGUST IS, 1900i  GREATL.Y IMPROVED SITUATION  The returns from th�� inland revenue  department for the fiscal year ending  June 30, shows a total increase over  1895.%, the last year of Conservative  government, of over $2,000,000 of which  $930,000 is in revenue from tobacco,  over $800,000 in that from spirits, and  $130,000 in that from malt liquors.  The increase in the revenue from  tobacco is the most interesting by reasons of the policy of the present "government being a change of principle  from that followed by their predecessors and a change which many predicted would materially decrease the  revenue from this source. The policy  of the previous government was to tax  the consumer, suppress the producer  and benefit the manufrcturer. This  government had added a duty of 10  cents per pouud on the imported article. The result has been an increase  in the inland revenue aud yet an increase in the manufactories using  Canadian tobacco, and a tremendous  increase in the output of Canadian tobacco. The increase in revenue on  spirits is not only due to an increased  production, but also to the increased  charge imposed in 1897. The revenue  from inspection of petroleum has fallen off, because the government now  does that without charge, in the hope  that the consumer may get cheaper  coal oil.  The customs receipts for the month  -=^of^J.uly-have'^been_.S3,414,77i.,r,.j^Jni  *** crease of $461,098.47 over 1899, notwithstanding the additional preference  given to British goods since July 1st. -  EDITORIAL, NOTES.  Thanks to "the efforts of Robert  Wood and others, the estimates will  contain an appropriation of $8,000 for  the completion of the West Fork road.  The urgent necessities of this promising mining district should make it  imperative that the money should be  spent to better advantage than that  appropriated last year, and with a view  to establishing communication with  the mines rather than the construction  of a paved street where a common  wagon road would meet the require  ments.  Thk public school opened on Monday. There are many children of  school age in the city who have not  been enrolled. The law with reference  to non-attendance should be enforced.  The state, as well as the parent, ia interested in having no illiterates and  should interfere to see that neither  negligence nor prejudice on the part of  the parent does not prevent the child  from securing the advantages of at  least a common school education.  Smelter returns destroy the impression that the ores of Deadwood camp  are low grade. Twenty dollars per  ton from the Sunset and still higher  values for the shipment from the  Buckhorn show that the values are  high. This, with the enormous bodies  of ore already developed, will give the  camp a leading place in the district.  From all appearances the Dominion  elections   will   be  held  in   October.  The Yale-Cariboo district has the advantage ot being sufficiently large to  preclude the possibility of having the  election determined by local considerations.  The sitting of the provincial legislature is being prolonged notwithstanding the announcement that non-contentious legislation was to be considered.  Work .on the Laidlaw smelter will  be started in a few days. The plant  has been ordered since June.  Gxebnwood is the smelting, mining,,  financial and commercial center of the  Boundary country.  Two smelters in less than a year  speaks well for Greenwood's advantageous location.  The dull times are over. Get ready  for the increased business in a short  time.  Greenwood will be the Denver of  Boundary.  Greenwood gets another smelter.  PETCH-HAMBLY.  Last Thursday morning the residence of F. H. MacKenzie was the  scene of a most interesting event  the occasion being the marriage of  Mr. B. F. Petch, leading salesman of  Rendell & Co., to Miss L. R. Hambly.  The ceremony which was performed  by Rev. Mr. Balderstoh, was witnessed  by only the intimate friends of the contracting parties, all of whom hail from  the town of Watford, Ont. The bride  "was given away by her brother-in-law,  Mr. F. H. MacKenzie, and looked exceedingly charming in a white gena-  dine gown trimmed with Valenciennes  lace and vet ficheu with ruffles  bf lace and white satin collar and girdle. The bridesmaid, Miss  A. MacKenzie, was becomingly  gowned in white and heliotrope and  Carried a bower bouquet of white carnations "with long streamers of white  satin ribbon. The bridegroom' was  supported by his- old friend, Mr.  Geo. McKenzie, formerly of Hunter-  Kendrick, Greenwood, but now with  Wynkoop-Stepens* of Phoenix. Upon  the completion of the ceremony the  party were entertained to a delightful  wedding breakfast,"and after the usual  toasts were giyen and responded to,  and the congratulations of all received,  the happy couple departed amid  showers of rice for Rossland, Spokane  and other points west. The many  costly and appropriate gifts bear evidence of the high esteem in which the  young couple were held by their friends  and the Times joins with the latter in  offering its hearty congratulations.

JLii Hung- Chang, the Viceroy of Can-  i, is the richest, craftiest, cleverest,  as some folks believe, the most  {principled  diplomatist in the world.

It-was he who was responsible ior  the criminal unpreparedness of China-  to meet Japan in 1894. As the first  minister in China, he was provided  with millions "of money to purchase  ammunition and guns for the Chinese  naval and military forces, but instead.,  of disbursing the'money honestly he  put most of it in his own pocket, and  shared the remainder with foreign  firms���principally German���who sent  him guns of an obsolete pattern and  ammunition stuffed with sawdust.  This is only one of the many means  which the unscrupulous traitor uses to  feather his own nest.  It is said that L,i Hung Chang has  declined to obey the orders of the Empress-dowager to go toPekin. He prefers at present to remain in the "city  of rows," as Shanghai is called.

A game of foot ball has been arranged between the Old Ironsides foot  ball team and the Grand Forks team,  on Saturday next, the 18th inst. The  Phoenix team had their grounds damaged by the recent street grading, a  portion of .their grounds being on Old  Ironsides avenue.

EXCURSION TO B. C. MINES  Canadian Trade Review Advises Eastern Men to Visit This Province.  The Canadian Trade Review of Montreal -is  evidently a wide-awake paper,  as the  following "advice shows that it  is alive to the great  importance of the  mining industry  in British Columbia:  "It   is safe to say that no outside  communities  are more  directly interested  in   the    mining   industries   of  British  Columbia than those of Montreal, Toronto aiid Quebec, and it may  be  added with  equal  truth that, notwithstanding this fact,  comparatively  few ;from   any   of   these   cities  have*  visited our sister province to inspect  the districts or individul  properties in  which many of them have invested so  largely.   Their whole reliance is therefore placed   on what  they heard, and  hear.   Their broker is their   guiding  star,   and he  is  at once their adviser  and their agent,  and though the confidence   placed  in  him  may be fully  merited, still it is all important to be  in  a position to think for oneself and  not to be hopelessly dependent on the  judgement  of others. 'This applies to  the   matter of mines and mining investments with exceptional  force, and  should be acted upon by all who engage in them.   In the earlier stages of  the  gold  discoveries,   when   the  ore  fields   were  almost as inaccessible as  the distant posts of the Hudson Bay  company,  there  was  a legitimate excuse ifor not confronting the difficulties  that stood between the outer world and  the  hew  Eldorado.    That,   however,  has   given   place  to  a very different  state of things, and the whole country  has now been brought within easy distance,  while the conditions of trayel  are such as to invest the journey with  all   the character of a pleasure   trip.  This being the case, it seems hard to  understand  why the number availing  themselves of the1 opportunities given  is so comparatively  small.   The ever-  present question of cost is, of course,  the simplest and most natural explanation, and it is"*u_*doubtedly a stubborn  factor to deal with, the .noi'c so as it is  hardly to be supposed that under ordinary circumstances any sensible reduction can be made, but there seems a  method by which that can be at least  temporarity effected.   This is the season,  par excellence,  of special rates  and   special  inducements,   when-railway companies  are willjihg to provide  and the public to avail themselves of  "=-the-nieans="toy-travel-'at -what-may- be  called tempting rates,   JBJxursions are  the  order of the day, and while particularly  favorable   terms   attach   to  ordinary tours, it is but right to suppose that the very best would be named  for those bf an exceptionally important  character.   In this connection it may  be said or suggested that an excursion  to British Columbia, organized under  the auspices of. the ..several boards of  trade and mining boards of Montreal,  Toronto and Quebec, would probably  prove more attractive to the capitalists  and mercantile men of Quebec and Ontario than any that has   yet been put  before them.   That the C. P. R. would  spare no exertion to consult the comfort and in every way to further the  interest of its   patrons goes   without  saying, while every city and town in  the  Pacific  province   would  welcome  the advent of so important a representation   with   open  arms.    The  idea is  thrown out with the firm  belief that it  is   essentially  and  immediately practicable, and would be at  once a singu  larly  happy  combination of business  and pleasure."

MEWS OF THE MINES.  Continued From 1st Page.  the   100-foot   level   this  week and the  work so far is all in ore.  Agentleman recently from Montreal  brings with him a ��� report that may  have given rise to the rumor that the  Standard Oil people are interesting  themselves in Deadwood camp. He  states that a report was current in  Montreal that the Standard Oil people  had purchased 200,000 shares of tlie  Montreal 'Boundary Creek comy*any's  stock on condition that no further  stock was to be placed on the market  for one year when the price was to be  raised to SI. The report was-not  authenticated but was discussed -by  mining men in Montreal.  After waiting ten days for sufficient  water to fill the big flume, the sampling mill at the Granby smelter began  crushing last Monday morning. The  mill has a capacity of over 1,000 tons a  day. The machinery worked smoothly  and it is expected that the furnaces  will be blown in early next week. The  motive power is electricity which is  generated by a duplicate set of 16-inch  turbine wheels operating under an  effective head of water of five feet. A  dam was built across the North Fork  of Kettle river. A flume one mile long  carries the .water to the power house  where 1,200 horse power is developed  at low water. The saving as compared  with steam is estimated at from $25,-  000 to $75,000 per annum.-A portion  of this power will ultimately be transmitted to the various plants of the  Miner-Graves syndicate. The smelter  will treat the ores of the Knob Hill,  Old Ironsides,Victoria, Majestic, City  of Paris and R. Bell mines. Its capacity within a year will be enlarged  to. 1,000 tons per day. The company  has also secured a second smelter site  at Carson, B. C, a point on the international boundary.  This week the Buckhorn shipped a  car of high-grade copper ore to the  Trail smelter. "'The ore is probably  the highest grade copper ore that ever  left the Boundary countryyand it is  safe to; say that the smelter returns  .will be $30 to the ton. W.: W. Bailey,  one of the principal shareholders of the  company who spent a couple of weeks  here, left on Tuesday for his home in  Sherbrooke, Que. It was his intention  to remain a day at the Granby smelter,  Grand Forks. W. C. Noblej'the resident manager, accompanied Mr. Bailey  as far as Grand Forks.  and will proceed to Toronto as soon  as he disposes of some business he has  got here with the government. Maun,,  his partner,wasialong with MacKenzie..  MacKenzie said he had succeeded in  floating very, successfully the bonds of  the Canadian Northern. The work on  theroad was progressing. In a couple  of months there would be 100 miles  built :from Port Arthur towards . the  Atikoakan iron mines. The line would  reich the mines this fall, but will be a  distance of 145 miles westward from  Port '-Arthur. In about two months  there will also be 1000 miles built southeast from "Winnipeg* to the south of the  Rainy river. This will lejive about  142 miles to be completed next year.  It should be mentioned that the.Can-  adian Northern embi aces from Port  Arthur to the Saskatchewan river by  Winnipeg.  Brick l BncK!!  YARD AT DEADWOOD. B. C.
