No. 45  KNOB HILL  UNIQUE ORE QUARRIES ON THE BIG  MINING  PROPERTY.  CAPABLE      OF     GIVING  Enormous Tonnage of Ore���Description of Underground Workings  of Granby Mines-  it is almost impossible/for any one  who has not visited andseen for himself the big- open cuts at the Knob Hill  mine to form an'adequate idea of the  extent and astonishing- productiveness  of these unique ore quarries. Even  those who from time to time have seen  them can scarcely realize the enormous  tonnage of ore they are capable of giving. Seen from above'they do tiotim-  press the visi.or today too-nything like  ���the extent they will -do after the-' big  ���cut now being made from the level of  -the Knob Hill railway spur shall have,  .some time hence, been advanced into  the hill and so give a face of ore, the  like of which it may be confidently asserted, is not now to be found anywhere  else in Canada, and is not.likely to be  ���for a long while. 1} will be two or  three years, in all probability before  -this open cut or quarry will.have a;face  the full depth available, for the distance-front the starting place of the new  "working, below the Dig- dump "of ore  -taken out in running- the long tunnel  into the Knob Hill, back to the most  -southerly face of-the, quarry, may be  -roughly stated at about 800 or 900  -feet. From the highest point of the  present rock-face down to where the  ���ore is now shot down /.'.the inclined,  shafts to the main tunnel below is  about 60 feet, and these shafts are ISO  ieet on the incline, so that from the  top of the rock-face referred to down to  the tunnel level is somewhere about  "200 feet vertical depth. Then the raii-  Tvay track level is about 30 feet lower  -still, so there is a good margin allowed  in these approximated depths when the  ���vertical height of ore that will be  available above the railway track level  -is stated at 200 feet. As to its width,  -well that can only be surmised by the  writer, in the absence of an opening  -rig-hit across it, but it is surely more  than enough for the present to state  -that the prospective surface workings  of the Knob Hill mine give an avail-  -- able- mass-of- ore���wide-enough^f or,_a  railway track and room for a"steam  shovel to work on each side to loadthe  *x>re cars, and with an eventual vertical  ' iace of 200 feet of ore. Now this will  -.read like fiction, but the rock and the  ....gradually extending workings are there  SCHOOL  j.'**-*.���  M  ,���-*���-  'mi  M  Supplies.  ���\Vc liave in stock a complete lino of all the  newly ;uit,lio-i/.t*il text books, ulso  (A  && SLATES,  SCRIBBLERS,  xHm&y-s>  ETC.  "Onr prices ate right and you can save tnouey  by buying your school suiSpHes from  to be seen by anyone and everyone, the  only condition being that no one will  attempt to take away the whole "shooting match" in his pocket. In all seriousness, the sight is the most impressive in connection with the mining  industry to be seen in the Boundary.  Nor is this all, for it must be kept in  mind that the level of the Knob Hill  tunnel, which is taken as the base of  the above picture, is above the collar of  the shaft of the adjoining mines,  which have large stopes opened at a  a level 200 feet still lower, that is to  saj- that were the 200-foot level of  the* Victoria and Old Ironsides run  far enough south -to come vertically  under the farthest south open ore face  on the Knob Hill it would give a depth  approximately of between 400 and 500  feet of ore,���it may be deeper. And  since the width is not even hinted at  here except to now state that it is very  wide, it may be claimed in all reasonableness that in describing this mass  of ore as "enormous'.'-there is no exaggeration nor the possibility of misleading. There is this' ���further remark  to make���the "imit of depth is by no  means reached, for time and much  more work alone will tell how deep the  ore goes. So it is that-those who think  word pictures such as this is.are untrue  and uot warranted "by the; conditions  that exist are simply unable to conceive the extent of' the mineral resources of this single group of Boundary  mines and need nothing short of ocular  demonstration to convince them that it  is their limited powers of conception  rather than the writers imagination  that is at fault. As to the value���well  it must be taken for granted, that since  the Granby company is still, as it has  been doing for. months, sending to the  smelter without preliminary sorting  the whole of the rock broken down in  this extensive quarry, it contains sufficient value to make its extraction and  treatment a source of profit, else would  the management have ere how ceased  hauling it fornix. .  The undergrotirid workings of the  Granby mines form too big a subject  for more than passing mention in  a notice giving the impressions of a  visit of only an hour or so's duration,  so nuthitig in the direction of a description of them will be attempted just  now. It may be stated that about the  surf ace of the group many evidences of  substantial progress are to be seen. A  commencement has been made to sink  what will eventually be a flve-compart-  men t shaft���the main working shaft of  the group. A 5x5 Bacon hoist was this  week placed in position for doing such  preliminary work as hoisting rock and  lowering timbers for-the time being  in sinking this shaft. A more impor-  tatrt-jtWitio^ the mines-  plant ,is the timber-framing Inacriirie  which should by this time be in operation,' its installation having been  practically completed when the mines  were, visited early this .week. It is a  single end timber framer complete  with wedge sawing machine and having a swinging cut-off saw. It is driven  by a 45-horse power Meyers cut-off engine which, together with all shafting,  pulleys, etc., was manufactured by the  Jenckes Machine company, which sup.  plied the whole plant.. '. The timber  framer and carriage were made by the  Denver Engineering Works and  obtained by the Jenckes people from  the manufacturers. This new plant is  housed in. a well-built sawn lumber  building, the engine being bedded on  a solid rock foundation underneath and  the framer on the floor above. A railway track has been run along the front  of the building and alongside a strong  skidway on which the timbers will be  landed and rolled down to.the carriage  at the lower side whence they will be  run on a tram to the framer.  The mines are maintaining a comparatively large output, occasionally  sending 1,000 tons a day to the smelter.  Ly is evideut that a larger daily output  can be kept up whenever the smelter  shall be in shape to treat it.  THE OLD FLAG  PATRIOTIC GATHERING AT MOTHER  LODE MINE ON SUNDAY.  BRITISH ENSIGN HOISTED  On Flag Staff at the Mine���Patriotic  Speeches by Jno. A- Macdonald  and Others.  There was something of a jubilation  at the Greenwood smelter last Sunday  to celebrate the conclusion of the first  six months' run of the furnace. Of  course there was no stoppage of smelting operations, but the boys found time  to put away, a couple of kegs of beer.  Take your prescriptions to the  Windsor Drug Store, W*. E. Anderson,  Greenwood.  An interesting gathering toook place  at the Mother Lode mine last Sunday  evening in connection with the hoisting for the first time of a large new  British ensign some of the patriotic  workers at the mine.had purchased for  display on all suitable occasions.  These enthusiastic supporters of our  country's flag were not content with  ihe small flag that had hitherto been  flown from the mine flag-staff on holidays and at such other times as called  for a display of bunting, so.; they decided to purchase, by,, subsctiption  among themselves, a flag the size of  which would better accord with their  desires to do honor to the colors of the  land of their birth or adoption. Lately  a flag, of bunting, 9 feet by 18 feet  was received and it was arranged to  mark the occasion of its first flying on'  the mine flagstaff by some little, ceremony. Accordingly Mr. Frederic Keffer, general manager of the British  Columbia Cop->er company, and Mrs.  Keffer, were invited to be present on  the auspicious occasion, and with them  went Miss Keffer, of Cleveland, Ohio,  who is at present the guest of her  brother and Mrs. Keffer. Mr.7R. H.  Hutchens, mine superintendent, * and  Mrs. Hutchens,-.were also guests of  "theboys.". The only press representative present was Master Robert Keffer editor, printer, publisher and  general factotum of the Anaconda  News, consequently that diminutive  publication secured a"'-scoop" much to  tl.e delight of its 3'outhful proprietor.  However, the Times has succeeded in  obtaining particulars of the proceedings, as follows:  At -ha'f. past seven o'clock on the  evening above mentioned, between 100  arid 200 persons assembled around the  flag-staff, in front of the mine dining  hall, to take either an active or passive  part in the programme that had been  arranged (by request) by John A. Macdonald, formerly of Toronto, but' for  jsome^time^past a resident in Frederic-  ton, which is the designati6n"y>f~ the  village at the mine. Mr. Macdonald is  somewhat of a genius in the direction  of speech-making and on this occasion  this poetical orator, who at every suitable opportunity delightsthebovs with  his flow of words, had carte blanche to  indulge his fancy and exercise his  pleasing faculties, and it must be said,  in common justice to him, that he succeeded admirably, rising to the occasion  and infusing a patriotic enthusiasm  into the proceedings that added greatly  to their impressivenessand importance.  His opening oration was distinctly appropriate and interesting, treating of  (1) The Flag���its uses; (2) The Flags  of the Children of Israel when they left  Egypt; (3) "The Flag of Old Rome���  Spor. the meaning; the Senate and people of Rome; (Here he recited "It's Only  an Old Bit.of Bunting;") (4) The Color  Sergeant at Televera who, mortally  wounded, rolled himself up in the flag  and then died: (5) The Brazilian railway engineer-in-chief at the time of  the revolution, when the armed bands  came to the camps they ited the  British flag; (Another recitt .on, "'The  Flag We Have Learned to i.ove;") (7)  Johnson's narrow escape in Cuba, when  the British flag saved him; am' (7) The  blowing up of the gates of Casrmeer.  The oration concluded, the fl; j- was  hoisted. In the words of one who w_ls  an active participator in the proceedings, "As the grand old emblem rose  slowly up the pole more than ahuudred  voices joined in the sweet strains of  'Rule Britannia,' and as it reached the  niizzen peak and spread itself put  languidly on the quiet evening air  three rousing cheers and a 'tiger' were  given for the emblem of liberty."  Continuing, the- enthusiastic scribe  tells of the after proceedings as follows: The joyous crowd then adjourned to the Mother Lode hall where a  sumptous repast was spread. For over  an hour busy tongues played an accompaniment to the plying of knives  and forks. Then the chairman, Mr.  Macdonald, rose to order and the business of drinking toasts began. Toast  No. 1, "The King," with one verse of  the National Anthem, was responded  to by J. A. Crawford. No. 2, "The  President of the United States," by  Mr. Keffer. No. 3, -'The object uf our  gathering/' by J. A. McKinnon, who  for nearly twenty minutes entertained  his hearers with his sparkling wit. No.  4,'"The Union Jack and the Stars and  Stripes," by B. Mclntyre. No. 5, "The  social aspect of our gathering," by Mr.  Burt. No. 6, "The cherishing of our  National Seutimenl," by *A. H. F.  Meyer. No. 7, "Our Mining Industries,"  by Mr. Hutchens; and last, but not  least, the eighth on the lint, ''The  Ladies," responded to by Messrs. Wilson, McCelland, Sophie and Graham.  These four young gentlemen handled  their subject in a manner which showed plainly where their hearts were. A  few words spoken by Mrs. Keffer in  that lady's usual kind manner were  much appreciated by her audience j_s-  Were also the addresses of one or two  other ladies present. At eleven o'clock'  the happy company, after singing the  National Anthem, dispersed. As they  wended their way homeward under the  brilliant arc lights, Britain's Ensign,  which still hung at the top of the staff,  bent gracefully downward as if it  would fain embrace .all who passed beneath its drooping folds.  SMELTER   CLOSED  BEAVERDELL  RENDELL    AND    BEAVERTON    ON  WEST   FORK   AMALGAMATED  BY JOINT STOCK COMPANY  Townsite Owners Decide to Build One  Good Town on West Fork���A  Promising  Outlook.  To Make Necessary Repairs After a Splendid  Record.  After a most successful run of six  months it has been found necessary; to  shutdown for a few days the blast  furnace at the British Columbia Copper  company's smelter, at Greenwood, so  as to'allow of the brickwork forming  the upper part of the furnace being renewed, the bricks being so afiected by  the continuous heat as to have made  their replacement imperative. The  furnace was blown out yesterday afternoon and today bricklayers commenced  to make the requisite renewals.  It is claimed for this single furnace  that ithas made the .-.best record, as re-  gaads daily average tonnage.of. ore  ���treated, "known in.the history of copper  smel ti n g. Dun rig five mbnth^to July  Hit its average of ure t/eated was i71  tons a day. Latterly the average has  been materially increased, that for the  month of July having been 385 tons  per day.  ""The"closing dowti-of-thesntelter-=has  involved a similar, temporary suspension of work at the Mother Lode mine,  where all the men directly engaged in  stoping and raising ore have also been  laid off. The mine ore bins are all  filled, ,as too, are most of those at the  smelter, where there is now only room  for the ore that is coming in daily from  from the B. C. mine, in which shipments there will not be any interruption. A few men are still employed at  timbering and other mine work requiring to be done. It is definitely  promised that work will be resumed  next Wednesday or Thuasday. Meanwhile thc re-nairs at the smelter will be  executed as expeditiously as possible,  and it is intended to blow in the furnace  again on Thursday, or earlier if  practicable.  The erection of the second furnace,  already arranged for, will in the future  obviate the necessity for a similar total  suspension, even for alike brief period,  of orerreductioii works, for with two  furnaces.Vrepairs, when necessary, can  be made to one'.whilst the other continues ini operation.  It is now Beaverdell. There is no  more Beaverton or Reudell. The two  towns of the West Fork country whose  proximity to each other threatened to  endanger the future of both have been  amalgamated in name and in fact.  Beaverdell is,, as will be noticed, a  union of the first part of Beaverton  and the last of Rendell. The combination does notstrikeone as beiruras jcood  aseithey'_Sei-.ver-v.-_ot-ji-.��.u4kc-i,i_iaite^.  a town has grown to greatness handicapped by a: worse name than Beaverdell. ���;-  The amalgamation assures a flourishing centre-on the West Fork if the  country is going to amount to anything and all the signs in a mining  district are valueless or the West Fork  is going to become one of the most important mining sections of the province.  *A - company has been incorporated  under the name of the Beaverdell Town-  site company, limited, to take over all  the land owned by the Rendell town-  site, ; the Wheatley pre-empti-*-n and  Mrs. Thompson's pre-emption or. the  townsite of Beaverton. All the land  has been Crown:granted.' There is  about 700 acres available for townsite  purposes.

Kerr Houlgate, of Vancouver, and.  C. G. Honge, of .Nelson, came in last  Saturday night, in connection with the  recent deal under which the lines of  the Columbia Telephone'company pass  into fresh hands. On the face of it  the business has the appearance of  the Vernon and Nelson Telephone company having acquired the opposition  company's telephone system, but the  above-mentioned gentlemen are very  particular to inform people that such is  not the case. It matters little to the  public of the Boundary district who has  con trol =of=the^ Col um bia-- S3* stem, -but-,  what residents are interested in is  whether there will be amonoplyornot.  They must have faith, though, in the  assurances given, until they see  whether G. C. Hodge, as district manager for the Vernon & Nelson company, will compete very keenly with G.  C. Hodge, as district manager for the  Columbia Telephone company's successors. Meanwhile, as an earnest of  the genuineness of the competition, an  advance in telephone rents may be  looked for.  %?  J. R. Brown, of McLeod & Brown,  barristers, Greenwood, returned to the  city on jast Wednesday night's train,  afterjan\absence. in, the east of about  seven wteelrs. Before returning Mr.  Brown spent a&hort time at the Pan-  Americaa Exposition, Buffalo, where  he was mucrti impressed with the value  of Ontario's exhibit as an effective advertisement of the resources,^ especially  agricultural and mineral, of that enterprising province.

Between Hartford  Junction and Summit camp a  comparatively large extent of  country has been lire-swept. Near  the Rawhide and Snowshoe mines  much trouble was experienced; in  beating out the flames. The site  of what was Stout's saw-mi-ll,  near  Summit  Citv, was too near  *t   '  fire to be safe, but the plajit and  lumber were removed, so that no  damage resulted to them. These  were sold to .the Yale-Colmnbia  Lumber company, which took,the  mill plant to Cascade and hauled  all the sawn lumber to the railway  at the Denoro townsite for- shipment by rail when sold to users.  Last Friday night S. F. Parish  manager, and others at the-B. C.  mine, had an anxious time; for  fire almost surrounded the-mine  and at times threatened to destroy  some of the buildings. As* it was  some outbuildings caught and two  large sows were roasted* alive.  They were-got out of their shelter  shed once but made their way  back and by this time the place  was too hot for a second, rescue  to be made. A lot of young  porkers were kept out of. the way  of the flames.' Two men employed at the mine were* scorched  when walking tow-ueds Eholt.  Finding the fire ahead, too hot to  admit of their getting through  they turned back and! iin making  their way along the: road towards  the mine had the: skin of their  hands and faces scotched to such  an extent as to ma-keif necessary  for them to come- to Greenwood  for surgical attention. Fortunately their injuries-were only skin  deep, so that no permanent disfigurement is likely to result. As  the whole side of the mountain  near Eholt meadow was burning  fiercely Mr. Ehrlich sent up men  to load a lot of bides on a railway  car and had the. car hauled awa*y,  to prevent loss of their value in  ���case the fire caught Burns & Go's,  slaughter house premises. He  also sent in a force pump and 100  feet of hose and kept the buildings wet whilst, the risk of their  being ignited lasted. In other  parts, pf the district fires occured,  but on the-whole there was little  damage reported other than that  to standing timber. A thunderstorm on ' Tuesday checked th.e-  fires in some places but the rajir_,  was not general enough to extiin-  [guish all of them. With the  cooler weather that followed,  though, it is probable that: the  imaining fires will burn themselves out and so put an end to  the risk of further destruction  from this source this season.

Foster, the then  minister of finance, was there as  ���was also Sir Wilfrid Laurier, then  leader of the opposition. They  ���were to be the two principal  speakers of the evening. Mr.  Poster was first and he spoke for  over two hours, quoting innumerable figures and statistics to prove  that Canada was prosperous and  to convince his wearied hearers  that they were, really enjoying  good times. Mr.-Foster spoke so  long that there was a strong  suspicion' - that -in addition to  demonstrating'the prosperity of  : the ��� country,. he .also .wanted to  talk against time and thus prevent Sir ^Wilfrid ��� from delivering  , '��� "'theuteiiiiakfeiafld^  *: ,dbubtless^a^i77i3. i^e.'hour7 -a.as;  ���������:.���.-so.rlate;vtlis-t; S'irTWilfrid refrained  from making :aspeeG-i, but in a  few. words he knocked Mr. Foster's  labored effort into a Cocked hat  and made a. better impression  with the audience than would  hours of oratory. "When I am  in power," he said, "it will not  be necessary to quote figures to  prove that you are prosperous.  You can put your hands in your  pockets and know it."  ��� This incident, illustrates the  method the Conservatives had of  endeavoring to persuade the people that business aiid the country's  progress was satisfactory. In  1891 when the census was taken,  the same' system was adopted.  Factories and industries of all  kinds were plentiful in the bulletins issued by the census bureau  but comparatively scarce in reality  The padding of the 1891 makes  the 1901 census a dissappointment.  , The increase was not what was  expected.'   Notwithstanding the  ------fact-that^th e comparison between  over the mountains between the  Columbia -river and the Boundary  couutry at reasonable rates, the  Times, should not expect ' the  V., V. & E. will haul freight  over Hope mountains at reasonable " rates? The Times expects but little from any railway  corporation but it does claim that  if railways are forced to build  over mountains instead of following the natural highways, the  extra cost of running mountain  railways will be paid by the users.  We do not know what the Hon.  Edgar Dewdney will discover in  the Hope mountains. He may.  find a pass that will obviate the  necessity for climbing over the  mountains, but we do know that  the silly cry against American  roads, if successful, would force  thepeople intopatronizingnothing  ade mountain roads  Southern   British   Columbia.  companies  smelters   to  charge  mines    and *!������{'���!������!��*�����*!'*!������!����������*!������*';***!��� *!{.##��������#���!������##���* ^.Uf*-5Sf4^.H^.^'^��**ts��*it>*t--^^^i-j.*:-#��f^it(*��f^  the smelter' *  custom rate for treating their own  ores but must put in returns of  the actual cost of smelting, so  that a fine is placed upon companies enterprising enough to  build smelters so that a profit  may accrue from their low grade  ores.  The Tribune states that "working- mines at'a loss is ruinous to  province  a  owners and gives the  bad name." Quite true. But  working mines at a small margin  of profit.is. a good thing all round  and this would in many cases, be  possible were it not for the des-  criminating operations of, the two  per cent. tax.  but high  in  Nature, in her wisdoni,.' knew no  International boundary line and  made her. natural ��� highways  without refer ance to the 49th  parallel or the advocates or the  C. P. R.  TRACKMEN'S STRIKE.  EDITORIAL   NOTES.  the 1901 and 1891 figures is not as  was hoped for, the country has  had a healthy growth. In the  west particularly, the population  has greatly incrc.i- ed, the country  has been satisfaelo-ily developed  and the outlook 7. bright.  Had the 1891 census been honestly., given, the percentage of  growth would have been, satisfactory, but the errors of ten  years ago cannot destroy the  growing time. Canada is all  right.. With its wealth of natural  resources, with an enterprising  people and with a' business government; the census of 1911 will  tell a different story.  The Canadian Pacific railway  is described as Canada's national  highway.    It has been aided and  .encouraged'by^:pubUc money itntil  there is scarcely a .-place of ratty  importance .in'the: whole coutrtry.  that cannot be reached by thej/C.  P. R.   Under suck circumstances  the public ^|a-ye a)X direct interest  in anything tha|y retards ; traffic,  on  the system,   that  makes'  it  dangerous   and generally disarranges    trade _ throughout   -the  country.   For weeks the trackmen on the C. P.  R. have been  out on strike.    They want higher  wages.    The trackmen may have  been badly advised in their strike.  They had to contend with all the  forces of a powerful company who  used all the newspapers controlled  by them and* the C.  P.   R.  telegraph system for endeavoring to  create   a  prejudice against  the  striking men.   There is one fact  that stands out in connection with  the strike, and that is that the  trackmen in the west do not get a  living wage. . A man can't keep  a family on $1.30 a day in- B.  C.  and pay the C. P./R. from $5 to  $10 a month house rent.    Chinamen may be able to' do it but  a  whi teaman-hasn't4he,the capacity  for economizing to this extent.  The strike has caused vexatious  delays to business men and others  using the C, P. R. Travelling  on the road is risky, trains are  late, goods are delayed.- General  business is suffering. The men  and the company; so far have been  unable to reach an agreement. - In  the interests.'.of. the public the  government should step in and  adjust the matter.  Jno. A. Ma.cdona.ld is to be  congratulated upon the success  atteMitig his efforts in connection  with the 'patriotic gathering at  the Mothef vLode.;: Like his great  natnesakejie proclaimed his love  for the old flag under which  Canadians have been, contented  and happy. .

IF YOU WANT A: SUIT OF GLOTHES FOR LABOR  RAILWAY  GRADES.  The editorial utterances of the  Tribune are all awry these days.  In the days of John's greatness  the Tribune was sound on all  questions but under the new order  of things, the labored effort to  prove. that railway monopolies  and discriminating taxes are right  show that an inexperienced hand  is at the helm. It requires some  capacity and considerable experience to write in the interest of  corporations. The Tribune never  had that kind of capacity and  there has not been sufficient time  to acquire the necessary experience. The result is a lack of  cogency- and consistency. The  Tribuue argues that because the  C. & W. does not haul freight  ������):��� ;The . JGrknd.;W(^ks: ;^Kfews last  *^.eek*.itisiiiuates.r-that;-;&'reenwood  decided! to celebrate Labor Day  after' .Phoenix had announced a  celebration; Greenwood, gave way  to   Midway   on  Victoria   Day,  Graind Forks r on: Do^iuiott3 J),ay,  andybeing .the.most   important  city in the. district,  ter citizens  met and decided ib -i'bld'-a celebration   on '-Labor j.- Day, .the   only,:  general holiday left during the  year when a celebration could be  field." Phoenix then decided to  -Celebrate. . Had .the citizens, of.  Greenwood.known that Phoenix  intended to celebrate, they would  no doubt have again given way,  for they have always dealt generously^ with sister cities.    Having  anuounced the celebration, however, they could do nothing but  make the biggest and. best holiday ever celebrated in lhe Boundary.     The leading citizens  of  Phoenix admit that their holding,  a celebration is a mistake but  a  few hot-heads and sore-heads succeeded in having their way. There  is nothing but the best feeling  between-Greenw.ood-.and JPhpenix  and we hope it   may   continue.  Next year we do not think the  double celebration will be repeated but Greenwood and Phoenix  will   have   different   celebration  days.

A recent visitor .to the Winnipecr  mine says that work is. being done but  the foreman was not at liberty to talk  about the results obtained lately, so  that the report of a recent strike at  the 400-foot level could not be confirmed.'.

Mr; McMillan is expected. to.return next week, when it is not unlikely  he will be free to state what the intentions of ,the directors arc in the  direction of-more extensive development work. A prospect shaft is being  sunk on the Fairplay claim, which is  one of the Snowshoe group.  The Boundary Pioneers' Association  ���will hold its semi-annual dinner and  reunion at the Pioneer hotel, Greenwood, on the evening of Monday, September 2. There would in any case be  many of the old-timers in the city on  the occasion of the Labor Day celebration, arranged to take -place on that  'day, but now there will" be an inducement for even more of them to put in  an appearance. It was organized two  years ago. and held its first reunion at  Boundary Falls with Tommy Wake as  host. Its next meeting was held at  Midway, where Tom McAuley "treated  them white" and last time the veterans  met it was at Camp McKinney, with  Hughie Cameron brewing their liquor  for them.

P  age  THE &.REENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.  CURIOUS   CRITICISM.  Th*   Colonist   Pol.cs  Fun at  Smith   Curtis-  Disc* very.  The  coast  papers   have   been  making;  much   of  the  statement  that Smith Gurtis, M. P. P., had  on his ovm accord   found   a pass  through "the Hope mountains and  that he had recorded the fact   together with ti leather suggestive  Avaniitlg' "and d-on'tyou forget it."  Coast papers,<*ff all shades of politics have -been seriously  discussing the matter with   the  result  that the enterprising member for  Rossland has been proved a pathfinder!}' one aud   a  charlatan  by  thc  other.    Even  thc   venerable  Colonist has been  mixed  in   the  matter  with   the  result   that   it  gives half a column of flippantly  funny nonsense, that during these  ���dayscan be read  without  profit  but with, considerable  diversion.  The Colonist says:  An  ancient poem  records  the{  fact that  The King of France  With twice ten thousand men  "Marched up thc hill, and then���  Marched down again.  "We do not know what particular king of Prance performed this  ever-to-be-remembered deed, but  .Mr. Smith Curtis takes no chances  of being forgotten. He walked  up th.e hill and down* again,- and  inscribed the fact upon a tree,  adding the warning to all succeeding generations, "And don't you  forget it." For some years past  ���we have been occasio : ally reminded of a certain immortal sweet  Alice, but in her case the legend  ������' is "Don't you remember," and she  alas now lies under a stone of grey  granite. Our latest hero is very  much alive, and no Ben Bolt will  -have to be reminded of his existence. The hour is ripe, we  suggest for some poet to arise and  ���;give to the world,a ballad of- his  ���great achievement. Our own  poetical licence has expired or we  should attempt something after  this style:  "'And don't you forget it," Smith Curtis he said,  Smith Curtis who sought route for rail,  As he wrote down the date on a blazed  cedar tree  HVhich stands near the old Dewdnej-  . -.tail.  The theme is a wide and inspiring one.    We suppose  that uot  ar. ore than several thousand people  .Ifc-ctfj.. gone over Hope mountains  "��betw.een  the   beginning, of   the  .���woiil'd and the date of these  presents, as we used to say in the old  guarantee deeds, but not one of  "thesrn  has essayed  to  achieve  a  .-glorious immortalit)* with the aid  < b��-aa. "axe .and a lead pencil.    The  t&Gi&^ar -less   immortal   George  "Washington has  gone  down to  posterity because of a performance  ��� .of his -with a hatchet on a cherry  7t**fc. It is not record^ tkat  '���M-reorge expressed in lead pencil on  the freshly cut wood a desire that  his deed should not be forgotten,  ��� Jbslt he Jived.. in_j?_ther_days jthan  Jhese.    He had  to  trust  to the  ���memorj of his countrymen, but if  ;Mr. 'Curtis had done it, he would  '.'h_av.e{discounted his immortality,  :a.i3Jd    ^enjoyed    it   in    advance.  ''������.What-sail the world to a man,  ..when, his wife's a widow?" asked  the gentleman from Cork.     Of  what value to a man is it to have  ��� .some one a century or so after he  has gone  out of the world dis-  . cover-something that he has done  and make a fuss over it. The  time to be immortal is when you  are around to enjoy the sensation.  Thus Mr. Smith Curtis has been  truly wise in his day and generation in writing his wish not to be  forgotten upon the highest, point  he could find. If time and space  would permit, we wouid attempt  to portray the event. Doubtless  "'the shades of night were falling  Fasfvvhen the man from Rossland .inscribed*-..is strange device"  upon the side of a tree. He bore  no banner. No maiden begged  him to  "Stay and rest  Thy weary head upon this breast.''  He feared not "the pine tree's  withered branch;" he scorned "the  -'vrfui avalanche," as with one  eye on the summit' of the trail  ���and the other on political possibilities he. like (.ray's ploughman, pioddod hi**, weary way.

ROBERT   WOOD'S   TRI.  -���'   .He Talks  Hopefully  of His   Many   Mining  Enterprises.  At the Queen's hotel during the  last few days has been stopping  Mr. Robert Wood of Greenwood,  B. C. Mr. Wood, who is now a  man of between'50 at-d 60 years  of age, is one of the sturdy, courageous, far-seeing pioneers who  several decades ago left the East  to lay the foundations of Canada's  growing industrial empire on the  Pacific coast. Mr. Wood was in  the Cariboo gold rush in the early  sixties, and has" been identified  with the opening up of several  districts of - interior British  Columbia.  One of the greatest monuments  to his far-sightedness is the populous and busy town of Greeuwood  which is liamed after him. Less  than ten years ago Mr. Wood  went into the narrow canyon of  the Boundary creek, in Southern  British Columbia, and, at a point  where the trails from several important mining camps met, he  started a general store in a log  cabin. He cut down the woods  around his shack and established a  townsite. The mines developed  apace, and the log cabin -before  long became the nucleus of a little  settlement. Then the C. P. R.  came in, the mines were equipped  with machinery, smelters were  built, and now Greenwood is an  up-to-date place of 3,000, boasts a  dozen, hotels, an electric light  plant and other modern conveniences.  Mr. Wood was practically the  original owner of the whole  of the Greenwood townsite, and  he always has his hands full  of various enterprises relating to  the development of the country  around Greenwood! In fact his  visit to Toronto is merely an incident in a journey he is making  to England with a view to furthering some of these enterprises.  Among these enterprises is the  Vancouver arid Boundary Creek  Mining and Development company, limited, which owns a 1 arge  number of gold, copper and coal  properties in Southern British  Columbia, aud especially on the  West Fork of Kettle river. Here  the company' has opened up a  number of very promising propositions.  Perhaps the biggest proposition'  Mr. Wood has in hand just now  ' is a plan for the construction of a  line of railway joining.the C. P.  R. at Midway with another branch  of the C. P.'R. at Vernon. This  line will run through a tract of  valuable mineral country lying  between Rock Creek and the head  of the West Fork of -Kettle river,  and would also make tributary to  the Boundary a large ' area of  agricultural land lying south of  and around Vernon. Mr. Wood  has a charter from the British  Columbia, government for this  line, and if it is built, as he hopes,  Mr. Wood's plan'is to establish a  ���smelter-at-Rock-Greek,=--where-he-  already controls a large - sized  block of coal lands. His idea is  to bring the ores down from the  West Fork of Kettle river to Rock  Creek for treatment.  Besides being important locally,  this Midway-Vernon line would  solve the problem of giving the  Boundary country and Southeastern British Columbia a direct  line to Vancouver and the Pacific  coast.  Another enterprise iu which  Mr. Wood and colleagues are interested and have under way is  hyraulicking on a large scale on  Rock creek, which flows down  from Camp McKinney into the  Kettle river. They are building  heavy dams and putting in automatic sluice gates, and expect to  make a big thing when the equipment is completed. As is well  known, Chinamen and others have  for well nigh half a century successfully worked Rock creek  placer diggings by hand.  Mr. Wood will stay in Montreal  a day or two on his wa}** to England, his object being to see Mr*  Shaughnessy of the C. P. R. in  connection with his proposed railway.���Toronto World.

An expert, says the Outlook, was  recently faced by this question: "Here  is an advertisement for a trouser-  stretcher costing a few shillings. The  advertisement occupies half a page in  a journal where advertisement space  fetches ,��70 per page. ��� Do the ..owners  of this paltry article pay ��35 ior that  one advertisement?" ., The expert answered thus: "A certain firm who sell  a certain liquid in shilling bottles have  a gross turnover per annum of ��30,000.  Each of the two partners last year  drew ��7,000 in profit, (pffice expenses  account for another ��1,000, and the  cost of the liquid���which is mostly in  the bottles���is also ��1,000.
