Issued Twice a Week.
Reorganized M.&B. Company
Will Be Known as Dominion Copper Company
Good Progress Made on the
Tunnel at the Seattle
Mine
The reorganization plan of the
Montreal & Boston Consolidated
company has been officially made
public, and is summarized as follows by the Wall Street Journal:
The new company will be known as
the Dominion Copper company; it
will have 2,600,000 shares • of
stock, par 81, and 8700,000 bonds,
in lieu of the old capitalization of
1,300,000 shares, par 85. Of the
2,600,OQ0 snares of new stock 1,000, -
000 go to the stockholders, 1,400,000
go as a bonuB with the 8700,000
bonds, and 200,000 shares go for reorganization expenses and as a bonus
to Munroe & Munroe, creditors. As
these creditors hold 310,000 shares
of stock, they secure l"r shares of
new stock for each share of old. The
new bond issue of $700,000 is all
underwittcn, Mackenzie & Mann,
the original owners of the Dominion
Copper company, having underwritten 8300,000 of the new • bonds.
They will be offered to-stockholders
at 90. Underwriters get them 10 per
cent less. The new company wi
start off with its properties fully
paid for and about $250,000 cash
in the treasury.
Smelting operations have been ordered suspended while the smelter
capacity is being increased from two
to four furnaces, which will give it a
capacfty of 1000 tons per day. A
converter plant will also be installed.
Mining operations will be continued,
so as to be prepared to furnish the
smelter with 1000 tons of ore per
day when smelting operations are
resumed in about a month. The
property will have an entire change
of management.
Similkameen district. About three
weeks ago they arrived in the Boundary with F. L, Underwood, president of the British Columbia Copper
company, and VV, H. Thomas, consulting engineer, and in company
Manager Frederic Keffer, of the same
company, and William Anderson, of
the Cascade Water, Power & Light
company, they proceeded directly
to the Sunset group of claims, on
Copper mountain, near Princeton,
which have lately been bonded by
those interested in the British Col-
lumbia Copper company. Messrs.
Kellcrschon and Merriam remained
for some time in the Smilkameen,
making a thorough examination of
that mineral district !ts far as it
seemed desirable, and then came
back to the Boundary to visit some
of the more important shipping
mines. They brought letters of introduction to mining men in this
section, and it is generally understood and given out that they were
commissioned by James J. Hill, of
the Great Northern, to make reports
on the Similkameen, and while in
British Columbia did not fail to see
also tho largest mines of the Boundary.

Colonel Weir, of New York, wns a
recent visitor in the Boundary, on
his way to the Similkameen. The
colonel came to the Boundary in
1895 and took a bond on the Mother
Lode mine in Deadwood camp, in
which property he interested New
York capitalists, the result of which
is one of the largest shipping mines
in the west. The price paid for the
Mother Lode was $14,000, and over
half a million dollars was spent on
development before shipments were
made.
W. N. Merriam and J. Keller-
schon, mining engineers of Duluth,
Minn., have just completed an inspection of the mines of Phoenix
camp, after also looking over the

There were nine engines and train
crews in the Great Northern yards

tbusisastic and offered to wager that
I three years hence there would be
more men employed in the railway
yards in this city than in the Granby
smelter. But*he didn't find any
takers—possibly because it was the
Sabbath.

TUESDAY, MAY 23, 1905
The C. P. R., in it? fight against
the amendments to the V., V. & E.
charter, has enlisted the services of
a number of newspapers in this
province, and the performance of
1898, when the charter for the Corbin road was befare the Dominion
parliament, has commenced once
more. They are now vigorously
waving the old flag and printing
patriotic twaddle in serial form.
The Nelson Tribune has invented on
original battle cry. It says the advent
of the Great Northern in British Columbia is depopulating Canadian
cities. If the Tribune's editor had
been in this city a couple of days ago,
he could have seen nine trains and
nine train crews in the Great Northern yards at once. All of these men
live in the Boundary cities. They
were not here a year ago. Is this
an example of the policy of depopulation to which The Tribune refers?
Has the invasion of Southern British Columbia by the Great Northern
railway been an advantage to tho
Boundary country ? asks the Nelson
Tribune says. Most a.suredly. It
has reduced the time required for a
journey to Spokane fro*n two days
to half a day, and it has cut passenger and freight rates to and from
that eity in two; it has given us a
quicker and cheaper train service
to the coast cities, as well as railway
competition to thc outside world,
south, east and west. Lastly, it has
aided materially in increasing the
population of the Boundary cities,
notwithstanding the Tribune's assertion to the contrary.
At the Methodist church conference, recently held in Vancouver,
Rev. J. A. Wood, of Salmon Arm,
was elected president. In this district the following are the preachers

they are stationed: Nelson, W. W.

Proved In Mount Forest
Every doctor in this town tried his
best t4> relieve Mrs. J. Withorn of
asthma; none succeeded. "For years,"
she states, "I was a dreadful suflcrcr;
nothing gave relief. At times I found
it necessary to have all thc doors and
windows open toget my breath. When
in despair I heard of Catarrhozone. I
used it and now am perfectly cured."
This prove* beyond a doubt that uny
case of asthma is curable with Catarrhozone. No remedy so pleasant, none so
absolutely certain to thoroughly cure;
try Catarrhozone yourself; it's guar
imteed. II. E. Woodland, druggist.

IH.&B.SHUTDOVN
Temporary Stoppage oF Work
at Both Smelter and
Mines
Said to Be Due to a Change
in the Ownership oF the
Properties
Last Saturday G. H. Collins, superintendent of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated properties in Phoenix camp, announced that he had
been instructed by the management
to close the several mines pending
an examination. All work at the
properties of this company has, consequently, been suspended for the
present. The mines affected are the
Brooklyn, Stemwinder and Rawhide.
Details in regard to the cause of thi.*
temporary suspension are not made
public, but it is supposed that th
announced general annual meeting
of the company this week in New
York city to complete reorganization plans may have had something
o do with it. The pumps have
been pulled, and the engineers are
now en route from New York. The
number of men affected is between
200 and 250 at the mines and smelter. Since resuming operations last
summer rhe mines of this company
have shipped not far from 10,000
tons of ore that is generally believed
to be rather better than the average
of the low-grade mines of the Boundary.
A report from Greenwood states
that the shut-down of thc Montreal
& Boston Consolidated company's
mines and smelter is explained by
Mr. Pemberton, manager of the company's smelter, by saying that the
persons controlling the company
to date havo stepped out, their interests having been purchased by
financiers who have directed him by
wire to close the mines and smelter
temporarily, pending the arrival of
two experts, who are now on the
way to examine all the company's
mines and property and report to
the new owners. Mr. Pemberton
has denied absolutely the report that
the pumps were being taken out of
the mines. He Baid not only was
this untrue, hut that the mines
would be kept free of water entirely,
so that when the experts arrive the
examination can start immediately.
He concluded by saying thnt the information given was official and correct in every detail.
Her Skin Was Yellow
"I had only to try Dr. Hamilton's Pills
to appreciate their merit," writes Miss
Annie S. Bryce, of Woodstock. "My
system was out of order. My blood
was weak*and thin. I hod a nasty,
murky complexion. My skin was hard
and dry. The first box of Dr. Hamilton's Pills made n complete change.
I felt better at once. Healthy color
came into my face. In about three
weeks I was cured." Dr. Hamilton's
Pills effect an easy euro. Try these good
pills, 25e per box, or five boxes for 81,

C. P. R. Has No Intention of
Building If G. N. Legislation Is Defeated
If V., \.& E.Bill Passes the C.
P.R.Will Be Built to Coast
Without Bonus
An Ottawa dispatch stales that
Contractor Loss has acquired the
Kamloops, Nicola & Similkameen
charter from M. Beggy and St.
Catherines associates, and has entered into an agreement with the
Canadian Pacific to build 45 miles of
road to Nicola Lake from Spence's
Bridge. Slou'd the Canadian Pacific succeed in defeating the V., V.
& E. legislation, the company has
no intention of building this year,
but will renew their application
next session to the provincial government for a cash subsidy of 65000
per mile. In tho meantime, to keep
up appearances of bona tides, an announcement is made that work is to
bestartcd at once. Should the V.,V.
& . E. legislation pass work will be
vigorously prosecuted in a race with
the Great Northern to reach the
Similkameen, but the C.P.R. is extremely anxious to defeat tho V., V.
& E. legislation, as then they would
•lot be forced to build, and would bo
in a position to renew the demand
for a provincial subsidy next session.
J. Butler, of Colorado, arrived in thc city last week to inspect
sonic properties in Franklin* camp.
On his trip up the river he was
thrown from his horse and severely
injured, necessitating a postponement of bis journey until he has recovered. Ho left for Colorado last
Thursday, but intends to return to
the city a month hence. He is said
to represent strong American syndicates.
The Root of Neuralgic Headache
Is an irritable condition of the
nerves caused by cold. Relief comes
quickly from Nerviline, the great pain
reliever of today. "] consider Nerviline a magical .lemetly for neuralgia,"
writes Mrs. E. G. Harris, of Baltimore. "But I never worry if Nerviline
is in the house. A few applications
never yet failed to kill the pain, lean
always recommend Nerviline for stiffness, rheumatism and muscular pains."
In use nearly fifty years; try Nerviline
yourself.    II. E. Woodland; druggist.

Water in Yonr Blood?
Lots of people have thin, watery
blood—they eat plenty but don't
digest. When digestion is poor, food
isn't converted into nourishment—in
consequence the body rapidly losesJ
strength. To positively renew health,
nothing equals Ferrozone. It excites
sharp a|pitite—makes the stomach
digest, forms life sustaining blood.
Abundant strength is sure to follow.
If you need mure vitality, extra en-
ergv, better nerves, then use Ferrozone, the medical triumph of the age.
Fifty cents buys a box of fifty chocolate coated Ferrozone tab'e;s. H. E.
