A dispatch was received in this
city yeBterday confirming the appointment of Judge W. H. P. Clement to the supreme court of British
Columbia, to till the vacancy caused
by the elevation of Judge Duff to
the supreme court of Canada.
Mr.Cleiiient is a barrister and historian of national fame. He is the
son of the late Rev. E. Clement, Methodist, and on his mother's side is
connected with the Popes of Prince
Edward Island. He was born at
Vienna, Ont., May 13, 1858, and
was educated at the public schools.
In 1873 he won a scholarship at
Upper Canada college. In the next
year he matriculated in arts at To
ronto university with first class hon
ors in classics, mathematics and
modern languages. He graduated
B. A. in 1878. While pursuing his
arts course, he studied law, having
entered the law society, V. College,
in 1875, and was called to the Ontario bar in 1880, standing first in
his class. He also took' tbe law
course at Toronto university, winning a scholarship in each year and
tbe gold medal on receiving the
l-L.l). degree from that iustiiution
in 1881.
Judge Clement was for seven yeans
a member of the well known Toronto
firm of McCarthy, Osier, Hoskin &
Creelman, but since then he has
been the head of his own firm,
known as Clement & Spence. He
has served as an examiner in law'
and constitutional history at the
Toronto university. After contributing on constitutional subjects to the
Toronto Week, he published "The
Law of the Canadian Constitution"
(1892), a work which has been adopted on the curricula of Toronto
university, the Law School and
Trinity college as tbe standard work
on the subject of which it treats.
The late Sir John Thompson pronounced it as "being far in advance
of anything that has yet appeared
on the subject, and as being full of
thoughtful and efficient labor, and
full of the best information bearing
on constitutional questions." The
Canadian Monthly likewise declared
it "the most comprehensive work in
existence on the subject"
In July, 1896, Judge Clement wns
declared winner of the first prize of*
fcred by the educational authorities
of the Dominion, in the competition
opened by them iu connection witb
a text-book on Dominion history.
The prize consisted in a royalty of
ten per cent on the retail price of
the book after publication.
In religion Judge Clement is a
Methodist. Politically he is a Liberal, (and unsuccessfully contested
West York in that interest for the
house of commons in the general
election of 1891. In 1889 he married Elsie Luln, daughter of J. W.
Main, Brampton, Ontario.

At the adjourned meeting of the
city council last night the contract between the city and Wall Bros, k
Creelman for the construction of the
Fourth street traffic bridge was ratified. The contract was drawn up in
conformity with the requirements of
the provincial government in such
matters. The bridge must be completed by the 30th of March, 1907. It
will be 20 feet high above low water
mark, or five feet higher than the
Kettle Valley line bridge. The contract price is #0983. Mr. Creelman
stated that he intended to start work
about the 20th inst, and that he
would probably have the structure
completed by the end of February. :
The mayor and city clerk were authorized to sign the contract on the
part of the city.
The city clerk waa instructed to

tract had been let and to request the
public works engineer to forward spec

BIG LAND DEAL

P. Eckstein, formerly of this city,
charged with interfering with the
course of justice, was tried in Fernie
on Saturday before Judge Wilson
and was acquitted. The counsel for
the accused characterized the prosecution as persecution, and snid that
if there was any conspiracy it seemed to be one designod to shatter the
character of a respected and prominent citizen. In all his experience
he never had known or heard of
the vilest criminal being pursued us
his client had been.

The following mining deal, in which
local men are interested, is reported
by the Meyers Creek News:
Probably one of the most important
dealB ever consummated in northern
Washington was closed this week by
Hon. M. A. Smalley when the final
pa; ers were filed transferring the
Grant copper property on Copper
mountain to Geo. A. MacLeod and
associates, of Grand Forks, B. C. The
property acquired by these gentlemen
comprise six claims, and lies just over
the summit of the monntain about
two miles from Chesaw as the crow
flies. Although the price paid for the
property has not been definitely given
to the public, enough has been divulged to place the selling price at approximately $10,000
The Grant has always been considered one of the very best groups in
camp, sufficient development work
having been done in past years to disclose a vast body of chalcopyi ite ore.
In sinking a shaft some time ago J.
A, Anderson and others cut through
a 16-foot solid ledge of this copper
ore of unusually high values. Perhaps 150 tons of this rich ore is on
the dump and since placed there has
been inspected by all visitors to Copper mountain. It needs no expert to
determine that the ore is valuable, as
its wealth in copper is plainly visible.
In addition to this big lead of copper
ore there are other valuable deposits
on the property. The slope of the
mountain is so pronounced that the
most advantageous tunnel sites are afforded. A spring gushes from the
mountain side neur the cabins, affording an abundance of fine water, and
most of the property is covered with
a dense growth of the best tir and
tamarack mining timber.
About three weeks ago Geo. A.
MacLeod and H. W. Warrington
mode a preliminary examination of
the property, and took away with
them samples of the ore. Within a
few days thereuft*.r Mr. MacLeod returned with W. C. Thomas an A. D.
McPhee, whose knowledge of practical mining places them in the expert
class. These men mude u further examination and upon their report the
deal was closed. Sunday MacLeod
returned accompanied by Mr. McPhee
and H. W. Flint The following
morning business began by hunting
miners, transferring supplies from
Chesaw up to the camp, and looking
over trails, etc., for tho best possible
route for a wagon road down from the
mine that ore hauling may commence
ut the earliest possible date. It is reported that Mr. McPhee will be manager in charge of all work. At least
ten men will begin mining to start
with,and many others will be engaged
in building the road.

roll in camp with its resulting prosperity.    The former owners benefitted

Cascade Power Company
The statutory meeting of the shareholders of the Cascade Power Company, Limited, was held on November
I7th in London. F. Faithful Begg,
chairman of the company, read his report, the most interesting part of
which relates to its contest with the
West Kootenay Power and Light
company for business in the Boundary. In this connection the chairman said: "You will doubtless be
anxious to-know what the present
position of the business is. The
West Kootenay Power and Light
company,having failed to obtain legislative powers, is for the present debarred from doing business in our area.
The company hus, however, spent
lurge sums in building pole lines thru-
out the district in erecting a fresh
plant at the central station and has
also made provisional contracts to
supply our customers—contracts,
which, of course, at present they cun-
not proceed with. We must, therefore, anticipate a keen fight in the
legislature next year. Meanwhile,
however, our plant is fully employed
and we ure hopeful that we shall be
able to enter into contracts with our
customers for the extension of the
period of supply, thus putting ourselves in a position to compete successfully with our rivals. The directors, however, wish you to clearly understand that the situation is full of
difficulty. Our policy is, and has
been to come to some arrangement
with the West Kooteuay company, if
that cun be done on reasonable terms.
Failing that, we must fight for our ex-
istance Contracts already entered
into will probably be sufficient to enable us to pay our operuting expenses
for some years. The Cascade Power
and Light csmpany was at the end of
August—the largest accounts to hand
are to that date—well supplied with
funds for all current purposes, including the erection of pole lines and substations for the purposes of a fresh
contract recently obtained. If then
we arc obliged to fight and tho West
Kootenay company succeeds in taking
up their provisional contracts with
our customers, wo shall have avail-
Jilo margin of power, which can, if
necessary, bj offered at a very sniull
rate and, in any event, our existence
in the field will he a very material
fuctor in influencing rates in the district. We have every confidence in
Mr. Anderson, our manager at Cascade, and our plant has already proved itself most efficient under his
charge. That practically sums up
the situation, and unless any share-
holdei   present desires   to   ask   any
A real estate deal of considerable
importance was negotiated this week
by McCallum & McCallum, 276 acres
ofthe Wasson estate, situated one
and one-half miles south of the city,
across the Kettle river, being transferred to C. Scott Galloway, oi
Greenwood. The consideration for
land, stock and implements was
$15,000. Mr. Galloway will take
possession of his property immediately. It is understood that he will
plant an orchard of over 100 acres
next spring.

Truly Wonderful
It has been said that the human
hand is the most perfect tool ever
created. There is indeed no limit,
apparently, to its performance; it
guides the pen and the plow; moves
the lever thut controls the greutost
battleships, with the lightest touch
shapes the lens that makes visible the
otherwise unknown states of infinite
.ce. It grasps alike the implements
of rough labor, the urtist's brush, the
surgeon's knife und the delicate engraver's tools, yet in all its employment there is none that shows its adaptability so vividly as the wonderful
palming feats of McEwen, the great.
With his hand he palms ut one
time four English billiard balls.
Holding his hand in plain sight he
shows you between his fingers one,
two, three, four billiard balls at one
time, making them appear and disappear at will. Hermunn did this trick
with three, but McEwen outranks
Herman in this, us he docs in inuiiy
of his newer tricks and illusions.
Whilo the lato Hermann was the
greatest of his particular stylo of entertainers, McEwen combines his wonderful control of hypnotic forces with
his supernatural ability of mind reading and (*;ives a performance unequalled on the world's stage. It is beyond tbe power of human endurance
for one man to fill an entire evening
under the tremendous strain that Mc-
Ewen works, so he is assisted by u
company of high class vuudeville performers, besides being equipped with
ull new and special scenery. This
talented organization comes to Grand
Forks for two nights, beginning December 14.

strike is over, the operators and employees having come to terms on Monday afternoon', and the men are now

March, when it wns called by Mr.
Sherman, consequent upon the company lefusing to corioede certain terms
which included such increase in wages
as would make n minimum sealc rate
of %S for an eight-hour day and the
recognition of the union, together
with the check system, whereby the
company would collect the union dues
from the men's wages and hand them
over to the union. Being denied
these demands the union men struck
and the mine has since heen partially
operated by non-union labor. The
successful negotiations which terminated the strike were inaugurated by
Mr. Mackenzie King, deputy minister
of labor at Ottawa. The coinpany
agreed to make an increase in wages,
which will work out at ten per cent.
They, however, refused to recognize
the union to the extent of making the
mine a closed mine, but said they
would be willing to meet officers of
the union to diseuss questions in
which members of the union employed
in the mine were interested. The
eight-hour day was not agreed to, as
it was understood that the legislature
would pass at the forthcoming session
an act, limiting the hour8 of employment in coal mines to eight hours a
day.

"Out in Idaho" drew a small

Mr.  C.  S.   Baker, thc  provincial
assayer was treated to quite a   surprise last Monday.    A piece of ore
one inch  in diameter was brought
him for analysis from A. J. Stendel
and Joe Wald's property, siuate live'
miles south of Danville, on the Great
Northern railway.   On assaying the
specimen  it   gave   the  unheard-of i
r'turns of 90 per cent zinc.    This)
was almost too good to believe,   und j
Mr. Baker kept the result of his discovery to himself until he had made
a personal inspection of the property.
This   preoaution   was taken, he explained,   to  guard   against    being
"jobbed."
On Wednesday Mr. Baker visited
the property. While no more ore of
a similar character had been found,
he expresses the opinion that the
sample assayed was undoubtedly
genuine. The ore was taken from
a 100-foot tunnel, being found in a
black graphitic schist formation.
Mr. Boker is doubtful whether to
call the specimen assayed native
zinc or not; because ore of that character has never been discovered up to
the present time, and no one knows
what it is. Finds of that kind have
been reported from Australia, but
they have never been verified.
If any more ore of the kind assayed is fonnd, it will be particularly valuable for exhibition purposes.

SIGN   OF   THE   BEST
A thousand dollars is no object to
the average man in the Boundary—
and Cedio pursues the hand-out
route.
Almost every town is burdened
with a few individuals who have
full working cards in the'knockers'
union.
Most of the shade of the old apple tree having been used in the
manufacture of cider this fall accounts for its rich dark color.
No one can question the potency
of the persuasive voice and the hypnotic eye. Their power has jolted
many a man out of the peace of single blessedness.
Tbe hypnotist advertised for this
city is not the only one. Men are
being hypnotised by the fair sex of
the Boundary right along. And
magic? Aren't we making money
disappear every day?

According to the Pall Mall Gazette,
a gold discovery was mude during the
past summer about 200 miles from
London. Hitherto the secret has
been very closely guarded. A report
made by engineers declares that the
ore vein extends from eight to* ton
miles, with u width of from six to fifteen feet. The engineeis have no
doubt tlmt it is of great depth. The
ore is identical with that found in the
main vein of the Rand. The report
goes on tn say: "The mine should be
quite as good as the best belonging to
the companies operating on the main
reef of the Hand. The ore average*
80 grains to the ton. A syndicate
has been formed, with a capital of
8245,000, to work the find."
BOUNDARY   ORE   SHIPMENTS
W. J. Brandrith, Secretary of the
British Columbia Fruit Growers' As-
>ociaton,hasmade the following statement at New Westminster: At a
meeting of the fruit growers representing every section of British Columbia,, held in Vancouver recently,
it was decided to announce that owing to the increased cost of production, the prices of fruit will be considerably advanced next season." Mr.
Brandrith added that labor had increased fully one-third during the
past year, and that the pi ospects for
a farther increase were many, while
for fruit boxes the price had also risen
fully one-third, owing to the high prices established for lumber. The increased price for lumber has affected
the cost of berry baskets, crates, apple and pear boxes, and, in fact, all
kinds of wooden fruit cases. Anothei
item against the grower is the recent
increase in express charges.
