Condensed  After a description of development  work on the Carnii, in which it is shown  that 885 tons of ore shipped to Greenwood smelter realized a profit of $10.00  per ton above all expenses, including  that of being hauled over 50 miles; and  of recovering $1500 jn gold on the  plates in a run of 100 tons, besides sav-  ing',40 tons af concentrates assaying  $00 per ton, the article says :  While in   course of time and with  further development, some of the iess-  knowri camps on the West Fork may  come into prominent notice,  it must  be generally admitted that at present  Wallace mountain is the banner camp  of the district, both in  regard  to the.  number and grade of gold and silver-  bearing leads:   The  mountain is near  the junction of Beaver creek with the  West Fork,  on the east side of the  river,  and until recently  was reached  by a three-mile trail from Beaverde.ll,  at which are the only post office in the  district, a general store   well stocked  with prospectors' supplies, two hotels,  a blacksmith shop and a livery stable.  Within   the   last   few    weeks    the  owners of the Sally mine have built a  wagon road from their property to the  main wagon road at Buaverdell.    Like  many others of the high-grade mines  showing lip so well  in  the Boundary  district, the Sally  belongs  to a  local  company.   This one is known  as the  Vancouver & Boundary Creek Mining  <& Development Co.    Among its  principal,   shareholders ^are    Christopher  Wood, Hugh Wood,  Robt. Wood,  C.  Vacher and A. H. Wade.    The- development of the. Sally to its present satisfactory condition is generally credited  to   Mr. Vacher,  the   .superintendent,  who, owing to the  disturbances  that  have occurred since the forming of the  veins, has had much trouble, in following the ore.    The. faults  vary from a  foot or two to 40 and 50  feet,   but as  depth   is   attained   they   become  less  frequent, and it is   hoped will, eventually disappear.    17 the ore faulted but  the one way the'problem of tracing it  would be simplified, but with slips to  both north and south it can be  understood that the initial stages of development h:'.ve been  attended  with  great  difficulties.    By studying   the ground  carefully., however,   and   noting   the  grooves along the. slip and  the "drag"  left' by the ore   when   moving,    Mr.  Vacher seems able to tell   almost the  exact location of the vein and to follow  it with  the  slightest  possible  loss  of  time and labor.  The Sally group was located in 'ISO?'  by Felloe, anil Stewart, who sold to j  the present owner.-:. No less than 9 or ���������  10 distinct leads are found on the group '  varying in width from 10 or 12 in. up !  to 4 ai.d 5 ft., and carrying high silver j  values wherever prospected at depth. ;'  The silver occurs in a. variety of forms j  and is associated in I lie quart'/ with i  iron pyrites and blende.

Repairing Bridges & Cribbing Creek.  JAPAN SEIZES  SAKHALIEN  &   ^v^v^   j^m^w.-,   Under  Protection of Powerful  Strong Force Lands  action of Pow  Naval Convov  Tlie Board of Trade met in the school  house on Monday evening last, and  while the attendance was.not up to the  average of past meetings there were  several over the number for a quorum  and a profitable meeting was held.  hi the absence of the president, the  vice-president, Mr. J. D. Brass, occupied the chair.  Mr. L. G. MaeHafrie was elected a  member "of the Board by the unanimous vote of the members.  Mr. Worgan made inquiries as to  what steps, if any, had been taken in  the matter of nominating candidates  as fire wardens. The secretary explained that the nomination and election of fire wardens was to take place  next da j' at 10 o'clock.  Mi-. Oliver inquired what had been  done in reference to cribbing the cre.ek  and having the bridges removed. \  He was informed by the chairman  that the. road 'supervisor had been instructed by the department to make  an examination,' and did so, and that  he said he would wait until' fht,. water  went down before makingany changes.  Moved, by C. E. Oliver, seconded by  A.D. Worgan, that, Twenty-mile creek  now being low, the member be asked  to again draw the attention of the department to the cribbing of said creek  and the repairing1 or renewing of the  two bridges on the wagon road over  said creek, which are. at present dangerous.    Carried.  The chairman suggested the advisability, of having a circular prepared to  send to non-resident owners of lots,  pointing out the necessity of street  improvement, and the desirability of  effecting the same without incurring  the cost which would result from incorporating the town prematurely. To  this end he suggested asking them' to  put up $10 per lot, and residents would  do the same. This would raise sufficient money to put Scott" avenue in  good shape.  G. H. Sproule said that a matter  wmch concerned the people more  deeply was that of fire protection and  tlie procuring of hose and other appliances. Several months ago a sub-  scribtion for hydrants had been taken  up and money collected and so far as  the people knew, the hydrants were  still in the hands of the manufacturers  while the town might burned down at  any time.  This raised the question as to what  had been done when a committee was  appointed at the. April meeting. Members of the committee drew attention  to the report which- they had made at  tl.e meeting in May.  Moved by Geo. H. Sproule, seconded  by F. Fraser, that a public meeting lie  held on Monday evening. 17th inst., to  discuss the matter of lire protection  and take steps to obtain hose and other  'appliances.  The. powers of fire- wardens canie in  in for consideration. The chairman  thought that they could enforce the  requirement that every houseliolder  should keep on hand a barrel filled  with water.  It was decided also that a, letter received from Duncan Ross  with   refer- j  ence   to   business   arising  out  of the!  public    meeting    held  on  June  18th, !  should come up at the public meeting,   j  PIRATE BATTLE-SHIP SURREXDEES  Black Sea Ports Safe Again.- Seizure  of Sakhalien Shows Japan's Hand  in Peace Terms.  The Sakhalien Islands, out of which  'Japan was bullied years ago by Russia,  has been re-taken. On July 7th a,  strong force of Japanese were landed  under protection of naval force consisting of 2 battleships, 7 cruisers, 3  gun boats, 30 torpedo boats 'and ten  transports. The Commander of the  Russian detachment ordered the coast -  defence guns to be blown up and government buildings burned before retiring.  POTKMKIN1S  SUUItKXDEHS.  The mutineers holding the battleship  Ivniaz Potemkine surrendered to the  Roumanian authorities, who refused  to allow them to take off the ship's  treasures. .  Since then the Russian Admiral of  the Black Sea fleet has become brave  again and talks vengeance. The Roumanian flag and flag of St. Andrews  floats over the battleship.  Quiet ix Manchuria.  With the exception of an occasional  reconnaisance in force, there is little  military activity, in Manchuria. It is  understood that Japan will not agree  to an armistice until a  basis of peace  terms is accepted by Russia.  FIRE WARDENS   ELECTED  Statutes  De-  Their  Powers  Under the  fined.

Lambly appointed Constable Haynes  to bold, the .election required by the  act. The meeting was accordingly held  on Tuesday, 11th inst.. when Messrs.  (x. H. Sproule, F. D. Boeing and W.A.

Worgan. but insisted  upon having his name withdrawn, and  there being but three nominations before the meeting when the hour for  receiving them had closed, Constable  Haynes declared.these three elected.  The importance of the position which  they hold and the responsibilities resting on them may be seen by the following sections of the act :  (8) The firewardens, or a majority of  them, shall have the following [lowers:  (a) To visit and inspect, at all reasonable hours, all buildings", in the town  or its vicinity.

Miss Huberts who has been visit-higher niece, Mrs J. M. Wright at Princeton returned last week to Hedley and  is stopping with her nephew Dr. Whil-  lans.    ' Miss Lowndes has been under the  weather for several days. She was  overcome, by the heat.on the trip back  from Keremeos on Saturday last, but  is now  improving.  Rev. A. J. Fowlie was down from  Princeton last week when a meeting  of the local Presbyterians was held,  it is expected that Mr. Fowlie will  henceforth hold service here fortnightly.  Geo. Bowerman was down on Kru-  ger mountain last week and returned  home, on Friday night, tie reports  active, development work in progress  on claims bonded by the Gvanby company. " /  The Midway and Vernon Ry. matter  is showing signs of renewed life.  New Yorkers are said to have obtained the. charter and a report was current in Greenwood last week that engineers were to commence at once the  work of laying out the route between  Midway and Rock Creek.  Dr. Newcombe. of Ferguson, B. C,  was in town this week, coming in on  Royer's stage' fioni Phoenix. The  doctor is an old typo, but gave up the  stick for the medical profession. He  is having a. well earned holiday and  felt that he wouldn't do himself .justice  by going back to work without seeing  the Similkameen.  Government agentHunter of Princeton was in town last week having  returned from Victoria where the official inquiry was held. This inquiry  had been adjourned from Princeton  on the 17th of May to allow witnesses  to be summoned and case adjudicated,  but no one appeared to make' any  charges and the whole thing went by  default. Like Shadrach. Mcshach and  Abednego, he emerged without even  the smell of fire on him.  The first instalment of the extra  mail per week came in on, Thursday  evening last. To show how badly it  was needed a little analysis of the two  mails will not come amiss.. Taking-  all the letters for the/ Gazette  office for the two mails, Thursday and  Saturday, it is found that 80 per cent  came in by Thursday's mail. Thus, if  no mail had been brought in on Thursday this,90per cent would have lain at  Penticton until Saturday.  Real Estate Deal.���������There has  been some business doing in real estate  on the east side of the creek,. Recently an understaning was arrived at  among the owners, Messrs 0. E, Thomas of Princeton and L. O. Hedlund  and .T. Greenhill of Hedley, to divide  up their holdings and leave each free  to dispose of his own. Last week  Gillespie and lb-islam effected the sale  of some thirty odd lots of L. O. Mcd-  luud's portion to ,7. Myerhoff for a fair  consideration.  It is stated that Fred Billings, barrister of Vernon, is slated i'or County  Court Judge. The appointment would  give general satisfaction, for if there  is any legal practitioner in the interior  of tlie province who would combine  good sound judgment with a thorough  I knowledge, of the law, it is Mr. Billings. There is perhaps one section of  the population who from selfish motives would prefer to see him remain  as he is and that is the large number  of clients who have banked on his legal advice ever since he came to the.  district some thirteen years ago, and'  who if he were elected to the bench,  would have to seek new counsel.  is.    opening  this week.  W. C. McLean of Ashuola and lawyer Riown of Princeton were in town,  last week.  F.A. Schubert, St-., went out to Penticton'on'Friday hist, accompanied by-  Miss Schubert and Bert.  The Hedley Lumber Company's  drive is'coming on satisfactorily. The  whole drive is- below Bromley's.  John Love went to Penticton on  Monday. He expects to take in Fair-'.  view before returning.  Tlie dry weather of the past week,  showed a very marked effect on the  water in Twenty-mile creek.  The first genuine hot spell came  along last week and has been very-  much in .evidence for several days.  Dr. McEwen has moved into his new  house on Kingston Ave. jit is reached  by turning oil" Scott avenue at the  Gazette office.  Mr. and Mrs. Garrison are leaving  Hedley. and will take,up their abode  in "Washington state. Mrs. Garrison  ���������left yesterday morning.  There has been a very marked improvement in the electric light service  since, the new wire wasjput in and the  transformer placed at the Hotel Similkameen.  Everybody who is interested in the  safety and progress of the town should  show his interest by putting in an appearance at the public meeting on  Monday evening next.  Finlay Fraser's new building on  Scott avenue is coming along in good  form these days. The building is 00 x  25 with good high ceilings both upstairs and down.' As Hedley is at the  present time withou t a public hall  the provision being made by Mr.  Eraser to supply the want will be duly  appreciated.'  , In another column will he found the  ad. of the. Canadian Bank of- Commerce with particular reference to its  Penticton branch which was opened j  there a month ago in charge of J. M.  .Christie. The Canadian Bank of Commerce has been making giant strides  towards front place among Canadian  banking institutions, with total capital  of 98,700,000, rest .$3,500,000 and total  ' resources of $91,000,000.

A. Clark,   of Green  Mountain,  in a  Runaway Accident.  L. A. Chirk of Green Mountain met  with an accident near Vernon last  week and is at present in the hospital  there.- Mrs. Clark has gone to attend  him, and her daughter, Mis. \V. J.  Forbes of Hedley went to Green Mountain on receipt of the news. The Oka-  nagau thus describes the accident:  L. A. (/lark, accompanied by six  other men, while driving in.a rig above  Coldstream ranch last week had a narrow escape from being killed in a runaway, the cause was a dog running  out and frightening the horses, which  started down a steep incline, and upset the rig, hurting everyone but the  driver. 31r. Cummings had three ribs  broken, and Ore. Casey. Dell and  Clark were severely bruised, Mr. Clark  having his back severely sprained.  They were taken to the Vernon hospital Avhere everything- was done for  them in ,the way of medical skill and  nursing, and, we are pleased to state,  are now oh the road to recovery. The.  dog that was the cause of this accident  has a reputation for this kind of work  and we believe has been sent to the  "happy hunting grounds."  "h  4-  W. T.

The. following month a second car was shipped to  Trail. This lot weighed 43,12-1 lbs. and  contained 4,778.81 oz. silver and 2,8S6  lbs. lead, together valued at $2,027.-15.  This carload netted $2,318.98 above cost  of railway transportation and treatment. In" April, 1904, a smaller lot,  weighing 32,206 lb. and containing'3,-  175.51 oz. silver and 840 lb. lead, was  shipped, from which the gross amount  realized was* $1,698.64."  At that time there was no wagon  road between the Sally and Beaverdell.  As a consequence no further shipments  were made till the winter of 1004-05.  Last February there was sent to Trail  a carload weighing 41,829. lb. and containing 3,991.07 oz. silver and 2,701 lb.  lead, and having a gross value of $2,-  376.48. ' The fifth car lot shipment was  made in March last, the net weight of  the car being 42.575 lb., containing 4,-  798.20 oz. silver and 3,108 lb. lead, having a gross value of .$2,090.24. This ore  averaged 225.-10 oz. silver to the tpn  and 7.30 per cent. lead. * Tlie railway  and treatment charges on this car  amounted to $311.7(5, leaving $2,378.48,  from which must he deducted the cost  of mining and hauling to the railway,  these latter amounting to between $15  and $20 a ton.  Wlie.i the mine was visited by the  writer there were on hand two cars of  first grade ore, sacked and ready to  ship as soon as the wagon road to  Beaverdell, then under construction,  should be completed. The company  has save'd 175 tons of second grade ore  averaging about $10,��������� which will require  either concentration or more suitable  smelting.facilities than lire- now available. ���������   , -.������������������'.

The Bell has the \ distinction of haying been the first claim  located on Wallace mountain. Assay  values range from $2S to $300 in.gold,  and silver. ... V  East of the Bell are .the Washington'  and Idaho claims, belonging to a stock  company. These were located on twb  parallel leads occurring'in contact with  an eruptive, dyke, the. strike.-of. "which  is north and south.    -    r       - -��������� --<������������������-'  South-east of the Sally, on the Nap-  anee, the owner���������E. G. Gumming���������has  exposed a 5-foot lead of arsenical iron  ore assaying $18 in gold on the surface.  Two shafts have been sunk, one to a  depth of 70 feet and the other 30 feet.  Like those on the Washington and  Idaho this lead has a north and south  strike. . ��������� ������������������  Below the Napanee, on the Black  Diamond, belonging to P. .1. Kennedy  and Jos. Devlin, a 49-ft. shaft has been  sunk, following a small vein for 23 ft.  Four or five leads have been exposed  and some good assays obtained. In the  same neighborhood, the Gold Drop,  owned by T. Murray, has a 2-f t. vein  showing grey copper and galena which  assays as high as $287 to the ton.  Down the hill from the Black Diamond  is the Standard fraction, owned bv W.  H. Rambo and W. J. Nelson. The'lead  on this claim has been prospected with  a 94-ft. tunnel and a number of open  cuts. The ore shows'galena, iron  pyrites and native silver.  On the Rambler, adjoining on the  west, aud belonging to Rambo, Nelson  and Fiuucane, a shaft has been sunk  So ft., from which,a drift has been run  100 feet to the. south to catch the vein  where it has faulted. A car of ore. was  shipped from this property last Febru- .  ary. the gross value, mainly in silver,  amounting to $73.35 a. ton. This ore  was not well sorted, much second grade  ore having been included in the .shipment. Considerable native silver was  observed in the Rambler ore.  On the Bounty, owned by the Stratford Mining Co., a 90-ft. shaft has been  sunk and 100 feet of tunneling done.  Haifa car of ore was shipped from  this claim last March: returns from  this were not available.  Three miles above Beaverdell, in  what is known as Currie's camp, a  number of locations have been made,  some of which give considerable promise. Tlie best known of these is the  Iron Morse, belonging to .J. A. Tu/.o,  Robert Wood, T. Cnrrie and Ah Ling.  On this claim a 5-ft. vein has been  traced on the surface.1 for '10I.J feet or  more. This carries .������������������.rsenical iron, pyr-  rhotite and iron pyrites, giving assay  returns of from $100 to $-15 in gold with  value of (he  a few ounces of silver, tin  ore running close to $20 a  The (.'onistock, near  by  the same parties, carries galena  ing 50 oz. silver and $1.10  on.  owned   by  a.ssa.v-  u gold.  The  lerd varies from a few inches to three  feet in width and has been developed  by 150 feet of tunneling ami 70 feet of  sinking. On the Conistock No. 2 a 3-ft.  vein of pyrrhutile, assaying $S in gold,  has been discovered.  Across Beaver creek, and about a-  mile and a half up. is the King Solomon, belonging to J.
