Greenwood papers. tell of an iniport-  anb mining deal in which the -Leroi  mineral claim owned by Jim Copland,  one of the oldest i:>lacer miners in the  district, is bonded to a- syndicate of  Phoenix and Spokane capitalists.  The Leroi is on the new wagon road  between McKinney and Rock Mountain. It was in 1S96 that Billy Youri-  Iciii and Jim Copland staked the War  Eagle and Leroi. A great deal of development work was done, but until  L. W. Shatford had the wagon road  completed last year the property was  inaccessible. The claims are of great  merit and this deal will give to Similkameen riding another working property over in the Kettle River end.  Speaking of the deal the Ledge says :  "The price named in the bond is $30-  000, final payment to be made in two  years. The purchasers are Nicholas  S. Baillie, John D. McKay and Daniel  Paterson, said to represent a Phoenix  and Spokane syndicate. One hundred  dollars is to be paid per month, the  purchasers to do continuous work and  the final payment to be made in two  years. Twenty tons of ore are to be  allowed each three months for smelter  test, work will be commenced at once.  OREGON TUNNEL GOING IN  The visit to Copper Mountain, a few  days ago, of Mr. Thomas of the Dominion Copper Company, operating in the  Boundary, has re-awakened interest  in -that locality.  Late last fall, the Dominion Copper  Company began.negobiotions with Mr.  Eniil F. Voigb for tlie purchase of a"  group,  and this spring they are starting in to size up the  situation and to  make plans for the future.  Shortly after the visit of Mr. Thomas to Voigt's  Camp,  Mr. E. F. Voigb went through  Hediey en route for the coast, and was  seen by a. representative'of the Gazette  to  whom he conversed  frankly and  openly concerning the  properties in  which he has  been  interested for so  many years and on which he has done  so much development.    So much mystery and esotei-ie nonsense has attended inining operations in the Similkameen that ib is refreshing to  meet a  mining operator who can lay aside the  veil of mystery and talk freely about  matters that are of so vital importance  to us all;    and   finding   this in Mr.  Voigt's case, the Gazette made enquiries sufficiently  pointed  to  bring out  with considerable detail the most important points of the situation.  Big ore bodies are the rule in Voigt's  Camp, and as is usual in such cases  the values are not sufficiently high  above the payable line, to permit working in other than on the large scale-  employed in low grade camps.  Geologically,    the   situation   seems  tied, and there were labor troubles  looming up > in the. Boundary. These  uncertainties and the delay in railway  construction into the district were  also bound to have an influence.  OTHER   PROPERTIES.  In Combination Camp, which lies  about 5 miles south of Voigt's Camp,  James E. McCau ley was getting from'  Bert Bryant and associates, a working  bond on the Reco, on which there are  good showings. The geological.situation is unich the same as in .Voigt's:  Camp, and values of $20 in gold and  ISA- % copper have been obtained..' -Mi%  McCauley is representing Spokane  capitalists and expects to begin work  in about 30days.  The Copper Mountain Mining Co.,  a syndicate of wealthy Missoiirians,  owns 23 claims about two. miles northeast of Voigt's Camp and are making  preparations for active miuing operations. They have a first class property, upon which considerable development has been done. Tlie company  has a well-filled treasury, which will  enable them to get ready to supply  their share to the������������������ railway tonnage.  Had more satisfactory progress been  made in railway building, these properties would now be working.  On bhe United Empire group, W. C.  BRIDGE COMES  JO GRIEF  V.

In that camp he made a fine mining property out of the Copper World  Extension, and hence. Loomisites are  interested in all his movements.    Concerning the Oregon  the Loomis Prospector says:���������"Henry Bahrs was a visitor in town last Thursday and Friday.  Recently he bonded a copper property  on Sixteen Mile creek, in  close proximity to the railroad, not far from Hediey. and he came in  from  that  place.  The mineral is in the same character  of formation1 as that of the rich and  famous Nickel Plate mine at Hediey,  and promises to  make a property of  equal value to that of its dividend paying neighbor.    From the very  surface  the ore  on the   Bahrs'   claims  assays  from $00 to $80 in copper and arsenical iron, and there are large bodies of  it.    A force of men is at work running  a tunnel which will open up the ore at  considerable depth.    Mr. Bahrs  is on  his way east to interest capital  in this  attractive proposition.  ideal. The ore bodies were originally  the country rock but are cut up with a  series of eruptive dykes of porphyry,  from 70 to 150 feet in widbn and running north and south, about 15 degrees  west and dipping from 10 to 15 degrees  to the east. The eastern contact with  the porphyry forms the hanging wall.  The mineralized, zone is traceable for  about two and a half miles, and varies  in character from footwall to hanging  wall. On the footwall the gangne,  ���������which is of diorite and some magnetite,  carries its best copper values in chal-  copyribe, some of which goes as high  as 20 to 30 % copper. Nearer the centre of the ore body there is more iron  oxide, both magnetite and hematite  being in evidence and giving from 40  to 50 % iron and 5 to 50 % sulphur.  Here  the  best gold values are found,  It is announced in Montreal that  while Premier McBride was there he  arranged matters in dispute between  the (Jr. T. P. and the British Columbia  government over Prince Rupert and  Kaien and Digby islands, details to be  arranged on his return from Europe.  The. railway company was advised it  might win the contest in the courts  over the claim of the province to reversionary rights in the Indian lands  occupied by the railway, but is desirous of avoiding a long drawn out con-  The long-feared event has happened  and the. Similkameen " in spate" has  shown that it is a force to be reckoned  with, for on Thursday morning of last  week after a rise of about three feet  within-a few hours, huge trees, with  tops and roots extended, raking a wide  watery swath and driven by a nine or  ten mile current, wiped outlive bents  of the falsework, bowling over the  piles like nine-pins aud leaving a gap  in the structure that stqppo^d all communications to and ' fro across the  stream.  Rumors' Avere flying about that two  different, breaches were made in the .  structure, and that the pile-driver and  engine were standing on a piece of the  bridge that was intact,. but the yarn  looked too improbable/to warrant credence, and������������������ proved to be altogether unfounded. The circumstance that had  probably given rise to the rumor was  the disaster which befel another bridge  farther down over a creek that runs  into the Similkameen from Palmer  lake. This bridge also received an onslaught from a jam of driftwood, and  came to grief.  flict. The terms agreed to are Avhen  the company settles with the Indians  the province will invest title to pro-  perb3r in bhe railway on the same con-  dibions as governed the sale of 10,000  acres on Kaien island, sold to the railway by the province, that a quarter of  all lands townsited slm.ll revert to the  provincial government, choice of land  to be made by the provincial authorities in the usual manner aft'ecfing such  reversions.

Kates Moderate.  A. Uaknes, Prop.  Penticton, B.C.  The Midway Star in referring to the  crowded condition of Great Northern  trains going out of Midway is constrained to wonder where all the people, are. coming from and where they  are going. With its trains no nearer  the middle of the Similkameen than  Oroville, the Gt. Northern is already  realizing that it has tapped a section  of the country that can yield traffic  some of this rock giving from 4 to $12  in gold and 3 to 6 % copper. Towards  the. hanging wall the rock turns into  felsite with considerable calc. spar, the  generous supply of iron and lime making it an ideal smelting ore. The copper values lessen to about 1-A to 3 %  towards the hanging wall. The copper in evidence, besides chalcopyrite,  shows the red oxide and the blue and  green carbonates.  The group upon which the most  work has been done is the R.S.-Frisco,  upon which is a 2S0 foot ei-oss-cut tunnel all in ore, and in the bottom of this  tunnel shafts have been sunk Avith  excellent results.  The group upon Avhieh the Dominion  Copper Co. have taken the bond is the  No. 14 group of four claims, comprising  the 11, 14, 33 and 37 mineral claims,  and having an area of about 150 acres  with four strong veins from 200 to 350  feet in width. There are on the property, three shafts, 00,35 and 20 feet,  all in ore. On the No. 14 the ore is  heavily mineralized Avith iron, the percentage reaching 30, and copper values  are satisfactory.  While it is expected that the Dominion Copper Company will soon begin  development of their properties in  Voigt's Camp, Mr. Voigt made no definite statement concerning their intention. When Mr. Thomas was over  the coal stiike had not then been set-  In the death of Henry A. Shatford,  of Hubbards, the county of Halifax  has lost one of its best citizens. Three  years ago he Avas stricken Avith apoplexy, and although he rallied, yet he  never fully regained his health. About  two weeks ago he suffered another  attack, and it A\ras evident to his  friends that he could not recover. His  four sons Avere summoned to his bedside, and on Friday last he passed  away.  The funeral   Avhieh   took place   on  Monday, was conducted by  the Rev.  Mr. Foster,   the resident   clergyman,  and Avas attended by a large number  of people, including not only those residing at Hubbards, but also the surrounding districts and  Halifax,   testifying to the esteem in  Avhieh  he  avus  held.    Of a.    retiring    nature,  yet   to  those  Avho   knew   him   best,   he   Avas  known   as    a faithful  friend,  as  one  Avhose Avord awis as good as  his  bond,  ever ready to   relieve   the   distressed.  Many  have  cause to  remember him  for the kindness which be displayed  so unostentatiously, and of Avhieh the  Avorld knoAVs nothing.    He leaves to  mourn him his AvidoAv and four sons,  avIio are all resident in British Columbia and engaged   in   successful enterprises there, one of Avhom, Lytton,  is  a. member   of   the   British   Columbia  legislature.

The pile-driver, Avhieh had been in  use for all the trestles and bridges, had  been lefb on the Keremeos side of the  mrer Avhen all the piles Avere driven on  the Armstrong bridge, and is still on  this side of the river.  It was reported at OroA'ille that all  Avork had been called off until after  liigh water, and a message to that effect came to Hediey from an outbound  passenger at Oroville, but it has been  heard since that repair gangs are already at Avork on the lower bridge,  Avhere a pile-dri\Ter had .been improvised that Avas being operated by horse  power.

During the  last two years it Avould most likely  have stood the strain, but the sudden  rise this time and the three years' accumulation of driftwood Avas eA'idently  too much.

Sir    Wilfrid  Laurier  at the conference  of provincial premiers in Ottawa last fall, came  up m tlie House of Commons,   British  Columbia   had  not among  her seven  representatives   a single voice to protest against the allotment  of $100000  per year for ten years as settlement in  full of  her claim against the- Federal  Government.     It remained for North-  rup of Ontario and Bourassa of Quebec to champion the. cause, of this province and to declare that the arbitration asked for by Premier McBride at  the conference was the only just and  equitable, treatment that was due this  pro\'ince, and that until such arbitration was held to go into the case  so as  to deal Avith it on its merits and bring  in a-finding, no member of the House  of Commons Avas in a  proper position  to vote on   the   question   they   were  being asked to vote on.

The   New  Westminster Columbian  regards Sir Frederick Borden  an impossibility   as   a   successor   to   Lord  Strathconain the High Commissioner-  ship.    Among the. reasons ''given there  is cited his last official act in  retiring  Lord Ayhner without other cause than  to ben el it financially a favorite of the  administration not physically capa.ble  of assuming the duties of the. office to  which he Avas 'promoted.    Another  is  that  the British people, will not soon  ���������forget his treatment of Lord Dundon-  ald, bv conniving with a. colleague  in  the  insult offered  to that gallant soldier, for Lord  Dundonald stood high  in the favor of the British people, Avho  remember his exploits in  the  Soudan  and at the  relief of Ladysmith.

Bnllock-  Wcbsti-r   and   the   good    reputation  which he says Ifedley   bears   in  ling-  land, should give  occasion for serious  thought on the.  part of our  citizens.  Such a reputation is a most  A-aluable  asset and one Avhieh Ave would do Avell  to guard most carefully.     Of Hediey  town  property some   of the  earliest  sales were made to  English   investors  and all of those have seen   their holdings increase in value several hundred  per   cent a.bovc   the   purchase  price.  Fortunately  for  them  the lots Avere  well selected and they drew no blanks,  but it does not folloAv that all propery  in JTedleA'   or   vicinity   regardless   of  location   Avould  make  the  same gilt-  edged  investment.     There are creek  bottom lots and cliff-face lots  and the  buyer avIio might make his choice from  a map a.nd get saddled  with one of  these would find  himself  out  of luck  so far as realizing  on his  investment  is concerned.

About and immediately after May  18 the cool wave, Avhieh Avill be almost  if not quite a cold wave, will be in the  northeastern states and eastern provinces and following it Ave may expect  old Avinter to disappear. About May  21 the unseasonably cold weather Avill  begin to disappear west of meridian 90  and better cropAveather Avill prevail.  June Avill be as hot as April was cold.  Don't forget that I gave almost perfect forecasts for April, particularly  as to its very unusually low temperatures. I believe that my forecasts of  an unusually hot June Avill prove to be  equally correct.  Notice of Forfeiture  To IT. AV.

WORK ON THE  STEMWINDER  Report of Progress by President Russell  "   to Shareholders.  Since Ave sent you a- report a couple  of months ago. there is nothing to  mention except the amount of Avork  we have done, which has been \rery  considerable.  We found that it Avas advisable both  for economy and speed  to first raise  the new shaft  to  the surface   before  sinking the additional distance required,   as  it Avi.ll be easier to get the rock  out of the new .shaft than the old one.'  In   the  past   two  months   we have  done the follmving development woi;k:  Raised from the BOO foot level to within 20 feet of the first level, a shaft 0 ft.  by 4A-ft. within   the timbers  (double,  compartment),    and    completed   the  timbering for this distance���������ISO feet.  Crosscut from the old   workings  to  .   the new shaft at the 200 foot  level���������a-  distance  of 00 feet.    Crosscut on the  surface at'the side of the mill,   to connect with tlie shaft at first level, a distance of 75 feet,   size S ft. by b" ft. diminishing  to   7 ft.  by ;j ft.   Avithin   the  timbers. " This makes 315 feet of large  tunnels   and   shafting    completed   in  about  two -months,   Avhieh  is   record  time for  this  district if not for any  part of the country. ���������  We are now completing the raise,  and Avill connect with the last mentioned tunnel, within a. Aveek. it Avill  take about three weeks to raise tlie  further distance, of 50 feet to the stir- J  " face at the higher ground at the back  of the mill and get the temporary gallows frame erected for hoisting Avhile  sinking the shaft, Avhieh Avill be continued immediately.  AVe expect to sink at the rate of 100  feet per month, and after the crosscuts  to the ore on different, hcav levels are  made, we shall be in a position to extract ore with great economy through  the neAV shaft, which is at the left  hand side of the upper(part of the mill.  We are hoav driving all the machinery  by Avater'power and saving about $600  a month in steam costs.  The outlook in eA'ery respect is still  exceedingly promising.  Rtchard Russell, President.

(Loomis Prospector.)  H. Stevenson, of Spokane, Avho bonded a group of claims from J.M. Pitman  and Charlie Jordan  last fall,  situated  near Keremeos, in  British Columbia..  spent two or three days in   Loomis  during the past week.    Mr. Stevenson  has put in most of the Avinter on the  property, the development of which he  has charge of, and is very Avell satisfied  with the showing  that has followed  the Avork performed.    He is iioaa'  engaged in driving a  tunnel which will  intersect the strong ore body in 400 ft.  at a vertical  depth  of 275 feet.    Mr.  Stevenson has seen no reason to change  bis views of this country, as expressed  to the  writer nearly tAvo  years  ago.  Indeed,  as he  becomes more familiar  Avith the conditions,   his confidence in  this  section  being a large and  important contributor to the mineral output  of the  coast,   grows  stronger.     It is  cheering to hear such testimony from  a  man  possessing so  large a fund of  information upon the subject of mines  and minerals,   and who has gathered  that information  through  the experience that conies Avith the hard knocks  of actual prospecting and mining. Mr.  Stevenson has no personal reasons for  reporting faA'orably upon this country,  hence his  opinion   may  be  taken   as  coming from  a  man   unbiased or unprejudiced  for or against  the district  upon which he passes judgment.     Mr.  Stevenson's  visit to  the camp at this  time  Avas  merely as a, change  in   the  monotony of the work he has in hand,  and for the purpose  of renewing  acquaintance Avith  those he met here on  former visits.    Being a companionable  gentleman  and a prince of entertainers,  it is  not  a hard guess to hazard  the statement that be enjoyed his brief  stay   here,   which  Avas   certainly  enjoyed by those whom he met.

Stomach, Heart or Kidneys, are  merely symptoms of a deeper ailment.  Don't make the couinpi error of  treating symptoms only.' Symptom  treatment is treating the RESULT of  your ailment, and not the cause.  Weak stomach nerves���������inside, nerves  ���������means Stomach Avcakness, ahvays.  And the Heart and Kidneys, as well,  have their controlling or inside.-nerves.  Weaken these nerves, and you inevitably have weak vitsi-l organs. Here is  where. Dr. Shoop's Restorative has  made its fame. No other remedy even  claims to treat the " inside nerves."  Also for bloating, biliousness, bad  breath or complexion, use Dr. Shoop's  Restorative.
