Copper Co. and the Greenwood Miners  Union. It is a sliding scale dependent upon the price of copper.  When copper is selling below 16  cents a pound the scale will be  paid that existed up to the~end of  July, with the exception of the  $2.50 men at the smelter, and  there wages in future will never be  lower than $2.75. This month the  lowest wages at the smelter is $3 a  day. When copper is between 16  and IS cents all men above and  below ground at the Lone Star and  Mother Lode mines and Greenwood  smelter will get an advance of 25  cents a day over the low scale.  When copper is IS cents or more  the wages will again be raised 25  cents all round.  SHUSWAP COPPER  90 days.  A deal has recently been concluded whereby the English syndicate that owns and operates the  Le ~Roi No 2 and the Van-Roi  mines at Rossland has acquired for  the sum of $200,000 extensive deposits of copper on the north fork  of Seymour river, 20 miles from  the Seymour Arm of Shuswap  Lake. '  The purchasers will proceed at  onco to spend $500,000 in developing tho property. A concentrator  will bo erected and the concentrate  conveyed by aerial tramway to  Seymour Arm where it will be  shipped to railway by water.  The seam is from 40 to 300 feet  wide and extends for a distance of  13,500 feet. It will average 5 per  cent copper, and gold $2.50 per  ton. Large bodies of the ore will  yield as high as SO per cent, of  copper^  Besides this copper seam there is  a eeaui.'of galena from 2 to 11 feet  wide and 0,000 feet long. This  second vein is parallel to tbe first  and a short distanco below it.

Miss  Fleener gives promise of becoming  one of the greatest singers of the  world.  During tbe past year blind pigs  have been plentiful in and around  Tete Jaune Cache. There has been  considerable crime in that section  and an average of ten men a week  have been sent to the jaii at Kamloops. Thero are only two policemen at the Cache, and they have  little time to sleep.  The steamer Gray recently arrived in Victoria from the north  with over 700 barrels of whale oil,  about 700 sacks of guano, and a  large shipment of gullibone. Included in the cargo were 23 drums  of spermaceti, the most valuable  oil that can be abstracted from the  whale. At present the whaling  business is slack in northern  waters..  Just 20 years ago the writer  dropped into Kaslo and took an  assay of the city. George Bart-  lett was running the Can-Can  restaurant, and not a saloon in  the camp had a key for the front  door. There were no ranches or  fruit treesv, in sight, and nearly  everybody was talking about a  wagon road to Three Forks and the  great future of the Slocan country.-  Send for a-catalogue-of headstones and monuments/ made-by  the Kootenay Monumental Works,  Nelson, B.

The Queens hotel restaurant is  now in continual operation, day  and night.  It is surprising how cheap mealB  are sold in Phoenix.  A real estate man took in $1,700  in this town last Saturday in payments on outside real estate.  Nearly all other forms of gambling  have been suppressed in this city.  Jim Murdoch has climbed higher  up, and is now sliding schooners  across the top of the bar in the  Dominion.  Pete Turano is in New York.  Next week Tony will meet him in  Spokane. They will both got  married in Spokane, *��������� and upon  their return to Phoenix there will  be a merry time at the Dominion.  It is thought that a new scale  for the Phoenix mines, and the  smelter will be arranged  this week.  Big Andy Johnson has started a  Zoological garden at the Central  hotel. He has two young bears in  a wire fenced corral, and already  they understand some words in  Swedish. Andy expects to teach  them how to dauco. Owing to  their hugging qualities they ought  to shine in a two-step waltz.  D. J. McDonald harvested his  crop of peas last Monday.  The crops in Phoenix are all  looking well this summer.  With Bohuuks galore, and real  estate peddlers in profusion, it is  little wonder that Phoenix has become but a shadow of other days.  ������B������e ;  '.m bSskEBsSEtcS  *    a*t*:""  THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  ____,  USD  THE  LEDGE  Is located at Greenwood, B.

Is Virginia there is a man who  claims to have receiyed a spirit  message from Hell, in which the  sender says that Satan looks like  Napoleon and holds court ih a  building built of rubies that are as  big as bricks. This news is liable  to cause a stampede.  We notice that our old friend  Robert A. Renwick is still mighty  with the pen. We have read his  numerous articles in the Victoria  Week with great interest. They  appear every week, and are entitled, "Cancellation of Reserve."  The Week has made many a dollar  out of Bob's writing.  Waks will cease when the men  who cause them are forced to do  the fighting. In Washington the  other day Senator Cummins made  a country, school-house oration  about war being the final arbiter  over the Panama Canal if diplomacy fails between Great Britain and  the United States. Somebody  should give old man Cummins a  gun and Eend him to the front.  A few days under fire would take  the war squeal out of this old  man's tongue.  Thinking Themes  God is not to be known, but to  be realized. We cannot come to  Him as we come to a tree', we come  to Him as we come to love. He is  a fact, but a spiritual fact, and a  spiritual fact is not to be taken between the lingers of the mind, as  oue takes an event of history or a  phenomenon in physics.  All we can do with a spiritual  truth is to adjust ourselves to it.  We can only agree to it. acknowledge it, and act as though it existed.  In other words God is to be realized, rather than known. There's  a sensible difference. You can tell  a boy. it does not pay to lie nor get  drunk, and then he knows it; but  it is only whon he afterwards,  either by experience or by example,  by suffering the consequences of  his own or another's folly, realizes  the truth, it is only then that he  may be said to Have it; it has become His.  When you tell a child fire burns,  he knows it, when ho gets burnt,  he realizes it.  Truth of the spiritual sort is to  be absorbed by experience. As the  body eats food so the soul swallows  and digests truth. Knowledge is  an apple in the hand; wisdom is an  apple assimilated in the blood.  So we go on, acting as though  God were, assuming God, postulating God, and gradually God  enters into our consciousness, becomes real in ns. Speculating,  reasoning, arguing is but holding  the apple in the hand, turning it  over and over; so we may starve  to death. Acting-as-if-God-were,  on the contrary, is to obtain Him.  This is the meaning of the Sacrament. '-Take, eat, this is my body.  Except ye eat my flesh and drink  my blood ye have no life."���������Dr.  Frank Crane.  advantage to the ships of nations  thab subsidize their ships and..not  reEci've the right to itself to protect American ships of commerce  at Panama in whatever way it  deeped right and wise.  Thc special reply is that Americans consider the canal to be American property on American soil,  and therefore subject to American  legislation. No treaty with a  foreign power has equal force with  the law making power of either of  of the countries making the treaty.  If this country finally should conclude that thc traffic of American  ships carrying American goods  through the canal between the  several coasts of thc United States  constitutes coast-wise and domestic  commerce, congress would possese  tho constitutional right to remit  tolls on Panama or American ships  engaged in this traffic. The treaty  does not affect this right.  The London Mail, if tho canal  wore owned by England, would  perceive the legality and ethics of  remitting tolls on English ships,  treaty or no treaty. It in-ikes a  difference whoso ox is gored.���������Spokane Review.  A  man without ceremony has  uoed of great merit in its place.  The Panama Tempest  The London Mail can not see on  what grounds tho United States  can exempt American ships at the  Panama canal from tolls. It  quotes the Hay-Pauncofote treaty  as agreeing that the canal should  be free to the ships and men-of-  war of all nations, and that there  should be no discrimination "in  respect of conditions, charges of  traffic or otherwise."  The general answer is that the  treaty is to be interpreted in a  natural way. It was but natural  for Secretary Hay to understand  the reference to the ships of all  nations as meaning the ships of all  other nations than those of the  United States. Can it bo supposed  that the United States would grant  the use of the canal, which this  country constructed primarily as a  military work to defend itself, to  German warships on the same  terms as to American warships?  It is equally unlikely and unnatural that thiB country meant to give  Pat Burns  P. Burns, the cattle king, recently visited Victoria, and, in a  chat with.a Colonist reporter, said:  "Your city is going ahead splendidly, and its future seems assured.  Conditions throughout the whole  of the province could not be on  more satisfactory basis. I think  we can look forward to an even  greater prosperity iu all lines of  businees in the future.  "I have recently returned from  the south, and am, therefore, not  in close touch with conditions in  the prairie provinces, but I hear  that the outlook for a bumper crop  is splendid. Yes, times aro good  all Jover Canada, but particularly  so iu the West.  Tt may be added in this connection that the firm of P. Burns  & Co. is today operating eight retail markets in Victoria,x one  wholesale concern and an ice business. Mr. Burns has had a most  interesting career. Born in humble  circumstances in 1S57, near Kirk-  wood, Ont., he, early in life, showed a keen attitude for business, and  he found scope for this when he  went west in 1S79. He commenced  as a rancher on a small scale in  Manitoba, and later embraced the  territories in the field of his operations. Calgary has been the headquarters since 1S90 of the great  business which he has built up all  over Western Canada. His firm  owns iu all ten cattle ranches, -ind  has retail markets in no less than  27 different cities, towns and settlements in tho prairie provinces,  British  Columbia and the Yukon.  tion of the blind man who obstinately refused to be drawn into  argument but just as obstinately  stuck to the one fact that "whereas  I was once   blind,  Victoria Week.  now I see.  Apples for Insomnia  People ought to know that the  very best thing they can do is to  eat apples just before retiring for  tho night. Persons uninitiated in  tho mysteries of the fruit are liable  to throw up their hands in horror  at the visions of dyspepsia which  such a suggestion may summon up,  but no harm can come even to a  delicate system by the eating of  ripe and juicy apples before going  to bed. The' apple, proceeds this  authority, is excellent brain food  because it has more phosphoric  acid in easily digested shape than  any other fruit;.

After describing his party's trip,  Mr. Swannon says: "On our way  down we done quite a bit of exploring and in every instance found  gold and precious stones, such as  rubies, garnets, and we also found  a diamond���������a small one, but big  enough to be certain that it was a  diamond.  ���������'The river bed is rich in gold  and precious stones, .once down to  bed rock.

Christian Science  Whether the proper definition of  Christian  Science is  a religion, a  philosophy or a faith may be a fair  subject of debate; but if thero is  any truth and any appositcness in  the Scriptural  mandate  **by their  fruits ye shall know them,"  then  Chrietian Scientists are entitled to  far������-more credit, and their creed to  far more respect, than they generally receive.'    Tho Week has no intention of becoming involved in a  controversy on this subject,, but in  view of the ignorant attacks which  have   recently been   made   upon  Christian Science,   would venture  to suggest that facts cannot be disproved   by   argument,   and   that  there are more things in heaven  and earth thau there are dreamt of  in tho average man's philosophy.  The    "Week   holds   no   brief  for  Christian Science and has always  being   somewhat  sceptical of its  claims, but it knows enough of its  work to feel convinced thafe_ it deserves credit for many remarkable  cures which cannot be accounted  for on any ordinary grounds, and  which inevitably recall tho declara-  Peculiar and Pertinent  Switzerland is to put the ban on  all artificial wines and cigars, beginning next year.

LOANS TO' FARMERS  Tho .various provincial legislatures aro taking up tho matter of  loans at a low rate of interest to  assist farmers in buying stock ancl  improving their holdings. Tin's is  a matter which might well command the attention of our own  government.  Of all persons in the country engaged in productive enterprises the  farmer is tho worst off when it  comes to raising a loan, and he is  more often than not forced into the  hands of the loan shark. And yet  tho farmers in the present days of  increasing cost of living is the best  bet the country has. He is also  safe. He cannot get away, and if  he does his land is there. Why  then not assist him to bring his  land up to the maximum of productiveness. This "is not a new  policy. It lias been tried in Aus-  tralia and ITew Zealand, and has  worked well. Those governments  find that it pays to put the credit  of the country at the disposal of its  citizens and especially the farmers.  Loans are arranged on a system  by which both principal and interest are taken care of by half-yearly  payments extending over a period  of thirty or forty years. Of course  the borrower can pay iu full at anytime, but there is no reason why he  should. If his money is not worth  more than five per cent, to him on  his farm (the rate generally charged  and which includes both principal  ���������ind interest) he should get out of  farming, because it is certain that  either he or the country is not  adapted to it.  Think what such a system would  do for Northern British Columbia,  and what a firm hold bhe government introducing ib would secure  on the aflecbions of the farming  classes. It has been claimed that  it would not be introduced in this  province for the reason thab the  large majority of our people live in  cities and would fight such a policy  as special legislation in favor of a  comparatively small body -of the  population. But that is nonsense,  without a large area of cultivated  land tributary to it any city must  eventually come to grief. The  welfare of our cities is indissolubly  bound up with that of the country  districts, and the prosperity of the  latter re-acts at once aud - automatically ou the former.  If the government wants to find  a popular way to invest that surplus let it be the first Canadian  province to adopt the New Zealand  system of farm loans, and it can  sit back and await the future with  equanimity. Wo havo tho land;  we have, or can soon get, the farmers. We have, also, thanks to  the land policy of the government,  plenty of money in the treasury,  and can get more if we need it on  favorable terms. Nothing is lacking to change the name of British  Columbia from a "sea of mountains," to a sea of grain or other  farm produce, but a little assistance  granted at the right time to those  who are eager to undertake the  transformation. It costs money  to clear land in this province, but  the land is the best on earth when  it is cleared. A little assistance at  the start would save the settler  years of thankless toil and would  enable the people of our: cities to  secure home grown produce at  reasonable prices. ��������� The Interior  News.  ooooiSooooodoooociooooooooda  o  WHAT  CANADIANS  ARE DOING  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCXD  C.

Last week tho Granby mine  shipped 23,292 tons of ore.  Last week the Granby smelter  treated 23,SOS tons of ore.  Last week the Mother Lode  lhino shipped 7,920 tons of ore.  Last week tho Greenwood  smelter treated 15,355 tons of,ore.  Last week the Napoleon mine  -shipped 50S tons of ore.  Last week the shipments of  blister copper from tho Granby  smelter amounted to 3-10,000, a  total for* the year of 13,242,500  pounds.  Near Midway the Boundary Exploration Co. hab four men sinking  a three compartment shaft. A  gasoline hoist has recently been  installed.  The Bounty Fraction at Beaverdell will begin shipping when the  railway begins hauling freight.  Already considerable high grade  ore lias been sacked and more is  being put up every day.  At tho workings of the Midway  Coal &��������� Coke Co., near Ingram  bridge, the shaft is down 95 feet  with coal showing in the bottom.  It is likely that the contractor will  install a gasoline engine for hoisting this month.  The Granby is still working two  diamond drills iu Phoenix. The  small one is operating on the Gold  Drop and the big one has been  moved into the city and is punching a hole not far from the C. P. R.  station. No information is obtainable in regard to the result of the  Granny's diamond drill explorations.  On the east fork of Rock Creek,  at White's bar, a Calilornia company has five miles of the creek  leased, and has ten men at work  dredging the creek and washing  the gold out of the' dirt. At a  depth of five feet gold has been  found, and if bedrock can be reached at a depth of thirty feet- the  company will make big money.  At its property near Chesaw, the  Molson Mining Co., is making  preparations to install a 50 horse  power gasoline engine.  Newman Erb, president of the  British Columbia Copper company,  says that the company's production of copper in July exceeded  .1,000,000 pounds. This represents  a substantial increase over the  month of June.  Recently the Granby has been  making a net profit of $135,000  a month.  The Apex mine near Chesaw  has resumed operations.  The B. C. Copper Co. produced  1,020,000 pounds of copper in  July, and 996,000 pounds in June.  C^JOO<>OC^OOOOKX>000000000000  I   B. C. MINING NEWS   f  0000<K><>00<>CK>OOCK><><X><>000<K>0  John A. Thomson, managing di  rector of the Mount Stephen Mining syndicate, operating the Mon  arch mine at Field, writes that the  now mill is making a very satis  factory concentration, producing  both lead and zinc concentrates of  marketable, grade. As first installed the mill was not designed  to make zinc concentrates but recently changes have beon made so  that now they are turning out a  car of zinc concentrates per week  and a 35 ton car of silver-lead concentrates every four days. Four  thousand toils of ore have been put  through the mill bo far and the  company has on hand 700 tons of  concentrates in which the separ*  ation of tho zinc was not given  close attention and which will be  further separated into the two  products. At present the company is milling about 425 tons a  week. Tho mine is situated on  the   precipitous   side   of   Mount  Stephen and is one of the oldest in  British Columbia, The lead was  exposed in a cut when the main  line of the Canadian Pacific railway was under construction. Formerly the tunnol was reached by  a bridge built out in the side of the  cliff, but the company has run a  tunnel to obtain ingress and egress  with greater safety. Altogether  tunnels and raises to tho extent of  1,100 feet have been run recently  and considerable new ground opened up proving the ore body to continue in volume, grade and extent  well up with the previous grade  aud size. The period of adjustment of a new mill and tho changes  that have had to be made to meet  tho local difficulties in the milling  practice is now past and the company expects to maintain a steady  rate from now on.���������Golden Star.  The excitement over the discovery of gold-bearing float a few  miles to the east of this town, has  subsided, the fact of the original  discoverers not yet having established the 'cad putting a damper  ou the search. Numerous parties  visited the section where the float  was picked up, and the original  discoverers have beeu diligently  searching for the vein, but unsuccessfully so far. ��������� It seems to be  the general opinion, however, that  the hills in that section are full of  gold-bearing strata, and that it will  only be a question of time until a  big vein of rich ore is discovered,  in the meanwhile the government  is the greatest gainer from the discovery, having sold a miner's licence to nearly every man in the  community since the discovery was  made.���������Quesnel Observer.  Word was received here  within  the past few days  that   Captain  John Irving, one of  the  principal  owners of the Arctic Chief mine,  one of  tho best copper properties  in the local belt, is perfecting arrangements whereby work will be  started on  the mine in the near  future.    There has been  nothing  done on the Arctic chief since late  in 1907,   nearly   five   yeard   ago.  But for several mouths before that  period a large crew was employed  there and several hundred tons of  ore was shipped, being hauled from  the mine to the depot in White-  horse in  wagons.    As no money  was lost in operating in that small  and primitive manner, the owners  of the property realize that,  with  the railroad  spur practically tapping the mine and at the  present  low rates  on   ore   transportation  given by the company, taken with  the high price of copper,   it could  now be operated at great financial  profit.    It is reported that H. W.  Vance,  for a long   time   general  manager of the Conrad properties  in the Carcross properties country,  but now of Seattle, will come here  to take charge of the operations  proposed to be inaugurated at the  Arctic   Chief.     Mr.   Vance   is   a  thorough mining man, a good  fellow,  and  his  return to Southern  Yukon would be hailed  with delight by his many friends.    From  present indications the time is not  distant  when   two   or   three   ore  trains  will be operated daily between this place and Skagway-by-  the-Sea.��������� White Horse Star.  New Hazelton. ��������� Another big  coal field haB been discovered and  it gives promise of being an important feeder to New Hazelton,  owing to its location on the Kit-  seukla river near tho headquarters.  William McDonald, Langley, has  returned from tho fields and reports finding an excellent grade of  coking coal. Ho has staked a  block of ten Bections, and on every  section he found coal, samples of  which he brought back to town  with him. This coal can bo reached either by following tho Kit-  seukla river from its mouth near  Skeena Crossing bridge, or by going in from Morristown and up  Trout creek.   Tho Kitseukla routo  the shorter, but the grade is a  ttlo heavier, while on the Trout  I Greenwood FEED Store |  *j| ���������' ���������.���������������������"������������������-������������������- |;  I I  I   HAY, CRAB, FLOOR   1  1        AND SALT.

ROBERT WILLIAMSON,  Applicant.  creek trail there is a very small  grade, and in either case an excellent wagon road or railway can bo  built. The Kitseulka coal field is  just the other side of the mountain  from the Copper river coal, but it  is quarter the distance from the  present transportation, or oven less,  and the quality is equal. In fact  it is believed by Mr. McDonald  that it is the same deposit. He  had a couple of men with him on  this trip and they did considerable  work, sufficient to satisfy them  that it was well worth looking  after. In a short time Mr. McDonald will return to the property  with more men and possibly an  engineer. If it is found to bo what  he believes it is, this coal deposit  will most likely be the first shipper  in the northern part of British  Columbia.
