Surrounded by a remnant  of his former string of drink-taking  satellites,, he stood" for more than  an hour at the corner of Columbia  and Crook streets " last * evening,  meeting former acquaintances.  Scotty, as of yore, maintains his  boycott on fashionable tailors. His  blue flannel shirt is just as dust  begrimed,   his  coiduroy   trousers  just as wrinkeled, and--the black  slouch  hat' just as battered as in  the days when he was "Scotty, tho  mysterious spender.'.', A mystery  he is still, but, alas and alack, not  a spender.    The hidden   "mine"  may have pinched out, or tlio wisdom of Hetty Green may have bo-  como his, but no ono can slander  Scotty by saying that ho wasted his  substance in   riotous   living   last  night.  This morning, however, when  accused by a representative of the  Tribune with being "busted,"  Scotty unbuttoned the blue flannel  shirt, twisted a leather money belt  about so that a long flat pocket flap  was exposed and produced a neatly laid package of fifty and hundred dollar bills, with the laconic in-'  struction, "count it."  The scribe did as instructed���������  and nearly fainted. Eleven thousand dollars was the total���������a very  sizable chunk of the root qf all  evil.   It was returned reluctantly.  The most unique travel experience to be enjoyed in America today is the journey through  the  double tracked, recently electrified  Hoosac tunnel,  which  bores   the  Hoosac mountain in Massachusetts  for a distance of nearly five miles  on the line of the Fitchburg divis-.  ion.of the Boston & Maine railroad.  It is the only railroad tunnel of  its size iu tho world through which  both passenger and freight trains  run  under electrical power,   with  the resultant absence of all   disagreeable sensations, and it typifies  a new triumph in modern American engineering and transportation  service.   '    .,  The Hoosac tunnel was first operated under electrical conditions  in May, 1911, after a record-breaking feat in installation, and about  35 years after it had been opened  to traffic. The substitution of the  more modern motive power has  been brought about at immense ex  pense, but in view of the important  benefits to the travelling public and  the increase in operating efficiency,  the company considers that the in-  vesti'ment was wholly justified  Within seven months of the actual commencement of the work,  the task of installing the necessary  equipment in this famous "bore,"  of building and equipping a big  power-house, arranging tho nee  essary overhead approaches to the  east and west portals, providing a  proper water supply aud otherwise  reorganizing its motive power, was  successfully carried out, and a  world record for such a piece of  work established.  The Hoosac tunnel, born of hu  man and financial tragedy, has  always been an object of deep interest to the American travelling  public,-which has never failed  bq impressed by tho-fact that a trip  through 4? miles of solid rock cannot be enjoyed by the patrons of  every railroad.  Indeed, the tunnel has no prototype in this country, and one is  obliged, to go to the Alps to find  its equal. And even' there the  traveler will look in vain for a 20  century electrical motive power installation such has just been added  LOWERY'S CLAIM  During tlie 37, months that 'Lowery's  Claim was on earth it did business all  over, the world.

GRWAM BELL  The Inventor of the Telephone   *  Alexander Graham Bell, the Inventor of the telephone, comes from a  family that has made a special study of sound and speech for three generations. His grandfather, Alexander Bell, Invented a method for removing  Impediments of speech; his father, Alexander Melville Bell, was the Inventor  of "visible speech," a system to teach deaf-mates to speak; and the third of  the Alexanders, really "Alexander tho Great" of his family, taught a,piece  of wire to carry the human voice many miles and deliver the message without a change. _   - ,  Ho -was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, In 1847, and after receiving his  education at tho High School and the University of his nativo town, went to  London at the age of twenty to attend the University, but left on account  of ill health, and in 1870 camo to Canada with his father. Two years later  ���������ho went to Boston, where he Introduced his father's system of teaching tho  deaf, and supported himself by private classes. But tho broader field of  ���������science attracted him most; In England and Canada he had carried on experiments in multiplex telegraphy which grow more fascinating as he proceeded, and In Boston he interested two wealthy men ,who supplied funds  for his experiments; but he had to teach by day for his own support.  In 1874 came the first faint elusive germ of the telephone; It seemed  Buch a wlll-o'-the-wisp to his partners that they would not listen to it; they  wore practical men with no time for such dreams. In 1875, after completing  his multiplex'telegraphy, he went to Washington and found his application  for a patent had been contested by Ellsha Gray, the great scientist. He was  in dospalr, but while talking to Professor Henry, he mentioned his theory  ���������of sending sound by telegraph, and the few kindly words of encouragement  he received, breathed Into him new Hfo and purpose.  He returned to Boston with a Riant'-"} energy but an almost empty purse.  To complicate the situation ho had fallen In lovo with Miss Hubbard,  daughter ol] his friend and benefactor, and had a feeling of delicacy about  asking tho father of his fiancee for a loan.** So in dosporatlon he renowed  tho struggle and In June, 1875, almost by jiccldont, stumbled on a clew that  solved tho problem. On February 14th, 1876, he fllod his application for a  patent- ono hpur later Ellsha Gray filed a caveat on preclsoly tho samo plan,  and on March 7th, 1876, Mr. Bell received his patent; It was number 174,465,  one of the most important! ever allowed in tho history of America.

C,  OPPOSITE-   POSTOPFICE  The Bush Fire  As there appears to be a general  feeling   , of *   partial      discontent  throughout the Province in consequence of tho cancellation of permits for land-clearing  by  fire ih  various sections, more particularly  in the Kootenays, a statement in  reference to the necessity as it appears to the governmental authorities for such   action    would   be  perhaps desirable at the  present  juncture.     The Officials -of   the  Forest Protection branch  of  the  Lands Department, it may be said  at the outset, are fully in sympathy  with the objections of  those com-  monsense and careful settlers who  do not see why'they should be deprived of the.right to u.tilize fire in  the clearing of their lands and who  contend that the bringing of their  holdings under cultivation is thereby hampered and retarded.     Unfortunately, however, it is impossible to discriminate in the formulation of rules and regulations between those who will exercise due  precautions and control their fires  and those who will not do so, and  the fact that out of forty reports  of expensive -fires of the present  season that are just to hand, land  clearing operations are set down as  the originating cause in thirteen  instances���������almost 35 per cent.���������is  evidence in itself that some strict  control of such operations-has become a paramount necessity.  *  Of the thirteen fires referred to  and chargeable to land-clearing,  but two were under requisite permit, and originated through insufficient care in the handling of  the settlers' fires. 'A very common source of destructive forest  fires is proven to be smouldering  fire from slashing burnings, while  the burning of brush without sufficient force to cope with any possible spread of the flames is another  established danger to valuable  property. In one case recently,  sparks from a clearing fire, under  permit, in the vicinity of Salmo in  the Yniir district, occasioned a  fire which has cost the country'no  less than $900,00 in fighting, which  had due care been exercised, would  not have been occasioned���������the  province at the same time retaining  a valuable tract  written oil" as lost.  of timber   now  PUBLIC HIGHWAYS  Province op,Bhitish Coi.-jmhia .

NOTICE  The clearing of land by fire of  course is attended with a minimum  risk during the winter and spring  months, aud during such seasons  it should be. arranged for, although  the summer appeals to the average  settler as -the period. best suiting  his convenience.. When fire is en-  voked during dryer seasons of the  year, certain cardinal rules of pre-  cautionary'procedure are shown to  be essential, and their observance  would produce a saving of millions  of dollars now counted as timber  waste. ���������_   ,  Primarily, slashings should not  be burned, the timber refuse being collected into piles instead'and  care bing ..taken to leave a sufficient fire guard between the fire  and adjacent inflammable material,  either standing or fallen wood ,or  dry gYass or buildings. Again it is  proven to be of great advantage  that fires for clearing be lighted at  night instead of during the day,  the atmosphere being heavier during the hours of night, the forestry . and vegetation generally  being damper, sparks carrying with  less facility, and it being considerably easier to locate communicated  fire.-" Constant watchfulness-~is of  course, too, a most important factor of safety; and when the refuse  desired to be consumed has been  thus disposed of, the settlers hould  look well to the embers, lest these,  left smoldering, should be born  away by the wind to prove the initiation of a disastrous fire.  Under and by \ irtue of the provisions ot the  Land Aot for the Pro*, luce of British Columbia,  I have seized thesawmlll buildings, mill plant,  and ������0,000 superficial feet, more or less of manufactured lumber, situate, lvlng, and being at  "Bridesville in the County of Yale, Piovlnce of  Tlntlsli Columbia, belonging lo and standing in  the name ot James Rltchey, and by direction of  the Ilouoiable, the Mlulstei of Lands,, I shall  ou the 18th. day of August,! or thirty days from  the fiist publication of this notice, Bell the said  mill buildings, mill plant, and manufactured  lumber by public auction, ou the said premises  at Bridesville, to the highest bidder, or sufficient theienf to satisfy thc claim of the Pro\-  niceof British Columbia for timber royalties,  amounting to f 1,254.50, together with costs of  seizuie and sale and all other legitimate expenses and costs as may have Uieii accrued.

BOUNDARY MINES  Work is steadily progressing on  the Argo tunnel. '  Last week the Greenwood  smelter treated 10,350 tons of ore.  Last week the Rawhide shipped  3,912 tons of ore, and the Mother  Lode, 5,469.  The force was increased last  week at the McKinley mine, in  Franklyn camp.  The Granby is looking for a  smelter site at Stewart and other  Northern points.  The Republic camp shipped  eight carloads of ore to the  Granby smelter last week.  A stringer showing ruby silver  was struck in the Big Tunnel on  Saturday,  about 1,200 feet from  the surface, aud 2,500 leet from  ��������� the portal.  At Chesaw the Granby is using  the diamond drill on the Gold  Axe. A car load of ore from this  ���������property some time ago gave  values of from $50 to $75 a ton in  gold and copper.  Thc May production of the  Granby Consolidated Mining &  Power company is reported as  1,23S,32S pounds of copper, 24,-  OSo ounces gold. This compares  with April production of 1,825,-  S40 pounds copper, 37,444 ounces  silver and 4446 ounces gold,  Production at the British Columbia Copper company for the  month of May was as follows:  copper 976,121 pounds, silver 12,-  703 ounces and gold 2880 ounces,  which compares with tbe April  figures of 952,284 pounds of copper, 3,126 ounces of gold and 13,-  629 ounces of silver.  A report comes from Spokane  that tbe First Thought mine at  Orient has been sold to au  English company for $8,000,000.  In Orient it has been the supposition, says the Journal, that the  deal was made more than a year  ago, and that Pat Burns, the  principal owner of the First  Thought, is a big stockholder in  the English company, - together  with A. J. McMillan, of the  Northport smelter and theLeRoi  mine at Rossland.'  Carpenter and Jack Seaton upon  September 9, 189!. They sold it  to Steve Bailey for $2,000.  Bailey sold it to A. W. McCune  for $125,000. McCune took out  a million dollars worth, of ore,  and then sold it to an eastern  company for another million.  The Payne iu the opinion of  many should still be a great producer if worked under honest and  efficient management.  NEW DOMINION Continued  supreme court by Justice Page,  who denied the application to have  the injunction continued while a  suit brought by the stockholders  is pending.  The court said that to compel  the defendants to cease operations  in their mines and close a substantial portion' of their smelting  plant would inflict serious injury  to the defendants. The final decree could give adequate relief for  any wrongs done during the litigation.���������Boston Commercial.  THE TULAMEEN  That those who go after platinum in the Simiikameen district  with the proper facilities should  make good money, Js the opinion  of Eobert Stevenson,   who,  as an  old time miner, is known to nearly  everyone in the mining industry  in this province.

Thoy will  show their ore to any who want to  see and they will contribute to  a mineral display, but they are  not advertising as they are ih no  hurry to sell even an interest.  Red Mountain which  was  clear  of snow earlier than any of the  neighboring peaks,   has   probably  had more work done on it this year  than any other.     F. C. Whitwell's  development of the Yellow Jacket  during  April,   May and   part   of  June  was of great value.    By an  adjustment of interests the Yellow  Jacket is now owned by R.

Fork of Kaslo creek.  t (In 1910 the mineral production  of B. C. was worth $26,377,066.  There was a decrease in the output of lead, zinc, copper and coke.  J. C. Ryan and his partners intend to do some work on the  Eureka this summer. This mine  is uear Sproule's, and was a shipper in the early days of the  Slocan.  The boards of trade did not  settle the coal strike last Monday,  and should have kept out of the  iigh t.    Too many cooks burn the  bacon    The coal  strike will be  over before the end of September.  The   Greenwood   smelter   has  sufficient coke on   hand and iu  transit from the east to keep all  its furnaces running until Oct-  ber.    After that if necessary more  coke  will  be brought from the  east, as the B. C. Copper Co., has  no intention of closing down upon  the account of dear coke.  The Slocan Record states that  it is reported that the Slocan Star  group at Sandon has beeu sold  to a Vancouver syndicate who  have set aside $100,000.for devel  opment work.   Perhaps   this is  the Star group, as Byron White I lias been deposited there in  anyone else, knows about the platinum possibilities of the Tulameen  River and Granite Creek.    In 18S5  he was one of the many miners  who had claims on Granite Creek.  "In that and the two following  years over $1,000,000 of gold and  platinum  was taken  out of   this  creek, and at that time platinum  wag -very low in value," he .said  last week.    At first it was worth  fifty qents an ounce, then it rose to  $1.50; and later to  $G.      James  Wilson who for-many years was  superintendent of the C.   P.   R.  telegraph in Vancouver, did some  buying about that time, and because of this demand   the   price  rose from  83  to  $G.    Now it is  worth from $38 to $40 an  ounce,  almost double the price of gold."  At first the platinum was discarded, but when it - became of  greater value it was saved. Mr.  Stevenson says he remembers Dr.  H. B. Cameron bringing out 300  ounces in 1S66.  With all the mining that went  on only a small portion of Granite  Creek .was worked out.   The appliances  in those days were not  equal   to   those   of   today.     The  miners used wing dams and sluices,  but were not able to work in the  deep water.   There is yet twenty  miles of Granite Creek and twenty  miles of the Tulameen River above  Princeton, in addition  to a large  section of the stream below where  Granite Creek debouches into the  Tulameen, that is waiting for the  operation of modern facilities.  "For every three parts of gold  there was ODe of platinum," Mr.  Stevenson remarked further, "and  it was often remarked that where-  ever the gold was in greater quan-  [ tity more platinum was also found.  I have seen some large platinum  nuggets, showing that the source  of supply could riot have been far  away.    It has also been  felt that  in those portions of the Tulameen  River and Granite, Creek still un-  worked big values are to be found.  The bed rock there is about forty  feet deep and a dredge similar to  those. now   used   in   the  Yukon  could do fine work.   There are not  the large boulders in the Tulameen  that has interfered with the dredging   on   the   Fraser   River   near  Lytton.     In  fact,  conditions  for  this form of mining in the Similkameen are very favorable.   Many  people hold leases on the Tulameen  and if the interests were consolidated and a large dredge built that  would be able to handle the gravel  I think that the records of  the  early days would be surpassed.   It  stands to reason   that,  if  placer  miners   working  by   hand   could  make satisfactory clean-ups, large  dredges   working   at    untouched  depths should get the mineral that  the  The Steamboat Consolidated  company, owning a group of mines  on the south side of Red Mountain,  is again iu the field. - C.
