"Although the mines on the Main  river and West Fork which have  been    developed    to   any    great  extent, contain small, bodies of. high  grade ore, there are large bodies of  low grade ore equal in   extent   to  any of the low grade properties in  the Boundary.    On ' Beaver Creek  several locations have been  made  on enormous bodies of  low grade  ore, one of ..which will yet. furnish  as large a tonnage as the Mother  Lode mine  in   Dead wood   camp.  About ten miles up Beaver Creek,  from Beaverdell   there  are some  very large iron outcrops,   one,   75  feet in width.    There  are also a  number   of  higher   grade  quartz  ledges running"from 6 to 30 feet in  width.   It is safe to say  that the  properties, along, the upper portion  of the West Fork will yet furnish  as large a tonnage as the mines of  the Boundary.  JUDGMENT GIVEN.  Word was received in the city  Saturday of ;the death of Mrs.  Castelraan, which took'place in  Vancouuer on Monday last. Mrs.  Cdstelman left Midway about a  week ago on a'visit to a-daughter  at the coast. She died in the hospital-while 'undergaing an operation to remove an absess on the  brain. Deceased was a resident of  Boundary district for the' past  eleven or "twelve years, living on a  ranch near Boundary "Falls, and  was respected by all. Her husband died a few weeks ago at Midway.          The bartender will always be delighted to hand you out a box of  K.-K. C. cigars.  MIDWAY AND VERNON  takes legal'percentage.

Information received in the city"  the past week leaves no doubt that  the charter has been disposed of to  either the C. P.������R. or Great Northern. . It is understood that all the  arrangements for the transfer have  been completed, and that the announcement of details of the deal  will be inade'in a few days. To  both the great railways competing  for the mine tonnage of this district, the West ;Fork road should  bo a very desirable branch. Tbis  would bo especially so in the case  of the C P. R., as the Midway and  Vernon would not only furnish a  large ore tonnage from the West  Fork mines, but would give a direct route for the agricultural products of the Okanagan.to the mining districts of the West Fork and  the Boundary. It would also boa  connecting link between the" Columbia and Western and Shuswop  and Okanagan railways, both* controlled by the Canadian Pacific.  The C. P. R. 18 building a boat to  run on Okanagan lake which it  is said wfll be the fastest craft on  interior waters, and will make the  round trip between Okanagan and  Penticton daily.  To the Great Northern the Midway and Vernon should bo a desirable branch, as it would givo that  road not only tlio tonnage of the  West Fork,' but an entrance into  Che Okanogan valley and its share  of the hauliigo to and from  that  Copy of judgment given by His  Henor, W; H. P; Clement. Judge  of the County Court of Yale in the  appeal of James Dallas against the  decision of the Board of License  Commissioners for the Greenwood  License district at a meeting held  in Midway on the 15th day of June,  1906:-    '  I very much doubt, having in  view the provisions of  Sec. 11   of  the Act, whether thwe is in  this  case an existing valid license to be  renewed    or    transferred.   -   The  license    now    outstanding . was  granted to one Bernard  Lequime,  who has long since ceased to be,   if  indeed he ever were, the, occupant  of   the   premises   named   in   the  license ; and if the appellant Dallas  were to-.lay   charged   with- selling  "liquor without a' license ~ d *mhst  confess that I do not see how the  preduction   of   Lequim's   license  would    help    him   to   rebut the  charge.    And, of course,  if there  be no existing   valid   license,   the  prohibition contained in the amendment of last session (1906-sec-lla)  is operative  to  forbid  any  new  license.     But, however this may  be, I think that, on" the facts,  the  appeal must be dismissed.   I have  searched the Act in   vain   to find  any guiding principle to govern or  regulate the exercise of the Commissioners' discretion  in  granting  or refusing licenses ; and the same  remark   applies to this appellate  tribunal constituted by the Act of  last session.    There is  an appeal  from   the  practically    unfettered  discretion of one man.     There is  nothing to indicate whether a renewal of an   old license  is  to   be  granted, prima facie, as of course,  or only iu special cases.     I think  it as clear, however that I have to  exercise my discretion without any  regard to the view taken   by the  Board, but I must confess that I  have been much troubled to find  some principles upon which to act  in these cases.     In   this   case,   I  think I should, and I do,  put my  judgment upon   the   around   that  the    appellant> has    admittedly  broken the plain law of the land as  to gambling, has taken   his share'  in the profits therefrom, and has so  acted   whenever through  the inaction���������to use no harsher term���������  of the police he could do   so with  impunity.   However, the plea that  the practice is winked at .by the  authorities and that the appellant  is no worse an offender than other  licensees might operate elsewhere,  it cannot avail in a Court of Justice.   I cannot think that a Judge  should exercise his   discretion   in  favour of an appellant who has admittedly  broken  the   law.    No.  Casts.

Chine, a  miner, was seriously injured at the  Skylark mine, by rock   fulling on  him.   -The   men   were * going   on  shift and Clune being in  the lead,  was making a short cut through a  stope at the 60 ft." level,  when the  rock came down* on him,  seriously  injuring his spine   and   breaking  one of his legs below the  knee.  The rock was taken off him in a  few seconds by the other men who  were going on shift with him, and  the injured man was taken to  the  surface    in    the    bucket.      Dr.  Boucher-was summoned at once,  and bad Clune taken to the hospital.    Later in the day the patient  was removed to the' Grand Forks  hospital by train.    The injuries to  the back are so serious that very  slight hopes are entertained of the  patient's recovery.  The stope where the accident  occurred had been worked in the  day previous to the -accident, and  foreman Rowe had examined the  workings during the night, and  found them to all appearances  quite safe. ���������  The.injured man is well known  both here and in the Slocan, and  his many friends, throughout the  mining districts of British Columbia will regret to hear of the accident, his chances of recovery  from which are perhaps not one in  a thousand. The latest report  from the hospital at Grand Fork3  states that he is resting easily and  may possibly recover, but that the  injuries to his back aro so severe  that a fatal result may.be expected.  GL0STER CITY  (Communicated) f  The'discbvery of'b'ba'ies"! of-high  grade copper and hematite ores up  the east tributary of the north fork  of Kettle river has created some  stir amongst investors and prospectors, with the usual results in  the west that townsitcs have been  laid out and building materials are  being brought up to the rival  towns, Franklin City and Gloster  City. With regard to the respective merits of these "cities" we can  have no opinion as the country is  too 3'oung and the prospects still  too undeveloped to judge whether  one has any advantage over the  other from a speculator's point of  view. The country appears to be  rather broken in places,- but the  mineral belt seems to be regular in  its direction, but prospectors  claim that the ore bodies can be  traced on the surface in a most  satisfactory way.  The Maple Leaf claim which adjoins the Gloster City towneite to  the west is well worthy of mention  as a prospect with a most promising showing of high grade copper  ore. Tho (owncrs, Messrs. Fee  Bros. & Young discovered a JIarge  outcrop this spring. They worked  on the claim doing assessment and  prospect work since they first recorded it in 1898 but only came  across the finest showing by accident early this year, a short time  ago. They bouded tho Maplo Leaf  together with their two adjoining,  properties, the "Twilight and  Climax" to Messrs. H. W. Warrington, C. E., and Geo. A. MacLeod, who aro employing twenty  men opening up the ore body.  Another group of claims worthy of  note lies to the east of Gloster City  belonging to two Danish prospectors. Tho owners are engaged  in thoroughly prospecting the properties and have driven several tun  uols and sunk shafts, in all cases  striking tho ore "whoro they had  calculated on doing so.  Mepsrs. P. Donaldson and J.  Stewart have two promising claims  to tho north of Gloster City and  have discovered a good showing of  copper and hematite of a very similar character to that of the  Gloster, which is under bond to  the Dominion Copp_er Co.  The Gloster mineral, claim lies  up the river four miles from the  town which has adopted its name,  and has . already been so often  and so fully described that it is  useless to refer to it here except to  state that the Dominion Copper  Co. have a number of men working there. The ownersJiave every  confidence that the company will  eventually buy the property.  One piece of advice we would  like-to offer, that is travelers going  up the North Fork road should go  on horseback. The grades are  excellent but the greater part of  the road is newly constructed and  has been so badly ��������� cut up by the  heavy loads of freight, most of it  loaded on narrow guage wagons  which has been hauled during tho  rainy season, that it is a matter of.  great discomfort for anyone traveling in a light conveyance to go for  any distance, and it is also a mere  speculation whether you will  manage to arrive at your destination with a whole rig. The road  has also the disadvantage of being  very narrow in places and no provision has been made for vehicles  to pass, and much delay and annoyance is consequently caused.  We look forward with every  confidence to see a rival Boundary  in this new and promising district,  and congratulate the pioneers who  have had the courage to open up  the country practically at their own  expense. y  Could not Pass the Buck  The writer once' saw conductor  Dave McKay- shobt^a'.' bear, -while  on a moving taain near Nakusp,  but  according   to   the   Rosslaud  Miner that feat was surpassed by  a fisherman on  tho Arrow lakes  some time last week.    While trolling for trout several deer swam  past his boat.     One was an old  buck and the fisherman having  nos  gun tried to kill him with a clasp  knife.   The buck objected,  upset  the boat and swam away with the  fishing line on his   horns.     The,  fisherman bailed out his boat and  after   chasing   the  deer  for two  hours succeeded in killing   him.  While the chase was going on,  a  big trout got onto tho  hook   and  was captured along with the deer.  The man must be luck  personified  who can go fishing and bag a .200  pound deer and a 10 pound  trout  at the same time.    As the buck  was trolling tho line that hooked  the trout it seems too bad  that he  should have lost his   life    while  building np a reputation  for his  antagonist.    Sort of   killing   the  buck that laid the golden trout.  It is quite a common occurrence  to see deer swimming the lakes in  B.C. Some years ago Neil Geth-  ing tried to lasso one from the old  W. Hunter on Slocan lake, but the  deer was too swift for Neil, even if  he had learned to throw the rope  around some of the best cow camps  in Montana.  This week the   deal   was   completed for the transfer of tho remaining   half  interest    held    by  Harry Shallenbergerin the Crescent  to Col. L. F. Dickason of Chicago.  Sometime ago Col,  Dickason obtained an option on ..the claim and  a company  was formed to   take  over the property.    The final payment was made this week to Mr.  Shalleuberger   and   the   property  taken over by the company.     W.  H. Jeffery, M. E.,   was placed iu  charge   of   development Tuesday  last, and work will  be energetically prosecuted on  the property.  Under the superintendence of Mr.  Shalleuberger, a large amount of  development work has been done  on the Crescent.    Two shafts have  been sunk.    From No.   1 a drift  has been run 200 fectTat the 100  foot level,  and  from No.  2,   110  feet of drifting has been done at  the SO foot level.    Over one hundred tons  of rich silver-gold ore  have been shipped from  tho mine.  The Crescent is in Skylark camp  about a  mile and   a  half  from  Greenwood, and is equipped with  a   20  horsepower   electric  hoist.  Mr. Shallenberger will devote his  atiention to the Crescent No.   2,  and Crescent Fraction,, adjoining  properties iu which he is interested.  Ja?. Kerr le.t'6 this. week_ to. do  his annual ass'essirient.work on the-  Butcher Boy and other claims he  is interested in near C.irmi. The  work will 'take ' about three  months.  SCHOOL REPORT  ���������  Drifting is being continued on  tho Strath more with satisfactory  results. '    '  Tho stories that iloat back from  Nevada about the millions made in  that state by John McKau", Dr.  Bowes and other Rosslaud people  have more froth than real beer.  No doubt the Rosslaud plungers  have done well but much of the  wealth is in nice gilt-edged (in the  print) stock certificates/     *  Tho St, Eugene at Moyic is  again working its full force of 300  men, It grows daily apparent  that this mine is good for several  years.     ���������������������������������������������'  , F.'F. Ketch urn, of W. A. Keith  & Co., Beaverdell, came iu on  Friday's stage and will leave for  the West Fork on Saturday. Mr.  Kitchum reports business fairly  good, and all the properties now  being.worked,."sho,wfhg v up. well.'  The Duncan.and Bounty 1 Fraction,  about half a mile from Beaverdell,  have a vein of rich ore uncovered  for a considerable distance. The  vein is about IS inches in width,  showing considerable native silver.  Development has been discontinued  for the present on the Washington  and Idaho. Work has again  started on the Rambler, and assessment work is being done on a  number of claims in the vicinity of  Beaverdell. Tho Carmi mill was  started up a few days before Mr.  Ketchum left, but had not been  running long enough to know  whether or not the results were  satisfactory.     The 20 horsepower electric motor  has been installed at tho Prince  Henry, aad development resumed  with a force of six men under the  the foremanship of Walter McDonald. It is expected the property  will become a regular shipper in  the course of sixty days.  The editor of the Anaconda News  visited tho Gold Finch mine last  week and found the "door barred,'1  therefore ho concludes that the  strike reported in tho tunnel is  without foundation. It is not always possible to get inside information and this was a case where the  News editor evidently failed to get  on tho "inside."  Work was started on the Eureka  this week, a contract for a 100 foot  tunnel having been lot. Four men  are at work. The Eureka company intend running tho. tunnel in  about 250 feet. This will giyo a;  depth of 200 feet on the lead.' '  DIVISION' I���������J.   I,.'

The members have little or no  time even for incidental legislation.  At Ottawa the time is all taken  up with squabbles and resultless  debates on alleged land grafts, insurance scandals, fake immigration  companies, illeged timber grants,  Arctic-grub-wine-cigarette polar expedition expenditures and so forth  a.nu so forth. No legislation beyond the enactment of a Sunday  observance law which makes it  permissible to breath on the Saw-  bath between certain hours.  Over on the other side, having  just got through with insurance  frauds, they are now in the thick  of the Diseased Beef Trust Scandal.  Within the past, week or two, a  couple of United States Senators  have been expelled from the Senate  ���������one (Burton) for graft, the other  (Smoot) for having a plurality of  wives. Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, (father of the Duchess de la  Rochefoucauld, of Paris,) died  quite recently after being found  guilty of colossal land frauds in  Oregon. He preferred hell to the  state penitentiary.  On reading the foregoing, old-  countrymen aro apt to wag their  heads complacently and say, "You  never hear of any of this graft  business over in England. They  are above that sort of thing, my  boy. Too high a sense of houor  don't you know.  Ha ha ! Dear old England has  the biggest graft scandal of them  all. And what is more, it emanates right from the Army, where  "honor" is the main feature, according to popular novels and magazine short stories. The War  Stores theft involve a loss to the  British public of $40,000,000!!! I  These figures seem increditable  And yet they are revealed in black  and white in the War Stores Inquiry before the Commission presided over by Mr. Justice Farwell,  now sitting in London. Col. Morgan, director of supplies in South  Africa, and head of the sales de-;  partment, has been giving evidence  to try and account for the disappearance (through alleged deliberate graft on the part of himself  and other army moguls) of surplus  stores amounting to eight million  pounds.  The amusing part of it to an admirer of graft is the naive protest  by Col. Morgan that the amount  got away with was not eight million  pounds   but    only    two   million  poilnds.   At least he claims that  ho was not in oh tho loot of the  other six millions.  What is this world coming to ?  What is to be done about the  ever-increasing graft   disclosures?  Nothing.  Laws won't make men honest.  Unless the people themselves  cease to set such store by. wealth  and tho power which wealth  briiigf, there will be new crops of  exalted rogues with each year.  he is rated a d���������d  old faker; but let  with his graft all right and be  known to have money to.. burn,  then the populace applaud, bartenders give him a clean thin  glass to drink his whisky out of,  hotel clerks give him a room on  tho first floor, tho humbler fry are  proud to be seen speaking to him  on the street and he is welcomed  as a pillar in the church lucky  enough to get his patronage. Canada is being debauched by its worship of tho man who succeeds, no  matter how.  What is needed is some substitute for the eternal striving to be  rich. Moderate prosperity���������if  everybody could be satisfied with  that. This would mean reasonable living expenses and therefore  moderate profits for. all lines of  business. This condition requires  the granting of a square deal to  every producer and every consumer.    AVhas ho ! the millenium.  See how Joseph Seagram and  his millions are worshipped and  looked up to. And yet Seagram  has made his millions by selling a  line of rotgut whiskey that has put  more men in their graves of recent  years than - were buried on the  field of Waterloo. Wo only cite  Joseph as the example which naturally occurs to lis first. There  are others.  One of the chief reasons why  graft is so prevalent these days is  because the people evince not the  slightes indignation over tho tricks  turned at their expense by the  grafters. If the public, who are  directly effected, do not care, why  should the grafters lose any sleep ?  In parliament, political grafters  are protected by their party. In  business establishments, an employee who is suspected of crooked  work, is fired, simply out of considerate for the interests of the  shareholders in the business. Not  so with an. Ottawa government.  Business lines do not prevail  there.  The methods of the government  are strange. When one of their  number is discovered by the opposition to be crooked, and proof-  adduced, so far from being' fired  the crooked one finds himself more  strongly entrenched in his position  than ever. His own bosses, instead of giving him the bounce  aud showing a decent desire to surround themselves with honest servants, rush to his aid, explaing  away his piccadilloes, make excuses of the most plausible nature,  invent extenuating circumstances  and even boldly deny the truth of  proven facts. This is called  "sticking by one's friends."  If the Liberal party cornea to  grief at all, it will be due to the  resentment of the public against  the unblushing manner in which  politically-useful crooks are harbored within the party walls and  extended protection,  Sifton, Preston and Wagner,  the Unholy Trinity, three in one  and one iu three, six of the one  and half a dozen of the other.  Wagner is not by any means the  worat of the trio, even though he  has served two separate terms of  imprisonment at Fort Saskatchewan for robbing his Galician compatriots of largo sums of money.  He only lacks tho education aud  subtetly of the other two. IHb  work was coarse. Their's was  not. Result; Jail, Wagner,���������  Wagner, jail.  If tho Liberals are not strong  onongh numerically in honest men  to ran their governing machine,  they will fall by tho wayside as  sure as their is a God in heaven.  Tho public will stand for just so  much.   No more.  The future of the Liberal party  lies in the palm of Frank Oliver's  hand. His clean record is the one  big asset possessed by the somewhat tricky bunch with whom he  is politically associated. Sir Wilfred himself stated tho other day  kth,at much of .the policy  (Sif ton's)  rascal and an 1 Oliver has abandoned Sifton's pol-  him get away icy "altogether and   given assurances the shadj' practices formerly  in vogue will henceforth be impossible.���������Calgary Eye-Opener.

How  did it arise? Its origin is purely,  trans-Atlantic. ' Sixty years ago  all the principal avenues of the  City of Deleware led iu one direction to a tollgate close to the Elm-  wood Cemetery Boad. This cemetery having been laid out long  before the construction of the  plank road beyond the tollgate,  funeral processions were allowed to  pass along it toll free. One day, as  Dr. Price, a well known physician,  stopped to pay his toll, he observed  to the gatekeeper: Considering  the benevolent character of the  profession to which I have the  honor to belong, yon ought to let  us pass toll free.' No, no, doctor,  the man replied, we can't afford  that. You send too many deadheads through here as it is.

The following morning a- letter  came to the offices from a "Constant Reader."   It ran:  Dear Mr. Editor:���������By an earlier  post I sent you a chicken.

He  swallows it, too and it never seemB  to make him sick.  Force of Habit  A hair dreBser was summoned to  a private house the other day to  shave a " French, poodle.

'_  STICK TO STRAWBERRIES  As the raising of strawberries  and other fruits is likely to become  a great business in'B; G, we print  the following advice from a Florida paper:  The Plant City Courier tells of a  man in that vicinity who has already this season shippen $2300  worth of strawberries from two and  a half acres of land, and has yet  enough left to carry the receipts up  to a round thousand. dollars an  acre. ' '.  .-������������������'���������''  Instances like these come every  now and again to remind us that  men in this section ought to stick  to a thing even when it occasionally goes into eclipse. Strawberries are splendidly paying crops  three seasons out of four, and yet  there are men so blind that when  they have met a loss in their cultivation, or failed- of the great reward they expected, quit their  cultivation in disgust." This has  Wen a very'favorable ..season, and  if a man has lost three previous  crops���������which, by the way; he has  never done, ho would liavo made  handsome money in the long run.  Lack of systematically sticking  to an intelligent policy in farming  is the bane of operations iu South  Florida. Following a remarkably  c;ood season like this, many men  will go into berries. Next season  may be only  an average,   and  a  large portion of the men' in the  business will be possibly disappointed in their returns. They  will quit in disgust, whether the  reason be the season or their own  fault, and will proclaim berry raising to be a fraud. It is tolerably  certain that in any business lif i a  man must follow.it steadily and  study it all the time, and be perpetually increasing his knowledge  aud improving his methods. But  Bomehow there seems to be an impression abroad that anybody can  raise strawberries, that it requires  neither knowledge nor experience  ���������nothing but plants placed in the  ground. No wonder many people  fail.  The experienced berry grower  will tell you that thete is no business that requires more knowledge,  work, attention and skill than his  pursuit. The man who applies  these things will win big money,  and the man who tries any other  method, or fails in the application  of all these will make a miserable  failure..   Fish may be Tamed  The problem as to whether fishes  may be tamed in the state of liberty has recently been solved affirmatively by a Swiss physician,  Dr.   R.   Fastenrath   of   Herisan.  The doctor availed himself of a  recent  sojourn   at   the   lake    of  Lugano to carry out some interesting experiments in the matter.  He  would sit down near the shore with  only his head emerging from the  wattr for fully an hour resting his  hands on his knees and keeping in  each of them a largo piece of bread  which was soaked thoroughly by  the water.   This.process he carried out for some days, both in the  morning and the evening,  sitting  motionless like ~ a living   statute.  Whereas all the fishes had been  averse to touching the. bread in the  beginning some   members- of the  very younger broods would finally  come near the doctor and pick up  some of the bread, but would immediately make a hurried flghht.  As days went on, however,  they  became 'more  confident, and the  older members of the fish family  would by-and-by follow their example, until all the fishes swarmed  freely around the doctor,   undisturbed by his motions, enjoying  the meal offered by him.   At last  be could even stroke and handle  them or splash   violently  in  the  water without in the least disturb-  the fishes.  business in that city, ' through the  elimination of the bars, which have'  been a leading feature of retail  trade. ��������� A movement isjqn. fqqt t>Q  raise the saloon license from $1Q,Q  to $500, which would undoubtedly  have the effect of divorcing the  two lines of business. The saloonr  grocers of San Francisco have hithr  erto utilized the association movement largely for the staving off of  increased licenses, but one of the  developments attendant -upon the  restoration of the city is the concerted efforts' to make the liquor  traffic bear an increased proportion  of the burdens of government, and  this will probably cause a majority  of the grocers to confine themselves  to the legitimate channels of trade.  Such a departure will undoubtedly  redound to the benefit of the commercial interests -affected, and  should be conducive to pnblic morality as well.  Died from Glandeas.

"IN THE SLOCAN  Divorce in Canada  Senator "JJulIcn in a, recent-papci  contributes some interesting  itifor-  ��������� mation concerning divorces in Can-  >ada. It was in answer to tho argu-  fment-thafc in Cmada divorces can  ��������� only be obtained by tho rich, by  'stating that when the applicant is  : poor.-but entitled to a divorce, the  .'parliamentary expenses are waived,  sin regard to the number of divorces he says:  v. Since confederation np to 1904  we:have'ha'd 58 cases of divorce in  ^Ontario; in ('iuebec, in the same  'iime, 19; in Manitoba and the Territories, S���������in all, S5 divorces by  iparliamentary proceedings. In  :Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and  -'British Columbia they had divorc?.  'courts   before confederation,  and  ��������� that right was continued to them  'under the confederation act.- In  'Nova ' Scotia, during the above  'period, 125 divorces have been  granted; in New Brunswick SO: in  j'British Columbia GG���������in all, 271  ^u these three provinces, having a  {population of about a million aud  ;'a half, while the other portion of  ���������the Dominion as outlined above,  'with a population of over four  ^million, has only .85 divorces.  i Senator Mullen's figures would  be more instructive if he could  ishow how many people of Ontario,  '.Quebec and Manitoba have gone to  'the States to get "easy" divorces  irather than go through the parliamentary mill. The number of  ^Canadians who have thus patron-  . 'ized the divorce courts across the  'line is known to be large, but- of  fcourse there is no means of securing an exact .record.���������Rosslaud  ���������'Miner:   The Eoundary Production  During this . j'ear tiie ore  mined and smelted in the Boundary has averaged more than 100,-  ���������000 tons a month. The shipments  Mast week were:  J   To Granbv smelter from Gran by  mines, 17,313 tons; from Emma,  ���������120 tons; from Skylark, 40 tons.  To Dominion Copper smelter from  Brooklyn-Stem winder, 3,135 tons;  from Eawhide, 390 tons; from Sunset, 726 tons; from Mountain Eose  40 tons. To Trail smelter from  Providence, 50 tons; from Sally, 20  tons. Total shipments for the  year to date, 001,008 tons. District smelters treated this week as  follows: Granby smelter, 18,393  tons; Dominion Copper Co. smelter  4,297 tons; total treatment for  weekj 22,690 tons; total treatment  for  year   to   date  GLl,G27   tons.  Mines at Rosslaud  The profits on the Le Roi for tho  month of May on the ore extracted  reached the very respectable sum  of $50,000. This mine shows almost a similarly good profit for the  several months of tho year up to  date, and a good sized sum must  rest in the treasury awaiting the  time when the directors may elect  to declare dividends and distribute  it among tho stockholders. - The  Centre Star, although it does not  publish a monthly statement, is  said to bo making similar profits,  and these will appear in the quarterly dividends which the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., of  Canada, has declared its intention  of paying. The Lo Roi Two is  making larger profits than ever in  its history, which will also bo paid  out in dividends amoDg its shareholders.���������Rosslaud Miner.  Sidney Smith said:���������I am convinced that digestion is the great  secret of life, and that character,  virtue, talents, and qualities are  powerfully attracted by beef,  mutton, pie crusts and rich soups.  I have often thought I could feed  or starve men into virtues or vices,  and effect them more powerfully  than by instruments of torture  than Timothcus could do formerly  with his lyre. .  M. Davys of Nelson, has taken  hold of the Noonday near Silver-  ton and will put a force to work in  a short time. (  A party of Finnish miners are  doing considerable development on  tho Cascade near Silvcrton.  The C. P. R. has rebuilt the  wharf at New Denver.  The Bosun ore bins and tramway  are nenring completion.  A deal is on for tho timber limits  up Wilson creek. If the deal is  completed a sawmill will be built  at Roscbery.  Fruit lands are much in demand  around Slocan.  The crop of Slocan cherries is  fine and heavy this season.  The Index on Kaslo creek has  40 tons ready for shipment.  George Clark and Billy Bennett  have made a rich strike upon the  McAllister np the north fork of  Carpenter creek.  It is expected that the working  of the Fureka will bring the Hush  of prosperity to the cheeks of Sandon.  At the Kootenay saloon in Sandon Ed McLeod has not yet  adopted the leasing system, but his  tavern is just as cherry as it was in  the days when the boys piled the  chips so high that the reflection  made the ceiling look like the blue  sky.  The Red,Fox and R. E. Lee are  shipping several carloads of ore.  Ore from the dumps of the Monitor is being shipped to Rosebery.  Billy McClurg has not yet finished his contract of getting all the  trout out of Bear lake.  Wm. Stubbs, better known as  "Channcy" crossed the divide at  Euderby- by tho consumption route.  For many" years he was at the  Filbert and was one of the most  polite and corteous gentlemen that  ever mixed a drink in that hostelry.  Last fall when Paddy Murphy  opened the King Edward in En-  derby, "Chauneey" went with him.  When the whito plague became  aggressive Murphy did all in his  power to push the thorns away  from "Chauncy's" trail to the  grave, but of no avail. Death  would take no standoff and with  the game of life but half played  out "Chauncy" had to bow in submission and step into that land,  let us hope, where there are no dry  moments iu the morning.  On Mondayg forenoon, a child  playing with matches set fire to  Archie McDonald's house on Cody  avenue in Sandon, and before the  fire brigade got it under, control,  some fifteen shacks and houses up  the gulch were burned, some of the  occupants losing all their furniture. All tha buildings from two  doors below the old minors' hospital up to. this side of Gillie  McLeod's were destroyed.' The  fire ran upthe hill but no damage  beyond burning the timber and  putting some fear into those at the  Last Chance. H. F. Pound, Tom  Fox, Charles Jackson, City Clerk  Lyons, Bill Davidson, the M.P.P.  and several others' lost their homes.  The loss is about $12,000 with little  insurance.  The Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Co. is now operating in  the Slocan near Sandon. Jim  Cronin put a force to work the  other day on the Eureka-Richmond group, adjoining the Slocan  Star. The company also has its  C. P. R* eye on some claims, near  Silvcrton.
