Boundary     Creek    Times,  Duncan Ross, M. P., attempted to  defend   the course "f the Liberal  government in allowing the V., V.  &   E. to build iu American territory, when it could have been more  cheaply built on the Canadian side.  By  crossing  over  to  the Sidley  ranch tho road could have secured  a  better  grade to Oroville,  and  avoided a heavy cut..    But this  course would not have benefitted  Americans at the expense of Canadian   farmers.    Mr. Rosa in  his  reply   to   The Ledge ended by a  personal attack on R. G. Sidley,  and inforrcd that only Mr. Sidley  would have been benefitted by tho  road being built according to the  promise to parliament by Sir Wilfred Laurier, when Geo. E. Foster  introduced his motion in the house  V. & E. "to build in Canadian territory, where, in order to do so,  engineering difficulties ��������� would not  be encountered. Here is a list of  the names of ranchers affected by  the neglect of Mr. Boss and the  failure of Sir Wilfred Laurier to  keep his promise.  Acres  JR. G. Sidley n.ooo  C. W. Com!.'     3j0  W. H. Gardner     330  E. M. Cudworth      240  W. Worden      320  H. Rickers ;      320  Frank Kelsey \ *.      320  Win, Almquist      329  Ered Williams     320  John L. Dodds      240  Wm,  Letts ' .'     320  Albert Letts '     320  John Hill ���������.,.���������������������������    .160  Wm. Akers ;     320  Martin Kerby      160  Cecil A. Vaughan     320  James Kelioe       320  Geo. Higginbottom.: -..'.     320  Ira D. Kelsey     320  The foregoing, as well as others,  were entitled to protection by Mr.  Ross aud his party.   All these are  voters, and represent as prosperous  a farming community as there is in  Yale-Cariboo.    They are placed at  a great disadvantage iu marketing  their produce, in,order thrt American   towns   and American manufacturing industries might be built  up by an American railway coi-  poration.     Although Sir Wilfred  Laurier promised in the house that  the government would carry out  the conditions of Mr. Foster's resolution, and compel tbe V., V. it E.  to   build   in   Canadian   territory  where engineering difficulties did  not  prevent,   the  road   has been  built for tha purpose of exploiting  industries and towns on the American   side   of   the line;'when it  would have been much cheaper to  have built on  the Canadian side.  At the time,. Mr. Ross was asked  to protect the farmers in the vicinity   of Sidley.     He didn't do so.  His only reply may be summed up  in the following, which appeared in  his   paper,   the Bouudary Creek  Times, of August 24.  "Railway builders and railway  engineers arc governed by human  limitations. They must face conditions as they find them. In'do-  ing this the individual who wants  to sell land fo.* right of way, and  who may have ambitions to be the  father of a town is sometimes disappointed.''  This was Mr.  Ross' answer to  the. ranchers of Sidley,   many of  them    his   supporters.     Because  Mr. Sidley bud beeu outspoken in  his criticisms of the Liberal machine, he and his neighbors were  deprived of transportation facilities.    Although a Liberal, Mr. Sidley is independent, and independence is uot tolerated by the Liberal  machine.     The V., V. &E. was  built on American territory' where  a bettor grade and less expensive  road could have been built by going through the Sidley ranch.   But  this would have resulted in a small  town springing up on the Canadian  side  of the line, and a sawmill  erected there.    The sawmill, employing between  fifty and a hundred men, has been built in American   territory.     The ranchers of  Sidley   mountain   are  inconvenienced in marketing their produce.  Mr. Ro.������s is responsible for this.  enay lake, a young rancher from  the east is using electricity to make  his crops grow, and the experiment  .seems 'to be a success. He has  wires set up on poles connected  with wires that run underneath his  trees and plants. He aims to  snatch electricity from the air, and  if his process is successful it will  cause -a revolution in farming and  fruit raising.  I   Engineers Banqueted  THE SLOCAN MINES  makiug it compulsory on the V.,  News Items  The remains of Miss Watson,  who was drowned in the Slocan  river some months ago were found  near Winlaw's last Saturday.  Charles.Endress, from Peirolia,  is in the Boundary looking for a  business location.  "Parson" George Smith las  settled down on a 20-aci e ranch,  about 15 miles from Nelson. lie  still has the plug hat.  Near McCoy's Point on Knot*.,  Miners are not very plentiful in  the Slocan.  Indications point to a revival of  the mining industry in the Slocan.  Buildings will be erected at the  Standard   and the force increased.  F. F. Liebscher will work the  Oakland- next spring. It is near  the Wakefield.  Good strikes are reported from  the Last Chance, Goodenough and  other properties. ���������  Shipments have recently been  made from the Hartney, California  and Reed & Robertson.  The Bosun dumps are being  shipped to Rosebery where the concentrator is running steadily.  The mines back of Silverton are  attracting considerable attention,  and shipments are steadily incseas-  ing-  It costs ������3.50 a ton to pack ore  from the Sunshine to Sandon. In  the winter it can be rawbided for  82.50,  The long tunnel on the Surprise  which will tap the ore at a great  depth will be finished by the middle  of October.  - The Bachelor has a small streak  of ore in o"ne~of the tuunels that  assays about '75 per cent, in silver.  Three Forks banks on this mine.  Byron N. White is expected in  the Slocan this week. He has  been working a ten per cent copper  mine near White Horse all Bummer.  Harry Lowe and Dave Sloan  sold their lease on the Great Western to Vancouver parties for 81200.  This property is to be worked with  a large force.  The owners of the Mollie Hughes  are workiug that property and  makiug money. This mine somewhat resembles the Providence in  Greenwood.  After eleven years of single-  handed work, Frank Griffith has at  last struck the ore in the West-  mount, on Ten Mile. Thus does  perseverence win in the Slocan.  Al Holmquist and Tom Carley,  who have a leaso on the Sunshine  have made a strike recently that is  one of the finest showings over uncovered in the Slocau. In one  place they have four feet of solid  ore.   About 15 men are working on  the claims np tho north fork of  Carpenter creek. Ore is being  packed from the McAllister, and  several carloads of antimony will  be' shipped from the Alps and Al-  turus. This ore runs 60 per cent.  in antimony. The biggest ledge  in the Slocan is up tho north fork  of Carpenter creek, and there will  considerable ptir in that section before many moons.

When  the party arrived at 4 p. m., the  majority decided to visit the Mother  Lode and Boundary Falls smelter.  Fourteen    of    the    party    went  through the Strathmore and about  the  same   number   went  to   the  Providence.   One lady, Mrs. N.M.  McLeod,  went through the Strathmore,-.climbing down-and op tbe  ladder; .through  all the'workings,  and came back loaded  with rich  gold   and silver specimens, which  she picked out of the vein.   The  visiting party were:  A. Amos, C. W. Archibald, Mr.  and  Mrs. W. D. Baillalrge, N. T.  Bertrand,. Miss Bray, Mrs. Boyd,  Mrs. W. Bucke, R. deB. Corriveau  E.L.

After tbe mines had been visited  the ladies of the party were entertained at the rosidence of Mrs. J.  E. McAllister, and a banquet was  given in the Imperial hotel. Ow  ing to the limited seating capacity  of tho dining room, a large number  of citizens who wished to be pre*  eut and welcome the visitors were-  debarred from attending. Between  seventy and eighty persons were  seated, and after an excellent dinner tho following tooRt list waft  gone through with, Mr. W. G,  Gaunce boing chairman.  "Tho King.''  "The President of the United  .States," proposed by C. Scott Gal<-  loway, and responded to byG. A.,  Frosr, of New York, editor of the  Mining News.

Miller. ��������� -  About 9:30, tha special train oa  Which the visitors arrived pulled  out. ^ All expressed themselves  highly pleased with wtyat they had  seen, especially those who visited  the Providence and Strathmore.  This was the first awakening of  the citisens of Greenwood in sis  years, and it is to be hoped it will  not be the last.  The committee of arrangements  deserve credit for the faultless  manner iu which the details were  carried out. They had only a few  days to do the work, but it was  done thoroughly. Some citizens '  were overlooked) and others who  Were invited, withdrew when it  Was found that all could not be accommodated at the banquet.  . Consistency, Tnpu Art a.Jewel I.  After shaving -driven all.Sunday.  night and nearly all day Monday  from  Piticton to Greenwood, Rev.  William  M.  Rochester,  B. A., of  Winnipeg,   associate secretary of  the Lord's Day Alliance, delivered  an interesting, comprehensive and  forcible address in the Presbyterian  church Monday night on theLord'd  Day Act.���������Boundary Creek Times.  Why should the associate secre*'  tary deem it necessary to travel on  the Sabbath  Day ?    Is tbe day of  rest    for    human   beings   only?  Should dumb animals be driven all  Sunday night in order that the associate eecretary may inflict himself on a law abiding community  Monday   evening?      If the Rev.  Rochester were sincere he would  not commence a journey on the  Lord's Day.   He would spend the  day   of rest  in   meditation   anil  prayer; and commence bis journey  on   Monday.    Consistency  in  aa  necessary in the lives of saints as of  sinneri. The man who would commence a journey of 80 utiles on tho  Lord's Day, cannot be considered  a   vei y   eouaistent  advuoiuhe   of  Suuday observance.

Harris, of Yoakum, sends  the Beeville Bee tho following and  it would be well for everybody to  rember it:  Having rend each year of someone being fatally bitten by a rattlesnake in South Texas, I feel it my  duty, to give tin's remedy which  may save someone's life. Wherj  a person is bitten on or near the  foot or hand, fill a bucket with  coal oil until the wound is submerged. In a few minutes agr������en  substance will form on top of the  oil. Where bites cannot be submerged, apply a il<muel*rng thoroughly saturated in oil, changing  cloths often. I know of this remedy being tried several times in  North Texas and not even any  swelling resulting.  A TERRIBLE  PUZZLE  This is a bit puzzling I admit.  A correspondent of a provincial  paper, who: signs himself "Worried," says he. married a widow,  who had a daughter. His father  married this daughter. So. my  father became my son-in-law aud  my step daughter my mother, because she was my father's wife.  Some time after my wife had a  son. He was my father's brother-  in-law and my uncle, for he was  tho brother of my step-mother.  My father's wife���������that is my stepdaughter���������had also a son. He  was-, of course, my brother, and  also my grancHld, for ho was the  son of my daughter. My wife was  my grandmother, because she was  my father's wife's���������that is my  mother's mother. So I am at the  same time the husband and the  grandchild of my wife, and as the  husband of a person's grandmother  is his grandfather, it seems that I  have become my own grandfather.  A SAD MIX  An old colored man stole a pig  and after getting home with the  animal knelt ,to pray before retiring. His wife heard him praying  to the Lord to forgive him for  stealing the pig.

Just wait there forafewmin-  utes until I look up your record,  and St. Peter went inside and  closed tho gate.

It is paid  that every five minutes or ko Uncle  Potter or some other prominent  citizen rings up the Herald office  over the telephone and gives the  .young newspaper a string of locals.  Thus she also has a number of unpaid reporters on her staff and finds  it unnecessary to travel over the  town for the purpose of gathering  local news. Miss Lancaster probably is the only woman in the  country who conducts a modern  and up-to-date weekly 'newspaper  without the necessity of having  paid emplo3'cs and a weekly payroll.

A visitor to the office the  day after the funeral found the  editor and his staff talking about  their loss disconsolately. It has  been a sad loss, friends, thevisitor  said, a sad loss indeed ! He sighed  aud looked about the room. And  I am pleased to see he.went on,  that you commemorate the melancholy event by hanging up crape.  Opie Bead frowned, crape? be  aaid.

You kuow it is  said that; Irismen never commit  suicide, and when the argument  was advanced in a crowd of that  nationality he was so unstrung  that ho decided to show his opponents that Irishmen do sometimes  commit a rash act. He accordingly disappeared, aud the man  who employed him started a  search. When he got to tbe bam  he looked up toward the rafters  and saw his man hanging with a  rope around his waist.  What arc you up to, Pat? ho  asked.  Oi'm hanging meself, hegobs!  th'1. Irishman replied.  Why don't you put it around  your neck ?

P., for Yale-  Cariboo,  paid  a short visit to the  city last week,  interviewing  his  henchmen and concerting plans for  the future.     It is. understood that  Mr. Ross was not at all prepared to  eat humble pie on the score of his  notable failure to press the interests of the Okanagan upon the attention  of the government during  the past two sessions.    Instead, he  carried   matters with such a high  hand that his   faithful adherents  were  fain   to swallow their grievances  at   a   gulp and "take back  water"  with almost ludicrous celerity.      The   plausible Mr.   Ross  then salved their somewhat ruffled  feelings   with  a glittered array of  promises,    appropriations    for   a  canal through the "Railway," ��������� A  Dominion   public   building   at   a  cost of 825,000,  the extension of  the   telephone to Lumby, etc., etc.  ���������Vernon News.

Don't they know you might  poison some one ?  There is no danger of that  madam; what can I do for you ?  I think I had better go to the  store down the street.
