For the past 4 years we have been selling the product of the big milling companies, and we could not satisfy our customer with flour. Someone always had  a complaint���every little while a sack  would be returned to us. We investigated and found that ihe big milling com-  panysgot their wheat from all, over the  Northwest' getttng wheat of all grades.to-  gether, consequently their flour could not  be uniform. Then we made further enquiries and found the best wheat���the  prize wheat���came from what is known as  the Oak Lake wheat belt in Manitoba.  Then we decided to try a car of Anchor  Brand fluur manufactured at Oak Lake.  This flour is, made by Leitch Bros.in what  is conceded to be one of lhe.ni.ost modern  mills on the continent and only. No. 1  Hard, Red Fyfe, Oak Lake wheat is used  therefore it is impossible for anything but  a flour of top quality to be produced.  We are sole agents for this flour our  prices are  25> M Sack $1.00  The efforts of the city' council men  of Phoenix to retire' to private life  have been attended with considerable  misgivings and uncertainties. The  peculiar condition in which the members of the council found themselves,  after having handed in "their resignations, due to the fact that there appeared to be no statute or precedent  by which they could . be guided, or  which was thought to fit the singular  existing conditions, made it difficult for  them to determine how to letJ, go,, or  actually end their official existence.  Wednesday, however, they determined,  upon further advice of City Solicitor  Kerr, to meet and accept" their own  resignations.  It now appears that Mayor Rum  berger has "conformed to the demand of the late city council and suspended Chief Flood. But the mayor  is only one member of the police commission. Judge Williams, holding  office on the commission by virtue of  provincial authority, still insists, it is  said, on keeping Flood in position, and  undei whose instructions the latter is  supposed to be now acting.  The city clerk has received a letter  from the government requesting a  statement of the grounds upon which  the resignation; of..*judge '.Williamslis  demanded. ' The clerk was instructed  to forward the.'testimony and decisions in the Flood-Chase case,.as sufficient reason for the cbuncil's position,  while the whole detail of the matter  will be placed before the government  by letters from the individual members of the late council. f  It is to be regretted that so much  strife has been engendered by an apparent determination on the part of  the provincial authorities to build up  its party throughout the province; by  the appointment and maintenance in  office, m the interior municipalities, of  a class of. men whose greatest recom  mendation was partizan zeal, and this  in many instances, in spite of local  protestations by Conservatives as well  as Liberals.  It may be said, in this connection,  that Mayor Rumberger, who seems to  have evinced a desire to do right, is  more blameable for his sins of omis  sion than commissions. With him its  one of two things���he either : lacks  backbone, or his party zeal outweighs  his aim to serve the local public. He  seems to have given way to party zeal  The heavy, wind storm Thursday  night drove the^rajn through the walls  of the Haray4^Kerizie buiidinig ,at  the upper vrindoWs, on the east side,  and had not -thd*.

Mioater of Nickel Plate Mine Looking for  Site���May Oo Across Line and Bnlld  Railway.  The Palmer Mountain Prospector,  published at Loomis, Wash., says:  Some few weeks ago Chas. A. An-  drus, of the Six Eagles, and Munroe  Harman of the Ruby, made a trip to  Hedley, B. C., and there met M. K,  Rogers, the enterprising manager of  the Nicklo Plate, undoubtedly the  greatest mine in British Columbia.  From him it was learned that : the  Nickle Plate people have been unable  to secure a smelter site at the mine,  owing to the fact that an Indian reserve covers the available land, and  the Canadian parliament will grant  the company no concessions. At that  time Mr. Rogers stated that if he, had  to haul his ore to a smelter located  at even a little distance from the mine,  he would just as leave, in fact would  much rather, haul it across the line into the United States when once loaded on the cars. He then and there  declared that if the powers that be  would not grant him land his company  would build a smelter in Okanogan  county, and construct a railroad to  that smelter and on out to connect  with the Spokane Northern ,  The following from the Bellingham  Herald regarding the intention of the  Great Northern railway in building its  main line; direct 'from ; Bonners Ferty  via'Marcus:'to^-Miiwater..-..on. Bellingham bay, instead of the circuitous  route, is not surprising to those who  are acquainted with the topography of  the country. ;  J.-J. Hill has spent $500,000 in  surveying different passes, through the  mountains in order to reach Bellingham bay. That is a statement accredited to Samuel Hill, the son-in-law  of James J. Hill,. the great railway  magnate; also to all intents and purposes is silently promoting a mighty big  railroad scheme to terminate, in the  near future on tidewater and from best  information obtainable that point is  Bellingham.  This story is "not a mere rumor.  The information is given hy a reliable  citizen of this city. He says that  Samuel Hill made such statement  since Christmas 1903, to a citizen of  Bellingham. In view of facts already  known as to the operations of J. J.Hill  in this section of the country, it is believed that the story said to have  emat'ed from Samuel Hill is correct.  It is believed to be a fact that J. J.  Hill is trying to get a cutoff on his  line to Bellingham bay, to save at least  a distance of 200 miles to tidewater  over the present route via Spokane.  That is also a statement made by one  who is very close to the president of  the Great Northern Railway company.  It long has been and is now believed  that the Great Northern is pointing toward Bellingham, and as the hand on  the dial of time moves around the belief is strengthened.  The fact must be born in mind that  some time ago J. J. Hill paid $1,000,-  000 for the famous McMahon franchise^ which, per se is a right-of-way  for a railroad down the Chiliwack river  from the Hope mountains on British  Columbia territory. The Hope mountains are practically a continuation of  the Cascade mountains. Hill's surveyors have been operating in these  mountains for two or three years, and  the $500,000 heretofore mentioned has  been spent in that region, as well as  recorinoitering on the American side.  After a thorough study of the intention by men able to ferret out plans of  this character, it is thought that Hill  has a scheme to build his road across  from Bonners Feny to Marcus. He  already has a road up the Kettle river  towards the Okanogan country and it  is said to be quite feasible for extending the line from the end of the present road via Chiliwack on a comparatively level grade to Sumas on the  American side of the line, and from  that international city to Bellingham,  where terminals would be established.  Calgary's Scandal.  As a result of the verdict given by  Chief Justice Sifton in the recent sale  of Calgary lots and revelations made  at the trial, at a meeting of the city  council Monday night, when the McDonald lot scandal was mentioned,  Mr. J. B. Smith, city solicitor, immediately resigned, and was followed by  Charles McMillan, city clerk. The  resignations were promptly accepted.  The Council then'-asked for the resignation of F.Exhani, city auditor.-  �������������<<��������������+������������������������������������������������������������  British Columbia Northern &  Mackenzie River R.

L. Martin was transacting busi  ness in Curlew a day or two this week.  Phoenix Aerie No. 158, Fraternal  Order of Eagles, will give a social concert and dance at Miners' Union hall  next Friday evening.  W. S. Doyle is now sufficiently recovered to be able to sit up occasion  ally, and it is believed will be able to  leave the hospital in a few days.  It is reported that Sandberg, the absconding debtor, telephoned from Republic Thursday, to parties in town  that he was going on a fishing tour for  a few days.  Owing to the broken up condition  of the wagon road between Phoenix  and Greenwood, the stages and  freight teams between the two points  have laid of the past week.  The electric storm Thursday night  caused the burning out of a transformer which drove the business houses  and residences back to the old standby, the coal oil lamp, for light.  At St. Andrews Presbyterian church  tomorrow the topic in the morning will  be "Nature's Awakening;" and in the  evening, "Worth the Price." The anthem "Refuge" will be sung by the  choir in the evening.  A very singular thing happened  Wednesday night, just at the moment  when the city council voted itself out  of office, the electric lights went out all  over town, and were not turned on for  an hour or so, due to trouble in Cas  cade.  Phoenicians have certainly enjoyed  a variety in weather this week. For  three days it was clear and hot, causing the melted snow to flow in torrents  of water down the hillsides. Thursday night an electric storm came on  suddenly, and it rained all night, while  Friday morning a snow storm set in,  covering everything with an inch of  sleet and slop.  Freshet waters are playing havoc in  many directions. To protect the city's  streets, two or three men have been  working night and day since the thaw-  set in, in order to keep the drains and  culverts clear. It is said that the bunk  and boarding houses at the Athelstan  have been undermined by water, and  that theii collapse is imminent. At  Greenwood the flood waters are said  to have already done considerable  damage.  In reply to representatives  of tha  British  Columbia  Northern &  Mackenzie River Railway  company,   who  asked if the British Columbia government would.supplement the Dominion  government's subsidy to the railway by  a substantial'provincial subsidy,   Premier McBride replied that if the company would deposit a guarantee forfeit  fund of $26,000 to insure the building  of the railway within a specified  time,  his government would make  the British Columbia Northern &   Mackenzie  River railway project the third of the  railway measures to be dealt with at a  special summer session of the legislature next June, when a suitable   subsidy in proportion to the grant by the  Dominion government, will be passed.  The   company's   agents    telegraphed  Jules,   Simon   &   Co.,   of  Chicago,  agents for Spyer & Co., of New; York,  London and Paris, asking if this  were  agreeable to the  principals.    A  reply  has been received that it is,  providing  the Dominion subsidy be  satisfactory.  The new railway will  traverse  British  Columbia's  northern   gold fields,  touching the   Peace,   Laird,  Stickene  and other gold bearing streams,  either  direct or by branches, and  give  communication with Dawson City  as well  as Port Simpson, which is expected to  become soon the great port for oriental steamers.    The new line is to  connect with the Grand Trunk Pacific in  the Pine River or Tete Jeune passes.  It is the most   important   railway project ever  mooted   in   the   Canadian  northwest.    The project is   backed by  immense financial resources.  Chas. Sandberg, who had been an  industrious and honored citizen of  Phoenix for some four years, took to  his heels Tuesday, and is no more, so  far as this community is concerned.  His departure was soon discovered, his  creditors, to the extent of $700 or  $8oc, were soon alarmed, and then began ah effort to cut off his flight before  he: reached the asylum for the oppressed, and criminals of all nations, in  Uncle Sam's domains. But Flood  was too slow, though he travelled in  state by rail, while Charles took the  cutoff route by Walker's line, and  gained his liberty still in possession of  the booty he had gotten from his confidential friends.  Besides the many mercantile concerns he ieft in the lurch, his Finlander  acquaintances trusted him as their  banker, and they also mourn his sudden departure with their funds. To  some firms in town Sandberg owed be  tween $300 and $400. The only t\^ '  bills he paid before his exit, was one  of about $2.50 to Thomas Brown, and  a small bar bill to Robt. Barr, of the  Butte hotel. Officer Flood started in  pursuit the same day, but the fugitive  was not to be found on the soft  cushions of a C. P. R. car, so the pursuers are disconsolate. Mrs. Sandberg  is still in town and declares she does  not know whither her husdand is  bound nor did she know of his; intended departure.  Latest Prices in Metals.

EVEN  A  JACKALS  Can   Discover  a Rich  Mine  Wealthy.  and  Become  The Bunker Hill & Sullivan Mining  company has just paid a $40,000 Apri  dividend. It has paid to date, $1,673-  000. The big ledge from which tht.se  profits were taken was discovered by a  donkey pawing turf away from the ore,  and that fact is recorded in the judical  records of Idaho.  It happened in this way: A party had  been prospecting. The food supply  was packed on the back of a donkey.  The prospector wearied of his search  for gold, desisted, turned the donkey  out to rustle for himself. Other parties found him running at large in the  mountains, and pressed him into like  service; he pawed the dirt and uncovered what proved later to be a great  mine. There was early day litigation  over the property, and judge Norman  Buck of the district court handed down  a decision saying: "From the evidence  ofthe witness, the court is of theopinion  that the Bunker Hill mine was discovered by a jackass, Phil O'Rourke and  N. S. Kellogg; and as the jackass was  the property of plaintiffs, Copper &  Peek, who turned the animal out, they  are entitled to half interest in the  Bunker Hill and a quarter interest in  the Sullivan claims.

Opposition to the building of the  Grand Trunk Pacific, is opposition to  the vital interests of British Columbia  especially and to Canadian interests  generally.  A polititical party that places party  expediency above the principle of the  greatest good to the greatest number  in the administration of public affairs,  is the party that should be kept safely  1   in the minority.  With all the scandallously wasteful  ness and profligate expenditure of pub  lie funds and resources in the endowment of the Canadian Pacific at its  inception; with all the lavish immunities and privileges granted it; with  all its tyrannical and extortionate practices, its building and operation has  been a great public benefit, on the  whole.  Even the Intercolonial railway, constructed purely as a political expediency, is proving a public benefit.  No national enterprise ever under  taken by the Dominion government  was so replete with favorable poten-  tialties for the development and upbuilding of northern Canada as is this  same Grand Trunk Pacific scheme.  And when it is remembered that its  launching is based upon plans and under safeguards evolved from past experiences found to be necessary to protect public interests, and maintain control by ,the government, the genera]  benefits to be .derived from its completion will be far greater than those  enjoyed from any railaway enterprise  on Canadian soil. Its entire length  from the Atlantic to the Pacific is  drawn mainly, through a vast virgin  territory with limitless stores of natural  wealth.  The U.S has had its day of attractiveness for the hordes seeking new fields  and pastures green. Northwestward the  great nomadic army is marching, Canada's growing season is on.  The proposal of the Dominion Government to build another transcontinental railway through its northern pos  sessions is being noised lo the ends of  Christendom. Already it has caused the  great current of immigration to flow  northward that will fill that broad expanse with a thrifty and desirable pop-  1 ulation. *     ,  The development of this great country will add millions of dollars' worth  of taxable property to the assets of  British Columbia and the territories,  thereby enormously enhansing the revenues of the general government, and  enlarging the field of eastern commercial centers.    The building of  the  . Grand Trunk Pacific will accomplish  *' this develpment as nothing else could,  - and will double the population of Canada in the next decade.  v' Why should not every well-wisher  of the Dominion give the proposal his  ' ��� hearty approval ?  Referring to  the   local  situation, it  may be said the city is in disgrace. It  has been disgiaced by the ncent acts  of its heretofore honored mayor, and  is now smarting under defeat at  the  hands of a one-man power, backed by  Victoiia.    'J he real situation is this:  Owing  to  trouble  between  Chief of  Police Flood and a denizen of the  tenderloin district and subsequent developments through the testimony of  witnesses under oath, the city council,  out   of   regard    for    common    decency,  demanded the summary  dis  missal of 'Chief Flood and  the resignation  of W. R. Williams , as Ploice  Commissioner and Police Magistrate.  Be it said to the credit of'L. Y Birnie,  when he discovered, the   questionable  intention of his colleagues on the Po  lice Commission, immediately resigned.  Tot these demands the mayor demurred,  but promised to remove Chief Flood.  A month passed and Flood was still in,  hence the wrath and resignation of the  city council last Wednesday night week.  It has been understood from street report, as no other information is obtainable, that Birnie's resignation has  been accepted at Victoria, although he  at this writing has had no official notification to that effect.   It is also reported that W. R.  Williams' resignation from the police commission had  been sent to Victoria,   and that it had  not been accepted.    Be this as it may  the soiid three are, by  the grace of  Victoiia authority, still in the saddle.  It has been intimated  by the  mayor  that the  names of James Punch and  Wm.  Delahay had been suggested to  the government as suitable timber for  the new commission, should one be  allowed.    The action of Mayor Rumberger, though highly respected in this  community,  has  added   little  to  his  credit in his apparent effoits to shield  and retain in office men who have lost  public confidence.    In  the meantime  Flood is parading as one  having authority in the city, and the  city is being guarded at night by a new star in  the police firmament.

' /! ;  RUSSIA - JAPAN  Matthhsof Interest about  The use of oil for fuel has   received  a new impetus by the record   recently  made   by   the  steamer    Nebraskan,  which arrived in New York harbjrlast  week, making the run from San Diego,  Cal., in 52 day��, having made but one  stop on the 13,000 mile journey, and  that only for the purpose of reporting  The average speed of the steamer was  10 .knots per hour.    This is said (o be  the most exhaustive test ever ms\de of  oil as fuel.    The steamer is  said to  have been using oil on   its   trips  be  tween San  Francisco and Honolulu,'  but this is the first test made  for this  long distance, and it is  considered to  have   been   highly  satisfactory.    The  Nebraskan left San Diego with  10,500  barrels of oil in her hold, and reached  New Voik with 1,200 of these uneon-  sumed.    Her stoker room . force   was  reduced from 12 men  to   3,   though  these were paid far higher wages  than  those  received by   ordinary   stokers.  Another advantage was the  fact that  three quarters of the   room   foimerly  needed for fuel was available for cargo  purposes, and  the oil  cost   considerably less than coal.  I thksk Belligerent Nations. k  The two new battleships ordered in  England by Japan, will be exceedingly  powerful. Their length, 445 feet will  exceed that of the most powerful battleships by 20 feet. In order to meet  the capacity of docking' accommodations, the beam and draught have been  fixed at 78 feet and 26 feet respectively. Each will have a displacement of  16,400 tons. The main battery, it is  stated, will be the most powerful yet  devised. They are to have a speed of  ro knots and will be able to discharge  II tons of projectiles per minute from  their main batteries. In addition to  the two battleships actually ordered  fapan is contemplating ordering two  more vessels of that description to be  built in Ixmdon.  Japan is not very rich,in'mineral  wealth. It produces quite a number  of mineral substances, her strongest  lines being in the non-metallic products  coal and salt. During 1902 Japan  mined 9,003,000 tons of coal, and upwards of $1,000,000 worth of salt. Of  metallic products,she produced 28,500  tons of copper and small quantities of  gold and silver. The Japanese an-  tomy mines are known the world over,  not so much for their output ofantomy  ore, but for the fact that the finest and  largest specimens of crystallized stib-  nite, antomy sulphide are produced  at these mines. Mineral cabnites find  valuable additions when these Japanese  stibnites are installed.  But the Russian emperor "is in a  different class. In >the Imperial budget  the' allowance for his household is figured at the meagre rate of about $8,000,-  000 a year, but that is merely the beginning of his, resources. He owns a  great part of Russia" as his private  property-���mines, forests' and illimitable stretches of arable lands. In  European ^Russia alone the strictly  private domains of the Imperial family  areas large as Indiana. The State  owns twenty times as much more, and  the Czar is the State. ' In Siberia the  Imperial resources are still more opulent. Most of the rich mines of gold,  platinum, and precious stones are  worked for the benefit of the Czar  and his family.  But beyond all this, the Emperor is  the absolute master of the national  treasury and all its varied resources of  income. In England* the King talks  in his speeches of ,"iny army," "my  navy" and "my exchequer," but all this  is understood to be a- legal fiction.  Everything is regulated by parliament,  and the King cannot touch a penny  that is not appropriated to his use.  But m Russia the Czar can speak of  "my "army" and "my navy" in" literal  fact. He could disband the whole  outfit if he chose,'and pocket the  money saved by the operation. His  civil list is simply the amount he sees  fit to dip out of the national treasury:  He could double or tripple it without  asking anybody's permission. The  whole treasury is his, and all the taxing  power of the empire}, to the limit of  the ability of his subjects to pay. Is  it not clear that the diffident young  Nicholas is the richest man in the  world ?  THE  Light Locomotives  For All I'urposes..

There are 88 properties on the list,  But about 40, of these have insignificant  claims. The remainder will average  over, 11,500, each, so that the monev  will be widely distributed.

TheRedSacket shaft of the Calumet & Hecla copper mine, Michigan,  is the deepest in the world. It has  taken nine years of day and nightwork  to sink it and has cost $2,500,000.  This shaft is vertical, but all the other  shafts pt;the Calumet & Hecla follow  the dip of the lode. Work on it was  started in 1889,,immediately after the  last of the three great underground  fires in the old workings of the mine,  which did damage of more than $1,-  000,000. Work has been continued  upon it since that time, and the shaft  stands without a parallel in mining. It  ;is 4,920 feet in depth, or 360 feet less  than a mile. It contains six compartments, each equal ,'in size to an  ordinary mining shaft, four of which  are nsed for hoisting rock and lowering timbers. One is utilized for the  ladders, and the sixth compartment  caries ihe wires and pipes for telephones'," light, power - water and com-  profsod air.  Taking Desperate Chances.  It is true that my contract colds  and recover from them without taking  any precaution or treatment, and the  knowlecge of this fact leads, others to  take their chances instead of giving  their colds the needed attention. It  should be borne in mind that every  cold weakens the lungs; lowers the  vitality, makes the system less able to  withstand each succeeding cold and  paves the way for more serious diseases.

The Kilo is essentially a  gold proposition, upon which $40,000  have already been expended in delop-  meht work.  ���The management of the Rambler-  Cariboo, .Slocan, gives tin' that tlie  ���edge has been struck in the crosscut  at tlie 800 foot level.

Johnson has been bonded, says the  Sandon Standard, to E. Savage, representing the American company which  has the lease 011 the Chapleau. The  bond is for upwards of $250,000. The  Legal is a gold'proposition, the ore  running $25,10 the ton. The bond is  for a year.  Val Simmons is back trom the Norway mountain section where he has  been for the past three months with  his partner H. S. Libby, of Greenwood,  doing development work on the Alice  N. mineral claim, located on Grenville  mountain, which is a part of the Norway mountain section, says the Nelson  News. This section has been more or  less operated for the past four or five  years, and has a number of promising  properties. Among these are the Cascade and the Bonanza groups and  others from which about 35 carloads  of high grade ore have been shipped.  It is claimed for the section that it has  never yet had a strong company to  operate its properties and that if failures have been made there it has been  due to the lack of capital rather than  to the quality of the ledges.  Best Cough Medicine For Children.  When you buy a cough medicine  for, small children you want one in  which you can place implicit confidence. You want one that not only  relieves but cures. You want one that  is unquestionably harmless. You want  one that is pleasant to take. Chamberlain's Cough remedy meets all of  these conditions. There is nothing so  good for the coughs and colds incident  to childhood. It is also a certain pre  ventive and cure for croup, and there  is no danger whatever from whooping  cough when it is given.
