Property   Steadily   Improving  and Showing More Ore.  "We have now two or three million  tons of ore in sight in the Rawhide  mine," said Manager VV. C. Thomas,  of the Dominion Copper Co., on  Thursday to the Pioneer man. "In  fact, we have ore enough to last us  for twenty years, even though we do  not develop any more, which, by . the  way, we are constantly doing."  By7 courtesy of Mr. Thomas, the  Pioneer man visited the Rawhide,  Supt. Chas. Rundberg also being iii  the party. The Pioneer man recollects  that about two years ago M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer, in a report on  the    Rawhide,   estimated   that   there  were a million tons of ore available i The system of operating the Raw>-  there. But with, development, and ' hide has been somewhat changed, also\  notwithstanding that the mine has been There are six tunnels on the. property;  on the shipping-list steadily since, the  amount now available has doubled or  trebled���to say nothing of what the  future may show up.  As a matter ofy, fact, the first few  months of development at the Rawhide did not show what was hoped for,  but, contrariwise, the last few months  have proved the mine to be one of the  best in the camp, and the management  of the Dominion Copper Co. is mighty  well pleased at the prospects and  actual condition of the property. And  the Pioneer man, while not laying  claim to any special metallurgical  knowledge, after going all through and  over the property, must agree with Mr.  Thomas���for even a newspaper  man |  and handling the ore is now done by  making raises from the lower levels;  dropping the ore in chutes from several  hundred feet above, running it out to  the ore bins, and thus effecting not a  little in economy of handling. Foreman George Johns has from 100 to  125 men employed, and -has ' not the  least difficulty in furnishing the 700  tons daily wanted at the smelter, whenever the reduction works can'handle it  and the C. P. R. can furnish the ore  dumps. In fact the ore bunkers nre  kept filled with a thousand tons of ore  continually, and the development is  kept far ahead of the requirements.  To the.lay man, or, for that matter, to  the practical miner, the company seems  THEY CHEERED  \ FOR HAYWOOD  Phoenix Miners Hold  Monster Parade.

Consequently, there is every  reason to believe that Mr. Thomas is  not a whit too sanguine about the  Rawhide mine.  When development of the Rawhide  was first undertaken; experience showed that the first ore encountered in the  gigantic ore body .ran pretty low in  copper, scarcely one per cent, or 20  pounds of copper| to the ton. But  latterly, when the ore has been penetrated to a greater extent with long  adits and crosscuts the ore is running  close to 40 pounds of copper per ton,  aside from gold and silver values.  best assets is in the Rawhide mine.  One thing lays emphasis on this.  The Granby Co. is developing the  Gold Drop mine adjoining, and righr  on the Rawhide sideline it has a  splendid lace of ore, proving the ore  body of the Rawhide to be larger and  better than before known. Then the  Snowshoe is also a close neighbor,  with a large and promising ore body.  All of which does not hurt the Rawhide in the least. The 80,000 tons of  ore thus far extracted from the Rawhide is but a drop in the bucket compared to what this property can and  will do in the future.  *^d$tSS!CAi*S^S*C*^***'  ^msilasaasaaasai^s  Grocery Dep  Morreirs Hams and Bacon:  *��  bi  You will never know what'' a difference there is in Cured Meats until  you try MORRILL'S SUGAR  CURED,    CORN     FED    MEAT.

Haywood, secretary of the Western Federation cf Miners, had been acquitted at  Boise, Idaho, of the charge of killing  former Governor Frank Stuenenberg.  In the afternoon the news was corroborated, and preparations were started for an impromptu celebration of the  event by the laboring men of the  camp. They immediately got busy,  and about eight o'clock that evening  held the largest parade that has ever  been seen in Phoenix. It was estimated that close to a thousand men  were in' the line of march, which,  headed by the Phoenix Fire Brigade  band, marched through the principal  streets of the city.   Meantime bonfires  had been started  On  the  surrounding I   am - this sedtion for a momh  mils, which lighted up the entire city.  A new'office building and warehouse  will be constructed on the Idaho flat  before the snow flies.  Both railways have been "falling  down" this week, making the total output from Boundary mines somewhat  less than usual.  From all accounts, the Brooklyn  mine is showing up larger and better  ore bodies than ever before, and is far  from being a worked out property. ���'.  Boundary's ore exhibit, sent to the  Winnipeg exhibition through theenter-!  prise of the Greenwood board of trade,  has been attracting a great deal of  favorable attention in the prairie metropolis.  Diamond drilling has been resumed  at the Granby mines, Boyles Bros., the  contractors, having started again this  week up in the woods on the Monarch  claim, where it is understood some  deep holes will.be bored.  A new intermediate tunnel, between  the' long Curlew tunnel and the main  workings, is being driven by contract  at the Gold Drop. The tunnel will  reach a point wheie the raise from the  lower tunnel is being made.  P. V.

Whereas, the Government taxes paid  in the vicinity of l'hoenix now amount  to more tiiiin"f 100,000 per annum; and,  Wheieas, only an inadequate amount  haw tieen appropriiuecl for or spent < n  tlie roads in this vicinity for the lust  few vears ; therefore,  Be it resolved by the Municipal  Council of the city of Plioenix. that the  Provincial Government be respectfully  requested to take steps as soon as  possible to ho alter the said wagon road  that it shall be in passable condition  ami not a menace to public safety.  The taxable property, according to  the report of the assessor, for this year  and for 1906, is as follows:  SCHOOL���OUTSIDE  CITV.

Wooster and two chil  dren spent several days here this week,  to escape the intense heat of Grand  Forks.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., returned  last Saturday from a visit to Toronto  and New York.  Local Manager Hodges, of the Gran  by Consolidated, and family have been  spending some time at Hayden lake, a  resort near Spokane.  Mrs. Forbes Kerby, of Grand Forks,  came up Sunday to find the coolest  place in the Boundary during the  heated season���and succeeded.  William Spier, manager of the  Eastern Townships Bank at Grand  Forks, was here Wednesday, escaping  the terriffic heat of the valley town.  J. A. McMaster has returned from a  visit of inspection to his mining claims  in the Lardeau country. He says  mining is quiet in that district, but  that lumbering is literally booming.  Arthur S. Williamson and James  Ollason, of Vancouver, who recently  spent a week in Phoenix, returned  again from the Terminal City on  Thursday, and will spend a couple of  weeks longer in the Boundary. They  report business livelier than ever in  Vancouver.  Eagles to Have a Band.  Phoenix Aerie No. 158, Fraternal  Order of Eagles, has decided to have  a brass band, and 14 instiuments, to  cost ahout $1,000, have been ordered  from Toronto. They are expected to  arrive before the first of September,  when a competent instructor will be  engaged, and regular practice begun.  The organization is being gotten up  for the amusement of the members, a  number of whom are musicians.  Still another company operating in  the copper fields of the Boundary has  declared a dividend, this time it being  by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd., and the dividend amounts to approximately $120,-  000, and was payable en August  1st.  The Consolidated company has a  capital of $5,500,000, in $100 shares.  Of this amount, up to a short time  since there were issued 48<338 shares,  although it is understood that more of  the treasury shares have now been  issued. Dividends have been paid  quarterly by this company, at the late  of 10 per cent per annum, and the  dividend paid this week is the sixth  sent out at two and one-half per cent  per quarter, and makes a total of about  $714,000 so far paid to shareholders of  this company.  The Consolidated Co. is the owner  of the Trail smelter, the Center Star  and War Eagle groups of mines at  Rossland, the St. Eugene mine at  Moyie, and numerous other properties.  It also has a lease and bond on the  Snowshoe mine in this camp, and has  purchased the Phoenix Amalgamated  group and taken options on some  twenty other claims near Phoenix.  It is said that the properties are  looking well, and that it would not be  surprising if the dividend rate was increased before the end of this year.  Collector Whittaker, of His Majesty's  customs, reports receipts of $1,850 at  the Phoenix office for the month of  July.  Owing to increase of business Bob  Horrell, the tailor, has added another  to his force, P. F. Keillor, a former  employee, coming from Claresholni,  Alberta.  Mike Dulovich, a miner who fell  into a chute at the Mother Lode mine  some weeks ago, died last week Friday  at the Sisters' hospital, Greenwood, and  was buried last Sunday.

The parade, led by President W. J  Louttitt, of Phoenix Miners' Union  No. 8, mounted, stopped at the Miners'  Union opera house, and that capacious auditorium was crowded as never  before to listen to the addresses and  exercises. In fact,.it was shortly im-  "ossible to gain admission to the  room.  Mr. Louttitt occupied the chair and  introduced the speakers. Among  those who made addresses weie R. D.  Mitchell,'John Riordan, Henry Heid-  inan, etc., the talks being- along the  lims of congratulations to organized  labor at the successful outcome of the  'rial.  Harry fames had charge of the  musical and literary part of the programme, acting as accompanist also.  Those who sang were Marry James,  John Vivian, Jack Fee, Etta Murray  and Ada Pierce, Mr. Hyslop and E.  aP.; Shea,.giving., spice . and. interest to  the proceedings. Tr was'near midnight  when the meeting broke up.  Mr.   Haywood,  whose home  is   in  Denver, after being nearly two years in  jail,  charged  with   complicity   in   the  murder of Mr. Steunenberg, and after  having a trial that lasted 80   days and  attracted the attention of the civilized  world, was declared not  guilty.    One  Harry   Orchard   confessed   to   com  plicity himself in  this and a score of  other crimes, and efforts were made to  fasten them on  Haywood, Moyer and  Pettibone.    The   jury,   however,   declared otherwise, and Haywood is now  a free man.    Haywood, C. H.   Moyer  and Pettibone were literally kidnaped  in   Colorado and taken to Idaho to  stand trial, where it is now acknowledged by both sides that  Haywood,  whose case came first, had a  fair trial  by Judge Wood and the jury of  12  men.    Moyer  was   held   in   $25,000  bail,   furnished    by    Butte    Miners'  Union.    Pettibone was   not admitted  co bail.    Organized  labor   everywhere  has been making great demonstrations  over the outcome.    .  Yesterday the first machine drill was  started up at the War Eagle by the  Consolidated. Open cuts and surface  work is actively in progress.  Of a total of ix, 160 tons reduced  this week at the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter, 7,246 tons was Mother Lode  ore; 3,172 tons custom ore; 195 tons  Napoleon; 471 tons Oro Denoro; 13  tons Emma, and 63- tons- Mountain  Rose.  -.:.��������� -���������.  W. E.

At present the matte from  Boundary Falls is being blown up to  blister copper by the converters of the  B. C. Copper Co.  Assurances have been given by  Supt. Coleman, of the C. P. R., that  100 steel ore dumps have left Montreal  for the Boundary for the ore traffic of  this section. The mine managers have  heard stories like this before, and will  be glad if the C. P. R. can make good  on the report this time���if it does not  take away other ore dumps now in  commision.  A. B. Hood, treasurer of the Cariboo-McKinney Lessees, visited the  mine last Sunday, and reports matters  moving along there in better shape.  The mill is now running steadily on  double shift, and the syndicate has  about decided to refit and put the remaining ten stamps in operation as  soon as possible. Mr. Hood feels  much encouraged at the outlook at the  old Cariboo, which was the first mine  in these parts to pay dividends. About  20 men are now employed there under  Supt. Ahier, a man thoroughly versed  in that kind of mining and milling.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

When in December, 1903, the  Granby Co. declared its first dividend,  amounting to $133,630, it was a source  of' congratulation, not only to those  directly interested in that company,  but to every resident of Boundary.  For it proved conclusively that our low  grade copper ores could be worked  with a profit.  The question of what to do about  the alarming influx of Japanese in  British Columbia, is one that is disturbing the good people of Vancouver  not a little. In fact, they are almost  up in arms because more than 1,000  arrived in June, and probably twice as  many in July. At this rate the 5,000  already in this province will soon be  doubled and trebled. They come  from Honululu.  It will be remembered that.in  past  years the provincial  government has  enacted legislation calculated to keep  out the Japanese coolie from  British  Columbia, but each law so placed on  the statute  books was disallowed at  Ottawa, for "Imperial reasons," it was  said.    Now the strongest supporters of  the Laurier government are the loudest  in   their demands  that   the   Ottawa  authorities take some action  to stop  the invasion of this  undesirable class  of, immigrants.   ���      .        . .y  On top ol all this' comes the news  that the Japanese in Vancouver are  asking that. a Japanese postoffice jbe  established in the: terminal city, and  as a coast paper puts it, they will soon  be asking for Japanese  mail  carriers,  In January, r 906, when 1 japanese   postoffice   clerks,   Japanese*'  the Granby Co. began  paying   regular po]icemen, Japanese courts, Japanes  quarterly dividends of $405,000 each,'-   -  it   was then  a   cause   of still   greater  felicitation. Since that time that com  pany has kept up the dividends at that  rate, every three months, and so far  has paid out over $2,500,000 to the  shareholders. Doubtless no one thing  has given greater confidence in the  outside world of the richness and permanency of the Boundary.  A few days ago the British Columbia Copper Co., Ltd., another of  our important copper producers, declared its initial dividend, and expects  to pay them hereafter quarterly, like  the Granby. This dividend amounts  to $201,200, and the announcement  was received with many expressions of  satisfaction in this district, even by  those not fortunate enough to. ..own  shares in the company.  Both of these companies are . in a  position to keep up the   present  dividend rate for a long time to come, we  are assured, and   from what is known  of the great ore zones, there  seems to  --be no doubt whatever on  this   point.  They have ample ore  reserves  for de-  ' cades to come, have modern and complete reduction works and they  are in  competent hands all around.  'I'he third big copper producer of the  judges and representatives. In fact,  the little brown men are becoming a  trifle chesty, and there seems no way  of stopping the influx.  It is an interesting question and one  fraught with great consequences to this  province. At Ottawa no steps have  been, taken to limit the arrivals; of  Japanese, as it might make an Jnter-  natipnal question of it. On -the ..other  hand, residents of coast cities are  strong in their denunciation of the law  that permits their arrival in unlimited  numbers. Sir Wilfrid Laurier is indeed  between the devil and the deep blue  sea, on this Japanese question. It  remains to be seen whether ths provincial government will not take a hand  in the matter and bring it to a head.  According to a resident of Phoenix,  who spent several duys last week in the  upper  North   Fork  camps,  the  only  property   of   importance   now   being  operated on a considerable scale is that  of the Maple Leaf Mines, Ltd., H. \V.  Voung iiiind   A.. J.   Fee,   two   of  the  owners,  being on   the  ground.    The  usual amount assessment work is going  on in that district, arid some favorable  results in ore. showings is the outcome  thus far; but   most  of the owners oi  well known mines are waiting for the  completion of the railway now  building, in'order that   machinery  may  be  taken to that district at something like  reasonable cost.  The Maple Leaf Mines, Ltd., which  has headquarters at Grand. Forks and  branch office at Vancouver, consists of  six claims.    A year ago the Dominion  Copper   Co.,   through   some   of   its  officials, had a working  bond  on   the  group,   and   did   some   work   there.  Later the present company was formed  by tbe'owners, and a vigorous  policy  of development has been pursued since  I work   was; started .by  the company.  Thus far development has been mostly  surface work, stripping arid open cuts.  One cut has opened up a good looking  body of ore.some .65  feet in  length,  assaying up to 20% in copper.  Work is now being confined to a  tunnel, however, which is in about 85  feet, with 50 feet vertical depth.- Later,  as soon as the boiler now en route, is  installed, it is the intention to drive  another tunnel lower down the hill, so  as to get greater depth on the ore body  when reached. This boiler is being  hauled in by horses irom Grand Forks,  and in a month it should be on the  ground and ready , fori use, it being  possible to operate from three to five j  drills with it. Then the force will be  increased. ,  The Maple Leaf is located just  above the Gloucester townsite, which  is about three miles beyond Franklin  City. The company is closing a deal  for water rights and a smelter site adjoining the Gloucester ' townsite, wi th  the intention everitually'of erecting reduction works close to th& mine.  The McKinly^and Gloucester mines,  as well as many prospects were visited.  Nothing is going. on.'. at thevfirst . two,  the bond-which-'P. A.

The stage-line from Grand  Forks gives . connection and ���:< mail till  the railways is,completed, and (he new  wagon road from LFranklin:-'fo"'-GI'ou-  cester is a great convenience to mining  men. ��� ���"        .

M.  Campbell.    It is  labeled  by  the excellent California publication, "Part of  British Columbia."    Many think that,  from a   metallurgical, standpoint, it is  the most important part of. this   province today;'..;'. As showing the  value of  such a map, at least 25,000 copies of  the Pioneer production  have  thus far  been printed, arid in their wide distribution   have, shown just   where  the  boundary is and  what  it  has  in the  shape of towns, smelters, mines, watercourse,   railways,    power    lines,   etc.  Some think it one of- the   best  advertisements that tfi'e Boundary ever had.  lias vfftood the Test  The approval of tho public is 1  test of merit.

Nelson           |Northport      Marysville   Trail   As is well known, the Kettle Valley  railway has been at work on its North  Fork extension for a year. The grade  is completed to a point a couple of  miles beyond Lynch creek, and the  rails havebeen put down to.the Eagle  City bridge at the crossing of the river.  A gang is at work on the bridge, and '  it will be completed very shortly, when  the tracklayers will resume work, laying  the steel to Lynch creek, some twenty  miles from, Grand Fprks, and far  enough to save the cash subsidy for the  line.        .  In all probability the railway will not  be completed to Franklin camp till  next year, but when this happens it  should give no small impetus to mining  all, through the. North Fork region.  Many poles and logs are being gotten  out by crews of men ,rn the North  Fork, and the first shipments over the  new railway, when ready for traffic,  w'll be of that character.  A stop was made at the ranch of  K. A.., Brown, .on the way, who is so  well known as "Volcanic" Brown, from  a mine of that name which he located  years ago, and which can  be seen for  miles either up or down the river.   As  usual, Mr. Brown was hospitality itself,  and   discoursed' on   the   marvellous  mineral   potentialities   of the   North  Fork, still insisting that, when it is developed as'ir,!|ShouId be, it will  require  la   string  of smelters  from   there  to  Giand Forks, some 15 miles, more or  less, and the united efforts of not less  than three transcontinental railways, to  handle and  smelt  the  ores  that  will  then be produced from that particular  section.  Still another mining company operating in the Boundary has paid another dividend-���the Consolidated  I Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada,  Ltd., which is operating the Snowshoe  and Phoenix Amalgamated mines.  This dividend issat the rate of two and  one-half per cent 'quarterly, and  amounts to $120,000. The first thing  we know, all the extensive copper producers of the Boundary will be paying  the shareholders profits. It is the  very best evidence of the prosperity  that is shining on the Boundary.  This week Phoenicians have had a  chance to see the people flocking from  the  sunbaked  valleys,   near  here, to  Phoenix, to enjoy a delightful   climate  ���neither too warm nor. too cold.    By  dint of  hard   work, the   mercury  this  week did get up as high as 85  or 86  degrees  in   Phoenix, and  one  could  sympathize witfr'those who were forced  to stay in towns but a few miles away  from here, when Old   Sol brought the  thermometer around or above the 100  mark.

The average man, if asked to name,  offhand, the uses ol" copper, would be  likely to reply thai the metal was used  mainly for coining pennies and 'making  'win-, yet these uses employ barely  more than a quarter of tlie copper that  is produced. On second thought he  might smile at naming copper coinage  as an important consumer of the metal,  yet his first thought would he nearer  right than his second, for the Chinese  Empire has used fifty thousand tons of  copper for making new coins, within  Ihe past two years, thereby increasing  the circulating medium of the country  to the extent of four ounces for each  inhabitant���for while filty thousand  ions of copper is a large quantity of  metal, sufficient to load a thousand  freight cars of the heaviest type used  on American railroads, it is but a  quarter of an avoirdupois pound per  capita, when divided among four hundred million people.  Only the expert, or those engat.ed  most actively in the copper industty,  have the slightest idea of the diversified uses to which copper is put, as  shown by a chapter on the uses of the  metal in the new edition of the Copper  Handbook, published by Horace J.  Stevens, of Houghton, Michigan. According to this book copper enters into  almost every form of human activity,  and the multiplicity of its uses is most  surprising. Electric light, pjwer and  traction are immense consumers of the  metal in the form of wire, and telephones and telegraphs find it indispen-  sible, yet electricity requires only a  trifle more than a quarter of the metal  made. The engineering trades consume more than half of all the copper  produced, mainly in the form of brass,  i  c^eo *j^m^�� xl>��^�� *>���<* o- 5  but there are about a score of friction  metals and alloys, each having its  specific use, into which copper enters  as a component part.  The building trades are enormous  consumers of copper, and this sort of  consumption is increasing rapidly.  Copper roofs, cornices, and fronts  adorn the exteriors of business buildings in thousands of towns, while for  interior work the great majority of  modern buildings use copper, brass or  bronze locks, knobs and butts. Brass  pipes, nickeled, are in modern bathrooms and lavoratories, and brass and  bronze chandeliers, gas and electric  fixtures are almost invariable. A dozen  or more other veiy common domestic  uses of copper are mentioned.  In the manufacturing world the uses  of copper and brass are innumerable.  One concern in the Naugatuck valley  of Connecticut buys copper in ten-ton  lots, monthly, solely for the making of  water-dials, all of the better-grade dials  being of copper, enameled. The  common pin requires hundred of tons  of copper yearly, insignificant as a  single pin may seem. Bals for . shoes  and tips for shoe-laces require metal  by the scores of tons, and the thin  metallic tips on rubber-tipped lead-  pencils are responsible for a surprising  depletion in the stock of the metal.  In addition to the consumption of  the metal itself, tens of thousands of  tons of copper sulphate are required  for the arts of manufactures, and for  horticulture purposes, in spraying fruit  trees, bushes and vines. It is very  evident, from a perusal of the book ;in  question, that copper plays a vital, and  a lar more important part than commonly supposed, in Twentieth Century  civilization.

C. Thomas, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., is authority 'for  the statement that it requires three  days to get a train of Idaho ore from  Phoenix to the company's smelter at  Boundary Falls, a distance of say 2 1  miles. And this is accomplished  through the united efforts of two great  railways, the C. P. R. and the Great  Northern. Thus it will be seen that  smelter managers, as well as railways,  have their troubles, in these times of  coal, coke, ore dump and power shortage. Just think of it; an average of  seven miles per day, and two railway  companies working on the job, too.  One would think that the trainmen  would ^row dizzy at such a fearful  speed���a mile every three or four  hours.  O  Smith Curtis has been looking over  copper properties near Kamloops.

On Thursday evening, August 15th,  the friends of Miss S. E. Howe will  tender her a farewell, en. the occasion  of l.er resigning. It will be held at  Miners' Union hall and all are invited.  Last Sunday Phoenix Lodge No. 28,  K. of P. held its annual church parade,  going to the St. Andrews' Presbyterian  church in a body. The pastor, Rev.  Samuel Lundie, preached a sermon  appropriate to the occasion.  Early .in the.season there was considerable" enthusiasm over baseball in  the Boundary, but it appears that all  interest in the game for this season has  been lost. Perhaps' the .100 degree  weather in the valleys had something  to do with it. -  ._������ roads  the city and around here generally, outside the city limits, are to have  attention,'as. well as the much used  and exceedingly dangerous road from  the C. P. R. station to beyond the  Rawhide mine. Regarding the latter  Mr. Spraggett states that he has had  no orders, as had been hoped, to  divert that road so as to avoid the  Snowshoe, Gold Drop,^ Curlew and  Ra\yhidetmmes:and the several railway crossings and tunnel mouths; but  that if anything is to be done now  about it, orders will have to be received very shortly from Victoria. |  The new Kettle Valley lines station  in  Cnind   Forks  lias  been  couipleled.  A night operator has been added to  the C P. R. station force in 1'lmeiux,  malting four employees altogether,  due to the heavy ore traffic.  W. P. Tiemey & Co. are putting the  finishing touches to the $25,000 Rawhide spur of the C. "P. R., which they  have been grading all summer. Tbe  ties are all on th* ground.  D. C. Coleman, K'ootenay-Boundary  superintendent for the C. P. R-, came  up as far as Hartford Junction Wednesday, looking over the ground there as  a place at which to make up the long  ore trains from Phoenix.  Reaching the Gold Drop mine with  a spur has occupied the attention of  the Great Northern-engineers. It is a  pretty safe thing to wager that they  will eventually get there, the talk now  being a spur from Glenside.  It is a question whether C. P. K-  men or those of the G.N.care the least  about the mail sacks they handle to  Phoenix. Thursday not a sack of any  kind came in by the G. N., where usually there are several sacks daily.  Track has been laid to the trestle  on the Victoria spur by the Great  Northern, a distance of about a mile  from the start. Timbers are arriving  for the trestle, which is to be 532 feet  in length, and the employees of Porter  Brothers are expected to arrive Monday  to put the bridge up. It will require  about ten days.  The rumor is now current that the  C. P. R. has acquired the Midway &  Vernon charter and will proceed with  the construction of that link between  the Boundary and the rich Okanagan  country. It still lacks confirmation,  but it would give the C. P. R. a short  line from this district to the coast, and  make the G. N. hustle to get the  passenger traffic which it now largely  holds between Boundary points and  the coast.

The well known' R. Meyerhoff  ranch, west of Midway, has been sold  at $30 per acre to Nelson parties, being one of many land deals made recently in the Kettle river valley,  Ed Allen, who Hved in the Boun-  ���dary~for-a-rium6er dfyears, particularly  at the B. C. and Emma mines, has  been in. the city this week, having just  returned from the White Horse Copper camp in the Yukon, and will start  back there next Monday.  Mr. Allen states that as a copper  camp   White  Horse  is   one   of   the  coining wonders.   Byron White, owner  of the Slocan Star, in the Slocan  district, bought for $r4,ooo   the  Pueblo  group   of copper   claims.    He   took  seven men in ,with   him, and   in three  months got out 700 tons   of ore that  yielded seven   per  cent  copper at the  Tyee smelter, .Vancouver island.   This  group   was  originally  owned   by   the  B. A. Corporation (Whittaker Wright.)  Col.   Thomas,, representing   Pittsburg  capitalists,   has   bonded   280   claims,  and has already invested some $2,000,-  000,   with   the  intention   of   making  further   payments   of  $r,ooo,coo   or  more.     His   syndicate   will   probably  erect a smelter in that district for the  treatment of copper ores of the north.  The White Pass   &  Yukon   railway  officials are now looking into the matter  of building a branch line  from White  Horse  to  the copper district, and  it  will   doubtless   be   built   in  the  near  future.
