The reg-  smaller than a four-ioom school building, should be erected, and offers a  fine site for it ��� in a good location.  Mr. Graves believes it would be short  sighted in the government to put up a  small building, now, when a much  larger one 'will: undoubtedly be required within a few.months.

C, Aug. 6.���In his first  speech on the floor of the house John  Houston, member for Nelson, declared himself a supporter of the  government, and proceeded to wake  things up generally. All the cabinet  except Hon. James Dunsmuir, the  premier, came in for general reflections in which the Esquimalt and  Westminster members were dubbed  mossbacks.  After the rising of the house Houston proceeded to town, and meeting  Rod Tolmie credited him with canine  descent, adding, "We'll fix you when  you come back to Kootenay." Rod  replied, "I'll fix you now," and proceeded to pommel him. A punch on  the jaw knocked him out. Some  minutes elapsed before consciousness  returned to the member from Nelson,  who was carried off in a hack spitting  blood and is said to have been seriously hurt.  Comedy Next Monday Night.  Naxt Monday evening "Caprice," or  "In Old Missouri," will be given at  Miners' Union hall by the same company that rendered "East Lynne" so  acceptably on Friday week. The  company comprises Nellie Millis,  Helen D'Este, Hazel Bancroft, F. J.  Miller, C. M. Wilson, George E. Mun-  day, W. A. Trousdale and J. G. Stuttz.  The play is said to be an excellent  comedy���one that anybody and everybody will enjoy. There are four acts,  as follows:    Act I.��� Laugh.    Act II  smelter.  The shaft in the Greyhound, Head-  wood camp, is. now-.'-down 3.2c feet,  and looking well.  J. P. Harlan lias received the nnal  payment of $11,500 on the Marguerite,  in Deadwood camp, from the Quebec  syndicate that took up the bond.  J. Taylor has completed assessment  work on the Sailor, adjoining the Eve  ningStar, in Wellington canyand found  some excellent rock, carrying grey copper.  The railway tunnel on the Snowshoe  is now in nearly 300 feet. I'ipe for  air has been laid to the tunnel and as  soon as the new boiler is running, air  drills will be used.  Eight men are working on the Strawberry, three miles from Eholt, the shaft  being down 125 feet. Some rich copper ore was recently found at this level.  Hewitt Bostcck, M. P., is said to be  one of the owners.  The raise in the east drift at the 100-  foot level of the War Eagle is now up  about 65 feet, and is showing excellent  copper ore. I twill be continued about  30 feet further to connect with the  small shaft sunk in ore close to the  blacksmith shop.  At the regular annual meeting of the  Pathfinder Mining Investment &  Reduction company held in Grand  Forks the following directors were  elected: Thos. I. Parkinson, Wm. A.  Pfiel'er. J. S. Cox, C.

There is already a four foot ledge in  sight. Development on the Hard!  Cash, adjoining, has also shown some  good, ledges.

The'new smelting concern will not  only handle the output of its own  properties, but will solicit custom  work. One advantage claimed for  the pyritic. process is the cheapness  with which ores can be reduced.

The work at the big dam was  rushed to the limit during the past  couple of weeks, Porter Brothers, the  contractors, having put 70 extra men  .on the works last week, and the whole  force kept on -the jump all the time.  Several train loads of gravel were  placed in the river above the dam to  keep the seepage down as small as  possible;: and ii is believed that the  workmen will be able to keep the  work ahead of the rise of the water  from now on until the dam is finished.  The water should be up high enough  to turn into the flume by Wednesday,  and it is probable that as soon as it  can be the gates of the flume will be  opened sufficiently, to allow enough  water down it to swell the caulking and  get the big flume in water-tight condition ready for.therushof the working  stream.  'I'he big crushing rolls at the smelter will be started up just as soon as a  sufficient stream can be turned into  the flume to furnish power, and about  a week after the crushers and sampling  department has started the first oi the  huge furnaces will be blown in and the  smelter will be running.  Grand Porks expects to see the big  reduction plant at work inside the next  couple of weeks, unless some utiforseen  accident occurs to cause further delay.  ���9.--P1  'ake that wij/'u^  -I'Wl        ��� "i  .   ,.

The new town of Molson, on the  reservation, 12 miles from Chesaw, has  a great future before it, according to  Prof. Kauffmann, who visited the  place this week. It already has 15 or  20 business houses, and more opening  up. A fine $8,000 hotel, called the  llrahee, is being erected, which will  have a grand opening Sepcember 1st.  An air of prosperity is evident everywhere. The townsite owners have  good financial backing, and are advertising it extensively in the east, a  big rush being anticipated in October  when the reservation opens. A first-  class stage line will connect with the  C.P. R. trains at Midwav.  Broke His Leg.  Al. Blair, an employee of the Golden Crown mine, met with an accident  Monday that will lay him up for a  month or more. He was coining  down out of a stopc, and supposing he  had reached the bottom stepped off the  ladder. Although the distance was  but there or four feet, he broke his  right leg in the fall. Mr. Blair was at  once taken to the hospital at Greenwood where he is receiving every possible care.  Gold  Bricks Too Large.  British Columbia miners should not  make their gold bricks so large.

WILL TRY SIX DAYS.  Beginning' tomorrow, the majoritj  of the large working mines in Rossland  J camp will be closed Sunday. This  includes the War Eagle, Centre Star,  LeRoi and a number of others. In  making an announcement' to that  effect the resident officials of those  mines shy:  "The observance of Sunday   as  a  , ' day of rest   is a practice1 which com-  . niendB itself to the conscience and also  to thc business judgment of the civiliz  cd -world, it being to many men a well-  'lecognizcd principle of religious belief,  , while all acknowledge its beneficent in-  ���    fluence in promoting moral and physical welfare,   raising  the standards  of  Jiving and increasing industrial  efficiency.    In   the exigencies which usually accompany  mining 'operations   in  their early stages, and  occasionally in  nil  stages, Sunday work is necessary  to .1 greater or  less degree, but when  circumstances  j)ermit,  mining  operation*) may often be so  conducted  that  very little Sunday work, is necessary.  |'As theresultof practical experience,  it is generally recognized, that the  benefits of Sunday closing are as great  in mining as in any other branch of  industry,,end it should, theiefore, be  adopted to the end "that the best interests of the mine owner and the  miner may be promoted."  Inasmuch an it   has  long been  a  settled theory with   the   majority   o!  miners  that," for many  reasons,   the  mining business could not well   afford  to close Sundays, it will be interesting  fo see how the expeiiment  will work  out.    Nearly  every  labor  union  but  those of the inineri, call for extra  pay  lor   Sunday      work.    Other   mining  concerns have been  in   favor  of the  experiment, but those in- Rossland.are  ihe first to test it on an extensive scale.

Willcox, the  delegates from the Phoenix Board of  ll'rade to the second annual convention  jyf the Associated Boards of 'l'rade of  Eastern British Columbia, held last  tveek at Nelson, returj  [morning and reportj  maliciously caused, and with means  and authority to extinguish incipient  fires where it is possible so to do."  The working of the new act in regard  to the examination of assayers was  gone into in extenso and condemned,  and the government requestedto change  it so as to make it'inore equitable.  Title of Mineral Claims.  In regard to the surface rights of  mineral claims the convention adopted  the following, introduced by Messrs.  Topping and Galloway:  "Relieving that the titles to Ciown  granted mineral claims should be full  perfect and that all the surface rights of  such claims should belong absolutely  to the grantee; be it.    ���  "Resolved, that this association do  petition the provincial government to  change- to law so that owners of mineral  claims may be allowed to'.acquire the  surface thereof at the same prices that  would be; paid if the purchase were  made underthe Land   Act; 'provided,  adopted recommending a special act to  allow at least one member for Boundary.  The convention placed itself on  record as strongly in favor of proper  representation lor the province in  London, England, and recommended  that at least $25,000 be appropriated  annually for this purpose.  The Kaslo delegation brought in  the matter of a necessity fbr changes  in the means of having limited liability  companies transformed from assessable  to non-assessable or vice versa without  the present expensive and indirect  methods. A resolution was adopted  recommending an amendment to cover  the case.  R. H. Kerr moved that the legislature take steps to compel., its officials  to be as prompt in the discharge of  their duties as are clerks in other lines  of business, citing as an instance of  dilatoriness a case in the Kamloops  registry office. The resolution was  adopted.  LASTMv.M  Townships Bank,  ESTAIJLIS.'IKJ) 1859.

Roderick Robertson, of Nelson, as president, and If. \V. C. Jackson, of Rossland, as sccretary-treasmer.  'I'he presidents of the affiliated boards  were made ex-officio vice-presidents of  the association.  At this point began the real work of  the convention,   which   consisted   of  ^taking .up   and   passing upon  various  irresolutions which   were  presented  for  ^"/^consideration.     There  were  over   30  T-jsubjects up in this manner andthorough-  '"fly thrashed out and passed verdict on.  i/w-' Official Title of Boundary,  " '.cit-''"  "If.The first topic formally discussed by  iv^pge convention was that of the title.- of  *,lne. lioundary district. The district  ih the Kettle river basin, from Chris-  tlina lake to the West Fork, is very generally known as the Boundary, but  none of the provincial maps indicate it  thus and'persons residing- out of the  -province have but a vague idea of the  real location of the lioundary. To  correct this the representatives of the  Greenwood and Phoenix board introduced a resolution bringing the matter before the government, which  carried.  A resolution was unanimously .passed suggesting that the government make  provisions for quarterly returns of the  development of the mining industry,  llie point being that such statistics  would materially influence investors  and assist promoters in inducing capitalists to direct their attention to the  province.  It was recommended that, as the  government had built a land registry  office at Nelson, filling a long felt want,  the government should be requested to  open it at once.  Platting Townsite  Additions.  The Rossland delegation introduced  a resolution requesting that the government require parties platting townsites  adjoining towns and cities securing the  approval of the municipal authorities,  ���who will see that the streets and alleys  fire laid out in - accordance with the  general plan of the original townsite,  the platting of the proposed additions  or original townsites to be examined  by a government engineer. The resolution was adopted.  A resolution was adopted recommending the government to have maps  of surveyed lands placed in every government office for thc information of  persons,requiring information on the  point, and that the maps be kept corrected to date.  T. G. Proctor moved that the Dominion government be memorialized to  look into the preservation of fishing in  Yale, Cariboo and Kootcnay, and suggesting the placing of fish ladders at  lionnington Falls and other points  where natural obstacles prevent fish  coming into Kootcnay lake and other  inland waters.  Timber Matters.  Col. Topping introduced a resolution, which was- carried,. to the effect  that the title to crown granted mineral  claims should be full and perfect and  that all surface ground and timber on  the claims should revert absolutely to  the grantee.  A resolution by Mr. Buchanan was  to this effect:  "Resolved, that in the opinion of  this association a department of the  public service be organized to which  the duty of the preservation of the forests of thc province should be assigned  and that provisions should be made  for a rigid system of timber ranging,  for a close inquiry into the origin of  timber fires, for the enforcement of  thc law in regard to fires carelessly  or  up the question of defaulting co-owners  in mineral claims, and introduced-a  resolution advocating the adoption of  the law now in force in Colorado and  other states, by which defaulting co-  owners can be advertised out. The  complaining partner has to ' file an  affidavit with the mining recorder that  he has done thc necessary work and  has notified his co-owner but has received no compensation from him.  He must also advertise in the Gazette  and a local paper for 90 days, after  which, if his partner does not pay up,  he is entitled to a title to his share in  the  property.  Messrs. liyers and Ross introduced  a resolution pledging the association  to urge the postoftice department to  establish a daily mail service among  the towns of eastern British Columbia,  where a daily service is in operation,  and that a mail car should' be put on  the Crow's Nest Pass road between  Medicine Hat and Kootenay Landing.  Carried.  The matter of bringing the resources  of British Columbia to the ' attention  of English investors through an exhibit of minerals at the Glasgow, Scotland, exhibition, was-gone into and universally approved, and a resolution  was-.passed recommending the government to take action in this direction.  A resolution, urging the government to appoint a supreme court judge  for the interior to expedite the administration of justice was carried.  R. B. Kerr introduced a resolution  to the effect that the county boundaries should be.adapted to transportation facilities so that communication  may be easy between all parts of each  county, referring especially to Yale and  Kootenay.  Endorsing Railway Charters.  Messrs. Kerr and Spraggett supported a resolution endorsing the application of a Charter -from���the'provincial  government for a railway from Grand  Forks to Carson, to connect with  another line to Republic. The subject  brought out much discussion, and the  following resolution was finally passed:  "Whereas the Associated Boards of  Trade are in favor of unstricted railway  competition. Therefore be it resolved that this association express the  warmest sympathy with the people of  the Boundary country in their struggle  for free railway competition and petition  both the dominion and provincial governments to grant railway charters to  all bona fide applicants in the Boundary country and elsewhere who. are  willing to commence construction without delay."  , Messrs. Harperand Ashley, of Kamloops, offered a resolution to urge the'  freight officials of the C. P. R. to place  the districts of Vernon and Kamloops  on an equality with other districts in  getting their products to the markets  of the Kootenays. This was carried.  Another railway .-proposition was  brought by Messrs. Ross and Hannington, of Ft. Steele, and was dealt  with in the following terms: "Resolved, that the association desires to support any movement tending to the early  construction of a railway from a point  on thc Crow's Nest Pass railway near  Sand Creek in East Kootenay, following the valleys of the Kootenay and  Columbia rivers, to a point at or near  the town of Golden."  A resolution was passed in favor of  a general railway act on American  lines, which read as follows:  "Whereas, great expense is caused by  the need of applying for a special  charter for individual railway companies, this convention favors the passing of a general railway act on the lines  of thc present provincial tramway act,  save that there should be no restriction  as to building to the international  boundary."  At last year's meeting a resolution  was passed recommending the legislature to place the expenditure on roads  and trails under thc charge of a board  of commissioners elected by the people.  A clause was added this year with the  additional suggestion that the local  board of commissioners should have  power to allow claim owners to perform  work on roads and trails under their  supervision, and that the claim owners  have the right to record such work as  assessments upon their claims to an  amount not exceeding $200 for any  one claim.  Redistribution for Boundary.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, brought  up the matter of representation of the  Boundary country in thc provincial  legislature. In the district proper, .he  said, 1,300 votes were polled at the  last election and the district has no  member for itself, while constituencies  at the coast with 300 votes have two  members. Air. Kerr pointed out that  the votes polled in the Kootenay were  more than the number polled on Vancouver Island which has fourteen  members. Thc Boundary should have |  two members.    A strong resolution was |  xjctor, and after addresses by J. J. Campbell, of the Hall  Mines smelter, and 1). W. Moore, of  the Trail smelter, a resolution was carried, requesting the dominion government to increase the import duties on  dry white lead (now 5 per cent) and  lilharagc (now free) to 20 percent.  It is believed that this change would  have the effect of providing a profitable home market for about 7000 tons  of lead annually used in the manufacture ol" lead.  Messrs. Oliver and Proctor offered  the following resolution which carried:  "That in the opinion of this association the government should establish  a school of mines at some central  point in the district oi Kootenay or  Yale." ���  It was decided to ask for the establishment of a norma' school at some  central point in the province, Kamloops being recommended.  On motion by Messrs. Spraggett  and Cumings, the convention carried  a resolution recommending the government to adjudicate on applications for  charters under the Rivers and Streams  Act without delay.'The point was  raised in connection with an application -.. for a charter to clean out the  north fork of the Kettle river which  has been hanging fire for a year.  It was resolved that whenever mines  paying royalty on output are situate  within the corporate limits of any city,  20 per cent of said royalty should be  paid over to said municipality by the  provincial government to aid in the  construction and maintenance of roads  to, mines within the limits of such  municipality.  For a Alining Commission.  A resolution-to endorse the government's proposed action in appointing a  mining commission evoked a lengthy  debate, and the speakers were of the  opinion that the laws should not be  changed constantly and without notice.  The following resolution by Messrs.  McMillan and Topping was carried:  "That this meeting strongly 'approves  of the proposal of the government to  appoint a special commission to investigate the workings of the minera  acts and to consider the question of  water rights, and the delegates would  urge upon the government the desirability of making the scope of the commission sufficiently large to embrace  the consideration of how best to raise  and expend funds in connection with  the construction of roads and bridges,  and other means of internal communication, as these matters are so intimately connected with the development of the mineral wealth of thc  province.'"'  Next Meeting at Qreenwood.  The delegation concluded to have  the next session of the association in  Greenwood, one week after the legislature opens. The association was invited to meet in Grand Forks, Greenwood, Phoenix, Fort Steele, Kaslo and  Kamloops.  A delegation including E. Spraggett,  Grand Forks, E. F. Hannington, Foit  Steele, and J. Roderick Robertson,  Nelson, was authorized to present the  resolutions adopted by the association  to the provincial ministers at Victoria.  Another deputation, consisting of  A. J. McMillan, Rossland, R. B. Kerr,  Phoenix, Duncan Ross, Greenwood,  G. 0. Buchanan, Kaslo, Ii. F. Hannington, Fort Steele, and J. R. Robertson, Nelson, was drafted to meet the  proposed.mining commission should it  be appointed by the government.  Have You Seen ?
