The most sensational holdup in the  histoiy of the Boundary -occurred7 at  Midway about nine o'clock Tuesday  evening. Charles L. Thomet, pro  prietor of the Commercial hotel, was  shot and killed by highwaymen, who  nre thought to be the same pair that  have been operating throughout the  district lately.  Two masked men entered the hotel  quietly and covering Thomet with  guns demanded him to throw up his  hands. Thomet was behind the bar  and while reaching for his revolver received a bullet in the chest and another in his shoulder. He quickly  returned fire with two shots and then  staggered through a side dooi into the  dining room. The desperadoes left  the bar but are'supposed-to have gone  to a window and fired at Thomet  again, as a bullet hole in the floor near  where he lay would indicate. From  blood found on the floor, one of the  murders is thought to be seriously  wounded.  William B. Bower, who goes from  Grand Forks to Midway to be in charge  of the Midway branch of the E. T.  bank there one day . a week, was an  eyewitness. We print below his evidence given at the inquest held on  Wednesday.  William B. Bower���Am a banker,  rebide in Grand Forks. I was at  Thomet's hotel close to or a few minutes earlier than nine c'clock in the  evening.. Deceased, Archie McDou-  galland George Henderson were in  room. I was standing at north end of  bar looking from door. I casually  tutneU-����_ __*. ,_o-____ked. men.  They had blue masks on. Each had  a gun pointing towards deceased/- Deceased was standing at end of bar  about eighteen feet from me. I saw a  motion of deceased to pick .up. pistol  which was near his hand. Deceased  picked same up and fired instantly in  direction of two masked men, who returned the fire instantly by two shots.  Can't say which man fired or whether  both fired. The man nearest me  covered me first for a moment, then  dropped his gun to his side, then both  went out of the door quietly as they  came in. I made for the wall nearest  the street so that if they shot back into the room I would not be exposed.  Saw they could still pot me, and hurried  to dining room door, deceased being  crouched beside door, I presumed in  position to fire if they showed up again.  I went into dining room passed him  and said "don't shoot; it is me." He  didn't answer. After passing him I  went around to back of sideboard,  thinking it a place of safety, and deceased was on his back bleeding from  wound in neck. McDougall and Mrs.  Thomet then rushed in.  To Jury���Thomet was partly covered by bar. 1 hink Thomet fired another shot, but it had no effect as men  had gone. After two shots fired by  masked men Thomet crouched down  behind the bar where he was standing,  and, I believe, fired a shot from that  po.uion Then he backed into dining  room, crouching down. The shot in  the dining room was fired before I left  the wall. Deceased did not speak  after masked men appeared. Deceased  did not speak to men and men did not  ���peak to him. Do not know if the  masked men went round to front part  and shot into dining room. Do not  know who masked men were. Both  about the same size. Seemed well  sized men in dark clothes. Eye-holes  iu line and guns well in line. Deceased had j>un in his hand when I  passed him going into dining room.  A number of residents were quickly  on the scene after the sh o i-.ig. The  strangers had been noticed sizing up  business places, and at the Spokane  hotel the occupants were expecting and  all armed for the holdup when they  heard the shots at Thomet's.  Chief Constable Devitt arrived from  Nelson Wednesday evening with blood  hounds, and started with a posse of  a dozen or more men on the hunt  for the bandits. Blood was found in  the woods about ten miles west ot  Midway on the Rock Creek road,  which was supposed to be from the  wounded highwayman. ��� The blooJ  hounds were started from there on  Thursday afternoon.  The provincial government offer a  reward of $1000 for the capture of the  murderers.  The late Mr. Thomet was a native  of Switzerland and in his 49th year.  He came to this district if. years ago  and for a number of years was a pro^  vincial constable.    As a marksman he  Rev. F. J. Rutherford of Greenwood  has gone to Toronto for a month.

MINING IN THE  COEUR D'ALENE  J. L. Martin Visits the  Famous District  Tells of Coeur D'AIenes and  Carney Copper  Boundary Mining Notes  A new and impoved steel sharpener  was installed at the Gold Drop this  week by the Granby company.  TheB. C. Copper company's smelter  treated .4,158 tons of ore this week  as follows: Mother Lode, 9,84.2 tons;  Oro Denoro, 2,596 tons; other properties, 720.

MNISTEEOF  MINES III GAMP  ..._-^.  Hon. W. Templeman  and W/R. Brock  Shown Through the Granhy  Mines Yesterday  Hon. William Templeman, minister  of mines, and W. R. Brock, director of  the geological survey branch. department of mines, were visitors in Phoenix  yesterday and made an inspection of  mining development generally in  the  camp.  They are making a tour of the mines  of the province, having visited the  Kootenay and Rossland camps before  arriving in the Boundary.- On Friday  they visited theGranby smelter and ar  rived here in the evening,, coming in  over the Great Northern in their Canadian government. private car, accompanied by A. B. W. Hodges, manager  of the Granby company.  During the evening they were visited  at their car by O. E. LeRoy and A. H.  Boyd and the progress in the field work  of the survey party discussed. Messrs.  LeRoy and Boyd, with about twelve  assistant., are still working in camp with  headquarters at the Snowshoe. The  former is making a detailed survey of  the geological structure of the productive area, wh-le the latter is making a  detailed topograph map of the camp.  Their work will not likely be completed until the end of September.  Veslerday morning the minister and  Mr.  Brock   were   shown   through the  Granby mines and plant   by   Manager  Hodges, being also driven to the Gold  Drop.    It is some four years since Mr.  Templeman   visited   Phoenix, and  he  expressed   much   admiration   in   the  many improvements which had   been  made by the company in carrying on  the development of the great  mineral  resources.      Although   not    a    brisk  walker the minister   climbed   the   big  Granby hill, and was much   interested  in the extent of the immense glory hole.  Hon.   Mr.   Templeman   and   Mr.  Brock, with their private secretary, Mr.  Nichols, left at noon to drive to Midway, visiting the smelter of the  B. C.  Copper company while en  route.    At  Midway   they   met   their   private  car  which   had   been   sent  round by the  Great   Northern,    going   through    to  Keremeos.  From Keremeos they drive  to  Hedley to visit the Nickel Plate  mine,   and   will continue their  drive  through by   Princton and  Nicola  to  reach the C.P.R. main line.  "Since the financial panic of October,  1907, mining and mine development  in the Coeur D'AIenes has been curtailed at least 50%," said J.L. Martin,  on his return Wednesday from a trip  to that famous district, and an inspection of the Carney mine, near Mullan,  Idaho. "During the winter and early  summer nearly all of the shippers and  dividend . payers were closed down,  throwing about 2,500 men out of work.  Old settlers say that times have not  been so hard since 1893-94.  "The Morning mine at Mullan was  closed  down   eight   months.      Since  starting up two months ago it has kept  adding to its crew until there are now  325  men employed.    Last week this  mine   reported   the   most   important  strike since completing the two aiid one  half mile tunnel about eighteen months  ago, again demonstrating that the ore  chutes in this section go to great depth.  This discovery was made on the 1500-  foot level. .   It  is  reported  that  the  LFederal company has just  purchased  the Hunter mine, one mile east of the  Mullan.    The price was not given out,  but rumored to be close to $2,000,000.  I made a short call at the Snowstorm  mine and heard much  of  interest  to  shareholders from Leo. Greenough, the  superintendent.      Since   starting   up  about six weeV. ago they   have  been  working about 75 men, and   shipping  more ore than they did a year ago with  225 men.    This   is  the  only  copper  mine in the Coeur   D'AIenes  on  the  shipping list and has opened up a new  field for mining with great possibilities.  Enough was said to make it quite cer-  ��� tain that the Snowstorm  will  resume  j 3% a month dividends not later  than  October. -:>-:,.    .;-.. ....���-  "Yes, I was pleased with the new  strike in the Carney mine.

It will  require about 60 feet more crosscutting  to. reach the ledge on this level, which  we are driving for.  "The Carney was first discovered and  located in 1892.    Owing  to  the  low  price of copper at that time and   the  prevailing belief that no minerals, except  gold silver and lead, could be found iu  the district, the  locators,   after  doing  some   three   or   four   months'   work,  allowed it to lapse.    It was   relocated  two years ago last   January,   after   the  Snowstorm had proved copper existed  in the district in   paying  quality  and  quantities.      I   bonded   the  property  August 24th, 1906, and after spending  about $3,500 in development work, interested W. D. Greenough and others  ���well known and experienced mining  men���and incorporated   the  property  Dec. 3, 1906.    At that date   we   had  tunnel No. 1 in on the  85-foot   level,  including crosscuts 225 feet, ana naa  cut the blind ledge of now   two  feet  wide which carried about   3%   copper  and some silver.    We also found copper glance and borenite in connection  with this ledge.    Since then we   have  run tunnel No. 2 in 835 feet with 285  feet of crosscutting   on   the  425-toot  level, where we had cut four ledges and  are still cross-cutting for the main iron-  capped ledge, under which we expect  find silver and lead at some point. Mr.  Carson,  our superintendent says:     'I  will not consider 25c. per share for my  stock.'      Mr.   Hewston,   the   expert,  says:    'The Carney property   has   the  ear marks of a mine.'    Mr.  Cole, one  of the best  miners in the Coeur d'-  Alenes has completed two contracts���  one for 300 feet, and one for 200 feet,  for which he accepted one third pay in  stocK���and last Monday signed a contract for 200 feet more, for   which  he  takes all stock.    My advice to shareholders _s���'Hold your stock.'"  W. S. Keith, formerly smelter superintendent for the Montreal and Boston  Copper Co., Boundary Falls, B.C., has  opened offices in Seattle, Wash., as  consulting mining engineer and metallurgist.  The work of the geological survey  party in Phoenix camp still goes on  under Messrs. LeRoy and Boyd, with  headquarters at the Snowshoe property.  Mr. Dickinson arrived last week from  the east and is acting as chief draftsman.

So the man who is  compelled to" rely on his own resources  forms an independence of character to  which he could riot otherwise have at  tained.

Kane, of  Chicago, Uses  Pe-ru-na in her  family of five  children, Grace,  Myrtle, Edward  EDWARD  ���*"*&__:.���'  &  P��-ru-na In the Home.  After all,experience Is tho best teacher.  Borne doctors may write In favor of Peruna. Other doctors may write agnlnst  It. But ltis tho testimony ot the mothers  nnd fathom who ��ru rearing fatqillo..  who love their children, who rnn��t  economise aa to doctor bills, who are  raising little boys and stria |nto;mcn and  women of the future, it U the testimony  Ot such people that really counts.  There is no way to positively ascertain  bow many families in the United State*  rely upon Peruna for the many climatic  ailments to which tlie family is subject.  Tlie number must be a great one. Sever-"  pi millions perhaps. They )iave learned  flow to use Peruna-tor ordinary ailments, and In tha^ yray %ro guarding  their homes against more serious diseases.  Such ailments as coqghg and colds,  ���ore throat ang catarrh, croup and colic,  Indigestion and Iobs of appetite,-anemia  and nervousness, all those ailments are  promptly relieved by a few doses ot  f*eruna at ihe right time.  Millions pf provident mothers and  fathers are guarding the Interests' of the  borne by using Dr. Hartman _i great  pamedy, and profiting by his medical  booklets and personal advice.  w  Reeves  George  A Healthy [^mily  Catarrh al Stomach:  Kept the Children Well.  Mrs. K, Kane. 196 Sebor St., Flatl j Chicago, III., writes:  "Peruna has been used so long in our family that I do not know  how I could get along without it.  "I have given it to all of my five children at different times wnen  they suffered with croup, colds and the many ailments that children,  are subject to, and am pleased to say that it has* kept them in splen  did health.    >  ���  "I have also used it for a catarrhal difficulty of long standing,  and it cured me in a short time, so I have every treason to praise  Catarrhal Croup.  Few people realize how frequently  croup is caused'by catarrhal congestion  of the throat, Probably nine cases outof  tgn of croup is of the catarrhal variety.  _?hg medical profession recognizes  three forms of croup. The ppasmodicva-  riety, membranous croup und catarrhal  croup.  Nearly every case is of tho catarrh al variety, and a few doses of Peruna taken at  the first appearance of the catarrhal  symptoms U generally sufficient to avert  tho attack of croup altogether.  Croup is a f:-i;_;htfiil disease. No disease of children _o alarms the houe;i-hold.  It is impossible to estimate how many  homes hare been protected against croup  by the proper use of Pernna,  Household Remedies,  There is no remedy in the world  which has prqven so popular for catarrh  as Peruna. l\ has been used for more  than thirty years and. cured thousands  of cases, as prpyen by our testimonials.  In the early history of this, country  every family had its "home-made medicines. Herb teas, bitters, laxatives and  tonics were to bo found in' ulmoBt every  house, compounded by the housewife.  sometimes assisted by the apothecary or  ths family doctor.  Furnishing medical compounds direct  to the people, through the druggists j is  simply the extension of the practice begun by tho people themselves.  Nervous System a Wreck.  John O.

"Peruna is the purest and best medl:  cine, and if used according to directions,  it will h.lp any persciri and cure any disease for which it is recommended. I recommend this medicine by my own experience to any one suffering from an  ailment on the order of mine."  For, Herself and Children.  Mrs. Aline DePasse, 776 E.il65t_i St.;  New York, N.
