I GENTS. -���**��  i FURNISHINGS  No. 32  OBSERVATIONS ON  BOUNDARY MINING  By E.   Jacobs,    Well-Known  Mining Writer  .. E. Jacobs of Victoria, the well-  known mining writer of British Columbia, who recentiy madea trip through  the Boundary and Kootenay. districts,  has returned to the coast.  The chief industries of the  districts  visited, according to  Mr. Jacobs, are  in a fairly satisfactory condition on the  whole, though in places there is room  for considerable improvement.    Mining, flpwhich  he  paid   particular  at  tendon, appeared  [0  be making progress, speaking generally.    The Consolidated Mining and Smelting company of  Canada,   Ltd..   which   owns  and is energetically working  the big  smelting   plant and  refinery  at Trail,  and   mines   in   Rossland,   Boundary,  Slocan,   Nelson  and   East   Kootenay  districts, is steadily expanding its oper  ations and   contributing  materially to  the growing production of minerals  in  those several sections.    In   both   copper and lead smelting, and in lead   re  fining, at Trail  the company  has established a large and  useful  industry,  which is an  important  factor  in  the  progress and   prosperity   of southern  Kootenay   in   particular,   and   of the  Boundary as   well,   though   in   much  smaller measure.  Gold, silver, lead, copper, zinc and  coal are produced in the Kootenay and  Boundary districts.    Both  in  tonnage  of ores and  value of metal  extracted  copper heads the list, and the production  is being   well   maintained.    The  larger copper mines are in  the   Boundary, and these are operated  by  four  companies,   the Granby,   British   Columbia Copper, Consolidated and New  Dominion.    The   B C.   Copper  com  pany now holds a   controlling  interest  in the New   Dominion,   so  hencetorth  will   direct   its   working   affairs.    For  reasons which every spring  necessitate  a lessening  of output   of  mines,   and  conscfftiqm, tpn��aj>e of ore treated, the:  total quantity of copper ore being produced and   smelted  at   the   time  the  district  was  less  than   the  minimum.  Now, however,   that  summer   weather  is being experienced,   it is   practicable  to mine and smelt  to  nearly   the   full  producing capacity of  the  mines  and  smelteries.     The early spring  vagaries  of the mining stock markets have  not  lessened   production   for   the   Granby  company is well  maintaining  its large  tonnage and its local officials aver that  there is as much ore in sight as at any  earlier  time,   while   mining   costs  are  decidedly low and conditions generally  favorable to profit earning, though this  desirable outcome is necessarily affected  by the pi ice ol copper.

Mine  The city council has authorized the  clearing ol a trail to No. 7 mine, which  will be a near cul-for ;;jnen 'passing '.to  and from the mi'.e and this city. The  trail will start in ner.r Hartford and  will be less than two miles in' length,  and when finished will bring the mine  within four miles of Phoenix to walk.  The trail and the new road start about  the same place, but the trail will be at  least two miles shorter. This will not  only be of great convenience to those  walking between the city and No. 7  mine, but should be of direct benefit  to the city generally. N. Lemieux is  in charge of the work.  Valuators   at Victoria  to the Coast  A meeting of the board of valuator*  appointed in fix the price which the  Kettle Valley Railway company mus'  pay for the old Midway & Vernoi'  grade, according to a despatch fron<  Victoria, was to have been held in thai  city yesterday. It was expected thai  the board would then come' very near  a conclusion as to the amount of the  award. This will be reported lo the  government and a subsequent me"t'ne  of valuators will be held to apportion  the payment in satisfaction of the local  claims against the Midway and Vernon  company, wages having preference.  A gang of men weie put to work on  the Kettle Valley, lines' extension up  the north fork a few days ago and it  was first thought that it was the commencement of work on the proposed  ten miles of new railway. Later advices, however, state that there is only  a small gang of workmen and that they  are repairing track already laid.  It is officially announced that construction on the Kettle Valley railway  will start out of Merritt early in July.  Work at the Midway end has already  been undertaken and just as soon as  the preliminaries are lined out work  will start from the Nicola valley end,  says the Merritt News.  Important developments in the railroad situation have taken place during  the past few days and it is stated in  apparently well authorized circles that  the Kettle valley which is virtually the  Canadian Pacific railway will have a  line over the Hope mountains to the  coast just soon as it can be built.  It is known that survey crews are  now working along' the banks of the  river across from Ruby creek" and that  they have already planned the line  from Hope westward.  This will mean that the Kettle  Valley will have two channels one via  Product of Trail Smelter About  $6,000,000  The returns of the Consolidated  Mining and Smelting company, which  owns the Trail smelter, the Snowshoe,  Phoenix Amalgamated and No. 7 mines  at Phoenix and mines in east Kootenay, indicate a record year for the  twelve months ending June 30, 1910.  During May the total product of the  company's smelter at Trail was $575,.  582 giving a total for the 11 months  of the company's fiscal year, which  ended on June 30th, of $5,420,737 as  against $4,876,000 for the corresponding period of last year or an increase  of $544,737-  Provided the returns for June are  up to the average of the preceding  eleven months, the returns for the year  will be., approximately $6,000,000  which will make the present by far the  best year in the company's history.  During the twelve months ended  June 30, 1909, the company's output  was $5,506,000, which was then regarded as a record to be proud of.  This year, however, promises to be at  least half a million dollars larger.  The company's showing is especially  gratifying in view of the fact that this  ore is not drawn from any particular  section. It is from east Kootenay,  Sheep Creek, the Slocan, Nelson,  Rossland, the Boundary, and even  from the Similkameen.  ;... Another point which makes the  showing particularly satisfactory is the  fact that this year's results have been  attained in the face of an extremely  low   metal   market.    Had  the  ORDER TAX SALE  OF CITY PROPERTIES  Delinquents Required To Pay  Up Before Sept. J  At the regular session of the city  council on Wednesday evening it was  decided to hold a tax sale of city properties for delinquent taxes on Thursday, Sept. 1, 1910. The sale will  take place at 10 a.m. at the city hall,  and the city clerk was instructed to  give the necessary notice in the Phoenix Pioneer and the B. C. Gazette.  Mayor Matheson and Aldermen C  A. Ross, A. D. McKenzie and A.  Almstrom were present at the meeting.  Isaac Crawford made application for  the position of auditor of the city's  books and on motion received the appointment.  The council indorsed the action of  the board of works in sending men to  make a trail to No. 7 mine.    .  The transient real estate agents bylaw received its second reading.  The costs in connection with ���the  Cosgrove appeal case, as passed by the  city council of 1909, were ordered lo  be paid.  The  following accounts   were   examined and passed: .

Jim Hill is forcing the hand of the  C.P.R. and it is stated by well known  railway men that the latest move of  the Great Northern makes it imperative  that the C.P.R. have a line over the  Hope mountains into Vancouver. This  will provide a shorter and cheaper  route for points in the  Nicola  valley.  Another report comes to hand to  the effect that the Canadian Northern  will build south from Kamloops the  Nicola valley and over the Hope pass.  English engineers who are interested  financially in the project recently  visited British Columbia and they went  back and reported against the Fraser  river route for the new transcontinental.

A special train was tun from Phoenix  and carried about one hundred passengers, while a number of others drove  down to see the travelling zoo. But  there was a humorous mixture of expressions on the faces of the excursionists when they landed at the jumping  off place simultaneously with the circus  outfit and found they would require to  wait till 11 p.m. to see the show. The  heat and dust of the gateway city combined to make the wait for the delayed  ��how a niemoriable one, while to the  visitors the best of the trip was the  getting home.

The London Standard says: "We in this country can feel'nothing but admiration for  the zeal and promptidude with .which  Canada has entered upon thegreat enterprise of establishing*a navy.". The  Standard adds that it is glad to see  that some of the vessels are to be laid  down in Canadian yards. -  :  Hints lo Investor*  Do not be guided by the prospectus  which consists of a string of eloquently  worded inanities. Do not oelieve the  report of the expert which' is usually  attached to the prospectus, unless it is  that of a man well known of admitted  ly honest character, or in the case of a  (stranger, unless the report will bear the  careful scrutiny of yourself and of such  FlUWIfilSH J^UULlSUlWtf (JU.'Jof your friends as may be experienced  in mining.  ��� Do not judge the capacity of the directors'for conducting such an important concern as a gold mine by their  titles.' The names looked for should  be those of well known business or  commercial men; of directors in successful mines; of mining engineers, or  the partners' of well known mining  houses; and, most of all, the real magnates in the mining world who will  take care that their names shall not be  mixed up in' a directorial capacity with  any company likely to be a failure.  Do not favorably consider a scheme  in which the vendors propose to annex  60 or So per cent, of the shares. As a  rule the unproved ground, which is  usually floated as a mine, has only cost  the venders a nominal sum. If the  company in which you have applied  for shares goes to allotment, make it  your business to find out how much of  the working capital stipulated for has  actually been subscribed.  > ��� Do not in the early days of a mine's  existence believe what-the newspapers  or printed circulars say as to its success. It usually takes much time and  large expenditures  to prove a mine.  Do not, assuming that all the vendor's shares are pooled, -and that the  market-is being worked by one man,  believe in the genuineness of tape, or  stock-exchange quotations.  Finally, and most important'of all���  be satisfied witha' reasonable or'- even  a' small profit; When you decide to  sell-do not'give your brokers a' limit,  slightly above that at which the shares  thenstand, but sell immediately and  right- out.  Thus should the novice or the speculator who has-no accurate sources of  information," conduct his-mining oper*  ations, at least when dealing with new  and unproved mines. If everyone were  to follow' the rules laid down above,  only about twenty per cent of the  mines now floated would have pro  ceeded to allotment. Even then, of  course, the speculator could not assure himself against loss but he would  greatly minimize the risk, and at the  same time would have the satisfaction  of dealing with the business in a common sense and perhaps profitable manner.���Gurle's Gold Mines of the  World.  Bauodiry Contttblei'  It is generally conceded that the  Boundary has now an alert and active  squad of provincial police who have  been giving a good account-of them  selves in rounding up' any criminal*  that may venture within the territory.  That the same opinion of them is held  by our cousins across the line is evidenced in the following taken from the'  Oroville Gazette:  That popular Canadian officer, C. J.  Bunbury, of Greenwood, was  in  town  Sunday, accompanied by G. W. Aston  and Jas.C Kerhpston, brother officers  on the Canadian force.    Mr. Kempston  is from Midway/ and Mr.  Aston will  be stationed at Fairview;    Alert, active,  fearless men are these Canadian guardians of the peace.    They  were  down  I here  patrolling  the  border,  and  got  Iwind of two crimes that will keep them  imoving until the offenders are run  to  earth.    Friday night the postoffice at  Okanagan   Landing   was  burglarized.  This crime was committed outside'the  jurisdiction of the gentleman named,  but the news put them on the qui vive,  and they will not fail to pick up the  offender if they set their eyes on him.  Sunday they received word of a crime  of more serious nature, committed at  Princeton that  sent Messrs.   Bunbury  and Kempston scurrying to Keremeos  Monday morning.��� ���   .'  Romanes Not Yet Detd.  Those who believe that theromano  of British Columbia passed with the  Cariboo and the Atlin gold rushes, require for their disillusionment just such  a trip as the trial run of the G.T.P.'s  new palatial steamer, Prince Rupert,  which was completed on Sunday, afforded. For six days its passengers  had on every hand the evidences o'  the development of the new north,  which is giving to the upper portions  of the province all the thrill and glamor  which in the old days attended the  search for, and the discovery  of gold.  .

On the recommendation of Mr. Aid-  rich,   manager   of   the   Consolidated  Mining and   Smelting  Company,   Mr,  Hornel, head of the mines department  at Ottawa, has appointed VV. R. IngaJJs.  of New York,   to  take charge  of  the  Dominion appropriation of $50,000 to  be expended in ascertaining   improved  methods of treating  the  zinc ores  British Columbia.  The Silver cup mine near Ferguson,  Lardeau, is again being operated after  a temporary suspension. This has  long been the most important mine in  the Lardeau, and the only one year  after year to maintain an output of ore  that under ordinary conditions may be  regarded as fairly large. Its output of  first-class ore last year was 1631 tons  of high-grade silver-lead ore, also containing gold..  The discovery of another coal basin  is the topic in Princeton. It proves  what has been generally conceded by  geologists and prospectors that a succession of coal basins was formed by  upheavls of earth along the east slope  of Hope mountains. Outcropping? of  coal from the recent find submitted to  experts have been pronounced bituminous, but a thorough test will be made  when a seam has been uncovered.  Sixteen claims have been staked.  Another strike has been made on  the Nugget properties at Sheep creek.  A gold ore vein sixteen feet wide has  been opened up for a distance of 450  feet and the average which the assay  promises is from $15 up to $30 per  ton. Besides this there is a streak  some eighteen inches wide which carries about -jYz ounces to the ton, valued  at about $150. The Nugget people  consider this the most valuable find in  the district, not even excepting the  Mother Lode strike of a few months  ago.   1 ways   Begins  With An Ordinary Cold.  So Says Dr, Hartman, the Greatest  Living Authority On Ca-  :  t tarrhal Diseases.  THE first effect of a cold is a thickening of tho mucous membranes of  the nose and throat.  This gives rise to a discharge, or at  leant a stuffiness of tho nasal passages.  Sometimes fever accompanies tho first  attack, also a fooling of languor, dullness and aching of the bones.  - If no attention is paid to i t, the mucous  congestion is liable to spread dou 11 into  the larynx, producing hoarseness and  Into the bronchial tubes, producing a  cough.  , Even when this occurs, many people  pay no attention to it.  Under such circumstances, the congestion is liable to become chronic, producing a condition of the mucous membranes known as catarrh. Catarrh lasts  an lndu_.nl to  time. Catarrh  is essentially a  chronic  condition and docs not leave except something is done to relieve it.  WhatBhouldbe done when a person  catches cold is to take a few doseaof  ���Peruna.  ���Taken at the onset, Peruna would  break up the cold and prevent all tho  ; train of symptoms wli ich usual I y follow.  But, even In cases whore the cold has  been neglected and hoarseness or a  cough has developed. Poruna can ,be  I relied upon to give promp*. and per-  j xnanent relief.  The frequency of coughs and colds In  the winter makes Peruna a popular rem-  i edy for these ailments.  A number of the best people of various  countries have given testimonials as to  the value of Peruna in such cases. -...-;  Followed    Dr.    Hartman's    Advice-  Restored to Health.  Mrs. Samuelle Vigneau, Avre auBerd,  ; Isle de La Magdaline, Canada, writes:  *'I write to tell you that I am perfectly'  '; well.   1 took only threo bottles of your  Peruna according to your advice and  the directions in your  book and it restored my health."
