THE    BIG     iSTOM=l&  A meeting of those interested in the  Prince Henry-Abercraig Mining and  Developing syndicate, was held Wednesday in Greenwood, to consider the  advisability of incorporating a company  to carry on the work of the syndicate,  which has shown up so satisfactorily  for the last eight months. There was  a good attendance and it was decided  to form a coi poration with a capitalization of $500,000 in one dollar  shares. Present holders of shares with  the syndicate will receive 1,000 shares  of company stock for each share of  syndicate stock, leaving 400,000 shares  in the treasury for the purpose of paying up the bond to G. A. Rendell,  owner of the claim, and for development.  The present syndicate has roo  shares, the holder of each paying $10  per month per share, thus giving a de  velopment fund of $1,000 monthly.  At Wednesday's meeting it was decided  to limit the time for payments of this  $10 per month to 20 months from the  time of beginning, or twelve months  more. No one was forced to stay in  the syndicate longer than desired, a  shareholder merely dropping out at  any time and losing whatever he might  have 'paid in. An advantage claimed  was that men of limited   means  could  PRINCE  MKXRV  MINK.  see that the money they put in  monthly was actually being spent in development, and by a combination of  this kind it was known that the money  was going into the ground into development.  The new company will continue to  vigorously prosecute the development  of the property. A 20 horse power  electric hoist has been ordered  through E. G. Warren, of the Greenwood Electric Co., and when installed  the company will be able to reduce expenses and at the same time handle  the material from the mine, including  water, which is giving some trouble,  to the best advantage. The shaft is  now down about 140 feet, and it will  be put down another hundred, there  being considerable drifting at the 112-  foot level, where the initial shipment  of ore was made from, which gave encouraging results.  The officers of the syndicate are G.  A. Rendell, chairman, and Dr. J. E.  Spanke secretary-treasurer. Some of  those interested are: Dr. Spankie, G.  A. Rendell, G. 15. Taylor, N. F. Ken-  dell, H. F. Stowi-, li. E Anderson and  E. B. Dill, of Greenwood; Patrick  Welch, of Spokane; Messrs. Devitt,  Mulligan and Wood, New York; XV.  T. Choate and 1. McKeller, of Eholt;  A. W. Haley, Phoenix; E. 11. Threlh-  ewey, of Nakusp; II. J. Bayly, D. J.  Darraugh and W. T. Mesker, of  Midway, and Curne White and Ernest  Carl'er of Greenwood, besides others.  Lost Both Eyes al the Providence.  Thursday night W. A. Nicholson  picked into a missed hole at the Providence, and received almost the full  charge in his face He was taken to  the Sisters' hospital at Greenwood and  looked after by Dr. Spankie, who  found that the unfortunate man had  lost both eyes, and that his arms, legs  and chest were filled with small particles of rock. He is now getting every  care at the hospital and doing as well  as could be expected.  The matron and nurses of the hospital will give a ball at Miners' Union  hall on the evening of April 4th  The members of the Catholic Indies' Aid confidently assert that those  who attend their annual ball, March  1 6th, will  have the time of their lives.  A man named Bennett drew his  time at the mines Tuesday, and tried  to get away on Wednesday's Great  Northern train without paying his  numerous bills. His creditors were  one too many for him, however, and  he was arrested on a vagrancy charge,  brought before the beak and given 20  days in the Nelson jail, to think the  matter over.  Five air drills are now being operated at the Rawhide mine.  The Dominion Copper Co. now  has about 350 men employed at both  mines and smelter.  The latest assay from the Strathmore  workings runs from $120 to $208 per  ton gold and silver.  A Boston report is to the effect that  the Dominion Copper Co., is now  making from $10,000 to $15,000 per  month net.  Sinking continues in the 200 foot  shaft of the Elkhorn, the intention being, to go down another too feet in  this excellent property.  The Grand Forks Gazette states that  last week Friday 2,959 tons c)f or(i  were treated at the Granby smelter,  being a new record in this regard.  At the Mother Lode, after considerable preparation, the actual work of  deepening the main shaft is now well  under way. About 130 men are now  employed at this property.  Edwin Jussen, a mining engineer  from Spokane, has been making an  examination of the B. C. Copper Co.'s  Emma and Mother Lode mines, being  accompanied by F. Keffer, the company's consulting engineer.  The meeting scheduled for last  Tuesday, February 27th, of the Dominion Copper Co., to raise the par  value of the shares from $5 to $ 1 o,  was duly held and the officers of the  company given the neeessary authorization by the shareholders.  Considerable stripping has been  necessary before the Oro Denoro could  ship to any extent over both railways.  Foreman Graham now has this pretty  well along, and the Dominion smelter  at Boundary Falls will get some of the  ore, as well as the Granby works.  No decision seemingly has yet been  arrived at as to whether the Great  Northern or C.P.R. will build the spur  to the Idaho mine for the Dominion  Copper Co., but the matter will doubtless be settled in a short time, and  many think the C.P.R. will not let this  tonnage get away frojri them.  Last Tuesday the work of excavation for the enlargements at the smelter of the B. C. Copper Co. was begun, W. P. Tierney having the contract  for excavating and A. G. Creelman  that for masonry and carpenter work.  When completed the works will have  a daily capacity of 1,500 tons.  Foreman Rogers now has a force of  some twenty men at work on the development of the Pathfinder, up the  North Fork of Kettle river, the property having recently been bonded to  the Granby Co. for a sum said to be  $110,000. It is thought the force will  be increased to perhaps 50 this summer.  Work started this week on several  improvements at the Skylark mine, including new shaft house over the main  working shaft, just being completed,  150-ton ore bins, dry room, etc. Alex  Strachan has charge of the building.  This week Frank Buckless was hauling  a couple more cars of ore to the Greenwood siding for shipment.  Theo. T. Mueller, of Chicago, one  of the directors of the Chicago & B.C.  Mining Co., has arrived to spend two  or three months at the company's  properties���the Like group, about two  and a half miles from Phoenix. He  will arrange to resume operations on  the Don Pedro, where previous development has made a good showing. Mr.  Mueller was here last fall.  John Stanton, widely known as the  father of the copper industry, died in  New York February 23d, aged 76  years. He was a director in the  Granby Co. and president of the  Mohawk, Winona, Baltic, Wolverine  and Michigan mining companies, as  well as director in the Atlantic, Copper Range, Michigan Smelting and  American Coal companies. He had  been interested in copper mining for  about 50 years. Some two years ago  he visited the Granby mines in  Phoenix.  HELEN BUYS  STRATHMORE  Boundary Side Lights  Consolidation  Grade  of Two  Mines.  High  Deal Arranged by A, Miller in  Chicago.  Alex Miller, of Greenwood, has returned from a several weeks business  trip to Chicago and other eastern cities,  also visiting San Francisco and Portland on the way back to the Boundary.  Mr. Miller informs the Pioneer that  while in Chicago, he closed a deal  whereby the owners of the Helen mine,  a high-grade Greenwood property, become the purchasers of the Strathmore  mine, in which a number of Greenwood, Phoenix, Grand Forks and  Palouse people are interested. The  Strathmore, which is also a high grade  property cloe to Greenwood is to be  paid for in shares ofthe Helen Mining  Co. There have b.en issued 650,000  shaiesofthe Helen mine, of which  110,000 shares still remain in the  treasury. These are to be used for  the future development of both properties. The Helen property is also  supplied with funds for the purpose of  carrying on work for some time without selling shares.  At present work is being prosecuted  at both the Helen and Strathmore  mines and the company intends to  ship a carload of high grade ore from  the Strathmore during the present  month. Thereafter shipments will be  continued at regular intervals from  both Helen and Strathmore.  Mr. Miller stated that there is a  favorable feeling in the east regarding  British Columbia mining properties.  The Boundary district, especially,  stands very high with capitalists. He  Predicts an inflow of foreign capital  seeking'investriientjduring^the .coming  season, bringing with"it an increased  activity in mining circles.  Duncan Ross, M. P., is president  of the Greenwood-Strath more Mines,  Ltd,, the selling company, and C.  Scott Galloway is secretary-treasurer.  James Donohue, of Chicago is president of the Helen Mining Co., and S.  P. Brannan is secretary.  The deal is a good one for both  companies, with ample capital to de  velop the mines, which are both being  operated with satisfactory results.  LEROI MINE  t     PAYS $75,000.00  Six  Estimates Brought Down.  The estimates brought down Wednesday by the legislature for the fiscal  year place the revenue at $2,647,-  976.66, and the  expenditure as  $2,-  837.0"6-3>- .  The chief items in expenditure are,  public works, $677,810; education,  $409,075.  The appropriations of chief interest  in the interior are :  Court house, Nelson      $20,000  Gov't offices, Cranbrook      6,000  Gov't offices, Fernie     5,������  For roads, etc., in  the   various rid  ings of Kootenay and  Boundary :  Columbia $  Cranbrook   Fernie   Grand Forks     5,000  Greenwood      3.5����  Kaslo    12,000  Revelstoke    11,000  Similkameen. .       20,000  Slocan      8,000  Ymir    1 1,000  7,000  (1,000  2,5����  First Dividend For Some  Years.  A report from London on Wednesday says that for the first time since  November, 1S99, the shareholders of  the LeRoi Mining Company today received a dividend.  The directors of the company, as  soon as A. J. McMillan was once  more placed upon the board, promptly  declared an interim dividend of is. 6d.  per share, payable today. The market  valuation of the property has substantially increased'since the overthrow of  the old board. -  The capital of the LeRoi company  is $500,000 in $25 shares. 'I'he  amount paid to date, exclusive of this  last dividend was $1,305,000. With  this last payment of $75,000 added,  the total distribution by the present  company now amounts to $1,380,000.  The last dividend declared was one of  $1.20 per share in November, 1S99.  ONE OF MOST ENJOYABLE OF SEASON.  Eagles Dance Monday   Evening   Was Highly  Praised.  Monday evening Phoenix Aerie No.  15S, Fraternal Order of Eagles, gave a  dance at Miners' Union hall, for the  benefit of those members of the order  who had recently been ill during the  typhoid epidemic. It is well known  that the Eagles never do things by-  halves, and this was no exception to  that rule The music, furnished by  the James orchestra of five pieces, was  as usual of the best, and the spacious  hall was crowded all the evening. In  fact the dance was kept up till "Home,  Sweet Hemic," was played, about four  o'clock the next morning, many who  usually leave dances at midnight staying till the last tune was played, anil  even then being reluctant to leave.  The supper, furnished by Danny  Deane, was done full justice to also.  The net results of the dance were  about $250.  CARD  OK THANKS.  The Fraternal Order of Eagles, of  Phoenix, wish especially to extend  their thanks to the nurses of the Phoenix General Hospital for the painstaking and skilful care given to their members while under treatment there during  the recent epidemic of typhoid, aud to  the public at large for their kind patronage of its complimentary ball.  Greenwood is trying to get the Gt.  Northern to build in there.  Born to the wife of Rev. E. Manuel,  Grand Forks. February 22nd, a son.  Greenwood has joined the Canadian  Union of Municipalities. It required  a ten spot.  Charles Mcl\ Crouse, of Midway,  has purchased the business of the  Thomas Drug Co. in that town.  'I'he Grand Forks Methodists have  placed themselves on record as desiring  union with the Presbyterian denomination.  The new passenger station for the  V,,V. & E. at Midway has been completed and is being placed in commission.  Up to yesterday  nothing had transpired   as   to   the fate of the charter of  the Midway & Vernon  railway at Vic  toria.  A number of new business blocks,  besides several dwellings, are likely to  be constructed in Grand Forks this  ytar.  Last week Friday the Greenwood  Curling Club gave its annual ball,  which was reported to be a most enjoyable event.  Rev. McLean was appointed by the  Presbytery to succeed Rev A. H.  Cameron at Midway, and will assume  his new duties April 1st.  The city fathers of Greenwood propose to still further augment the water  supply there by tapping Providence  creek at the north end of the city.  It is reported that,on or about the  1st of May two trains daily will be run  on the Spokane Falls & Northern railway between Spokane and Kootenay  and Boundary points.  William Spier, manager of the Eastern Townships Bank at Grand Forks,  went to Winnipeg last week, and the  report is current that he expects to be  transferred to a branch in eastern Canada shortly.  The Grand Forks public school is  now educating about 70 children living outside the city limits. It is pro-  'posed to enlarge tfieT school district to  take in the territory from Gilpin's to  Fourth of July creek.  Monday night the Grand Forks city-  council granted the Kettle Valley lines  running rights through Third street in  that city, work on the North Fork extension to start by April 1st, and the  line to be completed to Franklin camp  by August 1, 1907.  To save its Dominion subsidy of  $6,400 per mile, which will go a long  way towards building the road, the  Kettle Valley lines will now lose no  time in building up the North Fork of  Kettie river, from Grand Forks to  Franklin camp, about 45 miles.  Now that Phoenix has mail service  over the Great Northern, Greenwood  thinks it should be treated likewise���  and it should. If it takes as long,  however, to put it into effect for  Greenwood as it did for Phoenix, some  time in 1907 the accommodation will  be provided.  The Kettle Valley River Railway-  Co. will apply to the Dominion parliament for power to run over the C.P.R.  and branches from Grand Forks to  Midway, to increase its capital stock to  five million dollars and to construct a  line from Midway to Hedley and for  twenty miles north of Hedley up  Twenty Mile creek.  BEASTS KILLED  TWO NAVVIES  Fatal Accidents on V..V. & E.  Construction.  Happened a Few Miles West  of Midway.  Two men were killed and several  others injured last Saturday and Sunday on the line of the V., V. &'E.  railway construction, a few miles west  of Midway, the fatalities being due to  premature blasts. One accident happened on the work of T. J. Gallagher  and the other on that of Johnson &  Anderson.  Saturday afternoon a series of shots  had been fired by electricity on the  Gallagher contract, and William Richards, the foreman, and the gang of  men were returning to work,' when a  hole that had missed fire went off as  they reached the spot. Richards died  as he was being taken away, and nine  of the men were injured, but none very  seridusly.  In the second accident, which occurred at five o'clock Sunday morning  in a tunnel some 300 feet from the  mouth, the night men had finished  drilling and two rows of holes were  being spitted, when one or two holes  went off and the seven laborers were  showered with rocks. The first row of  holes knocked two men down and  when the second row went off they  were covered with tons of rock. J. H.  Quinn, the foreman, when taken out,  was found to be in bad shape, with  broken limbs and many bruises. A  Fmlander, Mat Lake, was. terribly injured, and died before reaching the  railway hospital at Midway. His left  leg below the knee was gone, one eye  out, jaw broken and the body terribly  bruised.  Qretnwood Miners Voted $500.- for. Defeace.  ��� At a regular meeting of Greenwood "  Miners' Union-No.-22, ;held lastSatuti  day ni^ht, unanimous resolutions were  passed expressing confidence in Chas'.  H. Moyer, president, and   William C.  11 ay wood,  secretary,   of the   Western  Federation of Miners, who were arrested and thrown in jail recently at Boise, ;  Idaho, charged   with   complicity with ;  the death of ex-Gov. Frank   Steunen-  berg,   of  Idaho,   at   Caldwell in that  state.    The resolutions also denounced  the conspiracy   of the  Mine  Owners'-'  Associations of  Colorado and Idaho  for the endeavor to disrupt the Western   Federation   of   Miners,  and  the  union voted the sum of $500 to be devoted   to   the  defense of Moyer and  Haywood.  Saturday evening Phoenix Miners'  Union No. 8 also passed resolutions  much to the same effect, and notwithstanding the heavy drains on the treasury of the union in the last few months  in erecting a $20,000 hall and opera  house, as well as in paying benefits to  members during a typhoid fever outbreak, it was decided that financial  assistance would be given if- needed.

payers to ask why all this investigation
into private characters in the Kaien
island inquiry, that has been goinjj on
at the coast. It is a dead sure thing
that the leader of the opposition, J. A.
Macdonald, of Rossland, has not
accomplished anything worth while by
all this fuss except to .-.tir up matters
in which the government has no particular concern. In short, as far as
mixing the government up in a graftp
as was expected, is concerned, it has
been a dismal failure.

Once again the question of having a
purely Canadian Associated Press is
being agitated, and it is to be earnestly hoped that this time it will be carried to' a successful issue. The service now given by the C. P. R.
telegraphs is mighty little better than
none, and as for foreign news, coming
through American channels as it does,
it is not surprising that it has an American flavor. If a man breaks his arm
or stubs his toe in Skaneateles or
Schoharie, New York, a story a yard
long is wired over the contintent about
it; but if a serious collision takes place
in Ontario, Canadian papers are given
about four or five lines regarding the
catastrophe. It is about time that an
improvement was made.

Alberta's new legislature is to meet
in a school, and the Toronto Telegram
is of the opinion that the Scott part of
Saskatchewan's new legislature should
meet in jail.
Sir William Meredith, chief justice
of Ontario, intimated the other day
that the legislature should consider
and remodel the present legislation respecting solicitors' costs. Referring to
the case before him on the occasion
referred to, he said : "After winning
the case the plaintiff was worse oft than
though he had not contested the
claim at all."
Boosting seems to be the order of
the day, that is taking on almost everywhere in the west. Commercial clubs,
tourist associations, etc., are all taking
a hand in it, and best of all, they are
making if tell. If any district ever
had something worth boosting, that
district is the Boundary. Now, then,
what is the matter with every resideni
ofthe Boundary taking hold with both
hands and boosting for all he is worth?
There's a lot more in it than there is
in knocking.
It is pleasant to note that both the
Greenwood and Grand Forks boards
of trade are occasionally doin^ something. But the Phoenix organization
of the same nature is still in the first
stages of its Rip Van Winkle sleep. It
is a mistake, gentlemen, a mistake.
Boards or trade can be, and are made
—have been so made in Phoenix, in
fact—most useful adjuncts for the
good of the community. Who will
make the first move towards reorganizing the Phoenix board of trade ?

To say that your business cannot be

admission that to tell the truth about it
would be damaging; that the less
people know of it the better for you.
The.housebreaker cannot advertise

there are some few other businesses
that nobody would claim could be advertised with profit; but they are not

law and medicine, the ethics of which
do not permit advertising. This does
not alter the fact that a lawyer's or
doctor's business might be advertised
with profit, but it makes it difficult to
do so. until the doctors and lawyers
learn what the bankers are just learning—that advertising may be dignified
enough for any business and yet bring
Advertising is telling what you have
to sell, how much it costs, where it can
be found, and why people should buy
it. Anything that does this, any way
of doing it is advertising. To' admit
that you cannot do this is to admit
there is something wrong witn your
business. If you cannot let people
know about it; if you are ashamed of
it; if knowledge concerning it would
bring unfavorable results to it or
humiliation to yourself, you have no
excuse for conduating it.
The first two months of 1906 show
an ore output from Boundary mines,
and a smelter treatment from the three
district smelters, of more than 200,000
tons—or, let us say, roughly, of a valuation of an even $1,000,000. II
this keeps up for twelve months, of
which there seems no doubt, by the
end. of the year the district will have
produced some $6,000,000 in value
from the metalliferous mines alone.
As a matter of fact, there is every indication that the output will grow larger
as the year gets older.
An exchange asks most pertinently,

It Helps Ibe Town.
The average reader is accustomed to
seeing in any pnper he may pick up the
practice of advertising advocated. He
often thinks that the spirit which
prompted the writer of that article was
merely one of immediate gain—that
the writer merely intended to induce
some mercantile establishment to give
his paper patronage. Newspapers often
urge their merchants to advertise and
in so doing often justly contend that it
will pay all concerned. But there is a
deeper meaning in this agitation for
extensive advertising. It is an indispensable element in progress. Newspapers have discovered this and taken
up the cry as they continue hammering
at any other enterprising and progressive proposition. History, experience
and reason teach us that to be favorably known is the chief foundation of
success. As a community we must
uphold the principle of advertising and
all other progressive steps, or be relegated to the side of others that sleep.

If you want to succeed as a com-
nnuvty remember your local paper,
says an exchange. It fights for you,
and is really,the summary ot the ideas
of the best people in your midst. A
newspaper is entitled to some measure
of success, even as you are successful.
It has its part to fight out, even as you
have yours. Its effort is the measure
of your effort to the outside world.
It is more fun to see a man read a
puff on himself in a newspaper than to
see a fat man slip on a Uinana peel,
wisely remarks an exchange. The
narrow minded man reads it over
seven or eight times and then goes
around and appropriates what copies
he can. The kind hearted man goes
home and reads it to his wife and then
goes around to the ofti.-e and pays
what he owes. The .successful business m.m who advertises regularly and
makes money by it, im .lediatcly starts
out to find the editor, and ihey walk
silently down the street and the business man takes sugar in his'n nnd they
both eat a clove or two and life is
sweeter, and peace settles down on
their hearts for a moment. Such is
the experience of mustard seed that
falls on different ground.

Announcement conies from Ottawa
that beginning the 1st of March a campaign is to be inaugurated for the pur
pose of ridding Canada of foreign silver
as money. The work will be done
through the banks, the silver tc be
forwarded to Ottawa, whence it will be
sent to Washington. There is no reason why there should not be sufficient
Canadian silver to answer all purposes
of business in the Dominion, and if
the proposed plan is carried out Uncle
Sam's cartwheels will soon begin to
grow scarce, even in places along the

that this paper is still willing to accept

M. 8TKPHKNS, Afc-elK.  rlioenijc  S O. VKKKK8.A. O.P. A.,  StattlcJ  The following was published in the  British Columbia Mining Record for  January regarding the progress being  made in the promising district on the  western edge of the Boundary known  as the West Fork of Kettle river :  During 1905 more work was done  in the mining camps ofthe West Fork  of Kettle river than in several earlier  years, for the reason that the construe  tion of the Mid way-\ ernon railway  was commenced, the route ol this line  being up the West Fork and over the  summit to Mission creek.  Between Rock Creek and the confluence of the West Fork with the  main Kettle river are two camps���the  Riverside and Crown Point. The former is about four miles above Rock  Creek; development work has been  proceeding in it on a small scale, and  occasional shipments of ore made.  Smelter returns have been about $40  per ton, with values in gold and silver.  The ore taken out in driving the tunnels, so it is claimed by the owner,  pays development expenses. Most of  the claims in Crown Point are crown  granted, so, being low-grade properties,  little has been done on them of late  years, nor will there be until the completion of the railway provides transportation facilities.  Up the main river, above the West  Fork, only the annual assessment work  was done, except on the Silver Dollar  and Mogul, which were further developed. Here, again, railway transportation is waited for. Most of the mineral claims in Silver Dollar camp are  on the divide between the main river  and the head of Beaver creek, up  which latter a branch from the Midway  & Vernon line will, it is expected  eventually be constructed from Beaverdell, this being the only practicable  railway route known to reach this section of the district.  In Boomerang camp, about 10 miles  up the West Fork from its mouth, the  only development work, other than  assessments, done during the year was  on the enterprise and S. M. claims.  This is a gold-bearing camp and values  are good.  Ahout three miles farther up, on the  west side of the stream, opposite Bull  creek, the Monte Carlo group has been  worked. A shaft was sunk 50 ft. and  drifts were run. The surface showings  here are 5 to 10 ft. wide, and the ore  carries good values in gold and copper. Thence up to Dry creek there  was little work done, but between Dry  creek and Curry creek there was  activity on several properties, principally on the Rambler, Sally group  and Curry group.  The few men employed on the  Rambler have been stoping ore, of  which there has been sacked four carloads that is estimated to average at  least $150 per ton, silver values being  high. When there is snow the ore is  rawhided to the wagon and shipped  thence to the smelter From the ore  obtained from the high-grade shoot returns are expected to pay for development and leave a margin of profit beside.  Oo the Sallv Group.  Tlie Sally has h:id an average of 15  men at work the year through. Three  miles of wagon road have been constructed from Beaverdell up the hillside to the camp, the grade being 10  per cent; and a two story 32 by 32 ft.  board and lodging house, and a 15 by  20 ft. kitchen have been built. The  year's development work has included  a drift 620 lin. ft on No. 1 lead, one  75 ft. on No. 2 lead and one 64 ft. on  No. 3. Returns from nine carloads of  ore shipped have met the expenditures,  even after paying $16 per ton hauling  charges from the mine to the railway  at Midway. This was sorted ore, the  second and third class grade ore having been stored for concentration later.  The Vancouver Development Co.,  which owns this group, has a water  power at the foot of the hill sufficient  to operate a mill whenever one shall  be put in. A number of slips and jogs  and crushes met with in the long tunnel have caused the superintendent,  Clement Vacher, much difficulty in  carrying on development work, but as  the next level will be in solid forma  tion, the stoping will not be so expensive. Driving south to catch the vein  in solid ground is in progress; this will  pass the big slip and be away from the  ground that has   been so  difficult to  work. Notwithstanding the obstacles  thus far met with, the management is  encouraged by the results achieved,  and is confident that the mine will pay  its way and eventually provide suffi  cient funds (or equipment, and thereafter yield the shareholders dividends.  On the Curry group of five claims,  last summer a tunnel was drivtn 100  ft. on a vein carrying gold values up t<>  $24 per ton in an iron gangue. Work  was also done on the Atlantic Cable  and Comstock claims. There was, as  well, a little development on several  claims on Cranberry creek, on the west  side of the West Fork.  Stamp Mill for Carml.  In Carmi camp very little was done  on the Carmi, which in 1902 shipped  885 tons of ore that averaged between  $30 and $40 per ton. The small experimental mill was not operated after  last spring, but it is stated that a larger  mill will be installed next spring and  the mine be again worked.  Philip R. S. Stanhope and associates  believe they have met with the Carmi  lead in a crosscut they ran on the May  claim near the Butcher Boy boundary.  The character of the ore they extracted from their tunnel left them no doubt  as to their having struck the true lead,  which had faulted on the Butcher Boy,  after passing out of the Carmi, and  which had not previously been traced  beyond the fault. This discovery is  regarded as likely to De of mnch importance to Carmi camp.  From Carmi camp north much pros  pecting has been done in places up the  creeks the Midway & Vernon railway  route follows to the summit of the  divide between the West Fork and  Mission creek, the latter being on the  Okanagan slope of the divide. Many  claims that had been allowed to lapse  have been re-staked, and on some of  these magnetic iron veins carrying a  little copper and gold have been found.  The final location of the line of railway and the construction of the road  is being looked forward to with eagerness, the feeling being general that  after the West Fork shall have been  provided with suitable transportation  facilities it will become a productive  section in some instances of high grade  ore that will yield good profits above  the cost of mining, freight and treatment.  PIONEER SMELTER IN BRITISH COLUMBIA  Wag Located Near   Revelstoke  and   Erected  In   1883.  East Kootenay was the first section  of the interior of British Columbia to  attract the attention ofthe piospector,  says the Revelstoke Mail-Herald. The  exposures of silver-lead ore on Jubilee  and Spillimachene mountains,42 iniies  south of Golden, on the Columbia  river, were the first mineral locations  to attract attention. For years before  he Indians had taken the crude ore  found exposed on the slopes of these  mountains and melted it into bullets for  their hunting expeditions. An old time  prospector named John McRae conceived the idea of mining and smelting  this ore on tlie ground and he built a  smelter of stone and iron on the south  bank of the Spillimachene river, near  its junction with the Columbia.  A gang of men employed by the  government to rebuild the bridge over  the Spillimachene dismantled this old  smelter last week to supply stone for  the piers of the new bridge and bore  testimony to the excellence of the  workmanship shown in its construction. This smelter was built in 1SS3  and is said to have been the pioneer  smelter in British Columbia. The  builder and promoter, John McRae,  died about ten years ago, leaving this  smelter and the development work he  did on Spillimachene and Jubilee  mountains as the monuments of his  work as a pioneer prospector of Kootenay.

It  is, rather, synonymous with a general  broadcast declaration, and the broader  the scope of the announcement the  better the advertising. No occupied  space that directs the attention along  given and desired lines can be reasonably regarded as wasted: nor can any  funds expended to this end be adjudged extravagance. ��� American Medical  Journal.
