THE DOMINION'S THIRD  TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY  The Canadian Northern,' Which Will Shortly Build Across  British Columbia As a Link in Its Coast-to-Coast Line  Canadian Northern is the Dominion's third transcontinental railway. It  is already in operation from Quebec to  Montreal and Ottawa, from Toronto  to Georgian Bay and northern Ontario, and from Duluth and Port Ar-.  thur to . Edmonton. Seven hundred  miles of additional railway construction will extend Canadiun Northern  from Port Arthur on Lake Superior to  Vancouver, and 400 miles will close  up the gap between Port Arthur and  Toronto. Four hundred miles more  will link Key Harbor on Geotgian Bay  to Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec.  In other words, Canadian Northern  has already completed 5500 miles of  railway and 1500 miles more will enable it to span the continent from  Quebec to Vancouver. The Canadian Northern Railway's maximum  grades from Quebec to Vancouver  will not exceed 26 feet to the mile.  From Vancouver to Port Arthur or  Duluth, it will have a shorter route  than Union Pacific or. Northern Pacific from Seattle to any Lake Superior port, and its low grades across the  Rockies will enable it to handle traffic from the Pacific to Lake Superior  at 60 per cent of the cost to the  AmerL-an lines. Indeed, Canadian  Northern, when its line to Vancouver  is completed, will have the highway of  commerce between the Pacific ocean  and the great lakes. It .will be 20c  miles shorter from the Pacific ocean to  Lake Superior over the Canadian  Northern than over the Grand Trunk  Pacific, although Grand Trunk Pacific's harbor is 500 miles nearer the  Orient than Vancouver. -'  _���Canad ran^j��c��tjnern ^has;uthe^job  mense advantage over all competitors  because of iris.low fixed charges, //'here  are only $600 a mile of interest  charges against all its lines in operation. When completed from ocean to  ocean, its interest charges and taxes  will not exceed $1000 a mile, and  these fixed charges include all interest'way.  on railways, equipments, terminals,  express, grain elevators and telegraphs  controlled by Canadian Northern.  These interest charges of less than  $rooo a mile are highly illuminating  when compared with the $2250 a mile  of interest charges of jthe Wabash, the  $2500 of interest charges of Southern  Pacific, the $3200 foi. .'the Baltimore  & Ohio, the $6600 a mile for the Erie  and the 6300 a mile for the New York  Central, according to' an American  writer. ',|'':  Indeed, one of the greatest achievements in railroad construction evei  known has been the up-building of  the Canadian Northern to the position of a great transcontinental system at such an arnaiing low cost of  construction. This rtew. system has  not only chosen for its own the best  and surest traffic producing territory  across the American continent, but in  grades it has actually [secured the best  railroad highway across the continent  also. '    '  J '  It traverses one continuous pano'  rama of wheat fields! or' wheat lands  from Duluth to Yellow Head Pass,  where it crosses the Great Divide into  British Columbia. From Yellow Head  Pass to Vancouver down the Thompson valley and the Phaser, it will tap  a region of rich pasture and fruit  lands  and   forests.    Its  lines in On-  .......  yr .-  tario and Quebec areS:all planned to  develop the mineral, forest and agricultural   resources of;tthese provinces,  TUMBLE IN GRANBY  COMPANY SHARES  Drop to 50���Mines and Smelter Are AH Right  New York, March 24.���'The break  in Granby, while not directly; connected with the stock exchange,,has  been an important matter, because it  has stirred up a charge of deception  by its . directors.

P. Tierney & Co.,  railway contractors. W. P. Tierney,  head of the contracting firm, was in  Phoenix on Saturday in connection  with the contract and it is expected  that actual work on the hew extension will commence in the course of a  month. ' ���''���;  No more important announcement  ot railway construction in the Boundary district has been made public for  some time and the news will be particularly pleasing news to men interested  in Franklin camp mining.       '   <  The line is now built to Lynch creek,  about twenty miles from Grand Forks,  and the ten miles' extension will. not  only tap important properties enroute,  but will about cut in two the distance  between Franklin camp properties and  railway connection.  Frankin camp has an. ore aiea of  about ten by six miles, the formation  consisting of lime, porphry and conglomerate. Numerous deposits of  self-fluxing  sulphide ores have   been  found with values running from $8 to  $40. Among the principal claims in  the camp are the McKinley, Ajax,  I. X. L., Manhattan, Gold King, the  Bonner group and the Mineral Hill.  Those familiar with Franklin camp  predict the construction of a smelter  near the McKinley gronp as soon as  the railway reaches the camp.  A railway up the north fork taps  many important properties enroute to  Franklin camp, among which are the  Volcanic mountain group, the Golden  Eagle, Earthquake, Pathfinder, Little  Bertha, Diamond Hitch and Bonanza.  It is also authoritatively stated that  construction work on the Midway-  Pen ticton section of the Kettle Valley  line will be coromenced._in June, .for  which a contract for fifteen miles up  the west fork, commencing at Midway,  is about to be let.

Rail;  A ROSSLAND MAN'S  ROCK DRILL PATENT  New Chuck With Big Saving  Over Old Style  H. VV. Schorlemmer, of Rossland,  has invented and recently patented a  rock drill chuck, which, after having  been given a very thorough trial in the  mines of the Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Co., has answered every test  to which it has been put, says the  Miner. It has also been abundantly  demonstrated by the tests that a saving  of more than 25 per cent over the old  style chuck has been effected. The  new chuck has some special ��� features,  the efficacy of which drill operators will  readily perceive.    In addition to being  WELLINGTON BRANCH  RAILWAY BRIDGES  First Completed by Contractor  Murdock Mclntyre  The first bridge on the Wellington  camp railway has been completed,  steel laid across it, and the second is  now under construction.  Murdock Mclntyre, who was awarded the trestlework contracts by Tierney  & Co., has built an imposing bridge.  The construction of a bridge 160 feet  long, with a curvature of about 15  degrees, and too feet high in the  centre, is no small feat, and its completion in a limited time reflects creditably on Mr. Mclntyre.  There is about 200,000 feet of timber  in the structure, all of which  has been  very simple   to  operate  there are no  chuck bolts   and   nuts   to  tighten; all |cut locally and framed  at   Mr. Mcln-  that an operator has to do is to slip in ! 'V^'5 ml11 s,nce  the drill  and   turn   on   the air.    The  drill tightens automatically and never  gets loose while working, as is so frequently the case with the old design.  Consequently the chuck bushing lasts  about four times as long as the older  design. This has been clearly proved  by actual test. All one has to do to  release the drill is to give a slight tap  to the wedge, which is part of the  chuck, and the drill is instantly free.  From this it will be seen that the  changing of the drill can he accomplished much more rapidly than in the  old way. Miners who have used this  new chuck for any length of time,  claim that they can drill as much in  six or six-and-a-half hours as they could  in eight with the old-fashioned chuck.  This is another great saving and but  one more of the numerous advantages j  to be derived from the use ol this new  machine. For the past twelve months  this chuck has been used by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of  Canada, and it has been pronounced  by the management and machine men  alike, the best they have ever been  called upon to operate.  Feb. 1 St., when the  contract was awarded. The immense  timbers used are a revelation to even  those familiar with the local forests.  The timbers were placed in position  by a cable operated by donkey-engine.  It will  pay you  to investigate our  parcel sale today.    E. A. Black.  Odd Fellows it Greenwood.  At Greenwood on Tuesday evening,  degree teams representing Snowshoe  lodge (Phoenix), Gateway lodge (Grand  Forks), and Boundary Valley lodge  (Greenwood), conferred the mysteries  of Odd Fellowship on candidates, in  the presence ol one hundred brethren.  After the mystic proceedings, the  members adjourned to the hall of the  Rebekahs, where the members of the  sister lodge had provided tables laden  with toothsome delicacies, as well as  sweet-scented flowers. F. B. Holmes,  noble grand of Boundary Valley lodge,  presided over a lengthy toast list which  'ncluded pithy remarks from a number  of pioneer Odd Fellows. Among the  Snowshoe members present were: F.  J McDougall, J. C. Tail, F. E. Brine,  L. J. Stalls, J. P. McKenzie, VV. Ross,  U. Paterson, H. Hazelwood, D. Deane,  A. McKinnon, T. Pilkington, E.

Cook.  are running along ,on the same lines  and the same rate of production that  have governed for ;the last few-months,  which, as regards the latter, is greater  than ever before in the company's his  tory.  "My position with the company is  such that the financial end of its business is utterly outside of my province  and stock market movements usually  receive no attention from me. The  present one is so radical, however,  that I could not tail to take notice of  it. To me it came as a bolt from the  blue, and, seeing that Mr. Graves is  holidaying in California, I guess it is  just as big a surprise to him.  COINCIDENCE STRIKES   ENGINEER.  "In looking round for an explanation of so untoward and unexpected  an event, I have been forced to take  cognizance of what may be merely a  coincidence. This is that the slump  in the price of Granby stock immedi-  diately followed the arrival in New  York of President Jacob Langleloth  after a prolonged investigation of the  mine and smelter. I can not help  linking the two incidents as cause and  affect, though, of course, in so doing I  may be guilty of an injustice to Mr.  Langeloth.  "He was at the mine two weeks ago  with a friend. What he may have seen  or not seen during that visit that differed from his preconceived ideas of  the property I have no conception.  Certainly he should have been as fully  informed before his arrival as afterward, since complete and detailed reports of the company's operations  have at all times been made to him or  passed through  his hands.  "As to the rumor that the resignation of A. B. VV. Hodges as manager  has any connection with the slump, I  decline to credit it.  "The whole thing is a puzzle to me  but I suppose we shall find the answer  to it in time and things will gradually  work back to the old basis."  smelting charges.

The dance promises to  be a largely attended event and Werner's complete orchestra of five pieces  will furnish music for the occasion.  Granby Consolidated stock, offered  to stockholders at 85 per share on the  basis of one new share for each ten  held, falls due Monday, March 31.  With 13,500 shares ot treasury stock  thus disposed of, it is not unlikely  that the directors at their April meeting may act on a dividend. Prominent stockholders had anticipated a  $2 declaration at the meeting early in  March, but the directors explained  that until stock became fully paid no  dividend would be forthcoming. New  construction appears at an end, and  the company now has an up-to-date  smelting plant, with eight furnaces  capable of treating between 30,000,000  and 35,000,000 pounds of cooper a  year.  j month.  M. M. Stephens, formerly of Phoenix and now of Prince Rupert, is reported to have bought the Good Luck  mineral claim in the Portland Canal  district and will form a company to  operate it.

A persistent rumor apparently oased  on good foundation is, says the Times  current to the effect that the Canadian  Northern railway is contemplating the  erection of a smelter on the the northeastern foreshore of Esquimalt harbor.  Three demonstration farms are to  be operated this season in the Kootenay, and three in the Okanagan, an  appropriation of $10,000 having been  granted to the government by the  legislature for this purpose.  NATIVE MERCURY  AT FIELD, B.C.  G. S. Flindt, late manager of the  C.P.R. Hotel at Field, is authority for  the statement that he has made a remarkable mineral find there. He had  noticed something blocking the sink  and causing a gurgling sound in the  wsste pipes uf the hotel and oh invest!-  tion found native mercury in the pipes  and sink. He then went to the source  of the water, supply at the base of the  mountain behind the hotel and an investigation revealed native mercury in  the rosks. On this discovery he staked  three claims, and intends as soon as  the snow is off thoroughly prospecting  the ground, and finding but the source  of this extraordinary mineral condition,  which, with the exception of a mercury  deposit in Mexico, is almost unheard  of, though arquerite, which is an amalgam of native mercury and gold, is said,  to be found in French and McCullough  Creeks in the Big Bend and is vouched  for as found in payable quantities in  the Omenica country, British Columbia. The source of the lead deposit  near this mercury location at Field has  always been a mystery to mineralogists,  but if these mercury locations should  disclose sub plutonic influences underlying the schists and limestones there,  new light will be thrown on the whole  problem. .

A cut sustained in the  workshop, a sore which is unattended,  results' say in festering or blood poisoning. You have to lay off for a day  or two. What does that. mean when  pay day comes around ? - Zam-Buk insures you against that loss 1 A little  Zam-Buk applied to such an injury at  the time, or as soon afterwards as pos  sible, prevents all danger of blood-poisoning, takes out the smarting and  starts up healing.  Heads of families know how costly  doctoring is. Be wise and act. on the  preventive line. A box of ZanvBuk  in the home is so all round useful.

Mr. George  Hobden, 108 Manitoba street, St.  Thomas. Ont., says: "I contracted  barber's rash, and the whole of my left  cheek broke out in one mass of red,  watery pimples and sores. These  spread to the other parts of my fare,  until face and neck were covered with  running sores. How far the disease  would have spread had it not been for  Zam-Buk, I don't know. I applied  this balm, and in a short time Zam  Buk effected a complete cure."  The sportsman knows that Zam-Buk  is used by all the "cracks," because it  is the best liniment and embrocation,  Men like Longboat, Sherring of Hamilton, Kelly of the Toronto ball team,  all the famous lacrosse teams and ball  teams use Zam Buk in this connection.

THE COAST REAL  ESTATE BOOM  A regrettable' feature of the Vancouver real estate  boom  is  that it is  crippling  industry   and   development  throughout the province.    The boom  has degenerated into a wild and reckless gambling which has assumed col-  lossal  proportions,  and   the   end  of  which will be the  further enrichment  of a few rich men, while  it will   bring  ruin to thousands just as happened in  the real estate boom  cf Toronto and  Winnipeg some years ago.    An  unde  veloped province can no more support  a great city in the  throes of a  boom  than the human will can control the  tide in Burrard Inlet.    The end ofthe  Vancouver boom must come sooner or  later.    Better far if the  money wasted  in the Vancouver boom were diverted  to the development of the resources of  the province establishing a sound basis  on which to build a great city.���Revel  stoke Mill Herald.

A POSITIVE CURE  FOR INDIGESTION  If you have indigestion, your food  ferments in the stomach and bowels.  It does more; it decays, and the nutritious matter which should go to  make new blood decays with it, and  this leads to an impoverished condition of the blood, to nervousness,  biliousness, constipation, sick headache, bad breath which disgusts your  friends, and other disagreeable and unpleasant conditions.  And all this trouble is caused by  th��? food that doesn't digest, but ferments and oftimes rots in the stomach.  Aiid fermentation is caused by the  stomach not being strong enough and  energetic enough to thoroughly mix  the food with the digestive juices.  M-I-O-N-A is responsible for tens  of thousands of cures. It is such a  positive cure for indigestion and all  stomach troubles that it is guaranteed  by John Love to cure   or money back.  The price of a large box of M1-0 ria  tablets is 50 cents, and they are sure |  to promptly relieve the worst case of  indigestion or gastritis.    Try them.

According to the  latest news, the Union Steamship Co.  hus just been granted a site for tlie  erection of a.fine modern hotel, which  is to cost $125,000, and is intended  chiefly for the accommodation of tourists, who ure going to Suvu in ever-  increasing numbers. The site has  been nllocuted by the Government ut;  un utmost nominal rental for the suko  of contingent advantages to tho colony. Then a scheme of scientific 1  drainage is under contemplation, und 1  the Government of New South Wales -,  has lent one of its ablest sanitary of-,  ficiuls, Mr. Peak, to report upon tho.  question.  The London Amalgamated Radio-:  Telegruphic Co. has sent a represent  tative to, Suva to look into the qucs-:  .tion of a wireless telegruphy instullu-;  tion; und finally, the corner-stone of -  u Carnegie library has just been laid'  by the Governor, Sir Everard' in  Thurn.  Unfortunately there is, a darker side  to this picture of progress.   The colony   has   been  shocked   by   a   brutal  und,   so   far  as    can    be    discovered,-  wholly unprovoked crime on the ISsivo  plantation, near Lautoka.    There wus  a popular young overseer named Hull  in charge of this somewhat extensive  sugar   ground.    Towards   the   end   ot  August,  when he  was  alone  011  the  estate, a coolie boy brought in a message,  between 11  and  12  o'clock    at  night, -to   the  effect  that   there   was  some  trouble  with the tiorses.    Hall  hastened towards the stables, und was  barely  fifteen yards from  his  bungalow when he was suddenly. attacked  in the darkness by a body of eight or  nine   Indians,    ���who    hacked   him   to  death  with large  sugar  cane  knives.  When the body was discovered  next  morning it was found that more than  sixty  cuts had  been inflicted on the  head  and  arms.    The nature of  the  wounds made it clear that his assailants  were plantation  coolies,  and  it I  was   not   long   before   several   arrests I  had   been  made.    Two of the  coolies/  confessed the crime and all concerned /  ���were  soon   under  lock   and   key.     It IJ  has  also    been   necessary   to  put  a  strong guard over them,  as  local  indignation is so strong that fears were  entertained that tbt coolies would be  lvne.hfid.  Led by a Stick of Cugar.  In his reminiscences the late Sir  Henry Drummond Wolff told many  amusing stories of politics and politicians, amongst which is the following:  At the time of an important division  a member happened to be confined in  a lunatic asylum. Every vote was necessary. Arrangements were therefore  made to deliver him at the House at  the moment required, and he was received by the Whip of his party, who  induced him to walk through the lobby by preceding him with a stick of  barley-sugar in his hand. By the  way, Joseph Wolff, the father of the  ed to joSBnh/late Sir Henry, was one of the most  arv idfiQ t���r\ I remarkable men in the history of mis-  ?&Jz!z.t%l* sionary work. The son of a German  rabbi, he became a convert to Christianity at the age of 17. After being  expelled from the Pap.il dominions he  entered the Church of England, but  was nt one time ostracized by the  English clergy. A man of learning,  great daring, and a certain romantic  charm, Joseph Wolff was nevertheless  full of queer ideas, especially with respect to the lost Ten Tribes, whom  he endeavored to discover. He visited  many lands, wus shipwrecked,- was  made a slave for a time, and was also  threatened with execution by some  Central Asian potentate.

CAN'T FOLLOW  LEADER BORDEN  Hon. A. W. Atwater, K.C., former  provincial treasurer of Quebec, who returned to Montreal recently from a two  months' visit to Britain, says the  general view in the mother country was  that it would be far better for Canada  to build her own navy than to make  any monetary contribution to the imperial navy.  "The general opinion I gained in  England," said Mr. Atwater, who was  a minister in the last provincial Con-:  servattve government, "was that we  should earn the respect of England  much more by ihowing capacity to defend-ourselves than; we could by. any  mere money contribution. The latter  would scarcely be noticed in so rich a  country as Great Britain, unless much  greater and more permanent than any  party, here dare advocate, but the idea  of actual physical participation fires  their imagination just as it did- in the  South African war"  Mr. Atwater remarked that hitherto  there had been a certain patronizing  air in England regarding Canada, because they Knew if we ever got into  trouble they would have to pull us out.  But this would all end if Canada had  her own navy, which she must eventually have, and the sooner the  better.  Judge Clement, whom.Mr. Macgpw-  an, M.P.P., hit so severely, has not  been heard from regarding the matter,  but it is stated on good authority that  the judges deliberated whether or not  they would take action, One well  known member of the bench declared  that no judge should sit in British Columbia until Mr. Macgowan retracts or  the matter is judicially settled.

'  Direct from   a   triumphant   tour  ot  England,   Scotland  and   Wales,  Miss  Eileen Maguire of Cork, Ireland, comes  to Canada for a limited number of engagements in trie Star concert course.  Miss' Maguire   has  a   rare  contralto  voice arid sings the songs   that  everyone knows and loves.    She  sings  the  Irish songs in Irish costume  as  only  an Irish   girl  can  sing.    What Jessie  Maclachlan  is   to  the Scotch, Eileen  Maguire  is  to   the  Irish.

Throughout Canada, England and the  United States, Mr. McRaye is  recognized as a foremost dilineator of "The  Habitant," the interesting French Canadian.    Although local  audiences still  insist on Mr. McRaes's reading some of  the old   favorites  such  as "Bateese/'  Mr.  McRaye  is  depaiting somewhat  from his former style and on this tour  will be heard in an altogether new field  of sketches, playlets and humorous im  personations, appearing with Miss Lucy  Webling,   the   dainty   English   enter  tainer.

The Stuttz Players who opened a  week's engagement at the Phoenix  Opera house Monday evening, have  been entertaining large audiences all  week and have been receiving many  compliments from the theatre-going  public.  J. G. and Aggie Marion Stuttz, who  head the company of sixteen, are artists of distinct merit.. They have  been appearing on the stage for many  years, but have lost none of their old-  time ability to creditably portray the  leading roles in splendid plays. Their  repertoire includes a large number of  representations of well-known plays, in  all of which Mrs. Stuttz's natural  ability as an actress appears to advantage.  Mr. Ssuttz is both genial and generous. The entire proceeds of the  opening show, "Until Death We Part,"  amounting to upwards of $100, was  iiven to Phoenix Miners' Union in  recognition of his sympathy towards  'he union.  Today (Saturday) a matinee will be  =;iven at 2:30 p. m. and the company  ��ill close their engagement tonight  with "The Celebrated Case." They  should receive a bumper house.
