Tuesday morning the eighth annual  convention of District Association No:  6, Western Federation of Miners, began its sessions in Miners' Union  Hall here, there being 14 delegates  present, as follows: Greenwood,  Ernest Mills, H.O.Bretzen and John  ��V.

President Frank Philips, of  Nelson, Secretary Shilland, of Sandon,  and Vice-president Mclsaac, of Ymir,  who were here, comprised the outgoing officials.      -      -   ���    -   ������ -  Many matters  of  importance   were  taken up by the delegates   during   the  three or more days'sessions,  some   of  which are outlined in   the address  President Phillips, as follows ;  To   the  Officers  and    Delegates  District  Association     No.  W F. of M.:  Fellow Workers :���It is   with   pleasure that I accept the   duty   which devolves   upon   me   of .welcoming   the  delegates elected by the various unions  affiliated with this organization,   to represent them at this our eighth annual  convention.     Any   recommendations  that I may make will be such as I   am  convinced will be a   benefit -to'those  you represent and the   entire^ working  class.  During the year there have been no  serious labor disputes, and those   that  have occurred have been   chieily  over  the eight hour work   day   for   smelter  employees.     I am   pleased   to   report  that 75 per cent, of the men employed  in and around smelters in British Columbia are today   working eight hou-s.'  This appeals to   form   an   excuse   for  the majority of our legislators to   vote  against   and   defeat   Davidson's  eight  hour bill for smelter employees, and I  trust that this convention   will not adjourn before fixing a date when   every  man working in and around a smelu-r,  and every miner breaking ore for such  smelters, will be called   out   and   demand the eight hour   day  for   the 25  per cent, now working ten and twelve  hour shifts.      But I  would   expressly  urge you not to relax   your  efforts   to  have an   eight   hour bill   for   smelter  men    and   for men    in   and   around  mines to be placed   upon   the   statute  books   o(   Brisish   Columbia.      Have  legislative  committees    appointed   in  your  locals,   and   let   no  opportunity  pass to advance   legislation  in the interest of the working   class.  Your executive held a session in  January last, as per Article 3, Section  6, ot your constitution and by-laws,  and brought to the attention of your  locals such legislation as in their opinion would be most beneficial to the  workers of British Columbia, such as  amendments to the Workingmen's  Compensation Act, Special Jurors' Act,  non-suits, and refusal to enter verdicts, and voters' lists. I trust each  delegate has come prepared to formulate some plan by which we can secure this much needed legislation.  Shortly after our last convention,  the litigation between the War Eagle  Mining Co. and the Centre Star Co.  vs. Rossland Miners' Union, was settled. While it was not all we would  desire, it was die best obtainable. I  am pleased to slate that since that  time No. .5S has forged ahead and today is one of" the strongest unions in  the distiict.  If some of our small unions would  amalgamate, it would enable thcin to  employ a secretary, or in tbe alternate  a union at large could be formed by  the district and a walking delegate em  ployed under the supervision ofthe  executive board of the district, to visit  all places not covered by any local  union. I am of the opinion that, if  some such method were carried out,  it would give us a more effective organization.  The calling of the convention should  be left in the hands of the executive,  with instructions to call it at least once  a year I make this recommendation, believing our legislative efforts  would have more effe"t if a convention  were called immediately prior to the  convening of the legislative assembly.  Several of our own unions bave  their own halls, hospitals, libraries,  etc , but we have no place for our old  and crippled members. I submit for  your earnest consideration that an old  man's   home   be   established   to   be  owned and controlled by the District  Association No. 6,.W.F.of M. Should  the delegates favor this proposition, I  would suggest it be sent to the locals  for a referendum vote, and if they  vote favorably, the incoming executive be instructed to purchase a small  tract of land in some desirable locality. There are sufficient members of  the W.F.M. in British Columbia to  raise the necessary funds to carry out  this project and maintain the same at  a very small per cent, per member.  I beliive that Article II, Section 2,  ofthe W.F.M. constitution should be  so amended that 110 member of the  executive board should vote any proxy  unless it be from the union in which  said officer holds membership.  It is with deep regret and resentment that we note the actions of the.  capitalist press, in its efforts to prejudice public opinion against our officers now under arrest in Idaho, on  the charge of murdering. ex-governor , Steunenberg and against the  Western Federation of. Miners.  We cannot ^believe any other  than that our officers are, innocent of  any complicity in such crimes, and the  whole transaction appears tq be nor  thing more or less than persecution  ���a foul conspiracy, on, the part of the  mine owners' association to create dissension in the W.F.M. and prejudice  the public against our organization.  But I venture to state thai such actions  on the part of capitalism Will but unite  us stronger than ever before, and react  against the plotters who seek to destroy us. It is up to us to stand together and stand by our officers who  have stood by us, thus incurring the  wrath of the Standard Oil gang of pirates. .'���--'  The Taft Vale decision in England  has had its effect in arousing the people of this continent, who will render  a decision such as will control our legislators, judiciary and militia, that the  death knell of capitalism will ring,  when liberty and industrial freedom  will be established and labor reign  supreme.  Your secretary-treasurer's report will  show that our organization in British  Columbia is stronger, both numerically  and financially, than ever before in its  history.  In conclusion, I,.wish, to." express my  appreciation of the untiring efforts and  interest of your financial secretary, as  well as the ever ready assistance of  the vice-president. . Thanking the  members in general for the courteous  treatment accorded me throughout my  term of office, and assuring you that I  will do all in my power to assist my  successor with the duties of his offiice,  I remain,  Yours for   industrial   freedom,  Frank Phillips.  Many matters of interest to the  miners generally have been taken up  at the various sessions of the convention, but which have not been made  public. Thursday afternoon the delegates were taken through the Granby  mines by Supt. Smith, and Thursday  evening a mass meeting was held, followed by a dance, bolh being well attended.  The new officials chosen for the  district association were as follows:  President, Frank Phillips, Nelson, reelected ; vice-president, I. E. Phar,  Grand Forks; secretary-treasurer,  Andrew Shilland, Sandon, re-elected.  Moyer-Haywood Resolution.  Thursday evening an open meeting  was held in the lodge room and there  was a large number of ladies present,  the room being filled to overflowing  with miners, delegates and business  men generally. Martin Gillis occupied  the chair and the music was by Harry-  James. Mayor Rumberger welcomed  the delegates, saying that when he was  a working miner he was a member of  the federation. Robert Bulmer, of  Rossland, I.E.Phar, of Grand Forks,  Ernest Mills, of Greenwood and A.S.  Embree, of Phoenix, also made addresses, and the latter offered the following resolution for the consideration  ol the meeting, which was unanimously adopted :'  "Resolved, by the eighth annual  convention of District No. 6, Western  Federation of Miners, in convention  assembled, that we express our confidence in the innocence of Chas.Moyer,  Wm. I). Haywood and George Petti-  bone and others of our brothers, in  respect to the heinous crime with  which they are charged ; that we most  emphatically resent the reflections  cast upon these men and the Western  Federation of Miners by the capitalist class, associating the names of our  officers and our organization with that  of murderers, sluggers and outlaws;  that we extend the hand of brotherhood to our brothers in jail, bidding  them to take full confidence that justice will triumph, pledging them our  support, financially and morally, in the  present crisis ; that we bind ourselves  together in the bonds of fratemity  more firmly than ever in this hour of  need, and pledge ourselves to join  hands with our brothers in the United  States for the protection of our brothers under indictment in Idaho and  Colorado."  Following die meeting an adjournment was made to the spacious dancing hall below, and those so inclined,  several hundred of them, enjoyed  themselves till an early hour yesterday  morning.  The  convention   finally   adjourned  CONTRACT FOR  DITCH LET  City  Held  Council Paid  Team.  $450   For  Boundary Mining Notes?  Long   Session  day  Night.  Wednes-  A Wednesday's bi-weekl> meeting of  the city council there were present  Mayor Rumberger and Councilinen  Oxley, McKenzie, Brown, Kane and  Carson. A number of important matters came up for consideration, among  them the fluming of Twin creek above  Church street, and the improvement of  the fire department apparatus. The  bids lor the digging of the Twin creek  ditch were opened, and the contract  awarded to Win. Fleming and James  Murdock, the following being the tenders in detail :  I. H. Morrison���dirt, 79c; hard  pan, $r.25; rock,$1.50.  Wm. Fleming and James Murdock  ���dirt and hardpan, 75c. per yard;  rock, $1.50.  T. J. Hogan���earth 75c. per yard;  rock, $1.  Martin S. Caine and R. I). Mitchell���75c per lineal foot, or $1.65  |>er cubic yard.  Lemuel Fife���dirt, 45c. per lineal  foot; hard pan, $1.50 per yard; rock,  $2 per yard.  A long discussion followed regarding ihe size of the flume and uther details, and it was finally decided to have  ihe necessaiy levels run y an engineer,  and that the board of woiks should  oider the lumber for making the flume  two feet square, the entire work to be  done under the supervision of the  board of works. The flume will run  from Church to Second streets.  Murdock Mclntyre wrote asking  permission to build a spray for carriage  washing over Aetna avenue at the rear  of his stable, and it was granted subject to the approval of the board of  works in all particulars.  The subject cf purchasing a city  team then came up, and after talking  it over pro and con it was decided to  take the team brought from j. W.  Jones at Grand Forks on approval, at  $450 and also to purchase a wagon in  Greenwood for $100, and some harness, etc. The mayor did not favor  the purchase, but Aldermen Kane,  Oxley and Carson thought it a good  thing ter the city, and their.opinion  prevailed.  On being approved, the following  accounts were ordered paid :  W. H. Docksteader  . .$ 17 4s  R. J. Gardner      15 00  J. W. Jones    450 00  J. B. Boyle        3  20  The account of Drs. Gordon and  Boucher for $1,000 for services during the typhoid outbreak, was ordered  returned with a request to render an  itemized  account.  As one of the large furnaces was being repaired at the Granby smelter this  week, the shipments and treatment are  somewhat smaller than usual.  A boiler and  pump   have   been in  stalled at the Prince  Henry  mine,   to.  unwater the mine preparatory to a continuance of sinking the main shafl.  It is understood that the Jewel  mine.Long Lake camp, where work has  been going on in a quiet way this winter, is to be the scene of considerable  activity this summer.  H.Park, of Salt Lake City, has been  making an examination of the Sunset  mine, Deadwood camp, this week, for  the Dominion Copper Co. This property is said to be giving unexpectedly  good results from the ore  shipped.  Some development work is to be  done on the Humming Bird group, on  the North Fork of Kettle river. Sig.  Dilsheimer, of Colville, and j. Carl  Williams, of Spokane, were in Greenwood this week arranging the matter.  F. L. Underwood, president, XV. H.  Thomas, engineer, both of New York,  and J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., came in  from the east this week, on a visit of  inspection to the mines and smelter  of the company near Greenwood.  The work of erecting the new hoist  house, ore bins, etc., at the Skylark  mine is now practically completed by  Contractor Alex.Strachan. The deepening of the shaft from the 150 foot  level will shortly be started at this  property. The last car of Skylark  ore went $165 to the ton.  Lord Ernest Hamilton, of London,  England, interested in the Hall Mining  & Smelting Co., of Nelson, visited  the Emma mine, Summit camp, this  week, accompanied by J.J.Campbell,  of the Hall smelter, the smelting company and the B.C.Copper Co. being  joint owners of the property.  The force of men at work on the  Moreen, .in Deadwood camp, by the  Alliance Gold and Copper Mining Co.,  of Minneopolis, have driven the tunnel in over'ioo feet and are now starting to sink. They have struck ten  feet of fine copper ore, much to the  satisfaction of Manager Shallenberger.  GLOUCESTER  AT $40,000  G. A.  McLeod Secures  .Claims.  More  Has Big Group in Gloucester  Camp.  Held First Meelint.  This week the first meeting of McRae & Smith, Ltd., a newly incorporated concern, was held and the first  board of officers chosen, as follows :  President, W. F. Smith; secretary-treasurer, John McRae: directors, John  McRae, fames McRae, D. C. McRae,  W. F. Smith and Alex McRae. The  corporation has taken over the stock  and business of McRae Bros. & Smith,  with stores in Phoenix and Midway,  and the head office of the concern will  be in I'hocnix. The business was  first established here in 1S99, and has  grown to its present dimensions with  the growth of Phoenix.  Messrs. J.C. and A.J.MacDonald,  proprietors of the new steel works, at  Grand Forks, have ordered $4,000  worth of machinery from the Jenckes  Machine company, of Sherbrooke,  Que. The machinery is to be delivered  there within three  months.  Allan Morklll Watched.  Tuesday evening 15 or 20 friends of  Allan Morkill assembled at the Boyle  fiats and presented him with a gold  watch and chain as a token of esteem,  the address being made in fitting  words by O. B. .Smith, Jr., Mr. Morkill making a feeling response. Mr.  Morkill left Thursday for Rossland  and Spokane, and will proceed to  Sherbrooke, Quebec, whence he has  been transferred from the local branch  of the Eastern Townships Bank,where  he has been ledgerkeeper for thiee  years or more, and where he has made  many friends. His mother will meet  him in Spokane.  One of the most progressive mining  operators in the Boundary is George  A. McLeod, of Grand Forks. Last  fall Mr. McLeod persuaded F. Aug.  Heinze, to take an interest in the Mc-  Kinley group, in which McLeod is in-  teiested, and work on the group is expected to be started shortly and pushed '-vigorously this spring and summer.  Since then Mr. McLeod has increased  his holdings considerably in that camp,  the latest being a deal made this week  by which he secured an option for two  years on the Gloucester fraction, Doris  and Iron Cap mineral claims in Gloucester camp, not far from McKinley  camp, for $40,000.  This property adjoins the Gloucester, G. II. and G. H. fraction, acquired by Mr. McLeod for himself and  associates a short time ago, and gives  them 4,500 feet of ground along the  strike of the ore body. Work is being  carried on at the G. H.t and the property is opening up well, the lead being  traceable for over 4,000 feet on Gloucester and Gloucester fraction. It is  said that the Gloucester has a 50 foot  shaft, and ore averaging 13 per cent  copper with $4.50 in gold and silver.  The former owners of the three.claims  just bonded were H. B. Cannon and  H. C. Kerman.  ..  Inspected New   Suk-Slatioi.  Lome A. Campbell, manager of the  West Kootenay Power & Light Co.,  was a visitor in the city yesterday,  and inspected the recently completed  sub-station built by his company here  uncer the supervision of J.B.Henderson, finding everything practically  complete and ready for the installation  of the machinery. He went to Greenwood with Mr. Henderson to arrange  for the site for the company's substation there, to supply the British  Columbia Copper Co. with power, the  station in Greenwood to be a replica  of the station in Phoenix, Mr.  Campbell had nothing to say just now  regarding the matter of his company  being permitted to supply power in-  the Boundary.  yesterday morning, and most of the  delegates left for their homes by the  C.P. R. train yesterday afternoon. Before closing the proceedings, however,  the following resolution was unanimously passed :  "Resolved, that the hearty thanks  of the delegates in attendance at this  convention be due and are hereby accorded to the members of the Phoenix  Miners' Union, to the citizens of  Phoenix and to the management ol  the Granby mine, for courtesies extended to the delegates, and the general and lavish hospitality wilh which  they have been entertained. Further,  the delegates desire to note their indebtedness to the ladies of the city of  Phoenix who were identified with the  members of Phoenix Miners' Union  in the matter of the dance given on  Thursday, March 22nd, 1906."  The net increase in inembcship ot  District Association No. 6 since the  last convention is given as 1011. Last  year there were 2,800 members, while  now there are 3,811 members in  various unions in the association. The  next meeting of the association will be  held at Rossland.  Watch Phoeuix Grow.  Thursday afterooon a little daughter  was welcomed into the family of Mr.  and Mrs. George D. Turner, corner  Second street and Grey Eagle avenue.  On the 20th inst. a son arrived  to Mr. and Mrs. John Wray, at the  Gold Drop mine.  Monday last Mis. James Peacock,  residing on Granby place, presented  her husband with   a son.  On the 14th inst. a daughter was  born to the wife of H.Blaine, Dominion avenue.  Opera House Openln(.  It is proposed to open the new  opera house some time in May, the interior work now being well advanced,  and a play will be put on by local  talent, for the benefit of the building  fund of the Miners' Union. Harry  James, well known locally, and R. B.  Gates, formerly with the Harold Nelson  company, have the details of the  matter in charge, and expect to present a show that will appeal to the  public. They are in need of a few  volunteers for this purpose, and applications can be made to either of  them.

In the Northwest, Straits Settlements  silver is being .considerably circulated.,  Its value is considerably rbelow that of  American or Canadian silver coins.  Themany friends of Duncan" Ross.i  M.'P., of Greenwood, will regret to  learuvof .his being reported -down with  diphtheria in an Ottawa- ��� hospital, rand  will wish'him a speedy  recovery.  It ��� is little> wonder that' the mine;  owners of this-;*.vi/on feel encouraged  to push ahead with all speed, with  copper selling at more than 18 cents  per pound. If the Snowshoe should  resume operations, it would be another  good piece of news, but so far not a  word is heard in the matter.  While United States silver is being  collected by the banks for deportatio/i,  readers of this great family journal  should remember that two ot Uncle  Sam's cartwheels are still good for a  year's subscription to the l'ioneer.  Delinquent subscribers should make a  particular note of this interesting fact.  James, the brother of John���he of  the Dunsmuir millions���according to  dispatches from Ottawa, in talked of  again for the position of lieutenant-governor of this province. But there are  a lot of people who labor under the  idea that some one else could fill the  bill to much greater advantage to British Columbia.  From Lethbridge comes the report  that the strike now on in the coal  mines of that place may be extended  to mines of the Crow's Nest Pass, the  miners in that section all belonging to  the United Mine Workers of America.  It is to be hoped that calm councils  will prevail and the difficulty be adjusted.; without dragging in a goodly  share of the miners of British Colum  bia.   Most citizens; will commend the  city, council for its expressed intention,  shown in the purchase of a city team,  to see that sanitation is belter looked  after in the future, especially as regards the refuse of back yards, etc.  This winter this town has had its experience with a typhoid fever outbreak,  and there is no desire to see it repeated.  There should be work enough to keep  a city team busy on street improvements, when not otherwise engaged.  ot  -Not a word comes of what the C.P.R.  intends to do about giving the Dominion Copper Co. shipping facilities from  the Idaho mine. If Canada's greatest  railway lets this business go over to its  rival, the Great Northern, which. already has rails on Idaho ground, they  will -make another tactical mistake,  and deserve to lose the large tonnage  eventually to be obtained from the  Idaho mine���one of the best in the  Dominion Copper group in this camp.  The coast dailies���those . of the ultra Grit stripe���not having been successful .in their predictions of the  downfall of the McBride government  during the recent session, are now  busy, in red as well as in black ink,  in digging its grave anyway. But  then, politics is meat and driak to  some people.  American press reports recently  noted that last Saturday was Grover  Cleveland's birthday���and everyone  in the Dominion was apprised of the  fact through the news agencies. Is it  not about time to stop dishing up such  So far, nothing definite is known as  to what the West Kootenay Power &  Light Co. will do about arranging lo  deliver electric power in the Boundary.  Although this company has its long  distance lines completed and its expensive sub-station built in Phoenix,  its1 charter was not amended so as to  permit it to do business in the county  ol Yale. While it is the general opinion that some solution will befound,  it will be some relief to mining men  and residents of- the Boundary if the  solution is found sooner rather than  later.  .Mrs. "Jimmie" Anderson, who is  not unknown in the upper country,  and who has figured not a little in the  investigation of the Kaien island deal  by the legislature, was out .the other  day with war in her eye, Editor Dunn  of the Victoria Times, and J. A. Mac-  donald, lender of the opposition, both  of whom had paid their compliments  to Mrs. Anderson, being the object of  her search, armed with a horsewhip.  So far the editor and politician have  escaped unscathed, except perhaps for  a tongue lashing of no mean proportions.  Within the last year or two fruit  lands around Nelson, on Kootenay  lake, have been rapidly taken up, and  utilized to the best advantage. This  has brought land sharks into the field,  who are endeavoring^ to do business  by selling mountain tops, rocks, etc.,  to the unsophisticated easterner. One  such concern is styled the Pillsbury  Land Co., of St. I'aul. The Nelson  Daily News and the citizens generally  of that place denounce the proposition  in unmeasured terms, and qui'e properly sound a note of warning. There  seems to be (;ood land around  Kootenay lake, but it is not on the  summits of the surrounding hills.  {    THE OBSERVATORY  I THINGS  T*LK��D OF   AT  i HOMK 1HD KLS��W��������  A reader ot the Pioneer in Massachusetts sends us the following, taken  from the Daily Mining Record,  Denver, Colo:  Boundary's mines and smelters are  well described in the   special   holiday  number of the Pioneer,   published   at  Phoenix, B. C. The seventy pages   of  this issue are printed on   heavy   paper  and   are profusely    illustrated.      The  text bears evidence of careful  and  ac  curate work.    From the mines of  the  Boundary country, lying just north   oi  the   international   boundary    between  the United States and British   Colum  bia, comes a large yearly  addition   to  the production of  the   province,   and  their future is promising.     The following bit of veise, quoted from the Pion  eer, seems to  express   the   sentiments  ol the Boundary people:  ���'Tliere'8 one thing we'd like to eay :  If it ever comes your way.  Do not fail to take a  look at- Bonn  dary's mines,  In the future they'll be famou?,  And none but an ignoramus  Will wish to be in darkness on   these  lines.

He  went to see the editor about it, and  the editor showed him a few duns of  his own���one for paper, one for type,  one for fuel and several others, to say  nothing of the wage account. "Now,"  said the editor "I didn't get mad when  these came, because I knewthat all I  had to do was to ask several reliable  gentlemen like you to come and help  me out, and then I could settle all of  them." When the subscriber saw how  it was he relented, paid up and renewed for another year.  We find the following going the  rounds of the exchanges:  "The largest body of galena ore  ever seen British Columbia or anywhere else is in a property near ��ViI-  mer in East Kootenay. The ledge is  over 135 feet wide, carries no silver,  is fair in lead and well up in zinc. A  well known company has an option on  the mine, but inadequate transportation facilities handicap shipping at  present."  It is quite certain that the writer of  the above paragraph had never heard  of the Knob Hill or Old Ironsides'  mines in this' camp, with ore bodies  from 250 to 400 feet wide, at least  3,000 feet long and extending' down;  as far as China���or at leas! as deep as  shafts have been sunk, 500 or 600  feet, with diamond driU holts as much  deeper and all in ore.

It is currently reported in Princeton  that a final payment has been made on  the Sunset group by the British Columbia Copper Co., and that woik  will be resumed this spring.  The owners of the Province mine  up the South Fork of Kaslo creek  have signed a contract 10 ship 2,000  tons of concentrating ore to the Cana  dian Metal Co.'s custom mill at Pilot  Bay.

To the shareholders of  The Dominion Copper Co., Ltd.:  You are advised that at the meetings  of the shareholders held on February  xsstli and February 27th, 1906, a  special resolution was passed amending the memorandum of association of  the company by striking out the 4th  section thereof, which provides that  "The capital of the company is five  million dollars, divided into five million shares of one dollar each," and  by substituting in lieu thereof the following:  "4th. The capital of the company  is five million dollars ($5,000,000),  divided into Five hundred thousand  (500,000) shares of ten dollars each."  This amendment has just been confirmed by the supreme court of British  Columbia.  March i6th, 1906, has been fixed  as the last day upon which the company in making transfers will issue certificates representing shares of the  denomination of $1 each. The transfer books will be closed at 3 p.m. on  that day, pending the preparation of  the books and records required on the  issuance of certificates for shares of the  new denomination of ten dollars each,  and will remain closed until March 21,  1906, at 10 a.m.'  All the shareholders should deliver  their certificates of stock to the company immediately on the opening of  the books on March 21st, 1906, and  the company will forthwith issue to  them new certificates representing their  respective holdings of the present de- i  nomination of $10 per share. Temporary sciip certificates representing  fractions of a^share have been provided  for use where necessary. Fi actions of  a share should be consolidated by the  shareholders as rapidly as possible,and  turned in for exchange for the regular  share certificates.

B.C  SEE  I Nature's Wondrous Handiwork  You cannot be expected to have faith in  Shiloh's Consumption Cure, the Lung  Tonic, as a cure for Colds, Coughs and alt  diseases of the air passages, if you have  not tried it. Wc have faith in it, and we  guarantee it. If it doesn't cure you it costs  you nothing. If it does it costs you 25c.  That's lair. Try it to-day.  Shiloh has cured many thousands of the  most obstinate cases, and we do not hesitate  to say that it will cure any Cold, Cough.  Throat or Lung trouble. If we did not  believe this we would not guarantee it.  Shiloh has had an unbroken record of  success (or thirty years. It has stood  every possible test without failure.   Further  Proof  is foundain the many testimonials of those  who have tried- Shiloh and been cured.  Mis. Archie Taylor, Asaph, Pa., writes:���  " 1 bought a bottle of Shiloh'i Consumption Cure  and found it very beneficial. 1 have two children,  and they had a terrible cough. 1 gave them  everylhing I could think of. butthey got no belter,  until one evening my hu��band bought a bottle, ol  Shiloh.

Magee, president of the  Hesperus Gold Mines Company, operating the Betts and Hesperus group  on Hardy mountain, left on Tuesday  for his home in Chicago, after spending about two months in Grand Forks,  says the Grand Forks Gazette.  Mr. Magee, just prior to his departure, said that the result of the diamond drill work on his company's  properties had been very satisfactory,  about Soo feet had been bored, and  the location of the main ore body had  been ascertained. The drills had  gone through several nice veins and  splendid ore had been encountered at  the bottom of the shaft where sinking  will be continued and crosscutting  will now be commenced. Mr. Magee  is thoroughly convinced that diamond  drilling is the only satisfactory methad  of prospecting the large low grade  properties of the Boundary, and on  his arrival home, will at once make  arrangements to continue the drilling  until the Betts and Hesperus group has  been thoroughly prospected.  The fact that a 15 foot seam of  molybdenite has been found on the  property, and at a distance along about  25 feet below the bottom of the shaft  is particularly gratifying, as this is one  of the scarcer metals, scarce in large  bodies, which is used for many purposes and commands a high price. It  has not been found in paying quantities elsewhere in southern British Columbia except on a very small scale in  Rossland.  A Word to the Merchants.
