Tbe company was  evidently making good returns for the  output made, but had not done any  development to speak ol since starting,  as finances f: r this purpose'had not  been arranged in the general upheaval  in the company's financial end in the  east, the details of which are well  known to our readers. In another  column will be found the latest in regard to the completion of the reorganization plans of the company.  W.-T. SMITH'S  CIIARfiKS.  The following was wired to coast  papers last Monday from Greenwood :  Mining circles in the Boundary are  intensely interested in the outcome of  the unexpected closedown of operations  ofthe Montreal & BostDnConsolidated.  W'.T. Smith, a heavy stockholder in the  Dominion Copper Co., which sold lo  the Consolidated, openly charges that  the action is primarily due to the smelting more than to the loss of copper  matte, and in the accounting of ihe ore  funds due shareholders ofthe Domin-!  ion under the terms of the bond. He  said :  "Net'rly a year ago the Dominion  Copper Co. entered into an agreement  with the Montreal &'Boston Consolidated for the sale of all its properties j in putting  in the Phoenix camp for $480,000, be-1 nu-rb' me  ing on the basis ol 15 cents a share on  3,200,000 shares of stock. 'Ihe purchasing company agreed to pay $ 12,000  per month and $2 per ton on all the  ore shipped from the 1'hoeivx mines  to be settled for every thirty days, and  the proceeds to be applied on th-.:  bond. So far only $96,000 have been  paid and no settlement bad been made  for some 50,000 tons of ore shipped  during the past yo days. In other  words, the Dominion shareholders are  entitled to the distribution of $100,000.  "I have no fault to find with the  management of the mines. Under  Superintendent George M. Collins they  have been placed in splendid position  for shipment. The close down was inevitable through ihe causes slated."  Mr. Smith -also made serious charges  against H. T. Pemberton, the manager,  it is said, but which the  coast  papers  "Any of the smelter men in tie  Boundary know just what we are doing  and the success of our smelting operations is well understood. Everything  is checked up closely, and Manager  Keffer, of the B. C. Copper Co,, which  handles our matte in their converter,  knows,'too. It is a fact, t'lat can  easily be proved, that our slag losses  are as low or lower than any smelter in  the Boundary. As to the financial  matters, referred to by.-Mr. Smith, that  is something that the head officers in  the east have charge of. The close  down was not due to any trouble in  smelting or mining practice."  Asked about the resumption of  operations, Mr. Pemberton said :  "The engineers from the easUhould  ! be here any da> now,  and   I  see  no  reason   why the   mines   and   smelter  should not be in full   operation   again  within the ne*a two or three weeks."  In New York the new plan for the  re rgani'/atio 1 of Montreal & Boston  Consolidated has been made public,  and ihe Wall Street Journal gives the  following synopsis ofthe mattter :  '���The new company will be known  as the Dominion Copper Company: it  will have 2,600,000 shares of stock par  $1, and $700,000 bonds, in lien ofthe  old capitalisation of 1,300,000 shares,  par $5.  "Of the 2,600,000 shares of new  stock, 1,000,000 go to the stockholders,  1,400,000 go as a Lonus with the  $700,000 bonds, and 200,000 shares  go for reorganization exoenses and as a  bonus to Munroe & Muuroe creditors.  As these creditors hold 310,000 shares  of stock they secure 1 )A shares of new  stock for each share of old.  "The new bond issue of $700,000  is all underwritten, 'MacKen/ue &  Mann, the original owners of the Do  minion Copper company, having  underwritten $300,000 of the new  bonds. They will be offered to stockholders a| 90. Underwriters get them  10 per cent less.  "The new company will start off  with its properties fully paid for and  about $250,000 cash in the treasury.  "Smelting operations have been ordered suspen led while the smelter capacity is being increased from two to  four furnaces, which will give it a capacity of "1000 tons per day. A converter plant will also be installed.  Mining'operations will be continued so  as to be prepared to furnish the smelter with 1006 tons o( ore per day when  smelting ' operations are resumed in  about a month.  "The property will have an entire  change of management.''  It will be noted that- the name of  the company is to be the Dominion  Copper Co., Ltd., thetitle of the old  corporation organized in 1899 by Mackenzie, Mann & Co. If this report is  correct, it probably means that the  Montreal & Boston Consolidated has  no provision in its charter for permitting the company to issue bonds, and  to overcome this it has been agreed  between the parties in chief interest  1 hat the old charter and name of the  Dominion Copper Co." shall be' used.  W. YOLEN WILLIAMS  IN. PHOENIX AGAIN  The Preston, a promising claim near  the Crescent, has been secured by  Alex Miller.  It is expected that machinery will be  installed on the Eikhorn soon and de  vclopment resumed.  The employee** of the  Montieal &*  Boston  Consolidated were paid offon  r Thursday of this week.  All free miner's licenses must be renewed by the last day of this month.  All interested should make a note of  thk  Tests on the Hartford group are reported to be satisfactory, but it has  been decided not to do any work  there for the present.  Diamond drilling operations are being started on the H'ollard group on  Fourth of July creek, for. the thorough  prospecting of those properties.  Some of the cars of the dump ore  from the Stemwinder mine, shipped by  the Dominion Copper Co. recently to  the Trail smelter, are reported to have  given surprisingly good values. Although no details are given out now, it  is said that some of the ore gave from  $25 to $50 per ton in all values.  Manager Shallenbergerstarted seven  men at work on his Don Pedro, 111  Skylark camp, one of the group owned  by the Chicago British Columbi.i  Mining Co. The present 73 foot shaft  will be deepened, some drifting done  and ore taken ouf for shipment to the  smelter.     A whim is being put in.  On the Crescent, in Skylark camp,  splendid ore is being taken out, and it  is estimated that about $ro,ooo worth  of ore, running from $100 to $200 per  ton, is now on the dump. The wagon  road to connect with the Great Northern railway, which runs across the  company's property, will be taken in  hand shortly.  For sometime the Skylark people  have been devoting most ol the work  to development, with the most gratifying results. This week, however.Two  cars of ore were sent out, one of high  grade to the Nelson smelter and another of lower grade rock to the Granby smelter. Shipments are h'kely 10 be  more frequent from now on.  A distance of 470 feet has been attained in the long-tunnel on the Belts  and Hesperus, which was started in  February. The foot wall is expected  to be reached at 500 feet, tapping the  ore body at a depth of 225 feet. Itis  the intention to build a 1500 foot tramway to connect with the Great Northern track when shipments are begun.  A meeting of the directors of the  Providence Mining Co. was held  Thursday in Greenwood, and W.-T;  Hunter was chosen to succeed H. V. |  Fuller as secretary of the corporation.  Foreman Dermody submitted a report,  recommending the installation of an  air compressing plant, with another 90  h. p. boiler. President Madden, of  Chicago, and directors Fitzgerald,  Heeney and Scully, of the same place,  were presenr, as well as directors Macy,  Peet and Fuller.

Willson, of Rossland, whose  special business is the moving of  houses and buildings generally, came  in last Saturday, and is now occupied  the Stockholm hotel, for  Stemwinder, on its new  foundations adjoining the Hotel Balmoral.  The Cosgrove broth ers���Patrick H.,  Barney T., and John���with Mrs. P. H.

Becker, of Nelson, who looks  after C.P.R. freight matters in Kootenay and Yale, and incidentally hustles  for new business ;;t competitive points,  was in the city yesterday.  Mr. Williams received a warm welcome from his host of friends in Phoenix, which place he says seems more  like home to him than any place he  has visited in the last ten months.  His health is fully recovered, and he  never looked better in his life. Evidently continental diversions agree with  him.  After visiting his native home at  Bryn Pistyll, Pontbrythallt, Llanrug,  Carnarvonshire, North Wales, where he  had tbe sad duty of assisting in burying  an elder brother during the past winter, Mr. Williams spent a couple of  months in Europe. "It was his original  intention to visit the Rio Tin to copper  mines in Spain, but his plans were  changed. Among other places he  went to Paris, Lyons, Marseilles,  Genoa, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Pompei',  etc., not to speak of the most famous  gambling place in  the  world,   Monte  Carlo.  Mr. Williams noted with pleasure  the improvements at the Granby mines  since he left, which he had been instrumental in bringing up to the stage  where they produced some 2,000 tons  of ore daily. He was kept busy most  of the time while here in shaking  bands with the hundreds of personal  friends in Phoenix. John Rogers  accompanied him to the Similkameen.  Latest Prices in Metels.

This, Joes  not represent a large vot", as many of  the foreign miners were attending  lodge meetings and did not vote. These  are nearly all in favor of the agreement.  The new agreement is to hold until  April 1, 1907, and is practically a: the  same wages as the old one. A few  minor changes in other parts ofthe old  agreement have been made.  D. C.

John  Houston, a noted opponent of the  government���a man, who in the language of the children, took his dolls  and went home, when he could not  secure a position in the McBride cabinet���was a moving spirit in that meeting. F. J. Deane, editor ofthe Nelson  News, the best daily ever published in  the interior of the province, but a dyed  in the wool Liberal, was another member of that meeting. Mr. Deane has  lost no occasion in the past to criticize  the McBride government, and he did  not let this one go by.  JOHN HOUSTON'S IDIOCYNCRACIES.  Probably no man in the Kootenays  is better known than John Houston,  mayor of the city of Nelson and editor  of the Nelson Tribune. He is what  might be termed a strenuous as well as  a practical politician, and he is no less  strenuous and practical as an editor.  In either work he hits out from the  shoulder, and all he seems to care is  that there may be heads to hit, whether  he strikes the right ones or not. Frequently it happens that he barks up  the wrong tree, using columns of type  to bolster up his specious arguments.  But in any event, there is no misunderstanding his position���till he takes a  notion to change tactics.  - Editor Houston's latest effort of  moment is in favor of the C.P.R. and  against the V.V. & E. railway, the line  that is now endeavoring to secure the  right to build into the Similkameen  and on to the coast in its own way and  without subsidy or land grant of any  kind. The able argument ol Duncan  Ross, the member for Yale-Cariboo at  Ottawa, which was recently made before the railway committee and published, is severely criticised and an  attempt made by Mr. Houston to  prove its fallacy, but with little success.  With an elaborate lot of per mile tonnages on ore, coke, etc., the Tribune  man shows to his own satisfaction, at  least, if not to that of others, that the  policy advocated by Mr. Rots and endorsed by thousands in southern British Columbia, would tend to depopulate the towns of this section.  The resolutions slated the government for its action in the Salmo mat  ter, and we held, as did the other  papers referred to, that this was entirely  uncalled for. For thus holding, these  papers were in turn slated by the great  and only Tribune editor, and comparisons drawn as to what would happen  if Chinese and Japanese were employed in the mines or smelters ofthe  Boundary.  I B;C MINING  Comnibr* reports have it that the  Marysville smelter will be in operation  oh or about June ist.  According to the Fernie Ledge the  Great Northern railway intends' to  eiect a smelter in some of the Crow  towns, and its location means great  prosperity to the town in which it is  situated.  One of the late companies formed  to operate in the oil fields of Southeast Kootenay,is the Southeast British  Columbia Land & Oil Company. It  has a capital stock of $375,000, and  the head office is at The Dalles, Ore.  The Kootenay Ore Company's zinc  plant, situated on Kaslo Bay, is now in  operation and working smoothly. Its  capacity at present is about 60 tons  per day, but the building is designed  to enable the capacity to be largely  increased. Results so far averaged in  production of over 50 per cent, of zinc  from ores treated.  Kootenay Engineering' WorRs  NELSON, B. C  Founders and Machinists.

Neither do they believe in  dragging politics into it when a foolish  mill manager at Salmo makes the attempt. It is a time worn saying that  actions count more than words.  Neither the editor of the Trout Lake  Topic, nor that of the Grand Forks  Gazette nor of the Phoenix Pioneer  employs Chinese around bis office or  home, either in setting type, cutting  wood, gardening or at anything else.'  We hope the editor of ihe Nelson Tribune can say as much.  PROVINCIAL.  About 600 men are working near  Michel, and the town has but one  hotel.  The Fernie Ledge announces that  it has been boycotted by Mayor Stork  of that city.  T. H. Atkinson, of Ymir, was cleared of the charge of arson at the Nelson assizes last week.  Rossland is to ne the next meeting  place of the Presbyterian synod for  British Columbia and Alberta.  A. B. Grace, editor and publisher of  the Fort Steele Prospector, will publish his paper at Cranbrook after the  end of the present month.  An Open Letter.  From the Chaplin, S. C, News:  Earl)' in the spring my wife and I were  taken with diarrhoea and so severe  were the pains that we called a physician who prescribed for us, but his  medicines failed to give relief. A  friend who had a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy on hand gave each of us a  dose and we at once fell the effects. I  procured a bottle and before using the  entire contents we were eniirely cured.  It is a wonderful remedy and should  be found in every household. H. C.  Bailey, Editor. Tin's remedy is for  sale by all druggists.  '  If you want the old folks back east  to know all about ihe Boundary, send  them the Phoenix Pioneer for a year  at a cost of only $2.  ��� Proved in Mount- Forest.  Every doctor in this town tried his  best to relieve Mrs. J. Withom of  Asthma; none succeeded. "For years;"  she states, "I was a dreadful sufferer;  nothing gave relief. At times I found  it necessary to have all the doors and  windows open to get my breath. When  in despair I heard of "Catarrhozone."  I used it and now am perfectly cured."  This proves beyond dqubUthat any  case of asthma is curable with Catarrh  ozone. No remedy so pleasant, none  so absolutely ceriain, to thoroughly  cure; try "Catarrhozone" yourself; it's  guaranteed.  Found a Core (or Indigeslfon.  I use Chamberlain's Stomach and  Liver .Tablets for indigestion and find  that they suit my case better than any  dyspepsia remedy I have ever tried  and I have used many different remedies. I am nearly fifty-one years of  age and have suffered a great deal from  indigestion. I can eat almost anything I want to now.���Geo. W.Emory,  Rock Mills, Ala. For 'sale by all  druggists.  A hitch has come up in the negotiations for the merger of the Snow-  shoe mine with large Rossland proper  ties, but there is a strong belief  prevalent that the consolidation will  yet be consummated.  As   is   well   known,   the   Pioneer  opposed the election of Mr. Ross, but  it is only fair to say that Mr.  Ross is  certainly doing excellent work at Ottawa so far, and we believe in giving  him credit for it.    Mr, Ross has made  a study of getting railway competition"  into the Boundary and  Similkameen  for six or eight years, and no one is  ���better acquainted with the subject than  he���not even  the editor of the Tribune.     The policy that Mr. Ross advocates does not tend to depopulate  this country,  but to build it up.    As  between Mr. Ross and Mr.  Houston,  there can be no doubt us to who under  stands the question best.  Staie or Ohio, City of Toledo, j  Lucas Countv I "���  Frank J.

While the 'J ribune states that its  argument is not in favor of the C.P.R.  or any other railway, such a statement,  on its face, is useless. His'j seven  column article tells its own story,  and  Montreal & Boston Consolidated  having ceased operations during the  past week pending examination by  engineer.*-, is occupying the centre of'  the stage for a time. The reorganization is expected to make it one of the  strongest companies operating in the  Boundary. It has the ore, it can get  the men, and it will have the money,  too.  H. Mortimer-Lamb, a resident of  this province for years, and formerly  editor ol the British Columbia Mining  Record, has accepted the position of  editor of the Canadian Mining Review,  published at Montreal, in succession  to the late B. A. T. Bell. Mr. Lamb  did much good work on the B. C.  Mining Record, and it should be a  good thing to have a man on the Mining Review who is thoroughly familiar  wi'h the mining conditions of this lar  western province.  The Root of Neuralgic Headache  Is an irritable condition of the  nerves caused by cold. Relief comes  quickly from Nerviline, the great pain  reliever of today. "I consider Nerviline a magical remedy for neuralgia,"  writes Mrs. E. G. Harris, of Baltimore.  ''But I never worry if Nerviline is in  the house. A few applications never  yet failed to kill the pain. I can also  recommendv Nerviline for stiffness,  rheumatism and muscular pains." In  use nearly fifty years; try Netviline  yourself.  Reward of Virtue.  Frank Oliver was once a poor 'editor, and now look where he is in this  broad Dominion. Frank has climbed  from the ink barrel to a seat near, the  sack in Ottawa by being honest. He  would use language occasionally that is  considered profane, but as far as we  can learn he never stole anything.except a little sleep, and a few ideas from  other papers. We like to see an honest  man get a show in Canada even if he  is a Grit, and we expect Frank will  make them all sit up in Ottawa.���Fernie Ledge. ���  Her Skin Was Yellow.  . "I had only to try Dr. Hamilton's  Pills to appreciate their merit" writes  Miss Annie S. Bryce; of Woodstock:  "My system was out of order. My  blood was weak and thin. I had a  nasty, murky complexion. My skin  was hard and dry. The first box of  Dr. Hamilton's Pills made a complete  change. I felt better at once. Healthy  color came into my face. In about  three weeks I was cured." Dr. Hamilton's Pills effect an easy cure. Try  these good pills, 25c. per box, or five  boxes for $1.00, at all dealers.  Cariboo's First Vehicle.  A vehicle odd and ancient, the first  to reach the Cariboo gold diggings  before the wagon road was completed  in 1869, and which was at that time a  matter of much curiosity to the miners,  has been dug up on the Royston Australian ranch at Alexander, B.C., and  will be on exhibition at the Dominion  Fair to be held at New Westminster  from Sept. 27 to Oct. 7. The vehicle  was the invention of Mr. Royston.  who, with the assisiaivje of Mr. Olson,  propelled it into Qucsnell loaded with  supplies. It has but one wheel, in the  center, and is operated by two men at  a pair of handles, each on either end.  It was peculiarly adapted to getting  over the rough country in the days of  its service.

In this respeci it is interesting to note  in the various districts the number of  tons of ore mined to each man em  ployed. An analysis of the above  table shows, approximately, that, taking the province as a whole, there were  443 tons of ore mined for each man  employed about the mines. In this  respect, however, the districts vary very  materially, since in the Slocan district  the figures show 1 14 tons mined to the  man in the year, in tbe Nelson district  280 tons, in tbe Trail creek (Rossland) I  district 400 tons, and in the Boundary  1,121 tons.  Copper.  There has been   a  further advance  made in the production of copper, the  output this year being 35,710,12s lbs.,  valued at $4,578,o37.  a"  increase of  about  4   per cent, over the preceding  Total.'.���:'... .... .35,710,128 li).  vf'The average assays of the ores of the  various camps, leased upon copper recovered, were vis follows: Boundary  camp, 1.38'per cent, copper; Rossland,  1.12 per cent;, and Coast district, 3.68  percent.  Uentrii DmloomeBl In 1904.  Referring to Boundary mines the report contains the following :  "In the Boundary district the tonnage  ol ore mined has increased 15 per  cent., and this has called for increased  equipment on the part of the large  companies owning their own smelting  plants. These, realizing that the oxidised ores found in the upper portions  of the original ore-bodies were liable to  be replaced at'a greater depth by sul:  phides, have "taken time by the forelock" and secured, by means of purchase or consolidation, all valuable deposits carrying oxidized iron in excess,  securing thereby a supply of such ore  for fluxing purposes.  The average contents of the ore  mined in the Boundary for the past  year was 1.38 per cent, copper, $1.44  in gold, and 0.3 oz. in silver, to the  ton, based upon the statistics of the  district. .To mine and smelt in British,Columbia an ore of this grade at a  profit, it must be done on a large scale  and with the best appliances, and the  ores must be self-fluxing or nearly so.  That a profit has been made argues  that all these conditions have existed,  and, further, that the plants have been  most economcially run.  The company operating upon the  largest scale in the district is" the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Co. The- control of this  company recently passed into the hands  of New York capitalists, and under the  new directorate still further' additions  have been made to both mine and  smelter plants, while additional railway  facilities have been acquired through  an extension of the tracks of the Great  Northern Railway Co.'s'system. From  the company's Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill there were mined over 544,000  tons, while the company has been  operating several other properties  under bond and on shares, for the purpose of obtaining their fluxing or oxidized ores.  The British Columbia Copper Co.  has made important improvements at  the Mother Lode mine, and as most of  the ore is now being quarried, the  company will be able to even further  reduce the cost of mining. The mine  produced last year 175,000 tons of ore,  and the output should be materially  increased next year. The company  acquired a three-quarter interest in the  Emma mine which last year shipped  over 36,000 tons of iron ore carrying  small values, and used as flux by this  company and by the Nelson smelter,  which owns the other quarter interest  in the mine. The company's smelter  treated during the year, including custom ore, etc., some 210,484 tons of  ore, containing 36,403 oz. of gold,  118,419 of silver and 5,081,743 ���������>��� of  copper.  The Montreal and Boston Co. has  been re-organized and consolidated  with the Bropklyn-Stemwinder, Raw-  bide, Athelstan-Jackpot, Sunset and  Morrison mines, thereby insuring a  large and steady supply of ore, which  it will be possible, so to adjust as to  make a self-fluxing mixture, an arrangement which should be of great benefit  to all the parties of the consolidation.  In the vicinity of Greenwood there  are small high grade properties which  have been developed and have produced several tons of ore, running from  $50 to $75 in gold and silver, for  which a ready market is found at the  local smellers. More atttention has  been ��iven of late to this class of small  high-grade deposit, and with very pro-  It   Qairas   Thousands ���  WAKM -weather,  poor appetite,  jfiS: cold drinks and  foods cause a general derangement of  the entire system.

Pinsonneault, box 64, Pres-  cott, Ont., member Order of the World,  of Holyot, writes:  ^ "Peruna is a most excellent preparation, especially for stomach troubles,  conetlpetkm and catarrh. It acts as a  stimulating tonic for tbe entire system.  Induces good appetite and regulates tbe  bowels.  "I have found it very pleasant to take  and very effective and one of the very  few medicines which deserve endorsement.'  "It is often a serious question to know  what medicine is reliable, and I am  therefore glad to give my experience  with Peruna, believing that it will continue to give general satisfaction."���  E. C. Pinsonneault.'  Peruna will be found to effect an immediate and lasting cure in all cases of  systemic catarrh. It acts quickly and  beneficially on the diseased mucous  membranes, and with healthy mucous  membranes, catarrh can no longer  exist.'       ': ���< ���  Completely Cured by Pe-ru-na.  Mr. J. E. Lacombe, 1013 Chaussi, Montreal, Can., writes:  "I suffered for a long time with liver  trouble and after having used several  . remedies without good results, I resolved  to try Peruna.   After a comparatively  short treatment, I am completely cured.'*  Pe-ru-na for lodlfestton.  Mr. Joseph D. Ouyetle, 12 Vitre tit.,  Montreal, Can., writes:  " for more than a year I have been  troubled with indigestion and most  agonizing headaches. I doctored continually, but got no help until I took  Peruna. .���'������-n..'

The following story in  rhyme from  an  exchange,  with its moral, is worth  reading two or three times :  Said the crpceryman to the butcherman:  "It is really a sin  That you buy salt on the wholesale plan,  And don't let me handle the tin."  Then lie hied him back to the grocery  store,  And quickly an order sent  For a few choice hams for family use  And a box of fish for lent.  Said the clothing man to the hardware  man:  'You certainly don't do right,  When you order a suit from the eastern  house  With my big stock in sight."  But the clothier wanted a  new  steel  range,  And it came, as the neighbors know,  In a box he tried to hide in a barn,  Marked, "Timothy Eaton & Co."  The business men then culled a meeting  To see where the trouble lay,  And they all agreed 'twas the editor man  And not"the devil to pay.  "Why don't he roast the department  stores  And tbe peddling fakirs," they said;  "And stand  by  those  who patronize  him,  And give him his dailv bread ?"  So they drew  up a  compact  long and  stromz  Far the editor to peruse,  And waited on him with aspect grim  As he solemnly dug for news.  But the editor  laughed  a  big  horse  laugh  Till tbe gang all took to the woods,  For 'twas written on axle grease letter  beads,  That came with a bill of goods.

If R. A. Brown ever dies.���  and the matteV is open to some doubt  ���we can well believe, that the word  "Sunset" or "Volcanic," or both, will  be seen in legible characters on his  cardiac organ, says the Grand Forks  Gazette. He is the personification of  enthusiasm and ' s'anguinehess. 'We  would like to see his vivid imaginations of the wealth in Coppei mountain  realized, and who knows that they  won't be? The initial step- is taken,  anyway, and a crew of eleven men are  now at work on the famous Sunset.  It has been known for some time  that' outside capital had become interested in the property, and the result is  that aggressive development work will  be steadily pushed along. We understand President Underwood, of the B.  C. Copper Co., is directly concerned  in the new arrangement. Fifty one  per cent, of the stock has been taken  over for $50,000. A sum of $10,000  has been put up for development, and  the balance is to be forthcoming at the  end of fifteen months. Those interested have also bonded ten additional  claims in the neighborhood of the  Sunset.  R. A. Brown located the Sunset in  '88. It is situated on Copper mountain, twelve miles south of Princeton,  on the east side of the Similkameen  river. The shaft is stated to be down  190 feet, with drifting done at the 100  and 150-foot levelr. Mr. Brown claims  that this deal is the result of negotia:  tions carried on by hi in when in New  York three years ago. He affirms that  Mr. Underwood was delighted with the  look of the property on his recent visit,  and that he will be out here again  shortly. The intention is to keep a  force of men continually at work until  the money put up for development is  expended.  We can suit you with a fit or  fit you with a suit that you  will be proud oi.
