Howie-  son, returned   to  town   on Tuesday  from a  trip   to  Comaplix, to which  place he was  summoned   as   a witness for the government enquiry into    the   circumstances  surrounding  the destruction   by   fire   of the sawmill at that place.    It seems that the  various   insurance companies  were  reluctant  to   meet the claims until  the   matter had   been   satisfactorily  cleared   up   by   the   examination  of  witnesses under oath.     Before coming to  Phoenix,   Mr. Howieson was  stationed  at Golden, and Comaplix  was  included  in his   police  district.  A representative ofthe Burns Detective    agency,    who   gave   evidence  stated that   he  had  been   unable to  form a conclusion as to the origin of  the   fires,   although   four  detectives  had been   employed  on  the case for  three months.

The difficulty,   however, was  partially surmounted by her appearance at the usual motion picture entertainment,   the   program  of which  was   curtailed   to   allow   the  singer  sufficient time to render a few of her  songs.     The ordinary admission fee  was unchanged, but a collection was  taken up.  Previous to her entertainment,  Madam Bishop told her audience  that the receipts from the first sixteen of her concerts had netted surfi-  cent to purchase thirty machine -  guns, but that further receipts at  the advice of the militia department  would be donated to tbe newly-  formed Wounded Soldiers* Fund.

While steaming.within   130 miles  District of Bniish CoSumfoEa  RICH  m  MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITiES���  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE I   VESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among tlie richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent-  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of.gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Bhoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent ofthe investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  ofthe province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit  to  some  of iU   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Bouty?  dary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having.been ;  spent on the construction of government roads.  No locality is better served with railroads than the Boundary district.      At  present this section  is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route tothe  ��� Pacific coast will, be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  i.O.O.B.

FOR SALE OR RENT  RHEUMATISM IM  Many people suffer the tortures of lame  muscles and stiffened joints because of impurities in the blood, and each succeeding  attack seems more acute until rheumatism  has invaded the whole system.  To arrest rheumatism it is quite as important to improve your general health as  to purify your blood, and the cod liver  oilin Scott's Emulsion is nature's great  blood-maker, while its'medicinal nourishment strengthens the organs to expel the  impurities and upbuild your strength.  Scott's Emulsion is helping thousands  every day who could not find other relief.  Refuse the alcoholic substitutes.  weapons unless provided with a  license. No exception is made in  the case of air guns. ���  The'Baldwin property on Spion Kop.  Tbe house is in good shape, and will be  sold very reasonable, and on easy  terms.  t.f. D. J. MATHESON.

Charlie Chaplin, universally proclaimed as the greatest comedian on  the picture film stage, will be shown  at the Miners' IJnion opera house  very shortly.

As our contemporary, the Greenwood Ledge predicted, F. Frederick's batch of Rhode Isiand Whites  did very well at the Greenwood fair,  their share of the prize list being a  couple of firsts, three seconds, and  two third prizes. The next appearance of Frederick's champions will  be at the Panama exposition in November. He has a fine pen all ready  for.th j. long trip.  Some maliciously* disposed person, evidently short of firewood or a  bedspread, has taken a liking for  / the advertizing posters ofthe local  motion picture theatre.
