British   Columbia   legislature  dissolved   on   Wednesday     and    the  general elections takes place on   Nov  ember 25  ember n  agreement   betweer   **-- ^---        " ��� '  and   the Canadian   Northern  company, Premier McBride   made the  following   statement   in   Victoria   on  Tuesday:  ." 1 have recently been carrying^ on  negotiations with the Canadian Northern railway company for extension  of its lines to the Pacific coast. It  has been my intention not to submit  my railway policy to the people of  British Columbia until I was in a  position to announce a concrete proposition in the nature of a contract with  a responsibleorganization for immediate  construction of the road. This I am  able to do in respect of two lines of  railway, and it has therefore seemed  advisable to dissolve the house and  ask the approval of the people of the  contract which the Government ha��  made. The house will therefore be  dissolved tomorrow, nominations will  be held on Nov. 11 and elections on  Nov. 25,  "We have entered into a contract  with the C.N.R. for the construction of  a road from the Yellowhead Pass to  Kamloops by way of the North  Thompson river, from Kamloops to  New Westminster and Vancouver, and  from a point near Vancouver to English Bluff to make first-class connection  with Victoria, both for. passengers.and  freight, and to build a railway from  Victoria to Barclay Sound.    The dis  tance in all will  be  600 miles.    To  assist the company in the construction  I of the  road,   which   will  cost  about  with nominations on   Nov-1 $50,000 per  mile.    For  security   the  After   the  signing   of  an j Government will hold a first mortgage  between   the  Government ] on the lines of the railway in  British  railway j Columbia, and will   hav-e a  covenant  with  the  company  indemnifying trie  province  against   any   loss.'    By  the  time this railway is finished the CiN.R.  will have at least  5000; miles of line  through a highly  productive country.  The company has already  been  guaranteed from  other provincial  governments interest  on  its Bonds and has  never defaulted in its interest and the  provinces have never been called upon  to pay a  single  dollar.    No  Asiatics  will be employed on  thi construction  and the standard wages will be  paid.  Work is to begin within three  months  after the lieutenant governor gives  his  assent to the bill, and the  whole  line  m 'st be finished within four years.  "An agreement has. also been made  with the Kettle Valley railway company for the construction of a line  fiom Midway to Nicola, where connection will be made with the C.P.R.  The Kettle Valley company has a subsidy from the Dominion government  for the construction of a line between  those points, and the Provincial government has arranged to survive the  old Midway & Vernon subsidy of  $5000   per   mile  for   150   miles, and  AGREEMENT REACHED  IN POINT_ OF WAGES  By  Ex-Dominion   Employees  ^nd New Dominion C6.".~...  The indications for the resumption  of work at the -Rawhide mine in the  course of a couple of weeks are particularly bright at present. ���:'''���'  After two or three meeting? of the  unpaid miners of the former Dominion,  company, and conferences with John  Seward, manager for the New Dominion, the employees who had wages  due them voted on Wednesday night  to accept from the new company an  offer of 75 per cent..in full payment  of their claims.  The proposition before the miners  was that while the new company was  under no obligation in regard to .the  unpaid wages, it would be willing to  pay 75 per cent, in order to reimburse  former employees.and clear away any  possible friction in connection with the  resuming of operations at the Dominion  properties. Local merchants, in order  to issist the men and facilitate in the  resumption of work, agreed to give a'  12/^2 per cent, discount on all accounts  incurred by such miners on tendering  the checks of the New Dominion cbhY-  pany in payment. In other words, the  checks received by ..exrDominion employees wilj be worth ri2j4 per cent,  of face value in making purchases;  Mr. Seward could hot say definitely  when the money will be paid but expected the checks would be ready in  about ten days.  , With the matter of wages cleared up  Mr. Seward anticipates that��� the New  Dominion will commence operations  at the Rawhide mine about the. first  week in November, though resumption  Burglars are operating in Greenwood.  ,*���'���.' ��� ' '  ,..';! j;- H.

For this  sum the province will secure construe  tion of 260 miles of 1 ail way through  the most productive part of the province. This line will pass through  Penticton and Aspen Gro'e, where  there are large copper deposits, will  make a detour to the south to obtain  easy grades until it comes within six  miles of Princeton, where it will swing  north to Nicola. In connection with  the Nicola branch of the C.P.R. this  road will provide a through route for  the Boundary and Kootenays and give  a new railroad to Spokane. Thus it  will be seen the government has been  able to secure  construction of  about  860 miles of railway at an annual cost  of $9000, and  open up a large and  productive part of British Columbia.  With respect todevelopment schemes  in general, Premier McBride promised  immediate construction of. more public  highways, and adjustment of taxation  on a more equitable basis, and to provide for permanency of tenure of crown  lands. In conclusion he stated that  on the points ot better terms and  Asiatic immigration, the government's  policy would not be changed. British  Columbia must remain a white man's  country.  A plebiscite upon the question of  local option will be taken at the same  time as the orovincial elections.  Musical Recital  That Phoenix will shortly have a  wealth of musical talent was greatly  emphasized at the recital given by  pupils of Fridolph Werner in the opera  house Thursday evening. A large  audience of citizens greeted the musicians, and their performance was not  only highly creditable but a pleasing  surprise to those who were not aware  of the musical advancement being  made locally under Mr. Werner. The  artistic rendering of selections on the  piano by the younger pupils was a revelation, while the technique and expression evinced by advanced students  in difficult classic numbers indicated  rare ability as pianists and augurs well  for their elevation in the musical world.  In violin selections Mr. Sallis displayed  no slight talent on the king of instruments. Vocal solos and a duet by Miss  Evans and Mr. McCammon and a solo  by Miss E. Murray, who assisted in the  program, were also much enjoyed, and  selections by the orchestra was a feature of the entertainment.  Curlers (Jelling In Trim  An enthusiastic meeting of the  Phoenix Curling club was held on  Friday evening and matters of general  interest as to the approaching season  were discussed. The financial statement showed the association to be in  the most healthy condition it had  been for some years. While many  former members have removed from  Phoenix it is expected that a large  number of new recruits will be enlisted  this winter. R. J. Gardner, who purposes leaving the city, tendered his  resignation as secretary-treasurer, which  was a matter of general regret to the  members of the club; he was tendered  a hearty vote of thanks for his services  to the club in the past. New officers  were elected as follows: President,  Charles D. Hunter; vice-president, V.  M. Sherbino; secretary treasurer, J. A.  Hartley; executive, G. L. McNichol,  J. J. Strutzel, and G. R. Smith.  Greenwood  hospital  out of a tag social.  realized   $150  beyond development work, is indefinite.  It is probable the Rawhide mine  will be operating a force of 100 men  before the end of November. Accord  ing to the plans mapped out by Mr.  Seward a large amount of surface work  will be required, improvements made  and the extraction of ore systemized  before shipping will commence. ���".--.  The ores from the Dominion mines  were formerly crushed at the company's  smelter; but as there is no-crusher at  the B.C. smelter, to which the Rawhide  will' ship, a crusher will be- installed  at the mine before any shipments are  made. It. is proposed ,to remove the  crusher from.the Boundary. Falls,smel  ter to- the Rawhide as sooff af^pos^ible.  '^AVith the-Rawhide ih^dp'eratlon^trie*  company intend tp put a force to work  oh .the.exploratory and development of  the Brooklyn and Idaho. It is the  opinion of those familiar , with, the  Brooklyn that there is yet a large  amount of excellent ore in the property,  the ledge extending into the ' Montezuma claim owned by   the   Dominion.  , ; Eighty-one"cars of ore, averaging  35 tons each, left Phoenix over the  C.P.R. oh Wednesday. Seventy 50.  ton cars of ore left via the Great Northern on Thursday.  The Greenwood Phoenix Tramway  company is,said to have made p&y-  merits during the past few days'on  bonds Held on properties along the  route'of'their proposed tunnel;  Operations at the Bay ' mine are  proving encouraging at present, the  ledgeiincreasing in width with develops  meat work. Some splendid samples of  gold bearing ore have been taken from  the property.  j J.. A. Bertois, of Cascade, is. adding  a storey to his hotel, providing accommodation for 17 more guests, arid  possibility for eight more rooms to be  finished if need. The growing summer  hotel trade for Christina Lake necessitates increase of accommodation and  Mr. Bertois is building with that business in view.���-Gazette.  OFRECOW  '..-.

The  property is owned, by John Morrell  and samples assayed in Spokane gave  gold values of $281 and $9.80 in  silver. Comparatively little development work has yet been done on the  claim   CONSOLIDATED M. & S.  ANNUAL REPORT  Reflects    Prosperous   Year���  Company's Capital Increased  The Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Canada in its fiscal  year ended June 30 last earned a net  profit of $329,004 after writing off  $rs3,2'r8���-for -depreciation on prlant  and equipment.  The Consolidated company owns  the Trail smelter and mines at Phoenix, Rossland, and Moyie, and is the  largest producer of lead in this country,  its copper up to the present being a  secondary matter. Its lead product  is all used in Canada and the silver is  shipped to the Orient. The copper  product is shipped in the form of  matte to Tacoma and from there  reaches the eastern American refineries  and figures in the monthly statements  of the Copper  Producers' association.  The capital stock of the company  was increased from $5,500,000 to $7,-  500,000 at a meeting of the directors  held recently in Toronto. The annual  report of Managing Director W. H.  Aldridge will be found on the third  page of this issue.  PreBentallon to Mr. and Mrs. Turner  Mr. and Mrs. George D. Turner  left Thursday morning for Vancouver,  where Mr. Turner will represent well-  known interests in the real estate business. On the eve of their departure a  number of old-timers and friends in the  city took them by surprise and presented them with a beautiful cabinet of  table silver-ware, accompanied by  a complimentary address. J. E.  Thompson read the address, which expressed the esteem in which Mr. and  Mrs. Turner have been held during  their long residence in the city, and  the regret of citizens in the departure  of one who had been ' prominently  identified with every move of public  enterprise as well as the social welfare  and general progress of Phoenix.  Mr. and Mrs. Turner will be greatly  missed. As principal of the local  school for three years Mr. Turner won  himself an enviable reputation, and as  accountant for the Hunter-Kendrick  company during the past six years he  has been so actively associated with  ihe business progress of the city thai  his removal i.s a distinct loss to Phoenix; Mrs. Turner has been equally  prominent in social circles, and the  best wishes of their friends accompany  them to Vancouver.  Local Political Pot  The announcement of the provincial elections has set local political  parties in a whirl and the next week  will- probably see each, of the three  parties represented in the. local field.:  iJohh'lSicThnis.of Phoehl?r?whft-w.P  represented this riding in the legislature during -'the past' terrhj- will undoubtedly again be the: candidate of ano: js being operated by  the Socialist party. of   progressive '���ranchers.  For the Conservatives a. number ��*>f -���-  The Granby mines at^Phoenix have  erkered on a,new era of'fracturing past  records in the tonnage of ore shipped  to the comfianyJs smelter; I This weeds' '  output amounted to 27,573 tons, and  not only exceeded that of,the, previous  week by 5,000 tons but is the largest  seven"''days' tonnage on record, and "  this tonnage, would 'probably have  been larger had it not been for lack of  cars on the^ pa/t_ of ,the railway ^companies.      " " "5'"'" '"' '"'���''"';1V' '' ' * ���  On Sunday the shipments were 4700 \J  tons,. 4800 tons on Wednesday and -  on Thursday amounted to over 5000, ....  which-exceeded-by..nearly. a.thousand.....  tons any previous 24 hours' output.  iBut these records cannot be expected  to last for long. With the eight new  smelter furnaces now in shape to consume 4000 tons of ore per day and  the'mines'capable of outputting-"up-~  wards of 5000 tons, if required, in- a  similar period, larger records will follow,..-  shortly. The shipments ,from .the  Granby for the year to date have now  passed the 800,000 markJ '   -  -;  'Incidentally the total shipments' of iV  ore from- Boundary i mines ;this week   i  exceeds by 2000 tons the largest seven   I  days' tonnage of not only during  the  balmy mining days of 1907, but in the  history of the district, :.:,:;'  The total shipments of ore for the >  year to date from the Snowshoe mine,  which has recently been shipping up  to 700 tons daily to Trail smelter, now  amounts to 137,520 tons and has  passed' its record of 135,000 tons in -'���'  the twelve months of 1907.  ��� Mother Lode and Oro Denoro mine  both show increases in ore shipments  to the British Columbia smelter over  those of last week. '������;.  well-known gentlemen have  been suggested during the past year as aspirants  to car.y ;the Government's oanrier in  the Grand Forks riding, but at present  it appears to be a foregone conclusion  that Ernest Millar, of Grand Forks,  the defeated candidate in the last provincial campaign, will again be the  nominee of local Conservatives. G. M.  Fripp of Grand Forks is the most promi  nent of other possible candidates. A  convention for the selection of a standard bearer will be held in Grand Forks  next Thursday.  Who will represent the Liberal party  in the local field is a matter of conjecture, though the honors are said to  have been placed on the shoulders of  J. E Thompson of Phoenix and  George Clark of Grand Forks to decide which will lead the party to victory. Neither of the gentlemen appear to be seeking the honor, though  a creditable run would undoubtedly be  made with either of them in the fight  for the Liberals.  r.j The -West  Fork,  as   far;as; Rock   1  .Creek, jsjriD-*..conucov^^i  dary cities by telephone.

'"' Chronic sores which cause trouble  by "breaking open," may be cured by  Zam-Buk, as well as recent' injuries  aud diseases. If you suffer from some  old*1 sore���-hidden, perhaps, but none  the less'painful for that���don't dally,  but apply Nature's healing essences as  provided in Zam-Buk. Mrs. I. E  Ashton;of in, Vickers street, Fort  AVilliamV tells how valuable Zam-Buk  4s as a family balm. She says:���"We  Just used Zam-Buk for cuts and bruises,  etc, and found it so satisfactory that  my husband1 started using it for a  chronic sore. For a long time he had  been botheredwith anold sore-on his  leg,, and had.used various preparations,  yet nothing had permanently cured it.  He began applyiagZam-Buk balm, and  was very soon agreeably surprised to  notice a great improvement.  "It was only-a matter of a short time  before Zam Buk had thoroughly cleans  ed the sore oi all foul matter and heal  ing commenced. It is now some  months since the sore was completely  closed, and there is no likelihood of it  breaking out again.  "Since then my baby, eighteen  months old, has been cured of eczema  on the scalp by Zam-Buk. This eczema came in red pimples, and if rubbed or scratched, formed into sores.  The child was very fretful from the  irritation of the scalp, but whenever  Zam Buk was applied it seemed to  bring the greatest relief. Frequent  applications were effective in clearing  all traces of the disease from the baby's  scalp in a short space of time. I feel  it my duty to give the credit where  due, and I cheerfully recommend Zam-  Buk to all sufferers irom chronic sores,  bad legt>or eczema."  Zam-Buk is Nature's own healing  balm, being composed of pure herbal  essences. It is a sure cure for eczema,  ringworm^ ulcers, cuts, burns, bruises,  poisoned sores, chronic wounds, bad  leg, piles, festering sores, chapped  hands, cold-sores, frost-bite, and all  skihjnjuiries arid diseases.

Aldridge, managing director of the  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  company, at.the.annual meeting of the  company in Toronto,:,  After writing off $153,218.31 depre  ciation upon plant and equipment, (as  compared with $132,843.20 depreciation marked off during 'the previous  year), $16,650.44 sundry items written  off included bad debts, $24,444.33 on  account of the original cost of placing  rhe Richmond-Eureka upon a producing basis, and charging to profit and  loss account $516,413.96 expended  upon development, and after absorbing  a loss of about $56,000 in metal quotations,   the operations   for   the   year  show a profit  of $329,004,08,  which  added to Jast  year's  balance  of   $32,  061.93, leaves a  net  credit   of  $361,  066 01.  During the year various additions to  the plant have amounted lo$164,951.-  56, the cost of lands near ihe smelter  $22,070.42, and cost  of new /properties and their development to $55,766.-  35, or a total  of  $242,788:33.    This  amount has  been  provided   from  the  company's operating profits. I,��� ..._ 0  The Snowshoe overdraft guaranteed (compared to $5,328,501,   the produc  by the Consolidated company has been J tion for the previous year.  reduced from $29,707,92 to $16,549.-  12.  The advance to the Canadian Metal  company has been repaid in full. The  Canadian Metal company is shipping  its product regularly to Trail, as provided for by a contract extending over  several years.  Since the formation of the Consolidated company $656,400.00 of the  company's treasury stock has been used  in acquiring new properties. There  have been expended $287,420.78 cash  in acquiring new properties, and $1,-  022,311.05 in construction, making a  total of $[,309,731.83 cash spent on  capital account.  PRODUCTION  Following are the productions of the  different properties controlled and operated by the Consolidated Mining &  Smelting company of Canada, Limited,  for the year ending June 30th, 1909,  and the total production to date, as far  as can be ascertained. It will be noted  that the value of metals produced at  the company's smelting works has been  over $36,700,000, and that during the  year the gross value was $5,505,526, as  tht  ft. levels, and between the 1,300 ft.  and 1,500 ft- levels have yielded an  excellent grade of ore.  The Richmond-Eureka, at Sandon,  not only made an excellent record for  the year, but has 50% more tonnage in  sight than a year ago.  A number of 20 to 30 foot ribs of  ore, (separated by lower grade material),  have been found in the War Eagle  claim of the Phoenix Amalgamated.  The War Eagle tramway has been  completed and the railway spur is being  graded. Shipments will be started soon)  and these will determine . whether the  entire body of ore can be mined, or  whether the ribs will be worked separately. .  There is more development tonnage  in the Snowshoe than a year ago.  Shipments are being, made from, this  property at the rate of 18,000 tons per  month.  NEW   PROPERTIES  The Queen Victoria, at Beasely  Siding has been bonded." The ore  which can be quaried contains copper  from T.5% to 2%, and gold and silver  fifty cents per ton The mine will be  started when the carpet market improves.  The Monita and Mugwump properties, joining the War Eagle, Rossland,  and the City of Spokane, joining the  Mugwump, were purchased; also several  claims near the St  Eugene group.    ���  CONSTRUCTION  The new work at Trail consists of a  steel furnace building, 265 feet long by  70 feet wide by 70 fret high ��� a No.  1 \y2 Root blower, capable of delivering  33,000 cubic feet per minute, (driven  by two motors); part of the electric  feed for the copper furnaces; part of  the cost of a mechanical feed on the  lead furnaces ; one additional Hunting-  \     RAMBLING  ^VERJES;    j  j BY'A  DRBAMKIl j  l��>������tttM��*0��W<H������<��>**>*****'>>m<,*<M**-***t   ���  Revenge is the only debt which it  is wrong to pay:  It is nice to be handsome but it, is  a good deal handsomer to be nice.

The two full  teams were engaged in a free-for-all  fight shortly before time was called,  two of them getting knocked out The  spectators joined and the police were  at first powerless to stop the fracas.  The champions played brilliantly in  the last two quarters of the game and  had the Vancouvers at their mercy.  ���!

MEANS MUCH TO  "NORTH VANCOUVER  Big  Real Estate Deal Which  Promises Car Ferry and  Wharf  The city of North Vancouver has  turned a new page in its history in a  real estate tranaction just completed���  the sale of one hundred feet of water-  frontage, next to the wharf, says the  Province.':. ,'���'.,:'  Three features stand out in the deal.  It means that the city will have railway  cars before the railway, and that the  two cities will be connected by a railway car ferry. It also means a shipping wharf one hundred feet long,  which, with the proposed new city  wharf adjoining, will "provide a magnificent wharf for the ciiy's front door  at least two.hundred feet wide..;.; The  third feature is the price, $56,000 cash  for 1 bo feet, thus reaching the high-  water mark of $500 per footfront.  The!vendor is the British Columbia  Trust company, as assignee of the  Western Corporation, and the purchaser is Capt. J. D. Foreman, we:l  known, in''shipping'' circles -The deal  was puts through by Mr. Geo. C.  Walker of',Walker,. McMillan & Co.,  North, Vancouver.  It is rumored that one of the transcontinental railways is behind th��_ captain and that still more interesting announcements in the development of the  city on the north shore of ,Burrard  Inlet as a shipping centre, parlicularj^y  in timber and ore from the timlx'r  lands and mineral claims in the Lynii  and Seymour valleys, may be expected  at an early date.  The Britjsh Columbia Eltctric rail  way company is extending its tracks to  the site of the proposed new wharf of  the east, next to the present city wharf.  The property has a depth of 100 feet  the .same, as the frontage, and the  tracks will be laid on the wharf when  it is completed.  ; The British Columbia Electric Railway company is also extending its line  up the Lynn valley. In addition to  the ore it is expected will be brought  down for shipment North Vanconver  now has five mills, three sawmills and  two shingle mills, all having long been  in need'of adequate shipping fucilities.  It is Capt. Foreman's intention to  engage in a general shipping and  wharfage business. He has taken over  the transport Canada, formerly owned  by MacKenzie Bros., which will be  the first of the railway car feiries connecting the'two cities.
