OM MONDftY, MAY 25TH
A good Programme of Sports
Has Been Provided and
A successful Day's
Celebration ts
Assured.
Preparations) for the forthcoming Victoria Day celebration are proceeding very satisfactorily. The different committees having in hand the arrangements for the various
features of the day's attractions
have been kept busy during the
past two weeks, and now have
the satisfaction of seeing the results of their work in 11 programme, which provides entertainment throughout the whole
day of tlie celebration.
The programme, which has
ju$t been issued is a large and
varied one, the events including
horseraces, bicycle races, base
ball matches and athletic sports.
The Greenwood Citizens' band
has been engaged to furnish
music throughout the day. As
the 24th falls on Sunday, Monday, the 25th will be the day
upon which the celebration will
be held.
The committee" appointed to
make the necessary collections
for defraying the expenses of
the celebration is meeting with
a generous response und no expense will he spared in carrying
out the programme and thus
providing visitors an enjoyable
holiday.
The 24th of May has long
been cognized in the Boundary district, us Midway's day.
Ever since Midway was a town
it has celebrated the 24th of
May, with great success. Even
last year when a neighboring
town attempted to purloin the
day by holding a rival celebration, the attractions at Midway
were so superior that Midway's
celebration was in every way a
success, which certainly could
not be said of the rival celebration, consequently the residents
of that town this year decided
to in no way interfere with
Midway's customery celebration hut to lend support and
share in the day's pleasure
Thisyear tliere is no other town
in the Boundary celebrating the
24th and as arrangements have
been made with the C. P. R. to
run special excursion trains
from Grand Porks, Phoenix,
Eholt and Greenwood, there
will undoubtedly be a large
crowd here that day.
Expos!
tricts it is evident that in others
much indifference prevails,
which, in view of the circumstance that the Doniinion government is prepared to pay all
railway freight charges to Ottawa and thence to St. Louis, is
disappointing. Regarding the
collection of mineral specimens
it does not yet appear to be generally understood that Mr.
Stuart made, a business arrang-
ment with the Provincial Mining association at Victoria, to
the effect that in every district
where there is a branch of the
association the local branch
shall collect and deliver "to the
nearest railway station, boxed
and ready for transportation,
whatever mineral specimens it
is intended shall be sent for exhibition purposes. Individual
specimens up to four pounds
may be sent free by mail addressed to the Exhibition
Branch, Ottawa. All exhibits
(excepting placer gold and specimens of special value, which
will be returned if desired), will
become the absolute property
of the Dominion government.
Although the St. Louise xpos-
ition will not take place until
next year, the work now in
hand is of particular importance, and it cannot bo too
strongly impressed on those
concerned that if they wish
their respective districts to bo
well represented they must set
ubout getting together theii;
collection without delay. Exhibits will be accepted at Ottawa up till October 31st next,
but it is desirable that they be
sent in as much before that date
as possible, so as to facilitate
the making of arrangements
for space, preparation of catalogues, etc. The Dominion will
lie divided into provinces and
these again into districts, aud
the showing each district will
make lies, with itself, for if no
local interest be taken after the
government tyis shown ite readiness to bear all cost from thu
time exhibits shall be delivered
at tho railway it cannot be expected that any further assistance will be forthcoming.
Minerals For St. Louis
tion.
A.K. Sftiart, of the exhibition branch of the department
of agriculture, Ottawa, is about
to close his visit to the Bouudary district. He will likely go
hence to liossland, Nelson and
the Slocan, spending a short
time at each of those places before proceeding to the Northwest Territories and Manitoba.
During his stay in the Boundary, extending over several
weeks, Mr. Stuart hus been in
correspondence with all the set
tied part* of the province regarding the collection of exhibits. While this matter has
been taken up with commendable  enthusiasm in some dis-
A Telephone Transaction.
Lost week D. C. Corbin and
A. M. Thomas came from Spokane to Greenwood und there
met John Dean, Geo. A. Keating and A. H. MacNeil, of Rossland, and Duncan Ross, of
Greenwootl, these several Gentlemen being officially connected with either the Yale-Kootcn-
ay T. & T. Co., or the Great
Northern.
The meeting held after the
arrival of the Spokane contingent was for the purpose of formally ratifying the sale to the
Great Northern of the telegraph
system in tho Boundary district
put in under a provincial charter obtained in 180!) by the Yale-
Kootenay T. & T. Co., which
built a line in British Columbia
from the Boundary line at Cascade to Carson and from Midway to Greenwood, the connecting lines giving through communication to Spokane and other points being in Washington.
The Yale-Kootenay Co.'s telegraph business in this district
was generally regarded as the
Spokane Northern system, but
when at the flrst of the year it
passed into the hands of the
Groat Northern it was announced to bo the Yale-Kootenay system, under which name it has
since been worked. Probably
it will in time become known as
the Great Northern, but after
all the name does not matter
much.

AN HYPOTHESIS.
Suppose that Premier Prior
had carried out his policy, of
liberally bonusing railroads
with money and large portions
of the public domain, and suppose that the Canada Northern
and the Grand Trunk Pacific
railroads were built across the
continent, and that King Ed
ward had conferred knighthood
upon the presidents of the roads
and suppose that W. C. Wells
were Chief Commissioner of
Lands and Works and spent
all the time he had left, after
contemplating his position as
one of King Edward's ministers
in cultivating the friendship of
the three Sir Thomases, or railroad knights, where in this
case do you suppose the people
of British Columbia would get
off at?
MUST HAVE A CHANGE.
Though tlie half has not been
told in regard to the negotiations of our so called representatives with the C. P. R„ and
never will be, one result of the
revelations will be that thepeo
pie will demand a complete revolution in the government of
this province.   At the earliest
opportunity, the flectorate will
see that men imbu d with  a
proper sense of ttieir responsi
bility to the people and vi 'i
the principles of common l.on-
«styand decency  in the conduct of public affairs, are ele-t-
ed to represent them.   We have
had enough of men who pose us
ministers    of the crown and
friends of the president of the
C. P. R., but who forget or are
ignorant of the fact, that in this
country a minister of the crown
should be nothing more or less
than a representative or trustee
of the people.   The members of
the present government, with
the exception of the premier,
were elected on the cry that the
country must be  saved  from
Joe Martinism.   Joseph Martin
lias his faults, but he is in favor
of reform, and sees clearly that
the system of government in
tliis country is about fifty years
behind the times.   The principles of rosponsibile government
for whicli the older  provinces
struggled for years, are entirely
beyond the grasp of many of
British Columbia's legislators.
They were not brought up to
them, and do not understand
them, and some of them  will
tell you that British Columbia
should have remained a crown
colony.   They do not believe in
popular or responsible government and sigh for the good old
day,<    when     "appointments"
were made from the Old country,   There is work to be done
ii this province similar to that
done in the older provinces in
tho days when   the   "Family
• compact"     controlled     them.
Those blue-blooded  gentlemen
divided a good part of the crown
hinds among    their    friends
—There were no great corporations    in , those     days—and
ruled with a high hand, until
such men as George Brown and
Joseph Howe and many other
reformers, after many years of
bitter     contests,    successfully
stormed the barriers  of   ami-

ARNOLD MEDICINE CO., Dcpt. 118
go Adelaide St. Eut, Toronto.On
tion. On opening the door he
found a man standing there evidently suffering extremely.
The unfortunate fellow was
quite nude, ahd it was plain that
fire had injured half his body,
whilst blood was dripping from
his burned left hand. He was
taken to a near-by hotel and
simple remedies were applied
until Dr. Gordon arrived from
Greenwood. The grave nature
of the case was immediately
recognized by the doctor, who,
after relieving the unfortunate
man's ^sufferings as much as
possible, had him removed to
the Greenwood hospital, where
he is doing as well as can be expected under tlie circumstances.
There seems to be little doubt
that Webb was the victim of
want of carefulness. He was
seen going to the house with
some groceries after his return
from a 17-mile walk to Long
Lake and back, where be had
been to see a brother employed
doing assessment work near the
Jewel mine. He was quite
sober, as is his wont to be, and
it is supposed that after getting
supper he lay down, having an
unprotected candle alongside
his bed. Being tired after his
long walk he no doubt fell
asleep and slept heavily, and was
not awakened until much burned. Asa partly burned shirt
was found smoldering some
yards from the burning house
it would appear that in his
frenzy Webb tore off the burning shirt and ran over the rough
ground to the office above
mentioned. The house aud
contents, which were uninsured
and belonged to Thomas Webb,
were entirely destroyed. The
the latter was sent for next day
and was shortly on hand to supply his brother's needs. Another brother Samual Webb is
resident at 216 Keefer street,
Vancouver.
It is stated that smallpox is
spreading at Chesaw, across the
international boundary line
south of Rock Creek, and now
a case is reported from the British Columbia side of the line,
towards the Anarchist Mountain
farming section. The medical
offticer some time since placed
guards at Midway Myers
Creek, but there is such a long
stretch of unprotected boundary line that it is not practicable
to entirely prevent communication between the infected district and points on the British
Columbia side of the line, For
instance, a man Was in Green-
Wood from Chesaw last week,
and to get there, he had first
gone to Republic, so it is alleged, crossed the line thence to
Grand Forks and so around to
Greenwood. The case at Anarchist Mountain is supposed to
have been occasioned by a visitor from Chesaw to the farm
in question for prior to that
visit there wus no knowu case
on this side of the lfae in that
district.

SATURDAY, MAY 16, MM.
The Rambler Bonded.
Frank Watson, of Spokane
has taken a working bond on
the Rambler mineral claim, situate near Beaverdell, and owned by W. A. Rambo, of Beaverdell. J. W. Nelson, of Greenwood
and F. J. Finucane, of Spokane.
It is stated that the conditions
of the deal require that work
shall be commenced by July 1st
next with three shifts of men.
It is understood that a tunnel
will be run on the lead for
about 250 feet, which distance
should bring the heading under
the 76 foot shaft at a depth below the surface of about 110 ft.
New Smelter Manager.
E. J. Wilson has been appointed manager of the Northport
smeltt*'.', to succeed Manager
Watson, and has taken charge
of the work. It is expected
that Mr. Watson, who has been
temporarily in charge until a
successor could be secured for
Oscar Sssontagh, until recently
manager, will be retained on
the smelter staff. He is an experienced and capable man in
most respects, save that he has
not had a rounded metallurgical
experience, and his appointment was temporary.
Mr. Wilson, the now manager, was formerly with the
Great Fulls smelter, the Philadelphia plant at Pneblo, and
was eastern representative for
the Northern smelter under the
Breen regime. He was also
manager of the Boundary Falls
smelter, but gave up that position on tlie sale of the property
to the Montreal & Boston Copper company, and since then has
been looking after the interests
of Price Brothers in the Boundary. He is classed as a capable
and experienced mining man.
Steam Shovel for Knob Hill.
The Granby conipnny has recently made a decided innovation in the methods of mining
in British Columbia by the introduction of a steam shovel in
connection with the, hauling of
ore at the Knob Hill mine.
This powerfull machine, which
arrived last week, was at once
placed in commission on the hill,
and is said to be working to
the satisfaction of William Yol-
en Williams, the superintendent
of the Granby mines. It is
mounted on traction wheels,
and has a dipper capacity of
three-quarters of a cubic yard
of ore, or one and a half tons.
In a day of ten hours it will
handle from 1000 to 1500 tons of
ore, or from 500 to 750 yards.
It is fitted with a vertical boiler,
45 inches in diameter by sjBven
feet in height, and now is being
operated at No. 1 level of the
Knob Hill mine. One advantage
of the steam shovel is that it
can be readily moved by its own
power io any part of the surface workings of the Granby
mines, lt was manufactured
at Lorraine, Ohio.

Tlie varying emotions that
prevodks a newspaper man's
breast may be fairly judged
from a recent issue of one of
our contemporaries. In that
one issue he is glad, is pained,
is delighted, has regret, heartfelt sorrow. With such conflicting and varying emotions it is
no wonder that editors are either gray or bald headed at forty.
The Wonder is that they are
alive.

Don't borrow trouble. An
editor in Wisconsin recently begun worrying about how he
would get his shirt on over his
wings on reaching Paradise.
An envious contemporary sarcastically observed thiit his
real difficulty would likely be
in finding how to get his hat on
over h i.s horns.
