The Greenwood Court House will
be one of the Finest Buildings in the Boundary.
Tlio erection of the Greenwood court house, which will be
the most pretentious building
of its kind in the Boundary
district, is now in active progress after a, suspension through
the winter months during
which the frost was too sharp
for outdoor building operations
to be conducted with due regard to lasting results. The
site of the court house is at the
comer of Government and
Deadwood streets, immediately
opposite the well-known Hotel
Armstrong and in convenient
proximity tn the business centre
of the town.
The outside dimensions of the
main building are -14 ft. by (12 ft.
6 in and 52 ft. high to the ridge
capping. The basement walls
built last November, are in
granite masonry, rising two
feet above ground level. From
ground floor to eaves the building will be framed in local lumber covered with coast cedar
lap siding and shingles, tlie
gables to be finished in half cast
plaster. The roof will also be
Shingled. Tlie building will
face west and fronton Government street, from wliieh the
public entrance will beapproch-
ed. The main entraiiie.doois
wVT) lie sheltered by a portico, (I
ft. 6 in. liy 18 ft. 4 in., supported
by substantial built columns,
those at the other corners to be
triple. 'Ihereare also private
entrances, on south side of building, to sheriffs and judge's
rooms respectively. Tlie public
entrance hall will be 22 ft. wide
nnd 11 ft. deep. Beyond tlie
hall will be a corridor 7 ft. 0 iu.
wide by 10 ft. long. On tbe
north side of the entrance hall
will be tlie private room of the
Government Agent and Gold
Commissioner, dimensions 11
ft.by Ki ft., and having entrances from botli the hall and the
public office.. This latter situate north of tlie corridor, will be
26 ft. by '.i'l ft., with strong room
8 ft. 6 in. by 9 ft. in south east
corner of the new office. On
opposite, or south side of entrance hall and corridor will be
the Supreme and County Court
Registrar's private room and
public office, the latter 20 ft. by
26 ft. and having at its rear the
sheriff's room, 11 ft. by 16 ft.
Between tlie sheriff's office and
courtroom. The celling of tha
court room will tie in native cedar with a hammer beam roof,
trusses of Douglas fir, and junction of walls and ceiling enriched wit!) a 16-inch moulded cornice, Th" woodwork will all lie
oil-finished. Tlie interior woodwork throughout the building
generally will be executed in
clo'U'-gi'aineil coast cedar, finished iu its natural color.
The judge's bench will 'be on
au elevated platform, with the
jury box t,i the righi. Tlio
main fittings and furnishings
of tlie court room, including
judge's and registrar's benches,
jury box, witness stand, barristers' table, dock, etc., are included in the contract, and thaje
are designed ta harmonise
witli tlie general character of
the building, lhe lighting ef
the court room wall ba made a
special feature. At the north
and most of the wallspjue is appropriated to glass a:'j.i, th i
uppjr part of g.ible being furnished with a 14—ft. base, semicircular mullionod window,
glazed? in artglasi in loa.hJ
carries.' • special provision is
made for heating and ventilating the court room for both
summer and winter sittings of
the court.
At the south end of the court
room and looking towards Gov-
emmaab'stcaot are tin barristers' library room, 11 ft. liy 21
ft., which for tlu prosmt will
bo iHj;l ai -a robing room, and

balustrade. The lavatories ou
this floor are en suite with tin;
rooms. The building will bo
heated by steam aud lighted
throughout by electric light.
Tlie plans of the architect, Mr.
G&fl., 1). Curtis, provide for a
building of striking and handsome appearance, conveniently
arranged and well planned all
through. Messrs. Smith Brothers contract calls for an expenditure of about §10,000,
which is the amount voted by
the Provincial Legislature last
session, but it, i.s probable this
appropriation will have to be
exceeded.

There is no encouraging news
of a settlement of the strike.
The committee is still working,
but is not hopeful. It is likely
that a public meeting will be
called to-day, at wliieh the
miners from Morrissey, Michel
and Fernie will be present. A
last appeal will then be made.
As far as can bc ascertained the
committee got to the point
where matters dealing witli the
situation at M irrissey and
Michel were arranged, but the
company want a reduction in
the wage scale at the Fernie
mine.
The C. P. R. Strike.
There is little change in the
strike situation. The conipany
officials say that work is proceeding virtually unhampered,
and that Canadian I'acilic
steamers have obtained nonunion crews which will be retained permanently. The strikers claim that the company's
warehouses are in an inextricable tangle and that the situation is daily becoming more ag-
grivated.
In Vancouver the union
teamsters have incorporated as
a joint stock company and cater
for general drayage.
Redistribution of tin Province.
Ottawa, March 19.—Tha
British Columbia inombers met
to-day and discussed the redistribution of the province iuto
electoral! divisions. Yale and
Cariboo district will be divided.
with one member for oaoh ne,v
district. Vancouver island is
too large for two and too small
for three. Victoria will therefore get only one member. Nanaimo district will be reduced
in si/.e aud get one member, and
the remainder of the island and
a part of the mainland will get
the third.
Dominion Estimates.
Ottawa, March 17.—The estimates for the year ending
with June 1004 were presented
to Parliament yesterday. The
total expenditure is fifty seven
million odd, an increase of nearly four million on the expenditure of lhe currentyear. There
is a decrease of over four million iu public works and a similar increase in railway expenditure. Among the estimates is

says:   "Tii > no-.-ess.ty heretofo o

connection with the most trivial
matters was largely responsible
tun tiie paralysis of the public
and   private   initiatives.   Fear
is expressed by the liberals aud
progressives that the reactionaries mny succeed in hamper
ing the ■•.. ar's desire for reforms.'
ll, would lie, perhaps, presumptuous, to say that the time has
arrived   in   British   Columbia
the people should have charge
of their local affairs, yet  these
proposed   Russian   reforms afford us hope that . sametime ii.
the future we or our successors
may    enjoy    self-government.
Tneie was a time in this pari
of British   Columbia  when,   il
the peoplo wanted to bridge a
stream or build a   temporary
road to enable them fo  get in
supplies to prospect a new mining camp, after some delay, tbe
local government afficial would
engage a pratical man to build
the works when and where they
wore needed, provided always
the  aforesaid government   of
fioial had no private property
the value of which he desired
to enhance with funds   drawn
from the provincial   treasury
In that event, we usually  ob
tained the necessary public (V
works, when, if not where, the)
were needed.   Under tho Sem
lin adiii'iiistration, which, unfortunately for British Columbia, took charge of affairs, reac
tionary methods were introduced into the Public Works department.   Under that system,
if it be necessary to   bridge a
mountain   stream, an   official,
providing he   can   take   time,
coines up   from Victoria   and

Hon. Mr. Wells commenting
upon the election of Mr. Semlin in West Yale says it was one
of those freaks Of public opinion. If Mr. Wells makes a
study of freaks resulting from
public opinion, he does not have

AMERICA'S
Thod 'spera.te clinging of pub
lie men fo office is one of the
worst features of pullic
Canada. Tlio position
minister of the
honorable in
life in
of a
Crown is an
ne when it is held by
honorable means and used for
the bene "it of the people. Hcfd
on any other terms, it is a d --
grading servitude. There is no
diugrace or humiliation in hei ig
in opposition'. fomeof the be t
public work in Great Britain
and in Canada has been done in
opposition. George Brown, the
founder of the Liberal party in
Canada, was scarcely ever in
office, and cared little for office.
Again and again he declared
that the object of public men
should be not to hold office, bi t
to educate public opinion, to secure tho triumph of their convictions, and to have their
measures carried. In Grout
Britain the tone of public life
has been raised by men who
were not eager for oflice, and
who were willing to give up office the moment it ceased to bo
useful and honorable. Joh i
Bi igiit was a conspicuous example of tb-. tribune of the
people who ihou^h more of t e
people and of his convictions
than of the emoluments aid
Hrisel of office.—Toronto World.

Reform is in the nir even in
iiussiii. The czar has !:sueda
decree providing for religious
toleration, and other refu.ms
including a measure of se f-
goyernnient or control of strict-
i,. local aiiaiis by the people,
.v dispatch from I: t. JPeitersbury
says: "Tii', nei-ess.ty heretofore
oi. upplyaig to St. Petersburg in
connection with the most trivial
matters was largely responsible
ina the paralysis of the public
and private initiatives. Fear
ijj expressed by the liberals and
progressives that the reactionaries liiuy suiiecd in hamper
ing the c, tic's desire for reforms.'
It would be,perhaps, presumptuous, to say that the time has
arrived in British Columbia
the people should have charge
of their local affairs, yet tliesu
proposed Russian reforms afford us hope that „ sametime in
the future we or our successors
may enjoy self-government.
Tnere was a time in this part
of British Columbia when, ii
the peoplo wanted to bridge a
stream or build a temporary
road to enable them to get in
supplies to prospect a new mining cainp, after some delay, the
local governnient nfficinl would
engage a pratical man to build
the works when and where they
were needed, provided always
the aforesaid government of
ficial had no private property
tho value of which he desired
to enhance with funds drawn
from the provincial treasury
In that event, we usually ob
tained the necessary public (V
works, when, if not where, thej
were needed. Under the Sem
lin ailnrnistration, wbich, unfortunately for Ilritish Columbia, took charge of affairs, reac
tionary methods were introduced into the Public Works department. Under that system,
if it- be necessary to bridge a
mountain stream, an official,
providing he can take time,
colnes up from Victoria and
consults some local autocrat
about the n after, and if he has
not time tb come, he puts it riff
        J Amerlct. There-noiliing else like It

A WALKING TRIP.
Bltln GIich Some  Mints oil Comlnotlng
(Jills' Wnlklnii I'Hi'tli'K.
Thn (lcliRhtlul poEsibililios of a
•vnlkiiiL; trip can scuivul.v no tivoics-
limuted, -i i.s moro cnjoynl.lo than
n Inu or three liotr..' walk, necanso
it furnishes that spice of adventure
deiimnded by every trite walker.
Moreover, il. affords unlimited iitfior-
tuni ies foi broadening ono's view
and becoming heller acquainted with
one Sit'ountry and ils people,
ln Lbe lirst place, soiiie idea should
be formed as to the Ijnglh of tho
trip. I think that for a first trip
tw niy u.il. s is fur anough. An or*,
dimity g'ii'J tun probably cover this
riistiitico in two or three days. From
this first trip an estimate of ones
walking abilities may be gained,
from wliieh the length of other ti ips
may be compiled.
'I ho il s illation is the next thing to
be considered, lt is best to appoint
this a town or \ lingo, from which a
train may be taken homo, as tke
walkers will probably le too fatigued
at lho end of their journey to wish
to n train their stops. Then, a map
of Ihe country Ihrough whicli thoy
will walk, showing roods, may bo
secured. On it the roads to be f.il-
lov o I by them should be c'erirly
m r o I, and afterwards followed
without deviation.
Then enir.os tie Important tpmstlon
(>f fix;ro s1. If the finances of the
party are wi ely managed, these
s or f.l not bo \o.\v high. To this
end, n treasurer may be sole ted, who
shall nine complete control of the
common piiiue. Some discrimination should be i sod in lor selection,
nnd thc girl who knows something
about tin' expenditure of money to
the best purpose should be chosen.
/\s for the Items of expense, the
most iin" riant one is that of lodging for t" ' ni rht, wl i-h shoulil be
procured before starling. As for provisions, If tho waller, dp not object to encumbering themselves witn
them, this item need not be considered. Railroad fare, how ever, must
lio provi o.l. Las ly, each member
if the prr.y eoiujrally pays to lho
treasurer a settled amount to meet
sue iniergeiiijies us may arise by
the way.
Then*wo mny proceed to tbe choosing of muni P'jj of tie parly. On
Ihis iiiutl r I in Hove the sircccss of
the trip rests. Kor It does not require much Insight to sen that the
rie irate gl'l, the girl who cannot
wai'. fur, and the girl who nt icrlnin
times refuses to make herself agreeable, cannot make dcsirnl le companions. However, after passing over these, it will yet ire ojisy to lind
nine or ten girls who will he glad to
bear their share of the expense for
the pleasure of the trip.,
Then we may turn to the question
of dress. Wilh a pair of stout
shoes, a walking skirt, a dark wain1
and a dm'able Imt, most girls cun
ma'e Ihrm-'elvrs lom'orlable. tt'nt-
ijrpronfs .011(1 tii,';'o!l.;:', hnv.rv.r, ue
ro iiy ne easily, ana snouia no
brought along.
Now. aftiT nil arrangements are
roinirlotej] and the trip begun, no
one bul the walker can know lhe delight with which she greets the yi'l-
low-lirnWn road winding off through
ilv vi Hoys, over country bridges, and
1 ising ilself around some hill, whence
it wanders off into a country as unknown to her us any English shire.
So she cultivates a love of trnvol,
wl ic r may some day lead her to tho
Antipodes.
I will give nne hint us to the timo
for such a trip. I helieve that nii-
tr.mti is the iileul senson for walking
long d stances. Tho roads are better Ihen than in ipring and winter,
and the sun less hot than in summer. Besides this consideration,
there is the fact thnt at no other
lime is the country so beautiful; for,
with the flaming ■autumn woods
stretching far beyond one on all
sides, tho goldenrod and asters clustering around the fences, and the
blue-grey ha/e over nil, what other
landscape could afford such a feast of
color?
further, if any of the party possess a camera, or a tnlent Ior sketching, it should by all means lie
brought along,nnd tbe landscapes and
groups taken by the way w'tl keep
the memory of the trip green for
years.—Dixi, in Toronto Olobo.
A Tnle of a ftmllfl.
Tuesday night, as she smiled, It
was a contagious affair, and thc audience returned it. writes Charles
llayinond in The Toronto Star.
T'hoso who have heard her liefore
thought she had never done better,
and from all part; of the building
came the applause demanding nn encore. Ho shejfimilos and sings again,
nnd wo are sure she is happy, for
who could he so blithe with her own
hcnrl trot free from cure? Free from
rare! That woman's husband loves
her, nnd they suy she loves him, Rut
they cannot agree, some wny or olher, so she !s supporting herself and
a boy just by that smile nnd her
voi'c. In her room iu n loiter which
tolls her that her husband is about
lo institute prnce dings for the pos-
SjJJJ'ion of tho cbihi.
Tbe smrow hid in the smile before
lho audience, but in the rpiite of thit
room she roads and re-rends the lei-
lor, nnd cries as she rends It.

The school where thorough work is done; where the reason
is always given; where confidence is developed ; where Book-
Kf.Ki'iNo is taught exactly as books are being kept in business;
where Shorthand is scientific ; where penmanship is at its
best; where merit is the standard ; where the training in Civil, Servick, Tklkgrai'hy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them howto be
successful. No argument is so eloquent as the record of
things well done. No mortgage can corrupt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of Howto Do. When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done for
others is it better to trust to luck? Is it wiser to guess?
