MAKING HEADWAY.
The   Columbia Telephone  Co.
Aoquires the System of the
Boundary Creek  Telephone Company.
The Past Vear's Oood Showing-A
Prospect Of Still More Ener.
gy and Enterprise.
The Ooiumbia Telephone and Telegraph Conipnny, about whose ability
to construct and maintain an efficient
telephone system doubts were last year
circulated by rivals, Is steadily extend*
ing iis operations nlid becoming in nn
increasing degree a formidable competitor for the telephone business of
the Boundary country. In the middle
of May, 1809, this conipany hnd noteven
commenced the work of laying its lines,
for It was not until the 10th of that
month that IU fir-t pole was set up,
l.ut having once commenced construction tbe work was continuously proceeded wilh until wires had been
stretched from the Boundary line near
Cascade ihrough Grand Forks, thence
via Niagara and Eholt to Greenwood
and on to Boundary Falls, Midway,
Rock Creek and Camp McKinney. Al
the outset the conipany determined to
put in a thoroughly good system, with
the result that those having business
to transact over the telephone wires
were quick to appreciate the excellence
of the service provided and they
patron laud iinccoidingly. TbeOolum*
bin Conipany lias acted rather than
talked of his intentions. This fact
was especially noticeable so far as
Midway was concerned, for while on
the one hand the representative of another company wan dickering for a
bonus and making statements of what
he proposed to do, the Columbia Com-
pany quietly strung its wires to Midway and thence to Camp McKinney,
whilst, the other is still only talking,
Later It secured connections with
Hossland and Spokane, and so gave to
Midway enlarged facilities for tho
transaction of business.
Some time ago Thk AdVaNtjI! announced thai tne Columbia Oompany
had acquired the system and business
nf the Spok.iue and British Columbia
Telephone Co, Last week it took over
ihe lines and business of the Boundary
Creek Telephone and Telegraph Company, which had local ox-changes nt
Midway, Greenwood and Phoenix, As
the Columbia Company already bad
local exchanges at Rossland, Grand
Forks, Colunihia, Greenwood and Republic, Wash., it now has ihem in
sev*;n towns, and, ton, has direct connection with Spokane, Bo«shui'g and
Bolt-tor, across the Boundary line, and
as well with the principal mines in the
Rossland and Boundary districts. It
is now operating about -I2ii miles of
line, a total which makes n very creditable showing as the result of the past
year's work. It will further extend iis
system ns occasion calls for it, the ill*
tention of the man\gemant being to
keep pjice with lhe development of the
country ns husiness sluill warrant it.
The company purposes eventually
enlarging its operations until these
cover lhe whole of the Piovince, and
with Ihis end in view it worked with
tlie Western Telephone Company in
endeavoring to obtain from the Provincial Legislature hist session the
requisite powers, hut the wrecking
tactics of Mr. Joseph Martin defeated
its efforts and so caused delay. It will
however renew its endeavors to secure
a cbartcr that will give it lights and
privileges sufficiently comprehensive
to admit of it carrying out Its plans in
this direction, and since it has so unmistakably proved Its bona (Ides in the
Boundary districl there is no dnub
the powers sought will be readily
graiiied hy the next local Parliament.
No Immediate change la projected In
local utrangemeiils, tbe present ihtell*
tion being that Miss Moxley shall
continue In charge of the Midway
exchange. It is probable though that
the system now taken over will he
better equipped and improved generally to bring up lo Ihe higher standard
of the Coliiniliia Company's other lines,
It is not, intended to raise the monthly
charge for a telephone! but lo leaye it
at the liberal rate that has ruled since
Ihe Boundary Creek Company's system wns installed,
Mr. Wi B. Davoy is President of the
Colunihia Telephone and Telegraph
Company, and Mr. J. B, Donald Vice.
President, The company's head office
is in Grand Forks. lis enterprise and
energy, whilst increasing its importance and value to its stockholders,
have contributed materially to the
progress of thn Boundary country, so
Its further prosperity will he very generally welcomed throughout the districts to which it has given additional
I facilities for the transaction of business. c. :vi. oitoi

Martinism is dead, and so unmistakably dead that its most, ardent admirers and musl zealous supporters
are not likely lo alletnpl. io resiiscilnle
it in the vain hope that ils death is
rather apparent lhan real, Whilst
in this Rnssiand Killing i misguided
majority, that could not sec beyond
its own nose, did ils little best lo keep
it alive then' was happily a general
determination I hrnaghoul the Province
to bring about ils "happy dispatch.''
Soil is dead anil lew will there be tn
niourn its decease. On the contrary
the fact that. il has received itsdealli-
blow will restore confidence. Wilh
its unsettling and deterring inlliu-iiccs
removed there is reason to hope for n
return of confidence among capitalists
that henceforward Ihe Province will
be well and wisely governed, so .thai
Investment of capital may be safely
and freely mude in our mining and
other Industries, The outlook for th
Boundary district, which so much
needs capital for its iideqiiatc develop
went, i.s consequently now far more
encouraging lhan it was under recent
blighting conditions. It is the misfortune cat her than the fault of many
public spirited men in the riding that
their efforts lo fnrllier tho general
good were frustrated, still it is far
better lo have Individually been losers
in a light for good government lhan
to have in any way supported a man

The managing editor of the Greenwood "Miner," in its issue of the 8th
inst., wroto: "Mr. Mackintosh is a
falsifier if he dines say that he was
Offered tho 'Miner' for political purposes, for any amount wluitevfir; and is a
despicable coward to make such a
charge right on the eve of the election
when lie imagines I have no time to
answer it." In view of lhe following
fuels und reasonable inferences the
public will he able to judge for themselves whether it i-i not rather the
"Aimer's" managing editor who is the
''falsifier" and "despicable coward" for
publishing the foregoing statement
When he absolutely knew, uot nieiely
iuiagined, thai Mr, Mackintosh could
not possibly reply to It hefore th-
election. Mr. Kcilh admits that when
he assumed charge of tho paper hi*
predecessor ''claimed he had a deal
on lor the papm with ('. II, Macklll
tosh of liossland," aid thai on April
4th he (Mr. Keith) "wrote to Mr.
Mackintosh offering him the 'Miner'
for tfilXK) cash," Is it not reasonable
U> ..ifer tliJit Mr. Keith, before offering
to sell the. paper to Mr. Mackintosh,
ascertained from Mr, Gosnell, nsany
ordinary business man would have
done, what his reasons wero for regarding Mr. Mackintoj'i as a probable
buyer? Further, .Mr. Keith udinils
luiv'uig ulTi'Ved the paper for sale on
Api il Ith, Which was nt least five days
after a, Hossjand gentleman arrived in
Green .vooil seeking support to Mr.
Mackintosh's proposed nomination,
and hearing in mind Mr. Kei'.h's
peciiniiry inteiest in the paper limit
people will cjiuchule that, not withstanding hi.-' seeming prevarication, he
too had lieen made aware of it, hence
his olfer to sr'l the paper to Jir. Mackintosh. Prior to Mr. Gosuell's connec
tion with the Greenwood "Miner" that
paper was notorious in ihe Boundary
Creek dislrict for its readiness to in
discriniiuati'ly publish favorable write-
ups of mineral claims arid mines iii
return for tuck or othercpnsldergtiniii
Mr. Lee, (hu Iben edit >r of the jujie*.
j openly statcll that Mr. Keith was then
i iianciaily interesl ed in tho paper, and
even irioraVopenly solicited stock or
nther ci nsideriitlon for flattering notices i'i ,,s columns, Mr. Keith may
claim that he Individually derived no
benefit Irom this nefarious practice,
yet lhe fool remains that it was a
matter of public comment that Mr,
Lie followed this course, and. thai,
loo, he claimed Mr. Keith ns a partner

reasonable ground oi complaint if ihe
public attribute to him other than
purely disinterested motlyfis for his
malevolent attacks upon Mr. Mackiu
tosh since that gentleman declined lo
purchase a newspaper then generally
understood to be an unprofitable enterprise. On the oilier h.-iiul it is significant thai the "Miner" was changed
from a weekly to .-i semi-weekly ami

a considerable sum of "Martin money"

Toast to the Queen.
The following is a verbatim report of
a speech in giving the toast of "The
Queen" at a recent agricultural show
dinner in Scotland. The chairman began :
"Noo, gentlemen, will ye a,' llll your
glasses for I'm aboui. lo bring forrii
'The Queen,' (Applause.) Om- Queen,
gentleman, is really a woitderfn'
woman, if 1 may say It ; she's one o'
Ihe good auld sort. Nae whiginnlceries
or falderals about her, hut a douce,
daecent body. She's resectable beyond a dooi. .Shu has brocht up n
grand fnniily o' wei-1-faiired lads nnd
hisses—hei mildest sou being a credit
to any mil her—and they're a' weel
married, Ae daughter is nne less tbnn
married to the Duke of Argyll's son
and licit, (Cheers.) Gentlemen, >e'll
no' believe it hut I ance saw Ilie Queen.
(Seosatiob.) I did. It waa when I
took my auld broon coo to Perth show".
I remember her weel—sutth color, such
hair!" (Interruption, and crlesof "Is
il the coo or Ihe Queen y
ing ?")
"The Queen, I beg your pardon, but
I was talking abtiOt lhe coo. However, ns to the Queen, somebody pointed her oot. lo me nl Perth station, nnd
there she wns, smart nnd tidy-like ;
and says Ito inysel', 'Gin my auld
woman at home slips awn,'ye neediii

from Jackson's rnnch up Myers creek
the distance by road from Midway to
this properly would be only about
seven miles and much of the trade of
lhat district would come here.
The City of Paris mine, in White's
eamp, has been sending oul ore for
some weeks past, the total quantity
shipped to date being aboitt 1,000 tons.
The ore is hauled in wagons to the
Granby Oompany'sBuielternear Grand
Forks, where nlreiidy one heap of 400
tons bus been rousted and preparations
nre in progress for similarly treating
another lot. ll is expected tlmt the
average daily output will shortly be
increased to about 1(1 Ions.
Ata meeting of the Mining [ns'ttute
of Scotland, held December 0 at Kil
inarnock, a piper on ''The Probable
DUKltion of tlie Scotch Coal Field*
was read by Mr. Hubert Droll, lu the
course of bis contribution Mr. Dron
showed that from 1851 m the present
day the output of coal from Scotland
had represented mi an average 13.8 per
cent of tlmt nf the United Kingdom.
He gave the estimate on the assumption tbat the Scotch output had always
maintained tbe same ratio to that of
the United Kingdom. On these llgures
he estimated the total amount of coal
from Scotland to tbe present ti as
l.oOl.lHKI.IKKl tons. By calculations he
had arrived at the estimate that
10,121.000,000 tons of coal were slill
available, and by cnrefiillv noting the
amount of home consumption and
export trade he hail arrived at the conclusion thnt all the proven coal in
Scotland would be exhausted liy the
year 1089 and the reserve coal hy 2080.
The vital consideration was that within a comparatively short time Scotland
would be unable to supply the necessary coal for the continuance of that
Increase of the trade and population
which had been so marked a feature uf
Ihe progress of tb" present century.

with values as goml as In oilier workings,
The south drift bad reached 11 distance of 1B0 feet from the cross-cot
tunnel and the showing was most
highly encouraging. The ledge

a still stronger body of ore will be met
150 feet further snllthi there being a
body of quartz on the surface nbove

found the veins continuous to the
south limits of the claim.
Mr. Snyder expresses the conviction
that the whole body of quart7, can be
treated on the spot, at a large prolit,
and that with some sorting a considerable quantity ot high grade ore can be
obtained. Ha estimates lhat there aro

Canadian  Justice,

Sentenced to life imprisonment on

That is the record nf lhe fat,, of the
three dynamiters tried at Welbind fnr
hlo'wing up the lock at Thorold on
April 21,over a month ngn. The Canadian courts are. swift, yet there, is no
reason to believe thnl, the prisoners
have not had as substantial justice ns
if they were tried under the slower
and much less sure procedure of the
United Sta'es.
It may never be publicly known just

But justice Ims called us, forward, and

There's many a gallant story that the
papers daily tell,
Tales of mai velloos daring in a blizzard nf shot nod shell.
They teem of lbe power of umpire—
lbe deeds of Canada's eons-
Men who rushed the trenches, facing
tlie enemy's guns;
Men whu never faltered, but eagerly

And took their'death wounds like heroes—Iheir glory their monument i
But what of their widows and orphans f
Ah! i uu do not work in vain,
For vou have remembered that someone will never enllie home again.
Vuu. too, have fulfilled your duty, nsn

You have helped 11 hern's widow, yon

You have brought upon sorrow, comfort -. and upon darkness, light,
And that's why we're proud to thank

More Settlers for Canada.
The veteran missionary superintendent of the Presbyterian chinch in the
Canadian North west, who is well
known iu Vancouver, nl the recent
uieeting of the synod nl. Toronto, innd"
some interesting Statements, He snid
lhat io lSWlhere arrived411,000 settlers
ill the Northwest. In 1890 there were
60,000 newcomers and l tiU yenrs it is
expected there-will be between 7(),0;«)
and'76,000 who Will tutor the western
districts of Canada seeking to establish
homes. There has been some criticism
ol tile quality of the new settlers, par*
liciilarly ihe Duiikhobnrs. In Ihe esii-
miilion of Dr. Hoberlson these people
are the right koul of settlers. They
are people nf guod physique, they are
not lazy, they build gond houses, and,
above nil, Ibey nre ocoupylug lauds
that the Canadians left idlu for years
and years. "Tbey don'l seek for suljt
jobs iu the cities, where Ihey can wear
gnuil c'.nilies and keep their hands
clean," Ur. Hoberlson said, with em-
phiu-is. "Tliere is too much of that
among ourselves. The storekeepers,
spelik well uf tbem. aud their women
have, umuyof tbem, mai rled Canadian |
farmers out Ihere, \\ hy
Canadian girls won't go nui
