THE BOARD OF TRADE
Secretary Gaunce Replies to
the Miner.
HE TREATS  IN GENERALITIES
An Interesting Letter Making  No
Definite Reply to the Miner's
Criticisms.
To the Editor: Sir���I ask space for
a brief reply to your recent editorial
note re the Greenwood board of trade,
not for the purpose of newspaper controversy, but merely to afford you some
information that you may be enabled in
your next reply to an inquirer to speak
more kindly and more justly of a body
that I believe is both representative and
disinterested in its efforts for Greenwood. You say to your "Inquirer"
that the Greenwood board of trade has
never been representative of the business interests of the town. If the managers of the three banks of the town,
the mayor of the city, Aldermen Galloway, Sutherland and Sharp, Messrs.
Wood, Naden, Law, Caulfield, Smailes,
E. Miller, Thomas Miller, Williams,
Sperry, Kendrick, F. Keffer, A. G.
Fisher, McRae and many others, all of
whom are members of the board of
trade, are not representative of the hest
business interests of the town, who are?
If any others would like to join the
membership and enhance the usefulness of the board, I am sure they will
be welcome.
Your other most important criticism,
I think, does injustice to the council
of the board of trade. This body, consisting of ten members, were entrusted
by the board with the discharge of such
business as comes within its powers by
the by-laws of tho board of trade I do
not think it has exceeded such powers
even in the election of representatives
to the recent convention of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern British
Columbia. The board has not provided
its council with any meeting place, nor
has suggested preference for any one
place above another, so I do not think
anv pertinent charge is made when you
claim the council met in the back room
of a lawyer's office, although as a matter of fact it was in the front room. I
think your term "caucus" is ill-
advised, moreover as it was a meeting
to which the full council was summoned .
Since the last meeting of the hoard of
trade on July 7, when only fifteen members were present, the council has held
eight meetings, with from six to eight
members present, at each meeting, of
which important business bearing on
the interests of Greenwood has been
transacted. In that time correspondence has been had with different departments of both the federal and the provincial governments; with members of
both dominion and provincial parliaments. The annual report has heen
circulated in the most important mining contres of Canada and the United
States, and even placed in London anil
Paris; and efforts have been put lorth
on behalf of improved roads leading to
Central camp and the West Fork, which
have already borne fruit. This council,
moreover, has already acted on the
matter of representation at the Spokane
fair, having decided that it was difficult
in the present circumstances to secure n
fitting exhibit for the same, and as a result having decided not to recommend
the board of trade to take the matter
up. Here, at least, their action being
in sympathy with your closing sentence,
will doubtless gain your commendation.
If either of the two unhappy events to
which you refer actually took place,
viz: the sale of advance information re
the report of the board of trade and a
discrimination against the local newspapers, and misrepresentation at last
year's fair for personal advantage, I am
sure the board of trade is in no sense in
sympathy therewith, even as members
of the council have already expressed
themselves. Of the former action, if
true, I must presume thoughtlessness
the cause; of the latter I had never
heard of until seeing it in your columns.
I trust, Mr. Editor, that I have afforded you information sufficient already about the personell of the board
pf trade and of the conduct of the busi
ness of the council to justify your hearty
sympathy with both hereafter, and your
personal and editorial influence in making this body more representative of
the city's business interests than at
present. Greenwood needs���and the
board of trade needs���united effort.
Thanking you in advance for your
kiudiliness in affording me space in
your columns to state the case as it
stands, and promising the issue of a call
for an early meeting of the board of
trade if you and "Inquirer" will hand in
your names for membership, I remain
yours respectfully, W. G. Gauncb,
Secretary of Board of Trade.
A PECULIAR CASE.
A case unique in the history of jurisprudence is occupying the attention of
the courts in New York. Samuel Froom-
kin has entered suit against Harris
Hyman for having circulated a report
that the plaintiff smoked a cigarette on
a certain Sabbath. This, to the ordinary mind, would seem a very trivial
offence, yet Froomkin avers that the
circulation of the report has injured
him to the extent of $2,000. Both par-
ties-to this peculiar action are Jews.
The pious Jew does not light his fire,
nor the gas, and above all he does not
smoke tobacco on the Sabbath. Now
Hyman says that Froomkin did smoke
on the Sabbath, and hence the action.
This is the first case on record where
the smoking of a cigarette by an adult
has been the cause of legal proceedings.
The courts will probably consider the
cause too trivial to occupy their attention.���Economist.

At a meeting of the Greenwood fire
brigade held Saturday evening, a vote
was passed thanking Mrs. Lawder for
playing the piano at the dance Friday
night, and also to Mr. J. E, Hooper for
the use of his piano.
At the meeting hold Tuesday evening
last in Union hall, a Cooks' union was
formed under the Western Federation,
with It. Lucas, president; M. M, Bun-
gest, vice-president, and George Howe,
secretary. The organization Is ternpor-
porary, but a charter from the W, F. L.
will be applied fur, when the organization will be untile permanent.
Rev. T. De Witt Talmage sagely observes that " a newspaper whoso columns overflow with advertisements of
business men, has more influence in attracting attention than any other
agency that can he employed. People
go where there is business. Capital and
labor will locate where there is an enterprising community. No power on
earth is so strong to build up a town as
a newspaper well patronized, and its
power should be appreciated."
The Miner moved this week to the
old location below the Canadian Bank
of Commerce in the Naden-Flood building. This was necessary on account of
requiring larger quarters, having purchased a cylinder press for newspaper
and large jobbing. Heretofore the publisher of the Times has kindly allowed
tlie Miner to be printed in the pressroom of that paper. Moving is one of
the pleasures not often voluntarily indulged in by newspaper men, as the
machinery is so heavy, and it takes so
long to get straightened up. This is our
apglogy for the scarcity of mining and
local news in this issue.
IN  SOUTH   AFRICA
Another Letter From Strath-
cona's Horse.
HOW INFORMATION IS GAINED
From the Boers���Plunged Into a Barrel of Water Until They Give
Information,
Watervai, Bkipok, Transvaal, July
25.���I remember promising to write to
you and am now trying to fulfill my
promise. We have been guarding the
three-pier railway bridge here for a
little over a fortnight and have had
several encounters with the Boers during that time. We arrived here on the
5th, and just in time to save the bridge
from destruction. It was about 3 p.m.
when we sighted the bridge, and were
soon posted as patrols on the surrounding kopjes, where we held off the enemy
Our outpost was on a hill just beyond a
farm about a mile from the river, and
a few hundred yards beyond the farm
was a ridge topped with a few small
trees, The Boers made a dash for this
position and eight of us drove them off,
killing one and wounding another, At
one time the firing was general for some
mHes around, and after a while the
news came that our corporal was shot
while reconnoitering a kopje.
I got a great start the other day which
I think will amuse you. We were on
outpost and were watching some Boers
in the distance occupying a stone-walled
corral. Presently, as the weather was
hot, we all got very thirsty, audi volunteered to go down to the river with the
watter-bottles. The river was in a deep
donga or small canyon between us and
the enemy. T went 'oif foot and filled
the bottles in safety and was just having a drink when I heard some horses
trotting up on the opposite bank. I
crouched down in a hurry and cocked
my rifle, and presently over the skyline
came, not as I thought, a party to cut
me off, but two young colts running
loose.
On the way back the Boers fired some
shots at me but they fell short. We
gave them a volley back in return. So
far our regiment has lost two men killed,
seven wounded and eight men captured,
Captain Howard among the latter. I
believe that most of the captured men
are wounded.
The country here is rolling veldt with
occasional ranges of higher kopjes. It
is impossible to cross the river except at
certain points, as the banks are perpendicular and vary from 20 to 30 feet in
height. It is frightfully windy, and 1
fear the rainy season is upon us. So
far we have had lovely weather and
there is very little sickness in camp.
One of our troop died at Durban of enteric fever. I had a touch of it but cured
myself with a good dose of quinine.
Our camp is strongly entrenched now
and the Tommies have built a line
loop-holed wall all round us, bo that we
could hold off thousands. Railway
trains run here every day. It is a narrow gauge railway. St under ton is our
base of supply. There the Boers blew
up a railway bridge and destroyed the
work shops, hurrying all the connecting
rods of the engines. These latter were
found in an odd manner, It was discovered that one of the Boers in Stun-
derton knew of their whereabouts, so
he was promptly caught and ducked
head first in a barrel of water till he
confessed where they were hidden. It
is marvellous how soon the Royal Engineers had the line in repair and the
railway running. The Boer way of destroying the line is as follows: They
tear up the whole track ties and all, and
witli the help of oxen twist the whole
line over and over as you would a strap
with your fingers. This fortunately
does little harm aud can be repaired in
a few hours. The day before yesterday
our 15-pouuner shelled a corral in which
were a party of Boers. The lirst shot
fell short and the second one fell right
plunk into the corral. It was a lyddite
shell and everything hit became a yellow color. It is very easy to tell the
difference in sound between our rifle
shots and those of the Boers. The latter go ping, pong, while ours gu crack,
crock, crack, their mausers making a
double report. Ai.kx. Shaw.

FATAL ACCIDENT.
Robert Graham was killed in the
Cariboo mine at Camp McKinney last
Sunday while he was coming up the
shaft from the 400-foot level in the cage,
on which there was as well a heavy
mine bucket, and when the station at
the 200-foot level was reached for some
unexplained means the cage tipped,
man and bucket falling down the shaft
to the 400-foot level. The unfortunate
man was killed instantly. He was a
brother of Thomas and Patrick Graham, the former being the manager of
the Waterloo mine, Camp MeKinney,
the family having been actively connected with the camp for many years,
They are from Colville, Wash., and are
nephews of James Monaghar. of Spokane, formerly president and controlling shareholder in the Cariboo mine.
The remains were taken to Colville on
Sunday's train for interment.
HEWITT BOSSTOCkTaSSIGNS.
Hewitt Bostock, M. P., has assigned
his real and personal estate today to C,
J, Helliwell, accountant, for the benefit
of his creditors. The assignment has
been duly registered.
The Province Publishing Co. is not included in the Bostock estate, hut the B.
C. Printing & Lithographic Co. is included in the assets.
The assignment caused much surprise among those who heard the newB
on tho streets tonight. The Colonist
correspondent, on inquiring from the
proper authorities, was informed that
the assignment was due to numerous
large unprofitable investments in the
province, although the estate comprised
among its assets many valuable investments and and would pay over 100 cents
on the dollar.
Mr. Bostock, however, realizing that
large sums were not available readily to
satisfy immediate demands, thought tlie
safest and best way to satisfy creditors
was to assign and thus insure full returns for those who hud claims against
him.���Colonist.
LARGEST EXHIBITOR.
Angus K. Stuart, the Paris correspondent of the Vancouver Province,
writes that British Columbia is by far
the largest contributor to the Canadian
exhibit at Ihe great exposition, nnd
adds: " Without in any way wishing to
discriminate, I can safely say that hut
for the businesslike and hearty manner
in which the matter was taken up by
the Hon. Fred Hume, ii is practically
certain that Canada would not have
been able to cut the figure it has done
here. Other and older provinces might
perhaps make a note of this. The practical unit hard work of making this.collection fell un Mr. 0. J. Skinner." ll is
pleas.nit tn know that British Columbia
enjoys :i prominence among the provinces in' ihe Dominion represented at
the exposition, and that our mineral exhibit was awarded a grand prize.���Nelson Economist.

Month after month the work goes on
and there arenoencouragingresults; the
stockholders begin to cry out for dividends ; the treasury becomes depleted;
the directors look worried and careworn, and begin to believe that they
have been swindled and the property is
no good. They decide on one more
effort: The last block of stock in the
treasury is sacrificed and a few thousand
dollars are raised. A competent mining
engineer is found and hurriedly sent to
expert the property. In a few days a
wire is received by thecompany : " Property all right; money expended practically thrown away; would advise
that counter-jumper superintendent
be discharged and mining man sent
to take his place." And not till this
telegram is received have the directors
any doubt of the ability of their poor
relative to run a mine. Their implicit
faith in a fool for a mine superintendent has cost the company $50,000, an
expensive lesson, and one it is to be
hoped will soon be learned by those who
are putting their money into mining
properties in in the Boundary district
of British Columbia.

CONSERVATIVE CONVENTION.
A well-attended meeting of the local
Conservatives was held in Miller's nail
Wednesday evening, at which five delegates were appointed to attend the
convention at Revelstoke Saturday.
Those appointed were: James Kerr,
Robt. Wood, W. J. Kirkwood, Duncan
Mcintosh and J. W. Grier .who was
not [present). Mr. Kerr left on
yesterday's train for Revelstoke, taking
proxies from the other delegates and
from Phoenix and Midway. The choice
of a candidate will probably be either
Hon. T. Mayne Daly, Rossland, W. A.
Macdonald, Nelson, or Mayor Goodeve,
Rossland, local Conservatives favoring
them in the order named. Mr. Daly is
well known. Mr. Macdonald was leader
of provincial Conservatives for a number of years in the Manitoba legislature.
Mayor Goodeve is well known locally as
a clever platform speaker. The two
former are old-time John A. Macdonald
Conservatives.

MINING AND MINE MANAGEMENT
Mining in British Columbia has suffered serious drawbacks in its early
stages, tiie principal of which has been
mine mismanagement, resulting in
serious injury to many excellent properties. Experienced mining investors,
whether they be of the West or East,
clearly recognize the folly of putting in
charge of n mining property a man who
is not thoroughly conversant with every
phase of his occupation. Hobart &
Ilaywaid, Chas. Lane, Haggin, Daly,
Clark nnd other great operators in the
mineral regions of Western America do
not resort to the principle of putting in
control of their properties poverty-
stricken relatives who have no other
way of making a living, or financially
embarassed friends who are striving to
get a fresh start in life. These and other
groai mining men are not in the business for pastime, hut for the accumulation of wealth, and they want as
managers of (heir properties the most
capable men the country affords. They
would prefer pensioning their poor relatives, nnd starting their financially
embarassed friends up in some business
for which nature or education had
peculiarly fitted them, than to put either
in the management of a mining property, when his abilities lav altogether in
an opposite direction, and when such
appointment would tend towards lessening the profits which should accrue
from their investment. But the majority of Eastern Canadian mining investors in British Columbia have not
yet leaned n lesson from those who
have accumulated gigantic fortunes by
their investments in mining. They believe of course that only a mill man can
advantageously run a sawmill; that no
one hut a medical man should have
charge of a hospital; that an architect
is the proper person to prepare the
plans for the construction of a beautiful
residence, but they appear to be as
firmly convinced that any fool can
superintend the development of a mining property, and the result is that up
to the present time the poor relative or
the son of the principal stockholder of
tho company is generally put in charge.
A noticeable figure in the convention
was that of Smith Curtis, whom the
people of the south refer to as "Curtis
of Kootenay," because they say he is
the first representative of conspicuous
ability the Kootenays have ever had in
the local house, an opinion in which
the whole country will coincide. Mr.
Curtis, within the past year, has made
a permanent place for himself in tbe
public life of this province. He is an
ideal political leader, tactful, resourceful, fair, firm, with a wide knowledge of
men and affairs, tbe kind of a leader
who not only inspires confidence in his
followers, but also their love. A brilliant speaker, whose eulogy of Sir Wilfrid Laurier at the convention the other
evening will not suffer by comparison
with anything that the past master of
oratory himself has said. Mr. Curtis is
an advanced thinker on economic questions, but practical withal. Keep your
eye on Curtis. There is no position in
the gift of the electorate too big for bis
abilities, and the electorate itself will
recognize this fact in the near future.���
Kootenay Mail.
The electors of Yale-Cariboo ol ready
recognize the conspicuous ability of Mr.
Curtis, and would be pleased to advance
him to any position within their gift, if
it were not. at present he is in bad company. As a liberal he can expeet but
little. As a labor candidate he would
be returned to the Dominion house
hands down. But as a Liberal���that is
something else. For four years the
labor people of this province have
waited for the Laurier government to
redeem its pledges to Britisli Columbia
workers. They will wait no longer.
Their faith is dead in them. For sixteen years the Conservatives were in
power, and they failed to promise anything, even, and have always been opposed to every measure intended to as
sist the workers and they never had
faith in them. Now labor's only hope
is in labor. If Mr. Curtis would abjure
his present political faith he would soon
be placed in the lead of the reform
forces of not only the province, but of
the Dominion.���Industrial World.
What are the issues in the coming
Dominion election. Those of our people who have came from the east within
the last, year or two will say : " Why,
the principles of the two parties are so
different that the average schoolboy
knows the difference." But the men
who have lived in this province for more
than two years are generally of the
opinion that there is only one difference
between the two parties, and that is tlie
difference in their names.���Nelson

C. P. B. HOUSE BOAT.
A Most DeUghtfnl Outint Home  For Those
Who Desire It.
The new C. P. R. house boat which is
now completed and ready lor occupation
lies been visited by a large number oi
Nelson people, all of whom declare it
to be an ideal outing home. The boat
is completely furnished in every respect.
The four staterooms with their four
double and four single berths are
equipped with everything one would desire in a bedroom at home. In the dining room is all that a dining room requires, silverware, glassware, etc., and
the room itself is eafficiently large to accomodate any party that could travel on
the boat. The kitchen is complete, too,
and in fact there is nothing lacking anywhere. All of the rooms are carpeted
and the hallway is laid with oilcloth.
Upstairs you are in the open air, with
an awning to shield you from the sun
and a hammock if you would lie down
and read and rest. No more delightful
place to spend a week or two could be
imagined, provided, of course, the boat
is anchored in some of the thousand
beauty spots of Kootenay lake Nowhere, perhaps, in all the Dominion of
Canada is there a body of water offering
to the man of the reel and fly or he of
the gun such inducements as are
offered anywhere on Kootenay lake, and
nowhere are there more delightfully secluded places than can be found here.
And it is to give visitors the opportunity of seeing all this, under most pleasant conditions, that the C. P. R. has
caused to be built this__houBe boat. It
is to be rented to parties and at a figure
which makes it within the reach of
everyone who can afford an outing. The
boat itself will rent for $5 a day, with a
minimum charge of $20. It will be
towed to any point that can be reached
from Nelson at the regular towage
charge of 60 cents a mile, with a minimum towage charge of $5. All that
those who rent the boat have to do is
to Btock it with eatables and drinkables.
Nothing else is required by them unless
they desire a servant, and this the C.
P. R. officials will undertake to secure
for them.
THE MAN WHO HAD THE VOTE.
The following is an unreported incident before one of the commissioners
appointed to inquire into a certain English election petition:
What is your name?
George Jones.
^    Well, what do you know of this?
On the day of the election I went to
the Spotted Dog.
What did you do there?
I see'd a man.
Well, what did he do?
He gave me five shillings and said as
how I was to vote for .
Well, did you vote for Mr. ?
No sir.
What did you do then?
Went to the pig and whistle.
Well���there?
Then I see'd another man.
What did he do?
He gave me five shillings and said I
was to vote for .
And did you vote?
No sir.
What did you do then?
I went to the Red Lion.
And there?
There I see'd a man, too.
And did he give you five shillings to
vote for Mr. .
He did.
And did you?
No sir.
Why, here, on your admission, you
have obtained 15 shillings to vote for
one of the candidates; did you vote at
all?
��� No sir.
Why not?
Because I ain't got no vote: it's my
father, George Jones, who's an elector.
W. A. Galliher, the new Liberal candidate in Yale-Cariboo, named by the
Revelstoke convention to succeed Mr.
BoBtock at Ottawa, is well known in
Winnipeg. Mr. Galliher was in law
here in the early days and iB popularly
remembered as a good exponent of the
game of lacrosse under the colors of the
old 90th club. Mr. Galliher has prospered in the west and he will have
many well wishers here in theapproach-
ing contest for the commons.���Winnipeg Free Press.
If you ask a man for an ad or a few
localB, says the Toledo Daily News, he
will tell you he don't believe in advertising���a paper never read. But let
him be caught hugging the hired girl or
chasing a piece of loose calico up the
streel after dark, or struggling with a
jug of 'Tamarin ' water, if the printing
office is in the garrett of a twenty-story
building he would climb to the top and
ask the editor not to publish it in the
paper where everybody will read it.
