VISITORS   GALORE!
Two Hundred on the Special
Excursion
Of Representative Business Men
B. C. to Greenwood���Tendered
Banquet By the Citizens.
They came, and saw, and were conquered. Yesterday 200 visitors, representing the business interests in various
parts of the Province, arrived on the
C. P. R. on schedule time. They were
welcomed at the depot by a large number of citizens and the band. The party
was met at Grand Forks by Mayor
Hardy and Messrs. C. S. Galloway, D.
A. Cameron and Duncan Ross, who
went as a delegation. Upon arrival the
party was piloted by tbe committee in
charge, headed by the band, to the city,
where they were "put up" at the club
and distributed among the different
hotels. The greater number, however,
were obliged to sleep in the tourist cars
in which they came to Greenwood, by
the way, four in number. Every hotel
and bed in town were filled.
W, F. Peters, district freight agent of
the C. P. R-, Nelson, was chaperon.
The party included representatives of
the Boards of Trade of Victoria, Vancouver, New Westminster, Nelson, Rossland, Kaslo, and other points in Kootenay too numerous to give a list of their
names. Among them were Thos. Earle,
M. P., W. A. Ward and L. G. McQuade,
Victoria: J. C. McLagan, editor World,
Vancouver; F. Buscombe, Vancouver;
T.J. Trappand John Hendry, New Westminster; Hon. T. Mayae Daly, Rossland; Rev. Mr. Frew and Capt. Troupe,
Nelson ;G. 0. Buchanan, Kaslo, and representatives of the press, railways, etc.,
a large, lively and influential body of
mainly business men.
The spread at Barrett's hall, where
arrangements were made to banquet 200
people by the Clarendon, was a great
success; but as there were 200 excursionists, and about fifty of our own citizens, who had purchased tickets, it was
a physical impossibility to accomodate
them all, and many, both visitors and
citizens, were perforce turned away.
Mayor Hardy occupied the chair, and
was toastmaster, Mr. Galloway, president of the board of trade in the vice chair
An address of welcome was presented
by the Board of Trade, as follows:
To W. F. Peters, C. P. R , and Visiting
Gentlemen:���
The memberB of the Board of Trade of
the City of Greenwood desire on this occasion to officially extend to you. our
visitors, a hearty welcome. They wish
to express the gratification which it affords them to know that the importance
of the Boundary district has been so far
recognized by the officials of the Canadian Pacific Company as to invite the
representative business men of the Province here under their auspices; and by
you as to accept the invitation at the
sacrifice of much valuable time. The
members of the Board of Trade and Citizens of Greenwood regard it as a distinguished compliment to the present position and future prospects of this city.
It is with pleasure that they now undertake to receive, in what they conceivo
to be a fitting manner, a body of men
whose interests in the upbuilding of the
trade and industry of British Columbia
is common with our own; and whose
presence at such a di stance rfom their
own homes indicates the breadth of their
sympathies, andtheir commercial enterprise and foresight. It is cincerely
to bi hoped that the impressions carried away by you will not only be kindly
and favorable, but that their effect will
be to lessen the Bpace that geography
has created, cement the various interests of the district represented with those of Boundary; and greatly
extend business relations.
It is not our intention to dwell upon
the importance of Greenwood in contradistinction to that of the other towns
in the district. We recognize that your
visit is to the Boundary as a whole, and
it is as one of the important towns of the
district that we bid you welcome. Our
merits and possible future as a city must
be determined by the development of
trade and industry and as business men
you are well qualified to judge of the situation for yourselves. Greenwood is
wide open for your inspection.
Regarding our mines and mineral re
sources, tho subject is too large for particularizing here. We believe, however,
that they are destined to afford scope
for the greatest development yet witnessed on the continent of America,
with corresponding possibilities of commercial expansion, and that as representatives of business interests in this
Provinco you will not be slow to appreciate your opportunities.
In this connection, of the C. P. R. who
brought you here and to whose enterprise much of our progress and possibilities are due, it is our duty to express
our appreciation. While careful at all
times to guard rights and interests, as
affected by the operations of that corporation, we regard as of ��minent benefit
to the district the construction of the
Columbia & Western Ry., which it is
quite proper to assume will soon place
us on the short and main line to the
Coast, and the spur lines that have been
built into the various mining camps
about us. So far we are pleased to know
that thereturnsin traffic have far exceeded anticipations of the company, and
this is only a foretaste of what will occur
when the mines are shipping. None
more cordially than the members of the
Board of Trade and citizens of Greenwood
desire to see the Company for all time
to come well rewarded for the expenditure of $5,000,000 thus entailed. No
other fact, we may be permitted to observe, is more significant of what is contained in the Boundary district that such
undertaking should have been assumed, largely on faith, by a corporation, the management of which is noted
for great business capacity anil wise
foresight.
It is understood that the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company is making arrangements to extend the line of the
Columbia <k Western Railway westward
to the main line. We believe this to be
the most important enterprise, which
can now be undertaken in this Province
affecting the interests of Southern British Columbia and the Coast cities, and
we hope that you who form so powerful
a   factor   of   the   business   community

and Camp McKinney.
Increased Mining Activity, and a
Dumber of Transactions. ��� Dead-
wood a Great Camp.
The Deadwood Gold Copper Co. have
made an important strike on the St.
Lawrence Mineral Claim which joins the
Mother Lode on the north. They started a week or ten day's ago to do surface
work and have shown up a very fine
showing of surface ore similar in character to that of the Mother Lode. The
width has not yet been determined.
The men are now engaged in stripping
the vein but twelve or fifteen feet of fine
looking ore has been disclosed. It is
supposed that the St. Lawerence has a
continuation of the Mother Lode vein,
as it lies directly north and the lead is
in the same direction.
has a surface showing of between 250
and 300. feet. It is iron ore carrying
gold and copper. A shaft hat been sunk
for 50 feet, and at that depth a cross-cut
is being made. Three men are being
employed in the work of development.
The Greyhound, another property
there, which is being managed by Mr.
Oliver, has had considerable work done
on it, and is showing up magnificently.
The shaft is now down about 40 feet.
The ledge matter is ascertained to be
150 feet in width, and it is possible that
when developed the Greyhound and Ah
There will prove to be quite as remarkable mines as the Mother Lode.
Work on the Peacock claim, between
the Greyhound and the Sunset, has been
sufficiently completed to enable the
owners, Messrs. Naden and Mortimer, to
Crown grant it.
Bids have been received by the Dominion Copper Company for the installation of a 30-drill air compressor, Corliss engine, boiler and other machinery
to be used on the Brooklyn and Stem-
winder mines at Phcenix.
Continued on last page.
A carload of ore from the Boundary
Creek M. & M. company's property near
Greenwood lias arrived at the Trail
smelter. It carried 131 ounces silver,
two ounces two dwt. gold, 12 per cent,
lead and \% per cent copper and netted
$110.(>0 per ton over freight and treatment, or $2212 for the carload.���Rossland
Record.
During the past few weeks a number
of locations have been made on the hill
just north of Midway, most of these have
good copper showings, while a few carry
galena, which until recently was not
known to exist in this immediate locality.
On of the biggest strikes in this country was made two miles from Camp McKinney above White's bar, between the
forks of Rock Creek, The strike was
made on the Dayton mineral claim. Assays giving $800 in gold, 5 oz. in silver,
and one per cent in copper have been
obtained. It is claimed by the man
who made the strike there is a width of
ten feet on thu lead. The ore is iron oxide and full of free gold. The owners
are Hamilton and Younkin, and Hugh
Cameron, Camp McKinney; and H. J.
McQuaid, Greenwood. The news of this
strike has created considerable excitement. The claim is evidently the
source of the placer gold of Rock Creek,
which caused such a rush in the early
sixties,
Owing to the several strikes of big
ore bodies in Deadwood camp, there has
been considerable activity in mining
properties there during the past week.
The Ah There has been bonded by Pat
Hickey, Slocan, to Geo. D. Ley son of
Greenwood. The Sidney M Johnson,
which adjoins the Ah There, has been
sold to Gee. D. Leyson by H. Mortimer,
of the Bealey Investment Co. The
Durango has been sold by Jas. Patterson
to John Lind, of Anaconda. This is a
small claim in the direction of the Buckhorn. The Ah There, Greyhound, and
Sidney M. Johnson join, and are supposed to have the same lead.
Some remarkable ore properties are
showing up in Deadwood camp. A
strike was made on the Ah There, under
bond  to (ieo.   Leyson.     This  property

THE   LUMBER   TRUST.
It Has Completed its Organization .by Electing-
ZZH.'-'.:":. Officers.      ���.���,'..'	
JJJThe Kootenay and Vale lumber combine completed its ^organization yesterday at a meeting held in this city, by
electing the following officers \ President,
Mr. Louis Blue; first vice-president, Mr.
Peter Genelle; second vice-president,
Mr. John Genelle; secretary, Mr. J. E.
Poupore. The intention is to have
offices in this city and at Greenwood.
The Rossland office will look after the
business in this section, and the Greenwood office after the interests of the
company in the Boundary Creek country. The stock is divided as follows:
The company which constitutes the
combine is capitalized for $500,000 in $1
shares. Of the capital stock, $250,000
goes to Messrs. Louis Blue and A. Fisher,
and the other $250,000 to Messrs. Peter
Genelle & Co. In the property controlled by the combine, there are nine
mills located as follows: Rossland,
Ymir, Nakusp, West Robson, Plnenix,
two at Greenwood and Rock Creek. In
addition to this, the new corporation
has large timber reserves in this section
and in the Boundary Creek country.
Mr. J. E Poupore, the secretary of the
combine, was seen yesterday, and said:
"Our object is not to raise the price of
lumber, but rather to prevent competition. As a result of the close competition, there has been no profit in the
lumber business for some time past.
How will this be done? Well, in the
first place the price of lumber will be
uniform. Say a mill at West Robson
gets an order for lumber, and has two-
thirds of the kinds included in stock,
how will it be filled? Formerly the
order would be filled if the mill had to
go to work at an additional expense, and
often at a loss, to make the sizes which
he did not happen to have. This was
done so that the other mill men might
not get a chance to fill part of the order.
Now, however, we will send a part of
the order to the other mills to be filled.
There will be no profit killing competition like there has been. Then, orders
for lumber will be filled at the point
nearest to where it is to be used. There
are many advantages in the combine
which are too numerous to be mentioned.
I think from now on we will be assured
of a reasonable profit, and at the same
time the public will get its lumber just
as cheaply as formerly," concluded Mr.
Poupore.''���Rossland Miner.

points in South Kootenay.
The proposed line will consequently,
if constructed, prove all important to
the new isolated district of the Similka-
meen, and there is every reason to believe that the result of the endeavor cannot but prove very satisfactory for Canada's great railway from a financial
standpoin t.���News Advertiser, Vancouver.

What the Proposed Short Line to the Coast
Means.
A dispatch from Grand Forks states
that engineers are, on behalf of the Canadian Pacific. Railway, making detailed
surveys for a new line of railroad, which !
leaving the Columbia it Western branch
near Midway, will pass through the i
Similkameen Valley by way of Keremeos
and Princeton and finally connect with
the main line at Spence's Bridge. It is
added that there is every reason to believe that the route suggested will be
found fairly easy, in substitution for a
connection previously proposed between
Princeton and Hope, which is so far as
engineering observations indicate, much
more difficult to provide. There is consequently every likelihood of a beginning of the necessary construction work
in the early future.
This is excellent news, for the construction of the proposed new branch of
the Canadian Pacific Railroad will not
only open up most promising mine country in the Similkameen, together with a
fine pastoral area about the Nicola dis-

C. & W. RAILWAY EXTENSION.
Preparations Making for More Construction
Next Year.
It has been generally supposed for
months that the C. P. R. would
rest a year or two, after building the
Boundary branch to Midway before continuing on to a connection with the
main line. Lately, however, the trend
of events shows almost conclusively
that by early spring construction will
be resumed once more, and rushed as
fast as that now practically finished has
been.
Oscar Englund, stationed at Cascade
for a year as division engineer of the
C. P. R. during construction, was in
the Similkameen during the summer
and fall, and came out recently to take
a trip to the Old Country. At the request of Chief Engineer Tye, however,
Mr. Englund has returned post haste to
the Similkameen, and with a force of
about twenty assistants will make permanent locations for the extension, and
remain in the mountains for most of the
winter.
It was the original intention to run
the line to Penticton, and thence west
to Hope on the main line, but owing to
the sudden drop required to get down to
the Okanagan lake, this route has been
abandoned. After leaving Rock Creek,
the line as now virtually decided on,
will run to Keremeos and Princeton,
through the Similkameen valley, and
thence on to Spence's Bridge���not following the route to Hope. By the new
survey it is claimod that satisfactory
grades can be obtained. It is to establish these grades that Englund and
other engineers are now in the field,
with instructions to complete the work
as soon as possible. Chief Engineer
Tye himself has just been over the proposed route,
It has also been virtually decided
that when construction begins again it
will be from Spence's Bridge, and probably the first contract will be for 150
miles of grading ���Cascade Record.

A SINGLE STANDARD.
There should be a little more uniformity than we have in the matter of time.
It is quite difficult at any particular
moment to tell just where we are at;
hence confusion. We are told that
there is a time to weep, and a time 10
laugh, and times for various other emotions and acts. We have them all in
Greenwood. There is one time for the
city, as regulated by Miller's chronometer, another for the C. P. R., and
another for the mines. It would be
highly desirable if some uniformity could
be introduced into the flight of our ancient enemy in and around Greenwood.
At present he takes his departure so irregularly that all kinds of mistakes are
liable to occur.
CONCILIATION AND ARBITRATION
A petition has been circulated
throughout the Province, to be presented at the next session of the legislature, asking for the repeal of the
present Labor Conciliation and Arbitration Act of 1894; and the substitution
of an act based on the lines of that in
force in New Zealand. The late administration passed an Act in 1893, that
was introduced by Lieut.-Col. Baker,
Provincial Secretary and Minister of
Mines. It would have been an effective
measure, under certain conditions, but
it was too far ahead of the requirements
of the Province, and altogether' too
elaborate. In fact, at that stage it was
not needed, although as subsequent
events have shown, it was not without
justification, looking to the future. So
apparent was the non-necessity, if we
may be permitted to so express it, of the
Act as it then stood, and the elaborate
machinery provided under it, that it
was repealed at the following session and
the present Act, drafted by A. B
Gray, of Nelson, then the head of the
Bureau, was enacted in its stead. So
far, with one exception, the Act has not
bten called into requisition, and as
legislation instituted by the late administration is not greatly appreciated
by the present government it is not
likely to be during its regime at least.
There is room, however, now for some
practical measure providing machinery
that may be taken advantage of when
occasion requires. With the development of mining and industrial conditions, the relations between the two
great forces of the present day, naturally become more sensitive; and the in-
interests affected correspondingly great.
If, without creating too much machinery, a court, or courts, of arbitrament
could be established, many difficulties
might be settled without reaching the
acute stage, and possibly such troubles
as now exist in the Slocan brought to
an end.
PARTY    LINES.
A very interesting discussion is being
carried on in the columns of the Victoria papers, over the introduction of
Dominion party lines in provincial politics. The Colonist, though for years a
Conservative paper, does not believe in
the principle; and the Victoria Times,
which is a Liberal organ, for once agrees
with its contemporary, but for reasons
which are not quite the same. The
Colonist wants to see the present provincial Government, which succeeded
the Turner administration, routed horse,
foot an artillery; and the Times wants
to see it remain in power, although the
Premier, and the leading factor of the
administration, Mr. Cotton, are both
Conservatives in Dominion politics.
The Times probably fears that a worse
thing might happen.
On the other hand A. E. Mc. Phillips,
one of the city representatives in the
local House, is in accord with the New
Westminster convention of Liberal-Conservatives, and although elected by
members of both parties, is strongly in
favor of a straight party fight. In Victoria, and on the Island, there is a good
deal of division of opinion among Conservatives on that point; while in Vancouver, and New Westminster, and possibly throughout the Mainland, Liberal-
Conservatives are generally in favor of
party lines.
Logically, as the Miner has previously stated it, there is no good reason for
the introduction of Dominion party lines
in provincial politics���the issues are not
identical; but owing to the modern development of party ism, more especially
in all Anglo-Saxon communities, what
is practicable and most easily workable
supersedes theory. This is exemplified
in many ways. It is difficult, and has
been found difficult and disorganizing, for parties to re-arrange themselves in different elections,
fighting on one side with one set of
friends atone time, and against the same
set of men at another time. In provincial politics, however, the great advantage of party lines as suggested, is that
it makes the whole party responsible
for the legislation enacted, and not one
or two individuals; and hence leaders
would be more careful about favoring
personal interests which may conflict
with party interests. In the past there
has been, and at the present time there
is, too much special legislation, which,
if it had to obtain the support of a party
as a whole, would either be modified or
not permitted at all. It is possible and
quite practicable for both parties in Dominion politics to each have a provincial platform, apart from Dominion issues, and, therefore, in that sense it is
logical enough to divide accordingly.
However, whatever are the relative
merits of the two contentions, Booner or
later by force of circumstances party
lines will come. That is generally conceded. The only question is how soon
they should be introduced. The Liberal-Conservatives in convention have evidently concluded that the time has already arrived.

The members of tbe Greenwood Miner's Union have requested the Minimi to

the success of the occasion and

gratified to know that their efforts

There was not a quorum at the Council Board on Monday night, only Mayor

For the month ending Nov. 30th, ihe
ore shipments from Rossland mines
amounted to 104,000 tons, valued at two
and three-fourths millions of dollars,
gross. For the corresponding eleven
months of 1898, the ore shipments
amounted to 103,000 tons, valued at
about $2,200,000.
Owing to the state of the labor question in the upper country, and the absence of a regular publication of ore
shipments, I am unable in this letter to
give even an approximate of the shipments from Nelson, Slocan, and other
points, but these will be forthcoming
later.
One of the chief reasons which accounts for a considerable margin between calculated and actual output this
year is, that the facilities for shipment
have not proved to be as successful as
the management had calculated upon.
This is especially noticeable of the shipping facilities of the War Eagle and
Centre Star. These facilities, however,
are being gradually worked up to the capacities for which they were designated ;
and as the ore in sight both in the War
Eagle and in the Centre Star is stated by
the management to have greatly increased of late, we shall soon see the
weekly shipments of the mines here averaging at least 0,000 tons. That is to
say, for 1900 the output will in all probability double that of 1899, amounting
at least to 300,000 tons. This is not at
all improbable when it is borne
in mind that the regularly shipping
mines will shortly be reinforced by some
new aspirants, such as the Grant, Josie,
No. 1, the Sunset No. 2, and some others the names of which have not been
made familiar to the public. Here as
elsewhere there have always been sanguine estimates made. In earlier times
every prospect was a mine, but we are
gradually learning the way to discriminate, and experience is thus teaching
wisdom. Hone prospect out of every
twenty should turn out to be a mine,
it ought to be satisfactory enough. In
the earlier days of the camp too mi.iii
was taken for granted, hence "barren
diorite.his mossy couch extended, and
star of gold the sparkling pyrite blended."
Happily the community is reaching
the stage where imagination no longer
runs riot, and the prosperity of the trade
is largely measured by its production.
The promotion and development of the
Giant continues along substantial lines.
The generally westward strike of Red
Mountain ore bodies has always impressed one with the richness of the
mineral zona which has many line outcrops on tin' west flank. Tho development of the Giant is the beginning of at
least, threi or four enterprises in that
part of Bed Mountain which lies in the
direction of the strike. Amongst old
timers this portion of the camp has always been I eld in great esteem.

What the News Advertisers Thinks of the Excursion to the Boundary.
The excursion to the Boundary country of a goodly company of Vancouver
and Victoria merchants, which starts
from this city on Tuesday next, will
doubtless years hence be regarded as a
notable incident in our Province's history, for the visit will mark the opening
up by Canada's great railway of what is
to become one of the greatest copper and
copper-gold mining regions on this Continent. It should herald also the early
formation of mutually important and
profitable trade relations between the
merchants of this city and Victoria, and
the business men of several districts in
the Boundary country in each of which
there is likely to grow up a mining town
and general supply centre of considerable
importance.
There is already little or no doubt that
there will in Boundary speedily arise at
least two and perhaps more cities, fairly
comparable with such important centres
in South Kootenay, as Nelson and Rossland, respectively. One of these cities
will be Greenwood, but there are several
other important points in Boundary
which will enter into keen, if friendly
rivalry, with that city.
As yet only small shipments of trial
ore have been made from Boundary, but
more development work and smelter
building is there already active, and
more than one town even now possesses
very substantial business blocks, many
active and enterprising traders and a
considerable nucleus of population. The
great banks of Canada have already occupied the field; leading financiers of
Canada and the United States are interested in many projects. There too
scores of shrewd business men have
already settled down and established
themselves in the usual trades of a new
country; a small host of professional
men have followed in their train, and
there is also a general population of several thousand people, all more or less
directly connected with mining enterprise.
The outcome will even so early as next
year be a beginning of very large shipments from Boundary of ore treated and
concentrated, and the transaction of a
more than corresponding aggregate of
general business. In the transaction of
much of this we have every hope that as
a result of next week's excursion and its
facilities for the personal investigation
of commercial opportunities, full many of
our City merchants will largely and profitably participate.���Vancouver News-

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
A   PIONEER    PROSPECTOR.
One of  the  Very
First  Men
Creek.
on   Boundary
James Stevenson, Princeton, was in
the city several days of last week. He
was on Boundary Creek in 18(i0 with
the first rush, and remembers the first
white woman, the wife of a prospector,
named Bean, who ever entered the district. He has been through the placer
gold excitements of Cariboo, Rock creek
and Granite creek. At the latter place
which is 12 miles from Princeton, he is
interested in the principal placer company, the Granite Creek Hydraulic
company, in which he has great confidence, and has large interests in
the Similkameen district.
There is, he says plenty of virgin territory for prospectors all around Princeton, along the Similkameen towards its
head waters and in all the thirty-five
miles to the summit of Hope mountain
extending from the boundary for fifty
miles to the north. The finds so far
made in these localities are of the most
encouraging character.
Stevenson is one of the best known
pioneers of the Province, and is an interesting conversationist.
He went with the great rush to Cariboo and was interested in the famous
Prince of Wales, Cameron, Moffatt and
Bruce claims. Mr. Stevenson went out
of Cariboo a rich man and bought 400
acres of the richest land in the Fraser
river delta which he still owns.
Twenty-two years ago he located the
Gold Mountain claim, the first quartz
claim ever recorded in the Yale district.
This claim has a romantic history. It is
generally supposed to be lost but Mr.
Stevenson says he can go to it at any
time. It is high up in the mountains
and in a most unfrequented and inaccessible place. The vein is only about
four feet wide but the quartz is of fabulous richness running as high as $20,000
to the ton. An Indian was with Mr.
Stevenson when he located it, and for
many years this Indian was the only
man in the world besides him who knew
where it was. Ten years ago he had
grown so old he forgot the way to it and
when he tried to go there he was unable
to do so. When asked why he had not
worked the prospect Mr. Stevenson said
he had been waiting all these years for
a railroad to go in there and open up the
country, that it was too inaccessible now
to be worked without great expense.
He expects to visit it next summer and
may take steps for its development.

The Columbia & Western train from
Rossland did not get in Friday night till
quite late, being eight, hours late owing
to an accident that occurred to the train
going to Rossland the night before. The
train ran into a boulder as big as a house
near China Creek between Robson and
Trail where there is a sheer precipice to
the Columbia river of 1,000 feet. The
engine was thrown off the track and the
whole train would have plunged into
the river had it not been for a jutting
point of rock on which the engine
lodged.

The supreme court of appeal, held in
London on the ninth inst., has decided
that the Times has no copyright in its
report of speeches. This decision reverses the judgement of the chancery
division of the high court of justice, rendered last August in the case of the
Times versus John Lane, who published
the speeches of Lord Rosebery that had
first been published in the Times.
Among a number of amusing schoolboy's essays contributed to the current
Cassell's Saturday Journal is the following by a youthful essayist, aged ten:
"Krugger and Kannerbulism is one. He
is a man of bind. Mr. Chamberling has
wrote to him sayin come out and lite or
else give up the blud of the English you
have took, he is a b'oardutchnian and
a wicked heethin. lord Kitchener has

General Joubert, when he was in New
York City a few years ago as the guest
of Henry George, told with modesty
says the Sun, of his negotiations with
the British at Majuba Hill, and his eyes
sparkled as he recited bis reply to the
British commander-in-chief. "It does
not comport with these," said the British general, pointing to the decorations
on his breast, "to accede to your terms."
To which said Joubert, pointing to his
riflemen: "And it does not comport
with those to offer any others."
With the possible exception of Carmen
Sylva, Queen of Rouinania, the most accomplished of European queens is the
charming young Queen Amelia of Portugal. Queen Amelia, who inherits her
literary talents from her father, the late
Compte de Paris, author of a history of
the American Civil War and of a history
of tlie English Labor party, besides many
other works dealing with political and
social questions of the day, has taken
her degree of M. I)., and is now the chief
physician of her husband and children.
The Queen was married at Lisbon thirteen years ago to the then Crown Prince
Duke of Braganza, now King Carlos the
First.
Fd Tufts, of Los Angeles, was playing
golf with a friend recently. When he
drove from the third teeing ground, he
sliced the ball badly and sent it away to
one side. It stopped just in front of a
grazing cow, and Tufts came up just in
time to see it disappear into the bovine
mouth. When his Opponent had made
his stroke, Tufts untethered the cow and
with many sounding thwacks of his club,
drove the beast to the third hole. There
lie made her disgorge the ball, and neatly holing it, announced that he had made
the hole in two strokes. His opponent
camly finished the hole in seven and
claimed the hole. "But I made it in
two," protested Tufts gleefully. "No,
you didn't," declared the other; "you
made it in thirty-nine. You hit that
cow thirty-seven times, for 1 counted
every stroke," and Tufts conceded the
hole.
Lord Archibald Campbell, who has
designed a reversible cloth for the kilts
of the Highland regiments, with the t;ir
tan on one side and a plain neutral tint-
on the other, has always been a great
champion of the Highland dress. He
was one of the many great Scottish
noblemen who, in 1881, met at Stafford
House and solemnly kissed the dirk as a
pledge of their determination to resist
the war office threats to denationalize
the Highland regiments. In 1887, when
the Cameron Highlanders came home
from foreigh service, the fight was renewed ; and again in 1802, when the gallant Seventy-Ninth were in jeopardy
of losing their tartans, Lord Archibald
Campbell and his party were on both
occasions victorious.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
AGREEMENT  IN  SIGHT.
Probable Compromise Between Union Miners
and Mine Owners.
The Sandon Paystreak says : On
Monday evening G. 0. Buchanan, John
Keen and 0. T. Stone, of the Kaslo
Board of Trade, and F. A. Wood, George
W. Hughes, C. H. Hand and A. W.
Wright, of the Silver-Lead Mine Owners'
Association, and Mayor Pitts of Sandon
met representatives of the Sandon
Miners' Union in the Association Hall
in an unofficial parley about the labor
difficulty. The result of the conference
was that the members of the association made known their willingness to
pay the union scale to muckers, car men,
etc., and to pay $3.25 to hand drillers
and $3.50 to band drillers in shafts and
machine men. They would also recognize the union and make a compact to
extend over a number of years binding
themselves to pay the above rate of
wages.
As the meeting was unofficial so far
as the association was concerned, it has
not yet been formally considered by the
union.
A meeting of the association is billed
to take place on the 5th inst., at which
it is probable that a motion will be
adopted appointing representatives to
meet the union officers and make an
official offer of compromise. The matter will then receive the speedy consideration of the Miners' Union,
ACCIDENT   AT   OLD  IRONSIDES
A Miner Seriously Hurt by a Falling Bucket.
On Friday night at 7 :30 a serious accident occurred in the 325-foot shaft at the
Old Ironsides mine. The 300 lb. bucket
was being lowered from the 200 to the
300-foot level, with Engineer W. O. San-
ford at the lever. AVhen it got away,
the engineer became confused and the
heavy iron ore bucket dropped on the
head of Patrick Sullivan, who was working on the shaft, where be had a contract. *
Sullivan was quickly taken to the Old
Ironsides hotel, and Drs. Foster and
Boucher sent for. It was found that
the injured and insensible man had sustained serious injuries about the head,
but which were not necessarily fatal.
Both physicians remained with b.Jlivan
all night, and this morning announced
him in a way to recovery if no complications set in.
It is almost a miracle that the victim
of the accident was not killed outright,
if the bucket dropped from any considerable height, which of course cannot be
determined now. Sullivan is a young
man of 30 or 31 years, and unmarried.���
Phcenix Pioneer.
A School for Anaconda.
It is understood that there are sufficient pupils in and near Anaconda to establish a school there. When the distance from there to the new school
building in the north end of the town is
considered, the necessity for another
one to be located in the south end is all
the more apparent. Now that winter is
on, it will be a hardship for the smaller
children to go so far night and morning.
There ought to be temporary provision
made by the government for opening a
school somewhere in that end of the city
as soon as possible, and that a school
building will be necessary to be provided
for in the next estimates goes without
saying. With the establishment of the
smelter the population will be greatly
augmented. The children of Anaconda and that end of town can not be expected to travel a mile and a half or two
miles each day to school. It is possible
no suitable site could have been obtained
nearer the centre of the city. That, however, does not affect the rights of those
who live in Anaconda and vicinity.
St. Jude's Mission, Church of England.
A temporary mission room has been
found in Mrs. Foreman's hall, Government street, and on Sunday last two
services were conducted, at 11 a. m. and
7:30 p. m., by the Rev. W. A. Robins,
M. A., Oxon, the newly appointed missionary of this district.
There were large congregations at each
service, the room being quite filled at
the evening service, after which Mr.
Robins addressed the church workers
and earnestly asked for their cooperation.
Dr. Schon was nominated by the pastor as his own warden, and Ralph Smails
was elected as peoples warden.
R. T. Evans and G. B. Taylor were
chosen as members of the church committee. These gentlemen with the priest
in charge and church wardens will form
the church committee until Easter.
Several ladies and gentlemen have
promised to help in forming a choir and
with Mr. Smiths able assistance at the
harmonium, it is to be hoped that the
services will be brightened by good music and devotional services.
THE WEST  FORK.
J. Connick Back From There���Gives News of
Other Camps.
J. Connick, who has charge of the
development work on R. E. Brown's
properties on the West Fork, is in the
city and reports active development. A
blacksmith shop and other buildings
necessary have been erected and twelve
men are at work. Mr. Connick reports
a recent rich strike on the W4ashington.
The lead runs north and south, and
near where the shaft has been sunk
three remarkable ore chutes have been
disclosed within a few feet of each
other, one twelve, one eight and the
the other one and one-half feet wide, of
pyrrhotite and lead ore. At the present
depth the shaft is running into copper.
It is the intention to sink the shaft to
100 feet and then crosscut. Systematic
prospecting is being carried on on the
Templar and the Rambler, which are
southern extensions of the Washington.
Mr. Connick reports that the Carmine
is looking splendidly and recently a rich
strike was made. Eight men are at
work on this property, and the prospects are so good that the bond will in
all probability be lifted.
Three men are at work on the Sallie,
running a tunnel on the lead. This
property is three-quarters of a mile
west of the Washington and with the
same character of ore.
Work iu still in progress on the government wagon road, which is now
about three miles beyond the Fork.
Jay P. Graves, manager of the Knob
Hill, Old Ironsides and associated mines
at Phcenix, announces that the developments on these properties have been so
satisfactory recently that he will order a
new 40-drill compressor plant, to be in
by next July. The order will be given
as soon as Mr. Graves goes east, about
January 1st. There is already a 10-drill
duplex Rand compressor at the Ironsides, but this has how become inadequate for the service demanded of it
and will be still more so when shipping
begins in a few weeks. When the new
compressor is in the mines will have the
use of 50 machine drills, which is a
greater number than is operated by any
one concern in Britieh Columbia, if not
in the Dominion of Canada, though the
Le Roi plant at Rossland will exceed it
when it is completed. The Le Roi compressor now in use has 40 drills capacity.

that project your greatest moral support
and political influence.
In conclusion, the desire is expressed
that the present will be but on* of many
visits by you individually and collectively to this city and the right band of
welcome to-night is indefinitely extended. We say "Come again; come often.
Come and do business with us if you
can, but coma."
The regular toast list followed, and
an enjoyable evening was spent by all.
Dispersion took place at an early hour,
owing to many visitors being worn out
after their long travel, and for that
reason the speaking was very limited.
The prevailing sentiment was one of
great surprise that the citizens of Greenwood should, on two days' notice, be
able to banquet in such style 200 persons,
and their enterprise and|hospitality were
greatly commented upon. Undoubtedly the reception the visitors got will impress them most favorably and result in
great good to the city and district.
To-day our guests saw the city, visited
several of the camps around Greenwood
and leave at 3:15 p. m., for Grand Forks,
where they will be banqueted to-night.
They will be in Rossland on Sunday and
on Monday night will be tendered another banquet at Nelson.
E. C. Smith, publisuer. of the Grand
Forks Gazette, had trouble with his employees on account of non-payment of
wages. As a consequence the ex-compositors of the Gazette have formed a
company and are issuing a morning paper called the Daily Union, the first
issue of which has come to hand. Needless to say that the proprietor of tbe Gazette comes in for considerable share of
attention, which is not bestowed in the
kindliest manner. With the Daily
Miner, which is announced to start in
a few days, Grand Forks will have three
dailies.
There will be an Evening Concert tomorrow evening at Mrs. Foreman's Hall,
Government St., by Mr. A. Russell
Willson, elocutionist, of Vancouver, B.
C. The programme will include some
recitals, humorous and otherwise. A
ventriloquil sketch "A Chat with Granny" and selections on Edison's latest
and greatest Voice and Music Reproducer.
The Presbyterian congregation has
made arrangements to have the use of
Barrett's hall until ��� church has been
built. Services will be held every Sunday morning and evening.
Mrs. E. Kerfoot, Vancouver, late of
Manchester, England, is opening up a
Confectionary store in the building on
Greenwood street, lately occupied by
Mitchell, the tailor. She will make a
specialty of real old maid and English
plum pudding and Christmas candies
and confectionaries.
The B. C. Hotel, owing to the increase
of patronage has rented the building next
door and fitted it up with bed rooms.
The dining room, over which Mrs. McLennan has charge, has also been enlarged.

There were union services in the
Methodist church on Sunday last, Rev.
B. H. Balderston preaching in the morning and Rev. R. W. Trotter in the evening. The last named preached one of a
series of socialistic sermons on capital,
labor, society and the church, in which
the ideal or ultimate solution of tbe
problem of life was presented as that of
co-operation and common property,
owning or opposed to competition and
private ownersship.
