Matello,  a mucker, lost His life  by falling- to the bottom of the shaft, a  distance   of  215   feet.    The 'accident  happened  Monday  afternoon.    It was  the  result of carelessness on the part  of Matello and the' other muckers who  were in the shaft with him.    The engineer had been hoisting   ore during- the  afternoon.    The   signal , for   hoisting  ore is one bell, while for hoisting- men  is 3-1.    Matello and two other muckers  got on- the -bucket, each thinking the  other gave the proper signal   to the  engineer for hoisting   men.    But the  engineer received only one ring���the  signal for hoisting ore  and the bucket  came up at a:much faster rate than  is  usual with men on.    When  it reached  the top of the -shaft the men became  excited.'   The bucket went higher as is  necessary  to allow dumping the ore.  Matello  and one of   his   companions  jumped, : the; other   remained   in ;the  backet.   While his companion escaped  clear of shaft, poor Matello slipped and  fell in, plunging to his death. 215 feet  below.    He  was frightfully   mangled  and   death   must   have   been   instantaneous.  Matello was an Italian about 40 years  of age. He. has a cousin working on  the. railway grade and another in.  Idaho. ...,-���  Provincial-Constable McMynn visited  the Mother Lode and. made inquiries,  but did not consider an inquest necessary. The remains were : interred in  the Greenwood cemetery, the funeral  taking place from Gulley!s~ undertaking, parlors on; Wednesday.  Queen," brought the pleasing evening  to a close.'

E. G. Warren, of Rossland, who has  charge of several properties in Camp  McKinney, was in the city, this week.  They visited several properties including those in which they are financially  interested. They met members of the  board of; trade in reference to plans  for bringing- the business of their  properties into closer touch with the  city. Mr;. Jaffray stated that Dominion  Copper company,, which had securied  Mackenzie, Mann & Co.'s properties,  were disposed to do everything possible tomalce Greenwood a large commercial and mning center.  Mr. Paul Johnson, the well known  smelter expert, has arrived-in Nelson  from California and will reach Greenwood in a few days. Mr. Johnson will  consult with Mr. Keffer, the manager  of the B. C. Copper company, relative  to the selection of a site for a smelter.  The report in Tuesday's News-Advertiser that the smelter will be built at  Cascade, nine miles distant from the  Mother Lode mine, is palpably inaccurate. The smelter will be built on  Boundary creek, probably at the mouth  of Copper creek.  R. J.

The Rossland Board of Trade  is  to
be congratulated  upon being   instrumental  in securing the conference of
the boards of trade of the Kootenays
and Boundary Creek.    When the  idea
was suggested to the different boards,
it was favorably considered because it
was felt that there were many matters
of   public  interest upon which the different boards could agree and that an
organization representing- the different
•ections of  the province would   have
greater   weight    than   an    individual
board.    The conference could not be a
greater   success.       Every    board    of
trade in East and West Kootenay and
Boundary Creek district   was   represented.     When   the    conference   was
opened in the  rooms of J. S. C. Fraser
the president of the Bank of Montreal
the following delegates were present:
Moyie,  J. P. Farrell; Grand  Forks,
W.  B.  Cochrane   and   Smith, Curtis;
Fort Steele,..J.  A.   Harvey  and E.J.
Walsh;     Cascade,   . Stanley , May all;
Revelstoke,   T. .L,, :Haig   and   J.   T.
Brewster; Trail,  Col.  E.  S;  Topping-
and'W. H. Aldridge; Greenwood, A.  J.
McMillan and Duncan Ross, and Ross-
land, _Hon.' T.  Mayne Daly,: and J. S.
C. Fraser.     Subsequently,  during the
afternoon  session,   Messrs. : Roderick
Robertson  and  Frank Fletcher,   and
Messrs. G. O.Buchanan and H.Giege-
rich,  representing Nelson   and Kaslo
respectively,  arrived and took part in
the proceedings.
Mr. Fraser the president of the Rossland board was appointed en airman: of
the conference, Duncan.Ross was appointed vice-chairman and H; W. ,C.
Jackson secretary, with Fred C. -Mof-
fatt of the Rossland Miner as his assistant.
Messrs. Daly, McMillan, Haig and
Harvey were appointed a committee to
outline a plan of procedure. They
recommended that an association be
formed to be known as the Associated
Boards of Tiade of Eastern British
Columbia, the membership to be composed of two delegates from each.of
the boards of .trade now existing or
hereafter organized in the mining districts of Yale. East and West Kootenay
and Cariboo. That the annual meeting be held on the first Thursday in
August the place of next meeting to be
decided by a majority vote at each annual meeting, emergency meetings to
be called by the executive committee,
who will decide time and place; that
the purposeof this organization shall
be to discuss and take action upon all
questions affecting the general welfare
of the people residing within the jurisdiction of the association, and more
particularly all matters affecting the
mining industry, the officers of the
board to consist of a president, two
vice-presidents, secretary and an executive committee of six members
representing- the various mining districts, each board to pay an annual fee
of $15 for general expenses, each delegate present to have a vote. The
order of business and regulations tor
discussion was also provided.
From the different suggestions offered by different boards, the committee also prepared a programme of 18
subjects to be considered but as these
subjects are referred to as they were
discussed a list is not necessary here.
A. J. McMillan one of the Greenwood
delegates introduced the first resolution. Mr. McMillan was one of the
most useful members of the conference.
He was always ready to urge anything relating to the district he represented and his knowledge of all
parts of the province and London was
of the greatest value to the conference.
The first resolution which he introduced and which was seconded by Hon.
Mr. Daly was as follows :
That this meeting- of the Associated
Board of Trade of Eastern British Columbia hereby .urges upon the provincial government the desirability of issuing quarterly bulletins, giving-
information with reference to the output of the mines of the province and
such other general information on
mining matters as may be of putilic
After a brief discussion   a committee
consisting of  Messrs.   Ross,   Harvey,
Curtis and Mayall were appointed for
the purpose of drafting a resolution
dealing with the mail service. On
Friday morning Mr. Ross moved, the
following resolution. It was seconded
by Mr. Harvey and carried unanimously :
Whereas, the attention of the associated Boards of Trade of Eastern
British Columbia has been directed to
numerous complaints iri reg-ard to the
irregularities in the mail service in
various parts'-of ..the- Kootenays and
Yale district, to delay in securing^
adequate postal facilities for new and
rapid growing- mining: districts, to the
insufficient salaries; paid to the postmasters in towns and cities which
have j sprung into prominence during-
recent years; .to carelessness on the
part j of stage companies having contracts* for the conveyance of the
mails, to delays in forwarding mails to
points adjacent to!-.'main lines of railway land generally- to.insufficient and
unsatisfactory, mail service in the districts mentioned :   !.
And whereas, particulars of complaints will be furnished to the honorable,|the postmaster-general, should he
so desire :
Therefore be it resolved, that this ^association desire to respectf iilly call the
attention of the honorable, the postmaster-general, to the complaints referred to and to urge upon him to take
such; steps as will place the postal service in Eastern and Southern British
Colunibia on a basis more suited to the
requirements of ; the mining country
which, ! is. being rapidly developed,
which consequently demands speedier
and closer attention from the postoffice
department than old established districts in the east., And the associaiton
desire to particularly urge upon the
honorable the postmaster-general, the
necessity of providing a daily mail
service for all towns which have daily
communication by railway, steamers
or stages.
Mr. Ross seconded- by Mr. Smith
Curtis representing Grand Forks introduced a resolution in reference to
the ^official recognition of the Boundary country. After a brief discussion
the resolution passed as follows :
Whereas, the present Canadian and
mining journals have frequent, references to the marvelous richness of
the (mineral' resources of that part of
British Columbia popularly known as
the Boundary country :
And whereas, the general public outside; of the provinces have a vague or
erroneous impression as to its location,
since it is not indicated upon the provincial maps:
Therefore be it resolved that this
association tirg-e upon the provincial
government the desirability of designating the mineral region occupying
the Kettle River basin, as "The
Boundary District," and of having
this district- defined and named on all
maps of the province.
One of the most important questions
that came  before  the  conference was
that introduced  by  Mr. Buchanan of
Kaslo.    It related to the injustice done
the ; mining districts   in   the matter of
appropriations    and   sugg-ested   as   a
remedy the organization of  municipalities.    Mr. Buchanan who  is an excellent  speaker  delivered  an interesting
address full of facts and   figures.     He
said the chief end sought by the resolution was to secure the roads  that were
so very urgently needed in  every mining section in the province at the  present time.     A million dollars worth of
roads   were   needed   in the Kootenay
alone.    The present system of attempting   to   obtain   from   the    provincial
government  the  necessary  appropriations to construct roads to open up the
districts,   had   broken   down   so completely that he had no further use for
it.    In  his  own   immediate district of
Kaslo they had made out  a good  case
for the immediate expenditure of $75,-
000 for roads urgently needed  for mining purposes, and the grant given had
been  only $15,000.     The  government
receipts from all sources last year were
something over  $2,000,000, made up of

HERBERT <£ GUISE. -W  t ..>  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  Board of Trade Meets.  (Continued From Page 2.)  $561,000, borrowed $451,000 from general receipts, and the balance of $1,023,-  000  from taxation   in   one form or another.      West  Kootenay   had collected  and contributed to Victoria the sum  of  $293,000, and East Kootenay $58,000, or  a total of $350,000; yet for all  purposes  these districts only obtained back $11,-  000 for West Kootenay, and $21,00o for  East Kootenay,;a total of $132,000.   Indirectly  Kootenay   had   contributed   a  much larger sum than that mentioned,  and  when   the government was asked  '���.   for appropriationssuch   totally  inadequate  aid was given that he for.one  was  ready  to break the existing partnership   and   try   some other method.  He   was   not   wedded  to  a system of  municipalities,  but if : a better scheme  ; was suggested,  would gladly  support  :;; it.   The speaker went very  fully  into  the whole question,  and concluded an  eloquent  appeal   to   the " convention,  with  the suggestion that  this resolution   might   prove   a   solution   of the  difficulties heretofore encountered. (Applause.)  Mr, Ross  and  Col.   Topping ��� asked  = ��� ;   where!   the., proposed    municipalities  would obtain their revenue. , Hon. Mr.  Daly yer3r   warmly  congratulated  Mr.  Buchanan upon his excellent presentation  of  the question.     He  thought  a  scheme of taxation   for. revenue purposes could readily be worked out  and  .   the municipalities could   fairly ask the  government . for   a   fair   share of the  large  amount, contributed  every year  by them and,  for which  they  got so  i little   in   return.    He   condemned  the  present system as mostunfair and in-  '   adequate, and  instanced the grant of  $15,000 for Trail Creek and  the Boundary combined.    Mr. Harvey, Mr. Haig  ���    .   and other, speakers  all  agreed that a  great in j u stice was perperated  by the  present system,  and  the development  , of the province seriously; retarded, but  expressed some doubts as  to ,the working out; of the scheme in detail.  Mr. Ross said there was  no guarantee that municipalities would  make a  better distribution  than   the   government.    He would favor anj'  plan  that  would give a fairer share   of   the   appropriation   than  that  at  present- obtained.-'After Mr.,Curtis'had   spoken  in favor of'some new system- Mr. Daly,  moved a resolution which   carried,   re'-,  ���ferring  the   motion  offered  to  a committee composed of Messrs. BuchanBiij  Curtis,- Harvey, Ross  and  the-mover*  -;', to consider and report in the , morning.  ,'i   "This committee reported -Mr.  Buchan-  '���'   an'.s     tesoiu'tio'nf '; with  : some - slight  amendments   and   it   was   carried as  follow? ���.  Whereas, there is many parts of  " Kootenay, Yale and Cariboo urgent  need for the construction of wagon  . roads and trails in order that mining  properties now being rapidly developed can be reached by pack trains and  wagons so that machinery and supplies  can be readily and cheaply got into  the same:  And whereas, the immediate . expenditure of:.a large amount of money hi  the construction of said roads and  trails is an urgent necessity and would  prove a judicious and remunerative  ���  investment :'.-���  And whereas, the present scale of  appropriation for this purpose is not in  any way commensurate with the large  revenue yearly collected by the provincial government from the mining  ing districts of the province and is  barely sufficient for the repair of existing roads and trails, and is such as to  give no warrant for the hope that with  in any reasonable time the needs of  these districts, which are now imperative and pressing, will receive due  consideration at the hands of the  government:  And whereas, the system under  which the provincial grants for road  construction are expended is not such  as to secure results commensurate'vvith  the outlay, but is inferior in economy  and efficiency to a-system under which  . 'such work would have the benefit of  local supervision and control :  Therefore be it resolved, that it is  the sense of this convention that the  government should borrow on the  credit of the province a sum of money  sufficient to build and maintain the  roads and bridges which are at present  urgently needed throughout the mining districts in the province^ and here  after they should adopt a system under  which provincial grants for road construction in the mining districts of the  province will be more largely increased, the same to be commensurate with  the revenue derived therefrom and the  expenditure of the same to be made  under the supervision and control of  commissioners elected by the people,  and following the adoption of some  such new and adequate system that  provisions should be made by provinci  H| OUR MILL  j$r!

The    conference    endorsed   the  memorials  of  the  Rossland    and    Kaslo  boards of trade in reference to representation in the Dominion   parliament.  PROVINCIAL REPRESENTATION  Mr. Ross moved, seconded by Mr.  McMillian, that, in the opinion of the  associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  British Columbia the time has arrived  when the Boundary district should be  given seperate representation in the  provincial legislature, and the niemg  bers of the associated Boards heartily5  urge upon the British Columbia  government the desirability of giving  said district such representation without delay.    Carried..  SILVER-LEAD QUESTION.  The most interesting discussion of  the conference was that in connection  with the silver-lead question. There  were two stalwarts who discussed the  question from separate standpoints.  Mr. tUichanan made a powerful speech  in favor of urging upon the Commission negotiating a treaty with  United States, to secure the removal of  the U. S. duty of l]i cents per pound  on silver-lead ore going into United  States. His argument was directed  towards the interests of the silver-lead  miner. On the other hand Mr. W. H.  Aldrige manager of the Trail smelter  made a strong- plea for the encouragement of the lead smelting industry.  He stated that under exisiing tariff  duties the Canadian smelters were shut  out of the U. S. market and denied the  Canadian markets. Mr. Buchanan's  (Continued on Page 5.)  ACT,    1896.

(j  ThU rapid development of the-min  eral resources and, consequent rapid'  ���'��� .'growth of towns in the immediate  vicinity of .the mines, . brings,, new  duties' and responsibilities upon the  municipal:fathers in the metropolis of  the district. It is of the, utmost im-  . portance in the public interest and for  the safety of the- citizens t!: it those  new duties should -be emnretically  undertaken and tho responsibilities  promptly fatk-tl. The rapid growth of  .the town of Phoenix must be viewed  n-ith concern by residents of the city;  ��� not .because of the town itself, for if  Greeuwoori is to be a city of any importance, v;:��; big bodies in the different mini:., caiiips must be developed;  This dew. vinc-nl means the employment of men-and men mean small  towns in eacli camp. Every one of  these towns will bring its quota of  trade to the metropolis; consequently  Greenwood 'welcomes their existence  and rapid growth.  The danger to which we refer lies in,  the fact that Phoenix is being built  along Twin creek. Hotels and restaurants have their back yards drained by  this stream and every sort of contamination finds its way into the water.  It would be idle to suppose that Twin  creek water could remain pure under  those conditions. The danger increases  as the new town grows. It is a danger  that was not unexpected from the very  first. Twin creek was never intended  as a suitable source of water for do-  .. rnestic purposes. No better source for  fire protection could be secured.  Before residents are allowed to make  connections with the mains, the city  council should seriously consider the  situation. To keep Twin creek pure  is an impossibility. The town must  look to Boundary creek for a supply  of pure water. ,  There is nothing more detrimental  to the interests of a city than an epi-  demtc and nothing,more likely to bring  an epidemic than the use of impure  water. Impure water will cost the city  more than will a pumping station on  Boundary creek.  to estimate the advantage gained by  the good will of Rossland. One has only  to examine the hotel registers to become  convinced that Rossland is the mecca  of the very men that are needed to  build up this Boundary Creek' country.  Men of capital and mining experienc,  make Rossland their home during their  sojourn in the province. It is the centre from which the3' operate and the  good wishes of the people with whom  they come into daily contact must have  their influence.  We feel sure that Greenwood will  reciprocate this feeling in every way.  and when the opportunities present  themselves, the people here will not be  slow in taking advantage of them to  assist her friendly sister. There is no  reason why one should not assist the  other to become two of the largest cities  in tho province; one the metropolis of  Kootenay and the other the metropolis  of Boundary Creek.

THE RECENT FIRE.  If the recent fire was the w-ork of  nn incendiary and strong suspicion  points in that direction, every effort  should be made to bring. the culprit  that punishment lie so richly merits.  If there be a miscreant who would deliberate^' start a (ire in the centre of  the business portion of the.city there is  no punishment too severe for him.  It is quite possible, notwithstanding  the rumors, that the fire was accidental.  There is this to be said about the matter, however, that there is altogether  too much carelessness shovvn by residents of the city. One has to visit only  the backs of the business blocks in the  city to find shavings, papers and every  kind of ignitibles. Basements are left  unboarded so that drunks and tramps  can wander underneath buildings. We  fear ttiat the authorities are not stringent enough about such matters. Every  business man should be forced to keep  his place in such a condition that a fire  would be almost an impossibility . unless by design.  All honor to the brave fire boys for  their good work with the limited apparatus at their disposal; but the great  desideratum is such a condition that  fires are not likely to occur.  Wm. Sprott.  4��  POOR ADVERTISING.  A business man can waste good  money by injudicious advertising ; so  can a city. It is idle to suppose that  tha city is being well advertised, if  the city council succumbs to the blandishment of ever3' fakir who is anxious  to get his fingers on some of the city  funds. Every city should advertise,  but it should advertise judiciously.  It should see that a quid pro quo is received for every dollar expended. The  San Francisco Wave secured S200 from  the city. We would not give $25 for  service given in return. For $200 the  Wave published execrable photographs  of good looking Greenwood citizens  and certain articles regarding the city  and district. Of these articles two are  particularly well written���indeed they  are so well written that papers having  much larger circulations than the  Wave and which are in closer touch  w'ith mining men and capitalists would  be glad to pay the authors for them.  The position is a simple one. An  obscure 'Frisco publication sends an  agent to Boundary Creek. He induces  well known residents to write free of  charge articles regarding the city and  district. He holds up the city for 3200  to secure the publication of those  articles. The Toronto Globe or World  or Montreal Star or any other reputable  eastern journal would be glad lo publish the same articles, and instead of  holding up the city council would pay  the authors for writing them.  For S200 a lot of effective and legitimate advertising could be secured. If  the city council have any more money  to expend in advertising, would it not  be well to refer the matter to those who  know something about the busines?

Boards of Trade Meet.  (Continued From Page 3.)  resolution if carried into effect would  kill the Canadian smelters and place  ,. the lead ore producers at the mercy of  the smelting- trust of United States.  Finally after a leng-thy discussion the  following- resolution was offered in  lieu of Mr. Buchanan's and accepted  by the meeting : .  Resolved, that it is the sense of this  association that the larg-est possible  amount of relief would be given to  the lead mining industry in British  Columbia by a reciprocal arrangement  with the United States by which lead  in bullion and in ore would be admitted free of duty into the market of the  United States and that we shall continue to urge upon the Canadian commissioners to the international conference the paramount importance of  using every effort to secure such an  arrangement.  That pending the conclusion of such,  a treaty or in event of the final failure  of negotiations for such a, treaty it is  the sense of this association :  (a);- That lead smelted in Canada and  refined .abroad should , be readmitted  duty.free into Cauada:  (b). That import duties upon manufactured lead coming into Canada  should be increased to a parity with  the ��� duties levied upon other lines of  manufactured goods.  .'������ (c). That the bounties'alreadyearned  , ;by Canadian smelters under the act for  the encburatement of silver-lead smelting-,1 1895, should be immediately adjusted and paid.    .  ELECTION OF OFFICERS.  The conference decided to meeting  at Nelson on the first Thursday of  August next year. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year:  President, J.-S. C. Fraser; vice presidents, Roderick Robertson and G. O.  Buchanan; executive, Duncan Ross, J.  A. Harvey, T. M. Daly, E. S. Topping,  T. L. Haig and Smith Curtis; H. W.  C. Jackson, secretary-treasurer.  MANY SUBJECTS.  Many subjects were referred to a  committee to draft resolutions covering- the same. The committee reported  Friday evening.  The reso.utions which were endorsed  by the conference, were as follows: '  "Whereas, owing to the rapid development of the mineral resources towns  and cities have sprung-into prominence tion.  in the Kootenay and Yale districts,and  whereas the provincial government has  failed to afford those towns and cities  such facilities for the transaction of  ��� public and court business as the importance of their mining, legal and  general, business demands.. Be .it resolved that in the opinion of this association special effort should be made  . by the provincial government in providing- such government offices and  officers and sittings of the supreme and  county county courts as are required to  expedite the mining-and leg-al business  of the cities referred to, and the  mineral regions tributary thereto.  .-', Whereas, the population and wealth  of the districts of Yale and Kootenay  have- been advancing- by leaps and  bounds in the past few years and  ' whereas several towns have in that  time developed into important residential centers, and others are constantly being added to the list, and  whereas the lack of such educational  facilitiesas is to be obtained in places  of similar size in the older settled sections of the Dominion or in the adjoining state of Washington, greatly militate against the securing or retaining  the better class of residents for sitch  towns.  Therefore be it resolved, that at least  one high school should be provided for  the district, to be located at the point  which can show the most qualified  pupils; and  Be it further resolved, That the provincial government should hereafter  provide appropriations for the maintenance of the common schools of these  districts commensurate with the constantly increasing school population.  Whereas, great inconventence is experienced in determining the location  of occupied lands in the outlying districts of the province;  Be it resolved, That the government  be requested to furnish a map of each  district, showing the position of such  lands. A copy of said map to be on  exhibition in the government office of  each district and to be kept corrected  up to date.  Whereas, the provincial government  aids in the construction and maintenance of roads to mines whenever such  roads are situated outside the incorporated limits of any city or town.  Therefore be it resolved, That wherever mines paying . royalty on output  are situated within the incorporated  limits of any city 20 per cent, of said  royalty  should   be  paid  over   to such  municipality by the provincial g-overn-  ment to aid in the construction and  maintenance of roads to mines within  the limits of such municipality.  Whereas, while this association is  desirous of recording its appreciation  of the government's action in locating-  and erecting a land registry office at  Nelson. This association would at the  same time urge upon the government  the necessity of extending this system  of erectingi local registry offices to  other districts in order to facilitate the  large increase of transfers of property.  The want of such facilities at present  greatly retarding the transaction of  business in the outlying districts of  Kootenay and Yale.      ,  That it is the opinion of this association that the government establish a  school of mines at some central point  in the district of Kootenay or Yale.  Whereas, it having been brought to  the notice of this association that  owners of mineral claims have of late  been compelled on the demand of the,  government inspector to pay a royalty  upon all timber cut upon crown g-ranted  mineral claims, whether such timber  has been used for mining purposes or  otherwise.  Be it resolved, That in the opinion  of this association such action upon the  part of the government is an infringement upon the rights granted to the  owners of mineral claims under the  provisions of the mineral act, and is  calculated to work a hardship upon  companies or individuals developing  mineral ciaims, and the same should  be discontinued. ,  Whereas, the question has lately been  raised as to the absolute right of holders of mineral claims to purchase the  surf ace rights of such claims.  Be it resolved, That in the opinion  of the association that the right of the  holder of a mineral claim to purchase  the surface rights thereof shall become  absolnte upon his, obtaining a crown  grant thereof.        c-  Whereas, it is the opinion of this  board that very serious harm has resulted in the past from the frequency  with which at short notice the mining  laws of this province have been subjected to far reaching changes by the  provincial legislature.  Be it therefore resolved, That this-  board respectfully suggest to the government whenever any material  changes in the mineral laws are contemplated to give early notice of their  intention so to do, in such manner that  those portions of the province vitally  interested in mining may have time to  consider and make due representations  concerning- the proposed changes before the same are brought before the  local legislature.  Whereas, the association regrets that  the minister of railways has been unable to secure the passage of such legislation in reference to the location of  stations along the lines of g-overnment  aided railways in  course of construe-  HUNTER-KENDRICK GO.

Be it therefore resolved, That in the  opinion of this association the subject  of the location of stations by railway  companies along then lines of railway  is one that should receive the immediate  and earnest attention of the ' minister  of railways and calls , for early legislation.  Whereas,, it is extremely desirable  that this province be properly represented in London. And, whereas, the  grant for this purpose is inadequate.  Therefore be it  Resolved, That this convention respectfully suggest that the provincial  government should immediately place  the position of the British Columbia  agency in London on a more satisfactory footing by appropriating- an annual sum of not less than $25,000 for  this purpose, by appointing- a properly  paid agent-general and by securing an  office in the business heart of London.  A special committee was appointed  to memoralize the government upon  the eight-hour law.  THE SMOKING CONCERT.  On Thursday evening the citizens of  Rossland tendered the visiting delegates a complimentary smoker. Mayor  Goodeve, in a neat speech, welcomed  the visitors to the city. He pointed  out the importance of the conference,  inasmuch as every board of trade in  Kootenay and Boundary Creek were  represented. There was an excellent  programme rendered by the Rossland  people. Short speeches were delivered  dy the delegates.  THKTRAir, SMELTER.  On Saturday the delegates visited  the leading mines, accompanied by  members of the Rossland board of  trade. In the afternoon they were the  guests of Mr. W. H. Aldridge' at the  Trail smelter. Mr. Aldridge is conj  tinually enlarging the plant. The  writer had a lengthy conversation  with him relative to the treatment of  Boundary Creek ores. Mr. Aldridge  was quite frank regarding the intentions of the Canadian Pacific Railway  company. They had their experts in  the district and were pretty thoroughly  acquainted with the value and character of Boundary Creek ore. Some  ores they were sure could pay all  charg-es and leave a big profit. But  there were large bodies of low grade  ore that they were not so sure of. Now  the Canadian Pacific Railway company had invested a large sum in  building a road into Boundary Creek.  To secure a return on the money invested a large amount of ore must be  transported. So far as the smelter is  concerned, its policy will be to treat  Boundary ores at a sufficiently low  rate to make profitable the mining of  low grade ores. Ores will be treated  at Trail first until a more accurate  knowledge is attained when a smelter  will be built in the heart of Boundary  district, most probably on Boundary  creek.  The big smelting works running full  blast are well worth a visit and the  visitors were deeply interested in Mr.  Aldridge's lucid explanations regarding the treatment ore.  VICTORIA, B.

RICH MYERS GREER.  DESCRIBED BY PERCY CODERNATH  Big Ledges of Rich Ore Being Developed-Can-  adian Capital Largely Interested in Some  of the Leading Properties.  "There is every indication that the  Myers Creek Mining- district will have  as big- a boom as Republic," said Percy  P. Godernath,.whO returned here the  first of the week, after a three weeks  visit to the district. "Already Canadian capital is interested there, and  when I say Canadian capital, I mean  Greenwood too. It was a Greenwood  mining- brokerag-e firm, Messrs. Mc-  Entire& McDonnell, who secured the  . Review mine on Percy mountain. - I  understand that eastern Canadian-, investors are interested in the deal also;  and some Jays back Prof. Montgomery,  the well known mining- expert,, examined the property and expressed  himself highly satisfied with the result  ���no doubt/he examined the mine for.  eastern parties. . ", ,'..  "The Review is developed by a 250-  foot tunnel on-the ledg-e,-'following- the  trend of the'footwallV Wlien in this  distance a crosscut was run from the  footwall to the hanging wall and the  vein measures, at this point 46 feet of  ore. The tunnel is now. being extended-  into the hill. The management also  propose sinking a 100-foot winze and  opening up anpther level. The ore .is  a bluish-white -qtiartz,' and -I was informed that the whole of the ore body  would average. something above $15  per ton.  "With 46 feet of a vein the Review  mine leadsthe,cj.mp.,, Two miles west  of the Review - is * another, 'promising  mine, th�� War Eagle. This is at present a ���'sinking-"'proposition'.'.. The shaft  Is down 70 feet. For the first 55 feet it  passed through a -broken,..-up, quartz,  formation when, it' encountered the  hanging wall of the ledge and for- the  past 15 feet the shaft has been sunk  through a curly-blew quartz and the  footwall isyet'to be reached: Two'  samplings of this ��� ore body gave 'an  average value of $16.50 per ton in gold  and silver.  "Adjoining' and paralleling this  promising mine is.the Wisconsin group  that has some immense showings. The  War Eagle shaft is about.75 "feet���_ from  the west side line of the Wisconsin and  the strike of'itheir vein would indicate  that the .apex of the War Eagle ledge  will be found on the Wisconsin ground.  The development-so far-has only been  assessment-work.' Prom a sample of  the ore taken out of a 10-foot shaft on  the center quartz lead of the Wisconsin, F. N. Cummings,. the Greenwood  engineer,-obtained- $41 in gold and-  silver, and this only at such a slight  depth. I mention this as one of a number of instances coming under my own  notice of claims showing well defined  ledges that 'stand up' when sampled.  The Wisconsin group is being acquired  by a company in .which, a number.of  Greenwood parties have become interested. - , '���'��������� ���-���;  ������  "On Percy :mb'urifain. which by the  way, the boys were kind enough to  name after myself, there are a number  of properties' undergoing development.  Stewart & Knowles have interested  Spokane capital in the development of  several claims. The Strawberry,'owned  by Smith & Newcomb has ; also a good  quartz showing-..  ��� .-.-���������-���   -������������ -  "On the east side of Myers creek, 2}A  miles south of Chesaw, is the mill,of  the Crystal Butte mine. The mill is  rapidly nearing completion and will be  crushing ore before the first of next  mouth. Also on this side of the creek  but three miles north from the mill is  the King Solomon mine. The original  development .of the mine consisted of  an incline shaft sunk on a small  stringer of quartz, about three inches  in width. .The shaft followed . it down  about 35 feet, in which distance it  had widened out to 2yi feet.' The management then let a contract for a. 200-  foot tunnel that will, when completed,  encounter the vein at a- depth of 130  feet. At the time of my visit to the  mine the tunnel had been diiven in a  distance of 150. feet.  "It would require much more space  to mention many other promising prospects that I, visited. There are numbers of people going itito that district  and many small deals have been con-  sumated. In the heart of the Myers  Creek valley is the new and bustling  town of Chesaw. It is prettily situated  on the right bank, of the creek. The  Chesaw Improvement company owns  the land and has had same surveyed  out in blocks and lots. J.  well known here, is the  townsite agent. With so  many promising properties surrounding Chesaw, I have ever belief that it  will in the course of a few-years be as  big a camp as Republic. At the present  time, with the amount of work done  on the claims, it beats Republic at an  equal stage of the game. Of course  Republic has ' produced some sensational mines���Myers creek may produce , in time just as many. It is a  young camp, only slightly developed  but of great promise. The next big  boom will in all probability be in the  Myers Creek mining district.   ������  ���'The camp is easy of access, from  Greenwood by .wagon road it is 28  miles. From Republic by trail it is 35  miles. It is, a bunch grass country  over which a buckboard can be driven  anywhere. Old timers say it greatly  resembles Cripple Creek and with development it, may .turn out to be the  case both in appearance and in production." ,'     '"  Messrs.- Holbrook, Keen & Co. have  been appointed Greenwood agents for  the Chesaw townsite. The lots were  placed on the market on Tuesday morning and before noon 32 lots were,sold.  Chesaw, is growing- rapidly. Last week,  contracts were let for the erection of  26 new buildings. Two Indian ranches  near: the town were. rehted by enter-  prising ranchers last week.  MINERAL ACT, 1896.  Certificate , of   improvements.  NOTICE.
