The, complimentary banquet tendered by the citizens to the C. P. R.  excursionists last night,' at Barrett's  hall, was one of the most elaborate  affairs ever attempted in the southern  portion of the province.

The Clarendon hotel had  charge of the banquet and the bill of  fare and service reflected great credit  upon the management.

The reading evoked tremendous uproar.    After  THE ADDRESS FROM  THE BOARD OF TRADE.  The members of the Board of Trade of the City of Greenwood desire on this occasion to officially extend to you, our visitors a heart}- 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 Railway  Company as to iuvice the representative business men of the province here under their  auspices; and by yon 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 conceive 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  distance from their own homes indicates the breadth of their sympathies, and their  commercial enterprise and foresight. It is sincerely to be hoped that the impressions  carried awa}- by you will not only be kindly and favorable, but that their effect will be  to lessen the space that geography has created, cement the interests of the .various people in 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 man you are well qualified to judge  of the situation for yourselves, and the verdict we leave in your hands. Greenwood is  wide open for your inspection.  Regarding bur mines and mineral resources, the 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 province you will not be slow to appreciate your opportunities.  In this connection, of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company who brought you  here and to whose enterprise much of our progress aud 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 eminent benefit to the district the construction of the Columbia and Western railway, 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 the returns in traffic have far exceeded the 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 Greeu-  w-ood desire to see the company for all time to come well rewarded for the expenditure  of jS,000,000 thus entailed. No other fact, we may be permitted to observe, is more significant of what is contained in the Boundary district than that such an undertaking  should have been assumed, largely on faith, by a corporation, the management of  which is noted for great business capacity and wise foresight.  It is understood that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company is making arrangements to extend the line of the Columbia and 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 throughout the province, will extend to the project your utmost moral support  and political in flu.micu.  In conclusion the desire is expressed that the present will be but one of many  visits by you individually and collectively to this city and the right hand of welcome  tonight is indefinitely extended. We say: "Come again; come often. Come and do  business with us if you can, but come."  quet in itself was a decided success.  It was generally understood that about  120 visitors would be in attendance,  but on the arrival of the special the  number was found to be over 200 and  the consequence was at the last moment  room could not be found for all. .Those  however who were present have been  unstinting in their praise of the efforts  made by the citizens to entertain them.  Barrett's hall was lavishly decorated  with streamers of red, white and blue  covering     the      ceilings   and   walls.  the length of the hall and these were I it had subsided the toastmaster called  filled to unconifortableness. At the head | upon Secretary Gosnell, of the Board  of one of the tables sat Mayor Hardy, ! of Trade to read an address of welcome  who was toast master of the evening, to the excursionists.

It was a happy  thought and the chorus was enthusias  tically joined in by the whole company.  plied. He spoke of the good-fellowship  between the people of the two countries  and expressed the hope that the same  might grow stronger as the years rolled by. F. W. Peters responded to the  toast "Our Guests". He expressed him  self as surprised in being called  upon  for this particular toast, as for the last  54 years; he said, he  had been  in  the  habit of replying to the toast "C. P. R".  He compared the growth of the southern portion of the province within   the  past three'years, not only in the opening up of the  mines,   but  in   the construction of railroads.    At that  time  there was only 28 miles of railway,  today there are 584, and this too outside  of the magnificant lines of steamboats  plying on  the lakes.      He  asked his  friends from the coast if they  realized  what a mining camp really was. what  wealth was really capable of being produced from the mines  in  comparison  with any other enterprise?   He spoke  of the opening of the Crows Nest Pass  branch a year ago to the day of the excursion over the Columbia and Western  railroad.   His witty reference  to the  Rev. Mr. Frew, as the spiritual adviser  of   the   excursionists,   brought    forth  much laughter.   He concluded in warm  words of praise for the  unstinted  hospitality shown by the citizens of Greenwood  in  the; entertainment   of   their  guests.  Allen Cameron, general freight  agent, Vancouver and J. G. Sulivan,  assistant superintendent of the Columbia & Western branch, Trail, responded to the toast "Canadian Pacific Railway." Mr Cameron said that his company had after great difficulties, accomplished the building of a branch  into the Boundary creek district and  while they had been urged to continue  the line on to the coast, he would remind the company that its construction  was no child's play. He admitted that  the line would be of material benefit to  the country through which it passed,  to the citizens and business,men of the  coast and the Boundary, and to the C.  P. R., but unlike in Great Britain,  where the aim is to build air-lines, it  would be a physical impossibility in  this case on account of the ranges of  mountains to put an air line in, on the  ideas that have been expressed for .  some years. J. G. Sullivan followed  with a few remarks on the work of con  struction of railroads.  W. A. Ward, president, Victoria  Board of Trade; L. G. McQuade, Victoria; Fred Buscombe, Vancouver; John  Furguson McCrae, Rossland. and T. J.  Trapp, New Westminster spoke to the  toast "Board of Trade". Bach contributed words of wit and wisdom to  the entertainment. The Rossland gentleman's remark that it was the Boards  of Trade of the Kootenays and the  Coast that compelled the building of  branches by the C. P. R. inti- the  Boundary Creek district envoked considerable amusement and applause.  Lack of space only prevents a full report of the speeches made by these  gentlemen, as also those made to the  toasts that followed.  EXCURSION  NOTES.  W. Roslington, of Vancouver, a director of the B. C. Assay and Chemical  Supply Co., Ltd., was a caller at the  Times office. He expressed himself  well pleased-with the trip,and was complimentary about the business outlook  for Greenwood, so much so, that he  said his firm would in the near future  start a branch in this city. His company recently opened up a branch in  Nelson, B. C, in charge of T. A. Mills,  where they carry a full line of assay-  ers' materials, mining and milling  .supplies.  Major O. M.

This one succeeded in disabling the  train and many of the passengers  walked over the divide to Rossland.  They reached there at 7 o'clock in the  morning, or nineteen houes after leav  ing Greenwood. The walk killed the  resolutions and almost killed the "reso-  lutioners."  A second accident occurred on the  railway on Saturday. An east bound  freight was making the switchbacks  over Bulldog tunnel when the brakes  refused to work and the train started  at a terrific rate down the grade. It  soon jumped the track and was a total  wreck. A tramp stealing a ride was  killed, while a brakeman, whose name  has not been ascertained,was so severely injured that he has since died.  reen -gtgar Store W^%  V   . >>.Tlic Only Direct Importers in the Boundary Country.

Railway Last  Week���Two Men Killed.  Last week what might have been a  fearful accident occurred on the C. &  W. as the passenger train bound east  was rounding the grade above Arrow  lake. A huge landslide came down in  front of the engine, derailing it. The  engineer at once reversed the engine  and the train stopped just as the engine was ready to plunge over the  precipice 600 feet in height. The engineer jumped and was the only one  injured. He was badly shaken up.  Several Greeuwoodites were on the  train, among them being ClivePringle,  A. Fisher and J. Poupore. Mr. Fisher  states that Mr. Pringle was badly  scared and at once committed himself  to deal mercifully with litigants he  would oppose should Providence ���provide an earthly future, while Mr.  Pringle is equally strong in his assertion that the Boundary Creek lumberman was voluntarily broken for the  nonce and the big lumbermen promised  to furnish building material at cost.  lhj.se good resolutions which meant  much  for Bund.ary  Creek, were seem-,  A Branch of the International Typographical  Union is Now Established in the Boundary.  On Saturday evening last about  twenty printers of the district met in  the parlors of the Yale hotel, Grand  Forks, and organized a branch of the  International Typographical Union.  F. H. McCarter, sr., was elected temporary chairman, when the following  officers were elected temporarily to act  until the I. T. U. charter arrived:  President, J. W. Grier; vice president,  J. D. Hendrix; secretary, W. H. Pierre;  treasurer, W. J. Harber; executive  committee, Fred Grant, G. Earl McCarter, L. Keefe, E. M. Grace and J.  W. Ellis.  Previous to the organization, F. H.  McCarter, business manager of the  Grand Forks Miner, banquetted the  printers in the Yale hotel.  Every competent printer working in  the district has either joined or signified his intention to join the new union.  The next meeting of the union will  be held in Greenwood, subject to the  call of the secretary.

A strong company is being formed in  this city to operate the Mountain View  claim it Summit camp, adjoining the  B. C, which was recently bonded by  John Dorsey from Louis Shiefle and  Pat Lyons.  Messrs. Welch and Stewart, the  well-known railway contractors, have  become iuterested in the property and  are taking hold of it with a view to its  thorough and immediate exploitation.  Six men have been at work running  two shifts , in a tunnel on the property  ever since the bend was given and  they have opened up a splendid body of  high grade ore. The exact width of  the lead has not yet been demonstrated  but it'is reported that the entire tunnel  is in ore with no signs of walls.  The ore now being taken out is some  of the finest found in that vicinity and  consists of a-good friable quartz" heavily impregnated with copper and iron  and giving most satisfactory gold assays.. Another character of ore found  in the property is a honey combed  quartz, very much rusted from oxidation of the. iron in it and carrying a  good pei'cehtage' of copper in a sulphide  form. ���'  -,  The mere location of this property is  enough to make it fairly valuable, even  if no large ore bodyhad been 'found  and this combined with the. excellent  showing being made, makes the Mountain View a property which attracts  most fovorable attention from every  mining man who visits it and marks it  as one of the best in the great Summit  camp. - -  It is understood that sufficient money  is being put into the treasury of the  new company to insure the taking up  of the bond and the full -and- complete  development of the property.���Grand  Forks Miner..,    ' ."',..

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.

The number  of qualified   voters  in  the  city  of  Greenwood,  published  in  last week's issue of the Times, was not  correct, because the number of householders  who   registered  was , not   included.    The number 381 included only  the qualified property owners  and  the  license holders.    Outside of these about  fifty householders registered, bringing  the total up to 430  votes.    In   addition  to these there are  many  householders  who failed to avail   themselves of the  privileges of the Municipal Elections  Act,   and   are    consequently   disfran-  . chised so far as   municipal  affairs are  concerned.    We   refer to this subject  because we desire again to  call attention to the gross injustice this  district  is   laboring   under  in   the matter of  proper representation in the provincial  legislature.     It   must   be apparent to  , everyone that the district of East'Yale  is   under represented from   the standpoint of population   and   area.    At the  last  general  election   there were 1,229  electors registered in  East Yale 'with  only one representative.   In, the Rossland riding there were 1,399 electors  with one member.    Let us figure on a  ' constituency out of these two, embracing Camp McKinney on the  west and  Christina lake on the east.   Greenwood  has   nearly  500  voters,  Grand  Forks  the same, and the  mining and agricultural  sections, including Phoenix and  Greenwood camps,   can  easily aggregate another 500 voters.     These would  make a constituency with  about 1,500  qualified   voters,   and    still   leave   as  many today in Rossland and East Yale  electoral districts as there were at the  time of the last  election.   How then  can a government pledged to wipe out  inequalities in representation, pledged  to give justice to those sections  which  suffered because  of  the insidious distinctions   made   by   the late  govern-  ' ment,   neglect    to  avail itself of the  earliest opportunity to grant the relief  asked   for?    How  can  a   government  committed to such a course refuse  to  take   action   when   Boundary   Creek,  practically without representation, has  today 1,500 voters?    Cariboo with 712  voters has two members,North Victoria  with 417 voters has one member, while  Southeast  Kootenay  with 436   voters  has  one member,  West Yale with 533  voters has one  member, -Eillooet with  286 voters has one member, Esquimau  with 522 voters has two members, West  Lillooet  with 235 voters has one member.    This   list   might   be   continued.  We  are quite  prepared to admit that  there has been an increase in the number of voters in the districts mentioned  but not sufficient to destroy  the force  of our argument.    Boundary Creek revolted against the Turner government  because of its iniquitous berrymander.  Boundary  Creek'is  prepared to speak  again unless the Turner government's  successors  are  prepared  to  carry out  their pre-election pledges.  The residents of the district can  make a still stronger case by registering. Already several loyal workers  are busy enrolling names on the list,  but much work remains to be done.  We have not heard that Grand Porks,  Columbia and other centers have made  an organized effort to register their  qualified voters. They should lose  no time in doing so.  scarcely provide a living for one man;  yet since the running of regular trains  the mail for Greenwood and that distributed here for outside points would  require the time of four, or five men to  handle promptly'. The men at the  postdffice do the best they can. The  fault lies'not with them but with the  system. At Phoenix the situation is  even worse. The postmaster there  handles all the business of an office for  1,000 men for the munificent salary of  S20 a year, or a little over five cents a  day. The department cannot or will  not realize that conditions are different  in this province from old. established  centers in the east. It would be good  policy to give the inspectors who are  on the ground and who understand the  situation greater latitude.  THE C. P. R. EXCURSION.  At the time of writing the C.  P. R.  excursionists     are    appreciating   the  beauties of McRae pass and are hurrying   towards    the , Boundary , district.  They are entering a section which few  of them have  seen  and still fewer appreciated' its   boundless   possibilities.  They   will   visit   a   district  which   is  recognized as one of the  most important, not only  in the province, but on  the continent���a district that will furnish employment to thousands of men  who will   in  turn  purchase an almost  incalculable amount of supplies.   It is  a district that will shortly be a wealth  producing���a   supply   consuming  district���such a district that is well worthy  the careful, attention   and  consideration   of  the  business   man.    The excursionists will receive  a hearty welcome.   They deserve it.    They are a  lot of shrewd,   enterprising men who  can do much for Boundary Creek.   The  greatest  benefit  can  be  derived from  securing closer relations   between   the  commercial  and  the mining interests  of the province.

Shouldlife not'be extinct!  the first step is  to , make it so,  after  which  One Hundred and Fifty Cattle to be Slaughtered Daily. Pens for Eight Hundred Hogs and  Two Thousand Sheep���A Huge Enterprise.  The name of P. Burns & Co., is  familar to every one in the Kootenay  and Boundary districts. .This firm  has what is practically a inonoply of  the meat industry not because of any  of these peculiar actions which are responsible for trusts in other places but  because their, enterprise has made competition unprofitable. P. Burns & Co.,  have taken advantage of every opportunity to supply the wants of their  customers upon such- terms that very  little dissatisfaciion is heard and less  clamoring for rival concerns. Their  latest enterprise is the erection of a  mammoth abattoir at Calgary, a description of which is published in the  Calgary-Herald and which will be read  with interest.   The Herald says :  " The commencement of operations  this week at P. Burns & Company's  abattoir.means the passing of yet another milestone on the road to Calgary's  full measure of prosperity. Many as  are the successful industries of which  the city can boast, there is none which  seems more adapted to the surrounding district or more at home in Alberta,  so to speak, than the enterprise which  Messrs. Burns & company have recently added to their  ALREADY ENORMOUS  BUSINESS  The slaughtering of cattle, sheep and  hogs before shipment,, has been found  much more economical and much more  convenient than the shipping of live  stock in crowded cars for long distances with its unavoidable expense,  and inconvenience and will in the  future be "generally adopted. The  establishment of an abattoir in Calgary was found by Mr. Burns to be  necessary for the success of his business, and like a progressive business  man he at once set to work to provide the necessary machinery, with  the result that there exists in Calgary today an abattoir of/which  any city  MIGHT   WELL   BE    PROUD  Some time this summer, the firm purchased the buildings and some 10 acres  of land formerly owned by the Canadian Land & Ranche company, and at  once set to work to construct and equip  a large cold store capable of holding  no less than 4,000 carcases of dressed  beef. To the original buildings .which  were 80x50, have been added a new  building 300x70 and a power house  50x60. Earge pig pens capable of accommodating 2,000 hogs have also-been  constructed, as well as commodious  sheep pens, - stables, and other out  offices,   the  whole covering; an area of  NO LESS THAN FIFTEEN  ACRES  The whole of the  cold  storage  buildings have  been  erected under the immediate personal supervision of H. N.  Molloy of St. Paul, who  is  admittedly  one of the.  most capable  cold storage  experts in Western America.and  who  has  already  constructed   large works  in   Canada,   including  the  Gordon   &  Ironside   works at  Winnipeg  and  the  cold storage  warehouses  at Port Arthur and  Fort William.    In his work  at Calgary Mr. Molloy has  fully justified his  reputation  and his directions  have been  carried  out to  the   letter.  The walls  of  the  building,   which   is  put up under the Molloy Cold Wave  System, are two feet in thickness, aud  the whole structure  is metal covered.  Inside  there  are overhead  tracks   on  which   to  run  the carcasses.    It is interesting   to know that these  tracks,  it laid  in a straight line, would extend  nearly  TWO  MILES  IN  LENGTH  In the abattoir itself, every arrangement is as near perfection as possible.  A Herald representative was fortunate  enough to be present on Monday afternoon when the first bunch of animals  was slaughtered. Geo. Eane striking  the first blow with deadly effect. The  sight was one, which though somewhat  gory at times, could not but make one  f eelj that Alberta had at least secured  an industry of practically illimitable  scope. In a corral adjoining- the abattoir were a bunch of prime steers,  which stood around blinking lazily  and altogether unconscious of the fact  that in a few short moments they would  form a half section in  AN ARMY  OF DRESSED  BEEF  At an appointed signal five of the  great beasts were driven from the  corral through a chute until each one  found himself hoisted in a pen just  large enough to prevent him getting  out. A single blow from a heavy  hammer right in the centre of the fo-r  head causes the animal to fall���in ]  most cases���dead.    The swing doors at  ,    THE NIMBLE KNIFE  of the butcher is brought'into operation and almost before one can realize it the huge body is skinned, the  head, feet and " innards " removed,  and the carcass is hoisted on the  block where the process of skinning is  completed. To every one of the men  employed in the abattoir is assigned  his own particular duty. Heads, hearts,  hides, hoofs, livers and tongues���each  has its own proper attendant, and its  own particular place in the great  warehouse. There is no confusion,  yet every step is taken so rapidly that  one cannot help but feel surprised. As  soon as the dressing, is "completed the  ground is cleared again and five' other  carcasses fall in,ready for the butcher's  knife. On Monday afternoon some (30  head were disposed of in less than two  hours. When things have settled  down, and the men become more-accustomed to their work, Messrs. Burns  & company propose to ���'���%���.-'���'  SLAUGHTER ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY  per day. Every possible precaution is  taken to ensure cleanliness .and economy. Chutes are provided for the disposal of the offal and < a plentiful supply of fresh water���raised on the  premises���is always on hand so that as  was well said by a visitor, " carnage  cuts no figure."  Leaving the carcasses of prime beef  to cool off. the Herald visited the hog,  pens which are constructed in accordance ' with the most modern ideas regarding comfort and sanitation.' The  result is to make the porker a far less  objectionable animal than he usually  appears to be. There are at present  in the pens  . " "ETgIiT^HUNDRED HOGS  on which a sentence of death has already been passed. These hogs, have  been imported from Ontario, it being  as yet impossible to secure anything  like the number the firm needs, in  Alberta. ��� The Herald has more thari  once pointed out the fact that the  farmers of Northern Alberta can, make  good money by raising hogs. They  have now a market right at home, and  the farmer who does not take advantage of it has only himself to blame.  The C. P. R. has done its share to  foster this industry by the introduction  of well bred boars and it is to be hoped  that in a short time, it will not be  necessary to import store hogs from  the east. The farmers of Alberta can  supply them without much trouble and  if they consult their own interests they  will lose no time in doing so.  The same remarks are equally applicable 'to the sheep market. The  local, product is altogether inadequate,  and Mr. Burns is  COMPELLED TO IMPORT MUTTON      ',������  from Australia to supply the needs of  his customers. It seems anomalous  that this should be so, but it is never-  the less a fact.  What the ultimate result of this  newest indnstry may be to Calgary,  it is difficult to say. Looking at it  as it stands today it means a great  deal not only for Calgary but for Alberta. The investment in our city of  the large capital necessary for such  an undertaking ; the home market for  our beef, hogs and sheep, and the employment of from 40 to 50 men, mean a  whole lot. There are today on the  track adjoining the abattoir 12 refrigerated meet hook cars awaiting their  loads of dressed beef. The firm intend to slaughter 150 head of cattle  daily beside all the hogs and sheep  they can secure at home. It is not unreasonable to predict that in the near  future the addition of a porkpacking  factory will be found necessary, as  well as a beef cannery, so that it is  difficult to say how far reaching this  industry may ultimately become. The  enterprise of Messrs.

Short, sharp and decisive will'pretty  accurately describe the local campaign  ���' now. taking place- in   Manitoba.    Both  parties,are fully prepared for the fight  and each is endeavoring to cut out the  pace  for the other.    The government,  with a record behind it of twelve years  faithful,economical and progressive admin iatra'tion, appeals with well founded  confidence   for   a  renewal   of  power,  while the  opposition,   with   a desperation   indicative of the knowledge that  their's is a forlorn hope, are   introducing   many   side   issues  into the campaign.'   Headed by Sir Charles Tupper  and   his   faithful  supporters, Messrs.  .Nathaniel Clarke Wallace and   Nicholas Flood Da'vin, federal oppositionists,  are   stumping   the province,   literally  night and' day,  though   it  is not any  too   clear why  leaders   in the federal  arena should take such an immense interest in the local affairs of Manitoba.  But the farmers of the prairie province  are   a   hard   headed   lot of men; they  have  had practical  experience of the  benefits   of   government   by   meu   of  knowledge and experience,   of a policy  '���   that has opened up the  country, by the  construction of 1,100 miles of  railway;  enabling-  them to bring their products  to   the  market  in   the  least time at a  minimum cost; a policy which   has   removed  all  internal friction and given  equal rights to all races  and creeds; a  policy which has done so  much  to increase the population   of the  province  by   bringing   in    good   settlers,   and  thereby decresse the individual cost of  of living, by dividing  public expenditure among the greater number of taxpayers.  The prospects are very bright  j.or  Mr,  Greenway long continuing to  hold the distinction of being the oldest  premier of the Dominion'.  THE PULP WOOD INDUSTRY..  Although the wood pulp industry has  made considerable prog'ress in the last  two or three years, there  is evidently  immense possibilities ahead of it.   The  fact is generally  recognized  that  the  American pulp  wood forests are practically   depleted,   and  that the future  supply  for the  enormous demands of  the American  paper market must be  drawn from Canada.    But the British  market,   and   the    European   market  generally,  is not much better off than  that of the United States.    True a certain amount  of  the raw material  can  be procured in Scandanavia and Russia  but  Great Britain   at  least is looking  more to the Dominion  every" year for  her   supply.   A representative of the  trade is in Canada, at the present moment, arranging for the visit next summer   of   about  sixty  of  the principal  wood pulp and paper manufacturers of  England, who  desire to look  over  the  ground themselves.    He declared that  although 100,000 tons of pulp were imported for,,Great Britain  from Canada  during   the   last, twelve   months,   the  coming     year    will   see   the   amount  doubled, and in a very brief period the  amount required will be at least half a  million   tons   annually.     Not  only is  there  this   great  and   increasing   demand for the pulp,  but there will be a  splendid  opportunity   for  the   investment   of  British   ca��>ital   in the establishing of pulp  mills, indeed, already  there are representatives of more than  one   syndicate of British   capitalists,  spying out the land and selecting suitable sites for their purpose.  A GREAT COMBINATION.  The opposition appears to be much  hurt at the suggestion that has appeared in government quarters more  than once that they are showing much  greater energy now in explaining how  things should be done, than they ever  manifested in doing them, while in  office; but as the Toronto Globe observes: "No preferential tariff was  enacted until a Liberal government  came into power; then the Conservative leaders whG had done nothing began to show how much better they  would have clone. No aid was given  to Great Brl'.a'; in n;iy war until a  Liberal government came into power;  then the leaders who had done nothing  began to show how much better they  would have done. A Liberal government doing things and a Conservative  opposition shouting make a good combination, and the people will do well  not to disturb it. The Conservative  leaders have good qualities which fit  them admirably for a permanent opposition.  AMENITIES Of PUBLIC LIFE.  Public banquets to public men arc  often of a more or less perftmetory  character and possess very little real  significance. Notable exceptions to  this, however, occur in those tendered  to the two new members of the provincial cabinet, Messrs. Stratton of  Peterborough, and Latch ford of Ottawa, for in each instance they are  '.. 3 ontancous and genuine tributes tt  personal worth, tendered by men of all  shades of politics and every creed as a  i .xugnition of the good citizenship and  all-round merits of the recipients.  In Peterborough a leading part in  the festivities was taken by prominent  Conservatives of the city, who vied  with one another in testifying to the  esteem in which they held the man who  had represented them with integrity  and intelligence for thirteen years.  The banquet to Mr. Latchford in this  city promises' to be of,an equally significant and gratifying character.  Though hitherto comparatively unknown in politics outside his own immediate vicinity, the new commissioner  of public works is not only recognized  here as exceptionally able, but he is  extremely popular, and while his selection for a seat in the cabinet has given  unbounded satisfaction to his friends  it has been well received also by his  political opponents. The idea of giving public expression to this satisfaction originated,as a matter of fact with a  prominent Conservative in town, and  he is warmly supported by many of his  co-partisans. The incident is worthy  of more than local notice from the evidence it offers of a tendency to strive  for a higher and more impersonal  plane in matters political. '  PREFERENTIAL   TRADE.  The good  work inaugurated by  the  Laurier government when it put into  operation a policy of preferential trade  with the mother country is slowly  but  surely     bearing    fruit.    Recognizing  how deep-rooted are the principles of  free trade in England, permeating  the  suggestion of even a semblence of protection,  our  government realized the  utter futility of attempting to secure  any reciprocity  of preference at first  but believed that a practical demonstration  of Canada's good will would  do more than aught else  to reach  the  desired goal.    The principal of government in  England is that of true democracy   and the  voice of the people  prevails every time, so that every new  departure is reached by educating  the  people to realize its desirability.   That  process of education is now going on,  and the work will be aided by  the action of the Toronto board  of trade in  deciding to submit to the approaching  conference  of the' chambers of commerce   of   the empire,  a strong fesb-.  lution   urging  the  adoption of  "commercial policy based upon the principle   of  mutual  benefit, whereby each  component part  of the empire would  receive   a   substantial   advantage   in  trade   as   the result of their national  relationship."    In   this   way   there  is  reasonable prospects of accomplishing  the desired end, which wonld never be  secured by  adopting the  "stand and  deliver"  policy  so long  urged by Sir  Charles Tupper and his followers.  ,  Ottawa, November 25,1899.

CONCERNING   THE  TEETH.  TARTAR.  Tartar is a deposit of animal and  mineral matter, precipitated from the  fluids of the mouth on the teeth. Sometimes, it accumulates in such large  quantities as completely to incfust  them, It imparts to the te'sth a greenish, yellowish, ���!: rl.lsh ^nd sometimes  a white color. Its effects on the teeth  are always injurious.  When once allowed to become in-  crusted with tartar, no one can thoroughly clean his own teeth, because he  can neither see where the masses are  nor can he use the proper instruments  for their removal. The work can ouly  be done by the,dentist. Everyone,  then, shonld visit hisdentist at least  twice each year, for cleaning and examination of his teeth.  The question is often asked, if cleaning the teeth with instruments does  not injure the enamel, or if they are  not so irritated as to Cause disease, and  , perhaps instances are cited in which  teeth of a friend have, in their imagination, been led to decay because of  of the work done on them' by some  dentist in cleaning.      '  It is undoubtingly true, that. when  teeth are, cleaned cavities of decay that  were masked by tartar are uncovered,  but the cause existed before. The  decay of which the  patient  complains  was not   caused^' brit ^revealed by the  cleaning.  Neither the medicines nor the instruments employed by a good dentist will  in any case injure the teethr  TOOTHACHE.  The toothache is the result  of long,  long neglect of carious   teeth.     The  decay  may not have been long known  to exist,' for many never think  of having their teeth examined to   ascertain  their condition.     They seem to think  this is unnecessary  till  they   feel the  actual toothache.!   It is then generally  too late  for the dentist tp be of more  than .partial service,  for it  indicates  that   the     tooth    is   rotten   quite   to  the pulp cavity,-and necessitates uncertain treatment or the destruction-of  the nerve before the tooth can. be filled.  Even . then it is  liable to , give after  trouble by ulceration. : The  toothache  is not,   therefore -a . criterion that the  teeth  need attention, but a proof that  they have   not been attended to soon  enough.     The toothache would  be  a  rare   occurance  if prompt and proper  attention were given to the teeth.  FILLING THE TEETH-  When any part of the tooth ��� becomes  affected by decay the only remedy is to.  remove  that portion  and supply   the  place with a  material that may be so  manipulated that it will become   solid,  impervious, to   the   action   of   air    or  moisture, resist the force of  mastication and serveas.an  artificial  enamel.  DIGESTION-  Good    health    demands      thorough  digestion ; thorough digestion demands  thorough    mastication,' and thorough  mastication     demands,    soivrid      and  healthy teeth.       Ulcerated  roots  and  decayed teeth, an inflamed mouth and  DR.    R.   MATHISON,    DENTIST;  D. D. S.���Pennsylvania    College -of    Dental   Surgery.   Philadelphia,   Licentiate   of   British  vitiated   saliva   are   poorly   fitted    to  supply the stomach with food that can  be properly digested and assimilated.  ARTIFICIAL CROWNS.  Though it is folly to neglect teeth till  artificial crowns are called for, yet we,  should be thankful that when they are  necessary, they can be made so as to  be useful, beautiful and durable. It is  astonishing to see how many roots  that are considered iiseles'scan be thus  made the supports for good comfortable  teeth���teeth looking so natural, it is  impossible for the causual observer  to detect them as artificial, and so use-  fur and easy to the -rrearer he soon  forgets to distinguish them from the  others. In fact, two or three sound  roots are now often made to hold in  place three or four artificial teeth.  This is called bridge work.  With two or three good teeth, as supports, several artificial teeth may ta  attached to such a bridge, and thus  qnite a vacant space niay be filled,  without the vexations of a plate.  There are many improvements in  dentistry of late. It will astonish the  uninitiated to see how many wa}'s  there are of saving teeth. Do not,  therefore, asume to judge whether a  certain tooth can be saved. Go to an  intelligent dentist, and let him decide;  be willing to pay much more for its  preservation than for its extraction.  ARTIFICIAL TEETH.  When the natural teeth have been  lost, the comfort, the health, the speech'  and the personal appearance will be  preserved and greatly enhanced by the'  substitution of artificial teeth skillfully  made!  CAUSES OF DECAY OF THE TEETH.  Judging from questions constantly  asked it is evident few people have a  clear conception of the causes which  lead to decay of,the teeth.  Chief among them is the fermentation of particles of food, lodged between  the teeth, or in their pits of depressions,  during mastication."; When, through  carlessn ess or indifference, these deposits are not removed, under the influence of the warmth, moisture and  the microbes present, fermentation, or  chemical change takes place and ari  acid is generated, and this dissolves  the enamel arid "dentine, leaving a  cavity to grow larger and deeper.  Among other causes producing decay  may be mentioned any protracted sickness, the lack of out door exercise, excessive study, anxiety or worry, which  undermine and weaken, the system.  When the body is ill, no one organ can  be said to be perfectly sound.  EXTRACTION OF TEETH.  Extraction is an ultimate remedy and  should be resorted to in extreme cases  only. If people would give to their  teeth the attention that is their due  there would be no occasion for the forceps, except in very rare instances.  It is because of ignorance, or inexcusable carlessuess, or, the unconquerable  dread of dental operations, that gives  necessity for the forceps. Timely care  might preserve even those which are  naturally weak and bad.  Colli rubia.  Naden-Flood Block  Greenwood, B. C.

C Copper Mining com-  ' pany's smelter, and was quite enthusi.  astic in his, praise of the same. The  Major has had quite an extended extended experience in the smelter business, and was at one time on the Halls  staff.     ���"'.'.,'  Many of the wholesales combined  business with pleasure and Friday  morning were busy booking orders.  J. C. McCagan, of the Vancouver  World, one of the oldest newspaper  men in the province, was with the  Vancouver contingent.  To many, who were the guests of  the Canadian Pacific a year ago yesterday, at the opening uf the Crow's  Nest Pass branch, the absence of  Archie Mackenzie's choir of rag-time  singers, was a distinct loss to the  amusement of the company. Probably  this hint will be sufficient to.get Archie  to reorganize before the company arrives at Grand Forks, so that the banquet to be tendered to the visitors tonight, will be enlivened by the sweet  strains of "There'll Be a Hot Time,"  specially arranged for the occasion by.  the choirmaster. Archie is always  strictly alright, but the choir's absence  from last night's banquet "is to be regretted.  It is said by some of his Nelson  friends, that J. Roderick Roberston.  president of the associatien that is  is "-supposed to attend to the wants of  the business men of not only Nelson  but, the whole portion of southern  British Columbia, refused to journey  west of Robson on account of the non:  completion of the long- tunnel.  Probably he remembered that entirely  too interesting journey by sliegh down  the long hill that takes one from the  city of Fort Steele, across the Kootenay river.  NOTES..  The good conservatives simply  howled when the Manitcbao-elections  were announced at the banquet.  The Grsenwood brass band met the  excnrsionists at the station and played  some excellent music.  The    choruses   sang   by   the t coast  contingent were excellent.  , Several excursionists visited  Phoenix, others the Mother Ivode mine.  The excursionists are to be  bauqueted at Grand Forks this (Friday)  evening.  Thos.' Earle, M., P., and Senator  Reid were in the party. Mr. Earle  was simply delighted with Greenwood.  Geo. Denny and H. Hawson, two of  brightest newspaper men in the  province reported the excursion for the  Victoria Times and Colonist.  The vetera'n Col. Eagen was with  the party for the Rossland Miner.  Rev. Mr. Few, of Nelson, one of the  most eloquent speakers imthe province,  assisted Mr. Peters in looking after  the party. As was stated by Mr.  Peteas, the two 'chaperons" worked in  opposite directions. Mr. Peters was  the more successful.  As a souvenir of the trip, the excursionists were each presented with a  handsome colored card folder. The  outside had in one corner the Canadian  flag crossed with the company's flag  and the lower corner was a steamboat  scene on the Arrow lakes. The wording w��s, "Canadian Pacific Railway.  Complimentary excurson. Opening of  the Boundary country, Kettle river  valley, Columbia and Western Railway, Dec. 7, 1899." The inside portion contained the names and official  positions of the heads of the departments operating from Winnipeg west  to the coast and in the lower section of  the province. The Roiivr-nir was neat  and prettily gotten up.  BOARD OF TRADE.  A  Meetlne of the  Council Held Wednesday  Evenine.

C. in   Summit camp, there  is greater activity than there has been  for the past six mouths, consequent on  preparations being  made for the shipment of ore.    A  part of the electric  light plant is now at the mine and will  be  installed as soon as "all of the  machinery arrives.    New offices and new  bunk houses are being built for the accommodation  of  the  large number of  men  being employed.    Sinking is being continued from the ISO to the   250-  foot levels.    The shaft being put down  is 7x14 feet in the clear.    A  record in  sinking was made in this shaft, it having been put down 60 feet  in 23 days,  and timbered SO feet.    A winze is   also  being sunk from the 50  to the ISO-foot  level.    It is the   intention to widen the  shaft from the surface to  the   ISO-foot  level, as soon as  the present contract  has been  completed from  the 150 to  250-foot  level.    Shipping will be commenced  as  soon  as the dump and ore  iars arrive.  Extensive preparations are being  made for the development of the Washington group of -claims on the West  Fork. Three shifts are now at work on  the properties, The buildings for the  men, shaft house, blacksmith shop,  etc., have all been completed. The  big ledge running through the group  was last week uncovered at another  point and full 12 feet of solid ore exposed. John McCounick returned  from tne properties last week and  reports the waggon road completed  about three miles beyond the mouth of  West Fork. Notwithstanding the  business protests made, the belief is  general in that section that the government intend to build the bridge at the  point selected byF. C. Gamble. This  according to those in a position to  know will entail the useless expenditure of a large amount of money.  A. Hamilton and Thos. Corkill are  doing assessment work on the Great  Laxey. The work now being done is  on a new shaft, which is down about  40 feet. Previous to this year an  incline shaft was sunk 20 feet, a tunnel run 30 feet and a crosscut of 20-feet  from the tunnel. The ore body is  quartz carrying values in copper, gold  and silver, and is a very large showing  oh the surface. The Great- Laxey  group.is oh the south side of Eholt  creek about seven miles, from- Greenwood. Messrs. Hamilton and Cockill  also own the Twin and Black Prince,  two claims lying near the Great Laxey.  On the Twin there is a 12 foot shaft  and a 30 foot open cut and on the  Black Prince two tunnels have been  run, one 15 and the other: 18 feet.  These claims were located in 1895.  James Astley, Consulting engineer  for the Snowshoe was at the mine this  week examining work on the property.  The west drift at the 200-foot lev.el is in  80 feet 'and 'coming into ledge matter.  It is expected that the drift will be in  the ore body in another 25 feet; About  250 feet of drifting and' crosscutting  has been done at the 200-foot level on  the Snowshoe. The drift that is now  being run in a westerly direction, is  intended to strike the surface showing  about 100 feet west or the shaft.  Jno. Farrell made a rich strike on  the Bay Horse fraction in Wellington  camp, the past week. For some time  he has been running a surface crosscut  on a capping, and last week encountered the ledge, which he has uncovered for a distance of 50 feet. The  ore is arsenical iron, similar to that  taken out of the Winnibeg about a  year ago, and running over S100 in all  values to the ton. The Bay Horse  fraction   is  an   adjoining claim to the  ledge is over three hundred feet in  width, proved by crosscut"tunnel. The  tunnel was run 406 feet in ore, but not  at right angles to the ledge.  Work is to be recommenced on the  Rambler group in Summit camp. A.  G. Davis has completed arrangements  for an eight-months working bond  on the properties, and will put a force  of men at work developing the claims  next week. Mr. Davis will thoroughly  prospect the rambler group by surface  crosscutting, and show up the ledge  before he makes a turn on the property.  On the Oro Denoro in Summit camp,  a tunnel is being put in from the side  hill to tap the drift now being run  from the 200-foot level. The King  company is also building offices, bunk  htu,es, etc., on the property recently  bonded by Ross Thompson, and adjoining the Oro Denoro. It is said the  new town will be named Denoro.  Last week R. H. Donegan, of Greenwood, sold the Mountain Chief on  Myers creek to John Empev, representing Barbarion Brown, for SS.OOO cash.  The Mountain Chief lies south of the  Poland China.  A rich strike was made the past week  n the Ah There claim in Deadwood  camp. It is also reported -that some  very rich copper ore is being taken out  of the St. Laurence in the same camp.  Work on the Idaho shaft has been  shut down, owing to difficulty between  the miners and Dominion Copper Company in regard to wages of hammers-  men.  On the Rathmullen group in Summit camp, the drift from the 200-foot  level is in mineralized rock and it is  expected the ledge will be encountered  in a few days.  Work will be commenced next week  on the St. Dlunstan.and'St. Eustace in  Deadwood Camp. These Claims adjoin  the St. Lawrence.  The shaft on the War Eagle is down  30 feet and in ore. Work- is being  pushed' on buildings for boiler and  compressor.  KETTLE   RIVER MINING   DIVISION.  Record   of Mineral Locations for- the Week  Ending December 6,1899-  November 29.

The tunnel on the Golconda group is  in SO feet. Seven sets of timbers have  been put in, and uoyv the yvork is in  a solid formation of sienite, no timbering being required. It is expected  ledge matter will be encountered in another 50 feet.  On the Knob Hill drifting is being  done at the 100-foot level. Drifts are  i being rnn both north a::d south of the  winze. The Knob Hil! is a wonderful  property. In the 2,000 feet of yvork  done in tunnel, crosscuts, 'winze and  drifts, every foot is in shipping ore.

Coryell. C. E., has completed  the survey for the Phoenix yvater  works. Work on the system is being  done as-rapidly as possible. At present the yvater is taken from the dam  built last summer, but a better system  will be needed before spring- opens. It  is the intention of the company to  pump yvater from the Neyv York lake  to a reservoir to be built above the  railway grade. This will give sufficient pressure for fire protection.  David Smith, or "Scotty" as he is  better known here, narrowly escaped  death last week near Republic bv the  explosion of their stock of powder.  He and Bobby Robinson are working  on a claim, owned by the Friend Gold  Mining ".company. Scotty went to the  blacksmith shop a short distance away  to thaw three sticks of poyvder.

McMillan, yvho is  interested in the Snoyvshoe mine, left  for Great Britain, where he will remain for the next three months. Mr.  McMillan will, spend.most of his time  while away in London, where he will  confer with the officers of the several  mining companies in yvhich he is interested. , On his last visit he lectured  before several societies on the. mining*  resources of British Columbia, and will  probably deliver similar talks during  his visit before the Imperial Institute  and the Geographical society. He has  armed himself with data, and says he  is prepared to tell his hearers something of the magnitude and richness of  the resources of this section.  Most gratify returns here, the result  of the first shipment of Gold Bug ore.  The returns are for 20 tons sent to the  '���������  Trail smelter, and give a net value of  $110.60 per ton. The values are divid  ed as follows, 131 ounces-of silver, tveo  and one-fifth ounces of gold, one and a  half ounces copper and 12 per cent,  lead. Hector McRae.the representative  of the London & Canada Syndicate  controlling the stock in the Boundary  Creek M. & M. Co. said yesterday to a  representative of the Times that at the  mine they yvere preparing another shipment of 20 tons, of yvhich 15 tons were  already sacked.   .'.  E. G.

This company carries one of  the most complete  stocks in the Boundary  country, consisting of dry goods,  clothing, boots  arid shoes, furnishings,   groceries and  hardware.    They also have a tin and  plumbing   department   in   connection  with their business.   Eighteen months  ago     George    Wynkoop      and     Jim  Stephens, who yvere then working for  the Old Ironsides company, put their  heads together and decided that  there  was more money in working for themselves than for the company, so rented  the boarding house and opened a store.  The store was located in what is now  known   as   the   Rumberger  addition.  Six months afterwards they opened a  second  store in' the premises now occupied  by  them.    Now they carry as  large a stock as any store in the district, and do perhaps a larger business  than  any other firm in the Boundary  country.    They   still   have   a   branch  store in the lower town.   The business  was stocked this fall, by which Mayor  Hardy, of Greenwood, became largely  interested  in   the concern.     The   Old  Ironsides hotel is conducted separately  from the   other business,  by Messrs.  Wynkoop   and   Stephens.    Mr.   Wynkoop   is   manager   of    the   Wynkoop  Stephens company's business, and Mr.  Stephens of the Old Ironsides   hotel.���  Phoenix News.
