A. cMiinroe  sfc  X  New York and Greenwood were  brought together on Wednesday even-  in jr by the arrival of a party of Gotham  business men who arc interested in the  Montreal and Boston Consolidated  Mining- and Smelting Company. They  travelled across the continent in ihe  private car "Twilight." The New  York Central was used to Chicago, the  Burlington to St. Paul t lie Great  Northern to Grand Fork* and the  C. P..R. to Greenwood. They came  here at the invitation of Messrs.Muuroe  & Munroe who were instrumental in  successfully floating the big consolidation. The hosts did everything in  their power to make the trip a pleasant  one. Geo. Armstrong, from Munroe &  Muuroe's New York.office, came along  with the party and encomiums lavished  upon him by the members of the party  upon their arrival here was an indicator of the success which attended  his efforts to provi-.lfl comforts for the  guests.  It was a jolly crowd who reached  Greenwood \V :dnesc!av night They  were all boys from Col. Plummer, the  the venerable ;le;in of the parly, to  "Handsome  Harry"   froir   the plains.  ACROSS THE CONTINENT.  They thoioughly enjoyed the trip,  they fairly revelled in the pure atmosphere of the west after living between  skyscrapers in New Yoik and Boston.  The weather was perfect all the way  across but the acme of perfection in  this regard was readied in the Boundary . But tlvey' Yv'ere out here for more  than a good time. They represented  their own and other people's interests,  and they came to examine the properties of the Montreal and Boston to satisfy themselves that their money was  well invested and to assure their friends  by bringing home good reports. The  sum of money involved in the consolidation is necessarily a large one and  this is the first time.any of the heavy  stockholders visited the company's  properties. The visit means much for  the Boundary. The men who are here  represent seme of the best financial  houses in New York and Boston, and  judging from the expressions which  fell from the lips of prominent iiieii of  the party at the banquet on Thursday  evening, the interest of neither Montreal and Boston nor the Boundary will  be jeopardized by the visit.  THOSE WHO CAME.  But the banquet is another story.  Those who came across the continent  to sec and invest were under the fatherly charge of Col. John H. Plummer,  retired millionaire and prince of good  fellows. He looked gay and debonair  after chaperoning so many restless  colts. He freely acknowledged the  good conduct of the older members of  the party, and claimed that the young  men, like Senator Werner Miller and  Mr. Charles Macdoiiald, were responsible for all his trouble. Co' Plummer  is a director of the Montreal and  Boston. He is enthusiastic regarding  the properties of the company and the  Colciiel's    ciitliusia.su!    is     infectious.  Senator    Werner    Miller     has    seen  many   years  of   service  in   the   U. S.  House of Lord...... Hi; represented  New  York in the Senate but a few years  ago retired from active politics. He is  no stranget to British Columbia or the  Boundary. He invested in Biitish  Columbia mines some years ago and  also in Republic. The Senator is associated with many of the big financial  magnates of New York, Mjme of whom  are interested or desire to become interested in the Montreal and Boston.  PLUMMER'S COLTS  Charles Macdoiiald is a retired civil  engineer whose success ,-is a bridge  builder is known all fiver the world.  He also knows something of British  Columbia because ne was associated  with Andrew Oiiderdonk in the > (instruction of the British Columbia section of tin- C. 1'. K'. Like many another good man who lias helped to give  the    United    States    a    reputation    for  successful business men, Mr. Macdoiiald was born in Canada, near Kingston,  Out He now makes his home in New  York.  Dr. A. 15. Margoris is one of the successful medical men of the banner  state. He comes from Brighampton.  This is not his first experience in mining'as he has been largely interested  iii mines in Mexico and elsewhere in  the west, and has made many trips  westward in connection with his mining interests.  Geo. Armstrong attained fame before he made a reputation as personal  representative of Munroe & Munroe on  the trip across the continent. He is  one of the best amateur golfers in the  United States. Like the" majority of  the party he is Scotch, with this difference, some of the visitors can successfully conceal the fact, Mr. Armstrong  cannot. He is connected with Munroe  & Munroe's New York office.  BRIGHT YOUNG MEN-  Quincey Ward Boese is a splendid  type of the young American who, during recent years, has demonstrated  that youth is no barrier to success. He  is one of the leading attorneys of New  York and looks after the legal business  of the Montreal and Boston on the  other side of the line.  Louis G. Whicher is another of the  bright young- men of the party. He  comes from the banking firm of  Joes & Whicher, who are prominent  members of the stock exchange.  Dr. Home- Giboney is physician to  the Waldorf-Astoria hotel and has interested himself in Western mining investments.  F. A. Fish is another of the directors  of the Montreal and Boston. He is a  member of the banking firm of Geo. A.  Massor. & Co. Mr. Fish's firm' is  heavily interested in copper investments.  FROM BOSTON.  W. F. Bartholemew represents the  Boston News Bureau, one of the big  financial journals of the east. Boston  is the home of the copper investors,  and the Boston News Bureau is their  ���organ."���������������-���-���������-:---^^i._.z^--^.-_-.,^-.^li.-.!i_^  Joseph H. Cody is another bright  Bostonian the wit of the party during the trip across the continent. But  behind the "Sunny Jim" smile is a  shrewd business capacity necessary in  the representative of the big banking  firm of Hayden, Stone & Co., who are  big dealers in copper securities.  G. A. Shaw represents a New York  banking' firm Keach, Lowe & Co.  Willis W. Russell who is a  replica of Henry Cabot Lodge  represents the American Playing Card Trust. His company  commands millions of capital  some of which is likely to  find its way into British Columbia.  Rdward Lyndon is a well  known electrical engineer and  W. R.Mitchell.is a young niin  ing engineer with good connections. He represents a  number of investors including his father in this trip  and as he has the technical  knowledge of mining his report will be awaited in Gotham with considerable interest.  Last but not least. A. Gra-  ham is bright newspaper  man. His paper is "The  Courant" published at Hartford, Conn.  SMELTER BLOWN IN  The private car Twilight with the  party on board reached here about  eight o'clock Wednesday evening.  They were welcomed to the Boundary  by A. A. Munroe. They went down  to the smelter at Boundary Falls that  evening and found one furnace running full blast. The furnace was  hlowd in Wednesday morning. Since  the consolidation was successfully  ac  complished, superintendent Collins of  the company's mines systematically  went to work to get the various properties on a permanent shipping-basis.  The Brooklyn. Stem winder, Rawhide,  Athelstan, and Sunset were all overhauled, shafts were straightened and  other improvements carried out. From  the outset the management announced  that everything would be in readiness  to blow in the smelter on October 1st.  This date was anticipated a few days.  Regular shipments are coming to  smelter from the various mines and  the second furnace will shortly be  blown in. This will be followed by a  third and fourth. The capacity of the  smelter will be increased from time to  time and with a converter plant added  the company will then be in a position  to treat its ore at the lowest possible  cost.  The visitors inspected the smelter by  electric light. Superintendent Welch  and manager Pemberton were kept  busy showing the various parts and  answering questions.  Thursday was a day of rest for the  majority of members of the party.  Thursday night they and a number of  Greenwood citizens were guests of A.  A. Munroe at a complimentary f"1"  quet given at the Imperial. .  THE BANQUET  No better method of bringing New  York and Greenwood closer together  could have been suggested. The 6\n-  ner was .exciille_nt, excellently cooked  and excellently served, the speeches  were all in a happy vein and there was  a splendid feeling of good fellowship.  The speec hes of the evening so far as  the mining industrj' is concerned were  made by Messrs. Hodges and McAllister both of whom stated that the ore  was low grade but the values were  sufficient to insure an absolute and  permanent profit and the amount of  this profit depended solely on the  quantity of ore mined and treated.  Mr, Munroe presided. To his right  was Col. Plummer who acted as .oast  master; to his left Chas. Macdoiiald  and seated around the festive board  were the jisjtors from New York and  the following local people, A. M.  Whiteside, Dr. G. M. Foster, W. B.  Wilcox, Phoenix, M. Brookes, W. G.  Gaunce. J. K. McAllister, E. G. Warren, A. B. W. Hodges, J. P. Myers-  Gray, H. F. Stow, W. G. McMynn,  Duncan Ross.

The visit of the big-part}-of  New York capitalists is an im-  portent event in the history of  the Boundary. There is no more  promising- field for the investment of capital than the Boundary district; on the other hand  capital is absolutely necessary to  tlie development of the larger  bodies of low grade ore. We  have the mines, New York has  the capital. Bringing the two  together will be mutually advantageous. The Times joins  with the otlier residents of Greenwood in extending- to the distinguished visitors a cordial welcome. We trust that they wiK  enjoy their" visit and that they  return home convinced that they  have seen the best and biggest  mining- camp in the world.  to  be  distinctly understood that  we want no more of it.  "Government        construction,  ownership and operation of  railways   is   the  plain   way to state  the   government ownership platform.     Mr. R. L. Borden, in his  speeches as leader of  the opposition,  or in  his motions made in  the commons, has not advocated  that policy, and so far has not in  frankness  raised it as an issue.  In    the    senate   Sir   Mackenzie  Bowel 1 stated  that operation of  railways was not included in the  proposals made bv the opposition.  A thousand.year-lease deal of the  Mackenzie & Maun   brand would  fill all the promises  that have so  far been officiall}' made.     We of  the   labor   party   object   to  any  party   getting   votes   on    decoy  schemes.      If   the   Conservative  part)- is prepared to adopt government ownership,   let  them adept  it and win on it;  but if the party  has not got that much virility let  it bear the loss."  <F*  <F*  <F*  �� ��  Capital, all paid up, $14,000,000.  ontreal.

The announcements made by  the Boundary Creek Times in recent issues in reference to railway  construction westward are being  confirmed by railway officials.  Sir Thomas Shaughnessy admitted that his company intended  building west, and Great Northern officials who were recently in  Vancouver announced that their  road would be extended into the  Similkameen. The race by the  two rival railroad corporations  will be watched with interest.  The construction of these roads  means much to the Similkameen  district whose progress has been  retarded by lack of transportation  facilities. It is a district, however, that will not prove disappointing to the railroad builder.  A GOLD BRICK.  The virtuous party which  gloried in its act for the "hiving  of the Grits', and preventing an  honest expression of public opinion; which enacted a special franchise act and placed it entirely in  the hands of its own agents to assist in the same purpose; which  regularly assessed contractors in  order to create, election funds;  which was guilty of every conceivable electoral crime in order  to entrench.itself in power,which  fortified itself so strongly that  nothing- less than apolitical revolution could remove it from its  stronghold���that party is today  assailing the Laurier government  with charges of corruption, but  is unable to produce one tittle of  proof in support of its allegations.���Victoria Times.

EDIZA DETIl   GALLOWA Y.  Conservatives are attempting  to belittle the Grand Trunk Pacific project by advocating a policy  of governmental ownership.  With many of the Conservative  leaders, including Hon. John  Haggart, ex-mijisterof railways,  Sir McKcnzie Bowell, ex-premier,  opposed to governmental ownership, the sincerity of the Tory  advocates is not above suspicion.  A. \V. Puttee, M.

In his paper,  Hie   Winnigeg  Voice, he says:���  "Some prominent persons are  welcoming the approaching contest in the belief that for once  again it is be fought on a higher  plane, and that the cmestion of  government ownership as a policy  for Canada is to be settled. This  may be very comforting to some,  but people Avho have fought for  government ownership, and the  Labor party who make it a cardinal principle in their platform,  don't want a gold brick at anybody's hands.

On  Wednesday  evening    he   will jjresent  his  latest  and  most  pronounced  success,   "Heart   and   Sword,"  a spectacular romantic diama  of  absorbing interest.    Mr.  Nelson  is still  under the  management of Mr. C.  P.   Walker,  to  whom Western Canada's theatre-goers  have   in   the  past   been   indebted   for  entertainment of a superior character.  Mr. Walker promises that Mr. Nelson's  production of "Heart and Sword" wil'  in the elaborateness of  its  costuming,  scenery   and   lighting  effects,   jelipse  even the splendid  production   of "Quo  Vadis:" which was the chief theatrical  event locally of last season.

A VANCOUVER SURMISE  Vancouver Province   Believes Great  Northern will build-  The Great Northern Railway intends  to proceeds immediately with the construction of a line of railway from  Midway, in the Boundary district, to  Princeton, in the Similkaineeu, via  Hcdley City.  The riches of of mineral deposits of  the Smilkamecn Valley are to be turned into the Gran by smelter at Grand  Forks for reduction; James J. Hill,  president of Great Northern, owns the  controlling interest in the Granby  smelter; the Granby people own large  interests in the Tulameen and Boulder  districts, and so it comes about that  James J. Hill is going- to build a line  of railway right into the heart of the  Smilkmeen to act as a feeder   for   his  Bargains-Bargains  on  New Iron Beds, Springs, Mat-  trasses.

S.BARRYYUILL  smelter and his lines of railway to the  south of the boundary line between  Canada and the United States.  The charter under which the Great  Northern will build into the Smilka-  meen is that one so well known to Vancouver people���it is none other than  the charter of the V., V. & E. Railway  which some time sine; passed into the  hands of the Great Northern, and the  rights to which were renewed at the  last session of the Dominion Parliament.  Yesterday Great Northern Railway  officials commenced to reach Vancouver from all points of the compass. On  arrival, each official professed to know  nothing of importance, and each said  he had just casually happened along.  As a matter of fact the Great Northern people, some of them the highest  officials in that company, came to Vancouver principally to hear the report  of J. C. Eden, general traffic manager  of the Great Northern, who spent the  past two weeks touring the Similka-  meen Valley, and receiving information from Great Northern and Granby  smelter agents located throughout that  territory.  Mr. Eden reached Vancouver yesterday direct from the Similkameen. He  made his report. Those who heard it  were Mr. J. D. Farrell, assistant to J  J. Hill; R. I. Farriugton of St. Paul,  second vice-president of the Great  Northern and financier of the com  pany; F. E. Ward of St. Paul, general  manager of the Great Northern; Mr.  S. G. Yerkes, general western passenger agent of the road, and possibly  some others intimately connected with  .the move to build the line from Midway. Included in the "others" were  one or two local men who in the past  had much to do with the V., V. & E.  charter.  As a direct result of the report turned in by Mr. Eden, there left Vancouver at 7 o'clock this morning for  the Similkameen, Mr. R. I. Farriugton and Mr. F. E. Ward. Although to  all inquiries from newspapers as to  what the conference in this city means  the Great Northern officials were deaf,  it leaked out today that the gathering  here was in the main for the purpose  of hearing- Mr. Eden's report. That  such is the case is obvious from the  trip Messrs. Farrington and Ward  started out on today. That the Great  Northern intends to rush the line of  railway into the Similkameen there is  no possible doubt for the information  was confirmed today from a source  which cannot be questioned.  Twenty miles of the road from Midway toward Hedley City has already  been surveyed, and construction is to  be proceeded with immediately material and men can be placed on the  ground. Already shipments of rails  have been started in from Bellingham,  Washington, and more are following  from the same point. -=>  Mr.'Eden states that the possible ore  output from the mineral properties at  and in the vicinity of Hedley City  alone warrant the construction of a  railway .---That Mr, Eden-is-notbasing-  that statement on guesswork is shown  by the fact that last week Geologist C.  H. Wolf of tlie Granby smelter wa> in  the Henley district from the buindary  line ui-rtli a> lar a^ Princeton, in fact,  he h.id m.ide a general roundup of inform.ilion concerning the mining prospects of the eiiiire eountry. the output  of which, it is planned shall be drained  into the Granby works.  Being in possession oftheV.,V. &  E. charter, and therefore in a position  tion to commence construction without  haqing to run any bills through either  the local or Dominion house, construction of the line from Midway to  Princeton mry be commenced without  delay by the Great Northern.  In view of the activity of the Great  Northern officials in the Smilkameen,  tne completion of the surveying of  twenty miles o* the road, the known  transportation of rails from Bellingham to Midway by the Great Northern  and the semi-official announcement of  to-day that the building of the line is  to be pushed, there is every reason to  believe that work will be actually started within the next couple of months. '  Possibly at seme later date the Great  Northern may make use of the remaining portion of its V., V. & E. charter  and build into Vancouver, but apparently there is no intention of such  action at present. Perhaps some other  line of railway may tap the Similkameen from the northern end of the  valley and lay some of its riches in the  lap of Vancouver ?���Vancouver World.  2  Boundary Ore Shipments*  Granby; Mines   Mother Lode   B.

Question of Matrimony  When a Clerk in  Bank B. N. A- is  Allowed to Wed.  The San Francisco Examiner of  recent date refers to the rule in force  in the Bank of B. N. A. that no clerk  earning less than S1500 can take unto  himself a wife and incidvntally announcing the engagement of Fritz  Lewin, who for several years was connected with the Greenwood branch of  the bank.    The Examiner says:  ���'It is not absolute celibacy that is  enjoined on the young financiers of  the Bank of British North America,  but merely relative.  The paternal care which the directors of that institution exercise over  these young men has reduced marriage,to a phase of banking���that is to  say, it is a question of finance and  arithmetic. The information was  elicted by way of cemmentary on the  case of Frederick Lewin, a young  banker whose engagement 1o Miss  Laura Sanchez Scott was announced  Yesterday. ' .  Now }he stern fathers of the Bank of  British North America have declared  that nOne of their young men shall  embark on what some graceless poet  has called ''the sea of matrimony" unless they are earning a certain hard  and fast minimum.  But look you, this is not the $14 a  week desideratum which for months  has agitated the breasts ofthe fair and  the unfair in this neck of the woods.  No, sir. The irreducible minimum at  whic'r the monastic rule of the Bank of  Bfitish North America shall be relaxed  is $1400 per annum. Make a note of it  ladies, and in the future when the gay  young British financier conies a courting after office hours just ask him if  he is earning SI400 a year before engaging youtv ^affections. ^__Although  Britannia reles the waves the British  "sea of matrimony" cannot be navigated for a penny less. Because  Biitains never, never shall be slaves.  It would not be polite to inquire  whether Mr. Lewin's income passes  the irreducible minimum of $1400 a  year, but he deprecated publicity because really the bank people might  not like it. He was seen yesterday  at the badk and asked about his engagement and the harsh unbending  regimen of the matrimonial minimum  enjoined by the unpoetic board of directors."  Miss Jessie Shirley and her company who will be at the Auditorium  next Wednesday and Thutsday, Oct.  5 and 6, is conceded by bott press and  public to be the best company that  have ever played the provinces. The  theatre goers of Greenwood will have  a dramatic treat in the engagement of  this this talented little lady and her  sterling con,pany. The plays which  are to be presented by this capable  organization are "The Princess of  Patches" and "Camille." The first  named play is the story of a young  girl who having been stolen when a  babe by an octoroon slave belonging  to.her father, is brought up in ignorance of her parentage. The slave  afterwards murders the father in revenge for a flogging. The opening of  the play discloses the Silverthorn  plantation and the real action commences at the entrance of a tramp,  (Waggles) who has found the clothing  ot a little girl on the river bank, and  brings them to Col. Silverthorn, think,  ing the owner has been drowned. Miss  Shirley as Selma, (called the Princess  of Patches) makes an entrance in the  first act which is both novel and  unique. The play is full of startling  climaxes and funny situations, and  is replete with pathos and comed3",  Synopsis of Regulations for Disposal of Minerals on Dominion Lands In Manitoba, the  IXorthwest Territories   and   the   Yukon  Territory.

It was necessaay to perform two operations on him. and everything possible  was done by the physicians in attendance and the Sisters to save his life  but to no avail. Mr. McLelland was  26 years of age and a miner by occupation. He w.is a member of Movie  Miners' union, a member of the Odd  Fellow's lodge in Greenwood and ���_���.  member of the Encampment and Re-  bekah lodges in Rossland. As a devoted and enthusiastic member of  these orders, he governed his daily  life by their precepts and teachings,  and when the end came he was prepared and passed to that eternal rest  which a well governed life has for its  ward. The. news of his death, while  in the prime of life, will carry sadness  to many hearts.  The funeral was held in Crankrook  today and a special train was run from  Moyie. Over 100 people from here  turned out. The funeral was held  under the auspices of the Moyie Miners'  union and Oddfellows' lodges of  Cranbrook and Moyie. The pall bearers were made up of three from the  union and three from; the lodge. Services were held at.the Methodist  church, Rev. S. J. Thompson officiating. The casket was covered with  flowers. A wreath in the form of  three links, the Oddfellows emblem,  was made by Mrs. Foote. The letters  W. F. M. and a cross were made by  Mrs. Elmer, and a cross was made by  Mrs. P. J. McMahon. The remains  were.shipped to his friendsin Ottawa."

A meeting of the directors of the  Providence Mining company was held  in Greenwood this week. Among  those present were W. Macey of Phonix*  J. Peatt of Spokane, and all the local  directors. The directors ordered the  purchase of the Diamond fraction, adjoining the Providence mine, from  Wm. Diamondi The consideration is  about $8000.  At the manse September 26th, by  Rev. M D. McKee, Mr. John Alexander  Hanna and Miss Lizzie Louseke, both  of Phoenix, were united in marriage.  Mr. and Mrs. Hanna will make their  home in Phoenix.  K. H. Robinson was advised by wire  on Monday night that his three year  old daughter had died from diptheria  after 36 hours illness. Mrs. Robinson  and the family went to Vancouver  about three months ago. The dread  epidemic appears to be prevalent at  the terminal city and the family did  not escape. Mr. Robinson left for the  coast on Tuesday. Much sympathy is  felt for Mr. and Mrs. Robinson in their  sudden and sad bereavement.  Sir Thos. Shaughnessy and party of  C. P. R. officials did not come to the  Boundary after all. Too much time  was spent ;on the coast, so that' the  party was forced to go east over the  Crow's Nest line without visiting the  camp with the tonnage. Sir Thomas  made some interesting announcements.  He said the C. P. R. would build a line  through the Kootenay valley to Golden  and also a line from Midway to Ruby  creelr. Ruby creek is on the main line  across the Fraser river from Hope.  When the work is to be commenced  was not stated.  Dr. J. G. Rutherford, chief of the  Dominion Veterinary department, was  in the city over Sunday accompanied  by Dr. S. F. Tomie of Victoria. Dr.  Ruthford's jurisdiction extends from  ocean to ocean and his visit is one of  inspection. He is particularly anxious  to improve quarantine facilities at  various points where horses and cattle  cross from the other side. During  recent years large numbers of scrub  horses have been imported, some of  which were diseased. Quarantine  stations will be established at certain  points and customs officers will be instructed not to accept any entry of  cattle or horses unless passed at these  stations. Drs. Rutherford and Toliine  went west through the Similkameen  district.  The Providence Mining company on  Monday bought the Diamond Fraction,  immediately east of ' the Providence.  The main lead of the Providence is believed to run through the Diamond  property as it has already been traced  almost to the line of tne claim. The  consideration is said to have been 1600  shares of Providence treasury stock  and is regarded as very reasonable by  mining men. Wm. Dimond, the owner  of the property, preferred to take stock  in the company to taking cash, believing the stock a better investment  than he could make with the money.  On September 30 another dividend of  10c per share will be paid by the Providence company. This means a 12 per  cent interest already earned this year  on the par value of the company's  stock.  East Greets West  the toast of the King. Canuck aud  Yank joined together in singiug the  national anthem, and the toast was enthusiastically received.  Duncan Ross hastened to congratulate the people of New York upon havingreaclied the^rbtiiised land~arid MrT  Munroe upon being the Moses to lead  them. out of the wilderness. He  thanked Col. Plummer for his words of  good will and for his eloquent references to His Majesty the King. He  briefly referred to the progress made  in the Boundary.  W. G. Gaunce in a short but eloquent  speech also welcomed the visitors. He  pointed out that we were people of one  blood, one race and whose ideas and  ideals were the same. He rejoiced that  it was so and thought the coming together of the people of New York and  Greenwood   would be mutually advan  tageous. We had the ore, they had the  capital, arid as an evidenceof what the  Boundary could do he quoted figures to  show the remarkable progress made in  the Boundary.  The toast to the President of the  United States was received with the  same enthusiasm that characterized  the toast to the King. America took  the place of God Save the King and enthusiasm did not slacken. Senator  Miller responded in an eloquent speech  in which he paid a tribute to Canada  and Canadians, urged reciprocal trade  relations and depreciated the fact that  the suggestions made by Canada for  reciprocity were turned down by the U.  S. government. He spoke in glowing  terms regarding President Roosevelt.  He referred to his investments in this  country, some of which were not profitable but he believed in looking for  his money where he left it. Patience  and determination and t'.ie investment  of large capital were sure to bring in  large'eturns in this district. He congratulated the Montreal and Boston  Consolidated on its investments and  Munroe & Munroe on their successful  flotation.  A. M.   Whiteside also welcomed the  visitors to the Boundary and proposed  a toast to Munroe & Munroe who were  I so successful in promoting the consoli-  ' dation.  : Before Mr. Munroe responded Col.  ! Plummer took occasion to say that  ; New York appreciated the Munroes,  j appreciated their sterling worth, their  ��� enterprise and push, that they were all  friends of Munroes and they were go-  ' ing to stand by them.  Mr. Munroe in a modest speech  , thanked Col. Plummer and others for  ! the many kind things said,  | Mr. Charles Macdonald was introduced as a Canadian by birth and a  '��� New Yorker by adoption. He himself  didn't know what courtry he belonged  i to. He had a warm spot in his heart  j for his native land. He was delighted  j with the trip and impressed by the  I magnificent resources of the country.  j Mr. Arthur Shaw entertained the  ���' company with an exhibition of skirt  I dancing, and Mr. Pemberton's splen-  | did voice was heard in several topical  songs, Mr. A. W. B. Hodges acted as  accompanist.  MEN WHO KNOW.  J. E. McAllister, supt. of the B. C.  Copper Company's smelter, spoke as a  technical man with eighteen mouths  experience at a smelter treating Boundary ores. He had not  the experience of Mr. Hodges who was  the dean of Boundary smelting. Outside of Mexico the Boundary was the  greatest copper producer in America.  (Applause.) It was only a question of  production at low cost and that problem had been solved. (Applause.) The  stuff is here to be worked and we know  how to work it. (Applause.) He paid  a compliment to Mr. Hodges by saying  he had paved the way to success and  they were all profiting by his experience He congratulated the Montreal  and Boston on the success of their flo-  '"tati6n"an"d~b^'"th~e"valuabl'e,:'p'r6p^Yties'  which they had secured.  A. W. B. Hedges, general superintendent of the Granby company's  mines and smelter, said there was considerable talk about low grade ores but  low grade mines meant success (hear,  hear) and low grade mines meant success in the Boundary. (Applause.)  The total profits are measured by the  amounts you can mine and smelt per  day The profits are here. He was  glad to learn of the consolidation.

The Montreal & Boston had in Phoenix  mines just as good as the Granby, but  not so well developed. (Applause.)  He extended to all a cordial invitation  to visit the Granby mines and see for  themselves what Phoenix mines Jook  like after five year's development. He  would be glad to cooperate with the  Montreal and Boston and assist them  in any way he could.  (Loud applause.)  H. T. Pemberton, general manager  of the Montreal aud Boston, thanked  the visitors for the opportunity to show  them the properties of the company.  He felt sure with the necessary capital  that in less than five years they would  be able to make just as good a showing  as the Granby  or the B. C. Copper Co.  Lack of space precludes even a reference to happy speeches by C. A. Fish,  a director; Quincey Ward Boese, attorney for the company; Mr. Bartholemew,  Mr. Graham, Dr. Margoris, Mr. Brooks,  Mr. Stowe, Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Cody, |  Mr. Armstrong, Mr. McMynn, Dr.  Foster and Mr. Whicher.  Mr. Wilcox, of the Phoenix Pioneer,  iu a neat speech stated that while the  mining companies were doing things  and furnishing plenty of copy, the  newspaper men would be>glad to print  the news.  The banquet was over at one o'clock.  Those from Greenwood declared it one  of the most successful affairs ever held  in the city, and the gentlemen from  New York one and all claimed they had  seldom spent a more pleasant evening.  VISITING THE MINES-  Friday morning the members of the  party went to Phoenix to examine the  big mines of the company. Some  drove up while others took considerable  diversion out of riding festive cayooses.  The day was spent at the Brookly and  Stemwinder.  Tomorrow night the visitors will be  guests of the Greenwood Club at a  complimentary smoker.  MYERS-GREENWOOD  At the residence of the brides parents Anaconda, Mr. Arthur H.
