 %vp*% \PX  ��t1  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19  1902.  No. 4.  Pnblic Meeting was Held in  the City Hall.  1  Discussed by Dr. Spronle and Major  Geo. W. Fowler.  Major Geo. W. Fowler, M. P., Sussex, N. B., and Dr. Sproule, M. P.,  East Gray, addressed a public meeting in the city hall on Monday evening. They are members of Mr.  Borden's party and came in here to  preach ths political gospel according to  the great and only conservative party  in Canada. I. H. Hallett presided and  in a neat speech in which he referred  to the lack of interest taken in federal  matters, he introduced Mr. Fowler.  The audience was not a large one. It  was attentive but not enthusiastic.  The majority of those present were not  Conservtaives.  Mr. Fowler began by eloquently  referring to the vastness of this country  and the necessity for eastern members  to make themselves better acquainted  with the resources of the west so  that  they could the more intelligently consider matters appertaining to the west  that  came   up   in   the  parliament of  Canada.    He suggested that the party  to which he belonged were looking for  knowledge   and   not    conducting   an  political   campaign.   In    that   search  they, had   djtscp vexed   that... there were  many  things  in  B.   C., that required  redress at  the  hands of the   government.    It  was  a fact that British Columbia did  not get a fair share of the  appropriations.     Laurier   had   grown  eloquent and indignant in   1895  when  out in B. C.    He  told the  people here  that  it was an outrage that they were  payitig $16 a  head into the Dominion  exchequer and getting back only ��4 in  the way of appropriations.    When he  got into power, this would be changed.  Well continupd Mr. Fowler Sir Wilfrid  has been in power for six years,   Today the people 'of B. C.  are paying $17  ^to-$18"per^head 'and gettingback'hbt  one dollar more.than the}' were in 1S9S.  This' is the  way  Sir Wilfrid Laurier  keeps his pledges.    Col. Prior brought  ' up the matter on the floor of the house  and  the only  reply he could get from  Sir Wilfrid was the jocular one that he  was glad  the  people of B. C. were so  rich, they could  pay  $17 a  head  into  the  treasury.    Then  Sir Wilfrid had  not kept his pledge in reference  to the  restriction  of   Oriental   immigration.  He sent a  telegram  in   1896  that he  wouid be  guided  by  the  Liberals of  B. C. in this  matter  but all  they did  was to increase the poll tax from ��50 to  SlfjO.      The  B;. C.   legislature   passed  restrictive   measures   but   these   were  disallowed   by   the government of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier.   It demonstrated that  Sir Wilfrid did not intend to  keep his  pledge   and   this   view    was   further  strengthened by the fact  that the very  man who was  appointed  Lieut-governor of this province was the  man  who  escorted Li Hung Chang through Canada.    Mr.   Borden  has  promised if returned   to  powes  to  allow  legislation  along the lines of  the  Natal act.    Mr.  Borden will keep his  word.    The Con-  k servative party always kept its word.  Mr.   Fowler  then  went back to 1870  and 1878 when  he claimed the Liberals  maligned B. C.  and   tried  to  prevent  the construction of the C. P. R.    He  said that the Liberals cried down  the  country and assailed its fair name in  order to secure party gain.    The  Conservatives were the party of progress,  the party who made this country.  Again the Liberal party posed as  the special friends of labor. They  passed an alien act it is true but refused to allow Mr. Clark and others to  introduce amendments that would  make it effective. He considered it  absurd that it was necessary to go before a county court judge to get a warrant to begin action.    The  Labor bur  eau was established for the  purpose of  perpetuating the Liberal party.  Mr. Fowler then went into  the subject of lead ores and the government  should further encourage the lead  industry.   Mr. Borden has promised that  if returned  to  power  he will further  protect  this  industry.    He   accounted  for the increased   exports  during the  Liberal  regime by stating that the increase was duty to the export of Yukon  gold.    He claimed that   no reduction  had been made in the  duty in agricultural implements.    The Massey-Harris  people  who were   contributing   large  sums to the liberal campaign fund had  to be protected, and Lyman Jones was  appointed to the Senate.    He also re  ferred   to  the   increased   expenditure  although the Liberals had promised to  run the country for less than S38,000;000  o year.    Now the eqpenditttre was over  $62,000,000.    He criticized the taking  of the census and said that Hon Sydney  Fisher was  known  as Lad j' Fisher or  Miss Nancy Fisher and that he parted  his hair in the middle.  Dr. Sproule told the audience some  funnjr stories and then made a strong  plea for party   lines in this province.  He fully endorsed the  platform  ofthe  Revelstoke convention and hoped that  the   people   of   this    province   would  divide  into two  parties so that there  would  be some assurance    of   stable  government    in    the   province.     He  eloquently  referred to  the wonderful  resources and possibilities of the province.     He then  went back 35 years  and gave the history of the two parties  irom his point of view from 1867 to the  present.    He criticized the Biitish preference and  those   Liberals who protested against sending the contingent  to South Africa without the consent of  porliament.     He also referred to the  failure  in  securing the fast Atlantic  service and denounced the government  for.not settling  the Alaska boundary  dispute.     He also denounced the large  expenditure of pudlic   money   landed  national policy  and closed by urging  the young :metf to take''"a"' keener"in cer"-"  est in public affairs.  Three cheers were given for the  King and the meeting dispersed.  In the afternoon Mr. Hallett showed  the visitors the Greenwood smelter.  Dr. Sproule left by the morning stage  for Republic, while Mr. Fowler left by  the afternoon train to join the party at  Nelson.  Joint Stock  Company Organized to Work Property.  Is Interested���Takes a Big Block of  Stock in Company.'  Visiting Old Friends.  A. K. Stuart was in the city this  week looking up old friends after an  absence of two and a half years. He  left here to go to the Paris exposition  as western commissioner. The excellent work he did there induced the  Dominion government to appoint him  to an important position in connection  with the Glasgow exhibition. He  afterwards organized the agent-  ganeral's office in London but he was  too good a man for the Dominion  government to lose. Mr. Fisher re  cently engaged him for three years and  in that time he will collect a mineral  exhibit and take charge of it at the St.  Louis exhibition in 1914.  I  Mineral Exhibit  Immigration Commissioner at Winnipeg Wants Collection of Ores* _  The Times is in receipt of a letter  from A. J. McMillan, managing-director of the Snowshoe, enclosing a  communication from J. OBed Smith,  commissioner of immigration, Winnipeg. Mr. Smith asked for some ores  from this district for the government  office at Winnipeg and states that a  very large number of people visit his  office in the course of a year and he  find there is an increasing demand for  information regarding the mining  regions of the Kootenay. As a large  number of people visit the Winnibeg  office in coming west a small comprehensive shipment of Boundary ores  should be on exhibition there. W. G  Gaunce, secretary of the Board of  Trade, has the matter in hand. It is  hoped that mine owners will co operate  and send in samples to his oflice. Mr.  McMillan will do anything he can in  securing a collection of Boundary ores.  Liberals Meet.  The Greenwood Liberal Association  will meet in the cit3r hall on Wednesday evening, Sept. 2+th. During the  summer months no meetings of the  association was held. Business of im  portauce will be discussed at the coming meeting aud a  full  attendance of  Liberals   is  requested.     Liberals  not  0    ������  belonging  to the association  are cor- j copper deposits in Copper  camps  dially   invited   to    be    present     and  dentify  themselves  with   the association.  S.S. Fowler general manager of the  London & B.C. Gold Fields and the  Cascade Power & Light Company was  over from Nelson this week.  Lequime's saw mill on Smelter Lake  near Grand Foiks was completely destroyed by fire on Monday last. There  was no insurance.  The Providence Mining company,  Limited, was organized this week with  a capital of $200,000, divided into 40,-  000 shares of five dollars each. The  shares are fully paid and non-assessable. As was stated in the Times last  week W. M. Law and his associates  acquired William Fowler's interest in  the Providence. While that deal was  bring negotiated C. J. McArthur wired  Mark F. Madden of Madden Bros.,  financial brokers, Chicago, asking if  he would take a small interest in the  deal. Mr.' Madlen is an old time  friend of Mr. McArthur and although  they had not seen each other for several  years, Mr. Madden replied that he  would be glad to take an interest but  he wanted more" than Mr. McArthur  suggested. Mr. Madden started for  Greenwood reaching here Saturday  evening. After examining the Providence and seeing the rich ore there,  he became as enthusiastic as the local  people regarding it. A meeting of  those interested was called on Monday-  evening and the Providence Mining  company, Limited, organized as stated  above. -The officers elected are .as  "follows'':"'"���President, Mark F.Madden,  Chicago; vice-president and manager,  Duncan F. Mcintosh, Greenwood;  sec.-treas., W. M. Law, Greenwood.  The board of directors comprise these  and J. J. Caulfield, J. A. Russell,  Greenwood, and J. H. Peat, Spokane.  The seventh director will be appointed  from the Chicago share holders. The  head office of the company is in Greenwood, but Mr. Madden will look after  the affairs of the company in Chicago.  Of course a large -block of the stock  has been taken by those interested  locally. Mr. Madden has taken a  quarter-interest on -his-own- account  and he expects to sell the balance of  the stock among his financial friends  in Chicago. His firm do a large financial business there and he says that  there is plenty of money in Chicago  awaiting investment; all that it required to get it turned this way is  confidence in the country.  The Providence is situated within a  quarter of a mile of the city limits. As  has already been stated in the Times  it was bonded about a year ago by  William Fowler. Shipments of ore  aggregating 43% tons recently sent to  the Trail smelter yielded a net return  after paying freight and treatment  charges of $6,367.51. Mr. Mcintosh  has two shifts of men at work on the'  property and shipments of this high  grade ore will be made at an early  date.  Neither Mr. Madden nor his firm  have dealt much in mines or mining  stocks, so that during his busy life in  the big city he did not have occasion  to pay much attention to the mining  industry. Today however he is an enthusiastic believer in wealth of the  Boundary district and that it will  ultimately make one of the greatest  mining districts in the world. In  company with Aid. Caulfield and Mr.  McArthur he visited the big mines at  Phoenix and in Deadwood camp, the  rich Jewel in Long Lake  and  the big  He  thinks the Boundary a good field for  investment and intends bringing out  some of his Chicago friends to see for  themselves.  Mr. Madden returns home on Monday.  Hodge���Stark.  L. B. Hodge, the local manager for  the Vernon and Nelson Telephone  company and Miss Eliza M. Stark of  Galashiels, Scotland were married in  Christ church, Winnipeg, on the 8th  inst., Rev. S. G. Chambers officiating.  The. bride travelled from her home in  Scotland and was met by Mr. Hodge  in Winnipeg wnere they were married.  Several congratulatory telegrams were  sent from here as soon as word came  that the nuptial knot had been tied.  They are enjoying a honeymoon along  the line of the C. P. R, and are expected to reach here on -Tuesday next  when' they will receive a warm welcome from Mr. Hodge's many friends.  Are Running Full Blast and  Treating Large Tonnage.  If  Is Short of Power on Account of  Scarcity of Water.  After a n ight with ' 'A Wise Member''  an enthusiastic writer for the Cincinnati Enquirer says: "A Wise Member" not only tells a story which keeps  the average auditor in constant, anticipation, but is filled wito crisp,  snappy, bright and witty lines, the  cleverest up- to- date topical songs and  catchiest "Coon" melodies, ridiculously funny scenes and situations,  vaudville features that are: absolutely  new and.,startliug, -pretty, girl��y��coo-r  tumes that are gorgeous, yet in keeping  and in good taste, scenery and stage  accessories that appeal to the eye, terp-  sichorean achievements that cannot be  excelled, a fund of humour that holds  one in constant merriment from the  rise to the fall of the curtain, and best  of all, a cast of unusually clever people.  The second season of this play will  undonbtedly be even a greater success  than  the first.  This attraction will be at the Auditorium one night Friday Sept.  26th.  R. W. Brock, of the Dominion.Geological Survey, having about completed the work of obtaining topographical, geological andmineralogieal  data of the more developed of the mining camps of the'Boundary, is about to  leave the district for Ottawa, where he  will prepare for publication a full report on these camps. He will also put  in shape the information necessary for  a geological map of the part of the district he has examined, which map the  Geological Survey will be urged to publish as early as possible next year for  the information of prospectors and  mining men generally interested in the  district.

Times office.  ���woooooooooooc-c-oc-oc-ooc-oooo  More High Grade Ore  Another of the high grade properties that surround tlie city of  Greenwood is being developed.  Adjoining the Gold Finch is the  Lancashire Fraction owned by  C. R. Pittock of the Gem Restaurant, C. L. Werner and R.  Sluggett. Mr. Sluggett and  another man have been at work  on the property for some time  and now have two tons of high  grade ore on the dump. The  ore is similar in character to the  Gold Finch ore and runs from  S78 to $187 in gold with small  silver values. One vein is from  three to six inches wide, while  another that has just been exposed is fully 12 inches wide.  Several offers have been made to  lease the property but in all probability the owners will work it  themselves.  -r>oooc>o<xx><><>o-r>o<>oo��o-o<>*<>ooo-c>  1 he Greenw"ood smelters   are   now  running full blast with a capacity of  nearly 1200  tons a day.   The Granby  smelter is not quite so fortunate.   On  account of scarcity of water  in the  North Fork and consequent  lack   of  power the converter had  to be shut  down and also two of the four furnaces.  The supply of water power in the North  Fork has been found to be  inadequate  at low water to supply sufficient power  for  the   furnaces   and the converter.  The company hope  to  augnent this  with   power   from   Cascade   but   the  delay in installing the plant there has  necessitated the closing down of the  convertor and two furnaces until high  water times, or the Cascade power, can  be transmitted.At the local smelter.the  genius of Paul Johnson has evolved'a  scheme by which water for granulating  the   6lag   can   be   economized.   The  molten matter from  both furnaces  is  conducted- to a common settling pot.  The slag from'this empties into one  flume.   By this means only two-thirds  as much water to granulate the slag is  used as would be necessary if the slag  Lfrom the.furnaces were treated -separ-  'ateiy. ���'  The ore from ' newly opened  glory;  holes at the Mother Lode is  richer in  copper and consequently increases the .  proportinate quantity of   matte,   for  the volume of ore treated.  The Sunset smelter in' addition to  treating the Sunset ore is receiving -  regular shipments from the Snowshoe  mine. The surface ore at the Snow-  shoe which is now being shipped is  somewhat silicious but makes a good  blende with the heavy iron ore of the  Sunset.  A. A. Munroe, secretary-treasurer  and J; N. Green��hields,~K.~CM one of  the directors of the Montreal and  Boston Copper company are now on  the coast and are expected in here  early next week.  James H. Kennedy chief engineer  of the V. V. & E Railway and A. M.  Lupfer of the Great Northern engineering staff reached Vancouver. The  only reference the Province made to  their visit was "James H. Kennedy  of Grand Forks B.C. is down on a  short visit to the city and is a guest  at the Vancouuer." The World it  more industrious it republishes in its  entirely an article from the Boundary  Creek Times written' before Mr. Kennedy left here. Strange to say the  World treats the article as its own  giving the Tines no credit. Yetjthese  two journals are always boasting- about  their  enterprise.  I. Oppenheimer and wife of Vancouver were the guests of their son  Dr. Oppenheimer of this city. They  came in by way of Penticton and returned by rail yesterday. Mr. Oppenheimer was one of the pioneer merchants of  the   coast.  Work has been resumed on the Em  ma in Summit Camp with W.T. Smith  in charge. He started working the  Emma on his own account and succeeded in exposing an-enormous body  of copper ore. This induced his associates McKenzie & Mann to take  an interest in the property. They  will furnish the funds for future operations.  Dr. G. M. Foster is enjoying* vacation. This week he waa in Vancouver with his father, A. Foster of  Pembroke Ont. Dr. Bouchar bis partner is attending to his practice. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK TIMES.  *#��rf����*#*��####***########��������##&��#*:^  THE BEST WORKMANSHIP  EVERYTHING GUARANTEED.

Per Year ��� $ 2 00  Six Mouths  1 25  To Foreign Countries 2 SO  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 190;.  VISIT OF CONSERVATIVES.  The visit of the Conservative leaders  is sure to redound to the advantage of  British Columbia. After all they are  not nearly so bad' as their campaign  speeches would indicate. They are  gentlemen who have the good of the  country at heart. Heretofore many of  the eastern politicians were ignorant  of British Columbia and its resources.  When matters relating to this province  came up for discussion, the great  majority of the members approached  it with a want of knowledge and a  lack of sympathy. The best friends  of British Columbia in the parliament  of Canada are those who know it best.  The tour of the Conservative party is  bound lo make them better men with  better conceptions of the vastness and  potentialities of the great country to  which they belong.  From this point of view the trip is  undoubtedly a great success. From a  political point of view we hope that  Conservatives arc satisfied;the Liberals  assuredly are. This" is'what"might-be"  called an off year in politics. With  bounteous crops, with a plethora of  prosperity that afflicts all portions of  Canada save British Columbia, it is  difficult to get the intelligent elector to  execrate those awful Liberals or enthuse over the glorious records of the  past in so far as the Conservatives are  concerned.  Dr. Sproule and Mr. Fowler in addressing a Greenwood audience were  a disappointment. They should take  a leaf out of the book of their gifted  leader and change their tactics. Votes  are no longer made by hurling un-  anathemas at political opponents. Sir  Charles Tupper was a past master at  this sort of political warfare. He  went about the countiy like a roaring  lion seeking whom he might devour.  People admired the physical strength  and endurance of this remarkable old  man but wearied of jeremiads. Today  Sir Charles is a private citizen and  some of his quondam followers will  occupy the. same happy position unless  they find something better to give the  people than rattling dry bones and  maligning political opponents.  Mr. Fowler, particularly paid a very  poor compliment to the intelligence of  his Greenwood audience. Tempted  possibly by the remark of the chairman that citizens of Greenwood did not  take a keen interest in federal affairs,  he fell into the error that they were  ignorant of the history of their country  and that nothing was too absurd or too  ridiculous to place before them. There  are a few politicians of this stamp���  ' men wbo have plenty of courage in  making charges and ridiculing 'their  opponents when they are addressing  an audience in what they consider an  isolated place where their remarks are  not likely to be reported but who are  quite meek and guarded where there is  a probability ot their statements being  challenged.  In his desperate search for argument against his opponents Mr Fowler reached the height of absurdity for  who but a desperate man would criticize the venerable and courtly gentleman who now occupies the position of  Lieutenant-governor in this province  and suggest that the reason he secured  his appointment was because he escorted Li Hung Chang through Canada ?  At the time Li Hung Chang was making a tour of the world, he had audiences with the Queen and other rulers  and was received by Joseph Chamberlain as the greatest, statesmen in a  great country. He returned home by  the C. P. R. and for imperial reasons  the Dominion government was asked  to treat.as the guest of the nation, his  journey through Canada. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier asked Sir Henry Joly to accompany him across the continent and  Sir Henry did so. What earthly bearing this has on the Chinese question no  one can see except perhaps a conser-  servative orator who having no argu*  mens to offer thinks any old stuff is  good enough for the benighted people  of this town. Equally absurd was the  suggestion that the census were badly  taken and the minister of agriculture  was a failure because he parts his hair  in the middle and is known as Lady  Fisher or Miss Nancy Fisher. Mr.  Fowler" "ref erred " to" the' f acr~that "at"  Victoria they were 1,000 miles further  from Halifax than they would be in  London, Eng. Both he and Mr.  Sproule enthused over our luxuriant  wheat fields, our illimitable mineral  wealth,our inexhaustable timber area s  our fisheries and all other natural resources that is bound to make this  country great. To bring about the  highest stage of development, to people this vast domain with happy and  contented millions, to make this  country what it ought to be, one of the  greatest and grandest countries in the  world, are problemns that are well  worthy the attention of statesmen.  Surely Mi. Fowler is not a fair type of  the present day Conservative statesman when in the face of all this he can  give his audience matters of no greater moment than the fact that Mr.  Fisher parts his hair in the middle.  Dr. Sproule is a very nice old gentleman who reflects the greatest credit on  his ancestry both in loquacity and wit.  He has a fund of funny stories with  which to entertain his audience and  also relieve the tedium of his version  of Canadian history from pre confederation days until the present. The  genial doctor scarcely reads Canadian  history aright. The history of this  great country is not made up of the  mistakes of the Liberals nor of the  Conservatives. Canada has had statesmen, great men, in both parties���men  who did a great work in welding to-  | gether the various sections of the  country, and who started the country  nationward. What care we today for  the mistakes of the  past.    The  men  who never make mistakes are the failures of life���men who do nothing.  Are the Liberals to be forever damned  because honest Alexander McKenzie  considered it a mistake to give away  this great country in order that a railway might be built ? The railway  was built and today Dr. Sproule endorses in full the platform of the provincial conservatives who demand  government ownership of railways.  Is opprobrium to be forever heaped on  the Liberals because Hon. Edward  Blake borrowed Dr. Grant's happy  phrase and called this province a sea  of mountains. What if W. S. Fielding  did once preaeh seccession ? The time  probably demanded drastic measures.  Is that any reason why his loyalty  should be impugned ? Dr. Sproule did  not tell us that the Queen once issued  aproclamatioh offering a reward for  the arrest of Sir John Abbott and his  Tory cohorts because they preached  annexation and secession not froiu  Canada but the mother country. Those  was the troublesome days of Canada  when men took extreme measures  But Liberals are slow to unbury the  past and revile the men who have since  done their share in upbuilding thi  country. Dr. Sproule claimed that the  conservatives had a monoply of all  that is good in the history of this  country but facts are stubborn things  and they refuse to deny the Liberal  party credit for making every fight for  civil and religious liberty in this  country. Both parties have their  mission. It is idle for a public man to  come here and tell intelligent people  all virtue is with one party and all  vice with the other.  We think that the interests of the  Conservative party would have been  better served had the speakers on an  educational tour refrained from making bitter and eztravagant statements.  In the heat of an election campaign,  much can be overlooked, but only a  desperate man would in these dull  political times exhaust a rather fertile  imagination to fined material for a  campaign speech.  Speecnes aside, all welcomed the  distinguished visitors. They were  shown some of those magnificent  mineral resources which are so glibly  talked about and some of the biggest  mines in the world. Their visit was  an eye opener which is sure to make  them more enthusiastic Canadians and  less bitter partizans.  <>CKKXK>0<K><KXH>0<K><XX><KKXK"^^  -0<XKX><>c><'K><'-0-0<H"^^ OOOOOOOOOOOCO  li  11  Established 1836.

Caribou-McKinney Co's  mine Friday. A fall of rock in one of  the underground workings caught hin.,  breaking his left leg above the knee  and also breaking the ankle of the left  foot.' He suffered considerably whilst  waiting for a doctor to travel the 49  miles of distance between there and  Greenwood, but showed as tlie boys  say, real grit.. After the broken bones  had been set Hunter was taken to tlie  Sisters' Hospital at Greenwood, where  he is now in the charge of Dr. Spankie.  Geo.

Towns have been ruined  in that way. Instead of doing- the best  with the resources at their command  they have reached out for the unreachable.  Those who believe that stable government cannot be secured in this province except through the medium of  party lines," must view with satisfaction the result ot the conservative convention at Revelstoke. At the convention all -were apparently in favor  of party lines and many of the stalwarts who.hereafter opposed party  politics in provincial-matters, acknowledged that they had been converted,  and would heretofore be guided by the  views of an organized conservative  party. .   If there be no backsliding, the  . ' liberals must necessarily meet a united  conservative party and a more stable  government is assured no matter which  party wins. ' The greatest danger is  that the reincarnated party is likely to  be stampeded by designing men about  j election  time and the existing chaos  continued.  Then the platform adopted does not  suit the party save in its vagueness.  What isn't vague is radicaly or socialistic. Those who are responsible  for it doubtless thought it would prove  an excellent votegetter, still it may  act as a boomerang since conservatives as a rule have no sympathy with  government ownership of public  utilities. John Houston was at the  convention and the trail of the serpent  is seen from one end of the platform to  the other. John is a conservative in  name only. He has never been in  sympathy with its policy or aspirations. When he gets a chance he does  things and he was king at the Revelstoke convention. Some startling results followed. Men like Col. Prior  who have been associated with nearly  -every big corporation in the province  and who haye assiduously endeavored  to give all the pub|^la-uds:ari'd cash  subsidies to railway corporations must  stand sponsors for a platform that  would'bring joy to the heart of a Kansas populist.  Liberals should be perfectly satisfied with the result. They are more  in sympathy with some of the planks  of the platform t'lan tories can be and  their only hope, is that the.rank and  file in the tory camp will not shy at its' |  socialistic clauses but will stay true to  the party so that a straight party fight  - -may-ensue at the-next-election.ii^-""i  among the smelters of the world for  capacity and cheap and economical  treatment of ores.  In the most friendlv spirit we would  advise our esteemed contemporary to  cease struggling after those things  that only came to cities that are situated like Greenwood and Phoenix. We  will be great mining and smelting  centres. That is our destiny. Grand  Forks could be made an agricultural  centre. If the Gazette would only  cease looking motintainward aud encourage the exploitation of the agricultural resources of the Kettle River  valley, it would be doing Grand Forks  a better service. Instead of advising  people to haul ores up hill and down  hill, an unreasonable distance for the  questionable advantage of having them  treated at Grand Forks, it should point  out the ad vantage of "owning a piece  of the earth". If Grand Forks had  turned more attention to agricultural  pursuits instead of boosting Hot Air  lines and trafficing in smelter sites,  that mining men don't want, it would  be a better town to day and might be  in a position to supply Phoenix and  Greenwood  and  the   large number of  Are you using  "Blue Ribbon'  Ion  tea?

His  language is as  involved and  almost  as  execrable  as  his arguments.    He introduces a  two  column article with some complimentary  references  to the Boundary Creek  Times, but after wandering hopelesely  about in the realms of imagination   he  finds  himself  assailing the   innocent  Phoenix Pioneer.    This dreadful state  of mind was  brought  about by  some  figures in the Boundary Creek  Times.  Some  time ago the veracious correspondent at Grand Forks sent out the  news that Mr. Waterlow was in Grand  Forks hunting a smelter site and that  John  Manly   showed   him   one.    The  , Times mildly suggested that this could  not be true since Mr. Waterlow was too  sensible a man  to fight nature,   The  Times   gave   facts   and   figures;   the  Gazette replies in vitupuation  and   incidentally drags the Phoenix  Pioneer  into the  discussion.   It is rather unfortunate for Grand Forks that nature  placed it so far away from  the  mines,  but no  number of   exaggerted  statements will bring it   nearer.     Grand  Forks  may  attain  some fame as  an  agricultural  village but  it can never  hope   to be a  mining or a  smelting  centre.     It is too far away and too low  down.    We really  wouldn't have said  anything had  we known   that our remarks  would  excite  the editor of the  Gazette to such an extent that he would  attempt   to   belittle    the    Greenwood  W. H.

The Greenwood correspondent  the Vancouver News-Advertiser has  his own opinion regarding- the political  situation in Greenwood from a Tory  standpoint.. He sent the following- to  his paper under date Sept. 10}h.  "A meeting- of the Liberal-Conservatives of Greenwood and vicinity was  called for last evening here, but as  only eight persons put in an appearance no meeting- was held. The meeting was called by the Secretary of the  local Liberal-Conservative Association  to consider the advisability of appoin-  ing delegates to the Convention at  Revelstoke, but of course none were  appointed under the circumstances.  One of those present informed the  others that he had received telegrams  from Colonel Prior and Mr. C. J. South,  the latter being organizer for the  Provincial Association, and a letter  from the Chairman of that body.  Each disclaimed any intention to neglect Greenwood in the matter of notice  Of intention to hold the Convention,  and the Chairman suggested that the  local post-master was to blame, in  not having delivered a notice stated  to have been mailed. However, local  business men do not find him neglectful in carrying out his duties, so have  no good reason to suppose that in this  ���particular instance he failed to deliver  a letter. But whether the neglect was  on the part of'some one connected with  the Provinciol Association or not, is  of little moment. The fact of more  importance to its Executive is, that  there was not sufficient interest taken  in the Convention by Liberal-Conservatives in and about Greenwood  to. admit of a meeting being held when  called. Meanwhile the Liberals are  quietly "sawing wood" in the Boundary, encouraged by a timely visit from  the British Columbia representative  tn the Dominion Cabinet, Senator  Templeman, and Mr. Aulay Morrison,  M. P., with Mr. Smith Curtis, M. P. P.,  to help along the cause. It is somewhat singular that on a previous occasion, and that when a Provincial  election was in sight and every vote  was needed to improve  the chances  of  -ft#<H��������<J<niu!.'#����<f a�����tB��<:Sua*  *  *  *  *  *  ex-Governor Mackintosh's election,  the, org'anizer appointed at Rossland  by the Liberal-Conservatives blundered  in the Boundsry, and so lost opportunity to aid to their candidate's  strength. As to the part}' leaders  from the East coming into the Boundary, there seems to have no idea of  such a notice of a district, which has  this year shipped more ore than all the  rest of  the Province���a   district that  may on no account be passed by by the  British journalists now touring Canada. Not a bit of it���leave it to the  Liberals, who better appreciate its  support.  H. Shnllenborger has two or three  men at work on the Cresent, situate  in Skylark camp. This claim had already been prospected considerably,  and now a shoot of quartz v\ ith gold  and silver is being opened up. Two  cars of ore are on the clump waiting  shipment, but before it can be got out  some 3,000 feet of waggon road will  have to be made.  Do you use Blue Ribbon Tea ?
