The Great Property Mow���Only One  Canadian Director.  Now that the Consolidated Granby  Mining, Smelting and Power Company has held its yearly meeting the  public is able to come to conclusions  as to the truth of the many reports  that have recently been circulating  about the company, its ownership and  its future management. The meeting  was held in MonU'eal on the 4th inst.  and advices received disclose the following facts :  This, the greatest mining corporation iu Canada, has undoubtedly become an American concern and its  headquarters will be removed from  Montreal.  Of the issued stocks 950,000 shares  have fallen into American hands  while 380,000 shares are still held by  Canadians.  The directors, with one exception  W. H. Robinson, manager of the  Eastern Townships Bank, Quebec, are  all Americans. The personnel of the  new directorate is as follovys: John  Stanton, president of the \Volverine  Copper Mining company and the Mohawk Mining company; William H.  Nicholas, president of the General  Chemical compeny and the Nicholas  Chemical company; J. Langecloth,  president of the American Metal company, limited, and George Martin  Luther, secretary of the Nichols  Chemical company; George F. Diker,  Jr., First National Bank of New York;  W. Payne "Whitney, capitalist; (all the  foregoing are of New York); W. H.  Robinson, manager Eastern Townships bank, Quebec; Jay P. Graves,  president Spokane Traction company,  Spokane; A. L. White, vice president  'Spokane Tracti6n~company,~Spokane,*  and George Crawford Clark of Clark,  Dodge & Company, H. J. Higginson'of  Lee Higginson & Co.; Arthur C. James  of Phelps, Dodge & Co., all of Boston,  and George Baker.  The annual report makes a very  creditable showing for so young an  enterprise, built up under rather adverse circumstances. The following  are figures quoted from the report:  The amount received from production for the year was $2,948,551 and  from renls and land sales, S17.795, or a  total of 52,966,347. Against this there  was working expenses of 51,814,216 and  the cost of foreign ore and matter,  $868,619, making a total of 32,682,833,  leaving net profits for the year, $283,-  000, which, with the previous year's  surplus made a total of S967,067. Out  of this dividends were paid last November. The dividend referred to was  something over $130,000, thus leaving  to all appearances the snug amount of  $830,000 now on hand.  REPAIRING  TWIN  CREEK   FLUME.  In order to prevent a reoccurence of  last spring's trouble, when considerable damage resulted to Greenwood  streets bv the damming up of the  waters of Twin creek near the city  hall, the authorities are having the  flume enlarged and the angle by which  the waters are diverted from the natural to the artifical channel materially  reduced.  CARD OF THANKS-  Mr. and Mrs. G. B. "aul desire to  express to their friends and the public.  their sense of appreciation for the very  kind consideration and sympathy extended to them in the sad trial to which  they have been recently submitted.  JOINT DEBATE.  Messrs.   Burrel  and Ross  Meet   at  Eholt Last Evening-  For the first time since receiving  nominations from their respective par  ties, Martin Burrell, Conservative candidate, and Duncan Ross, the Liberal  candidate, discussed the political issues  from the same platform at Eholt last  evening. There were about forty  electors present. C. M. Rendell occupied the chair.  The meeting having been called by  Mr. Burrell, he was the first speaket  and for an hour he discussed the tariff  and the Grand Trunk Pacific. Mr.  Ross replied in a forty-five minute  speech ridiculing the Coniervative  arguments and justifying the Liberal  policy. Mr. Burrell closed the meeting  It is quite possible that the candidates  will not be able to meet again during  the campaign as Mr. Burrell leaves  next week for the Similkameen and  Mr, Ross goes to the Okanagan district tomorrow.  THE LAST  Will Resume Active Operations After Long Rest.  By Mr. D.  McVicar Who   Recently  Sold the E. P. U.  Mr. D. McVicar, who recently sold  the E. P. U. mines to Duncan Mcintosh  and associates, has returned to camp.  The Greenwood district was evidently  too good a thing for him to abandon  and he has assumed charge of the Last  Chance and has already begun operations thereon. The Last Chance is a  stock company owned largely in Spokane but has been idle for some time.  The property lies about a mile east of  town in what is now proven to be the  high grade belt, There is a well  equipped plant on the property. Considerable development has been done.  There is an incline shaft on the vein  about 100 feet deep, aud also a vertical  one of about the same depth some  distance from the vein. The ore is  apparently similar to the Skylark the  mineralized ' portions giving- good  values in silver with some gold.  We congratulate Greenwood in being  able to retain Mr. McVicar among it��  citizens and wc congratulate Mr. McVicar on his identification with what  is believed to be an excellent property.  ODDFELLOWS' DANCE.  The Oddfellows of Greenwood, who  have so often demonstrated their  special ability in the line of entertainment, are preparing lo give another  dance in the near future.  WELCOME HOME.  The people of Gceenwood and vicinity  lire glad to welcome Rev. Kather'Bedard  back to Greenwood, looking hale and  hearty after his well earned vacation  of two months in the homeland back  east.   A $5,000,000 LOSS.  With an estimate loss by bush fires  of five million dollars to standing timber throughout the province during  the season, the British Columbia government has little reason to be proud  of the parental care which it exercises  over this valuable ptib'ic asset. If the  experience of the past summer does  not suggest remedial action, we know ]  not what will. The outcome is self-  evident: Efficient fire warriency system at an annual cost of say $50,000, or  the present rotten system with a provincial loss of $5,000.000.--I1. C. Lumberman.  ALLURING ,  SPECIMENS  Are  Found  Near  Bottom  of the Shaft of  Now   Being    Worked  by   a   Local  Syndicate.  About a month ago Messrs. McGillis  Carolan and Knowles acquired through  Messrs. Gaunce & Wickwire a very  favorable working bond and lease on  the Combination claim lying on the  hill at the junction of Eholt and Boundary creeks and only a short distance  west of the Elkhorn. They were all  experienced miners and took the bond  only after careful examination of the  property.  The former record of the Combination, made in the early days, was not  sufficient for them, they acted on their  own judgment based upon what they  saw. Since acquiring the property  they have been engaged in getting it  into shape for early development. The  old shaft has been cleaned out, the  timber renewed, and the general workings of the property put into safe conditions. This week while examining  the lead near the bottom of the shaft  they were astounded to find some very  rich specimens of free gold, in fact  nuggets running in value from 25c. to  SI.00 each. The Combination is likely  under the new contract to rival the  record made when owned by the Bartholomew brothers. In 1896 Mr. C. E.  Bartholomew took a sample of one  hundred pounds of Combination ore to  Spokane, where it went through the  process known as "bucking it." The  returns from the hundred pound  sample at that time were as follows:  Lead, 30.3 per cent; silver, 512.8 oz.;  gold, 3.2 oz; a total value at then current prices of the metals of $432.97.  The Combination ore contains galena  iron and copper sulphides, black sul-  phurets of silver carrying free gold.The  pav streak widens as depth is obtained  being severariifcHeiOvide~"af'"thV'"b6f-?~"  torn of the shaft.  A tunnel has been run into the side  of the mountain about 100 feet with  the idea of tapping the ledge at considerable depth. This tunnel will presumably be extended into tlie hill.  This latest find in the Combination  revives stories of the old times when  specimens therefrom literally fllecked  with free gold were being Jexhibited  in the camp, for one of which a Greenwood resident paid $25 in coin.  Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Redpath desire  to express their thanks and gratitude  to their friends in Greenwood for the  sympathy shown them during their  recent bereavement.  DEATH OF MILDRED PAUL.  Little Mildred Paul, second daughter  of Geo. B. Paul of the 13. C. Copper  Co., died on Saturday last at the  Sisters' Hospital. The brave little  girl had suffered intensely for several  days, and made a great fight for life  assisted by the very best medical skill,  but although her great vitality was a  surprise to all she finally succumbed.  As a last resort an operation on the  little sufferer was appealed to but  without effect. *.  The funeral took place from the  Paul residence on Kimbcrly avenue on  Monday afternoon and was largely  attended. Six little boys, schoolmates  of the deceased, acted as pallbearers  and the remains were followed to the  grave by a number of girl friends.  Rev. Mr. Perley of Phoenix conducted  the service on behalf of the local  me.tbodist church, whose pastor, Kev.  J. P. Knox,-1 was unable to officiate  from sickness, although he came from  the hospital to be present at the service. The public sympathize with the  family in its great bereavement.

At a recent meeting' of the  Dominion Trades and Labor  Congress an effort was made to  convert the Congress to the  Socialistic policy. The resolution advocating the change was  voted down by a large majority.  In speaking against the resolution President Flett of the Congress made a strong speech.  The resolution, according to  the president, implied a great  deal more than appeared on the  face of it. Such measures have  been condemned repeatedly by  the American Federation of  Labor, and were in reality insid-  uoui resolutions introduced b}- a  body of men hostile to the labor  movement, who wished to substitute their visionary schemes'of  industrial co-operation for the  solid advantages obtained by true  trades unionism. The trades  union movement had in the  opinion of the speaker, gone as  far as the tailoring classes of  Canada wished it to go to-day.  The Socialists played with  economics with a view to mystify  people. The mover of the present resolution was himself, a  Socialist, and had on one occasion wished to run in opposition  to a labor leader in the city of  Toronto. Socialism was a chimer-  cial dream of industrialism, and  underlying the resolution lay a  danger threatening the trades  union movement. President Flett  instanced Germany where the  Socialists have most influence,  and pointed out that there they  had not done so very much for  the working classes. "We want  the practical now," concluded the  speaker, "and not visionary  schemes that tend to demoralize  our work."  To The Electors  of Yale-  Cariboo:  As the Liberal candidate in this  electoral district, I respectfully solicit  your vo*es and influence.  No attempt will be made to discuss  the general issues of the campaign in  this address. Since receiving-the Liberal nomination in January last, I  have visited many parts of the riding  and made myself thoroughly acquaint  ed with its requirements. This work  will be continued until election day  but owing to the large extent of territory to be covered it is a physical impossibility to visit all sections or personally interview all the electors. I  therefore avail myself of this opportunity to ask for vour .suffrage.  Pertnit me to direct your intention to  some matters of local importance.  Yale-Cariboo fully warrants the expen  dittire of public inoiiey in its development. The government has already  done much in this direction. It has  granted aid to several lii.es of railway;  government owned teleifaph and telephone lines have been constructed: the  necessary monev fias been voted lo  secure telephonic communication  through the rich Nicola ami Similkameen districts, and telegraphic communication between Vermin and Kel-  mviiii. In order that the practically  inexhaustible mineral, timber and  agricultural resources of the district  may be fully developed, 'his policy of  governmental aid must be continued.  It is important that Yale-Caribo-* shall  return as its member one who can  direct the attention of Hi.- government  to matters of vital importance to the  district and who will support the government in its aggressive policy of development. It i> particularly important   that   the   electors  of   this   riding  should show their appreciation of the  government's broad, statesmanlike  plan of constructing anothet transcon  tinental railway which will be the  chief factor in opening up the northern  portion of the riding. Branch lines to  connect with the southern transcontinental lines will surely follow and the  whole interior of the province will be  opened up.  Briefly, my policy, so far as Yale-  Cariboo is concerned, is a policy of development of all its important sections.  With a leader whose record fills with  pride all people of this country, irrespective of party affiliations; supporting  a government whose eight years of  wise, progressive administration has  placed Canada in a proud position  among the nations of the world, and  at the same time has more closely connected the ties which bind us to the  mother country, and fully endorsing a  policy which means so much to the  western portion of the Dominion, and  more   particularly  to  the   District  of  Yale-Cariboo. I await with confidence,  i  your verdict.  Ycurs very sincerely.  Duncan Ross.

Work on the Midway and Vernon railway has been delayed far  bcyond the point where the promoters and the public believed it  would begin. The summer has  passed, the autumn is passing,  and although important preliminaries have been completed, no  actual building has begun. The  Fault in no way rests with the promoters who have labored incessantly, and at great expense, to  hurry the project forware. Nor  does it rest with local or federal  governments, both of which have  promised liberal assistance to the  enterprise. The promoters, con-  lidciit of its merits, are now  simply waiting for those committed to the scheme to take the  initiative.  Whether or not one of the great  systems will absorb this, which  would provide a valuable feeder  to either, is a problem yet to be  solved, but whether built independently or as a branch line  matters little to the public. The  West Fork mining district and  the rich agricultural country on  the west side of the divide are inviting fields for a railway, and  their development largely dependent thereon.  Our latest advices are that a  move in this matter may be expected at any time.  Mrs. Malcolm of New York, is visiting her da.uyht.er, Mrs  J. L.

It was a tired party who left here but  a party enthusiastic about the mineral  resources of the Boundary. Each and  every one left convinced that the  Boundary was a district that offered  every inducement to the investor and  that the Montreal and Boston Consolidated had secured more than i's share  of the good properties. When they  reach home they will spread the good  news in Boston and New York.  Little time was given to play during  the visit here. Every day was spent  climbing the hills examining the properties of the Montreal and Boston  and those of the Granby company.  This is no easy task but nearly every  one who came to see climbed up hill  and down dale during the four days  the party was here.  Saturday night the visitors were  guests of the Greenwood club at a  complimentary smoker. They came  in response to an illuminated invitation, the work of Randolph Stuart.  The invitation card was as generous  as the Boundary ore bodies. It covered an area of about 10 square feet. It  will be kept by Col. Plummer as a  relic of the trip.  The smoker was thoroughly enjoyed.  The singing by H. T. Pemberton, C.  Scott Galloway and others was much  apprec'ated. H. T. Stowe and A. W.  Young and H. Eeamy and H. janion  were principals in exciting three round  boxing bouts and there were other  forms of entertainment.  Sunday evening the party dined in  their official residence the car "Twilight". After dinner at the suggestion  of Dr. Margoris, the different members  of the party gave expression to their  opinions of the Boundary and more  particularly the properties of the Montreal and Boston. All expressed their  appreciation of the trip and all were  impressed with the splendid outlook  for the company in which they were  interested. These sentiments expressed are embodied in the following  interviews secured by a Times representative.  The Times was also requested to  oublish the following :  RESOLUTION OF THANKS.  ���'At a meeting of the members of  the "Twilight Party" held in its official residence on Sunday, Oct. 2nd,  1904,. the following resolution was  unanimously adopted:  Resolved that we desire to express  o.ir thanks for the hospitable and  courteous treatment that was uniformly extended to us by the citizens  of Greenwood during pur sojourn  among them."  COL. PLUMMER.  John F. Plummer said he was much  pleased with all he had seen. "My  -impressions are. most.Javorable,''_.he  said, "and I am agreeably surprised at  all I have seen the last three days. I  did not expect to find ores in such  abundance and representing so great  values, nor did I expect to find the  railroad facilities nearly so good. I  regard this section of the country as  promising the best of results. These  opinions are based on an inspection of  the properties of the Montreal and Boston Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Co. With the control of a smelting  plan*-1 consider the earning capacitv  of the company for dividends limited  only to its size and number of furnaces. I have greatly enjoyed meeting the people of this locality and  thoroughly appreciate their kindness  and hospitality which I will remember  for a long time."  DR. MAGORIS  Dr. A. E. Magoris of Bitighampton,  N. Y., has seen much of mines and  mining. He spoke interestingly as  follows: "We have a party of men  who are not only good observers but  quallified from a wide experience to  express valuable opinions of what they  see, which makes an interview uf  value to your readers. This section of  the west is a revelation to me in many  ways. The climate is delightful, the  people intelligent, courteous and lull  of progressive energy. Like all mining districts it is now entering on the  true age of permanent prosperity. The  boom and lull have botn passed and  the awakening which comes with  proven values and sufficient capital for  full development is now with you.  "We have visited and carefully examined many mines and properties  and find some i.f the largest and best  low grade copper mines we have ever  seen. A pleasant surprise awaits the  owners in what we believe will prove  rich values in the mines with the development-     There   is   more mineral  wealth in this district than can be  converted into bank funds in several  generations. Already the true processes of reduction of these ores has  been obtained by experience and by  owning and combining the products of  the varions properties to produce the  required combination for the saving of  all the metals and working to save all,  at least expense will give results that  could not be obtained in any other  way. We can speak now intelligently  of the Montreal and Boston Consolidated Co. as we have so carefully examined their great properties. We  have never examined an enterprise in  which the management combines such  energy, intelligence and excllent judgment and can forsee for this great  enterprise wonderful prosperity. Their  great enterprise will bring great  wealth to this district."  MR. BARTHOLpMEW.  W. T. Bartholomew, of the Boston  News Bureau, says: "I was much impressed with the possibilities of your  country. I can see where the three big  companies operating here will soon be  treating 5000 tons of ore per day which  means increased labor and general  prosperity for the country. It has  been thoroughly demonstrated that  one half per cent, copper ore with  small values in gold and silver can be  profitably treated in this country and  in consequence there must be a steady  growth of the country. The Granby  will have to look to its laurels or the  Montreal and Boston Co. will be giving it a rub. That company has a  progressive management with ample  capital. Supt. Collins of the Montreal and Boston, says the properties  under his care will be able to turn out  3000 tons of ore daily before the close  of a year and it has been demonstrated  in this district that the profits from the  low gaade ores of this district can only  b ��� measured by the amount that can be  mined and smelted.  "This country has been well advertised by the Granby Co.'s operations  and a successful career by the Montreal and Boston would still further  advertise it not to speak of the en-  'trance of the Great Northern railway  to this camp,  "J. J. Hill, one of the shrewdest of  railroad presidents, would not enter  this district unless he had thoroughly  investigated the possibilities of large  profits and large profits to him must  necessarily mean prosperity for the  district."  MR. GRAHAM.  Mr. William A. Graham, who is an  eastern newspaper man and whose  training, therefore, has been to observe carefully and note impartially,  spoke with much enthusiasm of what  he saw. "It is good betting that tne  verdict of our party is unanimously in  favor of a_splendid _future_ for.,the  Boundary country. The ores are here  and the capital for development is  coming in. Railroad facilities are  already remarkably good and they are  soon to be better. Fuel will be more  easily obtained, though there is no  serious trouble even now in that regard. Mines are being opened and  rapidly developed and three fine smelters are busy preparing the mattes for  the refiners. There are copper and  silver and gold in the ores and though  the ores belong in the low grade class,  there can be no question of theirshow-  ing a fine profit for the mining and  handling. It has been a great pleasure  to n*e to meet the people here,   as   well  as to examine the mines.- We have  had a most royal welcome, and we can  never forget it."  MR BOISE.  Mr. Quincy Ward Boise of New York,  counsel for the company and-connected  with the underwriting syndicate, said:  "Of course 1 was not so surprised at  what I saw as were some of the other  members of the party, because the underwriting syndicate has studied and  read full and authentic reports of its  properties, in which were maps showing the workings and the amount of  out. But these reports did not include  the wonderful showing made in the  Rawhide, nor the ledge of ore in the  Idaho which was exposed by thecut being made by the Great Northern road  at Phoenix. It seems to me that these  two properties of themselves could supply enough ore to keep the furnaces in  blast indefinitely. Another thing that  the reports did not show was the character of the general manager and his  assistants. It is evident that Mr.  Pemberton has the capacity and the  ability to handle the enterprise in the  most enonomical manner, and that he  is using his ability so to do.  Among the most gratifying incidents  of the trip was the courteous treatment  and hospitality that were extended to  us by all the people of Greenwood and  Ph.oenix with whom we came in contact, and for myself I shall be most  happy to reciprocate whenever opportunity arises."  SENATOR MILLER.  "I have been greatly surprised and  delighted at the magnitude of the properties the Montreal and Boston has  consolidated, and that the ore bodies  are so far developed as to make it certain that there was an unlimited supply of ore. One of the great advantages of their situation was that they  had combined a number of mines which  would produce ores of a quality that  are required for successful smelting.  Instead of having to go out to procure  fluves thsir mines contain all the qualities for fluxes, and besides carry value  so that the company is not obliged to  purchase iron, lime and other ores that  carry no values except for fluxing.  As the matter how stands* it is simply  a question of management, and the  magnitude of the operation and treatment of ores that might be called low  grade and which, if properly handled  with proper business capacity, there  would be no doubt as to leaving a fair  margin of profit.  The magnitnde of the ore bodies  make it possible to carry on operation  to almost any extent, not limited to.  1200 to 2000 tons per day. The company ought not to be satisfied with a  production of less than 3000 tons per  day, which the size of the mines will  permit them to produce without difficulty and which would necessarily  leave a.fair.-.profit, for. dividends upon  the stock of the company in general  condition reduced to the ordinary rule  of industrial and manufacturing oper-  tion. A wise management and a large  production and I believe that the Company will be found competent to carry  on operation upon such a magnitude  as to make the Montreal and Boston  one of the great coppe.1 producing properties of the world."  MR- MACDONALD.  Mr. Charles Macdonald of New York,  said-:  "Whi'e I am not a mining engineer  and cannot express myself as an expert, I have  had  sufficient experience  as a civil engineer to be able to say  thai, afler having make a critical examination of the mining development  and the smelting plant of the Montreal  and Boston company. I feel warranted  in saying that the ore in sight, which  is simply enormous iu quantity, can be  takou out at a less cost than the estimates made to us hy the management  It can be smelted at as low a cost as in  any of the smelters of the district and  if the ore values prove to be at least  equal to those already demonstrated in  other neighboring properties, the success of the Montreal aud Boston Consolidated should be assured. Of this I  am coufideiit, from what I have been  able to see of the management of these  properties the company will be able to  present very satisfactory results to the  stockholders  Onr reception bv the residents in and  about Greenwood has been more than  we could possibly have expected and  we feel under very great obligations  for their uniform courtesy and hospitality."  MR. WHICHER.  E. B. Whicher, of the New York  banking house of Ives & Which ar, has  had considerable experience in connection with mining enterprises. He has  made a caieful investigation of the  Montreal and Boston Copper Co's  properties, and he says: 'In expressing  my opinion of the result of my visit to  the Boundary country for the purpose  of investigating the smelter plant and  mines of the Montreal and Boston Co.,  I am pleased to say that I have been  most agreeably surprised with what I  have seen and am prepared to endorse  the enterprise most enthusiastically.  Incidentally I am impressed with the  great possibilities of the district. In  this.connection I cannot help comparing it with other mining sections I  have visited, and I. pleased to say that  your district does not suffer by such  comparison, for while the ores appear  to be of lower grade than those of  Montana, Arizona and Mexico, the difference in value is fully compensated  by the enormous tonnage that exists,  and the ease and economy with which  it can be mined, the accessibility of  the mines, the splendid railroad facilities, ample supply of water, labor, etc.  Your district has now passed the experimental stage and I predict clear  sailing for you, and that the industry  i".s now represented by the Granby,  Montreal and Boston, and British Columbia companies is only in its infancy."  MR.   SNYDER.  Edward Snyder of New York, the engineer, said':  "I was greatly impressed with the  possibilities of the consolidated properties of the Montreal and Boston Co.  They now have all the different ores  necessary for fluxing, in other words  they have a complete smelting proposition. They have an up-to-date smelter  capable of expansion to an almost unlimited extent, and they have the properties developed to supply all the ore  necessary-..for.._years^.to.���cbme._.���/rheir  output will be only limited by the  smelting capacity. I am reporting on  these properties for Col. George Pope  of the Pope Manufacturing Company,  and president of the Montreal and  Boston Co., and mj- report to him will  be very favorable."  MR. MITCHELL.  Mr. '-'Wi'liam E. Mitchell of New  York, who is a mining engineer, made  a careful examination of the properties  of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated  and his conclusions regarding the  Boundary country are, therefore, of  value and interest.    He said:  "I made a careful examination of the  smelter plant and mines of the Montreal and Boston Consolidated Mining  Co. situated m llu- various mining  | camps around Greenwood, B. C. The  mines have all been opened up so that  it is possible to say that the tonnage  in sight is very large. The large ore  bodies are to be found alongside of the  porphery intrusion which have cut  through the diorite and limestone of  the country. I have been advised by  the superintendent that these ores  average from S4 to S10 iu value, principally in copper and gold with a little  silver. The great feature of this camp  is the self fluxing qualities of the ores.  The various mines all have good surface plants, either built or building,  with ample power fordeep mining and  handling many thousands of tons of  ore per day on an economical basis.  The railroad facilities for the transportation of the ores to the smelter are  good and the rates cheap. There is an  abundance of timber for all mining  purposes. The smelter plant, situated  at Boundary Falls, is well constructed  so as to allow of ready increase. The  furnaces are well built and give excellent results. The management is undoubtedly doing everything to operate  the properties an an economical basis,  which will mean success.  "The trip to Greenwood has been a  most enjoyable one. The courtesies  which were showered upon all of our  party by the people of Greenwood and  vicinity, and our hosts, Messrs.Munroe  & Mttnioe, will always make us remember the Boundary country with  feelings of pleasure."  MR. FISH.  Mr. Charles S. Fish of the bankir.g  house of George Kissam & Co., of New  York, was an interested observer of  the mining properties of this wonderful Boundary country, paying particular attention, of course, to the mines  and smelter of the Montreal and Boston  Consolidated, of which he is a director.  To a Times  representative he said:���  "I regard the Boundary country as  one having a great future before it.  With its practically inexhaustable ore  deposits I see no reason why it should  not become one of the largest copper  producing sections of the continent. It  appears to me that its producing capacity is limited only to its smelting  facilities. Regarding the mines and  smelter of the Montreal and Boston  Consolidated, I consider them as a  whole a most valuable mining' property.  The amount of ore now in sight will  take many years to mine and smelt. I  regard any money placed in this  country as an investment that will  eventually bring large returns. The  climate, in so far as I am able to judge  during my short stay, is simply perfect, enabling the propertj' to be worked all the year around. I was much  impressed with the spirit of enterprise  I observed among the citizens of the  Boundary country and am amazed at  the great progress shown in its development in so short a time. During  my stay I was the recipient of the most  courteous and hospitable treatment,  and I'returht'othe ~easVwith"many re-"~  grets that I was unable to prolong my  visit for a much longer period. I shall  anticipate with much pleasure my next  visit to this  most charming country."  J. G.

The Spokane papers announce the  marriage of Philip McDonald of Green  wood, and Margaret Short. We infer  that the visit of Phil's venerable parents to Greenwood recently is already  bearing fruit, for they doubtless gave  him some good sound advice.  Engineer Jeffery reports that once  again the Helen lead has been caught  looking larger and richer than ever.  The management of this property is  very much encouraged over its present  appearance. On any kind of an even  .chance an ore shoot can't elude Jeffery.  J. W. McBride cf Bolster was in  town this week. He reports things  generally moving along quietly at  Myers creek. Quite a number of unimportant nnining deals have been recently made but capitalists and mining  men appear to be waiting develop-  mens by the Great Northern railway  in that section before committing  themselves to any enterprise.  The party of Americans interested  in the Montreal and Boston Consolidated, who recently spent several days  here, were banqttetted in Spokane on  their leturn, by some of the Great  Northern Railway officials. The out  look appears now assured that these  gentlomen will be doing things on a  large scale in the Boundary in the  near future, and doubtless the Great  Northern people scent tonnage in the  air. That is right gentlemen, make to  yourself friends of those trying* to  assist the country and in due time  likely to render service to you and  accept service from you. The stones  of the business fabric are sometimes  best cemented by mortar of friendly  regard.  CURLING CLUB.  Annual Meeting Held Last Monday  Evening.���Election of Officers-  I The Greenwood Curling Club is getting on its war paint early this year,  being determined to have everything  in order when the first cold weather  arrives.  The annual meeting of the club was  held in the Windsor Hotel on Monday  evening last and the members were  out in force. The election of officers  resulted in the following selections;  Jas. S. Birnie, President; E. G  Warren,  Vice-President. H. W. Falconer reelected secretary-treasurer. These  officers with MessrsdeVeber, McMynn,  Gordon aud H. L. Johnston form the  committee of management.  The secretary's report showed a substantial balance on hand, and the new  season's campaign was entered upon  with great enthusiasm. The club has  decided to make many improvements  in their rink. The waiting room will  be enlarged and kept comfortably  heated for visiting patrons.

R Wilkie, general manager  of the Imperial Bank,'spotte a very evident truth when he remarked to a Toronto reporter that British Columbia is  being neglected by the rest of the Dominion. He added: British Columbia's  natural products are in competition  with the natural products of the United  States upon a free trade basis and  upon everything she uses she has to  pay dutv. She is not properly recognized by the rest of the Dominion. If  she builds bridges it is at enormous  cost over deep gulches, and she has to  pay for them. Her sparse population  have to carry on great public works at  great cost to themselves per capita.  Her resources are enormous, but need  development. The subject may be enlarged upon to any extent by a review  of the statistics of the province.  GOETHE'S "FAUST."  First Worthy Production of This Immortal Drama by Harold  Nelson's Company.  The visits of the Harold Nelson Dramatic company have come to be eagerly anticipated here, our theatre patrons  having confidence that Mr. Nelson and  his -enterprising manager, Mr. C. P.  Walker, will give them something  really meritorious. The Nelson company is announced to return here on  Thursday, Oct. 13, when will be presented the great religious play, 'Faust.'  There have been other performances of  Faust in JVVestern Canada, but until  this Nelson production, none have been  worthy of the immorta1 drama. Mr.  Walker, to make this a notable presentation, startling in its realism, spent  much money for scenery, costumes and  electrical equipment, and promises an  extraordinary protrayal. Such scenes  as the Inferno, with its rain of fire and  the beautiful Garden scene, will eclipse  anything in the line of stage realism  ever attempted in the West. Mr. Nelson will be seen as Mephisto, and will  be supported by a specially strong company of players, including Miss Helene  Scott as Marguerite and Mr. Clifford  Lane Bruce as Faust.  ���$ *<k**<k--��xk-><-'<----x^  y a  |Everybody Uses Soap!
